“A moment lasts all of a second, but the memory lives on forever.”

This framed saying hangs on the wall of Simply Stated & Painted, a ceramics shop at 3322 Glanzman Road. It’s something that could be found on a magnet in a department store or in pretty typography on Pinterest. But for Dayna Kasten-Briggs, the words resonated.

One of the biggest concerns a retiree has is outliving his or her income. In financial terms that is called a longevity risk. It can be hard for a family to figure out how much they will need to have saved up because we never know how long someone will live. No matter how many charts, graphs and projections one makes, still the question is, what if you live to 100 or beyond? Will the money last as long as you do?

To help address that concern for many retirees we have put together a few answers to common questions retiree’s …read more

As part of a family that has been doing business in the city since 1909, beginning with his great-grandfather’s hardware store, Reddish said he opened Reddish Printing with the intention of celebrating the city’s potential.

When your heart begins to fail">When your heart begins to fail

By Guest Author

.

Congestive heart failure is a serious condition that affects millions of Americans and their families. Yet, many don’t fully understand this deadly disease where the heart is unable to effectively pump blood to meet the body’s demands.

.

People with congestive heart failure may find it difficult to do everyday activities like walking or carrying groceries because the body’s cells are not getting the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood they need. They may have fatigue, shortness of breath, an irregular heartbeat, swelling in their legs, ankles and feet, weight gain, and chest pain. When a person has a heart that is weak (your …read more

I will not be watching the Super Bowl this Sunday night.

.

For anyone who knows me, this is hardly shocking news. I rarely express any interest in anything related to football, whether on the college or professional level. Most of my friends naturally assumed I would spend Sunday night playing video games or sleeping or marathoning Martin Scorsese movies or whatever else they imagine I do in my spare time. (Most of the time, these people would be correct.)
But even though I am hardly the most avid football fan, and not-so-secretly believe it is massively overrated as a sport, even I …read more

For more than 15 years, Stephen Machcinski fought fires, responded to medical calls and saved lives in Toledo. Until Jan. 26, 2014, only his friends and family knew his name.
One of his last calls was to the North Toledo home of Tina Petersen, who had a seizure in January 2014. A few days later, Petersen recognized the Toledo Fire & Rescue Department EMTs who had responded — Machcinski and fellow Toledo firefighter James Dickman — in a news story about a fatal fire. She attended the June rededication of Fire Station No. 3 to introduce herself to the Machcinski and …read more
