The Chinese development firm has signed an agreement to purchase The Docks riverfront restaurant complex in East Toledo’s International Park.

Oregon native Natalie Cummerow was an instructor in the optometric ophthalmic technology department at Owens Community College in the early 1990s when all of a sudden, everything went dark.
Cummerow, whose job was to teach students how to make eyeglasses and how to do preliminary vision testing on patients, was grading papers when her vision…disappeared.
“It was gone for 45 minutes and then it was back,” she said. “I knew it was serious, just from working in that field.”
Cummerow learned that her vision loss was caused by a blood clot that had formed in her eye. There was still more bad news to come for Cummerow, who at that time was married and raising three children ages 2, 5 and 8.
She needed a heart transplant – at age 34.
Roberta Gacsal, a surgical technician and later registered nurse at St. Charles Mercy Hospital since 1959, had been dealing with pain for some time.
“I had slipped and didn’t actually fall, but I must have done something to the hip area. I had gone and had pain pills. I’ve had epidermals and nothing seemed to help it,” Gacsal said.
Then she found an ancient form of Chinese medicine that is claimed to stimulate and increase the flow of vital energy, Qi (pronounced “chee”), throughout the body. Most of us know this procedure as acupuncture.
This is accomplished by inserting needles at very precise acupuncture points located near or on the surface of the skin. Acupuncture points are explained as “areas of decreased electrical resistance.” These areas have been plotted out by Chinese practitioners for over 2,000 years and have been shown to be effective in treating specific conditions, literature from a local clinic claims.
