The AIDS epidemic was a tragic era in American history, but it's kind of yesterday's news, right?
And if you're not a gay male, it really isn't anything to be worried about anyway.
Unless you talk to Denise Neiding.
The 62-year-old Toledo grandmother has been HIV-positive since 2008. Being white and middle class didn't protect her.
"I was married for over 20 years until my husband left me for a much-younger woman." Trying to feel better about herself, and boost her severely damaged ego, Neiding admits, "I got a little rebellious and had a little promiscuous spell in my life."
She paid dearly for that spell.
Neiding was a featured panelist at the "Voices of Women Affected by HIV/AIDS" program held Wednesday in the Women's Center at Bowling Green State University.

MILLBURY - Teamwork was once again a topic for the Lake Township Trustees.
At Tuesday's meeting, the trustees agreed to be part of a group looking at grants and other ways to improve Millbury's parks and link with a national bike trail.
Two representatives of Poggemeyer Design Group, Bowling Green, talked to the trustees about joining the village of Millbury in pursuing grants to be part of the North Coast Inland Trail. The trail, according to the website, aspires to connect Indiana to Pennsylvania, requiring roughly a 270-mile west-to-east ribbon of trail through Ohio. A 170-mile portion of the route extends from the Indiana border, just west of the north fork of the Wabash Cannonball Trail, over to Lorain.
Northwood school levy fails in new vote count PDF Print E-mail

NORTHWOOD - School officials are seeking input from community members for what to do with aging facilities.
The district's combined bond issue and income tax to fund a new school building was defeated in November by two votes.
On election night the combined 0.25-percent earned income tax and a 4.9-mill property tax failed by five votes, 699 against the taxes and 694 in favor.
But the count of provisional ballots changed the total to 702 against and 700 in favor and the recount maintained those totals.
The taxes would have paid for a new 130,000-square-foot school that would have opened in 2016.
District Superintendent Greg Clark is asking community members to attend the board of education meeting Tuesday to discuss options.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. and Clark expects the facilities discussion to start at 7. The meeting will be held in the high school auditorium.
Perrysburg debates SRO job PDF Print E-mail

PERRYSBURG - Some city council members say they're on the fence about whether to budget for a school resource officer in 2014.
There was support for the program in October at a meeting of the Service-Safety Committee, but a first reading of the budget during Tuesday's council meeting prompted several others to express their reservations.
An existing officer would be assigned to the high school, and administrators have requested funds for a new officer in the budget to replace the SRO on patrol. The city would be reimbursed by the school district for 69 percent of the $75,617 cost of the officer's salary and benefits, or $52,175, leaving its share for an additional police officer at $23,442.
Police Chief Dan Paez and Superintendent Tom Hosler supported the effort in October, with Paez noting that it wouldn't just be an officer patrolling the schools, but someone there who could build relationships with students and learn about some problems before they escalated.
