Toledo sits north of what had been the Great Black Swamp, giving rise to another nickname, ''Frog Town.'' An important ecological site, Toledo sits within the borders of a sandy oak savanna called the Oak Openings Region that once took up

the Great Black Swamp, which covered an area between New Haven and present-day Toledo (Toledo, Ohio), Ohio.

to treat the malaria prevalent in the area of the Great Black Swamp). At the County Commission session on June 6, 1831, the formation of a second township, Jackson (Jackson Township, Allen County, Ohio), was approved. In 1916 Vallejo moved to Lima, where he studied at National University of San Marcos, read, worked as a schoolteacher, and came into contact with artistic and political avant-garde. While in Lima he also produced his first poetry collection, ''Los Heraldos Negros (Los heraldos negros).'' Despite its publication year of 1918, the book was actually published a year later. It is also heavily infuenced by the poetry and other writings of fellow Peruvian Manuel González Prada, who had only recently died. Vallejo then suffered a number of calamities over the next few years: he refused to marry a woman with whom he had an affair and thus lost his teaching post, his mother died in 1920, and he went to prison for 105 days for alleged intellectual instigation of a partisan skirmish in his hometown, Santiago de Chuco. Nonetheless, 1922 he published his second volume of poetry, ''Trilce,'' which is still considered one of the most radically avant-garde poetry collections in the Spanish language. After publishing the short story collections ''Escalas melografiadas'' and ''Fabla salvaje'' in 1923, Vallejo emigrated to Europe under the threat of further incarceration and remained there until his death in Paris in 1938. 1990s The 1990s brought a series of changes. Deregulation of the Mexican airline industry brought new competitors. Seeking to remain competitive, the airline updated their fleet with European-built Airbus A320 (Airbus A320 family)s in 1991 and Dutch Fokker F100s in 1992. In 1993, a reorganized AeroMéxico took over as the company struggled financially. During the mid-1990s, the Mexican economy was hard-hit by the devaluation of the Mexican peso and Mexicana, AeroMéxico, and their regional affiliates were nationalized when their parent company, CINTRA (Corporación Internacional de Transporte Aereo), was taken over by the government. The airlines remained in their merged state until 2005. As happened in 1967, a new management team was hired, this time headed by President and CEO, Fernando Flores. The company was reorganized and rationalized, with a new emphasis placed on international service. Unprofitable routes were cut and the DC-10s were retired. The airline ventured deep into South America by adding flights to Lima, Peru, Santiago de Chile, and Buenos Aires, Argentina and further into North America, adding flights to Montreal, Canada. To operate these new and longer routes, the airline leased Boeing 757s. Another aspect of this reorganization involved the creation of alliance (airline alliance)s. Mexicana was part of regional alliances LatinPass and Alas de America, and they later formed an alliance with United Airlines. This latter alliance brought Mexicana into the network of global alliances, as it eventually led the airline into the Star Alliance. Recognizing the usefulness and importance of the Internet, the airline launched a website and eventually included a reservation center. Also around this time, Mexicana adopted a new color scheme, with assorted colors on the tails of their planes. Pre-Columbian The prehistoric Tello Obelisk, found in 1919 at ''Chavín de Huantar'' in Peru, is a monolith stele with obelisk-like proportions. It was carved in a design of low relief with Chavín symbols, such as bands of teeth and animal heads. Long housed in the ''Museo Nacional de Arqueología, Antropología e Historia del Perú'' in Lima, it was relocated to the ''Museo Nacional de Chavín'', which opened in July 2008. The obelisk was named for the archeologist Julio C. Tello, who discovered it and was considered the "father of Peruvian archeology." He was America's first indigenous (Indigenous peoples of the Americas) archeologist. Richard L. Burger, Abstract of "The Life and Writings of Julio C.
