Council hears of more cost-cutting
Herald Editor
DELPHOS Delphos firefighter
union representative Corey Myer gave
Delphos City Council a list of proposals
the bargaining unit and city administra-
tion recently collaborated on to reduce
costs by $30,000 through years end.
The list included eight hours fur-
lough time per pay period for all fire
department bargaining unit employ-
ees, which would generate approxi-
mately $5,000. The fire chief would
cover the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. shift and a
respective employee would finish the
24-hour shift from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m.
In the event an employee takes
time off, the fire chief would cover 8
a.m. to 4 p.m., an employee working
4 p.m. to midnight would work at
straight time, saving overtime costs,
and then work midnight to 8 a.m. at
the appropriate overtime rate.

United Way goal in Delphos
is to help more people
Herald Editor
DELPHOS The United Way provided
services and resources to more than 3,600
Delphos residents last year. President and
CEO of United Way of Greater Lima Philip N.
Hayne brought a simple message to Delphos
on Tuesday.
We want help 10 percent more people
this year than we did last year, he said. We
want to help people in crisis and assist them
in fulfilling their dreams.
Hayne teamed up with United Way of Van
Wert County Executive Director Deb Russell
for a kickoff luncheon at the Delphos Senior
Citizen Center, an agency both United Ways
contribute funds to. Center Director Joyce
Hale is more than happy to host the luncheon.
The United Way is a great organization,
she said. I dont know where you get more
bang for your buck when you make a donation.
The goal this year in not going to be
marked in donated dollars as much as by
those the funds will help.
Last year, we touched over 49,000 lives
through our partner agencies. Thats about
half the population of Allen County, Hayne
said. So we set our goal of raising the bar
to 50,500 lives, rather than focusing just on

School Board meeting began
with presenter Cheryl Ryan,
deputy director from Ohio
School Boards Association.
Ryan presented a proposal in
the search for a new superin-
tendent for the district.
Your board of educa-
tion faces a critical task of
choosing a superintendent
of schools. While the super-
intendent search process is
always a challenging period
for any board, today you face
the additional difficulty of
selecting a new chief execu-
tive officer in an unprece-
dented time of school reform
and political attention to edu-
cation issues, Ryan said. In
addition, the turnover among
superintendents has acceler-
ated in recent years, which
has created fierce competi-
tion among states and dis-
tricts for the highest caliber
professionals who can suc-
ceed in the complex role of
superintendent. It is prudent
that the board engage the
services of a consultant who
specializes in this field to
assist the board in its super-
intendent search.
Ryan said the proposal
offers maximum flexibility to
the board, assures they have
total control over all key deci-
sions and allows the board
to concentrate on the most
critical steps in a search-pro-
filing the selection criteria,
interviewing the most quali-
fied candidates, checking the
references of the finalists and
selecting the next superinten-
Our goal is to conduct a
highly professional search that
will not only attract the very
best candidates, but will bring
credit for the manner in which
the process was conducted,
Ryan added.

Spencerville Village Council
discussed the legal steps to be
taken to expedite razing two
homes which are dilapidated
and whose owners have not
given consent for demolition

As reported from the Sept.

contacting Amy Odum with

that time, the signatures from
two property owners had not
been obtained for consent for
demo and the deadline was
Aug. 31. Odum and Feltner
both suggested the homes
be condemned through the
health department, eliminat-

Hands for Heroes 5 to benefit veterans, Haiti

LIMA Shawnee Community
United Methodist Churchs
(CommUMC) 5th annual half-mar-
athon and 5-kilometer road race set
for Sept. 28 in Shawnee Township
will have a new look in 2013 as fund-
raising efforts will not only focus on
heroes in Haiti but also veteran heroes
who need our help as they acclimate to
life back at home.
Rebranded as Hands 4 Heroes 5,
all proceeds from this years event
will benefit Team RWB (http://
teamrwb.org/), a 501c3 organization
whose mission is to enrich the lives
of Americas veterans by connect-
ing them to their community through
physical and social activity, as well as
the CommUMC Haiti Mission, which
provides water, education and health-
care in Northern Haiti.
The race will donate all proceeds
to Team RWB and its Haiti mission.
Since 2009, the race has raised more
than $40,000. According to race direc-
tor Andrea DeVoe Ross, the half-
marathon and 5K races were created
originally to support Haiti but have
expanded this year to support local
veterans. As in years past, the event
also aims to bring a healthy family
activity to Lima.
My husband and I are both Navy
veterans and extremely involved in
helping veterans have great experi-
ences in our current roles, Ross said.
Through that work, I know that more
than 2.5 million men and women
have deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan
since 2001 and many come back and
struggle to assimilate back into life
at home. I know first-hand that Team
RWB provides a safe place for these
men and women to come out and hang
out with other members
of the community while
engaging in healthy pur-

60-mile radius of our town,
so we wanted to provide an
opportunity for local run-

and first timersto be able to save
some money on travel costs and come
out and enjoy a good race with us,
Ross continued. To host a number
of these brave heroes and to see them
running up Zurmehly Road carrying
our American flag is going to be awe-
Participants in the half-marathon
can look forward to 13 water and food
stops, an energy gel stop midway,
technical T-shirts, nice-quality medals
to all finishers, tons of food at the fin-
ish line and cash prizes.
The race course itself is mostly
flat and traverses paved country roads
and one spooky bridge. In addition to
fields of wheat, corn and soybeans,
runners may also see a few cows and
a whole bunch of race volunteers

Park waiting on electric,
hydrants for completion
Staff Writer
Village council held its regu-
lar monthly meeting Tuesday
night and discussed the
ongoing park improvements
including the trenching of
electric lines from the tennis
courts to the pump and new
fire hydrants.
Mayor Jim Smith said
that nothing can be done yet
with the electric until the
new pump is installed, which
should happen in the near
At this time, the village is
looking for quotes to finish
up the remaining electrical
Maintenance Supervisor
Ted Wrasman spoke on the
new fire hydrants that will be
installed in the park soon.
We wont have to blow
the lines, Wrasman said.
The plumbing drains itself,
at least thats the plan.
Since the park shuts off the
water to the park facilities,
there are no Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA)
tests from Nov. 1 through
April 1.
Smith reported that the
new restroom facility is basi-
cally done.
Park Board President Jerry
Siefker said the crew working
at the park has not announced
a completion date yet.
They have a few things to
wrap up, Siefker added.
Siefker announced the
outcome of the Park Board
elections where Kari Amstutz
was voted in the new vice
president and Katie Etgen
won the secretary position.
In addition, the park board
has acquired two new mem-
bers and three members have
During Augusts meet-
ing, Smith addressed the
failed water pump issue with
council, who discussed and
approved the purchase of a
new Barnes Pump at a cost
of $7,625. Smith said the
EPA recommends an extra
pump and council agreed the
old pump may be rebuilt so
that it would become a spare.
Council approved taking the
pump to a testing/repair facil-
ity in Norwalk.
After inspection of the
failed pump by Bennet
Electric in Norwalk, the esti-
mate to repair the old pump
would cost $4,000 weld-
ing, bearings, etc. and not
feasible for a piece of equip-
ment that is almost obsolete.
Smith thought the village
could hold off buying a back-
up pump and resort to using
an existing Diesel pump or
borrowing a back up from
another community in case of
an emergency. Council also
agreed to let Bennet keep
the old pump for parts and
During the Maintenance
Report in August, Smith
discussed the villages trac-
tor, which has had some
mechanical issues in the
past. Smith asked Wrasman
to get quotes which have
been slow to get into the
villages hands. Currently,
Northwest Tractor and
Kennedy Coon have sent
quotes and the costs dont
match up. Council will look
for tractor quotes during the
next council meeting.

9 year old girl turns birthday
gifts into birthday donation
Information submitted
VAN WERT A surprisingly,
mature-beyond-her-years 9-year-
old girl recently presented Van Wert
County Hospital with a bountiful bag
of gifts that she unselfishly forewent
at her most recent birthday party.
This year, Whitley Fast, a third
grade student at Van Wert Elementary
School, requested that her only birth-
day wish be to give to those in need.
I felt sorry for the kids that
needed things, Fast said when
asked how she decidedly sacrificed
her own gifts for others. It was then
that she and her mother contacted
the hospital regarding her wish.
With the help of her parents, Tisha
and David Fast, Fast prepared her
guests for her noble gift-giving. At
the time of receiving an invitation
to her birthday party, her friends and
family members were informed of
her request to forego gifts for her-
self, but to instead, bring a gift to be
donated to the hospital.
Everyone was extremely sup-
portive, she said. They donated
coloring books, crayons, markers,
sketch books, activity books and a
stuffed animal.
Fast was excited to bring her gifts
into the hospital. I could see on her
face when she arrived at the hospital
that just bringing in the gifts for oth-
ers made her ninth birthday even more
special for her. It was an invaluable
gift for Whitley, too, in immeasurable
ways, said Sammi Joseph, Director of
Inpatient Services.
The hospital is much obliged by
Fasts donation. Inpatient children
and adolescents of all ages will ben-
efit from her donated items. Many
of the items will be placed in the
inpatient community area so that
children who may be admitted to the
hospital have the option of playing
with and utilizing the items through-
out the day for entertainment.
Her donation will provide an
alternative means of activity for our
inpatient children. Hopefully, some-
thing as genuine as having a gift,
given from the heart, available for
their daytime rec-
reation will help
them to keep their
minds occupied and delight them
during their stay. Our happy heal-
ers are healthier healers, Sheila
Brokenshire, Vice President of
Nursing, said.
This time of year, especially, Van
Wert County Hospital welcomes gra-
cious thought-inspired gift-giving.
As we approach the holiday
season, it is overwhelmingly-heart-
warming to know that generous
individuals have selflessly placed
others above themselves. Being in
the hospital doesnt nearly compare
to the joy of celebrating with friends
and loved ones at home but, con-
sidering the circumstances, it is
certainly rewarding to see a sparkle
in our guests eyes as we surprise
our patients with a glimmer of spirit
and hope during their stay with us.
It is donations, such as Whitleys,
that are able to provide that essence
of kindred love to them and for that,
we are grateful, Joseph said.
Fast and countless other indi-
viduals have willfully donated and
volunteered their time and efforts
toward making Van Wert County
Hospital the most caring and com-
passionate place to receive health-
care services.
We thank Whitley and her family
for thinking of us and our patients.
We are certainly blessed by her self-
less generosity, Joseph said.
Van Wert County Hospital is ded-
icated to helping provide hope and
healing to patients and to improving
health and wellness for the entire
community. To become a volun-
teer or learn more about ways that
you can help make a difference in

Joe, boys chase
down errant calf
We feel blessed to have
received some much needed
rain tonight. It wasnt that
much but it will help. We
havent had any rain in quite
some time, so
everything was dry.
Today, daugh-
ters Susan and
Verena and I went
to sister Emmas
house to assist
them in preparing
for the upcoming
church services
they will host at
their house. Lord
willing, daugh-
ters Elizabeth and
Susan will be baptized that
day. Susans special friend
Mose will also be baptized
with them. What a blessing to
see them want to accept Jesus
Christ as their Savior.
Last Friday we had four
calves delivered here. All
four together weighed 785
pounds. We put them in the
barn. When Joe came home,
he moved them to an out-
side pen. With it being a new
place to the calves, they were
pretty wild and two of them
escaped through the fence.
Joe and Susan were able to
catch one but the other one
took off for the woods behind
us. Joe and the children and
some of our neighbors looked
all over and only heard from
one person that saw it. After
3 1/2 hours of searching, they
finally gave up. In the next
few days, Joe and the boys
kept looking and no sign of
the calf.
Before we came home
from helping Emma, the
neighbor boy ran over to let
Joe know he spotted the calf.
Joe, Benjamin and Joseph
took off to try to capture
it. When they
got closer, the
calf took off but
Benjamin was able
to catch up with
it and wrestled it
to the ground and
took a rope and
held it down until
Joe and Joseph
caught up.
So now, five
days later, it is
finally back in our
barn and looks like its still
doing okay. We had almost
given up that we would ever
see it again. I think Joe and I
will sleep much better tonight
knowing that calf is back in
the barn. It was also a worry
that it could get out on a road
and cause an accident.
The reason Joe wanted
the calves to feed out is that
we are getting 400 bushels
of corn that we are trading
with a nearby farmer for our
beans. Whenever the calves
get big enough, we will keep
one or two to butcher for our
beef and sell the rest.
I told the children not
to give the calves names or
to make pets out of them
because they will be our food
someday. I still remember
when I was a young girl at
home, dad butchered one of
our old milk cows named
Whitey. Some of us children
had a hard time eating the
beef that year because we
used to milk Whitey and we
didnt want to eat her.
When daughter Elizabeth
was younger and she saw us
butcher chickens, it dawned
on her that thats where
chicken comes from. It took
her a long time before she
could eat chicken again.
Thats farm life, I guess.
Pumpkin season will soon
be here-try this fudge:
Pumpkin Fudge
3 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons light corn
teaspoon salt
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup milk
cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie
cup butter
Butter or grease one 8 x 8
inch pan.
In a 3-quart saucepan, mix
together sugar, milk, corn
syrup, pumpkin and salt.
Bring to a boil over high heat,
stirring constantly. Reduce
heat to medium and continue
boiling. Do not stir. When
mixture registers 232 degrees
F (110 degrees C) on candy
thermometer, or forms a soft
ball when dropped into cold
water, remove pan from heat.
Stir in pumpkin pie spice,
vanilla and butter. Cool to
lukewarm (110 degrees F or

its gloss. Quickly pour into a

firm, cut into 36 squares.

Top-ranked Lady
Flyers sweep St. Johns
Staff Writer
DELPHOS Marion Local came into Tuesday nights Midwest
Athletic Conference volleyball match versus St. Johns as Division IVs
top-ranked team.
The Lady Flyers lived up to that billing as they rolled over the Lady
Blue Jays 25-6, 25-7, 25-10 at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium.
Marion Local is just awesome. I know how good they are: I had
their outside hitter, Gina Kramer; their libero, who dug up everything;
and another player on my club team this year, St. Johns coach Carolyn
Dammeyer said. They do so many things well. Weve already played
Coldwater (ranked 1st in Division III) and New Knoxville but this is the
strongest team weve played; our serve-receive really struggled today.
We have some other tough foes to play; I consider these opportunities
for the kids because these teams only make you better at what youre

Kalida is a fast, physical,
talented team that is going
to come at you all day, St.
Johns coach John Munoz
said. We knew what we were
facing because we had played
them this summer. What I was
disappointed in was that we
didnt match them physically;
we went away from that. We
backed down a little bit. We
made a defensive mistake on
their first goal and then we
made another on their second;
we just dont seem to be able
to recover.

1st QB start a charm for Dovers Kyle Abel
Associated Press
Kyle Abel must have been saving it up.
Dover rallied from an 11-point second-
quarter deficit and scored 40 unanswered
points en route to a 53-24 win over Canfield
last week to improve to 3-0 on the season.
Abel, a surprise starter, was 22-of-32
passing for 419 yards, four TDs and no
interceptions. It was Abels first start at QB
at any level after Merrick Mamarella started
the first two games.
Hes got a gun, Dover coach Dan Ifft
said of Abel. He doesnt have the savvy of a
veteran quarterback but that will come with
time. He did a nice job out there.
Shay Smith had nine catches for 201
yards and two scores and Cory Contini

the first quarter and Rettig returned the free
kick 61 yards for yet another score as he
accounted for 36 of the 50 points Arlington
had in the opening period of a 70-7 romp.

Miller near return but Guitons been terrific
Associated Press
COLUMBUS For most of the last four years, Kenny Guiton
stood around and watched other quarterbacks get all the attention
and playing time at Ohio State.
Now is his time well, at least until
Saturdays noon kickoff against Florida
Then the spotlight might just be
switched back to 3-year starter and
Heisman Trophy finalist Braxton Miller,
who is coming back from a sprained
knee ligament.
No matter what, Guiton says he can
handle it.
Thats the coaches decision. Im
happy with whatever they decide to do,
the fifth-year senior answered of the
dilemma facing coach Urban Meyer and his staff. Im all with the
team. Ive been like that for 4 1/2 years. Why change now?
Almost the same question is facing Meyer: Why change quar-
terbacks now?
Guiton has been brilliant since taking over for Miller early
against San Diego State two weeks ago. Guiton has turned into the
Mariano Rivera of closers, making every big play with almost no
mistakes and all but erasing the other teams hopes.
Hes completed 67 percent of his passes (41-of-61) for seven
touchdowns with just one interception. His quarterback efficiency
rating, if you put much stock in such measurements, is a tad higher
than Millers. And hes 2-0 while running the show.
Having two quality players at a spot where theres only room
for one right now presents a daunting but also interesting problem.
Well, the obvious ones are one starts and one plays a couple
of series, Meyer replied Tuesday when asked to go over what his
options might be. Another is if Braxtons not healthy, then hes
kind of a guy (wed use) in case of an emergency situation. Then
the other is maybe a couple of plays with both of them on the field,
being creative and trying to get your best players on the field.
Could Miller be used as an H or hybrid back in Ohio States
attack? Could Guiton be in the same backfield with Miller and be
a threat on a quick-pitch pass while rolling out?
These and other questions spice up a week in which the
Buckeyes are favored by, oh, a thousand points against a Football
Championship Subdivision foe.
Ohio State has had several quarterback controversies just
in the last 20 years. In most cases, those players had dramati-
cally different skill sets. What makes this situation unique is that
Guiton and Miller have somewhat similar talents.
Miller is listed as probable for FAMU. Meyer has always
said that a player doesnt lose his starting job because of an injury.
Then again, he added that anyone can earn their way onto the
first team.
So Miller or Guiton? Somethings got to give.
We didnt have that dilemma a year ago. Not dilemma,
but luxury, Meyer said of the days when Miller was considered
a superstar and Guiton just a kid on the sideline waiting his turn.
If (Kenny) is one of the best 11, you have an obligation to get
him on the field a little bit.
Miller hasnt spoken publicly since his injury. But he and
Guiton are good friends who have both benefited from having
the other around.
Miller is elusive as a runner and an above-average passer. Hes
a comet in the open field and a nightmare for lone tacklers.

Browns clear roster
spot for WR Gordon
Associated Press
Cleveland Browns cleared a
roster spot for suspended wide
receiver Josh Gordons return
by waiving wide receiver Tori
Gurley and releasing wide
receiver Arceto Clark.
Gordon was suspended from
Clevelands first two games for
violating the NFLs substance-abuse policy. Hell practice
today and is scheduled to play in Sundays game at Minnesota.
On Monday, Gordon said he was humbled by the experi-
ence. Hes out of chances and confirmed that if he fails another
drug test, hell be suspended for one year. Gordon, who was
suspended in college for marijuana use, caught 50 passes for
805 yards and scored five touchdowns as a rookie.
Commissioner Roger Goodell granted Gordon a roster
exemption, which expires today.
Gurley was promoted from the practice squad to the active
roster Sept. 7. He caught one pass for 15 yards.
Rookies make Bengals offense tough to stop
Associated Press
CINCINNATI Two rookies are
making the Bengals offense tough to stop
so long as Andy Dalton keeps his cool
First-round pick Tyler Eifert and sec-
ond-round choice Giovani Bernard made
the biggest plays during a 20-10 victory
over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday
night that gave Cincinnati (1-1) an early
edge in the AFC North.
Eifert caught a 61-yard pass against
one of the NFLs stingiest defenses, setting
up the first of Bernards two touchdowns.
The running back got the second one by
turning a short pass into a 27-yard score.
Double trouble.
A lot of weapons, man, All-Pro
receiver A.J. Green said. Thats the big-
gest thing.
Players had the day off on Tuesday
before starting their short week of prepa-
ration to host Green Bay (1-1), which is
coming off a 38-20 win over Washington.
One focus will be to keep the momentum
going on offense.
The Bengals only glaring problem on
Monday night was Daltons inconsistency.
He was coming off one of the best games
of his 3-year career, completing 78.7 per-
cent of his throws during a 24-21 opening
loss in Chicago.
Against the Steelers (0-2),
he missed his first three throws,
twice overshooting an open
receiver. Dalton was so revved
up for the game that his aim was
way off.
I had a lot of adrenalin
going and the balls were sailing
a little high on me at the begin-
ning of the game, Dalton said. I came
back and played a lot better in the second
half and we did what it took to win the
Dalton finished 25-of-45 for 280 yards
with the one touchdown to Bernard and
no interceptions. His passer rating of 81.7
was the best in his five career games
against the Steelers, who usually get him
out of sync with their blitzes.
And it wasnt just the passing. The
Bengals also ran for 127 yards and fin-
ished with 407 total yards.
Theyre the first team to get 400 yards
on the Steelers in a non-overtime game
since New England had 453 yards during
a 39-26 victory on Nov. 14, 2010, at Heinz
Field, according to STATS LLC. Last
year, Dallas had 415 yards
in a 27-24 overtime vic-
tory at Cowboys Stadium.
What the Bengals did
on Monday night was rare.
If you can run the ball
well against this team,
you can run the ball well
against a lot of people,
left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. So to
be able to run the ball well, it says some-
thing about the teams potential. Even in
years when weve run the ball really well,
weve had a tough time running it against
Its definitely exciting. We have
a young nucleus thats back and has a
(promising) figure ahead of it.

Elida boys roll
past Van Wert
Staff Writer
ELIDA Elidas boys soccer crew dominated Van Wert
5-0 in Western Buckeye League action under the lights
Monday night at Elida Sports Complex.
We wanted to stay focused both halves and be consistent
the whole way. I think we did that, Elida coach Tom Thomas
said. We wanted to put good possessions together, good
touches, good passes, get good shots and finish well. We did
that. I give Van Wert credit for playing spirited soccer.
Van Wert coach George Scott is trying to get his program
to that point.
Weve got some good players, like Joe Lisa and Jacob
Williamson, that have played soccer a long time, he explained.
Where we cant keep up with good teams like Elida is experi-
ence; all their players have been in the sport for a number of
years and I have many, like Joey Moreland and Matt Bidlack,
who are seniors playing their first years.
Senior Riley Overholt scored twice in the first half for the
host Bulldogs (4-2-1, 2-1-1 WBL).
The first came just 14 seconds into the match, putting the
orb past Cougar keeper Bidlack (5 saves against 8 shots on-
goal in the first half) to put the hosts up 1-0.
As the Bulldogs continued to control the ball in their offen-
sive end most of the first half, junior Adam Ordel made it 2-0
midway through the half.
Overholt put the Bulldogs up 3-0 at the 12:10 mark as he
put a 12-yarder into the back of the cords.
Elida, which was credited with 14 shots on-goal, maintained
ball possession most of the second half and kept attacking the
goal, forcing sophomore keeper Wade Healey (4 saves against
6 shots on-goal in the second half) to come up with stops:
at 34:47, when he denied junior Jerod Houston from the left
wing; at 27:18, when Ordels 25-yarder was stopped; and at
24:07, when senior AJ Siefkers 30-yarder was gathered by
the keeper.
At 23:30, a handball was called in the box on the Cougars.
Sophomore Gaerid Littler got the opportunity and went low
and hard to his left for a 4-0 edge.
At the 21-minute mark, Littler got a great opportunity
behind the defense but Healey came out and deflected the shot
However, Littler would not be stopped at 13:46 made a run
down the left side and found the back of the net from 13 yards
on the wing for a 5-0 edge.
Elida junior netminder Garrett Brinkman faced one shot on-
goal (1 save), coming with 4:10 left as Morelands 20-yarder
was stopped.
Elida visits Shawnee 7 p.m. Thursday.
We wanted to get ready for them today as well, Thomas
added. This has been one of our most traditional rivalries and
its always a good matchup. We know they are going to play
with a lot of emotion from the start and we have to be ready
to match that. I believe we are ready and we will match their
Scott sees steady improvement from his crew.
We are trying to look like a soccer team, Scott added. We
show times when we put good possessions together doing
all the things right to do so but not consistently. It takes time
to put it together but were working hard at it.
Van Wert hosts Bath at 5 p.m. Thursday.
Lady Jeffcats even mark at .500
Staff Writer
ADA Behind the hat trick of
sophomore striker Logan Hamilton,
Jefferson moved its girls soccer record
back to .500 with a 6-2 Northwest
Conference triumph over Ada Monday
evening at War Memorial Park in Ada.
Were down to 14 players right now due
to a couple of injuries but we keep getting
better, we keep improving. We controlled the
game for all but maybe 25 minutes, Jefferson
coach Josiah Stober said. With only having
three subs now, weve had to put girls in dif-
ferent positions than maybe they are used to
but in the end, it might help us. Weve had to
become more all-around players that can play
several spots; that helps versatility and we can
mix and match more with our lineups.
Ada coach Marty Clum has a few more
players 23 players but 10 of them
are freshmen and three are sophomores.
Were growing each game but for
many of these girls, were still making
that adjustment from rec ball to varsity,
he explained. Its a slow process but I see
development every day from this group.
We have good senior leadership and good
athleticism; we just have to keep working
at it. Right now, its more of a mental thing
to get through that barrier of playing for 80
minutes; we have enough depth to rotate
people in. I have no doubt it will happen.
The Bulldogs (0-9, 0-3 NWC) had the
first shot on-goal at the 31:10 mark when
freshman Sydney Slaton tried but Jefferson
junior keeper Kayleigh OConner (5 saves
vs. 8 shots on-goal) got the early stop.
The Wildcats (4-4-1, 2-0-0 NWC) got
their first effort at 24:25 when junior Kylee
Haehn got free in close but Ada freshman
keeper Rielyn Castle (13 saves versus 22
shots on-goal) worked hard to get the save.
However, at 23:37, Jefferson went up
1-0. Haehn got a great 1-on-1 look from
the left wing but Castle deflected the
14-yarder; however, freshman Arianna
Knebel was Johnny-on-the-spot, putting
the ricochet back from in front and the
keeper couldnt quite control the orb.
Haehn nearly made it 2-0 at 22:53 when
she got another good shot from in front but
her pooched shot but eight yards hit the cross-
bar and Castle eventually got the stop.
With 20:33 on the scoreboard, Hamilton
got control on the right wing inside the
18-yard box and fired her 16-yarder high
and into the net for a 2-0 lead.
The Red and White went up 3-0 at
19:24 when freshman Kiya Wollenhaupt
got control from 16 yards and fired it into
the twine from the right post.
The hosts got their second shot on-goal
at 18:00 when senior Annabel Pinkney
tried from the right wing but OConner
got the save.
At 13:31, Haehn fired a 12-yarder from
the left wing that just went over the top of
the bar.
Castle got a diving stop at 7:06 of an
18-yarder by Knebel.
Haehn nearly curled in a corner kick
from the left side at 4:00 but an Ada defender
deflected the orb out of bounds.
Neither side could score again until the
Wildcats made it 4-0 at 33:47 of the second
half as Hamilton took a nice left to right pass
from junior Bailey Miller and deposited the
8-yarder from the middle to the left side.
The guests made it 5-0 at 27:16 when
junior Kylee Haehn off a feed from
Hamilton lasered a shot from the top of
the box from the middle to the left side when
Pinkney couldnt hold onto the ball.
Castle made several strong saves to keep
the Wildcats off the board and on the other
end, Ada finally broke through at 19:23.
Pinkney made a run from midfield to the top
of the circle and went high side into the net
for a 5-1 edge.
The Bulldogs made it 5-2 at 16:31 when
the Wildcat defenders failed to clear the ball
and Pinkney got possession on the right post
and fired an 18-yarder to the left side.
Ada almost made it a
2-goal match at the 15:20
mark from Pinkney
booted a 25-yard free
kick from the left side
that nearly bounced over
OConner and into the
net but the junior made a
leaping deflected.
OConner made
another big save at
12:00 when Slaton
got behind the defense
and had a 1-on-1 effort but the keeper
deflected the try from 18 yards.
Ada had a goal by Slaton disallowed
at 11:14 due to a foul.
The Red and White seemed to re-establish
control after that and tacked on the final tally
of the evening at 5:50. Haehn set this one up
with a lead pass to Hamilton, who then fin-
ished her hat trick with a 12-yarder from the
right wing to the left side for the final margin.
When Ada scored their goals and had
some good tries, we were stuck in a differ-
ent rotation than we were used to and they
took advantage, Stober added. They had
a flurry but we also didnt lose our compo-
sure, which we easily could have done. We
got it back and scored a late goal. Kayleigh
played very well in goal; this is her first
year of playing that spot and she gets bet-
ter each time out. Shes come a long way
from the start of the season until now and
has a long way to go as far as figuring all
the nuances of the position but we trust her
back there.
Ada had more corner kicks 11
than the visitors (5).
If wed only have played all 80
minutes life we did in that 10 minutes or
so of the second half, things definitely
would have ended up differently, Clum
added. What I took out of that is we
showed what we can do when we work
well together. It just tells me what we
are capable of doing we need to see
more of it on a consistent basis. As we
gain more experience as individuals and

Grove netters power over Lady Green
DHI Correspondent
Bulldogs volleyball team was coming
off a huge win against former Northwest
Conference colleague Lima Central Catholic a
few nights ago.
It appeared that the Bulldogs were still rid-
ing the wave of that victory when they faced
the Ottoville Lady Green on Monday evening.
The Bulldogs used seven aces in the second set and trailed only
twice all night as they swept the Lady Green 25-12, 25-7 and 25-11.
The night started off on a good note for the guests as Alexis
Thorbahn delivered an ace in the first set to give Ottoville a 2-0
lead. However, after trailing 4-1, the Bulldogs went on an 8-1 run
powered by Julia Wynn and Emily Tabler, along with scattered hit-
ting errors on the part of the guests.
Hope Schroeder served up an ace to give the home team an
18-8 advantage but after the teams exchanged unforced errors, the
set ended on an Ottoville serve that went out, giving the Bulldogs
a 1-set-to-none edge.
Set number two was all Columbus Grove. The Lady Green got
the first point again but then the home team took control. With the
score 8-3, Sydney McCluer went on a serving tear, getting five
consecutive aces and another winning serve after an Ottoville hit-
ting error.
Fittingly enough, the second set was brought to a conclusion by
McCluer but this time, not on a serve; it came
on a kill to the Big Green side of the court that
gave Grove a 2-0 edge in sets.
McCluer started off set three where she
left on in the second, gaining the first kill of
the span as the Bulldogs never trailed. Grove
scored the first five points of the set and led by
as much as 13-3 early on.
Becca Indicott came in from the junior varsity squad for the
home team and provided a pair of thundering spikes to the other
side of the court.
With the score 23-10, Wynn tallied the final two points for the
Bulldogs to complete the sweep.
Topping the Lady Green efforts were Annie Lindeman (16
digs), Nikki Burgei (6 blocks), Taylor Mangas (3 kills) and Kara
Schimmoeller (3 kills).
For the Bulldogs were McCluer (14/14 serving, 7 aces),
Wynn (9 kills), Tabler (5 kills), Rachel Schumacher (15 assists),
Briana Glass (10 assists), Sammi Stechschulte (5 kills) and Hope
Schroeder (6 digs).
Grove won the junior varsity match 25-11, 25-21.

That is, until 19:52. Kahle got control of the ball at the top
of the circle on the left post and let one go; it deflected off a
defender and Wehri could not react in time to stop the ball from
finding the right side of the net for a 2-0 lead.
At 18:14, Kalida made it 3-0. Kahle took the ball down the
left side to near the goalline, then crossed it to junior Makenna
Vorst; her 1-touch from eight yards found the right side of the
Wehri sat out the second half due to an injury and freshman
Carleigh Ankerman (8 saves versus 11 shots on-goal) took over
between the pipes.
The Jays couldnt put together any scoring efforts the sec-
ond half, with the visitors taking all the shots.
The Blue and Gold took away good scoring chances with
Ankerman making a pair of early saves until 23:40. Off a
corner kick from the right side, Gardner made a short pass to
sophomore Joni Kaufman, who then crossed it to Kahle on the
right post and her 10-yard header found the back of the net for
a 4-0 edge.
At 21;22, Gardner again launched a corner kick from the
right side but directly found Kahle for her in-close goal and a
5-0 edge.
Ankerman denied junior Lindsey Erhart from 20 yards at
The Maroon and White tacked on the final score at 1:35.
Erhart took a shot from 22 yards that deflected high off a
defender and just off the hands of Ankerman into the back of
the twine.
We had a couple of injuries coming into the match and
we had a couple during the match. We decided to sit Sam at
the half and give her some time to recover fully; Madison got
hurt during the match and we dont know the severity, Munoz
added. Thankfully, we have the rest of the week off to sit
down, watch the film and see what we can do to improve. The
teams we play, when you make a mistake, they end up with
Kalida host Kenton 5 p.m. Thursday.
With how were playing with so many younger girls con-
tributing, its going to make us better in the second half of
this season but especially in the tournament, Kehres added.
These girls are playing with great confidence and as coaches,
were confident that we can put these girls in at any time and
not lose anything. When we get everyone back healthy, our
depth will really be important.

Grove sweeps Lincolnview in volleyball
By Charlie Warnimont
Sentinel Sports Editor
serving team can keep an opponents
defense back on their heels.
Columbus Grove had that lux-
ury Tuesday evening as they
faced Lincolnview in a Northwest
Conference volleyball match. The
Bulldogs were able to run off strings
of points behind some excellent serv-
ing as they defeated the Lancers in
three sets, 25-10, 25-13, 25-6.
The win keeps the Bulldogs unde-
feated in the NWC at 3-0 and they
are 9-2 overall.
Serving was key for Columbus
Grove especially in the first and
third sets as they ran off double-
digit strings of points to close out
the games.
Our serving was really good
tonight. It gave us a lot of points,
Grove coach Susan Jones said. Kelli
Vorst was 18-of-18 serving and Hope
Schroeder was 9-of-9 serving. The
girls are coming together the deeper
we get into the season. That win over
Lima Central Catholic was big for us
in picking up some momentum.
Columbus Grove had a 7-6 lead in
the opening game after a kill by the
Lancers Katie McClure. A kill by
the Bulldogs Sammi Stechschulte
returned the serve to Grove and
Deanna Kleman served up six
straight points to give the Bulldogs
a 14-6 lead. Kleman had an ace dur-
ing her run, while Emily Tabler had
three kills.
Lincolnview stopped the run
and came within 14-10 on three
straight points by Baylee Neate. A
Stechschulte kill ended the Lancers
short run as Megan Verhoff stepped
to the service line. Verhoff served
out the first game with 10 straight
points as she had four aces, while
Stechschulte and Kristen Wynn both
had a kill and Sydney McCluer had
two kills as the Bulldogs
took the first game 25-10.
The second set was close
early as the Bulldogs were
leading 9-7 before Hope
Schroeder stepped to the
service line to give Grove
a 13-7 lead. The Lancers
fought back and were trail-
ing 15-11 before the Bulldogs serv-
ing took over again. After two ser-
vice points by Kelli Vorst helped
push the lead out to 18-12 before the
teams traded sideouts. McCluer put
Grove on the verge of winning game
two with four straight points for a
23-12 lead. After the teams traded
sideouts, the Bulldogs went up 2-0
in games as a Lancer attack sailed
The third set saw the Bulldogs
score the first two points
before a rare service error
gave Lincolnview the serve.
A service error by the
Lancers gave the Bulldogs a
sideout and Vorst took over
the game as she account-
ed for 13 straight points as
McCluer had three kills and Kristin
Wynn two kills for 16-1 lead before
the Lancers forced a sideout on a kill
by Ashley McClure. The deficit was
too much for Lincolnview to over-
come though..
Vorst was 18-of-18 serving with
two aces, while Schroeder was 9-of-
9 serving with four aces. Overall the
Bulldogs had 13 service aces in the
When you can serve like that it
throws off their offense. They were
unable to get set up like they wanted
to, Jones added.
They served very aggressive and
took us out of our element,
Lincolnview coach Heather
Crow said. We had a very
hard time adjusting. I think
we were intimidated by their
serve. They served very,
very well.. Weve had a hard
time getting out of serve
receive rotations all year.
Another key to the Bulldogs win
was their play at the net. Columbus
Grove has been working on their
blocking game and while it took
some time for them to adjust to the
Lancers attack, they were able to
do that the third game getting their
hands on several Lancer attacks.
We have been working on block-
ing. Our blocking wasnt as good as
I wanted at the beginning but it got
better throughout the match, Jones
said. Kristin Wynn had a
very nice game with some
big hits. Sydney McCluer
had a nice game as did
Sammi Stechschulte.
McCluer finished with
six kills and Stechschulte
had five kills. Emily
Tabler and Kleman both had two
solo blocks for the Bulldogs. Rachel
Schumacher had eight assists and
Briana Glass had seven assists.
Columbus Grove won the junior
varsity match 25-22, 25-14.
Lincolnview hosts Crestview and
Grove visits Paulding, both at 6 p.m.

in a Northwest Conference vol-

I was really proud of how
our girls fought back after losing
the first two sets, Lady Bearcat
coach Joshua Early noted. We
played good fundamental volley-
ball in the second and third sets.
I give Allen East a lot of credit.
They blocked really well tonight
and we did not cover our hitters
well enough, especially in the
fifth set.
The Bearcats were led by
Katie Merriman with nine kills
and seven digs. Schylar Miller led
with 24 assists.

led by four kills, nine digs and a
handful of blocks by freshman
Jessica Geise, three kills and a
handful of blocks by junior Bekah
Fischer, eight digs from senior
Kaylie Youngpeter and six digs
from freshman Maya Gerker.
We have a lot of letterwin-
ners back from last year, so expe-
rience in invaluable. I think this
is a very balanced team, Lady
Flyer coach Amy Steininger
observed. We have a lot of
all-around players and athletes.
Were balanced in our attack but
were also balanced in that were
good on offense and equally
good on defense. Last year, we
were better on offense.
Leading the way for the vic-
tors were Clara Wuebker (6 kills,
6 aces), Allie Wendel (8 assists),
Megan Wendel (10 digs), Kenzie
Albers (5 kills) and Hannah
Heitbrink (5 kills).
We tried to keep the ball in
play and ended up playing a lot
of defense. They dont let you do
a lot; they force you into having
to play your best, Dammeyer
added. Marion is the type of pro-
gram you want to be like. Thats
what Im trying to do; build this
program to that level. We have a
lot of young players that are being
stretched by a very difficult sched-
ule but this will only make them
stronger players in the end.

Notes: The Bengals released running back Bernard

by drafting Bernard in the second round, but had to wait

Bruce Williams
DEAR BRUCE: I went to
the bank concerned that my
account was over the amount
to be fully insured. They
suggested that to protect it I
should put the names of my
children on the account, which
would have each of us cov-
ered. I am wondering if that
gives my children complete
control over my account. --
Reader, via email
that you are talking about
the FDIC limit of a quarter-
million dollars per account.
There are a number of ways
that the insured amount can
be increased without putting
anyone else on the account.
I dont see any reason for
putting your childrens names
on your account. It does give
them some control, and I
understand that you are rightly
uncomfortable with that.
You can go to the bank and
tell the staff you want to open
a separate account. Ask how
it can be titled to allow you
to have another $250,000 of
Alternatively, you can
always open an account in
another institution.
have any recommendations
for someone who has credit-
card debt? I have always made
just the minimum payments,
but I am now having a lot of
trouble managing even that. I
am making late payments on
some of them and dont know
what to do. Are there any debt-
settlement companies that are
trustworthy, and is this some-
thing I should look into? --
S.P., via email
DEAR S.P.: Because
you have been making only
minimum payments, you are
already in trouble. There are
many companies out there that
can help you. You may wish
to consult one of them, but if
you are asked for money up
front, run!
The major problem here
is getting your affairs in order
so you can meet the minimum
payments. But it will take you
many, many years of making
minimum payments to retire
the obligations.
You can consult with your
credit-card companies and
explain the situation; ask if
there is a possibility of reduc-
ing your monthly payments.
Lenders generally prefer to
have a steady stream of min-
imum payments rather than
none at all.
If you choose to consult
with the credit consulting
companies, be 100 percent
aware of what they offer and
what their charges will be.
DEAR BRUCE: My credit
is very good, but my fiancee
has bad credit. After we marry,
how will that affect my credit
She has a high-interest
mortgage and we want to refi-
nance. I know banks are very
particular about mortgage
lending and wondered if we
would qualify for a loan. My
other thought is to purchase
her home in my name before
we get married, in case we
have trouble getting a loan.
-- J.W., via email
DEAR J.W.: I think that
your idea of purchasing her
home in your name has a
great deal of validity, assum-
ing she is comfortable with
that because its going to be
in your name alone, and its
going to belong to you. The
idea of refinancing in this
fashion because of your good
credit can get you a lower
interest rate, which makes a
great deal of sense.
You didnt indicate the
size of the mortgage. If its
very small, its not necessar-
ily worth pursuing, but with
a decent size mortgage, it is
very worthwhile.
In any case, you should
consider using a prenuptial
agreement to protect your wife
in case you predecease her.
DEAR BRUCE: In 1991,
I was living in Waunakee,
Wis., newly employed as a
recent college graduate. One
evening, a caller on your radio
show, whose life sounded
quite similar to mine at that
point, asked for your rec-
ommendation regarding his
desire to purchase a home.
You suggested he search in
older parts of town where one
might find a home with a
grandfathered second-floor
rental unit to offset part of the
mortgage cost.
I took this advice and
found an older home in
Madison with a second-floor
lock-out that covered over 50
percent of the $625 mortgage.
That decision to find a rela-
tively low-cost older home
with an attached rental was
a tremendously positive step
that has led to my owning, 20
years later, eight rental homes
in the Dallas area, six free and
clear. Within two more years I
expect to have the remaining
two homes paid off, and my
wife and I will have nearly
$100,000 a year net income
from these properties -- almost
certainly a result of hearing
your advice.
So, many thanks for your
sound counsel and know that
at least one person was greatly
helped by your words. -- R.R.,

Midwest Spray Drying now
Wannemacher Packaging
Upper Sandusky Plant
Information submitted
LIMA Midwest Spray Drying
announces the company has become a part
of Wannemacher Packaging Division of
Wannemacher Total Logistics and will now
be known as the Upper Sandusky Plant of
Wannemacher Packaging.
The move is a part of Wannemachers con-
solidation of its two recently-acquired food
processing and packaging facilities into its
existing packaging operations.
This move is a logical step forward as
the Wannemacher Packaging Division grows
its presence in our company, said Greg
Wannemacher, president of Wannemacher
Total Logistics. A little more than a year and
a half ago, we purchased the Golden Heritage
liquid filling plant in Van Wert and late last
year, we acquired the Midwest Spray Drying
plant in Upper Sandusky. For years, our com-
pany has offered our logistics customers a
wide variety of packaging services, so we felt
now is the right time for our latest acquisi-
tions to be brought under the Wannemacher
Spray drying is a method of producing a
dry powder from a liquid or slurry by rapidly
drying with a hot gas. The liquid is sprayed
into a large, food-grade drying tower that
dries the atomized liquid, resulting in a fine
powder. The resulting powders are used in a
wide variety of products including spices, fla-
vorings, teas and even pharmaceutical ingre-
As a part of the Wannemacher organiza-
tion, the Spray Drying plant will be working
toward gaining SQF Level Certification III,
the gold standard of the food industry.
The move also makes available to its
Spray Drying clients the other services of

concept, such as a wide selection of ware-
housing and inventory control options and
improved transportation services offerings.
Andy Wannemacher, Vice President of
Wannemacher Total Logistics, said, There
are few independent spray drying facilities
in the country that offer co-pack contract ser-
vices. Bringing Midwest Spray Drying under
the Wannemacher banner and its expanded
services puts the plant in an even stronger

Information submitted
LIMA Following a
due diligence process and
regulatory approval from
federal regulators, Lima,

bers voted on Aug. 13
in favor of merging into

The merger, which

become official on Oct.
1. TopMark will provide
former Lima, Ohio, Postal
members with additional
products and services,
including more than 5,000
shared branching loca-
tions, 32,000 ATMs, real
estate loans and more.
Angie Maynard will
remain CEO of the newly-
combined organization.
Lima OH Postal CEO
Connie Arthur will retire
after more than 19 years of
dedicated service.
We are certainly hon-
ored Lima OH Postal
EFU chose to merge with
TopMark. Lima OH Postal
members have been part of
a successful credit union
and we are pleased to have
them part of the TopMark
family. We look forward to
working with their mem-
bers throughout the entire
process, Maynard said.
According to Maynard,
mergers like these are
becoming more common
among credit unions as the
financial industry becomes
more competitive and
strives to keep up with ris-
ing costs and increased reg-
ulations and compliance.
Credit unions are non-
profit cooperatives with no
stockholders, so when a
merger takes place, there
is no money exchanging or
stock buyouts.

Business leaders: It makes sense to put jobs in US
HELENA, Mont. (AP) Business
leaders from Oracle Corp., Ford Motor
Co. and The Boeing Co. said Tuesday
their companies have found that it makes
sense to bring jobs back to the United
States even to smaller cities in places
such as Montana.
Oracle President Safra Catz, speak-
ing to a gathering of several thousand
business leaders and others at a jobs
summit in Butte, said her company has
been centering its cloud computing divi-
sion in the nearby mountain town of
The company has found that cheaper
labor isnt always worth it and has
brought some jobs back from Mexico to
the U.S., she said.
It is really, really simple: Employees
are our company, Catz said. Everything
of value that we are is coming from, and
in, the heads of our people.
Oracle purchased a Bozeman software
firm in 2011. Catz said Oracle has been
impressed with the result, plans to contin-
ue expanding, and expects it will attract
more technology companies to the area.
What is wonderful about Montana
is that I know I have great people, and
I dont have to worry about civil war
breaking out, Catz said. I know that
sounds funny, but I have civil war in
some of my countries.
Boeing CEO Jim McNerney told the
crowd that locating workers outside the
country is no longer as compelling as the
cost of business increases overseas.
Boeing has had mixed results on
outsourcing jobs overseas. Some critics
have blamed production delays on the
companys decision to offshore critical
McNerney predicted that improved
business efficiency and innovation, fast-
paced energy development that could
make the country the worlds largest oil
producer, and other factors are going
to lead to a renaissance of American
manufacturing. He said an effect of the
recession is companies produce more
with less.
The long-term upside for workers is
that American companies are about as
well positioned as they have in decades
to compete and win on a global scale,
McNerney said.
He pointed out that wages overseas
have been increasing.
The CEO announced a $35 million
expansion for Boeings Helena, Mont.,
plant that will add as many as 25 jobs at
a facility that specializes in making criti-
cal airplane parts. He thanked U.S. Sen.
Max Baucus, who introduced Boeing
leaders to the local plant that the larger
company purchased in 2010, for helping
make the latest expansion possible.
Baucus organized the Butte jobs con-
Alan Mulally, CEO of Ford, said its
company invested heavily during the
recession in revamping and modernizing
a more fuel efficient car line. Part of
that effort has been focused on returning
manufacturing to the United States. He
said the company is moving the produc-
tion of the Fusion line from Mexico to
the United States.
He said smart public-private part-
nerships are needed to further improve
American competitiveness, and he laud-
ed the summit as an important conver-

Wage bill affecting
Wal-Mart dies in DC
WASHINGTON (AP) An effort to require Wal-Mart and
other large retailers to pay their employees a living wage
of at least $12.50 an hour met its end Tuesday when the D.C.
Council failed to override Mayor Vincent Grays veto.
The bill put Washington at the center of a national debate
over compensation for low-wage workers and whether
some large companies should be required to pay more.
Supporters said Wal-Mart can afford to pay higher wages,
while opponents said the bill unfairly singled out certain
businesses and would have a chilling effect on economic
The council voted 7-6 to override the veto, falling two
votes short of the required two-thirds majority. The bill was
approved in July by an 8-5 vote. Councilmember Anita Bonds,
who earlier voted for the bill, voted against the override.
Gray, a Democrat, called the bill a job killer, saying it
would drive Wal-Mart and other retailers including Home
Depot, Target and Wegmans out of the city. Wal-Mart had
threatened to abandon plans for three of the six stores it had
planned for the nations capital if the bill became law.
After the council failed to override the veto, supporters
of the bill protested loudly inside and outside the council
chamber, shouting We wont forget! The protest briefly
interrupted the council meeting. Supporters included unions,
some clergy and other advocates for the poor.

Healthy lifestyle is cornerstone for treating hypertension
K: My blood pressure
medication has side effects
that are difficult to tolerate.
What else can I do to lower
my BP?
youre a regular reader
of this column, youve
heard me say more than
once that diet and exercise
sometimes can eliminate
the need for medications
for a variety of conditions.
Thats true -- and it surely
is true for high blood
However, sometimes
diet, exercise and stress
management lower blood
pressure only part of the
way. Medications may
still be necessary. Every
medicine ever invented
can cause side effects
in some people. But the
other side of that coin is
that medicines often do
not cause side effects. And
just because one medicine
causes side effects does
not mean that another
Fortunately, there
are many different
medicines to treat high
blood pressure. In my
experience, you can
usually find a blood
pressure medication that
is both effective and free
of side effects. But even
when thats true, its still
important to get back to
basics: a healthy lifestyle.
A healthy lifestyle is the
cornerstone for preventing
and treating hypertension.
It may allow you to lower
your medication dose or
stop taking medication
altogether. At the very
least, youll feel better:
-- First and foremost,
if you smoke, quit. Your
blood pressure will start to
decrease within hours after
your last cigarette. Your
doctor can recommend
resources to help you quit.
-- Another important
step is to reach and
maintain a healthy body
weight. Being overweight
or obese itself raises your
blood pressure.
-- Even if you dont
need to lose weight,
eating the right foods can
make a difference. The
key features of a blood-
pressure-friendly diet
include plenty of fruits,
vegetables and whole
grains; several servings
daily of low-fat dairy
products; some fish,
poultry, dried beans, nuts
and seeds; and minimal red
meat, sweets and sugar-
laden beverages. Also try
to limit your sodium intake
to less than 1.5 grams of
sodium per day. You can
find the sodium content
of prepared foods on the
Nutrition Facts label.
-- Limiting alcohol can
help. Have no more than
two drinks per day if youre
male, or one drink per day
if youre female. Thats
drinking in moderation.
Drinking in moderation
may even help lower blood
pressure, while drinking
more can definitely raise
blood pressure.
-- Regular exercise
lowers high blood
pressure. Aim for at least
30 minutes of moderate-
intensity exercise on all
or most days of the week.
Examples include walking
or riding a stationary bike.
Regular exercise is a potent
tonic for lowering your
blood pressure -- even if
you dont lose weight.
-- Finally, relax.
Ongoing stress raises your
blood pressure. Learn
relaxation techniques, such
as meditation, progressive
muscle relaxation, deep
breathing or yoga. I have
a patient who took up tai
chi several years ago and
does it daily. I cant prove
theres a connection, but I
can tell you that her blood
pressure has never been so
low, and she says she feels

Gene Autry and Alan Autry:
similar names, standout careers
Q: Is actor Alan Autry
related to Western cowboy
singer/actor Gene Autry? --
J.S., East Peoria, Ill.
A: I have
read several
biographies of
both Gene Autry
and Alan Autry.
According to
at least one
biographer, a
connection is
made if you go
back several
generations in
the family tree.
Ac c o r d i n g
to his official
website, Gene Autrys
career spanned some
70 years. He is the only
entertainer to have five
stars on the Hollywood
Walk of Fame -- one for
each category (radio,
recording, motion pictures,
television and live
theater). He appeared in
93 movies and starred in
91 television productions.
He was no slouch when it
came to music,
either: Autry
recorded and
wrote hundreds
of songs. He
was also an
i n c r e d i b l e
b u s i n e s s ma n
-- he owned a
major league
baseball team,
TV stations and
several radio
stations. Gene
Autry went to
the big ranch in the sky in
1998; he was 91.
Alan Autry is best
known for his portrayal
of police officer Bubba
Skinner on the series In
the Heat of the Night.
He was born Carlos Alan
Autry in Shreveport, La.,
in 1952. After his parents
divorced when he was a
year old, his name was
changed to Carlos Brown.
In 1975 he was drafted by
the Green Bay Packers,
where he was a second-
string quarterback --
though he did start several
games. After his football
career ended, he took up
acting using the name Alan
Autry. He was mayor of
Fresno, Calif., from 2001
to 2009.

By Bernice Bede Osol
Mom should make nice
with new daughter-in-law
Dear Annie: My son re-
cently married a young wom-
an from an affuent family.
When he was frst engaged,
we began to see less of him.
We invited him and his f-
ancee to dinners, vacations,
etc., but were usually turned
down. They do, however,
spend a great deal of time
with her family, so we have
just backed off.
My husband and I contrib-
uted almost half of
the money for the
wedding. We of-
fered to help with
whatever we could,
but were told that
our help was not
needed. Her family
did all of the plan-
ning. She and her
mother conjured
up lies to throw us
off from planning
our guest list, what
we should wear to
the wedding, etc.
We hosted a beautiful
rehearsal dinner, with no
thank you or even a smile
from the bride. On the day of
the wedding, our daughter-
in-law was embarrassingly
rude to my husband and me.
It wasnt until the next day,
when she refused to attend a
family function before going
on their honeymoon, that I
found out she was angry with
me because of what I wore.
Annie, I wore the dress my
son told me to wear, but he
will not admit that to his
We have not heard from
either of them since that
day. I am so incredibly hurt.
I treated this girl like part of
the family. I cant believe she
would ruin a relationship over
something so trivial. Any ad-
vice? Mom from Montana
Dear Mom: The dress is
just an excuse to limit con-
tact. It sounds as if your new
daughter-in-law doesnt want
a relationship with her hus-
bands family, and he permits
it either because he agrees
or, more likely, because he
doesnt want to upset the ap-
You need to make nice,
even though it will be diff-
cult. Call or email your son
and his wife, apologize for
unintentionally selecting the
wrong dress, mention some-
thing nice about the wedding
and about the bride, and sign
off by saying you hope to see
them soon. We hope your son
values his family enough to
put his spine back into place.
Dear Annie: I have, for
quite some time now, been
concerned about a possible
water shortage in the U.S. and
around the world. I recently
stayed with a friend and was
amazed at how much water
she wasted. She would keep
the kitchen faucet
turned on full blast
for several min-
utes while working
in another area. I
didnt say anything,
as it was her home,
but it sure hit me
that we waste this
precious resource.
I am not perfect
with my water us-
age, but I hardly
would have let my
water run when I
didnt need it. Specialists on
water shortage have writ-
ten articles on how soon our
water supply could run out.
Also, why dont all sinks
have an instant hot so we
dont have to run the faucet
until the water warms up?
I am hoping you will print
this and it will save water in
some households. Con-
cerned Water Conservator
Dear Concerned: We
dont always appreciate that
we have fnite resources on
this planet, including water.
Please, folks, dont run the
faucet if you dont need the
water. Use cold when you
can. Set a timer for your
showers. Lets not take our
blessings for granted.
Dear Annie: This is for
Retired Architect in Day-
ton, Ohio, who asked why
we build houses that can burn
I suppose if we mountain
dwellers were able to build
our ideal homes, we would
make certain they were as
freproof as possible. How-
ever, there is no such thing
as a freproof construction.
We are survivors of the Silver
Fire. Many of our neighbors
and friends lost their homes.
We saw quite a bit of melted
steel. Even concrete burns.
The most important thing that
every mountain dweller can
do is keep a defensible space.

Annies Mailbox
Recognize what you have to
work with and do your best in the
coming months. Learning from past
mistakes shouldnt make you angry or
vengeful, but should instead teach you
a lesson. Your tumultuous experience
will be an asset.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) --
Helping someone financially will not
turn out as planned. Dont expect to
get anything in return for your gesture.
It would be better to offer forms of aid
other than cash.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Use
your skills wisely today. You may
be asked or expected to offer your
services for free, but this wont pay
the bills. Search for a remunerative
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- Exploring new friendships or
hobbies will increase your own self-
awareness. Share what you know, and
you will enrich someones life as well
as your own.
Dec. 21) -- Do whatever it takes
to add to your comfort at home or
to bolster important relationships.
Communicate freely and encourage
positive change. A financial boost
could be in the works.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- If youre faced with an array of
options, choose the one that promises
the most. Dont fear taking an unusual
path. Express your views openly and
back your feelings with facts, figures
and conviction.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- It would be wise to make changes
in the way you handle your cash. Its
important to save for a rainy day or to
budget so you can afford things you
want without feeling financial stress.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
-- The lure of the unfamiliar may
be enticing, but in the end you will
discover that success will come from
sticking to what has worked well for
you in the past.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- Keep a lid on your emotions. You
dont want to give anyone the upper
hand by revealing your true feelings.
Listen, ask questions and figure out
your best move with a cool head.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
-- Dont take opposition personally.
Accept criticism, but dont change
your ideas unnecessarily. If you avoid
conflict, youll have an easier row to
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) --
What you offer others will in turn
help you. Get involved in community
affairs that can make a difference to
your personal or professional life.
Fight for your rights.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) --
Look for opportunities and recognize
good fortune when it comes your way.
Refuse to let the actions of others slow
you down or stand between you and
your goals. Negativity is your enemy.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Deal
with responsibilities and demands
quickly. You want to leave enough
time to enjoy doing something fun or
spending time with people you care

Did you know that in
1888, the first world beauty
contest was held in Belgium,
an 18-year-old West Indian
woman won.

The college is accredited by the ABET
(formerly known as Accreditation Board
for Engineering and Technology) and
ranked 33rd among engineering schools
whose highest degree is a bachelors
or masters. ONU also was recognized
among Midwest regional colleges in
the A-Plus Schools for B Students
The No. 2 ranking is a tribute to
the hard work and accomplishments of
our extremely dedicated, highly com-
mitted faculty and staff, said Daniel
A. DiBiasio, ONU president. The U.S.
News publication, together with the
University being highly rated by other
publications like Washington Monthly
and The Princeton Review, can affirm
the quality and distinctive mix of oppor-
tunities offered at ONU.
The Best Colleges 2014 guidebook
ranks 367 colleges within four regions:
North, South, Midwest and West. The
Midwest region is comprised of Illinois,
Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan,
Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North
Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and
U.S. News & World Report offers
its publication as a way for students to
broaden their college search and make
comparisons before visiting and inter-
viewing at appropriate universities. For
reporting purposes, the schools are cat-
egorized by mission and, in some cases,
region. Data is gathered from each col-
lege on up to 15 indicators of academic
excellence. Those indicators fall into the
following categories: peer assessment,
retention of students, faculty resources,
student selectivity, financial resources,
graduate rate performance and alumni
giving. The indicators are designed to
reflect the schools student body, its
faculty and financial resources and to
measure how well the institution edu-
cates its students.

(Continued from page 1)
Under the plan, one employee could
be off shift at a time, saving the creation
of an extra 24 hours of overtime; trading
shift days will be encouraged when pos-
sible, saving the cost of overtime.
The fire chief has also agreed to use
some of his accumulated vacation time
to lower his buyout upon his retirement
with the savings to be determined by the
number of days used; for example: 10
days would save approximately $2,400.
Line-item reductions from the 2013
budget include: Travel Account
$1,000; Training Account $1,540;
Turn-out Account $2,500; Professional
Services Account $3,000; Repair and
Maintenance Account $2,500; Small
Tools Account $2,000; and Building
& Structure $6,000; for a total savings
of $18,540.
The final proposal is to schedule two
EMS personnel per shift, with the under-
standing more help may be needed on
certain types of calls, such as trauma,
cardiac arrest and respiratory arrest.
Using 75 runs per month as an average
multiplied by $25 equated to a potential
savings of $1,900 per month and approxi-
mately $5,600 through years end.
Myer said the proposal was not against
the contract with the firefighters union
because it involved the collective bar-
gaining unit.
Former Fire Chief Wayne Suever
returned to the podium to re-iterate his
concern over the city not renewing fire
and rescue contracts with Marion and
Washington townships, citing total pos-
sible losses for the city of $123,961.
The Marion Township contract is
$55,588.81 and there were an additional
66 transports in 2012 for $33,921.36 in
billable services.
The Washington Township contract is
$32,291.03 with an additional 43 trans-
ports last year, which generated $22,650.
Resident Mary Lou Wittler spoke on
the Delphos Municipal Swimming Pool.
Dont close the pool to save on the
budget, she began. Our students, chil-
dren and adults need to be able to swim,
play in the water, lose their fear of water,
respect water and, most of all, to save
themselves in water.
Children and students learn to obey
rules, respect others, obey lifeguards and
respect the water. This is a carryover
from family and school.
Families swim and have fun together.
How great is that? The library uses the pool
for a reward for reading. The handicapped
benefit and have a meet at our pool.
What great exercise to swim, walk
or move in the water. It makes your body
feel good. Its fun and affordable.
In closing, Wittler stressed the pool is
not just for Delphos.
Our Delphos pool is an asset to our
town. People come to our town from
other towns to the pool, to shop, to go the
grocery and eat at our restaurants, she
said. Other towns share conversation,
have fun and have a good rapport with
Delphos people.
Wittler also inquired about the
Dienstberger Foundation and its gener-
ous donations in the past.
They understand the value of our
pool to all ages, she added. We need
to make sure we keep applying for those
Councilman Mark Clement spoke on
the pool.
We need to reach out the Delphos
residents and ask them to help us with
the pool, he said. We cant keep losing
$25,000 a year.
Councilman Kevin Osting agreed.
We do need citizens help, he said
One way they can help is to pass the
quarter-percent income tax increase.
Council passed on emergency mea-
sure an ordinance authorizing Auditor
Tom Jettinghoff to enter into a contract
with Medical Mutual of Ohio for the
citys health insurance needs for next
This is a way to eliminate one of the
unknowns for next year, Safety Service
Director Greg Berquist said. Weve
heard interest rates could go up as much
as 4o percent. This contract represents a
modest 9.43-percent increase.
The contact states that based on cur-
rent information, the renewal cost for
health insurance will be approximately
$580,000. The cost of the health insur-
ance benefit Health Reimbursement
Account with Medical Mutual is esti-
mated at $472,180. The cost to adminis-
ter the dental/vision/hearing aid benefit
is estimated at $1,080 and the amount
appropriated to pay the claims is $30,282.
The cost for Life AD&D benefit is an
annual amount of $1,368.
Council amended an ordinance on first
reading concerning increasing transporta-
tion rates. The ordinance originally read
that the rate structure would be revisited
each year on March 1 for adjustments
equal to the previous calendar years
increase change in the Consumer Price
Index. It was amended to read rate adjust-
ments would be revisited on June 1 of each
year with changes made equal to changes
in the Milliman Medical Index, which
tracks the cost of healthcare coverage.
The new rates, effective Oct. 1, for
rescue service emergency transportation
to a medical hospital not farther in dis-
tance than 20 miles will be:
Emergency Basic Life Support (per
person/per conveyance) $450;
Emergency Advanced Life Support
1 (per person/per conveyance) $700;
Emergency Advanced Life Support
2 (per person/per conveyance) $850;
Mileage (per loaded mile) $13.75.
An ordinance reducing the salaries
of elective officials by 25 percent all
paid monthly was heard on first read-
ing. The mayor will make $13,500 per
year; the city treasurer will make $2,400
a year; the city law director will make
$7,500 per year; the president of council
will make $2,400 a year; individual coun-
cil members will make $2,250 a year; and
the city auditor will make $7,500 a year.
If passed, the ordinance will not take
affect for any office until the person
now holding the position is re-elected or
Council suspended the rules on an
ordinance to transfer $41,000 to the
Police Pension Fund and $34,000 to the
Fire Pension and passed it on second
reading to bring the funds to a positive
Council passed on third reading a
resolution accepting the amount and rates
as determined by the budget commission
and authorizing the necessary tax levies
and certifying them to the county auditor.
In other business, council reviewed an
ordinance proposed by Councilman Josh
Gillespie to cut the pay salary for the
safety service director by 20 percent and
department supervisors by 15 percent.
Councilman Osting said the amounts
were excessive, employees would look
for other jobs and the city would have a
hard time replacing them at those rates.
Three of the five German cultural
exchange student staying with host fami-
lies in Delphos were introduced to coun-
cil. They included Marie Horstman, host-
ed by Julie and Roger Orroyo; Charlotte
Klotz, hosted by Kellie and Derek
Sterling; and Jacob Thomas, hosted by
Judy and Gary Mack.
Exchange Student Program Director
Rick Hanser presented the students with
Reflections books about Delphos. They
each got up and spoke to council, thanking
everyone for having them and saying they
were having a great time and learning a
lot about Delphos and America in general.
Students Merle Kampwirth and
Madeleine Muller were unable to attend.
They are being hosted by Ginger and
Gene Denman and Amy and Dennis
Youngpeter, respectively.

The search process is divided into five phases and primary
responsibilities of the board of education are clearly delineated
from those of the outside consultant.
Phase I: Leadership Profile Development; Phase II:
Candidate Recruitment; Phase III: Candidate Screening;
Phase IV: Board Evaluation of Candidates; and Phase V:
Board member Pat Schymanski asked if the program would
be tailored to the school.
Yes. We will sort out the parameters needed for this pro-
gram, Ryan said.
Board member Brenda Stocker wanted to know if the com-
munity could be engaged if the board chose to do so.
We are able to put programs in place, such as surveys,
focus groups, etc, Ryan answered.
Sally Ulrich asked, Since it is election time, how do you
work with the board in this selection process? I would suggest
that you would encourage those pre-election board member
candidates come to the focus forum.
Due to the fact Superintendent Diglia will retire in June,
board member Brian Anders asked if Ryan thought the process
would be completed by Dec. 31.
I would certainly think it is quite possible to hire a super-
intendent by Dec. 31, she concluded.
Diglia wanted to address some underlying questions, such
as levy fatigue.
Elida has been on the ballot every year since 2004. We
have been on the ballot eight times in the last 10 years. Three
of the eight were bond issue attempts for the new high school,
Diglia said. For operating expenses, we have been on the bal-
lot five times in the last 10 years.
The last time the voters approved new money was May
2005. That measure was renewed by voters in 2010. It will
need to be renewed again in 2015.
My recommendation to the board is to go for the 10-year
levy to relieve the 5-year levy fatigue, Diglia said.
The statistics on the operating levy attempts by the district:
2004 saw a loss by only 200 votes
2005 saw a big win by 990 votes
2010 renewal passed by 540 votes
2013 loss by 253 votes; PI renewal won by 843 votes
In business, the board:
Proclaimed the week of Oct. 14-18 as National School
Lunch Week and encourages all residents to become aware
and concerned about their childrens and their own nutrition
habits in hope of achieving a more healthful citizenry for
today and the future;
Accepted the resignation of Merle Hentze, bus driver for
retirement purposes, effective Nov. 1; and
Approved the following personnel for employment pend-
ing criminal investigation checks: Mary Lu Anthony, choir
accompanist; Karee Hodge, substitute aide & substitute secre-
tary; Jordan Coulter, substitute custodian; Cash Johnson, sub-
stitute custodian; Adam Mistic, substitute custodian; Nathan
Sanford, substitute custodian; and Ella Johnson, substitute

Its not preferred but an
option, Chapman explained.
Didnt one owner sign the
consent but needed it nota-
rized? Mayor J.P. Johnson
asked Chapman.
Attorney Alan Smith vol-
unteered to notarize the con-
I will call the owner of the
property and get that done,
Chapman said.
As for the water treatment
plant, Johnson and Chapman
outlined all the steps taken
by the village and the Ohio
EPA is supportive of the plan,
which is to work with Richard
Kirk of Kirk Bros. and move
forward. In June, sub-con-
tractor H2O Innovations ter-
minated their contract with
Kirk Bros. for the water tanks.
Since that time, Kirk Bros, CT
Consultants and the village
have been working together
for a remedy to get the water
treatment plant built.
Kirk Brothers has
responded to Farmers Mutual
on the plan of how it [water
treatment facility] is going to
get done, Smith said.
Chapman addressed a
recent water main break where
66,000 gallons of water cost-
ing over $900 was billed to a
resident. He asked council to
consider an adjustment to the
referenced account down to
$75 for water. He said the resi-
dent usually only pays $60.
Council member John
Miller asked what the pro-
cedure was the last time the
village dealt with a similar
The leak was 61,000
gallons and I asked for the
same adjustment, Chapman
replied. If we could just look
at it subjectively.
Council President Nancy
Taylor moved to allow the
adjustment and council mem-
ber Michael Bice seconded
the motion.
Chapman announced that
members from Activate Allen
County will be in Spencerville
Council Chambers from 10
a.m. to noon on Oct. 10 to
discuss the framework for
the Allen County Bicycle/
Pedestrian Task Force. Ideally,
the program would benefit
local economies by boosting
the real estate market, support-
ing local economic develop-
ment and creating more con-
sumer spending.
It would also help youth
stay active by presenting com-
munities that allow youth
to safely walk or bicycle to
school and in their neighbor-
hoods. There are many other
benefits for all communities.
They want to come into
each community and lay out
a framework, get input and
identify leaders of the com-
munity that will be engaged
with the project, Chapman
explained. They would like
10-15 people to attend the
meeting and walk the commu-
nity for placement of walking
and biking trails.
Johnson announced that he
has designated himself as the
treasurer for the Income Tax
Nancy and Darin, if you
are still willing, we need lit-
erature and signs but we have
to fund them, Johnson said.
We will take donations.
In new business, Johnson
mentioned the free electron-
ic waste collection at NCO
(North Central Ohio) which
will be held from 9 a.m. to 1
p.m. on Oct. 5 at 815 Shawnee
Road in Lima.
Johnson also said that he
would be attending Mayors
Court training on Oct. 11 to
keep his certification current.
In addition, he would be out
of town for medical business
during the next village council
At the Sept. 3 council
meeting, Resolution #13-28,
Accepting the Amounts and
Rates as Determined by the
Budget Commission and
Authorizing the Necessary
Tax Levies and Certifying
them to the County Auditor,
Bice moved to place #13-28
on its first reading and Taylor
seconded the motion. Roll was
called; motion passed unani-
mously. Resolution #13-28,
which is a time-sensitive mat-
ter, was passed unanimously
on its second reading.
Village Clerk/Treasurer
Dawn Bailey gave an update
on the audit, which has been
ongoing since March.
They have completed an
audit draft, which all of you
will receive, Bailey detailed.
It still needs approval and had
procedural items changed.
In the Police Report, Chief
Darin Cook said that during
the Fall Festival, officers fin-
gerprinted over 60 children
and had positive comments
from parents.
We had no problems with
the beer tent, Cook said.
One big class reunion moved
over to Delphos after the tent
closed around 11 p.m.
He added that all the cruis-
ers are running well. The
departments new computer
has been up and running since
last Friday.
Cook said there has been a
rash of burglaries on the north-
west side and not in the village
itself. Spencerville officers
have been working with Van
Wert and Allen County law
In the Finance Committee
Report, Johnson reiterated the
changes in health insurance
Taylor and the balance of
the Utilities Committee set up
a meeting to discuss the new
E-Pay software which will
allow residents to pay online
to be held at 6 p.m. on Sept. 24.
In the Safety/Streets
Report, Miller reported that
the Emergency Disaster Plan
is not ready for approval and
that he and Chapman need to
finish the plan. Another issue
that has been brought to his
attention is the use of golf
carts on roadways. In addition,
Johnson added discussion has
come up with regards to non-
posted speed limits within the
villages corporation limits.
Council moved to end its
regular session and enter into
executive session to discuss
possible litigation.

I would like to get quotes
on John Deere 4320, 4520
and the 4720, Smith said.
The biggest difference is the
horsepower, which steps up
with each model.
Council member Walt
Pitney said that they should
look at the boom lifting
Smith said the pur-
chase will be through The
Cooperative Purchasing
Program which offers Ohio
counties, townships, munici-
palities, school districts, pub-
lic libraries, regional park
districts and other political
subdivisions the benefits and
cost savings of buying goods
and services through state
In addition, new tractor
emissions standards will be
coming into effect in the near
future and Smith would like
to purchase a tractor before
the new standards take effect.
In the Police Committee
Report, councilman Greg
Brown reported that a resi-
dent has been refusing to pay
a water bill and although the
resident reports he is mov-
ing, the property is still in
his name and he is respon-
sible for the bill. Police Chief
Ethyl Vaughn said that she
has hand-delivered the water
bill to the resident explaining
that they have to pay the bill
until they sell the property.
The resident has also been
cited for junk cars.
In addition, Vaughn said
she is gearing up for the
Pumpkin Patch.
Its 18 years old and
needs painting, Vaughn
Council also set Trick
or Treat night, which will
be held from 6-7:30 pm on
October 25.
Smith spoke on the Second
Street reconstruction which
will be completed after the
old bank is gone.
Once Wards fills in the
basement of the old bank, the
parking lot will be finished
at the new bank and then the
paving on Second Street will
be completed, Smith said.
In the Maintenance Report,
Smith asked Wrasman to call
Delphos Tent and Awning to
fill in the remaining tent stake
holes in Water Street from the
Fort Fest celebration. Smith
thought it might cost $60 -
$75 to have them filled in.
Council discussed pur-
chasing new stop signs.
If we buy through the
county, we can get a complete
sign for $25, Wrasman said.
Get them from the county
as we need them, Smith said.
Costs of the sticker signs are
as much as the metal street
In the Minutes/Treasurers
Report, council approved the
minutes from last months
meeting and approved paying
$48,864 in bills.
The next Village council
meeting will be held in the
Library at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 15.
