AGRIBUSINESS

Universities work toward new


economic nitrogen management model
BY JAMES HOORMAN
Putnam County Extension
Ag Educator
news@delphosherald.com

investment.
The Iowa State calculator includes
Ohio specific recommendations and
is as simple as putting in the type of
nitrogen source, amount, price for
that nitrogen and the price of corn.
How will the final numbers from this
calculator differ from conventional
wisdom?
Significantly, for example, for a
producer using 28 percent at a cost
of $330 per ton and a corn price of
$3, the calculator shows a maximum
return to nitrogen at 140 pounds per
acre. If a farmer were to look to
the standard agronomy guide, using
a 180-bushel corn yield goal, the
recommendation would call for 190
pounds per acre.
The Ohio-specific data used in
the formulation of Iowa States nitrogen calculator is information that
we have been collecting from our
research trials, including on-farm trials, going back almost seven years,
said Harold Watters, Ohio State
University Extension Field Specialist
for Agronomic Systems. With current Ohio test sites around 80.
Through those on-farm Ohio trials, the main takeaway that Watters
wants to share with as many farmers
as possible across the state is that
nitrogen rate does not always affect

The following article was taken


from The Ohio Composting and
Manure Management website.
The current corn price is a significant incentive to consider a new way
of thinking when it comes to nitrogen
management. Ohio State University
and other Midwest universities have
discussed, since 2007, developing a
new economic nitrogen model. In
2007, nitrogen, phosphorus and other
input costs were low in cost relative
to corn prices that farmers did not
show much interest. Agriculture has
taken an economic 180-degree turn
since then and producers are looking
to save on input costs and are very
curious about a new Corn Nitrogen
Rate Calculator developed by Iowa
State University.
Always in the past, we used the
Tri-State Fertility Guide for recommendations on nitrogen for our corn
crop and, of course, that was based on
yield information, said Sam Custer,
Ohio State Extension Educator in
Darke County. Now we are looking
at using an economic model, based
strictly on the return on nitrogen

actual N per acre for every bushel


of corn produced. With newer corn
hybrids, the ratio is closer to 1.0
pound per bushel and some farmers
have reduced their N inputs down to
0.7 pounds of actual N applied for
every bushel of corn produced. One
way to reduce your N fertilizer bill is
to improve your soil organic matter
(SOM). Every 1 percent SOM holds
1,000 pounds of N and almost 50 percent of corn N needs come from the
existing SOM. Adding cover crops
is great way to improve N nutrient
efficiency.
A
Nutrient
Management
Certification (NMC) for NEW
Applicators without a Pesticide
Applicator Training (PAT) license
will be held 6-9 p.m. Nov. 18 at the
Kalida K of C Hall. This is a threehour training and is required if you
apply or broadcast fertilizer to more
than 50 acres of cropland per year.
There is no fee for this training but
you will need to get recertified every
three years, which will be done in
the future with a combined PAT/
NMC training. If you have a pesticide
applicator license, you can wait and
get three hours of PAT and two hours
of NMC training all in the same day
from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Feb. 3 or at night
from 4-9 p.m. March 17.

yield.
We have a whole lot of data now
that says there are farms in Ohio
were you can put on zero pounds of
nitrogen and maximize your yield,
or about 180 to 200 bushels to the
acre, Watters said. Then there are
farms in Ohio where you can apply
200 pounds of nitrogen and will still
only make 75 bushel corn due to factors like growing conditions that take
away that one-to-one pound of nitrogen to bushel relationship.
The goal of this new way of
thinking about nitrogen application
and management is to get growers
to think about the economics first
and take off a few pounds per acre
compared to conventional, and more
costly, theories concerning nitrogen
management.
How receptive are farmers in Ohio
to this new idea of nitrogen application? According to surveys filled out
by producers at fertilizer certification
program meetings around the state
over the recent weeks, 72 percent
say they agree or strongly agree that
when they set a corn nitrogen rate
they will utilize an economic-based
nitrogen calculator. (Ohio Ag Net,
OCAMM newsletter, 2014).
As a side note, with older corn
genetics, corn utilized 1.2 pounds of

Farmers
know
the
rewards of a career in
agriculture, but many of
todays youth may not.
Luckily, there is an abundance of evidence that
agriculture is a smart
career choice. According
to the USDA,
n e a r l y
55,000 jobs
in agriculture
are available
every year.
Many
of
the nations
largest landgrant institutions, such
as Penn State and Texas
A&M University, report
job placement rates above
90 percent for their ag
students.
Grow Ag Leaders helps
engage future generations
in agriculture by raising
awareness of the broad
range of career opportunities in the industry and by
supporting their college
education. The program
was created in response
to farmer requests to keep
rural youth involved in
agriculture. Farmers can
participate in the program
by encouraging students in
their community to apply
for a scholarship and by
endorsing their application. Because farmers play a crucial role in
the industry, each applicant is required to obtain
endorsements from at least
three local farmers.

manager at Monsanto.
As students who grew up
in rural areas learn more
about what agriculture
has become,
they are realizing that it
is a fascinating, hi-tech
industry, with
job growth,
job
security and high
wages. These
young people
are seeing that there are
emerging opportunities
for a new generation of
innovative young farmers, engineers, implement

Grow Ag Leaders is part
of the overall Americas
Farmers campaign, which
highlights the vital role
played by farmers, through
programs designed to
support rural communities. Farmers interested
in promoting the program and endorsing students scholarship applications can learn how at
GrowAgLeaders.com. The
scholarships are administered by the National
FFA Organization, but
FFA membership is not
required to apply. Students
have until Feb. 1, 2015, to

Philip Morris
International: New
US tobacco deal
RICHMOND, Va. (AP)
Philip Morris International
Inc. announced Wednesday
that it is partnering with
two U.S. tobacco leaf suppliers to buy its tobacco
rather than working directly
with farmers.
The seller of Marlboro
and other cigarette brands
overseas said the agreements with Virginia-based
Universal Corp. and North
Carolina-based Alliance
One International Inc. take
effect in April and will
help the company achieve
important supply chain efficiencies while remaining a
major purchaser of U.S.grown tobacco. About 35
Richmond-based employees will be impacted by the
change.
Philip
Morris
International, based in
New York and Switzerland,
already
works
with
Universal and Alliance One
to purchase tobacco all
over the world. According
to its website, more than
70 percent of Philip
Morris
Internationals
tobacco
comes
from
Brazil, Turkey, the U.S.,
Malawi, Indonesia, China,
Argentina,
Philippines,
Mozambique and Tanzania.
The move will also
require the leaf suppliers
to adhere to Philip Morris
Internationals policies that
prohibit workers under 18
from some of the most hazardous tasks, including harvesting tobacco. The company does allow children to
work with seedlings or in
barns sorting dried tobacco
leaves, but it may prohibit
those activities depending
on circumstances.
In May, a Human Rights
Watch report raised concerns about children working on U.S. tobacco farms.
Nearly three-quarters of
the children interviewed by
the group reported vomiting, nausea and headaches
while working on tobacco
farms. Those symptoms
are consistent with nicotine poisoning, often called
Green Tobacco Sickness,
which occurs when workers absorb nicotine through
their skin while handling
tobacco plants.
The report by the international rights group jumpstarted efforts from public health advocates and
lawmakers to get kids off
tobacco farms. Two years
ago, the Obama administration backed off a rule that
wouldve banned children
from dangerous agriculture jobs. Human Rights
Watch, which had previously noted that Philip
Morris International has
the most detailed and
protective labor policies,
applauded the companys
move Wednesday.
Philip
Morris
International is the worlds
second-biggest cigarette
seller, behind state-controlled China National
Tobacco Corp. Richmondbased Altria Group Inc.,
the owner of Philip Morris
USA, spun off Philip Morris
International as a separate
company in 2008. Altria is
the largest U.S. cigarette
seller.

I really dont know


who was to blame during
Sundays dustup between
Jeff Gordon and Brad
Keselowski at NASCARs
Texas Motor Speedway
race.
I dont pretend to know
the ins and outs regarding
what goes on during a race

on the track or in the cars


that the men and women
drive.
It is one of the very
few sports I know next to
nothing about outside of
the drivers that would
include polo, water polo,
anything to do with X
Games, ostrich racing,
camel jockeying, dog and
pony shows, uh there is
nothing to see here!

COLUMBUS They feign indifference and say that they dont care.
Still, make no mistake about it, the
Ohio State Buckeyes hear all of that
stuff about not playing good teams and
failing when they do. And it makes them
angry.
It also makes them particularly cognizant of the importance of Saturdays
game at No. 8 Michigan State.
We understand its a pretty pivotal game in our season, defensive
lineman Michael Bennett said. Theyre
the highest-ranked opponent weve had
all year. It kind of is a deciding factor of
how this seasons going to go.
After three years of slogging through
mostly overmatched non-conference
teams and a weakened Big Ten, No. 13
Ohio State finally is presented with a
quality opponent.
The Buckeyes who just like the
Spartans have won six in a row and are
7-1 overall and 4-0 in the Big Ten
know what a rare opportunity it is for
them to impress the rest of the country

for a change. In the wake of a 35-21


Sept. 6 home loss to Virginia Tech, they
know there wont be a second chance.
They know that if they lose, their claims
of being a top team will be hollow.
With that loss to Virginia Tech,
we lost a lot of respect, Bennett
continued. But its not about making sure that everybody loves us
in the country or respects us in the
country. Its about winning games
and making sure we have a chance
to go where we want to go in the postseason.
After beating them, the Hokies have
gone on to lose five times. If its easy
to pinpoint the devastation of that loss,
its also hard to figure out what the
Buckeyes best win is. A double-overtime squeaker over a Penn State team
which has lost four in a row? A 52-24
rout of Big Ten newcomer, three-loss
Maryland?
So even though Ohio State has moved
up two spots in the second weekly
College Football Playoff rankings to
No. 14, its clear that only a win over the
Spartans (No. 8 CFP) will muzzle those
who say the Buckeyes subsist on a diet

of cream puffs.
If we win, good things could happen. If we lose, bad things could happen, offensive tackle Taylor Decker
said. Theyre a top-10 team. We want
to play them, we want to beat
them, just to show what were
capable of and show how good
of a team we are. Maybe we
havent been tested. Some people feel that way. Itll be a good
gauge.
Over Urban Meyers more than 2
years and 34 games as head coach, the
Buckeyes have played only seven times
against teams ranked in The Associated
Press Top 25 only one rated as high
as No. 10. Theyre 5-2 heading into their
only meeting against a ranked team so
far this season.
Meyer bristles when hes asked about
finally playing a team of equal talent.
He believes the Buckeyes have played
several good teams already. But he also
knows that the Spartans, who were 10thranked when they shocked the No. 2 and
unbeaten Buckeyes 34-24 a year ago in
the Big Ten title game, are considered a
step above.

France felt Keselowskis move at Texas was fine


By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. NASCAR chairman Brian France, who for at least two years
has pushed for racing to become more of a
contact sport, believes Brad Keselowski did
nothing wrong in the way he raced Jeff Gordon
in the closing laps at Texas Motor Speedway.
Keselowski tried to wedge his car into a
gap between Gordon and Jimmie Johnson
on a late restart in an attempt by Keselowski
to win the race. It caused contact between
Keselowski and Gordon, who got a flat tire
and spun after the incident. Gordon went
from racing for the win to a 29th-place finish and confronted Keselowski after the race
in a scene that quickly escalated into a brawl
between teams.
France felt Keselowski did exactly what
NASCAR expects from drivers racing for a
win.
He did exactly what I would expect
any driver that has that much on the line to
look at an opportunity, shoot a gap is what
he did, France said on SiriusXM Radio. It
was unfortunate that they touched and that
Gordons tire got cut and all the things that
happened for him. Very unfortunate. (But) late
in the race, things are going to happen when
guys are legitimately trying to win races or
compete at a high level.
Both drivers are trying for one of four
berths in the Nov. 16 championship finale at
Homestead-Miami Speedway. A win in any
of the three races of the third round of the
Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship earns
a driver an automatic berth into the finale;
both Gordon and Keselowski were racing for
that spot.
The win instead went to Jimmie Johnson
and the 8-driver Chase field heads into

Notes: Top-ranked Rory McIlroy and
Phil Mickelson, the 2007 and 2009 win-

Sundays race at Phoenix with all four spots


at Homestead still up for grabs.
As far back as 2012, when NASCAR was
beginning a series of rule changes to improve
the on-track product, France has pushed for
drivers to let it all hang out when a win is on
the line.
There arent a whole lot of people who
dont want to see more lead changes, or a
photo finish, or slamming and banging coming out of the fourth turn, France added
prior to speaking at the 2012 Beyond Sports
annual summit in London. We are unabashed
about wanting that. Its a contact sport and if
you have a chance to win and are in second
place on the last lap, would I expect there
to be some contact if you have a faster car?
Absolutely.
But there are consequences that come
with delivering that action, which Keselowski
learned following Sundays race when he
was left spitting blood following the pit
road brawl. The situation was escalated when
Kevin Harvick shoved Keselowski into a
scrum of crew members, a push Harvick
defended as his way of making Keselowski
answer for his aggressive racing.
Denny Hamlin has argued the gap
Keselowski tried to squeeze through was
not large enough for him to expect to clear
Gordon without contact and all drivers need
to understand that will lead to confrontation.
If I was in that car and his shoes, I would
have to know that Im not going to make it
through that hole without having contact of
some sort, Hamlin added. Thats fine. But
if it costs somebody a bad day, youre going
to have to expect retaliation.

Anyway, back to the subject at hand.
Was Keselowski stupid and reckless or
simply racing hard to win a race and become
a champion, like Gordon was quoted the other
day saying what he would do should a teammate like Junior be in his way?
Was Gordon and by extension, Kevin
Harvick right to go after Keselowski for
being such a scumbag weasel for wrecking
his chances to win or were they both hypocrites?
Gordons people Hendrick Motorsports
and Keselowskis people Roger Penske
have backed their respective racers, as
youd expect.
Well, whatever the case may be, you will

Browns, Bengals play biggest


Ohio game since 1986
Associated Press

CINCINNATI The Browns and


Bengals were playing for first place
late in the 1986 season. Bernie Kosar
set the tone on the first play, throwing a
long completion to Reggie Langhorne
at Riverfront Stadium.
Marty Schottenheimers team
pulled away to a 34-3 victory that
day. Sam Wyches Bengals
couldnt get anything
going not even with
Boomer Esiason throwing
to Cris Collinsworth as
the Browns dominated.
Why the history lesson?
Thats the last time
Ohios two NFL teams
played with first place at stake so late
in a season.
The Bengals (5-2-1) are alone
atop the AFC North, with everyone
else right behind. The Browns (5-3)
could move into a first-place tie with
Pittsburgh (6-3) and show theyre
ready to be taken seriously as a contender tonight at Paul Brown Stadium.
A victory would give the Browns a
3-game winning streak, their best start
since 1994, and a lot of credibility as
an up-and-coming team.
Itll certainly be a good measuring stick because Cincinnati this year
has been probably the best team in the
AFC North, left tackle Joe Thomas
said. If we want to win the AFC

North, were going to have to beat


Cincinnati, and this is our first opportunity.
What about stage fright?
If youre at this point in your
career, youve played on multiple
national-stage games, quarterback
Brian Hoyer replied. Guys have been
in Super Bowls, playoff games. This
isnt like the high school team playing on the weekly Friday night
game on TV.
The Bengals
are trying to gain
respect, too. The
defending division champions
have developed
a reputation for playing well most of
the time but falling apart in the biggest
games. Theyve reached the playoffs
each of the last three seasons and gone
0-3 in the postseason.
They had their first chance to make
an impression during a Sunday night
game in New England on Oct. 5 and
got drubbed 43-17.
They get a chance to make a second
impression tonight, this time at home.
You love to have that type of
atmosphere, especially at here at home
in front of the whole nation, defensive tackle Domata Peko said. It
gives us an opportunity to bounce
back from our slip-up we had against
the Patriots. Its another prime-time

game and well be ready to go.


Things to watch at Paul Brown
Stadium tonight:
STILL EMOTIONAL: Bengals
defensive tackle Devon Still will have
his 4-year-old daughter, Leah, watching him play for the first time. The
girl is fighting cancer but was well
enough to fly from Philadelphia. The
Bengals raised money for pediatric
cancer research by donating money from his jersey
sales to Childrens Hospital
in Cincinnati. Theyll present a check for more than
$1 million on the field,
with Leah participating in
an emotional moment.
The crowd will go
crazy, Still said. Theyve been supporting her this whole time with her
being all the way in Philadelphia and I
know with her being in Cincinnati and
them having a chance to see her, its
going to get the crowd kind of hyped
up.
BENGALS BAD AT NIGHT,
BROWNS BAD ON ROAD: Both
teams are working against their history in this one. The Bengals are playing in prime time for the second time
this season. That lopsided loss in New
England left them 18-40 in prime time.
The Browns havent won an AFC
North game on the road since Sept. 28,
2008, dropping their last 17 away from
home against division rivals.

Crestview, Spencerville set for rematch in playoff opener


BY JOHN PARENT
DHI Media Sports Editor
news@delphosherald.com
CONVOY Just three
short weeks ago, Spencerville
visited Crestview in a game
to determine the leader of
the Northwest Conference.
On Friday night, the Bearcats
again head west to take on
the Knights, this time in a
winner-take-all Division VI
playoff game.
For
Spencerville,
which dropped a 22-21
final in week eight, its
the second-ever postseason appearance, the last
coming in 2006 when
the Bearcats lost an opening
round game to Allen East.
Crestview is making its second-straight trip to the playoffs, and hosting for the first
time. The Knights made an
appearance in the Division
V bracket in 2005, losing at
Liberty-Benton. In 2013, the
Knights traveled to Lima and
defeated LCC in Division VI
before a loss to Ada ended
the season.
In week 10, Spencerville
lost to Jefferson in Delphos.
That game not only meant the
Bearcats wound up as conference runners-up (along with
Crestview and Columbus
Grove), but meant that
Crestview moved into the top
four in Division VI, Region
20, setting up a rematch with
the Bearcats.
The seasons first meeting

NWC

saw Spencerville roll up a


20-7 first-half lead before a
pair of fourth quarter touchdowns, and a fortuitous
2-point conversion, gave the
Knights the win.
Crestview coach Jared
Owens says a similar game
should be expected on Friday
night.
Its going to be another
tough, hard-fought football
game, Owens said. I think
the two teams are very
even, and, for the most
part, both offensively
and defensively we try
to do things in a similar
way.
Though the Bearcats
and Knights dont line up
in the same formations on
offense, the play-calling and
results have been remarkably
similar this year.
Spencerville
and
Crestview ranked one and
two in the NWC in total
offense, rushing offense, and
scoring offense. The Bearcats
attempted fewer passes (76)
than any school in the league,
while Crestview threw the
ball just 93 times. While
the production is similar,
the style is anything but.
Spencerville lines up with
three backs tight to the line of
scrimmage while Crestview
uses a more open read-option
style of rushing attack.
Both teams feature stout
defenses, particularly versus an opposing running
game. Crestview holds the

notice an item in our paper today about what


NASCAR and its chairman, Brian France,
thought about it.
Believe it or not, I was going to write about
this anyway and write the same thing because
somewhere in the back of my legendary (in
my own mind) mind, I had remembered some
time ago the same or similar comments being
made by the powers-that-be.
In this case, France thought that what
Keselowski did was exactly what NASCAR
wanted him to do.
They WANT drivers to go for the wins and
not hold anything back.
Isnt that why they have revamped the system to begin with, why they went to the Chase
for the Sprint Cup Championship format from
the start?

opposition to 142 yards per


game on the ground while
Spencerville yields just 103
per contest.
In week eight, the Bearcats
were limited to 202 yards on
the ground, 130 fewer than
their season average, while
Crestview gained 283, which
was 30 yards short of the
Knights average output.
In the week eight meeting,
Spencervilles Zack Goecke
racked up 135 yards on 17
carries. For the season, Goecke gained
over 1,400 rushing
yards on scored 23
times. That production earned him a
place on the allNWC first team.
Zaleski,
meanwhile,
ranked second in the league
in rushing yards and in touchdowns. He had 138 yards
on the ground in Crestviews
win over the Bearcats,
including 68 on the fourthquarter touchdown that eventually gave Crestview the
lead. Zaleski was named a
first-teamer at quarterback
and the conference Back of
the Year. Fullback Jake Lippi,
a second-team all-NWC pick,
rushed for 107 yards in the
win over Spencerville, on his
way to 478 rushing yards on
the campaign.
Were both similar
styles of football teams, I
would say, Owens added.
Whichever team can make
a big play, or maybe take

advantage of a miscue, can


probably steal the momentum
of the game.
Prior to week 10, miscues
were something the Bearcats
werent all that familiar with.
Spencerville turned the ball
over four times in its loss
to Jefferson, including three
times via fumble. In the
seasons first nine contests,
Spencerville had only turned
the ball over a total of six
times.
Crestview won the
turnover battle 2-1 in
the first meeting, with
Dylan
Grandstaff
and Zaleski each
intercepting Bearcat
quarterback Mason
Nourse.
Despite the extra attention on school grounds and
within the community this
week, Owens says his team
is loose and comfortable
heading into the game.
I know theres a heightened sense of excitement
within the community,
but our guys focus has
been really good, Owens
explained. I think being
able to experience what the
(playoff) atmosphere was
like a year ago might give
us an advantage. I think our
kids relish the opportunity
to play in that type of atmosphere - the type I think
well have on Friday night.
Theyre looking forward to
competing against a really
good opponent.

They wanted more hard racing, especially


during these last few events leading up to the
climax and by extension fan enthusiasm
and excitement and by further extension!
better ratings and water-cooler talk and
etc., etc. more dollars!
How many racers have been quoted more
or less the same thing: about how this new
format has ratcheted up the intensity a few
levels and has made races even more thrilling
and perhaps dangerous?
From the one or two races that I watch a
year with others, it seemed that its a good
move.
Think about it. For example, at Daytona,
isnt it just as much anticipated about getting
through The Big One as who gets the win?
Only now, this late in the season, are fans

thinking just as much about who will get into


it with what racer than who gets the win in
the end?
I am not saying its necessarily bad:
think about NASCARs roots in the moonshiners and ridge runners (a reference to
The Dukes of Hazzard) and the more
than one melees we have seen in the past.
Could it be they want to get back some
of the traditions that may have been
lost as the racing world has gone more
corporate and maybe have lessened the
product?
An analogy: how many of us NFL fans are
ticked off about the way the game is being
officiated or over-officiated, in my ever so
humble but correct opinion! because is has
become the dreaded BIG Business?

Were in our early 50s and both of


us have been married before. We get
along fine and our relationship is
proceeding slowly, but appropriately.
My problem is, when we talk on
the phone we dont really have a
conversation. Ingrid will talk without
interruption, sometimes for five
minutes at a time. I cant get a word
in. I can put the phone down and come
back and shell still be talking. Its
not quite that bad in person, although
shes still quite a talker. Often, shell
ask me a question, then interrupt me
when I try to answer. It really bugs
me.
It has reached a point that I dont
want to talk to her on the phone. The
calls can last 30 minutes or more,
and I get bored and irritated. How
do I address this with her without
hurting her feelings or affecting
our relationship? Shes starting to
feel my reluctance to call her back.
-- GETTING AN EARFUL IN
ARIZONA
DEAR GETTING AN EARFUL:
If Ingrid is starting to feel your
reluctance to return her calls, Im
guessing she has found a way to let

monologues -- notice I didnt say


conversations -- make you feel.
What shes doing is rude. The cause
may be nervousness, thoughtlessness,
or that shes a compulsive talker. If
she cares about you, she will want to
know if shes doing something thats
making you back away. Being honest
with her is the only way to get this
fixed, if the problem IS fixable. At
your ages, lifelong habits may not be
easy to break.

Toy makers new


darlings: tiny
critics on YouTube
NEW YORK (AP) A
snaggletooth 8-year-old. A
middle schooler with a punk
rocker bob cut and big earrings. Tween siblings with a
penchant for playing.
These are among the young
power brokers who will determine the toys that will be
under Christmas trees this
year.
At a time when toy sales
have stagnated for years at
$22 billion, children who
review toys on YouTube are
wielding increasing influence.
Toy makers are courting them
for their ability to connect
with a generation that views
the online video sharing service like baby boomers do
HBO.
Kids trust other kids more
so than they would an adult,
says Marc Rosenberg, a
Chicago-based toy consultant.
Leading the pack of pintsized YouTube personalities
is Evan, 8, who has dimples
and a few missing teeth.
With over 1 billion views
between his three channels,
hes YouTubes most popular
kid. He gets over 800 million
views from EvanTubeHD,
where he reviews the toys.
EvanTubeHD, which features special effects thanks
to his dad, Jared, who runs
a video production company
full-time, is known for telling
kids how to play with toys.
Evan speaks directly to them,
with occasional cameos from
his little sister and mom.
In a review of Angry Birds
Space Softee Dough playset,
Evan apologizes for a noticeable lisp: Sorry if Im talking
a little funny today because
I just lost my tooth. Later,
after trying to bite an apple he
attached toy face pieces to
and called Angry Bird Fruit,
he quips: Its too hard to bite
without a tooth.
Behind Evan are a few
other young YouTube phenoms. Most of the children
are identified by first name
because their parents dont
want to risk their safety:
Siblings Noah, 14,
Jonah, 12, and Emma, 11
star in KittiesMama, which
has nearly 400 million views.
KittiesMama is a reality show
that chronicles the kids daily
lives, including birthday parties. They also review toys
and Emma shows kids how to
look like characters from toy
lines like My Little Pony.

Obama defiant, vows immigration action this year


ERICA WERNER
Associated Press
WASHINGTON President Barack Obamas
determination to act alone to change the immigration system promptly drove a wedge Wednesday
into the post-election commitment from the president and Republican leaders to find common
ground under the new political alignment.
Obama defiantly stood by his pledge to act on
his own to reduce deportations, grant work permits and improve border security by the end of
the year despite resounding election victories by
Republicans strongly opposed to his plans. The
Senates likely majority leader next year, Mitch
McConnell, R-Ky., declared that such a move
would amount to waving a red flag in front of a
bull.
On a day when both sides tried to herald a new
era of potential compromise, immigration stood
out not only as a single obstacle to bipartisanship
but as a sign that the hard-fought election and the
heavy Democratic losses had not pushed partisan
sparring aside.
I have no doubt that there will be some
Republicans who are angered or frustrated by any
executive action that I may take, Obama said in a
post-election news conference. Those are folks,

I just have to say, who are also deeply opposed to


immigration reform, in any form, and blocked the
House from being able to pass a bipartisan bill.
He cast his executive actions as an inducement
for Republicans to pass their own immigration bill.
The best way, if folks are serious about getting immigration reform done, is going ahead and
passing a bill and getting it to my desk. And then
the executive actions that I take go away, he said.
Republicans led by McConnell pledged to use
their newfound majorities to stop him.
I hope he wont do that, because I do think it
poisons the well for the opportunity to address a
very important domestic issue, McConnell said in
Louisville, Kentucky, as he celebrated a victory in his
own Senate race and the GOPs capture of the Senate.
Some on the right said executive action on
immigration could even be grounds for impeachment. Several House Republicans said Obama
would make it very difficult to cooperate on other
issues if he acts on immigration.
Him moving ahead like that, I think hes completely tone deaf to what happened last night, said
Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn.
And a half-dozen GOP senators, including Ted
Cruz of Texas, wrote to Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid, D-Nev., on Wednesday urging him
to quickly pass legislation to block Obama from

Bryan wins top award,


Lambert shines at CMAs
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Miranda
Lambert was the reigning queen of Wednesdays
Country Music Association Awards, but Luke
Bryan marked a long-earned breakthrough by
winning entertainer of the year.
The win was Bryans first CMA, despite
his multiple hits, top-selling albums and topgrossing tours.
Well, first of all, I never met Garth. Hey
Garth, Bryan said, hugging the legend, who
presented the top award.
I hope I can have enough time to say
everything thats on my mind, an emotional Bryan said, thanking God, his fans,
and his teary-eyed wife in the audience at the
Bridgestone Arena. I have some angels in
heaven, my brother and sister are making this
night possible for me.
Wednesday night marked a breakthrough
for Bryan, who was also snubbed at the recent
Grammy Awards.
Still, Lambert, who was nominated in nine
categories, was the nights big winner: The
fiery singer took home four trophies, including album of the year for Platinum and
single of the year for Automatic. She stole
the night with fashion choices that were winners, too, and performances. She sang twice
onstage, including a country-tinged version
of All About That Bass with breakthrough
singer Meghan Trainor, where Shelton looked
up and bopped his head.
Lambert won her fifth consecutive female
vocalist of the year, and Shelton repeated the
record for male vocalist of the year.
Let me just say that before I say, I really
thought Luke was going to win this, he said.
This means so much to me this is a big

night for my family.


The night featured a number of collaborative performances: Shelton sang with Ashley
Monroe; the Doobie Brothers performed with
Lady Antebellums Hillary Scott, Jennifer
Nettles and Hunter Hayes; George Strait and
Eric Church performed Cowboys Like Us;
and pop diva Ariana Grande sported a mini
top and skirt as she sang the hit Bang Bang
alongside Little Big Town, who won vocal
group of the year.
But the nights best collaboration was
Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley. The
white-hot duo, hosting the CMAs for a seventh time, earned laugh after laugh for jokes
that ranged from Ebola to Taylor Swift to
Underwoods baby bump.
Swifts switch to pop from country was
referred to as Post Pardon Taylor Swift
Disorder, or PPTSD.
President Barack Obama doesnt care
about PPTSD! Paisley yelled. Underwood
followed with: Im pretty sure its why the
democrats lost the senate.
Underwood and Paisley sang a version of Dolly Partons Jolene, calling it
Quarantine. Paisley also earned roaring
laughter when he noted that the ABC series
Black-ish, which airs Wednesdays, would
not be airing because of the CMAs.
If you were expecting to see the show
Black-ish, this aint it I hope youre
enjoying White-ish, he said.
The song of the year went to Musgraves,
who won for Follow Your Arrow, which
she co-wrote with Brandy Clark, who is
openly gay and was among the contenders for
new artist of the year.

Project

(Continued from page 1)


Each Christmas season, the Delphos
Community Christmas Project assists local families and children living within the city school
district with making their Christmas special.
Project Coordinator Edna Fischer said
she grew up experiencing a huge family
Christmas celebration.
My passion for the project is partially
due to my love of Christmas, she said.
As a school nurse, I saw so many students
coming back from Christmas break with no
new clothes or toys nothing to share with
classmates.
She said the holiday is a big deal for everybody and she wanted to do whatever I could
so kids dont have to come back to school
with nothing after Christmas.
She said in general, this economy is better elsewhere but the area doesnt have much
economic development supporting industries
paying higher wages.
Be an angel and take a soldier off of the

tree, Fischer said with compassion. Each


colorful paper soldier has information about a
girl or boy including their gift wishes. People
can select how many items they would like to
purchase for each child.
Angel Trees are located at Union, US, First
Financial and First Federal banks.
Fischer said that she and Bev CrossMcNeal have begun interviews with each
family to find out the childrens specific
needs; clothing size and toy and/or game
preferences.
We will help as many families as we
can, Fischer said. People can call for interviews which are ongoing until all needs are
fulfilled.
In 2013, the community-driven project
made the Christmas wishes of 148 families
and 349 kids a reality. In addition, organizations, individuals and high school students donated funds and/or time to prepare
and deliver 153 fruit plates to home bound
seniors, 115 food boxes, 160 $100 food gift
cards, 127 pairs of shoes, 13 new bikes,

taking executive action. Otherwise, the senators


warned, theyll use all procedural means necessary to resolve what they called a constitutional
crisis of Obamas making.
But Obama appeared in no mood for waiting.
He had already angered Latinos and immigration
advocacy groups this fall when he delayed executive action until after the election.
What Im not going to do is just wait, he said.
I think its fair to say Ive shown a lot of patience.
Immigration advocates made clear that their
patience, too, was at an end.
The election is over. Act boldly to bring relief
to the millions facing deportation and family separation, Janet Murguia, head of National Council
of La Raza, said at a news conference Wednesday.
The Hispanic community has waited too long and
expects you to fulfill your promise.
White House officials say Obama, who is traveling to Asia and Australia next week, would not take
any action until late November at the earliest and
could wait until December.
Advocates in touch with the White House
expect Obama to expand a 2-year-old program that
deferred deportations for more than 500,000 immigrants brought here illegally as minors, and made
them eligible for work permits. He is also expected
to take steps to make more business visas available.

Court
(Continued from page 2)
Kaury Thiebaut, 25, Van
Wert, was sentenced to two
years prison, with credit for
68 days served, for felonious
assault, a felony of the second
degree. He was also ordered
to pay court costs.
Judicial release hearing
Harley Maroney, 19,
Ohio City, appeared for a
hearing on his motion for
judicial release from prison
after serving six months of
his 12-month sentence for
gross sexual imposition. His

request was granted and he


was placed on five years
community control with 90
days jail, 30 days jail at later
date, 200 hours community
service, no unsupervised contact with any person under 18
years old, no contact whatsoever with the victim and three
years intensive probation; and
ordered to pay court costs
and partial appointed counsel
fees.
The remainder of his
prison sentence was deferred
pending completion of community control.

Police
(Continued from page 2)
On Sunday, officers were dispatched to a domestic violence

Marathon
(Continued from page 1)
Both Evelyn and Emma have
been patients at the Nationwide
Childrens Hospital. Their parents
and family witnessed the tender
loving care given to these little
girls and hundreds of other children who have been patients at this
health center. Participation in the
marathon gave the family members
the opportunity to give back to
the hospital for the care the girls
received as patients. Between the
two, Team Evelyn and Emmas
Greatest Dream Team, they raised
more than $12,000 for the hospital.
Family runners came from as far
away as Cleveland, Colorado and
Florida.
Little Evelyn Borchers was
born Feb. 14, 2014, with multiple
congenital heart defects. She was
rushed from the hospital of her
birth to the Childrens Hospital
soon after birth where her condition was discovered. She was a
patient at the hospital for 77 days.
On Feb. 21, her pastor from
their Catholic Church in Sunbury
came to her hospital room to bap-

tize her. Her godmother was a sister of her father and her godfather
was a brother of her mother. Her
godfather, Michael, was not bodily
present because he is in the U. S.
Air Force, stationed in Florida.
However, he was present via of the
computer and the Internet. With
todays technology, he was able to
actively participate in the baptismal ceremony.
Visitors were limited during her
confinement and doctors wanted
her to gain more strength before
performing surgery. Surgery was
performed March 3 by a team of
expert doctors, assisted by a staff
of wonderful nurses. Evelyn was
able to come home on May 3.
During her stay in the hospital,
Bill and Diana stayed at the Ronald
McDonald House. Evelyns mother
is blessed to be able to be a stay-athome mom. Her parents are happy
to say: Evelyn is doing very well,
scooting around and getting into
things shes not supposed to.
Emma Dickman was born 13
weeks early, weighing only 2
pounds, 14 ounces and spent the
first 72 days of her life in the NICU

at Nationwide Childrens Hospital.


One week before her first birthday,
she was diagnosed with cerebral
palsy. Cerebral palsy is a condition
that causes movement difficulties.
It results from an injury to the
brain that occurs before a child is
born, during delivery or shortly
after birth. Other times, there is no
known reason for the brain injury.
There is no cure; however, there
are many treatments and resources that can greatly assist a child
to ensure they achieve their full
potential.
We are truly blessed to have
such amazing people working with
our children. The doctors and therapists are not just professionals,
they are members of our extended
family, Emmas father, Steve,
said.
In June 2013, Emma underwent a selective dorsal rhizotomy
(SDR) at the St. Louis, Missouri
Childrens Hospital, which has
a center specializing in cerebral
palsy treatments. An SDR involves
sectioning (cutting) of some of
the sensory nerve fibers that come
from the muscles and enter the

spinal cord, which helps reduce


spaslicity.
When not in school or therapy,
Emma enjoys drawing and playing
with her 6-year-old brother, Owen,
and their golden lab.
Emmas parents are both
employed in special ed in the
Dublin School system. Their coworkers and students at Jerome
High School have been big supporters for Emma and help with
her greatest dream. Emma has
mastered the scooter, her walker
and now her crutches. Her greatest dream is to walk. Emma joined
her father to finish the marathon
by walking (with her crutches) for
the last quarter mile, often saying:
I can do it! According to the
Sunday Dispatch: It was the most
consecutive steps Emma had ever
taken in her life.
Emma is a warrior! We are so
proud of her. She has a spirit that
inspires many and all she has to
do is smile to make everyone feel
amazing. She is such a powerful
little girl. After her SDR in St.
Louis, she took on the pain with
such grace. Which just so happens

to be her middle name. She amazed


us again with her mental grit and
determination when she finished
this years Columbus Marathon,
Steve said. It feels so amazing to
know our little 8-year-old girl has
inspired so many. We have heard
from people around the world and
its so wonderful that Emma is part
of something so positive. There
are a lot of loving people out there
wanting to help others, which the
$7,900 Emmas Dream Team has
raised for the Childrens Hospital
is a testament to that. Together we
can all make a difference. My wife
showed me a quote that explains
Emma in a few words, Though
she be but little, she is fierce!
by William Shakespeare. Thanks
to everyone who has helped the
hospital. This wonderful hospital,
along with the staff believes in
Kids, Cures and Miracles.
Emma is also an inspiration to
her great-grandmother who sometimes gets bogged down with the
clutter created by her many projects.
If Emma can do it I can do
it! she said.
