Commissioners, Delphos discuss sharing new eco dev person


By Ed GEBErt
DHI Media Editor
egebert@timesbulletin.com
VAN WERT A new collaboration is being discussed to try to
increase economic development efforts in the region.
On Friday, Delphos Mayor Michael Gallmeier and Delphos Safety-Service Director Shane Coleman met with the Van Wert County
Commissioners to discuss a partnership on economic development
efforts. The commissioners have
been looking for someone to help
County Economic Development
Director Sarah Smith on a number
of projects. One possible plan is to
team up with the City of Delphos
and split the expense of having another part-time person in the Eco
Dev Office.
Theres too much for Sarah to
do in that office now with all the
stuff were doing, said Commissioner Todd Wolfrum. Were looking at someone from Delphos.
The commissioners did admit
that they have talked with one per-

son about such a position and would


like to put the plan into motion in
the near future. The discussion on
Friday dealt with one person who is
a Delphos native who could put in
time both in the county office and
in Delphos.
The deal would likely hinge on a
financial contribution which is currently being made by the City of
Delphos to what is now the City of
Van Wert Economic Development
Office being moved to the County
Eco Dev Office. That $2,500 donation may make the hire economically feasible with the county picking up the remainder of the expense
to make this person a 24-hour-aweek employee.
Wolfrum said, We talked about
this person working here and in
Delphos. When here, shes learning what were doing, helping out
Sarah with some stuff like grants
and stuff like that which can be
used for Delphos, and when shes Van Wert County Commissioner Todd Wolfrum, Delphos Safety-Services Director Shane Coleman,
in Delphos, shed be working for and Delphos Mayor Michael Gallmeier discuss a partnership on economic development efforts

Get shot: flu season is here

Turkeys ready for presidential visit


State Senator Keith Faber, Congressman Bob Latta, and State Representative Tony Burkley were on hand to observe the National Thanksgiving
Turkey at Cooper Farms in Ft. Recovery Friday. Two turkeys from the flock
will be selected for the special national honor. After being pardoned by
President Obama at the ceremony, the turkeys will be sent to Morven Park
in Leesburg, Virginia. (Submitted Photo)

Flu season is here and health departments


are stressing the importance of getting a flu
shot.
Everyone should get a flu shot every year
but right now, before the holidays, is a really
good time to get one, Allen County Health
Department Assistant Director of Nursing Deb
Roberts. We see a lot higher occurrence of the
flu after the holidays. Now is the time to get it.
The health department has 200 doses left,
which is about half what they had in stock.
The county has seen 16 cases of hospitalization due to the flu since August and at least
one case every month in 2014 except October,
when none were reported.
We are starting see more cases reported
but we only receive the information if someone is hospitalized, Roberts said. Its definitely here and we cant stress enough the
importance of getting a flu shot, especially if
someone is going to be around an infant less
than 6 months-old or an elderly person.
Roberts has also heard people say they got
a flu shot and it made them sick. This is not the
case, she said.
You can have the flu up to 24 hours before
you feel like you have the flu, she said. Its just
a coincidence that it showed up just after getting
a shot. Flu shots do not make people sick.
The Putnam County Health Department is
on track to administer close to the same number of immunizations this year as in the past.
We have seen 1,400 adults and between
300 and 400 children, so were close to where
we were last year, Director of Nursing Sherri
Recker said. We havent had any hospitalizations from the flu so we want to stress that its
not too late to get a flu shot. We are out of the

high-dose senior citizen shot but we can take


care of adults and children.
Van Wert County hasnt had any hospitalized flu cases reported since August and stands
ready with all types of immunizations.
We have the pediatric injection, flu mist,
and the high-dose for senior citizens, Van
Wert County Health Department Director of
Nursing Kim Haas said Friday. We are on
track as far as how many we have given this
year compared to last year but we dont serve
as many people as we used to since you can
get a flu shot in so many different places now.

VAN WERT A group of


area businesspeople got a closer look at two academic programs available to high school
students in Van Wert. The Economic Development Advisory
Group met in the First Federal
Lecture Hall to hear from students and teachers involved in
Project Lead the Way courses
in pre-engineering and biomedical science.
The meeting took a mostly
question-and-answer format
with Bob Spath and Zane

McElroy talking about the preengineering track and Kathleen Overmyer, assisted by
Chuck Rollins, discussing the
biomedical projects.
Both programs earned certification from Project Lead the
Way (PLTW) earlier this week.
The pre-engineering program
has been offered through Vantage Career Center with classes
given at Van Wert High School.
According to Spath, that program
has approximately 50-55 students
involved presently. Overmyer
noted around 40 students are a
part of the biomedical program
offered through VWHS.
StEM/12

have been 150-200 jobs they could not


fill for a variety of reasons.
Theres a sense of entitlement and
some people do not want to get off unemployment, she said. Its extremely
easy to get benefits one way or the other.
In September, the unemployment rate
for the Tri-county area was: Allen 5.0,
Van Wert 4.3 and Putnam 3.9.
According to The Department of Job
and Family Services, Ohios unemploywant to work but are told they cant be ment rate was down from 5.7 percent in
hired until they have the vocational July and August to 5.3 percent in Octotraining, Grothouse said. They cant ber.

Arrest in 2007 killing of


mom who led double life
DENVER (AP) A man
arrested Friday in the killing of a Colorado single mom
who vanished more than seven
years ago was one of the many
unsavory clients she had while
leading a double life as a paid
escort, investigators say.
Lester Ralph Jones, 63,
was among the last people
who called Paige Birgfeld before her 8-year-old daughter
reported her missing in June
2007.
Authorities arrested Jones
on suspicion of murder, kidnapping and arson. They allege he killed the 34-year-old
woman, dumped her body and
torched her car.
Police dogs found Jones
scent in Birgfelds charred, red
Ford Focus and a gas can near
his desk at the RV dealership
where he worked, according
to a 46-page arrest affidavit
detailing how Jones quickly
emerged as the main suspect.
No attorney for Jones was
listed in court records, but he
denied any involvement when
contacted by police early in
their investigation.
Detectives also questioned
and ruled out at least
eight other men, including
Birgfelds former husband and
several other clients. Witnesses said one of those clients had
an arsenal of guns and a pile
of cocaine.
Birgfeld was twice divorced and living with her
three children in Grand Junction, about 200 miles west of
Denver. Friends knew her as
a devoted mother who sold
kitchen wares and did other
jobs.
My daughter was viva-

cious, knock-down goodlooking, had a terrific smile
and was always optimistic,
her father, Frank Birgfeld,
told The Associated Press on
Friday. She just seemed to
think somehow, some way she
would manage through it all.
Her father said he was unaware of her double life until after she died and police
learned she had worked for
years as an escort, running a
prostitution business called
Models Inc. A former husband said Birgfeld was the
lone employee, going by the
name Carrie, but convinced
customers a variety of women
worked there.
Her apparent double life
attracted widespread attention to the mystery of her disappearance, including a 48
Hours segment called The
Secret Life of Paige Birgfeld
in 2008.

During the last 12 months, the number

Golden years? Randy


objects! Thats just code
for old, right? While he
may have a few years under
his belt, that just makes
him a better, sweeter, more

DELPHOS St. Johns
Elementary first-graders have
been hard at work reading
several stories of The Three
Little Pigs and discussing
the many different literary
elements of each story.
They also discussed the
importance of using good
materials and knowledge
when constructing a building.
The children used the
iPads to research different
structural elements and materials. They were excited to
use the iPads to discover the
fun of literacy and read various versions of The Three
Little Pigs.
To extend their thinking,
the students were then given
a STEM challenge where
they had to construct a house
out of the given materials
(straws, popsicle sticks, etc.)
that the Big Bad Wolf (or a
hair dryer) couldnt blow
down.
The students learned a
lot about literary elements,
research strategies, and
various structural concepts.
The most fun of all was pretending they were the three
little pigs and the Big Bad
Wolf was trying to blow
their houses down.

A DHI Media publication

China, Europe
chase growth
amid global
slowdown
BEIJING (AP) Chinas
central bank unexpectedly
slashed interest rates on Friday
to re-energize the worlds No. 2
economy, joining a growing list
of major economies that are trying to encourage growth in the
face of a global slowdown.
The president of the European Central Bank said Friday
he was ready to step up stimulus for the 18-country eurozone
economy, where growth is meager and unemployment is soaring. And Japans government
this week delayed a tax increase
after the country slipped back
into recession. Japans central
bank late last month increased
its purchases of government
bonds and other assets to try to
revive growth.
News
of
Chinas
(OTCBB:NWCH) actions and
the ECBs hints of further stimulus triggered a surge in stock
markets, particularly in Europe. Germanys DAX rose 2.6
percent, while the Dow Jones
industrial average rose 0.5 percent to close at a record high.
Asian stocks had closed before
the Chinese announcements.
Fridays moves highlighted
an increasing divide in the global economy. The United States
is showing signs of steady
growth, prompting the Federal
Reserve to rein in its stimulus
efforts.
So far, the U.S. has escaped
any drag from the slowdown
overseas. Fed policymakers
said at a meeting last month that
the impact on the U.S. would be
quite limited.
Jay Bryson, a global economist at Wells Fargo Securities,
said the U.S. is relatively insulated from overseas developments. Exports are a smaller
source of growth than in other
developed nations and many
major employers, such as health
care and education providers,
are largely unaffected by overseas activity.
The slowdown in global
growth is becoming an increasing concern for policymakers. Japan confirmed this
week that it has fallen back
into recession and will delay a
tax increase to help consumer
spending.
In Europe, it is not only
weak growth but also the low
inflation rate that is worrying the ECB. Low inflation or
an outright drop in prices can
weaken an economy further by
encouraging delays in spending
and investment.

STORY OF THE DAY

Kids give first lady


sarcastic thanks
on Twitter
By MARy CLARE JALONICK
Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) School kids are giving thanks
to first lady Michelle Obama just in time for the holiday
with a sarcastic Twitter hashtag about unappealing school
lunches.
Along with photos of unsavory-looking school meals, the
hashtag #ThanksMichelleObama was among the top trends
on Twitter within the United States for a time on Friday.
The first lady has become the symbol of healthier school
meals as she has pushed standards implemented in 2012 that
require more fruits, vegetables and whole grains in the lunch
line in an effort to combat childhood obesity. There are also
limits on sodium, sugar and fat.
While many schools have put the standards in place successfully, others have said some of the new foods end up in
the trash can.
Many of the photos have a Thanksgiving theme think
sad-looking stuffing while others are everyday meals.
The hashtag appears to have started around two years ago,
but didnt really catch on until Friday after several websites
picked it up.
Had a very #healthylunch today, Hunter Whitney of
Wisconsin tweeted. The apple definitely made up for the
mystery mush #ThanksMichelleObama.
His photo of a soupy Spanish rice gone wrong and an
apple on a school lunch tray was retweeted more than 170
times.
Hunter, 17, is a senior at Richland Center High School in
Richland Center, Wisconsin. He said in an interview with
The Associated Press that his school lunches have gone
downhill over his four years in high school. Of the Spanish

Turner, Hunter Whitney)
rice, he said you couldnt feel the individual grains of rice.
It was just a solid mush.
Halana Turner, a junior at Fraser High School in Fraser,
Michigan, posted a photo of a mushy breakfast sandwich
Friday morning. She says she used to like the meals at her
school.
I dont blame my school for this because I know that
theyre just following the rules, she said.
To combat the critics, a handful of kids posted photos of
more appetizing lunches. Some people joked that the students are far from the first generation to complain about their
school lunches.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a Washington advocacy group that has lobbied for the healthier lunches,
got in on the game as well, tweeting pictures of colorful salad
bars and happy kids under the hashtag.
Even if the lunches were super unhealthy, there would
be kids who would complain, said CSPIs Margo Wootan.
The White House didnt have an immediate response,
but an Agriculture Department spokesman said most meals
arent as bad as the photos depict. USDA oversees the school
meals program.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP)


Activists, authorities and the
family of Michael Brown called
for calm Friday as a grand jury
drew closer to an announcement
in the Ferguson police shooting.
But it was unclear whether the
panel was still at work or when
it would render a decision.
Earlier in the day, a spokesman for St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch told
reporters that jurors were reviewing evidence as they weigh
whether to indict officer Darren
Wilson.
Five hours later, Ed Magee
declined to say whether the
panel was still meeting.
The time, date and place for
a news conference announcing
the decision has not been decided, Magee said.
Wilson, 28, reportedly told
the grand jury that he feared
for his life on Aug. 9 as Brown,
who was 6-foot-4 and nearly
300 pounds, came at him. Witnesses said Brown was trying to
surrender and had his hands up.
The shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old black man
by a white police officer led to
protests, some of which turned
violent. Demonstrations have
continued for more than three
months, though the number of
protesters has dwindled and violence has become uncommon.
There were signs of rising
tension.

Stymied? Republicans seek immigration response

House Speaker John Boehner


of Ohio responds to President
Barack
Obamas
intention
to spare millions of illegal
immigrants from being deported,
a use of executive powers
that is setting up a fight with
Republicans in Congress over
the limits of presidential powers,
Friday, Nov. 21, 2014, during a
news conference on Capitol Hill in
Washington. earlier that Obamas
decision to go it alone cemented
his legacy of lawlessness and
squandered what little credibility
he had left. (AP Photo/J. Scott
Applewhite)

WASHINGTON (AP) United


against President Barack Obama but
uncertain how to stop him, outraged
Republicans struggled for a response
on immigration Friday that would
check the president without veering
into talk of impeachment or a government shutdown. Their remedy was far
from clear.
Republicans weighed filing a lawsuit.
Or trying to block funding for Obamas
move. Or advancing immigration measures of their own. But the party was divided, and Obamas veto pen seemed to
give him the upper hand.
And so, less than three weeks removed from midterm elections where
they retook the Senate and amassed a
historic majority in the House, Republicans found themselves stymied by a
lame duck president whose unilateral
move to curb deportations for millions
left previously dispirited Democrats
cheering and the GOP with no obvious response.
Were working with our members, looking at the options that are
available to us, but I will say to you:

The House will, in fact, act, House


Speaker John Boehner declared at a
news conference the day after Obama
unveiled his landmark policy. Obama
announced he was extending deportation protections and a chance for work
permits to as many as 5 million immigrants now in the country illegally.
He also will make more business visas
available and reorder law enforcement
priorities to focus more squarely on
criminals for deportation.
In the days ahead the peoples
house will rise to this challenge said
Boehner at the Capitol. We will not
stand idle as the president undermines
the rule of law in our country and places lives at risk. Hes damaging the
presidency itself.
But Republicans acknowledged
they were at a disadvantage given that
any legislative solution they settled on
would be subject to a veto by Obama
that they could not likely overturn.
And party leaders were determined
to steer clear of a repeat just a year
after Congress tea party contingent
forced a politically damaging partial

government shutdown over Obamas


health care law. But that was the scenario posed by a push among conservatives to use must-pass spending legislation to stop the president.
The situation posed a major challenge to Boehner and Senate Minority
Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who
will take over as majority leader once
the new Congress convenes in January.
As Republicans headed home to their
districts Friday for a weeklong Thanksgiving break where they anticipated getting an earful from constituents, Obama
drew enthusiastic applause at a rally in
Las Vegas where he began promoting
his plans to the nation.
Lawmakers will return to Washington the first week of December and
aim for a clearer direction. Leaders are
casting about for a way to satisfy the
most conservative lawmakers without
overreacting and alienating Hispanic
and moderate voters who will be critical for the 2016 election. Republicans
will be defending their newfound congressional majorities then and aiming
for the White House.

The Battle Begins


With all of the shouts about amnesty, Constitutional crisis,
and separation of powers, you may have missed the other big
news that came out of Washington D.C. yesterday.
On Friday morning, just hours after President Obama appeared
on television to announce his new immigration policy, the U.S.
House of Representatives moved forward with a long-threatened
lawsuit to sue over the implementation of the Affordable Care Act,
otherwise known as Obamacare.
What? You had forgotten about that threatened litigation?
Back in July, the U.S. House voted to authorize moving forward with a lawsuit against the Obama administration, ostensibly
in argument against unlegislated changes to the ACA. The two
primary aspects being challenged by the lawsuit:
1) The administrations deferral of the health care coverage
mandate on employers, despite the January 1, 2014, date in the
law - In July of 2013, the administration deferred the mandatory
health care coverage requirement until 2015. Seven months later,
the administration again pushed back the deadline, this time until
2016 for businesses with between 50-99 employees.
2) The $175 billion in subsidies given to insurance companies
for participating in the ACA program - The lawsuit also accuses
the administration of unlawfully funneling funding from an account that was appropriated by Congress for another responsibility. A little more than $3 billion has already been paid out with the
balance being used over the next 10 years.
To be fair, the lawsuit does not name President Obama directly.
The suit was filed against the secretaries of the Health and Human
Services and Treasury Departments.
But make no mistake about the lawsuit and the possible ramifications from the decision: the case is all about President Obamas
use of what many believe to be powers not granted to his office by
the U.S. Constitution. For proof, you need look no farther than the
timing of the lawsuit:
- On November 4, the Democratic Party loses control of the
U.S. Senate, gives up more seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, and saw several governorships across the country also swing
to the Republican side.
- On November 7, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear
another case concerning the ACA. In this lawsuit, the plaintiffs
claim the ACA only makes provisions for subsidies to residents
in states that are operating their own health care exchange. The
federal government has paid out subsidies in all 50 states. If the
Justices decide the law explicitly states the subsidies can only be
paid in the 13 states and Washington D.C. that have their own exchanges, then the prices of health care will skyrocket, making insurance too expensive for almost all of the low-to-middle income
people it was intended to help. Participation would plummet and
the ACA system would be bankrupt.
- On November 20, the President announces sweeping changes
to immigration policy, including what some people were calling
amnesty to more than five million illegal aliens in the U.S.
- On November 21, the lawsuit concerning the ACA implementation is filed.
We find several points on this timeline fascinating. If we completely ignore the subjects of the respective lawsuits - the ACA and
eventually, immigration - and only concentrate on the underlying
accusations, these actions come down to a struggle within the U.S.
Constitutional system for the definition of separation of powers.
Or more specifically, is President Obama overstepping the Constitutional authority of his office when he changes laws without the
inclusion of the legislative branch?
We would argue he has. But we would also argue this struggle
has been going on since the founding of the country. Power between the three branches of government has ebbed and flowed
constantly. In the 1970s, the legislative branch was clearly in control. In the 1940s, FDR wielded as much power or more power as
any President, even going so far as to attempt to break control of
the Supreme Court.
So these latest machinations by President Obama are not new
tactics. The only question is how far he will take the administrative branch into battle with the legislative. And with the recent
willingness of the Supreme Court to accept cases out of the normal schedule, he may be tackling the judicial branch at the same
time.

Life still isnt always fair


Things aint the same as
they used to be. I hope youve
figured that out by now. The
good ol days of 1962 are gone
forever. I mention that every
time people start complaining
that the fair isnt the same any
more, or when gas prices rise
over another dollar per gallon at
the pump.
A couple of years ago, I had
to go over the speech about why
it is easier to learn to use the Internet instead of buying a new
encyclopedia every few years.
Lets just say that most things
that have changed over the
years have had a good reason
for the change.
This past week, I had a
phone message when I got to
my desk from someone who
wasnt happy that a machine
answered the phone and that
she couldnt talk to a real person
to ask a question. I dont blame
her. When I called her back, it
took less than two minutes for
me to answer her question.
It would have been much
quicker if I had spent the night
at my desk, waking every so
often to answer the phone. Of
course, I can get pretty selfish
and I do demand some sleepgathering at home in my bed
several times per week. Besides, I work odd hours, so I am

at my desk at certain selected


hours each weekday and rarely
on Sundays.
On top of that, we dont keep
someone in our offices chained
to the telephone switchboard
these days. So sometimes we
dont have operators standing
by to answer your call. The rest
of a workers duties dont always stop just because you are
calling. Back in the old days, if
the office was open there would
be a secretary or receptionist
on duty to answer the phones.
That was their job! Answer the
phone!
In todays day and age, few
businesses can afford to hire
someone to simply answer the
phone. It costs too much to employ a phone-answerer. Besides
paying additional salary to be
sure the phone doesnt ring
more than twice, the government wants a business to pay
mountains of tax money to have
a real person on staff.
So instead of letting the
phone ring off the hook, the
majority of businesses with
more than one phone line have
gone to an automated system.
You know what it sounds like.
Hello, and thank you for calling Acme Industries. Your call
IS important to us, so when you
hear the beep, push the right ex-

tension number to leave a message. Or listen to this hour-long


list of people and choose one
who may have fallen asleep and
needs to look alive.
See, you know how it goes.
I dont especially like them
either, but they are much better than waiting for one of the
employees who have other responsibilities that dont involve
a telephone to put everything
down so he can answer my
question. That might take an
additional hour of listening to
the ringing noise on the other
end of the line.
Its not drop-everythingand-take-care-of-the-customer
service, but it keeps additional
business costs down and keeps
track of messages until the person I need to talk to returns my
call. Not like it used to be, but it
does work if you just do your
part.
It may not seem fair to you
when you want your phone call
answered right now, but thats
the way society works. Before
you complain, take a look at
your calendar and see if the
year begins with 19. Hint: it
doesnt.
Life wasnt always fair back
in the day when the phone rang,
either. Years ago, I went into the
hardware store with a question.

My
Two
CenTs
By
Ed Gebert

A customer was already talking


with the lone clerk on duty, so
I stood in line and waited. And
waited.
The customer thanked the
clerk, making me think it would
soon be my turn, but then he
thought of another question and
asked. I continued to wait. Then
the other customer asked the
clerk how his Aunt Ruth was
feeling and a new five-minute
conversation
commenced.
Eventually the health update
was complete and the customer
started walking out the door.
It was finally my turn! As I
began to ask my question, the
telephone rang. The clerk, who
was the only person working in
the store at that point, excused
himself and went to answer
the ringing, leaving me, again,
standing in line. This time I was
waiting behind someone who
checked with the store AFTER
I had, but the caller got preferential treatment.

Family tops my Thanksgiving list


OK, so Im ready to be
ready for Thanksgiving.
Ive started making my lists
and my lists have lists. I dont
know why I make lists. I think
its genetic. My mother is a
list-maker. It doesnt change
what I have to do. Actually,
writing it all down sometimes
makes it a little more scary
and I think Ill never be able
to get everything done.
As always, the top item on
my master list is to enjoy my
family and the time we have
to all be together. Its been a
long time since everyone was
together.
I think too often we get
caught up in the everyday
hoopla and forget to stop and
smell the roses, so to speak.
Were too busy to go to lunch,
too busy to drop by for a casual chat. Family and friends
often fall to the wayside in this
hectic world.

On the
Other
hand
By Nancy
Spencer

I, too, have many things for


which I am thankful. Family
is number one on my list. My
mother and I share a close relationship as friends, as well
as mother and daughter. We
have been through a lot together and it has given us a
strong bond.
My child is doing wonderful things personally and
professionally and boy have
we every come a long way together over the last 10 years.
My siblings, while they

have their own lives, still stay


in touch. Becky and I have that
sister thing going on, as well
as some common interests.
We did some uber bonding on
my visit to Georgia and Im
having a hard time keeping up
with their jet-setting lifestyle.
Steve and I have always been
close.
I am also thankful for my
job and my co-workers. I
think we have all had that job
that made us want to roll back
over and fall back asleep after
the alarm goes off. I enjoy my
job and work with some great
people. In many countries, I
would not be able to do what I
do or write anything, let alone
this column. I am also thankful I dont live in one of those
countries.
For someone who doesnt
try very hard, I also enjoy
relatively good health. That is
also something I am thankful

for.
The list could go on and on
and so could I but I wont.
On Thursday, while the
turkey is being carved and the
potatoes mashed, think about
all the good things and people
in your life and say a little
thank you. Think about all the
people who have touched your
life and how you are better for
it and hopefully, so are they.
Think about all the ways you
are blessed, from your family
to your job to your friends.
Count your blessings; perhaps literally. Ive been thinking about jotting down all the
good things that happen in the
next year and putting them in
a jar or something and next
year, Ill pull them all out
and read them. I think it will
be enlightening and show me
how fortunate I really am. Im
inviting everyone to try it as
well.

It took an extra five minutes for me to get my question answered because I had to wait in line behind someone who didnt
even bother to come to the store, but just picked up the phone.
Why did he get preferential treatment? Because a phone caller
wouldnt wait. Someone who drove to the store to stand in line
would. It wasnt a fair system, but it probably happened to you, too.
So remember this week as you eat Thanksgiving dinner or go
shopping or ask a question, sometimes it wasnt any better in the
good old days and sometimes it was actually lousy in the good
old days. Paste a smile on your kisser and understand that its not

Wert County, be a part of what

The county villages At
the first ED Advisory Group
meeting I attended, there
was no representation from
the villages. I asked different village reps why and they
said that the group never had
anything to offer them. The
county is developing grantwriting coordination that
brings our towns together as
a team to strengthen grant
applications. We hope to rebuild infrastructure and get
these towns back to being
themselves. Theyre back in
the game, so to speak.
The Regional Planning
Committee The first of
these meetings I attended,
one of the members quit in
frustration because nothing of substance was ever
discussed. Those gatherings
now take on issues that affect the county like windmills and the tearing down
of worn-out buildings. Its
also now an opportunity for
township government to get
involved in ED.
The Business Development Corporation (BDC)
this group was the force
behind both Vision Park and
Industrial Park in the past,
but had not taken action in
a few years before some of
their members came to object
to our discussing a change in
ED. Too strenuously object, I
might add.
That groups frustration
with us apparently rattled
them back to life. They now
have an initiative to raise
two million dollars for what
they call an Enterprise Fund
to aid local ED efforts. Even
the aforementioned OSU
Advisory Executive Board,
which now kind of directs
Van Wert Citys ED efforts,
took some of our criticism to
heart and appointed to itself
some active members of the
business community.
People still ask when the
county and city are going to
get back together. First, let
me point out that there are
many cities that have their
own ED offices. Every county in the state of Ohio has an
ED office because the state
sets it up that way. Cities are
free to organize their own efforts within that framework
as Delphos is now doing.
There is a root philosophical difference between our efforts and what the city of Van
Wert wants to do. The city
believes that the connection
with Columbus through Ohio
State is worth giving away local control of ED efforts. We
believe that the regional approach Columbus endorses
has not benefited our county
in the past and will not in the
future. Allowing local input
has proved fruitful.
Personally, Ive come
to the belief that, with two
separate offices wanting to
do entirely different things,
perhaps we can work both

When Advanced Biological Medical announced its


$14 million Van Wert expansion last month, you may have
caught this quote: I have to
give credit to local government, CEO Dan Custiss said.
Ive never seen anything happen this fast. He was thanking both the city ED for its
initial involvement and the
county ED for finding some
additional funding at the end
and for helping in the tax
abatement process.
It may have taken some
unpleasantness, but, even in
hindsight, there was no way
to avoid that and still create
what is now taking place.
With the shaking and rattling in the rearview mirror,
its time to roll, and there
is more thought and energy
currently involved in that
than we had thought possible
when we started down this
path.

Nuremberg war trials offer closure to Nazi victims and survivors

Rudolf Hess
Hermann Goering
Martin Bormann
Ernst Kaltenbrunner
The names read like a Whos
Who list of the most despised men
in Germany after World War II.
Twenty-four high-ranking German
officials crossing the spectrum from
political, military, and economic
leadership in the Nazi party were
placed on trial in Nuremberg, Germany, in front of the International
Military Tribunal after the end of
World War II.
Known as the Trial of Major War
Criminals, one judge from each of
the major Allied countries Great
Britain, United States, France and
the Soviet Union presided over
the proceedings. Despite the need
for justice, even the notion of the
trial held some controversy after
some of the atrocities committed
by the Germans during the war
became public. Winston Churchill
for quite a while advocated battlefield executions without hearings.
Josef Stalin thought a number of
German staff officers a number
somewhere between 50,000 and
100,000 - should be executed as
a righteous punishment to the defeated army.
Even the location of the trial was
a source of argument. Stalin wanted
the proceedings held in Berlin. But
the United States and other officials
wanted it held in Nuremberg for logistics reasons because the huge

tantly, Nuremberg offered a symbolic message because the city had


been the birthplace of the Nazi party
and many of the Allies found justice
in the fact the political movement
would also die there as part of the
trial.
A minimum of five languages
could be spoken in the courtroom on
any given day so the trial organizers
had to recruit translators who spoke
continuously into microphone-fed
headsets.
Even after all the horrors the
Nazis had committed on dissidents, enemies, and Jews before
and during the war, there were
some who decried the Nuremberg
Trials as a sham. The Chief Justice
of the United States, Harlan Stone,
called the proceedings a fraud, referring to them openly as a lynching.
Their objections came from the
court not following U.S. criminal
law. Many judges who were critical
complained the Nuremberg judges
had been chosen by the victors of
the war with no possible appeal by
the defendants. In fact, the Russian
judge had been a leader during Stalins show trials and purgings a decade earlier.
But the vast majority of those
involved felt the trials served two
purposes. First, they allowed clo-

Open Nuernberg War Criminal Trials


Rudolf Hess Among 20 Nazi
Defendants; Excuse Ill SS Chief
NUERNBERG, Nov. 20 (AP)
A score of glum, oddly-garbed
henchmen of Adolf Hitler went
on trial for their lives today before
the international war crimes tribunal and heard the reading of the
first two counts of the indictment
against them a recital of plunder
and horror.
Rudolf Hess, an almost impish grin playing about his sunken
mouth, was lined up in the dock
with the Nazi defendants 20 in
all. The 21st, Martin Bormann,
Hitlers deputy, is being tried in absentia.
What disposition the tribunal
would make of the reports of alienists on Hess mental condition had
yet to be announced.
British Lord Justice Geoffrey
Lawrence, presiding, announced
the trial would continue without the
presence of Ernest Kaitenbrunner,
former Nazi security police chief,
sure for the millions of people who
had been victimized by the Nazis
during Hitlers rule by allowing the
leaders to be publicly sentenced.
Second, unlike Churchills belief
they should be summarily shot
when found alive, the trials were
the first step toward extending
some fairness toward those captured during wartime. Even some

who has suffered a cranial hemmorrhage.


The defense attorneys listened
intently to every word.
But from the paunchy prima
donna of Nazism, Hermann Goering, to the quiet propaganda ministrys handyman, Hans Fritzsche,
the defendants listened with varying emotions as lurid deeds of the
Third Reich were reconstructed in
English.
Lord Lawrence told the defendants Britain, the United States, the
Soviet Union and France had been
entrusted with the punishment of
war criminals, adding: This trial
which is about to begin is unique in
the history of jurisprudence and in
importance to people all over the
world.
Sidney S. Alderman, assistant to
Chief U.S. Prosecutor Justice Robert H. Jackson, read a condensed
version of the indictment, during

which Hess, Ribbentrop, Keitel,


and Rosenberg listened without using the translators earphones provided for each defendant.
Grand Admiral Erich Raeder
and Walther Funk, former Reichsbank president, used the American
translating device.
Goering nodded non-committallly when Prosecutor Alderman
referred to his overriding control
of the German economy in preparation for armed aggression after
1936.
The prosecution tables were
crowded. Justice Jackson sat at the
head of the United States delegation.
At Aldermans mention of AntiJewish fulminations during the prewar period by Alred Rosenberg,
that defendant hurriedly replaced
his earphones. Julius Streicher, No.
1 Nazi Jew-baiter, sat bolt upright
when he was named.
Goering nodded with emphasis
when the prosecutor recalled his
announcement of 10 years ago that
Germany was building a military
air force.

other war trials thought the whole
process necessary for the world to
be able to move on and find an end
to the suffering.
Of the 24 Germans who were
brought to trial in Nuremberg, 12
were sentenced to death, seven received prison sentences ranging
from 10 years to life in prison, and

three were acquitted. Of the remaining two, one was found too mentally
unbalanced to stand trial and the
other committed suicide before the
proceedings began.
Here now is a reprint of the November 20, 1945, Van Wert TimesBulletin article detailing the beginning of the war trials of captured
Nazis in Nuremberg.

Woman is burned as auto catches fire


A Mrs. Wise, of middle age, who lives
south of Van Wert, received burns on her
leg when fire broke out in an automobile
here last night about 9:30 while gasoline
was being put in the tank under a front
seat of the machine.
The flames spread instantly over the
interior of the car, a two door sedan, and
Mrs. Wise is said to have escaped from
it through a wall of fire at the right door.
The accident occurred on Main Street in
front of Smiths garage. Russel Smith was
serving the car with gasoline and Mr. Wise,
husband, was holding the gas hose in the
tank when the flames burst out. Herbert Sahie, an employee, brought fire extinguish-

ers from the garage, and the flames were


put out with two chemical outfits. The fire
department was not called.
The lights were reported turned off
and the motor not running when the fire
broke out.

Police seek wounded man on liquor
charge
The Lima Star says: James Lechleitner, No. 1 Rowlands Row, who is believed to have been seriously wounded
by police at 2 a.m. yesterday was still at
large last night.
He was being sought be police for an
alleged liquor law violation, when a shot
was fired into his brothers car on the
public square early yesterday.
Lechleitner is believed to have been
wounded by Officer Hargrove, who had
been placed as a look-out for the alleged
rum runner in the downtown section of
the city.
Shortly before the shooting occurred, police received information that
Lechleitner was leaving Park Avenue and
Wayne Street with a quantity of liquor,
Chief Willis Kipker said.
Later, Officer Basil, night patrolman,
saw a man believed to be Lecheitner and
a negro come from the Kirwan Hotel and
called the police station for officers to
meet him and Market and Union Streets.
In the meantime the pair drove east on

THOSE WERE THE DAYS

Years Ago

35 Years Ago
This week in 1979, ten
more hostages were freed
from the American Embassy
in Tehran after being held for
16 days. Iranian students had
captured the facility more
than two weeks earlier and
were demanding the return
of the former shah to face
charges. Officials said the remaining 53 hostages remained
in danger and there was no indication when they would be
released.
Members of Phi Delta Sorority met in the home of Jan
Odenweller who hosted a
Thanksgiving party. She was
assisted by Marty Clark and
Marcia Birkemeier. During
the business meeting, plans
were finalized for the annual
Charity Ball to be held Dec.
15 at the Delphos Training
Center. Tickets were available
by contacting Marty Clark,
Sue Clark, Phud Calvelage or
Jean Ricker.
The construction at the
intersection of Ervin Road
and South Washington Street
continued. The area was being widened to the southwest

after an engineering mistake


made the intersection too
narrow when it was built.
Traffic flow was expected to
dramatically improve after
the changes.
60 Years Ago
This week in 1954, U.S.
Senators continued to disagree over whether or not
there was enough support to
censure Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis). The debate over
possible censure was delayed
after McCarthy was forced to
miss sessions due to a chronic
elbow injury. The Senate instead voted to recess until
Nov. 29 before restarting the
discussion over McCarthys
smear tactics against government officials and civilians.
Hardcourt activities, the
1954-55 style, were slated to
get underway in Delphos on

between two of the nations
top cage squads. The basketball attraction in the Jefferson
school gymnasium featured

Wizards hand Cavaliers third consecutive defeat, 91-78


BY JOSEPH WHITE
AP Sports Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) John Wall took
over in the third quarter Friday night and finished 28 points, seven assists and six rebounds,
and the hustling Washington Wizards clamped
down for a 91-78 win over LeBron James and
the mostly flatfooted Cleveland Cavaliers, who
lost their third straight to fall back below .500.
Resuming a rivalry that peaked last decade
when the Wizards and James Cavaliers met
three consecutive years in the playoffs it
was so intense that both Jay-Z and Soulja Boy
got involved the Wizards eagerly pounced
on their old nemesis. They grabbed a majority of the 50-50 rebounds and capitalized on
the defensive woes that have led to Clevelands
surprisingly mediocre start.
James scored 22 points on 8-for-21 shooting, but Cleveland committed 19 turnovers,
shot 36 percent and scored a season-low in
points. James was never below .500 more than
10 games into a season during his four seasons
with the Miami Heat, but he and the Cavaliers
are now 5-6.
Cleveland was held without a field goal in
the final 9:16.
Kevin Seraphin made hook after hook to
score all 12 of his points in the second quarter and finished with six rebounds and three
blocks for the Wizards, who have won four of
five.
There was no big-time rapper performing
at this game unless that counts James rapping with headphones on at his locker before
the game but NBA Commissioner Adam

Silver and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman


Martin Dempsey were among the see-and-beseen crowd at the Wizards first sellout of the
season.
Wall scored 17 points in the third quarter,
responding after the Wizards hit a rare lull.
Washington had a 55-42 halftime lead shrunk
to 60-53, but the 2010 No. 1 overall draft pick
then began to assert himself at both ends.
Wall scored six points in a row, including a
stop-and-pop jumper after he dribbled downcourt following one of his rebounds, to push
the lead to 16 points. He later hustled to intercept a long fast-break pass intended for James,
a steal that eventually lead to two free throws
for Wall and another 16-point lead.
James grew visibly frustrated in the fourth.
He stayed behind at the Wizards end before
heading downcourt after failing to grab a rebound with about 6 1/2 minutes left, essentially giving Washington a 5-on-4 possession.
TIP-INS
Cavaliers: Kyrie Irving went 0 for 6 from
3-point range, and the team went 6 for 27.
Kevin Love scored a season-low eight points.
Wizards: Cleveland got the better of Washington in all three of their first-round series
meetings from 2006-08. Soulja Boy performed
live at Game 3 in the 2008 series. On Friday,
Washington played one of his songs during a
fourth-quarter timeout. Coach Randy Wittman got a technical in the third quarter for
arguing a charging call on Nene.
UP NEXT
Cavaliers: Host Toronto on Saturday.
Wizards: At Milwaukee on Saturday.

Buckeyes take aim at


IUs Tevin Coleman
BY RUSTY MILLER
AP Sports Writer
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The defensive players for
No. 7 Ohio State are setting a goal which goes far beyond
just winning a game.
The Buckeyes also want to prove a point.
Tevin Coleman, the nations No. 2 rusher, is averaging
168 rushing yards per game and an astounding 7.84 yards
per carry this season for Indiana (3-7, 0-6 Big Ten) heading
into Saturdays game against the Buckeyes (9-1, 6-0, No. 6
CFP).
A week after Coleman piled up 307 rushing yards in a
loss to Rutgers, Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa says his
side of the ball plans on being stingy.
Were trying to hold him under 100 yards, said Bosa,
who leads the Big Ten with 17 tackles for a loss and 11.5
sacks. Thats our goal for the week as a defense, which is
not going to be easy, of course. But we feel if we do that, then
well have a good chance of winning.
The Buckeyes have grown accustomed to winning. Since
stumbling 35-21 to Virginia Tech in the second game, they
have spun off eight straight wins. From out of nowhere,
theyre suddenly valid contenders to make the national playoffs.
The Hoosiers realize that as Coleman goes, so go their
hopes of pulling an upset.
If they were to stun the Buckeyes, it would brighten a lost
season.
Weve played some teams very, very well, but playing a
really good team on the road and taking that next step is going to be a challenge, Wilson said.
Here are some things to watch:
BROKEN RECORDS: Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett, a late
stand-in for Braxton Miller when he was lost for the season
with a shoulder injury, continues to have a historic season.
The freshman needs just two more TD passes to break
Troy Smiths record of 30 set when he won the Heisman in
2006.
Not so long ago a kid just hoping to get on the field, hes
now among the handful of top Heisman favorites.
Its kind of crazy to think about that, being that thats really never on my mind, Barrett said. Im grateful that Im
on that list. But the objective every week is to go out there
and win games.
GOING STREAKING: Everywhere you look in this
matchup, there are streaks.
The Buckeyes have won the last 18 meetings with the
Hoosiers, dating to Indianas back-to-back wins in 1987-88.
Indiana has lost its last five games since an Oct. 4 win
over North Texas.
And Ohio State is looking to extend its conference record
by winning a 23rd consecutive regular-season Big Ten game.
The Buckeyes can also clinch their second consecutive
trip to the Big Ten title game with a victory.

through Michigan defenders in the third quarter
of an NCAA college football game in Ann Arbor,
Mich., Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014. Michigan won 3410. (AP Photo/Tony Ding)
FIGHTING THE DROPS: A week ago, Ohio State did
just about everything it needed to against Minnesota in a 3124 win except hang onto the ball.
Kick returner and H-back Jalin Marshall coughed up the
ball twice but hell be back out there again.
Ill hear people say, If he fumbles he wont play again
for another six games, coach Urban Meyer said. But its
like if a guy jumps offsides. I want a real aggressive team
thats not worried about making mistakes.
HOMECOMING: Fifteen Hoosiers are Ohio natives, including some of their top players.
Theyll step before a crowd in excess of 100,000, with
projected temperatures in the low to mid 40s and with a 30
percent chance of freezing rain.
LOOKING AHEAD: One of the few things that could
derail the Buckeyes is if they let their minds wander instead
of dealing with the game at hand.
They have plenty of distractions. They close out the regular season a week from now in their annual grudge match
with archrival Michigan. Then theres all the talk about being in the race for one of those four precious playoff spots.
Theres six or seven teams that are still in it, still have
a legitimate shot of making that top four, tight end Jeff
Heuerman said. Its what you worked all offseason for, and
youre right in the heat of it right now. So its special.

Falcons back at home; Josh Gordon returns for Cleveland


BY PAUL NEWBERRY
AP Sports Writer
ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Falcons are
thrilled to be playing at home.
Josh Gordon is excited to be playing anywhere.
Somehow tied for first in their division despite
a losing record, the Falcons will be back at the
Georgia Dome for the first time in six weeks when
they host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Gordon, who led the league with 1,646 yards
receiving a year ago, is making his season debut
for the Browns after serving a 10-game suspension for violating the NFLs drug policy.
Im very ready, Gordon said. I had a long
time to get ready for it.
The Falcons (4-6) climbed to the top of the
anemic NFC South with two straight wins. They

Steven Jackson said. We dont want to get ahead
of ourselves.
The NFC South is a laughingstock around the
rest of the league, but the Falcons are making no
apologies for being in position to make the playoffs despite being 0-6 against teams outside their
division.
Compare that with the Browns (6-4), who have
a better record but two teams ahead of them in the
tightly bunched AFC North.
If the playoffs began today, the Falcons would
be in.
The Browns would be out.
It doesnt matter, Atlanta quarterback Matt
Ryan said. Weve got everything in front of us.
Were not worried about what people say.
Gordon may be rusty, but he figures to play a
huge role right away. Just look at what happened
last season, when he returned from a two-game
suspension and was targeted 19 times by quarterback Brian Hoyer.
In practice this week, Hoyer was locked in on
his favorite receiver.

Bengals Dalton looks for first victory against Texans


BY KRISTIE RIEKEN
AP Sports Writer
HOUSTON (AP) Andy Dalton doesnt
have many good memories of playing in his
hometown since being drafted in 2011.
The Cincinnati quarterback is 0-3 against
the Texans, including two playoff losses in
Houston. Its something that will certainly be
on his mind when he and the Bengals meet the
Texans on Sunday.
Being ousted from the postseason twice by
Houston in his short career adds extra motivation this week.
Yeah, it is, he said. Obviously when you
go home, you want to play well. You want to
get a win and all that kind of stuff. Losing in
the playoffs a couple times there, it still does
sit with you, so were going to come out and
do whatever we can to get a win.
The first playoff defeat came in a 31-10 win
by Houston when he was a rookie in 2011. Dalton threw three interceptions in that game, including one that was returned by J.J. Watt 29
yards for a touchdown.
What hes good at, hes going up and batting balls down, Dalton said of the play. He
made a good play.
The play helped Houston to its first playoff
win in franchise history and was a breakout
moment for Watt, who was also a rookie. Watt
has since established himself as one of the best
defensive players in the league and won Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2012.
Obviously that is kind of when whatever
this is started, Watt said.

which include two touchdown receptions, a


fumble return for a touchdown and an interception return for a touchdown this season,
that one still means a lot to him.
That was one of the best moments of my
whole life and it was pretty cool to feel the energy of the city and the stadium, and also just to
be a part of this franchises history, Watt said.
Dalton and the Bengals are trying not to get
too caught up in the past and are instead looking to build off perhaps their best performance
of the season in a 27-10 win over New Orleans
last week.
He had a simple answer for how Cincinnati
can do that.
Keep playing like we did last weekend and
well be just fine, Dalton said.
Here are some things to know about the
Bengals-Texans game:
GREEN IS BACK: One of the lasting images
from the Bengals 19-13 loss at Reliant Stadium
in the 2012 playoffs was Dalton overthrowing
an open A.J. Green in the end zone in the closing minutes. Green is having a subpar season
because of an injured big right toe that sidelined
him for three games and limited him in several
others. He was back to form on Sunday with six
receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown.
CUSHING FEELING BETTER: Houston
linebacker Brian Cushing had his best game
of the season against the Browns after missing
the previous two games with pain and swelling
in his surgically repaired left knee. He forced a
fumble, have five tackles and two quarterback
hits in the win.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)


Alex Khokhlachev scored
the winner in the seventh
round of a shootout in his second NHL game, leading the
Boston Bruins over the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 Friday night.
Khokhlachev was called
up from American Hockey
League Providence on Thursday to add insurance up the
middle for the Bruins. His
forehand goal came after Niklas Svedberg stopped all seven
Columbus shooters, including
the final one, Matt Calvert.
The Bruins got three goals
in the third period to overcome a 2-0 deficit, then hung
on after Columbus pulled even
on Jack Johnsons goal with
7:13 left in regulation.

Ryan Johansen had a goal
and two assists, Nick Foligno scored and had an assist
and Sergei Bobrovsky had 38
saves for the Blue Jackets.
Bobrovsky had stopped the
Bruins first 23 shots, some
with stellar plays. But shortly
after making three saves on a
Boston power play, he surrendered a softie early in the third
period.
Seidenberg was two strides
over the center line when he
fired the puck on net measured at 78 feet and it somehow slid between Bobrovskys
leg pads to make it 2-1.
The Bruins then pulled
even at the 9:33 mark. Patrice
Bergeron settled a bouncing
puck and passed to Bartkowski, whose hard shot from the
right point was redirected by
Fraser for the tying goal.

Reduce debt, the systematic way


As the holidays approach,
you may be planning a gift list
for those special people in your
life. You may also be worrying
about adding to your already
sizeable credit card balances.
In America today, carrying
some debt is unavoidable, and
even desirable, for most households. But between mortgages,
car payments and credit cards,
many Americans find themselves over their heads unable to dig out from under a
debt burden that consumes an
ever-growing portion of their
resources.
The median U.S. household
owes $3,000 in credit card
debt.1 Credit card companies
have made running up that
balance deceptively easy. But
whats lost when you are racking up big credit card balances
is the realization that paying off
your debt can be costly, in terms
of its impact on your cash flow
as well as your overall financial
health.
Assessing Your Debt
How much debt is too much?
The figure varies from person to
person, but in general, experts
agree that your debt-to-income
ratio should be no more than 43
percent.1 A debt-to-income ratio

is commonly used by lenders to


assess an individuals ability to
repay the money he or she has
borrowed.
To calculate your debt-toincome ratio, add up all your
monthly debt payments (including mortgage, car and
other non-housing debts) and
divide that sum by your gross
monthly income i.e., income
before taxes and other deductions are taken out. Mortgage
lenders, in particular, use the
43 percent debt-to-income ratio
as a benchmark to determine
whether or not an individual is a
good candidate for a mortgage.1
Other signs that you may
be carrying too much debt include not knowing how much
you owe, constantly paying the
minimum balance due on credit
cards (or worse, being unable to
make the minimum payments),
and borrowing from one lender
to pay another.
If you find that you are overextended, dont panic. There
are a number of steps you can
follow to eliminate that debt
and get yourself back on track.
Working your way out of debt
will, of course, require you to
adjust your spending habits and
perhaps be more judicious in

your spending.
Begin With a Budget
The first step in eliminating debt is to figure out where
your money goes. This will
allow you to see where your
debt is coming from and, perhaps, help you to free up some
cash to put toward lowering
that debt.
Track your expenses for
one month by writing down
what you spend. At the end of
the month, total up your expenses and break them down
into two categories: Essential, including fixed expenses
such as mortgage/rent, food
and utilities, and Nonessential, including entertainment
and dining out. Analyze your
expenses to see where your
spending can be reduced. Perhaps you can cut back on food
expenses by bringing lunch
to work instead of eating out
each day. You might be able
to reduce commuting costs
by taking public transportation instead of parking your
car at a pricey downtown garage. Even utility costs can be
reduced by turning lights off,
making fewer long-distance
calls or turning the thermostat
down a few degrees in winter.

the introductory period ends.


You can find lists of low-rate
cards online from sites such as
CardTrak and Bankrate.
If you can only find a card
with a low introductory rate,
maximize the value of that
low-interest period. By paying
off your balance aggressively,
you will reduce the balance
more quickly than you will
when the rate goes up.
You can also contact your
current credit card companies
to inquire about consolidation
and lower rates. Competition
in the industry is fierce, and
many companies are willing
to lower their rates to keep
their customers. Even a percentage point or two can make
a difference with a sizable balance.
Borrow only for the long
term. The best use of debt is
to finance things that will gain
in value, such as a home, an
education, or big-ticket necessities, like a washing machine
or a computer that will still be
around when the debt is paid
off. Avoid using your credit
card for concert tickets, vacation expenses or meals out. By
the time the balance is gone,
you will have paid far more

than the cost of these items
and have nothing but memories to show for it.
By analyzing your spending, controlling expenses and
establishing a plan, you can
reduce and perhaps eliminate your debt, leaving you
with more money to save today and a better outlook for
your financial future.

Three Steps to Reduce Debt


Once you have a handle on
your budget, you can begin to
attack existing debt with the
following steps.
Pay off high-rate debt first.
The higher your interest rate,
the more you wind up paying.
Begin with your highest-rate
credit cards and eliminate
the balance as aggressively as
possible. For example, assume
you have two separate $2,000
balances, one charging 20 percent interest, the other 8 percent, on which you can pay a
total of 6 percent per month. If
you were to pay 4 percent per
month on the higher-rate card
and 2 percent on the lowerrate card (which is typically
the minimum monthly payment), you would save $961
in interest and 18 months of
payments over allocating 3
percent to each balance.2
Transfer high-rate debt
to lower-rate cards. Consolidating credit card debts to a
single, lower-rate card saves
in interest costs over the life
of the loan. Comparison shop
for the best rates, and beware
of teaser rates that start low,
say, at 6 percent, then jump
to much higher rates after

Jobs
(From page 1)
Grothouse said clients are looking to fill
general labor, welder, and CNC (computer numerically controlled) operator positions. Higher end jobs in the manufacturing sector including engineers and maintenance technicians are
in high demand, as well as skilled positions.
Candidates that have tech school certifications
are also in demand.
The rate at which Baby Boomers are retiring is creating an influx of unfilled jobs,
Grothouse said. Another variable is there
are a lot of companies working more than 40hour work weeks and people want that worklife balance.
She said when employees leave or decline
taking those types of positions, companies are
left struggling to find employees and utilize
temporary agencies to fill in the gaps.
Grothouse said recruitment trends how
companies find employees are the use of re-

four-year college. Such a graduation also can give students


an advantage getting into the
college of their choice.
Much of the discussion on
Friday focused on the students
often choosing a degree from
a two-year school rather than
study for a four-year degree.

of the flu also tend to come


on abruptly. Usually, complications from colds are
relatively minor, but a severe
case of flu can lead to a lifethreatening illness such as
pneumonia.
More than 100 types of
cold viruses are known and
new strains of flu evolve every few years. Since both
diseases are viral, antibiotics
cannot conquer cold or flu.
The single best way to
prevent seasonal flu is to
get vaccinated each year but
good health habits like covering a cough and washing
hands often can help stop the
spread of germs and prevent
respiratory illnesses like the
flu.
While
everyone
six
months and older should get
a flu vaccine this season with
rare exception, its especially
important for some people to
get vaccinated.
Those people include the
following:
Those who are at high
risk of developing serious
complications (like pneumonia) if they get sick with the
flu.
Those who have certain medical conditions including asthma, diabetes and
chronic lung disease.
Pregnant women.
Those younger than
five years (and especially
those younger than two), and
people 65 years and older.
People who live with
or care for others who are at
high risk of developing serious complications (see list
above).
Household contacts
and caregivers of people with

certain medical conditions


including asthma, diabetes,
and chronic lung disease.
Household contacts
and caregivers of infants
younger than six months-old.
Health care personnel.
Here are some ways to
prevent getting the flu:
Avoid close contact
with people who are sick.
When you are sick, keep
your distance from others
to protect them from getting
sick too.
If possible, stay home
from work, school and errands when sick. It will help
prevent others from catching
the illness.
Cover the mouth and
nose with a tissue when
coughing or sneezing.
Washing hands often will help protect from
germs. If soap and water are
not available, use an alcoholbased hand rub.
Germs are often spread
when a person touches something that is contaminated
with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or
mouth.
Clean and disinfect
frequently touched surfaces
at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill.
Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your
stress, drink plenty of fluids
and eat nutritious food.
The vaccine is recommended for everyone six
months of age and older.
Medicare/Medicaid and various health insurances are
accepted. Bring insurance
cards to the appointment.

Pillings not thrilling


on sheets
Dear Heloise: Is there any
way to keep microfiber sheets
from pilling? No matter what
brand I buy, those annoying little
pill bumps start forming after a
few months. Karen, via email
Its probably not the brand, as
you have found out; its the way
they are manufactured or how you
are washing them. First, wash using the delicate cycle so there is a
minimum amount of agitation. Its
really the rubbing against other
materials that causes the little fibers to pill, or cause bumps. The
same for putting them in the dryer.
So do try to wash and dry them
alone, with nothing else that may
have an abrasive action. And hang
them to dry, if you can. Heloise
PET PAL
Dear Readers: Bob Biron
of Manchester, N.H., sent in a
photo of his adopted dog, Buddy,
sitting next to the fireplace. Bob
says that Buddy isnt concerned
about a long, cold winter: Ill
just hang out by the pellet stove
like last winter. Heloise
PLUG-IN DOORBELL
Dear Heloise: Recently, my
aged father was very ill. While
my brother and his wife live the
house, their sleeping quarters
and workspace are downstairs
from where my parents were.
We worried that my mother
might need them quickly and
couldnt get to the door to call
them very easily. I thought of
our inexpensive plug-in doorbell.
We attached the button to something that Mom could take with
her into several rooms. It works
like a charm, even from the floor
above.
Even though my dad passed
away, they bought one so that
Mom can summon them if she
needs to. Dawn O., via email
Dawn, my heart sends you

DEAR ABBY: Im 13 and Im afraid


I may have OCD. I want to find out, but
whats standing in my way is that sometimes my parents think I make stuff up to
get attention. Im afraid to tell them, but
I know if I do, it will answer my question. Can you
give me some advice?
ANONYMOUS IN OHIO
DEAR ANONYMOUS:
Be brave and talk to your
parents about your fears.
They are your best friends,
and you should be able to
talk to them about anything
particularly anything
that bothers you. However,
before you do, make a list of the behaviors
that cause you to think you may have OCD,
and when you approach them, read them
whats on it. That way, if you become nervous, you wont forget anything.
** ** **
DEAR ABBY: My daughter and her
boyfriend have been dating for three years.
They are now in their first year of college
and she gets upset when he texts other girls
and Snapchats them. He makes her feel
like shes overreacting, but I can understand her fears that he is being unfaithful.
What do you think about social networking and how it can affect relationships
and even marriage? WISE MOM IN
NORTH CAROLINA
DEAR WISE MOM: If someone wants
to be unfaithful, social networking makes
it easier than ever. But men and women
who are ready to settle down and make a
commitment do not look for outside adventures, no matter how they go about it.
If your daughter is insecure about what
her boyfriend is doing, she may have good
reason. If shes right about her hunches,
the time has come for BOTH of them to
meet and date other people. Because she
has spent so much of her teens with only
this young man, the prospect may frighten
her. But please explain that this will be her
chance to mature and grow. As a Wise
Mom, Im sure you can get the message
across.

TABLE PROTECTION
Dear Heloise: My husband
and I inherited a beautiful dining-room table. I want to take
care of it. When we have gatherings, I am a little worried that
someone will let a drink sit on
the table and leave a water ring.
To help relieve my anxiety, I put
two tablecloths on. The bottom
one is smaller and cant be seen,
but provides extra protection. I
also put out coasters. Rosanne

PHOTO PROBLEM
Dear Heloise: I read the letter from someone who had photos that smelled like smoke and
wanted to know how to get rid of
the smell.
How about scanning them
on a color scanner and reprinting them? They can be reprinted on photo paper, which can
be bought at any office-supply

that prints photos to have them

DEAR ABBY: My children were over
at my in-laws recently. When we came
to pick them up, they told us their cat had
scratched our son. Sure enough, there were
five scratch marks on his
face, circling his left eye.
Dear
In the past we have recomabby mended they have the cat
declawed so this wouldnt
happen. They told us that
cats can make mistakes
with
just like kids do. We do not
Jeanne
share their opinion. Would
Phillips
it be unreasonable to not allow our kids to be over there
unless they declaw that cat?
DISCATIFIED IN WISCONSIN
DEAR DISCATIFIED: Cats do not
normally attack children out of nowhere.
Before you insist they declaw their pet,
perhaps you should investigate what led up
to your child being scratched. Could your
child have done something that caused the
animal to react defensively? If that might
be the case, then your son should be taught
about the proper handling of animals, because declawing a cat is not minor surgery.
Its like having the tips of ones fingers amputated, and some cities have outlawed the
practice.
