Toledo area workers join oil refineries strike



Monday, February 9, 2015


75 daily

OREGON (AP) Workers in

northwest Ohio have joined the first
nationwide strike at U.S. oil refineries
since 1980.
The Blade newspaper of Toledo
reported that some 100 BP-Husky
Toledo refinery workers began picketing at midnight Sunday outside the
plant in Oregon, Ohio. A local union
official said Saturday night that some
350 workers would be on strike and
planned to have picketing around the
Theyre discouraged that the
strike is happening, bu they under-

stand why it has to happen, said

Bryan Sidel, financial secretary of
the local.
The United Steelworkers union
earlier notified BP Plc. that workers
at refineries in Ohio and Indiana
would join a walkout that began Feb.
1 at nine other refineries.
A BP spokesman said the company
expects to continue operating with
replacement workers and doesnt
expect a significant effect on production.
The strike began after steelworkers said that negotiations with Shell

vides good wages while giving management the flexibility it needs to

remain competitive.
BPs plant in Whiting, Indiana, has
about 1,860 employees, more than
1,000 represented by the steelworkers. BPs Toledo refinery in Ohio,
which it owns 50-50 with Canadas
Husky Energy, has some 600 workers
The plants will be staffed by
replacements including retirees and
former front-line workers who now
hold salaried jobs, Dean said.

Museum celebrates Mardi Gras style

DHI Media Editor
DELPHOS The sound of Jazz and beads
galore filled the second floor of the Delphos Postal
Museum for its fourth annual Gala Sunday evening.
More than 75 guests enjoyed the music, food
and fellowship for the eve Mardi Gras-themed
event. Museum Director Gary Levitt was pleased
so many support his passion and one of only three
museums dedicated to postal history in the United
Im glad so many find this endeavor important
and something they want to support, Levitt said.
We are looking forward to our bus trip in October.
The first bus filled in less than 48 hours and we
have about 20 seats remaining on the second.
Levitt has also been busy with maintenance
work on his historic building that houses postal
We havent really added anything new the
exhibits this year. We did double our storage with
an addition, Levitt said.
Levitt said the most exciting new addition cant
be seen.
We are starting a travel/tourism bureau with
the support of the Allen and Van Wert County
Convention and Visitor bureaus, he said. We will
have a core committee retreat on that next weekend
and hopefully get that up and running as soon as
Fundraising new projects will begin this year.
Two exhibits were lost when the museum moved
from the basement of the post office to its current
location. The World War II and Holocaust exhibits
were created using the walls for murals and other
parts of the offerings that couldnt travel with the

Wed really like to put those back together,
Levitt said. They were very important pieces of
the museum when it was at the post office and they
need to be included.
The second floor of the museum is also available
for rent. Wedding receptions, a prom, bridal show-

wish coordinator
VAN WERT Deb Tracey has learned a lot about individuals who desire one last wish during their time struggling with a terminal disease. The most profound thing,
however, is that those moments become a celebration of
life for those individuals and those surrounding them.
Tracey, who assists in coordinating last-wish granting for
the Angel Foundation, said that the variety of requests
from those who have one last wish is as varied and unique
as the person requesting them.
Wishes have ranged from many trips to Florida or
Arizona, to a wish from an elderly lady who wanted to
go to New York City and a couple who still wanted to get

Tebow Foundation, The Lima First Assembly
of God Church will be sponsoring a Night to
Shine prom, a nationwide
event that will take place
simultaneously at participating churches across the
country for individuals
with disabilities aged 16-21
from 6-9 p.m. on Friday.
Allen County Board
Intervention Specialist
Rachel Staley explained that all young adults
from any of the surrounding communities
with a disability close to the 16-21-year-old
age range can register for the prom.
The whole evening is for all the kids to
shine, she said with passion. We are rolling
out the red carpet for each attendee, complete
with the paparazzi, limo rides and tiaras and
Staley said right now, there are 63 kids
registered and there can be up to 75 attending
the event.
Kids are coming from all over the surrounding areas, Staley said. One child is
traveling from Urbana for the special night.
She said they have also invited all the parents to attend the prom.
A lot of them are very excited and it will
provide them an opportunity to be a part of the
young adults special night as well as network
with other parents, she said enthusiastically.
Its been exciting. We are excited for the
community, kids and the love of our church.
Staley and her husband, Cameron, members of the church, first got the idea through
the Tim Tebow Foundations Facebook page,
where up to 50 churches were invited to sign
up online. They spoke with the churchs
pastor, Randy Davis, who was on board with

hosting the event and then the Staleys excitedly moved forward with filing a letter of
intent with the foundation.
Its our churchs mission of reaching
upward and outward, Staley explained. We
were one of 200 churches in the country
selected and in December we were notified
by the foundation. It is an
honor to be selected.
Staley said they had to
write a budget encompassing everything they would
need to host the event. In
turn, the foundation sent
them $8,500 and other
church and parents have
embraced this event donating time and money
to make this special night possible, Staley
explained. We have a company donating
their time and food for the catered dinner and
another for the makeup and hair styling.
Staley said the foundation sent enough
party favors, water bottles and wristbands for
each attendee.
Before the prom is over, we will have
a 5x7 photo of each of them developed and
framed for them to take home, she detailed.
Staley said the Tim Tebow Foundations
mission is one of faith, hope and love and
they want to offer kids a brighter day in their
darkest hour of need.
We had a video conference call with
Tim, where we heard and saw how much
passion he has for the event, she said. After
the prom, we will submit a video and 20 of
our best photos which will be difficult to
choose to the foundation.
The nationwide event is a celebration of
the foundations five-year anniversary and
their mission.
They already have a wait list of churches
and theres a chance it may turn into something more, Staley said.
To register for the event online visit limafirst.com or call the church at 419-229-5601.

Federal OSHA officials say

workplace fatalities rising
HAMILTON (AP) Workplace fatalities have been rising
in Ohio, and federal officials cite lack of attention to safe work
practices and training and the existence of younger and newer
manufacturing and construction workforces.
There had been an estimated 17 fatal workplace accidents
statewide in fiscal year 2015 as of last week, according to Bill
Wilkerson, director of the Occupational Health and Safety
Administrations Cincinnati area.
He says job cuts and retirements could be contributing to
less experience in the field and more workers unfamiliar with
industry hazards, the Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News
reports. Many fatal accidents also could be prevented with the
right equipment, Wilkerson added.
Wilkerson says OSHA investigated 46 fatal work accidents
statewide last year, compared with 38 in 2011.
There may be just too little regard being paid to instructing
people on safe work practices, having proper safety programs
and procedures in place and making sure that people follow up
on these things, Wilkerson said.
Dianne Grote Adams is president of consulting company Safex Inc., which works with the Ohio Manufacturers
Association. She said manufacturing has been challenged by
doing more with less and trying to make safety part of the
culture as workforce diversity increases.
Job sites change constantly in the construction industry and
with so many variables theres never one single factor to point
to as a cause of an accident, said Terry Phillips, executive
director of trade association Allied Construction Industries.
Phillips said construction companies have an incentive to keep
their workers safe in addition to concern for their employees.
OSHAs regulations require the training and the contractors comply because if they dont, they wont get the work,
Phillips said.
Among the major causes of workplace deaths are falls, being
struck by vehicles or materials and getting caught in equipment.
Directors of Ohios four OSHA areas, including Columbus,
Toledo and Cleveland, are urging more safety awareness
by employers and employees to reverse what Wilkerson on
Monday called disturbing trends.

SIDNEY Visit the Gateway
Arts Council gallery in the month of
February and view a collection of art by
Tom Emerine which features watercolor,
oil and ceramic pieces.
It is an honor to be able to present
this art to our community, said Gateway
Arts Council Executive Director Ellen
Emerine was raised in Carey, Ohio,
and now resides near Middle Point.
Owner of Raspberry Woods Art Studio,
he produces and sells paintings, drawings and functional pottery, in addition
to non-functional pieces. His work is
sold at art fairs, studio sales, consignment stores and online.
He has been a high school art teacher
at Van Wert High School for more than
two decades. Emerine is a graduate
of Carey High School. In college, his
passion for art was stoked by very gifted professors at Bowling Green State
University. He received his bachelors
degree and later a masters degree from
Bluffton College. In 2007, he opened his
studio while still teaching.
Emerine has a deep love of creating
When I open the door to the studio the adventure begins. Absolutely
all things are possible! I am only limited by my imagination and here in the

studio, there are no limits. Dreams are
birthed, plans take wings and no idea is
too far out of reach. The fragile infancy
of a dream may stir for a long time.
Eventually a thought is transformed
from an idea just floating around out
there somewhere into a real project,
said Emerine.
He has a playful attitude toward life
and doesnt seem to take himself too
seriously, although he is very passionate about the work he does as an artist.
Emerine currently participates in local

and regional juried art competitions. He

recently won the William Nonnamaker
Award at the Findlay Art League, he
also won a first place award at the
Gateway Arts Council in Sydney and
the Marguerite Fryer Award in Van Wert.
Emerine has had a good bit of success
with awards in competition, but these
are only temporal things. What he really
treasures are the relationships built with
the people who find their way to his
As Emerine looks at the landscape
paintings, wildlife drawings and the
ceramic pieces that fill his studio, he
remembers those who made it all possible.
All that stirs within me has danced
in the hearts of those who have gone
before me. With the work of my hands,
may I honor them and the One who is
forever faithful, he said.
The art of Emerine will be on display
at the Gateway Arts Council gallery
located at 216 North Miami Avenue
through the month of February. The
exhibit can be seen Monday through
Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A closing
reception for the exhibit will be held
Feb. 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. The reception is
free and open to the public. For information on this exhibit or any Gateway Arts

Illinois power plant at center of Midwest rate fights

wonder if theyve been duped as power suppliers work to recoup
investments in a financially troubled Illinois generating plant and
coal mine.
Rate increases and equipment breakdowns were the opposite
of what dozens of municipalities that invested in the Prairie State
Energy Campus were promised: low-cost, reliable energy for
decades to come.
Now, customers in Galion, Ohio, have threatened ballot action. They
want the city to repay overcharges they allege were amassed to mask
high electricity costs from the Washington County, Illinois, project.
In Batavia, Illinois, another group of customers filed class-action
litigation alleging city-paid consultants misrepresented financial risks
associated with the complex, constructed by coal producer Peabody
The municipal power provider in Paducah, Kentucky, contemplated bankruptcy after its customers blamed its decision to invest in
Prairie State for some of the states highest electricity rates.
When Prairie States 1,600-megawatt generating operation, mine
and landfill went on line in 2012, its development had cost $4.9 billion more than twice the original estimate. That forced rate hikes
and fees called power adjustments in many of the 217 municipalities
and 17 electric cooperatives that invested in the project.
Prairie States defenders say it was expensive because its one of
the countrys cleanest, most efficient power plants. As one of the few
coal plants built in the U.S. in 30 years, it faced unanticipated costs
in meeting tough, modern carbon emissions standards proposed by
the Environmental Protection Agency that have vexed older coalfired plants.
Many of the 68 Ohio municipalities that belong to the American
Municipal Power cooperative signed stringent take or pay contracts that obligate investors to pay for their full contracted share
of power whether or not they receive it for 50 years. Many
customers now feel duped.

COLUMBUS (AP) Drivers pulled over by Ohio troopers

are getting printouts instead of hand-scribbled citations as the
State Highway Patrol expands an electronic ticketing system to
reduce errors, make paperwork easier to read and cut the time
officers spend outside during stops.
Troopers previously wrote drivers license and offense
information on carbon-copy forms, which were checked and
compiled at patrol posts and hand-delivered to courts.
Now theyre using mobile computers to import license
data and fill out citations. It auto-completes some data and
generates prompts to help eliminate mistakes, such as setting
a court appearance for a day when offices are closed, patrol
spokesman Lt. Craig Cvetan said.
Troopers print the letter-size citations in their vehicles with
thermal printers that dont require ink cartridges, and they keep
ticket books on hand in case of technical glitches.
Our workforce has gotten a lot younger over the years, and
theyre the computer generation, so anything we can do on the
computer they seem to take to a lot quicker, said Lt. Kevin
Knapp of the Delaware post.
Knapp said the change is a big deal for troopers but probably not for drivers.
I dont think it really matters what we hand them, he said.
Theyre not really happy to be in that situation in the first
The system piloted in spring 2013 is now used by most
Ohio posts, and they want to take it a step further by arranging
to electronically transmit citation information to local courts.
In one pilot program, the Delaware Municipal Court clerk
in central Ohio started receiving traffic citations electronically
in mid-January, significantly cutting the time it takes to enter
each ticket. Information that took three minutes to type now
downloads in 36 seconds, clerk of court Cindy Dinovo said.
The court handled upward of 12,000 patrol filings last year, so
the switch could save potentially hundreds of hours of work.
The patrol and the court say the system was arranged with
encrypted data and a high regard for security to protect against
improper alterations. The patrol eventually hopes to electronically handle crash reports and criminal citations, too, and to
transmit information wirelessly from vehicles instead of via
uploads from various posts.
The Ohio Association of Municipal and County Court
Clerks is excited by the possibility of expanding electronic
delivery to more courts, said Dinovo, who serves as an official
with the group.
She said the system has worked smoothly, appears to be
reducing mistakes and was a relatively inexpensive change
because her court already was upgrading its server.
I dont think theres a downside, she said.
It was more costly for the patrol,
paid nearly

$736,000 to buy printers for 1,350 vehicles. The patrol incorporated the switch to e-citations as it redesigned its crash and
case program in the past few years, Cvetan said.


Pension Retirement


State officials urge anglers
planning on ice fishing to be
prepared and take safety precautions when heading out on
Ohio waters.
The Ohio Department of
Natural Resources says its
important to remember that any
ice covered by snow should
always be presumed to be unsafe.
The department says
anglers should contact a local
ice guide or bait shop to ask
about ice conditions and adequately check ice thickness
before traveling on it.
Anglers also are urged to
dress properly for conditions
and wear an approved life
vest. They also should always
fish with a partner or where
other anglers are fishing.
Anglers also should let
others know where they are
going and when they expect to
return. They also should know
when to go indoors.

SpongeBob unseats Sniper

SpongeBob Movie: Sponge

hit American Sniper at the
weekend box office, while a
pair of high-priced fantasies
earned $56 million in North
America, a huge debut for the
animated Nickelodeon bigscreen transfer, according to
estimates Sunday. That finally pushed American Sniper
off the top spot after a threeweek reign. The Navy SEAL
drama took in $24.2 million
in its fourth week of wide
The Wachowskis lavish
science-fiction adventure
Jupiter Ascending opened
with just $19 million, a
meager amount for a $175
million production. Warner

the movie, starring Channing
Tatum and Mila Kunis, from
last summer.
Son, a supernatural thriller set in medieval times,
debuted with a scant $7.1
million. The film, produced
by Legendary Pictures and
starring Jeff Bridges, cost
nearly $100 million to make.
That gave the box office a
couple of lucrative hits and a
pair of costly misses to lead
the early February weekend.
The success of The
SpongeBob Movie, the
second SpongeBob film
following 2004s The

Nickelodeon character. The
colorful, beach-set cartoon

SpongeBob also capitalized
on a marketplace hungry for
family films in the midst of
winter, well after the swath of
holiday releases. On the same
weekend last year, Warner

emerged as one of 2014s
biggest hits.
This movie played a little

UK film awards boost Boyhood

LONDON (AP) Slow-cooked coming-of-age tale
Boyhood took the best film and director trophies at the British
Academy Film Awards on Sunday, while Wes Andersons
candy-colored comedy The Grand Budapest Hotel won the
biggest haul of prizes, with five.
Both are unusual works by distinctive directors, and there
were also multiple trophies for the Stephen Hawking biopic
The Theory of Everything and the jazz-drumming drama
Whiplash at an event that proved small, personal films could
emerge as winners.
Awards-season high-flyer Birdman had its wings clipped,
taking only a cinematography prize from 10 nominations. And
World War II code-breaking drama The Imitation Game won
nothing despite nine nominations.
Richard Linklater, who spent 12 years making Boyhood,
was named best director, and Patricia Arquette won the supporting-actress trophy as a struggling mother in the film.
Arquette said Linklater had set out to show how extraordinary an ordinary life is.
Boyhood star Ellar Coltrane, who grew from 6 to 18
onscreen, thanked British voters for rewarding an exercise of
collaboration and vulnerability.
The British awards, known as the BAFTAs, are considered
an indicator of likely success at Hollywoods Academy Awards
later this month.
The Theory of Everything was named best British film,
and won an acapted-screenplay award for Anthony McCarten.
Eddie Redmayne, already an awards-season favorite, won
the best-actor prize for his performance as physicist Hawking,
who probed the cosmos while his body was wracked by motor
neuron disease.
Redmayne said the evening went much better than his last
BAFTA appearance, which he spent vomiting backstage with
food poisoning when he was supposed to be presenting an
It was one of the worst nights of my life, Redmayne said.
This is one of the best nights of my life.
The actor paid an emotional tribute to Hawking, his ex-wife
Jane and their families, for reminding me of the great strength
that comes from the will to live a full and passionate life.
Julianne Moore was named best actress for portraying a
professor with Alzheimers in Still Alice.
Anderson won the original screenplay trophy for The
Grand Budapest Hotel, which also took prizes for production
design, costumes, hair and makeup and Alexandre Desplats

North Carolina coaching

great Dean Smith dies at 83
Associated Press

Dean Smith was more than simply a

basketball coach.
Yes, the retired Hall of Famer left
North Carolina as the winningest coach
in mens history after capturing two
national titles along with the 1976
Olympic gold medal and coaching some
of the sports biggest names, Michael
Jordan among them.
But he also was an innovator who left
a lasting influence on the sport, as well
as someone known for his stand on civil
rights driven by the belief that it was the
right thing to do.
Smith died peacefully Saturday at
age 83 at his Chapel Hill home, his
family said in a statement released by
the school Sunday. He was with his wife
and five children.
Roy Williams, the current Tar Heels
coach and Smiths assistant for 10 years,
said his mentor was the greatest there
ever was on the court but far, far better
off the court with people.

The LadyCats (14-5, 5-0) used a 1-21-1 full-court press to get it going, forcing seven miscues alone in the first period. That, plus seven offensive rebounds,
allowed them to get 21 attempts at the
goal. They sank seven, with Brittany
Kahle (17 counters, 4 boards) netting
Ottoville senior Annie Lindeman and Leipsic senior Kelly seven to lead the effort. Her 3-ball at
Nadler go up for the opening tap during Saturday nights 25 ticks gave them a 17-8 edge before

points, 9 boards) put back her own miss
with a 5-footer with 4.0 ticks on the

Saturday night inside a

Alas for the Lady Big
Green, it didnt end up so well
as the Lady Vikings emerged
with a 43-38 squeaker.
Shaylnn Morman came up
big for the visitors in the extra
session, dropping in six of their

eight points and ending her

15-point night. Chloe Kaufman
added the other two points in
overtime on a pair of singles.
Brooke Mangas netted
a triple for the Green and
Golds only points of the session, finishing with six points.
Pacing the way for the
home team were senior Annie
Lindeman with 10 markers
the only Ottoville player in
double digits and freshman
Bridget Landin with nine.
Also guiding the Purple
and Gold of Leipsic was
Kelly Nadler with 10.
See LOCAL, page 7

Kalida mixed in 3/4-court and halfcourt presses always dropping back

into man-to-man starting the second
period and that worked well, too, forcing eight more Rocket (5-13) miscues.
Kahle and Jacquelyn Gardner (4 boards)
dropped in five each in the stanza. They
also limited the hosts to three fielders
(out of 10 tries) all by Brittany
Hovest (11 markers). Kalida held a
33-14 edge on a drive by Gardner at
2:13 but the halftime score read 33-16
on a second-chance basket by Hovest
with a minute showing.
P-G handled the ball better the third
period (4 turnovers); that and five
offensive rebounds allowed them
more chances at the basket. They
canned 6-of-17 shots with Swary
and Lindsay Macke (8 rebounds) scoring four each. On the other end, Kylie
Osterhage (game-high 18 counters, 7
boards) put in seven. After leading by
45-22 around the 3-minute mark, her

triple from the right wing with 13.5 ticks

showing gave Kalida a 48-28 edge.
Kalida coach Adam Huber emptied
his bench through the fourth period
(12 dressed), while P-G coach Jessica
Liedtke with only eight girls dressed
didnt quite have that luxury.
We talked to the girls before the
game about how young Pandora was
and how we needed to set the tone right
away. You dont want to give a young
team confidence by letting them stay
around and perhaps make it a game,
Huber explained. Our defenses, especially in the press, worked really well.
We feel that we play a rotation of eight
and were in good physical condition, so
we can not only get some easier baskets
but wear teams down. Our girls are comfortable in that style of game. We knew
Pandora would keep playing hard and
not give in.

College Roundup
Beaver men sweep season series with Franklin
By Griffin Kuras
Sports information assistant
College came to Bluffton
looking to avenge a 74-70
December setback to the
Beavers; however, Bluffton
had none of it as the home
team completed its first-ever
season sweep of the Grizzlies,
76-64. The Beavers were able
to ride a hot start and grind

their way through the second half to a crucial victory.

Bluffton held its ground in
the tournament picture while
improving to 11-10 overall
with a 7-7 mark in Heartland
Conference. The Grizzlies
dipped to 5-16 with a 4-10
record in the HCAC.
The Beavers once again
came out with a hot start
as they jumped out to a
20-10 advantage with 15
of the first 20 points coming off assists from Ryan

Jefferson) or Thayne Recker
(Arlington) as they were
both instrumental in the
early surge. The Grizzles
stayed within striking distance as Robbie Prather
drained three consecutive
triples. The first half would
end with the Beavers on top,
44-35, but the Grizzles were
closing in.
The second half was a
different story as it became
an even more physical game.

The final differential did

not reflect the kind of effort
that both teams were giving. The home team let the
big men take over as both
Recker and Joshua Woodrich
(Navarre/Central Christian)
cashed in with double-doubles. They dominated the
glass as Recker hauled in 11
and Woodrich ripped down a
career-high 12.

DHI Media Correspondent
BLUFFTON Jefferson won the
Northwest Conference wrestling team
title held Saturday at Bluffton High
The Wildcats lost Hunter Binkley
and Brice Metzger to injuries sustained
during the meet and were also without
the services of Andrew Foust due to a
medical condition.
Even without three key team members, Jefferson won the team title with
242 points, outdistancing the second-place
tie between Allen East and Bluffton.
Spencerville was close behind, garnering 221 points to finish in fourth
place. Columbus Groves 168 points
put them in sixth place, followed by
Paulding (149) and Lincolnview (66).
Jefferson had two individual champions to lead the way for the team title.
Wyatt Place was dominating against
his opponents to easily win the 132pound crown. Place opened with a 7-1
decision over Lee Dues of Allen East in
the first round. Following a bye, Place
recorded a pair over major decisions
over Spencervilles Cody Dickerson
(14-4) and Nick Luke of Bluffton (12-0).
Teammate Tyler Foust also had an
easy day by not even breaking a sweat
to take the 182-pound bracket. Foust
pinned Justin Haggard of Bluffton in
1:47 and also made quick work of
Columbus Groves Enoch Jones in 1:43.
I had some guys step up and wrestle
really well to win the title, exclaimed
Jefferson coach Mike Wilson. Im so
proud of our wrestlers because their
goal was to win the conference and
they worked really hard this week in
practice with a lot of focus. During the
meet - I didnt think that we would be
able to pull it out after losing two good
wrestlers to injuries. But we had 5 guys
finish in the top two and that was the
key to earn enough points to win the
conference title.
Also placing for Jefferson as runner-ups were: Josh Kroeger (170), Lane
Bennett (195) and Reid Corzine (220).
Bobby Stevenson was third at 285
pounds. Binkley was making his first

decision to state-ranked Chase Sumner

of Ada.
Other high placers include Jaden
Dickson in third place at 220 pounds
and Jacob Gibsons fourth-place finish
at 152 pounds.
Paulding matched Spencervilles
3-individual-champion total but didnt
have enough depth to finish higher in the
final team standings.
Kage Seals won the 113-pound title
with three quick pins: Cody KretzerAllen East (40 seconds), Kade CortezAda (44 seconds) and Casey McGuireBluffton (5 seconds). Aaron Mock

Lady Knights draw top district seed

DHI Media Business Mgr
Undefeated Crestview led
the way for area girls basketball teams as the Knights
picked up the top seed in
the Lima Senior Division IV
district tournament as tournament matchups were set
on Sunday afternoon around
the area.
The Knights (16-0) will
open tournament play on
February 28 against either
Delphos Jefferson (5-12)
or Miller City (4-16) in the
6:15 p.m. contest. Delphos
Jefferson and Miller City will
square off at 7:00 p.m. on
February 24.
On February 25 at Van
and Fort Jennings (1-17)
in the opener followed by

falling 79-46 in a non-league

game Saturday at Lima Senior
Gymnasium. The Spartans ran out
to a 17-0 start in the first four-plus
minutes of the game and extended
their lead to 21-2 after one quarter.
We just never were in the thing,
Van Wert coach Mark Bagley said.
Im proud of Van Wert basketball
and the tradition we have, but it
snowed balled tonight out of control.
It was from start to finish and there
was no break.
Connor Holliday made a putback off a rebound with three minutes remaining in the first quarter
for Van Werts only bucket of the
frame. The lid came off the basket
for Van Wert in the second quarter
as Josh Braun had 10 points and
Holliday five of the 17 points, but
Lima Senior still rolled into halftime with a 42-19 lead.
It never got much better for the
Cougars (6-11), who mustered only
nine points in the third quarter and 18
in the fourth.
Braun had 13 points, including
three 3-pointers, and four rebounds
to lead Van Wert. Holliday added
nine points.
Thirteen players scored for Lima
Senior (13-3). Jaylin Thomas led all
scorers with 19 points, including a
third-quarter dunk from the right
baseline. Xavier Simpson added 12
points, and Ruben Flowers had six
points and eight rebounds.
We always talk about sharing the ball, Lima Senior coach
Quincey Simpson said. Thats what
has gotten us a lot of success. These
guys have played with me since
they were young so they understand
my emphasis on it doesnt matter

Patrick Henry (4-14) against

Lincolnview (11-8). The two
victors then meet in the second game on February 28.
Elsewhere in Division IV,
Bryan and Paulding host sectional games for the district
tournament that is played at
Archbold High School.
At Bryan, Hicksville (118) tangles with Antwerp
(5-13) in the lone game on
February 24.
The following night,
Wayne Trace (12-6) plays
Continental (3-14) in the
opener before Montpelier
(8-10) tangles with Fayette
Pettisville (17-1) takes on the
Hicksville-Antwerp winner at
6:15 before the Wayne TraceContinental victor battles the
Montpelier-Fayette winner in
the nightcap.
In Division II, the district
tournament will be hosted by

who gets the points. We want to

make sure were taking good shots,
were taking high percentage shots,
and we want to make sure were
looking ahead on the fast break,
sharing the ball.
The Spartans used their length
the average height of the first eight
players in the rotation for Lima
Senior is 6-foot-3 and athletic
ability to befuddle Van Wert into 21
turnovers, with eight coming in the
dreadful first quarter. Lima Senior
scored eight points off turnovers in
the first quarter.
The speed of the game was way
too fast for us to play that fast,
Bagley said. We tried to play as
fast as we could and we turned it
over, and it absolutely snow balled.
The loss comes one night after
the Cougars took Western Buckeye
League-leading Celina to the wire
in a 44-40 loss. Bagley wasnt ready
to blame the Cougars third straight
loss on any hangover from the night
prior, though.
We played as well as we could
for 29 minutes (Friday) night,
Bagley said. We were shot last
night after the game, our kids
were devastated, but were playing a great basketball team (Lima
Senior). Theyve gone through a lot
of different things and now theyve
got their full team and theyre obviously playing very well.
The road doesnt get easier for
the Cougars. After facing Celina
and Lima Senior this weekend, they
turn around and face Defiance and
St. Henry next weekend. Those four
teams have a combined 58-7 record
this season.
The goal of every team is to be

Paulding High School while

sectional play takes place at
Spencerville and Hicksville.
Lima Bath was the top
seed and will open tournament play at Hicksville on
Saturday, February 28. The
Wildcats (16-1) will take on
Bryan (4-14) in the 8:00 p.m.
game of the night.
Van Werts sectional
action begins on Wednesday,
February 25, when the
Cougars (5-14) take on Elida
(7-12) at 7:00 p.m. The winner of that game returns on
February 28 at 6:15 p.m. to
take on Defiance (11-8).
At Spencerville, Napoleon

and St. Marys (8-10) takes
on Lima Shawnee (7-12)
in action on February 24.
Wauseon (13-5) awaits
the Napoleon-Celina winner on February 28 at 6:15
p.m. while second seeded
Wapakoneta (14-4) will play

tested and ready once the postseason rolls around. With the sectional
tournament draw next Sunday and
the first day of the sectional in a
little over two weeks, Bagley hopes
the bumps and bruises of these losses turn into lessons and tournament
Thats why I dont sleep at
night, because it doesnt get any
easier, Bagley said. Our schedule
is brutal. We set it up that way. Now
weve got to start getting better. We
were getting better, but tonight was
a huge step backwards.

Knights rebound with trumping of Aces

DHI Media Sports Editor
CONVOY - Coming off a
disappointing effort in a loss to
Spencerville on Friday, Crestview
faced another stiff test from stateranked Hicksville at Ray Etzler
Gymnasium on Saturday. Though
undersized, the Knights dominated
the glass and torched the nets en
route to a lopsided 67-42 non-conference win.
Crestview hit on 21 of their 40
field goal tries (53 percent) and
knocked in 10 of 17 from 3-point
I thought we played unbelievably selfless basketball, Crestview
head coach Jeremy Best said following the win.We found the open
guy, our head was up, looking up
the floor. We attacked their zone,
got it to the middle. We put Preston
(Zaleski) there, kind of as a second
point guard at the high post, and he
did a great job of finding guys.

the St. Marys-Lima Shawnee

victor at 8:00 p.m.
Wapakoneta High School and
Riverdale High School host
sectionals that feed into the
Elida district tournament.
Elmwood (8-9) will make
the long trip to the home
of the Redskins to battle
Parkway (6-10) in the 6:15
p.m. game on February 25
while Bluffton (9-8) and
Coldwater (9-7) battle in the
second game.
Ottawa Glandorf (162) awaits the winner of the
Royals-Panthers battle while
Columbus Grove (11-6) takes
on the Pirates-Cavaliers winner in action on February 28.
In the Riverdale portion of
the district, Allen East (9-9)
plays Upper Sandusky (11-6)
in the lone game on February
25 at 7:00 p.m.

The main beneficiary of the

Crestview ball movement was
senior sharpshooter MItchell
Rickard, who drilled all six 3-point
shots he tried on his way to a season-high 21 points. Two others,
Connor Lautzenheiser with 19 and
Cody Mefferd with 14, also reached
double figures.
The game becomes easy when
the ball goes in the basket, Best
added. But that happened because
we were making excellent reads and
making the extra pass.
The win was about far more
than the Knight offense, however.
Crestview also cleaned up when
it came to rebounding, though the
Aces lineup featured a significant size advantage and two of the
regions more athletic players in 6-4
Garrett Crall and 6-2 Jonny Giesige.
Crestviews tallest starter was senior
post Jake Lippi at 6-1. Still, through
three periods, while the outcome
was still in questions, the Knights
out-boarded the Aces 22-12.
We came out and played some
triangle-and-two, and that was really more to try to help us control
the backboards, Best explained. At
least we knew were accountable for
for those two guys, Crall and Giesige,
on the glass, plus we had a couple
guys that were already in rebounding
zones down there on the blocks.
Hicksville scored six straight
points early in the game and held
a 6-3 lead on the home team before
Rickards first trey of the game
knotted the score. Rickards shot
ignited a 10-0 Knight run to end
the period with Crestview holding a
13-6 advantage.

Smith led the Tar Heels to 13 Atlantic
Coast Conference tournament championships and 11 Final Fours, winning
NCAA titles in 1982 and 1993. Along
the way, more than 95 percent of Smiths
lettermen graduated while more than


50 of his players went on to play in

the NBA or ABA including Phil
Ford, Brad Daugherty, Jerry Stackhouse,

Smith seemed uncomfortable with
the attention that came with breaking
Rupps record. When former Indiana
and Texas Tech coach Bob Knight was
on the verge over taking it over in 2007,
Smith noted with a sarcastic smile, Im
going to cry about that.
But still, its something that, we
do it for the team, Smith said. When
theyre excited, thats why were in this
field. Im sure its that way with Bob
Knight. Its never one of his goals and
certainly was never one of mine.

St. Johns took the lead as the nimble Conley swiped a

Lincolnview pass and scored at the other end. Hays converted
a pair of free throws and Alex Odenweller drained a 3-pointer
to lead 22-15. Dowdy end the Blue Jay scoring streak by scoring from the paint but Hays answered with a pull-up jumper.
Grothouses steal resulted in a hoop-and-foul, putting the Jays
up by double digits 27-17. The Lancers scored the next four
points on buckets by Trevor Neate and Adams. Grothouse was
fouled on a drive with 3.7 seconds remaining in the half and
his free throws gave St. Johns a 29-21 lead.
Lincolnview came roaring out of the locker room to pull
within one on a 7-0 run. A triple by Odenweller from the top
of the key was countered by a 3-pointer by Dowdy. Neate
sparked the Lancer offense on consecutive drives to the hoop
while being fouled. Not to be outdone, Grothouse scored on
old-fashioned 3-point play to even the score at 38. Neate continued to score for the Lancers, converting a pair of charity
tosses for a 40-38 lead after three periods.
Hays opened the final quarter scoring with a driving floater
in the lane to tie the score for the final time. Ludwig scored
on a nice spin move as Hays answered for the Jays with a
drive down the middle. Neate notched an assist to Adams
for the bucket followed by a banker by Conley for the Jays.
Lincolnviews lead grew to 48-44 as Dowdy scored a baseline
jumper but Odenweller pulled the Jays back to within one on
a jumper from long range with 1:45 remaining in the contest.
With the slim lead, the Lancer offense showed patience until
Ludwig found Neate open underneath. After the Jays failed to
score on their next possession, St. Johns was forced to foul to
stop the clock and Lincolnview converted 8-of-12 foul shots
in the final minute to seal the victory.
We played poorly in the second quarter, allowing St.
Johns to jump out to that 10-point lead. explained Coach
Hammons. At halftime I told the guys to get the ball to
Dowdy since he had the hot hand in the first half. Their execution of the game plan brought us back and Trevor Neate really
stepped up in the second half to generate our offense.
Lincolnview was led in scoring by Dowdy with 25 points
(including 12 of 14 from the foul line). Neate was also in double digits with 13 points. The Lancers shot 53 percent from the
floor, 2-of-6 from long range and hit 18-of-28 attempts from
the free-throw line.
The Blue Jays displayed balanced scoring between three

attempts and 5-of-11 on 3-balls. St. Johns went to the line 20
times and converted 14.
We came out flat in the third quarter and couldnt extend
the lead, said a disappointed St. Johns coach Aaron Elwer.
The first three minutes of the second half is the most important time of the game and give Lincolnview credit they took
advantage and made a run to take back the lead. I told our guys
before the game that this was a big game for sectiona- tournament seeding and we are now 11-6 needing to stop the trend
of not being able to put games away.
On the glass, rebounds were nearly even as St. Johns
grabbed 19 and Lincolnview 18.

Islamic State hostages family Student
reasons to support Pete Rose
still hopeful she is alive
The parents of a 26-year-old
American who has been held
hostage for more than a year
by Islamic State extremists
were clinging to hope Sunday
that their daughter is alive,
having yet to receive information confirming otherwise.
Family friend Todd Geiler
said that the parents of Kayla
Jean Mueller of Prescott,
Arizona, are in a very fragile state.
The strain of not knowing where their daughter is
at and whether or not she is
alive or not is something that
is starting to wear on them,
Geiler said. But if we had
to go on ahead and say in
a word how theyre doing,

theyre hopeful for her safe

The parents are asking the
nation and the world to pray
for Muellers return, he said.
This thing, its time to have
an ending. Its time to bring
Kayla home to her parents
and her family, Geiler said.
The Islamic State group
said Friday that Mueller
died in a Jordanian airstrike.
The government of Jordan
dismissed the statement as
propaganda. U.S. officials
said they have not seen any
evidence to corroborate the
Mueller is the only known
remaining U.S. hostage held
by the Islamic State group.
She was taken hostage in

August 2013 while leaving a

hospital in Syria.
Her parents and a few
close friends kept Muellers
situation a closely guarded
secret to ensure her safety.
Since her identity was publicized Friday, they have
stayed out of public view but
released a short statement
addressed to Islamic State.
You told us that you
treated Kayla as your guest,
as your guest her safety and
well-being remains your
responsibility, Muellers
family said.
Meanwhile, the road leading to their Prescott home
remains blocked off by
Yavapai County Sheriffs
Office vehicles. In down-

town Prescott, Mueller is on

the minds of most people.
Tourists stop to look at a
handmade Pray for Kayla

Mueller is an aid worker
who previously volunteered
with organizations in India,
Israel and the Palestinian territories. She had been working in Turkey assisting Syrian
refugees, according to a 2013
article in The Daily Courier,
her hometown newspaper.
She knew where she was
headed, Geiler said. She
knew what she wanted to do.
There was compassion and
caring for those less fortunate. She always wanted to
help somebody in need.

Smith, along with Beyonce, Pharrell
and Ed Sheeran, lost album of the year
to Becks Morning Phase, which also
won best rock album.
Kanye West, who famously interrupted Taylor Swift when she beat Beyonce
at the MTV Video Music Awards,
almost walked onstage when Prince
announced Becks name. Some in the
audience seemed shocked, from Pharrell
to Questlove.
Becks album debuted at No. 3 on
the Billboard 200 albums chart and sold
about 300,000 units.
Pharrell and Rosanne Cash walked
away with three awards each. Pharrell
won best pop solo performance for a
live version of Happy, released in
2013. He also won best music video for

the song and best urban contemporary

album for G I R L, beating Beyonce.

Pharrells performance of Happy
was dramatic with background dancers

The job market remains a frustrating place for Americas 9
million unemployed perhaps
more so as hiring has accelerated along with job postings.
The pace of job growth over
the past three months was the
fastest in 17 years. The gains
spanned nearly every industry,
and some employers have finally had to dangle higher pay to
attract or retain top talent.
And yet millions of job
seekers still cant find work.
Some businesses remain slow
to fill their openings, awaiting the ideal candidate. Many
job seekers lack the skills
employers require.
The plight of the unem-

ployed also reflects an economic reality: Even in the

best times, the number of job
seekers is typically twice the
number of job openings.
The January jobs report
that the government issued
Friday pointed to another factor, too: As hiring strengthens, more people typically
start looking for jobs. As the
number of job seekers grows,
so does competition for work.
The number of openings
has reached nearly 5 million,
the most since 2001. Yet thats
barely more than half the
number of people the government counts as unemployed.
Theres always going to
be a set of job vacancies,

and there are always going

to be a set of people transitioning from unemployment to work, said Tara
Sinclair, an economics professor at George Washington
University. The transition
isnt instantaneous.
For many, the transition
can be maddeningly slow.
Complaints abound about
online job sites that seem
to function more as black
holes than as gateways to

Report: Automakers fail to

fully protect against hacking
WASHINGTON (AP) Automakers are
cramming cars with wireless technology, but
they have failed to adequately protect those
features against the real possibility that hackers could take control of vehicles or steal
personal data, according to an analysis of
information that manufacturers provided to
a senator.
Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass., asked
automakers a series of questions about the
technologies and any safeguards against hackers built into their vehicles. He also asked
about how the information that vehicle computers gather and often transmit wirelessly is
Markey posed his questions after researchers showed how hackers can get into the controls of some popular cars and SUVs, causing
them suddenly to accelerate, turn, sound the
horn, turn headlights off or on and modify
speedometer and gas-gauge readings.

The responses from 16 manufacturers

Todays cars and light trucks typically contain more than 50 electronic control units

a network in the car. At the same time, nearly
all new cars on the market today include
at least some wireless entry points to these

anti-theft systems and cellular-telematics, the
report said. Only three automakers said they

share of their fleets.

been viewed as the strength

of the Prairie State deal.
However, the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission
has been investigating the
financing deal after complaints from members of
Congress and local officials
across the region.
AMP spokesman Kent
Carson, whose company
holds the largest share of
ownership in Prairie State,
said long-term power purchase arrangements are nothing new. He said the plant

is a solid long-term investment and the onsite coal mine

eliminates financial risks of
transportation and fuel costs
when power companies ship
coal from elsewhere.
Carson said it is primarily
anti-coal environmentalists
who are fanning the Prairie
State controversy, who compare rates for this long-term
asset to the short-term hourly
electricity market.
Thats apples-to-oranges
and extremely misleading,
he said.

ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) Abby Campbell is a mature soul

for a 13-year-old.
Shes not into Ugg boots, iPhones, or even Hunger Games
No, this Ashland Middle School seventh-grader has a passion for something else: Pete Rose.
Yes, that Pete Rose the Hit King who has been banned
from baseball for twice as many years as Abby has been alive.
Abby and her teacher at AMS, Larry Bailey, are involved in
a monstrous extracurricular project called 4,256 reasons why
Pete Rose should be in the Hall of Fame.
The number 4,256 is significant because thats how many
hits Rose collected in an amazing major league career that
spanned 24 seasons, most of those with the Cincinnati Reds.
The project has the endorsement of Rose, who sent Abby an
autographed photo and his best wishes for what they were trying to do. She wrote the Hit King a letter, explaining what she
and her teacher were doing and he responded enthusiastically.
Since October they have collected more than 2,000 of the
reasons, scouring the Internet for everything they can find with
Roses name attached to it. Abby comes to school an hour early
five days a week to do the research.
Bailey, a baseball collector and longtime fan of Rose, has
interviewed more than 50 former players to get some of the
reasons from them.
Once all the information is collected, they plan to put it in
book form, Bailey said. Proceeds will go toward the purchase
of baseball gear for Little Leagues in the Ashland area.
The goal is to be finished by April, he said.
Abby began the project because of an English assignment
where Bailey asked the class to write a personal narrative. He
wanted the students to learn research skills, along with learning
more about the person they were writing about.
I wanted to do a basketball player or a baseball player,
Abby said. He (Bailey) said, Pete Rose. Well have to look
up information on him.
It was like turning Nolan Ryan loose on a Little League
team. She dove into the research and started with her father,
Bryan Campbell, who is also a fan of Rose and believes he
belongs in the Hall of Fame. The two of them often watch
Reds games together.
Everything that Abby has learned about Rose isnt great.
She knows he bet on baseball and found out he served jail time
for tax evasion. But she also knows that he is one of the best
baseball players in history and has more hits than anybody who
ever played.
Everybody deserves a second chance, she said. We get
second chances at school all the time.
Her research methods are what youd expect, and it has
been a no-stone-unturned process.
I type in Pete Rose on Google, she said. But were not
only looking at his stats but everything else. Were writing
letters to former teammates asking them for reasons.
Campbell is organized in the project. She and a friend,
Destiny Edens, work together with their teacher.
Abby has the research on a thumb drive and they also have
a three-inch thick folder of hard copies. The reasons 4,256
of them are coming one by one.
Abby said theyve already chosen the final answer.
The last one is 4,256 hits and zero steroids, she said.

nine years since our breakup, but I feel devastated and sad all over again. I constantly wonder why he was blessed with the happy ending

Do Just
one thing
by Danny Seo

Heres a simple
habit to get into with
your garage door
at home: Keep it
closed. When your
garage is warmer in
the winter and cooler
in the summer, youll
save on your overall
energy costs. Since
the garage is often
connected to the
house, cool air that
blows in from outside during the winter can make its way
into your home, and
vice versa during the
summer. So consider
using the garage door
to get your car inside
and outside only, not
as another door to
and from the house.
If youve boiled or
flash-cooked a large
pot of vegetables,
dont toss the leftover
water down the drain.
Instead, let the water
cool and give your
houseplants or garden
a nutritionally packed
treat to help them
thrive. The residual
vitamins that come
from the vegetables
are incredibly beneficial for plants. Just
make sure the water
is completely cooled
and free of any salt,
which is dehydrating and damaging to
plants. If there are bits
of cooked vegetables
in the water, strain
them out before using the water for your

cussion about food some leading man.

K: Im trying to eat
more fruits and vegetables, but I dont have
time to go to the grocery store every week.
So I stock up on frozen
produce. Am I missing
out on any nutritional
benefits by eating frozen instead of fresh?
For taste, variety and
quality of nutrients,
recently picked local
produce is the way to
go. But if fresh produce is inconvenient
or beyond your budget, frozen fruits and
plenty of nutrition.
Fresh fruits and
vegetables are indeed
more nutritious, but
the difference between
fresh and frozen produce may not be as
stark as you think.
Researchers at the
University of California-Davis found that:
-- Fresh and frozen
produce are similar in
terms of carbohydrate,
protein, fiber and mineral content.
-- Fresh produce
can lose half of its vitamins and beneficial
plant-derived chemicals during storage or
-- More water-soluble vitamins such as C
are lost during the frozen packaging process
than fat-soluble vitamins such as A and E.
Another point to
consider is that not
all produce sold as
fresh really is fresh.

aisle and youll see

If youre looking
for truly fresh produce, your best bet is
to go to a farm stand

stands sell fruit that is
not picked-this-morning fresh. But if the
produce is labeled as
locally grown, it probably is fresh.
I asked a colleague
for some advice.
Dr. Michelle Hauser is a certified chef,
nutrition educator and
a clinical fellow in
medicine at Harvard
Medical School. She
explains that grocery
store produce may be
picked unripe so it can
be stored for months.
Then it may be artificially speed-ripened
on its way to the grocery shelf. As a result,
it may be less nutritious than naturally
matured fruits and
Produce destined
for the freezer aisle is
picked when ripe. It
may be briefly cooked
in hot water and frozen
in or near the fields.
This helps preserve its
nutritional value.So,
dont worry too much
about whether your
produce is fresh or frozen. If stocking up on
frozen fruits and vegetables helps you get
your five-to-nine daily
servings, stick with it.

Tracey said that due to the potential timeline of the lives of
those affected, any wish fulfillment needs to take place under
a hasty deadline. There are all kinds of things we have to look
into before we can grant a wish, said Tracey. That includes
making sure that they have Medicare in the areas they are
visiting should they need medical care while they are there.
Any wish is possible as long as they fit into our guidelines
and are granted within the 48 continental United States, she
noted. We also need to confirm their health status with their
doctor. Can they travel? Can they still get around? Do they
drive? We want to make sure that the wish is realistic for them.
We want to make a positive impact on them. If there are other
concerns, we might suggest alternative wish suggestions.
Tracey is starting her 20th year of employment by
Community Health Professionals. She has worked for the
Angel Foundation for the past eight years. For most of her
childhood, she was raised in Payne but spent the last couple
of years of her schooling with her family, who had moved to
Convoy. She attended Vantage Vocational School and graduated from Crestview High School. From there she attended the
University of Northwest Ohio in Lima where she received an
associates administrative assistants degree.
In 1996, she was hired by Donna Grimm to work for
the well-established health professional agency. In addition
to working for Make-A-Wish Foundation, she coordinates
the Angel Foundation, backs up phone calls, trouble-shoots
issues, creates forms for nursing and agency use and takes care
of credentialing for the workers insurance contracts.
Tracey smiled when she stated that she periodically finds
herself following role-model Grimm in her various tasks.
I tend to respect a lot of the things she taught me over the
years, observed Tracey. Its very fast-paced here. I love my
job. There is so much variety; I start out working on one thing
and end up working on something else.
I get calls for wishes that are very time sensitive. I really have to drop everything and get going on it, continued
Tracey. Everyones wish is very individual, very special to
that person. They want to go to a special place that brings

Answers to Fridays questions:

The U.S. enact the first whistle-blower protection law in July 1778, just two years after signing
the Declaration of Independence. The action by the
Continental Congress was sparked by the arrest of
two seamen for signing a petition that led to the
suspension of the Continental Navys commander in
chief for torturing British prisoners.
