Elderly at higher risk for CO poisoning


BY STEPHANIE GROVES
DHI Media Staff Writer
sgroves@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS As winter continues
its cold, firm grip on the country, the
risk for many types of injuries and ailments linger into the final weeks of the
season, including one very dangerous
risk inside the home - accidental carbon
monoxide (CO) poisoning. The gas has
no color, no odor, no taste and it kills.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
every year CO poisoning sends at least
15,000 Americans to the emergency
room and kills 439 people yearly.
CDC statistics indicates that men
and adults aged 65 years and older were
more likely to die from CO poisoning
than other persons. The higher rate in
men has been attributed to high-risk
behaviors among men, such as working
with fuel-burning tools or appliances.
The higher rate among older persons
has been attributed to the likelihood of
older adults mistaking symptoms of CO

gas is present in their home. (Wire

poisoning for other conditions common
among persons in this age group - influenza-like illnesses or fatigue.
CO deaths are highest during colder
months, likely because of an increased
use of gas-powered furnaces and use
of alternative heating and power sources used during power outages, such
as portable generators, charcoal bri-

quettes, and propane stoves or grills.


Delphos Fire Departments Platoon
Chief Roy Hoehn said he has been on
several calls where carbon monoxide
backed up into a house from a chimney
or an older furnaces heat exchange
cracked sending fumes throughout the
house.
Residents realized the issue and
got out of the house before anyone
suffered poisoning, Hoehn said. We
perform CO checks free of charge for
residents who believe they may have
a CO leak.
CDC statistics from 1999-2004 indicate a total of 139 Ohio residents died
from unintentional, non-fire-related
carbon monoxide poisonings.
On a national level, during that same
time frame, 2,631 people died from
unintentional, non-fire-related carbon
monoxide poisonings and of that number, 628 were age 65 or older.
Prolonged headaches and red
splotchy skin are the two most common
symptoms of CO poisoning, Hoehn
explained. There was a resident that

would be at home and have a headache, leave the house and the headache
would disappear and then hes go back
home and have a headache again.
According to the United States
Consumer Product Safety Commission
(CPSC) the health effects of CO
depend on the concentration and
length of exposure, as well as each
individuals health condition. Most
people will not experience any symptoms from prolonged exposure to CO
levels of approximately 1 to 70 ppm
(parts per million) but some heart
patients might experience an increase
in chest pain.
As CO levels increase and remain
above 70 ppm, symptoms become
more noticeable and can include headache, fatigue and nausea. At sustained
CO concentrations above 150 to 200
ppm, disorientation, unconsciousness
and death are possible.
To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, the CDC recommends:

Home Expo

the surrounding homes and cars, improve


their baseball diamond, and upgrade their
track facilities so the track and field team
can practice at school.
Our school district is very small, said
Treasurer Mark Grone. So a donation like
this means so much to the entire community.

DELPHOS Realtor and Broker Krista Schrader


remembers the WDOH/FFA Home Shows as fun rides
on a shuttle and tables and tables of fliers, brochures and
goodies.
Everyone used to go to the Home Show, she said.
Youd get together with friends and have fun. The whole
community would be in one place and youd get to see
what all the businesses had to offer. My office has felt that
there was something missing between the buyer and seller
and professionals in Delphos.
The last local home show was in 2005 and now
Schrader would like to bring that back to Delphos with
the Schrader Realty Home Expo Sunday at the Delphos
Eagles.
I wanted to put together an expo where all the Delphos
businesses that would be in involved in purchasing, selling, renting and just living in a home would be in one
place, Schrader said. We have a lot of tools and resources here. When someone comes here to buy or rent a home,
we have the businesses here that can take care of most if
not all their needs. We have people who can give advice on
mortgages and perform inspections. We have local banks
and insurance companies. Delphos has a lot to offer.
Participants in the expo include banking institutions,
home improvement companies, accountants, home services companies, retailers and more.
I want people to know that when they buy a home here
in Delphos we have everything they need, Schrader said.
A lot of people go to the Internet for services we offer
right here backed by someone who lives here, too. I want
people to get to know the faces behind our businesses. I
want to keep everything as local as possible.

naloxone without a prescription
as long as a doctors rules are
followed. And it relaxes how
quickly someone administering
the drug would have to call 911,
saying it should be done as soon
as practical instead of requiring
it immediately before or after.
The bill will increase
access to the medication and
allow more funding to go
towards buying naloxone,
the bills Republican sponsors, Rep. Robert Sprague of
Findlay and Rep. Jeff Rezabek
from Clayton, a Dayton suburb, testified earlier this month.
The bill, a priority for House
Republicans, expands availability to the antidote authorized last
year by a law that allows friends
or family members of addicts to
administer the drug without fear
of prosecution. That bill also made
it easier for police and emergency
responders to administer the drug.

County officials meet at Lincolnview Monday to accept the annual PILOT program check for Blue Creek Wind Farm. The over $1
million check will fund various expenses around the county including townships, Council on Aging, Thomas Edison, Tri-County Mental
Health, Brumback Library and OSU Extension. (DHI Media/Ed Gebert)
benefits around.
The opportunities provided by Blue
Creek to Lincolnview Local Schools have
been overwhelmingly positive and exceeded
our expectations, said Lincolnview superintendent Jeff Snyder. This year alone, the
wind farm funds and the Straight A Grant
have enabled our school district to grow from
one with two computer labs in the whole district to one that can provide all 915 students
with an individual computer. That upgrade
has created such a synergy and excitement
with our students, teachers, and parents, as we
are using new instructional techniques every
day in the classroom. In the coming years,
well expand on this growth and collaborate

with local businesses to provide opportunities


for our students and grow the economy here
in Van Wert County.
The approximately $600 million wind
farm was the largest single private investment
in Ohio in 2011 and achieved commercial
operation in June, 2012. Even before the plant
became operational, building Blue Creek created more than 500 construction jobs, $25
million in local spending and put more than 30
Ohio companies to work. Blue Creek [video,
photos, fact sheet] is the largest wind farm in
Ohio and Iberdrola Renewables largest in the
U.S. The total output is 304 megawatts (MW)
and it generates enough electricity to power
76,000 average Ohio homes each year.

NAWIC observes Women in


Construction Week, March 1-7
INFORMATION SUBMITTED
LIMA The National Association of
Women in Construction (NAWIC) will
celebrate Women in Construction (WIC)
Week March 1-7.
NAWICs mission is to enhance the success of women in the construction industry.
The National Association of Women in
Construction is committed to enhancing the
success of all women in construction - not just
those who are NAWIC members, said Sandy
Field, the National President of NAWIC. We
accomplish this through educational opportunities, networking and community/industry
service projects. If you are a woman employed
in any area of the construction industry, we
welcome you to join us!
The focus of WIC Week is to highlight
women as a visible component of the construction industry. It is also a time for local
chapters to give back to their communities. WIC Week provides an occasion for
NAWICs thousands of members across the
country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing
role of women in the industry.
While there are more than one million women employed in the construction
industry, women only comprise approximately 10 percent of the construction
workforce. These women, whether they
are administrative specialists, general contractors, subcontractors, trades people, or

professionals, are vital elements to the


construction process, Field said. Women
in Construction Week is simply a time set
aside to thank those women for all their
efforts toward successful construction projects. WIC Week will also bring attention to
the industry and encourage others to realize
that construction is a viable, profitable
career field.
On March 5, the Lima Ohio Area NAWIC
Chapter #374 will host a safety awareness
workshop on the Bowling Green State
University campus. Members will be donating blood at their local American Red Cross
sometime during the week. To further promote WIC Week, members will be placing
WIC Week signs in front of their businesses
as well as wearing WIC Week buttons.
The Lima Ohio Area NAWIC Chapter
#374 was founded in 2005 and has members representing local construction related
companies such as Charles Construction
Services, Inc., Frost Roofing, Garmann/
Miller Architects, Liberty Developing,
Gilmore Jasion Mahler LTD as well as a
student from Rhodes State College. The
chapter membership spans from Findlay
to Minster and Fort Wayne, Indiana, to
Kenton.
For more information about the Lima
Chapter, Contact Anne Pfleger, North
Central Region Director, at 419-424-9733
or akpnawic@charlesinc.com. Or visit
LimaNAWIC.com.

The Blue Creek Wind Farm also makes


approximately $2 million in annual lease payments to local landowners. Of 28,000 leased
acres of corn, soybean and wheat fields, Blue
Creek occupies less than 200 acres.

VAN WERT Iberdrola Renewables, the


owner and operator of the Blue Creek Wind
Farm, along with State Senator Cliff Hite
presented checks at multiple ceremonies
Monday to local officials in both Van Wert
and Paulding counties to commemorate the
second annual PILOT payments the Blue
Creek Wind Farm will make to the community.
Van Wert County, with 115 turbines, will
receive more than $2,070,000, an amount that
will make the wind farm the largest single
taxpayer in the county. Paulding County will
receive $666,000, based on the 37 turbines
located in the county that each pay $18,000 per
year. Since the payments will be made in two
equal installments this year, the checks presented Monday were for half those amounts.
Todays payments highlight the importance of wind energy to northwestern Ohio.
Harnessing the natural resources available
in our area has attracted good jobs, produced
local economic benefits, and given us energy
security. This wind farm is further proof that
Ohioans benefit when we work to attract new
investment in our rural communities, said
State Senator Cliff Hite (R-Findlay).
The wind farm is spread across two
counties, six townships Tully, Union and
Hoaglin in Van Wert County and Benton,
Blue Creek and Latty in Paulding County
and four school districts. The PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) funds presentations took
place Monday at three locations: the Paulding
County Courthouse and two Van Wert County
schools Lincolnview and Crestview which
have enhanced their educational capabilities
thanks to the wind farm funding.
Todays presentation demonstrates that
new energy investment in northwest Ohio
continues to benefit local farmers and families
and will do so for years to come, said State
Representative Tony Burkley (R-Payne).
This wind farm has already made a positive
and long-lasting impact on these communities by creating jobs that cant be exported,
investing in local education and spreading the

Now, Where Was That?

the amount of nutrients lost from a field.


Cover crops and no-till protect soil from
erosion, increase water infiltration and
reduce the speed and flow of water so that
less nutrients are lost in the surface runoff.
How is soil P stored? Organic P (humus,
active organic matter) tie up 50-80 percent
of soil P in a stable form that can be
made plant available. Aluminum (Al3+),
iron (Fe3+, Fe2+), calcium (Ca2+) and
dissolved reactive P (DRP) are inorganic
forms of P associated with the soil mineralogy. There are two forms of P that are
plant and algae available, exchangeable P
(ExP) from active organic matter and DRP
which is an inorganic form. The ExP has a
longer carbon chain and is less likely to be
lost from the soil profile. Active organic
matter in the ExP comes from live root
exudates and mucilage, microbial wastes
and other carbon sources (ExP > DRP in
soil storage).
Soil organic matter (humus) ties up a
majority of soil P in a stable form compared to the inorganic sources (SOM>Al3+
> Fe3+ > Fe2+ > Ca2+) however SOM
levels have decreased 50-60 percent in the
last 50-100 years due to excessive tillage.
The aluminum, iron and calcium P is not
considered plant available; however, they
can become plant available slowly over
time unless the soil becomes saturated.
Iron is a major element in our soils
and is a major problem in northwest Ohio
soils because it releases the P to surface
water. Under saturated soil conditions,
Fe3+ release DRP quickly and converts to
Fe2+ and when the soil dries out, the Fe2+
converts back to Fe3+ tying up DRP.
How often do you see saturated soils
after a rain in northwest Ohio? When
water is standing on your field, iron is
the bad boy releasing DRP to our creeks,
ditches and streams. Saturated soils are a
common problem due to poor soil structure and soil compaction caused by excess
tillage.
In my next article, looking at possible
solutions, I discuss how no-till and cover
crops improve soil structure, reduce soil
compaction, increase water infiltration,
improve water storage and result in less
water and P runoff. Increased active carbon from live roots improves soil structure
and results in long-term SOM. All these
soil health benefits can save the farmer
money through reduced fertilizer inputs
and increase crop yields over time resulting in improved long-term profits.

percent or less of its capacity of
bulk fuel.
The gross income of eligible
households must be at or below
175 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. For a family of
four, the annual income must be
at or below $41,212.50.
Individuals interested in
receiving Winter Crisis assistance must have a face-to-face
interview at their Winter Crisis
Program provider. Ohioans also
can call the toll-free hotline at

Friday (hearing-impaired customers may dial 800-686-1557
for assistance) or visit energyhelp.ohio.gov for more information.
The
Public
Utilities
Commission of Ohios Winter
Reconnect Order allows residential customers the opportunity to
pay a designated amount to have
their service restored or maintained. Residential customers are
required to pay no more than
$175 to maintain service under
the reconnection order.
If the customers service has
already been disconnected, the

Jays, LadyCats win sectional


openers in different ways

By JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
This, to me, is a good thing.
I refer to the item I came across the other day
regarding the Seattle Seahawks plan to add 1,000 seats
to CenturyLink Field, affectionately known as The
Asylum (what I call it!), due to the increased demand for
tickets from its partisans.
Whats so special about this fact, you may ask.
You may ask it. And I will answer it.
My answer is that the team is not fleecing local taxpayers for the upgrade but is privately funding it out of their
own (very, very, VERY deep) pockets.
Wow!
You mean that people who will never be able to afford
to go to a game there but are great fans nonetheless and
would if they could wont have to foot the bill for those
who can and do?
Or pay for a billionaire to make even more money in
this day and age of the NFL, it is awful hard NOT to make
a huge profit and increase the value of a franchise 100fold, even if you tried! without costing him a dime?
What is the world coming to when taxpayers arent
going to be fleeced? Sheesh!
I dont know if having a professional team even in
the NFL in your city brings in the kinds of revenues to
your citys coffers to justify taxpayers again, many of
whom will never be able to afford to go to a game there or
at any stadium (see a common theme here?) having to
fund stadiums and their upkeep.
Especially when you consider how much revenue each
team receives from TV deals, etc.
From what I have read, its a mixed bag of blessings
and not-so-much blessings at best and at worse, its a
fleecing of those that can least afford it not that anyone
can afford fleecing.
Good for the Seahawks to think about the Little Guy
- or at least the not-so Little Guy - for a change.
A lot of people probably dont remember Jerome
Kersey.
Understood.
He toiled for 11 years for the Portland Trailblazers, certainly not a major media hub in the NBA like Los Angeles,
New York or Chicago, and 17 years all told for various
teams in The League.

OTTAWA When tournament basketball rolls around, all that matters is


survival to play another day.
The St. Johns and Kalida girls basketballers did just that Wednesday night
at the Division IV Ottawa-Glandorf
Sectional, though in different ways.
The Lady Blue Jays needed to go
overtime against McComb and dominated the extra four minutes 14-1 to seize a
52-39 victory in game 1.
The LadyCats didnt have much
drama, swamping Van Buren 54-24 in
the nightcap.
Those two advance to take on each other
Saturday night at approximately 8 p.m.
In the opener, the Jays (9-14) overcame a 31-18 third-period deficit to
force overtime tied at 38. That extra four
minutes was all Blue and Gold. Lexie
Hays (16 markers, 4 boards) hit a 3-ball
from the right wing just 20 ticks into it
and off they went, fueling the attack by
forcing four miscues. She followed with
a drive and Sydney Fischbach (5 boards)
put in a basket to extend the lead. Rachel
Pohlman hit a pair of free throws, Hays
a deuce and Jessica Geise (11 counters)
a toss to make it 50-38 with less than
1:30 left. Jenna Herr (5 boards, 5 blocks)
scored a freebie at 1:16 for the Panthers
only points of the the OT and Fischbach
closed it with a pair of singles.
The Jays trailed 22-15 to end the
first half and with Nora Hemminger
(22 counters, 5 boards, 5 steals) being
a 1-girl gang attacking the basket, her
basket midway through the third put the
Panthers up 31-18. Back came the Jays
as their defense forced four turnovers in
the last minutes of the period (25 total)
and when Geise hit a pair from the line
at 18 ticks, they were within 30-24.
The Jays defense continued to lead the
way as they continued their rally in earnest
in the fourth period. They forced seven
more errors and allowed only Hemminger
to score (8 markers). On the other end,
they battled back and took their first lead
of the night at 4:00 on a Geise bomb.
From there, there was two lead changes.
Hemminger tied the score at 38 on two
free throws with 16.4 ticks left. A trade of

turnovers down the stretch followed and
Fischbachs last-second layup try was a
tick too late before the horn to force OT.
We just turned it on when we got
down. We were stagnant and on our heels
for 2 1/2 quarters and we were down,
Jays mentor Dan J. Grothouse noted. We
just started making plays: someone would
hit a basket, wed get a defensive stop
and now all of a sudden, were back into
the game. That was the key; simply making more plays and being the aggressors
instead of letting them be aggressive.
With the tourney trail starting, both
teams were expected to have their firstgame jitters and they did. The Panthers
settled down earlier as they took the lead
from the start on a triple by Kara Reigle
and their 1-3-1 defense stymied the Jays
and forced five turnovers (21 for the
game) and 4-of-11 shooting. Jenna Herr
(5 blocks, 7 boards) caused the Jays grief
inside on defense. A Herr single at 1:13

gave them a 14-6 edge before a trifecta


by Emilee Grothouse from the right corner at 10 ticks got the Jays within 14-9.
Both teams struggled offensively
or the defenses ruled, whatever ones
perspective the second period, combining for a 6-of-17 span and totaling
nine miscues. The Jays were within 14-11
early on a Hays basket and again at 18-15
on a 3-point play by Rebekah Fischer at
1:17. Hemminger laid one in at 33 ticks
and drove for a deuce at 4.1 ticks to get
her team a 22-15 halftime spread.
Hemminger was a tough matchup
for us; she penetrated at will. Cutting
her off more the second half by being
more active with help was crucial for us
coming back, Coach Grothouse added.
Tournament time is about winning and
moving on. It doesnt have to look good;
it just has to be effective.

I do remember him because I used to


be a huge fan of the NBA I still am
but not like I was. I just refuse to see a
great game be ruined by a lack of fundamental basketball which is the lament
of many a pundit that cover this game a
lot more than I do.
To show my age, I can remember when
the NBA Finals were on CBS and they
were tape-delayed until 11:30 p.m. For an
example, I was watching when the Magic
Johnson-led LA Lakers beat Philadelphia
in Game 6 in the 1980 Finals!

He was not a superstar at all in those

champion needs that helped the NBA
slowly become the League it is now.
Just a quick comment on the letter
that two Congressmen wrote to NFL

Commissioner Roger Goodell regarding


clarifying if a team can lose draft picks,
for example, for not taking domestic
violence seriously.
I have no problem with them as individuals expressing concern a right we
all have as citizens and its a problem we
all should be worried about but leave
it at that.
I try to not be political in this column as much as possible but guys
and ladies take care of your OWN
homes. You arent doing what youre
SUPPOSED to do, so take care of that
first before you try to fix someone else.

(Continued from page 8)

Overall, McComb finished 13-of-38 from the


field (1-of-6 long range) for
34.2 percent and 12-of-18
at the stripe (75%); stashed
25 boards (7 offensive); and
added 13 fouls.
St. Johns ended up 19-of40 from the field (5-of-11
from deep) for 47.5 percent
and 9-of-14 singles (64.3%);
secured 32 off the glass (10
offensive); and 14 fouls.
In the second game,
Kalidas defense dominated the Lady Black Knights
(6-17), limiting them to
25-percent shooting (8-of-32,
including 2-of-12 beyond the
arc) in pulling away late.
It started from the word
go as the Knights turned it
over on their first five possessions (22 total). The
LadyCats (18-5) didnt exactly light the scoreboard up,
shooting 4-of-14. However, it
was effective enough. When
Kylie Osterhage (12 counters)
drilled a 3-ball from the top of
the key at 1:21, they led 11-5.
The LadyCat full-court
pressure in various forms
and half-court man-toman continued to make life
miserable for the Knights
in the second period, forcing 2-of-9 shooting. On the
other end, the Maroon and
White had their own struggles as they couldnt quite
put away the Knights. When
Joni Kaufman dropped a triple from the left corner at
25 ticks, their lead reached
20-11.
Neither team could find

points from Mangas during


the run, including a deep
3-pointer, along with four
points from Landin.
It wasnt pretty. Our effort
was pretty good but we didnt
execute very well defensively
with what I was trying to do,
but weve got a couple of
days to fix it, Ottoville coach
Dave Klemen said. We were
not finishing at the basket
when we got turnovers and
chance to finish at the basket.
This is the third time we have
played them and they were
out there fighting us.
The season comes to
a close for Fort Jennings,
which ends at 2-21.
We came out hard and
ready to play, but right out
of the gate we got down
10 points, Jennings coach
Rhonda Liebrecht noted.
We stayed in it, and we
missed some easy bunnies
that could brought it down
to an easy range. Im really
proud of my seniors. They
keep playing hard and Im
proud of them. Its been a
struggle with who is going to
be the go-to girl for scoring.
The Lady Green had two
players in double figures
as Landin scored a gamehigh 15 points and Mangas
chipped in with 14 points.
Fort Jennings got seven
points from Wittler and six
points from Louth.

first half but we shored that


up. Our full-court defense
was OK as well. When you
hold a team to 24 points,
thats pretty good.
Van Buren closed at 6-of17 foul shots (35.3%); and
nabbed 25 boards (12 offensive) as Kylie Sturgill had
six.

Kalidas Brittany Kahle lays one in before a Van Buren defender can get there in Wednesdays nightcap at O-G. (DHI

the mark early in the third
canto, with Kalidas leaddown to 20-12 when Lauren
Wise hit a free toss at the
6-minute mark. Slowly,
Kalida began to pull away
as their defense fueled the
surge. When Osterhage hit a
10-footer in the paint at 16
ticks, they led 33-19.
To start the fourth, Van
Buren had no choice but to
come out of its 2-3 matchup
zone and go straight man, as
well as extend into a trapping full-court scheme. That
suited the LadyCats just fine
even as the game was
marred by fouls as they
turned the game into a rout
with a 21-point stanza and
the benches emptied for both
units.
It was a combination of
both everybody having first-

game jitters and Van Burens


defense getting into our faces
and making it difficult for us.
We havent been handling
that lately, Kalida coach
Adam Huber explained. I
liked how my veteran team
responded as the game wore
on.
Kalida ended up the game
shooting 18-of-50 shooting,
6-of-16 from beyond the
arc, for 36 percent; 12-of-25
at the line (48%); secured
37 boards (14 offensive) as
Allison Recker finished off
a double-double with 10
markers and 12 boards; and
amassed 15 miscues.
Our defense was mostly
solid. We mixed it up quite
a bit with our pressure and it
got better as we went, Huber
added. I thought we broke
down a little bit too much the

Thatcher, McCleery lift


Lancers to sectional final
BY BRIAN BASSETT
DHI Media Correspondent
news@delphosherald.com
VAN WERT Its tough to explain how the Lincolnview
girls basketball teams sectional-opener win over Hamler
Patrick Henry unfolded Wednesday evening at Van Wert High
School.
The Lady Lancers took an early lead and controlled a
majority of the first half and a large part of the third quarter.
Then, almost instantly, Lincolnview (14-9) found itself trailing
by six with a minute to play in the third, before eventually
coasting to a 41-30 win.
One constant throughout was the play of senior guard Julia
Thatcher, who scored 20 points for the Lady Lancers, and
added five rebounds.
Julia, we kind of take her for granted, admitted Lincolnview
coach Dan Williamson. She puts up 20 and its almost like we
expect if out of her. She played a whale of a game.
Thatcher opened the game with a pair of jump shots to give
Lincolnview an early 4-0 lead. The scoring slowed down significantly after that, however, as both teams struggled to find
a rhythm, offensively.
Patrick Henry (6-17) shot only 29 percent (4-of-14) in the
first half, and Lincolnview was not much better, with a 33-percent clip (5-of-15).
We couldnt really get into a flow on either end of the
floor, offensively or defensively, in the first half. (Patrick
Henry) hit some shots, which kept them in the game, continued Williamson.
In fact, it was long-range shots that kept the Lady Patriots in
the game. Patrick Henry failed to convert a 2-point field goal in
the opening half, going 4-of-6 from 3-point range.
Thatcher hit a pair of threes herself in the second quarter alone. She opened the period with one to give the Lady
Lancers a 11-4 lead before senior guard Heather Gibson countered for the Lady Patriots.
Minutes later, Thatcher traded threes with sophomore guard
Katie Wagner to make the score 14-10.
Another Gibson trey and a single free throw from each
team sent a suddenly highly-contested game into halftime with
Lincolnview leading 15-14.
We knew they could shoot the ball very well from the outside, Williamson said of the Lady Patriots.
However, after junior forward Ashton Bowersock opened
the second half with a jump shot for Lincolnview, it was
Patrick Henrys inside game that stemmed the tide.
Sophomore center Courtney Rosebrook answered with
a basket at the 6:08 mark of the third quarter, and recorded
another on the ensuing possession.
Two more unanswered Lady Patriot baskets, both in the
paint, gave Patrick Henry a 22-17 lead with 3:47 to play in the
third and forced a Lady Lancer timeout.
The Lady Patriot lead grew to as many a six points, 26-20,
with just over two minutes to play in the third thanks to another
Rosebrook basket.
A huge Thatcher 3-pointer sandwiched between two equally huge layups from senior point guard Hannah McCleery
returned the lead, 27-26, to Lincolnview just as quickly as it
had been erased to end the third quarter.
While the offensive surge by the senior backcourt was nice,
Williamson had another reason for Lincolnviews ability to
reclaim the lead.
Defense, he said. We got one stops, defensively. Then
we were able to push the tempo, push the transition a little bit.
Were a much better team when we get out in run a little bit.
The tempo favored Lincolnview into the fourth as well. The
Lady Lancers got an old-fashioned 3-point play from Thatcher
to open the fourth and really never looked back, converting
five-of-six free-throw attempts down the stretch.
Bowersock scored a quiet 11 points to compliment
Thatchers 20 on the night.
McCleery accounted for eight points after missing a large
part of the first half due to foul trouble. Williamson explained
that the senior point guards presence on the floor is invaluable
to his team.
I think the key to the first half was having Hannah
McCleery out with the fouls, he said. In the second half
she was an animal out there. She set the tone offensively and
defensively. She got some steals, forced (Patrick Henry) to
play a little bit faster than they wanted to. She was the difference tonight.
With the win the Lady Lancers advance to take on the
Ottoville Lady Green on Saturday evening at Van Wert High
School.

a day. The last thing I want after work


is to go online. Before Facebook took
over my social circle, this wasnt a
problem. But now all my friends and
family are on the site and pressuring
me to do likewise.
Gradually, Facebook contact
seems to be replacing real, physical
get-togethers. Things that used to be
done in person or over the phone are
now all done on Facebook, and we
rarely get together anymore. If I dont
check Facebook, I am out of the loop.
If I suggest getting together, everyone is busy -- busy on Facebook,
I guess. They arent mad at me or
avoiding me, they just want contact
on their terms. Am I the only one having this problem? -- OLD-SCHOOL
IN CHAMPAIGN, ILL.
DEAR OLD-SCHOOL: Im sure
youre not the only one. The Internet
is supposed to be a tool to facilitate
communication, not a substitute for
real, flesh-and-blood relationships.
If you cant work out a compromise
with your friends and family -- say,

Ask Mr. Know-it-all

ly passed away. It was unexpected.


He was my sunshine and my heart. I
am devastated. Because of this, I am
no longer sure I want to have a traditional wedding. It would be too sad to
not share the day with Dad, as I had
dreamed. My fiance and I have discussed eloping, and it seems like the
right idea.
The trouble with eloping, however, is that wed want our parents and
siblings there as witnesses, and wed
like a party for friends and extended
family after the nuptials. People are
telling me THATS not eloping, and
they have been looking forward to attending our wedding.
In the midst of my grief, Im not
sure how to respond to their comments. What should I do? -- FATHERLESS BRIDE IN MISSISSIPPI
DEAR FATHERLESS BRIDE:
If you would prefer your nuptials to
be a small, intimate affair, thats what
they should be. Have a reception later.
Whether others were looking forward
to attending your wedding is beside

DEAR ABBY: I have a neighbor who is always asking to borrow


things. The items come back only if
I go and collect them -- from food
items like spices, to gasoline, cash and
more. The situation is almost comical,
like Simpson vs. Flanders. How can I
make my stuff less available without
outright saying no? -- FLANDERS
OF SPRINGFIELD, MAINE
DEAR FLANDERS: And what
is wrong with just saying no? When
someones generosity is abused, thats
the most logical thing to do. And
without being nasty, you should tell
your neighbor the reason why.

Bening.
Q: Do you have
any idea what John
L e n n o n s
middle
name was?
When and
where was
he born? -U.G., Waycross, Ga.
A: John
Winston Lennon was
born in Liverpool on
Oct. 9, 1940. However, after his marriage
to Yoko Ono in 1969,
he changed his name
to John Ono Lennon.
On Dec. 9, 1980, the
former Beatle was
assassinated by Mark
Chapman
outside
The Dakota apartment building. Lennon was shot four
times.
Q:
Basketball
great Walt Frazier
was
nicknamed
Clyde. Why? -K.K., Middleboro,
Mass.
A: He wore a
wide-brim hat similar to one worn by
Warren Beatty in
the movie Bonnie
and Clyde. Frazier played with the

New York Knicks


(1967-77) and the
Cleveland Cavaliers
(1977-80). He was
inducted into
basketballs
Hall of Fame
in 1987.
Q: In an
English newspaper headline,
there
was a story
about
twitchers.
What are twitchers?
-- E.B., Melbourne,
Fla.
A: The British
version of dedicated
bird-watchers.
My dictionary says
the word is not synonymous with bird
watcher but a special breed dedicated
to sightings of rare
birds.
Q: How did the
term to get fired
come about when
you lose your job? -T.V., Payette, Idaho
A: There are several
explanations.
The one I like best
goes that when the
villagers wanted to
get rid of someone,
as in evict them from
their village, they
would burn down

their house. Presumably the now-homeless person would get


the hint that he was
no longer wanted and
would then move to
another village.
Q: A historical
novel Im reading refers to Fort Dallas. I,
of course, assume we
are in Texas, but turns
out it is in Florida. Is
the author correct? -S.I.L., Brookhaven,
Miss.
A: Fort Dallas
was established in
1836 along the banks
of the Miami River
in what is now downtown Miami, Fla.
Q: In the 1980s,
T o m
Hanks first
starring
role was a
TV show

A: The show aired
from 1980 to 1982,
with Hanks playing
Kip/Buffy Wilson,
while Peter Scolari

played the role of


Henry/Hildegarde
Desmond.
Scolari
went on to play Michael Harris on Newhart, while Hanks
established himself
quite well.
Q: The Miracle on Ice refers
to when a bunch of
American college ice
hockey players defeated the powerful
Soviet Union team
during the Winter
Olympics in Lake
Placid. What was the
score? What was the
date of the game? -T.J., Willmar, Minn.
A: On Feb. 22,
1980, the U.S. defeated
the
Soviet Union
4-3.

Did you know Monday and Tuesday are the best days of the week to fill up on gas? Statistically, gas prices rise by Wednesday as demand is calculated and prices are changed to reflect it,
so get to the pumps at the beginning of the week. While youre at it, dont fill up when youre
nearly out of gas. A gas tank that is half-full has less air inside the tank, so it helps minimize
evaporation as youre filling up. Less evaporation means more fuel staying inside the tank, so
you get the real value of the gas that youre paying for.

Ohios Strickland to focus US


Senate bid on opportunity
COLUMBUS (AP) Democrat Ted
Strickland says his run for the U.S.
Senate seat held by Republican Rob
Portman will focus on expanding job
and educational opportunities for average people that have been denied by
GOP policies in Washington and Ohio.
Strickland formally announced his
bid Wednesday, instantly escalating
attacks on his record as Ohios governor
and at a liberal Washington think tank.
His entry adds a formidable statewide
name to what is expected to be one of
the most watched and expensive of next
years Senate races.
The 73-year-old Strickland said his
campaign will focus on going back to
basics, such as creating living-wage
jobs, investing in job-creating local
infrastructure projects and making college accessible and affordable.
The average family in Ohio understands that Washington and Wall Street
are really doing very well while they are
just struggling to keep their noses above
water, he said in an Associated Press
interview. I want to go to the Senate
and be a strong, outspoken, aggressive
advocate for working people. I dont see
Sen. Portman doing that. In fact, I think

Computer program
bests humans at
Space Invaders
WASHINGTON
(AP)
Computers already have
bested human champions in
Jeopardy! and chess, but
artificial intelligence now has
gone to master an entirely new
level: Space Invaders.
Google scientists have cooked
up software that can do better
than humans on dozens of Atari
video games from the 1980s,
like video pinball, boxing, and
Breakout. But computers dont
seem to have a ghost of a chance
at Ms. Pac-Man.
The aim is not to make
video games a spectator sport,
turning couch potatoes who
play games into couch potatoes
who watch computers play
games. The real accomplishment: computers that can teach
themselves to succeed at tasks,
learning from scratch, trial and
error, just like humans.
The computer program,
called Deep Q-network,
wasnt given much in the
way of instructions to start,
but in time it did better than
humans in 29 out of 49 games
and in some cases, like video
pinball, it did 26 times better, according to a new study
released Wednesday by the
journal Nature. Its a first time
an artificial intelligence program bridged different type of
learning systems, said study
author Demis Hassabis of
Google DeepMind in London.
Deep Q can learn and
adapt to unexpected things,
Hassabis said in a news conference. These types of systems are more human-like in
the way they learn.
In the submarine game
Seaquest, Deep Q came up
with a strategy that the scientists had never considered.
Its definitely fun to see
computers discover things that
you didnt figure out yourself,
said study co-author Volodymyr
Mnih, also of Google.
Sebastian Thrun, director
of the Artificial Intelligence
Laboratory at Stanford
University, who wasnt part of
the research, said in an email:
This is very impressive. Most
people dont understand how
far (artificial intelligence) has
come. And this is just the
beginning.

hes been rather passive.


Portman fired back that voting for
Strickland in 2016 would represent a
step backward for the state, which had
heavy job losses during Stricklands
time as governor, which ended with his
defeat to Republican John Kasich in
2010.
The coming months will give
Ohioans an opportunity to contrast my
vision for a better future for Ohio workers with his past tenure as governor
when hundreds of thousands of jobs disappeared from our state, Portman said
in a statement. Ill continue fighting
every day to expand opportunities for
all Ohioans, working with both parties
to reduce barriers to job growth and to
create better paying jobs.
Portman, 59, was elected to Congress
seven times and is a former White
House budget chief and U.S. trade representative. He won the 2010 election
with 57 percent of the vote and, as
of December, reported $5.8 million on
hand. Hes already lined up endorsements from some 250 Republicans
across the state, including Kasich and
U.S. House Speaker John Boehner.
Some conservatives want to see

Portman draw a primary opponent after


he announced in 2013 that he now supports same-sex marriage.
Portmans campaign on Wednesday
launched a website called Retread Ted,
which focuses on the negative economic
news from Stricklands governorship.
The Ohio Republican Party was also
prepared for the announcement, activating a site called Ted Failed Ohio.
Strickland, an ordained Methodist minister who spent a decade in Congress,
defended his record as governor. He said
the Ohio job losses came amid a deep
recession that rocked not only Ohio but also
the entire country, and the states economy
was in an upturn when he left office.
That Great Recession was caused,
in large part, by Wall Street, by greed,
and by the powerful looking out for
themselves at the expense of average
people, he said, and so I am more than
willing to defend what I did as governor
to stabilize this state.
Stricklands recent work for the
Center for American Progress led to
criticism by Ohio groups representing
coal interests and gun-rights advocates.
Both opposed the centers stands on
national issues.

Lawsuit filed against Purina


claims food sickens, kills dogs
SAN FRANCISCO (AP)
A dog owner has filed
a lawsuit against a pet food
company alleging that thousands of dogs have been sickened or died from eating a
brand of dry dog food.
Pet owner Frank Lucido
filed the suit on Feb. 5 in U.S.
District Court in the Northern
District of California against
Nestle
Purina
PetCare
Company, saying he fed his
three dogs Beneful kibble
style dog food, and within a
short period of time, two were
sick and one was dead.
The suit alleges the food
contains propylene glycol,
which it says is an animal
toxin used in automobile antifreeze, and mycotoxins, a
group of toxins produced by
fungus that occurs in grains.
Purina says Beneful is
perfectly safe. The Food and
Drug Administration has not
issued any warnings about the
product.
But Lucido alleges that
in the past four years, there
have been more than 3,000
complaints online about dogs
becoming ill or dying after
eating Beneful, with the com-

Funds
help Buick brands rebirth
DETROIT (AP) Buick, the brand
that once was the pace car for the drive to
the senior center, has made a comeback
by appealing to buyers not yet ready for
retirement.
U.S. sales rose 11 percent in 2014.
In China, Buicks biggest market, sales
gained almost 14 percent.
This week, strong showings in two
influential quality surveys are bringing
good publicity to a nameplate that was
inches from the grave when its parent company, General Motors was in bankruptcy
six years ago.
On Wednesday, Buick finished second
to perennial winner Lexus in the annual
dependability rankings by J.D. Power and
Associates. A day earlier, it was the first
U.S. brand to crack the top 10 in Consumer
Reports magazines annual rankings, finishing seventh. The Buick Regal midsize
car even bested the BMW 328i for top
sports sedan honors from the magazine.
It is all part of a turnaround at Buick led
by some creative television ads, updated
cars and the almost perfectly timed debut
of the Buick Encore, a new small SUV
that hit showrooms two years ago just as
consumers were abandoning cars in favor
of higher-sitting vehicles.
Buick has been on J.D. Powers top 10
brand list for long-term reliability every
year for the past decade, even winning

top honors in 2007 and 2009. This year,


the firm surveyed original owners of 2012
models. That helped Buick because all
but one of its 2012 models had been in
production for at least a year, and older
models tend to have fewer problems than
new ones, said Dave Sargent, J.D. Powers
global automotive vice president.
Also, Buick has older customers than
other brands, and they tend to take better care of cars and complain less than
younger buyers, Sargent said. All General
Motors brands, which share many components, have seen reliability improvements
for seven straight years, he said.
Despite the gains, Buick has not
returned to its heyday. U.S. sales of
229,000 last year were less than one-third
of the 942,000 vehicles sold in 1984. And
while the average age of a Buick buyer has
fallen to 59, its still eight years older than
the average for a U.S. car buyer, according
to Kelley Blue Book.
In the J.D. Power survey, Lexus owners reported only 89 problems per 100 vehicles. Buick owners reported 110, followed by
Toyota at 111 and Cadillac at 114, while Honda
and Porsche tied for fifth pace with 116.
The industry average was 147 problems. Fiat was the worst performing brand,
with 273 problems per 100 vehicles. Land
Rover, Jeep, Mini and Dodge rounded out
the bottom five performers.

Spacewalking astronaut safe


after water leaks into helmet

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) A spacewalking astronaut ended up with unwanted water in his helmet Wednesday after breezing through a cable and lube job outside the
International Space Station.
The leak was scarily reminiscent of a near-drowning outside the orbiting complex nearly
two years ago.
This time, the amount of water was relatively small essentially a big blob of water floating inside Terry Virts helmet. In the summer of 2013, another spacewalking astronauts helmet
actually flooded. He barely made it back inside.
Virts was never in any danger, Mission Control stressed, and he never reported any water
during his 6 hours outside.
This was the second spacewalk in five days for NASA astronauts Virts and Butch Wilmore,
who encountered no trouble while routing cables for future American crew capsules, due to
arrive in a couple years.
Three spacewalks had been planned, with the next one Sunday, but its status was uncertain
given Wednesdays mishap. Managers will meet Friday, as planned, to discuss the situation.
Wednesdays spacewalk had just ended and the two astronauts were inside the air lock, with
the hatches closed, when the incident occurred. The air lock was being repressurized when Virts
first noticed the water. He said he reported it about a minute later.
The absorbent pad inside the back of Virts helmet was damp, but not saturated, said Italian
astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, one of the stations six crew members. The pad became standard procedure after the 2013 emergency.
Cristoforetti removed Virts helmet and wiped his face with a towel once he was out of the
air lock and reunited with his colleagues. She noted that his neck was wet and cold.
The water cold to the touch with a chemical taste most likely came from the suits
cooling system, the source of the leak in 2013. Mission Control described the amount of water
as minor, at least compared with 2013.

CO

(Continued from page 1)

Every year, have a qualified technician check heating systems, water heaters, and other gas-, oil-, or coal-burning
appliances;
Install battery-operated carbon monoxide detectors in homes and change the
batteries when you change the clocks for
daylight-saving time;
Seek medical attention if you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning is the
cause of your dizziness or nausea;
Never use generators, camp stoves,
charcoal grills, or any other gas- or
oil-burning device inside the home or
outside the home near a window;
Never run a motor vehicle inside the
garage, even if the garage door is open;
Never burn anything in a fireplace
or stove that is not vented to the outside;
and
Never heat a house with a gas oven.
The CPSC reports about 170 people
in the United States die every year from
CO produced by non-automotive consumer products. These products include

malfunctioning fuel-burning appliances


such as furnaces, ranges, water heaters and room heaters; engine-powered
equipment such as portable generators;
fireplaces; and charcoal that is burned in
homes and other enclosed areas.
The CPSC recommends that one CO
alarm be installed into a plug-in receptacle or high on the wall in the hallway
outside the bedrooms in each separate
sleeping area of the home. Hard wired or
plug-in CO alarms should have battery
backup. People should avoid locations
that are near heating vents or that can
be covered by furniture or draperies.
Installing CO alarms in a kitchen or
above fuel-burning appliances is not
recommended.
If a CO alarm signal sounds do not
try to find the source, immediately move
outside to fresh air and call emergency
services, the fire department or 911.
Perform a head count to check that all
persons are accounted for. Do not reenter the premises until the emergency
services responders permit re-entry. If
the source of the CO is determined to

be a malfunctioning appliance, do not


operate that appliance until it has been
properly serviced by trained personnel.
Most of our calls are from residents whos carbon monoxide detectors
have sounded an alarm, Hoehn said.
Ninety-nine percent of them have data
stacked in them - the detector collects
readings over an extended time frame
and when it peaks at the point where
it would go off, it does - and sends a
warning alarm.
Hoehn said many people dont know
they should reset/clear their CO detectors once a year by pulling out the battery pack and setting the alarm outside
for 72 hours.
If a CO detector or smoke detector is 10 years old, its time to throw
it away and buy a replacement, Hoehn
added. We still have free smoke detectors here at the station for Delphos residents if they need one.
For a free CO check, call 419-6952911.

plaints showing consistent


symptoms, including stomach and related internal bleeding, liver malfunction or failure, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, weight loss, seizures
and kidney failure.
In a statement, Purina said
there are no quality issues
with Beneful, and dog owners could continue feeding it
to their pets without any concern.
Like other pet foods,
Beneful is occasionally the
subject of social media-driven misinformation, the company said in its statement.
On-line postings often contain false, unsupported and
misleading allegations that
cause undue concern and confusion for our Beneful customers.
The FDA has approved the
use of propylene glycol as
an additive in human food
and animal feed, and Purina
screens its grain to prevent
mycotoxins from getting into
its products, company spokesman Keith Schopp said.
In a statement, the FDA
said it does not comment on
pending litigation.
