FORT JENNINGS —Dr. Wess Klir is a lover of history and heritage. Thisis why he and many othersstrived to save the historicJennings Memorial Hall. Itwas built in 1916 to serveas a municipal building,civic center and a memorialto those who fought in theWar of 1812. The buildingwas constructed thanks tofinancial support from thetownship, the village andthe state. The building isremembered mostly for host-ing wedding receptions andhigh school proms. The hallalso used to be home to thelibrary and an abundance of memories. However, whenthe American Legion wasbuilt, most weddings weremoved out, the library wasmoved to the old school andthe building closed.“The doors were closedand it essentially just satcompletely unused exceptfor various storage,” Klirsaid.In 2011, Klir felt called todo something for the build-ing that used to be full of life. However, five years of vacancy would make it adaunting task.“The whole building need-ed remodeling. Not just smallrepairs. It was something thatneeded to be more than justgovernment assistance; itneeded to be more. It neededvolunteers,” he said.One of the biggest inspi-rations came from the bicen-tennial.“It was a big task but thebicentennial garnered excite-ment to get the work done.With celebrating a town thathas its foundations in the Warof 1812 and having a build-ing built to honor those whofought in that war, it is hardto imagine a festival to com-memorate a 200th anniver-sary when this building isn’tbeing used for anything,” hesaid. “So, with more thanfive years of no upkeep anda wreck of a building, thebicentennial and a desire tosee life brought back to thisbuilding, our group of dedi-cated people got together toget this project done. Thisbuilding has the history wewant for this festival.”As with any project oneof the biggest concerns ismoney.“It didn’t cost the townanything,” Klir proudly stat-ed. “The 20 or so of us havebeen working off donationsand volunteers. It is all dedi-cations and all hard work.”The Historic JenningsMemorial Hall will host anarray of events during theFort Jennings Bicentennialcelebration. Klir said thehall’s future beyond the eventlay with the community.“My goal is to have some-thing presentable to the com-munity, then the communitycan evaluate it for them-selves. We want people tohelp decide what the futureshould be. We hope that allwill have a use for it. It isall for not if this buildingisn’t used. We want to seeit continue to live past justone weekend. We will letthe community decide howto do that.”The bicentennial scheduleincludes a heritage dinnerand dance on Friday. Thedinner starts at 6 p.m. withthe dance to follow from 8-10p.m. Tickets are $10 per per-son. A War of 1812 periodband Fiddlesix will providemusic. The buffet will alsoserve food that was com-mon during the War of 1812.Period attire is optional.Throughout the evening,members of the 1812 reen-actment will give the eventa true 1812 feel. The pro-ceeds will go to help providefood for actors. This eventwill be significant as it willbe the first the hall hostsin 30 years. Tickets can bereserved or purchased at thedoor.Saturday at 11 a.m. willbe a rededication with a brief ceremony. The entire facil-ity will be open for pub-lic viewing which includesthe Military Museum. Themuseum will be open Sundayas well.Saturday afternoon, thehall will hold a fort-build-ing contest for children, asthey attempt to redesign theFort Jennings fort as theysee fit. The children will useLincoln log type materials.Digital photos of the fortswill be taken judges willpick the winner.On Saturday evening,the hall will host the GoodOle’ Days Dance. The aimof the dance is to rekindleold memories for those whorecall days of the hall as itstood over 30 years ago.This will be held upstairsand refreshments will beprovided. The band provid-ing the throwback tunes isthe Owls Mixed up Band.According the Klir, thisevent is to relive the past andbring life to the old hall.Admission is free.

Jennings prepares to turn 200
BY ALEX WOODRINGawoodring@delphosherald.com
FORT JENNINGS — FortJennings will celebrate itsbicentennial this weekend, aswell as commemorate the Warof 1812.The village, which borrowsits name from U.S. ColonelWilliam Jennings, was home toa supply fort during the War of 1812. Now, 200 years later, thetown is ready to celebrate itsstoried history and community.The celebration is 200 yearsin the making and took morethan two years in planning.“We started planning forthis over two years ago,” saidone of the head planners, JimDickman. “This isn’t some-thing we threw together; wehave been working on it for along time.”The weekend-long celebra-tion has been the culmination of hard work from Dickman andmany others.“How we planned was byforming committees and eachcommittee was in charge of their specific task,” he said.Dickman also went intomulti-layered reasons for theweekend.“Yes, the main focus andpurpose of the weekend is tocelebrate the 200th anniversaryof our community but also we just want people to have fun.We want anyone from any-where to be able to come andhave a good time. Above all,however, we want to honor thetroops,” he said. “For example,we have a Huey 369 helicopterthat will be on display. Thisis to honor the veterans of theVietnam War and of course thewe want to honor the veteransof the War of 1812 as well asall military conflict.”The Chained Eagles of Ohiowill honor those lost in theVietnam War with the OhioPOW/MIA Vietnam WallDisplay at the old high school,as well. Both of these are togive the veterans of Vietnam“the welcome home they nevergot.”Going back further in histo-ry will be the War of 1812 reen-actment. On Sunday, those inattendance will get the chanceto step back into the year 1812and witness how life was forthose who fought in the secondbattle for independence.“They will really give usa feel for life in the fort thatwas right here in our town,”Dickman stated. “It should befun and interesting.”Other highlights include theMotor Madness Weekend thatwill take place during the bicen-tennial.“They decided that this yearthey would combine MotorMadness with the bicenten-nial,” said Dickman. “That isalways a good time if you are into that sort of thing. There willbe a cruise in Friday and thenSaturday night will be the lawnmower races. Those are crazy.They really go all out on thosethings.”The committee has some-thing special for those whowant to remember the celebra-tion and how it came about.“We wanted to make some-thing that people can buy andtake with them that way theywill have something to remem-ber it by,” said Dickman. “Sowe made a really nice videothat highlights some of the FortJennings heritage.”The video features rare8-mm footage of Fort Jenningsfrom home videos and commer-cials made by local businesses.The DVD also includes inter-views of familiar Fort Jenningsresidents and their stories. Itwill be for sale at the bicenten-nial for $20. The money for thevideo will help fund bringing inthe Huey Helicopter.See the schedule of eventson page 3.

PHILADELPHIA — Anaccreditation warning issuedto Penn State is serious andnecessary given the issuesraised by a recent child sex-abuse scandal, but the schoolis unlikely to lose the all-important designation, expertssaid Tuesday.They also expect the uni-versity to comply quicklywith demands to show thatits governance, finances andintegrity meet standards set byits accreditation agency, theMiddle States Commission onHigher Education.“This is an entirely appro-priate and anticipated action byMiddle States given the strate-gic importance of voluntarypeer review,” said AmericanCouncil on Education presi-dent Molly Corbett Broad.“It’s really the basis onwhich public accountability isachieved in American highereducation.”The Philadelphia-basedMiddle States Commissionissued the warning last weekbased on the school’s han-dling of molestation allega-tions against Jerry Sandusky, aformer assistant football coachconvicted in June of sexuallyabusing 10 boys.Concerns include whetherPenn State trustees providesufficient oversight of theadministration, the strength of the university’s ethical stan-dards and the school’s compli-ance with government poli-cies, such as those requiringcampus crime reports, saidMiddle States spokesmanRichard Pokrass.The commission also wantsthe school to address its finan-cial status in light of a $60million penalty imposed bythe NCAA and any lawsuitsfrom Sandusky’s victims.Penn State must submit areport to the agency by Sept.30. A small team of accreditorswould then visit the school inState College.“The university has beenvery cooperative,” Pokrasssaid Tuesday. “The leader-ship of the university is awareof what the concerns are andhave been taking very positivesteps.”Penn State is now one of about 15 schools in the Mid-Atlantic region with a warn-ing.Most institutions work theirway off warning status withina year to 18 months, Pokrasssaid. Those that don’t are puton probation.Schools lose accreditationafter two years of noncompli-ance, starting with the warning.Students cannot use federalfunds — including Pell grantsand government loans — toattend unaccredited schools.Penn State stressed that itremains accredited and thatacademic programs are notbeing questioned.“This action has nothingto do with the quality of edu-cation our students receive,”Blannie Bowen, vice provostfor academic affairs, said in astatement.

GENEVA (AP) — SyrianPresident Bashar Assad’sforces and pro-governmentshabiha fighters have perpe-trated war crimes and crimesagainst humanity on Syriancivilians, a U.N. expert panelconcluded today in a reportthat provides in chilling detailfurther evidence of a conflictspiraling out of control.The panel appointed bythe U.N.’s 47-nation HumanRights Council blamed thegovernment and allied militiafor the killing of more than100 civilians in the villageof Houla in May, nearly half of them children, and saidthe murders, unlawful killing,torture, sexual violence andindiscriminate attacks “indi-cate the involvement at thehighest levels of the armedand security forces and thegovernment.”The panel also concludedin its final report today tothe Geneva-based councilthat anti-government armedgroups committed war crimes,including murder, extrajudi-cial killings and torture, but ata lesser frequency and scale.Its release came hoursafter a bomb exploded in theSyrian capital of Damascusoutside a hotel where U.N.observers are staying. Thebomb was attached to a fueltruck and wounded at leastthree people, Syrian stateTV reported. Activists alsoreported fighting near thegovernment headquarters andthe Iranian embassy, both inDamascus, along with clashesin different parts of Syria.The expert panel appoint-ed to probe abuses in Syriahas had hardly any access toSyria, with only its chairmanallowed into Damascus. Mostof the report, which coversthe period between Feb. 15and July 20, was conductedduring field interviews and inGeneva with Syrian refugeesoutside the country.The panel conducted 1,062interviews, but emphasizedtheir lack of ability to carryout their U.N. mandate withinSyria hampered their investi-gation.The commission is head-ed by Brazilian diplomatand professor Paulo SergioPinheiro and also includesKaren Koning AbuZayd, aU.S. citizen and former headof UNRWA, the U.N. agencythat aids Palestinian refugees.
