Courts get much-needed facelift
BY ALEX WOODRINGawoodring@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — The tenniscourts at Stadium Park arecurrently under renovationswith plans to finish within theweek or early next week.The $19-20,000 project isbeing funded by a non-profitparks group called DelphosParks, Inc.“The majority of ourfunds come from the adver-tising banners on the baseballdiamonds during the sum-mer. We also accept dona-tions from individuals andor businesses,” said DelphosParks, Inc., president DanGrothouse. “This is one of the biggest projects we havedone on our own.”The group looks at all theparks in the area and work onan “as-needed” basis. Otherworks by group includesproviding funds for drink-ing fountains, donations tothe Stadium Club projects,Kiwanis projects, baseball/football field maintenance,local charity events, etc.“We know that the ten-nis courts were deterioratingand with the July 4 celebra-tion being held on the courts,we thought now was thetime to get this done,” saidGrothouse.The renovations include arepaving, repainting and seal-ing cracks.“There were some bigcracks in the courts that need-ed fixed,” said Delphos Parksand Recreation DepartmentSuperintendent CraigMansfield. “They have fin-ished the sealing and are nowfilling those cracks.”The work is being done by thesame group out of Indianapolisthat did the Garfield Park bas-ketball courts. Due to travelexpenses, Delphos and FortJennings Park Board workedtogether to time up the tenniscourt renovations.“This way they will travelfor both projects and not justfor one then another,” saidMansfield.Tennis players will noticea clear difference not onlydue to the improvements tothe courts.“We are changing thecolor scheme as well,” saidMansfield. “When they finishpainting it will be a blue andgreen color scheme now.”Mansfield and Grothouseboth estimated the last timethe courts saw renovationswere mid- to late-90s.The Parks and RecreationDepartment is also current-ly working on regular poolmaintenance and footballfield upkeep.

CHICAGO — The publicteachers’ strike that has halt-ed classwork and upset fam-ily routines across Chicagoground into a third day todaywith some movement reportedby union and school boardnegotiators but no sign of animminent deal.Union leaders said theywill meet today morning toreview a new, comprehensiveproposal from school boardnegotiators that addresses allthe issues still on the table.The board has requested eithera written response or a com-prehensive counterproposalfrom the union.But the teachers Tuesdaywere lowering expectationsfor an agreement, buoyed byenergetic rallies in which evenparents inconvenienced by thestrike waved placards in sup-port. Other unions were join-ing in, with school custodianrepresentatives saying theirmembers will walk off the jobthis week as well.Board President DavidVitale, the lead schools nego-tiator, said early in the day thata deal could be reached, butunion President Karen Lewisand her colleagues emergedfrom the talks accusing theboard of having dug in itsheels with its new proposal.Among the biggest remainingissues are a new teacher eval-uation system and a processfor deciding which laid-off teachers can be rehired.“There’s been — let’s putit this way — centimeters (of progress) and we’re still kilo-meters apart,” said Lewis, whoearlier stated it was “lunacy”to think the issues could bewrapped up quickly.School officials also tooksteps to prepare for a longhaul, despite persistent asser-tions by Mayor Rahm Emanueland others that the strike was“unnecessary” and could beresolved quickly. The schooldistrict in the country’s thirdlargest city announced that,beginning Thursday, the 147drop-off centers where stu-dents can get free breakfastand a morning of supervisionwill be open six hours a dayrather than four.Vitale said late Tuesdaythat the two sides had heldextensive discussions on theteacher evaluation system.But he questioned the serious-ness of the union negotiators,noting that they had encour-aged the protesting teachersto enjoy themselves at a rallyduring the day.As the teachers walk thepicket lines, they have been joined by parents who arescrambling to find a place forchildren to pass the time orfor baby sitters. Mothers andfathers — some with their kidsin tow — are marching withthe teachers. Other parents arehonking their encouragementfrom cars or planting yardsigns that announce their sup-port in English and Spanish.Unions are still hallowedorganizations in much of Chicago, and the teachersunion holds a special placeof honor in many householdswhere children often grow upto join the same police, fire-fighter or trade unions as theirparents and grandparents.“I’m going to stay strong,behind the teachers,” saidthe Rev. Michael Grant, who joined educators on the picketline Tuesday. “My son sayshe’s proud; ‘You are support-ing my teacher.”’But one question loom-ing over the contract talks iswhether parents will continueto stand behind teachers if students are left idle for daysor weeks. That ticking clockcould instill a sense of urgencyin the ongoing negotiations.Mary Bryan, the grand-mother of two students atShoop Academy on the city’sfar South Side, supports theteachers because she see “thefrustration, the overwork theyhave.” A protracted labor bat-tle, she acknowledged, would“test the support” of manyfamilies.Parents “should stick withthem, but they might demandteachers go back to work,”Bryan added.To win friends, the unionhas engaged in something of a publicity campaign, tellingparents repeatedly about prob-lems with schools and the bar-riers that have made it moredifficult to serve their kids.They cite classrooms that arestifling hot without air condi-tioning, important books thatare unavailable and insuffi-cient supplies of the basics,such as toilet paper.“They’ve been keepingme informed about that formonths and months,” Grantsaid.

Marion Township Trustees
Two years ago, I was proudto attend a historic event –the moment the first ChevyCruze rolled off the line at theLordstown, Ohio GM plant. AndI even took a ride in a red Cruze,similar to the one my wife nowowns—a car made, stamped,and assembled by workers fromacross the state.Just a few short years ago, inthe midst of the GreatRecession, companieslike General Motorsand Chrysler were onthe verge of disintegra-tion. The demand fornew vehicles droppedprecipitously, and with-out federal intervention,the industry was virtu-ally certain to collapse.Such a breakdownwould have put thelivelihood of hundredsof thousands of Ohioworkers in jeopardy.In November 2008, 1,000workers at GM’s Lordstownplant were laid off. Today, near-ly 5,000 people – and anothershift of workers – build theChevy Cruze, one of the hottestselling cars in the nation.While some people werewilling to let Detroit go bank-rupt, we were determined notto let this critical industry fallby the wayside. We were com-mitted to the tough decisionto save the auto industry fromdisintegration, helping maintainhundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs.In Ohio alone, more than800,000 jobs are associated withthe auto industry, with morethan 120,000 Ohioans directlyemployed by automakers, deal-ers, and supply-chain partsmanufacturers. The Center forAutomotive Research found thatmore than 160,000 auto jobswould have been lost in Ohio in2009 if the auto industry had notbeen restructured.But it’s not just jobs at theBig 3. Ohio is home to moreparts suppliers, materials indus-tries, and technology companiesthat support America’s automanufacturing base than almostany other state. And the ChevyCruze epitomizes how centralthe auto industry is to Ohio.While the car is assembled inthe Mahoning Valley, it featurescomponents made at plants allacross Ohio. The Cruze’s tiresare manufactured in Akron, itsseats in Warren, engine blocksin Defiance, metal from Parma,the transmission in Toledo,speakers in Springboro, and thealuminum wheels for the high-mileage Chevy Cruze Eco comefrom Cleveland.So in many ways, invest-ing in the auto industry wasabout investing in Ohio’s supplychain.When things looked bleak – and when no private financ-ing was available to the autocompanies – we didn’t give upon American auto companies orAmerican manufacturing.The two-year anniversary of the Chevy Cruze is a triumphanttime for the automakers andsuppliers in our state,but it could have beena far different pic-ture if auto industrydetractors had gottentheir way. Insteadof adding more thana thousand new jobsand new overtimeand weekend shiftsin Lordstown, GMmight have beenhanging padlockson the gates of thecomplex. Instead of receiving awards and accolades,the company could be passingout pink slips.And it’s not just GeneralMotors that’s reaped the benefits.In the past year, Chrysler, Ford,and Honda have also announcedmulti-million dollar investmentsin their facilities across Ohio.From Defiance to Parma, fromToledo to Sharonsville, fromAvon Lake to Lima, and fromMarysville to Anna, auto jobsare being created or saved.But as we continue to workour way toward economic recov-ery, one thing is clear: we’re notgoing back to business as usual.High-tech, fuel-efficient carsand clean energy are the future,and the American auto industryis adapting.That’s why I was encouragedby an agreement laid out by theAdministration and Americanautomakers to implement new,stronger fuel economy standardsfor domestic cars. By 2025, auto-makers’ fleet of vehicles mustaverage 54.5 miles per gallon.This will make American carsmore competitive on a globalmarket and lower fuel costs forOhio households.When we decided to save theU.S. auto industry from collapse,Ohio’s steelworkers, plastics pro-ducers, and stamping plant work-ers were able to keep their jobs.Ohio auto parts suppliers wereable to hire more people and buildcapacity.We owe it to our childrenand we owe it to Ohio workersto create a climate that fostersinnovation and creates jobs –and auto manufacturing plays atremendous role in that. Thanksto the auto rescue, the Americancar industry—including GeneralMotors’ and Ohio’s own ChevyCruze—is on the road to an evengreater future.
