DELPHOS — Twenty-one teams gathered on thestreets of downtown Delphos to pit their wits and strengthsagainst each other for the coveted traveling Battle of theBusinesses trophy.The events included: “Wrangler Rodeo,” “GoodDoggie,” “Granny’s Garden,” “Come and Get It!,” “PieEatin’,” “Spittin’,” and “Straw Tossing.”When the last bale straw crossed the finish line, theWestrich 2 team left everyone behind with a score of 338 points. Second place was won by Toledo Moldingand Die 2 with 233 and First Federal Bank took thirdwith 211.The remaining teams and their scores were: LakeviewFarms - 174; Toledo Molding and Die 1 - 168; DowntownFitness - 157; Vancrest Nurses - 153: Vanamatic - 152;Beauty Unlimited/Topp Chalet - 150; K&M Tire - 139;Unverferth - 136; Edward Jones - 126; Lakeview Farms- 125; Westrich 1 - 124; Kiwanis - 115; Rustic - 110;DRC Pin Heads - 103; Union Bank - 98; Pizza Hut - 88;Fountain Park Health Care and Rehab - 77; and SoundQuest - 71.Games coordinator Cindy Metzger was pleased withthis year’s event.“Things really went smoothly this year,” she said afterthe dust had settled. “We took the games back to backyardand barnyard fun.”
I can’t think of a Friday night in the news-room I enjoy more than Canal Days Fridaynight.We throw open the windows and listen tothe band and the crowd and it makes me smilebecause they sound like they are having somuch fun.Canal Days is a lot more than what you cando. It’s also about who you see. It’s great tofind old friends and reminisce while enjoyinga carnival atmosphere. New friends are also apossibility.Today’s schedule is packed with activitiesfor all ages, including a pancake and sausagebreakfast, bingo, the quilt show, the ArtFestexhibit as well as the art show, a bake sale, thepet parade, kiddie tractor pull, tractor show, aQueen’s Tea, a cruise-in and more.Young artists will fill the sidewalks withchalk drawings and anglers will vie for the topprizes in the fishing derby.New this year is Country Basket Bingowith some amazing prizes. I played PurseBingo last year and can I share something youwon’t tell? I am just no good at bingo and thenI get a little cranky when I don’t win. I knowthe odds are stacked against you because thereare so many who come out and play to supportCanal Days. However, I figure I have just asmuch as everyone else — and yet I never win.Harrumph!Canal Days is so many things and differentthings to each person.It’s a chance to see people you perhapsdon’t get to talk to any other time. Former res-idents often travel back to Delphos for what isconsidered by many a sort of homecoming.Businesses and clubs rally to make theevent special and more engaging than the yearbefore.The “Toast” and “Battle” just keep gettingbigger and better.There’s good food and good conversation.The kids get a chance to blow off somesteam and run around like spider monkeys ona bad sugar binge. There’s also a lot of orga-nized fun to keep them focused.What more could you ask for in the lastpremier festival of the year? Well, if youcome up with something, pass it along tothe committee. I’m sure they’ll try to fit it inif possible. They are some amazing peoplebacked by awesome volunteers. Give themsome backing of your own.2A The Herald Saturday, October 15, 2012

Negotiators have ’frame-work’ to end Chicago strike
CHICAGO (AP) — Thecity’s nearly weeklong teach-ers strike appeared headedtoward a resolution Fridayafter negotiators emergedfrom marathon talks to saythey had achieved a “frame-work” that could end thewalkout in time for studentsto return to class Monday.Both sides were carefulnot to describe the deal as afinal agreement and declinedto release the terms. Theyexpected to spend the week-end working out details beforeunion delegates are asked tovote Sunday on whether tocall off the strike.School Board PresidentDavid Vitale said the “heavylifting” was over after longhours of talks placed “frame-works around all the majorissues.”Union President KarenLewis agreed, saying therewere no “main sticking pointsright now.” But she reiteratedthat there is also no contractyet and the strike remains infull effect. Despite the appar-ent progress, she said, theunion is still suspicious of theboard after being burned inthe past.The walkout has been apotent display of union powerat a time when organizedlabor has been losing groundaround the nation. The nego-tiations have been closely fol-lowed by many other unionsand school districts that facethe same issues about thefuture of urban education,particularly teacher evalua-tions linked to student testscores and the threat of schoolclosures.In a statement, MayorRahm Emanuel said theframework “is an honest andprincipled compromise” that“preserves more time forlearning in the classroom,provides more support teach-ers to excel at their craft andgives principals the latitudeand responsibility to buildan environment in which ourchildren can succeed.”Robert Bloch, an attorneyfor the union, called it “one of the most difficult labor con-tracts negotiated in decades.”He said many of the coreissues had been worked out“but not all of them.”Shortly after negotiatorsreported the progress, Lewisentered a meeting of uniondelegates. The delegatescould be seen through win-dows cheering and applaud-ing, some of them on theirfeet and pumping their fistsin the air.Journalists were notallowed inside the meeting,but delegates said later thatthe cheering was not for adeal but because the negotiat-ing team had promised therewould be no agreement untileverything was in writing.“I think we want to goback to the classroom, but weare willing to do whatever weneed to,” said Adam Heenan,a delegate and teacher at CurieMetro High School. “We areprepared to go back to teach.We are prepared to continueto walk.”Still, both sides soundedmore optimistic than at anypoint since teachers hit thepicket line Monday.When the contract offeris complete, the union’s bar-gaining committee expectedto recommend the contractproposal to the membership,Bloch said.“And if we have beenlistening to the membershipwell and have heard theirconcerns, then that agreementwill be accepted by our mem-bership overall,” he said.The walkout, the first byChicago teachers in 25 years,canceled five days of schoolfor more than 350,000 publicschool students who had justreturned from summer vaca-tion.
Saturday, September 15, 2012 The Herald –3A
For decades, DelphosOhio has celebrated its his-tory and development witha Festival known as CanalDays. Each year it appearsthat the festival gets bigger,better, and longer. Hundredswere entertained Thursdayevening with the Toast of the City, while Friday eve-ning brought the DelphosArea Art Guild’s Artfest andReception.Of course our museumis open for special view-ing all day today from noonuntil 6 p.m. and then againfrom 3-6 p.m. on Sundayafter the big parade. This isa perfect time to bring thewhole family to downtownDelphos and enjoy the his-tory as it unfolds in ourmuseums and the activitiesthat are planned.So what does Canal Dayshave to do with postal his-tory? Everything. The firstmail that came to Delphoswas delivered to a smallstructure on Lock 10. Herethe mail that came with thecanal boats was collectedand people would come hereto get their mail.I really should say thatthe mail came by canal boatin 1846 to Section 10 whichwas actually located in VanWert County. The first post-master was Amos Clutterand he served in that capacityfrom June 30. 1846 until thenext postmaster appointmentwhich took place on Jan. 22,1850. Remember postmas-ters were political appoin-tees at that time and wereappointed by the Presidentof the United States. In 1850the postmaster was AndrewLinn.There were no stampsto speak of at that time.Stamps were first introducedin England by Sir RowlandHill. Check out our exhib-it on Sir Rowland and onstampless covers, frankingprivileges, and manuscriptpostmarks. Mail was oftensent “postage due” and therecipient had to pay the post-age in order to receive theirmail. On Feb. 10, 1851 thename of the city was offi-cially changed to “Delphos” – at least that’s when theUS Post Office Departmentreappointed Postmaster Linnas postmaster of Delphos,Ohio.To this very day, thereare numerous locationswhere mail is delivered byboat, air boat, and even ves-sels designed for passengerservice and pleasure cruis-ing. One such example canbe found on the shores of Skaneateles Lake in NewYork. Each day, a contrac-tor delivers mail to the twen-ty or so summer residentsalong the lake. This yearmarks 20 years that this mailrun has been delivered bythe boat Barbara S. Wiles of the Mid-Lakes NavigationCompany. People stand atthe end of their docks andwait for the mail boat tocome.When you come to ourmuseum, be sure to ask tosee the video on mail trans-portation. In it you will seefootage of a type of deliverythat has been called “PailMail”. Along the DetroitRiver (which is actually anestuary) a small boat willtake mail out to the big oceanliners that come through thelocks on their way to andfrom the Great Lakes. Oncethe boat has been secured bya rope from the liner, deckhands will lower a pail fullof the outgoing mail andwill retrieve mail for theirship that has been replacedin the pail. Thus you haveit — “pail mail.”We will continue talkingabout interesting ways thatmail gets from here to therein my next article which willshowcase “mail jumpers.”Stop back and see this mightbe the perfect summer jobfor someone.We’re finalizing ouritinerary for New York andwe’ve sent in our roominglists to the hotels. We areexpecting to have a fabuloustime. If you call me today, Imight be able to find you aseat but there are no guaran-tees. I hope you didn’t waittoo long to call?We have been grant-ed a part time position atthe Museum from the USDepartment of Labor andthe Experience Works pro-gram. If you are over 55and out of work and wouldbe interested in performingoffice work, call me as soonas possible to see if you canqualify. My number is 419-303-5482.
