The Delphos Rotary had the pleasure of hosting approxi-mately 150 high school seniors for the 15th annual DelphosHistorical Walking Tour and Scavenger Hunt. It was our 1styear with heavy rain and the need for our ponchos for thewalkers.The Rotary Walking Tour could not have taken place with-out additional help from the Delphos community. The schools— Jefferson, Vantage and St. John’s — made it possible. TheDelphos Canal Commission supplied the historical informationand made their museum available for the seniors to tour, as didthe Delphos Postal Museum.Community residents and teachers who served as his-torical tour guides were: Lou Hohman, Doris Dickman, BobEbbeskotte, Dan Jones, Judy Fisher, Charles Rohrbacher,Teresa Bradstock, Jay Winhover, Ed Ulrich, the Rev. HarryTolhurst, Jerry Gilden and Mike Miller.In addition to our guides, we had approximately 35 peoplewho volunteered at various locations throughout the day anda number of teachers and volunteers who walked with thestudents.Rotary provided the students with breakfast at JeffersonHigh School cafeteria before the tour started. Our guest pre-senters for the morning program at Jefferson High Schoolwere: Mayor Michael Gallmeier, ODNR/Water Division -Retired Steve Dorsten and Neal Brady of MECCA.The police and fire departments allowed us to tour the oldcity building. Several businesses made their buildings avail-able, allowing the seniors to see that the older buildings inDelphos can be restored to be attractive and useful today.One popular stop along our tour as always was the OldCapitol Theatre inside the Westrich and Coins, Currency, andCollectibles buildings. Other stops were John Lehmkuhle’s old“speakeasy” on North Main Street and the Bill and Jill Graves“New York Style” loft apartment.Lunch was provided by the VFW and the VFW Auxiliary.The students were greeted at the VFW by the Color Guard.We would like to thank everyone who helped with the walk-ing tour. We feel it is truly a community event.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — SouthDakota’s largest city is welcomingpolitical figures, family and friends intown to mark the life and career of former Democratic U.S. senator andthree-time presidential candidate GeorgeMcGovern, a legend in state’s politicalhistory who died Sunday at age 90.Hundreds of people are expected togather today for a public viewing andprayer service at First United MethodistChurch. Among the confirmed guests isVice President Joe Biden, who servedalongside McGovern in the Senate in the1970s and early ’80s.“I was honored to serve with him,to know him and to call him a friend.... Above all, George McGovern was agenerous, kind, honorable man,” Bidensaid Sunday in an emailed statementafter McGovern’s death.The two days of remembrance forthe staunch liberal will include some of South Dakota’s highest ranking officialsfrom both sides of the political spectrum.Sen. John Thune, Rep. Kristi Noem andSouth Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard, allRepublicans, have confirmed they planto attend. Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D.,is scheduled to speak at the 6:30 p.m.prayer service this evening.It isn’t yet clear who will speakFriday at the funeral inside the MarySommervold Hall, which seats 1,800people. McGovern family spokesmanSteve Hildebrand said the family willnot announce who is attending.It’s possible that former PresidentBill Clinton and former Republicanpresidential candidate and U.S. Sen.Bob Dole could attend. Clinton and hiswife, Secretary of State Hillary RodhamClinton, met McGovern while cam-paigning for him in 1972 and remainedfriends. Bill Clinton later appointedMcGovern as ambassador to the UnitedNations’ food and agriculture agencyand awarded him the Presidential Medalof Freedom, the country’s highest civil-ian honor.McGovern later was appointed tobe the first UN Global Ambassador onWorld Hunger. Dole and McGovernco-founded the Food for Education pro-gram for children in poverty-strickencountries.McGovern, who railed against theVietnam War as a senator and later losthis 1972 presidential bid to RepublicanRichard M. Nixon in a historic landslide,is to be buried at a later date at RockCreek Cemetery in Washington, D.C.Sioux Falls business managers arepreparing for an influx of customers,though they don’t know just how many.Tiffany Semmler, a manager atMinervas Restaurant, a few blocks fromthe site of the funeral, is bracing for abusy Friday.“You never know if people are com-ing from out of town and going directlyto the funeral, we might not get anexcessively busy lunch. If they decideto go directly home after the funeral, wewon’t get a big push after the funeral,”she said, noting that the restaurant isplanning to schedule an additional serv-er and cook.“If everyone stays in town and isn’tgoing back to work on Friday, we couldget hit really hard,” she said.At least one hotel is offering a dis-count for those attending the funeral of McGovern, who was born in Avon andgrew up in Mitchell.The executive director of the SiouxFalls Regional Airport bets most out-of-towners will be driving. Pheasant hunt-ing season opened last weekend, saidDan Letellier, and the airport’s 23 dailyflights today and Friday are alreadybooked.“Any national figure or businessleaders from other parts of the countrymay very well end up chartering flightsor corporate jets,” he said.
