More devastating cuts for Elida if levy fails
BY STACY TAFFstaff@delphosherald.com
ELIDA — On the May 7 PrimaryElection ballot, Elida Local Schoolswill make a request for new money,its second request in the last year.After claims in the past that schoolfunding is too reliant on propertytaxes, Elida tried for something dif-ferent with a 5-year, 0.75-percentEarned Income Tax Levy. The levywouldn’t have affected income gener-ated by pensions, retirement, interestor capital gains, yet 60 percent of voters said no.This time, Elida hopes voters willpass a 5.95-mill property tax levy,which would provide some financialstability for the next five years, gen-erating $2.1 million annually. Afterthe failure of November’s levy, theschool board approved a $465,569reduction plan that will still go intoeffect regardless of whether or notMay’s attempt succeeds.If it fails, more reductions will bemade. District officials are stumped as towhere those reductions will come from.“It’s an impossible task to saywhat’s next because anything lessthan what we have now will be dev-astating to our district,” Diglia said.Elida has cut 43 staff positionsover the last 10 years and is cur-rently at just 14 teachers above theminimum to meet state standards.Further cuts could include letting goof a building coach at the elemen-tary, a science teacher, language artsteacher and foreign language teacherat the high school, a foreign languageteacher at the middle school and areturn to half-day kindergarten.“Going to half-day kindergartenis really the only true reflection of a cut because those kids go away:we’d only get them for half a day,”Diglia said. “But cutting those teach-ing positions at the middle schooland high school, those kids don’t goaway. We still have to do somethingwith them. They can’t go in the otherclasses because they’re too full. Whatwe’d have to do is hire a study hallmonitor and send those kids to studyhall instead of class.”Diglia says cuts could be madeto extracurriculars and other courseofferings but doing so would result ina less thorough education and wouldmake Elida’s students less competi-tive in college.“We spend about half a million dol-lars on extracurriculars but I can’t evenentertain that thought,” he said. “It’smuch more than athletics,; it’s alsoperforming arts, quiz bowl, NationalHonor Society, student council. If we’re going to be a comprehensivepublic school, we’re going to have tohave things for our kids to do, other-wise, they’ll be out on the street. It’spart of a well-rounded education, partof community pride. It’s part of whypeople come to Elida.”Elida will also ask for a renewalof its 1-mill permanent improvementlevy. This is a renewal and does notincrease district residents’ taxes.

DELPHOS — When I&K Distributersclosed last year, it turned out to be a bless-ing in disguise for Sarah Brotherwood, whowas employed there for 13 years. Searchingthrough job openings in the paper led herto the clerk position at the Delphos PublicLibrary. After reading the description, sheknew it was the perfect job for her.Brotherwood was hired on March 14 and isenjoying settling into her busy routine.“The day-to-day varies but usually I comein and pull books for the consortium, get thosescanned and put them on a shelf for us to getready,” Brotherwood said. “I also spend timemaking flyers for upcoming events we haveplanned. I help check books in and out andI also put books away. I’ve been taking careof our iTunes account and downloading theCD’s we need for story time. We got an iPod,thanks to the Dienstberger Foundation, andI’ve been downloading the CDs into playlists,so we have them all in one place and don’tneed to flip through them all.”Much to Brotherwood’s delight, a largepart of her job is helping out Children’sLibrarian Denise Cressman.“I help Denise out with the children’sprograms. We’ve been doing a lot with theSummer Reading Program,” she said. “I staybusy getting the flannel boards made up andfinding the different photos we’ll need forprograms and printing them out. I’ll help outwith anything Denise needs, like putting theflowers up on the windows or finding booksto display.”Helping Cressman with programs andactivities provides a chance for Brotherwoodto spend time with the children, somethingshe looks forward to.“I love working with the kids,” she said.“It just feels good to know they’re havingfun. They’ll come up to me afterwards andgive me a hug and it’s because they had a

Wesleyan Churchwelcomes new pastor
BY STEPHANIE GROVESsgroves@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — This pastMarch, Wesleyan Churchvoted in its newest senior pas-tor, the Rev. Rodney Shade,who has been the interim pas-tor for the church since June2012.He was saved in October1974 and was sanctified in theWesleyan Church in Bradfordin 1975.Throughout his 30 yearsof ministry, Rev. Shade hasremained in Ohio. He beganhis ministry in 1982 in Troy,where in his five-year ten-ure with the church, the con-gregation doubled in atten-dance. Five years later, Shadebecame the assistant pastor inNew Miami, where he led acongregation of 120 people,was in charge of the church’sChristian School and createda program of how to minis-ter to those not attending thechurch’s services.“It’s kinda like PR (PublicRelations) in sales,” Shademused.Shade experienced a shorttenure in New Miami dueto the senior pastor’s resig-nation, which required himto resign his assistant pas-tor position. In 1988 whilein Sidney, Shade’s ministrywent really well. In 13 years,the church tripled in atten-dance, quadrupled in financesand led to the building of a4,400-square-foot parsonage.In 1992, Shade wasappointed to GreenvilleBethel Long, the first inter-racial community in Ohiowith ties to the UndergroundRailroad.“It was the best churchI’ve been at because of thepeople,” he said.Today, Shade is utilizingtwo assistant pastors and “re-formatting” his ministry. Thegoal is to train and equip

“I love working with thekids. It just feels good toknow they’re having fun.They’ll come up to meafterwards and give me ahug and it’s because theyhad a great time. It’s defi-nitely the best part.”

Fight far from over on Internet sales tax
WASHINGTON — Internet shop-pers are moving closer to paying salestaxes for their online purchases. But thefight is far from over.The Senate voted 63-30 Thursday toadvance a bill that would impose stateand local sales taxes on purchases madeover the Internet. An agreement amongsenators delayed the Senate’s final voteon passage until May 6, when senatorsreturn from a weeklong vacation.Opponents hope senators hear fromangry constituents over the next week,but they acknowledged they have a steephill to climb to defeat the bill in theSenate.Their best hope for stopping thebill may be in the House, where someRepublicans consider it a tax increase.President Barack Obama supports thebill.The bill would empower states toreach outside their borders and compelonline retailers to collect state and localsales taxes for purchases made over theInternet. Under the bill, the sales taxeswould be sent to the states where a shop-per lives.Under current law, states can onlyrequire stores to collect sales taxes if the store has a physical presence in thestate. As a result, many online salesare essentially tax-free, giving Internetretailers an advantage over brick-and-mortar stores.Senate Democratic leaders wanted tofinish work on the bill this week, beforeleaving town for the recess. But theywere blocked by a handful of senatorsfrom states without sales taxes.Oregon, Montana, New Hampshireand Delaware have no sales taxes,though the two senators from Delawaresupport the bill.The bill pits brick-and-mortar storeslike Wal-Mart against online servic-es such as eBay. The National RetailFederation supports it. And Amazon.com, which initially fought efforts insome states to make it collect sales taxes,supports it, too.Retailers who have lobbied in favorof the bill celebrated Thursday’s vote.Supporters say the bill is about fair-ness for local businesses that alreadycollect sales taxes, and lost revenue forstates. Opponents say the bill wouldimpose complicated regulations onretailers and doesn’t have enough pro-tections for small businesses. Businesseswith less than $1 million a year in onlinesales would be exempt.Many of the nation’s governors —Republicans and Democrats — havebeen lobbying the federal governmentfor years for the authority to collect salestaxes from online sales.The issue is getting bigger for statesas more people make purchases online.Last year, Internet sales in the U.S.totaled $226 billion, up nearly 16 percentfrom the previous year, according toCommerce Department estimates.The National Conference of StateLegislatures estimates that states lost $23billion last year because they couldn’tcollect taxes on out-of-state sales.Anti-tax groups have labeled the billa tax increase. But it gets support frommany Republicans who have pledgednot to increase taxes. The bill’s mainsponsor is Sen. Mike Enzi, a conserva-tive Republican from Wyoming. He hasworked closely with Durbin, a liberalDemocrat.Enzi and Durbin say the bill doesn’traise taxes. Instead, they say, it givesstates a mechanism to enforce currenttaxes.In many states, shoppers are requiredto pay unpaid sales taxes when they filestate tax returns. But governors complainthat few people comply.Under the bill, states that want tocollect online sales taxes must providefree computer software to help retailerscalculate the taxes, based on where shop-pers live. States must also establish asingle entity to receive Internet sales taxrevenue, so retailers don’t have to sendthem to individual counties or cities.

US economy acceleratesat 2.5 percent rate in Q1
WASHINGTON (AP)— U.S. economic growthaccelerated from Januarythrough March, buoyed bythe strongest consumerspending in more than twoyears. The strength offset fur-ther declines in governmentspending that are expected todrag on growth throughoutthe year.The CommerceDepartment said today thatthe overall economy expand-ed at an annual rate of 2.5percent in the first quarter,rebounding from the anemic0.4 percent growth rate in theOctober-December quarter.Much of the gain reflecteda jump in consumer spend-ing, which rose at an annualrate of 3.2 percent. That’s thebest since the end of 2010.Businesses responded to thegreater demand by rebuildingto their stockpiles. And homeconstruction rose further.But government spendingfell at a 4.1 percent rate, ledby another deep cut in federaldefense spending. That keptgrowth below economists’expectations of a rate exceed-ing 3 percent. And broad gov-ernment spending cuts thatbegan in March are expectedto weigh on the economy forthe rest of the year, whilehigher taxes have started tomake some consumers andbusinesses cautious.Many economists say theythink growth as measured bythe gross domestic productis slowing in the April-Junequarter to an annual rate of  just 2 percent. Most foreseegrowth remaining around thissubpar level for the rest of the year.GDP is the broadest gaugeof the economy’s health. Itmeasures the total output of goods and services producedin the United States, fromhaircuts and hamburgers toairplanes and automobiles.The cuts in governmentspending have forced federalagencies to furlough workers,reduced spending on key pub-lic projects and made busi-nesses more nervous aboutinvesting and hiring this year.The cuts came two monthsafter President BarackObama and Congress alloweda Social Security tax cut toexpire. That left a personearning $50,000 a year withabout $1,000 less to spendthis year. A household withtwo high-paid workers has upto $4,500 less.Consumers’ take-homepay is crucial to the economybecause their spending drivesroughly 70 percent of growth.Americans appeared toshrug off the tax increase atthe start of the year. Theyboosted spending in Januaryand February, helped by astronger job market. In part,that’s why growth is expectedto be solid in the first quarter.
