Bond with Mom this Mother’s Day
BY STEPHANIE GROVESsgroves@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — Mother’s Day is a holidayhonoring motherhood, is observed throughoutthe world and became an official U.S. holidayin 1914. The actual dates and celebrationsmay vary but Mother’s Day is normallycelebrated the second Sunday in May andtraditionally involves presenting mothers withflowers, cards and sentiments of love.Businesses in Delphos are gearing up forthe second-busiest holiday of the year.Owner of Flowers on Fifth, Cheryl Stocke,recommends the “Shabby Chic” style arrange-ments, which are hot items, and the summerscented candles Caribbean Cheesecake andCrushed Honeydew.“The most popular item is a toss-upbetween hanging baskets, custom-designedfloral arrangements and a dozen mixed colorroses,” Stocke detailed.Readmore’s Hallmark Store ManagerJoanne Wrasman said that this year’s gift-ing ideas include Hallmark Magic Printswhich allows kids to give mom or grandma apersonalized handprint — without a mess —within a picture frame, on drink tumblers, onMother’s Day cards, in four panel frames andon gift bags. For pet parents, the store carriesthe kits for pet paw prints.“The cutest thing is when kids come inwith daddies and pick out gifts for mommies,”Wrasman mused.The first North American Mother’s Daywas conceptualized by Julia Ward Howe, thewriter of The Battle Hymn of the Republic,through her Mother’s Day Proclamation in1870. The death and carnage of the Civil Warspurred her to call on mothers to assembleand protest the futility of their sons killing thesons of other mothers.In 1873, a West Virginia women’s groupled by Anna Reeves Jarvis conceived Mother’sFriendship Day — a holiday we celebratetoday. The celebration of mothers was heldto re-unite families and neighbors dividedbetween the Union and Confederate sides of the Civil War.In 1908, Anna M. Jarvis campaigned forthe creation of an official Mother’s Day inremembrance of her mother and in honor of peace. Her request was honored and on May10, 1908, the first official Mother’s Day cel-ebration took place at Andrew’s MethodistChurch in Grafton, W.Va., and a church inPhiladelphia, Pa.Jarvis arranged for two white carnations —her mother’s favorite flower — to adorn everymother in attendance.Today, white carnations are used to honordeceased mothers, while pink or red carna-tions pay tribute to mothers whom are stillalive.
Travelers overlookchecking spare tire
BY STEPHANIE GROVESsgroves@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — Before taking off on a day trip, weekend excur-sion or extended vacation with a destination including sand, sunand an ocean breeze, make sure to have routine and summer main-tenance performed on the vehicle being driven, prepare for pricesat the pump and map out a detailed driving route.Public Relations Manager for AAA Ohio Auto ClubKimberly Schwind said that many people don’t realize thatpreventative vehicle maintenance goes hand-in-hand withsafety. It can also end up saving them tons of money downthe road.“A small problem today can turn into a much larger, moreexpensive problem, if left unresolved,” Schwind explained.First and foremost, travelers need to inspect all five tires.AAA reports that one of the most frequently overlookeditems on a vehicle is the spare tire. Check the tread depthand pressure of your tires and whether or not there is unevenwear. If possible, pack a real spare. If a tire blows out in themiddle of nowhere, there may be quite a distance to drive onthe spare.Service Manager at Delpha Chevrolet Buick Bill Schultesays that it is important to maintain the proper tire pressure forsafety reasons, as well as to save money.“Tires inflated too high cause uneven wear; too lowdecreases fuel mileage,” Schulte explained. “Either scenariocan cause the vehicle to pull one way or the other.”Properly-inflated tires can improve fuel economy by upto three percent, which is as much as 12 cents per gallon,according to the Department of Energy. Yet, 85 percentof drivers do not know howto properly inflate their tires.Motorists should fill tires tothe level indicated in the vehi-cle owner’s manual or on thedriver’s side door jamb.Before hitting the road,take the vehicle in for anoil change, proper filling of windshield washer fluid andcoolant/antifreeze and aninspection of wiper blades andbattery. Summer heat breaksdown car batteries internallyand accelerates the rate of cor-rosion on the vehicle’s batteryterminals. Both conditions canlead to insufficient electricalpower and leave a motoriststranded without warning.

Ottawa teen pleads not guilty to grand theft
See TIRES, page 10Staff and Wire Reports
OTTAWA - The Ottawa teenagerwho pointed authorities to the sitewhere the bodies of two friends werefound made his first appearance incourt on Friday.Michael Fay, 17, entered a plea of not guilty to grand theft in PutnamCounty Juvenile Court Friday after-noon. An investigation is ongoing andthere is a probability of more chargesbeing filed against Fay.“It is premature at this point tosay what those charges could be,”stated Assistant Putnam CountyProsecutor Gary Lammers. “If thefacts would warrant and support [amurder charge], it is on the table. Butat this point, I have not seen a reportthat would give me a clear indicationof whether that is appropriate at thisstage or not, but we will reserve thatright and we will make a thoroughreview.”When asked about the possibilityof charging Fay as an adult, AssistantCounty Prosecutor Todd Schroedersaid, “If the facts and circumstanceswarrant that, all potential chargesremain on the table.Fay’s mother was beside him dur-ing the court appearance Friday. Fayhimself said very little during theproceedings, answering only to tellJudge Michael Borer that he under-stood his rights. A pre-trial hearingcould take place as soon as May 24.The two dead friends were 17-year-old Blake Romes and his 14-year-oldbrother Blaine. Their bodies werefound in a ditch along Putnam CountyRoad 7 Thursday afternoon after Faytold Columbus Police were to look.The three boys lived together in atrailer home in Ottawa.Early Thursday morning, theRomes’ mother, Shellie Grothause,was summoned home to see whyBlaine had not reported to leave withhis eighth-grade classmates for theclass trip to Washington, D.C. Whenshe arrived at the home in ElkcrestTrailer Park, she found what she saidlooked like a “crime scene.” Alsomissing was Grothause’s silver 2006Chevrolet HHR.An Amber Alert for the three boyswas issued at 11:21 a.m. Thursday.Less than two hours later, Fay wascaptured by Columbus Police after hestopped at a gas station to ask direc-tions. He was driving the missingcar. The Amber Alert was canceledat 3 p.m.The Putnam County Sheriff’sOffice said the 17-year-old told offi-cers that the Romes brothers weredead and gave the locations of theirbodies. Few other details have beenreleased about the case.Sheriff Mike Chandler said thebodies were found in different loca-tions. He declined to give additionalinformation on what happened, say-ing he was limited because thoseinvolved are juveniles.Chandler said authorities werewaiting for autopsies to be completedto determine the causes of the boys’deaths.Neighbors at the trailer park saythe women who lived there workedovernight shifts. Brad Bailey, wholives across the street, said he saw thewomen outside pacing back and forthfor much of the day after the boyswere reported missing Thursday. Hesaid he had seen all three boys laugh-ing and joking together in the past.Blaine was on the basketball andtrack teams, Kevin Brinkman said.Blake was a junior at Ottawa-Glandorf High School, where he wasinvolved in track and choir, principalJayson Selgo said Friday. The schoolhas about 530 students and word of his death traveled fast in the com-

I put teamworkand camaraderie before mycourse time. I do not whine – kids whine. I help my fel-low Mudders complete thecourse. I overcome all fears.Over 700,000 have par-ticipated in these world wideevents, which have raisedmore than five million dol-lars for the Wounded WarriorProject.

They both teach in theDublin School System.Steve expressed his heartfelt feelings – why he is aTough Mudder as follows:Why I do Tough Mudder“This year I was on TeamGood Clean Fun. Many of myteammates experienced theirfirst Mudder in Mansfield. Iremember when they werethinking about committingto run in the event. Theyweren’t sure… they wereexperiencing some intimida-tion and were worried aboutgetting injured. Let’s just saythat they found their fight-ing spirit. They now havean increased appreciation of what our service men andwomen do every day.“This country has thou-sands of men and women whoare suffering. The WoundedWarrior Project makes surethey are not forgotten. TheWWP makes sure they aretaken care of when they gethome.“When I got out of theNavy, it was a bittersweetmoment. I was excited thatI was going to going back toOhio to be with my family.I missed them everyday Iwas away. When I watchedthe USS Toledo head out forthe last time, it was a sadmoment for me. I realizedthat I might not see my broth-ers again. I had their back andthey had mine. I know I hadmy family to go home to, butI had no idea what my newlife was going to look like.I struggled trying to adjustwhen I finished my enlist-ment. I had little tolerance forothers….it was tough. When9/11 happened I was angryand I remember making aphone call and telling theother end that I wanted togo back. For a long time Ifelt like I was giving up mybrothers. I wanted to be withthem, but my Mom taught mea very important lesson…shesaid ‘You can’t make deci-sions when you’re angry.’ SoI spent the next few yearstrying to understand the deci-sions I made.“Post-traumatic stress dis-order is a type of anxietydisorder. It can occur afteryou’ve seen or experienced atraumatic event that involvedthreat of injury or death.Many of our service men andwomen, just need someoneto talk to. They need to knowwe are here to support them.It’s because of them, that weare here.“I do the Tough Mudderbecause it’s my way of know-ing that I have my brothers

CLEVELAND (AP) — A DNA test con-firmed another dark twist in the story of threewomen imprisoned in a house for about adecade: Kidnapping and rape suspect ArielCastro is the father of a 6-year-old girlwho escaped from the house along with thewomen, a prosecutor said Friday.As the investigation into the women’sordeal continued, the FBI also said no humanremains were among more than 200 pieces of evidence collected from the house.Two of the women, including the one whogave birth to the girl, returned to relatives’houses earlier this week. The third woman,Michelle Knight, was released from a hospi-tal Friday with a request that her privacy berespected.“Michelle Knight is in good spirits andwould like the community to know that she isextremely grateful for the outpouring of flow-ers and gifts,” the statement said.No information would be provided aboutKnight’s next steps, said MetroHealth MedicalCenter spokeswoman Phyllis Marino.Castro remained in jail under a suicidewatch on $8 million bond while prosecu-tors weighed what charges they might bringagainst him, including the possibility of charges carrying a death penalty. He currentlyis charged with rape and kidnapping.Castro was represented at Thursday’s hear-ing by public defender Kathleen Demetz, whosaid she is acting as Castro’s adviser if neededuntil he’s appointed a full-time attorney oncehe’s charged by a grand jury. She said Fridayshe can’t speak to his guilt or innocence andsaid only that she advised him not to giveany media interviews that might jeopardizehis case.Family members have portrayed Castroas a “monster” who terrorized the mother of his children, frequently beating her, playingtwisted psychological games and locking herindoors.The stories, repeated in separate interviewsby members of Castro’s extended family, havesurprised people who knew him as a musi-cian who played bass in several bands aroundCleveland the last two decades.Miguel Quinones, manager of a groupCastro played with twice as a backup bassplayer about five years ago, said Thursday hehad nothing bad to say about Castro based onhis own experiences.
