WASHINGTON — TheHouse overwhelminglypassed a sweeping, $638 bil-lion defense bill on Friday thatimposes new punishments onmembers of the armed ser-vices found guilty of rape orsexual assault as outrage overthe crisis in the military hasgalvanized Congress.Ignoring a White Houseveto threat, the Republican-controlled House voted315-108 for the legislation,which would block PresidentBarack Obama from closingthe U.S. detention facilityat Guantanamo Bay, Cuba,and limit his efforts to reducenuclear weapons.The House bill containingthe provisions on sex-relat-ed crimes that the Obamaadministration supports aswell as the detention policiesthat it vigorously opposesmust be reconciled with aSenate version before head-ing to the president’s desk.The Senate measure, expect-ed to be considered this fall,costs $13 billion less thanthe House bill — a budgetarydifference that also will haveto be resolved.The defense policy billauthorizes money for aircraft,weapons, ships, personneland the war in Afghanistan inthe fiscal year beginning Oct.1 while blocking the Pentagonfrom closing domestic bases.Partlycloudy thismorning, thenbecoming most-ly cloudy witha chance of showers and thunderstormsin the afternoon. Highs inthe lowers 80s. Showersand thunderstorms likelytonight with lows in themid 60s. See page 2.

Adams projects Novembercompletion for Peltier house
BY STEPHANIE GROVESStaff Writersgroves@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — Since2009, Jack Adams and hiswife Peggy have been dili-gently working to restore theprominent Peltier house at185 South Bredeick Streetand open it as a bed andbreakfast. Adams is opti-mistic about the meeting theNovember deadline so thehome can be open to the pub-lic during Christmas Season.“I did quite a bit of researchand one of the Peltier’s sonshas told me quite a bit andI also read about it,” Jacksaid. “Over the years, a lotof things have been changed.I’m still finding little thingshere and there. For instance,in between two differentwallpapers in the diningroom is a penciled date andsignature — Sept. 13, 1941,A.W. Blythe. He was a rela-tive of Arden Blythe.”In January 2011, theAdamses projected comple-tion of the kitchen, which wasthe first room to be finished.The dining room has alsobeen completed. In addition,when the restoration is com-plete, the home will have sixbedrooms and seven baths.“With the exception of alittle tweaking here and there,the three bedrooms, kitchenand dining room are done,”Adams stated.Each bedroom will havean etched transom windowinstalled above the doorwayindicating which Peltier familymember used the room and forwhat purpose. For example,the bedroom at the southeastcorner was Peltier’s Library.The transom window hasthe word “library” and bookgraphics etched into it. Adamsdescribed the details of thework in the room and pointedout two antique pieces of fur-niture, which the Peltier familywere kind enough to leave — athree-drawer chest dating backto the Civil War era and a mir-rored bureau from the 1920s.
One of the newly remodeled bedrooms, decorated in hues of purple, used to be StanleyPeltier’s bedroom. It will have an etched window transom above the doorway, a fire-place and an attached bathroom when the renovations are complete.

Our dad, Bill Kroeger, is a one-of-a-kind special Dad.He is always there for you and helps others in any wayhe can to put a smile on their face.He taught us to have faith in God, pray for others, donateto charity and remember to get your oil changes.He is a lot of fun to be around!God bless you, Dad!
Love, Debi, Deanne, Mark, Beth, Jenny and Kristi
I learned about sports and love watching them.I now have a love for oldies/rock thanks to Dad. In fact,the channels set in my car consist of classic rock!My love for bike riding has always been a fun time. Thefirst Father’s Day gift I gave him was a child bicycle seatthat I rode behind him on proudly. I loved every minute of it!He taught me to ride a bike with and without trainingwheels. If I fell, he told me to get back up and wipe off thedust, just like in life. I still follow that special advice.I learned to be a jokester/prankster from him.I’ll take every lesson learned and use it throughout mylife.Love and miss ya every day!
Min Metcalfe
My dad taught me about education.While he left school in the eighth grade — he neverstopped learning.He learned how to build things — making them strongand with German craftsmanship. And if he did not knowhow to do something… he learned how to figure it out.When he got home from work, he spent the eveningspouring over a correspondence course — with some bigblack binders that he would page through for reference.And he taught me that education was more than sittingin class — it meant gaining experience and building skills.I think he was proud when I went off to college … buthe made sure I knew the importance of using a wrench too.“Son — when your plumbing backs up, you don’t need aPh.D. You need a plumber!”He was a wise man.
Thanks Dad.Dave Berelsman
His quiet ways and patience has helped to make me theperson I am today.Life is full of curves. In these times, I try to stop what Iam doing and to not react but to think things through.Sometimes a thousand words can be said without a singleword spoken.Dad is the type to let me figure it out on my own. Hemay give a few words of advice, but gives me space to makemistakes. This freedom taught me that I can rely on myself.I also learned patience from Dad. One of my mottos thatI passed to my children is “Patience is virtue.” Sometimesthings are slow in coming to us and sometimes it’s the waitthat makes them worthwhile.These are the things I learned from my Dad.

Ohioan passes POW braceletto Vietnam veteran, 91
TOLEDO (AP) — AnOhio woman who wore abracelet engraved with thename of a prisoner of warfrom Vietnam is passing iton to that Florida veteran ashe marks the 48th anniver-sary of his capture.Patty James told TheBlade in Toledo she got thebracelet bearing the name of Col. Lawrence Guarino as aChristmas gift when she wasa teen and the bracelets werepopular among Americanyouth to show supportfor soldiers. She wore herbracelet daily until Guarinoreturned in February 1973after being held for nearlyeight years, and then heldonto it for decades more.“I’ve never forgotten hisname,” James said. “It’salways been etched in mymind.”James, an assistant tothe University of Toledopresident, didn’t try to findGuarino until recently, afterthe school’s military andmedia liaison showed hera video message from theU.S. defense secretary andshe learned more than 1,600POW or MIA Vietnam sol-diers aren’t accounted for,the newspaper reported.James mentioned the brace-let to the liaison, HarazGhanbari, and he suggestedtrying to find Guarino.They discovered the91-year-old veteran and hiswife live in Florida.Ghanbari arranged tomeet Guarino to return thebracelet to him Friday atGuarino’s retirement homein Melbourne, Fla. The cer-emony — exactly 48 yearsafter Guarino’s plane wasshot down — also serves asa reminder of veterans stillmissing, Ghanbari said.Guarino, who also servedin World War II and theKorean War, said he receivedmany such bracelets when hereturned to the U.S. and stillgets them occasionally.He said it’s a nice sign that“there were so many loyalAmericans while we werefighting” in an unpopular war.Work obligations keptJames from going to Floridafor the ceremony, but shesaid she’d eventually like tomeet Guarino, perhaps whilevisiting her own father-in-law in Florida sometime.
