Thistle, debris landscape Cintas property
BY STEPHANIE GROVESStaff Writersgroves@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS —The CintasCorporation property at the cornerof Fifth and Main streets has becomean eyesore, according to DelphosCity officials. One that greets anyoneentering the downtown area from thenorth side.Vegetative overgrowth on theproperty includes towering thistle,volunteer Mulberry trees and an arrayof other indigenous weeds growingthroughout the landscape and at thefence line. In addition to the propertybeing a weed zone, the area of thechain-link fence reported to be cavingin is now laying on the ground on topof broken concrete chunks near thesidewalk on Fourth Street.Delphos Safety Service DirectorGreg Berquist has said the city hasnot been quiet about the vacant prop-erty but the city has done all it can.The city has been in constant com-munications over the last year withCintas’ corporate headquarters inCincinnati, speaking with the legaland engineering departments to getsome resolve.
The old Van Dyne Crotty building owned by Cintas Corporation of Cincinnati seems to have been left unat-tended for quite some time, considering the poor condition of the landscaping and structural failure of thechain-link fence. Ongoing communications between Delphos Safety Service Director Greg Berquist and Cintasrepresentatives have yielded few answers as to the future of the building.

Common Core education standardsdiscussed by Heart Land Patriots
BY LINDSAY MCCOYDHI Correspondentlmccoy@timesbulletin.com
VAN WERT - More than 100 people turnedout Tuesday evening as the Heart Land Patriotswelcomed Heidi Huber, a financial administratorfor a Christian academy. Huber led a discussionon federally-mandated Common Core standardsand their effect on Ohio schools.Huber believes the future of the Americanrepublic is reclaiming its children from the stateand believes that the Common Core does theexact opposite of this. Huber acknowledged thatthese standards were written and instituted flaw-lessly in that teachers and the public did not evenrecognize it was in place and what was about tohappen to their school’s way of educating.The deadline to adopt the standards was Dec. 31,2011. At the time, they did not even have a name,since the standards were not even written at the time,according to Huber. The implementation of thesestandards are due sometime between 2014-2015.“You have to pause and ask, ‘what are wedoing; are we training or teaching and who is incharge or determining this,’” posed Huber. Withthe teacher and principal evaluation, she believesteachers lose all control over their own assess-ment and teaching, and high-performing teacherseven have the chance of being reassigned by thefederal and state governments to a low-perform-ing school.Huber, along with many others, believe thatwhat gets tested is what gets taught, and withone standard test in place, schools and teacherswill lose control of what and how they can teachtheir students. Within Common Core language,students are also defined as human capital, andHuber believes this description of children hascaused them to lose a form of humanity in theeyes of education.“Independence comes from freedom and self-determination,” said Huber. “Common Core is acontrol monster and has made our children intoguinea pigs to see what works and what doesn’t.”Doubters of Common Core believe that educa-tion will become completely federally-run and notonly will the school and teachers lose control of achild’s education, but also their own parents will.It is thought that these standards will becomea way for the government to watch childrenfrom cradle to career and maneuver the entireprocess in-between. The PARCC Memorandumof Understanding will allow all testing data to bereleased to the feds. To date, only one state hasattempted to undergo the extensive process of removing themselves from PARCC, but approvalwas never granted.“This is the line in the sand,” noted Huber.“This affects every child and family in the nation.This is the capstone to the progressive movementthat has been aimed towards for years.”Huber believes that the only ways to get pastthe Common Core at this time are to rescind Raceto the Top grants, attempt to repeal the PARCCcompliance, or develop organic Ohio standardsand assessment to be approved by legislature.While there are many who oppose and drawred flags from Common Core, others do notquestion the instituted standards and are eagerto instate it within their schools. Pastor KeithStoller received an email from a local teacherkindly denying attendance at Tuesday’s meetingas Common Core standards are already beinginstituted within their school and no problemshave been noted to date.
