Ohio officials downplay higher unemployment numbers
FROM STAFFAND WIRE REPORTSnews@delphosherald.com
COLUMBUS — On the heelsof news Thursday showing that yetanother 3,371 people in the statehad applied for unemployment ben-efits, Ohio’s unemployment rate forJune was released showing a jumpin the rate and a big loss of jobs.According to the latest reportfrom the Ohio Department of Joband Family Services (ODJFS), thestate’s jobless rate rose to 7.2 per-cent in June, up from 7.0 percent inboth April and May. The rate is thehighest in Ohio since last August.The state showed a loss of 12,500 jobs in June which was the secondlargest amount of any state.Data released by the U.S.Department of Labor on Thursdayshowed unemployment ratesincreasing in 28 states last month,partly because more Americansbegan searching for work and notall of them got jobs. The gov-ernment does not count people asunemployed unless they are active-ly looking for work.The numbers showed a sharpincrease in the number of peoplewho had signed up for unemploy-ment in Ohio. The state had thefifth-highest increase in the numberin the week ending July 6. The job losses were blamed on layoffsin manufacturing, transportation,retail, and utilities.An ODJFS spokesman pointedout that more people are confidentin the economy and because of that they have embarked on a jobhunt.“When they become more con-fident that they’ll likely get a job,they actually start looking for a job,”said Benjamin Johnson, spokesmanfor the Ohio Department of Job andFamily Services. “And we knowthat as the labor force grows, itoften results in an increase (in therate) because not all the peopleentering the labor force will get a job right away.”According to the report, thenumber of jobs dropped by 12,500to just over 5.2 million while thenumber of unemployed increasedby 8,000 to 413,000. Overall inthe last 12 months, the number of unemployed has dropped by 5,000people.The June 2013 rate of 7.2 percentis just marginally lower than the jobless rate in June 2012 when itwas 7.3 percent. However, Ohio’srate has consistently remainedbelow the national rate, which was7.6 percent last month. The state’sunemployment rate peaked duringthe last half of 2009 and early 2010at 10.6 percent before starting itstrek downward.State officials point to goodeconomic news like that comingout of Toledo this week with theannouncement by Chrysler that pro-duction on the new Jeep Cherokeeshould reach full production thisSeptember. The company hasalready hired 1,100 new workers forthe Toledo plant which also makesthe Jeep Wrangler.In May, Ohio saw a loss of 3,100 manufacturing jobs, another3,000 positions in the educationaland health services fields and 7,100local government jobs.

Reser’s closing will have nodirect impact on city schools
BY NANCY SPENCERHerald Editornspencer@delposherald.com
DELPHOS — Delphos City Schools Treasurer BradRostorfer is concerned Delphos will lose Reser’s Fine Foodsin September but at the same time, feels fortunate it won’timpact the bottom line.Rostorfer said since the district does not have an incometax and tangible personal property tax has been phased out, theclosure should not affect the district’s bottom line.“Real estate taxes will still be assessed for the property andsomeone will still own it and owe those,” he said. “I suppose itcould go in to a delinquency situation but as a whole, the clo-sure won’t have an immediate affect on the district’s budget.”He hopes S.B. 59, Gov. Kasich’s new biennial budget,includes a little something extra to replace a portion of thetangible personal property tax and so far, Delphos is one of thedistricts that will receive an increase in state funding.“Right now we are in line to receive a little more for specialeducation and vocational education,” he added.

Companies that have alot of employees and many accidentscould be removed from their grouprating and/or pay higher premiums.“For example, if a company haspremiums of $75,000, the poten-tial rebate of 4 percent is $3,000,”Moenter detailed. “By meeting theprogram requirements, this rebatemoney far exceeds the fees/timeinvolved with the Safety CouncilProgram.”The Safety Council Program is aninitiative designed to increase safetyawareness and give businesses a poten-tial cost savings benefit through rebateson their Workers’ Compensation rates byproviding a forum for safety and healthinformation, education and networkingin local communities. Program topicsmust be classified under occupationalsafety and health, risk management,workers’ compensation, BWC services,rehabilitation or environmental issues.

State and Baltimore joined withrepresentatives of the Baltimore &Ohio Railroad here today in thecelebration of the hundredth anni-versary of the charter to the railroadto operate the FIRST general freightand passenger line on this continent.On Feb. 28, 1827, the state of Maryland authorized a newly orga-nized company to construct a rail-road from the city of Baltimore tosome point on the Ohio River.

But the builders of those firstrailroads could not have dreamedthat the United States was to fill thecontinent from Atlantic to Pacificwithin less than a century the rapiddevelopment of all facilities whichwere to bring Baltimore almost asnear to San Francisco as it was thento Boston.Delphos Herald,Feb. 28, 1927—————

Assoon as the gas became unpleas-ant, he sought fresh air by jumpingthrough the glass window pane.Running to the porter, the dogbarked until the latter investi-gated.The dog’s master and mistressresuscitated and now all three aretrying to make the best of life.Delphos Herald,Mar. 2, 1927—————Saturday, July 20, 2013 The Herald 3
