 Phil Dirt and the Dozers at Stadium Par
Back by popular demand, Phil Dirt and the Dozers will play Stadium Park onSunday for the fourth installment of the Delphos Rotary Club’s Music in the Parkseries. America’s premiere “Rock ‘N R’oldies” review expresses musical talent withhigh energy and a contagious sense of humor. Phil Dirt & The Dozers will transportlisteners to the 1950’s and 60’s for classic music of the era. Imagine hearing The FourSeasons’ “Sherry” with the original falsetto vocals intact, the Righteous Brothers’“Unchained Melody” or “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” or “Pretty Woman” and“In Dreams” by Roy Orbison. Party on the beach with The Beach Boys and imaginethe Platters’ “Only You” performed with all the scratches and skips found on a well-worn 33 1/3 record, the way The Dozers first learned it. The Phil Dirt time machinealso stops by the 1970s for hits from the Doobie Brothers, Grand Funk Railroad, Eagles and the O’Jays.

The DienstbergerFoundation & Family
Most residents of our fine com-munity have heard of the Arnold C.Dienstberger Foundation and its gener-osity. In fact, we have all been touchedby this foundation in one way or anotherthrough grants which have been award-ed to the many organizations in theDelphos School District. However, didyou know how this foundation wasformed?It all began back in 1963, whenArnold C. Dienstbeerger set up an irre-vocable trust as a memorial of his wife,Emma, who passed away on the 31stday of July in 1963.Arnold was born 12 March 1892in Delphos to Charles and Rose(Wiedeman) Dienstberger. He mar-ried Emma Buchholtz on 2 December1924. They each had several siblingsbut their marriage was not blessed withchildren. Emma was born in MiddlePoint, the daughter of Lewis and MaryBuchholtz. At the time of her death in1963, she was survived by two brothers:Herman F. Buchholtz of Delphos andCharles L. Buchholtz of Van Wert; andtwo sisters, Mrs. Howard Hughes of Van Wert and Mrs. Anna Showalter of Fort Wayne. A brother and sister weredeceased. Emma was a member of St.Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church, theAmerican Lutheran Church Women andthe Delphos Chapter No. 25, Order of the Eastern Star. Her burial was in thefamily mausoleum in the Walnut GroveCemeteryArnold spent most of his life inDelphos. At one time, the Dienstberger’smade their home at 627 W. Fifth St. inDelphos. His siblings were Cedelia, whomarried A. O. Smith; William C., whomarried Zoe Dill; and Carl, who marriedMollie Smith.Arnold was a member of St. Peter’sLutheran Church in Delphos. He gradu-ated from the University of Chicago LawSchool, was a veteran of World War Iand a member of the Delphos AmericanLegion and the Delphos Post 3035,VFW. He was a member of the DelphosChapter 105 Royal Arch Masons, theDelphos Council 72 Royal and SelectMasters, and a 50 year member of HopeLodge 214, Free and Accepted Masons.Dienstberger purchased the City Fuelin 1924 from F. O. Brotherton and soldthe business and retired in 1942. ArnoldDienstberger passed away 16 June,1980, at the Delphos Memorial Home.Services were at the Lutheran Churchwith entombment in the family mauso-leum at Walnut Grove Cemetery.In 1964, Dienstberger made anoffer of $76,500 to build the DelphosMemorial Home for the aged. The offerwas conditional upon the residents of Delphos raising the additional fundsnecessary to construct and operate thehome. The money was set aside in anirrevocable trust. The home would beself-sustaining. A group of Delphos andarea residents had just formed an organi-zation to build an old folks home at theintersection of US 30 North and South.Dienstberger was a member of that com-mittee. The town raised a substantialamount of money for the project.A timeline of the establishment of nursing homes in Delphos might behelpful:1963 — Del Ward opened on WestThird Street, named in honor of MaryWard. George and Bertha Grothouswere managers.1966 — Del Ward was purchased bythe Dienstberger Foundation.1966 — The 50-bed DelphosMemorial Home was built.1973 — An addition was added toThe Del Ward Home from a donation byDr. Chambers and named in honor of hiswife, Sarah Jane Chambers.1978 — A 50-bed expansion wasadded to the Memorial Home.1998 — The Delphos MemorialHome and the Sarah Jane NursingHome were sold to Vancrest.Following the sale of these twohomes, the money became part of TheArnold C. Dienstberger Foundation. TheFoundation began giving grants in 1998.The grants for the first year amount-ed to $62,800. By 2010, the grantsamounted to $300,000 and in 2011, itwas $305,000. This past year 2012, thefoundation gave $325,000 to a numberof organizations in the Delphos SchoolDistrict. Since 1963, the DienstbergerFoundation has given away 3.6 milliondollars.The Delphos Swimming Pool wasthe recipient of a very generous gift of $50,000 for needed repairs to the wall of the pool. Without this grant, the wonder-ful pool, a WPA Project in the 1940s,might not have been able to open.We should all be thankful to Arnoldand Emma Dienstberger for this won-derful gift, and to the board of the foun-dation for their diligent monitoring of the whole of the foundation.Current members of the board are RickMiller, Bill Massa, Doug Harter, NickClark, Lonnie Miller, Doris Neumeier,Jerry Gilden and John Nomina.Some recipients of the grants are TheDelphos Police and Fire Departments,both the public and parochial schools,Stadium Project, Delphos Senior CitizenCenter, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, The St.Vincent DePaul Society, The DelphosChristmas Project, The Delphos CanalCommission, The Postal Museum andthe Concerts in the Park. The foundationalso provided the money to purchase theland for the Veterans Memorial Park.The immigrant ancestor of theDienstberger families was Jacob, whoarrived in 1850 at the age of 18.
The history of the DienstbergerFamilies will be continued on Aug. 10 inthe Delphos Herald.
Mathis Grocery and Bakery badly damaged
(Continued from lastSaturday’s paper)
It was about 11 o’clockMonday night when E.E.Mathis’ grocery and bakery, onestory frame building, betweenthe Walsh block and Wm.Wagner’s brick building wasdiscovered on fire.The blaze started about half way between the front and rear,directly over the brick oven onthe north side. It was very dif-ficult to reach the fire owing tothe building having a doubleroof and its position between thehigh brick walls on either side. Itwas some time before the blazewas put out.It was with great difficultythat a crowd was restrained frombreaking in the door and makingan effort to carry out the goods,which, had it been allowed,would have been a very fool-ish undertaking. All the goodsin the front end of the store areuninjured.It was fully an hour beforethe last flickering flame wasquenched and the crowd leftfor home. The bake room wasnot touched by the fire or waterand head baker, Huffman, wasat work Tuesday as usual. Noattempt to conduct business willbe made until the insurance hasbeen adjusted. The building isowned by C.G. Mathis of southof Delphos, an uncle of E.E.Mathis.—————The millinery store of Mr.Kate Eysenbach & Sister isagain open to the public. Thelegal action has been discontin-ued, the judgment paid and thebusiness will be conducted thesame as heretofore. The ladiesare now preparing for the springtrade.—————A cage of Mongolian andthree of Ring Neck pheasantshas been shipped from the StatePheasant farm, near Van Wert,to Washington Court House,for exhibit at the Southern OhioPoultry Assn. show at that city.Delphos Herald,Jan. 14, 1897—————

Dozens of other consumersare reporting unsolicited calls about lowering their energy rates.“With current technology, it can be difficult to determine if acall is legitimate or a scam, and with fluctuating temperatures andhigh bills, utility scams can be more effective,” Attorney GeneralDeWine said. “It’s important to remember that any time youreceive an unexpected call, you have the right to ask questions,demand answers or simply hang up.”In a recently reported scam, a caller — pretending to representa utility company — said the consumer’s electrical power wouldbe shut off unless the consumer sent hundreds of dollars using aprepaid money card. In reality, the call was not coming from theconsumer’s utility company.Consumers also are reporting unsolicited phone calls fromindividuals claiming they can lower consumers’ natural gas rates.The Attorney General’s Office has received approximately 100complaints about these calls in the last two months, and morethan 80 of the complaints were filed since July 1. In the com-plaints, consumers from Northeast Ohio generally report receiv-ing a call from a 740 or 440 area code phone number. The callerclaims to represent Dominion and offers a discount or a lower gasrate. Dominion East Ohio says these calls are not from Dominionand that the business does not solicit consumers over the phone.Consumers can help protect themselves by following thesetips:Don’t trust your caller ID. Callers can disguise the numberthat appears on your caller ID, making it very difficult to deter-mine where a call is coming from.Don’t respond to robocalls. Even if the call instructs you topress a button to opt out, don’t follow the instructions. By press-ing a button, you confirm that you have an active phone numberand you may receive even more calls.Ask callers to identify themselves and provide written infor-mation. If they refuse, it is probably not a legitimate business.Know your rights. Natural gas and electric companies gener-ally must give you a 14-day notice before disconnecting yourservice. Contact the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, www.puco.ohio.gov, to learn more and to compare electric or naturalgas offers in your region.When in doubt, hang up. If a caller claims to represent yourutility company but makes threats or demands immediate pay-ment, hang up and call your utility company using a number youknow to be legitimate, such as a number on your most recentstatement.Beware of requests for prepaid money cards. This is a pre-ferred payment method for scammers.Don’t give out personal information over the phone.Consumers who suspect a scam or an unfair business practiceshould contact the Ohio Attorney General’s Office at 800-282-0515 or www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov.
