Schools promote food allergy safety
BY STEPHANIE GROVESStaff Writersgroves@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — School isback in session and studentsreturning to the classroom whosuffer from severe allergiesrequire a plan of action. Frommedications to meals, kids, par-ents and all school personnelmust to be equipped to managea food allergy reaction.Delphos City SchoolsSchool Nurse Stacey Rickersaid the first couple weeks of school are spent going throughemergency medical forms andidentifying students at risk. If astudent has an allergy — food,bee sting, environmental,etc.— a care plan is sent homefor the parents to complete assoon as possible. These careplans are kept in each officefor quick and easy access if a student reports with allergicreactions. Care plans are alsocompleted for students withasthma, seizures, diabetes orany medical condition whichmay require prompt interven-tion by staff members. All staff members who have weeklycontact with an affected stu-dent are notified of the allergy.“Emergency action plansare developed for each studentstating ‘if you see this,’ ‘dothis’, Ricker detailed.The emergency action plansare made to be easily under-stood by anyone who maycome in contact with the stu-dent. The care plans, actionplans and emergency medica-tion go with the student onall field trips. St. John’s NurseJean Gemmer said every stu-dent with allergies to food isdifferent and reactions canrange from vomiting to ana-phylaxis. The treatment of theirallergy symptoms also vary.“We follow the physi-cian guidelines and orders,”Gemmer explained. “We havea Food Allergy Action Plan forour students, a central locationfor medication and work closelywith the parents and student.”Ricker said that any medi-cation brought into DelphosCity Schools requires health-care provider instructions andsignature on the school’s med-ication forms.“We have specific forms forthe life-saving medication epi-nephrine, which is the injectionadministered for anaphylacticreactions to allergies,” Rickerexplained. “All students withsevere peanut allergies haveepi-pens [Epinephrine] in theschool office.”“Some of our students haveEpi-pens for use for severeallergic reactions,” Gemmerdetailed. “We follow the indi-vidualized plan for each stu-dent from their physician.”Ricker said that designated staff members are trained and certifiedon administering the injection andother medications by the schoolnurses. Depending on the physi-cian’s orders, some students maycarry their own epi-pens and somestudents may have two epi-pens inthe school clinic or office. If a childis permitted to carry their own epi-pen, Ohio law states a back-up penmust be provided to the schooloffice. If an epi-pen would haveto be used in this District, 911 willalways be called by the staff.Mostlysunny thismorning thenbecoming part-ly cloudy laterin the day andinto tonight.

Locals may see afamiliar face during one set of the auditions but they mightnot recognize the voice.When Brad Wannemachersang in the St. John’s HighSchool choir, no one reallynoticed. The 2009 graduatewas more concerned withgolf than singing.“I really like to sing butI didn’t have the confidencethen to let everyone hear myvoice,” Wannemacher saidfrom Nashville in a phoneinterview with The Herald.“I decided that if I was goingto change my life, I had tochange. I put myself out thereand won a spot on the show.This is the craziest thing I’veever done. It was amazingand incredible.”Wannemacher said thenotoriously ruthless “XFactor” judge Simon Cowelland the rest were very cordialand genuinely interested.“I told the judges I wasfrom Delphos, Ohio, and theyall said, ‘Where in the heck isDelphos, Ohio?’ They askedme what I was doing andwhen I told them I was major-ing in recording industry, theywere impressed,” he said.Wannemacher is a seniorat Middle Tennessee Stateand while he’s in the heart-land of country music, heprefers pop/rock.“Most people come toNashville to make a namein the country music busi-ness,” Wannemacher said.“I’m just here to study andget my degree. I like pop/rock music.”

This is the first book totell the complete story of theincredible 1988 season thatbrought the fledgling FightingIrish back to the top of col-lege sports in what manyconsider to be the greatestunbeaten season of collegefootball ever played. With acompletely unlikely but for-ever memorable cast of char-acters—including the slight,lisping coach Lou Holtz; thestar quarterback, Tony Rice;five-foot-nothing Asian kick-er, Reggie Ho; NFL-boundRicky Watters; and a crazedand ferocious defensive line,among others—Notre Damewhipped millions of fans intoa frenzy. This roller coasterseason of football includesthe infamous Catholics vs.Convicts game (Notre Damevs. Jimmy Johnson’s #1ranked Miami Hurricanes).The two teams were unde-feated when they met at NotreDame Stadium, with the Irishwinning in the final secondsby a final score of 31-30.With original reporting andinterviews with everyone fromthe players to the coaches,detailed research and accessto the Notre Dame archives,Jerry Barca tells a grippingstory of anunbelievableseason andthe playerswho wouldbecome leg-ends. Morethan a NotreDame book,“Unbeatable”is a compel-ling narrativeof one of themost incredi-ble sports sto-ries of the lastcentury—the unlikelytale of anunderdogteam comingtogether andmaking history.
