DELPHOS — Katie Goergens of Delphosand 300 of her supporters will take a strollaround Oakwood today for the fifth annualOakwood Community Walk for Diabetes.Katie, 18, is one of more than 26 mil-lion diagnosed with diabetes and one of the 5 percent of those diagnosed withType 1. After being diagnosed just a littlemore than six months ago, her mom, LoriGoergens, wanted her to see that she wasnot the only person dealing with diabetes.“I wanted Katie to see she’s not aloneand that other people with diabetes can anddo lead a normal life,” Lori said. “I alsowanted her to go so she could be a rolemodel for the little kids and show them thatyou can be active and still play in sports.”Katie participates in volleyball, bas-ketball and track and has remained activethroughout the entire process of learningabout her diabetes.She first started to realize somethingwas wrong during a basketball game whenshe could not see the other side of thecourt. At first, she thought her vision hadchanged and she might need glasses butafter going to the eye doctor, still havingproblems seeing and reoccurring head-aches, Katie and her mom thought it had tobe something else.They also noticed Katie always seemedto be thirsty, which was a sign of high bloodsugar, but at the time, they did not know.After going to the doctor and gettingtests done, Lori received a phone callfrom the doctor’s office telling her to takeKatie to the emergency room right awaybecause her blood sugar was over 780.“I knew other people who were diabetic,so right away I knew what it meant,” Lorisaid. “It tore me up because I didn’t wanther to have to go through it.”Katie didn’t think it was a big deal.“It didn’t hit me because I didn’t reallyknow what it meant until I finally realizedhow much time it took me each day to doeverything I have to for it,” she said.Lori and Katie received a quick trainingfrom the hospital about how to take careof her diabetes but said it has really been alearning experience to figure out what Katieneeds to do to balance her meals and activi-ties to maintain a healthy blood sugar level.

AG clears Ohio campaignto expand Medicaid
COLUMBUS (AP) — Supporters of expanding Medicaid inOhio were cleared by state officials Friday to continue their fledglingeffort to put the issue before voters next year if state lawmakers failto act on the matter.The group Healthy Ohioans Work is leading the campaign thatcould put an expansion of the federal-state program on ballots inNovember 2014 but it must clear several more steps before voterscould weigh in.Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine on Friday said the group’spetition contained the necessary 1,000 valid signatures from Ohioregistered voters as well as a “fair and truthful” summary of the pro-posed constitutional amendment.The Ohio Ballot Board must now review the proposal in orderfor the advocates to continue their effort. Supporters must then gather115,574 valid signatures from registered voters. Once those are veri-fied, the General Assembly has four months to act on the proposedlaw. If legislators pass, amend or take no action, then a supplementalpetition may be circulated to get it before Ohio voters.
