Letter from EMT gives sobering effects of layoffs
By NANCY SPENCERHerald Editornspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — A large crowdwaited through back-to-backexecutive sessions of DelphosCity Council Monday evening.Councilman Kevin Ostingcalled the first executive sessionfor the discussion of contracts andwages with council and MayorMichael Gallmeier attending.Safety Service Director GregBerquist called the second fordiscussion of contract negotia-tions with council, Law DirectorClayton Osting, Berquist and themayor in attendance.Once back in regular ses-sion, Council Clerk MarshaMueller read correspondencefrom Diane Pack, a Delphosmedic. It read:
Mr. Mayor, Mr. Berquist andcity council members, 
You have stated that theDelphos EMS would not be affect-ed by the layoffs of the fire depart-ment. I would like to take thisopportunity to explain to you howincorrect this statement is andhow devastating these layoffs of our firemen will indeed be to theDelphos EMS.With only one fireman on dutyinstead of two, there is the pos-sibility that we will have no firstresponder. This means that when acitizen has a heart attack, insteadof our firemen arriving on scenein three to five minutes, the cit-izen will instead wait between15-20 minutes for the arrival of anambulance. After six minutes of no oxygen to the brain, this citizenwill either be deceased or left withpermanent and irreversible braindamage. This, of course, is justone example.Our firemen are on the scene of an EMS call 12-15 minutes beforethe ambulance arrives. They havethe scene safe for us to enter,secured and under control. Theyhave any bleeding controlled, oxy-gen on the patient and vital signsobtained. When necessary, theyhave CPR started as well. They areable to radio to the ambulance crewand let us know what equipment tobring in or have set up and readyupon our arrival. This is called thetier system and has been provento be the most effective in savinglives and providing the highest-quality patient care.Given the number of elderlyresidents in Delphos, in additionto all our children, one wouldthink that keeping our fire andEMS as it is now, effectively sav-ing lives, would be a priority.By reducing the number of ourfiremen, the potential for our citi-zens to die while waiting on thearrival of an ambulance is greatlyincreased. Imagine that citizen isyou, or a loved one. Would yourather wait three minutes or 15minutes for emergency medicalservices?At times, in severe cases, theambulance crew needs another setof hands. If we are short -staffedor if there is no advanced EMT orparamedic in the ambulance, thefirefighter will go on the squadrun with the EMS crew. With nofirst response, we may not be ableto staff an ambulance in all situ-ations.The layoffs at the fire depart-ment will cost us our only twofirefighter/paramedics. Thisleaves the city with only threeparamedics on the EMS side andzero on the fire side.One of our medics is only ableto work midnight to 6 a.m. fivedays a week and limited hoursthroughout the day and eveningon the weekends. Another onlyworks from 6 p.m. to midnight afew nights a week.The third works a limitedamount of shifts throughout theweek. The citizen who has a car-diac-related emergency will belucky to time his or her emergen-cy properly so that one of thesethree medics will be available toadminister cardiac medications.EMT basics and EMT advanced,our other two levels of EMS per-sonnel, are not able to provideadvanced cardiac are or administerthese cardiac drugs.

Former paper boy Holdenrecounts friendships
BY STEPHANIE GROVESStaff Writersgroves@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — Back in 1944, when JackHolden was a sprite 12-year-old, he and theother paper boys spent countless hours fold-ing papers in the basement of the DelphosHerald.“My friend, Jim McKowen, and I foldedpapers together,” Holden said.“All the paper boys went around the backof the building and down the steps to thebasement to fold papers. Sometimes the presswould break down and they would have to waiton papers, so they would play ball out back.”Holden said he delivered papers in theevening by bicycle on Route K, which encom-passed South Main Street down Suthoff andinto the country on Route 66.“I delivered about 40 papers every day,”Holden said. “The weather never stalled us.When it poured, we waited and when itsnowed, I still rode my bicycle.”Holden said that Saturday delivery includedcollecting money for subscriptions from hiscustomers. When they paid their subscrip-tions, he would hole-punch a card with thecustomer’s information on it to show they paid.“It was important to have a job; it was justenjoyable working with my friends,” Holdenreminisced.
Finance Committeereceives six 2014Budget options
BY NANCY SPENCERHerald Editornspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — The Delphos City Finance Committee held ashort meeting following the regular council meeting Monday.Committee members were given six different variations of athe 2014 budget by Safety Service Director Greg Berquist to goover.“If you have any questions, please email me and include theother members so everyone knows what was asked and I willanswer to all of you,” Berquist said. “I need guidance from coun-cil as to what to do and what direction to go.”The variations include the recent staff reductions, furloughs,cuts in seasonal employees and health care costs.City Auditor Tom Jettinghoff reported he had made contactwith the Ohio Water Development Authority about deferringthe loan payment on the wastewater treatment plant. He said theOWDA had a few questions for him, which he answered, and hehad not heard back.Jim Knebel asked if the current figures for the General Fund,Water Fund and Wastewater Fund were available. Jettinghoff saidthose numbers would be generated at the end of the month andprovided at the first meeting in November.Rural resident Brenda Hoersten questioned cuts to the firedepartment and police department and “throwing more money” atthe wastewater treatment plant.“You guys are just approving more and more money to theplant that’s only six or seven years old and you don’t even knowif it’s going to fix it,” she said. “We are just throwing more moneyinto what I think is a money pit and not addressing the elephantin the room. Where is the dialog? It seems this side chit chats andthis side doesn’t know what’s going on.”Sandy Wilhem also spoke.“So we’ve seen the problem; what are we going to do aboutit?” she asked.Councilman Josh Gillespie asked how many employees takeadvantage of the health care plan offered by the city and was toldthere are 43.Finance Committee President Joe Martz asked for any ques-tions on the six budget proposals and added that if anyone felt theneed to have additional Finance Committee meetings to contacthim.

Village chief reports fourdaytime coyote sightings
BY STEPHANIE GROVESStaff Reportersgroves@delphosherald.com
SPENCERVILLE — Spencerville Police Chief Darin Cooktold village council Monday of resident sightings of coyotesprowling around in the daytime and one was close enough to ahouse to eat from a dog food bowl. He said seeing them in thedaytime is alarming and they will attack small dogs and cats.“Residents need to be cautious about leaving small childrenout in the yard unsupervised,” Cook warned. “These animalsare sick or hungry.”Cook says the plan is to put snares in the ditches to captureand destroy them.The police department has been running on a skeleton crew.With both full-time officers absent, Cook is the only full-timeofficer manning the department.“I have a lot of vacation time coming and I should not haveto forfeit the time,” Cook said.Cook also reported the police vehicles are in need of serviceand the department will not be responding to calls — fires orEMS — outside the village.“One has a check engine light on — which may be a sensorlight — and the other is being prepared for winter,” he detailed.Village Administrator Sean Chapman reported that he islooking for a new contract administrator for the WastewaterTreatment Project. During the Oct. 7 council meeting, Chapmanasked council to consider passing/accepting change order 2Gfrom Kirk Brothers Construction which changes the scope of the Water Treatment Project. Councilman Miller first referredto a motion he had made at the Aug. 5 council meeting wherehe moved “to move forward with Richard Kirk’s proposal andwith some thought, we need to figure a scope of work to keepCT Consultants on as contract administrator.”

FORT JENNINGS —Mayor Jim Smith discusseda washout area between StateRoute 634 and the river and anadditional three areas close toState Route 190 which couldcause potential problems inthe future during Tuesday’svillage council meeting.“We could get a camerafrom Columbus Grove —they have a tractor drivencamera — to see inside theline,” Smith said. “The costis $100 per hour to film it.”Smith would like to get afirm price on video taping theline. He also said because of the safety issues, he wouldlike to keep the farmers fromfarming those areas, whichrun perpendicular to the high-ways. Early conjecture is thepipe may have overflowedand caused blown seams dur-ing the flood in 2008.Council member GregBrown gave the PoliceCommittee report and saidthings have been quiet.At last month’s meeting,Brown reported a resident,who lives on Main Street, hasbeen refusing to pay a waterbill and although he reportshe is moving, the propertyis still in his name and heis responsible for the bill.Police Chief Ethyl Vaughnsaid that she has hand-deliv-ered the water bill to theresident explaining that theyhave to pay the water billuntil they sell the property.The resident has also beencited for junk cars.“The Main Street houseis collecting more cars andmore junk,” Brown said.Smith advised Vaughn tomeet with the resident andpoint out and explain all theviolations, take pictures,write it all down and havehim sign the paper.“I’ll have him sign anddate it,” Vaughn stated. “He’llhave 10 days .”“We’ll just follow up withthe court,” Smith said.Smith also gave Vaughna directive about upcomingschool sporting events.“Start working the sched-ule for boys and girls bas-ketball games,” Smith said.“Get with Todd Hoehn. Mostgames are out around 9 p.m.and start at 6 p.m.”Park Board Vice PresidentKari Amstutz said the 2014Park Giveaway will startNov. 1.“Tickets and a mailer tobe sent out are in process,”Amstutz said. “Proceedsfrom the 2013 Giveaway andFort Fest will be used for theconcession stand at the park.”Smith reported that a con-tractor has been hired to com-plete the electrical work con-necting the water pumps tothe existing wiring at the poleat the concession stand.“Once the electrical isconnected, the Lions willcomplete the remaining work— pouring concrete — aslong as the weather permits,”Smith said.
