City moves toward closing budget gap
BY NANCY SPENCERHerald Editornspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — City Auditor Tom Jettinghoff had good news for Delphos City Council at Wednesday’s special meeting. Loan payments totaling nearly $1.5 mil-lion have been deferred for six months.The Ohio Water Development Authority granted the deferment to extend the loans out six months past the scheduled last payment, keep-ing $525,000 in the Water Fund and nearly $900,000 in the Sewer Fund.The good news came on the heels of an executive session that opened the meeting. The session was called to discuss personnel matters, com-pensation of employees and con-tract negotiations.When council returned to regular session, Mayor Michael Gallmeier and Safety Service Director Greg Berquist announced a Memorandum of Understanding was reached with the firefighters’ union to delay the layoffs of the part-paid personnel for 45 days until the city receives word if it has been awarded a Safe Grant from Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the full salaries and benefit packages of three full-time firefighters.“We received a call from FEMA on Friday with questions for us to answer and then received a second call the same day to answer more,” Berquist said. “I would say they are giving us a good look for these funds.”The grant would re-employ the three full-time firefighters who received lay-off notices in early October for two years.“This would keep our fire depart-ment staffed at the previous levels,” Berquist said.Berquist said the administration is in progressive talks with the fire-fighters’ union for upcoming con-tracts.Berquist also reported Acting Fire Chief Kevin Streets has gone over the standard operating guide-lines for reduced staff. On an emer-gency medical call, the firefighter on duty will still act as a first responder with paramedics and EMTs to follow. On a fire call, two full-time firefighters will take two pieces of equipment and respond to the scene with part-paid person-nel responding to the station for additional equipment and then to the scene. With the previous staff-ing levels, the part-paid personnel would respond directly to the scene with the equipment brought by the full-time personnel.Council also voted 4-3 to have city employees pick up 4.75 per-cent of the estimated 9.43-percent increase in health insurance pre-miums. Councilman Mark Clement was one of the “no” votes. He stated that he didn’t believe the public would go for not passing on the full increase to employees with the city’s finances in their current state.“We are going to have to put in place water and sewer rate increases and we’re asking them to pass a .25-percent income tax increase,” Clement said. “I just don’t agree with not passing the full increase on to the employees.”The next regular city council meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Nov. 4.

Ottoville OKs $12K for water meter device
BY STEPHANIE GROVESStaff Writersgroves@delphosherald.com
OTTOVILLE — Board of Public Affairs member Phil Hilvers presented a quote to council members for the purchase of a new Sensus AutoRead water meter read-ing device, software and support during the village council meeting Monday evening.BPA members originally spoke with council about pur-chasing the new equipment at September’s council meeting and explained the benefits of the system. BPA member Dan Honigford said the handheld reader records the serial num-ber of the meter and takes the reading of 100 meters at a time. After reading the data, it is uploaded and there is no handwritten informa-tion. In addition, the system won’t charge a homeowner twice and notifies the user of missed meters and flags high- usage levels. Honigford said the handheld reader currently in use only takes eight read-ings and then the results have to be handwritten.Given the benefits of upgrading, council agreed to approve the purchase of the Sensus AutoRead for $12,069.Hilvers also reported in last month’s meeting that the village’s water tow-ers were recently inspected. The 1,000-gallon tower was found to be in good shape and the 2,000-gallon tower is in need of interior and exterior painting. He said the paint was flaking off and needs attention. Hilvers said BPA members are still working on getting quotes for the paint-ing of the towers so they have a plan of action and can get the painting completed before the next inspection.
See METER, page 13Using various fundraising activities, (Turtle Races, Gun Raffles, and Firemen’s Convention), along with generous donations from Ottoville VFW Post 3740 and Ottoville Lady Ott’s, the Ottoville Fire Department was able to purchase a set of “HURST Jaws of Life™” extrication tools for $22,050. This is a heavy-duty tool that can cut through metal or pry apart sections of an automobile. It is used especially to free people trapped in wrecked vehicles. During emergencies, when a few wasted seconds can cost lives, the Jaws of Life are brought in to remove victims from the crashed vehicle. These devices are also used to extricate victims from collapsed concrete and steel structures. Before being put into service, the department will go through extensive training in the proper and safe use of these tools. State Certified instructors will be used to conduct this class at an additional cost of more than $3,500. The department will continue to have fundraisers to purchase additional equipment that will enhance the usefulness of these tools. (Submitted photo)

Addams Family tickets on sale today
Information submitted
VAN WERT — Charles Addams’ weird and wonder-ful family comes to devilishly delightful life in a new musical comedy coming to the Niswonger at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 31. Presented by Dark Horse Productions, this mag-nificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, Drama Desk Award winner Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party), choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys), and Olivier Award-winning original directors and designers Phelim McDermott and Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter) with direction by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks.The Addams Family features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ulti-mate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.Come meet the family. We’ll leave the lights off for you.

 Lima Memorial offers free lung cancer screenings
Information submitted
LIMA — In observance of National Lung Cancer Awareness Month, Lima Memorial will offer a lim-ited number of free low-dose lung screenings to those at high risk for the disease in November. The screening is for smokers and former smokers age 55-79 with a 30 pack-year history or age 50 with a 20 pack-year his-tory and additional risk fac-tors. The screenings will be funded by the Lima Memorial Hope Fund, developed to sup-port Lima Memorial Health System patients with oncol-ogy related needs.“For us, it really is about expanding accessibility,” said G. Brooks Brennan, M.D., Medical Director of the Lima Memorial Radiology Department. “The goal is to detect the disease process at its earliest state, to improve survivability.”Launching the region’s first lung cancer screening program, Lima Memorial seeks to connect patients at high risk for developing lung cancer with resources for early detection. A multidisci-plinary team has developed a comprehensive program to better detect, treat and edu-cate high risk individuals against lung cancer.“We have tailored our program considering recom-mendations from multiple national medical organiza-tions and will additionally provide patients with preven-tative options to educate them on reducing their risk for can-cer,” said Brennan.Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S.; each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast and prostate can-cers combined. The American Cancer Society estimates there will be 228,190 new lung cancer cases diagnosed this year alone and that 72,220 women and 87,260 men will die from the disease, whose leading cause is tobacco use and second-hand smoke.For more information or to receive a screening assess-ment, call 419-226-5030.

 Information submitted
ELIDA — The University of Northwestern Ohio cur-rently has students from 40 states and 24 foreign coun-tries. On Nov. 7, 28 UNOH students from 12 differ-ent countries will be host-ing an International Fair for Elida Elementary students in kindergarten through 4th grade! The International Fair lasts from 9 a.m.-noon and will take place at the Elida Fieldhouse.Countries represented include Brazil, Colombia, Croatia, England, France, Germany, New Zealand, Serbia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and Vietnam. There will also be stations for inter-national food, music and sports. The schedule is as fol-lows:9:10–9:55 a.m.: Kindergarten10–10:55 a.m.: 3rd & 4th-Graders11–11:55 a.m.: 2nd-GradersStudents will be split up amongst all the stations and get four-five minutes at each booth to talk to the students and ask questions about their home country.The International Fair was an idea started after the UNOH international students visited different classrooms at Elida Elementary through-out the fall. Teachers in each of the classrooms loved the interaction between the younger children and students from another country. One of the learning objectives at the second-grade level is about culture, so this partnership is a great way for the stu-dents to meet one of their learning standards and get to actually meet and talk to col-lege students from a different country.
