The American Cancer Society marks the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November each year by encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day. By quitting — even for one day — smokers will be tak-ing an important step towards a healthier life – one that can lead to reducing cancer risk.This year, we’re celebrat-ing quitters and their sup-porters with a series of fun characters designed for social sharing on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. We’ve also got lots of other resources and information to help you quit for good.Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and prema-ture death in the US, yet about 43.8 million Americans still smoke cigarettes — nearly 1 in every 5 adults. As of 2010, there were also 13.2 million cigar smokers in the US and 2.2 million who smoke tobac-co in pipes — other danger-ous and addictive forms of tobacco.
Why quit?
The health benefits of quitting start immediately from the moment of smok-ing cessation. Quitting while you are younger will reduce your health risks more but quitting at any age can give back years of life that would be lost by continuing to smoke.How does your body recover after certain amounts of time?20 minutes — Your heart rate and blood pressure drop.12 hours — The carbon monoxide level in your blood drops to normal.2 weeks to 3 months — Your circulation improves and your lung function increases.1-9 months — Coughing and shortness of breath decrease; cilia start to regain normal function in the lungs, increasing the ability to han-dle mucus, clean the lungs and reduce the risk of infec-tion.1 year — The excess risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a continuing smoker.5 years — Risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esopha-gus and bladder are cut in half. Cervical cancer risk falls to that of a non-smoker. Stroke risk falls to that of a non-smoker after 2-5 years.

Principal shares safety innovation
BY NANCY SPENCERHerald Editornspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — An Ottoville teacher’s ingenuity will serve to make students safer in his district. Jim Brown fashioned wooden braces for classroom doors that slide over the door handle with 2-x-4’s on both sides to hug the door frame to prevent it from being opened from the outside by an intruder.High School Principal Jon Thorbahn demonstrated the device for the school board Wednesday evening. The device was tested during a recent lockout drill at the school.“This is a simple idea that works really well,” Thorbahn said. “We will test it again over Thanksgiving break and really try to get the door open. That way we have some time to fix the door if anything happens.”Superintendent Scott Mangas said he received the final quotes for key-card entry and camera/speaker systems for the two main entrances to the school.“The estimates from Indiana Hardware came in less than the $10,000 grant,” Mangas said. “We’ll have those installed as soon as possible. We also have the new MARCS radios for the buses and they are being pro-grammed and we’ll get the training done.”The radios will allow for contact between bus drivers and the school in the event the power goes out and the phones go down and if cell phone reception is interrupt-ed. It is also a direct line to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.The board approved a res-olution authorizing Ottoville Local Schools to participate in the State of Ohio Cooperative Purchasing Program. Mangas said the district is looking at purchasing a Gator from John Deere, who is a member of the cooperative.“If we join the coopera-tive for $100, we can get $1,500-$1,700 off the Gator,” Mangas said. “That’s a pretty good return on $100.”Before the close of the meeting, Mangas presented outgoing school board mem-ber Craig Byrne with a wood-en bell commemorating his service to the board.“Craig was really the thrust behind our outdoor lab and that is doing very well and is an asset to the district,” Mangas said.Byrne served four years on the board. His replace-ment is Marilyn Calvelage.In the High School Report, Thorbahn announced parent/teachers conferences will take place Monday evening and all day Tuesday.Thorbahn also announced the student council-run Toys for Tots drive will get underway once students return from Thanksgiving break.The school will host a Community Blood Drive from noon to 6 p.m. on Dec. 27.Student-athletes were commended for their post-season honors. In girls soc-cer, Monica Sarka was named First-Team PCL; Alena Horstman and Courtney Von Sossan, Second Team; and Danielle Trenkmap, Lexi Wannemacher and Carly Kortokrax, Honorable Mention. Scholar-Athletes are Horstman and Trenkamp. In district honors, Sarka was second team; and Horstman and Von Sossan were Honorable Mention.
Ottoville High School Principal Jon Thorbahn explains a simple device fashioned by an Ottoville teacher to slide over door handles during a lockdown in the school. Thorbahn said the school’s custodian has been working on a few modifications and the devices were tested during a recent lockdown drill and proved effective. The devices will be placed in every classroom. (Delphos Herald/Nancy Spencer)See SMOKE, page 10BY STEPHANIE GROVESStaff Writersgroves@delphosherald.com
FORT JENNINGS — Board members accepted the upcoming retirement/resigna-tion of the school’s Band Director, Rose Mary Warnecke, during the board meeting Wednesday night. Warnecke will continue through the 2014/15 school year under the Victory Lap Clause and her rehire date will take place at the regular board meeting on March 19, 2014.High School Principal Nicholas Langhals said the school was very lucky to have Mrs. Warnecke back for one more year.“The band had a successful trip (Disney) and there have been a lot of good comments,” Langhals added. “Mrs. Warnecke and the band members did a fine job representing the school.”Langhals reported on Race to the Top and said they just completed a meeting with the area representative, Nancy Allison, and completed a survey meeting all goals and expectations.“Everything is on schedule,” Langhals affirmed. “There have been talks of a fifth year to finish up things on a state level and no information about money for the district.”Board members approved Todd Hoehn as Putnam County League (PCL) basketball tournament manager and Rob Warnecke as the assistant tournament manager for the games which will be hosted by Fort Jennings High School.Members also approved the five-year fore-cast as submitted.“We make best-guess estimates and predic-tions we can,” Langhals stated.Board members approved the return of the advance of $185.60 back to the General Fund from the Title II-A Fund.In addition, members approved amending estimated receipts/appropriations where the receipts were greater than anticipated rev-enues, less than anticipated revenues, or not included in the original budget.The next school board meeting will be held in the library at 7:30 p.m. on Dec.18.

Every November, Community Health Professionals joins home health and hospice agencies nationwide to celebrate National Home Care and Hospice Month, honoring healthcare employees and raising awareness of in-home health services available to local residents.Private duty home care provides non-medical assistance for seniors and disabled clients, allowing them to stay at home amidst familiar surroundings and posses-sions, which has a positive effect on psy-chological well-being.Skilled home healthcare (visiting nurses) is a specific form of home care that is phy-sician-ordered and performed by registered nurses and therapists. Hospice care focuses on relieving symptoms and pain manage-ment for patients diagnosed with a terminal illness.Community Health Professionals pro-vides each of these core services to Allen, Putnam and Van Wert County residents, plus adult day care and inpatient hospice services.In coming years, home care and hospice are poised to play a key role. A wide range of forces is joining to drive care toward home and community-based services. Based on demography and dollars, experts agree that the destiny of health care lies in the home.The first of the 78 million baby boom-ers turned 65 last year, and the rest of the boomers will reach their golden years in the next two decades, making health care dol-lars grow even scarcer. As the “silver tsu-nami” sweeps on, the most important trend in health care is the shift from hospitals and nursing homes to home care, from treatment to proactive monitoring and care.However in coming decades, there will be even fewer family caregivers, according to a recent report from AARP. The study states that potential caregivers will be in much shorter supply starting in 2026 when the first boomers turn 80.The causes of this impending care gap lie in well-known trends including longer life spans, smaller families, more divorces among those 50 and older, more people who never had children, and rising rates of dis-ability associated with the obesity epidemic.The number of frail older people over 65 is also expected to increase from 11 million in 2010 to 18 million in 2030, the report notes. The percentage of frail older people who are childless is expected to rise from 14 to 18 percent during this period, and the ratio of frail, older people who have only one or two adult children is expected to increase from 38 to 49 percent.Most of these aging boomers will want to remain in their homes, but they may not be able to count on their families for long-term care when it’s needed.Technology will help close the gap. Telehealth and activity monitors avail-able now promote out-of-hospital care for chronic patients, solutions for healthy aging and help patients to self-manage their care.But technology will never replace the human touch.“Nurses, aides, social workers and vol-unteers are the heart of home health and hospice care,” said Brent Tow, CHP presi-dent and CEO. “They are more than care-givers for their patients. They also become friends, and almost family.”And that intimate, one-to-one care is another reason why home care is poised to a key role in health care in coming years.Community Health Professionals offers a complete range of home health and hos-pice services throughout northwest and west central Ohio. Home health, hospice and related services can begin with a phone call to 419-695-1999 in Delphos. Or visit www.ComHealthPro.org to learn more.

‘Stand your ground’ proposal clears Ohio House
COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio House has approved a measure making broad changes to the state’s gun laws, including the addition of a “stand your ground” self-defense rule that has sparked debates on gun control across the country.The measure passed 62-27 Wednesday amid protests from anti-gun groups, black legislators and others.The bill eliminates the duty to retreat in any place in which the person is lawfully allowed to be and makes concealed-carry licenses in Ohio and certain other states valid across state lines.Republican Rep. Terry Johnson said the bill brings reasonable safety protections to Ohioans.Democrats predicted it would foster violence. State Rep. Alicia Reece says opponents have jammed Republican Gov. John Kasich’s phone lines with calls to take their side.At least 22 states have similar self-defense laws.
