DELPHOS — Identity theft occurs when a criminal obtains and uses someone else’s personal information — credit card numbers, bank account numbers, insurance information or Social Security number — to pur-chase goods or services fraudulently. Identity theft is a state and federal crime.According to Javelin Strategy & Research’s 2014 Identity Fraud Study, there was one new identity fraud victim every two seconds in the US in 2013 and the number of victims climbed to 13.1 million.Delphos Police Chief Kyle Fittro reported that somebody stealing a plastic financial instrument — credit or debit card — and making pur-chases is pretty common with three or four reports each month.“Most of our bad guys are not sophisticated; they steal cards, make purchases and then we find them,” Fittro explained. “Conversely, there are jurisdictional boundaries and little we can do if someone out of state or out of the country gets a hold of account information and makes pur-chases online.”Fittro explained thieves who steal checks or credit cards are committing multiple crimes.“If it’s a credit card used, the crimes include theft and misuse,” Fittro detailed. “If they steal and use a check, the crimes are theft, forgery and uttering [passing a check].”First Federal’s Community Banking Center Manager Cindy Metzger said identity theft is a huge problem and there are frequent notifi-cations of new scams targeting bank-ing customers.An example of a phishing scam is where a customer is contacted by email, where a criminal posing as a representative for an account tells the victim their information was compro-mised and requests confirmation of their personal information.“That’s a prime example of how it all gets started,” Metzger said. “These criminals use fear as a tactic to get information.”Metzger described a vishing scam (automated phone calls from an orga-nization trying to obtain financial or other confidential information) where one elderly individual received a call and was told she would be arrested at work if she did not provide the infor-mation they requested.“It’s everywhere and not just in the big cities,” Metzger added. “Criminals seem to always be a step ahead.”Metzger cautions customers who receive suspicious emails. She said if the recipient hovers over the hyper link provided within the email which will direct them to another website, they should check the information on the link before clicking on it. If the website address looks like it is not associated with the institution — maybe it looks odd or it’s an address out of the country — do not click on the link.

DELPHOS — The Delphos Ministerial Association strives to exem-plify and support unity in the community and throughout the year, the group works as one to provide community services, like the upcom-ing Community Lenten Lunches, to do so.As stated in Ephesians 4:11-16, Christ is the head while the community is the body and the body grows when joined together and working properly. The 10 ministers in the DMA stand together in the belief that in unity and love, the commu-nity can grow.“I’m a part of the Ministerial Association to be an encourager of fel-low pastors as well as to be encouraged by them so that together we might build the kingdom of God within our community,” the Rev. Harry Tolhurst said.The members of the group include: Tolhurst of First Presbyterian Church, the Rev. Gary Fish of First Christian Union, Ron Lumm of Joint United Methodist Project (J.U.M.P.), Dave Howell of Trinity United Methodist Church, Angela Khabeb of St. Peter’s Lutheran and Dave Reinhart of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church; and pas-tors Dan Eaton of First Assembly of God, D.J. Fuerstenau of Zion United Methodist, Jane Brown of Ridge United Methodist Church and Linda Wannemacher of A.C.T.S. New Testament Fellowship.“Being together peri-odically helps us to work together in times of need,” Reinhart said. “The relation-ships built makes helping others possible.”The group works on two projects all year round: The Good Samaritan Ministry and visiting the Sarah Jane Living Center and Vancrest Healthcare Center and Assisted Living.

The Miami-Erie Canal went on a rampage Tuesday night and according to Henry Lang, canal foreman, it was his worst experience with the canal dur-ing his seven years in office. The warm weather Tuesday melted ice and caused a heavy flow and at 10 p.m., the canal was brimful. He used a pike pole to release ice jams at locks at Third Street and the abandoned paper mill. Ice cakes of large size jammed against lock struc-tures and caused water to back up to a threatening depth.Ben Weaver of the H. W.

FICTIONThe Daring Ladies of Lowell: A Novel by Kate Alcott
From the New York Times best-selling author of The Dressmaker comes a moving historical novel about a bold young woman drawn to the looms of Lowell, Mass., — and to the one man with whom she has no business falling in love. Eager to escape life on her fam-ily’s farm, Alice Barrow moves to Lowell in 1832 and throws herself into the hard work demanded of “the mill girls.” In spite of the long hours, she discovers a vibrant new life and a true friend—a saucy, strong-willed girl name Lovey Cornell. But conditions at the fac-tory become increasingly danger-ous, and Alice finds the courage to represent the workers and their grievances. Although mill owner, Hiram Fiske, pays no heed, Alice attracts the attention of his eldest son, the handsome and reserved Samuel Fiske. Their mutual attrac-tion is intense, tempting Alice to dream of a different future for her-self. This dream is shattered when Lovey is found strangled to death. A sensational trial follows, bring-ing all the unrest that’s brewing to the surface. Alice finds herself torn between her commitment to the girls in the mill and her blos-soming relationship with Samuel. Based on the actual murder of a mill girl and the subsequent trial in 1833, The Daring Ladies of Lowell brilliantly captures a transitional moment in America’s history while also exploring the complex nature of love, loyalty, and the enduring power of friend-ship.
Long Man: A novel by Amy Greene
A river called Long Man has coursed through East Tennessee from time immemorial, bringing sustenance to the people who farm along its banks and who trade among its small towns. But as Long Man opens, the Tennessee Valley Authority’s plans to dam the river and flood the town of Yuneetah for the sake of prog-ress—to bring elec-tricity and jobs to the region—are about to take effect. Just a few days remain before the river will rise, and most of the town has been evacuated. Among the holdouts is a young, headstrong mother, Annie Clyde Dodson, whose ancestors have lived for generations on her mountain-top farm; she’ll do anything to ensure that her three-year-old daughter, Gracie, will inherit the family’s land. But her husband wants to make a fresh start in Michigan, where he’s found work that will bring the family a more secure future. As the deadline looms, a storm as powerful as the emo-tions between them rages out-side their door. Suddenly they realize that Gracie is nowhere to be found. Has the little girl sim-ply wandered off into the rain? Or has she been taken by Amos, the mysterious drifter who has come back to Yuneetah, perhaps to save his hometown in a last, desperate act of vio-lence? Suspenseful, viscer-al, gorgeously told, Long Man is a searing portrait of a tight-knit commu-nity brought together by change and crisis, and of one family facing a ter-rifying ticking clock. A novel set in history that resonates with our own times, it is a dazzling and unforgettable tour de force.
The Chase: A Novel by Janet Evanovich
Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams. His greatest con of all: convincing the FBI to team him up with the only person who has ever caught him, and the only woman to ever capture his atten-tion, Special Agent Kate O’Hare. Together they’ll go undercover to swindle and catch the world’s most wanted—and untouch-able—criminals. Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House chief of staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency. Grove has stolen a rare Chinese artifact from the Smithsonian, a crime that will torpedo U.S. relations with China if it ever becomes public. Nick and Kate must work under the radar—and against the clock—to devise a plan to steal the piece back. Confronting Grove’s elite assassins, Nick and Kate rely on the skills of their ragtag crew, including a flamboyant actor, a Geek Squad techie, and a band of AARP-card-carrying mercenar-ies led by none other than Kate’s dad. A daring heist and a deadly chase lead Nick and Kate from Washington, D.C., to Shanghai, from the highlands of Scotland to the underbelly of Montreal. But it’ll take more than death threats, trained henchmen, sleep-less nights, and the fate of a dynasty’s price-less heirloom to outsmart Fox and O’Hare.
NONFICTIONWhere Nobody Knows Your Name: Life In the Minor Leagues of Baseball by John Feinstein
Baseball’s minor leagues are a paradox. For some players, the minors are a glo-rious launching pad toward years of fame and for-tune; for others, a crash-landing pad when injury or poor play forces a big leaguer back to a life of obscure ballparks and cramped buses instead of Fenway Park and plush charter planes. Focusing exclusively on the Triple-A level, one step beneath Major League Baseball, Feinstein introduces readers to nine unique men: three pitchers, three position players, two managers, and an umpire. Through their compelling stories, Feinstein pulls back the veil on a league that is chock-full of gifted baseball players, managers, and umpires who are all one moment away from getting called up—or back—to the majors.The stories are hard to believe: a first-round draft pick and pitch-ing ace who rocketed to major-league success before find-ing himself suddenly out of the game, hatch-ing a pre-sumptuous plan to get one more shot at the mound; a home run–hitting former World Series hero who lived the dream, then bounced among six teams before facing the pros-pects of an uncer-emonious end to his career; a big-league All-Star who, in the span of five months, went from being completely out of baseball to becoming a star in the ALDS, then signing a $10 million con-tract; and a well-liked designated hitter who toiled for 18 seasons in the minors—a record he never wanted to set—before facing his final, highly emotional chance for a call-up to the big leagues.From Raleigh to Pawtucket, from Lehigh Valley to Indianapolis and beyond, Where Nobody Knows Your Name gives readers an intimate look at a baseball world not normally seen by the fans. Feinstein gets to the heart of the human stories in a uniquely compelling way, crafting a masterful book that stands alongside his very best works.
The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies by Erik Brynjolfsson
In recent years, Google’s auton-omous cars have logged thousands of miles on American highways and IBM’s Watson trounced the best human Jeopardy! players. Digital technologies—with hard-ware, software and networks at their core—will in the near future diagnose diseases more accurate-ly than doctors can, apply enor-mous data sets to transform retailing and accomplish many tasks once considered unique-ly human. In The Second Machine Age MIT’s Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee —two thinkers at the forefront of their field — reveal the forces driving the reinven-tion of our lives and our economy. As the full impact of digital technologies is felt, we will realize immense bounty in the form of dazzling personal tech-nology, advanced infrastructure, and near-boundless access to the cultural items that enrich our lives. Amid this bounty will also be wrenching change. Professions of all kinds—from lawyers to truck drivers—will be forever upend-ed. Companies will be forced to transform or die. Recent economic indicators reflect this shift: fewer people are working, and wages are falling even as productivi-ty and profits soar. Drawing on years of research and up-to-the-minute trends, Brynjolfsson and McAfee identify the best strate-gies for survival and offer a new path to prosperity. These include revamping education so that it prepares people for the next economy instead of the last one, design-ing new collabora-tions that pair brute processing power with human ingenu-ity and embracing policies that make sense in a radically transformed land-scape. A fundamen-tally optimistic book, The Second Machine Age will alter how we think about issues of technological, societal, and economic progress.

 January storm could be one of costliest 
COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio insurance officials say the early January deep freeze, accompanied by heavy snow and ice, will end up being one of the costliest winter storms in the state in recent decades.Preliminary figures released Thursday by the Ohio Insurance Institute show that the bills for broken and frozen water pipes, ice buildup and wind damage Jan. 5-8 will end up running from $97.8 million to $124.4 million.The Columbus Dispatch reports that insurers have received 14,748 claims so far, with about three-quarters from homeowners. Most of the rest are from businesses.Wind chills as low as 49 below hit the state during that period along with ice, heavy snow and high winds. Several cities posted record low tem-peratures.Winter storms in Ohio had not caused this much damage since December 2004, when insured losses totaled $105 mil-lion in today’s prices. A blizzard in March 1993 caused insured losses of $193.5 million.
