St. John’s welcomes two new pastors
BY NANCY SPENCERDHI Media Editornspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — There are two new faces in St. John’s Parish. Fathers Ron Schock and Daniel Johnson are filling associate pastor positions. While the two men share the same goals in their service, they couldn’t be more different.Schock, 55, found his calling under the wheels of a semi during a sled pull at the county fair. He was 23 years old and was the flag man at the pull at Seneca County Fairgrounds.“The driver was the first to go so he could do a second pull if he wanted. I asked if he would like to. He said yes and I stepped around his semi cab to let the judges know he was going to go again and he didn’t see me. When he started forward, he knocked me down. I felt his wheels roll up my leg and back and his bumper hit me in the back of the head. They got his attention and he stopped and thank goodness he pulled the clutch because if he had hit the brakes, he would have killed me.”During the accident, Schock said his life passed before his eyes and he didn’t like what he saw.“I was self-centered, selfish and very materialistic. I was arguing with them in the ambulance to not cut my boots off,” he recalled. “When I got to the ER, all I saw was the bright lights and heard the doctor say the next 24 hours would be critical and determine if I lived or died. That was the turning point in my life. I got the call to be selfless.”Once he recovered, Schock became involved in the church by teaching catechism. His aunt, a Tiffin Franciscan nun, told him he better figure out what his purpose was.“God is keeping you around for some reason,” she told him.Schock entered the seminary at 29 and when he did his internship, all the pieces fell into place.“I knew this was what God was asking of me,” he said. “I am here to share the love of Jesus Christ with everyone I meet and bring people closer to the Lord.”

Van Wert County Commissioners Todd Wolfrum and Thad Lichtensteiger go over the allegations concerning the county dog warden during Thursday’s meeting. (DHI Media/Ed Gebert)
Commissioners fire dog warden
BY ED GEBERTDHI Median Editornews@delphosherald.com
VAN WERT — After viewing and discussing the results of an inves-tigation by the Van Wert County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday morning, the Van Wert County Commissioners announced the firing of County Dog Warden Rich Strunkenberg.Commissioner Thad Lichtensteiger listed the following reasons for the move: incompetency, inef-ficiency, gross neglect of duty, misfeasance, malfea-sance, non-feasance, and failure of good behavior for the following four reasons: 1) failure to supply adequate food and water to the dogs, 2) failure to adequately clean the kennel and cage area, 3) failure to secure dead animals in the facility, 4) failure to supply adequate care and attention to the animals.An investigation into allegations against Strunkenberg was initiated by Van Wert County Sheriff Tom Riggenbach after an anonymous complaint was received at the sher-iff’s office about a week and a half ago. The alle-gations were not released last week, but Riggenbach told the media that it con-cerned poor conditions at the animal shelter and that conditions were “not what was acceptable to me,” he stated.Riggenbach was placed in charge of Strunkenberg one year ago to provide more oversight and to coor-dinate response to animal control calls. The sheriff reported that Strunkenberg had been doing a good job in duties he observed, but admitted he had not been inside the kennel at the shel-ter. A disciplinary hearing was held Tuesday and the results of that hearing were considered by the commis-sioners along with a confer-ence with Riggenbach, and viewing various reports and photographs of the interior of the kennel.The motion for the ter-mination of Strunkenberg passed on a 2-0 vote with both Lichtensteiger and Todd Wolfrum voting the motion. Commissioner Stan Owens is on vacation this week but Lichtensteiger noted that Owens had been involved in the discussion of the case and that “he was absolutely on board with the termination,” reported Lichtensteiger.With Strunkenberg ter-minated from the position, the commissioners are planning to get together with Riggenbaugh and the Humane Society board in about two weeks to discuss the next steps for the posi-tion.

Congress OKs VA, highway bills, not border measure
BY DAVID ESPOAssociated Press
WASHINGTON — Congress ran full-tilt into election-year gridlock over immigration Thursday and staggered toward a five-week summer break after failing to agree on legislation to cope with the influx of young immigrants flocking illegally to the United States.Faring far better, a bipartisan, $16 billion measure to clean up after a scandal at the Department of Veterans Affairs and a second bill to prevent a cutoff in highway funding gained final passage in the Senate and were sent to President Barack Obama for his signature.With lawmakers eager to adjourn, legislation to send Israel $225 million for its Iron Dome missile defense system was blocked, at least initially, by Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.Three months before midterm elections, the unbreakable dispute over immigration exposed not only enduring disputes between the parties, but also differences inside the ranks of House Republicans and among Senate Democrats.And a new outburst of harsh partisan rhetoric between lead-ing officials in both parties served as yet another reminder that after 18 months in office, the current Congress has little to show for its efforts apart from abysmally low public approval ratings.House Speaker John Boehner accused Democrats of pursu-ing a “nutso scheme” of trying to seize on the border crisis to try and grant a path to citizenship to millions of immigrants living in the country illegally.Countering, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said blame for failing to fix problems at the border rested with Republicans. He charged they have refused to provide “the necessary resources to deal with what they themselves describe as a serious problem.”Despite Boehner’s accusation, it was Republican unity that cracked first during the day.A few hours after Boehner spoke, Republicans abruptly canceled a vote on their own border security legislation, a $659 million measure that also would make it easier to deport the children from Central America now flooding into the United States. They did so after a revolt by tea party-aligned GOP lawmakers, some of whom had conferred with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz the night before.They argued that the leadership’s offer of a vote on a com-panion bill, even if it were approved, would fall short of revers-ing a 2012 administration policy under which 500,000 immi-grants living in the country illegally have obtained work permits.A short while later, a $2.7 billion Democratic alternative to ease the crisis at the border perished in the Senate, blocked by Republicans and two Democrats seeking the right to seek changes.So chaotic was the day that after initially announcing the House had taken its last vote, Republicans abruptly reversed course and announced plans to reconvene today for a possible vote on legislation related to border security and immigration — details yet to be determined.

COLUMBUS — Ohio State University's fired marching band director was working to fix a vulgar culture "in dire need of change" before he was dismissed last week, he said in a document released by his attorney.The university fired Jonathan Waters last week after a two-month investigation con-cluded he knew about, but failed to stop, a "sexualized culture" of rituals that included students being pressured to march in their underwear and to perform sexually themed stunts that yielded often-explicit nicknames.Waters' halftime shows are considered revolutionary. Videos of the morphing and dancing images the band cre-ates on the field have drawn millions of hits on YouTube and landed it in an Apple com-mercial.Waters detailed the chang-es he was trying to make in a seven-page document prepared when the university began investigating allegations of sexual harassment within the band. His attor-ney released the document Wednesday night. Waters said he instituted leadership retreats for section leaders and staff; hosted a national hazing-prevention event; ensured the band's formal dance was alcohol-free; and disci-plined students who were behind an under-ground band newsletter, the "Trip-Tic," that had grown increasingly vulgar.In the document, Waters said that he rec-ognized upon taking over the band 20 months earlier that aspects of its culture were "ves-tiges representing cultural norms from eras gone by" and that culture needed to change.He said the band staff had begun a process of "concentrated pressure for real, lasting change within the organization," under the belief that "the best and most permanent change occurs from within the organization."Attorney David Axelrod said investigators did not acknowledge the contents of the docu-ment in their report, and the band alumni asso-ciation has suggested Waters wasn't afforded due process."You would think that if they wanted to be fair, they would say he did do these things but it wasn't enough," Axelrod said. "But that's not what they did."A university spokesman had no immedi-ate comment on the document submitted by Waters or its place in the investigation. The report states it was received July 14, after Waters was twice questioned by investigators."The document does not change the analy-sis in this report," they wrote. Investigators found Waters was aware about half of band nicknames were offensive, was in charge when a suggestive trick was per-formed on a band bus, and was allowing the underwear march to proceed until he learned of the investigation.Waters' firing has touched off a maelstrom for new Ohio State President Michael Drake, who has said the culture hostile to students that was uncovered by investiga-tors was demeaning and unac-ceptable. He has enlisted former Ohio Attorney General Betty Montgomery to lead a task force in a full review.The band's alumni association says its own ongoing review contradicts aspects of the uni-versity's investigation."The honor and traditions of generations of members and staff of the Ohio State University Marching Band have been misrepresented, insulted and dishonored by the release of the unbalanced Investigation Report, together with attachments long predating the term of Mr. Waters as the director," the TBDBITL Alumni Club Inc. said in a statement.The group gets its name for the band's nickname, "The Best Damn Band in the Land."Gary Leppla, the club's legal chair, said the group feels the university rushed to judgment and is calling for Waters' reinstatement."Let's use common sense. We want to get it right. Is this guy the problem, or is he the solution? We believe, based on our investiga-tion, he's the solution," said Leppla, a band alum and former Ohio State Bar Association president.Axelrod said Waters was traveling the coun-try raising money from alumni for Ohio State at the time of his firing. He made 25 appear-ances in cities around the country, he said.

LOS ANGELES — Repair crews on Thursday were shoring up a giant hole in the middle of Sunset Boulevard caused by a ruptured pipe, as officials at the water-logged University of California, Los Angeles, continued to assess damage from the 20 million gallons that inun-dated the campus.Workers were reinforcing the exca-vated 56-by-41-foot crater and mak-ing the site safe for crews, said Mike Miller, district superintendent for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. Meanwhile, workers off-site were fash-ioning new valves and a Y-joint con-nector to replace the burst section of the century-old steel line.The Department of Water and Power said work on the pipe itself was expected to be completed late Friday or early Saturday. Then work could begin on repairing the famed boulevard, a heavily traveled east-west thoroughfare, pushing reopening well into the weekend."There's still just a lot of work to do out here," Miller said. "We're still shoot-ing to have this done, at least the repair to the main by Friday."UCLA officials said six facilities were damaged in Tuesday's flooding and about 960 vehicles remained trapped in garag-es, with many below water left behind by the roiling flood.Rich Mylin, associate director of events and facilities, led a tour Wednesday of affected areas for Department of Water and Power workers in hard hats, and they snapped photos and took notes.The flooding sent water cascading into the Pauley Pavilion, less than two years after a $136 million renovation.UCLA Vice Chancellor Kelly Schmader said 8 to 10 inches of water covered the basketball court, and it showed signs of buckling. The floor will be repaired or replaced as neces-sary and will be ready by the start of the basketball season this fall, Athletic Director Dan Guerrero said.On Wednesday evening, six men helping to pump water from the pavilion were treated for exposure to carbon monoxide from a genera-tor's exhaust, city fire spokeswoman Katherine Main said. Two were taken to a hospital in fair condition, and four were treated at the scene.
Repairing burst Los Angeles main could take days
HONOLULU (AP) — A white hearse pulled up to the entrance of a downtown Honolulu cathedral Thursday, car-rying the remains of a saint known for caring for exiled leprosy patients in the 1880s.A metal box containing the remains of St. Marianne Cope was carried into the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace for what was a cross between a funeral Mass and a homecoming ceremony.She was 80 when she died of natural causes in 1918 at the remote Kalaupapa peninsula on the island of Molokai, where leprosy patients were exiled. Her remains were exhumed from Kalaupapa in 2005 and taken to Syracuse, New York, where her religious congregation is based.Born Barbara Koob in Germany, she immigrated with her family to Utica, New York, when she was a year old. In 1883, the nun accepted a mission to care for leprosy patients in Hawaii.She gained sainthood in 2012 after the Vatican authen-ticated two miracles that were a result of her intercession.Relocation from New York was necessary because the buildings of the campus where her remains were housed are no longer structurally sound, requiring the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities to move to another part of Syracuse.St. Francis sisters carried the box into the cathedral atop a carrier made out of koa wood in the shape of a canoe.It makes sense to keep her remains in Honolulu, as opposed to Kalaupapa, which can be accessed only via plane or mule, said Bishop Larry Silva of the Honolulu diocese.Hundreds packed into the cathedral, where people lined up for a chance to kiss the box, wrapped in a Hawaiian funerary cloth and draped with lei and a quilt bearing a Hawaiian flag design."The mortal remains of this frail creature of God...have an incredible spirit of their own, an aura that makes us want to be near them, to be changed by the very odor of holiness that emanates from them," Silva said in his homily. "We want to touch the relics of this woman who dedicated herself to heal-ing, so that we may be healed and may be healers."The remains — a full collection of her bones — arrived Sunday in a casket aboard a United Airlines flight from Newark, New Jersey, said diocese spokesman Patrick Downes.After Thursday's Mass, diocese officials planned to place the sealed zinc-coated metal box containing the bones upright in a koa and glass cabinet in the cathedral. The dis-play cabinet already contained her relic, a small box of bone fragments a nun brought to Honolulu in 2011. The relic was taken on a tour of the Hawaiian islands.The diocese plans to build a chapel at the 170-year-old cathedral where her remains will be entombed underground, said Alika Cullen, cathedral general administrator.

NonfictioniRules by Janell Burley Hofmann
As Janell Burley Hofmann, mother of five, wrapped her 13-year-old’s iPhone on Christmas Eve, she was overwhelmed by questions: “Will my children learn to sit and wonder with-out Googling? Should I know their passwords for online accounts? Will they experi-ence the value of personal connection without technol-ogy?” To address her con-cerns, she outlined boundar-ies and expectations in a con-tract for her son to sign upon receiving his first cellphone. When Hofmann’s editor at The Huffington Post posted the contract, now known as iRules, it resonated on a mas-sive scale and went viral, resulting in a tsunami of media coverage and requests. It quickly became apparent that people across the country were hungry for more.In iRules, Hofmann pro-vides families with the tools they need to find a balance between technology and human interaction through a philosophy she calls Slow Tech Parenting. In the book, she educates parents about the online culture tweens and teens enter the minute they go online, exploring issues like cyberbullying, friend fail, and sexting, as well as helping parents create their own iRules contracts to fit their families’ needs. As funny and readable as it is prescriptive, iRules will help parents figure out when to unplug and how to stay in sync with the changing world of technology, while teaching their children self-respect, integrity, and responsibility.
The Mockingbird Next Door: Life with Harper Lee by Marja Mills
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is one of the best loved novels of the 20th cen-tury. But for the last 50 years, the novel’s celebrated author, Harper Lee, has said almost nothing on the record. Journalists have trekked to her home-town of Monroeville, Alabama, where Harper Lee, known to her friends as Nelle, has lived with her sister, Alice, for decades, try-ing and failing to get an inter-view with the author. But in 2001, the Lee sisters opened their door to Chicago Tribune  journalist Marja Mills. It was the beginning of a long conversation—and a great friendship. In 2004, with the Lees’ blessing, Mills moved into the house next door to the sisters. She spent the next 18 months there, shar-ing coffee at McDonald’s and trips to the laundromat with Nelle, feeding the ducks and going out for catfish supper with the sisters and explor-ing all over lower Alabama with the Lees’ inner circle of friends. Nelle shared her love of history, literature, and the Southern way of life with Mills, as well as her keen sense of how journalism should be practiced. As the sisters decided to let Mills tell their story, Nelle helped make sure she was getting the story—and the South—right. Alice, the keeper of the Lee family history, shared the stories of their family. The Mockingbird Next Door is the story of Mills’s friendship with the Lee sisters. It is a testament to the great intelli-gence, sharp wit, and tremen-dous storytelling power of these two women, especially that of Nelle. Mills was given a rare opportunity to know Nelle Harper Lee, to be part of the Lees’ life in Alabama, and to hear them reflect on their upbringing, their corner of the Deep South, how To Kill a Mockingbird affected their lives, and why Nelle Harper Lee chose to never write another novel.

Latta proposes two bills for heroes
 WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) on Thursday introduced two pieces of legislation to support our nation’s heroes. The Veterans Air Travel Streamlining Act would enable veter-ans with a service-connected disability rating of 50 percent or greater to utilize TSA Precheck’s expedited airport screening process at no cost. The VA Appeals Backlog Relief Act would expedite the pro-cessing of U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) appeals claims.“The Veterans Air Travel Streamlining Act would provide an opportunity for us to show our gratitude to the men and women who have so bravely and selflessly served this coun-try,” said Latta. “Allowing our wounded heroes to participate in TSA’s Precheck program free of charge would enable these veterans to bypass certain screening procedures that can be time consuming given their injuries, while maintaining neces-sary security procedures in our airports.”
