DELPHOS — TheMiami-Erie Canal is oneof the key reasons thecity was settled and hasremained vital to local cul-ture. Now, a railing mark-ing the canal is in placenear Third Street.“The county engi-neer’s office put it up.We had an old, ratty rail-ing up there and took itdown when we replacedthe sidewalk the summerbefore last. We went fora year without a railing,so we decided we’d bet-ter get one up becauseit’s dangerous there; a lotof kids and stuff. First,we were going to put ourown railing up with somerailing we had left overfrom other places; we just needed the ends andcaps to hold the railingup. Then we got someprices from manufactur-ers. Then we came intowinter. Then the countycame and said they couldput it up for us,” MayorMichael Gallmeier said.The mayor isn’t surewhat the cost is or who isresponsible for it but saidthe city never received anestimate.“We haven’t gotten abill; let’s put it that way.I’m hoping they paid forit all. When we talked tothem about it, they saidthey thought it was theirsto take care of. So we putthe sidewalk in for themand they put the railingup,” he said.

DELPHOS — More than30 stakeholders and volun-teers gathered at the DelphosCoon and Sportman’s ClubWednesday to hear aboutupcoming projects of theDelphos Stadium Club.President John Nominathanked all in attendance fortheir donations whether itwas monetary or sweat.“We could not do thiswithout all of you,” Nominasaid. “We are a bare-bonesorganization. We don’t havean entertainment budgetor an advertising budget.Everything we are given isput back into the projects atthe parks.”Last year, the club bidon and won seating for thevisitors’ side at the footballfield from the old Wizards’stadium in Fort Wayne, aswell as fixtures for a newvisitors’ locker room in theformer wastewater treatmentplant office.The football field wasalso moved north 10 feet andresodded.“Last year was a greatyear. We did more by far thanany other year we’ve beeninvolved,” Nomina said.Next on the club’s list isthe stadium itself. The firstproject will be to removeseating from the steel struc-ture on the east end andthe stadium. The steel andstadium will be cleaned,repaired, welded andcaulked and then paintedwith three coats — primer,base and top coats— and theseating put back in.The chain link fence infront will also be replaced.On the cement structure,both ends will be cleaned andpainted and structural issuesaddressed.“We are hoping to openthat tunnel so we can reroutetraffic from in front of thestands and the handicap areato the tunnel,” Nomina said.The tunnel has been closedon the west end of the stadi-um for decades.The handicap area on thestadium side will be elevatedso fans can see over the foot-ball team and the deckingreplaced.The club hopes these proj-ects will be completed byfootball season.“If we do have any moneyleft,” Nomina said, “we willfix the asphalt at each end bythe concession stands.”Nomina added that grantsare being sought for a side-walk project on the east sideof the park along the LittleLeague diamonds and one toinstall handicap seating onthe visitors’ side of the sta-dium.The club has done morethan $2 million in parks’improvements in the last 20years.Other members of theDelphos Stadium Clubinclude Gary Mack, DonNeumeier, “Zee” Beiningand Clara Hanf.

WASHINGTON — Shaking upyears of energy policy and his ownenvironmental backers, PresidentBarack Obama threw open a hugeswath of East Coast waters andother protected areas in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska to drillingWednesday, widening the political-ly explosive hunt for more home-grown oil and gas.Obama’s move allows drillingfrom Delaware to central Florida,plus the northern waters of Alaska,and exploration could begin 50miles off the coast of Virginia by2012. He also wants Congress tolift a drilling ban in the oil-richeastern Gulf of Mexico, 125 milesfrom Florida beaches.Still off limits: the entire Pacificseaboard. And in a nod to conserva-tion, Obama canceled oil explora-tion in Alaska’s Bristol Bay, deem-ing the area a national treasure.For this oil-dependent nation,the decision could start to reshapefar-reaching economic and nationalsecurity policies, affecting wherethe U.S. gets the fuel for its cars,heating and energy-gulping indus-try.For a president on a roll fol-lowing a big health care win,Wednesday’s drilling declarationwas both aggressive and pragmatic.Even with a push for cleaner energysources and efficient cars — andwith promises of protection for eco-systems and coastal tourism — thenation still needs more oil, Obama

DETROIT — A Michiganman authorities accuse of being a “heavy gunner” fora Midwest Christian militiadenies involvement in any plotto overthrow the government,his attorney says, and she plansto present evidence to provehe’s different from his fellowdefendants.Michael David Meeks, 40,of Manchester, faces a fed-eral detention hearing today inDetroit, where defense attorneyLisa Kirsch Satawa said evi-dence would be presented todistinguish Meeks from eightother suspected members of Hutaree charged with seditiousconspiracy, or plotting to levywar against the U.S.Laying out the Hutareehierarchy during a Wednesdayhearing, Assistant U.S.Attorney Ronald Waterstreettold a magistrate that accusedringleader David Brian Stonehad designated Meeks and46-year-old Thomas W. Piatekof Indiana “heavy gunners” incharge of “laying down heavyfire” in encounters with theenemy.Stone, Meeks, Piatek andsix other suspected Hutareemembers — self-proclaimed“Christian warriors” whotrained themselves in para-military techniques in prepa-ration for a battle against theAntichrist — were arrestedafter a series of weekend raidsacross the Midwest.Prosecutors say anundercover FBI agent whoinfiltrated the group and acooperating witness aidedan investigation into mem-bers’ alleged plans to make afalse 911 call, kill respondingpolice officers, then set off a bomb at the funeral to killmany more.An indictment said that afterthe attacks, the group plannedto retreat to “rally points” pro-tected by trip-wired explosivesfor a violent standoff with lawenforcement.“This is not Michael’sprofile. He is a damned goodMarine,” his father, EugeneMeeks, said in a telephoneinterview Wednesday. “ButMichael could have changedover the years.”Meeks’ family and oth-ers listened Wednesday asWaterstreet presented partsof the government’s case inhopes of persuading U.S.District Court MagistrateJudge Donald A. Scheer todeny bond, including detailsof a speech Stone apparentlyplanned to give during a rallyin Kentucky.“We are the American mili-tary. We outnumber them,”a speaker identified as Stonesays on an audio tape record-ed by the undercover agent.“People should not be afraid of the government. The govern-ment should fear the people.”The agent, who also hadbuilt explosives under Stone’sdirection, accompanied Stoneand others who intended toattend the Feb. 6 meeting of militias before their road tripwas stymied by rough winterweather, Waterstreet said. AsStone read his speech to pas-sengers in a van, the agentrecorded him, Waterstreetsaid.“Now it’s time to strike andtake our nation back so wewill be free of tyranny,” Stone,44, of Clayton, Mich., says onthe recording played in court.“The war will come whetherwe are ready or not.”Several defense attorneysobjected to the testimony pre-sented by Waterstreet, arguingthere was no opportunity tocross-examine the undercoveragent.“All they’re saying is myclient has an opinion and knowshow to use his mouth,” Stone’slawyer, William Swor, saidbefore Waterstreet played thetape. Swor later said Stone’sspeech was about defendingagainst foreigners and notmaking war against the U.S.government.Federal officials said theybegan monitoring the militialast summer and believed anattack was planned for April.Waterstreet said Hutaree wasplanning training that monthwhere they would kill peoplewho “came upon them.”Eva Grone, 91, of Delphos,died at 2:25 a.m. Thursdayat Vancrest Assisted Living.Arrangements are incompleteat Harter and Schier FuneralHome.The following individualsappeared Wednesday beforeJudge Charles Steele in VanWert County Common PleasCourt:An Ohio City man wasgiven an 18-month prison sen-tence but placed on communitycontrol for a period of five yearsand must spend time in thecounty jail along with electron-ic monitored house arrest uponrelease from the county jail.

said.“The answer is not drill-ing everywhere all the time,”Obama said in an event atAndrews Air Force Base.“But the answer is not, also,for us to ignore the fact thatwe are going to need vitalenergy sources to maintainour economic growth and oursecurity.”Inside politically con-scious Washington,Obama’s announcementwas viewed, too, as a playto win Republican supportfor a comprehensive climatechange bill. Obama needsGOP help to move legislationthrough the Senate that wouldlimit carbon emissions, a keypriority, and his decision ondrilling drew at least a bit of Republican applause.Republican George W.Bush pushed for years toexpand offshore drilling. Heand Congress lifted bans onsome drilling in 2008, whengasoline prices hit recordlevels. But Obama’s plan isnarrower than Bush’s, whichalso would have opened upoil and gas leasing areas off California and in the NorthAtlantic.Obama got a predict-able pummeling Wednesdayfrom environmentalists, whosarcastically compared himto Sarah Palin, the formervice presidential candidatewhose oil-promoting speechat the Republican NationalConvention in 2008 famouslydrew chants of “Drill, Baby,Drill!”Any big changes to envi-ronmental policy — particu-larly oil drilling — tend totouch off the bitter debatethat Obama says he wants thecountry to end.His support for explorato-ry drilling in the Chukchi andBeaufort seas north of Alaska,for example, drew outragefrom the Center for BiologicalDiversity as a threat to polarbears. “Short of sendingSarah Palin back to Alaska topersonally club polar bears todeath, the Obama administra-tion could not have come upwith a more efficient extinc-tion plan for the polar bear,”said Brendan Cummings, thecenter’s senior counsel.More broadly, the conser-vation group Oceana declaredObama was “unleashinga wholesale assault on theoceans.”

COLUMBUS (AP) —Ohio’s attorney general saysthe low number of death sen-tences being handed downin the state is a trend that’slikely here to stay.Attorney General RichardCordray says it appears judg-es, juries and prosecutors areincreasingly comfortable withthe growing use of life with-out the possibility of parole.Cordray also notes whathe calls the odd conjunctionof fewer death sentences butincreasing executions, withabout one per month current-ly being carried out.The attorney general’sannual report on capital pun-ishment released Thursdaynotes one death sentence wasimposed in Ohio last year,with 159 men and one womanon death row.Ohio judges have sen-tenced two men to death sofar this year. The next execu-tion is scheduled for April20.
