Kindle shares retirement info
BY STACY TAFFThe Delphos Heraldstaff@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS—More than 20 interestedcitizens gathered in the meeting roomat the Delphos Public Library Mondayevening to listen to a representative fromthe Lima office of the Social SecurityAdministration as he distributed generalinformation about retirement benefits.David Kindle, an operations super-visor at the Lima office, touched onMedicare eligibility as well as survivorand spousal benefits in his hour-longpresentation.“The earliest you can apply for retire-ment benefits is age 62,” Kindle said.“But you won’t get the full benefitsyou’d get if you waited until full retire-ment age, which is between ages 65 and67, depending on what year you wereborn. If you wait until age 70, you getdelayed retirement benefits as well. Theearlier the benefits start, the greater thereduction.”Once a retired person starts receivingretirement or disability benefits, theirfamily members are also eligible for pay-ments. For instance, spouses can receivebenefits from their husband or wife’sretirement if they are 62 or older or car-ing for a child 16 or under (or disabledadult child). For children to receive ben-efits, they must be unmarried and young-er than 18, or if they are 18-19, they mustbe a full-time student. Children can alsoreceive benefits at older than 18 if theyare disabled but the disability must havestarted before age 22.Kindle says if you’ve had a divorce,your ex-spouse may be eligible for a per-centage of your retirement benefits.“If you are single and you were mar-ried to your ex for at least 10 years, theymay be entitled to a piece of your retire-ment benefits, up to a maximum of 50percent,” he said. “If you are divorcedand something happens to you, yourspouse may still be eligible. Also, re-marriage after the age of 60, in any case,doesn’t affect the widow(er) benefits.”If you have a disability of some kind,you can apply for benefits at age 62 butmust have recent work to qualify.
“You have to have worked five outof the last 10 years and 24 monthsafter you start receiving your dis-ability benefits, you are eligible forMedicare,” Kindle said. “We only dealwith Medicare Part A and Part B. PartA covers hospital insurance and coversmost inpatient and hospital expenses.Part B is outpatient care and it covers80 percent of doctor bills and otheroutpatient expenses after first $155in approved charges. Part C, which isHMO’s, PPO’s and others as well asPart D, which is drug plans are cov-ered through private companies, notus. But Social Security provides extrahelp for those who need Part D andhave limited income and resources.”

Storms ‘rained bullets’ on area fields
BY MICHAEL FORDThe Delphos Heraldmford@delphosherald.com
Though the Tri-countywas spared the severe weath-er that made the Toledo arealook like a war zone, heavyrainfall throughout the regionimpacted some farmers asthough the droplets were bul-lets.Despite following on theheels of hot, dry weather,many in the agriculture com-munity were still behind inplanting when the stormsrolled through, accord-ing to Van Wert OSUExtension Educator AndyKleinschmidt.“We still have some farm-ers trying to get soybeansplanted and even a few cornfields to get planted, as well.The recent rain hasn’t beenvery welcome for guys whoare trying to wrap up get-ting things planted,” he said.“Planting has been a chal-lenge — we started off verygood in early and mid April.Things were looking verygood and a lot of guys got outearly to get a lot of the cornplanted. Some even finishedup getting corn and soybeansplanted but the weather turnedwet and guys were shut out of their fields from mid-April toabout May 9 or 10. They gotin a couple days of work andit turned wet again and theywere shut out until the endof May and now the first partof June.So, it has been a challengeto get things in the groundand we now have corn that iswater-logged and starting toturn yellow. These aren’t thekind of conditions we want tosee starting out the season.”His colleague in PutnamCounty said farmers in hiscounty aren’t faring muchdifferently.“In the center of the coun-ty, we got about 1.5 inches of rain this weekend and we hadsome rain but nothing likethey had up in Wood County.That brings our rainfall overthe last 5 weeks to 9 inchesafter the 7 we had in May.So, we’re at more than doublewhat is normal and we’re stilldelayed in planting. All of this has caused some fieldsto go backward; they don’tlook as good today as theydid a week ago because of too much standing water,”Educator Glen Arnold said.He is hoping to avoid anyfurther rainfall this week,though there is a 50 percentchance of it for Wednesday.“We would really like tonot get any rain this weekand have about 7-10 days forfarmers to work. Then, afterthat, we’ll probably needanother rain,” he said.
Fickle oil slick scattersitself across Gulf 
PANAMA CITY BEACH,Fla. (AP) — In sensitivemarshes on the Louisianacoast, oil thick as pancakebatter suffocates grasses andtraps pelicans. Blobs of tarthe size of dimes or dinnerplates dot the white sandsof Alabama and the FloridaPanhandle. Little seems amissin Mississippi except a short-age of tourists, but an oilysheen glides atop the sea westof Tampa.The oil spill plaguingthe states along the Gulf of Mexico isn’t one slick — it’smany.“We’re no longer deal-ing with a large, monolithicspill,” Coast Guard Adm.Thad Allen said Monday ata White House news confer-ence. “We’re dealing with anaggregation of hundreds orthousands of patches of oilthat are going a lot of differ-ent directions.”Officials reported that acontainment cap over the BPgusher at the bottom of theGulf was sucking up one-third to three-quarters of theoil — but also noted that its

effects could linger foryears.And as the oil patchesflirt with the coastline, slath-ering some spots and leavingothers alone, residents whodepend on tourism and fish-ing are wondering in the hereand now how to head off thedamage or salvage a seasonthat’s nearing its peak.At the Salty Dog Surf Shopin Panama City Beach, nearthe eastern end of the spillarea, manager Glen Thaxtonhawked T-shirts, flip-flopsand sunglasses with usualbriskness Monday, even asofficials there warned oilcould appear on the sandwithin 72 hours.“It could come to ascreeching halt real quick,”Thaxton said. “So we’vebeen calling vendors and tell-ing them don’t ship anythingelse until further notice.”In Mississippi, Gov. HaleyBarbour over the weekendangrily blasted news cover-age that he said was scaringaway tourists at the start of the busy summer season bymaking it seem as if “thewhole coast from Florida toTexas is ankle-deep in oil.”Mississippi, he insistedon “Fox News Sunday,” wasclean.That sounded about rightto Darlene Kimball, whoruns Kimball Seafood on thedocks at Pass Christian.“Mississippi watersare open, and we’re catch-ing shrimp,” Kimball said.Still, her business is hurt-ing because of a perceptionthat Gulf seafood isn’t safe,she said, and because manyshrimpers have signed up tohelp corral the spill else-where.The random, scatterednature of the oil was evi-dent Monday during a tripacross the state line betweenAlabama and Florida.On the Alabama side,clumps of seaweed ladenwith oil littered beaches formiles. Huge orange globsstained the sand in places.But at Perdido Key, onthe Florida side, the sandwas white and virtuallycrude-free. Members of afive-person crew had to lookfor small dots of oil to pickup, stooping over every fewyards for another piece.“It’s beautiful here today,”said Josiah Holmes, of Gulf Shores, Ala. He and his wife,Lydia, had driven across thestate line because the beachwas such a mess at home.For some who are plan-ning vacations in the regionbut live elsewhere, the spill’sfickle nature is causing con-fusion.Adam Warriner, a cus-tomer service agent withCalifornia-based CSA Travelprotection, said the companyis getting a lot of calls fromvacationers worried the oilwill disrupt their trips —even if they’re headed toSouth Carolina, nowherenear the spill area.“As of now we haven’tincluded oil into any of ourcoverage language, andthat’s not something thatI’ve heard is happening,” hesaid.That kind of mispercep-tion worries residents andofficials in areas that aren’tbeing hit hard by the oil —and even those in some thatare.“The daily images of theoil is obviously having animpact,” said Gov. BobbyJindal of Louisiana, the stateclosest to the leak and theone where the oil is hav-ing its most insidious effectson wildlife. “It’s having aheavy, real, very negativeimpact on our economy.”Some of the most endur-ing images are of pelicansand other wildlife drenchedin oil.As the sun rose todayon Barataria Bay, La., justwest of the mouth of theMississippi River, marshislands teemed with oilybrown pelicans and crude-stained white ibis. The birdsinadvertantly used their oiledbeaks like paint brushes,dabbing at their wings, asthe brown goo bled into theirfeathers. Some struggled tofly, fluttered and fell, whileothers just sat and tried toclean themselves, sqwawk-ing and flapping their wings.Dolphins bobbed up anddown through the oily sheennearby.Fishing guide DaveMarino looked out over thewater in disbelief and dis-gust. The 41 year old fire-fighter has been fishing thesewaters for 20 years.“I’m an optimistic guy,so hopefully it doesn’t justoverwhelm the entire sys-tem,” he said. “But if it con-tinues to go on and the oilkeeps coming in, eventuallythe balance is going to tip.Then what happens? Is it allover?”The Barataria estuary,one of the hardest-hit areas,has been busy with shrimpboats skimming up oil andofficials in boats and heli-copters patrolling the islandsand bays to assess the stateof wildlife and the move-ment of oil.President Barack Obamasought to reassure Americansby saying that “we will getthrough this crisis” but that itwould take dedication.Later, he said he’s beentalking closely with Gulf Coast fishermen and variousexperts on BP’s catastrophicoil spill and not for loftyacademic reasons.“I talk to these folksbecause they potentiallyhave the best answers — soI know whose ass to kick,”the president said.
High temperature Mondayin Delphos was 71 degrees,low was 54. High a year agotoday was 82, low was 66.Record high for today is 96,set in 1933. Record low is 42,set in 1913.

LIMA, Peru — DutchmanJoran van der Sloot, long theprime suspect in the 2005 dis-appearance of a U.S. teen inAruba, has confessed to kill-ing a young Peruvian womanin his Lima hotel room, apolice spokesman said.Peru’s chief police spokes-man, Col. Abel Gamarra, toldThe Associated Press thatVan der Sloot admitted underpolice questioning Mondaythat he killed 21-year-oldStephany Flores on May 30.The broadcaster AmericaTelevision reported that Vander Sloot killed Flores in arage after learning she hadlooked up information abouthis past on his laptop. It saidit had access to details of theconfession but did not cite itssource.Gamarra would not pro-vide details of the confes-sion. Nor would the chief of Peru’s criminal police, Gen.Cesar Guardia, when the APreached him by telephone.Guardia said only policedirector Gen. Miguel Hidalgocould authorize the informa-tion to be divulged. Hidalgo’scell phone rang unanswered.Asked about the Van derSloot confession, a brotherof the victim, Enrique Flores,told the AP “we are not goingto make any comment. This isin the hands of the police, of the justice system.”Van der Sloot’s confessioncame on his third full day inPeruvian police custody, onthe eve of a planned trip to thehotel in which he was to par-ticipate in a reconstruction of the events leading to Flores’slaying, Gamarra said.Flores, a business student,was found beaten to death, herneck broken, in the 22-year-old Dutchman’s hotel room.Police said the two met play-ing poker at a casino.Video from hotel secu-rity cameras shows the twoentering Van der Sloot’shotel room together at 5 a.m.Saturday and Van der Slootleaving alone four hours laterwith his bags. Police sayVan der Sloot also left thehotel briefly at 8:10 a.m. andreturned with two cups of coffee and bread purchasedacross the street at a super-market.Gamarra said the casewould now be turned over toprosecutors to present formalcharges and Van der Slootwill be assigned to a prisonwhile he awaits trial. Murderconvictions carry a maximumof 35 years in prison in Peruand it was not immediatelyclear if a confession couldlead to a reduced sentence.Van der Sloot remains theprime suspect in the 2005disappearance of Alabamateen Natalee Holloway, then18, on the Caribbean resortisland of Aruba while she wascelebrating her high schoolgraduation.He was arrested twicein the case — and gave anumber of conflicting confes-sions, some in TV interviews— but was freed for lack of evidence.Holloway’s father toldABC’s “Good MorningAmerica” today that Van derSloot should tell all he knowsabout the disappearance of his daughter.“He confessed to this one... I would like for him totell everyone what happened”in the earlier case, DaveHolloway said. “Hopefullythis is his last victim.”The 6-foot-3-tall Vander Sloot had been held atPeruvian criminal policeheadquarters since arrivingSaturday in a police convoy

CHICAGO — MarvinIsley, the bass player whohelped give R&B powerhousethe Isley Brothers their dis-tinctive sound, has died at aChicago hospital. He was 56.Isley died Sunday morn-ing at an inpatient hospiceat Weiss Memorial Hospital,according to hospital spokes-woman Catherine Gianaro.She could not confirm a causeof death.Isley stopped performingin 1996 after suffering com-plications from diabetes thatincluded a stroke, high bloodpressure, the loss of both legsand use of his left hand.He joined his brothers’band in 1973. By that time,the Isley Brothers had estab-lished themselves with hitslike 1959’s “Shout,” whichsold more than 1 millionrecords. Isley splintered off to form Isley-Jasper-Isley inthe 1980s and returned to theIsley Brothers in the 1990s.The group was inducted intothe Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992, and their careerhas spanned six decades.At one point there were fiveIsley brothers in the group,including Marvin. Today,only Ronald Isley is touringfull time after a three-yearstint in federal prison for taxevasion.

GENEVA (AP) —Switzerland’s efforts to calm abanking furor hit a major set-back today as nationalist andleft-wing lawmakers blockeda treaty with the United Statesthat would have allowed UBSto hand over thousands morefiles on its American clients toU.S. tax authorities.The Swiss government andWashington had painstakinglycrafted the treaty last August toresolve a long-standing disputeover the bank’s alleged role inaiding tax evasion but 104lawmakers in Switzerland’slower house voted against thedeal today, compared to 76in favor. Sixteen lawmakersabstained.The government had urgedlawmakers to approve the dealto avert harm to the Swisseconomy, which is heavilydependent on the country’sbanking industry.The deal is crucial to UBS— the country’s largest bank— which has faced intensepressure from U.S. authoritiessince 2007.Last year the bank agreedto turn over hundreds of clientfiles and pay a $780 millionpenalty in return for a deferredprosecution agreement. ButWashington has signaled thatunless UBS reveals a fur-ther 4,450 American namesdemanded in the U.S.-Swissagreement, it may face a crip-pling civil investigation just asthe bank is recovering from thesubprime crisis and seeking torebuild its U.S. business.The deal was blockedtoday by lawmakers fromSwitzerland’s two biggest par-ties, the People’s Party and theSocial Democrats.The Social Democrats hadtied their consent to a bind-ing government commitmentto tax bankers’ bonuses. ThePeople’s Party wanted parlia-ment to vote against such atax before dealing with theU.S. tax treaty. Both parties’demands were rejected by thegovernment.The bill will now be passedback to the upper house forfurther debate and could bevoted on again by the lowerhouse later this month. Butlawmakers also voted to putany eventual compromise to apopular referendum, making afurther delay likely.Shares in UBS AG fell2.1 percent after the vote to14.41 Swiss francs ($12.41),as the bank now risks beingdrawn into costly civil litiga-tion by U.S. authorities overthe 4,450 suspected Americantax cheats.

COLUMBUS — In a hotand stuffy closet-sized roomin the bowels of Fry Hallon the Ohio State Universitycampus, a small army of do-gooders sifts though someoneelse’s junk.Optometry students gath-er there at least weekly tosort through tubs, boxes andcrates of thousands of castoff eyeglasses. They rip throughthem quickly, tossing asidewhat is broken beyond repairand saving what is good.Even in the Coke-bottle-thickglasses and the pearl-studdedhorn rims that probably noone has worn since JimmyCarter was president, the stu-dents see treasures.For a girl in Guatemalawho hasn’t seen her parentsclearly or been able to readthe print in a book since shewas born, those old glassesare as valuable as if they weremade of gold.“When we take the glassesto some other place, someSouth American country orsome desolate land, and akid puts them on and cansuddenly see what’s aroundthem, it’s like we’ve justhanded them a million dol-lars,” Patrick Milleson said.“It’s just such a thrill to seetheir faces.”Milleson, a 26-year-oldstudent from Ironton in south-ern Ohio, is president of theOSU organization StudentsVolunteering OptometricServices to Humanity.In Ohio, many of theglasses people drop intoLions Club boxes that arescattered around stores andoffices eventually end upin the cramped room on10th Avenue. Lions ClubsInternational is the world’slargest service club organiza-tion, and saving and givingsight is its largest mission.“We have become sucha rich society that we takefor granted that anyonewho needs glasses can getthem,” said Mallory Kuchem,a 23-year-old student fromPowell who will join 25other OSU optometry stu-dents on the annual missiontrip in September, this oneto Guatemala. “The glasseswe hand out change people’slives.”The club, which has 95members, takes in about100,000 pairs each year. Thestudents clean the glasses,check the prescriptions andbag and label them for thetrip. About 30 percent of whatis collected is usable.The rest — the brokenframes; the delicate, rimlessones; and glasses with pre-scriptions that are too odd orout of whack — are melteddown.The money the club getsfrom that scrap goes towardits $36,000 annual budget.The budget is used to pay foreye exams and new glassesfor the needy at clinics inColumbus; help fund the mis-sion trip; help pay for spe-cially made glasses for peoplewho are in danger of losingall eyesight; and buy much-coveted reading glasses andsunglasses.The students and the threeOSU eye doctors will takenearly 4,000 pairs of glassesand 2,000 pairs of sunglasseson the mission this year. Theyalso will take medicines totreat eye infections and minorillnesses.And they will take a wholebunch of hats. Ball caps, sunhats, visors. It seems glassesaren’t the only thing peopledrop into those Lions Clubdonation boxes.The hats help people in thecountries visited on the mis-sion trips to protect their eyesfrom the harsh sun.Some other things thestudents find in Lions Clubboxes are less useful.“The Band-Aids are thegrossest,” Kuchem said. “Ithink we find them becausepeople used them to holdtheir frames together, but theycreep me out anyway.”Sometimes, too, they findnotes.“It’ll be taped to the side of the glasses and say somethinglike, ’These were my mom’s.She just died,”’ said DaveJohnson, a 29-year-old stu-dent from Portsmouth. “Welike the notes. It reminds usthat these glasses have a storyand that, when we take them,we’re only adding to it.”
