Members of Allen and Van Wert county 4-H programs check in for preliminary judg-ing Tuesday at Jefferson High School. For the first time, the two counties combined judg-ing leading up to exhibitions at this summer’s fairs.
Collaboration brings brightside to 4-H fiscal challenges
BY MICHAEL FORDThe Delphos Herald
DELPHOS — Every year,4-H members take projects totheir respective county fair.These include everythingfrom livestock to woodwork,sewing and even welding.Though each county holds judging prior to the fair,something new took placeTuesday at Jefferson HighSchool.Mark Light oversees theprogram in Allen County onbehalf of the OSU Extension.His colleague in Van Wert isHeather Gottke and for thefirst time in Ohio, two coun-ties combined their judgingefforts.“This is something wedo every year but it’s newto combine them. BecauseDelphos is central, we endedup here. Allen County has 60clubs and Van Wert has 25.Between the two, we haveabout 400-450 kids witharound 600 or so projects;we have 32 judges judgingabout 20 projects each,”Light said.Gottke was glad to see thepositive effect collaborationhas on the kids.“I was walking down thehall earlier and heard an AllenCounty Junior Fair Boardmember talking with a kidfrom the Van Wert CountyJunior Fair Board; ‘How doyou do this?’ ‘How do you dothat?’ and they were compar-ing how the fairs run and theywere really engaged with oneanother,” she said.Because Light is theonly OSU Extension staff member in Allen County,it was necessary for Allento do something differentfrom years past when itconducted its own prelimi-nary judging. Through thecollaboration, there areseveral benefits.“By working together, weare able to have more quali-fied judges. For example, if I only had five kids withwelding projects, they wouldnormally end up in miscella-neous judging and the judgemay not know welding,” hesaid. “But if Van Wert has afew welding projects, thereare enough of them togetherto get a qualified judge.”Each year, the winner of each fair’s category progress-es to the state fair. Light saidby rubbing shoulders with4-H members from anothercounty, those who will latermove to state competition getan early feel for the experi-ence.He also added that col-laboration saves moneybecause he has always hadto hire judges in the past.This year, volunteers fromVan Wert County can judgeAllen County projects andvise versa.
Ag leader describes corn development
BY MICHAEL FORDThe Delphos Heraldmford@delpho-sherald.com
Area farmers hope tohave a better year for cornthan last year when heavylate rainfall caused plants tobe too wet. Most farmershad to artificially dry theircorn with propane, the costof which diminished profits.For this year’s crop, one areaagriculture leader says cornis in its most critical stage.“This is one of the morecritical time periods forcorn’s growth cycle, so thenext few weeks are criticalfor rainfall; corn is in itsreproductive stage right nowwhere it’s pollinating andgrowing tassels,” said VanWert Ohio State UniversityExtension Educator AndyKleinschmidt.He explains that this stagein corn development revolvesaround kernel creation.“Right now, the kernels arebeing fertilized so they candevelop into full kernels. Oncethe fertilization process is com-plete, the corn will start trans-forming those small fertilizedkernels into mature corn ker-nels. Corn will still be depen-dent on the weather, even atthat stage and beyond — eveninto September,” he said.If the weather cooper-ates in early fall, farmersmay get to make back someof last year’s extra propaneexpense.“Once the grain is mature,we want it to dry down so wedon’t have to artificially dryit like we did last year. Wewant warm, dry conditions atthat point with some windydays to help dry it downso we don’t have to spendmoney on propane like wedid last Fall,” Kleinschmidtsaid. “We also don’t want anearly frost, but we definitelywant a dry fall.”

Lake algae no threatto Delphos, canal
BY MICHAEL FORDThe Delphos Heraldmford@delphosherald.com
Senator Sherrod Brown andUnited States Department of Agriculture chief Tom Vilsackannounced Tuesday that $1million will be allocated toAuglaize and Mercer countiesto address the growth of algaein Grand Lake Saint Marys.The money will be funneledthrough the USDA NaturalResources ConservationService.An extreme amount of growth has appeared overthe last two weeks, haltingall recreational activity on thelake. Many residents of com-munities along the Miami-ErieCanal may be concerned abouttoxins making their way northbut one expert says there isnothing to worry about it.“We draw water out of Grand Lake St. Marys to keepwater in the canal and we’remonitoring the algae every dayto see how far north it movesand we aren’t seeing any morethan a minimal amount flow-ing north through St. Marys,”Canal Operations Managerwith the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Water Steve Dorsten said.“Every day, we run throughthe three-mile feeder to theaquaduct and north of SaintMarys to the 40-mile pondand the farther we go down-stream, the less algae we see.We’re not seeing anythingof significance north of St.Mary’s — either because itis simply diluted or becauseof the canal’s filters such asduckweed and vegetation.”Grand Lake St. Maryshas developed harmful algaeconnected to farming opera-tions’ potential to deliver sedi-ment and nutrients to the lake.Officials report that applyingconservation measures such asfilter strips, manure manage-ment and cover crops, sedi-ment and nutrients will stay onland. Reducing nutrients enter-ing the lake should decreasethe amount of algae growth.The algae in questionhas been determined to bea liver toxin by the OhioEnvironmental ProtectionAgency. Recent water testsconducted by the Ohio EPArevealed the highest levelsof microcystin recorded thissummer.
“ ... We’re not see-ing anything of significance northof St. Mary’s —either because itis simply dilutedor because of thecanal’s filterssuch as duckweedand vegetation.”

NEW ORLEANS — Thefederal government’s spillchief said a relief tunnelshould finally reach BP’sbroken Gulf of Mexico wellby the weekend, meaning thethree-month-old gusher couldbe snuffed for good withintwo weeks.After several days of con-cern about the well’s stabilityand the leaky cap keeping theoil mostly bottled up, retiredCoast Guard Adm. ThadAllen said Tuesday that engi-neers concluded the risk of abigger blowout was minimaland were getting closer topumping mud into the col-umn to permanently seal it.“We continue to be pleasedwith the progress,” Allen saidin Washington, giving thego-ahead to keep the wellcap shut for at least 24 morehours and possibly longer.Meanwhile, a publishedreport said BP’s belea-guered CEO, Tony Hayward,planned to step down after aseries of PR blunders, includ-ing yacht racing during thespill and saying he wantedhis life back. The Timesnewspaper in London, quot-ing company sources it didnot identify, said today thatHayward was likely to go byearly September.But BP spokeswomanSheila Williams said, “Tonyis leading the company in astrong and robust way and hasthe support of the board.”Shares of British-based BPPLC, which have lost about40 percent since the disasterbegan in April, were up morethan 3 percent today on theLondon Stock Exchange afterthe company announced a $7billion asset sale to Houston-based Apache Corp. to helppay for the catastrophe.Just weeks after promisingto raise $10 billion by sellingpieces of its business, BP saidTuesday that Apache willbuy properties in the U.S.,Canada and Egypt. BP says ithas spent nearly $4 billion onthe spill so far and is on thehook for a $20 billion fundfor damaged Gulf residentsand businesses.On the Gulf, BP vice pres-ident Kent Wells said crewshope to drill sideways intothe blown-out well and inter-cept it at the end of July. Therelief well is necessary toplug the well permanently.After it’s done, crewswill begin the kill procedure,pumping mud and cement intothe hole a mile underwater toseal it, which BP said couldtake anywhere from five daysto a couple of weeks.“Everything’s lookinggood,” Well said. “The relief well is exactly where wewant it. It’s pointed in theright direction, and so we’refeeling good about that.”Engineers are also con-sidering shooting drillingmud down through the capto increase the chances thatthe attempt to kill the wellsucceeds.News that a solution isnear cheered Jeff Hunt, whoscans the waves daily for tell-tale tar balls in PensacolaBeach, Fla.“It makes me very happy,after nearly three months,that they finally have gottento a pinnacle point of closingit,” said the co-owner of ahair salon. “We need to plugthe thing.”BP wants to leave the capon in the meantime. At onepoint, Allen wanted instead torelieve the pressure by open-ing up the cap and siphoningoil up to ships on the surface,but he has relented in the pastfew days. Opening the capwould have required allowingmillions of gallons oil to gushinto the sea again for a fewdays while the plumbing washooked up.

WASHINGTON — SenateDemocrats broke through astubborn Republican filibusterTuesday and pressed to restart jobless benefits for 2 1/2 mil-lion Americans still unable tofind work in the frail nation-al economic recovery. TheDemocrats were victorious bythe single vote of a new senatorsworn in only moments earlier.Senators voted 60-40 tomove ahead on the bill, clear-ing the way for a final vote inthe chamber today.The recovery from thenation’s long and deep reces-sion has produced relativelyfew new jobs so far, and mil-lions of people’s unemploy-ment benefits began running outseven weeks ago as Congressbogged down in an impasseover whether the $34 billioncost of a fresh extension of benefits should be paid for withbudget cuts or be added to the$13 trillion national debt.Democrats emphasized theplight of the unemployed andargued that putting money inthe pockets of jobless fami-lies would also boost economicrevival.But the numbers are farsmaller than last year’s $862billion stimulus legislation.Republicans have blockedDemocratic add-ons, such asaid to state governments.The economy has added882,000 jobs so far this year— but many of those were onlytemporary positions as the fed-eral government geared up toconduct the U.S. Census.Many Republicans havevoted in the past for deficit-financed benefits extension —including twice under the mostrecent Bush administration. Butwith the deficit well in excessof $1 trillion, they now say itshould be paid for with cutselsewhere in the $3.7 trillionfederal budget.After initially feeling politi-cal heat this winter when alone GOP senator, Jim Bunningof Kentucky, briefly blocked abenefits extension in February,the GOP has grown increas-ingly comfortable opposing thelegislation.Democrats said that in toughtimes the government invari-ably lengthens the eligibilityperiod for jobless benefits asmore and more people chasefewer jobs. Such efforts havebeen deficit-financed — whichpolicymakers and economistssay has a stimulative effect onthe economy.

But her brief time in anisolation cell that has housedother celebrities such as ParisHilton and Michelle Rodriguezis just one element of a sentencethat is designed to punish andrehabilitate the star.Once Lohan is releasedin early August, she will berequired to report to probationofficials within a day. She hasalso been ordered to spend threemonths at an inpatient rehab.That portion of her sentencewon’t be trimmed like her jailstint by overcrowding and cred-its for good behavior.
