Council considerstax levy renewal
BY GREG SCHERGERStaff writer
DELPHOS — A resolu-tion declaring an intentionto place a 4.05-mill renewaltax levy on the Novembergeneral ballot affecting prop-erty owners within Delphosreceived considerable atten-tion and endorsement fromcouncil and the administrationat Monday’s meeting.City Council PresidentBob Ulm emphasized that thetax was “not new, has beenin place in excess of 20 yearsand is extremely crucial forthe city budget and maintain-ing current service levels of several departments.”If passed, the renewalwould be in effect from Jan.1, 2012, through Dec. 31,2016. The 4.05-mill levy cur-rently provides the city withapproximately $208,000 tothe General Fund annually.Berquist and Jettinghoff notedsome cuts will be needed if the long-standing tax is notrenewed.The tax equates to 40.5cents for each $100 of prop-erty valuation. Passage of theresolution to establish the taxlevy on the November bal-lot is anticipated at a futuremeeting.Council approved using citystreets for the second annual5K Relay for Life Run andMemorial Day parade. Therun will take place on June18. With a start time of 9 a.m.,runners will follow a designat-ed route from Jefferson SeniorHigh School east on NorthStreet, south on Canal Street,east on Seventh Street to ScottStreet north to Eighth Streetthen west to Main Street northto and around Stadium Parkbefore completing at the highschool.Kendra Wieging spokeon behalf of the relay, citing120 participants in last year’sevent.On behalf of the DelphosVeterans Council, Rick Schuckreceived approval for theannual Memorial Day Parade.The parade will step off fromthe Second Street SafetyService building at 10:45 a.m.on May 30 and proceed toMain Street, then north to theVeterans Memorial Park atFifth and Main for a programscheduled for 11 a.m.Council took no definitiveaction to four other pieces of legislation presented on firstor second reading.Council reviewed an ordi-nance to enter into contractwith the successful bidderfor a sanitary sewer replace-ment in the Menke MeadowsAddition. Funded in major-ity by a $41,600 grant fromthe Ohio Public WorksCommission, the total projectcost is estimated at $52,000.City Safety Service DirectorGreg Berquist commentedthat the project would likelybegin after school is out forthe year.Council also read an ordi-nance to contract with thesuccessful bidder for an ErieStreet sewer project, utiliz-ing $73,000 provided byCommunity DevelopmentBlock Grant funds of the esti-mated $80,000 project. Bidrequests for this project havenot yet been established orissued.Council also read an ordi-nance for the city to assumeownership and maintenanceof a sewer along Elida Roadin an area now under devel-opment by Delphos SeniorHousing, LLC. CouncilmanKevin Osting inquired as tothe progress that the city hasmade in checking the con-dition of the line that wasinstalled outside the city limitsin the late 1980s. Berquistadvised that 400 feet of theline has been camera inspect-ed and the line is in good con-dition and is of larger capacitythan previously anticipated.An ordinance authorizingCity Auditor Tom Jettinghoff to make various fund transferswithin city accounts to com-ply with the Ohio Auditor’sOffice was also heard on sec-ond reading.

The Kiwanis Club and theDelphos Police Departmentare working together to com-bat playground equipmentvandalism.Over the past few years,the Kiwanis Club has putforth much effort to updateplayground equipment in cityparks.“It seems that with warm-er weather comes the annualproblem of individuals van-dalizing this equipment,”Delphos Police Chief KyleFittro said. “Approximatelyone month ago, there was agreat deal of graffiti spray-painted on the equipment atWaterworks Park.”The Kiwanis Club hasagreed to pay up to $250for information leading to thearrest and prosecution of indi-viduals responsible for thisvandalism.“People should report allsuspicious activity,” Chief Fittro said. “I can’t tell youhow many times I have heardsomeone say ‘I thought it wasstrange that this was occur-ring but I never called thepolice.’ Many crimes havebeen solved when peoplecalled in ‘insignificant’ activ-ity.”The reward is ongoing andapplies to past, present orfuture vandalism; it is notfor one particular incidentonly.

Group hopes historical Fort Jenningsbook complete by Christmas
BY STACY TAFFstaff@delphosherald.com
FORT JENNINGS — Thiscommunity’s 2012 bicenten-nial will mark 200 years sincethe fort named for ColonelJennings was founded duringthe War of 1812. In honorof the event, a committeewas formed to put together abicentennial book filled withthe history of Fort Jennings.“I put together a bookbefore about histories andfamilies of Fort Jennings andnow that 2012 is coming up,Helen Kaverman approachedme and said ‘why don’t youput together another historybook about the bicentenni-al?’ and I said ‘well, I don’twrite’,” Deb Birkemeier said.“So we found some peopleto help out and now we haveseven writers that are work-ing on putting together thehistory. We’ve been able togather the statistics and thingsbut the history itself has to bewritten down. We also have13 people on the committeewho are gathering maps andphotographs from the com-munity for the book.”“We have about 800 pic-tures now,” Judy Wiegingadded. “There probablywon’t be room, so probablyonly about 200 will be usedbut we did get duplicates of things. This book has gen-erated a lot of communityinterest because we’ve beenbugging them for pictures.”The book will be publishedby MT Publishing and will bearound 300 pages long. Thecommittee plans to do pre-sale and give any profit madeto the park. Hardback will be$45, paperback $35.“We’re thinking we’llprint about 500 copies butyou never know,” Wiegingsaid. “We hope there willbe that much interest. Sincewe’re doing presale, it will beeasy to know how many we’llhave to have printed.”The committee hopes tohave the book finished byChristmas at the earliest.“We’re hoping forChristmas, or maybe the begin-ning of next year,” Birkemeiersaid. “Janet Hoersten has beenworking on getting us somesponsors and that’s helped andwe still have some pictureswe’d like to find.”Wieging believes the pic-tures are out there; it’s justfinding the right person.“We’re looking for pic-tures of the old dump thatused to be where the parkis now,” Wieging said. “Itwould be nice to show whatthat area once was and howbeautiful it’s become. We’dalso like some of the tile milland the elevator fire. There’sso much history and to see allof the businesses that havebeen in Fort Jennings overthe years is unreal.”The last piece of FortJennings history printed wasin 1976, so the committeefeels it’s time to update.“The younger generationdoesn’t have copies of theone that was printed in ’76,”Wieging said. “It’s importantfor them to learn about thehistory.”
“The youngergeneration doesn’thave copies of the that one wasprinted in ’76. It’simportant forthem to learnabout the history.”

Phone call by Kuwaiticourier led to bin Laden
By ADAM GOLDMANand MATT APUZZOThe Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Whenone of Osama bin Laden’smost trusted aides pickedup the phone last year, heunknowingly led U.S. pursu-ers to the doorstep of his boss,the world’s most wanted ter-rorist.That monitored phone call,recounted Monday by a U.S.official, ended a years-longsearch for bin Laden’s per-sonal courier, the key breakin a worldwide manhunt. Thecourier, in turn, led U.S. intel-ligence to a walled compoundin northeast Pakistan, where ateam of Navy SEALs shot binLaden to death.The violent final minuteswere the culmination of yearsof intelligence work. Insidethe CIA team hunting binLaden, it always was clearthat bin Laden’s vulnerabilitywas his couriers. He was toosmart to let al-Qaida foot sol-diers, or even his senior com-manders, know his hideout.But if he wanted to get hismessages out, somebody hadto carry them, someone binLaden trusted with his life.Shortly after the Sept. 11,2001, terrorist attacks, detain-ees in the CIA’s secret prisonnetwork told interrogatorsabout an important courierwith the nom de guerre AbuAhmed al-Kuwaiti who wasclose to bin Laden. Afterthe CIA captured al-Qaida’sNo. 3 leader, Khalid SheikhMohammed, he confirmedknowing al-Kuwaiti butdenied he had anything to dowith al-Qaida.Then in 2004, top al-Qaidaoperative Hassan Ghul wascaptured in Iraq. Ghul toldthe CIA that al-Kuwaiti wasa courier, someone crucial tothe terrorist organization. Inparticular, Ghul said, the cou-rier was close to Faraj al-Libi,who replaced Mohammed asal-Qaida’s operational com-mander. It was a key breakin the hunt for bin Laden’spersonal courier.“Hassan Ghul was thelinchpin,” a U.S. officialsaid.Finally, in May 2005, al-Libi was captured. Under CIAinterrogation, al-Libi admit-ted that when he was promot-ed to succeed Mohammed,he received the word througha courier. But he made upa name for the courier anddenied knowing al-Kuwaiti,a denial that was so adamantand unbelievable that the CIA

TRIPOLI, Libya —Libyans shouting for revengeburied Moammar Gadhafi’ssecond youngest son to thethundering sound of anti-air-craft fire Monday, as SouthAfrica warned that the NATObombing that killed him wouldonly bring more violence.Libya’s leader did notattend the tumultuous funeralof 29-year-old Seif al-Arab,but older brothers Seif al-Islamand Mohammed paid theirrespects, thronged by a crowdof several thousand. Jostlingto get closer to the coffin,draped with a green Libyanflag, mourners flashed victorysigns and chanted “Revenge,revenge for you, Libya.”Three of Gadhafi’s grand-children, an infant and two tod-dlers, also died in Saturday’sattack, which NATO saystargeted one of the regime’scommand and control centers.Gadhafi and his wife were inthe compound at the time, butescaped unharmed, Libyanofficials said, accusing thealliance of trying to assassi-nate the Libyan leader.NATO officials have deniedthey are hunting Gadhafi tobreak the battlefield stalematebetween Gadhafi’s troops andrebels trying for the past 10weeks to depose him. Rebelslargely control eastern Libya,while Gadhafi has clung tomuch of the west, includingthe capital, Tripoli.Fierce battles have raged inMisrata, a besieged rebel-heldcity in western Libya, whichhas been shelled by Libyanforces every day in recentweeks. Records at one hospi-tal showed that at least eightpeople were killed and 54injured in shelling on Mondaythat lasted all morning andfor a brief period during theafternoon.Rebels have repeatedlycalled on NATO to use morefirepower against Libyantroops. “We call on the worldto deal with Gadhafi just asthey dealt with bin Laden,”said a Misrata doctor, referringto the killing of terror mas-termind Osama bin Laden inPakistan by U.S. forces earlyMonday. The doctor onlygave his first name, Aiman,for fear of reprisals.Under a U.N. mandate,NATO’S role is to protectLibyan civilians, but theinternational community hasincreasingly disagreed aboutwhat that entails. Westernpolitical leaders have calledfor Gadhafi’s ouster, prompt-ing warnings from Russia,China and others that regimechange must not be the objec-tive of NATO’S bombingcampaign, now in its secondmonth.Responding to the attackon Gadhafi compound,South Africa said Mondaythat “attacks on leaders andofficials can only result inthe escalation of tensionsand conflicts on all sides andmake future reconciliationdifficult.” On Sunday, Russiaaccused NATO of a “dis-proportionate use of force”and called for an immediatecease-fire.

took it as confirmation thathe and Mohammed were pro-tecting the courier. It onlyreinforced the idea that al-Kuwaiti was very importantto al-Qaida.If they could find the manknown as al-Kuwaiti, they’dfind bin Laden.The revelation that intel-ligence gleaned from theCIA’s so-called black siteshelped kill bin Laden wasseen as vindication for manyintelligence officials whohave been repeatedly inves-tigated and criticized for theirinvolvement in a programthat involved the harshestinterrogation methods in U.S.history.“We got beat up for it, butthose efforts led to this greatday,” said Marty Martin, aretired CIA officer who foryears led the hunt for binLaden.Mohammed did not dis-cuss al-Kuwaiti while beingsubjected to the simulateddrowning technique known aswaterboarding, former offi-cials said. He acknowledgedknowing him many monthslater under standard interro-gation, they said, leaving itonce again up for debate as towhether the harsh techniquewas a valuable tool or anunnecessarily violent tactic.It took years of workbefore the CIA identified thecourier’s real name: SheikhAbu Ahmed, a Pakistaniman born in Kuwait. Whenthey did identify him, he wasnowhere to be found. TheCIA’s sources didn’t knowwhere he was hiding. BinLaden was famously insistentthat no phones or comput-ers be used near him, so theeavesdroppers at the NationalSecurity Agency kept comingup cold.
