Drug summit: Signsparents should look for
By MIKE FORDmford@delphosherald.com
LIMA — If the parent of a teen or young adult findsan empty Sprite bottle withresidue of purple liquid in it,drug abuse could be a familyreality. According to narcot-ics officers from the FranklinCounty Sheriff’s Office, thisand empty bottles of coughsyrup are the remnants of “robo-tripping” on “drank” or“purple drank.”Because the taste is lessthan pleasant, Jolly Rancherscan be dissolved in the mix-ture to improve the taste.When a 4-ounce bottle of Robitussin is mixed with a20-ounce bottle of Sprite,it’s known as a “twenty-fo”and appears in the lyrics of hip-hop artists like the BlackEyed Peas and Lil Wayne.These and other drugtrends, user practices anddealer tactics were sharedduring Thursday’s drug sum-mit at the civic center. Thepresentation was delivered byLieutenant Shawn Bain andRetired Sergeant Mike Powellof Operation Street Smart.The group has a Facebookpage, if parents would like to“friend” it and receive infor-mation on drug trends.Powell said they havespoken to groups around thecountry 800-900 times inthe group’s 9-year existence.Until Thursday, the largestturnout had been 250 peoplein Circleville. More than 900attended the Lima seminar.Bain and Powell, who is aDelphos native and 1969 St.John’s High School graduate,spoke for approximately fivehours. They covered materialfrom the basics of traditionaldrugs to prescription medica-tion abuse and the misuse of common cold products suchas cough medicine. Theywent into great detail, show-ing videos and actual drugparaphernalia. The goal wasto increase awareness andmany thought it was effec-tive.
Cut taxes, Obamatells Congress in$450B jobs plan
BY BEN FELLERThe Associated Press
WASHINGTON —Attacking a deepening jobscrisis, President BarackObama challenged a reluctantCongress Thursday night tourgently pass a larger-than-expected $450 billion planto “jolt an economy that hasstalled.” He urged lawmak-ers to slash Social Securitytaxes for tens of millions of Americans and for almostevery business to encouragehiring.“Stop the political circus,”an animated Obama told a joint session of Congress ina nationally-televised speech.Over and over he imploredlawmakers to “pass this jobsbill.”Open to discussionbut making no promises,Republican House SpeakerJohn Boehner said Obama’sideas would be consideredbut the president should giveheed to Republicans’ as well.“It’s my hope that we canwork together,” he said.In announcing a planheavy on the tax cuts thatRepublicans tradition-ally love, Obama sought toachieve multiple goals: offera plan that could actuallyget through a deeply-dividedCongress, speed hiring in anation where 14 million areout of work, shore up publicconfidence in his leadershipand put Republicans on thespot to take action.The fate of the economywill define Obama’s re-elec-tion bid, but he sought to dis-miss that element as politicalfodder that means nothing tohurting Americans.Obama never estimatedhow many jobs would be cre-ated by his plan, which alsoincludes new federal spendingfor construction, hiring andan extension of jobless ben-efits for the long-term unem-ployed. Despite his promisethat it would all be paid for,he has not yet released thedetails on how.His message was unmistak-able to the point of repetition,as he told Congress more than15 times in one way or anoth-er to act quickly. That wasmeant as a direct challengeby a Democratic president tothe Republicans running theHouse to get behind his plan,especially on tax cuts, or betarred as standing in the way.The urgency of the jobscrisis is as pronounced as it’sbeen since the early days of Obama’s term. Employersadded zero jobs last month.A whopping number of Americans — about eight in10 — think the country isheaded in the wrong directionand Obama’s approval ratingsare on the decline.In the House chamber,Obama received a warmresponse but then the usualpolitical pattern took hold,Republicans often sitting in

Area counties declaredag disaster areas
Staff reports
The unrelenting rains thearea received last spring andthe excessive heat over thesummer led to 46 Ohio coun-ties, including Allen, Putnamand Van Wert counties, beingnamed as Primary DisasterAreas by the U.S. Departmentof Agriculture’s Farm ServiceAgency on Wednesday.According to the agency,the determination was madebased upon the excessive rain,flooding, flash flooding, highwinds, excessive heat and tor-nados that occurred betweenFeb. 2 and July 31.“Ohio producers can con-tinue to count on USDAto provide emergency assis-tance during these difficulttimes,” said AgricultureSecretary Tom Vilsack in arelease. “President Obamaand I are committed toreducing the impact of thisdisaster for Ohio produc-ers and we will commit allavailable resources to helpin the recovery.”The factors leading to thedesignation were discussedby Van Wert County EMARick McCoy in July. At thetime, he pointed out that theheavy rains in the spring fol-lowed by drought-like con-ditions in the summer hadbeen predicted because of theweather patterns.“They talked about thiswith the La Nina weather pat-tern,” he said. “We wouldhave the miserable winter fol-lowed by a cool but very wetspring. Then it was supposedto turn hot and dry and that’scertainly the pattern we’vefallen into.”Van Wert County receivedless than an inch of rain — .82— from June 20 to July 20.According to the USDA,not only will the named 49counties be able to seekrelief, but also the contiguousareas will also be eligible,including those over the bor-ders in Indiana, Kentucky,Michigan, Pennsylvania andWest Virginia.All the counties listed asa natural disaster area arenow qualified for specialassistance. Farm operatorsmay apply for low-interestemergency loans from theFarm Service Agency andhave eight months to com-plete the paperwork. Thereare also other programsavailable to farmers, such asthe Supplemental RevenueAssistance Program, theEmergency ConservationProgram, Federal CropInsurance and the Non-insuredCrop Disaster AssistanceProgram. Farm operatorswith questions about eligibil-ity or the programs are urgedto contact the local USDAService Center or go to disas-ter.fsa.usda.gov.
The 1800s returnwith the FallRendezvous
BY KIRK DOUGALStaff writer
VAN WERT — TheJennings Creek Council and theVan Wert YMCA are givingarea students and residents achance to step back in time thisweekend at Camp Clay.The JCC will once againdemonstrate what life was likein the Ohio area in the 1800sby using live re-enactors foran interactive experience. Inthose early days of the coun-try, not long after Gen. “Mad”Anthony Wayne had defeatedLittle Turtle and Blue Jacketand signed the Treaty of Greenville, Van Wert Countywas still mostly swamp and allwilderness. Only the bravest of mountain men, buckskinners,trappers and voyagers traveledthrough the area, earning a liv-ing off the land while trying tostay alive in what was still avery hostile area.Those who managed to livethrough the winter would gatherthe next year at a predeterminedspot — a rendezvous — inorder to sell their pelts and othergoods. They would also use thetime to trade for supplies forthe upcoming months and tosee their families and friendsbefore heading back out into thewilderness.Traditionally, these menwould share tales of their adven-tures over the previous monthsand hear the news of the outsideworld. In addition, they test-ed themselves and their skillsagainst each other in contestsof black powder muzzle-loadermarksmanship, tomahawk- andknife-throwing contests, timedevents such as starting a fire andeven playing social games of the period. Historians call theserendezvous some of the mostimportant parts of the wilder-ness men’s lives and somethingthat they looked forward to formonths.The Fall Rendezvous startstoday and is ongoing throughSunday. Everyone is welcomeat the free community event.Over the course of the week-end, the JCC members willtake part in period competi-tions with guns, tomahawks,and knives, cook over openfires and display other skillsof camp life. In addition, the1837 restored log cabin willbe available for viewing.

Delphos Mayor MichaelGallmeier greatly appreciatedthe education.“I think this was very infor-mative because there is an agegap between myself and theyoung people who are abus-ing these substances. I wouldnever know this stuff if not foran event like this. It’s good forfirst responders like those in theEMS, teachers — everybody.We all need to be more aware,”he said.Jefferson High SchoolGuidance Counselor MartinRoss echoed the mayor’sthoughts.“This was very informative;I will be more aware of what’sgoing on and what unusualthings to look out for. I didn’tknow some of the current trendsand that’s why I came,” he said.Police Chief Kyle Fittro alsoattended. He said the level of inside information shared iswhat parents need in order forsome signs of drug abuse tocatch their eye. He added thateven rookie cops should attenda similar event to get the knowl-edge.Powell and Bain also cov-ered the abuse of substanceslike “bath salts,” “K2” and“Kratom,” which is sold in“head shops” where para-phernalia can be purchased.The drug is from a plant inThailand that is similar to SaviaDivinorum, another plant thatcauses euphoric effects likeother opiates. They showed aleaf they bought in a head shopbut said the drug is a finely-processed material that can besmoked or drank — commonlyreferred to as “purple sticky.”They discussed other less-er-known substances such asKetamine, or “Special K,”which is an anaesthetic usedin medical settings. It can bestolen from veterinarian clinicsand can cause near-death expe-riences known as “K Hole.”They also told the story of an Ohio teenager who had notroubled past or showed anysigns of drug use until he wasfound dead in his bedroom witha bag over his head. The boyhad inhaled, or “huffed”, thecompressed air used to removedust from computer keyboards.In drug culture, this is called“dusting” and it can freeze thelungs, causing them to becomeparalyzed. The narcotics expertssaid even if the teen’s motherhad walked into his room witha doctor immediately after heingested the substance, theycould not have saved him. Hewas dead within two minutes.The informational seminarwas designed to paint a pictureof how prevalent drug abuseis and get “everyone on thesame page.” Powell said he wasimpressed with the turnout.“This tells me people herecare; that they are involved andresidents should be very proud.We’ve done this around Ohio;we’ve done it in Las Vegas andthose are great venues, but thisblows them away,” he said.The event was orchestrat-ed by the Mental Health andRecovery Services Board of Allen, Auglaize and HardinCounties. Executive DirectorMichael Shoenhofer hopes tocreate a network of mobilizedcitizens who understand howproblematic drug abuse is in allcommunities — not just metro-politan regions or small townslike Lima. The problem is alsovery present in rural communi-ties like Delphos.“We plan to form task forcesin each of our counties to lookat what we can do to changethe culture. There have beenpockets of work done on this inthe past but we haven’t cometogether as a collective wholeand say this is so important tous that we’ll invest the timeand effort to think about it.Changing the culture will taketime and it will also take thewhole community,” he said.“What each one comes up withwill be a little different but thepeople of Delphos, for example,will identify the things that mostengage their families, schoolsand church groups to cometogether on this issue.“We’ve been so focused onlegislation, enforcement andtreatment but we’ve droppedthe ball on prevention. That’sthe heart of the matter; I wantto see us get back to the heart asa culture because that’s wherewe’ll make real change. I wantto see us get to a place wherepeople are too invested in theirlives and have too much tolose to ever get involved withdrugs.”Susan D.

silence on the applause lines thathad Democrats roaring. Boehnerhad chummy moments withVice President Joe Biden at hisside before the speech but wassomber over Obama’s shoulderas the president spoke.“The people of this countrywork hard to meet their respon-sibilities. The question tonightis whether we’ll meet ours,”Obama said. “The question iswhether, in the face of an ongo-ing national crisis, we can stopthe political circus and actuallydo something to help the econ-omy.”The newest and boldest ele-ment of Obama’s plan wouldcut the Social Security payrolltax both for tens of millions of workers and for employers, too.For individuals, that tax hasbeen shaved from 6.2 percent to4.2 percent for this year but is togo back up again without actionby Congress. Obama wants todeepen the cut to 3.1 percent forworkers.Obama would also apply thepayroll tax cut to employers,halving their taxes to 3.1 percenton their first $5 million in pay-roll. Businesses that hire newworkers or give raises to thosethey already employ would getan even bigger benefit: On pay-roll increases up to $50 mil-lion they would pay no SocialSecurity tax.

The Van Wert County Fairis over for another year, andVantage FCCLA (Family,Career and CommunityLeaders of America) studentsin Early Childhood Educationand Culinary Arts have somefond memories of it.On Senior Citizen Day,about 30 Early ChildhoodEducation students helpedresidents of Vancrest maneu-ver through the CommercialBuilding at the Van WertCounty Fair and helped themget their lunch.Senior Joseph Shoppellfrom Lincolnview said “Wehelped get food and drinksfor them.

Ohio prosecutors: Delayserial killer’s rape trial
CLEVELAND (AP) — Nextweek’s rape-kidnapping trial of a convicted serial killer shouldbe postponed while he appealshis murder conviction to avoid jeopardizing the death penaltyhanded down against him, pros-ecutors said Thursday.The two cases are intertwinedin that testimony from victimsin the pending rape-kidnappingcase helped convict AnthonySowell, 52, last month in theslayings of 11 women whosebodies were dumped around hishouse and property.Assistant Cuyahoga CountyProsecutors Aaron Brockler andMahmoud Awadallah hintedat a possible plea deal involv-ing the pending charges againstSowell.“The sides are not far apartin the negotiation process,” theysaid in their motion asking fora delay of Monday’s trial. “Aplea will conserve the court’sresources and not threaten thedefendant’s death penalty con-viction.”No details were mentionedin the filing. The prosecutor’soffice had no comment Thursdayon the plea negotiations, spokes-woman Maria Russo said.Prosecutors said a delay alsowould be helpful because Sowellcould be indicted for an allegedassault in Cleveland Heights.“It makes little sense for thedefendant and the state to resolvethese cases while a new casecould be imminent,” the motionsaid.Both sides met privately withthe judge on the case againstSowell, who was sentenced todeath last month.As he left the court, Sowell’sattorney, Jaye Schlachet, saidonly that the trial was still sched-uled for Monday.
