NY, Washington, aware oterror threat but not afraid
By EILEEN SULLIVANand LOLITA C. BALDORAssociated Press
WASHINGTON —Undaunted by talk of a newterror threat, New Yorkersand Washingtonians woveamong police armed withassault rifles and waited withvarying degrees of patienceat security checkpoints Fridaywhile intelligence officialsscrambled to nail down infor-mation on a possible al-Qaidastrike timed to coincide withthe 10th anniversary of 9/11.Counterterrorism officialshave been working around theclock to determine whetherthe threat is accurate, and extrasecurity was put in place toprotect the people in the twocities that took the brunt of the jetliner attacks that killednearly 3,000 people at theWorld Trade Center and thePentagon a decade ago. It wasthe worst terror assault in thenation’s history, and al-Qaidahas long dreamed of strikingagain to mark the anniversary.But it could be weeks beforethe intelligence communitycan say whether this particularthreat is real.Security worker EricMartinez wore a pin depictingthe twin towers on his lapelas he headed to work in lowerManhattan on Friday wherehe also worked 10 years agowhen the towers came down.“If you’re going to be afraid,you’re just going to stayhome,” he said.Mayor Michael Bloomberg,too, made a point of taking thesubway to City Hall.Briefed on the threat Fridaymorning, President BarackObama instructed his secu-rity team to take “all neces-sary precautions,” the WhiteHouse said. Obama still plansto travel to New York onSunday to mark the 10th anni-versary with stops that day atthe Pentagon and Shanksville,Pa.Washington commuterswere well aware of the terrortalk.Cheryl Francis, of Chantilly, Va., said she trav-els over the Roosevelt bridgeinto Washington every dayand doesn’t plan to changeher habits. Francis, who wasin Washington on Sept. 11,2001, said a decade later thecountry is more aware andalert.“It’s almost like sleepingwith one eye open,” she said,but she added that people needto continue living their lives.Late Wednesday, U.S.officials received informationabout a threat that includeddetails they considered specif-ic: It involved up to three peo-ple, either in the U.S. or whowere traveling to the country;a plan concocted with the helpof al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahri; a car bomb as a pos-sible weapon and New Yorkor Washington as potentialtargets.Officials described theinformation to The AssociatedPress only on condition of anonymity because they werenot authorized to publiclydiscuss the sensitive matters.Counterterrorism officialswere looking for certain namesassociated with the threat, butit was unclear whether thenames were real or fake.At least one of the threepeople involved in the plotwas thought to be a U.S. citi-zen, several senior U.S. offi-cials said.The intelligence communi-ty regularly receives tips andinformation of this nature. Butthe timing of this particularthreat had officials especiallyconcerned, because it was thefirst “active plot” that cameto light as the country markedthe significant anniversary, amoment that was also sig-nificant to al-Qaida, accord-ing to information gleaned inMay from Osama bin Laden’scompound.

Some things just are
NANCY SPENCER
On theOther hand
Don’t sweat the small stuff; it’s all smallstuff.We’ve all heard it before.Life is stressful. There is so much moregoing on now.I have found the secret to keeping my san-ity. If I truly cannot change the outcome of something, I don’t invest in it.If I have no control over something, whyworry about it?I always used to tease my mom about it.She’d say, “Yeah, but. ...”And I’d tell her, “The yeah-buts aredead.”She was and still is a worrier. I have saidif she doesn’t have anything to worry about,she makes it up. If I truly wanted to know allthe ramification of an action, I’d just sick mymom on it. She would come up with everypossible pitfall and down side.However, on the flip side, some thingsneed worried about. They need time, atten-tion and nurturing for us to get the maximumbenefit.Then there are the things that just are whatthey are.Cameron has at times been upset becausesomeone he was really close to before he wentto prison hasn’t written or made attempts tokeep in touch. I had to tell him that he wasthe one who went away. Life goes on — withor without you.He also went away a time in a person’slife when a lot of changes take place. He was just out of high school and trying to figureout how the real world work, etc. He wasn’ttoo impressed that his less-than-motivatedlifestyle was getting him a little less than hethought he deserved.The things that filled his days and nightsas a high-schooler were lost in the pages of his yearbook.Cameron just hit a hiccup. He had to standat the sidelines and wait for his turn.In five weeks, he will be out on his own.SCARY! (In a Disney falsetto voice.) Butit’s also a wonderful, exhilarating time whenhe gets to really make it on his own. He’llbe making decision that can make or breakhim but at least he gets to make them — andhis mistakes. Hopefully they won’t be toopainful.Cameron deserves a break. He has workedreally hard just to be in a position to make thedecisions — right or wrong.A new challenge Cameron has had to faceis finding the right people to associate with.In the halfway house he doesn’t have a lot of choice. They are, I’m sure, a motley crew.However, he also has the opportunity tomeet new people through work and some of the events his restaurant hosts.It’s easy to want to be around people whofun and not so much to be around people whomake you think, question yourself and wantyou to work toward your goals.I know a lot of people who are much olderthan Cameron and still trying to get it right.He has gained a lot of wisdom and had quitea few “aha” moments.Life can be as difficult as you make it;as complicated as you let it; and everythingyou want it to be if you’re willing to put inthe time.We make our own luck and no onewho forges our path for us is doing us anyfavors.The best advice I have for him is theSerenity Prayer.
God grant me the serenityto accept the things I cannot change;courage to change the things I can;and wisdom to know the difference.
And the knowledge some things just arewhat they are — with or without you and nomatter what you do.

On the Banks of Yesteryear 
From the Delphos Canal Commission
That Horn
Canal Days is fast approaching and one of the events thatdraws a lot of people is the waterball contest. Area firefighterscome together to participate in a wet game of “who can get theball across the opponents line”. If you have never experiencedthis event, you need to check it out this year.Contests between fire departments are nothing new.Delphos was a bustling town of almost 2,000 citizens on May3, 1872, when a fire started in the rear of Shenk and Lang’sDrug Store and quickly spread through the wooden structuresin the area bordered by Washington Street to the east, SecondStreet to the south, Canal Street to the west, and Third Streetto the north, burning 45 of them completely to the ground. Theonly means of fighting the fire were bucket brigades usingwater from the canal.This disaster was labeled the “Black Friday Fire.”On July 1,1872, just two months later, the WashingtonVolunteer Fire Company was organized and quickly madea name for itself. An 1870’s Delphos Herald printed the fol-lowing :
We know our Lima neighbors will pardon us if we proceed to a little blowing over the merematter of “taking a horn,” an indulgence towhich our friends at the county seat are not entirely strangers. On this occasion it wastaken straight and a good deal of it. But asthere are so many kinds of horns, we ought to specify the particular horn referred to above. It was a large horn — a very fine horn — a hornupon which Lima had set its eye. It was a fireman’s silver horn, or more properlyspeaking, trumpet, offered at the Catholic fair held at Lima last week to the most pop-ular fire company. Sometimes popularity isbought, and if this was of the merchantablekind, it is none the less prized, as the market was open and accessible to all.The Washington boys of Delphos received 364 votes, which, being a majority, entitled them to the trumpet. It is a valuable companionto the banner carried by them from the StateTournament, and of course, will be highly prized. Next!
And from the 1885 History of Allen County,
The prizes carried off by this company are named as follows: Ohio State Banner, at Galion, Ohio, in 1873; Northwestern Ohio State Banner, at Van Wert, Ohio 1874;a trumpet at Lima, Ohio, 1876; a trumpet at Van Wert, Ohio1877; a trumpet at Delphos, Ohio 1882; a United States flagat Delphos, Ohio, 1882; a money prize at Northwestern Ohiotournament, held at St. Mary’s, Ohio, 1883, and a money prizeat Sandusky, Ohio in 1884.
 The museum has the three trumpets and recently receiveda banner from a thoughtful donor who saw it for sale inMichigan and bought it for us.We will be open during Canal Days so stop in to see thehorns and our new displays on the main floor and upstairs.While you are there, check out the nine beautiful baskets thatsome lucky persons will win during our raffle. If you purchasesome tickets, it could be you.
