DELPHOS — Havingcompleted maintenance proj-ects during the summer, thecity is looking ahead. Plansare in place to improve theeast side business district bywidening Elida Avenue andinstalling a sidewalk alongElida Road and part of FifthStreet.The sidewalk will stretchbetween Point Marathon toFifth Street and round thecorner, ending just east of Cabo Mexican Restaurant.Many who move into theDelphos Senior Villas willlikely appreciate havinga walkway to the EastownCenter. The sidewalk willcost $73,000 and local tax-payer dollars were only spenton the engineering requiredto make a sales pitch to thegovernment when competingfor the grant.“The majority of the moneycomes from federal highwayfunding through the OhioDepartment of Transportationand the city has a match —the grant is an 80-20 match.The 20 percent will be cov-ered by the two properties— L&W Associates andSuperior Federal CreditUnion. All the city has in it isfor engineering; I don’t recallhow much we spent but itwas less than $10,000 to getthe process and then, we’llend up with nice sidewalks,”Safety Service Director GregBerquist said.Berquist explained thestate’s amount is $52,000.Finals bills will be receivedlater; the credit union and theapartment complex will bebilled to make up the differ-ence, whatever amount thatshould be. A start date hasnot been determined becausethe project has encountereda snag.“We don’t have a start datebecause we had to rebid itand that set it back. The engi-neer forgot to include fencingretention for mud in the bidspecs and when the contrac-tor didn’t see it, they didn’tbid on it and didn’t put it in.There are screens you haveto put up to hold mud back,”he said.The city also plans to con-tinue a long-term rebuildingof Elida Avenue. Drivershave likely noticed a bumpyride for some time. Thenorth edge of the road acrossfrom Rite Aid has been inpoor condition since L&WAssociates connected withthe city’s storm sewer line inJanuary, roughing up the edgeof the road. The city patchedit in Spring but that was amere temporary solution. Thesouth lane of Elida Avenue isalso in poor condition, with aline of poorly-repaired holesstringing from Summer Laneto Elida Road. The city filledthem in long ago but that wasa mere temporary solution.Another problem withElida Avenue is it doesn’tmeet state requirements fora three-lane road. Wideningit between Summer Laneand McDonalds will cost$18,000 and will come froma permissive tax stemmingfrom gasoline sales. This willmake the roadway eligible forfederal funds to pave ElidaAvenue from Elida Roadto Douglas Street, whichBerquist said will cost morethan $100,000.“L&W put in a storm line;we’ll clean it up and paveit out on that one side (thenorth side) to get the streetready. The three lanes aren’treally three lanes — theydon’t meet Ohio Departmentof Transportation specifica-tions for legal lane width.

Memory of 
When I come to the endof my Journey And I travel my last weary mile, Just forget if you can,that I ever frowned And remember only thesmile. Forget unkind words I have ever spoken;Remember some good I have done Forget that I have stumbled and blundered And sometimes fell by the way.Remember I have fought some hard battles And won, ere the close of the day,Then forget to grieve for my going,I would not have you sad for a day,But in summer just gather up some flowers And remember the place where I lay, And come in the evening When the sun pans the sky in the west Stand for a few moments beside me And remember only my best 
We miss you each and every day Drew, until we meet again.Loving you always,Mom, Dad, Carissa, Brayden, Amanda W, Amanda M, Justin, Cody, Casey

Only a person who has no clue who I am— well, millions, really — wouldn’t know thatI’m a dog lover — and animal lover, really. (Ilike the ducks. There’s just too many.)In another lifetime, I would be a veterinar-ian or a zookeeper or something to do with thecare of animals. Shoulda, woulda, coulda.I thoroughly enjoy the companionship Ishare with my dog and the pleasure my hus-band I get from being dog owners.I also want everyone else to enjoy my dog,too. I don’t want him to jump on people (JackRussell, hello) or make a nuisance of himself.We don’t feed him “people food” so hedoesn’t bother people when it’s time to eat.Of course his sister got people food and welearned from our mistake.We took Ringo to classes and still workwith him on his commands. Some days heworks us.I won’t fib and say he hasn’t misbehaved or jumped on someone or made a pest of himself.He has. He’s a puppy.He’s also ornery as all get out. Sometimes it just oozes out of him. He gets this little gleamin his eye and cocks his head ever so slightlyas he pins you down with his blue-black eyes.This is all the warning you get that something’sgoing to happen.On two occasions now, one of us and ourlittle guy have been confronted by someoneelse’s dog in our own yard while Ringo’s ona leash.A dog is a really big responsibility — time,money and effort.They are dogs and we are the masters. Thatmeans it’s up to us to teach the dog mannersand a cute trick or two along the way andensure their safety, health and well-being.That also means they stay on their ownproperty.We have had a dog for almost 14 years andhave never just opened the door the let oneof them out, unleashing them on people whoperhaps don’t like dogs or just don’t like some-one else’s dog in their yard or bothering theirchildren or animals.It’s a good neighbor, courteous thing.It’s also safer for the dog. That way there’sno chance of it getting hit by a car or injured insome other way.I know it’s hard to believe that everyoneelse doesn’t love your dog as much as you do.I am surprised by this on occasion myself.For whatever reason - because it’s theright thing to do, because you love your dog,because you like me — whatever; please fel-low dog owners, keep ‘em on a leash.
On theOther hand
Who let the dogs out?

So we’ll widen it. Thatway, next year, if we getthe public works Issue 1grant we applied for, it willbe ready to go,” he said.Berquist added that rightof way is restricted, so theroad can only be widened,right now, where right of way allows it. The road infront of US Bank is onlytwo-lanes and the cityowns the land in question.Berquist said what will beadded to the side of theroad is just a 4 1/2 footstrip.The city installed side-walks on Elida Avenue acouple years ago with a grantfrom the Ohio Departmentof Transportation. This pastsummer, the city also spent$19,000 to tar and chipseveral roads in town andinstalled sewer lines in theMenke housing subdivisionon W. Lincoln Highwayand along Erie Street. Bothlines were paid for with80/20 matching grants. Thecity was responsible for thelower end of the match andengineering costs, bring-ing taxpayer total for theMenke project to $23,719and the Erie Street job’slocal cost was $24,022.

VAN WERT — There islittle as exciting on stage asthe power, the energy and themagic of dance. On Sunday,Ballroom with a Twist hitsthe boards at the NiswongerPerforming Arts Center,bringing a variety of danc-ing as well as some featuredperformers from television’sDancing With the Stars, SoYou Think You Can Dance,and even American Idol.Randi Lynn Evans wasa contestant on Season Fiveof So You Think You CanDance.“I can’t say enough aboutit. It’s a great show,” shedeclared. “What’s neat aboutit is I think you get a littlebit of everything... There’snever a dull moment. I thinkyou’ll walk out of there feel-ing like, ‘Wow! That was agreat night! I’m so glad I sawthat!’”Evans is in her secondyear of the stage show, butit was the Fox televisionseries that put her career onthe map. Born and raised inUtah, Evans “did the wholeNew York thing” as a dancer,but on the third year of try-ing out, landed a spot on SoYou Think You Can Dancein 2009.“That kind of took myworld and flipped it upside-down,” she remembered. “Itwas very surreal. All of asudden you walk out andpeople know your name, andthey start recognizing youand congratulating you. It’s just so bizarre. But you getthat platform to share whatyou do and what you’vebeen working on your entirelife. It’s a really neat expe-rience. Definitely once in alifetime, and one I’ll neverforget.”Although she said that it ishard to explain the experienceto someone who has not livedthrough it, Evans has com-pany on the tour who under-stands. From cast membersof Dancing with the Stars, SoYou Think You Can Danceand American Idol, there is asense of family.Evans explained, “Beingon a reality show is verystrange, and I think it’sone that you can’t explainin words to anybody unlessyou’ve gone through it. So Ithink we definitely bond inthat way. We’ve been throughthe chaos, and all the work,and all the auditions, andall that craziness, and we’refinally on the other side. Sowe all can relate. But we’reall really so grateful becausein the end it’s brought us alltogether, and we’re all doingthis show. Things have a wayof working themselves outinto great times!”Among those in the castare American Idol contestantsGina Glockson from seasonsix and David Hernandez of season seven.The talent impresses evenEvans.“The people that I workwith are just out-of-this-world-amazing, so I’m a pret-ty lucky girl!” she quipped.Evans is particularly proudthat although she is by trade acontemporary dancer, she hasworked her way into ball-room dancing numbers in theshow.“Ever since I did it onceon So You Think You CanDance, I’ve been obsessedwith it. I worked reallyhard to kind of perfect that.So I’m lucky. I’m alreadydoing what I set out to do.There’s definitely a lot of room for improvement, butat least I’m on my way!”she shared.The energy and fun of Ballroom with a Twist comesto Van Wert for a 3 p.m. showon Sunday at the NiswongerPerforming Arts Center.Tickets are still available atthe NPAC Box Office.“If you are coming tothe show, you should knowthat you are in for a nightof excitement,” warnedEvans. “It’s almost like aroller coaster. It’s not sooverwhelming in your face.It’s fun. It’s emotional. It’sexciting. It’s a mix betweenso many different styles of dance, there’s never a dullmoment.”

COLUMBUS (AP) —Candidates for office say a$100 fee for politicians whowant to march in an OhioColumbus Day weekendparade is unfair, but a civillibertarian says they mayhave to live with it becausethe event is privately run.The money helps withthe cost of sweeping upafter campaigners, whotend to hand out candyand political materials thatresult in litter, said orga-nizers of Sunday’s ItalianParade. They also told TheColumbus Dispatch thatpoliticians should pay forthe privilege of getting theirfaces before voters alongthe parade route just weeksbefore Election Day.“It’s bargain-basementadvertising for the lastparade before the election,”said Deb Roberts, the chair-woman of the parade.None of its other par-ticipants are required topay anything, the Dispatchreported. That annoys JimO’Grady, a candidate forFranklin County MunicipalCourt judge, who plansto march with his family,including his 4-year-olddaughter, in a wagon withbags of candy.“I don’t know how theycan target any single entrantwhen anyone in a parade isusing it to get their nameout,” O’Grady said.“I think it would be morefair if all the entrants wererequired to pay,” addedBarbara Pfeiffer, also run-ning for a Municipal Court judgeship.
