Mohler, Begg vie for commissioner seat
BY MIKE FORDmford@delphosherald.com
Two Republicans are cam-paigning for the Allen Countycommissioner seat held byDan Reiff. Lynn Mohler, 67,is an American Townshiptrustee with a background inschool administration and JayBegg, 58, is a lifelong farmerwho has been the county fair-board president for 16 years.The two GOP candidates arethe only ones on the ballot forthe seat that will need filledJan. 3. No other political partyhas candidates on the primaryballot for this seat. Therefore,unless an independent files byMarch 5, the winner will bethe new commissioner.“I’m in my first term as anAmerican Township trusteeand that experience has pre-pared me for the commissionerposition by preparing budgets,negotiating union contractsand overseeing departments,such as fire, police, emergen-cy medical, zoning inspectorsand others. All of those thingshave helped prepare me,”Mohler said.“I also have a backgroundin administration. I was thesuperintendent of TempleChristian School, which Istarted in 1976. I did every-thing there; they said it wasmy baby, so they had me doeverything. I did all of thebudgets, the hiring, the firing,the purchasing — I took careof it. I even coached. I had25-30 people working for meat any one time, so that man-agement experience helpedprepare me considerably.”Mohler also worked in theinsurance industry and cur-rently manages a small insur-ance agency in Bluffton.He said being a trustee in atownship full of retail outlets,including the Lima Mall, hasimpressed on him the impor-tance of building a good rela-tionship with businesses.“All those years in non-profit, the township and busi-ness development work haveprepared me to be a commis-sioner. In American Township,we deal with a lot of retail andeconomic development is abig part of what we do,” hesaid.This feeds into whatMohler says is his biggestgoal, if elected: using eco-nomic development to boostsales tax revenue instead of raising the sales tax.“My primary goal forthe commissioner’s positionwould be to try to get back towhere we were a few years agoin terms of economic devel-opment because 50 percentof our revenue comes fromsales tax while 10 percent of it comes from property taxes.The sales tax is the engine thatdrives our economy, so if wecan develop a better economicbase, we can provide moresales tax revenue and we canalso provide more services,”he said.Mohler is also ready totackle the county budget.“Also, you have to main-tain a good budget. You haveto be conservative, which Iam, so I’m looking at it fromthe standpoint of maintainingthe budget and keeping an eyeon spending. I don’t believe inraising taxes and I don’t seemyself voting for a sales taxincrease. I believe in less gov-ernment while still providingservices,” he said.Mohler and his wife,Nancy, have been married 45years. They raised three chil-dren, who gave them threegrandchildren.If Begg wins the nomina-tion, he wants to make gov-ernment more lean.“My goal is to providebetter government with lessmoney. It’s an achievablegoal; I think we have toomany areas where there is aduplication of service and Ithink we lack long-term plan-ning. I know commissionersare elected a term at a timebut I think we need to lookbeyond that to a five-year planfor the future — for improve-ments, capital needs, majorrepairs and shared services.My goal is to make AllenCounty a better place and Ithink I can do that,” he said.“I’m running because I wasnot elected last time and I stillthink I have something to giveto the county. I think I canbring a commitment, a workethic, a different approach tothe office of county commis-sioner than maybe what we’veexperienced for a while. Ithink my management styleat the fair will lend itself tobeing a commissioner. I thinkthere’s room for improvementin communication, in get-ting elected officials to worktogether and maybe even cross jurisdictional lines. In today’sworld, we’re going to have toexplore all options to providebetter government for lessmoney.”Begg wants county govern-ment to put state lawmakers’feet to the fire.“We have to hold our statelegislators to task. We’regoing to have to be strongeradvocates. I understand thestate’s budget issues; thingswere rolling along prettygood, then it caught all of us.” he said. “Very few peo-ple were not touched by therecession but if we’re going tochange the rules of how we’vefunded things for many yearsthrough Local GovernmentFunds, my contention is thatyou better change the rules sowe can live with less funding.There needs to be regulatorychanges, Ohio Revised Coderevisions to let us be morecompetitive and not put somany shackles on us if we’renot going to have funds todeal with things. We can’t beexpected to magically pro-vide the same services withless funding.”Begg also has a back-ground of service with theAllen County Cattlemen andas board president of theFarm Bureau. He has servedon the Columbus Groveschool board, Ottawa RiverCoalition, a chamber of com-merce board, West Ohio FoodBank and helped found theAllen County Ag Society.He and his wife, Stephanie,have been married for 27years. They raised five kidswho gave them eight grand-children.

Tensionswith Iranraise safetyconcerns
WASHINGTON — Thegovernment is worried thatIran will consider a terrorattack on American soil, butit has no specific or cred-ible threat about such a plot.Police from Los Angeles toNew York City said they wereanxious about the risks, evenas a senior U.S. intelligenceofficial reassured Congressthat it was unlikely Iran wouldattack.Law enforcement officialsare keeping an eye out forpotential Iranian operatives oranyone with links to the coun-try’s proxy terrorist group,Hezbollah, as tensions esca-late amid bombings overseasand tough talk from Iran’sgovernment about its nuclearenergy program.Los Angeles, which has oneof the largest Iranian commu-nities outside Iran, has movedpotential Iranian threats to thetop of its intelligence briefingsover the past few weeks. TheNew York Police Departmentsaid it assumes Iran wouldattack the city, with its espe-cially large Jewish popula-tion.“The attacks overseas rais-es everybody’s anxiety level alittle bit,” said Deputy Chief Michael Downing, command-er of the Los Angeles PoliceDepartment’s counterterror-ism and special operationsbureau. In recent weeks, Iranhas been blamed for bomb-ings in India, Georgia andThailand. “It’s been at theforefront,” Downing said.Iran has accused Israel, itslongtime adversary, of kill-ing some of its nuclear scien-tists, while Israel has warnedof a military strike againstIran’s nuclear energy programover concerns it could leadto development of a nuclearbomb.Amid the tensions, LosAngeles increased its outreachto Iranian and Jewish com-munities, assuring them thereis no reason to be paranoid oroverly anxious, Downing saidin an interview.
Boehner says payroll tax bill won’t add jobs
By ANDREW TAYLORThe Associated Press
WASHINGTON — CapitolHill negotiators officiallyunveiled hard-fought compro-mise legislation to prevent 160million workers from gettingslapped with a payroll tax hike,even as the top Republican inCongress said the $143 billionmeasure won’t do anything tohelp the economy.The measure is a top elec-tion-year priority for PresidentBarack Obama and gener-ally won backing from hisDemocratic allies in Congress.But it’s getting only grudgingsupport from House Republicansand even less from Obama’sGOP rivals in the Senate, whereparty negotiators shunned themeasure and its $89 billionimpact on the budget deficitover the coming decade.“Let’s be honest, this is aneconomic relief package, nota bill that’s going to grow theeconomy and create jobs,”House Speaker John Boehner,R-Ohio, said. But after losing afight over the legislation at theend of last year, Republicanswere determined to clear it off of the political agenda and focusvoters on Obama’s record ratherthan their battles with him.“It was impossible to breakthrough on the politics,” Rep.Greg Walden, R-Ore., said.The measure is expected topass both House and Senatetoday, and Obama has promisedto sign it right away.The legislation would extendthrough the end of the year a 2percentage-point cut in payrolltaxes that would fatten a typicalbimonthly paycheck by $40. Italso would renew jobless ben-efits that deliver about $300 aweek to people out of work formore than six months.And it would head off asteep cut in reimbursements forphysicians who treat Medicarepatients, at a cost of $18 bil-lion, financed in part by cuts toa fund created under Obama’s2010 health care law thatawards grants for preventivecare and by curbs on Medicaidpayments to hospitals that carefor a disproportionate share of uninsured patients.The pact was sealed afterweeks of negotiations, first apublic round featuring speech-ifying and bickering, and thena more intense private roundin which Rep. Dave Camp,R-Mich., and Sen. Max Baucus,D-Mont., took the lead. The twomen, the respective chairmenof the House and Senate panelwith jurisdiction over taxes,unemployment insurance andMedicare, have forged a closeworking relationship, even astop party leaders publicly tradedsalvos over the negotiations.Combative Democrats likeSen. Chuck Schumer of NewYork openly boasted of theleverage Democrats carried intothe talks. He almost seemed towelcome a reprise of a bruisingDecember battle when HouseRepublicans refused to back abipartisan Senate bill providinga two-month extension of thetax cuts and jobless benefits tobuy time for negotiations on ayearlong deal.But Republicans had nointerest in reprising theirDecember experience, whenthey got their heads handed tothem after a barrage of criticismfrom Republicans and conser-vatives around the country -featured almost every hour on24-hour cable new networks.GOP leaders gave the talksa major boost over the weekendby dropping a demand that thetax cut be paid for with spend-ing cuts.The move guaranteed thatthe measure wouldn’t be popu-lar with deficit hawks in eitherparty, and Sens. Joe Manchin,D-W.Va., and Mark Warner,D-Va., came out against themeasure on Thursday.According to a CongressionalBudget Office estimate releasedThursday, the measure wouldadd $141 billion to the deficitduring fiscal 2012-2013, with$52 billion of that cost gradu-ally recouped over the comingdecade.Still, piling most of the mea-sure’s cost onto the $15 trillion-plus national debt meant negoti-ators had to find just $50 billionor so in revenues or spendingcuts to finance renewing joblessbenefits and fixing the Medicarepayment rate.About $15 billion came asfree money to be raised by auc-tioning off parts of the broad-cast television airwaves towireless companies. Even morewould be raised in upcomingauctions, but broadcast licenseholders would be compensatedfor giving up spectrum, while$7 billion would be dedicatedto creating a new public safetynetwork for emergency firstresponders. That would com-plete a key remaining recom-mendation of the commissionthat looked into the way emer-gency officials dealt with the9/11 terror attacks.The last major hang-upinvolved changes to a provi-sion demanded by Republicansto require federal workers con-tribute more to their generousdefined benefit pension plans.Most pension systems haveswitched to less generous butmore mobile defined contribu-tion plans.

BARBERVILLE, Fla. – For the second straightnight at the UNOH DIRTcarNationals, Kenny Wallaceobviously had the fast-est car in the 20-lap UMPModified feature as he rolledoff another win Thursday atVolusia Speedway Park.With the win, Wallacemaintained his overall pointslead. He was fourth onthe first night of racing inFlorida, following that upwith his two straight winsin his No. 36 University of Northwestern Ohio car.“I must admit, this is aspecial car. It does every-thing a driver wants it todo,” Wallace said. “Oncein a while, you come on toa car like this. We knowwhat we have, and now we just have to take care of it.“I tell everyone it’s likea go-kart. When you go toa fun park, you watch thego-karts go around and say‘I want to get in that onebecause it’s so fast.’ Racingis kind of like that, exceptyou have control over itbecause you build the cars.”Also representing UNOHin the feature was Ty Dillon,who finished third, andKenny Schrader, who wasright behind in fourth. AustinDillon was seventh andTodd Sherman was 28th.The four student-drivenUNOH cars failed to makethe feature for the secondstraight night but the crewsmade adjustments throughoutthe night resulting in fastercars as the night wore on.In the last race of the night,the Bullrash Dash, ChrisPuskas, Travis Fleshmanand Josh Ulrich all com-mented on how much fasterand better their cars felt.While he didn’t drive inthe Bullrush, Kody Weisneragain narrowly missed thefeature but adjustmentsmade from Wednesday toThursday left the driver feel-ing good about his chancesthe rest of the weekend.The races continuetonight before qualify-ing for Monday’s GatorChampionship get startedon Saturday and Sunday.Wallace grabbed hissecond win in Floridaon Wednesday. Healso won Saturday atEast Bay in Tampa.Wallace has two UNOHstudents on his crew thisweek – Cody Bland andLance Weppler. Blandand Weisner were on hisWallace’s crew at East Bay.“It’s exciting to be a partof his team. It’s nothing youcan get in the classroom; thereal-world experience is justpriceless,” Bland said. “It’spretty exciting, two wins.“To have UNOH on theside of the car at the UNOHDIRTcar Nationals, it’shuge for him to get a winlike this. He’s a great rep-resentative of the school.”Wallace said of havingUNOH students on his crew:“All of the UNOH studentshave a lot of talent. … That’swhat I like about UNOH –they put the students in there;it’s like a super-internship.”

The chairman of the HouseHomeland Security Committee,Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., saidHezbollah and Iran are capableof attacking inside the U.S. Kingsaid he received two intelligencebriefs on the Iranian threat in thepast two weeks.“We know they’re here,mainly facilitators and fundrais-ers, that type of thing,” Kingsaid. “How quickly they couldbe activated, what others thereare here, that’s the unknown.”An unclassified U.S. govern-ment intelligence bulletin circu-lated last week and obtained byThe Associated Press warned,“We remain concerned Iranwould consider attacks in theUnited States,” and predictedthat domestic violent extremists“will continue to threaten andconduct isolated acts of violenceagainst Jewish organizations.”But it acknowledged, “Wehave no specific informationthat Iran or its surrogates aretargeting Jewish organizations,facilities or personnel in theUnited States.”The head of the DefenseIntelligence Agency, Lt. Gen.Ronald Burgess, told Congresson Thursday that his agencybelieves Iran is “unlikely to ini-tiate or intentionally provoke aconflict,” although he acknowl-edged that Iran could attempt todeploy terrorist agents aroundthe world.Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.,similarly warned, “The rulers inIran clearly pose a more directthreat to us than many wouldhave assumed just a year ago.”In New York, the directorof intelligence analysis for theNew York Police Department,Mitchell D. Silber, called thethreat there “neither an idle nora new threat.”“Iran’s next target couldwell be on American soil,”Silber wrote in an opinion piecethis week in The Wall StreetJournal.Homeland Security SecretaryJanet Napolitano conducted aconference call last week with250 members of the U.S Jewishcommunity to discuss the poten-tial threat from Iran and urgedthem to remain on the lookoutfor anything suspicious, saidPaul Goldenberg, director of theSecure Community Network, anorganization that oversees safetyfor Jewish groups around thecountry.

Bird flu still a menacein Asia and beyond
By MARGIE MASONThe Associated Press
HANOI, Vietnam —Thought bird flu was gone?Recent human deaths in Asiaand Egypt are a reminder thatthe H5N1 virus is still aliveand dangerous, and Vietnam isgrappling with a new strain thathas outsmarted vaccines used toprotect poultry flocks.Ten people have died inCambodia, Indonesia, Egypt,China and Vietnam sinceDecember during the prime-time flu season when the virustypically flares in poultry.“We are worried, and wewill be very cautious,” saidTo Long Thanh, director of Vietnam’s Center for AnimalHealth Diagnostics in Vietnam.The H5N1 virus has killed345 people worldwide since2003, when it rampaged acrosslarge swaths of Asia decimatingpoultry stocks before later surfac-ing in parts of Africa, the MiddleEast and Europe. The numberof poultry outbreaks has greatlydiminished since then, but thevirus remains entrenched in sev-eral countries and continues tosurface sporadically, resulting in20 to 30 human deaths globallyin recent years.Bird flu remains hard forpeople to catch, with most peo-ple sickened after being in closecontact with infected poultry,but experts have long fearedit could spark a pandemic if itmutates into a form that spreadseasily among people.The fresh wave of casescomes amid a controversyinvolving scientists who cre-ated new lab-only versions of the virus that spread more easilyamong animals, hoping to bet-ter understand it. After a louduproar over whether publish-ing the research would put therecipe for a bioweapon into thehands of terrorists, the research-ers have agreed to temporarilyhalt their work.They are set to wrap up a two-day meeting on the issue todaywith international experts at theWorld Health Organization inGeneva.Vietnam has long struggledto control the virus, but it hasmade progress — going 21months before reporting itstwo most recent deaths in thepast month. It has also experi-enced a burst of poultry out-breaks in 11 provinces nation-wide over the same period.Officials have issued freshwarnings for farmers to beef up surveillance, especiallysince they can no longer relyon the latest poultry vaccinein the north and central aresswhere it is weak or uselessagainst a new strain that hasemerged in the region.
Man faces two charges of domestic violence
At 12:40 a.m. onWednesday, Delphos Policewere called to a residencein the 202 Holland Avenuetrailer park in reference to adomestic violence complaint.Upon officers’ arrival,they spoke with the subjectsinvolved in the altercation, atwhich time the female sub- ject advised she wished to betaken to a shelter for abusedpeople in Lima. At that point,officers took the female to theDelphos Police Departmentfor further investigation onthe complaint and to makearrangements to transport herto the shelter.A short time later, themale half also came to thepolice department, at whichtime officers had foundenough probable cause toarrest Gregary Young, 32,of Delphos for threateningto cause or causing physicalharm to a family or house-hold member. At which timeYoung was transported to theAllen County Jail and wasscheduled to appear in LimaMunicipal Court on Thursdayto face the charge.Upon reviewing the casewith the prosecutor’s office,enough probable cause wasfound for a second charge of domestic violence on Youngfor causing or threatening tocause physical harm on thesame vic-tim ear-lier thatwas notimme-diatelyreportedto police.UponYoungappear-ing inLimaMunicipal Court on the charg-es, he entered a plea of notguilty at which time a bond of $1,000 cash bond was set andan order of protection wasalso issued against Young.At the time of news releaseYoung was still in custody atAllen County Jail.

Onlineauctionfor 55militaryvehicles
COLUMBUS (AP) —There was no way to knowwhether any of the 55 batteredmilitary surplus trucks parkedfive deep on a vast and muddyfield at the Defense SupplyCenter Columbus would actu-ally start.“Some of them start rightup. Some have dead batter-ies — especially in this coldweather,” said Jean Pryor, theGovernment Liquidation sitemanager at the military centeron E. Broad Street.Pryor was sitting in thecab of a 1970 Kaiser JeepXM813, a 5-ton cargo truck.She was surrounded by sevensimilar cargo trucks and 47AM General M915A1 trucktractors. All 55 will go onsale Thursday in one of thehundreds of online auctionsthat Government Liquidationholds every year.Bidding starts at $150on each truck — and endsTuesday at 5 p.m.Pryor hit the starter switch,and the Cummins six-cylinderengine — with 31,258 toughmilitary miles under its belts— whined loudly for severalseconds. Then, as clouds of black smoke billowed fromthe exhaust pipe, the enginesputtered and sprang to life,purring like the world’s loud-est — and angriest — tiger.“They’re all loud,” Pryorshouted over the din.Government Liquidationhas the Department of Defensecontract to auction off a widevariety of surplus items thathave been vetted to ensurethey are not weapons or con-tain sensitive technology.The company also turnsthousands more items intomillions of pounds of scrapmetal every year.“We get 10,000 items a week(for auction),” said Tom Burton,president of the company.Items regularly sold by thecompany through its onlineauctions include planes, trucksand boats.Government Liquidationrecently sold 30,000?poundsof used cooking oil from amilitary base in Alaska,1.4?million pounds of topsoilfrom a base in Washingtonand a tugboat.Burton estimated the55?trucks being stored at theDefense Supply Center willsell for between $2,000 and$10,000. There is no way of knowing, he added, if theycome from bases in theUnited States or abroad inEurope, Iraq and Afghanistan,although any of these loca-tions is possible.“About 95 percent of ourcustomers are small business-es,” Burton said. “They’repeople who don’t want to payfull price and know that theDepartment of Defense buyswith certain standards.”Andy Catsakis is a regularbidder — and winner — inthese online auctions.The Virginia farmer andmilitary-truck collector haspurchased about 20 trucksfrom Government Liquidation.Some he uses on his farmor in local parades as ridesfor groups such as the CubScouts; others he sells or usesfor the parts.The most Catsakis has paidis $3,000.“I have friends all overwho collect and sell mili-tary trucks,” he said, addingthese collectors have theirown international organiza-tions: the Military VehiclesPreservation Association andSteel Soldiers.
Air Force researchstudies trustworthiness
DAYTON (AP) — TheAir Force is trying to deter-mine whether blood samplescan be used to measure trustin a million-dollar researchproject at Wright-PattersonAir Force Base in westernOhio.Research psychologistJames Christensen tells theDayton Daily News the effortisn’t aimed at building a “trust-o-meter.” But he says findinga way to objectively measuretrustworthiness could help inassigning workers to sensitive jobs or missions.Study participants gothrough set scenarios witha trusted partner and thenwith a stranger and are test-ed on keeping a secret. Theresearchers monitor the par-ticipants’ heart and brainactivity and blood levels of the hormone oxytocin, whichhas been associated withtrustworthiness.Some scientists are skep-tical about whether that’s areliable indicator because itcan be affected by other fac-tors.
