DELPHOS—As anAssociate Veterinarian atDelphos Animal Hospital, Dr.April Shattuck has the perfectplatform to nurture her love of animals. Whether she’s deal-ing with a kitten or a pot-bellypig, Shattuck enjoys caring forher patients and teaching cli-ents to care for them as well.“I went to Bowling GreenUniversity for my undergrad-uate work and I started outinterested in marine biology,”she said. “I really wanted towork with animals and thatsounded interesting. I did moreresearch and realized that itwasn’t going to be as reward-ing as I thought, so I startedshadowing at Midway AnimalHospital and ended up switch-ing to Veterinary Medicine.It’s very rewarding.”Having grown up in Lima,Shattuck says the opening atDelphos Animal Hospital wasa perfect fit.“I had shadowed with Dr.John and Dr. Bonnie, so Iwas familiar with them and Ireally liked them and the waythey cared for animals,” shesaid. “I’m from Lima origi-nally so this really worked outfor me.”“Before I came here in2005, I worked my first year atCelina Animal Hospital,” sheadded. “I worked with bothlarge and small animals. Withlarge animals it can be hard onthe body, as Dr. John will tellyou. I still occasionally pitchin here with the large animalsif he needs help or is out of theoffice. I work more with petslike cats and dogs. Every oncein a while I’ll get a rabbit. I’veeven done surgery on a rat.”On a typical day, Shattuckperforms the same tasks onecould expect from any doctorin human or animal care.“In the morning I’m usu-ally doing surgeries or doingoutpatient work. I do the typi-cal spays, neuters and den-tal cleaning,” she said. “I dogrowth removals, too, andsometimes we deal with emer-gencies. The rest of the dayI’m seeing outpatients.”Treating other people’s petsall day and being a pet ownerherself, Shattuck knows justhow difficult it is to lose ananimal that has become partof the family.“The most difficult part of the job is when a client hasto say goodbye to a pet,” shesaid. “Pets are a part of ourfamilies and it can be reallyhard to say goodbye. We justtry to do whatever we can tomake it easier on them.”Shattuck says the bestaspect of being a veterinar-ian is getting to teach peoplehow to better care for theiranimals.“I really love it when aclient has left and I feel asthough they’ve learned some-thing or if they leave feelinglike they’ve done a good thingby bringing their pet in here,”she said. “I like teaching themsomething helpful about car-ing for their pet. I always say,‘you don’t know what youdon’t know’.”Shattuck says that in orderto be a successful veterinarian,you need to be able to connectwith people as well.“You have to love workingwith people, not just animals.Pets don’t just walk in on theirown,” she said. “You have tolove animals, too. This is acareer and it’s something youhave to be passionate aboutand something you have tolove. I can’t imagine doinganything else.”Shattuck lives in Elida withher husband Bob and their twodaughters, Taylor and Payton.They have two cats, Smokeyand Bandit, and one dog, aPomeranian named Corky.

VAN WERT — The twomen running to fill the com-missioner seat being vacated byClaire Dudgeon are Sheriff StanOwens and Denzil “Denny”Wortman. Because they areboth Republicans, the winnerwill be the next commissionerunless an independent candi-date files by March 5.Owens, 58, says he has beenrunning a budget for the 23years hehas beenin officeand thisis whatmostqualifieshim forthe posi-tions he’sseeking.“I’min my24th yearas sher-iff, having been a deputy anddetective for 11 years before Iran for sheriff and was elected.As sheriff, I’ve learned countygovernment and its operations.I’ve had 24 years of educa-tion with that and I’ve had 24years of budget-management,”he said.“Here at the sheriff’s office,the budget is a continuousoperation. We operate four in athird year every calendar yearto other operations because weoperate 8,760 hours in a calen-dar year as opposed to 2,000hours. Between our differentoperations such as corrections,road patrols and communica-tions, my budget managementexperience is from running a24-hour operation.”In addition, the sheriff alsoruns a farm.“I’ve also been farming formore than 35 years; managingmoney to maintain a farmingoperation and all the require-ments there. So, between thetwo, I’ve had a lot of mon-ey-managing experience,” hesaid.The husband of Susan andfather of three also points to hisfiscally-conservative values.“What I bring to the table,alongwith myexperi-ence, isthat I’ma con-serva-tive withconser-vativevaluesand I’ma com-monsense guy.I believe in looking at thewhole picture to try to be fairto all involved,” he said. “I’ma strong supporter of economicdevelopment. When thingsstart to pick up and get betteracross the country, we need tocompete for new businesses toget job growth going here inVan Wert County.”Wortman, 61, is a lifelongfarmer who worked more than30 years in manufacturing. Hisgoal is to bring jobs to VanWert County.“I will being my experienceand expertise to the position of county commissioner, where Iwill serve in the best interestof the residents of Van WertCounty.

Glenn fever returns 50years after historic flight
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.— John Glenn fever grippedCape Canaveral on Friday, just as it did half a centuryago when America was on theverge of launching its first maninto orbit.Hundreds of NASA work-ers jammed a space centerauditorium, three days beforethe 50th anniversary of Glenn’shistoric flight, to see and hearthe first American to circle theEarth. Then journalists got acrack at Glenn, ever patientat describing his momentousflight aboard Friendship 7 andthe decades since.The 90-year-old Glennwas joined at both events byScott Carpenter, 86, the onlyother survivor of the originalMercury 7 astronauts, as theweekend of anniversary fes-tivities began.Glenn said he recollects theflight so often it seems like ittook place just a couple weeksago. He and Carpenter visitedtheir old launch pad, Complex14; it was from the blockhousethere that Carpenter called out“Godspeed John Glenn” beforethe rocket ignited.The national attention thenwas “almost unbelievable,”Glenn said, adding that he and hiscolleagues learned to live with theacclaim “or tried to anyway.”Glenn’s Friendship 7 cap-sule circled Earth three timeson Feb. 20, 1962. Carpenterfollowed aboard Aurora 7 onMay 24, 1962.They were the third andfourth Americans to rocket intospace. Alan Shepard and GusGrissom flew short suborbitalmissions in 1961, the sameyear the Soviet Union launchedtwo cosmonauts into orbit onseparate shots.The Cold War was raging,and America was desperate toeven the score. Glenn couldhave died trying if the heatshield on his capsule was looseas flight controllers feared.But the protective shield wastight, and Glenn splashed downsafely.Glenn, a U.S. senator forOhio for 24 years, returned toorbit aboard shuttle Discoveryin 1998, becoming the world’soldest spaceman at age 77 andcementing his super-galacticstatus.“Flying in space at age 77,you’ve given me hope. I’ve gota few good years left, and I’mready,” Kennedy Space Centerdirector Robert Cabana, a for-mer shuttle commander, toldGlenn.Glenn recalled how theMercury astronauts traveledduring their training to CapeCanaveral to watch a missileblast off. It was a night launch,and the rocket blew apart overtheir heads.“That wasn’t a very goodconfidence-builder for our firsttrip to the cape,” Glenn said.Improvements were made, andGlenn said he gained confi-dence in his Mercury-Atlasrocket, a converted nuclearmissile. Otherwise, he saidhe would not have climbedaboard.Glenn and his wife, Annie,who turned 92 on Friday, wereon hand Thursday eveningfor the attempted liftoff of thenewest of the Atlas rockets, anunmanned booster that NASAcontractors hope one day willcarry astronauts. Windy weath-er forced a scrub of the Navysatellite launch.“Scrub! Welcome to thespace program,” Glenn said atthe news conference held in theold Mercury Mission Control,now located at the KennedySpace Center Visitor Complex.“Not anything brand new tome.” Lousy weather spoiledFriday night’s launch attemptas well.

This column originally ran in March 2011. I tweaked it a little but not a lot. How sad.
Here it is halfway through Februaryalready.There are still several things that wenton my to-do list earlier in the year yet to bechecked off.As I write this, I am surrounded by paper.It’s on my left, on my right, all around me.Arrrg!I cleared out a file drawer last January andhad the best intentions of cleaning up somebut now all I see are bigger piles of agendasand the like. Yikes! I better get busy.Time just seems to slip away. I start work-ing on something and I tell myself I’ll get tothe filing when I’m done and then somethingelse comes up and then the phone rings andthen someone asks me a question and the nextthing I know, I’m jetting out the door and itdidn’t get done.It’s probably going to take a Saturday orSunday afternoon to accomplish this task. I’ll just pencil that right in.I’ve read somewhere we should alwayswrite down our goals for the next day andprioritize them so the most important thingsget done first. Well, my messy desk doesn’tseem to make it anywhere near the top of that list.Perhaps I don’t think it’s important enoughbut it really needs done. Maybe I’ll have afew minutes after I get this column done totuck a few things away in a file. Then again,probably not.Let’s check that list for Monday. Hmmm. Idon’t believe I see filing on there at all. Howodd. It needs done. Why isn’t it on the list?Could be that it is written in disappearingink.Things seem to go that way at home, too.For example: I have a drawer at home withold paid bills, letters, cards, etc., that I havebeen meaning to clean out so it can be usedfor something else. It needs done and I wouldbenefit from the space. Still, it never showsup on a list. I just keep stuffing in more andmore until I can hear pieces fluttering downthe back of the dresser when the drawer isopened and closed.There was a sign on my mother’s desk atthe Marathon station and subsequently at thegarage on Pierce Street. It read, “Don’t touchmy mess! I know where everything is.”For the most part, the same is true of mydesk at work. I can usually lay my hands onsomething in pretty short order. Sometimes,not so much.Hey. Where did that list go? Uh oh. I thinkI wrote it on disappearing paper!
