Vancrest ‘Best of Best’ for third year
Information submitted
VAN WERT — Anapproaching weather systemcould mean the beginning of severe storm season in north-west Ohio.“There is the possibilityof a big severe weather out-break on Friday and VanWert County could be inthe middle of it,” Van WertCounty office of HomelandSecurity and EmergencyManagement Director RickMcCoy said.He went on to say themain dangers for this arealate Friday afternoon will bedamaging winds and possibleisolated tornadoes.The Storm PredictionCenter is forecasting a largesevere outbreak stretchingfrom Alabama to Michiganwhich could be more signifi-cant than the deadly outbreakon Tuesday in Missouri andIllinois.According to McCoy,abundant moisture will betransported into the OhioValley from the Gulf of Mexico. The ingredients forthe storms are a warm frontwhich will bring tempera-tures back into the middle60s, along with a strong jetstream, an approaching coldfront and a dynamic lowpressure system. The biggestthreat for supercell stormswith large, long-lived torna-does will likely be focusedon southern Indiana, southernOhio and northern Kentucky,while this area may have todeal with isolated twisters inthe late afternoon hours untilsunset.It is an early beginningto the severe storm seasondue to the La Niña weatherpattern this year. Last year,Van Wert experienced fourspring tornadoes beginningin April, which was also a LaNiña spring.The difference in the tim-ing is due to last year’s hardwinter, which caused storm-formation to be delayed untilApril when warmer weatherbegan. This year follows avery mild winter which willbring the severe weather ear-lier. McCoy feels this spellstrouble going through themonth of March because of warm ups followed by coldair masses moving in fromCanada which in turn causesstrong storms to develop.McCoy noted that look-ing at historical data from1965 and 1974, both of thosesprings followed mild win-ters. A big Palm Sunday tor-nado outbreak hit in 1965,while an F-5 tornado hitXenia in 1974.With these similarities inmind, McCoy warned localresidents to take Friday’ssevere weather threat seri-ously along with any futureearly spring storms thatdevelop. He cautioned peopleto review weather drills andplans and to have a weatherradio available for NationalWeather Service warn-ings, and statements madeby local media outlets andthe Van Wert EmergencyManagement frequency at155.805 on a scanner.McCoy also remindedthe public that in the eventhe activates the local sirensystems, they will soundfor only the portions of thecounty which are affected bya tornadoes path and that thesirens are not used for an “allclear” signal.

DELPHOS — For thethird consecutive year, thelocal long-term care facilityhas been deemed among thebest nursing homes in thecountry.Vancrest HealthcareCenter of Delphos has beenranked in U.S. News andWorld Report’s ‘Best of theBest’ nursing homes in Ohio.Life Enrichment CoordinatorAmber Bidlack, LSW, ADC,says being well-regarded bystate evaluators is typical atVancrest.“We’ve been ranked in thisfor three consecutive yearsand this is quite an honor forus. It’s all about the care; wefocus on the residents andwe have excellent staff. Ourstate survey last year foundus deficiency-free in qualityof care. They take surveysonce a year and we’ve alwayshad good surveys. It showswe’re doing something right,here,” she said. “Every otheryear, the state takes a family-satisfaction survey and then,the next year, they take aresident-satisfaction survey.Every year, they come intoour building and inspect.They’re very thorough andthey aren’t able to find anyproblems with us. We prideourselves on quality care andwe pride ourselves on beingamong the best of the best.”She says the evaluationdoesn’t rank the whole nation,but each state separately.“The government looks atdifferent aspects of the nurs-ing home and chooses the topones in each state. It’s meantto be a helpful thing for thefamilies to know what the topnursing homes are and whythey’re ranked so highly,”Bidlack said.Vancrest of Delphosreceived five of five stars onthe following criteria:Overall — From ratingsin health inspections, nursestaffing, and measures of medical-care quality;Health Inspections — Howwell this home met healthand safety standards for foodpreparation and other nursing-home activities in the latestthree state inspections. Suchinspections are conducted atleast every 15 months;Quality Measures —Percentages of residents whogot recommended care, suchas flu vaccinations, and per-centages of residents whohad pain, bedsores, urinarytract infections, and othercare-related problems.Vancrest got 3 out of 5 stars on Nurse Staffing.Administrator CindyLangenkamp said that isbecause the criteria is tocompare the number of regis-tered nurses alone to the stateand national averages. Sheexplained that many facilitieshave a lot of registered nurs-es working in management,whereas Vancrest has nurseswith other types of licensureon hand. She said the stateaverage is one RN to 15 resi-dents but Vancrest has abouthalf that, with approximately6-8 residents for each per-son licensed for direct patientcontact across the facility,where people come and goon any given day, includingthe rehabilitation wing.

Officials to widen probe into Ohio adoptive father
By ANN SANNERand DAN SEWELLAssociated Press
TROY — Federal and locallaw enforcement officials saidthey’re widening the investi-gation into child sexual exploi-tation allegations against anadoptive father charged withraping three boys in his care.Officials said the fatherhired one of the boys, a10-year-old, out for sex, pros-tituting him. The father andtwo other men remained in jail Thursday on rape charges.The father’s name is beingwithheld by The AssociatedPress to protect the children’sidentities.The boy shook whenasked about being prostitut-ed to two men, according topolice. They said the childwas fearful of talking becausehe didn’t want to be takenfrom his home or separatedfrom his new siblings.Troy police said theyimpounded the father’s truckand seized four laptops fromthe home and a video cameraand two wooden paddles fromthe master bedroom. The fatherworked out of his home as aninsurance claims adjuster.School officials said theman had recently withdrawnthe three adopted childrenfrom school, saying he wouldhome school them. A neigh-bor said he had no idea any-thing lurid might be going onin the home.“You don’t know whatgoes on inside people’shomes,” said neighbor EdRogers, who had lived acrossthe street from the man thepast five years in a neighbor-hood lined with single-storyranch homes, typical in thisworking class city of 25,000people about 20 miles north of Dayton. “I’ll never look at thathouse the same way again. I’ll just look at it with sickness.”The man at the center of the investigation is a longtimeTroy resident who had beeninvolved in a local youth bas-ketball program. Police Capt.Chris Anderson said police sofar haven’t found any signsof any inappropriate behaviorwith other children, even ascalls poured in from worriedparents.

Iran’s top leader urgeshigh turnout in elections
By ALI AKBAR DAREINIAssociated Press
TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’ssupreme leader urged Iraniansto vote in large numbers as thecountry held parliamentaryelections today, saying a highturnout would send a strongmessage to the enemies of thenation in the nuclear standoff with the West.The balloting for the290-member parliament isthe first major voting sincethe disputed re-electionof President MahmoudAhmadinejad in June 2009and the mass protests andcrackdowns that followed.It is unlikely to changeIran’s course over major pol-icies — including its con-troversial nuclear program— regardless of who wins,but it may shape the politicallandscape for a successor toAhmadinejad in 2013.And with the oppositioneffectively crushed, the elec-tions amount to a popularitycontest between conservativesupporters of Supreme LeaderAyatollah Ali Khameneiand their rivals who backAhmadinejad.Khamenei, who has finalsay on all state matters inIran, said it was a “duty anda right” for every eligibleIranian to vote, especiallynow that the “Iranian nationis at a more sensitive period”amid the confrontation withthe West.“Because of the controver-sies over Iran and increasedverbal threats; the more peo-ple come to the polling sta-tions, the better for the coun-try,” Khamenei said aftercasting his ballot in Tehranearly today.“The higher the turnout,the better for the future,prestige and security of ourcountry,” he added. “Thevote always carries a mes-sage for our friends and ourenemies.”A high turnout will beseen as a major boost forIran’s ruling Islamic system,showing popular support andallowing it to stand firm inits refusal to halt uraniumenrichment. The West sus-pects Iran’s program is gearedtoward making nuclear weap-ons, a charge Tehran denies,insisting it’s for peaceful pur-poses only, such as energyproduction.Iranian state TV went livefrom several polling stationsin Tehran and the provinces,showing long lines of peoplewaiting to vote, followed by acommentary saying the lineswere a “disappointment to thebad-wishers.”It claimed the U.S. and itsallies were hoping for a lowturnout that would show divi-sions and a weakened Islamictheocracy, making it easierfor the West to pressure Iranover the nuclear issue. TheTV headlines proclaimed theelections as a day of “nationalsolidarity” and a “rebirth of the nation.”More than 48 millionIranians are eligible to vote atthe nearly 47,000 polling sta-tions across the nation.In the absence of majorreformist parties, whichwere kicked off the politi-cal stage over the 2009 post-election turmoil, today’s voteis seen as a political battle-ground for competing con-servative factions supportingKhamenei and those backingAhmadinejad.The two groups were onceunited but turned againsteach other after crushingreformists in the upheavalsthat followed Ahmadinejad’sdisputed re-election. Thesplit dates back to last year,when many conservativesturned into strong critics of Ahmadinejad after he daredchallenge Khamenei overthe choice of intelligencechief in April and other pol-icies.
