Elida goingback to votersin November
BY STACY TAFFstaff@delphosherald.com
ELIDA — On Nov. 6,voters of the Elida SchoolDistrict will face a new levywhich the superintendent,treasurer and board of educa-tion members agree is neces-sary to make up for dramaticlosses in state funding.With property taxesdeemed inequitable, Elidawill seek a 5-year, 0.75-per-cent earned-income tax. Itwill generate the $2,059,908per year the district feels isnecessary to cover currentexpenses.“There are very few busi-nesses out there, whether theybe big businesses or smallprivate business, that can beexpected to operate on thesame funding levels they didback in 2003,” Treasurer JoelParker said. “We’re oper-ating at the same level wedid in 2003 and it’s quicklyapproaching 2013. Our twomain issues with state aid isthere’s no inflationary growthand it’s shrinking. The declin-ing revenue, going back to2003 levels, this is what weneed to keep talking about aswe move closer to fall.”If the levy fails,Superintendent Don Digliasays cuts will have to be madeto make up for the loss. Thiswill further strip the districtof programming.“We’ve been doing ourdue diligence, trying to be asefficient as we can,” he said.“We’ve made reductions instaffing and programmingin every building and we’vedone it to the point wherethere’s nothing left. This yearwe had to eliminate a programthat has gained us nationalrecognition and gotten us aninvitation to the White House.Failure of this levy wouldcause cuts that would affectevery student in every build-ing. This is significant.”The proposed earned-income tax will not affectretired individuals or thoserelying on pensions.During the meeting, theboard accepted the followingresignations: Kelly Yarnell,elementary teacher, effectiveAug. 31; and Max Clement,bus driver, effective Aug. 17,2010.The following personnelwere approved for employ-ment, effective Aug. 24:Certified- Nicole Benroth(part-time physical education/health teacher and facilitatorof Odysseyware for remedialcredit), Elise Jenkins (middleschool math teacher); Non-certified - Charisse Hittle (ElidaElementary cafeteria), EricaMoening (Elida Elementarycafeteria); Summer Employee- Cody Smith.The following wereapproved for supplementalemployment: Girls basketball- Traci Sneary (junior varsity

Drought has expertswaiving red flags
BY MIKE FORDmford@delphosherald.com
VAN WERT — Havingadvised municipalities andtownships to issue burn bans,Emergency ManagementDirector Rick McCoy iswaving a red flag as hot, dryweather continues.“It’s dry — it’s just notgood at all. This week is thestart of our scorching weath-er,” McCoy said. “When welook at past years that had areally mild winter going into adry spring, in those years, wesaw a lot of 100-degree daysin summer. I think that’s whatwe’re looking at this year —very little precipitation andvery hot temperatures. We’llset a lot of records this year.”To date, this spring hasbeen the driest on record sur-passing the droughts of 1934and 1941 and even in recentmemory 1988.“The difference between1988 and this year was thefact that the 1988 spring wasalready in a drought before itbegan. This year, there wereabundant rains over the win-ter so our drought didn’t startuntil rains began to shut off.Overall this has been thedriest spring ever,” McCoysaid.Ohio State UniversityExtension Educator Dr. CurtisYoung says this would threat-en yields from the fields.“The weather right nowis a concern because whenwe get into drought condi-tions like this, it could impactoverall yield potential. Witheach passing day of little or norain, the severity of the lackof water gets more intense,”Young said.Drought conditions meansome may need to re-evaluatetheir habits and start recy-cling.“We need people to reallyuse caution in what they’redoing out there with their burn-ing. People have burnt forever— if they would recycle, wecould resolve the issue butsome of the population doesn’trecycle at all. If we should putout a county-wide burn ban,that means all trash fires willneed to cease,” McCoy said.The biggest threat in agri-culture is corn. Young saidsoybean plants are more ableto weather the heat but corn isat risk right now.“The plants are establish-ing their ears, the number of rows of kernels and how manykernels might develop. Those

Village moving forward with home plots
OTTOVILLE — Duringits regular monthly meetingMonday, village council hereapproved a resolution to pro-ceed with a new housing addi-tion that expands the village.Mayor Ron Miller said theBendele family added 15 1/2acres and put in a subdivisionfor six new houses. EngineerGreg Bockrath reported tothe group on lining up utili-ties and plots for two homes.Miller said there is a chancefor four more.In addition to addingnew homes, the village isalso addressing some streetissues.“We’re looking at a crack-filling outfit to fill cracks inour roads. Out on ProgressiveDrive, the road is breaking upand needs repaved, so we’reseeking bids,” Miller said.A camera showed cracksin a sewer line on BentleyStreet, so that was replacedbut more problems were cre-ated that also needed fixed.“When that line wasreplaced, when the guys wereworking on it, there was awater main break that wasreplaced. There was anotherone on Augaize Street, whichis where we’re looking ata repaving project, so we’relooking for money. We’relooking for grants and loansto get that done. We want toredo the street, storm sewer,water line and curbs. We’dtake out the street and put inwhole new sewer line, wholenew water line, whole newcurbs and put the paving backin,” Miller concluded.

DAYTON — A pair of savvy graduate engineeringstudents at the University of Dayton have caught the eye of the U.S. Department of Energywith innovative software thatwill help homeowners withsolar systems conserve energyand save big bucks on theirelectricity bills.Mithun MohanNagabhairava, a softwaredeveloper in the renewableand clean energy program,and mechanical engineerDustin Pohlman won the“Popular Choice” secondprize — and $4,000 — in theU.S. Department of Energy’sfirst “Apps for Energy” com-petition. They’ll travel toWashington, D.C., later thissummer to demo the app toDOE representatives and util-ity companies.The app is designed forhomeowners with solar pho-tovoltaic (PV) systems.Families can save up to athird on their electricity billsas demand and time-of-daypricing become more preva-lent, the engineering studentsestimate.In all, the DOE doled out$100,000 in cash prizes inthe contest, which attracted57 entries. The proposed appscovered everything from pricecalculations for plug-in carsto the University of Daytonapp that allows consumers tomeasure their home’s elec-tricity usage to determine theideal size of a solar paneland battery system. The bat-tery would be charged duringthe daytime, with a controllerreleasing the stored energyduring peak times.“We were kind of surprised,but thought we might end up inthe top five given the respons-es we had been getting frompeople,” said Nagabhairava,who worked as a softwaredeveloper in California and hisnative India before joining theUniversity of Dayton’s newrenewable and clean energyprogram. “After we submit-ted our idea in the contest, westarted getting calls from solarcompanies, including one fromSweden.”In an “American Idol”twist, the University of Dayton team captured sec-ond place through an onlinecontest. Their entry attractedaround 3,500 votes, primarilythrough Facebook and Twitter— and mostly from peoplethey didn’t know.Under the contest criteria,developers were asked to cre-ate mobile and web applica-tions that will help consumerssave money by making themost of their “Green Button”electricity usage data. Spurredby the federal government,this is an industry-led initia-tive that provides customerswith the ability to downloadtheir energy use — as oftenas every 15 minutes, in somecases — and make moreinformed energy decisions.As part of the initiative,utility companies in Californiaand Texas have alreadyinstalled “smart meters”that record consumption of electricity at intervals of anhour or less and wirelesslysend the information to util-ity companies. Nagabhairavaand Pohlman used energydata from a home in Berkeley,Calif., to test what they’recalling an “innovative solardemand response” tool. Theyestimate the state’s morethan 114,000 homeownerswith solar installations couldreduce peak electricity con-sumption by 80,000 kilowattsper day through the use of their software package.Nagabhairava, a nativeof Vijayawada in south-ern India, and Pohlman, of Delphos, Ohio, teamed on theproject in May, brainstorm-ing ideas between classes,final exams and their workin the University of Dayton’sIndustrial Assessment Center.Here, they conduct free ener-gy audits for mid-sized manu-facturing companies in Ohioand parts of Kentucky andIndiana.Nagabhairava is turn-ing their software tool into afree web application. In thefuture, he envisions integrat-ing weather forecasts into thetool to optimize the use of batteries in the system. Underthe concept, charge in the bat-teries can be held back fromuse on a day-to-day basis,only kicking in during peakdemand times like extremelyhot days.“We think this eventu-ally could be rolled out toevery house in the country,”Pohlman said. “If we can pro-vide this kind of informationto consumers, it could incen-tivize the use of solar PVsystems. When you have thiskind of detailed information,you realize, ‘Man, this is whatelectricity is costing me everyhour of the day.’”Nagabhairava also wouldlike to introduce the conceptto utilities and homeowners inIndia. “This would definite-ly help back in India whereutilities are facing a hard timekeeping up with the growingenergy demands of the coun-try,” he said.Developing and promotingalternative forms of energyis a strategic focus for theUniversity of Dayton, whichhas teamed with Wright StateUniversity, Central StateUniversity and the Air ForceInstitute of Technology tooffer the only renewable andclean energy graduate pro-gram in the state.On campus, researchers areconducting millions of dollarsin sponsored research annu-ally in virtually all areas of energy — wind energy, fuelcells/batteries, algae, coal-to-liquid fuels and other clean,alternative energy research.In addition, the University of Dayton Research Institute isleading synthetic fuel effortsat a one-of-a-kind U.S. AirForce facility that convertsbiomass and other feedstockinto jet fuel.Dustin is the son of Keithand Mary Lou Pohlman of Delphos.
