Joseph takes Grand and Reserve Grand Champion with goats
BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — For the third consecutive year, Megan Joseph took home one of the top prizes in the Born and Raised Goat competition of the Allen County Fair. This year, she was named Reserve Grand Champion after taking Grand Champion the last two years. Joseph isn’t too disappointed — this is also the first year she won Grand Champion in the Market Goat competition. “Last year I was close to

LIMA — Troy Elwer of Delphos took Grand Champion during the Jr. Fair Market Hog Show Wednesday at the Allen County Fair, a win he attributes to sticking with methods that work. “I don’t think I really did anything better or different this year; I did the same things I did when I won back in 2009,” Elwer said. TODAY “I treat all my pigs the same; it’s Football: Lima just that this pig did better.” Central Catholic at St. Elwer, who will be a seventhJohn’s, 7:30 p.m. grader at St. John’s this year, says Boys Soccer: Ottoville raising hogs keeps him busy. at Bryan, 1 p.m.; Van “We spend probably 35-40 Buren at Kalida, 1 p.m.; Spencerville/Elida and Fort hours a week, just feeding, rinsJennings/Bluffton at Elida ing and working with them.

of showing; just spending time with the pigs,” he said. “I showed two at the Ohio State Fair this year and two at the county fair. I didn’t show any other animals this year; just pigs. I’m not sure about next year, right now we’re just thinking about what we want to do.” Before he heads to the fair again, Elwer hopes to make some improvements to his techniques. “I would like to improve in showmanship; I’d like to win in my age group,” he said. “Right now, I’m at beginner level showmanship, so next year will be my first year at junior level. Elwer, who will turn 13 in September, keeps busy throughout the year with football, basketball and baseball. He is the son of Scott and Chrissy Elwer.

Redmond oldest person at fair Thursday
BY MIKE FORD mford@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — On any given day, Allen County Fair organizers bestow the notoriety of being the oldest person at the fair on the person deserving of the title. Wednesday, the honor went to Charlene Redmond of Delphos, who turned 100 earlier this year. With her full mental faculties and quick wit in tact, Redmond lives in the assisted living side of Vancrest Healthcare Center. For eight years, Activities Director Barb Brotherwood has taken her to the fair, figuring she would win. With three digits, she would not be denied this time. When asked how she felt about winning, she indicated it was better than one of the alternatives. “I guess it’s an honor,” she said. “I don’t feel any different than I ever did but I didn’t want to die, so I guess

Charlene Redmond I wanted to win.” “Then Lima went and took Born and raised in Lima, it away from us.

Reindel double champ at fair
BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 11 LIMA — This year’s Allen County Jr. Fair has been a good one for 19-year-old Austin Reindel, son of Mike and Karen Reindel of Delphos. In addition to snagging Reserve Grand Champion in the Market Hog Show, Reindel also won Champion of Champions Showmanship and second overall in showmanship with his steer. “I worked more on showmanship this year, getting the hog to walk with its head up and

just working on presentation,” he said. “It felt like that really helped me out with everything. I still need to do a lot of work on keeping his movements smoother. I’ve never won showmanship with hogs before now but I’ve won with steers and I think that gives me a bit of an edge.” The amount of hours it takes to care for the livestock Reindel shows is equivalent to the average full-time job. He says it would be a lot harder without the help of his family. See REINDEL, page 2

My summer
The nights are cooler and the sounds of a high school football game fill the air. It must be the fall. Well, not really but for all intents and purposes, summer is over. “What I did on my summer vacation” is a staple for a first assignment for school children everywhere. Little do they know, once they become adults, oftentimes summer vacation takes on a whole new meaning. I am pleased with what I accomplished this summer at home, as well as at work. As usual, the break from school brings a host of interesting things to cover for the newspaper. From the Firemen’s Convention to Relay to three county fairs, Fourth of July and Fort Jennings turning 200 thrown in the middle, there’s plenty to do. Once again, we were honored with hosting Murray’s granddaughter, Claire. A delightful 16-year-old, she brought a breath of fresh air to the newsroom when she graced us with her presence. She spent some time in each department and she even went out on assignment by herself. Her visit was too early for the fair this year. I was a little bummed. I like the fair so much and can’t get there and she doesn’t have her fair shoes yet. Last year was Claire’s first ever trip to a county fair. I know it’s hard to imagine when they are a part of your life that some people have never experienced one. Nonetheless, she can check off her annual visit to Delphos. One thing I can mark off my list is surviving what I have dubbed “The 2012 Blackout.” I won’t soon forget those 4 1/2 days that were hot as h-e-double hockey sticks. I know, I know, some were without power for a lot lon-

For The Record vacation ... Joseph

ger than I was but it doesn’t mean I can’t be snarky at the thought of doing it again. It was pretty crappy. I also got to spend some quality time with Cameron and friends. He’s doing well and started his fall classes this week. He’s very busy and has to remind me that I can also call him. I am super excited about Labor Day weekend — the last weekend of summer. Just happens to be my birthday weekend. What? You say. Please, not gifts. I have everything I need. Really. I have a pretty good date for a birthday. It’s kind of a last hurrah of summer and then a segue way into my favorite season — fall. I can almost hear the crunch of the leaves and smell the first frost. Editor’s note: So now I want to know what you guys did this summer. Send pictures of your summer activities to nspencer@delphosherald.com or drop them off at the office. Make sure you identify the people in the photos, what they are doing and where they are doing it. We’ll put them in the paper and you’ll have another souvenir or memory of your summer.

I had a good goat to start with and all of that plays a role too.” This year, Joseph has two market goats, three breeding projects and four kids at the fair. She tries to spend time working with them every day. “I work with my goats about 10 hours a week — probably about an hour and a half a day — with feeding them and walking them. Exercise is a big thing. I worked on the feed a lot this year, concentrating on how much protein they get. Another thing I did different this year is I worked with the breeding stock a lot better.” Last year was the first year the St. John’s High School junior tried out for fair royalty. She was named Jr. Fair Goat Queen. “I wanted to try out for Jr. Fair Queen this year but I wasn’t old enough, so I’ll try next year,” she said.


The daughter of Norm and Kim Elwer usually shows dogs at the fair as well. “I recently had to give that up,” she said. “It was just too much with all of the other activities I have going on.” In addition to her fair activities, Joseph keeps busy with track and cross country training. Joseph loves working with her goats, but the things she loves most about showing them at the fair are the lessons and knowledge that come with the experience. “My favorite thing is just coming out and showing; doing my best whether I win or lose,” she said. “I love getting into that competition and hearing what the judge says and taking that into the next year.” “I really owe a thank-you to my parents and my advisor,” Joseph added. “They’ve helped me so much and if they hadn’t been there for me I wouldn’t have accomplished any of this.” opportunities he’s enjoyed and the help given by his father. “I really feel I need to thank my dad, not just for all of the work he does but for everything he’s sacrificed to make showing possible for us kids. He does a lot,” he said.

---------Palestine to get electrification French and British engineers have completed a project which it is hoped will be put in place very soon for the electrification of Palestine by causing the waters of the Eastern Mediterranean to flow over a 250-foot ridge bordering the coast thence through a canal cut out of solid rock, whence the waters would hurl down in an almost sheer drop into Lake Tiberius and the Dead Sea, more than a one thousand feet drop. It is estimated that the total electric energy developed would be sufficient for Palestine, Syria, Asiatic Turkey and Egypt. The total cost is placed at about $75,000,000. Able scientists have calculated the net energy at 420,000 H.P. Delphos Herald, Sept. 8, 1926 ---------Delphos fans plan to see Babe Ruth play A number of Delphos baseball fans are planning to go to Lima Friday to see the great “Bambino” play ball. Lima and Celina are to play the deciding series which was evened out Sunday when Celina won by a score of 1 to 0. In addition to Ruth, the Lima club will have such stars as Billy Southworth, St. Louis outfielder; Frank Gilhooley and Micky Heath of the Toronto minor league champions, and Pinke Pitting, late of the Louisville club and now the property of the Cincinnati Reds in its lineup. With Celina will be Bruno Betzel, Louisville infielder; Tavener of the Detroit Tigers and Ty Freigau of the Cubs, besides other league luminaries. Delphos Herald, Oct. 13, 1926 ---------Two women shoplifters The local police have identified two women, who, it is alleged, were guilty of shoplifting in Delphos a few days back. The two visited several local stores among them the Lange Dry Goods store, the Remlinger Drug Store and the Neuer 5 and 10 cent store. In the last named place, it is claimed, one of the women was seen by Miss Theresa Neuer taking some merchandise and putting it into a large bag which she was carrying. Miss Neuer accused her of stealing and took hold of the bag. The woman ran and the handle of the bag, tearing loose, it was left behind. In the bag were found silk remnants and a table scarf, stolen from the A.H. Lange store; a vanity case and powder puff from the Remlinger store and stockings and two silver table mats from the Neuer store. The women, the police state, have agreed to come in and make settlement. Their names are not being announced and it is likely that no arrests will be made. Miss Neuer secured the license number of a car in which the two women left the city. Delphos Herald, Oct. 13, 1926 ---------Hog cholera raging near Delphos Hog cholera is still playing havoc with hogs in this vicinity. The disease continues to be doing most damage southeast of the city. One man in that territory lost forty hogs and others are reporting heavy losses. Many of the farmers are having their hogs inoculated to prevent them from taking the disease. Delphos Herald, Oct. 13, 1926 ---------Finds story of Columbus’ Last trip to America New Orleans, La. – A full account of Christopher Columbus’ last voyage, a roster of his crews, their salaries and all incidents of their trip, were said by Dr. Rudolph Schuler, archeologist, to be contained in manuscripts brought here by him from Central America. Dr. Schuler, who for the last 27 years had conducted archeological and linguistic research in Central America, same here with the view of having Tulane university publish the results of his years of labor. The scientist said he unearthed unpublished accounts of Columbus’ last voyage to America, together with a history of the survivors of the expedition, while delving into ancient Central America and Spanish archives. Delphos Herald, Sept. 22, 1926 ---------Two cooks in wreck near Delphos Two men believed to be of the genus “yegg” are in the Van Wert County Hospital at the present time and awaiting transfer to jail as the result of an accident, shortly before midnight on the Lincoln Highway at the bridge over the second creek west of Delphos. An auto said to have been stolen, was wrecked. The men gave their names as Casey Mitchell and Leo Armstrong, both of Ft. Wayne. The car, a Nash roadster, struck the concrete wall of the bridge and was reduced to a mass of wreckage. Mitchell was driving at the time and was caught under the steering wheel and was badly injured. His companion was asleep and also was injured. Passersby picked the men up and brought them to Delphos to a local physician. Two guns, a 45 automatic and a 32 automatic, were carried by the men and fuses, dynamite detonators and ear drum protectors used for protection during explosion, were found in the car. These awakened suspicion and the police were called. They, in town, notified Sheriff Johnson, of Van Wert County. By order of Mr. Wagoner, the men were removed to the Van Wert County Hospital in the Harter and Brenneman ambulance. Mitchel is about 22 years old and a married man.

change of heart by the intruders which caused them to depart without the loot has been partially explained. Upon reading the account of the attempt in the Herald Wednesday night, Merchants’ Policeman Art Kohn was reminded of the strange actions of some people in an automobile on West Second Street Tuesday night and the police are of the opinion that these were the guilty parties. While making the rounds on the night in question, Mr. Kohn noticed a machine with headlights burning, parked on the north side of Second Street, across from the MuellerChevrolet garage. As it was about 2 a.m. he considered this deserving of attention and crossed the street and walked behind the car. He then noticed that the near license plate was missing. He immediately called the night police from the city building. The people in the car noticed that they had attracted attention and, honking their horn sped away. The police started after the machine, which, in the meantime, had made several circuits in the vicinity of West Second and headed west on the Lincoln Highway. The police followed, but their machine was unable to match the speed of the fugitive car and they made their escape. Delphos Herald Sept. 30, 1926 ---------Greatly pleased with appearance of Delphos Administration for the city of Delphos and surprises at the great changes which have been wrought here were expressed by J.W. Berryman, St. Marys, upon occasion of a visit at the O.J. Brenneman home, 501 North Canal Street. Mr. Berryman was accompanied here by his wife who had never visited Delphos. Mr. Barryman had not been in this city for fiftysix years past. Needless to say, he found many changes. He was greatly pleased with the appearance of the city, commenting upon the prosperous appearance of the business district and admiring the beautiful residence streets. He also spoke of the excellent walks which have replaced the old board walks which he remembered, and found a great improvement in the streets. Delphos Herald Sept. 14, 1926 ---------G. & L. Boot Shop changes ownership A change in ownership of the G. & L. Boot Shop is announced, and it will be known as the Z. & L. Boot Shop. Jos. Zimmerle, Toledo, and Alex. Lindemann have purchased the store from N. C. Miller. The new owners intend to move the store into the Zimmerle building and will occupy the room which is now used by the Moorman & Myers grocery. This room will be completely remodeled, a new front will be installed, also a new steel ceiling and new shelving. When completed, it will be a modern shoe store in every respect. Mr. Zimmerle was born and reared in Delphos and has many friends here. For the past 15 years he has resided in Toledo. Mr. Lindeman has been in the shoe business in Delphos for many years past. Ten years ago, he and Mrs. Lena Goebel started this store in its present location. Six years ago, it was sold to Mr. Miller, who conducted it until now. Mr. Lindeman worked in the store also. Mr. Zimmerle plans to move his family to Delphos in the near future. Mr. Miller states he has not made any plans for the future. The Delphos Herald, Sept. 14, 1926 ---------New library hours A new schedule of hours for the Delphos Public Library was placed in effect Monday. This new schedule is expected to prove a convenience to the general public and especially to the pupils in the local schools. One of the most important changes is to have the library open during the noon hour. This will give the pupils, especially those residing outside the city, a place to spend the noon hour in a profitable manner. Delphos Herald, Sept. 14, 1926 ---------Itinerant uses “canned” heat An itinerant named James Marsell of Missouri was arrested on North Main Street Thursday night. He is said to have been imbibing on “canned heat”, when he was arrested. He said he ran out of liquor and took the canned heat. When released, he was given 10 minutes to leave city.

The Lutheran Church Life in small town America often revolved around church and school. This was true in the 1800s and is still true today. The German Lutherans were among the first to put their feet down in Jennings Township. The Raabe and Discher families arrived in 1833. They were accompanied by John Hedrick. This group from Hessia, Germany formed the nucleus of the Lutheran Church in Fort Jennings. A group of Catholic settlers arrived in 1834. These early Christians had an unusual arrangement. They built a log cabin in 1840, which they shared for worship services. The Catholics had Mass in the cabin on Sunday mornings and the Lutherans conducted services in the same building in the afternoon. During the week the log cabin served as the school for both groups. This log structure was located on the southeast side of the road next to the VonderEmbse property. This financial and administrative ecumenism was a result of their experiences in Northern Germany, where the religion of the people changed from Catholic to Protestant, according to the religion of the ruler of that area.

“History is the sum total of the things that could have been avoided.” —
Konrad Adenauer, German statesman (1876-1967)

This and

The St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church had the distinction of being one of the first churches established in Putnam County. The parish can trace it’s official origins back to 1840, when the two congregations shared the same building. Unlike most churches of that period the parish began with a full time resident pastor. Rev. Keniston made his home in the Odenweller House. Rev. Keniston served the parish well until he died of cholera in 1855, during the epidemic. The Raabe, Discher and Hedrick families formed the nucleus but others instrumental in forming the Lutheran Parish were Jacob Freund, Christoph Bleuthman, Johann H. Allemeier, Johann W. Allemeier, Christoph Ritzman, Frederick W. Allemeier, Henrietta Allemeier, and Adolph Allemeier. Itinerant pastors served the congregation following the death of Rev. Keniston. One of these traveling preachers, the Rev. Furham, drowned in the Miami-Erie Canal at Lock 13 while making his way from one parish location to another. The congregation outgrew the log cabin and better building materials came available,

One Year Ago • After the parade dust settled and the last corn hole bag thrown, the Marbletown Festival Committee found this year’s event raised more than $3,000. The festival has been the financial thrust behind improvements at Garfield Park off South Clay Street. New sidewalks, a shelterhouse and grill and a Garfield School marker have been added since the festival’s inception in 2006. 25 Years Ago — 1987 • Barbara Schmidt, business manager of The Delphos Herald, has retired after 25 years with the company, Thom Dunlavy, publisher, announced. Schmidt plans to do some volunteer work and some traveling, along with her hobbies of bowling and reading. • Girl Scout Troop 83 of Fort Jennings demonstrated lummi sticks at the Ohio State Fair in the Girl Scout booth. Lummi sticks are an American Indian rhythm game. Girl Scouts at the fair were Missy Utrup, Lisa Swick, D. D. Warnecke, Laura Wittler, Kate Schroeder, Melissa Maenle and Crystal Birkemeier. • St. John’s volleyball team returns six letter-winners and is preparing for a successful season. The letter-winners include setter Laura Shaw, hitters Cyndi Kortokrax, Bev Fisher, Elaine Wrasman, Vicki Kunz and Tina Kill. Other squad members include senior Amy Gerdeman, juniors Anne Hohman, Lisa Sadler, and Betsy Wittler and sophomores Nikki Wellman and Jill Schimmoeller. 50 Years Ago — 1962 • The newly crowned Miss United States Twirling champion, Jean Ann Roode, 19, of New Knoxville, will present two exhibitions at the annual Volunteer Firemen’s Homecoming and Picnic at Waterworks Park Sunday. She will appear at 4 p.m. and will do her fire baton routine at 8 p.m. She has made a number of appearances with the Delphos Eagles Band. She was with the band in Dayton when it won first place in the state contest, and she appeared with it at the national convention in Pittsburgh, Pa. • Dr. Burl G. Morris has been re-elected chairman of the board of the Ohio Federation of Chiropractic Organizations. This will be Dr. Morris’ second term as head of the state-wide group which was formed to coordinate and combine the activities of all Ohio Chiropractic organizations. As first chairman of the OFCO, Morris participated in the writing of the by-laws and constitution of the new group. • Sunday will be the red letter day for the golfing contingent of the Delphos Country Club as the tourney finals will be in full swing. Final play in the men’s championship flight will get under at 1 p.m. with John Yerick matched against Bud Miller. In the Men’s Flight A, Romus Brandehoff and Dr. Earl Morris will vie for the championship honors. Tom Honigford and Jerome Altenburger will play to decide Flight B championship. 75 Years Ago — 1937 • The first day and night of the Allen County Fair proved to be a big success according to all reports. A large number of fair visitors were on the streets during the afternoon and evening. The dance pavilion enjoyed the best opening night in the history of the Delphos Fair. Carl Dienstberger and his orchestra played for the dancing. • The local Auxiliary of the American Legion, yet in its infancy, has received a special merit citation for the fine work accomplished since its inception. Announcement to that effect was made at a regular meeting conducted in the Legion rooms. Mrs. Dell Cochensparger and Mrs. Frank Mundy, delegates to the state convention held recently at Columbus, presented their reports. • Rev. Julian A. Garrity, a native of Delphos, has been transferred from Chicago to Cincinnati, where he has been made pastor of St. Xavier’s Church, one of the oldest parishes in the city and located in the downtown district. Father Garrity is a cousin of Lilly and Henrietta Lang and Charles Lang, West Second Street, and of Otto

making a modest frame church possible. The new church was built on Lot 38, across from the hardware store. In 1940, the building was still standing at the home of Mrs. A. H. Raabe. According to printed St. John’s histories of 1940 and 1965: Rev. Alstetter and Rev. Fliener served both the Fort Jennings and Delphos congregations for a time. The influx of settlers had brought the Lutheran and Reformed into the community and no distinction had been made between these two forms of service. With the pastorate of Rev. Huebner, 1871 – 1876, these differences were emphasized and the Reformed withdrew to start their own congregation in Delphos. However many of the Reformed remained with the FortJennings Church, but it was necessary to combine the Fort Jennings and Delphos Lutheran Churches into a parish. Rev. Irick and Rev. Reitz served these two congregations until 1880. In the earlier years of the Lutheran Church, no records were kept. Therefore it is impossible to find the first persons baptized or buried when the church was first formed in 1840. The children were normally baptized very soon after birth. So it is highly possible that before the first structure was built, baptisms and services took place in the homes. In 1882 there were three recorded baptisms. They were the following: Johann Frederick Zenner, Anna Katharina Rudka and Maria Ellen Cumming. The first recorded deaths in the parish were in November 1883. There were three: Johanne Hettrich Jacob, Johann Friedrich Jenner and David Otto Jenner. Rev. Born began his pastorate in 1880 and both congregations had grown to a point where they needed the full service of a pastor. This was accomplished with the calling of Rev. Schnepel, who was the first full-time pastor in Fort Jennings since Rev. Keniston. This marked a turning point in the congregation as it began to expand. A parsonage was erected at a cost of 350.00. Mrs. Schnepel was well known for planting several fruit trees on the property. From 1902 until 1911 Rev. Bailey served the growing congregation during what was regarded as the golden era of the church. A new church was planned and built. The cornerstone was laid in 1903 and in 1904 the church was dedicated to the services of the Lord. The good people of the parish made many sacrifices of time, labor, talent and wisdom. This resulted in the church being debt free on the date of dedication. The church was adorned with beautiful memorial windows. This was followed by periods of trouble and crises. The following is a list of pastors who served the parish through the years that followed:
1912-1914 — Rev. Grim 1914 – 1917 — Rev. Florstedt 1917 – 1919 — Rev. Schulz 1920 - 1924 — Rev. Boerger 1924 – 1927 - Rev. Mollenkoph 1927 - 1931 — Rev. Shawkey 1932 – 1941 — Rev. Stroh 1941 – 1960 — Rev. Spithaler 1960 – 1962 — Rev. Florstedt & Rev. Heuer 1962 – 1964 — Rev. Oestreich

Churches in Fort Jennings
and banquets the Invocation was given by Father Miller, with Rev. Spithaler giving the Benediction. Rev. Cox served the parish for many years. He mentioned how the Raabe family had very strong ties to the church. In 1978 the church received extensive remodeling. The Raabe families contributed a substantial amount of money toward that project even though none of them live in the community anymore. The Chapel was named the Raabe Family Memorial Chapel. The church was restored inside and out with many businesses and individuals contributing money for the project. New carpets were installed, pews were refinished, the fellowship hall downstairs was remodeled with a modern kitchen, the church was re-wired, new plumbing installed and the building was sandblasted. James Shroyer, another man of the parish was pointed out by Rev. Cox: “At age 92 (in 1985), he is our elder statesman.” He told that Jim Shroyer was very active in Church and Civic obligations. Cox remarked how the Lutheran and Catholic congregations had a very good relationship in town. When the Raabe families lived in Fort Jennings the church was very important to them. When Howard and George were 11 and 13 years old, they acted as church janitors….getting up at 4 a.m. on Sunday mornings to fire up the furnace. The church took a few hours to heat up. Music was a very important part of the services. The organist who served the longest was Ellen Cummings who played until she was in her 80’s. Others who followed were Dorothy Huber, Ann Dienstberger, Cathy Hammons, Ann Klausing, Carl Wieging and Janice Freund. Special music was sung for Christmas, Lent and Easter. One musician told about a Service of Darkness that had a Lenten hymn for Good Friday that had 17 verses. One verse would be sung, one candle was then extinguished, and a short sermonette was given between each of the 27 verses. By the end of the extremely long service, which ended up totally dark, at least one person was always caught sleeping. Each year in September, a Homecoming was planned. It was a time when previous members returned to their home church in Fort Jennings to renew old friendships and have a fellowship day together. It was always a full church. A big carry-in dinner was always planned with special music. Clo Chandler reflected on the time around 1959. Several barbershop quartets came to sing. Kenny Raabe sang in one of them called, “The Applechords. It was great singing. The “American Lutheran Church Women”, previously known as the “Ladies Aid” and “The American Federation of Lutheran Church Women” was a vital part of the congregation. In the 1960’s this organization became the A.L.C.W. Those groups were avid fund-raisers as well as prayer warriors. This group held monthly meetings and regular bible study. Another breakthrough in Ecumenism came in the early 1970’s. It was not part of the women’s official organization, but several women felt a strong need to reach out and find a common ground to unlock and share their faith. At this time, Sister Paulette and Sister Jackie, who were in the St. Joseph’s Parish. Clo Chandler and Janice Freund, along with the Sisters, started an interfaith prayer group. They met in homes and did many activities together. It truly was being one in the Spirit. Rev. John Cox was the last pastor to serve the Fort Jennings Parish. He went on to serve at Christ Lutheran in Continental. The last person baptized in the parish, was Timothy Schlatman in July 1982. The last funeral officiated was Rachael Wannemacher. Some families associated with the Lutheran Church over the years were: Freund, Friend, Wreede, Hammonds, Schramm, Geckle, Chandler, Shroyer, Bilimek, Blockberger, Sarka, Peters, Allemeier, Leatherman, Ladd, Cuming, Persinger, Stirm, Dowler, Kortier, Raabe, Arn, Plasic, Kimmerle, Ratliff, Davis, Bluethmer and Adams. Paul Allemeier was the fifth generation of Allemeiers to attend the church. His ancestors were among the founders.

Student Pastors served for a short time period and Rev. Hare served in 1974. Rev. Cox was the pastor when St. John’s closed its doors. Rev. Mettermaier of St. Peter’s in Delphos assisted the Fort Jennings congregation during many of those years, especially between pastorates. In 1933 the church was redecorated through the kindness of Cornelius Kortier. The parish celebrated 125 years in 1965. At that time the parish had a baptized membership of 126 and 92 confirmed. The church basement had been enlarged and renovated in recent years at a cost of $10,000; this included a new furnace in the parsonage and a renovation of the parsonage. A water softener was also installed in the parsonage. The church interior was washed and the roof repaired in 1965. Many people of the town have fond memories or Rev. Spithaler, who was pastor from 1941-60. Everyone knew him…after all he was also a school bus driver. Ecumenism continued in Fort Jennings. School and public events included both Catholic and Lutheran pastors. At high school graduation exercises

St. John’s was dissolved 31 January 1988 because “the congregation simply became too small, they were no longer able to support a ministry there”, said the Rev. Michael Scherer, of the Northwestern Ohio Synod. Some of the parishioners have become members of the Lutheran Church in Continental, while others joined St. Peter’s in Delphos. The church furniture and pipe organ were donated to a Lutheran Mission Church in Lake Zurich, Illinois. One of the former members of the church in Fort Jennings had moved to Lake Zurich, and became a member of this little Lutheran mission. She ended up using the same pews she had used as a child. The 19 stained glass windows of the church were carefully removed in November and December of 1989 and donated to a newly constructed mission church, Christ Lutheran Church of Elk River, Minnesota. A crew of 5 removed the windows, along with the frames. Jack Holmes of Elk River said the cost of a new round 6 Fortdiameter stained glass window would be between five and six thousand. The name plates went along with the windows to Elk River. They bore the names of Stroh, Raabe, Kimmerle, Arn, Yenner, Davis, Friend, Freund and Brenner. The church bell will also be used in the steeple of the Elk River Church. The church building was demolished in March of 1990 by Gasser Contracting. Phil Oney gathered up some of the bricks for his patio, as did other residents of Fort Jennings. Mrs. Eda Kohls lives in a nice home on the former church lot at the corner of Main and Fourth Streets. The church parsonage next door was purchased by Tony Recker. The Recker family has extensively enlarged and remodeled the house. During the last formal service on 3 January 1988, the members took communion. They then took their communion supplies to Christ Lutheran Church in Continental as a symbolic gesture of the two churches joined together. It was sad to say “Good-Bye”. Many former parishioners are resting in the old Raabe Cemetery on Road 20-P, east of Fort Jennings and in the Calvary Cemetery on Route l90 near Fort Jennings. Sixty four pages of birth, death and marriage records were obtained from archives in Columbus through the efforts of John Freund of Fort Jennings and John Freund of Van Wert. These records can be found in the Bicentennial History of Fort Jennings, 1812 – 2012. A second printing of this book has been, with copies available at the Commercial Tax Office in Fort Jennings. St. Joseph’s Catholic Church The first group of Catholic pioneers arrived at Fort Jennings in July of 1834. The Lutherans had arrived in 1833. According to the Boehmer letters this group included H. J. Boehmer, Ferdinand VonderEmbse, B. H. Biester and his daughter, O. Deters, Dina Wilberding and J. H. Wellman. Wellman was from Langfoerden, Germany. Boehmer and the others were from Steinfeld, Germany. According to the 1998 Blue Book (History of St. Joseph’s), others in the “group of 10” could have been Agnes VonDerembse, Henry Frederick Wellman and Mary Wellman. Soon there-after came Ferdinand Gerking (King), Christopher Helmkamp, Casper Gerker, Calvelage and

VonLehmden. The Rekart family arrived in Putnam County after spending 10 years in Pennsylvania. Imogene Elwer wrote in the Blue Book that most of the early settlers first purchased land across the river from the fort. She discovered this information in early tax records, found in the court house attic. Since there was no employment to be found in this area, Boehmer returned to Minster, where he taught school for a couple years. He had been a teacher in Germany. While in Minster in 1837, he married Mary Wellman, daughter of J. H. Wellman. They returned to Fort Jennings in 1838. Boehmer taught school in Fort Jennings and traded tobacco, whisky and other supplies for furs and skins with Indians and settlers from his cabin across the river. In the early days of FortJ ennings the spiritual needs of the residents were provided by the Rev. William Horstmann, of Glandorf on the Blanchard River. He and John Kahle arrived in Putnam County in 1830. They came from Glandorf, Germany. The Professor, as he was known, possessed a great missionary zeal. In addition to his home parish, he traveled to Wapakoneta and Minster to attend to the spiritual wants of the Catholics there. Noticing the number of Catholics at Fort Jennings, he added that community to his missions and in 1834 said Mass for the first time in the home of one of the pioneers. Father Horstmann was also well versed in medicine, science and woodcraFort For four years he made the 18 mile trip to Fort Jennings about once a month. As time passed Father George Boehne was sent to Glandorf to assist Father Horstman. The Rev. Tunker, a pastor in Dayton came to FortJ ennings in 1838. He stayed a year or two. According to several local histories the Rev. Henry Herzog arrived in 1840. However the 1998 Blue Book states that “The Rev. Henry Herzog came to Fort Jennings in September of 1846 but remained only a year or so.” (More about him later.) Most historians record that Father Horstmann again served the Fort Jennings Catholics from 1839 to 1843, when he passed on to his great reward. The Blue Book lists Rev. George Boehne as serving the Fort Jennings people from 1841 – 1846; then again from 1847-1848 (traveling from Glandorf). During that time Rev. Herzog arrived in town, probably in 1846. He was not appointed by the Bishop, but remained in town for a year or so. Rev. Herzog stirred up trouble wherever he went. In Minster he created such a problem that Bishop Purcell of Cincinnati assigned another priest to that parish to restore order. Herzog left Ohio for a short time. After his arrival in Fort Jennings in 1846 he functioned as a priest, but without assignment. The records of the Rekart family indicate that Rev. Herzog performed the marriage of Sigmund Rekart and Mary Discher on 4 February 1847. In 1848, two priests from the Minster area wrote to Bishop Rappe of Cleveland, (the Cleveland Diocese was formed in 1847) wondering “what can be done with Henry Herzog”, who was reported living with the Boehmer family in Fort Jennings at that time. The Bishop of Cleveland wrote to the Bishop of Cincinnati, regarding a letter he had

BY MARGIE ROSTORFER Thank you all for your prayers, thoughts, well wishes and support for Scott, his wife, Carrie, and the German and Rostorfer families since Scott’s accidental fall last Thursday evening at Michigan International Speedway. Who would ever guess that falling a mere 14 inches could threaten Scott’s life with such severe brain/head trauma. After being life-flighted to the Toledo Hospital, Scott underwent immediate surgery to alleviate the blood clots and rapid swelling of his brain. He has given us some scares these past several days and remains in a coma and on a machine to help him breathe but he is young and strong — two definite pluses the doctors say; but the biggest plus is God. Speaking of pluses, did you know that the Delphos Thrift Shop was named one of the top three thrift shops in the region? We’re actually ranked second and are extremely proud to be named in the “Best of the Region 2012.” They listed highlights of the store as “the boutique area where shoppers can find name brand jewelry, clothing, designer purses and antique items. With teenagers heading off to college, stop

by the shop for blankets and sheets and household items. Other highlights include the toys and books for sale.” The Board of Directors were excited about the ranking and the article that described the shop and the various departments and items that can be found here. With the end of the recent Lincoln Highway sales, be sure to check out all the great bargains and high quality items that have come in. All of the departments are benefitting from the donations that came in through the drop-off window and the selection is great. The board has finalized plans and set the date of Sept. 9 as the Open House for the new addition. The public is invited from 2-4 p.m. to view the new addition which houses the book department, toy department, the Food Pantry, and the Social Services Department. There will be no sales conducted during the Open House hours. At the last board meeting, it was discussed that a Facebook page might be in the works for the Thrift Shop. Stay tuned as the details get worked out. Shoppers have been heard to say that they’ve tried other shops but nothing beats the prices, the

selection, the cleanliness and the quality of the items at the Delphos Thrift Shop. There was a shopper in recently who was visiting from North Carolina and was just thrilled with what she had found. She comes several times a year and she said “everyone is always so nice, too.” Another customer was thrilled with all of the artificial flowers and greenery she found, saying that she “couldn’t wait to get home to decorate with it.” If you’d like to be a part of the volunteer team, call the shop at 419-692-2942 or stop by. Your help, which is desperately needed, will be greatly appreciated. Also needed are your shopping bags — all sizes — and bubble wrap for breakable items. Selection plus bargain prices plus friendly people plus cleanliness equals a pleasant shopping experience. Come enjoy all the pluses! Until the next time, that’s this month’s report.

Strong 2nd half spurs ‘Cats in opener
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald. com WAYNESFIELD — Sometimes, halftime adjustments in the game of football are less about Xs and Os and more about taking a deep breath. That is what Jefferson head coach Bub Lindeman and his coaching staff did in Friday night’s 2012 season-opener at Waynesfield-Goshen High School; slowed down their troops. Trailing 14-13 after 24 minutes on a beautiful summer evening, the Red and White dominated the second half in all three phases, seizing a 38-17 victory. “That’s really all we did; got them settled down. We made mistakes we hadn’t made during our two scrimmages, so you feared they’d rear their ugly head at some time,” Lindeman explained. “Fortunately, we have great senior leadership and the kids responded. They played with great effort and became more aggressive, especially defensively. For example, we read their option the first half but the second half, we played downhill against it and did much better.” The Wildcat defense, which had given up 208 yards of offense the first half, held the Tigers to 75 in the second. It wasn’t all peaches and cream, though; the visitors fumbled on their first play from scrimmage the second half, with Waynesfield’s Cole Sackinger recovering at the Jefferson 42. However, senior safety Drew Kortokrax tipped a pass over the middle from senior quarterback Garret Miller (7-of-18 passing, 78 yards, 3 picks) to senior teammate Chris Truesdale, setting the Wildcats up at their 34. They did not take advantage of that but they did after forcing a fumble and having Zach Kimmett pouncing on it at the Tiger 38 on the next WG drive. Senior bull Quentin Wessell (13 carries, 84 yards) rumbled for 23 and then went up the gut from the 15, powered through arm tackles and found paydirt at 8:22. After junior holder Ross Thompson tried to run from the 2-pointer — from the spread extra point — and after discussion by the referees, he was ruled to not get in, leaving the score 19-14, Wildcats. The Wildcat defense forced a punt on the next possession. Kortokrax gathered it in on the leftside numbers at his 20. Originally juggling the pigskin but not drop-

hands. The Wildcats couldn’t take advantage and Waynesfield took over at its 21 with 1:33 on the clock. With Miller hitting 3-of-7 passes for 50 yards and also running for 21 (13 rushes, 68 yards), they drove the field in 11 plays. At the Delphos 2, Hennon busted off left guard with 2.2 ticks showing. Metsa’s kick made it 14-13 at the half. “I thought our first two series, we were pretty solid offensively. We then got a little lax,” Lindeman added. “What was good was how we came back out the second half and did well in all there phases: forcing turnovers and even getting a special teams score.” Jefferson hosts Paulding 7:30 p.m. Friday to commence NWC action. Waynesfield is at Fort Recovery.

Jefferson junior Zavier Buzard would not be denied on this scoring run Friday night, a 14-yarder where he bulled past Waynesfield-Goshen’s Jacob Risner and another defender on his way to the end zone. The score was part of a 25-point second half and a 38-17 victory.
ping it, he tore off for the wall on the right side, found the seam, made one cut inside at midfield and was gone for an 80-yard return score. Junior Austin Jettinghoff’s extra point was wide for a 25-14 spread at 5:41 of the third. The Tigers needed to respond to stay within striking distance and they did. After Lake Turner returned the kickoff 16 yards to the 36, they went on a 10-play sojourn that reached the Delphos 19. From there, exchange student Roope Metsa was good on a 36-yard field goal try to reduce the deficit to 25-17 with 2:03 showing in the third. The Red and White answered after junior Tyler Mox returned the kickoff 18 yards to the 38. They needed nine plays to do so, all but one a run — a 13-yard pass from Jettinghoff (5-of-8 passing, 129 yards) to classmate Ross Thompson (2 grabs, 56 yards). At the Tiger 14, junior tailback Zavier Buzard (18 totes, 143 yards) took a sweep to the right side and bulled his way to the pylon for the six. Jettinghoff’s point-after was wide for a 31-17 edge with 9:58 left. The next host possession ended as Miller was picked off by freshman Dalton Hicks at the Delphos 49. It took five plays — including a 45-yard aerial from Jettinghoff to Kortokrax — to add the final tally. At the WG 1, Wessell bulled straight up the middle with 6:58 left. Jettinghoff was good on the kick for the final 21-point margin. After the Wildcats held on the opening possession, they rode the offensive line of Geoff Ketcham, Evan Stant, Colin McConnahea, Isaac Illig and Kimmett on a 7-play, 91-yard drive — all on the ground. Buzard ran five times for 82 yards, including the 55-yard scoring run. He started off left tackle, escaped pressure behind the line and popped outside, finding open spaces along the sideline. He outran the defenders to the pylon. Jettinghoff’s conversion made it 7-0 at 7:03 of the first. The Tigers — out of the Wing-T — replied with a 14-play, 69-yarder, all on the ground. At the Jefferson 1, Gabe Hennon (25 carries, 87 yards) powered in off right guard for the tally with 18:9 ticks showing in the period. Metsa tied it at 7-7. An offensive pass interference on the Wildcats’ drive stymied that sequence and they punted, as did WG on its series. Jefferson used a quick 4-play, 56-yard series on its drive to retake the lead, including a 43-yard pass from Jettinghoff to Thompson. At the Tiger 3, Wessell went inside right guard, took one step to the right and found the end zone. However, the PAT was wide for a 13-7 lead with 6:28 showing in the half. The hosts reached Jefferson space but another tipped pass by Kortokrax ended up in Thompson’s

Bulldogs rout rival Rockets in grid opener By Dave Boninsegna The Delphos Herald COLUMBUS GROVE — It was deja vu all over again for the Columbus Grove Bulldogs as they began the 2012 football season the same way as the previous three — with a win over their State Route 12 rival PandoraGilboa Rockets Friday night at Clymer Stadium. The Rockets scored on the first possession of the game but Grove rattled off 40 unanswered points en route to a 40-6 victory. Collin Grothaus ran for a touchdown and threw for two more, adding 14 carries for 193 yards, Joey Warnecke ran the ball just three times but two of those found the end zone. Dakota Vogt had a 51-yard touchdown run, while David

Bogart and Riley Brubaker both caught Grothaus passes for touchdowns. The Rockets used six plays on their first drive of the game in finding the end zone; Seth Schmenk took the ball 46 yards to paydirt, although the extra point was missed, making it a 6-0 contest. However, that lead would not last long; the hosts would answer back on their first touch of the ball as Schmenk’s counterpart, Grothaus, took the Bulldogs third play from scrimmage 67 yards to the end zone. After a completed 2-point conversion, the home team lead 8-6. It appeared the Rockets would be on the move again; P-G was on a 10-play drive when it stalled out and turned the ball over on downs. Grove went 75 yards in six plays, culminating with a 51-yard TD run by Vogt; after

a missed 2-point attempt, the home team led 14-6 with just under three minutes to go in the first stanza. Grothaus didn’t make many mistakes on the night but on the Bulldogs’ next possession, he gave up an interception as the Rockets picked off a pass at the Columbus Grove 26-yard line. However, the ’Dogs’ defense was relentless and returned the favor when Hunter Giesige picked off a Schmenk pass to give the ball back to the hosts. This set up another long drive and another big play; Grothaus got loose again, this time for 50 more yards, setting up a 35-yard touchdown pass to Bogart, making it a 22-6 game. Both teams were held scoreless in the third but the home team got another big play in the fourth when Brubaker got open for a 40-yard strike to bring the score to 34-6. The Bulldogs scored the final points of the contest on yet another big play. Warnecke found the end zone for the second time, this one from 22 yards out, giving him his second score of the contest. Grove rushed for nearly 320 yards in the game, while Grothaus was 5-of-7 passing for 108 yards. The Rockets ran for 123 yards with 38 yards in the air. But the real differential was in the penalty yards. The first game of the season normally brings about a lot of adjustments but the Rockets were penalized five times for false starts and 10 times in the game for nearly 100 yards. Grove was flagged eight times for 45 yards. Grove hosts Allen East at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report CENTRAL OHIO Alum Creek Lake (Delaware County) - Smallmouth bass are active in this 3,192-acre lake north of Columbus; use crankbaits and jigs to fish the drop-offs of points in the lower basin. Saugeye can be caught in the same areas; try trolling worm harnesses in front of the beach at dawn and dusk. Crappies are being found around woody vegetation in 10-15 feet of water; use jigs or minnows. Muskies can provide good action this time of year; troll crankbaits along main lake points, the dam and causeways. Kokosing Reservoir (Knox County) - This 149-acre reservoir provides good largemouth bass and crappie fishing. Fishing the island and along the face of the dam for largemouths can be productive; try crankbaits and spinner baits. Crappies can be found along woody shoreline cover and in the old creek channel. As water temperatures decrease, these will move into shallower water to feed; minnows and jigs are the best baits. Channel catfish can be caught from shore on worms, shrimp and chicken livers. This lake has a 10-HP limit. NORTHWEST OHIO Maumee River (Lucas/Wood counties) - Anglers looking for some smallmouth action should check around Grange Island near the Route 64 bridge in Waterville. Anglers have been wading and casting pink and chartreuse twister tails; good numbers of fish in the 8to 15-inch range have been caught, as well as a few larger ones, especially the 4- to 5-foot deep holes around the island. Anglers can access the river from Memorial Park in Waterville. This is part of the Lake Erie fishing district, so a bag limit of 5 and a minimum size of 14 inches apply. Nettle Lake (Williams County) - This 103-acre natural glacial lake is located on CR 4.75, off of SR 49. Largemouth bass should be biting; mornings are usually the best but don’t overlook the evening bite. Focus efforts along the edges; try top-water lures and crème worms. Large crappies can usually be found near the lily pads in the northwest corner. There is a boat ramp off of CR 4.75 at the southwest corner. There are no horsepower restrictions; however, there is a No-Wake Rule (power boaters must operate at idle speed) between the hours of 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. From 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., there are no speed restrictions for power boaters. Findlay Reservoir #2 (Hancock County) - This 629-acre site with

4.2 miles of shoreline is located southwest of Findlay on Twp. Road 207, with a full boat ramp at the southern shore. Anglers should still be able to hook into some walleye in the evenings near the shoreline. Yellow perch and white bass should also be biting; white bass can be found feeding near the surface in schools throughout. During summer and fall, yellow perch can be caught around structure; the best baits include minnows and larval baits fished near the bottom. There is a 9.9-HP limit. NORTHEAST OHIO Mogadore Reservoir (Portage County) - This scenic reservoir continues to produce excellent catches of largemouths; casting white weedless rubber frogs into weedy bays and retrieving them over pockets of open water consistently produces explosive strikes. Weedless soft plastic worms in dark colors and brightly-colored deepdiving crankbaits have also been effective. The site is owned/operated by the City of Akron; thanks to the city, sportsmen/women can enjoy its wildlife-related resources. Fishing from shore is somewhat limited but the entire reservoir is available for boat fishing (electric motors only). SOUTHWEST OHIO Grand Lake St. Marys (Auglaize/ Mercer counties) - Channel catfish are popular at Ohio’s largest inland lake; try fishing on the bottom with nightcrawlers, chicken livers, shrimp or cut baits, particularly the Windy Point fishing pier and the stone piers along the east bank. Increase your chances of catching a large flathead catfish by using large chub minnows or live sunfish. LAKE ERIE Daily Bag Limit Per Angler Regulations to Remember: Walleye (on Ohio waters of Lake Erie) - 6 fish (minimum size, 15 inches); Yellow perch (on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie) - 30 fish; Trout/salmon - 5 through Friday (minimum size, 12”); Black bass (largemouth and smallmouth) - 5 (minimum size, 14”). Western Basin: Walleye fishing has been fair, especially N of “B” and “C” cans of the Camp Perry firing range and W of Rattlesnake Island. Trollers have been using worm harnesses with inline weights or divers and also divers with spoons. ... Yellow perch fishing has been good, particularly near buoy 13 of the Toledo shipping channel, the turnaround buoy of the Toledo shipping channel, the Toledo water intake, around “A” and “B” cans of the Camp Perry firing range, W of Rattlesnake Island and between Lakeside and Kelleys Island; perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.


The U.S. State Department wasn’t surprised last October when Egyptian security forces smashed into flocks of demonstrators outside the state Radio and Television Building, killing 25 and injuring hundreds. After all, the rally was called to protest the government’s failure to stop the burning of Coptic Orthodox churches or to arrest and convict leaders of the mobs. Sure enough, waves of thugs attacked the Copts, starting riots that drew deadly police vehicles. Once again, it didn’t shock State Department insiders that no one was held accountable. Coptic Christians and other religious minorities continue to live in fear. Similar tragedies have been sadly predictable in the past, but that must change if true democracy is going to come to Egypt and other lands struggling to escape centuries of strife, said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in remarks marking the recent release of the 2011 International Religious Freedom Report. “Egyptians are building a brand new democracy,” said Clinton, describing her recent visit there. “As I told the Christians with whom I met, the United States does not take the side of one political party over another. What we do is stand firmly on the side of principles. Yes, we do support democracy

On Religion
-- real democracy, where every citizen has the right to live, work and worship how they choose. ... “We are prepared to work with the leaders that the Egyptian people choose. But our engagement with those leaders will be based on their commitment to universal human rights and universal democratic principles.” The “sobering” reality, she stressed, is that religious freedom is “sliding backwards” worldwide, with more than a billion people living under regimes that deny them freedom of speech, association and liberty on matters of faith. The State Department once again released its familiar list of notorious “countries of particular concern” -- Burma, China, Eritrea, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Uzbekistan. This latest report is packed with telling details that are hard to ignore, said Thomas

Farr, director of Georgetown University’s Project on Religious Freedom. He served as the first director of the State Department office on international religious freedom. The problem is that America’s ambassador at large for international religious freedom has “little authority, few resources and a bureaucracy that is -- notwithstanding the secretary’s fine words -- largely indifferent” to the global state of religious freedom, noted Farr, in remarks posted at National Review Online. “It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that this issue is not a priority for this administration, except perhaps for the speechwriters (who are doing an outstanding job).” In her speech, Clinton did address a few hot topics that have previously been out of bounds, such as blasphemy laws. It’s time for Americans to realize, she said, that matters of faith and conscience are often life-and-death concerns -- literally. “Certain religions are banned completely, and a believer can be sentenced to death,” she said. “Strict laws ban blasphemy and defamation of religion. And when your words are interpreted as violations of those laws, you can be sentenced to death. Violence toward religious minorities often goes unpunished by authorities who look the other way.

“So the message is clear: If your beliefs don’t have government approval, beware.” When Americans defend religious freedom they are not simply defending values found in this land’s laws and creeds. They are also defending a key central tenet of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Thus, Clinton quoted Article 18: “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This right includes freedom to change his religion or belief and freedom either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.” It’s impossible to read those words, she said, without realizing that “religious freedom is not just about religion.” It’s about unbelievers, heretics, apostates and converts being able to live, think and gather in safety without the “state looking over their shoulder.” Without freedom of conscience, said Clinton, democracy is not safe. “You can’t debate someone who believes that anyone who disagrees with him by definition disagrees with God,” she said. “So let me simply say this: People can believe that they and only those like them possess the one and only truth.

Fort Jennings churches
(Continued from page 4)
received from Schoolmaster Boehmer, Herzog’s landlord in Fort Jennings. Boehmer warned of trouble brewing in Fort Jennings because of Rev. Herzog’s zealous teachings with imprudence. Records showed that Herzog paid personal property taxes in 1847 and 1848. These taxes were paid only by residents in the township. Rev. Herzog left Fort Jennings, returning to Minster, where he died in 1853. In August of 1848, Father Boehne was appointed the new resident pastor of Fort Jennings. This meant a Catholic parish was established at that time. With Father Boehne’s pastorate the records of the parish began. The first baptism recorded was that of Pauline Alvina, daughter of Louis and Catherine (nee Bolker) de Lucenay baptized 20 October 1848. The next entry was twins, Wilhelm and Catherine, son and daughter of Ferd and Agnes Lehmkuhl, baptized 25 October 1848. The only other baptism that year was Anna Elizabeth Helmkamp, daughter of William and Anna. The Bishop had encouraged the building of a new church. This was accomplished in 1852, under the guidance of Father Bohne. It was built on Water Street on lots donated by Boehmer. The 40 X 60 brick structure had a wooden steeple. The altar, pulpit and pews were of native black walnut. It had a small choir loft and the edifice was heated with a wood burning furnace. Entries of the first deaths were evidently made in the year of the cholera plague, 1855. These included: Schulte, kind, Aug 16; Henrick Brinkman, frau, Aug 19; L. de Lucenay, Aug 29; H. Broecker, frau, Aug 26; G. Stratman, Aug 29; F. Schimmoller, Sept 6; Lursman, kind, Sept 8; Frederick Kramer, Sept 17; L. Kramer, Sept 21; Casper Lehmkuhl, frau, Oct 8; Stratman, kind, Oct 12 and Franz Werries, Dec 14. Burials were made the same day as the death. Added to the cause of death were typhus, magenfieber and fleckenfieber. In the two years, 1855 and 1856, there were 62 deaths in the parish, 28 of which were those of children.The peak of the plague was over when the little parish suffered another loss. Father Bohne, who had suffered from epilepsy, was taken ill in June of 1860 and died in September. He was buried in the new graveyard down along the river, rather than in the old one in the same black with the church. After Father Bohne’s death the parish was attended to by Rev. Francis Westerholt of Delphos St. John’s. He served until 1861, when Father Goebbels was named the second resident pastor from 1861 to 1864. Then Ottoville became a mission of Fort Jennings. Father Bohne had lived in homes of parishioners. However Father Goebbels had a two story frame rectory built on Water Street. Soon turmoil rocked the nation. The Civil War began and several sons of the parish were called to service. There is no complete list of these men but the Blue Book lists the following Civil War Veterans as being buried in the St. Joseph’s Cemetery: Fredrich Baumann, Amos Boehmer, Henry Bode, Mathias Boberg, Ferdinand Eggemann, Theodore Hageman, Bernard Lehmkule, Joseph Menke, Frederich Schuerman, Henry Schuerman and John Wiechart. Sigmund Rekart and John Discher, Jr. also served. The first marriage records of the parish date from Father Goebbel’s time. On 11 February 1863, he officiated at the marriage of Anton von Lehmden and Catherine Ostendorf. On 4 November 1863, Ignatius Neidert and Catherine Reckfelder were joined in marriage. The first record of a First Communion class was made by Father Goebbels. In this March, 1862 Class of 16 were: Wilhelm Boehmer, Ludwig Calvelage, Mathias Shluter, Bernard Bohn, Maria Elizabeth Focker, Elizabeth Catherine Odenwaller, Anna Marie Recker, Mary Catherine VonDerEmbse, Julia Rekart, Lucia Schlober, Maria Agnes Wischenbrink, Catherine Hellman, Maria Wink and Maria Elizabeth Gerker. When Father Goebbels was reassigned, the Rev. H. E. Hammers became the pastor. He remained for less that a year in 1866. Then the parish became a mission of Ottoville again, where Rev. Anthony Abels was pastor. In 1866 the Rev. Christian Viere was sent as the new pastor of Fort Jennings. He remained as pastor for two years. Ten years after Father Viere left Fort Jennings, Bishop Gilmore removed him from his pastorate at Defiance St. John’s. Viere left the ministry, became a doctor of medicine and returned to FortJennings to practice. Residents elected him mayor of the village and justice of the peace of Jennings Township. Viere was reconciled with the Catholic Church before his death on 21 January 1893. He was buried as a priest in St. Joseph’s Cemetery. Following Father Viere’s reassignment, the parish again became a mission of Ottoville. The Rev. Michael Mueller met the spiritual needs of the parish for 2 years until a new pastor; the Rev. Leonz Zumbuhl arrived in July of 1870. During several months of 1872, while still assigned to FortJennings, Rev. Zumbuhl taught at St. Mary’s Seminary in Cleveland. During that time Rev. Mueller again came to FortJennings from Ottoville. St. Joseph’s remained a mission of Ottoville for 2 years until Rev. Charles Barbier arrived. The new pastor had been a French artillery officer. He owned a large library on the subject of fireworks. Each year he arranged for a colorful fireworks display on the church grounds on the Fourth of July. Father Barbier made the fireworks. Father Barbier died on 23 August 1876, and was buried in the parish cemetery. Father Barbier instructed that the chemicals he possessed for making fireworks should be thrown into the river when he died. He was afraid that they might become dangerous weapons in the hands of inexperienced handlers. A few months after the death of Father Barbier, the Rev. John Michenfelder was appointed to the parish. He and the Ottoville pastor also cared for the new Kalida Mission which was founded in 1877. The main altar of the church was replaced during Father Michenfelder’s pastorate and the parish bought an organ. Father Michenfelder remained three years before being transferred. His successor, the Rev. George Peter, also moved on after only three years. Father Jacob Heidecker arrived in FortJennings in July of 1881. He soon convinced parishioners of the need for a new church. Work began soon after Frederick Heitz, of Delphos, was hired as the general contractor. A procession of parishioners hauled stone by horse and wagon from the Rimer quarry. Bricks were made from a clay deposit along the Auglaize River. Bricks were burned in the spot under the supervision of William Guthrie, who received 5.00 a day. The cornerstone was laid 27 May 1883. Soon another slender Gothic spire stood out as a landmark in Putnam County. The church was 132 X 55 feet and erected at a cost of 21,000.00. The dedication took place 4 May 1884 but a torrential rain dampened the planned procession. One of the most unique architectural features of this edifice were the flying buttresses which graced each corner of the steeple and gave it added support. The furnishings of the church were ash and the gift of Matthias Hellmann, who had willed an 80 acre farm to the parish. Sale of the farm raised 4500.00 which was used to purchase the pews, altar, pulpit and Communion rail. The ornate workmanship of the Main Altar and the 2 side altars was considered to be among the most beautiful in Northwestern Ohio. The old church was converted into classrooms to supplement the corner school building. Father Heidegger left Fort Jennings in 1888 for the Dakotas, where he later died. He was replaced by Swissborn Father Charles Braschler, whose pastorate lasted one year. He was a linguist and musician. He could play a number of musical instruments in addition to the organ. Under his leadership an addition to the cemetery was laid out and a large crucifix was erected in the graveyard. A year before the turn of the century Rev. Matthias Arnoldi was appointed to succeed Father Braschler. A new brick pastoral residence was built at the cost of 7000.00 during Father Arnoldi’s pastorate. In 1904 lightning damaged the old church building which was being used as a school. A new school was built by the parish on Lot 6 and dedicated in August of 1909. The Toledo Diocese was formed in 1911. This was the third diocese of which Fort Jennings was a part of since its formation 63 years earlier. First it was Cincinnati, then Cleveland. Father Arnoldi was given credit for bringing the Sisters of St. Francis, Tiffin to For Jennings but such was not the case. They arrived during that time but not with his blessings. He did nothing to promote their comfort. An entry in the minute book in the Tiffin archives of the Sisters, dated September 1913, reads: “Sisters Anastasia, Mercedes and Vincent are sent to St. Joseph’s School, FortJennings, Ohio. Mrs. Leo Wildenhaus taught the upper grades. The Rev. Mathias Arnoldi, Pastor, did not wish sisters, so he made little preparations for their coming…. The Sisters lived in the school for sometime, but the first night they slept in the Miehls’ home, because the mattresses provided for them were “so dirty.” Parishioners came to their aid with food and living necessities. The bishop visited the parish. Soon after the Rev. John Christ was appointed to replace Father Arnoldi. Rev. Christ arrived in 1914. He was also an accomplished musician and an avid gardener. He displayed the best blue gladiolas at the Chicago World’s Fair. The next pastor was the Rev. Philip Schritz, who arrived in 1916. During his pastorate the C K of O held a picnic on the church grounds to buy a stained glass window for the Sanctuary. In 1916 the parish had 162 families (including 8 mixed marriages) and a congregation of 700 members. Then in 1917 the USA declared war on Germany. Special church services were held, including a novena, to implore the aid of the Immaculate Mother of Peace. Electric lights were installed in church in time for this special service. In 1917 the Sisters of St. Francis also moved into their new brick convent. A special service was included during the Forty Hours Devotion in August of 1918. The community prayed for the safe return of the 47 men of the parish, who were serving in the military. Three months later the armistice was signed. Four young men died during the war. They were Jacob Yenner, William Hellman, Elmer Kalt and Grover Calvelage. Receptions were given at the Memorial Hall for returning soldiers. The Spanish influenza epidemic struck the community during the winter of 1918, infecting more than 100 people in a few days. A “mission” was held in the Parish in 1919. Many folks the confessional. In 1924 Father Schritz visited all parishioners and took up a subscription for a new furnace in the school and a driveway in the cemetery. School attendance was averaging 160 students at this time. It was noticed in about 1928 that one young man and one young woman from the community were attending college. Rev. George J. May arrived in 1929 to take over the realm as pastor. He found the school building to be too small so 2 rooms were added, making 8 classrooms, with 9 teaching sisters. This was the year when B. A. Miehls bought a new organ in Lima and donated it to the parish. Mrs. B. A. Miehls had been the organist for almost 35 years. In those days the people were told which parish church to belong, too. A controversy arose over the boundaries between Cloverdale, Ottoville and Fort Jennings. A representative from the diocese ruled that everything from the Muntana Road north was Cloverdale territory. The favorite pastor of all time, Father John H. Miller, arrived in Fort Jennings in the fall of 1937. He would serve the parish for the next 30 years. He was a very saintly man, who loved to fish and got along well with the Lutherans. His housekeeper was Theresa Long, who also did the gardening. Father Miller often took Theresa and the Sisters of St. Francis along on fishing trips to the Auglaize River. Theresa was often seen picking up fish worms while gardening and putting them into her apron pocket. Then came “Pearl Harbor” on 7 December 1941, a day which would live in infamy. Many young men were called to the service of their country. Five from the parish did not return. They were Hubert Berelsman, Raymond Brockman, Elmer Broecker, Francis Hageman and William Lauf. The service flag in the church was filled with 103 stars. The parish celebrated the centennial in 1949, although it should have been one year earlier. The church was frescoed, a new rubber tile floor was laid

buildings because it was supported as a public school. Father Stein arrived in time to be involved in the building of the new elementary school with its 14 classrooms and a multi purpose room. It also had a kitchen and cafeteria. Father Stein was transferred in 1962, being replaced by Rev. John Hanacsek, a native of Czechoslovakia, who was ordained in Austria. On 25 March 1966 Father Hanacsek celebrated the first Mass in Fort Jennings, in which the priest faced the people. Father Hanacsek helped many parishioners get tickets for the Papal Mass in New York City in 1965. Pope Paul VI was elected in 1963. Father Miller celebrated his Golden Jubilee on 21 November 1964 at the age of 80. Two years later the new Sister’s Convent was build, facing First Street. Menke Bros. received the contract for 65,000.00 The Father Miller era ended in 1967, with his death on April 14th. He was buried in Toledo. He had served God and the community well. Father Hanacsek continued his duties until the new Pastor, Father Stein returned to Fort Jennings in June. He served as pastor for one year. Father Hanacsek later served as pastor of New Bavaria and North Creek. The Rev. Herman J. Fortman came to the parish as pastor in 1968. He was a native of Kalida. One of his first projects was installing a replica of Michelangelo’s Pieta at the entrance of the cemetery. In 1969 Menke Bros. were given the contract for a new rectory with building and furnishings costing 135,000. Father Fortman was often seen on the riding mower in the cemetery. Monsignor J. Fridolin Frommertz, retired the same year Father Fortman came to FortJennings. Father Fortman invited the Monsignor to live with him and help with the parish. Father Frommhertz assisted until his death in 1973. From his arrival until 1971, Father Fortman taught the high school religion classes once a week, during a common free period. In 1971 the parish began Thursday evening CCD classes for high school students. Lay persons helped with the teaching. The second Vatican Ecumenical Council of the Catholic Church was held from 1962 – 1965. The bishops attempted to come up with a plan for the church to survive in the modern world. Many of the profound changes were good but some sere not so good. New altars were installed for the priest to face the congregation during Mass. Mass was celebrated in English instead of the traditional Latin. Saturday evening Masses were introduced to answer the Sunday Mass requirements. Parish councils were elected to act as advisors to the pastor and parishioners were asked to become more active in the church which included being lectors and cantors. Carl Wieging became the first lector in the parish. Lay persons were now permitted to distribute Holy Communion as both bread and wine. Catholics could receive the Eucharist in the hand. All of these changes were accepted very well but then came the renovations of many Catholic Churches. St. Joseph’s became a victim of this popular (or unpopular) project. The beautiful ornate wooden altars were removed, as were the pulpit and the Communion rail. The wood was said to be deteriorating. The Tabernacle was moved to the right side of the Sanctuary. Naturally a new paint job was in order, carpeting was installed and restrooms built in the basement. In 1975 the first Son of the Parish was ordained to the priesthood. He was Dennis Ricker, son of Virgil and Angela (Rahrig) Ricker. He died at a young age in 1990, after serving in Texas and Ohio. The Blizzard of 1978 hit Fort Jennings and much of Ohio. Father Fortman said one Mass on Sunday but very few parishioners were able to brave the elements to get there. Father William Conces retired to Fort Jennings in 1979. He remained in the parish for 5 years. Father Fortman made plans to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the building of the church but was transferred before the celebration. His request for a parish history was carried out in 1984. Father John J. Shanahan, a native of Lima was appointed pastor in July of 1983. He was a Priestly Man with a ready smile. He started the prebaptismal program and the prenuptial counseling sessions. The last teaching Sisters retired in 1983, ending 70 years of teaching by the Sisters of St. Francis. Sister Norbertine Loshe remained in Fort Jennings for 5 years as coordinator of the religious education program. Sister Julie Grote made her home in Fort Jennings also. They both moved on in 1996 after Sister Norbertine celebrated the 60th Anniversary of her religious profession. Several young women from the parish have dedicated their life to Christ by entering the Sisters of St. Francis, Tiffin. They are: Sister Alma Ricker, Sister Carol Ann Pothast, Sister Edna Ricker, Sister Gemma Fenbert, Sister Mary Ann Lucke, Sister Virginia Fisher, Sister M. Euphrasia Wallenhorst, Sister T. Jane Schimmoeller, Sister Vincent DePaul Kohls and Sister Ruth Wieging. Sister Ruth later returned to the private life and married. The Centennial of the church building was held on 25 March 1984. After a Solemn Latin Mass the men of the parish served a dinner. It was attended by members of both St. Joseph’s parish and the St. John’s Lutheran members. The second son of the parish, Timothy Maag was ordained a priest in 1992. In 1996 he took a leave of absence from his ministry. Father Michael Schelling, a Defiance native was appointed the 19th Pastor of St. Joseph’s. During his pastorate, in 1995, girl Mass servers were introduced. Alissa Hamond and Heather Kaverman had the privilege of being the first to serve for Father Schelling. Another fourth grader, Brianne VonLehmden also joined the ranks, following training by Elvera Wieging. Parish organizations also changed. The Altar Rosary Society disbanded in 1996. The Sodality, (for unmarried Persons) and the St. Joseph’s Society also became inactive. The Catholic Ladies of Columbia remained very active. Read more in Wednesday’s Herald.

Interior in the Lutheran church.
were upset because of repeated sermons on race and suicide. “But what really riled their feathers was that many good people were refused absolution the confessional for trivial reasons.” Some of those old “missions” were fire and brimstone. In 1921 the new sanctuary windows, which were made in Germany, were installed. That was the same year the township and village public schools were consolidated. Transportation was provided to everyone. At that time the parochial school had about 130 students. St. Joseph’s School operated as a parochial grade school until January 193l. It was in December of 1930 when the Fort Jennings Board of Education made a contract with St. Joseph Parish to use the parochial school building for a public school for grades 1 to 8. The consolidation was complete. During the roaring twenties the men of the parish held a picnic in VonLehmden’s grove. The pastor remarked “No dance nor foolish doings were allowed.” In March of 1920, an early morning storm damaged the slate roof of the church and blew down the chimneys. Another interesting controversy arose as to whether the Ben Dickman family belonged to the Fort Jennings Parish or Kalida. Father Rupert of Delphos St. John’s came to decide the issue. He believed the family lived closer to Fort Jennings. Also members of a neighboring parish came to Fort Jennings for Saturday confessions because they were up in arms about their pastor making requests for money in and pews were revarnished in preparation for the celebration. The high school band let the procession for this event. The book “First One Hundred Years of St. Joseph’s Parish” was written at this time. A summer migrant program was initiated by Father Miller in 1958. This was the first federally funded program of this kind in the nation. It provided an educational program for Mexican American Children from 1958 to 1978. Sometimes there was also a fall session. Children were bused from migrant camps in Delphos, Kalida and Ottoville also. The school was taught by the Sisters and other volunteers at the grade school. In 1958 Pope Pius XII passed away and Pope John XXIII was elected to succeed him. The following year the Rev. Gerald M. Stein was assigned to Fort Jennings as the first assistant pastor. Father Miller was aging and needed help. The annual St. Joseph’s “Homecoming” on the 2nd Sunday of August is another of Father Miller’s accomplishments. This festival was held outside in tents on the church grounds. The big event continues to this day with delicious home – cooked meals. Activities keep changing with the times. During Father Miller’s pastorate our country got involved in 2 more wars. Young men had to march off to Korea in the 50s and Vietnam in the 60s and 70s. We are thankful they all returned alive. This was also the year the school district was told to remove crucifixes and other religious items from the school

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, AUGUST 26, 2012 New people will be entering your life in the year ahead and could become extremely important in some of your affairs. One or more of them might have a positive influence in furthering your ambitions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -When trying to promote something important, use a soft sell rather than a hard pitch. Your audience will be able to better visualize what you say when you paint some verbal pictures. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Because you’re equally as intuitive as you are logical, your business instincts could be better than usual. With this combination working on your behalf, it should spell big profit. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You won’t have to do anything out of the ordinary to attract attention. You won’t go unnoticed, regardless of the size of the crowd or type of people in attendance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Should you get involved in something of a confidential nature, make sure that you don’t mention your plans to people who are not key players. There’s no reason to involve outsiders. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Sometimes, people come to us for advice but don’t really listen to anything we have to say. This won’t be true in your case -- your reputation will command respect and deference. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Many of your best ideas will involve ways to further your ambitions and add to your resources. This might encourage you to aim for many different kinds of targets. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You’re likely to make an indelible impression on others, not because of any heroic deed, but because of all the little acts of thoughtfulness you display. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Although you might not be invited to participate in a friend’s undertaking, you can create your own venture and perhaps have even more fun. Do your own thing. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Do what you want to do in concert with others, rather than going it alone. Not only will things be easier to pull of, you’ll also have a lot more laughs and joy being with others. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- When your artistic and creative attributes start vying for attention, find some time to respond to them. Chances are you’ll produce something of beauty that’ll last a lifetime. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You’ll feel more satisfied if you select activities that require both mental and physical agility. Better yet, engage in games that stimulate competition. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Owing to the good auspices of others, your possibilities for gain look exceptionally promising. You’ll do especially well getting involved with persons who have generous natures. MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 Several significant successes are likely to be in the offing for you in the year ahead. Onlookers might view your objectives as unduly complicated, but you’ll see them as simple, because they’ll be labors of love. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Insincerity will be instantly detected and result in you being labeled a shallow person. If you can’t honestly find something worth praising in another, there’s something wrong with you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Thinking big doesn’t mean a thing unless you put your words into action. The only way you can achieve noteworthy successes is to earn them through effort and application. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Instead of viewing matters realistically, you’re likely to color facts to suit your expectations. Self-deception will result in huge disappointments. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Even though it might be hard to convince you otherwise, the world doesn’t owe you any free rides. You shouldn’t expect anything more than what you deserve. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Be mindful of your behavior, or else it will be far too easy for you to be overly attentive to someone who doesn’t deserve it while totally ignoring someone who does. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- A commitment you make might be of little importance to you but quite significant to the person to whom you’re making it. Be sure to honor your word. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Pretending to be something other than what you are will be detected by your friends and will make a poor impression on them. The world will love you more if you are your own sweet self. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Do not be too disappointed if someone whom you’re very fond of does not live up to your expectations. Leave him or her some room to be human -- no one is perfect all the time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Stop and think before you open your mouth, or you could experience one of those embarrassing moments when you say the wrong thing, at the wrong time, to the wrong person. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Thinking you have to be a big spender in order to impress someone is barking up the wrong tree. If you have to drop a lot of dough to get someone’s attention, then he or she isn’t anybody you want to know. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- When it comes to one-on-one relationships, treat everyone as an equal and forgo all forms of brinksmanship. If you try to put on any airs or affectations, someone will trump you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Unless you keep pace with your obligations and duties, you are likely to sweep certain obligatons under the rug. If you do, you’ll pay a hefty price later on.

Gunman killed outside Empire State Mexican Navy: Police fired on US gov’t vehicle Building likely didn’t have time to fire
NEW YORK (AP) — Jeffrey Johnson hid behind a car in his business suit and tie near the Empire State Building, waiting for the man he blamed for costing him his job. He put a gun to the executive’s head and fired five times, then walked off with his briefcase into the morning rush of midtown Manhattan. Minutes later, Johnson was dead in front of the landmark skyscraper, killed by police Friday in a chaotic confrontation that sent bullets ricocheting, wounded nine other people and left sidewalks near one of the world’s best-known landmarks spattered with blood. Police released dramatic surveillance video that showed the confrontation lasted only a few seconds. Johnson was walking rapidly down the street trailed by two police officers when he stopped, wheeled around and pulled out a gun. About a dozen people ran for their lives, including two small children who were just feet away from Johnson. He pointed the gun at the officers, who quickly fired at him. Johnson dropped his briefcase, fell to his knees and then collapsed on the ground. The bystanders likely were hit by police officers’ stray gunfire, some of it bullets that rebounded off planters in front of the skyscraper and grazed pedestrians. The two officers fired 16 shots. The surveillance video shows Johnson pointing his weapon at police, but it’s likely he did not get a chance to fire, investigators said. Startled New Yorkers looked up from their morning routines in the crowded business district to see people sprawled in the streets bleeding and a tarp covering the body in front of the tourist landmark. “I was on the bus and people were yelling ‘get down, get down,” said accountant Marc Engel. “I was thinking, ‘You people are crazy, no one is shooting in the middle of midtown Manhattan at 9 o’clock in the morning.” It was over in seconds, he said — “a lot of pop, pop, pop, pop, one shot after the other.” Afterwards he saw sidewalks littered with the wounded, including one man “dripping enough blood to leave a stream.” Johnson, who neighbors had seen leave his apartment in a suit every day since he was laid off a year ago, had worked for six years for Hazan Imports and was let go when the company downsized, police Commissioner Ray Kelly said. Police were looking into his relationship with the victim, Steven Ercolino, the company’s vice president of sales, who had traded accusations of harassment with Johnson when he worked there. Johnson, 58, also blamed Ercolino for his layoff, saying that he hadn’t aggressively marketed Johnson’s new T-shirt line, police spokesman Paul Browne said. After waiting for Ercolino, 41, to come to work, Johnson walked up to him, pulled out a .45-caliber pistol and fired at his head, Kelly said. After he fell to the ground, Johnson stood over him and shot four more times, a witness told investigators. “Jeffrey just came from behind two cars, pulled out his gun, put it up to Steve’s head and shot him,” said Carol Timan, whose daughter, Irene, was walking to Hazan Imports at the time with Ercolino. A construction worker who saw the shooting followed Johnson and alerted two police officers, a detail regularly assigned to patrol city landmarks such as the 1,454-foot skyscraper since the Sept. 11 terror attacks, officials said. Kelly said the officers who caught up to Johnson had “a gun right in their face” and “responded quickly, and they responded appropriately.” “These officers, having looked at the tape myself, had absolutely no choice,” Kelly

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican federal police fired on a U.S. Embassy vehicle and wounded two U.S. government employees Friday after their vehicle drove into a rural, mountainous area outside the capital where the officers were looking for criminals, Mexican and U.S. officials said. The two embassy employees were hospitalized, one with a leg wound and the other hit in the stomach and hand, according to a government official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Another official said they were in stable condition. The U.S. Embassy had not released details of the shooting or the names of the victims nearly 12 hours later. The Navy said in a written statement that federal police shot the U.S. vehicle, but its description of the incident left out key details of how the shooting occurred. It said at least four vehicles opened fire on the Americans’ sport utility vehicle on a road south of Mexico City, but did not make clear if any of the four carried federal police officers. A U.S. official who was briefed on the shooting said, however, that all the shots were fired by federal police, of which at least 12 officers were being held for questioning by Mexican authorities. The U.S. Embassy employees were on their way to do training or related work at a nearby military base, the official said. The Navy said the embassy personnel were heading down a dirt road to the military installation when a carload of gunmen opened fire on them and chased them and a Navy officer accompanying them. The shooting broke out in an area that has been used by common criminals, drug gangs and leftist rebels in the past.

PR guru: More Harry material may emerge Syrian regime airstrikes kill 21 in eastern city
LONDON (AP) — Brace yourself, Harry. A prominent British public relations guru said Friday he’d been approached by two women who claimed to have more material on Prince Harry, raising the possibility that the world may soon be seeing more compromising images of the British royal. Earlier this week, celebrity gossip website TMZ published photos of Harry romping in the nude during a party at his Las Vegas hotel suite. Many Britons have laughed off the 27-yearold prince’s hijinks, but questions have been raised about his publicly-funded security detail. In a telephone interview, publicist Max Clifford said he had been called by two American women who claim they were in the prince’s hotel room in the U.S. last week. Clifford, a savvy operator famous for negotiating kiss-and-tell interviews, said the women “said they had lots of interesting things: pictures, video, that kind of thing.” He said he turned them down. On Thursday, TMZ claimed that “several girls” had taken pictures at the party using their cellphones as the party got started and that “more photos were taken” after the clothes came off. Neither TMZ nor Clifford has made clear whether they believe the unreleased photographs show the prince in the nude. British publications have largely steered clear of the photographs, with the prominent exception of Rupert Murdoch’s The Sun tabloid, which became the first paper to splash the pictures across its front page on Friday with the words: “HEIR IT IS!” and marketing the grainy photograph as a “souvenir printed edition.” The paper said it had defied the wishes of the royal family because there was a public interest in knowing what the prince, who represented the queen at the 2012 Olympic Games and is heavily involved in charity work, got up to while abroad.

BEIRUT (AP) — A government warplane bombed an apartment building in eastern Syria on Friday, killing at least 21 people as the regime fought to claw back ground lost to rebel fighters in the area who have made significant advances in the city, activists said. In Damascus, shells from mountains overlooking the Syrian capital crashed into the rebellious suburb of Daraya as part of a days-long regime offensive to regain control of the area. Activists said at least 15 people were killed in the shelling and clashes. The air raid on Mayadin, a city in Deir el-Zour province near the Iraqi border, occurred after rebels gained control of a key checkpoint on a bridge over the Euphrates River there, local activist Abu Omar al-Deery said. He claimed that rebels have largely gained control of Mayadin for the first time in the 17-month-old uprising in Syria, adding that the only part still in regime hands is an artillery position on a hill overlooking the city. Rebels seeking to oust President Bashar Assad have been fighting to expand their foothold along the eastern frontier. The opposition already controls a wide swath of territory along the border with Turkey in the north, as well as pockets along the frontier with Jordan to the south and Lebanon to the west. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 21 people, including 12 women and a child, were killed in the airstrike. Al-Deery put the death toll at 23. The figures and details could not be independently confirmed due to tight controls over the media in Syria. Human rights groups say more than 20,000 people have been killed in Syria since the uprising against Assad erupted in March 2011 and evolved into a civil war. The bloodshed already has spilled over into neighboring countries.
