Organ donors needed in Ohio
BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com LIMA — Recent studies show more than 112,000 Americans are currently waiting for an organ transplant that would save their lives. Just one organ donor could potentially save eight of those lives or 58 if you include tissue donation. April is Organ Donation Awareness Month and National Donate Life Month. Life Line of Ohio is working with St. Rita’s Medical Center and 70 other Ohio hospitals to educate people about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation in saving lives. Deann Heiing, who works as ICU Manager at St. Rita’s, says if you’re not already an organ donor, local opportunities for easy registration are fast approaching. “As part of the community partnership with LifeLine and St. Rita’s, we will be hosting

Project Recycle set today


The public is invited to attend a presentation and open discussion of the “Strategic Plan to Restore the Miami-Erie Canal in the Greater Delphos, Ohio Area” at 7 p.m. on April 29 at the Delphos Municipal Building. The initial plan was developed in 2006 by a committee made up of a diverse group of interested and concerned citizens under the auspices of the Delphos Canal Commission and MECCA. The plan addresses trails, green space, open public areas, education, economic development, history, aesthetics, water flow, signage and other issues that will help shape the future of this historic asset.

Students read to volunteers at library

Vancrest Assisted Living resident Helen Metzger, left, listens as St. John’s thirdgrader Halle Elwer reads to her during the Delphos Public Library’s inaugural Once Upon a Time Inter-generational Reading Time Thursday at the Library. There were 17 students and six residents. Each resident has three students read to them during a session. This program will run the rest of the school year and will begin again in the fall when the new school year begins. The residents and children both really enjoyed the time they spent together. The students practiced reading in school and made pictures to give to their older counterparts. (Submitted photo)

a 5K run/walk and one-mile fun-run on April 28 at St. John’s Annex,” she said. “If you’re not already an organ donor, we will be able to get you registered that day as well as answer any questions you may have. “We will also be speaking to high school students on April 23 at Jefferson and April 26 at St. John’s. Amber Payne will be our guest speaker. Amber is a young lady who had cystic fibrosis and is the recipient of a double lung transplant. She is an amazing lady and her story is very touching.” Heiing is well acquainted with the merits of organ donation — professionally and personally. “This topic is very important to me,” she said. “I have seen both sides of the organ donation process since I have an aunt who was a kidney recipient and I’ve worked with See ORGAN, page 10

Lyrid meteor shower peaks Monday

The Lyrid’s will have a peak display at 1 a.m. until sunrise on Monday morning (Metro photo)

DELPHOS — The annual Lyrid meteor shower has been on display since April 16 and will be visible until Thursday. Starting around 1 a.m. Monday, the Lyrid’s will be above the horizon, start its peak time and be visible until the sun rises when they will be right overhead. The Lyrid meteor shower is among the oldest of known meteor showers, with records going back for some 2,700 years. Apparently, the ancient Chinese observed the Lyrid meteors “falling like rain” in the year 687 BC. Every year, in the later part of April, our planet Earth crosses the orbital path of Comet Thatcher, which was discovered in 1861 by Carl Wilhelm Baeker and the Orbit discovered by A.E. Thatcher for who the comet was named after. Comet Thatcher last visited the inner solar system in 1861 and is not expected to return until the year 2276. Lima Astronomical Society (L.A.S.)

Retired Police Sergeant Bev Cross-McNeal was honored for her service to Delphos and its police department at Monday’s city council meeting. Cross-McNeal was on the force for 33 years starting in June 1979 as a dispatcher. She began on the auxiliary force in August 1979 and joined the department full-time on Nov. 4, 1979, making history as the first full-time female police officer in Delphos. In 1988, she was promoted to sergeant, the first female police supervisor Delphos had seen.

BY JAY LINDSAY and EILEEN SULLIVAN WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) — A 19-year-old Massachusetts college student wanted in the Boston Marathon bombing was captured hiding out in a boat parked in a backyard Friday and his older brother lay dead in a furious 24-hour drama that transfixed the nation and paralyzed the Boston area with fear. The bloody endgame came four days after the bombing and just a day after the FBI released surveillance-camera images of two young men suspected of planting the pressure-cooker explosives that ripped through the crowd at the marathon finish line, killing three people and

wounding more than 180. The two men were identified by authorities and relatives as ethnic Chechens from southern Russia who had been in the U.S. for about a decade and were believed to be living in Cambridge, Mass. But investigators gave no details on the motive for the bombing. Early Friday morning, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a ferocious gun battle and car chase during which he and his younger brother hurled explosives at police from a stolen car, authorities said. The younger brother managed to escape. During the getaway attempt, the brothers killed an MIT policeman and severe-

For The Record

Ohio State offers fun money The Delphos lessons for students Herald BY ENCARNACION PYLE state residents to go to colCOLUMBUS (AP) — When Alice Hirsh climbed onto the golf cart that pulled up beside her near the union at Ohio State University she thought it was simply a free ride to class. But as soon as it pulled into traffic, the driver turned around and asked “Have you seen Cash Cab?” The student beside her then said in her best game-show voice, “I’m Elizabeth, your host of Buck$ Bus. Just think of me as your Ben Bailey,” the host and driver of the Discovery Channel’s Cash Cab. She then peppered Hirsh with multiple-choice questions for a shot at winning a $10 gift card in a game designed to teach students about budgeting and financial planning. What is the average amount of financial aid received each year by full-time undergraduate students? a) $11,500 b) $12,455 c) $15,000 d) $13,655 “It’s b, a little more than $12,000,” Hirsh shouted after thinking about it for a few seconds. “You are correct. Very good job,” said host Elizabeth Howard, a second-year law student who works at OSU’s Student Legal Services, one of three groups that hosted the event. With the economic downturn and rising academic and living costs, students increasingly are relying on debt to finance their tuition and daily expenses, said Bryan Ashton, program coordinator for OSU financial-wellness programs. Ohio remains one of the most-expensive states for inlege. Ohio students who borrowed for college and earned a bachelor’s degree in 2011 graduated with an average of $28,683 in student-loan debt — the seventh-highest in the nation for the second year in a row, according to a report by the Project on Student Debt. Ohio State graduates were below the state and national debt averages, at $24,840. But that’s still too high, Ashton said. “Statewide, we know that nearly 70 percent of four-year students are stressed about their finances and about30 percent struggle to make their daily expenses,” he said. And younger Americans appear to be taking on more credit-card debt than the generations before them and are slower in paying it off, according to a recent Ohio State study. A growing number likely will go to their graves in debt, researchers say. Ohio State’s Scarlet and Gray financial coaching program, which is on pace to reach 4,000 students this year compared with 1,800 students last year, is gaining national attention, Ashton said. As part of the program, trained student coaches teach others about the basics of budgeting, the facts about credit-card debt, the importance of understanding their credit score and how to avoid taking on too much debt, he said. Fun events like Buck$ Bus help Ohio State reach even more students in a fun way, said Molly Hegarty, managing director at OSU’s Student Legal Services.

AKRON (AP) — An 18-year-old Ohio man was indicted Friday on aggravated murder and other charges in the April 2 killing of a prominent attorney and his wife with a sledgehammer. Shawn Ford of Akron was indicted on five counts of aggravated murder, two counts of aggravated robbery and one count each of aggravated burglary, grand theft and petty theft. Further details were not released about the basis of the five murder charges, which include specifications that indicate prosecutors will seek the death penalty if Ford is convicted. Ford is accused of killing attorney Jeffrey Schobert, 56, and his 59-year-old wife, Margaret, who were found dead in their home in New Franklin by construction workers doing remodeling work. Ford also is charged with felonious assault in a nonfatal attack on the couple’s teenage daughter, who was stabbed at a party on March 23 and suffered a skull fracture. Police have said Ford dated the girl, and there are indications a conflict about the relationship might have been a motive in the killings. “The murders of Jeffrey and Margaret Schobert were particularly brutal,” Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh said in a statement. “Shawn Ford is accused of killing two people, both of whom were, by all accounts, kind and generous people who treated him with the utmost respect.” Ford’s attorney, Jonathan Sinn, said he had not discussed the indictment with Ford and couldn’t immediately comment. Sinn said he planned to notify Ford’s family about the charges and hoped to meet with Ford

9-1-1 things everyone needs to know
Information submitted As we continue through the month of April, “9-1-1 Education Month,” review the following information with your family: Know WHAT 9-1-1 is 9-1-1 is the phone number you can call from any phone anywhere in the United States when you need help or see someone who needs help right away. Know WHEN to call 9-1-1 9-1-1 is for emergencies only. You should only dial 9-1-1 if someone is very ill, seriously hurt or in danger, or if you are in immediate need of police, fire, or medical assistance. If you aren’t sure if your situation is an emergency, you should err on the side of safety and call 9-1-1 and let the dispatcher who answers your call make the decision whether to send help or not. Know WHEN NOT to call 9-1-1 Don’t call 9-1-1 just because you need help finding an address or there is a raccoon in your garage. While those situations may count as emergencies for you, they aren’t for public safety. Inappropriate use of the 9-1-1 system wastes resources and ties up the lines at the 9-1-1 center, and nobody wants delayed service. Not to mention that in Ohio harassing or making prank calls to 9-1-1 is a crime. Know the capabilities of the device you are using 9-1-1 can be contacted from pretty much every device that can make phone calls (traditional landline, cell, VoIP), but the callback and location information that accompanies your call to the 9-1-1 center can vary drastically amongst technologies and between geographic regions. 9-1-1 and telecommunications professionals are hard at work to make sure 9-1-1 works the same on all devices in the future, but until then it is your job to be knowledgeable about benefits and limitations associated with various technologies. Contact your service provider(s) for more information. Know what happens when you call 9-1-1 After you dial, the person who picks up on the other end will be someone who works at a 9-1-1 center and whose job it is to help you. They may ask you to do things to help or ask you questions. It is important that you follow their directions as best you can. They will send someone to wherever you are and stay on the phone with you until everyone is safe. Know where you are This is probably the most important information you can provide as a 9-1-1 caller, so try to be aware of your surroundings. Make a real effort to be as detailed as possible, if you are outside and don’t know the street address, take a look around and try to find landmarks or cross streets. If you are inside a large building or one with multiple levels, you can help emergency services by letting them know which floor you are on, which apartment number you are in, which door to enter, etc…. Stay calm When you are on the phone with 9-1-1, you are their eyes and ears. Even though you may want to, try not to panic. If you are crying or yelling, it can be difficult for the 9-1-1 operator to understand you. If you are able to stay strong, pull yourself together, and answer all of the 9-1-1 operator’s questions, the faster they See 9-1-1, page 10

Grave marker dating back to 1846 found
F.B. Bryan, who is in charge of the improvement work at the Hartshorn cemetery, reports a list of men who met at the cemetery last Thursday and assisted in the work of grading, consisting of the following: J.O. Foust, E.C. Ford, Jacob Cramer, Chas. Fostnaught, Henry Groves, Alex Dunlap, J.W. Bryan, Alden Smith, James Kiggins, Simon Kiggins, L. Friend, William Wells, F.B. Bryan. Some of these parties also furnished teams. Mr. Bryan wishes to thank all who assisted. A number of visitors were also present and were well pleased with the work being done. While engaged in the work at the cemetery, Mr. Bryan found a marker which is of considerable interest. It bore the name of John Sutton, and gave the date of death July 20, 1846. This will be preserved as a pioneer marker at the cemetery and will be placed upon a new base. Mr. Bryan would like to hear from surviving members of the Sutton family. A number of donations are being received for the work. Delphos Herald, Oct. 6, 1919 ————— Hundreds Visited Beautiful New Theatre The new Grand Theatre, in the Shroeder brick block, next door north of the old Grand Theatre, was formally opened to the public on New Year’s evening, January 1, by F.H. Staup. This new theatre is one of the commodious, neat and convenient that can be found anywhere in the state of Ohio, and has been paid the compliment by an inspector of the office of the State Fire Marshal, of being the most complete from the standpoint of fire protection that he has ever inspected. This is the first picture show in Ohio constructed and opened under the new code of building laws affecting places of public assembly. The operators booth, equipped with two machines, is made of cement and asbestos blocks and iron doors, and is so arranged that it would be practically impossible for fire from this room to reach any other part of the building. All emergency exits required, have been provided and properly safeguarded. The interior work was done by contractor John Wallace and his men. Frank Krutch did the interior decorating work, papering, painting, etc., and Mr. Decurtin of Lima decorated the front. The main entrance doors are of oak with brass trim, and from the street the recessed entrance presents a most beautiful appearance, although there is still some work to be done by Mr. Decurtin. Delphos Herald, Jan. 2, 1912 ————— Negroe’s House Fire A story and a half frame house, outside the corporation line from Marbletown,



Window to the Past
occupied by John Covington, the Negro bill poster, took fire this morning about 8:30 from an unknown source, and before the blaze was quenched, ruined the upper part of the house. A bucket brigade did good work in the absence of the fire department which was not called. No damage was done to the goods with the exception of some being soaked with water. The house was an old one and the loss is not heavy. Delphos Herald, Mar. 11, 1896 ————— Selling Beer in Landeck? A case entitled The State of Ohio vs. Henry Shaffer, was tried before Squire Hunsaker in Mayor’s court room today. Attorney H.A. Reeve represented the defense and B.J. Brotherton prosecuted the case. The charge was for, “selling beer in Landeck.” The court decided that there was no cause for action and dismissed the charges. Delphos Herald, Mar. 11, 1896 ————— Michigan Farmers Growing Peppermint The farmers of southwestern Michigan find peppermint a profitable crop to raise, especially those who have marshy land. Last year the yield was immense and a vast amount of money was made upon the oil and the stems were afterward cured as hay and brought a handsome price. Some farmers, the coming season, will give their entire attention to this crop. Delphos Herald, Mar. 11, 1896 ————— Big Saloon Fire A fire which destroyed one of Delphos’ oldest business buildings, occurred at about 12:15 Thursday morning. Fire was discovered by one of the night policemen in the frame building occupied by J.G. Farnam’s saloon, and an alarm was immediately turned in and the department responded promptly, but the fire had gained such headway that very little could be done to save the building and stock. This was erected in 1873, the year following the big fire which destroyed all the buildings in that section of Main street. It was a small

one-story, frame structure, and the old dried out shell burned like tinder. The fire started in a small room at the rear of the bar room, apparently from an overheated stove. The roof of the building was of tin, which together with the steel ceiling in the bar room made the fire very hard to fight, and kept the flames inside the building to a great extent and caused great damage to the stock and fixtures owned by Mr. Farnam. The building is owned by Chas. Mathes, and while there is no insurance on the building, he will not suffer much loss as it was his intention to tear it down this spring and he had already arranged to erect a new twostory brick building on the site. What remains of the old building will be cleared away to make room for the new building. The new structure will be 24 by 100 feet and will have a pressed brick front. Mr. Farnam, owner of the saloon stock carried $1500 in insurance. He carried a large stock of goods and expensive fixtures. Delphos Herald, Feb. 29, 1912 ————— Reckless Bike Riders A few days ago, the Herald made mention of the narrow escape of a little girl from being run over by a reckless bicycle rider, and calling attention to the danger in allowing fast riding on Main street to continue. We doubt not that the wheelmen themselves would be in favor of some legislation on the part of the council regulating the speed on at the least the principal streets, and determining what is necessary on the part of the wheelmen for the safety of others and themselves. There are only a few riders that would be at all affected by any regulations that council might fix. Most of them use judgment and care in riding and exercise all due precaution for the safety of others, riders, pedestrians, or persons driving. But there are some who do not, and they

are the ones who should be reached. Frequently, riders sweep down Main street, four and six abreast. The approach of such a platoon will frighten horses and is a menace to a novice who may be approaching on a wheel. The bicycle is recognized in law as a common vehicle and it is accorded the privileges of other vehicle as well as being regulated by the same restrictions, but an ordinance forbidding certain features is just as necessary as a fast driving ordinance. There is not a rider in this city who will not recognize the necessity of an ordinance embodying the following: bicycles required to be ridden always to the right of all vehicles; no more than two riders abreast; each bicycle fitted with a bell and a lamp at night. Delphos Herald, May 9, 1896 ————— Delphos Young Man Killed at Cloverdale Word reached Delphos Saturday, from Cloverdale, 15 miles north on the Clover Leaf, that a young man had been shot in the back from ambush, Friday afternoon. Henry Lang, 18 years old, a son of Ben Lang and a nephew of Henry and F.A. Lang of this city, was in the employee of Casper Holdgreve, a tile maker, at Cloverdale. Friday afternoon, young Lang drove to the Kitchen farm, 2 1/2 miles northwest of Cloverdale, after a load of corn fodder. Some time after, Mr. Kitchen saw the team wandering aimlessly about the field with the wagon half loaded with fodder. He investigated and found young Lang lying on top of the fodder unconscious, with a bullet hole in his back, directly between his shoulders, and the lines grasped in his hands. The young man was removed to his home and a party of men began an investigation. They found fresh tracks in the woods adjoining the field, at one place near the fence behind a tree

there were indications that someone had stood there and braced himself to discharge a gun. The tracks led into the woods and showed the owner had made long strides, as though running . The young man had no enemies that anyone was aware of, and the question now is, was he shot intentionally from ambush or was it accidentally by some hunter in the woods? The wound is supposed to have been made by a rifle ball. The unfortunate victim remained unconscious all night, and Saturday Dr. Hixon, of Dupont and an Ottawa surgeon probed for the ball, but were unable to locate it. At 2:15 p.m. Saturday, a telephone message was received here that the boy had died at 10 a.m. The citizens in the vicinity where the young man lived are very much excited and are after the perpetrators with blood hounds. If Lang was shot intentionally, he was probably mistaken for someone else. He was buried in the East Side Cemetery, Delphos. Delphos Herald, Jan. 21, 1897 ————— Aged Lady Dead Mrs. Lavina Rupert passed away Monday afternoon at her home in Marbletown, at the age of 85 years. Death was caused by paralysis and old age. The funeral will be held near Mendon, Wednesday. Mrs. Rupert was married before she was 15 years old and her husband was a soldier in the war of 1812. He has been dead for several years, and Mrs. Rupert has been receiving a widow’s pension. She was the mother of about sixteen children, most of them who are still living. Five of her sons fought in the war of the Rebellion to preserve the flag and the nation’s honor. There are few mothers who lent such valuable aid to the Federal army.

“If anyone tells you something strange about the world, something you had never heard before, do not laugh but listen attentively; make him repeat it, make him explain it; no doubt there is something there worth taking hold of.” — Georges Duhamel, French author (1884-1966)

Equal pay for equal work

BY US SENATOR SHERROD BROWN As parents, we all want our daughters to have the same opportunities as our sons. As a father of two girls, I’m tired of seeing Ohio women lose $16 billion in income each year because they still don’t earn equal pay for an equal day’s work. Ohioans work hard and hard work deserves fair pay, regardless of gender. Yet, according to a new report from the National Partnership for Women & Families, Ohio women who are employed full time are paid just 77 cents for every dollar paid to men, amounting to a yearly gap in wages of $10,430. That’s unconscionable. It’s been said time and again and remains true: equal work deserves equal pay. The report also found that if the gap between men’s and women’s wages in Ohio were closed, an Ohio woman working full time would have enough funds for approximately 1.7 more years of groceries, eight more months of mortgage and utilities payments, 15 more months of rent, or six more years worth of gas. With so many families struggling to pay their bills and feed their families, it is imperative that we take steps to ensure women are making the money they’ve earned.

I’m sure were all watching breathlessly as the massive manhunt ended in Massachusettes last night. I guess the moral of this story is to not mess with Boston. Something happens there and they just shut the city down and don’t quit until they find you. I found all the camera footage from the streets near the bombing a little disturbing. I guess “they” are “watching” us. The cameras were very helpful in getting the clues needed to find out who these guys were and they were located pretty quickly. If you think about it, they found two guys in a city of nearly a million in just a couple days. Still, it is a bit disturbing. I also found it troubling that the teen still at large and was Tweeting about hamburger or some such nonsense on Wednesday. I guess we just don’t get his mentality. The fact that someone so young can treat life with such casual disregard and cause such harm and then talk about a hamburger on Twitter. Very troubling. The people in the neighborhood where they had the suspect cornered didn’t seem to mind being kept in their homes too much. If it were me, I could stay inside a while and do my part to help locate this guy. Let’s hope when he’s caught they find out why this happened and if there are more of his group out there (or here). I still cringe when I see the footage of the bombs going off and the injured and dead. In a few seconds, all heck broke loose and so many were injured or killed. Thank goodness not all the bombs went off. I’m sure the intent of the brothers was to cause much more damage and harm. It actually seems like they failed in a way. Yes, some lost their lives and many were injured but it could have been on a much larger scale. The alphabet soup guys, the National Guard

You don’t mess with Boston

On the Other hand
and more than a hundred police officers captured the second suspect around 9 p.m. on Friday. People came out of their homes after a day of waiting and worrying and cheered, whistled and clapped when law enforcement made its way back out of the area. You don’t mess with Boston. Mother Nature didn’t get the message. Someone has played a cruel joke on me. I was ready to put away all my layering pieces of clothing and get out my short sleeves and proceed on to spring. Obviously Mother Nature didn’t get the message that it’s spring. Of course it is spring in Ohio. I saw a funny post on Facebook Friday afternoon that had a box of four pictures. The title was “Spring in Ohio.” The first one looked like a wonderful spring day, the second had people wading in knee-deep water, the third had the funnel cloud of a tornado and the fourth was a blizzard. How true. We had nearly all those things in the last two weeks. The four-letter word is still in the forecast so anything can happen. I was just so disappointed when I had to pull the heavy winter coat out again to walk little Ringo. He doesn’t seem to mind, of course, and takes his time, raising his face to the wind and taking big sniffs. So here we are again hunkering down because it’s just not nice outside. The sun is supposed to make an appearance today. I’m ready. The sun can make up for a lot.

Dear Editor, I am writing this letter in regards to the upcoming renewal levy for the Delphos Public Library. I am a retired teacher of 30 years and I am a big supporter of the library. I myself am an avid reader in my retirement and I borrow 3 to 4 books on average a week for leisure reading. I enjoy reading and love sharing the services that the library has offered me over the years. As a mother of three, I encouraged reading with my children at a young age and provided all three of my children with library cards, as well as had them involved in the many different reading programs. Now that my children are grown, I have six beautiful grandchildren that I can read stories to and encourage them to read. The Delphos Public Library has a wonderful staff that has always been able to meet my needs as a member of the library and they have gone above and beyond to help assist me with finding books. They also were able to help in educating me on using my KindleFire for access through the internet to the library. With all the updates in technology for the youth of today, reading may not be in the forefront but we need to educate and encourage reading as much as we can to increase learning and leisure. There are many services the library provides that are beneficial for all ages and we as a community need to work together to pass this levy to keep the library in operation. We need to remember how great we all felt when we were young and used our library card for the first time, opening up our world to learning, adventure, romance, fiction, non-fiction and educate the younger generations on the benefits our library has to offer. Please vote yes for the renewal levy May 7 and keep our library going! Thank you, Vicki Rinehart

CHARLESTON, S.C. — As the reporter said to the novelist: Why bother to make stuff up? For stories and characters, one needs only a pair of walking shoes in this city, where recent attentions have turned to two salacious stories. One concerns a murder-for-hire plot involving a banker, his wife, his lover’s ex-husband and his ex-lover’s husband’s cellmate. Not to be confused with his soul mate. No, that designation refers to the other story making rounds on the cocktail circuit. Yes, he’s back but maybe not for long. Mark Sanford, the former governor who disappeared for five days, allegedly to hike the Appalachian Trail only to find himself in the arms of his lover (now his fiancee), is discovering that not every kid gets a comeback. What is it about the shamed male politician that he seems unable to accept when it’s over? This is strictly rhetorical, obviously. Part of the answer is hubris. Another part is history: Voters generally are forgiving once a person confesses and repents. But key to general forgiveness is the forgiveness of the wronged spouse. If Mrs. forgives, Joe and Jane Public usually do too. The list of those who have sinned and recovered is too long for this space, though a couple serve the point — and at least one deserves special mention: Bill Clinton Despite his well-known peccadilloes, the former president has become a respected global figure in the wake of his impeachment by the House of Representatives (the Senate failed to convict) on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. His personal sins mostly forgiven, he has emerged with his

The governor, the soul mate and … The End

Brown Absent congressional action, it is estimated that at the current rate the wage gap is closing, women will not be paid equally for more than four decades. And if the pay gap continues, women will never be able to catch up. A lower starting salary doesn’t just mean a smaller paycheck—it means a smaller pension, a diminished 401(k), and smaller Social Security check benefits. The discrimination that begins at hiring continues for life. There’s nothing fair about that. That’s why I am continuing to fight for the Paycheck Fairness Act, legislation that would close loopholes that allow pay discrimination based on gender. Although John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act into law nearly 50 years ago, making it ille-

gal for employers to pay men and women different wages for the same work, women have made only minor gains against the salaries earned by men for performing the same work. With nearly 600,000 households in Ohio headed by women, it is urgent that women earn the pay they deserve. The Paycheck Fairness Act would strengthen the ability of women to fight for equal pay, provide for their families and children, and contribute to our state and local economies. Last week, we recognized Equal Pay Day—a day that shows how late into the current year women must work to catch up to what men earned in the prior year. We shouldn’t have to wait until April—four months into the year—for women to finally make the same amount of money that their male counterparts made the previous year. Ohio women are hard working. They get up early, stand on their feet all day, and then head home and take care of their children—they don’t ask for a handout. They don’t ask for a bailout. But they do ask for equal pay. We owe it to our mothers, our daughters, and women everywhere to continue to fight for equality and for the Paycheck Fairness Act.

Point of View
popularity largely intact. Perhaps the explanation lies in his overall likability as well as his good works through his foundation, not to mention a larger sense that he was unnecessarily persecuted for behaviors that were more or less familiar to (and ignored by) a majority of voters. At some point in the investigation, he became more sympathetic than his pursuers. Clinton did not, moreover, seek public office again. And, significantly, Hillary, her early protestations notwithstanding, stood by her man. Switch now to former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, who left Congress after accidentally tweeting a photo of his assets to his Twitter followers. Despite unfathomable embarrassment, Weiner now is considering a run for mayor of New York City. A recent poll shows him in second place in a hypothetical Democratic mayoral primary at 15 percent, behind City Council Speaker Christine Quinn at 26 percent. Again, Weiner’s wife, who was pregnant at the time of his topple, stayed with him. Lest Democrats feel unfairly singled out, we further note that Republican Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana has held his seat despite his intersection with prostitution. His longevity no doubt is attributable to his sincere repentance, constitu-

ent satisfaction and, importantly, his wife’s forgiveness. Which brings us back to Sanford. Not only did he abandon his state for five days during his walkabout, but he committed the unthinkable. He wept. No taking it like a man, this one. Without consideration for his wife and young sons, he referred to his paramour as his soul mate. Sanford didn’t even have the decency to resign from office, but finished his term and vanished for a couple of years only to re-emerge in pursuit of a fresh legacy. He recently won the Republican primary for an open congressional seat and faces Elizabeth Colbert-Busch (sister of Stephen Colbert) in a special election May 7. To many South Carolinians, especially women, Sanford’s candidacy is an embarrassment of Weineresque proportions. But if history is any guide, his candidacy is on life support. Not only did his former wife, Jenny Sanford, not stand by her man, she wrote a book, went on TV and recently took him to court for trespassing. This in the wake of his fiancee showing up at his primary victory party and appearing on stage with him and two of his sons, one of whom had not previously met their future stepmother. Sanford’s lack of empathy for his family, not to mention his impeachable judgment, should disqualify him from further public service, an opinion apparently shared by the Republican National Committee, which recently withdrew support for his candidacy. Where the wife goes, so go the people. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.

The Delphos Herald COLUMBUS GROVE — Host Columbus Grove swept both ends of its own Bulldog Track and Field Invitational on a windy and chilly Friday night at Clymer Stadium. On the girls side, the Lady Bulldogs barely outdistanced Shawnee by one point — 95.5-94.5 — in the 11-team tournament. Sydney McCluer won the 300-meter hurdles and the Lady Bulldogs’ 4x100-meter relay team were also champions. St. John’s and Fort Jennings were tied for fifth (with McComb) with 45 points, Jefferson was eighth (40) and Ottoville ninth (33). Other winners from local teams were St. John’s Alyssa Faurot (girls high jump), the Fort Jennings 4x200-meter girls relay and Ottoville’s

Jake Graham won the 1,600meter run, Derek Rieman the 300-meter hurdles, Caleb Grothaus the pole vault and Trevor Schroeder the shot put. The Grove 4x8 boys team also took first. Jefferson finished fourth (55), St. John’s fifth (48.5), Ottoville eighth (16) and Fort Jennings last (2) as a team. Jefferson senior Cody Biglow won the boys 110-meter hurdles and St. John’s senior Ben Youngpeter



Ruggiano’s HR in 9th sends Marlins over Reds 2-1
By JOE KAY The Associated Press CINCINNATI — Justin Ruggiano hit a solo homer off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning Friday night, sending the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 victory that snapped the Cincinnati Reds’ winning streak at four games. It was a stunning moment for the Marlins, who have the worst record in the majors at 4-13 and had only four homers — fewest in the majors — when Ruggiano connected off the Reds’ spotless closer for his second homer in two games. Chapman (2-1) hadn’t allowed a run in his eight previous appearances, giving up only three hits while fanning 13. Ruggiano connected on a 3-1 pitch, driving it deep to center for his third homer. No one else on the Marlins has more than one. It was only the seventh homer Chapman has allowed during his four seasons in the majors. Left-hander Mike Dunn (1-0) retired the last two batters in the eighth. Steve Cishek gave up a hit in the ninth while earning the Marlins’ first save of the season. Nick Green had three singles and scored the Marlins’ first run on a raw, wet night. It was 46 degrees at the first pitch and showers moved through during the game. Marlins rightfielder Giancarlo Stanton wore a ski mask under his cap. Reds starter Mat Latos remained winless in four starts this season, which include two blown saves behind him. He allowed one run on six hits and struck out 10, fanning pinchhitter Greg Dobbs with runners on second and third to end the Marlins’ seventh inning and keep it tied. Marlins starter Kevin Slowey remained winless in the majors since 2010, a streak that includes 10 losses, several injuries and very little help from his offense. The Marlins were shut out in his first two starts this season, and managed only one run in his third. This time, the major-leagues’ least-productive offense got two runners thrown out at the plate and managed one run while Slowey was in the game. He left after six innings, having allowed four hits. Slowey held down an offense that had scored 11 runs in each of its last two games. Shin-Soo Choo opened the

Reds’ first with a triple and scored on Joey Votto’s sacrifice fly. That was it for Cincinnati. By contrast, the Marlins got chances against Latos and wasted them. Miami got a run in the third but could have had more. Nick Green and Donovan Solano singled and Slowey advanced them with a sacrifice bunt. Placido Polanco singled to right for one run but Solano was thrown out at home by Jay Bruce. Juan Pierre opened the sixth with a double and advanced on a fly out. He was out at the plate when he tried to score on Stanton’s grounder to shortstop Zack Cozart with the infield drawn in. Pierre lowered his shoulder but catcher Ryan Hanigan held on after making the tag. NOTES: The Marlins designed struggling reliever John Maine for assignment and called up RH Tom Koehler from Triple-A New Orleans, where he was a starter. He’ll move into Maine’s role as a long reliever for now. … University of Cincinnati football coach Tommy Tuberville threw a ceremonial pitch. … Latos doubled with two outs in the fifth — his first hit in seven at-bats this season — but was stranded. champion has only qualified first nine times — one of them came at Kansas in 2005. Indeed, the man behind the wheel of the No. 20 Toyota has had plenty of success at the 1 1/2-mile tri-oval. Kenseth won the fall race at Kansas and hasn’t finished outside the top 10 since having engine trouble in the 2009 race. He’s also finished in the top five at the track five times. Edwards will be starting on the front row for the first time at Kansas after qualifying with a lap of 191.748. Stenhouse was bumped to third after spending most of the day with the quickest lap. Joey Logano will start 22nd and Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski will go off 33rd. Kyle Busch slapped the wall later in practice hard enough that he had to go to a backup car. He rallied to qualify fifth in his No. 18 Toyota.
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Friday night was definitely not a good day to play baseball at Wildcat Field, with howling winds toward right-center field, cold temperatures and just an overall miserable day. Junior right-hander Tyler Rice didn’t let that bother him as he pitched an effective six frames in pacing the Wildcats to an 11-8 Northwest Conference triumph. Rice ran his record to 5-0 (92 pitches, 55 strikes) in ceding four hits, three runs (2 earned), walking one and fanning four. “To do what he did today in these conditions is a great effort. They canceled a major-league game today in Chicago because of conditions like this,” Jefferson coach Doug Geary said. “He doesn’t have the 85-mph fastball but he can pitch. He puts the ball where he wants to: in and out, up and down. If you can throw the ball where you want, you are going to get a lot of people out.” He gave up a run in the top of the first as Michael Bauer (3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 doubles) led off with a double to deep left, advanced on a bounceout by Javier Gonzales and scored on Quentin Vance’s bloop to short right for a 1-0 edge. Ross Thompson led off the Jefferson (9-4, 2-0) half of the frame against Paulding starter Kyle Kauser (0-2; 3 1/3 innings, 11 hits, 10 runs, 9 earned, 1 walk 1 strikeout) with a liner to left, stole second and scored as Zach Ricker doubled to center. Austin Jettinghoff’s grounder into left put runners at the corners. Ricker scored as Zach Kimmett forced Jettinghoff at second and he remained at first. “We have a lot of young guys in there, we played three freshmen today. We actually got off to a lead but then surrendered it,” Paulding coach Mike Leach noted. “These conditions were brutal and that’s part of the learning process for a young team; you have to play, no matter the conditions.” Jefferson made it 4-1 in the second. Jordan Herron beat out a nibbler to third and Seth Wollenhaupt singled to center. Gage Townsend-Schleeter laid down a sacrifice bunt to advance both runners and both scored as Thompson (3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs) grounded sharply into center. Paulding (0-7, 0-2 NWC) got two runs in the top of the third. Corbin Edwards walked to start it and was running as Bauer bounced out. Gonzales looped a double to center, plating Edwards. He advanced on a wild pitch and an out later, scored as Damien Egnor got aboard on an error to reduce the deficit to 4-3. Jefferson answered with one in its half-frame. With one down, Drew Kortokrax was safe on a throwing error, advanced on a pair of wild pitches with Zavier Buzard at the plate and scored on his groundout to make it 5-3, Delphos. Herron (2-for-2) lined a hit into center but was left stranded. Justin Adams got aboard on an error with one down in the fourth and advanced on a bounceout by Alex Arellano but no farther. The Wildcats sent 11 to the dish in the fourth. With one down, Thompson doubled to center. Ricker was hit by a pitch and Jettinghoff (2-for-4) blooped a hit to short center to load the bases. Kimmett walked to force home Thompson and a Kortokrax blooper to center plated Ricker for a 7-3 spread. Buzard grounded a knock into left to score Jettinghoff and Kimmett to make it 9-3 — pushing Kortokrax at third and taking second on the throw home — and finish Kauser on the mound (for Arellano; 2 2/3 IPs, 1 hit, 1 earned run, 5 BBs, 4 Ks). He threw a wild pitch with Herron at the plate to score Kortokrax and put Buzard at third. Herron walked and Wollenhaupt was plunked to reload the sacks but the next two batters were retired to end the inning at 10-3. Bauer beat out an infield hit to third in the Panther fifth but was picked off base by Rice. The hosts finished their scoring in the fifth. With one gone, Jettinghoff walked and Kimmett doubled to deep left. Kortokrax walked to load the bases. An out later, Tyler Wrasman walked to force in Jettinghoff for an 11-3 scoreboard. However, Wollenhaupt bounced out to end the frame. Egnor got aboard to start the Paulding sixth on an error and moved up on a grounder by Kauser. An out later, he got to third as Adams was safe on another miscue but Rice got the third out. Townsend-Schleeter got a free pass to open the Delphos sixth but got caught stealing. Paulding made its rally in the top of the seventh. With one down against reliever Drew Kortokrax, Bauer doubled to right center and stole third. Gonzales walked. Vance (2-for4) doubled to right center, scoring Bauer, moving Gonzales to third and bringing Tyler Wrasman to the mound. He was greeted with a 2-run double to deep center by Egnor to make it 11-6, Jefferson. Kauser beat out an infield hit to put runners on the corners; as he took off for second, Gerod Harder looped a single to short left to plate Egnor and again put runners on the corners. Adams bounced out to score Kauser for an 11-8 deficit. Arellano lined a hit to right to again put runners on the corners and bring Thompson to the mound. He promptly fanned Edwards to end the contest and earn the save. “We hit the ball well today. We got the lead early and gave a couple of runs back but we kept adding on,” Geary added. “We still aren’t as consistent at the plate as we’d like but we are getting there. We made enough plays in the field to be successful; we had a couple of errors but those happen at every level. You have to make the routine ones.” Leach just wants his charges to get better. “We did that. We got our freshman pitcher in there — Alex — and he did a nice job in relief,” Leach added. “Jefferson hit the ball hard today. We got too far behind and we did make a late charge; we just waited a little too long.” Jefferson is set to play at Leipsic 11 a.m. today for doubleheader action but the game may be moved to Wildcat Field. Paulding hosts LCC 5 p.m. Monday.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report CENTRAL OHIO Deer Creek Lake (Fayette/Madison/Pickaway counties) - White bass males are being caught at this 1,287-acre lake south of Columbus. As water temperature increases, more males and females will move up the creek to spawn. Fish the creek north of Cooks-Yankeetown Road, using small jigs and twisters, or small rooster tails; most of these fish will measure 8-12 inches. Crappie can be caught around submerged woody cover using minnows suspended under a bobber; these must be 9 inches long or longer to keep. hannel catfish can be taken on chicken livers, shrimp, nightcrawlers and cut shad. Madison Lake (Madison County) - This 104acre lake southwest of Columbus is a good place to pick up some spring crappie; use jigs or minnows suspended by a bobber around wood to catch a mess of these tasty fish. Fish will move north and shallower as the water warms; many are over 10 inches with some 12 inches long. Channel catfish are also plentiful here; fish cut bait around wood and target the creek mouth after a rain event. Electric motors only. NORTHWEST OHIO Sandusky River (Sandusky County) - The river level is high and the water clarity is poor; recent walleye fishing has been poor due to the water level but some white bass have been caught. Levels make the river difficult to fish at this time;

anglers should use extreme caution. As levels recede, the bite should pick up. The best areas to try are around the Miles Newton Bridge and between Rodger Young and Walsh Park. Maumee River (Lucas County) - The river level is near flood stage and walleye fishing has been poor as a result, making fishing difficult; Bluegrass Island is not accessible at this time. Depending on the weather, the river may be fishable and the bite should pick up later this week; however, the water quality will likely be poor and anglers should use extreme caution. Once the level begins to recede, try the Orleans Park and White Street Landing area. Reminders for both rivers: Black bass are protected by a 14-inch minimum length limit at all times. … Walleye have a 15-inch minimum size limit for the entire season and the daily bag limit is 4 fish through April 30; do NOT keep any walleye shorter than 15 inches, so please take a ruler with you. Most anglers use a floating jig-head fished on an 18- to 24-inch leader with a 1/4- to 1/2-oz. weight depending on the water current, with the best success tipping the jig-head with a twister tail of white or chartreuse color. … Daily bag limits for walleye will be set on May 1 of each year; a special publication announcing the new daily limits will be available at Wildlife District offices, the web site and license outlets. NORTHEAST OHIO West Branch Reservoir (Portage County) This 2,300-acre lake located just east of Ravenna offers over 40 miles of shoreline fishing as well as two boat ramps which are both accessible from Cable Line Road. Anglers fishing west of Rock

Fish Ohio

Springs Road have seen good catches of crappie 9-12 inches; fish jig-heads with grub tails tipped with minnows in 13-20 feet of water about 6-10 feet down. Walleye anglers are catching fair numbers, one reporting #10 husky jerks as the lure of choice; reports are that fishing is best when the sun is shining and there is little or no wind. Boat anglers new to this lake should call Wildlife District Three at 330-644-2293 to talk to a fisheries biologist since it can be tough to navigate due shallow spots throughout. A map can be viewed at www.wildohio.com. Pymatuning Reservoir (Ashtabula County) - Walleye populations are improving for the fifth year in a row thanks for a combined effort between the DOW and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. In 2008, the agencies began stocking fingerlings instead of fry, which has vastly improved the survival rate over the last few years; the improved stocking strategy, in addition to providing underwater artificial reefs and structures, has provided impressive opportunities for anglers. The walleye and crappie bites have been fairing well lately as the water temperature continues to increase; the last report indicates temps in the mid- to upper-30s. An occasional muskie has been reported as well. Pymatuning Lake is the largest inland lake in Ohio at 16,349 acres; the fishable portion (i.e., excluding the sanctuary east of Hartstown Road in Linesville, Pa.) totals 14,334 acres; for additional information, contact Wildlife District Three at 330-644-2293 or visit www.wildohio.com.

The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Kan. — It’s Kyle Busch’s world once again in NASCAR and everybody else is just sharing track space with him. Until this weekend at Kansas, of course. Then everyone gets to see just how far Busch has really come in the last 17 months. Busch won both the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series races in Texas last weekend, his second sweep this season, in a huge comeback at the site of his 2011 NASCAR suspension for deliberately wrecking Ron Hornaday Jr. in a Truck Series race. Now he carries all that momentum into Kansas, his worst track on the circuit. Busch is winless at Kansas in 11 career starts, has only two top-10 finishes and wrecked there during Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship races in 2007 and 2010. He also crashed last season. Still, Busch just picked up his first career win at Texas Motor Speedway and he wants to do the same at Kansas, where his average finish is 21st and is one of only six active tracks where he’s yet to win a Cup race. “It’s not that you might not like a track or might not like a race … it’s just a matter of trying to figure it out,” Busch said. “Once you kind of get it figured out or get the right situations kind of lined up, you can have a shot. I look at (Kansas) a lot like Michigan. That’s a place where I struggled for a long time, but we finally were able to break through there for a win two years ago.” In years past, Busch has dreaded going to Kansas. Not this year. A year after grabbing just one win across all three NASCAR national series, Busch is red hot again. He’s got two wins in Cup and has won four of the six Nationwide races. He’s also got five top-5 finishes in both series. Running well cures all driver ailments, so Busch’s mood is obviously considerably better of late. But team owner Joe Gibbs said Busch’s maturity has been better for quite some time. “I think back to last year at the end of the year, Kyle probably had some of the most bitter disappointments, I think, that’s happened to us in 22 years,” Gibbs said. “We missed the Chase. We had Watkins Glen won, go to the last lap and get in somebody else’s oil. We had some issues mechanically during the year that cost us. “I think last year at the end of the year, Kyle really handled all of those things about as good as you could handle them. I think it showed real maturity and I think that kind of set the course for this year.” So Busch heads into Kansas with an open mind and last year’s race — when he was leading before he spun on the new track surface — fresh in his memory. “I’m looking forward to Kansas with the roll that we’re on,” he added. “I thought we were running decent there last year … so, hopefully, we have a good car like that this time around and I don’t make a mistake like that. But, you know, Kansas is newly repaved. It’s got a winter on it now, so we’ll see how that changes things. But I still expect it to be fast.”
Drivers, track to honor victims of Boston bombings: Kansas Speedway and several drivers plan to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings during this weekend’s NASCAR races. The track is working with NASCAR on a moment of silence before Sunday’s Sprint Cup race to remember the three people killed and more than 170 wounded in Monday’s blasts. Michael Waltrip, who ran the Boston Marathon in 2000, plans to honor them with

special door numbers painted on his three Sprint Cup entries. The numbers will replicate the style of bib numbers pinned on the nearly 30,000 runners in this year’s marathon. Waltrip explained: “It was a great moment of pride when they pinned the Boston Marathon bib on me, so it would be great to pin bib numbers on our races cars this week in Kansas.” Conway back in an Indy car after walking away L O N G BEACH, Calif. — Mike Conway is certain it will take him only one lap to get up to speed at Long Beach and he believes he’s a threat to win Sunday’s race. “That’d be good. I could retire on top,” Conway said. Yes, the 29-year-old Conway was joking about retirement. But he knows there may not be another IndyCar Series race for him after this weekend. And he knows that it was his decision alone that put him in this position. Seven months ago, during a test session for the IndyCar season finale at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Conway decided he just didn’t want to race ovals anymore. The Englishman missed most of the 2010 season with serious injuries to his back and leg suffered in a last-lap crash at the Indianapolis 500; he was also in the 2011 season finale at Las Vegas when Dan Wheldon was killed. The next oval race after that was last year’s Indy 500 and Conway was involved in an accident with Will Power in which his car turned on its side against the fence. So when Conway, who had never before raced on ovals until he joined IndyCar in 2009, couldn’t get comfortable in the car on Fontana’s 2-mile oval, he simply gave up his seat. “When you can’t give it 100 percent and you can’t wait for the race to end, and you just want to get it out of the way, then you shouldn’t be doing it,” Conway recalled. “I didn’t realize it until I got in the car at Fontana. I just wanted to get out and I didn’t want to get back in. Then it hit me that I felt that strongly about it.” But Conway doesn’t want to give up IndyCar outright and if he could find a team willing to let him run just road and street courses, he would jump at the opportunity. Right now, the only opportunity came from Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, which will field a third car Sunday at Long Beach for Conway. Long Beach just happens to be the site of Conway’s 2011 victory, his only career IndyCar win. “There will obviously be people who are race ready having competed in the first two events but I have been thinking about Long Beach since the start of the year,” he said. “I don’t feel like I am rusty.” RLL, which has 1-race sponsorship from Blu eCigs for Long Beach, let Conway prepare for this weekend with a 1-day test at Barber Motorsports Park. Conway said he was up to speed after just one lap. Conway also has race time under his belt this year. He’s running the full season in the FIA World Endurance Championship sports car series for G-Drive Racing with Delta-ADR and drove a full stint last weekend in the season opener at Silverstone. But that WEC schedule has just eight races and Conway would love to fill his time with some more IndyCar events. “I know it’s hard for a team to want to give me a seat and then swap the driver out on the ovals but I’d like to try to do more IndyCar. I love the series,” Conway added. “I’d love to do more with the Rahal team. I’d race every weekend if I could; it’s just a matter of finding an owner willing to do something.” An open letter: With the annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pro/Celebrity Race part of the IndyCar weekend, Target Chip Ganassi Racing drivers Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon took it upon themselves to offer this year’s field some “unsolicited” advice. Although the field includes defending race winner Adam Carolla, celebrities Wanda Sykes, Michelle Rodriguez, Jesse Metcalfe, Jenna Elfman and Rutledge Wood might want to pay attention to the words offered by the drivers with six combined IndyCar championships between them. “Think you can just put on a fire suit and slide into a race car for 10 adrenaline-pumping laps just like that? Not so fast,” they wrote. “Most of you haven’t logged time in the seat of an Indy car going 230 mph, so we’ve come up with a few pointers to get you race-ready. Except you, Rodriguez — we were pretty impressed by your skills in “The Fast and the Furious.” Feel free to skip this. The rest of you, read every word.”

Among the recommendations: — Wear comfortable, casual clothes under your driving suit. Heels (yes, even sneaker wedges) would be tricky; we say go with closed-toe shoes. — Do some leg presses. And by some, we mean a lot. Braking and steering a race car — the two biggest sustained functions during a race — is like doing leg reps while a hyper Rottweiler plays tug-of-war with your pant leg. You have to keep up the workout despite the crazy turbulence. — Practice your breathing. When you’re experiencing high g-forces, it can be really hard to breathe. It’s a total-body workout, both mentally and physically. — Enjoy your time in the driver’s seat but don’t overdo it! Stay safe and have fun. — If you win, just go ahead and pour the whole bottle of milk right over your head. Feels phenomenal, looks really cool. No sophomore slump: With so many questions about a potential “sophomore slump,” Courtney Force couldn’t help but worry about this season. “It was getting in my head after doing all these interviews, everyone is going, ‘Going into your second year, you think you’re going to have a sophomore slump’?” she recalled. “Wait, I didn’t know about that. I hope not.” So far, so good for Force, who heads into this weekend’s NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway in Concord leading the Funny Car standings. She won the season-opener at Pomona and used a runner-up finish two weeks ago in Las Vegas to move to the top of the standings. “It’s definitely a good feeling to come out and be in the points lead only the fourth race in,” she said. “I’m definitely working twice as hard because I think we’ve got a good team, I think we have a lot of potential.” Her next challenge is at zMax with its unique 4-lane configuration, which Force embraced after her first visit last season. “I love that it’s different,” she said. “Although it’s going to be nerve-racking because there’s so much going on, so many other cars, lanes to focus on, the Christmas tree to really kind of relearn at this track.” And she has the added job this weekend of counseling her sister Brittany, a Top Fuel rookie experiencing her first trip to Four-Wide Nationals. “I keep talking to Brittany about it going in,” she added. “It’s a little bit overwhelming for a driver. So I’m a little nervous for her. There’s so much excitement. There’s so much horsepower. It’s so much louder at this racetrack with four lanes. It’s still kind of cool she’s been able to come to me for advice and I’ve been able to talk to her. I try not to shove it down her throat and throw a bunch of advice at her because I know how overwhelming it can be the first year out.” Rallycross opener: The 2013 Global Rallycross season opens Sunday at the X-Games in Brazil, the first of nine events on this year’s schedule. But this weekend’s field features drivers from nearly every major form of motorsports, including 2004 Indianapolis 500 winner Buddy Rice and NASCAR drivers Scott Speed, Nelson Piquet Jr. and Steve Arpin. They’ll join 2011 Global Rallycross and 2-time Formula Drift Champion Tanner Foust and 10-time X-Games gold medalist Travis Pastrana in Sunday’s race. Entering its fourth season, Global Rallycross combines circuit racing, off-road racing and rally competition in production-based, small cars. Drivers progress through a series of heat races to advance into a final race, where winner takes all. Raikkonen fastest in 2nd practice at Bahrain GP SAKHIR, Bahrain — Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen drove the fastest time in the second practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix, followed by the Red Bulls of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel on Friday. Raikkonen, who won the season-opening Australian GP, was 0.03 seconds faster than Webber and 0.12 quicker than Vettel. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso was fourth while his teammate Felipe Massa, who topped the charts in the first practice, settled for sixth. Force India’s Paul di Resta was fifth. Several drivers had trouble with the hot and dry conditions, including Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton, who finished 10th, and McLaren’s Jenson Button, who came in 11th — the latest setback for a team that has struggled to be competitive. The session was largely uneventful, except for Sauber’s Esteban Gutierrez clipping his tire on the wing of Caterham’s Charles Pic, forcing the Mexican back to the pits. Gutierrez has been slow to adjust to F1 and was penalized five grid places for the Bahrain race, after he was blamed for a collision with Force India’s Adrian Sutil in China.

SOUTHEAST OHIO Dillon Reservoir (Muskingum County) - Anglers can find both white and black crappie in this 1,043-acre lake; try a minnow under a bobber in shallow waters over submerged structure. Hybridstriped bass can still be caught in both the lake and the tail water. Fish up to 19 inches have been seen in recent surveys; try minnow-imitating crankbaits or live shad under a bobber, targeting different depths until the fish are located. Saugeyes are being stocked in the reservoir, so anglers can expect good tailwater fishing this time of year; yellow, white, green or chartreuse jig-heads with twister tails have produced successful results in the past. Lake Hope (Vinton County) As water temperature increases, so has the fishing action in this 120acre lake. Anglers have had success fishing for largemouth bass using a variety of artificial baits, including shallow-running crankbaits. For crappie and bluegill, fish live bait including wax worms and nightcrawlers under a bobber. A decent rainfall will also create some great conditions for channel cats; try the bottom using cut bait in the evening or early mornings, especially as temperatures begin to climb. SOUTHWEST OHIO Adams Lake (Adams County) Anglers are catching trout by using wax worms, Berkley Power Bait or corn about 2-3 feet deep. Cast into areas with submerged trees and brush. C. J. Brown Reservoir (Clark County) - Walleye fishing continues to improve. Try early-morning boat-angling using jigs tipped with a nightcrawler over the mid-lake humps and in the north end to catch some nice walleye; remember there is a 15-inch minimum size limit and daily bag of six. Bluegill can be caught around the rocky shorelines of the dam and the marina. Also, try fishing the wooden piling structures near the boat ramp and camp-

ground. Use wax or red worms for bluegill under a bobber; anglers can still catch white bass along the rocky shorelines using small spinners, jigs or minnows. Indian Creek Wildlife Area (Brown County) - Try your luck on bluegill and sunfish using red/earth/ wax worms about 2-3 feet deep. The Family Fishing Pond is best and is marked and accessible from Campbell Road in the wildlife area. Tawawa Lake (Shelby County) - Located near Sidney, this lake was stocked with rainbow trout ranging from 10-13 inches Thursday. This is a 4-acre lake; no boats allowed. Try fishing for trout with maggots, wax worms, redworms, trout dough baits, minnows and spinners. Davis Lake (Auglaize County) - Rainbow trout, measuring 10-13 inches, was stocked Friday. This 13-acre site is owned by the City of St. Marys and is located at the Solid Waste and Recycling Center, 15500 River Rd. Hours of operation are during daylight only; a fishing license is required. Fishing will be from the shoreline only; no boats allowed. The statewide bag limit of 5 trout per day will apply here. Little Miami River (Hamilton County) - Anglers are having success catching white bass in the tributaries; try green or chartreuse twister tails. Channel cats are being caught on chicken livers under a bobber. OHIO RIVER Cincinnati area and Clermont County - Anglers are reporting some success in the tributaries on worms as well as twister tails tipped with minnows; catches are mostly bluegill and white bass. For Ohio River conditions go to: http:// newweb.erh.noaa.gov/ahps2/index. php?wfo=iln. Meldahl Pool Area - Sauger can be caught in the early morning and later in the evening when the temperatures are a little cooler; a simple minnow should be sufficient. R.C. Byrd tail waters - Spring is a great time to start reeling in

hybrid-striped bass in the 10- to 20-inch range. Minnows, flukes, white jigs and spoons can all be used; try jigging off the bottom best spots in previous years have been at the wall and at the end of the riprap. For the angler interested in catching sauger or walleye, try white jigs and minnows jigging slowly off the bottom along the riprap. LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie through April 30 is 4 fish per angler with a 15-inch minimum size limit. … The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. … The trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish per angler; The minimum size limit is 12 inches. … The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit is 5 fish per angler with a 14-inch minimum size limit. Walleye: These have been caught by trolling and jigging over the past week (as of Tuesday). Trollers have caught fish around the outer cans of the Camp Perry firing range with “D” can being best; Rapala deep husky jerks have been the most consistent crankbait. Fish have been caught by jigging nearshore W of the reefs and also on some of the reefs within the Camp Perry firing range; purple or green hair jigs have been the lure of choice for jiggers. Please use caution when boating in cold water. Steelhead: Stream and pier anglers have an excellent opportunity to catch quality-sized steelhead trout through May. … Where to catch them: Mainstem rivers and tribs have high to very high flows and are beginning to recede. Smaller tribs and rivers will fish first, maybe by late Sunday. Fresh steelhead are well-distributed throughout the stream reaches. Spin-fishing anglers were using eggs, marabou jigs tipped with maggots or plastic curly tails, live bait like red worms, nightcrawlers, or minnows, or small spinners and crankbaits. Fly-fishers were using

streamers, egg patterns including sucker spawn, woolly buggers and other nymphs. Vermilion River: Fish from the Vermilion boat ramp up to Birmingham. Rocky River: Fish from the metroparks marina to the dam above the Cedar Point Rd. pools. Cuyahoga River: Fish in Cleveland Harbor, at the SR 82 dam (but not immediately downstream because of the bald eagle nest) and upstream to the Edison Gorge Dam. Chagrin River: Fish from the soccer fields upstream to the South Chagrin Reservation metropark. Grand River: Fish from the Fairport breakwall up to Harpersfield Dam. Arcola Creek: Fish the river mouth, estuary and creek in the metropark. Ashtabula River: Fish from the river mouth up through Indian Trails Park. Conneaut Creek: Fish from the river mouth up to the state line. Don’t forget the daily bag limit of 2 steelhead trout and salmon in the aggregate through May 15. There are many public access areas on Ohio streams. If you are on private property, you must have landowner permission. Don’t trespass! Private landowners have the right to restrict access on their property. In Ohio, you can gain access to the stream from public access points but the private land ownership includes their land under the stream. The streams listed above are navigable streams, meaning you can float a boat through them to fish; however, you cannot get out of your boat and stand on private property to fish unless you have the landowner’s permission. The water temperature is 42 degrees off of Toledo and 42 degrees off of Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine forecast. … Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating.

nothing wrong with accepting Sam as he is and enjoying the fun times you have together. Otherwise, please stop trying to turn him into Mr. Right, and look for a man who b e t t e r meets your requirements. D e a r Annie: I was hospitalized with pneumonia and Mailbox then diagnosed with COPD and atrial fibrillation, for which I was put on daily meds. I am also diabetic. I am now home and taking breathing treatments and allergy shots, plus my normal heart and COPD meds. I find that I cannot tolerate strong smells: perfume, paint, fireplaces, scented candles, etc. The problem is my husband, “Carl.” He is a smoker. He had a heart attack several years ago, and we both quit at that time. I haven’t had a cigarette since, but he started up again. He doesn’t smoke in the house, but he cannot get it through his head that when he comes in after smoking, he still has a strong cigarette odor, and I frequently have severe coughing attacks, shortness of breath and chest pain. He apologizes, but won’t quit. My doctor has suggested several options to help Carl quit, but nothing has

ignore this? We do go to a lot of places and have fun, and we both love playing golf. — Sad in California Dear Sad: You have unrealistic expectations about Sam. He enjoys your company, but he’s not ready to settle down. He wants the freedom to stay in touch with his exes, he doesn’t much care for cats, and he’s not interested in marriage. There is

an effect. I know my future includes being on oxygen. I am 65, and these constant attacks are wearing me down. We’ve been married for 25 years, and I love Carl. I have a difficult time thinking that he’s so selfish. Any suggestions? — He Just Doesn’t Care Dear Doesn’t Care: We think Carl cares, but he’s so addicted to tobacco that he’s unable to contemplate quitting. First, ask Carl if you can go with him to speak to his doctor. Then consider an area of the house where Carl can change his clothes and/or shower before being around you. He also can try electronic cigarettes, which still pose a health risk, but his clothes won’t reek as much. But if Carl refuses to protect you from his addiction, one of you may need to leave in order for you to maintain your health. Sorry. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Heartbroken,” whose daughter committed suicide and whose mother is unsympathetic. The only people who truly understand what it is to lose a child are other parents who have. Thank you for suggesting The Compassionate Friends (compassionatefriends.org). It is a beautiful organization filled with parents who care. We will give her the hugs and compassion she needs. — Green Bay, Wis.

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, APRIL 21, 2013 In the year ahead, be on the lookout for outmoded ventures that you can transform into something new and useful. Once you begin searching, chances are you’ll uncover quite a few. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -You are likely to get an opportunity to become better acquainted with someone whom you always liked but haven’t had much of a chance to associate with. It behooves you to capitalize on it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Primarily because of your tenacity when facing obstacles, you’ll meet with a lot of success. Capitalize on your gains for all they’re worth. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your dependents might need to be managed with a firm hand. You’ll instinctively know how to assert yourself without being unduly harsh or unkind. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your basic, sound business sense could put you in the profit column. As long as you follow it, you shouldn’t have any trouble financially. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Because of the excellent way you handle your responsibilities, your colleagues will find you an admirable person. Others can’t help copying your style. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be charitable and compassionate with those who are less fortunate than you. However, you must also be realistic as to what extent you’re able to help them. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Don’t be surprised if others turn to you when they need help. You’ll be remarkably adroit at coming up with solutions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You are likely to have a slight edge when it comes to competitive interactions. Keep this in mind in case an upstart tries to throw his or her weight around. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have a relationship that is worth maintaining. Make some time to communicate with this person, even if he or she lives far away. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- The probability of achieving your objectives looks to be quite promising, but you might not score on your first try. If you find yourself stymied, try again. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Someone who admires and respects you might make a suggestion that could be a tough pill to swallow. You’d be smart to bite the bullet and heed the advice. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There could be some hidden benefits to helping put another at ease. This person will tell everyone how you bailed him or her out of an awkward situation. MONDAY, APRIL 22, 2013 In coming months, you are likely to play a minor but rewarding role in an innovative enterprise. There’s a fair amount of risk, but there’s also a lot to gain. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Be extremely careful about what you say. Don’t talk about anything meant only for select ears, lest you spill the beans about something very private. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It behooves you to tie up all loose ends, because anything left dangling could cause you a big headache. If you think you can’t complete something, don’t start it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -There’s a chance that the restlessness you feel could be more mental than physical. Assuage this affliction by speaking with a companion who always has something interesting to say. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Go out of your way to mind your spending, especially where nonessentials are concerned. There’s a good chance you could have a large leak in your wallet. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Appearances are always important, especially if you hope to inspire and/ or control others in some manner. To be a leader, you must look like one. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Your intuition is in good form, provided you carefully assess what it’s telling you. Use your logic in tandem with your hunches, and you’ll be hard to stop. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Be open-minded and receptive when socializing with friends. You may find conversations to be unusually meaningful, with valuable information being exchanged. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A major goal is achievable if you focus your efforts on it. Be careful not to spread your energy too thin, or nothing will come of it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A number of new opportunities are likely to come your way if you broaden your horizons. Try to develop some new interests so you can meet new people. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- There’s no need to be anxious about change, because it could broaden your horizons. Most shifting conditions tend to work for your benefit. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Try to keep in mind that there are always two sides to every story, because if you don’t, you could jump to an erroneous conclusion when you learn some unpleasant information. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Be realistic about the tasks you undertake. Unless you’re discerning about what you can accomplish, you could easily get in a heap of trouble.

between 10-20 meteors per hour,” Edwards added. In 1982, the Earth passed through a heavy cloud left by the comet and it was reported to be a 90-meteor-per-hour shower that year. In 1803, it was such a large amount falling during the peak, it alarmed many people. Comets are usually made primarily from ice, along with dust, rocks and frozen gases. The persistent trails are made of gases and dust and the dust particles are what we see as a meteor rips through the sky at roughly 20 - 30,000 mph. Those viewing the spectacular show should not have any issues with an interfering moon or other celestial bodies. Edwards said that Star Vega should not interfere with viewing the Lyrid’s; it should make it helpful for beginners to grasp where in the sky the Lyrid’s will be coming from. As a general rule, the higher that Vega climbs into the sky, the more meteors that observers will see. That’s why the greatest numbers of meteors generally fly in the dark hours before dawn. In addition, the moon will be off to the southwest and should not impact the viewing too much. “By 3 a.m., the moon will be below the hori-


zon,” Edwards detailed. “This should be the best possible time to view them with no other bright light sources in the sky. Watch for upcoming celestial events this year. Edwards says the two best yearly meteor showers are the Perseid’s, which displays up to 60 meteors per hour. In August, L.A.S. holds an annual Perseid’s viewing at Kendrick Woods in conjunction with Johnny Appleseed Park District (JAPD). There is also a viewing at Kendrick of the Geminid’s meteor shower in early December with up to 120 multicolored meteors flying through the sky. “Seasky.org has a great astronomical calendar each year with every minor and major event coming up,” he added. “There are some cool events this year like the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter.” At sunset on May 28, Venus and Jupiter will be within a degree of each other with Mercury close by. In October, Comet ISON will make an appearance and will be visible with the naked eye. In November, astronomers hope it will be bright enough to see in the daylight.

familes as ICU Manager.” In July 2002, the Ohio Donor Registry was established by the Ohio State Legislature to make it easier for aspiring donors to get registered. If interested, LifeLine recommends donors speak with their families to make them more comfortable with their decision. There are three ways to register: • Online (with valid Ohio driver’s license or photo identification); • Fill out and mail in an Ohio Donor Registry Enrollment Form; or • Say yes when you visit

the Ohio BMV to receive or renew your driver’s license or identification card. According to Life Line of Ohio, in the U.S., 28,051 lives were saved by organ donation in 2012, while 5,963 lives were lost waiting for a transplant. More than 1 million people benefit from tissue implants each year. In Ohio, 3,455 people, 790 in central Ohio, are on the waiting list. In 2012, 172 Ohioans died waiting, which averages out to one person every other day. Also in 2012, 1,200 lives were saved by 297 Ohioans who chose to be organ donors and 1,885 were given improved quality of life through tissue donations.


ly wounded another officer, authorities said. After a tense, all-day manhunt and house-to-house search by thousands of SWAT team officers with rifles and armored vehicles, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was cornered in a homeowner’s yard, where he exchanged gunfire with police while holed up in a boat, authorities said. He was taken away on a stretcher and was hospitalized in serious condition with unspecified injuries, police said. Just before 9 p.m., Boston police announced via Twitter that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was in custody. They later wrote: “CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody.” The news was met with

Boston (Continued from page 1)

jubilation across the Boston area. A cheer went up from a crowd of bystanders in Watertown. Boston Mayor Tom Menino tweeted “We got him,” along with a photo of himself talking to the police commissioner. Police said three other people were taken into custody for questioning at an off-campus housing complex at the University of the Massachusetts at Dartmouth where the younger man may have lived. Up until the younger man’s capture, it was looking like a grim day for police. As night fell, they announced that they were scaling back the hunt and lifting the stay-indoors order across Boston and some of its suburbs because they had come up empty-handed.

But then a break came in a Watertown neighborhood when a homeowner saw blood on his boat, pulled back the tarp and saw the bloody suspect inside, police said. The search for the younger brother all but paralyzed the Boston area for much of the day. Officials shut down all mass transit, including Amtrak trains to New York, advised businesses not to open, and warned close to 1 million people in the entire city and some of its suburbs to stay inside and unlock their doors only for uniformed police. Around midday, the suspects’ uncle Ruslan Tsarni of Montgomery Village, Md., pleaded on television: “Dzhokhar, if you are alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness.”

can get the right services to your location. Never hang up You may have called 9-1-1 by accident, or your situation may have resolved itself, but it is important to let the 9-1-1 operator know this. If you end the call abruptly, the folks at the 9-1-1 center are going to assume that something has gone very wrong and will either call you back or send help anyway. This will take away from the center’s ability to take calls and dispatch services to on-going emergencies, so make sure the 9-1-1 call taker tells you it is ok to disconnect before you hang up. And keep in mind that the call taker can dispatch responders to your location without disconnecting from the call, so, until you are instructed to do otherwise, make sure to hold the line so that you can provide any necessary information updates. Post your address clearly and prominently in multiple locations Having your address easily visible at the end of your driveway AND on your home itself will ensure that first responders aren’t left wondering if they are at the right location. Make sure that you use numbering and lettering that can be seen during the day or night and are visible no matter which direction you are coming from. If you live in the country make sure your green address sign is displayed properly at the end of your driveway and visible from either direction. Report missing street signs in your neighborhood immediately

Making sure that your neighborhood has all the proper signage not only helps friends and family find your home but it can be crucial during an emergency situation and time is of the essence. Don’t let your kids play with old cell phones Many people don’t know this but the law mandates that even old, deactivated cell phones with no associated service plan must still be able to call 9-1-1. An old cell phone may seem to be the perfect free toy but giving your seemingly useless device to a youngster may lead to problems. So, if you want to turn that old phone you have laying around into a plaything, be sure to remove the battery before turning it over to your inquisitive youngster. Better yet, consider donating any unwanted retired wireless devices to a charitable program that can safely recycle them. You can drop old cell phones off at the Sheriff’s Office 113 N. Market St, in Van Wert to be donated to a charitable organization. Teach your kids what 9-1-1 is Let them know that 9-1-1 is the number to call when they need help or they see someone who needs help right away. Teach your kids when and how to call 9-1-1 It is important that children learn that there are specific times when calling 9-1-1 is the right thing to do. Let them know that they should only call when someone or something is hurt or in danger or if they need a police officer, a firefighter or a doctor. Teach them how to use your cell

phone, land line or other device to call 9-1-1 Practice makes perfect Help your kids memorize information that will be useful to 9-1-1 call takers, such as their name, their parents’ names, their address and their phone number. The more comfortable they are, the more quickly they can provide vital information to the call taker who can then dispatch the appropriate responders to the location. Engage in ongoing, age appropriate training Once is never enough, as they say, and your job isn’t done after your kids understand the basics. As the years pass, technology will change and so will your child’s capacity for providing crucial details to the 9-1-1 call taker. It is up to you to make sure that they are knowledgeable about the features and capabilities of the 9-1-1 system and that they are ready to provide the most detailed information and they know how to use your devices such as different brands of smart phones et The groups listed below can provide you with more information on 9-1-1 and public safety issues: The National Emergency Number Association (NENA) / www.nena.org The Wireless Foundation / www. wirelessfoundation.org The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International / www.apcointl.org 9-1-1 Coordinator Kim Brandt’s Office at 419-238-3866 or on facebook Van Wert County 9-1-1 Operations.
