Ulm to lead first-ever Delphos ‘Bark of Life’
BY NANCY SPENCER nspencer@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — The Relay for Life of Delphos will mark its 11th year on June 21 and 22. However, this year will be a little different. Several hours after the closing ceremonies Saturday at the Community Track, dog-lovers will meet from 2-5 p.m. at Leisure Park in Delphos for the first-ever “Bark for Life.” Delphos Animal Hospital is sponsoring the event with Dr. Bonnie Jones as chair. “This is a great way for dogs and their owners to participate in the fight against cancer. We are seeking team captains as well as participants,” Dr. Jones said. “Dog-walkers need to pre-register at our office at 1825 E. Fifth St. and then start raising money for the cause. Perhaps they could take their furry friend with them. It’s hard to resist a cute dog.” She has recruited Bob Ulm and his guide dog, Pippa, as grand marshals. “I think the event sounds like a lot of fun and will hopefully raise some funds, too. When Dr. Bonnie called to ask if I’d volunteer, I was happy to say yes,” Ulm said. Many members of Ulm’s family have been touched by cancer. “Like so many other people in this area, my family has been adversely affected by the ravages of cancer,” Ulm said. “I lost my sight because of it at 11 months old. The same retina cancer resulted in the loss of vision in one eye for three of my five sisters and our daughter, Gina, during childhood. I lost my father, William Ulm, and a sister, Sue Hickey, to cancer. “I think it’s important to do all we can to fight this disease and this fundraiser sounds like a fun way to do so. Incorporating something as important as our pets in to the struggle sounds like a great idea and I hope we’ll have a big turnout.” Ulm wants the focus to be on the event. “My story is like dozens of others you can hear all too often in Delphos,” he said. “I hope that some day people will talk about cancer in the same way we talk about polio but it’s going to take a lot of research and a lot of money to make that happen.” While Ulm doesn’t consider Pippa his caregiver, others may disagree. “I had to remind Bob that cancer is the reason he has Pippa and she does take care of him on many levels,” Dr. Jones said.

Delphos, Ohio

The National Association of Letter Carriers will hold its 21st annual “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive on May 11 and Delphos Post Office carriers will participate. All customers within the city and the surrounding rural routes are asked to place nonperishable food items, including baby food and pet food, by their mailbox or in some cases, in the place designated for their mail delivery for pick up by carriers during their normal delivery times. Rural route customers are asked to either hang them from their mailbox or place them inside the box with the red flag raised. There will also be a box inside the post office. All donations will be divided equally between the St. Vincent dePaul Society, the Interfaith Thrift Shop and the First Assembly of God Food Bank. Last year, the Delphos area contributed 2,780 pounds of food.

Light Primary Tuesday
Staff reports DELPHOS AREA - Local voters will see a light Primary Election on Tuesday. Delphos Republicans will decide between two lifelong Delphos residents, Del Kemper and Greg Etgen, both of West Second Street, for the 3rd Ward seat on city council to be vacated by Jim Knebel. Kemper is semi-retired from Statewide Ford in Van Wert and sells real estate. He said Delphos is in need of a solution to its budget problems. “Our income tax collection is down and when this year’s budget was done, they had expected a 3-percent increase. That didn’t happen so they had to re-do the budget,” he said. “We have some tough choices ahead. We need to be fiscally responsible and ask others to do the same. We need to get a grip on what’s coming in and what’s going out.” Kemper also said he sees money problems in the future. “We have a water plant that is supposed to increase its collections by three percent each year. That is not happening but it has been budgeted,” he said. “In the next several years, council will be making some really hard decisions. “I have been in management and reading financial statements most of my adult life and with this experience,

City filling pool for upcoming season
The Delphos Recreation Department began pumping water into the swimming pool on Friday. Supervisor Craig Mansfield said it will take approximately 5-7 days and 550,000 gallons of water to completely fill the pool. The facility will be open Memorial Day Weekend and then open for the season on June 1. (Delphos Herald/Stephanie Groves)

Andrew Daley I’ve had to keep a balanced budget. I know when times get especially tough, variable expenses are scrutinized and a large portion of variable expenses is manpower. I don’t want to see anyone lose their job and I don’t know what other expenses could be cut. I’m on the outside looking in right now. I don’t see a lot of fat out here or easy answers.” See PRIMARY, page 10

Van Wert Co. Relay For Life exceeds team goal
BY LINDSAY MCCOY DHI Correspondent VAN WERT - Hundreds of people joined together to walk for a cure Friday evening and all through the night as a part of the annual American Cancer Society Van Wert County Relay for Life. A goal was set for 30 teams, and the Van Wert community went above and beyond this goal with 32 teams participating in the annual event. Over 234 participants signed up to be a part of this year’s event at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds with many additional people making appearances to show their support. The event kicked off Friday at 6 p.m. with the survivor’s lap for those who have survived cancer as well as their caregivers. By Thursday night with the conclusion of luminaria sales, Van Wert Relay had already successfully raised $21,896 that will go directly towards finding a cure for cancer. Top fundraising teams included Leland Smith Insurance Services Inc. and Legs for Liberty First Federal of Van Wert. “We are out here to support a fellow co-worker, Lori Schaffer, who lost her fight with cancer,” said Leland Smith Insurance team member April Korte. To raise funds, the team sought out online donations, sold pedometers, luminarias, and T-shirts. This team alone signed up over 50 walkers.

For The Record

One Year Ago St. John’s Elementary School second-grade teacher Kathy Holdgreve knew she wanted to be a teacher since she attended Fort Jennings Elementary. On Tuesday, Holdgreve was rewarded for her dedication by the Catholic Diocese of Toledo with one of seven annual Golden Apple awards.

Answers to Friday’s questions: U.S. President Chester A. Arthur, in 1882, raised money to redecorate the White House by auctioning off presidential artifacts — including a pair of Abraham Lincoln’s trousers. Other items auctioned off included 24 wagonloads of furniture and 30 barrels of china. Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 47 in G Major is known as the Palindrome Symphony because the third movement is the musical equivalent of a palindrome — it’s the same played forward and backward. Today’s questions: What baseball legend hit a record three consecutive home runs in a World Series game — on the first pitch thrown by three different pitchers? What practical household use was made of the very first gold nugget discovered in the U.S.? Answers in Monday’s Herald

is in its memories. But Tess’s own history is filled with gaps: a father she never met, a mother who spent more time traveling than with her daughter. So Tess is shocked when she discovers the grandfather she never knew is in a coma. And that she has been named in his will to inherit half of Bella Vista, a hundred-acre apple orchard in the magical Sonoma town called Archangel. The rest is willed to Isabel Johansen. A half-sister she’s never heard of. Against the rich landscape of Bella Vista, Tess begins to discover a world filled with the simple pleasures of food and family, Phillip, the man who hurt her early on in her career. Brooke, Samantha, and Katherine don’t know each other, but their stories are about to intertwine in ways no one could have imagined. And all three are about to discover the power of friendship to conquer adversity, the satisfaction of unexpected delights, the incredible difference one human being can have on other lives—and that they have all they could ask for, as long as they have each other. Fly Away by Kristin Hannah Tully Hart has always been larger than life, a woman fueled by big dreams and driven by memories of a painful past. She thinks she can overcome anything until her best friend, Kate Ryan, dies. Tully tries to fulfill her deathbed promise to Kate—-to be there for Kate’s children—-but Tully knows nothing about family or motherhood or taking care of people. Sixteen-yearold Marah Ryan is devastated by her mother’s death. Her father, Johnny, strives to hold the family together, but even with his best efforts, Marah becomes unreachable in her grief. Nothing and no one seems to matter to her … until she falls in love with a young man who makes her smile again and leads her into his dangerous, shadowy world. Dorothy Hart is at the center of Tully’s tragic past. She repeatedly abandoned her daughter, Tully, as a child, but now she comes back, drawn to her daughter’s side at a time when Tully is most alone. At long last, Dorothy must face her darkest fear: Only by revealing the ugly secrets of her past can she hope to become the mother her daughter needs. An emotionally complex, heart-wrenching novel about love, motherhood, loss, and new beginnings, Fly Away reminds us that where there is life, there is hope, and where there is love, there is forgiveness. Told with her trademark powerful storytelling and illuminating prose, Kristin Hannah reveals why she is one of the most beloved writers of our day.

Summit it Up by Pat Summitt Pat Summitt was only 21 when she became head coach of the Tennessee Volunteers women’s basketball team. For 38 years, she has broken records, winning more games than any NCAA team in basketball history. She has coached an undefeated season, co-captained the first women’s Olympic team, was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame, and has been named Sports Illustrated ‘Sportswoman of the Year.’ She owes her coaching success to her personal struggles and triumphs. She learned to be tough from her strict, demanding father. Motherhood taught her to balance that rigidity with communication and kindness. She is a role model for the many women she’s coached; 74 of her players have become coaches. Pat’s life took a shocking turn in 2011, when she was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, an irreversible brain condition that affects 5 million Americans. Despite her devastating diagnosis, she led the Volunteers to win their sixteenth SEC championship in March 2012. Pat continues to be a fighter, facing this new challenge the way she’s faced every other — with hard work, perseverance, and a sense of humor.

Zoe’s family rescues dogs, their home a house full of pet noise and ‘white fur flying.’ The other houses a family and a boy named Phillip, who is always silent. Can Zoe and the healing power of dogs help Phillip find his voice again? MacLachlan has delivered another short and powerful story. Bomb, the Race to Build — and Steel — the World’s Most Dangerous Weapon by Steve Sheinkin Sheinkin’s nonfiction work has four medals across the front, including the Newbery Honor, attesting to its superb writing. This is the story of the atomic bomb, a story that begins in 1938, when a German chemist discovers for the first time that a uranium atom can be split in two. Written like a spy thriller, complete with sabotage, intrigue and historical information, this narrative will keep the reader’s attention, while learning of an important piece of times past. ANNIE AND HELEN by Deborah Hopkins The title, of course refers to Helen Keller and the woman and friend who unlocked her silent world and taught Keller to communicate, Annie Sullivan. The beautiful illustrations make this picture book an ideal way to share this historical and poignant story. Scattered throughout are parts of letters written by Sullivan to her family during the most difficult times of their relationship and mentoring. Keller went on to learn Braille and even to graduate college, all with Annie Sullivan’s help.

“When your work speaks for itself, don’t interrupt.” — Henry J. Kaiser, American industrialist (1882-1967)

Me and mine will ‘bark’
As you can imagine, the upcoming “Bark for Life” is right up my alley. Little Ringo, his dad and I will be there with bells on. OK. Maybe not bells but we are excited to be part of such an event. Ringo is a walking machine. During his school years (Puppy Kindergarten, Advanced Obedience and Canine Good Citizen classes), we would walk him for two or three miles before each class to wear him out and calm him down. Unfortunately, it seemed to put more of a pep in his four-pawed step than the effect we were seeking. My husband wanted to bring our furry kid to Relay last year and I had to tell him no. He was looking forward to showing him off and, yes, wearing him out by walking more laps than anyone — ever. As you can tell, my husband is a little competitive. “Bark for Life” will give us the opportunity to walk for the cause together. I appreciate how much love, comfort and affection my fur-bearig companion gives me daily and I’m healthy. In the coming weeks, The Herald will share stories from several cancer survivors who count their canines as caregivers. They feel their animals were as much help in beating the disease as the medication and treatments that sometimes robbed them of “good” days and left them weak and exhausted. Here is a letter from a cancer survivor from London, England, I found on the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Survivor Network website. Brought a little tear to my eye. This may be silly, but I wanted to write a thank you note to our dog Daisy. Daisy is a 6 year-old beagle and has been with us since she was a pup. She howls a little too much but once those big brown eyes catch you, you don’t care.


On the Other hand
Dear Daisy: I want to thank you for all your help with the family for the last year. As you know, there is a darkness in the house and although we don’t understand it either, we know that it’s here and we need to huddle even closer together for warmth on the cold nights to come. You’re such a gentle, affectionate little sweetheart, you’ve lifted our spirits when we least expected it, acted as my nurse when no one else was around, listened to my fears and complaints without judgment and made me stop and think about things a few times when you gave me that disapproving look. So thank you for being such a great dog/ pet/companion/nurse/friend, and I want you to know that you have added greatly to the number of happy days I’ve enjoyed in the last year. Love always and forever, Lee See what I mean? I agree with Bob Ulm. It’s important we do what we can to fight cancer and there’s nothing wrong with having a little fun while we do it. The event is something different and I hope that is enticing enough to draw a good crowd and add a few more dollars to research so someday we can talk about how everyone survives cancer or perhaps — how cancer is a disease of the past.

Shine a light on mental illness in May
I love to write. Besides newspaper writing, I also write for an organization called the We Care People, which focuses on mental health. May is Mental Health Month. While many of us try to shine a light on mental health issues throughout the year, in May we really try to illuminate many aspects of mental health which remain stigmatized and misunderstood by many people. I have been very open about my struggle with bipolar disorder and recovery from alcoholism — two components that provide me with a daily challenge when it comes to staying mentally healthy. And I know I’m not alone here. According to the website Psych Central, mental health concerns affect 1 in 10 Americans today, yet fewer than 25 percent of people with a diagnosable disorder seek treatment. The stigma is still there. It’s still there, and it shouldn’t be. Mental illnesses, and treatable ones at that, include, bipolar disorder, clinical depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, attention deficit disorder and so many more. For some reason, we exist in a society in which there is no shame to admit that we have cancer or diabetes, yet there is still shame associated with having a mental illness. I so badly wish this weren’t the case. I am not ashamed at the way I was created. My disorders and addictions do not define me. They are a part of me, but they do not define who I am. I have learned along the way that the more open and willing I am to discuss these “taboo” topics with others, the more open and willing others are to talk about their own issues; they more readily realize they are not alone and there is no shame. There is help. I was lost before I came forward about what I perceived to be my shortcomings. I felt lost, alone, scared, ashamed…now I feel liberated…empowered. Because I am not letting my illness control me. I am taking control of it. I feel that, in turn, I have found my life’s purpose, which is to not remain silent about things that matter. I hope that by my breaking my own silence, I will give others the courage to break theirs. I think we need a strong dialogue in our society about mental illness, and we just don’t have one. Yet. It is my hope that the more people who realize that there is nothing fundamentally wrong with them, and that it’s okay to ask for help, the more, and sooner, the stigma associated with mental illness will fade away…until nothing is left of it at all. Nothing but knowledge. And knowledge is power. You can do your part. Become part of the public dialogue on mental illness. Ask questions. Open up when you feel comfortable… and the more you open up, the more comfortable you, and those around you, will be. This country strongly, strongly needs a good, solid, ongoing conversation regarding mental health issues. Find a way to do your part today.

Prude or prudent?

Point of View
The debate arose after a federal judge last month ordered that the government remove all obstacles to overthe-counter sales of Plan B. As it stands, children as young as 15 can buy the drug without a prescription or parental knowledge. They do have to show identification proving they are 15, which, as critics of such restrictions have pointed out, is problematic for many teens. Apparently the Obama administration agrees that young girls shouldn’t use so serious a drug, even though proclaimed medically “safe,” without adult supervision. The Justice Department has given notice that it will appeal the judge’s decision, a move that could potentially backfire and, in fact, remove all age barriers. The dominant question is legitimate: Even if we would prefer that girls not be sexually active so early in life, wouldn’t we rather they block a pregnancy before it happens than wait and face the worse prospect of abortion? The pros are obvious: Plan B, if taken within three days of unprotected sex, greatly

reduces the chance of pregnancy. If a child waits too long to take the pill, however, a fertilized egg could reach the uterine wall and become implanted, after which the drug is useless. You see how the word “child” keeps getting in the way. There’s no point debating whether such young girls should be sexually active. Obviously, given the potential consequences, both physical and psychological, the answer is no. Just as obvious, our culture says quite the opposite: As long as there’s an exit, whether abortion or Plan B, what’s the incentive to await mere maturity? Advocates for lifting age limits on Plan B, including Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, insist that the pill is universally safe and, therefore, all age barriers should be dropped. From a strictly utilitarian viewpoint, this may be well-advised. But is science the only determining factor when it comes to the well-being of our children? Even President Obama, who once boasted that his policies would be based on science and not emotion, has parental qualms about children buying serious drugs to treat a condition that has deeply psychological underpinnings. What about the right of parents to protect their children? A 15-year-old can’t

get Tylenol at school without parental permission, but we have no hesitation about children taking a far more serious drug without oversight? These are fair questions that deserve more than passing scrutiny — or indictments of prudishness. A Slate headline about the controversy goes: “The Politics of Prude.” More to the point: The slippery slope away from parental autonomy is no paranoid delusion. Whatever parents may do to try to delay the ruin of childhood innocence, the culture says otherwise: Have sex, take a pill, don’t tell mom. Where, finally, do we draw the increasingly blurred line for childhood? Americans may disagree about what is sexually appropriate for their children. And everyone surely wishes to prevent children from having babies. But public policy should be aimed at involving rather than marginalizing parents. To say that this controversy is strictly political is no argument against debate. Politics is the debate about the role of government in our lives. And the debate about Plan B is fundamentally about whether government or parents have ultimate authority over their children’s wellbeing.

Delphos Eagles Auxiliary meets at the Eagles Lodge, 1600 Fifth St. 8 p.m. — The Veterans of Foreign Wars meet at the hall. Every week, it seems I have someone come into the museum and they ask me questions about various subjects that involved the post office and some of the questions send me back into the reference books for answers. This week was no exception. This past Thursday, we had a former postal worker from San Angelo, Texas, stop in for his second visit to the museum. He had been in several months ago while visiting his son in Ottawa. He was so impressed with his visit that this time he brought me some artifacts that I had never seen before. The US Postal Service operated several training centers throughout the country. One of the largest facilities was located just outside Oklahoma City and adjacent to the University of Oklahoma campus. It was so large that the postal service contracted with Marriott Corporation to build and maintain a hotel that was attached to the training facility. Some might think that the items that were donated have little if any monetary value, but the unique nature of them really peaked my interest. The items were large bars of soap and small bottles of shampoo that were labeled with a picture of the training facility along with the USPS logo and trademark. Besides the contents of the items (which really have little to do with the Post Office), it is the fact that the logo and trademarks, which are guarded like the gold in Fort Knox, were used in this manner. But now to the question…. He asked me about fractional currency and how it related to the Post Office Department in the mid 1800s. As many realize, postage was used as a form of currency. When I was a kid,


items would be advertised on cereal boxes or in the newspaper and for some time postage stamps were accepted as payment for the items. Later when I became a teenager, I noticed the last line of many of these ads read, “No postage stamps, please.” But fractional currency was paper money used just prior to and after the Civil War. So what was fractional currency? Fractional currency came into existence by an act of Congress to meet the growing demand for currency that could be used in place of coins. Many people throughout the country began to hoard the gold, silver and even copper coins that were in circulation at the time. Because of the shortage of coins, the public began using postage as legal tender. Notes were issued by what later became the US Bureau of Printing and Engraving. They were issued in denominations of 3, 5, 10, 15, 25 and 50 cents. The US government produced these notes from August 21, 1862, until February 15, 1876. I can hear your question from the background: “What did these notes have to do with the Post Office?” Congress and President Lincoln approved the Postage Currency Act on July 17, 1862. Although the Post Office was not fond of using stamps as currency and even refused refunds for soiled stamps, the notes were redeemable at face value at the Post Office for postage. Many different types, designs and pictures were printed on these notes. At one point in time, the images of Sherman and Grant were considered, however, because of the laws of that period, neither was allowed. The law stated that no image could be See CURATOR, page 10

For Older American’s Month this May, consider saving lives
BY KAITLYN THOMPSON Community Outreach Coordinator You’re never too old. Older Americans make up 33.2 million of the United States population today and live longer lives thanks to advancements in medical technology.1 As years extend and the retirement age of 65 stays the same, older Americans have more time than ever to make every day count. But for 18 people every day waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant, time is running out. May is Older Americans Month, an opportunity to dispel the age myth keeping those 65+ from registering as organ, eye and tissue donors. While 57.9 percent of people in Allen county make the decision to donate, these same Ohioans take themselves out of the Ohio Donor Registry as they get older. Only 42.4 percent of Allen county residents 65 and older are registered donors today. Some of the reasons that keep older people from registering include the following: “I can’t be an organ donor. I have diabetes, cancer, etc.” er than anyone considering registering in the Ohio Donor Registry. Medical professionals and clinical teams evaluate all organs and tissues to be sure only strong, healthy organs and tissues are used to save lives. “My organs are too old to be used. Only young people can be organ, eye and tissue donors.” More than 117,500 Americans are on the national waiting list right now waiting for their last chance at survival: a transplant. Without heroes who register as organ, eye and tissue donors, these people will die. For a candidate waiting whose organ has failed, organs recovered from older Americans can be transplanted to extend that patient’s life. There are no age limits for donation. The oldest organ donor in the U.S. was 92 at the time of death. You’re never too old to donate. Say Yes. Unleash your power at any age. Register as an organ, eye and tissue donor today at your local Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) location or by visiting www.DonateLifeOhio.org.

Panthers run-rule error-prone Lady Wildcats
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Defense in the game of baseball or fast-pitch softball is all about catching, throwing and fielding. Jefferson’s softball squad struggled with that part of the game Friday night, committing nine miscues in the field in falling 12-1 to Paulding in six innings in Northwest Conference action at Lady Wildcat Field. It was that defensive struggle that was on the mind of first-year Jefferson head man Josiah Stober. “We beat ourselves tonight with our defense. We made a lot of mental mistakes in those physical errors as well,” Stober began. “We talk to our girls a lot about thinking ahead and knowing where to go with the ball, as well as focusing on finishing the plays. We have to get better there, no doubt.” Paulding head man Matt Carr was just happy his team put the ball in play. “No doubt, we got help from their defense but we made them make those plays. We are hitting the ball hard,” Carr acknowledged. “That has been a big stress this week for us; make contact.” Those errors meant that only one of the Lady Panthers’ 12 runs that Jefferson starter Taylor Branham (0-9) gave up in her six innings was earned. The Panthers (5-7, 3-3 NWC) got their only earned run in the top of the first on a walk, a single (Kelsey Beck) and a wild pitch, plating Alexis Rue. Jefferson (0-11, 0-6 NWC) tied it up in the home half against freshman Kristen Schilt



In the 5th inning, Jefferson junior Kamie Pulford gets dirty on a sinking liner for the first out against Paulding on Friday afternoon. The visiting Lady Panthers grabbed a 12-1 rout in six innings. (Delphos Herald/Tom Morris) (2-1) on a leadoff triple to left by Fallon Van Dyke and a wild pitch. However, junior first sacker Jasmine McDougall had to leave the lineup due to injury. The Panthers opened up a 6-run lead in the top of the second, piecing together three miscues along the way. They also had a walk, a hit batter and three hits, including back-toback 2-run singles by Breana Schmidt and Jerika Bland, to gain that 7-1 spread when the smoke had cleared. The Wildcats tried to answer in the second on 1-out back-to-back singles (Samantha Branham and Alexis Cook) and a sacrifice bunt (Kayla Kill) but could not score. Paulding left two stranded in the third and the bases loaded in the fourth, though they did score a run in the latter on a leadoff triple by Beck (3-for-4, 3 runs) and an error. Delphos again put two on in the home half of the fourth on 2-out infield hits (S. Branham

and Cook) but again, could not score. The visitors made it 10-1 in the fifth as they used two more misplays by the Wildcats and one single, a run-scoring liner to left by Beck. Paulding tacked on their final two tallies in the top of the sixth, once more gaining help via a pair of errors, plus adding a free pass and a hit. Trying to get two runs to extend the game, Jessica Pimpas led off the Jefferson sixth with a bloop to right but was eliminated on a Sarah Thitoff grounder. She advanced on a Kamie Pulford groundout and stole third but got no farther. Stober was pleased with the offensive attack. “Our bats have come alive the last three or four games. We’ve worked hard on our form and we’re swinging them well,” Stober added. “We’re putting the ball in play and not striking out nearly as much as we were earlier this season. We even had some hard-hit balls go right to them, so we had some bad luck. Taylor also pitched better than the result.” Carr was extremely happy with his pitching. “That was only Kristen’s third varsity start and she did fine,” he added. “When she throws strikes, she is very effective. That allows her to mix her changeup in with her other pitches and our defense is on its toes, like tonight.” Both teams return to NWC action 5 p.m. Monday: Jefferson at Crestview and Paulding at Allen East.

Wide-open race expected in Bowlers receive year-end awards 139th Kentucky Derby
AP Racing Writer LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A trainer flooding the field with five horses. A black jockey trying to make history, and a woman rider, too. Louisville coach Rick Pitino seeking a double — champions in racing and basketball. He’s sure in the right place. The 19-horse field for today’s Kentucky Derby is balanced, with no definitive favorite. Orb is the pre-race choice, just barely. Nearly overshadowed is his trainer, Shug McGaughey, who really, really wants this race. Doug O’Neill trying to win back-toback. And then there’s the threat of rain, which has done in some of the best-laid plans on race day. It sure looks like a topsy-turvy Derby. “I don’t think we’ve got Secretariat in this bunch, even Seattle Slew,” four-time Derbywinning trainer D. Wayne Lukas said, “so I think it’s going to boil down to the trip and the pace and a lot of other things.” Todd Pletcher will saddle a record-tying five horses — undefeated and early second choice Verrazano, Revolutionary, Overanalyze, Palace Malice and Charming Kitten. “We laid out a plan to get here with them, and it’s all come down pretty much like we hoped,” said Pletcher, who has one Derby win with 31 previous starters. Verrazano is 4-0 in his young career, not having run as a 2-year-old. He’ll be trying to disprove an old Derby jinx: no horse since Apollo in 1882 has won without racing as a juvenile. Relative unknown Kevin Krigger will be aboard Goldencents, trying to become the first black jockey to win since Jimmy Winkfield in 1902. “I’m going to ride us the race that should get us to the Kentucky Derby winner’s circle,” Krigger said.

complete the ultimate trifecta. Rosie Napravnik wants to grab history for herself, too. No female jockey has ever won the Derby, although she came closest, with a ninth-place finish in 2011. Napravnik will ride 15-1 long shot Mylute. “He feels great, he’s acting great and I’m very confident heading into the Derby,” she said. Orb was the narrow 7-2 early favorite for the 139th Derby. He comes in on a four-race winning streak for McGaughey, the 62-yearold trainer whose Hall of Fame resume lacks a Derby victory. He’s making his second appearance since 1989, when he finished second with Easy Goer. “I hope the track is fast and safe for everybody and nobody has any excuses, and let the best horse win,” McGaughey said. Goldencents will be trying to deliver for more than Krigger and Pitino. He’s trained by O’Neill, who put unknown Mario Gutierrez aboard I’ll Have Another last year and won. The trainer is following the same script this time, giving Krigger a big break while trying to become the first trainer to win back-to-back Derbies since Bob Baffert in 1997-98. See DERBY, page 7

Risner outduels Rice, Pirates edge Wildcats 2-1
Staff Reports BLUFFTON — Bluffton’s Nathan Risner outdueled Jefferson’s Tyler Rice Friday night, leading the host Pirates to a riveting 2-1 Northwest Conference baseball triumph over the Wildcats in Bluffton. Risner threw an efficient 77 pitches (44 strikes) in his complete game, ceding only one hit, one unearned run, two free passes and fanning two in fanning 26 batters. Rice tossed 90 pitches (60 for strikes) in his gem, giving up six hits and two unearned runs in also facing 26 batters. After neither team scored for 5 1/2 frames, the Pirates got their two tallies in the home half of the sixth. With one out, James Harrod singled and advanced as Drake Lugibihl’s fly ball was dropped. Brett Rumer’s single loaded the bases. Michael Sheehan got on board via an error, allowing Harrod and Lugibuhl to score and putting runners at second and third. Rice bore down and got the next two batters to bounce out to keep the Wildcats (13-8, 2-5 NWC) within striking distance. Tyler Wrasman bunted his way aboard to lead off the Delphos seventh but was eliminated on a Drew Kortokrax grounder. The latter advanced on a Jordan Herron groundout and a misplayed grounder hit by Zavier Buzard. Buzard

Round Up

(Continued from page 6) a 2-out single by James Schaad to score Aaron Crider. The third inning saw the Big Green get things started with a 1-out walk to senior Jacob Turnwald. Sophomore Brandon Boecker took a 2-2 pitch over the fence in left to put the Big Green ahead 2-1. The Big Green increased its lead to 3-1 in the top of the fourth inning on two walks and a run-scoring single by Derek Schimmoeller to bring home Alex Horstman. In the bottom half, the Bearcats took the lead. An error and a single put Joel Shimp and Sean Monfort on, with Bubba Shimp lacing a 2-run double to center. He scored on a single by Mitchell Youngpeter, giving the Bearcats a 4-3 lead. The Big Green tied it at 4-4 in the sixth. Two 1-out hits and a 2-out single by Schimmoeller plated freshman Jared Fanning. The Bearcats went up 6-4 in the home half with two down. A single (Bubba Shimp) and walk (Wyatt Krouskop) set up Youngpeter 2-run rocket to centerfield for a double. In Ottoville’s seventh, a hit batter (Boecker; Wes Markward pinch-running) and wild pitch preceded a runscoring hit by Zach Weber for a 6-5 deficit. An out later came a play that gives a lot of coaches gray hair. The Bearcats seemingly had won the game with a strikeout of Joel Beining but the ball bounced away from the Bearcat catcher; a hesitant throw and an error put runners on second and third. Craig Odenweller walked to load the bases and Weber tied the game on a walk to Schimmoeller. The Bearcats had the final answer in the bottom half. Freshman Hunter French led off with a single and reached second on a groundout. Joel Shimp laced a single to center that looked like the game-ender but the Big Green executed a perfect play to cut down French at the plate with sophomore Joe Van Oss blocking the plate and applying the tag. The Big Green intentionally walked Monford to set up a force

play but pinch-hitter Jon Long ended the game with a single to right that just sneaked past the outstretched glove of Odenweller at second. Schaad picked up the win in relief of Bearcat starter Joel Shimp (5 1/3 IP) and Tanner Koverman (1 1/3 IPs). Weber suffered the lost for the Big Green in relief after junior Alex Horstman pitched the first four innings. The Big Green are back in action Tuesday night as they travel to Miller City for a big PCL game (5 p.m.). The Bearcats travel to Ada for an NWC showdown 5 p.m. Monday.

Friday afternoon at Village Park in Fort Jennings, the fans saw five as the Kalida Wildcats beat the Musketeers 8-4 in Putnam County League action.

Kurt Warnecke had a double and single with a run scored for the hosts; Mark Metzger went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and a run scored. The ’Cats’ bats came alive early in the game, scoring three times in the top of the first: a walk (Brent Hovest), single (Swift), 2-run double (Rob Kleman) and two balks. Fort Jennings answered with a run in the second after a leadoff double by Warnecke. He scored on a Rau sac fly. The Wildcats added two in the third on a single (Recker) and walk (Kyle Kehres). Both scored, one on a Kleman sac fly, the other on a Trent Gerding single. Jennings wasted no time in getting back into the game, scoring two in the bottom of the inning. Dylan Van Loo led off with a double, Metzger walked and Warnecke launched a 2-out, 2-run double. Kalida added one more in the fourth and another in fifth.

(Continued from page 6) “We think it is our time,” O’Neill said. “We think it is us.” Don’t look for the white-haired Baffert on Saturday. The three-time Derby winner isn’t saddling a horse this year, but like everyone, he had an opinion. “Whoever has the heart will win it,” he said. The forecast calls for an 80 percent chance of rain and a high of 59 degrees. The last Derby run on a sloppy track was in 2010. “It’ll make the Derby that much more wide open,” said trainer Ken McPeek, who has two starters, Frac Daddy and Java’s War. Lukas has two horses — Oxbow and Will Take Charge — ready for his 27th Derby. The four-time winning

trainer planned to sleep soundly the night before. “I don’t get uptight, don’t even get excited when they go in the gate,” he said. At 77, Lukas would be the oldest trainer to win. Oxbow’s jockey, Gary Stevens, will be pulling double-duty Saturday. He’ll ride in his first Derby since ending a seven-year retirement earlier this year, and then return to his job as a racing analyst on NBC’s telecast. The 50-yearold rider has won the race three times. “You go out there with the highest hopes,” he said. “I’ve walked back too many times after the Kentucky Derby and it’s a disappointment if they don’t run their race. If we’re fortunate enough to win it, I know how to celebrate.” Calvin Borel is one jockey always

worth watching in the Derby. He and Revolutionary will break from the No. 3 spot in the starting gate, putting Borel near his favorite path on the track — the rail. The rider nicknamed “Bo-rail” for his fence-skimming rides has three Derby wins in the last six years. “This is his home court,” Lukas said. “He does better here than anywhere else.” Normandy Invasion can count on his own rooting section among the expected throngs at Churchill Downs. The colt named for the Allied assault on Normandy in World War II has four D-Day veterans backing him. They were flown in for the race by owner Rick Porter, and met the colt up close on Friday.

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, MAY 5, 2013 There are two major areas that will command your focus in the year ahead. One pertains to a creative endeavor, while the other involves romance. Success is indicated in each. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- When you put the needs of others before your own, your probabilities for getting what you want become excellent. Fate will make sure things go your way. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You’re not likely to have much control over a major change in your affairs. You might interpret this happening negatively, but it will prove to be a good thing. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Although you might have to take a little heat on behalf of a friend, you’re doing the right thing and your loyalty won’t be forgotten. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When you apply yourself, you will find the opportunities you need to succeed. Once you make up your mind, woe to those who try to block your path. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Don’t hesitate to take a calculated risk if you feel it’s necessary. If you believe the odds favor you, it’s OK to gamble once in awhile. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Any major issues in which you and your mate are in agreement will have far-reaching, favorable results. You’ll quickly discover that a united front brings many benefits. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Rather than criticize or dominate others, you’ll be inclined to set an example of leadership. Doing so will make your methods constructive, not contentious. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You should give full rein to your enterprising side, especially if you’re in need of some extra cabbage. Your moneymaking instincts are unusually keen. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you feel that those in charge of a current endeavor aren’t effectively handling things, don’t hesitate to assert yourself and show them how to do a better job. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- The possibility of achieving two important personal objectives is quite good. When you’re determined to be successful, you will be. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Sometimes it’s necessary to take a calculated risk to achieve something big. If you honestly believe the odds favor you, go ahead and take a chance. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you wait for things to go your way, you’re not likely to get very far. You’ve got to make things happen yourself if you want to move forward. MONDAY, MAY 6, 2013 People with whom you’ve had successful dealings will prove lucky for you once again in the coming months. The same might not be true with new or untrusted associates. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Make sure any tips you receive are reliable before acting on them. If you don’t do your homework, you could get yourself in big trouble. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Take nothing for granted when conducting business with an unfamiliar firm or person. Be sure to check out all the facts and figures first. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Regardless of how good you believe an alliance to be, without harmony of purpose it won’t get you far. Make sure everyone’s on the same wavelength. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you are too busy checking on your colleagues’ work, you could easily neglect your own. Focus primarily on your assignment, not theirs. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It behooves you to avoid any and all speculative involvements, especially those controlled by others. A conflict of interest could ruin everything. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- An old, unresolved issue that has caused problems in the past might rear its ugly head again. Sadly, both you and your opponent will still be at loggerheads. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Although you’re a keen observer, your focus might only be on the negative. A biased viewpoint invites confrontation, so strive to be fair. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- Your financial picture is uncertain at this time, so be extra careful when it comes to the management of your funds. Any error, even a small one, could be very costly. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Demands imposed on you by others could prevent you from doing what you had planned. Take the inconvenience in stride, and things will work out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t make this a day where you create your own difficulties through self-sabotage. Think carefully before you act. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -When out socializing with friends, don’t hesitate to say no if they want you to participate in something that you can’t afford. Be bold, not broke. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You often push yourself beyond your limits, and you could become overtaxed today. Excessive effort will do you in. COPYRIGHT 2013 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

10 – The Herald

May 4, 2013


(Continued from page 1) Kemper and his wife, Scarlett, have three grown children and six grandchildren. They attend St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church. Etgen is currently employed with the City of Van Wert and says his experience working in a municipality will be invaluable on council. “I have a background in construction, water line repair and snow removal and I know how a city runs,” Etgen said. “I have thought about running for a while and the time was never right. When I heard Mr. Knebel wasn’t running, this time it was right.” Etgen said he knows the budget is not in good shape. “We aren’t going to be able to spend a lot of money so we need to take care of what we have and make good, logical decisions with the citizenry in mind.” Etgen and his wife, Joelyn, have four children: one is grown, two attend the University of Toledo and the youngest is a freshman at St. John’s High School. Voters will also decide if Spencerville native Andrew Daley or Kalida native Andrew Knueve will appear on Nov. 5 General Election ballot for the open 1st Ward seat on Delphos City Council. Both men have moved their families to Delphos and would like to become active in decisions affecting their new home. “City government is the closest to the people,” Daley said. “This is where my family works and my children will grow up and go to school. I want to provide my children with a hometown that is growing.” Daley would like to start with the city’s budget. “We need to get the budget where it needs to be,” he began. “We need responsible leadership to promote growth and work with all groups to see what we can do here.” Daley said he is impressed with the parks system and would like to see it continue to be self-sustaining. “We also need to take a look at the conditions of our roads,” he added. Daley and his wife, Andrea (Wrasman), reside on East Fourth Street. He is a Spencerville High School and


Rhodes State College graduate and works at Unverferths in Delphos. Knueve also agrees the budget is a top priority. “The budget is a huge concern,” he said. “The last time Mr. Jettinghoff gave numbers, we didn’t have a budget at a place I’m comfortable with and I’m sure council isn’t comfortable, either.” Knueve, an associate lawyer with Huffman, Kelley, Brock & Gottschalk, LLC., in Lima, said he has the time to devote to the position, if not the experience. “I have the time to give this the full effort it deserves and requires and what I lack in experience, I hope my legal background will make up for,” he added. Knueve and his wife, Amanda (Recker), live on Wildwood Circle and attend St. John’s Church. A renewal of the Delphos Public Library’s 0.6-mill levy, which was first approved in 1978, will also be decided upon. The levy, which has provided the library $49,000 a year since the last renewal, comprises 13 percent of the library’s annual budget. “This levy is important because it allows us to continue to offer services the community has come to value and use,” Director Kelly Rist said. “We need this because of all the budget cuts from the state. If it doesn’t pass, we’ll have to look at the budget some more and look at some things to cut.” Elida Local Schools will make a request for new money, its second request in the last year. This time Elida hopes

Del Kemper

voters will pass a 5.95-mill property tax levy, which would provide some financial stability for the next five years, generating $2.1 million annually. After the failure of November’s levy, the school board approved a $465,569 reduction plan that will still go into effect regardless of whether or not Tuesday’s attempt succeeds. If it fails, more reductions will be made. District officials are stumped as to where those reductions will come from. “It’s an impossible task to say what’s next, because anything less than what we have now will be devastating to our district,” Superintendent Don Diglia said. Elida has cut 43 staff positions over the last 10 years and is currently at just 14 teachers above the minimum to meet state standards. Further cuts could include letting go of a building coach at the elementary, a science teacher, language arts teacher and foreign language teacher at the high school, a foreign language teacher at the middle school and a return to half-day kindergarten. Diglia says cuts could be made to extracurriculars and other course offerings but doing so would result in a less thorough education and would make Elida’s students less competitive in college. Elida will also ask for a renewal of its 1-mill permanent improvement levy. This is a renewal and does not increase district residents’ taxes. Apollo Career Center has an item on the ballot Tuesday with a bond issue for enlarging, improving and rebuilding structures, including the

Greg Etgen

maintenance of classroom facilities, at a rate not exceeding 0.19 mill for each one dollar of valuation. The levy will cost $2.56 per month per $100,000 assessed home value and, if passed, Apollo will receive $23 million in matching funds from the state of Ohio. The income will be used to improve, expand and renovate buildings and facilities to acquire career-technical equipment and upgrade the school site to meet the needs of 21st-century learning. The current Apollo Career Center is 36 years old and has plumbing, heating and electrical issues. In recent years, space and technology upgrades have also become critical to the career center. Ohio School Facilities Commission funds have now been made available and the administration believes this is the time to take advantage of this opportunity. Apollo plans to keep all current structures and renovate the buildings, also adding to the house programs. The project will include renovating the high school, Adult Education and Automotive Building, and conversions in adult programming, Public Safety, HVAC and Motorcycle and Law Enforcement. A .75-mill replacement levy for Johnny Appleseed Metropolitan Park District (JAMPD) is on the ballot, which is the only levy the Park District has and represents the primary source of funding for all operations. Park District Director Kevin L. Haver said the West Central Ohio Board of Realtors reported the average home value in Allen County is $105,900. For an average home, the replacement levy will cost $24.32 per year, or approximately seven cents per day. Residential property values decreased by six percent last year and it is estimated the parks will lose an additional $127,000 due to delinquent property taxes because of the drop. The levy was first approved by the citizens of Allen County in 1993. It is estimated the district this year will collect $156,000 less than it received in 2011. According to Haver, the levy will secure the finances needed to operate an effi-

cient and stable park system from 2014 through 2023, with no new millage. Fixed costs such as maintenance, staffing, insurance, educational services and safety/law enforcement are included, as well as capital


improvements. Local monies are also needed to apply for outside grants. The replacement levy represents 80 percent of the Park District’s entire operating and capital improvements budget. one of the best things we do in Van Wert County to give back.” Once dark, everyone gathered around the track for a very special lap. Luminarias are lit and each person who lost their life to cancer is recognized. It is a very touching moment that often brings silence and tears as lost loved ones are remembered.

(Continued from page 1) “As a group, vendors can raise more money in two hours and during the full time of the event through paying for vendor spots, bingo and the sale of items,” said vendor and Once I Was owner Vickie Shulte. “It is important for me to do this because I have a long history of cancer in my family, and this is

(Continued from Page 5) could be used of anyone who had not been dead for at least two years. You may recall from previous articles that we only started producing postage stamps in the US after 1847. So within 15 years of their inception, stamps were being needed in greater demand and were considered with the same value as other currencies. During the Civil War, many Union soldiers received their pay in fractional currency. In fact, the first issues of fractional currency were called the Postage Stamp Currency because they bore the images of the 5- and 10-cent postage stamps (George Washington and Benjamin Franklin). We have large images on display of these stamps since they were the first ever used in the US. Do you enjoy history? Enjoy taking a look back into colonial America? Then you need to be registered for our next excursion to benefit the museum. We will be spending 6 days and 5 nights touring Jefferson’s home, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown during the most beautiful time of the year - Fall. We will leave on Saturday, Sept. 28 and return on Oct. 3. Our lodging is in a suite hotel just a mile from the main entrance of Williamsburg. All the transportation, lodging, entrance fees and entertainment costs, tips, taxes, and some of your meals are all included. Cost for double occupancy is $979 and you can reserve your seat by sending a $200 deposit per person to Museum of Postal History Tours (MPH Tours), PO Box 174, Delphos OH 45833. Have questions or want more information? Call Gary Levitt @ 418-303-5482 or Ruth Ann Wittler @ 419-296-8443. Everyone over the age of 62 will receive a Lifetime Pass for the entrance fees for all the national parks - it is a bonus for signing up early. Send your deposit today. (Continued from page 1) The heart of the Bark For Life is the relationship between survivors and their canine companions. Every family, coworker, friend or community member who has been close to a cancer experience and has a dog in their life, is invited to support the American Cancer Society by registering and fundraising through the Bark For Life. Teams will consist of 10-14 members with the pre-registration fee being a minimum donation of $10 per member. The goal is for each team member to raise at least $100. Team captains will receive free T-shirts while the dogs will be awarded bandannas to wear during the walk. “Delphos Creamery owner Dan Warnement is partnering with us to provide free ice cream treats to human participants and there will be free dog treats for the canines as well,” Dr. Jones added.
