Scout continues tradition at Suever Park
“Most Eagle projects are over 100 hours,” Harris said. “It helps development of leadership skills.” “The big thing you learn is project management,” Tom Siefker stated. “Getting approvals, sourcing materials and funds.” The group expressed concerns they had after last summer’s storm felled two huge trees across the planned pathway. Removal of the trees was a huge obstacle. “It was something we were not equipped to deal with,” Tom Siefker said. “The city came in over the winter and took care of it.” Many businesses and individuals have been instrumental in the success of the project. Beining Contractors owner, Ron Beining, donated the time and equipment to deliver the sand and the Bobcat rental was donated by Delphos Rental Corporation. “I want to thank the Scouts, leaders the city officials and everyone else who helped with the project,” A.J Siefker said earnestly. “Without them, it would not be possible.” In the past, Eagle Scouts Mitchell and Matthew Antalis, who were Boy Scouts at the time, designed and installed projects for Suever Park to earn their dis-

BBB warns of medical alert device scam


Information submitted Residents of our region have been receiving calls concerning a medical alert device that is being offered to them “free.” These calls seem to be directed to retired senior citizens. Recipients of these calls describe them as a recorded voice claiming that someone has purchased a med alert for them and it will be sent to them free of charge. It is never revealed who the mysterious donor is and there is no live person to whom questions can be directed. At the end of the recording, the recipient is told if they want to know more to say “yes” and if not to say “no.” So far everyone we have talked to has said “no.” Some consumers are saying they are getting repeat calls. Although a telephone number is provided, consumers are reporting that there is either no response or that the number is disconnected. While the BBB is uncertain as to the true purpose of this call, it can only be one of two things: either the caller wants to sell something and that pitch comes after you say “yes” or you are getting slammed and end up being charged for something you do not want. Responding to either of these questions may cause you to get another call because saying either yes or no tells the perpetrators they actually have a live person on the line. This is not unique to our region; BBB’s in various other locations around the country are also reporting this activity. Any phone call or email you receive that is hesitant about being fully transparent as to their purpose should be regarded as very suspect and requires a hang-up or deletion.

Preliminary Rib Fest plans announced
Information submitted VAN WERT — The Van Wert Rib Fest committee has been hard at work preparing for this year’s event which will be held on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 2 and 3, at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds. According to Larry Lee, executive director of the Van Wert Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, the parent organization of the Rib Fest, work began last October for this year’s 7th Annual event. “The Rib Fest is an important source of income for the Bureau as well as an opportunity for the entire community to come together for some great fun, great food, and great entertainment,” he said. “Other than adjusting the hours of the Rib Fest, most of the event will remain unchanged.” Lee reported that the gates will open at 5 p.m. on Friday afternoon and at 11 a.m. on Saturday morning. Activities will continue both days until midnight. Admission will remain at $2 per person ages 11 and older. There will be no charge for parking. While Lee said that the committee is still working on specifics, some things have been finalized. There will five rib vendors this year, including Pork Brothers BBQ from Lima, Gibson’s Barnyard BBQ from Convoy, Manley Meats from Decatur, Smokin’ Buckeye BBQ from Clyde and Carolina Rib King from Spartanburg, SC. Other concessions that have committed to the Rib Fest include Mike’s Wisconsin Cheese Curds, C & J Shaved Ice and Sycamore Ice Cream. “The exact schedule for bands has not been set but we know The Earthquakers will be the headline band on Saturday evening. They were here for last year’s event, but they never took to the stage because of the severe weather we had,” Lee said. Other local and regional bands will be Bad Advice, Mo Blues, Boom Swang, Section Ate, Black Cat Mamba and Double Kik. Popular events returning from last year include the Youth Wiffleball Tournament, the Corn Hole Tournament sponsored by First Bank of Berne, pig races organized by the Van Wert YWCA, the “When Pigs Fly” fund raiser for United Way, the Tug-of-War Challenge, and the Wiffleball Homerun Derby and Rib Relay organized by the Van Wert YMCA.


Women rescued in Cleveland happy to be home
Associated Press CLEVELAND — The three women allegedly imprisoned and sexually abused for years inside a padlocked Cleveland house asked for privacy Sunday, saying through an attorney that while they are grateful for overwhelming support, they also need time to heal. Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight remain in seclusion, releasing their first statements since they were found May 6 when Berry escaped and told a 911 dispatcher, “I’m free now.” They thanked law enforcement and said they were grateful for the support of family and the community. “I am so happy to be home, and I want to thank everybody for all your prayers,” DeJesus said in a statement read by an attorney. “I just want time now to be with my family.” The women, now in their 20s and 30s, vanished separately between 2002 and 2004. At the time, they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. Investigators say they spent the last nine years or more inside the home of Ariel Castro where they were repeatedly raped and only allowed outside a handful of times. Castro, 52, is being held on $8 million bond. The former school bus driver was charged with four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape. Prosecutors said last week they may seek aggravated murder charges — punishable by death — for allegedly impregnating one of his captives at least five times and forcing her to miscarry by starving her and punching her in the belly. See WOMEN, page 12

Registration forms for the Youth Wiffleball Tournament, the Corn Hole Tournament, the Tug-of-War Challenge, the Wiffleball Homerun Derby and the Rib Relay are available at the CVB office at 136 E. Main Street in Van Wert. Sponsors of this year’s event include Citizens National Bank, Century Link, K & L Ready Mix, Van Wert Propane, First Federal Van Wert, First Financial, First Bank of Berne, Scott Equity, Three Rivers Credit Union, Elgin Service Center, Federal Mogul, Eaton Corporation, Ayers Mechanical Group and Thatcher Insurance. Lee reminds area businesses that they can join this elite group of sponsors by pledging $250 up to $1,500. Special Sponsorship Packages are available at 4 different levels of support. Call the Convention and Visitors Bureau at (419) 2389378 if you are interested in becoming a Rib Fest Sponsor. Lee also reminds organizers of class reunions that you can avoid extra expenses by holding your class reunion at the Rib Fest. For $300, the Rib Fest will provide your class with a tent, tables, chairs and half-off admission and members can enjoy all the Rib Fest has to offer. For more information, call the CVB at 419-238-9378.

‘Gatsby’ gives ‘Iron Man 3’ a run for its money at the box office
By DAVID GERMAIN The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Gatsby looks almost as great as a superhero at the weekend box office. Leonard DiCaprio’s “The Great Gatsby” partied like it was the Roaring ’20s with a $51.1 million debut that made it a surprisingly strong runner-up to comic-book blockbuster “Iron Man 3.” Studio estimates Sunday put “Gatsby” at No. 2 behind Robert Downey Jr.’s superhero sequel, which pulled in $72.5 million domestically to raise its total to $284.9 million after just 10 days in U.S. theaters. With an additional $89.3 million in its third weekend overseas, “Iron Man 3” lifted its international total to $664.1 million and its worldwide haul to $949 million. “The Great Gatsby” far exceeded expectations by distributor Warner Bros. of a $35 million to $40 million opening weekend. Director Baz Luhrmann’s 3-D adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic was a rare box-office smash for films aimed at older adults during the youth-minded summer season. According to Warner Bros., viewers over 25 made up 69 percent of the film’s audience. “It answers the question that you and I hear all the time from people over 50, ‘There’s nothing for me to see,”’ said Dan Fellman, the studio’s head of distribution. “While every studio has the $200 million tentpoles in the marketplace, you still have those who feel that it’s not directed

Stephenson 1-hits Jefferson, paces Panthers to tourney win
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com SHAWNEE TOWNSHIP — Parkway senior ace right-hander Jordan Stephenson one-hit Jefferson Saturday afternoon, pacing the Panthers to a 6-0 Division III sectional baseball triumph at Shawnee Field. Stephenson (5-3) only allowed three baserunners in his 92-pitch, 64 for strikes, effort: a Ross Thompson solid single to right with one out in the Jefferson sixth; a free pass to Jordan Herron with two down in the fifth; and Austin Jettinghoff, who got aboard on a two-out error in the fourth. Number seven hitter Kane Pontsler and number nine Cameron Roehm led the Panthers (14-9) at the pate with 2-for-3 performances, each scoring a run, to back Stephenson’s gem. Three Jefferson (14-11) right-handers: junior starter Tyler Rice (5-4; 3 2/3 innings), senior Zach Ricker (2/3) and senior Drew Kortokrax (1 2/3) combined to give up seven hits and six runs but only one was earned. They struck out three and did not walk anyone, issuing one run-scoring balk. “We pitched decently. We knew it would be by committee today. That wasn’t the problem,” Jefferson coach Doug Geary said. “We didn’t play well defensively. You can’t give extra outs to teams at this stage, especially like Parkway. They did a good job of manufacturing their first runs. They did what they had to do.” For Parkway mentor Mike Schumm, the defense backed a great pitching performance. “Jordan is a bulldog. He wants the ball and



With one out in the third inning Saturday afternoon at Shawnee, Jefferson junior third baseman Jordan Herron comes up firing on bunt. The Wildcats fell in the sectional baseball game, 6-0, to the Parkway Panthers. (Delphos Herald/Tom Morris) I like that out of a pitcher,” he explained. “He changed speeds and locations very well and was throwing all his pitches for strikes. He got ahead in the count to almost every batter and that makes it easier for him. Defensively, we were outstanding behind him outside of one error.” Parkway got a two-out single by Austin Adams in the bottom of the first. Pontsler beat out a two-out infield single in the second. The Panthers received their first run in the third on a leadoff double by Roehm, a sacri-

fice bunt by Cody Depweg and a sacrifice fly to center by Tanner Bates. Parkway plated three more run in the home half of the fourth, all unearned, in chasing Rice. An error set up three hits, including a run-producer by Roehm. Previously, a ground out by Jarret O’Neill plated Brandon Moorman and a balk on Ricker pushed Stephenson home for a 4-0 edge. Parkway added two more unearned runs in the fifth — chasing Ricker for Kortokrax — on two errors, a sacrifice fly by Moorman and a line shot by Jack Roth. That accounted for the final score. “We couldn’t get anything going against Stephenson. I give him all the credit,” Geary said. “He was really mixing it up with the fastball and a good curve. We’ve been struggling at the plate the last couple of weeks and that continued today.” On the other side, the Panthers made it happen offensively. “We haven’t hit a home run this year, so we don’t have a lot of power. We have to create things,” Parkway’s Schumm said. “We got people on, moved them around and got them in however we had to. We have to have an aggressive mentality for us to be successful at the plate.” Parkway will play Bath at 5 p.m. Friday in tournament play. In the regular season, both teams hit the diamonds again at 5 p.m. today: Jefferson at Elida (makeup game from April 24) and Parkway versus Wayne Trace. See PACES, page 8

Panthers rout Lady Jeffcats in sectional softball
By BRIAN BASSETT DHI Correspondent MIDDLE POINT - Just about everything went right for the Parkway Lady Panthers in their tournament opener against Jefferson at Lincolnview High School Saturday. The Lady Panthers rode 14 hits to plate 12 runs and got a 2-hit shutout from junior Sierra Fent and senior Kylie Snyder to roll to a 12-0, 5-inning win. “We wanted to get a game in. No matter who you’re playing, in the first tournament game where it’s 1-and-done, you want to get a win under your belt, relax and get used to the field,” said Parkway coach Mark Esselstein. Parkway (16-5) could relax a little bit easier after the first inning. Fent struck out the Jefferson side in the top of first and the Lady Panthers put up a 5-spot in the bottom of the first. Sophomore centerfielder Kayla Walls singled before advancing on an error and a passed ball. Junior Rachel King then singled Walls home before a Snyder single and a walk by senior second baseman Lindsey Walls loaded the bases. Sophomore third baseman Terra Walls scored King and Snyder with a 2-run single and sophomore catcher Zoey Pond followed suit to plate Terra and Lindsey Walls. “That kind of set to tone for the game. Everybody could relax a little bit. We got big 2-out hits and drove in runs. That’s the way we want to keep playing,” explained Esselstein of the first inning. Parkway added four more in the home third. Lindsey Walls doubled and scored when Terra Walls singled.

McBride wins 351st game, Kalida ousts Cory-Rawson
By DAVE BONINSEGNA The Delphos Herald zsportslive@yahoo.com COLUMBUS GROVE — Kalida head baseball coach Jim McBride is retiring at the end of the season after a long and stellar career. Saturday afternoon in the first round of the sectional tournament, he collected his 351st victory as the Wildcats defeated the Cory-Rawson Hornets 5-1 and moved on to face Columbus Grove on Tuesday for the sectional championship. Brent Hovest went 2-for-4 on the afternoon with a double, triple and a pair of runs batted in, while Austin Swift pitched a complete game, striking out seven. Swift helped out his own cause in the third with a 1-out single; the Wildcat hurler stole second and moved to third on a passed ball. Swift’s batterymate, Neil Recker, followed with a run-scoring single that gave Kalida a 1-0 lead. The Wildcat lefty put Cory-Rawson down with near ease in the next three innings, setting the side down in order in the fourth and fifth innings. In the Kalida half of the fourth, Rob Kleman led off with a single; one out later, Randy Zeller followed with a base hit to put runners on first and second. With two outs, Kyle Vorst singled home Kleman and a batter later, Hovest cleared the bases with a triple. Swift singled home Hovest a batter later as

Kalida brought four across in the inning to give them a 5-0 lead. Trent Gerding came on in relief for the ‘Cats in the fifth and gave up a single to Tyler Harris. Harris came in to score after a stolen base and passed ball. In the second game of the afternoon, the Leipsic Vikings scored a run in the first and third innings before adding three in the fifth to outlast the Pandora-Gilboa Rockets 5-2 and move on to face Miller City on Wednesday.

Cougars use 10-run first inning in defeating Lady ’Dawgs
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com BATH TOWNSHIP — Van Wert put up a 10-spot in the top of the first inning versus Elida Saturday morning/afternoon and made it stand up for a 20-9 Division II 5-inning fast-pitch softball tourney victory over Elida at Bath High School. The Lady Cougars (10-9) took advantage of seven Lady Bulldog (10-11) miscues in the field and other plays that needed to be made but weren’t that opened the door for 17 unearned runs. “We had a lot of errors and you don’t beat a junior high team by making so many. However, this has been the story of our season,” Elida coach Mike Eilerman said. “We’ve had good moments and then we turn around and have moments like this. It snowballs, too. I felt we had two good days of practices but since we beat Van Wert earlier, we might not have come out with the intensity we should have; Van Wert did. We’d given up only one home run before today and Bigham hits two. Credit Van Wert for putting the ball in play.” Senior Brittany Bigham had the big bat out of the third spot in the Cougar lineup, hitting 3-for-4 with a pair of round-trippers in that 10-run first inning (knocking in five runs) and a 2-run double, adding a bases-loaded free pass to account for eight runs batted

in. Sophomore Emily Bair went 3-for-4 (3 runs) in the seventh spot, junior leadoff hitter Hannah Hulbert went 3-for-5 (3 runs, 3 RBIs, 2 stolen bases) and Melissa Roop was 2-for4 (2 runs). Courtesy-runner Amanda Coplin scored three times. Van Wert head man Mike McClure credited Bigham for setting the tone. “We needed that kind of explosion today. She did a nice job of getting us going,” McClure explained. “Defensively, we were very shaky but that has been our pattern all year; we have a young infield. Our pitching was also a bit shaky today because we weren’t

hitting our spots. Thankfully, we kept adding to our lead because of our offense.” Jessica Klausing, who started (2/3 of an inning) and came back in (4 IPs), and Brooke Brown (1/3 IP) gave up a combined 10 hits and nine runs (4 earned) for the Cougars, walking three and fanning two. Elida also used two pitchers: senior starter (and reliever) Aryanna Brown and freshman Michaela Black, combining to yield 14 hits and three bases-on-balls, fanning five. Junior Caitlyn Shroyer (2 runs) and sophomore Sabrina Kline (2 RBIs) went 2-for-4 for the offense. Brown, Black and sophomore Jenna

Halpern each scored twice. The Cougars sent 13 batters to the plate in the first at-bat, chasing Aryanna Brown for Black. They took advantage of two big errors, two free passes and six hits, including 2-run and 3-run blasts by Bigham and runproducing hits by Bair, Hulbert and Melissa Roop. When the final out was recorded, Van wert led 10-0. The ’Dawgs cut the deficit in half in the home half with two errors on the first two batters opening the door. Four hits, including a 2-run single by Kline (Black and Jenna Halpern) and a bases-clearing double to deep left center by Ericka Smith (scoring A. Brown, Shroyer and Kylee Makin) made it 10-5. The Cougars added three more runs in the second, with another error proving prominent, two walks (one bases-loaded to Bigham) and two hits, one a run-producing knock by Hulbert. At the end, it was 13-5, Cougars. Elida got within 13-7 in the home half on a double by Black, a run-producing hit by Halpern and a pair of fielder’s-choice groundouts (plating courtesy-runner Cheyanne Elsea). Four more come home in the Van Wert third on two miscues (scoring Klausing, Bair and Hulbert) and four hits, with Hulbert’s single plating Coplin. in making it 17-7. See COUGARS, page 8

Lady Lancers open tourney with solid win over Bearcats
By JIM COX DHI Correspondent MIDDLE POINT - Lincolnview put together another solid all-around performance in Saturday’s Division IV sectional semifinal, topping an underrated Spencerville team 6-2. The Lancers, now 15-3, will play Crestview Tuesday at 5 p.m. in the sectional final. The Lady Bearcats are 4-17 with three regular-season games remaining. Lincolnview hurler Ashley McClure was the main story in this one, going the distance, yielding two runs, one earned, while striking out four and walking only one. She was remarkably efficient, throwing only 74 pitches, of which 57 were strikes. The Lancers jumped on Bearcat starter Alex Shumate in the bottom of the first, scoring twice. Jodie Doner led off by ripping a single to left. Courtney Gorman bunted perfectly and the speedy Doner, off with the pitch, made it all the way to third, from where she scored on a wild pitch. Shumate then plunked Kaitlyn Brant with a change-up and Baylee Neate drove in Brant with a double to deep center. The ‘Cats closed the gap to 2-1 in the second when Mackenzie Ringwald reached on an error, went to third on a single to center by Caitlin Propst and came in on a bouncer to short by Hanna Keller, when the throw home was a splitsecond late. Lincolnview upped the ante to 3-1 in the third on two Bearcat errors but Spencerville trumped that run in the fourth on a single to center by Haleigh Mull and a bloop double down the right-field line by Shelby Mulholland. The Lancers came back with another tally in their half of the fourth. Julia Thatcher lined a 1-out single up the middle, stole second and came in when Doner lined a double to the gap in left center. That made it 4-2 after four. With the game very much in the balance, the blue and gold added two insurance runs in the fifth. Devonn Springer bounced an infield single up the middle, despite a fine diving grab by shortstop Alyssa Mulholland. Springer moved to second on a groundout, then scored on a bloop single to left by Lauren Calvert. Macey Ashbaugh squibbed an infield single down the third-base line, putting runners on the corners, and Thatcher drove in Calvert with a line single to left. Doner (3-for-4, including a double, 1 run, 1 RBI), Thatcher (3-for-3, 1 run, 2 RBIs) and Springer (2-for-4, 2 runs) led the Lancer offense. The Bearcats’ four hits came from four different batters: Mull, Shelby Mulholland, Propst and Alli Gilroy. Shumate went the distance for Spencerville, giving up six runs, five earned, and 11 hits in her six innings. She struck out five, walked only one and hit two batters, throwing 117 pitches, of which 78 were strikes. “She’s a freshman,” said Bearcat coach Jeff Johnston of Shumate. “She moved the ball around a lot. She mixed the speeds up. She’s got some learning to do but she’s gonna be a good one.” “Spencerville is a very nice team,” said Lancer coach Kent McClure. “Their record may not show it but they’ve got two nice pitchers and they’ve got some nice bats. The Northwest Conference…I tell you…I’m pumped about it. I’m proud of it. I think we’ve shown ourselves pretty well.” “That’s our 11th loss by four runs or less,” said Johnston. “We’re right in everything. It’s just that you gotta learn to win, learn to finish games. We get hits. We just had trouble stringing them together today. I’m real proud of ‘em. They played hard. Nobody quit.” McClure was happy but not exactly elated after the game, possibly due to the fact that the Lancers left nine runners on base. “The last five games now, we’re 4-1, but kind of in a slump,” he added. “We hit the ball but it wasn’t clutch hitting. We’re just not hitting it when we need to get those runs in. But our girls never give up. The mindset is different now for Lincolnview softball.” Spencerville visits Ottoville 5 p.m. tonight.

Late run lifts Lancers by Bearcats in baseball
By KEVIN WANNEMACHER DHI Correspondent CONVOY – Kyle Williams hit a RBI single that scored Nick Leeth in the top of the sixth inning and Lincolnview made it stand up, posting a 5-4 victory over Spencerville in Division IV sectional baseball action at Crestview Saturday. The Lancers advance to meet secondseeded Ottoville on Wednesday at Crestview in a 5 p.m. start. Tied at 4-4 entering the sixth, Spencerville’s Tanner Koverman got strikeouts of Troy Patterson and Austin Leeth to open the inning. A walk to Nick Leeth opened the door for the Lancers. Leeth stole second before Williams hit a 1-2 pitch for a single to left to score Leeth and give Lincolnview a 5-4 lead. After Williams stole second, the Lancers’ Matt Oechsle walked to put two runners on. However, Koverman enticed Conner McCleery to fly out to rightfielder Sean Monfort to end the inning. Neither the Bearcats nor Lancers would score in their next at-bats, keeping the score at 5-4 going to the bottom of the seventh. With freshman Jalen Roberts on the hill, Koverman grounded out to start the inning before James Schaad struck out. Joel Shimp

“We just came across a quality team; they’ve won a lot of ball games this year against good competition. We knew coming in it would be a battle; I thought overall we just had a few miscues that hurt us early,” said Jefferson coach Josiah Stober. Fent got the win for Parkway. She went three innings, allowing one hit

while walking none and striking out six. Snyder went two innings in relief, also allowing one hit while walking none and striking out two. “They’re both good in different ways,” Esselstein added of his pitchers. “We don’t have any more regularseason games scheduled, so we need to keep both sharp.” Senior Kayla Kill got the first hit for the Lady Wildcats

in the top of the third. The hit could have easily been ruled an error, as it was bobbled by two Lady Panther fielders. Junior Kamie Pulford added the only other Jefferson hit. Senior Taylor Branham got the loss for Jefferson. She went four innings, allowing 12 runs, 11 earned, on 14 hits. She walked one and struck out two. Henderson led Parkway by going 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBIs and two runs score. King went 3-for-3 with two RBIs and a run. Terra Walls was 2-for-2 the three RBIs and two runs scored. “What I like best is that when we made outs today, they were pretty hard-hit outs. We did a good job of waiting for pitches to hit,” added Esselstein. Stober said that the team has improved throughout the season. “We’ve been teaching them all year to learn from every situation. From where we were at the begining of the year to where we are now, they’re been learning,” he added. The win advances Parkway to play Ottoville (2-9) at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Lincolnview. Jefferson continues in regular action at home versus Ottawa-Glandorf today.

Elida got within 17-9 in the home fourth on two singles (A. Brown and Shroyer), a ground-out RBI by Makin and a run-producing bloop to right by Kiel. The Cougars tacked on their final three runs in the fifth on an error, a passed ball and two hits, including a 2-run double to center by Bigham. Elida needed to score at least two runs in the home half to extend the game and got two runners on with one down but couldn’t tally again.

The Herald — 9

If you have a legal problem or question, you may want some professional advice. The information you receive can help you make some very important decisions. These law firms invite you to visit them for sound, professional advice.

Legal matters seem to arise when you are least expecting them, which means you have to find a good lawyer quickly to get things settled. With all the names in the phone book it is difficult to know who to hire and what questions to ask. This article gives you ten important tips for you to follow to get the best lawyer for your needs. What to look for in a criminial lawyer 1) Is the lawyer experienced with your matter? There are many different kinds of law, and the lawyer your best friend recommended may not have expertise in the area of your situation. For example, an arts and entertainment lawyer would not handle a divorce case and a criminal lawyer wouldn’t feel comfortable handling a patent law question. To find your perfect lawyer you need to know his area of expertise. 2) If you have special needs, make sure the lawyer can accommodate you before hiring them. It’s important to make sure you can communicate with your lawyer and be comfortable while settling your legal matter. If you have special needs or items that need to be taken into consideration you might want to use those needs to help you narrow down your lawyer search. For example, if you’re not a native speaker of English, maybe a lawyer that is bilingual would be more helpful when it comes to understanding the full details of your case. 3) As with any professional, ask for references and make sure you follow through with calling them. A good lawyer takes pride in his work and would be happy to have you talk to satisfied clients. Ask these references if they were satisfied with how the lawyer handled the case, if they were charged fairly and if they had any reservations about using them again. 4) Is the first appointment free? When calling lawyers you’ll want to find out if the first appointment is free so you can plan ahead with your budget. Some lawyers offer an initial consultation period that’s free so they can get to know you and assess if the case is right for them. During this period they will hear your matter, discuss the direction to follow to solve the problem and let you have a basic estimated cost. 5) What are my options? Will you pursue settling the matter out of court? It’s good to know what legal options you’ll have, if any. A good lawyer should be able to give you a brief outline of the steps he will take to get to the bottom of your case. Your case

may be complicated and have many steps with motions to be filed and motions hearings. It could also be a simple case that can be settled in a single court date. If you’re lucky, the matter can be settled out of court, saving you a bundle in court costs. Your lawyer will know the best course to take for your personal interests. As always, ask questions if you don’t understand what your lawyer is telling you. 6) Who will handle my case? In a small law firm you may have only a lawyer working on your matter, but in larger firms your lawyer may assign your case to a paralegal or another associate that helps out in the law firm. Having these assistants work with the lawyer on your case may help to keep the costs down. 7) If I have a question, how long can I expect to wait to hear back, and how will you communicate? Communication is a big key to solving your legal matter in an efficient way. You don’t want to be calling your lawyer every day as that can be annoying and distracting, especially if there’s nothing new going on in your case. Remember that your lawyer will have court dates and times he’ll have to attend for other clients so when you make a call you may not hear from him until the end of the business day. Plus, you will pay out of your own pocket for each phone call your lawyer makes on behalf of your case, including to you. Ask what time of the day is best to reach the lawyer. If you can, save up your questions and ask several at a time to make your phone call more efficient, but don’t hesitate to call if you have a pressing matter that can’t wait. You should also find out how the lawyer prefers to communicate. Some lawyers may prefer to phone while others might find a quick email easier to answer. Others may like to drop a letter in the mail. As long as you know when and how you’ll hear from your lawyer you can keep your mind on more pressing matters. 8) What will it cost for your services? In the first consultation visit your lawyer won’t know the exact amount you’ll be charged for his services but he should know a ballpark figure from working on other cases like yours. In most cases you’ll be expected to pay a retainer fee upfront. A retainer fee is a fee you’ll pay to secure the lawyer’s services, to hire him. Don’t be afraid to shop different lawyer’s fees. Sometimes you can negotiate your fees or get lower fees if a junior lawyer or a paralegal handles some of your case.

9) What are the legal fees, and how will I be billed? There are two kinds of legal fees: professional costs and disbursements. Professional fees cover a lawyer’s time and effort dealing with your case. For example, time spent in court, in meetings or on the phone with you and time spent researching information are covered in this area. There are different ways of charging for professional costs: An hourly rate may be applied to some types of cases. A flat-rate fee could be applied for the amount of work the lawyer will perform. For example, if you need the lawyer to simply prepare some documents you may be charged a flat rate fee. No win, no fee agreement. This means if you don’t win your case in court, you won’t have to pay for the lawyer’s time. Usually you will have to cover any disbursement costs. Disbursements are costs a lawyer pays out to people associated with the case, such as fees of assorted reports, cost of making copies and other such expenses. In most cases, even a no win, no fee agreement you’ll have to pay your lawyer for disbursements. You’ll want to make sure your bill outlines the different services you are paying for. For example, if he’s spent 3 hours on the phone with you it should be outlined on your bill. Make sure you understand all of the charges and ask questions if you don’t. Also, asking when the lawyer expects to be paid will help you to sort out your budget and get your funds in order. 10) Ask for brochures and a copy of the retainer agreement to go over to help you make a decision. Most lawyers and law firms will have brochures and other informational paperwork describing their services. The retainer’s agreement is a form that sets up the schedule of fees and payments up front. You’ll want to read this carefully to make sure you understand what you’re getting into before hiring this lawyer. In Conclusion. Having to deal with a legal matter can be frustrating and costly, especially if you don’t choose the right lawyer to handle your case. Knowing what to ask and what to expect will help you find the right lawyer so you can focus on getting your legal problems settled.

The Herald – 11

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, MAY 14, 2013 There are strong indications that you will make constructive changes in the year ahead that will benefit you materially. You’ll have to work hard regardless. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don’t hesitate to push your plans forward if you feel that your thinking is superior to that of your colleagues. In all probability, you’re right. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Something you diligently worked on in the past but temporarily put aside can be revitalized. Your project has more promise than ever. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Someone quite inspirational could enter your life. This charismatic person will turn out to be a groundbreaking force in your life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you and your colleagues have put forth the necessary effort, a project should come to a satisfactory conclusion. Be sure to give credit to each and every participant. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You’ll have a marvelous way of expressing yourself that will capture the attention of your listeners. Be sure to talk about your latest ideas and interests. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Once you set your mind on something, you’re not likely to be deterred. If you want to bring another into the picture, be sure he or she shares your motivations. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Two associates could become stronger allies if you show them how they can fit in with and how they would benefit from your goals. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A large chunk of your time will be spent helping a friend sort out his or her affairs. Luckily, it’ll be a task that you’ll relish. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Conditions in general should be rather harmonious. Your greatest benefits are likely to be derived from one-on-one social engagements. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you can, you should try to spend time on your favorite pet hobby. Having a little fun will lift your spirits and do wonders for your overall outlook. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Your energies are likely to be directed toward social pursuits rather than mundane or worldly affairs. It won’t be a waste of time; you need this change of pace. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -The time is right to finalize material negotiations, so if you’ve been haggling over money with someone, this is the day to seal the deal. WEDNESDAY, MAY 15, 2013 You should be able to notice some steady improvement in several matters of considerable importance. Be content with the speed of your progress instead of trying to rush things along. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Although your prospects for personal gain look good, don’t expect to become a millionaire overnight. Be grateful for the profitable developments that come your way. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Be logical and practical about your financial dealings, but by the same token, don’t discount any of your hunches. Your intuition might be sensing something you’re missing. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A surefire way to guarantee that your friends will speak well of you is to speak highly of them. However, make sure what you say is sincere, not just flattery. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The race will go to the smart and not necessarily to the swift in careerrelated matters. Be sure you use your head wisely, so that you can be numbered among the winners. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Those that aren’t tuned into your wavelength will prove to be a big bore. Try to associate with companions whose likes and dislikes parallel yours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Timing is important when you are trying to promote something that could be financially beneficial. Wait to make your pitch until you have your prospect’s full attention. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you have to make a critical decision, get as much feedback from others as you can. Some of their input could reveal important aspects that you’ve overlooked. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- This is a good day to talk to the boss about some changes that you feel would help the operation. If it makes sense, your superior will be interested. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- When dealing with others on a one-on-one basis, “Judge not lest ye be judged” is a good adage to keep in mind. Your associates will emulate your behavior. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- When in conversation about critical decision, the debate won’t be won by the person who has the last word. Go for quality, not quantity. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You’re an extremely effective communicator, so don’t waste your time on idle chatter. Use your skills to charm people who can help advance your interests. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Someone with your interests at heart will show you a procedure that could strengthen your financial position. It would be smart to follow his or her suggestions.

12 – The Herald Monday, May 13, 2013 Information submitted PUTNAM COUNTY — Four area high school seniors have been awarded Edward A. and Ettie M. Rieman scholarships for 2013. The awards of $1,000 each are presented by the Putnam County Educational Service Center to outstanding graduates of any Putnam County high school. Applicants are judged based on academic, community, athletic, church and civic achievements. Edward A. Rieman was a life-long resident of Putnam County, county commissioner, teacher and superintendent of Miller City-New Cleveland schools. In addition, he was a veteran of the U.S. Army and a 1998 inductee into the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame. His wife, Ettie, was a native of Putnam County and a long time member and officer of the Putnam County Historical Society. She helped publish the book “Blizzard of 78” — a compilation of the experiences of Putnam County residents during the epic blizzard of 1978. Over the past 13 years, 50 Putnam County seniors have been awarded Rieman scholarships. Cory Fischer of Ottoville High School has stellar academic credentials and ranks near the top of his class.

The allegations were contained in a police report that also said Berry was forced to give birth in a plastic kiddie pool inside the home. A DNA test confirmed that Castro fathered the 6-year-old girl, who escaped the house with Berry. After nearly a decade of being away, the three women need time to reconnect with their families, said attorney Jim Wooley. Knight, who was the first to disappear and the last of the three released from the hospital, thanked everyone for their support and good wishes in her statement. “I am healthy, happy and safe and will reach out to family, friends and supporters in good time.” Berry added: “Thank you so much for everything you’re doing and continue to do. I am so happy to be home with my family.” The attorney said none of the women will do any media interviews until the criminal case against Castro is over. He also asked that they be given privacy. “Give them the time, the space, and the privacy so that they can continue to get stronger,” Wooley said. The Associated Press does not usually identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault, but the women’s names were widely circulated by their families, friends and law enforcement authorities for years during their disappearances and after they were found. Donations are pouring into funds set up for the women. City Councilman Brian Cummins said $50,000 has been raised with the goal of creating a trust fund for each in hopes of making them financially independent.

When the time came to find a job eight years ago, Smith applied at Van Wert County Hospital because she wanted to work in a smaller community. “While I was in college, I worked in emergency management doing secretarial and clerical work in Bluffton, Ind., which is where I’m from,” she said. “I had interviewed at Van Wert while I was in school and I saw they had a position open. I was interested in working in a small town, so I applied. I started out part-time and eventually changed to full-time hours. I’ve been here ever since.” For Smith, the worst thing about her job isn’t even something she considers negative. “It takes a lot of dedication, which isn’t really a bad thing,” she said. “Sometimes the hours can be odd. You don’t always get the normal 9-5 day and sometimes you might have to sacrifice time with your family to fill your role at the hospital.” Unusual hours aside, the pros in Smith’s job far

outweigh the cons. “Within the last year, the hospital has really updated the department. I’m really enjoying the new equipment and learning about all the bells and whistles,” she said. “It’s nice to work in such a beautiful facility and that’s something we take a lot of pride in here. I love the investigative aspect of the job. I like that we’re helping to diagnose people, helping them get the treatment they need. It’s a very exciting field. You never know who you’ll be treating or what you’ll be doing. You go where the need is and I like that. “My favorite part is the satisfaction I get knowing I’m helping people get well. We’re just another piece of the puzzle, so to speak. The field doesn’t get a lot of respect usually, but it is important. I take a lot of pride in my job and I try to give it 100-percent every day.” Smith lives in Decatur, Ind., with her husband, Scott. They share three children, Bristol, Randal and Becka.




Answers to Saturday’s questions: Bob Dylan want to join pioneering rock ‘n’ roller Little Richard’s band, according to his 1959 high school yearbook. Dylan, whose birth name is Robert Zimmerman, attended Hibbing High School in Hibbing, Minn. The 2-inch-long pistol shrimp is one of the noisiest animals on earth. It makes a noise that can reach up to 218 decibels — 30 decibels higher than the sound made by the blue whale. It does this by snapping its over-sized pincer to fire off a 60-mile-an-hour blast of water that creates a low-pressure bubble with an internal temperature that is hotter than the sun. The bubble quickly bursts, emitting a high-decibel boom that stuns the tiny shrimp’s prey and provided it with food. Today’s questions: What Christmas song was written on a hot summer day by two songwriters who were hoping that wintry thoughts would cook them off? What is an onychophagist? Answers in Wednesday’s Herald.
