BY ALEX WOODRING DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com missing.” The 911 log reveals Grothause telling dispatchers that while she was at work, she was unable to reach her son, Blaine, who had failed to show to board the bus for a class trip to Washington, D.C., causing her to return to her El Crest home at North Perry Street in Ottawa. Upon her arrival, she discovered the scene she described in the 911 call. In addition, missing was her car, a 2007 Chevy HHR. Grothause was uncertain of where the gun came from but believes it may have belonged to housemate Vickie Fay’s former boyfriend but it was thought to be in storage. The logs confirm the gun came from a storage unit at Gossard Storage in Lima, which police searched during the investigation. According to the sheriff’s detail call sheet, Ottawa Police first arrived on scene at 5:36 a.m. With concerns the missing teens may be suffering from severe blood loss, the police first contacted all local hospitals. However, five minutes later, all hospitals reported no signs of the teens. At 6:30 a.m., police found

OTTAWA —With a pretrial looming for the 17-year-old facing grand theft auto charges in conjunction with the recent deaths of two local teen brothers on May 9, officials are being tight-lipped about their investigation. However, on Wednesday, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department released the 911 call made by the mother of the two deceased teens and detail call sheet. Records show that upon Michelle Grothause’s arrival at her home on May 9 to check on her 14-year-old son, Blaine Romes, she discovered a large amount of blood and a handgun. Missing were Blaine, his brother, Blake Romes, 17, and a third teen who lived in the home, whose name has previously been released but is now being withheld. “I need a deputy to come to my house,” Grothause said during a 911 call at 5:30 Delphos Youth Soccer a.m. “We have three boys sign-ups extended that are missing, I found a The deadline to register gun at the house and there is for the fall season of Delphos blood in my place.

DELPHOS — After having worked in the field of interior design, Mitsie Stechschulte developed an eye for aesthetics. So when her friend Kathy Feathers opened a boutique two years ago and offered her a job, Stechschulte felt it was just another way to do what she loves. “Helping to put together a home was something I really enjoyed. I think it helps with this job because I consider them very similar,” she said. “Dressing a room or dressing a body, either way it’s a blank canvas and you’re dealing with finding different colors and styles that work.” Basketball camps slated Stechschulte says part of her job at in Delphos Kathy Anne’s Boutique is helping cusBoth St. John’s and Stechschulte adds a finishing touch to a summer display tomers assemble ensembles, including Jefferson are taking appliSee EYE, page 10 everything from accessories to shoes. at Kathy Ann’s Boutique.

“Helping a customer put together an entire outfit is something I do on an almost a daily basis,” she said. “That’s something I think we’re known for; people know they can come in here and we’ll help them find something from head to toe.” In addition to helping customers, an average day for Stechschulte could involve everything from setting up products on the sales floor to the occasional cleaning duty. “The first thing is obviously customer service, taking care of them when they walk in, helping them find what they need and then ringing them up,” she said. “If there aren’t any customers, we’re doing the ordering and unboxing merchandise or putting together displays. I’ll do pretty much anything that needs done, right down to scrubbing the toilet.”

Friday, May 17, 2013


By The Associated Press Today is Friday, May 17, the 137th day of 2013. There are 228 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 17, 1973, a special committee convened by the U.S. Senate began its televised hearings into the Watergate scandal. On this date: In 1510, Early Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli died in Florence, Italy; he was probably in his mid 60s. In 1792, the New York Stock Exchange had its origins as a group of brokers met under a tree on Wall Street. In 1849, fire erupted in St. Louis, Mo., resulting in the loss of three lives, more than 400 buildings and some two dozen steamships. In 1938, Congress passed the Second Vinson Act, providing for a strengthened U.S. Navy. The radio quiz show “Information, Please!” made its debut on the NBC Blue Network. In 1946, President Harry S. Truman seized control of the nation’s railroads, delaying — but not preventing — a threatened strike by engineers and trainmen. In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, unanimously struck down racially segregated public schools. In 1961, Cuban leader Fidel Castro offered to release prisoners captured in the Bay of Pigs invasion in exchange for 500 bulldozers. (The prisoners were eventually freed in exchange for medical supplies.) In 1987, 37 American sailors were killed when an Iraqi warplane attacked the U.S. Navy frigate Stark in the Persian Gulf. (Iraq apologized for the attack, calling it a mistake, and paid more than $27 million in compensation.) Ten years ago: A top Vatican official, Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, acknowledged what many observers had long suspected — that Pope John Paul II was suffering from Parkinson’s disease. A German tour bus overturned on a highway in France, killing 28 people. A Palestinian suicide bomber blew himself up in the West Bank city of Hebron, killing an Israeli man and his pregnant wife. Five years ago: Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., was flown to a Boston hospital after suffering a seizure at his Cape Cod home (he was later diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor). Nearing the end of his five-day Mideast trip, President George W. Bush held a rapid-fire series of diplomatic meetings at the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheik in Egypt. Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown ran away with the Preakness (however, the horse’s Triple Crown quest ended three weeks later when it finished last in the Belmont Stakes). One year ago: Washington’s envoy to Israel, Dan Shapiro, told the Israel Bar Association the U.S. had plans in place to attack Iran if necessary to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons. Donna Summer, 63, the “Queen of Disco,” died in Naples, Fla. Frank Edward “Ed” Ray, the California school bus driver hailed as a hero for helping 26 students escape after three kidnappers buried them underground in 1976, died at age 91. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Peter Gerety is 73. Singer Taj Mahal is 71. Singer-songwriter Jesse Winchester is 69. TV personality Kathleen Sullivan is 60. Actor Bill Paxton is 58. Boxing Hall-of-Famer Sugar Ray Leonard is 57. Actor-comedian Bob Saget is 57. Sports announcer Jim Nantz is 54. Rock singer-musician Page McConnell is 50. Actor David Eigenberg is 49. Rhythm-andblues musician O’Dell (Mint Condition) is 48. Actor Hill Harper is 47. TV personality/ interior designer Thom Filicia is 44. Singer Jordan Knight is 43. Rhythm-and-blues singer Darnell Van Rensalier (Shai) is 43. Actress Sasha Alexander is 40. Rock singer-musician Josh Homme (HAHM’-ee) is 40. Rock singer Andrea Corr (The Corrs) is 39. Actor Sendhil Ramamurthy (SEN’-dul rah-mah-MURTH’ee) is 39. Actress Rochelle Aytes is 37. Singer Kandi Burruss is 37. Actor Tahj Mowry is 27. Actress Nikki Reed is 25. Actress Leven Rambin is 23. Actress Samantha BrowneWalters is 22. Actor Justin Martin is 19.

One Year Ago Graduation ceremonies for the Fort Jennings High School class of 2012 will be held Friday in the high school gymnasium. Speakers include Saluatorian Tyler Wiedeman with the Welcome Speech; honor speaker Troy Hellman with the Song Speech and honor speaker Aaron Schnipke with the Motto Speech. 25 Years Ago – 1988 Sunrise-Sunset Chapter of the Ohio Child Conservation League held its final meeting of the year at the Topp Chalet. Outgoing president Dolly Shumaker conducted a candlelight ceremony to induct new officers. They are Edy Wieging, president; Carol Odenweller, vice president; Rosie Hesseling, secretary and Mary Ann Hoersten, treasurer. Members and guests of the Delphos Green Thumb Garden Club celebrated the club’s 40th anniversary Monday with a program at the Delphos Country Club. Four charter members of the club, organized on March 2, 1948, belong to the club today. They are Betty Birkmeier, Hortense Fettig, Cleon Miller and Dorotha Peltier. Mike Minnig went 5-for-6, batted in five runs, and was the winning pitcher as Jefferson pounded out a 23-14 decision over Ada Monday afternoon at Jefferson Senior High School. Other leading hitters for Jefferson were Jason Clevenger, Jim Baumgardner, Ryan Sakemiller, Bill Joseph and Mike Closson. 50 Years Ago – 1963 The 88th annual graduation exercise will be held Sunday evening at Delphos Jefferson High School, it has been announced by Robert H. Christy, superintendent of Delphos City Schools. Jack David Koch and William Howard Doyle will graduate with high honors, and Judith Anne Burnett with honors. Students graduating with honorable mention are Diana Lynn Brinkman, Christine Annette Heidenreich, Jack Allen Rozelle, Janis Ann Thompson and Sandra Lee Weaver. The Delphos Royal Rangers will hold a car wash Saturday at Doyle’s Sohio station at the corner of Fifth and Main and Dickman’s Sinclair station on West Fifth Street. The Royals Rangers is the boys program of the Assemblies of God, and this unit is the first chartered outpost in Ohio. Members include Ray Davis, Kim Buzzard, Terry Wisher, Jack Adams, Bill Ford, Rodger Buzzard, Mike Closson, Steve Davis, Charles Kesler and Tom Hiegel. The May meeting of the Miss and Master Chapter of the Child Conservation League at Ottoville was dedicated to mothers and was held in the home of Mrs. Gerald Fischbach. Mrs. Jerome Turnwald, Mrs. Richard Wurst and Mrs. Kenneth Wittler served as assistant hostesses. Mrs. Arthur Rellinger, entertainment chairman, introduced Mrs. Ralph Bendele of Delphos, who gave an interesting demonstration of the art of artificial flower making. 75 Years Ago – 1938 Two games of kittenball were played Monday night in the senior city league. Coombs went on a spree at city field and won from Star Café by a score of 22 to 6. The Star outfit was handicapped by the lack of players. They secured three hits off Adams. Coombs collected a total of 18 hits off Meekins, Hageman and Clair Ditto. Eddie Hanf and his wife, known professionally as Ruth Ingels, will present 290 of their pupils in a revue entitled “Toledo on Parade.” The revue has been produced by Hanf and will be staged in three acts May 19 in Toledo. Mr. and Mrs. H. G. Hanf of Delphos, and others are planning to go to Toledo to witness the show.

Candice Glover wins ’American Idol’
By DERRIK J. LANG AP Entertainment Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — Candice Glover was crowned the new “American Idol” on Thursday after defeating country singer Kree Harrison. The booming 23-yearold R&B vocalist from St. Helena Island, S.C., looked stunned when “Idol” host Ryan Seacrest announced she bested the soulful 22-yearold country singer Harrison from Woodville, Texas. “Three times,” exclaimed a weepy Glover, referencing the trio of times it took before she made it to the finals of the Fox singing competition. After her coronation, an emotional Glover sobbed her way through her new single “I Am Beautiful.” Thursday’s finale also served as a farewell for Randy Jackson, the show’s lone remaining original judge who announced last week that he’s leaving “Idol” to focus on his record label and other business opportunities. The other judges are hip-hop diva Nicki Minaj, pop royalty Mariah Carey and country star Keith Urban. Jackson has served as a judge on all 12 seasons of “Idol.” He first appeared on the panel alongside Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul when the competition debuted in 2002, becoming famous for his easygo-

“Things I Want My Daughters to Know” by Alexander Stoddard, is, as it claims to be, “a small book about the big issues in life.” The book touches upon, among other topics, being careful about what you give up, not saving the best for last, sticking to your plan and when you’ve made your point, sitting down. I love “self-help” books, especially “feelgood, selfhelp” books, if that’s a genre. Well, if it is a genre, then this book falls into it. I think it would make a great gift for a first-time mother to a baby girl. Stoddard, herself a mother, grandmother and author, uses the knowledge she’s gleaned over the years in raising her own children, hoping to pass that information down to her own offspring, as well as many readers as she can in the process. The tone of this book is conversational and it is full of useful, practical advice most every mother would want her daughter to know. Of course, she could simply tell her daughter these things, right? Well, unfortunately, Mom’s not always right there or just a phone call away and it’s a good book to turn to for when you might be missing your mom and are seeking some practical advice on a myriad of topics. W h i l e much of this advice could be deemed “no-brainers,” sometimes common sense isn’t all that common. And sometimes we really just need to see things in writing to get it through our heads. One thing I like about the book is that it can serve as advice for a daughter but also some good reminding advice for mothers, too. So, no, there is nothing groundbreaking in here… nothing too profound or new in the world of common sense, among some of the gems dispensed such as, in really tough times, regularly take time off – although sometimes we just need permission to allow ourselves to do this. Maintain your unique friendships with both sexes is another pearl of wisdom offered here. I agree with this, too. I think, especially as we get older, quality friendships become more and more important. Stoddard also advises readers to overlook things – don’t get completely caught up in keeping an impossibly meticulouslyclean house and know when to pick your battles. All in all, there wasn’t much here I necessarily disagreed with; I just wouldn’t say it’s earth-shattering. Like I said, it’d make a nice gift for a mother of daughters or for your own daughter. Overall, I enjoyed it. Sara Berelsman has an MA in literature and leads the book club at the Delphos Library. Check out her blog at www.sarasoccupiedmind. blogspot.com.

Over $480K donated to kidnapped women

CLEVELAND (AP) — More than $480,000 has been donated to help three Cleveland women who say they were kidnapped and held captive in a home for about a decade. Organizers say the money will go to trust funds for Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Berry’s 6-year-old daughter, who was found with the women last week. Since then, donations have poured in from around the U.S. and several other countries for the Cleveland Courage Funds set up through the Cleveland Foundation and Key Bank. An attorney speaking on the women’s behalf says the donations can help cover counseling, medical care and other immediate needs.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich has signed legislation establishing an object called the Adena Pipe as the official state artifact. The prehistoric effigy pipe was linked to the ancient Adena culture and was found in 1901 in a burial mound near Chillicothe. Students at the Columbus School for Girls

fought for the measure for several years. Fourth-graders at the school began working on the proposal in 2009. Subsequent classes kept pushing it as they learned about the legislative process and the political system. Kasich inked the measure Thursday surrounded by more than 100 of the school’s students.

4 – The Herald

When describing how his disciples should serve the needy, Jesus told a parable about a Good Samaritan who rescued a traveler who had been robbed and left for dead. This businessman didn’t care that his act of kindness took place in public and that the injured man didn’t share his faith. This raises an haunting question for those involved in the church-state struggles surrounding the Health and Human Services mandate requiring most religious institutions to offer their employees, and often students, health insurance plans covering sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives, including “morning-after pills.” As Sister Mary Ann Walsh of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops noted in an online memo: “HHS has such a narrow standard as to who operates a religious ministry, Jesus himself couldn’t pass muster.” After all, the Good Samaritan wasn’t ordained and didn’t work for a church or a nonprofit ministry, noted Stanley CarlsonThies, president of the Institutional Religious Freedom Alliance. He spoke during a recent religion-and-politics symposium at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich., which was streamed online. Also, this businessman provided food and health care and the “very point of the

Was Jesus religious enough for HHS?

On Religion
story” is that he “cared for the injured man even though ... the man was of a different religion,” stressed Carlson-Thies. Today, it would appear that any ministry that follows Jesus “by giving a cup of cold water to anyone who needs it, including those of other or no religion ... has put itself outside the category of a religious employer.” After all, the HHS mandate only recognizes the conscience rights of employers if they “fit a particular tax code definition that applies only to churches and their closely controlled affiliates,” he said. These nonprofit employers must have the “inculcation of religious values” as their goal, primarily employ persons who share their “religious tenets” and primarily serve persons who share those same tenets. The mandate has created a legal storm. Critics are asking whether the White House is promoting a two-tier approach to the First Amendment -- with “freedom of worship” favored over a broader right

to the “free exercise” of religious liberty. Currently, an unprecedented number of lawsuits against the federal government -- 54 cases with more than 160 plaintiffs -- are creeping through the courts. Meanwhile, noted Carlson-Thies, some branches of the government seem confused about what forms of religious work they want to encourage in public life. For example, if leaders of religious organizations want to fit into the exempt category under the HHS mandate, they must be willing to violate the federal rules governing the faith-based initiative that seeks to promote cooperation between religious groups and the state. After all, he said, the faith-based initiative “requires groups that receive federal dollars to serve everyone, without regard to faith.” But there are complications that mandate opponents must acknowledge, said political scientist Leah Seppanen Anderson, responding to Carlson-Thies. For example, many schools, hospitals and social agencies that retain some ties to religious bodies also are willing to hire employees, and admit students, that do not affirm their doctrines or practice their faith. Anderson noted that she teaches at Wheaton College and willingly signs a covenant expressing support for this evangelical school’s approach to life and faith. However, this is not the case on campuses

such as Georgetown University and the University of Notre Dame. Many women work, study and teach there and have not signed doctrinal covenants. “What about these women, then? Why does the religious freedom of these organizations, who choose to hire people who do not ... necessarily share their religious values and convictions” matter so much, she asked, but “these women either have their religious freedom limited or their healthcare options limited?” It would be better, she said, if American public life continued to welcome many different religious perspectives on these kinds of divisive issues, but “that may not be the reality.” In the end, stressed Carlson-Thies, that kind of broad civic tolerance is what must be defended. “To my mind,” he said, “this is the most significant religious freedom challenge in our country in our time -- to struggle against these restrictive trends in order to preserve the freedom of faith-based organizations to serve the public in a countercultural way, to follow what they believe God calls them to do even when those practices differ from the popular consensus.”

many purebred cats, including Maine Coon, American Shorthairs and Persians. Cats that are not purebred, but share these breeds’ genetics, are definitely more at risk. Such was the case for Timmy as he appeared to have his fair share of Maine Coon breeding. Once cats are afflicted with ATE, their cardiomyopathy has usually been longstanding and their prognosis is poor. The majority of cats die or do not respond to treatment, therefore, pet owners will often choose humane euthanasia for this devastating condition. Recovery, when it occurs, can take days to weeks, but there is a very high likelihood of recurrence of ATE or sudden death. Expected lifespan after an ATE is quite short due to difficulties in managing the underlying HCM or recurrent ATE. Out of deep devotion and concern for their beloved cat, Cindy and Gary elected to end Timmy’s suffering by having him humanely euthanized. Timmy’s heart was not the only one “broken,” as the emptiness the couple is experiencing is immeasurable. While pet loss is always difficult, the unexpected losses are, without question, the worst. Timmy’s tragedy reminds me to remind you to know your veterinarian’s after-hours policy as not all veterinarians provide emergency services. In Timmy’s case, and that of many others, time is of the essence to limit pain and suffering. Know who to call and where to go when your pet experiences an emergency as it can mean the difference between life and death. Dr. Bonnie Jones is coowner of Delphos Animal Hospital, which she operates with her husband, John H. Jones, DVM . This column is a tribute to “Sally Soo,” our Siamese mix, that also lost her life to ATE and “Fletcher” Niagu.

Geise strikes out 16, paces Blue Jays past Tigers
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com PERRY TOWNSHIP — The weather was near picture-perfect for baseball Thursday night at Perry High School. St. John’s senior right-hander Curtis Geise was almost as perfect in pacing the Blue Jays to a 5-1 victory in a Division IV sectional final. “Curtis was really on his game tonight. Most of the year, by the fifth inning, he was over 100 pitches already and we had to figure out what we were going to do,” Jays’ coach Ryan Warnecke said. “Tonight, he had his pitches clicking and he was much more efficient. He had his fastball humming and was working his curve well, too. They really never caught up to him.” The Blue Jays (9-13) advance to take on Kalida 5 p.m. Wednesday in the Elida District at Ed Sandy Memorial Field. Geise (6-1) tossed 97 pitches (71 for strikes) as he fanned 16 Tigers; he ceded only two hits and an unearned run, walking no one but hitting one batter. “It was good to finally pitch this well. I’ve been struggling to throw strikes and my pitch counts were affected,” Geise explained. “Tonight, I finally was throwing strikes with my fastball; I’ve got a natural tail to it at the end but had struggled finding the strike zone with it, whereas tonight, it was in the zone and my control was the best it’s been this season. My curve ball has been a steady pitch for me all season.” For Waynesfield-Goshen coach Jeff Schultz, he gave all the credit to Geise. “That’s one of the best, if not the best pitchers we’ve faced this year. All credit goes to him,” he added. “We really couldn’t get much going offensively. They got the lead early but we kept fighting and battling. I’m proud of that effort by my guys.” Geise sent down the first 11 Tiger batters, with Gabe Hennon getting the first hit on a chopper to left field with two down in the top of the fourth. The Jays went up 3-0 in the bottom of the first against Waynesfield-Goshen righty Garrett Miller on a leading Geise (2-for-4) double, a run-scoring single by Ryan Buescher (3-for-4, 3 runs batted in), a force-out by Troy Warnecke, a single by Andrew Metzger and a 2-run 2-bagger by Clay Courtney. The Jays went up 4-0 in the home second on a 1-out free pass to Ben Wrasman (2 runs), a stolen base, an infield hit to short by Geise and a run-scoring knock up the gut by Buescher. The Blue Jays loaded the bases — 1-out walk to Courtney, 2-out single by Drew Wagner and a base-on-balls to Craig Klausing — in the third. However, Miller fanned the next batter, which started a run of seven straight outs. “We started out well swinging the bats but then hit a lull. We had chances to really put it away but didn’t,” Coach Warnecke added. “Give credit to their pitcher for making the adjustment. He had a nice curve and we were swinging and missing on a lot of them. Defensively, we didn’t have to make too many plays thanks to Curtis.” See JAYS, page 7

Lady Lancers create Knights run-rule Musketeers in sectionals 3-way tie in NWC
By BRIAN BASSETT DHI Correspondent CONVOY - If the Crestview Knight baseball team was looking forward to a potential matchup with Minster next week, it sure didn’t show Thursday. The Knights defeated Fort Jennings 10-0 in five innings in Thursday’s Division IV sectional championship game at the Crestview Sports Complex. Junior lefty Damian Helm took the mound for the Knights and didn’t disappoint. The Crestview ace went five shutout innings, allowing two hits while striking out five and walking none. “It was vintage Damo (Helm),” said Crestview coach Jim Wharton. “It pretty much all starts with him and he had good command. When you have Damo on the hill, it gives the kids a little bit of confidence. Today, he was as good as he’s been and we feel fortunate with that.” Despite the lopsided scored, the game was highly-contested for the most part, before the Knights broke free for seven runs in the bottom of the fifth to end the game in run-rule fashion. Senior Kurt Warnecke, the only senior on the Musketeer roster, held the Crestview bats at bay through the first four innings. Of the 10 Knight runs, only six were earned due to four Fort Jennings errors, each of which was costly. “We had our senior pitch his tail off and the guys didn’t back him up today. If we didn’t make the errors, it would have been a 1-0 game going into the fifth inning,” said Fort Jennings coach Eric Schwab. Crestview (15-5) struck for a pair of runs in the first. Junior center fielder Cam Etzler singled and stole second before Helm reached on the first Musketeer error and also stole second. Junior shortstop Bryce Richardson scored Etzler when he hit into a fielder’s choice; senior first baseman Jake Harmon scored Helm on a sacrifice fly to center. Crestview scratched across another unearned run in the second when senior left fielder Venice Roberts By KEVIN WANNEMACHER DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com CONVOY – In a battle of Van Wert County rivals, it was visiting Lincolnview who took advantage of its opportunities and made Crestview pay as the Lady Lancers claimed a share of the Northwest Conference softball championship with a 5-0 victory over the Lady Knights. Lincolnview scored two runs on wild pitches and another on a Crestview error before adding two more runs on a sacrifice bunt, as the blue-and-gold blanked the red-white-and-blue for the second straight game. “First, that is a tremendous softball team and program over there,” commented Lancer head coach Kent McClure. “What they have built in a softball program is very impressive from top to bottom and they have earned a lot of respect. “I thought our girls battled and we were able to take advantage of some chances and manufacture runs,” McClure continued. “We knew coming in tonight that it would be a battle and we would have to find ways to score.” See LANCERS, page 7

OHSAA approves issues
COLUMBUS — Seven of the nine proposed Ohio High School Athletic Association constitution and bylaw revisions passed as voted upon by OHSAA member schools, Commissioner Daniel B. Ross, Ph.D., has announced. Highlighting the voting was approval of a significant change to the Transfer Bylaw but a proposal to change how schools are placed into their tournament divisions for team sports failed for the third consecutive year. Overall, changes were approved to two constitution items and five bylaw items. The change to the OHSAA Transfer Bylaw reduces the penalty for transfer from one year to the first 50 percent of the maximum allowable regular-season contests in any sports in which the student participated the previous year and reduces the number of exceptions for immediate eligibility. This change, which will be applied both retro-

(Delphos Herald/Tina Eley) reached on an error and scored when sophomore right fielder Jordan Roop grounded out to first to make the score 3-0. Warnecke shut out the Knights in the third and fourth innings to take the game to the fifth with Crestview still leading 3-0. “We knew they are a fastball-hitting team, so we mixing in a lot of offspeed stuff, located the fastball well. (Kurt) did what we asked him to do and the guys just didn’t come ready to play today,” added Schwab. Through the first four, Crestview managed only four hits and one earned run on Warnecke. “I think when high school kids get in a tournament atmosphere, they want to do so well, they’re flying out. That last inning, we just talked about using the whole field - using the middle of the field and keeping the front side closed,” explained Wharton. See MUSKETEERS, page 7

actively and prospectively, passed 346 votes to 288 and becomes effective June 1. Highlighting the two bylaw issues that did not pass was a proposal to change how schools are assigned to tournament divisions in the team sports of football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, baseball and softball to address competitive balance. Rather than place schools into OHSAA tournament divisions based strictly on male or female enrollment, an adjusted enrollment count would have been used. This count would have been derived by multiplying a sport-specific factor by the number of students in grades 9-12 on each specific team roster whose parents reside outside the public school district or the attendance zone of the school, then adding that number to the original enrollment count. The proposal failed 327-308 (51.5-48.5 percent).

Lady Bearcats eke by Grove SPENCERVILLE — The Spencerville fast-pitch softball crew needed eight innings to do so but the Lady Bearcats knocked off Northwest Conference foe Columbus Grove 2-1 Thursday night in Spencerville. Alex Shumate led off the bottom of the eighth with a double and Amber Hallard (2-for-2) singled her in to win the game.

(Continued from page 6)

The Tigers got their first run in the fifth on a 1-out 2-base throwing error on a Miller bunt, a single by Lucas Gray and an error on his stolen base, plating Miller. Matt Spillman was hit by a pitch but Geise got the next batter on a comebacker. That started a 7-out game-ending string for Geise. The Jays tacked on their final tally in the sixth on a leadoff walk to Wagner, a 1-out hit batter (Wrasman), a force-out at third by Geise and a chop single to center by Buescher. The Tigers end their season 5-12.

The talk paid off and the Knight bats came alive in the home fifth. Etzler reached on an error to open the frame and Helm scored him with an RBI triple. Richardson walked before junior third baseman Isaiah Simerman ripped a 2-run double. Roberts plated Simerman with an RBI single and sophomore catcher Nate Owens reached on another error before a passed ball scored Roberts and advances Owens to third. Finally, senior pinch-hitter Nick Thomas ended the game with an RBI single which scored recorded a double. Helm had two singles for Crestview while Henry and Bowen added a single each. The Knight loss was the final game for Henry and Brittany Helt, who wrapped up their careers helping Crestview to its 16th NWC championship. “The seniors have had a great attitude this year and I want to thank them for always being good role models and working hard,” Pugh concluded. “They have been great leaders and I want to give them a lot of credit for the attitudes they have shown all season.” Crestview closes the season at 13-10 overall (7-2 NWC), tying for the league crown with Lima Central Catholic as well. Lincolnview, which moves to 17-3 overall (7-2 NWC), takes on Continental in Division IV district action at Elida on Wednesday. The Pirates moved to 14-6 on the season with an 11-0 win over Columbus Grove in the sectional championship.

Owens. To boost the Knight offense even further, Crestview baserunners were a perfect 8-of-8 in stolen-base attempts on the evening. “We knew they had a young kid behind the plate and we knew that we could capitalize on that. We tried to take advantage of that as much as we could today,” said Wharton of the aggressive base running. Junior left fielder Dylan Van Loo and junior third baseman Alex Vetter picked up the only Fort Jennings hits, both singles.

The Knights tallied nine hits on the evening, though no better picked up multiple hits. The Crestview win sets up the much-anticipated rematch with state No. 1 Minster. Minster (21-2) defeated Crestview 4-3 en route to its second straight state championship in 2012. FT.

Lincolnview broke the scoreless tie in the top of the third. Macey Ashbaugh led off with a single to right field and took second on a wild pitch. One out later, Jodie Doner walked before Autumn Proctor reached on a bunt single to load the bases. After Kaitlyn Brant popped out to first, two consecutive wild pitches allowed Ashbaugh and Doner to sprint home for a 2-0 Lancer lead. “All of the girls stepped up and made plays at key times for us,” McClure continued. “That is one of the things about this team. Each girl is capable of coming up with the big hit or finding a way to make the big play for us.” The Lancers added to the advantage in the fourth. With one out, Kelsey Mohr reached on an infield single before Lauren Calvert followed with a single. Knight pitcher Kirstin Hicks enticed Ashbaugh to pop out for the second but the Lancers weren’t done. Mohr stole third and Courtney Gorman, who was a courtesy-run-

ner for Calvert, took second on the following pitch. Julia Thatcher then reached on a Knight throwing error and Mohr scored for a 3-0 Lincolnview lead. Crestview had its best opportunity in the fourth. Terra Crowle led off with a walk before Lancer pitcher Ashley McClure struck out Haley Helm. After Riley Guest laid down a sacrifice bunt to move Crowle to second, Emily Bauer drew a walk and Mariah Henry singled to load bases. Lincolnview, though, escaped without any damage as Nicole McClure popped to Calvert to end the inning. “When we had an opportunity, we weren’t able to come up with that key hit,” commented Crestview head coach Owen Pugh. “That is something we have struggled at the last half of the season.” Lincolnview then put the game away in the seventh. Thatcher opened the inning with a double before Doner popped out to Brooke Bowen at third. Proctor followed with a single that moved Thatcher to third, with Proctor taking second on

the throw to hold Thatcher. Brant laid down a sacrifice bunt that saw Thatcher beat the throw home. Proctor also scored as the throw eluded Crestview catcher Guest to make it 5-0. Ashley McClure then shut the door for the Lancers, retiring the Knights in order to clinch a share of the conference championship. “I have to give a lot of credit to Coach (Calli) Coppus, Lauren and Ashley,” continued the Lancer mentor. “Coach Coppus has taken over the pitch-calling the last few games and has done an outstanding job. Lauren and Ashley also have really done a great job of executing the game plan. “Coach (Brad) Doidge also is a big help,” continued McClure. “He does a super job coaching first base and is just like having another head coach.” Proctor and Devann Springer both had a pair of singles for the Lancers with Mohr posting a double and a single. Ashbaugh and Calvert both had singles for Lincolnview and Thatcher

D e a r Sara: There SARA NOEL is a spray that is used with shoe stretchers. Do you know what is in that formula? -- Carol W., email Dear Carol: You can use equal parts water and rubbing alcohol on the inside of the shoe where you want it stretched (using a cotton ball to apply it). Then use your shoe stretcher and a hair dryer to stretch the shoes. Repeat until you have the desired results. Dear Sara: I sometimes forget to marinate. Is there anything wrong with just pouring marinade onto the meat/poultry and cooking it? -- Pauline, Ohio Dear Pauline: Marinade is pretty strong because it’s concentrated, so using too much directly can result in a flavor that is overpowering. If you’re short on time, you can brush the marinade onto the meat/poultry toward the end of the cooking process. The idea is to enhance the flavor of your meat, so soaking your meat in it overnight isn’t absolutely necessary. Dear Sara: We rarely drink hot chocolate, but happen to have tons of mix. What can I do with it besides make hot chocolate? -- Dob, email Dear Dob: Give some to friends or family, or donate it. You can make chocolate pudding or a chocolate shake, or add it to coffee, pancake batter or oatmeal. You can use it in baked goods such as cakes and muffins, too. Here’s an easy microwave cake-in-a-mug recipe: howto.wired.com/wiki/ Make_Cake_in_a_Mug. Dear Sara: I’m making a breakfast sausage casserole, but I grabbed the regular Jimmy Dean sausage instead of the sage flavor. I have some sage; how much do you think I should mix in with the sausage to flavor it? -- S.S., California Dear S.S.: I wouldn’t add more than 1 tablespoon of sage per pound.

SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2013 There’s a strong possibility that in coming months you will become involved in an endeavor that requires secrecy. It could either bomb or turn out better than you anticipate. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Unless you think for yourself, others will do your brainwork for you. You might not be too happy about what they come up with. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Think through your moves carefully when it comes to financial dealings. Impulsive behavior will instigate numerous errors. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -What others think of you might be more important than usual. Be care that you don’t do anything that could lower the high esteem in which you’re now held. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Follow a previously conceived plan for a project to the letter. On-the-spot changes could seriously gum up the works.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -When socializing with friends, find the balance between cheapness and extravagance. Don’t spend more than you can afford, but don’t hold back, either. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A situation that has been souring a close relationship with a friend can be resolved, if you’re motivated to do it. Both parties must be forthright.

Obama picks budget official to run troubled IRS
By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama picked a senior White House budget official to become the acting head of the Internal Revenue Service on Thursday, the same day another top official announced plans to leave the agency amid the controversy over agents targeting tea party groups. Obama named longtime civil servant Daniel Werfel as the acting IRS commissioner. Werfel, 42, currently serves as controller of the Office of Management and Budget, making him a key player in implementing recent automatic spending cuts known as the sequester. “Throughout his career working in both Democratic and Republican administrations, Danny has proven an effective leader who serves with professionalism, integrity and skill,” Obama said in a statement. “The American people deserve to have the utmost confidence and trust in their government, and as we work to get to the bottom of what happened and restore confidence in the IRS, Danny has the experience and management ability necessary to lead the agency at this important time.” Werfel replaces Steven Miller as acting IRS commissioner. Miller was forced to resign Wednesday amid the growing scandal, though he is still scheduled to testify today at a congressional hearing. Also Thursday, Joseph Grant, one of Miller’s top deputies, announced plans to retire June 3, according to an internal IRS memo. Grant is commissioner of the agency’s tax exempt and government entities division, which includes the agents that targeted tea party groups for additional scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. Grant joined the IRS in 2005 and took over as acting commissioner of the tax exempt and government entities division in December 2010. He was just named the permanent commissioner May 8. When asked whether Grant was pressured to leave, IRS spokeswoman Michelle Eldridge said Grant had more than 31 years of federal service and it was his personal decision to leave. Before he joined the IRS, Grant was a top official at the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation. Grant’s predecessor at the IRS was Sarah Hall Ingram, who is now director of the agency’s Affordable Care Act Office. Ingram was in charge of the tax exempt division when IRS agents first started targeting conservative groups. The IRS said Ingram was assigned to help the agency implement the health care law in December 2010, about six months before an inspector general’s report said her subordinate, the director of exempt organizations, learned about the targeting. Still, the fact that she was in charge of the division when the targeting first started is sure to give Republicans fodder in their fight against Obama’s health care law. The Republican-led House voted 229-195 Thursday to repeal the health care law. Werfel agreed to head the IRS through the end of September, the White House said. Presumably, Obama will nominate a new


California fuels $550 million jackpot
Associated Press SAN DIEGO — The numbers sum up the frenzy that has taken over the Golden State since it became the newest in the nation to join the madness over Powerball, which saw its jackpot soar Thursday to $550 million. California has sold $83 million worth of Powerball tickets since it started selling them in April and overall has accounted for 11 percent of the game’s sales in the country, fueling such fast-growing mega-jackpots like the latest one that has the potential to be a record-breaker. The state expects to generate well above the originally estimated $50 million for public education, California lottery director Robert O’Neill told The Associated Press. “One thing California has brought Powerball is sunshine and good fortune,” he said. “It has surprised us. We’re very happy.” Californians have Nevadans to thank for some of that good fortune. California’s biggest ticket-seller is the Primm Valley Lotto Store, which straddles the state line in tiny Nipton, a 19th century mining and ranching town on the edge of the Mojave desert whose booming lottery sales have put it on the map in modern times. Roxie Handley figured all 80 of its residents would have a ticket in hand by Saturday. That’s if they can find the time. “Here in Nipton, it’s crazy,” said Handley, 59, who manages the Nipton Trading Post, which also sells Powerball tickets. “We’re stocking up on everything. Last night, I heard some people had to wait nine hours in line.” The town is about 35 miles from Las Vegas on the main interstate from the Los Angeles area. Residents of the nation’s No. 1 gambling state do not have access to the lottery. The Nevada state constitution contains a prohibition on lotteries, which are seen as competi-

Emotional day of testimony in Arias trial
By BRIAN SKOLOFF Associated Press PHOENIX — Jurors deciding whether convicted murderer Jodi Arias will get the death penalty heard the victim’s brother describe Thursday how he was hospitalized for ulcers, lost sleep and separated from his wife after his brother was killed. Travis Alexander’s younger brother Steven paused to choke back tears and regain his composure as he recounted the phone call he got from his sister the day his brother’s body was found. “She told me, ‘Steven, Travis is dead’,” he said. “I thought I was dreaming.” The same jury convicted Arias of first-degree murder last week after about 15 hours of deliberations. During the trial’s ongoing final penalty phase, the panel will decide whether to sentence Arias to life in prison or death for the 2008 murder of her one-time lover. Arias cried periodically during the testimony and looked away from jurors. “The nature of my brother’s murder has had a major impact on me. It’s even invaded my dreams,” Steven Alexander testified. “I’ve had nightmares about somebody coming after me with a knife, then going after my wife and my daughter. “I don’t want these nightmares anymore. I don’t want to see my brother’s murderer anymore.” In opening statements, prosecutor Juan Martinez said there are no mitigating factors that should cause the jury to even consider a sentence other than death. The judge had instructed jurors that they could take into account certain things that might help them make a decision, such as Arias’ lack of a prior criminal record and assertions that she was a good friend, had an abusive childhood and is a talented artist. Martinez said none of that matters in regard to the brutal killing. “The only appropriate sentence ... is death.” Defense attorney Kirk Nurmi opened his part by explaining to jurors that their decision ultimately would be the final one. “Your verdict, ladies and gentleman, will determine whether or not Jodi Arias spends the rest of her life in prison or if she is sentenced to be executed,” Nurmi said. He then told the panel they would later hear directly from Arias. “When you understand who Ms. Arias is, you will understand that life is the appropriate sentence,” Nurmi said. Alexander ’s sister Samantha later described for the panel how their grandmother, who raised the vic-

commissioner by then. IRS commissioners serve five-year terms and must be confirmed by the Senate. Werfel won’t need Senate approval because he is a temporary appointment. The Senate, however, confirmed Werfel for his current position without opposition in 2009. Werfel has had several jobs at the Office of Management and Budget and worked there during President George W. Bush’s administration. He has also been a trial attorney in the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. “He is an immensely talented and dedicated public servant who has ably served presidents of both parties,” Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said in a statement. “Danny has a strong record of raising his hand for — and excelling at — tough management assignments.” Former Bush chief of staff Joshua Bolten said Werfel was highly regarded by the Bush White House and that departing Bush budget officials recommended Werfel for controller to the incoming Obama camp after the 2008 election.


tion to the casino industry. Norma Wagoner was among the Nevadans trying their luck. She and a group of friends pooled their money to buy 20 tickets and sent one over the state border to endure the long lines. “Everybody has dreams,” she said. “All it takes is one ticket.” Officials expect the jackpot to keep growing before Saturday’s drawing that could break Powerball’s November 2012 record of $587.5 million. The latest kitty leapt nearly $200 million since Wednesday’s drawing, which was an estimated $360 million. The $550 million jackpot is the second largest in Powerball history and third biggest overall. Lottery officials expect jackpots to continue growing faster and bigger, thanks in part to a game redesign in January 2012 that increased the odds of winning some kind of prize of a lesser amount. On Wednesday, $1 million prizes were won in 16 states, and $2 million prizes were won in two states. California had six tickets among the winning ones Wednesday, including one sold in Nipton. More than half of the all-time jackpot records have been reached in the last three years. The top two all-time jackpots — $656 million from a Mega Millions jackpot and $587.5 million from a Powerball jackpot — were achieved in 2012. Some states, like California, now sell tickets for both games. The last major jackpot win came when a New Jersey man won a $338.3 million jackpot March 23. It is now considered the fourth largest Powerball jackpot in history. For Nipton, folks feel they’ve already won thanks to the boom in business. “It kind of disrupts our peace and quiet,” said Handley, although she admits she too plans to snap up a ticket.

tim, saw her health fail after the killing and died around the time of jury selection. “Travis was the glue in our family,” Samantha Alexander said. She also recalled her brother’s charisma, sense of humor, insight and “huge smile.” “Travis was our strength, our beacon of hope, our motivation,” she said through tears. “Our lives will never be the same. ... We would give anything to have him back.” Steven Alexander recalled seeing his brother for the last time over the Christmas holiday in 2007. “Now when I want to talk to or see my brother, I have to go to a ... 6-foot-deep hole in the ground,” he said. The trial was inexplicably delayed Thursday afternoon after the judge and attorneys met privately. It is set to resume Monday morning when other witnesses will include Arias’ friends and an ex-boyfriend who lived with her for several years in California. Earlier this week, Arias’ attorneys asked to be allowed to step down from the case, but a judge denied the request. Details about the motion were sealed, but legal experts said Arias complicated efforts for her defense when she gave an interview to Fox affiliate KSAZ minutes after her conviction, saying she preferred death over life in prison.

Shortly after BCI arrives, logs show investigators contacted Ottawa-Glandorf superintendent Kevin Brinkman. Two minutes later, they contact Elida schools to inquire if the third teen had shown up for school. Both schools reported back that none of the missing teens were at school. At 9:10 a.m., officers contacted Logan County law enforcement to check Lakeside RV Campground for the missing HHR. The Sidney Police Department reported at 12:14 p.m. they had a possible match of the vehicle at a gas station. Thereafter, officials in Logan and Hancock County report no signs of the missing teens. At 2:08 p.m., after reports the vehicle and one of the missing teens had been found in Columbus, the logs notify authorities to “check for bodies, not just people walking around.” The log reports show the coroner was contacted at 5:30 p.m. to be en route to the El Crest trailer park location and at


6:34 p.m., Love Funeral Home had one of the victims. That same day, police later released a statement saying “the 17-year-old male that was located in the vehicle… gave the location of the bodies of the previous missing juveniles.” According to Lt. Josh Strick, multiple agencies assisted the Ottawa police department in locating the two bodies. The department also stated the bodies were found in two different locations. Unconfirmed reports from several residents of El Crest - who wished to remain unnamed - claimed one of the bodies was found under the house trailer. The [Toledo] Blade reported the other body was found alongside Putnam County Road 7, south of U.S. 224. Judge Michael Borer has ordered the teen be held in the Wood County Juvenile Detention Center. Assistant County Prosecutor Todd Schroeder informed the court the teen could face additional charges later on. “It is premature at this point to say what those charges could be,”

said Putnam County Prosecutor Gary Lammers. “If the facts would warrant and support [a murder charge], it is on the table. But, at this point, I have not seen a report that would give me a clear indication of whether that is appropriate at this stage or not. But we will reserve that right and we will make a thorough review.” Both Schroeder and Lammers stated the investigation is ongoing. Lammers also indicated last Friday a pre-trial could take place as soon as two weeks. “If the facts and circumstances warrant that, all potential charges remain on the table,” replied Lammers when questioned about the possibility of charging the juvenile as an adult. Reports indicate the autopsies on the two slain teens have performed. Authorities are currently withholding the results as the investigation continues. Blake and Blaine Romes were laid to rest Wednesday morning with a service at SS. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Ottawa.

For Stechschulte, the most enjoyable part of the job is also the part that’s most challenging. “When people come in here, they’re usually after a certain item or something for a specific event,” Stechschulte said. “It can be a little challenging at times, trying to make sure they get what they’re looking for. Another challenge I’ve found is trying to get people to think outside the box and try something they normally wouldn’t; something that would look great on them whether it’s a different color or a different style.” “I love working here. Working with the people is definitely my favorite part,” she continued. “I enjoy sending them out with something they look and feel great in, knowing they’re ready for whatever event they’re attending, whether it be for a dinner out, a wedding or a black-tie affair.” Stechschulte lives in Fort Jennings with her husband, Jeff. They have three children: Drew, Connor and Mackenna.
