(Delphos Herald/Stacy Taff) BY STACY TAFF Staff Writer staff@delphosherald.com The quote reads: “…remember those who served, those who fought… those still missing, and those who gave their last full measure of devotion for our country.” Speaker for the ceremonies was 1st Sergeant Paul A. Joseph, who reminded those gathered of the U.S. Armed Forces Oath of Enlistment, where all who serve are required to swear to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” the latter of which he says is becoming the larger threat. “We’ve been hearing about the war on terror for quite a few years now but there is a new war being waged, a war of attrition. Attrition of the truth,” he said. “There is a movement now to change our enduring past, our legacy, history and the facts of how we came to be through the service of our nation. It’s happening in our homes, in our schools. If you want proof, go to any school and pull out a seventh- or eighth-grade history textbook. I was recently allowed the opportunity to do so and in the section about the Vietnam War there was about six sentences, a paragraph. During that war, we lost 58,178 lives and I don’t know about you but I believe that deserves more than a paragraph.” “We are not born and privileged with freedom, just because we were born in America,” he continued. “Freedom is not a right, it’s something that has to be defended every day. We cannot allow the truth, our legacy and our history to be rewritten. It must never be forgotten for if so, then our nation will be forgotten. Abraham Lincoln said ‘we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain,’ lest we forget. Do not forget.” (Read Joseph’s speech in its entirety on page 3A.)

DELPHOS — Despite the cold, wet weather that rolled in Monday morning, a large crowd of Delphos citizens and veterans were present to observe Memorial Day at the Veterans Memorial Park. A highlight of the ceremony was the dedication of a new monument, which was installed on Friday and unveiled Monday morning. The monument, which now stands beneath the archway behind the podium, is between 6 and 7 feet tall and was done by Delphos Granite Works. “It has the Fallen Soldier’s Cross etched on it, with the rifle and the boots,” Rick Schuck, of the Delphos Veterans Council, said. “It has rifles on the sides as well and then it has a quote that Ronald Reagan made down at the bottom.”

‘Lest We Forget’ Memorial Day 2013
By Paul A. Joseph, First Sergeant (ret) What makes today special? We have to first look at how we got here. Our Nation underwent four major conflicts before realizing that it was time to pay tribute to our Nation’s fallen heroes, before Decoration Day was declared. It was later changed to Memorial Day which was originally set on May 30th but later changed to the last Monday in May. And why was that? It was for the convenience of everyone, so we could have another “three day” weekend. Did they do that for July 4th? Or how about December 25th? This was but the start of things to change which leads us to today. As you may have heard many times over the years the famous phrase “Lest We Forget”. For those of you here today that may not fully understand what that means, let me put it to you in plain English. It means DO NOT FORGET! We’ve all seen repeatedly how it has been declared that we are a Nation at war. Well, a new war is being waged, a war of attrition. Attrition of the truth. There is a movement to change our enduring past, our legacy, our history and the facts of how we came to be through the service to our Nation. Do I have proof of this? It is all around us. In our schools, our communities and our nation. I am referring to the “lessons learned” we are sharing with our youth. I’ve made it a point to look at the textbooks we are using in our education system to see just how America’s history is perceived. Just two weeks ago I was looking at a modern American history book for the 8th grade from a friend’s child. As I looked up the Vietnam War, I found approximately six sentences that summarized the war you


Venedocia woman’s website simplifies the search for missing
BY LINDSAY MCCOY DHI CORRESPONDENT news@delphosherald.com VENEDOCIA — The St. Louis PostDispatch recently featured an article about missing children and the impact it has on their families. A Venedocia resident, Meaghan Good, was featured in the article for her website, CharleyProject.org, which contains a database of more than 9,000 unsolved missing adults and children from across the United States. “I have always been interested in missing people,” said Good. “When I was 12 years old, I stumbled across a website for missing people and that is where my fascination began. When I was 17, a lady running a missing person site retired and I assumed running the site for 11 months before I changed the name to the CharleyProject in 2004.” Cases can be searched alphabetically, chronologically, geographically and by those that have most recently been updated. Good not only focuses on those cases that are the most recent and still in the eye of the media but those that have been long forgotten. Chronologically, the first case the CharleyProject highlights is a missing person case from 1910, complete with disappearance information and pictures of Dorothy Harriet Camille Arnold, who went missing in New York City at the age of 25 after she went shopping for an evening gown and never returned to her millionaire family. “For those people that will never be found, this site is a memorial to them,” noted Good. “I feel it is my personal duty to highlight as many of these stories as possible.” The CharleyProject has become Good’s full-time job and will often spend 4-12 hours a day researching information and updating the site. Good’s ultimate goal is for these missing people to be found, and she noted that people have been found thanks to her dedication to this site. In the case of a New Jersey woman’s body being found and left unidentified for years, a police officer working on the case contacted Good and thanks to her extensive detail in her missing person reports, the officer was able to connect the dots and identify the deceased woman, who had gone unnamed for so many years.

Grief Camp set June 18-19
Information submitted

1st Sgt. Paul Joseph could put into a single paragraph. Forgive me for being so bold here today but I believe that 58,182 names on a wall in Washington, D.C. deserve more than a paragraph in a history book. What do you think? Since our nation began, more than 500,000 Americans have paid the ultimate sacrifice in battle and over 250,000 of those have been since 1940. Millions of Americans have served, well over seven million. I do know that YOU know someone who is a Veteran. A father or mother, sister or brother, son or daughter, niece, nephew, cousin or even just a friend. YOU know someone. And you need to ask of them what they did and when. Veterans more often than not will say to you: I was just a cook, or a mechanic, or a clerk or I was never in the war. It does not matter. What they DID was important. Remember, they were first taught how to shoot before they were taught their job in the military. And for my fellow Veterans here today, I have a mission for you as well. We have an obligation to share that truth, that knowledge and our experiences with those who never knew what we endured. Yes, I understand why you may not want to

“talk about it”. I understand that you have some very deep rooted feelings, emotions and even pain knowing the atrocities of war. But I ask that you find the words, find a way to share those things, not so much the atrocities but the good things that we did. And there are many I am sure. We owe it to our citizens to know the truth about our service and our part we played. Abraham Lincoln once said: That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain. He then went on to say: LEST WE FORGET. We are not born and privileged with Freedom. It comes at a price. It is paid for each and every day by Americans who held up their right hand at one time, regardless of whether they were drafted or volunteered and repeated these words: I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution, against all enemies, foreign and domestic… As I recall, I believe we had a recent reminder of what it means to have an enemy of Freedom in the United States. And when they were done taking that oath, it is followed by four simple words that have not changed and those words are: So help me God. There is a movement as well that is trying to change that. Our Nation was founded upon a belief in God, George Washington looked upon and spoke highly of having God in the founding of our Nation. We cannot ever forget these things. That is what I ask of each of you here today. Not to just remember but to carry the torch, the torch of truth. Learn it and pass it on. We cannot allow the truth, our legacy and our history to be re-written. It must never, ever be forgotten for if so, then our nation will be forgotten. Lest We Forget!

“For those people that will never be found, this site is a memorial to them. I feel it is my personal duty to highlight as many of these stories as possible.”
— Meaghan Good With so many cases, Good often comes across a variety of sad and crazy stories. The story that pulled at her emotions the most was the case of a 6-year-old boy who went missing in 2002 and no one noticed he was gone. The boy was passed around between family members and it was years before the family realized he was gone. It is cases such as this that Good wants to highlight to preserve the memory of these people. Good’s job requires a lot of reading, and what sets her site apart from any other missing person’s site is that it combines all the information on a person in one central location. While this requires a lot of Good’s time, it simplifies the search for others who may be looking for every detail in a disappearance. “Meaghan runs this site all by herself,” said her father, Charles Good. “It is her gift to humanity.” Her father provides her with financial support to keep this site up and running as a lot of the databases she must access to gain information require a fee. A medical issue has kept Good from finding other work but thanks for the kind donations of her father, she make make this site a reality. Good believes this is her calling in life and is continually motivated to keep all of these special cases in the public’s eye. With the recent rescue of the Cleveland kidnapping victims, the number of visitors to the CharleyProject website has tripled and continues to surge in numbers. The happy ending in the Cleveland case could have the potential to help other missing people to be found by bringing awareness to this all-to-common issue.

‘Spellbound’ star reflects on a Spelling Bee life
By JOSEPH WHITE The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Of the 85 kids who have won the National Spelling Bee, only one became an instant movie star. For the millions who watched back in 1999, her face is frozen in time. She’ll always be the 14-year-old girl from Tampa, Fla., with the glasses and dark shoulderlength hair, her arms raised while leaping for joy. But that was a half-life ago for Nupur Lala. Like all bee winners, she’s since had to deal with the perks, drawbacks and stereotypes that come with the title. That’s been magnified because the year she won the bee, movie makers were shooting a documentary about the competition. The Oscarnominated documentary was released in 2002. She became a role model for those who realized it’s OK to be nerdy. She became a trend-setter, starting a run in which 10 of 14 national bee winners have been IndianAmerican, including the last five. Today, she’s 28 and finishing up a master’s degree in cancer biology with plans to enroll in the University of Texas Medical School in Houston, having changed course from a career plan that had her researching memory and the brain for three years at MIT. She now aspires to be a physician scientist. “My intellectual inspirations are so meandering. I blame that on the Spelling Bee sometimes,” Lala said with a laugh. “There are so many interesting things in the dictionary to study.” Lala will be watching this week when the 86th Scripps National Spelling Bee takes place near the nation’s capital — her friends tease that her life “shuts down” during the bee — but she’ll see a spectacle that’s changed much since she graced the stage. The finals are now broadcast in prime time. A vocabulary test is being added this year for the first time. And the bee’s popularity has skyrocketed, in



part because of Lala and the other spellers featured in the documentary “Spellbound,” a film that made smart people cool long before “The Big Bang Theory.” “I’m amazed at the sea change,” Lala said in a telephone interview. “Because when I was a speller, that was one thing you totally hid. I remember like not even wanting to tell people what I was doing over the weekend when I was competing in the regional spelling bee. It was that big of a liability. And now I see that, yeah, people want to be nerds. I think that’s great.” Lala is the first to say that winning the national bee has been an overwhelming positive in her life, even if does get tiresome to have people repeatedly asking her to spell her winning word — “logorrhea” — or to realize that her reputation can unfairly put her on a pedestal in an academic setting. “I’ve had people say ‘I expect more of you because I’ve seen what you are capable of,”’ Lala said. “And that’s a huge honor — and also very daunting.” Then there’s another set of emotions she feels every year when her name is mentioned by the Indian-Americans youngsters who now dominate the national bee. All of the recent winners, to some degree, have cited Lala as an inspiration. “It’s absolutely overwhelming,” she said. “And I think especially as I’ve grown older and seeing how much I’ve wanted to emulate people in my life. Yeah, it’s very humbling every time I hear that. It feels like a lot of responsibility, to be perfectly honest. You become very conscious of that.” There have also been a disproportionate number of recent winners interested in the brain and medicine, including several who said they wanted to grow up to be neurosurgeons. Lala pursued an undergraduate degree in brain, behavior and cognitive sciences at the University of Michigan, in part because of her experiences from the bee.

Monte and Renee Linn of Rockford announce the engagement of their daughter, Audrey Renee, to Lee Donald Schimmoller, son of Richard and Joyce Schimmoller of Delphos. The couple will exchange vows on June 1 at Trinity United Methodist Church in Delphos. The bride elect is a 2008 graduate of Parkway High School and will graduate in June from the University of Northwestern Ohio, with an associate’s of applied business in legal assisting. Her fiance is a 2008 graduate of Jefferson High School and a 2012 graduate of the University of Northwestern Ohio, with an associate’s degree in HVAC. He is employed by D&D Ingredient Distributors in Delphos.

Mr. and Mrs. Hubert Horstman of Cloverdale will observe 60 years of marriage on June 9. A private celebration will be held with immediate family. Hubert and the former Agnes Jostpille were married June 9, 1953, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Fort Jennings, the Rev. John Miller officiating. They are the parents of Kay (Joe) Unverferth of Kalida, Dan (Una) Horstman of Delphos, Pat (Randy) Etter of Columbus, Sue (Kevin) Wildenhaus of Plymouth, Mich., and Lisa (Dave) Horstman-Whittle of Knoxville, Tenn. They also have 12 grandchildren and nine greatgrandchildren. Hubert retired from Phillips Display Components and farming. Agnes retired from her cake decorating business and is a homemaker.

‘Fast 6’ speeds past ‘Hangover’ to top box office
AP Entertainment Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — After a lackluster start to the year, the movie industry enjoyed its most robust Memorial Day weekend ever at the box office, with “Fast & Furious 6” speeding to the top spot. The record-breaking four-day weekend generated estimated receipts of $316 million. “Over $300 million for Memorial Day weekend has never happened before,” said box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian of Hollywood.com. “This proves that when you have a great selection of films, audiences will line up at movie theaters in record numbers.” The sixth installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise debuted at No. 1 with $120 million, making it the biggest opening weekend for a Universal Pictures (NYSE:GE) release, according to Hollywood.com. Starring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, the muscle-car action romp took in an additional $158 million internationally. Fans turned out because filmmakers upped the ante, said Nikki Rocco, Universal’s head of distribution. “The creative team, the filmmakers and the studio put their heart and soul into making it bigger and better,” she said. “When you have this many films in the franchise … you have to take it in a new direction.” The street racers battle both a tank and a plane in the film. “It is the very definition of the summer popcorn movie,” Dergarabedian said. “You suspend disbelief, buckle up and go along for that ride.” “The Hangover Part III,” starring Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms, opened in second place. The final chapter in the Warner Bros. raunchy comedy trilogy collected $51.2 million. Paramount Pictures’ “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” which opened last week, added $47 million to its domestic ticket sales, landing at No. 3.

Area track and field to be well-represented at Piqua
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com SPENCERVILLE — It’s all about moving on when it comes to the post-season, whether one is talking about track and field, baseball or basketball. The Tri-County area will be well-represented at the Piqua Division III Regionals starting Wednesday after top-4 finishes in Thursday and Saturday’s Spencerville District finals. The top finisher of all was Spencerville sophomore Kacie Mulholland, who paced the Lady Bearcats to a third-place team finish as she won three solo events: the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes and teaming with Kennedy Sharp, Karri Purdy and Jacey Grigsby to end up fourth in the girls 4x400-meter relay. “I like all the races but I prefer the 400. I feel more relaxed because I feel like I have more time to make up for slow starts,” Mulholland explained. “II have struggled with slow starts all season but have enough to make up for them in all the events. I know with the competition stepping up more and more each week, especially next week, I have to figure out how to avoid those so I can be at top speed quicker. I had my personal record in the 400 today; I hope I can keep getting faster. I also run cross country, which is different because I don’t run the distance events in track and field.” St. John’s senior Will Buettner clinched in three events: anchoring the boys 4x4 relay teams. “We feel like we’ve got a good tradition in the sprints at Jefferson, especially in the relays, over the last several years. There’s some pressure there to continue but we also have some great coaching that knows how to put teams together,” Bishop added. “I and Corinne are the only seniors on our whole team and we learned from the girls that came before about what it takes to do well at this level. We hope we can help the younger girls learn that lesson, about how to carry on the tradition that has been established.” Jefferson senior hurdler Cody Biglow pulled a double-qualification in the hurdles, earning first in the 110s and second in the 300s. “I did well in both; I prefer the 110s but I don’t mind the 300s,” Biglow asserted. “I’ve had good coaching throughout my career; you need it because it’s a such a technique race and you really have to have those basics down to do well. I preferred the weather today because it was a lot warmer than Thursday and you can stay warmed up and stretched out. I will warm up twice before each event anyway to make sure I can ready; you don’t want to pull anything. At the same time, this spring weather has made it more important to be mentally tough; you worry about your race and your technique and not about who’s alongside you. That’s what I will focus on; running my race, as well as being smart on the turns.” See TRACK, page 8



to a second-place finish (Jared Knebel, Mark Boggs and Jake Hays); the second leg of the second-place 4x1 relay — behind the recordsetting LCC quartet — with Luke MacLennan, Ben Youngpeter and Nick Martz; and fourth in the boys open 200. “We seem to be hitting our strides in the relays. We’ve slowly built this team over the course of this year,” Buettner asserted. “This has been a tough year to really work on handoffs, especially early on when the weather wouldn’t allow you to work outside. We all believe we can get faster; we haven’t peaked yet.” The all-senior 4x4 crew was in a jovial mood after the race.

Knebel seemed to sum up the team’s attitude best. “We made the Regional finals in football, the Regional finals in basketball and now we’re heading to Regionals in track,” he added. “We have a look on the track in our performance and we have a look off the track. We have a lot of fun and have great chemistry. Plus, we have great coaches, especially Dan Hermiller, that are really good on relays.” Jefferson senior Chelsey Bishop and freshman Brooke Gallmeier were part of the thirdplace 4x100-meter relay (Corinne Metzger and Taylor Stroh) and the fourth-place 4x2 (Rileigh Stockwell and Brooke Teman). Bishop summed up the mood of the two

Sophomore Sydney McCluer will lead the Lady Bulldogs contingent at regionals as she advanced in four events. Senior Jake Graham will pace the male Bulldogs at Tiffin as he advanced in three events. As a freshman, McCluer didn’t have a memorable district advancing in only one event. Saturday was a more pleasant performance for the youngster as she left the Liberty-Benton complex with two district championships and two runnerup placements in relays. “I’m very happy,” McCluer said. “Last year I made it only to regionals in the 4x2 and didn’t even make it to finals the 100 hurdles. I was really nervous last year and I didn’t let my nerves get to me. I’m really happy with the turn of events.” McCluer was the top seed entering the 100 hurdles and maintained that seed as she won with a time of 15.61. She also was the top seed in the 300 hurdles and advanced in that with a win in 46.36, nearly a full second over Arlington’s Kelsey Inbody. McCluer’s times in the hurdles were personal-bests for the season. In 800 and 400 relay finals, the Bulldogs finished second to Van Buren. In the 800 Relay, the team of Raiya

Flores, McCluer, Cassie Stechschulte and Julie Wynn were second in 1:47.92 The 400 Relay squad of Flores, Wynn, Jessi Smith and McCluer ran a 51,65 for second place, nine-tenths of a second behind the Black Knights. Wynn picked up a third regional bid when she finished third in the 200 dash (26.68). Stechschulte garnered a second regional bid when she finished second in the high jump (5-2). Annie Schramm was third in the shot put (37-10), which was a personal best, and Megan Verhoff was second in the discus with a top throw of 120-9. “We ran about as well as we could,” Bulldog coach Tim Staley said. “Times are coming down as the temperatures go up. Sydney McCluer ran two nice hurdle races and the relays. Julia Wynn ran well. We did well in the field events with some surprises. Annie Schramm did really well popping a big throw for her.” Graham had a solid meet for the Bulldog boys as he left the meet with three wins and one district record. The record came in the 3200 meter run as he ran a 9:59.71 to break the existing record of 10:07.82 by Mark Berton of Fostoria St. Wendelin in 2010. Teammate Alex Shafer was second in 10:24.14.

Votto’s HR in 8th lifts Reds over Indians 4-2
By MARK SCHMETZER The Associated Press CINCINNATI — A medium-deep fly ball by Joey Votto would’ve done the trick. He did better than that. Votto hit a tie-breaking, 2-run homer in the eighth inning, lifting the Cincinnati Reds over the Cleveland Indians 4-2 Monday in the opener of their intrastate matchup. “I just wanted to put the barrel on the ball and at least get a sacrifice fly,” said Votto, who began the day leading the NL in hitting at .353. “It was important to not strike out there or roll over and put the ball on the ground.” Votto won this interleague game with his ninth homer, tagging left-hander Nick Hagadone (0-1). The reliever was called up from Triple-A earlier in the day when closer Chris Perez was put on the disabled list with a sore right shoulder. Shin-Soo Choo led off the Reds’ eighth with a single and moved around on a passed ball and Zack Cozart’s sacrifice bunt. With the Indians’ infield drawn in, Votto followed with an opposite-field shot into the seats in left, lifting the Reds to their sixth win in their last seven games. Votto’s homer came with NL RBIs leader Brandon Phillips on deck, followed a conference on the mound. Reds manager Dusty consecutive loss and sixth in their last seven games. Reds starter Mike Leake allowed one earned run and five hits in 7 1/3 innings, striking out seven to match his season high. He left with a no-decision after giving up Giambi’s homer. “Even that pitch wasn’t a bad pitch,” Leake said. “He did a very good job with it. I thought I did a pretty good job today, as a whole. That’s a very good lineup. I was going after them, trying to make them hit my pitch.” Ubaldo Jimenez, 3-0 in five previous career starts against Cincinnati, gave up four hits and two runs in seven innings. Choo, sent to the Reds with infielder Jason Donald and cash for outfielder Drew Stubbs and infielder Didi Gregorius in December, led with his 10th homer of the season. The Indians took advantage of an error by Phillips, another former Indians player, to tie it in the fourth. Jason Kipnis singled and took third when Phillips mishandled Nick Swisher’s grounder. Carlos Santana’s sacrifice fly made it 1-all. Cozart led off the sixth with a double that just nicked the outside of the left-field line, advanced on Votto’s groundout to second and scored on Phillips’ sacrifice fly.

Baker was asked if he was surprised first-year Cleveland manager Terry Francona pitched to Votto instead of perhaps walking him to face Phillips, who’d already hit into one double play in the game. “I never second-guess the other team’s manager,” Baker said. “You’ve got to take your shot at some point in the game. Votto won that time.” The conversation dealt with how to approach Votto, Francona said. “Hagadone has great stuff,” he added. “We wanted to pound Votto inside and not let him get his arms extended. It’s part of the learning experience but a pitcher also has to pitch

to a comfort zone. If we’d have walked him, it wouldn’t have been the end of the world.” Choo, traded from the Indians to the Reds in the offseason, also hit a leadoff homer in the first. Jason Giambi tied it in the Indians’ eighth with a long pinch-hit homer. The solo shot was estimated at 467 feet and caromed off the batter’s background in center field. His ninth career pinch-hit homer ended his 0-for-24 slump and was third homer of the season and first since April 20. Jonathan Broxton (2-1) got two outs in the eighth. Arodis Chapman pitched the ninth for his 13th save, clinching the Indians’ fourth

(Continued from page 6) Earlier, Graham won the 1,600 in 4:24.88 as teammate Colton Grothaus was second in 4:45.81 and he helped the 3,200 Relay team to a win in 8:40.17. Shafer, Grothaus and Alex Giesige made up the Bulldogs foursome. Derek Rieman was a double qualifier for the Bulldogs winning the 110 hurdles in 15.12 and finishing second in the 300 hurdles in 40.48. Collin Grothaus won the 300 hurdles in 40.32. Collin Grothaus also won the pole vault clearing 13-6 as sophomore teammate Brandon Cotrell was second at 12-6. Trevor Schroeder won the shot put for the Bulldogs with a throw of 49-4, while Dakota Vogt and Schroeder went 1-2 in the discus. Vogt, who announced he will be attending The Ohio State University on a track scholarship, won with a record throw of 178-5 and Schroeder was second at 167-7. Vogt broke his own year-old record in the event. “The meet probably went better in some areas than we thought,” Grove coach Chris Grothaus said. “It’s nice to get some kids out you didn’t expect, like our freshman high jumper Baily Clement (fourth). The seniors did what they are supposed to do. You don’t want to take it for granted but they went out and performed. We just want to keep it going.” Clement was fourth in the high jump clearing 5-10. As a team, the male Bulldogs won the district championship with 136.5 points to outdistance second place Ada with 102 points. The Lady Bulldogs scored 80.5 points to finish second to Van Buren with 110 points. ———Bluffton 4:16.62; 6. Cory-Rawson 4:25.21; 7. McComb 4:26.05; 8.

Popular win eases Kanaan’s worries at trying time
By JENNA FRYER The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — It had been nearly three years since Tony Kanaan’s last victory, a drought so long his young son had no memory of ever seeing his father win a race. It was a sticky subject with young Leo, who just last week reminded Kanaan of the winless stretch during a phone call from Brazil. “I was having a conversation with him about losing the other day — I was trying to teach him you don’t win every time,” Kanaan said Monday. “He said, ‘Yeah, Dad, because as long as I remember, I haven’t seen you win.’ That was harsh.” Harsh but unfortunately true for a driver trapped in a neverending search for sponsorship that had turned the last few years into an overwhelming struggle to ensure he could race. It’s what made his breakthrough victory Sunday in the Indianapolis 500 so sweet, so special. It was a victory for the old guard, one Leo would always remember, and proved good guys sometimes do finish first. More important, it relieved the financial burden KV Racing Technology has faced this season, a year in which Kanaan’s car lost its long-time primary sponsor. Kanaan’s victory earned him $2.3 million during Monday night’s banquet from the $12 million purse. It’s important money for a team that has been piecing together corporate support since right before the season opener when the team announced Hydroxycut had signed on for nine races. It still left five unsponsored and Kanaan revealed Monday that team co-owners Kevin Kalkhoven and last three years. Kanaan would like to continue driving for the team but has grown weary of the fight. “I’m happy where I’m at, I’m confident that with this we can build something solid for the following year,” he added. “We were so sketchy up until this race, we didn’t even know if we were going to do the entire year. Now I’m pretty sure we will. But I would love to work a little bit less on that side.” It seems strange that a driver as popular as Kanaan has such struggles. The crowd clearly adores the long-time IndyCar stalwart, evidenced by the roar when he surged past Ryan Hunter-Reay on the final restart Sunday. The cheering was thunderous moments later when a caution essentially ended the race and Kanaan circled the track under yellow for two final laps. They were still standing and cheering 45 minutes later when he took his victory lap, showering him with chants of “TK! TK! TK” as he passed by in a convertible. “It gave me goose bumps; it was crazy,” Vasser said. The entire day was filled with tears of happiness as losing driver after losing driver saluted Kanaan, who shared an emotional long embrace with Alex Zanardi, the beloved former champion who lost both his legs in a 2001 accident. Zanardi had come from Italy to watch the 500 and had Kanaan rub one of his gold medals from the 2012 London Paralympics for luck before the race. Even Hunter-Reay, who dropped from first to third on the final restart, found solace in losing to Kanaan. “It hurts to come so close to winning and it’s hard to say anything positive, but I guess the only consolation is that Tony finally got what he deserved,” Hunter-Reay said.


Jimmy Vasser went into Indianapolis unsure if they’d finish the season. “The past three years I’ve been working extremely hard, probably even harder than driving the car, to find the sponsorship to keep surviving,” Kanaan said. “I hope this win helps me a little bit more, makes it easier to either find a sponsorship or maybe get back on a team that is well-funded. I’m not saying we’re going to make the same money we used to make, because these are different times. “But I would like to have a little bit less pressure on my side, to just really concentrate on driving.” He’s in the final year of his contract with KV, a team that snapped him up a week before the 2011 season opener when sponsorship materialized. Kanaan was out of a job at the time because his sponsorship at Andretti Autosport had gone away and a plan to drive for a new team started by fellow Brazilian Gil de Ferran fell apart because of a lack of funding. The deal to drive for de Ferran was announced in December 2010 and evaporated two months later. So he’s grateful to KV Racing, which has worked hard to compete on the race track and in the sponsorship game the

(Continued from page 6) “My goal is to win state, especially in the 110s. I know I have to make sure I get off quickly; they often say that the first hurdle sets up the rest of the race, so I will be working hard on that this week for Regionals.” Spencerville’s Anthony Schuh did the same in both of those events: second in the 110s and third in the 300s. “I had beaten Cody in the 110s once this year and I had won some other meets. I think I needed to have this happen today so I could re-focus,” Schuh said. “Maybe I had lost some of that over the last couple of weeks, so I know what I need to do for next week for both events, especially the 110s. I need to get back into that concentration I need to do well.” Spencerville’s Schylar Miller posted a second-place pole vault and a fourth in 100meter hurdles. “I had my PR in the pole vault (10-0) and that was also the girls school record. I jumped well and I’m not yet peaking,” Miller added. “I was already warmed up when I ran the hurdles and had to go back to the pole vault. That got me going a little more.” St. John’s junior Megan Joseph surprised even herself with her third place in the girls 1,600.

Three Ottoville girls also advanced: second-place Taylor Mangas (300 hurdles); third-place Tammy Wannemacher (shot put); and fourth-place Alyssa Delong (long jump). Spencerville had a boatload of other events they qualified for. On the girls side, Abby Freewalt and Katie Merriman went first and fourth in the shot put; Sharp was third in the open 400; Purdy, third in the 800 run; Jenna Kahle, third in the 100 hurdles; and Katie Merriman, fourth in the shot put.

Lincolnview’s Bayley Tow won the 1,600-meter run and Jeff Jacomet third. Evan Williams and Hunter Blankmeyer went 3-4 in the 110 hurdles. The Lady Lancers had senior Kaylee Thatcher end up second in the 100 hurdles and its 4x1 relay of Thatcher, Taylor Miller, Sarah Harris and Haley McAbee fourth.

Sen. McCain makes trip to Syria to visit rebels
Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. John McCain, a proponent of arming Syrian rebels, quietly slipped into Syria for a meeting with anti-government fighters Monday. Spokeswoman Rachael Dean confirms the Arizona Republican made the visit. She declined further comment about the trip. The visit took place amid meetings in Paris involving efforts to secure participation of Syria’s fractured opposition in an international peace conference in Geneva. And in Brussels, the European Union decided late Monday to lift the arms embargo on the Syrian opposition while maintaining all other sanctions against Bashar Assad’s regime after June 1, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said following the meeting. Two years of violence in Syria has killed more than 70,000 people. President Barack Obama has demanded that Assad leave power, while Russia has stood by Syria, its closest ally in the Arab world. McCain has been a fierce critic of Obama administration policy there while stopping

short of backing U.S. ground troops in Syria, but he supports aggressive military steps against the Assad regime. Gen. Salem Idris, chief of the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army, accompanied McCain across the Turkey-Syria border. McCain met with leaders of the Free Syrian Army from across the country, who asked him for increased U.S. support, including heavy weapons, a no-fly zone and airstrikes on Syrian government and Hezbollah forces, according to The Daily Beast, which first reported the senator’s unannounced visit. The White House declined to comment late Monday. A State Department official said the department was aware of McCain crossing into Syrian territory on Monday. Further questions were referred to McCain’s office. Last Tuesday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted to provide weapons to rebels in Syria, as well as military training to vetted rebel groups and sanctions against anyone who sells oil or transfers arms to the Assad regime. McCain is a member of the committee.

Burlesque performer killed, 10 hurt in CA crash
Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A celebrated burlesque performer was killed and her husband critically injured in a crash over the weekend, when a party bus ran head-on into the couple’s car as it was stopped on a highway south of San Francisco, authorities said. Sarah Klein, 36, of San Mateo, who was known for her comedic, racy performances as “Sparkly Devil,” died in the wreck early Sunday. Nine other people were injured. Klein’s husband, 43-yearold Raul Padilla, was driving a red Honda that appeared to have slammed into a center divider on U.S. 101 before coming to rest facing oncoming traffic, California Highway Patrol Officer Art Montiel said. Padilla was wearing a seatbelt, but Klein was not, he said. Klein was renowned in San Francisco’s burlesque scene and beyond for her striking stage presence as well as her community work to commemorate burlesque performers of the 1950s and 1960s in the Burlesque Hall of Fame museum in Las Vegas, said Jim Sweeney, a close friend and producer of the Hubba Hubba Revue troupe for which she danced. Klein started doing burlesque in her hometown of Detroit about 14 years ago, before the dance revival took off, he said. “She began in a period of time when there were very few people performing in the modern burlesque scene,” Sweeney said. “She was a loved and respected leader of our entire community, and we feel her loss greatly.” Sweeney said there would be a tribute to Klein at an annual convention at the Burlesque Hall of Fame on Thursday night, and friends planned a large memorial in the coming weeks. She left her job as culture editor for Detroit’s weekly Metro Times in 2006 to pursue her career in “sunny California.” “I really do love this city with all of my hardened little heart, and I am truly sad to go. It’s an indelible part of who I am, and I will always consider myself a Detroit girl. I really hope Detroit pulls through in the long run — but in my heart I knew long ago that I wouldn’t be sticking around to see it,” Klein wrote in a farewell column. The couple had consumed alcohol before the crash, but toxicology tests must be conducted to determine if Padilla was OK to drive, Montiel said. Padilla was transported to Stanford Hospital. Montiel added that if Padilla is determined to have been under the influence, he could face manslaughter and felony DUI charges. The party bus carrying 18 people hit the Honda after it stopped. Two other cars were involved in the crash, but no injuries were reported in those vehicles.

Americans gather to honor fallen service members
Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — Americans gathered at memorials, museums and monuments and the president laid a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery to honor fallen service members on Memorial Day, as combat in Afghanistan approaches 12 years and the ranks of World War II veterans dwindle. “Let us not forget as we gather here today that our nation is still at war,” President Barack Obama said after laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns. “When they give their lives, they are still being laid to rest in cemeteries in quiet corners across our country, including here in Arlington,” he said. He told the stories of three soldiers who had died. Each had been devoted to their mission and were praised by others for saving lives. Hours later, veterans from conflicts from World War II to Afghanistan and Iraq gathered in Atlanta to dedicate a new veterans’ park. Soldiers, airmen, Marines and seamen looked on as veterans and military family members sprinkled soil, sand and water from battlefields and waterways across the world. Retired Army Lt. Col. Rick Lester called it “a reminder of our country’s timeline of freedom.” A 26-year veteran with multiple tours in Vietnam, Germany and Korea, Lester conceived the ceremony as a way to honor living veterans and those who never made it home. The pilot recalled in detail the numbers of men lost on missions he flew in Vietnam. “All I can think about is how those were some of the greatest guys I ever met and what they would have done for this country once they got back,” he said. The soil and sand ranged from Revolutionary battlefields like Lexington and Concord to Tikrit in Iraq. There was none from the Civil War, Lester said, because “that was a time that our country was divided.” Battlefield remnants were mixed in a helmet Lester’s father wore on D-Day in France in 1944. They were sprinkled in cups that his uncle, a Marine, used in World War II. His father lived. His uncle was killed in action. Susan Jimison poured water collected from the Hudson River, the Atlantic Her brother was a helicopter pilot shot down June 16, 1969, in Vietnam. The 22-year-old was later confirmed dead. Jimison was 14 at the time and recalled how a politically unpopular war affected the way her brother’s death was treated. “Nobody talked about it,” she said. It wasn’t until many years later that she started trying to learn about his military service and those who served alongside him. Now, she’s married to a man, Michael Jimison, who flew with him, and she’s writing a book about their company. It’s important, she said, for Americans to learn the personal stories behind military history and international conflict. “My brother died doing what he loved doing,” she said. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined military leaders and others at the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument in Manhattan. He later encouraged New Yorkers to celebrate the day and the good weather but also “remember the sacrifice that was made so that we could be here.” At the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, about 20 bicyclists clustered around veteran and museum volunteer Tom Blakey. The paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division jumped at Normandy on D-Day — June 6, 1944 — and in May 1945 helped liberate the work camp at Wobbelin in northwest Germany. “Most of us wondered why we were there, killing people and being killed,” he said. “We didn’t do anything to deserve it. When we got to that camp and saw what was there, the lights came on.” The cycling group makes regular weekend training runs, and on Monday started a Memorial Day ride about seven miles away at the national cemetery in Chalmette, where the Battle of New Orleans — the last in the War of 1812 — was fought.

Dear Sara: Do you have a recipe for making shampoo? -- Rita M., email Dear Rita: I don’t have a recipe for storebought shampoo. However, I do have a natural recipe that many of my readers enjoy using as a substitute for store-bought shampoo. Many people have tried “no-poo,” meaning they use baking soda and water (some use a paste) to wash their hair and apple cider vinegar to rinse. One member of my Frugal Village forums, G.G. from New Mexico, shares: “I keep a bottle of baking soda and one of vinegar in the shower (15 ounces water, 1 ounce vinegar in a spray bottle). You wet your hair as usual and “shampoo” with the baking soda, then rinse with the vinegar. My hair is the healthiest it has been in my whole life. You do have to go through a weaning process from the shampoo. Shampoo strips your scalp of oil, leaving it damaged. The scalp then overproduces oil to try and heal it, leaving you with oilier hair, which then becomes stinky. If you are in the habit of shampooing your hair daily, you need to start alternating shampoo days with baking soda days. After a few days, you will notice a difference in the way your scalp reacts. That’s when you add in another baking soda day. Keep the process up until you are shampoo-free. After a while,

you will not SARA NOEL even need the baking soda every day.” You can read more about trying this on my forums at frugalvillage. com/forums/health-beauty/110083-greatbaking-soda-shampoo-experiment.html. Dear Sara: I have a dog that has peed in the same spot several times. The smell is driving me crazy. Ripping up the carpet is not an option. I have shampooed the carpet several times, tried vinegar, water, etc. Do you have any other suggestions for me? -- Sheri, Indiana Dear Sheri: It’s difficult to remove urine smells from carpet if it’s soaked into the padding. Try Kids ‘N’ Pets stain and odor remover. Visit kidsnpetsbrand.com for a product locator, or you can purchase it online at Amazon.com, Walmart.com or Drugstore.com. I have two large dogs, a cat and a rabbit, and while I’ve used vinegar and baking soda and a host of other homemade remedies, I’m quite fond of and prefer the Kids ‘N’ Pets product. It’s not expensive, and it gets the job done. Other products that readers have shared that worked well for them are: Nature’s Miracle, X-O Odor Neutralizer and Zorbx. Keep in mind that you need to find a solution for your pet to prevent indoor accidents. Even if you can’t smell urine anymore, that doesn’t mean your dog won’t pick up on the scent and continue to urinate in the house. Some dogs simply can’t have full run of the house and need close supervision or temporary confinement when you’re unable to be right there (not necessarily crating, but room confinement such as the kitchen). If your dog isn’t spayed or neutered, please consider that. Be sure to have a vet examine your dog, too. Dear Sara: Help. My central air conditioner is smelling up my whole house. What can I do? -- Jenna H., email Dear Jenna: I suggest you allow a professional to take a look at it. The odor could be originating from the coil or condensation tray. It could be from mold, mildew or simply an interior smell (smoke, dead rodent in your ductwork, etc.) blowing through the vents in your house. It might be a clog in the drainage, or even a dirty filter. If you are comfortable checking and cleaning these areas, great (the filter and drainage hose would be pretty simple), but if not, have a professional come and clean your unit and your ductwork for you. Make it a part of your regular home maintenance. (Sara Noel is the owner of Frugal Village (www.frugalvillage.com), a website that offers practical, money-saving strategies for everyday living.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
WEDNESDAY, MAY 29, 2013 Things look good in the romance and friendship departments in coming months, but you could have problems with the management of your resources. Be careful and budget-conscious. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Go out of your way to associate with friends who always stimulate your thinking. An active conversation with such types might stir up several useful ideas. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your thinking will be unusually sharp in a work-related matter. Your colleagues are likely to be impressed by some of your ingenious tactics. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you have a good idea regarding a way to improve a sluggish relationship, put it in action. Anything is worth a try to reinvigorate this valuable connection. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Substantial progress in the workplace can be made through innovative thinking on your part. Don’t be reluctant to take a chance. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you take the time to talk to a casual acquaintance, you’ll discover that you share many interests. This could be the start of a close friendship. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -There is a strong chance that unusual circumstances will lead to a peculiar opportunity. There’s something to gain, but you’ll have to act with all due haste. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You won’t find a better day to get involved in a social activity that has caught your interest. It could prove to be worthwhile and exciting. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The possibilities for making some good purchases look better than usual, especially regarding a large item that can be used by your entire household. Look around a little. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- As it often does, the race will go to the swift today, so it behooves you to be both a self-starter and a go-getter. Take the lead when you’re not pleased with the pace. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- The chances of some financial gain are much better than you may realize. However, you must be able to recognize opportunity and work hard to capitalize on it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Even though it might be a workday for you, if you can take some time off to participate in an activity with friends, try to do so. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Finally, accelerated progress is likely to occur in an endeavor that has been slow to move. You might even be able to make up for lost time.
