Miller, Stockwell named to City Schools ‘Hall of Honor’
Hall of Honor recipient exemplifies the kind of person Delphos Jefferson is proud to have educated and graduated from its school system. As well as being a respected business professional, he is a person who cares about the community he lives in; cares about all of the youth as well as the senior citizens in our community; and he cares about preserving all the rich history our community offers. … Making Delphos a great place to live and raise kids is a passion of his. He is a humble, Christian man and is a great example to youth and adults.” Miller has volunteered at the Delphos Postal Museum, Delphos Institute of Music, Delphos Canal Commission, Delphos Youth Center and the Delphos Senior Citizen Center, where he has served on the board of directors for 10 years at president and was instrumental in finding funding to keep the center open. He is a member of Rotary and works to bring the community the Music in Park series and educates high school seniors about points of interest and the history of Delphos. He has emceed the Delphos Canal Days Queen Pageant for years and is on the Arnold C. Dienstberger Foundation Board of Directors, which annually funnels thousands of dollars to the local schools and other worthy programs in the community. He has volunteered as emcee for the annual Relay for Life Trivia Contest and is an advocate of the Up to the Challenge and Families United campaigns, which work with special needs individuals. He is also an active member of his church, Trinity United Methodist. Most will know Miller’s voice from his play-by-play commentary on Friday and Saturday evening sports broadcasts on WDOH. Miller was unable to attend the banquet. His daughter, Angela (Miller) Eickholt, accepted his award. Stockwell has been an active member of the Jefferson Booster Club, serving as an officer for many years, and was one of the first members to bring the Wildcat Special to reality. It remains the main fundraiser for the boosters today. He helped co-chair the PTO Carnival and was responsible for ordering, picking up and distributing the prizes to each of the games during the carnival. In 2001, he received the OHSAA award from Jefferson Schools for his exemplary contributions and service to the school. See ALUMNI, page 10A

DELPHOS — Delphos Canal Days doesn’t officially kick off until “The Toast to the Town” on Thursday of the festival weekend but the first event takes place the weekend before with the Canal Days Queen Pageant, during which judges select the young woman who will preside over the festivities. Kimberly Ousley, who was once a pageant contestant herself, is now head of the pageant committee. “I helped run it back in 2007 with Gina Wiley. That was my first year,” she said. “This is now year seven. I was in the pageant for three years, placed in two of them. I was also in the Peony Festival as well as Allen County Junior Miss and I actually placed at Miss Cheerleader of Ohio.” Ousley and her other committee members, Brooke Etzkorn and Megan Goedde, are already beginning the planning process. “A lot of it is getting on the same page with the Canal Days Committee as a whole on what the queen’s respon-

sibilities will be during the festival,” she said. “Then we select a theme, trying to coordinate with the theme for the festival. The theme this year is ‘Magic,’ which should be fun. We select the song we’re dancing to and begin recruiting contestants, fund-raising, coordinating community service projects and publicity.” The committee will start meeting with contestants Saturday. Ousley says she hopes the girls can gain a sense of self-worth from their pageant experience.

“For those who maybe don’t have a strong home life or not a very good support system, we hope they learn things to help lead them down the right path,” she said. “We hope they can take away from it poise and self-confidence and maybe the ability to speak publicly; most of all, a respect for their community. We hope they learn how important it is to do things for the community and become involved.” See PAGEANT, page 10A

Police: Toledo gun buyback nets nearly 200 guns
TOLEDO (AP) — Police say a northeast Ohio city’s first gun buyback program in 10 years netted nearly 200 guns. Toledo police Sgt. Joe Heffernan says 185 guns were turned in during the “no-questions asked” program held Saturday at a local church. The (Toledo) Blade reports the program offered $50 vouchers for each handgun turned in, with a maximum of two guns per person. Officers say handguns, shotguns and rifles were turned in to police along with several sawed-off long guns and one assault rifle. Heffernan says the buyback gives citizens a ready means to rid their homes of guns they don’t want or may not know how to use. All guns surrendered are checked through identification stamps to determine if they may have been stolen and then destroyed.

Lincoln Highway 100th anniversary
Information submitted One hundred years ago a new era was dawning across the United States. With the invention of the automobile came a need for better roads to connect communities with one another. How significant is a “road”? Without question, we are a nation of drivers. Our culture, economy and our architecture have long been defined by the “road.” Paul Marriott in his book From Milestones to Mile-Markers, points out “We refer to the ‘Great White Way (New York’s Broadway), we get our Kicks on Route 66,” we refer to living “in the fast lane” even when we are not in an automobile and our politicians in Washington, D.C., don’t understand us with their “inside the beltway” mentality. Our entrepreneurs have developed the “drive-in,” the “drive-thru” and the “drive-up.” Our own Lincoln Highway has been the inspiration for songs, radio shows, books of poetry, documentaries and PBS specials. In the 1920s and 30s, there were five different songs titled, “Lincoln Highway.” The 1939 MGM classic, Babes in Arms featured a song sung by Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland titled “God’s Country” that contained the lyrics “Hi there, neighbor, Going my way, East or West on the Lincoln Highway.” This song became so popular that NBC picked it as the theme song for The Lincoln Highway Radio Show, which premiered in 1940 on 48 stations coast to coast. To most, the Lincoln Highway, or Main Street Across America as it is also called, is simply a road. It is something to travel over, across and along to get to places of great interest or away from other places. To pedestrians, it’s often no more than a surface moving threatening vehicles across their path. So what is it about the Lincoln Highway that makes it so historically important? Most notable is the fact the Lincoln Highway was the first road to connect the Atlantic coast with the Pacific coast – from Times Square in New York City to Lincoln Park in San Francisco. For those who could afford to own an automobile in the late teens and early 20s, it was mostly for prestige or a novelty. The owner really couldn’t drive the car anywhere other than around the neighborhood because there were no roads connecting one city with another. For long-distance travel, people were still relying on horses and trains. Once the Lincoln Highway came into existence, communities not located along the route began to build feeder roads to connect their towns with the main highway. Travel by automobile, while still difficult and treacherous, did become a reality.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Toxic blue-green algae killing fish in a central Ohio park system’s 10-acre pond can hopefully be held in check with the help of wind power, parks officials said. An aluminum windmill powers a pump that feeds air through two submerged “bubblers” in Heron Pond at the Three Creeks Metro Park, according to Columbus Metro Parks officials. The park’s assistant manager, Robin Blair, says the oxygen in the bubbles should help check growth of the harmful algae in the pond this summer, The Columbus Dispatch reported. The algae found in many Ohio lakes and ponds grow thick in warm water. The algae feed on phosphorus from manure, fertilizers and sewage that rains wash into nearby streams. Blue-green algae can create oxygen-depleted areas where fish can’t live and can produce liver and nerve toxins harmful to humans. Three Creeks park officials blame the algae for killing fish in Heron Pond the past two summers. “In 2012, we had two fish kills within a week of each other,” Blair said. “We lost about 1,000 fish over both kills.” Mac Albin, the park’s aquatic ecologist, said the shallow Heron Pond is ideally suited for algae growth. Harmful algae problems were first reported in the 13,000-acre Grand Lake St. Marys, Ohio’s largest inland lake, in 2009. The algae also affect Lake Erie, where a record “bloom” stretched from Toledo to Cleveland in 2011. Electric and solar-powered “aerators” similar to the Three Creeks effort are used at Grand Lake St. Marys in western Ohio. The aerators keep algae from growing in areas where waves and wind don’t circulate the water, said Milt Miller, manager of the Grand Lake St. Marys Restoration Commission. “They are a proven commodity,” Miller said. “We want to get more and more of them.” Blair said the windmillpowered bubblers should aerate up to 5 acres of Heron Pond and she hopes to get approval to buy two more windmills next year. The first windmill installed this spring cost $3,500.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The University of Cincinnati is investing heavily in expanding cancer care, hoping to become the go-to provider for patients in the Cincinnati metropolitan region, UC officials said. The school and its health system have committed $65 million to expanded cancer care, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported. Most of the money has been for recruiting doctors and setting up clinical programs. UC officials explain that the goal is to provide care locally for patients who have been going to centers around the

country for complex treatments. “First-level cancer care is done pretty well in Cincinnati,” said Tom Boat, dean of the College of Medicine. “For different kinds of cancers, such as early ovarian cancer, people in Cincinnati by and large are leaving the city.” Providing treatment options close to home could benefit many patients in the region by saving them travel expenses and time. “It’s just a wonderful blessing to be 20 minutes away,” said Kathleen Zavatsky of the Cincinnati area. “You see the doctor a lot when you have cancer.” UC and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center have said in the past they want to work together to gain designation from the National Cancer Institute, which could open up millions of federal dollars of potential research funding. They say they need to make more investments before formally applying. “The cancer center has to be a priority moving forward,” said Santa Ono, who was named Cincinnati’s president last year.

The Van Wert County Convention and Visitors Bureau is selling Lincoln Highway garden flags for $12. Secondly, this highway was not built with government contracts or even with taxpayers’ money. The Lincoln Highway was the brainchild of Carl Fisher, who made his fortune manufacturing Presto-Lite compressed carbide-gas headlights for early autos and also built the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and established the Indianapolis 500. Fisher was convinced the future of America lay in the automobile and he encouraged other automotive entrepreneurs to invest some of their profits in this project. He also invited the public to pledge money for the construction of the highway. In today’s environment, undertaking such a massive project without government backing is incomprehensible. Thirdly, the Lincoln Highway is the father of our modern highway system. Soon after the building of the Lincoln began, other multi-state roads were being considered, such as the Jefferson Highway, the National Old Trails Road, the Old Spanish Trail and the Yellowstone Trail. As the number of roads grew, and with it a need for better marking of highways, the federal government devised a plan to use numbers in place of names. Thus, the Lincoln Highway became officially known as U.S. Route 30. Today’s massive interstate highway system is also intertwined with the story of the Lincoln

Highway. In 1919, the U.S. Army undertook its first transcontinental motor convoy. The convoy began in Washington, D.C., on July 7 and headed for Gettysburg, Pa. From there, it followed the Lincoln Highway to San Francisco. Bridges cracked and were rebuilt, vehicles became stuck in mud and equipment broke but the convoy was greeted warmly by communities across the country. The convoy reached San Francisco on Sept. 5. One participant in the convoy was a bored young Army officer, Lt. Colonel Dwight David Eisenhower. The convoy was memorable enough for him to include a chapter on the trip, “Through Darkest America With Truck and Tank,” in At Ease: Stories I Tell to Friends (Doubleday and Company, Inc., 1967). “The trip had been difficult, tiring and fun,” he said. That experience plus his observations of the German autobahn network during World War II convinced him to support construction of the Interstate System when he became president. “The old convoy had started me thinking about good, two-lane highways, but Germany had made me see the wisdom of broader ribbons across the land.” His “Grand Plan” for highways, announced in 1954, led to the 1956 legislative breakthrough that created the Highway Trust Fund to accelerate construction of the Interstate System. The Van Wert Area Convention and Visitors Bureau invites everyone to share in this important observance of the 100th birthday of the Lincoln Highway. Between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on June 26, a convoy of historic automobiles will stop at Fountain Park for a picnic lunch prepared by the Van Wert Historical Society. The community is encouraged to come to the park, mingle with the drivers and check out their cars. A cash donation for lunch is considered to help cover expenses. On June 27, a new Lincoln Highway informational kiosk in Fountain Park will be dedicated. On June 28, the evening concert in Fountain Park will feature the Toledo Jazz Orchestra, who will be playing hits of the big band era. Relive those wonderful sounds and songs of the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Tommy Dorsey, Harry James, Woody Herman and Stan Kenton bands. Dance the night away with some of the best ballads and swing tunes ever written. Come to the concert early that evening to inspect the many antique and classic cars that will be on display. The Van Wert County Convention and Visitors Bureau has Lincoln Highway Garden flags for sale. These mini-flags may be purchased at the Bureau’s office at 136 E. Main St. for $12 They also have a few metal flag holders for sale.

AKRON (AP) — Three more pairs of bald eagles have built nests in remote and inaccessible areas in northeast Ohio, according to parks officials and biologists. The new nests are in Summit County, and officials say the latest finds bring the number of bald eagle nests in that county to four, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources estimates at least 190 active eagle nests in the state, but says the number of eaglets in 2013 has not been estimated. The number of active nests is down slightly from 2012 when the state estimated 210 nests in 62 of Ohio’s 88 counties that hatched an estimated 321 eaglets. Ohio had four confirmed eagle nests in 1979. One of the new nests in Summit County was built in the Gorge Metro Park between Akron and Cuyahoga Falls, and another is on park-owned land in Clinton in southern Summit County, said Michael Johnson, chief of natural resources for Metro Parks, Serving Summit County. Johnson said two eaglets appear to be in the Clinton

and in its suburban West Chester Hospital, and plans to expand next year into Florence, Ky. Dr. George Atweh, who joined UC in 2009, said the investments had been overdue for the university. He said the program is only about halfway to a goal of comprehensive disease-based programs that can provide a full range of services Finding new patients for clinical trials will drive growth, Atweh said. “We have tremendous resources to bring to this,” he said. “But it takes time to establish a track record.”

nest, but officials are unsure if the Gorge nest hatched chicks. The other new nest is in Steiner Woods, a 23-acre property the University of Akron owns next to the Bath Nature Preserve, said spokesman and biology professor Greg Smith. Officials do not know how many eaglets might be in the Bath Township nest, he said. A bald eagle nest has existed at Nimisila Reservoir in Green for several years. There have been reports for four years of eagles along the Cuyahoga River north of Akron, but no nests were initially found. Bald eagles are continuing to grow in number and showing a growing ability to coexist with humans that wildlife experts did not think they possessed years ago, Johnson said. But park officials strongly encourage people to stay away from the nests and not scare off the eagles.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Tony Awards will be a real drag this year: The two top musicals battling it out have leading men dressed as women and the night’s biggest celebrity will be Tom Hanks, who reminded everyone of his crossdressing roots by teaming up in “Lucky Guy” with Peter Scolari, his “Bosom Buddies” co-star. The Tonys will be broadcast live Sunday by CBS from the cavernous Radio City Music Hall, a homecoming of sorts after two years in a much smaller theater on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Neil Patrick Harris will be back for his fourth turn as host, overseeing a telecast without a clear favorite show, not a lot of high-wattage stars as nominees and lots of onstage diversity this season. “Kinky Boots” and “Matilda the Musical” are the front-runners for the most coveted award — top musical. Both are inspired by British works and both have actors speaking in English actors, but one’s DNA is clearly American.

Tom Hanks, Peter Scolari reunite for Tonys
Pop singer-songwriter Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein have given “Kinky Boots” — originally a 2005 film about a failing shoe factory that turns to making drag queen boots — a fun score and a touching book that celebrates diversity. It has generated two leading men nods in Billy Porter and Stark Sands. “Matilda the Musical” is all British, a witty, dark musical adaptation of the novel by Roald Dahl that is still running in London. It’s leading woman is actually a man — Bertie Carver, who plays the evil headmistress Miss Trunchbull. Others musicals hoping for recognition include the acrobatic “Bring It On: The Musical” and “A Christmas Story, the Musical,” adapted from the beloved holiday movie. Top musical revivals include an updated “Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella” and a cracking revival of “Pippin” with a circus feel. The best play award is largely a two-way race between Christopher Durang’s comical “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” and Richard

Greenberg’s moving “The Assembled Parties.” The biggest star with a nomination is Broadway newcomer Hanks, who could snap up a Tony for “Lucky Guy,” Nora Ephron’s last work and a best play finalist. He faces tough competition from Nathan Lane, who plays a closeted gay burlesque performer in “The Nance.” Presenters will include some of the A-listers overlooked for nominations as well as Jesse Eisenberg, Jon Cryer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anna Kendrick, Zachary Quinto, Sally Field, Audra McDonald, Alan Cumming, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Megan Hilty, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Mike Tyson, the ex-boxer who showed up with a one-man show this season. The winners will be determined by 868 Tony voters, including members of The Broadway League, American Theatre Wing, Actors’ Equity, the Dramatists Guild, Stage Directors and Choreographers Society as well as critics from the New York Drama Critics Circle.

Names will be published in The Delphos Herald and displayed in The Delphos Herald office. ALL NAMES SUBMITTED WILL BE PUBLISHED IN THE DELPHOS HERALD ON June 20, 2013.

State track winds up for local athletes
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com COLUMBUS — Eleven Tri-County track and field athletes ended up on the podium (top-8 finishing) during Saturday’s State Track and Field Meet at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Leading the way in Division III was the Fort Jennings girls 4x200-meter relay of Emily Grone, Lori Bruskotter, Kaitlin Stechschulte and Macy Schroeder that ended up fifth (1:46.28). “We’ve faced a lot of high expectations this year from coaches, parents and from within. We knew we had the ability; we just had to do it,” Schroeder noted. “The pressure to get here was actually bigger; once we got here, that was off and we could just run. We’re extremely happy to finish fifth with such good competition here,” Stechschulte said. As the lone junior, Grone knows it won’t be the same next year. “I had three great seniors to run with and it was a lot of fun. We won’t be the same without them but I have this memory for the rest of my life,” she added. Later, the Lady Musketeer 4x4 of Stechschulte, Bruskotter, Schroeder and Elaina Maag ran their final race together and finished sixth (4:03.69). Columbus Grove senior Jake Graham works his way around the track during Saturday’s 3,200-meter State finals at Bruskotter noted how she ran through the pain of shin Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. He finished fifth. (Delphos Herald/Charlie Warnimont) splints, especially in the finale. “We had a slow start but you just try to do the best you can. You really can’t do anything about it but gut it out,” she added. Afterward, the reality of the finality of their high school careers sank in. “It’s bittersweet. We had a lot of fun over the last four years and we finished on the podium,” Maag began. “We did some things that were never done in our program before in our four years but it’s over now. We’ll try to keep in touch but as we go our separate ways, it’s going to be tough.” Schroeder is the only one that plans on running at the next level for Indiana Tech. “We’re happy we ended up here in two events and got on the podium. Outside of winning, we are pleased with that,” she added. Spencerville sophomore Kacie Mulholland nabbed fifth in the girls 400-meter dash (57.90). “My personal best was 56.80, so I didn’t match that today. However, it was pretty hot and we hadn’t really had a chance to get used to that,” she began. “As well, the nerves were tough to deal with; you just aren’t used to this many people and this much excitement. Still, I’m happy to place fifth. It gives me some incentive to train harder in this event. I know I can do better because I’ve already done it. We have a lot of younger Elida sophomore Clark Etzler places the baton in the Spencerville sophomore Kacie Mulholland sprints her girls coming back and we should be pretty good in the relays hands of senior Nick Pauff in the boys 4x4 relay.

Columbus Grove senior Jake Graham took fifth in the boys of the 4x1 quartet. 1,600-meter run (9:29.84). “It’s taken us a while to really get this team together. The They worked hard and ran well, too.” “I broke my personal record by 10 seconds and the school Biglow was able to put the disappointment of false-starting coaches spent the first part of the season trying to use different mark by four. I am extremely happy how I ran and finished,” in Friday’s 300-meter semis behind him. people in different combinations to find the right group,” she Graham said. “I was disappointed that I didn’t set the mark last “If you let that bother you, you won’t have a chance in other noted. “About midway through the season, they put us together week at Regionals because I really wanted to but I really wasn’t races. I put that behind me,” he added. “My focus today was on and it just worked. We just kind of knew this was the foursome pushed. Today, I was pushed and that makes me go harder. I nothing but running my race, not worrying about the competi- that worked the best and we’ve clicked ever since. It was a lot respond to tough competition; I knew there were a couple of tion and doing the best I could. I did that, so I’m happy. I hope of fun to get here because no one really thought we could, so guys that were well out there and would be tough to beat but to continue my track career in college but I haven’t made up my that was nice to beat expectations and place.” that’s a challenge as well. The warmer weather we had today mind yet as to where I am going.” Grove senior Derek Rieman was eighth in the boys 300didn’t bother me at all.” Sydney McCluer finished eighth in the girls 100-meter meter hurdles (40.44). That mindset will work well for Graham as he heads to hurdles (15.95) and later anchored the Lady Bulldog 4x1 relay “My PR was 40.01, so I didn’t get that. Still, I ended up Lake Erie College to continue his career in both cross country (Raiya Flores, Julia Wynn and Jessi Smith) to eighth (50.81). eighth, so I’m happy with that,” he said. “I fell in the 110s yesand track. “I didn’t mind running in lane 9.

It feels good to get a out of my mind. I did that. Now I can start getting ready — after podium,” Biglow said. “For me, you have to be at the top of podium finish and just gives me more incentive to work harder, I heal up — for football at Ohio Dominican.” your game and it’s still going to be a battle.

Schrader, Koz repeat from 2012; Horstman becomes first-time Sprints winner at LMP
The Delphos Herald LIMA – The first night of racing for the month of June at Limaland Motorsports Park was filled with drama and genuine emotion. Lima’s Jeff Koz, NASCAR great Ken Schrader and veteran sprint car driver Jared Horstman each posted a memorable win for themselves and the racetrack Friday night. Koz started the evening’s feature races with a dominant showing to win the coveted Steve Brown Memorial for the Budweiser Thunderstocks. A smooth gripping racing surface was all Koz needed to roar to the front at the start and take control of the 18-lap event. Defending track champion Shawn Valenti was the only driver to challenge Koz. He finished in the runner-up position and Tony Anderson was third. “Starting on the outside of the front row, I knew that if I held my line, I’d be good because I definitely had a good car,” said Koz, after posting his second consecutive triumph in the Brown Memorial. “We had a really rough start to the season and blew a motor, so we had an old borrowed car from Tony Anderson. I always love to win these bigger money races for my sponsors and those that support me.” The popular touring K & L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders once again sported a stacked field of contenders. Former winner Butch Schroeder and veteran Jared Horstman led the field to the green at the start for the 25 laps around the 1/4-mile oval. It was those two drivers that stole the show as the only leaders the race would produce. A restart following a caution period on lap number four saw Horstman pull off a classic slide job pass through turn number two and grab the lead from Schroeder. From there, the Cloverdale resident headed for the cushion of the track surface and by the mid-point of the event, he held a full straightaway advantage on Schroeder and the rest of the field. Although Horstman never surrendered the lead for the duration of the race, he felt the pressure of a closing charge from Schroeder. A defining restart with three laps remaining saw Horstman able to extend his margin and roar to the first win of his career at Limaland Motorsports Park. “It’s awesome to finally get the monkey off my back at Limaland,” said Horstman, standing aside his #17 orange colored machine. “I knew I had a great restart, followed Butch into the corner and if I didn’t make a move then, well who knows when it could have been. I was nervous late (in the race) but I knew I had to put the hammer down to keep these guys (Schroeder, Randy Hannagan) behind me.” NASCAR stars Schrader and Kenny Wallace joined the field with the K & N

Beezley/Bowersock: Tommy Beezley (69) and Jerry Bowersock race close during the McDonald’s Dash For Cash at Limaland Motorsports Park. (Delphos Herald/Mike Campbell Photos) Modifieds for their 20-lap feature and both drivers prominently figured into the action. Schrader won the feature last year in his familiar Federated #9, while Wallace arrived at the track in time to compete after qualifying his Nationwide car in an event at Iowa Speedway earlier in the afternoon. Those two drivers, along with defending track champion Todd Sherman, gave the fans one of the most thrilling Modified battles of the season so far. At the start, UNOH graduate Bob Baldwin led the opening four circuits but a restart on lap number five saw Schrader work around him for a lead he never surrendered. By then, Indiana’s Sherman was chasing Schrader and made numerous attempts to get around. At times, they were in a virtual side-by-side battle that had the fans on the edge of their seats. On two occasions, it appeared Sherman had taken the lead position but couldn’t sustain it at the start/finish line for an official lead change. On the final circuit, Sherman made a desperation move to the top of the track and briefly lost control as Schrader rolled under the checkered flag, with Wallace slipping by for the runner-up finish. “I don’t know what it looked like from in the stands,but it was pretty darn exciting from where I was sitting,” said Schrader from the winner’s circle. It was a repeat win for the Missouri native from last year at the track. “That was a lot of fun,” declared Sherman, after his third-place result. “I changed it up a little on the last lap, got underneath Ken, then alongside, but couldn’t finish it.

(Schrader, Wallace) are great ambassadors of the sport and it’s a pleasure to compete with them.” The always-animated Wallace was equally thrilled with his Limaland experience: “I’m proud of my team; the car was awesome. My only choice was to make it three-wide and all of us would wreck. I was watching the show, rubbing the bumpers off. Congratulations to Kenny (Schrader) and (Todd) Sherman is a great race car driver but he messed up over here a little bit is why I got second.” Limaland Motorsports Park returns to action on Friday for the Keysor Memorial with the Budweiser Thunderstocks. Also the Elwer Fence Sprints and the K&N UMP Modifieds will compete. Gates open at 5 p.m. with hot laps beginning at 6:30 p.m. Racing begins promptly at 7:30 p.m. All the latest news and information about America’s premier quarter-mile dirt track can be found at www.limaland.com.

The Herald - 9A

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013 Some wonderful goals can be met in the coming months, as long as you don’t get bogged down by ineffective alliances. Avoid this by, first and foremost, always striving to be your own person. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Watch out for a hotshot salesperson with a dazzling pitch, who will attempt to palm off what is clearly inferior merchandise. Don’t let your guard down for one minute. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Much give-and-take might be required between you and your one-and-only. A lack of consideration on your part would do great harm, with wounded feelings resulting. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If a friend who has been kind to you many times in the past is now in need of your support, don’t disappear. It’s time to step up. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Don’t put needless strain on a good friendship by making too many unreasonable demands. If you’re inconsiderate, you’re likely to break up the relationship for good. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You may operate with great effectiveness in a competitive development, but your accomplishments will mean little if you use tactics that are dishonest or underhanded. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Surprisingly, someone who always endorses your ideas might be diametrically opposed to your way of thinking. Don’t use forcefulness to compel compliance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If this should turn out to be a financially trying day, don’t further aggravate the situation by yielding to extravagant inclinations. Live within your means. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Normally, you strive to be considerate with everyone you encounter. However, for some reason today, you might put your interests above all others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It’s not like you to fail to display proper gratitude to those who do you special favors, yet that might be the case today. Sadly, it could leave a scar. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Owing to an inability to accurately judge another’s character, you could form a relationship with someone who has a questionable reputation. Don’t make any permanent commitments. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- To acquire something you want, you might deliberately step on someone’s toes. You’d be smart to make sure the prize is worth the price. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If you find that companions are not as infatuated with your plans as you are, be prepared to either compromise or go your way alone. Don’t force your desires on others. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12, 2013 The aspects indicate that you are likely to be exposed to an unusually high number of big breaks in the year ahead. Be sure that you’re ready to capitalize on them. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you’re not careful, instead of magnifying your virtues and minimizing your faults, you’re more likely to amplify some of the less attractive aspects of your personality. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Since certain endeavors that usually come easy to you could be fraught with unforeseen complications, you had better allow plenty of time to maneuver and recoup. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Don’t allow serious matters to become boring or oppressive, but don’t dismiss them with a chuckle, either. Find the middle ground. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If your optimism turns out to be unfounded, disappointment will naturally follow. Don’t let others mislead you into believing a toorosy portrayal of things. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Don’t depend too heavily on Lady Luck to fulfill your ambitions. Unless you show her that you’re working hard to achieve your desires, she is likely to direct her efforts elsewhere. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- There is a strong possibility that you will be more prone to focus on the details than on the big picture. Try to keep your perspective. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- You will likely be inclined to tempt the fates in areas where you know the odds are stacked against you. This is foolish -- listen to your common sense. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Usually, you’re a pretty shrewd horse trader, yet today you could knowingly make an agreement that benefits the other party much more than it does you. Tread carefully. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you should happen to make a mistake in your work, don’t try to hide it. If you do, it could lead to unanticipated complications. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Temporarily postpone purchasing a luxury item if it doesn’t fit comfortably within your budget. That article will still be there when your wallet is fat enough to handle it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- For the sake of warding off everyone who could interfere with your work, you might promise to do something that you know to be impossible. Lying would be a bad idea. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Most of your boasts and exaggerations will ring hollow, with no one believing you. You’d be better off telling it like it is.

(Continued from page 1) “We spend a lot of time on community service projects and for us it’s just a way to give back,” she added. “We also hope the community will start to see these girls for the intelligent young women they are because this isn’t just a beauty pageant.” The community service projects planned thus far include assisting with the planting and maintenance of the flowers up and down Main Street and collecting funds to send to tornado victims in Oklahoma. They will also sell tickets for a Tin Caps baseball game and hold a car wash as fundraisers. “We would like to raise enough money to give the queen a $1,000 scholarship,” Ousley said. “The last couple years we’ve been able to get it up to $600 but it’s been $500 since the pageant started, which was back in 1994.” Having been involved with the pageant for seven years beyond her own years as a contestant, it’s obvious Ousley has a passion for the pageant and what it represents. “My favorite part of the pageant itself is the spontaneous question and evening gown portions, but the best part of the whole thing is just the feeling that I’m doing something good for the community,” she said. “We’re not compensated; no one on the Canal Days Committee is. It’s all volunteer. I love seeing how much the committee as a whole works together towards making the festival a success. The greatest reward is getting to know girls who have been in the pageant for two, three years and getting to see them grow. When they tell you what they’ve learned from the program that will help them be successful in the future, that’s the best.” In addition to the queen pageant this year will be the Little Miss and Junior Miss Canal Days pageants, for girls ages 3-5 and 6-8 respectively. A Delphos native, Ousley works at Sarah Jane Assisted Living. She and Etzkorn also head the Miss Paulding County Pageant, which took place Friday. Ousley and her husband Jon live in Paulding with their two children, 8-year-old Dakota and 3-month-old Jameson; and two dogs, J.D. and Elliot.

Gerri (Glaze) Brock (class of 1955 and her son, Tim Brock (class of 1986), were in attendance.

Broadband availability nears 100% across Buckeye state
BY KIRK DOUGAL DHI Correspondent kdougal@timesbulletin.com VAN WERT - A report issued this week shows a statewide program begun in 2008 is continuing its progress towards making broadband available in every part of Ohio. On Wednesday, Connect Ohio reported broadband availability across Ohio has grown to 97.62 percent of all homes. The climb in percentage is a result of the number of homes without access dropping from 64,800 in October of 2012 to 59,200. Most Ohio residents who do not have broadband accessible at their homes live in the southeastern portion of the state. Connect Ohio began in 2008 under Gov. Ted Strickland’s administration as a public/private non-profit organization whose main focus was narrowing the broadband gap across sociological and geographic boundaries. The state was awarded $1.8 million in December of 2009 from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, known as the stimulus package, to study the best way to modernize Ohio’s connectivity. Gov. Strickland said at the time the lack of broadband infrastructure was not only slowing educational opportunities for Ohio residents, it was also making it harder to keep and attract employers. In July of 2009, a report revealed Van Wert County mirrored the rest of the state. Only 72 percent of county residents had a computer in their home and only 47 percent had broadband connectivity. Both of those numbers trailed the state averages which, in turn, lagged behind the rest of the United States. To make matters worse, many rural residents did not even have access to what was defined as high speed Internet. The vast majority of those people lived on the west side of the county outside of the Village of Convoy. By 2011, the number of Ohio homes with a computer had grown to 80 percent with broadband usage at 66 percent, passing the U.S. percentage of 63. (A county-by-county breakdown for Ohio was not available at the time.) Later that same year, Connect Ohio offered training on high speed Internet access at Vantage Career Center through the Every Citizen Online project. This week’s report from Connect Ohio showed the program is working with much of the improvement coming since last year. Ohio home broadband usage is now up to 71 percent and nearly 94 percent of homes have more than one provider available, keeping the cost of access below the national average. Every Van Wert County home has access to high speed Internet connection. But officials say the work

is not yet done. “Over the past six months the concentration of investments has been to upgrade existing networks while expansion remained stagnant,” said Connect Ohio executive director Stu Johnson in a release. “Ohioans can be proud of the continued network upgrade investments in telecommunications, cable, and wireless Internet service providers. Although this data appears to show widespread availability coverage, nearly a third (29%) of Ohio households do not subscribe to broadband or have adopted this technology. Many of our fellow citizens remain on the wrong side of the digital divide and are missing out on opportunities in education, economic development, healthcare, public safety, and overall quality of life. Connect Ohio continues to work towards reaching the goal of broadband access for all Ohioans.”

Digital technology threatens drive-in theaters
CLEVELAND (AP) — The survival of drive-in theaters is being threatened as movie studios abandon film, forcing drive-in owners to switch to expensive digital equipment. No one has a handle on how many of the country’s 357 drive-ins, including the 29 in Ohio, will choose to go digital to survive, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported Sunday. But some drive-in owners are declining to buy the necessary $70,000 projectors and won’t have movies to show once the film supply ends later this year. Ohio’s 29 drive-ins tie the state with New York for the second most outdoor drive-ins in the country, topped only by Pennsylvania with 30, according to the United Drive-in Theater Association. But owners around the country have to decide whether to invest the money in a digital system or go under, said D. Edward Vogel, secretary of the association and owner of Bengies Drive-In in Baltimore. Studios will save about a billion dollars a year by no longer putting movies both on film and digital hard drives, according to Pat Corcoran of the National Association of Theatre Owners. Most indoor theaters made the transition to digital years ago. But many outdoor theaters delayed buying the expensive technology due to the costs of projectors and other improvements including 24-hour air conditioning to keep the units cool. Drive-ins pay also more than three times as much for the digital system as indoor theaters do because the giant screens require larger projectors. Owners of two theaters in Mansfield in northern Ohio already have decided not to make the switch, but the AutO-Rama Drive-In in North Ridgeville near Cleveland installed a digital system for its two screens in April. Co-owner Deb Sherman said they had to take out a loan, but that it was “something we had to do.” Rich Reding, co-owner of the Lynn Drive-In Movie in Strasburg, south of Massillon, said they could afford the new equipment for only one screen, but that it “was time to move up or move out.” While the average admis-

sion at drive-ins is only about $5, many fans consider the outdoor theaters more than just places to see movies at lower prices. “You can relax here, be yourself,” said Natasha Peters, of Mount Gilead, who recently attended the Sunset drive-in in Mansfield with several nieces and nephews. “You don’t have to dress up,” Peters, 39, said. “You don’t have to hire a baby sitter. The kids put on their pajamas and treat it like an adventure.” She was disappointed that the Sunset is one of the driveins that will be closing. Fundraising campaigns have helped some drive-ins around the country survive. In Shelton, Wash., $40,000 was raised to help the Skyline Drive-In switch to the new technology, and the Fairlee Motel & Drive-in Theater in Vermont is running a fundraising campaign.

Students may be able to tune into something different next year. The University’s cable contract is due to expire in June, and it is looking into a new contract. For the past 10 years, Time Warner Cable has provided cable to the campus, including residence halls, athletic events and classrooms. Now, the University has four options for cable providers - Time Warner, Buckeye Cable, Campus Televideo and Institutional Network Communications. “There’s a good mix between cable and dish,” said Andy Grant, director of business operations at the University. “There’s two different industries for the same outcome.”

“Our hope is through the negotiations that we’ll end up with roughly half the channels in high definition.”

Sarah Waters | Residence Life Director

These four companies responded to a request for a proposal the University sent out and have made proposals to the University committee regarding the decision. A request for proposal outlines the requirements of the University. The companies then respond with a proposal to explain how they would provide the service. Included in the request are the

The Delta Lambda Phi National Social Fraternity hosted a “Same Sex Safe Sex” event in the Union this past Friday night. About 30 people attended the event that was part of the fraternity’s “rush” week and was hosted to educate students on safe sex practices primarily for same sex couples. The fraternity is a national chapter for gay, bisexual and progressive men. “Our national service project is ‘Be safe, educate’, which this particular event is a part of,” said the fraternity’s Vice President Kyle Shupe. Shupe took the Psychology course, Human Sexuality, this past year, which Marissa Wagner

Human Sexuality instructor

Oehlhof has taught for the past three years. Her presentations in the class were both informative and interesting, Shupe said. It was for these reasons he thought she would be the best candidate to speak at this event. Oehlhof said she was excited to speak at the event because she is often approached by students to come to such occasions and talk about controversial topics others usually back away from. “Somebody needs to say these things out loud and if other peo-

ple aren’t volunteering, then I will,” Oehlhof said. “I feel like there is a lot of misinformation out there and by not talking about these things we are basically telling these people to get diseases or to have problems because nobody wants to address it.” Oehlhof began her presentation addressing the proper use of contraceptives, primarily on the “Do’s and Don’ts” of condoms. She went on to explain the variety of STD’s that can be spread through unsafe sexual activity and included images to emphasize their severity. Because there are so many stereotypes that are often asso-

PHI DELTA THETA Fraternity members invited guests to watch the Superbowl XLVI at their Fraternity house Sunday. The New York Giants won against New England Patriots.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid forms are due in February, but the benefits lie with students who fill them out early. Students who fill out FAFSA forms have a higher chance at getting the best loans and grants offered, University officials said. “Feb. 15 is the soft deadline and students can fill out forms early,” said Eric Bucks, associate director of Financial Aid. “Students can also complete forms after. We won’t reject forms if past this soft deadline.” Bucks said students begin filling them out at the first of the year

through fall, and then fall through spring with no cutoff. When students complete the FAFSA form, provided through fafsa. ed.gov, they are notified about what they qualify for in terms of grants and loans. The amount of money granted depends on the student’s financial situation. FAFSA offers many different grants and loans including Federal Perkins Loan, Direct Stafford Loan and the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant. You can find more details about these loans and others at studentaid.ed.gov.

‘The Purge’ shocks with $36.4 million opening
AP Entertainment Writer NEW YORK — The suspense thriller “The Purge” topped the weekend box office with a shocking $36.4 million that doubled industry expectations, according to studio estimates Sunday. Audiences starved for a horror option flocked to the microbudget Universal film starring Ethan Hawke. The film’s strong opening performance minted another box-office hit for “Paranormal Activity” producer Jason Blum. Like that horror franchise, “The Purge” was made for relative peanuts — just $3 million — making it an extremely lucrative release for Universal. The studio had expected it to open in the high teens. “Never did we expect it to open at this level,” said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal. “This result could not have been forecasted by anybody.” There has been a dearth of horror films at the multiplex in recent weeks, which Rocco acknowledged was a major factor for “The Purge.” Written and directed by James DeMonaco, “The Purge” is set in a utopic United States in the year 2022, where crime has been eradicated except for one violently cathartic day a year when nearly all mayhem is legal. The film opened strong with late night screenings Thursday night that alone took in $3.4 million. “This is exactly the kind of film that stumps all the analysts,” said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. “It proves that R-rated horror films, no matter the budget, always have a place with audiences.” Universal also claimed the second spot at the box office, as the Vin Diesel action flick “Fast & Furious 6” earned $19.8 million in its third week of release. The sixth installment of the street racing series has now earned a total of $202.3 million domestically and $381.7 million internationally. The Google-promoting comedy “The Internship” opened with $18.1 million, a decent debut for the Fox comedy that reteams “Wedding Crashers” stars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. But that was good enough only for fourth place behind two hold-overs: “Fast & Furious 6” and Lionsgate’s “Now You See Me.” The illusionist heist film held strong, earning $19.5 million over the weekend, bringing its cumulative haul to $61.4 million. After Will Smith’s sci-fi adventure “After Earth” bombed in its domestic opening last weekend, coming in third with $27.5 million for Sony, the film found a warmer reception overseas this weekend. It took in $45.5 million internationally after opening in some 60 overseas markets. Domestically, it continued to fare poorly, adding $11.2 million in its second week. Even with the unexpected success of “The Purge,” the box office was still down from last year, when “Madagascar 3” and “Prometheus” both opened. But Superman comes to the rescue next weekend with the debut of Zac Snyder’s highly anticipated “Man of Steel” for Warner Bros. Dergarabedian expects the film to open above $100 million. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released on Monday. 1. “The Purge,” $36.4 million.

Want more time off? Some employers let you buy it
Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Want more time off work to hang out at the beach? Need a little cash and have vacation days to spare? Some companies allow their workers to buy and sell vacation time, a perk that gives workers more flexibility in managing their time off. The novel approach might help employees buy some extra days off to take the trip of a lifetime or spend more time with a newborn. Co-workers could sell off unused days to get some extra money. “When times are a little tight, this benefit really doesn’t cost a lot of extra money to employers to provide,” said Julie Stich, research director for the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans. “It’s offered by more forward thinking or flexibletype employers.” A soon-to-be released survey by the Society for Human Resource Management found that 9 percent of employers allowed workers to cash out unused vacation time. Five percent let employees purchase additional vacation days through a payroll deduction. An additional 7 percent allowed employees to donate vacation time to a general pool that can be used by other workers. The approach is even more popular with employers that have “paid time off” or PTO plans that combine vacation time, sick leave and personal days into one comprehensive plan. About 52 percent of employers reported offering such plans. Of those, 19 percent offered a cash-out option and 15 percent offered a donation program. One percent give their workers unlimited time off. The cost is usually one week’s salary, prorated over the course of the year. Employees often have to decide whether to participate during an annual fall enrollment process and it becomes part of their benefits for the upcoming year. Nora Kouba, who manages company cars at construction materials giant USG Corp. in Chicago, said she used to buy an extra week off to care for her kids or take long summer vacations with the family. But these days, she tends to sell her excess vacation time. “I loved having the extra week when I needed it, and now I like having the extra money,” Kouba said. USG allows all 9,000 of its employees worldwide to buy or sell up to a week of vacation time each year. A little more than half of the company’s employees typically buy an extra week off, while just 5 percent sell a week, USG spokesman Robert Williams said. “People really value their time and appreciate the benefit,” Williams said. The company used to allow employees to buy up to two weeks of extra vacation a year. But Williams said it was too popular and was cut back to just one week to avoid scheduling problems in USG’s production facilities. A flexible vacation policy has been in place about for about 15 years at Kimberly Clark Corp., based in Irving, Tex. The company allows employees to purchase up to five extra vacation days each year during a fall enrollment period, said spokesman Bob Brand. “It’s very popular,” Brand said. “It provides a great deal of flexibility for someone that may have a big trip planned or an event that’s going to take an extended amount of time.” The company does not allow employees to sell vacation days, but they can carry a limited number of unused days over into the following years. Brand said the program is open to about half of the company’s 15,000 U.S. employees, so as not to interfere with production. About 2,000 workers used it last year. In most plans, the employees aren’t actually buying and selling time from each other, Stich said. Time sold back to the company goes into a pool and in certain cases, other employees can buy it. New employees who get limited vacation time during their first few years at a company are among those who appreciate the benefit most, she said.

Sandi Winant, a 24-year employee at financial services company USAA in Colorado Springs, said she buys a week of extra vacation time every year to work on a side business selling salsas and dips at festivals and events around country. She plans to pursue the business when she retires in a year or two. “It’s spread out over a whole year’s paycheck so you don’t even notice it,” she said. “This gives me that extra padding to do what I want.” Jeff Weiss, senior vice president of benefits at San Antonio-based USAA, said about 41 percent of the company’s 25,000 employees bought vacation time last year, while 11 percent sold it. “We think time off is actually critical to productivity,” Weiss said. “When people take their time off to refresh and renew, we believe they service the members more effectively.”
