WASHINGTON—Framinganew

House Speaker John Boehner,

At a Capitol Hill news conference,
Boehner vowed to hold another vote

to“correctthisinjustice.”
“If businesses can get relief from

ThecriticismfromtopRepublicans,
Carney said, is “pretty rich coming

again not to reach the top, rather than
focus on the work that the American

Asked whether public confidence
in the law could be eroded by delays
and by the change in the smoking

Nonetheless,Republicanshopetheir

Today is Wednesday, July 10, the
191st day of 2013. There are 174 days
left in the year.
Today’s Highlight in History:
On July 10, 1913, the highest record-
ed shade temperature was measured
in Death Valley, Calif., at 134 degrees
Fahrenheit (56.7 degrees Celsius).
(Previously, the highest recorded shade
temperature in the world, 136.4 degrees
Fahrenheit, 58 Celsius, was said to
have occurred in 1922 in present-day
Libya, but the accuracy of that read-
ing was disputed in 2012 by the World
Meteorological Organization.)
On this date:
In 1509, theologian John Calvin, a
key figure of the Protestant Reformation,
was born in Noyon, Picardy, France.
In 1890, Wyoming became the 44th
state.
In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson
personally delivered the Treaty of
Versailles to the Senate, and urged
its ratification. (However, the Senate
rejected it.)
In 1940, during World War II, the
Battle of Britain began as Nazi forces
began attacking southern England by
air. (The Royal Air Force was ultimately
victorious.)
In 1951, armistice talks aimed at end-
ing the Korean War began at Kaesong.
In 1962, AT&T’s Telstar 1 commu-
nications satellite, capable of relaying
television signals and telephone calls,
was launched by NASA from Cape
Canaveral.
In 1978, ABC-TV launched its refor-
matted evening newscast, “World News
Tonight,” with anchors Frank Reynolds,
Peter Jennings and Max Robinson.
In 1985, the Greenpeace protest ship
Rainbow Warrior was sunk with explo-
sives in Auckland, New Zealand by
French intelligence agents; one activist
was killed. Bowing to pressure from
irate customers, the Coca-Cola Co. said
it would resume selling old-formula
Coke, while continuing to sell New
Coke.
Ten years ago: During a visit to
Botswana, President George W. Bush
pledged to the nation with what was
then the world’s highest AIDS infection
rate that it would have a strong partner
in his administration in fighting the dis-
ease. Spain opened its first mosque in
500 years. Astronomers announced they
had found the oldest and most distant
planet yet, a huge, gaseous sphere 13
billion years old and 5,600 light years
away. Lord Shawcross, Britain’s chief
prosecutor at the Nazi war crimes tri-
als in Nuremberg, died in Cowbeech,
England, at age 101.
Five years ago: President George
W. Bush signed a bill overhauling rules
about government eavesdropping and
granting immunity to telecommunica-
tions companies that helped the U.S.
spy on Americans in suspected terrorism
cases. The Senate handily confirmed
Gen. David Petraeus as the top com-
mander in the Middle East.
One year ago: Clashing over the
economy, President Barack Obama chal-
lenged Mitt Romney to join him in
allowing tax hikes for rich Americans
like them; Romney dismissed the idea
and redirected charges that he had sent
jobs overseas when he worked in private
equity, calling Obama the real “outsourc-
er-in-chief.” An Israeli court cleared for-
mer Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of the
central charges in a multi-case corruption
trial that forced him from power, but con-
victed him of a lesser charge of breach
of trust, for which Olmert received a
suspended one-year jail sentence. The
National League romped to an 8-0 vic-
tory over the American League in the
All-Star game.

COURT NEWS
Expert says evidence jibes with Zimmerman’s story
MIKE SCHNEIDER
Associated Press
SANFORD, Fla. — The tra-
jectory of the bullet and gunpow-
der on Trayvon Martin’s body
support George Zimmerman’s
account that the teen was on
top of him when the defendant
shot and killed Martin, an expert
on gunshot wounds testified
Tuesday.
Forensic pathologist Dr.
Vincent DiMaio also used pho-
tographs of Zimmerman to point
out where he appeared to have
been struck during testimony that
took up a significant portion of
the day’s hearing. Defense attor-
neys, who said they may wrap
up their case today, were hoping
DiMaio’s testimony would help
convince jurors of Zimmerman’s
claims that he shot Martin in self-
defense.
DiMaio, who was hired by
the defense, said the muzzle of
Zimmerman’s gun was against
Martin’s clothing and it was any-
where from two to four inches
from Martin’s skin.
“This is consistent with Mr.
Zimmerman’s account that Mr.
Martin was over him, lean-
ing forward at the time he was
shot,” said DiMaio, the former
chief medical examiner in San
Antonio.
DiMaio testified that lacera-
tions to the back of Zimmerman’s
head were consistent with it strik-
ing a concrete sidewalk. Later,
when looking at photos of
Zimmerman’s injuries taken the
night of the shooting, DiMaio
identified six separate impacts to
Zimmerman’s face and head. He
said he believed Zimmerman’s
nose had been broken.
“It’s obvious he’s been
punched in the nose and hit in the
head,” he said.
Under cross-examination,
DiMaio conceded that the gun-
shot could also be consistent
with Martin pulling away from
Zimmerman, and that he reached
his conclusion without factoring
in statements from some neigh-
bors who say Zimmerman was
on top of Martin. DiMaio, who
has testified at high-profile tri-
als including that of record pro-
ducer Phil Spector, said witness
accounts are often unreliable.
The pathologist said he had been
paid $2,400 by the defense.
DiMaio’s testimony also
addressed the difference between
Zimmerman’s account that he
had placed Martin’s arms out to
his sides and a photo taken after
the shooting that shows Martin’s
arms under his body. The
pathologist said Martin would
have been conscious for 10 to 15
seconds after the shooting as a
reserve supply of oxygen ran out
of his body, and during that time
he could have moved his arms.
After DiMaio testified, the
911 calls that captured sounds
of the fatal encounter were dis-
cussed again. Defense attorneys
called Sanford City Manager
Norton Bonaparte to the witness
stand to describe the circum-
stances of how Martin’s fam-
ily came to hear the 911 tapes.
Bonaparte said he played the 911
tapes while members of Martin’s
family sat together at City Hall.
He played them as a courtesy
before they were released pub-
licly.
Defense attorneys are try-
ing to show that Martin’s family
members may have influenced
each other in concluding the
screams are those of the Miami
teen. Police officers testified for
the defense that it’s better for
someone who is trying to identify
a voice to listen to it alone.

Hot Air Festival
plans new event
BY LINDSAY MCCOY
DHI Correspondent
news@delphosherald.com
VAN WERT - The 2013 Van Wert Hot Air Festival will be
a full three-day event this year beginning at 3 p.m. on Sept. 6
and concluding Sept. 8. Saturday and Sunday will include a
brand new event that will include a handful of balloons taking
flight before sunrise.
“Anyone who has ever seen a hot balloon event will be
thrilled by this year’s festival,” said Event Coordinator Jerry
Mazur. “The festival will feature a new event never before
seen in Van Wert — the Dawn Patrol — which will be fol-
lowed by a large breakfast.”
A total of 17 balloons will be taking flight in two separate
launches each day with five balloons taking off before dawn.
Friday’s launches are impromptu and will be determined by
balloon pilots and safety crews. Mazur was very thankful for
all the area businesses that have come together to sponsor this
event to make it possible for a second year.
Just like last year, charity tethered balloon rides will
be available for free for those locally who are challenged.
Elderly in the nursing home hoping to cross off a bucket list
item will also be invited to partake in this special event. Last
year brought 150 people to claim their free ride; this year
more than 200 people are expected to make the flight. Meals
will be included following these rides.
The 2013 festival is also pairing with McDonald’s for a
special promotion. A coloring contest will be held at every
Jerry Lewis McDonald’s location within 10 counties. A free
order of fries will be rewarded to those who enter the contest
and winners will receive free tethered balloon rides.
This festival goes beyond balloon rides and is expected to
include a variety of other events, many of which are free of
cost. Children can enjoy trackless train rides, a petting zoo,
amusement rides, pony rides and miniature golf. Other events
include a corn hole tournament, flea market and craft sales,
helicopter rides, dance recitals and musical entertainment.
The Brew Ha-Ha beer garden will offer adult refresh-
ments but will also be family-oriented. This are will also offer
big screen TVs to keep up-to-date on daily athletics. Many
food vendors will also be present.

PUTNAM COUNTY —
Consumers in our region con-
tinue to report they are receiv-
ing telephone calls claiming
that someone is giving them
a medical alert device similar
to “Life Alert” and it will
be delivered to them free of
charge. This device is not
associated with any of the
established medical alert sys-
tems.
It is a nationwide promo-
tion and other BBB’s across
the country are receiving
similar reports from consum-
ers. The calls originate from
at least four different states.
When the caller is asked what
company is represented, there
is no response nor will they
say who purchased the device
for them.
They do provide a tele-
phone number but, in most
cases, when you try to call the
number there is no response
or you receive a message say-
ing the number has been dis-
connected. It appears they are
using temporary cell phones
to make the calls because sev-
eral different numbers have
been provided.
The purpose seems to be
to convince seniors to accept
the gift and then provide sen-
sitive personal and financial
information. After agreeing to
accept the “gift” the victim is
then billed on a monthly basis
for the service.
The BBB has no solid
information at this time on
whether the device works as
advertised.
No one should agree to this
because of the very nature of
the call. Residents should not
give out sensitive financial
and personal information to
an unknown caller.
This kind of call, and oth-
ers like it, are always sus-
pect because of their secretive
nature and lack of full disclo-
sure as to a real purpose.

Lima Family YMCA
offers swimming lessons
The Li ma Fami l y
YMCA is offering swim-
ming lessons beginning
Monday.
A five-week session
begins Monday and a
three-week ses-
sion begins July 29
Classes offered for chil-
dren 6 months to 3 years,
3 years to 6 years, ages 6
and up, and adults.
The YMCA is dedicated
to teaching children to be
safe in, on and around
water. According to a report
from Consumer Product
Safety Commission, dur-
ing the 2012 summer sea-
son, the state of Ohio had
the third-most drownings
amongst children 15 and
under. Children from non-
swimming households are
eight times more likely
to be at risk of drowning
and the rate of drown-
ing amongst African
Americans is significantly
higher than that of whites.
A contributing factor
to drowning is the lack
of swimming ability. The
YMCA encourages all
children in the area to try
and take swimming les-
sons to learn a skill they
will use their life.

tunities, contact Jennifer

Family taking a breather while
Joe, daughter Elizabeth on vacation
BY LOVINA EICHER
It is July 3 and 2013 is half
over already. We have been
having lots of rain. Last week
we had a total of eight inches.
Some report more, some less.
All is still quiet around
the house this morning so I
decided to get up earlier than
the rest to write
this column. With
this being vaca-
tion week for my
husband Joe and
daughter Elizabeth,
we have been
sleeping in longer.
Bedtime is also
later with not hav-
ing to set an alarm.
Such nice family
time together and
memories made.
Sunday evening we took
supper to Jacob and Emma’s
house. We then went to see
how their daughter Elizabeth
is faring since her surgery
on Thursday. She is doing as
well as can be expected. The
men and boys played croquet
while the rest of us visited.
The eight-player croquet set
was a Father’s Day gift to Joe
and has been played many
times since.
Corn de-tasseling should
be starting any day. Daughters
Susan and Verena went to help
rogue the corn on Saturday.
If I understand correctly “to
rogue” the corn is to take out
the tall unwanted cornstalks
out of the cornfields. This is
done before the corn is de-
tasseled. The fields were over
a mile long and each person
takes 12 rows at a time. After
all this rain it made for some
tough walking. Their shoes
were caked with mud when
they came home.
On Friday, we enjoyed a
fish fry at Timothy’s house.
Timothy and Elizabeth
cooked supper outdoors. Was
very enjoyable to relax and
not have to cook.
Elizabeth and Loretta went
to clean Timothy’s house on
Saturday. I told Elizabeth to
bring his laun-
dry here to wash
on Monday. She
bought his cur-
tains, extra bed-
ding, etc to wash
as well. Using
our spinner, our
laundry and his
dried really fast
on the lines. With
Timothy work-
ing long hours it’s
hard for him to keep up with
the housework all the time.
Last week, we made quite
a few batches of strawberry
freezer jam. My rhubarbs are
looking very nice since the
rains so want to makes one
more batch of juice
We are enjoying red pota-
toes, peas, green peppers and
hot peppers from the garden.
Have small zucchinis almost
ready to pick. Red beets are
ready to use but am leav-
ing them get bigger to pack
pickled beets. Tomato plants
are loaded with tomatoes and
corn is looking nice again.
Our sweet onions are getting
very big and doing extra well.
The cooking onions I store
over the winter are doing
great as well. Meal planning
is so much easier with the
garden goodies. Joe planted
another patch of sweet corn
yesterday for later use.
Son Kevin, 7, does not
get along with our rooster.
He usually gathers the eggs
and has had a few surprises
from behind from that roost-
er. We also have a hen with a
bad attitude. Daughter Susan
came out to the barn and
heard this hen really squawk-
ing. She could not keep from
laughing when she saw Kevin
and the hen face to face and
the hen’s feathers were all
raised. Kevin had an egg
aimed to throw at the hen for
his protection.
Kevin keeps us all laugh-
ing. He wanted to help me
mix Loretta’ birthday cake
but after cracking the first egg
too hard it fell on the counter-
top. He did manage to get the
others in the bowl. We made
the cake while Loretta was
outside sitting on the swing.
We hide it until supper time
so Loretta could be surprised.
God’s blessings.

COLUMBUS – The Ohio High School Athletic Association will
hand out total of $66,000 in college scholarships to 54 recent high
school student-athlete graduates following final selections made
recently by the OHSAA’s six District Athletic Boards. The OHSAA
has conducted its annual college scholarship program for the last 21
years.
Of the 54 honorees, 42 will receive $1,000 awards, including
six (one from each district) who will receive an OHSAA Minority
Scholarship presented by Farmers Insurance. In addition, two students
from each district will receive $2,000 awards made possible by the
OHSAA Foundation. Nike and Molten have also contributed to the
OHSAA scholarship program, as well as schools that participate in an
OHSAA Foundation basketball game, which includes a fee given to
the Foundation to fund their portion of the scholarships.
“These 54 youngsters had outstanding high school athletic careers
and they also were exemplary students in the classroom,” said
OHSAA Commissioner Dr. Dan Ross. “They truly represent what it
means to be a student-athlete and families and schools are to be com-
mended for helping them achieve great things already. I would also
like to personally thank the OHSAA Foundation and our corporate
partners for their generous support in helping make these scholarships
possible.”
More About the Scholar-Athlete Selection Process
Scholar-athlete recipients are selected based on a point system
which rewards students for grade point averages; class rank; ACT or
SAT scores; varsity letters earned; and individual and team athletic
honors. There are seven, 10 or 13 recipients from each district, depend-
ing upon the number of schools within the district. The recipients were
selected by special committees within each of the six OHSAA athletic
districts. Individuals who receive athletic scholarships from NCAA
Division I or II institutions or appointees to military academies are not
eligible for the award.

Boards selected recipients
Faldo to take one last walk at Muirfield
Associated Press
The toughest question for any world-class golfer is to
pick his favorite course in the world. It turned out to be
easy for Nick Faldo once he set some parameters.
The 6-time major champion was filming a promo-
tional spot for Glenmorangie earlier this year when he
was asked to name his favorite course and why. Faldo
found himself wanting a little bit of everything, from the
towering pines of Augusta National to the links courses
of the British Open to the coastline of Pebble Beach.
As he tried to figure out how to mix all that together,
another element entered the equation — memories.
Muirfield.
“Unsolicited, it clicked,” Faldo explained in a recent
interview. “Memorability is important, isn’t it? And then
I suddenly I thought, ‘Muirfield.’ That green, the 18th
hole, I won two Opens, which is pretty darn cool. That
probably woke me up and I thought, ‘This is really an
important place to me’.”
It means enough that Faldo will play in the British
Open next week for the 35th time. The opening round is
on the day he turns 56.
He last competed at St. Andrews in 2010, missing the
cut with an 81 when he was caught in the worst of the
wind. He did not enter another tournament as a tuneup
leading up to Muirfield. He is relying on memories; as
good as they are, they won’t be enough for him to play
like he once did.
No matter.
“It will be the last walk at Muirfield,” Faldo said. “If
I could just get in the right frame of mind, if I hit the golf
ball solid, that’s as good as it gets. If it goes sideways, if
I can’t put a score on the card, you’re going to have to
accept that.”
Faldo rarely hit it sideways, certainly not at Muirfield.
It was in 1987 when Faldo famously made 18 pars in
a gloomy final round and captured the first of his three
Open titles when Paul Azinger faltered. Five years later,
Faldo was a machine until he made a mess of the final
round, losing a 4-shot lead in five holes and then recover-
ing with four of the best holes he ever played to beat John
Cook, who helped by botching the last two holes.
Muirfield has the greatest collection of champions of
any major course in the world. Faldo and James Braid are
the only players to win the Open there twice.
The memories are strong. Faldo doesn’t always
remember where his shots landed, only how they felt
leaving his club, particularly his win in ‘92. The 5-iron on
the 15th hole is one of the best shots he ever hit. Facing
a left-to-right wind, he had to work the ball in the same
direction and stay left of the flag to let a ridge do the
work. He fed the shot into 3 feet for birdie.
“And then the driver and 4-iron on the 17th was as
good as it gets,” he said. “They had a red telephone box
on the corner of the grandstand. I aimed at that and hit a
draw and then a perfect 4-iron 20 feet left of the flag.”
His two wins at Muirfield could not have been any
more different.
Faldo can relate to Tiger Woods in one aspect —
criticism and scrutiny of the swing, especially when
the swing is going through a major overhaul. Faldo had
already played on four Ryder Cup teams and won the
Order of Merit when he rebuilt his swing under David
Leadbetter and went three years without a win.
The press panned him. He recalls seeing other play-
ers mimic what he was trying to do with his swing. The
worst of it was in the spring of 1987, when he arrived in
the Atlanta airport and saw so many players headed east
to Augusta National for the Masters. Faldo didn’t qualify.
He was going in the other direction, to Hattiesburg, Miss.
Starting with the ‘87 Open at Muirfield, Faldo won
four out of the next 13 majors, lost a U.S. Open play-
off to Curtis Strange and had three other top 4s in the
majors.
But for someone regarded as one of England’s great-
est golfers, Faldo had a prickly relationship with the
press. It started during the rebuilding years and didn’t
improve even after he had won two Masters and two
Opens at Muirfield and St. Andrews. Faldo was aloof,
which didn’t help, and he was sensitive when it came to
his swing. It was a bad combination.
That led to his infamous victory speech at Muirfield
in 1992, when he was a rambling mess with his emo-
tions and his words after a wild final round where he
nearly blew a lead that Faldo now says would have
scarred him. His voice was unsteady and he constantly
fidgeted with his hair. Toward the end, he sarcastically
thanked the TV commentators for telling him “how to
practice and what to do and what not to do.”
The relationship he has with Muirfield is grounded
only in respect and appreciation, sprinkled with the
memories of two claret jugs.
THE FINAL STRETCH: In the first year of the
FedEx Cup, there was so much promotion that Vijay
Singh said he was tired of talking about it even before
the season started. His sound advice was to worry about
that when it mattered later in the year, much like the
Presidents Cup or Ryder Cup standings.
It’s getting to be that time.
There are only six tournaments remaining to get into
the top 125 and take part in the $35 million bonanza
known as the FedEx Cup playoffs. Singh won the
FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus in 2008. Now, he
is on a short list of players who have never missed the
playoffs and currently are outside the top 125. Singh is
at No. 136.
Others outside the top 125 who have never missed
the playoffs since they began in 2007 include Sean
O’Hair, Jonathan Byrd and Robert Allenby.
This would be a bad year to miss out. After the
playoffs, there is no longer a Fall Series for players to
make up ground. The top 125 earn cards for the fol-
lowing season, while the next 75 players (if not already
exempt) would go to a 4-tournament series with top
Web.com Tour players who play for a card.
That’s because the next season starts in October.

Chase Elliott impressing on NASCAR national level
Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Neither father nor son can remem-
ber a time when Chase Elliott wanted to be anything other than
a race car driver.
The little boy spent his early years at the race track watching
“Awesome Bill” win races deep into his 40s. One of Chase’s
earliest memories was the 2002 victory at Indianapolis Motor
Speedway.
His uncles worked on cars and engines and so much time
was spent in the Dawsonville, Ga., shop, that Chase never
dreamed of doing anything but following in the footsteps of
the 1988 NASCAR champion and 16-time most popular driver.
“I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to do anything else,” Chase
said. “Who doesn’t want to be like their Dad?”
He certainly wasn’t destined to be a student, crying himself
sick every morning as he tried to get out of going to school.
“I didn’t think we’d ever get him through third grade. He
hated it so bad,” Bill Elliott recalled.
But it’s funny how life changes, when commitment and
desire become so overwhelming that attitudes adjust and tasks
become more bearable. Chase wanted to race but his parents
insisted life wouldn’t be all fun and games at the track.
“What we tell him is ‘Right now, school is the most impor-
tant part. The racing can go away in a heartbeat’,” Bill Elliott
recalled. “Anything can take it away. So it’s always been ‘Get
your education.’ Chase is in a good school and he’s done a very
good job of keeping his grades. He needs just a little prod now
and then but we work closely with the principals and teachers
for them to understand what he needs to do. He’s been very
good about it.”
So good that the 17-year-old is spending the summer before
his senior year getting a taste of racing at NASCAR’s national
level. A tweak to the age requirements this year opened the
gate for drivers as young as 16 to compete in the Truck Series
on ovals a mile or shorter in length and on road courses. The
previous age limit was 18.
It’s allowed Chase to put together a partial Truck Series sched-
ule this year in a joint effort between Hendrick Motorsports,
where Chase is the first developmental driver the organization
has had in six years, and Turner Scott Motorsports.
He heads to Iowa Speedway this weekend for his fourth
Truck Series race of the year and a legitimate shot at picking
up his first victory. In his previous three races, Elliott finished
sixth, fifth and fourth.
And in ARCA, which this year allowed 17-year-olds to
drive at both Pocono Raceway and Kentucky Speedway after
passing an approval test, Chase won his series debut at Pocono
last month. He followed it with a fourth-place finish at Road
America.
“He just surprises me every time I watch him,” said Rick
Hendrick. “The maturity he shows — most young guys with
an opportunity, they wreck a bunch of stuff trying to figure out
how to impress people. They are fast and have talent but they
don’t know how to race.
“Chase has really impressed me with how smooth he is. He
doesn’t get rattled. At Dover, he got a speeding penalty and
didn’t get rattled. He went back out there and drove it back to
the front and finished fourth. And I’ve really been impressed
with how buttoned up he’s been, how polished he is and how
respectful he is of the team and the equipment.”
Hendrick credits Bill and Cindy Elliott with raising their
son correctly and Bill’s coaching helps Chase understand the
importance of preserving his equipment.
In typical Bill Elliott style, he downplays his role.
“He’s a teenager. You can’t tell him anything — he listens to
a little bit, maybe with half an ear,” said Elliott, before softening
his stance. “For the most part, he gets it. He’s got a pretty good
head on his shoulders. This is all up to him. If he wants to race,
that’s fine. If he don’t, that’s fine, too. But he’s got to go on and
make it for himself.”
Getting to this point has come from hard work and the les-
sons Chase has learned alongside his father and small crew in
their Georgia shop. He understands the hours of labor it requires
to get him to the track; in having grown up inside the sport,
Chase has had his fair share of role models.
He considers himself a fan of Jimmie Johnson and Tony
Stewart and has paid attention to the way media-savvy Carl
Edwards carries himself.
Elliott said his son is something of a NASCAR junkie and
watches every minute of television coverage possible, from the
pre-race show all the way through Victory Lane celebrations.
He sees his son emulating 5-time NASCAR champion Johnson
in how he presents himself.
Chase sits and watches the calendar, waiting for his Nov.
28 birthday, when he’ll be clear to race anything he wants.
The plan is to continue juggling his final year at Kings Ridge
Christian School in Atlanta, where educators are already work-
ing with the family to front-load his schedule so he’ll have an
easier time pursuing a full-time ride in 2014.
Chase is anxious to turn 18 and although he’s grateful for the
opportunity to run on the small tracks in trucks, he can’t help
but wonder why NASCAR can’t consider drivers on a case-by-
case basis for other events.
As his dad watches from the sidelines, he thinks his kid has
got a shot at doing big things in NASCAR.
“Even if I try to look at it as objectively as I possibly can,
for all the stuff he’s run, and now, aligning everything right and
getting him with Rick and getting the right crew chief around
him, he does real well for himself,” Bill added. “He’s still got
a lot to learn. But on the flipside of that, at this point, he’s got
a hell of a resume.
“If you look at pure racing resume and what he’s accom-
plished and even if he does nothing else the rest of his career,
he’s got one hell of a resume.”

DEAR BRUCE: My last son
is in college, and his finances
are destroying our relationship.
He seems to think that I should
finance his college while he plays
and does what he wants. I told
him to seek his own financing,
and he came back, as I was sure
he would, needing a co-signer. I
am not willing to do that, as I see
his frivolous lifestyle jeopardizing his ability to repay.
The problem is, we have done well for ourselves and have a
high net worth, most of which is tied up in investments. We filled
out the FAFSA for one of our sons, only to find out that he didn’t
qualify for anything and we were supposed to finance his educa-
tion on our own. It’s frustrating to see that we pay taxes for less
fortunate kids and we have to pay the full load.
Any suggestions on how he can get financing on his own to
finish his degree? -- T.A., via email
DEAR T.A.: You mentioned that you told your son to seek
his own financing and that he came back needing a co-signer.
That’s not seeking his own financing.
Tell your son that you’re not willing to subsidize his frivolous
lifestyle. Tell him that if he gets a job and pays a fair amount of
his expenses, you might be willing to help him. Tell him that
unless he straightens up his act, he’s on his own. That is tough
love, but it sounds like just what he needs.
He is not acting responsibly by going out and doing what he
wants, and you are not teaching him a lesson in responsibility by
acquiescing, as apparently you have done up until now.
DEAR BRUCE: My wife passed away in early November
2012, and our car was financed in her name. It is a new car, and
I still owe $8,500 on it. It was registered in her name, and when
I called the bank about this, they told me I have to get a lawyer
to put the car in my name by going to probate court. Well, there
should be no reason to go to probate because there was no estate.
I thought that when a spouse died, the surviving spouse would get
whatever was left without going through probate.
I received a check from the insurance company for $250, the
balance left after the funeral charges. Also, we have a mobile
home that is paid for that I put up for sale for $35,000 and will
end up selling, if I am lucky, for $25,000. It was in both our
names, and the real estate lady told me that all I would need to
sell it would be the death certificate. Is this true?
I am 73 years old and just have Social Security for my income.
How do I get this taken care of without hiring a lawyer I can’t
afford? -- Reader, via email
DEAR READER: Even though it may not be large, your wife
does have an estate -- her share of the mobile home. You can file
to have yourself named administrator of her estate if she didn’t
have a will, and I would suggest you do so if this is the case.
There is no reason you can’t take her estate through probate
without an attorney. It may be difficult, but it can be done, and if
you don’t have the money, there is no alternative. I assume that
you are retired, so, if nothing else, you have time to do this.
It’s entirely possible that you can tell the bank through the pro-
bate court that the car is in your wife’s name alone, and the court
will offer to put it into your name. As to the mobile home, you
will have to go down to the county offices and ask how to transfer
it to only your name. The real estate agent may be accurate when
she says you have to show only the death certificate.
DEAR BRUCE: I bought a home in September 2005 for
$360,000. I put $72,000 down and borrowed $288,000 at a fixed
rate of 5.5 percent for 30 years. After 7 1/2 years, I owe $249,000.
I have managed to put away about $100,000, but of course I make
nothing on my CDs, savings, IRAs, etc.
Would it be wise for me to put a sizable sum of money
($20,000) toward paying off my mortgage? Would it be wise
to do this if I am going to stay in the home for many years, and
would it be wise if I’m going to sell it in a few years? -- Mike in
Long Island
DEAR MIKE: You make a valid point: You have scrimped
and saved $100,000, but you’re making nothing on your invest-
ments. Unless you’re willing to go into the market, which I think
you should consider, you would be wise to pay off as much on
the mortgage as possible. That effectively would result in getting
a 5.5 percent return on your investment.
You also should apply for a new mortgage. You should be
able to reduce your rate by 1.5 to 2 percentage points, which is
appreciable. If you could reduce your mortgage to 3.5 percent,
you would save approximately $4,800 a year in payments. Even
3.5 percent is much more than you’re getting on your CDs.

If you’re confused about fats these
days, you’re in good company, says
Consumer Reports. With research com-
ing in at breakneck speed in recent years,
even experts have a hard time agree-
ing about which fats we should con-
sume, and in what exact proportions, to
improve our health and prevent chronic
disease.
Here’s what the strongest evidence
says about healthy choices.
-- Are saturated fats still “bad”? Yes,
the best available evidence suggests that
saturated fat found in such food as meat,
full-fat cheese and cake is still worse for
you than the unsaturated fat in vegetable
oils, nuts and avocados. According to a
recent report from the United Nations,
there is convincing evidence that replac-
ing saturated fat with polyunsaturated fat
reduces the risk of heart disease.
There’s an important caveat: When
cutting saturated fats, substitute with
healthful alternatives, not refined carbo-
hydrates, which are found in such items
as white bread, pizza and snack foods.
Otherwise, you probably won’t reduce
your risk of heart disease and may well
increase it, according to the U.N. report.
-- Which are better: mono- or polyun-
saturated oils? Nutritionists can’t agree
about this one, though they do agree that
unsaturated fats are better than saturated
ones. On the one hand, there is plenty of
evidence to support the health benefits
of the Mediterranean diet, which calls
for generous amounts of olive oil, a
mostly monounsaturated fat. But when
researchers make direct comparisons of
mono- and polyunsaturated fats, they
generally find stronger evidence of a
cardio-protective effect for polyunsatu-
rated fat, found abundantly in safflower,
soybean and sunflower oils.
-- Should I consider the omega-6 to
omega-3 ratio? Omega-6 and omega-3
are two types of polyunsaturated fat -- a
“good” fat. Many studies suggest that
diets rich in two omega-3 fats -- eicosa-
pentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexae-
noic acid (DHA), found in high levels
in fish -- are linked to lower rates of
cardiovascular disease.
To maximize those heart benefits,
some experts recommend limiting ome-
ga-6 fat found in sources such as corn
oil and soybean oil, which have become
common in the human diet only in the
past 100 years or so, and getting more
omega-3s from traditional sources such
as fish.
-- Can fats affect cancer risk?
Consumer Reports notes that it’s your
body fat -- not the fat in your food --
that you should be worrying about most
when it comes to cancer risk. According
to a comprehensive 2007 review of stud-
ies by the World Cancer Research Fund
and the American Institute for Cancer
Research, there is no strong, convincing
evidence that eating more or less total
fat, or any individual type of fat, has any
significant effect on cancer.
Since obesity is one of the few diet-
related factors that is strongly and con-
sistently linked to a risk of cancer, the
best diet for cancer prevention may be
one that can help you maintain a healthy
weight.
-- Are coconut and palm oil good for
you? The consensus is that those oils are
loaded with cholesterol-raising saturated
fat. But dissenters say there is emerging
evidence that tropical oils, especially
coconut oil, behave differently in the
body than animal-derived saturated fats,
and might have underappreciated health
benefits.
What to do? Consumer Reports says
that your best bet for the time being is to
limit consumption of those oils but keep
an open mind.
-- How does processing affect the
benefits and risks of oil? Oils may be
processed using mechanical pressing or
heat and chemicals, a method that can
affect its flavor and potentially its health
benefits.
Olive oil, for example, is prized for
the complex flavors that are strongest
when the oil is fresh from the fruit.
That’s why higher grades (extra virgin
and virgin) are given only to mechani-
cally pressed oil that hasn’t been treated
with heat or chemicals. Those premium
oils contain higher quantities of antioxi-
dants, which are eliminated or reduced
from lesser oils during processing.

Former Herald
employee suing
newspaper
Staff reports
news@delphosherald.com
A former employee of the
Delphos Herald is suing the
newspaper.
Theresa Willmann of
Delphos filed the lawsuit in
Allen County Common Pleas
Court. She is seeking more
than $25,000 in damages, her
job back and education train-
ing for employees.
“Ms. Willmann resigned
from her position without any
notice after working for about
three months. The Delphos
Herald denies Willmann’s allega-
tions,” Delphos Herald General
Manager Ray Geary said.
Midwest Electric makes economic
development loan to Ergo Desktop
Information submitted
Ergo Desktop, Celina, has received
a $100,000 economic development loan
from Midwest Electric.
Ergo is a rapidly growing com-
pany that makes adjustable desktops
with separate shelves for keyboard and
monitor. The desktops allow employees
to stand while working, thus providing
ergonomic and health benefits.
Ergo is building a 23,000-square-
foot manufacturing and office facility
to meet rising sales. The company pres-
ently has 18 employees and will add
four with the expansion.
The Midwest Electric revolving loan
fund (RLF) was created in 2005 with
a $300,000 grant from USDA Rural
Development. As loans are repaid to
Midwest Electric, with interest, the
fund grows. Since its inception, the
RLF has made six loans to rural com-
munities and small businesses totaling
$665,000, supporting 43 jobs.
The Midwest Electric RLF provides
supplemental, or gap, financing. The
applicant must obtain a majority of its
project funds from a bank as well as a
minimum 10 percent owner equity.

Tomorrow’s
Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Preteen knows more about
‘birds and bees’ than she should
Dear Annie: I have an
11-year-old daughter, and
I feel she may know more
about the “birds and bees”
than she should because of
what she sees on TV and
hears on the radio. It seems
that every time I turn on the
radio, we hear a song with
the word “sex” in it multiple
times.
When we watch TV (even
so-called family shows on
family-oriented channels),
we see people passionately
kissing or using words like
“penis” and “vagina.” What
do you think of sharing infor-
mation about sex
with preteens? —
Mom
Dear Mom: By
the time a child
is 11, she should
know plenty about
the birds and the
bees, presumably
because her parents
have explained
things to her. And
she should also
know the correct
terms for parts of
the anatomy, in-
cluding the private parts.
Parents often wait to dis-
cuss these things with their
kids, not only because they
are uncomfortable doing so,
but also because they believe
their children don’t need this
information until they are
older and educating them will
somehow encourage them to
have sex. This is not true. It
only means your child will
get his or her sexual informa-
tion from unreliable and mis-
leading sources — friends,
the Internet, songs on the ra-
dio and messages on TV.
Teaching your child about
sex, with your own moral
values attached, will allow
her to respond appropriately
to situations when she en-
counters them — and she
undoubtedly will. When she
hears something objection-
able on TV or the radio, use
it as an opportunity to explain
your feelings on the subject.
And you always have the op-
tion of changing the channel,
setting parental controls or
turning it off.
Dear Annie: In the three
years that I’ve been with my
boyfriend, I’ve become very
close with his family. My
boyfriend’s brother, “Scott,”
has two children, ages 9 and
5. My concern is that they
have no heat in their house.
They say they periodically
cannot afford the bill. In-
stead, they use space heaters
in the bedrooms.
I get that the economy is
tough, and I’m not saying
I’ve never turned off my heat,
but I don’t have young chil-
dren. Their mother somehow
manages to get her hair done
at the salon every month, but
the kids can’t play in the fam-
ily room because it’s freez-
ing. Is this considered ne-
glect? I don’t want to jump to
conclusions. — Oregon
Dear Oregon: You are kind
to be concerned about these
kids. Assuming those space
heaters are working properly
and there are no fre hazards,
however, they do not seem to
be in any danger of hypother-
mia. Are they dressed warm-
ly? Can they bundle up in lots
of blankets?
Do they have other places
to go that are heated — the
grandparents’ house, school,
libraries, etc.? Your boyfriend
also can inform his brother
that Oregon, like other states,
offers assistance with heating
bills for low-income families.
He can check online or call
2-1-1 for local resources.
Dear Annie: I would like
to assure “Too Clean” that
she is not alone. My friends
call me “Mrs. OCD,” but my
logic is that anyone
can visit my house
at any time, and I
don’t have to be
concerned. It’s al-
ways clean.
And like “Too
Clean,” travel is
stressful for me. I
break out in hives
anytime I have to
go long distances,
and I’m trauma-
tized if I have to
use the restroom
away from home.
I fnd it easier when I keep
my mind and hands busy, so
I take my laptop and play
games, look at photos, read
and do crosswords. With to-
day’s technology, it is easy
to entertain my overactive
brain. This is my own form
of therapy. — Wyoming Dear
Wyoming: Thanks for the
great ideas.

Today’s joke:
Canadian geese are known to fly in a “V” shaped as
they migrate across the country. The lead goose in the
“V” cuts through the air making it easier for the rest of
the geese behind him. As that lead goose becomes tired,
it will drop off and join one of the sides and a new lead
goose will take over. This is done several times as they are
flying long distances.
So, if you look up in the sky and see a “V” shape of
geese and one side is longer than the other, do you know
what that means?
A: There are more geese on that side.

NTSB: Flight attendants ejected during crash
MARTHA MENDOZA
Associated Press
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. —
Two flight attendants in the back of Asiana
Airlines Flight 214 survived despite being
thrown onto the runway when the plane
slammed into a seawall and lost its tail dur-
ing a crash landing at San Francisco’s air-
port, the head of the National Transportation
Safety Board said Tuesday.
Chairwoman Deborah Hersman also
revealed that the pilots told investigators
they were relying on automated cockpit
equipment to control their speed during final
approach, which prompts questions about
whether a mistake was made in program-
ming the “autothrottle” or if the equipment
malfunctioned.
The plane crashed when it came in too
low and slow for landing. Hersman said the
pilot at the controls was only about halfway
through his training on the Boeing 777 and
was landing that type of aircraft at the San
Francisco airport for the first time ever. And
the co-pilot was on his first trip as a flight
instructor.
Saturday’s crash killed two people but
remarkably 305 others survived, most with
little or no physical injuries. A final determi-
nation on the cause of the crash is months
away and Hersman cautioned against draw-
ing any conclusions based on the informa-
tion revealed so far.
Audio recordings show pilots tried to
correct the plane’s speed and elevation only
until seconds before hitting the seawall at
the end of the runway, a calamitous impact
that sent the fuselage bouncing and skidding
across the airfield.
Here is what is known: Seven seconds
before impact, someone in the cockpit asked
for more speed after apparently noticing that
the jet was flying far slower than its recom-
mended landing speed. A few seconds later,
the yoke began to vibrate violently, an auto-
matic warning telling the pilot the plane is
losing lift and in imminent danger of an aero-
dynamic stall. One and a half seconds before
impact came a command to abort the landing.
The plane’s airspeed has emerged as a
key question mark in the investigation. All
aircraft have minimum safe flying speeds
that must be maintained or pilots risk a stall,
which robs a plane of the lift it needs to
stay airborne. Below those speeds, planes
become unmaneuverable.
Criminal probe in Quebec
oil train derailment
LAC-MEGANTIC, Quebec (AP) — Canadian authorities said
Tuesday they have opened a criminal investigation into the fiery wreck
of a runaway oil train in this small town as the death toll climbed to 15,
with dozens more bodies feared buried in the burned-out ruins.
Quebec police Inspector Michel Forget said investigators have “dis-
covered elements” that have led to a criminal probe. He gave no details
but ruled out terrorism.
The death toll rose with the discovery of two more bodies Tuesday.
About three dozen more people were missing. The bodies that have
been recovered were burned so badly they have yet to be identified.
Investigators zeroed in on whether a fire on the train a few hours
before the disaster set off a deadly chain of events that has raised
questions about the safety of transporting oil in North America by rail
instead of pipeline.
The unmanned Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway train broke
loose early Saturday and sped downhill in the darkness nearly seven
miles (11 kilometers) before jumping the tracks at 63 mph (101 kph)
near the Maine border. All but one of the 73 cars were carrying oil. At
least five exploded.
Rail dispatchers had no chance to warn anyone during the train’s
18-minute journey because they didn’t know it was happening them-
selves, Transportation Safety Board officials said Tuesday. Such warn-
ing systems are not in place on secondary rail lines, said TSB manager
Ed Belkaloul.
The derailment and explosions destroyed about 30 buildings,
including the Musi-Cafe, a popular bar that was filled at the time, and
forced about a third of the town’s 6,000 residents from their homes.
Resident Gilles Fluet saw the approaching train.
“It was moving at a hellish speed,” he said. “No lights, no signals,
nothing at all. There was no warning. It was a black blob that came out
of nowhere.”
He had just said goodbye to friends at the Musi-Cafe and left. “A
half-minute later and I wouldn’t be talking to you right now,” he said.
“There are those who ran fast and those who made the right deci-
sion. Those who fooled around trying to start their cars to leave the area,
there are probably some who burned in them,” Fluet said. “And some
who weren’t fast enough to escape the river of fire that ran down to the
lake, they were roasted.”
The same train caught fire hours earlier in a nearby town, and the
engine was shut down — standard operating procedure dictated by the
train’s owners, Nantes Fire Chief Patrick Lambert said.
Edward Burkhardt, president and CEO of the railway’s U.S.-based
parent company, Rail World Inc., suggested that shutting off the loco-
motive to put out the fire might have disabled the brakes.
“An hour or so after the locomotive was shut down, the train rolled
away,” he told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
‘Bless my Hotshot crew’: Survivor speaks at vigil
PRESCOTT VALLEY,
Ariz. (AP) — On a day filled
with speeches from dignitaries
including the vice president, the
words of the lone survivor of
a fire crew overrun by flames
resonated deepest in an arena
packed with firefighters from
around the nation.
A stone-faced Brendan
McDonough filed onto the
stage at the end of the service
and offered what’s called “The
Hot Shot’s Prayer,” calmly
reciting the words: “For if this
day on the line I should answer
death’s call, Lord, bless my
Hotshot crew, my family, one
and all.”
He concluded by telling the
crowd: “Thank you, and I miss
my brothers.”
McDonough spoke at a
memorial for the 19 members
of the Prescott-based Granite
Mountain Hotshots who died
June 30 when a wind-fueled,
out-of-control fire overran them
as they tried to protect a for-
mer gold-mining town from the
inferno.
Vice President Joe Biden
called them “men of uncom-
mon valor” while thanking God
that one member of the crew
survived unhurt.
“There’s an old saying: All
men are created equal, and then
a few became firefighters,”
Biden said. “Thank God for
you all. Thank God for your
willingness to take the risks
you do.”
The event was marked
by an outpouring of support
from firefighters from across
the country, who traveled to
the Prescott area to honor their
fallen brethren.
They talked about how
firefighters are accustomed to
answering the call of duty when
the alarm sounds and sends
them into harm’s way, whether
it’s a fire in a forest, house or
apartment. And they noted that
the same can be said when a
fellow firefighter dies.
“When you hear of a death,
especially a group of firefight-
ers, and there’s 19 that we’re
here to mourn, there’s no ques-
tion that at the drop of a hat
you do what you can to go
and support the fire service
and their families,” said Capt.
Steve Brown of the Rancho
Cucamonga, who brought 17
others in his department of 85
uniformed firefighters from
California.
The memorial in Prescott
Valley began with a choir
singing “On Eagle’s Wings”
as Biden sang along from the
sidelines. Homeland Security
Secretary and former Arizona
Gov. Janet Napolitano looked
on, as did Sen. John McCain
and his wife, Cindy, and
other members of the state’s
congressional delegation.
Biden talked about the 1972
death of his wife and young
daughter in a traffic crash, and
how firefighters freed his sons
from the mangled wreckage.
“I don’t have the privi-
lege of knowing any of these
heroes personally, but I know
them. I know them because
they saved the lives of my
two sons,” Biden said. He also
said firefighters rushed him
to a hospital after he suffered
an aneurysm in 1998, and he
credited firefighters with sav-
ing his wife Jill after lightning
once struck their home.
Gov. Jan Brewer praised
people around the country for
responding as she hoped they
would — with candlelight
vigils, financial contributions,
prayers, and flowers and notes
placed at makeshift memori-
als.
“Of course our hearts are
filled with profound sadness
today, but they’re also filled
with great pride,” she said.
“How wonderful is it to know
that Arizona was home to 19
men like those we honor today.”
Outside the minor league
hockey arena, each of the 19
firefighters was represented by
a U.S. flag and a purple ribbon
with his name. A bronze statue
of a wildland firefighter with an
ax in hand, stood in front as if
guarding the building.
Inside, each firefighter’s
name scrolled across an elec-
tronic board on two sides of the
arena. Lined up in front of the
stage were 19 sets of firefight-
ing gear, complete with com-
memorative Pulaski tools simi-
lar to the ones the elite crew
uses to dig lines around fires.
Prescott Fire Chief Dan
Fraijo gave the tools to the fire-
fighters’ families, along with

Lawn chair balloonist
says flying days are done
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon man who made
headlines with his numerous flights in a lawn chair suspended
from party balloons said Tuesday that between the high price of
helium and a fine from the Federal Aviation Administration, his
flying days might be done — at least in the U.S.
Bend gas station owner and craft beer seller Kent Couch said
helium costs five times what it did when he made his first flight
in 2006.
And the FAA fined him $4,500 in February for his July 14,
2012, tandem flight with Iraqi adventurer Fareed Lafta. The fine
was reported Monday by The Bend Bulletin.
“We need them,” Couch said of the agency. “But they cer-
tainly dampened my spirit of flying.”
The FAA says Couch and Lafta flew without pilot’s licenses,
failed to register the lawn chairs as an aircraft, failed to have the
contraption certified as airworthy, and were careless and reckless
when the balloon took off without them after they landed in a
farm field.
Couch says the FAA agreed to reduce the fine from $5,500
to $4,500 after he talked to its lawyer. He said he paid the fine
by certified check in February or March with money he received
from a sponsor.
But FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory said in an
email that the agency has no record of the payment. The FAA
levied a similar fine against Lafta, but he is out of the country and
has not responded, Cory said.
“I think they are just making me a scapegoat or an example,
to keep other people from doing it,” said Couch.
Apparently it didn’t work.
A La Center, Wash., man launched his own lawn chair bal-
loon last month to celebrate his 60th birthday. He managed to
fly 24 miles before getting stuck in a tree, far short of his goal of
more than 250 miles.
Couch said the FAA interviewed him after some of his previ-
ous flights, but this is the first time it levied a fine.
In his 2006 flight, Couch traveled 99 miles before the bal-
loons started popping and he had to bail out. In 2007, he flew 193
miles before running low on helium and landing in the sagebrush
of Eastern Oregon.
In 2008, he floated at 35 mph across the high desert and land-
ed in a pasture in the farming community of Cambridge, Idaho,
after pulling out his trusty BB rifle and shooting enough balloons
to come to earth. The lawn chair from that flight is in a museum.
He was at it again in 2010 when he raced another law chair
balloonist on a flight that went about 70 miles.
Couch theorized the fine came because he had a co-pilot on
the 2012 flight, but Cory said that was not the case.
Still up in the air is whether Couch and Lafta go through with
a flight in Iraq. Couch and his wife, Susan, went to Dubai in 2011
in hopes of making the flight, but it never got off the ground.
Couch says Lafta has put it on hold.
“I’ll never regret doing those flights, based just on the great
sense of being able to fly through the air like a cloud,” Couch
said.

“Frank has just been great,” Wiltsie said. “The professionalism and
diligence has been exemplary. We will miss him.”
Sukup thanked the board for allowing him to serve as their interim
superintendent.
“I hope I’ve done a good job and I wish you the best,” Sukup said.
Chad Schrader was hired as the Jefferson Middle School cus-
todian, pending completion of proper certification. Sukup said the
district is having difficulty finding a boiler instructor to assist Schrader
in taking his certification.
“The new schools don’t have boilers so they are becoming obso-
lete, “ Sukup said. “The former custodian said Mr. Schrader will need
an instructor to pass the test.”
A last-minute item on the agenda was the resignation of sixth-
grade teacher Ryan Carder. Carder had taught math and Language
Arts and was going to teach Social Studies, reading and Language
Arts before tendering his resignation.
Sukup said his position will be posted in-house and if not filled,
will be offered outside the district.
The board issued a new one-year contract for the 2013-14 school
year to Dave Hoffman to serve as Digital Academy/athletic assis-
tant; Alan Unterbrink, Auxiliary Services guidance counselor; Mark
Fuerst, elementary principal; Pat Poling, district library aide; and
Sandy Schmersal and Doris Knebel as bus drivers.
They also issued one-year supplemental contracts to Denise
Lindeman, eighth-grade girls basketball coach; Chris Sommers,
junior high boys basketball coach; Heather Brickner, freshman class
advisor; Missy McClurg, junior class advisor; and McClurg and
Shana McCormick to share the prom coordinator duties.
In other business, the board:
• Authorized the treasurer to seek milk and bread bids for the
upcoming school year;
• Accepted the supplemental resignation from Ryan Walls as assis-
tant wrestling coach;
• Accepted the resignation from Lindsey Wisher as three- hour
cook at Jefferson Middle School;
• Issued an addendum to the treasurer’s contract to make it for 260
days annually at the same daily rate; and
• Recommend the board move Jeff Rex to the masters plus 15 hour
column as per the negotiated agreement.

Last week, the White
House unexpect edl y
announced a one-year
delay in the employer
requirement, saying the
admi ni st rat i on needed
more time to work out
technical details that
employers find too burden-
some. Some saw a political
motive, since Republicans
have criticized the require-
ment on businesses as a
“job killer.”
But administration offi-
cials said that the individ-
ual mandate would remain
in place.
The two requirements
are different. While the
mandate on individuals is
expected to play a major
role in getting people to
sign up for coverage, the
empl oyer requi rement
is more of a backstop,
designed to deter compa-
nies from shifting to the
government their tradi-
tional role in providing
health benefits.
The individual mandate
applies to virtually every
U.S. resident, with excep-
tions for financial hard-
ship, people who entered
the country illegally, and
prison inmates. The cover-
age requirement survived
a determined legal chal-
lenge by opponents of the
health care law. A divided
Supreme Court upheld the
mandate last year, rea-
soning that the penalties
which enforce it are taxes
constitutionally levied by
Congress.
Those individual penal-
ties start small — as little
as $95 next year — but
they build up with time.
The Congressional Budget
Office estimated last year
some 4 million individu-
als without insurance will
pay about $55 billion in
penalties over the course
of nearly a decade. The
overwhelming majority of
Americans already have
coverage — through an
employer, a government
program, or by buying
their own plan — and will
not have to worry about
the fines.
The GOP leaders’ let-
ter also requested that
the administration pro-
vide detailed information
on the impact of its deci-
sion to delay the employer
mandate.

It was in 2002 that Keltner joined the
military and enlisted with the 122nd Fighter
Wing of the Indiana Air National Guard
where he served for seven years as an aircraft
armament systems technician and attained
the rank of E-6, or technical sergeant.
“In that career field, we did everything
from loading bombs and bullets to over-
hauling the gun system to troubleshooting
and repairing the electrical system that con-
trolled the weapons on the F-16C,” reflected
Keltner. “It was a great experience that laid
the cornerstone for my military career.”
When Keltner first enlisted in the
military, he did not have the eyesight to
become a pilot but after corrective laser
surgery, was offered to became a pilot
candidate. His wife pushed him to pursue
his dreams. In 2009, Keltner was selected
for a pilot position and attended officer
training school at Maxwell Air Force Base
in Montgomery, Ala., and earned his com-
mission as a Second Lieutenant. His flight
training began with initial flight screening
at Doss Aviation in Pueblo, Colo., which
was followed by undergraduate pilot train-
ing at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Okla.,
and was completed with KC-135 initial
qualification at Altus Air Force Base in
Altus, Okla.
“After two weeks of flying with an
instructor, we achieved our first milestone as
Air Force pilots in training and began flying
solo,” remarked Keltner. “Over the next four
months, we would take four check-rides cov-
ering basic pattern procedures and maneu-
vers, advanced aerobatics, instruments and
formation. In the final phase of training, we
completed the same check-rides again but to
a much higher level of difficulty.”
During this time, Keltner began each day
around 6 a.m. and spent more than 12 hours
each day in the field. This tiresome day
was always completed with additional time
studying for the next day’s material.
“It’s hard to describe the stress that
accompanies a program where you could
have to fly an airplane and/or simulator up
to three times per day and at any point three
failed events could remove you from pilot
training entirely.”
Just over a year after starting, Keltner
completed the first step of pilot training and
officially earned his wings. After completing
initial qualification courses, the new pilot
moved to back to his home state and joined
the 121st Air Refueling Wing in Columbus.
“I am passionate about flying,” said
Keltner. “I would challenge you to find
a pilot that is not passionate about flying.
There is something about getting airborne
and seeing things from such a different point
of view that draws you back time and time
again. Flying is a blend of art and science
that is both simple and complete and no two
flights are ever the same.”
Nearly two months ago, Keltner felt the
effects of a tragic refueling accident that
affected part of his division. Full details of
the accident have yet to be released and
remains under investigation.
“The flying community is a small and
tight knit one and we are affected just as one
would be affected by the loss of a coworker
to an accident,” noted Keltner. “The people
are the biggest positive about my job. I have
had the opportunity to serve with the best
America has to offer. I have been consistent-
ly impressed by the dedication, professional-
ism and courage of the men and women I
have served with all around the world.”
Keltner does not make these travels with
the service alone and is joined by his wife
Megan, a 2000 Crestview graduate, and
their two children, Piper and Wyatt. His
family has been positively affected by his
job as well as the being able to make lifelong
friendships with people that are now scat-
tered all across the country.
Keltner has enjoyed having the opportu-
nity to see so much of the world as travelling
and working overseas has given him an
amazing perspective on the circumstances
around him. It has all been a wonderful expe-
rience for Keltner, especially the opportunity
to be a part of something that benefits others.
“It is hard to single out the negatives of
my job because so many times what seems
like a bad situation has given me the greatest
reward,” said Keltner. “Being away from
home is always difficult but it is the separa-
tion that makes the homecoming such an
amazing feeling.”
Keltner just recently accepted a flying
positive with the 161st Air Refueling Wing
with the Arizona Air National Guard and
spent the 2013 Fourth of July week moving
his family to their new home.
“I have had a great run with my career
and I just want to keep giving it my best and
see where the new opportunities take me,”
said Keltner. “I am a firm believer in doing
your best no matter what the circumstances
because you never know what doors it will
open.”
