State highway speed limits likely to increase
Information submitted COLUMBUS — For the second time this year, speed limits on some Ohio roadways are about to go up, this time on certain sections of U.S. routes and state routes. The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is increasing some speed limits on 607 miles of roadway as a result of new legislation passed by the Ohio General Assembly earlier this year, which becomes effective on Sunday. The legislation increases speeds on: • Rural divided highways to 60 miles per hour (194 miles of roadway); • Rural expressways without traffic control signals to 65 miles per hour (15 miles of roadway); and • Rural freeways to 70 miles per hour (398 miles of roadway). “Raising speed limits is not something the state takes lightly,” ODOT Director Jerry Wray said. “We put much time and consideration into identifying roadways where speed limits could increase while maintaining a safe commute for Ohio motorists.” The legislative changes require ODOT to produce 1100 new highway signs at a cost of $114,845. Most of the signs – 580 – will be completely new and placed along the roadway, while the rest – 520 – are simply overlays that will cover a portion of an existing speed limit sign. The costs include materials and labor for producing the new signs. Most signs are expected to be fully installed and visible to motorists by Friday. Here is a link to regional maps highlighting changes to speed limits as required by the legislation: dot.state.oh.us/ Divisions/Operations/ Traffic/miscellaneous/ Pages/Speed-IncreaseMaps-9-2013.aspx The legislation also establishes uniformity in speed limits for both cars and truck so that each vehicle is permitted to go the same speed on any Ohio roadway. In order to comply with the legislation, speed limits on some roadways may stay the same for cars but will increase for trucks. Seventy-mile-per-hour speed limits are not new to Ohio. On July 1, speed limits on 570 miles of rural Ohio interstates increased from 65 to 70 for both cars and trucks. Motorists were already legally permitted to drive 70 on all 241 miles of the Ohio Turnpike. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 34 other states in the nation have some posted speed limits of 70 or higher, including Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky and West Virginia.

Apple yields rebound
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com VAN WERT — All the elements came together this year to make putting out apples as close to perfect as growers could anticipate. Van Wert County OSU Extension Educator Dr. Curtis Young said this year’s weather promoted lots of good quality apples. There was no hard late spring frost to detour blooms and adequate water throughout the season. “During the five-week period when the rain shut off, the apples established and the dry season sweetened them up,” Young detailed. Young said if people are looking for a tart apple, try the McIntosh; and if they enjoy something sweeter, the Gala and Honeycrisp apple will delight those taste buds. “Of course, it’s a preference,” Young stated. “In terms of taste, Galas are just ‘primo’.” The tremendous fruit set — five or six apples per node brought on by the ideal weather — had to be thinned by hand clipping all but one or two apples from the nodes of newer trellised varieties or by chemical or mechanical thinning of the fruit on larger, older trees. “The size of the apples are determined by the orchard,” Young explained. “ The more fruit per node that is permitted to mature, the smaller the apple.” See APPLES, page 10

‘Rockets Away’ at Fort Jennings

This week, sixth-grade students at Fort Jennings Elementary took part in the “Rockets Away” 4-H program sponsored by the Ohio State University Extension in Putnam County. On Monday, teacher Jason Hedrick guided the students through classroom experiences learning launch time data, including velocity, miles per hour, height and experimenting with fin design. Students worked in teams of two building and launching their rockets on Friday. Readying themselves for the next launch is, from the left, Tyler Kahle and Hedrick. Hedrick said the record flight from past launches was 400 feet in the air and 11 seconds long. (Delphos Herald/Stephanie Groves)

Uncle Sam wants you, not your flu!
BY MARY M. GROTHAUSE Staff Writer news@delphosherald.com One of the world’s deadliest pandemics was little known or reported almost 100 years ago. The Spanish Influenza outbreak in 1918 spread worldwide and killed 20-40 million people, 600,000 people in the United States alone. More people died of the flu than during World War I — 16 million. More people died in the approximate one-year outbreak of influenza than died in the four years (1347-51) of the bubonic plague. Twenty-five percent of the United States population were effected and life expectancy dropped by 12 years. So why was the 1918 flu pandemic reported on so seldom? The war was at its height and censorship was heavily applied to most countries. However, Spain, which chose to stay out of the war, didn’t censor information that was sent overseas. A cable sent from Spain to London stated, “A Strange Form of Disease of Epidemic Character has appeared in Madrid. Mild Nature, no deaths being reported.” Thus the new disease was called Spanish flu or Spanish lady, being the first country to officially recognize it. See FLU page 10

Today is Saturday, Sept. 28, the 271th day of 2013. There are 94 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 28, 1787, the Congress of the Confederation voted to send the just-completed Constitution of the United States to state legislatures for their approval. On this date: In 1066, William the Conqueror invaded England to claim the English throne. In 1542, Portuguese navigator Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo arrived at present-day San Diego. In 1781, American forces in the Revolutionary War, backed by a French fleet, began their successful siege of Yorktown, Va. In 1850, flogging was abolished as a form of punishment in the U.S. Navy. In 1920, eight members of the Chicago White Sox were indicted for allegedly throwing the 1919 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds in what became known as the “Black Sox” scandal. Despite initial confessions by several of the players, all were acquitted at trial; still, all eight were banned from baseball for life.

A bomb exploded outside an upscale nightclub in southwestern Colombia, killing at least 13 people. Movie director Elia Kazan died in New York at age 94. Tennis champion Althea Gibson died in East Orange, N.J., at age 76. Five years ago: President George W.

Austrian 16-year-olds voted for the first time in parliamentary elections under a law adopted in 2007. One year ago: Citing national security risks, President Barack Obama blocked a Chinese company from owning four wind farm projects in northern Oregon near a Navy base where the U.S. military flies unmanned drones and electronic-warfare planes on training missions. The Obama administration sought to rally Syria’s opposition with pledges of $45 million in new nonlethal and humanitarian assistance.

The Herald – 3


T his and
In the first two chapters of the Dienstberger Family, you were introduced to the Dienstberger Foundation, founded by Arnold Dienstberger, in memory of his wife, Emma. Next came Jacob, the immigrant ancestor of all the Dienstbergers in Delphos Jacob arrived in America in 1850 and moved to Delphos in 1851, where he married Caroline Gessner. They had four children: Charles, Christopher, Amelia and Mary. The parents of Jacob were Lorenz (Lawrence) and Johanna (Schalk) Dienstberger. Two of Jacob’s siblings, Gertrude and Nicholas, came to America and settled in Connecticut. Their brother, Johan Baptist (born 1819), remained in Germany. Just in recent years, the descendants of Johan Baptist got in touch with Paul Roger Dienstberger of Ashland. Paul told how they found each other: “Our touch with John’s family in Laushein, Germany, was through the Internet. Marcus (born 1986) was in junior high and found my book online. He contacted us and asked if we were related. We said, ‘Yes, through Lawrence’. His brother Clemens (born 24 April 1983) has visited us twice in Ashland: in September 2007 and June 2011, with his wife Lucia. In 2008, our grandson Tyson was in France for an Ohio University class. He took a side trip to Germany and visited that family in Laushein. Clemens and I are in the same fifth generation and have the same birthdays, just 43 years apart in age! We just checked the war and the birth dates to understand the gap.” Paul Roger sent me a family chart with photographs. The first generation of Dienstbergers (the children of Lawrence and Caroline) were: Gertrude (1817 – 1904), who married Phillips Ante; Jacob (1831 – 1904), who married Caroline Gessner; Nicholas (1822 – 1905) and Johann (born 1819), who remained in Germany. The second generation (the children of Jacob and Caroline Gessner Dienstberger) were: Charles, 1854 – 1935, who married Rosina Wiedemann, 1857 – 1941; Christopher, 1863 or 1864 – 1911, who married Catherine Phlospher, 1866 – 1936; Amelia, 1857 - 1928, who married Tobias Foster, 1850 – 1927; and Mary, 1861 – 1950, who married Henry Jettinghoff, 1858 – 1950. Charles and Rosina were parents of Cedelia, William, Arnold and Carl. The third generation (children of Charles and Rosina Wiedemann Dienstberger) included: Cedelia, 1882 – 1966, who married A. O. Smith; William C., 1886 – 1971, who married Zoe Dill, 1888 – 1968; Arnold, 1891 – 1980, who married Emma Bucholtz, 1886 – 1963; and Carl, 1900 – 1984, who married Mollie Smith, 1901 – 1973. The third generation also included the children of Christopher (sometimes called Christian) and Catherine Phlospher, 1866-1936. They were Jacob Joseph, 1883 – 1968, who married Anna Hirn; Nora, 1885, who married T. W. Olson; Nicholas, 1887 – 1957, who married Dorothy Leiptine; Amelia, 1890, who married Edward Alexander; Myra, 1891, who married Fabius Reed; Ethel, 1894, who married Lloyd Foley; and Herman, 1903 – 1984, who married Theresia Allmeir, 1924. The fourth generation included: Carl Owen Smith (son of Cedelia and A. O. Smith); Carl Dienstberger Jr., 1932; and Sally Ann, 1935, (children of Carl and Mollie Smith Dienstberger). The children of William C., 1886 – 1971, and Zoe Dill, 1888-1968, were: Evelyn,

Bob and Doris were able to spend 52 years together. The children of Jacob Joseph and Anna Hirn were also members of the fourth generation. They are: Cletus, who lived in Michigan; Merle, who lived in North Carolina; Leslie “Les”, living in Delphos: LaDonna, married to Albert Guley, lived in California; Martha, who married John Bishop; and Irma, age 90, who lives in Tennessee. Les hopes to get to Tennessee to visit his sister before the snow flies. Since I started the Dienstberger Story in late July, two leaves have fallen from the family tree. They are Doris Keller Dienstberger, 87, widow of Bob Dienstberger, who died in 2006; and Dr. Richard Hurt, husband of Sally Dienstberger, who passed away during this year of 2013. The next chapter will start with the fifth generation and will include personal stories of the members of the Dienstberger clan. The fifth, sixth and seventh generations, etc. includes many descendants of Paul and Dolores Dienstberger and Bob Dienstberger. This list is not complete but most of them live in Delphos. Any information on these family members will be appreciated.

San Antonio, Texas — Organized opposition to the roadside advertising abuse is developing in various parts of the United States, according to Old Spanish trail officials. That organization as a department of beautification, and the advertising nuisance is one of its points of attack. Sixteen truckloads of signs have been removed from the Old Spanish trail between San Antonio and Berne. The women built up sentiment; they personally called on numerous property owners and obtained signed authorization to remove signs on private lands. Delphos Herald, Mar. 21, 1925 ————— History of the Telephone “Number please!” And then you ask for one of 1,000,000 telephones. March 6, 1876, Alexander Graham Bell, a teacher of “Visible Speech” to deaf mutes, was working on an apparatus he had named “telephone.” He was in the attic of the electrical workshop of Charles Williams, 109 Court Street, Boston. Two stories down was Thomas Watson, an electrician and machinist. Bell and his assistant had been working for nine months trying to talk over an electrical wire. A jumble of broken vocal sounds had been the net result. Then these words came clearly and distinctly to the electrician: “Come here, Watson; I want you!” Jan. 25, 1915, Bell in Boston repeated this same sentence over 3,600 miles of wire to Watson in San Francisco, using the same original transmitter and receiver. President Walter Gifford, just elected, can now talk with every nook and cranny of the country over the 34,000,000 miles of the wires of the Bell Telephone system of the American Telephone & Telegraph Company and 25 associated companies.

The Delphos School Board is considering a resolution to provide for a full 180 days of school so that the maximum sum may be received from the state. The new law also provide for the payment by the state of 8 1/2 cents per day per pupil from children in kindergarten. It may be possible that arrangements will be made to have a kindergarten in the Delphos schools and participate also in this payment.

The timber was discovered during excavations behind King William Street. It is in good condition, although it has been buried for centuries. It is in the possession of Thomas Williams, a member of the London and Middlesex archaeological society, who, with other experts, says is part of the first embankment built by the Romans. A member of the society said the timbered embankment is 83 feet north of the Roman wall, probably built 200 years later. Whole trunks of trees, piled one above the other, six deep and banked by crosstimbers were found in such


Window to the Past
The school year of the Delphos public school may be slightly lengthened in the future, as a result of the provisions of the new foundation program for state support of the schools. As another result of this new set-up, there is a possibility that a kindergarten may be made a part of the Delphos school system. The state support allowed under the new law is 17 cents per day per pupil for the first eight grades and 25 1/2 cents per day per pupil for those in the upper four grades. These payments are to be based on the actual number of days of school. The Delphos Public schools have nine months of school, a total of 180 days.

“We shouldn’t teach great books; we should teach a love of reading.” — B.F. Skinner, psychologist, author, inventor

Bunnies on the brain
If you’ve met our Little Ringo, the first thing you may notice is his relentless attention to whatever it is that has caught his attention at the time. He has a one-track mind. Our neighbor girl recently brought home three rabbits for her FFA SAE project and her dad built the hutch for the little furry bundles. Ringo watched this process carefully. By carefully, I mean he would see neighbor Dave working and he would try to help and when he was scolded for getting in the way, he would back up and sit down, refusing to move — and watch. He met Rain, Storm and Tornado when they were still living in their carriers. Noses touched and there was sniffing aplenty. The bunnies didn’t seem to mind and were almost as curious as Ringo — almost. Since their new hutch has been completed, Ringo races to Dave’s yard and peeks around the corner to see if anyone is tending to his friends or if the door to the hutch is open. Rain is in the bottom cage and the only one Ringo can easily reach. They touch noses as if they are long-lost friends. You might say this has become an obsession for Ringo. In the past, the first task on his mind had been to water something. Now, it’s to get to his friend Rain. When they see each other, Ringo will look back at me as if to say, “Mom, look at her! She’s so soft and warm and smells good!” I’m hoping he doesn’t think “she smells good” like a cheeseburger smells good and he’s never heard the phrase, “Tastes like chicken!” My husband and I have also visited the


On the Other hand
hutch next door and are enamored as well. Who doesn’t like soft, warm bunnies with twitching noses? No one, I tell you. Well, there may be a few but they are suspect in my book. My siblings had rabbits when I was growing up. We had a hutch just off the back porch. I can remember my brother feeding them carrots. One afternoon, he must have just started feeding them and he asked if I wanted to pet one. Of course I did. I stuck my finger through the cage hoping to feel soft fur and instead, got a nip for my troubles. And then the bunnies were gone. I’m a little fuzzy on the details and I’m hoping the novelty wore off and they went to another home. My brother teased me for years (and still does) that because the rabbit bit me, my dad was angry and we ate them. What?!? I sure hope that isn’t true. I’m calling my mom to see what’s up with that story. If it’s not true, he’s going to be in big trouble! Anywho, I have a feeling the bunnies next door are going to be a diversion for all us. I can’t wait for baby bunnies this spring. Who doesn’t love baby bunnies?

DEAR EDITOR: On July 29 of this year one of our worst fears occurred; a fire at our home. I have dealt with the Delphos Fire and Rescue employees for many years in the capacity of having them teach the preschool children at Kreative Learning where I have worked for the past 16 years. Having Kevin Streets teach the little kids about safety and what to do if there is a fire is priceless when it comes to your child surviving a fire. You never really think you will have a fire at your house. I guess what you really call it is praying you never have a fire. When it happens, you realize how valuable time is. Time is everything when you are trying to keep your house from burning to the ground. Handling the thoughts after the safety of the firemen leave your home is not easy. Trying to sleep that night waking up wondering if the fire will start back up, (even though Bunny checked the walls with the thermal sensor) is something you have a hard time dealing with. Making your 20-year-old college student sleep downstairs that very night so you can get her out if it comes back. These are all things every person must deal with when having a fire at their home. On Sept. 8, we once again needed the services of the First Responder and EMT personnel when our son broke his tibia and fibula and needed to be transported by ambulance to the hospital. Again, time was imperative. I have been reading some of the comments in The Delphos Herald concerning police and fire rescue. I would like to ask the citizens of the Delphos voting district: Can you really afford to wait 20-25 minutes for the fire department to reach your house? We live six miles from the fire department it took the fire department approximately 11 minutes to reach our house. I truly believe that the metal roof on our house was what kept it from being burnt to the ground in those 11 short minutes until the fire department was here to do what they do best. When our son broke his leg, the first responder was here within 13 minutes. If you are having a massive heart attack do you think time will be important? Of course it will. No one ever wants to use the services of the Delphos Fire and Rescue but the fact is we will use them. It may be your house next time, or your loved one who is hurt. I do not pretend to have any answers for the budget issues in the city of Delphos but I can tell you from personal experience, cutting our fire and rescue or police department is very disturbing to me. I ask everyone to look deep, ask yourselves do we need to cut fire, police, EMT or do we need to see where the waste really is within the city? Is the fact that some people are focusing on the overtime for the fire department or the fact that we have so many police officers really the problem? Will that fix the budget? Maybe this year but what about next year? Does this mean relying on volunteers will be our only option? People of Delphos, I ask you to really think about taking away Delphos Fire and Rescue or Delphos Police department employees. Ask yourselves if you are going to want time on your side when you need one of these departments or do you want to have everyone with a scanner in town to keep saying please, please someone get to those people in need and 20 minutes later still saying that same prayer because that is what happens when you move to an all-volunteer department. That is what I do when I hear some of the neighboring towns call out for their department assistance of volunteers. Please understand I am not saying volunteers are not where it is at, they, too, serve a very important purpose in our community. Look for the fat elsewhere in the city. I am sure there is plenty of other positions that our city can live without. Sincerely, Brenda Hoersten Delphos DEAR EDITOR: As a citizen of Delphos and a member of Delphos City Council, I am writing this letter in support of the 1/4 percent income tax proposal on the November ballot. This 1/4 percent income tax would cost a wage earner $2.50 on every $1,000 earned. I originally ran for City Council more than 14 years ago because I enjoy living in Delphos and raising my family here and I thought I could make a difference. The 1/4 percent income tax will not solve all of our problems over night but it will get us headed in the right direction. Over the past 14 years on Council, I feel I have made a real effort to make the right decisions on issues before Council. It certainly has been my intent to make decisions based on what is right for the City of Delphos. I am asking for your support for the 1/4 percent income tax when you go to the polls on Nov. 5 to make sure Delphos continues to be a city we can all be proud of. Thanks for your support, Kevin Osting Councilman at Large DEAR EDITOR, A simple Thank You doesn’t seem enough to say to those whose hard work and dedication www.edwardjones.com made this past weekend’s Canal Days Festival such a huge success. It starts with the Canal Days www.edwardjones.com Committee and continues with the hundreds of others who sold food, ran pageants, organized events, manned museums and art shows, cleaned up or just simply helped. You all exemplify the great, indomitable spirit of Delphos. And finally, Krendl, or as most people around here know him, Paul Krendl Not only is he an incredibly talented illusionist and entertainer, he is also a genuinely good guy. After Saturday evening’s performance, he stayed after the show to sign autographs and have pictures taken until the last person left nearly 40 minutes later. And he did it all with a big smile and genuine enthusiasm. Very proud he’s a Delphos kid. To those who simply enjoyed the weekend, next year step up and lend a hand. Be part of something great!

The GOP’s lose-lose proposition
WASHINGTON — Ask most people on Capitol Hill and they’ll say: 50-50. Those are the odds they give for a government shutdown. An alternative to the shutdown would be a proposed delay of the individual mandate, the most painful part of Obamacare, which may seem like a Republican victory but upon closer inspection would be a win for President Obama and Democrats. Historians — or commentators in the meantime — might view either of these possible outcomes as yet another “Putinesca” victory for the president: Saved by the enemy. Just as Russian President Vladimir Putin emerged at the brink of the U.S. bombing of Syria to orchestrate an alternative solution, Republicans may have provided a rip cord for Obama. Postponement of the individual mandate is part of the GOP bargaining package on raising the debt ceiling. Delay it for a year, say Republican leaders, and they’ll raise the debt limit for a year to keep the government operating. At least one Democrat, Joe Manchin, has conceded that this would be a pretty good idea since the health care overhaul obviously isn’t ready. The many flaws have been fully vetted for months, though new ones continue to reveal themselves as we approach the insuranceexchange shopping spree scheduled to begin in a few days. Latest to the fraying Affordable (now “Adorable”) Care Act is a technological glitch in online applications for small businesses. It isn’t ready yet and will be delayed. What is ready, and adorable, is a sampler of new ads aimed at children who are still fretful about the new plan. Oh, wait, no. The ads, featuring baby ducks and kittens — purring and feel-

Point of View
ing ducky about Obamacare — are aimed at adults. They’re certifiably cute, but one can’t escape the thought that the federal government has skipped all pretense at treating Americans as adults. Naptime, anyone? To be fair, Sen. Ted Cruz read Dr. Seuss’ “Green Eggs and Ham” to his children during his 21-hour un-filibuster. The muse whispers: “Ted Cruz would send Ronald Reagan back to the Democratic Party.” Here’s the problem for Republicans, which will not be news to those with a view of the long game. The short game is to stall Obamacare, but to what end ultimately? Until Republicans can seize the Senate in 2014 and the White House in 2016, at which point they can repeal the whole thing? Skinny chance, that. More likely, whether the government shuts down or, should Tinker Bell suddenly materialize and convince Obama to cave and postpone his personal dream act, Republicans will be viewed by a greater majority than previously as having no talent for leadership. And if the debt ceiling isn’t raised and the United States defaults, threatening our full faith and credit around the world and sending countries looking favorably for other currencies, not to mention the financial fallout here, then blame will fall at the feet of the Republican Party. No surprise there. Now consider the alternative scenario: Suppose Republicans succeed in getting the individual mandate delayed for a year

Enrolling for a new health plan Moderately confused

Not necessarily. If voters don’t have to experience the uncertainty and discomfort of being forced to buy insurance in an unwieldy, dysfunctional system — all the while noticing that millions are still without coverage — who benefits? Surely not the Republicans, who, on the one hand, can be blamed for depriving insurance coverage to those poor sick kittens and ducklings. On the other, they accrue no benefit from having prevented the pain of implementing Obamacare. Republicans lose either way, but they may lose biggest if they win. Alternatives to present circumstances do not abound. Republicans have drawn their red line in the sand. Democrats have drawn theirs. Obama says no negotiating over the debt ceiling, period. There is one alternative that is both perhaps best for the country and hardest for Obama. He could relent not to Republicans but to the greater good. He could delay full implementation past the 2014 elections, which would accomplish two things: One, he could iron out the wrinkles that are now apparent. Two, Democrats would get to slide through another election cycle without the most visibly painful part of Obamacare — the individual mandate. What, really, does Obama have to lose? Only face, the pain of which passes. What he would gain is the legacy that escapes so many these days — proof that he is a leader who does the right thing, even if it hurts his pride just a little. Republicans, who will have banished themselves to wander a while longer in the desert, may have drawn a line too far. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.

Another Canal Days in the books. Thanks to a great committee for their hard work. I, along with throngs of other people, enjoyed the great atmosphere. I took vacation days just to be able to partake of the whole scene. I got to do everything I wanted from the Toast to the City to the Antique Tractor show to the Quilt Show to the Pet Parade and Water Ball fight to Basket Bingo, and of course the fair food, the Art Show and all the various other activities in between. I was worn out as was my little grandson. The way he squealed with delight though on the rides was well worth it and put a smile on our faces. Speaking of smiles, people were delighted with the Halloween Shop that was developed and decorated after the Thrift Shop purchased the Lehmann building adjacent to our building. Someone told me they were having their annual Halloween party for their son and his class and she was able to find tons of decorations to set around and to hang to set the atmosphere for the party. The Halloween and fall items will be moved into the front area of the Thrift Shop itself this next week, and the new building will next be featuring the Christmas Shop — everything Christmas. It will take a week or so to put all the items out so be sure to keep checking on the

progress. Also, speaking of progress, plans have been finalized, the storage building at the rear of the Thrift Shop has been moved and everything is in readiness to put a doorway in that will allow patrons to go through to the new building from inside the current Thrift Shop instead of having to leave and re-enter from outside. That will be very nice, especially with the cold weather coming. I for one can’t wait to see everything the Christmas Shop will house. I got a sneak peek in the back the other day — unbelievable and beautiful — I’m excited! Tomorrow is the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. Our volunteers have been so dedicated. Some have been helping for more than 30 years. The board wants all the volunteers to know just how much their countless hours of sorting, tagging, hanging and rearranging have meant. We hope everyone enjoys this time of fellowship, fun and our treat to dinner. We are so blessed to have you in our lives. If you’d like to be a volunteer in any capacity, please call the Thrift Shop at 419692-2942. We need morning sorters as well as shopping hours cashiers and baggers. I recently heard someone say they can’t wait until they retire because that’s what she wants to do — volunteer in the community and at the

Thrift Shop. We’re waiting for you. The Lord was a servant, and God made us to be like Him. Do you walk as Jesus walked? For the avid hunters and outdoorsmen, all of our hunting gear and heavy flannels are now out on the floor. Be sure to check those out. It’s orange and camouflage season. At the board meeting, it was decided to hold some surprise sales in the various departments. Make sure you stop in often to take advantage of those special sales. I would try to let you know when exactly each sale is but even I don’t know. It’s a surprise — it’s fun — so go often. We look forward to seeing you. Get your sweaters, suits and sparkly holiday attire. Boots, coats, mittens, scarves and gloves for playing outdoors are ready for your shopping pleasure. With September over and the much cooler nights, we can only surmise what’s coming. It’s that four letter word that begins with “S”. Yikes! First, though, let’s enjoy the fall colors, sounds and smells of Fall and the harvest. I’m thinking pumpkin pie, cookies or cake would make the house smell just great. Or, if you’re not into baking, stop in the Thrift Shop and get a pumpkin spice candle — we have those (and it’s not near the work). Until the next time, that’s this month’s report.

Aroused Wildcats punish Thunderbirds Jays score late to
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Lima Central Catholic is no longer a member of the Northwest Conference but that didn’t matter to an aroused Jefferson gridiron squad Friday night. The Wildcats used excellent offensive balance and a defense that took away the coveted big plays that the Thunderbirds have lived on, grabbing a crucial 35-19 victory to solidify their number 2 spot in the Region 22 rankings. “We viewed this as a playoff game; LCC was and is a playoff-caliber team that we could see again this year. We have a happy group of kids right now; this was a big win for us, even though it’s not a conference game,” Jefferson coach Bub Lindeman said. “We knew coming in we’d have to be physical with them from the start. We didn’t want to let them get off quickly, especially in the first and third quarters. We didn’t give them a lot of the big plays they have been known for this year.” Though the Wildcats (5-0) didn’t score on their first possession, they established the passing game in the first half. After giving up a first down on the Thunderbirds’ (3-2) first drive, Tyler Mox returned the punt 25 yards to set the Red and White offense up at midfield. Senior Austin Jettinghoff (16-of-30 passing, 197 yards) threw for 11 yards to Ross Thompson (7 grabs, 112 yards). Then senior tailback Zavier Buzard (29 totes, 216 yards, 4 scores) took a counter off right guard, broke an arm tackle at the line and was gone to paydirt. Kurt Wollenhaupt delivered the extra point for a 7-0 edge with 8:00 left in the opening period. “We wanted to beat LCC badly. Our senior group has not lost to LCC as eighthgraders, freshmen or now as seniors,” Buzard noted. “I have to give it to the line tonight, as it has been all year. They have opened up holes all year. We Like to keep pounding on people all year; that’s why we condition so much during the week.” By LARRY HEIING DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com



knock off Rockets
ANNA — The St. John’s football team faced a couple of large tasks Friday night when they traveled to Anna for a Midwest Athletic Conference showdown. The first task at hand was how to match up with Anna’s size on the line. The Blue Jays lost one of their senior players, Nathan Schroeder, due to injury sustained in practice Thursday night. This left Coach Todd Schulte and his staff scrambling at the last minute to fill the void on both sides of the ball. The other task for the Jays was evident on their first drive. Coach Schulte said all week that St. John’s has to quit “fighting themselves” as well as the opponent. After a 35-yard opening kickoff return by Tyler Jettinghoff to the Anna 48 yard line, the beating of themselves began again. On the first play, Nick Martz’s pitch back to Jettinghoff was fumbled for a 12-yard loss. Then another fumble was recovered by Anna’s Ryan Counts at the 29. The Blue Jay defense rose to the occasion after allowing Anna to reach the 11, forcing a missed field goal attempt by Shaun Wenrick that was wide left. The Jays took over at 20 with 6:45 remaining in the first quarter. Finally after four games, the moment St. John’s coaching staff was waiting for happened as they put an 80-yard scoring drive together. The drive started with a couple of nice runs by Jettinghoff. A new play inserted this week was Jettinghoff setting up in the Wildcat formation and handing the ball off to Luke MacLennan for a first down at the 36. After a Martz fumble, the junior quarterback completed a swing pass to Jettinghoff for a 10-yard gain. Martz had another 10-yard keeper. After a couple of short runs by Jettinghoff and Martz and an incomplete pass, Jettinghoff took off on a 17-yard run down to the Anna 17. Another Wildcat formation was good for a 4-yard gain. Jettinghoff scored with 1:02 left in the first quarter on a 13-yard run. Ben Wrasman’s PAT was good for 7-0 Blue Jay lead.


Bulldogs outlast Cougars in WBL clash
Sean LaFontaine DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com ELIDA – The Van Wert Cougars played their closest game of the season Friday night in Elida but in the end the Bulldogs outlasted the Cougars in a Western Buckeye League shootout 41-34. The two teams traded touchdowns the entire game. Elida drew first blood on their opening drive of the game but the Cougars responded with a drive of their own capped off by a touchdown pass from Colin Smith to Terrence Branson. Gavin Gardner added the extra point to tie the game at 7. Early in the second quarter with the score 13-7, the Cougars took the lead on a one-yard run by Smith. A 44-yard pass from Smith to senior Michael Smelser highlighted the drive. Gardner’s extra point gave Van Wert the 14-13 lead with 8:30 left in the first half. It only took Elida four plays to answer the Cougars score. The Bulldogs took back the lead on a 69-yard touchdown pass from Clark Etzler to Avery Sumpter. The extra point by Etzler made the score 20-14 in favor of the Bulldogs. Elida further opened their lead after Smith threw an interception on the following Van Wert possession. Elida took advantage of the good field position and capped off the touchdown drive with an 8-yard pass from Etzler to Christian Moran. The extra point was added, leaving the score at 27-14. Van Wert again responded, this time Smith found Branson for a 28-yard touchdown pass with 1:57 remaining in the half. The extra point made it 27-21, which stayed the score at halftime. The teams continued to go back-and-fourth in the third quarter. Van Wert, down 41-27, was driving as the teams entered the fourth quarter. The Cougars capped off a 12-play drive that ate up just over six minutes of game time with a 1-yard touchdown run by Branson. The touchdown helped the Cougars pull within seven. Van Wert was finally able to get the defensive stop they had been looking for most of the game. The Cougars got the ball back with 5:11 left to play in the game. After Van Wert gained 24 yards on three straight run played, their drive came to a screeching halt. A 4-yard loss on first down, a run for no gain on second down and two straight incompletions forced the Cougars to turn the ball back over to the Bulldogs. Just when it looked like Elida was going to be able to run out the clock, the Bulldogs decided to put the ball in the air and defensive back Smelser was able to come up with a huge intercetipon for the Cougars. The pick gave Van Wert one last shot with 1:27 left to play in the game. Smith completed a second-down pass to Smelser for a 17-yard gain; two plays later, Smith found Branson for a 22-yard gain taking the Cougars all the way down to the Bulldog 44-yard line. After a 4-yard run by Smith and a completion from Smith to Smelser for six yards, the Cougers were down to the Elida 34-yard line with 33 seconds to play and two time outs remaining but that is as far as the Cougars got. On the very next play, Bulldog defensive back Etzler picked off a throw from Smith to seal the game and give Elida the 41-34 victory. The Cougars had their best offensive outing of the year, led by Smith who was 23-44 for 372 yards with three touchdowns and three

Tussing led the Cougar rushing attack with 16 rushed for 62 yards. Even though the Cougars came up short, Van Wert head coach Keith Recker was pleased with his teams’ performance. “We came in knowing we were going to have to throw the ball,” said Recker. “We thought there were going to be a few things there and there were and we did a good job of adjust when they adjusted. I thought this is the best we have played offensively since I’ve been here.” With the victory, the Bulldogs move to 3-2 overall and 2-2 in the Western Buckeye League. The loss drops the Cougars to 0-5 overall and 0-4 in the WBL.

Welcome to the Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report. Inland Lakes and Rivers CENTRAL OHIO Kokosing Lake (Knox County) - This lake of 149 acres in Knox County is limited to outboard motors of 10 horsepower or less. Largemouth bass are being caught around shoreline cover and along the dam using spinner baits and tubes. Bluegills are in shallow areas, try wax worms or night crawlers under a bobber. As water temperatures decrease crappies will move to shallower water. Use minnows or crappie jigs fished under a slip bobber around cover or the old creek channel for best results. Channel catfish can be caught on chicken livers, shrimp, or night crawlers fished on the bottom. Madison Lake (Madison County) - Crappies are the target fish in this 104-acre lake west of Columbus. Use minnows and a bobber around woody cover especially in the northern half of the lake to catch fish over nine inches and up to 13 inches long. Largemouth bass are being caught around shoreline cover and in concentrations of shad. Catfish can be caught using shrimp and chicken livers fished on the bottom. Lake is restricted to use of electric motors only. NORTHWEST OHIO Beaver Creek Reservoir (Seneca County) - The reservoir is located at the intersection of Township Road 196 and County Road 34 in the northeastern part of the county. Boat anglers have been catching nice sized yellow perch and crappie fishing near the bottom using minnows and shiners. Sunfish have been biting as well. Anglers have been using redworms fished under a slip bobber near the bottom. A boat ramp is located on the east side of the reservoir. Boats are limited to electric motors. Lake McKarns (Williams County) - Lake McKarns is located on the St. Joseph Wildlife Area, south of Montpelier on County Road J and west of County Road 10. The lake is 70 acres in size and right now is a good time to try for some largemouth bass. Try fishing along the edges, particularly in the southwest area of the lake. Anglers should try using top water

Fish Ohio

lures fished along the structure edges. There is a daily bass limit of 3 fish, in which only 2 fish less than 14 inches and 1 fish greater or equal to 20 inches may be kept. The lake features a boat ramp and boats are limited to 10 horsepower engines. NORTHEAST OHIO Cuyahoga River (Cuyahoga, Geauga, Portage, and Summit counties) - With autumn upon us, fishing for northern pike is picking up in the Cuyahoga River! Consistently producing regions of the river include the Fuller Park area in Kent, Rt. 303 bridge area near Shalersville, and the area in and around Mantua. Remember to obtain written permission to wadefish on private property. As fall gets into full swing and water temperatures drop, pike begin their fall feeding frenzy putting away energy reserves for both winter survival and their early spring spawn. Try fishing with large baits and lures that mimic prey fish such as shad, suckers, and chubs. Examples include larger crank baits, jerkbaits, swimbaits, lipless crankbaits, and large spinners. The use of a small leader will minimize the chances of a pike biting off your line. Don’t miss the thrill of catching this large, feisty, toothy fish while wading along the scenic Cuyahoga River this fall! West Branch Reservoir (Portage County) - Some major bonus action is taking place for walleye anglers out at West Branch the last couple of weeks. While trolling for walleye, angler’s rods are being pummeled by some large muskies. This recent bump in activity could provide adrenaline seekers a chance at quite a rush. To specifically target muskies try trolling cranks, possibly downsizing to match YOY shad, and running bait in the prop wash. If muskie fishing is too much heart pumping action for you, you can try and find the fall crappie bite. Crappie are starting to work in shallower. Must schools are still being found suspended around structure or contour breaks. Small jigs tipped with a minnow have been the way to go lately.

Kyle Busch takes aim on Kenseth for points lead
By DAN GELSTON Associated Press DOVER, Del. — Kyle Busch would take a winless Chase if it pays off with a championship. At 28, Busch is on a mission to win the Cup championship that would truly stamp him as one of the sport’s greats. He already has a resume few in the garage can match. Busch wins races in all three national NASCAR series like no other driver, including a whopping 18 this season. But all those checkered flags haven’t helped him win a championship. Busch has finished higher than 10th only once in the last five seasons and he’s never been better than fifth (2007) in the final standings. He lost out to Jeff Gordon for the final Chase spot last season at Richmond. Busch has put those past disappointments behind him with a sizzling start to this season’s Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship. Busch is 2 for 2 in runner-up finishes at Chicagoland in the opener and last week at New Hampshire. While Busch said he doesn’t pay attention to the standings, he knows his pair of seconds is good enough to put him in second place. Problem is, the driver in front of him hasn’t been in the mood to lose. Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Matt Kenseth leads the standings after storming his way to the Chase lead with wins the last two weeks to boost his series-best total to seven. Busch and 5-time champion Jimmie Johnson are the only drivers truly threatening Kenseth for the lead as the Chase shifts to Dover for Sunday’s race. See NASCAR, page 7

Pirates beat Reds 4-1 for leg up to host wild card
By JOE KAY Associated Press CINCINNATI — Marlon Byrd had three hits and Pedro Alvarez hit a 2-run homer high off the batter’s eye on Friday night, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates over the Cincinnati Reds 4-1 in a series that will decide the NL wild-card game host. Both teams clinched postseason berths this week. The Pirates’ chances of winning the NL Central ended later Friday night when St. Louis beat the Cubs 7-0 to clinch the title. So now it comes down to who gets to host the wild-card playoff next Tuesday night and the Pirates are one win away from taking it to PNC Park. Byrd and Alvarez provided all of the Pirates’ runs off Homer Bailey (11-12), who is struggling with his control heading into the postseason. A.J. Burnett (10-11) handled the Reds’ slumping lineup, allowing Todd Frazier’s homer and five hits overall in eight innings. Jason Grilli gave up a hit in the ninth while getting his 33rd save in 35 chances. Cincinnati has lost three straight and scored one run in the last 22 innings. The bruising, tight-as-could-be series has gone up and down the Ohio River all summer long with neither team able to get much advantage. The Pirates lead the series 9-8. Fourteen of

the 17 games have been decided by three runs or less. Batters have been plunked 26 times during the season series, most in the majors this year. It’s the biggest series between them since 1990, when the Reds beat Barry Bonds and the Pirates to reach the World Series, where they swept Oakland for their last title. The Pirates got the early advantage in this decisive series by beating Bailey, who threw the first of his two no-hitters at PNC Park on Sept. 28 last year. Since then, he’s failed to beat the Pirates in four starts, going 0-3. Control has been a problem lately. He helped the Pirates load the bases in the third on a hit batter and a pair of walks, and Byrd — an August trade acquisition from the Mets — singled through the hole at shortstop for a 2-0 lead. Byrd doubled off the top of the wall in center field to open the sixth and Alvarez hit his 35th homer high off the batter’s eye for a 4-1 lead that ended Bailey’s outing. He gave up four runs, four hits, four walks, hit two batters and threw a wild pitch. Burnett handled Cincinnati’s slumping lineup, retiring the last 10 batters he faced. Frazier hit his 19th homer off the screen on the left-field foul pole in the fourth, ending Cincinnati’s streak of 16 scoreless innings. Joey Votto singled twice, surpassing Pete Rose’s club record of reaching base 311 times in a season.

The Herald — 7

Most of us did better last week. The best of us was that trend-setter, regular Bob Weber, who went 9-3 (a perfect 6-0 in the college ranks, 3-3 in the pros) — I’m going to get him! His record is now 26-10 (14-4 and 12-6). Regular Dave Boninsegna and Guest Picker Dave Ditto both went 8-4 and both the same way — 5-1 and 3-3. Mr. B’s overall mark is 18-18 (9-9, 9-9). Me, myself and I (it’s crowded in here!) went 7-5 (5-1, 2-4) to improve — if you can call it that! — to 19-17 (10-8, 9-9). The other GP, Frank German, was 4-8 (3-3, 1-5). The GPs mark is now 38-33 (18-17, 20-16). Frank is back for a return engagement. Dave Ditto won’t be due to a glitch. Here are the Games: College: LSU at Georgia; Oklahoma at Notre Dame; Ole Miss at Alabama; Wisconsin at Ohio State; Iowa at Minnesota; Miami, Fla. at South Florida. NFL: Cincinnati at Cleveland; Miami at New Orleans (Monday); Chicago at Detroit; Pittsburgh vs. Minnesota at London; New England at Atlanta; Dallas at San Diego. JIM METCALFE COLLEGE GEORGIA: LSU is very talented but UGA — also very talented — seems to finally be able to win a big matchup. Being at home gives them a slight edge. OKLAHOMA: Irish have struggled against lesser foes the last two weeks. Sooners have been under the radar. OU emerges in South Bend. ALABAMA: Tide may not be the defensive team they have been but offense makes up for it. Still, it won’t be easy against vastly improve Ole Miss. OHIO STATE: Buckeyes get Miller back but Guiton gives Badgers something else to worry about. Badgers won’t run for 350 yards this week. MINNESOTA: This game should be close. Give the edge and the win to home team; it’s that close. MIAMI, FLA.: I almost went with home team but Hurricanes may finally be over the NCAA Blues. PRO: CINCINNATI: Bengals defense against third-teamer Hoyer. Enough written. NEW ORLEANS: Dolphins are for real. Saints are at home. Brees trumps Tannehill. DETROIT: Lions might have the defense to slow down surprisingly explosive Bears. PITTSBURGH: Ponder vs. Blitzburgh in London. Makes you “think”, eh? Ouch! ATLANTA: Falcons built for the Dome. Patriots get first loss of 2013. DALLAS: I’m not quite sold on Chargers — or Cowboys, for that matter. Romo makes the difference. ——D A V E BONINSEGNA Georgia: The Georgia Bulldogs will become the fourth team in the BCS era to play three top 10 teams in the first four games as they face sixth-ranked LSU. This one scares me for Georgia but I am still going to take Georgia. Oklahoma: Oklahoma is looking for redemption after the Irish beat the Sooners in a 30-13 game last year. The Sooners get their revenge and get a win. Ole Miss at Alabama;: Alabama handled Ole Miss rather handily last season and should have no problem on Saturday, either. Ohio State: First big test for the Buckeyes this season. Braxton Miller is back and will be ready for a win against the Badgers. Minnesota: Iowa has speed and will give the home team a challenge; but I am going to stick with the hosts to get the win. Miami, Fla.: This simply should be no contest for Miami. NFL: Cincinnati: Cleveland limped to their first win last week, while the Bengals looked very good. Momentum carries over but the Bengals beat the Browns. New Orleans: Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins are cautiously optimistic about their next test. Not sure that lightning can strike again for the Dolphins; I am going with the Saints. Chicago: This could be one of the better games of the weekend and I am going to go with the Bears to grab that 4-0 start. Minnesota: Both teams remained winless last Sunday. Fact is Minnesota looked worse but I am going on a hunch; I am taking the Vikings to get win number one. New England: Both teams are dealing with injuries on offense and red-zone issues but one is still finding a way to win. I just think that the Pats always seem to find a way. Dallas: Both teams are a mishmash of what’s going to happen now. I am going to give the win to the Cowboys on the basis that the Chargers can’t defend the rush. ———— BOB WEBER LSU – Tigers QB Zach Mettenberger is having a great year so far and has talented Jeremy Hill in his backfield and elusive wide receivers in Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. OKLAHOMA – I’m going with the Sooners because this game has been circled on its calendar since last year’s loss in Norman. ALABAMA – Ask a young, developing team to come to Tuscaloosa and uproot Alabama is asking a bit too much no matter the level of talent that the Rebels have. OHIO STATE – The Badgers are averaging a patently absurd 350 rushing yards per game; however, there’s a lot of talent on the other side of the field. I’m going with the BUCKS and Urban Meyer MINNESOTA – Going with the Gophers because the game is at home. That’s a poor reason but I know little about either team. MIAMI, FLORIDA – The “U” is back and Miami Coach Al Golden will rely on his nationally highranked defense to lead the way in this one. NFL: CINCINNATI – OK, Browns’ fans settle back down – you’re not going to the Super Bowl with Brian Hoyer as your quarterback. The visiting Bengals will take care of business by beating the Browns for the eighth time in 10 meetings. NEW ORLEANS – Ryan Tannehill is a rising star for the Dolphins; however, the Saints have Drew Brees. Also, the game is a home contest for the Saints and that place will be going crazy for Monday Night Football. DETROIT – Chicago is undefeated through three games thanks to the ball-hawking approach of its defense. However, I believe the Lions, behind Megatron-Calvin Johnson and the return of Reggie Bush, will put the first loss on the Bears. PITTSBURGH – Seriously – I’m tired of sleeping on the couch and watching my wife in shock with regards to how bad the Steelers are – win this one – PLEASE! ATLANTA – If the Patriots had all their weapons back for Tom Brady it would be a no-brainer. However, with no Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola out there, I believe the Falcons will be able to outscore the Patriots in this one. COWBOYS – The Cowboys are starting to click on both sides of the ball. DeMarcus Ware will put big time pressure on Phillip Rivers all day and DeMarco Murray is developing into a stud at running back. ——FRANK GERMAN Here we are the last weekend of games in September already. WHY does football have to go by so quickly. Well here we go. LSU: ou have to go with LSU. They have been tough for several years and are again. You have to pick them until they lose. Notre Dame: I will not make this mistake again. Notre Dame since they are at home; enough said. Alabama: No-brainer here; the defending National Champions, of course. Ohio State: Do you really think I am going to pick the Badgers. NOT. Buckeyes at home the winners. Iowa: I am going with Iowa’s high-powered offense in this one. The Gophers will have a homecoming loss. Miami, Florida: Miami will prevail in this one. Cincinnati: The battle of Ohio. I think the Bengals defense will claim the day, pushing them over the top. NFL: New Orleans: At the Super Dome. The battle of the unbeatens goes to the Saints. They have more proven players than Miami. Detroit: This is a toss-up. I go with the home team in the pinch. Minnesota: I am going to go with the Vikings on this one but you never know with the jet lag. In the U.S., I would go with the Vikings anyway. Atlanta: The Falcons are my choice. They have been playing better then the Patriots. Dallas: I will go with Dallas because they have the better team going into this game. Sorry for picking your team, Jim (Editor’s Note: We’re DOOMED!!!).

Kenseth holds a 14-point lead over Busch and an 18-point edge over Johnson. While certainly not out of it with eight races remaining, Carl Edwards is 36 points back of Kenseth in fourth. Busch is proud he can be part of the 1-2 combination for JGR and Toyota. He just wouldn’t mind flipping the order. “It may take a couple of wins in this deal to win it,” Busch said Friday. “I’ve also felt all along that if you finish second every Chase race, then you could have a really good shot at winning a championship that way. I would certainly take that over a Chase win and then following that up with a DNF.” Busch has four Cup victories this season, including two in the last seven. Has last failure to finish came in May at Charlotte. Tony Stewart in 2005 is the only driver to win a championship without winning a Chase race. JGR, with Busch, in the past has dominated the regular season, but dropped off considerably once the Chase began. Now they’ve carried their success into the Chase and are a credible 1-2 threat to give Toyota its first Sprint Cup title. “I really feel like Matt and the relationship that he and his crew chief have and what they have been able to bring to the table has helped elevate Joe Gibbs to the next level,” Johnson said. “The experience that Matt brings in, the smarts, the knowledge, the consistent driving that is a nice kind of rock within that organization that without a doubt has helped them.” Busch is nipping at Kenseth and said the 20 “lucked into one” at Chicagoland. He blamed a poor restart for costing him at New Hampshire.

Anna returned the kickoff to the 27 but a false start on the Rockets backed the ball up to the 15 on the next play. Josh Robinson hooked up with Nick Ihle for a 38-yard gain. Christian Williams added a 30-yard run to the Blue Jay 10. After two short runs, Robinson threw for a 2-yard touchdown with 11:10 in the second quarter to make the score 7-7. The teams traded possessions. Anna started its next drive at the 19. Robinson threw for 38 yards and 16 yards to the St. John’s 24. After three straight runs, Robinson took it in for a TD for a 14-7 lead. Evan Hays returned the kickoff 24 yards to the 44. A Martz pass to MacLennan was good for a 23 yards. Runs by MacLennan and Austin Heiing drove the ball to the 11. MacLennan then finished off the drive with a 1-yard run to make the score 14-14 at the half. Anna fumbled the second-half kickoff, with Andy May’s recovery by putting the Jays at the host 29. A Jettinghoff run combined with a facemask penalty put the ball at the 11, Martz ran for four, another facemask penalty after a Jettinghoff run gave St. John’s a first down. Jettinghoff scored on a 2-yard run and Wrasman’s kick made it 21-14 with 10:26 left in the third. Matthew Bruce, replacing the injured Williamson at running back for Anna, led a drive that was capped off by a Robinson 5-yard TD run to tie the score at 21. The Blue Jays took over at the 36, following a 27-yard Jettinghoff kickoff return. The Jays scored in one play: with wideouts on the right side, Martz found MacLennan on the left which was good for a 64-yard touchdown. The extra point was no good, making the score 27-21 with 3:33 remaining in the third. After Jason Wittler recovered an Anna fumble at the 46, the Jays next drive stalled at the 8. Anna took over and St


John’s got the ball right back on a pass interception by Jordan Mohler. Following a run by MacLennan, Martz scored on a 5-yard run nullified by a holding call. Anna’s defense held and Wrasman’s field goal was wide left with 8:43 to go. Anna then went on an 80-yard scoring drive, capped off by a pass to Ihle. The point-after attempt was no good leaving the scored tied at 27. Anna’s short kick was recoverd at the 48 by Buddy Jackson. Jettinghoff had a 5-yard gain and a Martz shotgun pass to MacLennan was good for a first down at the 39. Jettinghoff ran 12 yards for another first down and led to a time-clock dispute, finally reset to 28.6 seconds. Martz completed a 12-yarder to MacLennan to the 16 and Jettinghoff secured a Blue Jay victory, scoring with eight seconds left in the game and Wrasman’s good kick made the final score 34-27. After the game, Schulte commented that he was proud of the effort shown by his team: “We finally got the breaks mainly because of what we created.” St. John’s hosts top-ranked Marion Local at home Oct. 5, while Anna travels to Minster Friday.

The Wildcats forced a T-Bird punt and Mox made an outstanding 53-yard return to the house that was nullified by an illegal block. The ’Cats did start at the guest 43 but a key holding call stymied the drive and they had to punt. Jordan McCann set up the next drive on a fumble recovery at the LCC 42 and ended it in the end zone on the seventh play. With Buzard out of the game due to losing his helmet, McCann burrowed up the gut from the 1. Wollenhaupt made it a 21-13 halftime score with 41 ticks on the board. After forcing a 3-and-out on LCC’s first series of the second half, the hosts turned to the running of Buzard on a 10-play, 85-yard sequence. Buzard, who ran six times for 62 yards, finished it with a 7-yard sweep over the left side, veering toward the pylon and the six with 5:36 showing in the third. Wollenhaupt made it 28-13. The Thunderbirds replied with a 10-play, 68-yarder. With Stolly finding senior speedster Mykale Rogers (5 catches, 57 yards) four times for 41 yards on the drive, Lasenby ended it with a 1-yard run inside left guard with 1:40 to go in the third. Stolly hit the right upright on the kick to keep it a 28-19 score. After forcing a 3-and-out, LCC took over at the 47 and reached the Delphos 36 in three plays. However, a key sack of Stolly by Thompson short-circuited the drive and the guests turned the ball over on downs at the 35. Jefferson moved to the LCC 28 on their next drive, keyed by a 30-yard connection from Jettinghoff to Thompson. However, it ended on downs there. Forcing a 3-and-out, Stolly, back in punt formation, tried to convert a fourth-and-6 at the 32 but was dropped by Dalton Hicks at the 31. The Wildcats put it away with a 5-play drive. At the 3, Buzard took a handoff off left guard and veered to the pylon with 5:43 to go. Wollenhaupt tacked on the final tally. “We came out wanted to throw the ball; we know LCC’s coaches get the same tapes we do and they would focus on the running game defensively, so we wanted to keep them off-balance,” Lindeman added. “Austin

doesn’t always get the stats but he really runs the offense well. Our fofensive line did a tremendous job of controlling the line of scrimmage from the start, either in protecting Austin or opening holes for Zavier. He does a great job of reading the holes.” Jefferson hosts Crestview Friday night.

SOUTHEAST OHIO Muskingum River (Morgan County) - Carp and catfish are most active right now. For carp, try casting dough balls or corn. Catfish prefer night crawlers, chicken liver, or cut bait fished on the bottom in the current. Use a heavy sinker to hold the bait on bottom. Saugeye fishing should be picking up. Use a variety of jigs and concentrate effort below any of the 10 lock and dams located between Dresden and Marietta. Hocking River (Athens and Hocking County) - The stretch of river by White’s Mill in the Athens area is always a popular and usually successful spot for local anglers. Try casting Rebel craws or other artificial soft craws in the deeper pools of the river for smallmouth bass. The old train station in Nelsonville, Falls Mill and Kachelmacher Park in Logan are all popular spots for smallie anglers. Concentrate your fishing in high velocity current, where woody structure is present in more than 20 inches of water. Float shallow diving minnow imitation lures, or use white and chartreuse twister-tails on 1/8 to 1/4 ounce jigs. SOUTHWEST OHIO Acton Lake (Preble County) Channel catfish are biting on creek chubs or night crawlers fished along the bottom or between eight to 19 feet deep during the late evening or early morning hours. Fishing for channel catfish is productive anywhere in the lake. Bluegills are being caught by anglers using wax worms or night crawlers as bait. Bluegill fishing is bountiful along the banks. Saugeye are active in this lake and are currently being caught by anglers using night

crawlers, bass minnows, or jigs as bait. Fish the bait by trolling it through in water that is eight to 10 feet deep. East Fork (Clermont County) Crappies are being caught by anglers using wax worms, tube jigs, or medium to large sized minnows tipped on chartreuse jigs as bait. Fish the bait six to eight inches deep or 16-20 feet deep. Channel catfish are being caught by anglers fishing tightline at night using night crawlers, large minnows, or chicken liver as bait. Fishing is best in water between eight to 20 feet deep. Bluegill are hitting on wax worms or redworms. Keep the bait under a bobber and about two to three feet deep. Cast anywhere around the docks, standing wood, or downed trees. Largemouth bass are being caught by anglers using six-inch plastic worms, spinner baits, or deep diving (six to 10 feet) crankbaits colored shad. OHIO RIVER Clermont, Brown and Adams Counties -Try fishing the embankments, near stream confluences, and near warmwater discharges. Spinner baits, jig/pork combinations, and crankbaits are good lures to try. Warmwater discharges and stream confluences as well as the dam tailwaters are good areas to fish for sauger try using twister tail jigs and minnows. Sauger and hybrid striped bass have also been caught on big creek chubs or any deep-diving bait that resemble minnows. For hybrid striped bass and channel catfish stay in any of the tailwaters. Channel cats are being caught on cut bait, live shad, chicken livers and worms. Flathead catfish have been hitting cut baits, chicken liver, and night crawlers fished on the bottom. For smallmouth bass try tube baits or crankbaits. Greenup Dam (Scioto County) -

Recent surveys showed good numbers of smallmouth bass. While not a traditional target fish in this area, they can provide a different opportunity for the adventurous angler. Target the large rock riprap along the Ohio shore with a crankbait, swimbait, or lead-head jig with a twister. Fishing for blue catfish has been successful in this area, with catches up to 30 pounds reported in previous years. Live skipjack has generally been the preferred bait, and don’t be afraid to use one up to 12 inches in size. Try using a slip rig or a 3-way rig fished off the bottom. Channel catfish can be caught by the same method. LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is 6 fish per angler. The minimum size limit for walleye is 15 inches. The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. The trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish with a minimum size limit of 12 inches. The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit is 5 fish per angler with a 14-inch minimum size limit. Western Basin Walleye fishing effort has dropped recently and there have been very few reports from the western basin. As temperatures drop expect fishing to improve as migratory walleye return to the islands and also nearshore areas. Trolling crankbaits behind planer boards is a popular method for catching fall walleye. Yellow perch fishing was fair over the past week. The best areas have been West Sister Island, “C” can of the Camp Perry firing range, West Reef

and Northwest Reef (W of North Bass Island), W of Green and Rattlesnake islands, 1 mile SW of Kelleys Island, and S of Kelleys Island Shoal. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Largemouth bass fishing continues to be good in harbors and nearshore areas around Catawba and Marblehead, and also in Sandusky Bay. Central Basin Walleye fishing continues to be excellent in 62-72 feet of water NE of Ashtabula and in 68-72 feet of water N of Conneaut. Anglers are trolling wire line with white, pink, blue, yellow, orange, green and red stick baits. Yellow perch fishing has been fair at the S end of the sandbar between Vermilion and Lorain. Excellent fishing was reported in 42 feet of water N of Rocky River, in 44 feet of water N of Gordon Park, in 42 feet of water NW of Fairport Harbor (south of the hump), in 45-52 feet of water N of Ashtabula and in 42-68 feet of water NE of Conneaut. Spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Shore fishing off the Cleveland area piers has been slow. Smallmouth and largemouth bass fishing has been good in 10-20 feet of water around harbor areas in Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula and Conneaut. Anglers are using soft-craws and leeches. White Bass fishing has been hit and miss off the E. 55th St and E 72nd St Piers in Cleveland and the short and long piers in Fairport Harbor. Evenings have been the best.

(Continued from page 1) Rife made the switch 22 years ago and has never looked back. That first jump with four wheels was over five cars but he said there was not a lot of thought that went into it back then. He watched someone else go over three cars and he said he turned to a friend and said, “I can do that.” His first show began in 1993 at the VanDel Drive-in where he successfully cleared five cars. As could be expected, that initial success was not always duplicated. Over the years Rife has also jumped pick-ups, semi-tractors and Harley Davidson motorcycles - and sometimes those performances ended badly. His worst crash was on a 112foot attempt over a mobile home. On the landing he broke both his legs, an arm, a collarbone and left himself unconscious for about 45 minutes. He has plans to complete that jump before he retires. He also said he would love to jump a pit filled with alligators as a tribute to Knievel’s shark jump attempt in 1977. As Rife continued to build up his shows and his notoriety, people outside the Van Wert area took notice. In 2007, he was asked to perform on the David Letterman Show in New York City where he would attempt to fly over six taxi cabs in the street outside the studio. For those in the Van Wert area who watched that night when the show aired, everything appeared to go great. Rife jumped the taxis, landed on the other side and then talked with Letterman. But that was only part of the


story. During the practice run in the afternoon, the cabs were spaced incorrectly and the show producers were not able to secure as much of a run-up as Rife normally used to build speed. The result was a jump that came up short, trashed his primary ATV, and re-broke a bone in his wrist. Rife completed the jump that evening on an ATV he had never had in the air. More importantly, to hold the broken bone in place, his crew taped a bent box wrench to his hand and forearm to hold together his wrist. In the past year, Rife’s daredevil career has taken two divergent paths - one that has a chance to make his career soar and another that reveals a different side of his personality. In January, Rife was approached by a production company that wanted to create a reality television show about daredevils. After several rounds of interviews, the producers chose Rife and three other performers - all motorcycle riders - to base the show upon. All this year, Rife has been followed by film crews as he has performed shows and he made one trip to New York City for green screen and voice-over work with more trips still to happen. A rough cut of the pilot has been created and will be delivered to the Discovery Channel for possible airing in December. Rife said he was surprised at the amount of work that went into the filming, including approximately 50 hours of shooting just for himself. When you consider there is most likely the same amount of film for the other

three performers, that leaves a lot of film on the cutting room floor. But from what he has seen of the rough cut, Rife thinks area people will like the show. “I have seen some of the footage and they make Van Wert look absolutely amazing,” he said. “We were tickled to death with it.” But at the same time this summer, Rife found out about a local boy, Luke Hoffman. Hoffman is 7 years-old and suffers from a recurring spinal condition that requires treatments making it necessary for him to relearn how to walk. Rife was struck by Hoffman’s courage and tenacity. “He has such a great outlook on things,” Rife said of Hoffman. “He was making a game out of relearning to walk again. Most adults would be feeling sorry for themselves.” Rife has been raising money at all of his shows throughout the year to help buy a wheelchair, rehabilitation equipment and defray the costs of traveling for treatments. Rife’s love of being a daredevil is just as strong now as it was more than 40 years ago when he pedaled up to his first ramp. Van Wert area residents will get another opportunity to see him perform at 6:30 p.m. today at Kernel Cooper’s Corn Maze on Mendon Road, just east of Van Wert. Rife will be attempting a jump over tractors - a new item on his list of obstacles - with his ATV. Just like anytime he attempts a new show, he is not quite sure what to expect but he hopes a big crowd will be there for all the excitement.

While the new enrollment period will soon allow all Ohioans to access quality, affordable health coverage, millions of people in our state are already benefiting from provisions in the health care law. For example, 97,000 young adults in Ohio are now able to stay on their parents’ insurance until their 26th birthday. We are also closing the ‘donut hole’ for seniors’ prescription drugs – saving Ohio seniors an average of $774 on their medication costs. More than 900,000 Ohioans have received free preventive care, and children are no longer being denied coverage for pre-existing conditions, like asthma, diabetes, and cancer. For millions across the Buckeye state, the new law will mean less worry and more money in their wallets. And for many Americans, the health insurance marketplace will lower premiums nearly 14 percent more than previously expected. There is still more work to be done to perfect our nation’s health care system. But on October 1, I will join millions of Ohioans as we take a step towards a future where worry and failed protections will soon become a thing of the past.

Young explained some of the earliest apples are picked in July and harvesting then progresses into August and September. “Cider is made from a combination of apples,” Young explained. “Typically, it’s the fruit that would not sell as a table fruit and might be small in size, have an odd shape, etc.” Young clarified that no apples are picked off the ground to use in the making of cider. When apples come into season, American pioneer nurseryman Johnny Appleseed [John Chapman] is at the forefront of many people’s minds. He

is the legendary man who spent 50 years growing apple trees and traveling throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Illinois and Indiana, planting seeds and propagating his precious trees around the country so that people could enjoy apples as they moved from eastern states to the west. “The Children’s Garden, located in Smiley Park in Van Wert, houses a start from an original Appleseed tree,” Young said. Young announced the 27th Annual Van Wert Apple Festival will be held at the fairgrounds from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. on Oct. 18 and from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Oct. 19.

The first wave of the disease occurred from March 1918 to August. While no one knows how it officially started, the first cases were reported in March 1918 at an Army camp at Fort Riley Kansas, where soldiers were in training. An outbreak started in Europe when these soldiers went overseas. An outbreak started in April on a ship carrying soldiers from the U.S. 15th Calvary. It rapidly spread to the French soldiers, then the British and even to the enemy, the Germans. It would eventually spread to North Africa, India, Japan, China, Phillipines, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Panama Canal, Russia, Hawaii, New Zealand and even remote Seward Peninsula of Alaska. The Italians called it sandfly fever; Franch — purlent bronchitis or the grippe; German — lightning catarrh or Flanders fever; and Japan — wrestlers fever. First reports were misleading as evidenced from a letter from a local soldier, W. J. Mowery to his brother, Eugene Mowery of Fort Wayne: Somewhere in France, June 9, 1918. “Will try to scribble a line or two in bed. It’s a good stunt if I can do so without spilling the ink, so here goes. I have been confined to quarters for two days with that new malady coming from Spain, called Spanish fever, and it is similar to la grippe, is very disagreeable, never fatal and seldom lasts over three days; so no doubt I will be on the job again tomorrow.” The second and most lethal of the disease began only weeks after the first wave, lasting until mid-November. Having mutated into a more deadlier form, it quickly took the life of the young and healthy first. Modern research, using the virus taken from bodies from the frozen dead, specifically those on the Seward Peninsula of Alaska, concluded the virus killed through a cytokine storm (overreaction of the body’s immune system). By mid-summer influenza was striking civilians in Copenhagan, Denmark, Switzerland and Norway. The Commonwealth Pier in Boston, launching pad for troops shipped overseas, reported flu cases of the second wave Aug. 27. The public ignored warnings from state health officials and continued with parades and war efforts supporting the troops, further exposing the disease to


the public. The prevalence of influenza in 26 states was announced by U.S. Surgeon General Blue. Many people believed the influenza outbreak was caused by Germany releasing a killer germ. Existence of the virus, which was little known, wouldn’t be recognized until the invention of the electron microscope. A side note of the anti-German sentiment in this area was the response of the public. Prominent Delphos leaders would confront those felt not to be patriotic enough and drag them to Main Street to salute or kiss the American flag. Those deemed “slackers” for not buying enough war stamps had their barns painted yellow. German books were burned in Ottawa. The Schumm School, owned by the German Evangelical Church, which still taught German classes, was blown up on Oct. 20. The serious situation in New England and more specially in Massachusetts, which has called for orders closing schools, churches and places of amusement was discussed by the public health authorities. Back in Ohio, the state health department called on all health officials in the state to cooperate in collecting information and in restricting the spread of the influenza, calling attention to the serious interference with war production. The October draft call was cancelled because so many were ill. On Sept. 29, The Herald reported “The remains of Grover H.

The seats for the room will be kept, and if the room is found unsatisfactory for use as a gym or if the pupils do not protect the property in a satisfactory manner, those seats will be replaced and the pupils denied the use as a gymnasium.
