Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869

Save lives ‘giving shoes the boot!’
Bring used and new shoes to St. Peter Lutheran Church 422 N. Pierce St. in Delphos and In Reach/ Out Reach and Capital University with Shoeman Water Projects will turn them into clean drinking water. Shoeman Water Projects picks up used and new shoes year-round from businesses, churches, schools and shoe drives and gives a second life to the shoes, selling them to exporters. The money from the sale of the shoes is used to purchase well drilling rigs, water purification systems,and other supplies to bring clean, fresh water to those in need. Used and new shoes — tied or rubber-banned into pairs — can be placed into the drop-off bin at the church.


Prepare for active tornado season
BY MIKE FORD mford@delphosherald.com Approximately one year ago, tornados tore apart the city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, killing dozens of its residents. Much more recently, tornados damaged southeast Michigan as abnormal weather conditions gave birth to a dangerous and slow-moving storm system. Because storms are especially unpredictable in light of an unusually-warm March, leaders here in the Buckeye State want residents to be aware and prepared for twisters. Sunday begins Ohio Severe Weather Awareness Week. One area weather specialist and emergency manager says there is still a lot of cold air north of the United States that will create a tumultuous spring tornado season. Van Wert County EMA Director Rick McCoy wants everyone who doesn’t have an emergency radio to get one because they have a setting permitting them to sound an alert even when they’re off. “NOAA weather radios are as important to severe weather as smoke alarms are to a fire. In a severe weather event, it’s most important for people to be informed that bad weather is approaching and the NOAA radios will tell you day or night. They will wake you up, so if you live in a place where you don’t hear the sirens, the allhazard radio could be crucial,” he said. “When you’re asleep, the television isn’t on, the regular radio isn’t on but NOAA radios are a 24-hour function and it may be the only thing that wakes you up and lets you know a storm is coming.” McCoy said, other than that, families need to put together kits of essentials such as non-perishable food, water, batteries, lighting devices, medicine and anything else they need in case of emergency. He also said communication to educate all family members and form a plan is necessary so everyone knows what to do and where to go. “Basements are the safest place; specifically, the center of the basement under something study like a table in case there’s a cave-in. If you don’t have a basement, get to the center of the house with as many interior walls

Delphos, Ohio between you and the exterior walls as possible and away from windows. The bathtub is also good — pull a rug or something over you to protect you from debris,” he said. McCoy said studies show mobile homes are the secondmost dangerous place to be. “The only place more dangerous than a mobile home during a tornado is standing outside in the path of the storm. If you live in a mobile home, plan ahead of time and know where to go. Don’t wait until the day of the storm. If See TORNADO, page 2

German students looking for host families
As in the past, cultural exchange students from Delphos’ sister city, Verle, Germany, are looking forward to spending the latter part of the year in Delphos, attending school, participating in extra-curricular activities and spending time with their host families. Ten students have expressed interest in visiting Delphos. Here are the letters they penned to prospective host families. They have been left as written to preserve their charm: or Spain. There we make many trips to different cities and visit some museums and churches. I have great pleasure to discover a different culture from a new country and I also fit in with their habits and what they eat. In Italy it’s easy for me because I can eat pizza and ice-cream just everywhere. But when we are home again, I really enjoy dad’s steak. I hope I can cook just as well as he can in the future! Unfortunately I am very forgetful and so I think I couldn’t remember the recipes. But my parents, friends and classmates also describe me as an open-minded, funny and aspiring person, who can integrate well into the community. I would be very happy if I will get a positive answer and you welcome me in your family. Best regards, Alicia Dear host family, One day at school, a young girl told my class that there is an opportunity to go to Delphos for 4 months. Everyone was very excited about it. But after a couple of weeks, most pupils of my class weren’t sure anymore if they would be brave enough to live in America for a longer time, except myself. Unfortunately I don’t know anything about your family yet, so I’m just going to tell you something about me and my life. At first I would like Elsner to introduce myself. My name is Celine Elsner and I am fourteen years old. I live with my parents and my brother in a district of Verl in Germany. My brother is called Viktor and he is 17 years old. Now, I am in grade 9 of the ‘Gymnasium Verl’. After I will have finished school in 3 years I would like to do anything with the languages English and French. In my free time I love to do something creative like playing piano or taking photos. But in the same manner I like to jog and play soccer. My brother plays in a soccer team, which is called FC Gütersloh and my Dad jogs almost every day. Our favorite German soccer team is the FC Bayern Munich.

Dear host family, My name is Alicia Hesse, I turned fifteen years old on November 7th and I am Catholic. I live with my dad, my mom and my little brother in a nice house with a small garden in Verl. My mother’s name is Birgit, she is 39 years old and works as a bank clerk and my father, Hesse whose name is Detlef, is 42 years old and is a freelance designer/engineer. Henrik, my little brother, is nine years old and in the third grade of the ‘Marienschule’. This is one of two elementary schools in Verl which I also went to. When I was eleven, I went to the ‘Gymnasium Verl’. Now I am in the ninth grade there and I really like to go to school. My favorite subjects are math, English and art. After high school I maybe want to go to college and become an architect. In my free time I like to play volleyball, swim and dance. Once a year my family goes skiing in Austria. This year we are going skiing at Christmas time and I’m really looking forward to it. My other hobbies are reading and listening to music. My favorite singers are Bruno Mars and Taio Cruz. If I don’t play volleyball or listen to music, I usually meet my friends. In the summer we eat ice-cream and go to the pool and in the winter we sometimes like to watch TV in the evening. On these evenings we often watch ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ or romance movies like ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and ‘Twilight’. By the way, I babysit and give private lessons. During the holidays my family likes to be at the North Sea, at the Baltic Sea, in Italy

A few years ago, our family took two cats in. They were called ‘Tiger’ and ‘Pauli’. They lived over two years with us in our house, but then they were gone and never came back. I love animals very much and I would not have a problem, if your family has got pets. When I meet my friends, we often go to the nearest town, Gütersloh and there, we go shopping or watch a movie in the cinema. That makes a lot of fun and I incidentally take a lot of pictures of my friends. I hope you got a small but good impression of me by reading this letter and I want to thank you very much if you would like to accommodate me. I hope you are interested in giving me a new home in Delphos next year and in helping me to live the ‘American way of live.’ I am really looking forward to spend time with you in the USA. Yours sincerely, Celine Elsner Dear host family, My name is Chiara Peine, I am fifteen years old and I join the 9th class of the ‘Gymnasium Verl’. The exchange from Verl to Delphos is a long lasting tradition and to be a part of this would be really nice. I believe America is so different in the opposite of Germany and this exchange would be a really big chance to get to know how you live. As I was younger I thought America is a continent so far away I could never get there. But then I heard from this exchange and the USA comes a little bit nearer to me. Here in Verl I live together Peine with my mum, my dad, my two brothers and my granddad in a house near the school. My family and my parents say I am a friendly, helpful, polite and funny person. Sometimes a little bit forgetful and lazy but they say it is almost OK. My favorite food is Pasta. Since I was a young girl I love it. In my leisure time I often meet my best friends Alicia, Paula, Isabel and Isabel or my neighbors Mirjam and Charlotte, who are also good See STUDENTS, page 3

Bacome ready to shine

Bacome BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com DELPHOS—St. John’s fifth grader Hayleigh Bacome, daughter of Jeff Bacome and

Shifawn Youngpeter, has been taking dance lessons for most of her life at Steppin’ Out Dance Center in Lima. Having performed in various competitions and recitals, along with the Nutcracker and University of Northwestern Ohio’s Holiday Spectacular, it wasn’t hard for Bacome to decide to audition for this year’s Ohio Has Talent. “My mom asked me if I wanted to do it and I said yes, so I tried out,” she said. “My mom is my instructor at Steppin’ Out and she’s also my choreographer. I’m doing a lyrical piece to the song ‘Lovely.’” Having danced for 10 years, it’s safe to say Bacome greatly enjoys the activity. “The best part about it is that I get to put my emotion in it and really feel it,” she said.

you live in a mobile home and there’s a tornado warning, get to a sturdy structure if you have time because a mobile home is worse than being in a car and a car isn’t good news either,” he said. “If you’re out driving and a tornado is bearing down on you, get into a ditch or under a bridge or culvert to protect yourself. However, if you’re miles away from it, drive out of it’s way. Most of our tornados move from southwest to northeast, so you want to drive east and then south,” he said. Though most West Central Ohio twisters are weaker than others, they can still kill, steal and destroy like the devil. An EF-0 tornado’s wind speed is 65-85 miles per hour. An EF-1 is 86-110; EF-2 is 111-135; an EF-3 is 136-165; an EF-4 has wind speeds of 166-200 mph and all tornados with wind speeds higher than 200 mph are designated as an EF-5. “The ones we usually have are EF-Os and EF-1s and that’s enough to rip the roof off a house and knock out outer walls but they won’t level a house like the EF-5s will,” he said. McCoy added that there is no “all-clear” sounding of outdoor sirens. When one hears a siren during inclement weather, it is important to turn on one’s NOAA radio or tune into area broadcast media for information. It’s also important to distinguish between an alert and a test. Delphos sirens are tested at approximately 12:15 each Saturday and will also sound during a statewide test at 9:50 a.m. Wednesday. Delphos sirens will sound with all Allen County sirens, which will be set off by EMA Director Russ Decker.

friends of mine. In summertime I often go with them to the ice cream parlor, do little trips to a park or meet at the swimming pool and in the wintertime we do ice skating, make sleepovers, movie nights or just meet and talk. When I do not meet my friends in my leisure time I play volleyball in a club, play flute in an orchestra or do Yoga. The orchestra where I am playing flute in made trips to England a few years ago. As I was younger my family and I went with them to England. I did not know much English vocabulary and I did not remind all but I know it was a really exciting trip. I learned a few new vocabularies and a lot about their life. For example that they have a big breakfast there with bacon, toast and eggs while we just eat bread with butter and cheese at home. I think that trip to England was really good and exciting and I hope I could experience how you live in America. I heard that the Americans are strict religious and go to church every week. Is that right? My whole family is namely catholic and we also go to church, but not every week. My mother often sings in a church, because she is a full member of a gospel choir. And so I am interesting to see how it would be to go to church in America. In January 2012 our form make internships in different companies. I do mine in a hospital in Gütersloh, a town nearby, because I cogitate about studying medicine after school. I suppose English is really needed for medicine and other branches. So a stay in America would be the best advantage for good chances of success. All in all I would gladly like to visit you in Delphos and join four month full of exciting experience together. I am looking forward to hear from you. Chiara Peine Dear host family, I am Dominik Kinner a 14 year old boy (birthday: May 10th, 1997) from Borgholzhausen, a small, rural town located near to Bielefeld in Germany. I grew up with my 12-year-old sister, my mum, a judge, and my dad, an electrical engineer. I have studied English for 6 years and speak it nearly fluently. In addition, I have studied French for 3 years. I want to study law and become an attorney. I am an active, open, curious, reliable and helpful boy. I enjoy socializing with others as well as sports and I am interested in a variety of topics. Because of my interest in solving disputes between other students I took part in a voluntary seminar on mediation. I learned several methods to help others in finding a solution to their conflicts. Currently, I am a tutor for the new students at school. I also work for school magazine “Etcetera”. With my friends and my family I do as much sports as possible. My hobbies are running (and other kinds of athletics), playing soccer with friends, and all kinds of sports. I am also interested in reading, (computer) science and connecting with new people at my age. I like playing the piano (for 6 years). I am a protestant Christ and had my confirmation this year, which I celebrated with my whole family (one grand grandma, two grandpas, one grandma, two uncles, one aunt, two cousins, my parents and my sister). My dad’s family is catholic, so I sometimes join him for catholic services. Every year I spend a part of the summer vacations with my parents in other countries in Europe. This summer we went to Mallorca, a Spanish island. I further spent a week in March with some other students in Slovenia. I think the travels from my early childhood on is one reason why I am so interested in discovering unknown countries like the United States, their cultures and in making friends there not just for the time of my stay there. I am open for the culture of the United States and am keen on discovering the everyday life in this country. I want to learn how to orient myself and communicate in a new environment. I also hope for experiences, that I will benefit from my whole life. That is why I would be very grateful if you made my stay in the United States possible. I hope to meet you in a few months over there in your great country! Kind regards, Dominik Kinner Dear host family,

In this letter I would like to introduce myself. My name is Jacqueline Mickenbecker but almost everyone calls me Jacki. I am 15 years old and I live in the little town Verl. There I live in a big house with my mother, my sister Heidi who is Dominik eleven years old and my dog Rocky. Next to our house there live my grandparents what I am very happy about. For three years my parents have been divorced but my dad lives in Verl, too. Every second weekend my sister and I stay at his house. I go to Gymnasium Verl where I go to class 9. My favourite subject is sports and I hate math as seen in my marks. Moreover there are about 1,000 pupils in my school and I know many of them. In the breaks I meet them and we talk together. Furthermore I want to pass my A level in three years and maybe I want to go to a university. While being in America I would like to see the school life there. I have many hobbies. The most important one is handball which I have been playing for five years. Three times a week I practise with my team TV VERL. In the weekend I usually have matches against other teams. We are a good team so we often win. My handball team is important for me because we are all friends and they are like a second family for me. But I would like to see the typical American sports for example football or baseball. I think I would be happy to see a match. In the rest of my free time I meet my friends. We have always fun together and when someone has got Jacqueline a problem Mickenbecker we help each other. With one of my friend Monique I sometimes sing, we also like to cook or bake something delicious. I have also three good other friends Tabea, Lara and Judit with who I have a trailer. Sometimes we are there to listen to music, relax and have lots of fun. Otherwise I like to go out with my dog and enjoy the nature. But the most important thing for me is my family. They support me and when someone has a problem another one has the solution. My mother, my sister and I have rebuilt the house of my grand-parents and my whole family helped us. Now I am very happy to live next to my grandparents because they are very friendly and I love them very much. My other grandparents, who I like very much, too live next to my dad. Besides when I have a handball match my father and my mother motivate me. That shows that they believe in me. I hope my letter is interesting for you. It would be very nice if you help me to make my dream comes true because I am very curious to live for four months with you together. I am sure that we will have a lot of fun. I hope to see you soon. Ýours, Jacqueline Mickenbecker Dear host family, I would really like if you granted me the chance to do an exchange to the USA for four months admit me to your family. A big personal interest of mine is to be granted the chance to visit an American high school and to get to know life not only in lessons but around the school, too. I am totally amazed of the American life and culture in general. Moreover, I am really fascinated of the fact that the most famous people are from America as the most popular songs are, too. I am from Bielefeld. My city is located in North RhineWestphalia and the amount of the population is about 300,000 people. Near to Bielefeld there is the small town Werther where I go to school. I visit the EGW since 2007. Together with my father Harald, my brother Julian and my little dog Cherry I live an usual German life. We are only three people left at home since my mother was diagnosed cancer in 2009. In the same year she died. Usually I am happy about going to school because this is the place where I regular-

ly see most of my friends. Many of them I do not see often in the afternoons because of my whole extracurricular activities: Two times a week I have ballet lessons, one time a week I have a Jazz and modern dance lesson and, finally, I play the flute for seven years. Last year I joined the orchestra of my school. Besides, I love it to cut short videos, which I upload to YouTube later on. The topic of my videos is mainly celebrities like Ariana Jill Wille G r a n d e , Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. I like going out shopping with my friends, reading some books. The last big one of my personal interests is nail polish and painting my nails. I think this underlines my creativity. I hope I was successful giving you a short insight into my life and myself. I would really enjoy if you give me the chance to do my exchange to Delphos. Your sincerely, Jill Wille Dear host family! I would like to thank you that you are considering to welcome an exchange student in your family and in your home. I would like to tell you about myself, my family and about my friends. I was born in Egypt where I lived and went to a German school till I was 10 years old. But then we had to travel to Germany to the state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, to Düsseldorf. Four years later we had to move again, this time to a small town called Werther near Bielefeld in the west of Germany, where my father was offered the post of the head of the thoracic surgery department in the town hospital. It is difficult to describe my own character by myself, so I asked my best friend Patrick to describe it for you. He said: “You are polite, sportive, you are sociable, but you are restless, too.” I like Patrick because he is always there for me when I need him and the other way round Jonas Boseila also. I go to the Evangelisches Gymnasium Werther (EGW). It’s a nice but also small school and just recently a wonderful building was added to it. The computers of EGW are up to date. I like mathematics and informatics but my favorite subject is sport. I do lots of sports and I care very much for a healthy diet. In the summer 2010 I got my sailing license in a summer camp. I love football. It is my favorite sport and I will die for it. I was also in the summer at the World Youth Cup in Sweden, the Gothia Cup, with my football team (BV Werther). There I met many people from different countries. I found it great to meet them and because of that I also want to visit the USA for meeting more people from a different culture. In the winter we also go skiing and snowboarding. At the weekends I go jogging and at the end I bring bread rolls from the bakery for my family. I love jogging in the morning, when nobody is on the street and I can be free. It is a nice feeling and I get my head free from everything. My day begins at 6:30 in the morning. Then I have school till 13:05 or 15:25. After school I must do my homework and learning. When I have finished, I can meet my friends, do sports or chill a little bit or hear music. My father is Egyptian, so our big family lives in Egypt and I cannot see them so often. I miss them really, especially my cousins Laila and Youssef. She is 14 and he is 13 years old. My mother is German. Her family isn’t as big as the family of my dad. I love my parents and they try to do everything to make me happy. I love my smaller sister. She is 13 years old. She is a nice sister and we play very often together. We have many smaller kids in my family. I like to play with them. We haven’t got a pet but my sister and I want one because we love animals. My aunt in Egypt has a dog called Leuco. When we are there I play really often with him. My other aunt in Germany has also a dog. I’m a happy boy with a wonderful family but I have also a lot of nice friends. When I meet my friends we have lots of fun and laugh together, hear music or play video games. We never think about school

when we meet. It is wonderful with my friends! We talk about secrets or about important things. If someone has problems we discuss them till we find a solution. It is every time a great feeling to meet them. I miss them very much during the holidays. Jonas Boseila Hello, My name is Josephine Bleicher (but my friends and family call me Josie), at the moment I’m fourteen years old, but I am fifteen years old when I would be able visit Delphos. I’m visiting the 9th grade at the moment. I was born in a little town, called Erlenbach a.M. in Bavaria on the 26th of March 1997. When I was two years old my family moved from Bavaria to Thuringia, where we lived for about eight years. When I was nine years old, my Josie Bleicher dad has got a new job in North RhineWestphalia. So then, in 2006, my family moved again. This time to Halle (Westf.) which is right next to Werther, the town where my school is in. My favorite hobby is snowboarding, which isn’t always easy to do in North Rhine – Westfalia, because there are no high mountains in this area. When we lived in Thuringia we were allowed to go snowboarding nearly every weekend while it was wintertime and snowing. I’m also interested in fashion, sewing and whipping clothes, photographing and listening to music. My favorite Bands are The XX, Two Door Cinema Club, Arctic Monkeys, Metronomy and Casper. My best friend tries to teach me some chords on his bassguitar whenever we meet. I can play one song now. It’s “Smoke on the water” by Deep Purple. I love music, because it always gives me a happy feeling, in case I’m feeling unhappy. But the best way to feel happy is meeting my friends. I’m meeting up with them often, nearly every day. We often do photographing, go shopping, do sports, sing, chat or cook (I’m a vergetarian and I don’t like fish and fungi, because I don’t like its taste.) together. I would really miss them, as they mean a lot to me. They became a part of my family for me meanwhile. I also like to meet new people and forge new friendships. My family contains my mom Heike, my dad Matthias, my cat Lizzie and my dog Misou. I have no siblings, but my cat and my dog are like siblings for me as I care about them lots. My mom is working as a dental nurse in Bielefeld, the onliest big city around, and my dad is working as an IT Manager at Gerry Weber. He worked at Levis Strauss before, but Gerry Weber offered him a better job. Therefore we had to move, but I’m pretty okay with moving at all, because I like to meet new people and get to know other traditions. That’s actually the primary reason why I want to visit the USA. I want to live the “American way of live” for some months, because I got impressed by all those movies about America and American teenagers and I just won’t believe that these movies show reality. The movies always tell us about High School, Football Players and Cheerleaders, but I bet that living in America is composed to many other matters. I want to get known these matters. One other big reason for me to visit the USA is to

learn to speak the language better, because this is something that can never be taken from me again. I will be able to speak this language in perfect forever. That’s a big task not everyone can reach, but I’m convinced I can reach it. Dear greetings, Josie Dear host-family, My name is Julie and I’m a 14 year old student from Verl. I really hope you think my candidature is interesting and you can suggest me as your guest daughter for four month. So, now I’m going to tell you something about me, my family and my friends. I live in a nice house near Verl, where I go to school. We’ve got two cats, one dog and a horse. Also I’ve got some bunnies and budgies. I’m going to put some photos of them in the following photo sites. I’ve got a one year old little sister, which name is Claire. I really like to play with her, see her growing up and take care for her. I love them all very much, and a good familiar atmosphere is very important to me. In my free time I love to play tennis with my friends, ride my horse through the forests or take photos of something. I like nature very much, our house is near a forest, but I like to go shopping or to cinema with friends, too. In summer my dad and me are riding his Harley Davidson. Music is very important to me, because it can describe all feelings in a special way. And I also love it to write stories and read books because when I’ve got my A-level I want to study Journalism. At home I don’t go to church very steady but I would like to get to know it in Delphos. I think the faith in god can help in every situa- Julie Intveen tion in life and it’s really good to pray. At school I like the subjects English, French and German very much because I’m interested in different languages and countries. I always wanted to make an exchange to another country, and a big one like the USA would be fantastic! I want to learn many things about everydays life in America, the school and the culture. Some students of my school are going to Delphos, because it’s the twin city of Verl, and everyone I asked told me it’s a fantastic adventure and I really have to go there if I could. They said the four month pass by so fast that they can’t believe they are coming home in some days. I saw many photos of Delphos, and I think it’s a very nice town I really want to get to know! So, I hope you liked my letter and we are going to meet each other in Delphos soon! Yours, Julie Intveen Dear host family, I am Sophia Mersch 14 years old, I live in Germany in a small city called Verl. I have got four sisters: Johanna (21), Charlotte (18), Felicitas (8), Olivia (6) and I live with them and my parents: Winfried (49) and Claudia (46) in a big house. We like to be in our backyard and to enjoy our lake with koi carps. We also have birds, a rabbit and a cat called Pedro. My mother Claudia is at home (in the past she sold clothes), my dad Winfried has got a little company and sells cleaning equipment. My

grandparents Waltraud (71) and Hans (74) are living next to our house. I love having a big family. We often spend time in our backyard together. But we also like to travel during our holidays, we have already gone to Turkey, Spain, Great Britain and the Netherlands. During the summer time my family and I like to sail with our little boat. My whole family sails and my grandfather often sailed sailing races for the best German sailor of P- boats! Nevertheless sailing is only a little hobby for me. I am a very sporty person, my hobbies are playing tennis and handball in a club. I like being a member of a team. My handball team is not very successful now but it always makes fun playing with my friends. Besides during so much sport I like to hang out with my friends, going to the cinema and listen to music. My f a v o u r i t e Sophia Mersch movie is “The Proposal” and I usually listen to pop music. At school my favourite subjects are sport and especially French and English I really like to get to know different cultures. School is not often very easy but I have got lots of fun with my best friends and classmates. My classmates say that I am very social, I would not say that. I just do not like it when someone bullies another one, I hate having no respect and do not appreciate mistakes. In the future I want to help handicapped children. I am going to do a work experience in a kindergarten with handicapped children at the beginning of the next year. I am catholic and I like it to go to church to pray to God and as for me it helps me for the sorrow of my grandfather and a good friend of my family! In the next year I have my confirmation and my little sister Felicitas will have her communion and at the moment she learns very much about God and my mother helps her friends and her with that preparation of the communion. When I have to describe me in 3 words I would say I am a happy, crazy and sporty girl and I haven’t got problems to integrate me. I am always open for new things. In the past my family also hosted a French guy and an Italian girl for one week. We had so much fun learning something from our exchange students. It was interesting to listen to them when they were talking about their country and their traditions. Another reason why I want to go to America is because my oldest sister was in Michigan for a year and she told me lots of interesting, funny and cool things which I would like to experience on my own. It would be great to go to America because I have already been to England for two weeks and I am excited to learn something about a new culture and new traditions, and meet new people, especially about the American way of life now. I am looking forward being a member of an American family and I think it would be a great experience by my own. Of course it would be great having a host sister or brother but I think it would also be interesting to live in a family without any children. I am looking forward being a member of your family. Your, Sophia Mersch

Ahhh! Sweet Springtime!


Postmaster Ed Truesdale and his assistants are fearing that the local mail service will be seriously hampered in the near future as a result of a change in the handling of the mails at the Pennsylvania. A notice has been received, stating that, beginning March 15, the service of a station employee for the transfer of the mail at the Pennsylvania station will be discontinued after midnight. This will discontinue service for Pennsylvania westbound No. 113 and mail on that train will likely pass through Delphos and then will have to be returned from Ft. Wayne. If this is done, it will greatly hamper the distribution of mail in Delphos. Employees of the local office start at 4 o’clock each morning on the working up of the mail which has come in during the night. The change will greatly delay the arrival of this mail and it will be necessary to delay the route service, both city and rural, at least one hour each day if all the mail is to be ready for the carriers by the time they leave. Delphos Herald, Feb. 15, 1927 ********** Old timber in good condition after 70 years Frank Hupley, acting Lincoln Highway consul for Ohio, was a visitor in Delphos Sunday and with Arnold King, local highway consul, took a trip over the new concrete pavement on the Lincoln Highway east of Delphos. While making their inspection, their attention was

Will greatly hamper mail service here
The car from the east, a Peerless, belonging to C.O. Griffin, Ft. Wayne, struck the Willys. The Peerless was turned over by the impact. One of its occupants sustained a severe cut on his hand. The Peerless had been damaged at Lima, Sunday, and had been repaired, and it was being driven to Ft. Wayne by a mechanic who was accompanied by two other garage employees. The Willys bumper and headlights were damaged The front axle of the Peerless was bent, the rear axle damaged, one door glass and the windshield broken and three fenders were damaged. Both cars were brought to a Delphos garage for repairs. Delphos Herald, Feb. 15, 1927 ********** Ghost car is operated in city traffic A driverless radio controlled “ghost car” known as the “American Wonder” automobile that does everything but “hit and run” sass the traffic cop and change tires, will make its first appearance in the Central States at Indianapolis during the week of Oct. 18 to 24 under the auspicion of the Indianapolis Radio Exposition. The “American Wonder” automobile treads its way without a driver or passenger, through congested traffic, starts, stops, turns corners and sounds its horn, just as the ordinary car responds to the driver’s touch. Daily demonstrations will be given on the downtown streets during its stay in Indianapolis. Pedestrians will be astonished to see this empty car, parked at the curb, suddenly start away under its own power and move off down the street responding to the invisible impulses transmitted from a radio pilot or control car, several hundred feet away, on a wave-length of 109 to 120 meters and operated under a special government Portable Mobile Radio Station license as “Experimental Station 2XAX.” The control car is able at a distance to start and stop the motor of the “ghost car,” shift its gears at all speeds, retard the spark, and gas controls, blow the horn, operate the clutch and brakes, steer the car, ring a bell and turn five separate sets of lights “on” and “off”, all by radio energy transmitted from a radio sending set in the control car either in a still or moving position. Delphos Herald, Oct. 4, 1926 (and I thought this was a recent invention. R.H.) ********** Three schools likely to have special tournament competition Competition is the life of trade. The powers that be in school affairs in Allen County, however are not anxious to encourage competition and have taken steps to close out some of the threatened competition in basketball. Four schools which might have been included in the county tournament have been frozen out this year and have been told that, if they desire a tournament, they will have to arrange their own. Delphos High and St. John’s High of this city and St. John’s

This early spring is absolutely wonderful. I love having the screens down and the windows open. Maybe this will last a long time before we have to turn the air conditioners on. I prefer the open windows over the “canned” air until it gets too hot and humid. Naturally those with allergies need and appreciate the AC all the time. Remember the days before air conditioning. We didn’t know any different. The only allergy I had was poison ivy. I hope I have outgrown it but I’m deathly afraid of vines with three leaves. (Leaves three – leave it be!) Once when I was a kid, I had it so bad during those summer days before AC that I just went down the cellar for some cool relief. That was before people had “fixed up” basements. That’s where the furnace was …..those of us who were lucky enough to have a furnace. The basement was the place for the wringer washing machine, the cream separator, those beautiful shelves of canned goods and a place to keep the eggs cool. How many remember “cleaning” the eggs or filling the stoker? Some women still have their wringer washer to use for “special laundry”. At least we had electricity. Some of our friends and relatives along Route 190 didn’t get electricity until 1946 or after the war. Some country folks didn’t get electricity until the rural electric companies came on the scene. That meant no indoor plumbing either, just that old outhouse out by the chicken coop. Most of the people did have a telephone because the small towns had their own telephone companies, where you could ring up your neighbor with a long and a short or two shorts and a long. Many people just picked up the phone then to listen and find out what was happening. My grandma and her sister always spoke German on the phone because not everyone could understand them. What would some old timers do if they came back and saw a “smart phone?” Remember all the can-

ning and freezing of fruits and vegetables. Back in the 50”s most of us were stay at home moms. There’s something to be said for that life style. Some of my daughters, daughters-in-law and granddaughters still do some of that canning. My sister cans everything. We would have the canners going and the kettles steaming on the stove on those hot summer days. We made ketchup also and that took a lot of cooking down and steaming. I still have my old bottle capper (for ketchup) but now it just serves as an ornament on the shelf in my “office.” It was sure rewarding to look at all the canned goods on the shelves in the basement. The colors were great, with tomatoes, peaches, pickles and pickled red beets. One summer we did 100 quarts of tomatoes. My mom and I worked together on this. We could do three hampers of tomatoes in a day. My daughters got into this, too, like stomping the cooked tomatoes into juice. Ironing was another hot job. Wash and wear fabrics were just coming on the scene. I was blessed with

a little neighbor girl named Jan, who loved to iron so she came over and ironed most of the clothes for me. Remember dampening the clothes and putting them in a bag in the refrigerator until ironing time? As for farmers, it was always hot at hay-making time. My hottest job was pulling the bales off the conveyor while my brother stacked them in the mow. I didn’t have to do that very often. My farm chores usually consisted of feeding the hogs and the chickens and gathering eggs. Naturally, we had to mow grass and it wasn’t with a rider. Everyone had that old style push type. We didn’t worry about mowing twice a week to have that nicely manicured lawn. Now I enjoy riding around on that Cub Cadet — when it’s not too hot. Now to get back to this wonderful early spring — we practically had no winter. We’ve already had five or six days of record-breaking warm temperatures. I celebrated the last day of winter by spraying Round-up on the weeds. Many people were out mowing lawns on that

last day of winter. Our winter should be good for the fuel bill, unless the AEP finds another way to jack up the prices. I must confess, I do like winter. It’s so restful. It’s nice to put on a cozy sweat suit and fuzzy slippers and do a little scrapbooking. It wasn’t cold enough to “don” some of those favorite sweat suits. I’ll put them back in the upstairs closet for next year. There were some drawbacks to our mild winter. There wasn’t much ice fishing for the outdoorsman. Last year my nephew and my son-in-law supplied me with enough Lake Erie Walleye and farm pond perch and blue gill to carry me through lent. My wintertime goal was to rid my house of clutter before the tulips came up. The tulips came up a month early and my projects are not finished. So let’s enjoy the daffodils, forsythia and all the other signs of spring. Even my cloves bush is ready to bloom. The fragrance of that heirloom bush is wonderful. Have a great day!


Window to the Past
called to a number of pieces of timber taken from the roadbed. This timber was used in the old corduroy road, and it is said was placed there more than 70 years ago. The timber is still in a fine state of preservation, a portion of the old corduroy road left in place and now forms a foundation for a portion of the concrete road east of the river. The timber which was removed from the roadbed was at a point about one mile east of the river, at the Bebb farm. Delphos Herald, Aug. 30, 1926 ********** One injured in crash on Lincoln Way One man was injured and two cars were badly wrecked in an accident just west of the Mox bridge on Lincoln Highway west of Delphos at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. A Willys - St. Clair, owned and operated by a student at Ohio Northern University, Ada, was going east on the Lincoln Way, following a Chrysler. As they came around a bend in the road west of the Mox bridge, they noticed that the Chrysler had stopped to allow a westbound car to cross the bridge. Harrison applied his brakes and the Willys skidded and turned sideways on the road.

and St. Gerard’s of Lima are the four schools which were left out when plans for the tournament were made. Van Wert County displayed a more considerable spirit and Delphos High has therefore been able to enter a county tournament in spite of the attitude of the Allen County school authorities. The other three schools mentioned, however, will have to arrange a tournament of their own if they desire to find their way in the district tournament by way of a preliminary meet. It is likely that such a tournament will be held and that the local school along with the two Lima schools will participate. There is much criticism of the action of the school authorities. The people whose children attend the schools mentioned are residents of the county and should be given the same consideration which is accorded to others, even though their schools are not part of the county system. Delphos Herald, Feb. 4, 1927 ********** Ice causes electrical display here Electrical displays were in order here, Sunday night. The sleet and rain had covered the trolly wire of the traction line with ice and the trolly working on this, caused vivid flashes of light, which were mistaken by many for lightning. The ice on the line interfered with traffic to such an extent that the 8:37 car failed to arrive in Delphos Sunday night, arriving here Monday

morning. As a result of the trouble on the traction line and the bad driving conditions, the Pennsylvania saw an increase of business with people going to Lima. Pennsylvania section and signal men were busy keeping the interlocker free of ice. Business continues to improve on the Northern Ohio railroad. Two more local trains have been placed in service. Delphos Herald, Feb. 4, 1927 ********** St. John’s High Cage Artists The Lima News says: “Before one of the largest crowds that ever assembled to see a basketball game in Allen County, the St. John’s Hi team of Delphos had their eleventh consecutive victory on Wednesday night when they triumphed over Gomer by a score of 25 to 17.” “Lima Central Hi only beat Gomer by a few points and this shows that Delphos is stronger than Central.” “Delphos has one of the best Hi quintets in the county. Their team is composed of husky players who make basketball a part of their life.” “St. Rose Hi held Delphos to a 16 to 14 score here a few weeks ago.” The news failed to state that Delphos held the long end of the 16 to 14 score. It also failed to recall the St. John’s-St. Rose game which was played in this city on Friday, January 6, in which the locals won a decisive victory, defeating St. Rose cage men by a score of 20 to 9.

Another Easter will soon be here. It is a very special time that gives us hope for the future and many special memories of the past. Pictures and thoughts of Easter sunrise services, special Easter celebration services with folks dressed in their Easter Sunday best, and Easter egg hunts are being recalled from the files of my mind. It was Easter Sunday in 1975. … Janie and I had returned from taking our three children to church and it was time for the annual Easter egg hunt. Our three children as well as kids from the neighborhood waited inside while we hid the eggs in the yard around our house. Many of the eggs were hard boiled ones that the kids had enjoyed coloring with their mommy’s help. Others were chocolate and some were plastic with a special prize or money inside. Some were in plain sight so the younger kids could easily find them while others could only be discovered by careful searching. It was fun to watch the kids excitedly come outside carrying their baskets in hopes of finding as many eggs as possible and possibly discovering a prize egg or two. We had bought a duck hat for our two

Easter egg discoveries
year old daughter, Chrissy. It was actually too big for her and every time she would bend over to pick up an egg the bill of the hat which actually looked like a duck’s bill would cover her face. It made it more difficult for her, but she didn’t complain and she sure was the cutest “duck” I’ve ever seen. I was busy trying to take pictures and movies of the hunt. Captured on 8mm film is our son, John, who already had several eggs in his basket, but couldn’t seem to see the one that was right beside him. An egg had been placed on the top of a metal grounding pole that was about two feet high. Eventually he found it and quickly moved in search of more. It was also neat to watch our oldest son, Mike, quickly fill his basket with eggs and also help the younger children with their search. The children’s joy came from searching for and finding the eggs. As parents, our joy came from watching them discover the Easter eggs. I can’t help but think that our Heavenly Father takes great joy in providing so many good things for us and rejoices when we discover them. God is not too good to be true. He is so good that He MARCH 25 Kelly Barr Kelly Nomina Mary Dancer Bill Speller Malcom Stokes Elizabeth Spring Kylin Edelbrock MARCH 26 Aliah Ferguson Nicholas Bockey Larry Turnwald Justin Siefker

is true. What matters to you, matters to Him. God is better than we think so we’ve got to change the way we think. Easter reminds me that Jesus came to give us hope. He didn’t come to condemn us but to save us. The bible tells us that Jesus came to show us what God is really like. God loves us so much that He sent His Son to die for our sins. Jesus endured what we deserved so we could inherit what He deserved! There’s never been a better deal in the universe. At Easter, we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. He messed up every funeral he ever attended; including His own! The bible tells us that those of us who confess our sins, ask Jesus to save us, and believe in Him have the same resurrection power living in us that raised Christ Jesus from the dead. This Easter, I hope you will enjoy watching your children or grandchildren hunt for and discover many Easter eggs. I also hope you enjoy or will soon discover the abundant life that Jesus came to give you. Remember, the story of Easter is not too good to be true. Jesus is so good that He is true.

Bulldogs rout Red Devils, earn finals
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ delphosherald.com COLUMBUS — When a team is in uncharted territory in any sport, they players are likely to feel nerves or tightness. That is why getting off to a quick start is crucial. Take the Elida boys basketball team, for instance. They were playing in their first-ever state semifinal Friday at Value City Arena in the Jerome Schottenstein Center on the campus of Ohio State University. With their first play being an alley-oop pass from sophomore Dakota MArhias to 6-6 senior Reggie McAdams, they couldn’t have gotten off to a better start. Their start was so good in fact — 15-0, shutting out St. Clairsville in the first period (for the first time ever in a Division II state game) — that the Bulldogs were never really threatened, advancing to a first-ever state final clash with a 61-27 rout. Elida (24-3) plays unbeaten Dayton Dunbar (27-0) in today’s finals at 4:30 p.m. “We had run 23 plays off the opening tap in the last couple of seasons and they never worked. We put that play in today at the shootaround,” Elida coach Denny Thompson said. “Getting off so quickly really helped us relax; that is crucial when you are playing in territory — the state tournament — that none of us are familiar with. I’ve dreamed of this for 34 years, coming down here and hoping I’d get the chance to coach a game here.” The play took some tweaking but turned out to be crucial component of this contest. “We worked on it and originally it was going to be a double screen for me. We

The Bulldogs scored the first 15 points and easily routed the Red Devils by 34 in the Division II state semifinals on the Value City Arena floor. decided to go to a single back screen to keep some space for me,” McAdams explained. “I was already nervous and then I had to jump again. I had to get the tap. I looked at Dakota and I knew it was open. That really got us and our great fans going. When you have a sea of orange fans going crazy, we feed off that. We’ve fed off that all during our tournament run.” After McAdams (17 points, 9 rebounds) won the rejump. Mathias, on the left side, threw a perfect alley-oop to McAdams on the right side. That got them going on their way to shooting 6-of-11 in the first period (26-of-50 overall, 3-of-11 beyond the arc, for 52%). McAdams scored five and 6-4, 250-poind senior bull Cory Royster (18 counters, 18 caroms) scored four in the period. When junior Brandon Stinson hit the 1st-of-2 free throws with 47.6 ticks on the board, Elida led 15-0. The Red Devils went 0-of11 in the opener (a chilly 9-of47 overall, 4-of-29 downtown, for 19.1%). St. Clairsville (23-3) finally got on the board at 6:16 of the second period, getting a trey by Adam Jeffries (8 markers). However, struggling to get much going from the field at all, especially against the tough Elida man-to-man defense, the closest they could get the erst of the game was 20-8 on a triple by Jerrid Marhefka (9 points, 5 rebounds) at 3:30. From then on, the Orange and Black spent the rest of the way slowly building its lead. Senior Mike McDonald (9 points, 4 caroms, 4 steals) came off the bench to provide four points in the period, including back-to-back steals and layups. Royster made a nice move in the paint to get a layup at 28.5 ticks showing for a 26-11 halftime edge. Royster, whom the Red Devils really had no matchup for, went wild in the third period, dropping in five baskets and adding seven boards. McAdams added seven as the Bulldogs canned 10-of-18 shots. With St. Clairsville only managing 2-of-10 shots, all

Sometimes little kids walking My mom told me that as a teenfor our pretend muskets. The “surgeons” at Bowersock’s provided my friends and me with just what we needed. We would ask for the horns. We took them to our back yard and proceeded to boil out the tissue. The end result served the purpose adequately, but the cooking odor was almost unbearable. There must have been a better way! In those days John and Jill Sheeter’s dad, Gene, had the Dodge dealership in Delphos on the corner of Fifth and Main. He also must have been the local Deputy Registrar that issued license plates. I don’t remember vanity plates being available, but if the number that you wanted was near, they had no problem issuing it to you for the asking. Scherger’s Monuments was located across the street, northwest of Sheeter’s. My brother Bill worked there as a teenager, sweeping and dusting the granite. My mom’s dad, Henry Grothouse, was employed there for many years, well into his seventies, as the engraver. This job required great concentration and precision. It also afforded him the opportunity to display his natural artistic talents. His children and grandchildren proudly displayed his art around the house. He once told me that he enrolled in an art school in Columbus as a teenager in the mid 1890’s, but became so homesick that he soon “went over the wall” and found his way back to familiar land and people. As kids my cousin, Kenny Wagner, and I were impressed when he sharpened our pocket knives on the emery wheel in the back room. We then went to our back yard and played “splits”. This game involves standing in the grass a foot or so apart facing each other. Taking turns, we would throw the knife to stick it in the ground about a foot to the left or right of each other to see who could outstretch the other.

We became almost a club, meeting every afternoon to fold our papers and to spread the news of the town. It was fascinating to watch Gene Tegenkamp and Gary (Goose) Brickner man the huge, noisy printing press as it pulled, printed, folded, and cut six-foot rolls paper into six pages of news. We all hoped that the press would not jamb. If it did, that meant that we might have a late supper. The noise of that antiquated press is still imprinted in my mind. We carriers received and folded our papers in the same room that served for storage of gigantic, heavy rolls of newspaper print. Those rolls must have weighed a ton each and Delphos Food Locker workers, from left, Gilbert were double stacked with little provision at the time for safety.

He even washed the windshield and asked to “check under the hood”. I imagine that the driver would have been reprimanded for trying to pump his own. If he needed mechanical work, there were usually two bays where the mechanics could perform more demanding jobs. Got a penny? Let’s get a gumball from the machine there by the door. As a kid you would drop a wheat penny in the slot. As you would slide the chrome lever to the left, you challenged yourself to correctly guess which of the colored balls would drop from the glass bowl. You hoped that it wouldn’t come out too fast and fall to the floor. That might be your last penny. Just east of Kaskel’s there was a two-story house that Dr. Burnett used as an office. His

It was a popular establishment at the earlier site and continued to be after moving to the North side of the street. Now the building still enjoys its popularity under new management by providing good food and service. Mike Rode and his sister Kathy help make the business an attraction. You can from there almost see Brownie Bowersock’s Delphos Food Locker. Our family as well as many other bought and stored a quarter or half of beef here. Live cattle were brought here to be butchered. We kids used to stop by on weekday mornings to watch the butcher in his procedure from corralling the steer to hanging the halves. Occasionally a steer was not “polled”, and therefore still had its horns. As boys growing up with the tune and lyrics of “Davey Crocket” often on our tongue, it occurred to us that we would need a powder horn

My route stretched along north Washington and North Main streets all the way past the string of shabby, gray migrant shanties located past the Canal locks by Saint Mary’s Food Processing. Every Saturday morning, rain, shine, or deep snow, found me with a paper punch, money chang-

non-paying customers owed less than twenty dollars total. I rarely was awarded the extra dollar. So many people wanted to “pay next week.” None-theless, while the pay was minimal, I met a lot of good people. I developed people skills and gained more self- confidence.

The Herald –9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, MARCH 25, 2012 The year ahead should be an extremely active one for you both socially and in terms of business. You are likely to make lots of new friends who will introduce some exciting experiences into your life. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you think you are entitled to specific consideration from certain people, speak up. Others’ minds aren’t always operating on the same wavelength, and people may need reminding. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Use the same methods that previously brought you success in tackling something very similar to what you’re now facing. What worked before should work again, with perhaps a few minor changes. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Without realizing it, you have won the confidence of someone who has been studying you closely. This person is looking for a person to confide in and believes you’re the one. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Several wonderful, worthwhile ideas are likely to spring from some casual discussions you’ll be having with others. Funny how the best schemes pop up when you’re not looking. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t hesitate to act in harmony with your thoughts and/or inspirations. Certain ideas that enter your head concerning ways to further your ambitions could be very worthwhile. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Gains you acquire are likely to come about in a circuitous fashion. You’ll be able to understand what’s happening, but others will miss the point, allowing you to take advantage of them. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -The credit will belong to you when several people who have strong emotional ties pull together for a common cause. It will be due to you knowing how to get everyone working collectively. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- This is an especially good day to have a frank discussion regarding an important issue that needs resolving. Solutions can be found that will benefit all parties involved. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you put your mind to it, ways can be developed that’ll enhance your earning capacity. The improvements you come up with might not make you rich, but they could sweeten the pot. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- As time passes and you open up, you’re likely to become more and more sociable. If you haven’t made plans for the day, it might prove worthwhile to join some friends who have. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You’re apt to be surprised by some candid comments made by someone whose confidence you didn’t know you enjoyed. What occurs indicates closer bonds can be formed. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Social activities that emphasize the mental rather than the physical are likely to be the most appealing for you. Seek out chatty friends rather than your jogging buddies to pass the time. MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2012 Realizing that you don’t have to take a backseat to anyone, your personal potential will be uppermost in your mind in the year ahead. It’s a time when you’ll be coming of age both literally and figuratively. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your instincts for exploiting opportunities to make or save money are keener than usual. You might not make a killing, but you will use your funds extremely well. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -It behooves you to be a good listener when a normally quiet friend is in a talkative mood. What he or she has to say could be extremely valuable. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -When it comes to competitive career involvements, it isn’t likely to be who you know but what you know that counts. Whoever is best prepared will be the victor. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Friends are apt to find you a delightful person to be around. It will become very obvious to them that their conversation and ideas will be well received by you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Something that might be of little interest to others but is of enormous importance to you can successfully produce a large profit, all because you have the motivation to take action. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Let your companions have the same freedom of choice that you would like. If this simple rule is followed, everyone will end up being happy and in a convivial mood. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Instead of focusing primarily on your own affairs, you might have to allocate some time and energy to someone else’s projects or problems. Don’t begrudge them your time or effort. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -The company you keep will exert a big influence over the way you look at the world. Try to spend your free time with companions who know how to enjoy life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Although you might not be able to wrap up all the little odds and ends from last week that you might like to, you can substantially reduce them if you make an effort. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It’s best not to wait until the last minute to make an arrangement with another party, because the person with whom you’d like to get together is apt to make other plans. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Even if it isn’t too likely that you will come across a super bargain, you should nevertheless be a comparison shopper. Those small amounts you save will add up impressively. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Although mental endeavors may not be too tough for you, physical involvements could tire you out quickly. Don’t press yourself beyond your normal endurance.
