Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869

Residents asked to join cancer research study
BY MIKE FORD mford@delphosherald.com Long-term research is imperative if the medical community is to discover cures and treatments to various diseases. This is especially true in the fight against cancer and area residents can help. The American Cancer Society and two area hospitals are looking for those who’ve never been diagnosed with the disease and are between the ages of 30 and 65 to participate in a study. Delphos Relay for Life Chair Cindy Metzger is corralling participants and describes what the test will consist of. “They are looking for patterns that might lead to more discovery of what causes cancer. They will have you answer an extensive health questionnaire, take a waist measurement and draw a little bit of blood. They will study you for the next 20 to 30 years by randomly sending you follow-up surveys at home every few years,” she said. Those who are willing to participate should register at limacps3.org. The questionnaire can be filled out online and if one does that, the appointment will only take 20-30 minutes as opposed to 45-60 minutes if everything is done onsite. The appointments will take place as follows: St. Rita’s Medical Center will run a CPS-3 site from 3-6:30 p.m. on Aug. 7 and 8

HERALD
Delphos, Ohio in Putnam County. In 1836, a larger but still crude church was constructed. The new structure included a steeple and a bell. The church and the community continued to grow. By 1844, records to the bishop showed that 731 people practiced their religion at the church. The church continued to thrive. Construction on yet another church began in 1846 and was completed in 1848; made of brick. Also that year, Horstmann died and the parish administration was taken over by the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. The Missionaries and the Sisters of the Precious Blood served and continue to serve the parish. A few months after the assimilation of the groups, priests, brothers and sisters came to open the school in Glandorf. Early work included farming, weaving and beekeeping in addition to their church-related duties. More than 100 sisters taught in the Glandorf School District over the years. In 1874, then pastor Father Bernard Dickman sought the approval of the bishop to build another church as the congregation had outgrown the current structure. The congregation banded together and raised the $25,000 needed for the new structure. In 1876, on the Feast of St. John the Baptist, the cornerstone of the current church was laid. The church was dedicated in 1878. At the time, it was the largest Catholic church in Northwest Ohio. Information from this article was obtained from Laborers in the Vineyard, Precious Blood Ministry in Glandorf, and A Glandorf Album by Michael E. Leach.

Glandorf church withstands test of time

By CORTNEY MUMAUGH Sentinel Correspondent

GLANDORF — The historic St. John the Baptist Church in Glandorf has withstood the test of time, making itself a pillar of the community. The neo-Gothic structure still draws attention today. It contains art by great German-American artists. The wooden pulpit was carved by The Schroeder Brothers of Cincinnati. It won a gold medal at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition for the beautiful work. The 12 apostles were painted by Johann Schmitt on the church vault. Stained glass windows were designed by the Munich Mayer Company. In 1882, they sent a set of Stations of the Cross to Schroeder Brothers who fashioned wood-carved frames. Unfortunately, in 1992, the church endured a fire. It was estimated that the church suffered $1.2 million in damages to the interior of the building. The community rallied together and the church was restored after repainting, new carpeting and pews. Original artwork had to be painstakingly restored. In 1954, Our Lady of Grace shrine was built on the Pioneer Cemetery using the old tombstones to call to

mind the sacrifices the forefathers endured. Many other Catholic parishes in the county can trace its roots back to St. John the Baptist in Glandorf. The church began modestly by the Rev. Johann Wilhelm Horstmann, who was a native of Germany. Upon arriving in Ohio, Horstmann had a log house

built which became the church and the rectory in 1834. He along with other settlers from Germany named and founded Neu Glandorf, after the German town. The parish was dedicated to St. John the Baptist, which was the patron saint of Horstmann’s home parish. The first Mass was on Easter Sunday in 1834. This was the first Catholic church

Romney says he played no managing role in equity firm after 1999
By JIM KUHNHENN and PHILIP ELLIOTT Associated Press LACONIA, N.H. — His credibility under attack, Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney insisted on Friday that he had “no role whatsoever in the management” of a private equity firm after early 1999, and demanded that President Barack Obama apologize for campaign aides who persist in alleging otherwise. “This is simply beneath the dignity of the presidency of the United States,” Romney said in an interview on ABC, one of several he granted to network and cable stations in hopes of extinguishing the controversy. Under pressure from Democrats and even some Republicans to release tax returns going back several years, Romney indicated he wouldn’t do so. “You can never satisfy the opposition research team of the Obama organization,” he told CBS. Romney said after he left Bain Capital he retained ownership “until we were able to negotiate a departure” from the company he had founded. “I had no role whatsoever in the management of Bain Capital after February of 1999,” he said, adding that officials at the company and independent fact-checkers had said the same thing. He also said, “I was an owner, and being a shareholder doesn’t mean you’re running the business.” He said he couldn’t recall attending any Bain management meetings after he moved to Salt Lake City to oversee the Olympic Games. The precise role Romney played at the firm between 1999 and 2001 is important not only because critics have raised questions about his truthfulness, but also because Bain was sending jobs overseas during that period. That, in turn, goes to the core issue of the race for the White House in dreary economic times, Romney’s claim that as a former businessman, he has the ability to create jobs and finally pull the country out of a downturn that has lingered throughout Obama’s term. The Obama campaign criticized Romney as running a firm that pioneered job outsourcing. Some Securities and Exchange Commission documents have surfaced suggesting Romney played an active role in the Boston-based company through 2002. The filings with the SEC place Romney in charge of Bain Capital from 1999 to 2001, the period in which it outsourced jobs and ran companies that fell into bankruptcy. Obama himself had stepped into the controversy a few hours before Romney’s comments were aired. “Now, my understanding is that Mr. Romney attested to the SEC multiple times that he was the chairman, CEO and president of Bain Capital. And I think most Americans

figure if you’re the chairman, CEO and president of a company that you are responsible for what the company does,” Obama said in an interview with WJLA-TV in Virginia as he campaigned across the battleground state. The president said the questions that have been raised in numerous media reports and highlighted by his own campaign aides were a legitimate part of the race for the White House. “Ultimately, I think, Mr. Romney is going to have to answer those questions because if he aspires to being president, one of the things you learn is you’re ultimately responsible for the conduct of your operations,” the president said.

Make me cry, Lotus
It’s that time of year again. As my faithful read this I should be back home, snuggled in bed with the furry one and recovering from a fly-by-night trip to the Columbus airport to drop my better half off for his flight to the Baltimore/ Washington Airport. He will then be whisked away by his sister and family to Virginia Beach. Yes, it’s time for the fabulous Lotus to dance her heart out, bring home trophies and just generally amaze her uncle. Not that it’s that hard. We think she’s pretty amazing just by being here. The trip has become sort of routine for him. He knows what to pack and has already perused web sites to find out what there is to do and see in Virginia Beach. I’m assuming this trip will not include a ride on The Slingshot on the boardwalk. It was a really great youtube video, though. I, on the other, have been plotting for weeks. I have squirrelled away all my favorite foods he doesn’t like and we don’t eat very often and I have a stack of paperbacks I’m making it my mission to read. Visits to friends and perhaps some swimming are on list, too. I enjoy going places and taking trips but I also like to just stay home, do what I want and not have a schedule. I think it’s probably because my professional life is one big deadline. It’s nice to just cruise along and take the day as comes, making plans on a whim, or not. Sometimes no plan is the best plan. I’m sure I will receive daily (sometimes multiple) updates on how Lotus is doing and

On the Other hand
I’ll watch most of her performances online. It really is the next best thing to being there without having to watch a hundred other kids I don’t know dance before my Lotus Leaf (my pet name for her) takes the stage. There will also be the quiet evening calls from my husband filling me on his day and where they went to eat and the stores he shopped in, etc. Both types of calls are welcome and equally important to me. We also send a lot of texts. He’s not supposed to have his phone on in the dance hall but we’ve always been a bit naughty when it comes to rules. A quick text to let me know she’s getting ready to go on stage is very much appreciated. There have been times I will plan my whole day around a Lotus performance. This year, I’m ready. I’ll have the tissues on hand and phone by my side. I don’t know what it is, but every time I see her dance, especially a slow number or ballet, I cry like a little girl. I guess I’m just a proud aunt. Is there any other kind?

Answers to Friday’s questions: The famous championship boxing match the 1974 Rumble in the Jungle (in Zaire, not the Democratic Republic of the Congo) was the subject of the 1996 Oscar-winning documentary feature film. The challenger, Muhammed Ali, 32, regained his world heavyweight title by knocking out champion George Foreman, 25. The documentary was When We Were Kings. When it comes to Wall Street slang, the meaning of the acronym KIPPERS is Kids in Parents’ Pockets Eroding Retirement Savings. It refers to adult working-age children who’ve finished school and are living at home with and off their parents.

“Let me be known as just the man that told you something you already knew.” — Woody Guthrie

by HELEN KAVERMAN
The Village of Landeck has a group of residents called Landeck Community Pride. Anyone from the whole wide area can be a member. There are no dues, just coming to a meeting can make you a member. Members take a lot of pride in their community and show it with their activities and projects. They have put up Welcome to Landeck signs and they hold village clean-up days, picking up trash which has blown into town by the wind or thrown out of a passing car. Their big project in the works is playground equipment. Their big spring project was putting on a Senior Citizens Appreciation Day. This event took place on May 18 and a good time was had by all. Doc and Dorothy Miller offered their family party room for the event which was attended by 80 guests. The idea was first mentioned by Jim Illig. Say no more! The ball got rolling. Ruth Hammons served as emcee and hostess, along with several other “young” ladies with Landeck roots. Father Mel Verhoff opened the gathering with prayer and a delicious buffet lunch was served by the group. Marilyn Gengler entertained with organ music and everyone joined in singing some of the old tunes. There was reminiscing about the old businesses and the more recent businesses in town. Jim Illig told how they started I & K on North Main Street in Delphos in the Yoder Building. The ladies made potato salad in bathtubs. Joan Minning told of how Lou Minning and Tom Sever started the Town Tavern and Doc Miller spoke of how D & D Grain began. They reminisced about the Youngpeter Hatchery, Suever Stone Quarry, the Landeck Elevator and the famous Race Track, west of town. They all mentioned how “Lonnie” hollered out of her upstairs window at the kids on the school playground. Ruth Hammons also displayed a collection of newspapers featuring Landeck articles. Sam Bonifas gave a very interesting and informative presentation of the Landeck community during the years 1910 to 1939. Sam is the official Landeck historian who has searched the old newspapers for anything and everything about Landeck. He has compiled a 2,200 page book to include all this info. That’s 1,100 sheets of paper on both sides in one large book. Sam opened with 1910. On the world scene, that was the year Haley’s Comet was discovered. On the local scene, Youngpeter’s traction engine plunged through the bridge over the Jennings Creek. The hitch broke so the separator stayed up on the bank. They just drove the machine out on the other side of the creek. It was also the year Joseph Wilhelm was assigned to the Toledo State Hospital. John Williams was his guardian. While going through Joe’s home they found $7,000 in gold silver and bank certificates. 1911 — John Meyers was buncoed out of $1,000. It took two full pages to report this story. You can find more facts of this story in the 8 August 1911 Delphos newspapers. In 1912 Father Lang arrived in Landeck to be pastor of the Catholic Church and Ferd Schwinnen had a barn fire. The big thing in world events was the sinking of the Titanic. 1913 and 1914 were bad years for Landeck farmers with several farm accidents. In 1913 John Heidenescher (son if Gus) was injured in a barn raising accident and Frank Pohlman was run down by a binder, being pulled by a team of runaway horses. In 1914, Peter Wagner was run over by a loaded wagon — another team of runaway horses. The loaded wagon left Pete with a badly crushed chest, but it was not fatal. Also in 1914, John Vondran broke his neck when he fell out of a haymow. His accident proved fatal. During that same year John Kimmet

Jacob’s story
There is a television show called “If Walls Could Talk.” In it, owners of older houses find something interesting in their home and research to find out more about its history, often coming up with amazing stories. At the museum, we have many items with stories to tell. While working on signage in our log cabin area, we came across three cooking utensils forged by Jacob Ludwig. There was a pattern on the handles along with his name and the year 1849. These items were crying out to have their story told. Jacob, born in 1818 in Pickaway, was the third Ludwig by that name, after his father and grandfather. His greatgrandfather, name unknown, fought in the Revolutionary War with George Washington. His father fought in the War of 1812. One of his sons fought in the Civil War. Our Jacob did not fight in a war, but he certainly faced some battles in his life. He was only 6 years old when his father died and when he was 8, his mother could no longer afford to keep

him so he was bound out to men who over-worked him and gave him few comforts in life ... a very sad childhood. Finally, at the age of 18, things began to look up. His mother had remarried and could now afford to have him apprenticed to the blacksmith trade. Jacob married in 1841 at the age of 23 and moved his family to a place near Elida in May 1849. He worked there at a forge until the following September, when he purchased 40 acres near Delphos in section 33, Marion Township, situated on the Auglaize River east of what today is Walnut Grove Cemetery. About a third of the land had been cleared and contained a log cabin, which served as the family home until the following year, when he completed his own residence. Jacob died in 1903 at the age of 84; a prosperous and wellrespected man. In 1913, one of his sons donated three forged utensils to John Wahmhoff, a local druggist, as some of the first items that would be included in the Delphos Historical Society museum

Reds cop TCLL title

By JIM METCALFE

VAN WERT — The Delpha Chevy Reds had only lost one game in the double-round-robin format of the 2012 Tri-County Little League regular season, going 15-1 against eight other teams. Nothing changed in the season-ending tournament. The Reds (18-1) received an efficient complete game from Collin Will in besting the Delphos Pirates 10-2 on a warm and brilliant Friday night at the Fort Jennings High School Little League diamond to claim the sweep of the regular-season and the tournament titles. Will gave up five hits and a pair of earned runs, walking two and fanning eight. The Pirates (10-9), the visiting team on the scoreboard, had a 2-out threat in the first: a single up the gut by Troy Schwinnen and a double to right center by Cole Reindel. However, Schwinnen got too far off of third and was tagged out after a rundown for the third out. Reds (18-1) got to Pirates starter Jarrod Wurst for a run in the home half. With one down, Brennan Auer hit a 1-bounce triple to the fence in left; an error on the sequence allowed him to touch home base for a 1-0 edge. The Pirates had a golden chance in the second. They loaded the bases with no one out on an infield hit to short by Tyler Schrider, a single to left center by Wurst — advancing Shrider to third and the batter taking second on the throw to third — and a walk to Matthew Miller. Two outs later, Hunter Haehn singled past first sacker Damien Jones and into right to score Shrider and Wurst and sending Miller to third, with the batter taking second. However, a comebacker by Connor Anspach ended the threat and accounted for the only runs by the Pirates. Will then retired 12 of the next 13 batters he faced in the next four frames, with Miller the only base-runner with a 2-out free pass in the Pirates fourth. Will registered four strikeouts and six ground-ball outs, five of them comebackers in fielding his position very well. Delpha put it away with a 7 spot in the second, sending 11 to the dish. Andrew Foust lined a shot into left, advanced on

a wild pitch and took third as Brady Grothaus grounded a hit into center, the latter taking second on the throw home. Curtis Schwinnen lashed a hit onto right, scoring Foust and putting runners on the corners. The batter stole second. An out hence, Robby Bueschor benefited from a tough-hop infield hit that handcuffed second sacker Cole Reindel, plating Grothaus for a 3-2 score and putting runners on the corners. Will’s ground ball was misplayed, scoring Schwinnen and leaving runners at first and second. Auer blooped a hit to center, loading the bases. Jones walked to push Bueschor across the plate for a 5-2 spread. Darius Shurelds forced Jones at second, scoring Will; continuing the play, Auer scored and Shurelds took second. A wild toss moved him up a base and after a walk to Foust and a stolen base, another wild toss brought Shurelds home for an 8-2 edge. The southpaw Miller came on in relief in the third for the Pirates and turned in a 1-2-3 inning.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife CENTRAL OHIO Griggs Reservoir (Franklin County) - This 361-acre lake in Columbus provides opportunities for both largemouth and smallmouth bass; crankbaits, spinner and tube baits fished around cover along shorelines can be very productive. Bluegill are being caught in shallow areas; try nightcrawlers and wax worms under a bobber. Large carp can be taken using dough balls. Crappies are being caught around submerged timber; use minnows or small jigs under a bobber. O’Shaughnessy Reservoir (Delaware County) - Saugeye are being caught trolling worm harnesses and small crankbaits in the south end. Bluegill are biting in the north end; target shallower areas. Largemouth bass are being caught lake-wide around shoreline cover; try crankbaits, spinner and tube baits in morning and evening for best results. NORTHWEST OHIO Resthaven Wildlife Area, Pond 7 (Erie County) - This 444-acre area is located just outside Castalia on SR 269; it contains 10 different ponds. Anglers should still be able to hook into some largemouth bass this time of year; typical lures include plastic worms and crankbaits. Pond 7 is also excellent for carp; for something new, try bow-fishing from the access roads or from a boat. Boats may be used on the ponds; however, no ramps are available at most of the ponds. Pond 8 does have a ramp and a handicapped-accessible fishing pier. Gasoline motors up to 9.9 HP may be used on all ponds. NOTICE: Due to a tile issue, Pond 10 has been drawn down for repairs. Oxbow Lake (Defiance County) Located at Oxbow Wildlife Area, it is 7 miles northwest of Defiance on Trinity Road. Despite the heat, anglers have been catching some largemouth bass; try tube jigs and white spinner baits. Boats are allowed and there is a ramp available; however, they are restricted to electric motors only. Ferguson Reservoir (Allen County) - Bluegill have been biting at this 305acre site; try near the boat ramp at the north bank and at the east bank near the cattails, especially with jigs and wax worms under a slip bobber. Catfish should also be biting this time of year; try along the dike that separates Ferguson and Metzger reservoirs along the bottom using balloons at night with crawlers, shrimp or liver suspended below. Anglers should also be able to hook into some perch; the best fishing is along the south side near the steps. There is a primitive boat ramp on the reservoir but boats are restricted to electric motors only. SOUTHWEST OHIO Indian Lake (Logan County) - The best fishing action has been early in the morning and in the evening. For saugeye, try trolling with a Rat-L-Trap or Shad-Rap. Anglers are reporting slow fishing from the shore. Bluegill have moved off of the banks and are hitting around rocks and docks. Catfish are biting on chicken liver, shrimp, cut shad and nightcrawlers. Lake Loramie (Auglaize/Shelby counties) - The best crappie fishing has been by boaters working around

structure at 6-7 feet deep; minnows have been the top bait. For bluegill, anglers should fish from the banks early and late; during the day, work the deep brush piles. Catfish are hitting all over the lake on nightcrawlers, cut shad, chicken liver and prepared baits. For bass, fish off the banks in 7-9 feet of water with spinners and crankbaits.

Winners in the 11-12 age group for the throwing contest (second from top) are, left to right, Brenen Auer, 1st place; Matthew Miller, 2nd place; and Collin Will, 3rd place.

Walleye fishing has been fair. Fish have been caught by trolling or drifting and casting N of West Sister Island, at the turnaround buoy of the Toledo shipping channel, W of Green Island to Rattlesnake Island and on the Canadian border W of Gull Island Shoal; trollers have been using worm harnesses with in-line weights or divers and divers with spoons. ... Yellow perch fishing has been best around the Toledo water intake, S of “G” can of the Camp Perry firing range, W of Gull Island Shoal, SE of Kelleys Island and E of the Kelleys Island airport; perchspreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Central Basin Walleye fishing has been excellent at the weather buoy near the Canadian line N of Vermilion and nearshore in 15-30’ of water from Cranberry Creek to Old Woman Creek. Fishing has picked up off Cleveland with the best locations in 20’ of water NE of Rocky River and in 58’ of water N of Edgewater Park. There has been excellent fishing, best of the year, in 68-72’ NE/NW of Geneva and in 58-62’ and 72’ NE/NW of Ashtabula; trollers are using planer boards, dipsy and jet divers and wireline with blue, green, yellow, pink and purple spoons and stick baits. ... Yellow perch fishing has been excellent, particularly in 40’ and 45-46’ N of Edgewater Park, in 38-45’ NW of Fairport Harbor and in 47-48’ N/NE of Conneaut; perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Shore anglers are catching fish off the Cleveland Piers and at Headlands Beach Pier in Mentor out at the lighthouse using spreaders with shiners; mornings and evenings have been best. ... Shore anglers are also catching rock bass off the Cleveland piers. Smallmouth bass fishing has been very good in 15-25’ around harbor areas in Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula and Conneaut using dropshot rigs with rubber worms, soft-craws, leeches, tube jigs and crank baits. East of Fairport Harbor, anglers are trolling crank baits in 22-24’ with good success. In the Grand River, anglers are catching smallmouth and some largemouth bass. White bass anglers are catching fish nearshore in 15-20’ NE of Gordon Park (Bratenahl) and in 10-15’ N of Eastlake CEI. Look for gulls feeding on schools of shiners at the surface; white bass will be below shiners. Shore anglers are catching white bass off Eastlake CEI breakwall using agitators with jigs tipped with twister tails or small spoons. ... Catfish

Fort Jennings TSA teams place in top 10 in state
Fort Jennings High School competed recently through Ohio Northern University in the TSA-TEAMS competition. TSA (Technology Student Association) sponsor the nationwide engineering competition. TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science) is a two part test posing questions similar to those faced by college freshman level engineering courses. TEAMS introduce students to an engineering teamwork environment. Students work together in an open book, open note, open discussion format. 11-12 teams consist of 4 to 8 students in grades 9 -12, while 9-10 teams are limited to grades 9-10. Part I of the test consisted of 80 objective questions. Students were given 90 minutes to complete this portion of the test. Part I was used for scoring for local and state awards, along with part of the national scoring. Part II of the test required students to describe and defend their solutions to open ended subjective questions from problems they worked on in Part I. They were given an additional 90 minutes to complete this portion of the test. Part II of the test was scored for national recognition and added to the Part I score.

Members of the 11-12 members included, front from left, Rachel Krietemeyer, Gina Stechschulte, Gabbi German and Kaitlin Stechschulte; and back, Aaron Schnipke, Ethan Schimmoeller, Nick Verhoff and Tyler Wiedeman.

Fort Jennings competed in Division I (schools with 0 to 75 students in their senior class). The 11-12 team placed fourth in the state and 18th nationally. The 9-10 team finished first in the state and 6th nationally. This marks the fifth consecutive year that Fort Jennings has finished in the top ten nationally. There were 127 schools participating nationally in the competition in Division I. The students practiced in the mornings before school starting in December for the competition with their advisor, Kevin Horstman, before taking the test in late February. This is the fifteenth time Fort Jennings has advanced a TSA-TEAM to the top ten nationally. Members of the 9-10 team were, front from left, Cassie Lindeman, Nicole Ricker, Sarah Hellman and Alyssa Wiedeman; and back, Alyssa Schimoeller, Logan Sickels, Seth Ricker and Jamie Saum.

Congratulations on a Great Job!

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, JULY 15, 2012 Enterprises that you have a strong hand in launching in the year ahead are likely to turn out to be quite favorable, if you don’t lose control. You’d be smart to keep your hands on the wheel instead of letting others do the steering. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Perhaps unbeknownst to you, there is likely to be a lot of activity stirring behind the scenes on your behalf. One influential friend in particular might be at the heart of it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- An old friend might offer to pair you with someone who could be of enormous help in an endeavor that you’re trying to launch in the near future. Take him or her up on it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Listen attentively when someone wants to tell you his or her thoughts about making some improvements on something meaningful to you. Sometimes, good ideas can come from strange places. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Something that you’ve learned the hard way from a tricky past experience is likely to prove to be of immense value in keeping you from harm’s way. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Don’t be resistant to changes taking place over which you have little or no control. If you use your head and make the right adjustments, what transpires will be to your advantage. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Find out what your mate has to say before seeking counsel from friends and associates. She or he might have a greater depth of understanding on how to deal with the matter. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Because you’re likely to be extremely imaginative as well as practical, your chances for having a successful day are excellent. It’s a winning combination that gets it done. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Don’t despair if your social calendar hasn’t been what you’re used to. Some major changes socially are in the wings, waiting to be released to create some fun happenings. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- A new opportunity of substantial proportions will manifest through an individual with whom you’ve shared previous success. It looks like a winner. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Do not discount any urges you get to do something different. Once you get into it, you might find it to be one of the more enjoyable things you’ve undertaken in a long time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You’re in a cycle at present where most things in which you want to engage will be financially feasible, so take advantage of this as much as you can. It could give you some things you want. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Don’t be surprised if you start to notice that you suddenly have a stronger influence over your friends than usual. It behooves you to use this to strengthen friendships, not abuse them. MONDAY, JULY 16, 2012 Persons or things that were obstacles in the past will make an abrupt turnabout in the year ahead and serve as bridges to success. It proves that you should be ready for anything, no matter how surprising. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -It behooves you to be as helpful as you can, because it won’t be what you do for yourself but what you do for others that will bring you the greatest gratification. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Give pretentious people a wide berth, because they will make you feel extremely uncomfortable, and you certainly won’t want to match their phoniness. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Take advantage of the strong achievement cycle you’re in, and aim for impressive targets. Shoot high, because even if you fall short, you’ll come out way ahead. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Don’t be indifferent to any hunches, because regardless of which activities you involve yourself in, your actions could be more accurate and helpful than usual. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You’ll have no trouble soliciting appropriate aid to help you do something that you can’t do independently. Many of your friends or associates will be in the right places at the right times. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Much can be accomplished through an independent and effective partnership arrangement. It behooves you to be a team player instead of a loner. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It’s one of those days when you’ll be able to perform physical tasks more effectively than you’re able to manage mental ones. Give your muscles a workout and your mind a rest. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Even if you’re finding that the odds are slightly in your favor when it comes to situations that have elements of chance, it doesn’t give you license to take foolish risks. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Don’t be overly concerned about handling a problematical development, should one occur. You are needlessly worrying about things that may never happen. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -If you get all your correspondence done early on and put whatever else you can in proper order, you’ll make things a lot easier on yourself for the rest of the week. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Because money matters look like they could turn out to be reasonably positive for you, it’s time to put your mind to work on something that could be financially profitable. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your independence could be of greater importance to you than usual, and even though normally you don’t mind being imposed upon, you won’t like it at present.
