DELPHOS — Delphos Mayor Michael Gallmeier swore in the new “Mayor of Marbletown,” John Diltz. He defeated Paula Rodriguez. Diltz was born in Marbletown and recently returned to his roots with his wife, Maria (Klaus). He is employed at Vanamatic, Co., attends St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, is an assistant seventh-grade boys basketball coach at St. John’s Elementary School and is a member of the Delphos Eagles, VFW, American Legion and Coon and Sportsman’s Club. He likes spending time with family and friends and hopes his votes (each $1 raised is a vote) help make
Diltz wins mayor
Why local gas is more expensive
BY MIKE FORD email@example.com DELPHOS — When gas prices climb near $4 per gallon, sometimes overnight, one may suspect “big oil” is price-gouging — especially when Delphos gas prices are often a dime more per gallon than in Lima. There are three entities behind the four local gas stations: one independent franchisee and two corporations. The Point Marathon station is locallyowned by Bryan Hutchison but the Speedway stations are owned by Marathon Patroleum Company of Findlay and the BP station is owned by Circle K, which is headquartered in Arizona. Marathon spokesman Shane Pochard pointed to crude prices, demand and taxes when explaining market fluctuations but would not explain why Delphos is consistently more expensive than stations 15 miles down the road in American Township. However, Hutchison explained that Lima’s gas game is unique. He says retailers there sell fuel at some of the state’s cheapest prices, intentionally losing money to compete. “I grew up in gas stations; I’ve been in this since I was 9 years old. Before I came to Delphos, I ran a Shell station for 8 years out on the east side where the Super Walmart and Sam’s Club can squeeze the independent guys out of business. Many gas stations in Lima intentionally go undermarket, taking less for gas than what they get it for. In my opinion, Lima is oversaturated with gas stations. It’s really cut-throat over there and this is why,” he said. Despite the short distance to less-expensive retail locations, Delphos is viewed by many as a separate market. Pochard said Marathon wants its Speedway stations to be competitive but is focused on Delphos competition. Hutchison realizes local resiMS photo

dents can easily consolidate trips to buy gas in Lima without making a special trip for it. “Being independent, I’m not a market-mover out there trying to undercut everybody but I want to see the market in Delphos come down. I want to match the prices in Lima and I have brought this up but I’m not allowed to match any prices except what is lowest in Delphos according to my fuel contract,” he said. “Marathon wants to keep my doors open but, at the same time, they won’t allow me to compete with Lima. I see gas prices every day — I see them go up and I see them drop. I also see the threshold where people break even or lose money. Lima is often way down into that under-market value. I would love to match it but Marathon won’t support that.” For an independent retailer, gas is simply a draw to bring in customers. Hutchison doesn’t make money on it — snacks, sodas and other items sold inside the store is where retail profits lay. Concerning sudden price hikes, some may wonder if political statements or other news can stimulate gas prices to skyrocket. Pochard refused to comment when asked if there is any such connection. While gas prices may be determined at the corporate level when corporate-owned stores are concerned, prices are locally-set at The Point. “I drive around, or one of my drivers goes out, every couple of hours to keep an eye on gas prices here in Delphos,” Hutchison said. “The thing is, though, there are about 15 steps fuel goes through before a customer puts it into their vehicle; from mining to manufacturing to refining to distribution. So many people have their fingers in it and the retailer doesn’t have much choice. I would love to compete with Lima but my supplier and Delphos competition dictate my prices.”

Kick back and relax in Marbletown today
You know we’re in the last throes of summer when the Marbletown Festival rolls around. The weather is supposed to be perfect today. We have been very fortunate with the weather for this festival. It hasn’t been too hot and it hasn’t rained. (My fingers and the toes on one foot are crossed as I say that.) The neighborhood celebration isn’t just for neighbors. You don’t have to be from Marbletown to enjoy the festival. There’s a 5K, a frog-jumping contest, a parade, corn hole — surely something strikes your fancy. There are several new things this year; we try to do a little something different each festival. Kid’s will enjoy the bounce house And a golf cart/lawnmower poker run thanks to former Marbletown Mayor Susie Teman. And come on, you have to admit, a grilled bologna sandwich and a cool beverage can really hit the spot. Many of you know that my father, Roger Briggs, grew up in Marbletown and his father, Earl Briggs, resided there until he entered a nursing home in his twilight years. The Briggs homestead was on the corner of Clay and King streets. It was a small home with rolling floors and a huge yard with apple trees and a bountiful garden. So, Marbletown has a special place in my heart — the spot where my roots began. To some, Marbletown is a feeling or attitude. Others can site boundaries to the neighborhood making it a place on their map. I’m glad to see the festival has become

a long-standing annual event. I think these kinds of things bring people together and make Delphos a better place to live than many others. A community that comes together to have fun and remember good times from days past is a nice place to be. We learn from history. The events on the schedule for today are simple and fun. They will take you back to a much less complicated time when visiting with neighbors was common and everyone knew everyone. The front porch was the place to be after supper and there was always a hand in time of need. The common thread was people. We are so busy these days and technology races to stay ahead of us. There’s always a faster way to do everything so more things can be done. We don’t take the time to enjoy a conversation or get to know each other anymore. Small talk is tossed around while racing from one place to the next. So head down to Marbletown, grab a steak and watch some corn hole or just sit around and chat and enjoy the day. It’s all good.

Jason Abdo sat alone in court with his hands shackled and a white cloth secured over his mouth and neck. The soldier who went AWOL and plotted to kill other troops outside a Texas Army post remained defiant Friday as he was sentenced to life in prison, not asking for mercy and vowing to never end what he considers his holy war. “I will continue until the day the dead are called to account for their deeds,” Abdo said in a low, gravelly voice through the cloth mask. A federal judge sentenced Abdo, 22, to two life terms plus additional time. The federal prison system offers no chance of parole. He was convicted of planning what he claimed would have been a massive attack on a Texas restaurant filled with troops from Fort Hood. In court, Abdo referred to Maj. Nidal Hasan — the Army psychiatrist soon to be tried in a deadly shooting rampage at that Army post — as “my brother.” He said he lived in Hasan’s shadow despite “efforts to outdo him.” Abdo became a Muslim at age 17. Outside court, prosecutor Mark Frazier said Abdo had come close to carrying out the attack. U.S. Attorney Robert Pitman compared the plot to recent mass shootings at a movie theatre near Denver and a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee.

Police continue search for ‘creeper’ watching women
COLUMBUS (AP) — Police in central Ohio are continuing to search for a man they say breaks into homes to sometimes watch women as they sleep. Columbus police released a map Friday they say shows the latest whereabouts of the “Hilltop Creeper” — a nickname given by officials to highlight the Hilltop neighborhood in the city’s west side where several incidents have been reported. Police say the man is suspected of sneaking into homes through a window, lurking over someone as they sleep and often touching them. Most victims appear to be women who say the suspect leaves once police are called. Police say more than a dozen incidents have been reported since December, including a surge over the summer months.

New jobs entity files complaint in Ohio high court
By KANTELE FRANKO The Associated Press COLUMBUS — Ohio officials hope a complaint filed Friday in the state’s highest court could help resolve legal concerns about a new private job-creation entity and clear the way for the agency to get rights to the state liquor business and use the profits. The budget and commerce departments had agreed to transfer those rights to JobsOhio for 25 years in a deal worth as much as $1.4 billion for the state, which gets the first $500 million when the transfer occurs. The budget and JobsOhio leaders signed the transfer agreement this week, but Director of Commerce David Goodman declined to join them. The complaint filed Friday by JobsOhio asks the court to force Goodman to act on the agreement. “We need to spend every minute of every day focused on economic development, and let’s get this taken care of so we can move forward,” JobsOhio President Mark Kvamme said. Goodman said Friday that he fully supports JobsOhio but didn’t feel he could move forward because constitutional concerns raised about the entity and the transfer deal haven’t been addressed by the Ohio Supreme Court. JobsOhio officials said
Lottery cuts support on national spelling bee
ELYRIA (AP) — The Ohio Lottery says it’s no longer paying $115 registration fees for schools taking part in the annual Scripps National Spelling Bee, favoring instead a program that helps gambling addicts. The (Elyria) ChronicleTelegram reports officials cited budget cuts for discontinuing about $178,000 in fees for participating Ohio schools. The agency has paid them since 2008. Lottery spokeswoman Danielle Frizzi-Babb says the agency’s budget for sponsorship programs was cut from $1.7 million in the last fiscal year to $1.5 million. She also says the state has cut the lottery budget to a level similar to 2008. Frizzi-Babb says more funding was needed for a gambling support group as additional casinos open in Ohio. The newspaper reports the agency’s overall revenue in the last fiscal year totaled about $2.7 billion. The Delphos Commemorative Quilt.
Case Western Reserve gets nearly $65M grant
CLEVELAND (AP) — Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland has landed a nearly $65 million federal grant to speed up the development of promising medical breakthroughs. Case announced the grant Friday and says it underscores strong collaboration with research institutions including the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals Case Medical Center. The National Institutes of Health awarded the grant, formally known as a Clinical and Translational Science Award. It’s meant to speed up top laboratory breakthroughs for use in hospitals, clinics and medical offices. The program has 61 research alliances across the country. The Cleveland alliance has worked on obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure.
Hanging in our domestic arts area on the second floor of the museum is the Delphos Commemorative Quilt, a masterpiece of fiber artistry that captures in visual form the diversity and breadth of our city’s past and present. The Canal Commission worked closely with the Black Swamp Quilters of Delphos to make this quilt in 1993-94, and the thought and detail that went into it is nothing short of amazing. Starting from the outside and working toward the center is the following symbolism: The binding is a brick pattern to reflect the bricks used to pave early roads and streets. The outside border contains 48 stars for the 48 contiguous states while all 8 of Ohio’s symbols, from the buckeye tree to the cardinal, are inset in the border. The next border is gray to depict the Miami Erie canal which determined where Delphos would be located. It’s hard to imagine Delphos in a different location now,
A stitch in time
but there were 3 different routes suggested for the canal. Within this border are the American flag, the old Commercial Bank building, a church (representing Delphos’s many churches), Shenk’s first store, the state flag, a cowboy hat and ball bats (Zane Gray played baseball here before he began writing westerns), Miller-Morton Mills (located near Lock 23), kids fishing in the canal, the Delphos flag, the Jennings Creek aqueduct, a canal lock, the Marguerite, a log cabin, the Waterworks pipe stand, and a Canal Commission Angel. Transportation has always been important to the development of Delphos and is depicted in the next quilt block. The border is a railroad track with 88 ties representing our 88 Ohio counties and the blocks are mostly transportation related. There is a Kill Brothers wagon, a map of Ohio canals, the Lincoln Highway with a Gramm truck, the Dienstberger house, a
they’re confident it’s constitutional. Goodman agreed but noted the decision on that is up to the court, not him. “It is imperative to give the Supreme Court the opportunity to address the constitutional questions to clear up any uncertainty and to allow the state to move forward with the transaction and JobsOhio to maximize its resources available for job creation and economic development,” Goodman said. The transfer process has been delayed in part by a lawsuit by the liberal group ProgressOhio and two Democratic lawmakers, Rep. Dennis Murray of Sandusky and Sen. Mike Skindell of Lakewood, challenging whether it is constitutional to turn public money over to a private entity. The 10th District Court of Appeals in Columbus upheld a judge’s decision to dismiss the challenge on the grounds that opponents didn’t have legal standing. ProgressOhio appealed the decision to the state Supreme Court, which hasn’t ruled on that issue of legal standing. Kvamme said he believes that the legal issues raised have kept JobsOhio from fully devoting its attention to job creation and economic growth, and that the new complaint is a step toward completing the transfer and getting back on track.

Child dies, another wounded in shooting
TOLEDO (AP) — Shots fired into an apartment while two toddlers were sleeping on the living room floor killed a 1-year-old girl and seriously injured her 2-year-old sister, police said. Two people fired multiple times through the apartment’s rear sliding glass door late Thursday night, hitting each girl once, police said. The youngest girl was shot in the head and died Friday morning. The other girl was in serious condition at a hospital. Three adults and an infant in the apartment weren’t injured, The Blade reported. Toledo police Chief Derrick Diggs said the shooting happened near downtown at an apartment complex plagued by crime. “Make no mistake, the police department will get
the perpetrators of this shooting,” he said. Authorities were reviewing video from the scene, Diggs said. The suspects walked up to the back of the apartment and began firing, he said.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Republican leaders in the 14th Congressional District selected Geauga County Prosecutor David Joyce on Friday to replace nine-term U.S. Rep. Steven LaTourette on the Nov. 6 ballot. Joyce landed the nomination in a meeting of GOP chairs and central committee secretaries from the seven counties that make up the district, Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Portage, Summit and Trumbull. Joyce, who has served as prosecutor in a reliably Republican county since 1988, has directed the high-profile case against a 17-year-old charged with killing three students in a shooting rampage in February at Chardon High School.

“Don’t wake me for the end of the world unless it has very good special effects.” — Roger Zelazny, American science-fiction writer (1937-1995)
by HELEN KAVERMAN Life in small town America often revolved around church and school. This was true in Fort Jennings. In the beginning the pioneers built a log cabin which served as a church for both Lutherans and Catholics on Sunday. During the week it was the school house for all the kids. Two congregations prospered for many years, until St. John’s Lutheran merged with Continental and some parishioners went to Delphos. There have been other faiths represented in the township in the past. There is a Baptist congregation in Rushmore now. Schools changed from several one room schoolhouses into the magnificent Jennings Local Schools Campus, which was built on Musketeer Drive. (The history of the churches and schools are given in other chapters of this history.) Most of the early settlers were farmers so they started with building little cabins and clearing the land. The trees had to be cut down first, and then they farmed around the stumps. The hoe was their basic implement and corn was their chief crop. Boehmer had been a teacher in the old country. Since there was no employment to be found in this area, he returned to Cincinnati, then to Stallowtown (Minster). In 1837 he married Mary Wellmann, daughter of J. H. Wellmann. In 1838 the new couple returned to Fort Jennings, where “H. J.” built a supply store on the west side of the river, on high ground. There he traded with the Indians and the settlers. Boehmer also built a saw mill and a grist mill along the Auglaize River, near where the Memorial Hall now stands. Later he taught school in Fort Jennings. The building which houses “The Fort” is among the oldest in town. It was built by the Raabe family, and served as a grocery and merchantile

The Memorial Hall also housed the Fort Jennings Branch of the Putnam County Library for a short time. It sat empty for several years until its rebirth in 2011. During the months that followed many volunteers restored or renovated the hall to be ready for the Bicentennial. The hall also houses a military museum.

When the Putnam County District Library opened in 1924, Mrs. B. A. Miehls told the library officials that it was doubtful that Fort Jennings residents would use the County Library because of the poor roads and the distance between Fort Jennings and Ottawa. She said they would be more inclined to use the Delphos Library. Prior to the opening of the branch library, the county established various substations in 1942. The district also served the area with the bookmobile. The branch library was the idea of Mike and Barb Phillips, members of the Fort Jennings Jaycees.

By JIM METCALFE email@example.com to be the standard-bearer this fall after the offense lost a number of top-notch skill players and linemen, Carpenter was not pleased. “We’re disappointed with our defense,” he explained. “We have to realize we just can’t show up and expect to intimidate teams. I hope we learned that lesson and won’t have to learn it again.” After the junior varsity units both had two 10-play series with no scores, the varsity took the field for their turn. After the Blue Jays had their 10 plays go nowhere, Elida received a touchdown pass from new quarterback freshman Logan Alexander to senior receiver Brandon Stinson. St. John’s junior fullback Luke MacLennan popped for a 1-yard run on their next series. After Elida’s second series went nowhere, the team’s took turns with situational work. The first was the offenses starting at the opponent’s 35 for 10 plays and neither offense could score. Then they had chances starting at the opponent’s 15 for six plays. St. John’s scored twice: a 15-yard MacLennan run and

In addition to Warnecke’s 37, other Musketeer golfers included Josh Wittler (47), Nate German (50), Collin Wieging (51), Luke Luebrecht and Bret Clay (55), Nick Von Sossan (57), Alex Ketcham (62) and Alex Sealts (63). Jacob Roebke led the Bulldogs with a 41, followed by the 47 of Kody Griffith, 50 from Clay Diller, 51 from Logan Diller, 56 by Tony Koch, 59 from Nick Schroeder and the 67 of Brandon Hoffman. Fort Jennings is in the Delphos Country Club Invitational/TeeOff Classic 9 a.m. Monday. Grove is at the Colonial Golfers Club Tournament (hosted by Allen East) 9 a.m. Tuesday in Harrod.
ELIDA — Both St. John’s football head coach Todd Schulte and Elida counterpart Jason Carpenter know what scrimmages are all about, especially the first one. They want to see what their players — many of them starting for the first time on the varsity level — will do when thrown against “live” competition. They both saw what they wanted to see — good and bad — as the team’s competed in their respective opening scrimmages of the 2012 season on a generally cloudy morning at Roger Kraft Memorial Stadium in Elida. “It’s good to go up against a player with a different jersey. It’s also good to go from practice speed to game speed and see how quickly you can adjust,” Schulte acknowledged. “We have a lot of new faces in the starting lineup and Elida’s going through the same thing. No matter how hard and how fast you try to practice with, it’s never quite what you see against another opponent. We got better as it went along.” With his defense expected
a 4-yarder. Elida countered with a 15-yard TD toss from Alexander to Stinson. Both offenses then had chances starting at the 20 before going into game situation (1st-and-10) from the 20. The only score came on an 80-yard run by junior Blue Jay tailback Tyler Jettinghoff. “As you normally expect for a first scrimmage, we had some positives and some negatives,” Schulte added. “We can go back to the films and see where we made mistakes and set to work on them. We definitely have a long way to go but we also had some good play overall. It was about what you anticipate with so many youngsters. We have almost our entire offense in; we have to fine-tune it.” Carpenter was more pleased with his offense. “We are a work in progress but we had some positives,” he added. “Our offense is in the same boat this fall as the defense was last fall: young and inexperienced. We have to get back to work this week. Our goal is to be better next week, week 1 and so on.” Both teams return to action Friday: St. John’s at Celina (7 p.m.) and Elida at Edgerton (8 p.m.).
Crites set to pace Bearcat duffers into 2012
By JIM METCALFE firstname.lastname@example.org SPENCERVILLE — Spencerville’s golf crew had a pretty successful 2011, finishing 20-7 overall and 14-4 in the Northwest Conference (good for thrd place). Four of the guys that were a part of that crew is back for eighth-year head man Mike Harmon (106-66 overall, 73-45 NWC) for the Division III Bearcats. Plus, Harmon has less options this time around as he only has six golfers on this edition after having nine last fall. “Our strength is our desire to get better and learn the game. Evan Crites has a lot of experience and is hungry for a trip to Columbus this fall,” Harmon began. “Each golfer on the team has his own individual strengths which we hope to continue to improve on. We have good team chemistry.” The senior Crites (40.3 stroke average over 9 holes) comes off a first-team NWC performance in 2011 and enters his fourth varsity season as the leader of this crew. Junior James Schaad (49.2) is back for his third season. Rick Brunswick and Kasey Lee used up their eligibility last fall. “Rick was much improved last year and was a big part of the team. He ended the season as second-team all-NWC,” Harmon noted. “Kasey’s are working on some swing changes and consistency with the guys.” In the NWC, Harmon picks Lima Central Conference, the Bearcats and Allen East as tops. Minster and Van Wert, along with LCC, are among the area’s best units. “Our goal is to win every time we play but play the game properly and with etiquette; I expect us to be pretty competitive in most of our matches. We should finish in the few teams in our league; Evan’s goal is to win conference player of the year and to compete in the state tournament and I expect him to make a pretty good run at it,” he added. “I think any one of our young golfers could surprise us this year. Golf is a funny game; any kid who really gets the golf bug is capable of putting in the extra time it takes to improve. I think we have several guys who will greatly improve over the first several weeks of the season. James and Mitchell hopefully will be a big surprise. James left off last year working hard and has continued to do so this summer. I expect Mitchell to immediately contribute to the team. “We have a good group of kids and will improve as the season goes by and our guys gain a little more experience. We will be pretty competitive with the other teams we play this season.” Spencerville opened its season at the 10-team Indianbrook Golf Tournament Friday by finishing sixth.
By JIM METCALFE email@example.com Elida duffers expect stellar 2012 ELIDA — Based on its season-opening victory in Friday’s inaugural 10-team Indianbrook Golf Tournament, Elida’s expectations for the 2012 campaign might be justified. Long-time head man Denny Thompson (28 years, 1,030733 mark) comes off a 53-56 edition (4-5 in the Western Buckeye League, good for 7th) that finished seventh in the Division I sectionals. Leading the way in the coach’s final season at the helm are the top six back from last season: senior Ian Haidle (40-per-9-holes average in 2011; fourth year), senior Mike Lawler (41), senior Aric Thompson (43), junior Nate Cellar (43.5), sophomore Jimmie Ebling (45) and junior Trent Cutlip (46.6). As well, senior Bryan Romey is back as a part-timer. “What we do well is we have become a group that wants the team first. I don’t expect any surprises this year except that I hope Ian really has a solid year because he has worked very hard this summer,” the coach added. “We need to work on two things: being consistent and working on the skill shots. “It has been a long time since we have had experience like this; we return everyone, anchored by Ian. I hope that we can return to the top tier of teams in the WBL. Mike and Aric are also in their fourth years of varsity and Nate is a third-year varsity starter. I hope that helps make my final season a successful one.” Elida will next play in the Rob Contini Memorial Tournament at Hawthorne Hills. Tee-off is at 8 a.m. Monday. ----Cougars returning 5 to the links VAN WERT — Van Wert links coach Jeff Hood begins his fourth season at the helm (28-8 dual mark) with five lettermen back from last fall’s runner-up Western Buckeye League crew (10-1 dual mark; 4th in the sectional). This crew will be paced by district qualifier and allWBL Jacob Brake (senior; 39.4 9-hole average), along with fellow WBL honorees Tyler Turnwald (senior; 40.5) and sophomore Brandon Hernandez (41.6). Also back are junior Justin Price (43.0) and classmate Adam Jurczyk (45.9). See PREVIEWS, page 7

DeRosa giving soccer campers his expertise
By JIM METCALFE firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — The United States is trying to catch up to the rest of the world in terms of soccer — what the world calls futbol. The Delphos Soccer Association is one of those groups trying to help that process along. This past week, the St. John’s Annex was host to Riccardo DeRosa from Wales as part of the Challenger Sports Soccer Camp for the Ohio Region. The program brings British soccer coaches to the United States. “The program advertised for coaches and I had to go through an interview process. I got the job,” DeRosa said. What he and his fellow coaches from the island nation teach is all part of a plan. “We have a curriculum that we use. All week, we’ve had two camps: from 9 a.m. to noon, we had ages 5-7 and we only had three players in that one; from 12:30-3:30 p.m., it’s 12 and over and we had seven,” DeRosa explained. “I or our other coaches — there are at least 70 in the Ohio Region — have been involved in camps before that might have as many as 200 campers with several coaches; the average I find is from 30 to 40. I actually prefer this one: it’s a blessing because I can give each camper more 1-on-1 instruction. “We use such as the 1,000touch program . We teach them fakes and turns, dribbling, passing, shooting and heading the ball. We even have them juggling the ball and doing flicks. Then we have a scrimmage in the end. We really try and give them a good feel for the ball, about working and controlling the soccer ball. I have found
that the campers here this week are as skilled as I have seen this summer.” He explained that there are four age groups within the Challenger program: First Kicks (ages 3-4); MiniSoccer (5-7); Half-Day (8-15); and Advanced (16-plus/high school). “A lot depends on the individual skill level of the campers. Just because someone is in the Advanced age doesn’t necessarily mean they are put there,” he said. DeRosa comes from having played the game for 18 years — ever since he was 4 — on the futbol-mad island nation. “I played for numerous teams. One was called the Welsh School Boys, a national side, and there were others that — understandably — most people in America wouldn’t know about,” he continued. “I will stay in the US for six weeks before heading back home. This weekend, I will held for Creston — south of Cleveland — for another camp. Each contract is different: coaches can say for six weeks and up to 11. “I’ve been staying with Nate Ankerman and his family.” Though he may not be playing much anymore, DeRosa is still heavily involved in the game. “I come from Wrexham and I am teaching at a private school in Repton after completing university. I am fortunate that this school has a team because many private schools don’t; I will have my own 15-and-under team and we will play on the weekends,” he added. “If I get the chance again to come to the States and have more camps, I will gladly come over and do the same. A lot will depend on whether it interferes with my schedule but I hope it happens.”
(Continued from page 6) “We return the strongest team on paper in the WBL; can we handle the pressure of being the favorite is the question. Jacob and Tyler are 4-year varsity golfers; their leadership will determine whether they can keep the younger players in the bottom of the lineup on track,” Hood observed. “Our top three should be as strong as anyone in the area. There is plenty of competition to fill the remaining three spots. Adam and Justin both played in significant number of varsity matches last year.” Hood has a few options to fill out the sixth spot and
provide further depth with the likes of senior Robbie Trittschuh, junior Lucas Etzler, sophomore Alex Miller, sophomore Nathan Ireland, freshman Jacob Covey, freshman Nick Etter and classmate Lane Mansfield. “As far as the newcomers, Luke and Rob should be in the mix. Alex is a possibility as well,” he added. “I’m very excited about the possibilities in the WBL as well as our invite and tourney season.” The Cougars commence 2012 Monday (9 a.m.) at the Defiance Invitational. ----Lady ’Dawgs loaded
with experience on the hard courts ELIDA — Quinn Whittaker has been the head coach two previous years for the Elida girls tennis team, with last year’s group ending up 5-11 (3-6 in the Western Buckeye League). He returns a handful of starters to this year’s edition and has another handful that earned letters as well. “The girls have been working hard year-round and we are looking forward to a successful, winning season. We have many returning JV players as well who continue to build and strengthen our pro-
gram,” he asserted. Returning as starters are Lauren Greeley (senior), Erin Kesler (senior), Hailey Hurst (junior), C’era Savage (sophomore) and sophomore Ashley Fay. Other veterans Whittaker can call upon to replace departed starters Robin Klaus, Abby Orians and Monica Tieu are Elizabeth White (junior), Patrice Yumul (junior), Jensen Green (sophomore), Jenna Mekolites (sophomore) and Summer Slusher (sophomore). Elida starts Monday (4:30 p.m.) at Lima Central Catholic.
The Associated Press LONDON — The U.S. had a big lead when Carmelita Jeter got the baton for the anchor leg of the women’s 4x100-meter relay on Friday night. She knew exactly what to do with it. Jeter powered down the stretch and pointed the baton at the clock as she crossed the finish line, celebrating a world-record time of 40.82 seconds that gave the Americans their first victory in the event since 1996. Tianna Madison, 200meter champion Allyson Felix, Bianca Knight and Jeter combined for a perfect trip around the track that ended a string of disappointments for the U.S. in the marquee relay. Their final time cut more than a half-second off the old record of 41.37 run by East Germany in 1985. Jamaica (Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Sherone Simpson, Veronica CampbellBrown and Kerron Stewart) won the silver medal in a national record of 41.41 seconds. The American team was in control in the men’s 4x400 relay until Ramon Miller of the Bahamas chased down Angelo Taylor on the anchor leg to grab his country’s first gold in a race won by the U.S. in every Olympics since 1984. But the silver helped the United States run its lead in the medals table to 94-81 over China. The South African team, anchored by double-amputee “Blade Runner” Oscar Pistorius, fell behind well before Pistorius received the baton and was eighth. Turkey’s Alsi Cakir Alptekin (women’s 1,500 meters), Ethiopia’s Meseret Defar (women’s 5,000 meters) Russia’s Tatyana Lysenko (women’s hammer throw) and France’s Renaud Lavillenie (men’s pole vault) were the other winners at Olympic Stadium. BASKETBALL Kevin Durant and the U.S. men’s team also had quite the closing kick in their semifinal against Argentina. Durant scored 19 points and LeBron James did a little bit of everything as Team USA pulled away for a 109-83 victory and a spot in Sunday’s final against Spain. Argentina trailed by four early in the second half when the United States put the game away behind the strength of James and Durant’s shooting ability. Durant made two 3-pointers in an 8-0 spurt that pushed the lead to 13, and when Argentina got back within eight, the NBA’s MVP and runner-up teamed up to blow it open. WRESTLING Jordan Burroughs had his eyes on a gold medal for months and let everyone know about his plans. Then he delivered. The 24-year-old American backed up all that talk, beating Iran’s Sadegh Saeed Goudarzi 1-0, 1-0 in the men’s 74-kilogram freestyle division to give the U.S. its first wrestling gold in London. Burroughs, who grew up in New Jersey, has won 38 straight international freestyle matches and is the first Olympian to claim the $250,000 prize from the Living the Dream Medal Fund, a program designed to support U.S. wrestling. Dzhamal Otarsultanov won the men’s 55-kg freestyle category, beating Vladimer Khinchegashvili of Georgia to give the Russians four wrestling golds. BMX Maris Strombergs of Latvia defended his BMX title over a harrowing course in Olympic Park, taking the lead at the start and never relinquishing it. He cruised across the finish line in 37.576 seconds to add to the title he won in Beijing, when the sport made its Olympic debut. Former world champion Mariana Pajon won the women’s competition, giving Colombia its first gold at the London Games. SWIMMING Ous Mellouli of Tunisia won the grueling 10-K race to become the first swimmer to win medals in the pool and open water at the same Olympics. Mellouli pulled away from a small group of leaders in the fifth of six laps and finished in 1 hour, 49 minutes, 55.1 seconds in the murky waters of the Serpentine in Hyde Park.

The two young men stayed at Suever’s for 3 days, and then decided to head home. With that Suever phoned Heinl’s Bar and told them the boat was coming home. Alex Heinl ran across the street to the shoe shop to get Franz Geier and he got the town band together and went to the river. Then Rabbit Burkmeyer and Speedy Bertling stepped in for Paul Revere and ran down the street opening the doors and shouting “the boat is coming in.” Rudy & Gilbert Wieging were in the hardware store with their dad.

The storm caused moderate damage north of town. Several residents reported that terrible “freight train” sound pass over their homes. It took a barn down on Road 20. The “Big Storm” hit most of Ohio on June 29, 2012. The winds were hurricane force. Jack Berelsman watched his boat get picked up off the pond and go flying by the barn. Many residents remember the “big snows”. The 1945 (or 46) snow storm was one to remember because there was “no school” at Fort Jennings, and much of Putnam County for the whole month of January. It was “wonderful” and didn’t have to be made up like the calamity days do in this day and age. There were

went through Fort Jennings. Back in the old days the mail arrived by train. The earliest known route through western Ohio was the Auglaize River and the foot path along the west bank of the river. The trail ran from Defiance in Northwest Ohio to Fort Jennings, Fort Amanda and other points south. General Anthony Wayne and Lt. Col. William Jennings traveled this route. On this road in 1829, the first mail was carried on horseback once a week between Piqua and Defiance. This road became known as the Defiance Trail. In Putnam County it is known as Road 23-T, south of Fort Jennings and Road 22-K, north of St. Rt. 224. The Intersection of St. Rt. 190 and St. Rt. 189 is on Water Street in the heart of

This information was provided by the Putnam County Cemeteries, Jennings Township. Seniors at FJHS have traditionally received an assignment to do a memory book. These prove to be very interesting. One young lady wrote the following paragraph about her hometown. “One of my favorite things about Fort Jennings is the size of the school. You would never be able to go to a big city school and have all the students know you by name and will talk to you; and the teachers are always willing to help you, no matter what. Another thing I love is how everyone in town knows almost everyone else, and

Fun ways to give kids a leg up for the school year
StatePoint — Children will soon be headed back to school and it’s important to prepare them for the year ahead. As the educational landscape grows increasingly competitive, even the smartest students need an edge. With today’s hectic lifestyles, however, it can be difficult for parents and kids to find the time for enrichment. “Turning your regular activities into a learning experience can go a long way towards getting kids ready to go back to school,” says Kim Tredick, a 5th grade teacher in Santa Clarita, CA, and the 2006 Milken Award Winner. “Just be careful to make the learning fun and not too much like schoolwork.” Here are some cool ways to clear those cobwebs in preparation for a new school year: Making the most of downtime Be sure time away from school includes a good dose of intellectual enrichment. Museums, nature centers and historical sites should be a staple of your leisure time and weekends. Take advantage of time in the car or downtime in general. Whether you’re waiting for dinner to be ready, or you’re on a lengthy road trip, use learning tools like Brain Quest, a question and answer game to make the time both fun and educational. Because the materials are curriculumbased, the decks and workbooks will give kids a direct leg up on next year’s curriculum. “Kids don’t necessarily want to think about being in the classroom when they are away from school, but educational games such as Brain Quest, can actually make prepping for the school year fun,” says Tredick. “Let the kids quiz you while cooking or driving as they’ll learn as much from asking the questions and it doesn’t feel like homework.” More information and free downloadable activities can be found at www.BrainQuest.com. Reading and writing Give your children a variety of materials to read, like cookbooks, chapter books, nutritional panels, newspapers, magazines and movie schedules. Then test their understanding by summarizing what they read. Let them read aloud to you, siblings, neighbors and grandparents every day. Children can practice writing and help you at the same time by composing grocery lists, to-do lists and car directions. Encourage them to keep journals and correspond with relatives — both with handwritten letters and emails. Help improve their writing by editing together, paying attention to capitalization, punctuation and spelling. Everyday math Math is everywhere, so use it to your advantage. Cooking together from a recipe is a fun and practical way to learn about measurements, timing, and following directions. When you’re out shopping, ask your kids to mentally add the total at the grocery store. This will be a lesson both in how money works and basic arithmetic. Work a percentages lesson into your day by having them calculate the sales tax at the register, or calculate the tip at restaurants. School may not be in full swing yet, but savvy parents can help jumpstart their kids’ minds well before their first assignments.

The Herald – 11
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, AUGUST 12, 2012 Some of the greatest rewards and benefits you’ll receive in the year ahead are likely to come from endeavors that turn out to be very difficult to launch. However, if you are persistent, you will reap a significant harvest. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t be caught flatfooted. Be prepared to make your move at a moment’s notice, when you notice momentum starting to pick up. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- In order to make a critical decision, you must be able to weigh and balance all the alternatives available to you. Don’t ignore any unpleasant facts. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Review your goals carefully, because several objectives that you thought unreachable could be well within your grasp. Don’t waste any time -hit the bricks! SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Don’t be hesitant about asserting your authority when you believe a certain situation warrants it. Anything that you don’t control can just as easily jump up and take over. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- Some kind of domestic situation that has caused you and your family considerable discomfort can be improved upon today by openly discussing it with all concerned. Don’t hold anything back. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There is a huge difference between seeing what you want to see and looking at things realistically. You need to view life objectively without being morose about it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you are anticipating certain remuneration for a service rendered another, you had better spell out the terms in writing beforehand. It’ll avoid any misunderstanding later. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Try to keep uppermost in your mind that certain activities should be engaged in just for fun and relaxation. Do not take yourself or the events of the day too seriously. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -There is no need to have any qualms about your presence being felt. All you have to do is put yourself out on behalf of others and you’ll be both noticed and appreciated. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- When you want to sway others to your way of thinking, make sure you’re discussing something in which you truly believe. If your enthusiasm is halfhearted, no one will care. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can improve your material position in life if you go after your goals with all your enthusiasm and vigor. This includes being dedicated, realistic and totally focused. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Painful lessons you’ve learned in the past will now give you an edge over your competition. Keep those experiences in the back of your mind when negotiating something big. MONDAY, AUGUST 13, 2012 There’s a good chance that you might have to take on some additional responsibilities and work a bit harder than usual in the year ahead. However, your efforts are likely to be justly compensated. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If a friend helps you work your way through a critical problem, be sure to acknowledge the efforts that he or she put forth on your behalf when others ask how you did it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Avoid taking a side, no matter how hard others try to make you do so. Once the lines are drawn, it could be extremely difficult to get out of your position if and when you want to. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be careful how you respond to the barbs of your peers, so that you don’t end up being labeled a poor sport. Both your personality and image are more vulnerable than usual. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you should encounter a friend who holds opposing opinions equally as strong as yours, avoid all volatile issues. It’s possible that you both have chips on your shoulders. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It behooves you to be a bit more security-conscious than usual regarding your prized possessions. Leave nothing lying around for others to take. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It’s always wise to analyze things before taking action, but you could go overboard and cause yourself to be so picky and indecisive that you get bogged down. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Wanting to be kind and helpful to others is admirable, but you must be careful not to let people who are capable of fending for themselves burden you with their baggage. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Say “no” and mean it if some of your peers attempt to entice you into doing something that doesn’t serve your best interests. Maintain your high standards and morals. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Depression could consume you if you permit yourself to believe that everything works out well for everybody but you. Believe me, you wouldn’t want to change places with others if you could. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Volatile subjects, such as politics and religion, need to be avoided, because they could easily get out of hand and lead to heated exchanges. Stick to lighter subjects. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Run and hide if you see a person coming toward you who is always borrowing something from you but never returns anything. Be smart and let history guide you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Check out what another knows before you allow him or her to make an important decision for you. Don’t just assume that this individual has all the facts at hand.

Farmers expect poorest corn crop in a decade
By JIM SUHR The Associated Press ST. LOUIS — A deepening drought in the nation’s farm states has cut further into this fall’s harvest, with farmers now expected to pull from their fields the lowest corn yield in more than a decade. But American farmers are still expected to produce their eighth-largest harvest ever, and while there’s sure to be a rise in prices at the grocery stores, there’s little risk of a failed harvest that would lead to shortages on the shelves. The U.S. Agriculture Department predicted the nation’s biggest harvest ever in the spring, when farmers planted 96.4 million acres of corn — the most since 1937. But it cut its estimate a month ago and again Friday, saying it now expects the nation to produce 10.8 billion bushels, the least since 2006. If that estimate holds, the federal government says it will be enough to meet the world’s needs and ensure there are no shortages. But experts say food prices will almost certainly climb as corn is a widely used ingredient found in everything from cosmetics to cereal, colas and candy bars. The drought stretching across the U.S. from Ohio west to California is deepest in the middle of the country, and major farm states like Iowa and Illinois are seeing conditions get worse each week. Farmers credit advances in seed technology that have produced hardier, more drought-tolerant corn for any harvest at all. “I have to be honest with you, I’m totally stunned we have corn with green stalks and leaves after going through weeks of 105-degree temperature,” said Garry Niemeyer, the National Corn Growers Associated president who has 1,200 acres of corn and 800 acres of soybeans near Auburn, Ill. “Our corn yield normally would be about 190 bushels per acre. This year, if I get 110, I’d be thrilled to death.”

Chavez: American detained in Venezuela
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — President Hugo Chavez said Venezuelan authorities have detained an American man and are interrogating him, suspecting he could be a “mercenary” plotting to destabilize the country if the opposition loses the upcoming presidential election. Chavez told reporters on Friday that under questioning the man said he had been a U.S. Marine. “The man has military training and he refuses to give information. That in itself is suspicious,” Chavez said on state television. Chavez did not identify the man nor detail the accusations against him. But the case has the potential to ratchet up longstanding tensions between Venezuela and the U.S. less than two months ahead of Venezuela’s presidential election. Chavez said the man was detained while crossing into Venezuela from Colombia on a bus in the middle of the night. He said the American had entered the country illegally. Chavez announced the man’s Aug. 4 arrest on Thursday night, saying he was carrying a U.S. passport with entrance and exit stamps from countries including Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. A U.S. State Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly, said the U.S. government had not been notified of the arrest by the Venezuelan government. He said that if the detained man is in fact a U.S. citizen, American officials expect “Venezuela will uphold its obligations under the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and grant U.S. consular officials access to any detained U.S. citizen without delay.” Chavez suggested, without offering evidence, the American might have been recruited by government opponents to instigate violent protests if opposition presidential candidate Henrique Capriles loses the Oct. 7 election. Opposition lawmaker Pedro Pablo Alcantara scoffed at the president’s allegations that government foes would attempt to stir up trouble if Chavez is re-elected to a new six-year term. Alcantara accused the government of encouraging violence against its adversaries in the past while backing groups that have attacked opposition marches. “It’s the president who has promoted violence,” he said. Chavez has repeatedly accused the U.S. government of plotting against him during the past decade, though he usually has provided few specifics of such claims. The U.S. Embassy in Caracas has been without an ambassador since July 2010. Chavez rejected the U.S. nominee for ambassador, Larry Palmer, accusing him of making disrespectful remarks about his government. That led Washington to revoke the visa of the Venezuelan ambassador. Chavez said on Thursday that when the man was detained, he tore up part of a notebook that he had with him. “He has all the appearance of a mercenary,” Chavez said at a campaign rally on Thursday. “We are interrogating him.”
“I have to be honest with you, I’m totally stunned we have corn with green stalks and leaves after going through weeks of 105-degree temperature.”
— Garry Niemeyer, the National Corn Growers Associated president The USDA’s latest estimate predicts corn farmers will average 123.4 bushels per acre, down 24 bushels from last year in what would be the lowest average yield in 17 years. But the yield would still be as good as nearly a decade ago, when the average was about 129 bushels in a year without drought. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack trumpeted the resilience of U.S. farmers and ranchers on Friday, saying he didn’t expect immediate increases in food prices and was optimistic the U.S. would continue meeting global demand for grain. The U.S. is the world’s top exporter of corn, soybeans and wheat. “Americans shouldn’t see immediate increases in food prices due to the drought,” Vilsack said during a trip to drought-stricken Nebraska. “What is important going forward is that we continue to do all we can to help the farmers, ranchers, small businesses and communities being impacted by this drought.” But experts have already been predicting increases in food prices. Rick Whitacre, a professor of agricultural economics at Illinois State University, said he believes the greatest impact will be in meat and poultry prices, given that many ranchers have sold off
livestock as pastures dry up and feed costs rise. The selloff will result in lower prices through December with a glut of meat on the market — but higher costs beginning next year. Whitacre predicted an eventual 4 to 6 percent increase in the cost of pork and beef. “You’re going to see the ripple of this go out for quite a distance,” he said. The effect on packaged goods and other products is harder to predict because the price of corn may be only a small part of the total cost. For example, even with today’s high corn prices, a 12-ounce box of cornflakes would have only about 8 cents worth of corn, said Paul Bertels, vice president of production and utilization at the National Corn Growers Association. That’s a very small portion of the $4 or so consumers might pay for that box of cereal. Dennis Conley, an agricultural economist in University of Nebraska’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources, said he expected to see nominally higher prices in U.S. supermarkets, although when “is the million-dollar question.” He thought it might be a month or two before products using corn as an ingredient cost more. Corn prices have already been going up with steady reports of worsening drought and crop damage, jumping from just under $6 a bushel in late June to over $8 a bushel in early August. There was little immediate effect from Friday’s report, perhaps because the commodities sector expected the bad news. “There was nothing really surprising. We’ve already had some private analysts suggesting the crop could be that low,” said Mark Schultz, chief analyst at Northstar Commodity in Minneapolis. “In another two weeks there will be people picking corn in Indiana, Illinois, Iowa. So we’ll start getting an idea of what these yields truly are.”
1873 dime sells for a pretty penny: $1.6 million
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A dime made in 1873 has cost someone a pretty penny: It sold for $1.6 million at auction. An anonymous bidder won the pristine coin, said Chris Napolitano, president of Stack’s Bowers Galleries, which auctioned it during an American Numismatic Association convention. With a 15 percent buyer’s fee tacked on, the final price for the coin was $1.84 million, he said. The rare coin was minted in Carson City, Nev., during a one-day run of dimes. “Generally speaking, in the coin auction business, you might get a couple of people fighting each other” as they bid, he said Friday. “On this one, we had four or five buyers over a million dollars. We had a fair amount of buyers
Times editor, CNN host suspended for copying other writer’s work
NEW YORK (AP) — Time editor-at-large and CNN host Fareed Zakaria has been suspended by both the magazine and the network for lifting several paragraphs by another writer for his use in a recent Time column. Zakaria apologized Friday, declaring in a statement he made “a terrible mistake,” adding, “It is a serious lapse and one that is entirely my fault.” In a separate statement, Time spokesman Ali Zelenko said the magazine accepts Zakaria’s apology, but would suspend his column for one month, “pending further review.” “What he did violates our own standards for our columnists, which is that their work must not only be factual but original; their views must not only be their own but their words as well,” Zelenko said. Shortly afterward, CNN said it had removed from the network’s website a blog post that “included similar unattributed excerpts,” and taken Zakaria off the air indefinitely. “CNN has suspended Fareed Zakaria while this matter is under review,” said CNN spokeswoman Jennifer Dargan. She said Zakaria’s Sunday foreign-affairs program, “GPS,” will have its
pursuing it.” The 1873-CC “No Arrows” Liberty Seated dime was auctioned Thursday night. It’s part of the Battle Born Collection, which contained one of every coin struck in Carson City before the mint there closed in 1893. All 111 pieces were auctioned off Thursday night, fetching a total of nearly $10 million.

Answers to Friday’s questions: A kakistocracy government is one with the worst of society’s citizens in power. The Oscar-winning score from The Magnificent Seven (1960) was used as background music for Marlboro Man cigarette TV commercials in the 1960s. The movie’s theme was written by Elmer Bernstein. Today’s questions: What were the only four cabinet positions during George Washington’s presidency? What computer device was described as an “X-Y position indicator for a display system” in its inventor’s patent application? Answers in Monday’s Herald. Today’s words: Cuerpo: the body Psychrolusia: bathing in cold water
time slots filled in the interim by “Your Money with Ali Veshi” and “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.” Earlier Friday, media reporters had called attention to similarities between passages in Zakaria’s column about gun control that appeared in Time’s Aug. 20 issue, and paragraphs from an article on the same subject by Harvard University history professor Jill Lepore published in April in The New Yorker magazine. In Zakaria’s column, titled “The Case for Gun Control,” he began one paragraph with the sentences: “Adam Winkler, a professor of constitutional law at UCLA, documents the actual history in ‘Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America.’ Guns were regulated in the U.S. from the earliest years of the Republic.” A corresponding passage in Lepore’s New Yorker essay, titled “Battleground America,” begins: “As Adam Winkler, a constitutional-law scholar at U.C.L.A., demonstrates in a remarkably nuanced new book, ‘Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America,’ firearms have been regulated in the United States from the start.” In Zakaria’s statement, he apologized “unreservedly” to Lepore, as well as to his editors and readers.
