Scrimmage Action, p6
The Delphos Canal Commission and the Ohio Divisions of Canals has scheduled a canal cleanup from 8:30-11:30 a.m. on Sept. 8. Organizations and volunteers are asked to register at the Hanser Pavilion in Stadium Park to be assigned a designated area. Residents around the canal are asked to refrain from placing grass clippings and limbs along or inside the canal. All citizens are asked to spruce up the city for the upcoming Canal Days celebration.
Canal Days wants ‘Oldest Farmer’
The Canal Days Committee would like the public to canvas the countryside for the “Oldest Farmer” in the Delphos area. “Farming is an important part of our lives and very few times do we recognize that side of our community” Canal Days Event Coordinator Diane Sterling said. “We all know farmers. They are our friends, neighbors and they deserve to be recognized. “ The theme for this year’s Canal Days toast to the city is “Little Town, BIG Country.” There’s nothing more country than farming. To enter someone, submit their name, address and phone number and a short essay of 50 words or less to Delphos Canal Days Oldest Farmer Contest, 310 N. Main St., Delphos OH 45833. Include the name and telephone number of the person submitting the entry and the farmer’s name, address, phone number, their age, number of years that person has been farming and approximately how many acres they farm around Delphos. The entry deadline is Aug. 31.

Fort Jennings children joined re-enactors Friday to celebrate pioneer life. The village is celebrating its bicentennial with a schedule of events outlined below. teach the children a lesson Native Americans can teach everyone,” Netz said. Netz, who had the children making medicine pouches reminded them the importance of nurturing. “When we lay seeds on rocks they do not grow,” explained Netz, “but when you put them in the ground and nurture them and show them care, they grow and we reap the benefits.” Netz, who has been traveling for 35 years over America and Canada, also performed a traditional Native American dance and song in which all watching got to participate. The children then separated into groups and went to the stations located all throughout Fort Jennings Park. Each station educated the children on the facts of life and war as it was two centuries ago. A group of eager kindergartners started their journey to 1812 with lessons on how to start a fire with flint and steel. Other groups began with the fur trade as Scott Grant channeled the days of yore while explaining the many uses of furs from animals from raccoons to beavers. A fan favorite was the infantry lead by “volunteer militiaman” Mike Judson. Judson began the training with basics such as standing at attention and presenting arms. Judson then demonstrated the proper way he loads his rifle and soon had has his mini-militia marching around the camp. Another popular camp was the cannon firing range. Each fire of the cannon brought cheers from the young infantry with many request to load the cannon with actual cannon balls- their requests were denied. However, some of the privates-in-training found the blast to loud for their liking. “That was too loud,” said Bryce Gusser who spent the remaining time at artillery with his hands firmly grasped around his ears. Other lessons were in textile, hatchet throwing, basket weaving, Native American studies and more. It was more than just children taking in

Kimmel: keeping the peace in the parks
BY STACY TAFF email@example.com
DELPHOS — If anyone has fished in a local park and had a park ranger inquire about their fishing license, it doesn’t necessarily mean there were suspicions of breaking the law. Richard Kimmel is an enforcement officer with Johnny Appleseed Metro Parks. He says it’s just a way to get a conversation going. “If it’s an area where a fishing license is required, I’ll use that as a way to break the ice. Even if I don’t think
there’s been a violation, it’s just a good way to get that dialogue started,” he said. “A lot of what I do involves talking to people, checking in and making sure everything is going well and there aren’t any problems. If there happens to be a violation, enforcement is the last action we want to take. If we can educate them and let them off with a warning instead, we’ll do that. We will cite them if we have to but only when there’s no other option.” See PARKS, page 3

The Gomer school has been its own district, an elementary school, fourth and fifth grade school and a kindergarten school over its nearly-100-year history. The building and property will soon go up for auction. Those who roamed it prior to its entry to Elida Local Schools in 1969 remember what it was like to be a Bobcat before their children were Bulldogs.
Gomer school to be auctioned
BY MIKE FORD firstname.lastname@example.org GOMER — With hope their beloved school will find continued-life at an upcoming auction, those who were once Gomer Bobcats remember when this community had its own school district. Built in 1914, the former Sugar Creek Township/ Gomer school had a vibrant life of its own before dissolving into the Elida school system in 1969. Retired educator Dave Smith, 73, graduated Stacy Taff photo from Gomer High School in Johnny Appleseed Metro Park Enforcement Ranger 1956. He fondly remembers Richard Kimmel hands pencils out to the Jenner family, of the days of Gomer’s red and Spencerville as he makes his rounds through the parks. white letterman jackets. “I went 12 years at Gomer and was a guidance counselor when they consolidated,” he said. “I’m a Bobcat forever.” After becoming a Redskin at the University of Miami and earning a master’s at the University of Indiana, Smith invested more than 30 years educating the children of Sugar Creek and American townships. He remembers how their parents and grandparents felt about the transition from Bobcat to Bulldog. “Being part of the faculty at Elida at the time of the consolidation, you sensed the older people — ones I knew — didn’t like it because they didn’t want

to lose their school. There was a rivalry between Gomer and Elida when I was growing up and we were putting the two together. Some of them didn’t like that. Back then, each community had its own school tied in with its identity. So, it was very hard for them to accept but there were advantages for the students because Elida was big enough to offer a lot more, academically,” he said. The merger was driven by very small class size. Smith’s graduating class consisted of 14 students. He said the class ahead of him only had eight. See GOMER, page 3

The power of social media never ceases to amaze me. It’s like the old shampoo commercial: and they told 2 friends, and they told 2 friends … Well, with Facebook, it’s more like this: and they told 500 friends, and they told 500 friends …. Many of you have heard of the Baptist church in Kansas that sends its members out to protest at the funerals of those who have died for their freedom to do so. It’s kind of ironic if you think about it. A local hero’s funeral made their list and it spread like wildfire through Facebook and Twitter. If you read it carefully, it does not say they are coming here. It is an invitation for those who share the same mindset to show up if they are so inclined. I’m sure they have people whose job it is to scour obituaries all over the country for servicemen and women. The group has made national news many times for its demonstrations at funerals. I have a hard time watching them without getting a little ticked myself. To me it seems so disrespectful in any case. Loved ones are trying to find closure. This is the final moments the family has with their loved one. It shouldn’t be marred by people who don’t have their best interests at heart. Those last moments

Fire evacuees in Washington and California return home
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Hundreds of people in Washington and California who fled encroaching flames from wildfires were allowed to return to their homes Friday, and in Washington many were to find out whether their property was spared by a huge blaze that burned out of control for much of the week. “Some people will find their homes there and others will find homes damaged or even lost,” said Mick Mueller, a spokesman at the fire command center. Meanwhile, some residents of rural central Idaho were told to evacuate by late Friday as blazes continued to burn throughout the West. In Washington, people were returning to the south and east sides of the 35-square mile Taylor Bridge Fire near the town of Cle Elum in the Cascade Range, about 75 miles east of Seattle. The 22,700-acre fire was about one-third contained on Friday. “The folks will have to be working among fallers dropping hazardous trees and utility crews working to get the power back on in there,” Mueller said. “And firefighters are still working in there trying to put out hot spots.” About 900 firefighters with eight helicopters continued building a line around the fire. The fire broke out Monday at a bridge construction project and exploded through dry grass, brush and trees. Authorities said Friday the blaze had burned 48 residential properties and 15 other structures on the east side of the Cascades. The fire burned
Unemployment rates rose in 44 US states in July
WASHINGTON (AP) — Unemployment rates rose in 44 U.S. states in July, the most states to show a monthly increase in more than three years and a reflection of weak hiring nationwide. The Labor Department said Friday that unemployment rates fell in only two states and were unchanged in four. Unemployment rates rose in nine states that are considered battlegrounds in the presidential election. That trend, if it continued, could pose a threat to President Barack Obama’s re-election bid in less than three months. Nationwide, hiring improved in July after three months of tepid job gains. But the national unemployment rate ticked up to 8.3 percent from 8.2 percent. Monthly job gains have averaged 150,000 this year. That’s barely enough to accommodate population growth. As a result, the unemployment rate is the same as when the year began. Still, 31 states gained jobs in July, while 19 lost them. Unemployment rates can rise in a state even when more jobs are created if more people start looking for work. People who are out of work are counted as unemployed only if they’re looking for a job. In the most closely contested states in the presidential race, unemployment has fallen over the past year. That could help Obama in his contest with GOP candidate Mitt Romney. But it has started to tick up in recent months. In Nevada, the rate rose to 12 percent in July from 11.6 percent the previous month. That’s the highest rate in the nation, though it’s still much lower than a year ago, when it was 13.8 percent. And in Michigan, the rate has increased to 9 percent, from 8.5 percent two months earlier. Unemployment also increased in Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Colorado, Wisconsin and New Hampshire. The rate was unchanged at 7.2 percent in Ohio, the only swing state that didn’t suffer an increase. Still, that rate is down sharply from 8.9 percent
a year ago. Most competitive states have unemployment rates below the national level, so even recent increases may not have a large impact on voter sentiment. Iowa’s unemployment rate, for example, increased to 5.3 percent, still the sixthlowest in the country. New Hampshire’s rose to 5.4 percent and Virginia’s increased to 5.9 percent, both far below the national rate. Only four swing states have higher unemployment rates than the national figure: Nevada, Michigan, North Carolina at 9.6 percent, and Florida at 8.8 percent. Some battleground states reported large job gains that could lead to lower unemployment rates in coming months. Michigan added 21,800 jobs, the second-largest increase in the nation, after California. Michigan’s gains were mostly in manufacturing and government. Virginia reported the third-largest increase, 21,300, mainly in education and health care.
Ohio execution set for 3rd time
CINCINNATI (AP) — For the third time in a decade, the Ohio Supreme Court has set an execution date for a death row inmate convicted of killing a Cleveland man in 1986. Gregory Lott’s execution had been scheduled in 2002 and 2004, but he won last-minute stays both times based on two different arguments — that he was mentally disabled and that the prosecution in his case failed to reveal key evidence proving his innocence. Both arguments ultimately failed, and the Ohio Supreme Court on Friday scheduled the 51-year-old’s execution for March 19, 2014. “It’s time for Mr. Lott to be executed,” said Cuyahoga County assistant prosecutor Katherine Mullin. “He has certainly had an extensive period of time and opportunities to litigate his claims, and they’ve all been denied. It’s time for justice to be served, both for the victim’s family and the citizens of Ohio.” Lott’s Columbus defense attorney, Gregory Meyers, did not immediately return a call for comment. Lott was convicted of attacking and setting fire to 84-year-old John McGrath in his Cleveland home on July 15, 1986; McGrath died in the hospital eight days later. Lott’s first execution had been set for Aug. 27, 2002,
on the north side of Interstate 90. More than 400 people evacuated. Firefighters hope to have the fire contained Sunday. But the National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning for high wildfire danger in effect through today night on the east side of the Cascades. In addition to the hot, dry conditions, there’s a chance for dry thunderstorms today evening with lightning that could start more fires. “We’re kind of on edge about that,” Mueller said. In other states: — Idaho authorities have told some Custer County residents to evacuate by Friday afternoon because of a nearing wildfire. To the south, in Elmore County, firefighters were still working to protect two threatened towns from another huge blaze. The Custer County sheriff’s office issued an evacuation notice Thursday night, warning residents from Sunbeam Store to Loon Creek Summit that if they don’t evacuate by 5 p.m. Friday officials cannot guarantee their safety. —In California, hundreds of people who were ordered to leave their rural homes because of San Diego County wildfires were being allowed to return. State fire officials said evacuation orders were lifted Friday for about 400 people in the communities of Ranchita and San Felipe. Flames came within a halfmile of some houses but none burned. ——— Associated Press writers Doug Esser in Seattle and Jessie L. Bonner in Boise, Idaho, contributed to this report.

The following is a weekly report concerning construction and maintenance work on state highways within the Ohio Department of Transportation District 1 which includes the counties of Allen, Defiance, Hancock, Hardin, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert and Wyandot. Allen County Interstate 75, Lima, at Fourth Street and Reservoir Road bridge replacement projects will have the following impacts to traffic in the coming weeks. Work is being performed by Eagle Bridge, Sidney. The bridge replacements are Phase 1 of a 3-phase project which will reconstruct Interstate 75 from the Auglaize County line to just north of Ohio 81, including the city of Lima. Work on the mainline of Interstate 75 will not begin until 2013: Fourth Street over Interstate 75 closed February 27 until late fall for a bridge replacement project.
On Monday, the entrance ramp from Fourth Street to I-75 southbound, and the exit ramp from I-75 southbound to Fourth Street will be closed for 45 days to allow for soil stabilization, drainage work and paving on the ramps. Following the Labor Day holiday, the entrance ramp from Fourth Street to I-75 northbound, and the exit ramp from I-75 northbound to Fourth Street will be closed for 30 days. Traffic on I-75 in the area of the bridge will be maintained, two lanes in each direction, during the ramp closures with occasional nighttime lane closures necessary. Reservoir Road over Interstate 75 closed May 1 until late fall for a bridge replacement project. As part of the project, Bryn Mawr Road from Reservoir Road to Elm Street also closed May 1 until late fall. Interstate 75 northbound from Breese Road to Ohio 65 reduced to one lane through the work zone on Tuesday for pavement repair. The restriction will be in place until 11 a.m. Interstate 75 southbound from Ohio 81 to Ohio 309 reduced to one lane through the work zone on Wednesday for pavement repair. The restriction
will be in place until 11 a.m. U.S. 30 from Ohio 65 to Ohio 696 is restricted to one lane through the work zone for a pavement repair and resurfacing project which will continue through November. Putnam County Ohio 613 between Putnam County Raod 5 and McComb will be restricted to one lane through the work zone for a pavement repair and resurfacing project which will continue through early November. Ohio 115 between Vaughnsville and Kalida will be restructed to one lane through the work zone for smoothing of pavement bumps. Ohio 65 north of Ottawa is now open. Ohio 65 at the north edge of Leipsic will be closed Monday for three days for a railroad crossing repair. Traffic detoured onto Ohio 613, Ohio 108 and Ohio 18 back to Ohio 65.
in what was to be the first execution scheduled after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the death penalty was unconstitutional for mentally disabled killers, saying it amounted to cruel and unusual punishment. The Ohio Supreme Court granted Lott a stay of execution, but his argument eventually was rejected after two experts found that he was not mentally disabled. His execution was rescheduled for April 27, 2004. Five days before his new execution date, a threejudge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati granted him another stay, deciding 2-1 in favor of Lott’s petition to have a federal court decide whether he deserved a new CLEVELAND (AP) — trial. Lott’s attorneys argued The winning numbers in that Lott didn’t get a fair Friday evening’s drawing of trial, saying the prosecutor the Ohio Lottery in the case withheld evidence Pick 3 that would have proven his 6-2-9 innocence. That evidence included Pick 5 McGrath’s description to 9-2-5-5-2 police of his killer. On his death bed, McGrath said the Rolling Cash 5 man who killed him was a 04-20-24-26-36 light-skinned black man with long hair; Lott is a mediumto dark-skinned black man with very short hair. U.S. District Judge Kathleen O’Malley eventually rejected Lott’s claims GOOD NEWS and said he didn’t deserve a REALLY new trial.

cers from the department of natural resources but we try to back them up when we can.” The parks are open from sunrise until sunset. Kimmel says the rangers need to be ready to handle calls about trespassers at night. “The sheriff’s department covers for us after we’re done for the day but one of us always has to be on call,” he said. “We’ll get calls about people sneaking in and fishing after hours or people drinking in the park. That’s where the enforcement side comes in. It doesn’t happen too often though, thankfully.” Johnny Appleseed Metro Park District prefers its rangers have an associate’s degree dealing with law enforcement or natural resources in addition to their law enforcement certification. “It’s not a requirement but it helps us have a better understanding of what we have to do,” Kimmel said. “The hardest part of the job is just finding the time to keep up with all of the changing laws and the continuing education you need. When you’re working a 40 hour week it can be hard fitting that in and keeping up with everything else you need to get done.” At the end of the day, Kimmel isn’t bothered by the paperwork, bad weather or potential for confrontation with lawbreakers. For him, working outside makes all complications worth it. “I love being outdoors. That’s my favorite part, not being stuck in an office all day,” he said. “Getting to stay outside and talk to people is really nice.”
(Continued from Page 1) Some parks require rangers to be certified peace officers, also known as law enforcement officers. Johnny Appleseed is one of these parks. “My job is a cross between game warden and law enforcement officer,” Kimmel said. “We need to know about wildlife and natural resources but we’re also sworn officers with arrest powers. We have seven parks and some preserves, 13 pieces of land total that we patrol.” “When on patrol I make field contact, answer calls and check in with people who have rented out the facilities to make sure things are okay,” he continued. “If we have bad storms we get a lot of calls about damage. If there are any trees down blocking paths or trails we call the maintenance rangers. They also have to be sworn officers because as a small park district, we all share responsibilities. Sometimes they help out on the enforcement side and sometimes we’ll help out with maintenance.” One of the things Kimmel enjoys about his job is there’s never a typical day. As if to prove this, Kimmel receives a call about someone needing a wild falcon removed from their building. “It’s probably just a young Peregrine that was chasing a mouse or something and got stuck in there,” he said. “This happens quite frequently; people find unwanted animals in their buildings and don’t know what to do, so they call the parks. This is something that’s usually handled by the wildlife offi-
COLUMBUS (AP) — Secretary of State Jon Husted suspended two election officials on Friday in southwest Ohio after they approved a measure to extend early voting hours beyond the uniform, statewide hours he set this week. The move by Husted, the state’s chief elections official, is the latest in a series of flare ups over when Ohioans can cast an early ballot in person in the presidential battleground state. The issue has essentially broken down along political party lines. Husted, a Republican, sent a letter late Friday to Democrats Thomas Ritchie Sr. and Dennis Lieberman, telling them they failed to act consistently with his directive. “You therefore leave me no choice but to begin the process necessary to remove you as members of the Montgomery County Board of Elections,” he said. Husted instructed Ritchie and Lieberman to appear at his office Monday for a hearing on why they shouldn’t be removed from the board. Husted ordered all 88 county election boards on Wednesday to have the same early voting hours on weekdays and to close on weekends and he set that voting schedule. Ohio is one of 32 states, plus the District of Columbia, that allow voters to cast an early ballot by mail or in person without having to give a reason. Prior to his directive, local election boards made up of two Republicans and two Democrats were setting their own early, in-person voting hours. Weekend and evening hours varied among the counties. In his role as chief elections official, Husted breaks any ties. Lieberman made a motion at the board’s meeting Friday to uphold Husted’s directive and extend voting hours into Saturdays and Sundays. He and Ritchie voted in favor of the extra hours, and the two GOP members opposed the motion. That sent the matter to Husted to break the tie. He said Friday he backed the hours laid out by his directive.
(Continued from Page 1) Regardless, the transition wasn’t easy from the outset. Marty Thomas, 58, was one of those who experienced it first-hand. “I was a freshman when the schools consolidated and there was a lot of uncertainty at the time because nobody had gone through that before, that we knew of,” he said. While Smith remembers expanded academic opportunity brought on by the merger, there was also an athletic advantage that came with being in a bigger school. “My brother and I got to go out for football because of it; Gomer didn’t have football but Elida did,” Thomas recalled. Thomas said Elida was crowded for a while. It already housed high school and junior high grades, prior to taking on those who came over from Gomer. The middle school was built in 1981 and Gomer remained open as an elementary school for grades K-5 for many years. At different times, it has housed just fourth and fifth graders and only kindergarten students, depending on need based on crowded space at Elida Elementary School. However, the age of the building makes it costly to continue using, so Elida fifth graders will be at the middle school this year to make room for kindergartners next door at the elementary and Gomer will be placed on the auction block. Superintendent Don Diglia was an Elida student in the early 1970s. He remembers Gomer kids sporting their red jackets with the white “G”
Group opposes ballot measure
COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s largest farm organization is opposing a fall ballot issue seeking to change the way Ohio draws congressional and legislative districts. Ohio Farm Bureau trustees made the decision Friday. Executive vice president Jack Fisher said trustees feel the proposal fails to make government more transparent, ethical and accountable to rural voters. They called for conducting a thorough review aimed at improving the current system. The redistricting measure will appear as Issue 2 on the Nov. 6 ballot. It would shift power for drawing political maps from state elected officials to a citizen board. The issue was prompted by complaints that Republicans who controlled the recent once-per-decade process gerrymandered lines in their party’s favor. The GOP says it drew fair lines. The Bureau represents 214,000 members statewide.
on his school bus. He started teaching at Elida in 1979 and has always respected what Gomer brought to “Bulldog Country.” “The Gomer building has been part of our community, it seems, forever. We’ve tried to maintain it’s own identity, at least as long as I’ve been here, and it will be very sad to see it go,” he said. Like Smith, Thomas also invested more than 30 years in education that included work in the Elida district. He understands the Gomer building is in the same situation the old high school was. “I’m a realist and I understand change is inevitable. People in my generation accepted the consolidation years ago; I graduated from Elida, my three kids graduated from Elida, I taught there and was the athletic director for a while. I am sorry to see the Gomer building go but we had to tear down the high school, so I think we understand these things just happen,” he said. The former Gomer Elementary School will be open to the public for tours from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Sept. 8. The furniture will go be auctioned on Sept. 15 and the building and property on Sept. 22. This includes the large baseball diamond adjacent to the school. The building and land were appraised at $56,000 and the reserve bid is $50,000.
Most people take for granted the buildings that house post offices. When you visit the Museum of Postal History in Delphos you can view several artifacts that relate to the building of the Delphos Post Office in 1933. It is a magnificent structure and was built in a rather short time frame - they began in March and completed the building in November of that same year. It was built with some local materials such as lumber from Horine Lumber Company on S. Clay Street. Bricks came from Putnam County. The sandstone, granite, marble and terrazzo floors came from a different part of the country. The original glass windows above the box section in the lobby were their major source of ventilation. While the skylight that can still be seen on the roof provided much needed light. Unfortunately during the energy crunch of the 70s, the ceiling was placed over the opening. Next time you are in downtown Delphos go across the street and take a good look at the building. That massive pine tree in the corner of the lot was about half that size while I served as the postmaster of Delphos. Then step inside and look at the ceilings, marble floors and walls and the beautiful wood trim. If it hadn’t been for the accessibility issues and the lack of space to expand, the Delphos Post Office was a great place to house the museum. That being said you have to look at our building also located on North Main Street. It is a mighty structure - two stories high made with concrete cinder blocks for the interior walls and three layers of brick for all the exterior walls. It was built in 1902 as a horse livery.
You will find a mural of how our building appeared back then. It is the backdrop for our Rural Delivery exhibit that houses our 1906 Harrington Rural Coach. Over its lifetime this building has served as a implement sales store, a city recreation center, the Fraternal Order of Eagles Lodge, a bar, restaurant, and now finally a museum. This museum belongs to Delphos, not one individual or even a small group like our board of directors. No, it has been part of the history of Delphos since 1993 when we had the 60th anniversary promotion. That was the first step in developing a quality attraction. Before I continue to discuss the history of one more beautiful structure I need to make all of you aware of our current status at the museum. As many of you may remember, we had the front of the building completely renovated including opening up the windows, removing the awning, and restoring all the beautiful designs that span the entire width of the building. Many years ago previous owners had to deal with deterioration of the brick that was being damaged by the wind and rain. They chose to cover the brick with a layer of stucco. At the time it solved the problem. But now, the stucco has been falling off the building exposing the deteriorated brick and at night you could actually see the interior lights shining through the brick. This was approximately a $10,000 unexpected expense. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to our museum. Or if you prefer, join us on one of our trips around the country. The cut off date for joining our New York Trip is
quickly approaching - less than two weeks away. To reserve your seat, just make a deposit of $100 per person now so that you experience New York City like no other group will ever have the chance to do. Getting back to history, the “old Post Office Building” in Washington DC, is another beautifully constructed building. With its bell tower and observatory, it is the second tallest structure in DC behind the Washington Memorial. Serving as one of the many homes for the US Post Office Department Headquarters, it was constructed over a 7 year period from 1892-1899. Also until 1918, it was the main post office for the entire city of DC. In 1928 plans were developed to demolish the building, however, with the start of the Depression just one year later, the building was spared due to the lack of government funds. Over the next 35 years it served as the home of several government agencies. After over 30 years, once again demolition was recommended. In 1964, the President’s Council on Pennsylvania Avenue recommended removing everything but the clock tower. As a result, local citizens banded together and, with the help of Nancy Hanks (the politically influential chairperson of the National Endowment of the Arts), convinced Congress to reverse its decision. Realize that this massive building was 10 stories tall, took up an entire square block (~380,000 square feet). Next time you are in D.C., stop have lunch in the massive atrium, doing a little shopping in the fine boutiques, and take a ride up to the top of the tower and get a wonderful panorama view of this amazing city.

IT WAS NEWS THEN
Dienstberger Band plays in plane with motor shut off. An “Aerial Orchestra” is a musical innovation which has been started by a Delphos boy, Carl Dienstberger, whose musical organization includes two Delphos men, Richard Ulm and Wm. Wimmindinger. While laying at Fremont, Mr. Dienstberger and his players gave exceptional concerts by ascending in an airplane and playing selections while in the air. The plane would ascend to a good height and the motor would then be shut off so that the music could be heard and a selection would be played while the lane coasted. So far as is known this is the first time in the history of the United States that a musical organization has given a concert from the air. Delphos Herald, Sept. 16, 1926 ---------Makes elaborate costumes for the stage A former Delphos resident and graduate of Jefferson High School has gained fame in her chosen field, that of making elaborate costumes for the stage. The superiority of her work merited a half-page spread in the Charlotte Observer on July 5. Mrs. Robert (Carlita) Gemin, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Paul Eleyet, 904 W. Jefferson St., has a particular specialty - Elaborately beaded and appliqueed costumes - and she makes hundreds of them each year. Mrs. Gemin, who has a studio in her home, designs and makes about 500 costumes a year for the Charlotte dancing school, suits for the Carolina Plowns, high school majorette outfits, luau costumes for private customers and some costumes for the Carrousel parade. Actress Julie Newman wore the latest “Carlita Creations,” in the musical theater’s production of “Damn Yankees.” She was commissioned by the theater’s Sarah Brook. Mrs. Gemin’s son Butch, was an extra in “Carrousel,” and introduced his mother to Miss Brook. Mrs. Gemin got started in costume work when her daughter, Marsha, then four, needed a costume for her first dancing recital. Her latest creation for her daughter, now 12, is a long white satin gown elaborately trimmed with cut sequins and jewels. It took her three weeks of steady sewing by hand to bead the dress. Marsha will wear it in this year’s parade. Most of her designing and sewing skills were self-taught. She said, “I really got interested in all this through my mother, who did expert sewing and other handicrafts.” In addition, Mrs. Gemin’s resumes include a graduate accountant and an accomplished singer. “And, an excellent wife and mother,” adds her husband. Delphos Herald, July 18, 1962 ---------Museum gets collection of World War I materials A fine addition to the local museum is expected to arrive in Delphos within a few days. John H. Wahmhoff, curator of the museum, Monday afternoon, received notice of the shipment from Columbus of a collection of World War material which was captured from the enemy.
Roaring 20’s news
A list of the articles which are in the shipment was enclosed: Five bayonets, sawteeth, Five bayonets, plain, One canteen, infantry, One canteen, medical, One cartridge case, Two steel helmets, One maxim, 1908, machine gun, One machine gun tripod, Two Mauser magazine, 1898 rifles, Two German Mannilichor, 1888 rifles, Two Mauser repeating rifles, 19711884, Three miscellaneous rifles, Two sabres. These items will be displayed in the Remlinger Drug Store window. Delphos Herald, Sept. 28, 1926 ---------Strikes out fifteen men Delphos came through with a win at the expense of the Lima Independents Sunday afternoon in the first game of the five-game series which is to be played by these two teams. Ten innings were necessary to decide the issue and the fans were given a treat all the way. Three hits in the second inning gave Delphos its first run. From that time until in the ninth, both teams blanked. Delphos threatened repeatedly but were unable to put across another run. Horne was holding the enemy hitless and mowing them down regularly. In the ninth inning, with two men down, the Lima fans began to leave. Then, however, the fireworks started and an error and a hit netted one run sending the game to a tie and into the extra inning. The fans returned to their seats and prepared to enjoy some extra session. The hopes of the Lima contingent, however were dashed when their favorites failed to count in the tenth and Delphos came through with the run needed to win. Horne, the International league pitcher who was on the firing line for Delphos, provided deep dark mystery to the Lima players. Only two hits were made off his delivery by the Lima team, both of them singles. Final score, Delphos two, Lima one. Delphos Herald, Sept. 27, 1926 ---------Whippet start test run here A novel test to determine the power and economy ability of the Overland Whippet is being conducted by Delphos Overland Co., local representative for Overland and Willys-Knight motor cars this week. On Tuesday afternoon a Whippet sedan was started from the local salesroom, with the gears locked in high. This car is being run 12 hours a day covering the city of Delphos and all of the neighboring towns. At the same time that this gear test is being made, the local dealers are holding a daily series of tests, open to all local drivers, to determine who can drive this car the farthest on a quart of fuel. This test opened on Tuesday and the record established that day was made by Herbert Mericle who drove 5 3/10 miles on one pint of fuel. The high gear test is a new one for motor cars in this vicinity and is a good test of the flexibility of the car since ordinary driving in traffic requires the use of the entire range of gear changes.
— Judge Learned Hand (1872-1961).
Window to the Past
The sealing of the gears on the Whippet is such as to prevent any possibility of gear change so long as the test is under way. The gears were sealed by Mayor Lea Sure who will break the seal at the end of the run. Delphos Herald, Sept. 22, 1926 ---------Allen County officers raid home east of Delphos A fine of $1,000 and costs was assessed against S.C. residing near Tourist Park east of Delphos, Wednesday morning as a result of a raid which was made at his home Tuesday night at about 11:30 o’clock. Allen County Deputies Musser and Rise paid a visit to the C. home Tuesday night. A party was in progress there at the time the officers state, most of the participants being from Delphos. Included in the number were two of three women and one of them. C. was the only one placed under arrest. Four or five cases of home brew, two twenty-gallon jars of home brew ready for bottling, and a gallon of wine were seized, according to officials. C. was taken to Lima and was given a hearing there Wednesday on a charge of possessing illicit liquor. He pleaded to the charge and was assessed $1,000 and costs. (How much would this be in today’s rate? R.H.) The heavy fine, due to the fact that this was a second offense. Further investigation will be made in the case, as it is alleged that minors have been frequenting the place. A number of complaints have been received and the raid was made as a result. Delphos Herald, Sept. 15, 1926 ---------Lima Locomotive delivers engines The Northern Ohio railroad now has one of its large new road engines now in service and will soon have a second one running on the line, Engine No. 400 started for its first trip over the east end of the line, being used on through freight train No. 97. Engine No. 401 was delivered to the road Thursday night The two engines were built by Lima Locomotive works for the northern and are much larger and heavier than anything previously used on the line. For the present, they will be used only between Akron and New London because this line has been improved with stone roadbed and heavy steel rails. They have put in the crushed stone roadbed in this area, and within a year or two the improved roadbed will be extended the entire length of the road. When this has been accomplished, the heavy engines will run into Delphos. Two large new viaducts have been built at Medina and Akron to provide for the use of these heavy engines.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
By KATHLEEN PARKER WASHINGTON — The period of the American Revolution coincided with publication of Edward Gibbon’s “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” (1776), and ever since we’ve been vigilant for signs that the U.S. was following in Rome’s footsteps. There’s no need to exhaust the already exhaustive list of parallels. But as we approach the political conventions, and are already worn down by ceaseless partisan bickering, the mind easily finds its way to Rome’s Coliseum, where powerful political families sought to entertain, pacify and distract the multitudes. We may no longer feed Christians to lions, but the operating premise feels fresh enough. Keep attention riveted on the circus and people may not notice their discontent. Or the corruption in their midst. Says Gracchus to Falco in “Gladiator:” “Rome is the mob. Conjure magic for them and they’ll be distracted. Take away their freedom and still they’ll roar. The beating heart of Rome is not the marble of the Senate, it’s the sand of the coliseum. He’ll bring them death -- and they will love him for it.”
The public’s tolerance for blood was somewhat heartier in those days. We don’t literally slay our political opponents. Our weapons are more discreet -- coded words and strategic messaging rather than swords and tridents. Bloodletting of a higher order. Similarities otherwise are plentiful. During the heyday of the empire, as today, only the very wealthy could run for high office. Aiding and abetting our chosen few are scores of handlers, bundlers and private funders. The widespread fear of corporate control of the political system under Citizens United turns out to have been a lesser threat than a few individuals wreaking havoc or imposing their own utopian vision by writing checks large enough to fund small nations. At least one needn’t worry long about principle, given that whatever designs are in play will be largely ignored and/or quickly forgotten. Such is the attention span of the populace, which, through a collision of economic realities, complex issues, and the amped-up expectations imposed by new technologies, has lost the ability to focus long on anything. Lost for good is time to consume and cogitate at a pace that permits much
All roads lead to Rome
Point of View
sense. In this environment, the politician’s imperative is to say as little of substance as possible and to say it often. For the media, in perpetual competition for buzz, blog traffic and twitter feeds, the mandate is to say as much as possible, as often as possible in a steady stream of consciousness. At the end of the day, a few honed and shiny nuggets will have embedded in the collective psyche. But is anyone the wiser, and will the best candidate win? Will substance prevail, or will the war of words so baffle and mystify that the legions will cast their ballots for the candidate who most resembles them? Or for the person whose words somehow managed to penetrate the wall of noise that surrounds us all and push just the right button? Mitt Romney had that dog on top his car that time. Can’t vote for him. Barack Obama palled around with terrorists. Where was he born, anyway? What day or column
would be complete without a few words from Joe Biden? Latest to the Coliseum, a few (accidental or well-chosen) words from the vice president: Romney’s plan for financial regulation will “put y’all back in chains.” Biden, who often slips a few IQ points when he drops below the Mason-Dixon line, was addressing a mixed-race audience in Danville, Va. Was he free-associating? Did the vice president see African-American faces and reflexively think of slavery? Or was he just being Joe? Once in South Carolina, trying to establish a common bond with his audience, Biden said that he, too, was from a slave state. Way to connect, Joe. Already, the consensus seems to be that, aw, you know Joe. He’s just a bluecollar boy from Scranton who speaks his mind, is all. Besides, say Democrats, Republicans started the metaphor by saying they wanted to unshackle the private sector. Biden was simply extending the metaphor. Whatever the case, the point has been made, the suggestion placed, the people have been distracted. And so it goes ... and so it went. And they conjured magic, and they took away their freedom, and the mob roared.

Jays, Wildcats finish football preseason tuneups Friday
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ delphosherald.com Both Jefferson and St. John’s finished their preseason tuneups Friday night in their final scrimmages Friday night. First, Jefferson took on new-look and defending Division VI state champion Marion Local at Booster Stadium in Maria Stein, then the Blue Jays finished up at Celina. The Wildcats fell 14-7 against the Flyers in a series and two quarters of action, while the Blue Jays lost 34-21 in three quarters and then won the junior varsity quarter 18-12. In Maria Stein, both teams had the usual 10-play series and both offenses: the Wildcats in their base-’I’ attack and the Flyers in their new spread attack; moved the ball but could not score, with Jefferson senior safety Drew Kortokrax getting a pick. Once it went to 24 minutes of game action, the Flyers scored first on a 5-yard touchdown pass at 8:47 of the first and the point-after-touchdown (with no live rush). The Wildcats tied it with a score — set up by a pick from junior Austin Jettinghoff — on a 12-yard TD toss from quarterback Austin Jettinghoff to classmate tight end Ross Thompson and Jettinghoff added the PAT at 3:14 of the first. “I felt we played good defense. We had no tape to watch to prepare for Marion, with them going to a spread, we had to play more vanilla coverages because there are more than a few different ways to play the spread,” Jefferson coach Bub Lindeman said. “Outside of a couple of missed tackles in space, I thought we handled it pretty well. It also gives us an early look at that offense. I felt we improved a lot from last week to this week.” Marion got the winning score early in the second on a 28-yard scoring pass. The Delphos defense later on stymied the Flyers on a fourth-and-goal at the 1. Jefferson’s last chance was stopped on a sack on fourthand-4 at the Local 34. “Offensively, I felt our offensive line played very well, even when we went to the shotgun. Plus, this was a better defense we faced this week,” Lindeman added. “We played with good effort and intensity and that is what you are really looking for during scrimmages. Now, the goal is to get into a game preparation mode this week and get better each day this wee.” Jefferson opens the 2012 season 7 p.m. Friday at Waynesfield-Goshen. St. John’s took a 21-7 lead at the half, getting three long touchdown runs: an 82-yarder from senior quarterback Mark Boggs and a 67-yarder and a 65-yarder from junior fullback Luke MacLennan, while Celina scored late on a touchdown pass. With the Jays playing a lot of their second-teamers most of the third period, the Bulldogs exploded with 28 points in the frame. They got a 38-yard touchdown pass at 5:26 (extra point good), followed by a 1-yard scoring run (PAT) at 2:48, a 15-yard fumble return at 2:40 (missed extra point) and then a 23-yard aerial at the 10-second mark (PAT good). “We had a good first half. We didn’t play as well the third quarter,” St. John’s coach Todd Schulte said. “Part of that was because we are looking to build depth, so we were giving more playing time to our backups and younger players. It’s a long, grinding season and it’s important to find depth, especially in key spots. It’s a chance to get these guys on live game film and we can figure out what we have and they can see it.” The JV Jays then scored on the very first play of the fourth period on a 65-yard pass from sophomore Nick Martz to classmate tight end Tyler Conley at 11:47. The extra point was missed for a 6-0 lead. Celina answered with a 29-yard touchdown pass at

Reds hit 3 HRs in 7-3 win over Cubs
The Associated Press CINCINNATI — Bronson Arroyo hasn’t seen many good second halves in his seven seasons with the Cincinnati Reds, so the veteran right-hander is trying to enjoy this one as much as he can. Arroyo shook off a shaky start, Todd Frazier hit a 2-run home run and Ryan Ludwick and Jay Bruce added solo shots as the Reds beat the Chicago Cubs 7-3 in the opener of a 4-game weekend series on Friday night. Cincinnati, coming off a loss to the New York Mets on Thursday that snapped a 5-game winning streak, began the day leading the NL Central by six games and improved to a major league-best 25-9 since the All-Star break. Manager Dusty Baker liked knowing the Reds would at least pick up ground on one of their two closest pursuers with second-place Pittsburgh playing at thirdplace St. Louis. Arroyo (9-7) has been a big part of the surge, improving to 5-1 in his last six starts. He gave up nine hits and three runs with three walks, three strikeouts and a wild pitch in 6 1/3 innings. Jose Arredondo, Jonathan Broxton and Aroldis Chapman combined to pitch scoreless relief the rest of the way. The Reds had six extra-base hits in five innings against streaky former teammate Travis Wood (4-9), who has lost his last six decisions after winning four straight starts. Luis Valbuena led off the second with his fourth homer of the season and first since June 29 against Houston. His 418-foot fly into the right-center field seats gave Chicago a 1-0 lead. The Reds tied it in the bottom of the inning when Frazier scored from second on Wood’s error as he tried to handle first baseman Anthony Rizzo’s throw on Ryan Hanigan’s grounder. Chicago capitalized on another Reds fielding misplay to take a 3-1 lead in the fourth. After Castro led off with a single and Valbuena flied out, Brett Jackson hit a line drive to second baseman Brandon Phillips that got away from him after he appeared to be distracted by the passing Castro. Castro went to third on what was ruled a single and scored on a wild pitch to Steve Clevenger, who then walked. Wood drove Jackson in from second with a single to center for the pitcher’s first RBI of the season. The Reds then got five runs and six hits in the bottom half of the inning, starting with Ludwick’s 23rd homer of the season, a 425-foot drive into the left field seats on Wood’s first pitch of the inning. Wood hit Bruce with a pitch and Frazier gave the Reds a 4-3 lead by hitting a 2-2 pitch 419 feet into the left field seats for his 16th homer of the season. Cincinnati added two runs
7:32 (missed PAT). Martz hit Zack Fischer for a 15-yarder at 3:58 but the 2-pointer was no good. Celina countered with a 67-yard TD pass at 3:12 but missed the conversion pass. The Jays got the win as Martz found Conley from 13 yards as time expired. “What I didn’t like was that we lost our intensity. That is something that shouldn’t happen,” Schulte added. “We need to learn to play all four quarters no matter who is in there. However, we came out of this scrimmage healthy and that’s a major part of the battle. You don’t want to come into a season with a lot of injuries.” The Jays commence the new season at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 25 against Lima Central Catholic.
Cincy tries to get over loss of playmakers
By JOE KAY The Associated Press third rounds. That’s a lot of playmakers to replace. “To ask somebody to duplicate the production of an Isaiah Pead, I don’t know if that’s realistic,” Jones said. “That’s what we’ve been talking about. This is a new team. We form our own identity. It’s an opportunity for guys that were maybe in the shadows last year or in a role-player role to move up to the next phase, which is a playmaker role. “So, we’re relying on them.” No one is moving into a bigger role than Munchie Legaux. He started three games last season after Collaros broke an ankle, getting a little better as he went along. A true sophomore, Legaux was prone to erratic play — long stretches without completing a pass, for instance. “Consistency,” Jones said, referring to Legaux’s biggest challenge. “Consistency in the pocket. Just maintaining his poise under pressure.” Like Collaros, Legaux is a dual threat, able to run or throw. His accuracy was an issue last season, when he threw for 749 yards with five touchdowns and four interceptions. Until now, he’s been known primarily for his nickname, given to him by his grandparents. When he lost his two front teeth as a youngster, he had trouble chewing and had to munch on his food. The experienced players on offense supported him last season when he was thrown into the starting role. He’s the one taking charge this year. “I need to lead by example and just have a positive mindset, let the whole team see I’m a hard worker,” Legaux said. “When things are going bad or things are going good, they can always count on me to be cool, calm and collected. That’s what I’m working on, to be consistent in my leadership role.” There’s no break-in period. There’s some experience at receiver with Anthony
with two outs on doubles by Arroyo and Zack Cozart and a triple by Drew Stubbs. Wood allowed more runs and hits in that inning than the five hits and one run he allowed in seven innings against Cincinnati last Sunday in Chicago. Bruce hit Wood’s 0-1 pitch 411 feet into the rightfield seats with one out in the fifth for his 25th homer of the season. The streaky Wood, traded with two other players by Cincinnati to Chicago for pitcher Sean Marshall during the offseason, lasted five innings, getting roughed up for nine hits and seven runs — six earned — with three strikeouts. NOTES: RHP Todd Redmond is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Louisville today to start the second game for the Reds in their split doubleheader against the Cubs. Redmond, acquired from Atlanta for INF Paul Janish on July 14, has been recalled three times by two teams this season but he’s still waiting to make his major-league debut.

CINCINNATI — The quarterback and running back are gone. So are the top two defensive linemen. The Cincinnati Bearcats are trying for another Big East title with a lot of players moving up to starring roles for the first time. Are they ready for it? Not even coach Butch Jones can say for sure. Cincinnati went 8-3 last season, won a share of the league title for the third time in four years, then won the Liberty Bowl led by a group of seniors who had been through a lot. Quarterback Zach Collaros is gone after leading one of the league’s top offenses for two years. Running back Isaiah Pead, the top scoring threat, was drafted by the Rams in the second round. Tight end Adrien Robinson went to the Giants in the fourth round. Defensive tackles Derek Wolfe (Broncos) and John Hughes (Browns) were drafted in the second and
McClung (49 catches, 683 yards, 6 touchdowns) and Kenbrell Thompkins (44536-2) returning. Nobody has emerged as a full-time running back, leaving Jones to share the role. Ralph David Abernathy IV, who made his mark last season as a freshman kickoff returner, will get more of a chance in the offense. Abernathy returned 39 kickoffs for a 26.5-yard average, including a 90-yard touchdown in the Liberty Bowl that put the Bearcats in control and showed his ability to run away from defenders. He also carried 14 times for 52 yards last season. Pead could make a move to freeze a tackler and turn a run or a short reception into a big play. Abernathy is trying to become the same type of running back. The Bearcats were picked to finish fourth in the Big East because of their inexperience — 65 first- and second-year players, including 28 freshmen. The offense in particular has to do a lot of growing up.
‘Chase for the Chase’ under way in Sprint Cup
By NOAH TRISTER The Associated Press BROOKLYN, Mich. — Some of NASCAR’s biggest names are trying to keep their championship hopes alive and the Chase for the Sprint Cup is still about a month away. Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch and Jeff Gordon would all be on the outside looking in if the Chase started now. They have four races to change that, starting this weekend at Michigan International Speedway. “We don’t feel there is a better race track on the circuit to come to when we need a win than Michigan,” Edwards said. “We have had a lot of success here.” Edwards has won twice at this track and another victory Sunday would put him in great shape in what Gordon called the “chase for the Chase.” The top 10 drivers advance, along with the two with the most wins who are between 11th and 20th in the points standings. Edwards is 12th in points but has no victories this year. Busch and Gordon have a victory apiece but are 14th and 15th, just behind Ryan Newman for the second wild card spot. Kasey Kahne, who is in 11th place, has two wins and is in line for one wild card spot at this point. Newman is 13th with one victory. Newman said he still doesn’t have any news on a new sponsor for next season and missing the 10-race Chase would be tough to take this year. “We’ve made it and we’ve not made it. When we don’t make it, it’s frustrating to go through those last 10 races,” Newman said. “In the past it hasn’t changed our perspective on the next season. But this year I think it’s a little bit different. It has weight but it doesn’t change the way I race, doesn’t change my mentality when I get in the racecar or when I get out of the racecar. It’s all about doing my job as a driver.” Gordon hasn’t missed the Chase since 2005 and Edwards hasn’t been left out since 2006. Busch has made it the last two years. Busch nearly picked up what would have been a huge victory last weekend at Watkins Glen but skidded wide coming out of a turn on the final lap on an oil-smeared track, and Marcos Ambrose won in a chaotic finish. Ambrose is 17th in the standings, one spot ahead of Joey Logano. Both have a win this year, so they still have hope of reaching the Chase. Edwards finished 11th at Michigan in June and has only two top-10 showings in his last 10 races. A victory this week suddenly puts him in better position for at least a wild card. That could bring about some interesting scenarios late in a race, when teams have to decide how aggressively they’re going to try to finish first. “If you watch some of the restarts at this place, guys sometimes will get a run and it will be three or four or five wide into that first corner,” Edwards added. “I think you might see a lot of that. Those are the things we are willing to risk on more right now than we have in the past.” Gordon won two weekends ago at Pocono but finished 21st at Watkins Glen and trails Newman by 10 points. “We’re just trying to race as hard as we possibly can for each position,” Gordon added. “I don’t get too far ahead. I really live in the moment.” At the top of the standings, there’s another close race. Leader Jimmie Johnson is one point ahead of second-place Greg Biffle, who is only a point ahead of third-place Matt Kenseth. Drivers in the top 10 earn bonus points in the Chase for “regular season” victories but Johnson wonders if there should be more of a reward for the preChase points leader. “You could even work up an argument that there’s some type of bonus points that could be awarded to the regular-season champion that carries over or something in the seeding process,” Johnson added. “You dream up something there that would be nice for the

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Report CENTRAL OHIO Griggs Reservoir (Franklin County) - This reservoir in Columbus provides good fishing for smallmouth and largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie and carp. Target smallmouth bass downstream of the dam in the Scioto River; use small crankbaits and spinners around rocks and other cover. Carp are also abundant in this area; the number of large carp in the reservoir makes it a good place for this species — use dough balls along the southeast shore for good results. Crappie can be caught using minnows or jigs fished around woody cover. For bluegill and other sunfish, try nightcrawlers or wax worms. Licking River (Licking County) - Located east of Columbus, this site provides opportunities for flathead and channel catfish and smallmouth bass. For flatheads, use live fish as bait in pools around woody cover. Use cut bait and chicken livers when fishing for channel cats. When angling for smallmouth bass, fish crayfish, colored crankbaits or spinners in pools and areas with moving water around rocks and other cover. With the current low water conditions, fish the deep end of pools and where pools meet riffles. NORTHWEST OHIO Sandusky Bay (Erie County) - Anglers pursuing catfish and white bass should check this out. Public access can be found at Willow Point Wildlife Area off of Wahl Road. Both species can be caught by tight-lining off of the bottom with nightcrawlers. Fishing access is mostly limited to the shoreline; however, anglers can carry and put in small boats if they choose. The area is closed to all activities other than hunting, trapping and fishing during nighttime. Delphos Gillmor Reservoir (Van Wert County) - With 50 acres of water and over 1 mile of shoreline, anglers should have plenty of room to settle in and catch some bluegill using wax worms fished under a bobber set to 8-10 feet, especially in the evening. A concrete boat ramp suitable for small boats is located on the west side off of Shenk Road.
This is a new reservoir and no courtesy dock has been installed yet. Boats are limited to electric motors only. Oxbow Lake (Defiance County) - Located at Oxbow Wildlife Area, 7 miles northwest of Defiance on Trinity Road. Despite the heat, anglers have still been catching some largemouth bass; try the west rock pier using tube jigs, black artificial worms and spinner baits. Boats are allowed and there is a boat ramp available; however, boats are restricted to electric motors only. NORTHEAST OHIO Lake Milton (Mahoning County) - A break in the heat and the addition of a couple fronts that came through kicked up the walleye action at this nearly 1,700acre lake. Anglers did well trolling X-raps and Hot n Tots along the underwater hump that butts up against the channel just north of Route 76; the fire-tiger coloration was the meal ticket this past weekend. The same pattern should hold true this week with temperatures remaining a bit cooler and a few nice fronts projected. Tappan Lake (Harrison County) - A group of anglers reported some nice surprises while bass fishing this past weekend. Along with hooking into some impressive largemouths, they put some big saugeye in their live wells by drop-shot fishing Gulp Alive 3” chartreuse minnow shad for suspended largemouths near the dam in the early hours when they had several saugeye hookups. Saugeye can be caught casting or trolling and they typically hit twister tails tipped with a minnow or worm harnesses. SOUTHEAST OHIO Dillon Reservoir (Muskingum County) - Largemouth bass fishing has been slow due to high temperatures. However, the use of top-water baits near weed-lines should still produce some catches; try plastic worms in dark colors like purple, motor oil and black, especially late evening, throughout the night and in the earlymorning hours of daybreak when the temperatures are coolest. Some bluegill sunfish can also be caught using small red, wax or mealworms below a bobber. Waters at this area are normally clear but watershed events can modify lake conditions. Catfishing opportunities can be excellent here and in
feeder tributary streams during a water rise after an extended low-water condition; chicken livers, nightcrawlers and cut bait are preferred fished tight-line on the bottom near creek channels. Ross Lake (Ross County) The fishing pressure for channel catfish at this 127-acre lake is generally low, so despite the heat, you can still reel in fish; try tightline from shore using nightcrawlers or chicken livers. While fishing for largemouth bass is most productive in the spring and fall, if you’re up for a little bit of a challenge, they can still be caught in the summer. Picture an imaginary line at the midpoint of the lake between the fishing pier on the east side and the northern-most pier on the west side and you can locate an old submerged “road bed”; try rubber worms slowly along the road bed at 8- to 12-foot depths. Fish are more likely to be moving in early morning and late evening when the weather is cooler. SOUTHWEST OHIO Cowan Lake (Clinton County) - Bluegill are being caught using nightcrawlers or wax worms along woody debris shorelines and pier areas. Channel catfish are being caught using chicken livers, cut bait, shrimp and nightcrawlers cast from the pier area and kept off of the bottom 3-6 feet deep; keep in mind that there is plenty of forage for fish at this time of the year and this can result in lower success while angling. Be patient. Rocky Fork Lake (Highland County) - Bluegill are being taken at 4-8 feet using red and wax worms near shoreline areas with woody debris or submerged trees and brush. A variety of catfish are being caught using nightcrawlers, shrimp, stink and cut bait and chicken livers tight-line along the bottom in 5- to 10-foot depths. As water temperatures cool down, try fishing for saugeye by trolling crankbaits, casting jigs, or drifting with a nightcrawler harness. OHIO RIVER Belleville Pool Area - Anglers after flathead catfish have had good success reeling in sizeable catches throughout the pool by using live baitfish. Channel catfish can still be caught on the typical nightcrawlers or chicken livers; the largest catches of both occur after dark. Black bass species have gotten harder to catch but some are being picked up on deepdiving crankbaits and jig-and-pig combos. Some smallmouth have been caught on Carolina-rigged do-nothing worms.
950 Car Care
Martin wins pole at MIS, his 4th of season: Mark Martin has 55 career Sprint Cup poles, matching the number on his Toyota. His age is only two digits lower — not that it’s much of an impediment for this remarkable racer. Martin posted the top qualifying speed Friday of 199.706 mph on Michigan International Speedway’s still-new surface. It was the fourth pole of the year for the 53-year-old Martin, who is making only his 15th Cup start this season. He entered only two of the previous seven races on the circuit but showed no sign of rust. “I’ve had a few years of practice,” Martin said. “I don’t need a whole bunch of practice, I need a racecar like what I drove today. I need fast racecars.” Martin will start at the front of Sunday’s race in the No. 55 car fielded by Michael Waltrip Racing. Edwards qualified second, followed by Johnson. Edwards sounded almost in awe of the pole winner. “He’s living the dream,” Edwards said. “He’s had a successful career. He’s able to come out here and pick and choose which races he’s going to run and to perform well at them. I think it’s pretty amazing, especially at his age. He’s an inspiration for me, as to how well you can do for such a long period.” Martin won his first pole July 11, 1981. “I had Mark Martin toys when I was a little kid,” Edwards added. “There are generations of people who have all had little Mark Martin toys and who knows? My kids someday might be racing against the guy. And they might be just as frustrated.” The track at MIS was repaved in the offseason and Ambrose qualified for the June race at 203.241 mph, the first time since 1987 the 200 mph mark was broken during Sprint Cup qualifying. NASCAR altered left-side tires for the race that weekend and cars slowed down. Martin’s speed was still easily faster than Newman’s 2005 qualifying mark of 194.232 mph, which was the track record before Ambrose set a new one. Ambrose qualified eighth this time. Dale Earnhardt Jr., who won at MIS in June for his first victory in four
years, qualified 22nd. Martin moved into a tie for seventh with Bill Elliott on the series’ career poles list. It will be his ninth top-10 start this year and he has five top-10 finishes. After racing a full Cup slate the last three years, Martin has cut back in 2012. “The best part of not being at the racetrack is being able to put my arms around my wife, see her and do what I please,” he said. “Instead of meeting a schedule, I just do whatever I feel like doing. It’s a piece of life that I didn’t have.” Martin has two top-5 finishes this season — ironically, he didn’t win the pole either time. This is his first pole in 54 starts at MIS. He did start first in June 1990, when qualifying was canceled due to inclement weather. Tagliani wins Nationwide pole at Montreal MONTREAL — Foiled a year ago by countryman Jacques Villeneuve, Montreal native Alex Tagliani finally has a NASCAR pole. Tagliani, a regular in IndyCar, turned a speed of 96.688 mph Friday evening around the 15-turn, 2.7-mile layout to edge Sam Hornish Jr., the pole winner a week ago at Watkins Glen International. It’s Tagliani’s first NASCAR pole in four races. Last year, he started on the front row alongside Villeneuve for Penske Racing and finished second in the race to Ambrose. Last year, Villeneuve won the pole and held the lead through the first three of six yellow flags but with Ambrose just behind going into a chicane on a restart after the fourth caution, he locked his brakes, went wide across the grass infield and T-boned the Aussie when he came out the other side of the turn. Villeneuve finished 27th, two laps off the lead. Villeneuve will start third this time, giving Penske Racing Dodges the second and third spots. Ironically, Villeneuve will start alongside Danica Patrick, who qualified fourth. At Road America in June, Villeneuve collided with Patrick on the last lap as the two drivers were battling for a top-5 finish, causing Patrick’s car to spin out. Villeneuve finished sixth, while Patrick recovered and finished 12th. Last week at Watkins Glen, Patrick was collected on the first turn by Ryan Truex and finished last. Owen Kelly, who was subbing for Kyle Busch in the No. 54 Toyota, was fifth. Michael McDowell, Cole Whitt, Ron Fellows, Billy Johnson and Brian Scott rounded out the top 10. Points leader Elliott Sadler was 17th, one spot behind Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who’s second in points. Tony Schumacher leads Top Fuel qualifying BRAINERD, Minn. — Tony Schumacher took the Top Fuel lead Friday in qualifying for the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway. Driving a dragster with the new cockpit canopy, Schumacher had a 3.791-second run at a track-record 323.97 mph. Schumacher used the enclosed cockpit, approved by NHRA on Tuesday, on both qualifying attempts. Tim Wilkerson topped the Funny Car field, Erica Enders led in Pro Stock and Hector Arana Sr. in Pro Stock Motorcycle. Wilkerson had a track-record time of 4.049 at 307.16 in a Ford Mustang. Enders, a 2-time winner this year, powered her Chevrolet Cobalt to a 6.550 at 210.37. Arana finished in 6.882 at 192.63 on a Buell.

The Herald – 9
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, AUGUST 19, 2012 Conditions in general look to be rather interesting for you in the year ahead. You should be able to do quite well for yourself, regardless of whether your efforts are independent or involve a collective endeavor. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You’re likely to come up with an idea for devising a spin-off from one of your greatest sources of earning. It may require an imaginative twist, but it’s well within your scope. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -You’ll be at your best in a situation where you have to juggle two endeavors simultaneously. You’ll understand how these projects are interrelated, which will give you the advantage. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you’re smart, you won’t discuss with others your plans to further a personal ambition. This includes even people you hope will eventually participate. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Your pals will have a stronger than usual influence on your outlook and attitude. If you’re smart, you’ll take your cues from friends who are upbeat and progressive. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- A great deal of personal satisfaction will be gained from a challenge that requires your intelligence and resourcefulness to overcome. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Usually, it’s not a good idea to offer advice to just anyone. However, if one of your friends is in dire need of some helpful suggestions, don’t hesitate to speak up. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- When in a partnership arrangement, you should let your cohort do the legwork while you take care of the thinking. The chance for a successful conclusion is greater if you mastermind the effort. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -There’s a chance you might have to make a decision on an issue that has several alternatives of equal value from which to choose. Don’t be indecisive -- instead be conclusive. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Be prepared to teach instead of merely talking. No one is going to follow your ideas or suggestions unless you first demonstrate how well they work. Seeing is believing. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Make it a point to set some time aside for a little fun. A well-deserved break will serve as a marvelous release from any tensions. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Prioritize your goals and complete the most important one first. Only by carefully delegating your time and effort can you hope to get anything done. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Being extremely observant at present, there isn’t much that is likely to escape your attention. You’ll not only grasp the essence of ideas quickly, but you’ll be equally as eager to impart what you learn. MONDAY, AUGUST 20, 2012 A number of exciting developments could be in the offing in the year ahead where your work or career is concerned. There will be numerous, excellent chances for you to finally fulfill some secret ambitions. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Generally, you should be lucky when dealing with intangibles. However, this might not hold up if and when you switch your interests to concrete factors. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Although you might start out focusing on some conservative objectives, more enterprising factors might be looming on the horizon, causing you to become more daring. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- The formula for your success calls for equal parts imagination and elbow grease. Once you conceive a plan of action, get your muscles working. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- An involvement that had been wrested from your grip might be altered again, enabling you to once more assume the reins. This time, you’ll be more attentive. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Extra work-related benefits are likely, owing to some help from people whom you’ve helped in the past. The biggest aid will come from those you’ve assisted the most. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The more determined, dedicated and consistent you become, the luckier you’ll get. This is one of those days when Lady Luck will be delighted to help out in more ways than one. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It behooves you to make an effort to create goodwill among people with whom you have a commercial arrangement pending. This investment will yield tasty dividends. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Conditions are a trifle difficult to read at present, making it appear as if your luck benefits others more than it does you. In reality, the opposite is likely to be true. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Even though you might not be able to accomplish much unaided, with the right help you should be able to take a sparse possibility and turn it into something quite grand. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Look around for an outlet that would allow you to turn a hobby into a profit-making enterprise. The possibilities are out there. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Being a bit of a risk taker, you could go out on a limb in a chancy endeavor. Fortunately, your gamble will pay off. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You’re in for a pleasant surprise when, as you begin to see things for what they actually are, a matter you’ve been perceiving to be negative starts looking like a winner.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Honda’s new Accord sedan to be unveiled Monday at a central Ohio plant has led to more than $220 million in investments and more jobs in two of its other Ohio plants, with companies that supply Honda with products and services also getting a boost. Economic development officials in central Ohio are hopeful the new Accord to be produced at Honda’s Marysville plant in Union County will lead to even more Honda investment in Ohio and bring more economic benefits to their areas. “Every time Honda has invested in Ohio over its 30 years here, it’s meant more Motor Madness is ongoing in Fort Jennings this weekend; jobs,” said Eric Phillips, crowds admired an array of vehicles and bicentennial executive director for the encampment re-enactors enjoyed dinner Friday night, Union County Economic Development Partnership. including those dressed as Native Americans. “If the Accord continues to be as successful as it has been, we’re hoping that it might lead to additional investments and even more jobs here.” Phillips said area officials are hoping that Honda will choose the county as the site for production of its new version of the Acura NSX sports car. Honda has not yet announced the exact location, but says it will be near one of its Ohio plants.

Landecker catches hummingbird on film
Charles Miller of Landeck spotted this female ruby throated hummingbird in his yard. Ruby-throats are intensely inquisitive and easily attracted to feeders, where males in particular typically display aggressive behavior toward rival hummers, other birds and even insects such as bees, butterflies and sphinx moths. They quickly become accustomed to human presence and will swoop down to investigate red articles of clothing, possibly as potential food sources. The average length of a ruby throat is 3.5 inches (8.9 cm); the average weight is 1/8 ounce; wing beats are 40-80 per second; and they can fly up to 50 mph and dive at up to 63 mph.
