Rahrig retires from high school after 20 years

Barclay’s leaves fair on high note
BY STACY TAFF LIMA — Eighteen-years-old Jordan Barclay has been showing pigs at the Allen County Fair for three years but this is only his second year showing chickens. He says he was taken by surprise when he won Grand Champion in the Meat Pen Chicken show. “I was really surprised, it kind of caught me by storm but I was really happy,” he said. “This year, I improved a lot on my feeding times and just how well I was taking care of them and keeping them clean. I managed to keep them at a good weight, too, none were over the eight-pound limit.” Barclay says the hardest part of showing is staying calm and making sure everything is ready beforehand. “The difficult part is just making sure the animals are fed, watered and clean and also making sure I’m wearing what I need to wear,” he said. “Another hard part is keeping myself calm and

DELPHOS — For twenty years, Jane Rahrig has been the secretary at Jefferson High School. Friday marked the end of her long career at Delphos City Schools. However, the high school is losing more than just a secretary. “She wore many hats,” said Elaine Rode, co-secretary and Rahrig’s replacement. “She is just wonderful and we are going to miss her so much. She does so much for this school.” Rode was not the only one to display affection for Rahrig. The office was a buzz with grateful visitors and co-workers. Guidance Counselor Martin Ross was one of many grateful to have worked with Rahrig. “Jane has been a blessing to me and this entire office and this entire school. She has been a strong support and cares so much about our students. She is the best,’ Ross stated.

being patient with the animals so they stay calm. If I’m calm and they’re calm, we work better together.” Once everything is ready for the show, Barclay can enjoy himself. “My favorite part is definitely the show itself,” he said. “I enjoy being able to show the judges what I have, what I can do and how well I’ve taken care of my animals. I like being able to show them what I can bring to the agricultural industry.” Since this is Barclay’s last year at the fair, he’s happy to leave on a high note. “I really don’t think I could’ve done anything better this year because I did the best I could,” he said. “I won’t miss all of the work I had to do but I will definitely miss the atmosphere and getting a chance to see all of the other people showing. I’ll miss just being at the fair.” Barclay will be a senior at Jefferson High School this year. He is the son of Sue and Randy Barclay of Delphos.

Delphos moving toward statewide radio system

As Rahrig was showered with grateful praises, principal John Edinger reflected on her impact. “She is wonderful,” said Edinger. “Today we lose a part of Delphos Jefferson High School.” Everyone in the office conveyed her positive attitude and persistent smile. “She was great with angry parents and angry students while never complaining,” said Edinger. “She also boosted my moral. She helped me out and made me look good.” A woman of few words on such an emotion-filled day, Rahrig left DJHS with very high regard for her coworkers. “The people here are what have made it so wonderful. Everyone from the students to the staff have made Delphos Jefferson such a great place to work,” said Rahrig. As she gazed at her many flowers that hid her desk she whispered with a smile, “This is a nice place.”

DELPHOS — Across the state, police and fire departments are transitioning from traditional analog radios to a digital system. Under the Multi-agency Radio Communication System, emergency management and first responders in Allen County will be enabled to communicate with colleagues in Cleveland, for example, under the new system. The Ohio system will also be comparable with that of nearby states, so locals will be able to talk with first responders in Indiana if they need to. Delphos has the radios but is one of the very few county entities yet to switch over because it will eventually cost nearly $10,000 per year. Under a federal mandate and (See RADIO page 2)

Another year, another…
Another year has passed and another candle was added to my cake. I don’t mind. I still enjoy birthdays and look forward to them. The alternative is just no good. Not reaching the next birthday, I mean. I looked back on the year and have some regrets, some triumphs, good memories and a few things I wish never happened. It was the usual year. I made my share of mistakes and hopefully learned from each and every one. My only goal is to grow as a person, as a human being, as a wife, as a mother, as a sister, as a daughter and as a friend. Some areas came out OK; others still need work. There’d be no point if we were already perfect when we got here. Where do you go from there? What would be the point? I pretty much learn something new every day. It may not be earth-shattering or a mind-blowing revelation but I learn, nonetheless. I know the capacity for

For The Record
(Continued from page 1) technological shifts, however, the transition can be prolonged but not avoided. “We are moving toward it and are meeting next week to talk about it but the ongoing cost is the issue. We’re concerned about that but, at the same time, interoperability is mandated by the Federal Communications Commission and the State of Ohio has already submitted its interoperability plan, Safety Service Director Greg Berquist said. “Allen County went in with some others and got an emergency management grant, so we got the radios for free but there is a cost of use agreement we have to pay. We have 40 radios and it will cost $20 per month for each radio and that will begin in either 2013 or 2014. For now, we only pay the monthly fee when we use them and most of our radios are dormant.” Berquist said the $9,600 will come from the general revenue fund and no new tax will be needed to raise money for the radios.


On the Other hand
human beings to be kind and cruel never ceases to amaze me. We read about it every day. I just keep hoping the kindness outweighs the other. I know that if we don’t strive to be nice to each other and look out for each other somewhere down the line, it’s trouble for us all. It’s easy to get caught up in the rush of everyday life and responsibilities and let time get away and not stop and do the little things we need to like call our parents or stop by a friend’s home just to chat. We get busy and loved ones hear from us less than either of us would like. We say there’s no time but we have more control over that than we either let

ourselves believe or allow. I do know that the years seem to go by pretty quickly and everyone who is older than I am says it only gets worse the more candles that are on that cake. School has started and soon it will be Halloween. Then comes Thanksgiving, Christmas, the new year starts and so on and so forth. We all know how it goes, we just need to learn to slow it down. Well, would you look at that. It’s the day after my birthday already. Only 364 days to go. I’m sure it will be here before I know it. I hope I listen to my own advice and find that balance between the hustle of everyday life and those moments we spend with others that get us through the rest. I know I’m going to enjoy the weekend with my husband and friends and make some of those memories I was talking about.

MERICLE, Ronald D., 77, of Lima, funeral services will begin at 4 p.m. Sunday at Chiles-Laman Funeral and Cremation Services’ Shawnee Chapel, the Rev. David Howell officiating. Burial of the cremated remains will be at a later date in Walnut Grove Cemetery. Friends may call from 4-8 p.m. today at and 2-4 p.m. Sunday the funeral home.

Armstrong mourned as humble hero
By DAN SEWELL Associated Press CINCINNATI — Neil Armstrong was a humble hero who saw himself as a team player and never capitalized on his celebrity as the first man to walk on the moon, mourners said Friday outside a private service attended by fellow space pioneers, including his two crewmates on the historic Apollo 11 mission. Hundreds of people attended a closed service for Armstrong Friday at a private club in suburban Cincinnati. A national memorial service has been scheduled for Sept. 12 in Washington, although no other details have been released on the service or burial plans for Armstrong. He died Saturday at age 82. Among some 10 former astronauts attending Friday were John Glenn and Armstrong’s crew for the 1969 moon landing, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. “You’ll never get a hero, in my view, like Neil Armstrong,” said Apollo 8 astronaut Bill Anders, who praised Armstrong after the service for his wisdom and humility in the way he handled becoming a global icon. “It’s going to be hard to top.” “America has truly lost a legend,” said Eugene Cernan, an Apollo astronaut who is the last man to have walked on the moon. Sen. Rob Portman, an Ohio Republican, eulogized Armstrong “as a reluctant hero” and said afterward the service was a mix of emotion and humor, with Armstrong’s two sons talking about him as a father and grandfather. “He touched the lives of so many,” Portman said. “He was the embodiment of everything this nation is all about,” said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. Armstrong, he said, had a courageous drive for exploration while being an “incredibly humble” man who probably wouldn’t have wanted all the attention of Friday’s service. It included a Navy ceremonial guard, a bagpiper corps and songs including “When the Saints Go Marching In.” Four Navy fighter planes flew over at the end of the service, one flying upward in tribute to Armstrong, a former Navy pilot who flew combat missions in Korea. The moon made a rare full appearance Friday — the second full moon in August. Most months have just one. Raised in Wapakoneta, Ohio, Armstrong developed an early love for aviation. He commanded the Gemini 8 mission in 1966 and Apollo 11’s historic moon landing on July 20, 1969. As a worldwide audience watched on TV, Armstrong took the step on the lunar surface he called “one giant leap for mankind.” Juri Taalman, 78, said he made a special trip from Hartford, Conn., just to stand across the road from the club where the service was held, in tribute to Armstrong. He said he and his wife were on their honeymoon in Amsterdam the day of the moon landing. He recalled hotel employees bringing champagne to the guests watching Armstrong’s first steps together on television, and an Englishman lifting his glass in a toast “to all mankind!” Taalman’s voice cracked as he discussed his visit Friday. “I just think a really great man has passed, and the world is poorer for it,” he said. Earlier Friday, Cernan and Apollo 13 commander James Lovell spoke at a Cincinnati hospital to help launch a children’s health fund in Armstrong’s memory. Cernan and Lovell recounted visiting U.S troops in Iraq and Afghanistan with Armstrong, saying he always had an inspirational impact when meeting troops, schoolchildren and other admirers around the world. Lovell said Armstrong was “a great American” who never capitalized on his celebrity and just “wanted to be a team player.” While Armstrong had said any of the astronauts could have been the first to walk on the moon, Lovell and Cernan said Armstrong was the right choice because of the way he handled suddenly becoming an icon.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Mexico extradited Eduardo Arellano-Felix to the United States Friday, marking what one U.S. official said was the end of a 20-year investigation into the once-mighty drug cartel headed by his older brother. Arellano Felix, 55, arrived in the United States and will make an initial court appearance Tuesday in San Diego on charges of narcotics trafficking, racketeering and money laundering, said Laura Duffy, the U.S. attorney in San Diego, who built her career on the case. A 2003 federal indictment calls Eduardo Arellano Felix “the senior advisor” to his older brother, Benjamin, who headed the Tijuana, Mexico-based organization from its beginnings in the 1980s until his arrest in 2002 in Mexico. In April, Benjamin Arellano Felix was sentenced to 25 years in prison in San Diego after being extradited last year. Eduardo Arellano Felix was arrested in October 2008 in a Saturday night shootout with Mexican authorities at his Tijuana home that was witnessed by his 11-year-old daughter. Duffy said Mexico granted extradition in 2010, which was followed by two years of unsuccessful appeals by Arellano Felix. The Mexican attorney general’s office said he was turned over to U.S. authorities at the Toluca International Airport, west of Mexico City.

Miami dean says he was out of job

OXFORD (AP) — The dean of a business school at a southwestern Ohio university says he retired under pressure from the school’s president over a consulting contract with a university donor later convicted of defrauding investors. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Roger Jenkins retired Wednesday as Miami University’s Farmer School of Business dean after the school said he failed to disclose the tenure or amount of his 2005 contract with the Minneapolis businessman convicted in 2009. Jenkins says he thought his 2005 disclosure was enough and that university officials knew of the contract. Miami President David Hodge says Jenkins did not make required disclosures in later years and was given options including retirement.

Ottoville Park Carnival

Judge restores 3 early voting days

COLUMBUS (AP) — A federal judge in Ohio is giving all voters in the swing state the option of casting their ballot in person during the three days before Election Day. Judge Peter Economus on Friday issued a preliminary injunction granting the request from President Barack Obama’s campaign that targets a state law that cuts off early voting for most residents on the Friday evening before a Tuesday election. The law exempts military personnel and Ohioans living overseas. Obama’s campaign and Democrats are suing the state’s elections chief over the legality of the law. They argue that everyone should have a chance to vote on those three days.

1st death linked to new swine flu is Ohioan, 61

COLUMBUS (AP) — Health officials say the death of a 61-year-old central Ohio woman is the first associated with a new swine flu strain. The Ohio Department of Health says the Madison County woman died this week. It says she had underlying medical conditions, but the H3N2v influenza virus may have contributed to her death. She became ill after having contact with hogs at the Ross County fair. Ohio has 102 cases of the virus in people from 6 months to 61 years old, many linked to contact with hogs at fairs. The state health director says most have been mild illnesses. He’s urging at-risk groups to avoid swine exhibits and take other precautions. Those groups include young children, older residents, pregnant woman and people with weakened immune systems or underlying medical conditions.

COLUMBUS — The state of Ohio wants to spend $3.5 million to build and operate a facility that would temporarily house exotic animals confiscated under a new law that’s about to take effect. The state Controlling Board, which handles certain adjustments to the state budget, would have to approve the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s request for the money. The issue will be considered at a meeting Sept. 10. The amount was reported Friday in a meeting agenda released by the Ohio Office of Budget and Management. The request includes $2.93 million to construct the facility, which would be built on the Agriculture Department’s campus in a rural part of Reynoldsburg, just east of Columbus. The proposal comes as the state prepares to crack down on owners of exotic animals in Ohio. The new law, which takes effect Sept. 5, will immediately ban people from buying new dangerous exotic animals. Ohio officials can seize animals from current owners if those owners don’t meet the state’s requirements or are found housing an animal without a permit.

Any seized animals would be cared for under the supervision of the state veterinarian, according to the agriculture department. Efforts to strengthen Ohio’s restrictions on exotic pets, which have been among the nation’s weakest, increased after owner Terry Thompson released 50 animals, including black bears, mountain lions and Bengal tigers, from his eastern Ohio farm in Zanesville in October. He then committed suicide. Authorities killed 48 of the animals as a public safety measure, and two others were believed to have been eaten by other animals. The agriculture department’s offices at the site for the planned facility that would house confiscated exotic animals are near those of the state fire marshal and close to fields. The campus is already fenced, but the state would add more fencing and possibly hire a security guard, according to Agriculture Department spokeswoman Erica Pitchford. “This is not going to be a threat to our employees, just like it won’t be a threat

to our neighbors,” Pitchford said last week. “It will be well built, it will be very secure, and it will be well looked after.”

“The most dangerous of all falsehoods is a slightly distorted truth.”
—Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, German scientist (1742-1799).

One Year Ago • The Van Wert County Fair opened Wednesday for the 155th time, keeping alive many of the familiar traditions and beginning a few new ones. This fair features a newer, shorter schedule. “We’ve shortened the fair by two days, taking the last two days off of it,” explained Fair Board President Dave Evans. 25 Years Ago — 1987 • Salem Presbyterian Church of Venedocia will sponsor its annual gymanfa ganu Sept. 6. This year’s festival of song will be directed by Bartle Jones from St. Louis, Mo., formerly of Venedocia. An active program of handbell ringing choirs was begun by Bartle when a set of 24 bells was given to the Venedocia Church by Bess (Morgan) Wilson. • Mr. and Mrs. Robert Bigelow, Sr. of Fort Jennings, attended the 69th national convention of the American Legion last week in San Antonio, Texas. Bob presently is the second division commander of the first district of Ohio and was selected as a delegate to represent Ohio at the convention. • Spec. 4 Michelle L. Wagner, daughter of Sandra L. and David L. Wagner of Delphos, has been decorated with the Army Achievement medal in South Korea. Wagner is a data telecommunications operator with the 275th Signal Company. She is a 1985 graduate of Jefferson High School. 50 Years Ago — 1962 • Norman Schulte of Fort Jennings, was one of 11 young men who recently was graduated from the Ohio Highway Department technician training program. The 11 were assigned to highway department work Monday. Schulte and five others were appointed to Division One, Lima. The technician training program trains young men in algebra, trigonometry, engineering drawing, surveying, highway material and professional ethics. • Plans to keep the municipal swimming pool open on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month of September were announced by Calvin Fox, recreation director. Pool patrons are asked to come to the pool dressed in their swimming garments because the dressing rooms will be in use by the local football teams. • As a result of semi-final wins Thursday night, Tom & Lou will meet German’s Shell for the championship of the third annual local invitational slo-pitch tournament. Tom & Lou blanked Ottawa Bert’s Bar, 9-0 and German’s Shell topped Lima UAW 1219, 9-3. Tom & Lou is the league, city tournament and district tournament winner, and German’s Shell is the defending Delphos invitational tournament winner. 75 Years Ago — 1937 • Gramm Motors, Inc. of Delphos, is enjoying a good business at the present time and deliveries are being made almost daily to many places in the United States and foreign countries. This week four trucks will be shipped to Nigeria, West Africa; two to Bangkok, Siam and two to Bogota, Columbia, South America. Last week four trucks were shipped to Yugoslavia. • Miller’s Opticians were acclaimed the softball champions of Delphos Tuesday night by virtue of their 5 to 4 defeat over Coombs Shoes. It is the second straight year that Miller’s have won the city championship. W. Briggs was on the mound again Tuesday night. He gave up seven hits during the contest and issued no free passes. • Veronica King entertained the members of the DeltaGame-a Bridge Club and one guest Tuesday night at the home of her aunt, Clara Eickholt, West Third Street. In bridge, Mrs. Alfred Weisgerber held high score and Helen Stallkamp was second high. In two weeks, Mrs. Donald Imber, State Street, will receive the club into her home.

Welcome to one of the last vestiges of summer – Labor Day Weekend. This weekend has a long history of grunts and groans as schools are back in session, community pools are closed for the season, and many are trying to get in just a few more rays to keep that summer tan. Many businesses are closed today through Monday, including the post office. The history of labor day and the connection of postal employees and their unions have played a very interesting role in shaping the United States Postal Service once referred to as the Post Office Department. The national holiday of Labor Day was voted into law in June of 1894. Prior to that date, several state legislatures had taken the stance that it should be a time to celebrate the accomplishments of the American worker and the roles played by the labor union organizations. The vital force of labor has brought America a high standard of living and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pays tribute on

Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker. During the recent budget constraints placed on the United States Postal Service, several pieces of legislation that if enacted, would significantly curtail the role played by postal unions. That role was defined following the postal workers strike in 1970 by the Postal Reorganization Act which Richard M. Nixon signed into law on July 1, 1971. On that same date the American Postal Workers Union (APWU) was founded. This labor organization was the result of a merger of five postal unions. The United Federation of Postal Clerks, the National Postal Union, the National Associate of Post Office and General Service Maintenance Employees, the National Federation of Motor Vehicle Employees and the National Association of Special Delivery Messengers. In 2007, the National Postal Professional Nurses labor organization merged with the APWU. The most significant provision of the reorganization act instituted collective bar-

gaining between the USPS and its affiliated unions. I believe the following excerpt from an opinion expressed by the Supreme Court of Canada defines how labor unions have felt concerning the role of collective bargaining: “The right to bargain collectively with an employer enhances the human dignity, liberty and autonomy of workers by giving them the opportunity to influence the establishment of workplace rules and thereby gain some control over a major aspect of their lives, namely their work... Collective bargaining is not simply an instrument for pursuing external ends… rather [it] is intrinsically valuable as an experience in self-government... Collective bargaining permits workers to achieve a form of workplace democracy and to ensure the rule of law in the workplace. Workers gain a voice to influence the establishment of rules that control a major aspect of their lives.” But the role that unions have played with the Post Office Department date back almost 100 years prior to the reorganization act. In 1863, Cleveland Ohio saw the begin-

nings of city delivery by letter carriers. The organization to represent these employees was formed twenty six years later. It was known as the National Association of Letter Carriers. In 1896, the post office began an experiment with rural delivery with just five routes. Seven years later, there were 15,119 routes nationwide. These employees would be represented by the National Rural Letter Carrier Association which was formed in 1903. 1912 saw the formation of the National Mailhandlers Union which represents another 48,000 employees of the 560,000 on the roles today. So enjoy your Labor Day weekend even though it usually means the beginning of the end of summer. Take this opportunity to grab one of the few remaining seats for our next excursion to New York City. All plans need to be finalized by the end of next week, so don’t be left out. Spend five glorious days enjoying the greatest city in the world – the one that never sleeps.

Survivors shouldn’t feel guilty about loved one’s suicide
The year was 1987. Alf was popular. The Simpsons made its television debut. Three Men and a Baby, Good Morning, Vietnam and Dirty Dancing were tearing up the box office. Bad was released by Michael Jackson. Whitney Houston wanted to dance with somebody. Sandy Lyle, of Delphos, was 19. It was the year her mother, 47, took her own life. September is Suicide Prevention Month. This is obviously not a light subject. It makes some people uncomfortable. Many people would rather read a funny story about my kids or a descriptive piece about the onset of autumn. I never got more feedback from an article than I did when I wrote May’s column about bipolar disorder, though so, I felt compelled to write about this topic, as it is another taboo issue, but one that is important and real. Sandy Lyle’s mother had attempted suicide twice before she actually committed it. Lyle remembers her mother as being “horribly depressed almost constantly.” She said, “She’d sit in her bean bag chair and smoke cigarettes. She didn’t do anything.” She revealed that her mother was also violent. “Dad wanted a divorce. Mom got so mad about it. She was going nuts; he was afraid she’d get a knife.” Lyle’s mom and dad had been divorced 7 years when it happened. Lyle recalls her grandmother calling with the news. “She was crying hysterically. That Mom had actually done it. Dad said, ‘No, it’s just another cry for help; she didn’t do it.’ I drove as fast as I could. They were carrying her body out.” Lyle said, “She had taken pills. She had gone into the bathroom to try and throw them up. She was walking back into the bedroom when she hit the corner of the dresser and fell. That’s where she died. So many lives were ruined. I still have nightmares to this day,” said Lyle. “I am sad. I didn’t want her to die.” While many people have never been personally affected by suicide, it is not uncommon. In Allen County alone, there were 16 suicides from January 1 to December 31, 2011. People need to know that there is help, and it is local. You can call 1-800567-HOPE at any time, and the We Care Crisis Center, located on 797 S. Main St. in Lima, is open 24/7, no appointment necessary. The Summit on Suicide Awareness and Prevention

by Sara Berelsman
is coming up on September 18, which will offer information for the professional, the educator, the minister, and families looking for answers, such as verbal and non-verbal signs, and actions that can predict threat of self-harm. You can register to attend the summit by going to www. The 6th annual Suicide Walk is also approaching from 10 a.m. to noon on Sept. 29. It begins at the We Care Crisis Center, where attendees will walk to the Lima Square and back. There is no pre-registration for this. There will be raffles, T-shirts for purchase, and a provided lunch. There will also be a ceremony and balloon release to honor those lost. There are some signs that a loved one might be contemplating suicide. Losing interest in people one loves, losing interest in activities, and exhibiting signs of depression are all signs. Also, giving away belongings, and a sudden surge of happiness denotes that the person has made plans and is at peace with his or her decision. http:// is a great resource which provides an extensive list of signs. As for those going through the pain and devastation of a loved one who has committed suicide, Sandy Lyle said, “Be sure to take care of the person who is ill, but also take care of yourself. You can’t control what people will do. You can watch the depression, the attempts, but in the end, you can’t stop them.” While not every suicide can be prevented, as was unfortunately the case with Lyle’s mother, there are resources out there. Some suicides can be prevented. But if not, as Lyle said, “Don’t blame yourself.”
crucial given a recent Gallup poll that found Obama leading Romney (48 percent to 36 percent) on the question of who is more trustworthy. In another example, Ryan criticized Obama’s plan to cut $700 billion from the growth of Medicare. Ryan’s own plan also calls for $700 billion in cuts, though with different details. Why not acknowledge this? Everyone knows it — unless Ryan believes that his audience isn’t up to speed — so why not set the record straight? Why not say, “Look, I want to cut $700 billion too, but there are ways to do this without hurting people. Here’s how.” It’s as though he wants no one to remember “that guy.” Now he’s this guy, the one who wants to protect Medicare. While Republicans love Ryan and his “Let’s get this done” attitude, Romney and Ryan need more than internal support. They need the folks who voted for Obama last time and who feel betrayed. They need independents, specifically. There’s no dishonor in giving or accepting credit (or blame) where due, but you can’t win voter confidence if you lack it in your own record. You can run, but you can’t run from yourself. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@

TAMPA, Fla. — Welcome to Mitt Romney. With his speech to the Republican National Convention on Thursday night, the enigma running for president finally cleared some of the underbrush and revealed a clearer picture of who he is. To a degree yet to be determined, he seemed to break free of the rut he and running mate Paul Ryan have been stuck in -- that is, running against themselves. Ryan ran from his own budget and history, and Romney was too modest to toot his horn. How many Americans know, for instance, that Romney gave away his inheritance? Or that he has worked several jobs, including the governorship of Massachusetts, for no pay? Or that he has given to and made millions for charities? The problem with such modesty is that others create your narrative for you. Romney the successful businessman was forced into defending himself against accusations that he outsourced jobs. Oh, well, who didn’t? Perhaps the outsourcing didn’t take place under his immediate watch, but the direction of the company he founded was known to him. Why not accept that outsourcing, unpopular as it is, was the way profitable companies operated so that investors could make profits and so Americans consumers could have cheap jeans?

Romney/Ryan: Who, me?

Point of View
Romney isn’t one to brag, but he finally was able to express pride Thursday in his accomplishments. He managed to reframe the story of his years at Bain Capital as a success story of the kind Americans celebrate rather than apologize for. Also missing from his personal narrative has been any mention of his faith, which largely informs his deeds. His reticence perhaps owed to the fact that he had to work so hard to gain the support and faith of evangelicals and others who view Mormonism with skepticism. Why open that door? Because it is Who You Are. Romney managed to deal with the issue Thursday without lingering long on the details. His family’s religion may have seemed out of place in Detroit, he said, but it didn’t feel that way. His friends were more interested in what sports teams he followed than what church he attended. Enough said. Ryan, too, has tried to avoid being who he is. The budget guru to whom most Republicans defer on every-

thing from debts and deficits to health care reform has been tentative in defending his record and, in some cases, pretended it doesn’t exist. In his speech Wednesday night, Ryan denounced Obama policies and maneuvers that closely resemble some of his own and made several not-quite-complete statements that resulted in a day of criticism and gave Democrats an opportunity to question both his credibility and his intellectual honesty. In one instance, Ryan criticized Obama for ignoring the recommendations of the Simpson-Bowles commission. What Ryan didn’t say is that he served on the commission and voted against its proposals. There’s nothing wrong with either of those facts except their omission. His criticisms would have carried more weight had he mentioned these things and elaborated. What’s wrong with saying, “I served on the commission and while I had problems with it and voted against it, it was the right approach. We just didn’t go far enough and the president simply looked the other way”? Instead, Ryan ignored his role in the process, essentially deleting his participation and his past. Whom does this serve? Certainly not the Romney-Ryan ticket, which risks being perceived as less than straightforward. This is

‘Cats run over Panthers in NWC opener
The Delphos Herald DELPHOS – Zavier Buzard ran for 385 yards on 34 carries and Quinten Wessell added 162 yards on 14 tries as the Jefferson Wildcats rolled to a 63-34 win over Paulding in Northwest Conference action at Stadium Park Friday night. The Wildcats took control of the game on their opening possession and never looked back. Jefferson finished the night with 545 rushing yards and 710 total yards of offense in moving to 2-0 overall and 1-0 in the Northwest Conference. “I have to give our offensive line a lot of credit,” noted Wildcat head coach Bub Lindeman after the contest. “We felt like we had an advantage with our whole line back from last year and they did a good job of going out and doing exactly what we had hoped. They did a great job of blocking up front and then our running backs exploded through the holes.” Buzard finished the night with five touchdown runs while Wessell added two more. It was a dominating performance offensively for the Wildcats. “We feel like we have two very good running backs,” Lindeman continued. “Wessell is tough to bring down and runs so hard as a fullback and then Buzard is a very good tailback. But it all comes down to the play up front and they did a great job tonight.” The Wildcats ran their first offensive series and marched 84 yards in 11 plays, consuming 5:22 off of the clock before scoring the game’s first points on a 3-yard touchdown run from Buzard. “I thought we came out and established our running game right away and that is who we are,” noted Lindeman. “We want to be able to run the ball and we were aggressive in doing so tonight.” Jefferson widened the margin to 14-0 early in the second stanza. Buzard capped a 7-play, 66-yard drive with an 18-yard scamper at the 10:38 mark. Paulding would get on the scoreboard on its ensuing possession. Taking advantage of a 43-yard kickoff return by James Brown to go along with a Wildcat facemask penalty, the Panthers started their drive at the Jefferson 35.


Jefferson senior fullback Quinten Wessell goes through a Paulding Panther on this gain down the sideline in the second period Friday night at Stadium Park. In a Wildcat offensive explosion, Wessell ran for over 100 yards as the Wildcats pummeled the Panthers 63-34. Seven plays later — facing a fourth-and-goal at the 1 — quarterback Julian Salinas hooked up with Javier Gonzales for the toss to make it 14-7. But the Wildcats weren’t done. On the ensuing possession, junior signal-caller Austin Jettinghoff found junior Tyler Mox wide open in the corner of the end zone for a 21-7 Wildcat advantage with 3:54 left in the half. Jefferson then pushed the margin to 28-7 with 43 seconds left in the second quarter. Jettinghoff hooked up with Ross Thompson for a 53-yard scoring toss that turned all momentum to the Wildcats’ favor heading into the locker room. “We felt like we had really started to wear them down at halftime,” added the Wildcat mentor. “They appeared to be tired and our offense was able to move the ball consistently.” The second half was a scoring fest for both teams, with the two squads combining for 62 points in the final two quarters. Wessell broke free for a 51-yard touchdown run at the 5:40 mark as Jefferson widened the margin to 35-7. Paulding answered with a 46-yard touchdown pass from Salinas to Logan Doster with 3:17 left in the quarter before Jefferson responded. On the Wildcats’ first play from scrimmage of the ensuing drive, it was Buzard who scampered 69 yards to put the home team back on top 42-14. The junior tailback then added another score with 20 seconds left, sprinting away from the Panther defense for a 64-yard touchdown run that gave Jefferson a 49-14 advantage. James Brown returned the ensuing kickoff 86 yards for a Panther touchdown but the Wildcats weren’t done. Buzard picked up an 18-yard run for a score with 10:22 left in the contest for a 56-20 Jefferson lead. Salinas connected with Lance Foor on a 3-yard touchdown pass to get Paulding back within 56-28 before Jefferson picked up its final score of the night. Wessell plunged in from a yard out to wrap up the Wildcat scoring with 3:26 left. Salinas picked up his fourth touchdown pass of the contest on a 28-yard completion to Gonzales to round out the scoring. “It’s always good to start out league play with a win but we have to come back ready to play next week,” concluded Lindeman. Jettinghoff finished the night 7-of-10 through the air for 165 yards. Thompson recorded five receptions for 129 yards to lead the Wildcats. Salinas ran for 98 yards on 15 carries to lead the Paulding ground attack, with Doster adding 69 yards on nine tries. Salinas also was 13-of-28 through the air for 160 yards. Foor picked up four receptions for Paulding while Gonzales and Kaleb Hernandez had three each. Paulding returns to Northwest Conference action

Grothaus paces Grove past Mustangs on gridiron
By DAVE BONINSEGNA The Delphos Herald COLUMBUS GROVE — It hasn’t taken new Columbus Grove football coach Andy Schafer very long to get comfortable in his position at the helm of the Bulldog football squad; just two games into his tenure, he has seen his troops put up two Ws. For the second consecutive week, Grove quarterback Collin Grothaus led the hosts to a victory. Grothaus threw for three touchdowns and ran for two, while picking off two passes, as the Bulldogs ran away with a 48-26 Northwest Conference victory over the Allen East Mustangs Friday at Clymer Stadium. Grothaus rushed the ball 14 times for 131 yards and threw for 259 yards. Dakota Vogt had two touchdowns, one rushing and one from the air; Blake Hoffman and David Bogart both found the end zone for the home team. The Mustang effort was led by Ross Stewart; he ran the ball 20 times for 130 yards and two touchdowns. Allen East quarterback Casey Crow completed 6-of-14 passes, two for touchdowns. The contest started much like the ’Dogs’ battle in week one with Pandora-Gilboa — with the guests scoring on their first possession and the Bulldogs answering right back. In the first four possessions of the contest, each team scored twice, with Stewart driving the ball in from a yard out for the Allen East first score and Hoffman answering back on just the second play from scrimmage for the Bulldogs with 61-yard pass from Grothaus. After a 2-point conversion, the hosts were up 8-7. The Mustangs answered the bell on their next touch, a 5-play drive capped off by a Matt Schuey 13-yard reception; however, the extra point was no good, making it a 13-8 contest. It wouldn’t take long for Columbus Grove to answer back — four minutes and five plays later, Vogt found his way into the end zone from six yards out. After tacking on another 2-point conversion, the Bulldogs were up three at 16-13. It appeared that the defenses had figured out the opposing offense as the next two possessions by each team resulted in punts but the Mustangs came up with another big play as Crow connected with Nick Kohlrieser in the corner of the end zone to complete a 37-yard connection and give the visitors the lead back at 20-16 with 10 minutes left before the break. Nevertheless, as they had done earlier, the Bulldogs answered the call and came right back. After a holding penalty appeared to snuff out their drive, Bogart got hold of a 60-yard pass from Grothaus and with a completed 2-point conversion, the Bulldogs regained the lead at 24-20.

Bulldogs dominate both sides in shut out of Bearcats
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ SPENCERVILLE — Ada has built a strong offensive legacy in the last decade-plus under head football coach Micah Fell. The Bulldogs showed they could flex some defensive muscles as well, thoroughly dominating both sides of the line of scrimmage in shutting out host Spencerville 35-0 Friday night in Northwest Conference grid action at Charles Moeller Memorial Field. Perhaps they had extra motivation as Coach Fell was mourning the death of his mother earlier this week. The defense held the potent Bearcats’ running game to 118 yards on 40 tries, while the offense piled up 482 yards. “The kids knew their head coach was hurting and they stepped it up for him. They played with so much heart tonight,” Ada defensive coordinator Frank Crea explained. Ada got the ball first and started marching immediately behind their no-huddle, shotgun, up-tempo spread offense. However, Spencerville got a break as senior Hunter Patton picked off an overthrow by senior quarterback Mason Acheson (20-of-27 passing, 310 yards, 3 picks, 4 scores), setting the hosts (1-1, 0-1 NWC) up at the 43. They seemed to have all the momentum and drove to the Bulldog (2-0, 1-0 NWC) 37 but on 4th-and-2, junior back Anthony Schuh (11 rushes, 33 yards) was stopped a yard short. “Credit the Ada defense and coaching staff; they played a great game. They simply out-physicaled us and that surprised me,” Spencerville coach John Zerbe said. “They had too much penetration all night and we couldn’t get anything going at all. They owned both sides of the line of scrimmage; hats off to them. They took away what we do best and that’s run the ball.” The visitors marched quickly — three plays, in fact — to strike. At the Bearcat 44, Acheson looked left and threw for junior Matt Wilcox (5 grabs, 97 yards) on the right numbers at the 30. He cut all the way across the field in eluding the defense to paydirt. Junior Hunter Waller kicked the extra point and the visitors led 7-0 with 6:29 showing in the first. Fell gave credit where it was due. “Coach Crea put together a great game plan starting Monday and the kids executed it flawlessly,” Fell continued. “We’ve played this 7-man front before — we have one linebacker to clean everything up. We wanted to make them throw to beat us.” Ada again started move the ball on its next possession — starting at the 42 — but senior Dan Settlemire picked off Acheson at the goal line and returned it 17 yards. However, it was another 3-and-out. Ada commenced at its 45 and took another quick drive — three plays again — to strike again. After a procedure call (9 penalties, 72 yards) set them back, Acheson took the snap from the 41 and found senior running back Kellen Decker (4 grabs, 77 yards; 19 rushes, 91 yards) on a screen pass to the left side. He got great blocking to the sideline and turned on the jets, pulling through an arm tackle at the 20 and ending up in the end zone. Waller’s conversion made it 14-0 with 35 ticks showing in the opening period. Spencerville gained a first down — an 18-yard pass from senior signalcaller Derek Goecke (1-of-7 passing) to senior tight end Dominick Corso — but again called upon sophomore punter Logan Vandemark (7 times for the game) to boot it away. Ada punted for its only time on its next sequence, as did the Bearcats.

Columbus Grove wasn’t done with the scoring in the first half; the ’Dogs struck again with just over a minute left on a 52-yard completion from Grothaus to Vogt. Vogt caught the pass on the Allen East 45 and powered his way to paydirt, giving the home team a 30-20 advantage going into the break. The Bulldogs got the ball to start off the second half and wasted no time in putting up six more on the board. A 44-yard Vogt run, with help from a 15-yard penalty against Allen East, set things up for a 2-yard jolt into the end zone by the Grove quarterback; just like that, the hosts were in control with a 36-20 advantage. Another Stewart 1-yard run for the Mustangs cut things down to 10 but the Bulldogs kept piling on and Hoffman added the final two scores for Grove: a 44-yard touchdown catch coupled with a 42-yard run. The Bulldogs moved their record to 2-0 (1-0 NWC) on the season, while Allen East falls to 0-2 (0-1). Grove visits Ada Friday.

The Bulldogs embarked on an 13-play drive — starting at Spencerville’s 48 — that involved three penalties (25 yards in losses) and a 35-yard hitch-and-pitch play that was ready to hit paydirt again. However, an Acheson pass to the left side from the Bearcat 9 was picked off at the goal line by senior Devon Cook; he returned in 60 yards to the Ada 40. Spencerville reached the Ada 12 in two plays, including a personal foul on the Bulldogs. However, the Bulldog ‘D’ stiffened and held on a 4th-and-10 at the 12 with 2:15 remaining in the half. Ada did reach the 49 before a last-gasp effort was dropped, ending the half. After a 3-and-out possession by the home team, Ada went on a 5-play, 67-yarder. At the Bearcat 28, Acheson (who was 10-of-11 the second half for 133 yards) found senior Jacob Ansley (7 grabs, 106 yards - 5 for 75 the 2nd half) on a quick hitch on the left side; he eluded a defender and jetted to the pylon. Waller’s PAT made it 21-0 with 8:09 showing in the third. On its next drive, Ada once more started with excellent field position — the 43. They needed 11 plays to add to the lead. At the Spencerville 2, loaded up in the power-I, Decker took a handoff off right guard and immediately jetted outside to the pylon. Waller made it 28-0 with 2:04 to go in the quarter. “Our defense was on the field a lot of plays,” Zerbe added. “You know you’re not going to hold them down all game long. When we didn’t take advantage of the turnovers we got, those were big moments. Our offense is built for long drives and we didn’t have any; that left our defense out there too long.” Ada finished off the scoring with a 6-play, 46-yard sojourn. At the Spencerville 9, Acheson hit Ansley on a quick-hitter to the left sideline and he did the rest. Waller made it 35-0 with 10:55 left. Spencerville went on its longest drive of the night — 15 plays — that started at the 20 and ended up as senior John Smith (18 totes, 66 yards) was stopped a yard shot on 4th-and-goal from the Ada 3 with 4:07 left. Ada then ran out the clock. “I remember when we had Zach Dysert throw three picks over here one year. Mason just kept going back out and didn’t let it bother him,” Fell added. Spencerville visits Allen East Friday and Ada entertains Columbus Grove.

Jays need quick rebound versus Redskins
By JIM METCALFE St. John’s lost a tough Saturdaynight encounter with budding gridiron archrival Lima Central Catholic a week ago. The Blue Jays and head coach Todd Schulte don’t have a lot of time to catch their collective breaths as Division III foe Port Clinton comes to town today for a 1 p.m. kickoff. “This is a senior-dominated and veteran team with 15 starters back. That is one area we are concerned about with us having so many new starters and still struggling to figure things out,” Schulte explained. “They are in the base ‘I’ formation and though they run a lot of the same stuff as we do, they are primarily a power team; they run a lot of powers and try to push you off the ball. Their quarterback (Addison Rospert) is a big key for their offense; he is more of a running threat than throwing the ball. If he can get to the edge — which they try to do a yards) are the two main cogs offenlot with roll-outs — he is dangerous sively for the Jays. Linebackers in the open field. They also Cody Looser (junior; have a lot of size up front 8 solos, 5 assists) and — average 240 from tackle senior Troy Warnecke to tackle — and that size is a (4 and 6; 1 pick), as concern. We’re figuring for well as defensive back a hot and humid afternoon Ben Youngpeter (5 and and them leaning on us all 4), are the top guys on day is a worry. We’re going defense. to have to use what I feel is The Jays had ample a quickness advantage up opportunities in that front to counter that, as well 18-13 season-opening as simply tackle better than loss. last week.” “Whether it was “Defensively, they are a Warnecke things we did well or base 3-man front but against LCC committing misour tight end(s), they will walk the takes, we had chances to take that outside linebacker up over him, per- game all game long. When it came haps on both sides, for a 4- or 5-man to gut-check time, we didn’t come look. They don’t do a lot of blitzing through and that is something we — they like to have their linebackers must address,” Schulte added. “We read and react — but they do stunt saw we did some good things right, and slant a lot with their linemen.” especially looking at the film, but Junior tailback Tyler Jettinghoff we made far too many mistakes.

offense, for instance, and we can work on tackling better. That’s what we did this week and we will get better as we go.” Toby Hammonds crew returns those 15 starters — seven on offense, eight on defense — from a 5-5 edition last fall (3-4 in the Sandusky Bay Conference). Besides the 5-11, 160-pound Rospert, he operates behind a veteran and all-senior line led by Robert Beck (6-5, 250), Chris Overfield (5-10, 220), Nick Leone (6-1, 225), Ben Petersen (6-1, 280) and Cory Colston (6-0, 220), with a 5-10, 205pound senior fullback (Cody Smith) and 5-11, 160-pound junior Brock Moore the top guy outside. Many of those same faces return and play on the other side of the ball, particularly Smith on the nose, Overfield at linebacker, Rospert and Moore in the secondary and senior end Chris Stokes (6-1, 180) and senior nose/tackle Trey Gluth (6-3, 215).

Lady Green throws goose-egg at Lincolnview
By JIM METCALFE a great look by sophomore Haley Landwehr; at 28:35, when she did the same to junior Monica Sarka from 14 yards; 14:16, when she stopped a 6-yard header by Eickholt; and 11:43, when she stuffed a 16-yarder by Landwehr. On the other end, the Big Green defense was strong — as it has been all year in yielding a single goal in four matches. Senior goalkeeper Rachel Beining made two stops (7 overall) in denying a 16-yarder by senior Sarah Harris at 24:47 and at 17:27, turning back a 21-yarder by senior Kaylee Thatcher. As well, the wind knocked wide a great open look from 21 yards by freshman Brooke Schroeder. Lincolnview had more chances at the goal in the second half but it wasn’t as if Ottoville didn’t have any. The Lady Lancers had the first good crack at 31:52 but Beining was true in stopping a 20-yard free kick by senior Courtney Gorman. Beining denied a few more shots: at 27:03, a 12-yarder by Kaylee Thatcher; 25:36, a 20-yarder by Harris; and 10:15, a 17-yarder from sophomore Claire Clay. Either that or the Lancers were just off the mark, as at 25:07 when Kaylee Thatcher had a nice chance from nine yards just outside the right post but missed just wide left. On the other end, the Big Green got that all-important insurance goal at 30:12. Off a sequence that included a Julia Thatcher save on a 14-yarder by Landwehr, the Green and Gold got possession again and this time, Eickholt would not be denied. Fed by Sarka, she fired a 16-yarder from outside the left post low and hard to the opposite side for a 2-0 edge. “We knew coming in this would be a tough match; Lincolnview is a very well-organized program for only being on the varsity level two years,” Ottoville head man Tim Kimmet said. “Getting that first goal was important because their goalie made it tough; that was a tough shot on the first one. Getting the second

RURAL MIDDLE POINT — A heavy wind coming out of the west played havoc with the Ottoville at Lincolnview girls soccer matchup Friday afternoon at Lincolnview High School. In the end, though, it was the better depth of the Lady Big Green that paced a 2-0 non-league triumph. Ottoville (4-0-0) took advantage of the wind in the first half to control the ball more — outshooting the Lancers (2-1) 10-3 on-goal (14-9 for the contest). They got the early stake — at 32:08 — when senior Rachel Turnwald got possession on a pass from junior Kendra Eickholt along the right post, made a quick move and went high from 16 yards over sophomore netminder Julia Thatcher (9 saves) for the 1-nil edge. Several diving saves by Thatcher kept the score there in the first half, especially at 31:30 when she denied

Big Green edged Lancers in non-league boys matchup
By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald OTTOVILLE — The Ottoville Big Green boys soccer team ran its record to 4-1 on the season with a close 2-1 win over the visiting Lincolnview Lancers Friday night. The first half saw both teams battle hard for the first 20 minutes with good defensive play and aggressive goalkeeping, especially from Lancer senior goalie Mark Evans. At the 18:24 mark, the Big Green found its scoring leader this season — senior Anthony Eickholt — streaking down the right side of the field and he sent a laser across the goal mouth, finding the left corner of the net and giving the home team a 1-0 lead. The Big Green had several other opportunities in the half but were unable to connect for another score. The Lancers struggled offensively in the half with only three shots on-goal. Their best opportunity came at the 4:45 mark when sophomore Wyatt Schmersal received a pass from freshman Cole Schmersal and sent a shot on-goal but Big Green goalie Colin Bendele was up to the task with the save, preserving the 1-0 lead into the break. The fans had hardly got back to their seats in the second half when Big Green senior Dylan Klima — off the opening whistle — received a pass from fellow senior Logan Gable and his shot eluded Evans in goal at the 39:43 mark, sending the Big Green to a 2-0 lead. Big Green Head Coach Eric Gerker leaned on his defense the remainder of the half to try to protect the lead. Gerker is blessed with three excellent defenders in seniors Bryan Hohlbein and Matt Burgei and sophomore Austin Honigford. Gerker knows that Burgei, coming off of an early-season injury, is a key to the success of the Big Green this year: “Matt coming back is a big plus for us. I didn’t want to play him the whole game but he kept saying he was OK. He put a lot of good minutes in tonight and just having him back is a big emotional lift for the team.” The Lancers, at the 5:40 mark, received a free kick opportunity after an elbowing penalty was called on the Big Green. Junior Conner McCleery sent a shot towards the goal that was cleared by the defense; however, the next opportunity at the 4:59 mark found freshman Austin Leeth with the ball in point-blank range and beat the Big Green goalie to tighten the score to 2-1. The Lancers never threatened the goal for the remainder of the half and the Big Green came away with a narrow win over the Lancers. Coach Gerker was overall pleased with his team’s performance and was quick to praise the

was another tough one; being against the wind made it even better.” The lefty-footed Eickholt almost got a third Ottoville tally at 16:23 on a swinging corner kick from the right side but it hit the near post and the ball was cleared away. Julia Thatcher made another diving stop to stymie a 12-yarder by Turnwald. “We came out flat and didn’t have intensity. Had we done so, it either is tied or we have a couple of goals,” Lancer head coach Katrina Smith relayed. “We played with more intensity the second half but we didn’t catch a break; we figured on the wind to keep blowing hard after going against it the first half but it died down. Plus, with only three subs, we don’t have the depth but we’re getting in better shape each match.” Ottoville welcomes in CoryRawson 6 p.m. Wednesday, while Lincolnview hosts Bluffton 5 p.m. Thursday in a Northwest Conference match.

Lancers: “We did a lot of good things tonight. Our possession game made some strides tonight. We controlled the ball most of the game, attacked the net several times and kept their goalie busy throughout the game. They’re a good team; they’ve come a long way in a couple of years they’ve had their program. Their going to be very competitive for the next couple of years; they gave us all we could ask for tonight.” The Lancers (2-2-0) will not play again until Sept. 15 when they travel to Cory-Rawson for a 11 a.m. start. The Big Green (4-1-0) will host Archbold next Thursday for a 5 p.m. start. Lincolnview 0 1 - 1 Ottoville 1 1 - 2 Shots On-Goal: Ottoville 12, Lincolnview 7.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report CENTRAL OHIO Buckeye Lake (Fairfield/ Licking/Perry counties) - As water temperatures start to cool, hybrid-striped bass will again feed more actively; try chicken livers fished on the bottom or troll spinners along the north shore from Seller’s Point to the north boat ramp at SR 79. Channel catfish are being taken right now using cut bait on the bottom. Crappie action will start to pick up soon; use minnows or jigs fished around woody cover. O’Shaughnessy Reservoir (Delaware County) - This 912acre site north of Columbus is a good place to catch largemouth bass and channel catfish. For largemouths, try plastics, spinners and crankbaits around shoreline cover; target drop-offs and points. Channel cats can be caught on cut bait, nightcrawlers and shrimp fished on the bottom; fish the flats in the south end and the river channel in the north end. Crappie are being caught in the channel around woody cover using minnows and jigs. NORTHWEST OHIO Clear Fork Reservoir (Richland/Morrow counties) Located just 8 miles south of Mansfield along SR 97, this 971acre site is well known for its muskellunge population; it is one of the 8 lakes stocked in Ohio. However, the reservoir also has good populations of largemouth bass and bluegill. Bluegill fishing should be excellent now with fish ranging from 5-7 inches, with an occasional 9-incher being taken; try wax worms or worm pieces under a bobber along the edges of weed beds. Largemouth bass fishing should also be excellent; try jigs tipped with pork fished near structure located on the bottom. There are three picnic areas with access to the lake located along the south side. Shore fishing is only allowed along the south and west shorelines from the Orewiler Road bridge to a point 1,000 feet upstream of the

dam. There are no motor size restrictions but an 8-mph speed limit is enforced by the city of Mansfield. Pleasant Hill Reservoir (Richland-Ashland County line) - With 781 acres of water and 13 miles of shoreline, this site — located next to Mohican State Forest, 2 miles southwest of Perrysville — has plenty to offer. The boat ramp and marina are located on Covert Road, right off SR 95. Water levels are at normal levels right now. Good numbers of crappie from 9-10 inches can be found; try minnows under a slip bobber in 8-12 feet of water near submerged trees. Catfish and yellow perch can also be caught using worms fished on the bottom near the fishing dock. Killdeer Plains Pond #30 (Wyandot County) - This pond is located southeast of Harpster, off TWP Highway 125; just south of the railroad tracks, turn west and follow the gravel lane back to the pond. Largemouth bass should be biting now; try the west bank in the mornings or evenings with a weedless soft top-water bait over the weed beds. A jig-andpig fished along the weed line and in open-water pockets is also effective. No ramp is available; however, small boats may be used with a 10-HP limit. Wading is also popular along the east and south shores. NORTHEAST OHIO West Branch Reservoir (Portage County) - Persistence is the name of the game for pursuing one of Ohio’s largest sport fish - the muskie; one photo of a landed muskie can take your status among your fishing buddies from a worm-drowner to a fishing legend. This site offers an excellent opportunity to land one of these status-changers but it requires putting a decent amount of time in; according to last year’s creel survey results, those pursuing muskies had a catch rate of one for every 20 hours of fishing. The action has picked up in the last week with quite a few landed muskies; spend more time trolling open water with crankbaits just above the thermo-

cline level. Be sure to use linecounter reels for accurate trolling depths and talk to local muskie fishermen and fish biologists for information on how deep to fish. Muskies can still be caught casting off the ends of deep bars, humps and standing timber with lures that will retrieve in the 6- to 10-foot range. Portage Lakes (Summit County) - Spool the reels, sort the tackle, hook up the trailer, gas up the boat, etc...A day out on the lake fishing can sometimes feel like a lot of work. You may find it refreshing to go back to the basics and head out for some panfish here. Grab the ultralight, a small container filled with pin-mins, split-shots and a couple of bobbers and throw it all into a bucket; a quick stop at the local bait shop for some wax worms and you are ready to go. Nice catches of bluegill, redears and pumpkinseeds have all been reported this past week here. There are several areas where there is shoreline access; focus on either woody snags or the edges of weed lines. SOUTHEAST OHIO Piedmont Lake (Belmont County) - Largemouth bass fishing should start picking up; use a variety of crank/spinner baits cast along the shoreline. Shad will start moving into the lower end, making shad-colored baits the most successful. Smallmouth bass should also be biting well; try shallow points in 3-5 feet of water in the early evening, night or early morning. Tube jigs are popular, as are spinner baits which can be used with a slow retrieve or allowed to helicopter down. Catfish anglers should find continued success by tight-lining off the bottom with cut bait, chicken liver and nightcrawlers. AEP ReCreation Land (Morgan/Noble counties) Anglers can start to expect success for largemouth bass, sunfish and channel catfish. For an effective bass rig, try black plastic worms during daytime or top buzz baits during the night and early dusk; anglers also like Power Worms in dark colors

which include purple, motor oil and black. Sunfish can be caught with basic wax worms and bobber but quality is limited except were anglers walk off to more excluded water areas. Catfish can be caught using stink baits and nightcrawlers. SOUTHWEST OHIO Caesar Creek (Clinton/ Greene/Warren counties) Those casting in-line spinners and crankbaits are catching muskellunge here and in smaller creeks leading into the lake; if you catch one, please report it to the DOW’s Muskie Angler Log at http://www.ohiodnr. com/muskielog/welcome.aspx, developed in partnership with the Ohio Muskie Anglers as a resource and to support management efforts by providing valuable catch data to the division. Saugeye anglers are catching a few 15- to 18-inch fish from 6- to 15-foot depths but most are small; troll medium- or deep-diving crankbaits along submerged points or underwater humps, cast or drift with live nightcrawlers on a bottom-bouncing harness rig or use a lead-head jig tipped with a piece of worm in the early morning and early evening. Channel catfish are being caught by shore anglers using nightcrawlers, shrimp and chicken livers tight-lined along the bottom in 5- to 8-foot depths. C.J. Brown Reservoir (Clark County) - A few walleye are being caught using crankbaits, jigs with plastic bodies or curly tails, small spinners or live minnows, leaches or nightcrawlers; good curly-tail color choices are white, orange, pink and chartreuse. Fish by slowly jigging, trolling or drifting baits in 10- to 15-foot depths; anglers report that the most successful bait has been silver or gold blade baits in the main lake river channel, around structure and over the humps in the very early morning. Most are undersized but some legal fish are being caught. REMEMBER all walleye less than 15 inches must be immediately released. Channel cats are being caught using shad, shrimp, nightcrawlers and chicken livers

in the upper end tight-line or slowly drifting the bait along the bottom in 3- to 6-foot depths. OHIO RIVER Belleville Pool Area Catches of sport fish have been slow but anglers are catching some black bass on a variety of lures, including spinner baits, drop-shots and crankbaits. Catfish are biting fairly well throughout, both for shore and boat anglers; flatheads are being caught on live baitfish on bottom near drop-offs and structure. Channel cats are being caught everywhere using nightcrawlers, chicken livers, old shrimp and ripened chicken breasts seasoned with garlic powder or garlic salt; anglers also report some sizable freshwater drum as incidental catches. Western Ohio River (Cincinnati to Adams County) Fishing has been slow with most action around Meldahl Dam or the tributaries running into the river; try chicken livers or cut bait for catfish. Blue cats are being taken in the downtown Cincinnati area on skip jack. LAKE ERIE Daily Bag Limit (per person) Regulations to Remember: Walleye (on Ohio waters of Lake Erie) - 6 (minimum size limit is 15 inches); Yellow perch (on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie) - 30; Trout/salmon - 2 (minimum size limit is 12”); Black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) - 5 (minimum size limit is 14”). Western Basin: Walleye fishing has been good NE of Niagara Reef and “C” can of the Camp Perry firing range and W of Rattlesnake Island; trollers have been using worm harnesses with inline weights or divers, plus divers with spoons. ... Yellow perch fishing has been good, with the best spots being the Toledo harbor light, buoy 13 of the Toledo shipping channel, around “B” and “C” cans of the Camp Perry firing range, W of Green and Rattlesnake islands and between Lakeside and Kelleys Island; perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most. Central Basin: Walleye fish-

ing has been good offshore at the weather buoy near the Canadian border N of Vermilion. Excellent fishing continues in 70-71 feet of water NE of Ashtabula; trollers are using wire-line off planer boards and dipsy divers, with purple, pink, blue, green, orange and brown spoons and stick baits. ... Yellow perch fishing has been good E of the Huron River channel buoys and off of the Castle near Ruggles Reef. Farther east, fishing has been excellent, especially in 47-53’ of water NE of the Cuyahoga River (water intake crib), in 52-53’ N of Wildwood State Park, in 51-58’ NW of Fairport Harbor (the hump) and in 57-58’ N of Conneaut; perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most. The best shore fishing spots are the Cleveland Piers and at Headlands Beach Pier in Mentor and the Fairport Harbor Pier using spreaders with shiners in the mornings and evenings. ... Smallmouth bass fishing has been very good at 15-23’ around harbor areas in Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula and Conneaut; this past week, anglers are having good luck using crayfish, dropshot rigs and tube jigs. ... White bass has been spotty but can pick up at any time; try near shore in 15-30’ N of Cleveland Harbor, NE of Gordon Park (Bratenahl) and in 10-20’ N of Eastlake CEI. Look for gulls feeding on schools of shiners at the surface; the bass will be below the shiners. Shore anglers are catching bass off the Eastlake CEI breakwall using agitators with jigs tipped with twister tails or using small spoons. ... Steelhead trout anglers are catching a few fish while trolling for walleye off Ashtabula; some large ones have been caught. See locations for walleye above. ... The water temperature is 73 degrees off of Toledo and 73 degrees off of Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine forecast. Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2012 A busier than usual social life is likely to be in the offing for you in the year ahead. What makes this so different is the fact that you could find yourself involved with several different and unrelated groups of people. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -You could be a bit too vulnerable to financial and material losses. Protect your prized possessions, and don’t waste money on any pie-in-the-sky ventures. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Before any type of action is taken, it’s imperative that both you and your cohort are in accord as to how an important issue should be accomplished. Do nothing without agreement. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You’re endowed with exceptionally sharp, critical faculties that are a tremendous asset when used constructively. Sadly, today you aren’t likely to put them to good use. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Be extra careful about how you handle money matters, whether they are your own funds or someone else’s. Trying to turn too large a profit could be an exercise in futility. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There is a strong chance you’ll have to adjust your plans to accommodate the demands of others. Even though what they want may be annoying, don’t let it spoil your day. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Fail to be an attentive listener and it will work to your detriment. This could be especially true if someone is giving you complex instructions about something you hope to do later. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Under no circumstances should you yield to peer pressure and do things that fail to serve your best interests. If there are consequences attached, you’ll suffer alone. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your behavior is likely to be scrutinized by others, and they won’t be focusing on what you do right, but on what you’re doing wrong. Don’t give them fodder. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Anxieties and apprehensions should not be interpreted as intuitive perceptions. Recognize them for what they are: self-induced, negative imaginings. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -It is advisable to avoid a friend who always has all kinds of self-image problems. He or she is in a creative mood and will happily dream some up for you as well. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- In order for a joint endeavor to be successful, you must clearly define beforehand the responsibilities and duties of each party involved. Not doing so will lead to failure. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Attitude is everything, whether you are working or at play. If yours is negative, don’t expect any favorable results for anything you undertake. Thinking like a loser makes you one. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2012 If you show strong initiative and much diligence, you won’t go unrewarded in the year ahead. Set some serious goals and use your assets wisely in order to make your mark in the world both socially and materially. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Involvement with some bold and daring friends will do your cautious nature a lot of good. Keep an open mind and figure out what you can learn from these chums. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Onthe-spot decision-making won’t work out too well for you at present. Take plenty of time to weigh and balance all critical issues. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -In order for the day to be meaningful, it’s important that you spend some time on things on important matters. If you waste your time fooling around and doing nothing, you’ll regret it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- As long as you don’t involve yourself with persons who take games too seriously, activities that have elements of friendly competition could be very gratifying for you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Even though you might have some disturbing factors to deal with, once you start a task or an assignment, chances are you will follow it through to its conclusion. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -There are a number of friends you’ve been too busy to see lately who are anxious to get together with you. If you know who they are, surprise them by contacting them for a chat. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Things will work out well for you in areas where you focus your attention. You’ll be able to generate some great ideas to make or save money, if you put your mind to it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Assume the initiative instead of waiting to be taken care of by others, especially if you want certain things to be done now. Others can wait -you can’t. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Even if you should find yourself in a quiet, reclusive mood, you can use it productively. Clean up all those jobs that you need to do alone. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Don’t allow your social interests to dominate you to a point that it causes you to set aside or reschedule several urgent matters. Important things you neglect now will jump up and bite you later on. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -In order to be successful, you need to know what you want, how you want it done and when you’re going to do it. What you put off doing until later will never get done. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you’ve already made a decision about something, stop rehashing it and get on with it. Overanalyzing it will merely confuse you further and completely jam up your flow. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 Friends and associates are likely to play constructive roles in important affairs in the year ahead, especially in areas that you think need some improvement. With everybody pitching in to help, it’s inevitable that you’ll succeed. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -The social sphere in which you’ll be operating is likely to be charged with an air of expectancy. You’ll love it, because it tends to make everything seem more exciting. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Because you’re prepared to work for what you get, you’ll be in an extremely favorable financial cycle. You won’t expect any free rides, and the rewards will seem bigger because of this. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A friend in whom you place considerable confidence will have several constructive suggestions for you. Give his or her ideas a shot -- they are likely to help you resolve a problem. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Conditions look to be favorable, but your greatest breaks are likely to come in the financial or commercial realms, even though you may not be looking them in those quarters. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) -- You’re presently in an extremely favorable cycle in terms of popularity. Before the period is over, you could pick up scads of new friends and admirers. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Instinctively, you will know how to make some pretty smart moves in order to give your family certain things they desire. Just do what comes naturally, and you’ll come out ahead. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You always seem to have an abundance of ideas that are extremely satisfying and feasible, and they’ll be better than usual at present. Share your thinking with those who’ll appreciate it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Your chances for getting something that you really want are better than usual at this time. If you have enough motivation, you won’t hesitate to go after the big fish. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -It shouldn’t be too difficult for you to recognize that someone else’s idea is valuable. What you do with it, however, will make it either better or useless. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Being one of those days when you’re extremely resourceful, you should easily be able to put your talents to work, especially in matters that pertain to your career. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Any suggestion you make is likely to be a good one, especially if it’s workrelated. Don’t hesitate to express what’s on your mind. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Don’t be intimidated by challenging developments, because you are likely to perform exceptionally well when your mettle is tested. The secret is to believe in your abilities.

It would be hard to imagine a vision of Baptist life edgier than the one served up by a recent Wake Forest School of Divinity graduate named Zachary Bailes. This parable starts something like this: Once upon a time, America was dominated by giant breweries that produced rivers of ordinary beers like Budweiser, Coors and Miller Lite. Some of their local outlets grew into mega-franchises that could seat thousands of people in shopping-mall-like facilities featuring giant video screens, pop-rock bands and witty Baby Boomer hosts who were treated like superstars. But eventually many young adults grew restless, yearning for brews with more local character, spice and charm, robust beers like People’s Porter, Cottonwood Endo, Carolina Blonde and myriad others. Some created Craft Beer collectives and then taprooms, spreading the word about this emerging do-it-yourself beer lifestyle. So here is the church-growth gospel according to Bailes: If churches want to reach millions of independent-minded young Americans, they should learn a thing or two from craft brewers. Yes, he thinks this is true for Baptists who don’t drink beer, as well as the many Baptists who -- reality alert -- down a few cold ones now and then. It’s time, he said, for “craft churches” that

reach niche audiences. “Many people, and especially young adults, are willing to pay more for a quality product. ... Opting to shy away from the typical, freezing cold, American light beer, brewers and imbibers desire something with character and distinct flavor,” argued Bailes in an Associated Baptist Press commentary. He also edits the “Crazy Liberals and Conservatives” website. “In an era where churches experience lower attendance rates, perhaps we would be well served to look into ‘craft churches.’ Craft brewers do not create the product to be the next ‘big beer’ producer, but rather isolate and engage a community. Megachurch models still work for some, but they have become the standard flavor without any distinct flavor.” On one level, it’s easy to see this parable as a harsh judgment on decades of Evangelical

Protestant megachurch culture. But the reality in America’s increasingly post-denominational age is more complex than that, a fact liberal Christians such as himself must acknowledge, said Bailes, in a telephone interview. Truth is, growth in most of America’s “giant breweries,” the major denominations in this scenario, peaked in the mid-20th century and many have been in demographic freefall for decades, especially on the doctrinal left. The Southern Baptist Convention continued to grow -- driven by megachurches and growing ministries with Latinos and AfricanAmericans -- until the past five years, when small declines slipped its membership under 16 million. Meanwhile, the progressive, “moderate” Baptist camp in the wars to control the nation’s largest Protestant flock has been having its own troubles. While it’s hard to calculate a total membership statistic for congregations affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, this loose network eliminated 13 staff positions last year in the face of a nearly 20 percent budget decline. That’s the bad news, said Bailes. The good news is that Baptist life is rooted in a tradition flexible enough to allow independent-minded believers to start their own niche congregations that can speak to an age in America “in which, to be blunt about it, the church isn’t

the big dog on campus like it used to be,” he said. However, focusing new ministries on “craft churches” that target urbanites, college communities, artists and other hip, young demographics could, he acknowledged, lead to the theological equivalent of “beer snobbery” in which insiders are tempted to look down on the less enlightened. The key, he argued, is to keep focusing on the needs of local communities and then to build networks of church leaders who share what they have learned. “What would a more ‘robust’ church style look like? ... By focusing on the depth and flavor of the spiritual life offered, perhaps younger adults will drink deeper from the well of the local church,” argued Bailes, in his essay. “Wherever one stands on the issue of drinking, one element cannot be ignored: In what may be one of the largest industries in the United States, small, craft brewers are experiencing growth, not big-name brewers. Though many who read this might look over their shoulder when they walk into the beer aisle, or stay quiet about the ‘fruits of the vine,’ perhaps beer can teach us something.”
