Yanks beat O’s, advance to ALCS

NEW YORK (AP) — CC Sabathia turned and looked over his right shoulder, watching intently after Nate McLouth turned on a 93 mph fastball and sent it soaring down the right-field line. Yankees-Orioles. Playoffs. Disputed home run. Again. McLouth’s long drive was called foul by the slimmest of margins — hello, Jeffrey Maier — and New York hung on to beat Baltimore 3-1 Friday in the deciding Game 5 of the AL division series. With Alex Rodriguez benched, the Yankees advanced to the AL championship series against the Detroit Tigers, starting tonight in the Bronx. “It is still a long way to go,” Sabathia said. “I still got hopefully three or four more starts. So the job is not done yet.” Sabathia pitched a four-hitter, wriggling out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth inning for his first complete game in 17 postseason starts, the first for the Yankees since Roger Clemens in 2000. Mostly cloudy tonight with a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the lower 60s. Mostly cloudy Sunday with a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the morning, then showers likely and chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Windy. Highs around 70. Lows in the upper 40s.

Hesse enjoying adventure
German student Alicia Hesse with her host mom, Jennifer Moenter. BY STACY TAFF DELPHOS—Most of the German students who come to Delphos via the friendship pact with Verl, Germany choose to come in order to improve their English. For 15 year-old Alicia Hesse, spending time in America is a way to shake things up. “I came to learn the language better and to meet new people,” she said. “I wanted to get to know the culture and live a different daily life.” Hesse was understandably nervous when she arrived but she soon began to enjoy the excitement of being somewhere new. “Before I came here, I thought I could speak the language very well and fast but it took me about a month to catch up,” she said. “At first, I was very scared to speak and was afraid I wouldn’t understand people. Now I think I can understand pretty well.” During her time in Delphos, Hesse is staying with the family of Jennifer and Scott Moenter. “My host parents have three children, one is 16 and the two little ones are 5 and 6,” Hesse said. “At home, I have a 10-year-old brother. My mother works in a bank and my father has his own business. “The first few weeks after getting here, we did a lot of fun things. We went to the lake and then to Cedar Point. All of us girl exchange students stayed in a houseboat together at the lake,” she said. “I’m really excited for the Chicago trip in November. It’s all kind of been an adventure here.” While she is here, Hesse is attending St. John’s High School as a junior. With all six of this year’s exchange students at St. John’s, Hesse can look forward to familiar faces at school. “All four of us girls were friends before we came here. We went to the same school,” she said. “The two boys went to a different school so I didn’t know them but we’ve become friends. “School is really different here. My favorite sub-

Bradley 2012 Delphos Herald ‘News Carrier of Year’
Staff reports DELPHOS — The Delphos Herald selects an annual “News Carrier of the Year” in conjunction with International Newspaper Carrier Day. This year’s honored carrier is Mitchell Bradley. Mitchell, 13, is the son of Lindsey and Kaye Bradley. He has two older sisters, Sydney, 20, and Paige, 17. He has officially been a carrier since July 2011. Before 2011 he helped Paige, with her routes. His routes include East Second Street, East Third Street, Elida Avenue, Douglas Street and the downtown Main Street area. Mitchell is in the seventh grade at St. John’s. He likes to golf, play baseball and have air soft wars. He also enjoys building model trains, attending hobby train shows and flying model planes. When not delivering The Delphos Herald, Mitchell enjoys attending Mass. He likes to spend time working on his model train set and riding his bike. He also likes to collect baseball cards and old comic books. In his spare time he enjoys listening to classic Rock-nRoll music, like the Beatles and The Who. Mitchell can often be seen walking with his dad and his dog Phoebe. He loves to eat at Tony Packo’s and Frisch’s Big Boy. A number of requirements must be met to qualify for this elite honor. Mitchell has exceeded these requirements for receiving “Carrier of the Year”. Recently a survey was done where customers could voice their opinions as to why their carrier should receive this award. Some of the comments regarding Mitchell were: “He never misses a delivery; he is always on time; he is very polite & respectful; he is concerned with customer’s needs and puts the paper where requested, he always has a smile, and he takes time to talk to his customers.” As Carrier of the Year, Mitchell will receive a plaque, certificate and gifts from the Herald.


It’s My Hobby

ject here and in Germany is art. I prefer the art class here because in Germany all we do it just draw pictures. Here I like it better because we can do big projects, so it’s more fun. “At home I play volleyball and I’m in dance,” she added. “I could probably practice with the volleyball team here but it’s the first weeks of school so I have a lot of homework. Maybe I will sometime soon.” While she’s been enjoying her time at St. John’s, one thing Hesse is getting used to is the dress code. “I don’t like the uniforms,” she said. “In Germany we don’t have uniforms.” While Hesse doesn’t have any set plans for college or her future, she knows would like to come back to the United States. “I want to come back,” she added. “I’ve even thought about moving here someday. The people are really nice. I really like the food, too, especially the Pop Tarts.” Hesse and the other five cultural exchange students will leave for home on Dec. 8.

Rahrig runs ‘sting operation’ in woods
BY STACY TAFF DELPHOS—The next time you squeeze honey onto your toast or in your tea, take a moment to think about how much work it takes a honey bee to make it. “Each bee makes roughly half a teaspoon of honey in its life,” local beekeeper Tess Rahrig said. “All that work for that small amount. In the hive there is the queen, the drones and the worker bees. The worker bees work themselves to death for the queen. During really cold weather, they even huddle together in a big ball around the queen to keep her warm.” Rahrig and her husband, Keith, began keeping bees after their son Justin started the endeavor for an FFA project. Once he graduated, they kept it up. “We started here at the house with two hives and then we found out that our neighbors were very allergic,” Ragrig said. “So then we moved them to Venedocia because my brother-in-law has some woods over there.” Since Rahrig works for the U.S. Postal Service as a rural carrier and her husband Keith owns K&K Builders in Delphos, beekeeping is their hobby. “In the spring we’ll go out and add supers to the hives. Those are frames we put in that the bees build their honeycomb in and fill it with honey and then cap it,” Rahrig said. “If the bees fill up one of the supers, then we can

add another and they can get pretty tall. One year I had to get on a step-ladder because the hive was so high.” Rahrig says that when the time comes to open the hive, they will either smoke the hive to temporarily subdue the bees or apply a special substance to the top of the hive. “We’ll put this stuff at the top that smells really bad and the bees will go to the bottom of the hive so we can open the top,” she said. “After we get the honeycomb out, we put it in an extractor and it spins all of the honey out. When you extract the honey it’s a liquid, but if you let the air get to it, it can crystallize and then you just put the jar See BEES, page 2

A bumpy ride
In the coming weeks, we will be bombarded by political ads posturing about the good (them), the bad and the ugly (their opponent). We’re smart enough to figure out not everything in political ads is necessarily true. Apparently, it doesn’t have to be. It just has to get your attention. The more you hear a name, the more likely you are to check that box on election day, especially if it’s a state or national candidate you really don’t know much about. They are counting on it. That’s why you have to do more than just hide the puppies. You have to educate yourself so you can make the best decision possible. I’m not saying there isn’t a possibility of disappointment even with an informed choice. We all know that once a politician gets in office, the likelihood of keeping his or her promises drops dramatically. Heck, half the things they promise they can’t deliver anyway because they have no control over them. Seems we should know that. If the other half of their promises don’t pan out, they blame someone else. We are one of the few countries that has a true electoral system. Along with that, we also have a huge population of uninformed voters. Not a good imbalance. Rather a dangerous combination. You can watch the ads if you want. I suppose at some point, it’s better than nothing. On the other hand, why not turn off the TV and do a little research. If your candidate of inquiry is an incumbent for state or national office, you can find their voting record. See if they put up or shut up. If they are new to the game, Google ‘em.

On the Other hand
you’ll find it. We have the power to shape our destiny. We can do it one candidate at a time; one race at a time; one vote at a time. If you are unhappy about the ways things are being done, use your vote to change it. I’m going to borrow a high-profile candidate’s slogan, “If you don’t like what’s going on in Washington, change who you send to Washington.” I’m not supporting this candidate but what he says makes sense. I feel a sense of helplessness when I see Washington making decisions that are really bad for us. I am frustrated that they are now on the campaign trail instead of in session hammering out a budget and taking care of business. If I just ran off and stopped doing my job, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have a job when I came back. And I surely wouldn’t be guaranteed a raise each year. I watch in wonder as continually manage to rally a vote for something that benefits them in some way. Buckle up guys. Regardless of what happens next month, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

in some hot water and it goes back to liquid form. “We filter the honey so you don’t get any debris or bees wings or anything in it. We’ll store the honey in five gallon buckets and as we get orders we’ll bottle it up.” In addition to the honey they bottle and sell, the Rahrigs also make use of the honeycomb and beeswax. “One of the things we always get requests for is the honeycomb. People like to eat it,” Rahrig said. “We harvest that once a year around August. We usually get about 40 pounds of it off one hive. This year we only had five hives since it was such a dry summer; the blossoms just weren’t there. “When we take the beeswax off we clean it, wash all the honey off,” she continued. “Then we’ll melt it down and filter through a cloth to get down to just pure beeswax. With that we make things like our Bee Balms, which are lip balms made with just beeswax and honey. We also make Bee Bars that you just rub into dry skin. For those we use beeswax, sweet almond oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and vitamin e oil.” Occasionally the Rahrigs get the chance to add bees to their hives and help people out at the same time by removing unwanted swarms.

“You’ll see swarms in different places or people will call to have us come and remove them,” Rahrig said. “We’ll shake them into a box and then we might have to keep them at our house for a day or two before we can take them to the hives. It’s really interesting watching them. Some swarms have about 10,000 to 20,000 bees.“ Understandably there are some risks associated with keeping bees but Rahrig says she enjoys every part of beekeeping. “Obviously you have to be careful about stings, especially when you’re allergic, so we wear the full protective equipment,” she said. “My husband is even a little allergic, you just have to be careful. One thing I think might not be for everyone is the stickiness. It’s honey, so it’s going to be sticky and some people might not like dealing with that.” When they retire from their respective jobs, Rahrig says she and her husband hope to keep up with their beekeeping. “I hope to still be doing this because I really enjoy it,” she said. “It’s easy and it’s a way to make a little extra money. People don’t do this as much as they used to but at one time, the Delphos and Landeck area was the honeybee capital of the world. Everybody kept bees back then and the honey would be shipped all over.”

The original structure and another on Third Street were built by the Massillon Bridge Company and stood for many years. According to the May 31, 1930, Delphos Herald, local scrap dealer “Nathan Liff, of Delphos, was given the contract by Allen and Van Wert county commissioners for the wrecking of the overhead framework of the Second and Third street

canal bridges. Workmen started at the Third Street bridge Thursday. Removing the counter-balance weights there is no small task. These are sheet-iron boxes filled with many tons of concrete. While the work is going rather slowly, they expect little difficulty at the Second Street bridge.” The museum recently received a working model

of the Second Street bridge, complete with counter-balance weights and a chain pulley to lift the bridge and allow canal boats to pass. This model was made and donated by Bill Hemker who worked from several pictures of the structure. It makes a nice addition, allowing visitors, especially children, to see how lift bridges actually worked.

“There are some things one can only achieve by a deliberate leap in the opposite direction. One has to go abroad in order to find the home one has lost.” — Franz Kafka, Austrian author (1883-1924)

by HELEN KAVERMAN Recently I was invited to the meeting of the Landeck CL of C Ladies. What an interesting evening with that fun loving group. The topic for the meeting was Reminiscence. Catherine Heitz, president, led the conversations with questions from a book “To Our Children’s Children”, subtitled “Preserving Family History for Generations to Come,” by Bob Green and D. G. Fulford. The idea of using this topic was to encourage people to write their life story, or memoir so that our children’s children and so on down the line can read what life was like when we were growing up. My friend Irma from Kalida wrote “The Life and Times of Irma Miller Wehri Morman.” Irma actually wrote four editions of her autobiography. Her first effort was only 16 pages but her fourth manuscript, taking her to 2006, has 225 hand written pages with pictures. It is very interesting, even if you are not part of the family. Alice Heitmeyer’s biography was written by her daughter Mary. Alice has passed away but she kept a daily journal, which was very helpful to Mary. Alice and I often traveled together and she kept a daily journal of our travels, which is very enjoyable to me. I know several people who have written very interesting life stories, including my uncle and aunt, Ralph and Christine. Both are interesting but her story tells about life in Germany, in the 30s and 40s, when Hitler was in power. Those of us who live in our free country of America can not imagine the horrors under Hitler. As we reminisced at the C L of C meeting; we wondered “How did we survive?” We didn’t have car seats for the kids. Catherine remembered her Ruen family of 11 all piled into their 1936 Chevy to go anywhere. Each had an appointed spot to sit. Mom and Dad had the front seat with the two youngest children. We got on the subject of barns and how they are disappearing from the country side. Someone gave me a list of 30 barns that once graced the landscape around Landeck but are no more. Some went down with the 1948 tornado and several in the area went down with the big storm of June 29. Even pole barns blew down in that storm. Barns provided a favorite place to play—like swinging on the ropes or jumping from the hay mow into a pile of hay. Many barns became home basketball courts. When we moved to the country in 1963, we were fortunate to have an old barn on the farm. It was a great attraction for our kids and all the “town” kids who came to play. One Sunday, Bill and his friends made tunnels in the bales of hay in the mow. It was very exciting and fun until my Dad discovered the situation. He made them quit because of the danger of someone getting trapped if the bales came down on someone. Theresa Rahrig told the story of her father, Omer Pothast, sitting on the sling attached to the ropes used for pulling up hay into the mow. Tess’ brothers pulled on the rope, taking their Dad to the top of the barn; then they ran away. Her Dad told Tess (who was just 4 or 5 years old) how to pull on the rope to get him back down. I’ll bet that wasn’t the end of the story! We talked about the things our kids did while growing up. Ruth Hammons had twins who loved to play with the pots and pans in the kitchen. (Mine did that too. They did their “cooking” on the floor.) One twin disappeared so Ruth went on the hunt. She found the child sleeping in the cupboard. The other one had closed the door on his sibling. Ruth had many good stories to tell. One lady told of driving down the road at a higher speed than allowed. She was stopped by the State Highway Patrol, who was kind to just give her a warning when one of the boys popped his head over the seat, saying “My mom always drives like this!” Catherine Heitz told of her husband, Mel, falling asleep in church. Little four year old Kevin said “Dad! Wake up! Nobody else is sleeping!” Helen Geise Kimmett and I were country neighbors. On Sunday afternoon, we played softball in the Geise cow pasture along Rt. 190. The Rode kids also came over and sometimes the Trenkamp kids joined us. We had to watch where we stepped. Helen said we used some of those dried up ones for bases. In the winter, when the Jennings Creek was frozen over, we walked or skated from their house to the railroad bridge. Did you ever hear of or see any dung beetles? Several women told how fascinating it was to watch these beetles roll a ball of dung down the dirt cow path. My mom always got the cows in at milking time so I don’t remember these little critters or insects. When you talk about Landeck, the story of the 1948 tornado always comes up. It was “about” noon on St. Joseph’s Day, March 19. Most people are aware that two little boys died in church when the steeple crashed down on them. Other kids were playing outside when the weather became “weird.” We didn’t have warning sirens or TV at that time. When one of the Sisters (a teacher) rang the bell early for the kids to get inside, there were three boys who didn’t want to go in early so they hid in the “outhouse” The three of them, Melvin Heitz, Joe Youngpeter and Tom Trentman, were hiding in there when the tornado hit. They saw the little old privy lift up off the foundation, so they ran to school for cover. Hups Kaverman was a young man of 23 at that time (before I knew him). Hups was a mechanic in Delphos who went home (to Landeck on State Road) for a good home-cooked lunch. When it got windy, he went to the basement to close the windows. He looked to the southwest and was shocked. He told his parents, “The church steeple is gone.” His youngest brother, Ralph was a student at “Landeck University” at that time. Hups tore off in his car for Landeck. He and Art Rode Sr. were first to arrive. Telephone lines were down so the priest sent them to Delphos for help. Both funeral homes had ambulance service at that time. That was a very sad day in Landeck. One question asked by Catherine was “What was the weirdest or most fascinating room in your house?” For us, it must have been the attic, over the garage. My brother and his wife are my next door neighbors. Our kids grew up together and one of their favorite places to play was in our attic. Last summer the girls came over to visit. “Can we go to the attic?” They brought members of the next

generation along to visit that special place. There are still many “treasures” up there. So now you get the idea! My mother filled in the little book “Grandma’s Journal,” dated January 1986. That was shortly after Dad died and my mom passed away at the age of 90 in 2007. We found the book among her things. It’s very precious. One question in the book was: “Did you have an attic? A basement?’ Mom’s answer to the basement question was: “Basement – yes – in the 1913 flood I rode around in the tub — and I had a wooden paddle used to stomp clothes for washing – my Mother made. Water was up to the third step.” She also mentioned that “Main Street was a mud street and sidewalks were of wood boards.” You can buy these little books like “Grandmother’s Gift – A Memory Book for My Grandchild” or “A Grandparents Book” or use a

three ring binder. I did write my husbands biography a couple years ago and gave it to my kids and grandchildren for Christmas. Don’t forget to write names on the backs of your pictures. Now I guess I better practice what I preach. Here’s a little quote form one of these grandparent books: “When your grandchildren know and understand your life story, they will better understand who they are and how they got where they are – their heritage, their background and their roots.” Promise yourself to take on this project during the winter, with the snow and ice all around. Keep the book near your easy chair and write when your thoughts come to mind. Just one more thing the CL of C social committee topped the evening off with a very delicious made from scratch Angel Food Cake.

Wildcats whomp Commodores Jays hold off Versailles in nail-bitter
By JIM METCALFE PERRY TOWNSHIP — Jefferson got its running game clicking again behind the 2-headed tandem of senior tailback Drew Kortokrax and senior fullback Quinten Wessell as the Wildcats overwhelmed Perry 47-10 in non-conference gridiron action Friday night at Bob Lee Stadium. Kortokrax, subbing for injured 1,000-yard rusher Zavier Buzard, amassed 159 yards rushing on 15 totes and two scores, while Wessell added 11 carries for 106 yards and four touchdowns. Junior quarterback Austin Jettinghoff threw in seven carries for 73 yards; he completed 1-of-3 passes for 40 yards (junior Ross Thompson). “We felt we could establish the line of scrimmage early, especially running the football, and we did. We had a lull in the second quarter and challenged the kids at halftime to get back the intensity; they did,” Jefferson coach Bub Lindeman. “It came down to the execution of our offensive line. They did a great job up there and we had a lot of running room. It was nice to get all three runners really involved.” For Perry coach Jesse Kill, it was all about Jefferson. “That was a very good team we played well against for three quarters. I was very impressed with their lines on both sides of the ball,” Kill noted. “We’re going in the right direction but we’re not as good as Jefferson is. They were too good.” Perry (3-5) garnered two first downs in their first drives (one via a late hit on the Wildcats) before a fumble recovered by Wildcat senior Zac Bland ended that threat. The guests (6-2) went on an 8-p lay, 54-yard drive to take advantage, all of it on the ground. At the Perry 3, Wessell burst inside right guard and was wide open to the end zone. Kortokrax tried the extra point but it was blocked by Andrew Gipson for a 6-0 lead with 4:13 left in the opening period. Delphos forced a 3-andout. Gipson punted from his 40 and Kortokrax caught the pigskin at his own 35 on the left hash. He originally gave ground but got through the traffic after that, found the near sideline and finished off the 65-yard punt return in the end zone. The 2-point conversion pass was short, leaving the scoreboard at 12-0 with 2:07 left in the first. Another 3-and-out and 42-yard Gipson punt set the visitors up at their 30. Six plays hence at the Commodore 2, an offsides call set them back and then a fumbled snap led to a recovery by Perry’s Chris Staup at the 10. After another punt, Jefferson finished off the first-half scoring with a 7-play, 57-yarder, with its only pass completion of the day overcoming an illegal block penalty. At the Perry 3, Wessell hit quick inside left guard to the end zone with 3:27 showing. The conversion pass failed, leaving an 18-0 edge. That ended up being the score heading into the third period. Junior Tyler Mox returned the secondhalf kickoff 66 yards to the Commodore 15, where it was the Kortokrax show. On play three at the 9, he took the handoff off left guard and would not be denied the tally. After a 2-pointer off the spread extra-point was called back by a penalty, Jettinghoff found Thompson for the 2-pointer and a 26-0 spread with 10:27 left in the third. The Wildcats went 54 yards in five plays on its next drive. At the Perry 17, Wessell took a handoff inside and immediately found a wideopen lane to the left sideline and the six. Kortokrax booted the PAT for a 33-0 edge at 5:50 of the stanza. Senior Chris Trusdale picked off a pass of Perry’s Brandon Neal and was credited with a 15-yard return (after an illegal block moved the ball back) but the Wildcats were rolling. At their 41, Kortokrax took a handoff inside senior left tackle Geoff Ketcham and brushed through the only tackler on his way down the left sideline and the end zone for a 59-yard TD jaunt. Kortokrax added the kick for a 40-0 bulge at 3:15 of the third. Perry went on its only drive of the night: 12 plays, 75 yards; much thanks due to four flags against the guests (33 yards). It reached the Delphos 8 for a 1st-and-goal but three plays later at the 20, Gipson nailed a 37-yard field goal for a 40-3 deficit with 9:29 left. Jefferson finished its scoring on the next drive, set up by a Kortokrax 32-yard kickoff return to the 49. Kortokrax ran for four, Wessell for 27 and then Wessell took a handoff inside left guard and bullied his way into the end zone. Kortokrax tacked on the final tally with 8:04 remaining. Perry finished its scoring with a 2-play, 76-yarder, against the second “D”. At its 18, Quis Woods (18 carries, 146 yards) took a mis-direction back to the left, found a seam and sped to the end zone with 6:50 to go. Gipson added the final point. The only negatives for Delphos were some fumbles with the snap due to a new center; senior left guard Evan Stant was moved to center Thursday due to an injury to incumbent starter, senior Colin McConnahea; and nine penalties for 78 yards. “We only found out about the injury Thursday and we had one day of preparation for Evan to get the snaps with Austin. It took some time but they finally got that handled,” Lindeman added. “The penalties, I was not pleased with. Those are things we must get corrected and we will.” Both teams return to their respective leagues Friday: Jefferson at Ada (NWC) and Perry versus Fairbanks (NWCC).

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report CENTRAL OHIO Delaware (Delaware County) - Crappies are active again in this lake north of Columbus. Minnows or jigs fished under a bobber around woody cover can put these active fish in the boat; these must be 9-plus inches or longer to keep. Largemouth bass are being caught around woody cover and in areas of high gizzard shad concentrations. A large population of channel catfish can be caught on shrimp, prepared baits and chicken livers; try the north end. Madison (Madison County) - Crappies are the target fish in this 104-acre lake west of Columbus; use minnows and a bobber around woody cover, especially in the northern half, to catch fish over 9 inches and up to 13 inches. Catfish are also being caught on shrimp, nightcrawlers and chicken livers. Electric motors only. NORTHWEST OHIO Paulding Reservoir (Paulding County) - This 67-acre reservoir — located at Reservoir Park in the village of Paulding — provides good opportunities for pursuing bluegill this time of year;

try nightcrawlers or wax worms on slip bobbers set 5-6 feet deep during the mornings and evenings reservoir wide. Only boats 16 feet or less may be used. Electric motors may be used but no gasoline engines are allowed. A $2 lifetime “boat license” is required from the village. Killdeer Plains Reservoir (Wyandot County) - Located 10 miles southwest of Upper Sandusky along SR 67, this features a new floating boat ramp and 241 acres of fishable water. Smallmouth bass should be biting this month; overcast mornings usually produce the best results right now. Try the rocks along the island and the south shore, as well as the reefs. Cast the shoreline using crayfish, crankbaits or soft baits. There is a 10-HP limit. Defiance Reservoir (Defiance County) - Located at the intersection of Canal and Kibble roads (west side of Defiance). A boat ramp is located on the northwest corner; only electric motors allowed. Constructed in 2007, it was stocked in 2008 with yellow perch, walleye, saugeye, bluegill, largemouth bass and channel catfish. This month, yellow perch have been biting; try minnows or red worms just off the bottom. Anglers have been catching fish measuring 8-11 inches from

shore, as well as from boats. LAKE ERIE Daily Bag Limit (per person) Regulations to Remember: Walleye (Ohio waters) - 6 (minimum size 15 inches); Yellow perch (Ohio waters) - 30; Trout/ Salmon - 2 through May 15 (minimum size 12”); Black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) - 5 fish (minimum size 14”). Western Basin: There have been very few walleye reports over the past week. As temperatures drop, walleye will return to the islands area. Most are caught in the fall by trolling crankbaits off of planer boards. ... Yellow perch fishing has been good when the weather has allowed, particularly 2-3 miles off Little Cedar Point, N and W of West Sister Island, N of “B” can of the Camp Perry firing range, W of Green Island, S of Rattlesnake Island, N of North Bass Island, the green buoy W of Catawba and between Kelleys Island and Marblehead. Perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Central Basin: Walleye have been caught on the sandbar between Vermilion and Lorain and around the Huron dumping grounds; not many reports are coming in from the AshtabulaConneaut area. Look for walleye in 64 feet of water 8.5 miles out N of Conneaut. Trollers are using dipsy and jet divers, or inline weights, with worm harnesses,

Week 3 was pretty good for all three of us. I went 9-3 (4-2 in the college ranks, 5-1 in the National Football League) to improve my 3-week mark to 22-14 (9-9, 13-5). Dave Boninsegna was 8-4 (4-2, 4-2) for a 3-week mark of 23-13 (13-5, 10-8). Guest Picker Brian Bassett of Van Wert Times Bulletin fame was also 8-4 (4-2, 4-2) to move the GP’s mark to 20-15 (12-5, 8-10). Bassett returns as the GP. Here are the games. College: Texas vs. Oklahoma (Cotton Bowl at Texas Fairgrounds); Stanford at Notre Dame; Oregon State at BYU; South Carolina at LSU; Texas A & M at Louisiana Tech; Iowa at Michigan State. NFL: Denver at San Diego (Monday); Cincinnati at Cleveland; Kansas City at Tampa Bay; New England at Seattle; Detroit at Philadelphia; Indianapolis at New York Jets. JIM METCALFE COLLEGE TEXAS: The Red River Rivalry is alive and well. With both quarterbacks — and I have a mea culpa for what I glowingly wrote about Landry Jones a couple of weeks ago — not exactly up to the snuff these two programs have produced lately, defenses rule this archrivalry. Longhorns get a close win. NOTRE DAME: Notre Dame has been playing very well defensively all season; the offense has been somewhat suspect. This is not the Cardinal offense of last year but the defense has been stout. Should be low-scoring but have to go with the Irish. OREGON STATE: This is not your father’s Cougars. The offense is below par and the defense is solid. BYU shut down its last opponent but don’t think they will against the

Beavers. Will be low-scoring but Beavers prevail in Provo. SOUTH CAROLINA: Another mea culpa about LSU last week. This offense is in big heap of trouble. Gamecocks defense is the equal of Tigers and the offense is better; they will get a rare victory in Death Valley. TEXAS A & M: Both teams are in the top 25 and this game is in Louisiana. I just believe that the Aggies will have just a little bit too much for the Techsters. MICHIGAN STATE: Spartans have not exactly played very well lately since loss to Buckeyes (or even before that vs. Irish). Methinks they get a little pride back this week in East Lansing. NFL: SAN DIEGO: Broncos defense has been pushed around quite a bit this year. Chargers defense might not be that strong but the offense will control the football and keep Peyton and Company off the field. CLEVELAND: Bengals allowed one to get away last week. Browns are really struggling. Some say they remain in the Geno Smith hunt — another time for that — but my trick knee tells me they get the win this week in Battle of Ohio. TAMPA BAY: Chiefs cannot be happy with their own fans this week after the booing of Cassell. They cannot be happy with the offense the way it’s been playing. Buccaneers coming off needed bye and since this is at the New Combrero, Buccos get the ‘W’. NEW ENGLAND: Seattle will at least slow down Brady and Company — some. Unfortunately, the Seahawk offense is dreadful and the Patriot ‘D’ will take advantage. DETROIT: Lions’ offense is due for breakout game. Eagles turn the ball over too much. A formula for a Detroit win in City of Brotherly Love. INDIANAPOLIS: Big and emo-

tional win for Colts last Sunday. With Andrew Luck playing unbelievably for Indy and Jets just “unbelievable”, I like Indy’s chances. DAVE BONINSEGNA College: Oklahoma: A rare 9 a.m. start for The Red River Rivalry. What used to be a huge game with big-time implications but these teams aren’t getting the highlights they used to. The Sooners have won the past two meetings and with both teams having a loss in the Big 12 already, a win is a must. Texas is averaging more points a game but Oklahoma doesn’t give up a lot. I’m going to give the Sooners the win at the Fairgrounds. Notre Dame; The Fighting Irish are off to a remarkable 5-0 start with quality wins. While 17thranked Stanford has beaten No. 7 Notre Dame the last three seasons, Saturday’s matchup appears to be a more difficult trip to South Bend. Notre Dame is coming off a 41-3 rout of Miami at Soldier Field. The Cardinal gave up 45 in a overtime win against Arizona. I like the Irish here; don’t think Stanford will be scoring 48 points this week. Oregon State at BYU; The Beavers have a 4-0 start, including quality wins over Wisconsin and ranked UCLA; Oregon State visits Provo and a BYU team that is 4-2 but facing quarterback issues of its own. Cougars coach Bronco Mendenhall announced Monday that freshman quarterback Taysom Hill is out for the season after injuring his left knee in BYU’s 6-3 victory over Utah State last Friday night. Not quite an affordable team to just squeak by, I think that with the injury, the Beavers take this one easy. South Carolina: South Carolina had a sound win over Georgia last week. The Gamecocks are enjoying its best national ranking since the

(Continued from Page 6) mid-1980s after last week’s marquee victory but the Ol’ Ball Coach isn’t ready to deem the season a success quite yet. LSU is coming off a rare regular-season defeat at the hands of Florida. I like the way South Carolina looked last week and think they will carry that over this week for a win over the Tigers. Texas A & M: These teams were to meet in the season opener but due to Hurricane Isaac, it was postponed to this week. The Aggies look to improve to 11-0 in this series Saturday night in Shreveport, where the 23rdranked Bulldogs will try to extend the nation’s longest regularseason winning streak to 13 and improve to 6-0 for the first time. Since losing 20-17 to then-No. 24 Florida in their season opener Sept. 8, the Aggies have rolled off four straight victories; I like for the Aggies to keep the streak alive and get the win. Michigan State: Iowa beat up on Minnesota last week but have bad losses to Iowa State and Central Michigan. The Spartans nearly beat Ohio State and in a like opponent pounced Central Michigan. Sparty is at home this week and I think that will be enough to push them over the top for the win. NFL: Cincinnati: The Bengals lost

a game they shouldn’t have last week and the Browns are just the Browns. Cincinnati is going to take out their frustrations on Cleveland this week and take the Battle of Ohio. Kansas City at Tampa Bay; After being knock out the game last week, Matt Cassel will sit this one out and the Chiefs will rely on backup QB Brady Quinn; though the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are off to a rough start also, their current state still might not be as troubling as the one the Chiefs find themselves in. With Quinn prepared to make his first start in almost three years, the visiting Chiefs look to avoid a third consecutive loss while trying to hand the rested Buccaneers a fourth straight defeat Sunday. The Bucs are at home and Quinn could be an easy target after not starting a game since my son Dawson was born. I will take the Bucs to get the W. New England: The Pats had a very impressive comeback last week and routed the Bills. It may not be a butt-whoopin’ on Sunday but another win for New England. Philadelphia: The Lions are looking like the Detroit team of old. Last week, the Eagles nearly knocked off the Steelers and shouldn’t have near the effort this week as they beat the Lions in Philly.

Indianapolis: The Colts are on an emotional roller-coaster with that win over Green Bay last week; the Jets are in disarray. Indy is going to be Chuckstrong again this week as they to shoot down the Jets. BRIAN BASSETT COLLEGE Texas — Coin flip. Stanford — I will never, ever pick Notre Dame to win a game.

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2012 In coming months, get out and circulate as much as possible with as many new groups as you can. You’re in a cycle where your newfound popularity could help you make interesting contacts who’ll further your interests and ambitions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you maintain a philosophical outlook, it becomes easier to envision yourself as being lucky -- and when you envision yourself to be lucky, you’ll attract many good things. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Although you feel more satisfied when you are calling the shots, you still could be exceptionally fortunate in a situation in which you have little or no say whatsoever. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -When pleasantly approached, friends can be exceptionally helpful and cooperative. This will be especially true with someone you think of as one of your more influential pals. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are presently in a trend where the rewards for work well done are more excessive than usual. This is true even for mundane jobs that are seldom acknowledged. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Be optimistic about your competitive involvements, especially those that are of a social or sports-oriented nature. These could produce several peripheral benefits in other areas. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Arrangements involving people you have close emotional ties with will prove to be mutually beneficial. Each party will have an influence in improving the other. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- By all means, listen to any advice being offered by another, but reserve the right to have the final say. You’ll do quite well at deciding what is the best alternative. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Although luck will be an important factor in the success of a big project, you still must be industrious and productive. Know how to utilize both fortune and skill, and you’ll come out on top. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -By looking out for the interests of everybody involved, you make it easier to fulfill your own expectations. You’ll gain much with a supportive network. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Keep uppermost in your mind the fact that the end results are of more significance than how you got there. Even if you don’t start out too strong, you could still be a dynamic finisher. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you are genuinely enthusiastic about something, you can easily arouse the enthusiasm of others. Friends will get caught up in the moment and help you where they can. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t be afraid to elevate your sights, especially where your finances and commercial dealings are concerned. You’ll be far luckier with big things than you will with menial affairs. MONDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2012 Many of your relationships with others could undergo a marked improvement in the year ahead. Some of your greatest opportunities will come about through your current associates, as well as some new contacts you establish. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Anything that is presently running smoothly should not be disturbed at this time, even if you think it should be doing better. Be patient, it will eventually improve much more in time. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you haven’t been too impressed by the way an associate has been handling a joint endeavor, this is good day to start calling the shots. Implement those marginal changes that need to be made. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It behooves you to flow with events, because Lady Luck will be trying to put you in the right spot at the right time. Just relax and let the rewards come to you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Strive to be optimistic and expectant and don’t be afraid to think big. The only things holding you back are the limits you put on your thinking. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - You are presently under some influences that could enhance your status and popularity with your peers. Continue to operate the way you’ve been, because it adds luster to your image. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- It isn’t likely that you would make the same types of mistakes some of your peers are making. You’ve profited from your past experiences. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you and your partner put your heads together, you’ll be able to come up with a way to generate a profit from an unusual source. Explore all options. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- In matters that affect more than one of your colleagues, base your final decision on collective reasoning instead of just your own, even if it isn’t perfect. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You could be very clever about figuring out ways to fulfill an ambitious objective. Even having numerous goals won’t put you at a disadvantage. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If certain things in your life haven’t been running as smoothly as you’d like, this is an excellent day to reorganize your affairs. Put your dealings in order for maximum efficiency. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Take advantage of this unusually effective time and tackle that tough job you’ve been putting off. You won’t find a better day to take on difficult tasks. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Because you’re such an astute thinker, the ideas you conceive will have unusually high probabilities for success, even those that take a bit of time to develop.

10 – The Herald

Saturday, October 13, 2012

OF THE YEAR...2012
Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869


The Delphos Herald selects an annual “News Carrier of the Year” in conjunction with International Newspaper Carrier Day. This year’s honored carrier is Mitchell Bradley. Mitchell, 13, is the son of Lindsey and Kaye Bradley. He has two older sisters, Sydney, 20, and Paige, 17. He has officially been a carrier since July of 2011. Before 2011 he helped his older sister, Paige with her routes. His routes include E 2nd St., E. 3rd St., Elida Ave, Douglas St., & the downtown Main St. area. Mitchell is in the 7th grade at Delphos St. John’s Jr. High. He likes to golf, play baseball, and have air soft wars. He also enjoys building model trains, attending hobby train shows, and flying model planes. When not delivering The Delphos Herald, Mitchell enjoys attending mass. He likes to spend time working on his model train set and riding his bike. He also likes to collect baseball cards and old comic books. In his spare time he enjoys listening to classic Rock-n-Roll music, like the Beatles and The Who. Mitchell can often be seen walking with his dad and his dog Phoebe. He loves to eat at Tony Packo’s and Frisch’s Big Boy. A number of requirements must be met to qualify for this elite honor. Mitchell has exceeded these requirements for receiving “Carrier of the Year”. Recently we did a survey where customers could voice their opinions as to why their carrier should receive this award. Some of the comments regarding Mitchell were: “He never misses a delivery, he is always on time, he is very polite & respectful, he is concerned with customer’s needs and puts the paper where requested, he always has a smile, and he takes time to talk to his customers.” As Carrier of the Year, Mitchell will receive a plaque, certificate and gifts from the Herald.

Congratulations Mitchell on a job well done!
We’re Especially Proud And Happy To Salute All Our Newspaper Carriers. THEY GET THE JOB DONE!
Congratulations to all the carriers for the great job you do for us!
