He has already seen one huge success. Kenneth Hamp, from a neighboring district, failed all his courses his junior year. Since starting at the DDA in August, he is close to finishing three of his failed classes and is on track to graduate on time. “Kenneth is motivated and working really hard to catch up,” Sommers said. “He is seeing success where he didn’t have it before.” Hamp is excited about his progress. “I thought I was doing better than I was my junior year,” Hamp said. “When I failed everything, I had a difficult outlook.

I can work on the assignments for one class until I’m done and I can take the tests while it’s still fresh. It has snowballed on me. I’m making a lot better progress than I expected.” Hamp’s success has also made his home life better. “I lost my parents’ trust when I failed all those classes. I had told them I was doing OK and obviously I wasn’t,” he said. “Now I’m staying in school and I have a schedule. It’s a lot lighter at home. I have regained some of their trust and it feels a lot better. A huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders and I’m going to keep trying See DDA, page 10

3 vie for vacant Allen County commissioner seat
BY STEPHANIE GROVES separate strategies that, in theory, may be a viable model to help solve budget problems. Zero-based budgeting is a line-by-line method that builds a budget from the ground up starting from zero. Noonan is convinced that zero-budgeting is the best method to use in drafting a budget. Miller’s stance is that zerobased budgeting is too timeconsuming, creates a micromanaging atmosphere and negates the hard work elected officials have put into creating current budgets. Kissick feels the approach is useful but only on a case-bycase basis. Another method to solving budget problems is privatizing non-mandated state programs that are direct-assistance operations to residents of Allen County like 911, parks and recreation and road repair. Each candidate has a different strategy to address and analyze agency operations. Noonan stresses the importance of accountability, more effort on the front end, communicating with each level and ensuring that elected officials are carrying out their responsibilities. He is confident that each agency should be looked at on a case-by-case basis before any budget revisions are made. Miller’s position is that privatizing would be too timeconsuming and not a feasible strategy. Kissick’s attention would be focused on agency travel expenses and office overhead rather than eliminating services to the community. Funding by private sources will provide a seamless transition. All three candidates acknowledged that in addition to the budget and the issue of jobs and economic development, the other top priority for the next commissioner will be addressing aging facilities and getting a handle on the county’s real estate portfolio. Noonan believes the county needs to inventory what properties it owns and establish what

Vying for the vote are Republican Cory Noonan, Democrat Connie Miller and Libertarian Don Kissick. Budget concerns are weighing heavily on Allen County residents’ minds. Each candidate agrees Allen County’s budget planning and policy will require change; however, there is adversity in their approaches to balancing the budget. The candidates have spoken on two

they can be used for, whether they are marketable, if they should be sold and if they are used effectively. He would work with the auditor and real estate agents to inventory the properties in question, develop a plan and fund repairs with sales tax revenues, since casino revenues are inconsistent. Miller is convinced the county has properties that would be good to liquidate but selling off any of them would follow an inventory of what exists now and analyzing future needs. She would look to casino revenues to fund restoration of the properties. See THREE, page 10

Am I asking too much?
I have to admit I’m stilling pouting over the lack of trick-or-treaters at my door Thursday evening. I know North Main Street is off the beaten path for most but dang it, I had candy, my porch light was on and some just turned on Ninth Street and headed east or west as I watched with a little lip quiver. Were they trying to say my candy wasn’t what it ought to be? (Stolen from The Wizard of Oz from the scene with the talking apple trees.) We had 26 little beggars. And oh, what cute little beggars they were. Some parents and children have a great affinity for dress up. I saw some very creative costumes. In the coming days, you will see some of them, too. We’ll be running them until at least through Halloween, if not beyond. We still have more Landeck, Ottoville and Fort Jennings pictures. My friend a few streets over had 60 and I was jealous. We always buy a big bowlful of candy with the intention of passing out every last piece. (Well, that’s my intention. My husband’s is to have leftovers. He has a ginormous sweet tooth that requires nearly constant attention. Me? I just sneak a bag of Smarties back and I’m good to go.) OK, back to my pout. I’m not sure how to remedy the situation and still keep the autonomy of my own porch and the ease of chatting with the neighbors in between handing out candy. In my trick-or-treat days, we went through our neighborhood and one street over each

way and called it a night. Our sacks were full. Sometimes our candy would last for months. When Cameron was of Trick-or-Treat age, I can remember throwing out picked-through bags in December. Does anyone need that much candy? Besides my husband, that is? The Trunk-or-Treat at Trinity United Methodist Church is a huge draw. It’s a safe place for kids to gather, get treats and have some fun. The adults get in on the action by decorating their trunks and wearing costumes. They don’t have to get up and answer the door every few minutes — the tricksters come to them. It’s a good gig if that’s what you’re in to. Perhaps I’m holding on to something of the past. Maybe group offerings are the wave of the future of Beggar’s Night and porches will be dark. I’m still going to hang in there and keep the tradition of sitting outside bathed in the porch light and passing out candy to those who cross over Tenth Street. I holler at the ones who head up or down Tenth to come down and get a treat. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t. Oh well, their loss.

Those Were The Days
Facing your fears – zip lining
Oct. 4 was a beautiful autumn day. The colors of the leaves on the trees were highlighted by the sun and a clear blue sky. It was a great day to be alive and I had just completed the second of 10 zip lines at the Hocking Hills World Class Canopy Tour. My legs felt like rubber, my heart was beating rapidly and it seemed as if all of the nerves in my body were on “high alert.” I was standing about 40-50 feet above the ground on a small wooden deck with no railing that was built around a tree. What crazy idea had led me to this point? Just then I saw my wife zipping toward the tree that I was standing on and I remembered; it was her crazy idea to go zip lining; not mine! Let me explain … A friend of ours had told us how much fun she had when she went zip lining with some of her friends. She told us that you wear a harness that is attached to metal cable lines or zip lines. You travel — or zip — from one station to the next. I listened to her talk about the experience but not as carefully as I should have. I was thinking these zip lines were about the height of an old fashioned clothes line, not 70 feet above the ground! Anyway, several weeks later my wife, Janie, was exercising at Curves and one of the workers there challenged the women to do something they had never done before. You guessed it – Janie said she wanted to go zip lining. Zip lining was not on my “bucket list” but I didn’t want to be a chicken, so I agreed to share the experience with her. As a pastor, I often encourage people to face their fears, trust God, and remind themselves that they/we “can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.” A lot of people have a great fear of public speaking. Some surveys indicate that many people’s fear of public speaking is greater than their fear of death. When I was a kid, I hated giving oral book reports. Yes, I was afraid of standing in front of the classroom and having to talk about a book that I had read. Although I still get a little nervous before preaching, my years of delivering sermons and making speeches when I worked in the business world have helped me to overcome the fear of public speaking. With God’s help, I have overcome many fears. However, I’m not comfortable with heights. I’ve never had a desire to bungee jump or sky dive. When I’m standing on a cliff or on a high building, I don’t like dangling my toes over the edge. I’m reminded of when Satan tried to talk Jesus into jumping from the top of a temple by quoting scripture about how God’s Son would be protected. Jesus responded by saying, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’” Perhaps my fear of heights is a result of a childhood experience that I used to dread. In 1957, my dad was the pastor of six churches located in the mountains of West Virginia and Maryland. One of those churches was located at the top of a mountain that was referred to as “Old Baldy.” It received the nickname because that part of the mountain was located next to a paper mill and most of the trees and vegetation had been killed off. Although there was a safer route to the church, my dad would take us on the mountainous gravel road above the paper mill because it was closer to our home. The road was so narrow that the only place two cars could travel at the same time was the halfway point. There wasn’t even a guard rail! It seemed like there were times that two of our tires were actually hanging off the edge of the road. It was hard not to picture our car slipping from the narrow gravel road and crashing at the bottom of the mountain. I’ve flown in airplanes several times and enjoy it. As a kid, I watched Tarzan swing through the trees in the jungle and it looked like a lot of

However, I was determined to face my fear. After completing the fourth zip line and crossing a couple of ravines on rope bridges, I was pretty sure that my heart was not going to explode. My legs had stopped shaking and I actually began to have some fun. In fact, I lost count of how many zip lines we had completed. When I landed on the final tree stand of our tour and began to look for where the next zip line led to, I realized that the only cable I could see was one that went straight down to the ground below. Our guides showed us that the only way to get to the ground would be by repelling from the tree stand. I was chosen to be the first one to leave the tree stand. As I zipped through the trees I had become used to sticking my legs out in front of me and so I repelled from the tree in the same way. I’m sure the people watching me repel laughed as they saw me land on the ground below on my bottom with my legs sticking out in front of me. Yes, I can laugh about our zip lining experience now. Janie, had a blast and would love to do it again. Me – I’m actually having more fun writing about it than I did doing it. Would I do it again? You bet! Now that I’ve faced my fear and lived to talk about it – I’d do it again. Next time, Janie wants to go on the Super Zip where you leave from a tower that is 85 feet in the air and go at speeds of more than 50 miles an hour. I faced my fear of heights but I’m not sure if I’m ready for the Super Zip. If I do go for it, I’ll keep reminding myself of the following scripture: Isaiah 41:10 Fear not; for I am with you. Be not dismayed; for I am your God. I will strengthen you; yea, I will help you; yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness. Don’t be afraid to face your fears and overcome them. You might even want to try zip lining. Now that I’ve done zip lining am I ready for sky diving? That’s not going to happen. I think if God wanted me to jump out of an airplane He’d have given me wings!

“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.” — Theodore Roosevelt, American president (1858-1919)

The Ohio Local History Alliance, a division of the Ohio Historical Society has awarded the History Outreach Award to the Fort Jennings Bicentennial Book Committee for their recent publication, “Bicentennial History of Fort Jennings 1812 – 2012.” The certificate was presented to Deborah Birkmeier and Judy Wieging as representatives of all the members of the committee, which also included Shirley Berelsman, Harold Birkmeier, Jim Dickman, Karen Dickman, Janice Freund, John Freund, Janet Hoersten, Helen Kaverman, Patricia Klir, Wes Klir, Roger Luersman, Judy Schroeder and Connie Weber. The book began as a dream of Birkmeier while she was recovering from back surgery. She began collecting data on families of the Fort Jennings community, similar to that of parish directories popular in the area. It grew and grew to include people living (or having lived) in Jennings Township, part of Jackson and Sugar Creek townships and the Jennings Local School District. Someone suggested publishing the book for sale and including the history of the area to be done to commemorate 200 hundred years of the community, founded as a supply fort during the War of 1812. A committee was formed in 2010 and met frequently in the Birkmeier home. The history begins with the Black Swamp, the War of 1812, Indian activity, early pioneers, maps,

A Legend About Ground Opening Up A legend that the ground would open if royalty came to Northwich, has just came true. Princess Maria was motoring through here on the way to Chester when a chasm 20 feet deep and 12 feet wide opened near the roadway. The princess was unaware of the phenomenon and continued on her way. Delphos Herald, July 8, 1929 ---------Widening of Road Near Delphos Asked George H. Rode and eleven other free holders of Washington Township have filed a petition with county commissioners, asking for the widening of a road, which starts at the end of Canal street in Delphos and runs parallel with the Miami and Erie Canal to the Rode farm. The road is about one-half mile in length and at present is twelve feet wide. The date of the view of the proposed improvement has been for 10:00 o’clock, the 25th instant, and the first hearing will be held in the afternoon in the county commissioners office in the courthouse.

Further details are now available, thanks to the researches of M. Therrin, and in view of the escape of Capt. Lux, they have a special interest at the present moment. It seems that the sole credit for the escape must lie with Louis Napoleon himself. He told his valet, Thelin, to buy a black wig, some rouge, a cap which was scrubbed with pumice stone and a pair of sabots. Then he cut off his mustache, put on a blue apron, a blue pair of trousers and a close-fitting shirt of course stuff. Some workmen were carrying out some repairs to that part of the fortress where the prince lodged, and this gave color to his disguise, so much so that the two watchmen entertained no suspicions regarding the man who walked past them and out the great gate, a pipe in his mouth and a plank on his shoulder. The sergeant on duty at the drawbridge was reading a letter as he passed and took no notice of him. It was then 5 o’clock in the morning. Four times that day, the

Window to the Past

last time at 5 in the afternoon, did the Governor, Damarie, send for the prince. Each time, Dr. Conneau replied that the prisoner could not see anybody because he had taken medicine. When at last the governor lost patience and went himself to the princes’ room and walked up to the bed on which the supposed invalid was lying, he discovered that a very presentable dummy had taken the place of Louis Napoleon. By that time the fugitive was over the Belgian border. Delphos Herald, Feb. 29, 1912 ---------Big Barn Fire Fire was discovered in the large Paper Mill Company barn about 6:30 Sunday evening, on north Main street, opposite the Clover Leaf shops. The blaze started in the big hay mow where 20 tons of hay had been stored last week. A sufficient portion of the lower part was saved and can be rebuilt. Twelve head of horses and two mules were in the stalls. All these were saved by the employes of the Clover Leaf, who ran to the barn, cut the straps securing the animals and drove them into the street before the flames reached them. The Clover Leaf men also laid fire from the round house and assisted in quenching the flames. The Fire Department and the Clover Leaf service made short work of the fire after the water was turned on. A quantity of harness, etc., was also saved. William Dauch, manager, had left the barn only a short

time before the fire was discovered and everything was all right when he left. The company had $1,000 insurance on the barn and $800 on the horses. The flames lighted up the sky and until the people uptown learned what was burning opinion was divided as to whether it was the Paper Mill or the Beckman residence properties. The Paper Mill is equipped with an automatic overhead sprinkler system. Part of the timber used in the construction of the big barn was shipped by the company from Muncie, Ind., saved from a structure there that was partially burned. The hook and ladder wagon was a little slow in being gotten to the fire, for the reason that new collars have not yet arrived for the new team, and it was necessary to take the team of grays from the barn at the rear of the City Building and hitch them to the truck. The firemen did very effective work, considering the fact that the run was a very long one, and usually barn fires are the hardest to control and the quickest to burn. Delphos Herald, Apr. 17, 1911 ---------Franklin School Fire Drill A fire drill took place at the Franklin School Monday morning and the pupils of all grades, except two, were out of the building in one minute. The teachers in two of the grades did not hear the gong, and consequently were “burned to a cinder.” Delphos Herald, Apr. 17, 1911

Bearcats outlast Jefferson in backyard dual 20-18
By GREG SCHERGER The Delphos Herald DELPHOS — In a contest not decided until late in the fourth quarter, Spencerville won a hard-fought 20-18 Northwest Conference gridiron match over archrival Jefferson Friday night at Stadium Park. On their second series of the game, set up by a Spencerville interception at the 48 returned to the Jefferson 30 — advanced to the 20 on a Wildcat penalty — the Bearcats tallied first with a 7-play drive, capped off by a 3-yard TD plunge by senior running back John Smith at the 4:34 mark of the opening quarter. The 2-point attempt was unsuccessful. Following a 3-and-out possession by Jefferson, Spencerville ran off a 14-play, time-consuming drive from the 29 to the Jefferson 33, turning the ball over on downs. The Wildcats returned the favor on a 10-play, 40-yard drive, snuffed out by their second interception of the contest at 3:39 of the second quarter deep in Bearcat territory. Spencerville was forced to punt with 90 seconds left in the half; Jefferson tallied immediately on an 83-yard pass from Austin Jettinghoff to Zavier Buzard to knot the score at 6-all with a 1:11 to go; the kick failed to leave the score there. With good field position at their 40, the Bearcats responded moments later on a 2-play drive, capped off by the second TD run by Smith on the evening, this time from 18 yards out with 41 seconds on the clock. The 2-point conversion was unsuccessful, leading to the halftime score of 12-6, Bearcats. Following an exchange of possession to start the third, Jefferson put together a consistent 8-play drive from midfield with a 2-yard touchdown run by Buzard at the 4:53 mark of the quarter. Again, the extra point was unsuccessful on a kick that went wide to the left, knotting the score at 12-all. Spencerville ruled the balance of the quarter, advancing the ball to the Wildcat 31 before turning it over on downs entering the fourth quarter. A strong 11-play drive by Jefferson ended on a fumble at the Spencerville 26 with 7:51 remaining. The Bearcats then tallied what proved to be the decisive score of the game on a 6-play, 74-yard march, the final 26 yards on a scamper by sophomore Logan Vandemark at the 5:12 mark. The 2-point conversion run by Smith was good, providing Spencerville with an 8-point cushion, 20-12. Starting from their own 35, Jefferson responded in four minutes with an 11-play drive, scoring on a pass from Jettinghoff to junior Ross Thompson from 14 yards out with 1:25 remaining to close within 20-18. The crucial 2-point pass attempt for the tie was batted away by the Bearcat secondary, preserving the victory. The statistics of the contest reflected the final score, as Spencerville garnered 316 total yards with 254 on the ground, & 62 through the air on 14 1st downs. Jefferson amassed 360 total yards with 190 on the ground, 170 through the air, as quarterback Austin Jettinghoff connected on 10 of 20 passes with 2 interceptions. Zavier Buzard lead the Wildcat ground game with 27 carries for 130 yards. John Smith paced the Bearcats with 28 carries for 175 yards, Junior Colton Miller added 30 on 11 totes, and Logan Vandemark picked up 50 yards on 5 attempts. With the victory, Spencerville ends their regular season 8-2 overall, 6-2 in NWC play, Jefferson closes at 6-4 overall, and 4-4 in the league.

NWC adding to ‘Sportsmanship’ motto
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ DELPHOS — Last fall, the Northwest Conference and its then-senior and junior studentathletes and administrators met to discuss the idea of sportsmanship both on and off the field for its members and fans, coming up with the motto “1 Conference; 10 Teams; 1 Goal; Sportsmanship.” Friday morning/afternoon at the Delphos Eagles Lodge, the league — with its current senior and junior studentathletes — met to continue to implement that idea in another area: charity. Delphos man Rusty Thompson, a member of the training and development staff of the agribusiness giant Syngenta North America, spoke to the 100-plus students and administrators about “Leadership and what it means.” He spoke about perspective and offered a brief overview and understanding of some leadership basics and how each of these fundamentals can be applied in this specific circumstance. He focused on the characteristics of a leader: by example; positive and encouraging, yet also realistic; open to new ideas, able to communicate and able to adjust; having a vision and being driven and outgoing to see it through; being honest, having integrity and conscientious; self-aware and able to keep commitments; and taking the blame and sharing the glory. He quoted current Louisville men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino: “To be a great leader is to make everyone better. That’s the greatest gift of all. To elevate the people around you, to get them to maximize their potential, to get them to reach their dreams ... Ultimately, leaders are judged by the success of the people they lead.” He also used quotes from former New York Jets’ superstar quarterback Joe Namath,

Jefferson senior Quinten Wessell (32) and studentathletes from the other 9 NWC schools discuss the newest project that the conference is beginning in 2012-13: applying lessons learned on the field in the area of sportsmanship to off-the-field charity. The NWC plans to have its student-athletes figure out what charity(ies) to fund during the present academic year and beyond.

the late US General/President Dwight D. Eisenhower, former major-leaguer Jason Giambi, late football coaching legend Vince Lombardi and late US President/Senator John Quincy Adams in regards to how leaders inspire others to achieve greater than they thought possible. Jefferson High School Principal John Edinger, the host of the meeting, explained why the idea of charity was brought into the equation. “Last year, we came up with the motto of ‘1 Conference; 10 Teams; 1 Goal; Sportsmanship.’ That is in every gymnasium — a smaller version — and kids go in there and can say they were part of putting that together,” Edinger acknowledged. “This year, we wanted to talk about taking that attitude off the court/field and into charity. The kids here are meeting as groups — each table has a mix of students representing all 10 — to discuss what charity(ies) we want to support as a conference and how we want to approach it. It’s mostly going to be raising funds for now but how we do that: raffles, ticket sales, other ways; and do we want to make this something that schools rotate between themselves weekly, monthly, at the same time or what. We want to take the lessons we are trying to instill in the athletic arena and applying it to life. “We hope that the kids can make that decision — we want them to take responsibility for this, as they did last year — today and we can have this in place by basketball season. If not, I’ll take all that gets put together, e-mail it to the other schools and let them continue the discussion until we get it done.” This is hoped to be the first step, in the eyes of Edinger. “I would like to see it advance to volunteering at a soup kitchen, for example, that a school’s athletes would take a certain week or a combined group of athletes doing so. That is down the road,” he added.

Blue Jays fall to Minster in OT
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ MINSTER — St. John’s committed five turnovers and six penalties (45 yards) to zero turnovers by Minster and six penalties (49 yards) on a soggy — again — Friday night at Minster Memorial Field. The host Wildcats still needed overtime and got a touchdown pass in the extra session and a fourthdown stand to preserve a 21-14 Midwest Athletic Conference victory over the Blue Jays. The Wildcats (8-2, 6-2 MAC) and Blue Jays (6-4, 5-3 MAC) will have games next Friday in the post-season, with foes to be determined. Tied at 14-all to end regulation, Minster won the overtime coin toss — no running clock, just a play clock — and chose the ball. At the Jays’ 20, Adam Niemeyer (15-of-25 passing, 159 yards) connected with Devon Poeppelman for 11 yards, then found the same receiver on a route to the left side at the 2 and the senior took it to the pylon for the six. Poeppelman converted the kick for a 21-14 edge. The Jays took over at the Minster 20 but did not have junior tailback Tyler Jettinghoff (27 totes, 155 yards). They garnered a first down in four plays but on 4th-and-goal at the 5, Mark Boggs misfired on a pass into the end zone. “Tyler had had his helmet ripped off before then and got hit in the nose. We kept him out as a precaution,” Jays coach Todd Schulte explained. However, he was frustrated with his team on this night, especially the turnovers. “I told the team after the game that we have to value the football. We did not,” he added. “We told them the same thing before the game: it would come down to us forcing turnovers and hanging onto the football and we did the exact opposite. We moved the football well all night but shot ourselves in the foot.” Turnovers marred the Blue Jay effort from the start; they moved from the 36 (after Andrew Metzger’s 26-yard kickoff return to open the night) to the Minster 30 but a fumble recovered by Ethan Wolf ended the threat there. A trade of punts left the Wildcats starting at the 21. Niemeyer completed 3-of-4 passes (73 yards) to help them overcome a pair of penalties (15 yards) and move the distance in six plays. At the Blue Jay 13, Korey Schultz (11 rushes, 127 yards) swept the left side and found the seam. Poeppelman (6 catches, 59 yards) added the kick for a 7-0 edge with 1:21 showing in the opener. The Jays garnered a first down but a penalty stopped them this time, forcing a punt. After forcing a 3-and-out, the Jays gave the ball back as Boggs (7-of-12 passing, 177 yards) completed a 59-yarder to Jared Knebel but the senior receiver was stripped from behind and Scott Sekas recovered at the Minster 10. After forcing another 3-andout, the Jays got on the board on the first play from the 45. Boggs dropped and threw a deep route down the right sideline to Will Buettner; the senior caught the ball on the numbers at the Wildcat 30 and outran the defense to the pylon. Metzger’s point-after was good for a 7-all tie with 6:13 showing in the half. The Wildcats then began a drive (set up by a 21-yard kickoff return by Schultz) at the 29 and — aided by a facemask call that helped preserve the drive — reached the Jays’ five in 14 plays. However, a delay penalty and later a holding call stymied the drive. On play 18, Poeppelman’s 31-yard field goal attempt was wide left with 16.9 ticks showing, effectively ending the half. After the Jays held on a 3-andout to start the second half, a holding penalty on their drive and an interception by Schultz put Minster in business at their 38. However, a fumble — one of the few times the hosts put the ball on the wet sod — sent them back right away and they had to punt. After Boggs ran for 24 yards (11 rushes, 48 yards) to the Wildcats’ 43, Troy Kauffman made a 1-handed grab on a deep ball to end another promising Blue Jay drive at the 17. Minster garnered a first down before being forced to punt. On the punt came a bizarre play; the Jays’ return man fumbled the ball, with the Wildcats recovering at the Blue and Gold 35; however, Schulte explained that one of the referees blew the play dead sometime before that and the punt was done over. The Jays then embarked on a 9-play drive — aided by a Minster personal foul — from the 33 that eventually reached the Minster 9 but ended up with a 31-yard field goal try by Metzger; however, it was blocked and Minster recovered at the 17. An incompletion later, Schultz took a handoff just off right tackle and broke through the line of scrimmage; he veered toward the sideline and turned on the jets to finish off an 83-yard run in the end zone. Poeppelman made it 14-7 with 9:59 remaining. A fumble on the ensuing kickoff was recovered by Minster at the Jays’ 34. However, the defense held on a 4th-and-1 from the 25. St. John’s then drove 75 yards in 11 plays — with six rushes by Jettinghoff (37 yards) and completions to Luke MacLennan (26 yards) and Metzger (16) leading the way. At the Minster 3,

Delphos Optimist Punt, Pass & Kick contest, results

Saturday, October 27, 2012

The Herald — 7

Pigskin (Continued from Page 6)
has rebounded from a slow start and seems to be getting it together. However, Buckeyes have found ways to win every game, even when not playing well. Miller injury may end up being a blessing in disguise with teams now forced to prepare for Kenny Guiton. Buckeyes get a close, lowscoring win in (so-so) Happy Valley. OHIO: Bobcats are ranked. Though this game is in Oxford, I like them to stay there. NFL: NEW YORK GIANTS: Every time I have to depend on Tony Romo in one of my fantasy leagues, he stinks it up. I don’t have to do so this week but I don’t see him having the same kind of success versus G-Men as he did on opening night. With no running game to speak of, Romo gets beaten up and New York’s Manning (Eli) has a field day versus Cowboys’ “D”. KANSAS CITY: Raiders coming off win over Jags, while Chiefs coming off bye. My guess is there was some soul-searching in KC over the break and the fans will be at their full-throated best with hated/despised/ loathed Raaaiders coming into town. NEW ORLEANS: Are Saints making a legit comeback to earn the playoffs? Broncos are coming off the bye but the defense still has problems; not good against the high-powered Saints attack and Saints’ “D” starting to get all the pieces back. Brees outduels Peyton in Mile High City. ARIZONA: San Francisco defense is as good as advertised. The offense — eh! Arizona defense is — gasp! — awfully good, too. The offense — can they keep anyone healthy? Cardinals get desert win — maybe 6-3. PHILADELPHIA: Eagles coming off the bye

The Delphos Optimists held their annual Punt, Pass and Kick competition at Stadium Park Oct. 13, where 46 youth participated. Winners of the 8-year-old division (upper left) are, left to right, Cody Bailey, 3rd (118-2); Mikel Hale, 2nd (120-4); and Landen Grothaus, 1st (121). Winners in the 9-year-old division (upper middle) are, Avery Schulte, left, 3rd (153-7); Logan Jones, 2nd (182-6); and Colin Bailey, 1st (205-5). Topping the 10-year-old division are (above) left to right. Joey Jacomet, 3rd (173-7); Chase Martin, 2nd (1808); and Jason Gillespie, 1st (180-8). Victorious in the 11-year-old division (far left) are, from left, Mark Wrasman, 3rd (219-7); Hunter Haehn, 2nd (2271); and Brady Welker, 1st (242-10). Winners in the 12-year-old division are, left to right. Gust Pimpas, 3rd (188-6); Curtis Schwinnen, 2nd (212-2); and Collin Will, 1st (226-9).

and a lot of figuring things out. Michael Vick is under the gun, period; no more excuses. Falcons — also coming off the bye — will be rudely treated at Lincoln Financial Field. TENNESSEE: Colts come off big win at home. Road results not quite as good for this young and rebuilding team. Chris Johnson starting to get it cranked up for Tuxedos and he leads the way. DAVE BONINSEGNA College: It’s the “Cocktail Party” in Jacksonville. The Gators can clinch a spot in the conference title game with a victory against rival Georgia. The Bulldogs, meanwhile, need to beat Florida and probably win remaining games against Mississippi and Auburn to get to Atlanta after a stingy loss to South Carolina two weeks ago. Florida crushed the Gamecocks last week; I don’t think it will be a crushing blow but look for the Gators to take a bit out of the ‘Dogs. Kansas State: K-State may well have the best offense in the country: both quarterbacks looking to boost their Heisman Trophy resumes, with West Virginia’s Geno Smith falling off the map recently. The Wildcats square off against the No. 15 Red Raiders in a Big 12 showdown Saturday in Manhattan. What was expected to be a highlycompetitive game instead turned into a one-sided affair last Saturday as Kansas State cruised to a 55-14 road win over then-No. 17 West Virginia. The ’Cats have the Red Raiders this week; maybe not a cruise but a win nonetheless. Oklahoma: This week we will find out if the Irish are for real; Notre Dame hasn’t been unbeaten this late in a season in more than a decade. Now Oklahoma already has a loss but the Sooners’ recent dominance

has them thinking they’re also in the running. Because they are at home and coming off a dominating with over Texas two weeks ago, I like the Sooners to take this one. Michigan: Michigan has been on a roll since a 41-14 loss to Alabama and a 31-25 win over Air Force; the Wolverines have given up fewer than 10 points a game and just 23 points combined in three conference matchups. Nebraska is a bit banged up and that will take a toll this week in Lincoln as the team from up north gets the win. Ohio State: Last week, the Buckeyes — one — dodged a big bullet but more importantly showed they can overcome adversity. They are going to use that momentum for a big not-so-close win over Penn State. Ohio: A good old MAC matchup with Thom Brenneman’s Ohio Bobcats going up against the Redhawks/Redskins (back in the day). Ohio’s unbeaten record has helped it become recognized nationally; the

Bobcats are off to their best start in 44 years. They seek their seventh straight victory over Mid-American Conference rival Miami (Ohio). They get this one with ease. NFL: New York Giants at Dallas: The Cowboys already have beaten the Giants once this season and the Giants are well aware of Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones’ boast that his Cowboys will beat the Giants in Dallas and are looking for revenge. The Giants are going for their fourth straight win; it is hard to beat a team twice in one season. I am taking the G-Men to get the win. Oakland: Both these teams are horrible; the Chiefs are in worse shape as they have Brady Quinn starting under centre. This game is going to be so ugly, I am just going to go with the Raiders for no particular reason. Denver: The last time Peyton Manning and Drew Brees met -- in Super Bowl XLIV -- the game ended with Brees and the New Orleans Saints raising the

Lombardi Trophy. But things have changed for both; Manning was a Colt and both teams are struggling so far this season. The only thing they have in common is that both are trying to right the ship. I think that both are headed in the right direction but I am going to take the Broncos to get a little bit that a word??? (Editor’s Note: If we want it to be!!) San Francisco: The 49ers are establishing themselves as one of the best teams in the NFL, although the Cardinals are just a game back in the division. The Niners have rebounded after suffering a 26-3 defeat to the New York Giants in Week 6 and got back on track last Thursday with a 13-6 win over Seattle. I am going to take San Fran to get the win.

Atlanta: The Atlanta Falcons also hoped to shore up a few issues during their off-wee, but as the league’s only unbeaten team, while the struggling Eagles try to get their season back on track Sunday but it likely won’t be easy as they host the Falcons. However, Eagles coach Andy Reid is 13-0 in his career coming off a bye week. The Eagles have a new defensive coordinator but I don’t think that is going to matter as the Falcons win the battle of the birds. Tennessee: Both teams are coming off of wins last week. The Titans have won two in a row, while the Colts have been less than consistent, not winning two straight all season. The Titans are a bit more healthy and should get the W at home on Sunday.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2012 Although persons you’ve helped in the past might try to even accounts in the year ahead, many of your biggest opportunities are likely to come through individuals whom you’ve never aided. Make the most of the doors that open for you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Just because you have the ability to focus your mental and physical forces on an important objective, don’t expect others to do so. They might find it to be far too overwhelming a task. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Familiar faces and customary routines might bore you to tears. If this is the case, look for new playgrounds and playmates. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you’re feeling high- strung, don’t take it out on innocent family members or co-workers. They’re not responsible for your emotional surges and outages. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your mental faculties are your most promising asset, making it possible for you to do exceptionally well in all situations that emphasize communication and unique ideas. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Take note that your chart emphases your material interests to be the most promising arrow in your quiver, making it possible for you to have many successful transactions of this nature. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Your natural boldness and determination always make you a force to be reckoned with. Your drive to finish a vital project will once again prove this to be true. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Because you’ll roll up your sleeves and get dirty while others will be all talk and no work, you’ll be the one who reaps the rewards. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Another chance encounter will bring you into contact with someone whom you recently met and liked. This time, both of you will make sure you’ll get to know each other far better. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Even though you’ll welcome knowing that some assistance is available to you, you’ll fare far better by operating as independently as possible. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Because you’re not apt to be bashful about expressing your strong opinions, others won’t be left guessing as to where you stand on critical issues, making everyone’s life easier. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It behooves you not to be dependent upon anybody else’s financial assistance. Even those who are extremely generous are likely to attach some strings to any arrangement. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Guard against inclinations to unwittingly dominate companions. Even though you may not mean to do so, you could be far more assertive than you intend. MONDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2012 There is a good chance that in the year ahead you will develop a mutually beneficial alliance with someone who initially rubs you the wrong way. Once you get past this abrasive stage, a genuine friendship will blossom. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Be extremely tactful with all your oneon-one relationships, especially those that feature a comfortable rapport. You could unintentionally say something way out of line. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Some big responsibilities or critical tasks you’ve been successfully sweeping under the rug could come up for air. Once they’re out, they could get nasty. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Someone you know only casually could make a play for your friends. Sharing friendships is one thing, but crossing you out of the picture is another. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You have exceptional leadership qualities, but don’t become too selfserving. Victory will be far more gratifying if you include everyone involved. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You naturally wouldn’t like it if someone put you in a position to have to defend everything you say. Bear this in mind should a friend make a statement that you disagree with. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Although you’re in a favorable cycle for joint endeavors, there could be a few conditions attached. Any colleague you have must be able to offer as much as you can. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -When it comes to a matter of mutual concern in which you and another are diametrically opposed, a compromise is required. Be the first to propose a solution that both parties can accept. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A weightier problem than you originally anticipated may fall to you. If someone for whom you’re responsible fails to take care of something, it’ll be left to you to do the job. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Even though you’re likely to be a welcome addition to a social gathering, don’t be the last to leave. Head for the door before your host or hostess starts to yawn. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You’ll have to be methodical, bold and organized if you hope to achieve any kind of important objective. If you don’t endow yourself with these qualities, it isn’t likely you’ll succeed. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Avoid the company of friends or associates who have a tendency to impose their views on others. Your tolerance for self-appointed know-it-alls is slightly above zero. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Take extra pains to manage your resources as prudently as possible. Later, when it becomes time to pay off these obligations, they could hinder you at just the wrong moment.

Kissick is adamant about a yearly tracking of property values and basing decisions of selling properties on that metric. He also sees casino revenues as an inconsistent monetary source and would seek funding property repairs with sales tax revenues. Each of the candidate’s backgrounds differ in a unique way. Noonan grew up near Delphos on a family farm where discussions at the kitchen table often focused on issues affecting small business rather than politics. Since moving back to the area five years ago, Noonan has been active in advancing fiscally-conservative values as a volunteer. Noonan’s political resume includes working as legislative aide at the Ohio House and the director at the Ohio Department of Agriculture. He currently serves as Congressman Jim Jordan’s deputy district director in Lima. In addition, he was appointed to the Allen County Port Authority. He has fought against the sales tax increase proposal, experienced the dynamics between the commissioners and officials at the courthouse and worked with elected officials at the county, township, municipal, state and federal levels.

Miller was raised in Bluffton and acquired an associate of art degree in business from The Ohio State University at Lima in 1989 and a bachelor of art degree in business and accounting from Bluffton University in 1990. Miller maintains an extensive track record of community involvement and comprehensive business background. She has owned and been president of Connie Miller Insurance, Inc., since 2000. She was also a candidate for the Ohio House of Representatives for District 4 in 2010. Kissick is a Royal Oak, Mich., native and moved to the Lima region several years ago. He attended Ferris State University and received a diploma in technical communication. In 2010, Kissick was a candidate for the United States House of Representatives in District 4. His professional experience includes trainer for the Young Men’s Christian Association, engine production associate at Honda of America Manufacturing, writer/editor at Lake County Star, fire controlman 2nd class, United States Navy, editor at Satellite Newspaper and staff writer with Big Rapids Daily Newspaper Pioneer Publishing Group. Jay Begg is running unopposed for a second open seat.

US prepares for superstorm
DUCK, N.C. (AP) — A year after being walloped by Hurricane Irene, residents rushed to put away boats, harvest crops and sandbag boardwalks Friday as the Eastern Seaboard braced for a rare megastorm that experts said would cause much greater havoc. Hurricane Sandy, moving north from the Caribbean, was expected to make landfall Monday night near the Delaware coast, then hit two winter weather systems as it moves inland, creating a hybrid monster storm that could bring nearly a foot of rain, high winds and up to 2 feet of snow. Experts said the storm would be wider and stronger than last year’s Irene, which caused more than $15 billion in damage, and could rival the worst East Coast storm on record. Officials did not mince words, telling people to be prepared for several days without electricity. Jersey Shore beach towns began issuing voluntary evacuations and protecting boardwalks. Atlantic City casinos made contingency plans to close, and officials advised residents of flood-prone areas to stay with family or be ready to leave. Airlines said to expect cancellations and waived change fees for passengers who want to reschedule. Many storm-seasoned residents had not begun to panic. Farther north, residents were making more cautious preparations. At a Home Depot in Freeport, on Long Island in New York, Bob Notheis bought sawhorses to put his furniture on inside his home. “I’m just worried about how bad it’s going to be with the tidal surge,” he said. “Irene was kind of rough on me and I’m just trying to prepare.” The storm threatened to hit two weeks before Election Day, while several states were heavily involved in campaigning, canvassing and get-out-the-

to succeed and keep their trust. I have definitely learned that you get out of this what you put in.” Hamp has also been looking to what he’s going to do after he gets his diploma. “I am looking at continuing my education, perhaps taking college courses online as well,” he said. Edinger is pleased to keep students in the district. “We were watching some of our kids leave because they aren’t traditional students,” he said. “They were enrolling in online offerings like the Ohio Distance and Electronic Learning Academy (OHDELA), Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow (ECOT) and the West Central Learning Academy (WCLA). Some even told us if we weren’t going to offer virtual, they would leave. It’s like bringing our kids into the world and then someone else finishes raising them. Now we can keep those kids in the district and fulfill our obligation to help them get a Jefferson diploma.” Sommers is learning along with his students. “This is new to all of us,” Sommers said. “The biggest problem we’ve had is computer glitches because we didn’t know exactly what we needed. TRECA has been right there with

us helping us work those out. I have been really impressed. We can meet almost any type of situation and find a way to make it work.” Students can also use an online program called Illuminate to talk to their teachers if they need additional help. Teachers can use remote assistance to connect with a student’s computer and assist with the learning process. The DDA isn’t just for those seeking something other than a classroom setting. Due to recent budget cuts, many elective and advanced courses have been cut at the high school. Students who would like to earn an honors diploma can take the extra required courses through the academy during a study hall. Students in the DDA can also participate in school activities and extra-curriculars. The DDA is operating in the black, bringing more than $80,000 to the district that would have gone to other schools or digital academies through the open enrollment of students. While that is a nice bonus, Edinger said, it’s not always about the money. “It’s about the kids. We owe them every opportunity to be successful and prepared for what they will do after their high school career,” he said. “That’s why we’re here. I think we’ll eventually see a blended system with classroom and online courses offered at all schools. We’ll be a little ahead on that curve.”

vote efforts. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and Vice President Joe Biden both canceled weekend campaign events in coastal Virginia Beach, Va., though their events in other parts of the states were going on as planned. In Rhode Island, politicians asked supporters to take down yard signs for fear they might turn into projectiles in the storm. Sandy has killed at least 40 people in the Caribbean, and just left the Bahamas. Residents from Florida to North Carolina will experience peripheral impacts of the hurricane through the weekend. As it turns back to the north and northwest and merges with colder air from a winter system, West Virginia and further west into eastern Ohio and southern Pennsylvania are expected to get snow. Up to 2 feet of snow should fall on West Virginia, with lighter snow in parts of Ohio and Pennsylvania.
