DELPHOS — When Vancrest Healthcare Center residents and their family members sat down for Thanksgiving dinner Thursday night, they shared a common bond which was much more than a fine-tuned feast with all the fixings. The “icing on the cake” was the obvious joy, pride and overall magic the celebration brought to the residents who may only see certain family members during the holiday season. Vancrest Director Cindy Langenkamp feels a strong compassion for the residents and families and knows the holiday season is a very busy time. By hosting the dinner early, more family members who live out of town are able to see their loved ones living in the facility. “We love the time we have with them [residents] and feel blessed to be part of their lives. Some residents are too ill or it has become too difficult for them to travel,” Lagenkamp said. “So we bring the holiday to them.” Director of Assisted Living Rene Mueller has been very instrumental in the planning and execution of the annual event, which has become quite a tradition over the past five years. Mueller describes the event as a celebration of family and the connection they share. “I’ve seen families extend themselves to residents that did not have relatives visiting that night. They envelop the resident with compassion, warmth and love,” Mueller spoke passionately. “All the preparation is worth every smile, every hug — we leave feeling proud of our accomplishment, feeling full and knowing we helped touch lives.” Each resident invites 2-3 family members to join them in celebration of the traditional harvest festival and religious observances. Organizing a plan of this magnitude is no small feat. Maria Diltz, from Medical Records, and Director of

— Cindy Lagenkamp, Vancrest direcctor Nursing Mindy Moreland order enough invitations, tables, table clothes and silverware to accommodate 400 people months in advance. Schematics are drawn configuring the placement of furniture, serving tables, staff, volunteers and residents ensuring the safety of everyone involved. “It’s kind of like planning a wedding,” Diltz made the comparison. “I just do what I have do to make them [residents and family] happy.” Langenkamp described the planning of the event as a welltuned machine. Preparations for the dinner include setting up each of the seven common areas to accommodate residents and family. St. John’s High School and Rhodes College students volunteered their time to help prepare for and serve dinner. Eighty staff members were also on duty to help with the holiday dinner. Dietary Manager Monica French and her staff began baking turkeys early in the morning. “We’ve prepared enough food to feed 400 people, including two Tom turkeys, 36 pounds of cranberry salad, 50 pounds of dressing, 384 slices of pumpkin pie, 30 gallons of punch and 33 dozen dinner rolls,” French detailed the menu.

Farewell Apple Fruit Pies
Two lonely little Hostess Apple Fruit Pies fill D3 in the snack machine on the second floor of The Herald building. On Friday, Hostess announced it would close after decades of providing beloved snacks to young and old alike. No more Twinkies, CupCakes, Ding Dongs, Ho-Hos, Struessel Cakes, Suzy Qs, Fruit Pies, Donettes, Zingers or Coffee Cakes. No more soft, moist cake with cream filling of perfect consistency. No more smooth, melty fudge over chocolate cake. No more Coffee Cake loaded with brown sugar and cinnamon. No more fruit pies with sweet, juicy bits of apple in a smooth filling. No more CupCakes with the 8 perfect loops on the top. How did this happen? How could something that has been a part of my life forever just go away? Well, maybe not gone entirely. Rumor has it some other company may pick up a few of Hostess’ offering. Hostess is blaming the company’s demise on unreasonable union workers. The workers say Hostess had already filed for bankruptcy and they had given some concessions and the money from those was to be plowed back into the company. Workers say it never happened. Top management was given 80-percent raises while the company was still in bankruptcy. Blah, blah, blah. Let’s not quibble here. There’s too much at stake. I craved the Apple Fruit Pies when I was pregnant for Cameron. I had to have one every day. I mean I HAD TO HAVE ONE! As a child, nothing was more delightful than seeing that box come out of the grocery bag. Now they’re gone, gone, gone. Sob. Sob. The Hostess CupCake was first sold on May 11, 1919. The poor CupCake won’t even see its 100th birthday. It’s a crime, truly.

On the Other hand
According to, “Twinkies were introduced in 1933 by The Continental Baking Company in Indianapolis, which also made ‘Wonder Bread’ and had a snack line you’re probably familiar with called Hostess. Baker James A. Dewar got the idea for the ‘Twinkie’ while he delivered one of their products, a creamfilled strawberry shortcake. The machines to make these sat idle when the strawberry season was over so he came up with an idea to use them to make a snack cake filled with a banana filling and only charge a nickel for a package of two. It was good idea as money was tight for people during the Great Depression. Just like the song went “Yes We Have No Banana’s“ during World War II because bananas were rationed, Hostess had to come up with a different filling.” They switched to vanilla creme and it was popular so they never changed back. Other snacks followed to fill out the variety we know now. And the rest, as they say, is history. Hey, does anyone have a Hostess Apple Fruit Pie they are willing part with? I feel the need coming on. Oh, yeah. I’ll just go get those two in the vending machine. I’ll eat one and maybe I can get a taker on eBay for the other. You never know. There just might be someone out there who likes them more than I do — but I doubt it. :(

Hospice becomes home for Bohlein


CHP Hospice volunteer Sharon Gipe of Van Wert, right, visits with Agnes Bohnlein of Delphos, a patient at the Van Wert Inpatient Hospice Center. Bohnlein was a resident at the hospice center for four months before passing this month. Information submitted VAN WERT — Many people think of hospice as the last resort in the waning moments of life. That certainly wasn’t true for Agnes Bohnlein of Delphos, a patient at CHP’s Van Wert Inpatient Hospice Center. At age 91 and facing terminal cancer, she never missed her weekly bingo game on Wednesday night at St. Johns; something she had enjoyed for years. Family, friends or volunteers took her to the game every week. She loved bingo and would not only play each week, but worked helping distribute cards to other players too. While at the hospice center, she participated in CHP’s basket bingo event--and even won a basket. November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, a time to draw attention and raise awareness of this kind of care. One of the messages hospice organizations hope to convey is that hospice is not only for the final moments of life. “Hospice is most effective when we have months and not days to support patients and families,” said Angie Krall, RN inpatient hospice supervisor. “There are many supportive services that we can provide to make this journey easier for the patient and family…if we have the time to implement them.” For four months, Bohnlein fondly called the hospice center her home. “Everyone here is so special, they love what they do,” she said. “It’s like family.”

Gov: Ohio won’t set up state health care exchange
By ANN SANNER The Associated Press COLUMBUS — Ohio won’t set up its own health insurance exchange but is instead opting for a partnership with the federal government to run the new online market under President Barack Obama’s health care law. Republican Gov. John Kasich wrote in a letter Friday to the Obama administration that setting up a state-based exchange is too costly and states have little control over how to operate exchanges. “Regardless of who runs an exchange, the end product is the same,” he said. Kasich’s administration has indicated for months that Ohio was leaning toward a federally facilitated exchange. State officials have noted their continued misgivings about the health care law, including what they say has been a lack of information from the federal government. Ohio had been among the 26 states that had challenged the law, which the U.S. Supreme Court upheld this summer. And the state’s voters overwhelming snubbed the overhaul’s mandated coverage in a largely symbolic referendum last year. Kasich was adamant in his letter that Ohio would continue to regulate its health insurance market, oversee health plans and make decisions around Medicaid eligibility. He said the Ohio Department of Insurance would retain its oversight over the insurance industry, “as it has done very effectively for more than 60 years.” The administration said it would submit additional details on its plan to federal officials by mid-February. Exchanges are online markets in which individual consumers and small businesses will shop for health insurance among competing private plans. They’ll be open for business on Jan. 1, 2014, but open enrollment for exchange plans will begin even sooner, on Oct. 1, 2013. The exchanges are supposed to demystify the process of buying health insurance, allowing consumers to make apples-to-apples comparisons. Consumers will also be able to find out whether they’re eligible for new federal subsidies to help pay premiums or whether they qualify for expanded Medicaid. A group of consumer advocates said it supported Kasich’s move to ensure that the state continues to regulate the insurance market and make Medicaid determinations. But Cathy Levine, who co-chairs Ohio Consumers for Health Coverage, said the coalition was disappointed Kasich didn’t take advantage of certain aspects of the law, such as the federal grant money available to help consumers navigate the new market. The state asserts that it already has a consumer services division in its insurance department to answer questions and address Ohioans’ problems. Levine said she also agreed with Kasich that many Ohioans wouldn’t see a substantial difference between a state-run or federally run exchange. “I think consumers are probably better off at this point if the feds run the exchange,” Levine said. “We don’t know how Ohio would operate the state exchange.” Democratic state lawmak-

CHP volunteers, like Sharon Gipe of Van Wert stopped in often to visit with Bohnlein and when the weather permitted, they would go outside for walks around the building. “In hospice, I can still live my own life,” Bohnlein said. “They give you the opportunity to do what you can. Now, that’s my idea of living!” Bohnlein passed on Nov. 13. Besides being a patient, she became an advocate for hospice; telling friends about how she benefitted from the service. She is featured in CHP’s latest television commercial. “People don’t realize what a wonderful place [the inpatient hospice center] is,” Bohnlein said. “This is where I wanted to be at the end of my life and it has lived up to my expectations.”

The Museum of Postal History and I lost a good friend during the last week. Having served his country proudly in the US Navy, it was only fitting that he be buried on Monday – the National Holiday for Veterans. There wasn’t a dry eye when the military honors and the playing of Taps concluded. We’ll miss you, Jimmy Wilcox. You were right, cooks do rule the world and everyone who ever enjoyed hors d’oeuvres or a meal at this museum had you to thank for it. Following the funeral, I was asked about the delivery of mail during World War II. The person wanted to know if there was five day or six day delivery during the war. I am still researching the answer so I must beg off and talk about something related. In an article that was written in the Army and Navy Journal of December 7 1942, then Postmaster General Frank C. Walker stated very clearly the importance of the mail in the war effort. “It is almost impossible to over-stress the importance of this mail. It is so essential to morale that army and navy officers of the highest rank list mail almost on a level with munitions and food.” I remember waiting for letters from my father during my time in the military. Dad was the creative writer in the family so I never knew what to expect. He was an amateur cartoonist and sometimes the outside of the envelope was more interesting than its contents; although I did enjoy Russell Baker’s column from the NY Times. But I digress. The real story today is about a group of unsung heroes from World War II. An article about

these heroes was first published in the January/February 2012 issue of The American Postal Worker Magazine. The article was about the 6888th Central Postal Battalion of the Women’s Army Corps. Women had served as civilian aids during every war fought by Americans prior to World War II. Because of the shortage of manpower, Congress made an unprecedented move by allowing the Army, Navy and Coast Guards to recruit and enlist women in military roles other than as nurses (3 cent issued Sept 11, 1952). One more interesting fact about this group of WACs is that they were a battalion of officers and enlisted personnel who were African-American. Segregation was permitted in the military and many even questioned the right of these women to serve their country but through the efforts of Eleanor Roosevelt (5 cent issued October 11, 1963) and Mary McCleod Bethune (22 cent issued March 5, 1985) these women were asked to serve. After the rapid deployment across Europe following the invasion of Normandy, the delivery system was overloaded with undeliverable mail. Some of the mail was over a year old and just sat in airplane hangars in Great Britain. It was estimated that over 7 million letters had not reached their destination and this, according to the military leaders, was having a significant effect on morale. After two grueling and treacherous weeks at sea, the 855 members of the 6888th Battalion arrived overseas to tackle this monumental task. “Some people didn’t

understand about addressing letters, so they would just write a letter to their son or husband addressed ‘To Junior, U.S. Army,’ or ‘To Sam, Army,’” noted Mary Crawford Ragland. “It was our job to figure out who those soldiers were and get them their mail.” They were given six months to complete the task even as troops continued to move at a rapid pace and the task became more challenging. By working around the clock with three shifts, seven days a week, the job was completed in just three months. They were able to clear 65,000 pieces of mail during each work session. Following completion of this assignment, the battalion was deployed to Paris to ensure that the mail continued to find its home with the front lines of our troops. As one of these soldiers noted, “When we came back, though, there were no parades, there were no speeches, [and] there was no recognition. They gave us our papers discharging us and sent us on our way.” Sixty-four years after the completion of World War II in a ceremony at Arlington Cemetery, the 6888th Postal Battalion was recognized for their service just as the Tuskegee Airmen and the Buffalo Soldiers had been recognized previously. These soldiers should stand proudly for serving a grateful nation. The Marriott Courtyard Hotel in Chicago has extended the time available for us to use our room block for another week. Trip is Nov.30, Dec, 1 and 2. Call me as soon as possible if you are interested at 419-303-5482.

ers unsuccessfully pushed bills in the GOP-controlled Ohio Legislature to try to set up a state-run exchange. “It just seems to make sense that one would want something that’s more localized and more tailored for the people of the state,” State Rep. Nickie Antonio, D-Lakewood, one of the bill’s sponsors.

The Auburn factory sent out the serial numbers of some stolen vehicles to Pennell’s, Van Wert dealership. A few days later, two men came to Pennell’s dealership with a car that matched the description of one of the vehicles. The car had a defective starter and Pennell knew it was to be repaired under warranty. “As soon as the men left, Pennell rolled back the floor mat to check the serial number on the body. At that time he noticed there was clearly burnt into the wooden floor boards, ‘Property of Al Capone.’ Then he called the factory to report what he found with the serial numbers matching the telegram. Later the factory telegraphed back notifying him not to worry about it and fix the car under warranty.” When the men returned for the car, Pennell told them the repairs had been made under warranty and no reimbursement was needed. The men gave Pennell $20 and left. During the time he operated the dealership, Pennell would make frequent trips to the Auburn Automobile Co. He tried to make his trips around lunchtime so that he could lunch with the company executives — perhaps E.L. Cord — at Tom Proctor’s restaurant (now Auburn Marine and Tackle). Pennell would find out information about cars that were being developed and techniques used in manufacturing the cars. Pennell would visit Auburn at the end of the model year and purchase excess bodies, parts and materials that were left over. Then he would buy wrecked vehicles and assemble various cars in his shop. Over the years, Pennell created some non-standard vehicles. Pennell’s dealership provided the Auburn Limousines used by the GreenvilleDayton Transportation Co. for an east-west passenger route between Lima, Delphos, Van Wert and Ft. Wayne. The service also carried mail and small packages. The bus service was owned by brothers Lasko and Kelton Mitchell. It replaced the InterUrban line that went defunct in 1932 and the schedule was identical to the former Interurban timetable. Pennell worked as superintendent of maintenance for the service from February 1933 to March 1934. The service’s chief mechanic was Jigger Johnson, who won the Indianapolis 500 in 1931 and 1937 as a riding mechanic. The service ran with Auburn until 1936, when it was replaced with buses. In 1934, Pennell established the Lima-DefianceBryan Bus line using Auburn and Cord automobiles. The service again paralleled the

route of the Inter-Urban line. Pennell later changed the name of the service to the Ohio Northern Coach Line, which originated in Van Wert and traveled to Jackson, Mich. The service paralleled the Cincinnati Northern Railroad Lines that had petitioned the Public Utilities Commission to stop service. The Ohio Northern line used Auburns and front-wheeldrive Cords. Kirchenbauer has a photograph that appears to show a L-29 Cord chassis with an Auburn body. A similar eight door stretch limousine with a Cord chassis and Auburn body was found in Michigan.

Co., of Delphos, Ohio, paid our town a visit of inspection. He bought part of the Robertson lands on which he and other parties interested with him hold an option. Mr. Leilich expressed himself well pleased with our town and shipping facilities and there may be a chance that he might be wanting to put a branch of their large factory here. Here is hoping that he may decide in our favor. Stark County Republican, Knox, Ind. When interviewed relative to the above clipping, manager H.L. Leilich, stated that it was true; that he and others had bought 30 acres of land at Knox, Ind., 60 miles from Chicago, where the galvanizing department of the Delphos plant will be located, and a part of the can making machinery will also be moved. This will decrease the number of the working force here, now at 322. A union will be made with an eastern graniteware, tinware, tub and pail manufactory, which will also be located at Knox, and Chicago will be made the central shipping point for sheet metal and finished products. Manager Leilich stated that while the addition to the galvanized department, now under construction, will be used for another purpose than that originally intended. The office building will be erected, for which a contract has been given. He stated that there were three reasons for the establishment of a branch plant at Knox, instead of maintaining the

Obama to Hill: People want action, cooperation
By ANDREW TAYLOR The Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama urged the leaders of Washington’s divided government on Friday to join him in “tough compromises” to keep the economy from plummeting and taxes from rising for millions of Americans in the new year. “I think we’re all aware that we have some urgent business to do,” Obama said at the White House with the nation’s top Republican, House Speaker John Boehner, at his side. Sitting to the president’s other side was the Senate’s leader, Democrat Harry Reid, as negotiations over the “fiscal cliff” began in earnest. Without a deal between Obama and Congress, a series of tax increases and spending cuts will kick in on Jan.1, with potential to throw the nation into recession. All sides have a deep political stake in coming to terms, but Obama and Republicans in Congress are at a stalemate on raising taxes on incomes over $250,000. On his turf, Obama made the only statement before reporters were asked to leave the Roosevelt Room. Obama used the moment before the TV cameras to try to set a tone of compromise, right down to the body language. Obama ribbed Boehner about his birthday on today, saying he would not embarrass the speaker with a cake because he was not sure how many candles would be needed. “Yeah, right,” a smiling Boehner said as the two literally poked some fun at each other and then shook hands. Across the table sat the Senate’s top Republican, Mitch McConnell, who has set a harsher tone toward Obama in the fallout of last week’s election. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Vice President Joe Biden, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and a few top White House advisers also took part. Obama said the goal was to prevent a tax hike for middleclass families, create jobs and keep the economy growing. “That’s an agenda that Democrats and Republicans and independents, people all across the country share,” Obama said. “So our challenge is to make sure that we are able to cooperate together, work together, find some common ground, make some tough compromises, build some consensus to do the people’s business.” He added: “My hope is that this is going to be the beginning of a fruitful process.” In news conferences and other public statements, Obama and the congressional leaders have been setting negotiating markers for a debt deal. The session at the White House was their first meeting together since the election, one in which Obama says the American people voted for his way to cut the debt. Obama has insisted that any deal involve higher taxes on the top 2 percent of income earners. Republicans leaders are vowing to resist rate hikes as job-killers, though they’ve signaled they’re open to added revenue through curbs on deductions and credits. On Friday afternoon, Obama will continue his efforts to build a coalition of support for his position when he and Biden meet with leaders of civil rights and other organizations. Obama has already met with leaders of labor and liberal organizations as well as corporate CEOs who have backed his call for greater tax revenue. At issue is a one-two punch of expiring Bush-era tax reductions and across-theboard spending cuts set to hit in January as self-imposed punishment for the failure of a gridlocked Congress to reach a deficit-cutting deal last year. Economists and business leaders warn the combination could send the economy back into recession. The White House says Obama’s starting point for negotiations is his February budget plan, which combined $1.6 trillion in new revenues over the coming decade — chiefly from upper-income

entire plant here, and bringing the graniteware manufactory to Delphos, which would mean that the force of employes would be doubled. The company is unable to procure more land near their present plant, which will be absolutely necessary if the entire plant was retained here. Inability to get a switch from the Northern Ohio track to the factory grounds is another reason, and the third is the large saving that will accrue to the company by making Chicago a central shipping point. This state of affairs is to be deplored. This magnificent institution, so valuable to Delphos as a means of affording employment, is of more real benefit to this town than many people realize, and that further building, beyond now, is a severe blow. Delphos Herald, Mar. 30, 1909 ---------Worked on German Guns Erwin Scherger and Wm. Hanker returned to Delphos Sunday morning after more than a year in the service. They were in the Ordinance Department and were together most of the time. They worked in the repair shops where the large guns were brought for overhauling and helped on repairs on the guns which the Germans turned over after the armistice and were sent to this country after being repaired. They came to the United States on the U.S.S. Malory landing on July 19. Delphos Herald, July 28,1919 ---------Lincoln Way Dairy to Move to New Location The Lincoln Highway Dairy company will move to the new location, which has been prepared for the plant on East Second street, the early part of next week. They will occupy the building in which the Delphos Creamery was formerly located. The building has been completely remodeled and the entire interior repainted. A large cooler has been built in. Machinery for the Pasteurizing, filtering and handling and cooling milk in a modern way has been installed. When they are located in their new plant they will be better fitted to give service than ever before. While they are moving to their new location next week, they will endeavor to keep their service up to the usual high standard, but ask the indulgence of their patrons in event of interruptions to the service are incurred. Delphos Herald, July 26, 1919 ---------Boxes of Handkerchiefs Found in Oatsfield While Mat. Tornefeld, liv-

ing about four miles west of Delphos, was working in his oatsfield, he found hidden in the oatsfield, fully two hundred boxes of handkerchiefs, each box marked to retail for one dollar. Mr. Tornefeld suspected that this crop had been “planted” on his place for a purpose and he called up the Delphos police who, with detective Allen of the Pennsylvania railroad, made a trip to the place. A large packing case filled with the handkerchiefs had been taken from a car on the Pennsylvania and carried under a cement culvert where they were removed from the case and carried into the oatsfield for concealment. The handkerchiefs were brought to Delphos Friday night and taken to the Penna. station to be shipped to a firm in Chicago to whom they had originally been consigned from a New York concern. Although no arrests have yet been made the police have a clue which may lead to the arrest of the guilty parties. Delphos Herald, July 26, 1919 ---------Accident at Roth Bros. Butcher Shop There occurred in the rear room of Roth Bros. butcher shop yesterday an accident, which under different circumstances, would have resulted in the death of two men. A new chopping machine was recently put in which turns out chopped meat at the rate of 75 pounds per minute. The machine necessarily requires rapid running, and a 45-inch pulley on the shaft overhead furnishes almost lightning-like momentum to the small pulley of a 4-inch belt. Frank and Joseph Roth, two members of the firm, were standing beside a trough at the sausage stuffing machine and John Roth Jr., was working near the rendering kettles only a few feet away. There were several other men working in the room at the time, when without warning the large wooden pulley on the ceiling shaft, bursted and the pieces were hurled to the floor. One large piece weighing perhaps 30 pounds, struck a steam pipe directly over the heads of Messrs. Joe and Frank Roth, which saved them from injury. The pipe was bent double and clouds of steam soon filled the room. The belt flew around like mad after coming loose from the smaller pulley and would itself around John Roth’s neck, throwing him violently to the floor. Everything was pandemonium for a few seconds and after Dr. Brundage was called and found that John had no broken bones. Everyone in the room was nonplussed at their good fortune in escaping alive.

earners — with modest cuts to benefits programs. Obama’s plan promises $4.4 trillion in deficit cuts over 10 years, but more than half of that would come by banking already accomplished cuts and questionable savings from winding down military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. In the run-up to the meeting, Obama has been firm that taxes are going up on upper-bracket earners, though Boehner and McConnell are adamant that his campaign promise of raising the top income tax rate on family income exceeding $250,000 a year is a non-starter. The bargaining landscape has shifted markedly in Obama’s favor since his failed talks with Boehner, R-Ohio, in the summer of 2011 on a “grand bargain” on the budget. Then, Obama squared off against a tea party-driven House on the need to extend the government’s ability to borrow to avoid a marketcrunching first-ever default on its debt obligations. Now newly re-elected, Obama is putting Republicans on notice that he’s willing to mount a national campaign blaming them for holding up renewed tax cuts for most with an ultimatum against renewing them for top income earners. The roadblocks to a deal may come from Obama’s left flank as much as they do from his conservative GOP rivals.

FINDLAY — St. John’s seemed on the verge of sealing its fifth straight Regional football playoff title Friday night at Findlay’s Donnell Stadium, taking a 21-7 lead just 1:05 into the final period. Unbeaten McComb had other plans to end that string and remain unbeaten, rallying for 21 unanswered points and a 28-21 victory over the Blue Jays (8-5). McComb (13-0) takes on Marion Local 7:30 p.m. Friday night in the Division VI state semifinals at a site to be determined by the OHSAA Sunday but with Lima Stadium and Wapakoneta’s Harmon Field likely among the choices. After the Jays had taken that 14-point lead, Cody Wilson began the rally with a 17-yard kickoff return to the 32. Dalton Buck (15-of-19 passing, 170 yards; 15 rushes, 57 yards) got cooking, completing 4-of-5 passes for 59 yards), to lead the 8-play drive. At the Jays’ 1, Wilson took a handoff inside right guard to the end zone. Jacob Beeson tacked on the point-after-touchdown for as 21-14 deficit with 8:31 left. The Jays then made the first of their two crucial turnovers on the night from their 36, with Jerry Brown picking off a pass on the second play from scrimmage and returning it 26 yards to the Jays’ 20. Five running plays later at the 4, Brown (22 rushes, 63 yards) took a sweep to the left side and dove to the pylon for the score. The Jays were called for offsides on the PAT and head coach Kris Alge decided to go for two, with Wilson being stopped on the conversion to still trail 21-20 with 4:54 left. The Jays could not convert on 3rd-and-11 from the 28 and had to punt with junior backup Cody Looser (regular punter/ linebacker Troy Warnecke was out since the first half due to an injury), with their clinching drive starting at the Blue and Gold 44. Keyed by a 30-yard diving connection from Brown to Wilson, McComb scored on play six from the 2; a Brown sweep of the left side and going in standing up with 50 ticks show. Brown then threw to Brandon Ishmael for the 2 and a 28-21 edge. Then began a bizarre sequence. On the scoring play, McComb was called for a postplay unsportsmanlike conduct, thus forcing a kickoff from the 25. Twice, Beeson kicked it out of bounds and twice, St. John’s head coach Todd Schulte made them rekick. Finally, junior Luke MacLennan returned the kick 16 yards to the McComb 25. However, on the very first play, a fumbled exchanged resulted in Dalton Auchmuty recovering at the 23 with 38 ticks left. All Buck had to do was take a knee three times — with St. John’s

For 3 quarters, the St. John’s defense kept the McComb offense in check. Cody Looser, Brett Schwinnen and others bring down Jerry Brown on this play. However, McComb scored the last 21 points to overcome a 14-point fourth-period deficit and sent the Jays out of the playoffs with a 28-21 loss.
using its last two timeouts — to end the game. In the end, McComb ran off 70 plays — 48 rushing (149 yards) and 16-of-22 passing (170 yards) — to the Jays’ 45. “Our defense was on the field way too long. Our offense simply could not sustain much of anything on drives; our scores came on kids just making great plays,” Schulte explained. “We got beat by a better team on both sides of the ball. We made a few plays to keep ourselves alive; they made plays all night long.” Both teams started the game with one fruitless possession but the Jays won the early fieldposition battle, taking over at the Panther 49 on their second drive. Senior Mark Boggs (8-of-16 passing, career-high 227 yards) was 3-of-4 on the drive, including play seven from the Panther 20. He dropped to throw and found senior Andrew Metzger on a skinny post from the left side over the middle at the goal line. Metzger made it 7-0 with 5:40 showing in the first period. The Panthers answered with an 8-play drive from the 33 to the Jays’ 29 that ended on downs as Brown was stopped for no gain on 4th-and-2. The next three drives ended with punts and the fourth saw McComb drove from its 22 to the 42, where on play seven, Wilson was stopped for no gain on 4th-and-2. The Blue Jays took advantage with a 5-play drive, keyed by a 31-yard aerial from Boggs to Metzger (3 grabs, 65 yards). On 1st-and-goal at the 1, junior tailback Tyler Jettinghoff — held down to 22 yards on 14 carries — took a toss off left tackle and cut inside the paydirt. Metzger made it 14-0 with 3:58 showing in the half. Wilson returned the ensuing kickoff 52 yards to the Jays’ 37 to shift momentum. Buck ran for 12 and then connected with Wilson (7 catches, 83 yards) on a screen pass coming from the left edge; he found the seam up the gut and exploded to the end zone with 3:20 showing. Beeson made it a 14-7 score. Neither team could put together a scoring sequence the rest of the half to account for the halftime score. After forcing a 3-and-out on the opening drive of the second half, the Blue Jay offense traveled from the 38 to the McComb 24 but on play seven, a 4thand-9, Boggs threw an incomplete pass, turning the ball over on downs at 6:37 of the third. McComb then took 15 plays and ended up turning the ball over on downs on 4th-and-3 from the Jays’ 4 as Boggs, in at defensive back, batted away Buck’s throw with 58 ticks left. The Jays then added their final points of the game — and it ended up being on the season — via a 5-play sequence, keyed by a 36-yard Boggs’ run. At the 41, he dropped and was forced to scramble. He hit MacLennan (3 grabs, 112 yards) on the right hash at the 45. He set up a move to the outside but then veered all the way back across the gain to gain paydirt. Metzger made it 21-7 with 10:55 left. The Jays’ running game was taken out of the equation, getting 56 tough yards on 29 tries. “Their quickness was what is was made out to be; they were flying all over the field. We struggled maintaining our blocks on the second level; we got there but couldn’t stay on them,” Schulte added. “They took away our running game by selling out. Defensively, we held them down for three quarters but Brown is too good to hold him down for four quarters with that many plays. We finished an inconsistent season tonight. There were times we’d trollers using crankbaits such as Reef Runners and Rapala Deep Husky Jerks; most are caught in the fall by trolling crankbaits in open water or by fishing at night nearshore and around piers. Fall yellow perch fishing can also produce some of the best catches of the season; most anglers fish around the islands or within a few miles of the ports from Huron to Conneaut. ... The water temperature is 44 degrees off of Toledo and 50 degrees off of Cleveland according to the nearshore marine forecast. Steelhead fishing report: With the higher flows and cold weather, expect fish to eventually be distributed throughout the rivers and small-stream reaches several days after river conditions improve. ---Blacklegged ticks becoming more prevalent in Ohio Hunters and outdoor enthusiasts should be aware of a relatively new tick in Ohio, the blacklegged “deer” tick. Be prepared by learning more about tick identification and tick-bourne diseases. American dog ticks, blacklegged ticks and lone star ticks can all pose a threat to outdoorsmen and women during the fall hunting seasons. A few simple measures can decrease your chances of being bitten by a harmful tick while out in the field. Unlike pets and humans, wild animals such as deer are not affected by the blacklegged tick and suffer no ill effects from Lyme disease. Additionally, Lyme disease cannot be transmitted by the consumption of venison. Hunters should keep in mind, however, that hunting and dressing deer may bring them into close contact with infected ticks. Take the time to learn about Ohio’s tick species and how to protect yourself. Also, read about ticks — and how to identify them — and Lyme disease on the Ohio Department of Health’s web site. If you believe the tick is a lone coming in Monday and wondered where we were going to go from here but the kids stuck with it. The kids kept at it and we seemed to hit our groove the last couple of weeks but we couldn’t keep it going tonight. It wasn’t for lack of effort on anyone’s part.” McComb’s rally made it moot in the end.

star or blacklegged tick, or if you are unable to identify the tick, you may send the tick to your local health department for identification. To have the tick identified, it should be saved in a hard container such as a pill bottle or film canister. Place a few blades of grass in the container with the tick. Containers should be mailed as soon as possible. If needed, the ticks may be safely refrigerated for several days until mailed. Be sure to include the following contact information: name, address and phone number; date tick was collected; Ohio county where it was collected; and indicate whether or not the tick was attached to a person or animal. Ticks transmit many diseases. The ones that transmit diseases in Ohio are called “hard ticks”. All tick-borne diseases in Ohio are zoonoses; that is, they are diseases of animals that can be transmitted to people. Normally, these diseases can only be transmitted by the bite of an infected tick. An infected animal or person cannot pass the infection on to another animal or person. Ticks normally become infected by taking a blood meal from an infected animal. However, with Rocky Mountain spotted fever, infected female ticks pass the infection to their offspring through the eggs. Male and female ticks feed on blood and both are capable of transmitting diseases. There are four stages in the life of a tick: egg, larva, nymph and adult. It generally takes several months to two years to complete this life cycle. A blood meal is taken in all except the egg stage. After each blood meal, the skin is shed and the tick matures to its next life stage. Thus it is possible for a tick to transmit disease organisms three times in its life. It is also possible to become infected by handling infected ticks, such as when removing ticks from a pet, when infective body fluids are introduced into a wound or mucus membrane.

The Herald — 7

Sportsmanship Awards

ture the title by beating the ‘Cats. Ohio State: It is hard to believe that we are a week away from THE game when Ohio State takes on Michigan but first things first. Just last year, the Buckeyes broke the Badgers’ hearts when Braxton Miller danced around to avoid a rush and heaved a 40-yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith with 20 seconds remaining to upset No. 15 Wisconsin 33-29 in Ohio Stadium. OSU tunes up for Michigan by getting a win over Wisconsin. NFL: Washington: Philly is on a 5-game skid and have lost the services of Mike Vick to a concussion. Washington is on a slide of their own, losing three in a row ,including a loss last week to the Panthers. However, with a healthy RG3, the ‘Skins will take advantage of the Vickless Eagles. San Francisco: The Bears lost a heart-breaker last week to the Texans, while the 49ers were involved in the first tie in the NFL with the Rams since 2009. San Francisco is still one of the top teams in the NFC and are number one in rushing yards; the Bears are number four in giving up rushing yards. Should be a great game but I will take the home team here. Photos submitted Baltimore: The Steelers just At the 7th annual Delphos Optimist Youth Volleyball tournament, the fifth-grade barely beat the Chiefs on Monday and now will be without Big Ben sportsmanship award was presented to the St. John’s Gardis & Backus team. for who knows how long (my heart is just broken...). Even with him, I would have still went with the Ravens; funny thing is these teams meet again in two weeks. Denver: It appears that the old Peyton Manning is starting to emerge for the Broncos; Denver has won four in a row while the Chargers have lost 4 of their last 5. I am taking Denver to continue to roll. New England: The Colts are on a 4-game winning streak and have already won more games this season than most would have thought they would win. Andrew Luck had been a big difference but going up against the Pats Sunday will be a big task. I’m going with the Patriots to get the win at home. Green Bay: Detroit is in a mustwin situation this week against the Packers; the Lions lost to the Vikings last week and Sunday won’t be any easier as they take on the Packers. Green Bay rolling on a 4-game win streak; make it five this week as they beat the Lions. BUB LINDEMAN COLLEGE: USC: Due to inconsistencies, even the transitive property won’t work for judging this game. USC defeated Cal soundly, who beat UCLA, who destroyed Arizona, The Lima St. Rose sixth-grade team won the Sportsmanship Award for that age group who upset the Trojans. When teams are so unbelievably close, at the Optimist Youth Volleyball tournament.

Pigskin (Continued from Page 6)

there are only a couple things you can rely on when making a pick: recent history and talent. Both of those factors undoubtedly go to USC. While I fully expect a close contest, look for Matt Barkley and the Trojans offense to score a last-minute touchdown to finish off an exhilarating contest. Score Prediction: USC 38, UCLA 35. Oklahoma State;: All the attention gets hoisted on the offense but the Cowboys have actually become an underrated pass defense this season. Oklahoma State has given up a mere 12 touchdown passes through nine games, which ties the secondary with Kansas State for second-best in the Big 12. When you also factor in the Stillwater advantage for the Cowboys, they should be able to come away with a victory on Saturday. Score Prediction: Oklahoma State 45, Texas Tech 38. Oregon: Stanford has nothing even close to stop the Oregon offense this season. The speed of Kenjon Barner, De’Anthony Thomas and Marcus Mariota is far too much for any opposing defense to handle at this point. Look for Oregon to struggle more than we’re used to but come up with yet another comfortable win in its quest for national championship glory. Score Prediction: Oregon 31, Stanford 13. Washington: Two schools heading down opposite roads will continue down those disparate paths this Saturday. Washington is churning toward what it hopes will be a 9-win season, while Colorado already has a foot in 2013. The Huskies are improving rapidly on both sides of the ball, which will only get exacerbated in Boulder. Sankey will make it three straight 100-yard games, complementing the passing of Price. Powell will also run well but his evolution on its own still won’t get the Buffaloes any closer to putting the brakes on the current 6-game slide. Huskies all over the Buffaloes Washington 44-20. Rutgers: There’s not a lot of gap between Cincinnati and Rutgers,and the Bearcats are home. However, while both offenses will fight for yards and points, it’s the Scarlet Knights defense that’ll be the best unit on the field. New quarterback for the Bearcats, Brendon Kay, will be running for his life as they face the league’s best defense. I think Rutgers has more weapons and wins a close brawl 24-21. Ohio State: The Badgers may lean on the ground game again they attempted only seven passes against the Hoosiers in their first contest since quarterback Joel Stave’s season-ending injury.

Just last year, the Buckeyes broke the Badgers’ hearts. Quarterback Braxton Miller danced around to avoid a rush and heaved a 40-yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith with 20 seconds remaining to upset No. 15 Wisconsin 33-29 in Ohio Stadium. I like the Buckeyes in Dairyland 27-24. NFL: Philadelphia at Washington; With Nick Foles most likely getting his first NFL start, look for Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett to go with a bevy of big blitzes against an overmatched Eagles offensive line. RGIII, who has been contained over the course of the Redskins’ last two games, breaks out again against the Eagles. The ’Hogs 35-14. Chicago: This could be the battle of the backups. The Bears will have a week to plan for Colin Kaepernick and counter his mobility and arm and if Alex Smith plays, the Niners lack the ability to come from behind against any defense, much less a defense like this. I like Da Bears 24-17. Baltimore: Byron Leftwich behind the Steelers offensive line and against the Ravens defense (even banged up) is a recipe for disaster. This game should go poorly, quickly. Baltimore 21-7. Denver: The Chargers certainly want revenge for giving up 35 points to the Broncos earlier this season. Unfortunately for the Chargers, the Broncos are playing better football than they were the last time these teams met. Denver’s offense, defense and special teams are all playing well. The Chargers have had trouble stopping the pass and that’s not a recipe for beating Peyton Manning. The Chargers can win this one if Rivers takes care of the ball and they force a few turnovers. Peyton Manning will be too much on offense and Von Miller will be too much against a bad Chargers offensive line. Denver by a Mile 38-13. (EN: Ouch!!). New England: Andrew Luck and the Colts are playing fantastic football compared to their talent level right now but they’re going to run into a buzzsaw in Foxboro. The Patriots are going to pick apart the Colts secondary and put up more points than Luck could hope to come back from. Brady and Belichick make it rough on the rookie 35-17. Green Bay: The comeback kids finally ran out of gas last week and it’s more than clear that the offense isn’t as explosive or well-tuned as it should be. The defense, while hardly the biggest problem or as terrible as it’s made out to be, can’t get stops when it needs one. Packers roll 27-7.

A song of the sea
Q: In the 1940s, I remember a song with lyrics something like “Bell-bottom trousers made of Navy blue. I love a sailor boy, and he loves me, too.” What is the title of the song? Who wrote it? -- I.C., Duarte, Calif. A: “Bell Bottom Trousers” is an old sea shanty about a simple English girl and a sailor. The original words to the shanty were bawdy, which is typical of many of these songs. In 1944, bandleader Moe Jaffe wrote a sanitized version, which he recorded. As a matter of fact, several different performers, including Kay Kyser, Guy Lombardo, Jerry Colonna and Louis Prima, have all recorded the ditty. Q: My friend asked if I saw the young girl who sang the national anthem before the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat basketball game. No, I didn’t but I’m sure it was Jackie Evancho, a contestant on “America’s Got Talent.” -- V.C., San Dimas, Calif. A: Actually, 10-year-old Julia Dale of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., sang the anthem before Game 2 of the NBA Finals in Miami, Fla. “The Star-Spangled Banner” is one of the most difficult songs

to sing, but this young girl sang it well. You can do an Internet search of her name to find one of the many sites featuring her performance. Did you know ... John Wayne was offered the lead in “The Dirty Dozen” (1967), but he turned it down to direct and star in “The Green Berets” (1968)? Of course, the role of Maj. John Wayne Reisman went to Lee Marvin.

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2012 Your social world could be extremely active in the year ahead, which is well and good. However, you must not let it take precedence over your material affairs. Give priority to those skills that pay the bills. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A certain situation could take a favorable twist, enabling you to rectify a situation that has thus far proven to be unsolvable. Make the most of it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- One of your best assets is your ability to view matters in their proper perspective. You won’t let any small mishaps be blown totally out of proportion. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Because you are usually able to make the most out of what you have at hand, your probabilities for personal gain look to be quite encouraging, even when the pickings are slim. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Even though you’re usually reluctant to interfere in the affairs of others, you might find it necessary to step in and offer advice to a pal who is having trouble finding answers. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Don’t be reluctant to speak up if you feel you’re not getting your fair share in a situation that involves something quite valuable. No one will step up for you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You should have an extremely good time being with good friends, with one cavaeat: They might look to you as their source for paying the bill when it arrives. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Positive developments will transpire in spite of you starting off with a bum attitude. Situations that you thought would be negative are likely to turn out just the opposite. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- In your involvements with friends, make yourself focus on all their wonderful qualities rather than just their flaws. Everyone has imperfections, including you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Be smart and refuse to discuss career matters with anyone who has a negative attitude. Your confidante could prove to be a detriment to your mindset. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You’re a natural-born arbitrator, so don’t hesitate to use your talents when two companions are unable to find middle ground. Don’t let them ruin the fun for everybody else. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Assignments and/or chores that confront you aren’t likely to be as difficult as you envision. Do less complaining and much more performing. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- A close friend of yours who is aligned with a group that you’d like to get involved with could make some introductions and fulfill your fondest wishes. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2012 Take advantage of any social developments in the year ahead that offer you a chance to make some quality contacts. People whom you establish a friendly relationship with could prove to be of tremendous help both personally and in your career. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you’re concerned about taking a certain action, put it off until you can evaluate it more clearly. You need to first know what the ramifications could be. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Getting your facts straight should always be of concern to you, but especially so if you are involved in a costly project. Be sure you look quite closely before you leap. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t be satisfied with ballpark figures concerning an important financial matter. If you’re inclined to jump to conclusions, you could get yourself in trouble very fast. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -An important objective might never be achieved if you ignore the small details. You cannot be oblivious to them -- even though they’re tiny, they still matter. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -This might not be one of your better days for keeping things to yourself. A smart adversary who is aware of your shortcomings might get you to tell much more than you should. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Even if you feel justified in giving a nettlesome someone a piece of your mind, you’d be smart to avoid it. It would only increase your difficulties with the offending party. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Regardless of the circumstances, don’t volunteer any unrequested criticism, suggestions or advice. Instead of getting a “thank you,” you’re more likely to get a huge reprimand. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Owing to your focus on the insignificant rather than on the essentials, this isn’t likely to be one of your more productive days. Turn that around. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Before making any costly plans that include a friend or associate, it’s best you check first to make sure that the other party is amenable. Your pal might not be on board. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Opening up a touchy domestic issue is apt to create some unnecessary friction within the household. Don’t voice anything without first considering the consequences. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Before pointing out others’ faults, you had better take a look at your own behavior. Although you might start the critique, others are guaranteed to finish it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Although you are likely to be quite adept at keeping large expenditures under control, it could be the smaller ones that pile up on you. Be both pennywise and pound-conscious.

Dancers from The Dancer By Gina are preparing for their Thanksgiving holiday with rehearsals for their performance in the 86th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. The girls will be part of Spirit of America Dance, consisting of dancers from select studios and high schools across the country. It is The Dancer By Gina’s fourth appearance in the parade but the first experience for this group of dancers. The studio was selected from a Columbus dance competition in their initial appearance and are invited back regularly to perform in the “longest running show on Broadway.” The Dancer By Gina is the only dance studio representing Ohio this year. The girls will arrive in NYC on the Saturday prior to Thanksgiving and have rehearsals every day leading up to the parade. The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a 2 1/2-mile-long parade delighting more than 60 million people. Hundreds of clowns, giant balloons, legendary performers and musical groups lead the way to the arrival of Santa Claus at the parade’s finale. While in New York, the dancers and their chaperones will also enjoy the historic landmarks of NYC, a Broadway show and the Radio City Christmas Spectacular featuring the Rockettes. Director, Gina Wiley will also be taking the girls to dance classes at Broadway Dance Center. The parade will start at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day and NBC will cover their actual performance. Those going to New York City to participate in the parade are, front from left, Alexandra Schroeder (Ottawa), Jessica Koverman (Delphos), Haylee Koester (Ottoville), Kaitlyn Slate (Delphos), Alexis Thorbahn (Ottoville) and Kylie Fritz (Delphos); row two, Abbey Acerro (Lima), Rachel Mahlie (Delphos), Morgan Jostpille (Delphos), Lyndsay Mohler (Delphos), Lyndsey Warnecke (Delphos), Anna Bendele (Ottoville), Kaitlyn O’Connor (Lima); and back, Taylor Bresson (Lima), Katie Acerro (Lima), Sarah Hellman (Fort Jennings), Morgan Beining (Ottoville), Alyssa Odenweller (Kalida) and Stephanie Lamoreau (Lima).
