In between the Black Friday sales and the Cyber Monday
deals is Small Business today, a day set aside to support the
small businesses that play a vital role in creating jobs and
economic opportunities all across the country.
Small Business Saturday is an event started by American
Express and is now widely embraced by many organiza-
tions including the Small Business Administration. There
is even a Congressional resolution urging shoppers to
participate; more than 98,000 consumers have pledged to
shop on this day.
Small Business Saturday can help people attract custom-
ers and increase sales through local collaborations and are
the back bone of our communities. And when consumers
shop small, they not only they get great products and ser-
vices, but they support our neighbors and strengthen local
Over the last two decades, small and new businesses
have been responsible for creating two out of every three
new jobs in the U.S.; today over half of all working
Americans own or work for a small business. In fact, 44
percent of the total U.S. private payrolls are paid by small
Last year, Small Business Saturday gave a boost to
many Main Street businesses, with more than 100 million
Americans shopping at independently-owned small busi-
nesses. Independent retailers doing business in communi-
ties with a buy local initiative reported a 5.6-percent
growth increase, as compared to a 2.1-percent growth
increase in areas elsewhere.
Business owners can receive free Small Business
Saturday promotional materials at

Customers can explore which businesses in the com-
munity participate in Small Business Saturday at www. The website provides information on busi-
nesses currently registered and how consumers can rally
communities to support the initiative.
By shopping small, everyone can lend a hand helping
Americas small businesses do what they do best: grow
their businesses, create good jobs and ensure that their
communities are vibrant.

among the retail and restau-
rants of Downtown Delphos
is one of the jewels of the
city: the Delphos Canal
Commission Museum.
From Dec. 1-23, the muse-
um will be transformed into a
Christmas wonderland filled
with more than 100 Christmas
trees and other holiday deco-
Since 1999, the museum
has opened its doors to local
groups, families and individu-
als to participate in the annu-
al Christmas Tree Festival.
Museum trustees also deco-
rate more than 60 trees.
Volunteer Marilyn Wagner
summarized the lengthy pro-
cess, or labor of love as she
calls it. Thirty-three volun-
teers and local organizations
have been working since Oct.
27 setting up and decorat-
ing approximately 100 trees,
wreaths and nativity scenes.
There is still work to do.
As for the new displays,
volunteer Dorothy Hoffmans
creativity has been flowing
this year. She has designed
new theme trees, includ-
ing Grandmas Love and
School Fun Numbers and
Tree decor can range
from traditional Christmas
fare to club themes to items
for the Delphos Community
Christmas Project. The Green
Thumb Garden Club uses
organic items for its offering;
vibrant red and deep purple
decorations showcase the
Divine Divas Red Hat Ladies
theme; Harley Davidson
motorcycles, of course, for
Do-Right MC; and handmade
quilted items represent the
Delphos Quilters Club.
Several families also get
in the act. Four generations
of the Virgil German fam-
ily will spend an afternoon
decorating a tree with kitchen
gadgets that will be distrib-
uted through the Christmas
One of the favorite dis-
plays each year is a nativity
set made by Gerhard Laudick
(b. 9-26-1853, d. 5-19-
1912) for his grandchilds
first Christmas. Richard C.
Mueller (b. 9-23-1911, d.
12-02-1993) was the first
child of Gerhards daugh-
ter, Clara Gertrude Laudick
and Arthur Art Mueller.
Gerhard died 8 months after
Richard was born. The origi-
nal lighting for the crib was
with coal oil lamps but it
was converted to electric-
ity around 1923. Some of
the little figurines actually
date from 1888. This nativ-
ity set has been a cherished
part of the Mueller familys
Christmas for 100 years and
they choose to display it at

Intveen giving US a trial run
DELPHOS Fifteen-
year-old Julie Intveen of Verl,
Germany, has dreamed about
one day moving to America
and starting a life here.
With the friendship-pact
and cultural-exchange pro-
gram between Delphos and
Verl, Intveen was able to get
a taste of what that would be
Ive always thought about
living in America later, she
said. I thought this would
be a good way to learn the
language better and try being
far away from home for a
Now that shes here,
Intveen finds the United
States arent much different
than she imagined.
The people are more
friendly but I expected that
because I heard a lot about
it from last years students
who came here, she said.
I like how nice everyone is.
Everyone talks to me and asks
me questions. I like it here.
There are so many things to
discover and places to see.
America is way bigger than
Germany. There are so many
restaurants, too, even in a
little town like Delphos. Verl
is almost the same size and
we dont have nearly as many
When not sitting in class at
St. Johns, Intveen has been
spending her time getting
acquainted with staples of
American culture and engag-
ing in some of the same activ-
ities she does at home.
I play tennis at home and
I go horseback riding, she
said. Ive played tennis here
and we have horses out in
the barn, so I can ride here,
too. Ive seen a lot of movies,
like The Blind Side, The
Campaign and House at the
end of the Street. My favor-
ite food that Ive had here is
Pop Tarts.
Intveen has grown close
to her host family, Larry and
Heather Bonifas and their
children, and has made many
friends while going to school
at St. Johns.
If I could take anything
back home with me, it would
be all of the friends Ive got
here and the people Ive got-
ten close to, she said.
The cultural exchange stu-
dents head back to Germany
on Dec. 8 and Intveen hopes
it wont be too long before
she can make the trip back
I would definitely like to
come back someday, maybe
for college, she said. I
want to study journalism,
maybe work in newspapers.
I think moving here would
be the best thing that could
happen for me. I miss my
family but I dont really want
to go back. My time here has

home are Peter and Martina

old sister named Claire.

The carpeting came from one store; the

When my father owned his business, he
made it a practice to shop locally and support
those who supported his business.
It was a good practice and still is today.
I know it sometimes is more attractive to
leave Delphos to shop and there are certain
things that just arent available here. But for
the most part, we have a variety of stores from
which to choose our goods.
What would you think if you couldnt get
anything here? What if there were no grocery
store, no florists or restaurants. How about
that plumbing part you need late Saturday
afternoon? In the time it takes to get ready
to go somewhere else, get there, get the part
and get home, you could have run up to the
local hardware store, got the part, gone home,
installed the part and be drinking a cold bev-
erage and watching TV by the time you got
home from somewhere else.
Look at it this way. Time is money. If you
dont value your time, you must not have
enough to do. Come over to my house; Ill
put you to work. I never seem to have enough
time to do most of the things I need to at
I know money is money, too. But if we
dont support the ones who support us, who
Today is Shop Local Saturday (re: front
page story). Shopping locally helps our local
economy. When you spend your dollars at an
independent, local business, you keep more
money here supporting your communitys
social services, schools, your public library
and local non-profits. According to elephant-, locally-owned businesses return
about 80 percent of each dollar to their com-
munity. And each dollar spent at a local busi-
ness will return up to five times that amount
within your community through city taxes,
employees wages and purchases of materi-
als, supplies and services at other independent
It only makes sense to shop locally. Local
supports local and in this day and age of dwin-
dling state and federal support to emergency
and social services and our schools, it is more
important than ever.
Now, most of us make purchases at a
national store of some sort. But if we just
make most of our purchases from businesses
that are local, if we make the conscious deci-
sion to support our own community, more
good things will happen where we live. And
where we live is pretty important.
I like it here. Delphos has charm and the
people are second to none.
I can remember when Fruehauf went out.
My dad was afraid Delphos would dry up
and blow away. But were still here. We per-
Times are tough and I have a feeling they
are going to get a little worse before they get
Lets stick together and see if we can all
make it.

In 1968, you could buy a
gallon of gas for 34 cents;
the average cost of a new
house was $14,950; the aver-
age cost of a new car was
$2,822; and minimum wage
was only $1.60 an hour with
the average income per year
being $7,850.
It was a year that con-
sisted of both good and bad
events. Apollo 8 became the
first manned space craft to
orbit the moon and Richard
M. Nixon was elected presi-
dent. Tragically, both Robert
Kennedy and Martin Luther
King Jr. were assassinated
and the controversial Vietnam
War was continuing. That
war became more personal
when I became a soldier in
the United States Army.
My wife, Janie, and I had
only been married for four
months. I was taking a break
from college and continu-
ing to work as a part-time
regular at the Kroger grocery
store for $3 an hour. We
were enjoying married life in
our duplex apartment but for
some reason had stayed all
night at my wifes parents
After breakfast, we got in
our 1961 Ford Galaxy 500
to head for our home but it
wouldnt start. John Dunn,
my father-in-law, was trying
to help me get the car started.
During that effort we man-
aged to catch the drivers side
front door in the sloping side
of the yard which caused it to
be damaged and also broke
out a rear tail light when
John gave us a push with his
Chevy station wagon.
The good news was the
car was running and we
were headed for home.
Unfortunately, the engine of
our car caught on fire before
we arrived. Fortunately, we
were close to a service sta-
tion when the car burst into
flames. Workers at the sta-
tion extinguished the fire,
and helped me push the car
into their parking area.
Since we were close to
home and it would be a while
before wed know how much
repairs would cost or if we
could afford to fix the car, we
walked to our apartment. We
were somewhat shaken as it
had been a difficult morn-
ing but we were grateful that
we werent injured, that we
had a home to go to and that
we were so much in love. It
was a tough day but surely it
would start getting better.
Before going inside, I got
our mail and noticed that
there was a registered letter
from the United States Army.
The letter notified me that I
had been drafted and was to
report for duty in two weeks.
What had been a tough day
in March 1968, became even
more difficult
The following months
were full of challenging days
and lonely nights as I made
the adjustment to serving our
country and being trained as
a non-commissioned officer.
I had orders to go to Vietnam
but a kidney infection was
temporarily putting that
assignment on hold. It was
November 13, 1968, when
I received word that my
wife was in labor and would
soon be giving birth to our
first child. The Army gave
me emergency leave and I
boarded a bus that would
take me on a 13-hour jour-
ney from Fort Knox, Ky., to
the hospital in Parkersburg,
I was glad that I got there
before the birth of our child,
but was only allowed to see
Janie for a few minutes before
I was chased out of the room.
Dads were not allowed in
the delivery room in those
days. I remember pacing the
floor and hoping that every-
thing was going to be okay.
Finally, a nurse came out
holding a little baby boy and
told me both mommy and
baby were doing fine.
This November, weve
had the opportunity to cel-
ebrate Veterans Day and to
remember those who have
served and are serving to
defend our freedom as well as
others. Weve also enjoyed
another Thanksgiving and
have given thanks to our
Heavenly Father for all of
His blessings.
Im so thankful for life.
Tomorrow, Janie and I will
celebrate our 45th wedding
anniversary at Delphos First
Assembly of God with our
church family.
The years continue to
quickly come and go. Years
full of special moments and
memories like that day of
Nov. 14, 1968, when almost
one year after marrying
Janie, I became a father to
Michael Steven Eaton. It
really sank in when I got to
hold Mike for the first time
I was a dad!

The Days

50 Years Ago 1962
A fox that out-foxed himself was bagged by a Delphos
hunter Thursday on the Spieles farm three miles west of
Delphos. Fred Shepherd was as surprised as the fox when he saw
it suddenly coming at him. Ron Spieles and two friends from
Dayton, who were pheasant hunting, ran the fox through a corn
row right out on Shepherd, who shot the fox.

During the past few
weeks, I have had the honor
of talking to several veterans.
Some are willing to tell their
stories; others prefer to just
forget most of it. Id like to
relate some of their experi-
ences with you.
Last week, the Veterans
Day Program for the students
of Fort Jennings School came
to the Memorial Hall to tour
the Veterans Museum and
listen to Retired Chief Petty
Officer Randy Gasser relate
some of his experiences. The
high school students came in
the morning and the elemen-
tary grades were bused over
in the afternoon.
Randy came in his dress
blues, which was very impres-
sive. He explained many of
his badges and medals to
them. Students were very
interested and asked many
Chief Gasser retired in
February 2012, concluding a
career of 26 years of service
in the Navy and to the nation.
He enlisted in the US Navys
Delayed Entry Program in
September 1981 and then
reported to Boot Camp at the
Great Lakes Training Center
in Chicago in January 1982.
His first experience at sea
was on the USS Guadalcanal,
out of Norfolk, Virginia to the
North Atlantic for exercises.
While on the USS Dwight
Eisenhower, he was deployed
to the Mediterranean Sea and
the Caribbean. During this
time his unit supported the
Multi-National Peacekeeping
Force after the Marine bar-
racks bombing in Beirut,
Lebanon. In 1986 his unit
embarked on the USS John F.
Kennedy in support of opera-
tions in the Gulf of Sidra near
In 1987 he transferred to
the Naval Aviation Depot in
Jacksonville, Florida, where
he assumed the duties of Fleet
Training Coordinator and
Drug and Alcohol Program
In January 1990 he left
active duty and enlisted in
the US Navy Reserves. In
May, 1990 he moved back
to Ohio and was transferred
to the Navy & Marine Corp
Reserve Unit at Fort Wayne,
Indiana, until 1996
Chief Gasser rejoined the
Navy Reserve in January
2000. In the wake of the
bombing of the USS Cole he
was recalled to active duty
and his unit was sent to con-
duct Anti Terrorism Force
Protection operations in the
In January 2003, he was
again recalled to active duty
in support of Iraqi Freedom.
In 2004, he was again recalled
and qualified as Boat Watch
Officer. During this time he
was privileged to drive one
of the Patrol Boats, whose
job it was to protect the ships
in and out of port and the off
shore oil rigs. He told stu-
dents it was fun to drive one
of those speed boats, even
though it was dangerous.
He has been awarded many
medals, including the Navy
and Marine Commendation
Medal and even the Army
Commendation pin, for some
of his duties which involved
the US Army. He also has a
special medal for driving a
While describing the size
of an aircraft carrier to the
students, he said you could
fit all the residents of Fort
Jennings, Ottoville, Kalida
and half of Delphos on a car-
rier. Randy mentioned that
during one ten-year period,
he was away from home 7 1/2
years. He was happy to say
he has been in 41 countries of
the World.
Randy retired in February
2012. He is currently the
Ombudsman Director of
the Ohio Committee of the
Employer Support of the
Guard and Reserve (ESGR)
This is an agency of the
Department of Defense. In
this position they recog-
nize employers for keep-
ing employees who are in
the Reserves and have to
go away for two weeks of
training each year. They also
go to bat for reserve service
men and women, who have
trouble keeping their jobs or
returning to their jobs after
reserve duty. They have a 90
percent success rate.
Randy is employed
by UNOH as the Military
Relations Coordinator where
he conducts extensive out-
reach and counseling to
veterans, their spouse and
dependents in order to edu-
cate them on benefits they
may be eligible for.
Randy also mentioned
the fact that when they were
on-shore, they slept in tents.
When going to bed they hung
their boots upside down to
keep scorpions from crawl-
ing in them. He said These
scorpions were huge and he
didnt care to share his boots
with any of them.
I also had the pleasure of
talking to Father John Stites,
the pastor of the Immaculate
Conception Catholic Church
in Ottoville. Father John
is also a veteran of the US
Army. Following high school
he attended Defiance College
for a year, then took off to
work for a time with Dinner
Bell Foods. It was during this
period when he was drafted in
July 1964. He took his basics
at Fort Knox, then was sent
to Fort Lewis, Washington,
where he was in the main-
tenance department. Then
President Johnson called for
that 150,000 troops and he
was sent to Viet Nam. He
served at AN KHE where
they supplied support to the
First Calvary. Their base was
in the jungle in the Viet Nam
Highlands where they slept
in tents in the jungle. From
their camp on the mountain
top they had a good view of
the area, which was beautiful
when they arrived. It was an
agricultural area, which they
had to turn into an Army
Camp. He said: It was a
total disruption of the lives
of those farmers and their
Father John said he has the
utmost respect for those who
served in the infantry and
such in the jungles. Father
John said he, like many oth-
ers was exposed to Agent
Orange and is entitled to
Military Disability. He said
our government doesnt like
to admit to all the Agent
Orange effects.
He served in Viet Nam for
a year and was discharged
29 July 1966. After coming
home he had to sort things
out in his life. He had always
wanted to be a teacher so he
enrolled again in Defiance
College. During his college
years he worked as a Police
As time went by, fol-

no insurance. Nothing was
saved from the mill.

ing. Mr. Bremer arose about
5 oclock this morning and
saw the smoke coming
from the ruins of Shaffers

through the mud to the home
of Syl Shaffer on First street
and breathlessly told him
that the saw sill was on fire.

ly all the time, the din of

shouting of the fire laddies,
failing to wake him.

Delphos Herald,
Feb. 7, 1896
Controversy on Covering
Over Canal for Parking
We favor covering over
a part of the Miami & Erie
Canal for a parking lot.
We not only favor that,
but fail to see how any citi-
zen of Delphos can refrain
from knowing the proposal
that has been in the hopper
for a long time.
Businessmen, who have
been trying to get the Delphos
city council to make using
the canal for off-street park-
ing and finding themselves
facing a group of men who
are, sitting tight. One of the
councilmen has been giving
merchants a hard time, stat-
ing that this is something that
will not benefit everyone.
The argument is the same
as saying you are not going
to pay to have your appendix
taken out because it wont
help your broken leg.
There is not one thing that
the Delphos city government
has ever done that directly
has benefitted every member
of the population and there is
nothing that ever will.
But a healthy, thriving
community with good busi-
ness and good employment
for everyone is something that
will indirectly, if not directly,
help the community as much
as anything else will do.
The merchants arent ask-
ing much. Most of the funds
can come out of the past and
future funds which already
long ago were designed
for improvement of off-street
There are among us in
Delphos, some people who
believe the canal, as it pass-
es through Delphos, should
be used for historical pur-
poses. No one in Delphos
is more in favor of utiliz-
ing the canal for this than is
the Delphos Daily Herald.
Long ago, City Editor Jim
Buckholtz began advocating
such improvements be made.
The Herald wants this done
for commercial as well as
historical reasons. We have
printed on numerous occa-
sions the work other towns
have done to improve them-
selves. Some of our readers
will remember the Kansas
town that helped to bring
prosperity to the community
by advertising itself as pos-
sessing the largest hand-dug
well in the world. (It was
Greensburg, Kansas that had
the largest hand-dug well in
the world at 109 feet deep
by 32 feet diameter as told
in Farm and Ranch Living
magazine. R.H.)
Surely, somewhere, there
is a canal boat that can be
brought to Delphos and
placed at the Fifth St. bridge.
Surely we can bring tends of
thousands of people to the
community by putting forth
a little effort at beautifying
the canal.
This would not in the
slightest interfere with plans
for covering or tubing part
of the canal so that when the
State of Ohio succeeds in
forcing Delphos to abandon
its center-of-the-street park-
ing, the townspeople will
have some place to park.
A false report is one that
sometimes is extremely dif-
ficult to kill. Every time the
Main St. merchants discuss
off-street parking over the
canal someone comes out
with a reason why the canal
should not be filled in. No
matter how hard the mer-
chants explain that they do
not want the canal filled in,
but only tubed and covered
over part of it, the answer
comes back that the canal
should not be filled in.
We cannot emphasize
strongly enough our feel-
ing that this is merely not
something for the Main St.
merchants. It is also a con-
venience for shoppers. If it
will not be a definite service
to them, then the building of
a municipal parking lot is a
very foolish action, since no
one will use it.

John The Baptist
in Trouble
John Scott, more familiarly
known as John the Baptist,
who has a shoe repair shop
on East Second street oppo-
site the City Building, tried
to end his earthly woes last
night, but was prevented
from doing so.
John had his hair cut yes-
terday and last night attend-
ed a revival meeting. After
the services were over, he
filled up on bad booze, and
about 11 oclock, was taken
home by Al Bryan, when
he became unable to prop-
erly care for himself. Al saw
him to the door and put him
inside, but the restless John
came outside. Al again put
him into the room when he
took out his pocket knife,
opened it and made a slash at
his neck.
Al grabbed the knife from
him and called night officer
ONeill from across the street.
Scott then picked up a keen
edged shoemakers knife and
went after his jugular vein
in a manner which showed
that he meant business. Mr.
ONeill, after a short strug-
gle, wrenched the dangerous
instrument from his hand and
he did not succeed in doing
himself any harm other than
a slight scratch on his neck.
Scotts wife had almost gone
into hysterics by this time, and
to avoid further trouble for
the night, Officer ONeill and
Lindeman locked him up.
This morning his brains
had cast off the cobwebs
which thickened them last
night, and he had the appear-
ance of a sick chicken. John
is generally a straight man,

By now most of you
have already feasted on the
big, golden-brown bird and
enjoyed visiting with family
and friends. Great food, great
fun, and great conversation
it all makes for
a great family get-
together. We get to
learn whats going
on with each other,
see how the little
ones have grown,
and discover what
were all truly thank-
ful for.
If youve fol-
lowed the Scott
German story (my
son-in-law), you probably
know just what this Rostorfer
and German family are so
thankful for this year. Scott
recently underwent surgery
for a ruptured disc and is
scheduled to have the bone
put back in his skull the week
of Dec. 3. We thank God for
his continued healing powers
and thank you all for your
prayers, thoughts, and sup-
port. Scott continues on his
difficult road to a complete
recovery. Thanksgiving cer-
tainly has a whole new mean-
ing for our families.
It is appropriate at this time
of the year to extend our thank
yous to our volunteers who
give so freely of their time;
all in the mission of help-
ing others in need. We have
volunteers that cant stand or
lift anymore but want to con-
tinue to help, so they call and
organize the times that other
volunteers can help. We have
volunteers that want to sort
but would rather not work
a cash register or bag. Then
again, some like doing both.
Its whatever you feel you
can do to help in any capacity.
You are all so appre-
ciated. If all your chil-
dren are in school and
youre looking to fill a
few hours, wed love
to have your help.
Whatsoever you
do to the least of my
brothers, that you do
unto me. Matthew
We are also so
thankful for the tre-
mendous support from our
community. Because of your
donations and generosity, we
are able to help so many in
need. Weve been receiving
such nice donations from the
fall cleaning spree as well as
some much appreciated finan-
cial donations as well.
Keep this tip in mind that
someone passed along recent-
ly: At their family get-togeth-
ers, each and every person
big and small, brings a non-
perishable item to the party.
It can be a canned or boxed
food item, a paper product, a
personal care item, cleaning
supplies, or diapers. Each per-
son places their donation in a
big box and it gets donated to
the Food Pantry here at the
Thrift Shop.
Its a reminder and rein-
forcement to the little ones, as
well as to the adults, that the
true meaning of Christmas is
in the giving: For God so
loved the world that He gave
His only begotten Son.
Stop in at the Thrift Shop
and check out all the nice
items in the Boutique. There
are some great gift ideas.
There are so many items with
the price tags still on them.

6 The Herald Saturday, November 24, 2012
Everybody was solid last week
the games must have been
too easy!
Dave Boninsegna set the pace
at 10-2 (4-2, 6-0) and I and Guest
Picker Bub Lindeman were both
9-3, though in different ways. I
went 3-3 and 6-0 and he went 4-2
and 5-1.
Therefore, our marks now
stand at 71-37 (36-18, 35-19) for
Dave; 61-47 (28-26, 33-21) for
moi; and 42-29 (21-14, 21-15) for
the GP.
Bob Weber, part-timer at the
Delphos Herald, joins this miser-
able cast in making his picking
God help him!
Here are the games.
College: Michigan at
Ohio State; Stanford at UCLA;
Oklahoma State at Oklahoma;
Florida at Florida State; South
Carolina at Clemson; Oregon at
Oregon State.
NFL: Minnesota at Chicago;
Green Bay at N. Y. Giants; Seattle
at Miami; Baltimore
at San Diego; San
Francisco at New
Orleans; Pittsburgh at
Game at The Shoe.
This is the Buckeyes
BCS game since they
cannot play in a real
one. A matchup of
two all-purpose quar-
terbacks if Darnell
Robinson plays for
That Team Up North. OSU needs
to tackle Mr. Robinson by the
hair hard! and they win.
Even if they dont, they still win
in Urban Meyers introduction to
The Game because Miller puts
his early stamp on next years
Heisman race.
UCLA: Two teams coming
off ultra-emotional victories over
archrivals. Bruins get the nod
here simply because this game
is in the Rose Bowl and it should
be easier for them because
Cardinal are on the road again
ah, sounds like a song title!
Bedlam Series. Though this
game is in Norman, Oklahomas
offense isnt what it has been,
while Cowboys seem
to have not skipped a
beat from last season;
the defense isnt hor-
rible and Sooners are
far cry from nasty units
of years past. I like
Oklahoma State to get
the road win here.
Gators have really
struggled against far-
inferior opponents the
last couple of weeks.
Could be they were
looking ahead but that
far? Seminoles havent gotten lot
of national love and want to prove
they are again among the nations
best. Expect a low-scoring game
both defenses are first-rate
but the Noles to get big win in
CLEMSON: Lattimore not
there for Gamecocks; what a
shame because he is such a
difference-maker. Taj Boyd a
dual-threat QB for Tigers and any
defense will tell you those guys
are hard to really stop. I like the
Tigers in Death Valley.
OREGON: The (un)Civil War
in Corvallis. Ducks, well, choked
last week against Stanford. They
are fighting for BCS lives here.
Simply put, they have too much
speed for Beavers.
CHICAGO: Will Jay Cutler
play? It looks good for now. Even
if he doesnt, Campbell should
be a little better this week. Either
way, I like Da Bears defense
in Soldier Field against All-Day
Petersen and Company.
GREEN BAY: Packers have
crushed all this what is wrong
with Packers? nonsense of early
season. Now, its what is wrong
with Giants? November, thats
what. Their freefall continues ver-
sus rested Pack.
MIAMI: The cross-country trek
from Pacific Northwest to Gulf
Coast takes its toll. Neither offense
is that good but both defenses are
pretty stout. Tannehill gets nod
over Wilson in battle of rookie
SAN DIEGO: Ravens com-
ing off hard-fought, emotional,
physical, hard-hitting, draining,
etc., game with archrival Steelers
and get them again next week
in Baltimore. Sandwich game on
Left Coast with Chargers gets lost
in shuffle.
coming off beat-down of Bears in
Monday night but now have QB
controversy between Alex Smith
and Colin Kaepernick. Dont think
thats such a good idea but against
woeful Saints pass defense, wont
be as bad. 49ers D slows down
Brees just enough to win in the
PITTSBURGH: Charlie Batch
starts for Steelers. That wont be
the key. What will be is a rookie
although a 29-year-old rookie
against Blitzburg. BTW: in a
copy-cat league, I cant figure out
why more teams cant do this.
Ohio State: Ohio State really
doesnt have a lot to play for
except beating Michigan; that is
just enough. Urban Meyer has
done a great job with this team
this year and the years ahead are
looking great. Its at The Shoe,
the crowd will be electric and the
Buckeyes will get the win.
Stanford: Stanford is coming
off a big upset of Oregon that
really put a twist on the BCS
rankings. This week, they gear
up for the PAC 12 title game and
despite a big win over USC last
week by UCLA, I like the Cardinal
to get the win.
Oklahoma: An outright Big 12
title is back in play for No. 14
Oklahoma after first-place Kansas
State suffered its first loss of the
season; even No. 22 Oklahoma
State could claim a share of the
title. I am feeling the home team
in this one.
Florida: Florida is hoping to
play in their first national champi-
onship game since winning their
second title in three seasons in
2008; the Gators need to win
and hope a few things break
their way. USC beating No. 1
Notre Dame would be a huge
help, as would losses by Alabama
and Georgia this weekend. The
Gators still have that outside shot
giving them enough incentive to
gain the win in this big rivalry.
Clemson: Its the week
Clemson and South Carolina fans
have waited for all year. And
its never been this big -- or this
testy. The 12th-ranked
Tigers (10-1) and 13th-
ranked Gamecocks (9-2)
play Saturday at Death
Valley. This could be one
of the better games of the
week; for no real reason
I am going to go with
Clemson to gain the win
at home.
Oregon: The Ducks
are going to come out
with a vengeance after
their loss last week and
just take it out on Oregon
Chicago: The Bears got
stunned on Monday night and like
Oregon in the college game, they
are going to take out their frustra-
tions on the Vikings.
Green Bay: This could be the
game in the NFL, but I think
that Green Bay is going to have
enough to beat the Giants in
Seattle: All of a sudden, the
Seahawks are hot and in conten-
tion for a possible playoff spot. I
think they go to Miami and knock
off the also-surging Dolphins.
Baltimore: The Chargers are a
mess and the Ravens are going
to make things a lot messier for
Norv Turner and San Diego.
New Orleans: We will
see if the 49ers back-
up really does have the
hot hand but I think the
Saints will be hotter and
beat the Niners.
Cleveland: This could
be the Upset Special; call
me crazy but the Browns
did play a good game
against the Cowboys and
I will take them over the
Benless Steelers.
100th Grey Cup -
Toronto vs Calgary:
Sunday is the 100th Grey
Cup for the Canadian Football
League Championship and the
Toronto Argonauts get the home
field as the Cup is being played in
Toronto. The Argos knocked off
Montreal last week, while Calgary
beat the defending champs in the
BC Lions. Toronto got Ricky Ray
from Edmonton for just this occa-
sion and I say he comes through
and gives the home crowd (and
me) something to cheer about.
Ohio State - The State Up
North has no chance - bleed
scarlet and gray, baby! Im so
proud of these kids this year.
What theyve accomplished (win
or lose Saturday) this year is sim-
ply amazing! A win Saturday will
be huge for next years recruit-
ing class. Flush the Wolverines
(Editors Note: Such violent
talk! heh heh!)!
Stanford - Very impressed
with the Cardinal defense. Believe
UCLA could have a letdown after
big win over USC.
Oklahoma - Going with
the Sooners, even though the
Cowboys always are a tough out.
Florida State - Even with
Florida getting back QB Driskel,
Im going with the Seminoles in
this one. Look for Florida States
QB E J Manuel to have a big
Clemson - Clemsons high
scoring offense vs. South
Carolinas stingy defense. I look
for the Tigers to avenge last sea-
sons defeat.
Oregon - The Ducks are the
most fun and exciting team to
watch in college football. I love
their uniforms and theyre the
wave of the future in offensive
game planning.
Chicago - The Bears got
embarrassed Monday night. Look
for their defense to play better
and the offense just squeak by
with enough points. However, I
want Adrian Peterson to have a
big game for my fantasy team.
Green Bay - What a game! Two
of the top five QBs in the league.
Im going with the Packers.
Seattle - The Seahawks con-
tinue to pull out wins and edge
their way to a possible wild card
playoff spot.
San Diego - The Ravens
defense is not what it used to
be. If the Steelers had not been
playing senior citizen QBs against
them last week, they would have
lost. Chargers in an upset at
New Orleans - The Superdome
will be rocking, Drew Brees can
score from anywhere on the field.
I think the QB controversy with
the 49ers will be a bigger issue
than most people think.
Cleveland - Dont tell my wife
(HUGE Steelers fan; EN: Im tell-
ing! Hey, Mrs. Weber ...) but until
Ben comes back, I dont see the
Steelers winning another game
this season with Charlie Batch
(CMON MAN)!!!!

Division of Wildlife
Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing
Regulations to Remember:
The daily bag limit for walleye
on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is 6 fish
per angler with a minimum size limit
of 15 inches.
The daily bag limit for yellow
perch is 30 fish per angler on all
Ohio waters of Lake Erie.
The trout and salmon daily bag
limit is 2 fish per angler. The mini-
mum size limit for trout/salmon is
12 inches.
The black bass (largemouth and
smallmouth bass) daily bag limit
is 5 fish per angler with a 14-inch
minimum size limit.
Over the past week, walleye
were caught west of Green and
Rattlesnake islands, between
Green and Catawba islands and
most recently, about 1.5 miles south
of F can of the Camp Perry fir-
ing range. Trollers are using crank-
baits such as Reef Runners and
Rapala Deep Husky Jerks; most
walleye are caught in the fall by
trolling crankbaits in open water or
by fishing at night nearshore and
around piers. Fall yellow perch fish-
ing 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.
Ohios Lake Erie Steelhead
Stream and pier anglers have
an excellent opportunity to catch
quality-sized steelhead trout from
September through May.
The DOW annually stocks 5
Lake Erie tributary streams with
6-8 yearling Little Manistee River
(Michigan) strain of steelhead.
These fish migrate out into Lake Erie
and spend the summer in the cooler
part of the lake before returning to
streams during the fall through the
spring. Steelhead trout caught in the
streams typically average 25 inches
and weigh 5-6 pounds. These fish
have usually spent 2-3 summers
out in the lake; however, there are
a good number of fish that are over
30 and weigh more than 10 pounds
and have spent up to six summers
in the lake.
Ohios primary steelhead streams
are Vermilion, Rocky, Chagrin and
Grand rivers and Conneaut Creek.
Several other rivers, including the
Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Huron and
Black, along with Arcola, Cowles,
Wheeler, French, Euclid, Turkey,
Beaver and Cold creeks, get runs
of stray steelhead. While biologists
have noted a small amount of natu-
ral reproduction, it varies greatly
from year-to-year. It is too low and
erratic to support the quality fishery
that has been developed and that
anglers have come to expect. Good
quantities of cold, spring water and
adequate juvenile trout habitat are
also rare in NE Ohios Lake Erie
tributaries. The fantastic fishing has
been maintained by annual stocking
and by the practice of most anglers
to catch and release.
Mainstem rivers and tribs east
of Cleveland have slightly below
average flows and are still declin-
ing; rivers from Cleveland west are
still showing slightly above average
flows and are slowly declining. Most
streams are clear to stained with
some leaf litter and tree debris still
possible from the big storm earlier
this fall. Fishing conditions overall
should remain very good through
the Thanksgiving week and week-
end. Steelhead are well-distributed
throughout the stream reaches;
anglers are using eggs, jigs tipped
with maggots, minnows, or small
spinners. Fly-fishers are using
streamers, egg patterns including
sucker spawn, woolly buggers and
other nymphs. ... Dont forget the
daily bag limit of 2 steelhead trout
and salmon in the aggregate through
May 15. ... There are many public
access areas on Ohio streams. If
you are on private property, you
must have landowner permission;
dont trespass. Private landowners
have the right to restrict access
on their property. In Ohio, you can
gain access to the stream from
public access points but the pri-
vate land ownership includes their
land under the stream. The streams
listed above are navigable, meaning
you can float a boat through them
to fish; however, you cannot get out
of your boat and stand on private
property to fish unless you have
the landowners permission. ... The
water temperature is 44 degrees
off of Toledo and 48 degrees off of
Cleveland, according to the near-
shore marine forecast. ... Anglers
are encouraged to always wear a
U.S. Coast Guard-approved per-
sonal flotation device while boating.
New rules for fish posses-
sion, hunting preserves
The Ohio Wildlife Council passed
rules to modify the fish filet rule and
other fish and wildlife rules.
Fillets must be kept whole until
an angler reaches his or her perma-
nent residence or until the fish are
prepared for immediate consump-
tion. There will be no requirement to
keep skin on the fillets. This rule will
not apply to anglers with a receipt
from a fish cleaning house or char-
ter captain, which states the date,
number and species of fish.
Rules encompassing wild ani-
mal hunting preserves, commercial
bird shooting preserves and wild
cervids were passed to align with
recently enacted legislation (House
Bill 389). The Ohio Wildlife Council
also passed rules to define the geo-
graphical limits on reservoirs and
bag limits of selected fish species.
For the complete list of rules, go to
See WILDLIFE, page 7
One didnt need to look far to
find out who won the Jefferson
at Fort Recovery girls basket-
ball opener Friday night at Fort
Site Fieldhouse.
Shooting told the entire
story: the Lady Indians were
27-of-54 (4-of-8 from down-
town) for 54 percent and the
Lady Wildcats were a mis-
erable 8-of-45 (0-of-10 long
range) for 17.8 percent.
It all added up to a 62-25
blowout for the Tribe.
I didnt think we shot that
well. Its all about confidence
right now and learning how
to play at the varsity level;
for many of these girls, it is
the first time, Jefferson men-
tor Dave Hoffman explained.
At times, we were tentative
shooting the ball, like we didnt
want to shoot. Other times, we
were too aggressive and fast.
Going faster is not always the
Indian coach Doug Bihn
was pleased with his teams
We only have two girls
back from last year but we have
expectations of a good year all
the time. I was pleased with
how we came out tonight for
the opener, he added. Sure,
we made mistakes but that is
going to happen in your first
game with jitters and such. I
really like how we moved the
ball and got good shots. Good
shooting overcomes a lot of
sins. We just need to build from
Both teams struggled against
the others defense at the outset
in whatever form it took, both
full- and half-court. They com-
bined for 17 turnovers nine
for the Red and White and
totaled 47 for the game (24 by
the visitors). However, while
the Tribe shot well when they
did get looks at the basket
7-of-11 Delphos was as cold
as the now-wintry weather out-
side 3-of-14. A 3-ball
by Recoverys Jackie
Fullenkamp (12 mark-
ers, 8 boards, 4 thefts)
shortly into the game
gave them a lead they
never gave up. With five
players scoring at least a bas-
ket, the Indians steadily built
a 15-6 edge on a putback by
Tori Lennartz (15 counters, 7
assists, 6 boards, 5 steals) with
8.0 ticks on the clock.
If the first period wasnt
exactly torrid for the visitors,
the second quarter was not
much better 2-of-9. The
Indians had six players get at
least two points in the canto,
led by the six of Lennartz, in
connecting on 9-of-14 field-
ers. Their largest lead of the
half was the halftime spread of
38-11 as Cassidy Rammel hit
two free throws with 42.7 ticks
on the board.
The third stanza was not
much better for the Red and
White as they continued to
struggle from the floor, knock-
ing down an even chillier 2-of-
12. As well, the one thing they
did do pretty well all night
was get to the line but they
had issues there as well, hitting
9-of-20 (45%) to 3-of-10 for the
hosts (30%). Caley Schoenherr
tacked on six points to pace the
hosts 9-of-18 from the floor
as they erected their largest
lead of the night to that point,
57-18, on a foul-line-throw
banker by Schoenherr with 3-1
ticks on the clock.
All that was left in the fourth
was to figure out the final mar-
gin, with the Red and White
outscoring their hosts
Junior Gabrielle
Pimpas led the
Delphos effort with
seven points and three
assists, while junior
Hannah Sensibaugh, playing
her first game since knee sur-
gery in the middle of last sea-
son, had six boards, five steals
and four markers. Sophomore
Shelby Koenig at 6-1
had five boards as the visitors
were outrebounded 41-25 (10-
10 offensively). Jefferson was
guilty of nine fouls and hit the
road to Antwerp for a 6 p.m.
junior varsity start tonight.
We are a work in prog-
ress and tonight it showed,
Hoffman added. We are strug-
gling with numbers and we
have to play some girls at varsi-
ty that maybe arent quite ready
and play them more minutes.
We just have to progress from
here and get better every day.
Again, its a matter of confi-
Fort Recovery received six
dimes from Kelsey Fiely. They
visit St. Marys tonight.
The Indians also won the JV
matchup 27-14.

VAN WERT - The Van
Wert Lady Cougars took on the
Ottoville Lady Green at Van
Wert High School in the sec-
ond game of the McDonalds
Tip-off Tournament, with
the Lady Green beating the
Cougars 56-27 to advance
to the championship game
Ottoville was led by 6-2
senior center Abby Siefker
with a game-high 26 points,
whereas the Cougars were
led by junior guard Cheyenne
Handy with nine points off the
bench. All of Handys points
came in the second half.
The Lady Green were the
first to score when Rachel
Beining got fouled and made
the front end of two foul shots.
Siefker grabbed the miss on
the second foul shot and put
it back up to give Ottoville a
3-0 lead. Van Wert countered
with an Erin Morrow layup.
Siefker and Beining controlled
the low block for much of the
game, which allowed the Lady
Green to take a 9-4 lead at the
end of the first quarter.
The second quarter was
more of the same as Siefker
scored three straight baskets
to extend the Ottoville lead
to 15-4. The Cougars ended
the Ottoville run when Alexis
Dowdy made a layup to make
the score 19-4 Lady Green. A
Morrow free throw with just
seconds left on the clock cut
into the Ottoville lead and
made the score at the end of
the first half 25-7 in favor of
the Lady Green.
Van Wert was bothered
by the Lady Green full-court
press for much of the first
half, as the Cougars only
got off 17 shots compared to
Ottovilles 27.
Siefker and Beining started
the second half hot again as
they scored six straight points
to increase the Ottoville lead.
Van Wert, again, got a bas-
ket from Dowdy to end the
Lady Green run. After Handy
went coast-to-coast and made
the layup, she promptly stole
the ball from Ottoville and
made a quick layup to give the
Cougars a quick four points
and cut Ottovilles lead to
37-13. Two Claire Butler free
throws for Van Wert brought
the score to 43-15, Lady
Green, at the end of the third
The closest the Lady
Cougars could get in the
fourth period was 47-22.
With the victory, Ottoville
will take on the Crestview
Lady Knights tonight in
the championship game at
7:30 p.m. With the loss, the
Cougars get the Wayne Trace
Raiders in the first game at 6
As a team, were looking
to go inside first and then if
we cant get inside, we have
plenty of shooters you will see
through this year. If you want
to pack into our post play-
ers, we will pop it out to our
shooters and let them make
shots, said Ottoville coach
David Kleman. I thought we
came out a little sloppy; we
were getting such good shots
(that we were) in a hurry to
finish them; we were just a
little off and we were not fin-
ishing those shots.
Van Wert coach Lance
Moonshower was not happy
with his units first-half per-
(Im a) little disappointed
with our effort in the first half;
we just look like we couldnt
handle the pressure whatso-
ever. We were not executing
our game plan and we let them
control the pace of the game.
We looked a little nervous
a little scared; it just went
downhill fast, Moonshower

Violates the Law
Every time a cigar dealer
takes a handful of cigars from
a box and spreads them out
on top of the showcase for the
purchaser to select from, he
violates one of the most strin-
gent laws of the United States.
The international revenue laws
has a rigid provision to the
effect that a retailer must not
take cigars from the box after it
has been packed and stamped.
He should always hand out the
box to his customers and let
them select from it.

time, when one of the priests
in Toledo put the bug in him
to enter the priesthood. The
thought had crossed his mind,
since he wasnt married, so
the rest is history. He entered
the seminary at Mount Saint
Marys in Cincinnati in 1972
and was ordained in 1976.
One of his assignments
was at LCC in Lima, serving
as principal. He said he was
the last priest to serve under
Father Herr.
Father John said he likes
his pastoral assignment at
Ottoville and the people of
the area. He is also a member
of the VFW. Father John said
he often has visitors, who are
very impressed with the par-
ish and the area.
Ralph Hoehn of Delphos
(born in Ottoville) is a
member of the Greatest
Generation. He was awarded
the Distinguished Flying Cross
for his multiple bombing raids
over Europe but didnt receive
it until June of 2010.
Hoehn volunteered for ser-
vice in October of 1941. He
went to basic training the fol-
lowing February. As an avia-
tion cadet, he went through
multiple rounds of training in
the United States Army Air
Force, including pilot training
under Delphos resident Bob
The training was exten-
sive and prepared him to fly
B-24 bombers over Nazi-
occupied France. In May,
1944, he boarded a train
for New England, travel-
ing through Delphos. Along
with 10,000 other airmen,
he sailed to England on the
New Amsterdam. Hoehn was
assigned to a bomber group sta-
tion at Metfield, England, and
flew 35 missions over France.
Of those, the most memorable
one took place just after Allied
Forces stormed the beaches
of Normandy. The sky over
France was overcast on the
22nd of July, 1944 so orders
to drop were reeled in. Due
to miscommunication, some
bombed anyhow. They were

flying very low and finally
pulled up, without dropping
our bombs. The plane next to
him was shot down and the
men taken prisoner until the
end of the war. Hoehns air-
craft was damaged.
My plane got shot up pret-
ty bad and I didnt have any
navigation system to get back.
We didnt drop our bombs,
so I went back across the
channel toward home and I
started losing oil pressure on
three engines, Hoehn said.
I wanted to drop my bombs
but they said too many of our
ships were in the channel. It
was overcast and we had to go
through 10,000 feet of clouds
to get to our base. A fighter
pilot said you stay on my
wing and Ill take you down,
so I did that and when I saw
the ground, all I had to do
was drop the throttle and put
her down. That was about the
scariest mission I had.
Hoehn returned to the
United States just after the
Battle of the Bulge. That was
in 1944 and he was sent to
California for training to fly
B-29s when the war ended.

ter his father, Henry Hank

War I.

June 16, 1918
My dear Folks: How are
you? I am just fine and hope
the same to you. Well, I sup-
pose you were out automo-
bile-riding or having some
kind of a good time today.
It surely has been a nice day
here today. If it would be that
nice Sunday in the States, Id
have a little bit of Sunday,
too. But where I am now, its
work everyday and I havent
had a chance to go to church
anymore since Palm Sunday.
I guess you are pretty busy by
this time. Its just about clover
hay making time now and it
is corn-plowing, too, at the
same time. Were surely hav-
ing nice weather here, now.
For about two months now,
it has been nice and sunshin-
ey every day. At first when
we got here it rained every
day, but that was early in the
spring, and then it is raining in
the States, too. I hope you got
my other letters that I wrote
to you. I am just wondering
if they passed the censor or
not. Some of the boys said
their folks wrote and said that
about all that was left of their
letters was their names and
address. Well if my letters
got thru at all I am sure you
have the first one by this time.
The first one I wrote from the
Supply Company was about
the 16th of April. I havent
had any letters yet, but I am
in hopes that I will get one
pretty soon. I am in hopes that
this war will be over and we
can all be back home soon.
But still we can never tell how
long it will last. Well, dont
worry about me. I am alright
and I hope that some day, I
can come back again and then
I wont have to write. I was
just telling one of the boys
this morning I wish I could
be home now. Everyone is
just fine this time of the year
at home. This is about clover
hay-making time now and that
would be just sport for me to
get in back of the hay-loader
and work in the hay again.
Well, lets hope that by next
year, Ill be at it again. This
war cant last forever, that is
sure. Its funny, I dream about
home almost every night and
I hope my dreams will come
true before long. I havent had
any letters from home yet. I
havent had any mail at all,
since the middle of April. I
have a notion to subscribe to
a newspaper over here so that
Ill have a little something
to read. I never got a one
of those Heralds after I left
Camp Sherman. Well, this is
enough for this time. I am
hoping this will reach you all
in the best of health and spirits
as it leaves me, and dont for-
get to write.
I remain as ever, Henry.
Donald Kaverman and three
of his neighborhood friends
were all drafted into the Army
about the same time Don and
two others were sent to Korea,
while Louis Kaverman was
sent to Germany. Don said it
took 16 days to go over and 14
days returning home. He said
on the way over, he wondered
if he would be coming back.
Thankfully he did.
Don was a quartermaster,
serving at the Shower Point,
where he was in charge of
checking the water tem-
perature and providing sol-
diers with clean clothes after
returning from the front and
showering. He said he met his
next door (home) neighbor
over there. Bill Hemker was
an electrician in Saigon.
His friend, Larry Luersman
had the job of driving the
commanding officer around
in a Jeep, but they didnt meet
while in Korea. Don men-
tioned how the Koreans ate
dried up dead fish. Then he
said it was a wonderful feeling
to come back to the USA and
pass under the Golden Gate
Bridge and step foot on good
American soil once again.
The four of them always take
part in the honor guard at the
funerals of veterans.
Many veterans had many
stories to tell.
The Bohnlein Family from
Delphos had seven boys in
World War II. They were:
Robert, George, Frank, Joe,
John, Louis and Tom. Tom
did not return; he was killed
at the Battle of Attu, in the
Aleutian Islands.
The four Berelsman
Brothers, from Fort Jennings
were all in World War II.
They were Linus, Norbert,
Albert and Hubert.
Hubert was killed in the
service to his country.

Association, with the finan-
cial help of the Fort Jennings

The 2012 Lake Erie Trawl
Eric Weimer, Fisheries
August is an important month
on Lake Erie for the division. In
August, a trawl survey is used to
anticipate the future population size
of Lake Erie fish, especially walleye
and yellow perch. Why not use the
trawl data from previous months?
While adult fish are easily caught in
May, June and July trawls, catches
of spring-hatched fish during these
months arent reliable. By August,
these age-0 fish have grown large
enough to be captured in the trawl;
they are too big to slip through
the mesh of the net. In addition,
August trawl data is more reliable
for forecasting fish populations. By
then, fish hatched earlier in the year
have run the survival gauntlet and
are less susceptible to changes
in weather, water temperature,
and food availability. This reliabil-
ity allows biologists to use August
trawl data from adult, yearling and
age-0 fish to project future popula-
tion sizes and make meaningful
comparisons to previous years.
2012 marks the 43rd year of
the western basin survey and 22nd
year of the central basin survey.
The western basin is surveyed at 41
sites between the Michigan border
and Huron, Ohio, while the central
basin survey consists of 57 sites
from Huron to the Pennsylvania
border. One 10-minute tow of the
trawl is made along the bottom at
each site and the area sampled and
the numbers of fish captured are
recorded from each tow. The same
trawls and sites are used each
year to allow comparisons from
one year to the next. Following the
survey, results are standardized to
the number of fish captured per
hectare (1 hectare equals about 2
1/2 acres).
In the western basin, the 2012
survey resulted in more age-0 wall-
eye and age-0 yellow perch than
in the 2011 but the numbers of
both species were well below the
long-term average for the survey.
Abundances of yearling and adult
yellow perch were both below aver-
age as well. Also noteworthy, age-0
emerald shiners, age-1 and older
emerald shiners, age-0 and age-1
white perch abundances were at or
near all-time highs.
In the central basin, the survey
is split into two halves; a west-cen-
tral survey conducted from Huron
to Fairport Harbor and an east-cen-
tral basin survey conducted from
Fairport Harbor to the Pennsylvania
border. Few age-0 walleye are col-
lected in central basin surveys as
most walleye spawning takes place
in the shallower, warmer waters of
the western basin. However, yellow
perch data from the central basin
surveys are important for manag-
ing this species. In 2012, age-0
and yearling yellow perch numbers
were below average in both halves
of the central basin, but catches of
adult yellow perch were average
in the west-central and well above
average in the east-central (Figure
2). Also of note, catches of age-0
white bass, age-0 white perch, and
age-0 emerald shiners were high in
2012, similar to the western basin.
During the months ahead,
results from Ohio surveys will be
combined with surveys conducted
in Ontario, Michigan, Pennsylvania
and New York to estimate popu-
lation sizes and determine how
many walleye and yellow perch can
safely be harvested from Lake Erie.
This harvestable portion is called
the Total Allowable Catch (TAC);
when the TAC is finalized, each
state and province is issued their
slice of the pie. In Ohio, the daily
bag limits are set for walleye and
yellow perch based on our portion
of the TAC. The TAC is announced
every March at the Lake Erie
Committee meeting, which is why
Ohio bag limit changes on Lake
Erie dont become effective until
May 1st each year.
We are still learning what makes
a strong or a weak walleye or yel-
low perch hatch.
Controlled Waterfowl Hunts
Waterfowl season is well under-
way in Ohio, with many of the
zones in between spits right now.
For hunters who are still looking for
some great places to hunt, several
wildlife areas offer daily drawings
for controlled waterfowl hunting
units. The units are located in con-
trolled access areas, so hunters
selected for the units can hunt free
from interference for the duration
of their permit. In addition, limited
access allows managers to regu-
late the hunting pressure through-
out the season, which reduces the
likelihood that units become over-
These drawings are held on
Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays
and Saturdays throughout water-
fowl season at Magee Marsh,
Pickerel Creek and Killdeer Plains.
Each areas rules and procedures
are slightly different, so hunters
need to check out additional details
located at, under the
Controlled Hunts link in the Hunting
& Trapping tab, current special
hunting opportunities, Northwest
Ohio. However, in general, hunters
need to arrive before the draw-
ing time to register and obtain a
number. At the drawing time, num-
bers will be drawn out, one at a
time. As a number is drawn, the
hunting party with that registration
number will be asked which one of
the available units they would like
to choose. The process continues
until all available units or hunting
parties have been selected. Any
remaining permits are made avail-
able through a self-serve process.
This gives any hunter who cant
make the scheduled drawing the
potential to participate.
After the drawing, hunters are
free to proceed to their designated
unit. They are allowed to hunt any-
where within their section. At the
conclusion of the hunt, hunters are
required to return the permits with
their harvest information filled out.
This data is vital for area managers
and helps them regulate hunting
pressure in the units.
The DOW conducts controlled
waterfowl hunts on restricted
access areas throughout the state.
Because of the limited access
and intensive management, these
hunts provide a unique and excel-
lent experience that hunters would
not otherwise get to enjoy.

St. Johns came up short
against New Knoxville
Friday night in the open-
er of the annual Bath
Kewpee Tip-Off Classic
at The Bathtub of Bath
High School.
The Lady Rangers
edged out the Lady Blue
Jays 37-34.
The third quarter was
the difference in the
ball game between the
two Midwest Athletic
Conference combatants,
though this was a non-
league affair. The score
from the first half was
20-all. The Lady Rangers
struck first 46 seconds into
the half with pair of foul
shots from Rachel Leffel.
Katie Vorst answered for
the Jays with a pair of her
own foul shots with 5:22
left in the quarter. New
Knoxvilles Paige Lehman
nailed a layup at the 3:34
mark and that 2-point
edge stood until only 25
seconds remained in the
quarter as Meg Reineke
slid in for a layup, putting
the Lady Rangers up by
26-22. The Jays closed out
the quarter with Jessica
Recker hitting the front
end of two from the char-
ity stripe for a 26-23 New
Knoxville lead.
This was the lowest
scoring quarter in the
game but the three points
that the Rangers gained
on the Jays was the differ-
ence in the end.
New Knoxvi l l e
increased their pressure
in the third quarter,
St. Johns coach Dan
Grothouse opined. We
were not able to get into
the same starting position
as in the first and second
quarters. They put more
pressure on our
The fourth
quarter started
out looking
good for the
Jays. Recker
knocked out a
3-pointer from
the right wing
to get things
started, tying
the game 54 seconds into
the quarter. Erica Saine
put her two points worth
in from the foul line to put
the Jays up by two. Lady
Ranger Haley Horstman
hit a 3-point shot from
the left wing to give
Knoxville a 1-point edge.
Tara Vorst got her two
points in on the night with
4:55 left to put the Jays
back up for the final time
of the night, 30-29. The
best they could do from
there was tie but the Lady
Rangers kept the carrot
just out in front the rest of
the game. Katie Vorst got
the last points of the night
for the Jays from the char-
ity stripe, connecting on
both shots and pulling the
Jays within one with 31.8
seconds left.
The Jays had to foul to
get back in the game but
since they were stingy on
fouls in the second half,
they had to foul three times
to put New Knoxville at
the foul line with 4.7 sec-
onds left. Horstman sank
both ends of the bonus to
give her 20 points on the
night and the 3-point lead
for the Rangers. St. Johns
had a chance to tie
it up but had to
go the full length
and hit a 3-point
shot for this to
happen. They fell
short, turning the
ball back to the
Rangers to end
the game.
We are a
young team and I
knew it would be a little
bit of trouble but you have
to give St. Johns credit
with a good game plan,
New Knoxville Coach
Tim Hegemier relayed.
The first quarter looked
like the Jays might just
pull slowly away from
the Rangers on the night.
They took the lead and
kept it the whole quar-
ter. The Jays even got
up by six points at 2:54
with the score 13-7. New
Knoxville started to chip
away and pulled to within
two points at the end of
the quarter, 15-13.
We are not real con-
fident yet with the ball
in our hands, Grothouse
added. We are still learn-
ing and growing as a team.
We did play good defense
and just have to get better
on the offensive end.
The second quarter saw
the Jays hold on to their
lead, only allowing two
ties, until 1:50 was left in
the half. Horstman once
again came through for
the Rangers, hitting one of
her three 3-point shots to
take the lead for the first
time at 20-19. The Jays
Rebekah Fischer tied it,
getting her only point on
the night from the free-
throw line with 42.2 sec-
onds left before heading to
the locker room at 20-all.
Haley is just to good
of a player not to shoot,
Hegemier added. I asked
her in the third quarter
how many shots have you
taken and she said zero. I
said you have to shoot the
St. Johns opens 0-1
and will play Elida 6 p.m.
tonight in the consolation
bracket. New Knoxville
(1-0) will play Bath in the
finals at 7:30 p.m.

Tomorrows Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
It behooves you in the year
ahead to make a point to increase
the number of your work-related
acquaintances. Friends you make in
the business world are likely to be
key to your success.
Dec. 21) -- If you ignore your
common sense, you could easily
reward someone you like but
whos undeserving, while barely
acknowledging the person who did
the real work.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- Youll function much better in an
important negotiation when you have
time to think things through. Be sure
you know what youre doing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) -- Even though youre often a
creative thinker, you might not use
this marvelous quality unless youre
pushed into a corner. Rely on it if you
want to get ahead of the game.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --
Although your chances of acquisition
are extremely high, so are your
probabilities for misusing that gain.
Dont let easy come, easy go be the
axiom you live by.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- Something youve been hoping
to accomplish can be achieved,
provided you dont allow negative
thinkers to dissuade you from
thinking otherwise. Keep your eye
and mind on the positive.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It
behooves you to follow your instincts
when they urge you to remain
positive through difficult conditions.
You could miss out on some good
opportunities if you dont.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
-- Avoid an endeavor with a close
friend if it involves commercialism.
Follow the wise notion that business
and pleasure usually mix like oil and
CANCER (June 21-July 22) --
Dont be reluctant to ride the coattails
of someone whom you recently went
out of your way to help. The receiving
party will want to return the favor.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When
a confidante goes out of his or her
way to offer you advice based on
experience, listen attentively and
dont dismiss it too quickly. Take
advantage of lessons learned.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) --
Be careful not to stir the waters in a
partnership arrangement when your
counterpart has everything running
smoothly, even if he or she is doing
things differently from how you
would have done them.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be
supportive of your mate when she or
he is striving to do something that
would be of mutual benefit. Your
encouragement could be the single
factor that makes it work.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) --
If you have to contend with a similar
situation to one that didnt work out
because the benefits werent being
equally distributed, apply what you
learned from your experience.
Much-needed improvements
in your financial affairs could be in
the offing during coming months.
Although the upswing might be a bit
slow to start, once you get it on track,
itll gain the desired momentum.
21) -- Establish an agenda and do
your best to adhere to it. Unless you
put some kind of plan together, you
could get into trouble when trying to
cut corners.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- While in your presence, a couple
of friends might put down an absent
friend. Under no circumstances
should you contribute to the bash-
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) -- Details could be of unusual
importance when it comes to your big
objectives. A failure to read the fine
print and double-check everything
could deprive you of the success you
usually enjoy.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --
There are very few things that would
invite as many complications as
would you being a copycat. Methods
that worked well for another might
cause you big trouble, and damage
your reputation to boot.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- Guard against temptation to
spend money on something that has
previously proven to be wasteful.
Dont be misled twice -- you cant
afford it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) --
Although you might feel impelled to
make a difficult decision, dont do so
impulsively. Take plenty of time to
study the matter first, weighing all of
your alternatives.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
-- A poor attitude will work to your
detriment if youre not careful. You
could easily make a problematical
assignment even more difficult than
it already is.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-- Be extremely careful not to come
on too strong in your business and
personal matters. Even if your input
is well intended, your associates
might feel youre trying to dominate
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your
respect for authority figures could
appear to be nonexistent if youre not
careful. Be as diplomatic as possible
when dealing with persons who have
a lot of clout.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If
someone should ask you to deliver a
message, take precautions and write
it down. Your memory might not be
up to its usual strength, and you may
lose something in translation.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
Dont trust important instructions to
your memory. Your recall might not
be as flawless as you think, and if not,
you could land in a lot of trouble.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) --
Cooperativeness is always important,
but its especially essential in your
current one-on-one relationships.
If you lack the ability to work well
with others, it could cause needless

the museum each year so that
others may enjoy it.
Another item which has
a long history is the feather
tree, which is usually made
out of green-dyed goose
feathers. The trunk of the
tree was a plain wooden rod
and the branches were made
of stiff wire that had feath-
ers wrapped around them.
Red berries or candle hold-
ers were placed at the ends
of the branches. Because of
the danger of candles, these
trees had more space between
their branches than todays
Christmas trees. One visitor
at the museum commented
that it looked like a Charlie
Brown tree.
The earliest feather trees
in America were brought by
German immigrants, so it is
not surprising that the muse-
um has one in its possession.
And what would Christmas
be without a sleigh? The one
at the museum is a one-horse
open sleigh donated by the
families of Richard Kimmet
and Arthur Hoersten. This
style of sleigh is also known
as a cutter because it is
lightweight, has gracefully-
curved runners and a decora-
tive body and usually holds
only two people.
On the second floor
amongst the military display
is the POW/MIA tree and
more are nestled in between
the history of the city.
Passersby in the evening

Lady Tree in the museums
display window.
The tree festival will be
open for Hometown Christmas
on Nov. 30 and officially
opens from 1-4 p.m. every
Saturday and Sunday and 6-8
p.m. every Friday Dec. 1-23.

The Associated Press
Strip Israeli troops fired
on Gazans surging toward
Israels border fence Friday,
killing one person but leav-
ing intact the fragile two-day-
old cease-fire between Hamas
and the Jewish state.
The truce, which calls for
an end to Gaza rocket fire on
Israel and Israeli airstrikes on
Gaza, came after eight days
of cross-border fighting, the
bloodiest between Israel and
Hamas in four years.
In a letter to the U.N.
Security Council, the
Palestinian U.N. observer
Riyad Mansour called the
situation in Gaza extreme-
ly fragile and said Israels
cease-fire violations and other
illegal actions risk undermin-
ing the calm that was just
Hundreds of Palestinians
approached the border fence
Friday in several locations in
southern Gaza, testing expec-
tations Israel would no lon-
ger enforce a 300-meter-wide
(300-yard-wide) no-go zone
on the Palestinian side of the
fence that was meant to pre-
vent infiltrations into Israel.
In the past, Israeli soldiers
routinely opened fire on those
who crossed into the zone.
In one incident captured by
Associated Press video, sever-
al dozen Palestinians, most of
them young men, approached
the fence, coming close to a
group of Israeli soldiers stand-
ing on the other side.
Some Palestinians briefly
talked to the soldiers, while
others appeared to be taunting
them with chants of God is
Great and Morsi, Morsi, in
praise of Egyptian President
Mohammed Morsi, whose
mediation led to the truce.
At one point, a soldier
shouted in Hebrew, Go
there, before I shoot you,
and pointed away from the
fence, toward Gaza. The sol-
dier then dropped to one knee,
assuming a firing position.
Eventually, a burst of auto-
matic fire was heard, but it
was not clear whether any of
the casualties were from this
Gaza health official Ashraf
al-Kidra said a 20-year-old
man was killed and 19 people
were wounded by Israeli fire
near the border.
Mansour, the Palestinian
U.N. observer, said Israeli
forces fatally shot Anwar
Abdulhadi Qudaih in the head
and injured at least 19 other
Palestinian civilians in a bor-
der area east of Khan Younis.
During the incidents,
Hamas security tried to defuse
the situation and keep the
crowds away from the fence.
Moussa Abu Marzouk,
a top Hamas official at the
ongoing negotiations in Cairo,
told The Associated Press that
the violence would have no
effect on the ceasefire.
The crowds were mainly
made up of young men but
also included farmers hoping
to once again farm lands in
the buffer zone. Speaking by
phone from the buffer zone,
19-year-old Ali Abu Taimah
said he and his father were
checking three acres of family
land that have been fallow for
several years.
When we go to our land,
we are telling the occupation
(Israel) that we are not afraid
at all, he said.
Israels military said rough-
ly 300 Palestinians approached
the security fence at different
points, tried to damage it and
cross into Israel. Soldiers fired
warning shots in the air, but
after the Palestinians refused
to move back, troops fired at
their legs, the military said.
A Palestinian infiltrated into
Israel during the unrest, but
was returned to Gaza, it said.
The truce allowed both
Hamas and Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
to step back from the brink of
a full-fledged war. Over eight
days, Israels aircraft carried
out some 1,500 strikes on
Hamas-linked targets, while
Gaza fighters fired roughly
the same number of rockets
at Israel.
The fighting killed 166
Palestinians, including scores
of civilians, and six Israelis.
Mansour, the Palestinian U.N.
envoy, said more than 1,230
Palestinians were injured, pre-
dominantly women and chil-
In Cairo, Egypt is hosting
separate talks with Israeli and
Hamas envoys on the next
phase of the cease-fire a
new border deal for block-
aded Gaza. Hamas demands
an end to border restrictions,
while Israel insists Hamas halt
weapons smuggling to Gaza.
Mansour also accused
Israel of intensifying its
use of excessive and lethal
force against Palestinian
civilians in the West Bank
and East Jerusalem in recent
days and of arresting at least
230 Palestinian civilians since
the Gaza fighting began,
including several members
of the Palestinian Legislative
Council who were detained at
dawn Friday.
