Playing Hardball Against ALS expands
By Monica Gerdeman Sentinel Correspondent FORT JENNINGS — The Playing Hardball Against ALS (PHAALS) Foundation in Fort Jennings has taken a giant step toward success. With the recent expansion into the college world, the list of events continues to grow. “We are excited to be expanding into the college level for events with ONU and Defiance College becoming host schools. This will allow us to expand and promote our mission and bring awareness to so many more individuals that may not know about ALS,” said CEO and Founder, Jeff Swick. “ I continue to work hard everyday to promote, improve and strengthen the cause and mission of the PHAALS Foundation.” The goal for the foundation is not to be satisfied with Northwest Ohio,or

Delphos, Ohio when the first PHAALS event was held. Both Leipsic and Fort Jennings are the homes of legands Gene “Yogi” VonLemdon and Dan “Orsan” Mangas. Those two high school baseball teams took Fort Jennings field in honor of the two men. “With both of our ‘Founding Fathers’ having passed away less than eight months after the event, now more than ever we all need to recognize what this disease is. We cannot wait until tomorrow; we have to act now. Every 90 seconds, someone is diagnosed and every 90 seconds someone else dies from this horrible illness. Please come join the fight this coming April,” Swick finished. For a complete list of events and more information about the PHAALS Foundation, visit The PHAALS Foundation on Facebook, or www.

We are working with individuals on the East Coast to form partnerships with them to support and promote not only the foundation, but awareness and support for all patients and families fighting against Lou Gehrigs,” said Swick. As a non-for-profit, the foundation is to help both victims and families that deal with ALS, as it strikes without much warning at a fast pace. “Our Diamond Dreams Program and the Hall of Fame Legend Scholarship are two of our ways that we will be helping support families battling Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” he said. “We are excited to provide such opportunity and support to all people stricken with ALS.” The seed was planted last April

No Picasso in my attic
I spend some time watching the pawn shows, pickers and Antiques Roadshow. I’m amazed at what people find in their attics, basements and forgotten corners of their homes. I don’t think my home has any such corners and I pretty much know what we have and it isn’t making the cut on Antiques Roadshow any time soon. I can’t help but make the list while I watch. Aunt Gertie’s antique broach she hasn’t worn since she played dress up? It’s now worth a cool $12,000. So sold. That painting Uncle Art left him in the will? An original whosey face from the late 1800s with a price tag of $7,000. Gone. Pocket change. That autographed photo of great-great-grandpa Joe with the letter and other piece of memorabilia? Only worth $400 but hey, it’s great-greatgrandpa Joe’s. You can’t get rid of that. I also enjoy watching the pickers go through barns, warehouses, garages, etc. I like how Danielle always sets it up and they know Mike and Frank are coming and they say they want to sell off some of the clutter but they really don’t. I think some of them just want to be on TV and have people see the cool stuff they have. I also like how they know just where to go to find the good stuff. They walk by two piles, three shelves and zone in on that box in the corner under the rug by the old chest of drawers. Hmmm. What’s inside here?

Then I see the guys talking about what they bought and how much they’re going to sell it for. Wow. But wait a minute. Who are they going to sell it to? How do they know someone who wants to buy an old beer sign, a tin toy bear driving a sports car and an old bell off a shrimp boat that sank in the Mississippi River in 1928? Turns out they don’t. It’s all online and you can buy it now. Pop goes the bubble. It’s still fun watching them. That’s why they’re still on. We are watching. So back to my woefully bare attic and pathetically empty basement. I doubt I’ll be pulling out anything remotely resembling something worth pawning or picking for that matter. So I’ll watch Mike and Frank and my other guys on the History Channel and the appraisers on PBS cuz there’s no old doodad worth thousands in my basement or garage and no Picasso in my attic. There’s just my stuff. And I like it.

down on gun sales and bans on assault rifles. In Montpelier, school officials began reviewing security plans after Newtown and decided teachers should not be armed because their first priority in an emergency should be locking doors and protecting students, Grime said. The school already has security cameras and locked doors, and requires visitors to be buzzed into the front entrance. The proposal was not announced until just before the board voted unanimously Wednesday to arm a select group of employees after consulting with the local police chief and attorneys who reviewed Ohio’s concealed carry law. The law

The government doesn’t keep a running tally of adult deaths from the flu, but estimates that it kills about 24,000 people in an average year. Nationally, 20 children have died from the flu this season. Flu vaccinations are recommended for everyone 6 months or older. Since the swine flu epidemic in 2009, vaccination rates have increased in the U.S., but more than half of Americans haven’t gotten this year’s vaccine. Nearly 130 million doses of flu vaccine were distributed this year, and at least 112 million have been used. Vaccine is still available, but supplies may have run low in some locations, officials said. To find a shot, “you may have to call a couple places,” said Dr. Patricia Quinlisk, who tracks the flu in Iowa. In midtown Manhattan, Hyrmete Sciuto got a flu shot Friday at a drugstore. She skipped it in recent years, but news reports about the flu this week worried her. During her commute from Edgewater, N.J., by ferry and bus, “I have people coughing in my face,” she said. “I didn’t want to risk it this year.” The vaccine is no guarantee, though, that you won’t get sick. On Friday, CDC officials said a recent study of more than 1,100 people has concluded the current flu vaccine is 62 percent effective. That means the average vaccinated person is 62 percent less likely to get a case of flu that sends them to the doctor, compared to people who don’t get the vaccine. That’s in line with other years. The vaccine is reformulated annually, and this year’s is a good match to the viruses going around. The flu’s early arrival coincided with spikes in flulike illnesses caused by other bugs, including a new norovirus that causes vomiting and diarrhea, or what is commonly known as “stomach flu.” Those illnesses likely are part of the heavy traffic in hospital and clinic waiting rooms, CDC officials said.
prohibits guns in schools except in a few cases, and allows education boards to authorize someone to carry a gun inside schools. No members of the public spoke out on the measure at the meeting, board President Larry Martin told the Blade. Grime said three people attended. A letter was sent out to parents after the vote. Only three complained, while close to 150 called or sent emails supporting the idea in Montpelier, a remote city of about 4,000 residents along Interstate 80 near the convergence of Ohio, Michigan and Indiana. “It’s a place where people hold the Second Amendment close to their hearts,” the superintendent said.

The Herald –3


On the banks of yesteryear ...
One hundred years ago, John Wahmhoff, owner of the Pioneer Drug Store in Delphos, began collecting historical artifacts from people. A look at some of these first items gives us insight into what the people at that time thought was worthy of keeping to show future generations. Fortunately, Wahmhoff archived everything by the year it was received and the museum still has many of the relics donated in 1913. Lives of the early settlers were remembered by items such as a wolf trap donated by Matt Fornefeld. The last wolf in Ohio was supposedly killed in 1842 but there are stories of people seeing them later than this. A baby oxen yoke was donated by J. Phillips. The animals had to be trained to pull heavy loads from an early age. Before the threshing machine and later the combine, grains had to be cut by hand and then “flailed” to beat the seeds out of the oats and wheat. J.W. Clapper donated a flail so that future generations could see what one looked like and how it was used. And on the domestic side there is a flax reel that was already over 200 years old when donated by Miss Mary Kuntz in 1913. This was also called a yarn skein winder because by turning the wheel and winding the flax or yarn over and around the wooden dowels, skeins were formed. A very heavy, long-handled waffle iron to use in a fireplace was donated by H.C. Raabe, and B. Lindemann offered a sausage stuffer which looks a little like a giant cake-decorating tool. The Civil War, fought 50 years earlier, was well represented with a canister ball donated by C.L. Gander and a cannon ball donated by Thomas Rice. D. Bliss made sure future generations would know that Legrand Bliss served in the Civil War by donating Legrand’s discharge paper. Transportation was a very important part of early Delphos history. A coffee mill used on a canal boat was donated by F.L. Klein and a link and pin train coupler, when seen, explains why so many brakemen lost fingers and limbs or their lives before a safety law was passed in 1893. The link and pin as well as a narrow gauge railroad spike were donated by J. Nicholson. These are just a few of the items donated in 1913. What do you have that would reflect the history of Delphos to someone 100 years from now?

It has been nearly a year since my new-found friend, Judy (Metzger) Washbush took my to Tiffin to spend a week-end with the Tiffin Franciscan Sisters (OSF). Judy is a Fort Jennings native, now living in Wisconsin. Judy was a Franciscan for a few years, 1960 to 1970. She entered the community as a sophomore in the Convent High School. After her profession, she took the name Sister Antonius. She is now married and has five grown children. Judy asked me to write an article on how many Franciscan Sisters were in the Recker Book. The book “The Recker Connection in America” was compiled and written by Jeanette Laudick (Mrs. Richard)) of Ottawa. There are currently eight Franciscan “cousins” in the Recker Book. They are: Sister Jacquelyn “Jackie” Doepker, Community Minister (formerly referred to as Mother Superior); Sister Andrea Inkrott, member of council; Sister Carol Inkrott, Pastoral Leader at St. Mary’s Parish in Bluffton, Sister Bernice Hartman, clerical support; Sister Mary Hartman, Hospice LPN; Sister Maurice, for-

Aelker, Sr. Diane Kleman and Sr. Joanne Lammers from Miller City; Sr. Marcille Liebrecht, Sr. Edna Michel and Sr. Margaret Verhoff from Cuba (Ohio); Sr. Edna Ricker, Sr. MaryAnn Lucke, Sr. Jane Schimmoeller and Sr. Carol Pothast from Fort Jennings; Sr. Emma Pothast, Sr. Antonia Rode, Sr. Rita Wienken, Sr. Marietta Kill, Sr. Diane Mueller and Sr. Lucy Bonifas from Landeck; Sr. Yvonne Fischer from Delphos; Sr. Julie Grote from Kalida; Sr. Gemma Fenbert, from Fort Jennings/ Columbus Grove; and Sr. Rosann Morman from Leipsic/New Cleveland. Judy pointed out that this week of Jan. 14-19 is Vocation Awareness Week. The Tiffin Community has two novices, Marcia Boes and Lourdes Toribio. They also had two women to enter the Franciscans and profess their vows during the past year. They are Sister Shirley Shafranek and Sister Lisa Hershiser. The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis had their origin in Tiffin, Ohio in 1869. The Reverend Joseph Louis Bihm was serving as pastor of St. Joseph’s Parish

Three of the “Recker Sisters” are deceased. They are Sister Anthony Krienbrink, 1895 – 1979; Sister Theresa Mass, 1907 – 2004 and Sister Jane Schmenk, 1918 – 2004. Judy Washbush is also among the “cousins” in the Recker Book. Another interesting fact is that the Tiffin Franciscans have a membership of 99 sisters at this time with 26 of them from Putnam County, Landeck and Delphos. They are the following: Sr. Andrea Inkrott, Sr. Carol Inkrott, Sr. Mary Kuhlman, Sr. Linda Scheckelhoff and Sr. Paulette Schroeder from New Cleveland; Sr. Kateri Kaufman, Sr. Rebecca in Tiffin. He had been cherishing the hope of founding a home for destitute orphans. Father Bihm, a native of Bavaria, Germany came to the United States in 1845 at the age of 23. After working several years as a clerk in a dry goods store in Cleveland, he entered St. Mary’s Seminary in that city. He was ordained in 1856 and appointed pastor of the Tiffin Parish. During his pastorate Father Bihm often had the task of finding suitable homes for poor orphans. Some orphans lived in the poorhouses, under poor conditions. In 1866 the Ohio Legislature passed a law authorizing the establishment of county homes for the children. Children were often sent from the cities on “orphan trains.” They were known to have come through this area of Ohio. People would meet the train and some would take a child into their home. It was known that

Obama, Karzai agree to speed military transition in Afghanistan
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Friday they have agreed to speed up slightly the schedule for moving Afghanistan’s security forces into the lead across the country, with U.S. troops shifting fully to a support role. The leaders also said Obama agreed to place battlefield detainees under the control of the Afghan government. The capabilities of the Afghan army are “exceeding initial expectations,” the two said in a joint statement released after their private White House meeting and working lunch and in advance of a joint news conference. As a result, Obama said he acceded to Karzai’s desire to put Afghan forces in the combat lead across his country this spring, rather than wait until summer. In their statement the leaders said they discussed the possibility of a continued U.S. troop presence beyond December 2014, when the U.S. and allied combat mission is to end. But they did not settle on any specifics. The U.S. now has 66,000 troops in Afghanistan. U.S. commanders in Afghanistan have proposed keeping 6,000 to 15,000 U.S. troops after 2014 to continuing pursuing terrorists and training Afghan security forces. But the White House, which tends to favor lower troop levels than the generals do, says Obama would be open to pulling all U.S. forces out of Afghanistan at the end of 2014. “We wouldn’t rule out any option,” Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser, said earlier this week. “We’re not guided by the goal of a certain number of U.S. troops in the coun-

Heading into his second term, Obama is shaking up his national security team, including key players who deal with Karzai and the war.

Blue Jays stay perfect in MAC Thunderbirds rout Wildcats play with 69-62 victory in NWC boys action
By NICK JOHNSON DHI Correspodnent

By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@

DELPHOS — The St. John’s Blue Jays welcomed the Minster Wildcats to “The Vatican” on Friday night for high school boys basketball action. The Blue Jays held off a late rally by the Wildcats to win the contest 69-62 and get a big win in the Midwest Athletic Conference. St. John’s started off hot as Curtis Geise scored 10 of the Blue Jays’ first 14 points as they jumped out to an early 14-8 lead. Minster got two 3-pointers from Adam Niemeyer and Ethan Wolf to cut the Blue Jay lead to 17-14. A late 3-pointer for the Blue Jays from Ryan Koester put the score at the end of the first quarter at 20-14. The Wildcats rode on the back of Wolf to start the second quarter as he score eight points to start the quarter and bring the Wildcats within 28-24. The Blue Jays countered with a 5-point swing of their own as Seth Bockey converted a 3-point play and Geise added a layup to make the score 33-24, St. John’s. Four straight points by the Wildcats — layups from Niemeyer and Devon Poeppelman — to end the second quarter and put the score going into halftime at 37-30, Blue Jays. Both teams continued the highscoring affair in the second half as the Wildcats and Blue Jays traded baskets to start the third quarter. After a Vince Brown 3-pointer cut St. John’s lead to 45-38, the Jays went on an 8-2 run to end the third quarter, getting a 3-point play from Geise and a 3-pointer from Eric Clark to put the score at 53-40 going into the final quarter. Minster wouldn’t go quietly into the night as Wolf and Niemeyer both scored baskets to start the fourth quarter. The Blue Jays countered with four points from Ryan Buescher to push the lead back up to 57-47. The Wildcats got five straight points from Poeppelman, including a 3-point play, to cut the Blue Jay lead to 59-54, which forced them to burn a timeout with 2:43 left in the fourth quarter. With the Blue Jays having lost a 10-point lead and the Wildcats making a fierce comeback, St. John’s stepped to the foul line and sank their foul shots, going 10-13 to close out the game. The Wildcats got a 3-point play from Brandon Hoying to decrease the lead to 63-60. This was the closest Minster would get as the Blue Jays’ good foul shooting and ballhandling allowed them to put the game away and pull out a 7-point victory. The Blue Jays had two players in double figures, including Geise with game-high 27 points

and Clark with 13 points. Minster brought in a more balanced attack as three players dropped double figures, including Niemeyer and Poeppelman both with 18 points and Wolf with 15. “I’m not pleased with giving up 62 points but they have a lot of weapons that they can put on the floor and that can score in a variety of ways. You get Wolf knocking down shots from the perimeter and that makes them really scary,” St. John’s coach Aaron Elwer said. “When they are on like they were tonight, that is a tough team to defend. They were able to beat us over the top, which is our base defense, and they were able to make those shots. Toward the end when they were down, they started to attack the basket and our on-the-ball defense wasn’t great but luckily we were able to knock down some free throws and get the win.” The Blue Jays held their own on the bounds. “We aren’t the big team and you know on Friday nights, there are some disadvantage there and it has to be a 5-person deal on the boards,” Elwer added. “It’s just not about one guy; it has to be a team thing and hopefully with

that, we will be able to counter some of the size we will see on our schedule.” With the win on Friday night, the Blue Jays improve to 7-3 on the year and 3-0 in the MAC. The defeat drops Minster to 7-4 and 1-2 in the MAC. In junior varsity action, Minster defeated St. John’s by a score of 35-23. St. John’s hosts Shawnee 6 p.m. tonight.

DELPHOS — Jefferson head boys basketball coach Marc Smith knew what his Wildcats were up against Friday night as Northwest Conference powerhouse Lima Central Catholic invaded The Stage of Jefferson Middle School. The Thunderbirds didn’t disappoint as their quick and athletic defense forced 28 miscues that led to easy points the other way en route to a 64-30 rout. “They are the better team; they are too quick, fast and athletic for us to match up with at this time. You can do everything right and they’re still too good,” Jefferson head coach Marc Smith began. “Their defense is just so tough and turns you over so quickly. That defense leads to so much of their offense. When they have to set up, you have to pick your poison, they have so many weapons; for us, it’s usually someone you least expect that burns us, like (Xavier) Simpson tonight, who hit three 3s when he hadn’t hit one all year.” LCC coach Frank Kill likes the fact that defense set the tone this night. “We take great pride in our defense; that sets up so much of our offense and gets us easier baskets,” he conceded. “We forced those 28 turnovers and that gets us into transition. I think we played with great effort for 32 minutes, from start to finish and from the top guy to the last guy we put in. We needed to see that.” Those miscues fueled the Thunderbirds (11-1, 4-0 NWC) to shooting 26-of-54 from the floor, including 7-of-19 from deep, for 48.2 percent. Jefferson could not compensate for those errors as they connected on 10-of-33 fielders, 1-of-5 downtown, for 30.3 percent. Junior Martyce Kimbrough (4 assists) scored nine of his 14 markers in the first period to establish the Thunderbirds. Their 1-2-1-1 full-court pressure and man-to-man halfcourt defense forced 10 turnovers against the Wildcats (3-7, 1-2 NWC) and that helped them overcome six miscues of their own (11 for the game). They shot 6-of12 from the field versus the Wildcats’ 4-of-9. Jefferson

Mathias’s buzzer shot sinks Cougars 62-60 By JIM COX DHI Correspondent ELIDA - With the score tied at 60 and the clock ticking down, everybody knew the play was designed to go to Elida junior Dakota Mathias -- and everybody was wrong. Coach Denny Thompson set Mathias up as a decoy to free Ebin Stratton for a lob underneath. Point guard Louis Gray chose not to risk the lob to the open Stratton, however, giving the ball to Mathias, who drilled a buzzer-beating 17-footer from straight out, despite being well covered, to win it for the Bulldogs. Elida is now 8-3 overall and 3-0 in the Western Buckeye League. Van Wert is 6-4 and 2-1. Only an incredible fourth quarter by the visitors made Mathias’s game-winner necessary. Mathias started the fourth period with a 15-foot banker to put the Dogs on top 55-41, a seemingly safe margin. The feisty Cougars, however, were far from finished. AJ Smith nailed a three from the left wing but Elida sophomore Austin Allemeier hit an open layup on a dandy pass from Mathias -- 57-44 with 6:23 left. Aided by a slew of Elida turnovers, however, Van Wert went on a splendid 12-0 run -- Nik Wolford layup (Joey Hurless assist), Hurless spinning layup, Wolford putback, Connor Holliday baseline drive/layup, four straight free throws by Smith -- 57-56, Elida, at 2:41. Allemeier, however, then canned the second-biggest shot of the game -- a trifecta from straight away -- to push the lead to 60-56 at 1:35. Smith slashed through the Bulldog defense for a layup to cut it to 60-58 and a Wolford interception led to a Hurless breakaway layup to tie it at 60 with 51 ticks left on the clock. That set the stage for the game-winner. The hosts started the game in fine fashion, spurting out to an 8-0

INDIANAPOLIS — There is an old saying: necessity is the mother of invention. Austin Vogt wasn’t expecting to necessarily play a lot on the offensive line at the University of Indianapolis in this, his redshirt freshman season. Necessity — in this case, injuries to guys ahead of him — made that thought obsolete and he took advantage of the lucky break. His play at both tackle spots, mostly at left tackle, earned him All-Great Lakes Valley Conference first-team honors. “During practice last spring, I was projected to play either left guard or right tackle — that’s where they had me — but when we started the season against Ashland, I wasn’t expecting to play a lot; however, in the second quarter, our sixth-year left tackle went down with an injury. We moved our right tackle to the left side and since I was the next guy on the depth chart, I went in to play right tackle,” the son of Jim and Sue Vogt recounted. “I did all right in that game. The next game (vs. Macomb, Ill.), our starter at left tackle also got hurt and they moved me to that side. We lost both of those games but then we got on a roll and won nine in a row. We went 8-0 to win our first-ever GLVC title and made it to the second round of the NCAA Division II Playoffs (beating No. 8 Midwestern State) and losing to top-ranked Colorado StatePueblo). “It was all pretty exciting.” It was ironic that when he signed on the dotted line Feb. 2, 2011, for head coach Bob Bartolomeo and offensive coordinator Todd Carter, it was not as a projected left tackle; however with the likely graduation of the two guys that were ahead of him before this season began: starters Andrew Mansaray and Joe Britner; he is now likely entrenched in his familiar left tackle spot, the spot he played for four years at St. John’s. The 6-3, 295-pounder was part of a Greyhounds’

University of Indianapolis redshirt freshman Austin Vogt (75) sets up to pass protect against Central State this fall. Action like this helped the 2011 St. John’s graduate to firstteam All-GLVC honors at left offensive tackle in 2012. (Photo submitted) front wall that finished the regular season ranked second in the nation in fewest sacks allowed and paving the way for running back Klay Fiechter to break the school’s single-season rushing record, rushing for 1,475 yards and 19 touchdowns. Among other new additions to the program’s record books was a first-ever appearance in the final American Football Coaches Association Division II Poll (first published in 2000), finishing number 15; its first-ever playoff appearance; and its first-ever 10-win campaign. He got a lot of practice in the running game from his days at St. John’s but acknowledges a major difference at the collegiate level. “In high school, it seemed like more of a family because I was with guys that I’d grown up with since kindergarten,” he continued. “When you go to college, you get to experience a lot of guys from numerous backgrounds and living experiences. It’s a lot of fun and a great experience to meet different people of different backgrounds; it’s well worth it.” After the team’s loss Nov. 24, there was supposed to be a “dead” period of two weeks where nothing could be mandatory but Vogt only took a week off — to heal up — before starting the offseason program. “I lifted three days a week. During the holidays, they like people to stay but since we’re Division II, they really can’t mandate it and a lot of guys do go home; I’ll be heading back Sunday to school,” Vogt explained. “I’ve continued to lift three times a week and in 2-3 weeks, the winter conditioning begins. That is every Tuesday and Thursday at 6 a.m. for about an hour. We start out with team stretching and then work on such things as getting out of our stance quicker. We have about eight stations: they can be ladders, cones or shuffle drills; and it emphasizes working on speed, quickness and footwork. This is in addition to weight-lifting. Once we get into the summer, the lifting continues as is but the conditioning is four days a week. “I was 275 in high school and I’m 295 now. They don’t want me to get above 305 because I can tell I’m heavier now. I’m a lot stronger but the added weight does have an affect. I think if I got any higher than 305, it would affect my mobility on the field a lot.” The sports management major still has time to be a

normal student and overall human being as well. “There’s a lot of time involved in football and studying — I take 15 credit hours per term, which is what they like the players to do — but there’s time for hobbies. I am rooming with a couple of really good friends and we play a lot of ‘Cabela’s BigGame Hunter’ — we’re into hunting — and basketball video games,” he explained. “We also watch a lot of NetFlix and just hang around as well, whether at our place or other friends’ places. “I did play some intramural basketball last year but I hurt my knee, so I will likely not play again. I want to stay healthy for football. I played baseball in high school and there are a couple of guys that do play it and a couple others than run track and field. For me, though, I will just focus on football and spring practice.” His future is exactly that — the future. “I haven’t thought that far ahead as to what I really want to do when my playing days are over,” he added. “Division II has gotten more and more notice by the NFL but I’m not counting on that. “I’d like to eventually become a coach and an athletic director but I am open to what the future holds.”

Venison donations will be accepted through the end of the deer-archery season, Feb. 3. FHFH collected approximately 104,400 pounds of venison, or 417,600 meals, from 2,088 deer last season. In 2010-11, donations totaled approximately 125,150 pounds of venison, or 500,600 meals, from 2,503 deer. The DOW collaborates with FHFH to assist with the processing costs associated with donating venison to a food bank. The program allows for subsidy grants to be provided in allotments that are matched with funds generated or collected by local Ohio FHFH chapters. The division subsidized this year’s FHFH operation as an additional deer-management tool, helping wildlife managers encourage hunters to harvest more does. Venison donated to participating food banks must be processed by a federal-, state- or locally-inspected and insured meat processor. Hunters wishing to donate their deer are not required to pay for the processing of the venison as long as the program has available funds. Ohio currently has 80 participating meat processors and 32 FHFH local chapters. Anyone interested in becoming a local program coordinator or a participating meat processor can go to and click on the Local FHFH tab. The website includes a list of coordinators, program names and the counties they serve. ---Project WILD and Growing Up WILD Workshop for Educators FINDLAY – Both formal and non-formal educators who work with youth are invited to attend a combined Project WILD, Aquatic WILD and Growing Up WILD workshop in Hancock County on Jan. 25.

know makes it a regular practice to offer to take the hosts out for a meal or at the very least pitch in for groceries. When we are guests, we do this. It is courteous, polite and proper. Are we just oldfashioned? How do we handle Bob’s inability to find his pockets? Should we mention ahead of time that diners will be paying for their own meals? My husband has never brought this up with his brother, but I think it’s time Bob became a good guest. He is single, well-educated and lives comfortably. Should we just come out and tell him? It would be difficult to do without ruffling a few feathers. — New Hampshire Dear New Hampshire: How does your husband feel about this? Bob is being a freeloader, but if your husband prefers not to confront him (and can afford it), we think you should let him decide the issue. Otherwise, since he’s family, and you continue to host him, it’s OK to approach Bob with a lighthearted touch and say it’s his turn to pick up the tab on the next outing. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Frustrated,” whose new husband, “Kevin,” won’t let her buy her own stuff. If he is a control freak, they need counseling, or if necessary, she can get the marriage annulled. Life is too short to live like that. If it were up to my husband, we’d never have anything decent around here. I’ve replaced some of his and my old stuff and learned to stand up to him. It’s not healthy to be married and feel like you are living out a prison sentence. Assuming she’s not trying to buy high-end expensive stuff, she needs to ask herself: Would she let a friend treat her that way? No. — Happily Married 20 Years to a Pack Rat

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, JANUARY 13, 2013 In the year ahead, you are likely to participate in something where you have a minor but critical role. However, what you gain from this arrangement will be far more significant than any title or position. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you first lay a sturdy foundation, something in which you’re presently involved will have excellent chances for success. Begin building now for your tomorrows. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Outward appearances tend to be more significant than you might like, currently. If you hope to inspire someone or get his or her support, you must first look like a leader. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Your intuitive perceptions could provide you with a great deal of valuable information. This is because your hunches are likely to reveal many things that your logic ignores. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Although you are naturally assertive, try to be a bit more laid back when dealing with friends. Sometimes you can gain more from letting others take the reins. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Certain meaningful objectives can be reached if you focus only on them and nothing else. You’re likely to fall short if you lack the necessary concentration and fortitude. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Make an effort to try to broaden your perspective and widen your horizons. The larger your scope of observation, the more opportunities you’re likely to find. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You’re not going to find a better day to investigate situations that have aroused your curiosity. By applying yourself, you should be able to ferret out useful information. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Take plenty of time to weigh both sides of an important issue. By doing so, you’ll be more able to structurally apply what you learn. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Make sure you have plenty of backup if you’re taking on something that could require assistance. Better to be safe instead of sorry. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Under no circumstances should you go along with something that you instinctively feel does not serve your best interests. Show commitment to your decision, and your independence will be respected. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Being able to tie up any loose ends will clear the air and put you at peace, not to mention make this a very productive day for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Although you are likely to be more mentally than physically restless, you can gratify your impulses by sharing your time with some stimulating companions who make you think. MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2013 In coming months, you would do well to get involved in progressive, imaginative endeavors. If you’re sharp enough to back the right horse, things could turn out to be impressively profitable. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Even though your instincts are usually good, you should rely solely on your logic today. This is especially true concerning anything that you’re trying to promote or sell. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Unbeknownst to you, something opportune is developing behind the scenes that will most likely produce definite benefits. However, its full results won’t be felt until later. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -An objective that you previously felt was important could begin to lose its appeal, due to another aim that is now capturing your fancy, becoming far more meaningful. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Whether you need to extricate yourself from a problematical arrangement or turn a losing situation into a winner, you have the ability to do either. You just have to believe in yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don’t let your wonderful gift of being able to grasp facts quickly and accurately go unused. Mingle with people who can teach you what you need to know. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -There is no need to be wishy-washy about elevating your aim if that’s what is needed. You’ll never know how high you can score if you don’t try. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your first thoughts aren’t always your best ones, so it behooves you not to jump to conclusions. Take plenty of time to weigh and balance anything critical or important. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Although you take all of your duties seriously, you know better than most that there’s always the possibility for error. Mistakes could arise when working with someone who needs detailed help. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A better understanding can be achieved with someone whom you haven’t as yet figured out. Turn this acquaintance into a close friend by getting to know each other. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Even if it takes you a while to get into full gear, once you do, chances are you will accomplish something of tremendous worth that will make you and others quite proud. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -It might pay to set aside your usual agenda and give your mind and body a rest from all your worldly affairs. Instead, do something that’s frivolous and carefree. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Your financial aspects look to be especially good. If you have anything important pending, this might be the day to try to close the deal, if at all possible.
