Truesdale travels to London
for New Year’s Parade
By Stacy Taff
staff@delphosherald.com
ADRIAN, MI—As
a member of the Adrian
College Marching Band, 21-
year-old Mike Truesdale was
given the honor of celebrat-
ing the new year in London,
England. Around 60 people
from Adrian, the majority of
which were students, left on
Dec. 28 to participate in the
London New Year’s Parade,
England’s equivalent of the
Macy’s Thanksgiving Day
Parade.
“It was televised so it was
played across BBC, which is
their big network,” Truesdale
said. “There were I think 7
or 8 bands from the United
States, like Olentangy High
School from down near
Columbus and the band from
the University of Southern
Florida. To get involved, the
bands have to apply and then
they go through a selection
process.” Truesdale, who is a
junior at Adrian, plays the alto
saxaphone.
“For the parade we played
songs from one of our march-
ing shows, which included
part of the ‘Washington Post
March’ and ‘Bring Me a
Higher Love,’” he said. “They
also had a finale planned,
where they brought five or six
of the bands together and had
us play a selection of music.”
The trip was doubly excit-
ing for Truesdale, as it was
his first time being out of the
country, let alone on a differ-
ent continent.
“The entire experience was
really interesting. There were
so many tourists because it’s
one of the most popular desti-
nations in the world,” he said.
“It seemed like everywhere
we went we were fighting
through crowds. The people
there seemed really friendly,
for the most part anyway. It
was weird because they do
drive on the opposite side of
the road. Doing the parade was
very unique, certainly differ-
ent from here because the road
wasn’t straight; there were all
these twists and turns.”
When visiting a country
with such a distinctive culture
and long history, it would be
a waste not to take time to
see the sites. Truesdale and
the rest of the band stayed

Red Cross offers disaster
training for recruits
Information submitted
American Red Cross locations throughout the area are recruit-
ing new volunteers to join the Disaster Action Team (DAT) and
assist clients throughout the area.
Natural disasters such as winter storms, floods and home fires

an intensive training session. Participants will receive an orienta-
tion regarding the services provided by American Red Cross and
how to: prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies; set up
and run a shelter during a disaster; complete necessary paperwork
during a disaster; conduct client interviews; and provide appropri-
ate assistance to help meet the person’s needs both during and
following the disaster.
Classes will be held simultaneously at American Red Cross of
Allen County (610 S. Collett Street, Lima) American Red Cross
of Hancock County (125 Fair Street, Findlay), and American Red
Cross of Northwest Ohio (3100 West Central Avenue, Toledo).

Employers subsidized up
to $8,000 for new hires
BY STEPHANIE GROVES

DELPHOS — Ohio
employers searching for qual-
ity candidates can recruit and
be reimbursed for the expense
of training new hires through
the Department of Job and
Family Services (ODJFS).
ODJFS Workforce
Specialist Laura Jones spoke
during a Delphos Area
Chamber of Commerce
seminar Wednesday at the
Microtel Inn & Suites where
local employers were present-
ed with an informative look
into work source services.
In today’s business envi-
ronment, success is increas-
ingly dependent on knowl-
edge and information. To
maintain a competitive edge
and reach their potential,
employers need the resources
to build a strong workforce.
The ODJFS is committed to
helping businesses and orga-
nizations by offering labor
market information, training
grants, pre-interview skills
assessment, layoff aversion,
rapid response assistance, on-
the-job training opportunities
and more.
One of the lesser-known
offerings that businesses can
take advantage of is the On
The Job Training program
(OJT), which allows busi-
nesses to hire and train highly-
skilled individuals. The pro-
gram is made possible through
a federal grant and assists two
groups of people; dislocated
workers, who are not at fault,
and adults with low incomes.
It it imperative that employers
understand that use of the pro-
gram must be initiated and a
contract in force before work-
ers are hired.
“This program helps with
the cost of training and puts
more Ohioans back to work,
which equates to a stronger
workforce for the state,” Jones
emphasized.
When businesses hire an
eligible, out-of-work Ohioan,
the ODJFS will reimburse up
to 50 percent of the employ-
ee’s wages for up to six months
with a maximum reimburse-
ment of $8,000 while learning
on the job. For example, five
employees hired at the rate
of $10 per hour and trained
for six months would cost
$48,000. After reimburse-
ment, employers would only
pay $24,000.
Employee eligibility is
determined through a screen-
ing process, which is very
beneficial for the employer
and ensures a quality candi-
date. Training is based on the
individual, their skill level
and aptitudes required for

Delphos
Inauguration is upon us again. Hope
springs again with all the pageantry,
parades and balls. Let’s all keep our fin-
gers crossed for better times ahead.
I haven’t been writing much the past
year. My youngest decided to have a “des-
tination” wedding and it seemed like every
moment away from work was spent worry-
ing about that. (And trust me…the worry-
ing made all the difference in the world.)
But I have been looking back on the
comparisons between politics, elections,
inaugurations and wedding plans and they
have quite a lot in common.
Wedding: You get the call. “Mom I’m
getting married!” So we put all our plans
on hold…vacations, remodeling… A party
has to be planned. The excitement is
unbelievable. You can’t wait to spread the
news.
Politics: The candidates are announced.
Choices abound. We are excited to hear
every word about what will be happen-
ing, who will do what and what the future
holds.
Wedding: As soon you begin your wed-
ding planning, the choices become tougher
and you get confused and frustrated trying
to make decisions. You just want to please
everyone.
Politics: I got confused and irritated
in trying to make my decision. It seems
like all the candidates are out to please
EVERYONE because that is the key to
being elected.
Wedding: You look at your check book
and think “Why are we paying this much
for some chicken and potatoes..?”
Politics: I look at my check book and
say “Why are we paying this much for
chicken and potatoes.”
Wedding: The calls are seemingly end-
less to the caterer, the wedding planner, the
hotel and DJ. I know they are tired of me
asking a zillion questions that probably a
thousand people have asked before. BUT I
NEED ANSWERS.
Politics: I know they are tired of us
asking a zillion questions. BUT I NEED
ANSWERS.
Wedding: The final emails and calls are
flying as the big wedding day approaches.
I dread looking at my email and hearing the
phone ring again, wondering who needs
what or what needs to go where.
Politics: I dread looking in my mailbox
and hearing the phone ring.
Wedding: The wedding day has come.
Lots of love for my daughter and her new
hubby! Lots of hope, lots of happiness!
Can things get any better than seeing their
bright future?
Politics: The big day has come. The
choice has been made. We all look to catch
a glimpse of that brighter future.
Day after wedding: Just relieved it is all
over and hope to get back to life. It’s then
you realize things haven’t really changed
for Bob and I. We will get back to our
work and our lives. We have faith that the
man we have entrusted with our daughter’s
future realizes what a treasure he has.
Politics: Just relieved it is all over and
hoping for a change. May the man we have
trusted with our future realizes what a trea-
sure he has.

Information submitted
In recent months, law
enforcement officials have
been made aware of an
alleged “drug house” at 317
N. Bredeick St. in Delphos.
An investigation by mem-
bers of the West Central
Ohio Crime Task Force cul-
minated Friday at approxi-
mately 10:15 a.m. when the
task force and members of
the Allen County Sheriff’s
Office Swat Team served a
search warrant on the resi-
dence.
Found inside the resi-
dence were the following
items that were seized for
evidentiary purposes:
• A small quantity of sus-
pected marijuana
• A moderate quantity of
suspected pharmaceutical
pills
• A moderate quantity of
suspected drug parapherna-
lia, including hypodermic
syringes
• A moderate quantity of
US currency
Five adults and one small
child were found inside the
residence. One of the adults,
a 21-year-old white male,
is suspected of illegal drug
sale(s) originating from this
residence.
The other four adults
found in the home, who
are family members of the
21-year-old male, are not
suspected of any wrongdo-
ing.
Once the 21-year-old
male is formally charged,
his name will be released.
The West Central Ohio
Crime Task Force is com-
prised of officers from the
following agencies; Allen
County Sheriff’s Office,
Van Wert County Sheriff’s
Office, Lima Police
Department, Delphos Police
Department and multiple
state/ federal agencies. This
task force operates within a
multi county area to combat
drugs and major crimes.
Task force serves warrant on Delphos home
(Continued from page 1)
at Cumberland Hotel which
placed them relatively close
to downtown London and
popular tourist targets.
“We toured Windsor
Castle and we also got to see
Buckingham Palace, where
we watched the changing of
the guard,” he said.
“They were in their win-
ter uniforms, so unfortunate-
ly they weren’t as bright and
flashy as we expected them
to be. We also got to walk
around Oxford University.”
“My favorite part was
probably getting to see
the Tower of London,”
Truesdale continued.
“I also really enjoyed the
fireworks show they did to
ring in the new year. We
were allowed to watch them
from wherever we wanted,
so we found a spot under-
neath Big Ben and got to
watch it change at midnight
before the fireworks start-
ed.”
Truesdale, who is a
Jefferson graduate, got
the idea to attend Adrian
after spending a week there
every summer while in high
school.
“The Jefferson Marching
Band holds band camp there
every year and I grew to
really like the campus,”
Truesdale said. “They have
small class sizes so it’s pret-
ty similar to high school.
The campus is small too and
everyone is really friendly.
It’s just a great commu-
nity.”

the position. Throughout
the employee’s training,
there are monitors in place
to verify that employers
are providing appropriate
instruction and employees
are following policy and
procedure. Any separation
must be documented.
“The employer will treat
the new hire just as they
would any other employ-
ee,” Jones detailed the cri-
teria. “The particulars of
the contract and training
period are highly individu-
alized.”
There is an addition-
al program, the Work
Opportunity Tax Credit
(WOTC), which aids com-
panies that hire eligible
workers from target groups
of disadvantaged job-
seekers. This opportunity
is a win-win situation for
both parties; the employer
receives a tax break and
the job-seeker evolves
from economic dependen-
cy into self-sufficiency.
Employers who recruit
Veterans, ex-felons, SNAP
benefits and short and long-
term Temporary Assistance
for Needy Families
(TANF) recipients, voca-
tional rehabilitation refer-
rals, Supplemental Security
Income (SSI) recipients,
summer youth employees
and designated community
residents can receive a tax
credit of $2,400 to $9,600.
The website is very conve-
nient. Employers can com-
plete and submit a state
level application online for
up to 28 days after hir-
ing a qualified worker and
complete the tax filing at
the federal level after cer-
tification.
“This is good for small
and large companies,”
Jones declared. “It reduces
a businesses tax burden and
is worth looking into.”
The One Stop System
is a highly useful tool cre-
ated through the Workforce
Investment Act of 1988
and provides a customer-
focused system of train-
ing and employment ser-
vices to job-seekers and
employers, cost free. The
One Stop collaborates with
partner agencies to meet
the needs of employers and
job-seekers.
In addition, through the
Ohio Means Jobs web-
site, employers can take
advantage of many ser-
vices, including employee
recruitment, where organi-
zations can file and post
job openings; participate
in job fairs; hold mass
recruitments; and receive
assistance with job post-
ing descriptions. The agen-
cy can aid an employer
with candidate selection by
screening, utilizing skills
and aptitude assessments
and supporting the hiring
for specific groups, such
as older workers, veterans
or those with disabilities.
The agency offers referrals
to local employment agen-
cies, access to the comput-
er training lab and confer-
ence room, apprenticeship
programs and on-the-job
employee training.

what’s new at the muse-
um and spend a fun eve-

Yes I did hear you
earlier. What is the sig-
nificance of parcel post?
Why is that so impor-
tant? At the turn of the
twentieth century, rural
America had just start-
ed to receive delivery
of mail at their homes
and farms. Rural Free
Delivery began as an
experiment in West
Virginia in 1896. Prior
to that, people had to
travel into town to get
their mail, many on foot
or by horseback.
The Post Office
Department was not
geared to handling large
items. But the rural
towns storekeepers were
not going to lay down
quietly when this idea
was proposed. Known
as the Great Debate in
Congress, lobbyists for
major department stores
fought hard to have
goods shipped easily and
cheaply to Americans
throughout the coun-
try. In 1913, Congress
directed the United
States Postal Department
to institute parcel post
and as such this was the
first nail in the coffin for
small town retailers.
However, the consum-
er was the prize win-
ner here. Now they had
the opportunity to order
from catalogs with great-
er variety and competi-
tive pricing. It has been
said that you would find
two items on the table in
the living room of every
farmhouse - the family
bible and a Sears and
Roebuck catalog.
You could buy
almost anything through
the mail. If you visit
the Delphos Canal
Commission Museum
you will find a car made
by Sears. You could pur-
chase guns, buildings,
almost anything could
be delivered by the US
Mail.

and learn more about
this major milestone
in the development of
America.

CONVOY - It is a milestone
that most couples never see.
Karl and Isabelle Schumm will
celebrate their 75th wedding
anniversary on Tuesday. Yes,
75 years together. Officially,
it is their Diamond and Gold
anniversary. The couple are
celebrating with a reception on
Sunday at Vancrest of Convoy
from 2-4 p.m.
There will be another cel-
ebration upcoming as Isabelle
turns 97 on Monday. Karl will
hit 100 in August. The two were
married back in 1938 in the par-
sonage of St. Thomas Lutheran
Church on German Church
Road. After the wedding, the
couple went back home to begin
married life together.
“We went to the grocery
store and bought some grocer-
ies. We went home and she
cooked a meal. That was our
honeymoon!” Karl smiled.
The couple met in an
unlikely way. Living just three
miles apart, the two ended up
on the same school bus route.
“We went to Van Wert
schools, and he got to drive the
bus for me, ” Isabelle said. “He
was only 18. After that, they
didn’t let him do that. They
wanted older people.”
Karl laughed about that and
noted that things were a little
different back then. He was
still in high school when he
was hired to drive his bus. He
also shared that bus driving
was a paying job.
“I made a dollar a day going
to school! That was pretty good
money back then!” said Karl.
As the romance progressed,
Karl began to think about mar-
riage. He invested in a home in
Convoy near the grain elevator
on what is now St. Rd. 49. The
house is gone now, but the
memories remain.
“I owned half of it, but I
didn’t tell her,” Karl remem-
bered. “I showed it to her and
asked her if she wanted to get
married and live here with me.
And she took me up on it! She
was 22-years-old, a nice, hard-
working, pretty young girl.”
Over the years, the couple
raised three sons and a daugh-
ter. The family remains close,
having gathered on Saturday
mornings for many years.
Karl ran a chicken hatchery in
Convoy in the location where
the post office stands today.
Isabelle also helped with the
egg business.
In the 1950s, the Schumms
moved out of town to a farm
at the corner of Wolfcale Rd.
and St. Rd. 49. There were
still chickens to care for along
with a few hogs and fruit trees.
Eventually grandchildren
entered the picture. Then great-
grandchildren. Now the couple
has nine grandchildren with
one deceased, and 19 great-
grandchildren.
The only thing that has been
able to separate the Schumms
is Isabelle’s failing health.
She has moved to Vancrest in
Convoy to live. Fortunately,
that is not very far from Karl.
Although he no longer drives,
Karl has a regular schedule
to come to town and visit his
long-time wife, including
church services every Sunday.
“Appreciate your wife
before she goes to the nursing
home. Appreciate her while
you have her,” he emphasized.
“We live apart now. Not living
together, that’s not good.”
Aside from not driving,
Karl gets around very well
for a man nearing the century
mark. He even still mows
his own lawn. Sitting in the
front room at Vancrest, Karl
even sang the song from his
confirmation at St. Thomas
Church back in 1927 — in
German — flawlessly.
As for the question that
everyone seems to ask, how
can anyone stay married for
75 years? Isabelle summed it
up matter-of-factly.
“You just do what you
have to do every day and
every week.”
Karl and Isabelle Schumm were married Jan. 22, 1938.
They are celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary on
Sunday, 2-4 p.m. at Vancrest of Convoy. The public is
invited. Please, no gifts. (Times Bulletin/Ed Gebert)

75th anniversary
Kasich to give State of the State
speech in Lima at Civic Center
By JULIE CARR SMYTH
The Associated Press
COLUMBUS — For the second year in
a row, Gov. John Kasich is making plans to
deliver his State of the State speech outside
the capital city, a practice he says exposes
more Ohioans to their government but which
critics say sets a bad precedent.
Assuming state lawmakers agree, this
year’s venue will be Lima, a rebounding
Rust Belt city of 38,000 that sits equidistant
between Toledo and Dayton in northwest
Ohio. Kasich will give the speech on Monday
at Veterans Memorial Civic Center.
In another departure from tradition, Kasich
hopes to deliver the speech in the evening this
year, rather than the usual noontime start.
In 2012, Kasich became the first governor
in modern memory to take the year’s big
policy speech outside the Ohio Statehouse
in Columbus. The first-term Republican
chose Steubenville for the occasion, using
the award-winning Wells Academy, named
the best school in the state, to tout education
successes and the benefits of the region’s bur-
geoning shale gas industry.
Justices were unable to attend last year’s
speech because court was in session the day
it was delivered, and some statewide offi-
cials and legislators couldn’t or chose not
to attend.
Choosing Lima this year gives Kasich
a chance to highlight economic successes
he has touted on both the state and national
stages. Unemployment in Allen County has
fallen since he took office, moving from 10.8
percent to 6.7 percent. The selection of Lima,
the county seat, was first reported by The
Lima News.
The newly elected president of the Ohio
Senate, Republican Keith Faber, also resides
nearby. He issued a statement Friday praising
the governor’s efforts to use the State of the
State speech to highlight new areas of the
state.
“I’m especially honored to host the gov-
ernor and my legislative colleagues in Lima,
one of the economic hubs of my district,” he
said. “We’ve got a great story to tell, and I
know Gov. Kasich has an incredible record
and vision to share in this important address.
This is how government ‘of the people’
should work.”
Lawmakers, Supreme Court justices,
Cabinet officials and statewide officeholders
would need to make the trip to convene the
joint legislative session where the speech is
delivered. Lima is about 100 miles west of
Columbus. Before 2012, the Ohio General
Assembly last convened a joint session out-
side Columbus in 2003, when lawmakers
traveled to the first state capital, Chillicothe,
to celebrate the state’s bicentennial. The time
before that was in the 1950s.
Some Democratic lawmakers have called
on their colleagues to reject Kasich’s request
to take the speech outside the Statehouse, say-
ing it breaks a long-held and important tradi-
tion. Others have criticized the added costs of
the event.
To counter them, Kasich sent a letter to
state lawmakers along with his venue request
Friday asking them to support his decision.

Fight Occurs at
Fanger’s Cafe
Three Lima young men and
four from Van Wert received
fines Monday morning in
Mayor W.H. Taylor’s Court
as the result of a fight staged
about 1:15 Sunday morning
at Fanger’s Cafe. A Delphos
man, an innocent victim of the
quarrel, sustained a fracture of
his left ankle.
According to testimony
brought out at the trial, the
fight started as the group of
Lima and Van Wert people
were on their way downstairs
from the dance hall which is
located on the second floor.
The battle continued in the
dining room at the foot of the
stairs and in the melee, one
of the fighters was knocked
against the table occupied by
Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Eiche
and a group of friends.
The fight continued
around the table and Mr. and
Mrs. Eiche were both thrown
to the floor. Before he could
be helped to his feet, one of
the fighters stepped on Mr.
Eiche’s ankle. A local physi-
cian was called and Mr. Eiche
was removed to the Van Wert
county hospital in the Harter
ambulance. The fracture was
reduced and he was brought
to his home on South Main
street, Monday.

Glamorgan Plant Will
Move to Delphos
The Glamorgan Tire and
Rubber Company will soon
move its Orrville plant to
this city. It is the intention
to begin moving the machin-
ery between January 2 and 5,
so that the plant may be in
operation as soon as the new
building is completed.
They expect to have the
roof on the building in time
to take care of the machinery
and material from the Orrville
plant as fast as it arrives.
The company has sold
somewhat more tires than the
sixty thousand tires originally
intended and orders are still
coming in.
Morgan Howell, president
and general manager, states
that the company feels justi-

plant. The second building
will be located immediately
south of the first structure.
The second large building
will be used to manufacture
solid tires for trucks.
The office of the company
will be separate from the fac-

Little Girl is Honored
in Toledo
Miss Elsie Annette Krieft,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
John Krieft, Delphos resi-
dents, who moved to Toledo
several months ago, sang two
solos at the Museum of Art
in Toledo last Sunday after-
noon. Toledo papers carried
a picture of little Miss Krieft
and she was received with
much enthusiasm by those
who heard her.
The child is only ten years
of age and possesses a voice
of a sweet treble quality. She
has appeared before a number
of audiences in Delphos and
other cities and people of this
city who have heard the little
girl predict a brilliant future
for her in musical circles. She
has a sweet personality which
also gains her favor.
In speaking of Mrs. Krieft,
one Toledo paper says: “Mrs.
Krieft, before her marriage
was Miss Edna Roebuck, and
won considerable recogni-
tion at various eisteddfods
in Pittsburgh, Lima and Van
Wert.”
When Mr. and Mrs. Krieft
and family left this city to
make Toledo their home,
musical circles in this city suf-
fered a distinct loss. Delphos
people are more than pleased
to hear of the honors which
they are receiving in their
new home.
The solos which Miss
Krieft sang at the concert
Sunday afternoon were,
“Leaves and the Wind,”
by Leonly and “Daddy’s
Sweetheart,” by Lehman.

Four Cars Going to
Claude Bergfeld
Wedding, Slide Into Ditch
An automobile party on its
way to Wapakoneta to attend
the nuptial of Miss Caroline
O’Neil and Claude Bergfeld
of this city figured in an acci-
dent which was the first of a
series of similar happenings.
“The St. Marys-Wapak
road was the scene of a num-
ber of upsets of automobiles
yesterday.
G.C. Goodrich, with an
automobile load, were going
to Wapak to attend the nup-
tial of Caroline O’Neil and
Claude Bergfeld when they
were ditched near the spot
where the Oak Grove Church
once stood. The road at that
spot is about 300 feet west-
ward, higher. Good running
was had until getting on top
of the hill where there was
an icy glaze. Putting on the
brakes did no good. Mr.
Goodrich’s outfit was the first
to come and slump into the
four foot embankment. Henry
Vanderhorst came a short dis-
tance behind. On reaching the
ice field his car turned around
and then went into the ditch
alongside the Goodrich car.
A wheel was broken off each
of the vehicles. One fender
was torn off the Vanderhorst
vehicle also.
William Fisher, the bakery
proprietor, was driving east-
ward with his truck about the
same time and he followed
“suit”, plunging into the ditch
back of Vanderhorst.
A farmer then came along
and his automobile turned
around on the glazed spot and
tried out the north side ditch.
No damage was done to his
outfit. No one was hurt.

NEW YORK — To
the world-weary, Lance
Armstrong’s confession to
Oprah was just one more in
a series.
The process of public con-
trition is by now yawningly
familiar: Comfortably seated
in front of cameras, the high
priestess of the mea culpa
faces the penitent. Armstrong,
stoic and chiseled, agrees
to terms of engagement, his
reflexive grin/grimace a fore-
shadowing of the little deaths
to come.
Remotes to the ready,
America prepares to watch
and judge.
This is familiar turf for
Oprah, America’s First
Interrogator — often hav-
ing previously been First
Endorser. She once sang the
praises of James Frey, who
fabricated most of his drug-
abuse autobiography, “A
Million Little Pieces,” and
then had to call him back
to the couch to hash out his
deception.
Now, having once been
a champion of Armstrong,
urging Americans to wear
his yellow gel “Livestrong”
bracelet in solidarity with the
cancer survivor/champion, it
is Armstrong’s turn to explain
himself.
Did he dope? Yes. Did he
boost his blood with EPO?
Yes. Did he lie, betray and
bully? Yes, all that.
Did he feel guilty? Not
really.
Guilt without shame.
Did it feel wrong at the
time? No. “Scary,” he says.
“Did you feel bad about
it?” No.
“Even scarier.”
This is not sounding much
like contrition because, well,
it isn’t. Matter-of-factly,
Armstrong tells Oprah that he
was just leveling the playing
field, doing what was neces-
sary to compete in a sport
where doping apparently was
widespread. Indeed, some
familiar with the field argue
that, if all had cycled clean,
Armstrong still would have
won.
This is of no consolation
to those who feel betrayed
or who have been bullied by
Armstrong through the years.
Of all his sins, Armstrong’s
persistent bullying toward
any who questioned his drug
use — often suing them, suc-
cessfully — seems to be the
most unforgivable.
The doping might shatter
dreams and myths, but the
lying breaks hearts.
In thinking through
the events of the past sev-
eral years, one would like
to imagine that Armstrong
accidentally fell into a hole
from which he could not
emerge. Protecting the myth
to advance the greater good
was perhaps the more com-
pelling imperative. Toward
this end, one could perhaps
self-justify.
Finally caught, he had no
recourse. Admission is not
so noble or virtuous when
the facts are unavoidable.
There’s nothing left to do but
say, yes, I did it. Confession
— authentic confession —
is something else, involving
heartfelt remorse. And so we
watch Armstrong in search
of that thing we recognize as
sincere contrition — and it
doesn’t seem to be there.
During his interview with
Oprah, Armstrong said the
problem was his 2009 come-
back. If he hadn’t come back,
he probably wouldn’t have
been caught.
“Do you regret now com-
ing back?” Oprah asked.
“We wouldn’t be sitting
here if I didn’t come back,”
he said.
It isn’t necessary that
Armstrong publicly weep,
but this sounds an awful lot
like “I’m sorry if your feel-
ings were hurt,” instead of
“I’m sorry I hurt you.” Rather
than owning up, the perpetra-
tor shifts blame to the per-
son aggrieved. Armstrong
isn’t sorry for what he did;
he seems sorry he got caught.
Giving him the benefit of
the doubt, perhaps this is all
the man has left. We specta-
tors tend through these rep-
etitions to honor a template
for public cleansings, whether
for grief or guilt. In the latter
case, everyone must touch the
stations of the cross on their
road to redemption: Invoke
one’s faith, shed a tear, bite
the lower lip, enter rehab, and
so on.
Even when all this is prop-
erly executed, do we really
trust the penitent? Or is it
simply a requisite ritual?
Armstrong, though he
accepted Oprah’s invitation,
declined our kind invitation
to fall to his knees. Nor did
he ask for pity — or offer
excuses or names. He refused
to play snitch and, apparently,
has no well-crafted strategy
for redemption. He’s simply
saying he did it.
Perhaps it is a mistake to
judge a person’s sincerity by
affect. We all grieve in dif-
ferent ways; perhaps, too, we
experience guilt and shame in
our own way.
Stripped of his seven Tour
de France titles, his Olympic
medal, ousted by the founda-
tion he created and facing
multiple lawsuits, Armstrong
has fallen just about as far as
one can. It seems enough.

LOCAL ROUNDUP
Fourth quarter lifts Lancers over Jeffcats
By BRIAN BASSETT
DHI Correspondent
sports@timesbulletin.com
MIDDLE POINT — The
Lincolnview Lancer and
Jefferson Wildcat boys bas-
ketball teams met Friday night
at Lincolnview High School
for a Northwest Conference
matchup, with both teams rid-
ing losing skids.
The game was close
throughout but the Lancers
pulled away in the fourth
quarter for a 49-43 win.
“Coming in and getting a
win was huge on our own
floor,” said Lincolnview
coach Brett Hammons. “I told
our guys going in it was going
to be a tough game. … It
wasn’t our best shooting per-
formance, but we found a way
to get it done.”
Jefferson coach Marc
Smith credited the Lancers
with closing the game out
strong: “Lincolnview’s got a
nice basketball team. Their
guards are very, very good;
give them a lot of credit. They
made some plays from that
5-minute mark to about that
2-minute mark (of the fourth
quarter). We had a couple
of defensive breakdowns on
the high ball screen and they
made us pay for it.”
The Lancers were led by
a game-high 23 points from
junior point guard Kyle
Williams. Williams connect-
ed on 9-of-13 shots, including
5-of-7 from 3-point range.
“It took a while in this
season to get adjusted to what
we are doing. But these last
six or seven games, Kyle has
been leading us,” Hammons
explained. “He’s been leading
us as a scorer and that’s what
we need him to do and also be
a floor leader. His shots are
huge and he’s starting to shoot
with more confidence.”
The Jeffcats were without
the services of junior forward
Ross Thompson, who was out
with injury, and Smith admit-
ted the team missed him on
the floor.
“We’re like a MASH unit
in there (the locker room).
We came out tonight and we
didn’t have Ross, who is an
All-Northwest Conference
performer. We’re on the road
and we’re starting two fresh-
men and a sophomore. …
Ross does a lot of things for
us,” he said.
Thanks to a pair of early
threes from Williams, the
Lancers grabbed a 14-13 lead
after a quarter of play. Senior
guard Zach Ricker and fresh-
man forward Trey Smith got
four points each in the first
frame for the Wildcats, which
was a sign of things to come
for Jefferson.
The teams fought to a rela-
tively even second quarter, in
which Lincolnview shot 3-of-
17, but Jefferson couldn’t
counter due to seven turn-
overs in the stretch. Smith’s
four points in the second were
good enough to pull the score
to a 20-20 tie at halftime.
The Lancers took con-
trol of the game in the third
quarter and found themselves
leading 32-26 at the end of
it. Lincolnview held Jefferson
to one made field goal in the
stanza.
“Our last few games we’ve
had to go zone with the match-
ups,” explained Hammons.
“(Tonight) we stayed man, I
would say, 95 percent of the
game. They have a player in
Smith — I told (the kids) he is
good and we have to get after
him. I put (senior forward)
Mark Evans on him during
the whole second half and I
thought he did a good job. …
I thought it might be our best
defensive performance we’ve
had.”
Jefferson drew as close as
three, 37-34, but Lincolview
held Jefferson off down
the stretch thanks to seven
Williams points and a 6-of-8
team mark from the free-throw
line. Despite the loss, Smith
and Ricker turned in nice per-
formances for Delphos. Smith
tallied 17 points, going 7-of-
12 from the field. Ricker shot
5-of-10 en route to a 15-point
performance.
“Trey was really good.
They were face-guarding
him, sending double and triple
teams at him, and he was still
finding a way to get the ball
in the hole,” Coach Smith
continued. “Zach Ricker was
able to benefit from that a
little bit because Lincolnview
was sending so many people
strong-side that he was able
to drive the weak side. I think
(junior point guard) Austin
Jettinghoff grew up a lot. He’s
always had a little bit of a
crutch, to go back to Ross; he
didn’t have that tonight.”
Unfortunately for the
Wildcats, no other player
added more than four points.
Smith attributed part of that
to young players getting new
playing time due to injuries.
“Tonight was like a first
game for us because we had
kids playing different roles.
I though we competed and
went toe-to-toe the entire ball
game,” Smith said.
Along with Williams’
23 points, sophomore guard
Justis Dowdy chipped in 12
points for the Lancers.
“Jefferson took us out of
some things - give them credit
— but we found a way down
the stretch. We made some
shots in the fourth quarter.
I was pleased our defense
came up and got some stops;
I’m just pleased with the
effort (the kids) gave,” added
Hammons. “At first, we were
starting to figure out roles but
as the season has gone along,
I think Justis understands that
he has to score some for us.
It’s not a one-man team. We
need guys to step up and I
think he’s getting a lot more
comfortable.”
The loss drops the Wildcats
to 3-10 on the season and 1-4
in NWC play. They entertain
Pandora-Gilboa tonight (6
p.m. JV tip).
With the win, Lincolnview
improves to 4-10 on the sea-
son and 2-3 in NWC action.
They welcome in Antwerp
tonight.

Blue Jays stay atop MAC
boys standings
By JIM METCALFE
jmetcalfe@
delphosherald.com
NEW KNOXVILLE — St.
John’s head boys basketball
coach Aaron Elwer couldn’t
have been much happier about
his team’s first-half perfor-
mance Friday night inside “The
Little City” inside Ranger
Gymnasium at New
Knoxville.
His Blue Jays built a
40-19 lead by halftime en
route to a 65-47 Midwest
Athletic Conference vic-
tory.
The Jays (9-3, 4-0
MAC) kept pace with St.
Henry atop the league standings
and set up a showdown Friday
at home.
“That was one of our bet-
ter halves of the season; we
were doing it on both ends. We
focused on the defensive end
some this week because I felt
we weren’t as good as we need-
ed to be last weekend,” Elwer
explained. “We were getting
stops and then rebounding the
ball and heading the other way.
We were getting good inside-
out action out of our dribble-
drive offense and that’s when
we are at our best offensively.
We’re getting good shots out
of it and knocking them down.”
For New Knoxville coach
Kort Fledderjohann, he wasn’t
pleased with his team.
“St. John’s came ready
to play from the start and we
weren’t; they smacked us in
the mouth from the get-go. We
have to become more physi-
cally and mentally ready all the
time,” he explained. “We really
talked about that at halftime
and we were much better but
we couldn’t make shots that we
needed. That was the difference
tonight; they hit their open shots
and we failed to do so.” St.
John’s used solid shooting all-
around: 22-of-42 for the game,
including 9-of-18 beyond the
arc, for 52.4 percent. Senior
Curtis Geise poured in 25 mark-
ers and junior Eric Clark struck
for 15, all on treys.
When Geise hit a jumper
from the left elbow at 7:05,
St. John’s had the lead and
they never gave it up. Hitting
8-of-12 shots in the period,
with Geise knocking down
three baskets and senior Ryan
Buescher adding five points,
they steadily built a lead, forc-
ing Fledderjohann to burn two
timeouts in the period to try and
stem the tide. Still, when Geise
made an off-balance drive with
39 ticks on the clock,
the Blue and Gold led
18-7.
The Jays didn’t
let up in the second
stanza at all, knock-
ing down 7-of-14
shots from the floor,
including 4-of-10
downtown. They also
added 4-of-4 at the line (12-
of-17 for the game for 70.6%).
Geise was on fire, clicking for
11 markers in the stanza. His
3-ball from right of the key with
2.1 ticks on the board accounted
for a 40-19 halftime score.
Sometimes, it can be dif-
ficult to maintain intensity
coming out of the locker room
with such a big lead. The Jays
experienced that first-hand
Friday night in the third. They
cooled off for 3-of-9 shooting
and committed five of their 11
game turnovers (12 for New
Knoxville) in the span as the
home team made a run: after the
Jays went up 42-22 on a Geise
(6 points in the period) basket,
Knoxville got within 44-29 on a
layin by Adam Howe with 2:25
showing. After Buescher hit
two singles at 36.4 ticks, a mid-
lane jumper by Isaac Kuntz (10
markers) at the 14-second mark
got the hosts within 48-33.
If the Rangers had hopes
of a miracle comeback in the
fourth period, they were quickly
dashed by three bombs from
Clark in the first two minutes
that pushed the Jays to a 57-36
advantage. From then on, both
coaches could begin to substi-
tute their deeper reserves and
give their starters some early
rest as the game wore down.
“We’ve generally been
good coming out of halftime
and playing with intensity but
we kind of struggled tonight,”
Elwer added. “We started to get
back into the flow later in the
period but you strive for four
quarters of consistently good

MILLER CITY — Friday
night, the Big Green of head
coach Todd Turnwald traveled
to Miller City for their annual
Putnam County League boys
basketball matchup.
Wildcat head coach Brian
Kuhlman saw his team come
out with a lackluster first half
only to outscore the Big Green
28-20 in the second half in
notching their third PCL and
10th win of the season 39-32.
The first quarter saw the
Wildcats open the scor-
ing with a 3-ball from Adam
Drummelsmith to take the
early lead. As promising as
that first shot looked for the
Wildcats, it would be their
only points of the quarter as the
Big Green would come away
with a 6-3 quarter lead. As the
score indicated, the Big Green
were not lighting up the score-
board, either. Luke and Derek
Schimmoeller accounted for all
the Big Green scoring with four
and two points, respectively.
As bad as the first quarter
was on the offensive end of the
court for both teams, the second
quarter was none better. The
Wildcats were not able to dent
the scoreboard until the 2:55
mark when Ross Vennekotter
was fouled and sent to the
line where he connected on
both from the charity stripe.
All eight points scored in the
quarter for the Wildcats came
off the bench as Jacob Gerten
added three and Adam Niese
added a deuce, rounding out the
scoring for the Wildcats.
The Big Green’s six points
all came from the foul line as
again, only two players scored
for the visitors with both
Schimmoeller boys going 3-4
from the line.
The third quarter saw the
Wildcats turn up the heat on
both ends of the court. Austin
Lammers came up big in the
quarter with three big 3-point-
ers and Ross Kaufman, on the
bench most of the first half
with two quick fouls, chipped
in five points, leading the scor-
ing attack for the home squad.
The Big Green tried to stay
close during the stanza and
only trailed 27-24 going into
the final period.
As the fourth quarter began,
the Wildcats — with the lead —
started to force the Big Green to
come out of their zone after
them. Also, the Wildcats were
aware of the foul situation and
knew the Big Green would be
forced to foul, sending them to
the line throughout the quarter.
The strategy worked well for
the Wildcats as they connected
on 5-8 from the stripe and used
two Big Green turnovers late
in the game to outscore the
visitors 12-8 in the quarter and
notch the 7-point win.
Coach Turnwald saw his
squad take a step backwards
this night: “We talked about
#35 (Austin Lammers) all week
that we couldn’t give him any
good looks because he’s an
excellent 3-point shooter but
tonight we just could not exe-
cute against that and it really
killed us tonight. I’m really
disappointed in our all-around
execution tonight, especially on
the offensive end. You need
to credit their defense for a lot
of that but I thought mentally,
we were not here tonight. I’m
not sure why; it’s really disap-
pointing because we had some
real good things going and to
come out here tonight with that
performance — especially on
a league night — is simply
disappointing. We’re not deep
enough — we play five guys
a lot — and got great min-
utes out of Cory Fischer off
the bench; however, we can-
not have the (Ryan) Honigfords
and the (Brandt) Landins come
out and only score two points.
Four guys score and two out of
the four score two - that’s tough
to win at any level.”
The Wildcats (10-3, 3-1
PCL) were led by Lammers
and his 12 points on the night.
The Wildcats were only 5-24
from inside the arc for 21 per-
cent; however, the game was
won beyond the arc as the hosts
connected on 6-16 (38%) and
were 11-17 (65%) from the
foul line. The Wildcats hauled
down 23 boards and committed
12 turnovers.
The Big Green (6-8, 1-2
PCL) were led by Luke
Schimmoeller with 17 and
Derek Schimmoeller with 11.
The Big Green shot 46 percent
by going 12-26 from inside
the arc and were a dismal 0-7
from 3-point land. From the
charity stripe, they continued
their excellent shooting by con-
necting on 8-10 (80%) for the
evening. The Green only had
14 turnovers for the game and
hauled down 19 boards.
The Big Green will travel
to Liberty-Benton tonight for a
6:30 junior varsity start.
The Wildcats will host Lima
Temple Christian.
The JV game went to the
Wildcats 23-15.
Jacob Gerten led the
Wildcats with six points.
Ottoville was led by
Brendon Schnipke and Dustin
Trenkamp with six points
apiece.

The four of us involved in
picking last week’s divisional
round had a mixed bag.
Guest Picker #1 Bob
Weber went 3-1, whilst
us regular guys (Dave
Boninsegna and I) went 2-2.
GP #2 Brian Bassett was 1-3.
That moves our marks to
thus: for me, 109-82 (45-41
in college, 64-41 pros) — ah,
I’m glad I don’t do this for a
living; 119-72 for Dave (57-
29, 62-43); and 95-63 (45-22,
50-41) for the GPs.
Bob and Brian are back.
Here are the games.
C o n f e r e n c e
Championships: Baltimore at
New England; San Francisco
at Atlanta.
——-
JIM METCALFE
SAN FRANCISCO: Colin
Kaepernick; what a perfor-
mance last week against what
I thought was an improving
Green Bay defense in his first
postseason start. I see no rea-
son to expect anything dif-
ferent against a Falcon ‘D’
that may not have injured DE
John Abraham; if he plays, he
likely will be far less effec-
tive. Offensively, the 49ers’
defense is stout and with
Atlanta seemingly having
no consistent run-
ning game, they will
harrass Matt Ryan all
day with that line and
linebackers. All told,
this may not even
be close as Falcon
TE and future first-
ballot Hall-of-Famer
Tony Gonzalez sees
his career come to
an end.
NEW ENGLAND: This
one is a real toss-up, even
with the Patriots favored
by nine and this being in
Foxboro. The Ravens’
defense has given Patriots’
QB (and future first-ballot
HOFer) Tom Brady fits in
his 13-year career, espe-
cially with future first-ballot
HOFers Ray Lewis (playing
what could be his final game)
and safety Ed Reed; they
actually did a pretty good job
last week vs. Peyton Manning
and Company. Baltimore QB
Joe Flacco actually outper-
formed Brady in last year’s
conference finals. That being
written, I think the key is the
Pats’ young, fast and improv-
ing defense, led by an old war-
horse in NT Vince Woolfork.
After all, Bill Belichick is a
defensive wizard. Throw in
the Ravens’ terrible special
teams (at least last week) and
that tilts the game toward NE.
——-
DAVE BONINSEGNA
Atlanta: The 49ers are back
in the NFC Championship
game for the second consecu-
tive year but this time they
are confident they can take
that next step this year behind
Collin Kaepernick. However,
the Atlanta Falcons look at
their first playoff victory
and are 7-1 at home despite
nearly coughing
up a big lead last
week against the
Seahawks. The con-
ference’s top two
teams meet Sunday
at the rockin’
Georgia Dome with
a berth in Super
Bowl XLVII on the
line. The question is
can Kaepernick pull
off two more wins;
the Falcons had a nearly big
hiccup last week. I may be the
only one but what do I have to
lose? The Falcons play very
well at home and I’m going
to go with Matt Ryan and the
Falcons.
New England: On paper
this one shouldn’t be close;
the Ravens have what
they wanted — anoth-
er shot at the New
England Patriots. The
AFC championship
will feature the same
teams from the year
before for the first
time in 25 years when
the Patriots play the
Ravens on Sunday in
Foxborough, where
New England has never
lost with the Super Bowl on
the line. The Patriots won
last year 23-20 with a typi-
cal Brady drive late in the
game. The Ravens aren’t the
defensive team they used to
be and this could be the last
game in the HOF career of
Ray Lewis. … The Wilson’s
Super Bowl football will have
New England and Atlanta
enscribed on it and zsport-
slive.com will give you the
change to win one. Go to our
Facebook page to see how.
——-
BRIAN BASSETT
Personally I am pulling
for the Ravens and 49ers
because I would like to see
the Harbaugh brothers duke it
out for a title.
ATLANTA: As far as the
NFC, I think the Falcons will
win. I don’t believe domes
present that much of a home-
field advantage but it is more
favorable than playing in San
Francisco. I think Matt Ryan
can will this team to a win and
the emergence of Julio Jones
— and the secondary — has
put the Falcons above where
they have been in the past.
NEW ENGLAND: I think
the Patriots will win because,
well, they are the Patriots.
Tom Brady is Tom Brady
— unflappable, especially at
GilLette. The Patriots
will just find a way
to win, as they usu-
ally do. The Ravens
defense isn’t as good
as its reputation has
built it up to be and
Brady will expose it.

BOB WEBER
New England
– In a rematch of
last year’s AFC
Championship Game, the
Baltimore Ravens visit the
New England Patriots Sunday
night at Gillette Stadium. The
Ravens have struggled in
Foxboro, losing six of seven
visits. New England, mean-
while, is back in the AFC title
game for the third time in the
last five seasons after win-
ning the AFC East again. The
Patriots are full of confidence
moving forward, despite the
loss of star tight end Rob
Gronkowski. Baltimore is a
hot team and seems to be
legitimately inspired by Ray
Lewis’ impending retire-
ment. However, they have
Joe Flacco, who I compare
to a home run hitter in base-
ball – yes, he can hit the long
ball on occasion; however,
more often he comes up short
or swings and misses in big
moments. Ray Rice is just
a stud – but I don’t think
he gets the ball enough to
be the true game-changing
player he is. The Ravens’
defense looked very vulner-
able against the Broncos and
their special teams were hor-
rible, giving up two return
touchdowns. The Patriots –
Tom Brady (what doesn’t this
guy have): tremendous quar-
terback, Super Bowl rings,
wins 80-90% of his games,
offensive weapons all around
him to choose from, an offen-
sive line that protects him like
Fort Knox and a supermodel
wife to go home to every
night – and you want me to
bet against him???? Brady is
playing great, Wes Welker
will be his usual self, running
game is very strong; defense
is as strong as it has ever been
and Aaron Hernandez will
fill in adequately for Gronk.
It’s hard to pick against Ray
Lewis in what could be his
final game but New England
is just the better team; it’s as
simple as that. New England
31, Baltimore 10.
San Francisco – The NFC
Championship will be decid-
ed between the streaking
San Francisco 49ers and the
Atlanta Falcons, who come
off a thrilling victory over
the Seattle Seahawks. These
two dynamic offenses should
light it up Sunday in hope-
fully a great game to watch.
The 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick
has made me a real believ-
er. He can do it with his
arm and his legs. I think if
he wanted to last week, he
could have had 200-250 yards
rushing against the Packers.
The defense is as good as
there is in the NFL; Justin
Smith and the secondary shut
down Aaron Rodgers and the
Packers last week. Atlanta has
the home-field advantage but
if they fall behind early, this
one could be over early. Matt
Ryan and the offense of the
Falcons needs to score and
score big to have a shot in this
game; they have to limit their
turnovers and Roddy White
and Julio Jones need to have
huge games. The 49ers want
to hit you in the mouth early
and knock you off the ball
and let Frank Gore pile up
the yards. Atlanta is a good
team; however, let’s face it,
they should have lost last
week against the Seahawks
after blowing a 3-touchdown
lead. I don’t see them getting
it done this week; the 49ers
have their offense hitting on
all cylinders and the defense
(overall – 3rd in the NFL and
rush and pass defense 4th in
the NFL). I see Kaepernick
having another big night,
Gore getting his hard, hit-
you-in-the-mouth, 80-100
yards, Michael Crabtree,
Vernon Davis and Randy
Moss pressuring the Falcons’
defense all night long and
the 49ers defense led by LB
Aldon Smith causing Ryan
to have a very long night.

to the Falcons’ All Pro TE
Tony Gonzalez on a great
NFL career.

Teachers invited to
attend Basic Archery
Instruction Workshop
Workshop is free; pre-
registration is required
AKRON — Classroom teach-
ers and other members of school
communities who are interested
in becoming certified National
Archery in the Schools Program
(NASP) instructors are invited to
attend a free training workshop on
Jan. 29 in Mahoning County. The
Basic Archery Instructor Training
will take place at Western
Reserve High School in Berlin
Center from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Pre-registration is required and
those interested should call Ken
Fry, Division of Wildlife, at (330)
245-3030 or email Kenneth.Fry@
dnr.state.oh.us. NASP instructors
teach target archery to elemen-
tary, middle and high school stu-
dents, right in the school gym.
The curriculum covers archery,
safety, equipment, technique,
concentration skills and self-
improvement. When students
are introduced to the sport of
archery, the in-school educational
component is only the beginning.
Many NASP-participating schools
then start after-school programs
and archery teams. The NASP
program is rapidly growing and
gaining popularity among both
students and educators. It was
introduced into 17 Ohio schools
in 2004. More than 600 Ohio
schools now have teachers certi-
fied to instruct target archery.
Over 40,000 Ohio students par-
ticipated in NASP as part of their
physical education curriculum dur-
ing the 2011-12 school year. The
first NASP program was launched
in Kentucky in 2002. Since that
date, 47 U.S. states, Canada,
New Zealand, South Africa and
Australia have adopted it.
In association with this, ODNR
will host its seventh annual Ohio
NASP State Tournament 9 a.m.
to 9 p.m. March 1 in Columbus.
Sign-ups for the event opened
Jan. 3 and more than 1,000 stu-
dents were registered for the
event in less than
three hours.
NASP is a school
curriculum cur-
rently taught in 620
Ohio schools, mak-
ing Ohio the third-
largest NASP pro-
gram in the United
States. Instruction
takes place during
physical educa-
tion classes for a
2-week period and
is designed to teach international
target archery skills to students in
grades 4-12.
“ODNR hosts one of the larg-
est archery tournaments in the
world right here in Ohio,” said
ODNR Director James Zehringer.
“The NASP program not only
teaches students archery safety
but it has a lasting positive effect
on their confidence, concentra-
tion and self-esteem. We hope
archery can become a lifelong
activity for many of our students.”
During the 2011-12 academ-
ic year, more than 40,000 Ohio
students participated in NASP
as part of their physical educa-
tion curriculum. The tournament
has openings for 1,344 student
archers statewide to compete
in this competition and the tour-
nament is for schools that are
certified and participate in the
program.
The tournament is present-
ed in conjunction with the 2013
Arnold Sports Festival and will be
held at Veterans Memorial, North
Hall, located at 300 West Broad
St., Columbus, Ohio 43215.
Students with high-ranking
scores may be eligible for schol-
arships available through Hocking
College in Nelsonville. Individual
archers and teams may also
qualify for the NASP National
Championship, which will be
held May 10-11 at the Kentucky
Exposition Center in Louisville,
Ky.
Last year, Ohio resident Tyler
Finley, a ninth-grader at Maysville
High School, located in Zanesville,
participated in the 2012 NASP
National Championship and won
overall male archer.
Schools interested in learning
more about NASP may contact
Matt Neumeier, shooting sports
coordinator for the DOW, at 614-
265-6334 or at Matt.Neumeier@
dnr.state.oh.us. For more infor-
mation, visit: bit.ly/WgOtqQ.
Ohio was the 10th state to
participate in NASP. The ODNR
Division of Wildlife introduced
NASP in 2004 with 12 pilot
schools. Statewide expansion of
the program began in January
2005 and 2005-06 was the pro-
gram’s first full academic year.
Growth in NASP has continued
across the state and more than
half of Ohio’s 88 counties cur-
rently have at least one school
participating in NASP. Last year,
more than 1,300 students par-
ticipated in the 2012 Ohio NASP
State Tournament.

ODNR proposes dates for
fall hunting seasons to
Ohio Wildlife Council
COLUMBUS — The Ohio
Wildlife Council received poten-
tial dates for the upcoming fall
hunting seasons. DOW biologists
proposed that several traditional
hunting dates be utilized for 2013-
14.
Sept. 1 is the proposed start
date for Ohio’s fall squirrel and
dove hunting seasons. Upland
game hunting seasons for cotton-
tail rabbit, ring-necked pheasant
and bobwhite quail are proposed
to start Nov. 1, the first Friday in
November. Fox, raccoon, skunk,
opossum and weasel hunting and
trapping are proposed to start
Nov. 10.
Biologists proposed that cot-
tontail rabbit hunting restrictions
be removed in the snowshoe hare
protected area in Geauga and
Ashtabula counties. Remaining
snowshoe hares are still protect-
ed as a state-endangered species
and it remains illegal to kill them
in Ohio.
Proposed open counties for
quail hunting include Adams,
Athens, Brown, Butler, Clermont,
Clinton, Highland, Jackson,
Meigs, Montgomery, Pike, Preble,
Ross, Scioto, Vinton and Warren.
Youth upland game seasons
are proposed statewide for two
weekends: Oct. 19-20 and Oct.
26-27.
Proposed 2014 wild turkey
season dates are April 21-May
18, and the proposed 2014 youth
wild turkey season is April 19-20.
Proposals concerning Ohio’s
white-tailed deer and fall wild tur-
key hunting season will be heard
at the next Ohio Wildlife Council
meeting on Feb. 6.
Open houses will be held
March 2 at the state’s five wild-
life district offices, the Lake Erie
Fairport office and the Old Woman
Creek Reserve office in Huron to
give the public an opportunity to
view and discuss proposed hunt-
ing and trapping regulations with
wildlife officials. For Ohioans who
are unable to attend an open

Williams, Azarenka into 4th round at Aussie Open
By JOHN PYE
The Associated Press
M E L B O U R N E ,
Australia — Title favor-
ite Serena Williams and
defending champion
Victoria Azarenka advanced
in contrasting styles today
to the fourth round of the
Australian Open.
Williams, aiming for
a third consecutive major
title, recovered from a
break down in the second
set to win six straight games
and finish off a 6-1, 6-3 win
over Japan’s Ayumi Morita
in 66 minutes.
The 15-time major win-
ner even surprised herself
with another serve at 128
mph (207 kph), matching
her career fastest serve she
hit earlier in the tourna-
ment.
Top-ranked Azarenka
struggled to hold off injured
American Jamie Hampton
6-4, 4-6, 6-2 and didn’t help
herself with six double-
faults.
Hampton, who needed a
medical timeout for a lower
back problem before she
served out the second set
and winced in pain, fre-
quently on the verge of
tears, throughout the third,
still managed to hit 41 win-
ners to keep the Belarusian
under pressure.
After wasting two
set points on Azarenka’s
serve late in the second
set, Hampton had to leave
the court for nine minutes
to have treatment on her
back. Azarenka practiced
her backhands and serve
while Hampton was in the
locker room but the break
didn’t help her immediate-
ly. Hampton returned and
held in the next game and
needed more treatment in
the break at the end of the
set.
Even with the pain of
two herniated disks, the
23-year-old Hampton,
from Auburn, Ala., went
down swinging — making
47 unforced errors to go
with the winners that caught
Azarenka off guard.
Sensing an upset and
stirred by the obvious
signs of pain, the crowd on
Rod Laver Arena got right
behind the No. 63-ranked
Hampton, who had never
previously gone past the
second round at a major.
If results go according
to rankings, Azarenka and
Williams will meet in the
semifinals. Williams has
won the Australian Open
five times and is on a
19-match winning streak.
The 31-year-ol d
American will meet No. 14
Maria Kirilenko, who beat
No. 20-Yanina Wickmayer
7-6 (4), 6-3. Azarenka next
plays Elena Vesnina, who
beat 16th-seeded Roberta
Vinci of Italy 7-6 (4), 6-4.
Elsewhere, 2-time major
winner Svetlana Kuznetsova
advanced with a 6-2, 4-6,
6-3 win over Spain’s Carla
Suarez Navarro.
On Friday night, Maria
Sharapova celebrated with
extra exuberance after her
6-1, 6-3 win over Venus
Williams, her first victory
over the 7-time major win-
ner in a Grand Slam. Top-
ranked Novak Djokovic
took another step clos-
er to a third consecutive
Australian title, defeating
Radek Stepanek 6-4, 6-3,
7-5 in the third round.
Djokovic will play
Sunday against No. 15
Stanislas Wawrinka,
who knocked out the last
American man in the draw
with a 7-6 (6), 7-5, 6-4 win
over No. 20 Sam Querrey.
Fourth-seeded David
Ferrer finished off a 6-4,
6-2, 6-3 win over 2006
Australian finalist Marcos
Baghdatis with an ace,
advancing to a fourth-round
match against Japan’s Kei
Nishikori.
No. 5 Tomas Berdych
beat Austria’s Jurgen Melzer
6-3, 6-2, 6-2 and will next
play South Africa’s Kevin
Anderson. Djokovic’s
Serbian Davis Cup team-
mate Janko Tipsarevic
advanced to a meeting with
No. 10 Nicolas Almagro.
In an all-Serbian match
of two former No. 1 women,
2008 French Open champi-
on Ana Ivanovic beat Jelena
Jankovic 7-5, 6-3. She
moved into the fourth round
against Poland’s Angieszka
Radwanska, who is seeded
No. 4 and won her 12th
straight match — includ-
ing titles at Auckland and
Sydney — with a 6-3, 6-1
defeat of Britain’s Heather
Watson.
No. 5 Angelique Kerber
and No. 19 Ekaterina
Makarova will meet in
the fourth round. Kerber
stopped 17-year-old
American Madison Keys
6-2, 7-5 to celebrate her
25th birthday. Makarova
had a 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-4
win over 2007 Wimbledon
finalist Marion Bartoli.

Social activities great way to meet people
Dear Annie: I am 19
years old and afraid that
my brother is gay.
“James” recently
made a new friend at
work who is gay. He has
been going to
the library with
this new friend
and spending
the entire day
there doing
h o me wo r k .
James doesn’t
own a phone,
so it is hard
for my mother
to get a hold
of him.
S o me t i me s
he leaves
for work at 6 p.m. and
doesn’t come home until
9 the following morning,
making excuses that
he was at work. My
mother knows he’s
lying, because she calls
his job and they often
say he isn’t there. His
friend has left messages
on our home answering
machine that make
us all question their
relationship.
A few
days ago, my
mom called
me crying
hyst eri cal l y
b e c a u s e
James hadn’t
returned all
night after
an argument
in which she
asked if he
was gay. He
screamed at
her to never ask that
question again and said
that he is not gay.
I try to be open-
minded toward everyone
and don’t object if James
is gay. But my mother
was not brought up this
way. In her culture,
being gay is absolutely
unacceptable. If James
“came out,” my mother
would throw him out of
the house and disown
him. It would ruin our
family name. She even
once said she would
have to move away from
our hometown.
My brother has
always had trouble
making friends, and I
feel this latest friend
is someone who just
happens to accept
him for who he is. I
don’t believe James is
interested in men. But I
am worried for his sake.
What do I do? — Unsure
Dear Unsure:
Please don’t pressure
your brother. Having
a gay friend will not
change his sexual
orientation, and finding
someone who “accepts
him for who he is” is
not to be brushed aside
lightly. James needs to
navigate this in his own
way. You can mention
that he seems stressed
and let him know that if
he needs to talk, you are
available. You also can
give him the website for
PFLAG (pflag.org) just
in case he should find it
useful.
Dear Annie: You
recently printed a letter
from a sociable man
in his mid-50s who
is having difficulty
making new friends.
My husband and I are
in a similar predicament
now that the kids are out
of the house.
Your suggestion to
find activities is a good
start, but the reality is
that people form true
friendships over shared
common experiences.
Volunteer activity,
work, team sports (like
bowling or a walking
group) and religious
groups provide the most
opportunity for forming
friendships over an
extended period of time.
But I wish you
would have specifically
addressed our age group.
Perhaps the “sandwich
generation” burdens are
part of the problem, but
we don’t see significant
numbers of people our
age anywhere except
restaurants and church.
Please provide more
guidance regarding
friendships for people
over 40. — Prime of
Life
Dear Prime: You
have already noted that
activities where you
see the same people
repeatedly provide the
best opportunities to
create friendships, and
once you are out of
school, your age doesn’t
really matter. Besides
bowling leagues and
volunteer work, we also
recommend book clubs,
gourmet clubs, choirs,
community theater and
civic organizations.
Determine what your
interests are, and then
look for local groups or
check meetup.com.
Dear Annie: May
I weigh in on baby
showers for second and
third babies?
When she was
pregnant with her
second child, my lovely
daughter-in-law was
given a “sprinkle.” Her
friends brought frozen
dinners, cooked and
labeled. All she had to
do was defrost and heat.
What a blessing for
a new mom, especially
one with other small
children. The meals
lasted for weeks. —

Saturday, January 19, 2013 The Herald – 9
Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
www.delphosherald.com
SUNDAY, JANUARY 20, 2013
Your chart indicates that in the
year ahead, you are likely to be far
more fortunate with joint endeavors
than independent ventures. Keep this
in mind if you find something good
you’d like to get off the ground.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Even if you feel time is running
out for getting done what needs
doing, keep a cool head, especially
regarding complex endeavors or
situations that must move at a
measured pace.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
-- Should you find yourself in an
uncomfortable position of your own
making, don’t make matters worse
by succumbing to the temptation to
blame others.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) --
It behooves you to be watchful over
your prized possessions -- lock your
car even when it’s parked in your
driveway. The unusual could happen,
and you should take precautions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
-- Keep your impulsive tendencies
in check, especially when it comes
to sensitive career matters. There’s
a strong chance you could create an
otherwise avoidable complication.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
-- Instead of doing the smart thing
and bringing a problem out in the
open, you might make matters harder
by suffering in silence. You can’t
resolve what you won’t face.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) --
Friends will appreciate you more if
you make some kind of effort to hew
to the will of the majority. Regardless
of how much better your way is, go
with the flow.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It’s
important to keep a sense of fair play
in all your one-on-one relationships,
especially when involved with
people who are being unreasonable.
Set an example that they will want to
follow.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-- Getting along with co-workers
might be a bit tougher than usual,
so be careful. By being too bossy
or arrogant, you would only shatter
whatever structure has been holding
things together.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
If you find yourself involved with
someone who, in your opinion, is
behaving too wildly, protect your
position at all times. Don’t go down
with him or her.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- There is a good chance that some
petty annoyances could easily get
blown out of proportion by your mate
or other family members if things are
not handled well. Keep a cool head.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) -- First and foremost, be safety-
conscious at all times when handling
unfamiliar tools. If you find matters
too much to handle, don’t hesitate to
turn the entire project over to another.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- You need to place more importance
on something of an aesthetic nature
than you do on anything material. If
you do the opposite, the price you’ll
pay will be severe.

MONDAY, JANUARY 21, 2013
Although your financial and
career prospects might take separate
paths, they will each do very well
and, as time passes, the probability
of them coming into powerful
alignment is high.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) -- An important lesson you
learned from past experience can
be effectively applied in handling a
testy, current development. Use it!
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
-- When it comes to a project or
endeavor that you think can be
complemented by another person,
don’t hesitate to team up. Doing so
will produce superior results for both
of you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) --
Because of your ability to accurately
assess your alternatives, your
decisions should work out to your
ultimate benefit. You can trust your
conclusions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) --
Both small and large opportunities
could yield substantial returns,
mostly because of your ability to
skillfully manage anything that
comes your way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
-- Don’t hesitate to assume greater
control over a joint involvement
that is not working out to your
satisfaction, if you believe you can
turn things around. Your partner will
be pleased.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-- It might surprise you when others
start to confide in you, but they’ll
only do so when they realize that
you’re the one who seems to know
how to handle all kinds of problems,
including theirs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Adopt
a hopeful, positive attitude today
regarding your newest endeavor and
start moving toward it the moment
you realize the view over the horizon
is beginning to look particularly
good.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-- All the key elements are trending
in your favor at this time, making
you far more financially fortunate
than usual. Ride the wave while it’s
breaking.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
Bits and pieces that wouldn’t fit
together previously could start to
come together. As soon as you begin
to see the entire picture, put your
plans into action.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) --
If you go out of your way to ensure
that you handle things correctly for
another, there’s a strong possibility
that you’ll be asked to participate in
something big and successful.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) -- Certain people with whom
you have a partnership arrangement
could start to play vital roles in your
affairs. Do everything in your power
to keep these alliances agreeable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -- The chances of fulfilling an
ambitious objective are likely to be
far greater now than they will be in
the future. Don’t delay anything that
can be accomplished immediately.
