Vantage to begin solar energy project
By LINDSAY MCCOY DHI Correspondent VAN WERT - Solar energy is finally becoming a reality for Vantage Career Center as the Board of Education approved the longawaited contracts with Solar Planet. The agreement will remain in place for 25 years. “The discussion took much longer than thought but was time well spent,” said Superintendent Staci Kaufman. Surveying will be completed this week with the array set to be placed on the north acreage. The 1-megawatt unit will consist of about 4,200 solar panels. Typically, the operation will provide at 750 kilowatts. Vantage will own the land but Solar Planet will own the array. Vantage will be purchasing energy for slightly cheaper than the regular rate. After 10 years, Vantage has the option to purchase the array and will be offered this agreement again

Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869
Vantage on Wednesday and students had the opportunity to choose and visit two programs. Over 700 students were in attendance. March 6 is the application deadline but students have already come in to sign up for their desired program. Tentative acceptance letters will be sent out until students meet their sophomore requirements. OGT testing will be held in March with over 100 students expected to take the test at Vantage. Many teachers have offered their personal time to help students outside of the classroom for this important test. OGT documents can now be opened at home for students to do additional practice. District Treasurer Lori Davis reported that the school is still under budget on the construction project. Around $600,000 of excess money is expected, which will be used towards smaller, auxiliary See VANTAGE, page 3

The cost of that priceless bundle of joy
This is part two of a two-part series on the cost of starting a family. By Monica Gerdeman DHI Correspondent PUTNAM COUNTY — From “Here Comes the Bride,” to hear comes the baby, a pregnancy can cause several unexpected expenses. From the day parents begin to try having a baby, the costs can become very overwhelming. From vitamins and minerals to insurance coverage, the price of that priceless bundle of joy can be very expensive. One added expense of a pregnancy can be maternity clothing. Clothing can be purchased at a wide range of prices and may not be necessary at the beginning of your pregnancy. “Unfortunately, I did have to purchase new clothes. I had a hard time doing this because it is something that will only be worn for a few months. I tried to get creative when buying maternity clothes so I wouldn’t have to buy too much. For two pairs of pants, three tops and leggings, I spent about $100,” said expectant mother Renee Neidert. “I did buy a pregnancy band, which allows me to wear some of my ‘non-maternity’ pants during pregnancy. I am really glad I made that purchase because I my closest family and friends and received almost everything I registered for. Had I not had a baby shower, I would have spent thousands of dollars on the essentials for my baby,” said Neidert. “Between just the bed and bedding we registered for, having a baby shower saved us nearly $700. Now add in other items like bottles, diapers, changing pads, changing pad covers, car seats, strollers, pack ‘n’ plays and you can imagine how much money is saved just by having a shower. I really don’t think there is any other option for first-time parents; for the amount of items you need for one baby, a shower is absolutely essential!” The new insurance plans may also be a bit surprising. According to Greg Brown with Nationwide Insurance in Ottawa, there are several questions to be aware of before becoming pregnant and also things to ask during the pregnancy. “Keeping informed is the best advice I have; feel free to ask as many questions you can think of to your insurance company. You don’t want to get to your first appointment and find out it’s not covered for one reason or another,” said Brown. “I am very lucky to have insurance through my job and my husband,” continued Neidert. “I know things will get more expensive for us once

Dr. Jessica Mohr, above, of Jeffery-Mohr Family Dentistry in Van Wert, visited Franklin Elementary School Friday to impart dental wisdom. In addition to telling the children to brush at least twice a day, Mohr gave an explanation for how cavities develop. “Teeth are supposed to be hard. A cavity is when a tooth gets soft,” she said. “Teeth get soft because of sugar bugs (plaque). Everyone has them and sugar bugs eat sugar. So you want to make sure you brush before bed especially because you don’t want to let sugar bugs sit in your mouth all night, do you?” Dr. Mohr and Dr. Jeffrey will visit 14 area schools for a total of 1,600 students and are holding a coloring contest. The first-place winner will receive a $100 gift card with second place receiving $50 and third, $25. All three winners will also win a free large pizza. (Delphos Herald/ Stacy Taff)

have been able to continue wearing my ‘normal’ clothes throughout my pregnancy. The pregnancy band was probably right around $15-$20; it is definitely something I would recommend to other pregnant women. I believe that is one purchase that saved me money in the long run.” Another place to check for maternity clothing is garage sales. If the clothes are needed in the middle of winter, most communities have digital garage sales on Facebook, where you can find all kinds of baby items and clothing. As a first-time mother, Neidert has relied on family and friends as well as her baby shower for most of her supplies. “I cannot even begin to explain how much money a baby shower saves; I had a baby shower with
we actually go into labor but right now, we haven’t spent much at all on doctor/hospital bills. For about the first seven months, I was at the doctor once a month for checkups. Within those several months, I had blood work and testing done. Between my primary and secondary insurance, most of the costs have been taken care of. I am now at the point in my pregnancy that I am going to the doctor every two weeks; in just four weeks, I will be having weekly visits. I don’t anticipate these will cost me much, either. I know I will probably be in for a bit of a shock when I get the bill for labor/delivery and recovery for both me and my baby but as of today, I am very thankful for my insurance because I have not spent much out-of-pocket.” As the health field continues to change, Brown expects insurance policies to do the same. “Even if you ask the questions today and do not plan to become pregnant for several months, I would make sure you re-visit those same questions. You never know what is going to change,” added Brown. “Another thing to think about is life insurance. An infant only costs between $10-$20 (monthly) to insure with a reasonable amount of wholeSee BUNDLE, page 3

The best of intentions ...
Here it is halfway through February already. There are still several things that went on my to-do list earlier in the year yet to be checked off. As I write this, I am surrounded by paper. It’s on my left, on my right, all around me. Arrrg! I cleared out a file drawer last January and had the best intentions of cleaning up some but now all I see are bigger piles of agendas and the like. Yikes! I better get busy. Time just seems to slip away. I start working on something and I tell myself I’ll get to the filing when I’m done and then something else comes up and then the phone rings and then someone asks me a question and the next thing I know, I’m jetting out the door and it didn’t get done. It’s probably going to take a Saturday or Sunday afternoon to accomplish this task. I’ll just pencil that right in. I make a list, sometimes daily, with the most important things I want to accomplish at the top. Well, my messy desk doesn’t seem to make it anywhere on that list. Maybe I’ll have a few minutes after I get this column done to tuck a few things away in a file. Then again, probably not. Let’s check that list for Monday. Hmmm. I don’t believe I see filing on there at all. How

odd. It needs done. Why isn’t it on the list? Things seem to go that way at home, too. For example: I have two drawers at home with old paid bills, letters, cards, etc. I finally got that all-important “Round-tuit” and cleaned one out. I sorted and filed and filled shoe boxes and shredded — and repeat. Now it is home to my pajamas and where they were is now where my purses are and where they were is Christmas stuff I don’t want in the basement. Whew. The second drawer? Don’t ask. There was a sign on my mother’s desk at the Marathon station and subsequently at the garage on Pierce Street. It read, “Don’t touch my mess! I know where everything is.” For the most part, the same is true of my desk at work. I can usually lay my hands on something in pretty short order. Sometimes, not so much. Hey. Where did that list go?

Ohio Amish beard-cutting ringleader gets 15 years
By THOMAS J. SHEERAN The Associated Press CLEVELAND — Denying he ran an Amish cult, the 67-year-old ringleader of hairand beard-cutting attacks on fellow members of his faith in Ohio was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison, while family members convicted of carrying out his orders got one to seven years. The judge said the defendants had violated the constitutional rights protecting religious practice that had also benefited them as Amish. Authorities had prosecuted the attacks as a hate crime. Before his sentencing, Samuel Mullet Sr. told the judge he had been accused of running a cult. Mullet, his ankles in chains and a white beard down to mid-chest, said that if his community is seen as a cult, “Then I’m going to take the punishment for everybody.” The 10 men and six women were convicted last year in five attacks in Ohio Amish communities in 2011. The government said the attacks were retaliation against Amish who had defied or denounced Mullet’s authoritarian hold over the splinter group he started in 1995. The case has opened a rare window to the lives of the insular Amish, who shun many facets of modern life and are deeply religious. Amish believe the Bible instructs women to let their hair grow long and men to grow beards once they marry. Cutting it would be shameful and offensive. “The victims were terrorized and traumatized,” U.S. District Judge Dan Aaron Polster said, noting that the same constitution that exempts them from jury service and permission to leave school at 14 was turned against the victims. “Each of you has received the benefits of that First Amendment.” With relatives of victims and his family sitting on opposite sides of the public gallery, Mullet said he has lived his life trying to help others. “That’s been my goal all my life,” Mullet said to a hushed courtroom, with his fellow defendants and their attorneys sitting at four defense tables and filling the jury box. “I’m not going to be here much longer,” said Mullet, who didn’t elaborate on any health issues. The government had asked for a life sentence for Mullet, while the defense asked for two years or less. Some defendants tearfully offered to take the brunt of

the blame and punishment on behalf of Mullet or their spouses. Addressing the judge one by one, they said there would be no more beard-cutting attacks. Freeman Burkholder, the 32-year-old husband of a Mullet niece and father of eight children, apologized to the judge. “I won’t do it again,” he said. Anna Miller, 33, married to a Mullet nephew and mother of six, also apologized, turning to relatives of victims as she said, “I’m sorry, it won’t happen again.” Like most of the women, she was sentenced to one year. Federal prosecutor Bridget Brennan urged the judge to punish Mullet adequately. “He is a danger to this community,” she said. “He is capable of controlling 15 defendants.” Brennan repeated key testimony against Mullet and said he has remained the leader of his eastern Ohio community despite being locked up since his arrest in late 2011. U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach, whose office directed the prosecution, said he was confident the law would withstand a constitutional challenge. As for Mullet, “I think the sentence he got was harsh; I think it was appropriately harsh,” Dettelbach said. “Mr. Mullet’s conduct in court today reiterated yet again his utter failure to respect the rule of law and his utter lack of remorse.” The jury had sided with prosecutors’ arguments that the defendants should be found guilty of a hate crime because religious differences brought about the attacks. The judge said the defendants have two weeks to file appeals of their sentences or convictions. Defense attorneys have indicated such appeals are likely.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A group of blue collar University of Utah workers will split $1 million in lottery winnings thanks to a set of keys left in a truck and an ornery little dog named “Stella.” Thirteen years after playing the same set of numbers every month in the Idaho lottery, the group of 33 workers who work on heating and cooling university buildings hit pay dirt when Steve Hughes left his truck running to keep his dog “Stella” warm while he went inside to a gas station near Lava Hot Springs, Idaho, on Jan. 6. Utah has no lottery. When he returned to his truck, his miniature pinscher had locked him out by putting her paw on the manual lock. Hughes, 29, planned to buy the ticket elsewhere, but instead he had his girlfriend buy it there while he tried to open the door with a slim jim. He eventually coached Stella to put her paws on the electronic window button in the back seat, allowing Hughes to get in the car. What seemed like an annoying delay that day turned out to be serendipitous when the group discovered Wednesday night that they had won second prize in the Idaho Powerball. Hughes thought it was a joke — looking for the camera filming the prank. “It was pretty exciting,” said Richard Tison, 50, the supervisor. Each get about $20,000 after taxes, or as Hughes said, Hughes’ dog, “Stella,” didn’t get to go on Friday’s “party bus” but the lucky winners had previously made sure she was rewarded. “She got a couple of big surprises when I got home,” Hughes said. “She got 18-inch rawhide bones.”

Ohio colleges, universities launch new formula
COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s public colleges and universities got a peek Friday at how they will fair under a newly forged agreement on state funding that encourages collaboration and emphasizes student graduation over enrollment. State projections indicate most institutions will receive increases in the first year of Gov. John Kasich’s proposed $63.2 billion, two-year budget, with 17 of the state’s 61 universities, branch campuses and community colleges expected to receive cuts. State higher education funding rises overall in the budget’s first year, about 2 percent to $1.78 billion. State Budget Director Tim Keen said one new element of the formula is that it will be based on average graduation figures over a three-year period, while past set-asides for certain campuses are being phased out. Bruce Johnson, president of the Inter-University Council of Ohio, which represents Ohio’s 14 public fouryear universities, said the approach carries inherent risk for the institutions but they understand that more Ohioans need to get degrees for the state to succeed. The state’s graduation rate is about 25 percent. “Of course, you want higher rates of graduation because to some degree resources are wasted when a student attempts to complete a degree and fails,” said Johnson, Ohio’s former lieutenant governor and development director. “But the most important issue for the state’s economy is that the total number of graduates goes up.” Ohio State University is projected to receive a 3 percent increase under the plan, with three branch campuses experiencing cuts. OSU President E. Gordon Gee helped work out the funding deal, which Kasich has praised for its innovation. Kent State and Cleveland State would see increases of more than 5 percent, Wright State of 3.5 percent and others smaller increases. Overall, five universities, seven branch campuses and five community colleges are expected to receive cuts. Bowling Green would see a reduction in state funding of 4.2 percent under the new formula, with lesser cuts headed to Shawnee State (2.4 percent) and Central State (2.1 percent). The universities of Akron and Toledo would see cuts of less than 1 percent.
On the banks of yesteryear ...
Working at the museum is always a learning experience and we recently had a very fortunate learning experience. As we were sorting through artifacts to display, we found an old iron piece that appeared to be a piece of junk. Fortunately, our newest Trustee, Steve Dorsten, identified the piece as a part of a canal gate. The part looks something like a very large square nut with a bolt shaft in the middle. As it turns out, this is the bottom pivot of a lock gate. Further research has led to the identification of more parts and pieces of canal lock gates in our procession. Over the years, people have donated artifacts of which the identity or use isn’t quite clear. Maybe just a bit of information is supplied by the donor, written down and then shared with other trustees and knowledgeable persons. Sometimes the item is fully identified and put in a display and then there are times when further research is needed. What a delight it is to identify a piece of Delphos history! Since the price of metal has gone up so has the loss of what might be priceless pieces of history. As you are going through treasures you have acquired from family or friends, always get as much information as possible so as not to discard an item of importance to your family or town history. If you have no interest in the history, find a person or museum that would truly appreciate these items

LACCA will continue to provide utility bill assistance through March 31
Information submitted LIMA — As winter temperatures continue to drop, LACCA (Lima/Allen Council on Community Affairs) is working to provide relief for those who have had their gas or electric shut completely off, or are at imminent risk of having a utility disconnected, or bulk customers who have less than 25 percent fuel in their tank. LACCA can also pay up to $175 for the repair of a furnace. The assistance program began Nov 1 and has been helping families struggling to keep up with their energy bills, by applying for LACCA’s Winter Crisis Program (WCP) through the federally funded Ohio Development Services Agency to receive up to $175 for a regulated utility, $450 for a nonregulated utility, $350 for coal or wood, and $750 for propane or fuel oil. To be eligible, families must reside in Allen County, earn a household income at or below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines: Family of 4: $46,100 annually - $11,525 13-wks
and pass them on, with any pertinent information, for posterity. The Delphos Canal Museum appreciates any and all artifacts relating to the canal, town history and, of course, the townspeople who make up our unique story. Mark your calendars for Sunday, March 17, 2013 which is the date of this year’s Canal Commission “Boatman’s Breakaway” dinner fundraiser, a good choice for food and fun on St. Patrick’s Day.

Authorities say the boy fell through the ice of a pond at an apartment complex on the city’s southeast side Thursday night. Before rescuers arrived, 30-year-old James R.

life insurance. This may be something to also look into to make sure your child is insured into his/her early years. Whole-life insurance policies last their entire life, as the rates do not change. This can help your child in the future if the policy is continued.” Overall, the expense of having a baby can be overwhelming. Parents-to-be need to keep in mind to ask the correct questions to their insurance company and they can never ask too many questions. “There are some obvious big expenses to being pregnant and having a baby but if you are willing to do a little research and are willing to receive hand-me-down items, you can save a lot of money. My advice would be to keep an open mind and to seek help whenever you need it. There are a lot of people and programs targeted towards helping families,” Neidert finished.

“Modesty is the conscience of the body.” — Honore de Balzac, French author and dramatist (1799-1850)
G6 Bernard Gerhard Recker c 1807/08 – 1879, was the sixth child of Johann Heinrich Redecker/Recker and Anna Maria Linckemeyer who came to America in 1838. Bernard was also known as George B. Reacker. He married Mary Theresa Strothman, c 1810 -1871. Her last name was also spelled Hortmann and Hrotman. They lived in Ottawa Township, Putnam County and were farmers. Their Children were: 6-1 John Henry, 1839, died young 6-2 Bernard Gerhard II 1841 – 1842 6-3 Bernard Gerhard III 1844 – 1923 He used the name Gerhard, when young and George, when older. George married 1872 to Mary Clara Nievermann, 1854 – l932. They were parents of 12 children. 6-4 Mary Theresia Recker Erhart 1847 – 1925 married 1867 to Andrew Henry Erhart 1840 -1906.Mary Theresia and Andrew Henry were parents of 11 children. G-7 Johannes Andreas Recker b 1809 in Hitzhausen. Andrew landed in New York in 1830, worked his way west finding a job on the canal that ran from Toledo to Cincinnati. They worked from sun-up to sun-down and had to provide their own shovel. For this they received $1.00 per day. If they owned their own wheelbarrow they received an extra 25 cents per day. Andrew first married in 1836 in Glandorf to Mary Ann Monch (Moench). She was born c 1804, while he was engaged in helping dig the canal a few miles south of Spencerville. Mary Ann was buried in an unmarked grave in that area. Glandorf church records show they had a daughter, Elizabeth, who was born and died in 1836. According to an old county history, Mary Ann Monch left a son by the name of Frederick Wilhelm, who was adopted by Andreas. This son took the surname of Recker. In 1837 Andreas married Mary Ann Hesseling of Glandorf. She was born in 1820 in Lingen, near Osnabruck. Andrew continued to work on the canal. While living in Cincinnati, they lost a 2-yearold baby, who is buried somewhere in Cincinnati. This most likely was their son, John Herman. After Andreas’ work on the canal was completed they returned to Delphos where he knew there was good farm land to be had and they would be near Mary Ann’s family. They made their home in Jennings Township. Frederick Wilhelm/ William Recker (adopted son of Andreas) was born 1833/35 in New York and died in 1877 at Fort Jennings. In an old census was found a William Recker, b 1833, who had a wife Barbara (b 1838) and lived in Jennings Township. According to the 1870 census Frederick “Frank” W. Recker was born in New York and his wife Barbara was born in Holland. F. William was stated to be a son of Andrew Recker. (Since Andrew listed the children of F. William in his last will, Jeanette included them and their children. In Section 7-1a. Andrew died in 1882 and was survived by his second wife, who bore him six children. (Frederick Wilhelm has everyone confused) 7-1a Another listing of Frederick Wilhelm/William 1833/35 – 1877 has him married to Barbara Fischbach, who was born in Etelbrick, Luxembourg. F.W. is buried at Fort Jennings. After Frederick Wilhelm’s death Barbara married John Joseph Menke. To Frank William and Barbara were born five children. 7-1a-1 Susanna Recker 1861 – 1919, marred in 1878 to George “Henry” Ebbeskotte at Delphos. They had eight children. 7-1a 2 Mary Barbara Recker 1863 – 1912 married in 1890 to Anton Gerweck 1864 – 1953 at Beatrice, Nebraska. They had three children. 7-1a-3 William John Recker 1865 – 1920 married 1891 to Catherine Elizabeth Wieging 1873 -1920. (She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Wieging). The 1900 census of Jennings Township lists William John’s birthday as 1867 and Catherine’s at 1875. They were parents of four children. 7-1a-4 Frank Joseph Recker 1869-1943, married 1897 to Anna Marie Stegeman c 18751880, died c 1912. They lived at Muntanna, Ohio and were parents of six children. 7-1a-5 Augustus Recker 1871 – 1954, married 1899 to Mary Christine Bruskotter 1878- 1959 at Fort Jennings. They were parents of seven children. Julius (1908-1986), a son of Augustus Recker (1908 – 1986) married 1937 to Lucille Helen Gerdeman 1910 -1983. She was the daughter of Joseph and Catherine (Steffan) Gerdeman. They made their home at Fort Jennings and were parents of three children. Many descendants of this family lived at Fort Jennings. The Recker quads (three girls and one boy) who played for the Arlington basketball teams, State Champion Girls and State Boys Runner-up in 2012 were said to be members of this family. G-7 Andrew and Mary Ann Hesseling had six children. 7-1 John Herman Recker b 1837 was not listed in the 1850 census. Apparently he was the son who died in Cincinnati (1839-40) 7-2 Catherine Recker Stauterman 1842-1925 married John Stauterman. Catherine was buried at Delphos. John and Catherine had three children. 7-2-1 William Stauterman 1874 – 1958 married Anna Metzger 1880-1966. They had two daughters. 7-2-2 John Andrew Stauterman 1878-1951 married in 1900 to Christine Miller 1880-1963 They had three daughters.

Surnames of some of their descendants are Lammers, Pohlman, Hemker, Warnecke, Wolf and Altman. 7-3 Mary “Anna Marie” Recker born at Glandorf 1846 – 1933 married at Delphos in 1865 to William H. Elwer, b 1840 -1902. They were parents of six children: 7-3-1 Catherine Elwer 1868 – 1956, married 1889 to Frederick Grone.

One Year Ago • Jefferson FCCLA will observe National FCCLA Week next week. The main focus of the week is a service project that includes the collections of aluminum can tabs and items for the Ronald McDonald House in Toledo. 25 Years Ago — 1988 • Dale Ricker, 35, of Fort Jennings, will be the Ohio Jaycees’ representative at the U.S. Jaycees 32nd National Outstanding Young Farmers Awards Congress (NOYF) to be held February 25-28 in Orlando, Fla. Ricker is among nominees from 40 states who will be vying for the honor of being named one of four National Outstanding Young Farmers for 1988. • It was something no wanted to happen. But it happened Monday night at Jefferson Middle School auditorium. What occurred was a 120-41 destruction of the Ohio City Warriors in which Jefferson set a school scoring record. Jamey Grogg led Jefferson in scoring (23) and rebounds (11) before going to the bench for the night midway through the third quarter. • Convoy Lions Club will celebrate its 40th charter night Feb. 13 at the Hotel Marsh, Van Wert. Esten Fortney, president, is urging past members and/or officers to participate in the celebration. Special recognition will be given to charter members who are still active – Rex Hanley, William Hilton, Don Lare and Cliff Schaadt. 50 Years Ago — 1963 • Contributions to the 1963 National Foundation Mothers March drive have grown to the sum of $1,473.74, according to Dorothy J. Whitaker, chairman for this year’s campaign. The crease over the first amount announced is due to funds contributed to members of the young Farmers Association in the Delphos-Landeck rural area. The Young Farmers drive was under the direction of Robert McBride, vocational-agriculture teacher at Delphos Jefferson and was delayed because of weather conditions and icy roads. • Sparked by Captain Gene Klaus, the Delphos St. John’s Blue Jays banged out another high scoring win Friday night, defeating the Crestview Knights, 91-60 at Convoy. Klaus contributed 23 points to his teammates’ cause and Jim Carder added 18. Dan “Clyde” Grothous and Jerry Carder were in the double digits with 13 and 10. • Twenty-two members of the Good Shepherd Group of St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church were present for the February meeting held this week in the parish hall. Ruth Horine was in charge of the lesson which was entitled “Christ Is Our Redeemer.” Vera Loetz gave the information on the sewing for New Guinea. 75 Years Ago — 1938 • Masters in the art of checker playing will gather on Thursday night at Vogt and Eickholt’s East Second Street, to give local checker “wizards” a chance to see just how the game should be played. Perry Gray of Rushmore, one of Ohio’s best known players, is in charge of arrangements for the tournament. Some of the best players in the district will match their skill with Gray and many other masters. • The Jefferson junior high cagers defeated the Bockey School team last Tuesday afternoon at Jefferson auditorium by a score of 20 to 8. The Bockey Boys practice under extreme difficulties and have a good team considering that it is their first year of play. They practice on the school yard and with a large rubber ball instead of the regulation basketball. • The Society of Books, a club composed of Jefferson librarians, held a social meeting in the home economics room of the school. Mabel Rogers, faculty member, is head librarian. The members are Jane Deffenbaugh, Vera Strayer, Harriet Baer, Betty Rinehart, Jeanetta Kill, Mary Claypool, Cecilia Miller, Mary Brenner, Esther Matson, Caroline Dukes, Dorothy Mundy, Wanda Yoder, Luella Miller, Eleanor Davis, Mae Rauschart and Evelyn Pothast.

returned to Landeck, “No place between Chicago and here has as nice as entry signs as Landeck does.” This group is proud of the signage they erected and are thankful to local citizens for their support. Landeck community garage sales are being planned for this coming summer. An exact date has not been set but late July or August have been suggested. Five sections of fence formerly use around the Landeck Cemetery have been procured.

The purpose of this group is to keep Landeck looking good so anyone who is interested in this goal may attend the meetings. The next meeting is at 7:30 p.m. on April 1 at S & K Landeck Tavern.
No one is quite sure what Medusa is. We know she’s small; we know she’s ridiculous, but that’s about it. She might be part Ewok. This 3-yearold diva isn’t too proud to let loose the occasional tiny growl or romp with toys. Medusa will need work with socialization, as her manners are lacking.

Big Green notch 3rd PCL win over Pirates
By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald firstname.lastname@example.org OTTOVILLE — Friday night, Continental and head coach Kevin Homier brought the Pirates to the L.W. Heckman Gymnasium for a Putnam County League matchup with the Big Green of counterpart Todd Turnwald. The game was a very close contest throughout three quarters of play but the Big Green outscored the Pirates 10-2 in the fourth quarter to seal the PCL win 37-28 over the visitors. The Pirates jumped out quickly to begin the game behind a 5-0 run that saw 6-5 senior Chaz Slattman get the first points of the game with a layup in the lane, followed up by a deep 3-ball from the left side by 5-8 senior Tyler Dockery. The Big Green came right back with the next four points of the game with senior Derek Schimmoeller and sophomore Brandt Landin connecting on shots in the lane. Landin led the Big Green with five points in the quarter and was the beneficiary of a beautiful alley-oop pass from Schimmoeller for two of his total that sparked the Big Green rally in the quarter. The Big Green got their first lead of the game at 8-7 at the 2:28 mark on a basket by Landin; however, the Pirates outscored the home squad 7-1 the remainder of the period to take a 14-9 lead after one quarter of play. Senior Justin Halliwill led the Pirates with five points in the quarter. The second quarter found the Big Green turning up the heat on the Pirates defensively and it paid off, holding the Pirates to only three points — a Dockery 3-pointer — in the quarter. On the other hand, the Big Green connected on eight points behind two 3-pointers by senior Ryan Honigford and sophomore Tyler Roby off the bench. Landin rounded out the Big Green’s scoring with two points and a team-high seven for the first half. As both teams headed to the locker room, the game was tied 17-17. Turnwald was not surprised with how close the score was at halftime and throughout the game: “I knew this was going to be a hard-fought contest with these guys. You know Coach Homier is going to have his kids ready to play and you know it’s going to be a physical contest. In games like this tonight, it comes down to who can execute and put the ball in the hoop. Tonight, we were just able to do more and connect on some big shots to come away with the win.” The third quarter saw the Pirates looking to go inside to their big guy in Slattman. The plan paid off as he scored seven of his team’s nine points in the quarter. The Big Green again used the 3-ball to stay with the Pirates as Derek Schimmoeller and Roby both connected on deep threes and Ryan Honigford and Luke Schimmoeller added two points apiece. After three quarters of play, the Big Green held a narrow 27-26 lead over the Pirates. The Pirates’ downfall came in the last quarter of play when they could only score two points (Slattman) and committed seven turnovers in the final eight minutes of play. The Big Green took advantage of the lack of scoring from the Pirates by outscoring the visitors 10-2 in the final period behind four points from junior Luke Schimmoeller and three apiece from Honigford and Derek Schimmoeller, giving the home squad their third PCL win of the year. The Big Green (8-11, 3-3 PCL) was led in scoring by Roby and Honigford with 10 points. The home team was 14-32 (44%) from the field, 3-6 (50%) from the foul line, hauled in 18 rebounds and committed 15 turnovers. Turnwald has pleased to see Ryan Honigford get back on track: “It’s great to see Ryan get back with us in the scoring column. The kid definitely deserves it. Shots haven’t been falling for him, so it’s nice to see the lid come off the basket for him tonight.” The Pirates (5-12, 0-5 PCL) were led in scoring by Slattman
By NICK JOHNSON DHI Correspondent email@example.com DELPHOS — The Allen East Mustangs galloped into Jefferson Middle School on Friday night to take on the Wildcats in Northwest conference play. It was a very exciting Friday night at The Stage as the Wildcats won by a score of 69-66 over the Mustangs. Allen East got on the board quickly with baskets from Logan Rex and Tanner Richardson. Richardson also knocked down a free throw to give the Mustangs a 5-0 lead. Jefferson got a 3-point play from Austin Jettinghoff to make the score 5-3. The Wildcats used good foul shooting all night to keep the game close; they went 9-9 from the line in the first quarter. The Mustangs were too much for Jefferson in the first period as Richardson added four more points and Bryden Davis knock down a basket to make the score 14-11, Allen East, at the end of the first stanza. The Mustangs continued to ride the big guy Richardson as he dropped 10 points in the second and Clay Plaugher added a basket for good measure. The Wildcats knocked down three 3-pointers: one from Zack Ricker and two from Jettinghoff, including a lastsecond buzzer-beating long ball; to send the game into the break with the score 28-23, Mustangs. In the third quarter, Allen East extended its lead to 11 points with 3-pointers from Marcos Quintero and Plaugher to make the score 37-26, Mustangs. Jefferson fought back with a 3-point play from Ricker and a layup from Dalton Hicks (career-high 10 boards) to cut into the Allen East lead. After five straight points from Jefferson freshman Trey Smith, the Mustang lead was gone and the score was tied at 41-41. Both teams battled back and forth for much of the third period but a late layup from Plaugher gave Allen East a 48-47 lead at the end of three periods. The fourth quarter started with a bang as Jettinghoff drained a

3-pointer to give the lead back to the Wildcats and make the score 50-48. With the score knotted at 54-54, Jefferson’s Ross Thompson got a 3-point play to give them the lead. Later on in the period, a Smith 3-pointer made the score 66-60, Jefferson, with less than two minutes to play. With one minute left in the game, Allen East got a 3-point play from Plaugher to cut the Wildcat lead to 66-64. The Mustangs then got a layup from Matt Shuey to cut the Jefferson lead down to 67-66. The Wildcats iced the game from the foul line as Smith knocked down two foul shots to give Jefferson the final margin of victory. Jefferson had two scorers in double figures as Smith had a game- and career-high 29 points and Jettinghoff added a careerhigh 18 points on the night. Allen East had three scorers with double-digit points as Richardson had 21 points, Plaugher 20 and Shuey 12. “Lot of adversity on both sides. Players playing through foul trouble; they had lineups on the floor they aren’t used to and we had lineups on the floor that we aren’t used to,” Jefferson coach Marc Smith noted. “Our kids made some plays; I thought our pressure bothered them and made them play faster than they actually wanted to play. I thought we were able to switch defenses enough to keep them off-kilter. What are you going to say? We have a freshman who goes for 29 points and Jettinghoff steps up and goes for 16 or 18 or whatever he had and we made some free throws down the stretch to keep them at arm’s length.” The win at home gives Jefferson a 4-13 record (2-5 NWC).

Lancers upset Panthers on Homecoming night By Sean LaFontaine DHI Correspondent sports@timesbulletin. com MIDDLE POINT - The Linconlview Lancers hosted the Paulding Panthers Friday night in Northwest Conference action. On the night when the Lancers crowned their Homecoming king and queen, the basketball squad pulled out a dramatic 63-50 win over the Panthers. The two teams played an even first 2 1/2 quarters to begin the game. With the score tied a 36-36 with just under three minutes to play in the third, the Lancers put some breathing room between themselves and the Panthers. Steven Strayer hit a free throw to put Paulding up one but junior point guard Kyle Williams answered with a three. After another Paulding free throw by senior Lance Foor, Williams hit another
three at the other end, extending the Linconlview lead to 42-38. Williams and senior Kade Cary each hit a basket to push the Lancer lead to 46-38, which is where the third quarter ended. The Panthers did not go away easily. Paulding went to a 7-0 to open the fourth quarter, led by Neil Roehrig (5 points) and Foor added the other basket. Just as they did all night, the Lancers got a big basket when they needed one. With the score 46-45 in its favor, Lincolnview hit three consecutive threes, two in a row by Cary and the last by sophomore Justis Dowdy, putting the Lancers up 55-45 with just under four minutes to play. The Panthers tried to make one last comeback by scoring the next five points: Foor hit a free throw, while Julian Salinas added two free throws and a basket; but the Lancers were too much down the stretch. The Lancers held Paulding scoreless the last
2:35 of the game and outscored them 8-0, including hitting on 6-of-8 free throws to help put away the game. The big key for the Lancers was the hot shooting of Williams. He led all scorers in the game with 26 points, including going 5-of-6 from two and hitting an impressive 5-of-8 behind the arc. Carey and Dowdy both added 14 points. As a team, Lincolnview shot 11-of-23 (47%) from two and a very impressive 9-of-16 (56%) from three. The Lancers also hit on 14-23 (60%) free throws. The victory improves Linconlview to 8-11 overall and 4-3 in the NWC. “I thought it was one of the best games we have played all year,” said Lincolnview coach Brett Hammons. “It was a low-scoring game to start but we continued to put pressure on them and got some stops. Kyle, Justis and Kade really stepped up for us on the offensive end. The rest of the guys
really played great defense for us tonight. I’m just proud of our guys. I told them before the game, I’ve never doubted their heart. They always play with heart but mentally we had to be in it for all four quarters and I thought we were. They made runs and came back at us but in the end we found a way to get it done and I’m really proud of the kids.” On the other side, Foor led the way for the Panthers with 14 points, while Roehrig chipped in with 11. The Panthers shot well from 2-point land, hitting on 19-of-39 (48%) shots; however, the Panthers shot 0-9 from behind the arc. They also went 12-of-18 (66%) from the charity stripe. The loss drops Paulding to 14-5 on the season and 4-3 in the NWC. Lincolnview visits Spencerville Friday. Paulding (50) (2FG 3FG FT PTS) Clemens 1-2 0-0 0-0 2,

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Ohio Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is 6 fish per angler with a minimum size limit of 15 inches. … The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. … The trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish per angler; The minimum size limit for trout and salmon is 12 inches. … The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit is 5 fish per angler with a 14-inch minimum size limit. There were no reports of fishing activity on Lake Erie over the past week (as of Tuesday). … The water temperature is 32 degrees off of Toledo and 34 degrees off of Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine forecast. Steelheads: Mainstream rivers and tribs are open and very high; snowy conditions cover the lakeshore area. Fishing conditions will remain poor for the next several days. Fresh steelhead will be well-distributed throughout the stream reaches. Spin-fishing anglers were using eggs, jigs tipped with maggots, or minnows. Fly-fishers were using streamers, egg patterns including sucker spawn, woolly buggers and other nymphs. Don’t forget the daily bag limit of 2 steelhead trout and salmon in the aggregate valid through May 15. How to catch ’em: Typical set-ups are long (7-10’), limber, spinning or fly rods with light line (4- to 8-lb. test). Common lures in the winter include small (1/16- to 1/80oz.) marabou or synthetic hair jigs tipped with maggots rigged with split shot under a light pencil-thin bobber. Spoons (Little Cleo, KO Wobblers) and spinners (Rooster Tails, Vibrax, etc.) are commonly used on piers, beaches and lower stream reaches. Flyfishers (using 6- to 9-wt. rods and weight-forward lines) prefer larger, weighted fly patterns, such as nymphs and streamers like woolly buggers, princes, egg-sucking leeches, stonefly and shiner patterns and clouser minnows. Egg fly patterns (single or cluster, sucker spawn, etc.) work well as a single fly or in tandem with a nymph or streamer once the fish move upstream. Salmon or trout eggs are fished as either individual eggs or grouped together in mesh “spawn bags” about the size of a dime or nickel. Eggs can be bounced along the bottom with the current or fished at/near the bottom suspended under a bobber. Vermilion River: Fish from the Vermilion boat ramp up to Birmingham. Rocky River: Fish from the Metroparks marina to the dam above the Cedar Point Rd. pools. Cuyahoga River: Fish in Cleveland Harbor and up into the Cuyahoga Valley Nat’l Park. Chagrin River: Fish from the soccer fields upstream to the North Chagrin Reservation metropark. Grand River: Fish from the Fairport breakwall up to Harpersfield Dam. Arcola Creek: Fish the river mouth, estuary and creek in the Metropark. Ashtabula River: Fish from the river mouth up through Indian Trails Park. Conneaut Creek: Fish from the river mouth up to the state line. ——— Boaters should be ready for new season Ohio law requires boaters born on or after January 1, 1982, to successfully complete either a boating course or a proficiency exam in order to operate a boat powered by more than 10 horsepower. The boating course must be approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) and the proficiency exam must be approved by the ODNR Division of Watercraft. The law applies to any operator AND any supervising adult who was born on or after January 1, 1982.
The Education Law does NOT change Operator Age Laws: For PWC (Personal Watercraft, known by the common trade names of Ski-Doo, Waverunner, SeaDoo, etc.): Children under 12 may not operate PWC, not even with an education certificate. Children 12-15 can operate PWC as long as they are under the direct supervision of an adult (18 or older) who is onboard AND as long as the child AND the supervising adult (if born on or after January 1, 1982) have education certificates. Children 16 or older can operate PWC as long as they have an education certificate. Adult supervision is not required. For Powerboats (besides PWC) greater than 10 HP: Children under 12 can operate any other type of powerboat greater than 10 HP as long as they are under the direct supervision of an adult (18 or older) who is onboard AND as long as the child AND the supervising adult (if born on or after January 1, 1982) have education certificates. Children 12 and over may operate any other type of powerboat greater than 10 HP as long as they have an education certificate. Adult supervision is not required. Any NASBLA-approved boating education course is fine. Currently, that includes courses offered by the ODNR Division of Watercraft, the US Power Squadron and the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. It also includes some online courses and the ODNR Division of Watercraft

Home Study Course. Be wary that some online course certificates are not accepted by other states. The course certificate you get from US Power Squadron, US Coast Guard Auxiliary and Ohio Boater Education Course (classroom or online) are accepted in every surrounding state. 72 Hours to Produce Proof of Education When stopped by a law enforcement officer on Ohio waters, a certificate of completion of either an approved course or proficiency test must be provided not later than 72 hours after being stopped. Proof that the person holds such a certificate may also be provided within the 72-hour period instead of the actual certificate. Failure of the person to present the certificate or proof of holding a certificate within the 72-hour period is prima-facie evidence of a violation. Options for Learning You can meet Ohio’s Boater Education requirement by taking and passing an approved boating education course (classroom, online, or home study), or by taking and passing a proficiency exam. A number of NASBLAapproved classroom courses are available in Ohio. Classroom courses are a minimum of 8 hours of classroom teaching. Some are scheduled all in one day (typically Saturdays); some are stretched out over a number of weeks (usually in the evening). Both US Power Squadron and US Coast Guard Auxiliary also offer a longer course that includes more than the required minimum information. These longer courses also fulfill Ohio’s education requirement. Most instructors use a variety of audio-visual teaching aids. Classes are geared to average learning ability (typically 5th-grade reading level). Some instructors require an adult to be present in the classroom for children under a certain age. Ask when you register what the age requirements are and if the class is suitable for your child. All of the NASBLA-approved classroom courses listed in our Boating Course Search are open to the public. You may find that more classes are scheduled in the spring and the fall when volunteer instructors are not out boating and officers are not out
patrolling. Cost varies, usually from $5-$45 based on which class is being taught, materials, room fees, etc. After you pass a classroom course, your instructor should forward your course record to ODNR Watercraft so that we can issue you a boater education card. If your instructor does not forward your information to us, we will not have you in our database and we will not be able to issue you a duplicate. It will take 1-2 weeks to get your card AFTER your instructor forwards class information to us. For more information, contact any Division of Watercraft office or call 1-877-4BOATER (in Ohio only). The nearest classroom course is set from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 9 at American Red Cross - Lima chapter, 610 South Collett St. It is offered by Lima Power Squadron and costs $45, including lunch. Pre-registration is required. Under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Enroll online at www. usps.org; or contact Thomas Schmersal at (419) 233-0973, online at firstname.lastname@example.org or the chapter at (419) 331-1169. —— Public comments now accepted online You may have read it in the paper, magazine or online. Maybe you heard it on the radio or from a wildlife officer at a club meeting. The Ohio Division of Wildlife is proposing Ohio’s hunting and trapping seasons for 2013-14 along with other changes to the Ohio Administrative code. Maybe you agree. Maybe you don’t. Well, what can you do about it? As a state agency, the DOW must follow a set of procedures when making any rule changes. That includes how public comments are accepted. Each year, the DOW holds open house meetings in all five districts, Fairport Fisheries Unit (FairportHarbor) and Old Woman Creek (Huron) to discuss proposed rule changes to Ohio’s fish and wildlife rules. Ohio’s anglers, hunters, trappers and wildlife enthusiasts are asked to provide their input on any rule being considered for change. This is an opportunity to ask questions and comment in favor of, or against, the changes that have been proposed. To be clear, the purpose is to hear public comments on the proposed changes, not to develop new rules or make other changes. Since last summer, the DOW has started to accept comments online for those customers who are unable to attend an open house. Simply go to the Division’s homepage at www.wildohio.com and click on the “Open House Comments” button. This form will be available online until March 2. This year, the spring open houses will be held from noon-3 p.m. March 2. Each open house location will have a fish and wildlife biologist, as well as law enforcement officers available to answer questions. Public input gathered at these open houses and through the online comments will be considered during the formulation of regulations. Then, on a later date, the Ohio Wildlife Council will hold a statewide hearing on all proposed rules. This hearing is open to the public and comments are also permitted within a set time. After considering public input, the OWC will vote on the proposed rules at the April 3 meeting. Good or bad, for or against, Ohio’s wildlife enthusiasts now have no excuse for not voicing their opinion on upcoming rule changes. Open houses are centrally held throughout the state. For those unable or unwilling to travel, simply settle down in front of a computer, log on to wildohio. com and vote your thoughts. It couldn’t be simpler. ——Coming Event: Owls of North America Symposium: 6 p.m. Feb. 15 to 6:30 p.m. Feb. 17 at Loudonville. Cost: $5-$70 (can include meals), plus lodging.

The Bulldogs of Ada dropped to 5-12 and 1-6 in the NWC with their fifth straight defeat, while the Grove Bulldogs improved to 12-6 and 5-2 in league play. Junior Spencer Archer led Ada with 11 points, nine of which came in the first half. Grove 6-6 junior Will Vorhees topped all scorers with 15 points. Grove led 14-7 after one period on the strength of three 3-point field goals. A left-handed shot by Vorhees inside put CG up by nine before Archer canned a triple from the top of the key to cut the deficit to 16-10 early in the second stanza. Derek Rieman then scored two baskets and Chase Darbyshire added a field goal to rebuild the host Bulldog lead to a dozen with 5:30 left in the half. Two Archer foul shots were answered by a traditional 3-point play inside by Vorhees. An inside basket and a jumper from the right elbow by Archer got Ada within 29-16 at the halftime break. A putback by the 6-4 Rieman opened the second half. Freshman playmaker Brayden Sautter buried a right-wing trey and two Archer foul shots kept Ada within 33-21 with 6:14 left in the third period. Senior Mason Acheson nailed a trey and a pair from the charity stripe as the visitors stayed in striking distance. After two Vorhees foul shots, Gabe Sutton drained a 3-pointer with just under a minute left to slice the deficit to 39-29. Grove powered inside for another short shot and a 12-point margin heading to the final quarter. CG then extended its run to 9-0 by scoring the first seven points of the fourth period. Austin Dumbaugh tallied an old-fashioned 3-point play to make it 48-32. Vorhees and Acheson traded post-up baskets but Grove ran off the last seven points of the night as Darbyshire converted four straight foul shots to provide the final margin of 23. Darbyshire contributed 14 points to support Vorhees. Ada plays at non-league county rival Hardin Northern today. Grove hosts Crestview Friday.

The Herald – 9
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2013 When you establish a few realistic goals in the year ahead, you could easily receive a lot of support from unexpected people. Fortunately, success is likely when you are teamed up with strong allies. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your greatest asset is your ability to take bits and pieces of various ideas and bring them together in the service of a specific objective. Use your mind like a scanner. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -You won’t have any trouble rejecting persons who make demands of you. However, should you be moved by a sense of compassion for one of them, you’ll be generous to a fault. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t ignore your instincts concerning dealings with others. Allow your intuition to dominate so that your logic can go to work in the right areas. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Since you’re strongly motivated to fulfill a certain ambitious objective, let your cleverness guide you. Use your wits to convince the right people to work with you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Because you and someone with whom you enjoy warm emotional ties care so much about each other, you’ll stand by his or her efforts. Good for you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you want a winning group endeavor, make sure the people involved respect each other. Only then will truly good work be done. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -There’s no need to dodge difficult decisions, because your judgment is likely to be keener than usual. Weigh your alternatives and trust your evaluations. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -You are presently in a cycle where your work is being noticed, evaluated and even rewarded. This could be your chance to pick up a few extra bucks. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If the person whom you have been yearning to get to know better seems reticent about opening up communication, take matters in your own hands and initiate a conversation. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You could be extremely successful at finalizing an important, materially meaningful situation. Make the most of it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Owing to the considerate way you’ve been treating people lately, your popularity is trending upward. You make everyone feel special. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your financial aspects are looking rather strong, with one possible exception: involvements with questionable people who expect to reap what you sow. Avoid them. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2013 In the year ahead, you might finally be able to resolve an important issue that has stymied everyone. Once you figure it out, things will work out advantageously for all. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- When it comes to competitive situations, the secret to success is to be more dedicated than your competitors. You understand that hard work generates good luck. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- We can always learn something of value from others, if we keep our minds open. You can gain some extremely valuable information from a very unexpected source. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -A number of great opportunities will develop through your own efforts and those of others. Don’t be concerned over who authors what. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If you are putting together a social agenda that involves new people, you might still want to include a friend of long standing. She or he could be helpful to your cause. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -You’re apt to be far better at handling certain challenges than your peers, so don’t hesitate to step forward and take the reins if you see others fumbling. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Should an opportunity arise, take the time to help a friend who is always critical of others to see the good in people. It can’t hurt to try. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -You might have to deal with some changes that are being initiated by external forces. Don’t be too quick to get upset -- instead, use your smarts to find a way to offset them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -An alliance that you establish with an older or more experienced person is likely to work out quite well for both of you. He or she has the know-how, while you have fresh ideas. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -It’ll benefit you to devote most of your time and energy to situations that could pay off well. The gains involved could be larger than usual. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You could be much more effective participating in a leadership role than you would doing the grunt work. If you see everyone floundering, step out of the pack and offer some direction. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Things have a way of working out to everyone’s advantage at present, so don’t get disturbed over early, unpromising indicators. It’s the final results that count. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) -- Although some of your companions might overlook advantages that can be gained from unfamiliar sources, you won’t. Your analytical powers will be hard at work.
