DELPHOS — Accomplishments of the past year and parcel post’s 100th birthday were celebrated at the second annual Delphos Museum of Postal History Gala Sunday evening. More than 130 guests each received a special parcel with sweets and other surprises inside. Museum Director Gary Levitt addressed the crowd and thanked recent generous benefactors, including the Arnold C. Dienstberger Foundation, The Delphos Herald, Gary and Jeannie Hasenkamp, the Delphos Area Art Guild and Dr. Walter W. Wolery. All were awarded pavers which can be viewed in the lobby of the museum. “Without our benefactors, there would be no museum,” Levitt said. “We have an operating budget of $30,000-$32,000 a year and we don’t charge admission. That money comes from

our community and others who are gracious enough to support us. The board and I have been talking about the fact there are no restrooms on the second floor and elevator to make it accessible to everyone. We will be working toward a solution to those issues next.” Special plaques were awarded to Bob Ulm, Rick Miller and Robert Schmit for their volunteerism and help on the board. A 10-question trivia game was held throughout the evening with answers found within museum exhibits. The trip to Lake Tahoe or California was won by Mary Krohn. Catharine Gerdemann won the 50/50 drawing and Karen Edlebrock and Norbert “Tiny” Suever won the door prizes. Levitt also announced a membership drive. Individual memberships are $30 and $50 for a family membership. Checks can be made out to MPH and mailed to PO Box 174, Delphos OH 45833. For more information, call 419303-5482.

COLUMBUS — By timing the address to follow his major budget, tax reform and school funding proposals, Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s annual State of the State speech Tuesday in Lima will feel more like a stump speech for 2014 than the typical litany of big policy initiatives. The Republican governor will use the speech to promote his latest ideas for the state, rather than announce them. He’s said as much. “For those that are thinking that they want to come to Lima on the 19th for a whole bunch of new things in the State of the State, don’t come,” he said in unveiling his $63.2 billion, twoyear budget this month. “Because I think we’ve got it all out on the field right now.” For the second consecutive year, Kasich is taking the address outside Columbus, and outside the Statehouse, where pro-labor protesters packed the halls and sent up disruptive shouts during his first address in 2011. Last year, Kasich made history when he first gave the speech elsewhere, picking the Democratic and union stronghold of Steubenville to highlight positives he said were taking place in economically hard-hit eastern Ohio, particularly surrounding K-12 education and oil and gas exploration. With Lima, in northwest Ohio, Kasich has found a manufacturing hub with significantly improved employment, which also sits in the heart of reliably Republican farm country. The new leader of the Ohio Senate that’s sometimes block Kasich’s plans, President Keith Faber of Celina, lives nearby. Located about 80 miles south of Toledo, Lima was built around factories that made locomotives and school buses. Heavy industry still drives the city, home to an oil refinery, a See KASICH, page 14

Dress exchanges can take bite out of prom expenses
BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com About this time each year, high school girls are on the hunt for the perfect prom dress. Once they find “the one,” it’s all downhill from there with shoes, jewelry and other accessories, hair, makeup, nail and even tanning appointments, boutonnieres and corsages, transportation and of course, a date. This may seem excessive but in an age where role models are actresses and overthe-top reality television stars, many young women view prom as their red-carpet moment and thus, a reason to splurge. In 2012, a survey done by Visa revealed the average amount spent on prom per child was approximately $1,078, a noticeable increase from the $807 average of 2011. Even more shocking was that families in the lowest income bracket were estimated to spend the most of all, nearly twice the national average. The spike in spending could be attributed to the rising manufacturer costs for prom dresses, which went up an average of 20 percent from 2010 to 2011 and 25 percent from 2011 to 2012. This can seem like a bit of a waste, since most prom dresses are worn once and then shoved in the back of a closet. A way to get around this predicament is an event called a “dress exchange,” like the one that took place at St. John’s High School Saturday afternoon. During these exchanges, girls pay a $5 fee to bring their worn prom dresses in and put them on display for other girls to try on and purchase for substantially reduced prices. This way, prom-goers can get rid of their old dresses and find new ones without spending hundreds of dollars, allowing them to put that money toward the rest of their prom purchases or to something else entirely. “With the economy the way it is, a lot of people now can’t afford to go and spend a lot of money on a prom dress,” Coordinator Kelley Beining said. “This is just a way to help them find a great dress at a great price and also help them get rid of their old prom dresses.”

Haley Landwehr dropped by the St. John’s relay for Life team’s prom dress exchange with her friend, Chelsea Boecker, on Saturday to check out the selection. (Delphos Herald/Stacy Taff)

Ohio neighbors put skills to use, swap services
By JoANNE VIVIANO The Columbus Dispatch COLUMBUS (AP) — Remember the days when your father helped paint a neighbor’s house and that neighbor returned the favor by helping him with his tax return? A group based in Clintonville has brought back that concept of being neighborly, but with a more universal twist. The Care and Share Time Bank allows members to call on neighbors for help with anything from a drive to the airport to a Spanish lesson, from eye care to car repairs. The helpers earn “time credits” that they can use to recruit other timebank members to fulfill their needs. Building community is at the project’s core, said co-founder Michael Greenman of Westerville. But other benefits to members include saving money, especially during tough economic times; reducing energy use; and placing equal value on the abilities of all participants. “Everybody has skills and value, and that’s one of the principles we go on,” said Greenman, 69, a retired international-marketing executive. “Every service that is provided is valued equally. There’s no hierarchy.” Since its founding about two years ago, the project has grown to 160 members who have exchanged about 1,200 hours. A steadily growing national movement has resulted in the formation of at least 300 banks across the country and inspires interest from five new groups each week, said Edgar Cahn, founder of the Washington-based TimeBanks USA. Time banking has largely been a grass-roots movement of people “discovering we need each other,” Cahn said, but it is expanding as nonprofits learn to enlist the networks as partners. For example, some time banks partner with hospital systems on research, offer visiting-nurse services and work with new immigrants, he said. “It creates a new extended family that bridges race, class, gender, ethnicity and national origin in a very exciting way,” he said. “This is really about what equality means. This is what it means to be a human being.” Partners in the Care and Share network include the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus, the Interfaith Association of Central Ohio and Simply Living. Members can donate some of their accrued time to the nonprofit groups, which can then engage the time bank for needed tasks, such as helping to plan an activity or driving a disabled client to a medical appointment. Tina Thonnings, 44, of Clintonville, has drawn on the time bank for various services, including having her house painted, organizing a room and moving a refrigerator. She has helped others with child care, reflexology, filing and other tasks. Examples of other offerings in the bank are lawn and garden care, tailoring, cooking, photo restoration, computer help, music lessons and pet care. “Everyone has something to give, and each of us

Patty Ann Wittler

Nov. 19, 1963-Feb. 16, 2013 Patty Ann Wittler, 49, of Hudson, Ind., went home to be with her Lord and savior on Saturday, at her home after a four year battle with cancer. She was born Nov. 19, 1963, in Coldwater, Mich., to Richard and Sara (Hornbrook) Smith, who survive in Fremont, Ind. On July 20, 1991, she married Rob Wittler, who survives at Turkey Lake, Ind. Also surviving is her daughter, Jessica (Wittler) Kleman; a son-in-law Brandon; and grandson Evan of Elida; sisters Diane Benroth of Rimer and Debbie (Wayne) Grubbs of Sarasota, Fla.; brothers Tom (Diana) Smith of Battle Ground, Ind., and Mark Smith (Jennifer) of Fremont; and seven nieces and nephews and many aunts and uncles. Mrs. Wittler attended Fremont High School, Purdue University, International Business College and Indiana Wesleyan, where she received her bachelor’s degree in accounting. The past five years Patty worked in various positions at Cooper Standard in Auburn. Most recently, Patty worked as an IT Budget Analyst where she was able to travel to Germany & Poland. Prior to that, she worked 13 years in the accounting department at Northern Indiana Fuel & Light Co. in Auburn. She enjoyed gardening, boating, cooking, and entertaining family and friends at the lake. She especially enjoyed spending time with her daughter, son-in-law and grandson. She also enjoyed spending time with her sister and family in Sarasota. Patty & Rob attended Calvary Chapel of Stroh. Funeral services will begin at 11 a.m. Thursday at Stroh Church of Christ, 4540 S. 1100 West, Hudson, Ind., Pastor Gary Rifenburg officiating. With a meal to follow. Burial will be at 2:30 p.m. Thursday at Teeters Cemetery east of Fremont, Ind. Visitation will be from 3-7 p.m. Wednesday and one hour prior to funeral services Thursday at the church. In lieu of flowers, memorials are to the family or Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana. Arrangements by Dale Johnson Funeral Home of Hudson. Condolences may be sent to www.dalejohnsonfh.com.

is valued for what we have to offer,” said Thonnings, who works as a business director at a preschool and as a massage therapist. “A lot of people don’t think they have a lot to give, but most of the tasks people want are things that anyone can give.” Recently, Thonnings helped out local resident Joe Del Medico, who needed to get some paperwork in order. He said he’s been described as a “poster child” for the group, having given about 47 hours of time and cashing in about 16. The computer programmer in his 40s asked for help plastering, painting and performing plumbing work on a rental property. He’s offered computer help, online-file organization and electrical work. He said the main benefits to time banking are being able to get to know and trust the people doing the work (members meet for monthly potluck meals) and being able to obtain services that otherwise would have been unaffordable. The framework also helps people who have needs retain self-confidence and dignity by allowing them to offer their time to others, said co-founder Steve Bosserman, 63, a business-management consultant. “It assigns a value that each person of the community can provide by simply doing something that they know how to do for someone who, for whatever reason, is not able to do it for themselves,” said Bosserman. “It provides an even playing field.”

“Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.” — Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, German philosopher (1770-1831)

Gun ban would protect more than 2,200 firearms
By EILEEN SULLIVAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Congress’ latest crack at a new assault weapons ban would protect more than 2,200 specific firearms, including a semi-automatic rifle that is nearly identical to one of the guns used in the bloodiest shootout in FBI history. One model of that firearm, the Ruger .223 caliber Mini14, is on the proposed list to be banned, while a different model of the same gun is on a list of exempted firearms in legislation the Senate is considering. The gun that would be protected from the ban has fixed physical features and can’t be folded to be more compact. Yet the two firearms are equally deadly. “What a joke,” said former FBI agent John Hanlon, who survived the 1986 shootout in Miami. He was shot in the head, hand, groin and hip with a Ruger Mini-14 that had a folding stock. Two FBI agents died and five others were wounded. Hanlon recalled lying on the street as brass bullet casings showered on him. He thought the shooter had an automatic weapon. Both models of the Ruger Mini-14 specified in the proposed bill can take detachable magazines that hold dozens of rounds of ammunition. “I can’t imagine what the difference is,” Hanlon said. President Barack Obama has called for restoring a ban on military-style assault weapons and limiting the size of ammunition magazines. A bill introduced last month by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. would ban 157 specific firearms designed for military and law enforcement use and exempt others made for hunting purposes. It also would ban ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. Yet there are firearms that would be protected under Feinstein’s proposal that can take large capacity magazines like the ones used in mass shootings that enable a gunman to fire dozens of rounds of ammunition without reloading. Feinstein said in a written response to questions from The Associated Press that the list of more than 2,200 exempted firearms was designed to “make crystal clear” that the bill would not affect hunting and sporting weapons. The December shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., that left 26 students and educators dead forced Washington to focus on curbing gun violence, a risky political move not tried in decades. The gun industry, which is fighting any sort of ban, says gun ownership in the

The campers also learned motions and jumps during the camp. There was even a visit by the Blue Jay mascot. 25 Years Ago – 1988 • Delphos Ministerial Association will sponsor Lenten services and luncheons on Thursday during Lent at St. Peter Lutheran Church.

GOP foe of Hagel’s nomination says let vote go on
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s pick to be defense secretary is unsuited to head the Pentagon, but Republican senators should stop stalling the nomination and allow a vote on Chuck Hagel, a leading opponent said Sunday. “No, I don’t believe he’s qualified,” said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. “But I don’t believe that we should hold up his nomination any further, because I think it’s (been) a reasonable amount of time to have questions answered.” Republicans have angered Obama by delaying the formation of his second-term national security team, which includes Hagel, a former Republican senator from Nebraska, and John Brennan, the president’s top counterterrorism adviser who’s awaiting confirmation as CIA director. Critics contend that Hagel, who snubbed McCain by staying neutral in 2008 presidential race when McCain ran against Obama, isn’t supportive enough of Israel and is unreasonably sympathetic to Iran. The nomination also became entangled in Republican lawmakers’ questioning of how the White House handled the Sept. 11 attack against a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. GOP senators also have challenged his past statements and votes on nuclear weapons, and his criticism of the President George W. Bush’s administration lingers. Republicans last week held up a confirmation vote but have indicated that they eventually would relent and permit a vote when they return from their break on Feb. 25. Obama’s chief of staff, Denis McDonough, said Hagel, a Vietnam combat veteran, said was the right person to lead the Pentagon, and “has one thing in mind: How do we protect the country?”

Obama offering immigration plan as backup
By PHILIP ELLIOTT The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The White House is downplaying its draft proposal as merely a backup plan if lawmakers don’t come up with an immigration overhaul of their own. It won’t be necessary, Republican and Democratic lawmakers alike are telling the Obama administration. White House chief of staff Denis McDonough said Sunday that President Barack Obama wants to “be prepared” in case the small bipartisan group of senators fails to devise a plan for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States. In response, lawmakers assured the White House they are working on their own plan — and warned that Obama would be heading toward failure if the White House gets ahead of them. “We will be prepared with our own plan if these ongoing talks between Republicans and Democrats up on Capitol Hill break down,” McDonough said, adding he’s optimistic they would not crumble. But he was equally realistic about the fierce partisanship on Capitol Hill. “Well, let’s make sure that it doesn’t have to be proposed,” McDonough said of the president’s pitch, first reported on USA Today’s website late Saturday. Even so, the administration is moving forward on its own immigration agenda should one of Obama’s top priorities get derailed. The administration’s proposal would create a visa for those in the country illegally and allow them to become legal permanent residents within eight years. The proposal also requires businesses to know the immigration status of their workers and adds more funding for border security. It drew immediate criticism from Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., one of the eight lawmakers searching for a comprehensive plan. “If actually proposed, the president’s bill would be dead on arrival in Congress, leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come,” said Rubio, who has been a leading GOP spokesman on immigration. Many details in the administration’s draft proposal follow the broad principles that Obama previously outlined. But the fact the administration is writing its own alternative signaled Obama wants to address immigration sooner rather than later and perhaps was looking to nudge lawmakers to move more quickly. The tactic could complicate the administration’s work with Congress. Republican Rep. Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin lawmaker who was his party’s vice presidential nominee last year, said the timing of the leak suggests the White House was looking for “a partisan advantage and not a bipartisan solution.” “Leaking this out does set things in the wrong direction,” said Ryan. “There are groups in the House and the Senate working together to get this done and when he does things like this, it makes that much more difficult to do that.” Freshman Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, called the leaked plan “incomplete” and said both parties in Congress and the White House need to work together on a solution.

U.S. is the highest it’s ever been, with more than 100 million firearms owners. Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden have traveled around the country in an effort to gain support for new laws. Feinstein’s proposal is the only sweeping piece of legislation designed to ban assault weapons currently being considered. But some gun experts say the lists of banned and exempted firearms show a lack of understanding and expertise of guns. “There’s no logic to it,” said Greg Danas, president of a Massachusetts-based expert witness business and firearms ballistic laboratory. “What kind of effect is it going to have?” Feinstein’s bill defines an assault weapon as a semiautomatic firearm with a detachable magazine that has one of several military characteristics that are specified in her legislation. Examples of those characteristics include a pistol grip, which makes a firearm easier to hold, and a forward grip, which makes the firearm easier to stabilize to improve accuracy. The definition is similar to the one in Congress’ original ban on assault weapons, which went into effect in 1994 and was widely criticized for outlawing firearms based on cosmetic features.

Moderately confused

COLUMBIA, S.C. — When President Obama said in his State of the Union address that “This time is different,” referring to his push for tighter gun-control laws, he wasn’t just whistling Dixie. Analysts seeking insight into the gun debate need look no further than the land of cotton, where nothing is ever forgotten. In a matter of days, citizens and lawmakers on both sides of the gun issue have advanced laws to: — Allow concealed weapons to be carried in bars and restaurants; — Make it legal to purchase or own any weapon that could have been acquired legally at the end of 2012; — Strengthen background checks to identify people with mental illness. The latter is the most serious of the batch and follows a recent near-tragedy at Ashley Hall, a private girls’ school in Charleston where Barbara Bush, among other notables, was once a student. Several days ago, a woman with a long record of mental instability, including a 2005 court plea of not guilty by reason of insanity, brought a loaded semiautomatic pistol to the school and pulled the trigger several times while pointing the gun at a school administrator. Fortunately, the gun never fired and Alice Boland, 28, was unable to complete her mission. What exactly that was isn’t easily discerned

Bowling for sanity

action to prevent people such firearms. Boland managed to answer questions on a federal questionnaire adequately to purchase the gun. And because she has no criminal record, her name wasn’t flagged during a routine background check. Laws governing doctorpatient privacy prohibit disclosure of mental health issues — as any who have sought psychological counseling would have it. But Boland had another record that clearly should have disqualified her from gun ownership. Never mind an earlier diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia. She had faced federal charges for threatening to kill President George W. Bush and “the entire U.S. Congress.” Her plea of not guilty by reason of insanity inarguably should have placed her in a database of those ineligible to purchase firearms. But because her charges were dismissed in 2009, she had no criminal record. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, speaking in Washington Wednesday, labeled the Ashley Hall case Exhibit A of a “broken system,” and has vowed to introduce legislation that would enhance the background check process to include “prior exposure to court and … mental status.” Meanwhile, state officials back home in Columbia were

from her bond hearing rant, which covered a diverse collection of complaints: “I wanted to make a political demonstration about problems in my life relating to the fact that racist feminists, including institutions like that where I was demonstrating … have been causing me these alleged mental problems ever since I met a lesbian professor,” said Boland. Check. This was not Boland’s first visit to Ashley Hall, which is located near her psychologist’s office. Boland prompted a call to police two years ago when she reportedly was seen “harassing children and acting very suspicious,” according to a Charleston police officer. This time, she brought a Taurus PT-22 pistol she had purchased a few days earlier, despite a mental health record that, in a rational world, would have blocked the sale. The woman herself said she was crazy, yet she’s sane enough to buy a gun? More than 50 Ashley Hall parents have signed a letter sent to a dozen state and federal officials urging

busy figuring out ways to skirt any new laws that might restrict gun ownership. Citing an 1881 “unorganized militia” state law, state Sen. Tom Corbin, R-Greenville, proposed legislation guaranteeing everyone’s right to own any weapon that could be purchased legally as of Dec. 31, 2012. Corbin’s claim that federal law could not pre-empt South Carolina law, in addition to being incorrect — federal law trumps state law — was rather dramatically disproved during the unpleasantness of 1861-65. In other action, a state Senate panel approved a bill to allow concealed weapons in restaurants and bars so long as the carriers don’t drink. Noting the volatility of mixing guns and alcohol, some suggested that business owners could post signs banning guns in their establishments. But one speaker called that “un-American.” Another insisted that he should be allowed to have a glass of wine with his lasagna while packing heat. So it goes in the state that James L. Petigru, antisecessionist and former South Carolina attorney general, long ago described as “too small to be a republic and too large to be an insane asylum.” It remains to be seen if this time is different.

Smoking cessation program returns to OSU-Lima
Information submitted Dr. Joe Green, professor of psychology at The Ohio State University at Lima, will present “The Winning Edge: Self Empowerment Program for Smoking Cessation” from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27 and March 6 in Galvin 118 on the Ohio State Lima campus. The Winning Edge program, which is a longitudinal scientific study created by Dr. Green and Dr. Steven Jay Lynn of Binghampton University, combines cognitive-behavioral cessation techniques with self-hypnosis to help smokers achieve a lifetime of freedom from smoking. The two professors have been developing this unique program for more than five years. This is the second time this academic year that Dr. Green has presented the program at Ohio State Lima. Throughout the three sessions, The Winning Edge program teaches participants cognitive-

behavioral skills to stop smoking and to develop an image of themselves as non-smokers and incorporate hypnotic techniques to enhance their motivation to stop smoking. It also helps participants cope with smoking urges; offers strategies to minimize weight gain, prevent relapse and maximize social support; provides handouts, worksheets, DVDs and CDs for home practice; and collects data to evaluate program effectiveness. Attendance at all three sessions is critical to participant and program success. The general public is invited to participate in the program. Because this is a research study, costs have been contained to $25 for the three sessions and take-home materials. This fee will help cover program expenses. To enroll in the program or for more information, contact MaryAnn Kromer at 419-9958654. Additional information and program details are available online at: Lima.OSU.edu/ stopsmoking

Local wrestlers move on to Kettering
Rassman at 126 (forfeit) and Chris Truesdale at 145. Tanner Vermule is an alternate at 138. “It’s nice to have three individual champions this weekend. Quinten in particular was a great result,” Jefferson coach Mike Wilson noted. “I have so much respect for the guy he beat, Justin Post (Coldwater), because I feel he is a likely state champion. It was a great match (3-2). Quinten is one of the guys that was out for three weeks earlier and those guys are rounding into physical shape.” For the coach, the two weeks they had to prepare — with only a triangular at Defiance eight days ago — was well needed. “We got better because we got healthier and we could work on conditioning. That’s what we lost with all the injuries and skin issues we faced earlier,” he added. “This is the time of year you really shoot for; the Northwest Conference and the tournaments. Now it’s about getting healthier, in better shape and staying there.” Spencerville was sixth (111). Earning a district trip for the Bearcats were Lucas Shumate, 3rd at 195; Lucas Krouskop, 3rd at 220; Derrick Smith, 3rd at 126; Trevor Bockey, 4th at 132; and Cory Binkley, 4th at 138. Alternates include Ashley King at 113, Cole Bellows at 145 and Jake Bellows at 285. Not a bad day for Spencerville coach Tom Wegesin. “We brought 12 here, 10 of them in our regular lineup. We had five advancers and two alternates,” he said. “As a coach, I don’t necessarily focus a lot on what goes on earlier in the season outside of it being a stepping stone to what we aim for, which is this time of year. We focus on peaking at this time of year. We’re getting there but we still have a lot of upside and a lot of work to do. That is the good thing; we still have a lot of little things to improve

The third quarter saw the Big Green come right out and start chipping away at the Vikings’ lead but each time, the Vikings came right back and took the lead. Roby continued his hot shooting from the outside with two more 2 3-pointers and Austin Honigford added five points to contribute to their team’s 15 points in the stanza. The Vikings had balanced scoring throughout the period but got four big points off the bench from Kuhlman. After three quarters of play, the Vikings led 42-38. As was the case in the third quarter of play, the Big Green stormed out of the gate in the fourth and rallied all the way back to take a 43-42 lead at the 5:10 mark. However, the Vikings rode Brown’s back (9 points in the 4th), connected on 5-of-8 shots from the charity stripe and survived several last-second chances by the Big Green to tie the game to come away with the win on the evening. The Vikings (17-4, 6-0 PCL) were led by the duo of Brown (22 points) and Mangas (14 points) on the night. The Vikings were only 17-43 from inside the arc for 40 percent, 38 percent (3-8) from beyond the arc and 12-17 (71%) from the foul line. They hauled down 27 boards and committed 16 turnovers. The Big Green (8-13, 3-4 PCL) had three players score in double figures on the evening: Ryan Honigford (13 points), Luke Schimmoeller (12) and Derek Schimmoeller (11) led the way. The Big Green shot 43 percent by going 13-30 from inside the arc and were 5-14 (36%) from 3-point land. From the charity stripe, they continued their excellent shooting by going 11-11 for the evening. The Green only had 16 turnovers for the game and hauled down 17 boards. The Big Green will travel to Wayne Trace Friday night for a 6 p.m. junior varsity start. No JV game was played Saturday.

When Buescher hit a back-door layin at 28 seconds, the Jays had their biggest lead of the game at 39-36. The Jays outboarded the Wildcats 25-18 (11-9 offensive) as Geise and Buescher each had eight rebounds for the Jays and Sullivan grabbed five for the hosts. St. John’s had 11 fouls and Bath 12. The Jays close their regular season Friday with a Midwest Athletic Conference game on the road at Parkway. “Coming off a tough game, we started off slowly tonight but kept at it. They have so many weapons, you are really challenged on defense,” Elwer added. “Even when they went up eight in the fourth, we battled back. We had some good looks down the stretch but they didn’t fall; it just wasn’t meant to be.” The Wildcats host Western Buckeye League foe Celina the same night. “A lot of guys took that loss really hard last night and they came out ready to go. They bounced back nicely and we got off quickly,” Davis added. “St. John’s came back, which you knew they would. They hit some tough shots against some pretty good defense. We also know at times, with the way we play defense, we will give up some layups. It’s a gamble and sometimes, you lose.” In junior varsity action, Bath secured a 52-44 victory. Leading their way were Andrew Renner with 13 and Cam Clark 12 (4 treys). For the Jays (8-11), Alex Odenweller dropped in 13.

Bulldog boys down Miller City By DAVE BONINSEGNA The Delphos Herald zsportslive@yahoo.com COLUMBUS GROVE — A hoped-for share of the Putnam County League boys cage title was on the line on Saturday night when the Miller City Wildcats came into Columbus Grove High School to take on the Bulldogs; the hosts had won six of the last seven matchups between the two and the capacity house in the Grove gym was expecting a classic PCL battle. That is exactly what they got: five lead changes in the first quarter but in the end a 11-0 spurt by the hosts led to a 67-56 win for the Bulldogs. They are a half-game behind Leipsic, who edged out Ottoville 55-52 but have one league game to go. The Bulldogs used balanced scoring as Derek Rieman had a double-double scoring 14 points and grabbing 10 rebounds, Collin Grothaus and Will Vorhees had 12 points, while Jace Darbyshire added 11 in the victory. Columbus Grove delivered on 21-of-33 — including a torrid 8-of-12 downtown — and 17-of-26 from the foul line. Russell Niese led all scorers with 17 for the Wildcats; Ross Kauffman added 14 points in the effort. The hosts took a 19-12 advantage into the second stanza but a 12-4 run by Miller City sent the momentum the way of the Wildcats; Niese, Austin Lammers and Adam Niese all hit long-range shots for the guests. R. Niese tied the game at 26-26 with a 3-pointer from straight out with 3:37 to go and the Lammers 3 sent the guests into the break with a 29-26 lead. R. Niese hit back-to-back shots for the Wildcats early in the third as the visitors took a 33-27 advantage before Grove started its trek back. Riemen hit a baseline shot with 5:04 to go and pulled the Bulldogs within two on a stickback bucket moments later. Darbyshire knocked down a triple to give the Bulldogs the lead for good with 3:04 to go in the third canto. “We got some good looks and made them; they went to that box-and-1 and we kind of forgot what we were supposed to do,” Grove coach Ryan Stechschulte noted. “We got some good senior leadership at halftime; Derek and Collin stepped up and said a lot in the locker room and that kind of took care of it.” Rieman added to the advantage on an outlet breakaway bucket, culminating an 11-0

Miller City (56) R. Niese 6-1-17, Heuerman 1-0-3, Drummelsmith 3-0-8, A. Niese 2-05, Kaufman 7-0-14, Lammers 2-0-5, Vennekotter 2-0-4. Totals 14/30-9/281/6-56.

run by the hosts and putting them up 40-35 with just over two minutes to go. “Derek is a senior captain and a big strong kid; this was his last home game. We knew he would give us a great effort and when he is good like that, we are pretty good,” Stechschulte remarked. Darbyshire added his second triple of the period with 1:41 left making it a 44-35 Grove advantage as the tide turned towards the way of the crimson and grey in the third eight minutes of the game. “The third-quarter spurt to push it to 10 was huge; we did a good job in holding the lead through the fourth quarter,” Stechschulte added. The Bulldogs took their biggest lead of the contest at 47-37 in the final stanza and never looked back; Miller City never got closer than eight as the home team maintained at least a 10-point advantage the rest of the way. The Bulldogs end their PCL season with a record of 6-1 in the league and move to 14-7 overall; they end the regular season with a battle against Jefferson on Friday. Miller City falls to 15-6 overall and 4-3 in the PCL.

Lady Rockets edge Grove By DAVE BONINSEGNA
The Delphos Herald zsportslive@yahoo.com

COLUMBUS GROVE — The regular season for area girls basketball teams culminated at Saturday afternoon for the Pandora-Gilboa Lady Rockets and the Columbus Grove Lady Bulldogs and although the Putnam County League title had already been claimed by Ottoville, the ’Dogs and Rockets were playing for momentum heading into the tournament. The Bulldogs were trying to break a 4-game losing streak, while P-G was trying to keep the flow going. The teams were on fire in the first stanza, ending the first period with the guests on top 16-14; however, the second eight minutes saw the two combine for just 2-of-23 for the field before a battle backand-forth in the second half that saw the Rockets come away with the 40-37 victory. Megan Maag (14 points) hit four shots in the third stanza to pace the guests. The Bulldogs rebounded

from the lackluster shooting in the second period to hit 9-of-16 in the second half; however, 19 turnovers in the contest proved to be the demise of the hosts. Sydney McCluer led the home team with nine points. After the shooting woes in the second, the teams headed to the break with just a 2-point differential as the Rockets led 18-16, taking the lead when Ashley Alt made a shot from inside the left side arc with just two ticks left on the clock. Kyrie Yinger tied the game seconds earlier with a bucket from the same spot at the Grove end of the court. The Rockets took the biggest lead of the game in the third stanza on a Maag connection from the paint with 6:24 to go that gave the visitors a 23-18 advantage. Nonetheless, the Bulldogs came back and gained a brief advantage a series of giveaways and takebacks, with Columbus Grove getting the last; McCluer took a steal from mid-court in for a easy layup, giving the ’Dogs a 25-24 lead. But, as the game had gone for the first two quarters-plus, the Rockets stole the lead right back. Maag picked off a pass and drove for a like basket for P-G; seconds later, she knocked down a long ball with 36 seconds on the clock to make it 29-24 Rockets lead. Hope Schroeder nailed her lone basket of the game from beyond the 3-point line at the buzzer to cut the Bulldog deficit to 29-27. The final period was just as competitive as the first three with the hosts winning the eight minutes 12-11. Breanne Halker (Grove) and Olivia Maag traded threes in the first seconds of the canto and Renee Karhoff hit a shot from the foul line to knot the game at 32-32 with just under five minutes remaining. Sammi Stechschulte took a perfect low-post pass from Yinger to give the home team a 2-point lead and on the next trip down court, Rachel Schumacher converted a 2-pointer off a steal, giving the hosts a 4-point lead at 36-32 with 3:50 remaining. Olivia Maag tied the game off a mid-court steal and conversion moments later and Hunter Hermiller gave the Rockets the lead for good, connecting on two from the foul line with just over two minutes to go. Ashley Williams rounded out the scoring with just 38 seconds left to seal the win. The Rockets will start their tournament run on Tuesday when they play in the sectionals at Ottawa-Glandorf against Holgate. Columbus Grove gets a bye in the first round and will play the Ottoville/Perry winner Saturday.
Pandora-Gilboa (40) Williams 1-2-4, Hermiller 2-3-7, O. Maag 2-0-5, M.Maag 7-0-14, Conine 3-2-8, Alt 1-0-2. Totals 16-7/11-40.

Pioneers end Bluffton’s season with 76-67 win By Jordan Marbaugh Sports information assistant LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Bluffton University women’s basketball season came to an end after a hard-fought battle with regular-season Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference champion Transylvania University. The Beavers lost 76-67 and missed out on the conference tournament by one game. Bluffton ended the season 12-13 and 7-11 in HCAC. Transylvania stands 20-5 and 16-2 in HCAC heading into next weekend’s tournament in Lexington. Bluffton opened the game with 10 straight points for a 10-0 lead at the 15:19 mark. The visitors held a 17-7 advantage after a Taylor Knight (Perrysburg) jumper at the 11:51 mark. The momentum began to change after Brooke Ruffer (Stryker) picked up her third foul, her second in a span of 16 seconds, at the 10:25 mark. At the time, the Beavers led 17-11. At the 4:55 mark, the Bluffton lead had been cut to 32-29; less than two minutes later, Transylvania was up 34-32. The Pioneers took a 39-37 lead into the break. The story of the first half was the foul situation. The Beavers were called for 15 fouls, compared to just four whistles against Transylvania. The second half was much of the same as the officials continued to be quick to use their whistles. The foul trouble for the Beavers began to mount as Transylvania pushed the lead to 50-42 with 12:18 left. Transy opened its largest spread of the game on a pair of free throws at 58-44 with 10:11 left. The Bluffton women would not give up, as they continued to battle. Bluffton closed the mark to 68-58 with 3:42 left. Back-to-back threes by Ruffer and Kaitlyn Pennekamp (Hamilton/Ross) trimmed the deficit to just 70-64 with 2:14 left. However, the Beavers could not make it all the way back as Transylvania held on. Freshman sensation Ruffer led the Beavers as she dropped in 18 points and grabbed six rebounds while playing just 26 minutes due to the foul trouble. Following right behind her was fellow freshman Pennekamp who netted 16 points and went 6-of-6 at the free-throw line. Brenna Kurilec (Mt. Gilead/ Gilead Christian) added nine points and eight rebounds. The deciding factor in the game was fouls called as all the other stats were almost identical. Bluffton was whistled for 31 fouls to just 16 for Transylvania. Transylvania finished a blistering 33-of-39

Yinger 2-1-5. Totals 13-8/12-37. Score by Quarters: Pandora-Gilboa 16 2 11 11 - 40 Columbus Grove 14 2 11 12 – 37 Three-point goals: Pandora-Gilboa 1-12 (O. Maag), Columbus Grove 3-11 (Halker, Yinger, Schroeder). JV score: 36-32 OT (P-G). ———

(84.6%) from the line, Bluffton converted 15-for-18 (83.3%). Both teams pulled down 35 rebounds and Bluffton turned it over two more times (12-10). Beavers just missed out on a berth in the conference tournament as a win over Transy would have extended Bluffton’s season thanks to Hanover’s victory over Rose-Hulman. With the Bluffton loss, RHIT claims the sixth seed and travels to Lexington, Ky., for a rematch with the Panthers Friday night. ——Bluffton men finish with 81-74 loss at Transylvania By Jordan Marbaugh Sports information assistant LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Bluffton University men’s basketball team fell short of the conference tournament after a tough loss at Transylvania University on Saturday. The Beavers finished the season 11-14 and 7-11 in the HCAC. Transylvania improved to 19-6 and 14-4 in HCAC. The Pioneers will play Mount St. Joseph in the first round of the HCAC tournament Friday. The first half was a backand-forth battle to start as Transylvania led 7-6 after two free throws by senior Josh Fisher (Rockford/Parkway)

with 16:22 left. Transylvania then went on a 10-2 run to push the lead to 17-8 with 13:11 to play in first half. Bluffton battled back and after a layup by Will Pope (Somerville/Preble Shawnee), trailed 30-28 at the 6:48 mark. A three by Fisher with 2:55 on the clock gave the Beavers a 39-35 lead. The teams traded points as Bluffton took a 44-40 lead into the halftime break. The visitors opened the second half with a quick 5-0 spurt to push the lead to 49-40 with 19:22 left. A three by Fisher with 15:42 left pushed the Bluffton lead to 56-45. Transylvania answered with a 17-3 run to take a 62-59 lead with 11:08 remaining. With 6:35 to go, the Transylvania lead stood at 70-65. Fisher turned it around with a three to cut it to 70-68 with six minutes left. The senior standout followed with a jumper which tied the score at 70 a minute and a half later. Transylvania then used a 5-point possession to take control of the game. Tommy Sirkin drilled a three while Ethan Spurlin was fouled at the 2:44 mark. Spurlin cashed in with two makes at the line and the home team held off the Beavers for an 81-74 victory.

Long-missing WWII medal awarded in LA
By ROBERT JABLON The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Hyla Merin grew up without a father and for a long time never knew why. Her mother never spoke about the Army officer who died before Hyla was born. The scraps of information she gathered from other relatives were hazy: 2nd Lt. Hyman Markel was a rabbi’s son, brilliant at mathematics, the brave winner of a Purple Heart who died sometime in 1945. Aside from wedding photos of Markel in uniform, Merin never glimpsed him. But on Sunday, decades after he won it, Merin received her father’s Purple Heart, along with a Silver Star she never knew he’d won and a half-dozen other medals. Merin wiped away tears as the Silver Star was pinned to her lapel during a short ceremony attended by friends and family at her home in Westlake Village, a community straddling the Ventura and Los Angeles county lines. The other medals were presented on a plaque. “It just confirms what a great man he was,” Merin said tearfully. “He gave up his life for our country and our freedom. I’ll put it up in my house as a memorial to him and to those who served.” Merin’s mother, Celia, married Markel in 1941 when he already was in the military. They met at a Jewish temple in Buffalo, N.Y. About four months ago, the manager of a West Hollywood apartment building where Merin’s mother lived in the 1960s found a box containing papers and the Purple Heart while cleaning out some lockers in the laundry room, Merin said. The manager contacted Purple Hearts Reunited, a nonprofit organization that returns lost or stolen medals to vets or their families. A search led to Merin. She became “kind of emotional, because I don’t have a lot of pictures, I don’t have a lot of stories, and I’ve always been a crier,” she said. “My mother was always the stoic one, very strong.” Markel was killed in the last days of World War II on May 3, 1945, in Italy’s Po Valley while fighting German troops as an officer with the 88th Division of the 351st Infantry Regiment, said Zachariah Fike, the Vermont Army National Guard captain who founded Purple Hearts Reunited. “The accounts suggest that he was out on patrol and he got ambushed and he charged ahead and basically took out a machine gun position to save the rest of his guys,” said Fike, whose organization has returned some two dozen medals. “For that, he paid the ultimate sacrifice.” He was awarded the Purple Heart and Silver Star posthumously, but for some reason the family never was told about the Silver Star and it was never sent to them, Fike said. Merin’s mother never talked in detail to her daughter about Markel. “It was a very difficult topic for her. When my father died, she was seven months pregnant with me,” Merin said. Her mother briefly remarried when Merin was 10 but her stepfather died three years later, Merin said. Her mother moved into the apartment in 1960 and may have placed the Purple Heart in the locker then, Merin said. Her mother lived there until 1975 before moving away, and Merin’s aunt lived there until 2005. Another aunt lived there until 2009. They never spoke about what was in the locker, and the family must have missed the box when they took away the aunts’ possessions in 2005 and 2009, Merin said. Merin said that in addition to the Purple Heart, which Pike kept for framing, the box contained letters and other papers, and her father’s Jewish prayer book. “I found it very hard to look at. A lot of them were condolence letters,” she said. Merin’s mother was told about the discovery of the Purple Heart but didn’t live to see it — she died Feb. 1 at age 94.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2013 A situation that is very important to you and your dependents could take a substantial turn for the better in the year ahead. Old obstacles that have been standing in your way will dissipate as if they had never been. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- The secret to your success will be to treat life as a game, even those aspects of it that have been tough or boring. It’s OK to have some fun while you’re playing to win. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- When looking for the bluebird of happiness, you shouldn’t go searching outside your immediate surroundings. Staying within your domain is important, both for yourself and your circle of intimates. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You rarely have a difficult time knowing what to say to friends. Even though you’re likely to be surrounded by a larger crowd today, you’ll still find a way to charm everybody. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Conditions in general are usually favorable for you, and today will be no exception. The only difference is that most groups you encounter will have something to do with making money. How nice! GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Your natural ability to spread some sunshine and lift the thoughts of others will contribute greatly to your popularity. You’ll find that some people need a smile more than others. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Lucky you, because an effective ally who does nice things without drawing attention to it will single you out for special attention. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -You could be quite fortunate, not necessarily in the usual material ways, but in something that won’t rust and can’t be stolen. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -As long as you don’t establish too many objectives or excessively focus on one thing, you should be able to concentrate on a meaningful project. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Provided you have the will to win and never underestimate the opposition, you shouldn’t have any trouble bettering yourself and ousting all competitors. Keep plugging away. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -A number of unanticipated changes could occur in an area of importance. Be flexible, keep an eye on the competition and remember to roll with the punches. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Your quick wit and delightful charm are two of your best assets. Mutual benefits are likely from situations in which you can deal with others on a one-on-one basis. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The extra funds you’ll need in order to do something special will manifest as soon as the assets you’ve been putting away begin to appreciate. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2013 The course you’re presently steering looks to be good, with indications of a number of rewards waiting when you reach port. Be careful not to make any unwarranted changes, because then it would be another story. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Guard against a strong inclination to reward the undeserving while overlooking the virtuous. There’s a possibility you could do so in two separate cases. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -This could be a disconcerting day, because you can quickly go from being inspired to being disenchanted. Unless you get a handle on your moods, they’ll hamper you greatly. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You could do yourself a great disservice by reacting impulsively and blindly allowing one of your hunches to direct your actions. Check things out first. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you’ve been borrowing things lately, such as tools, materials or even cash, it’s best to clear matters up by returning everything as soon as possible. You’ll feel better about yourself. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Taken alone, your judgment isn’t too bad, but you must be careful not to be swayed by another who doesn’t have your best interest in mind. Don’t believe everything that you’re told. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t be impatient if your fellow man doesn’t grasp the essence of an idea as quickly as you’d like. It won’t hurt you to repeat what isn’t understood at first. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Normally, you are an extremely prudent and pragmatic person, but today you could become intrigued with a financial affair that could be extremely risky. Tread slowly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -When making a major household purchase, you should take things slowly. If you’re unsure about your choice, temporarily walk away and dismiss it from your mind until you’re positive. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- This could be one of those days when you could benefit from putting off what you don’t feel like doing, especially if it’s something extremely distasteful to you. Time will take care of it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Be extremely careful when handling the resources of another as well as your own. Indifference on your part could prove to be more costly than you thought. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Although you are usually a good salesperson, this might not be true at present due to carelessness. You could do or say something that would cause your prospect to back off. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- There is a strong likelihood that you could reveal something that you promised to keep secret. Keep a tight hold on your lips.

PARK Program

Making a real difference in real people’s lives.
Developed in 1988 by Licensed Physical Therapist, Bob Kann, the Parkinson’s Activity and Rehabilitation Klinic (PARK) is a natonally recognized activities and education program that helps people at every stage of Parkinson’s disease preserve mobility and independence to enjoy better quality of life for both patients and their families.

Use It or Lose It
Some people with Parkinson’s reduce their physical activities after their diagnosis. This only increases the disease’s effects.

(Continued from page 1) Ford Motor Co. engine plant and the nation’s only tank manufacturing plant. Like many of Ohio’s industrial cities, poverty is a problem in some neighborhoods, but the city’s unemployment has been nearly cut in half from two years ago and now stands at 7 percent. President Barack Obama’s campaign rally just days before the election last November marked the first time a sitting Democratic president visited Lima since Harry Truman stopped there in 1948. In the end, Obama’s rival, Republican Mitt Romney, handily won Allen County last year, scoring 61 percent of the vote to Obama’s 37 percent. By reversing the usual

speech-then-budget pattern of past governors, the former congressman is following a classic campaign format: Announce a big policy initiative, then hit the road to sell its merits. “He’s trying to seize the initiative a little bit, kind of take a proactive approach,” said Grant Neeley, a political scientist at the University of Dayton. “It’s the second time he’s taking the State of the State address outside the capital, so he feels like it’s a more receptive audience. He’s trying to paint himself as a proactive governor coming forward with all those proposals kind of rapid-fire.” To review: —In midDecember, Kasich announced his plan to borrow against future toll revenue on the Ohio

Turnpike to generate up to $3 billion for highway and bridge construction projects — On Jan. 9, the private nonprofit job-creation entity Kasich created, JobsOhio, announced with the administration that it was moving forward with the sale of $1.5 billion in bonds backed by future state liquor proceeds — disregarding a pending lawsuit against the entity’s constitutionality. — On Jan. 31, the administration released its much-anticipated overhaul of Ohio’s school funding formula. Kasich said the aim was helping students in poor districts compete by narrowing tax-base disparities, while rewarding innovation and expanding access to vouchers. The plan gave an overall boost to the K-12 bottom line, proposing $15.1 billion in spending over two years, but left the bulk of individual districts with little to no increase in the first year. — Four days later, Kasich unveiled a budget packed with significant policy overhauls. They included a restructuring of Ohio’s tax code to phase in reductions to income and small-business taxes and applying the state sales tax, at a slightly lower rate, to long list of additional services. The budget also incorporates an expansion of Medicaid through the federal health care overhaul, the new K-12 school-funding formula, and a new way of funding public colleges and universities that fosters cost-saving collaboration and emphasizes college completion over enrollment.

By DONNA GORDON BLANKINSHIP The Associated Press SEATTLE — Teaching parents to switch channels from violent shows to educational TV can improve preschoolers’ behavior, even without getting them to watch less, a study found. The results were modest and faded over time, but may hold promise for finding ways to help young children avoid aggressive, violent behavior, the study authors and other doctors said. “It’s not just about turning off the television. It’s about changing the channel. What children watch is as impor-

Study: Better TV might improve kids’ behavior
tant as how much they watch,” said lead author Dr. Dimitri Christakis, a pediatrician and researcher at Seattle Children’s Research Institute. The research was to be published online today by the journal Pediatrics. The study involved 565 Seattle parents, who periodically filled out TV-watching diaries and questionnaires measuring their child’s behavior. Half were coached for six months on getting their 3-to-5year-old kids to watch shows like “Sesame Street” and “Dora the Explorer” rather than more violent programs like “Power Rangers.” The results were

Winners in the God, Flag and Country contest held Sunday afternoon at Delphos Eagles were, from left, in the 10-11 year-old category: third place, Syndie McGue; second place, Trysten Smith; and first place, Samantha Knepper; in the 12-13 yearold category: second place, Meghan Ream; and first place, Lauren Grothaus. There were eight contestants in the 10-11 year-olds and two in the 12-13 year-old categories with no participants in the 14-15 year-olds. All winners received a savings bond and the first place contestants will go to district competition at 2 p.m. on March 24 at Lima Eagles. (Delphos Herald/Mary M. Grothaus)

compared with kids whose parents who got advice on healthy eating instead. At six months, children in both groups showed improved behavior, but there was a little bit more improvement in the group that was coached on their TV watching. By one year, there was no meaningful difference between the two groups overall. Lowincome boys appeared to get the most short-term benefit. “That’s important because they are at the greatest risk, both for being perpetrators of aggression in real life, but also being victims of aggression,” Christakis said.
