This is the second in a series examining multi-generational household dynamics. The people in this story are folks living in our community. Their names have been changed to protect their identity. BY STEPHANIE GROVES sgroves@delphosherald.com

A day in the life of a multi-generational family
“Alex is more like one of our kids rather than a grandkid. Everyone (Aunt Maria and Uncle Ethan) takes care of him; whatever he wants, he rules the roost.”
— Karl, husband, father, grandfather bed with Mama (Theresa), Karl places the sippy cup on the bedside table and firmly plants a pillow against Alex to prevent him from rolling to the opposite edge of the bed. “It’s pretty normal,” Karl explained. “By 5:15 a.m., I’m out the door and going to work.” Five days a week, Theresa, 44, hits the ground running. In the morning, she helps her son, Ethan, who attends grade school, and daughter, Maria, who is in high school, with their morning regimens all the while attending to her grandson’s needs. In addition, she gets herself ready for a busy day at work. After the morning ritual full of a flurry of activity is complete, everyone gathers their coats, books, backpacks — don’t forget the diaper bag and bottles — and shuffles out the door piling into the minivan. “The house is like a zoo — a bunch of animals,” Theresa said jokingly, yet with a serious tone. Theresa makes sure everyone is secure in their seat and sets off for her destinations delivering each child to their respective school. First Ethan and then Maria are dropped off before the bell at 8 a.m. Theresa then drives to the babysitter’s house, where she spends 10-15 minutes unloading and delivering Alex and all the daily necessities to the baby’s caregiver. After a brief conversation about his new tooth poking through his lower gum, slight nasal congestion or a particularly funny singing performance from the night before, Theresa is off and running to clock in at her place of employment. This scenario probably sounds very common to most people, with exception of the grandson, Alex, whose mother is Shelly, Karl and Theresa’s eldest daughter. As a matter of fact, at approximately 7:20 a.m. through the week, Shelly, 22, is just getting home from working third shift. At this point, Theresa and the kids are finishing breakfast and ready to sprint from the house to get their days started. Mostly, Shelly gets her rest through the day and takes care of chores and other responsibilities later in the day. By 4:30 p.m. everyone is home. The kids are playing together and the adults are thinking about dinner. “Alex is more like one of our kids rather than a grandkid,” Karl described the close bond shared with all members of the family. “Everyone (Aunt Maria and Uncle Ethan) takes care of him; whatever he wants, he rules the roost.” Shelly is awake and also spending time caring for Alex, which gives Theresa and Karl, depending on who’s turn it is to prepare dinner, time to devise a meal plan. Since Alex is lactose intolerant, meals have to accommodate his special dietary needs. “We cook around that,” Theresa explained. Once dinner is over, the cleanup begins; dishes, trash, straightening up and putting toys away. “The kids each have chores and the follow-through with them can sometimes be a challenge,” Karl mused. “It’s a little crowded. There’s more toys than three kids should have. As the evening progresses, Karl and Theresa might be running the kids to a sports practice or game or tutoring Ethan with his coursework or taking the See MULTI, page 2

DELPHOS —They come from all walks of life. No matter their culture, economic or social status or family structure, these are the people who are doing more with less, giving an abundance of their time caring for others and most of the time, setting their own needs aside for the sake of their loved ones. These are the families that are inter-weaved into the fabric of our community. The Rigors of the Day Glug, glug, glug, glug, glug.

Sinkhole that swallowed Florida man ‘unstable’

SEFFNER, Fla. — In a matter of seconds, the earth opened under Jeff Bush’s bedroom and swallowed him up like something out of a horror movie. About the only thing left was the TV cable running down into the hole. Bush, 37, was presumed dead Friday, the victim of a sinkhole — a hazard so common in Florida that state law requires home insurers to provide coverage against the danger. The sinkhole, estimated at 20 feet across and 20 feet deep, caused the home’s concrete floor to cave in around 11 p.m. Thursday as everyone in the Tampa-area house was

turning in for the night. It gave way with a loud crash that sounded like a car hitting the house and brought Bush’s brother running. Jeremy Bush said he jumped into the hole but couldn’t see his brother and had to be rescued himself by a sheriff’s deputy who reached out and pulled him to safety as the ground crumbled around him. “The floor was still giving in and the dirt was still going down, but I didn’t care. I wanted to save my brother,” Jeremy Bush said through tears Friday in a neighbor’s yard. “But I just couldn’t do nothing.” He added: “I could swear I heard him hollering my name See SINKHOLE, page 2

For The Record They don’t make ’em like they used to Sinkhole
A friend’s refrigerator went out last week after only seven years of use. According to an appliance guy, that was about right. I can remember having the same avacodo green refrigerator in our kitchen for umpteen years. It wasn’t really bad when we got rid of it; it was just so old that it was a pretty good bet it would give out over the weekend or at some other inopportune time. It was relegated to the garage and a shiny new one took its place. The same can be said for the range top. It was set in the countertop and had a really cool control panel on the wall. A modern, black, flat cook top took its place and come to find out, its life expectancy is only about seven years. The old cook top made it through 20-some years before it became a questionable risk. It even survived through a small Christmas Eve fire when I left papers a little too close to a burner and a button was inadvertently pushed by an errant item on the counter. Luckily, the mess was quickly swept into the nearby sink and doused with water. Many other household items have joined the “disposable” list. Washers and dryers, DVD players, boom boxes, TVs and like are no longer “fixtures” in our homes. It makes me wonder if they are not made as well, if we as consumers have directed the “need” for newer and better every few years. With technology outpacing itself, there

is always something faster, better and on the “must-have” list. Computers are practically obsolete by the time we get everything out of the box and set up. None of our teens own cassette tapes. Wonder what they would think of the 8-tracks I have tucked away from a “few” years back. We are keeping up with the Joneses, who are keeping up with someone else and so on. Along the way, we have given up reliability, consistency and the satisfaction of getting our money’s worth. We don’t seem to mind shelling out our hard-earned cash for something that we will be eagerly replacing again in a few years for the latest and greatest model. The switch on the wall lamp in the spare bedroom took a dive the other day. That lamp has hung on the wall for as long as I can remember. I’m seriously considering having it fixed.

whole family on a trip to shop for groceries. The Balancing Act The couple have limited personal time — spending quality time together or pursuing individual interests — so, they take advantage of any free time they can get. Karl has a home gym set up in the basement, which provides him a limited amount of personal space and time for reflection a few days a week for about an hour. The space is not off limits to the

kids and infrequently, one of them might come downstairs during a workout and watch television. Both Karl and Theresa would like more time for their relationship. “It’s rare to have time together and be alone,” Theresa glanced at her husband. “More time would be nice.” Communication is key. For Karl and Theresa, there is little time for chit chat let alone a very important conversation demanding their undivided attention. While the family

is at home — which is most of the time — it is impossible to have a continuous dialogue. “It’s tough when everybody wants something at he same time,” Theresa explained. Both Karl and Theresa agreed. The majority of their conversations take place driving to and from work. Both have some flexibility with their jobs when it comes to squeezing some time into their schedules to handle family matters. “Important conversations, requiring limited interrup-


to help him.” Officials lowered equipment into the sinkhole and saw no signs of life, said Hillsborough County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Jessica Damico. A dresser and the TV set had vanished down the hole, along with most of Bush’s bed. “All I could see was the cable wire running from the TV going down into the hole. I saw a corner of the bed and a corner of the box spring and the frame of the bed,” Jeremy Bush said. At a news conference Friday night, county administrator Mike Merrill described the home as “seriously unstable.” He said no one can go in the home because officials were afraid of another collapse and losing more lives. The soil around the home was very soft and the sinkhole was expected to grow. Engineers said they may have to demolish the small, sky-blue house, even though from the outside there appeared to be nothing wrong with the fourbedroom, concrete-wall structure, built in 1974. “I cannot tell you why it has not collapsed yet,” said Bill Bracken, the owner of engineering company called on to assess the sinkhole and home.

Answers to Friday’s questions: Illinois and Michigan, out of the 10 proposed by Thomas Jefferson in 1784, were given to states carved out of the Northwest Territory. Jefferson had proposed them as Illinoia and Michigania. Jefferson’s other suggestions were Assenisippis, Cheronesus, Metropotamia, Pelipsia, Polypotamia, Saratoga and Sylvania. Jerry Seinfield, as a struggling young comic, had a recurring role on the TV sitcom Benson until he was fired after three episodes. He played Frankie, a mail boy who was always trying to tell jokes. Today’s questions: What was the title of the grueling weeklong U.S. bicycle race sponsored by celebrity entrepreneur Donald Trump? What controversial doctor did President Richard M. Nixon dub “the most dangerous man in America?” Answers in Monday’s Herald.

The gathering of women also took a moment to discuss each decade and the memorable trends and fads that they remember from that time period. Eventgoers also reflected on the look of women today. In 2013, less is more is no longer the trend as women noted that the pairing of many prints and colors together is becoming the new look. The decorated tables for the luncheon were each sponsored by local organizations that offer services to women. Door prizes were also donated by local businesses and residents.

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate Ivan lives at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade. He likes TV shows, art and his few stray friends. And he is a gorilla who lives behind glass walls, with not much memory of the jungle, and tells his own story on the pages of this book. Readers have compared him to Babe, Charlotte and Wilbur, made famous in other beloved stories. One day, Ruby, a baby elephant fresh from the

“Just as we are often moved to merriment for no other reason than that the occasion calls for seriousness, so we are correspondingly serious when invited too freely to be amused.” — Agnes Repplier, American essayist (1858-1950)

DEAR EDITOR: I am writing in response to the person that attacked the character of Delphos St. John’s fans based on “Hear say” — if you didn’t attend the games, how can you have an opinion?? In the many games that I attended in person over the years, I’ve seen the newspaper reading act used by the student cheering section many times. As a matter as fact during big tournament games in the late 1970’s at Ottawa-Glandorf, we pulled out newspapers on more than one occasion. Delphos St.John’s game with New Breman for first place in the M.A.C. certainly qualified as a big game. It’s not being rude as you stated, but good clean fun between opposing schools. Your second put down of St. John’s was the removal of “clothing” from the Ottoville fans before the match up with the Lady Jays. Our school didn’t allow the fans to bring in boxing gloves inside the gym for obvious reasons. If you actually attend an Ottoville girls game along the tournament trail, the O.H.S.A.A. also says you can not bring in signs, banners, or noise makers to the game. Also, wanted to give high marks to Ottoville’s Coach Kleman. He silenced the Ottoville student cheering section during pregame warmups when they were harassing a certain Lady Jays player. He then again told them to stop the chant “double digits” in the 3rd period when DSJ finally got its 10th point. Coach Kleman is a class act and showed the real meaning of sportsmanship. Good Luck to the Big Green for a deep run in the tournaments. Delphos St. John’s fans are not rude — they simply support their high school athletes just like any other community would support their team. Thank You Larry Heiing 1981 Ottawa-Glandorf graduate current Delphos St. John’s fan


So tell me, where would we be without barcodes these days? Can you even think of a place where they are not employed? Ever notice how frustrated check out clerks can get when the bar code can’t be read on the item you are purchasing. Does anyone even remember ten key adding machines? This was the cash register when I was a kid. No no, no I am not old enough to remember when you had a crank on the cash register so that the numbers popped up in the top of the machine. But I do remember going to the corner grocery and the clerk always had a pencil behind his ear – you know one of those flat pencils that got sharpened with a whittling knife. The brown paper (we didn’t have a choice of paper or plastic) bag the groceries were put in served as the writing tablet and each item was listed and totaled up the old fashioned way…. 8 +7 is 15, carry the one to the ten’s place…. This is supposed to be an article about postal history, right? Well, it is. The first patent for a bar code type product (US Patent #2,612,994) was issued to inventors Joseph Woddland, Jordin Johanson and Bernard Silver on Oct. 7, 1952. Primarily the need to design such a system came from the needs of your local grocer. With the multitude of products, there needed to be a better way to keep track of inventory. Although designed in the early 50’s it was several years before the barcode was fully operational. Most of us became aware of barcodes in all aspects of our daily life during the mid 1980s. In 1963 the Post Office Department instituted the Zone Improvement Program – ZIP code and Mr. ZIP was born. The code was actually invented by Robert Aurand Moon in the 1940’s. A ZIP code is a structured number which helps to locate the address where an item is being mailed to. The entire US is divided into 10 zones, and the first digit of the ZIP code tells you

which zone the mail is to be sent to. The next two digits specify the metropolitan area or regional center in that zone and the last two digits indicate the local post office or delivery area. This is what you and I knew as a five (5) digit zip. Once addresses or areas were broken down to just a five digit number it was easy for the post office to begin automating its sorting practices. Bar coding of mail began in 1965. I remember the monstrous machines that first required 16 people to operate in order to sort mail. Then came the Optical Character Readers (OCRs). Only 3 or 4 people would run a similar sized machine and sort almost twice as much mail. It wasn’t a very fine sorting; not like that of today where the mail is actually sorted in delivery sequence (at 36,000 pieces per hour) so it can be placed directly into a delivery vehicle without requiring any further sortation. That five digit barcode has grown over the years to a twelve digit barcode. There are numerous types of bar codes used in grocery stores, retail outlets, and medical operations, almost anywhere that records need to be kept. The postal service employs the PostNET barcode system - which stands for Postal Numerical Encoding Technique. I mentioned the twelve digit barcode…how did that happen? Once the five digit code was in place, in 1983 USPS added four more digits – your Zip +4. This furthered our ability to make a finer sort to decrease the amount of mail that had to be handled by employees. Now we added two more digits so that we can sequence the mail right down to the way the carrier delivers it. For example, on Main Street a carrier might start at 101 then 103, then 105 where he crosses the street and goes back down the even side, 106 then 104, then 102. Of course if the people at 104 Main Street happen to be on vacation

and they notified the post office, that mail will be sorted to a tray just for mail placed on hold. This way the carrier doesn’t even have to handle it on the street and bring the mail back to the office. So have you kept track—five digits + four digits + two digits, that makes 11 – so where did the 12th digit go? In order to have the sorting machines check their work and make sure that they didn’t misread a barcode, the twelfth digit is a check digit. If the machine has made an error, the check digit would end up being wrong as well and the letter would be rejected from the final sorting and placed in a tray for manual inspection. Next time I will teach you how to decode those funny little lines. Thanks to all who helped make the Second Annual Gala Celebration a big success. More than 150 people purchased tickets to come to this event. The food was great! The wine was flowing! And some very deserving volunteers were recognized for their contributions. Mary Krohn won not only a wine basket but a trip to either Lake Tahoe or Palm Springs, Calif. It should be a great time when she is off from teaching school. I keep running in to people who haven’t heard about our next trip to Alaska leaving on July 27 and returning on Aug. 5. This will be a trip of a lifetime with everything from the opportunity to go whitewater rafting, kayaking around Orca Island in the Gulf of Alaska, to airboat, dogsled, flightseeing rides up onto the glaciers and across the Kenai Peninsula and Fjords. As they say, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We have three seats left – that would make just 17 of us in our group and I bet you’ll know 90 percent of them. Your own personal guide, your schedule, your choices. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by – it will probably never come again.

One Year Ago • Fort Jennings Cub Scout Pack 230 recently held its 2012 Pinewood Derby. Overall pack winner was Nathan Sealts. First-place winners included Josh Pack, Eric Wieging, Chase Neidert, Blake Schram and Alex Wieging. 25 Years Ago – 1988 • Sisters Gina and Molly Calvelage were winners in the Rising Star regional talent contest held recently in Columbus. Gina took first place in the novelty jazz dance and pompom routine for 16-18 year olds. Molly, competing for the first time, took third with a pompom routine for 12-13 year olds. The girls are daughters of Jim and Phyllis (Phud) Calvelage of Delphos. • Joyce Best’s fourth-grade class at Franklin Elementary School studied famous Americans, did a report and made floats representing them. They held a parade Tuesday for parents and senior citizens. Winning first place with their Dolly Parton float were Jennifer Barnes, Marie Lehman, Eric Cross and Jenny Harter. • Alan Etzkorn, driven by a “never say die” attitude, won the first annual City Championship Singles Bowling Tournament at the Delphos Recreation Center. In the emotion-filled championship match between Keith Fischbach and Etzkorn, Fischbach led the match by as much as 18 pins until an errant ball in the seventh frame opened the door for Etzkorn. Etzkorn took full advantage by throwing four strikes in a row to finish with a 234-229 come-from-behind victory. 50 Years Ago – 1963 • The Jefferson Wildcats fought their way into the finals of the Allen County tournament with a 57-49 victory over Harrod in a semi-final tilt in Bluffton Friday night.

I am obsessed with Glee. There, I said it. I don’t know if it’s “cool” or not to like this show but I love it. I don’t watch it when it’s on, but I watch on Hulu, and I have marathon sessions. Sure, it can be cheesy and contrived but I am captivated in spite of its flaws. I’m telling you, my love for this show is unconditional. So why, you might ask, am I so enamored with this show? How do I love Glee? Let me count the ways: It focuses on important, relevant issues such as bullying. There are several gay characters, even a transgendered a character, and as we’re all aware, people tend to be afraid of what they don’t understand.

I am ‘Glee’ful
Glee tackles these issues headon, exploring the reasons why people are scared of and therefore treat anyone who is different poorly. I generally cry at least once during every episode; I find it so moving. The music. I love the singing, the dancing, the wholehearted way every actor and actress throws themselves into the roles. The mash-ups are my favorite, when they combine two semi-related songs and turn them into a brand-new musical extravaganza. Jane Lynch. I especially fancy this woman, whose oneline zingers are simply amazing every single episode. She is wonderfully hilarious. The clothes. I love how every character has a distinct way of dressing. I’m particularly fond of Rachel Berry’s wardrobe. Lea Michele plays her perfectly and she’s blossomed from a nerdy bookworm to a gorgeous siren from last season to this. I adore her both ways. The slushies. Just about every episode, at least one member of the glee club gets slushied, when “popular” students throw extra-large slushies in the faces of glee club members. It chills me to the bone just watching. I can’t believe these actors actually go through that. Lima, Ohio. That’s right. Lima gets recognized on a regular basis because that is where this otherwise fictional school and glee club are located. Guest stars. Glee is famous for its A-list roster. Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Britney Spears are just a few of the celebrities to make appearances on the show, some multiple times. They are all excellent. I could go on, but I’ll stop there. Seven is a lucky number. I covered the most important reasons. To make this a complete top ten list, I urge you to watch the show yourself if you haven’t. Sure, it’s overthe-top. It can be unrealistic. Regardless, it features poignant themes and always roots for the underdog. That, alone, makes me “Glee”ful.

WASHINGTON — To the world — when the state controls the message. To recap: Woodward recently wrote an beyond the Beltway, it might not mean much that Bob Woodward of the famed op-ed for The Washington Post placing the Watergate duo went public with his recent sequester debacle on Obama’s desk and accusing the president of “moving the goal White House run-in. posts” by asking for more tax increases. This would be an oversight. Before the story was published, It also may not mean much that the White House press corps got teed off when Woodward called the White House to tell they weren’t allowed access to President officials it was coming. A shouting match Obama as he played golf with Tiger ensued between Woodward and Gene Sperling, Obama’s economic adviser, folWoods. This, too, would be an oversight. lowed by an email in which Though not comparable — one appeared to be a KATHLEEN PARKER Sperling said Woodward “will regret staking out that veiled threat aimed at one of claim.” the nation’s most respected Though the tone was journalists and the other a conciliatory, and Sperling minor blip in the scheme of apologized for raising his things — both are part of a voice, the message nonepattern of behavior by the theless caused Woodward Obama administration that to bristle. suggests not just thin skin Again, Woodward’s kneecaps are probbut a disregard for the role of the press and ably safe, but the challenge to his facts, a gradual slide toward a state media. This is where oversight can become and therefore to his character, was unusual given Woodward’s stature. And, how, by dangerous. Understandably, everyday Americans the way, might Woodward come to regret may find this discussion too inside baseball it? Sperling’s words, though measured, to pay much mind. Why can’t the president could be read as: “You’ll never set foot in play a little golf without a press gaggle this White House again.” When reporters lose access to the White watching? As for Woodward, it’s not as though the White House was threatening House, it isn’t about being invited to the annual holiday party. It’s about having to bust his kneecaps. Add to these likely sentiments the fact access to the most powerful people on the that Americans increasingly dislike the planet as they execute the nation’s busiso-called mainstream media, sometimes ness. Inarguably, Woodward has had greater for good reason. Distrust of the media, encouraged by alternative media seeking White House access than any other jourto enhance their own standing, has become nalist in town. Also inarguably, he would a useful tool to the very powers the Fourth survive without it. He has filled a library Estate was constitutionally endowed to shelf with books about the inner workings monitor. When the president can bypass of this and other administrations, the fact of media to reach the public, it is not far- which makes current events so remarkable. Woodward, almost 70, is Washington’s fetched to imagine a time — perhaps now?

Woodward and Sperling

Point of View

Reporter Emeritus. His facts stand up to scrutiny. His motivations withstand the test of objectivity. Sperling obviously assumed that Woodward wouldn’t take offense at the suggestion that he not only was wrong but was endangering his valuable proximity to power. He assumed, in other words, that Woodward would not do his job. This was an oversight. This is no tempest in a teapot, but rather is the leak in the dike. Drip by drip, the Obama administration has demonstrated its intolerance for dissent and its contempt for any who stray from the White House script. Yes, all administrations are sensitive to criticism and all push back when such criticism is deemed unfair or inaccurate. But no president since Richard Nixon has demonstrated such overt contempt for the messenger. And, thanks to technological advances in social media, Obama has been able to bypass traditional watchdogs as no other has. More to the point, the Obama White House is, to put it politely, fudging as it tries to place the onus of the sequester on Congress. And, as has become customary, officials are using the Woodward spat to distract attention. As Woodward put it: “This is the old trick … of making the press … the issue, rather than what the White House has done here.” Killing the messenger is a time-honored method of controlling the message, but we have already spilled that blood. And the First Amendment’s protection of a free press, the purpose of which is to check power and constrain government’s ability to dictate the lives of private citizens, was no oversight.

Lifeline of Ohio Community Education Manager Ron Packard teaches students facts about organ, eye and tissue donation during a classroom visit. (Submitted photo) By Kaitlyn Thompson Community Outreach Coordinator Lifeline of Ohio Through the Community Educator program, Lifeline of Ohio visits high school and college classrooms in central and southeast Ohio to educate students about the facts and myths surrounding organ, eye and tissue donation. Students’ curiosity about the details of the organ donation and transplant process frequently reflect questions we hear in our own communities. We share a few of those questions and answers below as a benefit to all readers. Q: Can you choose to be an organ donor only when you die? A: Being a registered organ donor, or saying ‘yes’ when you get your driver’s license at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, means you are agreeing to donate when you die. People can donate organs while they are living by arranging it with a hospital, such as the Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University. The organs that can be donated while a person is living are: kidney, lobe of the liver, lobe of the lung, part of the small intestine and very rarely, part of the pancreas. A person has to be over 18 years of age to be a living organ donor. Q: What happens if a recipient cannot be found in time to transplant a donor’s organs? A: We do not recover the heart, liver, lungs, pancreas or small intestine from a donor unless the organ has a place to go. We know exactly who will receive that organ before it is recovered. For example, the heart must be transplanted within four to six hours after it is removed from the donor – we don’t recover a heart and then hope to find someone who would take it in four hours. Because kidneys can stay outside the body longer, sometimes they can be recovered before we find the right candidate match. In the case of weather or other emergencies that prevent us from getting the organ to the best candidate, we could pass the organ to a recipient who might not be the best candidate but is still a match and we can physically get it to them. Otherwise the organ can go to a research institute, or it will be left in the body to be buried with the donor. Q: What is currently happening in the world of brain donation, if anything? A: We can donate our brain for education or research. For example, universities are studying how concussions might affect the brain after a long period of time. They are also looking at issues like autism and Alzheimer’s, too. Usually a person has to set up donating a brain with a research program in advance of their death because it would be considered a special donation. The brain is not something we recover. Q: Are organs sewn together after donation or will the tissue grow together? A: When an organ is transplanted, it is sewn into place by sewing the blood vessels that go to it. This gives the organ the blood it needs to work in the recipient (the person who got the organ) and holds it in place. The vessels will heal and the stitches dissolve. Q: Do you have to die to have your corneas donated? A: Yes, a person can die of brain death or cardiac death (this means the heart stops beating) and donate cornea. We do not take cornea from someone who is living. Organ and tissue donation saves and heals millions of lives every year. Be a hero and register as an organ, eye and tissue donor today at www.donatelifeohio.org.

McConnahea goes 1-2 Friday; to wrestle for 7th place today
effort to stay alive against Reading’s Joe Dilbert (3810) - a foe that McCoinnahea had beaten in the Kettering Fairmont District 3/4 match. He did so with an 8-2 decision, assuring his place on the podium. “The first match, he was just so aggressive. He took it to me right away,” McConnahea said. “I wasn’t nervous today at all. He was just that good of a good wrestler. I had to put it behind me.” Which he did, coming back to improve his mark to 47-2 by outwrestling Dilbert. “I couldn’t wait for the match; I just wanted to get out there and compete again,” McConnahea added. “We really didn’t talk strategy between matches. Coach (Mike) Wilson just told me to go out and wrestle, enjoy myself and not worry about it. That’s what I did last week at Districts after losing my first match of the season and that is what I did today; I just went out and wrestled; I took it to him. “I just need to get ready for my match later tonight and see what I can do.” Wilson figured there was no secret to the outcomes of the matches. “You had two different ;levels of wrestling and two different opponents. There was no comparison,” he explained. “We were familiar with the Reading kid because we wrestled him at Districts last week. Colin just put the previous loss behind him and refocused. The goal all along was to get on the podium and he got that done. We’ll see how high up he ends.” Referring to his two other seniors - Geoff Ketcham and Quinten Wessell - who were beaten out Thursday night, Wilson noted what the real key is to winning matches at state.

Wildlife Ohio
OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife —— Statewide Rainbow Trout releases begin COLUMBUS — More than 98,000 rainbow trout will be released this spring at 63 Ohio public lakes and ponds. The first release was on Friday at Adams Lake in Adams County. Rainbow trout releases will take place through May 3 and the stocking of these public lakes and ponds are excellent opportunities for families to fish together. Fishing for catchablesized trout is a great way to introduce y o u n g people to the outdoors. Rainbow trout are raised at state fish hatcheries and are 10-13 inches before they are released by the DOW. The daily catch limit for inland lakes is five trout. Some locations will feature special angler events, including youthonly fishing, on the day of the scheduled trout release. Contact the nearest wildlife district office for specific information. Additional information about trout releases is available at wildohio.com or by calling 800-WILDLIFE. Anglers age 16 and older must have an Ohio fishing license to fish state public waters. The 2013-14 fishing license is available now and is valid through Feb. 28, 2014. An annual resident fishing license costs $19. A 1–day fishing license costs $11 for residents and non-residents; this may also be redeemed for credit toward the purchase of an annual fishing license. Ohio residents born on or before Dec. 31, 1937, may obtain a free fishing license where licenses are sold. Persons age 66 and older who were born on or after Jan. 1, 1938, and have resided in Ohio for the past six months are eligible to purchase the reduced-cost resident senior license for $10. Sales of fishing licenses, along with the Sport Fish Restoration (SFR) program, continue to fund the operation of the DOW’s fish hatcheries. No state tax dollars are used for this activity; this is a user-pay, userbenefit program. The SFR is a partnership between federal and state government, industry and anglers/boaters. When anglers purchase rods, reels, fishing tackle, fish-finders and motor boat fuel, they pay an excise tax. The federal government collects these taxes and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service administers and disburses these funds to state agencies. These funds are used to acquire habitat, produce and stock fish, conduct research and surveys, provide aquatic education to youth and acquire and develop boat accesses. —— So You Spot A Coyote. What Should You Do? AKRON – Ohio wildlife biologists are frequently contacted by concerned residents who spot coyotes. Yes, frequently, but this is not cause for alarm. Coyotes are highlyadaptable animals that are regularly viewed by humans throughout the state. Here are a few steps to keep in mind when you encounter a coyote in the Buckeye State. 1. Understand that coyotes are common throughout Ohio’s 88 counties and are even regularly seen within city limits. 2. There are no wolves living in the wild in Ohio. 3. If you spot a coyote on your property, make sure to remove all “attractants” to deter the coyote from returning. This includes removing garbage and pet food before nightfall and cleaning up around the grill. 4. Coyotes prey primarily on small mammals, such as rabbits and mice. However, interactions with domestic pets do occur sometimes. Keep small dogs and cats inside or leash them when outside. 5. Occasionally, an inquisitive coyote will stay put and watch you curiously. Clap your hands and shout; the coyote will likely move on at this point. 6. If the coyote visiting your yard does not respond to harassment techniques such as loud noises or is presenting a conflict even after removing attractants from your yard, contact a nuisance trapper. For a fee, these trappers use highly-regulated techniques to reduce urban wildlife conflicts. Coyote populations in rural areas can be managed through legal hunting and trapping methods. Consult the yearly “Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations” digest for more information. ——ODNR announces Ohio Wetlands Habitat Stamp Competition winner COLUMBUS — The artwork of Ohio native Adam Grimm won first place in this year’s Ohio Wetlands Habitat Stamp Design Competition sponsored by the ODNR. Grimm’s painting of a Northern pintail will appear on the Ohio wetlands habitat stamp issued in fall 2014. The winning entry was selected from a field of 18 original paintings submitted by artists from nine states, including 10 entries from Ohio. The competition was held Feb. 23 at the Ohio Ducks Unlimited annual banquet in Licking County. Second-place honors went to Daniel Allard of Pickerington with his painting of canvasbacks; the third-place entry was painted by Jeffrey Hoff from South Dakota with his painting of a redhead duck. Last year’s winner, Jeffery Klinefelter of Indiana, will see his painting of a pair of blue-winged teals appear on the 2013 wetlands habitat stamp. Approximately 24,000 Ohio wetland habitat stamps were purchased last year, according to the DOW. The proceeds from stamp sales help fund vital wetland habitat restoration projects in Ohio. These habitats are important to many resident wildlife species, including state-endangered trumpeter swans, wetland birds, amphibians and numerous migratory species. ——Register for the West Central Wildlife Habitat Workshop HOUSTON — A habitat workshop series is being offered to landowners wishing to improve habitat for wildlife and other conservation goals. The series is sponsored by the DOW, Pheasants Forever (PF), Natural Resources Conservation S e r v i c e (NRCS), The Ohio State University Extension, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the Ohio Soil and Water Conservation Districts. The first workshop will take place from 6-8:30 p.m. March 14 at the Newport Sportsman Club located at 5801 Rangeline Rd., Houston, OH 45333. This will be a free educational event with a meal to be served and reference materials to take home. The purpose of the workshop series is to offer the landowner and wildlife enthusiast a well-rounded approach to managing their property to establish and maintain wildlife habitat. Each workshop will focus on a specific habitat type or wildlife species with topics ranging from grasslands and wetlands to woodlands. Participants will learn techniques for managing land to benefit both game species and wildlife in general as well as information on funding and technical assistance. The workshop is free but participants must preregister with the Darke Soil & Water Conservation District at (937) 5481715, ext. 3; deadline is March 11. ——Special Youth Turkey Hunt set for Paint Creek State Park HILLSBORO — Young turkey hunters will be able to take advantage of a permit-only Youth Turkey Hunt at Paint Creek State Park during the 2013 spring turkey season.

Blue Jays win Division IV Sectional finals
BY BRIAN BASSETT DHI Correspondent VAN WERT — St. John’s canned four three-pointers in the last four minutes of the second quarter to pull away from Lincolnview and win Friday night’s Division IV sectional final 59-40. The Blue Jays (175) will play New Bremen (also 17-5) in Tuesday night’s first district semifinal at 6:15. The Lancers’ season ends at 10-14. It was a dandy, intense battle for the first 11 minutes. There were three ties and three lead changes in the first quarter, but the Jays ended that period with a 6-0 run — layups by Andy Grothouse, Ryan Buescher, and Curtis Geise — to lead 12-8. Buescher extended that run to 8-0 with two free throws to begin the second stanza. Lincolnview sophomore Justis Dowdy ended that string with his specialty, a twisting layup. That started a trading of buckets — Blue Jay Seth Bockey layup, two free throws by Lancer Nick Leeth, pull-up elbow jumper by Geise, reverse layup by Dowdy — 18-14, Delphos, at the 5:33 mark. That, however, was the point at which the game started to get away from Lincolnview. Delphos’s Eric Clark put back his own blocked shot, and Ryan Koester scored on a runout. Lancer Kade Carey drained a trey from the left wing to cut it to 22-17, but then came the Blue Jay three-point barrage. The triples came from Grothouse, Geise, Koester, and Koester again — and the lead was 36-21 at the half. In those first 16 minutes, Lincolnview actually out-shot the Jays, percentage wise, 56 percent (9 of 16) to 50 percent (14 of 28). However, Delphos had many more shots, courtesy of a 12-4 rebounding margin and only two turnovers, com-

Ryan Buescher goes strong to the basket and collects a foul from Lancer Conner McCleery. In the second quarter, the Jays expanded a 4-point lead to 15 and never looked backed in claiming the Sectional title. pared to the Lancers’ seven. When the Blue Jays started the second half with a 10-2 run, there was little doubt about the eventual outcome. “We got off to a little bit of a slow start, but I give credit to Lincolnview for doing that,” said Blue Jay coach Aaron Elwer. “They came out with great effort, a good game plan. It took us a little bit to get going, but once we got going…our team is really starting to develop as a defensive unit and really making it difficult for teams. I think our physicality, our ability to rebound took over. Then our stretch there offensively where we started to make shots, we were able to extend our lead.” “They’ve played hard for me for 24 games,” said Lancer coach Brett Hammons. “I’ve never once questioned their effort. They got after it. We played a good quarter and a half to start the basketball game, getting loose balls, making shots. We played them pretty

tough. We contested them, they just made shots, and when you get down against a team as good as Delphos St. John’s, it’s tough to come back.” St. John’s won all of the statistical battles, except for turnovers — 16 for Lincolnview, 17 for the Jays (eight in the ragged fourth quarter). Delphos shot 47 percent (22 of 47) from the field, Lincolnview 38 percent (16 of 41). The Blue Jays hit 83 percent (10 of 12) of their free throws, the Lancers 70 percent (7 of 10). St. John’s dominated the boards 30-16. Ten Jays got into the scoring column, led by Geise, Buescher, and Koester with 16, 10, and 10. Leeth had 12 for the Lancers. It was the final high school basketball game for Lancer seniors Leeth, Carey, Mark Evans, Brooks Ludwig, and Angelo Katalenas. “Those five seniors are the leaders of the team,” said Hammons. “I’ve been with ‘em for six years, since seventh grade. It’s nice to have that kind of character to lead this team, to get them to play that hard. Knowing that I’ll never have the opportunity to coach them again is extremely difficult.”

that he was “not in a good place mentally.” An hour later, he released a statement through his management company that he couldn’t concentrate because of a sore wisdom tooth. Woods looked as if he might join him. After mixing birdies with bogeys, Woods went bunker-to-bunker, over the green, short of the green and wound up with a double bogey on the 13th hole that put him one shot under the cut line with five holes to play. Instead of the second straight week when No. 1 and No. 2 were gone early, Woods answered with a shot into 5 feet for birdie, a 6-foot par putt on the 16th hole, a par save from the back bunker on the 17th that was easier than it looked, and a par save from near the grandstand by the 18th

green that was harder than it looked. He wound up with another 70 to make the cut on the number, nine shots out of the lead. “I didn’t quite have my game like I did yesterday,” Woods said. “I hit it much better yesterday, but I putted better today, so it all evened out.” Also having a tough time was tennis star Serena Williams, following in Woods’ large gallery. She took a picture of the 14-time major champion after his tee shot on the 17th and was scolded by security. The PGA Tour does not allow photos on competition days. “Apparently u can’t take pics. This security … yelled at me,” she tweeted. A few minutes later, she posted the photo. And she finished with one last tweet: “In my Defense peeps always take


pics of tennis players.” There was no reason to get a snapshot of Camilo Villegas, who joined a dubious list of PGA Tour players who went from first-to-worst. Villegas, playing primarily on sponsor exemptions this year because he lost his full status, opened with a 64 for his best start in more than a year. The Colombian was 13 shots worse on Friday in a round of 77 that caused him to miss the cut. The last player to do that was Jim Renner at the Travelers Championship in 2011. Thompson had a 65 and will play in the final group with Guthrie, the first time all year the PGA Tour will have twosomes on the weekend. Boo Weekley held it together for another day and shot 67 to finish two shots behind

at 133, along with Graham DeLaet of Canada. Behind them was an impressive collection of players. Geoff Ogilvy finally began holing some putts and shot 66 to go into the weekend three shots behind, along with Lee Westwood (68), Charles Howell III (67), Sean O’Hair (68) and Justin Rose (66). Ogilvy had not made a cut in his past four tournaments, dating to his season opener in the California desert. “The worst I’ve hit the ball was today,” he said. “You chip in, hole a couple of long putts … it’s amazing how different it is when you hole good putts.” This is a big weekend for the likes of Ogilvy and Howell, neither of whom is in the Masters. They have to win or move into the top 50 by the end of the month.

Dear Annie: I am 60 years old and have a cousin the same age. “Kevin’s” conversations are sexist, racist, immature and extremely self-centered.

wanted to use the hospitality of their home because my college apartment is a few hours away. I’ve worked hard for my degree, and I’m hurt by their lack of excitement. I want to share my happiness. I don’t need gifts. Would it be against etiquette to throw myself a party? — Puzzled Dear Puzzled: It is OK to give yourself a party, but please don’t mention your graduation until after your guests arrive. You don’t want to give the impression of, “I’m so fantastic and accomplished — bring presents.” Simply say you want to have a party. You can then tell them during the event that you are celebrating your degree. Another option is to get together with your classmates and have a group celebration, whereby you are essentially giving a graduation party for one another. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Sickened on the East Coast,” the mom whose 8th-grade child came home with a questionable summer reading list. As a teacher and a parent, I know that schools are as respectful as the people in charge. Reading specialists are highly trained Herald, Sentinel professionals who choose books wide that will help children understand that there- 3.5 Lima News are many challenging parts of life that are not pretty. But the responsibility of what children read in their free time still belongs to parents. Without banning books, “Sickened” can help her child choose material that builds character. Online, she can narrow her search for books that promote specific traits, such as gratitude, honesty, generosity and courage. “Sickened” also could do a web search on “character education,” where she will find numerous books written by authors who feel the same way she does. — A Parent First

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, MARCH 3, 2013 In coming months, be careful not to forfeit what you have in hand in order to pursue a hopeful “maybe.” Your best opportunities for gains, both financial and social, lie in finishing what you start. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Your image could be fragile, so it wouldn’t be surprising to find adversaries looking for chinks in your armor. Be extra careful when around those who might be envious. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- All a bad attitude will do is cause you to be self-defeating and greatly lessen your chances for success in any form. Don’t look for goblins behind every door. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It might prove wise to look gift horses in the mouth. Something tantalizing but worthless is likely to be on offer -- all it’s meant to do is lure you into giving up your hardearned money. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -To appease another, you might agree to do something that would serve that person’s best interest, not yours. Once you say yes, you’ll be held to your word. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Have some common sense when it comes to health issues. Don’t eat or drink too much of anything that your system doesn’t handle well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Unless you keep unruly whims in check, you’re apt to do something silly that you would greatly regret. Trade on your strengths, not on your weaknesses. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Unfortunately, when seeking advice, you are likely to go to persons who will tell you what you want to hear instead of the truth. It’s useless to select those who won’t level with you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Don’t use flattery on someone who truly doesn’t deserve it. Insincerity would lessen the worth of your words to others. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You had better put your blinders on if you find yourself browsing in stores that carry merchandise you can’t afford. Your sales resistance is likely to be extremely low. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- Allowing self-doubts to dominate your thinking could severely impede your progress. Either have more confidence in yourself or bluff your way through things. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Any problems you experience are likely to be of your own making. If you find yourself getting caught in a tight squeeze, it’ll probably be due to a sin of omission. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- When doing business with someone new, be on guard even if the other party has been recommended by a friend. It’s smart to take some time to judge this person’s character before jumping in with both feet. MONDAY, MARCH 4, 2013 There’s a strong possibility that you will be offered numerous opportunities in the coming months. If you don’t take time to evaluate each one, they could all elude you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Trying to be all things to all people won’t get you the kind of approval you’re seeking. If you want people to like you, just be yourself. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Help isn’t likely to be forthcoming, so don’t depend on others to do things for you. The more you take on yourself, the more you’ll get done. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Even if you’re usually good at handling money, this is not likely to be the case at present. You may be too tightfisted for your own good. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Try to avoid discussing topics that could cause a fight, especially with another whose views differ radically from yours. You won’t have much patience for argument. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Upon occasion, you can deprive yourself of some useful information, all because you don’t like the person who knows it. Don’t allow something petty to make your life harder than necessary. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Take with a grain of salt any proposal that offers you something for nothing. Somebody might end up ahead, but you can bet your bottom dollar it won’t be you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Unless you’re extremely careful, you could easily add fuel to an already smoldering domestic issue. The slightest thing you say could set off a conflagration. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- The one thing you can never afford to be is gullible about your commercial dealings. Before making any disclosures whatsoever, insist upon verification of what is promised. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Under no condition should you run your financial affairs predicated upon anticipated returns. The only cash you can count on is what you have in hand. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- There is nothing wrong with having a good opinion of yourself, but allow the praise for your achievements to come from the lips of others, not from yours. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- In conversations with friends or associates, they’re likely to learn more from you than you will from them. Listen hard, and try not to give away too much. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- New complications could arise if you poke your nose into places where you’re not invited. This will only alienate you from others.
