What’s in your water?
BY STEPHANIE GROVES sgroves@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — The City of Delphos and Ottoville and Spencerville villages have released their 2012 Drinking Water Consumer Confidence Reports detailing information regarding water sources used, any detected contaminants, compliance and educational information. The reports are due to customers by July 1st of each year. The Delphos Water Treatment Plant, a Class 3 facility, draws its water source, which is surface water, from the Little Auglaize River. Ottoville and Spencerville, both Class 1 facilities, draw water from wells. Each of the entities follow Environmental Protection Agency guidelines and examine their source waters for microbial, inorganic and organic chemical contaminants, as well as pesticides and herbicides, which are reported in milligrams per liter (mg/l) or micrograms per liter (µg/l). Under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), the EPA sets legal limits on the levels of certain contaminants in drinking water and reflects both the level that protects human health and the level that water systems can achieve using the best available technology. Besides prescribing the legal limits or maximum contaminant level (MCL), EPA rules set water-testing schedules and methods that water systems must follow and list acceptable techniques for treating contaminated water. Ohio EPA’s Northwest District Media Coordinator Dina Pierce explained the differences in soil structures in Northwest Ohio. “Testing schedules vary depending on geographies and geologies, which contain varying amounts of naturally-occurring elements,” Pierce reasoned. “There are certain regions in Ohio that have larger amounts of these elements. Just as with nitrates, there are higher elevations detected in the spring in areas containing agriculturally-rich farmlands.” All three municipalities have had varying levels of common inorganic contaminants, most of which are naturally occurring, in their distributed water source and include; barium, lead, copper and fluoride. Barium is naturally-occurring and is used in well drilling. People who drink water containing barium in excess of 2 mg/l for many years could experience an increase in their blood pressure. In comparison, Ottoville recorded the highest value of .014 in 2010 and Delphos tallied the lowest level with .0107 in 2012. Lead is a toxic metal that has been found in and around homes. At low levels, lead See WATER, page 10

Ohio teen uses candy machines to help fund college
By PHIL TREXLER Akron Beacon Journal AKRON — He’s saving for college 25 cents at a time. For Firestone High School senior David Krichbaum, that means handfuls of peanut M&Ms and shiny quarters, a ton of sales pitches and more than 200 rejections. This 17-year-old budding entrepreneur bought his first gum ball machine off Craigslist about 18 months ago “just for something to do.” He spruced up the vintage coin machine with fresh paint, tinkered with the gears a bit and plopped it down inside A Wok, a popular Chinese restaurant in Montrose. Since then, David has added six more vending machines in spots around Akron. But it wasn’t until he added a fullcolor “My College Fund” sign above the candy-filled globe that his busi-

— David Krichbaum, high school senior ness skyrocketed. “My sales doubled when I added that sign,” he said. His goal is to expand his market to 30 gum ball machine locations and generate $800 a month in profits. He already has been accepted into the University of Akron’s business college, where he estimates tuition and books will run him about $10,500 a year. The savvy businessman is repulsed by the mere thought of taking a

student loan and accruing debt and interest payments that saddle so many of his peers. Although his parents are able to help defray his college costs, David is intent on paying his own way through school, one twist of the knob at a time. “I know my parents could, but I think I’m going to try to do this on my own,” he said. “I just want to have some responsibility and at the same time get some experience in sales and business.” Theresa Krichbaum said her son always has demonstrated a creative, intuitive mind. Aside from the vending business, he also runs his own hot dog stand at special events around Highland Square. When he recently was denied a chance to sell his dogs at a local wrestling meet because of competitive reasons, he bought and opened his own cotton candy stand. “He’s always been a real thinker,”

his mother said. “He’s always coming up with different ideas to make money or invent things.” One of David’s first inventions came when he was 10. To quench his thirst to fly, he designed and built a hang glider. He made one successful jump off the backyard shed. But it’s his candy vending business that David hopes will carry him through college and eventually to his own restaurant or other small business. A Wok was the site of his first vending machine. Initially, he sold gum and made no mention of his college fund. Profits were a puny $5 a month. Late last year, he added the “My College Fund” sign, along with his picture, phone number and email address. It was an idea that just came to him. The signs have brought him See CANDY, page 2

HILLIARD (AP) — More information has come out in the slaying of a 44-year-old central Ohio woman, allegedly by her 22-year-old son. A prosecutor in Columbus told a judge Wednesday that Tyler Dunkle strangled his mother, Terri Menendez, in a fit of rage on Friday and hid her body in a closet at their Hilliard town house. Prosecutor Marla Farbacher said that Dunkle then stole his mother’s car and drove to his Chillicothe hometown. Then, Farbacher said, he returned and tried to kill himself with drugs and alcohol. Police found Menendez dead and Dunkle unconscious on Monday after Menendez’s co-workers were concerned that she didn’t show up for work. Dunkle appeared in court Wednesday on a murder charge, and his bond was set at $1 million. Attorney information wasn’t available.

By The Associated Press Today is Thursday, April 4, the 94th day of 2013. There are 271 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 4, 1968, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., 39, was shot to death as he stood on a balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn. (James Earl Ray later pleaded guilty to assassinating King, then spent the rest of his life claiming he’d been the victim of a setup.) On this date: In 1818, Congress decided the flag of the United States would consist of 13 red and white stripes and 20 stars, with a new star to be added for every new state of the Union. In 1841, President William Henry Harrison succumbed to pneumonia one month after his inaugural, becoming the first U.S. chief executive to die in office. In 1850, the city of Los Angeles was incorporated. In 1859, “Dixie” was performed publicly for the first time by Bryant’s Minstrels at Mechanics’ Hall in New York. In 1912, China proclaimed a republic in Tibet, a move fiercely opposed by Tibetans. In 1933, the Navy airship USS Akron crashed in severe weather off the New Jersey coast with the loss of 73 lives. In 1949, 12 nations, including the United States, signed the North Atlantic Treaty in Washington, D.C. In 1960, Elvis Presley recorded “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” in Nashville for RCA Victor. In 1973, the twin towers of New York’s World Trade Center were officially dedicated. (The towers were destroyed in the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001.) In 1975, more than 130 people, most of them children, were killed when a U.S. Air Force transport plane evacuating Vietnamese orphans crashlanded shortly after takeoff from Saigon. In 1983, the space shuttle Challenger roared into orbit on its maiden voyage. (It was destroyed in the disaster of January 1986.)

The Herald – 3

nologies down into the price range of conventional energy sources. Available off and on again in one form or another since 1992, the PTC has been key to helping many small utility-grade alternative energy providers get their businesses off the ground, which in turn has created hundreds of thousands of green jobs. According to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), the PTC has helped the U.S. wind industry grow by leaps and bounds. Thanks to the subsidy, the industry has attracted some $15 billion in investment during each of the past five years. Today some 500 wind farms operate across 44 states, providing as much as three percent of U.S. electricity needs. The increase in supply and demand has meant that the cost of wind has fallen by some 90 percent since 1980. But Congress has let the PTC expire without renewal four times previously, leaving high and dry the alternative energy producers who depend upon it to make ends meet. Some argue that the “here today, gone tomorrow” nature of the PTC has actually hurt small providers who have not been able to count on what amounts to a subsidy for helping push the country in the right direction energywise: “This ‘on-again/offagain’ status contributes to a boom-bust cycle of development that plagues the wind industry,” reports the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), a non-profit which puts independent science to work to solve the planet’s most pressing problems. “In the years following expiration, installations dropped between 73 and 93 percent, with corresponding job losses.” This time around Congress has once again only extended the PTC for one more year, leaving the future uncertain still for qualifying producers and reducing the security of any investments in U.S.-based wind, geothermal and biomass projects. “Shortterm extensions of the PTC are insufficient for sustaining the long-term growth of renewable energy,” reports UCS, adding that the planning and permitting process for new wind facilities can take two years or more to complete. “As a result, many renewable energy developers that depend on the PTC to improve a facility’s cost effectiveness may hesitate to start a new project due to the uncertainty that the credit will still be available to them when the project is completed.” The shame of it is that wind energy is one of America’s most promising alternatives. AWEA points out that wind farms can produce as much as 20 percent of the nation’s electricity needs—but only if Congress can commit longterm to supporting them via extending the PTC for more than a year.

E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: What is the “Production Tax Credit” and why is it so important to developing alternative renewable energy? — Sean Gallagher, Boston, MA Environmentalists and wind energy boosters breathed a sigh of relief this past January when Congress voted to reinstate the Production Tax Credit (PTC), a federal tax incentive for companies that generate renewable energy from wind, geothermal or “closed-loop” biomass (dedicated energy crops) sources. The credit, worth 2.2 cents per kilowatt-hour of energy produced, remains in effect for the first 10 years of a qualifying renewable energy facility’s operation.

Veterans official to be added to hall of fame


COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State University says a single donation of $13.5 million will pay for most of the development of the nation’s largest sports-medicine facility. The donation is from the Crane family, owner of several local companies, and university trustees are to vote on Friday to name the building the Jameson Crane Sports Medicine Institute. Jameson Crane, 87, is a 1947 OSU graduate who played football there. The Columbus Dispatch reports that the new building’s 140,000 square feet will allow Ohio State to add physicians, nutritionists, psychologists and others to teams that focus on specific sports or injuries.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The director of the state’s Department of Veterans Services will be among those inducted into a military hall of fame in Ohio next month. The Ohio Military Hall of Fame for Valor says Veterans Services Director Tom Moe will be inducted with 19 other veterans in a May 3 ceremony at the Statehouse in Columbus. Moe is a retired U.S. Air Force colonel and Vietnam War veteran who earned two Silver Stars, the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Bronze Star Medal for valor, among other decorations. Hall officials say the 2013 class includes veterans from various armed services who performed “heroically” in combat actions. The ceremony will bring the total number of inductees to 238, including four who received the Medal of Honor.

By AMANDA LEE MYERS The Associated Press CINCINNATI — A man accused of using a stun gun on a pit bull that fought with his dog and then fatally shooting it at a public park where there were children has been arrested, police said Wednesday. Robert Marx appeared in Hamilton County Justice Court Wednesday on charges of knowingly shooting a gun within city limits and criminal damaging. Convictions on both counts would carry a maximum of nine months in jail. The 74-year-old Marx, who was released on bond and placed on electronic monitoring, did not immediately return a message seeking comment on Wednesday. He did not have an attorney. Kaitlynn Hornsby and Silas Parker, the Cincinnati couple who owned the dog that was killed, a 1-year-old named Bruski, went to Marx’s court hearing and asked that he not be allowed out on bond because they’re afraid of him. The judge turned them down but ordered Marx, who also lives in Cincinnati, to stay away from the dog park and from Hornsby and Parker. Hornsby described Bruski as a lovable “big baby.” She

said Bruski was just being playful with Marx’s medium-sized, long-haired dog on Tuesday when the other dog bit him. Hornsby said that Bruski then bit into the other dog’s fur, locking his jaw. She and other witnesses told police that Marx then used a stun gun on Bruski and shot him with a 9mm gun within a matter of seconds. “He didn’t even give me a chance to break up the fight,” said Hornsby, 18. “I was bawling my eyes out, and I was telling him I was going to call the cops, and he laughed.

Immigration bill envisions new farm worker program
By ERICA WERNER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Sweeping immigration legislation taking shape in the Senate will aim to overhaul the nation’s agriculture worker program to create a steady supply of labor for farmers and growers, who rely more than any other industry on workers who have come to the country illegally. Farm workers already here would get a speedier path to legal status than other immigrants in the country illegally, and a likely new visa program would make it easier for foreign workers to come to the U.S. Policymakers aim to install such workers in place of the half or more of the nation’s farm labor workforce estimated to be in the country illegally. Negotiators have been working to finalize an agreement in time for the measure to be included in bipartisan legislation expected to be released next week, but disagreements on wages and numbers of visas are proving tough to solve. Labor groups are accusing growers of pushing to lower farmworkers’ wages, while growers dispute that and say they want to pay a fair wage. Meanwhile, labor is resisting growers’ attempts to increase the potential numbers of new workers who would come in, as growers argue their industry’s viability depends on a strong new labor supply. “It comes down to either we’re importing our labor or we’re importing our food, and if we don’t have access to a legal supply of labor we will start going offshore,” said Kristi Boswell, director of congressional relations for the American Farm Bureau Federation. The issue has gotten little public attention in an immigra-

Ethanol industry in ‘emerging phase’
The Associated Press Despite the recent struggles in the ethanol industry, Mark Borer, general manager, POET Biorefining in Leipsic, painted a rosy picture of the future of ethanol to those gathered March 21 for the monthly Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Breakfast Forum. While some consider the use of ethanol on the decline, Borer says the ethanol industry is still in its emerging phrase. Borer stressed the value of research and development in keeping ethanol a vital part of the America’s energy future. “We are constantly improving technology,” he said. Some of that research touches local farmers as he said as they have designed their own plants and have made vast improvements to allow quicker and smoother delivery of corn when farmers bring their stock. “All Things Ethanol” was his topic and Borer did cover a wide variety of subjects about POET and its role as a major player in renewable fuels. The forum was held at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation on Ohio 582 near Haskins. “It is easy to make a good case for ethanol,” he stated. “There is a lot of misinformation out there.” He explained that no matter your views on off-shore drilling, fracking and other sources of crude oil and gas, they are a “finite resource.” “The writing is on the wall. We’re still finding it but it takes a lot more resources to get it out,” Borer added. The economics of continued use of those fuels does not look advantageous. He said the obvious answers are to go back to renewable fuels such as solar, wind and going “back to the field.” While corn is the primary source of ethanol, other cellulosic sources are quickly emerging as an additional source. The plant manager said POET is already collecting stover and cobs from farmers and converting that into cellulosic ethanol. They are also focusing more on other biodiesel fuels. “There is a lot more than corn and this is an opportunity in our minds,” Borer said. “The technology is changing every day.” With the current higher grain prices, Borer conceded right now profits are thin and many plants have closed due to the glut of ethanol available. However he added, “The worldwide demand is rising. It’s no longer just about the U.S.” He expects a 25-percent growth in the use of ethanol by 2035. Making his case for ethanol, he explained that most people just think of gasoline as gasoline. However, he pointed out there are more than 100 ingredients in the gas you pump into your vehicle’s tanks. That right now includes roughly 10 percent ethanol. “Ethanol adds octane. In fact it is one of the cheapest forms of octane in fuel,” Borer said.

The Elida FFA Outdoor Power team placed 3rd out of 17 schools who participated in the FFA District 4 Outdoor Power contest held at Riverdale High School on Tuesday. The team consisted of, from left, Jared Blymyer, who placed 22nd out of 47 individuals; Patrick Brockert, who placed 7th; and Travis Watkins who placed 10th. The contest consisted of troubleshooting small engines, small engine tool and part identification, accessing computers to look up parts and a team event in how to properly service a lawn mower before the mowing season.

By James J. Hoorman Ag educator OSU-ExtensionPutnam County The following article was written by Ed Lentz, Hancock County Extension and Jim Hoorman. Farmers often get sales pitches when it comes to plant nutrition. They generally are knowledgeable about the main nutrients, but they are encouraged to try new products to improve crop yields. A basic understanding of soil fertility is important for high crop production. All crops require sixteen essential nutrients for proper growth and development, the specific amount of each nutrient depends upon the crop. The air or atmosphere provides carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. The rest must come from the soil and the amount available for a plant depends upon many factors such as the soil type, organic matter, pH, drainage, microbes, tempera-

ture, and rainfall. In the soil, nutrients are absorbed with water being pulled through the plant, diffusion exchange from a chemical gradient, and by roots intercepting the nutrient molecules. Some nutrients are required in large amounts compared to other nutrients, which are often collectively called primary or macronutrients. Primary nutrients include nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), or potassium (K). Nitrogen is used to form amino acids and proteins in the plant and most plants need 3-5.5 percent of their plant tissue biomass as N. Phosphorus is used in plants as the genetic backbone for DNA and for energy transfer. Plants generally need 0.2 to 0.5 percent of their plant tissue biomass as P. Potassium is used in the plant to provide plant turgor, to move sugars and starches, to increase photosynthetic production,

and to activate enzymes and proteins. Increasing plant K increases protein content or N content. Optimal K levels are 2.5 to 4.0 percent in the whole plant tissue of corn and 4 percent in soybeans. In most cases the soil cannot provide enough primary nutrients at a critical time to optimize crop production so farmers add N-P-K fertilizer to improve grain yields. Providing for these three elements provide 85 to 90 percent of the typical crop yield. Calcium, magnesium and sulfur are also needed in relatively large amounts but much less than N-P-K. These nutrients are collectively called secondary nutrients. Soils in northwestern Ohio formed from glacial activity and limestone bedrock high in calcium and magnesium, so our soils are naturally high in these nutrients. In addition, organic matter in our soils provides adequate levels of sulfur, which limits the need for fertilizers with secondary nutrients. However, sulfur may be lost from the soil much like nitrogen. Over the years most of sulfur came from impurities in other fertilizers and from atmospheric deposition (provided by the heavy industry and coal burning facilities to our West). These depositions have gradually decreased in recent years as improvements have been made in air quality. There is a concern that crops may not be able to obtain adequate levels of sulfur without supplementing with fertilizer. Generally, calcium in plant tissues is in the 0.25 to 0.8 percent range and magnesium in the 0.15 to 0.6 percent range for corn and soybeans with small grains requiring slightly higher levels. Calcium in plants is used in cation exchange and transport while magnesium is the critical core molecule for chlorophyll used in photosynthesis. Sulfur is tied to protein production and levels range from 0.2 to 0.8 for most crops depending upon the age of the plant. For most plant nutrients, the nutrient concentrations are higher in young plant tissue and during reproduction.

Crestview errors key to Blue Jays’ win
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com CONVOY — Sometimes, winning a baseball game comes down to taking what the opponent gives you. Wednesday night on a bright but chilly afternoon at Crestview Athletic Complex, that’s exactly what happened. St. John’s took advantage of six Knight errors to score six unearned runs and grab a 6-4 non-conference triumph. “We’re waiting for the bats to come around, so we have to find ways to score. We didn’t get a lot of hits but we took advantage of what they gave us,” first-year Blue Jay coach Ryan Warnecke said. “We have to be aggressive at the plate and on the bases; we have to play small-ball, manufacture runs and use what is given us well.” For Crestview mentor Jim Wharton, giving away runs was the key. “This is one of those games where you get what you deserve; we deserved to lose by committing all those errors,” he explained. “At the same time, we have had so little time on the actual field, so I’m hoping this will come around as we get playing time. We have some kids in new positions and we miss Bryce Richardson at short (recovering from broken nose); Isaiah (Simerman’s more natural position is third base.” The Knights (0-1) had battled back from a 3-0 deficit to take a 4-3 lead in the fourth. The Jays replied with a 3-spot in the top of the fifth to take the lead for good. Ben Wrasman led off against the second Crestview (0-1) hurler, Venice Roberts (0-1; 1 1/3 innings, 2 hits, 3 unearned runs, 1 base-onballs, 2 strikeouts) by getting aboard via an error and Curtis Geise walked. Both advanced as Craig Klausing bounced out. Wrasman scored as Troy Warnecke got aboard via another fielding error, putting runners on the corners and knotting the score at 4. Ryan Buescher was plunked to load the sacks, finishing the pitching of Roberts (for Simerman; 2 2/3 IPs, 1 hit). Drew Wagner (2-for-4, 2 runs batted in) launched a line single to right to plate Geise and Warnecke and put runners on the corners. However, walked and stole second. An out later, he moved up on a wild pitch. Thomas walked and a wild pitch scored Etzler for a 3-2 deficit. A passed ball pushed Thomas to third. Brock Rolsten walked and as he took off for second, Simerman’s infield hit wide of third scored Thomas. Helm’s bouncer forced Rolsten at third. Roberts walked to load the sacks and a wild pitch scored Simerman for a 4-3 edge. Jake Harmon walked to reload the bases but a called third strike on Owens ended the threat. “Curtis was not at his best but considering the few practices he’s had, he did all right. He’ll get better as he gets more innings but he did St. John’s senior Craig Klausing takes a high pitch for enough,” Coach Warnecke a ball as Crestview’s Nathan Owens gets out of his crouch added. “Our defense was outto catch it Wednesday night at Crestview Athletic Complex. standing, as it was Monday The Jays rallied with a 3-run fifth to grab a 6-4 non-league against Wapak.

Geise other areas of the game. “We put the ball in play The runs gave Geise (1-0; led off by getting on base on 4 IPs; 6 hits, 4 earned runs, 4 an error and swiped second. well and got a lot of baseBBS, 4 Ks) the win.

Polar Bears down Lady Jeffcats DELPHOS — Jefferson’s fast-pitch softball unit was supposed to open 2013 Tuesday at Van Wert but that game was postponed. The Lady Wildcats hosted Hardin Northern Wednesday night at Lady Wildcat Field but fell 12-4. The Lady Polar Bears (3-0) compiled 10 hits against Jefferson senior hurler Taylor Branham. The Lady Jeffcats only had four hits versus Beck McElree and couldn’t take advantage of six Bear errors. Jefferson hosts Minster for a noon doubleheader Saturday.

Lancer girls bash Cougars MIDDLE POINT - The Van Wert Lady Cougars softball team struck first, then never again, and Lincolnview got a grand slam from Devann Springer as the Lady Lancers won the battle of cross-county rivals 11-1 in five innings at Lancer Field Wednesday evening. The Lady Cougars only managed five hits on the night and committed three errors, which led to five unearned runs for the Lady Lancers. The Cougars (0-1) actually struck first in the top of the first. Senior center fielder Maggie Allmandinger led the game off with a single and scored on an RBI double off the bat of senior first baseman Brittany Bigham to take a 1-0 lead. The Lady Lancers (2-0) answered in a big way in the following frame. Senior centerfielder Jodie Doner led off with an infield hit and later scored on a safety squeeze bunt by Springer to tie the game at one. Sophomore shortstop Bayley Neate then picked up a 2-out single before junior third baseman Kelsey Mohr reached on Van Wert’s first error after striking out. Senior catcher Lauren Calvert then brought Neate home with an RBI single and junior first baseman Macey Ashbaugh plated Mohr and Clavert with an RBI double. After the dust settled, the Lady Lancers held a 4-1 lead after an inning of play. Junior pitcher Ashley McClure struck out the Van Wert side in the top of the second and Lincolnview added to its lead in the bottom of the frame. Sophomore rightfielder Julia Thatcher double to open the inning and Doner and senior second baseman Kaitlyn Brant singled to load the bases. Springer then launched a monster grand slam over the left-field fence to give Lincolnview an 8-1 lead. Ashbaugh later plated Springer with an RBI single to make the score 9-1 after two full innings. Van Wert’s final threat came in the third when the Lady Cougars loaded the bases but all three runners were stranded when McClure enduced a flyout to end the inning. Lincolnview’s final blow came in the home half of the fourth. Neate singled and Mohr reached on a fielding error before Ashbaugh struck again, this time with a 2-RBI single to make the score 11-1. Ashbaugh ended up 3-for-3 at the plate with a double and five RBIs. McClure shut to door on the Van Wert hitters in the visitor fifth to end the game. Along with Ashbaugh, Springer went 1-2 from the plate with a home run and five RBIs. McClure picked up the win on the mound. She went five innings, allowing one earned run while striking out seven and walking one. Allmandinger led the Lady Cougar attack at the plate. She went 2-3 with a run scored. Jessica Klausing took the loss. She went four innings, allowing 11 runs, six earned, while walking none and striking out three. See ROUNDUP, page 7

This is stuff you have to deal with all the time, especially in electronic media, such as TV. I am referring, of course, to how CBS handled the situation regarding Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware’s gruesome broken leg Sunday. They only aired two replays but at a reasonable distance and showed no blood or bone. I actually agree with them on this. Some disagreed because of the notion of “documenting history” — whatever that bilge meant — but how about a little dignity? The guy was hurt and in severe pain. The reaction of the players and coaches: even Duke Coach K was visibly upset; spoke volumes. That’s “documenting history”! I guess it comes down to the same old, same old: what gets publicity, the guy helping someone out or the train wreck? I did not watch the Baylor versus Louisville women’s regional semifinal Sunday but I have heard about it. I’ve read some forums about what “really” happened and I guess it depends on who’s side you are on. Some say — very vocally — it was the mugging of a lifetime by the Cardinals on 6-8 Brittney Griner; that U of L coach Jeff Walz should be ashamed for turning it into thug-ball or “street-ball” — which, by the way, he was quoted as telling his team to do so, such as drive and kick, and called his zone defense the “claw and one”; that the officials should be fired for their wholesale disregard for the rules; that head coach Kim Mulkey was well within bounds for her reactions on the court and her post-game remarks about the officials — she did offer that she didn’t care if she was fined — etc. Others respond — with equal ferociousness — to quit whining because it’s part of “the game”; Griner and

Good call on Ware injury
Baylor have been the beneficiary of officiating all four years; there were poor calls all game long for both sides; Mulkey should be ashamed for her tirade and near “strip-tease” but that it is “nothing new”; Walz got T’d up for doing the same thing Mulkey did just three minutes before, so who was favoring who; etc. I did see some replays of certain plays — not many — and if that was the overall trend of how the game was called (or not called) I agree with the latter; it was ridiculous. I can’t say one way or the other. I don’t mind coaches getting passionate about the game but perhaps they both stepped over the line. I do know this; in both the men’s and women’s NCAA tourneys, the officials have been under severe scrutiny by many a commentator and pundit — and coach — and found seriously lacking. They cannot win, can they? If they call it tight, they get inundated with “Let ’em play” and other such remarks; if they “Let ’em play,” it invariably gets out of control and the comments become “you’ve lost control of the game” or “someone’s going to get hurt.” I am not saying they don’t make mistakes — everyone does — but their “mistakes” — both real and perceived — are easy pickings these days, especially at the college and professional level, with the intense scrutiny of instant replay, YouTube and such. When a pundit is wrong, well, no one gets “hurt” or “hosed,” right? Here is what I foresee if things continue: with more and more referees retiring and such (for whatever reason) and seemingly less and less getting in, there will come a day — and it won’t be later — when we won’t have enough to have three in a game. Then what?

Jefferson run-rules HN DELPHOS — Jefferson’s baseball team continues to put up big offensive numbers, adding a 14-3 5-inning rout of Hardin Northern Wednesday night at home to their ledger. Senior Drew Kortokrax led the 13-hit Wildcat attack with a 3-for-3 night (a walk, 3 runs, 1 RBI), while junior Jordan Herron was 2-for-3 (3 RBIs, 2 runs) and senior Zach Kimmett 2-for-4 (2 RBIs, 2 runs). Junior Ross Thompson (1-1) got the win with three frames of 1 hit ball (2 walks, 3 strikeouts, 1 runs, 0 earned). Jefferson (3-1) hosts St. John’s today in a PHAALS game. SJ will be the home team. HN falls to 0-3.

Talk about stepping over the line: did you see the video about Rutgers’ men’s basketball coach Mike Rice and his practice “habits”? Throwing balls at players, calling them everything in the book, using “salty” language, being a general … I can’t write what I’m thinking but you get the picture. I don’t necessarily have a problem with a coach making contact with a player, like grabbing a jersey and showing a player where to go — within reason but that is qualified — but the other stuff seems way out of bounds to me. Throwing a ball at a player’s face or head when he isn’t expecting it? He was suspended for three games and fined $50,000 in December but with the general release of this video and one purporting to show the same “mixed metaphors” (remember “Star Trek IV” if you wonder where I got that from!) used in front of 10/12-year-old campers, well, that was determined to not be enough as he was fired Wednesday. One of the school officials claimed that there was no line in front of his office regarding this matter but the line wasn’t in front of his door but heading out the door: guys leaving the program or just quitting. I kind of wonder if this kind of activity was once condoned — or at least ignored — years ago. If it was then, it ain’t now, especially when you have cell phones and other items that can record this rotten behavior.

By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald btzweber@bright.net FT. JENNINGS Wednesday night, the Ottoville Big Green traveled down Route 189 to take on their neighbors, the Fort Jennings Musketeers, under the first-year leadership of head coach Eric Schwab. The Musketeers came into the game undefeated with a doubleheader sweep over Lima Senior and a close victory over the Elida Bulldogs. The Big Green wanted to bounce back after O-G blanked them 8-0 the evening before in Glandorf. The Big Green jumped out to an early lead and hung on to notch their first victory on the year, 4-2 over the Musketeers. The first inning started quickly for the Big Green as

senior Derek Schimmoeller singled up the middle to lead off the game. Fellow senior Jacob Turnwald was hit by a pitch. Junior Luke Schimmoeller bounced into a fielder’s choice, putting

The Associated Press ATLANTA — Carmelo Anthony scored 40 points — giving him 90 in two games — and Raymond Felton had three straight baskets in a key spurt, helping the New York Knicks beat the Atlanta Hawks 95-82 on Wednesday night for their 10th straight victory. Anthony, coming off a 50-point effort in a win over Miami on Tuesday, scored 24 points in the first half. He shot 17-of-27 from the field and was 5-for-6 from the free-throw line. Felton sparked a 12-2 run that turned a tie game into an 84-74 lead for the Knicks. He scored eight of his 12 points in the fourth quarter to help the Knicks move into sole possession of second place in the Eastern Conference. Atlanta missed an opportunity to move into a tie for fourth in the East and wasted a 25-point effort by Kyle Korver, who came up two points short of his season high.


Big Green

CLIPPERS 126, SUNS 101 LOS ANGELES — DeAndre Jordan had 20 points and 12 rebounds, Chris Paul added 14 points and 12 assists and Los Angeles beat Phoenix for its franchise-record 50th win. Willie Green and Caron Butler scored 15 points each to help the Clippers end a 3-game skid with their second-highest scoring total of the season. They improved to 50-26 overall, bettering the single-season record for wins set in 1974-75 when the team was in Buffalo. They’re 29-9 at home. Wesley Johnson scored 20 points and Jermaine O’Neal added 18 for the last-place Suns. SPURS 98, MAGIC 84 SAN ANTONIO — Danny Green scored 20 points and Gary Neal added 16 to pace depleted San Antonio to a victory over Orlando. A 14-2 run that included a pair of 3-pointers by Green midway through the fourth finally allowed the Spurs to take control. Before the run, San Antonio appeared sluggish and unable to pull away from the Magic, who trailed 74-70 with 10:37 remaining. Already without Manu Ginobili, the Spurs rested Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard and used Tim Duncan for only 14 minutes. Maurice Harkless scored 18 points for Orlando. Nuggets 113, Jazz 96 SALT LAKE CITY — Danilo Gallinari scored 21 points, including nine straight in the fourth quarter, and Denver ended Utah’s winning streak at five.

The Nets shot 83 percent (15-of-18) in the second quarter, when they outscored the Cavs 38-16 and opened a 30-point lead without much of a fight. Brooklyn’s 21 road wins are the most for the franchise, which moved to the New York City borough from New Jersey this season. MarShon Brooks made his first 10 shots and finished with a career-high 27 points for the Nets, who haven’t played at home since March 17 because the circus is at Barclays Center. Kyrie Irving scored 16 points for the Cavs, who have lost 10 straight. GRIZZLIES 94, TRAIL BLAZERS 76 PORTLAND, Ore. — Mike Conley scored 20 points and Memphis set a franchise record for wins in a season with a victory over Portland. With four straight wins, the Grizzlies improved to 51-24, surpassing their 50-win season in 200304. The Grizzlies have already clinched a spot in the playoffs

and are jockeying for home-court advantage in the first round. Former Blazer Zach Randolph, who played his first six seasons in Portland from 2001-07, added 17 points and eight rebounds for Memphis. Damian Lillard and J.J. Hickson led the Blazers with 17 points apiece. CELTICS 98, PISTONS 93 BOSTON — Jeff Green scored 34 points, including a 3-pointer with 45 seconds left to snap Boston’s 2-minute scoring drought, and the Celtics clinched a playoff berth by beating Detroit. Paul Pierce and Brandon Bass scored 17 points apiece for the Celtics. The victory, coupled with Philadelphia’s 88-83 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats, left Boston 8 1/2 games ahead of the 76ers with eight to play. Greg Monroe had 24 points and 17 rebounds and Rodney Stuckey scored 22 for the Pistons. WARRIORS 98, HORNETS 88 OAKLAND, Calif. — David Lee had 23 points and 16 rebounds, Stephen Curry added 20 points and nine assists and Golden State shook off a slow start to ease past New Orleans. Reserve Jarrett Jack finished with 19 points and eight assists against his former team to keep the Warriors in sixth place in the West. Golden State remains one game ahead of Houston, which won 112-102 at Sacramento. The Rockets own the tie-breaker after going 3-1 in the season series. Eric Gordon scored 21 points and Robin Lopez had 17 points and seven rebounds for the Hornets. New Orleans led by 11 points in the second quarter before the Warriors surged ahead for good. ROCKETS 112, KINGS 102 SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Chandler Parsons scored 29 points and James Harden added 21 to lead Houston to a win over Sacramento. Parsons and Harden, the team’s two leading scorers, returned to the lineup to help the Rockets win their third straight and eighth in 11 games. Omer Asik had 19 points and 10 rebounds. Jeremy Lin had 15 points and 10 assists for Houston, which sits in seventh place in the West. Tyreke Evans scored 22 points and Marcus Thornton had 21 for the Kings. TIMBERWOLVES 107, BUCKS 98 MILWAUKEE — Nikola Pekovic scored 27 points and Ricky Rubio added 18 points, 12 assists and eight steals to lead Minnesota past Milwaukee. Pekovic made 11-of-14 shots from the field and also had eight rebounds. Rubio connected on five of his six attempts from 3-point range for the Timberwolves, who went 8-of-13 from beyond the arc as a team and led most of the game. Ersan Ilyasova had 29 points and 12 rebounds, Monta Ellis scored 18 points and Mike Dunleavy added 15 for Milwaukee, which holds a 6-game lead on Philadelphia for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. BOBCATS 88, 76ERS 83 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Gerald Henderson scored 24 points, Kemba Walker had 17 points, 10 assists and five steals and Charlotte snapped Philadelphia’s 3-game winning streak. Henderson had a crucial steal late in the game and scored four points in the final minute to help the Bobcats end a 3-game skid. Josh McRoberts added 12 points and 16 rebounds for Charlotte. Damien Wilkins had 20 points and nine rebounds for the 76ers, who were dealt a big blow to their already thin playoff hopes. Philadelphia came in six games behind Milwaukee for the eighth and final playoff spot in the East with nine games left. RAPTORS 88, WIZARDS 78 TORONTO — Jonas Valanciunas scored a career-high 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Toronto over Washington. Valanciunas went 16-of-18 at the free-throw line and DeMar DeRozan had 25 points for Toronto, which snapped a two-game skid after being eliminated from the playoff chase. John Wall had 20 points for the short-handed Wizards (28-47), who announced before the game that rookie standout Bradley Beal will miss the remainder of the season with a right leg injury. The Raptors are second in the NBA in free-throw shooting percentage since the All-Star break at 81 percent. They hit 75 percent (27-of-36) against the Wizards.

deep double to center field, plating D. Schimmoeller for the first Big Green run of the game. The Musketeers squashed the remaining threat in the inning and trailed 1-0. After the Big Green retired the Musketeers in the bottom of the first, they came right back in the second to push their lead to 3-0 over the home team. After senior Cory Fischer grounded out, junior Alex Horstman and senior Craig Odenweller singled and then advanced to third and second on stolen bases. The Musketeers got D. Schimmoeller to pop out to second base but Turnwald lined a base hit to center field ,scoring both Horstman and Odenweller to push the lead to 3-0. The first four innings found Big Green starting pitcher D. Schimmoeller holding the Musketeers hitless; the only runner to get on base was junior Ryan Rau with a walk in the second inning. Heading into the fifth inning, the Big Green and head coach Tony Castronova faced a big dilemma; Schimmoeller was working on a no-hitter but he and his fellow seniors needed to leave the game because of their senior class trip to New York. Schimmoeller convinced his classmates and the coaching staff to stay one more inning. The fifth inning started off harmless for the Big Green as Schimmoeller struck out Rau to lead off. Sophomore Mark Metzger came to the plate and on the first pitch, sent a slow grounder


down the third-base line. Schimmoeller got to the ball but sailed his throw over the first baseman Zach Weber’s head and Metzger was off to the races, advancing all the way to third. Metzger scored when junior Josh Wittler grounded out to first base for a 3-1 deficit. With the no-hitter still in place, the seniors packed up and headed to see the bright lights of New York City and passed the torch to the underclassmen to finish off the game Horstman replaced Schimmoeller on the mound for the final two innings. He started the bottom of the six by hitting sophomore Connor Wallenhorst. Junior Dylan Van Loo sacrificed him to second and junior Alex Vetter delivered a clutch 2-out single to score Wallenhorst, cutting the Big Green lead to 3-2. Gone was the no-hitter for the Big Green. The Big Green got a big run in the top of the seventh inning when sophomore Joel Beining and freshman Jarrod Fanning both singled with one out. Horstman stepped to the plate, hoping to help his cause on the mound, and sent a hard ground ball to shortstop that looked like a sure double play but the throw to first pulled the first basemen off the bag, keeping the Big Green rally alive. With two outs and runners on the corners, sophomore Trent Miller came to bat but before he even saw his first pitch, Horstman broke from first base and forced the Musketeer pitcher, Rau, to make a decision. He did everything right in keeping the Big Green runner at third

The Big Green retired the Musketeers in the bottom of the seventh to notch their first win on the year. Castronova breathed a sigh of relief after the game: “Derek pitched a heck of a game tonight and Jacob and Bryan delivered some big hits for us. Even though it was a non-league game for us tonight, it’s still a big rivalry and nice to get our first win on the year. Seniors were all in a big hurry with the senior trip in the back of their minds but I give them a lot of credit, giving me five strong innings tonight. We put the young guys in and they stepped up made plays, and finished off the game for us.” . The Big Green (1-1) are right back in action 5 p.m. today as they host Ayersville. The Musketeers (3-1) will travel to Lincolnview.

Vacation with ‘best friend’ a fiasco


Thursday, April 4, 2013

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
THURSDAY, APRIL 4, 2013 Sometimes, we’re inclined to believe that it’s impossible to profit from anything we truly like, which is totally wrong. The year ahead is likely to change your thinking in this area. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Offering unsolicited advice is risky at best, so if you do so anyway, make sure the recipient knows that it’s just a suggestion. You don’t want to be held accountable for unpleasantness. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You’re likely to have rigid ideas about how things should be done, so any input from a friend or associate could be disruptive. Try to keep an open mind. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It isn’t always smart to try to do something the way another does, even if that person’s work is excellent. What’s viable for him or her might not be a good fit for you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Try to avoid a risky financial arrangement that you know little about and have little control over. Now is not the time to take chances. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- An old, unresolved disagreement between you and your special someone could rear its ugly head if you allow it. Letting outsiders into your business could make matters worse. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Labors of love are likely to be handled with remarkable skill, but, by the same token, you might not want to be identified with something that you dislike but are required to do. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Even though your earning potential is excellent, the way you manage your affairs may not be up to snuff. Try to bring your “A-game” to everything you take on. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -In order to complete what you start, you need to put limitations on how much you attempt to do. Work on one assignment at a time, and proceed slowly and cautiously. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Instead of trying to rectify another’s erroneous perception of you, you’re likely to let it go unchallenged and brood about the injustice being done to you. Why? CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Be on guard, because there is reason to believe that you could be the target of an expert manipulator. Speak up and don’t be a victim. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Be careful not to do anything that could offend someone important to you. You may think your behavior is funny, but the person who pays your salary is likely to be ticked off. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- As always, you will have a choice of how you view developments: positively or negatively. Don’t envision failure when it’s just as easy to see success.

It’s fine for you to remain in contact with Evan, but don’t plan any more vacation trips. If Evan should bring up the possibility of getting the families together again, simply say that he and his kids seemed uninterested in spending time with you before, so you think it’s best not to repeat the experience.

Obama to return 5 percent of salary to Treasury
BY JOSH LEDERMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — Sharing a bit of budget pain, President Barack Obama will return 5 percent of his salary to the Treasury in a show of solidarity with federal workers smarting from government-wide spending cuts. Obama’s decision grew out of a desire to share in the sacrifice that government employees are making, a White House official said Wednesday. Hundreds of thousands of workers could be forced to take unpaid leave — known as furloughs — if Congress does not reach an agreement soon to undo the cuts. The president is demonstrating that he will be paying a price, too, as the White House warns of dire economic consequences from the $85 billion in cuts that started to hit federal programs last month after Congress failed to stop them. In the weeks since, the administration has faced repeated questions about how the White House itself will be affected. The cancellation of White House tours in particular has drawn mixed reactions. A 5 percent cut from the president’s salary of $400,000 per year amounts to $20,000. Obama will return a full $20,000 to the Treasury even though only a few months remain in the fiscal year, which ends in September. He will cut his first check this month, said the White House official, who was not authorized to discuss the decision publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. The president and first lady Michelle Obama reported almost $790,000 in adjusted gross income in 2011, the most recent year for which their tax returns have been made public. That figure was down from the $1.7 million they brought in the year before and the $5.5 million they reported in 2009. About half of the family’s income in 2011 came from Obama’s salary, with the rest coming

US service firms grow more slowly, hiring weakens
BY CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER WASHINGTON (AP) — Two reports Wednesday showed that U.S. service companies grew more slowly in March and private employers pulled back on hiring. The declines suggest businesses may have grown more cautious last month after federal spending cuts took effect. The Institute for Supply Management said that its index of non-manufacturing activity fell to 54.4 last month. That’s down from 56 in February and the lowest in seven months. Any reading above 50 signals expansion. Slower hiring and a steep drop in new orders drove the index down. A gauge of hiring fell 3.9 points to 53.3, the lowest since November. That means companies kept hiring, just at a slower pace. The ISM report covers companies that employ roughly 90 percent of the work force. A separate report from payroll processor ADP also pointed to slightly weaker hiring in March. ADP said private employers added 158,000 jobs in March, down from 237,000 the previous month. Construction firms didn’t add any jobs after three months of solid gains. Economists were not overly concerned with the weaker reports. Several noted that ADP’s figures are less reliable than the government’s more comprehensive jobs report, which

from book sales. The Obamas reported more than $172,000 in charitable donations. Obama’s decision, first reported by The New York Times, won’t affect the other perquisites afforded the president, from a mansion staffed with servants to the limousines, helicopters and Boeing 747 jumbo jet at every U.S. president’s beck and call. The White House did not say whether Vice President Joe Biden would make a similar gesture. The 5 percent that Obama will hand back mirrors the 5 percent cut that domestic agencies took when the reductions went into effect.


comes out on Friday. Still, most say the pace of hiring has almost certainly dropped off from the previous four months, when employers added an average of 200,000 net jobs a month. And a few reduced their forecasts for March job growth after seeing the two reports. Jim O’Sullivan, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics, now expects just 160,000 net jobs, instead of 215,000. Jennifer Lee, an economist at BMO Capital Markets, said her group has lowered its forecast to 155,000, down from 220,000. Lee said businesses may have temporarily suspended hiring because they want to see the impact of $85 billion in government spending cuts, which began on March. 1. “It appears that businesses aren’t seeing the impact (of the spending cuts) just yet but are obviously concerned about the economy going forward… and are thus holding back on orders or hiring,” Lee said in a note to clients. Still, most economists say any slowdown is likely temporary. Most say growth accelerated in the January-March quarter to a 3 percent at an annual rate, buoyed by a resilient consumer and a steady rebound in housing. And even if growth slows in the April-June period to roughly 2 percent, as some predict, that that would still leave the economy expanding at a solid pace in the first half of the year.

increased sales as well as sales job offers from a local clothier and a potato chip vendor. With seven machines in business, all boasting his “College Fund” ad, David said he clears about $200 a month in profits. Zhong Zheng, who runs the family-owned A Wok restaurant, said he admires David’s business acumen and his family welcomed the chance to help the high school senior. “When I was in high school, all I thought was, ‘Oh, that girl’s cute. I’m going to ask for her number.’ I never thought about making money for college,” he said. “It’s just a smart idea he had. If every high school kid did that, their parents would be happy for four years.” “I don’t want the other kids to do it, though,” David piped in. His six other candy-machine locations include Georgio’s pizza and Baho’s convenience store at Highland Square, and Marco’s pizza in Wallhaven. Another machine is inside Empire Die Cast, where his father, also named David, works as a machinist. To help his business grow, David recently hired a professional location service compa-

ny that helped him land prime spots, including laundry rooms, inside the Fir Hill Towers apartment complex in Akron. He paid the company $40. To keep his sales fresh and profits high, David varies his product. He said mint gum is a sales dog, while peanut M&Ms are a huge seller. He also markets Buzz Bites, an energy gum with caffeine, at his Fir Hill and Empire Die Cast locations. It also helps that David studied engineering at Firestone and is gifted enough to repair the sometimes finicky coin machines that he buys off Internet sites such as Craigslist or eBay. “Most students dream about making money; David researches how to do it,” said Firestone teacher Dan Spak, who has been David’s Project Lead the Way pre-engineering instructor for four years. “Most students have little focus on what to spend the money on; David has specific plans and goals. I have no doubt that he will reach them.” It’s not always easy placing a gum ball machine inside a business. A desirable, high-traffic location is considered prime real estate, and many business owners are reluctant to allow David and his machines inside,

especially when they learn they would not receive a cut of the profits. So, he has come up with a sales pitch he employs when he puts his sights on a spot for one of his machines. First, he visits the business often as an unassuming customer before pitching the family-friendly benefits that a candy machine brings to a business. He has also aligned with the National Children’s Cancer Society, which shares a portion of his profit. “Then I just mention to them how I’m raising money for college, but I’m not looking for a donation, I’m just looking to place a candy machine here,” he said. David’s wish list of dream spots where he hopes to place future machines includes Akron Children’s Hospital, the downtown Metro bus terminal and any coin laundry. As with any business model, things in the candy market are not always sweet. David estimates prospective businesses have rejected him and his vending machines about 200 times. That’s exactly 200 more rejections than he’s had for his upcoming prom. “It’s no big deal; it’s just part of the game,” he says with a shrug.

may cause a range of health effects including behavioral problems and learning disabilities. Lead has an MCL of 15µg/l and Ottoville registered a high of .007 back in 2009 as compared to the lowest level of 0 in Spencerville in 2012. Copper is used in household plumbing materials. Short-term exposure to a level of copper in drinking water in excess of 1.3 mg/l may cause gastrointestinal distress and with long-term exposure, cause liver or kidney damage. Of the three entities, Spencerville had a higher level with .25 in 2012, Ottoville followed with .081 in 2006 and Delphos recorded the lowest level at .005 in 2011. Fluoride compounds form when fluorine combines with minerals in soil or rocks and is added to drinking water to promote dental health. Consumption of fluoride levels above the 4 mg/l MCL over a lifetime may lead to an increase of bone fractures. In 2012, Delphos tested a low 1.0, Ottoville followed with 1.46 in 2010 and Spencerville recorded a high reading of 1.94 in 2011. In 2012, an arsenic level of 4.6 mg/l, which is below the MCL of 10 mg/l, was detected in Ottoville’s water supply. Arsenic enters drinking water supplies from natural deposits or from agricultural and industrial practices. Industrial arsenic is mostly used as a wood preservative, but is also used in paints, dyes, metals, drugs, soaps, and semi-conductors. Agricultural applications, mining, and smelting also contribute to arsenic releases in the environment. Drinking water containing arsenic in excess of the MCL may cause skin damage, problems with circulatory systems and increase risks of getting cancer. Additionally, a Selenium level of 3.66 mg/l was detected in Ottoville’s water supply in 2010. The metal is found in natural deposits and used in electronic and photocopier components, glass, pigments, rubber, metal alloys, textiles, petroleum, medical therapeutic

agents and photographic emulsions. Drinking water containing in excess of the maximum contaminant level of .05 mg/l for many years could cause hair or fingernail loss, numbness in fingers or toes, or problems with circulation. Residual disinfectant total chlorine is the sum of free chlorine and combined chlorine residuals used in water to control microbes. The value is the concentrated amount of available chlorine remaining after a given contact time and detected values less than 4 mg/l are acceptable. All three facilities test for the total chlorine each month. Ottoville recorded the lowest level in 2009 with .50, followed by Spencerville with .80 in 2012 and Delphos tallied the highest value in 2012 with 1.4. Each facility monitors for the Volatile Organic Contaminants (VOC) total trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and haloacetic acids, which must meet Operational Evaluation Levels (OELs) determined by averaging specific quarterly calculations. “These are formed when organic matter react with chlorine,” Pierce explained. “The by-products are not like bacteria but can cause kidney and bladder issues.” Disinfection practices can be complicated when certain microbial pathogens, such as Cryptosporidium, which are protozoans that can cause gastrointestinal illness, are highly

resistant to traditional disinfection practices. People who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of 80 mg/l over many years could experience liver, kidney, or central nervous system problems and increased risk of cancer. Each facility tested for the by-product in 2012 and Delphos documented the highest level with 58, followed by Ottoville with 51 and Spencerville with a low of 47. “Smaller facilities sample for this (TTHMs) once a year, during the third quarter of the year July through September,” Pierce added. HAA5 components are a list of acids which, in general, have the ability to deactivate pathogens present in underground water and has been related to an increase in the risk of cancer. Overexposure to haloacetic acids can affect the kidney, liver and nervous system and harmful effects will likely worsen as a person is continuously exposed to increasing amounts of these by-products. Acceptable levels of haloacetic acids fall below 60 mg/l. Again, these were measured in 2012 by each of the facilities. Ottoville recorded the lowest level with 7, followed by Spencerville with 11 and Delphos with 25.
