‘Journey to the British Isles,’ Part 4
SEOUL, South Korea — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a stark warning to North Korea on Friday not to test-fire a mid-range missile, while tamping down anxiety caused by a new U.S. intelligence report suggesting significant progress in the communist regime’s nuclear weapons program. Kicking off four days of talks in an East Asia beset by increasing North Korean threats, Kerry told reporters in Seoul that Pyongyang and its enigmatic young leader would only increase their isolation if they launched the missile that American officials believe has a range of some 2,500 miles — or enough to reach the U.S. territory of Guam. “If Kim Jong Un decides to launch a missile, whether it’s across the Sea of Japan or some other direction, he will be choosing willfully to ignore the entire international community,” Kerry told reporters. “And it will be a provocation and unwanted act that will raise people’s temperatures.” If the trajectory of the test missile suggests that it could be a threat to either the U.S. or allies, the military would move to shoot it down from one of nine warships armed with sophisticated ballistic missile defense systems in the Pacific, including two that were moved closer to the Korean peninsula, U.S. officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss military plans. Kerry said the test would be a “huge mistake” for Kim. “It will further isolate his country and further isolate his people who are desperate for food and not missile launches,” he warned. “They are desperate for opportunity and not for a leader to flex his muscles.”

Flood-prone Blanchard spills over again
FINDLAY (AP) — Heavy rains swelled rivers across northern Ohio on Friday, flooding streets and sending a few residents of one flood-prone town scurrying yet again. Business owners in downtown Findlay where the Blanchard River cuts through moved their merchandise to higher ground before the river crested Friday. Rising water closed several streets and seeped into low-lying neighborhoods, but the flooding was not causing the same kind of damage as in recent years. The latest flooding comes as Findlay waits to find out whether the federal government will pay to help complete a study on potential solutions for controlling the frequent floods. Flood prevention has become a top priority since 2007 when flooding caused millions of dollars in damage in Findlay and Ottawa. Three members of Congress from Ohio sent a letter this week urging that the study receive funding so that it can be completed. Local officials are willing to pay for half of the $3 million needed to complete the study and want the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to cover the other half. A decision on the request is expected in the next few months. The Corps already has presented ideas that it says would not eliminate flooding but could decrease floodwater levels by three feet in Findlay during the worst flooding. Federal officials said in December that flood control for the river could cost up to $150 million or more.

The Pott family was not alone in wrestling with such circumstances. In Canada, the cousin of a young woman who committed suicide after an alleged assault and months of bullying issued an emotional appeal to people on Thursday not to use violence to avenge her death. Angella Parsons stood before a somber crowd of about 300 people in a Halifax park to reflect on the short life of 17-year-old Rehtaeh Parsons. The gathering came after Rehtaeh’s family said she hanged herself last week and was taken off life-support on Sunday. In Steubenville, Ohio, two high school football players were recently convicted in the rape of a drunken 16-year-old girl, an incident recorded on cellphones by students and gossiped about online. In California, Pott posted on Facebook that her life was ruined, “worst day ever,” then hanged herself, Allard said. For the next eight months, until Thursday’s arrests, her family struggled to figure out what happened to their soccer loving, artistic, horse crazy daughter, whose gentle smile, long dark hair and shining eyes belied a struggling soul. “The family has been trying to understand why their loving daughter would have taken her life at such a young age and to make sure that those responsible would be held accountable,” Allard said. “After an extensive investigation that we have conducted on behalf of the family, there is no doubt in our minds that the victim, then only 15 years old, was savagely assaulted by her fellow high school students while she lay on a bed completely unconscious,” he said.

IT WAS NEWS THEN
Attorney: Friends assaulted suicide victim
By MARTHA MENDOZA The Associated Press SARATOGA, Calif. (AP) -- A 15-year-old California girl committed suicide after she was sexually assaulted by three of her friends and a photo of the attack surfaced online, an attorney said Friday. Robert Allard, a lawyer for the family of Audrie Pott, said she saw an intimate photo being passed around online and pieced together from emails and text messages that her friends had victimized her while she slept. She hanged herself eight days after the September 2012 assault in the upscale bedroom community of Saratoga on the fringe of Silicon Valley. Allard did not provide additional details about how Audrie was assaulted, but he said she had fallen asleep after drinking at a sleepover. The Santa Clara County sheriff’s office arrested three 16-year-old boys on Thursday on suspicion of sexual battery in the case. Sheriff’s officials have not released the names of the suspects because of their ages, or details of the case. Family members of Pott also believe the attackers tried to destroy evidence. That claim was posted on a Facebook page for a foundation set up in the girl’s name. It did not provide further details on what type of evidence might have been targeted by the suspects. However, it asked any students with information to come forward, The family went into seclusion after releasing the statement. Allard said the Thursday arrests “reopened a wound.”
Finishing the study is critical and delaying it could push back congressional funding for the project by seven years or more, Tony Iriti, head of a private group working to speed up flood projects, told The Courier newspaper. There have been five major floods in the last six years in the city, which is about 40 miles south of Toledo. The worst damage came in August 2007 when flooding caused more than $100 million in damage. The flooding Friday was much less severe. A few streets were closed but there was no significant damage, city officials said. Some schools were delayed in the morning. The river crested Friday just above 14 feet before its level began to drop, according to the weather service.

Terror in Ohio The Flood of 1913
On the banks of yesteryear ...
Ottoville, March 1913 — Looking west at Third Street bridge.
Do you think we got enough rain this week? That was a drop in the bucket compared to the Flood of 1913 when Mother Nature dumped about 9 inches of water on a 2,500-square-mile area of Ohio. That amount of water was enough to fill a hole in the ground 25 miles in length, a mile in width and 25 feet in depth. Bellefontaine claimed the heaviest downpour with 11.16 inches. The 1913 Flood was the deadliest weather disaster in Ohio history, claiming 428 lives statewide. Dayton was the hardest hit because within less than one mile, four rivers converge inside the city limits. The National Cash Register Company of Dayton (NCR) sits on high ground outside the flood zone. John Henry Patterson, company president, turned his entire force of employees (7,100 persons) into a relief organization. Patterson bought up all available food and had it carted to the plant to feed the homeless. Straw was quickly strewn on factory floors to create dry sleeping places for more than 1,000 refugees at night. (One report said 3,000 homeless were housed in improvised quarters in the factory offices.) Every employee of the corporation capable of working on boats was put to work boat building. NCR built 167 boats in one day to help with the rescue of people in Dayton. The commissary department served 2,700 meals a day at its peak of refugees. Patterson himself manned the oars of one of the boats. His two grown children, Frederick and Miss Dorothy, were part of the rescue teams. Mr. Patterson is said to have made a promise to his dying wife, Katherine, that he would give special care to the comfort and welfare of his women and girl employees. Many fires broke out in the city. There were stories of people who took refuge on the second floor of their homes, only to have the building next door catch fire. They placed ladders from their window to a neighbor’s window and then crawled on the ladder to the other house. (City houses were sometimes very close together). They had to do this more than once to escape the flames as they spread. Governor Cox asked the Associated Press to somehow get in touch with the
gas companies to shut off the supply to Dayton. The National Guard (including the Van Wert group) was called in to help in any way possible. At least 12 of these young men lost their lives in the line of duty. Many tall, large buildings were turned into shelters for at least 7,000 people. These buildings managed to withstand the flood. The Miami River peaked
ties. In Delphos, the canal and the Jennings Creek overflowed. There was one expanse of water from a short distance south of Cherry Street to far beyond the limits of the city. Flat Fork Creek went on a rampage all the way through Delphos. Much damage was done by the water backing into the basements and many homes in the San

A 115-year-old log cabin, the first house built in Dayton, withstood the flood on the banks of the Miami, right in the path of the flood. Approximately 350 people were killed in the Dayton area — 255 from drowning and 106 from other complications, with approximately 20,000 homes destroyed and 65,000 people displaced; 428 were killed statewide and around 40,000 homes were destroyed. During clean-up operations, many sight-seers managed to get into the city. Some well-dressed sightseeing strangers who got into Dayton were ordered at the point of a bayonet by the soldier boys to take a spade and help bury dead animals. It is estimated that approximately 1,500 horses perished in the flood. Now back to Delphos and our neighboring communiFelice Addition were completely surrounded by water. The water reached the tops of all the arch bridges, save the one at Fourth Street. When the Flat Fork Creek reached its high stage Monday morning, water backed into an overflow leading from the pump well at the Water Works Station to create much of the muddy water that found its way into the pump well and from there was pumped into the stand pipe, causing the city water to have a muddy appearance. When the trouble was discovered, the area was dug up and the flow shut off. The Delphos Gas Plant was put out of commission Tuesday when water entered the inlet and outlet valves. The plant was back in operation on Wednesday. The Clover Leaf Tracks (later part of N & W Railroad) in Delphos and Ohio City and other points were in bad condition.

In the early 1900s, a woman who desired curls either had to heat curling irons over a flame or sleep with rags and pins in her hair. But a new machine promised to change all that. Enter the permanent wave machine, which used a combination of chemicals and clamps heated by electricity. The machine itself was a scary-looking contraption and for good reason. The process was very tedious, taking up a good part of the day. After the chemically saturated hair was tightly wound on spiral rods, the rods were attached to the machine and it was plugged in. It became so hot one could see steam coming off the hair. In fact, Jo Belt, formerly of Delphos, had part of the outer edge of her ear burned off while getting a permanent A permanent wave mathis way. chine used on a mannequin In addition, sometimes the The control panel for the in the window at the Delphos results of the drastic chemipermanent wave machine.

The end product was often frizz but women wanted curls and so kept getting permanents. Much of this was the influence of Hollywood and its glamor. The “silent moving picture” was introduced in the 1910s and by the end of the 1920s, the talking picture had been perfected. Going to the theater to watch a movie became a very popular form of entertainment and women wanted to look like the beautiful movie stars they saw. The rise in popularity for all sorts of new and complicated beauty rituals led to a huge growth in beauty salons. In 1920, beauty parlors numbered around 5,000 in the U.S. but by 1930, the number had grown to 40,000. In Delphos, there were none listed in the 1931 City Directory but by 1941, there were eight: Beau’s at 310 Suthoff, Evan’s at 103 E. Second, Mabel’s at 813 E.

“The excursion is the same when you go looking for your sorrow as when you go looking for your joy.” — Eudora Welty, American author (1909-2001)
Hold the printer ink, please
In our Good Times publication, there is a section that highlights the prices of the everyday items we all use, like eggs, milk, bread, etc., for a certain year. In 1958, for example, a house cost $30,000; the average income was $4,650; milk was $1.01 a gallon; and gas was 24 cents a gallon. Yes, 24 cents a gallon. You can’t even get a gum ball for that now. We watch in amazement as the price jumps 30 and even more cents from the time we get to work until lunch. Then, sometimes, it even changes again that same day. Someone needs to tell me what in the world could happen to cause that. Someone needs to tell me how the big gas companies can stand in front of the American people and announce their profits and not feel guilty because that money is made off the backs of the American people. How much is enough? You hear where companies lose millions in a quarter and you think, wow, that’s a lot. But what you don’t realize is that is not really how much they lost. That’s how much less they made than the quarter before. Wah! Since there seems no help in sight and those fat cats lining their pockets with my money, I’m going to do the only thing I know how to do. I’m going to make it funny. Because if I don’t, I might cry. Here is an e-mail from my mom. Who else? It is someone who obviously has way too much time on their hands and access to a calculator. I don’t know where it originated. By the time you get to the end, you won’t either. Gas prices will still be sky high and someone else will be making money every time you fill up. So buck up ’lil campers and check into that moped, scooter, bicycle, motorcycle or what-
On the Other hand
ever you have kicked around driving to combat the high price of gas. Think a gallon of gas is expensive? Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 — $10.32 per gallon Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 — $9.52 per gallon Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 — $10.17 per gallon Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25 — $10 per gallon Brake fluid 12 oz $3.15 — $33.60 per gallon Vick’s Nyquil 6 oz $8.35 — $178.13 per gallon Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85 — $123.20 per gallon Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 — $25.42 per gallon Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 — $84.48 per gallon And — this is the REAL KICKER ... Evian water 9 oz $1.49 — $21.19 per gallon! $21.19 for WATER and the buyers don’t even know the source. (Evian spelled backwards is Naive.) Ever wonder why printers are so cheap? So they have you hooked for the ink. Someone calculated the cost of the ink at — you won’t believe it but it is true — $5,200 a gal. So the next time you’re at the pump, be glad your car doesn’t run on water, Scope, or Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or, God forbid, printer ink!
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
DEAR EDITOR: Are you aware Iberdrola Renewables, a division of Iberdrola SA of Spain, is in Delphos commissioning landowners to give up their land to build 150 wind turbines? These 550-foot-tall turbines will connect to the already built monstrosities in Van Wert. YOUR tax dollars are subsidizing the construction of these turbines. After learning from a real estate agent that the property value of homes located in the wind farms have decreased, it angers and frustrates me to see people being taken advantage of. It’s up to you to educate yourself about what is being forced upon us. Just because you did not sign a lease or easement does not mean you won’t be directly impacted. Please educate yourself. Go to: noauglaizewind. wordpress.com or windworrier.com or type in “you tube turbine flicker” to see actual footage of shadow flicker and turbine noise. Please voice your opposing opinion and help prevent the rest of the landowners from signing over their valuable property. If you would like a “No Wind Turbine” sign, please email firstname.lastname@example.org Mary Kay Klausing, Delphos DEAR EDITOR, I am writing in reference to the proposed Dog Creek wind farm that will be located west of Delphos in Van Wert County. The developer, Iberdrola Renewables is headquartered in Bilbao, Spain. These are the same people that developed the Blue Creek farm further west in Van Wert County. As I have researched wind farms, I have become increasingly more concerned. There are so many negative issues with these wind turbines. When I first heard of the proposed Dog Creek farm it was almost a year after the landowners were being approached. I was amazed that we were never told of this. I thought if this is such a good thing, why are people not talking about it? Usually, when good things happen, people are celebrating the news. So if this wind farm is such a good thing for this community why does the developer want so desperately to keep it quiet? This was the first red flag for me. The success or failure of the Dog Creek wind farm falls squarely on the shoulders of the landowners west of Delphos. Many have already signed leases to allow for the turbines, many have not. All of these land owners are hard working farmers whose families have been good stewards of this land for generations. They have worked hard to preserve a way of life to be proud of. They have helped to build a strong community that we can all be proud of. Now, at this time, this way of life is being threatened. It is our turn to stand up for what is right and not allow this to happen. We need to protect this land for our children and grandchildren. These wind turbines have the potential to destroy our way of life and cause many problems in our community. It has happened all across this country and will happen here as well, if the Dog Creek wind farm becomes a reality. In closing, I would like to say that nothing in life is truly free, everything has a price. These turbines may seem like a good idea to some, but there will be a price, and it will be paid by all of us, the landowners, our children, our neighbors and the citizens of our city, our state and our country. Molly Buettner Delphos DEAR EDITOR: To the Delphos Community: The Delphos Public Library has been a part of the Delphos community since 1912. While the library has experienced many changes over the years, one thing has never changed – the overwhelming support that the Delphos community has provided to its library. The Delphos Public Library serves its community as a lifelong learning center. In 2012, the library was accessed by more than 10,000 patrons and circulated more than 195,800 items. That is an impressive number for a library our size. In 2013, your Delphos Public Library became a member of the SEO (Serving Every Ohioan) consortium, which provides patrons access to more than 8 million items and the up-to-date ability to download e-books to personal reading devices free of charge. Passage of this Renewal Levy will ensure that exciting and educational programs continue to be available for children of all ages; that patrons will continue to have access to books, magazines, music, videos, genealogy programs, computers and online programs; and that the Delphos Public Library will continue to have the necessary funds to provide quality library services to the Delphos community in the future. This is not a new tax – it is a renewal of the current 0.6 mil levy which provides 13 percent of the library’s annual budget. Please vote “yes” on May 7 for the Delphos Library 0.6 mil Levy Renewal. The Delphos Public Library needs your support. Thank you. Delphos Public Library Board of Trustees

mum wage already does. The bill would also gradually raise the minimum wage for tipped workers for the first time in 20 years. This tipped minimum wage currently stands at just $2.13 an hour. Our bill would increase it to 70 percent of the regular minimum wage. More than 30 million American workers would get a raise with our bill. The vast majority – 88 percent – are adult workers and more than half are women. Nearly a quarter of all American children – totaling 18 million – have parents who would get a raise. But it’s not just about the families who will be directly affected. Increasing the minimum wage means more money pumped into local economies. In fact, a 2013 Economic Policy Institute report found that increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, would increase GDP by nearly $33 billion over the course of three years as workers spend their raises in local businesses and in their communities. This economic activity could generate 140,000 new jobs over the course of three years. Ensuring a fair wage is good for middle-class families and good for our economy. Raising the minimum wage for Ohio workers is long overdue.

Local track teams survive the cold of Bearcat Relays
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ delphosherald.com SPENCERVILLE — Track and field coaches in particular have been frustrated with the way the late winter and early spring weather has hindered their teams’ preparations for 2013. That was so true in Friday night’s 37th annual Spencerville Bearcat Relays held at Charles Moeller Track at Spencerville High School. The cold and windy conditions left many a coach thankful that they got through this 8-team invitational without injury and still had some solid results. Spencerville’s boys took second behind Columbus Grove, while St. John’s was fifth and Jefferson sixth. The Lady Bearcats were third behind Marion Local and the Lady Bulldogs; the Lady Blue Jays were fifth and the Lady Wildcats tied for seventh. As host of the event, Spencerville coach Bruce McConnell had a lot more than he normally would like. “This was a long day for us: we had a storm come in here Wednesday and did some damage to the pole vault area,” he began. “We saw a lot of water on the track when I came in here at 7 this morning and we worked hard to get it ready for tonight, especially since this was our first home meet. “We’ve had several meets already where it was cold like this, so we haven’t had a lot of good weather to either compete in or practice in. Our polevaulters haven’t really jumped competitively in two weeks. Still, we had a lot of personal records set today, so we’re getting some things done despite what the weather has handed us.” St. John’s boys mentor Dr. Jay DeWitt was relieved. “I like to say it was a great day to race but that wasn’t so; we haven’t had many this spring. I have been coaching for 10 years and I don’t think it’s ever been this tough with the weather,” he explained. “We viewed this as a practice-plus: we were working on things we haven’t really had the chance to work on extensively, like handoffs and such, but trying to be reasonably competitive. We also viewed this as a conditioning as well because that has suffered. “My goal is always to be preparing for the tournaments in May and June, so what we do now is focused on that, while hoping we stay healthy. You want to compete but really, when it’s like this, you hold your breath, cross your fingers, hope that no one gets hurt and you remain healthy.” That was definitely on the mound of Lady Blue Jay coach Dave Desenberg. “We kept our top two pointgetters from last season and so far this season, Madison Burgei and Madison Kreeger, out today; they are nursing foot injuries and we just decided to keep them out,” he said. “We also had several girls at senior class trip, so we were competing with 15 girls. When you think about it, we did very well with all that. “We didn’t want to stress them too much, so we didn’t run in three relays. The girls we had did well; we had a number of personal records and I think we got out of here with no more injuries. We survived: we competed well and got out of here healthy, which is the goal at this point of the season.” Jefferson boys coach Bub Lindeman was thankful to just be competing. “Any time you get some good
The Associated Press PIRATES 6, REDS 5 PITTSBURGH — Andrew McCutchen hit a tie-breaking homer in the seventh inning and drove in three runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Cincinnati Reds 6-5 on Friday night. McCutchen’s leadoff shot to left field off J.J. Hoover (0-3), his second homer of the season, snapped a 5-all tie. Cincinnati had just tied the score in the top of the seventh on Brandon Phillips’ second home run of the game, a 2-run drive to center off Tony Watson (1-0). The first four batters in Pittsburgh’s lineup — Starling Marte, Neil Walker, McCutchen and Garrett Jones — had two hits each as the Pirates totaled 12. They entered the game with a .153 batting average, worst in the major leagues, and had scored only 21 runs in their first nine games. Walker and McCutchen hit consecutive two-run singles in the second to give Pittsburgh a 5-1 lead. Marte extended his streak of multi-hit games to six. He is 12-for-24 during that stretch. The leadoff batter also has had a hit in the first inning in each of those six games. The Pirates had not scored more than four runs in any of their previous 13 games against the NL Central rival Reds. Phillips hit a leadoff homer
OHIO MLB CAPSULES
in the second inning off Pirates starter A.J. Burnett. The cleanuphitting second baseman has four home runs this season and 10 career two-homer games. However, Phillips struck out to end the game with runners on first and second as Jason Grilli pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his fourth save in as many opportunities. Burnett went six innings and allowed three runs on six hits. He struck out eight and walked three. Cincinnati starter Mike Leake is now winless in eight career starts at PNC Park, more than any visiting pitcher in the history of the 12-year-old ballpark. He gave up five runs and 10 hits in six innings with two walks and two strikeouts. Pittsburgh catcher Russell Martin, who entered with a .043 batting average, singled home a run in the first inning to open the scoring. After Walker and McCutchen gave the Pirates a four-run lead in the second, Cincinnati cut the deficit to 5-3 as Devin Mesoraco drove in a run with a groundout in the fourth and then hit an RBI double in the sixth. INDIANS 1, WHITE SOX 0 CLEVELAND — On a pitching staff that’s been battered and bruised, Justin Masterson is performing like an ace. Cleveland’s right-hander threw nine shutout innings and Nick Swisher’s 2-out RBI single in the ninth gave the Indians a 1-0
competition, you’ll take it, even with weather a factor. Track and field is such that you will potentially run in any and all kinds of weather.,” he began. “I thought my seniors really did a nice job of making sure we were mentally ready to go, forgetting about the weather; they just came in with the approach to take care of business and I felt we did. They have the experience to know not to worry about the weather; just be physically and mentally ready to go, get warmed up and stay there as best you can. “In particular, winning the 4x1, the 4x2 and the sprint medley was a testament to how hard these kids are working. Cody Biglow, Tyler Mox, Chris Truesdale, Nick Gallmeier and Jordan McCann in particular ran very well. We felt coming into the season that our sprints were going to be our best asset and they have been so. We have along way to go but this is definitely something we can build on. Our approach is this is one notch and one meet and we’ll focus on each of them as they come.” Lady Wildcat coach Ryan Carder was also pleased with his young squad’s approach. “We’ve got some girls in different events and they did well. I liked their attitude; they work hard and there was no complaining tonight,” he said. “We had a great approach coming in. “The thing you worry about is not only warming up but staying warmed up. We took extra time to make sure we had stretched properly and stayed that way. St. John’s is in the Elida trimeet 4:30 p.m. Monday, while Jefferson returns to the track Friday at the Columbus Grove Bulldog Invitational. Spencerville is in the Minster Memorial April 20.

win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday. Masterson, who has three of Cleveland’s four wins, extended his consecutive scoreless innings streak to a career-high 19. He hasn’t allowed a run since the third inning on opening day against Toronto and pitched seven scoreless in his second start against Tampa Bay. Swisher hit the first pitch from reliever Jesse Crain to score Michael Bourn with the game’s only run. Masterson (3-0) retired the side in order in the ninth and was given a standing ovation by the crowd of 11,864. That momentum carried into the bottom of the inning when Bourn started the rally with a 1-out double off Crain (0-1). Bourn’s blooper landed near the left field line and he beat the throw to second base. After Asdrubal Cabrera’s groundout moved Bourn to third, Crain fell behind Jason Kipnis in the count 3-0 before an intentional walk was issued. Swisher, one of the Indians’ key offseason additions, hit the first pitch into right field and was mobbed by his teammates as the Indians won for the first time in three home games despite managing only three hits. Masterson and Jose Quintana engaged in a pitchers’ duel. Masterson allowed five hits and struck out seven. Quintana held the Indians to one hit in seven innings with seven strikeouts. Masterson was assisted by his defense. Alex Rios hit a ball off the wall with two outs in the first but was thrown out trying for a double by leftfielder Michael Brantley. Alexei Ramirez singled to lead off the sixth but was thrown out attempting to steal second by catcher Yan Gomes. Paul Konerko doubled with two outs in the seventh — becoming Chicago’s first batter to reach second — but Dayan Viciedo struck out. Conor Gillaspie started the eighth with a double over the head of Brantley, who nearly made a running catch in front of the wall. Ramirez fouled off a bunt attempt that was caught by Gomes behind home plate. After a groundout moved Gillaspie to third, Masterson struck out Alejandro De Aza to end the inning. Quintana allowed one hit — Brantley’s 2-out double in the second. The Indians’ only other base-runner against the left-hander came when Swisher was hit by a pitch with two outs in the fourth. Quintana, who allowed six runs in four innings in his first start against Seattle, struck out seven. Matt Thornton pitched a scoreless eighth. Cleveland activated designated hitter Jason Giambi (strained lower back) from the 15-day DL before the game.

Fort Worth, Texas is next test for NASCAR’s new Sprint Cup car
The Associated Press FORT WORTH, Texas — One of the key moments in the development of NASCAR’s new Sprint Cup car came in a multi-car test at Texas last fall. Now six races into the first season with the new model cars, they get to race on that 1 1/2-mile high-banked track tonight. “Texas really was one of the pivotal moments of the development of this car and the package that we handed off to the teams to race this year,” Robin Pemberton, NASCAR vice president of competition, told reporters. “I think we’re off to a pretty good start for the year for the package that we have. It seems to me that the teams are pretty happy with what they have been handed off to start with.” The new models look more like their passenger car counterparts. And each of the three manufacturers has a car in the top four of the Sprint Cup standings. Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. are first and third, respectively, in Chevrolets. Defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski is second in a Ford; Kyle Busch fourth in a Toyota. “Every weekend is a big weekend right now for our sport and this new car. We have been very fortunate over the last two or three races to have great runs; not just as the 2 team but as the sport,” Keselowski said. “I think we have seen compelling racing and great battles. I think the car is doing as well as you can expect it to coming out of the gate.” There were two testing sessions Thursday, providing more than three extra hours on the Texas track. Greg Biffle, the defending race winner, turned the fastest lap in those sessions at 192.864 mph. That was faster than the qualifying speed for both Cup races at Texas last year — Martin Truex in the spring race (190.369 mph) and Jimmie J o h n s o n (191.076 mph) last fall — but well off Brian Vickers’ qualifying mark of 196.235 mph set for the 2006 fall race. “Yeah, the last time I drove this car was last year here and it has come so far since then,” said Biffle, who was part of that October test in Texas. “It was definitely a handful then to drive and now the first few laps on the race track it has a lot of grip and is really fun to drive. You know, it is the same old Texas. We are sliding and a little loose and then tight and it is going to be a fun race.” Truex was on the top 10 on the speed chart for both test sessions. He said the new car “is definitely different here” and that his team was still learning a lot about the car, especially on bigger 1 1/2-mile tracks like Texas. When asked if there were any tweaks coming to the car packages, Pemberton replied he didn’t anticipate any since the series feels it is in a good spot. The new car was tested for about two years before being debuted this season. Pemberton added NASCAR feels as if the playing field is fairly level and that everyone has an equal opportunity to compete. “One of the things we learned over the years, if you keep moving the target, it’s harder for (teams) to keep chasing that,” Pemberton added. “We don’t feel teams are done developing their own packages for this car.” Keselowski anticipates that things could only get better. “I think when you look at the car that we are at 80 or 90-percent development on it from a sport side, maybe not even that,” he added. “With a few little tweaks the racing could be even better every week. If we could do that we would sure hit a home run for the sport.”

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report CENTRAL OHIO Buckeye Lake (Fairfield/Licking/Perry counties) - Hybrid-striped bass are active along the north shore between Seller’s Point and Watkins Island in 4-8 feet of water; fish chicken livers on the bottom or troll spinners, crankbaits or large plastic baits. Largemouth bass are being caught in the channels on plastic baits. Crappie and bluegill are active in shallow water and the channels; use small jigs or minnows to catch crappie and small jigs tipped with a mealworm for bluegill. Saugeye are active lake-wide; use jigs tipped with a minnow or crankbaits fished near the bottom. Hoover Reservoir (Delaware/Franklin counties) - Lake water temperatures last week were low - 40 degrees Fahrenheit; as temperatures climb, crappie will move from deep water into shallower water to spawn. Start fishing creek channels with woody cover using jigs and minnows moving to shallower water as temperatures rise. Saugeye are located by the dam in good numbers right now; try minnow-imitating baits. Channel catfish are eating dead and dying gizzard shad; use cut baits for best results. There is a 10-HP limit here. NORTHWEST OHIO Sandusky River (Sandusky County) - The river level is low right now and fishing has been fair, despite medium to high fishing pressure. Most anglers use a floating jig-head fished on an 18- to 24-inch leader with a 1/4- to 1/2-oz. weight depending on the water current; anglers seem to have the best success tipping the jig head with a twister tail of white or chartreuse color. The best area to try is around the Miles Newton Bridge. The daily bag limit is 4; do NOT keep any walleye shorter than 15 inches, so please bring a ruler. Maumee River (Lucas County) - The river level is low and walleye fishing is fair right now. Fishing pressure was medium to high the last week; the fish that anglers are catching have been large. Most anglers use a floating jig-head fished on an 18-24” leader with a 1/4- to 1/2-oz. weight depending on the current; anglers seem to have the best success tipping the jig-head with a twister tail of white or chartreuse color. The best area to try is between Orleans Park and Ft. Meigs. The daily bag limit is 4; do NOT keep any walleye shorter than 15 inches, so please bring a ruler. NORTHEAST OHIO Rocky River (Cuyahoga County) - Steelhead fishing has been pretty consistent here; the steelhead are still evenly distributed throughout. Anglers are catching these silver bullets on a variety of baits, such as spawn sacs, maggots, flies, spinners and spoons, but casting minnows seems to be the hot bait right now. For more information on steelhead fishing, visit our website www.wildohio.com. Mahoning River (Stark County) - The spring crappie action picks up at another location in Northeast Ohio. The Greenbower Street Bridge that crosses this river near Deer Creek Reservoir has been added to that list. Anglers are filling their buckets and ice chests with nice slabs of black and white crappies, reeling them in on everything from a minnow under a bobber to crappie tubes and jigs with twister tails. SOUTHEAST OHIO Hocking River (Athens County) - Crappie are a popular with anglers in this river this time of year; try fishing heavy cover with small jigs and minnows. Anglers may also have limited success for smallmouth bass - as temperatures increase, try casting rubber worms, crankbaits and spinners over structure with current, weed beds and deep holes. As temperatures continue to warm, flathead catfish fishing may pick up; these prefer live bait such as gizzard shad, so try eight inches or larger. Seneca Lake (Noble/Guernsey counties) Spring’s rising temperatures mean increased opportunity for crappie fishing as fish make their way to shallow waters to spawn; try small minnows fished under a small bobber moving from one brushy spot to the next along the shoreline.
FISH OHIO WEEKLY REPORT
15-inch minimum size limit. … The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. …. The trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish per angler; The minimum size limit is 12 inches. … The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit is 5 fish per angler with a 14-inch minimum size limit. Walleye: These have been caught by trolling and jigging over the past week (as of Monday), although trolling over the past weekend was less productive than the prior week. Trollers have caught fish around the outer cans of the Camp Perry firing range with the southern “F” and “G” cans being best, along with “B” can and also from “E” to “D” producing fish; Rapala deep husky jerks have been the most consistent crankbait. Jigging has improved near “K” can of the Camp Perry range and also on some of the reefs within the range; purple hair jigs have been the lure of choice. Please use caution when boating in cold water. Steelheads: Stream and pier anglers have an excellent opportunity to catch quality-sized steelhead trout through May. …. The DOW annually stocks five Lake Erie tributary streams with 6- 8” yearling Little Manistee River (Michigan) strain of steelhead. These migrate out into Lake Erie and spend the summer in the cooler part of the lake before returning to streams during the fall through the spring. Steelhead trout caught by anglers in the streams typically average 25 inches and weigh 5-6 pounds. These fish have usually spent 2-3 summers out in the lake; however, there are a good number of fish that are over 30 inches and weigh more than 10 pounds and have spent up to six summers in the lake. Ohio’s primary steelhead streams are Vermilion, Rocky, Chagrin and Grand rivers and Conneaut Creek. Several others, including the Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Huron and Black rivers and Arcola, Cowles, Wheeler, French, Euclid, Turkey, Beaver and Cold creeks get runs of strays. While DOW biologists have noted a small amount of natural reproduction, it varies greatly from year-to-year. It is too low and erratic to support the quality fishery that has been developed and that anglers have come to expect. Good quantities of cold, spring water and adequate juvenile trout habitat are also rare in NE Ohio’s Lake Erie tributaries. The fantastic fishing has been maintained by annual stocking and by the practice of most anglers to catch and release. Where to catch ’em: Mainstem rivers and tribs have low flows. Some watersheds have received more rain than others and some rivers are rising again, while others remain low. Fishing conditions will be best in rivers with more normal flow rates. Fresh steelhead are well-distributed throughout the stream reaches. Spin-fishing anglers were using eggs, marabou jigs tipped with maggots or plastic curly tails, live bait like red worms, nightcrawlers, or minnows, or small spinners and crankbaits; fly-fishers were using streamers, egg patterns including sucker spawn, woolly buggers and other nymphs. Vermilion River: Fish from the Vermilion boat ramp up to Birmingham. Rocky River: Fish from the metroparks marina to the dam above the Cedar Point Road pools. Cuyahoga River: Fish in Cleveland Harbor, at the SR 82 dam (but not immediately downstream because of the bald eagle nest) and upstream to the Edison Gorge Dam. Chagrin River: Fish from the soccer fields upstream to the South Chagrin Reservation metropark. Grand River: Fish from the Fairport breakwall up to Harpersfield Dam. Arcola Creek: Fish the river mouth, estuary and creek in the metropark. Ashtabula River: Fish from the river mouth up through Indian Trails Park. Conneaut Creek: Fish from the river mouth up to the state line. The water temperature is 41 degrees off of Toledo and 38 degrees off of Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine forecast. … Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating.
Minnows and small jigs can also be successful around fallen tree-tops and submerged structure. For maps of structure sites here and several other lakes in southeast Ohio, call the Wildlife District Four office at 740-589-9930. There is a 9-inch minimum limit and 30 fish daily limit for crappie here, plus a 399-HP limit on this 3,508-acre lake. SOUTHWEST OHIO Tawawa Lake (Shelby County) - Will be stocked with trout Thursday. Try using small spinners or jigs tipped with wax worms; the daily catch limit is 5 per angler Davis Lake (Auglaize County) - Will be stocked with trout Friday. Try using small spinners or jigs tipped with wax worms; the daily catch limit is 5 per angler. East Fork Lake (Clermont County) - Crappies can be caught using live minnows or jigs with plastic bodies; anglers should concentrate on fishing in the shallow areas near stickups and brush piles. Anglers can also try following the wood lines back into the tributary creeks, such as Poplar, Clover, Flat and Barns. For spotted and largemouth bass, try spinner baits and plastic jigs colored black and blue. Hybrid-striped bass are being caught off the beach parking lot by fishing chicken liver just off of the bottom. For channel catfish, try using nightcrawlers. Grant Lake (Brown County) - Crappie fishing should be turning on due to water temperatures on the rise; anglers should try the boat ramp south to the dam and along brushy shoreline areas. Crappie can be caught fishing minnows with floats at about 2-3 feet down; jig-heads with small tubes or curly tails are also recommended. Caesar Creek Lake (Warren/Clinton counties) - White bass can be caught in the upper end of the lake where the two creeks pass under SR 380 and Roxanna-New Burlington Road; try small spinners or white or chartreuse jigs. Try for muskie in water 10 feet deep or less - some were caught off main lake flats, the backs of coves and off riprap; try crankbaits, like Jakes, Shallowraiders, etc., or lipless crankbaits fast through brush piles and banging them off rocks. Lake Loramie (Auglaize/Shelby counties) The annual fishing derby and campout will be held at Lake Loramie State Park May 3-5; this event is the unofficial kickoff of the camping season. Chili soup will be served May 4 along with hikes and other kids’ activities. Pre-register at the main park or camp office for the fishing derby on May 4; you can also register the day of the event. This event at Earl’s Island Pavilion runs 9 a.m. to noon and is open to the public. For information, call the park office at (937) 295-2011. OHIO RIVER Greenup Dam (Scioto County) - Hybridstriped bass are always a favorite catch this time of year. Minnows and jigs with pearl flukes are usually the most popular baits and can be used successfully to catch a nice-sized fish; to switch it up, try fluorescent yellow weighted jigs. Sauger fishing can also be productive now; try chartreuse or white jigs tipped with minnows from the shoreline 4-5 feet off the bottom. LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie through April 30 is 4 fish per angler with a
Earnhardt had no problem being passed by Johnson: Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s fans might not have liked it but the driver himself has no issue with Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson for passing him under caution at Martinsville.
Earnhardt told reporters he would have done the same thing in the same situation. Johnson was leading last Sunday when Earnhardt’s car spun out and brought out the caution. Johnson did try to slow down when his No. 48 got near where Earnhardt was but eventually went around Earnhardt and put the No. 88 down another lap. “He did actually try to slow down and I think that he saw that I had two left-side flat tires and it was pretty pointless for him to wait,” Earnhardt said before a session at Texas Motor Speedway. “If he stopped at all, the guys behind him would have been able to pass him for that position. He couldn’t give up that opportunity or take that chance, or take that risk.” Johnson did go on to win the race with a career-high 346 laps led, moving up from third to take over the Sprint Cup points lead. Earnhardt, who went into Martinsville as the points leader after finishing seventh or better in each of the first five races, finished 24th and two laps behind his teammate. He slipped to third in points. “We shouldn’t have been back there in the first place and been in that position to be run over,” Earnhardt said. “But unfortunately, it was just a bad day for us and it just seemed to get worse. But he wasn’t doing anything that he wasn’t supposed to be doing. The guy is leading the race, you know. He’s got to take care of what he’s doing. He’s got a race to win.” There was so much reaction on social media about what Johnson did that he responded on Twitter the day after the race. “You haters have it right. I’m a bad teammate, I have a cheated up car, I’m lucky and the race was fixed. Gotta love twitter & (hash) NascarFans,” read Johnson’s tweet Monday. Earnhardt made it clear that he had no problems with Johnson. “I would have done the same thing Jimmie did,” Earnhardt added. “I’m leading the race. I’ve got to think about my team and my car and what I’m trying to do. I don’t think he did it out of spite or anything like that. He just was driving his race.” NASCAR could take closer look at sponsorships: NASCAR released a statement Friday it might take a closer look at how it approves sponsors after the National Rifle Association became the title sponsor of this weekend’s Sprint Cup race at Texas during a national debate over gun rights. NASCAR announced it has no official position on gun rights. “Our fans, racing teams and industry partners come from all walks of life and thus have varying points of views and opinions,” the statement read. “As a sport, we are in the business of bringing people together for entertainment, not political debate.” Sponsorships are agreements directly between track and sponsor but NASCAR reserves the right to approve or scuttle them. “The NRA’s sponsorship of the event at Texas Motor Speedway fit within existing parameters that NASCAR affords tracks in securing partnerships,” NASCAR wrote. “However, this situation has made it clear that we need to take a closer look at our approval process moving forward, as current circumstances need to be factored in when making decisions.” The NRA 500 runs tonight as the U.S. Senate weighs legislation intended to reduce gun violence in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last December. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., recently called on the Fox network to not broadcast the race and questioned the Victory Lane tradition at Texas, where the winner gets a cowboy hat and can fire 6-shooters loaded with blanks into the air. Ganassi signs Ryan Briscoe to run Indianapolis 500: Ryan Briscoe will return to the Indianapolis 500 this year in a car fielded by Chip Ganassi Racing. The long-rumored pairing wasn’t completed until last weekend at Barber Motorsports Park and was formally announced by the Ganassi organization Friday. Ganassi said Briscoe will drive the No. 8 Honda with sponsorship from IT services and consulting company NTT Data.

The Herald – 9
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, APRIL 14, 2013 Circumstances that have caused you a great deal of stress and frustration should begin to diminish in the months ahead. Your luck is about to change, letting you thrive in areas where you had failed previously. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It should be a perfect time to formulate plans lurking in the back of your mind. In fact, you’ll have no trouble thinking big. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -There’s a chance you’ll hear about a new financial opportunity that you’ll want to be a part of. It’s being engineered by someone whom you made a lot of money with before. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Most anything in which you involve yourself has good chances for success. This is especially true regarding financial matters. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -A situation that you have lost control of is likely to pay off in a big way. It just goes to show you that Lady Luck likes you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Something exciting could develop that will elevate your hopes and expectations. The first sign of it will come about through one or more of your friends. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Don’t despair if things haven’t been too great lately, especially where your work is concerned. A constructive change is in the making that’ll turn things around quite rapidly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Even if you think your social life is humming, it could always be better. Some fascinating new friends are on the horizon. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -A condition you’ve wanted to change involving a loved one is about to start moving in a new direction. You’ll see the first signs of this today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Perhaps you’ve been of the opinion that Cupid has lost interest in you. If that’s the case, you’re likely to see him redouble his efforts on your behalf to make up for his neglect. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are likely to experience a huge shift in conditions that portend benefits for you both career-wise and financially. This wonderful change could be big. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You are likely to see the first signs of a seismic shift in your popularity and influence. Once this begins to happen, it’ll lead to some interesting developments. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -An obstruction that has blocked your progress on many things will begin to vanish. Although it’s a start, the process will take time. Be patient. MONDAY, APRIL 15, 2013 Your chances of success look to be quite good in coming months, as long as you put forth an effort. Friends and associates will play important but indirect roles in your affairs, if you let them. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Get an early start to maximize the results of a big project. You’ll take control of events and be a bit bolder than usual. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- When negotiating an important business matter, don’t tip your hand. Your chances for getting a good deal can be enhanced if you play your trump card last. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Because you’ll express your thoughts in such a self-assured manner, associates are likely to look to you for leadership. Plan something fun. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -An exciting occurrence could ignite a new career ambition. Strike while the iron is hot, and get to work. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Take time to exchange viewpoints with a person whose intelligence you respect. Even if your opinions aren’t in perfect harmony, you’ll still gain some valuable information. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- An associate who recently accomplished something that you’ve always wanted to do could be a valuable inspiration. Don’t be afraid to go for the brass ring. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Once you think things through and made a decision to try something new, don’t lose heart. To be successful, you need to have the courage of your convictions. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Your greatest asset today is your ability to transform what appears to be outmoded into something that is useful and functional. Use this talent to develop ideas and/or crafts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Everything should work out well in situations where you have to deal with someone on a one-on-one basis. You’ll make the decisions that are best for both of you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Others might allow a lot of grass to grow under their feet, but not you. Even if you have an unusual amount of work, you’ll find a way to get it all done. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You won’t intentionally put on airs, but your style might be more flamboyant than usual. It’s OK, because it will command attention in a positive way. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Because the trends favor you, you’re likely to fare better in commercial dealings today than you will tomorrow. Do everything that needs doing while the fates are working to your benefit. COPYRIGHT 2013 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

The Millers visited the famous St. Andrews Golf Course. In the background is a forThe Millers saw many hydrangea bushes and lots of heather on their trip. This particumer hotel where they ate dinner. lar hydrangea bush is in a yard across from Robert Burns’ cottage in Scotland. (Continued from page 1) guys bought shirts and souvenirs. Once again, we are in Glasgow, Scotland. We are staying at the Swallows Hotel. Our dinner was in the hotel. I had a cheese/vegetable meal with a puffed pastry in chocolate sauce for dessert. There was a transportation museum near Sauciehall Street. There were cars, streetcars, etc. Goebels is on one side of the River Clyde and is known for vandalism. Our group went to a club which featured dancing in traditional costumes, such as kilts. They also had a meal for us, including haggis, which everyone talked about. It is cooked in the stomach of a sheep. We tried it and it was heavily spiced. Blood pudding was also on the menu. Cookie is the only one in the group who likes it. We returned to Newark from Glasgow in 6 hours and 40 minutes. From Newark to Detroit was another hour and 12 minutes. Ireland especially was sooo pretty and such a green country. Of course, they have at least some mist, if not full rain, every day. There were lots of beautiful hydrangeas and fields of heather. We saw a few thatched roofs and will always remember the great soup. This was a very pleasant trip.

Pryor. In later years, he was sought out for his changeling voice, and he contributed to numerous cartoons and animated films. He played three characters in the “The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle” movie in 2000. The Internet Movie Database website credits him as the voice of Papa in the forthcoming “The Smurfs 2” film. He continued to work almost to the end of his life, and to influence new generations of comics. Winters made television history in 1956 when RCA broadcast the first public demonstration of color videotape on “The Jonathan Winters Show.” The comedian quickly realized the possibilities, author David Hajdu wrote in The New York Times in 2006. He soon used video technology “to appear as two characters, bantering back and forth, seemingly in the studio at the same time. You could say he invented the video stunt.” Winters was born Nov. 11, 1925, in Dayton. Growing up during the Depression as an only child whose parents divorced
when he was 7, he spent a lot of time entertaining himself. Winters, who battled alcoholism in his younger years, described his father as an alcoholic. But he found a comedic mentor in his mother, radio personality Alice Bahman. Winters joined the Marines at 17 and served two years in the South Pacific. He returned to study at the Dayton Art Institute, helping him develop keen observational skills. At one point, he won a talent contest (and the first prize of a watch) by doing impressions of movie stars. After stints as a radio disc jockey and TV host in Ohio from 1950-53, he left for New York, where he found early work doing impressions of John Wayne, Cary Grant, Marx and James Cagney, among others. One night after a show, an older man sweeping up told him he wasn’t breaking any new ground by mimicking the rich or famous. Two days later, he cooked up one of his most famous characters: the hard-drinking, dirty old woman Maude Frickert, modeled in part on his own mother and an aunt. Appearances on Paar’s show and others followed and Winters soon had a fol-
lowing. Before long, he was struggling with depression and drinking. Winters was hospitalized for eight months in the early 1960s. It’s a topic he rarely addressed and never dwelled on. When he got out, there was a role as a slow-witted character waiting in the 1963 ensemble film “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.” “I finally opened up and realized I was in charge,” Winters told PBS interviewers for 2000’s “Jonathan Winters: On the Loose.” ‘’Improvisation is about taking chances, and I was ready to take chances.” Roles in other movies followed, as did TV shows, including his own. While show business kept Winters busy, the former art school student was also a painter and writer. His paintings and sketches were often filled with humor. Among his books is a collection of short stories called “Winters’ Tales” (1987). “I’ve done for the most part pretty much what I intended — I ended up doing comedy, writing and painting,” he told U.S. News. “I’ve had a ball. And as I get older, I just become an older kid.” Winters’ wife, Eileen, died in 2009. He is survived by two children, Lucinda Winters and Jay Winters.
BBC in hot seat as anti-Thatcher song climbs British chart
(Continued from Page 3) Aaron Fisher Stone Quarry was a bad one and would take some time to repair. School was back in session at the Franklin, Jefferson and Lincoln buildings on Wednesday. The Parochial schools were scheduled to re-open Thursday morning. Ottoville was also badly flooded. The Little Auglaize River runs right through town in the area that is now part of the park. Rita Turnwald has several pictures in her book, “History of Ottoville and Vicinity 1845 – 2001.” This book can be found in the Delphos Public Library. Half of Middle Point was flooded, with half the residents surrounded by water. The Little Auglaize River was the highest ever known and much farm land was under water. The Ohio Electric Station in Middle Point was surrounded by water and there was 14 inches of water in the waiting room. In Delphos, high water began to recede Tuesday afternoon and by Wednesday morning the town and its people were showing signs of recovery on the east side of the canal. Conditions of all residences which had
LONDON (AP) — Opponents of the late Margaret Thatcher are taking a kind of musical revenge on the former prime minister, pushing the song “Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead” up the British charts in a posthumous protest over her polarizing policies. By Friday the online campaign had propelled the “Wizard of Oz” song to No. 1 on British iTunes and into the top five of the music chart used by the BBC to compile its weekly radio countdown. David Karpf, who studies online campaigns, said the chart battle was an example of a new kind of protest enabled by social media — “A way for people to signal protest en masse without shouting from the rooftops.” The unusual campaign has caused a headache for the BBC. With the ditty near the top of the charts, the broadcaster faced the prospect of airing the words “The Wicked Witch is Dead!” on its Sunday countdown show, just days before Thatcher’s funeral, scheduled for Wednesday. Some lawmakers from Thatcher’s Conservative Party had called for the publicly funded broadcaster to drop the song, while others warned that such a move would mean censoring a form of dissent. BBC director-general Tony Hall said that while the broadcaster found the campaign “distasteful and inappropriate,” he and other executives had decided the song should not be banned — but should not be broadcast in full, either. Ben Cooper, controller of Radio 1 — which broadcasts the chart show — said the clip would be “four or five” seconds long, though he did not say what part of the song would be aired. The controversy — which made the front pages of many national newspapers — serves as a strange musical coda to Thatcher’s time in office. The woman known to many as the Iron Lady was in power for 11 years, during which she wrenched Britain from the economic doldrums and successfully retook the Falkland Islands after Argentina’s 1982 invasion. Many still resent Thatcher for her uncompromising stance against the country’s labor unions and what they saw as her inhumanity toward the working class. The campaign to send “Ding Dong!” to the top of the charts began soon after she died Monday of a stroke at London’s Ritz Hotel. Fans of Margaret Thatcher fought back by dusting off a 1980 punk song called “I’m in Love with Margaret Thatcher,” in a tongue-in-cheek bid to compete.
