VW native Leon at Boston Marathon bombing

BY BRIAN BASSETT Times Bulletin Sports Editor BOSTON The bombings that rocked the Boston Marathon on Monday hit particularly close to home for many Van Wert residents as a Van Wert native found himself in the midst of the chaos. Van Wert High School graduate Craig Leon had finished the marathon in 10th-place hours before the first explosion near the finish line. (To read more about Leons 10th It happened probably two or three hours after I was finished. Our hotel, where the race headquarters were, had all the athletes staying there - its 400 meters away from the finish line, Leon explained. At least two bombs exploded near the end of the 26.2-mile course and Leon recalled being in the hotel lobby when the first bomb went off. I was actually on the ground floor just finishing up some interviews and when people started coming into race command you could tell something was wrong. At the time I didnt know (what was going on) because I didnt hear anything or feel anything. The explosions left at least three dead, including an 8-year-old boy, and more than 140 injured. As people started coming in from the street, thats when we started to hear explosions. People came down from their rooms when they felt it, continued Leon. Many first responders have been praised because of their quick action during the chaos and Leon saw it first-hand. Immediately the hotel went into lockdown, he said. It was basically in lockdown for the next six hours. You couldnt get in and you couldnt get out. Our phones quit working. The park right across from the hotel was kind of ground zero, where all the medical situations were taking place with the finish line being just around the corner. Despite being only several hundred meters from where the bombs were detonated, those in

the hotel lobby, including Leon, had no idea what was going on outside. Everybody was kind of on edge because there was talk of other bombs and that kind of thing. So you didnt really know what to expect or what was going on, he continued. The talk of other bombs became a reality when as many as two unexploded bombs were also found near the end of the 26.2-mile See LEON, page 9

Delphos Council talks water, trash

BY NANCY SPENCER DELPHOS Water and trash were the hot topics at the Delphos City Council meeting Monday. Following councils approval, the city will apply for a low-interest 20-year Department of Environmental and Financial Assistance loan for $36,000 of $54,000 needed to complete a Gressel Drive Water Loop project in the near future. The estimated cost for installing the loop for improved water quality and fire protection was $144,000. The bids came in at $54,000, including engineering, with $36,000 going to Fenton Contracting LLC of Fort Jennings, the lowest bidder for the construction portion of the project.

Greg Berquist told council the work on the clearwells at Waterworks Park is done. Peterson Construction completed Phase II of the Water Treatment Plant By-Pass Improvement Project on Monday. Phase II included bidding ($3,500), construction administration ($3,000) and construction observation ($4,300). Total construction is estimated to cost $247,000, with a Community Development Block Grant covering $194,500. The project fixes a bottleneck between the clearwells and the water plant and the improvements will increase the citys capacity to provide water. The clearwells are used for chlorine contact for water before it is moved to the upground tanks for distribution. The clearwells are currently connected so water has to go through all three before See COUNCIL, page 9

ELIDA At their last meeting before the May Primary Elections, members of the Elida Board of Education and Superintendent Don Diglia expressed their appreciation for all of the community support and volunteer work put into the levy campaign. Our levy committee has been meeting on a regular basis and its very exciting to see the enthusiasm and all of the hard work theyve put in, Diglia said. They really understand the importance of the issue. Weve done some phone polling and got extraordinary responses and its just been met very favorably with the community. Its been a positive experience. Voters will be asked to pass a five-year, 5.95-mill property tax levy, which would raise $2.1 million a year and help the district maintain its bare-bones operation.

VW Commissioners scrap Fort Jennings receives State FEMA checks energy zone designation
BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor Lichtensteiger also noted that without the blanket AEZ proclamation, the township trustees will be able to have more of a say in negotiations. These guys are at ground zero of the projects and dealing with everything every day, he said. However, the AEZ agreement with Blue Creek Wind Farm, developed by Iberdrola Renewables, will be unchanged. That project will be grandfathered with the same stipulations. The alternative energy zone essentially speeds the approval process while cutting down on time and negotiations. The taxes are also greatly reduced under the AEZ. Blue Creek Wind Farm will be paying Van Wert County $9,000 per megawatt of power generated annually in the payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) program. Lichtensteiger explained that the commissioners have spent the last month meeting with a series of persons, including the director of the Ohio Power Siting Board, the director of energy policy of the Ohio Farm Bureau and representatives of the County Commissioners Association of Ohio and various townships in Van Wert County. We talked to many people, trying to do our due diligence and get as much information as we could before taking a stand, Lichtensteiger stated. We want to do everything we can. We have an obligation to look out for the See WIND, page 9 BY STEPHANIE GROVES



VAN WERT With a wind farm being developed in southern Van Wert County and another announced for southern Paulding County, the Van Wert County Commissioners made a move Tuesday designed to give the county some additional leverage. By a 3-0 vote, the commissioners terminated the county-wide alternative energy zone (AEZ) designation which had been passed in 2009. This will give us some ability to negotiate with wind farm developers, said Commissioner Thad Lichtensteiger. This was done so we can strongly encourage a wind developer to be a good corporate citizen.

FORT JENNINGS Village council addressed an array of business Tuesday, including park improvements and cleanup, Fort Fest preparations, general street maintenance and the Second Street reconstruction project. Mayor Jim Smith announced the village received two checks from the state for the damages caused by the storm that swept through the area on June 29, 2012. One check from FEMA totaled close to $3,800 and the other was $1,000. The Police Committee and Officers Report included an account of recent car break-ins. Chief Ethel Vaughn detailed that money was being taken out of vehicles. I just found out about a burglary this past weekend, Chief Ethel Vaughn reported. I cant say much but it is under investigation. Park Board President Jerry Siefker reported on the progress being made on the restroom facilities at the park. So far, the boring is done, Siefker said. Its too soft to continue. In March, council approved Our Tree Service to remove five trees in the village for $1,470 and no more than $3,000 to remove four Ash trees in Fort Jennings Park. Village Maintenance Supervisor Ted Wrasman reported that tree removal could begin today and the crew will be looking for dry work, not in the mud.

Contemplating chaos in a nation of soft targets

By ALLEN G. BREED AP National Writer When her cousin and 11 others were gunned down at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater last July, Anita Busch lost all interest in her favorite television crime dramas. And when she heard that three people had been shot dead at an Oregon shopping mall in December, she stopped her Christmas shopping and sneaked out the back door of a department store. After Aurora, even my little niece whos 11 was afraid to go into a mall, to go shopping, the Los Angeles woman says. I look around all the time. I think everyone does. The United States proclaims itself the worlds foremost economic and military superpower the mightiest nation on Earth, land of opportunity for those who want to work hard and prosper. But as Mondays bombings at the Boston Marathon illustrate, the reality is that, from sea to shining sea, this is a nation of soft targets, full of opportunities for those who want to do it harm. And so the message Tamara Ruben sought to convey to her third- through seventh-graders as they celebrated Israeli Independence Day Tuesday at Temple Beth El Mekor Chayim in Cranford, N.J., was to not let fear rule them that as much as possible not to let this event to dictate our daily life and make us afraid and paranoid and change drastically our style of life. Enjoy the simple things the simple things that give us contentment and joy in life, says Ruben, director of the synagogues school. Like Busch, so many Americans have a visceral reaction when the backdrops of everyday life a school, a supermarket, a mall, a sporting event become places of violence and tears. The Boston bombings had Tricia Kaye secondguessing, if only briefly, her decision to participate in her fifth Chicago Marathon this October. I had that kind of gut reaction that theres no way to secure a race like that, and that its better not to do it, said the 35-year-old Chicagoan, who works for a national financial planning company. But it quickly changed to Screw that, Im going to do it. Lt. Christopher Shane Henderson, a firefighter and paramedic in St. Petersburg, Fla., says he cant take his 20-month-old daughter to the circus or a fair without the specter of 9/11 or some other tragedy casting a pall. This absolutely impacts how you view people, the 33-year-old father says. I think its pretty disgusting that people cant go to places and enjoy things with our families without the idea lingering in our heads that somebody

Tribes turn to tech to save endangered languages

LAS VEGAS (AP) In a windowless conference room in a Las Vegas casino, about three dozen people are swishing their fingers across iPads, trying out test versions of new apps and screening for glitches. But these are no Silicon Valley techies in town for one of the citys massive electronics shows. Many are from farflung American Indian reservations, and their high-tech devices are serving a decid-

has malintent. Psychologist Timothy Strauman says these reactions are only too natural. Growing up in Philadelphia in the late 1950s and early 60s, Strauman remembers the duck and cover drills and the signs pointing out the nearest nuclear fallout shelter. What we felt then was, you know, the WORLD could come to an end, says Strauman, a professor at Duke University in Durham, N.C. Mutually assured destruction that was the policy. Personally, Strauman who specializes in depression and anxiety feels much safer today. Anytime a high-profile event like this occurs, one of the things that it does is it makes people think that the event is likely to happen again, he says. It changes our sense of how likely this is to occur ... and so it makes it very difficult for people in the immediate aftermath to stop and realize that its still an extraordinarily rare event. It doesnt feel that way, says Busch. Her cousin, Micayla Medek, was just 23 when she died in a hail of semi-automatic gunfire during a premiere for Dark Knight Rises at the Century 16 cinema last year. Busch listens in despair as politicians debate whether to debate tighter restrictions on high-powered weapons with high-capacity magazines.

He was preceded in death by two children, Sandra Kay Gorman and Phillip Bruce Gorman; five brothers, Glenn, Frank, George, Tom and Fred Ted Gorman; four sisters, Eleanor Winkler, Katherine Williams, Florence Hiller and Helen Skerritt.

edly old-school purpose: trying to save their languages from the brink of extinction. Experts say a growing number of tribes are trying to revitalize their languages, which in some cases are spoken by only a small handful of people. And increasingly, theyre enlisting technology in the effort. Were in a race against time, said Lewis Bleu St. Cyr, 26, who attended the February workshop to scope out the possibility of developing a language learning app for the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. The goal is for younger kids to get interested. Linguists estimate about 200 Native American languages are spoken in the U.S. and Canada, with another 100 already extinct. In the early 1990s, experts estimated only 11 percent of tribal languages were still being passed traditionally from parents to children. The bulk of the surviving languages were spoken only by tribal members who were middle-aged or older.

Cincinnati needs another $17M for streetcar


Do we know when we are being biased?

BY LINDSAY MCCOY DHI Correspondent VAN WERT - The YWCA of Van Wert County welcomed Courtnee Carrigan of the YWCA in Columbus to speak to interested locals about unconscious bias and the effect it can have in the workplace, at home, between relationships, and in the community. A meal was provided by Van Wert Manor to guests attending this educational event. Carrigans main expertise is race, class, and gender, as it is these subjects that really get her going. She began her talk by presenting attendees with the Herman Grid, a grid of black squares, equal in size with white space in between. While looking at the squares, each person began to notice grey spots in the white space, spots that were not actually present in the image. We believe what we see is real, said Carrigan. Everyone has it. Carrigan explained that these nonexistent dots are like biases. People see them and believe and know they are there when, in most cases they are not. These grey spots can represent the biases people place on women, children, the elderly, racial minorities, people in wheelchairs, and many more. According to Carrigan, unconscious bias is often not recognized for what it is. People believe set stereotypes to be true and often do not realize that they may be hurting themselves or others. Often times, these biases are passed down to young people from their family and grandparents. Carrigan went on to say that biases can affect an interview and whether or not someone even receives a job. A study done by MIT showed that people often did not get an interview or job depending on their name and the bias that proceeds it. School teachers are another professional that can highly affect others by their own person stereotypes. Children may get less attention and a completely different education based on whether they are male or female, rich or poor, or white or black. Stereotypes are not our friends, reminded Carrigan. They hurt us. Oftentimes negative stereotypes come to our minds before the positive, but there are ways to combat these hidden biases. We must recognized that human brain make mistakes without us even knowing it. We need to unlearn some behaviors because we are all bias. I have done diversity work for 15 years and even I still have biases. People attending the speech were each assigned a group that is commonly stereotyped and asked to list the first biases that come to mind about this particular group. Whole lists were made to describe these stereotypes, and Carrigan reminded that these stereotypes do not define every person in this group as we are all unique individuals with unique personalities and traits. Carrigan encouraged Van Wert locals to support projects that contain positive images in support of other people of all types and to collaborate with affective programs that inspire diversity.


CINCINNATI (AP) Cincinnatis city manager says another $17 million is needed for the proposed streetcar project downtown. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that City Manager Milton Dohoney sent a memo to city council members late Tuesday with the request. The memo comes after construction bids for the project came in at least $26 million over budget in February. Dohoney wrote in the memo that if construction doesnt start soon, it increases chances the project will be bid again, which could increase the cost. The expected price tag for the entire project has already been pushed to more than $130 million. Its the latest hurdle for efforts to move forward with the downtown streetcar, including two ballot measures drafted by opponents to do away with the project.

Ohio Auto glass company to add up to 350 jobs

ATHENS (AP) Students at Ohio University arent happy about a proposed tuition hike. More than 100 students, some toting signs, marched on the southeastern Ohio campus Tuesday to demand a tuition freeze like at other state schools. The Columbus Dispatch reports there could be more protests on the Athens campus Friday when university trustees plan to vote on a proposal to hike undergraduate tuition by 1.6 percent. The proposal also includes a 3.5-percent increase in room rates and a 0.5-percent hike in board fees. Besides a tuition freeze, protesters are demanding salary caps and cuts to top administrators salaries. The University of Toledo and Ohio State University have announced plans to freeze tuition to make college more affordable. Ohio University now charges instate undergraduates $10,216 per year in tuition and fees.

OH House budget offers Masons property-tax relief

By JULIE CARR SMYTH and ANN SANNER The Associated Press COLUMBUS Charitable fraternal organizations more than a century old could avoid paying property taxes under a narrowlycrafted budget proposal thats headed to a vote in the Ohio House. Groups eligible for the roughly $4.8 million tax break include the Masons who count Republican House Speaker William Batchelder as a member Grange, Odd Fellows, Prince Hall Masons and Knights of Columbus. Veterans groups dont appear to be covered. The budget-writing House Finance Committee approved the tax measure Tuesday as part of a voluminous twoyear, $61.5 billion budget package. The provision was included even as significant elements of Gov. John Kasichs proposed tax code overhaul were removed from the bill to allow more time for study. The panel voted 20-9 to send the bill to the House floor, where a vote is likely Thursday. That was after agreeing to add $60 million for nursing homes; $16 million for a workforce training pilot program for the economically disadvantaged; a required study of giftededucation funding; and a prohibition against distributing contraceptives or promoting sexual gateway activities in health-education classes. Batchelder spokesman Mike Dittoe said erasing the tax burden on fraternal groups is not a new idea. This was not suddenly generated by the Speaker or anything like that, Dittoe said. Its been around for quite some time. He said the House twice passed bills instituting the exemption. They were sponsored by Republican state Sen. Jim Hughes, a then-state representative whos also a

Official testifying on Ohio fracking oversight

By JULIE CARR SMYTH The Associated Press COLUMBUS Ohios top oil and gas regulator went to Washington today to endorse state oversight of fracking, rather than federal, and the disposal of wastewater from drilling. Rick Simmers, chief of the states Division of Oil and Gas Resources, told The Associated Press he planned to focus his testimony before the U.S. House Natural Resources Committee on Ohios strong regulations and positive track record of enforcement of the drilling technique known as fracking. Ohio, Utah and Texas were represented. His appearance follows calls last month by a coalition of environmental and community groups for a federal review of Ohios state-run program. Simmers did not believe the invitation to appear was related to the complaint. Groups including ProgressOhio and the Buckeye Forest Council cited recent federal indictments of a Youngstown-area businessman and his employee for alleged illegal dumping of oil and gas waste, and a series of earthquakes near Youngstown among their concerns. Simmers said Ohios program imposes tougher regulations than its sister program within the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and has received high marks in peer reviews joined by both outside regulators and environmental groups. We welcome any review of our program because were doing a great job, he said. We are both better suited and better situated to run this program than the federal EPA. Simmers said inspectors employed by his division, a part of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, live in the communities they serve and so are able to quickly conduct inspections and respond to emergencies. He said the Kasich administration has worked to improve regulations to reflect the latest technology and science in the burgeoning oil and gas industry and to crack down on environmental violators. In announcing last months complaint, Teresa Mills of the Center for Health, Environment and Justice, alleged the state Natural Resources Department had become a captured agency because it relies on the industry it regulates for income. Activists questioned whether the agency can impartially conduct the investigation ordered by Gov. John Kasich into whether potentially lax regulations led to the dumping incident alleged by federal prosecutors. In February Hardrock Excavating LLC owner Ben Lupo and employee Michael Guesman were accused of violating the Clean Water Act by illegally dumping oil and gas wastes into a storm drain. The two pleaded not guilty. Lupo also owns D&L Energy, whose deep injection well was at the epicenter of more than a dozen earthquakes in the Youngstown area, mostly in late 2011. An earthquake on the eve of 2012 prompted Gov. John Kasich to issue a temporary moratorium on new injection activity in the vicinity.

Mason. Both bills stalled in the Ohio Senate. There is not conflict of interest on this because the Speaker is a Mason, Dittoe said. There are a large number of members on both sides of the aisle who belong to that organization and none of them are receiving a direct benefit because of this amendment. The website of the Masons Grand Lodge of Ohio attributed the amendment to Batchelder. HB 59 (the state budget bill) is our greatest chance to receive this well-deserved property tax (relief) and enable these fraternal orders to continue their charitable and social work, the posting said. To support Brother Batchelders efforts to enable our continued charitable and fraternal existence in Ohio communities, please send him as well as your state Representative and Senator a letter to that effect. Chad Simpson, the Grand Lodges director of program development, said he was uncertain of any role played by Batchelder, whose father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all Masons. Hes the Speaker of the House and its a part of the Houses budget and so Im not sure how involved he was in that, Simpson said. We learned about it the same way you did and wanted to say how thankful we are. Simpson said the Masonic Lodge in Hilliard, a Columbus suburb, pays $8,000 a year in property taxes a third of its budget. The Masons building in nearby Worthington, the oldest lodge building in North America, is tentatively looking for a buyer due to a $23,000 property tax bill, he said. Our buildings are not used like a business to generate income, theyre used just for meetings of the organization, or to organize charitable events, Simpson said. The typical lodge hall is, in a way, like another community center.

The Next Generation

Rahrig awarded Endowed Scholarship from UF
Information submitted Mike Rahrig, a junior physical therapy major, has been awarded The University of Findlays Owens-Illinois Plastic Products Division

Scholarship for the 2012-13 academic year. Rahrig, a 2009 graduate of Jefferson High School, is the son of Lisa and Chuck Rahrig of Venedocia.

Ottoville honors class visits GM Foundry

Information submitted On April 10, the Honors Calculus class at Ottoville High School took a tour of the GM Foundry in Defiance. The class earned the money to go on the tour through a grant from Target. In order to get the grant, the students worked together to write an essay on why they deserved the trip and how it would benefit them. They decided to go to the GM Foundry, because many of the calculus students want to go on and pursue a career in engineering. While at the foundry, they were led on a tour by Ted Herman, a resident of Ottoville and an electrical engineer at GM. Herman showed the class the different processes used for making the engine castings and some of the measures the plant has used to become more efficient over the years. The class was very impressed by these processes and how quickly and efficiently each robot and person responsible for them has to work. Students also met up with other Ottoville community members, including Rick Boecker, Mike Basinger and Mark Schnipke. Basinger and Schnipke are on the safety team at the foundry and discussed the importance of safety in the plant. Mark discussed the importance of education and his role in managing the pre-machining division at the plant. The class and its teacher, Aaron Verhoff, appreciated how informative and helpful everyone was. The tour was a great experience and encouraged the students to pursue careers in engineering. The class would like to express special thanks to Herman for his help in scheduling, planning and spending his time with the class on the tour. The students would also like to thank all the engineers who took time out of their day to offer their knowledge and experiences with the class. Finally, they would like to thank Target for the grant and GM for allowing them to visit their world-class facility.

Familys miniature pony gives birth

BY LOVINA EICHER The children went back to school after a week here at home for Spring break. My husband Joe went back to work on Tuesday. The house seems empty during the day. Daughter Susan is working 4 days this week but is home today. I am glad for her help. She is going to bake chocolate chip and monster cookies as our cookie jar has been empty too long. Our friend Barb from Bristol, Ind., came for a visit recently and brought two big bags of M & Ms. The children asked if we could make monster cookies with some of the M & Ms. A lot was accomplished last week while everyone was home. Joe managed to get the 100 pounds of summer sausage smoked. It turned out very good and everyone seems to like it. We were relieved that it turned out okay. This is a rainy and cold week. I am so glad last week was nicer and warmer when everyone was home. Those warm sunny days made it nice to hang the laundry outside to dry. It could be brought in folded and put away all on the same day. The highlight of our week is the miniature pony Minnie giving birth to a foal on April 9. It is so cute and small. Our border collie dog buggy is quite a bit bigger than the little filly. Daughter Lovina, 8, was with Minnie and the pony cart earlier that evening. Susan went to check on her after supper and she came running in all excited to tell us Minnie had her foal. Needless to say the whole family ended up in the barn to meet this foal that we so anxiously waited for. The children have run back and forth many times already to keep an eye on this precious foal. So far we havent figured out what his name will be. Too many different suggestions so we might have to draw names. The filly has a colorful coat of fur and resembles its father which is our pony Tiger. Our family along with Timothy and Mose attended baptismal services in Hersey, Mich., for our nephew Joseph. This was the first time we were to Hersey to see where Joes sister Christine and family live. Its an almost 3-hour drive from here. We spent the afternoon at Jake and Christines house visiting and enjoying popcorn. We appreciated all the hospitality from the church members. Son Kevin and Jake and Christines son Matthew are like two peas in a pod. To think that they dont often see each other they enjoy playing together so much. They are both 7 years old old. Kevin said, Matthew is my cousin but he is also my friend. Hes already looking forward to the next time they will see each other but being so far apart doesnt make it easy. Jakes sent us home a taste of their maple syrup and venison sausage they make. Mose has also brought us several jars of the maple syrup his family makes. The pancake syrup doesnt get used now as everyone likes the maple syrup. The rhubarb should be up before too long so give this cake a try. RHUBARB COFFEECAKE 1 1/2 cups white sugar 1 egg 2 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 cup shortening 1 cup sour milk 1 teaspoon soda 2 cups diced rhubarb 1/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon Cream 1 1/2 cups sugar and shortening. Add 1 egg.


Beat and alternate sour milk with flour, soda, and salt. Add vanilla and beat. Fold in rhubarb and pour into a greased and floured pan. Mix 1 /4 cup sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Geise on a crusade for Capital



DELPHOS It was always the dream of St. Johns senior guard Curtis Geise to play basketball at the next level since he was a youngster. That dream was fulfilled Tuesday morning when he signed a national letter-ofintent to play the sport at Capital University in Bexley. This is something I always wanted to do since I was little. Im glad I have the chance to achieve it, Geise said. That understood, this was not an easy decision, by any means. It was a long process and it was hard. There were a lot of schools that showed interest, he explained. All of the Ohio Athletic Conference schools were in the running, as well as Saginaw Valley State; they were the only Division II school that showed interest. It came down to Capital was in Columbus, which excites me because its not too far away and yet it is, as well as they had the academic program biology pre-med I want to get into. They also won the league this year, which tells me they have a solid program that I want to be part of. However, they lose a number of guards and that opens up the chance to play right away. It also came down to finding a comfort level with the NCAA Division III Crusaders under head coach Damon Goodwin. I had a chance to meet all

Curtis Geise, seated center, signs a national letter-of-intent Tuesday morning to attend and play basketball for Capital University in Columbus. Seated with him are his parents, Dan and Leann Geise. Standing is St. Johns head coach Aaron Elwer. (Delphos Herald/ Jim Metcalfe) the guys and it was good, he acknowledged. Im excited about my future. Im also glad that this decision is finally over; I feel relieved. It was on my mind for a while. Geise feels coming from St. Johns as a 4-year varsity player has left him prepared to play at the Division III level, though there will be an adjustment period. I was fortunate to have the same coach for four years (Aaron Elwer) and I learned a lot from him. He really helped me develop as a player and he was very helpful in me becoming a better player, he continued. I was in a lot of close and exciting games over the years and we always had a lot of support from the crowd. I know I have to step it up, especially as far as the speed of the game and the physicality, That will take some time but Im confident I will make the adjustment in a decent amount of time. Right now, Im not sure where I will be, whether the point guard or the 2. I will finish the baseball season and then turn my attention to basketball; Ill be playing in their open gyms and probably then will get a better feel for where I will be. I sat down with Coach Elwer after the basketball season and we talked about what I needed to do to get better and they will send me their off-season workout program. Elwer also shares Geises confidence. I dont think Ive had a harder worker in my coaching years, whether in the film room, at practice or wherever we were. He showed that from day one as a freshman, Elwer added. He was in the gym constantly trying to get better in some way. He was not afraid to ask questions. What I will miss most is his leadership; he led by example. I was proud of being able to coach him and I have no doubts he will be successful at the next level.

Super voice gone: Pat Summerall dead at 82

By STEPHEN HAWKINS The Associated Press DALLAS The voice of football. The NFLs narrator for generations. A master of restraint. Pat Summerall soothed American television audiences over four decades his deep, resonant voice and simple, understated style served as the perfect complement to the boisterous enthusiasm of John Madden, his partner in a celebrated pairing that lasted half of the NFL player-turned-announcers career. Summerall died Tuesday at age 82 of cardiac arrest, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center spokesman Jeff Carlton said, speaking on behalf of Summeralls wife, Cheri. Summerall called 16 Super Bowls and became such a large part of the NFL that it was easy to forget he was also the leading voice of the Masters and the U.S. Open tennis tournament. He was royalty in the broadcast booth, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. His final play-by-play words beside Madden were succinct, of course, as he called the game-ending field goal of the Super Bowl for Fox on Feb. 3, 2002, when New England beat St. Louis 20-17. Its right down the pipe. Adam Vinatieri. No time on the clock. And the Patriots have won Super Bowl XXXVI. Unbelievable, Summerall intoned. Sparse, exciting, perfect. A flawless summation without distracting from the reaction viewers could see on the screen. At the end of their final broadcast together, Madden described Summerall as a treasure and the spirit of the National Football League in a tribute to the partner that the former Oakland Raiders coach badly wanted to keep and did when he had to switch networks 20 years ago. Pat was my broadcasting partner for a long time but more than that he was my friend for all of these years, Madden wrote in a statement released Tuesday. Pat Summerall is the voice of football and always will be. Summerall played 10 NFL seasons from 1952-61 with the Chicago Cardinals and New York Giants but it was in his second career that he became a voice familiar to generations of sports fans, not only those of the NFL. Summerall started doing NFL games for CBS in 1964 and became a play-byplay guy 10 years later. He was also part of coverage of the PGA Tour, including the Masters from 1968-94, and U.S. Open tennis. When CBS lost its NFL deal after the 1993 season, Summerall switched to Fox to keep calling NFL games with Madden. Summerall had hoped to keep working with CBS for other events like the Masters but network executives saw it otherwise. At the time, CBS Sports anchor Jim Nantz said he was very saddened that Summerall didnt get to leave CBS under his own terms. A recovering alcoholic, Summerall had a liver transplant in April 2004.

After an intervention involving, among others, former NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle, former CBS Sports President Peter Lund and former PGA Tour Commissioner Deane Beaman, Summerall checked into the Betty Ford Clinic in April 1992. I had no intention of quitting, I was having too good a time, Summerall told The Associated Press in a 2000 story. The prescribed stay at Betty Ford is 28 days. They kept me 33 because I was so angry at the people who did the intervention, the first five days didnt do me any good. Summerall received the liver of a 13-year-old junior high football player from Arkansas who died unexpectedly from an aneurysm. Summerall had an emotional meeting with the teenagers family the following year. He always had a joke, Madden added. Pat never complained and we never had an unhappy moment. He was something very special. Summerall often shared his testimony with Christian groups and told his story when speaking before other organizations. In his 2006 book, Summerall: On and Off The Air, he frankly discussed his personal struggles and professional successes. Long before broadcasting Super Bowl games, 16 for television and 10 more for radio in fact, before there was even a Super Bowl Summerall played a role in what is known in football circles as The Greatest Game Ever Played, the 1958 NFL championship. The Giants lost to the Baltimore Colts 23-17 in the NFLs first-ever overtime game. Born George Allen Summerall on May 10, 1930, in Lake City, Fla., he was an all-state prep football and basketball player there and lettered in baseball and tennis. He played college football at Arkansas before going to the NFL. After breaking his arm in the preseason as a rookie for Detroit, Summerall played five years for the Chicago Cardinals before four seasons with the Giants. While he was also a defensive back, Summerall was primarily a kicker, making 100 field goals and 256-of-265 extra points in his career. The most famous was a 49-yarder through the wind and snow at Yankee Stadium that gave the Giants a 13-10 victory against the Cleveland Browns. The win gave the Giants the home field for a rematch with Cleveland in the playoffs and a win in that game put New York in the famous title game against

Pat Summerall

Baltimore. In a story distributed by the Giants, former teammate Frank Gifford a long-time broadcaster himself said Summerall was an underrated player because coach Jim Lee Howell and offensive assistant Vince Lombardi wanted to preserve him for kicking. Lombardi didnt want him to get hurt, Gifford recalled. But we didnt need him as a football player, we needed him as a kicker. I was going both ways and doing the kicking, too. We picked him up from the Cardinals and that was the end of my kicking career. When asked about his fondest NFL memories during a May 2009 interview with the AP, Summerall replied there were things that stood out as a player and broadcaster. You always remember the days as a player. I was in four championship games before there was a Super Bowl, so I remember those very well, he recalled. Broadcasting, I remember the last (Super Bowl) I did. Of course, I remember that. I remember the first one most vividly than any of the rest. Summerall was part of the CBS broadcast of the inaugural Super Bowl in Los Angeles on Jan. 15, 1967. After working the first half in the broadcast booth, he switched places with Gifford at halftime and was a sideline reporter during the second half. To look at the Coliseum that day and see that there were like 40,000 empty seats and the most expensive ticket was $12, its incredible to realize what was going on and what its grown to over the years, he added during a 2009 AP interview. Its sort of staggering to me. Summerall, who spent his final years in the Dallas area, living in Southlake, was a member of the North Texas Super Bowl host committee for the game played there in February 2011 in the $1.1 billion Cowboys Stadium that opened in 2009. Summerall became a play-by-play announcer in 1974 strictly by accident. He was working with Jack Buck and CBS boss Bob Wussler thought the two commentators sounded too much alike. Summerall told Wussler that if a change was going to be made, that hed like to do play-by-play and the following Sunday thats what Summerall was doing. After his final game with Madden, Summerall remained a full-time broadcaster for Fox one more season, doing primarily Dallas Cowboys games during the 2002 season. He decided to step down the following year when he realized he would spend most of the season away from home. Summerall did a handful of NFL games for Fox and ESPN the next few seasons. He did play-by-play for Foxs broadcast of the Cotton Bowls games from 2007-10, then for the bowls 75th anniversary in January 2011 conducted interviews as part of the pregame show and game broadcast. He also had voiceovers that were part of Masters broadcasts for CBS and game broadcasts on NFL Network. Funeral arrangements were incomplete.

Kalida bats bash by Blue Jays

By JIM METCALFE DELPHOS Both St. Johns and Kalida graduated a ton of seniors from last springs baseball teams, meaning both were beginning 2013 with a lack of experienced players. Both needed simply to get at-bats and innings in the field and on the mound but last weeks rainy weather interrupted their progress. On a pleasant Monday night at Stadium Park, the Wildcats went up 5-0 in the first 1 1/2 and pounded out 15 hits to grab their first win of the season, 9-6, in a non-league clash. The Wildcats (1-3) were led at the plate by Kyle Kehres (4-for-4, 3 runs batted in), Austin Swift (3-for-3, 3 runs scored) and Brent Hovest (3-for-4, 3 runs, 2 RBIs). Adam Knueve scored twice. The right-handed Kehres (1-1) went the first 5-plus frames on the mound, ceding six hits, five earned runs, hitting three, walking two, two wild pitches and fanning two. Senior Kyle Landin came on in relief and threw two frames, giving up two hits, an earned tally, two wild pitches, one hit batter and one strikeout. It seems like we take one step forward and two steps back. When we get good defense, we dont seem to score any runs; we cant quite put it together yet, St. Johns coach Ryan Warnecke said. With so many new faces, we just need to get playing time right now but the weather is really causing us trouble. We fell behind tonight and had to battle uphill the entire way. The Blue Jays (2-5) amassed eight hits, with Ryan Buescher going 4-for-4 and Curtis Geise 2-for-4 (2 runs, 2 RBIs). Craig Klausing scored twice. Senior Troy Warnecke (0-2) went 4 2/3 innings (13 hits, 9 runs, 5 earned, 1 BB, 1 K) and junior T.J. Hoersten mopped up (2 hits, 2 Ks). Were in the same boat; we need the at-bats and the innings that we havent been able to get, veteran Kalida coach Jim McBride noted. Weve been competitive so far in our games. Once we start getting some games in, well get better; we already have from day one to now. The Wildcats went up 2-0 in the top of the first. Hovest led off with a single and stole second. After Swift walked, Kehres launched a 1-out single to score Swift. Rob Kleman singled to load the bases. A passed ball scored Swift for a 2-0 edge. The Blue Jays countered with two outs in the home half. Warnecke was hit by a pitch and Buescher doubled him to third but both were left stranded. Kalida made it 5-0 in the second. With one down, Knueve, Hovest and Swift singled to load the sacks. Neil Recker bounced out to third to score Knueve and advanced the other runners. Kehres brought them both in with a 2-run double to deep right center for that 5-nil score. The hosts again tried to retaliate in the home half. With one gone, Klausing walked. An out later, Ben Wrasman got aboard via an error but Geises grounder forced him at second. Kyle Vorst singled to start the third and advanced on a wild pitch. Trent Gerding singled him to third with one down but then Knueves comebacker started a 1-6-3 twin-killing. The Jays got within 5-2 in the bottom half. Andrew Metzger singled to left to start the

Lancers ride Farmer past Jefferson 7-2

By NICK JOHNSON DHI Correspondent
RURAL MIDDLE POINT The Lincolnview Lancers faced off against the Jefferson Wildcats in baseball on Monday night at Lincolnview High School. The Lancers used a strong pitching performance from Eli Farmer to win the game 7-2. The Wildcats managed just two hits through the first four innings; both were singles to lead off the inning by Ross Thompson and Drew Kortokrax. The Lancers got on the board early in the game with three runs in the first inning. Nick Leeth reached base by a walk to start the inning. Later in the inning, Matt Oechsle singled and came around to score on an Austin Leeth triple to give the Lancers a 3-0 lead. Lincolnview loaded the bases in the bottom of the second frame but Zach Ricker (4 innings, 4 runs, 4 hits, 3 walks, 1 hit batter, 6 strikeouts) struck out two Lancer batters to strand all three runs. In the bottom of the fourth inning, Nick Leeth tripled and Kyle Williams picked up an RBI when he groundout to the third baseman, which allowed Leeth to score and make the game 4-0, Lancers. In the top of the fifth with one out, Jefferson got backto-back singles from Jordan Herron and Zavier Buzard. With Herron on third base, Seth Wollenhaupt beat out a double-play ball to pick up an RBI and put the Wildcats on the board down 4-1. Lincolnview countered with two runs in the bottom of the frame as Derek Friesner and Austin Leeth both walked to start the inning. Tyler Richey singled home one run and Austin Leeth scored on a wild pickoff attempt by Thompson to extend the Lancer lead to 6-1.

frame and stole second. An out later, Buescher got aboard via an infield single up the middle and swiped second. Drew Wagners comebacker scored Metzger and Buescher scored from third on an infield hit to short by Clay Courtney. He advanced on a wild pitch but got caught at third trying to advance on a wild pitch. Kalida extended the lead to 6-2 in the fourth. With one gone, Swift singled to right. An error on a pickoff play put him at second, from where he scored as Recker bounced a hit off Geises glove at short. Recker was caught trying to swipe third. Kehres singled to left but was stranded. The visitors tacked on their final runs in the fifth. With two down, Gerding got aboard on a 2-base error on a fly ball. Knueve was plunked by a pitch. Both advanced on a wild pitch and scored on a 2-run single to right by Hovest, with the batter ending up at second on an error on the sequence. That chased Warnecke for T.J. Hoersten. A wild pitch put Hovest at third, from where he scored on Swifts infield hit to second base. The Jays got within 9-3 in the bottom of the fifth. Geise tripled to deep center and scored on a wild pitch. An out later, Warnecke was hit by a pitch and Buescher singled. Wagner bounced out to advance both runners but they were left stranded where they were. Kehres opened the Wildcats sixth with a knock to left but a 1-out 6-4-3 double play ended their final threat. The Jays tallied their final three runs in the home half. Klausing was walked to lead it off and Hoersten was hit by a pitch to finish Kehres for Kyle Landin. An out later, A wild pitch advanced both runners and both scored on Geises 2-run double to left center. A wild pitch put him at third. After Metzger was hit by a pitch, the Jays used a double steal, with Metzger getting tagged out at second but Geise scoring for the 9-6 deficit. Buescher started the Jays last at-bat with a single to left but was eliminated by a 1-out grounder by Courtney. Klausings comebacker to Landin finished the contest. St. Johns returns to action 5 p.m. tonight at home versus Fort Jennings (the Minster game was postponed from Tuesday), while Kalida visits Fort Jennings Thursday.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, Williams and Conner McCleery both reached base before Oechsle singled home Williams to push Lincolnviews lead to 7-1. The Wildcats got one more crack at Farmer (complete game; 5 hits, 1 BB, 3 Ks) in the top of the seventh when Zach Kimmett crushed a double to left field before a Herron sacrifice fly to center brought him home. Farmer got another fly ball to center field to retire the next batter and the final out was a diving catch by Jalen Roberts in left field to end the game. That is the team we want to be right there: got a good pitching performance and defense made the plays we had no errors, Lancer coach Kevin Longstreth said. When we get on the base paths, we are going to be aggressive and we are working hard to be that team right there. He (Eli Farmer) really kept them off-balance; they didnt hit the ball hard until the seventh inning. Then he started to press a little bit and they got some hits off him. The Lancers improve to 3-5 (1-0 NWC); the Wildcats drop to 7-4 (0-1). They made plays in the first inning and all throughout the game. They did a lot of good things, Jefferson coach Doug Geary said. When you get down three runs early on, things get tough and they added on in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings. We got the capability of scoring five or six runs in an inning but that is a very tough thing to do in baseball. Jefferson hosts Perry tonight (weather permitting); Lincolnview hosts St. Henry.

Boecker walk-off HR lifts Big Green

By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald OTTOVILLE - After a week of nearly five inches of rain, roads closed and cooler temperatures, things seemed to get back to normal again as the Continental Pirates traveled to Ottoville to take on the Big Green in their Putnam County League baseball matchup Monday. The Big Green led throughout the contest only to see the Pirates come back but ultimately fall short in extra innings 6-4. Pirates head coach Terry Dockery brought with him a very young often playing several freshmen but an aggressive team both at the plate and on the bases. In the first inning, the Pirates mounted a rally after a throwing error by the Big Green shortstop that sent freshman Terry Dockery to second base. Tyler Dockery singled to left field but the Big Green stopped the threat when Terry Dockery was thrown out at the plate trying to score. In the bottom of the first inning, senior Derek Schimmoeller led off with a walk and subsequently moved to second on a wild pitch by Pirates starting pitcher Luke Sullivan. Schimmoeller came home with the first run of the game on a run-producing single by senior Jacob Turnwald. The Pirates tied the game 1-1 in the second inning on singles by Saige Deleon, Gabe Williams, Cody Etter and a run-producing hit by Sullivan. The game remained tied until the bottom of the fourth inning when senior Bryan Hohlbein led off the Ottoville inning with a double down the left-field line. He advanced to third after a third strike on sophomore Joel Beining eluded the Pirates catcher and scored the Big Greens second run on a wild pitch. The Big Green pushed their lead out to 4-1 in the fifth after junior Alex Horstman reached first base safely on an error by the Pirates shortstop and advanced to third on Derek Schimmoellers single. Turnwald again came through for the Big Green, driving in Horstman with the third run of the game and moving Schimmoeller to third. For the second time in two innings, the Big Green took advantage of another wild pitch, allowing Schimmoeller to score the fourth run for the home team. The Pirates and their neverdie attitude really showed in the final innings as they roared back from a 3-run deficit to tie the game 4-4 in the top of the seventh inning and send the game into extra innings. The Pirates took advantage of some clutch hitting: doubles by Tyler Dockery and Fred Shephard; and two (4 for the game) Big Green errors to give themselves a chance to pull out a come-from-behind win in extra innings. The Big Green, however, had different ideas on the night as Horstman relieved Schimmoeller on the mound for the eighth inning and struck out the side for his team. The Pirates got the first out in the Ottoville eighth.

Hohlbein got the inning started with a single. Up to the plate stepped sophomore Brandon Boecker. Boecker dug in and with the first pitch he saw, sent a towering 2-run walk-off home run to deep left-center field, giving the Big Green a hard-fought win. Big Green head coach Tony Castronova was very pleased with Boeckers gamewinner: Hes a good hitter and that smash was huge for us - Im really proud of him. Continental is a very scrappy team and they just never gave up tonight. Derek pitched a good game tonight, Alex came in and pitched a strong final inning and we were able to get some big hits when we needed them. On the other hand, we need to start making the routine plays on defense - four throwing errors nearly cost us the game tonight. The Big Green (2-3, 1-1 PCL) host Bluffton 5 p.m. today in a non-league game. The Pirates (1-4, 0-3 PCL) will host Kalida for another PCL game 5 p.m. Monday.

MIDDLE POINT Lincolnview took advantage of 10 Jefferson errors to score 11 unearned runs in a 13-1 rout of the Lady Wildcats Monday afternoon. It was the Northwest Conference opener for both teams, leaving the Lancers at 4-0 overall and 1-0 in the conference. Jefferson is 0-6 and 0-1. The home team pushed across four runs, one earned, in the bottom of the first inning without benefit of a ball out of the infield. The only hits of the inning came on a bunt by leftfielder Autumn Procter and a roller to the first-base side by second baseman Kaitlyn Brant. Three other Lancers reached base on errors. Lincolnview notched another unearned run in the second. Rightfielder Julia Thatcher struck out but reached when the third strike was dropped and the throw to first went awry. She stole second and third, then came in on a squeeze by Procter. It became 8-0 after three. The Lancers three runs (1 earned) in the third was started by a leadoff double to the base of the right-field fence by shortstop Bailey Neate, the first ball off a Lancer bat to reach the outfield. The other hit in that inning was a bouncer through the third/short hole by Thatcher. Two walks, two passed balls and two Wildcat errors also contributed. Lincolnview put the game into run-rule territory at 13-0 with five runs, one earned, in the fourth. The only hit in that inning was a high pop fly single to shallow left-center by catcher Lauren Calvert. Jefferson committed three more errors in that inning. Two walks, a hit batsman and three wild pitches also aided the Lancer cause.

Lancer hurler Ashley McClure cruised through the first four innings, no-hitting the visitors, while striking out five and walking one. Reliever Courtney Gorman came on to pitch the fifth. Jefferson touched her for a run on a walk to catcher Samantha Branham, a ground out by shortstop Kamie Pulford and a line single down the right-field line by leftfielder Kayla Kill. Calvert led Lincolnview hitters, going 1-for-2 with a run and three RBIs. Neate was 1-for-3 with a double, with two runs and an RBI. Procter, Brant and Thatcher had the other Lancer hits. The Wildcats Taylor Branham took the loss, although she deserved a much better fate. She yielded 13 runs, only two earned, and was touched for only five hits, striking out six and walking four. Both teams return to action 5 p.m. Thursday: Jefferson at home versus Paulding and Lincolnview at LCC.

Delphos oldest family business is closing

BY STACY TAFF DELPHOS After being in business for more than a century, Beckmanns Furniture is closing. Over the years, Beckmann is the one name thats remained constant on the storefront. It began as Jettinghoff and Beckmann on Main Street in 1906, when Vonderembse Furniture was bought out by partners Joe Jettinghoff and Andrew Beckmann, great-uncle of Joan (Beckmann) Patthoff, who currently owns the store with her husband Dennis. The business eventually moved into the old H.J. Wulfhorst building at 151 W. Second St., its current location. When Andrew Beckmann passed away in 1924, John Hughes purchased a third of the partnership and the business was briefly called Jettinghoff, Beckmann & Hughes. Hughes retired after a few years and it was back to its previous name. After the business got started, my grandfather Mark Beckmann got into it, too, around 1908, Joan said. Leonard, my father, got involved after he graduated in 1939. He served in WWII for a couple years and then came back. In January of 1950, the Jettinghoff-Beckmann partnership dissolved when Mark and Leonard Beckmann purchased the Jettinghoff interests. The business became known as Beckmanns Furniture, Floor Coverings and Draperies. Aside from the services implied in its moniker, the store offered a broad range of products. In the early years, they also sold things like sewing machines, baby carriages, beds, stoves and china, Dennis said. They also carried toys around Christmas in the lower level. You used to be able to come and put toys on lay-away and then Santa would deliver them to you. Leonard used to donate whatever was left over to the poor and he never really wanted anyone to know that. The store also offered ice boxes, kitchen cabinets, kitchenware, coal and wood ranges, brass beds and other goods. Beckmanns eventually expanded into the world of custom drapery stitch, when Patthoffs father bought out the fabric stock from Anthony Wegers dry goods store, where Patthoffs mother Betty (nee Kaverman) had worked. This was the beginning of Drapery Stitch, which started as a single business in the lower level of Beckmanns. Beckmanns has always been unique because we could finish a home for you, from flooring to furniture and window treatments to pictures and any other accessories you can think of, Joan said. She says she started helping out in the store at a young age. I had helped out in here as a kid, I would dust around the store, she said. I started when I was too short to dust the top of a chest and my dad would have to get it for me. As the years passed, Joan and her brothers Don, George and Phil each joined the family business in one way or another. My brothers now have their own Drapery Stitch branches, Don has one here in Delphos, George in Cleveland and Phil in Cincinnati, Joan said. George and Phil started their own and Don moved the one here out into another building. I came back to work here in 1983, then in 1989 Dennis and I purchased the business when dad retired. The Patthoffs, who were married in 1972, have three grown children; Eric, who lives in Cleveland and works at the Drapery Stitch there; Nick, who lives in Dallas and has a degree in Logistics; and Sarah, who lives in Richmond, VA and is working on a masters in business. All three helped out in the store as children, just as their mother did. They all worked here growing up, doing dusting and helping out, Joan said. The boys also worked See BECKMANNS, page 9

American expects flights to return to normal Life insurance coverage is worth something
By DAVID KOENIG The Associated Press DALLAS American Airlines is promising to run a near-normal operation today, and that would be just fine for the tens of thousands of passengers who were stranded by a mammoth technology meltdown at the nations third-biggest airline. On Tuesday, American and sister airline American Eagle canceled 970 flights and delayed at least 1,068 more by early evening, according to flight-tracking service That means American and Eagle canceled or delayed nearly two-thirds of their scheduled flights after they lost access to a computer system thats used for everything from issuing boarding passes to determining how much fuel to pump into the plane. It was a public-relations nightmare for American, which is preparing to merge with US Airways and become the worlds biggest carrier. Passengers took to social media sites to criticize the airline, which for hours could only apologize and say that it was trying to fix the problem. The man who will lead American in a few months, US Airways CEO Doug Parker, has said he would prefer to convert his planes and employees to Americans computer system rather than the other way around. US Airways declined to comment on whether Tuesdays breakdown would cause Parker to rethink his plans. The computer outage began snarling operations around midmorning. Eventually the Federal Aviation Administration issued a so-called ground stop for American Airlines jets around the country. Flights already in the air were allowed to continue to their destinations, but planes on the ground from coast to coast could not take off. And travelers could do little to get back in the air until the computer system was restored. By late afternoon, American resumed international flights and those from its major hub airports. It scrambled during the evening to put planes and crews in position to get off to a good start this morning. Despite the magnitude of todays disruption, we are pleased to report that we expect our operation to run normally with only a small number of flight cancellations today, said Andrea Huguely, a spokeswoman for American. She said American would add flights to accommodate stranded passengers. American blamed the outage on a loss of access to computer networks that are used for flight reservations and many other functions. Airlines commonly rely on such systems to track passengers and bags, monitor who boards planes, and update flight schedules and gate assignments. The computers are also used to file flight plans and tell employees which seats should be filled to ensure that the plane is properly balanced. DEAR BRUCE: My sonin-law worked in management at a textile company for 27 years before the company closed all its factories and moved overseas. During that time, my son-in-law paid into a $400,000 life insurance policy. Can he get back any cash value on this policy? It does not seem right for him to have lost all that money when it was through no fault of his own. Does he need to see a lawyer, or is this a done deal? -- M.G., via email DEAR M.G.: At the end of your note, you say that your son-in-law has lost all that money. He didnt lose as much as you might think. For 27 years, during the important part of his life when his family was young, your son-in-law had insurance. Mercifully, he is still living. But if he had died anytime in that 27 years, his family would have received a $400,000 tax-free payment -- not a bad thing. Whether the policy has any cash value is another matter, and whether he can continue the policy is still another matter. It may be that the policy is his or will become his and that he can continue to make the payments or take a lower net paid policy. He should be talking to his former employer, assuming it is still in business overseas or elsewhere. I know it seems unfair, and it may be that he has lost his rights because he has neglected to check into them. The only way to find out is to get on it. DEAR BRUCE: I read your column faithfully every week, and I respect your expertise. We live next door to a small mobile home on a property that has been trashed and abandoned for the last two years. Our son would like to purchase it, but the roads we have taken have led us nowhere. We started at the title company, then went to the courthouse. We found the property had a lien on it through the Department of Human Services, as the mother who owned it was on Social Security disability before she died, and it is now in the daughters name. We called DHS, which says it has nothing to do with it. We have contacted the daughter, who lives in another town, and she says it belongs to the county. The county says the property will be up for auction in about three years, but we need it now. So what can we do to purchase this little place? It has a $1,500 back sewage bill, and the back taxes


Smart Money
are about $2,000. It is filled with the last renters garbage, trucks, cars and other stuff. We dont have a lot of money to pay lawyers, etc., but we would love to clean up this place next to us and own it. -- C.C., via email DEAR C.C.: I understand your frustration. Part of the problem is the property has a very marginal value, and no one really wants to pursue it. If there were a large DHS lien, DHS would be happy to have the matter closed out. I know you dont have a ton of money for attorneys, but I really believe an attorney could clear this up for you in a short time. A letter from an attorney will get a lot more attention from any government agency than will a letter from you. You also should complain to the city about the trash, cars and trucks that will have to be cleaned up. Good luck. (Send questions to or to Smart Money, P.O. Box 7150, Hudson, FL 34674.

(Continued from page 1) course. Police officers made sure Leons hotel was safe, however. They had armed officers at every opening because we were at race headquarters. We had all the race results and people were in our hotel. There wasnt a way to get in or out. We were in the lobby for probably an hour or an hour-and-a-half. They wanted everybody to stay in the lobby and out of their rooms until they were able to sweep the building, Leon recalled. To make matters even more unnerving, a member of Leons group was unaccounted for. I had a friend who I ran with at Ohio University. There was one person in our group who wasnt accounted for and it was him. We knew he would be (finishing the race) about that time (that the bombs went off), just because of his other times, he said. Fortunately, Leons friend was one of the 17,000 runners, out of the 23,000-run-


ner field, who finished before the bombings. There was some tension before we could find out that he was OK. He probably finished 10 minutes earlier and he had just picked up his bag. He was maybe a block-and-a-half away when he heard everything, he said. Despite being so close to the action, Leon explained that he learned of the happenings just like most of the nation through the television, due to the lockdown. Fortunately, Leon, who resides in Eugene, Ore., made it through everything safe, but admitted it may take some time for the actions of the day to sink in. Its pretty hard to process right now, because it could have happened at any time. My friends were out watching in front of the marathon sports store where this happened. They were right there. Its kind of hard to process, really, at this point It will be nice to get back to Eugene and sleep in my own bed, thats for sure, he added.

on deliveries and things like that. The decision to sell a business so steeped in family history was a bittersweet one for the Patthoffs, who have overseen the buildings metamorphosis from a single story to three stories and have renovated it multiple times over the years, retaining original wood and brickwork and even the tin ceilings. They cited the changing economy and a desire to spend more time with family as their reasons for closing. The business has evolved over the years as the economy has evolved, Dennis

becoming available to move to the tanks. Part of the project will also include separating the clearwells so they can be used individually as well. This will also make it possible to put more water into the tanks in a shorter period of time. Cass Street residents will also see their water improve in the near future. Berquist announced he attended a preconstruction meeting last week and All Purpose Contracting, Inc., the contractor for the project, will start as soon as an inserta valve is obtained. The work is expected to take 3-4 days. The project bid came in at $34,828, nearly $10,000 under the projected project cost. Trash along Elida Road entering the Delphos city limits was discussed. Berquist said that while the property is not owned by

the city, it is the first thing people see when entering the municipality from that direction. The property was rated a 5 by the county and thats the worst condition possible, Berquist said. We have sent letters to the businesses and restaurants in that area to be better stewards of the dumpsters and weve found they have others using them who are not supposed to and leaving them open. Berquist suggested the city ask the Allen County Sheriffs Office to send over several inmates to pick up trash as long as the property owner is agreeable. Councilman Rick Hanser said the Boy Scouts had cleaned the area in the past but it is a high-traffic area and that was no longer a viable option. People use those business and restaurant dumpsters as their own personal dumps, Hanser said. That
Briana Mason and Austin Smith; Elida High SchoolNicholas Bader, Lauren Greeley, Emily Schaefer, Ericka Smith. The board passed resolutions honoring the following: National Teacher Appreciation Week (May 5-11), Bus Driver Appreciation Day (May 6), National Administrative Professionals Week (April 21-27), School Library Media Month (April), National Nurses Week (May 6-12) and Alcohol Awareness Month (April). The board accepted the resignations of Dennis Thompson (high school teacher, effective May 28 for retirement purposes) and Charlie Powell (custodian, effective March 29), and approved an agenda item recommending the non-renewal of contracts for three certified employees and 35 supplemental employees. The following individuals were approved for employment: Trey Bowman (summer employee), Trent Long (summer employee), Patricia Woodruff (non-certified, subst. bus driver) and Miranda Shingledecker agreements. The fallout from this decision is still unknown at this time. However, more may be known as the developer of the project by BP Wind, Roger Brown, is due to meet with the commissioners on Thursday afternoon. The status of that project is unknown due to the desire of BP to sell off its wind energy holdings.

area looks terrible and even after it has been cleaned it only takes a few days for it to start looking bad again. Councilman Jim Fortener agreed. I am ashamed. Everyone drives down that road and just flings stuff out their windows. We need to find some solution, Fortener said. I know locking the dumpsters will be a pain for the owners, especially those who use them more than once a day. Council also approved on emergency measure an ordinance approving the minutes of the Allen County Tax Incentive Review Council so tax abatement agreements for Vanamatic (final year) and K&M Tire/Langhals Enterprises LLC (second year) can be continued. The ordinance will be passed along to the Allen County Commissioners, who will give the final approval on the abatements.

The board approved a 3-year renewal of the administrative contract for Principal Faith Cummings as well as 29 certified contract renewals and 13 non-certified.


said. Peoples buying habits have changed as well. With three furniture stores in one town, you have to find your niche. Beckmanns sort of settled into the upper-middle niche, which can be a good thing and a bad thing. Our kids have all moved away and for someone else to take over the business it takes a lot of money and these days, banks just dont really want to lend anything because of the risk involved. Also, wed like to travel more. We have two grandkids in Cleveland and two in Dallas and we would like to see them more, Joan added. In the meantime, well be here part-time until we get rid

of inventory and Ill still be doing window treatments. Both are grateful to the community for over a century of business and wish the buildings future owners well. We look forward to giving someone else a chance to use this beautiful building, Dennis said. Its a wonderful building and it takes a lot of love to take care of it. We would just like to say thank you to all our customers from over the years, for their support and for shopping with us. Well miss them, Joan said. Its been a pleasure being in business here in Delphos; its a great town.

excited about where were going with that group, Treasurer Joel Parker said. We had about double the turnout I expected and we ended up raising around $10,000, which is incredible for an afternoon of fun. During the meeting, a resolution was passed for the high school tennis courts to be named Denny Schwinnen Tennis Courts, after Elida Tennis Coach Denny Schwinnen, who has taught in the district for 40 years, coached boys tennis in the district for 36 years and girls tennis for 13 years. He was WBL Coach of the Year 14 times and held a career record of 455-167 in boys tennis and 111-97 in girls tennis. He has won the Ohio Tennis Coaches Association Integrity Award and was inducted into the Ohio Tennis Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2010. Students of the month for April are: Elida ElementaryCaitlyn Henderson, Brady Kirk, Ben Osmon; Elida Middle School- Alexis Bowman, Darren Harris,

saturated with water, Smith thought the crew should start with the trees they can reach from the asphalt. Smith addressed the wood that will remain in the park after the trees are felled. Council agreed the best plan was to leave it in piles for a week to 10 days and let residents pick up what they wanted of it before loading and moving it out of the park. Siefker added the annual spring park cleanup has been postponed due to the weather. He would like to do the mulching and all other work at one time. The grass is too wet to be walked on. I told the Cub Scouts its postponed until further notice, Siefker said. Council approved to seven yard of mulch for $210, with the booster account. Siefker thought the best way to spread the mulch would be to use a trailer and travel from spot to spot to get it done faster. Removal and replacement of shingles on the parks two shelterhouses is a project Chad Wurst, along with the local Boy Scout Troop, will undertake this spring. Wurst will supply the labor and he is looking for material donations. Were asking council to approve [paying for] materials, Siefker stated. Smith asked about a dumpster for the project and thought that Real Waste may pick that cost up for the community. Smith said that the shingles could be charged at Vetters. He also wanted to be sure the shingles would be similar in color to the ones on the concession stand. Smith announced that Jason Dickman will head up the grounds department at the park. In an effort to better communicate, Smith would like to share emails containing work that has been completed at the park from Dickman with Wrasman, who will focus on usual things. Ill meet with Ted on Monday morn-

ings and pass it along to him, Smith said. Council discussed side street and highway closure for Fort Fest in August. Smith wants to make all residents aware in advance so they may make arrangements to move their vehicles, if need be. State Route 190 and 189 closures have to be approved by the State. Council also discussed attractions and events tentatively planned for Fort Fest, including re-enactments with Native Americans and a Martial Arts Exhibition. In conjunction with the festival, Marge Von Sossan would like to integrate the Purple Heart/Military theme with a Veterans Mass. Smith also addressed upcoming road maintenance work by showing council members a color-coded plan of the villages streets that identified the streets that have not been sealed in 5-7 years and some of them Elm, Oak, John Kennedy Dr. and High are in really bad shape. Council member Walt Pitney said that Second Street is really bad. Smith stated that Second and Main streets need crack sealed. I just wanted to show you [council members] what Ive been working on, Smith stated. I wanted council to be aware. Jake braking and changing the villages signage was the next topic of discussion. Smith reported that truck drivers feel the law does not apply to them since they do not have Jake Brakes, a brand-name brake, on their trucks. Smith is requesting to change the signs from No Jake Braking to No Engine Brake. Council also discussed the Second Street reconstruction project, which is in the final contract approval stage. Smith feels the $6,860 for the Poggemeyer Design Group contract for engineering costs is too much and wants Village Solicitor Bill Wildenhause to comb through it and strike out everything he does not like.

It may sound cheesy, but thats the motto I live by, and its one of the reasons I believe so strongly in the need to prevent and reduce tobacco use among teens and kids. My passion for tobaccouse prevention started when I saw the harm that tobacco use caused my older sister. She started smoking at age 13 and ended up with an addiction that spiraled out of control, in many ways taking her childhood with it. Every year, tobacco kills more than 400,000 Americans, and the vast majority started smoking as children. Kids are overwhelmed with pressure to smoke, from tobacco industry marketing, their peers, movies and other sources. But we have the power within ourselves to win the fight against tobacco, and I am proud to advocate

FBI appeals for help solving Boston marathon bombings

BY JAY LINDSAY and EILEEN SULLIVAN BOSTON (AP) A bomber may have been seen amid the Boston Marathon revelers carrying an unusually heavy nylon bag, weighed down with shrapnel-packed explosives, the FBI has suggested. Or perhaps someone heard something beforehand as a culprit tested explosives or expressed an interest in attacking the race. Law enforcement agencies pleaded Tuesday for the public to come forward with photos, videos or any information that might help them solve the twin bombings that killed three people and wounded more than 170 a day earlier. Investigators circulated information about the bombs, which involved kitchen pressure cookers packed with explosives, nails and other lethal shrapnel but the FBI said nobody had claimed responsibility. Someone knows who did this, Richard DesLauriers, FBI agent in charge in Boston, said at a news conference where he detailed the type of clues a bomber might have left. Importantly, the person who did this is someones friend, neighbor, coworker or relative. President Barack Obama branded the attack an act of terrorism but said officials dont know whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization, foreign or domestic, or was the act of a malevolent individual. Obama plans to attend an interfaith service Thursday in the victims honor in Boston. Scores of victims of the Boston bombing remained in hospitals, many with grievous injuries. Doctors who treated the wounded corroborated reports that the bombs were packed with shrapnel intended to cause mayhem. A 9-year-old girl and 10-yearold boy were among 17 victims listed in critical condition. An intelligence bulletin issued to law enforcement includes a picture of a mangled pressure cooker and a torn black bag that the FBI said were part of a bomb that exploded during the marathon. DesLauriers said cooperation from the community will play a key role in the investigation. He said the range of suspects remained wide open, but by midday Tuesday more than 2,000 tips had been received. The bombs exploded 10 or more seconds apart, tearing off victims limbs and spattering streets with blood. The blasts near the finish line instantly turned the festive race into a hellish scene of

Britains Iron Lady laid to rest with full pomp

BY CASSANDRA VINOGRAD and JILL LAWLESS LONDON (AP) Margaret Thatcher, Britains Iron Lady, was laid to rest today with a level of pomp and protest reflecting her status as a commanding, polarizing political figure. Queen Elizabeth II, prime ministers and dignitaries from 170 countries were among the mourners at St. Pauls Cathedral, where Bishop of London Richard Chartres spoke of the strong feelings the former prime minister still evokes 23 years after leaving office. The storm of conflicting opinions centers on the Mrs. Thatcher who became a symbolic figure even an -ism, he said. Today the remains of the real Margaret Hilda Thatcher are here at her funeral service. More than 700 soldiers, sailors and air force personnel lined the route taken by Thatchers coffin to the cathedral and around 4,000 police officers were on duty. Security was stepped up after Mondays bombings at the Boston Marathon. Spectators lining the route broke into applause and scattered boos as the carriage passed by, escorted by young soldiers, sailors and airmen. Some clearly disagreed with the bishops exhortation to leave politics at home. Some staged silent protests by turning their backs on Thatchers coffin. One man held a banner declaring Rest in shame. Arguments also broke out in the crowd along the route between Thatcher supporters and opponents. Guests inside the cathedral included Thatchers political colleagues and rivals and her successors as prime minister John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron. Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and former Vice President Dick Cheney were among the American dignitaries, while figures from Thatchers era included F.W. de Klerk, the

confusion, horror and heroics. The blasts killed 8-year-old Martin Richard, of Boston, and 29-year-old Krystle Campbell, of Medford. The Shenyang Evening News, a state-run Chinese newspaper, identified the third victim as Lu Lingzi. She was a graduate student at Boston University. At Massachusetts General Hospital, all four amputations performed there were above the knee, with no hope of saving more of the legs, said Dr. George Velmahos, chief of trauma surgery. It wasnt a hard decision to make, he said. We just completed the ugly job that the bomb did. Investigators said they have not yet determined what was used to set off the explosives. Boston police and firefighter unions announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to arrests.

Answers to Mondays questions: Botox was called Oculinum when it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1989. At the time, the drug was being used to treat crossed eyes and uncontrollable blinking. The name was changed in 1991.

Todays questions: What highly-regarded 1962 film the winner of seven Oscars has no female speaking parts? What city was the first in the U.S. to have a subway? Answers in Thursdays Herald. Todays joke: When a woman got married she put a shoebox in the closet and told her husband not to open it. After over 50 years of marriage she was dying and told him to open the box. When he opened it there were 2 doilies and $85,000. He ask why this was in the box. She replied. When I got married my mother told me to crochet a doily every time I got mad at you. He smiled thinking she was only mad twice and ask what the $85,000 was. Thats the money from selling the doilies, she replied.

last apartheid-era leader of South Africa; former Polish President Lech Walesa; exCanadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and entertainers including Dynasty star Joan Collins, singer Shirley Bassey and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. The ceremony was traditional, dignified and very British. Mourners entered to music by British composers including Edward Elgar and Ralph Vaughan Williams, and the service featured hymns and readings chosen by Thatcher, who grew up as a grocers daughter in a hard-working Methodist household. The dean of St. Pauls, David Ison, recalled her courage, her steadfastness and her resolve to accomplish what she believed to be right for the common good. Afterwards, a crowd gathered outside cheered and applauded as the coffin was carried out to the half-muffled peal of the cathedral bells. Thatcher will be cremated, in keeping with her wishes. The woman nicknamed the Iron Lady transformed Britain during her 11-year tenure from 1979 to 1990, privatizing state industries, deregulating the economy, and causing upheaval whose impact is still felt. She died on April 8 at age 87. Thatcher was given a ceremonial funeral with military honors not officially a state funeral, which requires a vote in Parliament but proceedings that featured the same level of pomp and honor afforded Princess Diana in 1997 and the Queen Mother Elizabeth in 2002.
