Ottoville Council explores storm sewer options
BY STEPHANIE GROVES sgroves@delphosherald.com OTTOVILLE — Village council had a full agenda addressing a new park project, razing of the Wannemacher house, updates on the Auglaize Street project and selling the old village truck and plow. The Mayor’s Report included a new park tree project headed by Nick Rode in conjunction with the Boy Scouts and Eagle Scouts to generate donations from families honoring family members. The trees will be marked with plaques indicating the family and members contributing to the planting. The tree planting will take place in the fall. “Now, he [Rode] is getting prices together and then lay it out later,” Mayor Ron Miller detailed. “The trees we’re looking at is more for height and shade.” Street Supervisor Barry Koester reported on the Wannemacher house, which will be razed in the near future. He said that Wednesday the asbestos shingles will be removed and after that, the power company will take the

Library presents ‘Edible and Medicinal Plants’
BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — When you find yourself stranded in the wild, knowing the difference between a nutritious wild plant and a poisonous one,

Jefferson High School’s will present the musical “Flapper” at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the Jefferson Middle School auditorium. Celebrate the ‘Roaring 20s’ with them and meet Polly Pepper, a young flapper who really knows how to live in the time of Stutz Bearcat automobiles, Ziegfield girls, raccoon coats, ukuleles, beauty contests, goldfish swallowers and gangsters. Polly’s about to turn 18 and will inherit a fabulous diamond necklace called the “Ice Garden.” She’s planning a madcap birthday party and inviting all her pals. However, with a friend like Susan Stuyvesant-Fish, she doesn’t need any enemies. Polly’s new boyfriend, Buck Wayne, wouldn’t miss the birthday bash for anything, even if he has to land his private plane on the lawn of the polo grounds. But there’s trouble ahead. Mobsters are planning to grab the necklace. Portraying characters from the colorful play are cast members, from left, Claire Thompson, Wes Roby and Jordan Barclay. Tickets for the show are $6.

power out of the building. Koester also spoke with council about Asphalt System’s pricing the materials and labor to seal Auglaize Street once the construction is complete. The cost will be $3,200. Other streets are in need of maintenance or repair. Church Street has a 200-foot-long crack and is still under the 3-year warranty and the company will take care of the repair. The company charges 78 cents per square foot. “Fourth and Clay have held up real well coming up on 6 years,” Koester reported. Last week, Miller and Brian Goubeaux of Choice One Engineering discussed the Auglaize Street reconstruction project and addressed rectifying drainage problems in the immediate area of construction. This includes redirecting the run-off with outlets and getting the water back to the river or creating a catch basin to absorb the overages. In the meeting last week, the discussion turned to options for redirecting the storm sewer lines out to State Route 224. See OTTOVILLE, page 12

Answers to Monday’s questions: The Cayman golf ball that was designed for golf great Jack Nicklaus in 1984 weighed only 24 grams instead of the standard 45 grams and has a hard plastic shell with pimples instead of the usual golf ball dimples. These design changes created a slower ball that traveled half as far as a standard ball, which made it perfect for the small nine-hole course Nicklaus had been hired to build on tiny Grand Cayman Island. French writer Alexander Dumas traded hundreds of volumes of his work for a lifetime supply of cantaloupe. Dumas was to be paid an “annuity” of 12 cantaloupes every summer for life. He died six years (72 melons) later. Today’s questions: What is the natural source of the pearl essence that gives many lipsticks and nail polishes their lustrous appearance? What off-screen role did performers Gwen Verdon and Carol Haney have in the 1952 film classic Singin’ in the Rain? Answers in Thursday’s Herald.

Today’s joke: A young man was walking through a supermarket to pick up a few things when he noticed an old lady following him around. Thinking nothing of it, he ignored her and continued on. Finally he went to the checkout line, but she got in front of him. “Pardon me,” she said, “I’m sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. It’s just that you look just like my son, who just died recently.” “I’m very sorry,” replied the young man, “is there anything I can do for you?” “Yes,” she said, “As I’m leaving, can you say ‘Good bye, Mother’? It would make me feel so much better.” “Sure,” answered the young man. As the old woman was leaving, he called out, “Goodbye, Mother!” As he stepped up to the checkout counter, he saw that his total was $127.50. “How can that be?” He asked, “I only purchased a few things!” “Your mother said that you would pay for her,” said the clerk.

BOSTON — Lawmakers are asking tough questions about how the government tracked suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev when he traveled to Russia last year, renewing criticism from after the Sept. 11 attacks that failure to share intelligence may have contributed to last week’s deadly assault. Following a closed-door briefing on Capitol Hill with the FBI and other law enforcement officials on Tuesday, Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said it doesn’t appear yet that anyone “dropped the ball.” But he said he was asking all the federal agencies for more information about who knew what about the suspect. “There still seem to be serious problems with sharing information, including critical investigative information ... not only among agencies but also within the same agency in one case,” said committee member Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. Lawmakers intensified their scrutiny as funerals were held Tuesday for an 8-yearold boy killed in the bombings and a campus police officer who authorities said was shot by Tsarnaev and his younger brother days later. A memorial service for the officer, 26-yearold Sean Collier, is scheduled today. Vice President Joe Biden is expected to speak.

Also today, Boylston Street, where the blasts occurred, reopened to the public after being closed since the bombings. While family said that the older Tsarnaev had been influenced by a Muslim convert to follow a strict type of Islam, brother 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev remained hospitalized after days of questioning over his role in the attacks. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed in a shootout with police last week. Conflicting stories appeared to emerge about which agencies knew about Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s six-month trip to Russia last year how they handled it. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told the Senate Judiciary Committee on immigration legislation that her agency knew about Tsarnaev’s journey to his homeland. But Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said the FBI “told me they had no knowledge of him leaving or coming back.” Information-sharing failures between agencies prompted an overhaul of the U.S. intelligence system after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Meanwhile, evidence mounted that Tsarnaev had embraced a radical, anti-American strain of Islam. Family members blamed the influence of a Muslim convert, known only to the family as Misha, for steering him toward a strict type of Islam. “Somehow, he just took his brain,” said Tamerlan’s uncle, Ruslan Tsarni of Montgomery See BOMB, page 12

Thank you to everyone who purchased mulch in support of the successful postprom fundraiser Delphos St. John’s Junior Class Mulch Sale. An impressive 49 of the 52 junior students worked a cold and windy weekend to deliver over 5,000 bags of mulch. In addition, the mulch sale would not have been a success without the help of 36 parents lending their time, talents and resources to help organize and carry out this project. Mr. Huysman, St. John’s staff and Eric Fritz also deserve a big thanks for their assistance with this fundraiser. St. John’s Junior students are truly blessed to have the support of family, school and community. Sincerely, 2013 Delphos St. John’s Mulch Sale Committee

Youth hunters find success during Ohio Amish couple sue 2013 Youth Wild Turkey Season over child’s rape at agency
Information submitted COLUMBUS — Many young hunters found success during Ohio’s 2013 youth spring wild turkey season after 1,784 birds were harvested, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Hunters age 17 and under were eligible to participate in the two-day season Saturday and Sunday. The total harvest was a 9 percent increase from 2012, when 1,632 wild turkeys were checked. The counties that reported the most checked wild turkeys during the 2013 youth spring season were: Monroe (56), Muskingum (54), Ashtabula (52), Jefferson (52), Coshocton (51), Belmont (49), Knox (48), Guernsey (48), Tuscarawas (48) and Washington (47). All participants were required to possess a valid Ohio youth hunting license and youth spring turkey permit, and must have been accompanied by a non-hunting adult. The youth turkey season was open statewide with the exception of Lake La Su An State Wildlife Area in Williams County, which required a special hunting permit. The youth spring turkey season is one of four special youth-only hunting seasons designed by the ODNR Division of Wildlife to offer a safe and productive early hunting experience for young hunters. Special seasons are also set aside for upland game, white-tailed deer and waterfowl hunting opportunities. The spring turkey season begins Monday, April 22, and closes Sunday, May 19. The spring turkey season is open statewide except for Lake La Su An Wildlife Area. Find more information in the 2012-2013 Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations, available where licenses are sold, and at wildohio.com. Ohio’s first modern day wild turkey season opened in 1966 in nine counties, and hunters checked 12 birds. The total number of harvested turkeys topped 1,000 for the first time in 1984. Turkey hunting was opened statewide in 2000. Watch Governor John Kasich and ODNR Director James Zehringer share a message to hunters for the start of wild turkey season here: http://bit.ly/ WildTurkey HuntingWelcome/. ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr. gov.

CINCINNATI (AP) — University of Cincinnati President Santa Ono is recommending that trustees freeze the tuition rate for students from Ohio. Ono told trustees on Tuesday that he’ll refuse a salary increase or bonus for two years. He also suggested selling the condominium used as the residence of two previous school presidents to establish a scholarship fund. The newly installed leader says the university needs to convey its commitment to accessibility and affordability for students. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the in-state tuition rate is just under $10,800 at the university’s main campus. The board is expected to vote on the in-state tuition freeze at its June meeting.

POWELL (AP) — The Columbus Zoo’s recent additions include a monkey named after a quirky scientist character on the CBS comedy “The Big Bang Theory.” The colobus monkey named Dr. Sheldon Cooper was born March 3. A spokeswoman says staff in that zoo area pick names based on themes and made the TV show the latest one because they’re fans. She says keepers joke it’s too soon to tell whether the monkey will live up to his namesake’s brilliance. It was the first of four recent births for the zoo’s African forest exhibits. Two red river hogs were born April 12. The month began with the birth of a black duiker (DEYE’-kur), which is a four-legged, forest-dwelling animal. It is part of the antelope family and is found in parts of Africa.

WARREN (AP) — An Amish couple has sued a county children’s services agency in northeast Ohio, claiming workers there are responsible for their adopted child being raped by its biological parents during a partially unsupervised visit. The federal lawsuit was filed this month on behalf of a couple who live in West Farmington, north of Youngstown. They were referred to in the lawsuit only as Jane Doe and John Doe. The action seeks $3 million in damages. The suit claims Trumbull County Children Services and three of its employees are responsible for the decision to allow the infant girl partially unsupervised visits with her biological parents starting in January 2011.

The Next Generation

Vantage team visits Haiti
BY STACI KAUFMAN Vantage superintendent The 2013 Haiti team returned safely a few days ago, and accomplished much good work in the past week. The Vantage Interact Club, affiliated with the Van Wert Rotary Club, sponsors a carpentry program in the mountain village of Borde, Haiti. Vantage students raise funds throughout the school year to pay the carpentry teacher’s salary ($100 per month) and furnish supplies and hand tools for the students. The furniture made by the carpentry program is sold in Cap Haitien, Haiti, and the funds are returned to the customer service account to buy more supplies. Social studies teacher Peg Bollenbacher, the club’s advisor, has traveled to Haiti annually for 10 years. She will retire this year and is turning over the Interact Club to science teacher Matthew Miller. Bollenbacher will continue to return to Haiti annually on her own, as she has a deep bond with the local Haitians involved in our project. This was my first trip to Haiti, as it was for Miller. Seeing the carpentry school and surrounding facilities, which include another school

All are cinder block buildings with holes to let in light and air. Vantage will continue to target resources to meet their instructional needs. As incoming president of Van Wert Rotary, my service project will likely be constructing a green structure, or Earthship, (google Earthship Haiti) to supply solar power and sanitized water to some degree. Several of Ohio’s Rotary club’s incoming presidents have indicated possible interest in helping accomplish this important goal. As I expected prior to going to Haiti, words cannot express what I saw and experienced during the seven days I was there. I have memories for a lifetime, a lot of photos of the culture and people, and a renewed commitment to our Interact Club’s project in Haiti.

To commemorate Earth Day on April 22, Lima Kiwanis distributed Spruce and Dogwood saplings to first- and third-grade students at St. John’s Elementary School last week. The students are prompted to plant the trees (with their parent’s help) on their property. Front row from left are; Kobe O’Connor, Connor Baldauf and Elizabeth Garrett; back row, Ella Wilson, Gaige Horton and Kailyn Dienstberger.

Prancer BY LOVINA EICHER It is windy and looks like rain. This whole week seems to have been rainy and stormy. Yesterday we managed to get half of our laundry dried before the rain came. This morning, I went to a few local Amish garage sales. I was able to find a few shirts for son Benjamin. He outgrew most of his shirts and needs some new ones very badly. I figure these shirts will help until I get a few more sewn for him. It saved me a few hours of sewing to go to the sales. Also found a few dresses for the girls they should be able to wear. Usually, one of the four older girls can wear one of the dresses when I guess on the size. Susan is the tallest of the four girls and Verena is the shortest so they are almost stair-steps in the length but not in the order of their ages. Susan has finished her job with babysitting. She babysat for a tax accountant and now that tax rush is over she won’t need her as often. I am so glad for her help here at home. Spring work is coming along and also gardening. We still only have the potatoes planted that Joe put out two weeks ago. Joe is off work today and tomorrow. He plans to smoke 100 pounds of summer sausage for Jacob and Emma. We want to go there tonight to help them package the sausage and bring it home. We had our first meal of dandelion greens this week. That was a treat again for me. Most of our children don’t care for dandelions. Joseph seems to like them. I made a sour cream with Miracle Whip salad dressing, vinegar, and milk and pour over the dandelion greens with diced cooked eggs.

We like to eat this on top of steamed potatoes. Along with that we usually like bacon, side pork or fresh ham from our hogs. Joe grilled some of the side pork from our hogs and we really like it. How thankful we are to have such a wide variety of meat in the freezer. God has been good to us in so many ways. Do we thank him enough for our blessings? Minnie’s little foal is doing well and it is as lively as ever. In my last letter I said it was a filly, but it is not, it is a colt. The children called him Prancer. He prances around a lot which is why they decided on that name. Some of the children wanted to call him Bambi or Curious George. Curious George because he is curious and sticks his nose in the chicken fence until one of the chickens pecks Kevin Wieging from Kangaroo Cave receives a Rotary at his nose. mug from Rotarian Erin Roberts.

Pirates run-rule Lady Wildcats

By JIM METCALFE

DELPHOS — Continental’s fast-pitch softball crew rode the 2-hitter by Makenna Scott to an 11-1 non-league triumph over Jefferson on a windy and wet Tuesday afternoon at Lady Wildcat Field. Scott went the distance in her first pitching effort of the season (1-0; 5 innings, 1 earned run, 6 bases-on-balls, 4 strikeouts). Jefferson’s Hannah Sensibaugh lost her first varsity outing of 2012-13 (0-1; 2 IPs, 6 hits, 9 runs, 7 earned, 4 BBS. 2 Ks). “For her first varsity game, she did fine overall. It’s hard to really get a rhythm throwing indoors,” Jefferson coach Josiah Stober said. “She actually got better from the first to the second inning and as she gets more innings, she will continue to improve.” For Continental coach Jordan Streicher, he was also pleased with Scott’s effort. “She had a few too many walks but generally, she threw the pitches we called and where we called them,” he explained. “She was in the strike zone most of the day. She will also get nothing but better as she gains innings.” The Pirates (6-3) got on board in the top of the first with one out. Scott (2 runs) and Taylor Williamson (2 runs, 2 runs batted in) got aboard via errors and Leva Weller walked. A wild pitch plated Scott and a bounceout to second by Sara Deken scored Williamson for a 2-0 edge. Sarah Thitoff walked to start the home half but was left stranded. The Pirates made it 9-0 in the top of the second. Krystle Prowant walked. An out later, she moved up on a wild pitch and to third on a liner to left Erica Fitzwater, who took second on the throw. Alex Quigley walked to juice the bases and a wild pitch scored Prowant. Scott walked and Williamson singled, scoring Fitzwater and Quigley and putting runners on the corners. Both scored as Weller clubbed a double down the left-field line, taking third on an error. She scored on an infield hit to short by Deken. Sloane Zachrich blooped a hit between the pitcher and second baseman and Prowant doubled off the fence in left to score courtesy runner Vanessa Koppenhofer for the 9-0 edge. Kiana Warnement fanned and on the play, Zachrich tried to score and was tagged out at home by Samantha Branham, who was injured and had to leave the game. The Wildcats (0-7) tried to

Redskins rout Jays in 6 innings ST. HENRY — The St. John’s baseball team was held to two hits Tuesday night by St. Henry’s Alex Post as the host Redskins compiled 11 an 11-1 Midwest Athletic Conference rout in six innings at the Wally E. Post Athletic Complex. Troy Warnecke took the loss for the Blue Jays (3-7, 0-2 MAC). He had the only run batted in. Curtis Geise and Ryan Buescher had the hits. Post struck out seven for the Redskins (9-2, 3-0 MAC). St. John’s visits Bath 5 p.m. tonight (weather permitting).

rally in the home half. Jessica Pimpas beat out an infield hit off the pitcher and Kamie Pulford walked. On a strikeout, a passed ball allowed the runners to advance. Kimber Kill bounced to pitcher, who threw home to nail Pimpas. After Kayla Kill walked to load the bases, Thitoff bounced out to end the threat. With Taylor Branham on in relief in the top of the third and one out in the visitor third, Quigley beat out and infield hit, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored as Scott laid down a suicide squeeze for a 10-0 edge. Jefferson again challenged in the third with leadoff walks to Sensibaugh (stole second) and Taylor Branham and a sacrifice by Sophie Wilson. However, a bounceout and foul-out kept Jefferson off the scoreboard. Continental tacked on its final tally to start the fourth — with a mist starting to fall — on a misplayed grounder by Weller, a passed ball, a wild pitch and a groundout by Deken. Fallon Van Dyke walked to start the Delphos fourth and an out later, advanced on a groundout by Kayla Kill. However, she was tagged out by shortstop Williamson on a Thitoff bouncer there. The Red and White got its only run in the fifth. Sensibaugh singled to right, stole second, took third on a wild pitch and scored on T. Branham’s fly ball to center. “Our approach at the plate was much better today than the day before. We didn’t hit the ball well but we showed more patience,” Stober

added. “Defensively, we went from a lot of mistakes to only a couple errors today. Every game is a chance to learn more and get more teaching in between innings and games.” Streicher figured the offense just continued a trend this spring. “We have been putting up good numbers all spring,” he added. “We’re putting the ball in play and getting good production up and down the lineup. Defensively, we have four seniors and they are well organized out there.” Jefferson hosts Allen East 5 p.m. Thursday; Continental visits Columbus Grove 5 p.m. Friday.

——Grove runs winning streak to 8 By DAVE BONINSEGNA The Delphos Herald COLUMBUS GROVE — The Columbus Grove baseball team was riding a 7-game winning streak since dropping their first game of the season. Tuesday night, the Bulldogs extended that to eight with a 11-1 victory over the Fort Jennings Musketeers. The Bulldogs used a combination of strong pitching and hitting to run-rule their Putnam County League foe. Grove put up four runs in the third and fourth innings and scored in every frame in the shortened contest. Trey Roney went 2-for-3 with an RBI, while Brandon Benroth celebrated his birthday with a 2-for 4-performance, knocking in a pair. Alex Vetter was 2-for-2 for the Musketeers. Blake Hoffman led off the game with a double, moved to third on a wild pitch and came around to score on a Benroth fly to left. The ’Dogs added another

run in the second when Kody Griffith reached on an error, then scored on a Trent Vorst single, making it a 2-0 game. Columbus Grove pitcher Josh Verhoff faced the mininum number of batters in the first three innings. He gave up a walk to Dylan Van Loo in the first but was caught stealing; Vetter singled in the second but Ryan Rau hit into a 6-4-3 double play to end the second inning. The Bulldogs sent nine batters to the plate in their half of the third frame, with four crossing the plate. Matt Jay walked, followed by a Roney single. Brady Shafer, Verhoff and Trent Vorst (2-for-3, 2 RBIs) all had base hits, with Verhoff and Vorst knocking in runs as the hosts had a 6-0 advantage. Fort Jennings threatened in the top of the fourth. Jared Hoersten drew a 2-out walk and Kurt Warnecke followed with a single. It looked as if the Musketeers were going to dent the plate when Vetter singled to center but a strong throw by Hoffman to Jay cut down Hoersten at the plate to See GROVE, page 8

By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — St. John’s grabbed both sides of its track and field tri-meet with Fort Jennings and Ottoville on a windy Tuesday evening at the Delphos Community Track. The Blue Jay boys downed the Big Green and Musketeers 92-56-25, while the Lady Jays defeated the Lady Musketeers and Lady Green 75-52-45. “It was a semi-good day to run today,” quipped St. John’s boys coach Dr. Jay DeWitt. “Overall, this spring has not been good. Today wasn’t too bad but even then, it was windy. I’ve coached for 10 years and this has been the worst spring. Because of the lack of quality practice time outdoors, we are treating every meet like a glorified practice. We try to do both: compete and work on things we really haven’t been able to in practice. It’s frustrating but the kids have worked hard and done their best.” Lady Jay coach Dave Desenberg echoed that assessment. “All you can ask of your people is to give 100 percent and get better. We did that today and that’s a positive; plus, at this time of year, it’s about coming out of every meet relatively healthy, which we are,” he explained. “I have coached in this sport for 35 years and I can only remember one or two years that were like this. The girls are doing everything we ask and that’s all you can do.” Lady Green head coach Vaughn Horstman is in an even more interesting predicament. “We had the long run in girls basketball, so basically we are three weeks behind: we had the extra two weeks to begin with and I give the girls the mandatory week off between seasons,” he explained. “For me, the weather doesn’t really affect how we train but we have had to adjust how we do it this year; we’re just behind everyone right now. However, we are showing signs of catching up. We don’t have the numbers this year, which hurts us in the meets, but I’m hoping that will be taken care if in the next couple of years.” His Ottoville counterpart, Ryan Horstman, doesn’t quite have the answers he’d like. “That’s a good question; we really don’t know where we stand at this point overall,” he explained. “We do have a couple of answers in a couple of events. Colin Bendele has done well in the throws and likely will end up in the 400. Our senior pole-vaulters have also done well despite the weather: Anthony Eickholt has jumped 12-0 this year and Dylan Klima and Logan Kortokrax have gone 11-0. Logan also high-jumped 5-8 today.” Fort Jennings coach Kevin Horstman takes it all in stride. “You do the best we can and the kids have adjusted well. They do what we can do, whether practice or meets,” he said. “Any time you can compete is a plus, no matter the weather. You know that is the nature of the time of year and the sport. We’ve talked to the kids about adopting a tough mindset: it doesn’t matter what the weather is; you just go out and compete, whether it’s 30 degrees — like Friday night at Grove — or hot and humid. We have an idea of what we want for times and jumps, for example, but in the end, it’s about where you place in the tournaments. That is our focus at this point; what we do now is preparation for then.” Ottoville hosts a quad match 4:30 p.m. Thursday, while all three teams return to Delphos for the St. John’s Invitational starting 9 a.m. Saturday.

The Herald — 7

Jefferson grabs NWC baseball triumph SPENCERVILLE — Jefferson rallied from a 1-run deficit in the fourth inning and shut out Spencerville over the final three frames to knock off Spencerville 10-7 in a Northwest Conference baseball game on a sunny and pleasant Monday afternoon/ evening at Spencerville. The Bearcats (1-6, 0-1 NWC) had rallied from a 6-2 deficit after 2 1/2 innings to take a 7-6 edge before the visiting Wildcats (12-4, 2-1 NWC) came back. Drew Kortokrax led the visitors with a 3-for-4 day at the plate (2 runs), while Zach Ricker and Seth Wollenhaupt (RBI) were both 2-for-3 and Jordan Herron got on via three free passes. Zach Ricker (3-1) was the winner with 3 2/3 innings of relief of Herron (2 1/3 IPs). Ross Thompson got his second save with an inning. Jon Shimp went 2-for-3 (2 runs) for the hosts. Joey Shimp took the loss with 4 2/3 innings in relief of starter Aaron Crider (1 1/3 IP). Jefferson scored three times in the top of the second without benefit of a hit: four walks — two of them bases loaded to Tyler Wrasman and Zach Ricker — a hit batter and an error, to go up 3-0. Spencerville got two back in the home half on two free passes and a pair of hits, including a 2-run single by Sean Monfort. The Wildcats tacked on three more in the third via two walks and three hits, including a 2-run double by Ross Thompson and a runscoring 2-bagger by Seth Wollenhaupt, for a 6-2 edge. The Bearcats tied it up with a 4 spot in the home half, combining two walks and two hits, including a 2-run double by Wyatt Krouskop, plus a key miscue that allowed two more runs in. The Bearcats took a 7-6 edge in the fourth courtesy of a walk, a hit and a wild pitch that plated Joey Shimp. The visitors made it 8-7 in the fifth, adding two more

hits and a big error that scored Thompson and Ricker. The guests put up a solo tally in the sixth on a sacrifice fly to center by Thompson (plating Wollenhaupt). Jefferson accounted for the final scoreboard in the seventh on a double by Drew Kortokrax, a wild pitch and a balk. Jefferson visits Elida 5 p.m. today, while Spencerville visits LCC Thursday. ——Lady Bearcats run-rule Jefferson By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com SPENCERVILLE — Spencerville’s fast-pitch softball crew rode the 2-hit pitching of Alex Shumate and compiled 11 hits in a 12-1 5-inning Northwest Conference rout of the visiting Wildcats Monday. Shumate (2-3) walked six and fanned eight in giving up an unearned tally. Alyssa Mulholland led the attack with a 4-for-4 contest (3 runs, 2 runs batted in), with Tori Johnston 2-for-2 (2 runs, 3 RBIs). Taylor Branham (0-6) took the loss for the Wildcats (0-6, 0-2 NWC), ceding all 11 hits and all 12 runs (10 earned). She walked five and struck out six. Branham and Kamie Pulford got the visitors’ only hits. The Wildcats got Branham on base in the top of the first (2-out walk) but was stranded. The Bearcats scored three times in the home half on three walks, three wild pitches and a pair of hits, including a 2-run double to left by Johnston, to make it 3-0. Jefferson got its only run in the second as they loaded the bases on two walks and an error, allowing Samantha Branham (walk) to score and make it 3-1, Bearcats. The hosts made it 6-1 in the bottom half, getting a pair of errors and three hits, including an RBI hit by Johnston. Spencerville extended the lead to 10-1 in the third, getting a walk, a hit batter and two hits, including a 2-run

MONDAY ROUNDUP

shot up the gut by Mulholland. The Wildcats had a potential big inning in the fourth go by the wayside as a pair of runners (S. Branham and Kamie Pilford) were both nabbed trying to steal second by Haleigh Mull. Spencerville tacked on their final two tallies in the fourth on a walk and three hits, with a 2-run single by Haley Calvelage, to account for the final score. The visitors got a pair of runners: Alexis Cook and T. Branham; on in the fifth but they were left there, ending the game. ——— Niemeyer outduels Geise in MAC baseball opener MINSTER — Minster’s Adam Niemeyer outpitched St. John’s Curtis Geise for a 3-0 Midwest Athletic Conference triumph Monday at Minster in a game postponed from April 16. Geise was good, only giving up a pair of hits and three runs, fanning 10 in five innings. However, he walked six and none of the runs were earned. Niemeyer went the distance for the Wildcats (9-1, 1-0 MAC) in a 1-hitter, striking out 14. He faced only two batters over the 7-inning minimum. Geise had the only hit for the Blue and Gold. The hosts scored their only runs in the first two frames: one in the opener and two in the second. Niemeyer had a hit, as did Poeppelman and Nixon. St. John’s (3-6, 0-1 MAC) visits Bath 5 p.m. today.

Benroth, Jay and Roney hit consecutive doubles, Brady Shafer reached first on a dropped third strike and moved to second on a wild pitch.

Fort Jennings pitcher Warnecke came back out to the mound in the home half with his pitch count at 100. He walked Hoffman to lead off the inning the Bulldog center fielder moved to second on a wild pitch before Benroth celebrated his birthday with a game-ending single.

By Associated Press DENVER — David Lee went from Golden State’s All-Star power forward and double-double machine to the Warriors’ biggest cheerleader and strategic adviser during timeouts. Mostly, though, he just sat back and enjoyed the show Tuesday night when the Warriors stunned the Denver Nuggets 131-117 to even their playoff series at a game each. The Warriors hardly missed much of anything. Not many of their shots — and not even their injured All-Star, who is out for the rest of the playoffs with a torn right hip flexor. Behind Stephen Curry’s 30 points and 13 assists, the Warriors became the first opponent to walk off the Pepsi Center court a winner Score by Innings: Fort Jenning 0 0 0 0 1 - 1 4 4 since the Washington Wizards on Col.

And it was, only not the way the Pepsi Center crowd anticipated.

Warriors cruise past Nuggets 131-117
“We’re a resilient team; said that all year. When guys go down, other guys step up,” said Curry, who played through a tender left ankle after turning it late in the third quarter. “We showed that tonight. Big road win for us. We’ve got to go home and protect our homecourt.” Even without their All-Star, the Warriors outrebounded the Nuggets 36-26. “We didn’t do much of anything very well,” Nuggets coach George Karl lamented. “I don’t think I ever coached a game when a team got three 35-point quarters, maybe in my career. Ever.” The best anybody shot against Denver during the season was 54 percent, by the Los Angeles Lakers way back on Nov. 20, and the most points the Nuggets had allowed was 126 at San Antonio on Nov. 17. Curry scored just one bucket, a 3-pointer, after turning his ankle but doesn’t expect it to be an issue Friday night when the series shifts back to Oakland for Game 3. Lawson and Corey Brewer each scored 19 points for Denver and Iguodala and Miller both had 18 but the Nuggets were playing catch-up from the middle of the second quarter and couldn’t keep up with so many of the Warriors’ shots falling, negating Denver’s league-best transition game. Lee led the league in double-doubles with 56 and had another before getting hurt in the fourth quarter of the series opener on Saturday. The Warriors were 3-18 without him over the last three seasons but Jackson mixed and matched his lineup to make up for his All-Star’s absence on this night, when Lee gave advice to his teammates during timeouts. The Nuggets were hoping the return of Faried would help them reverse their 10-point disadvantage on the boards in Game 1. But he was rusty and the same problems that plagued Denver in the opener — missing too many open shots, getting outmuscled on the glass and giving up open 3s — haunted them once again and even more so. Curry scored 15 points in the second quarter and hit four jumpers during a 14-5 run the Warriors used to grab control and take the air out of the Pepsi Center as they cruised into halftime with a 61-53 lead that would never be threatened in the second half. Curry swished another sweet jumper to start the third quarter and the Warriors opened up a 17-point lead they would stretch to 20 in the fourth quarter.

The Associated Press National League DENVER — B.J. Upton and his brother Justin hit back-to-back homers for the first time, leading the Atlanta Braves past the Colorado Rockies 10-2 Tuesday night to complete a doubleheader sweep that began with the coldest game at Coors Field. It was the 27th time in major-league history that brothers homered in the same game but only the second time they went deep in consecutive at-bats. Lloyd and Paul Waner of the Pittsburgh Pirates also accomplished the feat on Sept. 15, 1938. In the first game, Justin Upton, Dan Uggla and rookie Evan Gattis homered in support of a solid outing by Mike Minor (3-1) as the Braves won 4-3 in a game that began in 23-degree weather. It was the coldest game-time temperature in the majors since such data collection began in 1991, according to STATS. The temperature warmed up for the night game — but only a bit. It was 30 degrees at first pitch. In the nightcap, B.J. Upton homered off Jon Garland (2-1) to start the fifth inning, his third of the season. Justin Upton drove Garland’s next pitch to center for his major leagueleading 11th home run. Atlanta outhomered the Rockies 6-0 in taking both games from Colorado, which entered the twin-bill tied with the Braves for the best record in baseball at 13-5.

Julio Teheran (1-0) allowed one run over seven innings in the nightcap to quiet the Rockies. The Braves also got a home run and runscoring double from Juan Francisco. Reed Johnson, playing right field for Atlanta in the opener because Jason Heyward underwent an appendectomy Monday night, went 4-for-4 with three doubles. Heyward was put on the 15-day DL. Craig Kimbrel earned his eighth save in eight chances. Jeff Francis (1-2) gave up four runs in four innings, leaving him with an 8.44 ERA.

MLB CAPSULES

HEAT 98, BUCKS 86 MIAMI — Dwyane Wade scored 21 points and LeBron James finished with 19 as Miami took off in the fourth quarter to take a 2-0 lead in the first-round series. Chris Bosh, Shane Battier and Chris Andersen all scored 10 points for the Heat. Game 3 is Thursday in Milwaukee. The Heat scored the first 12 points of the fourth quarter, needing just over 2 minutes to blow open what had been a 3-point game. Ersan Ilyasova scored 21 points for Milwaukee, which got 16 from Mike Dunleavy and 14 from Larry Sanders. The Bucks’ starting guards, Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis, combined for only 15 points after scoring 48 in Game 1. KNICKS 97, CELTICS 71 NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points, Sixth Man of the Year J.R. Smith added 19 and New York opened a 2-0 lead over Boston with an 87-71 victory Tuesday night. Raymond Felton added 16 points for the Knicks, who used a 27-4 run spanning halftime to blow it open and move halfway to their first series victory since the 2000 Eastern Conference semifinals. This is their first 2-0 lead since sweeping Toronto in the first round that year. Paul Pierce scored 18 points for the Celtics, who will host Game 3 on Friday in their first home game since the Boston Marathon bombings. Kevin Garnett had 12 points and 11 rebounds but battled foul trouble for Boston. Anthony followed his 36-point opener by making 8-of-13 shots in the second half to finish 11-of-24 for the game.

“The game plan tonight was to keep the ball out of Stephen Curry’s hands but he came off (the pick-and-rolls) and had open looks and then he started finding people,” Ty Lawson said. “After that, we started scrambling and we can’t play like that.” Asked if he thought the Nuggets were overconfident with Faried back and Lee down, Jack replied: “They’re confident for a good reason. They’re a great team, especially playing in this building where they’ve only lost three games. I would be confident too. I don’t think that’s a shot at us, but they’re back at full strength. “If we were at full strength we’d be confident, as well. This by no means is a celebratory situation for us. We still have to come in and take care of business Friday.” Notes: Faried finished with four points and two rebounds in 21 minutes. … Curry’s 30-10 playoff game was the first for the franchise since Sleepy Floyd on May 10, 1987. He’s the third NBA player since 2000 (Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul — twice) to post 30 points, 13 assists and five rebounds in a playoff game. … Carl Landry was introduced as a starter but Jack was summoned just before tip-off instead. … Lawson had a career playoffbest 12 assists. … With 14 points off the bench, Nuggets F Anthony Randolph had a career playoff-high 14 points. … The last time the Nuggets surrendered 20-plus points to four players in a playoff game was on May 17, 1985, to the Lakers (James Worthy 28, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 27, Byron Scott 21, Michael Cooper 20).

CARDINALS 2, NATIONALS 0 WASHINGTON — Adam Wainwright extended his sterling start to the season — and Washington’s mediocre one — by coming within two outs of his second shutout for St. Louis. Wainwright (4-1) lowered his ERA to 1.93 by allowing five hits in 8 1/3 innings. Edward Mujica got two outs for his third save. Allen Craig and Carlos Beltran drove in runs in the fourth off Ross Detwiler (1-1), who gave up eight hits across six innings. The Nationals, who led the majors with 98 wins last season and were a popular pick to do well in 2013, lost for the eighth time in their past 11 games to fall to 10-10. Wainwright’s walk to Bryce Harper with two outs in the sixth was the pitcher’s first free pass of the season and it came in his fifth start, after 34 2/3 innings. BREWERS 6, PADRES 3 SAN DIEGO — Yovani Gallardo pitched into the seventh inning and Milwaukee rode an early offensive outburst against San Diego to its ninth consecutive victory. The winning streak is Milwaukee’s longest since it won 10 straight in August 2003. Gallardo (2-1) allowed three runs in 6 2/3 innings. Jonathan Lucroy hit a 2-run double in the Brewers’ 5-run second. Tom Gorzelanny escaped a bases-loaded threat in the seventh and Jim Henderson earned his fifth save. Padres starter Clayton Richard (0-2) gave up six runs and six hits in 1 2/3 innings. The Padres have scored six runs during their 5-game slide and are 5-15 on the season. CUBS 4, REDS 2, 10 INNINGS CINCINNATI — Carlos Marmol blew a lead in the ninth inning before Darwin Barney bailed him out with a homer in the 10th that lifted Chicago over Cincinnati. Chicago ended its 4-game losing streak. Barney connected off left-hander Manny Parra (0-1) and Dave Sappelt added an RBI single. Marmol (2-1), who lost the closer’s job after a rough opening week, came on with a runner on second and one out in the ninth to face Joey Votto, who was 1-for-15 in his career against the reliever with nine strikeouts. Votto singled up the middle to tie it. Marmol escaped a bases-loaded threat to keep it tied. Kevin Gregg fanned Votto with two aboard in the 10th to get his first save. PIRATES 2, PHILLIES 0 PHILADELPHIA — Jeff Locke pitched six innings of 2-hit ball and Gaby Sanchez homered off Cole Hamels to lead Pittsburgh over Philadelphia. Locke (2-1) struck out six and walked two. After wriggling out of a jam in the fourth, he retired his last eight batters — striking out three of the final four. Sanchez also doubled and Brandon Inge had an RBI double in

his Pirates’ debut. After opening the season with a pair of poor outings, Hamels (0-3) pitched well for the third straight start but was hurt by a lack of run support again. The Phillies were shut out for the third time this season. Jason Grilli pitched the ninth for his eighth save in eight chances. DODGERS 7, METS 2 NEW YORK — Mark Ellis lined two home runs and hit a hard grounder that sent Mets starter Jonathon Niese limping off for X-rays, leading Los Angeles over New York. Ellis got four hits and drove in four runs. He hit his 100th career homer in the fifth inning, then connected for a tie-breaking, 3-run shot with two outs in the seventh. Los Angeles won despite an uneven outing by ace Clayton Kershaw. With Dodgers great Sandy Koufax watching at Citi Field, Kershaw walked four and struck out five in five innings. Ronald Belisario (1-2) pitched one inning for the win. Brandon Lyon (1-1) gave up Ellis’ go-ahead homer. DIAMONDBACKS 6, GIANTS 4, 11 INNINGS SAN FRANCISCO — Didi Gregorius scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the 11th inning and Arizona beat San Francisco after blowing a late 4-run lead. Gregorius hustled for a 1-out double off Santiago Casilla (2-2) and pinch-hitter Alfredo Marte reached on an error by first baseman Brandon Belt. Casilla then threw a wild pitch that allowed Gregorius to score. Gerardo Parra followed with an RBI double to make it 6-4. Matt Reynolds finished for his first career save. Brad Ziegler (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win. The Diamondbacks led 4-0 before the Giants scored twice in the eighth and tied it in the ninth on Belt’s pinch-hit, 2-run homer off closer J.J. Putz, who has blown three saves in six tries this season. San Francisco put two on in the 10th but failed to score when Pablo Sandoval was thrown out at home plate by Arizona rightfielder and former teammate Cody Ross following Hunter Pence’s 2-out single. American League ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Ichiro Suzuki hit a go-ahead 2-run single in the ninth inning and the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 Tuesday night. Robinson Cano ended AL Cy Young Award winner David Price’s night with a leadoff single in the ninth. Tampa Bay is winless in all five of Price’s starts this year. The lefthander (0-2) allowed three runs and eight hits over 8-plus innings. After Cano stole second on a pitch by Fernando Rodney that struck out Vernon Wells, pinch-hitter Travis Hafner was intentionally walked and Lyle Overbay walked to load the bases. First baseman James Loney helped Rodney by making a sliding catch on Chris Stewart’s foul ball but Suzuki then drove in two for a 4-2 lead on a liner to center. David Robertson (1-0) worked a perfect eighth before Mariano Rivera got his sixth save despite allowing Evan Longoria’s leadoff homer. The only other team to lose the first five starts made by a reigning Cy Young winner was the 1989 Minnesota Twins. They lost in Frank Viola’s first seven starts before finally winning on May 9. ANGELS 5, RANGERS 4, 11 INNINGS ANAHEIM, Calif. — Howie Kendrick hit his second home run of the game in the 11th inning and finished with four RBIs, leading Los Angeles over Texas. Kendrick, who hit a 2-run shot in the sixth off Alexi Ogando and an RBI single in the first, drove a 1-1 pitch to left-center against rookie Joe Ortiz (2-1) for his third homer of the season. Dane De La Rosa (1-0) pitched two perfect innings for his first majorleague win. The Rangers tied it 4-all in the eighth with an unearned run against

Scott Downs. Texas had a runner at third with two outs in the ninth against Ernesto Frieri but leftfielder Mike Trout robbed Adrian Beltre of an extra-base hit with a full-out diving catch on the warning track. Nelson Cruz hit a 3-run homer for the Rangers. ORIOLES 4, BLUE JAYS 3 BALTIMORE — Manny Machado had two hits and two RBIs and Baltimore used a 4-run second inning to beat R.A. Dickey and Toronto. Miguel Gonzalez (2-1) allowed three runs in six innings for the Orioles. It was the 100th consecutive game the Orioles have won when leading after seven innings, a streak that began in August 2011. Baltimore is 4-3 in 1-run games after starting 0-3. Edwin Encarnacion hit a 3-run homer for the last-place Blue Jays. Dickey (2-3) gave up four runs, six hits and five walks in six innings. ATHLETICS 13, RED SOX 0, 7 INNINGS BOSTON — Bartolo Colon allowed three hits and Oakland capitalized on eight walks, two balks and two errors to beat Boston in a rainshortened game. The A’s broke a scoreless tie with six runs in the third when Seth Smith hit a 2-run homer, then added two in the fourth, four in the fifth and one in the sixth to snap a 4-game skid. Colon (3-0) pitched all seven innings and had little trouble in the light-to-medium rain that fell throughout the game. He struck out seven and issued his first walk this season in 25 innings to Jacoby Ellsbury leading off the sixth. Alfredo Aceves (1-1) wallowed seven earned runs in 3 1/3 innings for Boston. TWINS 4, MARLINS 3, GAME 1; MARLINS 8, TWINS 5, GAME 2 MINNEAPOLIS — Oswaldo Arcia hit his first career home run and Kevin Correia gave up two runs in seven innings, leading Minnesota over Miami in the opener of a day-night doubleheader. The Marlins’ offense finally showed some life in the nightcap with an 8-5 victory. Arcia’s 3-run homer in the fourth backed Correia (2-1), who allowed five hits and struck out five in the opener. The Twins shrugged off yet another chilly day to win their fifth straight. Brian Dozier had three hits and Glen Perkins got his sixth save. Jose Fernandez (0-2) gave up four runs and six hits for the Marlins, who are off to a franchise-worst 5-16 start after an offseason salary purge. Joe Mahoney had two hits and two RBIs for Miami. In the second game, Rob Brantly had three hits and a career-high four RBIs for Miami. Brantly had two doubles and Ricky Nolasco (1-2) allowed two earned runs on six hits in five innings for the Marlins, who won for just the fifth time this season. Miami had a season-high 16 hits, including a double, a single and two RBIs from struggling slugger Giancarlo Stanton. Steve Cishek got his second save. Joe Mauer had two hits and an RBI, while Mike Pelfrey (2-2) had another rough outing, giving up five runs on nine hits in 4 2/3 innings as the Twins lost for the first time in six games. ASTROS 3, MARINERS 2 HOUSTON — Marwin Gonzalez homered, Bud Norris rebounded from a tough start last time out and Houston snapped a 3-game skid with a victory over Seattle. The game was tied at 1 when Gonzalez launched his homer about 10 rows into the stands in right field to start Houston’s third. Gonzalez, who bats ninth, hit just four home runs in 80 games last season and has three in 16 this year. Houston got an insurance run when Hisashi Iwakuma (2-1) hit Justin Maxwell with a pitch with the bases loaded later in that inning. Norris (3-2) allowed a seasonhigh eight hits in five innings.

Procter & Gamble 3Q net rises 6 pct on cost cuts
BY MAE ANDERSON NEW YORK (AP) — Procter & Gamble says its net income rose 6 percent in the fiscal third quarter, beating expectations as the company cut costs and gained market share in North America and elsewhere. Still, the world’s largest consumer product maker issued a weak fourth-quarter outlook. Its stock fell in premarket trading. The Cincinnati-based company, which makes products ranging from Tide detergent to Crest toothpaste and Gillette razors found in 98 percent of American households, is cutting costs and ramping up innovation to offset a weakened European economy and slowing growth in China. New products such as Tide Pods — detergent in a capsule — in North America, which the company is now rolling out in Mexico, helped P&G hold or increase market share in categories representing more than 50 percent of its sales globally and twothirds of its sales in the U.S. Other new product introductions include Oil of Olay CC Cream and the Swiffer “Buy” rating on the company. P&G’s net income for the January-to-March quarter rose to $2.57 billion, or 88 cents per share. That compares with net income of $2.41 billion, or 82 cents per share last year.

DEAR BRUCE: I BRUCE WILLIAMS read your column every week in the Mankato (Minn.) Free Press and enjoy it immensely. I have a question for you. Right before my mother died, she signed the family house, worth $400,000, to my older sister. I do not feel my mother was in her right mind, but I have chosen not to challenge my sister on this issue because she is the only relative I have left. My sister and I agreed that she would give me $10,000 a year for 10 years, for a total of $100,000. So far, she’s given me only $20,000. Do you think it would be wise to ask her to take out a loan and give me an $80,000 payment in one lump sum? Then she would have the tax advantage of being able to deduct the interest on the loan and I could pay off my own mortgage, which is about $80,000. My husband and I jointly make about $50,000 a year. I am 52 years old, and for retirement I am looking at Social Security and my husband’s pension. I’m thinking that if our mortgage were paid off, I could start saving at least half of my salary in an IRA for retirement. -- R.J., Minnesota DEAR R.J.: I think you are being extraordinarily generous with your sister. You’re going to settle for only 25 percent over 10 years. That doesn’t seem at all fair. If you choose not to challenge your sister, I think you should receive at least $150,000. That being observed, I would insist that the money be paid in a lump sum. What happens if your sister decides that she wants to leave the house to some charity and then passes away? You’re out in the cold. Since the value of the house is $400,000, it shouldn’t be a problem for her to get a $130,000 mortgage if she has any type of decent income. You are entitled to the money now, and you should be able to invest it by paying off your mortgage. I know this may be a rough meeting with your sister, but I believe it’s one that is called for. DEAR BRUCE: I have a question about late fees. I financed some furniture to take advantage of zero percent interest. The financing company and my personal bank of 20 years are one and the same. I set up automatic payments to manage this account. The payments are due on the 14th of each month. In October 2012, the 14th was on a Sunday, and the finance company didn’t process the payment until Monday, Oct. 15. Consequently, the company applied a late fee to the account. I have never experienced this before. I called to have the fee removed and to discuss what would happen the next time the due date fell on a Sunday, but the financing company would not remove the fee. Is this correct that a late fee is charged when the due date falls on a Sunday? -- K.R., via email DEAR K.R.: I don’t know whether the company was technically correct in charging a fee because the payment was received one day late as a consequence of the due date being a Sunday. Examine your agreement and see how it addresses this matter. The way to make sure this will not happen again is to have the automatic payment executed on the 12th of each month instead of the 14th. Since you have been a customer of this institution for many years, ask again to have this fee removed. Usually banks will do this to accommodate a good customer.

Mother misses teaching moment to be vindictive

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 2013 In the year ahead, you could somewhat reluctantly enter into a partnership arrangement. However, even though in your eyes it won’t be ideal, it could end up producing numerous and unexpected benefits. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Strive to be cooperative when you find yourself dealing with a group of friends. If you’re self-serving, others will follow suit and no one will benefit. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -You have the ability to achieve some important objectives, as long as you don’t spread yourself too thin. Trying to juggle several projects may not be the best idea. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- When talking with friends about something political, you should be extra careful. If you find that you’re endorsing a position that differs from theirs, walk away fast. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Getting along with people from all walks of life is one of your better assets. Be careful, however, because this wonderful ability might not apply when dealing with authority figures. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Methods that work well for you might not do so for others. Don’t try to force your way of doing things on an unbeliever. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -There is nothing wrong with your earning potential, but you might not be too adept at keeping what you make. Don’t allow what you worked so hard for to slip through your fingers. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Although taking charge comes naturally to you, don’t ruffle the feathers of those who want to express themselves differently. There’s room for every sort of viewpoint. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Friends will help you to a limited degree, but don’t ask them to take care of things that you should be handling yourself. You wouldn’t like the answers you got. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You won’t be disappointed if you build your hopes on a realistic basis. The opposite will be true, however, if your expectations are predicated upon receiving a free ride. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Certain conditions that have an influence on your finances and/or career could become quite complex. Handle your affairs with extreme care and delicate attention to detail. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Provided no one challenges you, you will be a most delightful companion. Those who dare to do so, however, could see a totally different side of your personality. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Walk away from any kind of joint venture the moment you see that not everyone has anted up equally, especially if you’re one of those asked to pony up the most.

(Continued from page 1) Since the alley way is packed with utilities, the plan to go down Fourth Street was ‘scrapped,’ In general, the new plan, which has an estimated $136,000 price tag, is to install a 24-inch flat pipe above the sewer line and run from basin to basin and switch to 18-inch pipe at Third Street and continue up to State Route 224. “We will tear the existing out and run up to 224,” Goubeaux said. “We don’t want to dig up the laterals that we can’t fix.” “We need it approved before everything can get underway,” Miller said. Council member Tony Langhals questioned tearing out the 12-inch system that was installed in recent years. “Can’t we put another 12-inch pipe next to the existing?’ Langhals asked. Goubeaux said that they would need to install bigger manholes and chambers to accommodate those design specifications. “I would think the only money you would save is on pipe,” Goubeaux said.

“I’ll check with the guys at work and ask about costing a smaller pipe next to the existing 12-inch pipe.” Council will advertise bidding after holding a public meeting about the Auglaize Street project from 5:30-7 p.m. on May 20th. In new business, the village took bids on the old village truck and plow. A total of 13 bids ranging from $1,500 to $5,800 were received prior to the open bidding during the meeting. The winning bid came from Putnam Oil for $6,200. In last months meeting, BPA member, Fire chief Dan Honingford and President Phil Hilvers reported that a quarry pump by the lift station failed and it will cost close to $2,100 to replace. A new pump, which cost $2261, has been ordered and will be delivered in the near future. Also, Hilvers explained to council that there was a need to address communications between Water and Sewage Treatment Plant Manager Steve Wittler, Barry Koester and Chad Knippen. “We need to get some

guidelines or direction,” Hilvers said. “You want someone down there for so many hours?” Miller questioned. “The guys don’t go down there unless we need them.” Hilvers explained that Koester and Chad have to get some hands-on experience and get acquainted with the system in order for them to run the plant in case of an emergency or if Steve is on vacation. Knippen has expressed an interest in taking classes geared and acquiring the license toward educating him with working at the plant. “If Chad will go for a license, we want to help him,” Miller said. The Public Utilities Committee is planning a meeting to work with the village employees and remedy the situation. Additionally, Honingford ask council’s permission to use the Wannemacher house as a site for search and rescue and fire hose advancement training The training will be held strictly on the outside of the building and take place this weekend.

Survivors, caregivers receive gifts

Parks Naturalist Mark Mohr, who shared his knowledge on which plants are safe to ingest and those it would be wiser to avoid. “What you have to realize is that you can have every good intention when searching for edible or medicinal plants but if you’re not careful, you could end up in the graveyard,” he began. “For instance the Mayapple, the ripe fruit can be used for jams, jellies and even Mayapple wine but the Shawnee Indians knew how many of the roots they needed to dig up to commit suicide. “Another plant you should stay away from is the pretty white flower, Dutchman’s Breeches. They’re highly poisonous. On the other hand, Wild Geraniums are edible and this spring, Kendrick Woods will be purple with them. The Indians used to put the powdered, dried roots into wounds to stop the bleeding. It was also said that you can brew a tea from them that cures

Bomb

Dysentery. “ Mohr gave his audience a long list of edibles and ways to cook and prepare them. Some can be found growing in the average lawn like violets, while others you’d have to trek through woods or near water to find, like cattails. Mushrooms that are generally considered safe are puff ball and morrell. Other plants include wild leeks, wild asparagus, burdock root, rosehips, blackberries, raspberries, wild ginger, thistles, red clover, dandelions, chickweed and wild grapes. Mohr says a good rule of thumb to follow is “leaves of three, leave it be,” unless it’s a wild strawberry.sMohr also shared a few tidbits on medicinal plants, some of which are still used today. “The inner bark of the Slippery Elm is actually still an ingredient in a lot of different sore throat lozenges. Also, garlic is an antibiotic. It can cure a cold if you eat enough of it. When I feel a cold coming on,

I mix some garlic into my scrambled eggs and it works for me,” he said. “Another medicinal plant, the Pawpaw tree, is very similar to the South American Graviola Tree, which they’ve been using to make a tea from for centuries that shrinks tumors. Scientists have been trying to duplicate it in a lab and since they can’t, they don’t want to use it because it can’t be patented. The herbalist we talked to said it’s most potent when you collect the young roots and bark in the spring.” While some plants can have healing properties, Mohr advised his audience not to expect miraculous results and to do research before trusting any wild plant. “Like most things, not all of these medicinal plants will work for everyone,” he said. “You really want to do your homework before you make a meal out of the woods. Some like the Mayapple and Dutchman’s Breeches can be deadly, but others are safe and full of vitamins.”

Village, Md., who recalled conversations with Tamerlan’s worried father about Misha’s influence. Authorities don’t believe Tsarnaev or his brother had links to terror groups. However, two U.S. officials said that Tsarnaev frequently looked at extremist websites, including Inspire magazine, an Englishlanguage online publication produced by al-Qaida’s Yemen affiliate. The magazine has endorsed lone-wolf terror attacks. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were

not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly. Eight-year-old Martin Richard, a Boston schoolboy and the youngest of those killed by the blasts, was laid to rest Tuesday after a family-only funeral Mass. “The outpouring of love and support over the last week has been tremendous,” the family said in a statement. “This has been the most difficult week of our lives.” The Richards family said they would hold a public memorial service for Martin in the coming weeks.
