Delphos, Ohio

Ottoville students and cancer survivors spell out the word “hope” Friday morning in the school’s gymnasium during opening ceremonies of the annual Cancer Walk. (Delphos Herald/Stacy Taff) BY STACY TAFF OTTOVILLE — Ottoville Schools held its 8th annual Cancer Walk Friday. Inclement weather kept activities indoors but students, faculty and community members made the most of the day. Seniors Abby Siefker, Rachel Beining, Audrey Rieger, Ashley Wehri and Casey Miller were in charge of orchestrating events. “We have the opening ceremonies this morning and then Jason Wehri is our guest speaker. He’s actually an Ottoville graduate and a cancer survivor,” Siefker said. “After that we were going to have the survivor lap outside but it’s going to be in the halls now. Then we’ll have a bunch of games for students, root beer floats, a 50/50 raffle and a quilt raffle. There will be all kinds of fun activities.” Rieger says she’s gained a new appreciation for the Cancer Walk now that she’s older. “This is at least my fourth year doing this and it’s good to see all the little kids and how much they enjoy it,” she said. “It’s a neat thing to be older and noticing that because when you’re young you don’t think about it. It’s amazing that a small school can do so much. This event always takes up the whole school.”

Riddell calls special meeting
Delphos City Council President Kim Riddell has called a special council meeting for 7 a.m. Tuesday in the council chambers at 608 N. Canal St. to discuss Wastewater Treatment Plant issues. The meeting is open to the public. An executive session will most likely be called due to pending litigation.


Ottawa teen pleads not guilty to grand theft
Staff and Wire Reports OTTAWA - The Ottawa teenager who pointed authorities to the site where the bodies of two friends were found made his first appearance in court on Friday. Michael Fay, 17, entered a plea of not guilty to grand theft in Putnam County Juvenile Court Friday afternoon. An investigation is ongoing and there is a probability of more charges being filed against Fay. “It is premature at this point to say what those charges could be,” stated Assistant Putnam County Prosecutor Gary Lammers. “If the facts would warrant and support [a murder charge], it is on the table. But at this point, I have not seen a report that would give me a clear indication of whether that is appropriate at this stage or not, but we will reserve that right and we will make a thorough review.” When asked about the possibility of charging Fay as an adult, Assistant County Prosecutor Todd Schroeder said, “If the facts and circumstances warrant that, all potential charges remain on the table. Fay’s mother was beside him during the court appearance Friday. Fay himself said very little during the proceedings, answering only to tell Judge Michael Borer that he understood his rights. A pre-trial hearing could take place as soon as May 24. The two dead friends were 17-yearold Blake Romes and his 14-year-old brother Blaine. Their bodies were found in a ditch along Putnam County Road 7 Thursday afternoon after Fay told Columbus Police were to look. The three boys lived together in a trailer home in Ottawa. Early Thursday morning, the Romes’ mother, Shellie Grothause, was summoned home to see why Blaine had not reported to leave with his eighth-grade classmates for the class trip to Washington, D.C. When she arrived at the home in Elkcrest Trailer Park, she found what she said looked like a “crime scene.” Also missing was Grothause’s silver 2006 Chevrolet HHR. An Amber Alert for the three boys was issued at 11:21 a.m. Thursday. Less than two hours later, Fay was captured by Columbus Police after he stopped at a gas station to ask directions. He was driving the missing car. The Amber Alert was canceled at 3 p.m. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office said the 17-year-old told officers that the Romes brothers were dead and gave the locations of their bodies. Few other details have been released about the case. Sheriff Mike Chandler said the bodies were found in different locations. He declined to give additional information on what happened, say-

Neighbors at the trailer park say the women who lived there worked overnight shifts. Brad Bailey, who lives across the street, said he saw the women outside pacing back and forth for much of the day after the boys were reported missing Thursday. He said he had seen all three boys laughing and joking together in the past. Blaine was on the basketball and track teams, Kevin Brinkman said. Blake was a junior at OttawaGlandorf High School, where he was involved in track and choir, principal Jayson Selgo said Friday.

Bond with Mom this Mother’s Day


DELPHOS — Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood, is observed throughout the world and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. The actual dates and celebrations may vary but Mother’s Day is normally celebrated the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards and sentiments of love. Businesses in Delphos are gearing up for the second-busiest holiday of the year. Owner of Flowers on Fifth, Cheryl Stocke, recommends the “Shabby Chic” style arrangements, which are hot items, and the summer scented candles Caribbean Cheesecake and Crushed Honeydew. “The most popular item is a toss-up between hanging baskets, custom-designed floral arrangements and a dozen mixed color roses,” Stocke detailed. Readmore’s Hallmark Store Manager Joanne Wrasman said that this year’s gifting ideas include Hallmark Magic Prints which allows kids to give mom or grandma a personalized handprint — without a mess — within a picture frame, on drink tumblers, on Mother’s Day cards, in four panel frames and on gift bags. For pet parents, the store carries the kits for pet paw prints. “The cutest thing is when kids come in

with daddies and pick out gifts for mommies,” Wrasman mused. The first North American Mother’s Day was conceptualized by Julia Ward Howe, the writer of The Battle Hymn of the Republic, through her Mother’s Day Proclamation in 1870. The death and carnage of the Civil War spurred her to call on mothers to assemble and protest the futility of their sons killing the sons of other mothers. In 1873, a West Virginia women’s group led by Anna Reeves Jarvis conceived Mother’s Friendship Day — a holiday we celebrate today. The celebration of mothers was held to re-unite families and neighbors divided between the Union and Confederate sides of the Civil War. In 1908, Anna M. Jarvis campaigned for the creation of an official Mother’s Day in remembrance of her mother and in honor of peace. Her request was honored and on May 10, 1908, the first official Mother’s Day celebration took place at Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, W.Va., and a church in Philadelphia, Pa. Jarvis arranged for two white carnations — her mother’s favorite flower — to adorn every mother in attendance. Today, white carnations are used to honor deceased mothers, while pink or red carnations pay tribute to mothers whom are still alive.

DELPHOS — Before taking off on a day trip, weekend excursion or extended vacation with a destination including sand, sun and an ocean breeze, make sure to have routine and summer maintenance performed on the vehicle being driven, prepare for prices at the pump and map out a detailed driving route. Public Relations Manager for AAA Ohio Auto Club Kimberly Schwind said that many people don’t realize that preventative vehicle maintenance goes hand-in-hand with safety. It can also end up saving them tons of money down the road. “A small problem today can turn into a much larger, more expensive problem, if left unresolved,” Schwind explained. First and foremost, travelers need to inspect all five tires. AAA reports that one of the most frequently overlooked items on a vehicle is the spare tire. Check the tread depth and pressure of your tires and whether or not there is uneven wear. If possible, pack a real spare. If a tire blows out in the middle of nowhere, there may be quite a distance to drive on the spare. Service Manager at Delpha Chevrolet Buick Bill Schulte says that it is important to maintain the proper tire pressure for safety reasons, as well as to save money. “Tires inflated too high cause uneven wear; too low decreases fuel mileage,” Schulte explained. “Either scenario can cause the vehicle to pull one way or the other.” Properly-inflated tires can improve fuel economy by up to three percent, which is as much as 12 cents per gallon, according to the Department of Energy. Yet, 85 percent of drivers do not know how to properly inflate their tires. Motorists should fill tires to the level indicated in the vehicle owner’s manual or on the driver’s side door jamb. Before hitting the road, take the vehicle in for an oil change, proper filling of windshield washer fluid and coolant/antifreeze and an inspection of wiper blades and battery. Summer heat breaks down car batteries internally and accelerates the rate of corrosion on the vehicle’s battery terminals. Both conditions can lead to insufficient electrical power and leave a motorist stranded without warning. See TIRES, page 10

By The Associated Press Today is Saturday, May 11, the 131st day of 2013. There are 234 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 11, 1973, the espionage trial of Daniel Ellsberg and Anthony Russo in the “Pentagon Papers” case came to an end as Judge William M. Byrne dismissed all charges, citing government misconduct. On this date: In 1647, Peter Stuyvesant arrived in New Amsterdam to become governor of New Netherland. In 1862, during the Civil War, the Confederate ironclad CSS Virginia was scuttled by its crew off Craney Island, Va., to prevent it from falling into Union hands. In 1927, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was founded during a banquet at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. In 1943, during World War II, U.S. forces landed on the Aleutian island of Attu, which was held by the Japanese; the Americans took the island 19 days later. In 1950, President Harry S. Truman formally dedicated the Grand Coulee Dam in


Washington state. In 1960, Israeli agents captured Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 1985, 56 people died when a flash fire swept a jam-packed soccer stadium in Bradford, England. In 1996, an Atlanta-bound ValuJet DC-9 caught fire shortly after takeoff from Miami and crashed into the Florida Everglades, killing all 110 people on board. Ten years ago: The United States declared Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein’s Baath Party dead. Lithuania became the first ex-Soviet republic to approve entry into the European Union as voters completed a weekend referendum. Five years ago: Serbia’s pro-Western president, Boris Tadic (boo-RIHS’ TAH’dich), declared victory in parliamentary elections — a stunning upset over ultranationalists. One year ago: A Chicago jury convicted Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson’s former brother-in-law, William Balfour, of murdering her mother, brother and 7-yearold nephew. (Balfour was later sentenced to life in prison.)

Spencerville girl crowned Little Miss Northwest Galaxy
BY LINDSAY MCCOY Times Bulletin News Writer SPENCERVILLE Spencerville School first grader, Chantell Moore, was recently selected as a Little Miss Midwest Galaxy titleholder to represent Northwest Ohio at the national competition. Moore will be making a special trip to Orlando, Florida, for pageant finals from July 31-Aug. 3, as one of many delegates from across the United States and world to compete for Title of Little Miss Galaxy. Moore is the daughter of Kathy Moore and granddaughter to Wayne and Linda Moore of Wapakoneta. “We were introduced to this competition by Chantell’s pageant coach,” said Chantell’s mother. “Little Miss Northwest Galaxy was her first ever win and we are pretty excited. I really wanted her to try out pageants, and she has been doing it for a year now and really enjoys it.” While Moore is wholeheartedly in love with her new crown, as a seven-yearold she also enjoys socializing and making a variety of new friends through these pageants. Moore’s mother is very stern that she only participate in pageants that are more natural and do not focus on all the makeup and glam. These natural pageants instead focus on the inner beauty of a child and mean to prepare these girls for adulthood by focusing pageants on business interviews and other real life events. “I now want to teach my daughter how to volunteer within the community,” said Moore’s proud mother. “You don’t just receive the crown but a big responsibility as well. Little Miss Galaxy acts as a role model to other girls, and I want Chantell to set a good example for those who may now look up to her.” Moore has stepped up to her mother’s challenge and has donated dried and canned goods to her local food pantry, volunteered her time to work with the elderly, and donated canned goods and cash to homeless veterans. She also plans for future volunteer opportunities within her community as it is never too early to start giving. Moore will be attending several events over the summer in support of organizations such as Children’s Miracle Network, Marching Miles, and Arms Forces. In addition to competing for the Little Miss Galaxy title, while in Orlando is will have the opportunity to partake in photo shoots, parties, banquets. The Galaxy Pageant hopes to help young girls gain confidence and poise through their pageants to help them survive in an increasingly competitive world. Moore will be using this opportunity to grow and advance her personal and career goals while acting as a role model to other girls within her community and Northwest Ohio.

I was excited that I was going to going back to Ohio to be with my family. I missed them everyday I was away. When I watched the USS Toledo head out for the last time, it was a sad moment for me. I realized that I might not see my brothers again. I had their back and they had mine. I know I had my family to go home to, but I had no idea what my new life was going to look like. I struggled trying to adjust when I finished my enlistment. I had little tolerance for others….it was tough. When 9/11 happened I was angry and I remember making a phone call and telling the other end that I wanted to go back. For a long time I felt like I was giving up my brothers. I wanted to be with them, but my Mom taught me a very important lesson…she said ‘You can’t make decisions when you’re angry.’ So I spent the next few years trying to understand the decisions I made. “Post-traumatic stress disorder is a type of anxiety disorder.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A DNA test confirmed another dark twist in the story of three women imprisoned in a house for about a decade: Kidnapping and rape suspect Ariel Castro is the father of a 6-year-old girl who escaped from the house along with the women, a prosecutor said Friday. As the investigation into the women’s ordeal continued, the FBI also said no human remains were among more than 200 pieces of evidence collected from the house. Two of the women, including the one who gave birth to the girl, returned to relatives’ houses earlier this week. The third woman, Michelle Knight, was released from a hospital Friday with a request that her privacy be respected. “Michelle Knight is in good spirits and would like the community to know that she is extremely grateful for the outpouring of flowers and gifts,” the statement said. No information would be provided about Knight’s next steps, said MetroHealth Medical Center spokeswoman Phyllis Marino. Castro remained in jail under a suicide watch on $8 million bond while prosecu-

tors weighed what charges they might bring against him, including the possibility of charges carrying a death penalty. He currently is charged with rape and kidnapping. Castro was represented at Thursday’s hearing by public defender Kathleen Demetz, who said she is acting as Castro’s adviser if needed until he’s appointed a full-time attorney once he’s charged by a grand jury. She said Friday she can’t speak to his guilt or innocence and said only that she advised him not to give any media interviews that might jeopardize his case. Family members have portrayed Castro as a “monster” who terrorized the mother of his children, frequently beating her, playing twisted psychological games and locking her indoors. The stories, repeated in separate interviews by members of Castro’s extended family, have surprised people who knew him as a musician who played bass in several bands around Cleveland the last two decades. Miguel Quinones, manager of a group Castro played with twice as a backup bass player about five years ago, said Thursday he had nothing bad to say about Castro based on his own experiences.

What is Tough Mudder? Who are Tough Mudders? Tough Mudders is an event, a 10 – 12 obstacle course, with unbelievable obstacles. A Tough Mudder is a guy (or gal) who participates in these challenging events. Why do they do it? They want to prove how tough they are and in doing so they raise funds for Wounded Warriors. It calls for teamwork. Participants are asked to join in reciting the Tough Mudder Pledge before starting each event: It goes like this: “As a Tough Mudder I Pledge That: I understand that Tough Mudder is not a race, but a challenge. I put teamwork and camaraderie before my course time. I do not whine – kids whine. I help my fellow Mudders complete the course. I overcome all fears. Over 700,000 have participated in these world wide events, which have raised more than five million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project. The Tough Mudders consider a 26 mile marathon boring. A Mudder runs, crawls, climbs for 10 – 12 miles. The obstacles have such names as: Arctic Enema, Berlin Walls, Braveheart, Cliffhanger, Dirty Ballerina, Electroshock Therapy, Funky Monkey, Greased Lightning, Log Bog Jog, Spider’s Web, Devil’s Beard, Kiss Of Mud, Hangin’ Tough and Mud Mile. The course is extremely muddy, as the event name would imply. The obstacle courses were designed by British Special Forces to test the all around strength, stami-

na, mental grit and camaraderie of the many participants, world wide. To get over 12 foot walls and through underground mud tunnels, a mudder needs teammates to give him/ or her a boost and a push. Tough Mudders are expected to uphold these ideals and exhibit teamwork and camaraderie both on the course and off it. My grandson, Steve Dickman of Dublin, formerly of Fort Jennings has participated in two of these events. Several other young men, natives of Fort Jennings took

part in this event at Mansfield a couple weeks ago. They were: David Smith, Matt Burgei and Alex Maag of the Class of 2006 and Nick Schimmoeller and Jim Buettner of the Class of 2005 Steve Dickman spent four years in the U. S. Navy on the sub, USS Toledo. Now, he and his wife Amanda, have two children, Emma and Owen. They both teach in the Dublin School System. Steve expressed his heart felt feelings – why he is a Tough Mudder as follows: Why I do Tough Mudder

“This year I was on Team Good Clean Fun. Many of my teammates experienced their first Mudder in Mansfield. I remember when they were thinking about committing to run in the event. They weren’t sure… they were experiencing some intimidation and were worried about getting injured. Let’s just say that they found their fighting spirit. They now have an increased appreciation of what our service men and women do every day. “This country has thousands of men and women who

“Vice is most dangerous when it puts on the garb of virtue.” — Danish proverb

DEAR EDITOR, I attended the Town Meeting, Monday, April 29 at the Delphos Council Chamber. I was surprised at the “standing room only” attendance showing interest in the Miami and Erie Canal. The German settlers came to this area because of the Canal and founded “Delphos” on the banks of the canal. Being good citizens, it is only right to maintain what has been handed down through the years. I heard citizens and members of civic organizations asking how they can assist in improving the quality of life along the Canal. I have been volunteering in an effort to maintain the appearance of the canal for over 25 years in the Delphos community. The M & E Canal is owned by the State of Ohio and is located in Allen County. Thus, waivers are available through ODNR for anyone wishing to volunteer their time to clean the canal. The local committee has been meeting to formulate a plan to present to the elected officials in Columbus in an effort to receive funding to dredge and stabilize the banks of the canal through Delphos. At the town meeting, Neal Brady, executive director of MECCA, presented a plan drafted by the committee which showed ways to improve the canal and the quality of life in the Delphos area. He urged citizens to take ownership of the canal by reporting incidents of persons littering or disposing of any materials in or along the canal proper. City, county and state law enforcement officers have authority on canal property. He encouraged property owners to keep the grass cut and the area presentable to the local citizenry and visitors to the community. The tow path side of the canal is used by hikers utilizing the Buckeye Trail and the North Country Trail and others who travel here from all parts of the United States. Once the committee completes the final draft of the plan to improve the Canal through Delphos, it will be forwarded to the proper departments and elected officials of the State of Ohio. This plan will be to request funding to dredge and stabilize the banks so that a hike and bike path can be utilized. Once the plan is in the hands of those officials, it will be the duty of every citizen to urge action on their part to provide the needed funding. This can be done in writing or by e-mail to the proper official. Lou Hohman, President Delphos Canal Commission DEAR EDITOR, I would like to take this long overdue letter to personally say thank you to the street department snow plow drivers. For the extraordinary work they did with the streets this past winter. It’s a thankless job but not overlooked by this Delphos resident. Great job, guys! I would also like to thank the Delphos EMS First Responders and Kyle Fittro, police chief. I found myself in need of their services this past winter. Delphos is very lucky to have such a professional well-educated group of individuals to serve each and everyone of us. Thank you guys and ladies. Respectfully, Dave Gonyea

Mothers are wonderful. They bandage our scraped knees; kiss our tears away; smile when we act silly; thank us for those chunky clay masterpieces and other less-than-attractive gifts made precious by our own hands; hug us for no other reason than they love us; and want only the best for us, sacrificing what they want so we can have it. They feel our hearts break as if they were their own and always have a shoulder for our despair. They see us at our best and our worst and love us just the same. Of course, we never see what all this is about until we venture into motherhood ourselves. I think our mothers’ IQs raise with the stages our children’s lives are going through. On Sunday, mothers will be honored across the nation. Restaurants will be filled to capacity and florist shelves will be empty. The earliest tributes to mothers date back to the annual spring festival the Greeks dedicated to Rhea, the mother of many deities, and to the offerings ancient Romans made to their Great Mother of Gods, Cybele. Christians celebrated this festival on the fourth Sunday in Lent in honor of Mary, Mother of Christ. In England, this holiday was expanded to include all mothers and was called Mothering Sunday. In the United States, Mother’s Day started nearly 150 years ago. Appalachian homemaker Anna Jarvis organized a day to raise awareness of poor health conditions in her community, a cause she believed would be best seen to by

mothers. She called it “Mother’s Work Day.” The emotions of motherhood are universal and so our thoughts are for young mothers stumbling through diaper changes and sleep deprivation. And mature mothers learning to let go. For working mothers and stay-at-home mothers. Single mothers and married mothers. Mothers with money. Mothers without. This is for you all. For all of us. Hang in there! In the end, we can only do the best we can and tell our children every day that we love them and pray for them. On Sunday, moms will be pampered and treated to breakfast in bed. Carefully wrapped presents will be opened and proclaimed the best Mother’s Day gifts ever and she will mean it. So bring her flowers, chocolates, silk scarves and jewelry. Treat her to breakfast, lunch or dinner. Tell her you love her and are glad she is your mother. She’ll be glad, too.

DEAR EDITOR, On behalf of the members of the Delphos Knights of Columbus Council 1362, I would like to thank all the generous citizens of the Tri-county area who donated food to our Lenten project “40 Cans for Lent.” This was held in conjunction with the Friday Fish Fries at the council hall. One hundred sixty pounds of food was donated to the two food banks: St. Vincent dePaul and the Thrift Store. Each Friday in Lent. St. Vincent dePaul members delivered meals furnished by the K of C to shut-ins. In addition, 200 pounds of fish was donated to the Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen in Lima. Thanks to all. James Mesker Grand Knight DEAR EDITOR, The Delphos Library Board of Trustees and staff wish to thank the Delphos Community for the overwhelming support of the library’s renewal levy. The passage rate on the levy reminds all of us how we love our library and value its services. Thank you for the wonderful support you continue to show the library.

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON — Mistakes were made. This, we are supposed to accept, is the conclusion to be drawn about the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, despite congressional testimony Wednesday suggesting that significant efforts were made to camouflage those mistakes. As Democrats and Republicans alike know all too well: It’s always the coverup. Yet in this case, where so clearly the State Department and others in the Obama administration took extra steps to mischaracterize what happened the night Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed, Democrats roll their eyes at any suggestion of such. More or less, most seem to agree with Hillary Clinton’s exasperated assessment during her own congressional testimony in January: “What difference at this point does it make?” I get her meaning. Why people decided to attack the American consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi is far less important than preventing another such attack in the future. Clinton, who at that point in the hearing may have felt gered, was understandably weary. Four years on the road had taken their toll and she was recently out of the hospital for treatment of a blood clot inside her skull. This tedious review of history put her over the edge.

Benghazi redacted

Point of View
of four Americans? Of course not. Bad things happen in bad places. Should we have sent military assistance? If only life were a movie, we could have saved the day. But our military commanders say we couldn’t have gotten there in time. Civilians can speculate that they are wrong, but on what basis? Still, there is much that should give pause to anyone, regardless of political affiliation. Three essential questions have been answered: (1) Was there advance warning of possible terrorist activities in Libya? Yes. (2) Was a request for more security denied? Yes. (3) Did the Obama administration edit the truth? Yes. Faced with these answers, Democrats are more willing to give their president the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps he was trying to avoid further inflaming a dangerous situation by refusing to repeat his predecessor’s incendiary proclamations against Islamist terrorists. Or, just as likely, he was too close to re-election to risk contradictions to his campaign narrative: He had killed Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda was as good as dead. What we now know from testimony and other reporting is that Americans on the ground knew the Benghazi attacks were coordinated terrorist assaults and not a street protest over an anti-Muslim video that escalated. Nevertheless, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice was sent on a tour of five Sunday morning news

shows to reiterate the CIA-approved talking points. On Friday, ABC’s Jonathan Karl reported that a review of emails shows that those talking points were the result of 12 different revisions, orchestrated by the State Department, resulting in removal of any reference to warnings or the al-Qaeda-affiliated group Ansar al-Sharia. In one email to White House officials, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland expressed concerns that inclusion of such information “could be abused by members [of Congress] to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings, so why would we want to feed that either?” These emails directly contradict White House press secretary Jay Carney’s remarks in a Nov. 28, 2012, news briefing that the “single adjustment” made to the talking points by the administration was “changing the word ‘consulate’ to ‘diplomatic facility.’” In another email, Nuland expressed dissatisfaction with some of the tweaks, writing, “These changes don’t resolve all of my issues or those of my buildings leadership.” Therein lies a telling clue. When a “building’s leadership” is cited as directing an official narrative, you can be sure that someone is trying to avoid responsibility for something. Otherwise known as CYA (covering your anatomical-posterior). It is easy to believe that real-time mistakes in Benghazi were honestly made. No one thinks that any president or secretary of state would do less than everything possible to save American lives. But the mistakes made afterward, whether out of embarrassment or political survival, are less easily rationalized. They were, factually and knowingly, dishonest. And that, Madame Secretary, is what difference it makes. Kathleen Parker’s email address is

Lady Green pummels Wildcats in last game before tourney
By JIM METCALFE OTTOVILLE — Jefferson was making its final preparations for the second season in fast-pitch softball Friday afternoon at Ottoville. The Lady Wildcats continued their seasonlong struggles as the Lady Green jumped all over them with a 10-run first frame and went on to a 15-0 five-inning rout. Lady Green (2-9) senior Kenzie Martin (2-7) tossed a 1-hitter in her five-inning complete game, facing only one over the minimum (47 pitches, 38 strikes), walking none and fanning eight. The only hit for the Lady Wildcats (0-14) came on a solid 1-out single down the leftfield by senior Taylor Branham in the second frame. In the Ottoville first against junior starter Hannah Sensibaugh, they sent 14 to the dish. They compiled six stolen bases, five free passes, five wild pitches, three errors and four hits, including a two-run double by Martin (2-for-4, 4 runs batted in) and run-scoring knocks by Morgan Beining and Stephanie wasn’t a good day. We didn’t get anything going at the plate and we struggled in the field. At the same time, these girls continue to play hard and work to get better. We need to come out mentally ready for our tourney game and I think if we do, we will play well.” Branham came on in relief for the Wildcats in the third and retired all six batters she faced. “We have been a lot closer than our record indicated. We’ve been hitting the ball all season; it just seems like it’s right at someone,” Ottoville coach Joe Modica explained. “At Pandora-Gilboa the other night, we were hitting liners right at them; tonight, they dropped in. We were having fun; it’s a lot easier to pitch like Kenzie tonight when you get a big lead.” Jefferson takes on Parkway in the second game round of the Division IV sectionals at Lincolnview today (1 p.m.).

Horstman. In the end, Sensibaugh had thrown 64 pitches as the Lady Green led 10-0. In the Ottoville second, they added five more tallies in sending 11 to the plate. This time, they amassed one error, a hit batter, two free passes — one a bases-loaded one to Elena Horstman (2 walks) — and three hits, including a two-run single by Martin and a run-producing base hit by Paige Lucas (2-for-

Robyn Turnwald added two free passes for the hosts. “We tried to save our ace, Taylor, for the first tournament game (today) and also give Hannah some time on the mound. She needs the time because she is only a junior and the only way you get better is to play,” Jefferson coach Josiah Stober noted. “Overall, it just

Bulldogs sweep PCL track meet
By Charlie Warnimont DHI Correspondent OTTOVILLE — Field events were key at the Putnam County League track and field championships Friday night at Ottoville’s Bob Kaple Athletic Complex. Columbus Grove was able to score a bunch of points in the field events that helped them to repeat championships at the PCL meet. The Grove boys scored 184 points Friday to repeat as league champions as Leipsic finished second. In the girls meet, the Lady Bulldogs outscored Fort Jennings. Points in the field events were especially key for the Lady Bulldogs in the field events. With Fort Jennings fielding a strong group of sprints, Grove coach Tim Staley knew gettings as many points in the field events would be key. His expectations proved true as the Lady Musketeers scored all of their points on the track. “It was a team effort,” Grove coach Tim Staley said. “The entire team, we challenged them this week. because we knew Fort Jennings was going to so tough on the track and after our invite (Bulldog Invitational), I think our girls felt it was going to be a given that we would win this meet. I knew with their top end girls having such good speed it was going to take an effort of the girls going out and doing everything they could. They took ownership of that gave everything they could and it started in the field events.” The Bulldogs took first and second in the high jump with Cassie Schroeder and Alexis Ricker second. Grove also was first and second in the discus with Megan Verhoff winning and Annie Schramm second. They also scored well in the shot put and pole vault “I give a lot of credit to Kevin and the job he has done with that team,” Staley said. “Not having a junior high program or track, they deserve a lot of credit for what they have done.

Big 1st inning propels Lancers over Big Green
By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald OTTOVILLE — As the regular baseball season is coming to an end and the tournament trail starts next week, the Lincolnview Lancers traveled to Ottoville to take on the Big Green in a non-league game. The Lancers used a big first inning, scoring six times and, had it hold up for a 7-3 win over the Big Green. Friday night was Senior Night for six members of the Big Green squad. Cory Fischer, Bryan Hohlbein, Craig Odenweller, Derek Schimmoeller, Jacob Turnwald and Zach Weber were all honored on the night and given a signed team baseball from head coach Tony Castronova. The team and parents also presented the six outgoing seniors with a meal, pictures and a big chocolate cookie with their name and number on it. The Lancers jumped on the Big Green right from the start in the first inning, taking advantage of three hits and four walks to score six big runs in sending 12 batters to the plate. Senior Nick Leeth started the inning off with an infield hit. Junior Kyle Williams drew a walk and designated hitter Matt Oechsle scored Leeth with a base hit. After the Big Green retired junior Connor McCleery, they strung together hits by freshmen Tyler Richey, Leeth, Williams and three consecutive walks to junior Derek Friesner, freshmen Derek Youtsey and senior Troy Patterson to plate

Bruskotter also placed in

an additional five more runs and take a 6-0 lead on the Big Green. The Lancers extended their lead in the top of the fourth when Williams started off the inning with a deep double to right-centerfield and came home on a fly ball that was dropped in the outfield off the bat of McCleery, making the score 7-0. The Big Green’s bats were held quiet until the bottom of the fourth inning when the Big Green got back-to-back home runs from sophomore Brandon Boecker (third on the season) and junior Alex Horstman (second on the year), making the deficit 6-2.

Jays pound Indians in MAC baseball FORT RECOVERY — St. John’s pounded out 16 hits en route to an 8-2 Midwest Athletic Conference baseball triumph over Fort Recovery Friday at Recovery. Curtis Geise set the table from his leadoff spot with a 4-for-5 day (2 runs) in helping his winning effort on the mound. Ben Wrasman, the number 9 hitter, was 3-for-4 (2 runs batted in), third man Troy Warnecke was 3-for-5, seventh batter T.J. Hoersten (who also pitched in the seventh inning) was 2-for-2 (2 runs) and second man Ryan Buescher went 2-for-5 (2 RBIs). The Blue Jays (7-13, 3-3-5 MAC) fanned four times. “It was a good all-around game. We hit the ball well tonight; I feel like we are starting to play to our potential,” St. John’s coach Ryan Warnecke noted. “We have strung together a few games now where we are putting the ball in play and stringing hits together. Curt pitched well for the conditions and we played good defense behind him. Again, it was an all-around complete game for us.” St. John’s visits Ottoville 5 p.m. Monday. ST.

Boecker’s home run hit the top of the left-field fence and fell over for the Big Green’s first run. Horstman’s shot was hit almost the same place as Boecker’s but looked like Lancer junior leftfielder Eli Farmer had a bead on it, only to have it hit in his glove at the same time he collided with the fence, sending the ball over the fence upon impact. Farmer laid on the ground for nearly 10 minutes, shaken from the collision with the fence, and eventually was taken out of the game for precautionary measures by head coach Kevin Longstreth. The Big Green mounted one more threat in the bottom of the sixth inning when Boecker led off with a single. Trent Miller, pinch-running for Boecker, was quickly erased off the basepaths when Horstman grounded into a double play. Hohlbein got a 2-out infield hit and made it all the way to third on a throwing error by the Lancers. Sophomore pinch-hitter Kyle Bendele sent a blooper between the pitching mound and second base that the Lancers were unable to make the play on, allowing Hohlbein to score and cutting the lead to 7-3 for the visitors. Starting pitcher Youtsey pitched the entire game and picked up the win for the Lancers. Weber could only retire one batter that he faced in the first inning and suffered the loss for the Big Green. Hohlbein pitched the last 6 2/3 innings and did a great job, only allowing one more Lancer run to score. Leeth and Richey led the Lancers with two hits on the evening and Williams scored two of his team’s seven runs for the game. Boecker and Horstman led the Big Green with two hits apiece. The Lancers (8-12) are right back in action today as they start tournament play against Spencerville at Crestview for a 11 o’clock start; they visit New Knoxville 5 p.m. Wednesday (tentative) in regular action.

Tigers beat Indians, 10-4, behind Fielder, Cabrera
AP Baseball Writer DETROIT (AP) — Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera each hit a long home run, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 10-4 on Friday night. The Tigers scored three runs in the second and three more in the fourth. Fielder’s third-inning solo shot landed just below the No. 42 honoring Jackie Robinson on the brick facade beyond the wall in right-center field, giving Detroit a 4-1 lead. Cabrera’s three-run homer the following inning landed below Hank Greenberg’s retired No. 5 in left-center at Comerica Park.

but we knew we could do the best we have done here before and we did that. The girls did a great job. The girls ran PRs all over the place and hopefully we can continue you that in a couple of weeks.” Fort Jennings finished with over 130 points in the meet which is a new high for them at the PCL. Their previous best was 122 points according to coach Horstman. While the Ottoville girls did not make a strong run for the title, coach Vaughn Horstman was pleased with what his squad did at the meet. “We looked good,” Horstman said. “We had a lot of PRs and that’s what you want to see. At this point of the season you are still trying to get better with the tournament coming up in a couple of weeks.” Taylor Mangas was one athlete Horstman mentioned as she ran well in the 100 and 300 hurdles and ran a strong opening leg in the 1600 Relay. Columbus Grove’s boys team also got off to a strong start in the field events as Dakota Vogt won the discus, Collin Grothaus the pole vault and Trevor Schroeder the shot put. The Bulldogs had double placements in these events and the ones they did win to give them a comfortable margin heading to the track. “I think our depth paid off,” Grove coach Chris Grothaus said. “We have a lot of seniors and are going to miss them next season, but I was pleased with what I saw from some of our younger kids tonight. It seems like that is a trend for us to get off to a good start in the field events. It’s been a staple for us and our program and I give my assistants a lot of the credit for that.” On the track the Bulldogs continued to build their lead as Derek Rieman won the 110 hurdles and Collin Grothaus the 300 hurdles. One of the highlights for the night was senior Jake Graham in the 3200 meter run as he set a new meet record of 9:39.9 to win the event. “We were relaxed once we got on the track,” Grouhaus said. “The guys really took care of business. After the field events, I think they knew we were kind of in control. They ran well. They put up some good numbers and times.” The Ottoville boys also performed well Friday night on their home track. “The kids really stepped up,” Ottoville coach Ryan Horstman said. “On the tarck we did as well as we have done all year. It was really impressive and my pole vaults did a good job as did our senior high jumper. We were pretty strong all the way through and the boys like to come out and perform before the home crowd.” Complete results of the meet were not available as of presstime.

Phillips leads Reds past Brewers
AP Baseball Writer Detroit’s Max Scherzer (5-0) allowed four runs and five hits in eight innings. He struck out seven without a walk. Corey Kluber (2-2) allowed eight runs and 11 hits in 4 2-3 innings. Andy Dirks also homered for the Tigers, and Omar Infante had three hits, including two doubles. Jhonny Peralta doubled twice as well. CINCINNATI (AP) — Brandon Phillips homered and made a spectacular rally-busting play — using his left knee to get a forceout and start a double play — as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 on Friday night. Phillips had an RBI single off Yovani Gallardo (3-2) and added a solo homer in the seventh after making a saving play in the top of the inning. With two Brewers aboard, he got to Ryan Braun’s grounder up the middle, tagged second base with his left knee while falling down and threw to first for a double play. The Reds won for the fifth time in seven games. Cincinnati is 14-6 at Great American Ball Park, the most home wins in the majors.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES DIVISION OF WILDLIFE Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report! CENTRAL OHIO Alum Creek Lake (Delaware County) - This 3,192-acre lake north of Columbus is now a good bet for crappie, white bass and channel catfish. Fishing jigs and minnows suspended by a float around woody cover in the upper end of the lake and in coves is a good way to catch crappie; these must be 9 inches-plus to keep. Use minnows, jigs and small spinners in the upper end of the lake north of Howard Road when seeking white bass, which are also available in the creek itself (at Kilbourne). The area above Howard Road has good numbers of channel catfish; use cut shad for best results. Rush Creek Lake (Fairfield County) - Fish this small, secluded lake northeast of Lancaster for crappie, largemouth bass and channel catfish. Crappies are located around woody structure; try minnows or crappie jigs suspended under a bobber for the best success. As water temperatures warm, fish will move into shallower water. Largemouth bass can be caught using creature and tube baits around woody stickups. For catfish, fish the east end of the lake around woody cover using nightcrawlers and cut bait for the best results Outboard motors are limited to 10 HP or less. NORTHWEST OHIO Blanchard River (Hardin County) - Smallmouth bass are biting throughout the day; try below the Township Road 183 bridge. Anglers have been having the best success on light-colored rooster tails. As with most river fishing this time of year, success is highly influenced by levels. Ferguson Reservoir (Allen County) - Crappie have been biting at this 305-acre site located on Reservoir Road on the east side of Lima. Anglers have been having the best success in the mornings and evenings; try along the east/north bank near the boat ramp with jigs or slip bobbers with minnows or wax worms underneath. The reservoir has a primitive boat ramp and boats are restricted to electric motors. Norwalk Reservoir #2 (Huron County) - Located southeast of the city of Norwalk on Old State Road and SR 18, 2 miles north of SR 250, crappie, yellow perch and bluegill should be biting now; try the structure located along the south bank using slip bobbers tipped with wax worms and minnows. There is a boat ramp located on the south bank; however, boats must be registered with the city and owners must pay an annual fee. Boats are limited to electric motors only. Maumee River — Water temperature is 63 degrees; the water level is at normal levels and clarity is average. Bluegrass Island is accessible at this time. Fishing effort is medium, with anglers still catching a few limits of walleye at this time, though the run is winding down. The white bass fishing is still picking up and good numbers are being caught; anglers use jigs, spinners or worms fished under a bobber all over the river. Sandusky River: Water temperature is 63 degrees; water level is normal and clarity is average to good. Fishing effort is high. Walleye fishing is slow; anglers may still find some in the river for the next week or so but the run is over. White bass fishing is excellent — the run is near its peak — with large numbers being caught; anglers use jigs, spinners or worms fished under a bobber, with all areas of the river producing good numbers of large fish. For both rivers: Do NOT keep any walleye shorter than 15 inches and the bag limit is now 6 fish; please take a ruler with you. Black bass cannot be possessed until June 28th. For local information for the Maumee River, call the Perrysburg Chamber of Commerce (419-874-9147); for the Sandusky River, call the Sandusky County Visitors Bureau (419-332-4470). For fishing report info, check the Ohio DOW web page at www.wildohio. com or call: 800-WILDLIFE, 800-BUCKEYE, 888-HOOKFISH or Wildlife District Two at 419-424-5000. NORTHEAST OHIO Portage Lakes (Summit County) - Bass are in various stages of spawning at this popular chain. Pre-spawn fish are moving into near-shore weedbeds, where they can be caught on soft plastics such as tube jigs and lizards; these can be located visually on their beds, while post-spawn fish will move to drop-offs near spawning habitat to recover. Don’t be afraid to try bigger baits at this time of year to tempt larger fish. LaDue Reservoir (Geauga County) - The bite has been hot for a variety of species at this picturesque, electric-motors-only lake. Crappie have been biting well near the causeways, taking minnows under a bobber or on perch rigs fished off the bottom. Walleye are turning on as well, taking trolled crankbaits. The walleye population has one of the best size-structures in the area, so look for them to run larger than average. Northern Pike are also occasionally being caught; try large spinner/crank baits, or minnow baits for these toothy

predators. Finally, sunfish are moving near to the shoreline; the classic bobber and worm rig is producing good catches near fallen trees and other cover. Highlandtown Lake (Columbiana County) - Anglers are encountering good numbers of spawning bass at this wildlife-area lake; try spinnerbaits and bass jigs (brown/black and blue) at the western end, near lilly pads and flooded timber. Consider using braided line to horse bass out of this heavy cover. Downstream, probing structure such as points and the submerged road bed can also pay off. Channel catfish have also been active here, often surprising crappie or sunfish anglers fishing minnows and worms. SOUTHEAST OHIO Lake White (Pike County) - As the temperatures warm, anglers can expect good catches of bluegill in the 333-acre lake; try trolling a small spinner bait, which can help you cover a larger area in a shorter time and hopefully lead you to where the fish are congregated, then set up in that location. However, a simple worm fished under a bobber in about 2 feet of water in the cove area should be successful. Channel cats can also be found by fishing worms and cut bait on the bottom; the area near the park office has been a hotspot in recent years. Dow Lake (Athens County) - Anglers are still reeling in rainbow trout by the dam and near the beach area on artificial baits. Don’t limit yourself; there are lots of options that can prove successful for these trout: corn, cheese, small spinners and prepared baits. Crappie have also been biting; these active fish have a varied diet, so don’t limit yourself to one type of bait presentation. A popular rig is a small grub or minnow below a slip bobber which can be vertically jigged. Crappie have a thin mouth, so use a light rod and a light line so you can set the hook properly without pulling it out. SOUTHWEST OHIO East Fork Lake (Clermont County) - Anglers are reporting success on crappie using minnows and jigs with tubes; try chartreuse and white color patterns. They are generally being taken in 18-24 inches of water around structure, fallen trees and in the coves. Rocky Fork Lake (Highland County) - Anglers are reporting decent saugeye fishing; try crankbaits or troll with a Shad-Rap. Crappies are hitting between 3-4 feet; use black or chartreuse jigs and minnows. Bass are being taken with crankbaits in water 2-6 feet in depth. OHIO RIVER Racine Dam Area - Sauger, white bass and hybrid-striped bass can all be caught this time of year. Spinners and jigs can both be successful; white, pearl, chartreuse, orange and yellow twister tails have all been popular in recent years. Brown and Clermont counties - Fishing activity has been picking up. Sauger, white bass and hybrid-striped bass are all being caught. Spinners and jigs have both been successful; white, pearl, chartreuse, orange and yellow twister tails all seem to be popular. LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is 6 fish per angler; the minimum size limit is 15 inches. … The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. … The trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish per angler through Wednesday and increases to 5 through August 31; the minimum size

limit is 12 inches. … Black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) fishing is closed to possession (no harvest) through June 28; on June 29, the daily bag limit returns to 5 fish per angler with a 14” minimum size limit. Western Basin Walleye fishing was excellent at times over the past week (as of Tuesday). The best areas were W of South Bass Island, between Middle Bass and North Bass islands, N of North Bass Island and N of Kelleys Island. Trollers have been catching fish on crankbaits and worm harnesses; jigging has slowed down on the reefs and W of the reefs as the spawning season is ending. … Yellow perch have been caught N of Kelleys Island; perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Central Basin Walleye have been caught nearshore off Cleveland after 6 p.m. and at night in 10-15’ of water using rapalas, husky jerks and reef runners. … Yellow perch fishing has been fair to average in 36-50’ of water N of Gordon Park in Cleveland, in 36’ of water N of the Fairport Harbor lighthouse, in 38’ of water N of the Ashtabula lighthouse and also NW of Ashtabula in 60’ of water; perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Shore fishing has been spotty in the Cleveland area and off the Fairport Harbor Pier; anglers are using spreaders with shiners and the mornings have been best. … Smallmouth bass is picking up in 15-25’ of water around harbor areas in Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula and Conneaut; anglers are using drop-shot rigs with rubber worms, soft-craws, leeches, tube jigs and crank baits. … The water temperature is 56 degrees off of Toledo and 45 degrees off of Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine forecast.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, MAY 12, 2013 People like you, and chances are you have more friends than you realize. In the year ahead, good things could develop through several pals whom you’ve never fully appreciated. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -If you spend time searching for ways to increase your income, you will find numerous ways to do so. Make the most of them. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It is important to maintain as much control as you can over an arrangement in which you’re presently involved. Don’t hesitate to assert yourself if need be. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -You tend to get hunches all the time, but the ones you get today could be especially strong, enabling you to forecast the outcome of events with remarkable accuracy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Although your basic belief system might be tested, after you’ve had time to analyze things the results will end up reinforcing what you’ve always thought to be true. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Major objectives can be accomplished, so don’t waste your time on petty goals. Go after something truly important that will give you a real sense of achievement. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- There is no reason to give up on traditional methods that have proven successful in the past. Lady Luck is inclined to follow her same, familiar footsteps. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A significant change could be in the offing for a situation of vital importance. Don’t fret -- the winds will shift in your direction. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A partnership is likely to be more effective than an independent endeavor. Start forming alliances now. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You tend to be extremely successful when you’re prepared to work hard. Go ahead and put the pedal to the metal. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- A group endeavor could be in need of reorganization. Your ideas and advice could prove especially helpful. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Be nice to your neighbors, because something fortuitous could develop through a friendly acquaintance with one of them. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Don’t hesitate to think big, regardless of the scope of the project at hand. You shouldn’t have any trouble taking things as far as you want them to go. MONDAY, MAY 13, 2013 Although you might experience powerful, uncontrollable changes in the year ahead, don’t let these developments overwhelm you. Chances are, they’ll end up proving to be to your benefit. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Nothing worthwhile is likely to be accomplished if you’re too reluctant to compromise. It’ll be your loss -sometimes you need to bend to get what you want. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Though you will admirably want to help someone you see struggling, make sure that the person is legitimately in need of help. He or she may just be faking. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Complications will arise if you’re so adamant about having your way that you buck the will of the majority. Being the lone dissenter will make you stick out like a sore thumb. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be careful not to overplay your hand in a collective endeavor. Demanding things be done your way or loudly tooting your own horn could turn supporters into opponents. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Nothing will be gained by arguing with someone whose views differ radically from yours. To make matters worse, it might be about something that neither of you has the power to change. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -If you’re swimming in unfamiliar waters, make sure you have a firm grasp of what’s what. Someone could be trying to take advantage of you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Don’t make a major domestic decision before talking things over with your mate and/or family. Someone in the household might have a better picture of the situation than you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Someone who has neglected to thank you for a previous favor might once again seek your help. What you do is your business, but don’t look for a different ending. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Normally, you’re a pretty cautious person, but today someone might talk you into doing a favor for him or her against your better judgment. Be careful, not sorry. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Have some alternative plans in mind today, just in case you have to scrap your original objective. There’s a chance something might cause you to change course real fast. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Just because someone strong-willed is presenting something to you doesn’t mean you have to do what this person wants. Don’t be awed by his or her force. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you’re not careful, you could get yourself in trouble by giving more than you can materially or emotionally afford. Be careful not to overextend yourself in either case. COPYRIGHT 2013 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

Marquis West, who knows all three boys, said they had lived together with their moms for less than a year. “Every time we got together, they were always uplifting toward each other,” said West, an 18-year-old senior at Ottawa-Glandorf High School. West said he knew the three teens from playing basketball in a church league. The two brothers were especially close despite their age difference. “They were always together,” West said. “The only time they were separate was when they were on different teams.” Counselors were available in the district for students and staff members who might need help coping with the news. “I think everyone is trying to get through this difficult time in their own way,” Selgo said. The school posted a notice on its website Friday saying “our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Blake and Blaine.” Selgo said the 17-yearold in custody did not attend the high school. Fay was ordered held in the Wood County Juvenile Detention Center. A memorial fund has been established to help with funeral and burial expenses for Blake and Blaine Romes. Donations can be mailed to Romes Memorial Fund, P.O. Box 13, Leipsic, Ohio 45856 or donations for the fund can be made at any Huntington Bank location.

State Department sought to change Libya talking points
JULIE PACE Associated Press WASHINGTON — Political considerations influenced the talking points that U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice used five days after the deadly Sept. 11 assault in Benghazi, Libya, with State Department and other senior administration officials asking that references to terror groups and prior warnings be deleted, according to department emails. The latest disclosures Friday raised new questions about whether the Obama administration tried to play down any terrorist factor in the attack on a diplomatic compound just weeks before the November presidential election. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed when insurgents struck the U.S. mission in two nighttime attacks. The White House has insisted that it made only a “stylistic” change to the intelligence agency talking points from which Rice suggested on five Sunday talk shows that demonstrations over an anti-Islamic video devolved into the Benghazi attack. Numerous agencies had engaged in an email discussion about the talking points that would be provided to members of Congress and to Rice for their public comments. In one email, thenState Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland worried about the effect of openly discussing earlier warnings about the dangers of Islamic extremists in Benghazi. Nuland’s email said such revelations “could be abused by members of Congress to beat the State Department for not paying attention to (central intelligence) agency warnings,” according to a congressional official who reviewed the 100 pages of emails. The official spoke only on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly about the emails that still have not been released. The final talking points that weekend reflected the work of several government agencies — CIA, FBI, State Department, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence — apparently determined to cast themselves in the best light as the investigation was just getting underway. A scathing independent report in December found that “systematic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels” of the State Department meant that security was “inadequate

(Continued from page 1) Schulte suggests owners have their vehicles inspected and take advantage of a summer maintenance service. The service should include inspection of the cooling system; radiator, belts and hoses, coolant, cooling fans, water pump, and heater core; and critical driving components, tie rod ends, steering equipment, ball joints, refrigerant level, and compressor clutch. Pack an emergency kit that includes jumper cables, flashlight, first aid, flares, water, nonperishable food, extra washer fluid, basic tools, and bottled water. When loading the vehicle for a trip, remember to keep the driver’s visibility clear, bring less than is ‘necessary’ and keep snack items, cameras and the emergency kit on top of all the cargo for easy access.

for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.” Eight months after the attack, the long-running and bitter dispute between the Obama administration and congressional Republicans on the subject shows no sign of abating. The GOP argues that the administration deliberately tried to mislead Congress and the American people. The White House insists that Republicans are trying to politicize the issue. “There’s an ongoing effort to make something political out of this,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Friday of the disclosure of the emails, which the administration had provided to lawmakers. “The problem with that effort is that it’s never been clear what it is they think they’re accusing the administration of doing.” Republicans have complained that the administration was trying to conceal that the attack was the work of terrorists and not a protest over an anti-Islamic film that got out of hand. Such revelations just before the election perhaps could have undercut President Barack Obama’s record on fighting terrorism, including the killing of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden, one of his re-election strengths.

I tell them it’s for our Wounded Warriors…..I do it because men and women are getting shot at right now. There are men and women who are missing their loved ones with the thought of never seeing them again. We need to show our veterans that we are here and we love them. Thinking about what they are dealing with now makes running 10-12 miles and getting shocked in the mud not so bad. Mudder Nation supports our Warriors! We do it because Warriors are doing it! It’s all about the camaraderie. “People think that PTSD only happens in war…it’s an epidemic and happens all the time. When you see a veteran wearing their colors, say ‘Thank you!’ Shake their hand. You’ll be glad you did and they will be, too. “If anyone would like to do Tough Mudder, visit www. You will be glad you did. So will our Men and Women. “Hoorah” Steve Seven young men and one woman from the Ottawa– Glandorf area also took part in the event at Mansfield. They were: Brian Heringhaus, AJ Lammers, Doug Kimmet, Eric Blankemeyer, Matt Hanneman, Jeff Larger, Colleen Palte and Bart Lammers. Kimmet (his family originated in Delphos) summed up his feeling in this manner: “This event is definitely a team effort rather than an individual effort. As a team, we helped each other make it through all of the obstacles and finish the race. The course was very difficult but that made finishing it that much more gratifying.” He suggested that those who are interested look up the web site The Wounded Warriors need our prayers and support. Thank you to all veterans! Answers to Friday’s questions: Camel cigarettes were once advertised with the slogan, “More doctors smoke [this brand] than any other cigarette.” Nautically speaking, a moonraker and a skyscraper are both sails. A moonraker is a small, light square sail that is set above the skysail on a square-rigged ship in light winds. If the sail is triangular, it’s called a skyscraper.
