DELPHOS—Korean War veteran Elmer Dickman, 84, was among those saluted this past April with a trip to Washington, D.C., on the Honor Flight out of Dayton. One of Dickman’s favorite parts of the Honor Flight was coming off the plane and being welcomed by servicemen. “There were at least a hundred of them and they all wanted to shake hands with us,” he said. “They were playing the bagpipes and by the time I was done, I felt like my hand was paralyzed. Then the big shots got up on the stage and said a few words.” While in Washington, D.C., Dickman got the opportunity to see the many memorials and share in camaraderie. One face in particular has stayed with him, that of the young volunteer who stayed by his side. “His name was Max, I can’t recall his last name. He’s from Kettering and graduates this year. He stayed with me all day and he was right there if I wanted to get up and look around,” Dickman said. “He made the Honor Flight possible; worked the last couple of years collecting money. He raised $92,800 total, and the honor flight cost $30,000. Everyone enjoyed him; he was always smiling. You don’t meet too many kids like that these days.” The experience gave him a chance to share his war stories, some he tells fondly and some he keeps off the record. He remembers the day he got his orders with crystal clarity, as it was shortly after he married his wife, Mary. “It was 1951 and we got married on Jan. 3. We went to Canada for our honeymoon; we were back by Jan. 13,” he said. “Then on Jan. 16, I went to see mom and she told me there was a brown envelope waiting for me and said, ‘This doesn’t look good.’ It was my induction papers.” Dickman was in Korea for six months and three days, most of which he spent without a roof over his head. “We slept on the ground; no roofs and no tents,” he said. “Mess gear, our forks and spoons and bowls, wasn’t necessary enough to carry with us, so we would eat out of our helmets. We would take the lining out and just eat out of the outer metal part. “Usually we would eat things like corned beef hash but I remember one time we were going down the line, grabbing a biscuit and some other things and when we got down to the end they had a ladle for you to pour soup over it all, in your helmet,” he continued. “Boy, you want to talk about a bunch of guys cussing. They liked to keep you bitter.” See DICKMAN, page 10

Neighbors collaborate on ‘tree’
A love for annual flowers spawned the collaboration of the live artwork between neighbors Kenny and Edith Wieging and Terri and Mike Grubenhoff. The petunia “tree,” located between the neighbor’s houses at 528 and 532 S. Main St., is constructed of welded metal arms with rings at the ends to hold the nine pots of flowers, which must be watered every day and fertilized once a week. This is the second year the live artwork has been on display and at night, it is highlighted with a spotlight. (Delphos Herald/Stephanie Groves)

The restrictions will allow crews to place pavement striping and move concrete barrier wall in preparation for the reconstruction of the ramps at the Fourth Street interchange. The restrictions could begin as early at 7 a.m. · Until the barrier wall is moved, temporary closures of the northbound exit and southbound entrance ramps at Fourth Street and Interstate 75 will be necessary as well today. Only one ramp at a time will be closed beginning as early as 7 a.m. The northbound exit ramp will be the first to close and is expected to reopen by noon. The southbound entrance ramp is expected to reopen early evening. · The ramp closures are not expected to significantly impact traffic for the Ohio National Championship Motorcycle Races today at the fairgrounds as the ramps will be open by the conclusion of the event. · Traffic wishing to enter northbound or southbound I-75 will be directed to enter at the Ohio 117/309 interchange. Message boards will be placed at Fourth Street directing traffic to enter at Ohio 117/309. · Beginning July 8, the I-75 northbound entrance and exit ramps at Fourth Street will be closed for reconstruction. The ramps are expected to reopen prior to the Allen County fair which begins August 16. · Occasional nighttime lane closures will continue on Interstate 75 throughout the zone from Fourth Street to Ohio 81 generally from 7 p.m. until approximately 10 a.m. the following day. Normal traffic patterns of two lanes in each direction will resume during daytime hours. · Motorists should be aware that all entrance and exit ramp merge areas have been shortened throughout the project area. Drivers on Interstate 75 are encouraged to use the passing lane through the zone if they do not wish to exit. Signs advising this have been placed throughout the project area. Interstate 75 between Fourth Street and Ohio 81 in Lima will have occasional nighttime lane restrictions during reconstruction of the existing lanes of pavement, replacement of mainline bridges and reconstruction of the interchanges.

Those Were The Days ...
What are the odds?
I’ve only had the chance to play golf one time this year, but am hoping to play more often. I still enjoy the game although I’m not very good at it anymore. Recently I came across a photo of me holding the golf ball that I made my first hole-in-one with. A search on Google tells me that Golf Digest says the statistical probability of an amateur making a hole in one are 1 in 12,750. The odds of me making my first hole-in-one and the way it happened have to be astronomical. In the summer of 1979, my wife’s twin brother, Jack, and I were partners in our company’s golf league. I was the “A” player and Jack was the “B” player. Although Jack was a better ball striker than me, I was a good scrambler and had a good short game. As a result, although we played together often, Jack had never scored a round lower than mine. For example, we were playing a round at a course in Canton, Ohio, and Jack scored an impressive 38 on the first nine holes. However, I had the best nine holes of my life and scored a 33! That’s the way it always went. If Jack was playing great, I was playing better. If I was playing poorly, Jack was even worse. But “bragging rights” changed to Jack’s favor when he made a hole-in-one that was witnessed by his brother, Brett, who he was playing with. Jack couldn’t wait to tell me all about it. “You can’t imagine how good it felt to see that ball go in the hole. You don’t know how good it feels to make a hole in one!” My response was, “No, Jack, you’re right. I can’t imagine how good it feels to make a hole-inone because I’ve never made one.” Jack was “rubbing it in” every chance he got! He would describe how he was standing at the fifth hole at South Hills Golf Course; how he took out his pitching wedge on the 100yard hole; how he took a smooth swing; how the ball hit to the left of the green (just the way he played it) kicked onto the sloping left to right green and rolled right into the hole. Although he was getting annoying bragging about it, I liked Jack and was happy for him. Jack had the “upper hand.” No doubt about it. But that would all change one week later. Brett challenged me to a round of golf at the same golf course. I brought my two sons, Mike and John, and my nephew, Jerry, to watch us play. We played the first four holes and since no one was behind us on the course, I let the boys practice putting while Brett and I walked to the fifth tee. Since Brett had witnessed Jack’s hole-in-one a week earlier on the hole we were about to play, I asked him to describe Jack’s reaction. Brett called it a lucky shot and talked

... With a side of fishflies Hiring Ohio workers first
So I’m looking forward to a little less hectic weekend. Last weekend was busy, busy, busy. Fresh off an awesome Relay for Life, Ringo, my man and I headed to Leisure Park for a little Bark for Life action. Ringo of course, was super excited. He loves, loves, loves other dogs. He just wants to meet them and play and run. Alpha is no where in his vocabulary. He’s a player, not a fighter, and he doesn’t care who does what as long as he gets to do something. After a steamy lap around the park for the guys, we all piled back in the car and headed to Michigan for our friend Steve’s graduation party. After a lot of hard work and a lot of patience from his wife, Jill, Steve-o got his master’s degree. Whoot, whoot. When we arrived, the first thing we noticed were the fish flies. We had some experience with these pesky critters a few years ago but not to the extent we were about to. They were everywhere! Just hangin’ off stuff and lookin’ creepy. Hundreds, maybe thousands. Ugh! Bugs! Why? Fishflies hatch each summer from eggs buried in the mud. They are around for about 4-5 days and then gone. The insects mate, lay eggs and die within 24 hours. The cycle continues several time over. You have no idea unless you’ve come across the fishfly frenzy personally. Steve kept telling us fishfly facts such as they like the color white (the color of our car). We got Steve a bug zapper as a graduation gift and he promptly plugged her in and let her go. Zap, zap, zap. Zaaaaaaaaaap. Yeah! We spent the evening celebrating, had a great time and even managed to laugh about

the plague besieging us. Steve teased us that all the fishflies on our car were going to hang on all the way back to Ohio screaming, “Jay! Nancy! Take us home to the canal!” My husband and I took turns checking each other out to make sure we didn’t have any guests hanging on us. When we settled in the camper for the evening, my husband cocooned himself in a quilt, saying, “No fishflies gonna get me!” I chose a sheet because it was warm outside and inside the camper and we weren’t opening the flaps just in case the fishflies knew a way in. About an hour or so after I fell asleep, I awoke with a start. I was covered in a white sheet! OMG! Fishflies like the color white! I carefully lifted my head to see if I was covered in fishflies. What would I do if I was? Whew. No fishflies. We didn’t see too many of our friends on Sunday but managed to still have a few on the car when we got home. She was washed and shined on Monday. On Tuesday, I was scrubbing out the kitchen sink. When I lifted the mat, there was a fishfly! What the …? How the …?
WASHINGTON — The trial of George Zimmerman, accused of fatally shooting Trayvon Martin, inevitably and quickly devolved into a contest of who is more racist — the victim or the accused? The question was inevitable because the prosecution is basing its case largely on the suggestion that Zimmerman profiled the 17-year-old AfricanAmerican, allegedly deciding he was a potential threat by virtue of his race. This assumption was somewhat complicated Thursday during testimony by 19-year-old Rachel Jeantel, a friend of Martin’s who was talking to him by cellphone shortly before he was shot. Sidebar: Poor Jeantel. Whether she is a credible witness will be determined by the jury, but the rest of us really ought to cut the girl some slack. She is young, obviously playing on alien turf and having a tough-enough time on the witness stand without further commentary. She may, indeed, be the best argument yet for keeping cameras out of the courtroom, but that is another discussion. Jeantel’s contribution to the race discussion included a quote she attributed to Martin when he told her a “creepy-ass cracker” was watching him. No doubt Zimmerman did seem creepy. He was following Martin after all, who, as far as anyone knows with certainty, was merely walking home from a convenience store. Does Martin’s use of “cracker” mean he
N-word vs. cracker
Point of View
was a racist and, therefore, may have instigated the struggle that, according to the defense, compelled Zimmerman to shoot Martin in self-defense? Jeantel told defense attorney Don “Knock-Knock” West that, no, she doesn’t consider “cracker” a racist term. Apparently, most whites don’t either. In street interviews aired Thursday, CNN found that whites are not as offended by the term “cracker” as they are by the N-word. For the record, there’s no evidence that Zimmerman ever used the N-word. He is captured on tape saying “F — ing punks” and “These a — holes, they always get away.” Is he talking about blacks? Teens wearing hoods? Burglars, some number of whom recently had been targeting his neighborhood? Only conjecture produces a strictly racist interpretation. So what about “cracker?” Is it ever or always an insult? And what might we infer by Martin’s use of it to describe his pursuer? Merriam-Webster defines cracker as: usually disparaging: a poor usually Southern white; capitalized: a native or resident of Florida or Georgia — used as a nickname. But the best explana-
tion of crackers can be found in “The Cracker Kitchen,” a cookbook and story collection by novelist and proud cracker Janis Owens. It is a both a cultural defense and literary critique of the poor, white folks whence Owens (and most of us Scots-Irish) came — an unfrilly valentine pressed between recipes for fried frog legs and baked armadillo. The daughter of a fire-breathing Pentecostal preacher, Owens traces “cracker” to William Shakespeare’s “The Life and Death of King John:” “What cracker is this same that deafe our eares with this abundance of superfluous breath?” Now there’s an invective worth memorizing for future hurling. Native-born to Florida’s panhandle, aka Alabama’s Riviera, Owens has embraced her crackerhood and uses the term endearingly, just as AfricanAmericans often use the N-word, recovered from racist whites, to refer to one another. Similarly, Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues” includes a chapter celebrating the C-word, effectively stealing it back from those who use it to denigrate women. Reclaiming ownership of an offensive word is a revolutionary act that strips the term of its power to wound. Call it linguistic disarmament. For those needing a refresher course, here are just a few reasons why cracker doesn’t compare to the N-word. Cracker has never been used routinely to: — Deny a white person a seat at the lunch counter; — Systematically deny whites the right to vote; — Deny a white person a seat near the front of a bus; — Crack the skulls of peaceful white protesters marching for equality; — Blow up a church and kill four little white girls; Need more? Didn’t think so. Cracker may be a pejorative in some circles. It may even be used to insult a white person. But it clearly lacks the grievous, historical freight of the other. Martin’s use of the term “cracker” doesn’t make him a racist any more than Zimmerman’s resentment of “punks” necessarily makes him a murderous racial profiler. These words, and the case built upon them, ultimately may prove little more than an abundance of superfluous breath. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.
The United States is a nation of immigrants. From the transcontinental railroad to today’s technological advancements on the information superhighway, immigrants have helped to build our nation. The solution to the immigration challenges we face won’t be simple, but now is the time to take a commonsense approach to immigration reform. That means ensuring that the immigration bill is also a jobs bill — one that gives American workers a fair chance at fair wage jobs. At recent roundtables in Columbus, Cleveland, Dayton and Toledo, I’ve been asking Ohioans their immigration reform priorities. There is almost unanimous agreement that we must fix our broken immigration policy. The bipartisan Senate plan finishes the job of securing our borders. It also creates a fair, but thorough pathway to citizenship for the millions of undocumented immigrants that require them. It also creates an employment verification system — to crack down on employers who are hiring workers without documentation — that prevents identity theft, and brings jobs out of the shadows. But while the proposal we’re debating on the Senate floor is a critical step forward, I believe there are ways we can improve it further so our immigration policy is also a good jobs policy. That means ensuring that American companies seek out skilled American workers before seeking visas for foreign workers. Right now, the H-1B program serves an important, but specific purpose. When American employers cannot find the technical workers essential to their operations, businesses can recruit foreign workers through this visa. But we need to make sure foreign workers aren’t being hired at the expense of Americans. That’s why Senator Grassley (R-IA) and I introduced a bipartisan bill called the H-1B
and L-1 Visa Fraud and Abuse Prevention Act of 2013. Our bill requires employers to make good faith efforts to hire Americans first and much of it was included in the immigration bill under Senate consideration. Our work Brown helped ensure that the immigration bill included a provision to require that employers to give American workers the first crack at a job opportunity before it can be filled with a visa holder. But during committee debate of the bill, our provision was altered so that employers now only have to take steps to recruit American workers they no longer have to give hiring preference to equally or better qualified American workers and can instead seek a visa for the foreign worker. It is counterproductive to require employers to engage in additional recruiting steps designed to attract qualified U.S. workers without also requiring them to hire these workers if they apply. If there are qualified Ohioans who can do the work, there is no need to fill a post with an H-1B worker. That’s why I’ve introduced an amendment to the immigration bill that will improve hiring practices of companies that temporarily hire foreign workers in specialty occupations. Our bipartisan amendment requires H-1B employers to first offer a position to an equally or better qualified American worker before seeking a visa to offer it to a foreign worker. H-1B workers make a valuable contribution to our nation, but they should be hired when there is a demonstrable need not at the expense of a qualified Ohio worker is are ready, willing, and able to do a job.
DEAR EDITOR: I oppose so-called “right to work” legislation because it’s misguided and harmful to workers and the middle class. The same CEOs and corporate interests who brought you Senate Bill 5 are supporting these dangerous attacks on workers. Just like SB 5, these policies put profits before people and are an unsafe, unfair attack on us all. The far-reaching consequences of these policies are clear: in states where workers’ rights are denied, workplace fatalities are 36 percent higher and household incomes are $6,437 a year less than other states. Our everyday heroes like firefighters, police officers, teachers, nurses and many others deserve fair wages and safe working conditions, not policies that will lower their pay and compromise their safety. So-called “right to work” is wrong — don’t trust it. Mike Edelbrock Delphos DEAR EDITOR: I am writing today to update everyone on things happening in Congress that will affect the Postal Service and its customers. My last letter I urged everyone to contact their congressmen concerning the harmful effects H.R. 2309 would have on the Postal Service and also our customers. H.R. 2309 would have mandated a massive round of post office closings, eliminated Saturday delivery, laid off approximately 40 to 50 thousand workers, cut health benefits, gutted our collective bargaining rights and eliminated door delivery among other things. To those who called or wrote their congressmen, thank you. I wrote Rep. Jim Jordan and his response to me was that “The problems range from too many facilities, to an excess of labor, to an ineffective pricing system.” He said that “There are over 150,000 USPS employees who qualify for retirement right now but are still collecting a paycheck.” He also spoke of other reforms in the bill including “the option to go to five-day delivery, to revise labor agreements and require all mail customers transition over a two-year period to begin receiving their mail at curbside boxes or cluster boxes instead of delivery to their door.” By reading his letter I took it to believe that he was in favor of this bill, especially the things I have written about. I responded back to him regarding these things and said that maybe employees did not retire because they either loved what they were doing or couldn’t afford to in this economy and if we should be forced to retire, then shouldn’t Congress be held to the same standards as there were several congressmen working well into their 70s and 80s? Regarding the eliminating of door-to-door delivery I mentioned customers on our routes who are in wheelchairs and cannot walk, or elderly who have much difficulty getting around and to please tell me how I was supposed to tell them that they would have to walk several blocks away to get their mail and if he would feel comfortable asking his friends and relatives to do the same? This was sent in January 2012 and to date I have not received a reply. In all fairness, he may have misplaced my letter. I hope he read it and sees the drastic effects those type of changes would have on people. The author of last year’s H.R. 2309, Rep. Darrel Issa, R-Ca., has released a postal reform “discussion draft” to gather input from stakeholders and his colleagues in Congress before turning the draft into a bill. In this draft, he is once again exploring eliminating a day of delivery, eliminating door-to-door delivery, and closing rural post offices and services among other things. To his credit, he has offered to eliminate the congressional mandate that was forced on the USPS by Congress in 2006 to pay into the US Treasury $5.5 billion to pre-fund future retiree health benefits. This mandate has been the main reason the USPS is in such dire financial conditions. It has accounted for 80 -90 percent of our debt. We applaud him for this offer, but these other things I just mentioned have to be removed as well. Please call your congressmen and ask them to NOT support this legislation if it includes eliminating a day of delivery, eliminating delivery to your door or closing the rural post offices. Our local Congressmen’s phone numbers are: Rep. Jim Jordan (202) 225-2676 for those in the 4th Congressional district and Rep.Bob Latta (202) 225-6405 for those in the 5th Congressional district. Thank you, Chuck Shumaker Steward Br. 182 Delphos

Wildcats erupt for ACME triumph over ‘Dawgs
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org ELIDA — Elida scored the first two runs of its ACME baseball game Friday versus Jefferson. It was all Wildcats after that as they rallied in a big way for an 11-2 triumph at Ed Sandy Memorial Field. The Wildcats got a runner to third in the top of the first — Jace Stockwell (3-for-5, 2 runs) — with a 1-down throwing error and a groundout by Hunter Binkley but no farther. The Bulldogs got to Binkley (5 innings, 6 hits, 2 earned runs, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts; 80 pitches, 54 strikes) in the bottom of the first. With one out, Austin Morrison, Travis Watkins (3-for-4), Logan Frysinger and Kyle Hambleton had consecutive base hits, the last two knocking in Morrison and Watkins. The Red and White got runners on first and third to lead off the second: an error on Gage Mercer’s (2-for-5, 2 runs batted in) grounder and a walk to Jordan Herron (3 walks); but they were left there as Elida starter Hambleton (6 2/3 innings, 11 hits, 11 runs, 3 earned, 3 walks, 6 Ks; 135 pitches, 83 for strikes) struck out the next three. The Wildcats took the lead for good with a 3 spot in the third. Josh Teman (2 runs) and Stockwell had back-to-back triples to left to lead it off. Binkley’s bouncer scored Stockwell; an error allowed the batter to be safe. He stole second, advanced on a grounder by Tyler Talboom and scored on a miscue on the sequence. Mercer sliced a single to left, Herron walked and an out later, Ryan Bullinger walked to load the sacks. However, they became three of the 11 men left on base. Elida had a 2-out chop single to center and a throwing error on Hambleton’s grounder but could not score. Binkley beat out an infield hit to short with two outs in the fourth. The visitors made it 4-2 in the fifth. With one down, Herron walked, stole second and scored on a 2-out throwing error on a grounder hit by Ryan Goergens. The Orange and Black had a threat in the home half. With one gone, Morrison
walked and Watkins singled to left. An out later, on a 3-2 count and the runners going, Hambleton grounded to third and Herron tagged out Morrison. Jefferson made it 5-2 in the sixth. A throwing error on Teman’s grounder got him aboard. He burgled second and moved up on Stockwell’s single to left. Stockwell was thrown out by Watkins trying to snatch second but another error on Binkley’s grounder plated Teman. Delphos finished it with a 6-run seventh by sending 11 to the plate. Herron’s shot to center got it rolling. He stole second, went to third on an error on the play and came home as Damien Dudgeon singled to left. Goergens was safe on an error and the runners pulled off a steals. An out hence, Teman launched a sacrifice fly to center to get Dudgeon home for a 7-2 spread. Stockwell was safe on a bad-hop infield single and Jake Pulford singled Goergens home. Tyler Talboom doubled to right center to get Stockwell home and put Pulford at third. That finished Hambleton and Mercer greeted reliever Garrett Brinkman with a 2-run knock to left for the final runs. Elida tried to get something going against reliever Talboom, in his second frame of work. With one gone, Josh Bull ripped a knock to left and Morrison walked. Watkins singled to left but strayed too far off third rounding the base and was tagged out by Herron on an alert throw by leftfielder Dudgeon. Frysinger forced Watkins at second to end the game.

Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report! CENTRAL OHIO Alum Creek Lake (Delaware County) - This 3,192-acre lake north of Columbus can provide action all summer long. As water temperatures increase, fish have moved to deeper water. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are being caught off of main and secondary points with crankbaits and spinner baits. Trolling worm harnesses or crankbaits close to the bottom along points can produce saugeye, especially at dawn and dusk. Muskie can provide good action this time of year; troll crank baits along the points and dam. Kiser Lake (Champaign County) - Largemouth bass, hybrid-striped bass and sunfish are all active now in this western Champaign County lake. Largemouth bass up to five pounds can be caught around aquatic vegetation and wood using plastics and crank baits. Hybrids are being caught; use chicken liver fished on the bottom. Sunfish are found throughout but can be concentrated on the north shore; try nightcrawlers, wax worms or crickets under a bobber for relaxing summer fishing. No motors allowed. NORTHWEST OHIO Auglaize River (Defiance County) - Just below the power dam, people are catching good numbers of both channel catfish with the occasional large flathead catfish mixed in; try cut baits, chicken livers and nightcrawlers. Killdeer Plains Pond #33 (Wyandot County) - This pond is located northeast of the village of Marseilles, a mile east of SR 67 on former CR 75. Anglers have been having good luck catching channel catfish; the best successes have come early in the morning in the northwest corner of the pond using nightcrawlers. The pond has a boat ramp with a floating dock; boats are limited to 10-HP motors. Shore fishing is available from the dike and piers; wading along the north shore is also popular. Paulding Reservoir (Paulding County) - This 67-acre site is located at Reservoir Park in the village of Paulding. It provides good opportunities for anglers pursuing saugeye this time of year; try fishing the wave washed shorelines, casting jigs with twister tails, still-fishing with leaches and slip bobbers, or trolling worm harnesses. Only boats 16 feet or less may be used. Electric motors may be used but no gasoline engines are allowed; a $2 lifetime “boat license” is required from the village. NORTHEAST OHIO Mogadore Reservoir (Portage County) - The catfish bite has fired up. Shoreline anglers near Lansinger Road and the 43 fishing pier have taken good numbers on raw shrimp and cut baits; focus on low light periods with slip-sinker rigs. Largemouth bass have also been biting well at low light. LaDue Reservoir (Geauga County) - Walleye continue to bite well, with anglers targeting offshore structure; trolling worm harnesses has been the hot ticket, with numbers of bonus channel catfish also being caught. Crappie have been biting well on minnows around the 422 bridge. Sunfish have also been active, taking wax worms in 2-4 feet of water. Highlandtown Lake (Columbiana County) - The off-shore bass bite really fired up last weekend. Anglers fishing the old roadbed across the middle of the lake have encountered schooling fish, periodically catching excellent numbers; try casting fast-moving lures like spinner/crank baits to provoke aggressive strikes. Bluegill have also been biting well near shore, with wax worms or nightcrawlers under bobbers producing consistent action. Tappan Lake (Harrison County) - The saugeye action has been turning on at this popular fishery recently; anglers are taking fish over 20 inches on worm harnesses around the marina. Channel catfish have also been biting well in this area. The bass bite has been steady, with fish taking spinner baits during lowlight and transitioning to soft plastics and jigs by 7 a.m. Worms and bobbers fished around deep pockets near shore are taking sunfish; smaller crappie have been available along fallen trees. SOUTHEAST OHIO Jackson Lake (Jackson County) - Bluegill can be caught throughout the lake until fall. Preferred baits are generally wax worms and nightcrawlers under a bobber; these fish are popular with both shore and boat anglers. Bass can also be found but may be harder to catch this time of year but spinner baits and tube baits have proved most successful in the past; try early morning and late night to take advantage of the cooler temperatures. Catfish angling should also be in full swing. Nightcrawlers, chicken livers or prepared catfish baits work well when fished on the bottom. Located approximately two miles west of Oak Hill, this 251-acre lake is accessible off SR 279, as well as Tommy Been Road. Wolf Run Lake (Noble County) - While other anglers are catching bluegill and catfish this time of year, head here for something different - crappie! The fish are plentiful in this lake and the pressure to catch them is relatively low; try live minnows in 10 feet of water or deeper near steep drop-offs and ledges. If your minnows are fading quickly because of the heat, try a tube bait. Don’t forget that crappie have a very thin mouth and it doesn’t take much to set the hook; if you feel a bite, just start reeling in and the strike is usually enough to set the hook. Largemouth bass can also be fun to catch this time of year; try casting crankbaits and plastics in 10 feet of water or less along the weedline. SOUTHWEST OHIO Acton Lake (Preble County) - Channel catfish are biting on chicken liver fished along the bottom; fishing is productive anywhere in the lake. Saugeye on the Butler County side are being caught using minnows or artificial bait; keep the bait between 10-12 feet deep for the best results. Crappie are hitting on minnows fished 6-8 feet under a bobber near downed trees and brush. Whitewater River and Lake (Hamilton County) - Anglers are catching bass and bluegill in the lake. For bass, try jigging, crankbaits and soft plastics. The bluegill are easy to catch provided you rent a boat; fish along the woods with wax worms and a bobberand also try smaller inline spinner baits. Good size catfish in the 10-pound range have been reported; use goldfish, shiners and suckers that can be purchased at the marina. In early summer, try the pool where the river meets US 50. Anglers have caught saugers, white bass, channel catfish, smallmouth and largemouth bass and report good success when the water is a little higher than the normal and clear; summer fishing is good here if you fish early in the morning or at dusk; try a jighead with a plain white grub. Spoons and rattle-traps are also recommended. OHIO RIVER Belleville Dam and Tailwaters - Success for hybrid-striped bass may be slowing but there are still some opportunities; try at the dam with spoons and plastics or live bait fished beneath agitators. The earlier and later parts of the day seem to yield the best results. Catfish can be caught on a more regular basis using both nightcrawlers and cut bait; anywhere along the shoreline or at the walkway would be good places. The tailwater public fishing access is located on the West Virginia side of the river off SR 68 at Belleville. Meldahl Dam (Clermont County) - Anglers are reporting steady fishing, with catches of gar, catfish and a few white bass; try up near the dam. Daylight hours until dusk have been producing good numbers but early evening until dawn have been good for catfish; try chicken liver or cut shad.

The best areas have been around the Toledo water intake, NE of West Sister Island, “C” can of the Camp Perry firing range, between South Bass and Green islands and 1-3 miles E of the Kelleys Island airport; perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. … Smallmouth bass fishing has been very good around South Bass Island; anglers are using soft-craws, tube jigs and crankbaits. Central Basin: Walleye fishing has been good W of the Huron dumping grounds, at the weather buoy, 1.5 miles N of Beaver Creek and nearshore from Sheffield to Avon Point. Fishing has been excellent in 63-65’ of water N of Rocky River, in 62-65’ of water N of Gordon Park, in 65-70’ NW of Fairport Harbor and in 60-69’ NE of the Geneva; anglers are trolling dipsy/jet-divers with worm harnesses and spoons. … Yellow perch fishing has been excellent in 30’ NE of Gordon Park, in 37’ N of Chagrin River, in 42-52’ NW of Fairport Harbor (the hump) and in 21-44’ N of the Ashtabula. Shore anglers are catching fish off East 55th Street in Cleveland; spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. … Smallmouth bass fishing has been very good in 15-25’ around harbor areas in Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula and Conneaut.

Where oh where has the Botts’ Dot gone?
by Gary Clothier Q: In the late 1950s, I was just a kid. I received a small package from my uncle, who worked for the California Department of Transportation. His research team was developing and installing glass markers on highways. Each round marker was several inches in diameter, and, as I recall, it reflected headlights and acted as a mini-rumble to warn motorists if they were crossing a lane or drifting off the road. This marker was a true treasure that has long since disappeared. What also disappeared is my recollection of its name. Do you know? I also wish you could tell me where my glass treasure is. -- F.L., Johns Creek, Ga. A: Sorry, but I don’t know the whereabouts of your glass marker. There must be a place where childhood treasures are stored. I’m not sure if we are ever reconnected with these loved items, but I would like to think they are safe, maybe someday to be rediscovered by other curious young minds. I can tell you something about those markers, though. They are called Botts’ dots and were named after Elbert Dysart Botts, a Caltrans engineer who is credited with supervising the development of the highway markers. Botts’ dots are not reflective, but they do act as the warning that you described. According to a Caltrans newsletter, the markers are currently made of plastic, ceramic and polyester, with different kinds of glues to hold them in place. Q: While in Taos, N.M., I visited what was said to be the oldest continuously inhabited houses in North America -- they were up to 1,000 years old! Where is the oldest home built by Europeans in colonial America? -- C.H., Nampa, Idaho A: The Fairbanks House in Dedham, Mass., lays claim to being the oldest surviving timber-frame house in North America. The farmhouse was built from about 1637 to 1641 for Jonathan and Grace Fairebanke and their six children; it was home to eight generations of Fairbanks. The Fairbanks House is now a museum, open May 1 through Oct. 31.

By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, JUNE 30, 2013 A number of unusual happenings will elevate your hopes and expectations in the year ahead. Just when you think something important isn’t going to happen, you could be in for the surprise of your life. Keep the faith. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Cooperation from your friends or peers will prove to be essential to your success. Happily, you won’t have any trouble getting the right people to lend a hand. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The fresh insights you’re looking for can be realized through brainstorming or a conversation with a friend in the know. Seek out anyone who fits this description. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You shouldn’t have any trouble gratifying your ambitious objectives. Make the most of this wonderful cycle. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Generally speaking, you should be able to get along with most everybody you know. You’re likely to be most effective dealing with people on a one-on-one basis. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You often work in fits and starts, but not so today. It’s almost a foregone conclusion that whatever you set your mind to doing will be completed to your satisfaction. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You might find a need to share your thoughts and/or feelings with friends. Chatting with pals won’t be a waste of time because something good will come of it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There are some hopeful indications that you’re moving toward firmer ground in your affairs. Any pressure you’ve been feeling could be eased considerably. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Some happy news could put you in a pleasant mood and get you started on a productive course of action. Because of this, more good things will develop. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- The charitable way you deal with people will yield you large returns down the line. The seeds of kindness you’re planting are being sown on fertile soil. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- When it comes to doing something with others, the group will be looking to you to establish the program. Fortunately, it’s what you do best, and you will have something in mind. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone you’ve always been able to rely on will have something in mind -- without you even having to ask -- that will please you very much. You’re lucky to have such a friend. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Most group involvements will work out well. Engage with others in a shared interest, and you’ll be on top of the world. MONDAY, JULY 1, 2013 You’ll have several opportunities to make some notable improvements in your financial circumstances in the year ahead. However, there are also indications that you could be careless in the management of your resources. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Diplomacy will definitely be called for when making a deal with someone who always takes an unyielding position. Try to compromise and find a way for both parties to benefit. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- As long as you don’t take on more than you can handle, this can be a very productive day for you. You wouldn’t be at your best operating under pressure, so why put yourself under the gun? VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Be prepared for a social arrangement to have its ups and downs. There is a strong chance that someone whom you dislike could be included in the planned activities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- An old, unresolved issue could rear its ugly head and become the focal point in a family discussion. Keep your cool and put a stop to it the moment someone tries to bring it up. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Know when to stop pushing something if your prospect has obvious doubts. Trying too hard to make a sale would only make matters worse. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- It behooves you to be extremely careful in handling financial matters, especially if you’re doing so for someone else. If things don’t work out, you’ll be held accountable. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) -- When negotiating an important matter, you should be sure to have all the details down. Things could unravel quickly over even a trivial dispute. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- To achieve personal gain, you’ll have to work unusually hard. This is especially so if you feel that you can’t trust a vital colleague. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Unless you are socially aware at all times, you could unintentionally slight an old friend in favor of more recent acquaintances. Be careful, because excuses won’t be readily accepted. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t depend on others to help you achieve a personal objective. Although it might be of personal significance, it’s not on anyone else’s radar. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If a friend or colleague adamantly opposes an issue that you feel strongly about, don’t let it upset the relationship. Turn the other cheek. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- When making a sizable purchase, you should be sure to hang on to your receipt. There’s a decent chance that something could be wrong with the merchandise.

Final gov’t birth control rule for faith groups
Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Obama administration issued its final compromise Friday for religiously affiliated charities, hospitals and other nonprofits that object to covering birth control in their employee health plans. The Health and Human Services Department said the final plan simplifies how insurers provide the coverage separately from faith-based groups and gives religious nonprofits more time to comply. However, the changes are unlikely to resolve objections from faith groups that the requirement violates their religious freedom. More than 60 lawsuits have been filed challenging the rule. The cases are expected to reach the Supreme Court. The birth-control rule was first introduced in February 2012, as part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, drawing praise from women’s groups and condemnation from religious leaders. The original plan exempted churches and other houses of worship, but required faith-affiliated charities, universities and other nonprofits to provide the coverage for their employees. The regulation became an election-year issue as Roman Catholic bishops, evangelicals and some religious leaders who have generally been supportive of Obama’s policies lobbied fiercely for a broader exemption. The Obama administration offered a series of accommodations, leading to the final rules released Friday. Under the compromise, administration officials said they simplified the definition of religious organizations that are fully exempt from the requirement. The change means a church that also ran a soup kitchen would not have to comply. Other religious nonprofits must notify their insurance company that they object to birth control coverage. The insurer or administrator of the plan will then notify affected employees separately that coverage will be provided at no cost. The insurers would be reimbursed by a credit against fees owed the government. Michael Hash, director of the health reform office of the Health and Human Services Department, said the final regulation spells out in more detail the buffer between religious charities and contraceptive coverage. Faithbased groups were given another reprieve — until Jan. 1 — to comply. “There’s a much brighter line here — a simpler line — and we think that responds to a good many of the comments that we got,” said Michael Hash, director of the Health and Human Services office of health reform. More than 400,000 comments were submitted over the last several months, the agency said. Judy Waxman of the National Women’s Law Center, an advocacy group based in Washington, said she would prefer women hear directly about the coverage from their insurer, but her organization could accept the plan. “It’s fair,” she said. However, Eric Rassbach, an attorney with the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a public interest law firm challenging the contraception coverage rule, said “it doesn’t really change the overall way they’re trying to do this.” The Becket Fund represents many of organizations challenging the regulation in federal court. The Catholic Church prohibits the use of artificial contraception. Evangelicals generally accept the use of birth control, but some object to specific methods such as the morning-after contraceptive pill, which they argue is tantamount to abortion, and is covered under the policy. The lawsuits are split almost evenly between nonprofit plaintiffs — including several Roman Catholic dioceses — and for-profit businesses who say the rules go against their religious beliefs. For-profit businesses are not included in the accommodation released Friday and were not eligible for the time extension. The Oklahoma-based Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. is the largest and best-known of the businesses that have sued. On Thursday, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver allowed the lawsuit to move forward on religious grounds. The judges said the portion of the law that requires them to offer certain kinds of birth control to their employees is particularly onerous and sent the case back to a lower court in Oklahoma. On Friday, the lower court granted Hobby Lobby a temporary injunction against full enforcement of the law. Businesses that fail to comply potentially face fines based on the number of workers they employ and other factors. The amount for Hobby Lobby could reach into the hundreds of millions of dollars. Many of the nonprofit lawsuits had been put on hold until the final rules were announced. Neither the Catholic Health Association, a trade group for hospitals, nor the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops had an immediate reaction Friday, saying the regulations were still being studied. New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, president of the bishops’ conference, said he appreciated the time extension.
(Continued from page 1) Even though Kann has retired from Vancrest as a physical therapist, he now devotes 100 percent of his time to the development of Parkinson’s Activity and Rehabilitation Klinic (P.A.R.K.) programs. In January, he opened a ‘klinic’ in the Urbana Vancrest Health Care facility, where he works with 20-25 patients and caregivers for hour-long sessions on Thursdays. “We strive for perfection and along the way reach excellence from the participants,” Kann emphasized. “That’s our goal.” Kann detailed the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease (PD), which includes rigidity, hand tremors, stooped posture, taking small steps, shuffling feet and falling. A person exhibiting one or two of these symptoms does not mean they have Parkinson’s; however, people showing several of these signs can be an indication of the disease. He recommends seeing a physician as soon as possible for treatments. Denial means waiting on treatment— the medications and therapies they need to stabilize the situation—and caregivers need to be realistic and realize the sooner treatment begins, the longer their loved one will have a better quality of life. There are one million Americans living with Parkinson’s disease and close to 60,000 are diagnosed with the disease each year. Incidence of Parkinson’s increases with age but an estimated four
percent of people with the disease are diagnosed before the age of 50. In addition, men are one and a half times more likely to have Parkinson’s than women. “What we take for granted, Parkinson’s patients lose the ability to do,” Kann said. The main goal is to teach both the caregiver and the patient functionality. The success of the program is determined by what is carried over at home by the patients and caregivers and not just by what they do in the one hour sessions once a week. It’s a team effort in safety where the caregiver is taught to reinforce the patients’ functional activities in the home environment. Kann said people may not realize the six steps necessary just to sit in a chair. First, the patient must line themselves up with the chair, make sure the back of their legs are touching the chair, reach for and place their hands on the armrests, bend at the knees and hips and put their weight over their knees and sit down slowly. “There is no ‘plopping’,” Kann emphasized. “It must be controlled. Fold up like an accordion.” The journey has taught Kann a great deal about humility. “I learn as much from them, the patients and caregivers, as they learn from me,” Kann reflected on a pivotal moment. A patient — we’ll call him Ed — that exhibited “the shakes” asked Kann to go golfing with him. Kann thought to himself “How on earth can you golf like
that?” While approaching the first tee, Kann noticed that as soon as Ed touched the club, his shaking stopped and he hit the ball really well. The same scenario occurred when Ed putted the ball. It shows that people can be very functional with Parkinson’s. During the outing, Kann noticed Ed never taking a practice swing prior to hitting the ball and questioned him about it. Ed responded with, “I don’t because I want to save my strength.” “He beat me by six strokes,” Kann said in disbelief. “That was a very eyeopening experience.” In order to get into the program, a patient must have a referral from a doctor and be assessed by a physical therapist for these criteria: maintain independence at home and the ability to follow direction in a group setting. “The clinic is free,” Kann spoke with empathy. ”I do not want to deny anybody the opportunity to join the program.” P.A.R.K. is designed to give the patients with Parkinson’s Disease and their caregivers the tools to use on a regular basis in the home environment to gain maximum function and better quality of life. Family members are encouraged to support their loved ones by attending the one-hour sessions. For more information, contact Delphos Vancrest Health Care Center at 419-695-2871.
NSA leaker’s dad says son would return to US
WASHINGTON (AP) — The father of NSA leaker Edward Snowden acknowledged Friday that his son broke the law but said he doesn’t think he committed treason, as the Obama administration renewed its calls to Russia to expel Snowden so he can be tried under the Espionage Act. Meanwhile, Ecuadorean officials say Russian authorities have stymied the country’s efforts to approve a political asylum application from the former National Security Agency systems analyst, according to government officials with direct knowledge of the case. Their accounts further complicate the already murky understanding of his current status. In conceding his son’s guilt, Snowden’s father, Lonnie Snowden, told NBC’s “Today” show that his lawyer had informed Attorney General Eric Holder that he believes his son would voluntarily return to the United States if the Justice Department promises not to hold him before trial and not subject him to
a gag order. “If folks want to classify him as a traitor, in fact, he has betrayed his government. But I don’t believe that he’s betrayed the people of the United States,” Lonnie Snowden said. The elder Snowden hasn’t spoken to his son since April, but he said he believes he’s being manipulated by people at WikiLeaks. The anti-secrecy group has been trying to help Edward Snowden gain asylum. “I don’t want to put him in peril, but I am concerned about those who surround him,” Lonnie Snowden told NBC. “I think WikiLeaks, if you’ve looked at past history, you know, their focus isn’t necessarily the Constitution of the United States. It’s simply to release as much information as possible.” Lonnie Snowden declined to comment when The Associated Press reached him Friday. U.S. officials said their outreach to Russia, Ecuador and other countries where Snowden might travel to or seek refuge is ongoing.

After sustaining an injury during an artillery strike, Dickman spent some time in a hospital on one of the Japanese islands. “I got hit with something on the side of my face, felt like it left a hole,” he said. “It knocked two teeth loose, I spit one out and called a medic over and had him look at me. He looked in my mouth and said there was another one loose in there and we could either leave it in or pull it. I said, well it’s no use to me if it’s loose, so we pulled it. “After that, I spent a week in a hospital on Hokkaido Island. The 1st Calvary was there because things were getting tough with Russia and other countries. In 1952, we were leaving from Yokohama Harbor and I remember there were fireworks for the Fourth of July that night.” Dickman lives in Delphos. He lost his wife to cancer 25 years ago. They had two children together: David and Debbie.
