Preliminary ’14 Fay to be tried as adult budget shows in Ottawa murders $700K shortfall
By NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor OTTAWA — The teen charged with the murders of Blake and Blaine Romes will be tried as an adult. Michael Aaron Fay, 17, appeared Tuesday before Putnam County Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Borer, who granted the prosecution’s request. The case will now head to the Putnam County Grand Jury before the end of July. The Grand Jury will consider additional charges such as an earlier charge of grand theft. Judge Borer also granted the prosecution’s request that Fay’s bond be set at $5 million. “Ultimately, the bond request was based on what I believe is necessary to protect the community,” said Assistant County Prosecutor Todd Schroeder. Following the hearing,

DELPHOS — Delphos City Council will face some tough decisions in the coming months after approving the preliminary 2014 Budget presented by Auditor Tom Jettinghoff, which includes $2.7 million in revenues to cover $3.4 million in expenditures. The preliminary budget must be filed with the county by July 15. Finance Committee Chair Joe Martz asked that city administration prepare the fund breakdowns in preparation for a committee meeting in early August. “I don’t think we can wait until Fall to start looking at this,” Martz said. “We need to start making a plan now on where to make up that $700,000.” Quickly following the sober budget news were fund balances as of June 30 with the water account $79,000 in the red. “We need to take a hard look at our expenditures versus revenue right now,” Jettinghoff stressed. Safety Service Director Greg Berquist also had bad news about the wastewater treatment plant and failing membranes. “Our plant is coming up on eight years old and the current condition of our membranes have reduced our capacity,” Berquist said. “Our membrane plates are not functioning as expected and need to be replaced before the warranty is up.” See BUDGET, page 12

Putnam County regional water, sewer system all but certain
BY ALEX WOODRING DHI Correspondent OTTAWA — The likelihood of the county seeing a regional water and sewer system is all but certain. Last year, the Putnam County commissioners approved a resolution in support of a partnership agreement between the Village of Ottawa and the commissioners for a regional water and sanitary sewer. This was done in response to EPA regulations for water and sanitary sewer systems becoming more stringent and costly for villages. The county is in charge of sewer service for properties outside the Ottawa’s corporation. The sewer services are provided by the village. The push for a countywide water and sewer system, an idea talked about for multiple years, is in response to the Village of Ottawa serving three other villages and some unincorporated areas in the county with water and one other community and unincorporated areas with wastewater services. In hopes to cut costs, the village and commissioners started the push for a regional system. The regionalization process started about a year and half ago. Municipal Director Jack Williams wrote and was granted $100,000 for regional water and sewer in regards to a feasibility study. According to Williams, it is a matter of not if but when.

One Year Ago A third of Delphos remains without power today as AEP crews wait for a part to bring the rest of the city online. According to Mayor Michael Gallmeier, power outages in the city are sometimes sporadic. The main areas affected are North Main Street and areas west of North Main to State Route 66. 25 Years Ago – 1988 Robert Osburn had high praise for his fellow firefighters as he began his retirement this week after 23 years with the Delphos Fire Department. “We have as good a fire department as anybody around. We have a lot of good dedicated firemen,” said Osburn, who retired Friday. Osburn joined the department in 1964 about the same time Don Schimmoller took over as chief. Schimmoller retired in January. Laura Knippen won second place in zone competition of the God, Flag and Country oratorical contest sponsored by Fraternal Order of Eagles. Doris Keller, chairman of the program, presented Knippen with a check for $100. Laura also won local and district competition. She received a savings bond from Aerie 471, one from Delphos Parent-Teacher Organization, as well as $50 cash from district competition. Tracy Rebecca VonSossan, a recent graduate of Fort Jennings High

School, has been awarded the Ohio Child Conservation League’s scholarship Loan. She is the daughter of Daniel and Sandra VonSossan of Fort Jennings. In high school, she was active in band, volleyball, softball and church activities. She will attend Heidelberg College to study sports medicine/education. 50 Years Ago – 1963 Members of the Junior Court Catholic Daughters of America closed their meetings for this season this past week with a Mystery Trip that included a wiener roast.

Prosecutors attack Zimmerman story several ways
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A judge tossed out a detective’s statement that he found George Zimmerman credible in his description of fighting with Trayvon Martin, a decision that benefits prosecutors who are trying to discredit the defendant’s self-defense claims. Other efforts by prosecutors to attack Zimmerman’s story on Tuesday included the cross examination of a friend he called after shooting Martin and the testimony of a doctor who found the defendant’s injuries to be insignificant. They also sought to introduce school records that indicate Zimmerman had studied the state’s self-defense law, in another swipe at his truthfulness. Prosecutors took the unusual step of trying to pick apart the statements of an investigator they’d called as a prosecution witness because some of what he said appeared to help the defense. Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda asked the judge to strike Detective Chris Serino’s statement that he thought Zimmerman was credible when he described how he got into a fight with Martin. Serino was the lead investigator on the case for the Sanford Police Department. De la Rionda argued the statement was improper because one witness isn’t allowed to evaluate another witness’s credibility. Defense attorney Mark O’Mara argued that it’s Serino’s job to decide whether Zimmerman was telling the truth. Judge Debra Nelson told jurors to disregard the statement. “This is an improper comment,” the judge said. Zimmerman has said he fatally shot the unarmed black 17-year-old in selfdefense in February of 2012 because Martin was banging his head into a concrete sidewalk. Zimmerman, 29, could get life in prison if convicted of seconddegree murder. He has pleaded not guilty. To earn a conviction on the charge, prosecutors must prove there was ill will, spite or a depraved mind by the defendant. The prosecutor also questioned Serino about his opinion that Zimmerman didn’t display those negative emotions toward Martin. De la Rionda played back Zimmerman’s call to police to report the teen wailing through his gated community. Zimmerman uses an expletive, refers to “punks” and then says, “These a———-. They always get away.” The detective conceded that Zimmerman’s choice of words could be interpreted as being spiteful. The state has argued that Zimmerman profiled Martin from his truck and called a police dispatch number before he and the teenager got into a fight. Zimmerman has denied the confrontation had anything to do with race, as Martin’s family and their supporters have claimed. Zimmerman’s father is white and his mother is Hispanic. Several moves by prosecutors Tuesday were aimed at showing inconsistencies in Zimmerman’s statements. Prosecutors asked the judge to allow them to introduce school records showing Zimmerman took a class that addressed Florida’s self-defense law. They say it will show he had knowledge of the law, even though he

Today is Wednesday, July 3, the 184th day of 2013. There are 181 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 3, 1863, the three-day Civil War Battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania ended in a major victory for the North as Confederate troops failed to breach Union positions during an assault known as Pickett’s Charge. On this date: In 1775, Gen. George Washington took command of the Continental Army at Cambridge, Mass. In 1890, Idaho became the 43rd state of the Union. In 1898, the U.S. Navy defeated a Spanish fleet outside Santiago Bay in Cuba during the Spanish-American War. In 1913, during a 50th anniversary reunion at Gettysburg, Pa., Civil War veterans re-enacted Pickett’s Charge, which ended with embraces and handshakes between the former enemies. In 1938, President Franklin D. Roosevelt marked the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg by dedicating the Eternal Light Peace Memorial. In 1944, during World War II, Soviet forces recaptured Minsk. In 1950, the first carrier strikes of the Korean War took place as the USS Valley Forge and the HMS Triumph sent fighter planes against North Korean targets. In 1962, French President Charles de Gaulle signed an agreement recognizing Algeria as an independent state after 132 years of French rule. In 1971, singer Jim Morrison of The Doors died in Paris at age 27. In 1988, the USS Vincennes shot down an Iran Air jetliner over the Persian Gulf, killing all 290 people aboard. In 1993, Hall of Fame pitcher Don Drysdale died in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, at age 56. Comedian “Curly Joe” DeRita, the sixth member of the Three Stooges, died in Woodland Hills, Calif., at age 83. Ten years ago: The U.S. put a $25 million bounty on Saddam Hussein, and $15 million apiece for his two sons. (The $30 million reward for Odai and Qusai Hussein went to a tipster whose

information led U.S. troops to their hideout, where the brothers were killed in a gunbattle.) Five years ago: The Pentagon announced it had extended the tour of 2,200 Marines in Afghanistan, after insisting for months the unit would come home on time. Venus and Serena Williams won in straight sets to set up their third all-sister Wimbledon final and seventh Grand Slam championship matchup. Larry Harmon, who turned Bozo the Clown into a show business staple, died in Los Angeles at age 83. One year ago: A federal judge in Amarillo, Texas, found Clayton F. Osbon, a JetBlue Airways pilot who’d left the cockpit during a flight and screamed about religion and terrorists, not guilty by reason of insanity of interfering with a flight crew. Andy Griffith, 86, who made homespun American Southern wisdom his trademark as the wise sheriff in “The Andy Griffith Show,” died at his North Carolina home. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Tim O’Connor is 86. Jazz musician Pete Fountain is 83. Playwright Tom Stoppard is 76. Writerproducer Jay Tarses is 74. Attorney Gloria Allred is 72. Folk singer Judith Durham (The Seekers) is 70. Actor Kurtwood Smith is 70. Actor Michael Cole (“The Mod Squad”) is 68. Country singer Johnny Lee is 67. Humorist Dave Barry is 66. Actress Betty Buckley is 66. Rock singer-musician Paul Barrere (Little Feat) is 65. Actress Jan Smithers is 64. Actor Bruce Altman is 58. Former Haitian President Jean-Claude Duvalier is 62. Talk show host Montel Williams is 57. Country singer Aaron Tippin is 55. Rock musician Vince Clarke (Erasure) is 53. Actor Tom Cruise is 51. Actor Thomas Gibson is 51. Actress Hunter Tylo is 51. Actress Connie Nielsen is 49. Actress Yeardley Smith is 49. Singer Ishmael Butler is 44. Rock musician Kevin Hearn (Barenaked Ladies) is 44. Actress-singer Shawnee Smith is 44. Actress-singer Audra McDonald is 43. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is 42. Actor Patrick Wilson is 40. Country singer Trent Tomlinson is 38. Actress Andrea Barber is 37. Singer Shane Lynch (Boyzone) is 37. Actor Ian Anthony Dale is 35. Actress Elizabeth Hendrickson is 34. Rhythm-and-blues singer Tonia Tash (Divine) is 34. Country singer-songwriter Sarah Buxton is 33. Actress Shoshannah Stern is 33. Actor Grant Rosenmeyer is 22. Actress Kelsey Batelaan is 18. claimed he didn’t in an interview with talk show host Sean Hannity. The interview was played for jurors. O’Mara objected, saying the records were irrelevant. He referred to the prosecution’s efforts to introduce them as “a witch hunt.” The judge said she would rule later in the week. Late in the morning the prosecution questioned Mark Osterman, a friend who spoke with Zimmerman after the shooting. Under questioning by de la Rionda, Osterman said that Zimmerman told him Martin had grabbed his gun during their struggle, but that Zimmerman was able to pull it away. That account is different from what Zimmerman told investigators in multiple interviews. In those interviews, he only said it appeared Martin was reaching for his gun prior to the shooting. He never told police the teen grabbed it. “I thought he had said he grabbed the gun,” Osterman said. “I believe he said he grabbed the gun.” A Sanford Police Department fingerprint examiner testified that none of Martin’s prints were found on the gun. Prosecutors also called a medical examiner who had reviewed evidence for them to the witness stand. Dr. Valerie Rao testified that Zimmerman’s injuries were insignificant, bolstering the prosecution’s claims that Zimmerman’s life wasn’t in jeopardy during his fight with Martin. Rao was not the medical examiner who autopsied Martin. “They were so minor that the individual who treated and examined Mr. Zimmerman decided stitches weren’t required,” Rao said.

First Assembly of God hosts H.I.S. Home bikers

When pigs fly at the Rib Fest
Information submitted VAN WERT — For the second consecutive year, pigs will be falling from the sky at the seventh annual Van Wert Rib Fest. Plastic pigs, that is, will be dropped over a designated area at the Rib Fest by the United Way of Van Wert County. This event will help support many area organizations aided by the United Way. Pigs may be purchased from any United Way Board member for $10. Pigs may also be purchased at the Fountain Park Summer Concerts. Only a limited number of pigs will be sold. The pig that falls closest to the marked pig pen will win $650 for its “owner.” The pig landing second-closest to the pig pen will earn $350 and the poor pig that lands the farthest away from the pen will earn $250 for its owner. For more information about this event, call the United Way office at (419) 238-6689 or the Van Wert Area Convention and Visitors Bureau at (419) 238-9378.

For the third consecutive year, Delphos First Assembly of God recently hosted the H.I.S. Home Bikers for a Friday evening dinner and a place to clean up and rest. The church also provided breakfast and joined the bikers for morning devotions before the group left for the last leg of their journey of love. Four years ago, Geoff and Judy Van Berkel organized the annual 300-mile bike ride aimed at raising money to help H.I.S. Home, a 125-child home located in Port Au Prince, Haiti. During the 300-mile trek, the bicyclists cover upwards of 50 miles or more each day and stop at churches along the route for a place to stay and meals. The route requires the use of back roads, given the group’s size, and volunteers trail the bikers with a van carrying supplies, water and the like. The journey begins in Rockford, Mich., and ends in Harrod, where the families of dozens of adopted Haitian children meet for fellowship and more. The Van Berkels have adopted two girls, Daphna and Gracie, from the Haiti orphanage and are in the process of adopting two more children from there. (Submitted photo)

BY LOVINA EICHER We are having thunderstorms most of the evening. Our rain gauge shows like we have over two inches of rain already. I do think we have more because the wind is blowing the rain so it might not be quite the accurate amount going in. We also had a thunderstorm last night and received a half inch of rain. We were in need of rain so we decided to water the garden. I told the boys maybe if we water the garden we will get rain. The rain clouds all seemed to go over us but soon after the garden was watered, the rain and storms arrived. My husband Joe and sons Benjamin and Joseph spent the day fishing on the nearby lake on Saturday. They came home with around 50 bluegill, perch and crappies. Tonight, we fried the fish for our supper along with hash browns and potatoes, cheese, ice cream and strawberries. Today on our “to do” list was to mop the floors, make strawberry freezer jam and weed the garden. Seemed we were done early. When all the children pitch in to help the work goes faster. It’s nice

to be done early and have a long, relaxing evening. Corn detasseling should be starting sometime after the Fourth of July. Next week, Joe and daughter Elizabeth both have the week off for their annual vacation. I’m sure that week will go way too fast for them. So far we don’t have any special plans for the week. On Monday, July 1, daughter Loretta will be 13. Wow! Our fifth teenager in the house. We as parents sure cannot complain though. They are all good children and we pray God will always be their guide through life. Son Benjamin will be 14 on July 14 and son Joseph will be 11 on July 24. Then Joe and I will have our 20th anniversary on July 15. The month of July always brings cake and ice cream Sister Emma will be 40 on July 19 and her youngest son Steven will be 6 in July. One year after another passes by and all at once we stop to think: where has all the time has gone?

Son Kevin, 7, is so excited about his cousin Steven coming for the night. He has all kinds of plans on what they can do. This is now Wednesday morning. We received another inch of rain through the night making a total of 3 1/2 inches of rain this week so far. The wind blew my sweet corn over. I’m hoping it will stand back up.

Wildcats ride 2-hitter from Herron, Teman to whitewash Jays
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer DELPHOS — The 2013 ACME Congress Summer Baseball tournament (Van Wert County) got underway Tuesday in Delphos (postponed from Monday) at Wildcat Field and Stadium Park. Before the rains hit just before 6 p.m., the Wildcats had ridden the combined 2-hitter of Jordan Herron and an 11-hit attack to bounce the Blue Jays 10-0 in five innings. Herron (4 innings, 2 hits; 60 pitches, 41 strikes) sent down the Jays 1-2-3 in the first two frames. Jefferson got rolling with three tallies in the bottom of the first against Jays’ starter Ben Wrasman. Josh Teman (2 walks, 2 runs) walked to get it started, stole second (one of 12 by the team), went to third on Jace Stockwell’s sacrifice and scored on Ross Thompson’s (2-for-3, 2 runs) triple to right. In turn, Thompson scored on Zavier Buzard’s infield hit to the hole at short. He stole a pair of bases and scored on Austin Jettinghoff’s blooper to right. In turn, he stole second and advanced to third on a bounceout by Herron but couldn’t score. Jefferson made it 5-0 in the second. With an out, Gage Mercer (2-for-2, 2 runs) singled up the gut, burgled second and touched the dish courtesy of a 2-out single to right by Stockwell. Thompson singled up the gut, sending Stockwell toward third; an error on the play allowed him to score and put the batter at second. He was caught stealing third to end the inning at 5-0, Jefferson. The Jays had their first real threat in the top of the third. With two outs, J.R. Keirns singled to right, followed by a free

The Red and White made it 9-0 in the fourth. Jake Pulford singled to right center and pinch-runner Adam Rode stole second. He went to third on a bunt single by Mercer and the latter stole second. Back-to-back wild pitches scored both. Teman walked and stole second and third. An out later, Thompson was safe on a fielder’s choice and quickly swiped second. Buzard (2-for3, 3 RBIs) knocked both of them in with a slice to right but he was doubled-up on a pop-up by Jettinghoff on an ensuing rundown. The Jays had their final chance in the fifth against Wildcat reliever Teman. Brandon Slate walked but Chad Etgen bounced into a 6-4-3 double play and the final out was record. Jays’ reliever Slate got the first two outs of the fifth but Tyler Rice singled and stole second. Mercer walked and when Teman’s fly ball to the outfield was dropped, Rice scored to end the game. Shortly after the completion of the game, the skies opened up and forced postponement of the nightcap between Jefferson and top-seeded Crestview to be postponed to today at a site and time to be determined.

Cougars top Lancers 8-2 in rain-shortened tourney opener
By JIM COX DHI Correspondent DELPHOS - Cougar bats blasted a homer and three doubles in Tuesday’s rain-shortened Van Wert County ACME Tournament opener, resulting in a decisive 8-2 win over Lincolnview at Stadium Park in Delphos. The game was called after 5 1/2 innings because of rain and lightning, thus erasing the top of the sixth inning, during which Van Wert, the visiting team, had added a ninth run. The win advances the Cougs in the winners’ bracket, with their next opponent and time to be determined. The Lancers drop to the losers’ bracket. Lancer starter Eli Farmer cruised through the top of the first inning 1-2-3 without a ball leaving the infield. Lincolnview threatened Cougar lefty Brandt Henry in the bottom half. Henry plunked the leadoff hitter, shortstop Kyle Williams, and Farmer bunted Williams over to second. Centerfielder Jalen Roberts smoked a liner that third baseman Jacob Braun snow-coned for the second out. Williams then went to third on a wild pitch but a strikeout ended that threat. The Van Wert bats came to life in the second. Centerfielder Tyler Williams led off with a single through the third/short hole. After two infield pop-outs, Braun hit a rope down the left-field line and over the fence to make it 2-0. While Henry was breezing through the second and third, Van Wert was adding three-spots in each of those innings. Leftfielder Jacob Williamson started the third with a walk, then stole second. Farmer struck out the next batter but second baseman Joe Lisa poked a line single to center, plating Williamson, and went to second on a wild pitch. Henry ripped a double into the gap in left center, bringing in Lisa. Henry advanced to third on a groundout, then scored when first baseman Kevin Agler bounced an infield single up the middle — 5-0, Van Wert, after 2 1/2. Farmer plunked Braun to start the Cougar fourth. Rightfielder Brian Mills bounced an infield single into the third/short hole and, after

an infield pop-out, shortstop Cody Keirns walked to load the bases. Lisa drove in Braun with an opposite-field bloop single to left and Henry drilled his second double into the left-centerfield gap, plating Mills and Keirns — 8-0, Cougars, after 3 1/2. Righty Ethan Williams replaced Henry on the mound to start the bottom of the fourth and things got a bit dicey for Van Wert. Williams walked two batters in that inning but escaped without giving up a run. Lincolnview shortstop Kyle Williams traded positions with Farmer to start the top of the fifth and didn’t yield a run, although the Cougs threatened via a bloop single by Braun and a frozen-rope double down the left-field line by Ethan Williams. Williams struggled mightily in the bottom of the fifth, hitting a batter, walking two and yielding one hit — a single by rightfielder Dalton Schmersal. Van Wert still led 8-2, however, and that’s when the game officially ended. Henry had a big game on the mound and at the plate. In his three innings on the hill, he blanked the Lancers on two hits, both infield dribblers, while striking out two, walking nobody and hitting one batter. He was efficient, too, throwing only 36 pitches, of which 27 were strikes. At the plate, he went 2-for-3, both doubles, while scoring a run and driving in three. Lisa (2-for-3, 1 run, 2 RBIs) and Braun (2-for-2,

including a homer, 2 runs, 2 RBIs) also had big games for the Cougars. The Lancers got infield singles from third baseman Derek Youtsey and leftfielder Trevor Neate. Their only solid base hit was Dalton Schmersal’s liner to left in the fifth inning. The RBIs came from Farmer (bases-loaded walk) and Roberts (fielder’s choice).

Bailey’s 2nd no-hitter sends Reds over Giants 3-0
By JOE KAY Associated Press CINCINNATI — Homer Bailey threw his second no-hitter in 10 months and the first in the majors this season, pitching the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 victory over the slumping San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night. Bailey (5-6) became the third Reds pitcher with more than one no-hitter, joining Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer — still the only big-leaguer to toss two in a row. Bailey beat the Pirates 1-0 in Pittsburgh last Sept. 28 and got another 17 starts later. “Every dog has its day twice, I guess,” Bailey said. “It felt good to do it front of the Cincinnati fans.” The last pitcher to throw one no-hitter and then another before anyone else in the majors accomplished the feat was Hall-ofFamer Nolan Ryan, according to STATS. Baseball’s career strikeout king did it for the California Angels on Sept. 28, 1974, against Minnesota, and June 1, 1975, vs. Associated Press Baltimore. Bailey grew up in Texas, just like Ryan, and wears No. 34 in tribute to his boyhood idol. Justin Verlander, Mark Buehrle and Roy Halladay are the only other active pitchers with a pair of no-hitters. Halladay, of course, threw one of his in the postseason. Bailey walked Gregor Blanco leading off the seventh, the only Giants batter to reach base. First baseman Joey Votto alertly threw out Blanco as he tried to advance from second to third on a soft onehopper that otherwise could have become an infield single for Buster Posey. With 27,509 fans on their feet chanting “Homer! Homer!” Bailey finished it off in the ninth. He jumped to glove Brandon Crawford’s high comebacker, struck out Tony Abreu and retired Blanco on a grounder to third baseman Todd Frazier. “Going into the eighth and ninth I just said, ‘Why the hell not?’ Here we go again,” Bailey added. When Votto caught the throw for the final out, Bailey raised both arms in tri-

Inbee Park: 1 more leg for Grand Slam, or is it 2?
The good news for LPGA Tour commissioner Mike Whan is that his sport is dominating the golf conversation, which is rare. For the last two days, it seems like every time Whan turns on TV is he hearing about Inbee Park; that’s how it should be. When she completed a masterful week of putting and precision at Sebonack Golf Club, the 24-year-old South Korean had won the U.S. Women’s Open for her third straight major this year. Next up is a chance for Park to do what no golfer has done in the history of the royal and ancient game — win four professional majors in a single season. Adding to the moment is the venue — the Women’s British Open will be at St. Andrews, the home of golf. Any other year, the golf world would be buzzing over the prospect of a Grand Slam. But not this one. Because for such an historic occasion, there is way too much confusion. It was Whan who decided for noble reasons in 2010 to elevate The Evian Championship in France to major championship status starting in 2013, giving the LPGA Tour five majors for the first time in its 63-year history. Just his luck, it turned out to be the year one of his players had a shot at the Grand Slam. Except that winning four majors is not really a Grand Slam when there are five on the schedule. Is it? “If you would have asked me as a golf nut about five majors, I would have said, ‘It doesn’t feel right to me’,” Whan recalled Tuesday morning. “Then you become commissioner of the LPGA Tour. Do you or don’t you? If you don’t … your job here is to grow the opportunities for women in the game worldwide. We don’t get the exposure anywhere near the men’s game except for three or four times a year and those are around the majors. “Jump forward to 2013. The fact I can turn on the TV every night and the discussion is on the LPGA and five majors and what does this mean … the world views this as frustrating. In my own silly world, this is the most attention we’ve had in a long time.” Golf always has been about four majors; at least it seems that way. It dates to 1930 when Bobby Jones swept the biggest championships of his era — the British Open, British Amateur, U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur. George Trevor of the New York Sun referred to this feat as the “impregnable quadrilateral” of golf, while O.B. Keeler of the Atlanta Journal gave it a name that didn’t require a stiff upper lip. He called it a Grand Slam, a term from contract bridge that meant winning all 13 tricks. The spirit of that term is a clean sweep, whether it’s four, five or 13. Arnold Palmer gets credit for creating the modern version of the Grand Slam in 1960 when he won the Masters and U.S. Open and was on his way to play the British Open for the first time. He was traveling with Pittsburgh sports writer Bob Drum, who was lamenting that professional golf had led to the demise of what Jones had achieved in 1930. That’s when Palmer suggested a new Grand Slam by winning the four professional majors. Comparisons between men’s and women’s golf are never easy, especially in the majors. The PGA Tour and European Tour don’t own any of the four majors that its players have made famous. The press never bought into the notion of making The Players Championship a fifth major. It was Thomas Bonk of The Los Angeles Times who once wrote that there were “Three Stooges, Twelve Days of Christmas, Seven Dwarfs and four major championships.” Enough said. The LPGA Tour now has eight majors in its official history. Babe

No major champions in women’s semis at Wimbledon
By HOWARD FENDRICH Associated Press LONDON — Trailing 5-4 in her first Wimbledon quarterfinal, Sloane Stephens already had saved two set points and was about to serve at deuce when a fairly nondescript match became anything but. Raindrops were falling and Stephens’ opponent, 2007 runner-up Marion Bartoli, was trying to persuade a tournament official the Court 1 grass was dangerously slick. Spectators were booing and derisively whistling, angry at the prospect of play being suspended. Eventually, Bartoli got her way; they stopped. The court was covered. For the ensuing 2 1/2 hours, no points were played. When they returned, Stephens — the last U.S. singles player at the All England Club this year — was completely out of sorts. Soon, she was out of the field, dropping a hard-to-believe 19 of her first 20 service points after the rain delay and losing 6-4, 7-5 Tuesday to France’s Bartoli, one member of an altogether surprising semifinal quartet. The initial point when play resumed ended with Stephens pushing a backhand long, giving Bartoli her third set point. The next lasted 27 strokes, with Bartoli hitting a drop shot and Stephens responding with a forehand that caught the net tape and bounced wide. Just like that, the opening set was gone. Stephens, a 20-year-old based in Coral Springs, Fla., never recovered. After Bartoli went up 1-0 in the second set, part of a 10-point run, fans jeered her and she put her hands near her ears. The 15th-seeded Bartoli — who grips her racket with two hands off both wings, like her idol, Monica Seles — is seeking her first

Zaharias is the last player to win three straight majors on the calendar but that was in 1950 when that’s all there were. There was a 5-year stretch in the 1970s when there were only two. And now there are five? Women’s golf is not as steeped in tradition. More importantly, its pockets have never been very deep. That’s why the LPGA Championship, which dates to 1955, essentially took over what had been a regular tour event in Rochester, N.Y. Tradition is the Kraft Nabisco, the only major played on the same course (Rancho Mirage) where the winner jumps into the pond. Montgomerie misses out on British Open GULLANE, Scotland — Colin Montgomerie’s rushed journey to take place in British Open qualifying on Tuesday was all in vain. The Scottish veteran failed to make the field for the major after struggling in wet conditions. Montgomerie drove from Pittsburgh, where he finished ninth on Sunday in the Senior Players Championship, to New Jersey, then caught a flight home to Scotland — arriving Monday. After a few hours of rest, he teed up Tuesday at the Gullane No. 1 course, east of Edinburgh, in the hope of securing one of three spots in golf’s oldest major, which starts July 18 at nearby Muirfield. Montgomerie was tied for second after opening with a 69 in the morning but then got caught up in the slow play in the afternoon to shoot 76. Montgomerie will now take a week off and return to the United States next week for the U.S. Senior Open in Omaha, Neb. Australia’s John Wade shot a Dunbar course-record 7-under-par 63 to qualify, while Scotland’s Lloyd Saltman also qualified for his third British Open. Saltman, the leading amateur in the 2010 event at St. Andrews, lives close to Muirfield. Others who qualified were Scotland’s Grant Forrest, Gareth Wright and George Murray; India’s Shiv Kapur; Sweden’s Oscar Floren; and five Englishmen: Jimmy Mullen, Steven Tiley, Tyrrell Hatton, Ben Stow and Matthew Fitzpatrick. Els confirms he’ll play Scottish Open INVERNESS, Scotland — Ernie Els will test his links game before defending the British Open title by playing in the Scottish Open, the traditional warm-up event for golf’s oldest major. The 43-year-old South African has “very fond memories of my two wins in the Scottish Open and if I can win it a third time next week, it would be the perfect platform for my defense of The Open.” The British Open will be staged in Scotland at Muirfield from July 18-21. Tiger Woods keeps his December tournament The World Challenge that Tiger Woods has hosted every holiday season since 1999 means so much to him that he spent what was believed to be about $4 million of his own money to help cover operating costs in a year it did not have a full title sponsor. The future of the event is no longer in doubt. The World Challenge is back on the schedule this year. “There wasn’t a doubt whether we could stage it. The question was whether we could get the necessary corporate support,” said Greg McLaughlin, the president of the Tiger Woods Foundation who also runs his tournaments. “We’re happy that we have a lot of support for the event that we’ve been able to generate the last few months.” The tournament is scheduled for Dec. 5-8 at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where it has been since 2001. Graeme McDowell is the defending champion. The Challenge is one of three tournaments this year that benefit the Foundation. The others are the AT&T National, which has one more year on its contract, and the Deutsche Bank Championship outside Boston. The foundation has taken over operations of that event from IMG.

drink. It was the 16th no-hitter in Cincinnati history. No Reds pitcher had thrown a no-no at home since Tom Browning’s 1-0 perfect game against the Dodgers at Riverfront Stadium on Sept. 16, 1988. Bailey became the third pitcher in the history of baseball’s first professional franchise to get more than one. Vander Meer threw the only back-toback no-hitters in major-league history in 1938, beating Boston and Brooklyn. Maloney had a no-hitter at Wrigley Field in 1965 and one at home against Houston in 1969. Shin-Soo Choo hit Lincecum’s fifth pitch deep to right. Hunter Pence jumped above the wall and had the ball deflect off the heel of his glove back into play. The umpires initially ruled it a home run but overturned the call after a review and gave Choo a double. He eventually scored on Joey Votto’s sac fly. Phillips hit a drive into the first row in left field in the sixth inning, his 12th homer, for a 3-0 lead.

Grand Slam title. So are the other women left at the least predictable Wimbledon in memory: fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, 20th-seeded Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium and 23rd-seeded Sabine Lisicki of Germany. It’s the first time in the 45-year Open era that no previous major champion

reached the women’s semifinals at the All England Club. On Thursday, Bartoli faces Flipkens and Radwanska faces Lisicki. Bartoli is the only one who hasn’t lost a set — and she’s also the only one who hasn’t faced a past major champion.

Lisicki beat three along the way, most stunningly 16-time Grand Slam titlist Serena Williams in the fourth round Monday, then followed that by eliminating 46th-ranked Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 6-3, 6-3 in the quarterfinals. Flipkens, who missed two months last season because of blood clots in her leg, continued her climb back from outside the top 250 in the rankings by winning her first major quarterfinal, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 over 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova. Radwanska, who lost last year’s Wimbledon final to Williams, got past 2011 French Open champion Li Na 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-2. She entered Tuesday only 1-7 in Grand Slam quarterfinals but made the kind of stand she usually doesn’t at that stage, saving four set points while Li served at 5-4 in the first. After taking that tie-breaker, there were some shaky moments for Radwanska, who blew a 4-2 lead in the second set. After Li evened the match, Radwanska requested treatment from a trainer, who wrapped the player’s right thigh with white tape and massaged her back. She needed eight match points to put away Li, including six in the closing game, which lasted 10 minutes. But Radwanska finally did it, setting up a reunion of sorts with Lisicki, someone she faced when they were juniors playing under-12 events. Against Kanepi, 0-5 in major quarterfinals, Lisicki displayed the powerful serves, returns and groundstrokes that ended Williams’ 34-match winning streak, even mixing in a half-dozen dropshot winners. Lisicki broke Kanepi at the outset and went through only a brief blip, double-faulting three times in a game to trail 2-1 in the second set. From there, Lisicki won five out of six games to reach her second Wimbledon semifinal.

DETROIT (AP) — Three years ago, U.S. car buyers started trickling back into showrooms after largely sitting out the recession. That trickle has turned into a flood. From owners of revitalized small businesses that need to replace aging pickups to new hires who need a fresh set of wheels for the daily commute, increasingly confident buyers pushed auto sales back to pre-recession levels in the first six months of this year. Sales in the January-June period topped 7.8 million, their best first half since 2007, according to Autodata Corp. and Ward’s AutoInfoBank. The outlook for the rest of 2013 is just as strong. The factors boosting sales — low interest rates, wider credit availability, rising home construction and hot new vehicles — will be around for a while, and experts are hard-pressed for answers when asked what could slow things down. “It all points to continuing improvement in the auto market,” said Mustafa Mohatarem, General Motors chief economist. Analysts expect total sales of around 15.5 million cars and trucks in 2013, which would be 1 million more than in 2012. New cars and trucks sold at an annualized rate of 15.96 million in June, the fastest monthly pace since

BUSINESS Auto sales maintain momentum, led by pickups Prepaid funeral is a
December 2007. From January to May, the pace averaged 15.2 million, according to Jessica Caldwell, a senior analyst at car buying site Demand for big pickups has been the driving force. GM, Ford and Chrysler sold 157,480 full-size pickup trucks combined in June. That is up around 25 percent from the same month a year ago and almost double the number the companies sold in June 2009, a year when total sales sank to a 30-year low. GM said its new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, which went on sale last month, are spending just 10 days on dealer lots before being sold. A 60-day stay is typical. The pickup boom helps everyone, but especially the Detroit automakers, which sell the vast majority of trucks. And prices are rising as automakers add fancier features. Pickup trucks sold for an average $40,361 in June, up 2 percent from last year, according to Kelley Blue Book. But trucks weren’t the only thing driving sales. Small and subcompact cars sales were also strong, possibly because young graduates went shopping for a new car, said Kelley Blue Book analyst Alec Gutierrez. Relatively high gas prices also may have steered some buyers to more fuel-efficient models, he said. Gas averaged $3.60 a gallon nationwide in June, or 10 cents more than a year ago. Sales of Ford’s recently updated Fiesta subcompact more than doubled, while the Hyundai Elantra small car saw a 22-percent gain. Family-haulers also did well to start the summer road trip season. Honda said sales of its Odyssey minivan jumped 26 percent. The Toyota RAV4 SUV was up 36 percent, while sales of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV rose 33 percent. Consumer confidence hit a six-year high in June. And the Standard & Poor’s 500 index had its best first half since 1998, up 12.6 percent. Those measures correlate strongly to auto sales, since people have to feel optimistic and financially secure before buying a car. At the same time, rates on auto loans remained near historic lows in June. The rate on a four-year new-car loan is averaging 2.7 percent, according to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has pledged to keep shortterm interest rates at record lows until the unemployment rate hits 6.5 percent, if not longer. The unemployment rate is currently 7.6 percent. Auto loan rates are pegged to short-term rates, so car buyers should enjoy low financing terms for a while longer.

Obama admin delays major requirement of health law
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a major concession to business groups, the Obama administration Tuesday unexpectedly announced a one-year delay, until 2015, in a central requirement of the new health care law that medium and large companies provide coverage for their workers or face fines. “We have heard concerns about the complexity of the requirements and the need for more time to implement them effectively,” Treasury Assistant Secretary Mark Mazur said in a blog post. “We have listened to your feedback and we are taking action.” Under the law, companies with 50 or more workers must provide affordable coverage to their full-time employees or risk a series of escalating tax penalties if just one worker ends up getting government-subsidized insurance. Business groups have complained since the law passed that the provision was too complicated. The unexpected decision is sure to anger liberals and labor groups, but it could provide cover for Democratic candidates in next year’s congressional elections. While the White House sacrificed timely implementation of a key element of President Barack Obama’s health care law, the move also undercuts Republican efforts to make the overhaul and the costs associated with new requirements a major issue in congressional races. Democrats are defending 21 Senate seats to the Republicans’ 14, and the GOP had already started to excoriate Senate Democrats who had voted for the health law in 2009. Senior White House adviser Valerie Jarret cast the decision as part of an effort to simplify data reporting requirements. She said since enforcing the coverage mandate is dependent on businesses reporting about their workers’ access to insurance, the administration decided to postpone the reporting requirement, and with it, the mandate to provide coverage. We have and will continue to make changes as needed,” Jarrett wrote in a White House blog post. “In our ongoing discussions with businesses we have heard that you need the time to get this right. We are listening.”

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Rail workers and transit officials agreed Tuesday to resume contract talks to end a two-day strike that has caused chaotic commutes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and prompted businesses to claim the walkout is costing the region millions of dollars. The move came as political pressure mounted for a settlement. In a letter, the state controller, lieutenant governor and insurance commissioner urged both sides to return to the bargaining table. Negotiations were scheduled to start at 6 p.m. PDT between the Bay Area Rapid Transit agency and the two largest unions representing train workers. Calls seeking comment from the agency and unions were not immediately returned. The letter from the Democratic state officials said the strike has caused “widespread personal hardship and severe economic disruption,” and noted they were disappointed “about the lack of productive proposals and counter-proposals in the days leading up to the strike.” Gov. Jerry Brown did not sign the letter and has said little publicly about the strike. His office did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment on whether he might get involved or what options he might exercise to end the walkout. The Bay Area Council, a business-sponsored public policy advocacy organization, estimated the strike was costing the region $73 million a day in diminished productivity by workers delayed in traffic or forced into longer commutes using other forms of transit.

Talks to resume to end strike that stymied commute

The figure was based on state and regional data, anecdotal evidence of commute times, and assumptions about how many people telecommute, said Rufus Jeffris, a spokesman for the group. Stephen Levy, director of the Center for Continuing Study of the California Economy in Palo Alto, countered that the disruption might be annoying but the impact is minimal on the $600 billion a year regional economy. “There are no permanent losses,” he said. “People work from home, people work harder later the next day or make it up later. The money not being spent in San Francisco remains in the pockets of people who can spend it at home.” Commutes in the region were thrown into chaos when the strike began early Monday after talks with management broke down. BART is the nation’s fifthlargest rail system and carries passengers from the furthest reaches of San Francisco’s densely populated eastern suburbs to San Francisco International Airport across the bay. Freeways have choked to a standstill. Lines for ferry service tripled, and boats were crammed to standing-room only. Buses were stuffed with riders who felt fortunate to be on board after many commuters were literally left in the dust when buses zoomed by without as much as a honk or an explanation. About a hundred people waited single-file at the downtown Berkeley bus station. Some had watched multiple, full F buses cruise by for hours.

DEAR BRUCE: I am 61 years old and had planned to Bruce Williams pay into a prepaid funeral. My friends think I’m too young for this and advise that I would just be giving money to the bank (in an escrow account). Their suggestions include putting the money in a CD or life insurance. What do you think? -- Sam, via email DEAR SAM: I don’t agree with your friends at all. You could check out tomorrow or stick around for another 20 years. The prepaid funeral is a very thoughtful gift to leave behind. You decide on the budget, the type of ceremony, cremation vs. casket burial, etc. Who better than you to make those decisions? Many undertakers sell prepaid funeral plans. Then, even though funeral rates go up, yours does not. They should have some arrangement that provides a full refund, with interest, should you decide to move and, as a consequence, not need their services. Putting the money into a CD or life insurance is not a bad idea. It’s where your comfort level lies. With the prepaid funeral, however, you’ve made a specific plan. You’re not just leaving a lump sum of money and requiring someone else to make all the decisions. DEAR BRUCE: I am a 73-year-old widow with a $150,000 balloon mortgage coming due in one year. The house is worth $350,000. I expect to move in about three years to an independent living community. Would it be best to pay off the balloon from part of my savings (mutual funds) or refinance the mortgage? -- T.P., via email DEAR T.P.: You have a balloon coming due in one year, but two years after that you expect to move into an independent living community. It seems to me that you should consider selling the house now. A sale is not going to happen overnight; it might take a year or more to fix up the house and get it sold. If you sell now, you can ask whatever price you think is reasonable and, if the house doesn’t move, you have time to lower the price. If you are fortunate and someone comes in with a good offer, you can sell and either move to the independent living community earlier or rent an apartment or small home for the next two years. If you decide not to sell now, I would be inclined to pay off the mortgage instead of refinancing for only two years, assuming that you have the money in savings. This, of course, assumes the money is not earning a large return. If whatever you’re invested in is doing extremely well (I don’t think a mutual fund would meet that description), you might wish to get a new mortgage. But for just two years, I would fix up the house and recapture the costs when you sell. DEAR BRUCE: I am in the middle of a divorce. I built a consulting business from scratch, and I am the sole employee. Her attorney says the business is worth $800,000, with $150,000 annual gross revenue. Since I am the only employee, and since without me there is no business, how do you put value on something like this? -- Reader, via email DEAR READER: You have an interesting situation, given that if you decide to leave, there is no business. On the other hand, you’re not going to do that because of the $150,000 annual gross revenue. This could be a battle, particularly when you’re talking about the $800,000 value of the business. It is a matter of negotiation, and I trust you’ve selected an attorney who is reasonably adroit in such matters. There are enterprises that hold themselves out as experts in attempting to value businesses like yours. You may want to consult with one. Also, if I were you, I would do my best to have my attorney negotiate a one-time price rather than have to pay a percentage of my annual income forever. Another option is an arrangement where you would pay what amounts to alimony for a relatively modest period. If there are other assets to be distributed, you might try to negotiate an agreement in which she would get the other assets and you would retain complete control over your business. DEAR BRUCE: I have an idea that I believe to be unique in the pet supply industry, and I have nowhere to go with it. There are many companies that will help you with your inventions. However, I can’t help but believe that most of them are not legitimate and that they will take your idea if it’s decent and run with it. -- Reader, via email DEAR READER: Let’s take your last comment first -- that most of the companies that advertise they will help with inventions are either not legitimate or, at the very least, disingenuous. Personally, I would not have anything to do with them. Is your unique idea something that can be patented? If you think it might be, get an attorney’s opinion. If the attorney agrees, you can look forward to spending a couple of years and several thousand dollars on the patent process. The fact is, most companies will not talk with someone such as yourself unless you have a patent or sign away all of your rights. If you get a patent and can work out an arrangement with a company, you have it made. On the other hand, unless you’re prepared to invest money in this idea, what do you have to lose?

AGRIBUSINESS Cover crops can improve soil health
BY JAMES J. HOORMAN OSU-Extension Ag Educator With wheat soon to be harvested, think about planting cover crops to improve their soil health. There are four major types of cover crops including grasses, legumes, brassica and others. Grasses tend to accumulate nutrients with their fibrous root system and generally make phosphorus more available. They generally have a higher carbon to nitrogen (C:N) ratio. Major grasses include oats, wheat, cereal rye, annual ryegrass, Sudan-sorghum, and barley. These grasses are a grown before soybeans, may absorb left over nitrogen from fertilizer or manure, are good erosion fighters and reduce soil compaction. Cereal rye (wide leaf) is a winter annual that germinates at 30F. Cereal rye improves soil compaction and suppresses weeds. Annual rye (narrow leaf) is another winter annual with a tremendous root system but may be hard to kill in spring. Sorghum Sudan is a summer annual that dies with the first frost so it needs to be seeded immediately after wheat harvest. Mow or chop after it grows 3 feet tall to promote tillering with 5-9X more root growth after cutting. Oats winter kills with temperatures below 20F, has good root growth, easy to plant and manage, and no need for herbicide in spring. Wheat seed is easy to find, however; it is harder to kill in spring and has a poorer root system than cereal rye or annual rye. Farmers need to avoid planting wheat before Hessian fly free date to reduce pathogen or disease problems. Triticale (winter annual) and Teff (summer annual) are good cover crops for forages. Barley (winter annual) makes excellent cattle feed for forage or grain. Barley may be harvested 2-3 weeks before wheat and is good for double crop soybeans. Pearl Millet (summer annual) is a fast grower, good for short growing windows, good for heat or droughty conditions and excellent for grazing or forage value. Legumes are great producers of nitrogen, have a large taproot, and are generally grown before corn. Austrian winter peas (inoculated) are planted early in August growing 5 feet long but generally die with frost, however, they add 100-120#N to soil. Windham winter peas (inoculated) can be planted

Delphos members attend FFA Camp
Information submitted Eleven Delphos FFA members recently embarked on a journey to FFA Camp Muskingum. Their trip would take them to Carroll County, 4 1/2 hours from Delphos, to the home of FFA Camp. The week-long session members attended was packed full of leadership, team-building, communication and recreational activities. The members had the opportunity to meet and visit with this year’s State FFA Officer Team, relax and enjoy different aspects of camp and most importantly, create friendships with close to 300 other FFA members from across the state. During the week, Delphos members participated in four team-building and problem-solving-based workshops presented by the State Officers. They participated in various contests and

Delphos members attending FFA Camp included, front from left, Halee Heising, Sophia Wilson, Rileigh Tippie, Sophia Thompson, Desiree Wessel and Kiersten Teman; and back, Jordan Barclay, Riley Claypool, Wes Roby, Sydney Freund and Kaitlyn Cress. (Submitted photo) tournaments to earn points for their camp chapters. They took advantage of the opportunity to go swimming, kayaking, canoeing and motor-boating on Leesville Lake. The experience of being surrounded by new people allowed our members to share activities and experiences that they have gained with the Delphos FFA and learn about other activities that they could implement when they arrive home. FFA Camp was established in 1942 and during the five weeks, the camp is open to FFA members; over 1,000 of them will attend. The life skills that are gained at camp come in a different form than those that are usually presented in the classroom because of the relaxed camp environment. The experience has allowed Delphos members to experience personal growth and gain skills that are necessary for a successful future.

Farmers working to protect Ohio’s water
Information submitted COLUMBUS — As the peak season approaches for Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) on Ohio’s lakes, the Ohio farm community is pledging its best efforts to protect Ohio’s valuable water resources. An alliance of farm organizations, environmental advocates, academia, businesses and other interested parties have begun a multi-step initiative to positively affect water quality both short-term and over an extended time frame. The primary focus is on preventing the nutrient phosphorus from escaping from farm fields. While this nutrient is essential to producing food, fuel and fiber, it can drain from fields and feed the growth of HABs. University and other agricultural experts have made recommendations to protect water without reducing agricultural productivity. Many farmers are already taking steps as a down payment to address the part of the water quality problem caused by field runoff. —Farmers are using soil tests to avoid applying excessive amounts of fertilizer. One survey showed 82-percent compliance with Ohio State University-approved testing practices. — A pollution reduction project in the Lake Erie Basin reduced phosphorus applications by more than 180,000 pounds across 8,653

later, generally survive winter, and if allowed to grow in spring, can accumulate 75-100#N. Cowpeas is planted after wheat, need very little moisture to germinate, grow well in summer heat but die with frost. Cowpeas may accumulate 125-135 #N if inoculated and work well in mixtures because they are shadetolerant. Sunn hemp (summer annual) may get 10-15 feet tall with yellow flowers, and may produce 200#N (marble-size nodules if inoculated), works well in mixture, but dies with frost. Crimson clover works well in mixtures with oilseed radish (same size seed). If inoculated, crimson clover can produce 100-125#N but needs to be planted in August or early September to maximize growth. Crimson clover should survive most winters and should be allowed to grow as long as possible in spring to maximize N potential (bright red crimson flower). Red Clover tolerates wet soils and can be frost-seeded into wheat in late winter, producing 75-100# N but has a higher C:N ratio so it takes longer to release N than other legumes. Sweet Clover has a deep tap root, tolerates wet soils, produces 125-200#N, improves soil drainage and suppresses weeds. Works well in red clover or alsike mixtures and may also be frost-seeded into wheat. Brassicas include oilseed (Daikon- white root) radishes and turnips and are good for reducing soil compaction, kill or suppressing broadleaf weeds, and they accumulate soil nutrients (N-P-K). Radishes die at 15F and can have a nasty smell when they decompose. They fumigate the soil and promote earthworms. The root is 80% water and decays quickly when soils warm up. OSR grows well under cooler wetter conditions in late summer and early fall and works well in cover crop mixtures. Turnips are a winter annual with shorter taproot and bulb that can be grazed. Other cover crops include buckwheat, a summer annual, good for surface compaction, is great for attracting beneficial insects and honey bees, often used in mixtures. Sunflowers (summer annuals) loosen soils, work well in mixtures with peas or climbing cover crops, and attract bees and beneficial insects. Kale and rape/canola (winter annuals) grow fast in fall under cool temperatures and cool soil conditions. All cover crops improve soil health, increase soil organic matter, protect the soil from soil erosion, and many reduce soil pests.

The Herald – 11

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
THURSDAY, JULY 4, 2013 You are likely to be extremely fortunate in the year ahead when working with groups, clubs or large organizations. Social and material opportunities will be abundant in such areas. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your inclination might be to get others to help champion your chosen position. However, you’re likely to have much better results if you leave everybody out. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Don’t think that material things will provide the gratification you’re seeking. Friendship and the company of loved ones will provide the warmth and harmony you crave. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -When it comes to a financial matter, your mate’s thinking might not be as astute as yours. Handle your differences diplomatically, but let good sense prevail. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If there is some kind of special work you need performed, check with friends who have had experience with this type of situation. Don’t hesitate to ask for references. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -If you have to make some changes that could affect others, be sure to alert everyone involved. Springing a surprise on others might invite outrage. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- A close friend or family member might make a promise to you that he or she couldn’t possibly keep. Don’t make an issue of it, just be ready to forgive and forget. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t fritter away your energy and/or time on things that won’t contribute to your status or well-being. You’re in an expansive cycle where many opportunities exist. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Overall conditions look to be quite favorable, with the exception of any situation that involves speculation. Be careful when operating in chancy waters. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -You should know better than most that disappointment is likely if your expectations are not within rational bounds. Be reasonable and logical when making an assessment. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Even though you’re on the right track, you should allow plenty of time for your plans to mature. Don’t get ahead of yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- As you’re still in a lucky cycle where your finances and commercial affairs are concerned, be alert for a new opportunity. Things will continue to go well. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Success is likely for you, provided you don’t impulsively switch objectives. You need to stick with your current endeavors, even if things are going somewhat slow. FRIDAY, JULY 5, 2013 A number of opportunities are likely to develop for in the year ahead that could make it possible for you to generate income from more than one source. It’s a condition you always wanted to happen, but never thought possible. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -A friend is anxious to talk about a personal issue, but is hesitant to do so. It might be up to you to put your pal at ease. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Although you might not be too lucky with intangible involvements, all the good will you’re able to generate will end up being more valuable than money. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It’ll be important to be flexible where your important objectives are concerned. Circumstances are likely to necessitate changing your tactics at a moment’s notice. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Your best ideas are apt to come when reviewing situations that you successfully handled in past, which are similar to what you’re facing now. Trade on experience. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A couple of rewarding situations could develop from two separate involvements. Both will involve distinctly different groups or organizations. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You shouldn’t have too much trouble finding several solutions to a critical issue. The only problem you might have is deciding which one to use. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Try to use your free time as productively as possible. If you don’t, you might end up writing today off as wasted. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It’s OK to enjoy yourself as much as possible, but be sure to seek both mental and physical stimulation. Relax and have fun while improving your mind and body. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Do your best to keep your priorities in good order. First, attend to your important obligations so that they’re not hanging over your head the entire day. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You might be surprised by what you can learn simply by spending some quality time with a few bright pals. Additionally, it would be smart to ask a lot of questions. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Don’t hesitate to spend some time with a friend who has been indebted to you for some time. You could be in for a pleasant surprise when he or she picks up the tab. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- This is likely to be an extremely busy day in which you might have to handle several problems simultaneously. Fortunately, you’ll be able do so with grace and aplomb.

Bolivian leader’s plane rerouted on Snowden fear
LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — The plane carrying Bolivian President Evo Morales home from Russia was rerouted to Austria on Tuesday after France and Portugal refused to let it cross their airspace because of suspicions that NSA leaker Edward Snowden was on board, the country’s foreign minister said. Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca denied that Snowden was on the plane, which landed in Vienna, and said France and Portugal would have to explain why they canceled authorization for the plane. “We don’t know who invented this lie. We want to denounce to the international community this injustice with the plane of President Evo Morales,” Choquehuanca said from La Paz. Morales had earlier met with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a summit of major gas exporters in the Kremlin. In an interview with Russia Today television, Morales said that his South American country would be willing to consider granting asylum to Snowden. Leaks by Snowden, a former NSA systems analyst, have revealed the NSA’s sweeping data collection of U.S. phone records and some Internet traffic, though U.S. intelligence officials have said the programs are aimed at targeting foreign-

close attention to the weather forecast. And they should post lookouts. Those are standards the government follows to protect firefighters, which were toughened after a wildfire tragedy in Colorado nearly two decades ago. On Tuesday, investigators from around the U.S. were arriving in Arizona to examine whether 19 highly trained firefighters who perished over the weekend heeded those rules or ignored them and paid with their lives. In the nation’s biggest loss of firefighters since 9/11, violent wind gusts Sunday turned what was believed to be a relatively manageable lightning-ignited forest fire in the town of Yarnell into a death trap that left no escape for the team of Hotshots willing to go to the hottest part of the blaze. The tragedy raised questions of whether the crew should have been pulled out much earlier and whether all the usual precautions would have made any difference at all in the face of triple-digit temperatures, erratic winds and tinderbox conditions that caused the fire to explode. In 1994, 14 firefighters died on Colorado’s Storm King Mountain, and investigators afterward found numerous errors in the way the blaze was fought. In the Storm King tragedy, a rapid change in weather sent winds raging, creating 100foot tongues of flame. Firefighters were unable to escape, as a wall of fire raced up a hillside. The U.S. Forest Service revised its firefighting policies as a result of the blaze. “The reforms after Storm King were collectively intended to prevent that from happening again, which was mass entrap-

Investigators to examine why Ariz. blaze killed 19 Bombs bursting in air: PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — Fire crews ment of an entire Hotshot crew,” said needed anything. “He did exactly what he was supposed battling a wildfire should identify escape Lloyd Burton, professor of environmenJuly 4 nightmare for dogs routes and safe zones. They should pay tal law and policy at the University of to,” Ward said Tuesday of McDonough,
Colorado. “There are so many striking parallels between this tragedy and what happened on Storm King in 1994, it’s almost haunting.” Those changes included policies that say no firefighters should be deployed unless they have a safe place to retreat. They must also be continuously informed of changing weather. “If you don’t have those things in place, it’s not advisable to deploy a team in the first place, because you can’t guarantee their safety,” Burton said. The Hotshot team from Prescott entered the smoky wilderness over the weekend with backpacks, chain saws and other heavy gear to remove brush and trees and deprive the flames of fuel. But the blaze grew from 200 acres to about 2,000 in a matter of hours as “the wind kicked up to 40 to 50 mph gusts and it blew east, south, west — every which way,” said Prescott City Councilman Len Scamardo. “What limited information we have was there was a gust of wind from the north that blew the fire back and trapped them,” Scamardo said. The crew’s only surviving member, Brendan McDonough, was on a hill top working as the lookout when the winds picked up, said Wade Ward, spokesman for the Prescott Fire Department. McDonough notified the other Hotshots that the weather was changing rapidly and that the fire had switched direction because of the wind. McDonough also told his fellow crew members that he was leaving the immediate area because he was in danger and asked them if they who was in his third season with the unit. Retired smoke jumper Art Morrison, a spokesman for the Arizona State Forestry Division, said it’s essentially a judgment call as to whether a spot can work as a safe haven to escape to if the flames suddenly blow toward crews and they have to flee for their lives. “Whatever they used as a safety zone just didn’t work,” he said. Dick Mangan, a retired U.S. Forest Service safety official and consultant, said it is too early to say if the crew or those managing the fire made mistakes. “This just might have been a weather anomaly that nobody saw coming that happened too quickly to respond to,” Mangan said. He said the crew members might have taken too many risks because they were on familiar ground and were trying to protect a community they knew well. “When you’ve got especially structures and residences involved, and you’ve got local resources, there’s a fair amount of social and political pressure, some of it self-generated by the firefighters, who want to do a good job,” Mangan said. “They don’t want to see a community burn down. They want to get in there.” A team of fire officials drawn from across the country by Atlanta NIMO, or National Incident Management Organization, arrived in the area Tuesday to find out exactly what went wrong. They plan to make their way into the charred fire scene and issue a preliminary report in the coming days, said Mary Rasmussen, a spokeswoman for the Southwest Area Incident Management Team.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Liberty is loud and a lot of dogs have problems with those Fourth of July sounds of freedom, Erika Gamez said. She should know — she takes care of over 150 at work and five at home. On Thursday, the 150 dogs, 150 cats and all the other creatures at the Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care and Adoption Center will be moved inside the buildings, said Gamez, the Southern California shelter’s animal care supervisor. Classical music will be played throughout the center in the early evening to soothe animals that have sensitive hearing and can’t tolerate loud noise. Once the booming starts, it gets noisy inside with a cacophony of barking, whining and crying as some dogs panic about the fireworks and others freak out because of their spooked shelter mates. The cats don’t seem to mind fireworks, but get stressed at all the commotion. “It’s a trickle-down effect,” Gamez said. Similar scenes will play out in homes, backyards and public parks across the country, leading some anxious hounds to fly the coop, which explains why more lost dogs are turned in to shelters on July 5 than any other day of the year. Dogs that can’t escape could hurt themselves in other ways trying to seek shelter from the thundering sounds that could last days as fireworks are launched throughout the weekend. In Rancho Cucamonga, employees will handle 20 to 30 more dogs than usual that day, Gamez said. She has scheduled extra employees. Because July 4 is on a Thursday this year, fireworks shows will be spread over three nights. Add fireworks bought from booths in many cities across the country and it promises to be a long, booming weekend. Dogs have more sensitive ears than humans do and while some dogs don’t appear to mind the noise, others will bark, whine, howl, hide, cower or run into furniture and walls, said Dr. Melissa Bain of the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine’s Clinical Animal Behavior Service. When she was an animal control officer, Dr. Kate F. Hurley, now director of the Koret Shelter Medicine Program at Davis’ Center for Companion Animal Health, said she saw dogs jump through plate glass windows when fireworks went off. She handled other dogs that jumped fences, slipped leashes and broke through doors. No one can explain why one dog will hide and another will bolt, Bain said.

Living in the foothills of the Appalachian region, technology was slow to come to the area. Cars, telephones and televisions were truly a luxury. Dupler walked the steep, hilly terrain for fouryears to and from her work in Nelsonville before she bought her first car. “I cried once, while I walked to work,” she said emphatically. “I made up my mind that I was not going to cry anymore.” After the Egg Auction moved to Somerset, Ohio, Dupler traveled there for work each day. In 1958, she was offered an inspector’s position at Gressel Produce by the owner Phil Gressel. “He [Phil] was just getting started when he offered me the job,” she recalled. Dupler moved to Delphos in 1959 with her youngest daughter, Nancy (Hawk) Rosen, who was a high school senior at the time and attended Jefferson Senior High, which is now Jefferson Middle School. Delphos had much more

to offer the family—a job with the State of Ohio and the conveniences of living in a small town versus in the rolling hills of a countryside. Dupler’s job was to inspect and double-check all the eggs that passed through a huge candling machine. “I held two eggs in each hand and twisted them around, checking the shape,” Dupler said. “The shell would indicate if it was a good egg.” Dupler spent the rest of her career at Gressel Produce and retired in the early 1980s. As a member of the Methodist Church, Dupler spent a great deal of time volunteering at the Interfaith Thrift Store. She now resides in Vancrest Health Care Center and loves having people drop by to reminisce about working at Gressel’s, the Thrift Store or any other topic of interest. Currently, Dupler’s family includes five generations: three daughters; nine grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and eight greatgreat-grandchildren.


ers and terrorist suspects mostly overseas. He is believed to be in a Moscow airport transit area, seeking asylum from one of more than a dozen countries. “This is a hostile act by the United States State Department which has used various European governments,” said Bolivian Defense Minister Ruben Saavedra, who was on the flight. Choquehuanca said in a statement that after France and Portugal canceled authorization for the flight, Spain’s government allowed the plane to be refueled in its territory. From there the plane flew on to Vienna. He said the decision by France and Portugal “put at risk the life of the president.” Austrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Schallenberg told The Associated Press that Snowden is not with Morales and that the Bolivian president is spending the night at a Vienna hotel. Snowden has applied for asylum in Venezuela, Bolivia and 18 other countries, according to WikiLeaks, a secret spilling website that has been advising him. Many European countries on the list — including Austria, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Switzerland — said he would have to make his request on their soil.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — “Punky Brewster” and the kids from “Saved by the Bell” are returning to the small screen through digital comic books. So, too, are “Knight Rider,” ”Airwolf” and “Miami Vice.” Lion Forge Comics and NBC Universal said Tuesday they partnered to develop, write, illustrate and publish digital comics based on those shows from the 1980s and 1990s, bringing new stories for characters

like Crocket and Tubbs as well as Kit and Screech. The comics are set to be released later this year through iTunes, Amazon’s Kindle Bookstore, Barnes & Nobles’ Nook store and Kobo. The NBC Universalowned shows are the latest in a growing push that has seen other TV properties extend their stories in comics, most recently “The X-Files” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

Berquist laid out options to maximize the plant’s capacity, including a bare minimum of replacing a full train of plates at $300,000. “We knew we were going to have to do this; just not this soon,” Berquist added. Other work includes an upgrade to the plant’s computer system at $66,000 and separating the air handlers at a cost of $130,000. Berquist said he is working on Ohio Public Works and Direct Emergency Financial Assistance (EPA) grants to cover some of the cost of the upgrades. “Neither of those will be available until next year but with engineering and other pre-project activity, that should be about right,” Berquist said. “Something needs to be done so at the end of the day, the EPA is happy.” Council heard on first reading legislation allowing Berquist to prepare and submit application for OPWC State Capital Improvement and/or Local Transportation Improvement programs with the city’s share being 20 percent to help cover the cost of the wastewater treatment plant upgrades. Council also heard on first reading a measure allowing Berquist to apply for OPWC funds for an East Second Street capital improvement project from Douglas Street to Main


Street. The proposed project is estimated at $188,757 with the city’s share $37,751. On second reading, council heard legislation addressing residents who fail to maintain their properties to city ordinances. The proposed ordinance raises the charge to have uncontrolled vegetation growth removed by the city to include but not be limited to: $200 minimum for the first hour or any increment thereof and $100 for any hour any increment thereof after the first hour and a $50 administrative fee. Currently, the city does the work for $50 per hour and a $25 administrative fee. Also heard on second reading was a resolution to donate one family season pass valued at $195 to Community Health Professionals for the annual banquet. In other business, Councilman Rick Hanser asked about the new Cass Street water loop. Berquist explained the water is flowing properly and testing has shown the quality as good as anywhere in the city. Councilman Josh Gillespie questioned what the situation was with the signage at the new liquor establishment on Main Street. Berquist said the owner, Paul Lehmkuhle, is in the process of filing variance paperwork for the sign. “He has a certain amount of time to turn that in and we’ll go from there,” Berquist said. He added that currently, the signage is in the right-of-way.

Answers to Monday’s questions: The Western resort town of Jackson, Wyoming, was the first city in the U.S. to be totally governed by women. Jackson elected a woman mayor and women to its four city council seats in 1920, the year the 19th Amendment gave women the right to vote. The first Hollywood movie based on a Saturday Night Live TV skit was The Blues Brothers in 1980. Today’s questions: When it comes to fables, what is an epimyth? Which movie studio, before becoming a major success, won advertising industry honors for its clever TV commercials for Listerine and Life Savers? Answers in Friday’s Herald. Today’s joke: A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the subject of marriage counseling came up. “Oh! We’ll never need that. My husband and I have a great relationship,” the wife explained. “He was a communications major in college, and I majored in theater arts. He communicates really well, and I just act like I’m listening.”


“Without regionalization, if five communities each have their own water and wastewater treatment facility, they are required to each have licensed personnel in charge of operations at each facility,” wrote Williams in the grant application. “They are also responsible for the delivery of drinking water as well as water for processing with respect to some businesses and industries. If any of those communities choose to build or rebuild a facility, they must make a large investment, paid by increased rates to consumers.” Under a regional system, if five communities were to collaborate to build one facility each to serve the entire population, consumers would share in the initial costs as well as operations and maintenance of one facility for water and wastewater. According to the grant application, the consumers should benefit economically by consolidating costs. “The consumer should be able to address the costly regulatory demands by spreading these costs over a larger consumer groups,” wrote Williams in the application. “Also, the residential consumer should have more discretionary money to reinvest in the community through the purchase of durable goods, thus helping to further stimulate the economy.” Williams also goes on to claim that businesses and industries should have more investment capital to invest in the community which should increase their tax base. The change would require a 6119,

where things are currently operated under a 6117. In the Ohio Revised Code, chapter 6117 states that, “For the purpose of preserving and promoting the public health and welfare, a board of county commissioners may lay out, establish, consolidate, or otherwise modify the boundaries of, and maintain, one or more sewer districts within the county and outside municipal corporations and may have a registered professional engineer make the surveys necessary for the determination of the proper boundaries of each district.” Chapter 6119 states that, “any area situated in any unincorporated part of one or more contiguous counties or in one or more municipal corporations, or both, may be organized as a regional water and sewer district in the manner and subject to the conditions provided in Chapter 6119. of the Revised Code, for either or both of the following purposes: (A) To supply water to users within and without the district; (B) To provide for the collection, treatment and disposal of waste water within and without the district.” Before this can take place, they must begin by filing a petition in Putnam County Common Pleas Court. Public hearings are also required before a regional water and sewer district can be established. The memorandum submitted to the court include how it will effectively serve customers, a plan of operation and issues and how they are addressed. According to Commissioner John

Love, villages do not have to be a part of the program. “It will work like a co-op but if say, Columbus Grove doesn’t want to be a part of it, they don’t have to be,” said Love. Ottawa Municipal Director Jack Williams likes the idea of a 6119 because it takes the politics out of it. “With a 6119, the board is essentially non-political,” said Williams. “The positions are appointed. It also goes by district so it can go across county line. That way it takes the politics out of it.” A district would be run by a board of trustees that cannot include a majority of elected officials from the district. Under a regional system, rates would be based on resident per dwelling or linear pie fee. It is based on the district and what is considered fair for all by the appointed board. Commission Vince Schroeder is not opposed but warns the savings may be farther down the line and not instantly felt. “You will have a 6119 but then you need a project to go with it,” said Schroeder. “The cost of the project would be the same with or without a 6119. Maybe down the road it will save money.” Williams cites the size of many of the communities as a reason to move forward with regionalization. “A lot of communities are too small to be building their own plant,” said Williams. As it stands, commissioners are having discussions with Miller City officials about providing sewer services for their town.
