Phil Dirt and the Dozers at Stadium Park
Back by popular demand, Phil Dirt and the Dozers will play Stadium Park on
Sunday for the fourth installment of the Delphos Rotary Clubs Music in the Park
series. Americas premiere Rock N Roldies review expresses musical talent with
high energy and a contagious sense of humor. Phil Dirt & The Dozers will transport
listeners to the 1950s and 60s for classic music of the era. Imagine hearing The Four
Seasons Sherry with the original falsetto vocals intact, the Righteous Brothers
Unchained Melody or Youve Lost That Lovin Feeling or Pretty Woman and
In Dreams by Roy Orbison. Party on the beach with The Beach Boys and imagine
the Platters Only You performed with all the scratches and skips found on a well-
worn 33 1/3 record, the way The Dozers first learned it. The Phil Dirt time machine
also stops by the 1970s for hits from the Doobie Brothers, Grand Funk Railroad,
Eagles and the OJays. The concert begins at 6 p.m. Food and refreshments will be
served beginning at 5:30 p.m. (Delphos Herald file photo)

The Dienstberger
Foundation & Family
Most residents of our fine com-
munity have heard of the Arnold C.
Dienstberger Foundation and its gener-
osity. In fact, we have all been touched
by this foundation in one way or another
through grants which have been award-
ed to the many organizations in the
Delphos School District. However, did
you know how this foundation was
It all began back in 1963, when
Arnold C. Dienstbeerger set up an irre-
vocable trust as a memorial of his wife,
Emma, who passed away on the 31st
day of July in 1963.
Arnold was born 12 March 1892
in Delphos to Charles and Rose
(Wiedeman) Dienstberger. He mar-
ried Emma Buchholtz on 2 December
1924. They each had several siblings
but their marriage was not blessed with
children. Emma was born in Middle
Point, the daughter of Lewis and Mary
Buchholtz. At the time of her death in
1963, she was survived by two brothers:
Herman F. Buchholtz of Delphos and
Charles L. Buchholtz of Van Wert; and
two sisters, Mrs. Howard Hughes of
Van Wert and Mrs. Anna Showalter of
Fort Wayne. A brother and sister were
deceased. Emma was a member of St.
Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church, the
American Lutheran Church Women and
the Delphos Chapter No. 25, Order of
the Eastern Star. Her burial was in the
family mausoleum in the Walnut Grove
Arnold spent most of his life in
Delphos. At one time, the Dienstbergers
made their home at 627 W. Fifth St. in
Delphos. His siblings were Cedelia, who
married A. O. Smith; William C., who
married Zoe Dill; and Carl, who married
Mollie Smith.
Arnold was a member of St. Peters
Lutheran Church in Delphos. He gradu-
ated from the University of Chicago Law
School, was a veteran of World War I
and a member of the Delphos American
Legion and the Delphos Post 3035,
VFW. He was a member of the Delphos
Chapter 105 Royal Arch Masons, the
Delphos Council 72 Royal and Select
Masters, and a 50 year member of Hope
Lodge 214, Free and Accepted Masons.
Dienstberger purchased the City Fuel
in 1924 from F. O. Brotherton and sold
the business and retired in 1942. Arnold
Dienstberger passed away 16 June
,1980, at the Delphos Memorial Home.
Services were at the Lutheran Church
with entombment in the family mauso-
leum at Walnut Grove Cemetery.
In 1964, Dienstberger made an
offer of $76,500 to build the Delphos
Memorial Home for the aged. The offer
was conditional upon the residents of
Delphos raising the additional funds
necessary to construct and operate the
home. The money was set aside in an
irrevocable trust. The home would be
self-sustaining. A group of Delphos and
area residents had just formed an organi-
zation to build an old folks home at the
intersection of US 30 North and South.
Dienstberger was a member of that com-
mittee. The town raised a substantial
amount of money for the project.
A timeline of the establishment of
nursing homes in Delphos might be
1963 Del Ward opened on West
Third Street, named in honor of Mary
Ward. George and Bertha Grothous
were managers.
1966 Del Ward was purchased by
the Dienstberger Foundation.
1966 The 50-bed Delphos
Memorial Home was built.
1973 An addition was added to
The Del Ward Home from a donation by
Dr. Chambers and named in honor of his
wife, Sarah Jane Chambers.
1978 A 50-bed expansion was
added to the Memorial Home.
1998 The Delphos Memorial
Home and the Sarah Jane Nursing
Home were sold to Vancrest.
Following the sale of these two
homes, the money became part of The
Arnold C. Dienstberger Foundation. The
Foundation began giving grants in 1998.
The grants for the first year amount-
ed to $62,800. By 2010, the grants
amounted to $300,000 and in 2011, it
was $305,000. This past year 2012, the
foundation gave $325,000 to a number
of organizations in the Delphos School
District. Since 1963, the Dienstberger
Foundation has given away 3.6 million
The Delphos Swimming Pool was
the recipient of a very generous gift of
$50,000 for needed repairs to the wall of
the pool. Without this grant, the wonder-
ful pool, a WPA Project in the 1940s,
might not have been able to open.
We should all be thankful to Arnold
and Emma Dienstberger for this won-
derful gift, and to the board of the foun-
dation for their diligent monitoring of
the whole of the foundation.
Current members of the board are Rick
Miller, Bill Massa, Doug Harter, Nick
Clark, Lonnie Miller, Doris Neumeier,
Jerry Gilden and John Nomina.
Some recipients of the grants are The
Delphos Police and Fire Departments,
both the public and parochial schools,
Stadium Project, Delphos Senior Citizen
Center, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, The St.
Vincent DePaul Society, The Delphos
Christmas Project, The Delphos Canal
Commission, The Postal Museum and
the Concerts in the Park. The foundation
also provided the money to purchase the
land for the Veterans Memorial Park.
The immigrant ancestor of the
Dienstberger families was Jacob, who
arrived in 1850 at the age of 18.
The history of the Dienstberger
Families will be continued on Aug. 10 in
the Delphos Herald.
Mathis Grocery and Bakery badly damaged
(Continued from last
Saturdays paper)
It was about 11 oclock
Monday night when E.E.
Mathis grocery and bakery, one
story frame building, between
the Walsh block and Wm.
Wagners brick building was
discovered on fire.
The blaze started about half
way between the front and rear,
directly over the brick oven on
the north side. It was very dif-
ficult to reach the fire owing to
the building having a double
roof and its position between the
high brick walls on either side. It
was some time before the blaze
was put out.
It was with great difficulty
that a crowd was restrained from
breaking in the door and making
an effort to carry out the goods,
which, had it been allowed,
would have been a very fool-
ish undertaking. All the goods
in the front end of the store are
It was fully an hour before
the last flickering flame was
quenched and the crowd left
for home. The bake room was
not touched by the fire or water
and head baker, Huffman, was
at work Tuesday as usual. No
attempt to conduct business will
be made until the insurance has
been adjusted. The building is
owned by C.G. Mathis of south
of Delphos, an uncle of E.E.

The millinery store of Mr.

Kate Eysenbach & Sister is

legal action has been discontin-
ued, the judgment paid and the
business will be conducted the
same as heretofore. The ladies

type of oil burner which is said
to produce a large amount of
heat from a given fuel. Another
Negro has invented a device to
regulate the light of a locomo-
tive so that the headlight will
follow the track when the engine
approaches a curve.
A Texas negro has devised a
car rail joint designed to prevent
the spreading of rails. While
a negro from Grand Rapids,
Mich., has invented the type-o-
phone, designed to record at the
other end of the wire, an exact
duplicate of the message which
the sender writes on the machine
before him.

Clover Leaf Shops

Delphos is not in the coal
mining district but this city is
due, nevertheless, to take the
place of the mines in case there
is a strike, as is now threatened
in the bituminous coal mining
Should the strike come,
Delphos will be one source of
coal supply for the Nickel Plate.
The Clover Leaf is now
engaged in piling up coal in the
local yards. Carload after car-
load of the black diamonds, is
being received here and piled up
as a reserve supply.
A steam shovel has been
brought in and is unloading the
coal at the rate of about 18 car-
loads a day. Already about 50
carloads have been stored here
and about 50 more are at the
yard ready to be unloaded.
More coal is on the way and
will also be stored here.
H.J. Truesdale, road foreman
of engines, has come to Delphos
from Frankfort and he and O.
Rosselit, general foreman at the
local shops, are supervising.

Harness Stolen
About a week ago, B.J.
Johnson, who lives about six
miles west of Delphos on Ridge
Road, reported to the officers
here that a set of harness had
been stolen from his barn. The
police have been on the look-
out but were unable to locate
them. Johnson, who had reasons
to believe that the harness had
been brought to Delphos, began
a search here and they were
finally located in the barn of
Harry Bowman, but he is of the
opinion that they were stolen
by another party. Johnson had
Bowman arrested, charging him
with concealing stolen property.
The defendant plead not guilty
and his bond was fixed at $100,
to appear for trial. Bond was
furnished and Bowman was

Delphos Boy Goes

To Philippines
A Delphos boy is now in San
Francisco, Calif., and leaves for
the Philippines in three weeks.
Casper Peifer of Troop B, 4th
Cavalry of Cleveland, O., now in
camp at Fort Presido, Calif., has
written to Mayor Cochran. After
four days on the train, passing
through tunnels and snow sheds
in the Rocky mountains, at one
place 49 miles in length and
plunging into darkness for two
hours, the 4th Cavalry arrived
safe in the land of flowers on
May 29th.
The letter states that the farm-
ers of California are harvesting
wheat and oats, oranges, cherries,
lemons, etc., are ripe, and flow-

Attorney General DeWine warns of utility scams
COLUMBUS Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is
warning consumers to beware of phone scams involving utili-
ties. Two Ohio consumers reported losing about $800 each after
receiving a call from someone claiming to represent a utility
company and demanding payment. Dozens of other consumers
are reporting unsolicited calls about lowering their energy rates.
With current technology, it can be difficult to determine if a
call is legitimate or a scam, and with fluctuating temperatures and
high bills, utility scams can be more effective, Attorney General
DeWine said. Its important to remember that any time you
receive an unexpected call, you have the right to ask questions,
demand answers or simply hang up.
In a recently reported scam, a caller pretending to represent
a utility company said the consumers electrical power would
be shut off unless the consumer sent hundreds of dollars using a
prepaid money card. In reality, the call was not coming from the
consumers utility company.
Consumers also are reporting unsolicited phone calls from
individuals claiming they can lower consumers natural gas rates.
The Attorney Generals Office has received approximately 100
complaints about these calls in the last two months, and more
than 80 of the complaints were filed since July 1. In the com-
plaints, consumers from Northeast Ohio generally report receiv-
ing a call from a 740 or 440 area code phone number. The caller
claims to represent Dominion and offers a discount or a lower gas
rate. Dominion East Ohio says these calls are not from Dominion
and that the business does not solicit consumers over the phone.
Consumers can help protect themselves by following these
Dont trust your caller ID. Callers can disguise the number
that appears on your caller ID, making it very difficult to deter-
mine where a call is coming from.
Dont respond to robocalls. Even if the call instructs you to
press a button to opt out, dont follow the instructions. By press-
ing a button, you confirm that you have an active phone number
and you may receive even more calls.
Ask callers to identify themselves and provide written infor-
mation. If they refuse, it is probably not a legitimate business.
Know your rights. Natural gas and electric companies gener-
ally must give you a 14-day notice before disconnecting your
service. Contact the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, www., to learn more and to compare electric or natural
gas offers in your region.
When in doubt, hang up. If a caller claims to represent your
utility company but makes threats or demands immediate pay-
ment, hang up and call your utility company using a number you
know to be legitimate, such as a number on your most recent
Beware of requests for prepaid money cards. This is a pre-
ferred payment method for scammers.
Dont give out personal information over the phone.
Consumers who suspect a scam or an unfair business practice
should contact the Ohio Attorney Generals Office at 800-282-
0515 or
Last year, I met with members
of the Shefton family of Cleveland.
They lived near a former lead smelt-
er site, but had to move when one of
their sons was diagnosed with high-
lead levels in his blood. No Ohio
family or business should be forced
to relocate because of hazardous
materials or contaminated properties
in its neighborhood. But unfortu-
nately, this happens all too often in our state.
In Ohio, parcels of land known as brown-
fields are left behind after a commercial
building or factory has been demolished or
abandoned. These brownfields can be found
in big cities and small towns in all parts of
the state. In fact, by some estimates, Ohio has
thousands of potential brownfield sites.
These brownfields dont belong in neigh-
borhoods where children walk to school, and
they dont belong in communities looking to
attract new businesses.
We need to redevelop these sites to make
way for new investments. Thats why Im
co-sponsoring legislation to clean-up, re-
invest in and re-develop these properties.
The Brownfields Utilization, Investment, and
Local Development (BUILD) Act would over-
haul the Environmental Protection Agencys
(EPA) existing Brownfields Program.
We know that by providing targeted fund-
ing and allowing increased flexibility, we
increase the likelihood that more sites are
cleaned up. Thats why the BUILD Act would
increase clean-up grants and more than double
the funding ceiling for remediation grants.
The legislation would also allow the
EPA to award multi-purpose grants,
which means federal resources could
be used for multiple elements of a
project, including site inventory and
planning and remediation for one or
more brownfields.
In order to increase flexibility
further, the bill also lets more non-
profits qualify for site-assessment
grants. Right now, nonprofits can
only apply for site clean-up grants,
but we know that local organizations
and community development groups have the
capacity to do so much more, especially in
smaller communities.
Finally, the BUILD Act maintains current
funding levels through Fiscal Year 2016.
Simply put, this means it would not be subject
to partisan fights during the next presidential
The BUILD Act is a perfect example
of a public-private partnership. By cleaning
up previously used sites for redevelopment
opportunities, we can attract private capital
back to our cities. If we can incentivize devel-
opers and businesses to locate in our towns,
we can increase local tax revenue and protect
our green spaces from continued develop-
The BUILD Act and the Brownfields pro-
gram play an integral role in revitalizing
vacant or abandoned properties to meet envi-
ronmental and public health challenges while
spurring economic development in Ohio.
We must do everything we can to ensure
the brownfields around our state are cleaned
up and are no longer eyesores in their com-

Moderately confused
On the
Other hand
Friday was the usual during the week Jay
is in Ocean City, Md. Work, work, work. Get
everything done. Then watch Lotus dance on
the live feed.
Jay has been raving about her all week. He
said shes been doing phenomenal. Well, Friday
proved that in spades. Our little Lotus Leaf was
named Future Star of the whole competition.
She will have her picture in the Star Power
magazine and its a huge award on a personal
level. She was told she is awesome!
We all know that. We dont need to be told.
When I first met my niece, she was just a
few months old. Her mom came home to Lima
from Alexandria, Va., so we could all meet the
newest addition to the family. Jay and I were in
awe. She was perfection. We would watch her
for hours, marveling at her facial expression
just sure a great mind was behind that thought-
ful look when she was probably just filling her
diaper. It didnt matter; to us she was all that and
a side of fries.
As she grew, we would receive pictures in
the mail and gush over how big she was getting
and how much she looked like my husband
just with long hair and a few front teeth missing.
Then we started getting dance pictures. There
she would be in some impossible pose that made
my back ache. Jay would say, I taught her that,
and laugh.
She likes to fish and swim and of course,
dance. But to her, its just something she does
and does really well. She takes the trophies and
fuss in stride, the same as she does classes and
her grueling schedule.
She sprained her ankle on Monday and I was
concerned. She fell during a performance but in
true Lotus style, she got up, finished and still got
five of five stars.
She worked through the ankle all week and
when I saw her in her first dance Friday, she
took my breath away. I cant describe the feeling
I get watching her. Im sure you dance moms out
there know exactly what Im talking about.
She was dancing and it was unlike anything
I had ever seen. My throat tightened and tears
welled up in my eyes. She was awesome! I had
to take a few moments to compose myself.
Im sure a trophy or two and perhaps a
plaque will come home with Prop Uncle Jay.
We have quite the collection now.
I plan to talk to Lotus today and let her know
how proud I am of her and that I saw her dance
and it moved me. Shell say thanks and then
shrug it off, say something silly and laugh.
Thats our Lotus. Shes awesome that way.
The Summer Reading Program 2013 has come to an end and I want to take this opportunity
to share some highlights of our last eight weeks here at the Delphos Public Library. First of all,
I invite all Facebook users to like our library page where you can view loads of wonderful
pictures of the children enjoying library adventures. We also welcomed Sarah Brotherwood to our
childrens staff this spring. Sarah brought a lot of enthusiasm, computer expertise and creativity
to the mix.
This year, we had 348 children and teens join: 216 kindergarten through fifth-graders, 101
preschoolers and 31 members of the Teenread book club. Of the 247 school-age members, 170
completed the program by reading at least 90 minutes a week for six weeks. Total attendance for
all 34 events was 1,880.
As part of our programs, we reveled in the antics of David Kaplan, magician and comedian; at
the Family Night, the children were able to climb on and experience several large vehicles, includ-
ing tractors, a garbage truck, a fire truck and grain wagons; and they also got to dig in the mud and
play with worms, compliments of our friends at Allen County Soil and Water Conservation. These
are just a sample of the different activities that went along with the theme Dig into Reading.
Of course, none of this would be possible without the back-up of the whole library staff and a
team of volunteers. Our 2013 volunteers were Sally Kiggins, Sue Wildermuth, Sharon and Sarah
Closson, Teresa and Kayla Pohlman, Jessica Recker, Jennifer and Jason Ditto, Holly Dellinger,
Makayla Herron, Adam Schneer, Emily Buettner, Claire Sensibaugh, Erin Pohlman, Madison
Spring and Ryan Dickman. These folks gave a valuable service to the library this summer and we
appreciate them very much.
As the Childrens Librarian, I want to compliment and thank the families for bringing the chil-
dren to our summer activities as they are a joy to spend time with and serve. Weve enjoyed their
curiosity, enthusiasm and zest for life.

I am responding the Michael Wrasmans Letter to the Editor dated July 6 regarding wind tur-
bines. Obviously, Mr. Wrasman has not done his homework regarding the problems wind turbines
create not only for the people that have to live around them but also for the animals.
First, I would like to tell Mr. Wrasman Saint Francis of Assisi is the protector of animals and
he would not approve of wind turbines. Most people love to see migrating birds, Canadian geese,
Sandhill cranes and the local birds. The wind turbines have and will continue to kill these birds as
they fly into the turbines, according to the National Wildlife Foundation.
Wind turbines are incompatible with farming. A farmer testified he will never be able to spray
his field by air again because he cant get insurance. Farming and living in a peaceful rural com-
munity are gone once turbines come. Also, there will be a loss of property value, ruined land-
scapes, noise, blade flicker, interference with the use and enjoyment of property and red flashing
lights all night that can affect mental, physical and emotional health. Some people will be forced
to move from their homes because of the bad effects turbines create. Some people are able to
relocate; many are not because of money issues, it would cost too much. These are the things
everyone should know about turbines.
Mr. Wrasman also states that wind turbines are a great resource to generate energy in remote
locations, such as the remote countryside. The area where the company wants to put these turbines
is not remote. Yes, have the wind turbines in remote areas where people dont live so people dont
have to endure the bad effects that turbines create on people.
There are many beautiful homes in this area. Most people that live in the country dont want
to look out their window 24/7 and see these wind turbines flying around. They want to see the
beautiful countryside, not a bunch of whirly birds, as you call them.
Wind turbines are not a win-win proposition for all involved. It is only a win for the large cor-
porations that get individuals to lease their land to them. These people dont have to live around
turbines. Do your own research.
On March 29, the Wisconsin Ag Connection reported that Wisconsin Sen. Frank Lasee plans to
introduce legislation that would give families that have been physically, emotionally or financially
harmed by industrial wind turbines the legal right to sue for damages.
If I understand correctly, Sen. Lasees bill will enable anyone who is harmed by industrial wind
turbines the ability to sue both the wind tower owner and the owner of the land on which the tower
is located for loss of property value, cost of moving, cost of medical expenses, pain and suffering,
attorney fees and any other loss as a result of the industrial wind turbine that is too close to their
home or property.
Sen. Lasee states, It is unconscionable for a family that has invested hundreds of thousands of
dollars in their home that they have lived in for years to be forced to move because an industrial
wind tower is built nearby or wish that they could move but just cant afford it.
It has been reported by Fox News the Cape Cod Community of Falmouth, Mass., is consider-
ing taking down their wind turbines at the communitys expense because of the adverse health
effects on those people in the area.
In closing, I would like to say wind turbines for the corporations that provide them and the sub-
sidies that they get from the government are all about big bucks for them. Forget about the people
who may live in proximity to the wind farms. Forget about the birds and animals. Forget about
how everything is linked together. Once this is done, its almost impossible to get it undone.
Mr. Wrasman, please dont ruin other peoples lives because you and your wife like to see the
whirly birds, as you call them (wind turbines), doing their thing.

From the Thrift Shop
Geee-maa-neee! As I sit
down to write this article, it
will be Christmas five months
from today. Holy smokes how
the time does fly by. Yes, I say
sheepishly, I have actually start-
ed making a list of what to get
for those on my list. It all started
when I happened to stop by one
of the craft stores two weeks
ago and they were almost done
putting out the Christmas stuff.
The shelves were stocked full,
I tell you.
On another subject, I should
tell you that a week ago, my
son-in-law had his 10th and we
hope final surgery stemming
from his horrific accident last
August. Hes doing well and
we hope that he can get back
to work in about four more
weeks. The doctors have all
been amazed by his progress,
although it will still take three to
four years for the brain to com-
pletely heal. We are blessed and
look forward to the holidays.
Dont get me wrong; I am not
rushing the holidays. I like sum-
mer too well to do that.
Speaking of summer, its the
end of it at the Thrift Shop
this weekend. After the huge
25-cent sale this week, we will
make the transititon from sum-
mer items to the fall and winter
School shopping was in full
swing with shoppers getting the
last of the summer shorts and
shirts and shoes. Dont forget,
with the big change-over hap-
pening, youll still find some
great items for school and work
the next time you shop; theyll
just be fall and winter items
instead of summer.
Theres still a nice selection
of school book bags and back-
packs. Also, if youre needing
school uniforms, theres a nice
rack with all sizes. The selec-
tion of mens ties is also huge at
this time.
Be sure to stop in during
shopping hours, which are
5-7 p.m. Thursdays; 1-4 p.m.
Fridays; and 9 a.m. to noon
I love to pass on ideas that
customers have chatted to us
about. Some of the ideas we
were told about came from
Pinterest, which is a great and
crazy site on the Internet with
all sorts of neat ideas for just
about everything you can think
of. One idea was to take three
different size wine glasses, turn
them stem side up and paint
the bowl of each one orange
like a pumpkin. Tie fall ribbons
or raffia to the stems and set a
tea light or small candle on the
flat base. Grouped together this
makes a great inexpensive, col-
orful centerpiece for your table,
and you can do it for any occa-
sion. Think of the possibilities.
Someone else said she was
collecting all sizes and shapes
of wine glasses for the tables
at her daughters wedding and
was going to tie cute little rib-
bons in the wedding colors
onto the stems of them. This
will be beautiful and elegant
and the best part inexpen-
sive. Most of the stemware in
the Housewares Department is
25 cents. Stop in and browse
and let your own unique cre-
ativity flow. Have a craft night
with friends and let the fun
A shopper shared a very
moving testament with us. She
wrote: I have been a single
mother for five years, working
full time and attended college.
I do not receive child support,
so money can be tight. I have
found, however, that when I am
in need, God finds a way to ful-
fill those needs. I recently found
a new job that required profes-
sional clothing, of which I had
none. Off I went to the Thrift
Shop where I found clothes that
more than met my expectations.
I dont find it necessary to have
a lot of anything but I did find
I needed a pair of beige shoes
to match a couple of the out-
fits I had found at the Thrift
Shop. The next Friday, I came
in and found a pair of beige
Naturalizer dress sandals that
go perfect with my outfits. They
were $3 in the Boutique. It is
called Abundance and I think of
it as Gods stock market. Seek
and ye shall find. Sometimes
what we want isnt what we
need. But God knows what we
need and The Interfaith Thrift
Shop is a place God works
through. Thank you to all of
you that volunteer your time
and effort at this wondrous
place! Through all of you many
things become possible!
Our hearts were warmed by
her words because the mission
of the Thrift Shop is to help
those in need.

An MRI found
that Bengals All-Pro
receiver A.J. Green has
a bruised knee that will
force him to miss sev-
eral days of practice.
Green hurt his left
knee near the end of
Cincinnatis first prac-
tice of training camp on
Thursday, overextend-
ing his left knee as he
tried to make a sideline
catch. Green said an MRI that found no structural damage.
At first, he feared that it was a significant injury. A trainer exam-
ined the knee and Green got up and walked off the field.
It was (frightening) for me, Green said on Friday. I felt it, but
everything felt intact. I got up and walked off, so its fine.
Coach Marvin Lewis announced Green suffered a bruise inside
the knee.
Hes getting treatment and will be sore, Lewis said. He wont
practice today, tomorrow and likely this weekend at all. Then well go
from there, when hes ready.
At this point, I dont see out in the future that being very long.
But well take our time with it and let him get right. Hell be fine,
hopefully very quickly.
Green wore a wrap on the left knee and walked stiffly and slowly
on Friday. He watched the first hour and 15 minutes of practice wear-
ing a Bengals baseball cap.
The Bengals most valuable player hasnt missed much time
because of injuries. He hyperextended his right knee while making a
touchdown catch in the end zone against Pittsburgh as a rookie and
missed one game.

ated baseballs foremost dynasty, one
transformed the role of the men in blue
and one notched the first hit in the first
professional game.
Thats the impressive legacy of
baseball pioneers Jacob Ruppert, Hank
ODay and James Deacon White, who
are finally about to receive the recogni-
tion they deserve induction into the
National Baseball Hall of Fame and
The three men represent the Class of
2013 and theyve all been dead for more
than 70 years, making Sundays festivi-
ties something out of the ordinary. For
only the second time in 42 years, base-
ball writers failed to elect anyone to the
Hall of Fame, sending a firm signal that
stars of the Steroids Era including
Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Roger
Clemens, who didnt even come close
in their first year of eligibility will be
judged in a different light.
When December rolled around and
the ballots were out for completion, it
started to dawn on us that there was a
better-than-likely chance that the writers
might not come to a 75 percent vote on
anyone this year, said Hall of Fame
president Jeff Idelson. Disappointed?
Yes because we feel there are candidates
on the ballot who certainly deserved
consideration. But surprised? No.
Approval on 75 percent of returned
ballots is needed for induction and with
pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine
and slugger Frank Thomas eligible for
the first time next year, Bonds, Sosa
and Clemens figure to be on the outside
looking in for a long while.
I believe that this past year was an
aberration the first real ballot with
some uncertainty among how the voters
feel about some of the candidates on it,
Idelson said. But looking forward, we
dont believe that this is the norm.
One thing remains constant the
awards for those who have chronicled
the game. Longtime Philadelphia Daily
News writer Paul Hagen will be honored
with the J.G. Taylor Spink Award and
the family of late Toronto Blue Jays
broadcaster Tom Cheek will be given
the Ford C. Frick Award in a ceremony
today at Doubleday Field. Dr. Frank
Jobe, whose ground-breaking surgery
on pitcher Tommy John has evolved into
a game-changing medical procedure,
also will be honored.
The Baseball Writers Association of
America last failed to elect a player in
1971, when former New York Yankees
great Yogi Berra fell just short. Back
then, the Veterans Committee selected
Dave Bancroft, Jake Beckley, Chick
Hafey, Harry Hooper, Joe Kelley, Rube
Marquard, Satchel Paige and George
This time, the 16-member Pre-
Integration Era Committee dug deep
into the archives to elect an owner, an
umpire and a player who had significant
roles in baseballs earliest decades.
Ruppert, who was born in Manhattan
in 1867, went to work for his father in
the family brewing business instead of
attending college. He also fashioned a
military career, rising to the rank of colo-
nel in the National Guard and served
four terms in Congress from 1899-1907
before becoming president of the Jacob
Ruppert Brewing Co. upon the death of
his father in 1915.
Interested in baseball since he was
a kid, Ruppert and Tillinghast Huston
purchased the Yankees prior to the 1915
season for $480,000, then proceeded to
transform what had been a perennial
also-ran in the American League into a
Miller Huggins was hired as man-
ager soon after Ruppert gained control
of the franchise and Ruppert then snared
Babe Ruth in a 1919 trade with the
Boston Red Sox, a deal that changed the
dynamics of the sport. Four years later,
Ruppert had Yankee Stadium construct-
ed and The House That Ruth Built
became baseballs mecca. Ruppert also
hired general manager Ed Barrow from
the Red Sox in 1921; together, they won
10 AL pennants and seven World Series
in 18 seasons.
ODay was born on the rural west
side of Chicago in 1859, played ball as
a kid with his older brothers and after
completing his education, apprenticed
as a steamfitter while pitching for sev-
eral local teams. He turned pro in 1884
but his arm suffered mightily in seven
years of action and he retired not long
after leading the New York Giants to the
National League pennant in 1889 and
pitching a complete game to clinch the
19th-century precursor to the modern
World Series.
During his playing days, ODay
umpired occasionally and was so profi-
cient he was hired in 1895. After work-
ing a season in the minor leagues, he
joined the National League in 1897
and went on to umpire more than 4,000
games. His greatest contribution to base-
ball was convincing everyone associated
with the game to treat the men in blue
with dignity. Despite repeated physical
and verbal assaults from players and
fans, ODay maintained his signature
code of fairness, often ignoring enor-
mous bribes to favor the home team,
and his colleagues eventually adopted
his pioneering ways.
White, a barehanded catcher, was
one of major-league baseballs earliest
stars. In fact, he was the first batter in
the first professional game on May 4,
1871, and laced a double. An outstand-
ing hitter, White, who grew up in Caton,
N.Y., near Corning, was regarded as the
best catcher in baseball before switching
to third base late in his nearly 20-year
A deeply religious man, White earned
the nickname Deacon and was dubbed
the most admirable superstar of the
1870s by Bill James in his Historical
Baseball Extract. A left-handed bat-
ter, White played for the Cleveland
Forest Citys, Chicago White Stockings,
Cincinnati Reds, Buffalo Bisons, Detroit
Wolverines and Pittsburgh Alleghenys.
He had a .312 batting average and accu-
mulated 2,067 hits, 270 doubles, 98
triples, 24 home runs and 988 RBIs
before retiring in 1890.

Three to be inducted posthumously into Baseball HOF
Browns QB Weeden planning for strong second season
Associated Press
BEREA His hair is still orangey, just a
shade off the color of the Browns helmets.
Hes still got that cannon right arm, the one
that made the New York Yankees draft him
and enabled him to throw 75 touchdown
passes at Oklahoma State.
Outwardly, Brandon Weeden looks the same.
But hes no longer a wide-eyed NFL
rookie. And as Weeden enters his second
pro season, hes got experience, an offense
catered to his strengths and a brand new
Clevelands quarterback says hes a
changed man.
I feel like a completely different play-
er, he said.
The Browns have their fingers crossed
that Weeden, who was both efficient and
erratic last season, can develop into the
long-term starter he was projected to be
when the club selected the 29-year-old with
the No. 22 overall pick in 2012. Weeden
showed signs of being that guy last year,
just not enough of them.
He passed for 3,385 yards a franchise
rookie record with 14 touchdowns but
there were too many moments when the
game seemed to be moving much faster
than Weeden, who may have been unfairly
judged as part of an elite rookie QB class
headlined by Robert Griffin III, Andrew
Luck, Russell Wilson and Ryan Tannehill.
Weeden was held to a standard he wasnt
quite ready to reach.
However, Weeden believes he grew from
last year and is eager
to show the Browns
and prove to some
skeptical Cleveland
fans that hes ready
to take a major step
Weeden seems
to have the backing
of Clevelands new
coaching staff and
an overhauled front
office that didnt
draft him. Although
first-year coach Rob
Chudzinski has not yet named Weeden his
starter, the rifle-armed QB opened train-
ing camp with a leg up on Jason Campbell
and Brian Hoyer, two experienced veterans
who give the Browns quality depth in case
Weeden falls on his face.
So far, hes standing tall. Its his starting
job to lose.
The Browns have been impressed with
the way Weeden immersed himself into
learning Chudzinskis complex offense,
which should better allow him to spread the
ball around the field to his receivers.
There was a perception last season that
Weeden, who played four seasons of minor-
league baseball before going to college,
wasnt a great student or hard worker.
But that hasnt been an issue whatsoever
as Weeden has shown a strong desire to
improve and to lead. The Browns have
spent months evaluating Weeden; to this
point, hes passed every test.
Weedens first day
of training camp didnt
start so well. He looked
tentative on some early
passes, forcing the ball
into tight spots one
of his issues last year.
But he settled in and
before long, Weeden
was threading comple-
tions all over the field,
hooking up on long
passes to wide receiv-
ers Greg Little, Davone
Bess and Josh Gordon.
Im going to go out there with con-
fidence, he added. Im not going to be
timid. Im going to go out there and play
hard and leave it on the line and take the
chances I did and always have. Im going
to throw the ball and throw the ball in tight
windows and trust my arm.
The change in Weeden has been notice-
able to his teammates.
Brandons a workhorse, running back
Trent Richardson said. I had no problem
with Brandon last year and I have no prob-
lem with him this year. All the guys are
comfortable with him. Hes trusting us; hes
trusting himself. Hes making throws. Hes
making corrections and that first year was
our first year. We put that behind us; were
not going to look back at that.
Norv Turner agrees. Clevelands new
offensive coordinator, who has a proven
track record of developing young QBs,
has been impressed by Weedens growth
and sees his potential. Turner reeled off a
list of quarterbacks Jim Everett, Gus
Frerotte, Trent Green, Brad Johnson who
blossomed under his tutelage and he feels
Weeden may one day be added to that list.
Turner said Weedens ability to make a
big leap in his second year depends on a
variety of factors.
Its totally based on No. 1, the guy, and
then the situation he was in, Turner added,
and so many people get caught up in where
a guy is. A lot of it depends on the situation
hes put in, the offensive line, the playmak-
ers around him, how good a defensive foot-
ball team you have. But I think Brandon
is fortunate; hes had the experience of
starting 15 games in this league. Thats a
plus when you start working with a player
who hasnt played a lot and then I think hes
taken to what were doing.
NOTES: WR Josh Gordon was not
limited and didnt seem to have any
issues after going down with a cramp
in Thursdays practice. WR David
Nelson was activated from the PUP list
and was limited in drills. He missed last
season with Buffalo after tearing his
anterior cruciate ligament in the Bills
opener. Nelson signed with Cleveland
as a free agent. OT Oneil Cousins
rolled his ankle and left practice early.
Chudzinski said Cousins will be evalu-
ated. The Browns will practice in
pads for the first time today. DT Phil
Taylor remained sidelined with a calf
strain but Chudzinski expects him back
in the next few days.

Big Ten vs. SEC? Answers depend on question
Associated Press
CHICAGO Nebraska
has won at least nine games in
each of the last five seasons.
Only Alabama, Boise State and
Oregon can say the same.
The Cornhuskers have won
four Associated Press national
championships. Their honor roll
includes three Heisman Trophy
winners. They play in front of
packed houses every week,
often on national television.
So coach Bo Pelini isnt too
fond of those questions about the
Big Ten versus the Southeastern
I guarantee there are a lot
of teams in the SEC that arent
Alabama that wish they were
Nebraska, that wish they were
Michigan, wish they were Ohio
State, Pelini said Thursday at
Big Ten media days, so dont
talk to me about the SEC. Talk
to me about lets compare
specific programs.
The whole SEC isnt
Alabama, isnt LSU and isnt
Georgia. Every year is different.
Like it or not, right now the
comparison point for the major
college football conferences is
the powerful SEC and the busi-
ness is quite good in the home
of Nick Saban, Les Miles and
Mark Richt.
The Crimson Tide trounced
Notre Dame 42-14 in the BCS
championship last January, earn-
ing the SECs seventh consecu-
tive national title. Newcomer
Texas A&M (Cotton), South
Carolina (Outback), Georgia
(Capital One) and Mississippi
(BBVA Compass) helped the
SEC to a 6-3 bowl record, the
highest win total for any confer-
The SEC won two of its
three bowl matchups against
the Big Ten, with the lone loss
going to Mississippi State in the
Gator Bowl against gasp
Northwestern. The improving
Wildcats, once one of the Big
Tens worst programs, beat the
Bulldogs 34-20 for their first
bowl victory since 1949 and
one of two for the conferences
seven bowl teams.
Looking back a bit further,
the strength of the SEC com-
pared to the Big Ten is a more
slight advantage. The SEC is
21-16 against the Big Ten since
2003, according to STATS.
Its crystal clear which con-
ference is the NFLs favorite.
The SEC produced an astound-
ing 63 selections in the April
draft, more than double the next
highest total of 31 for the ACC.
The Big Ten had 22 selections.
So on the eve of the 2013
season, it looks as if everyone
is looking up at the SEC. And
Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz has an
idea why.
Weve had fast guys in our
conference. Weve had a lot of
skill players get drafted through-
out the years, he said. But
if you just study recruiting, I
mean I think of the population
swing right now to California,
the South, warm-weather states.
Theres differences and
theres a lot of ways to be effec-
tive and to be successful and you
have to figure out whats best for
you at your school or conference
and then just try to maximize it.
While high school football is
strong in the South, some of the
traditional recruiting corridors
for the Big Ten arent what they
used to be.
When you go out and
recruit now, I remember north-
east Ohio, western PA, still great
football, fantastic football, but a
perfect example (is) where Im
from, said Urban Meyer, who
coached Florida to two national
titles before taking over at Ohio
State. Im from Ashtabula,
Ohio, and my high school class,
graduating class, I think had 15
people this year.
Sitting at a table in a down-
town Chicago hotel, Meyer then
began to move his hands togeth-
er in a constricting motion.
Thats alarming because its
great people, great communities
and really great athletes in that
part of the state, but its just dried
up a little bit, he added.
Meyer and the Buckeyes
could have the best chance this
year of ending the SECs run
of national championships.
Quarterback Braxton Miller
leads a strong group of return-
ing players on offense and the
defense also should be solid.
David to get fewer cracks
at Goliath
NEW YORK College
footballs Davids will get
fewer chances to knock off the
Goliaths in the coming years.
Part of the fallout of the
sweeping changes coming to
college sports will be a decrease
in so-called guarantee games in
football, where a power confer-
ence school pays hundreds of
thousands of dollars to have a
team from a lesser league play at
its stadium.
The result will be far fewer
opportunities for embarrass-
ing blowouts (Oklahoma State
84, Savannah State 0) and
startling upsets (Appalachian
State 34, Michigan 32). Pac-12
Commissioner Larry Scott said
it would be good for college
football and that he is not very
sympathetic to the potential
loss of revenue to the schools on
the receiving end of the checks.
The commissioners of the
lower-revenue conferences say
losing the pay days wont kill
their leagues and that giving
players from smaller schools a
chance to compete on the big
stage has value.
Traditionally, we play the
Big Ten a lot, Mid-American
Conference Commissioner Jon
Steinbrecher said in a phone
interview Friday. Were in the
neighborhood so that makes a
lot of sense.
MAC teams will play 13
games against Big Ten teams
this season, plus four against
the SEC and two each against
the Big 12 and Atlantic Coast
Conference and many of them
fall into the category of guaran-
tee games.
The shift to 9-game confer-
ence schedules, along with an
increased emphasis on strength
of schedule for the coming
College Football Playoff, all but
guarantee fewer opportunities
for the other five conferences
(MAC, Sun Belt, Mountain
West, American Athletic and
Conference USA) in FBS to
play the top five.
Add in the need for the
power conferences to beef up
their schedules to create made-
for-TV matchups to justify the
millions they are getting in
media rights deals, plus a pos-
sible reconfiguration of Division
I, and it leads to speculation
that the big five will be playing
exclusively among themselves
at some point.
Scott shot down that idea
and Steinbrecher doesnt sound
overly concerned about his
teams not getting more than a
few shots per season to knock
off marquee programs.

Lake La Su An Wildlife Area Ponds (Williams
County) - This is the last weekend to fish these
intensively-managed ponds. All area lakes are
open to public fishing until Monday; no more than
15 sunfish may be kept per day and no more than
five of these may be 8-plus inches. Most anglers
are having success catching the large fish but find-
ing it difficult to catch those less than eight inches.
Largemouth bass must be 18-plus inches to keep,
with a daily bag limit of five. For additional rules
and information, visit the Divisions webpage.
Bucyrus Reservoir #1 (Crawford County) -
Located in the center of the county, 2 miles north-
east of Bucyrus just off SR 98, anglers can expect
to catch largemouth bass, channel catfish, bluegill
and bullheads this time of year; fish the shoreline
cover consisting of timber, brush and weeds.
Anglers seeking largemouths should try minnows,
plastic worms, tube jigs and crankbaits. There is a
parking area right off SR 98 with excellent shore-
line fishing access. A primitive boat ramp is avail-
able off of SR 98, just east of Beechgrove Road;
there are no motor restrictions but boats must be
operated at no-wake speeds.
Mogadore Reservoir (Portage County) - Bass
anglers have been catching fish offshore around
schooling shad; lipless crankbaits have been top
producers in offshore situations, while Texas-
rigged soft plastics have been productive around
shoreline cover. Sunfish and crappie have been
biting in deeper water; drifting pin-mins tipped
with maggots around the 10-foot depth range has
been the ticket.
Tappan Lake (Harrison County) - Shallow
crankbaits continue to produce good catches of
largemouth bass; with the recent dark and windy
conditions, fish have been very shallow and close
to shore. The channel catfish action has also been
good, with shad and nightcrawlers both producing
good catches.
Wolf Run Lake (Noble County) - Anglers
like this 220-acre lake for sunfish and catfish.
Decent catches of sunfish can be reeled in around
weeds and structure, or any shoreline access along
the lake; try plastic worms or small crankbaits,
although a basic live worm under a bobber should
produce results. Channel cats can be found in pret-
ty much any cove off the main lake; live worms,
chicken livers and stink baits are all popular
choices this time of year, especially in the evening
hours through early morning to take advantage of
the cooler weather.
Pike Lake (Pike County) - This 13-acre lake
is a favorite for bluegill, bass and catfish. Bluegill
are generally found along the shoreline but may be
more active in the cooler mornings and evenings;
use wax worms on a small hook and bobber.
Largemouth bass up to 4 pounds can be caught on
a variety of artificial lures, twister tails and live
minnows; fishing around the shoreline is best early
and late in the day. Large catfish up to 25 inches
have also been seen here; night time might be the
best opportunity right now on cutbaits, nightcrawl-
ers, or chicken livers.
Cowan Lake (Clinton County) - Bluegill and
sunfish are being caught using earthworms or
wax worms, or on artificial baits colored green
or chartreuse, fished 5-6 feet deep; there are good
opportunities from a boat or along the shoreline
and pier areas, as well as in the mouth of Cowan
Creek. Channel catfish are being caught using
chicken livers, cut bait, shrimp or earthworms ff
of the bottom and about 3-6feet deep; fish from
the pier area, campground cove or creek channel.
East Fork Lake (Clermont County) - Hybrid-
striped bass can be caught this time of year troll-
ing or jigging shad-colored crankbaits or spoons
in 5- to 7-foot depths, or slow-trolling with live
gizzard shad. Shore anglers have been successful
using nightcrawlers and chicken livers; watch for
schools of small shad jumping at the surface -
hybrids may be feeding below. Best area to fish
is around the main state park public swimming
beach. REMEMBER all hybrids less than 15
inches must be immediately released into the lake
and anglers can only keep a daily limit of four;
anglers are encouraged to cut the line on deeply-
hooked hybrids to be released. Channel catfish
are being caught using crayfish, live minnows, or
earthworms off of the bottom about 5-8 feet deep;
cast into the areas under undercut banks or near
submerged trees and brush. Use live bait such as
gizzard shad or bluegill to catch flathead catfish.
Unfavorable conditions and muddy water are
still found throughout the river. More rain is
expected and water could again rise to critical
levels; anglers are encouraged to assess water lev-
els and conditions before deciding to fish. Check
for regularly-updated information.
Regulations to Remember: The daily bag
limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is 6
fish per angler; minimum size limit is 15 inches.
The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish
per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. The
trout and salmon daily bag limit is 5; minimum
size limit is 12 inches. The black bass (large-
mouth and smallmouth) daily bag limit is 5 fish
per angler; minimum size limit is 14 inches.
Western Basin: Walleye fishing was good
over the past week; the best areas were NW of
West Sister Island, around the Toledo water intake
and to a lesser extent SW of Kelleys Island on
American Eagle Shoal. Trollers have been catch-
ing fish on worm harnesses or with divers and
spoons; drifters are using worm harnesses with
bottom-bouncers or casting mayfly rigs. Yellow
perch fishing was good over the past week; the
best areas have been the Toledo water intake, A
can of the Camp Perry firing range and within 1
mile of the SW corner of Kelleys Island and the
SE corner of Kelleys Island. Perch-spreaders with
shiners fished near the bottom produce the most
fish. Smallmouth Bass fishing has been very
good around South Bass Island using soft-craws,
tube jigs and crankbaits. Largemouth bass fishing
has also been good in harbors and nearshore areas
around Catawba and Marblehead.
Central Basin: Walleye fishing has been good
at the weather buoy between Vermilion and Lorain
near the Canadian border and in 17 of water near-
shore between Huron and Vermilion. Excellent
fishing was reported in 72-74 of water NE of
Geneva and in 72-74 of water NW of Conneaut
trolling dipsy- and jet-divers and wire line with
yellow, pink, green and orange spoons. Yellow
perch fishing has been good just off the Huron
River mouth, off of the condos E of Vermilion, in
32-42 and 48 of water N of Edgewater Park and
in 50 NW of Gordon Park. Excellent fishing was
reported this past week in 42-52 NW (the Hump)
of Fairport Harbor and in 44-49 NW of Conneaut;
spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom
produce the most fish. Shore fishing has been
slow due to muddy water from the big rain storms.
Smallmouth bass fishing has been excellent in
15-25 around harbor areas in Cleveland (5-20
of water), Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula
and Conneaut; anglers are using crankbaits, spin-
ner baits, tube jigs, curly tail grubs, soft-craws
and leeches. White Bass has been fair in the
evenings off Euclid Beach, East 55th Street in
Cleveland and the long pier in Fairport Harbor;
look for fishing to pick up once the water clears up
from the rain storms. Anglers are using agitators
with jigs and small spoons. The water tempera-
ture is 75 degrees off of Toledo and 73 degrees off
of Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine
forecast. Anglers are encouraged to always
wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flota-
tion device while boating.
DOW Controlled-Deer Opportunities
Apply online for $3 per hunt. The application
period is through Wednesday.
The Division of Wildlife (DOW) conducts
annual hunts on a number of areas that are nor-
mally closed to hunting. All applicants (adults and
youth) must possess a current hunting license to
apply for controlled hunts.
Participation is determined by computer-gen-
erated random drawings. Applications may not
be faxed or e-mailed. Application fees are non-
Hunters may apply for and participate in,
either as hunter or partner, no more than a single
hunt per area, per year. Hunters who fail to adhere
to this risk disqualification and forfeiture of their
application fee.
Drawings will be held for each area and each
hunt date in early August for the early waterfowl
hunts and in September for all others. Applicants
can view the status of their application by visiting
the Wild Ohio Customer Care Center at WildOhio.
com (click on Manage Your Customer Account
and follow the prompts).
Hunters chosen to participate will be notified
by mail. In addition to instructions for obtaining
your permit, you will receive information/rules
specific for the hunt. If you are not drawn, you
will not receive a refund, nor will you be notified.
Unless otherwise noted, hunters are limited to
a single deer of either-sex. In those cases where a
hunter may take more than one deer, only one deer
may be antlered. Hunters may use either the $15
antlerless or $24 either-sex permit. Although the
$15 antlerless permits will be valid statewide only
through the Sunday following Thanksgiving Day,
they may be used during all DOW-controlled hunts
throughout the entire 2013-14 season. However,
they will only be available to purchase through
the Sunday following Thanksgiving Day. Bag
limits and tagging requirements apply during all
controlled hunts.
New for the 2013-14 season, hunters are
limited to a SEASON bag limit of NINE deer.
However, deer taken during controlled hunts do
NOT count against this limit. Hunters may take an
additional six deer during DOW-controlled hunts.
However, regardless of method of take, season,
or hunt, all hunters are limited to a single buck
per season.
Unless otherwise noted, the adult hunts listed
below are partner hunts. At least one of the hunters
must be 18 years or older. In the case of the NASA
hunts, if one of the hunters is under the age of 18,
the other hunter must be 21 years or older.
The DOW offers a number of hunts for mobili-
ty-impaired hunters. These are NOT partner hunts,
unless noted otherwise. Mobility-impaired hunters
must be accompanied by a non-hunting attendant
who must possess a current hunting license and
deer permit.
The DOW is also pleased to offer a number of
excellent youth hunting opportunities. To be eli-
gible to participate in a youth hunt, you must be 17
years or younger at the time of application. Youth
hunters must be accompanied by a non-hunting
adult 18 years or older and unless otherwise noted,
the adult must possess a current hunting license
and deer permit.
To ensure the safety of all participants, adults
may not supervise more than two hunters during
all youth hunts. Any exceptions to this are noted
under the hunt description.

SAFE sign-up continues

COLUMBUS Sign-up continues for land-
owners and operators in designated geographical
areas throughout Ohio to have the opportunity
to offer cropland for enrollment in a Continuous
Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) pheas-
ant practice entitled State Acres for Wildlife
Enhancement (SAFE), also known as CP38E-4D,
operated by the Ohio Farm Service Agency (FSA).
This is for all or portions of the following
counties: Auglaize, Champaign, Clark, Clinton,
Darke, Defiance, Fayette, Fulton (partial), Hardin,
Highland (partial), Huron, Knox, Logan, Madison,
Marion (partial), Morrow, Paulding, Pickaway,
Ross (partial), Seneca, Shelby, Union and Wyandot
Pheasant SAFE utilizes a wildlife management
practice specifically developed by conservation
organizations and agencies located within Ohio to
establish and restore habitats to support declining
populations of game bird species. The program
specifically targets declining pheasant and quail
populations in areas of greatest impact.
Offers for enrollment in Pheasant SAFE prac-
tices may be made at any of the above FSA county
offices in which the land is located. Offers are
automatically accepted provided the land and pro-
ducer meet certain eligibility requirements. Offers
under this practice are not subject to competitive
bidding; however, Ohio is limited to enrollment up
to 28,700 acres on a first-come, first-served basis.
The applicant may elect a contract period between
10-15 years. Pheasant SAFE allows for enrollment
of whole fields.
Typically, CP38E-4D practices receive a
Signing Incentive Payment equal to $100 per acre,
50% cost share assistance for eligible practice
establishment costs, a Practice Incentive Payment
equal to about 40% of eligible establishment costs
and annual rental payments. Annual rental pay-
ments are calculated using soil rental rates, which
are similar to cash rent rates.
Technical assistance will be provided by fed-
eral, state and private professionals to help par-
ticipants select proper seed species, locate practice
areas and establish and manage the practice cover.
Seed mixes for the practice cover will be specifi-
cally designed to attract and benefit pheasants and
other grassland species.

White died in 1939 in
Aurora, Ill., and six years later
Hall-of-Famer Connie Mack,
a teammate of Whites in
Buffalo, wrote in a letter that
White merited induction.
Now, Whites special day is
here and great grandson Jerry
Watkins will speak on his
behalf. Dennis McNamara, a
great grandnephew of ODay,
will deliver a speech on behalf
of the 10th umpire to be
enshrined; Anne Vernon, great
grandniece of Ruppert, will
speak on behalf of the family.
Forty of the 62 living Hall-
of-Famers are expected back
and will be part of something
special. Twelve men elected
between 1939-45 will be cel-
ebrated and returning Hall-
of-Famers will read the text
of those players plaques in
their honor. None of those 12
inductees, which include Lou
Gehrig and Rogers Hornsby,
experienced a formal induc-
tion in Cooperstown.
Hall of Fame weekend is
the bread-and-butter moment
of the year for local busi-
ness owners, who count on
a substantial influx of fans
to help make ends meet. A
record crowd of over 70,000
descended on this one-stop-
light village six years ago for
the induction ceremony hon-
oring Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony
It was crazy busy, said
Sherrie Kingsley, who with
her husband operates The Inn
at Cooperstown. It was an
overwhelming amount of peo-
ple for our village but we were
expecting it.
Neither Kingsley nor
Idelson is sure what to expect
this time around but theyre
not too concerned. The Inn
is booked as usual and Main
Street has been bustling.
(Continued from page 6)
Green said the injury on Thursday remind-
ed him of the one his rookie season.
When I felt it, it felt just like the one against Pittsburgh, he added.
Cornerback Terence Newman was covering Green on a deep pass
along the sideline that drifted out of bounds. Newman gave Green a
light push as he tried to get away from him. Green planted his left foot
awkwardly, hurting his knee.
I saw that the ball was going to sail out of bounds, so I tried to pull
up and just go behind him, Newman added on Friday. But hes the
type of receiver that tries to make every single catch possible. So I just
kept on running and I came back and saw him on the ground. I didnt
know what happened to him.
It was a scary moment, for sure. Thats one of those guys that if he
threw up on the sideline, Im nervous. Now Im seeing him grab his
knee, so Im really nervous. Sounds like hes going to be good, though,
so that was a breath of fresh air.
NASCAR buzzing
after Eldora dirt race
Associated Press
stop at Eldora Speedway this week created a lot of
buzz that still hasnt died down.
The Ohio race was the first for NASCAR on
a dirt track since Sept. 30 1970. Some drivers in
Indianapolis for this weekends Brickyard race were
talking Friday about a possible Sprint Cup series race
at the track someday.
Clint Bowyer was part of the broadcast of
Wednesday nights event on Speed TV. A part of him
wanted to be in Eldora racing.
Basically, I was stuck in a cage in there in the
Hollywood Hotel with my world racing out there and
it was really hard to sit there and watch, he said. I
thought the racing was good. Everybody was think-
ing, Man, why is the track so dry-slick? It led to
good racing.
Jeff Gordon watched every minute of it, too. Dale
Earnhardt Jr. was on his way to New York and didnt
get to see the finish.
He never got to see Austin Dillon capture the win
but a sold-out crowd at the half-mile dirt track owned
by Tony Stewart saw everything. So did 1.4 million
viewers on TV.
It was entertaining and exciting and something
that was something that I hope to see more of,
Earnhardt added.
The race was a hit for everyone.
Everywhere Ive gone this week Ive had people
that are huge NASCAR fans and people that arent
big NASCAR fans at all that watched it, Gordon
said. And they were blown away. They did not
expect it to go the way that it did.
And with the excitement that surrounded the race
brings up a question: Is there a future at Eldora with
NASCAR officials say theyre hopeful. Stewart
was on hand for the race and wouldnt mind seeing a
future at his track with the series.
The logical thing is, NASCAR will go back and
evaluate how the two days went, Stewart added after
the race. We, as a company, will do the same thing.

Tomorrows Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Sunday, July 28, 2013
Past experiences have taught
you to always build upon a firm
base, and that is exactly what youre
likely to try to do in the year ahead.
If you choose your ground well, it will
provide you with many possibilities
of success.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
-- Surprisingly, you might find
someone with whom youve rarely
seen eye-to-eye to be especially
good company. This could produce
a benchmark for a new relationship.
Make the most of it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) --
Youd be smart not to allow yourself
to be overwhelmed by details. In
fact, youll fare much better if you
make yourself look at the big picture
instead of just a few brush strokes.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) --
Dont appear too eager if someone
is trying to interest you in a business
proposition. It would weaken your
position if you look to be too easy.
Let him or her offer the opening bid.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) --
In an arrangement where your mate
opts for the lead, its OK to relegate
yourself to a supporting role. Its not
important who directs the show, as
long as it produces mutual benefits.
21) -- Do yourself a huge favor by
pushing away from your desk and
getting some exercise. A stimulating
activity, preferably outdoors, will be
just what the doctor ordered.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -- Associating with some friends
whose exuberance is infectious will
make this a fun day. Make it a point
to avoid dullards.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- Although youll have a reservoir of
strength to draw upon that will serve
you well in successfully performing
tedious endeavors, youll still need
to pace yourself if you want to run
the best race.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --
When dealing with others on a one-
on-one basis, your manner will put
them at ease. If your interlocutors
sense your sincerity and concern,
theyll feel impelled to treat you
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- As of today, you should have
some stabilizing influences starting
to manifest in areas that have been
disruptive lately. Relax and let these
calming trends bring you peace.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) --
Dont hesitate to disengage yourself
from others if you need to attend to
an important matter that requires
your immediate attention. Its OK to
make it your top priority.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) --
Because you are likely to require
solitude to perform at your best, try
to quietly slip away from others to a
Monday, July 29, 2013
Your material prospects look
to be quite encouraging in the
year ahead. Ironically, however,
endeavors you believe would yield
the largest returns may not do as
well as ones you dont think much of.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When
it comes to financial or career
matters, follow your instincts and
play your hunches. With a little
common sense thrown in, these
assets could put you in the profit
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-- If you believe a friend has some
important information, dont count
on him or her to call you about it.
He or she might not even know you
need it. Make the contact yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You
might only get partial support for
something important that you want
to change. Dont be disappointed; at
least its a starting point.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- Two persons whom youll soon
deal with are blessed with long
memories. How you treat them
wont readily be forgotten -- so make
sure you treat them right.
21) -- Although you might have to
contend with some extra jobs or
responsibilities, youll figure out how
to handle everything with grace and
aplomb. In fact, the busier you are,
the better youll perform.
place that is totally free from outside
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-- Relaxed social activities with
some old friends will prove to be
the most pleasurable part of your
day. Youre not apt to feel the same
way when with newer, more casual
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -- Learning something new
can be an enjoyable experience.
Knowledge you acquire now will be
immensely helpful in the future -- so
pay attention.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- You may expend only nominal
effort on something of personal
significance, just to get the job done.
However, when it comes to things
that benefit your loved ones, youll
knock yourself out.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --
Youll have a more enjoyable day if
you associate with companions who
share your interests. Try to avoid
persons whose political or religious
philosophies conflict with yours.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- For some reason, a few of your
customary income channels could
yield larger returns than usual.
Take as much advantage of these
conditions as you can -- they wont
last forever.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A
successful endeavor that requires
an unusual combination of sensitivity
and boldness is likely to outshine all
of your other achievements today,
especially if competition is involved.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) --
Much to your credit, you arent apt
to reveal any information about a
friend that could tarnish his or her
image. The wisdom of your decision
will pay off handsomely.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-- Group encounters could prove to
be extremely enlightening if youre a
better listener than you are a talker.
Chances are youll learn more
from other people than you ever

Echoes in Eternity
One of my favorite
movies is The Gladiator.
In one of the scenes the
Roman General Maximus
is preparing his soldiers
for battle. He says to them,
Brothers, what we do in
life, echoes in eternity.
It is a powerful state-
ment and contains great
truth. Jesus made it very
clear that what we believe
and what we do with the
time, talents and treasure
that weve been given will
determine not only where,
but also HOW we will
spend eternity. The life that
we are living is, in reality,
preparation for the eternal
life that will follow. The
choices that we make on
earth have direct conse-
quences on our lives in
eternity. We are saved by
faith in Jesus and our belief
in Him. Our salvation and
eternal life in heaven is
a gift of grace and mercy
from God. Therefore, our
eternal destination is the
consequence of what we
believe on earth.
However, our eternal
compensation is the conse-
quence of how we behave
on earth. If we have accept-
ed Jesus as Savior we are
expected to be good stew-
ards of our time, talents and
treasure. We will be reward-
ed or will lose rewards
based on our stewardship of
our life here on earth.
Jesus said in Matthew
16:27 For the Son of Man
(Jesus) is going to come
in His Fathers glory with
His angels, and then He
will reward each person
according to what he has
Jesus declares in
Revelation 22:12 Behold,
I am coming soon! My
reward is with me, and
I will give to everyone
according to what he has
Jesus illustrates the
importance of good stew-
ardship in two parables.
The first is The Parable of
the Minas found in Luke
19:11-26. Ten servants
were each given one mina
by the man of noble birth
(King) and told to put this
money to work until I come
back. When the master
(king) returned the servants
were each rewarded or lost
rewards based on what they
had earned with what the
master had given them.
In The Parable of the
Talents found in Matthew
25:14-30 the master called
his servants and entrusted
his property to them. To
one he gave five talents
of money, to another two
talents, and to another one
talent, each according to
his ability.
When the master
returned he gave the same
reward and said the same
thing to the servant who
received five talents and
earned five more as he did
to the servant who received
two talents and earned two
Well done, good and
faithful servant! You have
been faithful with a few
things; I will put you in
charge of many things.
Come and share your mas-
ters happiness!
We can see from this
parable that a servants
(Christians) reward is
based on total results in
light of potential. You see
the life that we are living
really is preparation for
where and how we will
spend eternity.
As a quarterback on
our high school football
team, I learned the value of
preparation and the impor-
tance of each player know-
ing what their assignment
was and doing their best to
carry it out on each play.
Whether we won or lost
would be based to a large
extent on how well we pre-
pared in practice as well
as how well we executed
during the game.
The great football
coach, Vince Lombardi,
said, I firmly believe
that any mans finest
hour, his greatest fulfill-
ment to all he holds dear,
is that moment when he
has to work his heart out
in a good cause and hes
exhausted on the field of
battle victorious.
As Christians we are
called and we are chosen.
The question is Will we
be a faithful servant of
Jesus Christ our King, and
will we be a good steward
of the time, the talents and
the treasure that He has
given us?
Today at our Band
of Brothers meeting at
Delphos First Assembly of
God, I will be challenging
the men to come togeth-
er as one and reminding
them Brothers, what
we do in life, echoes in
Those Were
The Days ...
with Pastor Dan Eaton
(Continued from page 1)
Grothouse explained that the cakes of ice were scored
into sectionsthe smallest being 15 pounds, medium size
was 25 pounds and the largest was 50 poundsand when
they pulled up to a house with a card in the window show-
ing the number 15, 25 or 50, they knew exactly what size to
cut the ice. Leonard carried the ice into the house and put it
into the icebox which had a tube leading from it into a tub
that would collect the melted ice water.
His boss, Charles Butch Steinle, moved the production
of ice from the west side of the building to a big insulated
room on the east side, which served as an ice house.
The huge ice cakes were made by freezing the water in
tanks and then a crane overhead would pick the tank up and
dump it out on the dock, Grothouse explained.
People who were not on the regular route would call in
and Leonard and Clarence would deliver to them through
the week.
Refrigeration was just coming in, Grothouse recalled.
We would deliver to the whole town.
The Lause brothers and Grothouse had added work during
the Allen County Fair which moved to Delphos from Lima
in 1922 and made its home as a street fair here until 1948.
Our route started out the same, Grothouse explained.
By the time we got to Main Street and drove down past
Eighth Street, we had to watch for all the livestocksheep,
hogs, steerand all the cattle tents set up in the roads.
In addition, the Steinle Brewery Company supplied
and delivered all the beer and ice for the Landeck and
Fort Jennings festivals. Grothouse said that the company
would supply a six-foot-long container that was loaded
with 16-gallon kegs of beer covered in ice with a tap. After
delivering the beer, he and Leonard would have to stay at
the festival and monitor the kegs, changing them out when
they ran dry. Even though there were extra kegs there, it
was necessary for them to drive back and forth to the brew-
ery to get more kegs and ice. When Monday rolled around,
they had to go back to the festival location and pick up the
kegs and taps.
It was a way to earn a living and I liked it while it
lasted, Grothouse detailed. We were paid in cash by the
After graduating from St. Johns in 1939, Grothouse
worked a few years delivering furniture and moving fami-
lies belongings from one home to another.
The day after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, I enlisted in
the Air Force Grothouse spoke proudly. After training in
Alaska, we formed a new bomb group and I became Crew
Chief of a B-24. We bombed the Philippines.

We usually have around
40-45 participants and their
pets, Vonderwell said. I
think our busiest year was 58
pets and owners.
The Queen and her court
judge and hand out prizes
each year. The categories
for this year are Best Dog,
Best Cat, Best Other, Best
Dressed, Best Pet Trick and
Best of Show, which is open
to everyone.
Vonderwell said his favor-
ite part of Canal Days festivi-
ties is the Pet Parade itself and
not just because he helps with
it. Some of the kids spend a
great deal of time with their
pets leading up to the parade.
Be it the time on teaching
a new trick or some of the
elaborate costumes. Any time
you mix little kids and their
pets, you are guaranteed to be
entertained, Vonderwell said
excitedly. It is always fun
for me.
Vonderwell says he still
laughs about the first year
and he reflected on a particu-
larly funny situation during
the Pet Parade. Anyone that
doesnt think their kids listen
in public, I will argue with,
Vonderwell stated with a grin.
We announced that some-
ones dog had pooped in front
of the stage and nobody had a
shovel (my fault). Every kid
heard me the first time and
the parade continued with the
kids walking around the mess
like ants in formation.

Rios Copacabana stages show for pope
Francis presided over one of the most
solemn rites of the Catholic Church on
Friday, a procession re-enacting Christs
crucifixion that received a Broadway-like
treatment befitting its improbable location,
Rios hedonistic Copacabana beach.
Copacabana, which hosts Carnival and
Rolling Stones concerts when bikini-clad
beauties arent sunbathing on its white
sands, lived up to its reputation by staging
a wildly theatrical, and very Latin telling of
the Way of the Cross, complete with huge
stage sets, complex lighting, a full orchestra
and a cast of hundreds acting out a modern
version of the biblical story.
The procession is one of the mainstay
events of World Youth Day, designed to
remind young Catholics about the root of
their faith that Christ died to forgive their
Francis tried to drive that home in
remarks to the crowd, huddled in jackets
on a chilly but finally rain-free night, tell-
ing them Jesus bears all the suffering of
the world: of the families whose children
fall prey to the false paradise of drugs, of
the hungry in a world where tons of food
are thrown out each day, of those who are
persecuted for their religion, their beliefs
or simply for the color of their skin.
Jesus is united with so many young
people who have lost faith in political
institutions, because they see in them only
selfishness and corruption, Francis said
in another reference to the violent protests
that broke out in Brazil last month against
rampant corruption and inefficiencies in the
At the start, Francis greeted some spe-
cial guests who had a place of honor on the
stage: 35 cartoneros trash recyclers
from Argentina whom he invited to partici-
pate in the Rio festival, continuing a rela-
tionship he started as archbishop of Buenos
Aires. There, the former Cardinal Jorge
Mario Bergoglio would celebrate Masses
for the cartoneros, prostitutes and others on
the margins of society.
Francis started his day Friday with
another World Youth Day standby, hearing
the confessions of five young pilgrims in a
Rio park.
It was just five minutes, it followed
the regular ritual of confession, but then
Francis stayed and talked with us, said one
of the five, Estefani Lescano, 21, a student
from La Guaira, Venezuela. It was all very
personal. He told us that young people have
the responsibility of keeping the church
alive and spreading the word of Christ.
Later, Francis met privately with a few
juvenile detainees, a priority ever since his
days as archbishop of Buenos Aires and an
expression of his belief that the church must
reach out to the most marginalized and for-
gotten of society.
Even now as pope, he calls a group of
youths in a Buenos Aires detention center
every two weeks just to keep in touch, and
one of his most memorable gestures as
pope has been his Holy Thursday Mass at a
juvenile detention center in Rome where he
washed the feet of young offenders.
On Friday, other young offenders pre-
sented Francis with a large homemade
rosary made out of Styrofoam balls, each
one bearing the names of the eight street
children gunned down by police death
squads in 1993 as they slept outside Rios
Candelaria church a notorious massacre
that underscored the unequal treatment that
outcasts often receive in Brazil. On the
cross were the words Candelaria Never
Again in Portuguese.
In a sign that they too were part of
the World Youth Day events, each of the
youngsters wore one of the official festival
Francis also had lunch with a dozen
World Youth Day volunteers from around
the globe, bringing them to tears when he
asked them a simple rhetorical question on
which to reflect: Why were they here hav-
ing lunch with the pope while others were
hungry in the slums?
The sun finally came out on Friday,
ending four days of rain that soaked pil-
grims and forced the relocation of the
festivals culminating Mass on Sunday.
Instead, the Mass and the Saturday night
vigil that precedes it will take place at
Copacabana beach rather than the mud
pit covering the original site in Guaratiba,
some 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of
central Rio.
The improved weather also provided a
brighter backdrop for his words to young
and old during his noon prayer, in which he
praised the elderly for passing on wisdom
and religious heritage.
Francis has made a point of not
just focusing on the next generation of
Catholics during World Youth Day, but on
the older generation as well. Its part of his
longstanding work caring for the elderly in
Argentina, the crucial role his own grand-
mother played in his spiritual development
and the gentle deference he shows his pre-
decessor, Benedict XVI.
Millions rally in Egypt,
responding to army call
CAIRO (AP) Called out by the army, the largest crowds in
2 1/2 years of upheaval filled Egypts streets Friday, while ousted
President Mohammed was formally placed under investigation
on a host of allegations including murder and conspiracy with the
Palestinian militant group Hamas.
Morsis supporters also showed no signs of backing down,
though they turned out in vastly smaller numbers. The demonstra-
tions in Cairo remained mostly peaceful into the night, but in the
city of Alexandria seven people were killed and over 100 were
injured, officials said.
Late Friday night in Cairo, police fired tear gas to disperse
hundreds of Morsi supporters a possible sign of a new intoler-
ance for marches that block city streets.
The announcement by prosecutors of the investigation against
Morsi, which is likely to pave the way to a formal indictment and
eventually a trial, was the first word on his legal status since he
was deposed by the military July 3. Since then, the Islamist leader
has been held incommunicado in a secret location.
Green paint splattered on DCs Lincoln Memorial
Someone splattered
green paint on the Lincoln
Memorial early Friday,
but the statue of the 16th
president was reopened by
nightfall after the paint was
washed away.
The apparent vandalism
was discovered around 1:30
a.m. Friday on the statue,
the pedestal and the floor,
U.S. Park Police said. No
words, letters or symbols
were visible in the paint.
The marble Lincoln stat-
ute had green paint on its
shin, coattail, chair and
base, as well as paint on
the floor of the memorial
Capt. Steven Booker
said the paint spill appears
intentional based off of
the splatter. Police were
reviewing security camera
footage to try to identify
possible suspects, he said.
No suspects had been
identified by Friday after-
noon. Police officials said
they would not release the
security footage because the
investigation is ongoing.
The memorial chamber
was closed all day to allow a
National Park Service crew
to finish cleaning up the
paint. Workers spent hours
using pressurized hoses and
a chemical paint remover to
try to wash away the paint.
National Park Service
spokeswoman Carol Johnson
said the memorial will be
returned to the condition it
was in before the vandalism.
She said the work was going
well by late Friday.
It is not permanent dam-
age, she said. Our historic
preservation crew knows
exactly what they need to
Ariel Castro pleads guilty
in Ohio kidnap case
CLEVELAND (AP) A man accused
of imprisoning three women in his home
and subjecting them to rapes and beatings
for a decade avoided the death penalty
Friday, pleading guilty in a deal that will
keep him in prison for life.
The captor is now the captive,
Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty
said of 53-year-old Ariel Castro.
The womens escape from Castros
home two months ago at first brought joy
to the city where they had become house-
hold names after years of searches, public-
ity and vigils, then despair at revelations of
their treatment.
Their rescue brought shocking allega-
tions that Castro fathered a child with one
of the women, induced five miscarriages in
another by starving and punching her, and
assaulted one with a vacuum cord around
her neck when she tried to escape.
Castro told the judge he was addicted to
pornography, had a sexual problem and
had been a sexual abuse victim himself
long ago.
He pleaded guilty to 937 counts in
the deal, which sends him to prison for
life without parole, plus 1,000 years.
Prosecutors agreed to take a possible death
penalty charge off the table.
Castro, wearing glasses for the first time
in court, was far more interactive than in
previous court appearances when he most-
ly kept his head down and eyes closed. He
answered the judges questions in a clear
voice, saying he understood that he would
never be released from prison and adding
that he expected he was going to get the
book thrown at me.
I knew that when I first spoke to the
FBI agent, when I first got arrested, he
Castro said he could read and under-
stand English well but had trouble with
comprehension.My addiction to pornog-
raphy and my sexual problem has really
taken a toll on my mind.
At the end of the 2 1/2-hour hearing, the
judge accepted the plea and declared Castro
guilty. Sentencing was set for Thursday.
The women said in a statement they
were relieved by the conviction.
They are satisfied by this resolution to
the case, and are looking forward to hav-
ing these legal proceedings draw to a final
close in the near future, said the statement
released on their behalf Friday.
Amanda Berry, Gina Dejesus and
Michelle Knight disappeared separately
between 2002 and 2004, when they were
14, 16 and 20 years old. Each said they
had accepted a ride from Castro, who
remained friends with the family of one of
the women and even attended vigils over
the years marking her disappearance.
He was accused of repeatedly raping,
beating and restraining the women, some-
times chaining them to a pole in a base-
ment, to a bedroom heater or inside a van.
Castro fathered a 6-year-old daughter
with Berry, now 27, authorities said. On the
day the child was born, Christmas 2006,
Castro raped one of the other women, who
had helped deliver the baby.
Berry told authorities that she, her child
and the other women never saw a doctor
during their captivity. Knight, now 32, said
her five pregnancies ended after Castro
starved and repeatedly punched her.
The women escaped Castros house
May 6 when one of them kicked out part
of a door and called to neighbors for help.
Castro was arrested within hours and has
remained behind bars.
