Resident tells council ‘Cuts, cuts and more cuts!’
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor nspencer@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Tim Honigford of East Fourth Street had five words for Delphos City Council Tuesday night: “Cuts, cuts and more cuts.” Honigford addressed council and the more than 35 people in the gallery after the second reading of two pieces of legislation to put a 1/4-percent income tax increase on the Nov. 5 General Election Ballot. The tax increase would generate approximately $400,000 per year. The city is facing lost revenues of approximately $865,000 in utilities from the closure of Reser’s Fine Foods in September, lost more than $400,000 in utility fees when Chef Solutions filed bankruptcy in 2013 and lost $60,000 in income revenue when I&K Distributions was sold to Lipari Food. The city has also seen reductions in Local Governments Funds from the state. The city received $240,000 in LGF in 2008 and in 2013, received $79,000. The elimination of the Inheritance Tax cost the city $70,000 in funds. “People here can’t afford more rate increases. You need to make substantial cuts to prove you are a lean, mean city. You need to institute immediate cuts,” Honigford said. “Why would you expect people to pay a tax increase when we’ve seen no change?” Honigford also told council they shouldn’t be taking a paycheck until the problem was solved. “You guys need to put your money back in the kitty,” he said. Councilman Kevin Osting readily agreed to not take pay. Honigford went on to say he didn’t want to see anyone lose their job but he felt it had to happen. He also talked about the way the city looks now compared to when he was younger. “Look at this town. We’ve got a bunch of slumlord properties and junk rentals no one takes care of,” he said. “I’ve lived here my whole life. Don’t you see how much this town has deteriorated? Paying more income tax is not going to change that.” Auditor Tom Jettinghoff provided facts and figures requested by council at last Tuesday’s special meetings. He had overtime hours for every department dating back to 2005. In 2012, fire, police, water and wastewater were the top four in overtime. While the fire department had the second-least amount in total paid in wages of the four at $471,010, overtime was nearly 20 percent of those wages at $93,570. The police department’s overtime was almost 10 percent of its total wages of $831,435 and water and sewer were 7 percent and 4 percent respectively, of total wages of $364,005 and $415,781. The 2011 figures were similar with the fire department overtime at 16 percent of total wages; the police department, nearly 13 percent; the water department, 7 percent; and the sewer, 3 percent. Jettinghoff also provided his best “guestimate” of the savings the water and sewer departments will see by not providing water and return services to Reser’s Fine Foods once the food processing plant is closed.

OSU, Iberdrola team up with research agreement
BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor news@delphosherald.com VAN WERT COUNTY — The link between Ohio State University and the Blue Creek Wind Farm was strengthened on Monday as OSU officials and Iberdrola Renewables agreed to team up on wind-power production research projects. A busload of Ohio State students, officials and even Brutus Buckeye ventured to Lincoln Ridge Farm northeast of Convoy for the signing of the agreement. The energy firm and the university were already partners. Since Dec. 1, 2012, OSU has agreed to purchase enough wind energy to power around 25 percent of its Columbus campus. That wind energy is generated at the Blue Creek Wind Farm. “We signed an agreement back in November where we purchased some wind energy from Blue Creek Wind Farm and Iberdrola, so now we are taking this to the next level,” announced Caroline Whitacre, OSU vice president for research. “We applaud Iberdrola Renewables for making our relationship more than just a business transaction. “In addition to the wind energy purchase, Iberdrola Renewables and Ohio State are partnering to advance wind-energy research and education. This unprecedented collaboration provides Ohio State researchers with near-real-time access to operations data so they can work with Iberdrola Renewables to address challenges and progress in windpower production.” Monday’s agreement cements the collaboration in the efforts to

An agreement was signed Monday between Ohio State University and Iberdrola Renewables setting up a research partnership on wind energy studies.

refine these systems. Iberdrola Renewables Managing Director of External Affairs Kevin Lynch noted, “The wind industry is a fast-growing business. There’s a lot that we still need to learn to make it better, so the work that we do will help the university as well.” The researchers are expected to look into areas such as blade and gear design, turbine generators, noise optimization and wind modeling, as well as policy and community concerns and wind-energy markets.

‘Strider’ endeavors to complete 4,600-mile hike
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Twenty-three-year old Luke “Strider” Jordan endeavors to become the fourth man to complete the 4,600-mile thru-hike of the North Country National Scenic Trail (NCNST). The trail, which begins in North Dakota, converges with the Miami and Erie Canal beginning in Napoleon and runs the general route of the canal towpath through many historic canal towns — Defiance, Ottoville and Delphos — all the way down to Tipp City. Jordan, whose trail name is “Strider,” hails from Minnesota and has been an avid hiker since he was young. One motivation for the personal journey was his experiences as a kid camping with his family. Over the years, the simplicity of going to their favorite campground, pitching a tent and enjoying “getting away from it

Another inspiration for his trek across country is to follow in the “footsteps” of a well-seasoned hiker named “The Nimblewill Nomad,” M. J. “Eb” Eberhart, who at 70, hiked the NCT back in 2009. While attending St. Cloud State University, Jordan volunteered time working on building portions of Superior Hiking Trail and joined the school’s cross-country and track teams. In December, Jordan graduated with a bachelor of science degree in ecology and natural resources. See STRIDER, page 10

For The Record ‘Private Benjamin’ actress Eileen Brennan dies

Former Sen. Harry Byrd Jr. of Virginia dies at 98
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Harry F. Byrd Jr., a 20th century champion of racial segregation and fiscal restraint who followed his father into the U.S. Senate but left his father’s Democratic Party, died Tuesday. He was 98. Byrd, whose genteel demeanor masked thundering political clout, was the archetypal Southern senator during his 17 years in Washington. His 1983 retirement amounted to an epilogue for the “Byrd Machine” which once dominated Virginia politics from courthouses to the statehouse. His death was first reported by The Winchester Star, where his son, Tom Byrd, is president and publisher. There was no word on the cause of death. When failing health forced his father, Harry F. Byrd Sr., to vacate his Senate seat in 1965, the namesake son easily won a special election the next year to serve out his term. Then he left the still-dominant Democratic organization, marking only the second time an independent candidate had won a U.S. Senate seat. He won re-election in 1970 and 1976, winning more votes than his Democratic and Republican opponents combined. “It’s a hard way to run, but if you can win that way it’s the best way to win,” Byrd later said. “You’re totally free of obligations to anybody. … You don’t have to follow a party line.” From the 1920s through the 1960s, almost all Virginia public policy carried the Byrd imprimatur, from its debt-averse “pay-

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eileen Brennan, who went from musical comedy on Broadway to wringing laughs out of memorable characters in such films as “Private Benjamin” and “Clue,” has died. She was 80. Brennan’s managers, Jessica Moresco and Al Onorato, said she died Sunday at home in Burbank after a battle with bladder cancer. “Our family is so grateful for the outpouring of love and respect for Eileen,” her family said in a statement. “She was funny and caring and truly one of a kind. Her strength and love will never be forgotten.” Brennan got her first big role on the New York stage in “Little Mary Sunshine,” a musical comedy that won her the 1960 Obie award for best actress. Along with her “excellent singing voice,” her performance was “radiant and comic,” said a New York Times review. But it was a series of sharp-tongued roles that won her fans on television and in movies, including gruff Army Capt. Doreen Lewis in 1980’s “Private Benjamin,” aloof Mrs. Peacock in 1985’s “Clue” and mean orphanage superintendent Miss Bannister in 1988’s “The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking.” “I love meanies, and this goes back to Capt. Lewis in ‘Private Benjamin,’” Brennan said a 1988 interview with The Associated Press. “You know why? Because they have no sense of humor. People who are mean or unkind or rigid — think about it — cannot laugh at themselves. If we can’t laugh at ourselves and the human condition, we’re going to be mean.” “Private Benjamin” brought her a supporting actress nomination for an Oscar. She also won an Emmy for repeating her “Private Benjamin” role in the television version and was nominated six other times for guest roles on such shows as “Newhart,” ”thirtysomething,” ”Taxi” and “Will & Grace.” “Our world has lost a rare human,” said “Private Benjamin” star Goldie Hawn in a statement. “Eileen was a brilliant comedian, a powerful dramatic actress and had the voice of an angel. I will miss my old friend.”

as-you-go” approach to government finance to defiance of the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down racially segregated public schools. In 1956, Byrd denounced the ruling as an “unwarranted usurpation of power” by the high court. He said he “personally hated” to see schools close, but defended Virginia’s “massive resistance” to federal desegregation orders, claiming it helped the state avert racial violence. “It is one thing to sit here in 1982 and say what was done in 1954 was a mistake,” he said in a 1982 Washington Post interview. “It may or may not have been, because you have to look at it in the context of the times. When you have to make a very dramatic change, sometimes, most times, that needs to be done maybe over a period of time and not abruptly.” Byrd, like his father, preached fiscal discipline and claimed Congress could balance the budget if it would just hold annual spending increases under 5 percent. In 1982, his final year in the Senate, Byrd said he was leaving public service with his convictions and integrity intact, but regretting that “Congress refuses to obey its own law which mandates a balanced budget.” Byrd’s break from the Democratic Party held enormous symbolic and cultural significance, an ominous sign of the party’s imminent tumble from dominance and a polar shift in Southern politics.

Officials debate best plan for economic development
BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor news@delphosherald.com VAN WERT — Everyone attending a Tuesday afternoon session on economic development had the same goal. However, there were many proposed paths to reach the goal and plenty of questions and opinions expressed along the way. The agreed goal was getting more economic development in the county. As the Van Wert County Commissioners sat down with Van Wert City Council and many other parties involved in the effort to bring jobs to the county in the commissioners’ conference room, the other underlying goal was to work together. County Commissioner Stan Owens stated flatly, “I think it is extremely imperative that the city and the county stay united in a unified effort to promote economic development for Van Wert County. We as a group of commissioners realize that we are not economic developers, but it’s our job to help promote it.” For the next 100 minutes, the group tried to come to an agreement on what that effort should be. At the center of the discussion was the agreement with Ohio State University Extension for an economic development director. Many officials, including the commissioners, have been upset that OSU terminated the county’s then director, Sarah Smith, last year without conferring with people in Van Wert before making that decision. The commissioners floated a proposal to city officials about walking away from the agreement with OSU. It was not the first time for such a suggestion. Immediately after Smith’s firing, several elected officials — both county and city — expressed anger over the move and a desire to break off the arrangement with Ohio State. At this meeting, the commissioners re-emphasized their strategy in Smith’s hiring. “We have different concerns than the city. Our small towns are horrible as far as what has happened with economic development. We made an effort to reach out to our small towns, to reach out to our neighboring counties to people who might want to invest in our county,” explained Commissioner Todd Wolfrum. “We may be ready to go in a different direction, and if that happens, the city council is a stakeholder too, and you guys are going to have to decide what direction you want to head. We’re kind of curious where you guys are at on it.” Also invited to the meeting was a group of other stakeholders in the county’s economic concerns, including a few individuals with more than a quarter-century of experience in local economic development. Jon Rhoades, president of the Community Improvement Corporation, answered a number of questions regarding the agreement with Ohio State University. Bernie Niemann and Tom Alexander disputed the need for abandoning the agreement, noting the progress that has been made since OSU Extension became involved in the 90s. Providing further clarity on the agreement with OSU Extension was president of the county’s economic development advisory board, Denise Frey. During the meeting Frey providing an explanation of the executive board which signed the agreement and the Van Wert County Economic Development Advisory Board. That board has representation from both the City of Van Wert and Van Wert County “It is an equal agreement across the board,” she explained. Representing the city on that executive board is Van Wert Mayor Don Farmer while Commissioner Thad Lichtensteiger represents the county. Frey went on to say that money for the salary and benefits of the two people in the economic development department is currently coming from the City of Van Wert (60 percent), Van Wert County (10 percent), and the OSU Extension (30 percent), yet the management of the office was equal. The city’s contribution is collected through the hotel-motel tax charged by businesses offering lodging in the city. Answering Lichtensteiger’s charge that there was no local control over the director because OSU had the final right to terminate without consultation, both

Rhoades and Frey pointed out that both the city and county had taken part in the hiring of economic development directors and that the duties and responsibilities were drawn up by the Economic Development Advisory Board Executive Committee. For their part, the commissioners continued to pursue either changing the terms of the agreement or ending the agreement entirely. Frey continued to stress that changes in the bylaws were possible, and those with suggestions should go to their executive committee representative to get the ideas flowing. “Just like today, it (the economic development plan) needs to be revisited on an ongoing basis. If something isn’t working well, it’s up to the executive committee, which includes OSU, city, and county, to make some revisions as needed. And it has been revisited over the years in regards to whether this is the right structure. One important consideration in keeping the OSU agreement is the monetary concerns. Wolfrum pointed out that with the hiring of Sarah Smith by the commissioners, the county is contributing more per year toward economic development, and that there could be more available for a department without the university’s involvement. Another point, as Rhoades brought forward, is the effort since the agreement began is much better than any previous economic development organization in the county. And the current system has many positives, including additions at Vision Industrial Park, and staff expansion at Eaton Corporation and Braun Industries.

The Herald — 5


The Amish Cook: A day in the life …
BY LOVINA EICHER 3:15 a.m. — The alarm goes off. Time to start another day. I pack my husband Joe’s lunch. We close the windows that were open during the night. It’s 50 degrees and the house feels cold. After all the hot weather last week, this is a quite a difference. It makes for nice sleeping weather. 3:45 a.m. — Joe leaves for work. I go back to bed. 4:50 a.m. — I get up again. Daughter Elizabeth is packing her lunch. 5:15 a.m. — Elizabeth leaves for work. It’s difficult to believe next week she will have worked there a year already. 5:30 a.m. — Daughter Susan and son Benjamin wake up. Susan packs her lunch while I help Benjamin with his. They like meat and cheese roll-ups instead of sandwiches for their lunch. The bread gets soggy so the roll-ups taste better. We take a burrito shell, put ranch dressing on it and then either bologna or ham. Next we put cheese on it and then roll up. Some of us will add tomatoes, green peppers or lettuce to ours. Son Kevin likes peanut butter and jelly roll-ups. 6:15 a.m. — Susan and Benjamin leave for detasseling. They wear coats this morning. Usually they wear a poncho in the mornings until the dew dries off of the corn. Verena is staying home. She hasn’t been feeling well. 7 a.m. — Time for the rest to wake up. Joseph is bright awake. He has looked forward to this day for a long time. It’s his 11th birthday and he is having some school friends over tonight. He does the morning chores and fills the horses’ tank with water. 8 a.m. — Breakfast is oatmeal and coffee soup. 9 a.m. — Joseph and I leave for town. Noon – We are back from town. After the groceries are put away we make roll-ups for our lunch. 1 p.m. — Verena is mopping the floors. She says she can’t relax to rest if she knows we have work to do. Loretta is cleaning the bathroom. I can 11 quarts of dill pickles. Earlier this week, I made 16 quarts of freezer pickles. I pack them in ice cream buckets for the freezer. They will be used for our next church services. We also canned 14 quarts of green beans this week. Next week looks like it will be tomatoes to can. 2 p.m. — Joe came home a few minutes ago. Now Susan and Benjamin are home, too. It’s easy for them to be home at this time. Now Susan and Benjamin are home, too. It’s early for them to be home at this time. 3:50 p.m. — Elizabeth is home from work. I am making meatloaf to put in the oven. Verena is making cupcakes as Joseph wants cupcakes instead of a cake. The boys are doing chores. Joe is picking cucumbers and tomatoes in the garden. 5 p.m. — Joseph’s friends come and also nephews Jacob Jr., Benjamin and Steven come with their pony and cart. 6:30 — We all eat supper, which is mashed potatoes gravy, meatloaf, green beans cucumber salad, tomatoes, cheese, ice cream, strawberries, cupcakes and cereal bars. We put 11 candles on the cupcakes for Joseph to blow out. 7:30 p.m. — Joe and all the boys go outside to play croquet while the girls and I clean away supper dishes. 8:30 p.m. — Joseph’s friends left for home. They all had a nice time. Jacob, Benjamin and Steven will stay for the night and drive their pony home tomorrow morning. For those of you that do your own canning try this pickle relish recipe PICKLE RELISH 1 gallon ground cucumbers 1 pint ground onions 1/2 cup salt 6 cups sugar 3 cups vinegar 1 cup water 3 teaspoons celery seed (optional) 3 teaspoons dry mustard (optional) 3 teaspoons turmeric Take ground cucumbers and onions and add salt and mix well. Let set 3 hours then drain well. Boil together water, vinegar and sugar. Add celery seed, dry mustard and turmeric. Pour this over drained pickles and onions. Put in pint jars and cold pack.

Cowboys’ Allen takes quiet path to Hall of Fame
By SCHUYLER DIXON Associated Press DALLAS — Larry Allen had just been drafted by the Dallas Cowboys when he found himself standing in front of a couple of hundred kids attending a football camp at Sonoma State, the alma mater that made his future Hallof-Fame career possible. His coach, Frank Scalercio, knew he was testing the best player he ever coached, coaxing the soft spoken but massive offensive lineman into a few words. “Just say no,” Allen blurted out. That was it. “I can see that nothing’s going to happen, so then I jump in and kind of close it out for him real quick,” Scalercio said. “Some of the guys still laugh about it today when they’re around. They talk about the first speech he made.” Allen is getting ready for another one. A big one. After 12 dominant seasons and a Super Bowl title with the Cowboys — and two final years closer to home with San Francisco — Allen’s Pro Football Hall-of-Fame enshrinement speech Saturday night will be on national television in front of thousands of people at Fawcett Stadium in Canton,

MLB tells union which players it plans to suspend
RONALD BLUM Associated Press NEW YORK — Major League Baseball has told the union which players it intends to suspend in its drug investigation and which ones will receive lengthier penalties for their roles in the Biogenesis case, two people familiar with the talks told The Associated Press. The sides are trying to reach as many agreements as possible that would avoid grievance hearings and talks could push back an announcement until Friday. The meeting between MLB and the union on Tuesday, first reported by the New York Daily News, signaled the final stretch of talks. MLB hopes to announce the penalties for all players involved at the same time, both people explained, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcements were authorized. Three-time MVP Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees stands to receive the longest suspension. The stiffer penalties for some players are tied to other alleged violations, including not being truthful to MLB investigators. Three 2013 All-Stars could face bans: Texas outfielder Nelson Cruz, San Diego shortstop Everth Cabrera and Detroit shortstop Jhonny Peralta. Another 2013 All-Star, Oakland pitcher Bartolo Colon, was suspended last year following a positive testosterone test, as were Toronto outfielder Melky Cabrera and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal. They won’t receive additional discipline for that violation, the two people added. Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and Seattle catcher Jesus Montero also have been linked in media reports to Biogenesis, a closed Florida anti-aging clinic that was accused by Miami New Times in January of distributing banned performing-enhancing drugs. Melky Cabrera was the 2012 All-Star game MVP while with San Francisco and Colon won the 2005 AL Cy Young Award with the Los Angeles Angels. Players who don’t reach agreements can ask the players’ association to file grievances, which would lead to hearings before arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. Discipline for first offenders under the drug agreement usually is not announced until after the penalty is upheld but there is an exception when the conduct leading to the discipline already has been made public. In addition, MLB may try to suspend Rodriguez under its collective bargaining agreement instead of its drug rules, which would lead to the suspension starting before the appeal. Milwaukee outfielder Ryan

Indians rally to beat White Sox 7-4
TOM WITHERS Associated Press CLEVELAND — Following Cleveland’s comeback, there was more emotion than usual in the Indians’ clubhouse. Vinnie Pestano is on the move — to the minors. As reporters spoke to Ryan Raburn, whose pinch-hit, 2-run single in the eighth inning rallied the Indians to their sixth straight win, 7-4 over the free-falling Chicago White Sox, Pestano, the club’s popular setup man, stood near his locker with a stunned look on his face. Several of Pestano’s teammates approached the right-hander, who stopped packing his bags to share hugs with Chris Perez, Jason Giambi and others. Asked what was going on, Pestano told reporters to speak with manager Terry Francona or general manager Chris Antonetti. Pestano will be optioned today to Triple-A Columbus, a somewhat stunning move for the Indians, who acquired left-hander Marc Rzepczynski from St. Louis before the game. Pestano has struggled this season — 1-2 with a 4.05 ERA in 34 games — and had one stint on the disabled list but had been pitching better lately. Antonetti hinted the Indians may make another move before today’s deadline, saying before the game that “there’s a lot that can happen in the next 24 hours.” In the meantime, the Indians are rolling. They moved 10 games over .500 and won their ninth straight at Progressive Field. Raburn, batting for Jason Giambi, singled off Matt Lindstrom with two outs as the Indians stormed back and won for the 11th time in 15 games. Yan Gomes added a 2-run single in the eighth as the Indians stayed within 2 1/2 games of firstplace Detroit in the AL Central. The Indians were in danger of losing to Brazilian rookie Andre Rienzo in his debut before coming back against Donnie Veal (1-2), who started the eighth. Cleveland’s comeback spoiled a solid out-

Ohio. Plenty of family and friends will be there — but not his mother, Vera Allen. The woman responsible for steering him away from gangs as a kid in the Los Angeles area died a year ago. The biggest public speaking gig of his life would have been the perfect time to have her around. “I miss her,” Allen said. “Whenever I’d get nervous or had a big game and got nervous, I’d give her a call and she’d start making me laugh.” The 6-time All-Pro has already cried once over the Hall of Fame — the day his name was announced. He’s not ashamed to say he’ll probably cry again. “She was one of the biggest reasons I’ll be up there and I know she’ll be looking down on me,” Allen said. The soft side of Allen isn’t a familiar one to former teammates and opponents. This is a man who silently bench-pressed 700 pounds — “absurd,” says former teammate Daryl Johnston — in the Cowboys’ locker room while players screamed and mobbed him. This was a player who made notorious trash-talker John Randle of Minnesota keep to himself when he faced the Cowboys, for fear of making Allen mad.

Braun was the first player to reach an agreement with MLB. The 2011 NL MVP accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension last week. Braun tested positive for elevated testosterone in October 2011 but a 50-game suspension was overturned the following February by an arbitrator who ruled Braun’s urine sample was handled improperly. Rodriguez faces the harshest penalty. The Yankees expected him to be accused of recruiting other athletes for the clinic, attempting to obstruct MLB’s investigation and not being truthful with MLB in the past when he discussed his relationship with Dr. Anthony Galea, who pleaded guilty two years ago to a federal charge of bringing unapproved drugs into the United States from Canada. “A-Rod was my teammate in New York. I’m glad he was my teammate,” retired pitcher Roger Clemens said Tuesday in Boston, where he was at Fenway Park to mark the 25th anniversary of manager Joe Morgan’s team that won the 1988 AL East title. “I did things to make him feel comfortable. I did that for all of my teammates. I think I was a pretty solid teammate.” The 7-time Cy Young Award winner was acquitted last year of federal charges he lied to Congress when he claimed he didn’t take steroids or human growth hormone.

ing by Rienzo, who started in place of Jake Peavy. Rienzo, the first Brazilian-born player to pitch in the major leagues, did not allow an earned and only five hits in seven innings. Bryan Shaw (2-2) got one out in the eighth and closer Chris Perez worked the ninth for his 15th save — and ninth straight. Adam Dunn drove in two runs for the White Sox, who dropped 24 games under .500 for the first time since Sept. 29, 1989. Trailing 4-3, the Indians scored four runs in the eighth. Veal gave up a 1-out single to Asdrubal Cabrera; one out later, Carlos Santana singled. Pinch-runner Drew Stubbs stole second before Raburn, who has been clutch all season for Francona, singled to center off Lindstrom to make it 5-4. After Lonnie Chisenhall singled, Gomes came through with his double. With Peavy in waiting mode to see if he’ll be traded, Rienzo gave the White Sox a glimpse of their future. The right-hander seemed unfazed in facing one of baseball’s hottest teams. He was only in trouble once, when the Indians scored three times in the fifth to tie it. But Rienzo quickly shook it off and was in position to get a win before the Indians came back against Chicago’s bullpen. The White Sox took a 4-3 lead in the sixth on Dayan Viciedo’s 2-out RBI single. Cleveland starter Scott Kazmir allowed four runs and nine hits in 5-plus innings. Staked to a 3-0 lead, Rienzo was hurt by two walks in the fifth, when the Indians scored three unearned runs to tie it 3-all. The White Sox gave Rienzo an early cushion, scoring two runs in the first and one in the second to take some pressure him. Dunn hit a 2-out, 3-run double in the first as Chicago ended Cleveland’s streak of scoring first at 16 games, a franchise record. In the second, Gordon Beckham ended a 0-for-20 slide with a 1-out double and scored when Josh Phegley ended a 0-for-14 slump with an RBI single.

Basinger joins Garmann/Miller
Information submitted

Colbey Basinger of Ottoville has joined Garmann/Miller & Associates as an electrical designer. Basinger graduated from the University of Dayton with a bachelor of electrical engineering in May. While attending college, he participated in an engineering co-op with Yaskawa Motoman Inc. in Miamisburg for two semesters. He is a 2008 graduate of Ottoville High School. Garmann/Miller has a staff of 34 employees, including registered architects, landscape architects, designers, professional engineers, construction administrators and administrative personnel serving public and private clients throughout Ohio. WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans’ confidence in the economy fell only slightly in July but stayed close to a 5 -year high, a sign that consumers should continue to help drive growth in the coming months. The Conference Board, a New York-based private research group, said Tuesday that its consumer confidence index dipped to 80.3 in July. That’s down from a reading of 82.1 in June, which was revised slightly higher and the best reading since January 2008. Despite the slight drop in July, confidence remains well above year-ago levels. And consumers are more optimistic about the current job market. “Overall, indications are that the economy is strengthening and may even gain some momentum in the months ahead,” said Lynn Franco, an economist for the Conference Board that oversees the consumer confidence survey. Amna Asaf, an economist at Capital Economics, blamed the July drop in confidence on rising gasoline prices. But she said the confidence index remains at a level that is consistent with stronger growth in consumer spending in the July-September quarter. Consumers’ confidence in the economy is watched closely because their spending

US consumer confidence dips from 5-year high


accounts for about 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. The index surged in June, coinciding with a stronger job market. Employers added 195,000 jobs in June and many more in April and May than initially reported. That brought the monthly job growth up to an average of 202,000 in the first six months of 2013, up from 180,000 a month in the final six months of last year. The government releases the July employment report on Friday. Economists forecast that employers added 183,000 jobs, and the unemployment rate fell to 7.5 percent from 7.6 percent in June. A recovery in housing is also boosting confidence, and a separate report Tuesday offered more encouraging news on that front. The Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index jumped 12.2 percent in May compared with a year ago. That’s the biggest annual gain since March 2006. The gains were widespread with all 20 cities reporting monthly and annual increases. “One reason why consumers are more confident than they were a year ago continues to be the comeback in housing,” said Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets.

DEAR BRUCE: My dad is getting divorced. He and this Bruce Williams wife were married only five years. They have no children together and own no property together. The property they lived on is in her name. He receives a monthly Social Security disability check. Will his ex-wife be entitled to any of that money? -- Concerned in New York DEAR CONCERNED: The only income that your father has is his monthly Social Security disability. I can’t imagine how his wife can be entitled to any of that money. The fact that they had a relatively short marriage is a contributing factor. The important thing is they have no children and don’t own any property together. The property was in her name and continues to be, and he will very likely have no claim on that, either. If you are concerned about her going after the disability check, I think you can put those concerns aside. DEAR BRUCE: I have a second mortgage in the amount of $22,000. I am paying 9 percent interest, which is $181 a month. I would to like to pay down this loan as soon as possible to get my home equity back. I am thinking of transferring the balance to a credit card with 0 percent interest for a year to save on interest. Should I do this? -- I.N., via email DEAR I.N.: I have no quarrel with you transferring your second mortgage over to a 0 percent interest card for a year, if that is possible. Paying down the loan is certainly a great idea. But people who offer you 0 percent interest are gambling that when the year is up, you will be sloppy, and all of a sudden you will be facing 25 percent interest or more, which is a killer. You didn’t indicate what your income is or what other expenses you have, but $22,000 is not an insignificant amount of money. Rather than focusing on the gross amount, what you should do is sit down and figure out how much money you can comfortably afford every month and how long it will take to reduce the $22,000 down to nothing. In addition, if you can squeeze in an extra payment from time to time, do so. If you can’t find a 0 percent interest credit card, at least look and see if you can find one with a lower interest rate. If your credit is good and you make your payments on time, you should be able to find something in the 6 percent-to-7 percent range. That’s not a huge saving, but every nickel counts. DEAR BRUCE: I have one son, two grandchildren, one daughter-in-law and a step-grandson (all one family). I have worked extremely hard to amass the monies I have right now, and I am hoping there is a way I can prevent the daughter-in-law and step-grandson from ever getting any of it. If I leave money to my son, would it automatically go to his wife? If his wife gets any, she will give it to her son (the stepgrandson, age 22), and I don’t want him to get any. Do I have to make out a trust for the grandchildren to get my money after I die (I’m 68) and leave my son out completely, that way avoiding her getting any of it? Should I specify an age for my grandchildren to get it? I know it sounds confusing, but it’s my money and I think I should be able to do what I want with it. Any suggestions? -- C.H., via email DEAR C.H.: You can do with your money pretty much what you choose. You can’t cut out a spouse, but that’s not a problem here. If you don’t want your daughter-in-law and step-grandson to ever get their hands on your money, then don’t leave it to your son. Just leave the money to your grandchildren. You can do this by way of a trust, which pays at a certain age or upon your death or on any other condition that you wish to impose. It’s your money and it’s your call, but by all means do it properly, either in a will or in a trust. Even if you do have a trust, you still want to remember your grandchildren in the will for other things that you might own, but remember, it’s your call. Also, in your will, you should make it very clear that you didn’t overlook your son, his wife or the step-grandchild and that you specifically wanted the money to go to your two grandchildren. You should also explain to your grandchildren what you are doing and why. Make it clear that you don’t want them to give any of the money to the mentioned folks after your demise.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol



Thursday, August 1, 2013 A great emphasis will be placed on your leadership qualities in the year ahead. Whereas in the past you didn’t mind taking orders, you’ll now want to be the person who issues all the directives. Make sure you’re ready for the job. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Financial conditions could be rather testy, so it behooves you to manage your resources as wisely as you can. Avoid all excessive spending and don’t borrow or lend out any money. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you fail to establish some realistic objectives for yourself, you could burn out striving for an unattainable goal. Be practical, and you’ll do fine. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Don’t do anything that could cause you problems today. You’re in a cycle where you need to pay strict attention to your inner judgment. If you stray, you’ll regret it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A domineering companion might attempt to involve you in something that you want no part of. You’ll need to muster the necessary resolve to stay out of trouble. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- To underestimate your competition would be a grievous error. You’ll have to bring your “A” game and go at it with everything you’ve got. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Review your tasks and/or assignments first thing, especially those that are distasteful to you. If your heart isn’t in your work, you could make things worse. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Hard feelings will result if you expect too much from a joint endeavor. Of course, the same might be true if your partner expects too much from you as well. All efforts must be equal. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Before you start finding fault with your mate, keep in mind not to blow things out of proportion. Once you open Pandora’s box, you might not be able to close it again. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Because you have acute critical faculties, it is sometimes easy for you to spot flaws in others. However, should you see a disturbance in someone today, you’d be wise to keep it to yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your extravagant urges could demand your attention, making it possible for you to do something financially foolish. Before spending money outlandishly, remember how hard you worked for it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The consequences of your behavior could deleteriously affect your colleagues. Make doubly certain that your motives are constructive and noble. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Under most conditions, you’re not prone to holding grudges, yet today some old complaints might rear their heads. Try to forgive and forget, and you’ll be a lot happier.

Obama challenges GOP to accept corporate tax deal
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — President Barack Obama on Tuesday offered congressional Republicans a new corporate tax cut and jobs spending package he said might “help break through some of the political logjam in Washington,” only to have GOP lawmakers immediately throw cold water on the idea. The announcement and quick rejection underscored how elusive common ground is between the Democratic White House and Republicans in Congress on fiscal issues. The divide was particularly stark on the corporate tax proposal given that both parties generally have supported overhauling the code for businesses, though the White House and Republicans have differed on specifics. Obama outlined his proposal in a speech at a massive Amazon.com plant in Chattanooga, his latest stop on a summertime campaign to refocus his agenda on the economy. He said “serious people” in both parties should accept his offer. “I’m willing to work with Republicans on reforming our corporate tax code, as long as we use the money from transitioning to a simpler tax system for a significant investment in creating middle-class jobs,” Obama said. “That’s the deal.” But the office of House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio,

“I just finished college and I knew I wanted to do something before I started my career,” he spoke decisively. The NCNST stretches from North Dakota to New York and wanders 4,600 miles through America’s rugged northern heartlands. Stretching across seven states, this longest National Scenic Trail is brought to local communities through the dedication and hard work of volunteers. Of the 4,600 miles of tread, only 1,800 miles meet required standards and have been “certified off-road,” which means less than half the trail is forevermore protected. It is more than double the length of the infamous Appalachian Trail. At this time, only three people have thruhiked the entire trail, including: Ed Talone (1994), Andrew Skurka (2004-2005) and M. J. “Eb” Eberhart (2009). Prior to leaving Lake Sakakawea State Park in central North Dakota on March 27—a little over four months ago—Jordan prepared for the arduous trek by gaining 10 pounds and since his departure, has lost 15 pounds. “I had endurance from long-distance running in college,” he detailed. “Two weeks into it [hiking the trail], I got my runner’s legs back.” During the winter months, Jordan said that one of the strangest situations he had to overcome was the fact that a portion of the actual trail ran behind a summer resort in North Dakota. “It was weird,” Jordan mused, “climbing over boat docks and hoping no one was watching me suspiciously.” Jordan has dealt with some extreme weather conditions while on foot. In Minnesota during the latter part of April, two-foot snow accumulations kept him from making the progress he anticipated. At that time, the warmer 60-degree weather plagued his progression; his snowshoes would sink in but slip sideways and his foot twisted with every step. In addition, his feet were constantly wet. “I’m one week behind because of the lateseason snowfall,” Jordan explained. “The snow just kept coming and wearing snowshoes for a week slowed me down.” Last week while blazing the trial in

Manning guilty of 20 charges, not aiding the enemy

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — In a split decision, U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was acquitted Tuesday of aiding the enemy — the most serious charge he faced — but was convicted of espionage, theft and nearly every other count for giving secrets to WikiLeaks, a verdict that could see him spend the rest of his life in prison. The judge, Army Col. Denise Lind, deliberated over three days before delivering a decision that denied the government a precedent that freedom of press advocates had warned could have broad implications for leak cases and investigative journalism about national security issues. From the courtroom to world capitals, people struggled to absorb the meaning of a ruling that cleared the soldier of a charge of aiding the enemy, which would have carried a potential life sentence, but convicted him of 20 of 22 counts that, together, could also mean life behind bars. Manning faces up to 136 years in prison if given maximum penalties in a sentencing hearing that starts today. It is expected to last most of August.

Spain investigators: Train driver was on phone

complained that Obama’s plan was simply a repackaging of proposals the White House has always supported. “It’s the opposite of a concession,” said spokesman Brendan Buck, noting that Republicans want to link a corporate tax overhaul with changes in the individual tax code. In another sign of their sour relationship, Boehner and the White House also dueled over the proposal’s rollout, with the speaker’s office saying officials there first learned about the plan from media reports. An Obama spokesman said the White House tried to tell Boehner’s staff about the plan a day in advance but the call was not returned.

MADRID (AP) — The driver was on the phone with a colleague and apparently looking at a document as his train barreled ahead at 95 mph (153 kph) — almost twice the speed limit. Suddenly, a notorious curve was upon him. He hit the brakes too late. The train, carrying 218 passengers in eight carriages, hurtled off the tracks and slammed into a concrete wall, killing 79 people. On Tuesday, investigators looking into the crash announced their preliminary findings from analysis of the train’s datarecording “black boxes,” suggesting that human error appears to be the cause of Spain’s worst railway disaster in decades. The derailment occurred near Santiago de Compostela, a city in northwestern Spain, late last Wednesday. Some 66 people injured in the crash are still hospitalized, 15 of them in critical condition. The accident cast a pall over the city, which is the last stop for the faithful who make it to the end of the El Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route that has drawn Christians since the Middle Ages. The crash occurred on the eve of annual festivities at the shrine, which subsequently were canceled. The disaster also stunned the rest of Spain, with Spanish royals and political leaders joining hundreds of people in Santiago de Compostela’s storied 12th-century cathedral Monday evening to mourn the dead. According to the investigation so far, train driver Francisco Jose Garzon Amo received a call from an official of national rail company Renfe on his work phone in the cabin, not his personal cellphone, to tell him what approach to take toward his final destination. The Renfe employee on the telephone “appears to be a controller,” a person who organizes train traffic across the rail network, said a statement from a court in Santiago de Compostela, where the investigation is based. “From the contents of the conversation and from the background noise it seems that the driver (was) consulting a plan or similar paper document.”


Michigan near White Cloud, Jordan experienced four days of hot and humid 95-degree weather and one day hit the 100 degree mark. “I had to stop and take a break every hour,” he said. While on the trail, specifically the towpath of the canal, Jordan has seen invasive species like Common buckthorn, which was brought to Minnesota from Europe in the mid-1800s as a very popular hedging material, and Garlic mustard, a herbaceous biennial cover that invades and disrupts ecological systems and suppresses native plant growth. Jordan has also crossed paths with many species of wildlife; one in particular instilled a panic in him that he never felt before. “I had a bear encounter, a 600-pound male,” he detailed his escape. “I puffed up my chest and acted as big as I could and walked away slowly.” For the most part, Jordan has been embraced by all the communities he has visited. The exception so far has been a “runin” with the law in Hickory Corners, Mich., which is a small town of 200 people near a crossroads of two highways. Everybody did not want him to be there and Jordan found the experience very disheartening. “I was hassled by the cops during a lightning-filled thunderstorm,” Jordan explained. “Even with hail and tornadic weather in the forecast, the police were relentless about me getting out of town.” The network of people helping him — offering shelter, leaving a cooler on the trail or hanging a bag of food with his name on it from a tree — are those who have posted on his blog or are kind-hearted individuals who he just happened to run into while on his journey. “Trail magic is always appreciated,” Jordan said in earnest. “In a world where people focus on, hear and see all the bad, it’s the kindness and giving I have experienced on my journey that has restored my faith in humanity.” Jordan is anticipating reaching the end of the trail at Crown Point State Historic Site in New York at the Vermont state line sometime in early October.

In this way, both Iberdrola and Ohio State can work together on reports, publications, inventions and patents which could come from these projects and have their rights protected. Both sides were all smiles after the paperwork was signed. “It’s a great day for Ohio State and a great day for wind power in this state,” stated OSU Interim President Joseph A. Alutto.

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) is a nonsurgical procedure used to treat the stenotic (narrowed) coronary arteries of the heart found with coronary heart disease. These stenotic segments are due to the buildup of cholesterol-laden plaques that form due to atherosclerosis. PCI is usually performed by an interventional cardiologist. A stent is a small, metal mesh tube that acts as a scaffold to provide support inside the coronary artery. A catheter on a guide wire inserts the stent into the narrowed artery. Once in place, the stent expands to the full size of the artery and holds it open permanently.

“Working with a research university as reputable and cutting edge as Ohio State is a fantastic opportunity for us and the state of Ohio,” Lynch stated. “We are delivering clean, renewable power, and partnering with a world-class institution to further wind-energy technology and education.” The tone was set for the signing ceremony early on as the bus doors opened and Brutus Buckeye rushed out, followed by the OSU State Tour Team, a group of red-shirted students.

got a first look at the wind farm, a few marveling at the site of several turbines overlooking Lincoln Ridge on a sunny Monday morning. The bus trip was making its first stop, moving on to visit Cooper Farms in Van Wert next. The immediate effect of the new agreement is the creation of a committee with representatives from both Ohio State and Iberdrola Renewables. The committee will work to evaluate, approve and facilitate research projects, and to determine the responsibilities of all par-

“This is difficult but I gave it my best shot,” Jettinghoff said. His worksheet showed in 2012, Reser’s used 168,459 gallons of water per day, 18 percent of the total daily production. Without the cost of producing Reser’s water, there was a variable cost savings of $48,776 for the year. The wastewater variable cost savings were estimated at $53,514 a year, with Reser’s contribution nine percent of total production. Safety Service Director Greg Berquist handed out a memorandum including a list of options and their savings. On the list were: reductions in staff in the police, fire and recreation departments, including laying off three firefighters ($131,000), four police officers ($155,000) and one recreation department staff member ($21,000) with savings of $307,000 per year; a fur-

lough day per employee each week in all departments with an estimated $480,000 savings (but does not provide enough man hours to keep the water and police department operational); a furlough day for each employee per pay period (15 days) with savings of $240,000 and various scenarios with employees paying increased percentages of health care costs; layoffs of non-unionized employees, including two from the wastewater treatment plant ($53,000), one from the water treatment plant ($26,000) and one from maintenance ($26,000), with various options for employees covering a higher percentage of health care costs; and money that can be saved by the city by changing the ordinance that allows income reciprocity credit with other cities with $270,000 in gains per year. Council will meet at 7 p.m. Monday in council chambers and hear the third reading of the proposed increase to income tax.

Identical hearts. Identical life-saving surgeries.
Francis Early almost lost his twin brother, Fred, to a massive heart attack. But Fred’s heart attack saved Francis’ life, thanks to the cardiologists at Lima Memorial. Fred had been airlifted to Lima Memorial for emergency heart surgery. As he recovered, he told his doctor: “I have an identical twin!” Francis Early rushed to Lima Memorial for an urgent heart exam. He had an identical heart blockage at the identical site – and underwent the identical life-saving surgery. Today the Early twins will tell you the same story: you’ll find the best heart and vascular care at Lima Memorial.

Answers to Monday’s questions: The xylophone represents the rattling bones and skeletons in orchestral performances of Danse Macabre, by French composer Camille Saint-Saën. It takes a papaya seed less than 18 months to grow into a 20-foot-tall, fruit-bearing tree. Today’s questions: Anatomically speaking, where are your PIP and DIP joints? What popular Hollywood leading man had an uncredited role as a deckhand aboard the sinking Titanic in the 1958 film A Night to Remember? Answers in Thursday’s Herald. Today’s joke: Joe, a college student, was taking a course in ornithology, the study of birds. The night before the biggest test of the semester, Joe spent all night studying. He had the textbook nearly memorized. He knew his class notes backward and forward. Joe was ready. The morning of the test, Joe entered the auditorium and took a seat in the front row. On the table in the front was a row of 10 stuffed birds. Each bird had a sack covering its body, and only the legs were showing. When class started, the professor announced that the students were to identify each bird by looking at its legs and give its common name, species, habitat, mating habits, etc. Joe looked at each of the birds’ legs. They all looked the same to him. He started to get angry. He had stayed up all night studying for this test and now he had to identify birds by their LEGS? The more he thought about the situation, the angrier he got. Finally he reached his boiling point. He stood up, marched up to the professor’s desk, crumpled up his exam paper and threw it on the desk. “What a ridiculous test!” he told the prof. “How could anyone tell the difference between these birds by looking at their legs? This exam is the biggest rip-off I’ve ever seen!” With that, Joe turned and stormed toward the exit. The professor was a bit shocked, and it took him a moment to regain his composure. Then, just as Joe was about to walk out the door, the prof shouted out, “Wait a minute, young man, what’s your name?” Joe turned around, pulled up his pant legs and hollered, “You tell me, prof! You tell me!”
