Income tax collection relies on taxpayer cooperation
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor nspencer@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Everyone pays their taxes, right? Perhaps not. With the city facing more than a $1 million shortfall by the end of 2014, the City of Delphos will ask taxpayers to approve a half-percent income tax increase to begin Jan. 1, 2014. Income Tax Administrator Doris Bockey is still looking for taxes that were due by April 15. “We’re about $40-50,000 down from where we estimated we should be,” Bockey said Tuesday. “I know some of that is from lost jobs and the economy but not all of it.” Just to be sure, Bockey sends out letters to residents and corporations who paid taxes last year with a friendly reminder that if they did have income in 2013, the city is due its share. She also watches for new residents moving in. “I send out a questionnaire so they can determine if the city income tax ordinance applies to them and if so, they owe us money and need to pay it,” Bockey said. Bockey said she has sent out between 100-200 of those letters last year. If she receives no response, a second weightier letter is sent. Bockey said sometimes a letter or two are not enough. Only about one-third of those she sends letters to respond. For those who don’t, the city can choose to enlist the assistance of the state and even the federal government by subpoenaing tax records up to three years prior. “The state can give us a list for state returns with a Delphos zip code but it does cost us money. I think the last time we requested the list, it was $180,” she said. “We go through the list and make sure everyone who filed a state tax return also filed with us or has the taxes taken out of the paycheck.” Subpoenaing federal tax records also comes with a price tag. At this point, Safety Service Director Greg Berquist would step in. “If we feel it is warranted, we can start an audit,” Berquist said. “The process is very time-consuming and costly but then we can dig deeper.” Ultimately, Berquist said the goal is for residents and businesses to abide by the ordinance and pay taxes when they are due. “The goal of the income tax is to generate funds for the city,” he said. “That doesn’t work if it costs us money to collect it.” The median income in Delphos is between $3035,000. The average income tax due is approximately $425. If a resident works within the city limits, their employer should deduct the appropriate tax. The city also has an income reciprocity credit with other cities. If a Delphos resident works in another city, they are given a .75-percent credit for taxes paid in that city. If a resident is unsure if they owe taxes to the city, Bockey is available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The roar of the cannon will return to Fort Jennings this weekend during Fort Fest. The 1812 Encampment enjoyed by many during the village’s bicentennial in 2012 will again transform Fort Jennings Park into an 1812 military camp. (Herald file photo)

Fort Fest transports village back to 1812
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com FORT JENNINGS—The village of Fort Jennings is gearing up for its community park celebration, Fort Fest, which will run Friday through Sunday and will offer many truly unique historical experiences for all that attend. Some fascinating events are scheduled for Fort Fest and include: Camp of 1812/Senior Day; “Eyes of Freedom” Display; Heritage Ball; Tomahawk Throwing Contest; Fort Building Contest; and Horse-Drawn History Tours. Dr. Wes Klir, who has been a huge part of planning and managing the festival activities in Memorial Hall, described the activities available for adults and children taking place all weekend. “This festival is so different in so many ways,” Klir detailed. “People can immerse themselves into this history.” The festival kicks off at 9 a.m. Friday withCamp 1812/Senior Day, an interactive camp for grade school children that takes place at the park. Until 3 p.m., there will be crafts and skills used by militia showcased.

“It’s also Senior Day and it will be a great opportunity for grandchildren and grandparents to interact together,” Klir detailed. At noon, the MIA/POW Wall and “Eyes of Freedom” Display will arrive via motorcade and helicopter procession into the park and to the fire station. “Six local veterans on an Honor Flight will arrive with the memorial displays,” Klir explained. Also on Friday, the Huey 369 Flights will begin at noon at the park and run until 5 p.m. Saturday hours are to be determined and Sunday hours are from 10:30-6 p.m. The Heritage Ball, which is held at Memorial Hall, is a 1812 re-enactment dinner with classic American cuisine where there will be an 1812 toast and entertainment. All re-enactment actors are invited and eat dinner for free and the general public is welcome. Since it was so popular and sold out last year with only one seating, this year there are two seatings from 6-8:30 p.m. — one on Friday and one on Saturday. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children under 17 years of age and help offset the costs of the free meals for the actors. See FORT, page 10

Affordable Care Act

Study: Half who now buy own health plan to get assistance
The Associated Press WASHINGTON — About half the people who now buy their own health insurance— and potentially would face higher premiums next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law— would qualify for federal tax credits to offset rate shock, according to a new private study. Many other people, however, earn too much money to be eligible for help, and could end up paying more. The estimate, being released today by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation, tries to answer one of the biggest remaining questions about the impact of Obama’s law on American families: Will consumers wince — or even balk — when they see the premiums for the new plans? The study found that 48 percent of families currently buying their own coverage would be eligible for tax credits next year, averaging $5,548 per family, or 66 percent of the average cost of a benchmark “silver” policy offered through new state insurance markets.

Putnam County Senior Expo set for Friday
Information Submitted

COLUMBUS—On Monday, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine rejected the petition for the proposed End Ohio Cannabis Prohibition Act of 2012 because the summary of the petition was not “fair and truthful.” On August 2, the Ohio Attorney General’s Office received a written petition from Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis to amend the Ohio Constitution by adding the End Ohio Cannabis Prohibition Act of 2012. Attorney General DeWine’s letter rejected the summary because it was unable to be certified as “fair and truthful” because it omits references to amendment language which repudiates federal cannabis prohibitions, as well as references to amendment language that persons cannot be considered to be under the influence of cannabis “solely because of the presence of metabolites or components of cannabis in his or her body.” The summary states that educational courses may be held by licensed commercial production companies or educational institutions to teach people, among other things, about “medical harms or benefits from the personal use of cannabis products.” However, no such language referencing medical harms or benefits exists in the amendment. The summary also omits references to amendment language that confer new duties and responsibilities on the Ohio Department of Agriculture and the Ohio Department of Commerce. “For these reasons, I am unable to certify the summary as a fair and truthful statement of the proposed amendment,” DeWine stated in his letter rejecting the petition. “However, I must caution that this letter is not intended to represent an exhaustive list of all defects in the submitted summary.”

The session is scheduled to meet directly after the meeting of the Van Wert County Economic Development Group meeting that morning. This workshop can assist a company in addressing its hiring needs. Among other things, one major benefit will be learning how to access over 2.5 million resumes on OhioMeansJobs.com and how to post job openings on the website. OhioMeansJobs. com is a place for employers to look for Ohio-based talent, to post job opportunities, and to integrate employment events into a single, cost free point of contact. To sign up for a session contact Darlene Myers at myers.688@osu.edu or phone (419) 238-2999.

Amish Cook busy canning tomatoes, pickles
BY LOVINA EICHER It is Thursday morning. Time is going by fast but I need to take time to get this column in today’s mail. My plans are to go help sister Emma today. She is having a garage sale this weekend. With both her daughters de-tasseling corn, I offered to help her organize everything. My husband Joe and daughter Elizabeth have both left for the RV factories where they work. Daughter Susan and son Benjamin left around 6 a.m. to go de-tasseling. Daughters Verena and Loretta are staying with a 93-year-old lady from 3 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., so I am leaving them sleep a little longer this morning. I do hope we can be leaving for Emma’s house by 8:15 to 8:30 a.m. The lady lives around three miles from here so her son brings the girls home when he gets off work. This will only be until she is recovered enough to stay alone. This week we have been kept busy canning tomatoes and pickles. I made 22 quarts of freezer pickles to put into the freezer for Emma and Jacob’s upcoming church services next month. I also canned 25 quarts of dill pickles. Yesterday afternoon while we were in the middle of canning pickles, Uncle Joe and Betty and two of their granddaughters came for a short visit. Daughter Lovina, 9, seems to be recovering well from the surgery she had last week. She had her tonsils and adenoids removed. She can’t do any strenuous exercise for two weeks. She says the hardest thing is not being able to ride the pony. She loves to read and write so that helps keep her occupied. She enjoyed getting the extra ice cream and popsicles. The children have only three and a half weeks until school starts. This summer flew by so fast. My husband Joe and the boys dug up all our potatoes. This year we laid the potato seeds on top of the soil then covered thickly with straw. We had a nice crop of potatoes and that method seemed to work well. It also kept the weeds from taking over. We had some nice-sized potatoes. There were a lot of potatoes on one plant. With the garden starting to empty out here and there it makes you think of autumn. We were blessed with a lot of nice rains to help the garden grow this summer. We have been having cool evenings and mornings which make it feel like fall weather. With it being blueberry season here is a good recipe! Blueberry Lemon Bread Ingredients 1/2 cup butter 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 eggs 2 cups flour 1/2 cup milk 1 1/2 cups blueberries 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/3 cup white sugar Instructions Beat together butter and sugar. Then add baking powder and salt. Add eggs one at a time and stir well. Add flour and milk alternately. Stir in blueberries gently and pour batter into a 9 X 9 pan or loaf pan and bake for about 1 hour. When the bread has finished baking prick the top with a fork. Brush lemon juice and sugar mixture on top.

Blue Jays young, green on the ‘greens’
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — John Klausing has had some veteran teams over the years as the head coach of the St. John’s boys golf unit. Not so in 2013. With the loss of six regulars from last fall, including Division III State qualifier Nick Kayser and others that are playing at the smallcollege level, this year’s flock of Blue Jays will have only one letterwinner back for the fifthyear head man. With so little experience back — lone senior and third-year varsity player T.J. Hoersten — the ‘green’ Jays will have to grow up in a hurry on the greens of the Delphos Country Club and other locales throughout the region. “We have a young group this year but they are showing improvement and are giving great effort every week to improve,” Klausing noted.

The St. John’s golfers for 2013 are, front from left, Stephen Leathers, Ryan Dickman and Austin Lucas; and standing, head coach John Klausing, Brandon Slate, T.J. Hoersten and J.R. Keirns. (Delphos Herald/Jim Metcalfe photo).

“That is all you can ask of a young team.” Having to replace the likes of Kayser (4-year varsity player), Sean Flanagan (3 years), Cole Fischbach (3 years), Craig Klausing (3 years), Aaron Miller (3-years) and Drew Wagner (2 years) — key cogs for District-qualifying units in 2010 and 2011 and a runner-up finisher in the Midwest Athletic Conference in 2011 — Klausing has already eyed improvement during the early part of the newest campaign. Lone junior J.R. Keirns, lone sophomore Brandon Slate and freshmen Stephen Leathers, Ryan Dickman and Austin Lucas give Klausing hope for not only this year but down the road. “We will still be seeking to finish in the top four in the MAC,” he added.

Lady Lancers seek continued links improvement

McAllister bounces back, leads Indians over Twins
By ADAM CZECH Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS — Zach McAllister won for the first time in almost three months, Ryan Raburn homered and the Cleveland Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 5-2 on Tuesday night. Cleveland had lost seven of its last eight and posted a 6.00 ERA during that stretch. Coming off his worst start of the season on Thursday against Detroit, McAllister (5-7) bounced back and held Minnesota to one earned run and four hits in six innings. He struck out seven in his first win since May 23. Josh Willingham homered for the Twins in the second inning, Minnesota’s 23rd straight run from a home run. The Indians led 3-1 in the sixth when Samuel Deduno (7-6) hit Carlos Santana in the toe with a pitch. Plate umpire Adam Hamari initially ruled that Deduno’s pitch didn’t hit him but awarded Santana first base after conferring with the rest of his crew and changing the call. Rayburn then lined a home run into the leftcenter field bleachers.

RURAL MIDDLE POINT — Brad Doidge has been coaching golf for 23 years, 17 of them at Lincolnview in various ways. He hopes to build on the Lady Lancer legacy in 2013 as the crew in 2012 advanced to the Division II level and finished sixth after a second-place ending at the sectionals. So far so good for his relatively youthful group. “We have two players back from last year: Macey Ashbaugh, a fourth-year senior, and Mikenna Klinger, who started last fall as a freshman,” Doidge began. “Those two give this young roster the experience. Mikenna played well in the Lima Junior Golf Association during the summer and Macey brings the senior leadership.” He did lose two very experienced players from last fall’s group in All-District second-teamer Kaitlyn Brant and honorable-mention all-District Amanda Kocab, both who earned four varsity letters. However, as always, young players — in this case, freshman Macala Ashbaugh, freshman Makenzie Kraft and classmate Kaylee Hobbs — have to step into the breach on the run. “Those three are learning the game as fast as they can and learning on the fly as the matches have started,” Doidge added. After competing in a pair of invitationals and doing fairly well as a team, the Lady Lancers host a tri-match 10 a.m. today at Hickory Sticks. Minnesota cut it to 5-2 in the sixth when Joe Mauer scored from first base on a single by Justin Morneau that skipped under the glove of centerfielder Michael Bourn for an error and rolled all the way to the warning track. It was the first time the Twins scored without a home run since Aug. 7. But McAllister fanned Willingham and Oswaldo Arcia to end the inning and strand Mauer at third, getting several pats on the back from teammates as he walked back to the dugout. McAllister’s strong start was much needed for an Indians team that entered Tuesday in third place instead of second in the AL Central for the first time since June 17. After McAllister exited, Cody Allen and Joe Smith each pitched a perfect inning. Chris Perez allowed a 2-out double to Arcia in the ninth but retired Trevor Plouffe to end the game and record his 19th save in 22 chances. Bourn, Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley added RBIs for Cleveland. The Twins went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position and are now 3-for-48 in those situations over their last six games.

Leading the Rams (0-3) were Blake Gratz with a 44, Woody Prater with a 47, Chance Watkins’ 58 and Corey Wolford 69. Spencerville is at Shawnee 10 a.m. Friday.

Federal government sues to block airline merger
DALLAS (AP) — American Airlines and US Airways expected to spend this week cruising toward completion of a merger that would create the world’s biggest airline. Instead, they were stunned Tuesday when the federal government and six states sued to block the deal, saying it would hurt competition and cost consumers hundreds of millions of dollars a year in higher fares and extra fees. Antitrust regulators had done little to interfere with other big airline mergers in the past five years, including DeltaNorthwest and United-Continental. So, they were not expected to stand in the way of American and US Airways. But this latest deal would leave four airlines controlling more than 80 percent of the U.S. air-travel market. “By further reducing the number of legacy airlines and aligning the economic incentives of those that remain, the merger of US Airways and American would make it easier for the remaining airlines to cooperate, rather than compete, on price and service,” the lawsuit said. The Justice Department turned the words of US Airways leaders against them. The 56-page complaint filed in federal district court in Washington, D.C., was peppered with quotes from internal emails, investor presentations and public comments in which top executives noted that previous mergers had helped lead to higher fares and higher fees to check a bag or change a ticket. Shares of both companies plunged, and executives vowed to challenge the lawsuit. “We will fight them,” declared US Airways CEO Doug Parker, who would run the combined company.

Icahn sets sights on Apple, Eurozone turning a corner as recession set to end talks to CEO Tim Cook LONDON (AP) — The sis forced debt-laden governSAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Activist investor Carl Icahn thinks Apple should be doing more to revive its stock price, and wants to help CEO Tim Cook with the resuscitation. Icahn, an outspoken billionaire renowned for pouncing on out-of-favor stocks, signaled he has Apple Inc. in his sights in two short messages posted Tuesday on his Twitter account. Until now, he had been deploying Twitter as a weapon in his attack on Dell Inc.’s proposed sale to a group led by its CEO, Michael Dell. The Twitter posts announced that Icahn had acquired a large but unspecified stake in Apple and that he had just had a “nice conversation” with Cook about his belief that the maker of the iPhone and iPad should be using even more of its $147 billion in cash to buy back its own stock as soon as possible. Apple spokesman Steve Dowling described Icahn’s discussion with Cook as positive, but declined to elaborate. “We appreciate the interest and investment of all our shareholders,” Dowling said. Icahn, 77, probably has already won some fans among Apple shareholders. After he tweeted, Apple’s market value rose by about $13 billion. Apple already has been trying to lift its stock price under a program it adopted earlier this year under pressure from another activist shareholder, hedge fund manager David Einhorn. In April, Apple pledged to spend $60 billion buying back its stock through the end of 2015 as a way to return some of its cash to shareholders. About $18 billion of that commitment already had been spent through June 29, according to the company’s regulatory filings. Apple also plans to dole out more than $10 billion in shareholder dividends each year. Icahn thinks Apple should be pouring even more money into its stock because he believes the shares are worth more than most investors currently believe, according to his tweet. Despite a recent upturn that has re-established Apple as the world’s most valuable company, its stock remains 30 percent below its peak of $705.07 reached nearly 11 months ago. recession that’s gripped the eurozone since late 2011 is likely over. Today, official figures are expected to show that economic growth among the 17 countries that use the euro inched up 0.2 percent in the April-June quarter compared with the previous quarter. The increase is slight. But it would end six straight quarters of a debilitating recession — the longest to afflict the singlecurrency bloc since its creation in 1999. And it would represent an encouraging sign for other economies, including the United States, the world’s largest, because the eurozone is the world’s biggest trading bloc. The eurozone’s recession held back growth in the United States, Japan and elsewhere as European consumers and businesses spent less on goods from those nations. “Concerns about the eurozone were causing a lot of companies to put investment on hold,” said David Owen, chief European economist at Jefferies International. The eurozone’s recession was a byproduct of the debt crisis that engulfed the currency union in 2010. The cri-

Paul Denis, a Washington antitrust lawyer hired by US Airways, said Tuesday would be the Justice Department’s “best day” in the matter. “They got to hold their press conference. Now they’ve got to try their case in court,” he said. Tom Horton, CEO of American Airlines parent AMR Corp., said the companies had spent months trying to convince the Justice Department that the merger would help customers and boost competition by creating a tough new rival to larger airlines United and Delta. AMR has been operating under bankruptcy protection since November 2011. It has cut labor costs, renegotiated aircraft and other leases and earned $220 million profit in the second quarter — its first profit in the April-to-June period in six years. It is forging ahead with an order for hundreds of new airplanes.

Shrunken government spending and higher taxes devastated living standards in much of the eurozone, slowed economies and drove the bloc’s unemployment rate to a record 12.1 percent. The austerity programs embraced by the most troubled eurozone countries contrast with more expansionary efforts in the United States. The Federal Reserve has also been more active than the European Central Bank in helping the economy. It drove borrowing rates to record lows once the financial crisis erupted in 2008.

DEAR BRUCE: My mother-in-law is in her 80s. She has Bruce Williams a will that was redone by an attorney six years ago after my father-in-law died. Her assets are to be divided equally among her four children upon her death. Since the will was drawn up, her oldest (unmarried) son passed away, so his share would presumably go to his daughter. A few days ago, my mother-inlaw informed us that she gave one of her other sons a tremendous amount of money ($40,000) to help him make a larger down payment on a house. She said, “You can deduct it from his inheritance after I’m gone.” She is on a fixed income and moderately comfortable, but even if all goes well during her last years, she will be lucky if she has $160,000 to divide four ways in the end. She despises attorneys and is not likely to revise her will again. Is there any other way that her intent could be noted other than with a revision to the will? Could she write a letter to that effect and have the letter notarized? My husband is the designated executor to the will, if that makes any difference. We have always been on good terms with my husband’s siblings. I think she truly believes that we’ll all just work it out, but I fear this is the sort of thing that might tear the family apart if not handled correctly. -- D.Q., in Georgia DEAR D.Q.: Your mother-in-law could not be more mistaken in her belief that you’ll just work it out. The will should specifically say that so-and-so is not acknowledged as a primary recipient because of monies that had been advanced to him and other issues. Then, she can ask that the primary monies be divided three ways until such time as each person has received whatever amount she had advanced to the one sibling, and then the remainder could be split four ways. The fact that she despises attorneys is absolute nonsense. If she wants to cause all kinds of problems with her family, just let things go the way they are. But if she has any love for her children, she will do as I have described with the services of a proper attorney. Your fear that this could tear the family apart is completely valid. I hope she will listen to you and to me. DEAR BRUCE: I’m 73 years old. I own a duplex and I’m debating whether I should sell it or not. I need the income to supplement my Social Security. I can’t live off just that income. The interest rates are so low right now. Another problem is my only daughter moved 11 hours away from me. I need to scale back and am thinking that maybe I should live closer to her. I have no family here. I would appreciate your feedback. -- Bonnie, via email DEAR BONNIE: It’s your call. If you want to stay where you are, that’s your business. If you want to live closer to your daughter, I can understand that, too, but you should discuss it with her before you make any arrangements to do so. By selling your duplex you will free up some money, which should take the pressure off. Depending on the amount, the relief may be for a short period of time, but that is another story. The first thing to do is discuss it with your daughter. Determine if she would like for you to live closer, and decide if you want to. If you make the judgment to live closer to her and put your duplex up for sale, don’t move until it is sold. It’s much easier to sell a house that is occupied than one that is vacant. DEAR BRUCE: My daughter has been renting a house for the past two years. She just found out that the house is going into foreclosure. Is there any way to find out what the time frame is going to be, so she knows when she needs to start looking for a new place to live? She has been paying rent on time and faithfully every month, but apparently the landlord has not been using that money to pay the mortgage. She would like to stay there, but is not sure what her options are. -- Nervous Mom, via email DEAR NERVOUS MOM: The first thing I would do is contact the company that is holding the mortgage. She can learn this at the county seat where the mortgage has been recorded. Ask the mortgage company what its plans are in the foreclosure and to whom the rent should be paid. In the event that the company doesn’t respond, she should deposit the money in a separate account every month and immediately start looking for a new place to live. The mortgage company may very well be amenable to her staying there or it may suddenly decide it wants her out. If she finds a satisfactory new place, she should move. If she has paid rent in advance (first and last), then I could write to the mortgage company and say she is withholding the last month’s rent, which has been paid in advance to the current landlord. That would give you some expectation of not losing that money. I am not at all certain the company will stand still for it, but what do you have to lose?

Air Force nuclear unit fails key security test Potential Lilly lung
WASHINGTON (AP) — An Air Force unit that operates one-third of the nation’s landbased nuclear missiles has failed a safety and security inspection, marking the second major setback this year for a force charged with the military’s most sensitive mission, the general in charge of the nuclear air force told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Lt. Gen. James M. Kowalski, commander of Air Force Global Strike Command, said a team of “relatively low-ranking” airmen failed one exercise as part of a broader inspection, which began last week and ended Tuesday. He said that for security reasons he could not be specific about the team or the exercise. “This unit fumbled on this exercise,” Kowalski said by telephone from his headquarters at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., adding that this did not call into question the safety or control of nuclear weapons at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana. “The team did not demonstrate the right procedures,” he said, and as a result was rated a failure. To elaborate “could reveal a potential vulnerability” in the force, Kowalski said. In a written statement on its website, Kowalski’s command said there had been “tacticallevel errors” in the snap exercise, revealing “discrepancies.” Without more details it is difficult to reliably judge the extent and severity of the problem uncovered at Malmstrom, home of the 341st Missile Wing, which is one of three nuclear missile wings. Each wing operates 150 Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missiles, or ICBMs, on alert for potential launch against targets around the globe. On Capitol Hill, a spokesman for Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif., chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said that “two troubling inspections in a row at two different missile wings is unacceptable” to McKeon. “It is his sense that the Air Force must refocus on the nuclear mission,” spokesman John Noonan said. “The Air Force should hold failed leadership at the group and wing level accountable, recommit itself from the top down to the nuclear deterrent mission, and ensure a daily focus on its centrality to our nation’s security.” In response to word of the failed inspection, the press secretary for the Pentagon, George Little, said the bottom line for nuclear forces hasn’t changed: “Our nuclear forces remain fully capable and ready.” “While the fact that the unit made errors during this exercise is disappointing, this type of exercise is designed to push people to their limits and learn how to improve,” Little said. Asked whether the Air Force intends to take disciplinary action against anyone for the inspection failure, Kowalski said the Air Force is “looking into it.” Overall, the 341st wing “did well,” he said, earning ratings of excellent or outstanding in the majority of the 13 areas in which it was graded by inspectors. Those areas include management, administration, safety, security, emergency exercises, worker reliability and other facets of a mission that relies on teams of officers and enlisted personnel.

cancer drug helps survival

CHICAGO (AP) — There’s a sense of urgency to the quest for workplace harmony, as baby boomers delay retirement and work side-by-side with people young enough to be their children — or grandchildren. Put people of widely different ages together — and there are bound to be differences. Baby boomers, for example, are workaholics, while younger workers may demand more of a work-life balance. The solution for a growing number of companies: generational awareness training to help foster understanding and more effective communication among its workers. Employees are taught about the characteristics that define each generation, from their core values to their childhood

A push for harmony among workers, young and old
and adolescent experiences to the type of figures they regard as heroes. Then workshop leaders typically drill down into how those attributes play into the strengths and weaknesses each age group offers on the job. The goal is that by learning why people of different generations act the way they do, companies can better emphasize their employees’ strengths and find ways to overcome challenges “The Boomers say, ‘Now I understand a little bit more of why they’re always on their phones’,” said Juergen Deutzer, who leads generational training at San Diego-based Scripps Health for about 200 employees a year. “Gen Y says, ‘Maybe I need to be a little bit more understanding if someone doesn’t get a

Walk-in registration will be held at the park tennis courts from 9-10:30 a.m. and registration is $5 per person to compete. The price includes a tomahawk, knife throwing exhibition and instruction by expert throwers. Participants can check out the exhibition, receive instruc-

The contest is open to all ages and brackets are K-2nd grade, 3rd-5th grade, 6th-8th grade, High School, Adult and AdultSenior (50+).

grasp on technology’.” Companies downplay friction between old and young workers as a reason for training. They say it’s more a matter of helping people of different ages connect, which affects group cohesion, employee satisfaction and the overall quality of work. “There was no animosity, no aggression, none of that,” said Scott Redfearn, the top human resources executive at Protiviti, a global consulting firm based (Continued from page 1) cook for the upcoming school in Menlo Park, Calif., that began offeryear; ing generational training earlier this year.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Drugmaker Eli Lilly and Co. said its potential lung cancer treatment necitumumab met a key research goal by helping to increase survival time for patients in a late-stage study. Shares of Eli Lilly jumped 4.5 percent, or $2.41, to $55.97 Tuesday morning. The stock has traded between $42.10 and $58.40 over the past year. The Indianapolis company said Tuesday that patients with an advanced form of lung cancer that has spread — stage-four metastatic squamous non-small cell lung cancer — who received necitumumab and two different chemotherapies lived longer than patients who received just chemotherapy. The initial results from the study did not detail the length of overall survival time. It said it will present study results at a scientific meeting next year. Necitumumab has no approved uses, but Lilly plans to submit the drug to regulators for approval before the end of 2014. The drugmaker is dealing with the expiration of patents protecting some key products from generic competition. For instance, its top seller, the antidepressant Cymbalta, loses U.S. patent protection later this year. Because of this, investors and analysts who follow the company have been closely watching its pipeline of drugs under development. Necitumumab is a potential biologic drug that was developed by Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. and ImClone Systems Inc., which Lilly bought in 2008. Bristol-Myers ended its collaboration with Lilly over the drug earlier this year. Biologic drugs are produced from living cells instead of by mixing chemicals together.

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
Percutaneous coronary intervention is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses a catheter to insert a small mesh tube called a stent to open up blood vessels in the heart with blockages caused by plaque buildup, a condition known as atherosclerosis. Using fluoroscopic X-ray imaging as a guide, the catheter is usually inserted into the blood vessel either in the groin or in the arm, then threaded through the blood vessels into the area of the heart where the coronary artery is blocked or narrowed. When the tip is in place, a balloon at the tip covered with the stent is inflated. The balloon simultaneously compresses the plaque and expands the stent. Once the plaque has been compressed and the stent is in place, the balloon is deflated and withdrawn, while the stent stays in the artery, holding it open to allow blood to flow freely.

Answers Monday’s questions: Used by Tonto on the radio show “The Lone Ranger,” the title Kemo Sabe means “white shirt” in the Apache tongue and “soggy shrub” in Navajo. It was intended to mean “faithful friend.” Quicksand doesn’t work by pulling you down. Nearly always found above a spring, which creates a supersaturated condition that makes the sand frictionless, quicksand cannot support weight. In addition, it’s airless, which creates suction as you struggle. The most effective way to escape quicksand is to position yourself on top of it and “roll” out. Today’s questions: Who was the voice of Mr. Ed? How long is a cosmic year? Answers in Thursday’s Herald. Today’s joke; A guy walking down a street one afternoon passes an old man sitting on the side of the road with a large sack. The younger guy says to the old man, “Watcha got in the sack?” The old man responds, “I got some monkeys in that there sack.” The younger man asks, “If I guess how many monkeys you got in the sack, can I keep one?” The old man replies, “Son, if you guess how many monkeys I got in this sack, I’ll give you both of ‘em!”


A heart attack stopped Mark. We got him running again.
After a nine-mile run with the cross-country team, Coach Mark suffered a massive heart attack. He was airlifted to Lima Memorial, where cardiologists found several coronary arteries dangerously blocked. Using minimally invasive surgery, surgeons installed stents to force the blocked arteries open. After his life-saving surgery, Mark knew he faced a long road ahead – preparing for his next marathon. With Lima Memorial’s heart and vascular team in his corner, Mark takes it all in stride.
