Telling The Tri-County’s Story Since 1869

Delphos, Ohio
dren to spend some quality time together enjoying pure, uncomplicated play. Activities are designed to stimulate and celebrate the imagination surrounding the Canal Days 2013 theme of “Feel the Magic.” DAAG and the Delphos Public Library are new to supporting the Children’s Activity/Creativity Tent and everyone involved is very excited to be a part of generating enthusiasm and fun for the children and parents. Both Library Director Kelly Rist and DAAG Executive Director Shauna Turner-Smith brain-stormed the “big idea” surrounding the merging of “Magic” with art- and knowledgebased experiences that will showcase the Art in DAAG and the resources of the Delphos Public Library. “We have pooled together a great group of volunteers from our staff, board members and students from both local schools,” Rist said. In the main tent, there will be interactive learning, crafts, game and art stations for children. Kids can learn about and do several magic experiments in the Messy Zone! In the Makeand-Take station, kids will make their own magic/sorcerer wands. With Puzzle a Rama!, participants put together a giant puzzle with magical images in different art styles. At the Avant Artful Creation! station, children can create a colorful flower from a plastic bottle (as if by magic). In addition, there is a second smaller tent outside DAAG where a special activity is taking place on the face of the building, Canal Days 2013 Giant Mosaic and Magic Banner. “We will need hundreds of participants to finish this banner and perhaps we will carry it in the Canal Days Parade,” Turner-Smith stated. Both Rist and TurnerSmith thoroughly enjoy the volunteer work. “I am happy to be part ‘America’s friendliest City’ and look forward to meeting more adults and children through our time at the Canal Days,” Rist said.

(Delphos Herald/Stephanie Groves) BY NANCY SPENCER See BEEF, page 10 Herald Editor nspencer@delphosherald.com LIMA — Megan Joseph has a way with goats. Allen County goats that is. The eight-year 4-H veteran took Grand Champion and Reserve Champion Born and Raised at the fair this year. Joseph, the daughter of Kim and Norm Elwer, said showing goats came naturally. “The project is something that just clicks with me,” she said. “I love the knowledge I’ve learned from them and the size is perfect for me. I absolutely love competing and see-

ing how far my animal has come.” While taking home serious hardware and cleaning up in the Born and Raised category is satisfying, Joseph said the long haul is also important. “It’s not about winning and losing it all; I’ve had my fair share of losses and wins,” she said. “I’ve learned it’s about taking all the experience over the years and putting it toward the next year’s project.” The Junior Fair Board member is in the Allen County Does and Kids 4-H Club and gives credit where credit is due. “My leader, Karinda Miller, is an amazing woman and runs a very organized club,” Joseph said. “Our club is thorough and even exhibitors with projects other than goats receive individual treatment in order to help them prepare for the fair.” Joseph enjoys passing on her experience as well. “I’ve learned to share my experiences with those younger than me so I can help them in the best way possible,” she added. “I love being an example for the youth and sharing with them.” When she’s not hanging around the goat barns, Joseph can be found munching on fair food. “The food! That’s my favorite part of the fair,” she said with a laugh. “Being a runner, I love all the fair food.” Joseph was also in the Allen County K-9 Dog Club for seven years.


Ragtime Riverboat Rats close Music in Park series
The Ragtime Riverboat Rats will close out the Delphos Rotary Club’s Music in the Park Series at 6 p.m. Sunday at the Hanser Pavilion in Stadium Park. The Ragtime Riverboat Rats dates back to the early 1980s and features music that is fun and has stood the test of time. They present a program reminiscent of the showboat era with good old ragtime music, some Jolson, Americana and a strong flavor of patriotism. The music and the mood is happy, lively and toe-tapping. Young and old alike enjoy the nostalgic memories evoked. They have created a versatile style and repertoire of ragtime, Dixieland, jazz, golden oldies and original songs about love and travel. The music will put a smile on your face, a tap in your toes and a song in your heart. Food service and refreshments will begin at 5:30 p.m. (Submitted photo)

50 Years Ago – 1963 Since last week, a bulldozer and an earth scraper have been used to clear and grade a 13-½ acre tract of unused land behind the Ottoville School. The land will be turned into a community park. Money raised over the last three years by Ottoville Lions Club is paying for the excavating, expected to take possibly two more weeks. Members of Cub Pack 65 and their parents held their annual picnic recently at the Leo German Grove along the Auglaize River. Arrangements for the day were made by committees appointed by Don Schramm, chairman of the pack. Schramm was assisted by Rollin Weaver in setting up tables and charcoal stoves.

Jury: Life in prison for Military jury convicts Afghanistan massacre soldier in Fort Hood attack
By GENE JOHNSON Associated Press By PAUL J. WEBER and WILL WEISSERT Associated Press FORT HOOD, Texas — A military jury on Friday convicted Maj. Nidal Hasan in the deadly 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, making the Army psychiatrist eligible for the death penalty in the shocking assault against American troops by one of their own on home soil. There was never any doubt that Hasan was the gunman. He acknowledged to the jury that he was the one who pulled the trigger on fellow soldiers as they prepared to deploy overseas to Iraq and Afghanistan. And he barely defended himself during a three-week trial. The unanimous decision on all 13 counts of premeditated murder made Hasan eligible for execution in the sentencing phase that begins Monday. “This is where members (of

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. — The U.S. soldier who massacred 16 Afghan civilians last year in one of the worst atrocities of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars was sentenced Friday to life in prison with no chance of parole. Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, 40, who pleaded guilty in June in a deal to avoid the death penalty, showed no emotion as the verdict was announced at Joint Base Lewis-McChord south of Seattle. Bales’ mother, sitting in the front row of the court, bowed her head, rocked in her seat, and wept. An interpreter flashed a thumbs-up sign to a row of Afghan villagers who were either wounded or lost family members in the March 11, 2012 attacks.



the jury) decide whether you will live or whether you will die,” said Col. Tara Osborn, the trial judge. Hasan, who said he acted to protect Muslim insurgents abroad from American aggression, did not react to the verdict, looking straight at jurors as they announced their findings. After the hearing, relatives of the dead and wounded fought back tears. Some smiled and warmly patted each other’s shoulders as they left court. Because Hasan never denied his actions, the courtmartial was always less about a conviction than it was about ensuring he received a death sentence. From the beginning, the federal government has sought to execute Hasan, believing that any sentence short of a lethal injection would deprive the military and the families of the dead of the justice they have sought for nearly four years.

T his and
The immigrant ancestor of all the Dienstberger families in Delphos was Jacob Dienstberger, who came to America in 1850 when he was 18 years old. He came with a friend, George Burger. Jacob was born 4 July 1831 to Lorenz and Johanna (Schalk) Dienstberger in Baden, Germany. His grandparents were Johann Dienstberger and Gertrud Buche. Jacob was one of four children: Gertrud, born 7 December 1817; Johann Baptist, born 2 August 1819; Nicolaus, born 21 November 1822; and Jacob. Jacob learned the trade of a blacksmith while in his homeland. He and his friend settled in Pawntucket, Conn. Jacob completed an apprenticeship in blacksmithing in Norwich, Conn. He came to Delphos in September, 1851, and followed his trade for a time, then worked in an iron foundry. Two of his siblings, Nick and Gertrud, also came to America and both stayed in Connecticut. Gertrud married Philip Ante and Nick married a widow lady by the name of Mary. Their brother, Johann Baptist, remained in Germany. Jacob declared his intention of becoming a United States citizen in 1852 and was naturalized in 1855. He married Caroline Gessner in 1853. He would have been 22 and she was about 18. They were married in a log cabin east of Delphos. Caroline came to the United States with her parents, Christopher Gessner and Magdaline Grundmiller, when she was about 5 years old. Caroline was born in Saxony, Germany, on 15 January 1835. In 1860, Jacob began business for himself as a wagon and carriage maker. The 1885 Allen County History described his business success as “and has accumulated a handsome competency.” Jacob built the historic brick house which was once located on East Second Street, across from the Commercial Bank (now First Federal), until it was moved to the corner of Washington and East Second Street. (Note Paul Roger Dienstberger, who now lives in Ashland, proudly stated that he was the last baby born in that historic home.) The Allen County History noted that Jacob was very interested in the coal and iron trade, from which he derived a handsome revenue. Jacob also served on the Delphos City Council and filled other official positions with honor and trust. He

(*Charles and Rosina’s children; +Christopher and Catherine’s children) (Submitted photo) served in the Civil War in the 33rd Regiment of the Regular Ohio Volunteer Infantry Co. I. He was a private. He was a member of the GAR. Jacob and Caroline had four children: Charles (a blacksmith with his father), who married Rosina Wiedemann; Christopher (a painter with his father), who married Catherine Phlosphler; Amelia, wife of Tobias Foster (a blacksmith in Spencerville); and Mary, who married Henry Jettinghoff. Jacob and Caroline were fortunate to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary on 26 September 1903. They were loyal members of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Delphos. It was noted that in Germany, all of the Dienstberger family had been of the Catholic faith. Jacob died 15 August 1904. He had suffered a stroke back in 1897 and suffered partial paralysis. He was buried in the West Side Cemetery in Delphos, Van Wert County. Caroline passed away 22 December 1922. (The Dienstberger family will be continued next week.)

Window to the Past
Open auto body repair shop here A.D. Rupert is opening an auto body and fender repair shop in Delphos. It will be known as the Delphos Body Works, located in the Earl Hollsmith paint shop on Canal Street, better known as “Pete’s” Paint Shop, where Mr. Rupert has rented space for his work. Mr. Rupert is a former Delphos resident. He has had a long experience in the business, having worked at auto body building and repairing for twelve years past. He operated a shop at Findlay for two years and sold the business recently to locate in Delphos. He will open his shop here the first of next week. Delphos Herald, Mar. 19, 1929 —Mechanically drunk “Mechanically drunk, not socially intoxicated,” may soon be an official legal term here. It was used recently by a police surgeon who gave evidence in the case of a motorist charged with being drunk in charge of an automobile. “He was not socially intoxicated, but was mechanically drunk,” said the surgeon, and was ordered to pay $100. Apparently “mechanically drunk” is not as heinous an offense as “socially drunk.” Delphos Herald, Mar. 16, 1929 —Gramm van highly praised A Gramm van, built in Delphos and delivered to the Ben Langan Fireproof Storage Company, St. Louis, Mo., was selected from a large fleet of vans manufactured by some of the largest truck makers of the country, for a very unusual trip, that of transporting a consignment of household goods from New York City to Denver, Colorado. The van, which is of 1000 cubic feet capacity, was in Delphos last week, having been brought here by the drivers, for inspection at the local plant.

A consignment of household goods was taken from St. Louis to Wilmington, Delaware. The truck then proceeded to New York where the load for Denver was loaded up. The truck was brought to Delphos with the return load and stopped here a day for inspection thoroughly. The driver of the truck stated that no repairs of any kind have been made since they received the truck even though this van was thrown into a ditch while hauling a heavy load. This accident occurred several months ago. Traveling along in the night at 35 miles per hour, on a wet and slippery road, it struck a fence rail left there by some thoughtless person and was thrown from the road. Thirty-six minutes of steady tugging and pulling by a power winch were required to place it back on the road. Careful inspection found it undamaged and it proceeded on its way. The drivers while here stated that the owners consider this van the best they have in their fleet, even though some of their vans are built by the biggest truck manufacturers in the country. The following is taken from a letter written by the Ben Langen Company personally to A. Gramm, concerning this trip. “We have advised New York that the best truck and the best crew in the United States would handle the job.” Mr. Turner, in speaking of their experience with the Gramm, said that it is giving better satisfaction than any truck he has ever driven. He was especially pleased with the way in which it took the mountain grades in the east, and in its ease of handling. The advantage of having the Gramm plant located in Delphos on the Lincoln Highway was clearly shown. B.A. Gramm, president of Gramm Motors, Inc., brought out very clearly in his recent talk to Kiwanis, the many manufacturing advantages which Delphos enjoys because of it splendid geographical location. “Delphos”, Mr. Gramm said, “is very nearly in the center of the industrial belt of the country and even if it made no effort to secure new industries, they will come all over the town, looking for a place to settle.” It is reasonable to believe that when the superior qualities of the Gramm product become more generally known to owners of large fleets, the already large output of the

Main St. Delphos Herald, July 3, 1929 —— Delphos girl rescued at Middle Point Quarry Miss Alice Klausing, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. A.J. Klausing of east of Delphos, had a narrow escape from drowning at the popular Middle Point stone quarry swimming pool Monday night. Miss Klausing accompanied by Misses Mary Ellen Say and Mary Eiche, motored to the pond for a swim. She can not swim and when she stepped off a rock she immediately sank but called for help after coming to the surface. The two companions saw her predicament and went to her aid. Both are fair swimmers and succeeded in keeping her from going under the third time. Miss Eiche was nearly exhausted from the struggle when cries for help attracted two men on the scene. The two, Harry Pine, Harlan, Indiana and R. Steel of Decatur, Indiana, bricklayers working on Jackson-Hoaglin school, jumped into the water with their clothes on and took the Klausing girl to shore. Attempts to revive the girl at the scene were made and after she was partially revived she was taken to the office of Dr. Beach at Middle Point by Miss Isabel Weger who was attending a picnic at the pond. Miss Weger brought the girl to Delphos after treatment and she was taken to the J.H. Say home on South Main Street. She was suffering from shock and pains in her head and a local physician rendered aid. She was then taken to the home of her parents. Quick thinking by Miss Say, Miss Eiche and the efforts of the Indiana men are believed to have averted a drowning fatality. Delphos Herald, July 2, 1929 —See PAST, page 10

WEST CARROLLTON (AP) — A man whose heart stopped beating for 45 minutes credits his faith for being alive and says stunned doctors who declared him dead aren’t sure what happened. The body of diesel mechanic Tony Yahle was being prepared by nurses to be seen by his family Aug. 5 when he began to show signs of life, doctors said. He fully awakened at the hospital five days later. Yahle, a 37-year-old West Carrollton resident, has been a topic of conversation since, said cardiologist Dr. Raja Nazir. “In the last 20 years, I’ve never seen anybody who we have pronounced dead … and then for him to come back, I’ve

never seen it,” Nazir told the Dayton Daily News. “Actually, I’ve never heard of it.” Yahle says it’s a miracle and that doctors couldn’t find any defects in his heart. Their last guess was that it was all the result of a possible viral infection, he said. Yahle’s teenage son said he spoke to his father shortly before he revived, the newspaper reported Tuesday. “I pointed at him and said, ‘Dad, you’re not going to die today’,” said 18-yearold Lawrence Yahle. “I stood there for a few more seconds. I was about to walk back to comfort the family, and that’s when he started showing signs of a heartbeat.”

“All great change in America begins at the dinner table.” — Ronald Reagan, 40th President of the United States

Supporting each other
The carpeting came from one store; the furniture another; and the appliances yet another. When my father owned his business, he made it a practice to shop locally and support those who supported his business. It was a good practice and still is today and perhaps more important than ever. I know it sometimes is more attractive to leave Delphos to shop and there are certain things that just aren’t available here. What would you think if you couldn’t get anything here? What if there were no grocery store, no florists or restaurants. How about that plumbing part you need late Saturday afternoon? In the time it takes to get ready to go somewhere else, get there, get the part and get home, you could have run up to the local hardware store, got the part, gone home, installed the part and be drinking a cold beverage and watching TV by the time you got home from somewhere else. Look at it this way. Time is money. If you don’t value your time, you must not have enough to do. Come over to my house; I’ll put you to work. I never seem to have enough time to do most of the things I need to at home. I know money is money, too. But if we don’t support the ones who support us, who will? Shopping locally helps our local economy. When you spend your dollars at an independent, local business, you keep more money here — supporting your community’s social services, schools, your public library and local non-profits. According to elephantjournal.com, locally-owned businesses return


On the Other hand
about 80 percent of each dollar to their community. And each dollar spent at a local business will return up to five times that amount within your community through city taxes, employees’ wages and purchases of materials, supplies and services at other independent businesses. It only makes sense to shop locally. Local supports local and in this day and age of dwindling state and federal support to emergency and social services and our schools, it is more important than ever. Now, most of us make purchases at a national store of some sort. But if we just make most of our purchases from businesses that are local, if we make the conscious decision to support our own community, more good things will happen where we live. And where we live is pretty important. I like it here. Delphos has charm and the people are second to none. I can remember when Fruehauf went out. My dad was afraid Delphos would dry up and blow away. But we’re still here. We persevere. Times are tough and I have a feeling they are going to get a little worse before they get better. Let’s stick together and see if we can all make it.

DEAR EDITOR: On behalf of the volunteers who have just completed our annual Marbletown Festival, I would like to sincerely thank the businesses in our community and the area residents who turned out to make our 2013 event the most successful ever. As has been the case since our community celebration began, funds you helped us to raise will be used to make improvements in Garfield Park, which draws its history from the very beginnings of our neighborhood. We are very grateful for the corporate contributions we received and for the many folks who took part in our activities or purchased our raffle items and souvenirs. We hope you will plan to join us in early 2014 for our next Marbletown Festival. Sincerely, Kathy Gengler Marbletown Festival Committee Chair

Uncovering the full truth about IRS abuse of power
BY U.S. SENATOR ROB PORTMAN Big scandals start off as small stories. The controversy engulfing the Internal Revenue Service seems to grow bigger every day. What began as what the Obama administration said was a handful of “rogue agents” in a local Cincinnati office has turned into a scandal that runs all the way to the highest levels of the IRS and maybe beyond. The question every American should be asking is this: Just how far does this story go, and when is President Barack Obama going to do something about it? In the run-up to the last election, I started receiving troubling reports from conservative groups in Ohio about alleged mistreatment by the IRS. In response, in March 2012, I spearheaded a Senate letter to the IRS demanding answers. Six weeks later IRS officials assured us that only legitimate criteria were used to evaluate tax-exempt groups. That assurance proved false, and instead of correcting the record when they say they learned the truth a week later, the IRS remained silent. The truth was uncovered only when the has confirmed what many had suspress began to report on the agen- pected but could not prove — the misconduct involved not only Ms. cy’s ideological targeting. But the cover-up didn’t end Lerner and the Washington office when IRS misconduct became generally, but specifically includpublic. Initially, the IRS sought to ed the IRS chief counsel, one of explain away its political target- only two Obama political appoining as a “shortcut” to deal with a tees in the entire agency. Several “surge” in tax-exempt applications. news outlets have now reported But the record soon revealed that that the chief counsel may have tax-exempt applications actually met with the president at the White House on April 23, 2012, declined the year the targetjust two days before the ing began. Then the IRS IRS issued a revised set claimed that any misconduct of “be on the lookout” could be attributed to a handinstructions to IRS agents ful of “rogue” employees reviewing tax-exempt from a regional office, rather applications that appear than at the direction of senior to target Tea Party groups officials in Washington, for more stringent review. D.C. But investigators soon Perhaps most troubling, found letters targeting Tea the White House’s timeParty groups signed by Lois line of events — who Lerner, the WashingtonPortman knew what and when — based IRS official who led has changed repeatedly the division that carried out the targeting policy. Ms. Lerner since news of improper targeting refused to answer questions from a first became public. And the scope of the scandal congressional committee investigating this issue, choosing instead to is growing. Just a few days ago, invoke her Fifth Amendment right congressional investigators released emails suggesting that staff at the against self-incrimination. Now an IRS whistle-blower Federal Election Commission were engaged in conservative targeting of their own, perhaps with improper help from Ms. Lerner and the IRS. Now evidence is mounting that one of the most powerful agencies of the federal government — the Securities and Exchange Commission — has also engaged in political targeting. In a letter to the chairwoman of the SEC, congressional leaders revealed that documents produced for the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform “indicate that the SEC has been under immense pressure from elected officials and special interest groups as part of a government-wide effort to stifle political speech.” With each new revelation we discover more incompetence, and more examples of politicized enforcement of the law — all enemies of good governance. And while the Obama administration has voiced outrage about government misconduct, it has failed to provide the American people and congressional investigators with critical information and promised transparency. Outrage has not led to action. Instead, the president and

If I had a son, a father
KATHLEEN PARKER those words.

Moderately confused

his administration have ignored requests for more information — including multiple specific requests from me. They also have not fully answered a bipartisan investigation by the Senate Finance Committee of which I am a member. In total opposition to the words and assurances of the White House, the IRS, which answers to the president, has simply failed to comply with many of the committee’s requests. Based on its conduct, the position of the Obama administration seems to be that if they ignore these scandals long enough, they will simply go away. The White House has gone so far as to refer to the outrage surrounding revelations about the IRS as a “phony scandal.” That’s a shame. This pattern of misconduct represents everything that is wrong with Washington, and it is behavior like this that has shattered the trust of the American people in their government. If the Administration does not come clean soon, the stain from this scandal will not just be on the IRS, but on the Administration as a whole.

Point of View
WASHINGTON — If I had a son, he would look like Christopher Lane, the 22-year-old Australian baseball player shot dead while jogging in Oklahoma. If I had a father, he’d look like Delbert Belton, the 88-year-old World War II veteran beaten to death in Spokane, Wash. And yes, if I had a son, he’d look like the white teenager who police say drove the getaway car in the Oklahoma killing. These are all true statements if we identify ourselves and each other only by the color of our skin, which, increasingly seems to be the case — including our own president. Barack Obama helped lead the way when he identified himself with Trayvon Martin, shot by George Zimmerman in the neighborhood-watch catastrophe with which all are familiar. Stepping out from his usual duties of drawing meaningless red lines in the Syrian sand, the president splashed red paint across the American landscape: “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” In so saying, he essentially gave permission for all to identify themselves by race with the victim or the accused. How sad as we approach the 50th anniversary of the march Martin Luther King Jr. led on Washington that even the president resorts to judging not by the content of one’s character but by the color of his skin — the antithesis of the great dream King articulated with

Obama went even further after the Zimmerman verdict, expressing his self-identification not as leader of a racially diverse nation — or as the son of a white mother — but as a black man who remembers women clutching their purses tighter when he entered an elevator, and being followed in department stores. All because he was black? Even today, I am followed when I go to the second floor of a boutique in Georgetown. Apparently, store policy requires that an attendant be upstairs when a shopper is. The way department store clerks follow me around, you’d think my face was plastered on a “Wanted for Shoplifting” poster. This is especially so if I’m dressed like a slob. In my 20s, I conducted an experiment when I had the opposite problem. No clerk would help me. It occurred to me that my ratty jeans and T-shirt might be the problem, so I went home, changed into a dress, and returned. You’d have thought I was a honey bun in a bee hive. Just for fun, I bought a $38,000 purse. (That’s a joke.) Was the clerk prejudiced? You bet. But like it or not, the way we present ourselves to the world affects the way we are treated. Thus it has always been. I’m betting that few women today clutch their purses tighter when a well-groomed man, black or white, enters the elevator. A punk wearing his britches around his rump and telegraphing attitude? Even Jesse Jackson — or Eminem — might feel a tingle of discomfort. Nothing is fair about profiling, but one’s treatment by a stranger is not always necessarily linked to one’s racial or ethnic history.

Sometimes it’s just … you. The killings leading the news the past several days have been horrific in their apparent randomness. Were they racially motivated? Had the perps been white and the victims black, would Obama have identified with them? More to immediate concerns, did the president’s identification with Martin nourish the killing passions of these youths? Hard to say with any certainty, though one of those charged in the Oklahoma shooting apparently tweeted some messages earlier this summer that unmistakenly convey racial animus toward whites. They might be dismissed as Twitter nonsense — but for the dead body. We do know this much for certain: Had the races been reversed, the usual suspects would have had much to say. White teens beat up an elderly black veteran and leave him for dead? White teens shoot a talented black athlete visiting from another country? Riots. I make these observations not to further exacerbate a problem but in the hope that we can stop this craziness before things escalate. The conversation-about-race that pundits keep insisting we need to have should end where it began. Maybe in his remarks on the 50th anniversary of the greatest peaceful demonstration in history, Obama can remind Americans that if we had sons and fathers, they’d look like Christopher Lane and Delbert Belton, as well as Trayvon Martin. Victim in chief is no role for a president. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.

Wildlife Ohio
OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Report CENTRAL OHIO Alum Creek Lake (Delaware County) - Smallmouth bass can be caught in this lake north of Columbus; using crankbaits and spinner baits, target the main and secondary lake points where rip-rap or hard bottom is present. White bass are being caught on in-line spinners and blade baits; look for dense areas of gizzard shad on the surface. Crappies are being found around wood in 10-15 feet of water use jigs or minnows. Crappie will move into shallower water as temperature decrease this fall. Muskellunge can provide good action this time of year; troll crankbaits along the points and dam. Rush Creek Lake (Fairfield County) - Channel catfish can be caught in this lake east of Lancaster. Use cut shad, shrimp or nightcrawlers fished in the east or south ends for best results. Bluegill are providing some action around cover in the east end; use wax worms or red worms under a bobber. Largemouth bass are also being caught on spinner baits and must be 15 inches or longer to keep. 10-HP limit on lake. NORTHWEST OHIO Pleasant Hill Reservoir (Richland/Ashland County line) - With 781 acres of water and 13 miles of shoreline, Pleasant Hill — located next to Mohican State Forest, 2 miles southwest of Perrysville — has plenty to offer. The boat ramp and marina are located on Covert Road, right off SR 95. Water levels are at normal levels right now. Good numbers of crappie from 9-10 inches can be found; try minnows under a slip bobber in 8-12 feet of water near submerged trees. The lake also has excellent populations of largemouth bass, saugeye and yellow perch. For saugeye, try trolling in 10-15 feet of water in front of the beach. For largemouth, try around the stumps at the lower end of the reservoir. Lake McKarns (Williams County) - Located on the St. Joseph Wildlife Area, south of Montpelier on CR J and west of CR 10, the lake is 70 acres in size and is a good place to try for some largemouth bass this time of year; try focusing on the structure in the southwest area of the lake with top-water lures fished along the structure edges. For largemouth bass, 2 fish may be kept less than 14 inches and 1 20 inches or greater may be kept for a total limit of 3. The lake features a boat ramp and boats are limited to 10-HP engines. NORTHEAST OHIO Mogadore Reservoir (Portage County) - Anglers have really enjoyed the catfish action this summer here. It has continued to produce nice catches of channels, particularly using shad caught by cast nets. Most fish are being caught after the sun goes down in the shallow flat areas. Pleasant Hill Reservoir (Ashland/Richland counties) - The spillway (below the dam) here has been producing a mixed bag of saugeye, white bass, crappie and bluegill; popular baits have been smaller jigs and soft plastics, inline spinners, maggots and jigs. SOUTHEAST OHIO Dillon Reservoir (Muskingum County) - Take advantage of the cooler temperatures and start looking for bass in this 1,376-acre lake. Try top-water baits near weed-lines or plastic worms in dark colors which include purple, motor oil and black; generally this time of year, the most successful times will be late evening and early morning but if you’re feeling adventurous, fish may be caught throughout the night. Some bluegill and other sunfish may also be caught using nightcrawlers below a bobber; target the marina area. Lake Logan (Hocking County) - Nice catches of largemouth bass have been found in this 333-acre lake in the past. Most anglers prefer fishing the shorelines from a boat; try spinner baits to target the fish. This lake is also popular with catfish anglers; nightcrawlers, chicken livers, or prepared catfish baits work well when fished on the bottom in addition to cut bait such as shad or suckers. SOUTHWEST OHIO Acton Lake (Preble County) - Good numbers of 1- to 3-pound channel catfish are being caught at this lake in Hueston Woods State Park. Try fishing on the bottom using chicken livers or shrimp; the shoreline area between the swimming beach and Sugar Camp area has been best. Grand Lake St. Marys (Auglaize/Mercer counties) - Channel catfish are popular at Ohio’s largest inland lake; try fishing on the bottom with nightcrawlers, chicken livers, shrimp, or cut baits. Prime areas include the Windy Point fishing pier and the stone piers along the east bank. Increase your chances of catching a large flathead catfish by using large chub minnows or live sunfish for bait. Paint Creek Lake (Highland County) - Channel catfish are being caught below the dam in the tail waters; successful anglers are using nightcrawlers, chicken livers and cut baits fished on the bottom. For saugeyes in the lake, try casting or trolling silver-colored crankbaits on flats near the beach and Plum Run islands area. OHIO RIVER Hannibal Lock and Dam Tailwater - Hybrid-striped bass in the 5- to 7-pound range have been caught in good numbers in the past, the majority usually on skipjack or shad; try casting out into the tailwater section and let your bait drift, or place under an agitator and retrieve in short jerks. Fishing off one of the platforms or along the walkway near the dam are your best bets. Catfish can still be caught with cut bait and skipjack; although night fishing yields the best results, the recent cooler temperatures may work to your advantage. New Richmond to Meldahl Dam (Clermont County) - Catfishing is still heating up along the Ohio River; water levels are still slightly low in some areas but anglers are reporting good catches on raw or seasoned chicken breast. Stripers are being caught along the mouths of creeks flowing into the river. Watch for skipjack action in these areas; stripers will be foraging for them. LAKE ERIE 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 through Aug. 31; minimum size limit is 12 inches. … The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit is 5 fish per angler, with a 14-inch minimum size limit. Western Basin: Walleye fishing was best around “L” can, Toussaint Reef and the islands area near the Canadian border. Trollers have been catching fish on worm harnesses or with divers and spoons, drifters by casting mayfly rigs or weight-forward spinners tipped with worms. … Yellow perch fishing was best north of the water intake off of Toledo, north of Port Clinton, north of the navigation buoy off of Catawba Island, near Niagara Reef, “D” and “C” cans, west of North Bass Island, E of the Kelleys Island airport and on the dumping grounds E of Marblehead; perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. … Largemouth bass fishing continues to be good in harbors and nearshore areas around Catawba and Marblehead.

Lindeman pleased with final tune-up against 2-time champs
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Two-time defending Division VI State football champion Marion Local Flyers gave Jefferson head football coach Bub Lindeman exactly what he wanted in Friday night’s final pre-season tune-up at Stadium Park. Though the Flyers won the varsity scrimmage 21-0 (3 touchdowns to none), the Wildcat coach was happy with how his team played. “They’re a very good team. You know what you’re going to get with Marion Local: a hard-hitting, physical team with a lot of speed,” Lindeman explained. “They have a great quarterback in Adam Bertke and a lot of weapons, especially (6-7) Ryan Bruns. We competed well and that‘s really what I wanted to see.” Both teams had a series of traditional scrimmage action: 10 plays. The Flyers got a 37-yard touchdown pass from the 6-6 senior Bertke (with Peyton Kramer converting the unrushed point-after), while the Red and White couldn’t score. When the action became game-situation with a 12-minute clock (2 quarter), Jefferson punted on its first possession and the Flyers drove 50 yards, finishing it with a 9-yard touchdown pass from Bertke to Troy Homan at 6:13. Kramer added the kick. The Flyers scored next at 2:44 on a 75-yard scoring catch and run from Bertke to Homan. Kramer tacked on the point-after. Junior cornerback Trevor Dudgeon picked off a Bertke pass on the next Marion possession but the Flyers put on the final tally of the varsity portion of the night’s action — a 13-yard pass from Bertke to Homan. Kramer accounted for the final score. “What this scrimmage does against

Busch dominates Bristol to win Nationwide race
Associated Press I, we work real well together.” B r a d Keselowski finished second and was followed by Austin Dillon and Justin Allgaier. Kyle Larson was fifth, while Trevor Bayne was sixth and followed by Ty Dillon and Kasey Kahne. Brian Scott and Elliott Sadler rounded out the top 10. Sam Hornish Jr. entered the race as the Nationwide Series points leader but had a spark plug wire problem and finished 12th. Busch won’t have such an easy go of it in tonight’s Cup race after a spin in qualifying prevented him from making a lap. He’ll start last in the 43-car field and have to fight hard to avoid being lapped early on the .533-mile bullring. “It’s a whole different ball game tomorrow, for sure,” he ended. “In qualifying, I just overstepped it, got too high, I was a little loose and I just screwed up. It’s not like I haven’t come from deep in the field before, but it’s going to be a tall order.” Hamlin grabs the pole at Bristol: Denny Hamlin, searching for anything to save his season, got a slight boost Friday with a pole-winning run at Bristol Motor Speedway. Hamlin turned a lap 128.969 mph around the 0.533-mile bullring to put his Toyota in the top starting spot for tonight’s race. Although it’s his fourth pole of the season, it’s his first career pole at Bristol, where Hamlin is the defending race winner. But he heads into the race in search of anything positive: He’s 25th in points — largely because he missed four races with a fractured vertebra suffered in a crash at California — and entered Bristol stuck in a miserable 9-race slump in which he hasn’t logged a finish higher than 18th. Although he wants to win a race, he’ll take any sort of minor victory. “It’s by far the worst run, these nine races, in my career,” he said. “A lot of it is our own doing. We got off track for a couple races because we’ve blown right front tires in consecutive weeks and we started changing our setups and we couldn’t find anything that was very good with that. That burnt another three, four weeks. We’ve had horsepower cut back. But we’re headed in the right direction. “At any moment, we can go from a 25th-place car to winning a pole and winning the race. There’s not a whole lot of teams

an opponent like this is really give you a chance to see your weaknesses,” Lindeman added. “We’ll watch the film (today) and address the things we need to in order to start the season. We did the things well we can control: played with effort and intensity, which we want. Plus, we stayed healthy.” The Flyers did lose starting center Matt Bertke to an apparent lower leg injury (carried off the field). The Jefferson junior varsity won two touchdowns to one, getting an 8-yard score from freshman Jace Stockwell to sophomore Grant Wallace; and a 3-yard toss from Stockwell to Aaron Parkins. Marion’s only JV score was a 14-yard TD toss by Duane Leugers. Jefferson welcomes in WaynesfieldGoshen 7:30 p.m. Friday to commence the 2013 gridiron campaign. Marion Local visits Shawnee to open the season Friday (7:30 p.m.).

BRISTOL, Tenn. — The crowd showered Kyle Busch with boos Friday night as he celebrated yet another Bristol Motor Speedway win in Victory Lane. “Whether you’re booing or cheering, glad you’re here,” Busch said over the public address system. “Hope you’re booing more tomorrow when we take home another trophy.” It wouldn’t be out of the question for Busch, who will be going for a Bristol sweep in tonight’s Sprint Cup Series race. He won Wednesday night’s Truck Series race and dominated Friday night’s Nationwide Series race, starting from the pole and leading 228 of the 250 laps. “You’ve got to win two to go for three, so here’s two,” explained Busch, who has 15 career national wins at Bristol and swept the week in August 2010. His win Friday night was his 60th Nationwide series win of his career and 120th spanning NASCAR’s three national series. It was also his 15th of the season after winning just one race in all three series last season. “It comes from preparation, it comes from the shop, it comes from practice here,” added Busch, who also praised crew chief Adam Stevens. “Adam and

Mathis and Cory Redding understand this is the one preseason game that matters most. While nobody should expect to see a flurry of trick plays or complex blitz packages, most starters will stay on the field longer and those on the cut-line will get one last chance to impress coaches before the cutdown to 75. For Luck and Weeden, there are other things to work on. Both are still getting accustomed to new offenses a n d n e w offens i v e coordinators.

that can say they can win at any moment but I feel like we can.” Hamlin’s lap was good enough to hold off 5-time Bristol winner Kurt Busch, who qualified second with a lap of 128.770. It’s the seventh front-row starting spot of the season for Busch, who is suddenly a hot commodity on the free-agent market with an offer to join Stewart-Haas Racing next season. Furniture Row Racing has made its offer to keep Busch and the driver fired from Penske Racing at the end of 2011 now finds himself not only wading through multiple prospects but vying for a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship. Although he’s winless on the year, consistency has him ranked ninth in points with three races remaining to set the Chase field. “The guys (at Furniture Row) know that this is the time now and they are all shaking my hand saying ‘Thanks’ and they are also saying ‘Let’s do this again next year’,” Busch added. “I’m like, ‘Heck, yeah. I’m right there with you.’ We have to stay focused on the present as well as balance the future and it’s a tough thing to do. You hope you can do it behind the scenes and it’s not out in the public. But today was a great reminder of how hard you have to work in this sport.”

NFL making news in 2013 ahead of upcoming season
By BARRY WILNER Associated Press The NFL never really shuts down. It kept rolling long after the lights came back on after a 37-minute delay at the Superdome in New Orleans and the Baltimore Ravens squeezed out a Super Bowl title. It’s rolling still, right into a new season that will kick off in less than two weeks and end with (shiver!) an outdoor Super Bowl in New Jersey. In between, there were plenty of headlines: Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested on murder charges; Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller has been suspended for the first six games for violating the league’s drug policy; and HGH testing is getting closer but still isn’t underway two years after the league and players agreed on the need for it. A rash of preseason injuries have prompted some players to question the NFL’s player safety initiatives. Already gone for the season are tight ends Dennis

Browns-Colts INDIANAPOLIS — Andrew Luck and Brandon Weeden have come a long way in a year. The two bright-eyed rookies who took turns staring at Hall of Fame busts during last summer’s rookie symposium are now established starters and franchise cornerstones. So when they meet again tonight, Luck and Weeden will be following a different preseason script — playing at least one half and likely into the third quarter as they try to fine-tune their offenses before the scores and games start counting. “This is the dress rehearsal, the most extended time, a chance to really go out there and hopefully put some good stuff on tape and if it’s not all good, a chance to fix it before the opener,” Luck said. “So there’s a lot of focus going into this game.” Not just for the starting quarterbacks in Indianapolis and Cleveland, either. The Colts (1-1), like most NFL teams, spent this week simulating a regular-season schedule of team meetings, practice and mapping out game plans. Even longtime veterans such as Robert

Again. Weeden, who had to win a quarterback competition for the second straight year, has led Cleveland (2-0) on six scoring drives in two games and will be out to prove that new coach Rob Chudzinski made the right call after selecting him as the starter Tuesday. “I’ve worked hard. I’m excited about what we have going on and our progress,” Weeden said. “Now we just got to keep it rolling. We got to keep going. I feel comfortable. I’m

excited. I love this system.” Luck has never had to contend with that sort of challenge. He became the incumbent the instant Indy parted ways with Peyton Manning and decided to take Luck with the No. 1 overall draft pick. But, like Weeden, he’s been far from perfect. Luck came into training camp with three primary goals: Improving his completion percentage, reducing the number of interceptions and winning more games. But a rash of injuries has made it tough to show the improvement. Indy is keeping its top two tight ends — Dwayne Allen (right foot) and Coby Fleener (right knee) — on the sideline. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw (right foot) will miss his third straight game, too, and now starting guard Mike McGlynn will sit out with a bruised knee. Weeden also has a tough task after losing two key running backs with injuries — Dion Lewis (broken leg) and Montario Hardesty (knee surgery) — and working with a receiving group that is still trying to prove itself. See OHIO, page 7

Pitta of Baltimore (what happened?) and Dustin Keller of Miami (same here), with more than a dozen others also sidelined. “It’s just weird how things have changed from the past,” noted Jets tight end Konrad Reuland. “Before, diving at the knees was a dirty play. Now hitting up high is a dirty play. It’s almost done a complete 180.” That might be understandable considering the emphasis Commissioner Roger Goodell is placing on player safety. The league has been named in concussion lawsuits brought by more than 4,000 former players who charge that the NFL didn’t protect them or warn them against the sport’s inherent dangers. Even before the regular season kicks off, the two sides are due in Senior U.S. District Judge Anita Brody’s court in Philadelphia to report any progress made during two months of mediation. Some believe the players’ claims could be worth $1 billion or more if they move forward in court. See NFL, page 7

Running back Trent Richardson made his preseason debut last week and Brandon Jackson, who is trying to win the job as Richardson’s backup, is likely to get extensive playing time against the Colts. Cleveland also will be without first-round draft pick Barkevious Mingo, who is recovering from a bruised lung. Those aren’t concerns for the 30-year-old Weeden, who remains confident he can get the job done. Luck owns one win over Weeden, having beaten the Browns 17-13 last October. And while winning is always a priority for Luck, the Colts’ franchise quarterback now understands the most important facet of tonight’s game is getting the offense in sync in its last real tuneup before the Sept. 8 season opener against Oakland. ——— Bengals-Cowboys ARLINGTON, Texas — Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys’ first-team offense are still looking for their first touchdown this preseason with Bill Callahan calling the plays. Eight-time Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten, coming off a record-setting season, still doesn’t even have a catch. “Yeah, don’t want to hurt that spleen, you know,” Witten joked this week about the injury he sustained last preseason before his 110 catches, an NFL single-season record for tight ends. There really is no reason to be too concerned about Romo and Witten but it would be nice to get in the end zone tonight in what will likely be their most extensive and last game action before things count for real. “Absolutely,” Witten said. “It’s all right though. You work on it in practice doing that stuff and this is the same system even though it’s a different play-caller, I’m sure that will all work out.” Dallas plays the fourth of its five preseason games, the first at home, against Cincinnati. It comes two weeks before the season opener against the New York Giants. The five series Romo has played this preseason have resulted in a field goal, a missed field goal, a punt and lost fumbles at the end of two big plays. The only score came after a drive started inside the Oakland 20 and lost 4 yards before the kick. Last weekend in a 12-7 loss at Arizona, Romo completed 7-of10 passes for 142 yards but was undone by two fumbles at end of completed passes, one inside the 10 and another by Dez Bryant. Those were the first of five first-half turnovers by the Cowboys, six overall. It will be a homecoming of sorts for third-year Cincinnati quar-

terback Andy Dalton, who played the first game of his TCU senior season at the Cowboys’ stadium, a victory over Oregon State that started a 13-0 season culminating with a Rose Bowl victory. Dalton is first quarterback to lead the Bengals to the playoffs each of his first two seasons and most of their offense is mostly intact from a year ago. “There hasn’t been a whole lot of new learning gong on so far,” Dalton said. “Everybody basically knows what we’re doing. That’s going to make us better going into the season.” The Bengals’ starting offense last week had 220 yards, including 115 yards passing and a touchdown by Dalton while going 9-of-14 passing, and built a 17-3 lead against Tennessee. Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green might be even back for a few plays against the Cowboys. Green bruised his left knee during the first training camp workout and returned to practice last week without playing so far in the Bengals’ two preseason victories. Bengals starting running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis sat out last weekend’s game just to get a rest, providing an opportunity for 5-9 Giovani Bernard, the second-round pick who had seven carries for 37 yards and a touchdown and turned a short pass into a 22-yard gain against the Titans. Bernard is expected to get a lot of time this season as the backup running back and on passing plays.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
your plans. Be mindful of others, but don’t forgo something you want to do. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Work on your situation at home. Whether you make physical, emotional or financial changes, you and yours will end up feeling satisfied and happy with the results. MONDAY, AUGUST 26, 2013 In the year ahead, your insight will guide you into interesting situations that will encourage you to expand your skills and friendships. Favors will be granted, and teamwork will help you reach goals that you have only dreamed about in the past. Travel is indicated.

As capital looks to avert shutdown, default looms Random attack in Spokane
By JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press WASHINGTON — Congressional Republican leaders and the Obama administration are trying to cut a deal that avoids a government shutdown in October while facing what could be an even bigger fight over the nation’s debt ceiling in the rest of the year. An agreement to keep the government operating at current spending levels through October and November would head off a politically costly disruption of federal services but still leave a clash looming, like the one that roiled the economy two years ago, over a possible government default. Neither party has come up with a way out of a debt showdown. “Right now there isn’t a plan, unfortunately, in Washington,” said Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, who has been one of eight Republicans negotiating with the White House over the budget. He said lawmakers and the White House can’t seem to act until deadlines are at hand and the pressure for a breakthrough is intense. The double dose of a short-term spending measure that expires in November and a debt limit deadline does create the kind of drama that prompts action. The coming budget fights mark a new season of uncertainty, which has emerged as an annual rite in Washington. This time the ritual is complicated further by President Barack Obama’s pending nomination of a Fed chairman to replace Ben Bernanke, whose term is ending. Investors and corporate leaders, already jittery over a debt ceiling fight, also will be trying to divine what Obama’s Fed selection could mean for monetary policy. “Bernanke’s departure is just one more unavoidable source of uncertainty,” said Lewis Alexander, U.S. chief economist at Nomura, a global investment bank. For now, the White House has abandoned its hopes for a large budget deal that would address both increases in tax revenue and reductions in long-term spending on programs such as Social Security and Medicare. Instead, it is proposing an overhaul in corporate taxes to close what it considers loopholes and reduce rates. This would be in exchange for additional spending on public works projects to create jobs. Republicans are demanding long-term spending cuts, with some insisting that any deal must jettison money to pay for Obama’s health care law. The White House argues that the attention on cutting spending is misplaced because the combination of existing cuts, higher taxes on the rich and an improving economy has reduced the deficit. Without the opportunity to cut a grand bargain on taxes and entitlement spending, however, there are fewer incentives to make a big deal on the debt ceiling and fewer opportunities to attract lawmakers who are reluctant to raise the politically unpopular debt in the first place. “When we get back to Washington, when Congress gets back to Washington, this is going to be a major debate — it’s the same debate we’ve been having for the last two years,” Obama said in Binghamton, N.Y., on Friday. But now, he said, deficits are coming down and “what we should really be thinking about is how do we grow an economy so that we’re creating a growing, thriving middle class, and we’re creating more ladders of opportunity for people who are willing to work hard to get in the middle class.” The budget year ends Sept. 30 and Congress and Obama need to find a way to continue paying for government operations or force a shutdown.

leaves WWII veteran dead
By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS Associated Press SPOKANE, Wash. — Police in Spokane, Wash., have arrested one of two teens suspected of fatally beating an 88-yearold veteran of World War II who had survived the battle for Okinawa. Police contend that two 16-year-old boys approached Delbert Belton in his car at random Wednesday night outside an Eagles Lodge as he was waiting for a friend. Belton was found by police with serious head injuries and died in the hospital Thursday. Belton’s death has struck a chord nationally and sparked outrage on social media. “He fought for this country,” said Belton’s sister, Alberta Tosh, on Friday. “Then he comes home and a couple of creeps kill him in the worst way.” Police Chief Frank Straub said there was no information

that the attack was motivated by anything other than robbery. Police were offering no details about the crime itself, including what was taken, if anything. “I don’t really care what their motive was,” Straub added. “We are not going to tolerate this.” Such random attacks are rare in Spokane, a city of 210,000 people in eastern Washington, Straub said. Police say the arrested teen was being held on charges of robbery and first degree murder. Straub identified the suspect still at large as 16-yearold Kenan D. Adams-Kinard. Even though he is a juvenile, his name and photo were released because he remains a danger to the community, Straub said. The Associated Press doesn’t usually name juvenile suspects, but is identifying the teen because of the manhunt. “We are asking the community’s assistance to locate him,” Straub said. “We are asking Mr. Kinard to surrender immediately.”
