Rain made Friday’s Canal Days Battle of the Business impossible to hold. Buckets set out for the event filled with water from Mother Nature instead of contestants. The event will be held at 6 p.m. today in front of The Delphos Herald. Eighteen teams will vie for the coveted traveling trophy in games of little skill. (Delphos Herald/ Nancy Spencer.
Students analyze nutrient use in Radish crops
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org FORT JENNINGS — Eighthgrade students in Jeff Jostpille’s environmental science class at Fort Jennings School have been collaborating on a group science fair project where radish seeds are planted into prepared soils with varying nutrients, monitored for growth and color and then weighed at harvest by sections to record biomass. After all of that, the root will be served on the salad bar in the school’s cafeteria. Students prepared for the experiment by sectioning off the raised beds and delineating six sections where differing nutrients — or no nutrients — will be used during the growing process. The soil sections include a control, with no added nutrients; fresh manure; bagged manure, compost, granular lawn fertilizer; and all-purpose plant fertilizer. Jostpille said the radish seeds were planted by both classes into the prepared beds close to two weeks ago. “The students planted seeds one seed at a time, eight inches apart and in rows spaced three inches apart,” Jostpille detailed. “Two times a week, each of the two classes come out and note plant growth.” In conjunction with documenting physical attributes of the plants, students perform soil testing on each of the soil sections. “After planting, we watered the beds right away,” Jostpille explained. “The water releases the nutrients into the soil. Nutrient levels are as high now as they are going to be.” Students test soil Nitrogen levels by mixing samples of the soil with water which creates a solution that is placed into a color comparator, which is a specially designed testing chamber for pH, Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potash (K). Each comparator has a film color chart and when the soil solution and reaction capsule are combined, the color of the water is compared to the color chart. For best results, students view the solution in daylight — not direct sunlight — to illuminate the solution. See RADISH, page 10
A little rain couldn’t stop the rock ‘n’ roll during Friday’s Canal Days. The Hipnotix took the stage in the Social Tent and kept the crowd going all night. Today’s events include water ball, corn hole, Basket Bingo, the Black Swamp Mustangs Car Show and more. (Delphos Herald/Nancy Spencer)

MIDDLE POINT — As the summer months and warm weather fade away, the Van-Del Drive-in Theater is rounding out its 2013 season and its first year operating with digital projectors. Drive-ins have to transition from 35-millimeter film projectors to the digital projectors as movie distributors threaten to stop sending the film reels, which is likely to happen next season. Owner of the Van-Del and Boyd Theatres Jim Boyd has already prepared all of his theaters for the digital switch and this season premiered the digital projectors at the Van-Del. “We managed to get it done this year and all three screens are using digital projectors,” Director of Operations for Boyd Theatres Ron Dunn said. “It was worth the upgrade and our customer base has upgraded as a result.” The Van-Del advertised at the beginning of the season that all three screens had transitioned to the digital projectors and Dunn said people have noticed the difference.

Today is Saturday, Sept. 21, the 264th day of 2013. There are 101 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 21, 1912, magician Harry Houdini first publicly performed his so-called Chinese Water Torture Cell trick at the Circus Busch in Berlin, escaping after being immersed upside-down in a vertical water tank, his ankles secured in a set of stocks which made up the tank lid, which was locked into place. On this date: In 1792, the French National Convention voted to abolish the monarchy. In 1893, one of America’s first horseless carriages was taken for a short test drive in Springfield, Mass., by Frank Duryea, who had designed the vehicle with his brother, Charles. In 1897, the New York Sun ran its famous editorial, written anonymously by Francis P. Church, which declared, “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.” In 1912, legendary cartoon animator Chuck Jones was born in Spokane, Wash. In 1937, “The Hobbit,” by J.R.R. Tolkien, was first published by George Allen & Unwin Ltd. of London. In 1938, a hurricane struck parts of New York and New England, causing widespread damage and claiming some 700 lives. In 1948, Milton Berle made his debut as permanent host of “The Texaco Star Theater” on NBC-TV. In 1962, “The Jack Paar Program,” a weekly, prime-time show that followed Paar’s stint on “The Tonight Show,” began a three-year run. In 1970, “NFL Monday Night Football” made its debut on ABCTV as the Cleveland Browns defeated the visiting New York Jets, 31-21.

Joseph Moenter struck by auto, killed
Jos. Moenter, 51, was fatally injured Friday noon when he was struck by an automobile in front of his home on Harding Highway, just east of Delphos. Mr. Moenter had been talking to Bert Metcalfe, rural mail carrier whose machine, headed west, was stopped on the north side of the road. He started for the house intending to bring out a crate of eggs for shipment, failed to see or hear the approaching car from the east and was struck and hurled to the pavement. His head struck the pavement and he sustained a double fracture of the skull and a dislocation of the neck. He remained in an unconscious condition from about 11:30 until death came at 1:15. The machine that struck him was a closed car driven by H.V. Evans, sales manager for the Rapid Bottle Washer company. Mr. Evans was accompanied by his wife and two children and by his mother, Mrs. Emily Z. Evans of Constine, Mich. He states that he was coming to Delphos and was at about 30 miles an hour at the time of the accident. Mr. Evans says that he saw Mr. Moenter standing with his foot on the running board of Mr. Metcalfe’s car and that he sounded his horn but the fact that the engine on Mr. Metcalfe’s machine was running probably prevented him from hearing it. He saw Mr. Moenter turn from the standing car as he was almost opposite. He swung farther to the left to leave Mr. Moenter plenty of room but Mr. Moenter was facing west and started across the road. Mr. Evans stated that he headed for the ditch and not knowing that Mr. Moenter had been struck until after the car came to a halt in the ditch at the south side of the road. Following the accident, Mr. Moenter was carried to his home and physicians were summoned, including his brother-in-law, Dr. J.F. George. Nothing could be done however. Jos. Moenter was born and reared just east of Delphos. He was born May 12, 1873. He was married to Miss Emma George in Delphos about seven years ago. No children were born to this union. He is survived by his wife and four brothers and one sister; John, east of Delphos; Henry, Ottawa, Fred, east of Delphos; Mrs. William Recker, Leipsic; and Louis, east of Delphos. No arrangements have yet been made for the funeral. Delphos Herald, Mar. 20, 1925 ————— Lindeman Opens Grain Elevator at Scotts Crossing
Ohio unemployment rate rises to match US number
LIMA (AP) — A deal to upgrade Abrams tanks for Saudi Arabia will be a big boost for the nation’s only tank-manufacturing plant, which just a year ago was on shaky footing amid numerous threats to its federal funding. The $188 million contract with Saudi Arabia calls for most of the work to be done at the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center in Lima. “It’s the result of months of effort,” said Lima Mayor David Berger, who leads a task force that has sought work for the plant. The contract was awarded to private defense contractor General Dynamics, which operates the governmentowned center. It’s one of several orders that were pursued to help keep the plant running, General Dynamics spokesman Rob Doolittle told The Lima News. The military has considered shutting down the plant for several years, citing deep spending cuts and a sufficient supply of battle tanks for the time being. A new defense spending plan finalized in January included enough funding to keep the plant operating through the next two years and maintain minimal production. About 800 workers refurbish the Abrams tanks. Debate last year over the potential cuts backed by the White House entered into the 2012 presidential campaign. Foreign military sales have been helping to keep jobs at the plant. It already has done work on an armored personnel carrier for the Israeli military and other work updating tanks for Saudi Arabia. U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, has been meeting with leaders from other countries and pitching the tank plant. “Foreign sales like these are a key piece to keeping the Abrams line ready for the U.S. Army’s future needs,” Portman said. “I remain concerned, though, that the Army has not developed a comprehensive plan to meet their foreign sales goals. I’ll continue to engage with our allies to find new partners to utilize this one-of-a-kind facility.”

The elevator which has been erected at Scotts Crossing by M.B. Lindeman of Delphos has been completed and will be open for business, Wednesday, September 3. The elevator was moved from Roselm, where Mr. Lindeman formerly conducted it, because of the discontinuance of the Findlay, Fort Wayne and Western railroad. At his new location, Mr. Lindeman will handle flow, feed and grain and also deal in coal. With the rich farming country around Scotts Crossing and the excellent transportation provided by the Pennsylvania, Mr. Lindeman will no doubt find his new venture a success.

They have purchased the business from A.J. Wilhelm and will operate as a billiard parlor and bowling alley. Mr. Kramer formerly resided in this city. He and Mr. Miller were engaged in a similar business in Ottoville. The interior of the business is now being redecorated and the equipment is being improved. The front is also to be repaired and repainted. The new owners are planning to make the place attractive and to conduct a high class recreation center. Delphos Herald, Aug. 9, 1935 ————— Gene Sheeter Plans Improvements Gene Sheeter, who is associated with his father in an automobile wrecking and auto parts business at Main and First streets, is planning further substantial improvements to those he has already made. He is planning to tear away the old residence property at the rear of the store building and to erect a new building there. The old building at the front will likely be torn away later and the new structure extended from the alley to Main street. He plans to make this a two-story building to be used entirely for the firm’s business. Mr. Sheeter has arranged a used car sales space along side the building.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s unemployment rate has increased slightly, matching the national rate for last month. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services says the seasonally adjusted jobless rate in August was 7.3 percent, up from 7.2 percent the previous month. The state rate has varied only slightly throughout this year and had been hovering below the U.S. rate. The national rate dropped to 7.3 percent in August, the lowest since 2008, because more people stopped looking for work and were no longer counted as unemployed. Ohio logged 419,000 unemployed workers in August, about 3,000 more than in July. Ohio’s nonfarm wage and salary employment decreased by 8,200 to just over 5.2 million for August. The biggest losses were in the leisure and hospitality sector and in educational and health services.
St. Rita’s celebrates National Falls Prevention Awareness Week
Information submitted LIMA — St. Rita’s Medical Center is proud to announce its celebration and observance of National Falls Prevention Awareness Week, Monday-Friday. Falls Prevention Awareness week is being observed as a way to educate St. Rita’s patients as well as the community that, while the risks of falling may increase as we grow older, falling is not a normal part of the aging process and can be prevented. The theme for 2013 is “Preventing Falls, One Step at a Time” and St. Rita’s is encouraging health care providers to screen older patients for their risk of falling. “According to the Ohio Department of Health, falls are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalization and death among Ohioans age 65 and older,” said Cindy Mefferd, Chief Quality Officer and Patient Safety Officer at St. Rita’s. “The good news is that falls are largely preventable.” “Health care providers can reduce their patients’ chances of falling and suffering serious injuries like hip fractures and traumatic brain damage,” Mefferd continued. “Research shows that assessing and addressing an individual’s fall risk factors, in addition to identifying and treating symptoms of chronic conditions, can reduce falls.” In observance of the National Falls Prevention Awareness initiative, St. Rita’s will promote falls prevention in the community by hosting an awareness event from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday in the lobby near
Delphos Herald, July 8, 1935 ————— Will Erect New Filling Station Richard Schaffer is planning to erect a new filling station on North Canal Street. It will be located just south of the Friemoth Brothers garage, on a lot which he bought from that firm sometime back. Materials are already on the lot. Delphos Herald, Mar. 28, 1925 ————— Four Farms Near Delphos Are Raided Four farm homes in this vicinity were searched Thursday morning in a raid conducted by two state officers and members of the Delphos police force. The places visited were the farms of Fritz Williams, near Landeck; Jos. Suever, near Southworth; G.K., three miles southeast of Delphos; and George Mosies, near Elida. Mash, ready for operating was found at the K. home, the officers stated. Nothing was found at any of the other three places. K. was placed under arrest and was brought to Delphos and was fined $300 and costs before Mayor Lea Sers court. Those who participated in the raid were State Officers John Powell and G.A. Mullen, of Columbus; Chief Thompson and Patrolmen Wagoner, Humphreys and Ditto. Delphos Herald, Mar. 26, 1925 ————— The Quality of Van Wert Booze in Question Chief of Police W.E. Jackson has received a letter, under the dateline of Ft. Wayne, signed by J.H. Allen and party. The letter complained that the author of the letter and the members of the party, while traveling from New York to California, by automobile, stopped in Van Wert and while here, purchased two quarts of whiskey at $7.00 per quart. The letter sets forth that the whiskey was poisonous and so sickened the members of the party that they were compelled to remain in Ft. Wayne five days. The author of the letter demands prosecution of the man who sold the liquor and warns that if no action is taken by Van Wert officers, the government secret servicemen will be set upon the case. Chief Jackson is investigating the matter from the angle of an arrest of the man who sold the whiskey, if the facts warrant, and also prosecution of the buyers. Delphos Herald, Mar. 21, 1925 ————— Makes a Profit of $90,000 Without Any
Cash Investment Wortham, Texas — John Riley stands to clean up $90,000 in 60 days on a “shoe-string” investment. He was attracted here by the recent big oil discovery and upon arrival found out that there was a freight blockade, due to the enormous increase of railroad traffic. The oil operators and other persons were clamoring for their shipments of derrick timbers, well equipment and general supplies. Riley had only a dollar in his pockets, but it occurred to him that he might turn the car blockage to his personal financial advantage. He quickly learned that the loaded cars were for the most part, tied up in the yards at Mexia, 10 miles south of the new oil field, and that the congestion was upon the sidings between Mexia and Wortham. The biggest operator in the field is the Humphreys-Boyd Oil Company. Riley went to the office of Col. W.E. Humphreys, head of the company. He refused to state his business to any but Colonel Humphreys himself. “Colonel, I have 15 big trucks. How much will you give me for their use?” “One hundred dollars a day each for 10 hours.” Riley closed the deal, hopped a train for Wichita Falls, hunted up 15 truck drivers, engaged them at $50 a day each for 10 hours and an additional driver for 10 hours night service and returned to Wortham and closed another deal for use of the trucks during 10 hours for the night at $100 each. The contract runs 60 days, giving him $1500 profit every 20 hours or $90,000, without any capital except his own ability to see an opportunity and seize it.

BY KIRK DOUGAL Times Bulletin Publisher email@example.com The inability to read at a functional level in today’s society leaves millions of people at economic and sociological disadvantages that are almost impossible to overcome. Look at some of these facts surrounding illiteracy: - The number of U.S. adults who cannot read equals 32 million, or 14 percent of the population. - The number of U.S. adults who read below the fifth grade level (functionally illiterate) equals 48 million, or 21 percent of the population. - In the U.S., 75 percent of the people who receive food stamps perform at the lowest two levels of literacy. This also relates to the fact that 90 percent of all high school

Read One Program promotes literacy
dropouts end up on welfare. - Two-thirds of U.S. students who cannot read proficiently by the fourth grade end up in jail or on welfare. - Over 70 percent of all U.S. prison inmates cannot read above the fourth grade level. Some states still use the reading levels of elementary school children to predict how much prison space will be needed in the future. - Almost 85 percent of juveniles in the U.S. court system are functionally illiterate. - Children born to illiterate parents are more likely to be illiterate. - Girls between the ages of 16 to 19 years old who live at or below the poverty line and have below average literacy skills are six times more likely to have a child out of wedlock than girls with average reading ability. - Low literacy rates lead directly to costs to the health insurance industry of $70 million per year. After a while, numbers can sometimes run together and become a mass of confusion. With that in mind, let’s look at a couple of the above figures and boil them down to everyday concepts. - If you are sitting at a table with four other adults, one of you cannot read above the fourth grade level. - According to the American Library Association, Prose Literacy is the ability to comprehend and use continuous text such as editorials, news articles, or instruction manuals. One out of seven U.S. adults cannot perform this function (14%). - Document Literacy is the ability to comprehend and use noncontinuous texts such as job applications, payroll forms, maps, or food and drug labels. One out of nine U.S. adults cannot perform this function (12%). - Quantitative Literacy is the ability to use and identify formulas within a text such as balancing a checkbook or calculating tax or a tip. Two out of nine U.S. adults cannot perform this function (22%). (*) The Read One Program began in 2011 in Van Wert County and has seen tremendous community growth in just two years. Started with the idea of stressing the importance of stamping out illiteracy for individuals and the community, it coincided with October being named National Book Month and was designed to bring attention to reading during the month in the hope the focus would remain on reading the rest of the year as well. The program calls for Allen County residents to read at least one book during the month and then to send The Herald the name of the book and the author. We will print in the first week of November the list of the books that were read during October (the name of the reader is not published). These can include fiction, non-fiction, Young Adult, or - just as importantly books read to children. Right now, four other newspapers and libraries across northwest Ohio have agreed to adopt the Read One Program. Detailed information will be in The Delphos Herald next week about how to participate in the Read One Program. We encourage everyone to take the time to show the importance of literacy by reading at least one book in October.

Working toward American energy independence
BY U.S. SENATOR ROB PORTMAN This week, the United States Senate began to debate a bill I introduced called the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act. This bill—the first major piece of energy legislation to come to the Senate floor in six years— is the next step in the all-of-the-above energy strategy we need to achieve energy independence. We were reminded again over the past few weeks why that energy independence is so important. The Middle East, where much of our energy comes from, is often a volatile and unstable region. Since our economy depends on cheap, reliable sources of energy, disruptions in places like Syria have consequences far beyond their borders, often leading directly to an increase in the price of oil, with effects throughout markets of every kind. We should not be held hostage to events happening a world away. Instead, we should find ways to produce more energy here at home, while practicing good stewardship of the resources we have. For instance, I have been a vocal proponent of domestic production. Technology has opened new areas to exploration, including the Marcellus and Utica Shale in Northeast and Eastern Ohio, which we should support. And I have advocated for common-sense, environmentally sound projects like the Keystone XL Pipeline. But I also believe there is room to improve in the area of energy efficiency. That’s where the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act (ESIC) comes in. By encouraging smart, common-sense techniques that will not increase federal spending, we can help manufacturers to cut costs and conserve energy while also forcing the largest energy user in the world—the United States federal government—to tighten its belt and save taxpayer dollars. The proposals contained in this bill are common-sense reforms that we’ve needed for a long time. ESIC doesn’t contain any mandates on the private sector. In fact, many of its proposals come as a direct result of conversations with people in the private sector about how we can help them become more energy efficient while also saving money that they can then reinvest in their businesses and communities. This legislation helps manufacturers. It reforms the Advanced Manufacturing Office by providing
WASHINGTON — About 30 years ago as a young reporter in Florida, I was assigned a series on gun control in response to gun violence, which had peaked in the U.S. in 1980. I began the series with profiles of three gun users, including a woman who had killed her would-be rapist, the owner of a sport shooting club and a convicted murderer on death row at the Florida State Prison in Starke. Most dramatic was the woman, who was attacked as she entered her apartment after work one evening. She had just moved in and boxes were stacked floor-to-ceiling, nary a broom nor a pot to use
Point of View
in self-defense. In her panic, she suddenly remembered the small derringer in her purse, which still hung over her shoulder. Already, the man had her pinned against the wall. Reaching into her bag, she grabbed the gun, pressed it to his side and, boom! He died instantly. To my question, she replied: “Hell, yes, I’d do it
again in a New York minute.” Or words to that effect. Most chilling was the murderer, whose name I no longer recall. I do remember that his fingertips were oddly flared and he pressed them together, expanding and contracting his hands like a bellows. No doubt aware that I was nervous, he seemed amused by my questions. “Sure,” he chuckled. “I’m all for gun control. Because that means you won’t have a gun. And I will always have a gun.” All of which is to say, the conversation we’re having today about how to avert the next act of gun violence is nothing new. Yet, we seem always to fall into the same

A little rain can’t keep Delphos down. It rained before and during the Toast on Thursday and still, the Social Tent was packed, the illusionist was great and fun was had by all. The sun rose on Friday and the day was beautiful until about 3 p.m. when the clouds and rain came. Boo, I say. Even though the Friday’s main event, the Battle of Businesses, was postponed to 6 p.m. today, the Social Tent was hoppin’ in the evening and the band was great. Today’s schedule is packed with activities for all ages, including a pancake and sausage breakfast, bingo, the sidewalk art contest, Basket Bingo, the bake sale and art show at the bank, the ArtFest exhibit, the pet parade (one of my personal favorites), kiddie tractor pull, water ball, disc golf, tractor show, cruise-in and more. Whew! That’s a lot. I usually take a breather Saturday while I gear up for Sunday’s events: the 5-K walk/ run, parade and the Big Ticket Drawing. Canal Days is a lot more than what you can do. It’s also about who you see. It’s great to find old friends and reminisce while enjoying a carnival atmosphere. New friends are also a possibility. However it turns out, supporting Canal Days is supporting your community. Checks to various groups and charities around October are the evidence of all the hard work it takes to bring an event of this size together. A lot of organizations count on the festival’s bottom line for theirs. So while Mother Nature was a little
stinker Thursday and Friday, today and Sunday promise to be perfect weather for a little fun, friends and celebrating Delphos. Canal Days has been brought back to its former glory and far surpassed it. It seems to be the place to be the third weekend in September. It is, after all, the last premier festival of the year right here in your front yard! There’s still time. Editor’s note: Many of you many have noticed a new message in the information underneath pictures. The Herald has a photo gallery of many local and area events at www.delphosherald.com. The newest additions are sports galleries. Miss the game or have a favorite player? The Toast to the City photos are already up and the rest of this weekend’s offerings will soon follow.

pro-con template when a fresh shooting occurs. Before we knew the name of the shooter who killed 12 civilians at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, social media were atwitter with the usual exclamations: More gun control! Guns don’t kill, people do! It is easy to become cynical when there’s nothing new to say and when, we know, nothing new will come of it. Gun control activists will push harder for tighter restrictions; Second Amendment champions will push back. The National Rifle Association will prevail. Hit repeat. Despite the redundancy
of our renditions, there are some differences in gun violence between today and more than three decades ago. Even though firearm deaths have decreased, the recent rash of spree killings — five incidents this year alone — justifies a heightened level of concern. Nearly 70 mass shootings have occurred since 1982, according to Mother Jones, 28 of them in just the past seven years. Half of the 12 deadliest mass shootings have occurred since 2007. Even so, for the sake of perspective, these represent a tiny fraction of total gun deaths. They’re more horrific, so we take greater notice. But they represent less than
1 percent of all gun deaths between 1980 and 2008, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Indeed, nearly two-thirds of gun deaths are suicides (19,392 of a total of 31,672 in the U.S. in 2010). In other words, the reflex to make tougher laws may be missing more important points. This isn’t to say we shouldn’t consider imposing restrictions on who owns guns, but as my guy in Starke suggested, there’s little comfort in forcing law-abiding citizens to submit to tighter controls knowing that criminals will not. See PARKER, page 10
clear guidance on its responsibilities, one of which is to help manufactures develop energy saving technology for their businesses. It instructs the Department of Energy to assist with onsite efficiency assessments for manufacturers. It facilitates the already existing efforts of companies around the country to implement cost-saving energy efficiency policies by streamlining the way government agencies in this arena work together. And it increases partnerships with national laboratories and energy service and technology providers to leverage private sector expertise towards energy efficiency goals. This legislation also establishes university-based Building Training and Assessment Centers, modeled after existing Industrial Assessment Centers located around the country, including one in Dayton, Ohio. These centers will train the next generation of workers in energy-efficient commercial building design and operation. Not only will these programs save resources, but they will help provide our students and unemployed workers with the skills they need to compete in the growing energy field. See ENERGY, page 10

Sunday will be a very important day in the history of stamp collecting. It is the day the US Postal Service and the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum will dedicate the William H. Gross Gallery. Mr. Gross, known to many investors as Mr. Bonds, donated the seed money ($12 million) to renovate and build the world’s largest stamp gallery. Over 20,000 items will be on display to showcase items never before seen by the public. You may recall one of my articles from a few years ago, that I had the opportunity to see hundreds of items that were stored in the underground vault at USPS Headquarters in Washington, D.C. I spent an entire day looking at uncut stamp sheets. Some were signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and also PMG James A. Farley. Franklin had a rule that the first run of stamps was to become part of his collection. The memory of that day still gives me chills. Meg Ausman, the postal historian at headquarters and 30 year postal veteran, told me just how privileged I was when she admitted that she had never been allowed access. During that same visit, I observed archivists preparing the Postmaster General’s (PMG) collection to be turned over to the Smithsonian. So what is the PMG’s collection? It has two very distinct parts. First are the stamps, metal dies, uncut sheets, postal stationery and printing drums of all the stamps that were commissioned since the 1860’s. Many of these items were produced and utilized at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP), which at one time was the primary source for the production of both stamps and US currency. The second part is the artwork that was produced that became the “die cast”, if you

will, for the stamps to come. In 2010 the task of cataloging and packaging this massive collection began and it took several months to complete that task. Shortly after we opened our museum in 1995, I had the privilege to go behind the scenes of the process of producing stamps. I was escorted under and between the printing drums of hand cut dies as millions of stamps rolled by. Each printing drum applied one color at a time onto this seemingly endless roll of stamp paper. I am sure you have seen movie footage or you may have toured the Eagle Print facility right here in Delphos where web presses utilize this same process to print newspapers. At BEP, just to the side of this massive operation, were large receptacles filled with printing mistakes that would be destroyed. Needless to say, I was searched thoroughly on my way in and on my way out. Those “mistakes” were more valuable than any stamp would become. Keep in mind that the cornerstone of Mr. Gross’s collection and the spark plug for the galleries is a plate block of the most famous stamp error in history – the inverted Jenny. How valuable did this one sheet of stamp mistakes become? In 2005, a block of four stamps sold for $2.7 million and in 2007, a single stamp sold for $977,000. Not bad for an initial investment of 24 cents. Sorry, you won’t find any of these in our collection at the museum but you will find thousands upon thousands of stamps on display. In my next article I will tell you more about the inverted Jenny and the grand opening ceremonies that will be taking place including the Medal of Honor presentation and the first day issue of the new $2 inverted Jenny stamp. Just a quick note: You can
go online at USPS.com to reserve one of the 5,000 souvenir stamp mint sets of the new stamp. They will only be sold until Oct. 15. That’s just three weeks and can you imagine only 5,000 will be produced. The set includes: — One mint sheet and one cancelled sheet of the 2013 Stamp Collecting: Inverted Jenny stamps; — Proofs that show each intaglio color in isolation an authentic section of the die wipe used during the 2013 press run — Sleeves for preserving the proofs and stamps; and — A 48-page book that tells the story of the 1918 misprint and the incredible printing and design challenges involved in recreating the stamp in 2013. In line with the concept that stamps are miniature art pieces, the Museum of Postal History will be holding an art auction at 3 p.m. Nov. 3 in the upstairs gallery. Your $10 donation goes toward the free wine and hors d’oeuvres and the opportunity to add some fine art and sports memorabilia to your home or office. Save the date and you can purchase your ticket at the Museum this weekend during Canal Days. Be sure to stop in. We will be open from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 3-6 p.m. on Sunday following the parade. Our normal hours of 1-3 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday will resume next week.

Cavaliers dismantle Blue Jays in MAC football
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer email@example.com DELPHOS — Coldwater scored on the second play from scrimmage in a steady rain Friday night and never looked back as they dismantled host St. John’s 41-6 in Midwest Athletic Conference action. “They completely dominated us in every facet of the game both physically and mentally,” a terse St. John’s head coach Todd Schulte said. The Cavaliers (3-1, 2-0 MAC) did indeed dominate the proceedings, rolling up 422 yards of offense: 288 yards rushing (on 30 totes) and 134 passing (10-of-14 by Brody Hoying). The Blue Jays (1-3, 1-1 MAC) could only amass 167 yards, 152 on the ground. Hoying did it with his legs on the first possession, though. He returned the opening kickoff 23 yards to the Cavalier 33. Mitch Schoenherr (10 rushes, 44 yards) ran for four and at the 37, Hoying — in the Cavaliers’ traditional 4-wide shotgun offense — ran a keeper over the right side. He showed great patience to the corner and once he got there, he was gone down the sideline. Matt Kramer Keyed by a block from senior Austin Schulte (62). senior fullback Luke made it 7-0 just 50 ticks into the matchup.

The Herald — 7
A couple of bums had great weeks in week 2 of these here Picks: regular Bob Weber was an outstanding 11-1 (5-1 in the colleges, 6-0 in the pros — does he KNOW something I don’t???) — moving his mark to 17-7 (8-4 and 9-3) — and guest picker Brian Bassett at 8-4 (3-3, 5-1). The rest of us peons (myself, regular Dave Boninsegna and second GP Charlie Warnimont went 7-5 and all the same way: 3-3 in college and 4-2 in the pros. My mark is now 12-12 (5-7, 7-5) and Boninsegna is 10-14 (4-8, 6-6). The GPs are now a combined 26-21 (10-13, 16-8). The two new GPs are Dave Ditto and Frank German, a sometime correspondent for The Herald. JIM METCALFE COLLEGE STANFORD: Sun Devils won’t get home cooking at the end. The Cardinal won’t need it. N O T R E DAME: Fighting Irish lucked out last week and they know it. ND defense too strong for Spartans, especially in South Bend. CINCINNATI: Bearcats favored by tons. I thought this might be better matchup but who am I to doubt the oddsmakers? WEST VIRGINIA: Terrapins have struggled lately. Mountaineers get it done in College Park. GEORGE TECH: Defending the triple option attack isn’t easy to pick up in a week, especially when you don’t have the premier athletes across the board. TOLEDO: Should be a good one in Ypsilanti. Going with the Rockets. PRO: ATLANTA: Dolphins will find out if they are for real. Pick here says … Not quite yet. NEW ENGLAND: With NE’s woes on offense, everyone forgets the Patriots defense is pretty good. WASHINGTON: Shanahan wakes up and unleashes the REAL RGIII. HOUSTON: They gave Ravens QB Joe Flacco oodles of cash but in process, they allowed some other good players to get away. SAN DIEGO: Chargers can score. All they have to do is defend just enough. CHICAGO: Steelers struggle to score. Bears have some nice weapons. Still, should be a tight one. DAVE BONINSEGNA Stanford: The Cardinalo are looking to start 3-0 in four straight years for the first time in the modern football era; they should have no problem with the Sun Devils. Notre Dame: The Irish are facing the “other” team from up north this week after a close one a week ago. I am going to take the Irish to rebound and get a win. Cincinnati: Miami is just plain awful; the Bearcats get another big win. West Virginia: WVU is riding a 7-game winning streak in series. I’ll take the Mountaineers to increase their dominance. Georgia Tech: The Yellow Jackets lit up the Tar Hills last year in a 68-50 victory. The home team should still come away with the win but don’t look for another 118-point game. Toledo: Central Michigan is terrible on defense. The Rockets should take flight for their second win of the season. NFL: Miami: The Dolphins are seeking their best start in more than a decade. This is a different Miami team; I am giving them the edge. New England: New England has won its first two games by a total of five points while Tampa Bay has lost its two by a total of three. I think New England has the weapons to get a sizeable victory. Detroit: Robert Griffin III has been less than stellar in the Redskins first two games, while the Lions are not the Detroit team of old. I like their chances against Washington. Houston: Houston has needed second-half rallies to win both of its games. Ravens RB Ray Rice left last Sunday’s 14-6 win over Cleveland.; I am liking the way Houston is playing. San Diego: Phillip Rivers is undefeated against the Titans. I am going to go with it and see the Chargers make it number 10 against Tennessee. Chicago at Pittsburgh: The Steelers are looking to avoid their first 0-3 start since 2000 and prevent the visiting Bears from opening 3-0 for the second time in four years Sunday night. They will find a way to win against the Bears..just because. BOB WEBER STANFORD – The Cardinal have a massive O-Line which assists the running game to average over 200 yards per game. They will keep two streaks going, having won 10 straight games and 10 in a row at home. NOTRE DAME – I really like Spartans’ head coach Mark Dantonio Anyone else that would like to join the ranks of GPs, all you 13,000 (keeps growing every week!!), e-mail your name to me at — firstname.lastname@example.org. Here are the Games: College: Arizona State at Stanford; Michigan State at Notre Dame; Cincinnati at Miami (Ohio); West Virginia at Maryland; North Carolina at Georgia Tech; Toledo at Central Michigan. NFL: Atlanta at Miami; Tampa Bay at New England; Detroit at Washington; Houston at Baltimore; San Diego at Tennessee; Chicago at Pittsburgh. and local QB standout Tyler O’Connor, but I’m going with “Touchdown Jesus” and the Irish. CINCINNATI – The Bearcats owe me one after their horrible performance against Illinois. They didn’t miss a beat last week even with backup QB Brednon Kay starting for injured QB Munchie Legaux. MARYLAND – Not my most comfortable pick of the week; however, feel positive that the Terps will be able to beat the Mountaineers behind the C.J. Brown-Stefon Diggs combination. GEORGIA TECH – I look for Georgia Tech’s high scoring offense to outmatch the Tar Heel’s defense in this one. TOLEDO – Going with the Rockets in a battle that may feature two freshmen QBs. Losing senior QB Terrance Owens for the game worries me but I feel the Rockets offense will still be too much. ATLANTA – The Falcons are loaded on offense even without Steven Jackson. NEW ENGLAND – Tampa Bay is a mess and the last time I checked the Patriots still had future Hall-of-Famer Tom Brady playing QB and Head Coach Bill Belichek roaming the sidelines. WASHINGTON – Robert Griffin III and the Redskins will win this mustwin game. BALTIMORE – Going with the Ravens but very concerned with the pick, especially if RB Ray Rice can’t play. SAN DIEGO – Phillip Rivers vs. Jake Locker – going with the veteran Rivers. BEARS – I would love to get in good graces with Mrs. Weber at home by going with her beloved Steelers but I must go with the Bears simply because the Steelers offense has only scored 19 points. FRANK GERMAN Stanford: I have to go with Stanford. They are the better team overall. Michigan State: I would like to pick Notre Dame but until they can show the defense that they had last year, I just can’t. Cincinnati: The instate game. I have to go with Cincinnati on this one; they just have to much for Miami to handle. West Virginia: I will have to go with West Virginia; I just think they’re just a little bit better in the long run. Georgia Tech: Well I have been down this road before and this is probably the wrong pick but a friend of my grandfather played for Georgia Tech, so I go with them. Jim will go nuts if Tech wins this on how I picked them go Tech (Editor’s Note: No problems here!!!). Toledo: I have to go with Toledo; just a little bit better than Central. NFL Atlanta: Don’t even have to think about this one; the Falcons. The question is by how much. Tampa Bay: I am going with the Buccaneers since the snow has not flown at Foxboro yet. Washington: This game might be a toss-up but I have to go with the home team with Alfred Morris on my fantasy team. Houston: I have to go with the Texans on this. I think Baltimore has dropped a little on defense and Houston offense will take advantage. San Diego: I go with the Chargers because the Titans are still trying to decide their identity yet. Chicago: I have to go with DA BEARS. The Steelers have some real problems to fix. ——— DAVE DITTO STANFORD - Assistance from the officiatnig crew will not be enough for the Sun Devils this week. NOTRE DAME - ND will bounce back from last week’s poor performance. CINCINNATI - The Bearcats can put up the points with ease. MARYLAND - The Terps pass/run QB will be a tough one to handle. GEORGIA TECH - The Yellow Jackets have a stingy defense. CENTRAL MICHIGAN - Close matchup but the Rockets defense will falter. ATLANTA - Matt Ryan will be the difference in this bout. NEW ENGLAND - Tom Brady is a UofM man … enough said. DETROIT - A big toss up, so I flipped a coin (EN: Two-headed?). HOUSTON - All stats point to the Texans. SAN DIEGO - The Lightning Bolts have Phillip Rivers. CHICAGO - A tough call for a Steelers’ fan.

Associated Press Reds 6, Pirates 5, 10 innings. PITTSBURGH — Joey Votto homered off Kyle Farnsworth in the 10th inning and the Cincinnati Reds edged Pittsburgh 6-5 Friday night to pull even with the Pirates for the top wild-card spot in the National League. Cincinnati pushed across three unearned runs in the ninth off Pittsburgh closer Mark Melancon to tie it and Votto won it an inning later when his fly to left field reached the first row of seats for his 24th homer of the season. JJ Hoover (5-5) earned the win for the Reds, who have won four straight. Aroldis Chapman worked the 10th for his 38th save. Farnsworth (1-1) retired Brandon Phillips to start the 10th but leftfielder Starling Marte couldn’t quite grab Votto’s shot down the line and the Reds started a pivotal 3-game series with a stunning victory. The Pirates appeared firmly in control through eight innings. Francisco Liriano overwhelmed the Reds, allowing two runs on three hits, walking three and striking out seven. The left-hander needed only 94 pitches to record 24 outs but was pulled in the ninth for Melancon, who has been outstanding most of the season. Melancon sandwiched outs around a single by Ryan Ludwick before things started to unravel. Todd Frazier reached when shortstop Jordy Mercer threw a routine grounder into the stands, scoring Ludwick. Zach Cozart singled to put runners on the corners. Cincinnati rookie base-stealing specialist Billy Hamilton pinch-ran for Cozart and promptly swiped second, then raced home when Devin Mesoraco’s sharp grounder ping-ponged onto the grass in shallow left field. Votto took care of the rest as Cincinnati climbed out of third place in the heated NL Central race for the first time in three months. Indians 2, Astros 1, 6 1/2 innings CLEVELAND — Zach McAllister lasted five innings and the Cleveland Indians got two gift runs from Houston in a 2-1, rainshortened victory over the Astros on Friday night to remain near the top of the AL wild-card standings. The game was delayed for 1 hour, 9 minutes before the umpires decided to call it after 6 1/2 innings. The Indians, who entered the night trailing both Tampa Bay and Texas by one-half game for a wild-card spot, scored an unearned run in the second and fourth innings off Brett Oberholtzer (4-4).

The bright offensive possession for the Mustangs came to a screeching halt after a sack by Jordan McCann backed them up to the 46. Tyler Mox fielded the following punt at his own 8 yard line and sprinted up the right sideline. Due to excellent blocking by the Jefferson special teams players and a sharp cut across the field, he returned the punt all the way to the house. Place kicker Kurt Wollenhaupt added the extra point to increase the Wildcats’ advantage to 33-0 over Allen East and sealed the victory for Delphos. The Red and White entered their second string to finish out the game. The Jefferson JVs kept the Mustangs out of the end zone, finalizing the margin of victory for the ’Cats 33-0. “We pride ourselves in our defense. I give a great amount of credit to our defensive staff at getting our guys mentally focused and ready to play even in these conditions tonight,” said Jefferson coach Bub Lindeman, “Our defense is what is going to ultimately get us to where we need to be. Tonight, we met our pre-season goal of being 4-0 going into week five and we are going to enjoy it. We have a tough matchup next Friday against LCC and we are going to focus our attention on them come Monday.” Allen East travels to Crestview next Friday night to take on the Knights. The Wildcats play host to LCC next week at Stadium Park.
The teams then went to their junior varsity units. The Jays had a chance to score as freshman Jaret Jackson recovered a bad snap on the Coldwater 25 but the Jays could not covert a first down. The Cavaliers tacked on one more score: a 4-play, 78-yard drive. At the Jays’ 47, Kraig Schoenherr took a sweep off the left side, found the corner and was gone with 2:45 left. Kyle McKibben added the final tally. St. John’s visits Anna Friday.

In order to meet the ‘Respect the Game Challenge,’ schools must complete a comprehensive checklist that confirms the various sportsmanship, ethics and integrity programs within their school. Besides developing a well-planned, educational program on sportsmanship, the form reminds schools to develop a comprehensive student-athlete campaign; a coaches campaign; a student body, student support group, parents and fan campaign; and a public address announcers campaign. Schools that have met the challenge will receive a “Respect The Game” banner that can be displayed in a prominent area of the school. Meeting the ‘Respect The Game Challenge’ is the precursor to being considered for the Harold A. Meyer Award. That award, named in honor of the late OHSAA commissioner from 1969 to 1977, is presented to schools that demonstrate via a PowerPoint presentation they have completed an eight-part program that promotes sportsmanship, ethics and integrity in their schools and communities. The applications and presentations were judged by students from Ohio Dominican University, in collaboration with the OHSAA staff. First year winners receive a banner to hang in a prominent area of their school. Schools that had previously received the award were presented with the banner the first year they won and subsequently receive the numerals corresponding to the year(s) the award has been earned. The Meyer Award has been presented every year since 1992 and
By Brittany Roth Sports information assistant COLUMBUS - The Bluffton Beavers traveled to Columbus for the first day of the OAC/HCAC Volleyball Challenge. They opened with a match against Muskingum. Muskingum’s scrappy defense wore out Bluffton and the Beavers fell in 3; 25-22, 25-21, and 26-24. The offense was led by Kendra Parmenter (Grove City) with 10 kills and Brooke Ruffer (Stryker) with 29 assists. Seniors Hailey Phillips (Malinta/ Patrick Henry) and Lindsay Krohn (Marysville, Ind./New Washington) controlled the defense with 13 and 11 digs, respectively. At 6 p.m., the Beavers battled the host team, Capital, but lost in four sets (25-18, 26-24, 19-25, 25-23). Freshman Adrienne Shepard (Arlington) led Bluffton in kills with 12 while Jenny Brown (St. Marys/ Memorial) and Parmenter added 11 and 10 kills, respectively. Ruffer had 40 assists and three aces. MacKenzie McFarlin (Ashland) fired five aces to lead the Beavers on

the service line. Krohn and Phillips controlled the defense again with 12 and 10 digs, respectively. Bluffton will return to Capital on Saturday for matches at 9:30 a.m. (Baldwin Wallace) and 1:30 p.m (O.N.U.). ——— Bluffton men shut out by Calvin College By Kyle Stover Sports information assistant BLUFFTON, Ohio - The Bluffton University men’s soccer team fell in a non-conference matchup with Calvin College 5-0 on Friday. The Beavers could get anything going on offense while the Knights thrived during a match that was plagued by a 2-hour thunder delay and heavy rain throughout. Bluffton fell to 0-6 on the year, while Calvin improved to 2-3. The Beavers will be back in action on Monday when they take to the road for a match at Oberlin College. That contest under the lights is slated to begin at 7:30 p.m.

Brandon Hernandez led the Cougars’ effort with an 82, while Adam Jurczyk finished with an 89. Alex Miller had a 98 and Justin Price a 102 to round out the top four Van Wert golfers. Nick Etter finished the day with a 106 and Jacob Covey had a 110. “I thought Brandon Hernandez played well shooting an 82 to finish in the top 15 golfers in the tournament. That was a good score for him, close to where he was at this time last year,” Hood said. “It was probably his best WBL tournament score he has had in three tries.
“Jacob Covey is first-year guy varsity guy and he was able to drop his score. He was in the 40’s on the front nine after a tough back nine. Those are kind of the little things you need to celebrate. Alex Miller played some pretty good golf in stretches and Adam Jurczyk played well on the back nine here as well. It’s the kind of year where you need to celebrate small successes and learn and grow from them going into the sectional tournament.” Bath won the tournament as they were led by Brady Garver with a 77 and Evan Hall with a 79. Spencer Stubbs finished with an 81 and Eric Jordan an 85.
St. Marys’ Carter Bowman and Kenton’s Britton Hensel shot the low rounds of the day as both had a 72. Bowman was named the WBL Player of the Year for his solid play throughout the year, while Bath coach Doug Davis was the Coach of the Year as the Wildcats not only won the tournament, but the regular season title as well. *** Team Scores 1.

lifestyle. A celebration will lead to love and romance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Proceed with caution. Your emotions will be difficult to control, and someone is likely to push you into an unwanted dispute if you aren’t careful. Change may be necessary. COPYRIGHT 2013 United Feature Syndicate, Inc. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2013 Everything you’ve experienced will contribute to how far you go in the year ahead. Focus on making money at your work and through investments. Don’t give in to bullying when it comes to something extravagant. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Keep life simple and avoid over-the-top expenses or responsibilities that will hinder the ability to take care of your needs. Don’t be reluctant to do what’s best for you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Do whatever it takes to improve your living space. Any projects that can enhance the way you look and feel will help you project a better image. Choose good will over anger. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A day trip that offers adventure or new experiences could prove advantageous. Let your free spirit take over, and be on the lookout for opportunity. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t be shy, and make sure you loudly express your reasons for the decisions you make. Have confidence and show your leadership ability in a work situation, and you’ll gain the right followers. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Too much self-criticism can be debilitating. Look at your positive qualities and work at perfecting the things you enjoy most and do best. If you direct your focus correctly, success will follow. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -You’ve got what it takes to make a difference. Use your skills and offer people help and suggestions, and you will make an impression that will lead to greater prosperity and stability. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t allow personal problems to stand between you and your goals. Step outside your situation and establish what you need to do to excel. You need to plan your moves carefully to solidify your position. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Be aware of what’s going on around you before you take any irrevocable steps. Sticking to rules and regulations will protect you from dubious encounters. Educate yourself and investigate matters before you make a pledge. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Play around with ideas and options that could improve your living space. Joining new groups will lead to valuable networking opportunities. An open, receptive attitude will lead to good fortune. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Do your own thing. Don’t expect everyone to agree with you or help you. Letting go could be the smartest move you’ll make. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Offer suggestions to people seeking help, but don’t take on responsibilities that don’t belong to you. Emotionally charged situations will turn into a battle if you aren’t diplomatic. A change will do you good. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Focus on participation today, be it in your community or in your career. Becoming more involved in a cause or group will lead to new friends and lasting relationships.

HI AND LOIS
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2013 Revisit the past and use the lessons you’ve learned to make a positive move in the year ahead. Secure your position by taking charge. The way you budget and negotiate will make a huge difference to the outcome of your pursuits this year. An innovative approach will ensure success. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Look at the fine print and check past records, and you will discover exactly what you need to know to make a difference. Love will bring you greater happiness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Much that unfolds during this cycle of shifting trends will be due to the way you have handled your personal dealings. Don’t overreact when what’s required is honesty and practicality. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Let your emotions flow and your imagination take over. How you present yourself to others will be especially vital. Push yourself to achieve positive, fulfilling results. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -Progressive action could lead to many different outcomes. It will improve your personal situation, but it may cost you a friendship. Weigh the consequences carefully before you leap forward. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can solidify a deal or develop a better working relationship with someone you love as long as you aren’t pushy. Compromise and looking out for the other guy will be crucial to your success. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Talk over your current position and the way you would like to see things unfold. Don’t make concessions to avoid controversy. Put whatever isn’t working behind you so you can move forward. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Take on a challenge and react to change as it happens. Going with the current will help you get the most return with the least work. A personal involvement appears to be improving. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You may have trouble making up your mind when it comes to certain relationships, but your heart will lead you in the right direction if you listen to it. A misunderstanding can cost you emotionally. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don’t fall for it if someone tries to coerce you into an argument.

BlackBerry slashes jobs in face of $1B 2Q loss
TORONTO (AP) — It was once so addictive it inspired the nickname “CrackBerry.” President Barack Obama confessed to being among the millions of devotees who couldn’t bear to stop tapping feverishly away on its tiny keyboard. Madonna once said she slept with hers under her pillow. Then came the iPhone. Users newly addicted to Facebook and photo-sharing and Angry Birds started flirting with the opposition. And as more smartphones flooded the market with their supersize Samsung screens and thousands of apps, the BlackBerry failed to keep up with the flash. This year’s launch of BlackBerry 10, its revamped operating system, and fancier new devices — the touchscreen Z10 and Q10 for keyboard loyalists — was supposed to rejuvenate the brand and lure customers. But the much-delayed phones have failed to turn the company around. At their peak in the fall of 2009, BlackBerry’s smartphones enjoyed global market share of over 20 percent, says Mike Walkley, an analyst with Canaccord Genuity. Their piece of the pie has since evaporated to just 1.5 percent. Now the company says it will lay off 4,500 employees, or 40 percent of its global workforce, as it tries to slash costs by 50 percent and shift its focus back to competing mainly for the business customers most loyal to its brand. A week earlier than expected, BlackBerry surprised the market by reporting Friday that it lost nearly $1 billion in the second quarter. It’s booking over $900 million in charges to write down the value of its glut of unsold smartphones.

Per the student’s nutrient testing chart, the nitrogen level of three soils containing fresh manure, granular lawn fertilizer and compost show that after two weeks, the nitrogen has been depleted from both the fresh manure and compost sections and is sufficient in the granular fertilizer section, which is growing the fewest and weakest looking plants of the six sections. Per the student’s observations of how many plants are growing in each row, color and height, the radish plants growing in the fresh manure are outperforming all other crops. In addition, each class compares their own plantings with the other plantings. In general, the students enjoy the land lab and the experiment they are working on. They like the hands-on

“Lots of people say the image is clearer and not as wavy as before,” Dunn said. The first drive-in theater was created 80 years ago in 1933. Drive-ins hit their peak in 1958 with 4,063 in the United States. Now, only about 360 drive-ins exist. Some drive-ins fear going out of business if they do not make the upgrade to digital because they will not have the equipment needed to continue once the movie distributors stop sending the 35-millimeter film reels. The cost of the digital projectors, however, makes that upgrade difficult for the mom-andpop drive-ins. “Some movie companies are letting theaters buy projectors through them on credit,” Dunn said. The theaters would pay off the credit in five years by having to charge their customers more, Dunn explained. “From the mom-and-pop side of the drive-in business, it’s not all about money and charging customers more on ticket prices is not always the best option,” Dunn said. Boyd, who owns Van Wert Cinemas and Bryan Theatres as well as Van-Del, started preparing for the switch to digital about three years ago. “Mr. Boyd had saved up money and had

This legislation will save taxpayers money. It makes the largest energy user in the world—the United States federal government— practice what it preaches by requiring it to adopt energy saving techniques that make its operations more efficient and less wasteful. This bill directs DOE to issue recommendations that employ energy efficiency on everything from computer hardware to operation and maintenance processes, energy efficiency software, and power management tools. It also takes the common-sense step of allowing the General Services Administration to update building designs to meet efficiency standards that have been developed since those designs were finalized. The government has been looking for places to tighten its belt; energy efficiency is a good place to start.
Energy legislation can sometimes be controversial, as it can include provisions that hurt employers and restrict economic growth. This energy bill is different. This is a bill that helps to create jobs, not destroy them. It is a bill that is supported by more than 260 businesses, associations and advocacy groups, including the National Association of Manufacturers, the Sierra Club, the Alliance to Save Energy, and the United States Chamber of Commerce. According to a recent study of our legislation, by 2030, ESIC will save consumers $13.7 billion a year in reduced energy costs by 2030. All this adds up to a piece of legislation that Americans across the spectrum can support. This bill makes good environmental sense. It makes good energy sense. And it makes good economic sense, too. I look forward to seeing it become law. Ohio 66 in the city of Delphos will close for five days Sept 23 for a railroad crossing repair. Traffic detoured onto Ohio 697, Ohio 116 and Ohio 81 back to Ohio 66. Putnam County Ohio 65 at Road L-10 south of the village of Ottawa will be restricted at times through the work zone in the upcoming weeks for removal of pavement at the intersection. The work coincides with a project being performed by CSX Railroad which will eliminate the railroad crossing at this location. U.S. 224 a half mile west of the village of Kalida to the CSX railroad in the village of Ottawa will be restricted to one lane through the work zone for pavement repair and resurfacing. Ohio 108 south of Miller City to just north of Miller City will be restricted to one lane through the work zone for pavement repair and resurfacing. Ohio 694 from the Glandorf corporation limit to just north of Glandorf will be restricted to one lane through the work zone for pavement repair and resurfacing.

started looking for used projectors which he refurbished,” Dunn said. The process of finding used digital projectors for sale took a lot of patience and waiting, he said. “Once there would be one on sale we had to get them right on the spot,” Dunn said. “I even drove to New Jersey to get one for the Bryan theater.” After buying the expensive digital projectors, the drive-in theaters have to accommodate the projection booths for the new equipment and buy necessary software to play the movie using the new projectors. “We have heating and cooling in all our projection booths and we have to keep the temperature between 68 to 75 degree,” Dunn said. “We actually have one projector that if it gets over 82 degrees, it just shuts down.” The transition to digital has made the job of starting and playing the movie less labor intensive, he said, but when problems occur, it is always a $1,000 fix instead of a mechanical issues that came with the film projectors. “The Van-Del had an increase in numbers of customers this year since the digital projectors were installed,” Dunn said. Despite all the cost, he said digital does make a difference in the quality of the image and to keep the Van-Del operating, the switch to digital was necessary and worth it. ers) who act impulsively and seek attention (and revenge) in dramatic and public ways. That we have more such characters than we used to — or that they seem more inclined to act on their impulses — may have less to do with guns than with underlying cultural causes. No, I’m not singling out video games or family dissolution or any other single factor, though none should be excluded. If we don’t take a serious look at the environment that spawns these individuals, we’ll likely be having this same conversation another 30 years from now.

-The entrance ramp to I-75 northbound from Ohio117/309 is closed as of Aug. 29 for at least one month to allow for construction of the new northbound ramp and new northbound pavement on Interstate 75. Traffic on Ohio 117/309 eastbound wishing to access I-75 northbound will be directed to Ohio 117, Greely Chapel Road to Fourth Street back to I-75. Ohio 117/309 westbound will be directed to Lost Creek Boulevard, Ohio 117, Greely Chapel Road and Fourth Street back to I-75. Fourth Street Interchange — The southbound entrance and exit ramps at Fourth Street remain closed for reconstruction but are expected to be reopened by the end of the week. Traffic is detoured to the Ohio 65 interchange then north on Ohio 65 (St. Johns Road) to Fourth Street. Electronic message boards have been placed on I-75 advising motorists to use Ohio 65. Northbound ramps are open. Ohio 117/309 is two lanes in each direction without a center turn lane from just east of the interchange with I-75 to Bowman Road during a safety upgrade project which will reconstruct areas of the pavement and install a raised curb median in the center of the roadway. All traffic is currently traveling on the north side of the roadway while work takes place on the south. Only two lanes of traffic are maintained, one lane in each direction, from Willard Avenue (Speedway) to the west
of the I-75 interchange. This part of the project will be completed this fall. — Ohio 117 between Ohio 309 and Greely Chapel Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction at times for curb and gutter and driveway reconstruction over the next couple of weeks. Lane closures will occur as needed. — Pavement widening operations on the south side of Ohio 309 between Saratoga Avenue and Lost Creek Boulevard will cause frequent closures of the eastbound, right lane. The lane closures could also occur on Saturdays but will reopen at the end of the day. Ohio 81 from just west of Stewart Road to just west of Neubrecht Road east of Lima is one lane in each direction in the existing eastbound lanes for pavement reconstruction. All ramp movements are currently maintained at the interchange with I-75. Allen County Pavement repair will take place on I-75 at the following locations. Work will likely take place Tuesday through Thursday of the week and generally between the hours of 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Work is being performed by the Allen County ODOT maintenance garage: — I-75 northbound at the 120 mile marker (Breese Road) — I-75 northbound at the 135 mile marker (Ohio 696) — I-75 southbound at the 139 mile marker (between Bentley Road and Hillville Road)
As for the crazies who go on killing sprees, rules rarely apply. Thus, what we’re really fighting about in our national debate about guns is how to stop mentally ill people from wreaking havoc on society. And what are the causes that lead to the breakdowns that lead to the slaughter? No wonder we’d rather limit magazine sizes. Much more difficult to process and “fix” are the multitude of factors that lead a sick person to seek company in death. What we know about such people is that they tend to be loners and narcissists (low self-esteem, lacking in empathy, quick to take offense and blame oth-
Answers to Friday’s questions: The camel from Camel cigarettes was an Arabian dromedary named “Old Joe” that appeared in the Barnum & Bailey Circus at the turn of the century. At that time, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company was looking for an exotic name and concept to link with its new Oriental and Turkish blend cigarettes. On Oct. 21, 1913, Camel cigarettes were launched with the now-famous illustration of Old Joe on its wrapper. The BVD in men’s underwear stands for the company’s three founders – Bradley, Voohrees and Day. Today’s questions: Why did bottles of Dr. Pepper bear the numbers 10, 2 and 4?
