Delphos Optimist Club turns 25
The Optimist Creed Promise Yourself To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor nspencer@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — The Delphos Optimist Club is celebrating its 25th year this month. Chartered on Sept. 30, 1988, by the Lima Noon Optimists with 40-plus members, the club is still going strong with numerous projects that benefit Delphos youth. “That’s really our focus,” charter member Gary Levitt said. “Optimist International is a multinational organization that understands what’s really important in life beyond our families — what really matters — kids. They are our future. “When you have two very strong school systems, you have a lot of youth and a lot of talent. We want to bring that out. It’s our purpose. Optimists have always been a ‘Friend of the Youth’.” Ticking off a laundry list of the club’s activities, it’s easy to see that focus. The club hosts events like the Junior World of Golf Tournament; Punt, Pass and Kick; an annual Easter Egg Hunt with more

than 6,000 stuffed eggs; the Fourth of July Fishing Derby; volleyball tournament; Oratory Contest; Essay Contest; Santa Visitation; and more. To support youth achievement, the organization has formed the Optimist Scholarship Foundation, which gives away four $1,500 scholarships each year and gives monthly awards to students, including the “Optimist Student of the Month” and “Most Improved Student.” To foster community-minded youth, the club pays the local Boy Scout charter fee and sponsors two Junior Optimist Clubs to hopefully groom new members. Levitt said the club has been a positive influence in his life. “Being an Optimist is not a large commitment but I personally get a big return,” he said. “It’s a great group of people I consider among my friends and I can’t think of a better way to start a Friday morning than with the Optimists. The Optimist Creed may sound like ‘pie in the sky’ but I have recited it to myself a couple of time to lower my blood pressure.” See OPTIMIST, page 10

Village anticipates Auglaize St. reopening
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com OTTOVILLE — Ottoville Village Council received good news from Brian Goubeaux of Choice One Engineering, who explained that the seeding of the grass areas disturbed by the Auglaize Street construction will begin today and the new paving will be completed by Tuesday of next week. “The project is progressing well,” Goubeaux detailed at Thursday’s meeting. “There are a few driveways that need cutback and a chip out of a section of new curb which will be cut out and re-done.” Mayor Ron Miller said residents should be back in their driveways by Wednesday. Council also addressed a change order with regards to the non-performed work entailing rehab of sanitary lines, which reduced the cost of the project by almost $40,000. The change order also added the replacement and addition of curbing to the project to the tune of close to $14,000 and added five days to the completion date, which was originally scheduled for Oct. 5. Street Supervisor Barry Koester explained that the original cost of the 60 feet of curb was $11 a foot, which is now $14 a foot because of the labor intense process. “Add additional Geo-grid and a linear foot price on a curb that had to be hand formed,” Goubeaux explained. During last month’s meeting, Goubeaux addressed the fiveyear Capital Improvement Resolution which allows an Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) application to be filed by his company for the village. He and the council agreed that applying for Bendele Addition improvements, which may cost $500,000, and another smaller project — slip lining of sanitary sewers for $50,000-$75,000 — may be smaller projects approved by the commission. Since that time, Goubeaux has submitted the applications to OPWC for both projects. See VILLAGE, page 10

Feds direct $100M in grants to help broke Detroit
DETROIT (AP) — The U.S. government directed more than $100 million in grants Thursday to help bankrupt Detroit tear down vacant buildings and spur job growth but the help falls far short of the wider bailout some city leaders had sought. Gene Sperling, chief economic adviser to President Barack Obama, said the administration scrounged through the federal budget and found untapped money that “either had not flowed or had not gotten out or not directed to the top priorities for Detroit.” But considering the Motor City is at least $18 billion in debt, it will take a far

Today is Friday, Sept. 27, the 270th day of 2013. There are 95 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 27, 1991, President George H.W. Bush announced in a nationally broadcast address that he was eliminating all U.S. battlefield nuclear weapons and called on the Soviet Union to match the gesture. On this date: In 1540, Pope Paul III issued a papal bull establishing the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits, as a religious order. In 1779, John Adams was named by Congress to negotiate the Revolutionary War’s peace terms with Britain. In 1854, the first great disaster involving an Atlantic Ocean passenger vessel occurred when the steamship SS Arctic sank off Newfoundland; of the more than 400 people on board, only 86 survived. In 1928, the United States said it was recognizing the Nationalist Chinese government. In 1939, Warsaw, Poland, surrendered after weeks of resistance to invading forces from Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union during World War II. In 1941, on “Liberty Fleet Day,” the United States launched 14 rapidly built military cargo vessels, including the first Liberty ship, the SS Patrick Henry, which was personally launched by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in Baltimore. In 1942, Glenn Miller and his orchestra performed together for the last time, at the Central Theater in Passaic, N.J., prior to Miller’s entry into the Army. In 1954, “Tonight!” hosted by Steve Allen made its network debut on NBC-TV. In 1964, the government publicly released the report of the Warren Commission, which found that Lee Harvey Oswald had acted alone in assassinating President John F. Kennedy. In 1988, three days after placing first in the men’s 100meter dash at the Seoul (sohl) Summer Olympics, Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson left for home in disgrace, stripped of his gold medal by officials who said Johnson had used anabolic steroids. In 1991, the Senate Judiciary Committee deadlocked, 7-7, on the nomination of Clarence Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1994, more than 350 Republican congressional candidates gathered on the steps of the U.S. Capitol to sign the “Contract with America,” a 10-point platform they pledged to enact if voters sent a GOP majority to the House. In 2001, President George W. Bush asked the nation’s governors to post National Guard troops at airports as a first step toward federal control of airline security. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin urged Iran and North Korea to abandon suspected nuclear-weapons programs but disagreed over how to deal with both countries; Putin also declined at the end of a two-day summit at Camp David to pledge any postwar help for Iraq. Entertainer Donald O’Connor died in Calabasas, Calif., at age 78. Five years ago: China marked its first spacewalk as astronaut Zhai Zhigang floated outside the Shenzhou 7 for 13 minutes. One year ago: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, holding a diagram of a cartoon-like bomb, told the U.N. General Assembly that the world had only a matter of months to stop Iran before it could build a nuclear bomb. NFL referees returned to the field, after a tentative deal with the league ended a lockout; games had been marred by controversy, blown calls and confusion as substitute referees officiated during the first three weeks of the season.

STATE/LOCAL The Friends of Bear’s Mill presents 2013 Legendary Fall Open House
Information submitted GREENVILLE — The Friends of Bear’s Mill will hold its annual Legendary Fall Open House from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Oct. 5 and 6. The event will include free guided tours and grinding demonstrations by Master Miller Terry at noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. both days. Delicious foods such as our famous French Market 18-Bean Soup, brats and hotdogs from the grill, apple dumplings, caramel apples, pumpkin cookies and gourmet coffees will be offered. This event is free to the public. Donations are greatly appreciated. Visitors will be entertained with live music from 12:304:30 p.m. Saturday by Brian Keith Wallen and Ted Yoder. Brian is a rootsy blue-grass musician and Ted plays the hammered dulcimer. Drawing on his pop and rock-n-roll roots, Ted is able to create something never heard before: a dulcimer that doesn’t sound like a dulcimer “should.” Both Brian and Ted will be performing solo sets and a set together too. Blues, folk, rock and bluegrass will be represented throughout the day. Live music from 12:30-4:30 p.m. Sunday will feature Ron and Elaine Marshall, a husband and wife acoustic duo from Versailles. Both sing while Ron plays the guitar and Elaine helps out on light percussion. Trading off with Ron and Elaine will be “Nobody Special,” a group of three friends who used to play together in bands of years past. Percussionist Perry Walls is from Ansonia, guitarist Roger DeMange is from St. Henry and guitarist Ron Marshall from Versailles. Country and classic rock will be represented all day. Down by the old mill stream, John Bundy and Greg Adams will be set up along the millrace with their duck decoy carvings and rustic willow furniture. Both of these skilled Indiana artists will be demonstrating their individual crafts and answering

4 – The Herald

Pollsters have been asking Americans questions about God, sex and babies for a long time and the answers used to be pretty predicable. Early in the 20th century, it was easy to predict which flocks of believers would produce the most children -- with Mormons reporting the highest numbers, followed by Catholics, then Protestants and so forth as fertility rates declined. But things changed as the century rolled on and America became more pluralistic and, in elite zip codes, secular. After Woodstock and the Sexual Revolution, it was clear “what really mattered wasn’t what religion you claimed to be practicing, but the degree to which you actually practiced it -- especially whether or not you were in a pew week after week,” said journalist Jonathan A. Last, author of “What to Expect When No One’s Expecting.” These days, people who attend worship services once a week or more have a sharply different fertility rate from those who avoid religious sanctuaries. “It really doesn’t matter what kind of services we’re talking about -- Catholic, evangelical, Jewish, Mormon, whatever. What matters is whether you show up,” said Last. The bottom line: An activity that encourages people to get married sooner, stay married longer and have a higher rate of happiness

On Religion
while married will almost certainly produce more babies. “When it comes to people having what people today consider large families -- three or more children -- there are two Americas out there,” he said. The division is between those who actively practice a faith, especially a traditional form of faith, and those who do not. This is crucial information in an era in which declining birth rates affect debates about a wide array of hot-button cultural issues: from Social Security to national health care, and from immigration reform to the future of major religious groups. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that U.S. births appear to be leveling off, although the numbers continue to show some decline. While

birth rates edged up for women in their early 40s and throughout their 30s, rates kept falling for women in their 20s and among Latinas. A key factor, Last explained, is “aspirational fertility,” or the number of children that parents say they want to have. In the early 20th century, a clear majority of Americans favored having three or more children. Now, 66 percent of those who seldom or never attend worship services say zero, one or two kids is ideal, while 41 percent of those worshipping weekly desire three or more children. If a woman frequently attends worship services, it is much more likely she will have a larger family, if that is her goal. It’s hard to pin political or cultural labels on some of the behaviors that are inspiring so many people to avoid marriage, to marry later, to have fewer children or to have children later in life. At one end of the cultural spectrum is the 30-something male whose solo life remains focused on his Xbox. At the other end is the professional woman working 70-hour weeks while striving to rise in a major law firm, even as her biological clock ticks loudly. Of course, it also matters that children are expensive. In his book, Last examines a variety of expenses and career realities and concludes that it costs about $1.1 million to raise a single child, with home costs and college expenses higher in prime locations. When living in New

York City, San Francisco or Washington, D.C., having two children is “having a lot of children,” he said. “What’s countercultural in one city is normal in another.” The bottom line is that Americans who choose to have large families are almost certainly making “some kind of theological statement,” he said. “They are making countercultural decisions and people just don’t keep taking specific countercultural actions without having some kind of purpose, a larger reason for what they are doing. ... “Think of it this way. At some point, you have to ask: ‘Am I the most important -- or even the only -- character that matters in the movie of my life?’ ... Parents just can’t think that way, and the more children you have, the less you can afford to think of yourself as the center of everything that happens in the world. ... That’s a very important lesson to learn about life.” (Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and leads the GetReligion.org project to study religion and the news.)

What does ‘healthy’ mean?
“Don’t stay up late. You need your sleep.”“If you don’t start eating better, you’ll never grow.”“Don’t do that — it’s bad for you!” Does it ever seem that most of the things you want to do are things that “aren’t good for you”? It isn’t always easy to do what’s healthy. If faced with a choice between a bacon burger and fries or a spinach and tofu salad for dinner, which would you pick? What if you had to choose between watching TV or going out for a run? Between doing something cool but risky or playing it safe? Maybe you’re starting to have more control over decisions that affect you — from what you eat to how you spend your time. As you become more independent, you also become more responsible for your choices. And when it comes to your health, the decisions you make can have lasting effects. All of us make everyday choices that affect our physical and emotional well-being, what we call our “health.” Some choices that are now made for you will be yours to make in the future. Others are in your hands already. How do you go about making good decisions concerning your health? Learning more about how your body works and what it needs to work well is a good way to start.
Throughout your study of health, watch your newspaper for articles on health issues. These may include articles on medical research, health-care laws, new treatments, etc. Keep your articles in a notebook or scrapbook. Which issues are most important in your community? State? In the United States? Worldwide? List as many health issues as you can think of from your reading of newspapers and magazines. As a class, pick five that affect people in your age group. Take a poll to see which issue most concerns people in your class.

Knights, Lady ‘Cats end in soccer draw
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com FORT JENNINGS — Both Jefferson and Crestview had moments Thursday afternoon where both of their coaches were extremely pleased. They also had times during their Northwest Conference girls soccer match where they didn’t. When the final gun sounded, the teams were locked in a 3-3 draw at Keith Hamel Memorial Field in Fort Jennings. “For some reason, we got off to a sluggish start; we didn’t play well at all the first half and I didn’t feel we played well overall,” Jefferson coach Josiah Stober said. “We didn’t do the things we’ve improved at so much over the season. We didn’t communicate well, we didn’t pass well; we were just sluggish.” Crestview coach Melissa Mefferd had a different perspective. “We started really well, getting that first goal. We came out aggressive,” Mefferd explained. “Unfortunately, we can’t seem to maintain it the whole match; that has been our problem the last six matches. We’ve focused on trying to play for 80 minutes and, outside of a spurt in the second half, I felt we did that. When we got down 3-2, I’m proud of the girls for fighting back. We could have gotten down mentally and didn’t.” The first eight minutes, neither squad could get a good look at the goal. That changed at 31:28 when Crestview (1-10-2, 1-1-2 NWC) got the first shot and made it pay off. Keyed by a lead pass from junior Kylee Gent, freshman Kylee Agler made it work as she got a good run down the right side, juked a defender, veered toward the goal and with junior netminder Kayleigh O’Conner (4 saves vs. 8 shots on-goal) out to try and cut off the angle, fired a 16-yarder into the left side of the twine for a 1-0 edge. Jefferson’s first open look came at 21:54 when junior Kylee Haehn turned and fired a 12-yarder from the left wing but the shot hit a defender and Crestview sophomore goalkeeper Alyssa Walter (9 saves, 14 shots) gobbled the orb up. At 13:07, Haehn again got open from 16-yarder but the shot was deflected over the top by Walter. At 9:50, freshman Addison Schimmoeller’s 18-yarder was deflected out of bounds by a defender. Crestview made it 2-0 at 5:55. Senior Brooke Bowen made a great run from midfield down the middle, veering toward the left post as she neared the goal. Again, with O’Conner trying to cut off the angle, the senior fired a 12-yarder to the right side of the cords.

Jefferson freshman Arianna Knebel and Crestview senior Brooke Bowen race to get possession of the ball during girls soccer action Thursday at Hamel Memorial Field. (Delphos Herald/Jim Metcalfe) Crestview learned a lesson about playing to the whistle at 2:26 and it cost them a goal. With a defender down in front of the net, Walter and her defenders stopped playing, expecting a whistle, but none was coming. Junior Adrie Miller fired a 16-yarder from the right wing inside the post for a 2-1 deficit. “I just told the girls about playing through that,” Mefferd added. “Our keeper is a compassionate girl and when her teammate went down, she went to help her. It’s just one of those things you have to learn; no matter your personal feelings, you have to remain focused and keep playing.” Bowen had the first opening of the second half but her 16-yarder on the right side of the 18-yard box hit the right post and bounced out of play. Jefferson (4-6-2, 2-0-1) then seemed to seize momentum and pressed forward with its attack. At 37:03, Walter had to make a diving save of a 1-touch 14-yarder by Haehn. Haehn was just wide right on a 16-yarder from the left wing at 25:10. The hosts had two prime chances within a couple of seconds of each other at the 24:20 mark: first, on a free kick just outside the box, Haehn’s 19-yarder was deflected by Walter to her left, with freshman Arianna Knebel there for a follow shot - this time, Walter got the stop. Walter made another deflection of an 18-yarder by Haehn at 15:45. The attack continued and the Red and White finally tied it at 2-2 with 15:27 showing; sophomore Logan Hamilton made an inside pass from the right side to Haehn, whose curling 20-yarder went over the top of Walter and into the net. At 10:06, the Wildcats made it 3-2. Off Haehn’s corner kick from the left side, Knebel got possession at the top of the box, turned and fired inside the right post. Crestview knotted it at 3 with 5:03 left. On an original run by Bowen, her 12-yarder was blocked by O’Conner but the ricochet came back to senior Desiree Hiday, whose middle 8-yarder found the left side of the net. The Lady Knights had the final chance on-goal as Bowen’s 18-yarder was knocked away by O’Conner. “The second half, we had a 10- to 15-minute spurt where we showed what we can do when we do the little things. We got more shots on-goal in that span than we did the rest of the match,” Stober added. “We just couldn’t connect on more shots. We passed the ball better, we moved quicker, we talked more. It took us a while to get into the match.” Crestview visits Van Wert at 11 a.m. Saturday. Jefferson visits Cory-Rawson at 5 p.m. Monday.

Fitch joins old hats Kalida and Ottoville in District golf

DEFIANCE — At this time last year Nick Fitch was playing football for Jefferson. A shoulder injury forced him off the football field and onto the golf course. Little did he know the move would be a good one as Fitch was one of four individual qualifiers to advance from the Division III sectional tournament at the Auglaize Golf Thursday. Team wise, Kalida and Ottoville are catching fire as they shot their best rounds of the season to finish one-two in the sectional. Tinora was the third team to advance from the sectional. Fitch, along with the Wildcats and Big Green, advance to the Division III district tournament in Bowling Green next Thursday at the Stone Ridge Golf Course. The district tournament starts at 8:30 a.m. Fitch was a physical player for the Jefferson football on the gridiron and had some of that same mentality when he moved to the golf course. But having played a full season of varsity golf, Fitch’s game has improved to the point where he shot an 83 Thursday to not only lead the Wildcat squad but sneak in as the third individual not on a qualifying team.

Lady ‘Dawg defense holds off Titans
By DAVE BONINSEGNA DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com GLANDORF — The Elida Lady Bulldogs soccer team was coming off an offensive explosion in a 8-1 win over Kenton. On Thursday night at Titan Field against Western Buckeye League foe Ottawa-Gladorf, the Lady Bulldogs let the defense do the work as they blanked the Titans 1-0. Lindsey Hall got the lone goal for the Bulldogs, while keeper Caitlyn Shroyer had a stellar performace in the net with seven saves in the first half and 10 in the second 40 minutes. “This is the best performace that we have seen by her (Shroyer); that was a big confidence-booster for her and a breakout game. If we can get more like that, it really puts us at the top; that is all that we can ask for,” Elida coach Brady Overholt stated. The Titans had the first attempt of the match but Abby Waddle was able to deflect the ball away and send it back towards the Elida offensive end of the pitch. Not long after, Hall knocked the ball past O-G netminder Megan Hoehn off of a corner

Information Submitted Panthers outlast Jeffcats in NWC volleyball PAULDING — Jefferson traveled to Paulding Thursday night and fell in a Northwest Conference marathon 25-19, 23-25, 25-23, 20-25, 15-11. The Wildcats’ record is now 5-11 and 0-5 in NWC. Wildcat senior Kamie Pulford led serving in going 21-of23 with five aces. Senior Katie Goergens had 14 kills and classmate Rileigh Stockwell had 12 killss. Senior Gabrielle Pimpas had six digs and junior Brooke Culp dished 30 assists. “We played well tonight. Our consistency has improved but we are struggling to finish close sets,” Jefferson coach Joy DeVelvis noted. “I’m happy to see that our girls didn’t fold after losing a close set and continued to fight and play hard. Brooke really worked hard and made a lot of great plays for us; she racked up 30 assists and she had nine saves! Her aggressiveness is a great asset to our team. She consistently sets the ball well, giving Rileigh and Katie the opportunity to gain so many kills.” See ROUND UP, page 7

kick with 31:13 showing on the scoreboard. “We got that one early and we were banged up tonight but after we got to 20 minutes, we just packed the box on defense. She (Hall) has scored eight or nine off the corners this year; she just got to the back side and put it in,” Overholt noted. The rest of the match can be summed up in two words: Caitlyn Shroyer. The senior made stop after stop and with the aid of defenders Waddle and Erika Stoodt, the Bulldogs were able to twart off the Titans attack. Elida dodged a bullet early in the second half when the hosts got a penalty kick off of a handling call inside the box. However, the Michelle Maag kick went high, keeping the score at 1-0. Midway into the second half, the home team had three consecutive corner kicks but were unable to capitalize. Shroyer gathered in five more saves, including a sliding one with 15:25 to go as the O-G offense continued to pound away with no results. The victory sends the Bulldogs to 8-4-1 on the season, while Ottawa-Glandorf drops its second in a row and falls 7-3-3. Elida hosts Fort Jennings for a noon-time start Saturday.

Minster ekes past LCC to grab sectional title
By JIM METCALFE Sports Editor jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com LIMA — Minster edged Lima Central Catholic 316-317 on a warm Thursday morning/afternoon to claim a Division III Sectional boys golf crown at Hawthorne Hills Country Club. Arlington was third at 323, followed by Parkway (340), New Bremen (342), Lincolnview (347), Fort Recovery (352), Marion Local and St. Henry (359), Spencerville (362), Lima Temple Christian (381), Waynesfield-Goshen (420), Perry (422) and New Knoxville (426). The Lancers were led by Logan C. Miller’s 81, followed by Joshah Rager (85), Derek Youtsey (87) and Justis Dowdy (94). “We started off playing well but then we struggled the rest of the day. We seemed a little tired as well and that hurt us,” Dowdy reflected. “Our short game let us down today: whether it was putts that lipped out, chip shots that were too short, missing very makeable putts from short distances or whatever, we didn’t do it well today. I also agree with every other coach that the greens were much different today than they were when we practiced Monday; they were slower earlier, like at our home course, Hickory Sticks.” Dowdy was still pleased with his team’s progress over the past year. “Last year at sectionals, I felt we’d be a better team this year than last year and we

Though Lima Central Catholic is no longer a member of the Northwest Conference, tonight’s showdown at Stadium Park with NWC front-runner Jefferson is still a big game for both clubs. The Wildcats (4-0, 3-0 NWC) are ranked second in Division VI, Region 20, while the Thunderbirds (3-1) are standing tied for 12th in that same region. In Anna, St. John’s is looking to turn things around against the Rockets in Midwest Athletic Conference action after a 1-3 start (0-2 MAC), while the Rockets enter at 2-2 overall. LCC AT JEFFERSON The Wildcats have answered some of the questions that head coach Bub Lindeman and his staff had at the start of 2013, especially up front on both sides of the pigskin. “Those were the two biggest areas of concern we had coming in: we only had one guy back on each line. Everyone knows the game is still won or lost up there,” Lindeman said. “That is still a work in progress but we have come a long way; we don’t have all the answers but we have a lot more than when we started. They have opened a lot of holes for Zavier (Buzard) in the running game and given Austin (Jettinghoff) good protection. We hang our hat on defense and the play of our front line has enabled us to continue to do that. “The biggest surprise of this year, though, has been the kids. They have bought into what we’re trying to do lock, stock and barrel. Our motto this season is ‘All In’ and they have done that. They have worked hard since the end of last season, during the winter, spring and summer, up til now. We have great leadership from our seniors in doing so.” They will need more of that tonight as the speedy Thunderbirds come calling. “Everyone knows what the hallmark of LCC is: great athleticism.

They can put more great athletes out there than most NWC teams can,” Lindeman added. “What we have to do is first, keep their skill athletes in front of us on offense. They will get some big plays but if we limit them by playing smart, sound, fundamental defense and keep it close to the end, we’ve done our jobs. They want to get off to a quick start and strike quickly, so weathering the early surge will be crucial for us. These games have become physical matchups but we have to try and not allow them to get going, so being physical will be even more important tonight.” ST. JOHN’S AT ANNA For Blue Jay coach Todd Schulte, there isn’t one thing you can really point to as the culprit in the team’s slow start. “If we knew what it was completely, we’d have fixed it by now. It isn’t for lack of effort,” he explained. “These kids do some good things and work really hard in practice but when we get into games, something doesn’t click. Whether it’s a lack of execution somewhere on offense or lining up wrong on defense, it’s something. We have not made things easier for ourselves this year with those kinds of mistakes. It’s more mental mistakes than physical. “Early on, it could be blamed on the overall starting varsity inexperience we had but it seems to keep happening.” That is why Schulte figures a quick start will be beneficial for his Blue Jays tonight at Anna. “We need something good to happen for us right away and get off quickly. That would definitely put us in a better frame of mind,” he added. “Where we were inexperienced at the start of the year, Anna had a lot of veterans back. They feature a solid tailback in Williamson — he leads the league in rushing. He isn’t the fastest guy we’ve seen but he runs hard and people bounce off of him - he has great balance. They also have a returning senior quarterback that gives them an important threat in the passing game to complement their preferred running attack.” Both games kick off at 7:30 p.m.

Spencerville senior James Schaad tees off on No. 18 Thursday afternoon during Division III boys sectional golf action at Hawthorne Hills Country Club. (Delphos Herald/Jim Metcalfe) improved a lot,” Dowdy added. “The kids worked hard and got a lot better. We only lose one senior from today’s golfers — Logan — and I expect a lot more improvement for next

year. These kids worked yard to get better and I see the same this time around.” The Bearcats were led by Mitchell Youngpeter’s 84, Chance Campbell’s 85, James Schaad’s 90, Parker Campbell’s 103 and the 109 of Brian Wood. “We played about average today. I would gave liked if we had played better but it seemed that everybody struggled overall; the team scores were down,” Spencerville head man Mike Harmon noted. “We’ll probably miss second a couple of guys but a couple of shots. I think the pressure alone elevates the scores. Then you throw in the fact that the greens were faster today than we usually see at Hawthorne; the kids struggled to adjust to their speed.” Harmon realized that this was another stepping-stone for his overall young and inexperienced crew. “Two of our five guys here, today was their first time here; one of my freshman was shaking after his first tee shot. It’s the first time they teed off with 40 people watching, which adds to the nerves,” Harmon added. “We lost a lot of talented players from last year’s team. This year, James is our only senior. “What I saw positive today was the kids finally seemed to grasp how a positive attitude can make a huge difference. Our attitude today was as good as I’ve seen all year. They didn’t let a bad hole ruin the rest of the day. That was one of the lessons I was trying to get through to them all year.”

Panthers ‘net’ sweep of Lady Jays
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — The Midwest Athletic Conference is a powerful volleyball conference, with numerous state champions through the years. St. John’s saw that once again up close and personal Thursday night at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium, with Parkway being the rude guests in a 25-13, 25-16, 25-11 sweep. “Every matcjw e play, I see such improvement out of the girls. They are such a great group; they work hard, they maintain a great attitude and they get along so well,” Lady Blue Jay coach Carolyn Dammeyer said. “I play all 15 girls: two freshmen, five sophomores, five juniors and three seniors; and we are getting valuable experience at the varsity level. That is what we lacked at the beginning of the year.” The Lady Panthers (12-7, 2-4 MAC), who, according to head coach Jeff Marbaugh, have struggled with consistency, particularly in the mental approach. They found that this night, maintaining that focus through all three sets. They made it difficult for the rebuilding Lady Blue Jays (3-13, 0-6 MAC) to get on any run all night, with the best the Blue and Gold could do was a couple of points here and there. “We found what we’ve been searching for all season tonight; we haven’t always been able to do that this year. I was pleased that this was the most consistent we’ve been all season,” Marbaugh added. “We kept attacking, digging, getting touches on their attacks, serving well, everything. We showed what we’re capable of doing when we stay focused on our game plan and what we’re trying to get done.” Leading the way for the home team were the likes of junior Bekah Fischer (4 kills, 2 blocks), freshman Jessica Geise (4 kills, 2 blocks), senior Brittney Claypool (7 kills), senior Alicia Buettner

(4 kills), sophomore Madelyn Buettner (4 kills), junior Haleigh DeWyer (11 digs), junior Colleen Schulte (10 assists) and freshman Maya Gerker (8 assists). “We play such a tough schedule, especially the MAC,” Dammeyer added. “They don’t cut you any breaks when you’re trying to get through growing pains. I am a firm believer that tough competition only makes you better. My hope is that by the time tournament time rolls around, we shall see the results of all our hard work.” On behalf of the Panthers, Sarah Gehron contributed 14 digs, eight assists and two aces. She got plenty of help from Raegen Bransteter (12 kills, four blocks), Clista Hellwarth (5 kills, 3 blocks), Whitney Rollins (11 assists), Madison Roehm (15 digs) and Paige Hamrick (13 digs). In junior varsity action, the visitors grabbed a 25-17, 25-23 triumph. St. John’s hosts Ottoville for a 10 a.m. JV start Saturday, while Parkway plays Marion Local Thursday.

“He has gradually gotten better,” Jefferson coach Chad Brinkman said. “He shot 39 Wednesday in a practice round and he went out today and he did it. He is very happy, very pleased. He came in as a rough diamond. He was a physical player on the football field and he is a very physical golfer. He had to learn to kind of find some technique. He is starting to find those subtle things that help you from one sport to another.” Jefferson was one of the first teams to finish and Fitch had to wait through some anxious moments as other scores were being posted to see if his round would hold up. “You could see the nerves,” Brinkman said. “Being his first year may have helped him, not knowing what to expect. He just went out and played and it showed in his score.” As a team, Jefferson finished with a 356 team score for sixth place. Carter Mox finished with an 88, Zack Wannemacher had a 91 and Ryan Bullinger had a 94. Tyler Rice finished with a 107.

Strategies that prevent cancer also fight its recurrence
DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m a cancer survivor. Should I be following special guidelines for diet and exercise? DEAR READER: Advances in cancer treatment and earlier detection are allowing more people to live longer after a cancer diagnosis. Today, more than 12 million Americans are cancer survivors. And many of them look to diet and exercise to help prevent cancer recurrence, live longer or just feel better. Recently, the American Cancer Society (ACS) reviewed and summarized the scientific evidence about the role of diet and exercise for cancer survivors. They found that the same things that prevent cancer from developing in the first place also help keep it from coming back. The ACS published its findings in a report called “Nutrition and Physical Activity Guidelines for Cancer Survivors.” The ACS found that to reduce the chance of cancer returning and increase the chance of surviving, cancer-free, after a cancer diagnosis, survivors should: -Achieve and maintain a healthy weight; -Get enough physical activity (at least 150 minutes per week); -- Eat a healthy diet that emphasizes vegetables, fruits and whole grains; The ACS also provided specific advice for survivors of a variety of major cancers. I’ve put a summary of the guidelines on my website, AskDoctorK. com. The ACS also advised: -- Cancer survivors should work with a registered dietitian who has special certification in cancer care. He or she can provide specific, evidence-based advice. -Many cancer survivors have trouble taking in enough calories each day. Eating smaller and more frequent meals can help. Or try special fortified or nutrient-dense foods. -Use dietary supplements cautiously. Taking more than the recommended daily amounts (RDA) of vitamins and minerals does not improve treatment outcomes or long-term survival. In fact, it can interfere with some cancer treatments. For example, taking a beta-carotene supplement may encourage the growth of lung cancer. -- Exercise can help fight fatigue, keep you functioning and improve your quality of life. Discuss when to start exercising, and how much, with your doctor. -- Obesity appears to increase the risk of breast (and

possibly other) cancer recurrence. Losing weight and keeping it off can help improve survival. When some of my patients hear advice like the ACS has given, they are skeptical. To them, cancer is a powerful force, and it seems unlikely that a healthy lifestyle could do much to tame it. I tell them that the advice is supported by large and welldone scientific studies. There is little doubt from those studies, for example, that survivors of breast cancer who are overweight have a worse prognosis than those of normal weight. Or that those who exercise regularly have a better prognosis than those who don’t. We even are beginning to understand why. A research study was published recently which showed regular exercise leads to hormonal changes that discourage the growth of breast cancer cells. It’s not anecdotal: It’s science.

Dear Annie: My wife of greetings came that way, 25 years feels that emailing either. I don’t know what to and texting male friends is do. Do I mention that nothing nothing to be concerned about. ever came in the mail, or By accident, I discovered she should I let it go? She’s always good about had visited one of these men when she was supposed to sending Christmas presents, be at her girlfriend’s for the and I send her things in the weekend. She swears nothing mail, as well, but this has me happened. But I checked her perplexed. — Mailbox Mary Dear Mary: Since this laptop and found photographs friend specifically told you of the two of them. When I asked about to watch the mailbox, it means something the pictures, she was either lost in claimed she was the mail or she planning to send forgot to send them to me but it. If the former, never got around she probably is to it. We went wondering why for counseling you haven’t said after the weekend anything. If the trip, and things latter, she is likely calmed down for a embarrassed. How while. She ceased good a friend? If communication you can casually with that guy, as far as I can tell. Annie’s Mailbox say that whatever she meant to But I recently found email evidence that send never arrived, do so. she is still communicating Otherwise, say nothing. If with the other guy she knew she wonders why you haven’t from high school. They close acknowledged a card or gift, their emails with “love you she will ask. Dear Annie: This is for bunches” or “xxxoooxxx,” and I found one that said, “R,” whose mother is type AB and whose grandmother “Good night, Sexy.” My wife has no idea how is type O. A person with much this drives me crazy. Group O blood does not carry She sees nothing wrong with either the A gene or the B this communication. Could gene. Therefore, none of that you expound on this type of person’s biological children affair and the potential harm can be AB. However, your advice it can cause? What should we about everyone involved do? — Emotionally Drained Dear Drained: An getting tested was right on. As emotional affair is one a person who performs blood of emotion, rather than typing, I can attest to the fact physical, intimacy. There is that I have surprised a few no sex. However, there is people who thought they were deception, betrayal, intimate one type when in fact they communication (texts, emails, were another. — Jacksonville, phone calls) and an emotional Fla. Dear Fla.: Thanks for connection to the other person at the expense of the correcting us. You are right marriage. Often, the person that a Type O cannot produce involved denies that it is any a Type AB. But in exceedingly circumstances, an kind of affair, claiming it’s rare “only friendship.” But healthy individual’s blood type can friendships do not involve change. (This most commonly secrecy and lies and do not occurs after a bone marrow threaten the marriage. Please transplant). Mom could have go back to counseling. Your been adopted, or more likely, wife needs to understand how either Mom or Grandma is her actions undermine your mistaken about their blood trust, and you both must work type. Our main concern is the on ways to put your marriage granddaughter’s desire that Grandma be unrelated. But back together. Dear Annie: My friend even if Mom were adopted, and I enjoy writing letters and Grandma still raised her. As receiving things via regular far as we’re concerned, that mail. For my birthday, she makes her the mother. told me to watch the mailbox because she was sending me something. Well, long story short, nothing arrived. I did get cards from other people in the mail.

No compromise: Government on brink of a shutdown?
DONNA CASSATA Associated Press WASHINGTON — Moving closer to the brink of a government shutdown, House Republicans vowed Thursday they won’t simply accept the stopgap legislation that is likely to remain after Senate Democrats strip away a plan to dismantle President Barack Obama’s health care law. A sense of confusion settled over the House, both over how to avoid a shutdown and how to handle even more important legislation to increase the government’s borrowing ability to avert a default on U.S. obligations. Short of votes, House leaders shelved a vote that had been expected this weekend on the debt limit measure and gave frustrated GOP lawmakers few clues about what they plan to do to avoid a shutdown. The chaos sets the stage for weekend drama on Capitol Hill, with the Senate planning to send the fractious House a straightforward bill today to keep the government operating through Nov. 15 rather than partly closing down at midnight Monday. Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and several rank-and-file Republicans said the House simply won’t accept a “clean” spending measure, even though that’s been the norm in Congress on dozens of occasions since the 1995-96 government closures that bruised Republicans and strengthened the hand of Democratic President Bill Clinton. “I don’t see that happening,” Boehner said. Still, he declared that “I have no interest in a government shutdown” and he doesn’t expect one to occur on Tuesday. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said the Democratic-led chamber will not relent. “The Senate will never pass a bill that guts the Affordable Care Act,” Reid declared. A partial government shutdown would keep hundreds of thousands of federal workers off the job, close national parks and generate damaging headlines for whichever side the public held responsible. Washington faces two deadlines: The Oct. 1 start of the new budget year and a midOctober date — now estimated for the 17th — when the government can no longer borrow money to pay its bills on time and in full. The first deadline requires Congress to pass a spending bill to allow agencies to stay open. The mid-month deadline requires Congress to increase the government’s $16.7 trillion borrowing cap to avoid a first-ever default on its payments, which include interest obligations, Social Security benefits, payments to thousands of contractors large and small, and salaries for the military. The standoff just four days before the end of the fiscal year increased the possibility of a shutdown, with no signs of compromise.

The No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, Dick Durbin of Illinois, said that because of the time it takes the Senate to approve even non-controversial bills, if the House amends a Senate-passed spending bill and returns it to the Senate over the weekend, “That is a concession on their part that we’re going to shut down the government.” Not far from the Capitol, at a community college in Largo, Md., Obama insisted he would not negotiate over his signature domestic achievement, either on a bill to keep the government operating or legislation to raise the nation’s borrowing authority. “The entire world looks to us to make sure that the world economy is stable. You don’t mess with that,” Obama said of the debt ceiling/default measure. “And that’s why I will not negotiate on anything when it comes to the full faith and credit of the United States of America.” Responding to Obama’s non-negotiable stand, Boehner said, “Well, I’m sorry but it just doesn’t work that way.” Meeting behind closed doors, House Republican leaders encountered resistance from their rank and file over the debt limit measure even though they were attaching a list of other Republican favorites such as green-lighting the Keystone XL oil pipeline, blocking federal regulation of greenhouse gases and boosting offshore oil exploration. Republicans who lost the presidential election and a shot at Senate control last year are trying to use must-pass measures to advance agenda items that the Democraticled Senate and Obama have soundly rejected. The last-ditch effort on “Obamacare” comes just days before coast-to-coast enrollment in the plan’s health care exchanges begins Oct. 1. Despite the popular items, the leadership was struggling to win over its recalcitrant GOP members, especially tea party-backed lawmakers pressing for deeper, deficit-cutting spending measures. The spending cuts the Republicans would attach to the debtlimit legislation would be likely to represent a small fraction of the almost $1 trillion in new borrowing authority the bill would permit. “Among conservatives, there’s a lot of angst about that,” said Rep. John Fleming, R-La. Proposed changes include requiring federal workers to contribute more to their pensions, along with other items from a failed 2011 deficit-cutting effort. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, insisted that the House accept the Senate bill. “Republicans have got to put an end to the tea party temper tantrums and pass our bill without any gimmicks and without any games,” she said.

Deal reached on Obama mocks GOP for ‘crazy’ UN resolution on Obamacare predictions Syria weapons LARGO, Maryland (AP) — mentation. “The closer we get,
MATTHEW LEE Associated Press UNITED NATIONS — The five permanent members of the deeply divided U.N. Security Council reached agreement Thursday on a resolution to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons, a major step in taking the most controversial weapon off the battlefield of the world’s deadliest current conflict. Senior U.S., Russian, British and French diplomats confirmed the agreement, which also includes China. The full 15-member Security Council met behind closed doors Thursday night, and Britain’s U.N. Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant said he would introduce the text there. A vote on the resolution still depends on how the full council responds to the draft, and on how soon an international group that oversees the global treaty on chemical weapons can adopt a plan for securing and destroying Syria’s stockpile. Diplomats said the earliest the Security Council could vote would be late today. Both Lyall Grant and a senior U.S. State Department official described the draft resolution as “binding and enforceable.” But the draft resolution, seen by The Associated Press, makes clear that there is no trigger for enforcement measures if Syria fails to comply. Instead, it states that the Security Council will “impose measures under Chapter 7 of the United Nations Charter,” which will require a second resolution. Chapter 7 allows for military and nonmilitary actions to promote peace and security. Russia, Syria’s most powerful ally, had opposed any reference to it. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held hastily scheduled talks Thursday afternoon to resolve several last-minute disputes on the text. With just five days to go before Americans can begin signing up for health care under his signature law, President Barack Obama on Thursday ridiculed Republican opponents for “crazy” doomsday predictions of the impact and forecast that even those who didn’t vote for him are going to enroll. With polls showing many Americans still skeptical of the law known as “Obamacare,” the president went back to the basics of explaining how nearly 50 million uninsured Americans will be able to buy coverage in new government-run exchanges while mocking Republicans for trying to block its imple-

the more desperate they get,” Obama argued. “The Republican party has just spun itself up around this issue,” Obama said. “And the fact is the Republicans’ biggest fear at this point is not that Affordable Care Act will fail. What they’re worried about is it’s going to succeed.” House Republicans are inserting provisions that undermine the health care law into a short-term spending measure needed to avoid a government shutdown on Oct. 1 and into legislation that would increase the government’s borrowing ability, which the Treasury says will hit its limit in mid-October.

Current member of the local club and an Ohio Optimist Lt. Governor, Michael Friedrich feels the club is the strongest it’s ever been. “We have a good core group and younger members coming in,” Friedrich said. “I started in 1990 at age 10 helping my grandma, Doris Dickman, and fell in love with ‘Optimism’.” Friedrich was the secondyoungest to join the local club as an adult and hopes he inspires others. “I do what I do for the kids,” he said. “I’m in a profession I could die young. I’m a firefighter and an advanced EMT. I want to help the kids we have now and hopefully, someone will be there for the next generation or even my kids.” The club will celebrate its anniversary with a dinner including special guests on Sunday at the Delphos Museum of Postal History. The Optimists meet at 7:30 a.m. on Fridays at Mary’s A&W Restaurant.

“We may have a better shot at it than we thought,” Miller said. Also attending the meeting was Jon Fortman of Fortman Insurance in Ottawa who discussed employee benefits, renewal options and the effect of the Affordable Care Act on the insured in the near future. Council explored varying healthcare providers including Medical Mutual — the provider the village has now — United Healthcare and IHC Health Solutions. The village has until Nov. 1 to explore their options and make a choice. “Whatever you [council] decide to do, you are locked in for one year,” Fortman detailed. Fortman also gave members of council information on how the Affordable Care Act will affect insurance policy rates. “Rates will be based on a community rating and will affect preferred groups,” he explained. Board of Public Affairs officer Phil Hilvers reported the village’s water towers were recently inspected. The 1,000-gallon tower was found to be in good shape and the 2,000-gallon tower is in need of interior and exterior painting. “The paint is flaking off and needs attention,” Hilvers said. “We are getting a price on the painting so we have a plan.” Hilvers also discussed Chad Knippen’s schooling. In June, council recommended a September meeting with BPA, the Utility Committee — comprised of council members Jerry Markward, Karen Hoersten and Tony Langhals — Knippen and Water Treatment Plant Supervisor Steve Wittler to discuss Knippen’s interest in acquiring a Wastewater degree and license by taking classes geared toward working at the plant. Hilvers asked council if an agreement needs to be drawn up. “Everything needs to be in writing,” Miller said. “Maybe a pay raise when he does work down there,” Hilvers said. “Give him some incentive and make it beneficial for him to take the classes.” Langhals said that everybody needs to know what all the expectations are. Markward said the committee needs to get together on the paperwork. “When and if he does sign up [for the classes],” Markward detailed. “It’s $650 for three-hour classes once a week for 16 weeks.” “We can draw it up and everybody signs it. Get it notarized,” Miller said. “He [Knippen] also agreed to stay a certain amount of time,” Hilvers said. Council agreed that by the next village meeting on Oct. 28, there would be a rough draft of the agreement between the village and Knippen, which can be read by and tweaked by council members in November and then finalized in December.

Answers to Thursday’s questions: John Bardeen won two Nobel Prizes in physics. In 1956, he and W.B.S. Shockley and W.H. Brattain were awarded the prize for the invention of the transistor. In 1972, he and L.N. Cooper and J.R. Schrieffer were awarded the prize for developing the BCS theory, which uses physics to explain superconductivity. Bananas first grew in tropical Asia and were eaten by the ancient Greeks and Romans. Banana plants were transported from the Canary Islands off northwest Africa to the Americas soon after the New World was discovered. Today’s questions: What is the most widely-cultivated plant? What country has the highest number of physicians? Answers in Saturday’s Herald.
