“Nevada Falls” by Ansel Adams
... a Habitat for Humanity House family
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor email@example.com DELPHOS — As the prayers were said and the home blessed Sunday afternoon, Tom Stanton and Melanie Martin’s dream came true — they were officially homeowners. Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Bruce Hilty had a another surprise — the keys to the couple’s new home. “We don’t get to hand the keys over on this day very often,” Hilty said. “This is a nice surprise for Tom and Melanie. The paperwork all went through on Friday.” Stanton and Martin had longed for a place to call their own since their oldest child, Thomas Jr., now 7, was born. Soon his sisters, Leanne, 5, and Samantha, 3, joined the family. While not qualified for a traditional home loan, the couple had applied for the last Habitat Home built in Delphos three years ago but were turned down because the paperwork had not been submitted in the right order. This time, everything went smoothly. “I think everything happens the way it’s supposed to,” Martin said Sunday as she slipped the keys to her family’s new home into her pocket. “This place is perfect and the lot and is amazing and this is where we belong. We are so happy.” The new four-bedroom home will allow each of their children their own bedroom and an ample yard for running and playing. Newly-poured sidewalks are also exciting for the children. “They can’t wait to ride their bikes up and down the sidewalk,” Martin
said. “Tom Jr. has been picking up sticks in the yard every time we stop by here and he was always worried about his piles of sticks.” Tom Sr. is also a little sad the home is done. “It was great to meet all the people from Habitat and the volunteers,” he said. “I am amazed at how all this comes together. I’m going to miss working with all these guys.” Melanie enjoyed learning new skills. See HABITAT, page 12
Carrier Meyers recalls adding peanuts to pop

Clubs complete phase of landscaping at park
Kiwanis and Stadium Club members came out in full force Saturday morning and braved the blustery weather to work to complete phase one of the landscape installation at Waterworks Park. From the left is Delphos Stadium Club Trustee Clara Hanf, Denny Elwer, Mike Edelbrock, Red Neumeier, Ron Baumgarte, Ron Kimmet and Ted Hanf. Not pictured working on the installation was Delphos Stadium Club Trustee John Nomina and Ed Utrup. The park has undergone a tremendous revitalization with a new bridge spanning across Flat Fork Creek connecting the north and south sides of the park and convenient handicap friendly drop-off zones, walkways and bench seating. The landscape design is a vibrant, low maintenance, group of plantings promoting a variety of flower and foliage color and texture, privacy screening and hummingbird and butterfly attractors.

DELPHOS — In 1962 when Dan Meyers was 10 years old, he began passing the Herald as a sub for his brother Tom, who’s route was in Marbletown. Meyers got to know all the paper carriers pretty well while folding papers and getting ready for their late afternoon of paper delivery. He said his friend, Jerry Kemper, introduced the carriers to a new way of snacking on peanuts and drinking pop all the while having a free hand to fold papers into squares. “He would take a couple of swigs [of pop] and put the bag of peanuts into the bottle and it would fizz.” Meyers mused. “While he folded papers with one hand, he’d drink the pop mixed with peanuts with the other.” Meyers described the Marbletown route, which included 113 customers on Bredieck, West Clime, Clay and Skinner streets. He remembers the community being very close-knit and said that they took care of each other. See MEYERS, page 12
Lincolnview Schools to honor veterans Nov. 8
BY LINDSAY MCCOY DHI Correspondent email@example.com 2 3 4 5 6-7 8-9 10 11 12 MIDDLE POINT — Three years ago, Program Coordinator Stephanie Renner realized that Lincolnview had nothing in place to honor its veterans, a notion that bothered the local teacher. “Something needed to be done,” said Renner. “We established the Veteran’s Day Program, and we have been doing it ever since.” To show pride in local veterans, Lincolnview will be hosting the third annual Veteran’s Day Celebration and Memorial Program at 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 8 in the high school gymnasium. This celebration will focus on veterans both past and present, and students and staff have been encouraged to bring a veteran to be honored at the ceremony or to submit the name of a person who has been lost to be honored during the memorial portion of the program. This year’s celebration will be held a bit differently than in the past, being held in the afternoon instead of in the morning. This allows for veterans and families to travel into town as well as to take their children and grandchildren home after school. A lot of planning has already gone into making this special day possible, and Renner has even made the celebration a part of her students’ curriculum. Each of her students has written an essay pertaining to veterans, and one lucky student will be chosen to have his or her essay read at the day’s program. “We are hoping for a good turn out this year,” noted Renner. “We also want to invite those in the community who have served our country but may not have a student attending Lincolnview.” Last year’s performance saw numbers double from the first year’s event, but Renner is still unsure as to how many will be in attendance this year as forms continue to pile in from students and staff. Those in attendance will be honored for their service, and a memorial portion of the program will honor all those who served who have passed on. A lot of little things have also been added to this year’s
Obituaries State/Local Announcements Community Sports Winter Car Care Classifieds Television World briefs
program including third graders singing the National Anthem, a video presentation, a moment of silence and the playing of Taps. A reception will also be held at the end of the ceremony with cookies and punch. “I am very excited for this year’s event,” remarked Renner. “This event doesn’t necessarily cost a lot of money but is from the heart. I am very lucky to have an administration that allows me to put together this special event.”

For The Record Local businessman The Delphos OBITUARY Lou Reed, iconic punk poet, dead at 71 charged with theft, bigamy Herald
NEW YORK (AP) — Lou Reed, the punk poet of rock ‘n’ roll who profoundly influenced generations of musicians as leader of the Velvet Underground and remained a vital solo performer for decades after, died Sunday at 71. Reed died in Southampton, N.Y., of an ailment related to his recent liver transplant, according to his literary agent, Andrew Wylie, who added that Reed had been in frail health for months. Reed shared a home in Southampton with his wife and fellow musician, Laurie Anderson, whom he married in 2008. Reed never approached the commercial success of such superstars as the Beatles and Bob Dylan, but no songwriter to emerge after Dylan so radically expanded the territory of rock lyrics. And no band did more than the Velvet Underground to open rock music to the avant-garde — to experimental theater, art, literature and film, to William Burroughs and Kurt Weill, to John Cage and Andy Warhol, Reed’s early patron. Indie rock essentially began in the 1960s with Reed and the Velvets. Likewise, the punk, New Wave and alternative rock movements of the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s were all indebted to Reed, whose songs were covered by R.E.M., Nirvana, Patti Smith and countless others. “The first Velvet Underground record sold 30,000 copies in the first five years,” Brian Eno, who produced albums by Roxy Music and Talking Heads among others, once said. “I think everyone who bought one of those 30,000 copies started a band!” Times Bulletin Staff Report firstname.lastname@example.org VAN WERT — The man who was assumed to be the owner of the Black Swamp Bistro in Van Wert, Michael G. Johnson, was in court Friday after being arrested on two charges. The 54-year-old Johnson was charged with theft, a felony of the fifth degree, and bigamy, a misdemeanor of the first degree. According to information from the Van Wert Police Department, Johnson allegedly wrote a check without the implied consent of the business. The bigamy charge was also filed when it was found that Johnson has

TODAY IN HISTORY
Today is Monday, Oct. 28, the 301st day of 2013. There are 64 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 28, 1886, the Statue of Liberty, a gift from the people of France, was dedicated in New York Harbor by President Grover Cleveland. On this date: In 1636, the General Court of Massachusetts passed a legislative act establishing Harvard College. In 1776, the Battle of White Plains was fought during the Revolutionary War, resulting in a limited British victory. In 1858, Rowland Hussey Macy opened his first New York store at Sixth Avenue and 14th Street in Manhattan. In 1919, Congress enacted the Volstead Act, which provided for enforcement of Prohibition, over President Woodrow Wilson’s veto. In 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt rededicated the Statue of Liberty on its 50th anniversary. In 1940, Italy invaded Greece during World War II.

In 2001, the families of people killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attack gathered in New York for a memorial service filled with prayer and song. In 2002, American diplomat Laurence Foley was assassinated in front of his house in Amman, Jordan, in the first such attack on a U.S. diplomat in decades. Ten years ago: Firefighters beat back flames on Los Angeles’ doorstep, saving hundreds of homes in the city’s San Fernando Valley from California’s deadliest wildfires in more than a decade.

Several of the Dienstbergers were entrepreneurs and others had a passion for music. They ventured into such businesses as blacksmithing, buggy making, wagon and carriage maker, tent and awning, coal and auto sales. One business still survives as Delphos Tent and Awning. Some became teachers and one became a school bus driver. Some served their country in the military. Let’s review the fourth generation of the Dienstberger family. This includes Carl Owen Smith, son of Cedelia; Carl, Jr. and Sally, children of Carl, Sr. and Mollie; Evelyn, Paul Arnold, Donald Boyer and Robert (the children of William and Zoe); Cletus, Merle, Leslie, LaDonna, Martha and Irma (the children of Jacob and Anna).

Diane Marie Dienstberger married James LaVern Boser (b 1936). They had four children Timothy James (1958), Cindy Pikluski (1959), Jeffrey John (1962) and Amy Klimczyk (1967). Diane and Jim Boser live in Allegany, N.Y. They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 2007. Carol Ann Dienstberger married Joe Clarence Youngpeter (1937) and they
live near Landeck. They were parents of five children: Vicki Jo Schnipke (1961), Peggy Ann (1965), Becky Lynn Miller (1968), Tammy Rakovan (1970) and Mark (1971 – 1997). Carol and Joe were also blessed with celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in 2009. Joe is a farmer. Carol is a busy homemaker, after retiring from her position as a school bus driver for the Delphos City Schools. Danny Dean Dienstberger married Beverly Mericle Dancer and later divorced.

Paramount’s president of domestic distribution said it’s gratifying to see “Jackass” unseat the space adventure from its top spot. “We weren’t competing with ‘Gravity,’” said Don Harris. “We were not competitive in any other way than who was going to be No. 1 this weekend.” Sony’s high-seas thriller “Captain Phillips,” starring Tom Hanks, held on to third place with $11.8 million. An all-star cast including Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz and Michael Fassbender wasn’t enough to draw audiences to “The Counselor,” which opened in fourth place. The gritty Fox drama is a “very challenging, provocative film,” according to Chris Aronson, who heads distribution for Fox. “We’re fine,” he said. “I know we have a very competitive environment.”

He expects the film, written by Cormac McCarthy, to find its audience as it rolls out internationally in the coming weeks. Another drama, Fox Searchlight’s “12 Years a Slave,” edged into the top 10 despite playing in only 123 theaters. “This portends a tremendous expansion trajectory for the film” directed by Steve McQueen and starring Chiwetel Eijofor, Dergarabedian said. “In a sea of films that are in over 1,000 theaters, ‘12 Years a Slave’ is distinguishing itself by doing so well.” The overall box office is up 9 percent over the same weekend last year, Dergarabedian said. “Fall is probably the best season to be a moviegoer,” he said. “You can get really highbrow films, Oscar contenders, but you can also get something like ‘Bad Grandpa,’ which satisfies the needs for audiences to just have fun and check their brain at the door.”

Grove runs table to TCMFA title
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer email@example.com UNIOPOLIS — The Columbus Grove Bulldogs had run the table so far in the 2013 Tri-County Midget Football Association (7-0) when they played the Delphos Mohawks in the title game at Uniopolis Browns Field on a gorgeous fall Sunday. The Mohawks went toe-to-toe but the Bulldogs scored midway through the fourth period and held on for a 12-6 victory. Tied at 6-6 with seven minutes left in the contest, Grove started the game-winning possession at their 36. They needed four plays — all on the ground — to strike paydirt. At the Mohawk 40, Grayson Flores (22 rushes, 114 yards) took a handoff off right guard, pulled through would-be tacklers at the 35 and outran the defense to the right sidelines and the six. The 2-point run failed as they now led 12-6 with 4:54 remaining. The Mohawks tried to retaliate, starting at its 35. However, after gaining one first down, a bad snap on the shotgun put the ball on the ground and Evan Schroeder recovered for the Bulldogs at the Delphos 45. The Mohawks held on downs, taking over on the 40 with 21 ticks remaining. Peter Ankerman was incomplete on first down and was then sacked by Flores on the final play. After a pair of punts to open the contest, Grove commenced at its 38 and got on board in 11 plays, all but one (a 9-yard pass from Blake Reynolds to Adam Bogart) on the ground. On 3rd-and-1 at the Mohawk (5-3) 12, Flores took a handoff inside left guard and veered toward the pylon, winning the race to the end zone. The 2-point pass failed as the Bulldogs led 6-0 with 6:16 left in the first half. A pick by Grove’s Jarid Goedde and subsequent 17-yard return set them up at the Delphos 24. However, on the sixth play — a 4th-and-2 at the 3, Brayden Rudasill (8 rushes, 29 yards) was stopped a yard short of the first down.
The Mohawks then ran out the clock. Grove forced a 3-and-out of the Mohawks’ first possession of the second half but turned the ball over on a fumble at the 38, with Brady Welker recovering for the Mohawks. The Mohawks went backwards, turning the ball over on downs at midfield. However, another fumble — this one pounced on by Chase Martin — gave Delphos possession right there. They then went to a no-huddle spread and marched to the end zone in nine plays. Ankerman (4-of-15 passing, 52 yards) was 2-of-5 in the next five plays — a 27-yard connection with Welker and a 19-yarder to Jaylen Jefferson — to put the pigskin at the Grove 4 for a 1st-and-goal. Four straight running plays — two by Collin Arroyo around two by Welker — put the ball in the end zone, with Arroyo busting inside left guard on 4th-and-goal at the 1. The conversion pass failed as the score stood 6-6 with 1:34 left in the third stanza. See MIDGET, page 7
Bulldog, Lancer boys lead local State CC qualifiers
By Charlie Warnimont DHI Correspondent firstname.lastname@example.org TIFFIN — One year ago, the Lincolnview boys cross country team left the regional meet at Tiffin’s Hedges-Boyer Park disappointed as a fifth-place finish ended their season. After Saturday’s run at the regional meet, the Lancer boys once again had that look of disappointment leaving the finish line. That was until the official results were posted a few minutes later. When the official results of the boys Division III boys race was released, the Lancers found themselves sitting in third place, earning them a trip to the state tournament this Saturday in Hebron. The Lancer boys were not the only local teams to advance as the Columbus Grove boys advanced in Division III, as well as Crestview’s Mycah Grandstaff. In the Division II races, the Van Wert boys and girls cross country teams advanced. Several other local runners were unable to advance Saturday. The state cross country meet will be at National Trail Raceway in Hebron Saturday. The Division II girls run at 11:45 a.m. while the Division III boys race is at 1:30 p.m. and the boys Division II race at 2:15 p.m. After finishing their race Saturday, the Lancer boys left the finish area with heads hanging feeling they would fall short for a second straight year of making state. As fans and runners made their way to the awards area, the frowns quickly turned into shouts of joy as the Lancers saw they finished third as a team, giving them a trip to state. The Lancers had 146 points, 17 points in front of fourth-place St. Henry with 163. Liberty Center won the regional title with 78 points and Columbus Grove was second with 106 points. “Today we wanted to improve that one spot from last year,” Lancer coach Matt Langdon said. “It was an unbelievable team race. Our top kid didn’t run the way he wanted but everyone else just stepped it up. I’m kind of speechless; we were not expecting this result.” Lincolnview wasn’t sure about its finish as junior Bayley Tow had an off day, finishing 27th in 17:13.45. His teammates helped make up for it as Alex Rodriguez was 14th in 16:45.23 and Ben Bilimek was 37th in 17:22.13. Travis Lippi finished 50th in 17:37.47 and Trevor Neate was 64th in 17:52.44. “Bayley just got a little fatigued the last part of the race,” Langdon said. “Alex caught up to him and was our lead runner but give Bayley credit. A lot of runners may have fallen back even more but he hung there and his finish was key to us getting out. Our other kids all had a personal best today. It’s a cool story because Bayley didn’t make it on his own but he gets to go with the team. That just blows my mind because if you had asked me that question the other day, I wouldn’t have thought that way.” Another coach that felt that way Saturday was Columbus Grove’s Terry Schnipke. Last season, when everyone knew he had a strong team, the Bulldogs finished fourth at the regional. After having to replace his top two runners from that team, the Bulldogs turned in a solid effort as they finished second. “Last year we were supposed to be such a good team and we finished not having run very well,” Schnipke said. “This year we come here, get second and a trophy. I never would have expected this when the season started. These guys have worked hard all year. This is just a blessing.” The Bulldogs were led by junior standout Colin Grothaus as he finished fifth in 16:29.78. Logan Douglas finished 23rd in 17:05.12, while Jerry Kesselmayer was 28th in 17:17.23, Lee Altenburger was 42nd in 17:26.04 and Bryce Sharrits was 46th in 17:35.98. “The biggest difference between now and the end of the season, on paper, is Jerry Kesselmayer, who ran really great last year and has struggled some this year with his time; he is now back to where he should be,” Schnipke said of the team’s recent success. “Lee Altenburger has had problems with shin splints off and on and now he is healthy and running really
St. John’s senior Megan Joseph competes in her third regional cross country race in Tiffin. In her last high school race, she finished 27th with a time of 20:33. Also running for St. John’s at regionals for the second year in a row was sophomore Curtis Pohlman. He finished 85th with a time of 18:09. (Submitted photo)

(Delphos Herald/ Charlie Warnimont) well. I wouldn’t have thought we would have five guys in the 16s and 17s but we did and that is great.” Crestview finished eighth as a team in the 16-team field but managed to see the Grandstaff advance as he finished seventh in 16:32.88. Making state caps off an up-and-down season for the Knight junior, who battled an injury early in the season. “I think I’m running my best right now,” Grandstaff said. “I have one more week left and I want to go down to Hebron and try to run another PR. It’s just fun going down there.” Grandstaff said the key Saturday was trying to stay with the lead pack and not use a lot of energy running where runners were forced to run into a strong wind. “My strategy was trying to stay up with the lead pack,” Grandstaff said. “There were a lot of people that were sub-17 (minutes) and I tried to stay with the top people and hope we would pull away. Going into the wind I just wanted to draft off the people in front of me and that helped me out a lot.” St. John’s sophomore Curtis Pohlman finished 85th on Saturday in 18:09.21. Van Wert’s cross country teams made a bit of school history Saturday as they both qualified to state in the same year for the first time. The Cougar boys were the runners-up in the Division II race to Defiance with 104 points, while the Lady Cougars were fourth in the Division II race with 161 points, six points in front of Bellevue and Napoleon. “We’ve had a lot of good teams in the past and just weren’t able to put it together before,” Van Wert coach Brendon Moody said. “We are just overwhelmed right now. The girls are a pleasant surprise as we knew we had an outside shot coming in. The guys just keep doing what they do best and that’s get to the front of the race and finish it out.” The Lady Cougars were led by senior Andi Foster with a 16th-place finish in 19:47.6, while senior Amanda Clay was 18th in 19:55.84. Junior Schealissa William was 24th in 20:07.55, while sophomore Chloe Gamble was 45th in 20:40.71 and sophomore Megan Barnhart was 69th in 21:20.2. See QUALIFIERS, page 7
Continental Pirates rally to oust Kalida LadyCats
By Charlie Warnimont DHI Correspondent email@example.com BATH TWP — Defense has been the strong suit of the Kalida girls soccer team all season. With a offense that has struggled at times because of injuries and the graduation losses last season, the LadyCats’ defense had been vital to their success in 2013. And for nearly 75 minutes Saturday evening, that defense nearly had Kalida headed back to the Division III regional tournament. Having been frustrated by Kalida’s defense time after time during their Division III district final at Bath, Continental broke through in the final 5-plus minutes to score twice on their way to a 2-1 win over the Wildcats. The win advances the Lady Pirates (13-2-2) to the Division III regional semifinals Tuesday night against Oak Harbor at 7 p.m. in the two Putnam County League rivals. And that’s what the standing room crowd got as quality scoring opportunities were at a minimum. Both teams were credited with seven shots on-goal in the match with Kalida goalie Sarah Verhoff getting four saves and Continental keeper Emma Recker having four saves as well. Although the Pirates seemed to control the flow of the match much of the night, they had nothing to show for it for 75 minutes as they were frustrated by the Kalida defense. That was especially true for Pirate senior forward Paige Ordway as Kalida sophomore Cathy Basinger shadowed her anytime she got near the ball on the offensive end of the field. The strategy eventually forced Continental coach Toby Bidlack to move Ordway back to midfield and possibly open up some scoring chances for the Pirates. “Basinger did a fantastic job

After playing to 1-1 tie in the regular season just over two weeks ago, no expected anything but a defensive struggle between
defending Paige, the best job anyone has done all year,” Bidlack said. “It made things extremely difficult but we were fortunate to get that foul called at the top of the box and Paige had a moment there. She hit it and made it count.” Two of Ordway’s shots in the game were on direct kicks from farther out, one sailing over the crossbar and Verhoff nabbing the other. With time winding down on the Continental season, a Kalida defender was called for a foul just outside the penalty area trying to take the ball away from a Pirate forward. This time, Ordway made the most of the opportunity as she put her shot in the upper right hand corner of the net to tie the match at 1-1 with 5:14 left. As time continued to tick off the clock, it looked destined for overtime. However, McKenna Scott took care of that. See WILDCATS, page 7

(Continued from page 6)
A pair of turnovers set up the Bulldogs for their gamewinning drive. In the consolation game, the Delphos Reds (5-3) built a 12-point halftime lead and then held off Spencerville Bearcat Black (5-3) 12-8. The Reds dominated the game, amassing 216 yards of offense — 174 rushing on 38 carries — to only 70 for the Black (all on the ground). The Reds started the first possession at the 44 and reached the Spencerville 28 but on 4th-and-5, Hunter Haehn (10 rushes, 28 yards) was thrown for a 6-yard loss. A fumble recovery by Brent Teman gave the Reds the ball back at the Bearcats’ 43. It took seven plays — all but one on the ground — to
get on the board. At the 7, on 4th-and-2, Darius Shurelds (18 rushes, 118 yards) swept the right side, eluded a tackler in the backfield and found the right sideline for the six. The conversion run failed for a 6-0 edge with 7:50 left in the half. Delphos forced a 3-and-out and commenced its next drive at the 45. They put together a 10-play sequence to the end zone. On 2nd-and-goal at the Spencerville 1, Shurelds burst inside left guard for the score with 39 ticks left in the half. The 2-point pass failed for a 12-0 lead. Devin Lindeman recovered a short kickoff at the Bearcat 46 and the Reds looked to score again. On play four at the 23, Haehn connected with Cody Williams (2 catches, 42 yards) for a touchdown but an illegal participation penalty nullified
it, effectively end the half. The Bearcats had their best drive of the contest to open the second half, driving from the 42 to the end zone. Keyed by a personal foul on the Reds, the score came from the Delphos 11. Keegan Goecke (7 totes, 23 yards) took a handoff inside left guard, cut across the grain and beat the defense to the pylon. Eli Yale ran in the 2-pointer for a 12-8 deficit with 4:56 left in the third. The Reds seemed ready to respond, marching from the 22 to the Bearcat 44 in six plays. However, a fumble recovery and 6-yard return by Yale set the Black up at the Reds’ 43. They drove to the Delphos 2 (despite a holding penalty) in 11 plays — all rushing — but on 4thand-1, Joel Lotz (7 rushes, 33 yards) was thrown for a 19-yard loss to end the threat with 3:12
remaining. The Reds then gained four first downs and ran out the clock for the consolation victory.

Car care tips give peace of mind during winter driving
ASE — It’s foolhardy to head out in a poorly maintained vehicle in the dead of winter, of course, but even vehicle owners in temperate zones need a car care check as the days grow shorter, note the pros with the nonprofit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), an independent group that tests and certifies the competence of auto technicians. “Regular, routine maintenance can help improve your gasoline mileage, reduce pollution and catch minor problems before they become big headaches,” says Tony Molla, vice president of communications at ASE. ASE offers these car care tips to give you peace of mind during winter driving: — Before you do anything else, read your owner’s manual and follow the manufacturer’s recommended service schedules. — Get engine performance and driveability problems — hard starts, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc. — corrected at a reputable repair shop that employs ASE-certified repair professionals. Cold weather makes existing problems worse. — Replace dirty filters, such as air, fuel, and PCV. A poorly running engine is less efficient and burns more gasoline. —As the temperature drops below freezing, add a bottle of fuel deicer in your tank once a month to help keep moisture from freezing in the fuel line. Keeping the gas tank filled also helps prevent moisture from forming. — Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual — more often if your driving is mostly stop-and-go or consists of frequent short trips. A poll of ASE Master Auto Technicians revealed that regular oil and filter changes is one of the most frequently neglected services, yet one that is essential to protect your engine. — The cooling system should be flushed and refilled as recommended. The level, condition and concentration of the coolant should be checked periodically. A 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water is usually recommended. Do-ItYourselfers: Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled! — The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses also should be checked regularly by a professional technician. — The heater and defroster must be in good working condition for passenger comfort and driver visibility. —Replace old blades regularly. If your climate is harsh, purchase rubberclad (winter) blades to fight ice build-up. Stock up on windshield washer solvent — you’ll be surprised how much you use during the winter months. And don’t forget to always carry an ice scraper. — Have your battery checked. The only accurate way to detect a weak battery is with professional equipment. However, most motorists can perform routine care: Wear eye protection and protective rubber gloves. Scrape away corrosion from posts and cable connections; clean all surfaces; retighten all connections. If battery caps are removable, check fluid level monthly. A word of caution: Removal of cables can cause damage or loss of data/codes on some newer vehicles, so always check your owner’s manual first. Be sure to avoid contact with corrosive deposits and battery acid. —Inspect all lights and bulbs. Replace burned out bulbs; periodically clean road grime from all lenses. To prevent scratching, never use a dry rag. Clouded lenses can be refinished by many service outlets or by using a DIY kit found in major auto parts outlets. — Exhaust fumes inside your vehicle’s cabin can be deadly. Have the exhaust system examined for leaks and problems while the vehicle is on a lift. The trunk and floorboards should also be inspected for small holes. — Worn tires are dangerous in winter weather. Examine tires for remaining tread life, uneven wearing and cupping; check the sidewalls for cuts and nicks. See TIPS, page 9

The Herald Winter Car Care – 9
Coolant more than ‘cool’
ASE — It’s Fall and time to consider your coolant. This is a good time to think about your engine cooling system. Regular inspections and pressure tests of your cooling system are of utmost importance, as is good maintenance by following the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended coolant change intervals. As time passes, the protective anticorrosive additives in the antifreeze break down and lose their effectiveness. But antifreeze has two other very important jobs as well: • It is used to decrease the temperature at which the coolant freezes. • It is used to raise the temperature at which the coolant will begin to boil. It is also very important that the proper ratio of water to antifreeze is always maintained. Unless specified otherwise by the vehicle manufacturer, the coolant in most vehicles should consist of a mixture of 50 percent water and 50 percent antifreeze before being added to the cooling system. This 50/50 solution not only prevents freezing, but also preserves proper cooling properties. Also concerning the antifreeze to water mixture ratio: adding more antifreeze to the mix (once again, unless otherwise specified by the vehicle manufacturer) to increase its percentage in the mixture is not better. Generally speaking, after the ratio exceeds more than about 65 percent antifreeze to 35 percent water, freeze protection can actually diminish, but even worse, heat dissipation can radically decrease, since the water is the primary substance used for this purpose. Antifreeze itself actually has fairly poor heat transfer characteristics. Having too much antifreeze in the mixture can actually cause engine overheating.
Vehicle neglect takes the ‘pun’out of Thanksgiving
Jumper cable tips to avoid disaster
ASE — In the world of automotive emergencies, motorists need to learn certain procedures for “safety’s sake.” Two of the most valuable lessons, changing a tire and hooking up jumper cables are best learned before an emergency arises, according to the Car Care Council. The process of boosting a battery is especially important in cold weather. Jumper cables or cables on a portable battery booster should be connected properly to avoid sparks, which can cause an explosion of the hydrogen gas emitting from a battery. Beyond this, an incorrect hook up can damage critical and expensive, electronic components. The procedure is simple: Connect the positive (+) clamp to the positive terminal of the healthy battery and the other positive clamp to the corresponding terminal of the dead battery. Next, the negative (-), or ground, terminal on the good battery and, finally, the negative clamp to the engine block, frame or other grounded metal as far as possible from the battery. You want to avoid sparks in the vicinity of the explosive hydrogen gas that emits from the battery. Do not connect it to the ground terminal (negative). When using a portable battery booster, the process is much the same. Connect the positive clamp of the booster cable to the positive clamp of the dead battery. Then connect the negative cable to the engine block or other grounded metal away from the battery. The council offers an additional suggestion: if you are buying jumper cables or a portable battery booster, buy the best quality you can afford. Look for well-insulated clamps and 8-gauge wire. (Note: the lower the wire gauge number, the heavier the gauge.) Under the heavy electrical load of boost starting, lightweight cables may not be able to deliver enough current to start some engines. In fact, they have been known to melt in the user’s hand. If your battery is threeyears old or older and you haven’t had it checked, it’s a good preventive measure to do so, suggests the Council. A battery’s power is reduced as the temperature drops. And that’s when the engine’s starting demands are greatest. ASE — Don’t let soaring gas prices gobble up your hard earned money this Thanksgiving weekend; carve out some time to perform some simple fixins on your vehicle for better gas mileage, advises the Car Care Council. Or how about: • Before stuffing your family in the car… • Don’t hit the road on a wing and a prayer… • Get a leg up on the traffic by… • More miles per gallon is all gravy… • The dinner and the driving – it’s all about the gas… OK, had enough? Put a fork in it already? Got your attention? Seriously though, Thanksgiving is one of the most heavily traveled holidays by vehicle. Your gas mileage can be easily improved by checking a few basic items on the car. Start with the tires and make sure they are inflated properly. When they aren’t, it is similar to driving with the parking brake on and can cost a mile or two per gallon. Tire pressure should be checked at least once a month and don’t forget the spare. Air filters should not be clogged with dirt, dust or bugs. A dirty filter will choke off the air and create a “rich” mixture – too much gas being burned for the amount of air – that wastes gas and causes the engine to lose power. A rule of thumb is to have the air filter inspected at each oil change and replaced when dirty, torn, water or oil soaked, or when showing other signs of wear. Replacing a clogged air filter will improve gas mileage by as much as 10 percent. Spark plugs are an often-neglected maintenance item because of their longlife expectancy. They are one of the hardest working parts of the engine and when functioning properly, they improve reliability and maximize engine performance and fuel economy. Plugs that are worn or fouled can cause the engine to lose power or misfire, which wastes fuel. The replacement interval for spark plugs can range from 30,000 to 100,000 miles. A check of the spark plugs is usually part of a routine tune-up during which your automotive technician makes sure other ignition system and /or emission system parts, as well as the onboard computer control system, are working properly. A well-tuned engine delivers the best balance of power and fuel economy and produces the lowest level of emissions. Gas caps should not be damaged, loose or missing. About 17 percent of the vehicles on the road have loose, damaged or missing gas caps, causing 147 million gallons of gas to vaporize every year. In addition to proper vehicle maintenance, motorists can also get better gas mileage by avoiding aggressive driving, which can lower gas mileage by as much as 33 percent on the highway and five percent on city streets, and avoiding excessive idling as a vehicle gets zero miles per gallon when sitting idle. Letting the vehicle warm up for one to two minutes is sufficient. Motorists should observe the speed limit as gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. Each mph driven over 60 will result in an additional 10 cents per gallon. Cruise control helps maintain a constant speed on the highway. Combining errands into one trip will also save gas and time. Several short trips taken from a cold start can use twice as much fuel as a longer multi-purpose trip covering the same distance.
(Continued from page 8 )
Check tire pressure once a month, letting the tires “cool down” before checking the pressure. Rotate as recommended. Don’t forget to check your spare, and be sure the jack is in good working condition. Underinflated tires or poorly aligned wheels makes your engine work harder and thus use excess gasoline. Have your brakes checked periodically for safety and to prevent costly repairs that can be caused by neglect. The transmission is often neglected until a major failure. Routine checks and fluid changes at prescribed intervals can prevent very costly repairs down the line.
Always carry an emergency kit with you: extra gloves, boots and blankets; flares; a small shovel and sand or kitty litter; tire chains; a flashlight and extra batteries; and a cell phone and extra car charger. Put a few “high-energy” snacks in your glove box. The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was founded in 1972 as a nonprofit, independent organization dedicated to improving the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians. ASE-certified technicians wear blue and white ASE shoulder insignia and carry credentials listing their exact area(s) of certification. Their employers often display the blue and white ASE sign.

Not happy with work? Wait How Sandy went from ‘boring’ to until you’re 50 or older killer superstorm
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Not happy with your job? Just wait. A study by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that 9 in 10 workers who are age 50 or older say they are very or somewhat satisfied with their job. Older workers reported satisfaction regardless of gender, race, educational level, political ideology and income level. Consider Oscar Martinez. If Disneyland truly is the happiest place on earth, Martinez may be one of its happiest workers. Never mind that at 77, the chef already has done a lifetime of work. Or that he must rise around 3 a.m. each day to catch a city bus in time for breakfast crowds at Carnation Cafe, one of the park’s restaurants. With 57 years under his apron, he is Disneyland’s longest-serving employee. “To me, when I work, I’m happy,” said Martinez, who’s not sure he ever wants to retire. Though research has shown people across age groups are more likely to report job satisfaction than dissatisfaction, older workers consistently have expressed more happiness with their work than younger people have. The AP-NORC survey found significant minorities of people reporting unwelcome comments at work about their age, being passed over for raises and promotions, and other negative incidents related to being older. But it was far more common to note the positive impact of their age. Six in 10 said colleagues turned to them for advice more often and more than 4 in 10 said they felt they were receiving more respect at work. Older workers generally have already climbed the career ladder, increased their salaries and reached positions where they have greater security, so more satisfaction makes sense, says Tom Smith, director of the General Social Survey, one of the most comprehensive polls of American attitudes. “It increases with age,” said Smith, whose biannual survey is conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago. “The older you are, the more of all these job-related benefits you’re going to have.” Looking at the 40-year history of the GSS, the share of people saying they are very or moderately satisfied with their jobs rises steadily with each ascending age group, from just above 80 percent for those under 30 to about 92 percent for those 65 and older.

Now for a little history of some members of the Dienstberger families: Dolores (Wegesin) Dienstberger was well known and well loved by many Delphos residents, as well as by her family. The family lived at 535 E. Fifth St. and they were members of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. Dolores was chosen Tri-County Woman of the Year in 1990 and in 1999, she was honored as Grand Marshal of the Delphos Canal Days Parade. After retiring from the R. G. Dunn Cigar Factory, Dolores started volunteering her time in the late 1960s when Meals-on-Wheels began and needed drivers to deliver meals to shut-ins. She along with her husband, Paul, often handled the meal routes of both the Delphos Memorial Home and the Sarah Jane Geriatric Center. Her work at the Inter-Faith Thrift Shop began in 1970 when she served as one of the hostesses at the shop. Through the years, the Thrift Shop enlarged several times. Dolores’s husband, Paul passed away in 1982 and her six children had left the nest so this energetic woman accepted the position as director of the Inter-Faith Thrift Shop in 1983. Caring for the needs of others was not confined to the Delphos Community. She delivered clothing and other articles to the area migrant camps and to other communities, where there was a need. She often used her own truck. Harold Ladd and John Pointing would bring their semi-trucks to assist with the loads of clothing to different areas. By 1999 they delivered 140 loads to other places. As a director of the Thrift Shop, she took on the task of delivering food to the needy. Food was donated by Meyer’s IGA, Dave’s Market, Gessner Produce and the Chief Supermarket. Later, this job was taken over by the St. Vincent DePaul Society but the Thrift Shop still manages a food pantry. Dolores went to her great reward in Heaven at the age of 84 in 1999. She always had a smile and greeting for every-
one. She was survived by their six children, 14 grandchildren, five stepgrandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren and 10 stepgreat-grandchildren. The family of Dolores and Paul have scattered around the state and the country. Music has been a passion for many of the Dienstberger Clan. Leslie “Les” Dienstberger started making music in 1944 and he’s still making music; proving that there is plenty of life left after a guy turns 80. While Les was a sophomore in high school, and playing tuba in the Delphos High School Band, he was approached by his friend, Eddie Mox, who asked him to play tuba for the Pop Giesken Booster Band, since their tuba player was sick. That’s when it all started. His first night with the band was at The Well in Glandorf on Halloween. Almost everyone within 100 miles has heard of Pop Giesken’s Band. The name has changed over the years, and some members have come and gone, but Les is still with the band, which is now known as the Village Idiots. They have played in numerous night spots and participated in many parades. Les had to take time out to serve in the U. S. Army during the Korean War. Les also played in the Delphos Eagles Band. Les remembered that his grandparents played in the Dienstberger Band. Carl Dienstberger Sr. was very well known as a member of Paul Whiteman’s Band, once known as the “King of Jazz.” He was a popular violinist, soloist and director for the band from 1921-33. Carl started studying the violin when he was age 5 and he took the trolley car from Delphos to Lima, where he studied under Gail Watson, who was a student of Leopold Auer in Moscow, Russia. He became a violin virtuoso and played with the Cleveland Symphony at age 17. Carl helped organize the Delphos High School Band when he was 16. Carl had at least five well known bands of his own. During the old TriCounty Fair (aka Delphos Street Fair) Carl’s band played in the dance hall tent. Carl’s bands played in New York and Detroit. He broadcast daily on Detroit radio stations WJR, WWJ, WXYZ, WLW, KFOR, WIMJ and NBC In later years Carl returned to Delphos, where he became owner, operator of C. D. Motor Sales. He also served as a service director for the City of Delphos. Carl Sr. died in 1984 at the age of 84. His funeral was held at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. Carl Jr. (son of Carl Sr. and Mollie) lives in Delphos. Carl Jr. spent 30 years as an aerospace engineer in researching at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton before returning to Delphos in the 80s to assist his father as the Oldsmobile dealer. His sister, Sally lives in Florida, near her two children and grandchildren. Sally’s husband, Dr. John Hurt passed away during this past year. Jacob Dienstberger, the father of Les, was the founder of Delphos Tent & Awning, which has been located on North Main Street for several years. The business began on West Third Street, across from the funeral home. Herman Dienstberger joined his brother in the business and they changed the name to Dienstberger Brothers Tent and Awning. In the beginning, they put awnings on houses or businesses, took them down and stored them for the winter, then put them back up in the spring. At one time, they occupied the VFW Building because it was large enough for them to lay out tents on the cement floor. Jacob retired from the business, when he was in his 60s. Hermie was the sole owner until he sold it to Don Allemeier. It is a very thriving business, with tents all over this area and outside the area. For some added interest: The following was found by my friend, Evy on Ancestry: Nicholas Dienstberger, born 22 November 1922, died 9 December 1905 and buried in the West Plain Cemetery in Connecticut. His wife was Augusta, who died 18 October 1873. I would especially like to thank Paul, Les, Doris and Carl Dienstberger Jr. and Carol Youngpeter for giving me all the information on the families. Thank you!

“While delivering papers, our first break was stopping at Abbey’s Carry-out and buying a frozen Zero candy bar,” Meyers smiled. When it came to collecting subscription money, Meyers said that he and his brother remember collecting money from their paper customers frequenting Harold’s Bar. “They would tip us to keep us quiet about where we found them,” he chuckled. After three years of subbing, Meyers acquired the route when Tom took a job at Mickey’s Dry Cleaners. “Trying to ride my bike in the winter was a challenge,” Meyers said. “It was always cold, very cold.” Meyers said one night while passing papers during football season, he was very wet and extremely cold. A customer invited him in, gave him a big blanket and a bowl of chilli soup to warm up with while his clothes dried in the customer’s dryer. “My mom and dad called the customer and thanked him for taking care of me,” Meyers added. At that time, television shows included Bonanza, Ed Sullivan and The Andy Griffith Show. He said that Gressel’s, the old Delphos Brewery and the cigar factory — who were still manufacturing cigars — were behind St. John’s School. “I remember Kennedy being shot,” Meyers said. “My Mom had a scrapbook filled with all the newspaper clippings about the assassination which she cut out of the Herald.” Meyers reminisced about his first experienced with an underground sprinkler system located on a property on Clay Street across from Garfield Park. “We had to go up and place the paper on the porch and got caught in them a couple of times,” he said. He also painted a vivid picture of a peculiar scenario he experienced every Saturday when he collected at one of his customer’s homes. He said the customer would tell him to come in and be sitting at his kitchen table eating cereal, greet him and say ‘the money is in the cupboard.’ “I’d grab a kitchen chair, pull it to the kitchen counter, stand on the seat, reach up and get the money jar and take the money for the paper out,” Meyers said. He would put the chair back and proceed out the door, leaving the customer to his breakfast.
WASHINGTON (AP) — It was the moment a run-ofthe-mill hurricane mutated into a monster named Sandy. Paradoxically, it was the same time Sandy lost much of its wind power, dropping from a hurricane to a tropical storm. It was a Friday night and Sandy had just passed the Bahamas and was being enveloped by an ordinary cold front coming off the Southeast. It was changing how it got its power, where its highest winds were and even what it looked like. But mostly it was getting bigger. Dangerously large. And then it merged with a second storm, turned record huge and pivoted toward the nation’s largest city. It was that enormity that set off alarms in the people who knew weather, especially those living in the New York area. For a week forecasts placed Sandy on its path toward New York and it was it sticking to it. Months earlier, Princeton University professor Michael Oppenheimer had written a scientific study about the dangers of storms hitting the nation’s largest city, and now he was watching one develop. He was enthralled but fearful, hoping that the forecasts would change. “It was just this monster coming at us,” he said. ——— In the year since Sandy blew through the East Coast, meteorologists have pored over forecasts, satellite photos, computer models, and even the physical damage to try to get a sense of what made Sandy the demon it was. Put simply, what made the superstorm dangerous and freaky in more than a dozen different ways was a meteorological trade in: The hurricane lost some oomph in winds in return for enormous size. And just like Katrina seven years earlier, Sandy caused so much havoc because of its record girth, National Hurricane Center Director Rick Knabb said, adding: “Smaller versions of those same storms would not have had the same scope of disasters.” Sandy’s breadth pushed much more water into New Jersey and New York, dropped 3 feet of snow in West Virginia, caused 20-foot waves on the distant Great Lakes and registered other records reflecting whopping energy. It meant at least 182 deaths and $65 billion in damage in the United States, the second-costliest weather disaster in American history behind only Katrina, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

“Before when I though about building a house, I just imagined putting up walls and doors and windows and there it is, a house,” she said. “Now I know exactly what’s in the wall and where it is and how it got there and why it’s there.” The couple praised Construction Manager Roger Calvert for his patience. “I can remember when Roger told me numerous times to hold my hammer a different way and it would work better,” Martin said. “He just kept working with me to get it right.” What surprised the couple the most was the willingness of others to help them. “We knew our friends and family would be com-
Answers to Saturday’s questions: The first U.S. presidential mansion was located at 1 Cherry Street in New York City. It was not called the White House. George Washington lived there from April 23, 1789, to Feb. 23, 1790. The Teapot Dome, government-owned land rich in oil, was located in Wyoming. The scandal began when a Senate investigating committee discovered the Teapot Dome and Elk Hills, Calif., reserves had been secretly leased by Secretary of the Interior Albert B. Fall to private oil companies in 1922. Fall was eventually convicted of bribery and the entire Harding administration was tarnished. Today’s questions: Why did President Woodrow Wilson keep sheep at the White House? Who was the original Peeping Tom? Answers in Wednesday’s Herald.
ing to help on work days but the other volunteers were amazing,” Martin said. “Whenever anything needed done, Roger would send out a few emails and everyone would show up. Sometimes the volunteers were here before our friends. It’s wonderful to see these people come and help us and they don’t even know us. They all volunteered their time to better my family. That means more than anything to us.” The couple will begin moving their things in this week and hope to be organized for their first Thanksgiving. Once settled in, the couple hopes to return the favor when they can. “When they start the next Habitat House in Delphos, we are there. Now at least we know what we are doing,” Tom Sr. said with a laugh. “We won’t be the rookies.”
Hilty and Calvert both said they would welcome the couple’s help. “Tom and Melanie were so eager to learn,” Calvert said. “They never backed down from a challenge.” Hilty said Melanie was an asset on the project. “This girl is organized,” Hilty said. “She knew exactly what was going on, when things should happen and kept us all on track.” Habitat homeowners are required to put in sweat equity on the homes they purchase. Tom Sr. and Martin performed theirs at their new home during construction and Martin also worked at Restore in Lima. Tom Sr. is employed at Lakeview Farms and Martin is a stay-at-home mom. She hopes to start college courses once the youngest, Samantha, is in school.
