Fall back, change smoke detector batteries Sunday
Information submitted State Fire Marshal Larry Flowers is reminding Ohioans to make a potentially lifesaving change when they move their clocks back one hour on Sunday: Change the batteries in your smoke alarms. In conjunction with Ohio’s fire departments, the Division of State Fire Marshal encourages Ohioans to make a habit of changing the batteries in their smoke detectors at least twice a year – at the beginning and end of daylight savings time. “This year I’m challenging Ohioans to protect their homes and families through the simple act of changing out their smoke alarms’ batteries,” Flowers said. “Working smoke alarms and a well-practiced escape plan with two ways out save lives.” Flowers said firefighters still find that smoke alarms are often not present in homes or are not functional. Last year marked the lowest number of fire deaths in 26 years and yet data still showed that in an overwhelming majority of incidents where there was a fatality, there was no evidence of a working smoke alarm. Flowers offers these additional tips: • Test smoke alarms at least once each month to ensure that they are working properly. • Vacuum the dust from inside the detector at least once every year. • Never “borrow” a smoke detector’s battery for another use. • Change batteries twice a year or if a detector “chirps” to signal low battery power. If you have a smoke alarm with a built-in 10-year battery and it was installed before Oct. 31, 2003, completely replace the unit this weekend.

Walkman helped pass Horstman’s paper route time
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer email@example.com DELPHOS — In the early 1990s, when Carla Horstman started her route, she was distributing papers and listening to the popular music of the decade — NSYNC and Backstreet Boys — on a Walkman player. “At that time, technology wasn’t extremely fancy like it is today,” Horstman stated. “I had a Walkman and now, younger kids have iPods and cell phones.” She started delivering papers when she was 9 years old, had three different routes around town and passed close to 100 papers a day. Horstman delivered the paper after school and was out on her route by 3:30 p.m. each afternoon except on Saturdays when the paper had to be delivered by 8 a.m. She delivered the paper by bike and on foot and her route included most of the uptown businesses, Third, Fourth and some on Second streets. She remembers being paid 6 cents per paper. “On Saturday mornings, I would always drive with my dad and he would help me deliver them,” she said proudly. After three and a half years of passing papers, she became more active in school sports and had less time to spend on her routes. When she was 13 years old, her younger brother decided to take over the her routes.

Horstman By the time Horstman became a carrier, customers had been paying their subscriptions directly to the Herald’s office and she did not have the responsibility of collecting subscription dues. Horstman said there were a few not-so-good experiences while passing papers on her route. On her very first day, she and her mother were meeting the customers on her route and her mother was bitten by a dog. Another instance entailed a man riding a bicycle and following her on the route.

Franklin holds Halloween parade
It’s hard to tell who one might find roaming the halls at Franklin Elementary during Halloween. Perhaps Frankenstein or a shy giraffe? The school held a Halloween parade on Friday so students could share their spooky, silly or fun costumes. (Delphos Herald/Stephanie Groves)
Ohio launches first-of-its-kind $120M bridge repair/replacement effort
Information submitted first 40 bridges next year. ODOT will work with local officials to identify the remaining bridges to repair or replace in the following years. Bridges will be selected based on a variety of factors including safety and importance to local job creation efforts. “When we took office Ohio faced not only an $8 billion shortfall in our general budget but also a $1.6 billion shortfall in our highway budget,” Kasich said. “ODOT tightened its own belt, freed up more than $600 million and then Ohio leveraged the turnpike to generate an additional $1.5 billion, which grows to $3 billion when paired with federal and local funds. That innovative thinking and that careful management of our resources is why we can do this $120 million program to help counties and cities meet their bridge needs. In the past ODOT hasn’t really helped counties or cities address these kinds of needs but fortunately we’re in a strong enough position now that we can and we will.”

COLUMBUS — Gov. John R. Kasich announced Thursday that Ohio will invest $120 million to repair and replace more than 200 county and city-owned bridges over the next three years. The funds are made available by Ohio’s successful efforts to overhaul highway funding by reducing overhead costs and improving efficiency at the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). Work is expected to begin on the
Bridges slated for work in Allen County include: Lincoln Highway over Pike Run, Hook Waltz Road and Ream Road over Wrestle Creek. Ohio has 44,000 bridges, the second-highest number in the nation behind Texas. According to some reports, the condition of Ohio’s bridges are better than the national average but many bridges are waiting for much-needed repairs. Future bridges fixed under this program will be identified in subsequent years.

For The Record ODOT releases weekly road report
Information submitted The following is a weekly report concerning construction and maintenance work on state highways within the Ohio Department of Transportation District 1 which includes the counties of Allen, Defiance, Hancock, Hardin, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert and Wyandot. This report is issued each week beginning in April and continues through November. For the latest in statewide construction, visit www.ohgo.com. Please contact us at 419-9996803 with any information needs. Construction and Maintenance Projects Week of November 4, 2013 I-75 Reconstruction Project For the most recent information concerning the I-75 reconstruction project through Lima and Allen County and the safety upgrade of Ohio 117/309 on Lima’s east side, please visit: www.odotlima75.org I-75 between Fourth Street and Ohio 81 in Lima will have occasional nighttime lane restrictions during reconstruction of the existing lanes of pavement, replacement of mainline bridges and reconstruction of the interchanges. Work began in March 2013 and will continue through fall of 2015. Traffic is maintained two lanes in each direction the majority of the time. Lane restrictions generally occur from 7 p.m.-10 a.m. the following morning. The following is project information for the coming week: I-75 Mainline -Construction of the noise walls along I-75 between Ohio 117/309 and Reservoir Road is expected to begin next week with the mobilization of materials and equipment. Foundation work for the walls is expected to begin the week of Nov. 11. - Paving just north of the Ohio 117/309 interchange to Reservoir Road in the northbound and southbound lanes outside the barrier wall continues. During paving operations, traffic on I-75 could be affected at times. Motorists are cautioned to watch for concrete trucks entering and exiting the highway as the operation continues. - Occasional nighttime lane closures will continue on I-75 throughout the zone from Fourth Street to Ohio 81 generally from 7 p.m. until approximately 10 a.m. the following day. Normal traffic patterns of two lanes in each direction will resume during daytime hours. - Motorists should be aware that all entrance and exit ramp merge areas have been shortened throughout the project area. Drivers on I-75 are encouraged to use the passing lane through the zone if they do not wish to exit. Signs advising this have been placed throughout the project area. Ohio 117/309 interchange - The southbound entrance and exit ramps to and from I-75 closed Oct. 7 and will remain closed until late November. The closure allows for the construction of the new ramps at the interchange and facilitates construction of the Ohio 117/309 roadway itself. Traffic wishing to access I-75 northbound or southbound is directed to Ohio 117 east to Greely Chapel Road to Fourth Street. I-75 southbound traffic wishing to access Ohio 117/309 is directed to Fourth Street to I-75 northbound back to Ohio 117/309. - The entrance ramp from Ohio 117/309 to I-75 northbound remains closed as well. - The exit ramp from I-75 northbound to Ohio 117/309 remains open. Ohio 117/309 is at least one lane in each direction from the interchange area with I-75 to Bowman Road near the Allen County Fairgrounds during a safety upgrade project which will reconstruct areas of the pavement and install a raised curb median in the center of the roadway. This part of the project will be completed this fall. Traffic will be affected as follows in the coming weeks: - The project is nearing completion between Eastern Ave. (Pat’s Donuts) and the Allen County Fairgrounds. - Over the next two weeks, work will continue on traffic signals, signs and pavement striping. Traffic will continue to be restricted during these operations to one lane in each direction. - It is expected that by mid-November all orange traffic barrels will be removed from the roadway. Ohio 81 from just west of Stewart Road to just west of Neubrecht Road east of Lima is one lane in each direction in the existing eastbound lanes for pavement reconstruction. All ramp movements are currently maintained at the interchange with I-75. The following are the current traffic impacts: - All traffic on Ohio 81 from just west of Stewart Road to just west of Neubrecht Road is maintained one lane in each direction in the existing eastbound lanes during reconstruction and realignment of the existing roadway. - Work on paving the new concrete pavement continues. It is anticipated that traffic will be traveling on the new roadway by the end of the year. - Traffic on Neubrecht Road approaching Ohio 81 has been switched onto the new pavement on the west side of the roadway. No change in traffic pattern has resulted. - The ramp from northbound I-75 to eastbound Ohio 81 (exit 127 A) is closed; however, access to eastbound Ohio 81 is maintained by using the existing loop ramp on the northeast side of the interchange. A temporary signal is controlling ramp traffic. Allen County Ohio 309 at the eastbound U.S. 30 entrance ramp near Delphos will have occasional lane restrictions through the work zone during drainage work. The majority of the work will take place along the roadside. Putnam County Ohio 694 at Township Road 21 is restricted to one lane through the work zone at times during drainage work.

November brings new opportunities to library
November marks the beginning of new opportunities here at the library. The library is excited about collaborating on a program with Digital Works (A Division of Connect Ohio) and the Department of Job and Family Services of Allen and Van Wert counties to bring opportunities to the community for training with computers and customer service. The end result will be jobs for community members. The program will be beginning during the month of November. Stay tuned for more details in the near future. The Page Turners Book Club will meet at 10 a.m. on Nov. 9 at the library to discuss Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. The club is always welcoming new members, the book club meets on the second Saturday of each month. The teen advisory council will meet Nov. 16 to continue to plan for the teen area at the library. If you are a teen and are interested in becoming involved in the teen area please call the library for more details. The inaugural Read One Program with The Delphos Herald was well received by many library patrons. The library looks forward to next year’s Read One Program. Thank you to Nancy Spencer and The Delphos Herald for being part of the wonderful program. The Library’s annual “Food for Fines” project will begin Nov. 25 and run through Dec. 28. Patrons returning overdue materials between those dates will have their fines dropped if non-perishable items are donated to the library. Suggestions are paper products, toiletries, baby products, cereal, boxed mixes, cleaning supplies or canned goods. All donations will be given to the Delphos Community Christmas project and the Delphos Thrift Shop for their food bank. This is an excellent way to help the less fortunate during the holiday season.

Books on CD The Final Cut by Catherine Coulter Killing Jesus by Bill O’Reilly Gone by James Patterson Thankless in Death by J.D. Robb The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks Nonfiction One Summer, America 1927 by Bill Bryson The summer of 1927 began with one of the signature events of the 20th century: on May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh became the first man to cross the Atlantic by plane nonstop, and when he landed in Le Bourget airfield near Paris, he instantly became the most famous person on the planet. Babe Ruth was beginning his assault on the home run record, which would culminate on Sept. 30 with his 60th blast, one of the most resonant and durable records in sports history. The American South was clobbered by unprecedented rain and by flooding of the Mississippi basin, a great human disaster, the relief efforts for which were guided by the uncannily able and insufferably pompous Herbert Hoover. The gangster Al Capone tightened his grip on the illegal booze business through a gaudy and murderous reign of terror and municipal corruption. The four most powerful central bankers on earth met in secret session on a Long Island estate and made a fateful decision that virtually guaranteed a future crash and depression. All this and much, much more transpired in the summer of 1927. Dallas 1963 by Bill Minutaglio In the months and weeks before the fateful Nov. 22, 1963, Dallas was brewing with political passions; a city crammed with larger-than-life characters dead-set against the Kennedy presidency .Bill Minutaglio explores the swirling forces that led many people to warn President Kennedy to avoid Dallas on his fateful trip to Texas. Breathtakingly paced, Dallas 1963 presents a clear, cinematic, and revelatory look at the shocking tragedy that transformed America. Countless authors have attempted to explain the assassination, but no one has ever bothered to explain Dallas-until now. I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012, when she was 15, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school and few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala’s miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At 16, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace prize. I am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person’s voice to inspire change in the world. Fiction Sycamore Row by John Grisham John Grisham returns to that famous courthouse in Clanton where Jake Brigance once again finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial-a trial that will expose old racial tensions and force Ford County to confront its tortured history. Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County’s most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. In Sycamore Row, John Grisham returns to the setting and the compelling characters that first established him as America’s favorite storyteller. Litter of the Law by Rita Mae Brown Rita Mae Brown collaborates with feline co-author Sneaky Pie Brown in a new mystery starring Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen, the curious cat detectives Mrs. Murphy and Pewter, and Tee Tucker, the valiant crime-solving corgi. Halloween arrives early this year to rural central Virginia, when a twisted killer will stop at nothing to protect a multimillion-dollar scheme. Autumn has descended and crops are being harvested all over Crozet, Va., ideal conditions for a scenic drive for Harry and husband Fair. Bucolic
views are all well and good, but Harry’s nose for trouble leads her straight to a cornfield’s macabre scarecrow—an all too real murder victim that frightens all but the noisy crows. Storm Front by John Sandford In Israel, a man clutching a backpack searches desperately for a boat. In Minnesota, Virgil Flowers gets a message from Lucas Davenport: You’re about to get a visitor. It’s an Israeli cop, and she’s tailing a man who’s smuggled out an extraordinary relic—a copper scroll revealing startling details about the man known as King Solomon. Wait a minute, laughs Virgil. Is this one of those Da Vinci Code deals? Should I be boning up on my Bible verses? He looks at the cop but she’s not laughing. As it turns out, there are very bad men chasing the relic, and they don’t care who’s in the way or what they have to do to get it. Maybe Virgil should start praying.
Those Were The Days
A fishing tale
John Buchan said, “The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.” It was the hope of catching a large salmon that caused me to wake a couple of hours before daylight on Wednesday morning, Oct. 2. There was no time for morning coffee or breakfast. My fishing buddy, Bob, and I wanted to get to what we perceived as the best spot on the stream before anyone else. After a quick double check of fishing tackle and accessories needed, followed by putting on chest waders, coat, hat with headlamp and grabbing a cold pop tart to go, we were off. Several minutes later, we arrived at a place to park the car and were disappointed to find another car had already arrived. I quickly got my fishing gear out of the car. Bob asked me to go ahead and try to get to our favorite spot while he made sure he finished getting the net and his fishing tackle. With headlamp on, I began to carefully descend the steep bank that led to the trail through the woods toward the stream. Although it was very dark, I found the path and continued the journey up and down the winding trail that had been formed from the steps of so many fishermen over a peri-

FROM THE CHILDREN’S CORNER: Nighty Night Little Green Monster by Ed Emberly Emberly is the creator of ‘Go Away, Big Green Monster’ a wonderful picture book that has been entertaining young ones for many years. This new title has kept the cut-out illustrative design where something is added to the monster on each page, like squiggly hair, and then taken away again until the monster is all gone. The twist here – you’re saying ‘nighty night’ to the monster and to your little one as you read. The ‘Little Green Monster’ couldn’t be cuter! Blessing Cup by Patricia Polacco Though Polacco writes picture, books the subject matter and length make them more suitable for the 3rd and 4th grade reader. We first met Polacco’s great-grandmother Anna in the ‘Keeping Quilt’, the story of a quilt passed down from generation to generation made of fabric from different family members. Those same family members re-appear in this new story about the tea set brought to America when the family left Russia. Family legend says that anyone who drinks from the tea cups will receive a blessing from God. These stories are heartwarming, thought-provoking and you’ll want to read them all.

od of who knows how many years. I wondered if anyone had ever tripped over a root, fell and were injured. Or how many had broken their fishing rod on overhanging branches as they rushed to wet a line. After several minutes, I arrived at the top of a ridge where I thought I wanted to be and looked in the direction of the water. The headlamp pierced through the darkness enough that I could see the stream and the fallen tree that confirmed I was at

“I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.” — Thomas Jefferson
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
DEAR EDITOR: I am writing to encourage my neighbors from the south end of town to attend the city council meeting at 7 p.m. Monday. Not only will we be supporting our fireman, medics and EMTs but it is my hope also that the subject of the condition of the canal can be addressed as was brought up by councilman Mark Clement at the last meeting. I realize the canal is owned by the state of Ohio but I would love to know who we go to for help? The Department of Natural Resources? This is a huge part of Delphos history; the residents themselves simply cannot clear all the brush and help with water flow. We’ve raised our kids by the canal, they grew up fishing, catching frogs and snakes and feeding the ducks. We have not been able to fish for the past few years. We can still feed the ducks but the poor things have to walk through mud and muck to get to the food. We need help. This causes a huge problem with bugs and really smells most of the time. There are so many issues right now, we as residents of Delphos need to be there to voice our concerns if we want to make any positive changes! Sincerely, Amy Musser Delphos DEAR EDITOR: November is COPD awareness month. COPD stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and is the third-leading cause of death in the United States. It is marked by a chronic cough producing increasing amounts of phlegm, and gradually worsening shortness of breath. Unfortunately, the symptoms of COPD do not appear until significant lung damage has been done, at which point the damage cannot be fixed. Nine out of 10 people who have COPD are currently or have been smokers. The single most effective way to prevent COPD is to quit, or, better yet, never start smoking. Working in pulmonary rehab for 14 years has exposed me to some of the worse cases of COPD in the area. Watching the fun-loving, big-hearted people ever so slowly file into the room for exercise was heart-breaking. If I had a dime for every time one of them told me “I wish that I had never started smoking. I would be a rich woman.” Decades ago when these patients were teenagers, they were much like the teenagers today. They just wanted to “try it” or they would “quit when I get older.” What they don’t realize at the tender age of 16 is just how addictive the tobacco companies make their products. Their best customers are dying off at the rate of 443,000 per year. Almost everyone in the community can play a part in decreasing the devastating effects of this debilitating disease. Tobacco users can go to www.smokefree.gov or call 1-800-quit-now to get support for quitting. Parents can make their homes and vehicles completely smoke-free and make it explicitly clear to their children that they have a zero-tolerance policy for tobacco use. Retailers can be sure to check photo ID of any customer purchasing tobacco products who looks 26 years old or younger and not sell a tobacco product to anyone under the age of 18. It’s the law and there are ramifications for anyone breaking it. Employers can establish and enforce no-tobacco-use policies during work hours. Health care providers can ask every patient at every visit if they use any tobacco products and strongly encourage them to quit and give them the resources to do it. Community leaders can enact smoke-free outdoor public spaces in parks and outdoor fairs/festivals and increase the tax on any tobacco product. Seventy-three percent of current smokers want to quit, so let’s make it easier for them! The Pulmonary and Sleep Center at 528 West Market St. in Lima will offer a Free Lung Screening from 1-5 p.m. on Nov. 15. We will do a simple spirometry test and you can also have a finger stick done to test for Alpha 1- antitrypsin deficiency (ATT), an inherited disorder that results in lung damage and shortness of breath. The screenings are free, however, we would like to get a count of how many people may be coming. RSVP to 419-221-5035.

Talkin’ turkey, no jive
What place will Thanksgiving have this year? I’ve written several times of how I feel perhaps one of the most necessary of holidays — the one where we are supposed to count our blessings and be thankful for what we have — is going to be lost in the commercial frenzy known as Christmas shopping season. Stores are already offering Black Friday pricing to move as much merchandise as they can before the dreaded Christmas markdown. After all, they lose a whole week of sales this year. Trees and tinsel have popped up everywhere. But in my little corner of the world, I’m plotting and planning that special meal that brings our families and loved ones together for food, fellowship and yes, football. This year is a little more special than most. My husband’s sister and her family will be here. I haven’t seen them in almost three years and it’s about time. The turkey will roast and fill the house with that delectable, mouth-watering smell. The potatoes will be bubbling on the stove and the deviled eggs will disappear before the meal hits the serving dishes. We’ll bow our heads and say a prayer of thanks for all who are around our table and those who could not be there for whatever reason. My sisters-in-law, mother-in-law and I will chat while we clean the table, put
On the Other hand
away leftovers and do the dishes. The men will head into the living room to watch a game and soon the soft contented sound of snoring will waft into the kitchen. Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about. Thanksgiving will be a tough holiday for some, too. A Thanksgiving feast may be out of reach and some will find little to be thankful for. But it’s the little things we need to give thanks for. If you are breathing, be thankful. Many will face a Thanksgiving with one or more empty chairs. If you have a roof over your head, be thankful. Many are homeless. If you have food, be thankful. Many people are wondering where their next meal will come from. If you have a job, rejoice. You all know what it’s like out there. If you have your health, dance. There is always someone else who has less. Counting all those little blessings add up to something big!
JUST A THOUGHT
Sleep fascinates me. I am an insomniac. I have been this way as long as I can remember. I’ve tried every OTC medication, practically every prescription medication…I’ve done “natural” remedies… everything. I’m starting to think that I’m a person who’s not meant to sleep. I find it intriguing that everyone seems to have a different sleep style. My husband passes out and begins snoring (sometimes) as soon as his head hits the pillow. Which infuriates me, by the way, because I’m trying desperately to fall asleep and it kind of sucks to stare at someone who’s already way off in dreamland. But I’ve heard the real test of true love is wanting to strangle your partner in his or her sleep and not actually going through with it. So at least I have that - true love - going for me. So is anyone else out there one of those people who find it hard to fall asleep at night? What methods have you tried? Has anything worked? Please share if you’ve found something that works! I’m desperate. It’s just that I lie down at night, and I have a million thoughts racing through my head at lightning speed. I close my eyes and see flashes of color, images darting back and forth… no matter how hard I try to relax, (it sounds weird to say “try hard to relax,” but that’s me) nothing comes of it. Luckily, the Hallmark channel plays marathons of Frasier, The Golden Girls and Cheers all night, so I have them to keep me company. From the bottom of my heart, sincerely, I want to thank Rose, Dorothy, Blanche and Sophia for being a friend. They are what I look forward to most when I get into bed at night. I want to find all the night owls out there and see if maybe we can figure this out together. Unless I was really born nocturnal, like an actual owl…is that even possible? I’m starting to think so. I am bewitched by what happens when I do actually sleep. I have the most vivid, real dreams. I remember them every time. I also have lucid dreams, which means when I’m dreaming I realize I’m dreaming and I can control what I do in the dream. It’s insane. But I think I love it. I have the most ridiculously real, Stanley Kubrick-directed dreams. It’s interesting to me too, that some people don’t ever remember their dreams. My husband rarely remembers his. I enjoy interpreting dreams when they do happen. I really think that my dreams have a lot of significance. They always seem to be a subconscious manifestation of whatever I have going on in my life, sometimes presenting a solution to a problem I’ve been wrestling with when I’m awake. So if you haven’t done it too often, take some time to analyze your own sleep style. You could possibly learn a lot about yourself. I think I’m going to even start a sleep journal to help me better figure out the meaning of my dreams and maybe what helps and doesn’t help me fall asleep. I’d love your feedback on this, so again, feel free to contact me! Until then… Sweet dreams. (Hopefully.)

While cautiously making the descent, I heard the sound of a salmon splashing as it made its way upstream. With high hopes and heart racing, I made it to a flat area of the bank, placed my fishing gear on the ground, sat down on the bank and slid into the stream. It was still so dark that it was difficult to see where to make a cast without the danger of getting hung up on fallen trees and brush so I decided to wait until Bob arrived. The dawn was just beginning to break as Bob got there. I couldn’t wait any longer! I started casting my lure toward the spot where I had heard the sound of another fish. The lure had just hit the water when WHAM – fish on! The strength of the salmon as it fought to get away made it obvious that it was a big one. With rod tip high and using as much leverage as I could without breaking the line, I tried to get it out of the current into calmer water. Every time I began to reel the fisher closer to me, it would make another run, get back in the current and head downstream toward a tree that had fallen across the water. If it made it under the tree it would probably break off or get away. After several minutes of battling the fish,
and with my right arm aching from the fight, Bob tried to net the salmon. The sight of the net caused the salmon to make another run and the fight continued. I admired the determination of that fish to get away, but I was determined that this was one big one that wasn’t going to. Up and down the stream the salmon went with me carefully wading in whatever direction needed to keep my hope of catching it alive. Finally, I was able to wear the fish down and reeled/pulled it into the net. If you’ve never fished, I suppose it’s difficult for you to understand the thrill and the great joy that can come from catching a huge fish as well as the bitter disappointment when the big one gets away. The Fisherman’s Prayer is “Lord, help me to catch a fish so large that even I in the telling of it never need to lie”… The definition of a FISH: an animal that grows the fastest between the time it’s caught and the time the fisherman describes it to his friends. It’s been said, “Bragging may not bring happiness, but no man having caught a large fish goes home through an alley.” How big was the salmon I caught on that memorable morning? I don’t want to brag, but just ask me to show you the picture because “a picture is worth a thousand words!”
(Continued from page 1) “I tricked him by having him deliver a paper for me while I went into a business and had a man call the police,” Horstman said. “I was so freaked out.” She said the man was arrested and transported to jail. “Winter made delivering papers a little rough when it would snow but I always managed to get the job done,” Horstman stated. “I would always check the weather and see if I needed to bag them and keep them dry.” Horstman said that most of the time customers’ walks and steps were not shoveled. “My dad would come home for his lunch break and drive me to deliver papers if the weather was bad,” she said. “My mom would also help by rolling the papers and delivering them as well.”

The Last Present by Wendy Mass This series began with 11 Birthdays Finally and 13 Gifts. All the books are loosely connected but could be read alone and all are centered on Amada’s birthdays from 11 to 14. This last title has a little supernatural time-travel thrown in. Amanda’s friends’ sister Grace has fallen into a strange frozen state and Amanda must travel
back in a race against time to fix it. The stories all take place in Willow Falls where “anything is possible and there are no coincidences.” Beyond Courage, the Untold Story of the Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust by Doreen Rappaport Do you have a young person who likes to read about World War 11 and the Holocaust? This poignant book describes the heroic and
ill-fated resistance of the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, in the camps and in the countrysides of France, Greece and Germany. The fighters used unconventional weapons and great courage to fight a battle they knew that only a few would win. They were resolved to save Jewish lives or die trying. This is a piece of history everyone should know and Rappaport has put it all between the pages of this riveting book.

Cicely appears to be an Australian Shepherd mix that was born in January 2012. She is very friendly, with tons of energy, and would possibly make a great running buddy, or a great fishing buddy. She still needs acquainted with toys a little bit. She is a beautiful dog with a very loving personality.
You really must use all five senses to fully appreciate a cat. This 1-year-old gray tiger is loaded with rich, plush fur you won’t want to stop petting. Aside from feeling amazing, Marsha’s coat has a unique pattern of grey tiger stripes floating on snow-white patches. And her eyeliner couldn’t be more perfect.
The following pets are available for adoption through The Van Wert Animal Protective League: Cats Russian Blue, F, 1 year, 2 year, neutered and front dewclawed, dark gray, name Elouise and Edith M, F, 1 year and older Kittens M, F, 9 weeks, shots, dewormed, black and white, white and gray M.

If you are looking for a pet not listed, call to be put on a waiting list in case something becomes available. Donations or correspondence can be sent to PO Box 321, Van Wert, OH 45891.
By now, you probably have heard we are having a whale of a party at the museum Sunday. When I look at everything we have to offer, I feel like a kid in the candy store. Enjoy complementary wine (that means ‘it is on the house’) and wonderful hors d’oeuvres as you preview all the art. That preview/cocktail hour begins at 3 p.m. The excitement of the auction is one thing but we will be having all kinds of ways for you to walk out of here with a real gem. You can bet that we will have the ever-popular 50/50 drawing but there is more. We will have a silent auction for some interesting libations but the big item is right behind door number two. It is a raffle for a one-week stay in a resort area of the United States in a fully-stocked condominium (worth between $1,000-$1,200). You even get a list of places to choose from and when you would like to go. Wow! Anyone can purchase tickets. The more you buy, the better….Think about your odds of winning! How do you like that? Call today and reserve your seat. (Ruth Ann at 419-296-8443 or Gary Levitt at 419-3035482) If you get voicemail, please just leave a message. Entrance fee is just $10 per person. The best fundraising events are when people know what the need is. Those of you who have attended functions at the museum’s second floor gallery know that we have no running water. There used to be a couple of bathrooms and a wet bar as well. Now people have to use the facilities that are on the first floor. In addition, lighting is a real problem. At the moment, there are just a couple of household-style light fixtures
to illuminate the 4,700 square feet of display area. Bottom line: until we have a useful lighting system, we will continue to have to borrow portable lighting. Both of these items are required for us to use the space effectively and as an opportunity to provide programming that will benefit both the museum and local groups as well. The postal museum has joined a group that is very concerned about preserving our history- the Ohio Local History Alliance (OHLA). As a member of their board, I will be serving as the representative for Northwest Ohio. This organization works in conjunction with the Ohio Historical Society. Their current campaign deals with the impact you and I can have on the welfare of the local non-profit by donating your tax refund to an organization like the Museum of Postal History. Yes, you most likely will get a tax deduction for your taxes of the following year but the thought that you can make a difference – that’s the real joy of giving. We have survived and even thrived because of local interest, local fundraising and local giving. When you step into the entranceway, you will see how important our major donors have been to us. To learn more about the OHLA, check out their website at www.ohiolha.org or see their promotion video on youtube. Just think what we can all accomplish together. There are tickets available at the door. Call me for more information.

Jays wear down Minster, await playoff fate
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer email@example.com DELPHOS — It’s win-or-gohome time. That would describe the Minster at St. John’s Midwest Athletic Conference clash Friday night at Stadium Park. Both the Blue Jays and the Wildcats needed to win and get help to extend their season into next week. The Jays — honoring 11 seniors playing their final regularseason games — rallied with 21 points in the fourth period and held off Minster 35-28. St. John’s (6-4, 6-2 MAC) were ninth in Region 24, while Minster (6-4, 6-2) stood ninth in Region 22. “I don’t want to say we are in for sure but it looks good that we made the playoff. We can watch the scoreboard and wait until it’s official,” St. John’s head coach Todd Schulte asserted. Minster led 21-14 to start the second half. Minster gained a first down and the Jays two — including a 13-yard run by upback Tyler Jettinghoff (32 rushes, 141 yards, 4 scores) on a fake punt from the 44 — before punting the ball away on the first two drives of the second half. However, on the Jays’ boot from the Minster 38, Ben Wrasman pinned the Wildcats at the 4. The ‘D’ forced a 3-and-out and a 3-yard shanked punt gave the Jays a 1st-and-goal possession at the 10. Nick Martz ran for three, Luke MacLennan for three and, on the first play of the fourth period, Jettinghoff — out of the stack ‘I’ — powered inside left tackle for the six. Wrasman made it 21-21 with three ticks off the 4th-period clock. The Jays’ defense rose up again and forced a 3-and-out; Evan Hays’ 14-yard return set the offense up at the 46. From there, it took 10 plays — including a 12-yard Martz-to-Tyler Conley connection on 4th-and-3 from the Wildcat 30 — to take the lead for good. At the 11, Jettinghoff, lined up as a wingback on the right side, took a reverse pitch from Martz around the left side; he stiffarmed a defender in the backfield and found the blocking to the end zone. Wrasman made it 28-21 with 3:57 remaining. Hays came up with another big play — on defense; on the second play from scrimmage at the Minster 25, he picked off a tipped Josh Nixon (17-of-26 passing, 230 yards) pass and returned it 18 yards to the 12. Four straight runs by Jettinghoff finished it off, the last a 1-yard jolt off left guard where he pushed the pile. Wrasman made it 35-21 with 2:30 left. Minster used a 33-yard Sam Dues kickoff return to start at the 40. Nixon was 3-of-5 on the drive for 62 yards in the 6-play sequence. At the Jays’ 44, Nixon threw down the middle for the 6-4 Eli Wolf (7 grabs, 98 yards), who outjumped the defender for the catch; once he hauled it in at
Wildcats bounce Bearcats in annual backyard brawl
By TREY SMITH DHI Correspondent firstname.lastname@example.org SPENCERVILLE — Jefferson traveled to Spencerville Friday night to compete against the Bearcats in one of the premiere rivalries in high school sports in the state of Ohio. The Wildcats likely secured a home contest in next week’s playoff opener with a 35-21 victory in a Northwest Conference tussle. Jefferson (9-1, 6-1) also secured a tie for the league title. Jefferson came into the game without sophomore linebacker Dalton Hicks in the starting lineup but showed no letdown in their defensive tenacity, stopping Spencerville on their first drive of the game. After the Bearcat punt, the Red and White began their opening drive at their own 15. Jefferson made short work of the possession, going right at the Bearcat defense with a balanced offensive attack and scoring on a 1-yard run from Zavier Buzard. Spencerville received the ball at the 40 after the ensuing kickoff bounced out of bounds and seemed to be gaining a little momentum after the Jefferson score. However, Ryan Kerby sparked the Wildcat defense with a tackle in the backfield on third down. Spencerville attempted to convert on the fourth down but was stopped at the line scrimmage by a host of Wildcats, giving Delphos the ball. Jefferson ended the first quarter with possession of the ball and a third down at the 5-yard line. After getting the ball down to the 2, Spencerville held strong, stopping the Wildcats on a fourth-down attempt at the 1. The Bearcats had very little turf to work with and were forced to punt from their own end zone after yet another stand from the Jefferson defense. The Red and White set up shop from the 33 in Spencerville territory. The offense continued to make short work of its drives, this one resulting in a touchdown pass from Austin Jettinghoff to Ross Thompson. Kurt Wollenhaupt added the PAT , extending the Jeffcat lead to 14-0. Spencerville bobbled the following kickoff but picked up the loose ball and returned it all the way down to the Jefferson 37, their best starting field position of the night. They were able to capitalize on a 10-yard touchdown pass from Mason Nourse to Anthony Schuh. Delphos ended its ensuing drive with a punt after a 3-and-out. The Bearcats regained possession at the 30 but again could not get much going against the Jeffcat D. After a 3-and-out, the Wildcats received the Bearcat punt with 1:26 left in the half and three timeouts. They had to use one timeout after a sack by the Bearcat defense with 58 seconds left. The play following the timeout included a connection between Jettinghoff and Thompson, resulting in a 60-yard score. Jefferson’s defense contained the Spencerville offensive attack and sent the game to halftime with the Wildcats leading 21-7. Jefferson started the second half on

the 20, he headed toward the end zone, Jason Schultz made it 35-28 with 1:29 left. Hays made his final big play of the night when he recovered the onside kick at the Jays’ 48. One first down was all the hosts needed to run out the clock. The Jays will wait until the OHSAA releases its final computer rankings of the season Sunday to learn their fate for week 11. “I think we wore them down the second half. I have to give all the credit to the guys up front,” Schulte said. “Everyone we play keys on number 14 (Jettinghoff); Minster did tonight and we just told him to be patient, that it would come to him. Nick is running the option better each week and Luke gives us a third weapon. Even though we are not a passing team, we made some big plays there, too. Outside of one penalty and one turnover the first half, we were very efficient offensively.” The Jays opened the contest with an 11-play drive that traveled from the 28 to the Minster 9 but on 4th-and-3, Jettinghoff was stopped a yard short of the first down. Minster replied with a 4-play drive to get on the board, At the 25, Sam Dues (13 rushes, 129 yards) took a handoff up the middle and once he broke the traffic at the line of scrimmage, he raced all the way to the house. Schultz added the conversion for a 7-0 edge with 4:14 showing in the first period. The Jays replied with an even faster 2-play, 58-yarder. After Jettinghoff ran for three to put the pigskin at the 45, MacLennan (13 rushes, 124 yards) took a handoff inside left guard, tore through the hole and didn’t stop until the end zone. Wrasman’s kick was no good, leaving the score 7-6, Minster, with 3:15 showing in the opener. Minster’s next drive started at the 20 and ended up — four plays later — on a 4th-and-4 at the Jays’ 32 that saw a Nixon incompletion. The Jays marched from the 32 to the Wildcat 30 in six plays but a fumble on play seven was recovered by Hayden Schindler, setting up the visitors at the 34. Four plays later at the St. John’s 29, Nixon faked a running play, turned and fired for A.J. Huelsman behind the defense for the six. Schultz made it 14-7 with 8:47 left in the half. The Blue and Gold went on a clock-eating (7:17) 15-play drive to tie it up. Nick Martz (5-of-5 passing, 60 yards; 15 rushes, 53 yards) hit Any May for 14 and Jettinghoff for seven, The rest of the plays were on the ground, including the culminator from the Minster 5 — a burst off left guard by Jettinghoff. Martz ran in the 2-pointer for a 14-14 tie with 1:30 left in the half. That left too much time for Minster — running the no-huddle offense the entire game — as they marched 69 yards in eight plays. Nixon, who was 4-of-6 passing on the drive (47 yards), finished it off with a 13-yard connection to Eli Wolf in the left corner of the end zone with 20 ticks left. Schultz made it 21-14 at the half. “Our defensive staff, led by Coach (Steve) Recker, made some subtle adjustments at the half. They were moving the ball on us the first half and it was a matter of putting ourselves in better position,” Schulte added.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report! CENTRAL OHIO Hoover Reservoir (Delaware/Franklin counties) - Crappies are starting their fall feed. Fishing coves and around woody cover can be productive; jigs and minnows suspended by a bobber is a good technique. Catfish are still being caught in the north end; use shrimp, nightcrawlers or prepared baits for the best catches. Saugeye are starting to get active; troll spinners and crank baits along points and across flats leading to deeper water. Keep the baits very close to the bottom; early morning and evening bites can be good. Rush Creek Lake (Fairfield County) - Channel catfish can be caught in this lake east of Lancaster; use cut shad, shrimp or nightcrawlers fished in the east or south ends for best results. Bluegill are providing some action around cover in the east end; use wax or red worms under a bobber. Largemouth bass are also being caught here; these must be 15 inches or longer to keep. The lake contains a nice population of crappies greater than 10 inches. 10-HP limit on lake. NORTHWEST OHIO Upper Sandusky Reservoir #2 (Wyandot County) - Located on the southeast edge of Upper Sandusky on CR 60, largemouth bass should be biting at this 118-acre reservoir. The shoreline consists of rocks, a wetland shelf and sand beach area, which all provide a lot of cover; try along the west side, as well as in the standing timber. There is a boat ramp and dock but boats are restricted to electric motors only. The reservoir closes at 10 p.m. Pleasant Hill Reservoir (Richland/Ashland County line) - With 781 acres of water and 13 miles of shoreline located next to Mohican State Forest, 2 miles southwest of Perrysville, this site has plenty to offer. The boat ramp and marina are located on Covert Road, right off SR 95. Crappie have been biting as the water temperatures cooled; good numbers from 9-10 inches can be found. Try fishing the deeper southeast section of the lake. NORTHEAST OHIO Portage Lakes (Summit County) - Largemouth bass are growing here — and most likely in lakes statewide — for the upcoming winter. With a warm front pushing through, action should pick up this week as fish should be actively feeding; anglers are doing well fishing blade baits, jerk baits and crank baits. There have also been some anglers targeting crappie from shore that have had some success. They have focused their efforts on near shore structure; minnows and small soft plastics with jigs under a bobber have provided the most consistent bite. Wingfoot Lake (Portage County) - This site has helped many anglers put some fillets in the fryer and freezer. Good numbers of crappie and perch are being caught by anglers; successful anglers are reporting that the majority caught are biting on a plan hook with a minnow under a float. Combining a minnow with a jig and soft plastic or fishing just the jig with the soft plastic has seemed to slow the bite. SOUTHEAST OHIO Lake Logan (Hocking County) - The cooler fall temperatures will trigger bass to move back into shallow water areas as they prepare for winter at this 333-acre lake; try white buzzbaits and spinner baits. Good-size saugeye can be caught on a variety of baits, including rubber worms, floating minnows, minnows on the bottom, chrome or silver-colored stick baits, or trolling worm harnesses; mud or sand flats are good areas to explore, as well as shoreline areas with riprap. Seneca Lake (Guernsey/Noble counties) - The cooler temperatures will help anglers looking for crappie, bluegill and white bass. Fish minnows under a slip bobber or with jigs over submerged structure throughout; submerged structure is marked along the shoreline with florescent paint on nearby trees. Maps including the location of submerged structure are available by calling the District Four office at (740) 589-9930; a 9-inch minimum length limit for crappie is in effect on this 3,508-acre lake.

Most of us did a decent job last week. Guest Picker No. 1, Marc Smith, crushed us all into 1 million corpuscles with his 11-1 stretch (6-0 college, 5-1 pros). Regular Dave Boninsegna was next at 10-2 (5-1, 5-1) to improve his mark to 55-41 (27-21, 28-20). I continue to piddle around and get nowhere at 8-4 — 3-3 in college (OK, I threw away the Stanford and Texas A & M games!) and 5-1 in the pros for a putrid 55-41 (28-20, 27-21). Regular Bob Weber was 7-5 (5-1, 2-4) and now stands at 62-34 — 35-13 and 27-21. The other GP, Nancy Spencer, ended up 5-6 (3-3, 2-3). JIM METCALFE COLLEGE: MICHIGAN STATE: Two teams that despise each other. It comes down to turnovers: Michigan has them and Sparty doesn’t. GEORGIA: Two disappointing teams. Georgia starting to get people back; Gators getting more beat up. TEXAS TECH: Could be 150 points scored in this one. Give Red Raiders the edge in Lubbock. FLORIDA STATE: A smart friend of mine (who wants to be nameless) says pick Seminoles in this one but ’Canes in the rematch. Good enough for me! ARIZONA: Golden Bears are struggling, while Wildcats seem on the rise. Could be a good one but go with the roadies. GEORGIA TECH: Threw this one in to disrupt people! Rambling Wreck’s option hard to defend with only a week of prep. PRO: CAROLINA: Disappointing Falcons invade rising Panthers. Trend continues in Carolina Sunday. SAN DIEGO: Will real RGIII step up? Probably not. Is Philip Rivers for real? Yep. CLEVELAND: Maybe Jason Campbell not that bad under center. Browns’ defense certainly makes life tough for Mr. Flacco. GREEN BAY: Bears’ defense depleted; so is offense. Packers win in nasty MondayNighter. ST. LOUIS: Rams’ scared bejeebers out of Seahawks Monday night. Tuxedoes aren’t as good as ’Hawks. OAKLAND: Are Raiders actually not that bad? Yes. ——DAVE BONINSEGNA College: Michigan: Michigan heads into East Lansing on the tails of a bye week. Much as I hate it, Michigan gets the win in the “big brother vs. little brother” game. Florida: Georgia is a mess; Florida will roll in this one.
offense. It didn’t take long for them to get hot again. They picked up five first downs on 15 plays and used up over half the time in the third stanza, capping off the drive with a 3-yard touchdown run from Buzard on fourth down to up the lead to 28-7 after Wollenhaupt’s kick. The Spencerville offense possessed the ball for the remainder of the third quarter and continued its drive from the 25 of the Wildcats to start the fourth. The Bearcats found the end zone for the second time on a Nourse pass to Zach Goecke from the 6, reducing the Wildcat lead to 28-14. “There were a lot of bright spots for us this season; I’m very proud of our seniors this year. Now we need to get ready for next year’s off-season; we played a lot of young guys and will have some new holes to fill,” commented Spencerville Coach John Zerbe. Jefferson gained control of the ball at their own 30 after the Spencerville kickoff. They continued to eat up the clock by attacking the Spencerville defense with a healthy dosage of rushes and first downs, with Jettinghoff finishing the drive by hitting Thompson in the corner of the end zone over the top of the Spencerville secondary from 15 yards out, extending the lead to a commanding 35-14 score. The Bearcats went to their hurry-up offense with time running out, scoring with 2:45 left on a Schuh 12-yard run and adding the extra point by Logan Vandemark. Spencerville was forced to kick and recovered at midfield. They were backed up to their own 43 after third down due to a personal foul — also a loss of down — and Jefferson regained possession after an incomplete pass. Jefferson entered the victory formation with a minute left and kneeled the clock out, sealing the win and a share of the NWC title. “I was very proud of our guys tonight; they were resilient and bounced back after last week and came out here and got the job done. I’m proud for these kids bringing home a share of the NWC title for the first time since 2001,” commented victorious Jefferson Coach Bub Lindeman.

The GPS now stand at 102-76 (51-38, 51-38). Due to a technical glitch, I will only have one GP this week: you know him as Larry Heiing, correspondent for The Herald, but we know him as Larry Heiing! Here are the Games: College: Michigan at Michigan State; Georgia vs. Florida at Gator Bowl; Oklahoma State at Texas Tech; Miami at Florida State; Arizona at California; Pittsburgh at Georgia Tech. NFL: Atlanta at Carolina; San Diego at Washington; Baltimore at Cleveland; Chicago at Green Bay (Monday); Tennessee at St. Louis; Philadelphia at Oakland. FLORIDA – Gators will prevail with their defense. TEXAS TECH – Looking for the Red Raiders to bounce back from their recent loss to the Sooners. FLORIDA STATE – The Seminoles may be the best team I’ve seen this year and QB James Winston is having a great year. ARIZONA – California can’t stop anyone on defense. GEORGIA TECH – My son plays for the Yellow Jackets (Defiance), so I’m going with Georgia Tech and the Yellow Jackets. NFL: CAROLINA – I’m probably going to be wrong here but I’m tired of picking the Falcons and them losing. SAN DIEGO – Phillip Rivers is just performing at a higher level right now than RGIII. CLEVELAND – Can I have both teams lose (Editor’s Note: they can tie!!)? The score may end up 6-3; however, going with the home squad in this one. GREEN BAY – Simply Monday Night Football and Aaron Rodgers – Packers will prevail. TENNESSEE – The bad week for St. Louis teams will continue Sunday. OAKLAND – The Eagles are a mess and the Raiders continue to find enough offense behind Pryor to win some games this year. ——— LARRY HEIING College: Michigan State: I hate even thinking about the team up north, let alone 2 of them! Michigan will be without bruising tight end A.J. Williams, plus Michigan State has only allowed 3 points in its last two games. Michigan State by 17. Georgia: Both teams have had disappointing seasons so far. The Bulldogs are averaging better through the air and the ground than the Gators. Georgia by 10. Texas Tech: The Red Raiders are averaging 412 yards passing; Oklahoma State has only turned the ball over 10 times and may have found a running game. Pick passing over rushing-Texas Tech by 20. Florida State: Game of the weekend-the #3 Seminoles vs the Miami Hurricanes at #7. Miami needed 2 fourth-quarter scores to defeat Wake Forrest; Florida State has won its last 3 games by 63, 37 and 32 points and continues to roll by 21. Arizona: California has only one win this season and injuries have taken their toll on the offense. Arizona by 24. Georgia Tech: Pittsburgh’s offense has struggled during the 2013 season. Georgia Tech’s defense is giving up less than 20 points per game. Defense wins again-Tech by 28. Pro: Carolina: Cam Newton and the Panthers are on a roll. Meanwhile, the Falcons are 0-3 on the road this year. Carolina continues to roll by 21. San Diego: Phillip Rivers has the best completion rate in the NFL this year at 74%. RG3, on the other hand, is only at 59%. The score will be ugly with the Chargers winning by 24. Cleveland: As a Browns fan, I have to go with Cleveland. Hopefully Jason Campbell can play as well as he did against Kansas City; if Davone Bess can catch a few passes and not fumble, the Browns will beat their rival by 10. Green Bay: Monday Night Football at Lambeau Field; the Packers seems to bring their A-game when playing under the national spotlight. The one stat that stands out is that the Cheeseheads have won 20 of the last 22 games against NFC opponents. Green Bay wins by 14. Tennessee: The Rams lost Sam Bradford for the season and as a result didn’t score a touchdown on MNF but the defense held high-powered Seattle in check. The Titans will be wearing patches to honor their former owner who passed away and win by 3. Oakland: The up-tempo offense of the Eagles seems to be figured out, Michael Vick has been nursing a sore hamstring and his backups aren’t making the offense click. Former Ohio State QB Terrell Pryor doesn’t have the greatest arm but his legs can scramble. Raiders run all over the Eagles by 14.

Florida State: No longer the big game. Florida State well above Miami; they dominate on Saturday. Arizona: This should be no contest for Arizona; they go into Cal and POUND. Georgia Tech: Tech is on a 2-game winning streak after dropping three in a row; Pitt is back and forth. Tech gets win number three in a row. NFL: Carolina: Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers are rolling; the same can’t be said for Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons. Panthers have won three in a row and make it four on Sunday. San Diego: The San Diego Chargers emerge from a bye in search of their first 3-game winning streak in almost two years. The Chargers beat a struggling ‘Skins team. Baltimore: The Ravens have beaten the Browns 11 games in a row and 12 after Sunday. Green Bay: Prepared to play without two of their leaders, the Bears try to end a 6-game losing streak to their archrivals; however, the Packers beat the quarterback-less Bears. St. Louis: The Tennessee Titans feel confident returning QB Jake Locker can play a key role in their bid to end a 5-year playoff drought. Although both teams are battling, I am taking the Rams to win at home. Oakland: The Oakland Raiders are hoping to make a push toward the playoffs; the Philadelphia Eagles are having trouble producing any offense at all after a hot start. The Raiders should be able to beat Foles and the Eagles. ——BOB WEBER College: MICHIGAN STATE – One team (Wolverines) can score points but give up just as many. The other team (Spartans) struggle to score but teams also struggle to score against them. Anytime I can root against the Maize and Blue – I will.

Delphos Optimist volleyball tournament results
The Delphos Optimists held their eighth annual Fifth- and Sixth-Grade Volleyball tournament in the St. John’s All Saints building Oct. 25-27. There were 17 teams from the surrounding area participating, with close to 200 girls playing. With some spectacular volleys, the sponsors determined winners. The sixth grade was a hard-fought weekend with teams playing 18 games in order to determine winners. The Jefferson sixth grade (top left) took first place (15-3) and the St. John’s Team Hays (top right) took second (14-4). The fifth grade, while only playing 12 games each, was split into two pools with winners from each pool taking first place. Pool 1 winner – St. John’s Team Rider (middle left) at 11-1 ; Pool 2 winner — Columbus Grove White (middle right). The Optimists also sponsored a Sportsmanship Award that goes to one team in each grade. This award is provided to the team, its fans and performance which best exemplifies the Optimist Creed. This year’s award went to St. Charles (bottom left) for fifth grade and Shawnee (bottom right) for sixth grade. (Submitted photos)

The Herald – 9
By Bernice Bede Osol
what you have to offer will change the way you think. An opportunity to do something that counts and to make a difference is within reach. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you juggle things around to get the most for the least, it will pay off in the end. Change is good, but only if you can stay within your budget. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2013 Strength comes from knowledge and belief in your ability to get things done in the coming month. Expressing what you want will initiate a positive flow of energy. Exploring different cultures and philosophies will hone your intuition. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you share your plans, you will attract interest in your ideas. Looking at old concepts from a modern point of view will renew your interest and refresh your energy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Think ahead today. Once you say something, you cannot take it back. Anger and aggressive behavior will cause uncertainty. Concentrate on making positive changes in your personal life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your dedication will not go unnoticed. Spend some time figuring out the best way to display your attributes in order to boost your confidence and help you win favors from the right people. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Don’t share your secrets. If people question you, offer what is common knowledge and impress upon them your ability to be a team player. A romantic encounter will lift your spirits. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -You will have insight that will give you the upper hand when negotiating or discussing plans that can affect your position professionally or financially. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Put your word on the line. Make promises and show everyone what you are capable of doing. Form a secret connection with someone who has something to offer in return. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Stubbornness can hold you back. Open up and share your thoughts with someone who shows interest in helping you. Larger quarters or home improvements will add to your comfort. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It’s time to take a risk with your heart. Ask direct questions and find out where you stand. A change of attitude may be unexpected but essential in order to take care of business. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Your head will be swimming with all sorts of neat ideas. Don’t be afraid to step out on a limb and do something differently. Your imagination will capture someone’s attention. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t count on everyone agreeing with you. Persuasive tactics aren’t likely to work as well as expected. Set your sights on the things you can master, and travel to destinations that interest you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have a lot going for you, so don’t let negativity stand between you and success. Engage in talks and activities that lead to growth and happiness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- How you handle your money will make a difference in the outcome of a relationship. Bringing in more than you spend or doing a little creative accounting will help alleviate stress. DISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL UCLICK FOR UFS
HI AND LOIS
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2013 You can handle more than you think. Indulge in activities that will help you gain insight into how you can make life better for those around you. You can be a hero if you take on a challenge. Your relentless courage will raise your profile. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Your intentions are good, and your desire to make a difference will bring you to a place filled with opportunity, adventure and great connections. Follow your heart. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Good intentions may be based on false information. Carry out your due diligence before you get involved in something that isn’t likely to lead to riches. Keep life simple and cost-effective. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You will not be disappointed in the results if you make significant alterations at home or mount a campaign to improve your professional position. Success is within reach. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Be strong and stand up to anyone trying to make decisions for you. Strive for self-improvement by showing doubters that you know what you are doing. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -It’s time to stop procrastinating and start getting down to brass tacks. You’ll attract attention, followers and support if you believe in your abilities and focus on your goals. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Past problems will resurface if you neglected to handle them properly. Be ready to do what’s necessary so that you can move forward and excel. Don’t make the same mistake twice. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Spend time with a friend or loved one. This is a great day to form important bonds by taking part in joint ventures. Exploring a new destination will be enlightening. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Explore information that can help you fare better at work. Take a pass on an offer that is too good to be true. The only path to success lies in hard work. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Get back to basics and enjoy life’s little pleasures. Less stress and more fun should be your aim, along with spending time with the people you love most. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be a participant in all that life offers today. Get out and network, but most of all, don’t linger at home, where you are likely to meet with disapproval or complaints. Do something that makes you happy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Travel and the opportunity to share
