... an Ohio State University Band member
BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor egebert@timesbulletin.com COLUMBUS — For five years now, Tim Hoverman has been a part of the Ohio State University Marching Band. The band itself is taking on more of a celebrity lately, being featured on the Today Show and others, while videos of the halftime performances are sweeping the Internet. From a group of 300-400 musicians trying out, 225 are selected to be a part of The Best Damn Band in the Land, as it is known. Not all of those march at halftime, just 192 get that honor. Those 192 work hard to get new shows prepared for each home game. The routine takes some getting used to. “By my fifth, year it has gotten easier, mostly because I know what’s going on,” Hoverman reported. He stated that each person wanting to be a part of the band must try out, although those who have been a member in the past have a natural advantage to get in, thanks to the experience factor. Hoverman’s experience includes 35-40 shows he has had to learn in the past five years. “Some shows are more difficult than others,” he revealed. “We need to be able to do them in 10 hours (of rehearsal time) so sometimes a pro-

gram is made a little less intricate.” Band members rehearse MondayFriday from 4-6 p.m. to get the next show ready. Prior to 2013, each player would get cards showing where he or she would be in each formation. This year, they are provided with an app that allows them insight and instruction on how to get to that next position. See OSU, page 10

37th annual Delphos Community Christmas Project underway
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — It’s that time of year when Delphos residents give of themselves and look to spur some holiday magic within the community. Thirty-seven years ago, Marie Dorman inspired locals to look beyond their own families and holiday traditions to embrace those less fortunate by donating time, money, new toys and clothing. Each year, the Delphos Community Christmas Project assists local families and children living in the city school district with making their Christmas special. Project Coordinator Edna Fischer said her passion for the project is partially due to her love of Christmas — she grew up experiencing a huge family Christmas celebration. In addition, as a school nurse, she saw some students coming back from Christmas break with nothing to share with classmates — no new clothes or toys. “The holiday is a big deal for everybody,” she insisted. “I wanted to do whatever I could so they did not have to come back to school with nothing.” She said this year, Delphos will see a greater need with the Reser’s Fine Foods and I & K closures. “Be an angel and take a soldier off of the tree,” Fischer said with compassion. Fischer said that she and Bev Cross-McNeal interview each family and find out the children’s specific needs; clothing size and toy and/or game preferences. “Interviews began on Nov. 1,” she said. “We will help as many families as we can.” In 2012, the community-driven project made the Christmas wishes of 145 families and 351 kids a reality. In addition, organizations, individuals and high school students donated funds and/ or time to prepare and deliver 150 fruit plates to home bound seniors, 110 food boxes with $100 food gift cards and 153 pairs of shoes. Donated used Christmas trees, which are restored and tested by Brad Hoenbrink, and new lights and ornaments to accompany the tree, are always needed to fulfill the list of holiday items families are looking for. Last year, 19 families had the opportunity to choose a Christmas tree with new lights and ornaments and take it home to display for the holiday. “Kids get so excited when a Christmas tree goes up,” Fischer said. Fischer said the man who refurbished and donated used bicycles for the project retired this past summer. She said she would like to find another individual who can and wants to fill that role. Businesses and individuals have already committed to donating eight new bicycles to the project. Any remaining funds left after Christmas will be used for larger item purchases like beds, mattresses, box springs, frames and bedding; large appliances; baby cribs; bedroom furniture; and gift cards.

Geier recalls ‘rite of passage’
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — When Bob Geier took on the Marbletown paper route in 1941, he was 13 years old and he, like all new carriers, experienced the ‘rite of passage’; he was thrown into the canal for his initiation into the group. He said that all the carriers had a good time and were very ornery. “Everyone got thrown into the canal,” Geier stated. “I was the smallest kid passing papers and got thrown into the canal twice. I walked home with frozen clothes on.” See GEIER, page 10

For The Record FROM THE
ARCHIVES
One Year Ago Due to the catastrophic damage caused by Superstorm Sandy on the East Coast, the Delphos Veterans Council, VFW and American Legion are spearheading a project to bring relief supplies to residents of one of the stricken areas. The VFW and American Legion have already donated $500 each. The VFW is willing to receive all donations for the project with a preference for clothing and nonperishable items. 25 Years Ago – 1988 Ottoville Senior Citizens Social Club recently held a short business meeting and card party in the Veteran of Foreign Wars social rooms. President Albert Wieging conducted the meeting with 19 members in attendance. Lunch was served and card winners in pinochle were Mary Louise Schimmoeller high and Josephine Bockrath second. In euchre, Marcella Blankmeyer was first with Hilda Pittner second. The November meeting of Limited Edition Ohio Child Conservation League was recently held at the home of Cindy Becker with Diane Knippen co-hostess. Members were asked to bring used toys to the December meeting for Helping Hands. The Christmas meeting will be held Dec. 7 at the home of Mary Ann Clementz. Elida Garden Club members made plans and received assignments for working at the bazaar Nov. 12 in the Lima Mall. Mrs. Roy Wright was chosen to arrange the entry for the Christmas tree festival at the Allen County Museum. Mrs. Howard Leis was chairman for the tour to Foellinger-Freiman Botanical conservatory, Fort Wayne. 50 Years Ago – 1963 Two surprised construction workers turned over a cement slab that has served for years as part of a rear walk at the office of Dr. Morgan, dentist, at the corner of Third and Canal Tuesday, and discovered the “slab” was a 91-year-old tombstone. Tom Cross and Nile Noffsinger, and Francis Sterling were at work preparing to place a new foundation under the building when they found the tombstone. The program at the Rotary Club weekly meeting Wednesday at NuMaude’s Restaurant was based on the 1963 Miss America contest. Twenty colored slides showing the contestants and ceremonies incident to this nationwide contest were shown. The program was obtained by Roger Hoverman, who was program chairman for the day. Psi Chapter, Alpha Delta Omega National Sorority, met this week in the home of Mrs. Robert Schuerman and completed plans for the coming dessert smorgasbord and card party, which will be held Nov. 13 at Franklin School. The program for the evening was presented by Mrs. Dean Mollenkoph.

Jan. 25, 1922-Nov. 6, 2013 Mary Catherine Long Burgner, 91, of Lima, passed away at 3:20 a.m. Wednesday at St. Rita’s Medical Center. No more suffering, no more pain she has gone to be with her savior, Jesus Christ. Born on Jan. 25, 1922, in Roundhead, Hardin County, she was the daughter of the late Ernest Glen and Ilo Virginia ‘Young’ Vermillion. She was a graduate of Lima Central High School. She met (on a blind date) Doyle R. Long. They were married by the Rev. J. V. Stone on Nov. 2, 1941, just days before World War II began. She and her new husband eventually took up residence on the Long family farm along the Auglaize River, east of Delphos, where they farmed and raised their children. Doyle preceded her in death on Jan. 19, 1970. On Jan. 14, 1973, she and Walter C. Burgner of Lima were married by the Rev. Leonard W. Mann at the Trinity United Methodist Church. He survives in Lima. During her working career, she was a waitress; a homemaker; worked at Pangles Master Market; and a secretary at Fruehauf Corp., from which she retired. She served as President of the Jefferson Band Mothers and was a Girl Scout leader in the late 1950s, early 1960s. She was an excellent seamstress making clothes for her husband, her children, her daughters’ dolls and her daughter’s wedding. She always supported all her children in all their endeavors. She could wallpaper better than any professional and during her retired years, she assisted her husband, Walter, with maintaining their rental apartments. She and Walter attended Lima Technical College/Rhoades State College, traveled back and forth to Florida as “Snowbirds,” eventually settling in Sarasota at Whitfield Estates for a few years. Because of health concerns, they moved back to Lima. She enjoyed making braided rugs and all through her 80s would sit on the floor braiding strips of cloth for them, getting up and down with the ease of someone much younger. Her children, grandchildren and friends now cherish her rug

creations. Also, with Walter’s help, she was able to search and create a maternal and paternal family history in genealogy. The Long genealogy is in the Delphos Public Library. She was a member of the First Families of Ohio; the First Families of Allen and Auglaize Counties, Ohio; the Suzanna Russell Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR); the Doctor Thomas Wynne Chapter of the National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century; and the Society of the Descendants of Washington’s Army at Valley Forge. Her ancestor, Francis Stevenson, was an early settler of Auglaize Township, Allen County, having built a cabin on Section 17 in 1829 and settling there in March 1830. Mary is also survived by children, Diane (Robert) George of Seaford, Dela., David (Pam) Long, DVM, of Eaton, Deborah (Mike) Gallmeier of Delphos and Dennis (Lisa) Long of Charlotte, N.C.; grandchildren, Denise (Eddie) Scarborough of Havre de Grace, Md., Cynthia Campisi of Forest Hill, Md., Joseph (Lisa) Campisi of Pylesville, Md., Lindsey (Karthik) Long, DVM, of Madison, Wis;, Deborah (Corey) Tuck of Lebanon, Jessie Long of Middletown, Shane (Brenda) Gallmeier of Delphos, Travis (Kristy) Gallmeier of Delphos, Kyle Gallmeier of Delphos, Jordan (Jenny) Long of Littleton, Colo., Joshua (Stephanie) Long of Huntersville, N.C., and Jacob Long and Jared (Laura) Long of Bainbridge, Ga.; greatgrandchildren, Bethany and James Scarborough of Havre de Grace, Logan, Issac, Alissa and Ava Gallmeier of Delphos, Adelyn Long of Charlotte, Parker Long of Littleton and Gemma Long of Bainbridge; and a stepgreatgranddaughter, Madelyn Jacobs. She was also preceded in death in 1975 by triplet grandchildren, Lisa, Bryan and Ryan Gallmeier. Mary was an only child and always said she gained her family when she married and had children. She will long be remembered by all who loved her. She was a second “Mom” to many of her children’s friends. She taught us all how to be strong and face the many ups and downs of life.

Carter Lumber closes in Van Wert
BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor news@delphosherald.com VAN WERT — Many were shocked Friday to see the gates of Carter Lumber in Van Wert chained far past opening time. A release from company headquarters provided the explanation. The store had been closed as part of what was called a consolidation. “In order to support our growth, we have also consolidated some smaller market stores, reallocated business to other stores in our company, or pulled out of markets that would not be able to support our future growth. With this in mind, effective November 1, we will be consolidating the following 26 stores…” read the release. What followed was a list of 26 cities where the company was shutting down operations. Indeed, a banner draped across the gate at the Van Wert location encouraged potential customers to visit the store in Columbus Grove. Among the cities losing a Carter Lumber were Van Wert, Celina, Hillsboro, Clyde, Eaton, Kenton, and other locations around Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and a few other states. “With these consolidations, we expect less than 30 full time positions to be lost. By consolidating these markets, it will enable us to better support our growth, increase market share and expand into new markets,” read the Carter Lumber statement. Company president Jeff Donley added, “Carter Lumber is a forward thinking, financially stable company. Our founder W.E. Carter believed that if you surround yourself with good people and treat employees and customers like family, you

Senate OKs restrictions for absentee ballots
COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio Senate has passed a bill restricting who can send unsolicited absentee ballot applications to the swing state’s voters and for what election years. The proposal would allow only the secretary of state to mail the applications for general elections and only if the Legislature sets aside money for it. But he would be permitted to send them next year without the General Assembly allotting the money. Other public officials would be barred from mailing unsolicited applications. Senators approved the bill on a 22-11 vote Wednesday, sending it to the House. Last year, Secretary of State Jon Husted sent unsolicited applications to roughly 6.9 million voters statewide for the first time. He’s stressed the need for uniformity. In the past, only certain counties chose to distribute the applications.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Opponents of Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s privatized jobs agency said Wednesday the state’s Constitution will be left defenseless if their politically diverse coalition is not granted standing to proceed with its constitutional challenge. In oral arguments before the Ohio Supreme Court, a lawyer for the liberal policy group ProgressOhio and two Democratic lawmakers who brought the suit said the law creating JobsOhio contained almost insurmountable legal hurdles. That included a 90-day window to sue that closed before the office could have had any impact on a potential plaintiff. “It appears as though nobody has standing if the plaintiffs here do not have standing, and this causes judicial review to evaporate in instances like this,” attorney Maurice Thompson of the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law told the court. Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor appeared skeptical: “So you’re saying by virtue of the fact you pulled the trigger (and sued JobsOhio), that gives you standing?” State attorney Stephen Carney argued that plenty of parties had a legitimate right to sue JobsOhio, they just chose not to. He argued those with standing must have an individual stake in the case, not be pursuing generalized “public interest.” Those with a stake include public employees who might have been harmed as state development functions began to be handed over to the private entity in 2011, or bondholders and liquor dealers affected by the transfer of Ohio’s spiritous liquor business to fund the entity, he said.

will be successful. By sticking to this simple business philosophy, we are well positioned for the long term growth of the company.” In the release, the company noted that they have transitioned from a traditional lumberyard to a professional lumberyard, going from $500 million to $1 billion. The company has opened outlets in larger markets during the past 18 years, including Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, and Baltimore. “Sometimes, we make this business too complicated”, said Senior Vice President of Field Operations Kip Gleckler. “Look at the markets, pick the best location and hire talented people to service the customer. It’s that simple, it’s not like we’re saving lives, we’re just shipping lumber and we need to do it better than anyone else.”

Ohio State presidential search could top $300,000
COLUMBUS (AP) — The search for the next president of Ohio State University is on track to cost more than $300,000, about a third of which is expenses for a one-day forum on the state of the college presidency. The search committee of university trustees met again Wednesday. A decision is expected early next year. The university has paid its executive headhunting firm about $151,000 to date with a final payment of at least $67,000 due when the search is completed, records show. And the bill for the university’s Aug. 30 “Symposium on the University Presidency” was $117,000, including hotel and travel costs for participants, appearance fees and $96,000 in advertising, according to figures provided to The Associated Press through a records request. “Who will lead America’s public universities in the 21st century?” said an $85,000 advertisement in the New York Times on Aug. 29. No tax or tuition dollars were spent on the event, university spokesman Gary Lewis said. “The symposium was one component of the university’s approach to help frame its search for a new president,” he said in an email. “Advertising the symposium was a key strategy to support our ability to reach and inform potential candidates and leaders about Ohio State’s search.” The university’s contract with Dallasbased head hunter R. William Funk and Associates calls for $200,000 plus expenses. It suggests the new president could be paid around $600,000 a year. Funk typically bases its fee on a third of the salary plus bonus for the position it’s filling, according to the contract. Former president Gordon Gee’s base salary after six years at the university was about $860,000. His total earnings, including benefits, retirement and deferred compensation, was about $2 million. Gee retired in July after remarks he made jabbing Roman Catholics, Notre Dame and Southeastern Conference schools were made public. A headhunting firm helps minimize risks, Jeffrey Wadsworth, an Ohio State trustee leading the search, said before Wednesday’s meeting. “You’re reducing your risk when you have experts who know the players, they

“It sets a short timeline, sure, but so do lots of statutes,” he said. So far in the 2011 lawsuit, lower courts have found that opponents lack standing to go forward with the underlying constitutional challenge. ProgressOhio challenges the publicprivate arrangement enjoyed by JobsOhio. Justice Paul Pfeifer questioned the state’s arguments Wednesday, saying the JobsOhio law seemed to erect a wall between citizens and the courthouse and the standing dispute is about finding a door in that wall. “The Legislature can’t tell the citizens of Ohio, ‘Well, we can do something so unconstitutional and if you don’t contest it and get a court to say it’s unconstitutional in 90 days, tough luck,’” Pfeifer said. Justice Judith French told Thompson she found ProgressOhio’s legal basis for standing unclear. “I don’t know where your argument starts,” she said. “I know where the state’s argument starts, because it starts with the Constitution.” Also watching the case is the conservative Ohio Roundtable, whose anti-slots lawsuit hinges on the justices’ decision on standing. The libertarian 1851 Center for Constitutional Law filed a supporting brief in the JobsOhio lawsuit. “What better plaintiffs could you have than those conservative, libertarian and progressive organizations that as a mission oppose corporate welfare and seek to enforce these corporate welfare limits in Ohio’s Constitution?” Thompson told reporters after arguments.

know the issues that those people have tackled,” said Wadsworth, president and CEO of Battelle Memorial Institute. Ohio State’s search costs are in keeping with the complexity of the job and the national profile of the university, said Jamie Ferrare, managing partner at the search division of the Association for Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges. In addition to its undergraduate academic programs and its high-profile sports teams, Ohio State also has a medical school and hospitals and professional schools for business, law and pharmacy, among many others. “It’s so broad and so big; it’s not a job for the meek and mild,” Ferrare said. “For someone to come in with that kind of experience, they need a search firm to attract the top people.” Headhunters are increasingly common in big-school searches. About one in three university presidents who were recruited before 1983 said a search consultant was used, according to a 2012 report by the American Council on Education on the college presidency. That percentage has nearly doubled for searches since 2007, the report said.

Delphos FFA named three star National Chapter; 4 receive American FFA Degrees
Information submitted LOUISVILLE — The largest gathering of FFA members recently took place and 10 Delphos FFA members were part of it. More than 57,000 members, parents and guests gathered for the National FFA Convention held Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Louisville, Ky. The purpose of this convention is to gather FFA members from across the nation to celebrate the achievements that have been made of the past year, broaden the horizons of members by exposing them to new places and motivate them to continue to reach their goals. Delphos FFA members boarded a charter bus on Wednesday morning with the Paulding, Wayne Trace and Lincolnview FFA chapters. The first stop was a tour of a Tyson Foods hog processing facility in Logansport, Ind., then toured Not Just Popcorn in Edinburgh, Ind., and finished the day attending the first general session of the 2013 National Convention highlighted by motivational speaker Rick Patino. On Thursday, the group toured Toyota Manufacturing plant in Georgetown, Ky., and also Kenneland Race Track in Lexington, Ky., and later that evening were entertained by Dr. Jim Wand a hypnotist. Friday morning, they attended the fourth general convention session highlighted by Joe Torillo a New York City Firefighter who survived 9-11 not once but twice being buried under both towers on that horrific day in history. He shared his life-changing experiences and had motivational words of wisdom. They also had the opportunity to visit the Career Show at Convention and that evening for recreation, they went to a go-kart track, laser

CAUV allows farmland to be taxed on agricultural production value
Ed Lentz, Hancock County Extension Educator wrote the following article on CAUV.

Members of the Delphos FFA attended the National photos) tagging, putt putt golf center and attended a rodeo. The Delphos FFA was also recognized as a three-star National Chapter, the highest ranking a chapter can earn at the national level. The American Degree Session was the highlight of Saturday morning. Four Delphos FFA members — Julie Noonan, Tim Pohlman, Austin Reindel and Lindzi Hoersten — were awarded their American Degree, which is the highest award a member can earn. This degree is given to only onehalf of one percent of the 590,000 members. They have completed all of the requirements through the FFA that enabled them to achieve this honor. They all have received their Greenhand, Chapter and State FFA degrees. They have been active members of the Delphos FFA chapter for five years, completed four years of systematic Agriculture Education Instruction, have productively invested $7,500, worked over 2,500 hours, above scheduled class time,

Current Agricultural Use Value (CAUV) is a real estate tax assessment program that allows farmland to be taxed on an agricultural production value rather than the full real estate market value. In most situations, CAUV results in a considerably lower property tax bill for owners of farmland compared to the market value rate. Current Agricultural Use Value has been in place for almost four decades. Landowners must meet one of the following requirements for three years prior to submitting an application to qualify for CAUV: — Ten or more acres must be devoted exclusively to commercial agricultural use; or — If less than 10 acres are devoted to commercial agricultural use, the farm must produce an average yearly gross income of at least $2,500. Agricultural use considers three definitions: — Commercial animal or poultry husbandry; aquaculture; beekeeping; the production for a commercial purpose of timber, field crops, tobacco, fruits, vegetables, nursery stock, ornamental trees, sod, flowers or the growth of timber for a noncommercial purpose (if the timber is contiguous to or part of land devoted to agricultural use). — Biodiesel production, biomass energy production, electric or heat energy production or biologically derived methane gas production if the land on which the production facility is located is contiguous to or part of land devoted to agricultural use. — Land devoted to and qualified for payments or other compensation under a land retirement or conservation program. The CAUV process considers farm income and expenses to determine taxes. Farm income takes into account yield levels for a given FFA Convention. (Submitted soil type (determined by the state), yield averages for previous years and crop price averages for previous years. Production costs include averages from previous years’ inputs such as seed, fertilizer, fuel oil, repairs, drying fuel and electricity costs, fuel for trucking, labor charges, and machinery and equipment charges based on Ohio State University’s Extension Crop Enterprise Budgets. These costs are fiveyear averages of farm inputs. CAUV are determined for a set number of years for each county, which is often referred to as a cycle. At the end of a cycle, farmland’s agricultural worth will be re-evaluated and a new CAUV will be established for the next cycle. Since crop prices have generally been much higher the last couple years, CAUV values have increased and thus the farm real estate tax bill is higher. Depending on the farm income and input costs of the previous years, CAUV adjustments may go up or down for the next cycle. More detailed information may be found in the Extension bulletin CDFS 1267 Current Agricultural Use Value Assessment in Ohio (ohioline.osu.edu/cd-fact/1267.html) and at the office websites of most county auditors. Pohlman How Is CAUV Calculated? A capitalization rate is needed to determine a parcel’s current worth to its owner or the rate at which net income is captured in value of the land to be taxed. The capitalization rate for CAUV purposes is based on: 1) the average Farm Credit Service rate on a loan amounting to 60 percent of assets, payable over 15 years, and 2) the previous five years’ average interest rate applied to the remaining 40 percent of assets in equity. With certain adjustments, this yields the capitalization rate before taxes. To illustrate, say a farm is found to have soils such that its typical cropping pattern is 50 percent corn and 50 percent soybeans. If the average yield per acre is 160 bushels of corn and 60 bushels of soybeans, the typical acre would have a projected yield of 80 bushels of corn and 30 bushels of soybeans. If over the previous five years, the average price of corn is $3 per bushel and the average price of soybeans is $8 per bushel, then the projected gross income for that acre would be $240 from corn and $240 from soybeans for a total of $480. If non-land production costs have been determined to be $300 Reindel per acre, this would yield a projected net income of $180 on that acre. as a Delphos FFA member If the capitalization rate is determined to be 10 percent, then the through a numerous amount agricultural use value of that acre is $180/.10=$1800. The agricultural of activities. value based on income may be compared to the current market value which may be $7,000 to $10,000. CAUV is still a deal for farm land because the tax on the income ($1,800) is still much lower than taxes based on the real market value. However, do not be surprised if your farm real tax bill is much higher during this cycle.

Bengals adapt to life without Atkins
By JOE KAY Associated Press CINCINNATI — Geno Atkins was in the Bengals’ locker room briefly Wednesday, moving slowly on crutches. He declined to answer questions about his torn knee ligament as he headed for a side door and home. It’s still too painful to discuss. Still a bit painful for the teammates who will miss him, too. The Bengals (6-3) will try to maintain their lead in the AFC North without their best defensive lineman. Atkins, an All-Pro tackle last season, leads the team with six sacks and is a disruptive force up the middle that Cincinnati already misses badly. “A friend,” defensive end Wallace Gilberry said. “A hell of a teammate. Hell of an athlete. I could go on for days.” They don’t have that much time. The Bengals have a chance to all but clinch their division in the next two weeks when they play at Baltimore (3-5) and host Cleveland (4-5). Backto-back wins would leave them with a daunting lead heading down the stretch. The Bengals reached the playoffs as a wild card each of the last two seasons. They haven’t won the division title since 2009. “Honestly we feel like

these next two weeks are the biggest of the season because of where we are in the division,” left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “We get an opportunity. These games can tilt things one way or the other.” Their biggest challenge is filling holes on a defense that has lost some of its best players in the last three weeks. Top cornerback Leon Hall is out for the season with a torn Achilles tendon. Middle linebacker Rey Maualuga missed a 22-20 overtime loss in Miami last Thursday with a concussion and an injured left knee. Atkins tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the first half of the loss at Miami, a significant setback to a line already missing end Robert Geathers for the season. “You can hear the rumbles of respect that our guys have for him,” Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said during a conference call on Wednesday. “I can imagine that it’s going to be a little different in there just because he is such a good player.” See BENGALS, page 7

Browns’ Little says he was choked by Ravens player Associated Press BEREA — Browns wide receiver Greg Little accused Ravens safety James Ihedigbo of choking him during a pileup in Cleveland’s 24-18 win Sunday. After a running play in the first quarter, Little found himself on his back at the bottom of a stack of players. He claimed Ihedigbo, who was on top of him, put his hands around his neck and choked him. Little was able to free himself from Ihedigbo’s grasp, popped to his feet and then flung the Baltimore player’s helmet, drawing a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. “I know the ref was saying, ‘Let go of his facemask,’ but he was choking me, so I’m not,” Little said. “There’s a thin line between football and just morals and I’m not going to let a guy spit in my face, choke me, (disrespect) my family or anything like that. It’s just how it is. I don’t have to say anything to the ref. “At that point, he’s crossed the line.” Little’s comments came after Ihedigbo spoke to reporters at the team’s training complex in Maryland on Wednesday and he was not asked about the incident. Little, who was later penalized for taunting Ihedigbo, said he doesn’t regret throwing the helmet and would do it again. “If you’re going to take the game of football to where he took it to, I’ll meet you there,” Little added. The Little-Ihedigbo altercation was the second major incident between the Browns and Ravens this season. In Week 2, Browns nose tackle Phil Taylor accused Ravens running back Ray Rice of spitting in his face. Little insists he didn’t yank Ihedigbo’s helmet off. “I was pushing him off of me and it popped off,” Little explained. “The refs were pulling him off me and him still trying to choke me and it popped off.” NFL spokesman Corry Rush reported

all plays are reviewed and if there is any discipline, it will come later this week. Little said if he gets fined, he hopes Ihedigbo does, too. Following the game, Ihedigbo took a verbal swipe at Little. “He’s just trying to be a tough guy,” Ihedigbo said after the Browns ended their 11-game losing streak to Baltimore. “Some guys that aren’t tough try to prove that they are tough.” Little smirked when he was told about the comment. “I’m going to hold back on what I really want to say,” Little added. “I’m pretty sure we’ll play again and if he feels like I’m not tough he knows where to find me. “He’s far from tough. Believe it.” John Moffitt walks away from NFL, $1 million ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — John Moffitt wasn’t unhappy with a lack of playing time in Denver. He quit the NFL because he’d lost his love for the game and was tired of risking his health. The third-year guard from Wisconsin called the Broncos from his home in Seattle this week to notify them he wouldn’t be returning to the team following its bye. Then he announced on Twitter that he was calling it a career, saying, “Football was fun but my head hurts-haha kidding roger goodell. I’m on to new things, thanks to everyone along the way!!!” The Broncos put him on their reserve/ left team list on Tuesday when they activated center J.D. Walton from the physically unable to perform list. They have five days to formally release Moffitt, who left more than $1 million on the table, including about $312,500 for the remainder of this season and $752,500 in non-guaranteed salary in 2014. Moffitt, who signed a 4-year contract for nearly $3 million after Seattle made

NFL Round Up

him the 75th overall draft pick in 2011, said he knows teammates and fans don’t understand how he could forgo the fame and fortune of pro football. “I just really thought about it and decided I’m not happy. I’m not happy at all,” Moffitt told The Associated Press in a phone interview from Seattle. “And I think it’s really madness to risk your body, risk your well-being and risk your happiness for money. “Everybody, they just don’t get it and they think it’s crazy. But I think what I was doing is crazy.” He said he didn’t want to see things through this season for the shot at a Super Bowl. “I don’t care about the Super Bowl. I don’t,” Moffitt insisted. “I used to. I mean, anytime I played this game, I gave my heart to it and I’m a person that does thing with his heart. … I don’t need the Super Bowl experience. I played in great stadiums and I played against great players. And I had that experience and it’s enough.” The Broncos acquired Moffitt on Aug. 20 from the Seahawks after he’d lost out on one of two starting guard spots in Seattle during training camp. He played in two games for the Broncos (7-1). Moffitt, 27, made about $1.8 million before taxes in his 2½ seasons in the NFL. “I’ve saved enough. It’s not like I’m sitting here and I’m a millionaire,” he continued. “That’s what I kind of realized. I’m sitting here and I got to this point and I was like, what is the number that you need? How much do you really need? What do you want in life? And I decided that I don’t really need to be a millionaire. See NFL, page 7

This is no laughing matter for the NFL
By JIM METCALFE Sports Editor jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com I don’t know what to think about the recent revelations of bullying by Richie Incognito against Miami Dolphins’ teammate Johnathan Martin. You really don’t want to think it happens in the National Football League — or for that matter, any other professional league — amongst what should be a locker room of mutual respect and dignity. At the same time, perhaps that’s part of the problem: the closed atmosphere of the locker room where you don’t talk about it. Remember the old maxim: what happens in (insert whatever you want: the locker room, Las Vegas, etc.) stays in that same place. You would think that it wouldn’t happen at that level, with everything these men go through to get to this point. Perhaps, though, with the culture of toughness that football engenders, if a player shows ANY weakness — real or perceived — he is dead meat in that medium. In their warped minds, he has “brought” it on himself. Plus, most players — especially rookies — don’t have a support system and they don’t know how to handle it. To admit it would be a sign of “weakness”, so they suffer in silence. I am hoping that this is truly an isolated case but with what is coming out now, that seems to be Whistlin’ Dixie. This needs to be dealt with, especially when you allegedly threaten a teammate.

Bengals
(Continued from page 6) The Bengals signed defensive tackle Kheeston Randall to fill Atkins’ roster spot on Tuesday. Randall was the Dolphins’ seventh-round pick last year and played in 12 games. He was waived by Miami on Aug. 31. They’ll work others into the middle of the line rotation as well. Tackle Brandon Thompson, a second-year player from Clemson, will get much more time in Atkins’ spot. Thompson played in only three games last season but has played in all nine this year. “I think it was very beneficial to just be able to sit back and learn from those great defensive linemen we have, just to sit back and take a whole year and soak everything in,” Thompson said. “I was a sponge last year. I learned so much. I just thank those guys for that.” The Bengals had fewer injuries than average in the opening weeks, but have been hit hard lately. With the injuries piling up, coach Marvin Lewis showed his team some statistics about Super Bowl champions overcoming injuries. “You look at the last four or five Super Bowl champions and the amount of people that went on (injured reserve), and they’ve overcome it,” Lewis said. “You look at those teams, and those teams put double-digit numbers of players on injured reserve. “And their leadership of the team, the maturity of the team, it all plays out.” Coordinator Mike Zimmer has a reputation for being able to plug newcomers into the defense quickly without having the overall performance suffer. “I guess that’s his calling card,” safety Chris Crocker said. “He can put in other guys and have them play together and find a way to win. The biggest part is putting somebody in there who knows what to do. “Everybody’s athletically gifted and talented. But at this point in the season when you bring in somebody new, you just have to be up to speed on what to do. If you get them to do that, that’s 60 to 70 percent of the battle. We’ll be fine.”

That cannot be justified as a “prank” or a “joke.” As far as Mr. Incognito goes, when a guy fights his own teammates and does other questionable things — he did even at Nebraska before being kicked off the team — you have to wonder why he keeps getting a chance. What bothers me is that some of his teammates were quoted as saying what a great guy he is, how funny he is, how he was just being Richie, how everybody loves him, how great he is, how they love playing at his side, he’s just intense, etc. Most agree he is a dirty player; even he has admitted to that in the recent past. Perhaps the NFL needs to take a long, hard look at itself, the fact that these — well — bullies/thugs/ whatever you term them continue to get jobs. Would that happen for you or I in our everyday, work-a-day world? Fat chance! Are you surprised that, according to reports, he was banished by TWO college teams before he even entered the NFL — and he still got drafted? Should those two events have NOT told you something was wrong here? That’s not about intensity, that’s idiocy. Apparently, he wants to clear his name — by weathering the

storm and letting it blow over. Huh? How about the truth and owning up to what you do? Don’t lash out at anyone. You know full well with all the social media and such, whatever you send to people — tweets, twitter, e-mails, etc. — can come back to haunt you. Yes, let’s have a thorough investigation and all the truth revealed. Perhaps it was something that simply got out of hand. However, based on his track record, I’d find that hard to believe — though the sky might be falling, too. If it is as reported, quite frankly, if he is not banished from the league — and perhaps heading to jail — the Miami Dolphins AND the NFL need to be put under a very intense microscope. Definitely, I will keep an eye on this situation. ——One wonders what will happen with the World Cup starting in seven months. It sounds to me by what is going on — with continuing unrest in Rio de Janeiro protesting the lavish spending for this and the 2016 Summer Olympics — is threatening next summer’s World Cup. Brazilians love “The Beautiful Game” — it’s in their blood much like football, basketball and baseball are in ours — but they are upset at what they think is excessive spending preparing for these two events. The powers-that-be seem confident that everything will be handled well when it goes off but we shall see.

NFL

(Continued from page 6) “I just want to be happy. And I find that people that have the least in life are sometimes the happiest. And I don’t have the least in life. I have enough in life. And I won’t sacrifice my health for that.” Moffitt stressed that he’s not passing judgment on his former colleagues, saying, “This is all my personal stuff and I respect this game and I respect the men in this game.” Although Moffitt never had a history of concussions, he acknowledged all the blows he sustained in practices and games concerned him. Moffitt majored in sociology at Wisconsin and said his world view was really shaped over the last couple of years when he began studying the writings of the Dalai Lama and Noam Chomsky. Now that he’s out from behind the NFL shield, Moffitt said he’s looking forward to speaking his mind on the radio and in podcasts he’s going to produce, adding he has plenty of opinions to share on everything from philosophy to politics, although he has less to say about sports. He said he also wants to go on a diet now that he doesn’t have to maintain his 319-pound physique. Moffitt said the timing of his decision had nothing to do with Walton being activated from the reserve/PUP list, although “I’m glad it worked out like that,” adding he felt bad his decision coincided with coach John Fox’s heart operation. He doesn’t regret playing football, either. “Obviously, I wish things worked out better in Seattle. I wish I played more there, but I loved college football. I loved being in Seattle playing football. It wasn’t always the easiest, but I live here now

and I’m thankful,” he said. “I look back and I’m thankful for the whole experience. That’s enough for me.” Moffitt said he wants to spend more time with his parents in Connecticut and with his girlfriend and her 5-year-old daughter in Seattle. He said his father is “my best friend and I never get to see him.” Moffitt added he’ll miss playing in games and goofing around with the guys but he’s glad the rest of his NFL life is over; he is also glad to leave the league on his terms. Leadership vacuum to blame in Dolphins case? DAVIE, Fla. — A leadership vacuum may have contributed to the troubled relationship between Miami Dolphins offensive linemen Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito, which has left both players sidelined and the team in turmoil. The ongoing saga has raised questions about whether coach Joe Philbin and his staff were negligent in allowing issues between Martin and Incognito to fester. Current and ex-players around the NFL say the situation reflects a lack of leadership because teammates of Martin and Incognito didn’t intervene. NFL officials are trying to determine who knew what when, and whether Incognito harassed or bullied Martin. A second-year tackle from Stanford, Martin left the team last week and is with his family in California to undergo counseling for emotional issues. Incognito has been suspended indefinitely. The team built by Philbin and general manager Jeff Ireland has undergone heavy roster turnover after losing records each of the past four years. Of the 53 players on the squad, 20 are new to Miami this season.

Wildcats
(Continued from page 6) The Wildcat defense, ceding 13.7 points, 85.6 yards rushing (2.5 per) and 114.7 yards passing, is led by Thompson (71 solo stops, 38 assists; 9 sacks), Dalton Hicks (67 and 38, 5 for loss), Gorman (48 and 28), Jordan McCann (41 and 22; 7 sacks), Illig (41 and 15, 5 for loss), Tyler Mox (33 and 20; 2 picks), Ryan Kerby (33 and 19) and Trevor Dudgeon and Josh Teman (2 picks each). out slow,” Lindeman added.

Those are things we had not been doing before; we can’t do them Friday night.” Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.

Where have you gone, Norman Rockwell?
In 1955, there were 24 people at the Wintwell house for Thanksgiving. Aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, Mom and Dad. Most of the guests walked to the house, since they all lived within a couple of blocks of each other. Uncle Fred didn’t come; he had settled in Los Angeles after the war. Except for the turkey and the Sunday clothes, it wasn’t much different than a normal day at the Wintwell house. Every day was pretty much a family gathering. Last Thanksgiving, there were eight people at the Wintwells’. No one walked, no one lived within a couple blocks of each other. No one lived within a couple of states of each other. Four of them had to fly in and two had day-long drives. Fred and Karin flew in from Denver. They spend alternate holidays between families, Thanksgiving at one house, Christmas at another. They have to fly to get to both of them. Sally and Haywood flew in from Chicago. They live in Chicago, but it still takes them almost an hour to get to O’Hare on a good day. On holidays, it’s more like two hours. The good news is that most of their flying is free. On almost every holiday flight they book, an announcement is made that if someone will give up their seats, the airline will put them on the very next flight out and give them a free trip to anywhere in the states. They almost always take the offer. Once they took two offers in one day. None of their kids, the Wintwells’ grandchildren, could make it. The kids that grew up in Colorado wanted to go to college in California. The kids that grew up in Chicago wanted to go to New York or Boston. But mostly they want to go to the University of Getting Away From My Parents. Then they take jobs in Getting Away From My Parents’ State, then they marry people who are Nothing Like My Parents. Families haven’t drifted apart, they’ve exploded. And the strange thing is, they get their parents to pay for it. “But you’ll be home for Christmas, won’t you, darling?” “No, you’ll be paying for me to go to Cancun with my friends or I’ll never let you see the grandkids -- when I have them.” That’s what goes for a tight-knit family now. There are bars in New York where you can pretend you’re back in Chicago, there are bars in L.A. where you can pretend you’re back in Colorado. There are bars in every state that cater to people who came there from other states. These places aren’t called “Mom’s” or “Dad’s” or even “Just Like Home.” They’re modeled after the bars where they hung out before they moved away. Stan and Barbara were supposed to fly in from Phoenix, but there was a storm in Atlanta so they missed their connecting flight. They turned around and flew back home, then called to

say they would never travel on a holiday again and that if they wanted to have such a miserable experience in the future, they’d just go skinny-dipping in a jellyfish tank, thank you very much. But everyone was welcome to come to their house on the holidays from now on. Alan and Lindy drove from their second home on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, where they live in the off-season and rent out in the summer. “That way nobody robs us when we’re not there,” Lindy volunteered. “But maybe they’re robbing your first house when you’re in your second one,” Fred said. “It’s in a gated community,” Lindy said. “Is that to keep you in or them out?” Haywood asked. Gloria Wintwell came in from the kitchen and set a goldenbrown turkey on the table. “Doesn’t this look just like a Norman Rockwell painting?” she said. (Contact Jim Mullen JimMullenBooks.com.) at

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2013 Make wise choices in the year ahead. Use your talents and skills to the fullest. You have much to gain if you are persistent. The things you learn through others will give you enough courage and confidence to follow your dreams. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You’ll have an idea for a cultural or philosophical change while traveling or dealing with people from different backgrounds. Share your thoughts with others, and the insight you get will alter your future. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It’s a good time to make personal changes, but don’t try to get others to follow suit. Leave well enough alone when dealing with friends or family. Interfering in other people’s lives will backfire. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Put on a happy face, and you’ll charm even your most difficult opponent. Your knowledge and innovative approach to matters will capture attention in powerful quarters. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Keep your goals in view. The less you discuss your plans, the easier it will be to avoid interference. Your perspective on things is sound, and you should trust it. A change in the way you feel about someone is likely. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -You’ll be tempted to use unusual tactics to get what you want, but you need to be sure of things before you do so. Your intuition will help you figure out what to do and who to trust. A financial dispute will be settled in your favor.

Sebelius takes GOP criticism over “Obamacare”

WASHINGTON (AP) — Scientists studying the terrifying meteor that exploded without warning over a Russian city last winter say the threat of space rocks smashing into Earth is bigger than they thought. Meteors about the size of the one that streaked through the sky at 42,000 mph and burst over Chelyabinsk in February — and ones even larger and more dangerous — are probably four, five or even seven times more likely to hit the planet than scientists believed before the fireball, according to three studies published Wednesday in the journals Nature and Science. That means about 20 million space rocks the size of the Chelyabinsk one may be zipping around the solar system, instead of 3 million, NASA scientist Paul Chodas said at a news conference.

Russian fireball shows meteor risk may be bigger

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans blistered Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Wednesday over the nation’s controversial health care law, bluntly challenging her honesty, pushing for her resignation and demanding unsuccessfully she concede that President Barack Obama deliberately misled the public about his signature domestic program. “We’re not in it to just give you a rough time. We’re in it to try and hopefully get it right,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, at a hearing where Republicans — all of whom had voted against “Obamacare” — focused on the program’s flawed sign-up website as well as costs, policy cancellations, security concerns and other issues. During two hours in the Senate Finance Committee witness chair, Sebelius parried some thrusts and listened impassively to others. Treated more gently by Democrats than Republicans, she said at one point: “Clearly the opposition is still quite ferocious, and I’m just hoping that people understand what their options are, what their benefits could be and what their opportunities are.” She offered few if any concessions about a program she pointedly observed “passed both houses of Congress, was signed by the president and upheld by the Supreme Court.”

George Strait wins CMA entertainer of the year
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Blake Shelton captured album of the year, Miranda Lambert won female vocalist of the year and Taylor Swift was honored with the Pinnacle award for her achievements, but it was George Strait who won the night’s top honor at the Country Music Awards — entertainer of the year. Strait, who is retiring from the road, nabbed his third trophy in the category but hadn’t won the prestigious award since 1990. He capped a night where there was no clear favorite. Shelton, Swift, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Florida Georgia Line won two awards each. But Shelton won the other big award of the night — album of the year for “Based on a True Story” — besides grabbing male vocalist of the year, his fourth time winning the latter award. Lambert, his wife, also won her fourth straight female vocalist of the year award. “I really didn’t think this was going to happen this year,” Lambert said before thanking each of the other nominees. The husband and wife have been favorites of the CMA’s 6,000 voters for the last three years and Wednesday as no different, “I had mentioned earlier today that if there was an award that would mean the most to me tonight, it would be album of the year,” said Shelton, who won entertainer of the year last year and was in contention for it again this year. Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley scored single and vocal duo of the year. Their quick tally was more proof the so-called bro country movement is the sound of the moment in mainstream country. FGL kicked off the show performing a fist-pumping medley with Luke Bryan, and very quickly returned to the stage to take the trophy for single of the year for their “Cruise” remix featuring Nelly. They also played the new song “Round Here.” “It’s been a constant thing all year — we’ve been trying to wrap our minds around what’s going on,” Hubbard said backstage. “It’s been a dream come true for us and a huge blessing for us and something we could have never imagined.” Kacey Musgraves — who, along with Taylor Swift, led all nominees with six — won the new artist trophy, besting a field that included Florida Georgia Line. With smart songwriting, a progressive bent and a strong sense of self like country’s other top women, Musgraves made an auspicious mainstream country debut this year with her album “Same Trailer Different Park.” She attended “This first year for me has just been undescribable,” said Musgraves, who set a record for nominations for a woman in her first year on the show. Hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley got the show going on a jovial note as they took the stage with their opening skit, first joking about feuds in music. They also skewered Obamacare to a Nashville audience that roared with approval, and brought out the guys from the hit show “Duck Dynasty” and parodied Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” Lee Brice’s “I’d Drive Your Truck,” about a fallen soldier whose father still drives his truck, won song of the year, and Little Big Town took its second straight vocal group of the year. Swift later performed a somber, acoustic version of her hit “Red” with Vince Gill, Alison Krauss and Sam Bush and was given the CMA’s Pinnacle Award. The award goes to artists who take country music to a worldwide audience. Garth Brooks is the only previous winner. He won in 2005. The CMA brought a star-studded welcoming group out of stage for Swift that included George Strait, Rascal Flatts, McGraw, Urban, Faith Hill and Paisley — all of whom gave Swift a chance to open for them on the road a teenager. A video salute followed with appearances by Justin Timberlake, Julia Roberts, Carly Simon, Ethel Kennedy and Mick Jagger — whose appearance made Swift shout. Swift recounted a call she got out of the blue from her Big Machine Records head Scott Borchetta when she was 16. “He said, ‘Can you be on the road in two days to open for Rascal Flatts,’ and I immediately started screaming and said, ‘This must be a miracle,’” she said. “He said, ‘No, it’s not a miracle. Eric Church got fired for playing too long.” She added: “You’ve made me feel so special right now, thank you.” Swift also is nominated for her third entertainer of the year award, the night’s top honor. Bryan and FGL weren’t the only acts teaming up. Collaboration was the theme of the night as Strait and Alan Jackson joined together to salute the late George Jones with a rendition of “She Stopped Loving Him Today.” Hunter Hayes and Jason Mraz took a tour of the Bridgestone Arena while performing “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me.” And Brown and his band joined in on a growing hard-rock trend in country as Foo Fighter Dave Grohl joined the band on drums for new song high-powered “Day for the Dead And in one of the night’s most anticipated moments, Kenny Rogers received the CMA’s Willie Nelson lifetime achievement award and was saluted by Jennifer Nettles, Rucker and Rascal Flatts. Rogers sat on stage and mouthed along as Rascal Flatts sang “Just Dropped In (to See What Condition My Condition Is In),” the crowd helped Rucker sing “The Gambler” and Nettles and Rogers finished the tribute by singing “Islands in the Stream” together. “It’s been a hell of a month,” Rogers said. “The (Country Music) Hall of Fame last week, this this week. I can’t wait to see what’s coming next week.”

US trashes, sells its unwanted gear in Afghanistan
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) — The withdrawing U.S. military is destroying most of the equipment it is leaving behind in Afghanistan after 13 years of war, selling the scrap for millions of dollars to those willing to buy it. The policy stands in stark contrast to the Americans’ withdrawal from Iraq, when they donated or sold still-usable items worth about $100 million. The equipment is being trashed, U.S. officials say, because of fears that anything left behind in Afghanistan could fall into the hands of insurgents and used to make bombs. Leaving it behind also saves the U.S. billions of dollars in transportation costs. Afghans are angry at the policy, arguing that even furniture and appliances that could improve their lives is being turned into useless junk. “They use everything while they are here, and then they give it to us after breaking it,” said Mohammed Qasim, a junk dealer in the volatile southern province of Kandahar. He gestured toward the large yellow frame of a gutted generator, saying it would have been more useful in somebody’s home, given the lack of electricity in the area. The twisted mounds of metal, steel and industrial rubber scattered over a vast field had once been armored vehicles, trucks and huge blast walls that protected troops from suicide bombers. Giant black treads were pulled from tanks. Even air conditioners, exercise machines and office equipment were crushed and stuffed into multicolored shipping containers piled on top of each other in the junkyard. In the last year, the U.S. has turned equipment and vehicles into 387 million pounds (176 million kilograms) of scrap that it sold to Afghans for $46.5 million, according to Mimi Schirmacher, a spokeswoman for the military’s Defense Logistics Agency in Virginia.

Advocates believe dogs will make schools safer
LOS ANGELES (AP) — While some say school safety hinges on guns, cameras or alarms in classrooms, Mark Gomer and Kristi Schiller think specially trained dogs should take point in preventing violence in schools. Gomer’s for-profit company has sent a gun- and drugdetecting dog to patrol the halls of an Ohio high school, while Schiller is launching a nonprofit in Houston to give schools the trained canines for free. Their programs are still in their infancy, so questions remain about dogs that can distract, scare or send kids into sneezing fits. But they think they can cultivate their ideas to help schools across the country stay safe. Gomer’s first full-time safety dog is a year-old Dutch shepherd named Atticus, who reported to duty this school year at Oak Hills High School in Green Township in southwest Ohio. The dog trained at the school before the summer break, said Gomer, co-owner of American Success Dog Training in Bridgetown, Ohio. As part of the company’s School Protection Dog program, Atticus learned on

Project

(Continued from page 1) Hoverman explained, “It’s not an app we developed but it’s one we are using. It’s more interactive and you can get an idea of how the show is going to look from the stands. Usually by Thursday, we’re marching and playing the music from memory.” The band is able to do things that even amaze its members, said Hoverman. “We have people take rehearsal video, kind of like taking game film. But when you see it, that’s when it hits you. You can figure out what all is happening.”

The marching techniques and formations will not be needed when the band travels to Van Wert for a soldout concert tonight at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center. Tickets were also sold for the opportunity to hear a simulcast of the show, which features the band playing the music from this year’s halftime performances. Hoverman is almost finished with his time as a member of the band. He knows he is going to miss it, just as he misses playing football like he did during his years at Van Wert High School. “I haven’t really thought about

it much until now,” he admitted. “Let’s put it this way, it’s been a long time since I’ve gone to watch a game when I wasn’t down on the field!” Hoverman fully expects for the shock of not being in the band to hit at the first OSU home game in 2014. He has traveled with the group to the Rose Bowl, the Sugar Bowl and the Gator Bowl, and is hoping for a chance to attend the BCS Championship Game this winter. But for now Hoverman is enjoying playing his horn, marching, and being a part of a nationally-recognized marching band.

Answers to Wednesday’s questions: The American flag was designed by Francis Hopkinson, a naval flag designer, who was never reimbursed for his services by the U.S. government. And, there is no record of Betsy Ross’s commission to sew the flag. Dollar was the English spelling of the German Taler (a silver coin first issued in 1519). American colonists used the word dollar to describe the Spanish peso circulating from South American and when it came time to devise a system of currency (in 1792), the United States government adopted the dollar as its basic monetary unit. The word cent meant one-hundredth of a dollar — following the decimal system of coinage first proposed by Gouverneur Morris. Today’s questions: How many females have appeared on U.S. currency? How did the elephant and donkey come to be the symbols for the Republican and Democratic parties? Answers in Friday’s Herald.

Trivia

the job about marching bands and school bells and the thunk of books hitting a locker. Gomer, who has trained about 8,000 dogs over 20 years and has three children in the school district, suggested the dog after 20 students and six teachers were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Atticus has won over students, parents, teachers and district Superintendent Todd Yohey, who initially worried what people would think of him spending $10,000 on a dog. Gomer has talked to a lot of parents and faculty, and they are saying it was money well-spent, he said. Atticus spends his days on a leash with two security guards and goes home with Principal John Stoddard at night. Messages left for Stoddard were not immediately returned. For her part, Schiller is looking to provide safety dogs to schools free of charge. She hopes her new initiative, K9s4KIDs, does for schools what her K9s4COPs did for police departments. She’s placed more than 60 dogs with agencies in three years.

One of the most delightful of the Phi Delta Sorority social affairs is the annual formal pledge tea. Such an affair was held Sunday afternoon at the home of the sorority president, Martha Stallkamp, East Fifth Street. The pledges were Mrs. M. J. Lehmann, Agnes Buecker, Martha Dannhausen, Viola Sc hmit, Dorothy Miller and Velma Geary. Dr. John L. Sassen has selected the following ladies of St. John’s parish to serve as delegates to the biennial convention of the Toledo Diocesan Council of Catholic Women to be held Nov. 15 in Toledo: Mrs. Nick Schmit, Mrs. L. H. Huber, Mrs. S. H. Wahmhoff, Mrs. Carl Lindemann and Mrs. Fred Reinemeyer.

He said the job taught him a lot of things, like how to make change and how to be responsible. “I had to work hard to get a carrier job,” Geier said. “I put my name on a list and waited on a route.” Geier said he rode his bike in the snow and passed papers to 120 customers. He recalled the paper cost 12 cents per week and he earned $1.20 when he collected all the customer’s subscription dues on Saturdays. “There were two customers that gave me a generous $1.00 tip each week when I collected,” he said with a smile. “Those were the customers who I put papers in their mailboxes for.” Delphos has changed quite a bit since Geier rode his bike to deliver The Delphos Daily Herald. After giving up the Marbletown route, he distributed papers on Route I on the west end of town, which

encompassed Fifth, Sixth, Canal, Elm and Jefferson streets. “The swimming pool was built in 1939 and the football field was in the front of the pool,” Geier explained. “On Elm Street, from Seventh to North Street, there was only one house and the rest was an open field where we used to fly our kites.” He said the land off of North Street, where Dickman and Gilliland Avenue and Wildwood Circle are now, used to be where Bill Metcalfe’s old farm was. Geier said at that time, Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) was the U.S. President, there was no television and his family got their first icebox as a Christmas gift in 1940. “We wore overhauls and tennis shoes,” he said. “We did not wear shorts.” Later in life, Geier said that he worked for the current owner of the Herald, Murray Cohen, doing some construction and replacement windows in the upstairs area of the building.
