Menke may plead insanity in shooting
BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor email@example.com VAN WERT — According to her lawyer, Tamara K. Menke is considering a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity. Menke was ordered held on a $1 million cash bond on Monday at her arraignment hearing in Van Wert County Court of Common Pleas. She is accused of shooting her mother to death and also shooting her father in a family dispute Nov. 14. She did not enter a plea to the charges she is facing, as attorney Scott Gordon notified the court that he wishes to have a competency evaluation for his client to determine her mental condition at the time of the shootings. Wearing an orange prison outfit, the 47-year-old Menke said little Monday morning, exchanging only a few whispered words with her attorney. She was advised of five felony counts against her. Menke is charged with aggravated murder, which is punishable by life in prison without parole or with the possibility of parole in 20, 25, or 30 years. The other four charges are: attempted aggravated murder, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 11 years in prison and a $20,000 fine; felonious assault, a seconddegree felony punishable by up to eight years in prison and a $15,000 fine; aggravated burglary, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 11 years in prison and a $20,000 fine; and burglary, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 36 months in prison and a fine of $10,000. Each of the five counts has a specification attached that she used a firearm in the commission of the crimes. The specifications would add one more year in prison for each count. With no plea being entered by Menke, the court entered a not guilty plea on her behalf. Her next appearance in court was scheduled for Dec. 23 when a pretrial hearing in the case will be held.

Finance, Safety members fact-find
By NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — Members of the Delphos Finance and Safety committees met Monday to gather more information to make decisions on the 2014 Budget. Deficit spending of $58,203 still needs to be addressed. Finance Committee Chair Joe Martz opened the meeting with a question concerning overtime in the Fire and Rescue Department. “How are you guys look as far as overtime for the rest of the month?” Martz asked acting Fire Chief Kevin Streets. “We are looking at about $4,800 in overtime,” Streets began. “Platoon Chief (Don) Moreo is having surgery on Dec. 17 and I’m going out for surgery tomorrow. That leaves Bunny Carder, Roger Haehn and Kirby Miller to fill shifts. That is going to create overtime.” Members also asked about the Marion and Washington township service contracts for 2014. Mayor Michael Gallmeier said a contract with no increases for the next three years has been given to the township trustees. “We have talked to both townships and they have the paperwork,” Gallmeier said. “We do not have contracts with either. Their contracts expire on Dec. 31.” When committee members learned Delphos would respond to both townships on calls due to the statewide mutual aid mandate regardless if a contract was in place, they asked Auditor Tom Jettinghoff to propose a per-call rate in case the contracts are not signed by the end of the year. Martz also inquired about the Safer Grant the city applied for through U.S. Homeland Security. Streets said the department has received verbal acceptance and with the holiday, it’s just a matter of when. “They make announcements each Friday and we’ve been through three rounds,” Streets said. “There are quite a few rounds left. It could be now, it could be March.” Jim Knebel asked Jettinghoff the status of the loan-payment deferment for the water and wastewater plants and the reservoir. Jettinghoff said the deferment is completed and he received a new payment schedule. The committee also discussed water and sewer rate increases to generate revenue. A 7-percent residential/3.5-percent industry increase would generate $266,000; a 3-percent increase on both would raise $116,000; and a 5-percent increase across the board would generate $194,000.

Out-going school board members reflect on their service
BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer email@example.com DELPHOS — Out-going Delphos City Schools Board of Education members Perry Wiltsie, John Klausing and George Mox reflected on their experiences, relationships and appreciation for the administration, teachers and students at Monday’s meeting. “Although I’ve only been here a couple of years, I appreciate Perry and John, the tough calls they had to make,” Mox stated. “I have learned a lot and appreciate what the teachers and administration have done for the district.” “I want to thank you (the board members) for eight years,” Klausing said. “All the guidance from Frank Sukup, John Edinger and Mark Fuerst; keeping everything moving forward.” “I want to thank the people for having the trust in me for voting me in, not once but twice,” Wiltsie said. “The leadership from the administration through the staff, who have overcome some of the decisions we had to make. We have all paid a price.” Treasurer Brad Rostorfer explained the committee has been working on processing the copier contract and said a decision will be made soon. Rostorfer said at present time, the district is contracted with Allied of Lima, who is ensuring the buildings’ asbestos compliance. In addition, the athletic fund has seen a large increase from sporting event admissions. Superintendent Kevin Wolfe reported on Race to the Top and said that the SLO (Student Learning Outcome) Committee has completed evaluating student objectives. “Revisions are complete and changes have been approved,” Wolfe explained. Wolfe said that the formative assessments — or short cycle testing — for elementary and grade school students have also been completed. See BOARD, page 10

Hunters harvest 75,000 deer during weeklong gun season
Democrat ends bid to be lieutenant governor
COLUMBUS — Ohio hunters checked 75,408 white-tailed deer during the weeklong gun hunting season, Dec. 2-8, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). ”With the muzzleloader season and almost two months of archery hunting yet to come, Ohio hunters have many more opportunities to harvest a deer,” said Scott Zody, chief of the ODNR Division of Wildlife. Hunting is the best and most effective management tool for maintaining Ohio’s healthy deer population. Hunters have harvested 162,720 deer so far in the 2013 hunting seasons, compared to 171,867 at the same point last year, a 5 percent difference. The ODNR Division of Wildlife remains committed to properly managing Ohio’s deer populations through a combination of regulatory and programmatic changes. The goal of Ohio’s Deer Management Program is to provide a deer population that maximizes recreational opportunities, while minimizing conflicts with landowners and motorists. This ensures that Ohio’s deer herd is maintained at a level that is both acceptable to most and biologically sound. Until recently, the populations in nearly all of Ohio’s counties were well above their target numbers. In the last few years, through increased harvests, dramatic strides have been made in many counties to bring those populations closer toward their goal.
Once a county’s deer population is near goal, harvest regulations are adjusted to maintain the population near that goal. Archery season remains open through Feb. 2, 2014. The muzzleloader season is Jan. 4-7, 2014. Counties reporting the highest number of checked deer during the 2013 gun season: Coshocton (2,658), Muskingum (2,604), Tuscarawas (2,604), Guernsey (2,401), Ashtabula (2,334), Harrison (2,133), Carroll (2,019), Knox (1,966), Licking (1,887) and Belmont (1,851). Coshocton County also had the most deer checked in the 2012 deer gun season (3,119). Ohio’s first modern day deer-gun season opened in 1943 in three counties and hunters harvested 168 deer. Deer hunting was allowed in all 88 counties in 1956 and hunters harvested 3,911 deer during that oneweek season. Hunters are encouraged to donate deer to help the needy in their area. The ODNR Division of Wildlife is working with Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) to help pay for the processing of donated venison. Hunters who donate a deer to a
food bank are not required to pay the processing cost as long as funding for the effort is available. More information about this program can be found online at fhfh.org. Other opportunities for hunters to donate venison can be pursued through Safari Club International’s Sportsmen Against Hunger program. Information about this program can be found atsafariclubfoundation.org. Whitetails Unlimited chapters also use local funds for programs such as venison donation. Go to whitetailsunlimited.com to find a local chapter and make a donation. Deer hunting in Ohio continues to be a popular activity for many who enjoy the outdoors. Ohio hunters checked 218,910 deer during the 20122013 season. Ohio ranks fifth nationally in resident hunters and 11th in the number of jobs associated with hunting-related industries. Hunting has a more than $853 million economic impact in Ohio through the sale of equipment, fuel, food, lodging and more, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Hunting in America: An Economic Force for Conservation publication. More information about Ohio deer hunting can be found in the 20132014 Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations or at wildohio.com. ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr.gov.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A Democratic lieutenant governor candidate in Ohio who faced hundreds of thousands of dollars in state and federal tax liens dropped out of the race Tuesday, saying his financial troubles were taking away from debate on important policy issues. State Sen. Eric Kearney, a Cincinnati attorney, said in a statement that he would no longer be gubernatorial contender Ed FitzGerald’s running mate as FitzGerald challenges Republican Gov. John Kasich next year. “This has come to be a distraction from a discussion of the vital issues facing Ohio, and the choice voters must make in this election,” Kearney said. “The stakes are too high: We need a change of leadership to move Ohio in a new direction that puts more Ohioans back to work and builds a better future for our children.” Kearney, his wife, Jan-Michele, and their Cincinnati publishing business, KGL Media Group, owe roughly $700,000 in state and federal tax liens. A foreclosure proceeding, credit card debt and unpaid workers’ compensation premiums also had been revealed in a series of bruising media reports, which also highlighted conflicting accounts about how much FitzGerald knew of the details before Kearney’s selection. In an interview after the decision, FitzGerald said the ticket’s inability to effectively draw attention to an uptick in Ohio unemployment shortly after Kearney’s candidacy was announced persuaded him the controversy had become a distraction. “We weren’t really able to even talk about that or communicate that,” he said. “We had to keep talking about all the nuances of these business transactions that this business had gone through.” Kearney said he and his wife remain committed to KGL, which does business as Sesh Communications, and the Cincinnati Herald, its flagship publication.

Vantage Building & Grounds Maintenance program marks 10 years
Information submitted VAN WERT — The Vantage Building & Grounds Maintenance program was created in 2003 and has tackled several different projects during its 10 year existence. In the beginning, two condemned houses were purchased by the school so Building and Grounds students could learn how to do demolition, remodeling, roofing, install windows and drywall and light carpentry skills. Once those two projects were completed, the class moved on to helping with community projects such as remodeling and siding the new Van Wert Historical Society office and gift shop, assisting with the interior demolition of the old Van Wert Armory to make room for the new Wassenburg Art Center and building picnic shelters for local organizations. This year has already been a very busy one for the class. Students completely refurbished one of the horse barns at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds by removing the old rails and replacing them with new and more solid wood. Students built new shelves for the fairgrounds and then installed them into a storage barn for supplies. Once again working with the Historical Society, the students are refurbishing an old traveler’s cottage, which is supposed to be the last original one in this area. The cabin was part of the former Runnion HC Gas and Tourist Cabins and was behind Dr. Wilkins veterinary clinic. Students reinforced the interior of the required to fill the forms and then poured and finished the concrete. “We are now in the process of lowering the cottage down onto the concrete slab that we poured earlier. Once that’s done, we will put the building back to its original shape and size and replace any rotten wood with new. New rafters will be installed along with new shingles and fascia boards. It will be on the historical museum grounds for everyone to see,” teacher Larry Mengerink commented. A continuing project for the class has been the Vantage Recycling effort. The Building and Grounds students are the heart and soul of this project. Each week, students pick up recycling from classrooms and labs and get it to the proper containers. According to the Van Wert Solid Waste District, Vantage recycling has tripled since last year. This September, 1,910 pounds of recycling was collected compared to only 440 pounds in September 2012. Now that the construction and expansion project is complete, Building & Grounds students are also learning new landscaping skills. They mow, trim, and edge the entire Vantage property and students are eager to put the zero turn mowers to work in the spring. They have even started a compost area. This winter, the students will be building a portable wheelchair ramp for an individual with no access to their house without a ramp, while they continue to work with the Vantage maintenance crew to keep the inside of the new building clean and functional.

Calendar of Events
We are in the first week of December, the final month of 2013. I went to town yesterday to take son Kevin to the dentist. Everywhere you see reminders that the Christmas holiday is approaching fast. It gets dark early so it was dark when we left town. Kevin enjoyed watching all the Christmas lights. The girls made a breakfast meal for our supper last night. On the menu was bacon, scrambled eggs, toast and cottage cheese. It is nice to have the girls make supper when I have to leave for an appointment. When they were all younger, I would have to make supper after I was home. My husband Joe and daughter Elizabeth are back to work after being off Thanksgiving week. Although it is nice to have time off from work that also means no payday. The Good Lord will provide, though, if we keep our trust in Him. Yesterday, sister Emma dropped off her three boys here at 5:30 a.m. as she had a 2-3 hour drive to an appointment for her daughter Elizabeth, 17. Elizabeth had ear surgery in November and this appointment was a checkup. I told our boys that if they went to bed ear-
lier the evening before, I’d wake them up before Emma and Jacob’s boys get here at 5:30. I made breakfast for our five scholars and Jacob, 14; Benjamin, 11; and Steven, 6. They had 1 1/2 hours to play until the bus came at 7 a.m. The house seemed quiet after all eight school children left for school. They all had a good start to the day. Dec. 10, daughter Verena will have her 16th birthday. Hard to believe she will be joining the youth. E l i z a b e t h ’s friend Timothy was happy to get his third deer of the season. His freezer quit working this summer and he didn’t discover it until all the meat was spoiled. He is glad to be able to put meat back in his new freezer. I tasted the venison steaks Timothy grilled and they were pretty good. I am not a venison fan but if I had not known it was venison it would have been hard to guess it wasn’t beef. Joe hasn’t had any luck from where he hunts. Seems to be too many other hunters surrounding him so they head off the deer before they get to the woods Joe hunts. Today is laundry day again. The temperatures were in the mid-50s when Joe left for work and now it is 33. Looks like we’ll just hang clothes to dry in the basement. After
the laundry is done we’ll make some noodles if possible (Editor’s Note: stay tuned for some noodle photos.) This is the first time I have made “Spellbinder Cookies” to take to church. Other women in our church make them so I thought I would try them. The recipe didn’t have a time and temperature for baking so I guessed at that. Hope they will work as well for you as they did for me. Blessings to all! Spellbinder Cookies 4 cups brown sugar 4 cups shortening 4 eggs 4 teaspoon vanilla 4 teaspoon baking soda 6 teaspoons baking powder 4 cups oatmeal 4 cups coconut (optional) 2 cups chopped nuts (optional) 6 cups flour Add to the first mixture. Refrigerate for 1 hour or leave set overnight. Then form balls and roll n crushed cornflakes. Press cookie down. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes. GLAZE 1/2 cup margarine 4 cups powdered sugar 4 tablespoons hot water 4 teaspoons vanilla Cool cookies and then add the warm glaze. Note: I added 1 cup crushed Corn Flakes to the cookie dough instead of rolling the balls in it.

Happiness often depends on how you view life’s situations. Some people dwell on what’s wrong in their lives; others concentrate on the good things life gives them. A famous politician once traveled hundreds of miles, making seven speeches in one day. Someone asked him how he could still be so full of energy after such a long day. He replied, “Because I believe absolutely in everything I said in those speeches. I am enthusiastic about my convictions.” When you truly believe in something, you often ﬁnd you have unlimited energy. Perhaps it’s a certain cause or charity. Maybe Using today’s newspaper, try to it’s a special group or identify news stories that involve hate, community organization. fear, resentment, or any combination of the Whatever your good three.

FACT: 59% of girls, but only 36% of boys, report that they would resolve an aggressive conﬂict peacefully.
Avoid energy blockers
Knute Rockne, one of the greatest football coaches in history, said, “I have to get the most energy out of a man, and I have discovered that it cannot be done if he hates another man. Hate blocks his energy, and he isn’t up to par until he eliminates it and develops a friendly feeling.” Hate is just one example of our so-called energy blockers. Fear and resentment can also zap away our energy — mentally and physically. If we can keep our minds free of the bad feelings and inner conﬂicts that we allow to affect us, our bodies can operate like a ﬁnely tuned machine, full of energy and raring to go.

Big 4th quarter rallies Cougars over Lady Bearcats
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org SPENCERVILLE — Everything Spencerville had done right for three periods Tuesday night, they didn’t in the fourth. Van Wert did everything right in its fourth period. That allowed the Lady Cougars to rally with a dominant 26-5 fourth period and ran off with a 63-50 non-league girls hardwood victory at Spencerville High School. “In all five games this year, we’ve had that one bad quarter like tonight. Outside of Coldwater, it’s been the fourth,” Spencerville coach Warren Pughsley noted. “We get in too much of a hurry and when we do that, it messes up everyone else; we have two girls in the same spot or two not knowing where they are supposed to be, for an example.” Down 45-37 to start the finale, a 3-ball by Lady Bearcat (0-5) Katie Merriman (8 markers) just 28 ticks into the quarter gave them their largest lead of 48-37. They would then go through a drought of 6:12 by missing their next three shots and turning the ball over eight times (11 in the quarter, 23 for the game). Meantime, Cougar junior Erin Morrow (17 counters, 13 boards, 4 assists) caught fire with nine points in the period, including 7-of-8 singles. As well, junior Alexis Dowdy (16 counters, 11 caroms) and senior Claire Butler (12 points) scored six each. A 3-ball from the left wing by senior Cheyenne Handy — the Spencerville junior Schylar Miller drives against the defense of Van Wert visitors’ only trey of the night — at 2:20 gave Van Wert the lead for good at 51-48. senior Cheyenne Handy Tuesday night at Spencerville.

Leipsic holds off Lady Musketeers in PCL
By DAVE BONINSEGNA DHI Correspondent email@example.com FORT JENNINGS — Tuesday night’s Putnam County League girls basketball tilt between the Fort Jennings Musketeers and the Leipsic Vikings was a PCL battle in every sense of the word. There were five ties, nine lead changes and the biggest lead was a 15-7 advantage by the hosts after the first period. However, despite scoring just one basket from the field in the final stanza, the Vikings held on for a 49-45 victory. Amber Gerdeman led Leipsic with 13 points and Kelly Nadler, Haley Gerten and Shay Morman added eight in the win. Cassie Lindeman paced the home team with nine points and Emily Kehres and Gabby Clippinger added eight. The teams exchanged baskets early on as Kehres hit six of her points in the first period. Rachel Rieman gave the guests a 7-6 lead before Fort Jennings tallied nine of the last 10 points in the first eight minutes. However, after a technical foul on the Vikings bench, the visitors rallied to tie the game a 17-17; Gerten gave the Vikings a short-lived lead before Jenna Calvelage put the home team back on top with a deuce. Jennings lead 22-20 before Morman dropped two from the line to tie it at 22-22 with 2:20 left in the half, Morman added three more to her first-half total on a basket-and-one to give the Vikings a 25-22 lead with less than two minutes to go before the break. The visitors would hold off the Musketeers in the first half and take a 28-26 lead into the break.

Kehres came out and hit her first shot of the second half to tie the game at 28-28, then another back and forth, basket-forbasket portion ensued. However, the Musketeers could not grab the lead. Gerdeman gave the Vikings a 36-34 advantage, a lead that Leipsic would increase to 42-34 just before the buzzer, but a Cassie Lindeman shot from the volleyball line for the hosts made it a 42-37 game headed into the final eight minutes. The Musketeers fought and clawed despite Calvelage and Erin Osting getting their fourth fouls of the game a minute into the frame. Jennings also lost Hannah Clay in the fourth to an injury. Nevertheless, the Musketeers kept it close. Gable brought the Musketeers to within three at 46-43 with a steal and basket with just under two minutes left. Calvalage made it 1-point game seconds later with a basket from the right elbow. But Rieman connected for two from the foul line late in the contest to seal the win for the Vikings. Leipsic (49) H.

——— By Charlie Warnimont Sentinel Sports Editor OTTAWA — Ottawa-Glandorf’ wasn’t wasting time to get their name engraved on the traveling trophy that goes to the winner of their annual dual match with Columbus Grove. Minutes after the Titans defeated Columbus Grove 52-29 to win the trophy for the first time, the O-G coaching staff was removing the square where their name would go. This is the first time O-G has won the trophy in its four years of existence. Two weeks ago the two teams squared off in the season opening Cory-Rawson duals with the Bulldogs squeaking out a 1-point win. Monday night, the Titans reversed the roles getting a quick lead in the upper weight classes, then used four straight wins in the lower weight classes to take a comfortable lead. Titan coach Kenny Siefker contributed the win to getting one more wrestler in the lineup Monday night and having the lower weight classes almost filled, something they had been lacking in previous years in any meet. “This feels great to win the trophy,” Siefker said. “This is the first time in my nine years of coaching

we’ve had almost a full lineup. We filled the 120pound class tonight and did some juggling around with the lineup due to injuries to get as any positions filled. A bunch of little ones came out this year and I’m thankful for that.” Starting with the 170 pound match, the two teams split the first two matches as O-G’s Jeremy Gibson pinned the Bulldogs Tyler Schroeder in 3:47 and Grove’s Will Selhorst pinned the Titans’ Trenton Meyer in 1:17 at 182. The Titans won the next three upper weight classes as Derek Ebbeskotte pinned Alex Burgei in 4:24, while Colton Rieman (220) and Shaun Gibson (285) both won by forfeit. In the lower weight classes, O-G picked up two wins as Le’on Palomo defeated Preston Brubaker 9-0 at 106 pounds and Logan Balbaugh pinned the Bulldogs’ Justin Calvelage in 3:30 at 113 pounds. Jon Basinger (120) and Ajan Brown (126) both won by forfeit. Eli Schroeder stopped the Titans streak of seven straight wins with a technical fall win over Tygan Nelson at 132 pounds, 17-2. Isaac Siefker (138) won by forfeit and Ralph Recker pinned Jacob Otto in 58 seconds at 152 for O-G’s final two wins. At 145 pounds, Christian Stechschulte pinned the Titans Lupe Williams in 1;33, while at 160 pounds the Bulldogs’ Andrew Burgei pinned Christian Santiago in 1:30. “They (the new wrestlers) came out and proved
they are worthy,” O-G’s Siefker said. “We have been practicing every night, going over moves and watching film trying to get them to be the best they can be. Every little win helps us out and helps their egos out. We plan on trying to keep moving forward with each meet.” While the Titans added a wrestler to the lineup Monday evening, the Bulldogs were without some wrestlers due to injury and illness. “They had more kids tonight than the first time we saw them and we had a couple of wrestlers missing. They wrestled pretty good tonight,” Columbus Grove coach Eric Siefker said. “We had to switch the lineup around tonight to fill as many positions as possible. They deserved to win tonight. They wrestled hard tonight and got us.” ***

Cause for concern for Buckeyes
By David Briggs The Toledo Blade COLUMBUS — The aftermath of an Ohio State loss is rarely pretty and this week is no different. No one understands this better than Luke Fickell, who has felt both the adulation and wrath of the Buckeyes’ loudest minority. A sampling of message boards after Saturday night’s Big Ten championship game revealed hotter heads prevailing and predictions the man in charge of OSU’s defense would not, with one fan launching FireFickell.com. Yet publicly, the even-tempered Fickell’s response remains the same: Bring it. “I tell guys all the time, the hardest thing around Columbus, Ohio, to handle is praise,” Fickell said. “Criticism is not hard to handle. If you’re not a tough person, you’re in the wrong sport anyway. Criticism just makes you tougher, makes you grind harder, makes you work harder, and it makes you a better person.” Can it also make a better defense? Though coach Urban Meyer has not hinted at any wholesale changes, he said he plans to evaluate a defense that has fallen short of his standard — and one that is bracing for its biggest test yet against Clemson in the Orange Bowl. All-American senior quarterback Tajh Boyd has thrown for 3,473 yards and 29 touchdowns on a Tigers offense ranked 12th nationally (502.9 yards per game). By comparison, Michigan and Michigan State — the schools that have gashed OSU for a combined 75 points and 1,000-plus yards the past two weeks — are 83rd and 84th, respectively. “We’ve already began to look at [the defense],” said Meyer, who is 7-1 alltime in bowl games and 4-0 in BCS contests. “There are certainly some things that need to get fixed and get fixed in a hurry. Look at what’s coming down the road here.” A defense whose off-and-on struggles played out under the cover of a nationalbest 24-game winning streak was exposed in full during the Buckeyes’ 34-24 loss to Michigan State.

Tommie Frazier finally enters College Hall of Fame
By RALPH D. RUSSO Associated Press
omore quarterback Connor Cook said earlier in the week he was “licking his chops” to face OSU, then backed up the bluster with a career-high 304 yards passing. A week after the Buckeyes were burned by Michigan’s screen passes and misdirections, a 13-yard screen for the Spartans’ first completion foreshadowed another long day. They allowed five plays of 20 or more yards, three of which went for touchdowns and a fourth — a 48-yard pass from Cook to Macgarrett Kings, Jr. — that led to the Spartans’ other TD. All the more staggering was it came despite regular pressure from OSU, with star freshman defensive end Joey Bosa having two of the team’s eight tackles for a loss. The back seven often appeared lost — Shazier said there was “some miscommunication” — with the pass defense Meyer called “alarming” in October returning for a second straight week. There are explanations. OSU has little linebacker depth beyond star junior Ryan Shazier, and a season-ending injury to third-year senior safety Christian Bryant was a bigger issue than expected. Cornerback Bradley Roby’s extended second-half absence with a knee injury Saturday didn’t help, either.

NEW YORK — Tommie Frazier waited a couple years longer than many Nebraska fans felt was appropriate to get into the College Football Hall of Fame. Being snubbed didn’t bother Touchdown Tommie. He’s just glad the call finally came and that so many appreciated his play. Frazier is one of 12 former players who were inducted by the National Football Foundation in the College Hall of Fame on Tuesday night in New York. Also among the inductees were Heisman Trophy winners Vinny Testaverde, Danny Wuerffel and Ron Dayne and former coaches Wayne Hardin of Temple and Navy and Bill McCartney of Colorado. Frazier guided the Cornhuskers to back-to-back national cham-
pionships in 1994 and ‘95 and played a year in the Canadian Football League. He was selected for Hall of Fame induction in the third year he was eligible. For Huskers’ fans — and anyone else who watched Frazier run Nebraska’s prolific triple-option offense — that was way too long. “I think the fans were speaking for me,” Frazier said Tuesday at the Waldorf Astoria hotel before the latest class of Hall-of-Famers were inducted during an awards banquet. “I’m not the type of person that’s going to promote himself or say I deserve this or deserve that. I’m truly blessed that it happened when it happened.” The rest of the class included: Ted Brown of North Carolina State; Tedy Bruschi of Arizona; Jerry Gray of Texas; Steve Meilinger of Kentucky; the late Rod Shoate of Oklahoma; Don Trull of Baylor; Percy Snow of Michigan State and Orlando Pace of Ohio State.

Van Wert canned 24-of-49 fielders — 1-of-9 downtown — for 49 percent; secured 33 rebounds (16 offensive); and amassed 15 errors and 10 fouls. Van Wert hosts OttawaGlandorf Thursday. “We have a big game Thursday and perhaps we were looking ahead. Maybe getting up early like that got us thinking it would be easy,” Moonshower added. “Spencerville keeps playing hard — they have all year — and if you don’t play hard, you turn it over and they did what they did. We had good shots in the paint all night but we got sloppy with our form until the fourth quarter.” Spencerville tallied 18-of-48 shots (5-of-14 triples) for 37.5 percent and 9-of10 freebies (90%); seized 33 off the glass
(13 offensive); and 21 fouls. Junior Emilee Meyer dished three dimes. The Bearcats visit Paulding Thursday.

Sophomore Phoebe Eutsler led the victors with 11 points and freshman Emma Kohn 10, while junior Tiffany Work paced the hosts with 12.

I don’t know if this is her nickname for the pet, or if I’ve provided enough information for you to figure out the type of animal this is. -- E.N.A., Wyomissing, Pa. A: “Sugar” something is enough information for me to at least give you a good possibility. I think she has a sugar glider. They are native to Australia and Indonesia. This little creature is a member of the same order that includes kangaroos, opossums, wombats and Tasmanian devils! The sugar glider’s head and body measure five to six inches long, and it has a bushy tail of equal length. The adult glider weighs 4 to 6 ounces. They live for about 12 years. Sugar gliders are not cheap. The price range is $200 to $600. The features the woman described are accurate. They are cute. However, as for being “the most adorable creature you have ever seen,” I’m more inclined to nominate my red border collie, Tinge, for that distinction. Then again, maybe I’m biased.

Mark Clement asked what would happen if rate increases were put off until 2015. “With lower funds coming in, we’d have to disperse funds from the General Fund, which isn’t healthy, either,” Jettinghoff said. Also looking to create revenue, Rick Hanser talked about the .25-percent income tax increase that may find its way onto the May Primary Ballot. “That increase would solidify the Parks and Rec budget. If it isn’t passed, the Parks and Rec will be the first to be looked at. We have to provide essentials,” he said. The committee will propose to pass a temporary budget in regular council session at 7 p.m. Monday. The meeting adjourned and Safety Committee Chair Josh Gillespie took the head chair. Gillespie asked Police Chief Kyle Fittro to take the podium to answer questions concerning contracting with Allen County for dispatching services. “I’d like to start by mentioning how many duties dispatchers have that are unrelated to dispatching,” Fittro began. “I found at least 45 items that are clerk/secretarial-related the dispatchers also take care of. We would have to have two part-time clerks at 30 hours each and I’m still not sure they could get it all done. This is mandatory record-keeping.” Knebel asked for a report on the state of Delphos from Fittro’s point of view. Fittro said he would like to see officer Dale Metzger replaced and outlined officer Ben Becker’s effort with the task force which generated 200 felony indictments, 60 people arrested for drug trafficking and 20 home raids. Becker no longer serves on the task force. “This is significant progress and now with our numbers, we are going to fall behind,” Fittro said. “We are like the garbage man. You put the garbage out and we come and take it away and everything is fine — until we
don’t take it away. Then you notice. We have an opiate issue — heroin and opiate-based pills. Those drug arrests make a huge impact on the secondary crimes like theft, assaults and domestic violence. Our job is to be a suppressive agent and you are taking that away from us with our low staffing.” Fittro said with the current nine full-time officers, including himself and a detective, there will be times only one officer is on duty. “When you have a lone cop working and a domestic violence call comes in, they have two choices: they can respond and handle it alone or call someone and wait for a second officer. Both are correct,” Fittro said. “They could have very different outcomes. Some situations are not acceptable for one officer.” The committee agreed that it was best to have two officers on duty at all times. Gillespie asked if dispatching was eliminated at the local level, would it put another officer on the street. “It depends on how much money we are getting back,” Fittro said. “If we don’t replace Dale, we have the nine officers but I can’t perform my duties and be on the street and the detective is needed in the office as well. That leaves seven guys to cover three shifts, seven days a week. We have six auxiliary, five with full-time jobs who can’t work certain shifts and one who can be dedicated to the job but will have to be kept below 30 hours starting in January because of Obamacare. We need 11 full-time officers to do the job.” Fittro also noted his most recent budget was $122,881 less than his 2013 budget. “The police department has been cut and cut. The bargaining unit has worked with us and let us do some things that are against contract to survive and I think the police department has given enough. It has to come from somewhere else if you want a functioning police department,” he concluded. Hanser said he saw the decision as either having 11 officers on the streets or having dispatchers. “We have to make a decision,” he said to his fellow committee members. “We want to thank her for her 35 years of teaching,” Wolfe said. “We’ll be posting for a new Spanish teacher,” Rode asked. “We have to rehire,” Wolfe said. “There are 90 or so kids and only one Spanish class.” Wiltsie closed the meeting by thanking the incoming board members for stepping up and taking the opportunity to learn a lot of new things (about the school district). “If we can help you in any way, please give us a phone call,” Wiltsie added. Rode was elected President ProTemp to serve until a president can be elected between Jan. 1-13. The next council meeting, which will take place one-half hour early for the swearing in of new members and the annual organizational meeting, will be held at 7 p.m. on Jan. 13 in the administrative building.

Menke is accused of shooting Barbara Robinson and causing her death. Robinson died en route to a hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds. Menke’s father was also shot in the incident but not fatally. The couple was shot with a rifle in their Fulton Street home in Van Wert. Also on Monday, a Van Wert man entered guilty pleas to all 13 counts filed against him. Paul Susralski, who was scheduled to have his case heard at trial later this week, admitted his guilt in the charges involving child pornography. Susralski pleaded guilty to eight counts of pandering obscenity involving minors,

Wolfe also extended a “Thank You” to the Dienstberger Foundation for awarding a generous donation of $45,000 to the Delphos City School District. “The donation will be used for instructional practices and technology programs,” Wolfe explained. In new business, it was recommended the board amend the 125 Flexible Benefit Plan, which allows a carryover of $500. Rostorfer explained that a new law took effect in October that allows school employees to take taxfree deductions from their checks and use it for medical supplies they may need. The past option was to use it all in one year’s time with a 90-day grace period after the first of the year. With the new law, employees can carry over up to $500 from one year to the next. “Someone could plan if they knew
they had medical bills coming up in the next year,” Wiltsie said. “We want to give them every opportunity to protect their money,” Rostorfer detailed. The board appointed Jane Rutledge to the Delphos Public Library Board of Trustees for a term of seven years to expire Dec. 31, 2020. “This is a reappointment,” Rostorfer explained. “Jane has served since 1987 and seven members rotate. Jane serves as secretary.” The board approved Matt Gerdeman as a volunteer boys basketball coach and accepted the resignations of both assistant high school football coaches Damon Ulm and Jeff Stant. In addition, members accepted the resignation of high school Spanish teacher Kathy Ulrich at the end of the 2013/14 school year. Ulrich is resigning for retirement purposes.
Answers to Monday’s questions: The record high number of points scored by a losing team in a National Basketball Association game is 184, in triple overtime in December 1983. The Denver Nuggets lost 186-194 to the Detroit Pistons in the highest-scoring game in NBA history. Popular TV chef and cookbook author Ina Garten, known professionally as the Barefoot Contessa, once worked in the White House as a nuclear energy budget analyst. She worked in the White House’s Office of Management and Budget during the Ford and Carter administrations, writing budget and policy papers on nuclear power plant. She left in 1978 to buy a specialty food store in the Hamptons. Today’s questions: What industry refers to customers who routinely pay their bills in full and on times as “deadbeats?” What words does Lady Gaga have tattooed on her left arm as a tribute to her fans? Answers in Thursday’s Herald. Today’s joke: Answering the phone, the priest was surprised to hear the caller introduce herself as an IRS auditor. “But we do not pay taxes,” the priest said. “It isn’t you, Father, it’s one of your parishioner, Sean McCullough. He indicates on his tax return that he gave a donation of $15,000 to the church last year. Is this, in fact, the truth?” The priest smiled broadly. “The check hasn’t arrived yet, but I’m sure I’ll have it when I remind dear Sean.”
each a felony of the second degree, four counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented materials or performance, also second-degree felony charges, and one count of possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony. The pleas would make Susralski eligible for a prison term of up to 97 years. He will be sentenced on Feb. 5, 2014. Susralski was arrested in June after Van Wert Police and agents from the Bureau of Criminal Investigations and Identification served a search warrant at his Blaine Street home in Van Wert. Investigators had identified the house as a location where child pornography had been downloaded on a computer.
