Crish explains dispatch center workings to council
BY NANCY SPENCER

DELPHOS — Allen County
Sheriff Sam Crish and Chief Deputy
Jim Everett addressed Delphos City
Council on moving dispatching from
the Delphos Police Department to
the Allen County Sheriff’s Dispatch
Center.
“The first thing I want to stress is
that by us taking on the dispatching
for Delphos, we are not going to be
making money off the city,” Sheriff
Crish said. “We will just attempt to
cover our added costs.”
The city and the sheriff’s
department have hashed out an
$80,000--per-year payment for the
service. The fee will cover the cost
of two full-time dispatchers.
Crish explained the way the
dispatching for a Delphos resident
would work.
“The call will come in and we
will directly dispatch it to the police
or fire and rescue departments,”
he said. “Actually, it will elimi-
nate a small amount of lag time.
Those calls come in to us now and
we transfer them to Delphos and
then they dispatch the appropriate
party.”
Currently, all 9-1-1 calls made
from cell phones and landlines from
Allen County are automatically sent
to the county dispatch.
The call center currently employs
15 dispatchers and if the Delphos
contract is approved, it will add two
dispatchers, one each for first and
second shift.
“We have a marked decrease in
calls for third shift compared to the
other two, so we won’t be adding
a dispatcher for that shift,” Crish
added.
Crish said if the county and city
agree on the contract, which he
has no problem with and is willing
to take Delphos on, there will be
issues that will have to be worked
out.
“There are going to be bumps
in the road,” he said. “We have not
had any life-threatening problems
and hopefully we won’t but there
will be things that arise we’ll need
to address.”
He added that if his center does
take on the Delphos service, he
would like to meet the two dispatch-
ers working in Delphos to see if
they would like to make the move
to the center.
Crish invited anyone who is
interested in touring the dispatching
facility to call and make an appoint-
ment.
Deer Creek Apartments at the
southeast end of Delphos may see a
$7-8 million redevelopment. Interim
Safety Service Director Sherryl
George read correspondence from
Developer Pete Schwiegeraht from
MV Residential Development on a
proposal with a brief description.
The current facility, built in
1988, has 70 two-bedroom, one-
bath units; and 14 two-bedroom,
one-bath and one den units. The
rehabilitation would include the
same total units with six one-bed-
room, one-bath; 48 two-bedroom,
two-bath; 24 three-bedroom, two-
bath; and six four-bedroom, two-
bath units. The new plans also call
for a clubhouse with community
room and business center, a new
playground, in-unit laundry, green
design (Energy Star) and walking
trails.
The company will relocate the
existing residents at their cost and
seek federal funding for the project.

Man to share kidney with brother
BY NANCY SPENCER
Herald Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — Kyle and Kory Mullenhour
are as close as brothers can be. Just two years
apart at 26 and 24 years old, respectively,
the pair have shared many experiences. They
work together and play together. They’re both
married with no children and both work at
H.G. Violet Equipment. On Jan. 28, the broth-
ers will become even closer as Kory shares
one of his kidneys with his brother.
Kyle found out he needed a kidney when
he accidentally discovered he had high blood
pressure. At a 2012 family Easter gather-
ing, the family was checking their blood
pressure with their grandfather’s equipment
when Kyle’s reading showed his pressure was
extremely high.
When he went to the doctor, he learned his
kidneys were only functioning at 20 percent.
“The doctor said at some point I had gotten
a virus that had attacked my kidneys, which in
turn affected my blood pressure,” Kyle said.
“My kidneys are junk. No one has any idea
how long this had been going on.”
What confounded his doctor was the fact
that Kyle had been feeling fine and working
every day.
“I had been having headaches and
migraines on a daily basis,” Kyle explained.
“I would throw up and then they’d go away.
I didn’t even think about it being my blood
pressure.”
Kory immediately stepped up and said he
would be tested to see if he was a match.
“I wanted to get checked to see if I was a
match,” he said. “I really didn’t hesitate. He needs
a kidney and I have one he can use, it’s his.”

DELPHOS — In light of the recent weather conditions,
health professionals explain that there is no time like the pres-
ent to devise an emergency preparedness plan which would
ease all family members’ minds during dangerous weather-
related situations.
The Area Agency on Aging 3’s Health Education
Coordinator Dancie Mohler said since more and more families
live apart — older adult parents reside in one area and their
adult children in another — there needs to be an emergency
plan in place to protect the vulnerable older adult population.
“In general, family should make sure someone is always
checking in with them [older adults],” Mohler said.
Emergencies can disrupt the support systems that many
older adults rely on and for many of them, independent living
is made possible only with help from friends, family and in-
home services that provide meals, home-based health care and
help with chores and personal care needs.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
describes vulnerable populations as the people who cannot
comfortably or safely access and use the standard resources
offered in disaster preparedness, relief and recovery. They
may include people with sensory impairments (blind, deaf,
hard-of-hearing); cognitive disorders; mobility limitations;
limited English comprehension or non-English speaking; as
well as people who are geographically or culturally isolated,
medically or chemically dependent, or homeless.
Close to 93 percent of Medicare enrollees aged 65 years or
older live in the community, rather than in nursing homes or
other congregate settings, and nearly one-third of this group
lives alone.
Family, older adults
need emergency
preparedness plan

Some find health insurers have no record of them
BY TOM MURPHY
Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS —
Record-keeping snags could
complicate the start of insur-
ance coverage this month
as people begin using poli-
cies they purchased under
President Barack Obama’s
health care overhaul.
Insurance companies are
still trying to sort out cases
of so-called health insurance
orphans, customers for whom
the government has a record
that they enrolled, but the
insurer does not.
Government officials say
the problem is real but under
control, with orphan records
being among the roughly
13,000 problem cases they are
trying to resolve with insur-
ers. But insurance companies
are worried the process will
grow more cumbersome as
they deal with the flood of
new customers who signed
up in December as enrollment
deadlines neared.
More than 1 million people
have signed up through the
federal insurance market that
serves 36 states. Officials con-
tend the error rate for new
signups is close to zero.
Insurers, however, are less
enthusiastic about the pace
of the fixes. The companies
also are seeing cases in which
the government has assigned
the same identification num-
ber to more than one person,
as well as so-called “ghost”
files in which the insurer has
an enrollment record but the
government does not.
But orphaned files — when
the insurer has no record of
enrollment — are particu-
larly concerning because the
companies have no automated
way to identify the presumed
policyholder. They say they
have to manually compare the
lists of enrollees the govern-
ment sends them with their
own records because the gov-
ernment never built an auto-
mated system that would do
the work much faster.
“It’s an ongoing concern,”
said Robert Zirkelbach, a
spokesman for the industry
trade group America’s Health
Insurance Plans. “Health
plans can’t process enroll-
ments they haven’t received
from the exchange.”
Julie Bataille, communica-
tions director for the federal
health care rollout, disputes
the industry’s view.
“We have fixed the issues
that we knew were a problem,
and we are now seeing nearly
zero errors in the work mov-
ing forward,” she said.
A federal “reconciliation”
team, including technicians,
deals directly with more than
300 insurers to resolve signup
problems, she said, while the
government’s call center has
caseworkers to help consum-
ers directly.
Insurers use the term
“orphan” for the problematic
files because they are refer-
ring to customers who have
yet to find a home with the
carrier they selected. The files
have cropped up since enroll-
ment began last fall through
HealthCare.gov. The site was
down an estimated 60 percent
of the time in October.
Since then, the front-end
interaction between custom-
ers and the website has largely
been fixed.
But insurers worry that
the back-end problems will
grow more acute as they pro-
cess the wave of customers
who signed up at the end of
2013. More than 2 million
people had enrolled by the
end of the year, either through
HealthCare.gov or state-run
websites.
Aetna spokeswom-
an Susan Millerick said
orphaned files were “man-
ageable over the short term.”
But she added that manu-
ally comparing enrollment
files will not work over the
long term and that the federal
website needs a permanent
fix to eliminate the possibil-
ity of orphaned files.

Today’s Highlight in History:
On Jan. 10, 1914, Utah grocer John G. Morrison, 47,
and his son Arling, 17, were shot to death in their Salt
Lake City store; police arrested labor activist Joe Hill, a
member of the Industrial Workers of the World. Despite
evidence suggesting another man was responsible, Hill
was convicted and executed, becoming a martyr to
America’s organized labor movement.
On this date:
In 1514, the New Testament portion of the
Complutensian Polyglot Bible, featuring parallel texts in
Greek and Latin, was completed in Madrid.
In 1776, Thomas Paine anonymously published his

American independence from British rule.
In 1861, Florida became the third state to secede from
the Union.
In 1863, the London Underground had its begin-
nings as the Metropolitan, the world’s first underground
passenger railway, opened to the public with service
between Paddington and Farringdon Street.
In 1870, John D. Rockefeller incorporated Standard

Nations convened in London.
In 1957, Harold Macmillan became prime minister of
Britain, following the resignation of Anthony Eden.
In 1964, Vee-Jay Records released “Introducing…
The Beatles,” an album which ran into immediate legal
opposition from Capitol Records, which was about to
come out with its own album, “Meet the Beatles!” (After
a court battle, the two companies reached a settlement.)
In 1971, “Masterpiece Theatre” premiered on PBS
with host Alistair Cooke introducing the drama series
“The First Churchills.” French fashion designer Coco
Chanel died in Paris at age 87.
In 1984, the United States and the Vatican established
full diplomatic relations for the first time in more than
a century.
Ten years ago: North Korea said it had shown its
“nuclear deterrent” to an unofficial U.S. delegation that
visited the disputed Yongbyon nuclear complex. Michelle
Kwan won her seventh straight title and eighth overall
at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Atlanta;
Johnny Weir skated to his first men’s title. Actor-writer
Spalding Gray, 62, vanished from his New York apart-
ment (his body was found two months later in the East
River). Novelist Alexandra Ripley died in Richmond,
Va., at age 70.
Five years ago: Vice President-elect Joe Biden arrived
in Afghanistan, where he pledged long-term American
support. Tens of thousands of people demonstrated in
cities across Europe and in Lebanon against the Israeli
offensive in Gaza. The aircraft carrier USS George H.W.
Bush was commissioned with its namesake, the 41st
president, and other members of the Bush family on hand
for the ceremonies at Naval Station Norfolk.
One year ago: President Barack Obama nominated
White House chief of staff Jack Lew to be treasury sec-
retary. Vice President Joe Biden met with representatives
from the National Rifle Association and other pro-gun
groups as he worked on recommendations to curb gun
violence. A series of bombings in different parts of
Pakistan killed nearly 200 people. Three Kurdish women,
including a founder of a militant separatist group battling
Turkish troops, were found shot to death in Paris. Major
League Baseball announced it would test for human
growth hormone throughout the regular season and
increase efforts to detect abnormal levels of testosterone.

ly shooting his ailing wife in
her hospital bed has asked
the governor for clemency, his
attorney said Thursday.
“John Wise is in poor
health and is not likely to sur-
vive his prison sentence,” his
attorney, Paul Adamson, said
in an email announcing the
clemency filing.
A grant of clemency could
lead to a reduced sentence or
release for Wise.
Wise, 68, of Massillon, said
he shot his debilitated wife out
of love in August 2012 after
she suffered aneurysms and
appeared to be in pain at an
Akron hospital. Mercy is not
a defense to a murder charge
in Ohio.
The governor’s spokesman
declined to comment on the
clemency request.
The prosecutor’s office
said last month it would
oppose any reduction in
Wise’s punishment. There was
no immediate comment from
the prosecutor in response to
the filing.
Adamson said a Change.

clemency has landed more

Trooper praised for arrest of man with bombs
LONDON (AP) — An
Ohio State Highway Patrol
trooper was praised for his
actions in a traffic stop
that led to the arrest of a
man with bombs and other
weapons in his vehicle.
Trooper William Scott
Davis reported stopping
a vehicle in central Ohio
for going 85 mph in a
70-mph zone on Interstate
70 late Jan. 1. He said
driver Andrew Scott
Boguslawski told him he
didn’t have weapons, but
Davis spotted the butt of
gun tucked between his
legs.
Davi s t hen hel d
Boguslawski at gunpoint
and called for backup,
leading to a search that
police say recovered 48
explosives, four guns and a
remote detonation device.
The Ohio fire marshal’s
office and federal agents
soon joined the search.
The 43-year-old Indiana
National Guardsman is
being held in Madison
County on $1 million bond.
He had worked at a train-
ing center near Butlerville,
Ind., and indicated to
troopers he had items for
training purposes.
“We don’t know what
his intentions were and
certainly that is what the
investigation is going to
reveal,” Lt. Marty Fellure,
commander of the West
Jefferson patrol post, told
the Dayton Daily News.
“This is just a great stop by
the highway patrol, great
stop for Trooper Davis
to remove those kind of
devices from the roadway
and keep everybody safe.”
Boguslawski has a court
appearance scheduled this
morning.
The Indiana National
Guard says he received
military intelligence train-
ing and had served there
since 2007, after transfer-
ring from the Tennessee
National Guard. He joined
the Pennsylvania National
Guard out of high school
and also served in the Ohio
National Guard, according
to Indiana guard records.
Wright State University
officials near Dayton said
he earned a bachelor ’s
degree in organizational
leadership in 2006.
He had been in the
Indiana guard’s medi-
cal discharge unit since
November, but an Indiana
guard spokeswoman said
she couldn’t discuss his
medical condition.
He gave police a Moores
Hill, Ind., home address.
Tech glitch
hinders driver’s
license process
AKRON (AP) — Hundreds
of Ohioans trying to get or
renew their driver’s licenses
this week are running into
trouble because of computer
problems.
The state Bureau of Motor
Vehicles says people with
licenses nearing expiration
who can’t renew because of
the glitch are being issued let-
ters to explain the problem so
they’re not penalized for it by
law enforcement officials. It’s
not clear when the technical
glitch might be resolved.
A BMV spokeswoman says
the problem started Monday
with a software update, and
the issue is affecting access
to databases that help check
drivers’ records.
She says the outages have
been sporadic. Some drivers
have been able to get their
licenses.
State works to
get word out on
human trafficking
COLUMBUS (AP) —
Ohio is partnering with librar-
ies, highway rest areas, clinics
and facilities overseen by state
agencies to build awareness
about human trafficking.
Gov. John Kasich’s office
made the announcement
Thursday, during an annual
Human Trafficking Awareness
Day at the Statehouse.
Human trafficking is the
illegal trade of human beings
for commercial sexual exploi-
tation and forced labor.
Kasich’s office says the
goals of the awareness cam-
paign are to educate people
on how to recognize the signs
of human trafficking, how to
report it and how to direct vic-
tims to available services and
treatment.
For instance, the Ohio
Turnpike Commission plans
to place posters in its service
plazas. Posters will be sent
to about 730 Ohio libraries,
and the state’s public safety
agency will make 5,000 post-
ers available to people.
Northeast Ohio man admits
stealing donation kettle
PAINESVILLE (AP) — A
northeast Ohio man has pleaded
guilty to stealing a Salvation
Army donation kettle days
before Christmas.
The News-Herald in
Willoughby reports 55-year-
old Jeffrey L. Gregg pleaded
guilty to misdemeanor theft
Wednesday in Painesville. He’ll
be sentenced Thursday.
Lake County sheriff’s Chief
Deputy Frank Leonbruno says
the red kettle had an estimated
$300 to $500, but no one knows
for sure.
Deputies said Gregg — who
has no permanent address —
stole the kettle in front of a Giant
Eagle grocery store Dec. 21 by
convincing real Salvation Army
volunteers that he was taking
over the bell-ringing shift. Soon
after, he put the kettle in a car
and left.
Detectives used surveillance
video to catch up with Gregg,
who was sleeping in his car.
State asks judge
to let killer’s
execution proceed
COLUMBUS (AP) — The
condemned killer of a pregnant
woman waited too long to chal-
lenge the state’s untried lethal
injection method and hasn’t
shown he faces a substantial
risk of harm from the two-drug
process, attorneys for the state
argued in court papers Thursday.
The method has been part of
Ohio’s execution process since
2009 — though never used —
and higher courts have twice
rejected claims that the drugs pose
a risk of severe pain, the attor-
neys argued in opposing death
row inmate Dennis McGuire’s
attempt to stop his execution
scheduled for next week.
A judge will hear oral argu-
ments in the federal case today.
Ohio plans to use intra-
venous doses of two drugs,
midazolam, a sedative, and
hydromorphone, a painkiller,
to execute McGuire Thursday.
Since 2009, Ohio’s exe-
cution policy has called for
those same drugs to be inject-
ed into an inmate’s muscle
if the state’s regular lethal
drug didn’t work. That backup
method has never been used.
The state says that’s because
courts have upheld the use of
those drugs in the backup method,
McGuire can’t challenge their
use just because they are to be
given intravenously.
Latta leads bipartisan charge
to cut unnecessary red tape
Information submitted
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Wednesday,
the U.S. House of Representatives passed
H.R. 724, a bipartisan bill sponsored
by Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH), to
repeal a duplicative mandate on auto
dealers. Co-sponsored by Congressman
Gary Peters (D-MI), this legislation is
the result of bipartisan cooperation.
“H.R. 724 is simple, direct, and sends a
clear message that hardworking American
taxpayers, and specifically auto dealers,
should not be burdened with redundant
regulatory requirements. This legislation
will make the car-buying process a little
simpler and let auto dealers spend less
time complying with obsolete regulatory
requirements and more time developing
their businesses, investing in local com-
munities and creating jobs. As this legis-
lation represents, finding ways to reduce
unnecessary red tape is not only a policy
goal both sides of the aisle can agree on,
but it is a policy goal that can actually
get done,” said Congressman Latta.
Under the current regulation, the
Clean Air Act requires auto dealers to
present purchasers of new light-duty
motor vehicles with written confirma-
tion that the vehicle’s emissions system
passed either a visual inspection or on-
board-diagnostics test. This requirement
has been superseded by standard use
of catalytic converters and new vehicle
warranties that offer much more cover-
age than when the agency requirement
was first enacted. Further, other statutory
measures require new vehicles comply
with the Clean Air Act before entering
the stream of commerce and information
provided by the certificate is available
to consumers under the hood or on the
Internet.

It is my honor and privilege as mayor to give
the 2014 State of the City. This is required by Ohio
Revised Code 733.41 and is given at the first coun-
cil meeting of the New Year.
Delphos continues to work in these challenging
financial times. The funding cuts from the state and
loss of revenue from two employers that closed
their doors in 2013 have made it necessary for the
city to take steps to keep the city solvent. In 2013,
we found it necessary to lay off four employees and
have had 10 employees retire or resign. None of
these employees have been replaced. The salaried
employees, and more than half of the City employ-
ees, are on a modified work schedule, which equals
a 7.5-percent reduction in payroll. Your elected
officials will also see a 25-percent reduction in
pay. With all of this, some services have suffered,
but we are determined to continue to give the best
service we can.
The Police Department continues to provide excel-
lent service to the residents of Delphos, even with six
less employees than 2012. Through November, they
have responded to over 5,500 calls for service, made
437 arrests, handled over 117 car accidents and taken
over 600 written reports. They have been training
both schools for the ALICE active shooter protocol
and the entire force was involved in a mock drill at
St. John’s. They continue to participate in numerous
community events like Bunge Safety Day or being
escorts for 5K runs and parades. They have received
over $16,000 in donations and will use it for differ-
ent projects. Assistant Chief Dave Clark, Sgt. Bev
McNeal and Ptl. Jan Thatcher retired in 2013 with
over 67 years of service.
The members of the Delphos Fire and Rescue
Departments have made 1,124 calls for service
in Delphos and parts of Marion and Washington
townships. More than 800 were EMS calls. Twelve
public education programs were given to schools,
businesses and residents. The SAFER grant has
been applied for and is still pending. If received,
the grant would bring the fire department back to
full staff. Chief Dave McNeal retired in October.
The Parks and Recreation Department has con-
tinued to keep the parks and pool going strong,
even with less revenue and a cool summer for
swimmers. The pool had over 16,500 visitors for
the season. The football stadium hosted 49 games
for the season and one high school playoff game.
Through donations and volunteers, improvements
to the parks and pool continue to be made. Thanks
to the many local organizations, as without them,
many projects could not have happened.
We see the services that our Maintenance
Department normally performs have suffered the
most with these economic changes. They have had
two employees laid off and continue to do as much
as they can with the remaining three. The sewer
collection was moved to maintenance department
which gives the department two more employees
to help but they are also responsible for more
work. They now clean catch basins and camera
sewer lines when they can. They continue to help
the water and sewer departments with the repair
and maintenance of their lines. They have repaired
nine main line breaks and four service lines and
15 sewer lines were repaired. They patched streets
and alleys using almost 7,000 gallons of tar and
480 tons of stone. Snow was plowed five times and
streets were salted 17 times. We also used 6,800
gallons of brine. The maintenance department con-
tinues to do the best they can with less revenue and
manpower. Our residents may see it takes longer to
get things done.
The Water Department treated around 304 mil-
lion gallons of water in 2013. New water lines were
put in from Cass Street to Clay Street and from
Gressel Drive to Marsh Avenue. These lines were
put in to make a loop for better water and higher
pressure. We received numerous grants in 2013.
With those grants, we were able to put in a by-pass
between our clear wells and three new high-service
pumps. An AEP energy credit check was received
for reducing our electric consumption and the Ohio
Department of Health gave us a grant for equip-
ment to improve the fluoride in our water. The
Delphos Water Department continues to make the
best and safest water around.
Wastewater staff continues to work on the prob-
lems with membrane integrity. They have modified
permeate lines to more efficiently locate compro-
mised plates. K-turbo and Ovivo have, with the
staff, made program changes to help with the blow-
ers and membranes. They continue to push forward
looking for a long-term solution to the problems
they face. The grant money received from AEP for
the lowering of our energy usage with the ARRA
blowers was used for replacing the lighting with
more efficient lighting and motion sensors. The
wastewater department lost two employees to
retirement in 2013: James Kimmett and Bill Hittle.
City Council introduced 49 pieces of legislation
and passed a temporary budget for 2014. I want to
thank Councilmen Rick Hanser and Jim Knebel
for their years of service to Delphos and wish to
welcome Andy Knueve and Del Kemper to city
council seats.
The staff at the City Building, along with the
administration, works to help with the concerns of
the citizens of Delphos. We will continue to strive
to do our best during these challenging times.
I’d like to thank everyone for their hard work
and dedication to the City of Delphos. We look
forward to serving the citizens in 2014.

Mirror neurons are nerve cells in the brain which fire both when the individual acts and when
the individual observes someone else doing the action in question. They were discovered by Italian
neurophysiologists in the 1990s who were studying hand and mouth movements in macaque
monkeys. What they discovered, almost by accident, is that the neurons controlling these move-
ments became active when the monkeys saw people picking up food and eating. Since then, mir-
ror neurons have been found in many areas of the brain and it has been proposed that large areas
of the human brain may act in a similar way, explaining why we suddenly feel happy when we
see someone laughing and smiling, or why we might flinch when we see someone trip and fall.
Perhaps this is the explanation for why emotions tend to engender similar emotions in others and
has been proposed as the neural basis for empathy. Of course it doesn’t take a brain surgeon or a
rocket scientist to know that happy people make others happy, while angry or anxious folks make
others angry or anxious. So, we should try to be happy, be lovable, and make the world a better
place by smiling at everyone you meet.
– Christopher Simon

Stewart vows to do job 100 percent upon return
By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Tony
Stewart is confident he will be ready to
race at full speed when the NASCAR
season opens next month.
The 3-time NASCAR champion has
only been in a race car once, for a seat
fitting, since breaking his right leg Aug.
5 in a sprint car accident. The broken
tibia and fibula caused Stewart to miss
the final 15 races of last season, and doc-
tors won’t clear him to race until Feb.
14, the day before the exhibition Sprint
Unlimited at Daytona International
Speedway.
The season-opening Daytona 500 is
Feb. 23, just 10 days after Stewart will
be cleared to get back in the car.
That’s plenty of time, he said.
“Physically, I’m not going to feel 100
percent,” Stewart said Thursday. “But
I’ll be able to do my job 100 percent, so
that’s the main thing.”
Stewart was at Daytona for the first
day of preseason testing to support
Stewart-Haas Racing, the team he co-
owns with Gene Haas. Mark Martin
was scheduled to drive Stewart’s No.
14 Chevrolet but rain washed out all of
Thursday’s on-track activity.
The 42-year-old Stewart made a stop
in the media center and was in good
spirits as he spoke about his recovery.
He felt well enough over the holi-
days to spend three weeks at home in
Indiana and returned to North Carolina
this week to resume physical therapy.
Stewart noted he doesn’t hesitate to
call his physical therapist at all hours
of the night with questions and believes
everything is on track, despite an Oct. 7
surgery to treat an infection.
That surgery was his third since the
accident.
“We were actually ahead of schedule
with the therapy when we had that sur-
gery, so it basically just pushed it back
to where we were right back on schedule
again,” he said. “Now it just feels like
we’re back ahead of schedule again. It’s
still a question mark of what’s it actually
going to feel like when we
get in the race car and try to
drive wide open for lap after
lap.”
Stewart is definitely rar-
ing to go. He’s been driving
a street car for four months
but his seat fitting at SHR last
month was his only time in a
race car and he didn’t want
to get out.
“It felt like an old pair of
shoes,” he continued. “They
kept telling me I had to get
out of it. I wanted to sit in it.
I felt like a kid. I wanted to
keep moving the steering wheel and
everything else. They said, ‘You have to
get out so we can finish doing our job
with the seat.’ That was kind of fun to
get back in there. It kind of felt like the
first time I got in one. It was that kind of
excitement.”
Stewart added he will return to sprint
car racing this year — something he
has insisted he won’t give up even after
his accident at an Iowa dirt track. He
pledged in the weeks after his crash
to work toward improving safety in
sprint car racing and although he hasn’t
worked on his 2014 schedule yet, he’ll
be racing and has a sponsor lined up.
“The Cup car is the priority right now
and making sure that we’re comfortable
there,” he concluded. “Bouncing around
in a sprint car is a little different deal.
We’ll take a little more time, there’s
not a sense of urgency. There’s not a
set schedule for it yet. It’s more making
sure that I feel 100 percent. But we’re
pushing ahead on that side, as well, and
getting cars ready.”
Buck replaces Darby as
Cup director: Four years
after launching a search for a
new Sprint Cup Series direc-
tor, NASCAR finally found a
replacement for garage boss
John Darby.
Richard Buck, winner
of five Indianapolis 500s
as a crew chief and most
recently the vice president
of racing operations for the
International Motor Sports
Association, will take over
for Darby after the Rolex 24
at Daytona at the end of the
month.
Darby, who has been Cup director for
the last 12 years, will remain managing
director of competition for NASCAR.
“What we’ve seen over the past
few years is there needs to be a bet-
ter process,” said NASCAR President
Mike Helton. “That better process is
going to give us the ability to make
a better product on the racetrack that
the fans expect to see. John will still
be a big part of all of that. Richard
will be more visible and be the face of
the Sprint Cup Series sporting part of
NASCAR.”
New coach Gruden latest to tackle Redskins’ turmoil
Associated Press
ASHBURN, Va. — The face was different, the words famil-
iar. Like Mike Shanahan and nearly every recent Washington
Redskins coach, Jay Gruden is anxious to declare an end to fran-
chise’s days of dysfunction.
“I don’t know what happened last year,” Gruden
said. “I know that interviewing with Dan Snyder and
Bruce Allen and everybody here that the passion for
excellence is there. All they want to do is win and
they’re going to provide me with every avenue to
win.”
Gruden was introduced Thursday as the man
charged with ending the perpetual state of turmoil the
team has endured under owner Snyder and recently
under general manager Allen.
Gruden was a given a 5-year contact for his first
NFL head coaching gig, taking over a 3-13 team that
has finished last in the NFC East in five of the last six
seasons.
“We HAVE to get it right,” said Allen, who led the
search and interviewed six candidates. “We need to get the fran-
chise back on track in a winning direction. … We were looking
for a new leader, somebody who can inspire our football team.
We knew it was more than just X and Os, it was about finding the
right person to build a team chemistry that we needed.”
Gruden is Snyder’s eighth coach in 16 seasons as an NFL
owner. Unlike Shanahan, who was fired last week, Gruden will
not have final say over all football matters. He’ll report to Allen,
who has taken charge of assembling the roster and other person-
nel decisions.
Snyder attended the news conference but did not speak to
reporters.
The 46-year-old Gruden has spent the last three seasons as
the offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals, where his
skill in helping to develop Andy Dalton will no doubt be of use
when he takes on the task of grooming another young franchise
quarterback, Robert Griffin III.
Gruden praised the talents of Griffin and spoke of the need
to build a “genuine” trust with the quarterback, who regressed
this season after winning the AP’s Offensive Rookie of the Year
award in 2012. Griffin returned from major knee surgery to start
13 games but publicly disagreed with some of Shanahan’s deci-
sions, struggled as a drop-back passer and was benched for the
final three weeks.
“I see every trait that a quarterback has to have
to be successful, I see Robert having all of those,”
Gruden explained. “So why wouldn’t you want to
coach a guy like that? … I’m going to let him know
that I’m a trustworthy guy. He’s also got to understand
that I expect a lot from the starting quarterback. I
expect him to come in and prepare and work hard,
and I expect him to take the blame on some throws. I
expect him to be a great leader.”
Griffin limited his comments to a quick post on his
Facebook page: “Excited about the hiring of Coach
Jay Gruden. Can’t wait to get to work with him & the
guys!”
Gruden said he will call the plays himself and that
he has yet to decide which members of Shanahan’s
staff to retain. It seems a safe bet, however, that some
combination of defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, defensive
backs coach Raheem Morris and tight ends coach Sean McVay
has a good chance of sticking around, based on the trio’s previous
relationship with the new coach. Gruden also said he’s a fan of the
3-4 defense that Haslett has used the last four years.
Gruden has been largely overshadowed by his more famous
brother, Jon Gruden, who won a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers and is now an analyst on “Monday Night Football.”
But Jay Gruden has been a name on the rise based on his success
with Dalton and the Bengals’ offense.
Jay Gruden interviewed for multiple head coaching openings
last year and had drawn interest from at least three other teams
seeking to fill a head coaching vacancy this year. He interviewed
with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday.
The Redskins had to wait until the Bengals played their first-
round playoff game before Gruden could be courted. It took a
bad day from Gruden and Dalton — scoring only 10 points in a
home loss to the San Diego Chargers — to make Gruden free to
be hired this week.

Local Roundup Sensibaugh, Binkley return in Jeffcats’ win
By LARRY HEIING
DHI Correspondent
news@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — It was
a night of comebacks at
Jefferson High School
Thursday night.
The first comeback has
been in the works for 3-5
months for two Lady Wildcat
basketball seniors who also
happen to be best friends:
Makayla Binkley returned
after ACL surgery Oct. 21
(the injury occurring play-
ing in Fort Wayne) even
after doctors told her that
she would not be able to
play basketball this season;
and Hannah Sensibaugh from
ACL surgery in July (play-
ing summer AYBT ball for
Binkley’s mom, Kim).
The other comeback of the
evening was made by both
teams.
Ada battled back from a
26-22 halftime deficit to tie
the game at 32 in the third
quarter and continued into
the final quarter, taking the
lead 41-40. Jefferson had the
last comeback as the Lady
Wildcats prevailed in the
end with a 54-42 Northwest
Conference victory.
The first quarter was a
back and forth contest with
seven lead changes. The open-
ing stanza was highlighted by
senior Katie Goergens scor-
ing five points on two long
bombs (a 3 and a 2) when the
Jefferson guards broke Ada’s
half-court press. Ada’s Alexis
Amburgey drained a 3-point-
er at the buzzer to give the
Bulldogs a 14-13 lead.
Ada stayed in its half-
court matchup zone press to
start the second period and
Goergens made them pay,
drilling a pair of triples to
take a 19-15 lead. Long-
time Jefferson coach Dave
Hoffman made five player
substitutions early in the
quarter to keep his defense
fresh. One of the subs was
Sensibaugh, seeing her first
action of the 2013-14 year.
After Ada scored the next
four points, junior Brooke
Culp stepped up and popped
a triple to extend the Wildcat
lead to five. The Bulldogs
got in on the 3-point action
when freshman Haley Wyss
hit a wide-open shot. The half
ended with senior Rileigh
Stockwell making a pair
from the charity stripe and
Jefferson taking a 26-22 lead
into the locker room.
Senior post player Jasmine
McDougall got the second
half underway on a nice move
under the bucket for a 6-point
lead for the Lady Wildcats.
After Ada cut the lead back
to four, Goergens hit her
fourth trey of the game on
a shot from the deep corner.
Binkley quietly entered the
game, also for her first action
of the year, and got the assist
on a pass to Goergens on the
left side for another triple.
Brady, Luck have knack
for late comeback wins
By HOWARD ULMAN
Associated Press
FOXBOROUGH, Mass.
— Tom Brady has been lead-
ing successful comebacks
for more than a decade.
Andrew Luck is just getting
started.
One of them should have
a chance to do that again
Saturday night.
The New England Patriots
and Indianapolis Colts, who
have overcome big deficits
this season, will meet in the
AFC divisional
round.
The Colts
are here with
the second-big-
gest comeback
in NFL postseason history.
They outlasted the Kansas
City Chiefs in a wild-card
game 45-44 after trail-
ing 38-10 early in the third
quarter.
“It’s pretty
remarkable,” Brady
said. “Down 28
points there in the
third quarter, they
just made a bunch
of good plays and it
took them until the
very end to win.”
The Colts had other
impressive comebacks in
the regular season — beat-
ing Houston after trailing by
18 in the third quarter and
overcoming fourth-quarter
deficits to win three other
games.
Easing up with a big lead
on the Patriots also can be
dangerous.
They erased a 24-point
halftime deficit to beat
Denver in overtime, topped
New Orleans on a touch-
down pass with 5 seconds
left and scored two touch-
downs in the last 61 seconds
to come from 12 points back
and beat Cleveland by one.
Brady “has
definitely set the
standard for suc-
cess at the quar-
terback position,”
Luck said.
The Patriots quarterback
has led them to 41 wins in
games in which they trailed
or were tied in the fourth
quarter. Luck has 11 of
those, the most by a quarter-
back in his first two
seasons since 1970.
This season, the
Patriots (12-4) are
8-4 in games decid-
ed by seven points
or fewer, while the
Colts (12-5) are 6-1
when the final mar-
gin is six or fewer.
Jefferson senior Rileigh Stockwell heads to the basket
versus Ada Thursday night at Jefferson High School.

Cox takes on big job
in return to 49ers
By JANIE McCAULEY
Associated Press
SANTA CLARA, Calif.— Nobody could blame Perrish Cox for
confusing his uniform, defensive schemes or even what state he’s in
these days. It’s been a constant switcheroo.
In a whirlwind two months, the third-year cornerback has gone
from San Francisco, to playing for Seattle and back to the 49ers — par-
ticipating in all but one defensive snap in a 23-20 wild-card playoff win
at Green Bay last week.
In the middle of the moving and change, he welcomed a baby girl
just after Thanksgiving.
“I tell everybody it’s been the craziest two months of my life,”
Cox said. “Back and forth to Seattle, I had my little girl Nov. 29. That
Friday when I got released, my agent had called me and told me they
had already contacted me right after I came across the waivers. I knew
I was coming back before anybody else did. I had no clue I was playing
that much, though.”
Cox earned it with an impressive week of practice. He hopes to
play a big part again in the NFC divisional playoffs Sunday at Carolina.
“We expected him to play to the best of his ability, which he has,”
defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said Thursday. “Yeah, we got him
off the street a few days before the game but he had spent the year and
however many games here, two training camps, so he knew our system
and it was an easy adjustment for him that way. But he hadn’t played
any significant playing time while he was with us and none when he
was with Seattle. Major kudos to him to go out and perform the way
he did.”
The 49ers used their nickel defensive package for about a third
of the game against the Panthers in a 10-9 loss on Nov. 10, so Cox is
unlikely to play nearly as much this Sunday. And the Niners (13-4) are
hoping for the return of Carlos Rogers, who missed Sunday’s victory
against the Packers with a strained right hamstring.

Minster stymies Lady Blue Jays
By JIM METCALFE
Staff Writer
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — On paper, the St.
John’s and Minster girls basketball game
Thursday night at Robert A. Arnzen
Gymnasium was a mismatch.
So much for paper.
The Lady Blue Jays — minus rota-
tion players in senior Brooke Zuber
and junior Rebekah Fischer, with junior
varsity players Halie Benavidez (junior)
and freshman Madilynn Schulte called
up — stayed within striking distance
until the end as the visiting Lady
Wildcats grabbed a 46-37 Midwest
Athletic Conference victory.
“We had a lot of energy and enthusi-
asm at times. We did a lot of good things
at times, especially defensively and get-
ting good shots,” St. John’s mentor
Dan J. Grothouse said. “We just didn’t
reward ourselves by making shots. I felt
we had a good flow to the game and we
hit some shots early but as the game
wore on and we missed some shots, we
lost our confidence. We handled their
press about as well as we could for the
most part. We just have to keep working,
keep getting better.”
Minster head coach Nann
Stechschulte wasn’t as pleased overall
with her team.
“I can’t fault the effort at all. What I
take exception to is our decision-making
today,” she explained. “We have to fig-
ure out when to speed the game up and
when to slow it down. We had a posses-
sion in the fourth period where you’d
have thought we were down six instead
of up six. We’re a guard-oriented team
with a lot of options; we’re halfway
through the year and it’s to the point we
have to make those improvements we as
a coaching staff have been harping on
for 57 days.”
Minster (9-2, 3-1 MAC) used solid
defense — much of it in the full-court
— held the Jays (4-7, 2-1) to 31.6-per-
cent shooting: 12-of-38, 1-of-10 beyond
the arc.
Neither team found the going easy
against the other’s defense as neither
scored until the 4:50 when Minster’s
Logan Arnold (11 points) hit a spin-
ner in the lane. Lauren Roetgerman
(8 markers) hit a single at 3:43 before
senior Emilie Fischbach popped off the
bench for a three at 3:20. Roetgerman
drained a triple, challenged by freshman
Jessica Geise’s deuce for a 6-5 score-
board. Sophomore Lexie Hays hit two
free throws and Hays a layin at 32 ticks
around a deuce by Mariah MacKenzie
and a toss from Arnold for a 9-9 tie.
Kayla Richard hit an off-balance drive at
25 ticks and the second-of-2 singles by
at 2.8 ticks for a 12-9 advantage.
Minster would never trail again, nor
would there be a tie.
Minster ran off the first six points of
the second stanza for an 18-9 lead, forc-
ing Grothouse to call two halts by the
5:28 mark. The Jays retaliated behind
a deuce and two tosses by sophomore
Sydney Fischbach (12 markers, 11
rebounds) and a basket by classmate
Rachel Pohlman to get them within
18-15 at 3:46. The Wildcats rebuilt their
lead to eight points twice — the latter
27-19 on a Marissa Luthman baseline
jumper at 1:12 — only to see the hosts
end with two Hays’ baskets around two
Fischbach singles to move within 27-23.
When Alexis Wuebker dropped a pair
from the line at 4.5 seconds for a 29-23
halftime edge.
Eight Wildcats scored at least two
points in the stanza.
The defenses really took over in the
third canto, leading to a 9-7 span in
favor of Minster. Fischbach and Hays hit
early baskets for the Jays, while senior
Amanda Boberg (4 steals) hit a free
throw midway through and Fischbach
two more free throws at the 25-second
mark. Four different Wildcats put in at
least two markers, including Arnold’s
putback at 4.9 ticks for a 36-30 advan-
tage.
The Jays scored first in the fourth
period on two Hays freebies at 5:21
and after senior Erica Saine dropped a
hoop-and-the-harm at 3:34, they were
down 41-35. However, when they
needed to get on a run, they could not
as they did not score for the next 3:29.
Minster, trying to run some clock,
canned 4-of-6 from the charity line
(14-of-23 overall for 60.9%) in the last
1:21 to seal the deal before Fischbach
finished the game with a jumper at 4.9
seconds.
Minster concluded at 43.3-percent
shooting (15-of-35 overall, 2-of-7
3-balls); with 27 rebounds (6 offensive),
as Luthman had nine; 14 turnovers; and
19 fouls.
St. John’s ended up 12-of-19 at the
line (63.2%); grabbing 30 rebounds (10
offensive) as Saine added four; and with
17 fouls and 17 miscues.
“Minster is a very good team, espe-
cially defensively. They are so well-
disciplined; they deny that next pass
so well, for starters,” Coach Grothouse
added. “We had success early but they
just force you to fight their defense for
32 minutes and it takes a toll. We had a
couple of breakdowns that cost us easy
points — turnovers, second shots — and
you can’t afford those against a team
like this.”
In junior varsity action, Minster
improved to 7-3 (2-2 MAC) with a
32-19 triumph.
LeAnn Huelsman and Ali Borgerding
netted 10 for the victors.
Schulte, Emilee Grothouse and
Colleen Schulte each drained six for the
Lady Jays (9-2, 2-1).
Both return to the court Saturday: St.
John’s at home versus Ottawa-Glandorf
(noon JV) and Minster hosting Marion
Local in a makeup game.

Ada tied the game at 32
with 3:25 left in the third when
Amburgey hit a pair of free throws.
Ada had missed opportunities to
take the lead and fell behind when
Sensibaugh nailed a trey with
Jefferson holding a 1-point lead
into the final quarter.
Offensive rebounding by Ada
finally gave them the lead with
four unanswered points. But turn-
overs by Ada against the quick
Jefferson defense made the lead
short-lived. Jefferson took advan-
tage of the mistakes by the young
Bulldogs that started two sopho-
mores and two juniors to outscore
Ada 14-5 in the final eight minutes.
Jefferson was led in scoring by
Goergens with six triples en route
to 22 points and Stockwell with 14.
“Katie has been shooting very
well as of late and hit some timely
buckets tonight. We had consis-
tent scoring tonight,” Hoffman
explained. “We had great bench
play, especially with the return of
Hannah and Makayla. It was great
to get those two back tonight. We
rebounded better on the defensive
boards the second half, just not so
much the first.”
On the glass, rebounds were
even at 28 each.

The Sequel: Saints and
Seahawks meet in playoffs
By TIM BOOTH
Associated Press
SEATTLE — After nearly two weeks of waiting, the Seattle
Seahawks finally get a chance to prove they were worthy of the
No. 1 seed they earned in the NFC.
After winning on the road in the postseason last week, the
New Orleans Saints no longer have that stigma clouding their
franchise history.
Less than six weeks after Seattle made a resounding claim
to NFC supremacy with a rout of New Orleans, the Seahawks
and Saints collide again on Saturday in the NFC divisional
playoff. Since that Dec. 2 matchup where the Seahawks all but
wrapped up home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs with
a 34-7 win, both teams have seen some of their definitions
changed.
Seattle has lost some of its home
invincibility after losing to Arizona in
Week 16 to snap a 14-game home
win streak. And the Saints are no lon-
ger seeking a validating victory away
from New Orleans after knocking off
Philadelphia 26-24 last Saturday in the
NFC wild-card game, the first road
playoff win in franchise history.
“They’re going to know what to
expect from our crowd, they’re going to know what to expect
from us, and we’re going to know what to expect from them,”
Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman
said. “It’s almost like a division game
in that sense because we’ve just seen
each other and you understand what the
game is going to be and what it’s going
to come down to.”
There’s also a bit of history on the side of the Saints. Since
2005, No. 6 seeds are 5-2 against No. 1 seeds in the divisional
round of the postseason.
Here are five other things to watch as Seattle tries to advance
to its second NFC championship game while the Saints.
__
MORE THAN BREES: Drew Brees is not accustomed to
being stifled, but that is what Seattle did in the first meeting.
His 147 yards passing were a season-low by nearly 100 yards.
His 3.87 yards per pass attempt was the third-lowest of his
entire career.
But New Orleans has evolved over the past month. They’re
attempting to become more run dependent and less pass reli-
ant. The Saints had 30 rushing attempts in their final two
regular-season games, then ran the ball 36 times for 185 yards
last week vs. Philadelphia. Mark Ingram rushed for 97 yards
against Philadelphia, the second highest total in Saints post-
season history.
“I was just hoping we have another opportunity,” Brees
said, “and here we are with that opportunity.”
REDISCOVER RUSSELL: Russell Wilson had arguably
the best regular-season game of his career when New Orleans
visited in December. He threw for 310 yards and three touch-
downs, ran for another 47 yards and completed 73.3 percent
of his pass attempts. For Wilson, it capped a four-week stretch
where his name was thrown into the MVP conversation.
The subsequent four games led to concern the Seahawks
have slumped. Wilson’s numbers dipped significantly. He
topped 200 yards passing only once during the stretch, had
only four touchdown passes versus three interceptions and his
completion rate was below 58 percent. He was also sacked 14
times.
WHERE’S JIMMY?: Jimmy Graham has been such a
vital part of the Saints offense that his disappearance in the
first matchup against Seattle was stunning. Seattle used a
combination of linebacker K.J. Wright and strong safety Kam
Chancellor to shadow Graham. He finished with just three
receptions for 42 yards on nine targets.
The Saints should be better able to counter Seattle’s defense
against Graham this time. Wright is out with a foot injury,
taking away Seattle’s biggest — and one of its most athletic
— linebackers. That will put more pressure on Chancellor and
backup linebacker Malcolm Smith.
“For us, it’s not just going not be one player that will take
that job on, it’ll be a variety of guys in the way that we play
our coverage and our style,” Seattle defensive coordinator Dan
Quinn said.
49ers
(Continued from page 6)
“We’ve been in a lot of close games. They’ve been in a lot
of close games,” Brady said. “They find a way to win them.
That’s how they got to this point. Hopefully, we can go out and
be the team that goes out on top.”
Here are five things to watch for as the Patriots try to
advance to their third straight AFC championship game:
INJURIES KEEP COMING: Each team had a starter
added this week to a long list of injuries. Patriots linebacker
Brandon Spikes went on injured reserve with a knee injury
and Colts cornerback Greg Toler went on his team’s list with
a groin injury. New England already had lost for the season
linebacker Jerod Mayo, defensive tackles Vince Wilfork and
Tommy Kelly, tight end Rob Gronkowski and offensive tackle
Sebastian Vollmer. Indianapolis has been without wide receiv-
er Reggie Wayne, running back Ahmad Bradshaw, linebacker
Pat Angerer and offensive guard Donald Thomas for much of
the season.
RUNNING PATS: The Patriots are coming off their best
ground game of the season with 267 yards. With rain likely for
their second straight game, another solid rushing attack would
help. LeGarrette Blount has emerged as the top runner after
rushing for 189 yards in the regular-season finale, a 34-20 win
over Buffalo.
“I just try to be more cautious with the football (in the rain),
keep the football secure,” Blount added. “I’m not too worried
about my footing. There’s nothing you can really do about it.”
HERE COMES MATHIS: The Colts linebacker led the
NFL with a team-record 19½ sacks then added a strip-sack of
Kansas City’s Alex Smith that led to a Colts fumble recovery
last Saturday. He has five career sacks against Brady, the most
against any quarterback not in the Colts’ division.
“He’s a great player,” Brady added. “You try to put guys
around him and double team him but he still seems to be mak-
ing all the plays. I just know I don’t have a lot of time back
there in the pocket to sort things out.”
THE LAST TIME: Neither team is putting much stock in
the Patriots’ 59-24 rout of the Colts last season when Luck
threw two interceptions that were returned for touchdowns.
(Continued from page 6)
Eric Wright also was listed
with a hamstring injury, but he
said he was healthy enough to
play and it wasn’t his decision
after he expected to play the
nickel.
Rogers said Thursday he is
improving each day.
While he began
sprinting short dis-
tances Wednesday,
he has yet to test the
hamstring cutting
side to side.
If he’s unable to
play at full speed, Rogers real-
izes it might be better for Tarell
Brown and Tramaine Brock to
remain the starters in the base
defense, with Cox or Wright
contributing in the nickel. In
addition, rookie safety Eric Reid
is healthy after suffering a con-
cussion in the first meeting with
Carolina.
“It’s frustrating. I’ve got to
help those guys out, and I’m
going to continue to take notes
as if I’m playing,” Rogers said.
“I’m trying to be aggressive with
it but not too aggressive and hurt
it more.”
Cox will stay ready for what-
ever role he is asked to handle.
This is another fresh start for
him — and on the NFL’s big
stage.
Cox got cut by Seattle on
Dec. 27, then re-signed with San
Francisco three days later. By
Sunday, with only a
handful of practices
under his belt back
with his old team,
Cox played nearly
the entire game.
“I had no clue I
was going to play
that much,” Cox said. “I actually
didn’t even know I was going
to be starting in the nickel until
right before the game.”
He was initially released by
the 49ers on Nov. 12 and joined
the rival NFC West champion
Seahawks on Nov. 26.
Now, if the reigning NFC
champion Niners move on, they
could be headed to Seattle for
a matchup with Cox’s former
Seahawks with a Super Bowl
berth on the line. Seattle must
first get by New Orleans at
home.

Ask Mr.
Know-it-All
Helmets
commemorate
winning season
by Gary Clothier
Q: I have a question
about the Pittsburgh
Steelers. Why is the
logo on one side of the
helmet instead of both
sides? -- D.D., Lake
Jackson, Texas
A: The Steelers’
iconic symbol -- which
is extremely similar
to the Steelmark
logo belonging to
the American Iron
and Steel Institute --
features three diamond
shapes representing
the materials used to
produce steel -- orange
for ore, yellow for coal
and blue for steel scrap.
The diamond shapes are
called hypocycloids.
In the 1950s, when
helmet logos became
popular, the Steelers
added each player’s
number to either side of
the then-gold helmets.
The Steelmark logo
made its debut in 1962.
The logo was placed
on one side only (the
right side) to make sure
the idea was a good
one. The 1962 Steelers
finished 9-5 and became
the winningest team
in franchise history
up to that point. To do
something special for
their first postseason
game, the helmet color
was changed from gold
to black, which helped
to highlight the new
logo. Because of the
interest generated by
having the logo on one
side of the helmets, the
Steelers decided to leave
it that way permanently.
Q: When a U.S.
president leaves office
before the term is over,
the vice president
takes over the duties.
Who replaces the vice
president? -- J.M.,
Torrance, Calif.
A: The 25th
Amendment, ratified
in 1967, solved the
problem of how to
replace a vice president.
The president nominates
a new vice president who
must be approved by a
majority in the House
and Senate. Before the
25th Amendment, a
vacancy in the office
was left unfilled.
Q: Why are bottle
and can openers called
“church keys”? -- P.S.,
Walnut, Calif.
A: Early bottle
openers, with a large,
flat shape, resembled
simple keys. The design
was patented in 1900.
Some say that the
name is used as a
sarcastic euphemism
-- clearly the tool was
not designed to open
churches, of all places.
Q: When I was a
youngster, my dad used
to sing the children’s
song “She’ll Be Coming
‘Round the Mountain.”
The song constantly
makes reference to
“she.” Who is “she”? --
M.D., Peoria, Ill.
A: “She’ll Be Coming
‘Round the Mountain”
is an American folk
song that is often
categorized as children’s
music. It was written
in the late 1800s. It is
generally accepted that
“she” is the train that
would bring supplies to
workers.

Tomorrow’s
Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
Dear Annie: My relation-
ship with my mother has
always been challenging.
When she could no longer
grab me by the hair and shake
my head, she adopted inap-
propriate behavior with my
boyfriends, called me stupid,
worshipped my broth-
ers and sister-in-law
over me, and much
more.
The fnal straw
came in a telephone
conversation. My
mother said she was
tired from being out
the other day with
a friend. She asked,
“Do all old people get
tired when they go
out?” I didn’t want
to compare her with my fa-
ther, who works hard and had
visited me earlier that week.
I replied, “All old people age
differently.” My mother then
commenced some heavy and
deliberate sighing that lasted
the remainder of the call while
I tried to make conversation. I
politely said goodbye.
When it was time for me to
make my annual call to her,
I picked up the phone and
started to dial but hung up be-
fore reaching the last number.
I have not called my mother
since. That was three years
ago. My mother is now 83. I
do not believe I am holding
a grudge, although that has
been suggested to me. I am
just so hurt and ashamed that
my own mother would reject
me the way she has. When is
it OK to say enough? -- Don’t
Miss Her
Dear Don’t: The fnal straw
was a phone call where Mom
mostly sighed? And after three
years, you are still angry. We
recognize that Mom mistreat-
ed you when you were young-
er, but you spoke to her only
once a year. It’s not a grudge
so much as an inability to deal
with Mom’s behavior, and it
remains unresolved, which
mostly hurts you. Ask your-
self how you would feel if
Mom died without any further
contact. If that bothers you
even slightly, please talk to a
professional and fnd a way to
work through this, whatever
the outcome.
Dear Annie: My wife and
I have been married for 15
years. It seems that if I don’t
initiate sex, we never have
any. I have told her what I
would like, but she shows no
interest. She just lies there
and neither moves nor makes
a sound. I don’t
know whether
I am giving her
any pleasure.
I have discussed
my concerns
with her and
have asked what
she would like in
the bedroom, but
she always says,
“Everything is
fne. I like what
we do.”
I am frustrated. I really
love my wife and don’t want
to end the relationship, but I
have been having thoughts
about fnding another lover
who will fulfll my needs in
the bedroom. Please help. --
Not Sure What To Do
Dear Not Sure: Your wife
may feel inhibited about sex,
which is why she is silent
in the bedroom and won’t
discuss her preferences. It’s
also possible that she doesn’t
enjoy sex, for physical or
emotional reasons, and has
no interest in working at it.
Instead of talking about likes
and dislikes, tell her that her
stoic reaction to sex saddens
you and that it is threatening
the stability of your marriage.
Ask her to go with you to see
a marriage counselor or a pro-
fessional sex therapist.
Dear Annie: I read the let-
ter from “Working Hard,”
who futilely complained to
her boss and human resources
about a fellow employee who
isn’t doing his share of the
work.
Everywhere I have ever
worked, there are people
who do more than asked and
people who do so little it’s
maddening. I have come to
the realization that complain-
ing about lazy co-workers is
a waste of time. Management
would rather put up with a
poor employee than admit
they made a mistake in hiring
or promoting that person in
the frst place. -- W.C.

take top priority. Smart, well-planned
moves will ensure your success and
spare you setbacks.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
-- Sudden changes regarding your
friendships and finances can be

on your part or another’s can be
expected. Compromise, but protect
what you’ve got.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) --

choices. Protect your health and do
whatever it takes to make the best
choice.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- An
open mind will help immeasurably
when it comes to free-wheeling

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) -- The way you’re living may be
challenged. Focus on your attributes
and how you can turn something you

Trapped trucker survives
hours in subzero temps
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) —
Tim Rutledge’s eyelid had fro-
zen shut. His voice was hoarse
after competing for hours with
bitter-cold wind and humming
truck engines while screaming
for help. He was losing con-
sciousness, pinned under his
rig in sub-zero temperatures at
an Indiana truck stop.
The longtime Florida truck
driver had crawled under his
truck with a hammer to loosen
ice from his brakes around
4 a.m. Monday, as record-
breaking temperatures swept
into the state. But the truck
suddenly settled deeper into
the snow, pinning him beneath
an axle.
The 53-year-old was
trapped, helpless as his cell-
phone rang dozens of times
in a coat pocket he couldn’t
reach. It had been about eight
hours. He feared he was near
death.
Then his phone suddenly
toppled from his pocket, its
vibrating ring enough to final-
ly wiggle it free. He was able
to scoop it up with his right
hand inside a frozen glove,
use its voice dial to call a com-
pany dispatcher and muster a
quiet plea for help.
“I said ‘Whoever this is,
don’t hang up on me because
it’s going to be the last time
that I’ll be able to call. I can’t
call out and I can’t answer
the phone,’” Rutledge said
Thursday, recalling his experi-
ence as he sat in a leather arm-
chair at IU Health Methodist
Hospital in Indianapolis.
Doctors said his body tem-
perature was so low when he
arrived at the hospital that just
one more hour likely would
have been fatal. Yet he was
released from the hospital on
Thursday and planned to fly
back home to Orlando, Fla.,
with little more than numb-
ness in his left hand and side
where the axle had pinned
him.
Rutledge noted that the
phone calls from his wife,
Lisa, began soon after he
missed making his typical
early morning check-in with
her.
“I used to think it was kind
of a hassle, but I always called
her just so she knew where
I was at,” he said. “I won’t
take her for granted now. She
saved me.”
Rutledge had been driving
a load from Florida when he
stopped Sunday evening at the
truck stop, less than an hour
away from his destination. As
he slept in his cab, several
inches of snow fell and tem-
peratures plunged. He woke
up to frozen brakes.
Steve Moseley, a dispatch-
er with First Coast Express
of Jacksonville, Fla., said
he feared the worst after
numerous calls to Rutledge
went unanswered. Moseley
answered Rutledge’s call for
help Monday afternoon, and
said his voice grew quieter
during their conversation until
it dimmed to a whisper.
“At one time I called out
to him and he didn’t say any-
thing,” Moseley said. “That
scared me a bit.”
His trucking company
called the truck stop and emer-
gency workers were sum-
moned to search for him as
temperatures dropped to more
than 10 below zero in the area,
with wind gusts of 30 mph
leading to wind chills of nega-
tive 35 or colder.
It took time for workers
to find his semi amid the sea
of parked trucks at the Pilot
Travel Center in Whiteland,
just south of Indianapolis.
By the time he reached the
hospital, Rutledge’s body tem-
perature had fallen to about 86
degrees.
Dr. Timothy Pohlman, a
trauma surgeon who treated
him, said another hour out-
side likely would have been
fatal for Rutledge. But he said
being under the truck likely
shielded him somewhat from
the dangerous wind gusts.
“I think just the fact that
he had to crawl under a semi
to figure out why he broke
down in a way forced him
to do what is taught in a lot
of survival courses for people
who have to work in extreme
environments,” Pohlman said.
Pohlman said Rutledge,
who somehow emerged with-
out any frostbite injuries,
should fully recover.
Rutledge said he was lucky
to be alive.
“There was another hand
in this,” he said. “If my phone
would’ve dropped the other
way, I could never have
called anyone. If it (the truck)
would’ve sunk any farther, I
wouldn’t have had a need to
call anyone.”
Deep freeze may have cost
economy about $5 billion
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Hunkering
down at home rather than going to work,
canceling thousands of flights and repair-
ing burst pipes from the Midwest to the
Southeast has its price. By one estimate,
about $5 billion.
The country may be warming up from
the polar vortex, but the bone-chilling
cold, snow and ice that gripped much of
the country — affecting about 200 million
people — brought about the biggest eco-
nomic disruption delivered by the weather
since Superstorm Sandy in 2012, said Evan
Gold, senior vice president at Planalytics, a
business weather intelligence company in
suburban Philadelphia.
While the impact came nowhere close
to Sandy, which caused an estimated $65
billion in property damage alone, the deep
freeze’s impact came from its breadth.
“There’s a lot of economic activity that
didn’t happen,” Gold said. “Some of that
will be made up but some of it just gets
lost.”
Still, Gold noted his $5 billion estimate
pales in comparison with an annual gross
domestic product of about $15 trillion
— working out to maybe one-seventh to
one-eighth of one day’s production for the
entire country.
“It’s a small fraction of a percent, but it’s
still an impact,” Gold said.
Major U.S. airlines, which canceled
about 20,000 flights starting last Thursday,
lost anywhere from $50 million to $100
million, said Helane Becker, an analyst
with Cowen and Co. in New York.
JetBlue was hit especially hard because
80 percent of its flights go through New
York or Boston, where the carrier shut
down Monday evening into Tuesday. The
airline also was affected by other airport
closures and new regulations limiting pilot
hours.
School closures took their own toll,
keeping home parents who couldn’t find
alternatives for their kids. Even if those
parents worked from home, they might
not have been as productive, said Tony
Madden, regional economist with the
Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.
“People in the northern climates are
used to dealing with issues of snow and
cold,” Madden said. “However, when you
get a one-in-20-year event like this, that
disrupts activities.”
The insurance industry has yet to esti-
mate costs, but Robert Hartwig, president
of the Insurance Information Institute in
New York, said insurers plan for about $1.4
billion in winter storm catastrophe losses in
any given year.
“We certainly know there is an epi-
demic of frozen and burst pipes this week,”
Hartwig said.
Damage to a Minnesota state health
laboratory in St. Paul could top $1 million
after the heating system failed and pipes
leaked. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley’s
home in Tuscaloosa took an estimated
$50,000 blow from a burst water pipe.
Roto-Rooter in Minneapolis and elsewhere
has been “inundated” with calls about burst
pipes and even frozen sewer lines since the
cold snap, plumbing manager Paul Teale
said.
Governments are meanwhile tallying
costs for depleted road salt reserves,
blown overtime budgets and repairs.
Other impacts will be felt in about 30
days when high heating bills start com-
ing due, Gold said, which will affect how
much consumers can spend in February.
But somebody always benefits, he said.
On-demand cable TV and restaurant
delivery services gained, as did home
centers and convenience stores where
people went to stock up. Online retailers
benefited from customers with an esti-
mated $30 billion worth of new holiday
gift cards burning holes in their pockets,
he said.
Other beneficiaries may be farther
away. Boston-based Hopper Research
says the frigid temperatures caused a
52 percent spike in searches for flights
to Cancun, Mexico, from people in
Minneapolis and Chicago.
Obama unveils first 5 ‘Promise Zones’
WASHINGTON (AP) — Invoking his own personal
story, President Barack Obama made a plea for bipartisan
work to combat poverty and declared, after a 2013 marked
by struggles and disappointments, that “this is going to be a
year of action.”
Obama on Thursday offered a glimpse at his coming State
of the Union address and its expected emphasis on economic
disparities while announcing five communities that will be
targeted for tax incentives and federal grants under a govern-
ment “Promise Zone” program.
“We’ve got to make sure this recovery — which is real —
leaves nobody behind,” he said. “And that’s going to be my
focus throughout the year.”
Obama named the new zones — a blend of rural, urban and
tribal communities — at a bipartisan White House assembly,
underscoring the type of administrative actions Obama wishes
to employ that don’t all require congressional action.
Amid a slow recovery that has not reached many at
the lowest rungs of the economy, addressing poverty has
become an emerging issue in Washington. Obama has made
it a central part of his agenda, and leading Republicans,
including potential 2016 presidential contenders, are using
the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s War
on Poverty to offer policy proposals aimed at the poor and
struggling workers.
Obama welcomed the bipartisan interest, saying, “this
should be a challenge that unites us all.”
In a rare public reference to his own upbringing, Obama
compared himself to a young man invited to the White House
event Thursday who graduated from high school under a 1997
Harlem program and become the first member of his family
to attend college. As described by Obama, the student, Roger
Brown, was the son of a single mother and was nearly expelled
from school before deciding to make a change in his life.
“There was a period of time in my life where I was goof-
ing off,” Obama said. “I was raised by a single mom, I didn’t
know my dad. The only difference between me and Roger
was my environment was more forgiving than his. That’s the
only difference. If I screwed up, the consequences weren’t
quite as great.”
Thursday’s five zones are the first of 20 the administration
intends to announce over the next three years. They’re in San
Antonio, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, southeastern Kentucky
and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. Under the program,
communities in the zones would have a leg up applying for
federal grants, benefit from more coordinated government
assistance and would be singled out for possible congres-
sionally approved tax incentives.
Roaches found
at California
chicken plant
LIVINGSTON, Calif.
(AP) — The U.S. Department
of Agriculture shut down a
Central California chicken plant
after federal inspectors found it
infested with cockroaches.
The Food Safety and
Inspection Service ordered a
temporary closure of a Foster
Farms facility in Livingston
which carried out “enhanced
sanitizing” Wednesday.
FSIS deputy district man-
ager Abdalla Amin wrote to
Foster Farms CEO Ron Foster
that the closure came after that
inspectors found cockroaches
on five separate occasions in
various parts of the plant over
the past four months, includ-
ing at a hand-washing sink
early Wednesday.
Amin said the action was
carried out based on “egre-
gious insanitary conditions”
which he said may have taint-
ed products at the facility.
Foster Farms said
Wednesday that food safety
is “its highest priority” and
shut down the Livingston facil-
ity immediately for “sanitation
and treatment” for the incidents
dating back to September.
“No other facilities are
affected. No products are
affected. Product production
has been transferred to the
company’s other facilities,” the
company said in a statement.
The company said it main-
tains a pest control program
and the plant about 25 miles
southeast of Modesto is
expected to reopen soon.
The temporary closure
comes three months after
inspectors threatened a shut-
down because of salmonella
problems at the Livingston
plant and two Foster Farms
sites in Fresno.
Council
Plan
(Continued from page 1)
George also noted that Washington
Township has returned the 2014 Fire
and Rescue Service Contract and
has requested a meeting with Mayor
Michael Gallmeier and acting Fire Chief
Kevin Streets.
George also read the mayor’s State
of the City Address in his absence. See
page 3 to read the address.
Council suspended the rules and
passed on first reading four pieces of
legislation, including decreasing the
council clerk’s pay by 7 1/2 percent to
$3,515 as other non-union city employ-
ees have seen; amended appropriation
for fiscal year 2013; establishing the
compensation for the Civil Service
Commission members and secretary to
$30 per meeting for each member and
$55 per meeting for the secretary; and
amending Ordinance 2010-33 regarding
compensation for volunteer firefighters
and rescue personnel to read “Rescue
personnel (34) shall be paid $10 per run
for stand-by status and non-transport
call. The former Ordinance set pay at
$10 per hour for stand-by status and
non-transport calls.”
Newly-elected 1st Ward Councilman
Andrew Knueve stopped the suspension
of the rules on a fifth piece of legisla-
tion regarding establishing the employee
share of health insurance fees. The ordi-
nance will be heard on second reading
at the Jan. 20 meeting. The Board of
Control asked that employees pick up
50 percent of the new fees established
by Obamacare.
The ordinance to place a proposed
.25-percent earned income tax increase
on the May Primary Ballot was tabled
until the next meeting. Councilman
Kevin Osting asked if the money could
be earmarked for a certain department
and asked if the language could be
changed to reflect that. Law Director
Clayton Osting said the money could
be earmarked for a specific department
or departments and should probably be
done by percentage since the precise
amount generated cannot be placed on
the measure. He said he would research
the matter and have information at the
next meeting.
In other action, council:
• Welcomed Marsha Mueller as coun-
cil clerk;
• Noted Councilman Mark Clement
as president pro-tem in the event
Council President Kim Riddell is unable
to attend a meeting; and
• Learned committee heads for
2014 will be as follows: Finance —
Gillespie; Legislation — Knueve;
Safety Services and City Utilities — Joe
Martz; Thoroughfares — Del Kemper;
Public Properties — Kevin Osting;
Parks — Mark Clement; and Economic
Development — Osting.
A finance meeting has been called by
committee head Josh Gillespie for 6:30
p.m. Jan. 20 prior to the regular council
meeting.

Mohler said when plan A does not work — taking care of
the daily care and foreseeable situations — and an extreme
circumstance present itself, plan B or an emergency plan is
necessary.
“With the warnings of dangerous and bad weather ahead of
time, families can ask neighbors to check in with and pick up
mail for their older adult parent/parents, make sure they have
food, medications, a cell phone and all the emergency num-
bers listed and located in a convenient location,” she detailed.
She said there have been cases of older adults going out to
retrieve their mail and falling in the dark and not being found
until morning. Another example is they go out into the garage
or down into the basement and fall where no one can see them
and have no way of calling for help.
“Life Alert as a lifeline is critical,” Mohler added. “A cell
phone would also allow them to contact emergency responders
or family members.”
Mohler is adamant about families making a plan now and
not waiting until an emergency happens.

Their sister, Kayla, would
be tested if Kory wasn’t
a good match. The family
learned that wouldn’t be nec-
essary as Kory was a “per-
fect” match.
“There are six criteria that
have to match in both peo-
ple’s blood work to be a good
donor,” Kory explained. “All
six of mine matched Kyle’s.
The doctor said we are twins
as far as our blood goes.”
The transplant will be
more difficult for Kyle than
Kory. Kyle’s surgery will take
longer and he will be down
for at least two months com-
pared to Kory’s three weeks.
Kyle will also be quarantined
for a period of time and have
to visit the transplant clinic
several times a week at first.
“I’m kind of nervous but
I’m ready to get this done and
over with,” Kyle said.
The sons of Bill and
Bonnie Mullenhour plan to
make up for lost time this
spring and summer.
“Kory is building a garage
so we’ll be hanging out a lot,”
Kyle said.
To bring awareness to kid-
ney disease and other renal
problems, a blood drive will
be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday at the Delphos Eagles.
“Everyone said we should
get together with family and
friends before the surgery and
we felt his was a good way to
do that and bring information
to people about getting their
blood pressure checked,”
Kyle said.
To schedule an appoint-
ment, call or text Katie
Mullenhour at 567-204-8560.

Bataille said the administration is working the issue with every
tool at its disposal, from software fixes to picking up the phone and
calling insurers.
Among those who got lost in the paperwork confusion was cancer
survivor Sharon Van Daele of Tucson, Ariz., who went back and forth
between her insurer and the federal government for more than a week
after her confirmation failed to arrive. Unable to get answers, she said
it felt as if she had fallen into a black hole.
She started the year worried she was uninsured even though the
HealthCare.gov website told her on Dec. 22 that she had successfully
enrolled.
“I made all the deadlines, and then I tried to make my payment,
but they wouldn’t take it,” said Van Daele.
Her case was finally resolved after an official from the federal
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services contacted Van Daele
directly, following an Associated Press inquiry to the agency’s
Washington press office.
Van Daele is in remission following treatment for a type of blood
cancer. Her previous coverage lapsed Dec. 31, and she started getting
nervous when nothing for her new coverage arrived in the mail.
“My husband told me I shouldn’t leave the house,” she said.
Insurance industry consultant Bob Laszewski said he expects to
hear more reports about orphaned files as patients begin to seek health
care or start worrying about insurance cards that have not arrived.
“As we go through the month, you bet this is going to be a prob-
lem,” he said.
Improving weather also could turn up more orphaned enrollees.
The year started with a blast of freezing weather that settled over
much of the U.S. Those conditions usually keep people indoors and
out of the health care system unless they absolutely have to use it.
