BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer email@example.com DELPHOS — Delphos and the surrounding communities of Spencerville, Ottoville and Elida have seen their street maintenance budgets mount from the latest round of snow events — for the week spanning Feb. 2-10 — which sent man-hours into overtime, strained equipment and exhausted crew members to the point of being ill. Interim Delphos Safety Director Sherryl George said the employees are always ready to plow but with the limited staff, it takes a while longer to get it done. She said the city has utilized employees from the maintenance, water, sewer and recreation departments to plow and help on water line leaks. “Some concerns are citizens pushing the snow back out into the streets

after they have been plowed, which doubles up the work,” George stated. Spencerville’s Village Administrator Sean Chapman said he would be lying if he said the crews were not sick of the snow and having to plow so frequently. “I can say that we have an excellent crew and whenever they are called upon, they respond and perform their duties just as if it were the first snow of the season,” Chapman said. Chapman explained the crews have had a significant amount of overtime over the last month and although it wears on them, they have handled it all very well. The Village of Ottoville’s Fiscal Officer Jeanne M. Wannemacher said the week of ongoing snow removal and street maintenance took a quite a toll on crew member’s bodies. See TOLL, page 10

In addition, she has taught percussion and piano lessons for many years. Keller grew up in Rochester, NY, and started playing the piano at the age of 4 and studied percussion in fifth grade. She said her strongest childhood memory involving art was practicing the piano in the living room while her dog listened and looked out the window. Keller said she was initially drawn to playing music because it was fun and something she was pretty good at. “I think that I stuck with it and it became a career because it is an all-encompassing activity,” Keller explained. “When I am playing music, I am actively engaged in the both a learning process and creative process.” Keller said there are no shortcuts to being a good musician and she likes the challenge of it. “It takes hard work, attention to detail and the ability to think outside the box,” she stated.

Rising temperatures prompt state to warn of flooding
Information submitted 2 3 4 5 6-7 8 9 10 As winter weather advisories continue to impact Ohio, officials are encouraging residents to begin focusing on the increased potential of flood risk, particularly with warmer temperatures and increased chances for precipitation. Rain is in the forecast in the weeks ahead and only a small amount of rain, in combination with significant snow accumulation, can cause flooding in some areas. “Flooding is a top hazard for Ohio,” said Steve Ferryman, Ohio Emergency Management Agency’s Mitigation and Recovery branch chief. “Residents should be mindful of changing weather conditions and take precautions against flood damage.” A midwinter or early spring thaw can produce large amounts of runoff in a short period of time. Because the ground is hard and frozen, water cannot penetrate and be reabsorbed. The water then runs off the surface and flows into lakes, streams and rivers, causing excess water to spill over their banks. “Ohio’s prolonged periods of subfreezing temperatures have caused the creation of many ice jams throughout the state,” said Christopher Thoms, Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Floodplain Management program manager. “Minor flooding has already occurred in some areas, particularly in northern Ohio.” Ice flows and ice jams are annual occurrences throughout most of Ohio. Although infrastructure and other developments have been

designed to accommodate winter flooding, Ohioans should still take steps to reduce the risk to lives and property. Flood risks vary with location and the weather but anyone who lives or owns property near a water source should: • Monitor ice conditions and water levels; See FLOOD, page 10

At approximately 6:50 p.m. on Feb. 6, Delphos Police officers observed a female, 31-yearold Ashley Harter of Delphos, whom they know on sight, walking on a residential property in the 800 block of West Skinner Street. Harter Harter had previously been issued a criminal trespass warning for that property and advised that if she was located there, she would be arrested. Due to officers seeing Harter on the property, she was charged with criminal trespass and will appear in Van Wert Municipal Court to face the charge. Officers were dispatched to the 200 block of West Clime Street at 12:34 a.m. on Feb. 7 for a domestic violence complaint. Upon arrival, officers met with the victim and the suspect.

Officers made contact with Kent and during the investigation, found probable cause to arrest him for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

ODOT had hoped for 150,000 tons to give to local communities
COLUMBUS – A request from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) to provide road salt to local communities in need has received no bids from salt companies. On Feb. 5, ODOT asked salt companies to bid on 10,000-ton increments of salt to be delivered to seven strategic locations during three rounds. The intent was to receive at least 150,000 tons of road salt that ODOT could provide to local communities where some supplies are depleted. The agency planned to charge nothing for the road salt and instead was asking communities to return the

ODOT is committed to assisting local communities with temporary salt supplies and is exploring alternative ways to get road salt into Ohio and provide it free of charge. More information should be available soon. Since the beginning of winter, ODOT has used more than 880,000 tons of salt on Ohio roadways. That amount does not include the salt counties, cities, townships and villages are using to treat roads in local communities. With 43,000 lane miles to treat, 3,000 drivers and 1,600 snow plows statewide, ODOT drivers have treated more than 11 million miles of roads making this winter, one of the most active seasons in history.

Elida student charged Roughly 23,000 Ohioans enroll in expanded Medicaid with weapons violations
ELIDA (AP) — A police chief says an Ohio middle school student is facing weapons violations after allegedly bringing knives to school. Authorities say the 13-year-old boy was apprehended after walking into the principal’s office at Elida Middle School Wednesday and explaining that he was carrying a knife and a box cutter and also had two knives in his locker. American Township Police Chief Matt Redick says the boy was charged Thursday with four counts of Illegal conveyance or possession of a deadly weapon in a school safety zone. Redick says the boy, who faces expulsion, is in Allen County juvenile detention and does not yet have a lawyer. No one was injured and Redick says it appears the boy had entered the principal’s office after realizing he didn’t want to hurt anyone. COLUMBUS (AP) — More than 23,000 low-income Ohioans enrolled in Medicaid last month under an expansion of the taxpayer-funded program supported by Republican Gov. John Kasich. That’s about 6 percent of the roughly 366,000 residents who the state projected would be newly eligible for coverage by the end of June 2015. The state’s monthly report on Medicaid caseloads does not include those who have applied to the health program for the poor and disabled. But the numbers released Monday provide the first glimpse as to how many people have successfully enrolled under the expansion. The report shows 23,156 residents have obtained coverage so far. Kasich’s administration moved forward with extending Medicaid eligibility last fall under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Coverage took effect Jan. 1. The expansion allowed those earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level to gain coverage. For a single adult, that’s about $16,104 a year. A number of potential enrollees could be in limbo. More
Among the early settlers, a young colored man, William White, came to Willshire, Van Wert County. He had been a slave and because of his wonderful physical development, his master decided to have him train as a prize fighter so as to make money on him in the prize ring. He soon became a scientific boxer so quick of eye and motion that soon his best trainer could not stand up before him. His master found an antagonist who was considered the champion of the south. They entered the ring with the betting largely in favor of White’s antagonist but the contest was short. White, with his wonderful strength and quickness, forced his right hand past his adversary’s guard and hitting him on the shoulder, broke it so completely that he had to be carried from the ring. White then told his master that he would never do another prize fight, that he might send him south to the cotton fields, or do anything else with him, but match him in the ring. His master soon gave him his freedom and he came to Willshire. White, as a young man, used to come to Van Wert to see Nancy Young, who afterward became his wife. He was over six feet tall and weighed about 250 pounds, all muscle. At one time, he and some of his neighbors had gone to the Grand Reservoir to enjoy some fishing. A party from Auglaize County was there and hearing White’s name, called saying, “Are you the White they say is the best man in Van Wert County?” “Oh no,” said White, “There are plenty of men better in the county.” “Well,” said the man, “I have whipped the best man in Allen County, Auglaize County and Mercer County and now I am going to whip you and I will be the champion of four counties.” White told him he would not

fight him. The man said, “take off your coat, you will have to fight.” White only laughed and replied that he guessed not. The man said, “Prepare yourself” and struck at White, who dodged and caught the man’s arm and threw him about 15 feet into the reservoir. His friends had to jump in and help him out and the man carried his head to one side for several weeks; the jar nearly dislocated it. At one time, White had hauled five barrels of coal oil from Van Wert to (Casto and Eyler) and drove into the alley back of the wareroom, there were posts set so he could not drive nearer than 10 or 12 feet of the warehouse. Eyler was getting a plank to roll them, when White said, “You do not need that;” taking out the end gate, he took the first barrel, walked with it to the wareroom, set it down and, turning around, said, “Roll out the next.” This continued until the five were safely deposited in the warehouse, apparently without any effort. He would not use a common axe but had one made to order, weighing six pounds, and would swing it all day with apparent ease. He would put up his six cords of wood with as much ease as other choppers would two or three. At one time during the War of the Rebellion, White came to town and two toughs that were the terror of the community determined that they were going to fight him. White could have picked them up and cracked their heads
together but instead stayed in Swineford’s grocery until they were tired of watching for him. Some of the citizens urged him to go on the street and if attacked, to give them a good thrashing, but he said it would not be right as that would be inviting the trouble and while they deserved it, if he avoided it, it was better. He lived to a good age, was a good neighbor and respected by everyone. From History of Van Wert County by Gilliland. ————— Festivities Mark Flight of First Plane The state, nation and delegates from foreign countries joined the city of Dayton today in honoring Orville Wright and his late brother, Wilbur, who made the first successful airplane flight at Kitty Hawk, N.C., 25 years ago. Today’s festivities marked the beginning of a week of celebration in observance of the flight and later this week, Orville will be the guest of honor at an international celebration in Washington. A pilgrimage to Kitty Hawk will conclude the observance. First delegates to the celebration arrived yesterday when six giant tri-motored planes carrying representatives and diplomats from foreign countries swooped down out of the skies from Chicago. Hundreds of aviation admirers of the Wright Brothers arrived by train and scores by automobile and plane. A busy program was arranged for today. The delegates were taken to Fairfield and Wright fields, after which they visited Huffman dam which leads to the site proposed for a $1,000,000 memorial to the Wright Brothers.

Kasich extends energy emergency declaration
than 90,000 Medicaid applications that Ohioans submitted through the federal website, HealthCare.gov, have yet to be sent to the state for processing, the state says. Groups helping to sign people up for health insurance under the federal law say they expect Medicaid enrollment for the expanded group to climb in the coming months. “It’s going to be substantially higher,” said Lisa HamlerFugitt, executive director the Ohio Association of Foodbanks. “Based on the numbers we’ve seen, I’ve got to believe that that number is pressing six figures at this point.” She said about 70 percent of those seeking help with health insurance from the association and its partners are eligible for Medicaid, while the rest are able to buy health plans through the new insurance marketplace. “We’re still seeing folks who would have already been eligible before the expansion took place,” Hamler-Fugitt said in an interview.

TOLEDO (AP) — A courtappointed guardian can drop her attempt to force an 11-yearold Amish girl with leukemia to resume chemotherapy, a judge has ruled. The decision Thursday is a big step in bringing an end to a months-long fight between the family of the girl, Sarah Hershberger, and a hospital. The struggle began when her parents decided to halt the treatments because they feared chemotherapy was killing her. The family fled their farm in northeast Ohio’s Medina County and went into hiding four months ago to avoid having the treatment forced on the girl. Maria Schimer, an attorney who’s also a registered nurse, was given the power to make medical decisions for Sarah after an appeals court ruling in October said the beliefs and convictions of the girl’s parents can’t outweigh the rights of the state to protect the child.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller
What’s all the ‘flap’ about?
You all know of my slow descent into Facebook oblivion. I was resistant and claimed I would never be on Facebook and questioned what did I want or need to do that for. And then I created a Facebook account and hundreds of friends and thousands of hours invested in reading posts, hitting “like” and playing Words With Friends and Bejeweled Blitz later, I don’t know what I ever did without it. That is one thing I will never be able to say about “Flappy Bird.” “Flappy Bird” is a simple game in which users fly a small bird through a course of pipes. If the bird touches the pipes or the ground, it dies. “Flappy Bird” was originally released for the iPhone in May but didn’t become the top free iPhone app until mid-January, following a surge in popularity that seems to have kicked off in early December. According to CNN.com: A tweet from the game’s creator suggested that its sudden success had become an albatross. “I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down,” developer Dong Nguyen wrote on Saturday. “I cannot take this anymore.” Say goodbye to “Flappy Bird” app. Nguyen, a Vietnamese developer with a studio called DotGears, did not reply to CNN’s request for an interview last week and has stayed mostly quiet in the wake of the game’s recent and sudden success. He gave an interview Monday to Forbes in which he said the game was conceived as a fun way to kill a few minutes but became “an addictive product. I think it has become a problem.” The game, he added, is “gone forever.” Rumors swirled around the elusive com-
On the Other hand
puter programmer’s suicide after taking the app down (which is not true) and tongue-incheek tales of time lost, marriages ended and people going cuckoo after playing the game surfaced. One such rumor focused on a pair of brothers who were playing the game and the one shot and killed the other because he scored higher (not true, either). Soon after the app was removed and people were no longer able to download it, iPhones with the app started popping up on eBay for ridiculous prices. Some were asking thousands of dollars. I realize an iPhone isn’t cheap but seriously? Just for “Flappy Bird?” My hubby has the “Flappy Bird” app on his iPhone and he plays it in his spare time and grunts and moans when his little bird bites the dust. I have played it several times. I have to preface this by saying I am painfully uncoordinated when it comes to games like this. I can’t do it. I tried and tried and “that bird don’t fly for me.” I gave him back his phone, wished him well and went into the computer room to see if I needed to catch up on any Words With Friends games. Ah, back into my comfort zone. True to form, “Flappy Bird” clones are now appearing and include “Flappy Bert” with the Sesame Street icon. It seems apps and games are like Ohio weather — if you don’t like it (or can’t find it), wait, it will change in a minute.
WASHINGTON — It is easy these days to imagine that one is living in a fairy tale, albeit a dreary one. In fairy tales, as in Washington, things are true that can’t possibly be — and what is not true can be defended by tilting the facts a certain way and catching the light just so. Objective truth, it seems, has gone the way of trolls, goblins and gremlins, by which one should not infer that Truth has taken up residence in the U.S. Congress. Cognitive dissonance is a rational response to recent news that Obamacare will reduce the workforce, which is hardly helpful to the economy, and insure less than half of the uninsured — from 55 million down to 31 million. Let’s see if we can iron this thing out a bit. First, a few indisputable facts: We are recovering from a recession, slowly. We continue to hope for improved employment numbers, even though we’re now told the jobless rate doesn’t matter anymore. Only about 3 million people have signed up for health insurance through the new marketplaces, well below expectations. But, says the White House, things are looking good. Hope wasn’t for nothing. And please keep in mind, the economy isn’t a speedboat. It’s a big ol’ ship that takes time to turn around. Next: A Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report issued earlier this month estimates that by 2017, the workforce will be reduced by the equivalent of 2 million full-time jobs and 2.3 million by 2021 — because of Obamacare. Some people will quit their jobs either because of implicit marginal tax rates that signifi-
Once upon a time-ish
Point of View
cantly reduce wages and make working not worth it. In other cases, people will quit because their subsidies go down as their income goes up. We call this disincentivising in the real world. The CBO’s headline-grabbing news has parted the seas in new ways. Republicans, barely disguising their glee, remind us that they told us so. And, this is actually true. Democrats remind us that those 2 million aren’t being forced into unemployment but have the opportunity to choose not to work. No longer will people have to stay in boring, unfulfilling jobs just because they need health insurance. As Nancy Pelosi (hereinafter Fairy Godmother) explained to Jon Stewart, one of the goals of Obamacare was to give people “life, a healthier life, liberty, the pursuit of your own happiness.” Stewart replied, “Really?” “Yeah, if you want to be a writer, if you want to be a comedian, if you want to be a camera person, if you want to start a business …” In an earlier iteration, Pelosi even suggested that Obamacare would allow people to quit their awful jobs to write poetry. Well, bust my buttons! Why didn’t you say that in the first place? Not quite poetry, but I think it has potential. Freeing people not to work has never been a national goal that I can recall, though every-
one acknowledges the problem of tying insurance to employment. This is why Republicans have argued, belatedly, for portable insurance. In the meantime, what the economy needs least is a federal program that prompts lowerand middle-class workers to drop out of the workforce. This is in addition to the many who are losing their jobs involuntarily or having their hours cut by their employers who want to avoid the mandate to buy insurance or the fine for failing to do so. Again, this is a simple matter of incentives and survival, which President Obama seems to have recognized in postponing the mandate for midsize businesses until 2016. Or perhaps he is trying to head off another health care controversy before the midterm elections? Shucks, do you suppose? Add to the above the CBO’s report last May that 31 million people will not have health insurance in 2023. Any one of these things would be bad news. Combined, they boggle the well-ordered mind. If I may invoke our Fairy Godmother again, Pelosi was the most honest of all when she warned us that “We have to pass the bill [Obamacare] so that you can find out what is in it.” Today, knowing what we know, we are left with what we used to call a million-dollar question, though it is much more expensive now: How does one defend spending $1.2 trillion for a health care overhaul that disincentivizes people to work and that leaves us with 31 million uninsured? One writes poetry. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.
Obamacare’s unintended consequences
BY US SENATOR ROB PORTMAN The more we learn about Obamacare, the worse it gets for the American people. We have become almost numb to the parade of bad news that has followed last year’s rollout of the President’s healthcare legislation — the failed website, the millions of Americans who lost their health insurance or their doctor, the millions more who’ve seen their premiums and deductibles go up, the businesses that aren’t hiring or are cutting hours because of the law’s provisions. Take the small business owner who wrote to me about having to tell his 35 employees that their insurance would be cancelled and that the cheapest replacement policies would include a 35 percent increase in premiums as well as a 33 percent increase in deductibles. Or the father of five who saw the cost of his family’s insurance double under Obamacare. I’ve heard many similar stories repeated by moms and dads and small business owners across our state. Now we have even more bad news: a new analysis from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says Obamacare will result in the equivalent of 2.5 million Americans dropping out of the workforce over the next decade because there will be a disincentive to work. Under Obamacare, workers who make up to 400 percent of the poverty line are eligible for government healthcare subsidies. These subsidies phase out sharply the social safety net becomes a spider web, a trap that those Americans already in poverty will be unable to escape. It’s a sad day when we measure success by how many people drop out of the workforce, rather than how many people are able to climb the ladder of success toward a good job. That’s not what America is about. We want America to be a place where if you work hard and play by the rules you can get ahead. The sort of place where, as President Obama said in his State of the Union Address, “the son of a barkeep is speaker of the House, [and] the son of a single mom can be president…” That sort of opportunity society encourages work, not dependency. The dignity and selfrespect that comes from a job is a strong American ideal. Based on the CBO report, Obamacare’s poorly designed subsidy system with a sharp cliff if you work too much encourages even those who want to work not to do so. It essentially makes work a poor economic decision. It sets up a system where a job seems like it’s not worth the effort. This effect could hardly come at a worse time. The Labor Participation Rate — the measure of how many Americans are actively employed or seeking work — is already at levels not seen since the 1970s. Too many workers are already discouraged. They already feel like they cannot get ahead in this economy. See CONSEQUENCES, page 10
Dems’ catch: Voters like their issues, not party
CAMBRIDGE, Md. (AP) — Congressional Democrats held a retreat this week seeking inspiration. But they left as befuddled as ever by an America that arguably likes their issues but not always the party. This fall’s elections seem likely to leave Democrats in the House minority, and may rob them of their Senate majority. Republicans hope to gain six net seats to control the Senate. At a three-day retreat by the Chesapeake Bay, House Democrats struggled to explain this political landscape while also insisting the public supports their agenda on immigration, income, women’s rights and other priorities. Friday pep talks by President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden did little to solve the riddle. Obama said Congress should act on issues “where the American people are on our side.” He said those include a higher federal minimum wage and “smart immigration policy” that would bring people “out of the shadows.” Biden, who spoke ahead of the president, went further. “On every major issue,” he said, “the American people agree with the Democratic Party.” Biden cited Democratic positions on the minimum wage, debt ceiling, same-sex marriage, early childhood education, infrastructure spending and “pay equity” for women. He said 90 percent of Americans support stricter background checks on gun buyers, an issue that went nowhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate, let alone the GOP-run House. “I can’t think of a time when the issues that most affect the American people, most affect the middle class, overwhelmingly, overwhelmingly, they support us,” Biden said. Republicans scoff at such sentiments. They note that voters have handed them control of the House and the governorships of swing states such as Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Florida. Biden’s comments reflect “a 50,000-foot view” rather than political realities on the ground in key states that will determine control of the Senate, said GOP consultant Brian Walsh. “What’s popular in California isn’t necessarily popular in Louisiana, Arkansas and North Carolina,” he said. Those are among the seven states that Obama lost in 2012 and where Democrats are trying to protect Senate seats this fall. The Democrats’ happy talk in Maryland, Walsh said, ignores the fact that Obama’s health care overhaul “is deeply unpopular in those states.” Polls suggest that Americans care more about the health care law — which divides them — and pocketbook issues than some of the topics that dominated the Democrats’ retreat. An AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll on government priorities for 2014 found that, in general, the issues Democrats cite as their strong points — including the minimum wage, unemployment benefits and immigration — aren’t particularly important to people. Asked to list the top 10 issues they’d like government to act on this year, 52 percent mentioned the health care overhaul, while just 7 percent named the minimum wage or other wage issues. And 28 percent mentioned immigration. Unemployment ranked near the top of issues for the government to tackle, at 42 percent. But only one of the 1,141 adults surveyed mentioned extending unemployment benefits, a proposal that seems popular but not highly important. Some Democrats say the party often does a poor messaging job, which helps explain why supposedly popular issues don’t always translate into election wins. Particularly frustrating, they say, is Republicans’ ability to portray the pre-Obama health care system as far superior to the nation’s new health insurance, when in fact many Americans strongly criticized it in 2008. Conversations with top Democrats at the retreat also suggested they are better at naming popular issues than devising a coherent strategy for shaping them into winning campaign strategies. See ISSUES, page 10
as people work harder, gain more responsibility, and move up the ladder. As the CBO reminds us, if government policy makes work less financially rewarding for people, there is likely to be less work. Many Democrats in Washington are celebrating this report, claiming that it gives these Americans freedom from work to be able “to pursue their dreams,” as one White House spokesperson said. What it actually does is dissuade people from the best way to get out of poverty — working a job. From indications based on research about the current 35 year low in “labor participation,” the majority of those who will leave the workforce will be young, single, childless people in poverty who are just making their first efforts to climb the ladder of success. The Democrats like to say that these workers are getting out of “job-lock.” My concern is that they are becoming mired in poverty-lock, their dreams of building a better life undermined by government penalties that make it easier and more cost-effective not to work.

The third annual Gala is over and once again “a good time was had by all.” The most significant development was the unveiling of the new restrooms on the upper level. This improvement will allow us to provide a very useful venue for parties, meetings and other gatherings. As we continue to become more innovative in our quest for funding, this one item will open up so many avenues. In addition, it will allow us to be more creative in our programming. Those of you who grew up in this area may recall that this building was once the recreational center with basketball games, dances and youth-centered activities. Although there are so many activities that our youth are involved in today, there really isn’t a place for kids to just hang out. When I came to this area in 1976, hanging out meant cruising up and down Main Street. Those of us at the museum think we can provide someplace for people to come and have some fun at the same time. We have the capability of showing movies on the big screen while munching on some freshly-popped corn and soft drinks. These ideas are only in their infancy, so we have a little ways to go before we launch. I would like to congratulate our latest recipients of pavers for our lobby entranceway, each bearing their names. These individuals have given the museum so much to be thankful for. Carl Core Jr. of Aero Printing has been an integral part of our success from the very first day I stepped foot in Delphos as your postmaster. As with so many people in this area, Carl is never one to expect thanks for all that he does but it is so nice to be able to do it anyway. The Rev. David Howell of Trinity United Methodist
Church in Delphos has been our board president for most of the 20 years we have been working on the museum. Dave also serves as a tour guide and a planner of numerous ways to market the museum. The last paver dedicated this year is in memory of Megaera Ausman, the former US Postal Service Historian from Washington, D.C. Meg and I made contact in 1993 when we began to hatch the idea of a museum and she was responsible for numerous items coming our way. She was a great friend and an incredible individual. She will be missed. As a brief aside, my wife Fran and I would like to thank everyone for the warm wishes and the congratulations expressed Sunday evening. The secret that it was our 40th wedding anniversary did not remain a secret for very long. One of the big announcements Sunday evening was this year’s motorcoach excursion to the windy city of Chicago. Scheduled for June 5-8, we will leave from Delphos at 7 a.m. and our first stop will be in Michigan City, Ind., at the outlet mall. We will then travel on to our hotel which will be a 3.5- to 4-star property in the outskirts of downtown Chicago. The Cubs are in town and so are numerous conventions, so Chicago should be a “hopping place.” While in Chicago, we will have two forms of transportation at our beck and call. First is our motorcoach driven by our No. 1 driver, Jorge. Our Wi-Fi enabled bus from Lakefront Lines has always been our company of choice. Secondly, everyone will have total access to hop on/hop off trolley service throughout the many attractions we will be seeing. Wow, do we have a deal for the attractions! Starting Friday morning, everyone will be given a pass that will entitle
them to have free access to 26 of Chicago’s most soughtafter venues. If you were to purchase admission to every one of these attractions, their combined cost would be in excess of $500. The list includes the 1893 Columbian Exposition exhibit at the Field Museum, Sky Deck, the architecture riverboat cruise, the planetarium, the aquarium, the art institutes, Museum of Science and Industry, Hancock Observatory, both zoos and numerous tours of the varied neighborhoods of Chicago, including a tour of Lake Michigan. You even get a free rental of a bicycle for four hours so you can take off on your own expedition or just ride the trolleys. The highlight of your tour will be an entertaining dinner at Tommy Gunz Garage where the staff is sassier than the drinks. Of course you’ll be right in the middle of the Magnificent Mile where the shopping is as good as it gets (except when we take you to Uncle Fun’s). What is Uncle Fun’s, you ask? It is a “unique purveyor of fine goods and accessories designed to restore your whimsical nature.” We’ll take you to unusual places to eat, drink and be merry and if that isn’t enough, you can go to Wrigley Field and purchase tickets to see the Cubs play the Marlins. So what do you get: a fullyescorted tour of four packed days and three great nights, all transportation to/from/ within, free admission to all the attractions, dinner theater, tips, taxes and all fees. This trip can be yours for just $599 per person double-occupancy. Call now to reserve your spot. Just $200 deposit per person is all you need. For more information, call me at 419-3035482. Make checks payable to: MPH Tours, PO Box 174, Delphos OH 45833-0174 and help out the Museum of Postal History of Delphos.

Jays play with heart to snap 3-game losing streak
By LARRY HEIING DHI Correspondent firstname.lastname@example.org NEW BREMEN — The St. John’s boys basketball team traveled to New Bremen for a Midwest Athletic Conference on Valentine’s Day, attempting to break a 3-gam losing streak. Many couples shared a romantic meal of a hotdog, popcorn and a drink in the stands on this lovers’ holiday but the Blue Jays played with heart to come home with a 58-46 victory. The game featured a rematch of the two teams that played in the Division IV District finals at Elida last season where the Blue Jays won big. St. John’s swept both games against the Cardinals, winning the regular-season game at home aided by a pair of technical fouls called on New Bremen varsity coach Adam Dougherty. In the Jays’ three straight losses, they have allowed their opponents to jump out to big leads to open the game and had to play catch up in the final quarters. Against New Bremen, the opposite was true as the Jays jumped out to a 10-0 lead before Coach Dougherty called timeout at the 5:39 mark. Ryan Koester scored eight of those points with two triples and a field goal. The Cardinals finally got their offense going when Nathan Herriott popped a 3-ball and Carson Manger scored after a steal to cut the lead to 10-5. Eric Clark hit a floater in the lane for the Jays and the first quarter ended with a 7-point lead for the blue and gold. New Bremen outscored St. John’s in the second quarter by three points to cut the lead at halftime down to 25-21. The Cardinals got as close as they would get all night to open the second half when Ben Homan grabbed

an offensive rebound and the putback cut the lead to two. Andy Grothouse drilled a triple but Homan kept New Bremen within striking distance as he pulled down another Cardinal miss for a bucket. Koester hit his fourth trey of the game later in the period to give the Jays an 8-point advantage. Grothouse scored on a drive down a wide-open lane and Clark faked out his defender to score on a drive before the buzzer to give his team a 44-36 lead heading into the final eight minutes. The Jays’ offense got into high gear as Grothouse found Tyler Conley under the bucket for two. Clark scored on the fast break and St. John’s lead was in double digits, 48-36. Manger, who played through painful leg cramps the entire game, banked in a 3-pointer from the side, bringing the Cardinals back within 48-39. Then like the game last year, Coach Dougherty was called for a technical foul and Grothouse converted both free throws and the Jays spread the floor for the final three minutes to seal the victory. The Jays shot 51 percent from the field with a patient offense, making 18-of-35 shots. Their defense, meanwhile, held New Bremen to only 16 made shots out of 45 for 36 percent. From the foul line, the Blue Jays outscored the Cardinals by 12 points, making 17-of-24 freebies, while the red birds only shot nine times, making five. The next game for St. John’s (11-7, 5-3 MAC) will be tonight as Bath, a 4-point victim to WBL archrival Elida Friday night comes to town. New Bremen (9-11, 4-5) travels up State Route 66 to take on the Spencerville Bearcats, who defeated Lima Central Catholic Friday night. See JAYS, page 7
OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife Weekly Fish Ohio Fishing Report! LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember: The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is six fish per angler through February 28; from March 1 through April 30, the daily bag limit reduces to 4. The minimum size limit is 15 inches. … The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. … The trout and salmon daily bag limit is 2 fish with a minimum size limit of 12 inches. … The black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) daily bag limit is five fish per angler with a 14-inch minimum size limit. Walleye Ice anglers have been catching walleye west and northwest of Catawba Island, 3 miles north from Cooley Canal to Crane Creek and west of South Bass Island around Green and Rattlesnake islands; be cautious when icefishing the offshore areas of Lake Erie, as ice conditions can change quickly due to water currents and wind. Most Lake Erie ice anglers targeting walleye are using jigging spoons tipped with emerald shiners. Panfish Panfish have been caught in East Harbor; most have been caught on ice jigs tipped with wax worms or soft plastics. ———Ohio Wildlife Council to consider proposed deer hunting dates, bag limits COLUMBUS – The Ohio Wildlife Council has received the 2014-15 hunting proposals for deer season dates, changes to deer bag limits and the possibility of allowing some straightwalled rifle cartridges for deer hunting, according to the ODNR. Ohio deer hunters and other interested parties are invited to share their comments regarding the proposed 2014-15 deer hunting seasons and regulations at open houses from 12-3 p.m. March 1 and online at wildohio.com through March 2. ODNR Division of Wildlife biologists proposed that 2014-15 deer hunting season dates remain consistent with previous years, with one exception. In an effort to provide more potential hunting opportunity, it was proposed that deer-muzzleloader season begin on Jan. 2, 2015, and end on Jan. 5, compared to last year when the season began on a Saturday and concluded on a Tuesday. A proposal to continue the October antlerless deer-muzzleloader weekend for a second season was also introduced.

Proposed seasons for 2014-15: Deer archery: Sept. 27, 2014 - Feb. 1, 2015 Antlerless deer muzzleloader: Oct. 11-12, 2014 Youth deer gun: Nov. 22-23, 2014 Deer gun: Dec. 1-7, 2014 Deer muzzleloader: Jan. 2-5, 2015 Bag limit proposals reflect the reduction in the deer population in many counties as numbers continue to move closer to target levels. The proposal presented to the council called for a reduction in 44 counties and an increase in five counties, while bag limits in 39 counties would remain the same. It was also proposed that antlerless tags be eliminated in some counties as deer populations approach target levels. Antlerless tags were introduced as a way to reduce Ohio’s deer herd and have been successful, thereby eliminating their need in certain counties. Proposed county deer bag limits: Two (no more than one antlerless permit): Auglaize, Darke, Fayette, Hancock and Madison counties. Three (no more than one antlerless permit): Adams, Allen, Ashland, Ashtabula, Athens, Butler, Champaign, Clark, Clinton, Columbiana, Crawford, Erie, Hardin, Henry, Highland, Huron, Knox, Lawrence, Licking, Logan, Lorain, Marion, Medina, Morgan, Ottawa, Paulding, Pickaway, Pike, Preble, Putnam, Ross, Sandusky, Scioto, Seneca, Shelby, Tuscarawas, Union, Vinton, Wayne, Wood and Wyandot counties. Three (antlerless permits are not valid): Belmont, Carroll, Coshocton, Defiance, Fairfield, Fulton, Gallia, Geauga, Greene, Guernsey, Harrison, Hocking, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Meigs, Mercer, Miami, Monroe, Morrow, Muskingum, Noble, Perry, Richland, Van Wert, Washington and Williams counties. Four (no more than one antlerless permit): Brown, Clermont, Cuyahoga, Delaware, Franklin, Hamilton, Lake, Lucas, Mahoning, Montgomery, Portage, Stark, Summit, Trumbull and Warren counties. A proposal was also offered that would allow the use of pistol cartridge rifles for deer hunting. The proposed rifles are the same caliber and use the same straight-walled cartridges that are currently legal for use in handguns. The proposal is designed to allow additional gun-hunting opportunities for hunters that own these guns or want to hunt with these guns. These rifles have reduced recoil compared to larger shotguns and the proposed rifles are more accurate than the same caliber handgun. See WILDLIFE, page 7

Switzerland and Japan are big winners at Olympics
Associated Press SOCHI, Russia — A pair of skiers from Switzerland collected gold medals at the Sochi Games on Friday and a teenager from Japan overcame a pair of falls to become the first Asian man to win an Olympic title in men’s figure skating. With competitors seeking relief from the unusually warm weather on the mountain trails, Swiss skiers earned gold in the men’s super-combined and the men’s classical-style 15-kilometer cross-country race. The haul gave the Swiss five golds, only two behind Germany. Sandro Viletta stunned the favorites to win the super-combined. Two of the favorites, defending gold medalist Bode Miller and world champion Ted Ligety, failed to win a medal. Dario Cologna added the other gold for Switzerland and his second of the games, winning the sweat-drenched 15K race. Cologna, who had ankle surgery in November, won the 30K skiathlon on Sunday. In figure skating, 19-year-old Yuzuru Hanyu claimed the men’s title, one day after Russian great Evgeni Plushenko withdrew from the Olympics because of injury. Hanyu made a bid to take Plushenko’s mantle when he became the first skater to score more than 100 points in the men’s short program on Thursday. On the final night of the men’s competition, however, all three medalists had flawed performances. Plushenko, who won gold in the team competition at the start of the Sochi Games, came under criticism at home about his decision to drop out, leaving Russia without a contestant in the men’s finals. The outburst prompted President Vladimir Putin to come to his defense. “He really does have a big problem with his health,” Putin said, according to Russian news agencies. On Day 8 of the Sochi Games, three other sports awarded medals: biathlon, freestyle skiing and skeleton. ___ FIGURE SKATING: Hanyu won the gold despite two falls during his free skate routine, largely because of the lead he built up with his record-setting short program. Canadian Patrick Chan, skating after Hanyu, won the silver despite three errors. World silver medalist Denis Ten of Kazakhstan took bronze. ___ CROSS-COUNTRY: Sweden’s Johan Olsson captured the silver, finishing 28.5 seconds behind Cologna. Another Swede, Daniel Richardsson, took bronze. ___ ALPINE SKIING: Viletta finished the downhill and slalom runs in a combined time of 2 minutes, 45.20 seconds. Ivica Kostelic of Croatia earned the silver and Christof Innerhofer of Italy got bronze. ___ BIATHLON: Darya Domracheva of Belarus earned her second gold medal of the games by winning the women’s 15-kilometer individual race. Domracheva, who also won the 12.5K pursuit three days ago, missed one target before finishing in 43 minutes, 19.6 seconds. Selina Gasparin of Switzerland finished 1:15.7 behind

to take silver. Nadezhda Skardino of Belarus got the bronze. ___ FREESTYLE SKIING: Alla Tsuper of Belarus pulled off a stunning upset to win gold in women’s aerials. Tsuper beat a field that included defending Olympic champion Lydia Lassila of Australia and two-time Olympic medalist Li Nina of China. The 34-year-old Tsuper had never finished higher than fifth in four previous Olympics. Xu Mengtao of China won silver while Lassila earned bronze. ___ SKELETON: Lizzy Yarnold of Britain won gold in women’s skeleton, beating rival Noelle Pikus-Pace of the United States by a full second. It was Britain’s first gold medal in Sochi. Winning the silver allowed Pikus-Pace to reach her goal of closing out her career with an Olympic medal. Elena Nikitina of Russia won the bronze. ___ CURLING: China and Britain won close games in the men’s tournament to move into a 3-way tie with Sweden atop the 10-country field. China beat Norway 7-5, while Britain topped Denmark 8-6. In the women’s tournament, China beat South Korea, Britain defeated Japan, Russia beat Switzerland and Denmark topped the U.S., all but eliminating the Americans from the playoffs. ___ ICE HOCKEY: Canada topped Austria 6-0 in the preliminary rounds of men’s hockey. Also, Sweden beat Switzerland 1-0, the Czech Republic downed Latvia 4-2 and Finland defeated Norway 6-1. ———————No chance Russia will look past the USA this time: As horror movies go, Dmitry Chernyshenko makes no claims to be a connoisseur or critic. Yet he had no problem editing the list of films that haunted his childhood down to three. “Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th,” the head of the Sochi 2014 organizing committee said Friday. And the third? He smirked. “Miracle on Ice,” Chernyshenko answered. The film depicting the upset win by a team made up mostly of U.S. college hockey players over the Soviet Union’s dynastic “Big Red Machine” at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics is actually titled “Miracle.” But everyone old enough to remember the game — Chernyshenko was 11 at the time — knows exactly what he was talking about. “We all grew up in the culture that hockey is a religion in our country,” Chernyshenko said, “and we were educated by this very dramatic story of the competition between our two great countries.” That rivalry is renewed today inside the Bolshoy Ice Dome in Sochi, though this time it’s only a preliminary-round game instead of a semifinal. What’s also different is the diminished tension surrounding this encounter. The 1980 game was played against the backdrop of a stillsimmering Cold War, portrayed as a surrogate battle of good vs. evil. Which side was which depended largely on where you viewed it from.

By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2014 You will be concerned with helping those in need this year. Your dedication will be respected and admired by the people you encounter along the way. You have a great sense of what will work, and therefore you should find the success you’re searching for. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you haven’t been taking care of personal paperwork, get started. Someone you have a deal with may not fulfill a promise. Be ready to take over. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Uncertainty regarding an important relationship will make you feel upset. Worry won’t help, while reacting mindfully will help you find a solution that will suit everyone involved. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Make an effort to get to know your peers better. You should consider combining business with pleasure if you want to get ahead. You could encounter some serious difficulties while traveling, so be extra cautious. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You’ll be able to work with fine detail. Pursue a creative project while getting together with friends and socializing. Romance can be yours if you make plans early. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Don’t let depression get you down. Stop doing so much for everyone around you and start doing things for yourself. Avoid anyone using emotional blackmail to get his or her way. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Do something that will stimulate your mind and get you moving in a positive direction. Make plans to take a short trip or catch up on correspondence. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Consider making a career move. Look at how you could use your skills more diversely. You have more to offer than you realize. Redo your resume and send it to potential employers. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You’ll be caught between wanting to say something and not feeling confident enough to do so. Don’t back down; it will only grate on your nerves. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Choose your words carefully. You may be taken the wrong way. Get involved in some sort of creative endeavor that will allow you to develop your talents. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You’ll be attracted to someone or something mysterious or unusual. Ask for a favor or advice from a close friend. Don’t consider contributing cash to a joint financial venture. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Don’t overdo it or let anyone take advantage of your good nature. Take care of personal business and remember that charity begins at home. Emotional manipulation must be counteracted. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Stop thinking about the things you would like to do and start putting your plans into motion. You can make things happen if you take the initiative. Strive for success and recognition. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2014 Your goals are within reach. With concentration and dedication, the hopes and dreams you have been harboring for so long can be realized. Voice your opinions with confidence. If you maintain your focus and determination, this will prove to be a great year for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Put your abilities in the spotlight. Demonstrate your skills to those in a position to help you advance. Seizing an opportunity will give you a chance to improve your financial situation. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You have been craving companionship. Enjoy a little romance or devote time to someone you think is special. Memories will help you choose the right path. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Business meetings and professional functions will play an important role today. By conveying helpful suggestions to your superiors, you will encourage your advancement and gain the chance to explore new challenges. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Show your family how much you care. A trip or time spent word toward the same domestic goal will create strong new bonds and strengthen old ones. Your efforts and concerns will be appreciated. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Social engagements and other group gatherings should be avoided. You will be hypersensitive to the opinions of others. Rather than risk hurt feelings, treat yourself to some peace and quiet. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don’t be tempted to divulge personal information, even if those around you are curious about your private life. If you let something slip, you’ll jeopardize an important relationship. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- One way to increase your status is to make yourself visible in a charitable organization. Support a worthy cause or improve your networking skills to attract the attention of someone influential. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you’re feeling bored and restless, now would be an ideal time to contact some of your old friends. You may decide to change your routine by attending a sports event, concert or reunion. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- People you live or deal with daily will be frustrating. Airing your opinions will only make matters worse. Distance yourself from the situation and spend time doing something that makes you happy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Your charisma, charm and personality will generate positive attention. Newfound friends will brighten your life, not to mention your personal prospects. Plan to have some fun. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Don’t try to persuade others to your way of thinking. They will not be receptive to your comments, and you could end up causing an argument. Keep your opinions to yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Set aside your worries for today, and get involved in a pleasurable pastime. Participate in some fun and games with family members or friends who enjoy pursuits similar to yours. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2014 This will be your year to shine. Your energy, creativity and intuition levels are at an all-time high. Goals

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Disagreements and confrontations will not resolve pending issues. Your reputation will be at risk if you argue about unimportant matters. Let some things slide in order to avoid alienating your peers. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Avoid uncomfortable situations by using discretion. Although you may favor one person over another, giving too much attention to someone will not help you gain overall support. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Others will be impressed by your achievements if you stop procrastinating and start acting. With persistence and planning, you can clear your agenda for more pleasurable activities. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Get rid of tension by taking care of household chores or doing something physical. You will be surprised how much more relieved and relaxed you feel in a clean and comfortable environment. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Your social life may need a pick-me-up. Join a service, club or organization and meet new people. Sharing common interests will stimulate your senses and improve your outlook. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It is never a good idea to flaunt your wealth around strangers. Be especially careful with your valuable possessions. A lack of vigilance on your part could result in loss.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Concentrate your attentions on your family and loved ones. Satisfying relationships require nurturing and effort. There will be plenty of opportunities in the future to deal with career concerns. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You will need to be more assertive in your efforts to move ahead in the workplace.

Keller said she identifies with all kinds of music and often gets inspired by seeing a great performance or concert by another musician. She said the experience makes her want to go home and work. “As a musician, I am inspired by musicality and the quest for perfection in live musical performance,” she said with enthusiasm. “When I listen to various genres of music, I listen for and appreciate actual talent and fresh ideas.” She said when one learns music, initially one must learn the rules and what musical ideas are by imitating their teacher or recordings. Eventually, one can
learn to develop their own ideas. “I think the longer I am a performer and musician, the more individual and unique interpretation I can bring to the music,” Keller said. “My music has evolved over time to accommodate my own voice.” Keller said she most enjoys playing music by herself and with other people; chamber groups and orchestras and performing solo or with percussion ensembles. She doesn’t have any one favorite performer but said one of her favorite pieces of music for a soloist is the Chaconne by Johann Sebastian Bach from his Partita No. 2 in D minor for violin. “It is a beautiful piece on any
instrument and I have played it on marimba,” she said. Keller said people are affected differently by various performances, whether it is an orchestra concert or a solo recital. “I always appreciate it when someone is moved or inspired by something I do,” she said. With regard to the art world, Keller said she both loves and hates the competitiveness of it. “On the one hand, it forces me to keep advancing at music and to think creatively about potential opportunities,” she detailed. “On the other hand, it makes it very hard to get work.” Keller said some of the best advice she’s been given relates to simple technical matters regarding practicing and performance.

In the face of these challenges, we need pro-growth policies that create opportunity and help the unemployed get back in a job, policies that help the poor become part of our vibrant middle class. Obamacare is the opposite of that. I’ve spoken with many small businesses that tell me they are holding back on hiring new employees because of the costs associated with the President’s healthcare law. We also know that Obamacare will result in the equivalent of a one percent pay cut for the American worker. Democrats want to claim that Obamacare has no effect on job creation or, even more unbelievably, that it is a net positive. And yet, just this week, the President delayed
the employer mandate in Obamacare for yet another year. It makes one wonder, if the policies contained in Obamacare are so beneficial to the American people and the economy, why has the Administration delayed or amended provision after provision of the law? Whatever the good intentions were behind Obamacare when it was created, those intentions have been undermined by the reality of its implementation. Despite promises to the contrary, it is reducing jobs. It drives up cost. It takes away healthcare coverage people need for themselves and for their families. And now we know it undermines work, too. The need to repeal it and replace it with reforms that work to lower costs and expand coverage without killing jobs is now more urgent than ever.

“They were up all hours of the day and night, whenever they were needed, which took a toll on their bodies,” Wannemacher empathized. She said throughout the week, each has ended up sick and in bed at one point or another. Elida’s Village Administrator Scott C. Fessler said crews for the village have done an exceptional job keeping up with the snow. “It has been a group effort with employees from all departments pitching in to get the job done,” Fessler stated. The cost of street maintenance during the last round of storms has put a sizeable dent in each of the four municipalities’ budgets. George said the city is working with a temporary budget and budget numbers are not set in stone. “Currently, we have not exceeded our budget for salt but our overtime line item has exceeded the budgeted amount,” George reported. Including water main breaks, plowing, salt applications, snow removal and equipment repair, rental and fuel, Delphos used 573 manhours and spent a total of $24,260. Chapman said the village does not have a specific budget for winter street maintenance; instead, the costs are incorporated into the overall budget through several different line items. He said it’s difficult to say if the village has exceeded the allocated amount for winter maintenance because the budget is calculated based on an annual basis, not just for the winter season. “I think it’s safe to say that we have spent more on overtime so far this year than we have in prior years,” Chapman added. “The same holds true for the amount of fuel/gasoline we have used and the amount of time spent on snow removal.” Spencerville’s estimated cost of snow removal was $13,140 and included 100 labor-hours, equipment costs, 10 tons of salt and equipment repairs. “I’m sure the budget is strained with the costs but all in all, the village is in good shape financially,” Ottoville’s Wannemacher reported.
She said the village’s approximate cost was $2,515, which included 90 labor-hours, in-house repair of a snow plow, 120 gallons of diesel fuel and an application of stone on the slick spots and at stop signs. Fessler said Elida is proposing to budget $9,000 for snow supplies in 2014. “The village has not exceeded its budget but we are keeping a close eye on expenses,” Fessler explained. Elida utilized 76 man-hours, 14 tons of salt and had equipment costs for two dump trucks, a back hoe and service truck for a total of $5,813.68. During these cyclic snow events, resident and crew safety are at the forefront of officials’ minds. George said one of Delphos’ concerns is for the safety of the employees working in the cold temperatures. “Crew members spent hours upon hours in frigid temperatures repairing water main breaks and then they were called out to plow,” George stated. Chapman said safety is always a concern ,especially with the amount of snow cover the village has had. He said larger piles of snow create sight issues for vehicular and pedestrian traffic. “I would say the number one safety concern with plowing is driver fatigue and the repetition of driving a truck around town for hours on end,” Chapman stated. “We have been able to mix things up by alternating drivers.” Wannemacher said after the snow removal, crews were out on the streets and busy patching 8- to 12-inch deep potholes caused by the cold with cold mix. She said some of the potholes were being repaired for the second time. “Our guys (three crew members) were very good at coming out to plow during and after the snow fall,” Wannemacher detailed. “They tried to keep the industrial park open so workers could get to their jobs and the commercial areas open to accommodate their patrons, as well as the residential areas for all who had to get out.”
Poor Service Uncle Sam is tired of the poor service of the N.O. Railroad. A notice has been put up at the post office advertising for bids for carrying the mail from Delphos to Vaughnsville and return, each day except Sunday, via Rushmore and Rimer. Sealed bids will be received by Postmaster Weger until Nov. 29 and the lowest approved bidder will be given the contract for the star mail route for six months, commencing Jan. 19, 1899, and ending June 30, 1899. Similar routes will be established all along the line of the Northern Ohio railroad from Delphos to Akron, as it is the intention of the government to take away the mail service from the Northern Ohio, on account of their poor train service, only one train each way a day, and that a very slow one, connections being frequently missed, it is said. Delphos Herald, Nov. 12, 1899 ————— New Arrangement Affecting Dispatching of Mail Beginning Monday,
(Continued from page 1)
a change was made in the dispatch of mail from the Delphos post office. The pouches for Clover Leaf eastbound train No. 6 due at 6:25 a.m. and for east-bound P, Ft. W. & C. train No. 6 due at 6:50 a.m. are now closed at 7:30 p.m. standard time. Under the old arrangement the mail carrier very seldom had time to get to the post office after the Clover Leaf train arrived to get mail for the Penna train and the mail clerks did not have time to give him the mail for both trains when he went to the Clover Leaf. To relieve this seeming embarrassment in the dispatch of mail, the Delphos office has made arrangements to pouch on east-bound P., Ft. W. & C. newspaper train No. 18 at 8:00 a.m. every day except Sunday. The pouch is closed at 7:15 a.m. standard time. The early rising businessman who receives a letter requiring an immediate answer can get his letter off at once through the pouch service on No. 18. P.S.

Outdated Ordinances San Francisco: When police recently stopped a theater performance after midnight under terms of an almost forgotten ordinance, they started something. A newspaperman started to find out what city laws were more honored on the breach than in the performance. Here are just a few of the things illegal in San Francisco. Playing ball in the street. Begging on the street. Beating carpet on the street. Playing poker in a bar room. Distributing circulars or dodgers on the street. Clairvoyance, palmistry and fortune telling. Minors attending dance halls or appearing on the street at night unaccompanied by parents. Wearing hats in places of amusement - only skull caps and tight lace coverings are permitted. Riding another person’s horse without permission. Carrying packages on a pole over the shoulder. Delphos Herald, Dec. 8, 1928 (Continued in next Saturday’s paper)

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting and Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)
For high-risk patients with long-term and severely blocked or narrowed arteries, combining coronary artery bypass grafting, implanting cardioverter defibrillator and medication has significantly improved outcomes for these patients. In the coronary artery bypassing, the surgeon removes a vein taken from the leg or chest. At times, an artery from the wrist may also be used. One end of the graft is attached above the blockage and the other end below, bypassing the blockage to reach the heart muscle. An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is then placed in the chest or abdomen. The ICD uses electrical pulses or shocks to help control lifethreatening arrhythmias, especially those that can cause sudden cardiac arrest. Should the heart stop beating, blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs, usually causing death if not treated within minutes.
• Secure any structures and materials located in high-risk areas; • Create a plan to leave high-risk areas in case of emergency; and • Avoid ice jams; do not walk or drive on or below the affected areas. Flooding has damaging effects on homeowners. Residents should be mindful that flood insurance is not included in homeowners insurance. It is recommended that all Ohio residents visit FloodSmart.gov or call 1-800-427-2419 to learn how to prepare for floods, how to purchase a flood insurance policy and the benefits of protecting your home or property investment against flooding. Contact an insurance agent for more information.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters that most Americans support her party’s agenda for women. It includes better childhood education, affordable childcare and “equal pay for equal work.” But Pelosi demurred when asked to explain why, in light of that, Democrats aren’t on a stronger track in midterm elections. “This is about policy, this is about people,” she said. “We’ll leave the third P, politics, to another day.” Democrats disagree on how to discuss the growing divide between high-income earners and middle-class workers whose wages have largely stayed flat for many years. One top Democratic lawmaker, who would discuss the sensitive issue only on condition of anonymity, said he is incensed when his party’s candidates denounce “income equality,” because many voters see it as contrary to the American dream of advancing and benefiting from hard work. Yet Biden jumped right in Friday. “They talk about the fact that we shouldn’t be talking about income inequality,” he told House Democrats. “I think it would be a sin if we didn’t talk about income inequality.” When he was elected to the Senate in 1972, Biden said, “a CEO made about 25 times more than the lowest-paid employee.” Now, he said, it’s 240 times greater. Democrats also showed divisions on which GOP-blocked initiatives to highlight later this month. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., called on Democrats to start a “discharge petition” to try to force House Republican leaders to bring a Senate-passed immigration bill to a House vote.

Linda had two weeks to live. Nine years ago.
The note read, “Please keep Linda alive two more weeks so she can go to her daughter’s wedding.” Other doctors had found Linda’s heart was too weak for surgery and too sick for medicines. But the cardiologists at Lima Memorial refused to give up, and tried a new combination of drugs to keep Linda going. Linda went to the wedding and eventually had her surgery. Nine years later, Linda has two grandchildren – living proof that you’ll find the best heart and vascular care at Lima Memorial.

75 Years Ago – 1939 St. John’s High School cagers, playing a fine brand of basketball, won from Decatur Catholic High at Decatur Tuesday night by a score of 32 to 18. The Blue and Gold forces, in fact, placed a double win to their credit on this occasion, the Best Evers winning the preliminary contest with the Decatur seconds by a score of 13 to 7. According to Lyman Strong, Lima architect, work on the four Delphos WPA projects, swimming pool, athletic field, stadium and public comfort stations, should get underway in the city early this spring. Strong, who had charge of the drawing up of the plans for the improvements, was present at the meeting of city council and gave reports of the progress being made. The Jefferson Wildcats scored a double win over the Lafayette Wolves Tuesday night, the Varsity Wildcats winning in easy style 36 to 27 and the Junior High “Kittens” making their starting debut of the year took the Lafayette reserves into camp 29 to 14. Van Meter had the best field goal average with four baskets in four attempts for a perfect evening.
“I am so thankful for Donatos and for Donate Life,” said Dumas. “This promotion and partnership has the potential to impact so many people, just the way my brother Taylor did when he died. I started working at Donatos a month after his death and I proudly share my story with anyone who asks about the green bracelet I wear in his memory.” The four-week promotion, which runs through March 9, will feature Dumas’ story on box-toppers, drive-through window clings and counter cards with Donate Life informational and registration brochures in Allen County.

Answers to Friday’s questions: The highest income tax rate ever set in the U.S. was 94 percent on taxable income over $200,000, in 1944 and 1945, during World War II. That $200,000 would be about $2.6 million in today’s dollars. In 2009, Rat Island, part of the sprawling Aleutian Islands chain off the coast of Alaska, was declared free of its namesake pest after 229 years. The remote island, home to a national wildlife refuge, was named for the rats that overran it after scurrying ashore from a sinking Japanese ship in 1780. It was renamed Hawadax Island, its Aleut name before the rat invasion. Today’s questions: How many years did it take the world’s population to grow from six billion to seven billion people? In 1592, England’s Queen Elizabeth I banned the sale of what food item — except for Good Friday, Christmas and funerals? Answers in Tuesday’s Herald.
