VAN WERT —Will Ohio treat the Lincoln Highway with as much respect as other states? That is the hope as representatives of several chapters of the Ohio Lincoln Highway Association (OLHA) met this week with St. Sen. Cliff Hite to discuss what can be done. Larry Lee of the Western Ohio Chapter of the Lincoln Highway Association explained that goals were established when the chapter joined with the Mid-Ohio and the Eastern Ohio chapters last year. “One of the things we saw as missing was good signage for the Lincoln Highway,” he related. “Van Wert County is pretty well covered but if you get into the counties east of us, the Historic Byway markers are pretty sparse. The Ohio Department of Transportation, well, it’s a real struggle to work through their bureaucracy to get money or signs to put up. So one of the goals we established was to find a way to better mark the highway across the state.” He added that another goal was to find ways to promote the highway both as an economic value to the area and in the area of travel and tourism. With a meeting last Tuesday in Columbus, Van Wert County acting Economic Development Director Sarah Smith joined Hite and several officials from the OLHA for a discussion about the highway. “We talked about several possibilities. One of them is Sen. Hite is going to have a proclamation of the 100th year of the highway. That will be presented in Columbus,” said Lee. “He also talked about trying to find some dollars for the Ohio Lincoln Highway Association. Those dollars would be earmarked for more signage, both for the current route and for the 1913 route that went down through Lima and Kenton and Ada, and that way. We would seek to get signage for those earlier routes of the Lincoln Highway as well.” See HIGHWAY, page 10

Hoehn earns platoon chief
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor nspencer@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — Twenty-six-year Delphos Fire and Rescue veteran Roy Hoehn has been promoted to platoon chief. Hoehn started with the city in September 1988 as a volunteer EMT-B and worked his way through fire school to earn a position on the volunteer fire squad. In June1993, he took the position of full-time firefighter-EMT. “During the past 20 years, I participated in several hazardous material training classes as well as continuing education classes,” Hoehn said. “I also became a certified fire safety inspector and an American Heart Association BLS Instructor teaching CPR and first aid. Three years ago, I went back to school to become an Advanced EMT.” Hoehn said he enjoys his career and where he gets to work. “It has been a privilege to serve the citizens of Delphos,” Hoehn said. “I am honored to employ all of my training and fire officer education to culminate my career as platoon chief.”

Local Girl Scouts earn Scouting’s highest honor
Information submitted Four local Girl Scouts were among those who received the esteemed Girl Scout Gold Award from Girl Scouts of Western Ohio in a ceremony held recently at The University of Dayton. The Girl Scout Gold Award recipients from the area include: Kimberly Hoffman of Delphos, Taryn Homier of Cloverdale; and Elaina Maag and Kristen Maag of Fort Jennings. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award that Girl Scouts in grades 9–12 may earn. The efforts put forth to earn this award express a special commitment by the recipient to herself, her community and her future. The required steps for this award are chosen to help Girl Scouts develop 21st-century skills, practice leadership, explore a need in the community and the world and learn more about themselves. Some criterion for the girls’ project includes community involvement outside of the Girl Scout structure, being innovative, project sustainability and taking action to educate and inspire others. Approximately six percent of Girl Scouts nationwide earn this award. At least 80 hours have been dedicated to a project over a time span of one to two years. Hoffman is a 2013 St. John’s High School graduate who attends Bowling Green State University, majoring in graphic design and computer animation. She chose to center her Gold Award Project on youth science education. Her project was called “Exploring Science Day.” She approached the local library to sponsor science workshops for preschool and elementary students. With the librarians’ guidance, she researched science activities for kids and created two workshops (the Five Senses and Science of Construction). Hoffman recruited and trained volunteers from the community to facilitate the sessions. The volunteers presented fun, handson experiments and were knowledgeable about the science behind the activity and how to interact with the students. In addition, she created Exploring Science Kits that can be checked out from the library, so that children can do science experiments at home using common household items. This will allow her project to reach a wider range of children and be a community resource for inspiring future scientists. See SCOUTS, page 10

The Herald – 3


T his and
March is Women’s History Month, so I would like to pay tribute to some of the women who have played a role in our local and area history, as well as in my own history. We are made up of the people we have met through the years…good or bad. Now and then someone comes along who touches the lives of many, many people. Rita Turnwald was one of them. Rita was born in Columbus Grove but spent most of her life in or near Ottoville. Rita’s family lived on a farm near Columbus Grove until she was 14 years old. She was the oldest of 12 children born to Steve and Mary (Weber) Miller. Rita graduated from Ottoville High School in 1941. Following graduation, she did housework, as did many young girls at that time. She later worked at the cigar factory in Delphos. She married Leon Turnwald in 1944. They lived in the country, west of Ottoville, until moving to town in 1999. Leon was a deacon for the Immaculate Conception Church in Ottoville. They had six children, Dorothy Flores, Steve Turnwald, Jeanette Hazelton, Agnes Ellerbrock, Irene Helms and Nancy Suer. At the time of her death on 8 March 2011, she had 20 grandchildren; 42 great-grandchildren and 83 nieces and nephews. She was 87

the time of her husband’s illness, to devote her time to him. Leon passed away 19 May 2002. Gathering and writing helped Rita get through her grief. The book was sent to the publisher in 2005. She sold more than 700 hardbound copies. This manuscript covered everything. There were chapters on the Black Swamp, the Miami and Erie Canal, Coming to America, farming, schools, sports, businesses, church, prohibition, organizations, the park, military history, manufacturing, the life of a homemaker, etc. You name it, it’s in the book. Anyone who did not get the book, “History of Ottoville and Vicinity, 1845 – 2001”, can find a copy at the Delphos Public Library and the Putnam County Library in Ottawa. In Putnam County, the book is known as “Rita’s Book”. In 2006, Rita won an Outstanding Achievement Award for her book at the Ohio Historical Center in Columbus. The book is not Rita’s only accomplishment. She was a stay-at-home mom, who baked wedding cakes and made rosaries and was a 4-H Advisor for more than 25 years. Rita loved to read. She used to get books from the Putnam County bookmobile and when the branch library was established, she served as the librarian for five years. See WOMEN, page 10

and the first of her siblings to pass on. Her siblings were Ethel Burgei, Julie Kaskel, Lou Madigan, Irene Horner, Dolly Mesker, Donna Schlagbaum, Norb, Ralph, Donald “Doc”, Virgil and Art Miller. Rita was dedicated to God and her family — and then to Ottoville. She was a visionary. She envisioned the history of Ottoville passing by without being recorded, so she decided to do something about it. She helped write an early history of the Immaculate Conception Church in Ottoville but wanted to go further. Rita knew this would take time, not just months but years. She began saving newspaper clippings. Her daughter recalled that as a young girl, he mother had her cutting clippings from the newspapers. They were stashed away until it was time to write the book. This project required several trips to the library to search records and newspapers on the micro-film. She spent years putting this book together because she wanted it to be complete and “just right”. People would ask: “Is the book done yet?” They didn’t realize how much went into it. Although Rita enjoyed the work, it would still take years of research and writing. She put her writing on hold during

“Life is for the living, and death is for the dead. Let life be like music, and death a note unsaid.” — Langston Hughes, poet

Hail to the leftie
Today’s column is a tribute to southpaws or lefties. My brother is a leftie. (I’ve always thought he was odd but not because of that.) Representing only 10 percent of the general human population, left-handers have been viewed with suspicion and persecuted across history. The word “sinister” even derives from “left or left-hand.” Researchers at Northwestern University now report that a high degree of cooperation, not something odd or sinister, plays a key role in the rarity of left-handedness. Historically, the 90-10 right-handed to lefthanded ratio has remained the same for more than 5,000 years. Cooperation favors same-handedness — for sharing the same tools, for example. Physical competition, on the other hand, favors the unusual. In a fight, a left-hander would have the advantage in a right-handed world. Here are some of the advantages of being a lefty: • A great chance of having a high IQ. • Left-handed men make more money. • Seeing better under water. • Better able to multi-task. • Better memories.


On the Other hand
• Recover from stroke faster. • More successful at learning to drive. Here are some of the annoyances of being a lefty: • Spiral notebooks. • Only one gross lefty glove in gym class. • Only two pairs of the green lefty scissors in class, three lefty kids. • Ballpoint pens don’t work as well because you’re pushing, not pulling the ball. • Ink all over the side of your hand. • Bonking elbows with a righty at the dinner table. • Driver’s cup holder is for the right hand. • Number pad is on the right-hand side of keyboard. • Manual can openers.

Beware: Wind turbines still proposed for eastern Van Wert County!
DEAR EDITOR: Our committee opposing the proposed Dog Creek wind project has been attending several township meetings. At the meetings, Dan Litchfield, Iberdrola, has updated everyone on the progress of the proposed Dog Creek wind project. 1) Iberdrola has enough land/contracts signed to go forth with the Dog Creek project. 2) The project will have 50-60 wind turbines heading east of the existing Van Wert Blue Creek project, north of State Route 30 and stopping at Bockey Road. 3) Anyone that has signed or will sign a contract to put a wind turbine on their property cannot get out of the contract once it is signed. If you are opposed to this Dog Creek project, please voice your opinion now. Do not wait until 50-60 MORE turbines are in your back yard. Iberdrola claims they are a good business partner but in the next breath wants us to give them huge tax abatements (in lieu of paying taxes) for the project. What should have Van Wert County received instead of the $2,070,000 check? $9,120,000 is what Iberdrola should be paying each year. So instead of paying $60,000 per turbine, they paid $18,000. If Iberdrola is going to force us, in the Dog Creek area, to live by these turbines for the next 25 years, let’s make sure they pay the full tax amount. Please call Van Wert County Commissioners to let them know you oppose the Dog Creek wind project and any other tax abatement. Thad Lichtensteiger - 419-203-1835 Stan Owens - 419-203-2446 Todd Wolfrum - 419-238-4200 The Van Wert County Commissioners will have the final vote for the tax abatement on this project. The commissioners have told our committee that they will listen to all township trustees on this issue. Ultimately the commissioners will make the decision. Your opinion to the commissioners does matter. Please call today. To read the facts about wind, please go to saveourskylineohio.org. If you would like to be on this opposing committee, please email saveourskylinevwc@gmail.com.


Getting Ohio back to work
BY US SENATOR ROB PORTMAN about 15 percent of the longterm unemployed find a job in any given month. They also tend to have trouble staying employed; only 11 percent are able to find and keep a job for a full year. To begin to address this failed system, I fought to include these reforms that we’ve needed for a very long time in the final agreement on an unemployment extension. We want to ensure that the unemployed are getting more than just a check; we want them to receive the training they need to get a job and keep it. Our reforms require officials to connect the unemployed with training programs that will help them attain critical skills and credentials that are regionally relevant and nationally portable. See JOBS, page 10

WASHINGTON — The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin writing for The New Republic about Mrs. Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Mrs. Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having the wrong pencil skirt on Monday is just as big of a [mess-up] as someone speaking on the record when they didn’t mean to or a policy initiative that completely failed,” said the former aide. “It just made you super anxious.” Yes, high-pressure jobs are often like that. And the wrong skirt isn’t nothing when every scarf, sweater

Point of View
or sneaker is analyzed as though Vladimir Putin’s next move hinged on a hemline. Other criticism sliming the Internet has been leveled at Michelle’s China trip, which to some seemed like just another vacation for the first lady, her two daughters and her mother, Marian Robinson, who was described by a single disgruntled Chinese hotel staffer as “barking at the staff.” All other staff commented on how nice everyone was, but a British reporter managed to find one ticked-off person. Brilliant. As for vacations, Hawaii may be an enviable destination, but China? (Please don’t feel compelled to share your China vacation. I’m sure it was great.) Moreover,

goodwill exchanges are among our most effective instruments in diplomacy, soft or otherwise. What is more humanizing than a mother, her daughters and their grandmother? As for the conduct abroad, a snapshot doesn’t tell the story. Mrs. Obama’s no-press stipulation is problematic, to be sure, but I can confidently report that the Obamas are recognized for their superior attention to protocol. Witness Mrs. Obama when she met Pope Benedict XVI in 2009 and national security adviser Susan Rice during the president’s recent visit with Pope Francis. Both ladies wore black attire, including mantillas. This is proper dress for women at the Vatican and I’m told they were observed appreciatively. Aren’t proper conduct and decorum what we really want from our presidential spouse? Instead, the haters prefer to focus on a frame here and there in which Michelle Obama is either not wearing the happy-wife smile or dressed too casually for their taste. Those in the public eye for any period of time will fail to present their best

face in every instance — or they’ll have perfectionist minders micromanaging any potential downside. Or backside. When I traveled with then-first lady Laura Bush to the Middle East in 2007, members of the media were asked to turn their backs (and cameras) as Mrs. Bush climbed into a dug-out area in Petra, Jordan. At all times, we were told to position ourselves well ahead of the first lady. This was mostly for security but also ensured the most flattering camera angles. Who besides Kim Kardashian wants a photographer snapping one’s hind quarters as you climb a hill or hoist yourself into a camel saddle, as Mrs. Bush gamely did. Is this contrived and, therefore, dishonest? Who cares? Honesty is about capturing the subject as she is — a lady with dignity who holds one of the most important positions in the world. Wouldn’t we want our first lady seen at her best? Every first lady faces trials, and Hillary Clinton’s years in the White House were certainly no picnic. Even Laura Bush felt the sting now

and then. But the harsh barrage against Mrs. Obama, often in the most personal terms, is in a class of its own. To what do we owe this fresh venom? Some might say it’s all about race — and though surely true in some cases, this seems too facile an explanation. Perhaps with President Obama’s approval ratings in the low 40s, it is our animal nature to pile on the weakened leader. How better to hurt Obama than to attack his family? Perhaps there is a kernel of truth to the East Wing as the “worst wing,” as Cherlin called it. Alternatively, maybe some staffers weren’t up to the job and, lacking the maturity or self-awareness (not to mention loyalty), to accept their own responsibility, they turned to the dubious consolation of dishing dirt. The thing about dirt, however, is that it’s dirty. And the used-to-besomebody holding the shovel usually gets dirtiest of all. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@washpost.com.

Michigan holds on late to beat Tennessee 73-71
Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — Jordan Morgan scored 15 points and Nik Stauskas had 14, including a key free throw, to help Michigan hold on for a 73-71 victory over Tennessee in Friday’s first Midwest Regional semifinal. The second-seeded Wolverines now play either Louisville, who they lost to in last year’s national championship game, or 2012 national champion Kentucky Sunday. The Wolverines (28-8) led by 15 with 10:55 to go but committed four turnovers in the final 97 seconds. Tennessee (24-13) cut the lead to 72-71 and had a chance to take the lead but Jarnell Stokes was called for an offensive foul with 6 seconds left. Stauskas then made 1-of-2 free throws and Tennessee’s long desperation heave was off the mark. Jordan McRae scored 24 to lead the 11th-seeded Vols. For most of the first 36 minutes, Michigan was in firm control. Then came a stunning turnaround by Tennessee, a bubble team that had to win a first-round game just to get into the round of 64. When Stauskas, the Big Ten player of the year, knocked down a 3-pointer with 3:37 to go, the Wolverines led 70-60 and looked like they would cruise. Instead, Tennessee gave up just one more basket and steadily took advantage of Michigan’s miscues. When McRae completed a 3-point play with 1:56 left, the Vols trailed 72-67. Richardson’s layup made it 72-69 with 24.6 seconds left and when the Wolverines threw away the ball on the next possession, McRae’s layup cut Michigan’s lead to 72-71. Another turnover on an inbounds play gave Stokes the chance to put Tennessee ahead. But Stokes, who contended he did not commit the foul, was called for the charge and the Vols’ comeback was over. Michigan should be getting used to these sorts of finishes in Indianapolis. Two weeks ago when they were in Indy for the Big Ten tourney, the Wolverines had to hang on twice after seemingly having comfortable leads against Illinois and Ohio State. Eventually, they wound up losing to Michigan State in the title game. Their inability to put a team away nearly did them in Friday. It sure didn’t look like it would come down to the final shot when Michigan shot 61.5 percent from the field in the first half and led by as much as 13. Or even in the second half when they led by as much as 15. But Tennessee buckled down defensively and rallied to cut the lead to six with 6:41 to play before the closing rally.

UConn holds off Iowa St 81-76 in Sweet 16 at MSG NEW YORK — DeAndre Daniels scored 27 points, 19 in the second half and UConn held off Iowa State 81-76 on Friday to reach the East Regional final a year after the Huskies were barred from the NCAA tournament. Daniels hit his first six shots after halftime, the only Husky to make a field goal for over 8½ minutes. His 3-pointer gave seventh-seeded UConn a 49-32 lead.

Cougar track and field primed for 2014 By SEAN LaFONTAINE Times Bulletin Correspondent sports@timesbulletin.com VAN WERT — Expectations are high for the Van Wert boys and girls track teams this spring - despite losing one of the most decorated runners in school history. Gone from last year’s squad is 2013 800-meter run Division II State champion and 2014 1,600-meter runnerup Jared Fleming, who has taken his talents to Kent State University. Also gone is Kase Schalois, a multiple-time state qualifier who is now running at Ohio Northern. Despite the losses, Coach Mark Collins has a host of very talented runners returning this spring. “We have three boys who placed at state last year that will be returning,” said Collins. “Nick Krugh, Quincy Salcido and Connor Holliday. Krugh and Salcido were both on the 4x4 team that placed sixth at state last year and Holliday was on the 4x8 team that placed fourth in state.” “Terrance Branson is also back off of the state 4x2 team but is coming off a broken leg and isn’t expected to return until mid-April.” In the past two years, the Van Wert boys team finished first and second in the Western Buckeye League meets, respectively. “We want to be competitive and we think we have a chance to win if we are competitive,” continued Collins. “We are going to have to pick up some field event points and the last two years we have failed to score in the field events. So we are working hard on field events to try and change that.” Amanda Clay is a senior who is a 2-time State qualifier and qualified last year

in the 400 on the girls side. She has the school record in the 100, 200 and 400 meters as well as being on the relay teams who hold the record for the 4x400, 4x200 and 4x100. “She is probably the most dominant sprinter we have ever had at Van Wert; she gave up soccer to run cross country and build some strength. Over the winter she has put in a lot of off-season work and is very talented,” explained Collins. Alexis Dowdy went to state last year in the shot put as a sophomore and has been the conference champion the past two seasons. Whitney Meyers is a junior hurdler who was allconference last season. Alicia Davis is another returning sprinters who looks to be big contributors this season. “Andrea Foster is senior who is running real well right now,” added Collins. “Chloe Gamble was one of our main distance runner as a freshman and is coming back, along with Megan Barnhardt who is a very talented distance runner.” ———Knights look to make another step in track and field By NICK JOHNSON Times Bulletin Correspondent sports@delphosherald. com CONVOY - The Crestview Knights track team look to build on the success from last year and hopefully surpass it. This year, the Knights have a lot of underclassmen that are looking to take the next step this year and try to make it to regionals and possibly state. The Knights sent two runners to the state track meet as Isaiah Kline (16th in the 400 meters) and Mycah Grandstaff (9th in the 3,200 meters) both qualified. The boys team also welcomes back Malcolm Oliver, a regional level long-jumper.

minute, the UConn fans packing Madison Square Garden could celebrate. Dustin Hogue scored a career-high 34 points for third-seeded Iowa State (28-8) but Big 12 player of the year Melvin Ejim was 3-of-13 for seven points. UConn will face top-seeded Virginia or fourthseeded Michigan State on Sunday for a trip to the Final Four. The Cyclones, in the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 2000, were playing their second game without third-leading scorer Georges Niang, who broke his foot in their tournament opener. Iowa State’s Naz Long missed a 3-pointer with UConn clinging to a 70-65 lead and less than a minute left and 6-1 Shabazz Napier pulled down the rebound and was fouled by Hogue. The senior calmly drilled both free throws. Napier, the American Athletic Conference player of the year, drained four early 3-pointers, then made only one more field goal the rest of the way. But the quick start by Napier and backcourt mate Ryan Boatright opened up space for the 6-9 Daniels, an inconsistent junior who can score all over the court when he’s on. Since a stretch in late February and early March when he failed to reach double figures in four straight games, Daniels had averaged 15 in his last six outings before Friday. He shot 10-of-15 and pulled down 10 rebounds against Iowa State. After Napier’s difficult early 3-pointers — he was falling away on two of them and stepping back to open a sliver of space on a third — Boatright and Daniels took over. The three combined for all but six of the Huskies’ points as they built a 36-26 halftime lead. UConn is back in the NCAA tournament after academic sanctions kept the Huskies out last season. They were also ineligible for their last Big East tournament at the Garden as a member of the conference but looked right at home Friday. The last time UConn made it this far, the Huskies won a national title when Napier and Giffey were freshmen.

Preston Zaleski returns and along with his relay mates in Oliver and Kline they hope to take their 4x100 and 4x200 relays past district, at least. Scott Miller returns as one of the Knights’ best throwers from last year. The girls squad gets back Grace Callow, who took a year off but was an alternate for a relay that went to state a couple years back. She should be able to help Crestview in the short sprints. The Knights also return Jaime Mohr who will be doing the pole vault and short to long sprints; she just barely missed a shot to go to regionals. Bekka Tracy is a junior and has gotten a lot stronger in the shot put and discus. Crestview also has Courtney Trigg, who is looking to try the discus and has senior-level leadership and experience. The Knights on both sides have some underclassmen, mainly freshmen, that the coaching staff is expecting big things from this year. Caleb Bagley, Dylan Grandstaff and Alex Cunningham highlight the newcomers for the Knights. Grandstaff and Cunningham are trying track for the first time but good things are expected from both. The girls newbies include freshmen Tommi Anderson and Deanna Wells, both were really good at the middle-school level and have the potential to do great things this year but just need a little molding at the high-school level. The Knights are hoping they can make the adjustment quickly. “From year to year, regardless how many kids are on the team ,we want to use our schedule and use our duals and tri-meets to develop a routine when we get to the end of the year. Most of the meets we run are filled with schools that we know are tradition powerhouses every year,” Crestview coach James Lautzenheiser said. “We try to find those Midwest Athletic Conference schools as much as we can to give us some variety but also find schools that are running at a high level year in and year out. The goal for us is by the time we get to that first weekend in May, we want to have our full tournament roster almost set. We also want to have our personal battles for first and seconds spots set for each event. And after that, it is our kick for our second season. We tell our kids the closer you can get to beating Van Wert, the better we are going to have a well-rounded team. See PREVIEWS, 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 four fish per angler through April 30; 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; minimum size limit is 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: As of Tuesday, much of Lake Erie’s ice is becoming unsafe; most recent ice fishing reports have been from west of South Bass Island. Be cautious when ice fishing the offshore areas of Lake Erie, as ice conditions can change quickly due to water currents and wind; travel with caution and regularly check ice conditions before proceeding. Most targeting walleye are using jigging spoons tipped with emerald shiners. River Walleye Fishing Reports MAUMEE RIVER: Water conditions are moderately high and 38º F; very light pressure. Wading to Bluegrass Island is not possible at this time. Access to the river is improving but difficult in many locations due to ice slabs on shore. Access should improve over the weekend. However, no walleye are being caught at this time. Whites Landing and the Jerome Road area are accessible at this time. The downstream sites like Orleans Park and White’s Landing are the best places to fish during high water periods. SANDUSKY RIVER: Low water conditions currently and 38.5º F; very light pressure. Very few walleye are being caught at this time. Best locations are Roger Young Park or between State Street and Hays Avenue bridges. For both: Most commonly used bait is a Carolina rigged twister tail with a 18/24-inch leader with about 1/4- to 1/2-oz of weight depending on water flow. Walleye fishing will be slow until water temperatures climb into the 40s; weather forecast is for much warmer temperatures early next week, so expect a few walleye to start showing up during that period. The daily bag limit for walleye, saugeye and sauger is 4 fish through April 30; minimum size limit is 15 inches. ———— Officials discover Hemlock Pest in Lawrence, Monroe and Vinton counties COLUMBUS — The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the ODNR announced the discovery of a hemlock-killing pest in Lawrence, Monroe and Vinton counties in southeast Ohio. Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) is a small, aphid-like insect native to Asia that threatens the health and sustainability of eastern hemlock and Carolina hemlock in the eastern United States. HWA was first reported in the eastern United States in 1951 near Richmond, Va. By 2005, it was established in portions of 16 states from Maine to Georgia, where infestations covered about half of the range of hemlock. The infestations were recently detected by ODA and ODNR officials in Dean State Forest in Lawrence County, Zaleski State Forest in Vinton County and in a landscape setting in Monroe County. Officials have been conducting surveys in the newly-detected areas to determine the scope of the infestations. HWA is primarily transmitted by wind and birds. Officials believe the new findings in Ohio are the result of natural spread from nearby areas where the pest is established. There are now six counties in Ohio where HWA has been detected in a naturally occurring stand of hemlock. In 2012, infestations were found in Meigs and Washington counties; an infestation was detected in Hocking County in 2013. At this time, ODA will move to expand its hemlock quarantine, enforced by ODA’s Plant Health division, to include Lawrence, Monroe and Vinton counties. Ohio quarantine regulations restrict the movement of hemlock materials from counties known to be infested into non-infested Ohio counties. Ohio’s quarantine law also requires hemlock materials grown in non-infested counties in quarantined states to be inspected before being shipped and have a phytosanitary certificate verifying that the plant material is free of HWA when entering Ohio. For more information about the HWA and

Forestry practices that improve the health and productivity of the woodlands include grapevine and invasive species control, thinning to release crop trees, selective tree harvesting and tree planting in open fields. With the addition of their own band sawmill, they can not only produce regular lumber but also sell their character wood as a specialty market, making use of low-grade or cull trees that would normally go to waste. The Coldwells actively manage and encourage a diverse wildlife population. The Coldwell Family Tree Farm is certified by the American Tree Farm System (ATFS) as meeting ATFS standards for woodland stewardship. This designation shows that significant effort has been made to provide a renewable resource in a sustainable manner while maintaining a healthy forest that protects water, wildlife and recreational values. A public field day is planned for Sept. 20 at the farm to highlight their conservation practices with demonstrations and forestry and wildlife experts will attend. The Ohio Tree Farm Program was organized in 1946, bringing foresters and landowners together to apply the ATFS standards of sustainable forest management. The system includes 1,700 woodland owners across Ohio that are committed to caring for their land under a comprehensive plan developed by a professional forester. Landowners interested in the American Tree Farm System may visit ohiotreefarm.org. The ODNR Division of Forestry works to promote the wise use and sustainable management of Ohio’s public and private woodlands. To learn more about Ohio’s woodlands, forest health and tree care, visit forestry.ohiodnr.gov. ———Ohioans urged to be safe when burning: Ohioans are reminded to be aware of the state’s outdoor burning regulations and take necessary precautions if they are planning to burn debris this spring, according to the ODNR. Ohio law states outdoor debris burning is prohibited from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. through May. Burning is limited in the spring due to the abundance of dry fuel on the ground before small, grassy fuels green up with moisture. Winds can make a seemingly safe fire burn more intensely and escape control. “After the long winter, many residents will be spring cleaning and burning their unwanted home and yard debris,” said Robert Boyles, chief of the ODNR Division of Forestry. “It’s critical that people take the appropriate precautions to contain these fires in order to protect their lives and property as well as the lives and property of their neighbors.” If a fire escapes control, people should immediately contact the local fire department. An escaped wildfire, even one burning in grass or weeds, is dangerous. Violators of Ohio’s burning regulations are subject to citations and fines. Residents should also check the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency’s regulations and consult with local fire officials about burning conditions. The Division of Forestry offers these safety tips for burning debris outdoors: - Consider using a 55-gallon drum with a weighted screen lid to provide an enclosed incinerator. - Know current and future weather conditions, have tools on hand and never leave a debris burn unattended. - Be informed about state and local burning regulations. - Consult the local fire department for addi-

tional information and safety considerations. - Visit ohiodnr.gov/forestry and firewise.org for more information and tips on protecting a home and community. - Remember: “Don’t burn during the day in March, April and May.” ——— Horsepower limit remains the same at Cowan Lake: The 10-HPr limit at Cowan Lake will remain the same in 2014, according to the ODNR. “Public meetings were held this past winter and the public feedback was evenly split on either side of the horsepower issue,” said Gary Obermiller, chief of the ODNR Division of Watercraft. “We are going to take more time to study this possible change at Cowan Lake.” Public input was sought after the department received requests to increase the horsepower that would allow boats to operate at idle speed. ODNR is contacting all permit holders who have planned activities that may have relied on the expectation of a change in horsepower. For boaters looking for lakes that offer increased horsepower opportunities, consider visiting the following state parks and wildlife areas: Knox Lake, Lake La Su An, Oxbow, Rupert and Burr Oak. More information on these and all boating opportunities is available at ohiodnr.gov. ——— Mmmmm… Mushrooms!: Ohio has more than 2,000 kinds of wild mushrooms, some of which are poisonous and some of which are edible, which emerge during April and May. Wild mushrooms typically grow under the cover of leaves, dead wood and other forest debris, quickly emerging after a moderate or heavy rain. Abandoned orchards and areas with ash or elm trees are often the most productive areas for mushroom seekers. The most common edible mushroom sought in Ohio is the morel or sponge mushroom. The true morel is easily recognized. However, there are some poisonous mushrooms, the false morels, that can be confused with the true morels. True morels have caps with definite pits and ridges, like a honeycomb. False morels may have lobes, folds, flaps or wrinkles. The true morel is built like a light bulb and the stem is hollow when viewed in a cross section. Tips for Collecting Wild Mushrooms: Go with an experienced mushroom hunter on your first outing. Make sure you correctly identify the type of mushroom before you eat it; do not eat raw mushrooms. Eat only mushrooms in good condition and do not eat large amounts of mushrooms (sample a small amount the first time). Before you go mushroom hunting, get a good field guide detailing the various types Mushroom hunting is permitted at all state forests in Ohio, encompassing more than 200,000 acres. Many state parks also allow mushroom hunting. However, individuals interested in hunting should look for a notice posted at the area headquarters indicating that the collecting of mushrooms is permitted or contact park officials for specific rules and restrictions that may apply to individual parks as off-trail hiking without a special permit is prohibited at certain state parks. Mushrooms can only be picked for personal use… no commercial harvesters are permitted. Upcoming Events: Morel Mushroom Mania at Shawnee State Park - April 11-12. Learn how to find and cook these mysterious mushrooms. Join in on a hunting contest. Regular camping fees apply. For more information, call (740) 858-6652 or see the event flier. Wildflowers and Waterfalls Hike at Hocking Hills State Park - 10 a.m. April 19. Observe nature’s carpet of wildflowers and sparkling waterfalls in beautiful Hocking Hills. While this hike isn’t specific to mushrooms, the naturalist will talk about those that the group sees. Meet at the parking lot at Ash Cave. Morel Mushrooms at Cowan Lake State Park - 10 a.m. April 27. Learn to identify morels and false morels - a very important distinction. Get tips on locating morels along with mushroom hunting etiquette. Join the park naturalist on a guided hike or spend time searching on your own. At 11:30, meet back for show and tell and a lesson on delicious recipes and cooking techniques. Meet at 10 a.m. at the Recreation Center in the Cowan Lake Campground (the first building in the campground). Bring a hiking stick and an onion bag - essential for redistributing mushroom spores in the woods.

“It is going to be a struggle for our girls team because we don’t have the numbers we need but we are going to take our licks. But hopefully we will be able to take some key events coming down the stretch and in the tournament. I think we can get a girls relay to regionals even though we are running with maybe 14-16 girls. “For the guys, with the numbers and strength we have,


we can push for top three in the conference and try to beat Van Wert at home. We need to push for top five at the District level. I feel that if we can get our guys to be top four there, then I feel we have a good shot to get some guys and some relay to Columbus to the state meet.” The Crestview girls tracksters are set to open the season today at the Versailles Lady Tiger Classique, while the boys (and girls) host a tri-meet on Thursday, April 3.

(Continued from page 6) Buzard, a prospective psychology major at Ashland, was a successful running back in the Wildcats’ shotgun 4-wide spread offense last fall, a plus as he prepares to play in the same kind of scheme for the Division II Eagles. “That was another plus: they ran the same stuff we ran this fall, so the adjustment won’t be nearly as much as if they ran something else. However, even if they had run something different, I’d have chose them, I like it so much,” Buzard added. “I go about 190 pounds; they haven’t put a number for me to report at.

Q: Between 1959 and 1963, I served aboard four U.S. naval ships. Could you please tell me their fates? They are the USS Shangri-La, USS O’Bannon, USS Jenkins and USS Sproston. -- R.A., Bartonville, Ill. A: Unfortunately, none of your ships are around anymore. I say that with complete empathy, since the two ships I served on are gone as well. It was very painful when I learned they met the salvage yard fate. The aircraft carrier USS Shangri-La was decommissioned on July 30, 1971, and berthed at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard as part of the Atlantic Reserve Fleet. On July 15, 1982, it was removed from the Naval Vessel Register, but remained as a spare parts vessel for the USS Lexington. On Aug. 9, 1988, the Shangri-La was sold for scrap and towed to Taiwan to be demolished. The USS O’Bannon was decommissioned and stricken from the Navy List on Jan. 30, 1970, in a ceremony at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. It was sold for scrap on June 6, 1970. The USS Jenkins was decommissioned in February 1969; removed from the Navy List on July 2, 1969; and sold for scrap on Feb. 17, 1971. USS Sproston was decommissioned on Sept. 30, 1968; stricken Oct. 1, 1968; and sold for scrap on Dec. 15, 1971.

Australians say objects need to be checked
Associated Press ROB GRIFFITH PERTH, Australia — Objects spotted floating in a new search area for debris from the missing Malaysian jetliner need to be recovered and inspected before they can be linked to the plane, Australian officials said Saturday. Eight planes were ready to comb the newly targeted area off the west coast of Australia after several objects were spotted Friday, including two rectangular items that were blue and gray, and ships on the scene will attempt to recover them, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said. “The objects cannot be verified or discounted as being from MH370 until they are relocated and recovered by ships,” the authority said in a statement. “It is not known how much flotsam, such as from fishing activities, is ordinarily there. At least one distinctive fishing object has been identified.” It said the weather was expected to be good for at least the first part of the day, but could deteriorate later Saturday. Newly analyzed satellite data shifted the search zone on Friday, raising hopes searchers may be closer to getting physical evidence that Flight 370 crashed in the Indian Ocean on March 8 with 239 people aboard. The newly targeted zone is nearly 1,130 kilometers (700 miles) northeast of sites the searchers have crisscrossed for the past week. The redeployment came after analysts determined that the jet may have been traveling faster than earlier estimates and would therefore have run out of fuel sooner, officials said.

Study: Married folks have fewer heart problems
Associated Press Love can sometimes break a heart but marriage seems to do it a lot of good. A study of more than 3.5 million Americans finds that married people are less likely than singles, divorced or widowed folks to suffer any type of heart or blood vessel problem. This was true at any age, for women as well as for men, and regardless of other heart disease risk factors they had such as high cholesterol or diabetes, researchers found. “It might be that if someone is married, they have a spouse who encourages them to take better care of themselves,” said Dr. Jeffrey Berger, a preventive cardiologist at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York. But “we can’t prove by any means cause and effect,” he said. This is the largest look at marriage and heart health, said Dr. Carlos Alviar, a cardiology fellow who led the study with Berger. Previous studies mostly compared married to single people and lacked information on divorced and widowed ones. Or they just looked at heart attacks, whereas this one included a full range from clogged arteries and abdominal aneurysms to stroke risks and circulation problems in the legs. Researchers used health questionnaires that people filled out when they sought various types of tests in community settings around the country from an Ohio company, Life Line Screening Inc. Some of these


screening tests, for various types of cancer and other diseases or conditions, are not recommended by leading medical groups, but people can still get them and pay for them themselves. The study authors have no financial ties to the company and are not endorsing this type of screening, Berger said. Life Line gave its data to the Society of Vascular Surgery and New York University to help promote research. The results are from people who sought screening from 2003 through 2008. Their average age was 64, nearly two-thirds were female and 80 percent were white. They gave information on smoking, diabetes, family history, obesity, exercise and other factors, and researchers had blood pressure and other health measures. The study found: —Married people had a 5 percent lower risk of any cardiovascular disease compared to single people. Widowed people had a 3 percent greater risk of it and divorced people, a 5 percent greater risk, compared to married folks. —Marriage seemed to do the most good for those under age 50; they had a 12 percent lower risk of heart-related disease than single people their age. —Smoking, a major heart risk, was highest among divorced people and lowest in widowed ones. Obesity was most common in those single and divorced. Widowed people had the highest rates of high blood pressure, diabetes and inadequate exercise.

in production sometime in the fourth quarter. “At this time, there are no production forecasts,” Adamski said. Ford’s investment in Lima follows an announcement in early March that the company will shift its production of Ford F-650 and F-750 medium duty trucks from Mexico to the Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake early next year. The Lima Engine Plant was built in 1957, currently employs 975 people and is one of the largest employers in Allen County.

Putin, Obama discuss solution to Ukraine crisis
VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV Associated Press MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin called President Barack Obama on Friday to discuss a diplomatic solution to the Ukrainian crisis, while Ukraine’s fugitive leader urged a nationwide referendum that would serve Moscow’s purpose of turning its neighbor into a loosely knit federation. The statement from Viktor Yanukovych, the former Ukrainian president who fled to Russia last month after three months of protests, raised the threat of more unrest in Ukraine’s Russianspeaking eastern provinces, where many resent the new Ukrainian government. Also Friday, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told Putin the Ukrainian military withdrawal from Crimea was complete. Ukrainian soldiers were seen carrying duffel bags and flags as they shipped out of the Black Sea peninsula that Russia has annexed. While Yanukovych has practically no leverage in Ukraine, his statement clearly reflected the Kremlin’s focus on supporting separatist sentiments in eastern Ukraine. The White House said that Putin called Obama Friday to discuss a U.S. proposal for a diplomatic resolution to the crisis in Ukraine, which U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry presented to Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov earlier this week. Obama suggested that Russia put a concrete response in writing and the presidents agreed that Kerry and Lavrov would meet to discuss the next steps.


National Ford Department‘s Vice President of the United Auto Workers (UAW) Jimmy Settles said the new jobs at Lima Engine Plant will be a major boost to the community. “If we look in the rear-view mirror, we’ve seen some dark times,” Settles said. “The F-150 epitomizes the American worker.” Ford spokeswoman Kristina Adamski said the new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engines will be

Homier attends Wayne Trace High School. For her Gold Award project, she focused on the hunger crisis occurring in her community. Identifying a need for access to fresh produce, she approached the Dupont Church of the Brethren for space to plant a garden and planned out the use of the space. She then solicited help from fellow friends and community members for materials and labor. Coordinating volunteers from five different communities, Homier oversaw the planting, harvesting and weeding of the garden plot throughout the summer. All crops that were harvested were donated to multiple food banks in Putnam, Paulding and Defiance counties. She also created a pamphlet about growing fresh produce; it was distributed with vegetable seed packets at food banks to educate and encourage others to grow fresh produce. Homier presented her finished project to the church’s congregation to encourage them to continue the garden


in the summer of 2014. Elaina Maag is a 2013 graduate of Fort Jennings School who attends Bowling Green State University, majoring in nursing. Maag chose to focus her project on the issue of young babysitters and their lack of emergency preparedness in her community. After researching correct procedures for emergency preparedness and basic first aid, she put together a babysitting preparedness class for young girls and advertised it in the community. A knowledgeable guest speaker delivered the content. She conducted a post-class survey of participants to ascertain if the girls found the class useful; the response was very positive. She recruited volunteers to film the class and then produced a short video. Maag presented the video to Fort Jennings High School students, which sparked small group discussions. The video will continue to be a resource tool for schools and community groups. Elaina intends to approach the town council to find future presenters

to ensure sustainability of her project. Kristen Maag is a 2013 graduate of Fort Jennings High School who attends The Ohio State University, majoring in psychology. She chose to address the community need for training in CPR and first aid. She learned through interviewing community members that classes on these topics were viewed as costly and not offered locally. She set out to create a course that would not be cost prohibitive and would be accessible in her small community. Partnering with the American Heart Association, who provided a staff member to serve as the instructor, she set up a local class for a minimal price and 10 people were certified. She recruited volunteers to film the class and then produced a short video. Maag presented the video to students at Fort Jennings High School. Students approached the school and the American Heart Association about forming a partnership to certify graduating seniors, which ensured that her project continues after her graduation.

Lee noted that he really had no idea of how much money could be available in the next state budget. The Ohio Legislature is preparing for the Mid-Term Budget Review in May, according to Lee, Hite talked about trying to include a line item for the OLHA either during the current review or in legislation this fall. “We see this as a major step forward in both economic development of the Lincoln Highway and also the travel and tourism end of it,” declared Lee. “We know we get a lot of people through here traveling the Lincoln Highway. We got a lot especially last year for the centennial. Every year we get people stopping and asking about the highway and where to go and what to see. Up until now, it’s been whatever counties and local organizations have been able to do as far as highlighting the highway. This would be a major step forward if we could get into the Ohio budget and have money earmarked for marking and marketing the highway again.” The nation’s first transcontinental highway turned 100 last year and its history was celebrated from Times Square in New York to San Francisco’s Lincoln Park. Local efforts to remember the route and its importance to the country have been strong but statewide, Lee believes more attention is warranted. He said, “The highway is something that Ohio has and the states all around us have made a big priority of the Lincoln Highway, but Ohio hasn’t. It’s time we step up and do that.”

After her youngest started kindergarten, she became a library aide for the Ottoville Schools. When her husband did his training to become a deacon in the church, she went along to get the education. She graduated in ministry and became a certified religious education teacher, serving as religious education co-coordinator for the Ottoville parish for seven years. Rita also helped with the Ottoville Sesquicentennial and pageant, served as president of the Putnam County Historical Society for 11 years and also held each of the other offices for the organization. The Ottoville Church Museum is a result of Rita’s dreaming and working. She credits many others for their help in setting up the museum, which is second to none in the diocese. Millie Ruen inherited the position as curator after Rita’s death.


Rita was also one of the authors of “Reflections”, a pictorial history of Delphos, Landeck, Fort Jennings and Ottoville. More recently, she helped with the “Putnam County, Ohio History and Families”. These two books are still available for purchase. Rita was also chosen as the 1984 Woman of the Year by the Delphos Herald and was also featured as a “Good Gal” in the Delphos Herald. Also, who said “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”? Rita got her first computer at age 83 and I got mine at age 82. Rita’s list of accomplishments could go on and on but we might run out of paper. I consider it a pleasure and a privilege to have had Rita as a friend and fellow historian. Although March is labeled Women’s History Month and the month of March is over, I plan to feature more Women of History in This and That on April 12.

These steps, however, are only the beginning. We also need to provide fundamental and comprehensive reform of the 47 different, often overlapping, federal workforce development programs — costing over $15 billion in taxpayer dollars a year — that aren’t accomplishing their mission of connecting the unemployed with jobs. In an effort to address the deficiencies in these programs and ensure that taxpayer dollars are not being wasted on retraining that doesn’t work, Senator Michael Bennet and I introduced the bipartisan CAREER Act. Our legislation not only makes jobretraining programs more effective and efficient but also incentivizes success. We give states the flexibility to use a portion of their retraining funds on programs that are accountable and performance-based, rewarding job-training providers that produce measurable results in job placement and retention.

We desperately need that kind of reform right now to begin to close what is called the skills gap. At the same time we are experiencing these high levels of long-term unemployment, there are 3.9 million available jobs around the country — 100,000 unfilled jobs in Ohio alone. These are not just part-time or minimum wage positions. According to a recent study, Ohio is third behind only California and Texas in skilled factory job openings—full-time jobs with benefits that often turn into long-term careers. The Manufacturing Institute recently concluded that 74 percent of manufacturers are experiencing workforce shortages or skill deficiencies that keep them from expanding their operations. And yet according to a recent report from the Government Accountability Office, the number of training participants who are earning in-demand skills and credentials through the federal government’s primary job training programs has dropped by as much as 15 percent in

the past five years. The reforms included in the unemployment extension and in the CAREER Act will help turn that decline around and mobilize some of the extraordinary resources available in Ohio that provide quality training. Last week, I had the opportunity to visit retraining programs at Stark State College in Stark County and the Robotics and Advanced Manufacturing Technology Education Collaborative (RAMTEC) and Tri-Rivers Career Center in Marion County. These facilities are working directly with industry to provide cutting-edge skills and credentials that are relevant to jobs available in Ohio and necessary to compete in a global economy. We don’t have to accept the kind of chronic long-term unemployment we have seen over the last few years. We can do better. We know that Ohio workers aren’t looking for a handout; they are looking for a job. By adding skills training that works, we can help get them find one.

Former St. John’s Player To Play Against St. John’s Don Imber, former member of St. John’s High basketball team, is playing with the Lima Business College which opened its season with a game against Beaverdam High, at Beaverdam Friday night. The girls team of the college played in a preliminary and lost to the Beaverdam girls 32 to 21. The Business College boys won however with a score of 23 to 15. Imber played at left forward for the winning team. The Business College team is scheduled to play in Delphos next Friday night against the St. John’s varsity. This game is substituted for the game which had been arranged with Ottoville, the latter team having cancelled. Delphos Herald, Nov. 1928 ————— Given Good Promotion With Goodrich Company Word has just been received by John Judkins from his son, Marian, stating that the latter has been given a substantial promotion with the B.F. Goodrich Rubber Company. Mr. Judkins has been associated with the Goodrich Company as traveling auditor

Answers to Friday’s questions: The official U.S. flag had as many as 15 stripes (adopted in 1795 after Vermont and Kentucky joined the original 13 colonies as states). In 1818, after five more states joined the Union, Congress permanently set the number of stripes on the flag at 13 and ruled that every year on July 4, an additional star would be added to the flag for each state admitted to the Union since the last July 4. Tom Selleck, Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg portrayed the surrogate fathers in the 1987 film comedy Three Men and a Baby. Today’s questions: In the comic book world of Fantastic Four superheroes, who was the sister of Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch? In what country is the president’s office and official residence known as the Blue House? Answers in Monday’s Herald.
