Organ demand far surpasses supply
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor nspencer@delphosherald.com Hines said the group was targeted for a specific reason. “They are getting ready to get those driver’s licenses and we are encouraging them to be an organ donor and have that sticker placed on there,” Hines said. April is also Organ Donor Awareness month. Students learned what organs and tissue can be donated and under what circumstances. Transplantable organs include: heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, pancreas and small intestines. Tissues that can be donated are: bone, cartilage, heart valves, veins, skin, fascia, soft tissue and corneas. One donor can save up to eight lives and enhance the lives of up to 50 people. For organ donation, the person is declared brain dead but their heart is still be beating, circulating blood and vital oxygen to organs. The donor cannot have a current or recent uncured cancer or an overwhelming infection or be HIV positive. Gender and race do not come in to play but for the lungs, liver and heart, the size of the donor needs to be comparative to the recipient. As transplantation of hearts, kidneys, lungs, pancreas and livers has emerged as the preferred and most successful treatment of many life-threatening diseases, the need for these life-saving gifts has increased. To bring the message a little closer to home, 28-year-old Payne told her story. See ORGAN, page 10

Kalida woman has first U.S. FDA-approved bionic eye
BY NANCY KLINE DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com KALIDA — Linda Schulte said she cried when she found out there may be a way that she could “see” once again. The 65-year-old Kalida woman was diagnosed with retinas pigmentosa when she was in her forties. Retinis pigmentosa is an inherited retina degenerative disease that causes slow but progressive vision loss due to a gradual loss of those light-sensitive cells. Patients with RP experience loss of side and night vision and later central vision, which can result in near blindness. Schulte said she initially head about the process as a member of the Foundation Fighting Blindness. Then in February 2013, she heard a news item that the process known as Argus ® II Retina Prosthesis System, developed by Second Sight Medical Products, Inc., of Sylmar, Calif., had received FDA approval. Once she heard this, Schulte was anxious to see if she qualified for the implant. Contacting the California company, she learned 10 sites in the United States had

SPENCERVILLE — FFA students were highlighted during the Spencerville Board of Education meeting Thursday. Twelve students were in attendance to receive the award presented to them with a certificate of recognition for their hard work. “We are trying to bring awareness to what they are doing,” stated board president Penny Kill. One of the accomplishments that FFA students did this school year was to participate in a “cardboard city,” when the students slept outside in cardboard boxes, to raise awareness for the homeless. The group also collected supplies for the homeless, had bake sale that raised $197, a canned-food drive brought in 1,600 pounds of non-perishable food for a local food pantry. They also raised $5,062 for the James Cancer Center. Breakfast and lunch prices for the next school year were approved. Based on information supplied by the food service supervisor, prices for grades K-4 are $2.35, grades 5-12 $2.70 and the Bearcat meal for adults would be $2.75. The breakfast prices are $1.25 for grades K-4 and $1.35 for grades 5-12. Individual cartons of milk will be sold for 40 cents each. Recess milk can be purchased for $30 per semester. A la carte lunch prices will be based on food production costs supplied by the food service supervisor. In other action, the board approved: • 61 seniors for graduation; See FFA, page 10

been approved to do the implant. “They recommended the Cleveland Clinic since I live in Ohio,” Schulte said. “But when I contacted them, I waited and waited and never heard back.” Schulte then contacted the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center in Ann Arbor, another approved site. “They called right back and were excited,” she said. Once the process began, Schulte discovered she had to have patience to endure the many steps and setbacks on her road to receive her “bionic eye.” She had her first appointment in Michigan on Sept. 23, 2012. Her initial exam revealed she had cataracts: “They decided to have the cataract taken out of the right eye since they thought this was the better eye.” Schulte had the cataract removed in Lima and then returned to Michigan for an exam, when it was discovered there was a mole on the back of the eye, making it not good for the implant. “I was depressed at that point,” Schulte admitted.

$18M released to expand access to credit for small businesses, manufacturers
Information submitted WASHINGTON, D.C. — Thursday, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), chair of the Senate Banking Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Protection, announced the availability of more than $18 million in new federal funding to help Ohio small business and manufacturers grow operations and create jobs by increasing access to available credit. The funding will be made available through the U.S. Treasury Department’s State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI), a program Brown worked to include as part of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010. “Small businesses and manufacturers are the backbone of Ohio’s economy,” Brown said. “But in order for these companies to grow operations and create new jobs, they must have access to capital. These new federal resources will provide an immediate boost to Ohio small businesses and help leverage additional private investments – many from local community banks –to help add jobs throughout Ohio.” While serving as chairman of the Economic Policy subcommittee of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, Brown held a series of hearings on increasing credit for small businesses and manufacturers. Brown was also a strong supporter of the Small Business Jobs Act, aimed at helping small business owners access more private capital to finance an expansion and hire new workers. Because many Ohio small businesses are in the manufacturing industry, they require higher loan limits due to higher capital costs in the industry. Endorsed by the Chamber of Commerce and National Federal of Independent Businesses (NFIB), the Small Business Jobs Act created a $30 billion loan fund—at no cost to taxpayers—to

enable community banks to make loans to small businesses seeking to expand operations or hire new workers. Click here for a summary of the bill’s provisions. In August 2011, Brown announced more than $55 million in federal funding through the SSBCI program. The SSBCI provides funds for the next 10 years in grants for states to support small business lending programs. Under the SSBCI, participating states will use the federal funds for programs that leverage private lending to help finance small businesses and manufacturers that are creditworthy, but are not getting the loans they need to expand and create jobs. The SSBCI will allow states to build on successful models for state small business programs, including collateral support programs, Capital Access Programs (CAPs) and loan guarantee programs.

Hubert W. Horstman
March 18, 1921April 15, 2014 You can bet there is a lot of handshaking going on up in Heaven right now. Hubert Wi l l i a m Horstman, 93, beloved son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and friend to all, passed away peacefully on Tuesday. Born March 18, 1921, to Henry and Anna (Becker) Horstman of Cloverdale, who preceded him in death, he grew up on the Putnam County family farm and lived there his entire life. He wed his dear “Twinnie” Agnes (Jostpille) on June 9, 1953, and she survives. Also surviving are his five children, Kay (Joe Unverferth) of Kalida, Dan (Una Nulty) of Delphos, Pat (Randy Etter) of Columbus, Susan (Kevin Wildenhaus) of Plymouth, Mich., and Lisa (David Whittle) of Knoxville, Tenn.; 12 grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his sister, Leona Landin of Fort Jennings in 2011. When Hubert was 14, he took on the responsibility of running the family farm after his father was seriously injured in a farming accident during the depths of The Great Depression. He continued to farm for many years while also working at Philips Display Components in Ottawa. We had a very long goodbye with Dad after he was diagnosed with dementia in 2003 but he never lost his sense of humor nor the mischievous glint in his eye. We miss him terribly but we know he is home at last after his long struggle and has earned a well-deserved rest. “Lo, blessed are our ears for they have heard; Yea, blessed are our eyes for they have seen: Let thunder break on man and beast and bird, And the lightning.

Burial will follow in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. Sunday at LoveHeitmeyer Funeral Home, Jackson Township, Fort Jennings. Memorial contributions may be made to Putnam County Homecare & Hospice and The Alzheimer’s Association.

The Promise of Easter


It is no coincidence that the celebration of Easter takes place each year in early spring, commemorating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. For Easter is a celebration of rebirth, and what better time to celebrate this than when the earth is springing back into life. The new life of spring reminds us that this world is eternally productive and creative. The apparent lifelessness of winter is only an illusion. Sleeping just beneath the surface, is life and more life, awaiting God’s gentle touch to reawaken it. In the same way, Easter reminds us that the death of our bodies is an illusion. Beneath it is life and more life. The Bible tells us that God so loved the world that He gave us His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. We will one day shed our bodies, as the trees shed their leaves and snakes shed their skins, and we will be reborn into life everlasting. “And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.” John 10:28

Paws to Consider

identify their pleasure points. Will it be a full body pet from the top of the head to the tip of a curling tail as the cat walks away from me with inquisitive arrogance or will it be a really good chin scratch as the cat hunkers down in the safety of the bottom of its travel crate? Regardless of the cat’s acceptance (or lack thereof) of my intrigue and admiration, my brain has switched gears from the last species I treated to the feline in front of me. Now I get to think about all the unique health issues that cats might experience. With every species, veterinarians are first trained to recognize the “normal” animal before learning about specific animal diseases. While there is some crossover between different species when it comes to disease, there are also a number of conditions unique to each species, including felines. Dirty Face Syndrome, Stud Tail and Painful Bladder Syndrome are a few conditions distinctive to cats. Dirty Face Syndrome (Idiopathic Facial Dermatosis) appears just as the name implies. Kittens or cats, often of Persian or Himalayan breeding, will present with what appears as dirt accumulated in the coat around the lips, nose, and eyes. This “dirtiness” is difficult to clean off and will recur very quickly if you are successful in doing so. The term “idiopathic” implies that there is no known cause but since this condition occurs frequently in certain breeds, there is likely a genetic association. The “dirt” is excessive sebum or wax produced by oil glands on the face. Feline Stud Tail is similar to Dirty Face Syndrome in that it is also associated with overactive oil glands, this time located on the tail base, usually of intact male cats. The excessive, brown oil that accumulates collects dirt which gives the tail base a greasy, black appearance that is again difficult to wash out. Neutering does seem to help eliminate or control this condition which may also be observed in neutered male or female cats. Feline Painful Bladder Syndrome (Feline Idiopathic Cystitis or FIC) is a hemorrhagic inflammation of the lining of a cat’s urinary bladder and urethra. A similar condition is found in humans, primarily women, and is called Interstitial Cystitis. Cats as well as people will experience lower urinary pain, frequency, urgency and bleeding. There is no known cause for this uncomfortable ailment that appears to be exacerbated by stress. Cats also differentiate themselves in the behavioral category with two different body languages that alert veterinarians to be on guard. The first is what I describe as “airplane ears.” Cats will lay their ears down flat on the sides of their heads, usually with their body somewhat crouched. At the same time, the cat may begin a swishing tail motion, more pronounced at the tip of the tail. This action is a “ticktock” motion that communicates the cat’s escalating discontent. When both airplane ears and the tick-tock tail are present, beware, as the next action will likely be a lashing out by an unhappy cat! Not all cats are uneasy in the veterinary office. In fact, I would argue that almost every cat can be comforted during visits by all the right touches of a discerning veterinary eye. So, please do not hesitate to take your feline family member for routine veterinary exams. Your veterinarian is a trained connoisseur of cat behavior and diseases and it our honor and privilege to care for them. Bonnie Jones, DVM, operates a mixed animal practice in Delphos with her husband, Dr. John H. Jones. Questions about pet care can be sent to: Dr. Jones, c/o The Delphos Herald, 405 N. Main St., Delhpos, OH 45833 or E-mailed to nspencer@delphosherald.com.

The veterinary perspective of a cat connoisseur
BY DR. BONNIE JONES, DVM One of the greatest pleasures of veterinary medicine is being able to care for a variety of animals daily. Unlike our human counterparts, we are trained to diagnose, prescribe and treat multiple species, with cats and dogs being the most common. As such, we must learn about conditions and behaviors unique to the different animals that we see. Personally, I find the feline species very intriguing as not only are they very different from dogs but also each cat is different from the next. And, unlike dogs that we can train and “mold” into canine good citizens, cats are independent creatures that “have staff.” For veterinarians, even meeting and greeting cats requires a certain finesse to win the trust of these independent, highly intelligent animals. While most dogs will greet veterinarians with at least some exuberance and learn to trust their caregivers, cats assume the attitude of “what’s in this for me.” With this knowledge, my first task when approaching feline patients is to

Kalida batters Musketeers in PCL baseball
By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com KALIDA — It was a wild baseball game on a brilliant but windy Thursday afternoon/evening between Putnam County League combatants Fort Jennings and Kalida at historic Holy Name Ballpark in Kalida. The Musketeers took the early lead, only to see the host Wildcats reply with a 7-run first inning. They made it stand up for a 15-6 victory. Connor Wallenhorst led off the top of the first with a double to left against Kalida starter and winner Colton Farrell (4 1/3 innings, 3 hits, 4 earned runs, 2 bases-on-balls, 3 strikeouts), Dylan Van Loo sacrificed him to third and he scored when Mark Metzger doubled to left. However, on appeal, Metzger was called out for failing to touch first. Ryan Rau lined out to keep it 1-0. Kalida retaliated immediately against Jennings right-hander Jared Hoersten (1/3 IP, 7 hits, 7 runs, 6 earned). Noah Lambert (3-for-5, 2 runs batted in) started it with a single, followed by a wind-blown bloop to right by Austin Swift (3-for-4, 2 runs) that put runners on the corners. Swift stole second and a Brandon Hovest (2-for-3, 4 RBIs) slash to center scored both runners that gave Kalida the lead for good at 2-1. Farrell (2 runs) singled to left. An out later, Jeffrey Knueve (3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs) singled to center to load the bases. Trevor Maag blooped one to the outfield grass between second base and right field to score Hovest for a 3-1 lead. Brady Laudick (2-for-2, 3 RBIs, 3 runs) had a bases-clearing triple to the right-field corner for a 6-1 edge and ended J. Hoersten’s stint on the hill, bringing in the lefty Van Loo (5 IPs, 9 hits, 8 runs, 6 earned, 2 BBs, 7 Ks). An out later, Lambert, the 10th batter of the frame, got aboard via an error, plating Laudick for a 7-1 spread. Lambert was the picked off base by Van Loo — after a rundown — to end the threat. Alex Vetter singled up the gut in the Musketeer second and advanced on a 1-out wild pitch. Caleb Bankey walked. Jared Hoersten was robbed of extra bases as centerfielder Austin Swift made a leaping grab in right center and doubled Vetter off second for the first of three twin-killings. That started a string of eight straight outs. The Wildcats (2-6, 2-0 PCL) made it 9-1 in the home second. With two down, Farrell got aboard via an outfield error. Randy Zeller (2-for-4, 2 runs) doubled to deep left and Knueve blooped a single to left to get both runners home. The hosts made it 11-1 in the third. Laudick led off with a free pass and two outs later, Swift bunted his way aboard. Hovest slapped a 2-run double to right. Kalida went up 13-1 in the fourth. Zeller lined a hit up the gut and scored on a pair of errors on an attempted pickoff play and a relay throw to third. One out later, pinch-hitter Andrew Krouse blooped a hit down the right-field line, went to third on Laudick’s slash to right and scored on Lambert’s 2-out solid single to left. The Musketeers (2-9, 1-3 PCL) finally got some life in the top of the fifth and kept their hopes alive. Bret Clay led off with a free pass and Ryan Hoersten (2 runs) pinchran. Austin Luebrecht (2 runs) chopped one to second baseman Trent Gerding and the attempted tag of Hoersten was missed, leaving both runners safe. An out later, Sam Vetter singled to center to load the bases, ending

Schimmoeller goose-eggs Blue Jays
By LARRY HEIING DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — The St. John’s baseball team was in high gear this week in scoring 17 runs in their wins over Kalida and Fort Jennings. Thursday night at Stadium Park, the Blue Jays faced a third team in four days from Putnam County — the Ottoville Big Green — and ran into a buzz-saw named Luke Schimmoeller. Schimmoeller pitched a completegame 7-hit gem with eight strikeouts and no walks, which was more than enough as the Big Green rolled 10-0 over the Blue Jays. Ottoville head coach Ty Wannemacher said “we didn’t have any games at all last week and Alex Horstman lost a close game last night at Bluffton 2-1. We wanted to get Luke some innings before we start league play next week and he was on tonight. His combination of fastball, curve and change-up worked perfectly and he got the shutout.” Ottoville loaded the bases in the first inning against St. John’s starter Gage Seffernick. Brendon Schnipke’s and Schimmoeller’s singles sandwiched around a walk to Joel Beining filled the bags. Seffernick struck out Brandon Boecker but Horstman slapped a single to center to score Schnipke from third base. Seffernick got another strikeout and a ground out to escape the first-inning threat.





Farrell’s day on the mound for the southpaw Swift (1 2/3 IP, 5 BBs, 2 unearned runs, 1 K). Wallenhorst walked to force in R. Hoersten. A wild pitch plated Luebrecht for a 13-3 edge and after back-to-back free passes to Van Loo and Metzger scored S. Vetter, that meant Kalida would have to come to bat in the home half. Rau bounced into a 4-6-3 double play to keep the score at 13-4. A. Vetter led off the Jennings sixth with a walk but was ousted on a R. Hoersten grounder. Luebrecht walked. An out hence, S. Vetter’s fly ball was dropped for a 2-base error, scoring R. Hoersten and Luebrecht for a 13-6 deficit. Swift fanned the next batter to end the threat. Kalida added their final two tallies in the home half. Knueve singled sharply to left and an out later, Laudick walked. An out hence, Lambert singled down the left-field line to score Knueve and Swift’s knock to right got Laudick in for a 15-6 edge. In the Musketeers’ final at-bat against Zeller (1 IP, 2 BBs), Van Loo started with a free pass but was eliminated on a Metzger ground ball. Consecutive wild pitches put the latter at third. Pinch-hitter Josh Wittler walked but A. Vetter’s comebacker started a game-ending 1-6-3 double play. “We had a real chance to have a big inning in the first and then get a bad call. When you struggle to score like we have been, you need to take advantage of every chance you get; that call definitely took the wind out of our sails and we were slow to bounce back,” Jennings coach Eric Schwab explained. “Ryan (Hoersten) was up in the zone early and they hit him pretty hard; that’s what happens when you aren’t throwing downhill. We also made a couple of defensive mistakes in that inning and throughout the game. We played great defense to start the season but lately, it seems we have fallen asleep in the field; we need to get back to how we were playing before.” Kalida hosts McComb for a noon doubleheader Saturday. “We have a very young team that is growing up. We start a couple of freshmen, four or five sophomores and only one senior; we knew it would be a process,” Kalida coach Joe Recker explained. “We are starting to play better overall — we have been hitting the ball much better in particular — but we still have that one bad inning. Colton pitched very well before he ran out of gas and we used the chance to get Austin and Randy an inning or two; the weather had really hurt us there. I feel that if these kids figure out how to finish, we can be a competitive, dangerous team.” Fort Jennings hosts Antwerp 5 p.m. Monday.

St. John’s catcher Buddy Jackson tags out Ottoville’s Alex Horstman on a close play at the plate Thursday night at Stadium Park. (Delphos Herald/Randy Shellenbarger) After the Jays went down in the first, the Big Green scored again as Bailey Seibert led off the top of the second with a double. Seibert came around to score and the visitors led 2-0. The best scoring opportunity of the night for the Jays came in the second inning when Kyle Pohlman, Jesse Ditto and Andy May singled to load the bases with two outs. Schimmoeller retired Ben Wrasman on a grounder to second to end the inning. See JAYS, page 7

Critics, knee are no concern for Jets RB Johnson
Associated Press NEW YORK — Chris Johnson knows what a lot of people are saying about him. Maybe he’s lost a step. He’ll never be the electrifying playmaker he once was. Well, the New York Jets running back is listening — and can’t wait to silence the critics. “It’s always great to have things to put a chip on your shoulder, have things to motivate you,” Johnson said Thursday during a conference call. “I can turn the bad things people are saying into a good thing for me … and prove the naysayers wrong.” Johnson was signed Wednesday to a 2-year deal after he was released by the Tennessee Titans on April 7. He revealed there were other teams interested but New York was his first — and, it turned out, only — visit. “I felt like I was at home,” he said. Johnson finished with 1,077 yards — the second-lowest total of his career — and a career-worst 3.9-yard average last season. He rushed for 100 or more yards just twice. But he also played with a torn meniscus in his left knee, which was surgically repaired after the season, and believes he would’ve rushed for at least 1,200 yards if not for the injury. Johnson told reporters the knee is “getting better and better” every day and is “pretty close” to being healthy. “I know there’s a lot of people out there that still believe in me, including the Jets,” Johnson said. “That’s why they wanted to bring me in.” Johnson denied a report that suggested he has arthritis in the knee, explaining he wouldn’t have passed his physical with the Jets if there were major concerns. He rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009, when he earned his popular “CJ2K” nickname. Johnson is just the sixth player in NFL history to start his career with six straight 1,000-yard seasons and has never missed a game because of injury. “I know the type of player I am and it’s a situation where once you run for 2,000 yards, you set an expectation for yourself,” Johnson said. “So any time you don’t get 2,000 yards, it’s a situation where people are going to say, ‘Oh, is he the same guy? Is he this? Is he that?’ “The reason I can say I’m the same guy is once you run for 2,000 yards the whole focus is on you, to stop you.” Johnson could be the perfect complement to the bruising Chris Ivory and versatile Bilal Powell in the Jets’ backfield for coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. If healthy, Johnson is a threat to break a long run every time he touches the ball, whether it’s taking a handoff from Geno Smith or Michael Vick, or catching a short pass. He had 42 receptions for 345 yards and four touchdowns a year ago. After balking at the idea of sharing carries last season in Tennessee, Johnson insists that won’t be an issue in New York. “It’s just a situation from talking to Rex and talking to Marty that they’ll put everybody in the best position to help the Jets win,” he continued. “That’s what really mattered at the end of the day to me, was going to team that was a winning program and has a chance of being a contender.” He praised Ryan’s aggressive approach, noting the Jets have a great defense and “they know how to win over there.” Johnson is third on the Titans’ career rushing list behind Eddie George and Earl Campbell and was a popular figure in Tennessee. But the Titans cut ties with him to avoid paying the $8 million he was due for this season, along with the final three seasons left on the $53.5 million contract he signed in September 2011.

Sponsorship woes put Swan Racing future in doubt
Associated Press Swan Racing is reviewing its ability to compete in NASCAR because of difficulty securing corporate sponsorship for the two-car operation. Swan Racing owner Brandon Davis, the CEO of independent oil and gas company Swan Energy, bought the organization in late 2012. Cole Whitt drives the No. 26 Toyota Camry and Parker Kligerman drives the No. 30 Toyota Camry for Swan in the Sprint Cup series. “The team has been unable to secure the kind of sponsorship required to effectively operate the team,” Swan Racing wrote in a released statement. “As a result, the team management is exploring every available option. We hope to be in position to provide a detailed update in the near future.” Davis had been transforming the organization he purchased in late 2012. A former start-and-park team, he set a goal of racing in every event. Then he pumped the organization with needed cash when he signed former NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski as an investor and rapper 50 Cent used his SMS Audio line to partner with the team. But unable to keep funding the cars out of his own pocket, Davis may have to shut down the team. That leaves two rookies drivers with few options at this point of the season. Whitt (33rd in the standings) and Kligerman (38th) have struggled to produce any meaningful results on the track or finish races. The Cup series is off this weekend, then heads to Richmond. Davis came into NASCAR with every intention of building a competitive team. He rebranded the Inception Racing team he purchased in August 2012 and vowed to build a start-andpark foundation. Under the Inception brand, former driver David Stremme parked early in 20 of the 28 races in 2012. Swan Racing was a onecar team last season, primarily with Stremme. The team had five top-20 finishes. Davis added Kligerman and Whitt to the roster and expanded to two cars for the 2014 season. Expanding to two teams required doubling the team personnel, and a larger investment, which Davis did without steady sponsorship. “We did everything we said we were going to do and paid all our bills. It was just more difficult than I expected,” Davis said in February. “NASCAR is an entrepreneur’s dream. It’s a good platform because you can be creative with the way you bring money into your team and work partnerships. The structure opens the door for entrepreneurs to come in and use this platform for different kinds of marketing opportunities, and this is one of them.” Davis reached out to a variety of interested parties to help fund the team and bring attention to his fledgling program. Romanowski came aboard as an investor and Iowa businessman Anthony Marlowe was added this season as a minority owner. See RACING, page 7

Kuchar builds on Masters momentum
Associated Press HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. — There were no major letdowns for Masters contenders Matt Kuchar and Jordan Spieth at the RBC Heritage on Thursday. Kuchar, who tied for fifth at Augusta National, shot a bogey-free 5-under 66 to share the first-round lead with Scott Langley and William McGirt. The 20-year-old Spieth tied for second behind Bubba Watson last Sunday and continued his strong play with a 69, part of a large group tied for fifth at Harbour Town Golf Links. Kuchar and Spieth both spent much of Sunday in the pressure cooker that is the Masters’ final round. But neither player allowed any lingering disappointment or fatigue from a grueling week to slow them down here. “I was anxious to get back out and play another competitive round,” Spieth said. “So today was going to be kind of therapy, in a sense, from last week.” Langley and McGirt each had five birdies on the front nine to match Kuchar. Harris English was two shots behind after a 68 before Spieth topped a group of 15 another stroke back. In all, 54 competitors shot par or better despite the gusts of 20 mph that swept through the course much of the round. The week after the season’s first major is generally one of rest for many of golf’s big names and this year’s no different. Masters champ Watson took off, as did Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy. World No. 1 Tiger Woods continues recuperating from back surgery that kept him from playing Augusta National for the first time in 20 years. Just six of the world’s top-20 ranked golfers teed it up this week, led by Kuchar at No. 6. Spieth, who tied with fellow Masters rookie Jonas Blixt for second last week, didn’t consider withdrawing at Harbour Town, convinced of the benefits of quickly getting back to work. It was also a get-to-know-you session for Spieth, who was paired with U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson and 2012 Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III. “It was unbelievable just to be playing with them,” Spieth said. For Kuchar, playing was a no-brainer considering the strong run he’s been on the past month or so. He tied for fourth at the Texas Open three weeks ago and lost in a playoff at the Houston Open a week later right before the Masters. And Kuchar understands being focused at the Masters can mean being zoned in at Harbour Town. “You’re going to see a lot of guys, if they’re not too run down from a major championship, come out and play some pretty good golf the week following.” Kuchar played with confidence and precision, avoiding the winds when possible and playing to the meatiest parts of the smallish greens. After starting on the back nine, Kuchar birdied both the par 5 holes on the front side before finishing with a birdie on his final hole, the ninth, to shoot in the 60s for the sixth time in his past 11 rounds here. Langley, with his early birdie run, looked as if he might finish on top alone after a 17-foot birdie putt on the par-3 14th moved him to 6 under. But Langley wound up in the scrub along the 18th green and took bogey to fall into the three-way tie for first. Langley has missed seven cuts this season, including his past two tournaments. But he felt confident in his game and took motivation from his friend Spieth’s run at a green jacket last week. “Seeing Jordan do so well, almost


DIVOTS: Nick Faldo may make his weekend TV job after all. The CBS Sports analyst opened his first RBC Heritage in eight years with a 6-over 77 to tie for next-to-last place. The 56-year-old Faldo won his first U.S. event at Harbour Town in 1984. … Davis Love III has been the Harbour master at the RBC Heritage with five victories and a tour-best $2.63 million won here. But he missed the past two years with injuries and was back for the first time since 2011. The layoff didn’t slow Love down as he opened with a 1-under 70 — his 59th career round under par at Harbour Town. … Tom Watson was a 2-time RBC Heritage champion who hadn’t played here since 2001. He shot a 4-over 75. Miguel Angel Jimenez set for Champions Tour debut DULUTH, Ga. — Miguel Angel Jimenez’s starring role in the best Masters ever for players 50 and over was the perfect lead-in for his Champions Tour debut. Jimenez finished fourth in the Masters and Bernhard Langer tied for eighth Sunday. STATS LLC confirmed it marked the first time two players 50 or over finished in the top eight. Jimenez had the best Masters finish for a player 50 or over since Sam Snead, also 50, was third in 1963. Fred Couples, 54, finished tied for 20th after being in contention early in the final round. Couples said “I honestly don’t think it’s shocking” to see the older golfers thrive in Augusta. “To see Bernhard and obviously Jimenez — who just turned 50 but even if he was 49 — it’s still remarkable to play that well, but he’s a top-quality European player,” Couples explained. “Bernhard is the best Champions Tour player but he’s played Augusta a lot of times.” Langer, 56, is the defending champion in the Champions Tour’s Greater Gwinnett Championship, which begins today at TPC Sugarloaf near Atlanta. Langer on Thursday predicted Jimenez will “leave his mark” on the tour. Jimenez isn’t expected to become a regular on the Champions Tour this year as he remains focused on his goal of making the European Ryder Cup team. Jimenez, from Spain, has 20 wins on the European tour. The strong finish in Augusta created a spotlight that will follow Jimenez to Sugarloaf TPC. Even so, Couples felt Langer should be considered the favorite. Langer had a final-round 69 in the Masters. Langer won this season’s Champions Tour opening event in Hawaii. He leads the tour’s points and earnings standings. Langer is working on a streak of 15 straight top-10 Champions Tour finishes, including five this year.

Rosberg expects another tight race in Shanghai SHANGHAI — Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg expects another tight race with teammate Lewis Hamilton this weekend at the Chinese Grand Prix, although hopefully with a different ending. The teammates dueled for the lead at the Bahrain GP throughout the race, coming inches away from colliding on several occasions, before Hamilton nipped Rosberg at the line by just one second. “I don’t like coming second,” Rosberg said with a laugh Thursday in Shanghai. “I know that I can win here (referring to his first career F1 victory at the Chinese GP in 2012). I know that most likely it’s going to be against Lewis so that’s where my mind is at the moment.” The Mercedes cars have been so far ahead of their rivals in the first three

Swan Racing made headlines at this year’s Daytona 500 when 50 Cent brought his headphones and audio line into NASCAR. He had branding for his SMS Audio line on both Kligerman and Whitt’s cars for the Daytona 500. The logos were on Kligerman and Whitt’s uniforms and the drivers were featured on Swanbranded SMS Audio headphones. However, Kligerman’s car went airborne and landed on its roof in his first full Daytona 500 practice and his luck never really improved. He’s finished 40th or worse in five of his eight starts.


races of the Formula One season that Hamilton and Rosberg have been racing each other for first and second place. Hamilton topped his teammate in Bahrain and Malaysia, while Rosberg won the season opener in Australia after Hamilton, the pole-sitter, retired with engine trouble. The two are already seen as the two front-runners for the championship. Rosberg leads the standings with 61 points and Hamilton is in second with 50 — well ahead Force India’s Niko Hulkenberg in third at 28. With no team orders in Bahrain, the two were allowed to race for the lead and were so close at times, Rosberg explained, “I couldn’t have fit my hand between the tires.” At one point, Rosberg thought his teammate got a bit too aggressive as they jostled for the lead around a corner, complaining to the team over the radio. The German said, however, there were no hard feelings after the race and that he and Hamilton discussed it further Thursday evening to clear the air. Although Hamilton and Rosberg get along relatively well compared to other F1 teammates, Hamilton acknowledged in Bahrain that their relationship could take a hit if they end up battling for the championship. But the Briton, aiming for his third win in a row, had nothing but praise Thursday for the race his teammate contested in Bahrain. Their rivals will probably be hoping the two silver cars come back to the pack, given the dominance Mercedes has shown in the early stages of the new V6 turbo hybrid era. Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel, the 4-time defending world champion, stayed close to the Mercedes cars in Malaysia, finishing third. But the German added there’s still a big gap between the teams.

Seffernick walked Horstman and hit Kyle Bendele with a pitch to put both runners on with one out in the third. Jared Fanning popped out and Seibert singled to left field. Austin Heiing fired into Josh Warnecke at shortstop, who turned and threw a bullet to catcher Buddy Jackson to nail Horstman at the plate for the third out. Schimmoeller then got in a groove on the mound in the third inning, mixing his combination of pitches to keep the St. John’s batters guessing. He struck out the side in 1-2-3 fashion to preserve the 2-0 lead. Neither side scored in the fourth inning but the Big Green managed to score another run in the next inning, following a walk to Schimmoeller. Horstman followed with a single to put runners at the corners with one out. Schimmoeller scored on a wild pitch to extend the lead to three and Horstman moved to second. Another great defensive play by the Jays kept them in the game as Bendele lined out to May in right field. May then doubled Horstman off at second base

to end the inning. “We have some things to work on to improve - like our base running,” Wannemacher said. “We made some mistakes on the basepaths that cost us some runs. Luckily, we got some timely hitting to cover our mistakes.” Jared Fanning led off the sixth with a walk and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Seibert’s grounder was bobbled and Fanning came around to score. With runners again on the corners for the Big Green, the Jays defense came through with a big play. As Schnipke attempted to steal second base, Jackson faked the throw to second and instead fired to Seffernick on the mound, who caught Seibert off third in a rundown for the big out. Ottoville erupted for six runs in the final inning to secure the victory for the Big Green as they improved to 2-4. Blue Jay coach Ryan Warnecke said “Schimmoeller kept our batters offbalance tonight with his curve ball and change-up. On the field, we took a step backwards after we played an errorfree game at Fort Jennings; we made too many mistakes again tonight.” The Blue Jays (2-6) open Midwest

Lupus sufferers have wide range of symptoms
DEAR DOCTOR K: I saw my doctor for a rash on my face. After further tests, she diagnosed me with lupus. What is this? What is the treatment? DEAR READER: Lupus is an autoimmune disease. Your body’s immune system mistakenly attacks your body’s own tissues rather than protecting them from outside invaders. Immune proteins called autoantibodies attack many different parts of the body. This can lead to inflammation and tissue damage in the joints, skin, kidney, nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves), blood, heart, lungs, digestive system and eyes. The cause of lupus remains a mystery. Some researchers think it may be triggered by an infection in people who are susceptible to the disease, but no particular type of infection has been discovered to be the cause. In some people, lupus causes only mild illness. But in others it leads to potentially deadly complications. Lupus can cause a wide range of symptoms throughout the body including: -- malaise (a general sick feeling); -- fever; -- loss of appetite; -- weight loss; -- muscle and joint pain and swelling; -- a butterfly-shaped rash on the cheeks and bridge of the nose; -- a more widespread rash and flu-like symptoms after exposure to sunlight; -- hair loss; -- a rash that appears as firm, round red plaques with raised borders;

-- painful ulcers in the mouth, nose and genital areas. Other possible symptoms include: -- Neurological symptoms, such as difficulty with memory and concentration, seizures and confusion; -- Psychiatric symptoms, including the most dramatic psychiatric illness -- psychosis -- or a loss of contact with reality; -- Heart problems: chest pain caused by increased rates of atherosclerosis and inflammation of the outer lining of the heart; -- Lung symptoms: pain on taking in a deep breath, shortness of breath; -- Loss of vision. Symptoms tend to come and go. Periods of intensified symptoms are called flare-ups. Periods when symptoms disappear are called remissions. You can help prevent flare-ups by limiting sun exposure and using sunscreen when you are in the sun. Many different types of medications may be used to treat lupus. Doctors usually try antimalarial drugs first. Recent studies suggest that lupus patients treated with antimalarial medications have less active disease and less organ damage over time. Other drug treatment options include: -- nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) -- corticosteroids -- immunosuppressive drugs -- methotrexate Lupus is a long-lasting condition. Life expectancy and quality of life can vary widely depending on the severity of your illness. Fortunately, new treatments in recent years have helped to control the disease in many people.

Obama: 8 million signed up for health care
JOSH LEDERMAN and RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated Press WASHINGTON — Eight million people have signed up for health care through new insurance exchanges and the proportion of younger applicants has increased, President Barack Obama said Thursday. The enrollments exceeded expectations and offered new hope to Democrats who are defending the law ahead of the midterm elections. An impromptu appearance in the White House briefing room offered the president an opportunity to trumpet the new figures, which beat initial projections by 1 million. With an eye toward November, Obama castigated Republicans for continuing to seek out every opportunity to thwart the Affordable Care Act. “This thing is working,” Obama said of his signature domestic achievement. Touting modest progress on another front,

Life Line of Ohio Organ Procurement Coordinator Jackie Hines explains how easy it is to become an organ donor to St. John’s freshmen during a presentation Thursday at the school. (Delphos Herald/Nancy Spencer) (Continued from page 1) “I am a double-lung transplant recipient,” she said. “I was 19 years old when the doctor told me I had to leave college, come home, lie in bed for 10 months with a feeding tube and oxygen and wait on a donor or die. I couldn’t walk across a room. “Instead of planning my wedding I planned my funeral. I didn’t want my parents burdened with that. Today, I’m married, I finished college, I have a good job, I like to ride bikes with my husband and I feel good.” Payne was diagnosed with the cystic fibrosis at 2 months old and told at 16, she would need a transplant to survive. She still has cystic fibrosis but since the lung transplant, it now affects her sinuses. She has surgery about every three years. “I still have it but it doesn’t affect my lungs because they aren’t genetically mine,” she added. Looking healthy and fit, Payne looked at students and asked them if they had ever thought they or someone they love might some day need an organ transplant. “I’m here today because

Astronomers spot most Earth-like planet yet
ALICIA CHANG Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Astronomers have discovered what they say is the most Earth-like planet yet detected — a distant, rocky world that’s similar in size to our own and exists in the Goldilocks zone where it’s not too hot and not too cold for life. The find, announced Thursday, excited planet hunters who have been scouring the Milky Way galaxy for years for potentially habitable places outside our solar system. “This is the best case for a habitable planet yet found. The results are absolutely rock solid,” University of California, Berkeley astronomer Geoff Marcy, who had no role in the discovery, said in an email. The planet was detected by NASA’s orbiting Kepler telescope, which studies the heavens for subtle changes in brightness that indicate an orbiting planet is crossing in front of a star. From those changes, scientists can calculate a planet’s size and make certain inferences about its

Obama said 35 percent of enrollees are under 35 years old, suggesting that in the final weeks of enrollment, the administration managed to sign up higher numbers of younger, healthier people who are critical to the law’s viability. The most coveted age group comprises those between 18 and 34 years old. White House officials said that for the 36 states where the federal government is taking the lead, 28 percent are in that age group — a step in the right direction from March, when the administration said just 25 percent were 18 to 34. In a sharp rebuke to his political opponents, Obama called out states that have refused to embrace an expansion of Medicaid under “Obamacare,” arguing that their opposition was rooted in nothing more than sheer ideology and political spite. “That’s wrong. It should stop,” he said. “Those folks should be able to get health insurance like everybody else.”

CARSON WALKER Associated Press ELK POINT, S.D. — Cheryl Miller and Pamella Jackson had planned to celebrate the end of the 1971 school year by gathering with classmates at a quarry along a gravel road. But the 17-year-old girls weren’t known for frequenting parties, so when they didn’t show up, other teens just assumed they had changed plans, perhaps to avoid any underage drinking or pot smoking. It soon became clear that the well-liked pair from the farming town of Alcester, S.D., had vanished in their Studebaker. Now the 43-year-old mystery of their disappearance has been solved, largely by the ebb and flow of a dirty creek and the contents of a well-preserved purse, which indicate the girls probably died after their car plunged into a creek. “This has really been a tragedy for two families, a tragedy for a class, as well as all of South Dakota, to some degree,” state Attorney General Marty Jackley said this week. The questions began on the evening of May 19, 1971. After visiting Miller’s ailing grandmother at a hospital, the girls met up with some boys at a church parking lot and started to follow them to the quarry. Miller drove the beige 1960 Studebaker Lark that had belonged to her grandmother, who died shortly after she disappeared. Jackson was in the passenger’s seat. The boys missed a turn and accidentally drove past the party. When they turned around, they told authorities, they no longer saw the Studebaker’s headlights. They figured the girls had simply lost the nerve to attend the party. The celebration went on, but the girls and the Studebaker would not be seen again until 2013. In the following weeks, volunteers and lawenforcement officers searched the gravel pit, surrounding roads and even the nearby Missouri River. But their efforts yielded nothing. The mystery persisted, year after year, for more than four decades, tormenting the girls’ families, baffling investigators (Continued from page 1)

makeup. The newfound object, dubbed Kepler-186f, circles a red dwarf star 500 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus. A light-year is almost 6 trillion miles. The planet is about 10 percent larger than Earth and may very well have liquid water — a key ingredient for life — on its surface, scientists said. That is because it resides at the outer edge of the habitable temperature zone around its star — the sweet spot where lakes, rivers or oceans can exist without freezing solid or boiling away.

She returned to Michigan to have the cataract taken out of her left eye. The doctors in Ann Arbor determined this eye would qualify for the implant. “Then we set up to have the surgery on Jan. 2,” Schulte said. “We had to cancel because there was a blizzard and we couldn’t get to the hospital.” The surgery was rescheduled for Jan. 16, 2014. Dr. Thiran Jaysunder was her surgeon. “The doctor offered to pay for my hotel room if I would come up the night before,” Schulte said. “He wanted to make sure I was there for the scheduled surgery.” Schulte was the first patient in the United States to have the Retina Protheses System implanted after the system received FDA approval, noting there were doctors from all over the world present at the surgery, along with representatives from the Second Sight Medical Products company. “It’s hard to imagine that someone from Putnam County was getting this kind of notoriety,” Schulte said, laughing. The implant surgery took four and a half hours. She had the surgery on a Thursday and came home. The Schultes had to rush back to Michigan on Sunday when Linda’s eye began to seep and had to have follow-up surgery on Feb. 6 when it was determined she needed another stitch. “I had to wear a big eye patch all this time,” Schulte said. On Feb. 25, the Schultes returned to Ann Arbor for an appointment where Linda was given her new glasses to go with her bionic eye. She was instructed to wear the glasses so she could get used to them. After Schulte had sufficiently recovered from her surgery, the retinal prothesis was activated. Training then began for Schulte to adapt to the new vision. Linda’s glasses are equipped with a camera that captures images and converts them into a series of small electrical pules. The pulses are transmitted wirelessly to the

prothesis and the numerous electrodes on the surface of the retinal. These pulses are intended to stimulate the retina’s remaining cells, resulting in a corresponding perception of patterns of light in the brain. Linda is having to learn to interpret these visual patterns. Schulte has three or four more visits for her training to adopt to the new way of seeing. She understands she will not have 20/20 vision or be able to distinguish faces but will be able to recognize dark and light shapes. “I saw my grandson playing basketball,” Linda said proudly. She was outside when he was playing wearing a shirt with a white stripe on it. “I could see the flashes for the stripe and hear the basketball and knew I was seeing him playing basketball,” she continued. Another time she was baking cookies and saw the gallon of milk through flashes on the counter. “It kept me from knocking the milk on the floor,” she said. Schulte said her and her husband “Smiley” have really appreciated the support them have received from the community. “They have been so good with their support and prayers,” she said. Since her surgery, four other patients have received the implants and another man is scheduled to have it. Schulte has been in touch with two sisters who had the surgery and the man who is going to have the surgery. “They want us to get together so we can share our experiences,” she said. Schulte explained if a person is considering the implant, they need to have one or two people who are able to make the many trips to the hospital that are required. “You also have to understand you won’t get back things like being able to drive or read but will experience some of the great little things like getting to see your grandchildren run around the yard,” she added.


and inviting false allegations against a sex offender. At one point, the state’s cold-case unit reopened the investigation after a prison snitch implicated a fellow classmate who had lived nearby and was behind bars for raping a woman. Authorities concluded he made the story up. Then in September, flooding followed by a drought brought the car into view. It was upsidedown in Brule Creek next to the gravel pit where the girls had been headed. A fisherman spotted two tires sticking above the water. On Tuesday, authorities held a news conference to confirm what townspeople had suspected since the car re-emerged: The remains inside were those of Miller and Jackson. The evidence seemed frozen in time. A picture of Mount Rushmore on the white license plate was clearly visible, as were the green registration numbers. A watch still had its strap and clearly showed the time it stopped, 10:20. Miller’s purse was intact, containing her driver’s license, coins, a couple of letters from friends and other items, all in relatively good shape for being submerged for so long. Those belongings and DNA were used to identify the remains. There’s no evidence the teens had been drinking. And mechanical tests on the car did not suggest any foul play. The headlight switch on the dashboard was on. The car was in high gear, and both girls were found in the front seat. Those factors point to an accident, Jackley said. Jackson’s late mother, Adele, told people the loss of a daughter was especially hard on her husband, Oscar. “She said just about every night after supper, he’d go out driving around the countryside looking for that Studebaker,” said Paul Buum, publisher of the local newspaper, the Alcester Union and Hudsonite. Oscar Jackson died at age 102, five days before the car was found. An obituary noted that his daughter’s disappearance was his “greatest sadness.” 2013/14 school year; and • A resolution authorizing Superintendent Dennis Fuge to accept resignations during times when the board is not in session and to hire staff between board meetings.
