VAN WERT — Van Wert County Dog
Warden Rich Strunkenburg has been placed on
paid administrative leave by Van Wert Sheriff
Thomas Riggenbach pending an investigation
into substandard conditions at the animal shelter
on Bonnewitz Ave.
“On Sunday, my office got a call from a person concerned with conditions out at the shelter
at the Humane Society,” Riggenbach began. “So
I had a unit go out and see what we had and I’m
not going to get into specifics of what we found
but it was not what was acceptable to me, so I
initiated an investigation that started Sunday.”
Strunkenburg has been under the direct
supervision of the Van Wert County Sheriff’s
Office since August 2013 when the County
Commissioners placed the dog warden’s office
under the Sheriff’s Office due to complaints

SPENCERVILLE — Village Administrator Sean
Chapman summarized the last round of water line leaks
Spencerville has endured during the council meeting
Monday night. The total is up to 42 — which cost $1,500
each to repair.
“It’s clear I need to do something new and we must
focus on our critical infrastructure in the near future,”
he said adamantly. “Repairing a leak after the water
treatment plant is online will cost upwards of $2,500$3,000.”
He said the cost of treating water will go up significantly and the repair costs will be proportionate.
Chapman said since repairing all the leaks that have
gone undetected, the village uses 130,00-150,000 gallons
of water per day as compared to the 250,000-300,000
before finding and repairing the leaks.
After the sewer plant is paid off in a few years,
Chapman explained that an ordinance restructuring sewer
rates may be the best way to go to get funding for a significant water line replacement project.
He also updated council on the progress of the Canal Trail
project, which is moving steadily forward. The required
Notice of Intent and Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan
will be submitted to the Ohio Environmental Protection
Agency (OEPA) this week.
“Once they provide approval, we will be able to begin
the project,” He reported. “The only remaining obstacle is
AEP’s poles and guy wires.”
Council was also updated on the water treatment plant
(WTP) progress. Chapman reported that all process piping
and interior painting is complete and the chemical feed
pumps and panels have been set.
“I am in the process of determining the best place to get
the chemicals for the plant,” he explained. “We submitted
a request for proposal to four companies and will evaluate
all quotes to ensure that we get the best pricing.”
He said electrical work is continuing, the service connection was approved and AEP has been authorized to
finalize the new service feed. Most of the interior conduits
have been run and now workers will begin pulling wires to
all of the components.
This project involves the planing and resurfacing of
the following streets: Sixth from Elizabeth to Michael,
Michael from Fifth to Seventh, Canal from Second to
Fourth and Pearl from Second to Fourth. It also involves
the leveling of two sanitary sewer manhole covers.
Since the electrical outages during Summerfest last
month, Chapman has been working with American Electric
Power to rectify the power issue. He had a conversation
with an AEP Customer Service Representative regarding
their service for the downtown panel.

“On the supervision side of it, Rich and I
talk almost every day,” Riggenbach explained.
“He might also be in here more than once a day.
He was on supervision for a number of things
but not as close as needed to be with the shelter area. That’s something that’s on me for not
making sure he did a better job on that. I felt he
was doing pretty well with what I was seeing,
handling and responding to calls for service.”
As far as straightening up matters at the shelter, according to Riggenbach, “I’ve pulled one of
my deputies off the road and assigned him out
at the shelter temporarily to take care of things
we need to get squared away out there and still
do the best we can to still provide service to the
county.”
Apparently, there were a couple of animals
that were taken to a local veterinarian to be
assessed. Riggenbach reported that one animal remained at the veterinarian’s office as of
Wednesday and that one animal would probably
either be back at the shelter on Thursday if it was
not adopted out first.

FORT JENNINGS — Jennings
Memorial Association is currently holding
its Heritage China Drive geared toward
securing enough place settings to accommodate attendees of all types of celebrations — weddings, birthday and New
Year’s Eve parties, etc. — held at the
Memorial Hall.
Association member Judy Schroeder
said they are looking for fine china patterns
from the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s or earlier and
assorted serving pieces to accommodate
attendees gathering at the Hall for social
events. She said they will take partial sets
as well as whole sets.
Schroeder said the drive has promoted
and unified the community’s spirit and the
older adult generation is so excited to give
back to Memorial Hall.
“I can see it in their eyes, that feeling

that if they donate a piece of their heritage, it will live on within Memorial Hall,”
she explained. “So you have Von Sossan
dinnerware mixed with Schimmoeller’s
glassware mixed with Berelsman’s punch
bowl.”
The association has already collected
150 place settings and would like to have
100 more for back up.
“This may be someone’s grandmother’s
set they store in an attic and they don’t
know what to do with it,” she said. “Two
of our biggest needs are stainless steel silverware and steak knives.”
She said they are looking for large
assorted serving pieces to use on a buffet,
fine china sets including plates, cups, saucers, dessert bowls and plates, decorative
glassware and tableware, wine and water
glasses, stainless steel silverware and steak
knives.

Fire season in West
expected to get more intense
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP)
— Despite widespread drought
in the West and expectations
of an above-average wildfire
season, wildfires have burned
less than half the 10-year average area so far this summer.
U.S. Forest Service Chief
Tom Tidwell said Wednesday
that largely has been a matter
of luck, with the hot windy
weather known as "red flag"
days not lining up with the
lighting strikes that start most
fires, particularly in California.
But that is changing, he
said from Washington, D.C.
Eighteen large fires were
burning in the Northwest with
intensities not normally seen
until August.
With only about $1 billion budgeted for fighting
wildfires, the Forest Service
expects by late August to once

such as forest thinning proj-

sentenced on a charge of burglary, a
felony of the third degree. His sentence
was: three years community control,
six months in county jail, 30 days jail
at later date, ordered to have no contact with victim, 200 hours community
service, two years intensive probation,
ordered to pay restitution of $260 to
the victim, plus court costs and partial appointed counsel fees. Twenty-four
months prison was deferred. Jail begins
at 8 a.m. Monday.
Roger Hibbard, 37, Paulding, was
sentenced on three counts of attempted
telecommunications harassment, each
a misdemeanor of the first degree. He
was sentenced to jail 180 days for each
count, consecutive. He was given credit
for 12 days already served.
Ryan Schaadt, 29, Van Wert, was
sentenced for possession of heroin, a
felony of the fourth degree. His sentence
was 18 months prison credit for 90 days
already served. He was also ordered to
pay court costs.

ects, to continue fighting fires
as the season goes on into
the fall, Tidwell said. Last
year, that amount was $500
million.
"If we can stop a fire from
coming into a community, we
will stop it," he said. "Cost
is just an outcome. It isn't
what drives our actions. What
drives our actions is safe,
effective suppression tactics."

1 percent of blazes across
the country each season —
take up 30 percent of wildfire spending. The Obama
administration has proposed

Today is Thursday, July 24, the 205th day of 2014.
There are 160 days left in the year.
Today’s Highlight in History:
On July 24, 1974, the Supreme Court unanimously
ruled that President Richard Nixon had to turn over subpoenaed White House tape recordings to the Watergate
special prosecutor.
On this date:
In 1783, Latin American revolutionary Simon Bolivar
was born in Caracas, Venezuela.
In 1862, Martin Van Buren, the eighth president of

town where he was born in 1782.
In 1866, Tennessee became the first state to be readmitted to the Union after the Civil War.
In 1911, Yale University history professor Hiram
Bingham III found the “Lost City of the Incas,” Machu
Picchu, in Peru.
In 1923, the Treaty of Lausanne, which settled
the boundaries of modern Turkey, was concluded in
Switzerland.
In 1937, the state of Alabama dropped charges

Ten years ago: Without promising what specific
steps he would take, President George W. Bush said in
his weekly radio address that his administration was
committed to relying on the recommendations of the
September 11 commission in waging the war on terrorism. Former Nixon administration official Fred LaRue,
who served a prison term for Watergate, died in Biloxi,
Mississippi, at age 75.
Five years ago: Trying to tamp down a national uproar
over race, President Barack Obama acknowledged

arresting officer, for “a beer here in the White House.”
One year ago: The House narrowly rejected, 217-205,

Governor helps kick off
161st Ohio State Fair

COLUMBUS — The annual Ohio State Fair has kicked off
in Columbus.
The new attractions this year include a bear show, a gymnastics and dance performance on horseback, and foods such
as the sloppy donut, banana dog, chicken dog and funnel cake
sundae.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich joined general manager Virgil
Strickler in opening ceremonies Wednesday. Kasich then
toured parts of the fairgrounds with his wife, Karen, and their
twin 14-year-old daughters, Emma and Reese. Ohio's governor
routinely opens the event, but it is unusual to make it a family
affair.
Kasich is seeking re-election this year. He faces Democrat
Ed FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga County executive in Cleveland.
This is the 161st year for the fair.

UNOH offers new
bachelor degree
Information submitted

LIMA — The University of
Northwestern Ohio, known nationally as a leader in automotive, diesel and high performance education, was recently granted permission from its accrediting body, The
High Learning Commission, to
offer a bachelor’s degree in automotive technology supervision.
This course of study goes beyond
the technical automotive education
provided by the associate degree
level, adding advanced technical
and business management classes. The automotive technology
supervision degree is designed as
a 2+2 bachelor’s program and can
be completed in the College of
Applied Technologies.
Obtaining a bachelor’s degree
will help students get a head start
in their career with skills in marketing, customer service, safety
regulations and management. This
allows students who have obtained
an associate’s degree in automotive
technology, agricultural equipment
technology, diesel technology, high
performance motorsports technology or alternate fuels technology
to complete the requirements for a
bachelor’s degree in just two additional years of study.
Prospective students fall into
two categories: those who have
completed an associate’s degree,
and those who are just entering college. For those who have received
their associate degree in one of the
above-mentioned fields, they can
begin classes in the fall or spring
quarter for 24 months. For students who are just entering college,
they will select a major within the
College of Applied Technologies
for their associate degree. Then,
upon completion of that degree,
students will enroll into the automotive technology supervision
program for their junior and senior
years. Graduates will have the
skills to enter the workforce at a
supervisory level.
Coursework will cover topics
including: supervision in the automotive industry automotive customer relations marketing in the
automotive industry safety, legal
and environmental issues human
resource management leadership
organizational behavior.

Practical tips to grow
and manage cover crops
BY JIM HOORMAN
Putnam County Extension
news@delphosherald.com
Jim Hoorman, Putnam County
AGNR Extension Educator will be
out of the office until Aug. 5, teaching
Cover Crops and Soil Ecology in China.
If you have questions, please call the
Extension office at 419-523-6294; or
contact Curtis Young at 419-238-1214
in Van Wert County; or Ed Lentz at 419422-3851 in Hancock County.
The following are 10 tips for growing
and managing cover crops.
Tip 1: Use cover crop mixtures composed of at least one grass, one legume,
and one brassica or other diverse cover
crop species. Mix summer annuals with
fall and winter annuals to increase crop
diversity.
Tip 2: Select diverse species that
maximize both sunlight and moisture
interception. At least 50 percent of cover
crop species should be low growing,
another 30 percent intermediate, and
20 percent tall growing. Select cover
crops that have a variety of taproots and
fibrous root systems that incept moisture
from different soil regions. The goal is
to utilize 100% of available sunlight and
moisture to minimize direct competition
for nutrients and water.
Tip 3: To determine initial seeding
rate in cover crop mixtures, divide the
full rate of seed needed for each cover
crop in a monoculture and divide by
the number of cover crop species planted. Small-seeded cover crops should
be planted shallow, large-seeded cover
crops deeper. Set the planter or drill
for the largest seed in the mixture.

For example, a simple cover crop mixture is oats, crimson clover and radish.
The full rate for oats by itself is one
bushel per acre (32 pounds) divided by
3 or 10-11 pounds in a three-way mix.
Crimson clover is 15 pounds by itself
or 5 pounds/A in a mixture and radish
(daikon) is 3-5 pounds/A by itself or 1-2
pounds in a three way mixture.
Tip 4: Add manure or fertilizer to
cover crops to increase biomass production. Most fertilizer or manure applied
will become available to the next crop
after it is decomposed. Adding 50
pounds of nitrogen to most grass or brassica cover crops may double biomass
production if manure is not available.
Adding a legume to the cover crop mix
reduces the need for additional nitrogen
fertilizer because the cover crops in a
mixture share nutrients between species.
Tip 5: Most cover crops need a minimum of 1 inch of rain and at least 60
days of growth to survive the winter.
Due to day length and soil temperature,
planting or drilling even one week earlier is beneficial for establishing cover
crops successfully.
Tip 6: Drilling is preferred to broadcasting seed to improve seed-to-soil
contact and to improve germination. If
you are broadcasting or flying on seed
early, increase the seeding rate by 10 to
20 percent to compensate for reduced
germination. Large-seeded cover crops
generally should not be flown or broadcast unless soils are really wet. For corn
production, broadcast seed when you
can see 50% light penetration between
the rows; for soybeans, when 25% of
soybeans leaves are turning yellow.
Tip 7: Some early seeded cover crop

failures are associated with herbicide
carryover, especially when associated
with triazines (Ex. Atrazine) and ALS
herbicides (Ex. Pursuit and Scepter).
If you are dissatisfied with cover crop
stands in the fall that were broadcast
and you had plenty of rain, chances are
herbicide carryover may be an issue.
Tip 8: Use legume cover crops like
crimson clover, winter peas, cow peas,
red clover before corn to add 50-150
pounds of organic nitrogen or brassicas
to aerate the soil before corn production. Minimize using high carbon to
nitrogen ration cover crops that will
need additional nitrogen to decompose.
Remember, the corn is the last organism
to utilize nitrogen, soil microbes and the
soil organic matter will tie up most of
the available nitrogen first, so the corn
feeds last.
Tip 9: Legumes maximize their
nitrogen production (90% complete)
at blooming. Terminate legume cover
crops before they set seed and tie up
nitrogen. Most nitrogen in the legume
cover crop will become available to next
crop in four to eight weeks once they
decompose.
Tip 10: Add 40-60 pounds of nitrogen
in corn starter to stimulate corn growth
before soil microbes begin reproduction.
Most soil microbes double their population with every 10 degree Fahrenheit
increase in soil temperature. As microbial populations increase with moisture
and warmer soils, nutrient recycling
increases, and more nutrients are available for crop production. Long-term
nitrogen studies show that almost 50
percent of N for corn comes from existing soil organic matter.

If you suffer from poor circulation, injury, swelling or any condition that leaves your feet fatigued
and sore, then read on to discover
the breakthrough that can change
your life.
Good news comes in the form of
a ‘pain-busting microfiber’ that is
used to weave a circulation-boosting sock, called BambusaTM.
Better Blood Flow
The ‘miracle sock’ is made from
a new, patented anion-technology
that is weaved into every strand of
thread used to make a BambusaTM
sock. This special micro-fiber
thread is made from revolutionary
bamboo charcoal to stimulate
blood flow and revitalize feet.
When this material comes in contact with body-heat it is proven to
release circulation-boosting ions.
The 3D-weave technology used
in the material has been compared
to infrared light therapy to help revitalize stiff and sore muscles. The
manufacturer, who also makes a
back and wrist sleeve, says the material provides almost instant relief
to any part of the body it touches,
making it ideal for diabetics, athletes, inflammation, stiffness and
swelling.
Anne M. from California agrees.
“Bambusa socks are absolutely the
most comfortable socks I have ever
worn! My feet are no longer fatigued!”
Therapy
Without A Prescription!
When the socks were photographed using a thermographic
imaging camera, results showed up
to a 17% to 22% increase in blood
flow. This helped to improve muscle oxygenation and decrease foot
fatigue. The socks have been proven
to provide extended relief from
cold, swollen and fatigued feet.
Doctor
Recommended
Pain specialist
of 30 years, Dr.
Jahner comments
on the 3D-weave
technology. “Infrared therapy has
been used for
years at medical
clinics to treat vascular and circulatory conditions. Physical therapists
use infrared therapy to speed recovery. Better blood flow equals
less pain. This microfiber works
much the same way.”

The infrared anions generated by the charcoal bamboo increase blood flow and deliver oxygen to the tissues. After
wearing for only minutes there is an increase in temperature
due to the increased blood flow, resulting in improved comfort and reduced swelling. Twenty minutes after using the
anion-fiber infused socks, patient has better blood flow and
less numbness.
"Circulatory dysfunction affects
MOST of the adult population in
the United States. Heart Disease,
Strokes and Diabetic conditions are
at epidemic levels; anything that
improves circulation improves cellular health and vitality. I use the
Bambusa product myself and recommend it to my clients. It really
works!” states Dr Jahner.
Results in Minutes?
John G. of California claims he
felt immediate results with his
tired, swollen feet. “Without exaggeration the relief was almost instantaneous. It is like a heating pad
set to low and wrapped around my
calf. I will be replacing my entire
set of dress socks with these
socks!”
Relief for Tired, Swollen Feet
BambusaTM socks are not a medical device or compression socks
because they don’t restrict blood
flow. Utilizing the special negativeanion technology, they comfortably
increase blood flow and oxygen to
tissues. “My feet felt wonderful,
cool, and I never got that pins and
needles feeling anymore. I love my
BambusaTM socks,” says Nancy,
from NJ.
They are ideal for diabetics and
those suffering from neuropathy or
injury from repetitive use. BambusaTM socks can also bring comfort to tired legs within minutes of
putting them on, energizing individuals who spend long hours on
their feet.
Goodbye to Pain and Numbness
Marilyn H. has suffered persistent foot problems for years and noticed fast results. “The issue for me
was persistent numbness in my
toes - it was gone completely after
a few days of wearing these socks!
Being diabetic, I never had painfree feet - UNTIL NOW!”

“I went out on the golf course
for 18 holes of golf, and when I got
home my feet weren’t swollen,
they weren’t sweating and my feet
didn’t hurt,” says Lou B. from New
York.
BENEFITS:
• Increased blood flow and
oxygen
• Reduced swelling and pain
• Anti-microbial
• Wicks away moisture
• Increased range of motion
IDEAL FOR:
• Neuropathy
• Raynaud's Syndrome
• Cramping
• Cold Feet
Tom from NJ reports, “I suffer
from chronic foot cramps. My feet
were sore for days after the cramping. My wife gave me the BambusaTM socks, I wore them, and the
foot cramps stopped. I replaced all
my socks with BambusaTM. My
feet feel great now.”

The more things change …
JIM METCALFE

Metcalfe’s
Musings

Hoyer, Manziel set to
battle for Browns’ QB job
Associated Press

By JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
I just hate when I am right.
Actually, not really, but I have to be humble about this.
I refer to my column a few weeks back regarding
the pressure being put to bear on Washington Redskins’
owner Daniel Snyder to change to name of his NFL team
to — whatever.
Now, the Atlanta Braves apparently are in the hot seat
about their nickname/mascot.
What did I tell you?
Braves seems to me to be a badge of honor; to be brave
in the face of adversity is a trait we ALL wish we could
exhibit when the going gets tough.
That is the essence of sports — it’s not all peaches
and cream, folks. Things don’t always go our way — in
sports or real life! — and sometimes you have to fight
through it.
See MUSINGS, page 7

www.delphosherald.com

BEREA — It’s time for football,
Johnny.
After months of having his off-field
behavior analyzed, scrutinized and criticized, Johnny Manziel will again be the
center of attention.
This time, though, it won’t be for
swigging champagne on an inflatable
swan but during his first NFL training
camp as he and Brian Hoyer battle for
the Browns’ starting quarterback job.
The Hoyer-Manziel showdown will
dominate camp until someone is named
the winner and that decision from firstyear coach Mike Pettine will not come
until the third exhibition game (Aug.
23).
Manziel earned his “Johnny Football”
nickname during a stellar career at
Texas A&M, where his daring, dazzling
scrambles and improvisational skills
made him a college star. It’s probably
not going to be nearly as easy for him
at this level.
The Browns drafted Manziel in the
first round, selecting him to hopefully
end a decade-plus problem at the game’s
most vital position. It may be only a

matter of time before Manziel unseats
Hoyer, a career backup who started three
games last season before tearing his
right knee ligament.
Hoyer enters camp with a slight lead
in the starter’s competition. It’s up to
him to keep it.
A lifelong Browns’ fan, Hoyer, who
has full medical clearance,
is determined to hold off
Manziel. The pressure will
be immense as every pass,
incompletion, interception
and touchdown will be
viewed and examined by
media members and thousands of fans, who had to register online
just to be able to watch practices this
summer.
Cleveland fans appear divided over
Hoyer — the hometown hero — and
Manziel, the fun-loving curiosity.
The Browns, too, will feel some heat
— from fans, TV networks, advertisers
— to push Manziel along.
Let the duel begin.
Here are some other things to watch
as the Browns, who haven’t won more
than five games since 2007, open a
highly-anticipated camp:

GORDON GONE?: Pro Bowl wide
receiver Josh Gordon’s clouded situation has cast a cloud over the Browns’
hopes. Gordon, who led the league in
yards receiving last season, may be
facing an indefinite ban for violating
the NFL’s substance-abuse policy again.
The 23-year-old hasn’t helped his cause
with two recent arrests —
one for alleged DUI in North
Carolina. If Gordon is done
for the season, the Browns
may have to drastically alter
their offensive scheme and
find some playmakers. Their
receiving group is thin.
PETTINE’S PATIENCE: The team’s
third coach in three years, Pettine, who
spent last season as Buffalo’s defensive coordinator, is doing all he can to
change Cleveland’s culture. Pettine has
come across as pragmatic, insightful and
passionate. Players seem to be buying
in but until the Browns start winning
games, all the positive talk is just talk.
One of Pettine’s early challenges will be
managing the hype around the HoyerManziel competition.
See NFL, page 7

Slumping Reds swept by Brewers Tony Stewart initially
MILWAUKEE — After another tough loss
for the Reds, Cincinnati manager Bryan Price
still believes in his team.
Mark Reynolds homered twice to help the
Milwaukee Brewers sweep the 3-game series
from the Reds with a 5-1 win on
Wednesday.
Kyle Lohse pitched 6 2/3 strong
innings to hand the Reds their a season-worst sixth straight loss since
the All-Star break.
“Anybody that watches our six
games on this road trip would understand that
we’re not playing as we were leading into the
break,” Price said. “We’re not scoring a lot
of runs. We’re not getting terribly efficient
starting pitching. We know that we’re a better
club than we’ve represented here in the last
six games.”
The then-surging Reds trailed the NL
Central-leading Brewers by 1 1/2 games
before the All-Star break but the loss dropped
them 5 1/2 games behind.
“I think that our guys are capable of turn-

ing it around,” Price said. “We’re definitely
going to start to pitch better and definitely are
more than capable of scoring enough runs to
win games.”
Cincinnati have scored 12 runs during the
losing streak.
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke
knows the Brewers had a better chance
of winning without two key Reds in
the lineup.
The Reds are missing Joey Votto
(left knee) and Brandon Phillips (left
thumb), who are on the disabled list.
“There’s still some guys in their lineup we
have to worry about but when you take out
the two guys, those guys do a lot of damage
against us,” Roenicke said.
Reds starter Mike Leake allowed 11 hits in
six innings as the Reds lost a season-high nine
road games.
Reynolds connected on a 1-1 pitch from
Leake (7-9) for his 15th home run of the season. Rickie Weeks was on with a double to
start the sixth.

opposed stock cars at Indy
Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS

Drivers always say there’s
something magical about
Indianapolis Motor Speedway
and the opportunity for
NASCAR to race there
opened the door for one of
Jeff Gordon’s most treasured
victories.
It was a race Tony Stewart
initially opposed.
Stewart, a die-hard openwheel driver at the time of
the inaugural Brickyard 400 in
1994, was one of the many IMS
loyalists who firmly believed
NASCAR did not belong on
the hallowed grounds of the
speedway. The Indiana native
had grown up dreaming of
one day winning the Indy 500.
Until 1994, it was the only big
race.
“I was one of them that
absolutely thought it was a
crime,” Stewart recalled. “I’m

a purist. I’m old school. It’s
always been sacred ground to
me.”
He wasn’t in Indy when
NASCAR made his debut and
had to watch the race later on
a replay.
Stewart’s mind was instantly changed.
“There were other people
that I knew that were dead
against it that went just to see
what it was going to be like
and they came back and felt
the same way,” he said. “I
think everybody changed their
mind and their opinion after
they saw that first one.”
The 20th anniversary of
NASCAR’s first race at Indy
is Sunday, when Gordon will
go for his fifth Brickyard win.
A California native, Gordon
moved to Indiana before high
school to race around the
Midwest. Like Stewart, he was
enamored with Indy but his
path into NASCAR made him

believe he’d never get a shot
to race at the speedway, which
has been home to the Indy 500
since 1911.
Then the speedway opened
its gates to NASCAR and a
23-year-old Gordon won the
inaugural event. It was only
his second career victory but
remains one of the biggest in
a career of 89 wins and four
championships.
“My love for Indianapolis
and the Indianapolis 500 goes
way back to when I was racing
in California and I was racing
open wheel cars on an oval,”
he explained. “Sprint cars were
what I looked up to and what
I loved to watch as a kid. The
drivers were my heroes. The
(Indy 500) was one that I always
put on the calendar that I was
going to watch. I always wanted
to race there and to get that
opportunity, especially an opportunity to win, it just is a way to
live out a childhood dream.”

HOYLAKE, England — The end of the
British Open means the Ryder Cup is getting
closer and there are a couple of regulars still not
in the team.
That starts with Phil Mickelson and Tiger
Woods.
They both have two tournaments remaining before qualifying ends at the PGA
Championship. The top nine earn automatic
spots on the U.S. team that goes to Scotland at
the end of September to try to win back the cup.
Tom Watson has three captain’s picks.
Woods will have to rely on a captain’s pick
unless he finishes at least third at the Bridgestone
Invitational and PGA Championship. Mickelson
has more realistic chance. He is the equivalent
of $198,056 in earnings behind Zach Johnson in
the No. 9 spot and money counts double at the
PGA Championship.
The Open went a long way toward sewing
up a few spots on the team. Rickie Fowler, a
runner-up at Hoylake, moved up to No. 3 and
locked up a spot. Jim Furyk, who closed with a
65 to finish alone in fourth, moved up to No. 4
and can expect to be at Gleneagles. Right behind
him is Dustin Johnson, with Jordan Spieth and
Matt Kuchar trailing. The top seven look pretty
solid barring some really bad play, or the right
combination behind them winning.
Where it gets tight is at the bottom. Only
$430,275 separates Jason Dufner at No. 8 from

Fill-in Swarzak pitches Twins past Indians

Delphos Minor League cochamps/Tourney runners-up
The Pirates were the Delphos Minor League regular-season co-champions
and Minor League Tournament runners-up. Members of the team are, front
from left, Tanner Jones, Kevin Pohlman, bat boy Maddox Kroeger, Avery
Schulte, Danny Schleeter, Lucas Grothaus and Braylon Scalf; and back,
Assistant Coach Scott Scalf, Gavin Holdgreve, Eli Coil, Head Coach Randy
Holdgreve, Mason Rowe, Jason Gillespie and Assistant Coach Josh Gillespie.
(DHI Media/Amy Holdgreve).

MINNEAPOLIS — Anthony Swarzak, for
an afternoon at least, was a starter again.
He pitched like he didn’t want to go back
to the bullpen. The rest of the Minnesota
relievers picked him up with a strong performance in his honor.
Swarzak pitched five sharp innings in
a short-notice start, Oswaldo Arcia homered and the Twins beat the Cleveland
Indians 3-1 Wednesday.
“I missed that. That was fun,”
Swarzak said.
Danny Santana scored after two of
his three hits for the Twins and five
relief pitchers totaled six strikeouts over
four scoreless innings. Glen Perkins
finished up in the ninth for his 24th save
in 27 tries.
When Kyle Gibson developed a sore back
the day before, Swarzak (2-0) was summoned
from the bullpen to fill in. He threw 75 pitches, 15 over the limit the Twins had in mind,
but the right-hander allowed just two hits and
one walk while striking out three. He was
only in trouble once. The Twins were worried
about his stamina but he still hit 93 mph on
the radar in the fifth.
“When you’re in as good a shape as him
and the hard work that he does in that training room and everywhere else in running and
throwing, he can handle those things,” man-

Timberwolves weighing options with Love
Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — The summer of
LeBron has quickly turned into the summer of Love. When it ends is anybody’s
guess.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are
weighing their options when it comes
to trading All-Star Kevin Love, with the
Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls
both trying to land the versatile forward.
But any talks are complicated by a league
rule that requires a 30-day waiting period
to trade any rookie that signs his contract.
Talks have picked up again this week,
with the Cavaliers coming off of their longheld resistance to including No. 1 overall
draft Andrew Wiggins in an offer and making a trade with Utah on Tuesday to help
make an acquisition easier to pull off.
Just as the Cavs appeared to be closing
in on grabbing Love to pair with LeBron
James and Kyrie Irving in a new-look
“Big 3” in Cleveland, the Bulls appear to
be making one last run to try to wrestle
him away from their Eastern Conference
competitors.
The Bulls reached out to the
Timberwolves again on Wednesday,
according to a person with knowledge of
the discussions who requested anonymity
because the teams were not publicly commenting on the process. But it remained
unclear just how far they are willing to go
to try to turn Minnesota’s attention away
from Cleveland.
The Timberwolves were big fans of
Bulls rookie Doug McDermott in the predraft process but he landed in Chicago
on a draft-night deal with Denver.
McDermott shined at the Las Vegas
Summer League, showing a versatile and
NBA-ready offensive game, and after
missing out on Carmelo Anthony in free
agency, the Bulls could be willing to use
McDermott as a headliner in a package to
keep Love from going to Cleveland.
The proposals from Cleveland and
Chicago carry with them the same obstacle. McDermott signed his contract on
Tuesday and Wiggins was expected to
sign his contract later this week. That
means no potential deal involving either
of those two players could be officially
executed for 30 days after the signing.

That’s a lifetime in the NBA.
Teams could agree in principle to
trades before the period ends but waiting
around for the deadline to pass and for
the ink to dry figures to be tense. Thirty
days gives everyone involved in the deal
a lot of time to think and other teams to
see the agreement and make renewed
pushes for Love, one of the best power
forwards in the game.
The Timberwolves have already made
it clear that that the only way the Cavs
get Love, who is scheduled to report for
Team USA training camp in Las
Vegas next week, is if they include
Wiggins in the deal. A package
with Wiggins, former No. 1 pick
Anthony Bennett and a future
first-round draft pick would likely
force Wolves’ president and coach
Flip Saunders to endure a more
drastic rebuild than he initially
had hoped for when trading the
face of his franchise.
The Wolves are also considering
involving a third team in the deal to both
unload contacts like J.J. Barea and Kevin
Martin and bring another veteran in at
power forward to help fill Love’s sizable
shoes.
There are also financial implications
to consider. Until Wiggins is officially
under contract, he holds no monetary
value in any deal and the Cavs must clear
salary in order to take on Love’s contract.
Wiggins’ contract will be worth $5.5
million next season, which gets the Cavs
much further down the road to matching
Love’s salary.
The longer the trade takes to get
finalized, the greater the risk it could
fall apart. The Timberwolves are already
leery of parting with their franchise player and anything that drags negotiations
out could hinder Cleveland’s chances of
landing Love.

He said it was “very humbling” to
know he was an inspiration for fans in the
former British colony.
“I’m miles and miles and miles, thousands
of miles away from home, and to know that

country, it means a lot me,” he said.
Later, he ran a clinic before 1,500 fans

Hornets add depth by signing
free agent PG Roberts
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The
Hornets announced they’ve signed
free agent point guard Brian Roberts.
Roberts, who spent the last two
seasons with the Pelicans, is expected to backup Kemba Walker in
Charlotte this season.
The 6-1 Roberts started 42 games
last season averaging 9.4 points, 3.3
assists and 1.9 rebounds in 23.2 minutes
per game. He shot 42 percent from the
field and 36 percent from 3-point range.
Prior to joining New Orleans, he spent
the 2008-09 season with Galil Gilboa in
Israel’s Winner League and then played
for Brose Baskets in Germany’s BBL
from 2009-12.
Mavs void deal for Lewis over knee
issue
DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks
have voided the contract of Rashard
Lewis because the free agent forward
needs surgery on his right knee.
President of basketball operations
Donnie Nelson announced Wednesday
the team discovered the need for surgery
during a physical. Lewis had signed a
1-year deal for the veteran minimum of
$1.4 million.
The 34-year-old Lewis spent the past
two seasons mostly coming off the bench
in Miami. He averaged 4.5 points last
season. He was expected to back up Dirk
Nowitzki at power forward.
Lewis has played 16 seasons since skipping college to enter the draft and going
32nd overall to Seattle in 1998. He has career
averages of 14.9 points and 5.2 rebounds.

RUNNING AMOK: Once they traded running back Trent
Richardson last season, the Browns’ running game shifted into
reverse. Cleveland tied for 27th overall in yards rushing, a sad
statistic for a franchise renowned for running backs such as
Hall-of-Famers Jim Brown and Leroy Kelly. New offensive
coordinator Kyle Shanahan learned the Xs and Os of a sound
running game from his father, Mike, who turned unknown
backs into Pro Bowlers in Denver. With a new zone-blocking
scheme and Pro Bowlers Joe Thomas and Alex Mack up front,
the Browns should open holes for Ben Tate (free agent) and
rookie Terrance West.
SACK ATTACK: Pettine wants an aggressive defense and
he’s identified DE Jabaal Sheard as a player who could make
a major impact this season. Sheard was moved to outside
linebacker last season; while he did an admirable job in coverage, he recorded just 5½ sacks, a career-low. The Browns
are expected to turn Sheard loose and Cleveland’s defensive
front needs more production from Paul Kruger (4½ sacks) and
Barkevious Mingo (five sacks). Sheard, too, is in the final year
of his contract.
PRIMARY TARGET: Gordon’s potential suspension could
make things much tougher on Pro Bowl TE Jordan Cameron,
who had a breakout season with 80 catches for 917 yards and
seven TDs last year. Cameron is in the final year of his contract and would like an extension but he’ll have a tough time

Holy oleo, Batman!

ager Ron Gardenhire said.
Swarzak has made 29 career starts dating
back to 2009 but this was his first since Oct.
2, 2012. Such a surprise assignment can be a
challenge for a pitcher, less than 14 hours after
finding out, but that can also work against an
opponent that hasn’t fully prepared to face him.
“Our hope would be to get the pitch counts
up, give him a couple long innings
and make them use their bullpen.
We couldn’t,” Indians manager Terry
Francona said.
Four of Swarzazk’s five innings
were perfect.
In the third, Jose Ramirez poked
a perfectly-placed double down the
third-base line to drive in a run.
Shortstop Eduardo Nunez made a
slick diving stab of Michael Brantley’s sharp
line drive up the middle, ending the inning
with runners at second and third.
How the Twins needed this performance
by Swarzak. They gave up 14 runs over the
first three innings combined during the first
five games of his homestand, losing four of
those. After a recent return to respectability,
the rotation has begun to backslide toward the
level of those rough last three seasons.
Trevor Bauer (4-5) struck out seven in six
innings but lost for the first time in five July
starts.

Bengals’ season comes down to winning in playoffs
CINCINNATI — Training camp will be interesting with a
few new faces trying to win starting spots. The regular season
will be a challenge with a much tougher schedule.
None of it will be remembered if the Bengals don’t do one
thing.
The whole season comes down to winning in the playoffs.
Anything less will be an immense disappointment, one that
will bring a call for change to an organization reluctant to do
it.
The Bengals have reached the playoffs each of the past
three seasons behind quarterback Andy Dalton, who had his
worst games under the postseason pressure. The Bengals
remain committed to Dalton and are negotiating a long-term
extension.
Dalton is one of only five NFL quarterbacks to lead his
team to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons as a
starter. It’s that 0-3 playoff mark that hangs over everything,
including training camp.
The Bengals haven’t won a playoff game since the 1990 season, which ties for the sixth-longest streak of postseason futility
in league history. Coach Marvin Lewis is 0-5 in the playoffs but
got a 1-year extension that runs through the 2015 season.

DEAR ABBY: Is it
acceptable to bring a
teacup-sized dog to a
wedding? The excuse
was, “Well, the wedding
was at the beach.” The
pre-dinner and dancing
were inside a high-end
resort on the beach. The
dog was taken inside
these establishments.
After a guest -- a
family member of the
dog’s owner -- asked
the owner to remove
the animal because the
occasion was not about
her and her dog but the
bride and groom’s day,
the owner put the dog
in a carrying case and
the dog returned to the

wedding for the rest of
the night. Only this one
couple made an issue
of it and they weren’t
in the wedding party,
but relations of the dog
owner. What do you
think? -- DOGGONE
DISGUSTED
DEAR DOGGONE
DISGUSTED: The rule
of etiquette states that
nothing should distract

attention from the happy
couple -- and especially
the bride -- at the
wedding. However, IF
the dog owner had first
asked for and received
permission to bring the
animal to the festivities,
then it wasn’t rude and
the relatives of the dog
owner were wrong to
intervene.

were recently at dinner
with longtime friends
whose political views
are
different
from
ours. I believe in the
rule of etiquette about
avoiding the topics of
politics and religion
in mixed company.
Well, somehow the
conversation
turned
political. Voices were
raised and I stood up and
ended it.
There are now many
hurt feelings with the
parties involved still
disagreeing about what
happened and how it
was handled. I know my
actions were extreme,
but things were out of
control and I was upset.
How do I deal with this
if we are invited to future
events? -- KEEPING
THE PEACE
DEAR KEEPING
THE PEACE: You
may
be
worrying
needlessly, because you

may not be invited to
future events -- at least
until the next election
is over. Whatever your
friends were arguing
about, while you had
a right to speak up
and say it was making
you
uncomfortable,
because your reaction
was “extreme,” you
may have been as rude
as the others. If you
caused hurt feelings
that
evening,
you
should apologize, if you
haven’t already.

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Blondie

Your keen interest in
helping others will come to the
forefront this year. You will
have to decide which among
many possibilities will be the
most effective and valuable.
By developing a friendship
with someone older, you will
gain knowledge, expertise and
profound perception.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Your goals and current lifestyle
need a little adjustment. Be
receptive to new ideas, and
make a change if you want to
feel better about the direction
you are heading in.

For Better or Worse

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22) -- Your leadership qualities
will help you gain control. You
will attract individuals who
want to support your plans.

House, Senate advance
competing border proposals

WASHINGTON
(AP)
— At an impasse on immigration, House Republicans
and Senate Democrats
advanced competing proposals Wednesday for dealing
with tens of thousands of
young migrants showing up
at the southern border. Each
side quickly ruled the other’s
approach unacceptable, leaving any solution unclear with
Congress’ annual August
recess looming.
Unless Democrats capitulate, “We’re going to be at
an impasse and we will have
earned even greater disdain
from the American people
than we already have,” Sen.
John McCain, R-Ariz., said.
But Republicans were
having difficulty agreeing
even among themselves.
At a morning meeting of
House Republicans, Speaker
John Boehner urged action
to address the border crisis,
reminding GOP lawmakers
that the Border Patrol and
other agencies would be running out of money in coming months because of the
heavy influx of unaccompanied minors and families at
the border.
A working group appointed
by Boehner rolled out proposals including sending in the
National Guard and changing
a 2008 trafficking victims law

to allow Central American kids
to be turned around quickly
at the border and sent back
home. Lawmakers announced
plans to chop President Barack
Obama’s $3.7 billion emergency spending request for the
border crisis down to $1.5 billion.
But as they left the meeting in the basement of the
Capitol, some of the more
conservative members of the
GOP caucus made clear they
were unconvinced.
“If Republicans move
forward on this, we’re now
jumping right in the middle
of President Obama’s nightmare and making it ours,”
said Rep. John Fleming, R-La.
Fleming said he worried that
any House-passed bill “will
be turned on its head” by the
Senate “and actually make the
problem even worse.”
Fleming said Boehner told
Republicans he was undecided about bringing the plan
to the floor because he didn’t
know whether there were
enough votes to pass it.
In his comments to reporters after the meeting, Boehner
was noncommittal.
“This discussion with our
members is going to continue, but we’ve not made any
decisions,” he said. “I’d like
to act. We’ve got a humanitarian crisis on the border that

(Continued from page 1)
“According to the meter reading obtained
on Aug. 7, our peak demand was 45.1, which
is a 30-minutes average,” he said. “The actual
demand could have spiked above that.”
The current transformer, fuse and secondary feed line are sized for 50 kva (kilowatt
amperes) and in theory, it should handle the
village’s expected load.
“Our rep is going to recommend that they
upgrade their service to 75 kva when they do
the rebuild along the canal, which should be
more than adequate to handle our expected
load,” he told council.
Prior to future Summerfest celebrations,
Chapman will request the estimated load in
watts from all vendors. He said it will help
determine what the estimated load will be
prior to the event.
The villages AEP representative also recommended balancing the electrical load in the
panels by avoiding connecting everything on
one side, making sure that the legs have equal
draw on them. This will put less strain on their
system as well.
Chapman said a former sales representative from Gateway Tank — the company that
built the village’s water tower — informed
him that the company is no longer in business.
“Normally, this would not be of much concern, except we have warranty work scheduled for our tower in 2015, after the WTP
goes online,” Chapman explained. “I have a
letter from Gateway Tank stating that there
will be no charge for this work since it is considered to be warranty work.”
Chapman plans on contacting a company
in Washington Courthouse that installs the
same brand of tanks and see if they can work

has to be dealt with.”
The path forward was not
much clearer in the Senate,
where
Appropriations
Committee
Chairwoman
Barbara Mikulski, D-Md.,
introduced legislation paring
Obama’s spending request
back to $2.7 billion for more
immigration judges, detention facilities and other
resources.
“We cannot turn our backs
on these children,” Mikulski
said on the Senate floor.
But Mikulski said she was
omitting from her legislation
any changes to the 2008 trafficking victims law, which
Republicans say has contributed to the crisis by allowing
Central American youths to
stay in this country indefinitely while awaiting far-off
court dates.
“We don’t want a backdoor version of bad immigration reform,” Mikulski said.
“This bill is only a money
bill. It does not include immigration legislation.”
Republicans continued to
demand changes to the 2008
law as the price for approving
any money for the crisis, and
Republican senators made
clear they would not lend
their votes without those provisions. “A fundamental of
any agreement is the repeal of
the 2008 law,” McCain said.

with the manufacturer on honoring Gateway’s
guarantee to perform the work at no cost to
the village.
Council members suspended the rules and
passed on emergency measure a resolution
authorizing Mayor P. J. Johnson to advertise
for bids, open bids and enter into contract for
the OPWC 2014 Street Program. They also
accepted last month’s financials by approving
paying the village’s bills in the sum of $7,039.
Chapman said his office has begun preliminary work on the 2014 Street Program,
which is being partially funded through the
Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC).
“We received a grant in the amount of
$78,000 from the OWPC towards this program that is estimated at $112,000,” he
explained. “We are responsible for the match
and all of the engineering for the project.”
Johnson said he, St. Marys’ and New
Bremen’s mayors have discussed a joint meeting to discuss how to clean up the Canal
Corridor north of St. Marys to Delphos. No
date has been set.
Council members discussed Summerfest
and the potential solutions to traffic and safety
issues brought to the forefront by Police Chief
Darin Cook.
“I’m looking at it from a safety perspective,” Cook said. “Semis re-routed through
town on Canal Street during the celebration is
a big concern.”
Chapman said getting the Ohio Department
of Transportation will not work since it is not
a construction project and they do not recognize festivals. He thought the village could
come up with another route from a Safety and
Streets Committee perspective.
The next council meeting will be held at
7 p.m. on Aug. 4 at the Municipal Building.

US pushes for truce as Gaza battle rages
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The
United States announced signs of progress
in cease-fire talks Wednesday, but prospects
for a quick end to the fighting were dim as
Palestinian families fled fierce battles in
southern Gaza and the death toll rose to more
than 700 Palestinians and 34 Israelis.
Underscoring the challenges facing international negotiators shuttling around the
Middle East in a high-profile bid to end the
bloodshed, the leader of Hamas insisted the
Islamic militants would not relent until their
main demand of lifting an Egyptian-Israeli
blockade of the Gaza Strip is met.
On the ground, meanwhile, Israeli troops
backed by tanks and aerial drones clashed
with Hamas fighters armed with rocketpropelled grenades and assault rifles on the
outskirts of Khan Younis, killing at least
eight militants, according to a Palestinian
health official. Hundreds of people fled their
homes as the battle unfolded, flooding into
the streets with what few belongings they
could carry, many with children in tow. They
said they were seeking shelter in nearby
U.N. schools.
“The airplanes and airstrikes are all around
us,” said Aziza Msabah, a resident of the city
in the southern Gaza Strip. “They are hitting
the houses, which are collapsing upon us.”
