Marbletown Festival sees great participation in events


BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com
MARBLETOWN Young and old flocked to Garfield
Park for the 9th annual Marbletown Festival Saturday.
It was a day of filled rosters for many events with 50
runners in the Run for the Marbles 5K, more than 65 children in the Frog Jumping Contest and nearly a dozen golf
carts in the poker run.
It didnt seem as busy as other years but we had more
people in the events, Committee Chair Kathy Gengler
said Saturday afternoon. I guess it just went smoothly so
it didnt seem like as much work.
The Parade Grand Marshal was Doug Harter, whose
grandfather, Paul Harter Sr., purchased the land that is
now the park from Delphos City Schools for $1. He razed
the old school house and carved out the park.
Raffle winners were: Stacy Cooley, cooler: Aleigha
Schabbing, movie basket and pool floatie; Natalie Diem,
spa basket; Sabrina Lehmkuhle, Cabos gift certificate;
and Kendra Norbeck, 31 casserole tote. Mike Grimes was
the 50-50 winner of $331.50.
The proceeds from this years event will be put in the
coffers for projects at Garfield Park. The committee is hoping to eventually raise enough money to install restrooms at
the park. Past projects have included sidewalks, a shelterhouse, grill, drinking fountain, memorial rock to Garfield
School, a new flag pole and flat, several trees and collaborated with the Kiwanis Club of Delphos for playground and
basketball court projects and landscaping.
A festival close-out meeting will be held in the coming
months to go over financials and announce this years total.
Plans are already being discussed for the festivals 10th Participants in the annual Marbletown Festival Frog Jumping Contest blow on their frogs and pound the

State turning highway


median into bee habitat
COLUMBUS (AP) A
state agency is turning a highway median in southern Ohio
into a honeybee paradise in
an effort to create habitats for
a bee population that has been
declining in recent years.
The Ohio Department of
Transportation planted wildflower seeds in two, 1-acre
lots along Ohio 207 in Ross
County in June to start a threeyear process creating habitats
for bees and other pollinators.
The flowers are intended
to provide much-needed food
for Ohio honeybees while
also beautifying the road, The
Columbus Dispatch reported.
The seeds, which are
beginning to germinate, are
a mix of native Ohio wildflowers and were planted as
a combined mix so that they
will grow successively, said
Kathleen Fuller, ODOTs
District 9 spokeswoman.
Bee populations have been
dropping in recent years, as
trends in agriculture affect
their food supply, said
Reed Johnson, an entomology professor at Ohio State
University. Theres been a
shift in agriculture toward
corn, and corn doesnt really
do anything for pollinators.
Increasing numbers of diseases and pests in recent years
also have thinned colonies and
threatened the agriculture industry. Between 50 and 80 percent

of bees kept by registered Ohio


beekeepers died over the past
winter, the newspaper reported.
Last year, Ohio had 4,390
registered beekeepers tending
an estimated 37,000 colonies
at 7,199 apiaries.
Ohio farmers rely on bees to
pollinate more than 70 crops,
including apples, strawberries and pumpkins. The U.S.
Department of Agriculture
says honeybees nationwide
pollinate more than $14 billion in crops each year.
Pollinator habitats such as
those in Ross County can help
boost bee population and honey
harvests, which also have seen
decreases, Johnson said.
Bees depend on flowers.
They only eat nectar and pollen,
and the only place to get nectar
and pollen is from flowers.
Other states around the
country facing declining bee
populations also have started
developing pollinator habitats
along roadsides and in other
places, and other parts of Ohio
are taking note of the project.
An ODOT district that
includes Columbus and
Franklin County and one
that includes Cincinnati and
Hamilton County already
are choosing planting sites,
Fuller said.
People are excited about
doing this, ODOT engineer
Dianne Kahal-Berman said.
They want to be a part of it.

W. Indiana chocolatier part of Grammy gift bags


TERRE HAUTE, Ind.
(AP) Superstar music
celebs such as Katy Perry,
Pharrell Williams and Lorde
may soon be munching on
candy made in a quaint corner of the Wabash Valley.
Brookes Candy Co., a
Vermillion County business
operated out of a centuryold home in Dana, Ind., was
selected as one of dozens of
companies to provide gifts
to musical artists and the
media at the 2015 Grammy
Awards, the Tribune-Star
reported.
The Grammys will be
Feb. 8 in Los Angeles.
Brookes Candy Co. will
also provide candy for the
stars at the Latin Grammys,
set for Nov. 20 of this year in
Las Vegas.
Theyre looking for stuff
the stars have never had,
said Brooke Schmidt, president of the candy company,
where she and one employee
make every toffee, turtle and
piece of fudge by hand.
The best-known product

Brooke makes is chocolatecovered almond toffee, which


is what the stars will find in
their gift bags. Each 2-ounce
piece, sprinkled with roasted
almonds, will be placed in
an elegant gift box bearing
the Brookes Candy logo and
just as a bonus information about PINK of Terre
Haute, a group that raises
money for people affected by
breast cancer.
Brookes Candy will be
sending 120 boxes to the
Latin Grammys and 150
boxes to the 2015 Grammy
Awards. Brookes did not
seek this honor, but rather a
company that selects the gifts
for the Grammys asked the
Dana-based business to send
in a sample. They loved it,
Schmidt said.
It would be hard to find a
smaller company involved in
Musics Biggest Night, as
the Grammys are called.

a Mayberry-esque town of
about 600. Most of the house,
which is where Brooke grew
up, is still used as living
space by her parents, Donna
and Kent Thompson. Only
one small room in the front
of the house serves as a retail
shop for the business. The
candy is made in a kitchen in
the back of the house.
Asked which stars she
hopes enjoy her almond toffee, Schmidt admitted shes
not really up on the current
music scene. Mainly, shes
just happy to have a chance
to spread the word about her
product, she said. The candy
is provided free in exchange
for the publicity, Schmidt
said.
Brookes Candy is made
from all-natural ingredients
and is certified gluten-free.
Schmidt and her sister, Dana
Vicars, and their mom spent
many hours studying and
trying different chocolates
from around the world before
deciding, in 2004, to use a
special kind of Belgian chocolate in their candy. Their
toffee is also unique in some
of its ingredients, including
almond. It is also crunchy
instead of gooey, Schmidt
said.
We knew we had to do
something different, she
said.
Brookes Candy is available at a few locations outside the retail shop in Dana.
Baeslers Market in Terre
Haute, for example, sells the
chocolate-covered almond
toffee and several of the
Brookes gluten-free baking mixes, including banana
bread, carrot cake, chocolate
chip cookie and brownie mix.
Because each piece of

candy is currently made by


hand, Schmidt has had to
turn down some large orders.
Soon, however, the company will be expanding into a
new factory, a long building placed next door to the
old home, where an enrober
machine (think Lucy and
Ethel on I Love Lucy) will
allow production to increase
dramatically. Brookes currently uses a small, countertop 2-gallon pot to mix
chocolate. The new factory
features a kettle that, with
a 30-pound capacity alongside the enrober, will automatically apply toppings to
individual toffee pieces and
otherwise help in the production process.
Im excited about the
new equipment, Schmidt said.
It will allow her business to
finally grow. She also plans
to relocate the tiny retail shop
to the new building, which
was once part of the former
Newport U.S. Army chemical weapons depot and was
moved to Dana. The building seems brand new and Schmidt adds, smiling - was
never used to store VX nerve
agent.
Brookes Candy Co.
sells a wide variety of treats
including fudge, toffee, truffles, mints, turtles, sea salt
caramels and other sweets.
But the old standby is the toffee, Schmidt said. That was
her first product, and its still
the most popular item.
Its always the toffee
that everyone goes back to,
Schmidt said. Soon, some
of the music industrys biggest stars may join the list of
folks who think Dana, Ind.,
is home to some of the best
candy around.

LOS ANGELES (AP) Teenage Mutant Ninja


Turtles sliced off $65 million at the weekend box
office.
Paramount Pictures comic-book adaptation featuring
Megan Fox alongside computer-generated renditions of
the pizza-eating, sewer-dwelling superheroes lunged
into first place in its debut weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. The action films totally tubular
result prompted the studio to announce plans Sunday for
a sequel set for June 3, 2016.
Megan Colligan, Paramounts head of domestic marketing and distribution, said the success of the Ninja
Turtles reboot was mostly derived from a pair of
distinctly different audiences: men who fondly remembered the 1980s and 90s franchise that spawned a cartoon series, toy line and a live-action film trilogy, and
youngsters familiar with a newer Nickelodeon animated
TV series.
Its odd when you have 25- to 35-year-olds and then
7- to 12-year-olds really excited about the same film,
Colligan said. The teen audience was actually the one
that wasnt as familiar with the property, so we put a lot
of focus on teens. I think we did a great job of getting
them out there to see the film, which is so fun, refreshing and unique.
Ninja Turtles, which also stars Will Arnett and
William Fichtner, made an additional $28.7 million in
international markets such as Russia, Mexico, Malaysia,
Singapore and Taiwan, bringing its worldwide total to a
radical $93.7 million.
Marvel Studios Guardians of the Galaxy slid into
second place in its second weekend with $41.5 million,
bringing its total domestic haul to $175.9 million. The
total worldwide box office for the cosmic romp starring
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista as members
of an intergalactic band of do-gooders stands at $313.2
million. Marvel and Guardians distributor Disney
revealed last month at San Diego Comic-Con that a
follow-up is planned for 2017.
Guardians and Ninja Turtles are coming to the
rescue of an otherwise shell-shocked summer box
office, which is still down more than 16 percent over a
year ago.
This is the third weekend in a row weve had a film
overperform, said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media
analyst with Rentrak. Its finally starting to feel like
summer. The perception of August used to be that it was
the month of the B-sides, not the hits. The movies are
now defining what August can be, not the month defining what the movies should be.
Lucy was another recent success. The mindbending Scarlett Johansson film came in fifth place this
weekend with $9.3 million in in its third outing.
Several newcomers debuted distantly behind the
heroes on the half-shell this weekend.
The Warner Bros. disaster film Into the Storm
touched down in third place with $18 million, while the
Disney culinary drama The Hundred-Foot Journey,
starring Helen Mirren, arrived in fourth place with $11.1
million. Universals dance sequel Step Up All In
popped up in sixth place with $6.5 million.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday


at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak.
Where available, latest international numbers are also
included. Final domestic figures will be released today.
1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, $65 million
($28.7 million international).
2. Guardians of the Galaxy, $41.5 million ($40.1

52ND ANNuAl

LIMA The Allen County Museum


will host What Ever Happended to Baby
VaLaire? at 2 p.m. Aug. 24.
The 1920s and 30s were the golden years
of theater and vaudeville. By 1932, at the age
of 6, VaLaire Rilee was already a known performer, having appeared on stages throughout
the United States and Canada since she was
14 months old. Now, this 6-year-old stage
star, Baby VaLaire, began dividing her time
between a school room and her life in show
business. It was the life she would know for
the next 11 years.
But, as the years went on, her life continued to be as exciting as a novel: falling in
love, getting married, raising children and
stumbling into what would become an exemplary broadcasting career spanning nearly four
decades. Beneath it all, she was grounded in
her faith and devotion to community service.
The Allen County Historical Society is
pleased to present VaLaire Rilee Orchard in
a retrospective look at show business, broadcasting and life in Allen County. VaLaire was
married to the late Art Orchard for 67 years
and the couple had two children, three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She
has been an American Red Cross volunteer
for 70 years, serves on the board of trustees
of the Allen County Historical Society and
is a member of the First Evangelical and
Reformed Church where she taught Sunday
School for 30 years.
In addition to her volunteer service, she
enjoys spending time with her family, as well

VaLaire Rilee Orchard


as time on the golf course.
If you remember Central High School,
early television, West Ohio Gas Companys
Blue Flame Theater and VaLaire as WIMAs
talk show host, you wont want to miss this
program.
This event is free and open to the public.

BEREA (AP) The


Cleveland Browns quarterback derby is heading down
the homestretch.
Coach Mike Pettine said
Sunday he plans to name his
starting quarterback shortly
after the teams Aug. 18 preseason game in Washington.
The winner of the competition between Brian Hoyer
and rookie Johnny Manziel
will start Clevelands third
preseason contest Aug. 23
at home against the Rams
and sit out its final game Aug.

I wouldnt say its 1,000

Pettine said. If we have a
starter that gets a lot of time
in that game, then has all the
practice time after that, we feel

opener (Sept. 7 in Pittsburgh).
Hoyer tops the Browns offi-

cial depth chart but will split firstteam snaps with 2012 Heisman

Pettine declined to say which

close to call.

Dancer goes back-to-back with NRA Sprints at Limaland


INFORMATION SUBMITTED

LIMA When youre hot youre hot.


Veteran sprint car racer Shawn Dancer is in
the midst of the finest streak of success in his
motorsports career and made it two wins in a
row with the NRA Sprint Invaders feature at
Limaland Motorsports Park.
Once more, he did it by leading the field
flag-to-flag through the 25-lap event.
Starting from the pole position was an
advantage for Dancer and he proceeded to
fully capitalize. The blue-colored #49 car
blasted to the cushion of the racing surface and rolled along, while the rest of
the field produced some classic sprint car
drama with the next handful of positions. The
Hammons team cars with J.R. Stewart and
Max Stambaugh as well as Kody Swanson
fought over who might ultimately provide a
challenge to Dancer.
At the race midpoint, Kody Swanson,
a 2014 part-time newcomer at the track,
decided to follow Dancer around the top side
line. Swanson stayed close to Dancer but in
the meantime J.R. Stewart was working to the
inside of Dancer and had effectively pulled
even. It was a stirring battle that also saw
Stambaugh and Dustin Stroup join the already
3-car mix near the front of the field.
A pair of late race restarts made for even
more drama but may have slowed the momentum of the group of challengers to Dancer. He
stayed strong with his machine on the high
side of the track and made it stick during a
three-lap dash to the checkered flag. NRA
points leader Stewart and Swanson followed
him across the finish line.
This one wore me out a little bit, said a
relieved Dancer. I saw J.R. underneath me
and on the last restart I was thinking about
going to the bottom but I had good momentum and was doing well so I just stayed there
and ran it even harder. From four years of not
getting a win to back-to-back. Its awesome!
The Reineke Modified division has been
quite a playground for Indiana ace Todd
Sherman as he has captured the past four
season titles. He may well be on the way
to a record fifth consecutive championship,
especially after one of the most dominating performances in recent memory to win
going flag-to-flag with race leadership. It
was another 20-lap showdown that saw the
veteran Sherman disdain his usual preferred
bottom line racing and instead keep the #65
machine hard and fast at the top of the high-

everyone including my crew chief who actually couldnt be here tonight.


The visiting Compact cars saw Terry Eaton
Jr. overtake primary race leader Austin Eaton
to capture a 12-lap feature. A field of 13 cars
proved to be very competitive with a collection of about a half a dozen cars battling until
a lap number 11 restart separated the pack.
Limaland Motorsports Park returns to
action on Friday for the 17th annual Limaland
Season Points & NRA Championship. The
night will also feature the King of the QuarterMile races with an additional $6,000 in prize
money up for grabs. Gates open at 5 p.m. with
hot laps beginning at 6:30 p.m. Racing begins
promptly at 7:30 p.m.

banked -mile.
Sherman had virtually checked out on the
field with the exception of Jerry Bowersock,
while Brandon Vaughan, Casey Luedeke and
Matt Westfall engaged in some competitive
pack racing. Unfortunately for everyone but
Sherman it was for the consolation of a high finish but not a coveted checkered flag. Sherman
easily posted a fourth win of 2014 and a record
extending 40th of his career at the track.
The track was fast as they watered it just
before this race, said Sherman. My signal
guy (his son) said stay up high. It worked and
when I got into lapped traffic I just tried to
be careful. Next week with the King of the
Quarters is gonna be really something!
The most emotional racing of the evening proved to be the 15-lap Budweiser
Thunderstocks main event as it produced
a first-time feature winner. Limas Frank
Paladino gave himself a night to remember with a hard-earned triumph. It left the
usual large crowd of race fans roaring their
approval. Although Paladino was afforded the
pole starting position after the heat racing and
inversion, the race itself left everyone on the
edge of their seats.
Points leader Tony Anderson led the open-

ing three laps until Paladino moved to the


front of the field with a pass coming off of
turn number two. 2014 four-time winner Jeff
Koz was coming hard and seemed likely to
take control of the race as he has done many
times previous in recent seasons. On this
night, it was not to be as Paladino held the
lead through the halfway mark; similar to the
sprints and modifieds, it became comfortable
racing up against outside wall.
A restart with six laps remaining allowed
ample time for Koz, Anderson and Shawn
Valenti to make their case and possibly
overtake Paladino. Koz was rolling hard in
the middle of the track and Valenti became
hitched to Paladinos tail at the top. It was a
double threat for Paladino but one he proved
capable of contending with and eventually
mastering. With the crowd sensing that they
might be witnessing a first-time winner for
the second week in a row, Paladino did his
part by maintaining composure and hanging
on for the popular result.
Eight seasons and finally after going hard
all of this time, I got one! said Paladino during a rowdy on-track celebration. I have a
lot of training following these guys and it was
time to let them follow me. I have to thank

history to hit three slams in one season


the first since Chris Sabo in 1993.
The fifth-inning outburst gave Cueto
(14-6) some breathing room. In eight
innings, he allowed five hits two homers with two walks and nine strikeouts.
He improved to 6-0 in his last seven starts.
Hand (2-4) allowed five hits and seven
runs with three walks all in the
fifth and two strikeouts.
Giancarlo Stanton, the NLs
home run and RBIs leader, lined his 29th homer
with two outs in the first
for a 1-0 Miami lead.
Right-fielder Jay Bruce made a
leaping catch in the eighth to rob
Stanton of a second homer.
Mesoraco gave the Reds a 2-1
lead in the first with his first
homer in 10 games since July 30, a 390foot blast that bounced off the roof of
the Cincinnati bullpen in left-center with
Bruce on first and two outs.
Casey McGehee tied the game with
his third homer of the year, a 383-foot
shot to left with one out in the fourth.

INDIANS 4, YANKEES 1
NEW YORK Carlos Carrasco
rejoined the Cleveland rotation in fine fashion by throwing five scoreless innings and
the Indians nearly tossed another shutout at
Yankee Stadium in a 4-1 win Sunday.
Jacoby Ellsbury homered with two
outs in the ninth off Indians closer Cody
Allen, ending New Yorks season-worst
scoreless streak at 19 innings.
Jason Kipnis got three hits and scored
three runs as the Indians finished
4-3 against their fellow AL wildcard contender only twice in the
last 22 years has Cleveland taken
the season matchup.
A day after Cleveland pitchers
combined on a 5-hit shutout and
struck out 15 Yankees, Carrasco
(4-4) and four relievers dominated
with another 5-hitter.
Carrasco allowed just two singles,
walked none, struck out four and retired
his last 11 batters. Pitching in place of
the recently demoted Danny Salazar,
Carrasco made his first start since being
banished to the bullpen in late April.

DEAR ABBY: It
disturbs me greatly that
we keep reading about
parents leaving their
children in cars, whether
it be absentmindedness,
stress or downright
intentional. It needs to
stop.
Im
hoping
car
manufacturers can come
up with an idea -- maybe
a sensor that once the
doors are closed and
locked, should there be
motion or a sound in the
vehicle, the windows
would

DEAR ABBY: I am

for three years. I have
worked with the wife
since
before
their
wedding. The wife is
overtly sexual toward
me and has cheated on
her husband with many
men during the last year.
Ill be changing

husband should know

doing. Should I send
him an anonymous
letter? Tell him in
person? Or let him find
out for himself in the
future? -- TROUBLED

TROUBLED: Because
the woman is overtly

already has an inkling.
Whether you decide
to tell him his wife is
cheating with multiple
men depends on whether
YOU would want to
be told. But this I can
tell you emphatically:
This information should
not be conveyed in an
unsigned letter from a
