DELPHOS — The Delphos Public Library
will be home to a 3D printer in February. Director
Kelly Rist learned of the printer’s availability at a
Nordwell meeting in Perrysburg in June.
“This printer will be well-received,” Rist said.
“I’m going to talk to the schools and see if their
STEM classes would like to come in to use it and
the general public will really be interested, as well.”
According to 3Dprinting.com, 3D printing is a

process of making three-dimensional solid objects
from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed
object is achieved using additive processes where
an object is created by laying down successive
layers of material until the entire object is created.
Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly-sliced
horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.
It all starts with making a virtual design of the
object you want to create. This virtual design is
made in a CAD (Computer Aided Design) file
using a 3D modeling program (for the creation of a
totally new object) ór with the use of a 3D scanner
(to copy an existing object). This scanner makes a

3D digital copy of an object and puts it into a 3D
modeling program.
To prepare the digital file created in a modeling
program for printing, the software slices the final
model into hundreds or thousands of horizontal
layers. When this prepared file is uploaded in the
printer, the printer creates the object layer by layer.
The printer reads every slice (or 2D image) and
proceeds to create the object blending each layer
together with no sign of the layering visible, resulting in one three dimensional object.

Youth learn tennis basics at camp
The first day of the 2014 Tennis Clinic sponsored by the Delphos Herald was held under threatening skies on Tuesday. Tennis Pro Jeff Brown and his assistants taught the basics of the
forehand and serving. On Wednesday, the second day of the clinic, the youngsters continued
to learn the basics and practice their new skills. The third and final session will begin at 10
a.m. today. The participants will learn more about tennis and they will demonstrate some of
what they learned. In addition, the coaches will compete in a brief match that will showcase
what can be achieved by those who continue to develop their tennis skills. (Photo courtesy

DELPHOS — James (Jim) A.
Lauer was born in Ottoville on Aug.
15, 1924, and grew up with nine
brothers and sisters.
As a kid, Lauer loved watching
his mother, father and their friends
play pinochle so much that at age
eight, he began playing with his
siblings.
“We played cards a lot,” Lauer
said. “I played softball, fished at the
park and swam in the quarry.
“I graduated from high school in
1942 and went to work in Delphos
at Graham Trailer as a mechanic.
I began working at The Delphos
Herald in 1943.”

INFORMATION SUBMITTED

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue
Service and the Treasury Inspector General
for Tax Administration continue to hear from
taxpayers who have received unsolicited calls
from individuals demanding payment while
fraudulently claiming to be from the IRS.
Based on the 90,000 complaints that TIGTA
has received through its telephone hotline, to
date, TIGTA has identified approximately
1,100 victims who have lost an estimated $5
million from these scams.
“There are clear warning signs about
these scams, which continue at high
levels throughout the nation,” said IRS
Commissioner John Koskinen. “Taxpayers
should remember their first contact with the
IRS will not be a call from out of the blue,
but through official correspondence sent
through the mail. A big red flag for these
scams are angry, threatening calls from
people who say they are from the IRS and
urging immediate payment. This is not how
we operate. People should hang up immediately and contact TIGTA or the IRS.”
Additionally, it is important for taxpayers
to know that the IRS:
• Never asks for credit card, debit card or
prepaid card information over the telephone.
• Never insists that taxpayers use a specific
payment method to pay tax obligations.
• Never requests immediate payment over
the telephone and will not take enforcement
action immediately following a phone conversation. Taxpayers usually receive prior notification of IRS enforcement action involving
IRS tax liens or levies.
Potential phone scam victims may be told
that they owe money that must be paid immediately to the IRS or they are entitled to big
refunds. When unsuccessful the first time,
sometimes phone scammers call back trying
a new strategy.
Other characteristics of these scams
include:
• Scammers use fake names and IRS badge
numbers. They generally use common names
and surnames to identify themselves.
• Scammers may be able to recite the last
four digits of a victim’s Social Security number.
• Scammers spoof the IRS toll-free number
on caller ID to make it appear that it’s the IRS
calling.

• Scammers sometimes send bogus IRS
emails to some victims to support their bogus
calls.
• Victims hear background noise of other
calls being conducted to mimic a call site.
• After threatening victims with jail time
or driver’s license revocation, scammers hang
up and others soon call back pretending to be
from the local police or DMV, and the caller
ID supports their claim.
If you get a phone call from someone
claiming to be from the IRS, here’s what you
should do:
• If you know you owe taxes or you
think you might owe taxes, call the IRS at
1.800.829.1040. The IRS employees at that
line can help you with a payment issue, if
there really is such an issue.
• If you know you don’t owe taxes or have
no reason to think that you owe any taxes (for
example, you’ve never received a bill or the
caller made some bogus threats as described
above), then call and report the incident to
TIGTA at 1.800.366.4484.
• If you’ve been targeted by this scam,
you should also contact the Federal Trade
Commission and use their “FTC Complaint
Assistant” at FTC.gov. Please add “IRS
Telephone Scam” to the comments of your
complaint.
Taxpayers should be aware that there
are other unrelated scams (such as a lottery
sweepstakes) and solicitations (such as debt
relief) that fraudulently claim to be from the
IRS.
The IRS encourages taxpayers to be vigilant against phone and email scams that
use the IRS as a lure. The IRS does not
initiate contact with taxpayers by email to
request personal or financial information.
This includes any type of electronic communication, such as text messages and social
media channels. The IRS also does not ask
for PINs, passwords or similar confidential
access information for credit card, bank or
other financial accounts. Recipients should
not open any attachments or click on any links
contained in the message. Instead, forward the
e-mail to phishing@irs.gov.
For more information or to report a scam,
go to www.irs.gov and type “scam” in the
search box.
More information on how to report phishing scams involving the IRS is available on
the genuine IRS website, IRS.gov.

Hearings set for proposed
YWCA fall swim lessons registration open Common Core repeal
INFORMATION SUBMITTED
VAN WERT — The YWCA of Van Wert County is now accepting registration for their fall
swim lesson session. The eight- week session begins Sept. 2 and runs through Oct. 27. Classes
are held Monday and Tuesday evenings. Call for specific class times.
The YWCA offers two basic youth swim programs: Preschool swim program and learn-toswim program. The preschool swim program works with children 3-5 years of age teaching
them the basic water propulsive skills, creating awareness of their aquatic environment and
working on gaining their greater aquatic independence. All preschool level classes have a maximum of six participants to ensure safe, quality one-on-one instruction.
The YWCA also offers a parent-child class for children 6 months old to 2 years of age which
requires an adult participant to work with the enrolled child in the pool under an instructor’s
supervision and leadership. These classes are 30 minutes long. Class fees are $42 for the eightweek session.
The learn-to-swim program begins at Level 1, helping participants feel comfortable in the
water and works up through Level 6, which refines strokes and teaches participants to swim
with ease, efficiency, power and smoothness over great distances. All upper level classes have
a maximum of eight children enrolled to ensure safe, quality one-on-one instruction. These
classes are 45 minutes long. Class fees are $56 for the eight-week session.
The YWCA is a United Way and Van Wert County Foundation funded agency.

Lawmaker says sentencing
law shields drug dealers
COLUMBUS (AP) — Candidates for Ohio attorney general
are backing alternate proposals for dealing with the state’s
heroin epidemic.
Democrat David Pepper on Wednesday urged passage of a
bill that would loosen state sentencing law to send more drug
dealers to prison.
The measure, sponsored by state Rep. Nick Barborak of
Lisbon, would remove a requirement that judges generally
must sentence non-violent, first-time offenders to probationlike sentences instead of prison time.
Pepper and Barborak said one result is drug dealers can sell 5
grams of heroin worth nearly $1,000, but face no chance of prison.
Pepper said passing the bill “will put sentencing decisions
where they belong: in the hands of local judges and prosecutors
who know the situation on the ground and are accountable to
their communities.”
Ohio’s prison population remains high despite the 2011 law
meant to reduce the number of people behind bars. Like many
states, Ohio has seen a surge in heroin use and a sharp rise in
overdose deaths.
Barborak, Pepper and the central Ohio chapter of the
Fraternal Order of Police called for passage of the bill, which
has bipartisan support and passed out of a House committee
earlier this year.
Judges and prosecutors have criticized the portion of the
bill eliminating prison time for many fourth- and fifth-degree
felonies, the lowest under Ohio criminal law.
On Tuesday, Republican incumbent Attorney General Mike
DeWine announced that a northwest Ohio county is getting a
$650,000 grant to help fund a pilot program for heroin addicts.
DeWine said the money will help a Lucas County program
create two new victim advocate and clinical positions to assist
addicts immediately after a heroin overdose. The grant also
will help with recovery housing for people who have gone
through treatment but need support to stay drug-free.
“Through this pilot program, local authorities will have resources to build on the groundwork they have already established to help
tear down existing barriers to recovery,” DeWine said.
Pepper has criticized DeWine for reacting slowly to the
heroin epidemic and not doing enough. DeWine has said the
problem is unprecedented and his office has launched a number of law enforcement and treatment programs to address it.

Corn
Specialist from the C.O.R.N.
newsletter (2014-25).
Have recent below average temperatures adversely
affected corn growth and
yield potential?
No, corn actually yields
best with moderate temperatures and adequate soil moisture. Temperatures that occur
in Ohio in July and August
(especially at night) are often
warmer than optimum for
corn. The ideal daytime temperatures for corn are about
80 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
With high night temperatures,
more of the sugars produced
by photosynthesis during the
day are lost; less is available to
fill developing kernels, thereby lowering potential grain
yield. Research conducted at
the University of the Illinois
indicated that corn grown at
night temperatures in the mid60s out-yielded corn grown at
temperatures in the mid-80s.
High night time temperatures result in faster heat
unit (GDD) accumulation
that can lead to earlier corn
maturation, whereas cool
night temperatures result in
slower GDD accumulation
that can lengthen grain filling
and promote greater dry matter accumulation and grain
yields. Cool temperatures
may also slow the development of foliar diseases and
insect problems. Low night
temperatures during grain fill
are associated with some of
our highest corn yields in
Ohio – 143, 158, and 174
bu/A in 1992, 2004 and 2009,
respectively. The “downside”
is that cooler temperatures
could delay grain harvest and
result in higher grain moisture. Growers may want to

yield and agronomic characteristics are available online,
no text yet. The purpose of
the Ohio Wheat Performance
Test is to evaluate wheat
varieties, blends, brands and
breeding lines for yield, grain
quality and other important
performance characteristics.
This information gives wheat
producers comparative information for selecting the varieties best suited for their production system and market.
Varieties differ in yield potential, winter hardiness, maturity, standability, disease and
insect resistance and other
agronomic characteristics.
Depending on variety and test
site, yields varied between
76.8 and 129.9 bushels per
acre, and test weight ranged
from 56.9 to 61.1 pounds per
bushel. Selection should be
based on performance from
multiple test sites and years.
The 2013-14 growing season had unusual weather but
good wheat yields. In fall
2013, wet field conditions
and later than usual soybean
harvest delayed wheat planting. Above average temperatures in October allowed for
excellent emergence and
early growth. The extended
warm temperatures promoted tillering and most fields
entered winter dormancy in
good to excellent condition.
In January and February,
many areas in Ohio experienced negative air temperatures with above average
snowfall. Wheat survival the
following spring was good
but cool spring temperatures
slowed wheat growth and
delayed green-up. May and
June temperatures were fairly
cool. Harvest was later than
normal due to delayed maturation and rainfall, and lodging was greater than usual.
High wheat grain yield was
partly due to the gradual
maturation of the crop resulting in an extended grain fill
period.

ASA reschedules Columbus
Succession Planning Workshop
INFORMATION SUBMITTED
ST. LOUIS, Mo. — ASA’s Succession Planning
Workshop in Columbus planned for the end of August
is now rescheduled for January 2015 to allow farmers to
focus on their fields during the busy end of summer.
“ASA knows summer can be a busy time for farmers and we want to make sure that all soybean producers have an opportunity to attend this workshop,” said
Bob Worth, ASA Membership and Corporate Relations
Committee Chairman. “We believe January will be a better time for farmers to attend the sessions.”
ASA is working with the Ohio and Michigan soybean
associations to set a new date and will notify all current
registered participants about new date. ASA will still
conduct its workshop scheduled for Fort Wayne, Ind., on
Aug. 21 at the Landmark Centre and encourages anyone
within the Fort Wayne region to register here.
“ASA apologizes for the inconvenience, but at each
of the Sioux Falls, Memphis and Paducah seminars, we
have heard such impactful comments from the attendees
of how important this topic is and how thankful they are
that ASA is putting these programs on. It is these types
of comments that make us realize how important this
subject is and how this is a great way to demonstrate the
value of membership in ASA and their state organization,” Worth said.
The Succession Planning Workshops are a partnership
with ASA and eLegacy Connect. The sessions are sponsored by Farm Credit, AGCO and the Illinois, Kentucky,
Michigan, Ohio and South Dakota Soybean Associations.

On Aug. 15, India will mark its 67th anniversary of independence from Britain. It may
seem strange to some that a nation would
publicly celebrate its independence while at
the same time it less publicly cedes it to outsiders. The gleaming façade of flags and flypasts will belie the fact that national security
and independence do not depend on military
might and patriotic speeches. Eye-catching
celebrations will take place in Delhi and much
of the media will mouth platitudes about the
strength of the nation and its independence.
The reality is, however, an ongoing, concerted
attempt to undermine and destroy the very
foundation and security of the country.
The bedrock of any society is its agriculture. Without food there can be no life.
Without food security, there can be no genuine independence. A recent report by the organization GRAIN revealed that small farms
produce most of the world’s food and are
more productively efficient than large farms.
Facilitated by an appropriate policy framework, small farmers could easily feed the
global population. But small farmers are currently squeezed onto less than a quarter of the
world’s farmland and the world is fast losing
farms and farmers through the concentration
of land into the hands of big agribusiness
and the rich and powerful. If nothing is done
to reverse this trend, the world will lose its
capacity to feed itself.
By definition, peasant agriculture prioritises food production for local and national
markets as well as for farmers’ own families. Corporations take over scarce fertile
land and prioritize non-food commodities or
export crops for profit and markets far away
that cater for the needs of the affluent. This
process impoverishes local communities and
brings about food insecurity. GRAIN concludes that the concentration of fertile agricultural land in fewer and fewer hands is directly
related to the increasing number of people
going hungry every day.
The Oakland Institute in the US recently
stated that the first years of the 21st century
will be remembered for a global land rush of
nearly unprecedented scale. An estimated 500
million acres, an area eight times the size of
Britain, was reported bought or leased across
the developing world between 2000 and 2011,
often at the expense of local food security and
land rights. This trend could eventually result
in the permanent shift of farm ownership from
family businesses to institutional investors
and other consolidated corporate operations.
Monsanto in India
In India, small farms account for 92 percent of farms and occupy around 40 percent
of all agricultural land. They form the bedrock of food production. However, there is a
concerted effort to remove farmers from the
land. Hundreds of thousands of farmers have
taken their lives since 1997 and many more
are experiencing economic distress or have
left farming as a result of debt, a shift to (GM)
cash crops and economic liberalization.
Monsanto already controls the cotton
industry in India and is increasingly shaping agri-policy and the knowledge paradigm
by funding agricultural research in public
universities and institutes. Its practices and

colonization of institutions have led to it being
called the contemporary East India Company,
and regulatory bodies are now severely compromised and riddled with conflicts of interest where decision-making over GMOs are
concerned.
In the meantime, Monsanto and the GM
biotech sector forward the myth that GM food
is necessary to feed the world’s burgeoning
population. They are not. Aside from the
review by GRAIN, the World Bank-funded
International Assessment of Agricultural
Knowledge and Science for Development
Report stated that smallholder, traditional
farming (not GMOs) can deliver food security
in low-income countries through sustainable
agri-ecological systems.
The Standing Committee on Agriculture
in Parliament unequivocally concluded that
GM seeds and foods are dangerous to human,
animal and environmental health and directed
the former Government of Manmohan Singh
to ban GMOs. Despite such evidence and the
recommendations to put a hold on open field
GM trials by the Supreme Court-appointed
Technical Expert Committee, the push is on
within official circles to give such trials the
green light.
Monsanto cannot be trusted
The GM biotech sector cannot be trusted.
As its largest player, Monsanto is responsible
for knowingly damaging people’s health and
polluting the environment and is guilty of a
catalogue of decades-long deceptive, duplicitous and criminal practices. It has shown time
and again its contempt for human life and
the environment and that profit overrides any
notion of service to the public, yet it continues
to propagate the lie that it has humanity’s best
interests at heart because its so-called GMO
‘frontier technology’ can feed the hungry
millions.
The sector attempts to control the ‘science’
around its products by carrying out inadequate, secretive studies of its own, placing
restrictions on any independent research into
its products and censoring findings that indicate the deleterious impacts of its products. It
has also faked data and engages in attacking
scientists who reach conclusions not to its
liking. It cannot demonstrate that yields are
better, nutritional values are improved, health
is not damaged or that harm to the environment does not occur with the adoption of
GMOs. Independent studies and evidence,
not inadequate industry funded or back ones,
have indicated yields are often worse and herbicide use has increased, health is negatively
impacted, soil is damaged and biodiversity is
undermined, among other things.
GRAIN found that around 56 percent
of Russia’s agricultural output comes from
family farms which occupy less than 9 percent of arable land. Russia does not need or
want GM crops, which the Russian Prime
Minister has described as amounting to little
more than a form of biological warfare
weapon. And here lies the real heart of the
matter. Former US Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger once said that if you control oil
you control nations, but if you control food
you control people. GMOs are not needed to
feed the world. Science cannot justify their
use. They are a weapon.

friend, the women realize time is precious
and if they’re going to change their lives
and achieve their dreams they have to get on
it now! But Sugar Lee, their high-spirited,
determined leader, has her hands full keeping the women motivated. Carlene’s given
up on romance,
having
buried
three husbands.
Nita’s a nervous
wreck from running interference
between her problematic son and his
probation officer.
Mavis’ marriage is
so stagnant she’s
wondering how
she can fake her
own death to get
out of it. And sweet, simple Crystal entertains them all, singing Christmas carols
with her own, hilarious lyrics. The comic
tension mounts when a sexy, ex-boyfriend
shows up unexpectedly, a marriage proposal
comes from an unlikely suitor and Sugar
Lee’s arch rival vows she’ll stop at nothing
to steal the spa away from her. By the time
the women rally together to overcome these
obstacles and launch their new, improved
lives, you’ve got a side-splitting, joyful
comedy that will make you laugh out loud
and shout “Hallelujah!”

Beef-Stuffed Zucchini
4 medium zucchini
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup spaghetti sauce
or barbecue sauce
1 egg, beaten

until meat is no longer

longer or zucchini are
tender. Serve with additional spaghetti sauce or
barbecue sauce. Serves 4.

Bath takes 18-team Kalida Invite,
Williams a
lesson for us all Kalida 4th to top local units
JIM METCALFE

Metcalfe’s
Musings

By JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
Sometimes, events happen outside the sports world
that just give us pause.
The suicide of Robin Williams has seemed to be on
everyone’s mind — in every sphere, from Hollywood,
politics, sports, you name it.
How many of us … er … young pups remember him
as the hilarious Mork from Ork from “Happy Days” and
“Mork and Mindy?”
He has fleshed out his abilities as the years have gone
by and become much more than a comedian, never forgetting about the men and women in the Armed Forces
putting their lives on the line every day.
The legendary funnyman has been battling what he
called his personal demons of depression and addiction
for years and, unfortunately, they finally won.
Who in the sports world can’t relate after the wellpublicized suicides of the likes of Junior Seau, Dave
Duerson, etc.?
On the outside, these men and women seemed to have
it made, that they have everything put together in their
lives.
Who doesn’t dream about having fortune, fame, honors, celebrity and all the trappings of said celebrity?
For example, I didn’t know that my close friend,
lifelong buddy and mentor Woody Paige — OK, just
close friend! — my favorite pundit on the “Around the
Horn” show on ESPN, especially because he writes those
hilarious witticisms on the board behind him, admitted on
Tuesday’s show that he had battled depression for years.
It looked like he was ready to break down and cry right
then and there — good for him had he done so.
It just goes to show you that deep down, the high and
mighty, the in-betweeners and the weak and lowly are no
different: we all suffer and bleed and life gets to all of us
in the end.
I won’t get into some of the criticisms the media has
endured regarding what many considered crossing the
line during that press conference.
I think many of you know exactly what I am refering
to as far as some of the questions asked and some of the
details revealed.
I leave that for another day.
See MUSINGS, page 7

Tiger Woods removed
himself from consideration
for the Ryder Cup team
Wednesday evening with a
clear message that he is not
healthy enough to play.
One day after U.S. captain Tom Watson said he
trusted Woods to give him
the “straight skinny” on the
condition of his back injury
and his game, Woods said he
called the 64-year-old captain
to say he would not be available.
The decision spares
Watson from having to
leave Woods off the team
and eliminates a distraction

Kirksey making presence felt to Browns
BEREA (AP) — When veteran linebacker
Karlos Dansby looks at rookie Chris Kirksey,
it’s like staring in the mirror.
And what’s looking back at him has potential
— a lot of it.
“He reminds me of me,” Dansby said. “He
has potential to be one of the best to ever do it if
he applies himself.”
Kirksey is impressing everyone so
far in his first NFL training camp and
he’s doing it by leaning on the veterans
around him, like Craig Robertson —
whom he is battling for playing time at
the weakside position — and Dansby.
The 6-2, 235-pound rookie’s attitude
and work ethic hasn’t been lost on Dansby, who
is entering his 11th year in the league. And to
help Kirksey along, Dansby has been trying to
lead by example.
Kirksey’s presence at camp hasn’t been lost
on Browns coach Mike Pettine, either. Pleased
with the young linebacker’s performance so far
— he had three tackles in the Browns’ preseason
opener — Pettine said earlier in the week that
Kirksey would get more time with the first-team

And there he was on Wednesday, standing

Kirksey is being praised for his pass coverage and ability to play both the inside and outside linebacker positions, a type of versatility the

“Just having that type of experience

Stewart felt at home at local tracks
Associated Press
Tony Stewart had kissed the bricks
at Indy and could have jetted off to any
vacation destination.
Or he could have headed home for a
night of rest during NASCAR’s 9-month
schedule.
Instead, a little more than 24 hours
after winning the Brickyard 400, Stewart
traveled to Iowa to watch sprint car
races.
But when some fans noticed the
driver nicknamed Smoke, they began
heckling him for hanging around the
track on a Monday night.
Sprint car driver Terry McCarl
grabbed a microphone.
“This guy just won the Brickyard
yesterday,” McCarl says he told the
crowd. “He could be in Hawaii today
with a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader and
instead, he’s at Oskaloosa, Iowa, at a dirt
track race.”
The fans erupted in cheers.
Stewart has long been one of the
most proficient drivers in racing, winning in every kind of series, from sprint
cars to NASCAR’s elite Sprint Cup
Series. His passion for grassroots racing
earned him respect as a true racer.
“It’s obvious he’s a very wealthy
man. He doesn’t have to do it,” added
McCarl, a dirt track racer since 1985.
“It’s what I do for a living. I have to do
it to feed my family. But for him to go to
these little tracks, it’s amazing.”
Stewart squeezes in all these little
races in nondescript towns around the
NASCAR schedule because he loves
the thrill of the high-horsepower, lightweight cars, wheezing and skidding
around the dirt.
He rarely made his schedule public,
popping up when he pleased.
But his dirt racing career is on hold
and he could still face criminal charges
for hitting and killing Kevin Ward Jr. on
Saturday night in a sprint car race.
Visitation for Ward was Wednesday.
His funeral is scheduled for today in
Boonville, New York.

Napoli homer lifts Red Sox to 5-4 win over Reds
By GARY SCHATZ
Associated Press
CINCINNATI — Mike Leake’s home run was wasted in
another 1-run loss.
Mike Napoli hit a 2-run homer and drove in three runs to
help the Boston Red Sox wrap up their first winning road trip
of more than three games this season with a 5-4 win over the
Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday.
They lost all four games by one run to Boston this season
and are 17-27 in 1-run games.
Skip Schumaker and Cincinnati’s starting pitcher
each hit their second home runs of the season but the
Reds still ended their 7-game home stand with a 3-4
record.
“One-run losses are hard to take, certainly,” manager Bryan Price said. “You always have regrets. It has been a
difference maker. We have to play better baseball to be honest.
We’re playing hard but falling short. We have to find a way to
win some of these.”
Right-hander Anthony Ranaudo became the first Boston
rookie to start his career 2-0 since Justin Masterson won his
first three in 2008 and the Red Sox finished their eight-game
trip with five wins.
Burke Badenhop and Junichi Tazawa each pitched one
perfect inning before Edward Mujica overcame back-to-back
leadoff singles in the ninth for his third save.
Schumaker and Leake each hit solo home runs in the bottom of the fourth to give the Reds a 3-2 lead. The Red Sox

Hopefully, in the end, his death will not
have been in vain.
Mental disease — in whatever form it

Rest in peace, Robin.
———Then there are events within the
sports world that are impossible to
ignore.
I refer to the death of 20-year-old
Kevin Ward Jr. at a Saturday night race in
New York and the involvement of Tony
“Smoke” Stewart.
It is not the kind of attention anyone in
the racing world wants.
I have looked at the video that was
posted online, trying to figure it all out.
Apparently there is a second video
that the police have but which hasn’t been
released yet.
From what I saw, it was hard racing on
a dirt track — it definitely isn’t an asphalt
track with better grip — a reaction by a
young driver who got caught up in the
moment, forgot where he was and paid
the price.
To me, Stewart did nothing wrong
other than to race hard (as he is paid to do)
and try to win the race — dirt tracks are
his passion.
Some think Stewart should have gone
down farther on the track to avoid Ward

immediately responded with two outs in the fifth on Yoenis
Cespedes’ RBI single and Napoli’s 361-foot, opposite-field
homer to right, his 15th homer of the season and second of
the trip.
They Reds are 60-60 on the year and need to make a push
but Schumaker insists this is not time to panic.
Ranaudo allowed eight hits and four runs with one walk
and one strikeout in six innings.
Leake (9-11) lasted five innings, his shortest outing in 11
starts since going five innings on June 15 at Milwaukee. He
allowed eight hits and five runs with one walk and
three strikeouts.
UP NEXT: Reds RHP Alfredo Simon takes
a 0.00 ERA in 3 2/3 innings over three games
at Coors Field into his first career start today in
Colorado, where the Reds open a 7-game road trip.
TRAINER’S ROOM
Red Sox: Cespedes left the game after six innings with a
right hand contusion.
Reds: RF Jay Bruce was scratched from the Reds’ original
starting lineup due to illness. … RHP Logan Ondrusek and 2B
Brandon Phillips are scheduled to begin rehabilitation assignments with Triple-A Louisville on Friday.
DANGEROUS BAT: Mike Leake’s home run off Anthony
Ranaudo was the fourth of his career and raised his career hit
total to 65. Leake has more hits than any major-league pitcher
since his debut in 2010.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Reds’ RHP J.J. Hoover pitched a
scoreless inning with two strikeouts on his 27th birthday.

Challenge in Orlando,
Florida, the first week of

Watson and Woods have
never been close and only
talked about his Ryder Cup
situation for the first time
a few weeks ago. Even so,
Watson said all summer that
he wanted Woods on the team
provided he was healthy and
playing well.
And while Woods was
injured and not playing at all,

but since the video I saw apparently
stopped right as the accident was occurring, I don’t know if a car was too close to
his left bumper to make that impossible or
if Ward kept coming and he simply could
not see the black-clad man with a black
dirt background at a dimly-lit track.
That is where I hope the second video
can answer more questions.
That one could make or break whether Stewart gets criminal charges filed
against him.
How this investigation ends, no one
knows.
All I know is he probably shouldn’t
race for a while — whether it be selfimposed or not.
From all accounts, he is devastated.
————
This item caught my attention last
week after I wrote my column.
It is an obituary for a former National
Football League “legend” — one Ed
Sprinkle, who died July 28.
Apparently, the erstwhile Chicago Bear
defensive end of the 1940s and 50s —
who played under the legendary “Papa
Bear” George Halas — was called the
“meanest man” in football.
Even in the days of “men were men” in
professional football — not that they aren’t
now, it’s just that so much more has to be
taken into account — to be considered mean
must have meant something “pretty special.”

Watson remained interested.
Watson already has lost
Dustin Johnson, who went
3-0 at Medinah in the last
Ryder Cup, because he has
taken a “voluntary leave”
to face “personal challenges.” Jason Dufner, who went
3-1 in his Ryder Cup debut
two years ago, has a neck
injury and is out indefinitely. Dufner fell out of the
top nine who automatically
qualified.

How many fines you think he’d get
today?
Know what I mean?
————
This also caught my eye enough to
get a comment.
The San Antonio Spurs and legendary — lot of legendaries in this column, eh? — curmudgeonly coach Greg
Popovich hired former college basketball
and WNBA star Becky Hammon as a fulltime, paid assistant coach.
She is a 5-6 point guard who will retire
at the end of the WNBA season.
It’s one of those “you knew it was
going to happen at some point” events.
The concern that I have is that it’s nothing but a publicity stunt.
However, knowing how the San Antonio
Spurs are a first-class organization from the
top on down, this is anything-but a stunt,
especially because she has shown a keen
understanding of the game.
The question then becomes how will
she be respected by the players?
My guess is as first, the players will
say all the right things but will wait and
see how “Pop” treats her and how she
responds to the first time he yells at her
— like he does everyone else on his staff
and his team!
If he gives her any special treatment,
then the respect might not follow.
My guess is there will be no kid gloves.

(Continued from page 6)

Last week: Rory McIlroy won the PGA Championship at Valhalla in Louisville,
Kentucky, for his second straight major victory and third tour win a row. Phil Mickelson
was a stroke back.
Notes: The tournament is the tour’s first event in Denmark since 2003. Thomas Bjorn
tops the Danish contingent along with Thorbjorn Olesen and Morten Orum Madsen.
Bjorn has 15 European Tour victories. … Germany’s Moritz Lampert, a 3-time winner
this year on the European Challenge Tour, is in the field. … The Czech Masters is next
week, followed by the Italian Open.

Site: Knoxville, Tennessee.
Schedule: Today-Sunday.
Course: Fox Den Country Club (7,110 yards, par 71).
Purse: $550,000. Winner’s share: $99,000.
Television: None.
Last year: Peter Malnati won his first tour title, birdieing five of the last seven holes
for a 1-stroke victory.
Last week: Cameron Percy won the Price Cutter Charity Championship in Springfield,
Missouri, for his first Web.Com Tour title. The 40-year-old Australian birdied the final
two holes for a 1-stroke victory over four players.
Notes: Jarrod Lyle is making his third U.S. start since his second bout with leukemia.
The 32-year-old Australian tied for 11th in the Midwest Classic and missed the cut
last week in Springfield. When Lyle returns to the PGA Tour in October, he’ll have 20
events to earn $283,825 and reach the equivalent of No. 125 on the money list in 2012,
the year he suffered a recurrence. … The tournament is one of four remaining events
from the tour’s first season. Wichita, Kansas; Boise, Idaho; and Springfield also have
had events since 1990. … The 21-event regular season will end next week with the
Portland Open. The top 25 on the money list will earn 2014-15 PGA Tour cards. … The

And should he continue
on the path he’s been on so
far, Kirksey’s new teammates
in Cleveland will continue to
think that highly of him.
NOTES: CB Joe Haden
was given a scheduled day
off. … WR Josh Gordon was
still out with an abdominal
injury Wednesday. … The

battle for the orange jerseys
continued with Brian Hoyer
and the offense trying to score
from the 15-yard line to end
practice. The defense held,
holding on to the jerseys for
another day. … As far as how
long he expects the starters
to go Monday night against
Washington, Pettine added it
would be “in the neighborhood of a half.”

DEAR ABBY: I’m not much of a drinker.
I have nothing against drinking or those who
do. I just do not like the taste of alcohol.
Worse, I have a very low tolerance for it. After
only half a glass of wine, I become so sleepy
I can barely keep my eyes open. It makes me
feel physically awful.
My husband takes offense to the fact that
I don’t want to drink. When we’re out with
friends, he’ll have three or four beers and
pressure me to the point of embarrassment
in front of them until I finally give in and
order a glass of wine. Of course, I then spend
the rest of the evening feeling terrible. When
we get home, he’ll want to be intimate, but I
just want to go to sleep, which aggravates him
further.
I have tried for several years to discuss
this with him, but he can’t explain why he
does this. What can I do? -- JUST WATER,
PLEASE
DEAR JUST WATER: Your husband is a
drinker. He may be self-conscious about the
amount he imbibes and feels less so if he has
a drinking buddy (that’s you), willing or not.
To say the least, his behavior is inconsiderate
-- and I mean ALL of it.
When someone is involved with a problem
drinker, and from your description of his
behavior your husband is one, the place to
start looking for answers is Al-Anon. To find
a meeting close to you, go online to al-anon.

Lauer

(Continued from page 1)

While at the Delphos Herald, Lauer
worked for 43 years as a foreman on the
second floor and did a little bit of everything.
“I ran the press, laid out pages and
worked on the Linotype machine,” he said.
“I really enjoyed working at the Herald.
Setting ads was my favorite job to do.”
On September 9, 1944, Lauer married
Betty Laudick, who he met while working as a foreman at the Tank Depot in
Lima during World War II. They moved
to Delphos, started a family and had five
children. Lauer was friends with some
of his fellow coworkers including Gene
Tagenkamp, Carl Stopher, Gene Byrne,
Gene Laudick and Albert Laudick.
“I was there when the company
switched from Linotype to Offset printing,”
he explained. Lauer worked hard to support
his family. His shift at the paper ran until
4:30 p.m. and then walked across the street
to Pure Oil gas station - which became the
76 station later - on the corner of Fourth
and Main Streets and worked there until 10
p.m. “I was pumping gas that cost 18 cents
per gallon,” he said. “I washed car windows

Throughout his life, Lauer has met and
befriended many people and some of those
who were closest to him included Dick and
Donnie Kaskel and Gene and Jane Laudick
who shared their love of pinochle and/or
enjoying a night out at the Century Club.
“Betty and I went to the movies a lot at
the Capital Theatre,” he said.
Lauer is a lifetime member of St. John
the Evangelist Catholic Church where he
sang in the choir, headed the baptismal
team coordinating events, was a head
usher and participated in the liturgy.
During his retirement, Lauer
spent much of his time working at
Kolkmeyer-Helmkamp Funeral Home.
“I’m such a people person and enjoyed
greeting people during calling hours and
being a funeral attendant,” Lauer said.
Lauer currently resides at Vancrest
Health Care Center in Delphos. He
has nine grandchildren and four greatgrandchildren.
In celebration of Lauer’s 90th birthday,

Rist and another library associate used
an online simulator to create bracelets they
should receive in the mail soon.
“I’m excited we will be able to offer this
to our patrons,” Rist said. “This may be the
only chance for some to see this technology.”
Rist also announce the bid for resealing
and restriping the parking lot. Black Top
Sealing of Lima just finished a similar project
at Jefferson High School and was hired by
the board to tackle the library’s lot for $1,744.
The board is also considering installing a
messaging center on the library lawn that will
scroll upcoming events at the library. A grant
will be sought to purchase the digital signage.
Rist also reported that with the recent rains,
she was apprehensive about the library’s roof,
which had recently been repaired.
“Even with all the rain we got, we had
zero leaks,” she said. “It was nice to have a
dry floor for once.”
Rist and library fiscal officer Janet Bonifas
recently attended the Allen County Budget
Commission Hearing and will attend the Van
Wert County hearing on Aug. 21. The library
receives Local Government Funds from both
entities.

A banquet in St. John’s auditorium Sunday brought to a conclusion the 24th triennial convention
of the Ohio State Council of the
Catholic Knights of America. The
convention, the third state meeting to be held in this city, was
adjudged one of the most successful in a number of years. In
the history of the state organization, three state presidents have
been residents of Delphos: the
late J. H. Wahmhoff, H. A. Lang
of Delphos and F. X. Altenburger,
now residing in Toledo.

In India, there is a drive to
remove small/family farms,
which are capable of ensuring the nation’s food security,
and eventually replace them
with larger biotech-controlled
monoculture farms with GM
crops for Western-styled
processed-food supermarkets
and export. It is no surprise
that the likes of Syngenta,
Monsanto and Walmart had
a direct hand in drawing up
the Knowledge Initiative on
Agriculture, which was in
turn linked to the US sanctioning the opening up of
India’s nuclear power sector.
Despite India not being a
signatory to the nuclear NonProliferation Treaty, US corporations are now actively
involved in helping India
develop its civil nuclear capa-

bilities. Payback appears to
come in the form of handing
over the control of India’s
agricultural land and food
system to the US via that
country’s biotech companies.
GMOs and the bigger
picture
Russia is correct to conflate bio-terror and GMOs.
The oil-rich Rockefeller family set out to control global
agriculture via the petrochemical-dependent ‘green revolution’. The destruction of
traditional farmer-controlled
agriculture was actively supported by the US government
and its Trojan horse agritech
corporations under the agenda set out by Henry Kissinger.
GMOs now represent the ultimate stranglehold over food
via ‘terminator’ seed technology, seed patenting and intellectual property rights.
