Foust 2013 Delphos Top Cop
BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — The 2013 Delphos
Police Officer of the Year spent 22
years in another field before earning
his badge. Sgt. Greg Foust, 47, worked
at a body shop repairing vehicles but
always dreamed of becoming a police
officer. After his children became a little
older, he went after that dream and in
2006, was a special deputy for the Van
Wert and Allen County sheriff’s departments and found full-time work with the
Delphos department in February 2007.
“Certain officers have been selected
in the past for this designation due to a

specific event or series of acts such as
large drug sweeps or similar activity,”
Police Chief Kyle Fittro said. “I am
nominating Sgt. Foust for consistently
engaging in ‘above the bar’ performance, professionalism and hard work.”
Foust has spent the bulk of his time on
second shift and was assigned as second
shift acting sergeant in January 2014 and
officially promoted to sergeant on Feb. 3.
“Foust had done an outstanding job
as the second-shift supervisor with that
shift consistently being the most productive and energetic,” the chief said.
Fittro uses Foust as an example for
his other officers.

VAN WERT — The midway was
not as crowded as usual for the Jr. Fair
King and Queen Coronation Sunday
night since the opening of the Van Wert
County Fair was still 62 hours away.
Nonetheless, an appreciative crowd
watched Sunday night as this year’s
royalty was crowned at the conclusion
of the ceremony featuring four queen
candidates and two king candidates.
Four others competed to be princesses of

the species of animal they show in 4-H.
After all the judging and promenading, crowns were placed on the heads
of Sophie Wilson and Jon Germann.
This pair will preside over a long list of
events at the Van Wert County Fair and
also represent the county when visiting
other county fairs and the Ohio State
Fair.
Wilson is the daughter of Michael
and Wendy Wilson. She is an upcoming
junior at Jefferson High School. Her
school involvements include being a
member of the Fellowship of Christian
Athletes, varsity football cheerleading,

Rivera said the home he

shook so violently that he
kept getting knocked back
into his bed as he tried to
flee.
“When I woke up, my

Gov. Jerry Brown declared
a state of emergency for
southern Napa County, directing state agencies to respond
with equipment and personnel. President Barack Obama
was briefed on the earthquake, the White House said,
and federal officials were in

emergency responders.
The temblor struck about
six miles south of Napa and
lasted 10 to 20 seconds,
according to the United States
Geological Survey. It was
the largest to shake the San

magnitude-6.9 Loma Prieta

roadway and killing more
than 60 people, most when an
Oakland freeway collapsed.

POLICE
REPORT

The
Delphos
Police
Department would like to
inform local businesses that
multiple reports have been
taken in regards to counterfeit
$20 bills being circulated in
the area. These bills have been
discovered after the sale was
made and the customer left.
Employees should be vigilant
in checking the bills before
the transaction is completed.
On Aug. 16, the Delphos
Police Department was contacted in regards to a theft incident
at a business in the 200 block
of North Canal Street. Officers
spoke with the victim and
found that a male was inside
the business and left, taking a
wire welder with him. The theft
was caught on the store surveillance camera and officers have
a suspect in mind. His name is
being withheld pending the filing of formal charges.
On Aug. 16, officers
responded to a complaint in the
300 block of South Franklin
Street. A female there stated
she has been receiving unwanted text messages from a male
she knows. She is also receiving messages through other
forms of social media from this
same male. These messages
are threatening and vulgar in
nature. This incident will be
reviewed for possible charges.
On Aug. 17, a male
called the Delphos Police
Department to report a theft
of his debit/ATM card. The
male contacted his bank to
cancel the card, after finding it missing, and found that
a charge had been made on
the card after it was stolen.
This incident is under further
investigation.

Ohio to mail
voters absentee
ballot applications
COLUMBUS (AP) —
Ohio voters with up-to-date
addresses will soon get an
absentee ballot application
for the November election.
Residents should start
receiving
the
applications around Labor Day,
Secretary of State Jon Husted
announced.
Voters can cast an absentee ballot by mail or in person without giving any reason.
During the last presidential election, 6.9 million
residents received applications from the state. About
1.3 million Ohioans voted by
mail, while another 600,500
voted early in person.
The 2012 mailings came
after Husted initially barred
counties from sending out
unsolicited absentee applications to voters. He had said
it led to a disparity in voter
access and he wanted all 88
counties to follow the same
procedures.
In prior elections, primarily the state’s larger, urban
counties mailed voters the
applications without residents
having to request the paperwork. Cuyahoga County officials had threatened to defy
Husted’s order in 2012, and
the parties came to an agreement over the mailings.
“Our commitment to
treating all voters fair and
equally, regardless of where
a person lives in the state,
gives every Ohioan the same
access to the ballot,” Husted,
a Republican, said in a statement released Wednesday.
Husted’s office estimates
that this year’s mailings will
cost $1 million, which will
be paid for with federal funding from the Help America
Vote Act.
The applications will first
go out to more than 6 million active voters, including
those who cast a ballot in the
2010 or 2012 statewide elections. The voter must have
had a current address on file
with the board of elections
as of Aug. 1. Another round
of applications will be sent
in early October to those who
register to vote or update their
information after Aug. 1.
The
Republicancontrolled General Assembly
will have greater authority
over the mailings for future
elections.
State lawmakers passed a
bill in February that restricts
who could end the applications and when.
Under the law, only the
secretary of state could
mail unsolicited absentee
ballot applications for general elections and only if
the Legislature directed the
money for it. Other public
officials would be banned
from sending unsolicited
applications to voters.

Peach crop wiped out by frigid winter
TOLEDO (AP) — Farm markets
around Ohio are overflowing with tomatoes, peppers and corn. Just don’t expect
to find many Ohio-grown peaches.
This year’s harsh winter devastated
the state’s peach crop.
Fruit farmers around the state are
relying on growers in South Carolina
and Georgia to replenish their peach
supply.
“There might have been a few farms
down south by the Ohio River that
weren’t affected, but for the most part
this year was a disaster,” said Bill Dodd,
president of the Ohio Fruit Growers
Marketing Association.
Terry Gram, who owns Arrowhead
Orchard in northeastern Ohio near
Canton, said he usually grows eight
different varieties of peaches. Instead,
he needed a shipment from a farm in
Pennsylvania this year.
“The peaches and nectarines are pretty short this year because of the cold
weather we had in January. It went from
40 degrees to 10 below in 24 hours and
peach trees can’t take that quick of a
drop,” Gram said. “It was so bad that
we even lost some of the peach trees
altogether. So besides losing the crop,
we lost some of the trees — maybe 5
percent — but it’s still going to take
years to replant.”
MacQueen Orchards, just west of

Toledo, lost nearly 10 acres of its peach
trees and got just 2 percent of his normal
crop, said owner Jeff MacQueen.
Workers at the orchard were busy this
past week cutting down dead peach trees
and removing them to make way for new
trees.
“I have 10 acres of young stuff,
maybe one to five-years-old that’s good.
But the older trees that are 6-to-15, they
seemed not to do as well,” MacQueen
told The Blade newspaper in Toledo.
The family’s market has been getting peaches from a farm in western
Michigan where the peach crop largely
escaped damage.
“When it got near 20 below this winter with the air temp, that pretty much
killed them. I ordered 1,500 trees to
replant but it takes three to four years
for a tree to bear fruit,” he said. “That’s
why you never plant peach trees all at
once because they’re difficult.”
What makes them tough to grow in
the Midwest is that the trees have short
lifespans and don’t do well in sub-zero
temperatures.
Ohio isn’t a big peach producing
state. Most of those grown in the state
are sold directly to consumers.
The state produced 5,370 tons of
peaches in 2013. California, the top
peach-producing state, had 648,000 tons
last year.

Lawmakers offer suicide prevention proposal
COLUMBUS (AP) — A bill is being
proposed in Ohio that would require
community colleges and universities to
have suicide prevention programs on and
off campus.
The proposal calls for access to mental
health programs and crisis intervention,
such as a hotline. Colleges would need
plans for telling students about prevention activities and communicating with
students, staff and parents after the loss
of a student to suicide.
The Board of Regents and the state

Department of Mental Health and
Addiction Services would post free materials online to help schools meet the
requirements.
Rep. Marlene Anielski co-sponsored
the measure. She lost her son to suicide
in 2010.
Anielski,
a
Republican
from
Independence, says students need to
know that programs and help are available to them should they find themselves
struggling.

that need to be respected, honored and promoted to future generations of Americans.”
Maag’s granddaughter Lauren
Aller emphasized his honesty and
love for agriculture, family and
community in her nomination.
Maag was honored posthumously,
having passed away in 2005.
The Commendable Nominee
honor was created to recognize
nominees who were not selected
for induction into the Hall of
Fame, but have truly exemplified
the spirit of the Allen County
farmer as a dedicated and committed servant to their industry
and community.

Morton, Headey keep Emmys rehearsals casual
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Joe Morton and
Lena Headey are ready for their moment in
the Emmys spotlight.
The “Scandal” actor and “Game of
Thrones” actress were among the celebrity presenters on hand Sunday afternoon to
rehearse ahead of tonight’s NBC broadcast.
Headey was looking relaxed in a pair

of denim cutoff shorts and a white shirt as
she ran through her lines. In addition to
presenting, she’s up for her first-ever Emmy
in the outstanding supporting actress in a
drama category. Headey, who plays Cersei
Lannister on “Game of Thrones,” seemed
surprised at how heavy the trophy was when
she was handed one to mockingly deliver to

a stand-in.
Morton, dressed in a black shirt and slacks,
pretended to present an Emmy to “House of
Cards” just once before dashing off stage at
the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.
He won his first-ever Emmy for outstanding
guest actor in a drama series at last week’s
creative arts ceremony for his fatherly role on

“Scandal.”
Other presenters scheduled for today’s
66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards include
Ricky Gervais, Katherine Heigl and Hayden
Panettiere. “Late Night” talk show host and
former “Saturday Night Live” cast member
Seth Meyers is serving as the ceremony’s
host.

‘Guardians’ retakes box office, tops summer films
NEW YORK (AP) —
“Guardians of the Galaxy”
became the summer’s topgrossing movie at the North
American box office with a
$17.6 million weekend that
narrowly bested the young
adult melodrama “If I Stay,”
while the long-delayed “Sin
City” sequel, “A Dame to Kill
For,” flopped.
With an estimated $17.6
million in its fourth weekend of release, the Marvel
space adventure passed
“Transformers: Age of
Extinction” to become the
summer’s biggest domestic
hit with a cumulative total
of $252 million. The film,
released by Disney, was an
unlikely August sensation
(late summer is usually an
afterthought in Hollywood’s
lucrative summer season) that
helped the box office rebound
somewhat after big-budget
sequels like “The Amazing
Spider-Man 2” and “How To
Train Your Dragon 2” failed
to ignite the multiplexes.

not see it coming in like this.”
The hurt was particularly
acute, Lomis said, because
it happened with a longtime
Weinstein Co. collaborator,
director Robert Rodriguez.
He helmed the first “Sin
City” film, which opened
with $29.1 million in 2005
and made $159 million globally. But nine years is a long
time to wait for a sequel,
and clearly the novelty of
the film’s digital adaptation
of Frank Miller’s black-andwhite graphic novels wore
off with both moviegoers and
critics.
The faith-based high
school football film “When
the Game Stands Tall” opened
with $9.1 million for Sony.
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. “Guardians of the
Galaxy,” $17.6 million ($20.7
million international).
2. “Teenage Mutant Ninja
Turtles,” $16.8 million ($15.5
million international).
3. “If I Stay,” $16.4 million.
4. “Let’s Be Cops,” $11

6. “The Giver,” $6.7 million ($1.4 million international).

have come at a better time,”
said Paul Dergarabedian,
senior media analyst for
box-office tracker Rentrak.
“When we were really down
and out in the summer box
office — at one point down
20 percent from last year —
‘Guardians’ came along and
injected life. What is surprising is that it was a film
launched in August.”
The Warner Bros. tearjerker “If I Stay” failed to
top the box office with a
weekend haul of $16.4 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. In the film, a
co-production between MGM
and New Line Cinema, Chloe
Grace Moretz stars as a teen
in a coma after a car accident.
It came in third place behind
Paramount’s reptile reboot
“Teenage Mutant Ninja
Turtles,” which made $16.8
million in its third weekend.
Dan Fellman, head of
domestic distribution for
Warner Bros., said the studio
was pleased with the performance of “If I Stay” considering its $11 million production budget. Advance tracking on the film had forecast a
box office-topping result, but
tracking had also expected
“Sin City: A Dame to Kill
For” to open in the mid-teens.
It made just $6.5 million.
“This is a complete
miss,” said Erik Lomis, the
Weinstein Co.’s distribution
chief. “Obviously, we’re
very, very disappointed in the
numbers. We definitely did

Soccer Sunday

Pettine, Browns preparing
for life without Gordon

During the DSA’s Soccer Sunday at the St. John’s
Annex, teams in the 4-5 age group take their turns
on the pitch. According to DSA Board member Nate
Ankerman, there are well over 300 participants Paige Merricle takes her turn at Sunday’s Delphos
signed up this year ages 4-14. (DHI Media/Jim Knights of Columbus Council 1362 Soccer

Shootout.

CLEVELAND — While Josh Gordon waits to hear from
the NFL, the Cleveland Browns think they have an idea about
what is going to happen.
Coach Mike Pettine said Sunday that Gordon did not play
in the Browns’ previous exhibition game because the team is
preparing to be without the All-Pro wide receiver for at least
part of the season.
Gordon is waiting to hear from the NFL
regarding his appeal of a possible yearlong
suspension for again violating the league’s
substance-abuse program. He has been practicing and playing for weeks amid uncertainty about his career.
“Knowing that the decision is looming — that we’re fairly
certain that were not going to have him for a minimum of
some part of the year — we wanted to make sure that we were
getting repetitions with the guys that are going to be out there
early,” Pettine said.
The 23-year-old Gordon set the club’s single-season franchise record with an NFL-best 1,646 yards receiving last year
despite being suspended for the first two games. The breakout
performance included one dazzling four-game stretch where
had 36 receptions for 774 yards and five touchdowns.
But he has struggled in his preparations for this year, dropping passes during practices and preseason games. He hasn’t
spoken to reporters for month, and Pettine said his uncertain
future is weighing on him.
An unspecified injury also contributed to Gordon being held
out for Saturday night’s 33-14 loss to St. Louis, Pettine said.
“As the game went on and there was the opportunity for him
to get in there, with just the minor injury that he had, he wasn’t
loose,” Pettine added. “I consulted with (wide receivers) coach
(Mike) McDaniel and at that point we just didn’t feel comfortable putting him in. It wasn’t anything from a punishment
standpoint or anything like that. It was just common sense.”

Mahan comes up with timely victory at The Barclays
Associated Press
PARAMUS, N.J. — About
the only thing that went wrong
for Hunter Mahan at The
Barclays was when the trophy
broke. All he had to show for
perhaps the biggest win of his
career was a large wreath of
roses.
“Am I supposed to put this
on, Kentucky Derby-style?” he
asked.
That would have been fitting.
The closing stretch was exactly
what he needed Sunday.
Mahan pulled away with
three straight birdies, sealing
the victory with a 20-foot putt
down the slope on the par-5
17th. That allowed him a bogey
from the trees on the final hole
for a 6-under 65 and a 2-shot
victory in the opening FedEx
Cup playoff event.
He already has two

Considering the timing, The
Barclays felt bigger.

Bengals’ Mike Brown treated for ‘minor’ problem
Associated Press
PHOENIX — Bengals’
owner Mike Brown was treated on Sunday for what the
team called a “minor medical
situation” and was expected
to return to Cincinnati later
in the day.
Brown, who turned 79
on Aug. 10, was in Phoenix
for the Bengals’
preseason game
on
Sunday
night against the
Arizona Cardinals.
He was expected
to skip the game
and fly home.
He inherited control of the
team when his father, Paul,
died in 1991. The franchise
went through long periods of
struggle until recently. The
Bengals reached the playoffs
each of the last three seasons
— a franchise first — before
losing in the opening round
each time.
Cincinnati’s stretch with-

out a playoff win since 1990
is tied for sixth-longest in
NFL history.
Brown is the team president and serves as its de facto
general manager. In recent
years, he has relinquished
many of his duties to daughter Katie Blackburn, who is
the executive vice president.
She negotiates contracts and
deals with the team’s
salary cap. His son,
Paul, is vice president
for player personnel.
During the team’s
annual media luncheon
before the start of training camp, Brown said his
children had more responsibility in running the team.
“Oh, you can tell I’m getting old,” he added. “I’m a
grandfather. And my granddaughters are in college.
When you get old, your
children get impatient with
you. Just the way it works
in life. I have been blessed
to have been able to work

with my two kids and my
father. That’s something that
is unusual in America these
days. And I realize that roles
change.
“My role changed with my
father, just as Katie’s role
with me changes. One time
I went up, now I’m going
down and that’s just the way
it is.”
Paul Brown won a national
championship at Ohio State
and guided the Cleveland
Browns to championships
in the All-America Football
Conference and the National
Football League. After he
was fired by Browns’ owner
Art Modell following the 1962
season, he and his family joined
the push to create the expansion
Bengals, who opened play in
1968. Their current stadium is
named for him.
Mike Brown was the
assistant general manager and
legal counsel of the Bengals
before his father died on Aug.
5, 1991.

Keselowski: Don’t count out Gibbs guys just yet
Associated Press

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Brad Keselowski is
part brash racer and part pragmatist.
He was both after following Penske Racing
teammate Joey Logano to the checkered flag
at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday night,
giving the team a 1-2 finish and a continuing
surge of momentum.
Logano’s third victory of the season gave
him five consecutive finishes in the top six
and gave his teammate confirmation that
Team Penske is as much a Sprint Cup championship contender as anyone.
“I think the results speak for themselves
and we just need to keep rolling,” the 2012
series champion said. “We’ve got two teams
that are legitimate contenders by really every
stretch of the imagination.”
Logano’s sixth career victory, secured when
he passed Matt Kenseth with 44 laps to go and
then held off a challenge from Keselowski
in the closing laps, allowed him to join
Keselowski and the Hendrick Motorsports trio
of Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie
Johnson as 3-time winners this season.
It kept Kenseth, of Joe Gibbs Racing,
winless, but caused Keselowski to admit that
any groundswell of speculation expecting a
duel between the Hendrick and Team Penske
teams for the Sprint Cup Series championship
is short-sighted.
“I think we’ve all got our eyes on Matt’s
group and all the Gibbs cars and I just don’t see
a whole season going by without them having a
dominant race car,” he added of the group that
also includes Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch.
“I think we’re all fearful that that will happen at
the Chase when it counts the most.”
Logano, sporting a clown-sized smile, is
the new addition to the conversation. He’s
never won more than one race in a season
before this year but in his second season with
Penske, he clearly has found his comfort zone.
Departing the Gibbs shop two years ago
and moving to Penske caused him to take

stock of himself, he said.
“You get to walk in there as a new person,
be who you want to be,” he added. “For me,
it was kind of the moment I grew up and took
the bull by the horns and I was able to be very
fortunate to team up with the right people to
help me grow.”
___
Here are five things to watch over the last
two races before the Chase field is set:
STEWART’S CAR: Tony Stewart missed
his third consecutive race after being involved
in a sprint car accident that killed Kevin Ward
Jr. in New York. Jeff Burton filled in for the
third week in a row, had the car in the top 10
at one point and finished 15th. Might he finish
the season in the car?
MATT’S IN: He won’t say it because he’s
cautious that way, but despite not having won
a race, Kenseth is fifth in the points battle, one
spot above 6-time champion Jimmie Johnson,
who has won three times. It would take a
string a monumental dominoes falling wrong
for him not to be in after Richmond.
TEMPER TANTRUM: ‘Chemistry’ is a
word often used in NASCAR to explain a
team’s success and Kyle Busch must not be a
science guy. Crew chief Dave Rogers, weary
of his driver’s incessant complaining during Saturday night’s race, finally told Busch
to park the car by the hauler and take his
“whiny” self to the bus. Busch parked it all
right but on pit road, leaving his crew members to push it to the hauler.
HAMLIN AND HARVICK: NASCAR
said there will be no action taken against
Hamlin for throwing his HANS device at
Kevin Harvick’s car as it passed under caution
after Harvick caused Hamlin to spin and crash
as the leader. There’s history between these
two, though, and both are locked into the
Chase, so if “Boys, have at it” is their prevailing mindset the next two weeks, the five or six
drivers contending to qualify for the playoffs
on points might be well-advised to be aware
of where these two are at all times.

on-goal) came up with the saves.
At half, it was 1-0, St. John’s.

With 11:20 remaining, Jenna Calvelage of Ft, Jennings took
a corner kick but the ball was cleared out by the Jays defense.
At the 4:10 mark, Jennings got the equalizer, when Alyssa

Tow leads Lancer boys to
second in St. John’s Invite
By JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS — Lincolnview senior
Bayley Tow led the Lancer boys cross
country unit to a second-place finish in
the season-opening 14-team St. John’s
Invitational on a warm and humid
Saturday morning at Stadium Park.
Tow was second overall (16:55.92)
and teammate Alex Rodriguez fifth
(17:46.07).
“We’re actually disappointed in the
outcome today. We had a chance to win
it when you consider we had three boys
in the top 10,” Lincolnview head coach
Matt Langdon explained. “We had too
much distance between our third guy
and those that followed. Where we hurt
ourselves was getting passed at the 4-6
spots by either New Bremen guys or
someone else; you cannot beat a good
team like Bremen doing that. Those are
costly points we didn’t get; I don’t feel
we finished well. We’ll take this as a
lesson about running hard the entire way
and not letting up at the end.”
Crestview was fourth, with the overall individual winner being Mycah
Grandstaff (16:39.47) and Branden
Clayton was 18th (18:57).
“Mycah ran very well. He had a
good race for the opener with Tow,
Rigg from LCC and the New Bremen
guys,” Crestview coach Mark Bagley
explained. “It wasn’t just Mycah, either.
I thought all the boys competed well. I
like this meet so early; it’s good competition right off the bat. It’s tough to run
it so early but St. John’s does a great job
with it.”
Kalida, which finished sixth, had its
top two finishers being Adam von der
Embse, 25th (19:23) and Grant Zeller,
28th (19:38).
Robert Modic led Spencerville’s
10th-place ending with a 29-place finish
(19:39) and Ed Smith’s 46th (20:39).
Ottoville was 11th behind Cody
Kemper’s 43rd-place finish (20:27.62)
and the 44th of Eric Von Sossan (20:30).
“I thought the boys did very well.
Last fall, we were mostly in the last third
of races; today, we were in the middle
third,” Ottoville mentor Bob Kaple said.
“We’re still pretty young; we only have
one senior, so we have a lot of room to
improve; we have three sophomores in
our top five. We want to compete and for
us, competing means winning. I think
we’ll keep getting better.”
St. John’s did not have a full team and
Curtis Pohlman was eighth (18:03.79)
and Nick Pohlman was 30th (19:42).
On the girls side, the top local team
finisher was the LadyCats in fourth, with
Katelyn Siebeneck 13th (22:13) and
Kristen Fortman 21st (23:27).
“We finished about where I thought
we would. I thought the heat and humidity bothered us some; we really haven’t
had to train in it because the summer
has been very nice,” Kalida coach Scott
Miller said. “Katelyn finished 15th,
which is what I thought she would end
up. Adam and Grant were in the top 30.
We have to learn from this; we can now
put together some specific training plans
from here on in and I think it will help
us down the road.”
The Lady Lancers were fifth behind
Anna Gorman 14th (22:21) and Abbie
Enyart 17th (22:38).
“I was pleased with our girls. We
have a very young team; several of the
girls were running in junior high last
year,” Langdon added. “They’re learn-

The Lady Bearcats had two runners: Cierra Adams, eighth (21:54) and
Destiney Fiely, 95th (31:12).
“I thought the times were slower than
expected but that’s where the weather came into play,” Spencerville head
coach Brian McMichael explained. “I
felt we ran hard and that’s a start for
such a young team overall. We focus a
lot of running in a pack and that takes
time to really learn, especially when
you have younger kids that haven’t run
varsity cross country before. Overall, it’s
a good opening meet and we’ll move on
from here.”
St. John’s, Ottoville and Lincolnview
are in the Wayne Trace Invitational 4:30
p.m. Tuesday.
Spencerville, Kalida and Crestview
are in the Columbus Grove Invitational
9 a.m. Saturday.

John’s Cross Country Invitational

Park. (DHI Media/Jim Metcalfe)
ing how to compete at the 5K level but
the next step is learning how to attack
a course and be aggressive. The good
thing is we beat a number of NWC
schools here today; we’ll get better as
the season goes on and we become better racers.”
Crestview was eighth, with Ashley
Bowen leading the way in sixth (21:40)
and Leslie Skelton 24th (23:45).
“Our girls had a great meet. This is a
good way to start a season and it gives us
a benchmark,” Bagley added. “Our first
girl (Bowen) hadn’t run a cross country
race before and Leslie had a good race.
A hot and humid day like today wakes
you up, too, as far as hydration, nutrition and taking better care of your body,
especially before a race. Sometimes,
kids have to learn that the hard way.”
St. John’s, Ottoville and Spencerville
did not have full girls teams.
Tops for the Lady Blue Jays were
Breece Rohr, 20th (22:57) and Baylee
Lindeman, 43rd (25:24).
“We couldn’t field a fifth runner today
for the boys because Evyn (Pohlman) is
looking for a new prosthesis and we
need for the swelling to go down to
get one to fit,” Blue Jay coach Steve
Hellman began. “We’re hoping to have
him back soon. On the girls side, Baylee
took a minute and a half off her time
today; that’s impressive. Overall, the
times were slower for everybody.”
For the Lady Big Green, McMenna
Byrne was 31st (24:28) and Elizabeth
Luersman 36th (24:56).
“We have three freshmen running
their first varsity races, so I was happy
with their performance,” Kaple added.
“Not having enough for a team changes
how you approach things. You look
for individual accomplishments and
improvement. We’re facing a numbers
crunch here at Ottoville — a lot of small
schools are — considering volleyball,
soccer and cheerleading; that is a big
thing here.”

Associated Press
REDS 5, BRAVES 3
CINCINNATI — It was a long time coming but Alfredo
Simon got his first win of the second half
Simon pitched seven strong innings to earn his first win in
eight starts since the All-Star break and Todd Frazier homered
as the Cincinnati Reds held on for a 5-3 win over the Atlanta
Braves on Sunday.
Simon (13-8), who was 0-5 since pitching in the All-Star
Game, opened with six shutout innings before yielding a run
in the seventh. He allowed five hits with one walk and six
strikeouts over seven innings.
Manny Parra and Jumbo Diaz pitched the eighth. Logan
Ondrusek allowed Evan Gattis’s 20th homer leading off the
ninth and Jonathan Broxton gave up Jason Heyward’s RBI
single before coaxing Justin Upton into grounding into a baseloaded forceout for his seventh save for the Reds.
The Reds strung together five hits to break up a scoreless
tie in the fourth. After Ryan Ludwick came up with a basesloaded sacrifice fly, Brayan Pena and Zack Cozart added RBI
singles while sending Aaron Harang to his first loss in four
career starts against his former team.
Jay Bruce’s single in the inning was a ground ball that
Freddie Freeman fielded but first base was not covered.
INDIANS 3, ASTROS 1
CLEVELAND — The Indians can thank their starting
pitching for keeping them in playoff contention.

Trevor Bauer continued that trend Sunday by taking a shutout into the seventh and Cleveland hung on for a 3-1 win over
the Houston Astros.
The Indians (66-63) have used strong work by their rotation to stay in the postseason picture. Cleveland’s starters have
recorded a 1.71 ERA in 13 games since Aug. 9.
Bauer (5-7), winning for the first time since July 18, held
Houston to four hits and struck out nine. The right-hander was
pulled after issuing a leadoff walk in the seventh.
Cody Allen, the Indians’ fourth pitcher, worked out of
ninth-inning trouble for his 17th save.
Carlos Santana’s sacrifice fly in the third put Cleveland
ahead while Lonnie Chisenhall had an RBI single in the
fourth. Jose Ramirez added an RBI single in the seventh.

Here is the difficult part: This will still be
my biological grandchild. When this beautiful
child is lovingly handed over to the adoptive
parents, I will be losing a grandchild. I am
already in mourning.
Are there other grandparents out there who
are going -- or have gone -- through this, and
how are they coping? I already see a therapist,
but I would still like to know how others are
coping. -- UN-GRANDPARENT IN OHIO
DEAR UN-GRANDPARENT: I wish you
had told me more about the kind of adoption
your daughter has chosen for her baby. If
it is an open adoption in which she will be
kept informed about the child’s milestones
and progress, ask the adoptive couple if they
would welcome you as an “extra” grandparent
for the child. If I hear from others who have
gone through this process, I will let you know,
because I’m sure they will write to help you
through your heartache.
DEAR ABBY: I am being married to the
man of my dreams next month. “Jon” and I
love each other and are excited to celebrate
our life as husband and wife together with our
families and friends.
I have a 6-year-old daughter from a previous
relationship, and after talking to her, she told
me she would like to walk me down the aisle
instead of being our flower girl. I love the idea,
and so does Jon.
I will have to talk to my dad about it,
because I know he was looking forward to it
although we do NOT have a close relationship.
I have lived on my own since I was 17. How

close to your father, this may not come as a
shock to him. However, if he was asked to
walk you down the aisle, he may be very hurt
and it could cause a rift.
Be as diplomatic as possible when you break
the news. Start by saying, “I was talking about
the wedding with little ‘Jennifer,’ and she came
up with an idea Jon and I think is adorable.
Instead of being our flower girl, she wants to
walk me down the aisle. We feel it would bring
our little family even closer together. I hope
you don’t mind....”
DEAR ABBY: My husband has a lowpaying job and I am trying to see that he gets
a better one, but each step I take he regards as
pestering him. This has driven us apart from
each other. It really hurts me because we are
now like strangers living together. What do I
do? -- SAD WIFE IN ABUJA, NIGERIA
DEAR SAD WIFE: Change tactics. What
you consider helpful encouragement may be
regarded by your husband as constant nagging
about a sore subject. Tell him you love him,
didn’t mean to pressure him -- and if you see
some ads seeking men with his skills that offer
a higher salary, let him know about them.
That’s what I would do.

Consistent oral hygiene will get rid of bad breath

DEAR DOCTOR K: My
breath is OK during the day,
but when I wake up in the
morning, it’s terrible. What
causes bad morning breath?
And what can I do to prevent
it?
DEAR READER: Bad
breath, or halitosis, is a
common problem -- especially
“morning breath.” (Some
people call it “dragon breath.”)
Certain foods can cause bad
breath. Garlic and onions are
classic examples. Reflux of
stomach contents can do the
same. So can serious diseases
of the liver or kidneys.
Infections of the tonsils,
sinuses or respiratory tract can
also be responsible for bad
breath.
& Wel
dingcommon
most

cationthe
Inc.
FabriBut
of bad breath in the morning
are bacteria that reside in your
mouth. Like us, bacteria need
food to live. They get their food
from substances that cover our
gums, tongue and throat, and
that fill the spaces between our
teeth. When bacteria “digest”
their food, they make various
bad-smelling gases, including
sulfides and amines.
These bad-smelling gases
are most likely to be produced
at night. That’s because during
the night most of us do a lot of
breathing through our mouth.
That causes saliva to dry
out, and the dry environment
encourages the bacteria to
produce more gases. Any
medication or condition that
reduces the flow of saliva can

do the same. Morning breath
is unpleasant, but it can be
quickly relieved by rinsing
your mouth with water or
mouthwash.
Halitosis
that
lasts
throughout the day is also
triggered by the wide range of
bacteria that live in everyone’s
mouth. When you don’t brush
your teeth twice daily, there
is more “food” around for the
bacteria in your mouth.
Poor oral hygiene also
increases the amount of dental
plaque, and bacteria love to
live in the plaque. Diseases
of your gums and structures
supporting the teeth can allow
these bacteria to get the upper
hand and cause halitosis.
Even when teeth and gums
are healthy, dentists suspect
that bacteria on the tongue
contribute to bad breath.
If you have bad breath,
here’s what to do:
-- Keep the saliva flowing.
Drink plenty of water and
chew sugarless gum.
-- Avoid antihistamines
and other medications that
dry the mouth, if alternative
medicines work just as well.
-- See your dentist regularly
and get prompt treatment for
any problems.
-- Get your teeth cleaned
by a dental hygienist at least
twice a year.
-- Practice meticulous oral
hygiene. That means flossing
regularly
and
brushing
your teeth -- and tongue -diligently.

Dr. Anthony
Komoroff

On
Health
That’s right, the tongue.
Brushing the upper surface of
your tongue every time you
brush your teeth removes a lot
of gas-producing bacteria.
-- Avoid foods (like onions
and garlic) that you find make
your breath smell bad.
-- Don’t smoke or chew
tobacco. They encourage the
growth of mouth bacteria and
irritate the nose and sinuses,
making them more vulnerable
to infection.
-- Use an antibacterial
mouthwash.
-- Keep breath mints on
hand for a quick, if temporary,
cover-up.
Finally, relax. It’s simple
to reduce bad breath in the
morning.

avowed by al-Qaida earlier
this year after being deemed
too brutal. Curtis’ relatives
said they were not aware
of the specific terms of his
release but said they were
assured by Qatari representatives that they negotiated
Curtis’ release without a ransom payment.
President Barack Obama,
who was wrapping up a
vacation in Massachusetts,
was briefed Sunday morning
on Curtis’ release.
“The president shares in the
joy and relief that we all feel
now that Theo is out of Syria
and safe,” said White House
spokesman Eric Schultz.
“But we continue to hold in
our thoughts and prayers the
Americans who remain in captivity in Syria, and we will
continue to use all of the tools
at our disposal to see that the
remaining American hostages
are freed.”
A senior administration official said Curtis
was released in the Golan
Heights, where he was met
by U.S. government personnel who were transporting
him to Tel Aviv. The official
was not authorized to speak
by name and discussed the
release on the condition of
anonymity.

WASHINGTON — An
American journalist kidnapped and held hostage for
nearly two years by an alQaida-linked group in Syria
was released Sunday, less

journalist James Foley by
