DELPHOS — Nearly 30 city officials, business owners and concerned citizens met at the Delphos
Eagles Tuesday night to continue a
forward momentum of discussions
of how to develop new and retain
the existing business infrastructure
of Delphos.

DHI Media Advertising Manager
Peter Ricker, who led the meeting, said
the key effort is about everyone coming
together as a community.
Following the Aug. 5 meeting, Ricker
and First Federal Bank’s Community
Banking Center Manager Cindy
Metzger pinpointed six specific discussion topics — Business and Community
Development, Commercial Real Estate,
Website Development, Welcome

OTTOVILLE —Village Council members approved the purchase of a new $4,895 Watchguard video system for the police
department Crown Victoria cruiser during Monday night’s council
meeting.
Chief of Police Jay Herrick presented two quotes on two different video systems and said he thought the Watchguard had the
“bells and whistles” needed.
“I talked with Ottawa’s police department and they recommend
the system and they have had no issues with it,” he said.
Council members discussed details of the system including warranty, time stamping, built in memory and portability. Herrick said
some of these types of videos help in court.
Herrick also asked council to revisit the village’s golf cart ordinance and suggested fining repeat offenders — those driving under
age with no license.
“We keep warning them and it may be time to issue written
warnings and begin fining them for first, second and third offenses,”
he said.
Councilmen Carl Byrne and Randy Altenburger weighed in on
the issue.
“I see 10- and 11-year-olds driving all the time,” Byrne said.
“I think parents should be notified and given a warning,”
Altenburger said.
Mayor Ron Miller said all the information will be given to the
committee.
As previously discussed during last month’s council meeting,
the topic turned to constructing sewer and water lines out to the
Niedecken property which is set to be developed. After a rough estimate by Choice One Engineering for $174,000 to install the sewer
and water lines up Road P to service the 11 lots that will be for sale
in the future, council chose to have a survey and any engineering
performed before entertaining quotes.

Police chief warns
of fake $20s
DHI Staff Reports

DELPHOS — Delphos
Police Chief Kyle Fittro
announced on Facebook
Tuesday a warning to
local businesses about
counterfeit bills being
circulated in Delphos.
His post read: “In recent
days, we have had five local
businesses receive a total
of 11 separate counterfeit
$20 bills. Please be extra
vigilant when accepting
$20 bills as payment.”
When contacted by The
Herald, Fittro said the marker
used to detect counterfeit
money, if used, would have
shown the money to be fake.

Velasquez gives mural a touch up

Muralist Oscar Velasquez freshened up the mural on the side of The Delphos Herald building Tuesday.
The mural was done in the summer of 1995 and the artist returns every 4-5 years to keep the mural
looking new. Velasquez painted his first mural in 1985 in Anderson, South Carolina, and his last in
Findlay, which was dedicated last Thursday. He is headed to Kalida next for some additions to the
mural on Main Street for Pioneer Days. Velasquez has done a total of 48 murals, 25 in Northwest
Ohio. (DHI Media/Nancy Spencer)

volunteers for Supper Club
INFORMATION SUBMITTED

VAN WERT — The Marsh Foundation and Big Brothers
Big Sisters need volunteers to be a Big for the Supper Club
Program. There are several youth from The Marsh Foundation
looking forward to spending some time with a special friend a
couple of times a month beginning in late October.
Without enough volunteers some of these youth may not be able
to participate in the program. You could be that special person!
One youth from the program in the past said that the best
day we had a Supper Club was the day he got his Big! You
could help give another youth the same experience.
The program will begin in late October. In the Supper Club
program, the Bigs and Littles get together on the first and third
Thursdays of the month for supper and an activity. Some of the
things planned include a Christmas Party and Feast, All Group
Birthday Party, art project at Wassenberg Art Center, service
projects, going to Camp Clay, making meals, Minute to Win It
games, The Amazing Race and lots of other fun! The volunteers
also visit their Little at the youth’s group home once a month on
a weekend day of their choosing for a couple of hours.
To participate in this program or for more information,
please contact Big Brothers Big Sisters at 419-394-2990,
1-866-670-BBBS, or e-mail: neberle@bbbsma.com or Sherry
Grone from The Marsh Foundation at 419-605-2512 or
sgrone@marshfoundation.org.
It doesn’t take a lot to make a big difference in a life of a
youth at The Marsh Foundation. A past youth summed it up
when he said it is really cool how you guys do this for us. It is
really appreciated. It’s a lot of fun.

It is Sunday evening around 9
p.m. All is quieting down here at the
Eicher homestead. Tomorrow looks
like a busy day and this column needs
to be in the mail.
Son Joseph, 12, had surgery on
Thursday to have his tonsils and
adenoids removed. We arrived home
by 4 p.m. and were thankful all went
well.
That night, Joseph seemed very
restless and wasn’t able to sleep for
very long. Joe and I were up with him
a lot trying to make him comfortable.
Around 1 a.m. Joseph said that he felt
like he had to throw up. Everything
he threw up looked like blood and
there was a lot of it. I called the local
emergency room and talked to a doctor, wondering what we should do.
The doctor said to wait and see if he
did it again, and that if he didn’t all
should be fine.
Around 5 a.m., daughters
Elizabeth and Susan were getting
ready for work and I was packing
son Benjamin’s lunch. Joseph started
throwing up blood again, so we called
a friend to take us to the hospital. I
was so glad Joe didn’t have to work
and was home to go with me. While
Joe was helping Joseph out to the
van, Joseph passed out. That scared
us even more.
The doctors checked him out and
took some tests. He had a big blood
clot on the incision and was badly
dehydrated. They decided to transfer
him to a bigger hospital an hour away
by ambulance. Surgery was scheduled for as soon as we arrived.
How thankful we were, after wait-

d o c t o r
came
to
tell us that
the surgery
went well
and they
were able
to remove
the blood
clot
and
repair the
incision. He lost quite a bit of blood
but they thought he would be fine
without giving him some blood. They
kept him on an IV to get some fluids
in him.
We were so happy that we could
bring Joseph home again the same
day. He felt a lot better that evening
but I had to give him his medication
around the clock. He slept lots better that evening but was still very
weak.
Saturday morning we had an
easy breakfast as my friend Ruth
brought a blueberry French toast
casserole ready for the oven. What
a treat!
Timothy (Elizabeth’s friend) is in
the process of having a pole barn put
up on his property. He is doing all
the labor with the help of family and
friends. Saturday he had quite a few
that came to help. The rafters and
roof, along with the plywood around
the outside walls, were all put on. The
men and boys accomplished a lot in a
short time.
Some of the women came along

and some
sent food
with their
men. By
the time
all the food
was on the
table, there
was more
than plenty.
Joseph
was able to
come for
a while.
He isn’t
allowed to ride in the buggy yet but
Ruth brought him with her car and
took him back home later. He was
glad to be able to come see what’s
going on, and said he wished he could
be hammering on nails with all the
other boys.
Trials like Joseph’s scare us but
there is a God we can turn to for comfort. I often wonder how we would
survive without His guiding hand.
May God bless each of you!
I will share Ruth’s recipe for blueberry French toast casserole. I am
usually not a blueberry fan but I did
like this.
Blueberry French Toast Casserole
12 slices day-old bread (cut into
1-inch cubes)
1 8-oz package cream cheese
12 eggs (beaten)
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup maple syrup
Sauce:
1 cup white sugar

2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon butter
Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.
Arrange half the bread cubes in the
dish and top with cream cheese cubes.
Top with blueberries and remaining bread. In a large bowl, mix egg,
milk, vanilla and syrup. Pour over the
bread cubes. Cover and refrigerate
overnight.
The next morning, remove from
refrigerator 30 minutes before baking and preheat oven to 350°. Bake
covered for 30 minutes, then bake
uncovered for another 25-30 minutes
or until center is firm and lightly
browned.
In a saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch and water. Bring to a boil,
stirring constantly, and cook for 3-4
minutes. Mix in remaining 1 cup
blueberries. Reduce heat and simmer
10 minutes until blueberries burst.
Stir in the butter and pour over casserole.

INFORMATION SUBMITTED
Tow paces Lancers to Wayne Trace title
GROVER HILL — Senior Bayley Tow paced the
Lincolnview boys cross country team to the title of the
Wayne Trace Invitational held Tuesday at Grove Hill Park.
The Lancers — with Alex Rodriguez
garnering third and Trevor Neate eighth
— outpaced Fairview 34-82.
Ottoville was 12th, with Eric Von
Sossan finishing 41st and Cody Kemper
60th.
St. John’s did not have a team score but had its top runners Curtis Pohlman, 12th, and Nick Pohlman 47th.
On the girls side, Lincolnview — behind Anna Gorman’s
10th and Abbie Enyart’s 15th — was sixth.
The Lady Blue Jays — topped by Breece Rohr’s eighthplace finish and Baylee Lindeman’s 43rd — and the
Lady Big Green — Alena Looser was 23rd and Elizabeth
Luersman 38th — did not have team scores.
“The girls ran very well with three of them setting personal records on a hot evening on a tough course which
I hope will lead to even better times as it
gets colder and on some faster courses,”
St. John’s coach Steve Hellman submitted.
“For the boys, the times were a little slower
than Saturday but they were about what I
expected for the course and heat.”

DELPHOS

Coldwater’s girls soccer crew had two matches
postponed last week due
to weather, so the Lady
Cavaliers were looking
forward to their inaugural Western Ohio Soccer
League matchup versus
St. John’s at the St. John’s
Annex.
Even that was threatened
as lightning and thunder
forced a 1- hour, 45-minute
delay.
When the match finally
began, the Cavaliers won
2-0.
“I don’t know if it was
the delay or the fact that
it was the second day of
school but we just didn’t
have the intensity I
expected today,” first-year
St. John’s coach Katrina
Hammons explained. “I
just expected more today.
I think we defended pretty
well overall but they have a
solid front line, especially
with No. 1 (Maura Hoying)
and 12 (Erica Sudhoff); if
you give them an inch, they
take a mile. They are a
tough matchup, especially
because they are so much
deeper.”
For Coldwater coach
Scott Brinkman, it was a
relief to finally get a match
in.
“We had the two matches we didn’t have and it
didn’t look promising
tonight. We’ve had a couple of key injuries early —
Holly Rindler (a senior) is
done for the season with an
ACL injury and our starting keeper, Alanna Severt,
broke her collarbone,” he
explained. “Because of
some other things, this was
the first time we’ve had
these 11 girls together and

during Tuesday night’s WOSL girls soccer matchup
at the St. John’s Annex. (DHI Media/Jim Metcalfe)
I was a bit nervous. We
played very well and I was
pleased with that.”
Coldwater — with 34
players on the roster —
owned the ball possession,
registering 16 shots on-goal
to a mere five for the Lady
Blue Jays (0-1-1).
Still, the young and thinner Jays — 18 players —
held on behind the solid
play of senior goalkeeper Sam Wehri (12 saves,
several of the diving and
scrambling variety) —
returning from a pre-season
injury.
The Jays did have six
corner kicks to two for the
guests.
The visitors finally
broke through at 19:53. On
a lead pass from Madie

Schoenherr,
Hoying
1-touched a shot from 20
yards on the right post and
found the left side of the
cords for a 1-0 edge.
The Jays only had one
real attempt at the net in
the first 40 minutes — at
21:23, when sophomore
Courtney Wrasman floated
a 30-yarder just over the
top of the crossbar against
Cavalier keeper Brittany
Muhlenkamp (3 saves).
The Cavaliers continued
to own the ball possession
game in the second half but
once again, Wehri and the
defense held on, as well as
the Cavaliers just missing
on a couple of close calls.
Still, with all the pressure Hoying, Sudhoff
and their teammates were

applying, it was only a matter of time.
That came at 11:18 when
a handball in the box was
called on the Jays and
Hoying took the penalty
kick. She went hard and to
the right to make it 2-0.
The Jays were called for
another handball in the box
and this time, Sudhoff got
the PK. This time, though,
Wehri came up with the
goods.
The Jays had a couple
of chances in the half: at
35:25, when sophomore
Kristina Koester was denied
on a 30-yarder; at 29:30,
when Koester’s try was
kicked wide by a defender;
at 6:45, when senior Emilee
Grothouse was stymied
on a 20-yarder; and at 52
ticks, when Grothouse was
stopped on an 18-yarder.
Smith knows this is a
long season.
“We’ll get better. I am
confident we will bounce
back,” Smith added. “We
have a tough stretch here
in our schedule where it
seems we have a match
every other day. The good
thing about that is the mistakes we made — whatever
they are — we won’t soon
forget; we can keep them
fresh in our minds and work
on them immediately.”
For Brinkman, he’s in
the same boat.
“It doesn’t get any easier
for us as far as our schedule,” he added. “It pays
to have two players like
Maura and Erica. Maura,
a freshman, just sees the
game so much clearer than
a lot of others, while Erica
is just one who lays it on
the line every match; she
never wants to come out.”
Both teams return to
action Thursday at 5 p.m.:
St. John’s at home versus
Allen East and Coldwater
hosting Wapakoneta.

Big Green goose-eggs Lancer boys
BY CHARLIE WARNIMONT
DHI Media Correspondent
news@delphosherald.com
OTTOVILLE — Lincolnview’s
boys soccer team didn’t allow a goal
over the final 50 minutes of action
against Ottoville Tuesday evening.
It was the first 30 minutes where
the Big Green did all their scoring
against a young Lancer squad trying
out a new defensive scheme. Ottoville
scored six times in the first 30 minutes
as they went on to post a 6-0 nonleague win over the Lancers on cloudy,
warm night in Ottoville.
The win moved the Big Green to
3-0-2 on the season, while the Lancers
dropped to 0-3-0.
Offensively Ottoville applied pressure on the Lancer goal from the opening kick as the Big Green scored just
29 seconds into the match.
Junior Jared Fanning opened the
scoring when he picked up a ball on
the right side of the field, dribbled in
on the Lincolnview net and fired a shot
at the far corner to beat a diving Lancer
keeper for a 1-0 lead. Four minutes later,
Fanning made it 2-0 when he settled a
ball in the box, split a pair of Lancer
defenders and fired a shot past the
keeper at the 35:34 mark of the contest.
“We really wanted to come out and
really establish ourselves right away,”
Ottoville coach Eric Gerker said. “Our
passing game, our possession game. We
were able to exploit some of the things
they were doing on defense with some
of our passing and cuts off the ball. We
got a lot of good looks early and we
were able to finish six of them.”
Lincolnview got their first shot on
goal a minute later when senior forward Jacob Pollock beat the defense
and dribbled into the box where he
fired a shot that Big Green keeper
Colin Bendele hauled in.
Ottoville senior midfielder Joel
Beining made it 3-0 with 30:35 left
in the opening half as Fanning hit
him with a pass on the left side of the
box, that he was able to settle and fire
into the goal. Forty-five seconds later
Beining made it 4-0 when he converted another shot on goal.
Lincolnview junior Austin Leeth
had two prime opportunities to cut
into the Big Green lead with two quality shots in a four minute span. On
his first attempt, Leeth had a point
blank opportunity on goal that Bendele
knocked down and his defensive mates
cleared. His second attempt, from 15

Lincolnview’s Josh Leiter and Ottoville’s Jon Knippen battle for possession in boys soccer action Tuesday afternoon at Ottoville. (DHI
Media/Charlie Warnimont)
yards out, just sailed over the cross
bar.
Ottoville went up 5-0 with 20:13
left in the opening half as freshman
Logan Kemper netted a goal after getting a pass from Fanning. Freshman
Zane Martin made it 6-0 with 12:43
left in the half when he knocked home
a shot.
“It was a little difficult starting out,
but we were trying a different defense,
something they weren’t used to playing yet,” Lancer coach Britt Munson
said. “We just took our lumps the first
half, but I’m proud of the guys. They
kept their heads up. We didn’t leave
in any goals in the second half as our
defense played better. We were a little
more organized and that’s really all
you can do is be proud of them for
hanging in there and taking pride in
what they were doing and not giving
up anything.”
An outside factor that helped the
Lancers adjust their defense was a 30
minute lightning delay that happened
near the end of the 10 minute halftime

break.
While the Big Green were able
to get runs on the Lancer goal, they
didn’t have the quality looks they were
getting the first half.
“We had that weather delay and it
gave me a little more time to talk to
them and get them to learn,” Munson
added. “You have to learn. Just because
you are beat down now, you have to
keep your head up, take pride in what
we are playing for and have fun. That
was the main thing. They weren’t
arguing with each other the second
half, they were having some fun.”
“We didn’t play real well after
the weather delay,” Gerker said. “We
passed the ball, but not as efficient as
I would have liked. They were able
to get some shots on us early in the
game with that 3-4 set they were running, but we were able to make some
adjustments and we locked them down
pretty good after those couple of early
chances.”
Ottoville finished with a 16-4 edge
in shots on goal for the match.

Monday Athletic Roundup
Lady Jeffcats, Miller City battle to soccer draw
By JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
MILLER CITY — Jefferson scored the first and last
goals versus Miller City on a warm and humid Monday
afternoon/evening at Miller City.
Unfortunately for the Red and White Wildcats, the host
Wildcats scored the middle two to earn a 2-2 draw in girls
soccer action.
Scoring for the Lady Jeffcats (2-0-1) were junior Logan
Hamilton (assisted by senior Kylee Haehn) at 21:39 of the
first half and that same combination at 11:06 of the second
half, beating junior goalkeeper Amanda Simon (5 saves
versus 9 shots on-goal).
The Lady Wildcats of Miller City —
opening their season — got tallies on a
Jefferson own goal at 18:40 and at 11:18 on
a goal from junior Brittany Kohls (assist by
sophomore Taylor Kaufman) past Jefferson junior keeper
Jessica Pimpas (7 saves vs. 11 shots on-goal).
Jefferson head coach Josiah Stober was not pleased
with his team’s performance.
“We had no intensity, enthusiasm or leadership today.
Thankfully, there is only first day of school because we
didn’t have it today,” he explained. “We didn’t do the
thigns we had done so far that has made us successful: our
communicatrion, passing, everything was off; we were
standing around too much. That is basically due to our
lack of intensity; we allowed them to be more physical and
knock us off the ball and we never adjusted. We have to
get back to those things for us to be succesful.”
Miller City head coach Ron Bruce was more happy.
“We have one senior on our roster. We play four freshmen at lot in the middle and the back line,” Bruce added.
“We learned a lot today. We have a lot of other girls that
have to adjust to the speed of the varsity game, the communication and everything else, like making that one extra
pass or taking that one extra dribble. That will come.”
Both teams struggled to piece together scoring sequences in the early going, with the hosts having a couple of
chances foiled by either shooting over the crossbar or
sliding just wide.
The Jeffcats made their first real chance a good one:
with Haehn shooting from the right wing, her 18-yarder
was deflected by the keeper to the other side, with
Hamilton was Johnny-on-the-spot for the close-range putback at 21:39.
That score stood up the erst of the half as Miller City’s
last try of the half — an 18-yarder by Liz Klear — hit off
the bar with a mere two ticks left.
The second half seemed to be more in the visitors’
favor, with one major try — Haehn’s 18-yarder at 25:01
— was deflected away by a defender.
At 18:40, the hosts tied it. Off a corner kick from the
left side by Kohls, the orb crossed to the right side, where
a Red and White defender accidentally kicked it into her
own goal trying to clear.
On Miller City’s next great chance — at 11:18 — they
quickly countered and Kaufman back-passed it to Kohls
for a 20-yarder form the left psot that went over the top of
Pimpas and into the net for a 2-1 edge.
That lead was short-lived. It took the visitors 12 ticks
to tie it up. Off the midfield touch, Haehn led Hamilton to
a wide-open look and her 18-yarder from the right post hit
the left post and ricocheted in for a 2-2 tie.
The defenses and the keepers made that draw stand up.
Miller City hosts Fort Jennings in a PCL tussle at 5 p.m.
today, while Jefferson visits Coldwater 11 a.m. Saturday.

Cougs outlast Jays in volleyball
By LARRY HEIING
DHI Media Correspondent
news@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — The climate inside the Robert A.
Arnzen gymnasium felt more
suited for a sand volleyball
match than a high school
matchup between the Van
Wert Cougars and St. John’s
Monday night.
In fact, the 85-degree temperature at match time made
the gym floor slippery like
a skating rink with the high
humidity levels and excess
sweat during the 5-set nonleague matchup.
The Jays won the first two
sets 25-22 and 25-23 before
Van Wert rallied to win the
last three 25-21, 25-15, 15-11.
The Lady Jays jumped out
to 13-8 lead in the opening game and extended the
lead with aces on serves by
sophomore Jessica Geise and
freshman Ellie Csukker. Van
Wert stopped the St. John’s
rally with a kill by Landrie
Koontz and a pair of unforced
errors by the Jays brought the
visitors within one at 18-17.
After a Van Wert return went
into the net, the Cougars took
the lead on back-to-back kills
by Koontz and an ace serve
by their Libero. With the
score knotted at 22, the Jays
recorded the final three points
on an ace by Colleen Schulte,
a little tapper by Geise and
the set-winner with Rebekah
Fischer’s kill shot to win
25-22.
Delphos continued to play
like a well-coached team
jumping out to a 11-5 lead
in the second game. An ace
serve by Van Wert’s Peyton
Fleming was followed by
a Maddie Pohlman kill for
St. John’s to keep the lead
at five. Van Wert rallied for
3 straight points lead by an
Alexis Dowdy slam to force
a time out by St. John’s coach
Carolyn Dammeyer. After the
break, both teams exchanged
points to even the score at 20.
St. John’s jumped back out in
front with another Pohlman
spike and a double hit call
on the Cougars. Van Wert
battled back on a return by

Van Wert’s Amanda Coplin sets up for the return over the block of Jessica
Geise of St. John’s Monday night at Arnzen Gymnasium. (DHI Media/Larry Heiing)
Koontz and a pair of shots
by Alexis Dowdy into the
empty floor on the Blue Jays’
defensive side. The young
Lady Jays remained poised
under pressure to hang over
for the game two victory
exclamated by an impressive
shot by Maddie Buettner for
the 25-23 win.
The back-and-forth battle
continued into the third set as
both teams fought to a tie at 5.
Van Wert took advantage of
unforced errors by St. John’s
to jump out to the largest lead
of the night at 21-12. Backto-back blocks for points by
Fischer and Buettner/Olivia
Kahney followed by two more
points for Fischer brought the
Jays within 21-16. Van Wert
hung on for the 25-21 victory
as the battled waged on in the
heat.
Van Wert coach Vicky
Smith said “we had a tough
time getting starting tonight.
We were reacting to St. John’s
and had a tough time getting
our serves over in the first

two games. Our girls are well
conditioned and were ready
to play under these extreme
conditions and it showed as
we started playing well in the
third game.”
The fourth game started
much like the others as the
score was tied at 10. A tapper
by Amanda Coplin put Van
Wert back in front and six
straight errors by St. John’s
extended the lead to 19-11.
The Cougars’ Dowdy scored
off a block and a kill but a
light touch by Saige Royer
on a tapper gave Van Wert
a decisive 25-15 victory for
force game 5.
The final game began with
great play at the net between
Geise for St. John’s and Van
Wert’s Dowdy with shots
back and forth between the
pair. As the game progressed,
the Cougars’ defense had dig
after dig to jump out to a 7-2
lead. A shot by Coplin rolled
off the net and fell in for a
point for Van Wert and mistakes by the Jays pushed the

lead to 10-3.
Suddenly a kill by
Madison Ellis and serve by
Buetter for an ace cut the
lead down at 10-6. But Van
Wert fought right back with
a block by Alexa Dunlap and
her snap serve fell in to push
the margin back out to six
points and the Cougars didn’t
look back to win the game
and match with a final score
of 15-11.
After the game, Blue Jay
coach Dammeyer was happy
with her team’s performance.:
“We came out strong tonight
and played really well for our
first action of the season.
Van Wert starting serving better in the third game
and we couldn’t break their
offense as we began to have
a lot of unforced errors. This
was a good learning experience for us as we had a lot of
underclassmen on the court.
Hopefully we will learn from
this and continue to get better.”
Van Wert remains perfect
on the young season at 3-0.

Wood helps Cubs beat Reds 3-0
By MARK SCHMETZER
Associated Press

CINCINNATI — Travis Wood pitched
six innings of two-hit ball against his former team for his first win in two months,
leading the Chicago Cubs to a
3-0 victory over Johnny Cueto
and the Cincinnati Reds on
Tuesday night.
Arismendy Alcantara hit a
two-run shot and Anthony Rizzo
connected for his 30th homer for
the Cubs, who have won four in a row for
the first time since June 30-July 4.
Cincinnati was shut out for the 12th
time this season. Cueto (15-8) struck out
eight in 6 1/3 innings in his second straight

loss after winning seven consecutive decisions.
Wood (8-11) struck out five and walked
one in his first victory since he pitched
eight innings in a 3-0 win at Philadelphia
on June 15. The left-hander, who made
the All-Star team last season,
was 0-6 with a 5.45 ERA in his
previous 12 starts.
He improved to 2-5 with a
3.30 ERA in nine career starts
against the Reds, who selected
him in the second round of the
2005 draft.
Neil Ramirez struck out the side in the
seventh, Pedro Strop pitched the eighth
and Hector Rondon finished for his 22nd
save.

CiCi Bellis, 15, youngest
US Open winner since ‘96
By HOWARD FENDRICH
Associated Press
NEW YORK — While
15-year-old American CiCi
Bellis was in the process of
stunning a Grand Slam finalist to become the youngest
player to win a U.S. Open
match since 1996, her father
did his best to conceal his
emotions courtside.
Like many a teen, CiCi
has strict rules for Dad in
public — even if his 1,208thranked daughter is pulling out
a back-and-forth 6-1, 4-6, 6-4
victory Tuesday over 12thseeded Dominika Cibulkova
in the first round at Flushing
Meadows.
“I’m told I cannot sigh and
I cannot move or say anything (because) that distracts
her, so I just have to sit there
like a Sphinx and just smile
and pray,” the elder Bellis,
Gordon, explained with a
deadpan delivery. “She hears
me when I sigh. So I can’t
sigh.”
Ah, yes, the joys of raising
kids. And make no mistake,
Bellis is a kid. She is homeschooled and about to start
10th grade. Her first memory
of the U.S. Open is watching
on TV while Maria Sharapova
played. She likes to hang out
at the mall with friends back
home in California. Asked

whether she’s a fan of pop
star Justin Bieber, Bellis
answered, “I used to like him
when I was younger, a couple
years ago.”
Her victory was part of
a 9-4 showing by American
women Tuesday, including
8-0 against unseeded opponents. In an all-American
match at night, another teen,
Taylor Townsend, lost quickly to two-time defending
champion Serena Williams
6-3, 6-1.
“We have such an amazing
future,” Williams said about
U.S. women’s tennis. “We have
so much to look forward to.”
Her win came after
Roger Federer beat Marinko
Matosevic 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (4)
with Michael Jordan sitting in
Federer’s guest box in Arthur
Ashe Stadium.
“Growing up, he was my
big sporting idol,” Federer
said. “Having him here is
unbelievably special.”
Aside from the Williams
sisters, American tennis fans
have not had much reason
to cheer for their own in the
latter stages of major tournaments in recent years. That’s
why the occasional run by a
young U.S. player — think
Melanie Oudin, wearing
“Believe” on her sneakers
in 2009 — stirs interest at
Flushing Meadows.

Rizzo went deep with two out in the
first, driving a 2-1 pitch into the seats in
right. The All-Star first baseman joined
Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton as the only
two National Leaguers with at least 30
home runs.
Starlin Castro, in his first game back
from the bereavement list, followed with
a single as the rain increased, forcing a
50-minute delay just five minutes into the
game.
Alcantara followed Matt Szczur’s
leadoff single in the seventh with his
fifth homer of the season and second in
two games. He also homered on Sunday
against Baltimore in Chicago’s final home
game before embarking on a 7-game,
6-day road trip.

Federal prosecutions not
easy in police shootings

The Allen County Veterans Service Commission and Department of Veterans
Affairs hosted the Veterans Benefits Fair on Tuesday at Lima’s Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center. Veterans from all walks of life and varying
branches of the military took advantage of the resources made available to
them. From left, Dave Slechster (Army), Bob Slechster (Marines), Ken Elwood
(Vietnam War veteran) and David Pinkerton (Navy) agreed the resource fair
was a great way to bring all the information together for veterans and they
learned a lot by talking with other veterans. (DHI Media/Stephanie Groves)

Vets find camaraderie,
unknown benefits at fair

LIMA — The Allen
County Veterans Service
Commission, in conjunction with the Department
of Veterans Affairs, hosted the Veterans Benefits
Fair on Tuesday at Lima’s
Veterans Memorial Civic
and Convention Center.
Veterans seeking assistance brought their DD
214/military separation
papers and any VA documentation and spoke with
benefit specialists about
claim information.
Veterans Dave Slechster
(Army), Bob Slechster
(Marines), Ken Elwood
(Vietnam War veteran) and
David Pinkerton (Navy)
agreed the resource fair
was a great way to bring

all the information together for veterans and they
learned a lot by talking
with each other.
“I came in to check on
healthcare and I’m finding
there are benefits available for my wife,” Elwood
said.
“The
Ve t e r a n s
Administration has done
a great job for me,” Bob
Slechster said. “I found
out that there is an informational branch here in
Lima from another vet.”
“This is a great outreach
to the veteran population,”
Pinkerton said. “I picked
up literature that I did not
know was out there.”
“This is the first time
I’ve talked about benefits
and I’ve been out of the
service a long time,” Dave
Slechster said. “They are
our benefits and some veterans are just unaware.”

VA representative Pete
Liviola said the fair was a
great opportunity to reach
out to all of the rural areas
in Northwest Ohio.
“Vets ask ‘How can I
get my claim moving?’”,
he said. “The backlog is
slowing dissipating and
we are 90-95 percent
paperless. We are here to
serve you and veterans are
absolutely entitled to their
benefits.”
Congressman
Jim
Jordan spoke to attendees
and thanked all the veterans that served.
“The military stands
for freedom and not just
for Americans, but for all
people across the globe,”
he said.
Allen
County
Commissioners Jay Begg,
Cory Noonan and Greg
Sneary also attended the
event.

WASHINGTON (AP) — As the Justice
Department probes the police shooting of
an unarmed 18-year-old in Missouri, history suggests there’s no guarantee of a
criminal prosecution, let alone a conviction.
Federal authorities investigating possible civil rights violations in the Aug. 9
death of Michael Brown in the St. Louis
suburb of Ferguson must meet a difficult
standard of proof, a challenge that has
complicated the path to prosecution in past
police shootings.
To build a case, they would need to
establish that the police officer, Darren
Wilson, not only acted with excessive
force but also willfully violated Brown’s
constitutional rights. Though the Justice
Department has a long history of targeting police misconduct, including after the
1991 beating of Rodney King, the high bar
means that many high-profile police shootings that have raised public alarm never
wound up in federal court.
“It’s a very difficult standard to meet,
and it really is satisfied only in the most
egregious cases,” said University of
Michigan law professor Samuel Bagenstos,
the former No. 2 official in the department’s civil rights division. “Criminal
enforcement of constitutional rights is not
something that is easily pursued. It really
requires building a case very carefully,
very painstakingly.”
Federal prosecutors, for instance,
declined to charge New York police officers who killed the unarmed Sean Bell in
2006 in a 50-shot barrage following his
bachelor party in Queens. The four New
York officers who in 1999 fired 41 shots
at Amadou Diallo, an unarmed African
immigrant, after they said they mistook his
wallet for a gun were acquitted during a
state trial and never faced federal prosecution for his killing.
More recently, the Justice Department
did not charge either of the officers who
shot and killed Miriam Carey, a 34-year-old
woman who last year drove into a White
House checkpoint and then led police on a
car chase toward the U.S. Capitol.
“Accident, mistake, fear, negligence
and bad judgment do not establish such a
criminal violation,” prosecutors wrote in
explaining their decision in that case.
In the Brown case, much will depend
on the specific facts of the confrontation,
which remain unclear. Police have said a
scuffle broke out after Wilson told Brown
and a friend to move out of the street and
onto a sidewalk. Police say Wilson was

After the group session, all attendees joined together
to explore key area assessments. Metzger said while
walking around listening to group discussions, she was
excited by the great conversations.
The first topic to be discussed was Business and
Community Development retention and the group
pointed out that the workforce is a very critical part of
the equation for Delphos and any business assessing the
possibilities of establishing itself here. The first step is
taking a survey of the city’s resources and find out what
Delphos is, compile the information and then work on
a solution.
The Welcome Information solutions consisted of
developing a community calendar, a task taken on by
the Delphos Area Chamber of Commerce previously
that garnered little feedback. An effort will be made
for the 2015 year where a booklet containing chamber
information, board members, Delphos history, information on parks and recreation and school information will
be included.
With Website Development, the strategy was for a
social message and past issues need to be left in the
past. Delphos needs to benchmark other cities’ websites. Whether they are charity or non-profits, Delphos
needs to see how they are promoting themselves.
Facebook allows companies to focus on posting pictures, flyers and albums. Twitter can be thought of a
24-hour conversation of breaking news updates on businesses and pertinent community information including

weather, school closings, community informational
items and traffic issues and road closures.
The Visitor and Tourism aspects of Delphos need
to be more balanced by incorporating unique events
to draw outside communities into the downtown area.
With only three major celebrations: the Fourth of July,
Hometown Christmas and Canal Days; engaging visitors, there’s room for a spring event, perhaps a cultural
event keeping the momentum going with music and
food combined with a twist specific to Delphos.
Other tourism ideas include historical Christmas
tours, church tours, a children’s museum, a new green
space where Cintas used to be, development of bike
trails and a historic gift shop filled with Route 66,
Route 30 and Lincoln Highway memorabilia and souvenirs.
The group discussing Commercial Real Estate said it
starts with good industry and communication from city
officials.
With Downtown Development, surveys should be
performed by going from business to business and asking about their concerns. Specialty shops continue to
thrive and not the businesses that used to line Main
Street. Another aspect is ridding downtown Delphos of
dilapidated buildings, renovating other structures and
giving people driving through town something “pretty”
to look at.
The public is welcome to attend the next meeting
which will be held at 6 p.m. on Sept. 30 at the Delphos
Eagles Lodge.

“We can buy all the materials —
at $30,000 — and put the waterline
construction out for bid,” Miller
said. “It would be $50,000 for the
labor.”
Councilman Tony Langhals said
then we can put it up for bid and
create a budget for starting the construction, maybe, six months done
the road.
“We’ll get the paperwork for
realistic numbers,” Miller said.
Council member Jerry Markward
asked if it were even in the village’s
budget.
“If we get the waterlines done
and get that behind us, we can concentrate on the sewer lines,” he said.
Council agreed to appropriate the
sewer construction in next year’s
budget and get an engineer hired to
draw up the specifications on the
sewer lines.
Board of Public Affairs members
Phil Hilvers and Dan Honigford
spoke with council about the new
guidelines for sump pump removal
from sanitary sewers including connections to storm sewers. There are
some residents who are not connected to the storm sewer tap and

pushed into his squad car and physically
assaulted. Some witnesses have reported
seeing Brown’s arms up in the air before
the shooting, an apparent sign of surrender.
An autopsy paid for by Brown’s family
concluded that he was shot six times, twice
in the head.
Investigators are working with a federal law that makes it illegal for officers to
abuse their power by willfully depriving a
person of his civil rights, such as the right
to be free from an unlawful police seizure.
The statute does not require an officer to
have been motivated by racial bias, but it
does mean that the officer cannot intentionally do something that the law prohibits.
But investigations are complicated by
the fact that police officers are given
latitude in their use of force, including in
circumstances where an officer reasonably
believed the force was necessary to capture
a dangerous fleeing felon or had a good
basis to fear his life was in imminent danger, said Rachel Harmon, a University of
Virginia law professor and former Justice
Department civil rights prosecutor.
“In order to prove that there was a
constitutional violation, the government
would have to prove that from a reasonable officer’s perspective, those circumstances didn’t exist and that a reasonable
officer wouldn’t believe that they existed,”
Harmon said, noting that the Supreme
Court has said courts should not apply a
“20/20 vision of hindsight” in evaluating
whether an officer used excessive force.
The civil rights statute in recent years
has been used to prosecute law enforcement officers for a wide range of conduct, including sexual assault, robbery
and shootings of unarmed civilians in
New Orleans in the chaotic aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina.
But because it can be difficult to prove
that an officer didn’t feel threatened during
a confrontation, a more common prosecution involves victims who were assaulted
while already in custody, such as Abner
Louima, the Haitian immigrant who in
1997 was beaten by officers and sodomized with a broomstick inside a New York
police precinct.
Dynamic confrontations, like the one
police say preceded the Ferguson shooting, are more difficult for prosecutors than
cases involving an “inmate who is handcuffed, or in a cell who gets beaten by a
corrections officer,” said David Weinstein,
a defense lawyer and former federal prosecutor in Miami.

they will now have until June 1,
2015, to tap into the public sanitary
sewer. The construction is at the
owner’s expense and the completed
work will be inspected by a village
employee.
Honigford
announced
that
hydrant flushing will take place
the latter part of September or the
first part of October. He also told
council the fire station remodel is
progressing.
“Some of the spouting was completely clogged, which may have
led to a back up onto the roof causing some of the roof damage,” he
explained.
“Look at installing gutter guards
to keep debris out,” he reasoned.
“Better to get it done with the new
spouting.”
Langhals wanted to make a
motion to ask the contractors who
originally bid on the sidewalk down
Route 66 from Sunset to the Library,
to re-bid the installment with the
intent to install the walkway as soon
as possible and continue to prioritize more sidewalk money for future
sidewalk projects.
“It’s a major, busy highway and
I believe it’s the most needed area,”
he said adamantly. “I see kids walk-

ing on the white line. It’s time.”
“I think we ought to take a look at
the overall project and put together
a program,” Altenburger said. “What
and how are we going to do it?”
Altenburger said the village
needs to put sidewalks throughout
town. School bus stops are also
really important.
Fiscal
O ff i c e r
Jeanne
Wannemacher explained and asked
council to approve:
• a resolution authorizing the
necessary tax levies and certifying
them with Putnam County;
• the CRA Residential (Community
Reinvestment Assessment) abatement for new homes at 50-percent
for five years;
• appropriations to amend and ask
the Putnam County Auditor to add
$30,000 to the Street Fund from the
General Fund;
• the transfer of $50,000 to the
Street Fund from the General Fund;
and
• approve the payment of $39,640
to Bluffton Paving for the work on
Walt and South East Canal Streets.
The next village council meeting
will be held at 7 p.m. on September
22 in council chambers.

(Continued from
page 1A)

Hardy also gave council
the results of an employment posting.
“We have received over
25 resumes for the village
administrator job opening
from the Ohio Municipal
site. This has been a very
good response; some
applicants from Vermont
and Texas, so it is a good
cross-section of those who
have applied,” Hardy said.
Jack Ulrich will be
the new zoning appeals
board member beginning
on Thursday and his term
will be until 2017.
Police
Chief
Dale
Metzger gave his report
for August. There were
253 calls for service, 16
traffic stops, six arrests
or citations, eight written

reports and 12 calls for
support for another officer.
The officers attended a training session on
Saturday for re-certification with equipment. They
also attended a school
meeting with all the teachers and staff along with
ACSO and American
Township.
“I will be looking to
fill two open part-time
officer positions. We also
received a request from
the Elida High School for
permission to have the
homecoming parade at 4
p.m. on Sept. 14,” Metzger
said.
The council approved
the homecoming parade.
The next meeting is
scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
Sept. 9.

Trivia

Answers to Monday’s questions:
Bubbles was the name of King of Pop Michael
Jackson’s pet chimpanzee.
There are 284 restrooms in the Pentagon in
Arlington, Va. The Pentagon was built with twice as
many bathrooms as necessary to comply with Virginia
segregation laws in effect at the time (1942), which
required separate facilities for “white” and “colored”
people.
Today’s questions:
How long should dinner be delayed for a late guest,
according to the most recent edition of Emily Post’s
Etiquette?
What extreme sport was inspired by a centuries-old
ritual performed by natives on the island of Pentecost,
in the South Pacific Republic or Vanuatu?
Answers in Thursday’s Herald.
Today’s joke:
Two elderly couples were enjoying friendly conversation when one of the men asked the other,
“Fred, how was the memory clinic you went to last
month?” “Outstanding,” Fred replied. “They taught
us all the latest psychological techniques: visualization, association, etc. It was great.” “That’s great!
And what was the name of the clinic?” Fred went
blank. He thought and thought, but couldn’t remember. Then a smile broke across his face and he asked,
“What do you call that flower with the long stem and
thorns?”
“You mean a rose?”
“Yes, that’s it!” He turned to his wife, “Rose, what
was the name of that memory clinic?”

recovered.
The next four years
were a series of court
visits for custody
of our child and
eventually a divorce.
Last year, his mother
began
requesting
visits with our son.
I was happy about it
because I have tried to
be accommodating to
my ex and his family
regarding our son.
Finally, late last
year, I called my ex
to ask if we could sit
down and discuss our
son (something we
had never done). We
have met twice during
the last two weeks,
and each time had
long
conversations
about
everything.
(Our son, our past,
our
relationship.)
Many misconceptions
were cleared up, and
it’s obvious that we
both have made many
necessary
changes
within ourselves.
Now I’m confused
about what comes next.
Speaking with him has
brought back so many
feelings. Prior to the
attack, our stress levels
had been high and
our
communication
was terrible, but there
had been no physical
violence. I’m not
sure if this is the
universe giving us an
opportunity to give
the family we started

ex can become good
friends and parent your
son in a congenial,
cooperative fashion.
What comes next
might be that you
rekindle your romance.
Or it might be that you
get back together and
he assaults you again.
If your ex has sought
help for his drinking

Today’s
Horoscope
By Eugenia Last

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Blondie

Your intuition will not let
you down. Coming to terms
with past regrets, your present
situation and your plans
for the future will give you
the confidence you need to
succeed. Others may question
your beliefs and plans, but
you’re the one in charge.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22) -- Don’t try to keep up with
what others are doing. Spend
time on your own projects
and take things as they come.
If you trust in your abilities,
you’ll rise to the top.

For Better or Worse

Beetle Bailey

Pickles

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23) -- If you are doubtful
about a new offer, reserve
judgment until you have all
the relevant information. Ask
questions and find out what
you are dealing with before
making a commitment.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 22) -- A partnership
will develop and complement
what you have to offer, if you
are assertive enough. Be clear
about boundaries and honest
about your expectations. Move
forward with confidence.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- Make a point not to
lend, borrow or gamble. You
will be further ahead if you
observe without participating.
Love is on the rise, and
romance will make your day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) -- Don’t jump at the
first offer that comes your way.
Wait until you find the most
attractive deal and negotiate
until it fits your agenda. A
savvy show of knowledge will
lead to success.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 19) -- Financial benefits
are possible if you take
advantage of a promising deal.
You may learn some valuable
lessons by helping take care
of another’s financial affairs.
Plan a romantic evening.

Garfield

PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) -- Don’t be fooled by
appearances. The person or
deal that seems so attractive at
the moment will turn out much
worse than anticipated.

ARIES (March 21-April
19) -- Don’t settle for second
best. Your leadership qualities
can propel you to the top of
your career, so make sure that
everyone knows you mean
business.

TAURUS (April 20-May

boost your confidence. Look
after details that bring you
closer to your goals. Once you
feel that you’ve achieved what
you want, you will be able to
help others.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20) -- Hard work is good
for you, but once in a while
you need to take a break.
Open your home to friends
and colleagues for a night of
socializing or networking.

CANCER (June 21July 22) -- Stay calm and
avoid coming on too strong.
A demanding approach with
others will alienate you. Keep
emotions in check and avoid
discord.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
-- Someone you have worked
with in the past will be the key
to a lucrative partnership now.
Your moneymaking ideas,
propelled by experience and
expertise, will take flight if
you collaborate.
