2104 Van Wert County Fair is open
BY ED GEBERT
DHI Media Editor
egebert@timesbulletin.com
VAN WERT — One hundred fifty-
eight. That’s how many times Van
Wert County has seen the opening day
of the Van Wert County Fair. The day
has changed many times since 1855,
the location has changed, the number
of displays have changed and the dress
of the fair-goers has certainly changed
but what has not changed is the fact
that opening day is widely-anticipated
and widely-celebrated.
Day One of Fair number 158 went
well on Wednesday. Temperatures,
which had been on the hot and
muggy side earlier in the week,
moderated to a high of a bearable
83 degrees just before 4 p.m. with
a relative humidity of 65 percent.
However, many people were still
able to break a sweat walking the
midway and searching for their
favorite traditional food vendors.
Landeck students try out green thumbs
Landeck Elementary School students and staff planted a garden at the end of last school year as a
school project. Over the summer, the staff took turns tending the garden. The students were excited
to see how much the garden grew over the summer when they came back to school this week. Some
of the teachers treated their students with snacks made from the garden such as salsa or carrots.
Above: Students gather in the pumpkin patch. They include Audrey Violet, Jaiden Mossing, Griffin
Mericle, Bailey Hile, Luke Rode, Kellen Carder, Gavin Hageman and Sheldyn Fetter. This is the second
year for the project. (Submitted photo)
Ottoville

carnival
DHI Media Staff Reports

OTTOVILLE — On
Saturday and Sunday, 1,100 vol-
unteers will grease the wheels for
the 52nd annual Ottoville Park
Carnival. Activities will begin at
9 a.m. on Saturday and will end
at midnight on Sunday.
Coordinator Joe Moreno said
because of the extended week-
end, many former residents
return for the festivities.
“We see a lot people come
back to Ottoville for the carnival
because they get that extra day,”
Moreno said. “It’s like a home-
coming of sorts.”
In his fourth year of a leader-
ship role for the event, Moreno
said the committee has really lis-
tened to sponsor and participant
feedback when planning for the
next year.
“We talk to a lot people dur-
ing the event and then look at
Facebook and other social media
to see what everyone’s talking
about after,” he said. “We find out
what we did well, what we fell
short on and what people would
like to see us offer.”
The main attractions for the
2014 Ottoville Park Carnival
include Detroit’s Fifty Amp Fuse
performing on the main stage
from 8:30 p.m. to midnight
Saturday. Fifty Amp Fuse is mak-
ing a repeat appearance for this
year’s event and will again per-
form a life multimedia spectacu-
lar that celebrates six decades of
both American and British pop/
rock hits.
Kiwanis provides player benches for stadium
The Kiwanis Club donated new benches for the home and visitor sides of

A motorcyclist received minor injuries on Tuesday afternoon after falling

INFORMATION SUBMITTED
VENEDICIA — The annual Gymanfa Ganu
or Welsh Festival of Song will be held
Sunday at the Salem Presbyterian Church
at Venedocia. A light supper will be served
from 4-6 p.m. for a free will donation and the
program will begin at 7 p.m. The church is
handicap accessible.
The tradition can be traced back to the 13th
century in Wales where the singing of hymns
in four-part harmony began. It has been an
important part of the Venedocia Church’s life
since about 1915. Visitors return every year
from many states to renew friendships and
to hear the thrilling sound of the grand old
hymns being sung in four-part harmony by
several hundred people.
The conductor this year will be Trefor
Williams. He was born in Wales and speaks
the language fluently. He was raised in the
Welsh tradition of total cultural immersion
in music within his family, community, and
country. He has been performing on stage
since the age of 3. His involvement within
the competitive Welsh Eisteddfod has earned
him many awards including as conductor of
his male chorus Cor Meibion yr Eilf at the
National Eisteddfod of Wales. He served
for 30 years as a member and bandmaster of
the Trefor Brass Band, a 30 member ensem-
ble which appeared at the North American
National Gymanfa Ganu in Milwaukee in
1997.
After moving to Milwaukee
in 1998, he has worked as
musical director at several
churches in the area, as chair
of the music department at
Milwaukee Montessori School
and as musical director of
Festival City Brass. In 2006,
he joined with a like-minded
group of enthusiastic singers
and established Milwaukee
Metropolitan Voices. He has
now produced and directed
over 30 shows for this group,
and he continues as Artistic
and Musical Director. He is
a frequently invited conduc-
tor and soloist at many Welsh
American Cymanfaoedd and
events across the United States
from Philadelphia to Los
Angeles. Williams specializes
in Welsh language music. From
his own voice studio in Milwaukee, he teach-
es and coaches many accomplished young and
adult singers. Trefor and his wife Barbara are
pleased to have been invited once again to the
outstanding Gymanfa Ganu in Venedocia.
The tenor soloist will be Joe Consiglio
from Chicago. He studied voice at Washington
University, earning a graduate degree in
vocal performance. Moving
to New York City, he stud-
ied with acclaimed voice
teacher Cornelius Reid. He
has appeared in roles with
the Union Avenue Opera, the
Midland Reparatory Opera,
and the University of Houston
Opera. He has also appeared
as a soloist with the Bach
Society and with the Trinity
Presbyterian Church both in
St. Louis. This will be his sec-
ond appearance as the soloist
for the Venedocia Gymanfa
Ganu. He lives in Evergreen
Park, a suburb of Chicago,
with his wife Sarah, a Van
Wert native, and children,
Anthony and Charlotte. Joe
Consiglio is the son-in-law of
David & Ann Rees.
Organist for the event will
be Connie O’Neill and pianist will be Joyce
Morris. Rev. Thomas Emery is the pastor of
the church. For more information, call Jean
Owens at 419-667-3523 or email joytrips@

Safety coalition reminds motorists to drive sober
INFORMATION SUBMITTED
LIMA — The Lima Allen County Safe
Community Coalition wants to remind motorists to
“Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”.
Local law enforcement, as well as their state and
national partners, will be out in full force over the
holiday weekend to enforce impaired driving laws.
In 2012, more than 10,000 people died in high-
way crashes across the nation, involving a driver or
motorcycle operator with an illegal blood alcohol
concentration of .08 or higher; that is one person
every 51 minutes.
In Ohio during the same time, 470 people died,
and in Allen County three died. Across the nation
during 2012, 38 percent of all fatalities involved one
or more impaired drivers and over the 2012 Labor
Day weekend 147 people died.
We can prevent even one more person from
dying, or being seriously injured, in an impaired
driving crash – it is up to us to choose to make our
roads safer. If you choose to drink … choose not to
drive.
— Be responsible and don’t risk it … you will
be caught.
— If you plan to drink, choose a non-drinking
designated driver before going out.
— Take transit, a taxicab, or ask a sober friend to
drive you home.
— Spend the night where the activity is being
held.
— Report impaired drivers to law enforcement.
— Always buckle up – it’s your best defense
against an impaired driver.

Tips to minimize environmental
impacts on water quality
BY JAMES HOORMAN
Putnam County Extension
Ag Educator
news@delphosherald.com
Culman, Dayton, King and Labarge,
Ohio State University specialists (CORN
Newsletter, 2014-28), say “Current Ohio
field research to minimize phosphorus
losses at the edge of the field should
start with the following recommenda-
tions to maximize productivity while
minimizing environmental impacts on
water quality.”
Avoid overloading soils. Soil test
and follow tri-state fertilizer recommen-
dations. Where soil test levels are above
40 ppm Bray P1 or 58 ppm Mehlich III-
ICP, do not apply additional phosphorus
in the corn-soybean rotation. These soil
test levels require no additional fertil-
izer, according to the Tri-State Fertilizer
recommendations. Fertilizing soils test-
ing above these levels increases risk of
P in runoff and tile drainage.
Avoid winter application. Eliminate
surface application of manure or fertil-
izer to frozen or snow-covered fields.
Frozen ground is ground that is frozen
to the degree that tillage is not possible.
Surface applied manure or fertilizer is
subject to runoff events that may occur
before the ground thaws and allows
nutrients to bind to soil.
Avoid surface application of fertil-
izer/manure. Surface applications of
phosphorus are subject to higher loss if
runoff producing rainfall events happen
close to application. Placement of nutri-
ent below the surface of the soil reduces
loss. If tillage is planned in the crop rota-
tion, P applications should be applied
prior to the tillage and till before a rain
event. Full width tillage has the potential
to increased soil erosion and total phos-
phorus losses. New placement tools or
strategies need to be implemented that
place P below the surface with mini-
mal soil disturbance. Until these tools
become available, use banded applica-
tion or the minimal amount of tillage to
mix nutrient in the soil.
Minimize erosion. Appropriate con-
servation practices should be imple-
mented to minimize erosion. Maintain
30 percent cover as crop residue/cover
crop. Filter strips, grassed waterways
and water diversion structures are appro-
priate tools.
Slow the movement of water.
Surface water flows from fields directed
to tile via standpipes should be convert-
ed to blind inlets. As risk loss potential
increases for a field consideration should
be given for edge of field treatments
which control water movement or treat
water as it is leaving the site. Drainage
water management control structures,
in ditch treatments such as two stage
ditches and other stream practices can
reduce loading.
Know your field’s risk. Soil test P,
field proximity to water and soil hydro-
logic class impacts edge of field losses
of phosphorus. The NRCS Ohio P Risk
index provides a risk of loss index and
should be used as part of the develop-
ment of a Nutrient Management Plan to
assess the individual field risk.
Strive to build soil quality. Soil con-
dition is a mitigating factor. Increasing
the water infiltration by reducing
compaction and improving soil struc-
ture increase water retention, nutrient
cycling, crop rooting capacity and crop
yield.”
Ed Lentz (Corn Newsletter 2014-28)
said “a soil analysis will tell whether
a field needs lime to raise the soil pH.
Lime recommendations are generally
given as tons per acre. ODA evaluates
all liming sources sold commercially
in Ohio to determine its effectiveness
to neutralize soil acidity and is report-
ed as the Effective Neutralizing Power
(ENP) expressed as pounds per ton.
The ENP value incorporates all quality
components of lime: purity (calcium and
magnesium content), particle size, and
water content. The ENP allows produc-
ers to compare different liming sources
regardless of differences in purity, fine-
ness of grind or water content between
sources.
“To determine the amount of lime
needed with the ENP value use the fol-
lowing equation: Tons of lime material
= (Lime rate from soil test) * (2000/
ENP)
“The actual cost of a lime source may
also be used with ENP by the following
equation: Cost ($/acre) = (Lime rate
from soil test/ (ENP/2000)) * ($/ton)
“Economics and the ability to even-
ly apply the material should be the
primary factors in selecting a lime
source. If the soil test magnesium lev-
els are less than 50 ppm (100 lbs) then
dolomitic lime should be use since it
will cost considerably less than other
magnesium sources. Hi cal (calcitic)
lime should be used if the percentage
of base saturation of calcium from the
soil analysis is equal to or lower than
the percentage of base saturation of
magnesium.
“Lime recommendations from soil
testing laboratories assume a soil incor-
poration depth of eight inches. For no-
till fields or lime left on the surface,
assume 4 inch incorporation. Adjust
your lime rate by the following equa-
tion: Lime rates for < 8 inches incor-
poration = (Soil test lime rate/8) * lime
incorporation depth”
Program to enlist jail inmates to process food
ELKHART, Ind. (AP) — An effort to
bring more locally grown food to local
tables year-round is gathering momen-
tum and could receive a boost from jail
inmates.
While stressing the idea is just in its
infancy, Elkhart County Commissioner
and farmer Mike Yoder, Sheriff Brad
Rogers, Church Community Services
executive director Rod Roberson and
Middlebury Community Schools per-
sonnel director Delores Merrick say they
have met recently to discuss the concept
and are eager to pursue it further.
Each of the individuals likes the idea
for their own reasons.
In a pilot project that could begin
next year, fruits and vegetables grown in
the area would be processed by Elkhart
County Jail inmates in the facility’s large
commercial-grade kitchen, which is unde-
rutilized because the facility was built to
accommodate a much larger jail popula-
tion than what currently exists. Inmates
would process and package the produce,
and it would be frozen at the jail until peo-
ple in the community are ready to eat it.
Produce would be flash-frozen, a pro-
cess that uses liquid nitrogen and pre-
serves the cell structure and nutritional
value of the food during freezing, while
alleviating concerns of pathogen growth
that can result from canning. Yoder told
The Elkhart Truth the ultimate goal
is to buy a mobile flash-freezing unit,
which can cost up to $70,000 and could
perhaps be funded with tax-increment
financing district revenue. But before
that step, the jail’s conventional freezers
would be used as the rest of the program
kinks are worked out.
Rogers said in the pilot project,
inmates might start learning how to pro-
cess the food by practicing on some fresh
green beans acquired from a wholesaler.
“We need to have enough capacity to
justify buying that kind of equipment,”
Yoder said. “There are a lot of logistics we
need to get figured out before we get to the
flash freezer, and that’s what we want to
do with the pilot project next year.”
Yoder said a viable local farm-to-
table system with flash freezing would
expand the market for local farmers
throughout the year and eliminate the
waste that occurs with surplus harvest.
For his part, Rogers thinks he’ll have no
problem finding inmates willing to do the
work. He can’t pay them cash, but he can
shave a little time from their sentences and
give them some job skills that could help
them find employment after they’re released.
“We have a correctional facility full
of people who have taken from the com-
munity,” Rogers said. “With this, they
can give back to the community.”
The sheriff said the workers would be
carefully selected, as kitchen inmate jobs
are now, from inmates who’ve committed
“low-level” crimes and aren’t escape risks.
“They’re not hazards to the food
workers that are in there now,” Rogers
said. “People, when you get them off
drugs and alcohol, are good workers.”
Rogers said the jail kitchen freezers
must run anyway, so there would be no
new cost to taxpayers.
“I can foresee that we can do this
without any tax dollars being spent,”
he said, “beyond what’s already being
spent for normal operations.”
Rogers said he realizes that some in
the community might not like the idea of
eating food that’s been prepared by con-
victs. In 2000, before he became sheriff, the
Meals on Wheels program stopped having
the jail kitchen prepare its meals because
subscriptions to the program were declining
amid those concerns, Rogers said.
“I would certainly eat it, I wouldn’t have
any problem, but that’s a marketing issue
they’ll have to deal with,” Rogers said.
But Merrick, the Middlebury
Community Schools personnel director,
said the inmates’ involvement wouldn’t
bother her. Merrick wants to get locally
grown fruits and vegetables into the
corporation’s cafeterias and sees this as
a potential way to do that.
Last year, she applied for a grant from
the United States Department of Agriculture
that would have provided $36,000 to devel-
op a school garden and relationships with
area farmers to supply fresh produce. She
didn’t win the grant but remains interested
in her initial goal, and she hopes the cor-
poration could start buying locally grown
food for the 2015-2016 school year.
Aside from having more access to
fresh produce, Merrick likes the educa-
tional component.
“We border Michigan, the LaGrange
County line, Goshen and Concord
schools,” she said. “Even though we’re
rural, a lot of kids don’t know where
their food comes from. We’re not an
inner city school where kids don’t know
that or appreciate it. Instead of always
relying on other people, you can pro-
duce your own food.”
Ohio’s new conservation
program to improve
Lake Erie water quality
INFORMATION SUBMITTED
PUTNAM COUNTY — Area farmers and landowners are
encouraged to participate in a new conservation program that
will help to improve water quality in Lake Erie and 5,000 miles
of streams by reducing nutrient runoff.
Authorized by Senate Bill 150 that was signed into law by
Governor John R. Kasich, the Lake Erie Nutrient Reduction
Program (LE NRP) will assist farmers in installing best man-
agement practices that keep nutrients on fields, improve water
quality and combat harmful algal blooms. The program will
be supervised locally by the Putnam County Soil and Water
Conservation District. Working with the Ohio Department of
Natural Resources (ODNR) through the Ohio Clean Lakes
Initiative, $1.25 million will be available to producers in 27
Ohio counties. ODNR has already helped farmers implement
best management practices on more than 40,000 acres in the
Lake Erie watershed.
“Farmers have shown us they’re serious about improving
Lake Erie,” said ODNR Director James Zehringer. “ODNR is
pleased to partner with Ohio’s local soil and water conservation
districts to get more practices installed as soon as possible.”
“We all have a part to play to improve water quality in
Lake Erie,” said Albert Maag. “Our district is excited to use
our existing relationships with Ohio’s farmers to improve the
health of one of our state’s greatest natural resources.”
The LE NRP is a voluntary program that reimburses farm-
ers to plant cover crops or install drainage management devic-
es such as controlled drainage structures or blind tile inlets.
In addition to reducing runoff of nutrients and pesticides the
practices will allow farmers to manage and maintain the water
from their fields after harvest and during the growing season,
ultimately enhancing production. Cropland enrolled must be
approved by local SWCD technical staff and ODNR Division
of Soil and Water Resources area engineers. Counties included
in the new program are: Allen, Ashland, Auglaize, Crawford,
Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Hardin, Henry, Huron, Lucas,
Lorain, Marion, Medina, Mercer, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam,
Richland, Sandusky, Seneca, Shelby, Van Wert, Williams,
Wood and Wyandot. Starting immediately, landowners in these
counties can sign up for the program. ODNR has committed
$1.25 million to the program and anticipates planting cover
crops on up to 25,000 acres as well as installing more than
300 structures. This funding is in addition to the $3.5 million
already appropriated through the Ohio Clean Lakes initiative
for best management practices and water quality monitoring.

NFL suspends Browns star
WR Gordon for 2014 season
By TOM WITHERS
Associated Press
CLEVELAND — Josh Gordon’s
wait is over and so is his 2014 season.
Now the star wide receiver’s career is
in peril.
The Browns learned Wednesday that
Gordon’s indefinite suspension by the
NFL has been upheld and he will miss
at least 16 games for another violation
of the league’s substance abuse policy.
A repeat drug offender, Gordon had
appealed the penalty, hoping it would
be reduced so he could play this season.
The NFL, though, came down hard
on Gordon, who must now pay the price
for stepping out of bounds.
The league announced that arbitrator
Harold Henderson supported Gordon’s
yearlong suspension for marijuana use.
The Pro Bowler, who was subject to
more frequent testing, will begin serv-
ing his suspension immediately and the
league announced in its statement that
his “eligibility for reinstatement will be
determined following the 2014 season.”
In the meantime, Gordon is not
allowed to practice with the team, attend
meetings or other club functions.
Browns’ general manager Ray Farmer
expressed some disappointment at the
decision but said the team has no choice
but to move ahead without Gordon.
“While we may have strong feelings
on the timing and the process of this
decision, we have also consistently com-
municated that we will focus on what we
can control in our day to day approach,”
Farmer said in a statement. “Right now
that is preparing our team for the 2014
season and at the same time, supporting
Josh however we are able under NFL
guidelines during his suspension.”
The Browns had feared for months
this would be the outcome and now
that it’s official, the club will
have to somehow make up for
the league-leading 1,646 yards,
18.9 yards per catch and nine
touchdowns Gordon produced
last season.
“I’d like to apologize to
my teammates, coaches, the
Cleveland Browns organization
and our fans,” Gordon said in
a statement. “I am very disap-
pointed that the NFL and its
hearing office didn’t exercise
better discretion and judgment in
my case. I would like to sincerely thank
the people who have been incredibly
supportive of me during this challenging
time, including my family, my agent, my
union, my legal team and the Cleveland
Browns staff.”
While he’s out, Gordon, who served
a 2-game suspension for a drug violation
last season, will need to pass drug tests,
comply with treatment and apply for
reinstatement with Commissioner Roger
Goodell before he plays again. Gordon
could possibly return inside a year if he
stays clean.
Gordon met with league officials
in New York on Aug. 4 to appeal his
suspension. As the days past, there was
growing speculation he might not be
punished to the letter of the collective
bargaining agreement. But Henderson
sided with the league’s initial ruling
after an exhaustive process.
The Browns have known Gordon
could be banished for some time and
they’ve been eager for a resolution to
his case, which hung over their train-
ing camp. He continued
to practice and played in
Cleveland’s first three exhi-
bition games.
Gordon fought the sus-
pension by hiring attorney
Maurice Suh to represent
him at the appeal hearing.
Suh, who had successfully
gotten a suspension reduced
for Seattle cornerback
Richard Sherman, argued
that Gordon tested positive
for marijuana due to second-
hand smoke. Gordon’s representatives
also said test results of his samples were
inconsistent and should be thrown out.
There was speculation the league
might go softer on Gordon following the
public outcry after Baltimore running
back Ray Rice was suspended for two
games on a domestic violence charge.
Instead, the league put Gordon on the
sideline for all 16 games and will wait
to see how he behaves before deciding
whether to let him back.
Gordon didn’t help his cause with
two legal issues as his case dragged
on. He was charged with drunken driv-
ing after his arrest in Raleigh, North
Carolina, on July 5. In May, he was
stopped for speeding in Strongsville,
Ohio, and one of the passengers in his
car was cited for marijuana possession.

Kenseth likes title chances despite lack of wins
Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Matt Kenseth was
a 5-time winner this time last year and an
established championship threat. He doesn’t
feel any less confident about his title
chances this season even though he
has not visited Victory Lane.
Kenseth goes into Atlanta Motor
Speedway this weekend winless but
ranked a solid fifth in the Sprint Cup
standings. With just two races remain-
ing to set the 16-driver Chase for
the Sprint Cup Championship field,
Kenseth should make it in on points and
doesn’t feel like he needs to go for broke
to get a win in the next two weeks.
“When you try harder than your
hardest, that’s when you always get
in trouble. That’s when you wreck,”
Kenseth said. “I don’t know that we even need
a win. I believe in momentum, to a certain
point, but I don’t necessarily need a win. I’d
just like to have two solid weeks.”
The field will be reset following the Sept.
6 race at Richmond and Kenseth believes his
Joe Gibbs Racing team is far more prepared
for a run at the title than they were a year ago.
That may seem strange considering
Kenseth had a dream debut season in the No.
20 Toyota, which he drove to a series-high
seven wins while taking Jimmie Johnson to
the wire before Johnson captured his sixth
title. But Kenseth is currently only 25 points
behind third-place driver Brad Keselowski,
a 3-time winner this season, and he points
to wrecks at Sonoma, Pocono and
Michigan for not having him closer
to the top of the standings.
So what needs to change?
Not much, according to Kenseth.
He doesn’t think his team is very
far off from Hendrick Motorsports
and Team Penske and they’ve
excelled at finishing higher than they
should. He doesn’t believe he had a
third-place car at Bristol last week
but landed there through strategy
when he found himself in contention
for the win near the end of the race.
“If we can just get that little bit
more we need, I feel like everything is in
place as good, or in some ways better, than it
was last year,” Kenseth added. “I feel like our
pit stops are better than they were last year.
Confidence and execution and planning are
better than they were last year. Everything
is right there, if we can just get that little bit
extra out of our cars that I know we need, I
feel like the rest of it is in place and we can
put together a string of races and be very com-
petitive and hopefully contend.”

Gordon learns his
fate and it isn’t nice
By JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
Finally, the National Football League has come
down with the expected calendar-year-long suspension
of the Cleveland Browns gifted but troubled (sound
familiar?) wide receiver, Josh Gordon.
I really wonder why it took the NFL that long — it
must have seemed like years, especially for Browns’
fans — to come to a decision.
How many times must a guy screw up before he
gets set down?
To claim it was second-hand marijuana smoke
seemed, to say the least, an interesting legal move.
At worst, it seemed it was a “don’t blame me/it
wasn’t my fault I was with these guys/I didn’t know
what they were doing when they lit that match or
flicked that lighter and I smelled something funny”
stratagem that only a … er … dolt would have accept-
ed.
Maybe the NFL’s totally blown 2-game suspension
of running back Ray Rice — forget everything else;
that was ridiculous — also had something to do with
the wait.
Supposedly, the NFL is making changes in its
player-conduct policy to deal with it but apparently,
Rice won’t be affected.
As far as Gordon, you hope for his sake he gets
some help and he can return next year.
However, perhaps it opens up another can of worms.
They just did a survey of players — apparently only
82 guys responded — who believe marijuana is no
worse than alcohol.
I also have read articles that there is a move among
some players — it seems to be growing, too — to ask
the NFL to allow marijuana use to deal with the pain
issue, especially since two states (Washington and
Colorado) have legalized it.
We shall see where that goes but if something hap-
pens quickly, you think perhaps Mr. Gordon will ask
the NFL to reconsider?
Hmmmm.

No reason to feel sorry for Furyk
By DOUG FERGUSON
Associated Press
PARAMUS, N.J. — The good news for Jim Furyk is
that people finally stopped talking about his golf swing
that only a mother could love and a father could teach.
Now it’s whether he knows how to win.
Forgotten are his 16 victories on the PGA Tour. Among
full-time players, only Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson,
Vijay Singh, Davis Love III and Ernie Els have won
more times. Furyk has a major championship. He has
played on nine straight Ryder Cup teams, one short of
the U.S. record held by Mickelson. And per-
haps more impressive than his $60 million
in career earnings is that at age 44, he is the
highest-ranked American in the world.
He’s not in a rut on the golf course. He’s
in a rut when he talks to the media.
Since his last victory in 2010 at the Tour
Championship, Furyk has been in front eight
times going into the final round and has not
converted. The most recent occasion was
Sunday at The Barclays. He was tied for the
lead with Jason Day. Fifteen players were
separated by three shots going into the final
round, which is like having no lead at all. It
was anyone’s tournament to win. Just not his.
So when he was asked about another
Sunday when he didn’t “punch it in,” Furyk
punched back.
“I feel like every time I go to the press room, I under-
stand the questions coming and I feel like we’re in a
morgue,” he replied. “Like everyone is looking at me
with this blank stare and they ask me depressing ques-
tions. And they bring up the Ryder Cup the last time (a
singles loss to Sergio Garcia) and we go through Akron
(a double bogey on the 18th hole) … and I leave there
like I lost my dog.
“It’s golf. I didn’t die out there today. I don’t expect
anyone to feel sorry for me.”
Furyk doesn’t have a great record as a closer. Not
many do. Even as Furyk was fighting to stay in the hunt
as he made the turn, Shawn Stefani spoke for just about
every tour player when he said, “I picked the worst
sport for winning.”
Love has 20 career victories, including a major. He
holed the winning putt the last time the Americans won
the Ryder Cup on European soil.
Love also had a stretch once that was similar to
what Furyk is going through now. He went six straight
tournaments over three years when he didn’t win after
taking at least a share of the lead going into the final
round. In his last 12 chances, Love converted only two
of them.
Not everyone can be Woods. No one is.
Part of the problem for Furyk — and so many oth-
ers — is that Woods set a standard that no one should
be held against, whether it’s his untouchable record as
a closer (54-4 on the PGA Tour), making the cut in 142
consecutive tournaments over seven years or winning the
career Grand Slam twice before he turned
30.
And part of the problem is perception.
There’s no harm in criticizing Furyk for
having eight consecutive chances without
cashing in. Furyk knows as well as anyone
in golf that a player is judged by his score.
It’s that simple. There are explanations. No
one wants to hear excuses, and Furyk rarely
offers any.
What’s amazing is that he’s had that many
chances.
Furyk is a pea shooter in an era of heavy
artillery. Golf is about power and has been
for the majority of his career. He still has
been among the top players for two decades.
Even now, at age 44, he finished No. 3 in the
Ryder Cup standings.
A top player who considers himself a friend suggested
Furyk wouldn’t be able to sustain a high level of play
on the PGA Tour for much longer. There were too many
players who were young, hungry, polished and power-
ful. That was four years ago. Furyk had chances in two
majors since.
Furyk recalls one writer who asked him in 2006 if the
game was passing him by. When he won the FedEx Cup
in 2010, he saw the writer and smiled.
He’s not out to prove anything. He is trying to win tourna-
ments. And he is being reminded more often than he’d like
that it’s not easy and never has been. He’s also not trying to
lash out at the media.
“I understand why y’all ask the questions,” he added. “I
guess I want everyone to know that I’m like, ‘God, this is
kind of a sad conversation.’ I want to walk in there happy. I
guess I’ve got to win to do that. So if and when it happens,
I’ll have a big smile on my face.”
Buckeyes expect Navy’s
offense to be a handful
By RUSTY MILLER
Associated Press
COLUMBUS — It’s already dif-
ficult enough to play Navy because of
the tough, dedicated and disciplined
players demanded by any service acad-
emy.
“These guys are guys who are trained
to be fearless and they’re trained to
be relentless,” Ohio State linebacker
Joshua Perry said. “So we know that we
have to go full-go the whole game. Are
we prepared to play 60 minutes? Yeah.”
But there’s more. On top of that,
No. 5 Ohio State must get ready for
the Midshipmen’s lethal and unique
offense when they meet on Saturday in
Baltimore.
Navy is one of the few full-time
practitioners of the triple-option left at
the college level.
Last year, Ohio State’s defense was
riddled in consecutive losses to end
the season after a 24-game winning
streak. Cornerback Doran Grant was
asked whether he was worried about
how good the pass defense would be
this season.
“That’s not what we’re worried
about,” he replied. “We’re worried
about beating Navy. That’s what we’ve
been focused on this training camp.
They have a unique style of playing
offense.”
The Buckeyes, who are opening
their 125th season, have an idea what
they’re up against. Navy came into
Ohio Stadium to open the 2009 season
against an Ohio State team that would
end up going 11-2, winning the Big Ten
and then beating No. 7 Oregon in the
Rose Bowl.
And the Midshipmen almost left
Columbus with a victory.
Navy cut a 13-point halftime defi-
cit to two with 2:23 left — and had a
2-point conversion pass to tie it. But
Ricky Dobbs’ throw was picked off
by linebacker Brian Rolle and
he returned it for two points
the other way to seal a 31-27
victory.
The current Midshipmen,
coming off a 9-4 season which
included a win in the Armed
Forces Bowl, still follow the same
offensive philosophy under seventh-
year head coach Ken Niumatalolo.
“We’ve got to try to find every edge
and do everything we can,” he said
earlier this week of the matchup with
the Buckeyes.
Navy has players who might not
be as big or as fast as those at Top-25
powerhouses but it levels the playing
field by using the option. The read-
and-react offense, predicated on split-
second decisions, sterling execution
and quickness, is unique in many ways.
“We feel we have a wrinkle for
every (question),” offensive coordina-
tor Ivan Jasper said with a chuckle.
“Whether it’s going to work or not,
we’ll see.”
Junior quarterback Keenan Reynolds
leads an offense that was No. 2 in the
Football Bowl Subdivision last year
in rushing at 325.4 yards per game.
Reynolds ran for 1,346 yards and 31
touchdowns.
“He’s their guy,” Perry said. “He’s
a guy who isn’t necessarily a burn-
er, speedwise, but he has really good
vision and he knows where the seams
are. Once he puts his foot on the ground
and he gets vertical, that’s what he
likes to do. We have to take really good
angles. We can’t overrun anything.”
Ohio State coach Urban
Meyer is aware of and wary of
Reynolds.
“The Navy coaches and some
people I’ve talked to think that
he’s the best that they’ve ever
had,” he added. “That takes
your breath away a little bit.”
The Buckeyes defense has a bit of a
chip on its shoulder.
Many considered Ohio State a strong
contender to make the initial College
Football Playoffs this fall. Then quar-
terback Braxton Miller went down with
a shoulder injury that will cost him the
season.
Now, with freshman J.T. Barrett in
command of the offense, there are a lot
of people saying the Buckeyes no lon-
ger belong in the title discussion.
The defense believes it has to domi-
nate — even against a volatile offense
like Navy’s option — in order to
give its own offense time to adapt to
Barrett.
“Oh yes, we’ve got to,” lineback-
er Curtis Grant said. “Defense wins
championships. We’re going to come
out each and every day, high energy
and just do what we need to do to keep
moving forward.”

College Football Schedule
NFL Preseason Glance
Furyk
(Continued from page 6)
The Cincinnati Reds put starting
pitchers Mat Latos and Mike Leake on
revocable waivers.
That means they have three options:
if some team claims them — my guess is
more than one will, especially Latos —
either the Reds can pull them back, let
them go straight up or they have 48 hours
to work out a trade with the offenders!
I pray this is not the dreaded fire sale
and rebuilding job that almost never
works.
That might mean they feel they cannot
make a rally to make the playoffs — with
their current horrible, rotten, even medi-
ocre offense being incapable of getting
hot or even lukewarm — and they are
gauging the trade possibilities now or in
the off-season.
Maybe they feel they can get some
offensive weapons for a stretch run or for
a minor rebuild next year and some team
might be willing to offer them something
to try and make their own run.
To me, Latos has ace stuff and Leake
is more of a number 2 or 3 guy with time
to develop, especially with the emphasis
on pitching in MLB.
Should something come of this, the
Reds must feel comfortable that Tony
Cingrani will be back and ready to step
into the rotation, especially as a much-
needed left-handed starter, or others in
the farm system are ready to assume
major-league roles.
Or else they will get top prospects for
these guys that are ready.
I don’t have much hope in this matter.
———
According to owner Jerry Jones, the
Dallas Cowboys have always been a
team built on glitz and glamour, even
under the legendary Tom Landry.
Really? Must he always open mouth,
insert foot?
Excuse me but those Cowboys —
when Landry coached, Tex Schramm was
the GM, Gil Brandt was player personnel
director and the Murchinsons owned it —
actually had something to brag about, not
this truly mediocre excuse of a football
team ever since Jerry couldn’t share the
credit with Jimmy Johnson.
Everybody knows that the last two
Super Bowls they won were Jimmy’s
doing, not Barry Switzer’s.
Those teams did have their share of
characters, don’t get me wrong, but they
won lots of games and Super Bowls or at
least got there.
They EARNED the “glitz and glam-
our”; these teams have to do the same
and they haven’t.
Because the Cowboys are worth zil-
lions of dollars, don’t let your head get
too big — oops, too late!
Musings Reds overcome Soler’s HR, beat Cubs
By JOE KAY
Associated Press
CINCINNATI — Skip
Schumaker drove in a pair
of runs with a double and a
single on Wednesday night
and the Cincinnati Reds with-
stood Jorge Soler’s first-at-
bat homer and his RBI single
for a 7-5 victory over the
Chicago Cubs.
Soler, a 22-year-
old prospect from
Cuba, was called
up Wednesday after
getting a 9-year, $30
million deal from the Cubs in
2012. He started in right field
and batted fifth.
After Luis Valbuena led
off the second inning with a
homer off Mat Latos (5-3),
Soler hit a 2-1 pitch into the
Reds’ bullpen in center field.
The last Cub to homer in
his first at-bat also did it in
Cincinnati — Starlin Castro
off Homer Bailey on May 7,
2010.
Soler also had an RBI
single off Jonathan Broxton
in the eighth, cutting it to
6-5. Latos pitched into the
eight and gave up four runs
while fanning a season-high
10 batters.
Pinch-hitter Chris Heisey
homered in the bottom of
the inning. Aroldis Chapman
escaped a 2-on threat in the
ninth, getting his 28th save in
30 chances.
Jacob Turner (4-8) made
his first start for the Cubs and
lasted only 3 2/3
innings, giving up
six runs — three of
them unearned.
The Reds took
advantage of three
Cubs errors and ended their
4-game winning streak, one
shy of their season high.
The Reds are 24-10 against
Chicago over the last two
years, including 10-5 this
season.
The Reds sent nine bat-
ters to the plate and scored
four times in the fourth
inning, taking advantage of
fielding errors by shortstop
Castro and Valbuena at third.
Schumaker, Brandon Phillips
and Devin Mesoraco had RBI
singles.
Reds leadoff hitter Billy
Hamilton had a pair of infield
singles and stole his 50th
base, becoming the ninth
Reds player to reach the
mark. Bob Bescher holds the
club rookie mark with 54 in
1909.
The Cubs were missing
first baseman Anthony Rizzo,
who has a stiff lower back.
Rizzo hit his 30th homer dur-
ing a 3-0 win on Tuesday
night but had to leave in the
eighth inning because of the
back problem.
TRAINER’S ROOM
Cubs: Outfielders
Ryan Sweeney and Justin
Ruggiano went on the 15-day
DL. Sweeney pulled a ham-
string on Tuesday. Ruggiano
hadn’t played since last week
because of a sore left ankle.
INF Logan Watkins was
recalled from Triple-A Iowa.
Reds: 1B Joey Votto took
ground balls for the first time
since he went on the DL on
July 8 with strained muscles
above his left knee. Manager
Bryan Price said it’s unlikely
he’ll start a rehab stint before
Sept. 4, when he’s eligible to
be reinstated.

Dear Abby
Wife is unwilling to shoulder
burden of mother-in-law’s care
DEAR ABBY: My
mother-in-law is 80
and in the early stages
of Alzheimer’s. She
lives alone an hour
and a half from us. She
also has a professional
who takes care of her
once a week. My
husband, “Fred,” goes
to help and entertain
her every weekend,
and I sometimes
accompany him. She
has enough money
to stay in an assisted
living facility, but
Fred wants to build
a mother-in-law
apartment for her on
our property.
Abby, I DON’T
LIKE HER. She was
a bully when she was
younger, and she’s
still manipulative.
She has made some
comments about me
hitting her, which
never happened. Of
course, Fred believed
me. If she lives with
us, I will be her main
caregiver because I
have a home-based
business and a flexible
schedule.
I have already said
no to Fred’s idea,
but I don’t want to
be the bad guy. His
two brothers live
states away and don’t
want to be involved
because of the way
their mother treated
them during their
teens. Fred is the
only son willing to
overlook past issues
and has made peace
with her.
Could you help
me to sort this out? --
THREE’S A CROWD
IN MARYLAND
DEAR THREE’S
A CROWD: I’ll
try. Caring for
someone who has
Alzheimer’s disease
is a full-time job
because the disease
is PROGRESSIVE.
While Fred’s mother
can live alone with the
help of a professional
once a week now, that
will soon not be the
case. She will become
increasingly helpless
and so confused that
should an emergency
arise in her apartment
she will be unable
to think sequentially
enough to know
what to do. She may
no longer recognize
who you are and
become agitated and
combative.
For these reasons
your mother-in-
law should be in
an assisted living
facility staffed with
caregivers who have
been trained to take
care of people with
Alzheimer’s. Because
you have a business
to run, it can’t be you.
Since Fred has made
peace with his mother,
he should visit her
often to ensure she is
well-treated. But he
should NOT expect
the responsibility of
caring for her to be
yours because it is
unrealistic.

Thursday, August 28, 2014
It’s time to pull together
the knowledge and expertise
you have acquired over the
years and fnd a way to put it to
good use. Let go of uncertainty
and doubt, and trust in your
skills. Any challenges can
be conquered if you don’t let
situations fester.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22) -- If you are ambivalent
about your current career, look
into other options. It’s never too
late to change your direction,
go after a dream or pick up a
new skill.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23) -- You may be feeling
uncertain about a situation at
work. If immediate action isn’t
necessary, focus on doing the
best job possible. Keeping busy
will help free your mind from
worry.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) -- Don’t let anyone push
you to make a hasty decision.
Take all the time you need
to investigate the details of
a pending fnancial, legal or
medical matter.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-
Dec. 21) -- Your popularity
is growing within your peer
group. Don’t take any of your
relationships for granted, or
the tables will turn. Nurturing
what you have built with others
will always be necessary.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19) -- Don’t listen to
someone who is cynical. Once
you have decided the best route,
keep moving forward. It’s
pointless to wait for everyone’s
blessings.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) -- Make sure that everyone
around you is clear about your
intentions. Your insight will
inspire others to follow you,
giving you the support and
muscle required to reach your
goals.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) -- You are a dependable
and dedicated person, but it’s
also important to take time to
replenish and rejuvenate. Don’t
take on demands or errands at
the risk of getting run-down.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) -- A hasty decision could
turn out badly if you haven’t
checked your sources. Before
you proceed, check to see if
someone with ulterior motives
has misled you.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) -- Procrastination will
be your downfall. You have
decided on your direction,
so don’t waste time second-
guessing your moves. Take the
plunge and get on with your
life.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20) -- You don’t have to blow
your budget to enjoy some
lively entertainment. Love and
romance are knocking at
your door. Make special plans
to do something within your
means.
CANCER (June 21-July
22) -- Your opponents will
not give an inch. Instead of
stepping into the spotlight
where it is easy for others to
criticize your actions, keep
your ideas quiet until your
presentation is fawless.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
-- Good advice is useless if
you don’t take it. Listen to the
experts to discover a way to
overcome anything you face. A
delay could cause trouble.

Trivia
Answers to Wednesday’s questions:
Dinner should be delayed no more than 20 minutes
for a late guest, according to the most recent edition of
Emily Post’s Etiquette.
Bunge jumping was inspired by a centuries-old
ritual performed by natives on the island of Pentecost,
in the South Pacific Republic or Vanuatu. But instead of
leaping from great heights with secured bungee cords
attached to their ankles, the islanders take the plunge
from a crude 98-foot-tall tower with secured tree vines
wrapped around their ankles.
Today’s questions:
How does the Hanukkah menorah differ from the
menorah traditionally displayed in Jewish temples?
What alias — borrowed from the TV sitcom
“Friends” — does teen heartthrob Justin Bieber use for
hotel reservations?
Answers in Friday’s Herald.
(Continued from page 1)
The fair officially opened at 8 a.m.
with a few vendors ready for business.
Many exhibits were still being prepared
for the week. Weigh-ins were held in sev-
eral barns. Action at the Fairgrounds had
actually begun earlier in the week as Jon
Germann was crowned Jr. Fair King and
Sophia Wilson was named Jr. Fair Queen
on Sunday. On Tuesday night, 19 local
truck tuggers competed in the Tug-a-Truck
competition at the Grandstand. Pre-fair
winning trophies went to Spencerville’s
Matt Sites in both the 5,500-lb. and the
7,500-lb. weight classes.
Every kid’s dream, the opening of the
midway rides, happened at 3 p.m. and two
hours later the official ceremonies were
held, opening the 2014 Van Wert County
Fair. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held,
complete with color guard. This year, the
ceremonies were not held at the front gate
but at the Grandstand.
After the ribbon cutting, the Van Wert
County Fair Board, Van Wert County
Commissioners, Van Wert County Sheriff,
and Van Wert City Mayor all took their
positions to complete the ALS Ice Bucket
Challenge. The group took buckets full of
ice water over the head, delivered by many
4-H kids who were more than happy to
soak the officials.
The challenge is a current craze which
is designed to raise awareness and money
to fight the disease Amyotrophic lateral
sclerosis, or ALS, more commonly known
as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Van Wert County
Economic Development Director Sarah
Smith accepted the challenge on Tuesday
night before the crowd gathered for the
Tug-a-Truck competition.
Back on track Wednesday night were
the harness racers. Races will be held
again tonight, and Derby Day featuring
quarter horse and thoroughbred racing is
set for Sunday at noon. It will be the 122nd
time Derby Day has been held in Van Wert
for the fair. Only a few venues for horse
racing are left in Ohio; Van Wert has a
rich tradition.
The debut of the fair dog show helped
wrap up Day One. The show, held at
the Farm Focus Arena, attracted a small
crowd, excited to watch the dogs be put
through their paces. A revival of Farm
Focus itself began on Wednesday and will
carry through to today with vendors and
speakers lined up for the two days. On the
agenda for the two days are speakers talk-
ing about GMOs or genetically modified
organisms, drone demonstrations, aquatic
ecosystems and other ag topics, designed
to be reminiscent of the days when Farm
Focus would pack in thousands at loca-
tions around the county.
Fair-goers are encouraged to come
out today for Kid’s Day when admis-
sion will be just $3 for adults and kids
admission is free. And remember the
fair’s Lunch Ticket Program. Today and
Friday, come out to the fair from 11
a.m. - 2 p.m. and enjoy some food, take
in the animal or other shows, then when
upon exiting the fairgrounds, the admis-
sion price will be refunded. It’s like a
quick visit to the Van Wert County Fair
for free.
Fair

The Ottoville VFW Post
3740 has provided sponsor-
ship for Fifty Amp Fuse. Polly
Mae, featuring lead singer
Jodi Burden, will be featured
on the stage singing country
music hits from 8 p.m. until
midnight on Sunday. The final
main attraction for this year’s
Park Carnival is Tractor Square
Dancing. There will be shows
held at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on
Sunday. All of these events are
free to the public.
The Carnival Lounge will
be back again this year. The
lounge provides a unique
experience where individuals
can enjoy wine, craft beer and
entertainment. A $5 entry fee is
charged for admittance into the
tent. This area will also feature
live music on both nights. Steve
Hendershot will be performing

evening starting at 5 p.m. Bob
