VAN WERT Former Van Wert
County Dog Warden Rich Strunken-
berg, 38, was indicted by a grand
jury in Van Wert on Friday. Special
Prosecutor Joseph R. Burkard told
the Times Bulletin Strunkenberg was
indicted on four counts of Prohibi-
tions Against Companion Animals,
in laymans terms what amounts to
cruelty to animals. Each charge
led is a fth-degree felony carrying
a maximum period of incarceration
of 12 months.
Burkard, the Paulding County
Prosecuting Attorney, was appointed
as special prosecutor in the case after
Strunkenberg was red by the Van
Wert County Commissioners in July
for incompetency, inefciency, gross
neglect of duty, misfeasance, mal-
feasance, non-feasance, and failure
to supply adequate food and water
to the animals, failure to adequately
clean the kennel and cage area, fail-
ure to supply adequate care and at-
tention to the animals, and failure to
secure dead animals in the facility.
The indictment against Strunken-
berg had been also called for in an
online petition on an Internet web-
site. That petition had 758 signatures
as of Friday.
The case against Strunkenberg
was due to a Sheriffs Ofce inves-
tigation into the conditions after the
rst anonymous complaint on July
20. A description of the kennel fa-
cility conditions was never released,
although Van Wert Sheriff Tom
Riggenbach earlier had described
the facility conditions as being not
what was acceptable to me.

Military chapel project in need of donations
DHI Media Editor
VAN WERT The project
to remodel and expand the Mil-
itary War Album Chapel next
to the Van Wert County Court-
house is proceeding nicely, but
there is one problem.
Actually, as of right now,
were going to need another
$7,000, disclosed Veterans
Services Ofcer Barry Johns.
The chapel, which was built
in 1944, has stood beside the
courthouse for the past 70
years, telling the story of Van
Wert County veterans.
Veteran Tom Wells works on the siding on the
Military War Album Chapel next to the Van Wert
County Courthouse this week. A remodeling project
of the 70-year-old structure is proceeding, but is in
need of donations. (DHI Media/Ed Gebert)

Ofcials across the state
are scrambling to gather road
salt bids from Morton Salt and
Cargill, the states main sup-
pliers. Most are hearing the
chirp of crickets in response.
Those that have received bids
suffered from sticker shock
with prices upwards of $100
per ton compared to last years
approximate $38 per ton.
Im not going to specu-
late on a salt shortage but
there is denitely a lack of
response from the salt com-
panies, Ohio Department of
Transportation Central Ofce
Media Spokesperson Steve
Faulkner said Friday. We al-
ways invite the counties and
local communities to join us
in the bid process hoping for
a lower price. Some join us,
some dont. What Im hearing
is that only 10 counties that
did join us received bids.
With a winter forecast
similar to last year ahead,
Faulkner said the situation
could be serious.
ODOT usually uses about
630,000 tons of salt. Last year,
we used more than a million,
Faulkner said. We have
700,000 for our use in stor-
age right now and thats what
we like to keep as a reserve.
Were like everyone else. We
ended the winter with almost
Faulkner said he isnt con-
cerned at the moment but his
ofce will use every resource
at its disposal to try and se-
cure salt contracts before the
snow ies.
Weve got to work to solve
the problem before winter,
Faulkner said. Weve got
a few months and well do
whatever we can to help. Well
look at alternative salt sup-
pliers and well keep at until
we nd a solution. We will be
good neighbors and help ev-
eryone as best we can. Well
plan for the worst and hope for
the best.
Allen, Putnam and Van
Wert counties all joined with
ODOT in the bidding process
and none had received a bid
for salt this winter as of Fri-

Summit fosters auto industry growth, details labor decits
DHI Media Staff Writer
LIMA Rhodes State College
hosted the Regional Auto Growth
Summit Friday where guest speakers
shared their expertise on fostering
growth in the industry with attend-
ees from varying businesses and ed-
ucational facilities in the Lima area.
Ford Motor Companys Vice
President of Global Affairs Bill
Dirksen spoke of the labor landscape
in the automotive industry and said
one of the main problems is the lack
of skilled labor in the pool of work-
force candidates.
Our strategy is up-skilling our
labor force and creating standard-
ized teams that can be trained to x
problems, Dirksen said. We need
skilled, trained production and me-
chanical teams.
Senior Project Manager Bernard
Swiecki of the Center for Automo-
tive Research (CAR) gave an over-
view of the trends and changes re-
lated to the industry.
The automotive workforce is
experiencing shortages in software
engineers and its a mixed bag with
production employees, Swiecki
said. Theres a universal need for
skilled trades.

seeking to educate their workforce

DEAR ABBY: Im in des-
perate need of help. I have been
with my girlfriend for four years.
With every long-term relation-
ship, there are bound to be is-
sues. I havent felt loved by her
in a long time, and I think I have
fallen out of love with her. I cant
even tell her that I love her any-
more because I dont want to lie.
When we make love, its dull
and boring. I want to feel the
way I used to about her. When I was near her, my hairs used to
stand up, my heart would race, my body would quiver and I would
never want to let her go. How can I feel that way about her again?
DEAR WANTS: The problem with relationships is that they
can only be brand-new once. With the passage of time, to some
extent the excitement fades. Thats where the work comes in.
Longtime couples must make an effort to keep their relation-
ship fresh and exciting. This means introducing spontaneity and
new experiences to each other. You say you havent felt loved by
her in a long time. My advice would be to talk to her about it.
Because you cant bring yourself to tell her you love her, has it oc-
curred to you that she might feel as though she has been emotion-
ally abandoned by you? If you want that old feeling back, you and
your lady will need to resume communication on a meaningful
level. Its not always easy, but honesty can revive a relationship
thats wilting.

DEAR ABBY: I live with my longtime boyfriend in a house
he owns. Were ve hours away from my parents and siblings and
the town in which I grew up. Its a beautiful house with lots of
land, and I can imagine raising a family here. However, I always
thought that if I had children, Id live close to the rest of my family.
I would want my parents nearby so they could lend a hand, and I
want my kids to have a close relationship with their grandparents,
aunts, uncles and cousins.
My boyfriend is open to the idea of selling the house, but Im
not sure I would want him to. What should I do? I love this house,
but how can I start a family so far from my own? LOOKING
DEAR LOOKING AHEAD: Before you make any decisions,
discuss this with your parents and see if their vision of grandpar-
enthood is similar to your fantasy. Take into consideration how
close they are to your siblings and how involved they are in each
others lives. Be sure that the kind of extended family relationship
you envision is realistic. If everyone is on board, then you and your
boyfriend should talk about what relocating will mean in terms of
not only selling this house, but also the impact it might have on
your ability to earn a living. This property may be terric, but if it
cannot offer you the lifestyle you wish for, then you would be bet-
ter served to move. But only you can decide that.

Dear Heloise: I dont know if
this is in your realm or not, but
we need help. Some neighbors
cut down their pine trees. They
were nesting places for pigeons.
We now have 30 or 40 large,
dirty birds in our driveway and
on our porch and patio. We have
grandchildren who come to
play, and the mess is unbeliev-
able. We dont want to destroy
them, just prevent them from
coming to our house. An-
nette O., Warren, Ohio
What a pesky problem! Here
is a hint that I have seen used
a lot down at the Texas coast to
keep birds from nesting under-
neath the elevated beach hous-
es. Ive even seen some on the
roof of an enclosed walkway
at an airport: Fake owls! Many
of the houses have owl decoys
placed around the house. They
are just plastic owls. If the birds
think there is a larger, predatory
bird there, they will not roost.
Try that. If that doesnt work,
you may need to talk to a pro-
fessional to get other sugges-
tions. Heloise

Dear Heloise: I believe that
you have printed before the
way to clean a mop. Could you
please reprint it? I could use
some help. I feel like I am not
getting the oors clean because
my mop is dirty! Janice in
Freeport, Texas
Always happy to help, Jan-
ice! Sometimes the oors do
not seem to get really clean with
a dirty mop. Try to clean the
mop between uses. The method
of cleaning depends on whether
your mop has a removable head.
If it does, remove it and wash it
in the washing machine with
some old towels. If your mop
does not have a removable head,
ll a bucket with hot, soapy
water. Swish and dunk the
mop in the water until the dirt
is removed. Rinse with clean
water and let dry. Do you have
other cleaning tools you want to
know how to clean? Or do you
want to learn how to make my
homemade cleaning solutions?
Order my pamphlet. To receive
one, send $5 and a long, self-
addressed, stamped (70 cents)
envelope to: Heloise/Cleaners,
P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio,
TX 78279-5001. Also, try us-
ing two buckets when mopping,
including one with fresh water
to go over what you have just
cleaned. To get cleaning rags
clean, wash in the washing ma-
chine with no bleach or fabric
softener. Heloise
Dear Heloise: My chigger
bites were itching terribly while

Grandparent scams continue
to target Ohioans
COLUMBUS In recognition of Grand-
parents Day this Sunday, At-
torney General Mike DeWine
is reminding Ohioans to watch
out for the grandparent scam, a
costly telephone ploy in which
con artists pose as grandchil-
dren in need.
Thus far in 2014, the Ohio
Attorney Generals Ofce has
received 22 complaints involv-
ing grandparent scams. Most
of those consumers report los-
ing money, and losses range
from about $1,000 to as much
as $8,000. Additional consum-
ers have reported receiving the
scam calls but refusing to send
Grandparents naturally
want to help their grandchildren,
and these con artists try to exploit that, Attor-
ney General DeWine said. If you get an un-
expected call from someone who claims to be
your grandchild or another relative who asks
you to wire money to another state or coun-
try, contact another family member to verify
the claim before sending any
In a typical scam, a grand-
parent will receive a phone
call from someone posing as
a grandchild. The grandchild
claims to be in trouble and in
urgent need of money, maybe
to pay a ne or to keep the
grandchild out of jail. The
grandparent is asked to send
money immediately, often out
of the country, using a prepaid
money card or wire transfer.
To stay out of more trouble
with the parents, the caller
tells the grandparent, Please
dont tell Mom or Dad.
Grandparents who send
money likely will receive ad-
ditional calls requesting more money.

Ohios new conservation program
to improve Lake Erie water quality
VAN WERT 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 re-
ducing 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 management
practices that keep nutrients
on elds, improve water qual-
ity and combat harmful algal
blooms. The program will
be supervised locally by the
Van Wert County Soil and
Water Conservation District.
Working with the Ohio Department of
Natural Resources (ODNR) through the
Ohio Clean Lakes Initiative, $1.25 mil-
lion 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 theyre se-
rious about improving Lake Erie, said
ODNR Director James Zehringer. ODNR
is pleased to partner with Ohios 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. The district is
excited to use our existing relationships
with Ohios farmers to im-
prove the health of one of
our states greatest natural
The LE NRP is a vol-
untary program that re-
imburses farmers to plant
cover crops or install drain-
age management devices
such as controlled drain-
age structures or blind tile
inlets. In addition to reduc-
ing runoff of nutrients and pesticides the
practices will allow farmers to manage
and maintain the water from their elds
after harvest and during the growing sea-
son, 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,
Deance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Har-
din, Henry, Huron, Lucas, Lorain, Mar-
ion, Medina, Mercer, Ottawa, Paulding,
Putnam, Richland, Sandusky, Seneca,
Shelby, Van Wert, Williams, Wood and
Wyandot. Starting immediately, land-
owners 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

From page A3
The scammer will claim that more money is needed to help
the grandchild return home safely.
Ohioans can keep the following tips in mind to help pre-
vent becoming a victim of this scam:
If you get a call from a grandchild in trouble, ask
questions only your real family members would know how
to answer. Ask about the last time they visited or their pets
name something the scam artists probably wont know.
Keep in mind that scam artists may know some personal
information about the grandparents or grandchildren.
Tell your own family members to be very suspicious
if a grandchild calls for help and insists that Mom and
Dad shouldnt know about the situation. Keep in mind that
scam artists may know some personal information about the
grandparents or grandchildren.
Tell your own family members to be very suspicious
if a grandchild calls for help and insists that Mom and
Dad shouldnt know about the situation. Never wire
transfer money to someone who calls unexpectedly.
Never buy a prepaid money card and give the card
number to someone who calls unexpectedly. Prepaid money
cards and wire transfers are preferred payment methods of
Watch out for any unusual banking activity or receipts
from wire transfer services among your grandparents or
other family members.
Discourage your family from posting any upcoming
travel plans online so that scammers cant use that informa-
tion to take advantage of your family.
Ohioans who suspect a scam or believe they have been
treated unfairly should contact the Ohio Attorney Gener-
als Office at 800-282-0515 or www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.

President Roosevelt accurately
described December 7, 1941, as a
day that would live in infamy as the
events of that day are still vividly re-
called decades later. But few people
remember Japan also attacked other
American interests throughout the
Pacic theater within hours as well.
Wake Island is little more than a
small coral atoll in the Pacic Ocean
anked by two smaller islets, how-
ever, their position made them stra-
tegically important. While bombs
and torpedoes were exploding in
Pearl Harbor and thrusting America
into World Ward II, Japanese bomb-
ers based out of the Marshall Islands
attacked the small military garrison.
Eight of the twelve American
F4 Wildcat ghter planes never
made it off the tarmac before be-
ing destroyed but all of the Marine
defensive positions remained intact.
Oddly, even though Wake was being
attacked at approximately the same
time as Hawaii, the battle began on
December 8, because the island sits
on the opposite side of the interna-
tional date line.
Believing they had softened up
the marines stationed in the garri-
son and relying on a weakened U.S.
morale after the devastation at Pearl
Harbor, the Japanese attempted to
land an invasion force on December
11. Enemy light cruisers, destroyers,
patrol boats and two troop transports
soon sat in the waters off the island
and sent their 450-man Special Na-
val Landing Forces toward the shore.
U.S. Major James Devereux or-
dered the four remaining Wildcats
into the skies while he kept his coast-
al artillery guns silent until the ships
were well within range. They sank
one destroyer with a direct hit to its
magazine, becoming the rst Japa-
nese surface ship sunk during World
War II, and hit a light cruisers su-
perstructure 11 times. The ghter
planes also did their job by sinking
another destroyer, dropping a bomb
on stowed depth charges. The troop
transports, seeing their accompany-
ing ships sinking in the sea around
them, turned away before placing a
single soldier on the island.
Despite the elation following the
victory, the American troops were in
bad shape. They desperately needed
resupplied with ammunition, gear,
and food but the Japanese navy set
up a blockade around Wake. Im-
mediately a relief task force was
formed, led by Rear Admiral Frank
Fletcher on the Saratoga, to take
more supplies and troops to the gar-
rison. When only a days sail away,
he was ordered to stop and wait for
the Lexington to join him. The next
day, December 23, the Japanese at-
tacked Wake Island again. He was
then ordered back to Pearl Harbor by
Vice Admiral William Pye. Those
were the last orders ever given by
Pye to troops in battle while Fletcher
later played a major role in two key
engagements the Battle of the Cor-
al Sea and the Battle of Midway.
The Japanese did not underesti-
mate the U.S. marine forces on their
second invasion. This time they sent
an additional 1,500 soldiers as well
as more ships. Two more patrol boats
were destroyed in the landing but af-
ter a full day and night of erce ght-
ing, the Wake garrison surrendered.
Over 120 Americans were killed
in the 15-day battle while the Japa-
nese lost over 1,000 marines and
naval personnel. They took all the
Americans on the island prisoner,
including all of the civilian contrac-
The Japanese feared an imme-
diate American counterattack and
put the captives to work building
stronger defenses and securing big-
ger artillery. But with U.S. forces
in the region still reeling from the
Pearl Harbor attack, the American
command established a submarine
barricade instead of mounting an
invasion force. The blockade kept
the Japanese from resupplying their
troops, leading to the starvation of
more than 2,000 Japanese soldiers
until their surrender on September
4, 1945. Beginning a year to the day
after the loss of the island, American
bombers from Midway Island and
the aircraft carrier Lexington pum-
meled the captured garrison.
Horrible atrocities took place on
Wake over the years under Japanese
rule. In May of 1943, after a small
raid on the island by the USS Yor-
ktown, Rear Admiral Shigematsu
Sakaibara ordered the remaining 98
American prisoners taken to an iso-
lated spot on the island, blindfolded,
and machine-gunned. One prisoner
escaped the massacre and carved 98
US PW 5-10-43 onto a rock beside
the mass grave before he was recap-
tured and beheaded by Sakaibara.
The battle and subsequent hor-
rors that took place at Wake Island
became a rallying point for the U.S.
Marine Corps.
Here now is a reprint of the Sep-
tember 5, 1945, Van Wert Times-
Bulletin article detailing the surren-
der by the Japanese of Wake Island
after the end of World War II.
Wake Island serves as rallying point for U.S. Marines during WWII
Wake, Sept. 5 (AP) The
American ag was raised on Wake
Island symbol of marine great-
ness at 1:50 oclock yesterday af-
The Japanese rear admiral
who had commanded Wake since
it fell on December 23, 1941, sa-
luted the stars and stripes. So did
his staff and 40 of his garrison
troops, who came to attention as
a marine bugler sounded col-
ors. They saluted as the ag was
Brig. General Lawson Sander-
son, commander of the Fourth Ma-
rine Aircraft Wing, and 75 ofcers
and men from three U.S. destroyer
escorts reverently watched the ag
raising after Rear Adm. Shigemat-
su Sakaibara, the island command-
er, had signed a formal surrender
document aboard the Levy.
Thus did Wake return to Ameri-
can possession 1,362 days after it
fell, despite one of the wars most
courageous ghts waged by Ma-
rine Maj. (now Lieutenant Col.)
James P. S. Devereux, and 378 of-
cers and men of his First Marine
defense battalion.
Devereux and some others of the
Wake marines have been reported
alive in Japanese prison camps in
Sakaibara said Wake had cost
the Japanese 3,000 lives 1,000
killed in the Japanese invasion and
by subsequent American air raids
and naval bombardment, and 2,000
of malnutrition and disease.
Wake has been bombed fre-
quently by army and navy air forc-
es since Seventh AAF Liberators
made Americas rst neutralizing

small islands, Wake, Peale, and

Japanese bombings. It turned back

There are 1,787 Americans on

contract workers constructing a
channel, 70 Pan-American Airways
employees, and 517 service men:
379 ofcers and men of the First

On Monday in Van Wert
and also on Wednesday in
Delphos it is going to look
like we are being invaded by
antique Buicks. Some 40 cars
ranging from the early 1920s
to the 1970s will be bringing
folks from all over the country
to our area of Northwest Ohio.
Their base of operations will
be in Bryan but each day they
will be venturing out visiting
our corner of America. Their
tour leaders, Bruce and Shar
Kile, are located in Atlanta,
Georgia, but originally hail
from that state up north (the M
word). They plan to see many
of the sites during their day-
long trip to Van Wert includ-
ing the museums and local
business attractions. I know
that Larry Lee of the Van Wert
Area Convention and Visitors
Bureau has been hard at work
putting together an interesting
itinerary like the Niswonger
Performing Arts Center, Was-
senberg Gallery and the Van
Wert Historical Society.
Wednesday morning, they
are heading down to the Arm-
strong Air and Space Museum
in the morning and plan ar-
riving in time for lunch in the
fair city of Delphos. Our hope
is to be able to park all of the
cars along Main Street be-
tween Third and Fifth Streets
on both sides. It will probably
look like we went back in
While they are here in Del-
phos, they will be enjoying a
meal at the various restaurants
in town, of course, I wouldnt
be surprised if they have to
ll up a tank or two at the gas
stations (or should I call them
lling stations), and then they
plan on touring both museums
in Delphos.
I have met both Bruce and
Shar and they are so typical of
the numerous visitors we have
that make it to our area. Both
were surprised at all these
hometowns have to offer. One
of the items that they indicat-
ed that wanted to experience
was the hometown ice cream
stand. Where do I start? How
about at our old-fashioned A &
W Root Beer Stand, the Dairy
Hut, Hersheys ice cream at
the Point or at Pats Donuts
and Crme or The Creamery?
Christine Pleva and Shar-
ree Brenneman-Rehling at the
Allen County Convention and
Visitors Bureau were kind
enough to provide some great
goody bags for our guests and
I am sure that Larry Lee and
his crew have done the same
in Van Wert.
So tell me, folks, what do
you think the economic im-
pact will be from these 80 vis-
itors and their 40 automobiles
in Delphos and Van Wert?
They have been told about the
specialty shops in town from
antiques to boutiques. It prob-
ably would be a good day for
a sidewalk sale for the retail
shops in town, also.
I imagine the average citi-
zen in these towns that doesnt
own a business or even work
at a company directly affected
by this visit, doesnt see how
this impacts them. But every
dollar spent gets turned over
many times. From the sales
tax to the banking establish-
ments to the income tax and
wages paid to the workers
in each business travel and
tourism is a big boon for any
Speaking of travel, every-
one is invited to a presentation
at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 30 at the
Museum of Postal History in
Delphos unveiling our nine-
day excursion in New England
for 2015. We leave Delphos on
Sept. 26, 2015, and return on
the evening of Oct. 4.
The rst comment I hear is
how can I plan for something a
year away? The answer is easy
we are offering travel insur-
ance (including all the emer-
gency plans) and trip cancel-
lation insurance absolutely
free! You read that correctly
the insurance is completely
free. Depending on your age,
our free insurance could save
you as much as $450 or more
per person. Its the same type
of coverage we have suggested
for our previous trips but
you had to bear that cost your-
selves. Every one of us took
out insurance for the Alaska
trip in 2013 and the total cost
of that for just 15 people was
over $6,000.
So come on over to the
Event Center at the Museum
of Postal History located at
339 N. Main Street, Delphos,
and listen to all the highlights
of a trip of a lifetime. Sights
include Lucille Balls home-
town, the White Mountains,
the Green Mountains, Booth-
bay, Portland, and Bar Har-
bor, Maine just to name a few.

This week in 1989, the last election in
South Africa held under apartheid took place.
The results were a harbinger of things to come
as the ruling National Party held onto their
majority, but only barely, gathering 48 percent
of the popular vote. The National Party, under
F.W. de Klerks leadership continued a push to
abolish the minority rule but still faced heavy
opposition. The Conservative Party, who ad-
vocated no change to apartheid, earned 31
percent of the vote.
Members of the Lincolnview Local Educa-
tion Association found themselves in the mid-
dle of a battle as a union went on strike against
another union. As LLEA members met in a
local home, they had intended to meet with
OEA ofcials to attempt to nd an end to the
impasse with school ofcials on a contract.
However, the OEA ofcials had to cancel the
meeting because they were unable to cross
the picket lines in front of the home that were
manned by members of the Ohio Associates
Staff Union.

This week in 1964, Hurricane Dora
churned toward the Florida coast, still main-
taining wind speeds of 130 miles per hour.
With tides of over 10 feet expected, ofcials
had already begun evacuation procedures in
Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. No
one knew where to expect the landfall, as the
Weather Bureau had only narrowed down the
area to a 450-mile stretch of coastline.
A familiar Van Wert face was seen on na-
tional television. As the cameras panned the
crowd outside Hugh Downs Today Show
studios, there stood Aeroquips Jim Wilson
standing with a sign reading, Van Wert,
Ohio. Noticing the sign, Lima Shawnee alum
Downs said on the air he had once had his lug-
gage lost on the train in Van Wert before it was
found and forwarded on to Lima.
A college grid game slated for Sept. 12 in
Lima City Stadium was of particular interest
to Delphos football fans. The college squads
were Ohio Northern University and Waynes-

Laudick, a product of Delphos St. Johns and
Coach Ed Zalar, was one of the Northern half-
backs ready for action. Laudick, considered
one of the fastest men on the Northern team,
was the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Laudick
of Delphos.

Im afraid that Im one of
those people. You know what I
mean. I tend to speak English.
Correctly. Its part of my job.
I need to know how to spell
most words, at least the more
common ones. And Ive found
that not only do many people
not like those of us who speak
correctly, those people often
times know nothing about
things like grammar, spell-
ing, and vocabulary. Now nor-
mally, Im a guy who doesnt
worry about people who have
grammar problems or spelling
issues, but I saw something
online this week that stressed
the importance of understand-
ing the English language.
A story appeared on the In-
ternet entitled, Betty White
dyes comfortably at home.
Those who did not realize that
the word dyes refers to the
articial coloring of some-
thing, usually hair, and not the
end of a life, became very sad
that the 92-year-old actress
had died. Well, shes not dead,
but her hair is not a natural
Those of us who know the
difference between die and
dye had a little chuckle at
what was certainly publicized
by Betty Whites management
to get her name out in public.
It worked. Unfortunately ex-
pressions of sympathy over
the death of Betty White were
everywhere to be found on so-
cial networks. Well, poor Bet-
ty White, is still alive, mostly
healthy, and still much richer
than me. And some Internet
posters are looking pretty silly
after expressing sadness over
the loss of someone who is
still very much alive.
You see, knowing the dif-
ference between dyes and dies
can prove benecial.
Most times, I let stuff like
that go. I wont hold it against
someone who doesnt know
any better. The only times
I have a little t are when
some basic rules are violated
or when people who should
know better apparently dont.
We should all know basic
rules like making a word plu-
The word for one clock
is clock. The word for two
clocks is clocks. Did you see
that? Just adding an S makes a
word plural. But what happens
when you add an apostrophe
and an S? Clocks. That means
that something belongs to the
clock the clocks alarm, the
clocks hands.
An apostrophe is not need-
ed to make a word plural. Or,
as one of my friends apparent-
ly believes, a word ending is S
does not need an apostrophe
to make it correct. This friend
posted something about some-
one who did die this week,
Joan Rivers. He expressed his
sorrow over the death by typ-
ing. Shes dead. Goodbye to
Joan Rivers. I cringed. Al-
right, Ill admit it, I banged
my head on my desk a few
times. Maybe 100 or so. The
plural rule is one we should all
get to know.
Another is the difference
between to, too, and two.
Truthfully, I learned this in
third grade. You probably did
too, but you may have forgot-
ten. Too means also. Two is
a number between one and
three, and To is a preposition
that indicates destination
were going to the movie.
I may be off-base, but Im
placing the blame for all this,
not on poor education or fail-
ing memory of many people.
I am casting the blame for a
general disregard of grammar
rules and spelling and vocab-
ulary right on the doorstep of
the true culprit. The Internet.
Yes, the Information Su-
perhighway has taught us that
we can communicate without
being able to spell or form
complete sentences. We can
live by the You know what
I mean Principle. Of course,
often when Im reading, I
dont know what you mean.
When you write about setting
to alarm clocks, Im wonder-
ing where you are setting to
and the alarm clocks what?
Its all about clarity.
And when you work with
the written word for a living,
you realize that clarity is hard
to constantly achieve. Dont
believe me? Ask Betty White,
who is alive with freshly col-
ored hair. Or ask the people
fretting that Betty White is
gone, when she really isnt.
To you, writing correctly may
not matter but it just might
Only a person who has
no clue who I am well,
millions, really wouldnt
know that Im a dog lover
and animal lover, really. (I
like the ducks. Theres just
too many.)
Now that Ive brought
the ducks into the picture,
Ill share a concern I have.
A month or so ago I had to
stand on my brakes in the car
to avoid hitting a dog chasing
after a duck.
It made me mad on two
levels. One, I could have
killed one or both of them
and that would have made
me very sad. Two, why is
this my problem? Why am
I dealing with this? Why is
this dog allowed to roam free
creating chaos?
Last week, the same dog
was chasing another unfor-
tunate duck around its yard,
across the street and into
my yard, nally caught it,
injured it and Im not sure
what happened after that be-
cause I was walking my dog
and needed to get him in the
house because hes nosy and
was fascinated by the events
unfolding. I didnt want to
see the end of the story, ei-
In another lifetime, I
would be a veterinarian or
a zookeeper or something to
do with the care of animals.
Shoulda, woulda, coulda. I
thoroughly enjoy the com-
panionship I share with my
dog and the pleasure my hus-
band I get from being dog
I also want everyone else
to enjoy my dog, too. I dont
want him to jump on people
(Jack Russell, hello) or make
a nuisance of himself. We
dont feed him people food
so he doesnt bother people
when its time to eat.
We took Ringo to classes
and still work with him on
his commands. Some days he
works with us. I wont b and
say he hasnt misbehaved or
jumped on someone or made
a pest of himself. He has.
They are dogs and we
are the masters. That means
its up to us to teach the dog
manners and a cute trick or
two along the way and en-
sure their safety, health and
well-being and that of every-
one else as well. That also
means they stay on their own
We have had a dog for al-
most 14 years and have never
just opened the door to let
one of them out, unleashing
them on people who perhaps
dont like dogs or just dont
like someone elses dog in
their yard or bothering their
children or animals.
Its a good neighbor, cour-
teous thing. Its also safer for
the dog. That way theres no
chance of it getting hit by a
car or injured in some other
I know its hard to believe
that everyone else doesnt
love your dog as much as you
do. I am surprised by this on
occasion myself. For what-
ever reason because its
the right thing to do, because
you love your dog, because
you like me whatever;
please, fellow dog owners,
keep em on a leash.
When I think about wit-
nessing the death of a dog or
a duck because of someones
relaxed view on how they
should treat their pets and
their neighbors, it makes me
want to scream. Why is it so
hard to put a dog on a leash
or tie-out?
Ive heard the excuses
that its a dog and it needs
to be free to roam, etc. Re-
ally? Perhaps you should
move to the prairie or some
other wide-open space to al-
low this to happen; however,
I have a feeling your neigh-
bors there wont appreciate it
much either.
I hate to sound like a pub-
lic service announcement,
but keep your dogs under
your control. Its good for
them, its good for you
and its the law!

What are you typing about?
Last weekend the Internet world was turned on its ear when
nude photos of more than 100 celebrities, most notably actress
Jennifer Lawrence and model Kate Upton, were leaked onto
the web. The photographs were allegedly stolen from the vic-
tims iCloud and cell phone accounts.
Those thefts and subsequent Internet postings are a heinous
invasion of privacy and we hope the person(s) involved are
caught and dealt with to the full extent of the law.
At the same time we would also like to point out a fact about
this situation:
The year is 2014.
Why does the year matter? Because this is 2014 with all of
the advanced technology we have grown to become dependent
upon in our daily lives.
Lets suppose for a second today was 40 years earlier in
1974. At that time, if two consenting adults wanted to take a
few risque photos of each other, who would possibly have seen
them? The photo developer at the local drug store. Perhaps a
friend. But most likely, only the two adults.
Even if a burglar broke into the couples house and found the
photos in an album or the nightstand, who were the crooks go-
ing to show? Again, probably only a few people because there
was no Internet to instantly make them accessible for tens of
millions of viewers.
But we dont live in 1974; this is 2014. The world has be-
come a narcissistic society where your favorite actor tweets
what they had for breakfast or people blast their personal be-
liefs on Facebook postings. You can no longer just go to an
event and enjoy the moment, now you must take a sele and
rush it out on every social media platform imaginable or the
night just was not worth the effort.
For the most part, the victims in this case were consenting
adults (at least one set of the leaked photos apparently were
taken of an Olympic athlete before she turned 18), who were
willingly snapping photos for their personal use. We can as-
sume they understood fully what they were doing.
Our concern - our warning - is that this sort of behavior
extends down to our children. Todays teenagers say things and
do things on the Internet that many people would nd hard to
believe. Most of the time it is because they do not fully under-
stand how their actions now can affect the rest of their lives.
They believe that only their friends on Facebook, Snapchat,
or any of a myriad of social media options will see what they
are posting. What they dont fully understand is that by its very
nature, there is no guarantee of privacy on the Internet.
And the Internet is permanent. Every time a page or photo
is posted, there is a record kept somewhere. That means the
drunken diatribe you posted when you were 19 could reap-
pear a few years later when you are searching for a job. That
means the naked sele you sent to your ex-ex-ex-ex-boyfriend
10 years ago might suddenly make an appearance again weeks
before your wedding.
The thefts of private moments of the celebrities lives are
not their fault. But we urge all parents and grandparents to use
this opportunity to talk to the younger members of your fam-
ily and reiterate the dangers of living their lives in front of the
world. We urge you to point out there are unscrupulous, abu-
sive people who will use whatever they can nd for their own
twisted amusements - no matter what the cost to the victim.
Please, do it now because no one wants to live out their most
embarrassing moment for all the world to see.

Millions of students are back in school
where they will be taught valuable lessons
by dedicated teachers. Whether they are in
the rst grade, a freshmen in high school or
starting another year of college, students must
know success takes work. If they dont put in
the effort, they wont reap the rewards. Those
who work hard will succeed.
Bryan Golden, a professor, author and self-
development expert, is well-known for his
essays offering rocket fuel for your mind.
While the following message was written for
students, the lessons are just as apropos for
men and women of all ages.
Golden says we can be whatever we want to
be. We have no limitations. The whole world is
open to us. Our future is ahead of us. We can
accomplish whatever we set our mind to. Its
okay to dream.
Be nice to your friends and they will be
nice to you. People respond to the way we treat
them. If you are mean and selsh, no one will
want to play, or work with you. Share your toys
and dont be a bully. Be considerate of the feel-
ings of others.
Clean your room or your desk now. Get
things done today and you wont have to worry
about them. If you let things pile up, it will be
difcult to catch up. Get your work done be-
fore you take a break. Then you can relax and
have a good time.
Stay in school. Keep working. If you dont
get an education, or if you cant hold on to a
job, your opportunities will be limited. Dont
drop out of school. Dont job hop. The more
you learn, the more you benet.
Remember the saying: sticks and stones
will break your bones but names will never
hurt you. It doesnt matter what other people
say. Dont allow others to upset you. There will
always be mean people. Dont pay attention to
Golden says: dont waste your time. Time
goes by very fast. Dont wait to pursue your
Be thankful for what you have. There are
many who are not as fortunate as you. Be
grateful for your home and family. It doesnt
matter what someone else has.
Dont complain. Whining is annoying. If
you have something to say, say it. If you com-
plain all the time, no one will want to listen
to you. Surround yourself with people with
positive attitudes. Celebrate achievements and
special occasions.
Heres an interesting concept. Almost any-
thing can be changed/affected by the determi-
nation of just 2% of the people. The vast ma-
jority of people will follow a leader. They will
rally for change if someone will take the lead.
If there is a group of 10,000 people, it is
likely being led by the efforts of the top 2% of
the members, or less than 200 people. Those
200 are probably taking marching orders from
as few as 10.
If you live in a community of 5,000, the
agenda is probably being set by the actions of
2%. That means just 100 people making the
important decisions. You could be one of them.
The message is, if you dont like the way
things are going, dont sit back and think you
cant do something about it. Get involved in
the discussion and chances are you can make
a difference.
Saying what we think gives a wider range of
conversation than saying what we know. The
following list of alternative denitions is from
the May 1995 issue of The Rotarian magazine.
Housework: Something you do that nobody
notices unless you dont do it.
Junk: Something you keep for 10 years,
then throw away two weeks before you need it.
Front page news: Same today as yesterday,
only happening to different people.
Nostalgia: Looking at the past through
rose-colored mirrors.
Proverb: Short sentences drawn from long
Secrets: Things we give others to keep for
Static: Natures way of protecting us from
certain radio and television programs.
Virus: Latin word used by doctors, mean-
ing Your guess is as good as mine.
Winter: The season when you keep the
house as hot as it was in summer, when you
complained about the heat.
Youth: The rst 50 years of your life. The
rst 20 of everyone elses.
Fall is upon us, and not only does this mean
that Ohio is experiencing cooler weather and col-
orful foliage, but it means that
Ohios students are heading back
to school. Its an opportunity for
kids to start a new grade and to
learn new skills as they continue
their educational career. What
an exciting time for both parents
and kids alike.
I feel that in my role as state
representative, my main job is
keeping Ohioans safe and ensur-
ing that our students are healthy
and happy. Thats why Im proud
of a measure that was recently passed by the Ohio
Legislature. My colleague, State Representative
Terry Johnson, introduced House Bill 296, legisla-
tion that permissively allows a school, school dis-
trict, and residential or day camp to stock doses of
epinephrine on the premises. The legislation will
allow, but not require, a school or district to adopt
a protocol to maintain a stock of epinephrine and
allow properly trained personnel to administer the
epinephrine to a student, staff member or visitor
who exhibits signs of anaphylaxis.
This is a common sense initiative that ensures
that if a student experiences a life-threatening al-
lergic reaction, he or she will be taken care of by
someone who can properly handle the situation
and with the resources necessary to do so. As
we have witnessed, unknown allergies are on the
rise, specically food allergies. This means that a
child might not have an EpiPen readily available
because they arent even aware
that an allergy exists. This leg-
islation solves that problem and
can save lives.
Recent tragedies have
brought to light the need for
schools to be able to respond to
allergic reactions. Anaphylactic
shock caused by unknown aller-
gies recently claimed the lives of
two young students in Virginia
and Maryland. Both states have
since passed laws similar to
House Bill 296 in an effort to save lives.
I was glad to see this legislation signed into
law in April. Ohios parents can be assured that
their children are going to school in a safe envi-
ronment, and one that can provide the right re-
sources and people to help if a life-threatening
allergic reaction should occur. I wish Ohios stu-
dents the best as they return to school. And to
the parents, please keep in mind that here at the
legislature, we have your best interests at heart
and we hope for great things as your children go
back to school this fall.

I recently got a new job.
Ive had many occupations
over the years, and so far Id
say this one has been the hard-
I am a teacher.
This whole thing happened
sort of by accident, or luck,
as others might say, consider-
ing I never set out to do this;
it wasnt in my life plans or
anything although having
kids and getting married were
also not in my orchestrated
future. The best things to hap-
pen to me have been that way,
though. As John Lennon said,
Life is what happens to you
while youre busy making oth-
er plans.
I interviewed on a Thurs-
day. I got the job. I had to
have my classroom decorated
by Monday. Open house with
the parents and kids was that
Monday night. Needless to
say, I was a nervous wreck.
Im actually still a nervous
wreck, although its getting
better. This is a job unlike any
I have ever done. Ive taught
at the college level, but now
Im doing sixth, seventh, and
eighth grade. Ive never had
to get a classroom ready or be
responsible for the same stu-
dents for a whole year. And
when I think about that, I to-
tally freak out.
So far I think Ive done
pretty well, although I ques-
tion myself every single day.
Having never done this, Im
not sure if Im ever doing
the right thing. This requires
a completely different per-
sona than the one Id had as
a college instructor. I could
be much more open with the
information I shared, much
more liberal with my thoughts.
Oh, and did I mention this
is a religious school? None
of this bothers me, but Ive
caught myself more than once
on the verge of telling a joke or
sharing a story that wouldnt
necessarily be suitable for this
audience. This is something
I think might take a while in
terms of training my brain.
We go to Mass twice a week
and pray a lot during the day,
which is probably good for
Though this is something I
never thought Id be doing, its
been a life-changing experi-
ence so far. I already love the
students and what Im teach-
ing language arts and art.
Its fullling in a way no other
job has been.
Everyone I work with has
been so kind, welcoming, and
helpful. Its also been rather
daunting, as I do panic when I
think of the work and commit-
ment that comes with it, but
Im trying to focus on one day
at a time. My biggest obstacle
is my own anxiety that comes
along with everything I do in
life Im so afraid of failure. I
know I cant dwell on that.
Even though I never in a
million years saw myself doing
this, its happening. Maybe its
fate. Gods will. Maybe every-
thing happens for a reason.
Teaching is what happened
to me while I was busy mak-
ing other plans.

ing a wave of military gains by
Russia-backed rebels, President
Vladimir Putin has made it ex-
ceedingly clear that he wants a
peace deal for Ukraine on his
terms and will not be stopped
by economic costs.
The four-month conict has
now reached a breaking point,
where Russia and Ukraine
could either negotiate a political
settlement or plunge deeper into
Prospects for a political
settlement looked dim just
a few weeks ago while the
Ukrainian troops were me-
thodically tightening their
noose around pro-Russia rebel
strongholds in the east, but
Kievs hopes for a quick vic-
tory were short-lived. A rebel
counter-offensive has quickly
turned the tide against the
Kiev government, inicting
huge losses and raising the
threat of Ukraine losing ac-
cess to the energy-rich Sea of
The West has accused Rus-
sia of sharply escalating the
conict by sending regular
army units into Ukraine after
months of covert assistance to
the rebellion and has threatened
more sanctions.
Putins apparent response
is: What you call a Russian
invasion is nothing compared
to what we could do and all
options are on the table. The
Kremlins halfhearted denial
of Putins warning that Moscow
could seize the Ukrainian capi-
tal in two weeks if it wished,
which he reportedly made to
European Commission chief
Jose Manuel Barroso last week,
only reinforced the signal that
Russia will not back off.
Putins comment last week
emphasizing Russias nuclear
arsenal appeared to send the
same tough message to the
West: Dont mess with us.
Meanwhile, President
Barack Obama will make a
symbolic show of Western sup-
port for the Baltic countries by
traveling to Estonia on Wednes-
day before heading to a NATO
summit Thursday in Wales that
is expected to draw out plans
to boost the alliances military
commitments in Central and
Eastern Europe.
With ghting raging in east-
ern Ukraine, representatives of
Kiev, Moscow, pro-Russia sep-
aratists and the Organization
for Security and Cooperation
in Europe met in the Belarusian
capital on Monday to begin a
new round of talks on settling
the crisis.
Hinting at a possible com-
promise, the rebels dropped
their previous demand for full
independence and expressed
readiness to discuss keeping the
eastern regions inside Ukraine
in exchange for a blanket am-
nesty and broad autonomy.
The talks were quickly ad-
journed until Friday and it
wasnt clear if the parties could
narrow their differences.
Moscow wants Kiev to
give the rebel regions sweep-
ing powers that would let them
keep close ties with Russia and
allow the Kremlin to maintain
leverage over Ukraine and
prevent it from ever joining
Ukrainian President Petro
Poroshenko has promised to
delegate broad authority to the
regions and guarantee citizens
the right to use the Russian
language, but his plan lacked
specics and it has remained
unclear whether Moscow would
see it as sufcient.
Repeated attempts to nego-
tiate a settlement have failed,
prompting the West to intro-
duce several rounds of eco-
nomic sanctions that targeted
ofcials and businessmen close
to Putin and, nally, entire sec-
tors of the Russian economy.
Russia responded last month
by banning most food imports
from the West.
While most experts agree
that the penalties will eventual-
ly inict signicant damage on
the Russian economy and push
it deeper into recession, they
will need time to take effect. So
far, the sanctions clearly have
failed to serve their stated pur-
pose of stopping Putins hand.
The Russian leader seems
ready to face much tougher
punishment instead of backing
off. If attempts to negotiate a
peace deal fail again and more
economic sanctions come, Pu-
tins likely response would be to
further raise the ante to push the
West into making a deal.
Carving a land corridor
along the Sea of Azov for sup-
plying Crimea, which has faced
power and water shortages
since the annexation, is some-
thing Russia could threaten to
do next.
Russia could have easily
grabbed more land at the start
of the crisis, when it annexed
Crimea in March, but Putin ap-
parently has seen it as an unnec-
essary burden, hoping to reach
a deal with the West to protect
Moscows interests in Ukraine
without an open invasion.
He has failed in his calcu-
lus as the United States and the
European Union have ignored
his demands and methodically
raised the costs for Russia. But
the West, in its turn, also has
clearly underestimated Putins
stubborn resolve and his readi-
ness to risk economic damage,
falsely hoping that sanctions
will force him to back off.
The apparent judgment er-
rors by both sides now have
pushed the crisis closer to a full-
scale war between Russia and
The United States and
NATO have made it clear that
they wont use military force
if Russia invades Ukraine.
Even if Washington decides to
provide Ukraine with weap-
ons, as some U.S. politicians
have urged, such a move will
take time and serve little prac-
tical purpose.
It would take time to train
Ukrainian soldiers, accustomed
to Soviet-made weapons, how
to use Western armaments.
And the Ukrainian militarys
main problem isnt the shortage
of tanks or missiles, of which
it has plenty, but bad training,
poor coordination and the low
morale of hastily drafted con-
The Russian military, in
contrast, now appears more
combat-ready than ever since
the Soviet times. A sweeping
modernization program has al-
lowed the army to upgrade its
arsenals, and a series of massive
drills involving tens of thou-
sands of troops and thousands
of tanks have helped polish sol-
diers skills in the past years.
Despite the latest escalation,
Putin still doesnt seem to con-
sider a full-edged invasion as a
viable option. For his purposes,
tacit support of the rebellion
with certain power of deniabil-
ity is sufcient to keep the con-
ict burning to press Ukraine
and the West into making a
deal on his terms. A massive
invasion would carry devastat-
ing costs for Russia and could
quickly erode his power.
The Russian president may
hope that the continuing ght-
ing in the east, coupled with
deepening economic prob-
lems will eventually soften
Kievs reluctance to compro-
mise. Ukraine is teetering on
the verge of economic col-
lapse, avoiding bankruptcy
only thanks to Western -
nancial aid. Soaring utilities
prices and likely fuel short-
ages in the winter will likely
add to the pressure and foment

Strunkenberg had been placed under the

Ofce in 2013 to ensure better service to
county residents, and according to Riggen-

portion of his job had improved. Various
public complaints came to light after the r-

In the rst phase of the
project, the thousands of pic-
tures of military personnel
were removed from the build-
ing and were digitized and as-
sembled alphabetically. A per-
manent copy of all the photos
are now on disc.
One of the limitations we
had was if anything happened
to the building, we would have
lost all those pictures, noted
Johns. Now if a family mem-
ber wants a copy, they can
come down to us and we can
get them one.
Another limitation was the
building itself. Not only was
there a lack of room to display
more pictures, but the walls
were not insulated, only a bit
of insulation blown in the top.
In August of 1944, the collec-
tion began with approximately
1,000 photos. One month later
the total was close to 2,000.
The number has continued to
grow since then.
Phase two of the project
isongoing right now. A 10-foot
long extension is being added
to the north, allowing more
room for photos. New frames
are being made by National
Door and Trim to house the
collection of veterans pic-

ture, Johns stated. In 2005-

side doing the work. Tom
Wells and Ron Blake showed
their pride in revamping the
Phase three is yet to come.
That involves putting the pic-
tures back in the building and
setting up the displays. Johns
said he is very thankful for
those who have supported the
project to date, but asked for
some other to help nish the
nancial work. Donation
checks can be sent to the Van
Wert County Foundation, he
stated. Just make a note or
memo that the money is for
the Military chapel remodel-
ing project.
Except for the additional
size of the building, Johns
noted the chapel will not look
completely different when the
project is completed. The plan
calls for the original look of
the chapel to remain. Johns
also thanked all those who are
helping with the work, includ-
ing Alexander & Bebout, Na-
tional Door and Trim, Gibbys
Express Photo, Linda Stutz,
and especially former Vet-
erans Service Ofcer Keith
Hes the one who actually
started putting everything to-
gether several years ago. All
the drawings and everything.
He put this all together, stated
Johns. He tried to do it sev-
eral years ago, and for some
reason they didnt approve it
when he wanted to do it. There
was actually some money that
had been donated back then. I
just pulled the plans out of the
drawer. All I did was pick it
up and re-try it and it worked.
Keith is the one responsible.

We have a contract through the county and
one with Morton Salt, just in case, for a 20-
ton minimum, Safety Service Director Shane
Coleman said Friday. We are hearing some
contract bids are coming in at more than $100
per ton and if thats the case, it will effect how
much we can buy. We have a certain amount in
the budget for that.
If we cant get the salt we need, well look
at other options like sand and gravel. We dont
like to use those because they dont melt away
and end up in our catch basins but well make
sure our roads are safe.
Van Wert County has 800 tons, just enough
for a typical winter, according to County
Roads Superintendent Rob Wilhlem.
We have enough to start but if we see any-
thing like we did last winter, well use up to
1,000 tons, Wilhelm said. Wed just like to
nd some salt so we dont have to worry about
Fort Jennings isnt concerned about salt.
The village doesnt use the ice melter.
We try to get the snow off the roadways
before it gets packed down, Jennings Mayor
Jim Smith said. Salt is corrosive to our roads
and then it gets on the tires and then onto drive-
ways and garage oors. We use gravel and just
hit the intersections. Weve never used salt.
Ottoville is the same.
We dont have the money for that ex-
pense, Mayor Ron Miller said. We plan to
have the snow removed as soon as possible and
we work really hard the rest of the year to keep
our roads in the good shape. Salt is very dam-
aging; we use a ne gravel.

Fun, spectacle at New York Fashion
Week on day 2
NEW YORK (AP) New York Fashion
Week kicked into high gear on its second day,
with celebrities dotting audiences at the Lin-
coln Center tents and elsewhere in Manhattan.
There was whimsy at Peter Soms
Spring-Summer 2015 show, and a night
earlier, spectacle and celebrity at Gareth
Pughs dance-fashion happening.
Among the highlights:
Jason Wu says he was inspired by strong
women for his Spring 2015 collection, and
he had two in particular in mind: Actresses
Charlotte Rampling and Diane Kruger.
They have impeccable style, Wu says
of the actresses. I imagined them in every
single piece.
Wu presented what he called a glamor-
ous take on American sportswear casual
looks in rich fabrics. He used silk organza,
suede, leather and what he calls silk can-
vas. A suit that looked like denim was ac-
tually made of silk tweed. In dressier looks,
Wus fabrics took on a shiny, sparkly veneer.
The idea of reection has always been
an important element in my shows, ex-
plained the designer, famous for designing
not one, but both of Michelle Obamas inau-

concentrate on beauty. I wanted to celebrate
In honor of German actress Kruger, 38,
described by the fashion house as Wus pe-
rennial muse, the designer introduced what
he calls his Diane Bag a shoulder bag
made of calf leather, exotic python and croc-

British actress inspired a Charlotte Tote

Cougars up 14-13 when game suspended
DHI Media Sports Editor
OTTAWA Van Werts offense was
held to eight yards on its rst two pos-
On their next two possessions, the
Cougars offense racked up 139 yards and
two scores. Now the Cougars will have to
wait until Saturday morning to see if they
can continue that trend.
After the Cougars took a 14-13 lead
on Ottawa-Glandorf, this Western Buck-
eye League contest was called with 4:04
left in the second quarter with the Titans
driving. The game will resume at 11 a.m.
Saturday at Titan Stadium.
Ottawa-Glandorf struck rst in this
game as they took the opening kickoff
and drove 80 yards in 12 plays as Logan
McDermott hauled in a 10 yard scoring
pass from Zach Unterbrink with 7:22
showing on the rst quarter clock.
On their rst possession, the Cougars
had a quick three-and-out before punting
to O-G. The Cougar defense held O-G
on downs and punter Cole Osting pinned
Van Wert on their own seven yard line.
The Cougars had another three-and-out
as the only yards they picked up were on
an 8-yard scramble by quarterback Colin
Smith on third down.
A short punt by Van Wert had O-G
starting on the Cougar 39 yard line. O-G
needed seven plays to reach the endzone
as Bryce Utrup bulled over from the two
yard line, two seconds into the second
quarter. The extra point attempt failed
giving O-G a 13-0 lead.
On their next possession, the Cougar
offense got rolling behind the running of
Smith and Justice Tussing.
Van Wert averted disaster on the rst
play when a lateral pass sailed out of
bounds for a 3-yard loss. Tussing then
went for 11 yards before having a 15-
yard run called back on a holding call.
Facing third-and-four, Smith found a
hole on the right side of the eld and
scrambled 36 yards to the O-G 30. On
the next play, Smith again called his
own number, found a hole on the right
side and raced 30 yards into the endzone
making the score 13-7 after the extra
O-G picked up two rst downs on
its next possession before the Cougar
defense forced a punt that Van Wert
elded on their own 34. The Cougars
needed just three plays to score and take
the lead.
After a 2-yard pass to Keagan Hard-
mon, Smith went straight up the gut for
eight yards. On the next play, Smith hit
Ryan Stoller with a pass over the mid-
dle. Stoller broke a pair of tackles, then
outran the Titan defense to the endzone
for a 55-yard scoring pass. With the ex-
tra point, Van Wert was up 14-13.
Ottawa-Glandorf was called for hold-
ing on the kickoff starting their drive
at the 10 yard line. Behind the arm of
Unterbrink, the Titans were at the Van
Wert 29 when lightning was spotted
in the distance. The game was called
around 9 p.m.

Jefferson routs Panthers in NWC opener
DHI Media Sports Editor
DELPHOS Weather has
become a concern in the high
school football early season
the last several seasons.
Make that this season.
With many a game in the
area delayed or postponed,
Jefferson played long enough
to grab a 50-7 Northwest Con-
ference triumphover Paulding
Friday night at Stadium Park.
With lightning looming
and nally striking with 11:43
left in the game, it was called.
Our defense was running
around out there, exactly how
we want them to play: with
great effort and enthusiasm,
Jefferson coach Chris Som-
mers said. We were getting
people to the ball. Outside of
one big play, we gave them
nothing. Their offense can
be difcult to prepare for in a
week, but our coaches really
prepared those guys well and
they executed.
Paulding head coach Kyle
Coleman knew what his team
was getting into.
I respect that coaching
staff so much, Coleman add-
ed. I have coached for ve
years and I have never seen a
team play as hard for a coach
as Jefferson does. We are try-
ing to build something here
but it will take time. A lot of
our guys had their rst varsity
action under the lights tonight;
that is tough against a team
like Jefferson.
The Jefferson special teams
and defense set up the Wildcats
(2-0, 1-0 NWC) rst score on
their second possession the
fourth of the night: a 4-play,
33-yarder. It was the Hunter
Binkley show as he hauled the
pigskin all four times, including

dent the scoreboard. Kurt Wol-
lenhaupt added the conversion
for a 7-0 edge with 5:16 left in
the rst period.
Dalton Hicks recovered a

it took the Wildcats 10 running
plays to hit paydirt: a 2-yard
Binkley power run up the gut.
Wollenhaupt made it 14-0 with
1:07 showing in the opener.
The Wildcats next drive
started at their 31 but ended on
the Paulding eight on a fourth-
down incompletion.
Paulding (0-2, 0-1 NWC)
got on the scoreboard on the
third play from the 11. James
Mourey came in at quarter-
back and threw for Preston
Ingol out of the backeld and
down the right sideline. The
sophomore hauled it in at the
30 and outran the defense for
the score. Corbin Edwards
made it 14-7 with 6:24 left in
the half.
On the ensuing kick-
off, sophomore Josh Teman
hauled it in at the ve in the
middle of the eld and found
an alley to the left sideline.
He got a nal peel-back block
at mideld and he outran the
nal defender for a 95-yard
kickoff return. Wollenhaupt
extended the lead to 21-7 with
6:04 showing.
Stockwell set up the Wild-
cats with a 22-yard intercep-
tion return to the Panthers 13
but they were stopped short
at the 2 on fourth-and-1.
However, on the third play
of the ensuing Panther posses-
sion, Ingol was swarmed un-
der in the end zone for a safety
and a 23-7 lead with 2:00 left
in the half.
Binkleys 74-yard kickoff
return for a score was nulli-
ed by a holding call, but the
Wildcats still started at the
Paulding 49. Three plays later
at the 27, Stockwell quickly
found Tyler Talboom wide
open over the middle and the
senior took it to the house with
1:15 left. Wollenhaupt made it
a 30-7 halftime margin.
Jefferson started the sec-
ond half from the 20 and drove

was invoked, starting a run-
ning clock.
The hosts kept it up on their
next drive: a 1-play scoing ef-
fort. Mike Cline took a sweep
around left end and would not

Raiders strike before
lightning does, blast
Otsego 50-7
DHI Media Correspondent
TONTOGANY Wayne Trace struck early and often.
Then Mother Nature took over.
It all added up to a 50-7 Raider rout of host Otsego in non-
league football action Friday night in Tontogany.
Wayne Trace scored on all seven of its rst half possessions
as the Raiders dominated the Knights before severe weather
caused the delay, and eventual early end to the contest. The two
teams waited nearly 50 minutes before nally giving in and
calling the game at halftime due to lightning.
The Raiders opened the game with a 6-play, 63-yard drive
that culminated on a 15-yard run by Cole Shepherd for a score.
Otsego then turned the ball over on its rst play from scrim-
mage. Wayne Trace senior Chuckie Chastain recovered the
Knight fumble, giving the Raiders possession at the Otsego
39-yard line.
Two plays later, Wayne Traces Tyler Showalter scampered
38-yards for a touchdown to push the margin to 12-0 with 8:37
remaining in the opening stanza.
The host Knights closed the gap on the ensuing possession.
Otsego beneted from a 42-yard kickoff return by Trent Soto to
start the possession at the Wayne Trace 38.
Quarterback Colton Battin found Soto for a 13-yard game
to the Raider 25, but the duo was not done. Three plays later,
Battin again connected with Soto for a 22-yard scoring strike
to get the hosts on the scoreboard. Dameon Nigh then split the
uprights on the extra point go pull Otsego within 12-7 at the
6:08 mark.
From that point forward, it was all Wayne Trace.
Showalter capped an 8-play, 65-yard drive on the Raiders
next possession with a 17-yard run for a touchdown to widen
the Wayne Trace lead to 20-7 after one quarter.
The Raiders were far from done, though.
Showalter hooked up with David Sinn on four touchdown
passes in the second quarter to seal the victory.
The duo connected on the rst play of the period for a 30-
yard strike to make it 28-7 with 11:53 remaining in the half.
Sinn then caught the rst of three 38-yard touchdown tosses
with 9:28 left in widening the margin to 36-7.
Showalter and Sinn added two more 38-yard scoring strikes
in the stanza, the last of which came with 1:37 left in the quar-
ter to set the margin at 50-7.
Wayne Trace totaled 442 yards in the half, posting 236 on
the ground and 206 via the passing attack. The Raiders also
totaled 17 rst downs.
Otsego posted 114 yards of total offense, with 79 coming via
the rush and 35 in the air.
Individually, Showalter nished eight of ten passing while
throwing for 206 yards. The senior quarterback also ran for 180
yards on a dozen carries.
David Sinn totaled ve receptions for 145 yards for Wayne
Trace as well.
Riley Tercha paced Otsego offensively with 45 rushing
yards on seven carries. Trent Soto added a pair of receptions
for 35 yards.
Wayne Trace returns to action on Friday for a key non-
league contest at Crestview.
Wayne Trace wideout Seth Saylor breaks into the
open eld during week one play against Paulding

LIMA Theres an old
saying in football when suc-
cessful programs like Lima
Central Catholic and St.
Johns consistently make the
playoffs: They dont rebuild,
they reload.
LCC has reloaded
in the past decade
- qualifying for the
playoffs eight of the
last nine years. The
T-Birds lost a number
of big playmakers, in-
cluding Mykale Rogers, Kalito
Lasenby and Darius West from
last years 8-3 squad. Gone also
is coach Jerry Cooper.
St. Johns on the other hand
is rebuilding from a team
known for power running to
a new 1-back, shotgun offense.
Even the defense was rebuilt as
the coaching staff abandoned
the 4-3 formation for a new 3-3-
5 scheme to take advantage of
the experience at linebacker and
defensive backs.
Those teams met up
Friday night at Spartan
Stadium, but weather
forced a postponement
with the T-Birds lead-
ing 7-6.

Panther defense holding
strong as game suspended
DHI Media Sports Editor
ROCKFORD Facing an all-state running back and a
team that rushed for nearly 300 yards in week one, Parkway
head coach Dan Cairns expected to see a heavy dose of Ar-
lington senior Austin Rettig when the Panthers hosted the Red
Devils on Friday.
Arlington came out throwing instead, but used the ground
game effectively enough to take a 14-0 lead into halftime when
the game was suspended due to weather. Arlington will receive
the kickoff to start the third quarter when the game resumes at
1 p.m. on Saturday at Panther Stadium.
After the Panthers punted on their opening possession, Ar-
lington took the eld after a tremendous punt return with just
31 yards separating them from the endzone. A quick pass from
Dominique Fuller to Aaron Starr moved the Red Devils to in-
side the Panther 25, but Fuller was pressured and called for
intentional grounding two plays later. The drive stalled and the
Red Devils were forced to try a eld goal from 33 yards, which
missed wide.
After Parkway turned it over on downs near mideld, the Red
Devils again took to the air. Fuller found John Solt for a 9-yard
gain, and hooked up with Matt Glick for a 16-yard strike on a
third-and-17 play. That left a fourth-and-1 and Rettigs rst chance
to shine. The Panther defense was strong, but Retting gained just
enough to move the chains. On the next play, the standout senior
broke into the open eld for a 16-yard run. Two plays later, Retting
took it in for a touchdown from four yards out.
Parkways best drive came as the clock was winding down
in the rst period. Sage Dugan took a pitch from Justin Barna
and raced off left end, streaking through the defense for a 20-
yard gain. After Barna completed an 8-yard pass to Ryan Laut-
zenheiser, it was Cody Coffman who took a handoff and broke
through arm tackles on his way to a 32-yard gain.
Parkway had the ball inside the Red Devil 15, but an option
pitch from Barna was mishandled and ruled a fumble, which
Arlington recovered.
We came in with a game plan, and I still think what we
were trying to do is there, we just didnt execute, Cairns said at
halftime of the contest. Were going to come out in the second
half and just try to get back to work with what we had origi-
nally planned to do.
The Red Devils continued to use Fuller and the passing
game to move the ball, but had drives stall on consecutive pos-
sessions to open the second quarter. In both cases, Lautzen-
heiser and the Panther defense got excellent penetration and
stuffed a Rettig carry short of the line to gain.
We knew they had a rst-team all-state runningback, and
our game plan was to stop him, Cairns noted.
The Red Devils extended their lead when Rettig scampered
in from four yards out with 1:07 to play in the half. That Ar-
lington drive was aided by a controversial pass interference call
against the Panthers, moving Arlington deep into Parkway terri-
tory. Fuller found Rettig down the left sideline on a third-and-17
play to extend the drive before Retting ran it in two plays later.
Fuller was a surprising 11 of 14 passing for Arlington with
154 yards. Rettig carried the ball 15 times for 52 yards.
Everything we saw, we though they were a spread team
that was trying to run the ball, so we came in with that in
mind, Cairns continued. That being said, I think we got to
the quarterback a number of times. He doesnt look very com-
fortable back there. If theyre going to beat us, theyre going to
beat us throwing.

College Football: USC at Stanford;
Michigan State at Oregon; Virginia
Tech at Ohio State; Michigan at
Notre Dame; Northern Illinois at
Northwestern; BYU at Texas.
Pros: New Orleans at Atlanta;
Cincinnati at Baltimore; New
England at Miami; Indianapolis at
Denver; Cleveland at Pittsburgh;
Minnesota at St. Louis.
USC: Could this be the re-emergence of
the Trojans as a national power? I think
Oregon: Speed, speed, speed. Spartans
defense has too many holes and Ducks
have too much speed.
Ohio State: Lets hope that last weeks
vomitous performance was a wake-up
call for Buckeyes.
Michigan: Wolverines are angry
deservedly or not on the ending of
the storied series.
Northwestern: Northern Illinois doesnt
have Jordan Lynch.
Texas: Charlie Strong pays dividends
already in Austin.
Atlanta: Falcons will unveil a healthy
ofense from the word go and a decent
enough defense.
Cincinnati: Lets see what the new
Bengal ofense has to ofer.
New England: Tom Brady has
something to prove.
Denver: Welker will be missed but
Broncos have too much frepower and
enough defense.
Pittsburgh: Browns have to prove this is
a rivalry but they dont have the ofense
right now.
Minnesota: No Sam Braddock for Rams.
Nuf written.
College Football:
Stanford: Both teams opened the
season with blowout victories and
fgure to be tested Saturday when the
Cardinal look to extend the nations
longest home win streak to 18 games
as it faces the USC Trojans. A lot of
experience on the Stanford side could
be the diference; I am taking the
Oregon: How often do you see the
reigning Big Ten champion, still
undefeated, as a 2-touchdown
underdog in a non-conference game?
Its a strange situation for sure but
admittedly, having to go into Eugene
and take on Marcus Mariota & Co. is
no small task. Reason being the Ducks
racked up nearly 700 yards of ofense
in their opening game against North
Dakota. It could be the best game of
Week 2 and might prove to be one of
the most important of the season, with
College Football Playof implications.
They may not get 700 yards in ofense
but the Ducks get the win in Eugene.
Ohio State: The Buckeyes avoided
a scare last week against Navy; the
Braxton Miller-less Buckeyes take on
the Hokies in the Shoe. The Buckeyes
trailed 7-6 at the half and by a point
midway through the third quarter. But
they pulled away late behind some big
plays by the defense and by Millers
replacement at quarterback, freshman
J.T. Barrett. I think they learned a
lot from last week and will have no
problems with Va. Tech.
Notre Dame: The fnal matchup
between these two rivals; however,
it could be anti climactic. The series
dates to 1887 but now a mere 127 years
later, the matchup will come to an end.
Albeit they havent met every year,
the Wolverines lead the series 24-16-1.
Michigan won last year but I am going
with the Irish to take the win, fnishing
out the rivalry.
Northern Illinois: NIU has never won
against Northwestern in 7 tries (0-6-
1). Northwestern lost to Cal last week,
while NIU pounded Presbyterian, yeah
it was Presbyterian; but a win anyway. I
am taking Northern Illinois to grab their
frst win over Northwestern.
BYU: BYU pounded the Longhorns a
year ago and Texas looks to avenge that
loss, but injuries will make it that more
difcult. The Texas Longhorns will look
to silence the critics Saturday against
a BYU team, which embarrassed Texas
last season. I think the injuries will put a
squash on the Texas revenge plans.
New Orleans: The Saints are perennial
favorites to make it to the Super Bowl
and get that quest started with a win
over the Falcons.
Cincinnati: The Bengals really need a
good start to the season after fzzling
out in the playofs again last year. I am
going to play homer here and take the
Bengals to get of on the right foot.
New England: The Pats should be very
solid again this year with Gronk back in
the line up; that will give New England
that little extra edge; they get the win
in Miami.
Denver: Peyton Manning gets a crack at
his old team right out of the gate this
year. After a abysmal performance in
the Super Bowl, the Broncos get things
going with a win over the Colts
Pittsburgh: I would again love for the
Steelers to go 0-16 but since that wont
happen, they might as well get their
frst win on the year in week one by
defeating the Browns.
Minnesota: The Rams are in big trouble
this year with the loss of Sam Bradford;
it could be a very long year and it
begins on Sunday with a loss to the
Stanford: Defense wins games; as a
Dallas Cowboys fan I know this is all too
true. Stanford can stop the Trojans from
stealing their 17-game home winning
Michigan State: This is a heart pick. The
Spartans arent necessarily the better
team but theyre really wanting to
prove they can play with the hot shot
Ducks by shooting them down this
Virginia Tech: If you have never read
my picks before, you will quickly learn
which teams I refuse to pick to win and
the ones I am loyal to a fault (*cough*
*cough* Dallas). My favorite college
team is whichever team is playing
OSLose so gooooo Hokies!
Notre Dame: I went back and forth on
this one forever so if you are placing
bets, pick Michigan.
Northern Illinois: This game wasnt in
ESPNs Top 25 Overview so I dont know
why Im picking Northern Illinois but I
BYU: Heres a little poem for you. My
favorite color is blue. I choose BYU and
hopefully Texas will lose.
New Orleans: Im trying to actually get
one game right this week with this pick.
The Saints ofense will prove to be too
much for Atlanta.
Cincinnati: The Reds have punted their
championship chance away this year,
maybe the Bengals picked up the ball
and will have better luck at winning a
Miami: Bill Belicheat and Tom Brady
lost to Miami last year; I hope they do
it again.
Denver: I love DeMarcus Ware on
defense and with Peyton Manning
on ofense, I dont see how it gets any
Pittsburgh: Im not sold on Pittsburgh
but at home, I think theyll pull out a
Minnesota: I dont know why but I
rarely pick the Rams to win. The Vikings
look to have a better ofense with the
Rams losing Sam Bradford.
Stanford: Stanford is 20-1 at home
under Coach Shaw. USC is a preseason
favorite to make the fnal four but the
Cardinals will rule at home.
Michigan State: This is the biggest non-
conference game of the season so far
and MSU is a big underdog. Connor
Cook has played his best in big games
(remember the game he had against
Ohio State last year in the Big 10
Championship game?). Michigan State
pulls the upset.
Ohio State: OSU looked lost for the frst
3 quarters against Navy. Coach Urban
Meyer will get J.T.Barrett and his team
back on track. The Buckeyes have 35
straight home openers; make this 36.
ND: The end of a great rivalry. Michigan
is 0-10 against ranked teams since 2006.
The Irish are 4-0 in home night games.
Notre Dame will claim bragging rights
for years to come!
BYU: Davis Ash wont be starting for
Texas due to concussion. The BYU
defense will rattle backup Tyrone
Swoops and turnouver will push BYU
to victory.
Saints: Matt Ryan and the Falcon
defense were awful last season. Coach
Sean Payton and his QB Drew Brees will
rock the Georgia Dome.
Ravens: The Ravens will be without star
running back for 2 games (which is a
joke). The home team has won 8 eight
out of the last 9 meetings. The Bengals
road woes will continue.
NE: Bill and Tom.enough said.
Patriots rule.
Denver: Peyton Manning still has
something to prove against his old
team and the world after their awful
performance in the Super Bowl last
season. The Mile High fans will go
home happy again as the Broncos pass
game torches the Colts in the battle of
the horses.
Steelers: As a Browns fan-I watched
the Browns preseason game. Lebron,
Johnny Football, nor even Superman
can save the Browns from another
diasspointing season. Steelers win at
Vikings: QB Sam Bradford is out and the
Vikings actually have talent this year at
defense. Minnesota wins big.

Knights hold one-score edge at Hicksville
DHI Media Correspondent
HICKSVILLE A battle of playoff
teams from 2013 started on Friday night
but, like many other area games, wont
get to nish until Saturday. When play
resumes at Hicksville High School, the
visiting Crestview Knights will hold a
20-12 lead on the scoreboard with 10:03
remaining on the third quarter
The rst two-plus periods saw
a back-and-forth affair.
Crestview forced a quick three
and out of the Aces to start the
game, but on the Knights rst
play on offense, a fumble gave
the football back to Hicksville.
The Aces wasted no time af-
ter the fumble getting a 14 yard run from
quarterback Barrett Crall and a six yard
run from Logan Neidhardt. A Knights
ag pushed Hicksville in the red zone,
but a Jake Lippi sack and false start by
the Aces derailed the drive and the Aces
turned it over on downs.
After the turnover on downs, the
Knights ipped the eld with a 32-yard
catch and run from Jordan Miller on the
Preston Zaleski pass. A bad snap on the
next play put Crestview behind the eight
ball, but on fourth-and-four Zaleski went
up the middle and was tackled just short
of the line to gain.
Hicksville used two big pass plays
when Garrett Crall found Jonny Giesige
for 14 yards and Mason Hostetler for 16
yards to put the Aces in scoring position.
A 7-yard run from Crall and an 8-yard
run from Logen Neidhardt put the Aces
on the Knight 15 yard line. On the next
play, Crall ran it to the endzone, but a ag
brought the play back.
Crestview was able to hold
strong again and prevent the
Aces from scoring on the drive.
The Knights then went on a
7-play, 81-yard drive during which
Zaleski ran for 71 yards including
a 1-yard quarterback sneak to give
Crestview a 7-0 lead after Jake
Tatum added the extra point with 8:46 left
in the second quarter.
Hicksville nearly knotted the
score without running an offen-
sive play. Phil Karacson too the
ensuing kickoff back inside the
Crestview one yard line before
being brought down. fall just
short of the goal line. On the next
play, Crall punched it in. Hicksville went
for two but was unable to convert and
Crestview had a 7-6 lead.
The Knights went on another long
drive as Lippi picked up 13 yards on
three carries and Malcolm Oliver was
able to nish the drive off with a 20-yard
run with 3:01 left in the second period.
The point-after attempt failed and the
Knights lead by a score of 13-6.
The Aces started their next drive with
a big pass inferences call on the Crest-
view defense. Hicksville then converted
a rst down on third-and-4 when Crall
scrambled for seven yards. The Crall run
set up a 22-yard touchdown pass from
Crall to Hostetler with just 46 second
left in the rst half. With the score 13-
12, Knights, the Aces went for two and
managed a short completion but couldnt
make it into the end zone.
The Knights took the ball to start the
second half and after a false start and a
bad snap, Crestview had it second down
on their own 31 yard line. Zaleski took the
snap went up the middle made
his way to the far sideline and 69
yards to pay dirt as the Knights
took a 20-12 lead after Tatum
tacked on the extra point.
The game made it three more
plays before the referees delayed
and later suspended the game for
lightning. The game will pick up on Sat-
urday morning at 11 a.m. The Aces will
have the ball on their own 34 yard line on
fourth down with seven yards to go.
Gardner tallies 50th goal as LadyCats win
DHI Media Sports Editor
FORT JENNINGS Kalida senior
Jackie Gardner garnered her 50th ca-
reer soccer goal in pacing the Lady-
Cats to a 2-0 Putnam County League
triumph over host Fort Jennings Friday
at Fort Jennings Athletic Complex.
I dont know if she knew she was
close but we didnt tell her before the
match. We wanted her to do it in the
natural flow of things and not force
anything and she didnt, Kalida coach
Dave Kehres explained.
Gardner is second all-time in the
Kalida program to former teammate
Summer Holtkamps 78.
The LadyCats (3-2-1, 2-0-0 PCL)
scored both goals in the second half,
controlling the ball most of the way
and outshooting their hosts 11-0 on-
They went up 1-0 at 35:33. With se-
nior Makenna Vorst having possession
in the middle of the 18-yard box, she
simply would not be denied. With Mus-
keteer keeper Erin Osting (13 saves vs.
16 shots on-goal) slightly out and try-
ing to grab it, Vorst flicked a 7-yarder
just past her and the ball trickled over
the goal line for a 1-0 edge.
The Musketeers (1-3-2, 0-2-1 PCL)
tried to tie it at 32:07 on one of their
few forays at the goal but before a
shot could be taken, Kalida netminder
Morgan Knapke came out to snap up
the ball.
At the 23:40 mark, Gardner got
control in the host end, took a couple
of dribbles to her left and launched a
30-yarder toward the goal. With the
wind at her back and Osting playing
on gimpy legs, it went high over the
keeper and into the twine for a 2-0
Erin has been bangled up since
our first match but she wants to be
in there. We were thinking of sitting
her but our trainer felt she couldnt do
any more damage, so she played and
gutted it out, Musketeer mentor Rod
Wagner explained.
The visitors kept up the assault but
Osting and her back line kept them at
bay the rest of the contest, coming up
with numerous stops.
The first half, it wasnt nearly as
one-sided, even though the hosts still
had few chances to string a scoring se-
quence together.
The best chance for either team
came at 20:12 when junior Makenne
Richey tried to curl in a corner kick
from the left side but Osting knocked
it away.
This was one of our better
matches, especially the first half.
I thought we played well; it was a
better effort than we had Tuesday,
Wagner added. I felt we passed the
ball better, moved and communi-
cated. We just couldnt put enough
together to get shots. We are trying
to get people healthy and meld our
youngsters with our veterans. If we
can play like this all the time, well
be OK.
For Kehres, he saw the return of an
injured player: Brittany Kahle.
This was her first action this
season and she did well. Were work-
ing her slowly back in, he added. I
really like how well we played de-
fensively; we are gelling back there
and that leads to few scoring chances
for the other team. That makes it so
much easier to take chances offensive-
Both teams return to action Thurs-
day: Jennings hosts Crestview and Ka-

Manziel mania subdued as Steelers host Browns
AP Sports Writer
Brian Hoyer did his best
to avoid the hype when the
Cleveland Browns drafted
Johnny Manziel and the un-
avoidable chaos that seems to
follow the Heisman Trophy
winner wherever he hangs his
No TV.
No Twitter.
No Facebook.
No newspapers.
And really, no pressure.
Its like you are living in
the 60s or 70s, Hoyer said.
You arent getting caught up
in it. It actually makes life
pretty simple.
Four months later, Hoyer
remains Clevelands starting
quarterback for now any-
way heading into Sundays
opener against Pittsburgh.
Keeping Manziel at bay mov-
ing forward will require an
equally simplistic approach.
Im not saying that I come
out here every day thinking
that Im going to lose my job,
Hoyer said. I honestly feel
more secure (now) than I ever
have. I just think that its always
good to have that chip on your
shoulder and know that youre
always trying to prove people
wrong and prove yourself
While Hoyer has won over
new head coach Mike Pet-
tine, the Steelers are expect-
ing to see Manziel take the
NFLs top selling jersey onto
the eld and into the huddle at
some point to see if the man
matches the mania. And to be
honest, they dont really care.
No matter what theres only
going to be one quarterback at a
time, Pittsburgh defensive end
Cameron Heyward said. So
we look forward to playing both
and getting after it.
Ravens and Bengals
start anew with rematch
AP Sports Writer
BALTIMORE (AP) The Cincinnati
Bengals and Baltimore Ravens begin a new
regular season the same way they ended the
last one: facing each other in a meaningful
AFC North duel.
When these longtime rivals last met,
the Bengals ushered the Ravens out of the
playoff picture with a 34-17 victory. It was
a crushing blow for the defending Super
Bowl champions, who missed the postsea-
son for the rst time in six seasons under
coach John Harbaugh.
The Bengals advanced as division champs,
but after another rst-round exit they return
in 2014 with new offensive and defensive
coordinators. Also, theyre starting a rookie
center in Russell Bodine, and rookie running
back Jeremy Hill takes over for BenJarvus
Green-Ellis, who was released.
Otherwise, Cincinnati invested heavily
in keeping the team intact for a postseason
that consists of more than just one game.
Thats the main thing that everybody is talk-
ing about right now, quarterback Andy Dalton
said. Until we win one, people are going to keep
saying that we havent done it and we cant do it.
Thats denitely a goal of this team.
The Ravens objective is to simply get
back into the playoffs. After going 8-8 last
year, Baltimore hired former Houston head
coach Gary Kubiak as its new offensive
coordinator and signed free agent Steve
Smith to augment the receiving group. The
Ravens went 4-0 in the preseason, but this
is the rst game that counts since that lam-
entable nale last December.
We always feel pretty condent, but
they got after us a little bit last year and
we didnt play very well in that nal game,
quarterback Joe Flacco said. I think were
ready to go. Its the beginning of a new
year. Thats going to be the start of it this
A few things to know about the Ravens-
Bengals matchup:
HOLD THE RICE: Ravens running back
Ray Rice begins his two-game suspension
for domestic violence and will be replaced
by Bernard Pierce, who makes his second
NFL start. Pierce hits the hole quicker than
Rice, which might be benecial in Kubiaks
aggressive attack, but the absence of Rice
leaves inexperienced Justin Forsett and
rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro as the backups.
I have a lot of condence in them, ob-
viously in running the ball, but even more
so in standing back there and protecting
and doing all the things that dont quite
come as naturally for those guys, Flacco
rst NFL game offers him the two-pronged
challenge of going up against Pro Bowl
tackle Haloti Ngata in one of the loudest
stadiums in the NFL.
Hes big, strong guy, Bodine said of
the 6-foot-4, 340-pound Ngata. Hes kind
of crafty. Hes good at reacting to blocks
and countering off stuff. Its all about
me. I have to go out there and handle my
technique and my responsibilities and my

Indians edge White Sox in 10 innings
CLEVELAND (AP) Pinch-hit-
ter David Murphy, activated from the
disabled list before the game, drove
in the winning run with a bases-load-
ed single in the 10th inning and the
Cleveland Indians defeated the Chi-
cago White Sox 2-1 on Friday night.
Murphy, who pulled a right oblique
muscle on Aug. 9, lined a 1-2 pitch to
center off Ronald Belisario to score
pinch-runner Chris Dickerson and
give the Indians their 11th walkoff
win of the season.
Yan Gomes started the inning with
a triple to left off Maikel Cleto (0-1).
Michael Taylor crashed into the wall
trying to make the catch and the ball
rolled several feet away.
Shortstop Leury Garcia nally
retrieved the ball and threw it in as
Gomes slid into third.
Michael Bourn was intentionally
walked before Eric Surkamp issued
an intentional walk to Lonnie Chisen-
hall that loaded the bases. Surkamp
battled back from a 3-1 count to strike
out Jason Kipnis before Murphy, bat-
ting for Roberto Perez, delivered.
C.C. Lee (1-1) worked out of a
bases-loaded, one-out jam in the 10th.
The Indians, coming off a series in
which they lost three of four against
Detroit, are six games behind Kansas
City in the AL Central.
Chicago ace Chris Sale allowed
one run in six innings, lowering his
league-best ERA to 2.09.
Indians rookie T.J. House matched
Sale, giving up one run and striking
out seven in seven innings.
Carlos Santanas RBI single in
the rst gave Cleveland the lead, but
Alexei Ramirezs third-inning homer
tied the game.
Ramirez left the game after be-
ing hit on the left foot by a pitch from
House in the fth inning.
Jose Abreu extended his hitting
streak to 14 games with a rst-inning
single. He added a two-out triple in
the third.
Chicago has dropped 19 of 27, in-
cluding six of seven on the road.
Sale allowed ve hits, with three
coming in the rst inning. Tyler Holt
led off with a single, but Jose Ramirez
bounced into a double play. Michael
Brantley singled, stole second and
took third when catcher Tyler Flow-
ers throw went into center eld.
Sale struck out ve, walked one
and threw 98 pitches. Because of a
lack of run support, the left-hander
has one win in his past seven starts.
And that came against Detroit on Sat-
urday when he struck out 13 in seven
Chicago rst baseman Paul
Konerko, who will retire when the
season ends, has a broken bone in his
left hand and is sidelined indenitely.

Granderson, dArnaud
homer, Mets beat Reds 14-5
AP Sports Writer
Granderson and Travis dArnaud
each hit a three-run homer and
drove in four runs on Friday night,
powering the New York Mets to
their third straight victory, 14-5
over the Cincinnati Reds.
The Mets hit ve homers for
the rst time since 2006. Wilmer
Flores and Dilson Herrera had solo
shots, and Lucas Duda hit a two-
run homer in the ninth. New York
scored in every inning except the
third, getting a season-high in runs
and tying its season high with 18
New York has won three in a
row for the rst time since the All-
Star break.
Bartolo Colon (13-11) gave up
two runs and seven hits, including
Devin Mesoracos solo homer, in
seven innings. He walked one, the
26th time in 27 starts this season
that he has walked two or fewer.
Granderson ended an 0-for-18
slump with an RBI double in the
rst inning off Alfredo Simon
(13-10), who has only one victory
since he was picked for the All-
Star game. Simon is 1-7 with a 5.27
ERA in 10 starts since then.
Cincinnati changed colors,
wearing green caps and trim as part
of an Irish Heritage Night promo-
tion. The result was the familiar:
A sixth loss in seven games. Cin-
cinnati is 15-31 since the All-Star
The Reds have lost 42 consecu-
tive games in which theyve al-
lowed at least six runs, tying the
club record. They did it twice pre-
viously, in 1901-02 and 1910-11.
New York took control in the
fourth. Simon intentionally walked
Duda to face dArnaud, who hit a
three-run homer on the rst pitch,
his 13th of the season. He leads NL
rookies in homers and has the most
by a rookie catcher in Mets history.
His four RBIs were a career high.
Granderson connected for his
three-run shot in the sixth off Ryan
Dennick, making it 10-2. Duda
hit his 27th homer in the ninth off
Daniel Corcino.

From page B1
The Blue Jay offense was
still in high gear after scor-
ing 40 points against Elida
last week, and wasted no time
lighting up the Spartan Sta-
dium scoreboard. On the rst
play, Evan Hays took the end-
around pitch for a 5-yard gain.
Nick Martz hit Aaron Reindel
in the at for a 61-yard touch-
down with only 3:34 off the
clock. The extra point was
wide left as the Jays took the
early lead 6-0.
The Thunderbirds took
over from their own 31 and
went into a hurry-up spread
offense. Quarterback Ethan
OConnor completed to Dimi-
tri Floyd as he cut for extra
yardage. On third-and-10,
OConnor hit a wide-open
Nick Tainger for a 28-yard
gain. OConnor quickly went
to the opposite side to Aidan
OConnor for a 11-yard pick-
up. LCCs Alex Krumel had
a nice run to the 12. Thats as
far as the T-Birds would get
as Zach Fischer picked off the
OConnor pass at the eight.
The Blue Jays went on a
long, time-consuming drive
the next time they got the ball.
Martz completed passes to
Reindel (twice) and Eric Vogt
as they drove to the LCC 35.
Martz took off to the 22 for a
Blue Jay rst down and then
passed to Hays to the 15. A
pass to Tyler Conley in the
corner of the end zone fell in-
complete and the Jays drive
Ethan OConnor came out
throwing with completions
out to the T-Bird 41. A run by
Krumel put the ball at mid-
eld. Then OConnor threw a
perfect bomb to Tainger for
the 50-yard touchdown with
6:05 remaining in the half.
James Harrison picked up
a rst down for the Jays with
a 5-yard run on third and one
for the Jays, but the offense
couldnt advance the ball past
mideld and was forced to
The Thunderbirds took over
at their own 43 and OConnor
hit Floyd for a 9-yard gain. A
OConner keeper picked up
the rst down. Heavy pressure
from Alex Haunhorst on the
rush forced a incomplete pass
as the T-Birds faced 4th-and-5
and the Jays took over with 33
seconds remaining in the half.
St. Johns received the kick
to open the second half at the
20. A Martz pass was over-
thrown on the second play and
picked off by Ethan OConnor
at the 26 and the T-Birds were
in business. However, LCC
gave a golden opportunity
right back to St. Johns with a
fumble by Krumel at the 12.
A keeper by Martz got out
of the shadow of the goal posts
to the 16 but a holding call on
Delphos stymied the drive.
After a pair of punts, light-
ning caused a delay at the
6:22 mark and the game was
eventually postponed to 3 p.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) The average 30-year U.S. mort-
gage rate this week remained at a 52-week low of 4.10 percent
for the third straight week.
Mortgage company Freddie Mac also said Thursday the av-
erage for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who
are renancing, slipped to 3.24 percent from 3.25 percent.
At its 52-week low of 4.10 percent, the rate on a 30-year
mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year.
Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been
trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to
keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to
end in October.
The low rates appear to have boosted U.S. home sales. Also,
moderating increases in home prices such as occurred in July
should help support sales by making homes more affordable.
Real-estate data provider CoreLogic reported Tuesday that
home prices rose in July but at a slower rate compared with
earlier this year.
Greater affordability has helped the housing market re-
cover over the spring and summer after sales and construction
fell earlier this year. Sales of existing homes rose for a fourth
straight month in July to their strongest pace in nine months.
And a measure of signed contracts also increased in July, sug-
gesting that nal sales will rise further in coming months.

(AP) One of two broth-
ers convicted of leading a
nationwide foreclosure scam
was sentenced Wednesday to
35 years in federal prison for
stealing titles to more than
300 homes.
Federal prosecutors in
Sacramento said 40-year-old
Charles Head of Pittsburgh
and 17 other defendants ob-
tained more than $90 million
in fraudulent loans and caused
more than $50 million in loss-
es between January 2004 and
June 2006.
Head and his brother, Jere-
my Michael Head, 34, of Hun-
tington Beach, were convicted
in May 2013 of mail fraud and
other charges. Charles Head
was convicted of additional
mail fraud charges in a second
trial in December.
Jeremy Head is awaiting
sentencing. Their attorneys
did not immediately return
telephone messages after
Wednesdays sentencing.
The pair operated Orange
County-based Head Finan-
cial Services, which prom-
ised to help distressed hom-
eowners avoid foreclosure.
But prosecutors said they
instead used misrepresenta-
tions, fraud and forgery to
trick the owners into signing
over the titles of their homes
to straw buyers who were
friends of or related to the
defendants or were solicited
on the Internet.
Once they had the title,
prosecutors said the defen-
dants applied for additional
mortgages to drain the re-
maining equity in the homes.
The original owners were left
homeless, without equity and
with damaged credit ratings.

WASHINGTON (AP) A surprising drop in hiring and in
the number of people seeking work in August sent a reminder
that the U.S. economic recovery is still prone to temporary slow-
Employers added just 142,000 jobs last month, well below
the 212,000 average of the previous 12 months. The unemploy-
ment rate fell to 6.1 percent from 6.2 percent. But that was be-
cause more people without jobs stopped looking for one and
were no longer counted as unemployed.
Analysts took Fridays Labor Department report in stride.
They noted that other gauges of the economy from manufac-
turing and construction to auto sales remain solid. Layoffs
have dwindled, too. Analysts also noted that month-to-month
volatility in hiring is common even in a healthy economy.
But the dip in hiring also suggests that, though the Great Re-
cession ofcially ended more than ve years ago, the economy
has yet to shed some of its lingering weaknesses. Held back by
sluggish pay growth, for example, consumers continue to spend
Most economists foresee an economy thats poised to make
further strides, punctuated at times by modest setbacks.
The gures will inevitably spark speculation that the US
recovery is somehow coming off the rails again, said Paul Ash-
worth, an economist at Capital Economics. However, were not
too concerned by what is probably just an isolated blip.
The report showed the smallest job gains in eight months.
The weaker-than-expected numbers make it unlikely that the
Federal Reserve will speed up its timetable for raising in-
terest rates. Most analysts expect the rst rate hike around
The Dow Jones industrial average initially fell, but stocks re-
turned to positive territory by Friday afternoon. The yield on the
10-year Treasury note dropped to 2.43 percent from 2.45 per-
cent late Thursday. That suggests that some investors sought the
safety of bonds and foresee no Fed rate increase anytime soon.
At least two temporary factors weighed on hiring in August,
government ofcials said. A strike at Market Basket, a grocery
chain in the Northeast, contributed to an unusually large drop
of 17,000 jobs at food and beverage stores. That strike has since
been resolved, which could lead to a rebound in hiring this
Ofcials also noted that the number of auto-manufacturing
jobs fell 4,600 in August after a surge of nearly 13,000 in July.
Auto jobs can be volatile during summer because carmakers
often temporarily close factories in July to retool them for new
models. That didnt happen this year, which boosted Julys auto
job numbers and held down Augusts usual rebound.
Yet auto sales were strong in August, and last months job
losses in that sector are unlikely to be repeated, analysts said.

WASHINGTON (AP) Hackers suc-
cessfully breached, but no
consumer information was taken from the
health insurance website that serves more
than 5 million Americans, the Obama ad-
ministration disclosed Thursday.
Instead, the hackers installed mali-
cious software that could have been used
to launch an attack on other websites
from the federal insurance portal.
Health and Human Services spokes-
man Aaron Albright said the website
component that was breached had been
used for testing and did not contain con-
sumer information, such as names, birth
dates, Social Security numbers and in-
come details.
The initial intrusion took place July 8,
but it was not detected until Monday of last
week during a manual scan of system logs.
HHS said the component that was breached
did not have a rewall, or intrusion detec-
tion software, installed on it. Technicians
manually scanning logs discovered the
breach Aug. 25 and took action.
The Homeland Security Department,
which helps safeguard federal systems,
said the scope of the attack was limited
to one server. There is no evidence an at-
tack was subsequently launched from the
tainted machine.
Federal computer systems are the tar-
gets of hundreds of cyberattacks every
day, but this is believed to be the rst
successful one involving
The health care site had numerous
technical problems when it was launched
last fall and was initially unworkable for
most consumers. Among the issues that
concerned the governments own techni-
cal experts was that security testing could
not be completed because the system was
undergoing so many last-minute changes. eventually passed secu-

The U.S. and 10 of its
key allies agreed Friday that
the Islamic State group is a
signicant threat to NATO
countries and that they will
take on the militants by
squeezing their nancial re-
sources and going after them
with military might.
With the Islamic State

will be able to mount a sus-

Having More Retirement
Accounts is Not the Same
as Having More Money.
When it comes to the number of retirement
accounts you have, the saying more is better is
not necessarily true. In fact, if you hold multiple
accounts with various brokers, it can be difcult to
keep track of your investments and to see if youre
properly diversied.* At the very least, multiple
accounts usually mean multiple fees.
Bringing your accounts to Edward Jones could
help solve all that. Plus, one statement can make it
easier to see if youre moving toward your goals.
*Diversication does not guarantee a prot or protect against loss.
To learn why consolidating your
retirement accounts to Edward Jones
makes sense, call your local nancial
advisor today.
