Fire and Rescue take icy plunge for training

Fire and Rescue personnel from Delphos, Van Wert City and Putnam County Sheriffs Office took an icy plunge in the Delphos-Gillmor
Reservoir Saturday morning for ice rescue training. Delphos Fire Chief Kevin Streets said about 10 men assembled for the exercise when a fire
call came in from Spencerville Invincible Fire Department for mutual aid. Streets said the training is crucial this time of year with waterways

For The Record

new round of snow could push Boston to season record

BOSTON (AP) After cold and snow that
set February records, southern New England
entered March with another round that could
push Boston over its 20-year-old snowfall record.
With 102 inches, Boston needs 5.7 more to
break the 1995-96 record of 107.6.
Snowfall of 4 to 6 inches was expected by
early today across the area, with up to 8 inches
in southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Less is expected in northern Massachusetts and
New York state, and on Cape Cod.
We have come this far, we might as well
break the record, said William Babcock,
National Weather Service meteorologist in the
Taunton, Massachusetts office. We have a couple of storms to push us over the record. Once
that is done we wont complain if we dont get
any more snow.
Since its early March, we still have plenty
of time, he said.
The snow Sunday into today will be wetter
than those earlier in the season, continuing the
concern about potential roof collapses.
If you have flat roofs, it is certainly going to
add to the weight, Babcock said.
Elsewhere, heavy snow was expected in the
central Rockies and Great Basin and heavy
rain was predicted in parts of the Southwest.
Snow was falling from the Ohio Valley into the
Northeast, with freezing rain in the Mid-Atlantic.

February 2015 was one for the record books
in the Northeast.
The Northeast Regional Climate Center at
Cornell University says Buffalo, Syracuse,
Binghamton and Ithaca, New York, shivered
through their coldest months ever.
The average temperature was 10.9 degrees
in Buffalo, beating the 1934 record of 11.4. The
monthly average was 9.0 in Syracuse, 12.2 in
Binghamton and 10.2 in Ithaca.
February record lows were also set in Hartford,
Connecticut, at 16.1; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania at

20.9; and Portland, Maine at 13.8.


Weather forecasters in Colorado issued blizzard and avalanche warnings as Pacific moisture
continued to bring snow and strong winds to
the Continental Divide on Sunday. The storm
was expected to last through today, with another
storm expected Tuesday. The National Weather
Service issued a blizzard warning for Wolf Creek
Pass and the Colorado Avalanche Information
Center issued avalanche warnings for the South
San Juan, Sangre de Cristo and Gunnison areas.
The avalanche danger in southern Colorado has
been increased to high.

one child, died in weather-related incidents in
Two people were killed when a driver lost
control on a snow-covered highway in Lebanon
on Saturday when the car skidded into a tractor-trailer stopped because of an earlier crash on
Interstate 44. The 20-year-old driver survived,
but both passengers were ejected and killed.
In Nevada, Missouri, a boy died after falling
through an ice-covered farm pond. Emergency
crews rushed to the scene Saturday morning
after a caller said three children were in the
pond, according to fire officials. A bystander
pulled one boy from the pond, and another
boy was able to get out on his own, The Joplin
Globe reported.
Illinois and Indiana got 8 inches or more of
snow Sunday from the same weather system.


A 3-year-old Lansing, Michigan, girl was
hospitalized in critical condition after getting
stuck overnight outside her familys apartment

one of the coldest Februaries on record in

According to police, the girl was treated for

severe hypothermia. A relative found the girl
on a sidewalk in front of the apartment complex
about 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Lansing police Sgt.
Joe Brown told the Lansing State Journal. The
temperature was 5 degrees at the time.

Crews worked to clean up a mudslide that
shut down a stretch of the Pacific Coast Highway
northwest of Los Angeles early Sunday. The
area received between a quarter-inch to half an
inch of rain overnight, the weather service said.
The threat of showers will linger until today
morning when the cold low-pressure system
moves out.

Winter weather over the last few days in North
Texas prompted organizers of the Cowtown
Marathon in Fort Worth to cancel the race. The
marathon, along with a 50K ultra marathon
both of which had been set for Sunday were
canceled. The half marathon, however, was held
Sunday morning.
Heidi Swartz, Cowtown executive director,
said the safety of runners, volunteers and spectators was the top priority.

Knitters offer
warmth to needy
with scarves
A flash of color from the
handmade scarf and a simple,
handwritten note drew extra
attention to a snowman in
Goodale Park.
If youre stuck out in the
cold, take one! the note read.
Another scarf and note
adorned a nearby tree. And
another. And another.
In all, 25 colorful scarves
fluttered from the snowmans
neck, trees and signs in the
Victorian Village park this
The scarves and the
notes were placed there by
a woman who spent her free
time knitting in hopes that
chilly passers-by would take
them to help fight off the
record cold that has settled
over Columbus. Another
round of extreme cold and
snow is on the way.
Those who may not have
homes or shelter this time
of year have been on my
mind and heart, said Beth
Boring, 26, a Grandview
Heights native who lives in
I figured that foot traffic
would be high enough there
that anyone who may wander
that way would spot them and
either take one if they needed one or spread the word
to anyone who might need
one, she said about choosing
Goodale Park to share her
artwork and warmth.
Knitters across the country have been playfully
yarn-bombing trees and
sculptures and other fixtures
in public places for years.
They wrapped their fuzzy,
sweater-like work around
poles and trunks to add color
and draw attention to the art
of knitting
Boring yarn-bombed a few
trees last winter, but her project was cut down within 24
hours. She decided to try a
different knitting project this
She read a news story
about knitters in Detroit,
Indianapolis, Toronto and
elsewhere who have been
yarn-bombing with scarves.
While relatively new to
Columbus, the scarf-bombing social movement has
gained worldwide popularity
through a group called Chase
The Chill, based in Easton,
Pa. It has spawned numerous
similar events across North
America and the hashtag
#chasethechill on Instagram.
According to its Facebook
page, Chase The Chill
Chillicothe placed 50 scarves
in that Ross County citys
Yoctangee Park in November,
and it donated 77 more to the
Seeds of Hope homeless charity. A group of seven women
who meet each Wednesday at
St. Peter Catholic Church in
Chillicothe to knit and share
new scarf patterns organized
that effort.
Group organizer Karen
Blumberg, 46, said she has
spotted some of her scarves
being worn around town. Its
a pleasure to give to people in
need, she said.
Although it would seem
that the need for scarves
would end soon, it wont
go away for the foreseeable
future: Columbus was expected to see highs on Sunday in
the 30s and another round of
snow throughout the day that
continues into today, Tuesday
and Wednesday.
Boring started knitting
scarves long before winter.
She was at it in September
during free time at home and
during breaks as a receptionist at the Columbus West Park
rehabilitation and nursing
center. Boring received most
of her materials as donations
from nursing-home residents
who had leftover yarn but no
longer possess the fine motor
skills required to knit.
With the help of four
friends, Boring hung her
scarves at the park on Sunday.
She has offered knitting lessons to her Facebook friends
in an effort to get more people
involved in donating scarves.
There are so many ways
you can give back with this
hobby, Boring said.
She estimates having spent
more than 100 hours knitting
for this project, as each scarf
takes an average of five hours
to complete.

The 1850 Federal Census for Marion
Township, Allen County, lists Caspar, his wife
Mary and children: Mary, Clem and Elisa living
in the John Welch household. The oldest child,
John, age 17, was living in Jennings Township,
Putnam County, with the John B. Vonlander family, learning the shoemaker trade. Casper owned
40 acres and had cleared 13 acres with his slow
oxen to grow wheat and Indian corn. He would
later add other tracts until he owned 71 acres.
Casper was a carpenter and general woodworker
and continued that trade in addition to farming.
After coming to the area, he worked at his trade
building churches, mills, etc. in different parts
of the country.
In 1854, he crafted a cabinet for his wife,
Clara Maria. The 6 and 1/2-foot high walnut
cabinet, on which he had carved his and his
wifes names across the top, shows the workmanship and pride he took in each detail of
his creation. He had learned and practiced the
guild trade of carpentry in Germany, making
him a skilled craftsman whose work in the
new colony would be much in demand.
On 3 April 1856, a month before her 17th birthday, Caspar and Claras oldest daughter, ANNA
age 31, in St. Johns Catholic Church, Delphos.
John Frederick, son of Johann Henry Lause and

The R-rated Focus, overwhelmingly appealed to adults, with 88 percent of
its audience older than 25 not a good
sign for Smiths appeal to a new generation of moviegoers who werent around
for his triumphs in Independence Day.
Nevertheless, there arent many stars
who could do better with a drama in late
February. And Focus should play well
internationally, where Smiths popularity remains strong.
This still goes on his balance sheet
as a number one debut, said Paul
Degarabedian, senior media analyst for

still draw an audience, particularly with
a film thats R-rated and not aimed at the

Special Olympics Chicago President Casey Hogan said

nice surprise.
Gaga recently announced her engagement to Chicago
Fire actor Taylor Kinney. Photos show her and a bare-chested Kinney going into the water together.
Vaughn also made the plunge. The native of the Chicago

Its been a successful year, Hoffman
added. We had nine wins coming off
losing seven seniors (from the 2013-14
season); were inexperienced. We have
a few girls who have made some big
improvements in the second half of the
season and some of the performances
we had at the end (of the season) were
encouraging. We can build upon that.
Crestview senior Kennis Mercer had
a personal 5-0 run to end the third and
both teams went deep into their benches
in the fourth.
The Lady Knights (23-0) move on to
the Lima Senior district where they will

Lady Lancers fall in sectional finals

DHI Media Sports Editor
VAN WERT Ottoville
used a relentless pressure
defense and a 10-player rotation to wear down Lincolnview
in a Division IV sectional final
at Van Wert on Saturday night.
The Lady Green held
their opponent to 11 first-half
points and found their own
offense in the second half on
the way to a 48-28 victory.
We just couldnt get any easy
looks,offensively, Lincolnview
head coach Dan Williamson
explained. (Ottoville) did a nice
job of pressuring us, even in the
half court.
They just wore us down.
They play eight, nine, 10 kids,
and they dont lose a whole lot
(athletically) when they sub,
Williamson added. We play
five or six kids for 32 minutes;
that just wears you down.
After falling behind
6-0 in the opening quarter,
Lincolnview finally got on
the board with a fast-break
layup from junior Ashton
Bowersock with just 53 seconds left in the period. A Julia
Thatcher drive a half minute later made it 6-4, Lady
Green, after eight minutes.
The sluggish offense continued for both teams in the
second but the Lady Lancers
tied the score twice on a
pair of Bowersock jumpers
before taking a 9-8 lead on
Thatchers made free throw.
It was the last lead that
Lincolnview would enjoy.
The Lady Green went
ahead on a pair of free
throws, then extended their
lead when Annie Lindeman
knocked down a baseline
jumper. Though Lancer
senior Stephanie Longwell
scored on an up-and-under
move from the low block, the
Big Green rattled off the next
six points to take a 18-11 lead
into the locker room.
In its first two possessions
of the third quarter, Ottoville

Ottovilles Alicia Honigford (25) drives the baseline against

Lincolnview senior Claire Clay during Saturdays sectional final game in Van Wert. Honigford finished with nine
points and a team-high six rebounds as the Lady Green
advanced with a 48-28 win. Ottoville will take on Crestview in Thursdays district semifinal at Lima Senior. (DHI
Media/Tina Eley)
gave itself some breathing
room. A Lexie Wannemacher
offensive rebound turned
into a 3-point play that
opened a 10-point spread.
Then, Brooke Mangas drove
through the lane, scored, and
was fouled on the next trip
for another 3-point play.
Suddenly, the Lancers were
staring up at a 13-point margin.
Still, the Lady Green defense
wouldnt allow many open
looks, and Bowersock was the
only Lancer to consistently
find the range with a jumper.
The 5-10 southpaw hit back-toback jumpers midway through
the third quarter but could only
draw her team to within nine.
Ottoville then closed the quarter and ended the Lancer
hopes with a 9-0 run for a
35-17 lead after three.

(The defense) was really

good both halves, Ottoville
head coach Dave Kleman said
following the game. We just
didnt do much offensively in
the first half. We missed probably five point-blank shots
that we normally put in.
We really try to wear the
other team down. Of our nine
kids that we play, all those kids,
at one time or another during
the season, had 13 or 14 points
(in a game). My quandary is
that I dont know whose going
to do it each night, so Ive got
to play nine or 10 kids and see
who is doing it that night.
Freshman Alana Williams
baseline drive-and-1 pulled
Lincolnview to with 15 to
start the final period but
thats as close as it would
get. By the 3-minute mark,

both squads were emptying

their benches.
The loss ends the season
for the Lancers and the high
school careers for seniors
Thatcher, Longwell, Hannah
McCleery and Claire Clay.
I love this group of girls;
this has been so much fun
this year, Coach Williamson
said. Ive not had a better
group of seniors since Ive
been here. This season has
been a lot of fun.
Ottoville moves ahead to
the district semifinal where
it will take on an undefeated
Crestview team that throttled Delphos Jefferson on
Saturday night. That game
will tip off at 6:15 p.m. on
Thursday at Lima Senior
High School.
Ive been looking at
Crestview for a long, long
time, Kleman said with a
smile. I know (Crestview
coach) Greg (Rickard), weve
been doing this for a long,
long time, so its going to
be an interesting game on
Thursday; its going to be
real exciting.

LadyCats, Vikes advance

to rematch at Districts

Boatload-plus of
area wrestlers move
on to Districts
DHI Media Correspondent
LIMA Step one of the journey to The Schott is complete
as 26 area wrestlers are moving on after surviving two days of
wrestling at the Lima Central Catholic Division III Sectionals.
Coldwater ran away with the team title with 220 points,
easily out-distancing runner-up Wayne Traces 148.5. St.
Johns finished in fifth place with 113 team points, followed
by Columbus Grove (106) and Jefferson (98). Spencerville
(63) landed in the number 10 spot ahead of Van Wert (61),
Lincolnview (20.5) and Parkway (20).
Wayne Trace had the most district qualifiers with a total
of six grapplers moving on to districts to be held next Friday/
Saturday at Hobart Arena in Troy.
St. Johns will be sending five wrestlers onto the next round
for Blue Jay coach Derek Sterling.
Wes Buettner is a returning sectional champion and had
a fairly easy tournament, winning all of the matches by pins,
including the finals in 29 seconds, explained Sterling.
Buettners title tied him with Brian Merschman for most
career victories by a Blue Jay wrestler.
The second sectional champion was sophomore Brett
Vonderwell in the 160-pound bracket. He took a 3-0 lead in
his championship match with Adas Dylann Hannah with an
escape and takedown and hung on for a 3-2 victory. The Jays
also had a pair of runner-ups as Alex Haunhorst (170 pounds)
and Austin Schulte (220 pounds) moved on.
The final Blue Jay to qualify for districts was senior Justin
Siefker at 145 pounds with a third-place finish.
Brett took control of every one of his matches this weekend and was simply outstanding to win his first sectional title,
Sterling added. Alex really improved his technique but faced
a returning State qualifier in Austin Windle of Ada in the
finals. Austin did what he has done for us all season before
running out of gas in the last match. Austin missed a month
of practice with a jaw fracture and hell be ready for districts
after we work on conditioning this week. Justin was in the
toughest weight class of the tournament and wrestled hard like
he always does to survive.
Jefferson will also be well represented as five Wildcats
finished in the top four to survive another week. The Wildcats
didnt have an individual sectional champion but four out
the five wrestlers won their finals match with pins to survive
another week.
Andrew Foust recorded his pin of Allen Easts Cody
Kreitzer in 1:52 to qualifying at 113 pounds. Wyatt Place
(132 pounds) pinned Lee Dues and Tyler Foust (182) defeated
Adas Jared Woodland. At 220 pounds, Reid Corzine pinned
Eli Wiswasser of Columbus Grove to place for the Wildcats.
Josh Kroeger also qualified for districts placing fourth in the
170-pound bracket.
Our wrestlers made the best of their opportunities and we
are moving on with five wrestlers, commented Wildcat coach
Mike Wilson. Im so proud for our guys but extremely happy
for Reid Corzine and Josh Kroeger. Those two have struggled
at times this year and wrestled their best when it counted.
Andrew Foust was our most improved wrestler today and
Wyatt Place continues to work hard. Finally, Tyler Foust suffered a tough loss in the prelims but bounced back with another
great performance.
Lima Central Catholics Jack Huffman became the winningest wrestler in Thunderbird history with his sectional title at
182 pounds.
Columbus Grove will be taking a handful of wrestlers to
Troy next weekend with their best finish by Preston Brubaker
at runner-up in the 106-pound bracket. Christian Stechschulte
scored a close 9-8 decision over Zaine Kotterman to place third
at 152 pounds. Andrew Nichols also placed third with a default
victory over Spencervilles Caleb Sutherland at 195. Other
Bulldogs to move on were Nick Ogle (138) and Eli Wisswasser
(220) with fourth-place finishes.
In addition to Sutherland, Spencervilles Tyler Dues qualified with a pin of Quinton Stabler of Wayne Trace in a mere 32
seconds to place third at 285 pounds.
We had some tough semifinal matches this weekend,
explained Bearcat coach Zac Clum. The new state-seeding
criteria made it difficult for some of our good wrestlers with
not-so-outstanding records, putting them in difficult matches
early. But Im proud of Caleb and Tylers accomplishments
and am looking forward to another week.
Lincolnview will send Alex Rodriquez on to districts after
finishing third in the 120-pounders. Rodriquez landed a 10-2
major decision over Coldwaters Sam Muhlenkamp in the
finals to punch his ticket for the next round.
Alex recovered after suffering a hard-fought loss in the
preliminaries to finish with a victory, Lancer coach Curtis
Miller said. Im looking for Alex to finish near the top at districts, too ,but hell have to defeat someone that defeated him
before to be able to qualify for the State tournament.
Van Wert will be sending a pair of runner-ups to Hobart
Areana. Ryan Stoller suffered a 4-0 loss to Brandon Soules in
the finals to finish second at 152 pounds. Kaleb Cantrell was
shut out 3-0 by Blufftons Blake Sampson in the final match
of the sectional tournament but will be moving on after an
impressive weekend.
We came into sectionals with high expectations and came
out with two qualifiers and an alternate, Cougar wrestling
coach Ben Collins commented. Im happy with the effort
displayed by Ryan, Kaleb and Brody Couts but its time to get
back to work to get better to keep moving on.
Area wrestlers placing fifth and qualifying as district
alternates include: Couts; Cody Dickerson and Cole Bellows
(Spencerville); and Andrew Burgei (Columbus Grove).

OTTAWA St. Johns

and Kalida had played at
Kalida Jan. 5, with the host
LadyCats emerging with a
37-24 victory.
The LadyCats defense
gave the Lady Blue Jays
similar fits Saturday night
in a Division IV OttawaGlandorf Sectional final and
then needed to hold off a
spirited fourth-period rally
for a 56-46 triumph on The
Supreme Court.
The victory sends Kalida
(19-5) onto a rematch with
Leipsic at 8 p.m. in the Lima
Senior District semifinals.
In the earlier matchup Saturday, Leipsic (19-4)
trounced Pandora-Gilboa
(8-15) 62-41.
Kalidas defense particularly in the half-court
caused the Jays some problems early and got tougher
as it went on. The Blue Jays
standard man-to-man defense
also forced the LadyCats to
be patient and turned them
over five times in the stanza
(12 total). After three ties and
four lead changes with the
Jays (9-15) talking their final
lead of 11-10 on a bomb by
Emily Grothouse (11 markers) at 22 seconds, Kalida
took a 13-11 edge on a 3-ball
from the top of the key by
Brittany Kahle (12 markers)
with 4.6 ticks showing.
The Jays were 3-of-9
shooting and Kalida 3-of-6 in
the opener. However, Kalida
was 6-of-7 at the line (19of-30 total for 63.3%) to the
Jays 3-of-4 (12-of-16 for the
night for 75%).
Lexie Hays (12 points, 6
rebounds) tied it for the Jays
quickly in the second canto
but a 3-pointer by Kylie
Osterhage (18 counters) with
six minutes left gave the
Maroon and White the lead
for good at 16-13. Kalidas
man-to-man half-court D
steadily clamped down on the
Blue and Golds offense and
held them to 4-of-13 shooting. Kalida was 5-of-10 from
the floor and continued to get
to the free-throw line (4-of8). When Katelyn Siebeneck
hit the 2nd-of-2 foul shots
with 24.3 ticks on the clock,
they led 30-20.
The Jays have had the tendency this season to have one
disastrous quarter that ultimately leads to their demise.
Saturday night, that was the
third stanza. They were held
to a mere two fielders (2-of10 shooting with 5 turnovers
out of a game total of 12)
Hays at 6:15 to get within 30-22 and Jessica Geise

High School. (DHI Media/Kenny Poling)
(8 rebounds) at the 3-minute
mark to make it 35-24. On
the other end, Kalida was
a smooth 6-of-10 and when
Nicole Recker hit a free toss,
they led 41-24.
The LadyCats appeared to
be ready to put the finisher on the Blue Jays in the
finale, building up a 50-27
lead on a 3-point play by
Osterhage halfway through.
The Jays had other ideas
as was also a trend they have
had this year of playing to
the very end, no matter the
score. Grothouse and Hays (5
points each), plus a steppedup defensive intensity, led the
way back. They were within 53-46 on a foul shot by
Grothouse with 1:00 showing
but the rally ran out of gas
as Kahle hit 3-of-4 freebies
down the stretch to finally
subdue the Jays.
Kalidas defense is very
good but we also had some
opportunities good looks
at the basket, especially from
outside that we did not
knock down. When you dont
capitalize on those, good
teams like Kalida will on
the chances they get, Jays
mentor Dan J. Grothouse
explained. We didnt have a
lot of turnovers but it seemed
they made something positive
out of every one we had, either
a score or free throws; they
are so disciplined and wellcoached. They were aggressive in taking advantage of our
mistakes and we had the one
really bad quarter again that
has plagued us all year.
Kalida coach Adam Huber
was extremely pleased for
the most part with his

I thought for the first

three quarters, it was probably the best half-court
defense we have played this
year. We were really quick
with our help-side, rotations
and getting back out to their
shooters; overall, it may have
been the best weve done this
season, Huber added. The
fourth quarter, we kind of let
down our guard and we knew
St. Johns would come back;
Beezes teams will fight you
to the end and they have too
much pride to just walk away.
Offensively, the last time we
faced them, we shot really
well, too, but didnt get a lot
of opportunities. We also shot
our free throws well enough
not great but enough to
move on. It doesnt matter if
its one or 20 points you win
by; you just have to win at
this time of year.
The loss also ended the
high school careers of Blue
Jay seniors Grothouse, Tara
Vorst, Rebekah Fischer, Sam
Kramer and Halie Benavidez.
It gets even harder to say
good-bye to seniors, Coach
Grothouse, finishing his 26th
season with a 369-229 career
mark, added. They are the
reason we didnt give up when
down 20 and didnt all year.
They showed their character
and leadership throughout a
difficult season and, as always,
will be missed next season.
Kalida ended up 18-of-37
from the field 6-of-14 long
range for 48.6 percent;
with 29 rebounds (9 offensive) as Allison Recker had
nine and Jacquelyn Gardner

Lady Cavaliers survive Grove in OT

DHI Media Correspondent

WAPAKONETA Columbus Grove

kept battling back from deficits Saturday
evening against Coldwater.
In overtime, the Lady Bulldogs magic
finally ran out as the Cavaliers scored the
final five points of the basketball game
to come away with a 60-56 in the second
game of the Division III sectional finals
at Wapakoneta High School.
The win sends the Cavaliers (1410) to the district semifinals Thursday
at 6:15 p.m. at Elida against OttawaGlandorf (21-2). The Titans were a
66-33 winner over Elmwood in the first
game Saturday.
Columbus Grove saw its season end
at 13-7.
Coldwater trailed only twice in the
game, both coming in overtime.
They built a 7-point lead in the opening quarter three times as they were up
21-14 after eight minutes.
The second quarter saw the Cavaliers
lead by as much as eight points as
they were up 31-23 before the Bulldogs
closed the first half with a 6-0 run,
including five points by sophomore Jade
Clement as she ended the first-half scoring with a 3-pointer, making the halftime score 31-29.
Columbus Grove tied the game seconds into the third quarter on a jumper by Clement before Coldwater settled down and regained control of the
game, going up 47-37 on a Denise


Schwieterman basket. Clement trimmed

the Bulldogs deficit to eight points with
a driving layup before the Cavaliers
scored the final three points of the quarter for a 50-39 lead.
A Hannah Bruns bucket to start the
final quarter had the Cavaliers up 52-39
before the Bulldogs started to make
things interesting.
Columbus Grove put together a
10-0 run that had them within 52-49 as
Clement and Mackenzie Wurth both hit a
3-pointer. A free throw by Brooke Welsch
pushed the Coldwater lead back to four
before Carlee McCluer came up with a
steal and basket with 1:44 left. Columbus
Grove tied the game at 53-53 on a basket
inside by Lynea Diller with 54 seconds
left. Both teams had a chance to win the
game in the final seconds as Coldwater
missed a 3-pointer, then got the ball back
on a jump ball on the rebound. With
five seconds left, the Bulldogs Brooke
Hoffman came up with a steal and raced
downcourt only to have her running
jumper deflected away as time expired.
Columbus Grove continued its
momentum into overtime as Diller gave
the Bulldogs the lead with a layup.
Coldwater was able to tie the contest on a basket by Lauren Luegers
before Hoffman split two free throws to
give Grove a 56-55 lead with 2:24 left.
Coldwater regained the lead on a basket
by Maura Hoying before both teams
went cold from the field.
With 25 seconds left, Paige Bellman
had a chance to regain the lead for
Grove but missed two free throws.

Maura Hoying was fouled a second later

and sank both free throws to give the
Cavaliers a 3-point lead. The Bulldogs
missed a 3-point attempt and Sarah
Kanney was fouled and hit the first free
throw to seal the Coldwater win.
We a pretty young team, with just
one healthy senior coming off the bench.
When you get down 11 going into the
fourth quarter of a tournament game,
as a coach you get worried because
these are girls that havent been in that
situation before, Bulldog coach Brian
Schroeder said. Im really proud of the
girls; they showed a lot of grit, a lot of
toughness. They battled back and we put
ourselves in position to win the game.
I thought we battled in overtime but
Coldwater is a really good team and they
have eight seniors. Give their girls credit; they made plays when they had to.
This is huge for this group of
seniors, Coldwater coach Connie May
said. They are a tremendous group of
athletes. They have a passion for this
game and they finally cross that hump
and make it to districts, which is huge.
They (Grove) were hitting some shots
and our defense wasnt quite playing
like it normally plays. In crunch time,
our veterans stepped up as we hit some
big free throws and pulled down some
key rebounds.
Welsch led the Cavaliers with 18
points, while Bridget Dues and Erica
Sudhoff both had nine points.
Clement led the Bulldogs with a
game high 21 points and Lynea Diller
had 10 points.

DEAR ABBY: My motherin-law is now in a nursing home.
When my husbands birthday
came around, he was depressed by
the fact that it was the first time in
his life he hadnt gotten a birthday
card from her.
So, after struggling to think of
a Christmas present for her, I went
to the dollar store and bought four
Christmas cards and four birthday
cards (one for each of her children). I took them to her and had
her sign and add a personal note to
each one.
I addressed, stamped and
mailed the Christmas cards. I will
mail the birthday ones at the appropriate times during the year. It
was an inexpensive gift, and kind

of the recipients. Your idea was

lovely, and thank you for sharing
it with my readers. Some of them
may want to emulate it for other
holidays or special occasions.
DEAR ABBY: Three years
ago, our son, who is in his 50s,
cut off all communication with us
and our side of the family. He is
self-employed, a hard worker and
has three siblings.
He wanted us to co-sign on a
loan for a house in another state.
The payments would have run us
out of money in three years, which
would have meant putting our
own home up for sale.
Our reason for refusing was
we didnt want to risk becoming
a burden on our children. My husband and I had to help our own
parents, so we have been frugal
and never lived above our means.
I send postcards to my son to
let him know our love is constant.
Should I stop and just leave him
alone, as he has asked? -- FORGOTTEN MOM IN ARKANSAS

should not have expected you to
do anything at this stage of your
lives that could jeopardize your
remaining years. But if it brings
you comfort, I see nothing wrong

Do just one thing

by Danny Seo
Over 300 million scrap tires
are generated every single year
in the United States, according
to the Environmental Protection
Agency. When your tires need to
be replaced, do it with a reputable
dealer that will recycle your old
ones. Many tires today are being
shredded and used in roadways
and also being made into other

products. But to limit the number

of tires you replace in the lifetime
of your car, try these tips to prolong their life. First, look for new
tires that have longer tread life;
they may cost a little more, but
in the long run, you save money.
Also, be sure to rotate your tires
every 4,000 miles to even out
wear, and balance the tires with
each rotation.

Nurse who survived Ebola says hospital failed her

DALLAS (AP) A 26-year-old
nurse said in a newspaper interview
that a hospital where she had worked in
Dallas and its parent company failed her
when she contracted Ebola while caring
for the first person in the U.S. diagnosed
with the deadly disease.
Nina Pham told The Dallas Morning
News in the interview that she is preparing
to file a lawsuit today in Dallas County
against Texas Health Resources. She said
she continues to suffer from body aches
and insomnia after contracting the disease
from a patient she cared for last fall at Texas
Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.
Pham alleged the hospitals lack of
training and proper equipment and violations of her privacy made her a symbol of corporate neglect a casualty of
a hospital systems failure to prepare for
a known and impending medical crisis.
She also told the newspaper that


Texas Health Resources was negligent

because it failed to develop policies and
train its staff for treating Ebola patients.
She also told the paper that the company
did not have proper protective gear for
those who treated Thomas Eric Duncan,
who died after becoming the first person
in the U.S. diagnosed with the disease
stemming from an outbreak in West
Africa. Duncan, who contracted the disease on a visit to his native Liberia, died
last fall only days before Pham tested
positive for the disease.
She told the paper she was frightened
when Duncan tested positive for Ebola
as panic and fear went throughout the

paper Texas Health Resources used

Nina as a PR pawn.
The Morning News said Wendell
Watson, a spokesman for Texas Health
Resources, declined to address specifics
of Phams allegations.
Nina Pham bravely served Texas
Health Dallas during a most difficult
time. We continue to support and wish
the best for her, and we remain optimistic that constructive dialogue can resolve
this matter, Watson said.
Pham will ask in her lawsuit for
unspecified damages for physical pain
and mental anguish, medical expenses
and loss of future earnings. But she
said that she wants to make hospitals
and big corporations realize that nurses and health care workers, especially
front line people, are important. And we
dont want nurses to start turning into

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) The yearlong

search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has turned up no sign
of the plane, but that doesnt mean its been unproductive. It
has yielded lessons and discoveries that could benefit millions,
including coastal Australians, air and sea travelers and scientists trying to understand ancient changes to the earths crust.
The knowledge gained so far is of little comfort to family
and friends of the 239 people still missing from the plane,
which vanished last March 8 during a flight from Kuala
Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing. While finding the plane
remains the top priority for searchers and investigators, what
theyre learning along the way may prove valuable long after
the search ends.
Benefits of the work so far include:


In the Indian Ocean west of Australia, where experts
believe the plane crashed, scientists have been mapping the
sea floor to aid in the search for wreckage.
Previous maps relied on satellite data, which gave only
rough estimates of the oceans depth. Now, using sonar readings from ships, scientists have mapped an area the size of
Nebraska and have discovered previously unknown trenches
and underwater mountains that rival the height of any on
Australias surface.
Searchers are getting even more detailed sonar readings
using small underwater vehicles called towfish that are
towed just above the sea floor.
Scientists from around the world are eagerly anticipating
the release of the three-dimensional maps and data once the
search is completed.


Stuart Minchin, a divisional chief at Geoscience Australia,
said that when the maps are released and further analyzed,
they will give scientists a better understanding of areas that
during earthquakes are susceptible to underwater landslides,
which can create or exacerbate tsunamis.
He said the information will help scientists pinpoint areas
along Australias west coast that are particularly vulnerable
to tsunamis and enable better warnings and predictions for
coastal residents.


Knowing the topography of the ocean floor also helps
scientists predict ocean currents, said Minchin. That can help
with everything from predicting where a disabled boat might
drift in a search-and-rescue mission to understanding how
marine species spread to new areas.
He said it can even help scientists understand how heat is
distributed through the ocean, which could be used by meteorologists to help fine-tune weather forecasts.


One thing the airline industry learned from Flight 370 is
that more tracking is needed, even for planes expected to fly
over land for their entire journeys.
The International Civil Aviation Organization, which is part
of the United Nations, has proposed that airlines be required to
get position updates from each of their planes every 15 minutes. That requirement is expected to be in place by November
A more stringent requirement would seek updates every
minute if a fire is detected or the plane makes an unusual
move, such as suddenly dropping or climbing in elevation.
That would apply only to jets manufactured after 2020.
Australian Transport Minister Warren Truss said Sunday
that his governments airspace agency will work with Malaysia
and Indonesia to test a new method, which would enable
planes to be tracked every 15 minutes, rather than the previous
rate of 30 to 40 minutes. However, even if such a system had
been in place for Flight 370, it would not have made it possible
to track the plane because transponder and other equipment
were switched off.
Because investigators still dont know what happened to
Flight 370, airlines have no information to help them update
their mechanical systems or flight-training techniques.
