Local generosity
felt in Africa

DELPHOS — Three local organizations
are directly responsible for helping to diagnose Malaria in Katunguru, Uganda. The
Walterick-Hemme Veterans of Foreign Wars
Post 3035, Delphos Rotary and Delphos
Kiwanis all donated funds to Ryan Edelbrock
who traveled to Katunguru, Tanzania, and Peru
with the McMasters School for Advancing
Humanity through Defiance College.
“The school picks a place that needs assistance in their clinic and then the students apply
and once they are accepted, they go out and try
to get donations for supplies,” Edelbrock said.
“I got the donations from the local groups and
then I bought two microscopes, four staining
kits, lancets, chem wipes, gloves, slides and
eye droppers to take with me.”

$1.00

Edelbrock said the clinic he visited in
Katunguru was using antiquated equipment
that didn’t allow the doctors to even see a
slide closely enough to tell if the person had
malaria.
“Malaria is a serious disease there and they
had no way of testing for it,” Edelbrock said.
“They were so excited to get the new microscopes. They were amazed at how much more
they were going to able to do for healthcare
there. What would normally be an hour-long
presentation turned into three days. They
had so many questions and wanted to learn
everything.”
The immediate result of Edelbrock’s visit
was the correct diagnosis of those infected
with malaria. The long-term effects will be
found in 5-6 years when another team goes

Commissioners OK
senior levy request
BY STEVEN COBURN-GRIFFIS
DHI Media Staff Writer
sgriffis@delphosherald.com

LIMA —
The Allen
County
Commissioners on Thursday cleared the
way for a ballot initiative affecting the area’s
senior citizens.
In late June, speaking on behalf of the
Delphos Senior Citizens Center, the Allen
County Council on Aging (ACCA), Senior
Citizens of Allen County and Senior Citizens
of Bluffton, ACCA Executive Director Diane
Bishop addressed the commissioners.
“We Americans are living longer and the
number of requests for service have grown
every year,” she said. “We’re taking a look at
making sure that, currently, we can maintain
services and in the future we can maintain

and grow accordingly.”
In addition to increasing demands for
services, Bishop also pointed to a loss in
funding from the State of Ohio due to its
dwindling financial support of local government. She estimated that Allen County’s
senior services would see a decrease of
roughly $184,000 in funding this year alone
as a consequence.
At present, the four agencies share the proceeds from two property tax levies — .5-mill
and .3-mill, respectively — that appear on
the ballot every three years. Bishop stated
that the four agencies propose combining
the two levies into a single five-year, onemill levy, monies from which would become
available to the agencies in March of 2017.
See LEVY, page 14

COLUMBUS GROVE — Following a Wednesday evening decision made by the district’s board of education, the
Columbus Grove Local School District announced a new
drug testing policy affecting its student body. Effective
August 19, the first day of the 2015-16 school year, all
students in grades seven through 12 that are participating in
extracurricular activities are subject to random drug testing.
Ohio law prohibits testing of students who don’t participate
in school-sponsored extracurriculars.
Superintendent Nicholas Verhoff explained that the decision to implement testing follows a year’s worth of extensive legal research and dialogue with parents and education
professionals. He also asserted that the district doesn’t have
a drug problem, but that the testing is one tool in the district’s arsenal to help students make the right decisions.
“If we can give students one more reason to say ‘no’
when they’re in a peer pressure situation, then I think it’s a
benefit to our kids,” he said.
While the policy received overwhelming support in
its passage, board member Brian Jones dissented. Voting
against the measure, Jones expressed a concern over the
rights of parents in the process. As passed, the policy has
no provision for parental intervention, no “opt out” clause.
Jones cited this absence as his reason for voting against the
policy, a concern shared by parents with whom he’s had
contact.

CLOVERDALE — Even with record and
near record rainfall, construction of a new
church in western Putnam County is well
under way.
Destroyed by a tornado on Nov. 17, 2013,
reconstruction of St. Barbara’s Catholic
Church in Cloverdale began earlier this
spring. Yesterday, carpenters with Metzger
Construction Group began running shingles
along the length of the roof.

The unemployment rate in Allen County
rose from an adjusted 4.6 percent in May to
4.8 percent in June, with 300 more counted as
employed and 100 fewer unemployed, according to statistics released Tuesday by the Ohio
Department of Job and Family Services.
Jobless rates were up in 78 of the state’s 88
counties, including Putnam, Paulding, Allen,
Auglaize, and Mercer counties. In Paulding
County, the rate jumped from 4.7 to 4.9 percent with 100 fewer reported on the job and
no change in the unemployed figures. Mercer
County kept it’s position as the county with
the lowest unemployment rate in Ohio at 3.4
percent, but that was up from 3.1 percent one
month ago. Putnam County showed 200 fewer
on the employed count and no change in the
number of unemployed. The jobless rate was
up slightly from 3.7 in May to 3.8 percent in
June. Van Wert County’s rate rose from 4.1 to
4.3 percent, with the number of unemployed
staying static at 600. In Auglaize County the

jobless rate hit 3.7 percent in June, up from 3.5
percent in May with 600 more in the employed
number and an uncharged number of unemployed.
The lowest rates in Ohio, aside from Mercer
County, were in Wyandot (3.6), Delaware
(3.6), Holmes (3.7), Auglaize (3.7), Putnam
(3.8), Union (3.9), and Hancock (3.9 percent).
The highest county rates in the state were
found in Monroe County (9.6 percent) and
Meigs County (8.1 percent). Every other
county unemployment rate for June was
below 8.0 percent.
The state unemployment rate for Ohio
in June was 5.2 percent, unchanged from
the May 2015 report. Michigan was also
unchanged in June at 5.5 percent. Both Illinois
and Kentucky were down one-tenth of a
percentage point; Kentucky at 5.1 percent
and Illinois at 5.9 percent. Indiana’s rate fell
two-tenths to 4.9 percent in June. The U.S.
national jobless rate also fell two-tenths in
June to 5.3 percent.

for both Ottoville and Cloverdale, remarked
that even with the soggy weather, work on the
new structure is ahead of schedule.
“We were three weeks ahead of estimates,
but then fell a little behind that,” Father Jerry
said. “We’re still two weeks ahead and are
hoping to make that ground back up.”
Father Jerry further remarked that the parish plans to hold services in its new house of
worship before the end of the year.
“I would love it if we could get far
enough ahead to move things forward an
entire month,” he said. “But we expect to hold
a dedication of the new church in November.”

Country
Eichers celebrate wedding anniversary;
countdown begins for daughter’s wedding
BY LOVINA EICHER

Today, July 14, is son Benjamin’s 16th birthday. We want
to bake him a cake, but I forgot to ask him what kind he wants
before he left for work at 5:30 a.m. With eight children it’s
hard to remember which is everyone’s favorite.
Tomorrow, July 15, my husband Joe and I will have our
twenty-second wedding anniversary. Where have all the years
gone? It hardly seems possible that it’s been that many years.
We have so many blessings to thank our Heavenly Father for.
I remember on the morning of our wedding when my mother,
some of my sisters and I got all the chicken in skillets on the
kerosene stoves to fry. Mom, sister Liz, and her husband Levi
took care of the chicken until the cooks came to take over.
Eighteen skillets of chicken were used to fry 300 pounds of
chicken. We started frying chicken at 4:15 a.m. I helped until
it was time to get ready before the guests started arriving
between 6:30 to 7:00 a.m.
Daughter Elizabeth is back to work at the RV factory after
two weeks of vacation. I think she is probably having more of
a vacation back at work! She put in some long days helping
clean and sew here at home. It’s hard to get her to take it easy,
but I told her she has to be careful with having had double
pneumonia. She still feels weak from it.
Timothy and Elizabeth’s wedding is now a month away.
Elizabeth sewed everyone clothes for the wedding except she
still needs to sew her and Susan a white cape and apron that
they will wear at the wedding. Mose and Susan will be their
witnesses. The bride and groom both choose witnesses so
Timothy will choose some from his family.
We were surprised on Thursday with a visit from Uncle
Joe and Betty from Geneva, Indiana and Uncle Menno and
Martha from Phoenix, Arizona. Menno and Martha were out
in the Berne, Ind. area to attend the annual Coblentz reunion.
We were unable to attend but sounds like the Coblentzs had a
lot of fun—like usual. Menno and Joe are my Dad’s brothers.
Sunday evening Timothy’s family surprised Elizabeth with
a birthday cake for her June 14th birthday. Timothy’s sister-inlaw Rachel made and decorated the cake.
This is now Wednesday morning and I need to finish this.
We ended up making a chocolate cake for Benjamin’s birthday
last night. He didn’t want us to put candles on it. I’ll share the
chocolate sheet cake recipe I use. A reader requested a homemade cake recipe. God bless you all!

Reducing corn stalks in surface water
timely late May and June
rains while corn that begins
tasseling in July and August
may be hurt by dry or hot
soil conditions. There may
be a slight advantage to later
maturity corn and soybeans
due to increased photosynthesis, but this advantage
may be small compared to
improved weather conditions
from early planting, early
harvest, and optimal soil conditions.
The benefits of early
maturing corn (<102 days)
and soybeans (< group 2.0
maturity) are 1) lower crop
moisture at harvest (1-3%
points), 2) easier dry down
(warmer temperatures) due
to harvesting in September
versus cold air in November/
December/January, 3) less
chance of wet soil conditions
and soil compaction, and 4)
possible crop premiums for
early harvested corn or soybeans. If the yield is the same
or comparable for early and
late maturing corn and soybeans, early maturing crops
offer many benefits to farmers. Pick the highest yielding early maturing corn and
soybean varieties based on
current agronomic research
to maximize crop yields.
Using ecological or ECO
Farming methods increases
the microenvironment for
maximum crop decomposition. Warmer temperatures
and healthy soils have a balance of fungus and bacteria which allow corn stalks
and soybean residue to
decompose faster than later
maturing harvested crops.
Increased microbial life
along with healthy invertebrates and earthworm populations increases decomposition. If heavy rains occur, the
increased water infiltration
and increased soil-water stor-

age decreases water runoff
and flooding potential, and
the cover crops restrict corn
stalks from floating away.
Farmers have several options to decrease corn
stalks and corn residue from
floating off fields. Some
options are relatively simple to implement while other
options require a long-term
management plan to implement. With some changes in
farming practices, the incidence of corn stalks/residue
in surface ditches may be
reduced.

Farm Bureau offers
interactive ag
experiences at the fair
INFORMATION
SUBMITTED

COLUMBUS — Family
fun and a connection to rural
Ohio are just two of the many
reasons for visitors to stop by
the “Land and Living” exhibit
at the Ohio State Fair, July
29 to Aug. 9. Presented by
Ohio Farm Bureau Federation
and Nationwide, the exhibit demonstrates agriculture’s
link to everyday life.
Visitors to the exhibitcan participate in a variety
of interactive activities such
as playing with local rescue dogs, planting sunflower seeds and learning about
aquaponics. Children can
take a ride through the OFBF
Country Cruise on pedal
tractors or combines, while
parents enjoy learning about
Ohio’s crops, animals and
other important areas of Ohio
agriculture.
Making its debut at the
Land and Living exhibit this year is the OFBF
Canstruction display. The
display will be a tractor and
combine made from canned

food. The Canstruction exhibit is made possible entirely
from Ohio food processors
who donated the canned food,
with help from Ohio farmers
and Nationwide Insurance.
After the fair, all canned food
will be donated to Mid-Ohio
Foodbank.
“The Land and Living
exhibit and Ohio State Fair
showcase the beauty of agriculture in our great state,” said
OFBF intern Maggie Dean.
“With so many fun activities,
the Land and Living exhibit is
exciting and educational for
all ages.”
The Land and Living
exhibit is supported by
Nationwide Insurance, Ohio
Soybean Council, Ohio
Corn Marketing Program
and the Ohio Expositions
Commission. Last year the
exhibit attracted an estimated 300,000 state fair visitors.
The Land and Living exhibit
is located east of the giant
slide and across from the
south entrance to the midway.
There is no additional charge
for visiting the building or
any of its displays.

This this the second article
discussing possible solutions
to reducing corn stalks in
surface water. An immediate
solution is to keep corn stalks
firmly attached to the soil at
harvest by raising the corn
headers. Excess corn residue
flowing through the combine
gets chewed up and is less
likely to be spread evenly
and unattached residue may
float off the field. New harvest innovations are strippers
which strip corn ears and
soybean pods from the plant
yet leave the stalks firmly
attached to the soil.
A farm myth is that GMO
(genetically modified organism) corn decomposes slower than Non-GMO corn. A
study by Dr. Peter Thomison,
OSU Corn specialist, shows
that there is no difference
in the rate of decomposition
between GMO and NonGMO corn. Farmers chop,
turbo-till, or disk corn stalks
to increase decomposition
and these practices have no
effect on corn stalk decomposition. Chopping, turbo-tilling or disking corn stalks
may actually increase the
removal of corn residue from
the field by decreasing soil
attachment, increase surface
compaction, decrease water
infiltration and increase field
flooding.
Corn stalk decomposition
is dependent on three major
factors: soil temperature, soil
moisture, and fungal decomposition. Why are corn stalks
so difficult to decompose?
There are four major reasons: 1) Conventional fields
are dominated by bacteria
microbial communities rather
than a healthy balanced mix

of bacteria and fungus, 2)
Soil that are compacted and
too wet for optimal decomposition, 3) Farmers may be
overusing fungicides which
decrease fungus populations,
and 4) Late maturing corn
harvested late in the year
results in lower soil temperatures and decreases the
time for corn stalk decomposition. Ecological or ECO
Farming systems use fewer
fungicides and have a healthy
balance of bacteria and fungus to decompose corn stalks
rapidly if soil temperatures
are warm, soil moisture is
adequate, and there is adequate time for decomposition
before winter. The real solution is higher soil temperatures and adequate moisture
to stimulate fungal populations to decompose quickly
the lignin in corn stalks.
A major change that
farmers need to adopt is to
plant earlier maturing corn
and soybeans so that the soil
temperature is warmer at
harvest for faster corn stalk
decomposition. Harvesting
early maturing corn and soybeans allows cover crops to
be planted in a timely basis in
September which allows the
crop to become firmly established before winter. Most
cover crops need 60 to 90
days of growth before winter.
Live covers promote healthy
microbial communities and
maximize
invertebrates
(earthworms, beneficial beetles, springtails) for optimal
corn stalk decomposition
OSU research by Dr. Peter
Thomison and Dr. Laura
Lindsey, Soybean Specialist
shows that optimal corn and
soybeans yields are related
to the timing of soil moisture
more so than crop maturity.

T-C Little League tournament Must be nice to
champions and runners-up own a franchise!
Oh, my, how our little National Football League has grown!
I can hardly recognize it from when I was a child not so
long ago!
What am I referring to, my dear — and extremely patient
and enduring —
readers?
The recent revelaJim Metcalfe
tion — via the only
publicly-owned team
in the entire shebang, the Green Bay
Packers — that each
team brought in revenues of $226.4 million last season alone
from the league’s
various and sundry television deals.
Let that all sink in and digest, my weary and resourceful
patrons of the fine arts!
That is 226,400,000 dollars per team.
With a salary cap of around 110,000,000 dollars.
Yikes!
I am in the wrong business.
Think about it.
I just wonder if you took all the net worth of everyone that
calls our fair city their abode and put it in a pile if it would even
approach a light year close to that figure.
I know that as much as I loved the NFL in my youth — a
lot of us did but probably we loved baseball more in those days
— never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that it would
explode to the level it is.
With the TV deals that kicked in last year and other deals
with other outlets about to, that number will rise significantly.
Remember this as well: that figure does not include the
numbers that go to stadiums and pay a pretty significant
amount of lucre to watch it live and in person — generally
watching the massive video scoreboards that every arena has.
Or these days, on their smart phones, iPads, iPods and
the various and sundry thingamabobs that pass for electronic
media in this day and age.
Which brings me to this reason for writing this column —
it’s something I have touched on before.
More and more — right now, it’s the city of St. Louis and
its fight to keep the former Los Angeles Rams from heading
back to the Left Coast — are being held hostage to pay a king’s
ransom to keep these teams.
I do have a problem when cities are almost — almost? —
forced to do so to keep billionaire owners from leaving town
and relocating teams because of the supposed community
benefit to having an NFL — or NBA or MLB — team in town.
When cities are basically footing the bill to build bigger and
better arenas (I include basketball and baseball in this) that the
vast majority of a team’s fans will never be able to afford to
attend a game in — so these men and women can make even
more money and run with it — that bothers me.
Especially when that “benefit” is questionable.
Think of it: when an inept, knuckleheaded, stodgy, buffoon
of an owner like Donald Sterling can turn a lump of coal (the
Clippers in whatever incarnation they were) into a gold mine
even though he ran it like an outhouse for so many years; it
makes you wonder.
In this day and age, how can anyone really lose money, even
when they lose and lose on the field?

ODNR provides outdoor family
fun at the state fair
COLUMBUS — Smokey Bear has
been an Ohio State Fair tradition and
fair-goer favorite since 1959, accord-

ing to the Ohio Department of Natural
Resources (ODNR). This year, a brand
new animatronic Smokey Bear will welcome state fair visitors to the ODNR
Natural Resources Park during the Ohio
State Fair. This new exhibit is just one of
the many free family-friendly activities
available at the park, which will be open
throughout the Ohio State Fair from July
29-Aug. 9.
“The Ohio State Fair provides us
with such a great opportunity to share
the ODNR message about all of the
great recreational opportunities we have
here in Ohio,” said ODNR Director
James Zehringer. “The ODNR Natural
Resources Park gives all of our visitors
a chance to try out activities they might
not get to experience, such as kayaking,

fishing or disc golf.”
This year, visitors will be welcomed
to the park by a brand new Smokey Bear,
whose moving arms, head and mouth
will continue Smokey’s mission of
teaching people about how they can prevent wildfires. The 14-foot-tall Smokey
will greet each child who comes to visit
by name from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
Additionally, a Smokey Bear hot air
balloon will take to the skies and float
high above the fairgrounds the mornings
of July 29-31, weather permitting.

Look at the destruction of the formerly title-contending
Philadelphia 76ers. There is no incentive to really put a good
team out there on a regular basis.
The only good thing is that those who own franchises tend
to be successful business-people and are extremely prideful —
almost arrogant — men who do not want to own a loser.
As much as I get on Jerry Jones and the way he has turned
the Dallas Cowboys into mediocrity, even I don’t believe he
wants this. He’s just too proud to admit he needs real help.

Despoiling the Earth

While there may be legitimate differences of opinion about how much environmental degradation we are wreaking on our planet, there is little doubt that we are causing harm when half a
million people can’t drink the water in their area, as happened last summer in Ohio. I remember as a
child in the 1960s when Lake Erie “died” and when the Cuyahoga River caught on fire. We brought
Lake Erie back from the brink, but we have short memories. The Chesapeake Bay regularly suffers
from fertilizer runoff and last year the Gulf of Mexico had an oxygen-deprived dead zone that was
the size of New Jersey. Surely we can take better care of our planet, and should remember that the air
we breathe and the water we drink is essential to our survival. In the late 1960s when environmental
concerns came to the forefront in this country the earth’s population was approximately 3.5 billion
people. We now have double that number, with over 7 billion people inhabiting our planet. Surely
this calls for some careful thought about our impact on the planet. The earth is a gift from God and we
have a duty as stewards of creation to take care of it. We should do what we can personally to be more
environmentally conscious, and also to consider getting involved in efforts to persuade businesses
and government leaders to take better care of our environment.
— Christopher Simon
The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine
and you reside in my land as foreigners and strangers. Throughout the land that you hold
as a possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land.
Leviticus 25:23-24

Our local churches invite you to join them for their activities and services.

Tandhis
That

by EVELYN MARTIN

After the 1913 flood the canal, as
a viable transportation mode, was finished. only a few localized sections of
the canals existed. For decades, most
people ignored those long, watery ditches, until groups of interested historians
woke up to the fact that there was historical and recreational value in them.
By the 60 and 70s, various groups and
individuals began working to save canal
land and related structures.
Traveling today along the route of
the Miami and Erie Canal, one can
find a variety of communities that have
embraced their relationship with the
canal. Ways have been found to weave
canal history into the heritage of many
regions thus attracting visitors. Hiking
trails, preserved and recreated canal
structures, museums, and interpretive
markers can be found all along the 250
miles of the former canal in towns from
Cincinnati to Toledo. It’s worth searching for these sites.
At its peak, the canal included 19
aqueducts, three guard locks, 103 canal
locks, multiple feeder canals, and a
few man-made water reservoirs. The
canal climbed 395 feet above Lake Erie
and 513 feet above the Ohio River to
reach a topographical peak called the
Loramie Summit, which extended 19
miles between New Bremen, Ohio to
lock 1-S in Lockington, north of Piqua.
Although urban development has
destroyed much of the canal, some locks
and sections of the waterway still exist.
Dayton, like Cincinnati, has many traces
of the canal, but these are not easy to
find in heavily urbanized areas. A good
place to start is the Carillon Historical
Park. This is by no means focused on
the Miami& Erie Canal per se, but rather on the history of the Miami Valley
from the mound builders to the birth of
powered flight. It nicely establishes the
importance of the canal in this evolution. There are 23 buildings spread over
65 acres in this facility. A reconstructed
canal lock and canal supervisor’s house
are part of the exhibits.
An un-restored but complete Lock
15 is located just off Main Street (State
Route 571) in Tipp City. Remains of the
Excello lock are located in the Butler
County Excello Locks Park near the
intersection of State Route 73 and South
Hamilton Middletown Road in Lemon
Township. The massive west abutment
of the Old Nine-mile Aqueduct over the
Great Miami River is still present ca.
400 ft upstream of the Taylorsville Dam
east of Vandalia, Montgomery County.
The abutment terminates a fairly intact
canal segment that extends at least 5
miles north to Tipp City. This segment
includes an intact concrete weir near
the abandoned Vandalia water treatment
plant (aka “Tadmore Station”) and a
ruined lock 16, “Picayune” about halfway to Tipp City along Canal Road.
The canal remains navigable for
canoes or kayaks in the rural region
between Delphos and St. Marys, Ohio.
From north to south along State Route
66, sections of the original canal are visible in Delphos, at a small historic park
located at the Deep Cut in Spencerville,
Lock Two New Bremen, Minster, Fort
Loramie, and Piqua.
Take a short ride aboard the muledrawn “General Harrison” a canal boat
replica at the Johnston Farm and Indian
Agency, 3 miles north of Piqua. The
ride covers a mile of the restored canal.

Canal- Part III
‘Afterlife’

Visitors can also visit the preserved
two-story Federal-style farmhouse of
John Johnston, a farmer and Indian
agent in the earliest days of Ohio statehood and later a canal commissioner.
A modern museum, designed to resemble the 18th-century Fort Piqua, offers
exhibits on Ohio’s Indians and the canal.
For information, call 1-800-752-2619 or
visit www.ohiohistory.org/places/piqua.
Three and one half miles north of
Piqua are the spectacular Lockington
locks. This staircase of locks is one
of the most interesting artifacts of the
Miami and Erie Canal. A series of five
limestone locks carries the canal down
to the old abutments of the aqueduct
crossing over Loramie Creek. The
Sidney Feeder entered the main canal
here. Its source is what is now Indian
Lake. Clear-cut grooves may be seen
in the lock stone from years of towrope
abrasion.
Located in historic Fort Loramie,
Ohio, the Wilderness Trail Museum
stands along the banks of the Miami-Erie
canal. The redbrick two-story museum
was built in 1853 and was used for many
years as a boardinghouse/hotel by travelers on the Miami-Erie canal who were
taking farm products and other goods
to and from Toledo and Cincinnati via
canal boat. These travelers needed an
overnight stopping place; at that time
the present-day museum housed a bar
room, kitchen and numerous bedrooms
for travelers. The first canal boat passed
through Fort Loramie in 1843 and the
hotel location along its banks was ideal.
The village of Fort Loramie (or Berlin,
as it was then known) was originally a
group of log cabins until the Miami-Erie
canal arrived.
Spencerville’s Bloody Bridge spans
the old Miami-Erie canal bed seven
miles south of town on Route 66. Legend
is that it’s named after the bloodstain left
when a man named Bill killed Jack and
Minnie, who were lovers. Minnie, the
daughter of a canal boat captain, fell in
love with Jack, while Bill fell in love
with her. Since he couldn’t have her he
killed both of them with an axe. The
original bridge was replaced in 1904.
The new one is, appropriately enough,
painted red. If you cross it, it’s said that
you might catch a glimpse of Minnie’s
face in the water below. This story is a
very famous one in the Lima area, one
that’s recounted every October and written up for Halloween stories.
The Miami and Erie Canal Deep Cut
by Spencerville is a preserved, 6,600
feet long, segment of the canal, In order
to avoid using locks to go over a ridge,
the canal was dug deeply into the ridge,
far more than the 5-foot depth of the
canal itself. Workers dug the canal bed
up to 52 feet into the blue clay ridge that
separated the St. Marys and Auglaize
River watersheds. It is a United States
National Historic Landmark.
A 40-mile hiking and biking trail
along the Miami & Erie Canal Towpath
was created through the Ohio Trails
Act. The trail is broken into five segments ranging from 3 miles to 14 miles
between the towns of Delphos and Fort
Loramie. Each segment has different
historical features from the old canal,
including locks and aqueducts. A booklet can be obtained at parks.ohiodnr.gov/
Portals/parks/PDFs/canals/ME_canal_

The Delphos Canal Commission and

One Year Ago
Jennings Memorial Association is currently holding its Heritage China Drive
geared toward securing enough place settings to accommodate attendees of all types

Museum is an outgrowth of a youth project put together in 1987 to raise “The
Marguerite”, a canal boat hull, from
the Miami and Erie Canal. Fifty-seven
young people, ages nine through eighteen, under the direction of a 12-yearold, obtained the necessary permits from
the Ohio Land Office, raised the nearly
$5,000 and found the extensive variety
of equipment necessary to remove the
hull and place it in storage. However,
the cost of chemical preservation and the
need for a permanent home for the hull
were beyond the means of these boys
and girls. A historical and educational
foundation to create a canal museum in
which the Marguerite could be displayed
was founded. In 1989 the State of Ohio
granted a non-profit charter. That same
year the organizers, decided to expand
the goals of the commission to include
the commercial and industrial history
of the “Canal Zone,” a 20-mile long
hydraulic stretch of the Miami and Erie
Canal which has never been abandoned,
never been drained.. This gave birth to
the Delphos Canal Commission museum
where exhibits have been organized with
plenty of room for the Marguerite so she
finally has the home she deserves. After
all, she started the whole thing.
Step back in time to the 1870s at
Providence Metropark in Grand Rapids,
Ohio. Board an authentic 1800s, muledrawn canal boat, for a trip along a
restored stretch of the original Miami
and Erie Canal. The boat passes through
lock #44, the only working lock in the
state of Ohio, located in front of the historic Isaac Ludwig Mill and Interpretive
Center, a restored and working canal-era
sawmill and grist mill.. Two mules pull
the canal boat “The Volunteer“, while
workers man the tiller and provide commentary to the passengers.
Providence Metropark is located on
US 24 at SR 578 across the Maumee
River from Grand Rapids. For details,
call 419-407-9700 or visit www.metroparks toledo.com.
Because Ohio is not entirely flat, a
system of locks was designed to act as
a staircase so boats could navigate the
difference in elevation. To supply water
for the canal, two lakes were developed along the route . One was Lake
St. Marys in Mercer County, adjoining
Celina.
The official geographic name of the
lake is Grand Lake. The United States
Geological Survey Board of Geographic
Names disapproved a proposal to change
the name Grand Lake to Grand LakeSaint Marys, which is the name given
on state maps and documents. The 1920
edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica
shows the name as Lake Mercer on
the map of Ohio in the article on Ohio.
“Lake St. Marys” was a name introduced
in the early 1900s and wasn’t popular
with Celina residents. This body of water
has also been referred to as “Grand
Reservoir” and “Lake Celina” as well.
In the 1890s oil was discovered in the
area, and oil derricks were set up in the
lake sometime around 1891 This made
Grand Lake the location for the first off
shore oil drilling to take place. The lake
became one of Ohio’s first state parks
in 1949. Grand Lake St. Marys State
Park is open for year-round recreation,
including boating, hunting, fishing,
swimming, camping and picnicking.

The Herald — 11

Opinion
The ‘dash’
There are just some weeks that are better than
others.
This past week — and maybe even a few days farther back — has been filled with challenges.
They say that trouble comes in threes. Well, I think
my husband and I had each had our threes at the same
time. This needed fixed, that needed replaced and on
and on. It seemed every time we picked up the phone
it was something we didn’t want to hear.
We also saw the passing of some good people, making us take stock in ourselves.
I read a poem not too long ago that I’m sure a lot of
you have read or heard about from someone else. It’s
called “The Dash” by Linda Ellis (copyright 1996).
The poem describes someone giving a eulogy for a
loved one. He notes the date of birth on her tombstone
and the date of her death. And in between those two
numbers is a “dash.”
That dash, according to the author, is the most
important marking on the tombstone for that dash represents all the things that person did between the time
they were born and when they died. It’s how they lived
their life when they were here on earth.
It stands for all the trials and happiness; all the
tribulations and joy; all the sorrow and smiles. The
whole deal.
The poem goes on to ask the reader if they are
happy with how their dash has turned out so far.
Are you proud of the things you have accomplished?
Are you happy with the life you have?
Are others happy to know you and count themselves lucky to have you in their lives?

Nancy Spencer

On the
Other Hand
Do you make life better or are you a “life-draining
succubus?” (One of my favorite sayings about people
and things that just take and take and don’t give anything back.)
Are you concentrating on what’s true and real?
Do you appreciate the feel of a gentle breeze on
you skin?
Does your heart sigh with pleasure at the sight of
your loved ones?
Never fear. If you are reading this, there is still time
to work on that dash.
There’s still time to find what’s important; what we
truly need to be doing.
It’s not the money, the cars, the house, etc.
Sometimes its not only what we bring to the table,
it’s what we leave behind, too.
Do you think how your actions will affect others?
Do you put others before yourself?
They say the measure of a person is not how much
they loved; but how much they were loved.
Since the passing of my father and other close family members, I make it a point to tell the people I love
that I love them. I just can’t stand the thought of that
not being said and then losing them. I know actions
speak louder than words but I never want it said they
didn’t know.
I also know that sometimes it’s not about me at all.
People move in and out of lives and sometimes we
wonder what was the point. That’s when I realized I’ve
been put in someone else’s path for them and I hope I
live up to the reason I am there.
Now, finish the newspaper and start working on
your dash. It’s a good day for it.

Transmission transition
Last week, we received a call that
Pamela was on her last legs.
Rather, she was on her last wheels.
Pamela is the car that took my mother from house to work and back and
then, for the past couple of years, my
child from school to job and back in
safety. A few days ago, Pamela began
to run hot, spew smoke and so was
parked and put up for sale to someone who is looking for parts.
My Steven presented a new car
option to our college student. “We’ll
pick you up on Saturday. You can
drive your mom’s car and mine and
whichever you prefer is the car you’ll
drive. They both get good gas mileage.”
And they are both stick. Pamela
was an automatic — no clutch; minimal shifting required.
Now, Steven and I are of a generation that watched one cartoon family and their purple dinosaur drive
a foot-propelled station wagon and
another family drive their space buggies to work while talking to each
other by video phone. Although we
were closer to the Jetsons than the
Flintstones, our child’s generation
has communicated digitally and cellularly for their entire lives. Even
though our purple dinosaur was light
years beyond Barney, a generation
who are on the cusp of purchasing cars that drive themselves must
consider a car whose gears must be
shifted by hand, with two pedals on
the floor, positively Stone Age.
It was scary decades ago when

Epic rendezvous with Pluto amazing
Why is it: my wall clock batteries constantly lose power, my TV
remote fades out and my Direct TV
signal blacks out when it rains or
snows, but the New Horizons spacecraft is able to travel 3 billion miles
through space in 9.5 years to flyby
dwarf planet Pluto and send back a
treasure trove of images and data?
New Horizons was launched in
January 2006. Engineers and scientists at Mission Operations Center
were thrilled on July 14 when it
flew within 7,800 miles of Pluto
which is in the Kuiper Belt in a very
icy part of the solar system. Pluto is
about two-thirds the size of Earth’s
moon.
The mission cost about $720
million. It is an epic achievement
of the Johns Hopkins University
Applied Physics Laboratory in
Laurel, Maryland. Pluto was discovered in 1930 by the late Kansas
astronomer Clyde Tombaugh. Some
of his ashes are on board the probe.
Engineers said the spacecraft
performed just as it should have.
During the flyby, it collected a hoard
of images and sensors collected bits
of dust from Pluto’s atmosphere.
The former planet is believed to be
4-billion years old.
Engineers say it takes about 5

hours for radio signals, traveling at
the speed of light (186,000 miles
per second), to go each way. Static
distorts transmissions. It will take
16 months to beam back to Earth
the cache of data.
The spacecraft uses a 2.1-meter
antenna (the size of a piano) to
receive and send signals. It is
powered by 8 Eveready Energizer
Bunny AA batteries. Just kidding.
Technology has improved dramatically since New Horizons was
launched 10 years ago. NASA’s
Deep Space Network (DSN) has
facilities in California, Spain and
Australia. DSN runs at about 7% the
rate of a 1990s dial-up computer,
and a fraction of today’s modern
modems.
*********
Being the victim of police-misconduct (whether guilty or not)—
including alleged beatings, shootings, wrongful imprisonment,
claims related to car collisions and
property damages—can result in
lottery-sized payouts.
The costliest claims being paid
by big cities are for civil-rights violations and other misconduct offences. Some major cities are self-insured, some cities have joined with
other cities to pool resources and

others have insurance that kicks in
at a certain payment level.
According to a July 16 frontpage article by The Wall Street
Journal, their reporters gathered
information through public-records
requests. The 10 cities with the
largest police departments paid out
$249 million in 2014, up 48% from
$168 million in 2010. The trend is
clear.
For the last five years, those
cities paid out a staggering $1.4
billion for all claims. That is money
that could have been used for lots of
other city services.
But that’s not the whole story.
New York City’s government-run
hospitals were for years the city’s
leading source of liability payouts,
primarily because of medical-malpractice settlements. But, beginning
in 2010, the police dept. surpassed
the city hospitals in total liability
payments, the WSJ said.
Bob Shannon, a former California
city lawyer, said in the 1970s, there
was a public presumption “that the
police officer was correct in what
he was doing…but now things have
changed substantially.” Current
scrutiny of law enforcement is negatively affecting the resolution of
lawsuits.

Anne Coburn-Griffis
Putnam County Sentinel
my parents found my first car at
Jack Howell’s. It was a used Datsun
210 with manual transmission. After
an afternoon of stalling out in the
Grace Mennonite Church parking
lot, I drove the car to my Toledo
apartment. My boyfriend followed
closely in his car, ready to push my
car up any exit inclines. On Sunday,
our child chose to take over my car
because it will hold a dog kennel.
And she made it back to school
through multiple downpours with no
calls to AAA, with no one riding
shotgun.
Knowing how to drive manual
transmission makes one feel kind of
tough. “Yeah, I drive a stick [shrug,
break board with forehead/pick teeth
with steak knife]. No big deal.”
I now have a new used car of my
own. Ironically, it’s an automatic.

People Make
the Difference

After recent events, we need to
change the way we think about
domestic policing and our response
to attacks on our citizens, military
and personal safety protectors.
The only way to preserve the
personal freedoms that we cherish
is to aggressively defend them even
if we must waive some privacy
issues and resist the temptation to
become too politically correct. In
many respects, we’re at war.
Criminals are getting the upper
hand against law enforcers. Some
are using the Internet to unleash
cyber attacks. We can’t let these
threats to our way of life go unchallenged for fear of hurting someone’s
feelings.
Last year, in Philadelphia, the
city settled 10 shooting cases for an
average of $536,500 each. In 2010,
by comparison, it settled eight cases
for an average of $156,937. A city
lawyer said the increase was due to
a few large settlements.
Just recently, on July 13, NYC
agreed to a $5.9 million settlement
with the estate of Eric Garner, whose
death after being put in a police
choke-hold last summer sparked
widespread protests. Garner supplemented his income by selling single
cigarettes on the street to avoid pay-

ing city taxes.
Cities are agreeing to these huge
settlements for misconduct to avoid
costly, protracted court cases. Civilrights violations draw lots of unfavorable attention. Playing a key role
in these cases is the use of video.
Highly-charged incidents are
being caught on dashboard cameras,
bystander cellphones, building and
street security cameras and from
video shot by news helicopters hovering overhead. Many departments
have stopped high-speed car chases because of the number of fatal
crashes into innocent bystanders.
Police agencies and government-run hospitals are easy targets
for misconduct, civil-rights violations and malpractice claims. It’s
the deep-pocket theory. While it is
a small percentage of situations,
law enforcement officers are guilty
of using excessive and lethal force
too often.
It’s a shame when cities have
to create risk-management bureaus
and litigation units to represent their
police and hospital entities. For
their employees, every day, every
shift puts them in life-and-death
decision situations.

Ed Gebert

Didn’t see that coming
After going through the weather we
have had to endure for the past monthplus, I recognize that back when June
began, nobody gave us any warning about
the deluge of moisture we’d put up with
this year. At least I don’t remember any
TV or radio guys warning us that 2015
would turn out to be the summer that
would turn fingers pruny. But I don’t
fault them. After all, predicting something
as common as the weather is difficult
business. And if the weather is tough to
predict, think about the hard predictions.
In 1964, a science fiction writer named
Isaac Asimov decided to write about the
changes that would be common to humans
50 years later. In honor of the Big Apple
hosting the World’s Fair of 1964, the article was entitled, “A Visit to the World’s
Fair of 2014.”
That should have been a clue about
the accuracy of the article — who cared
about the 2014 World’s Fair? As far as I
can tell, no one cared, since I can’t find
a record of one taking place. Supposedly

a 2015 World’s Fair is slated for Italy,
but I’m not reserving a room just yet.
So the premise of a World’s Fair is a bit
faulty, but let’s just continue. Asimov got
some things very right. And a few things
were, not-so-right, also. For instance he
predicted that appliances in 2014 would
have no electrical cords since they would
be powered by long-life batteries running
on radioisotopes. Well, not so much. Even
the electric cars run on batteries which
aren’t that efficient. Charging those batteries by plugging into our typical power
source isn’t the easy, done-like-magic
process Asimov imagined. He figured
that half the electricity would come from
these radioisotope batteries. He didn’t
guess that electricity would still be mostly
from coal in addition to nuclear and even
solar and wind. Wind would have been far
too backward-thinking for a futurist like
Asimov, anyway. As for solar, he figured
that all the stuff taking up space on the
earth surface, there wouldn’t be enough
room to capture much sunlight.

For food, he predicted processed yeast,
algae, and even micro-organisms would
be the staples of our diets. He dwelled on
the kitchens where food would be made at
the press of a button, and the comparisons
to microwave ovens immediately pop to
mind.
However, Asimov also was apparently intrigued with the idea of telephone
calls with video signal to go with it. Dick
Tracy has his “two-way wrist TV,” so why
wouldn’t we all want the same luxury? As
close as we seem to get these days is a
conversation via Skype on the computer.
It seems most people don’t care to be seen
while talking on the phone. That would
have been a hard thing to predict. After
all, I can see folks in various states of
dress and hairstyle just by making a trip to
a big box store late in the evening.
Asimov also predicted that we would
frequent underwater hotels and even
underwater cities. That seems to have
tanked (if you will pardon the expression.)
But he did predict refrigeration for food

My two
cents
and heat for the house supplied by the
same machine. That seems a little more
realistic, although I don’t think Asimov
even thought we’d get ourselves so dependent on air-conditioning inside buildings.
Oh, and the flying cars that everyone
knew we’d be driving? Asimov scaled
back and talked about hovercars instead.
He called them “flying-carpet cars”
Maybe he foresaw the mess of having all
those bad drivers up in the sky, dropping
to earth after each fender-bender? He did
predict education that looked a lot like
online classes. But for Asimov, students
were learning computer programming languages instead of simply using programs
or “apps” that have converted “computerese” into everyday-speak.
That brings us back to realizing how
hard predictions are to get right. You’ll
never get everything in a prediction 100
percent correct. So stop whining that your
weatherman missed the forecast. It’s not
that easy. And when they get them wrong,
you really do notice.

PRAYER TO THE
BLESSED VIRGIN
Oh, most beautiful flower
of Mt. Carmel, fruitful
vine, splendor in heaven.
Blessed Mother of the
Son of God. Immaculate
Virgin assist me in my
necessity. O Star of the
Sea help me and show
me herein you are my
mother. Oh Holy Mary,
Mother of God Queen of
Heaven and Earth! I
Humbly beseech you
from the bottom of my
heart to succor me in
this necessity. There are
none that can withstand
your power. Oh, show
me herein you are my
mother. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray
for us who have recourse to thee (three
times.) Holy Spirit you
who solve all problems,
light of all roads so that I
can attain my goal.You
who gave me the divine
gift to forgive and forget
all evil against me and
that in all instances in
my life you are with me. I
want in this short prayer
to thank you for all things
as you confirm once
again that I never want
to be separated from you
in eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy towards me and mine.
(The person must say
this prayer three consecutive days. After three
days, the request will be
granted. This prayer
must be published after

Levy

(Continued

Sh e
fu rt h e r
explained that the
Allen County Auditor
estimates that, for
every $100,000 in
valuation, property owners would
be assessed $35 per
year.
After
meeting
with the principals
of all four agencies
over the past three
weeks, the commissioners unanimously
approved a resolution permitting the
placement of the proposed levy on the November ballot.
Alice Curth, director of the Delphos Senior Center, remarked that
any new funds would help her organization bring on additional help.
Chore workers, transporters and office help are all on the agency’s
wish list. She was equally hopeful that, should the levy gain approval
in the fall, the Senior Center could regain some lost ground.
“We operate very lean,” Curth said. “At one time, we offered a
caregiver support group. We only ended up having that for a year
or two and then we lost the funding and haven’t been able to get it
back.”
She added that, while Delphos is centrally located and almost
evenly split between Allen and Van Wert counties both geographically and in population density, roughly 76 percent of the agency’s
transportation resources are used in Allen County.

Children enjoy a ride on the Miami-Erie Canal on the
General Harrison in Piqua. (Submitted photo)
(Continued from page 10)
The other lake was Lake Loramie in Shelby County. The
407-acre Lake Loramie State Park offers visitors a quiet retreat
in rural Ohio. Swim from the sandy beach, hike along the old
canal towpath, stay a night in a shaded campsite or boat the
lazy waters of 843-acre Lake Loramie.
It soon became apparent that Grand Lake and Lake Loramie
did not provide sufficient water. Another source had to be
developed. So 50 miles east of the canal, the Miami River was
dammed near its source to form another body of water, known
in canal days as the Lewistown Reservoir. It was this reservoir
that later became known as Indian Lake.
Within a few years after its construction, the canal system
became an obsolete form of transportation compared to the
new and growing railways. However, Indian Lake remained,
found itself well serviced by the railways, and ever since has
been enjoyed by many for rest and relaxation, fishing and
boating . The Lake is stocked with fish including Saugeye, for
which it has been nationally recognized. Several major fishing
tournaments are held each year, with local bass clubs holding
weekly contests. Generally these follow “catch and return”
rules. Ice fishing and snowmobiling have grown in popularity.
In 1958 “The Old Fashioned Bargain Days” began in
Delphos, in 1968 it morphed into a yearly festival geared
around the Miami Erie Canal known as the “Old Fashioned
Canal Days.” This end-of-the summer celebration offers a
variety of activities, attractions and entertainment for all ages
- kiddie tractor pulls, children’s crafts, petting zoo, putter golf,
amusement rides, queen’s pageant, cheer leading competition
and music from some of the hottest local bands. This years
Annual Canal Days run from September 18-20 with the grand
parade taking place Sunday afternoon.
Another parade can be seen in Delphos, sometimes daily!
The “Canal” duck parade brings a smile to my face every time
I encounter it.
This is a short list of some of the Miami Erie Canal historical sites and events. I hope it’s piqued your interest and you’ll
visit some of them. A good reason to is because, to a very great
extent, the history of the canal is the history of Delphos.

(Continued from page 1)
“More students will go there and they will
build on my project,” Edelbrock said. “The
McMasters program always goes back and
checks on their projects to make sure they are
still working and relevant.”
While visiting Peru and the little town on the
eastern coast of Africa, Edlebrock’s eyes were
opened to true poverty and destitution.
“We have everything we need in America,”
he said. “In Katunguru and Peru, if you don’t
have food, you will starve and there are not
food banks or thrift shops; if you want water,
you walk miles to get some; if you want to
bathe, you walk to the lake, which is 10 miles,
and you share the water with crocodiles. There
were seven people who had been killed by crocodiles in Katunguru.”
While he was in Peru helping build mud
stoves, he also brought along footwear from
TOMS Shoes for the children.
“The first little guy I gave a pair to cried and
just hugged them,” Edelbrock said. “He was so
happy to get a pair of shoes.”
His travels changed his perspective on help-

“I’m speaking on behalf of them,” he said
by way of explanation. “I think, out of respect
to parents and their right to continue to parent,
that’s something this policy needs.
While recognizing that such a controversial
issue would polarize people, Verhoff expressed
the belief that the majority of parents agreed
with the board’s action.
“The greatest number of people who spoke to
me were for it, versus against it,” he said.
Grove is now one of only two Putnam
County school districts drug testing its students;
the Leipsic Local School District implemented a similar policy over five years ago. The
Ottawa-Glandorf Local School District briefly
adopted a drug testing policy, but abandoned
it shortly after its implementation. Great Lakes
Biomedical will conduct all drug testing in the
Columbus Grove school district at a cost of $15
per test administered.
An impromptu survey of local superintendents found that no other area districts are presently considering a similar policy.
“We collected information on it a couple
of years ago just to be educated on it, but
we haven’t seen the need for it,” said Scott
Mangas, superintendent of the Ottoville Local
School District. As with Verhoff, Mangas also
expressed the personal belief that drugs don’t
play an influential role in Ottoville, adding that
the cost of testing was a factor in the board’s
decision when they reviewed the possibility of
testing students.

“I was always of the belief that we should
help people right here in America before we
help some other country, but their living conditions are terrible and they have nothing,” the
22-year-old said. “You wouldn’t believe how
grateful the kids are to get a pair of shoes. The
simplest things are out of their reach.”
His mission work also spurred the 2011 St.
John’s High School grad to decide on his next
step in education.
“I am going to start med school in the fall
and I want to work with Doctors Without
Borders,” he said. “There is so much to do.”
Edelbrock will attend Cleveland State, NEO
Medical University, majoring in psych/trauma.
“I want to go into psychology and trauma. I
want to help people who are in difficult situations,” he said “I’d also like to work in a maximum security prison or in the underprivileged
areas in Georgia and the Carolinas — someplace warm. Later on, I’d like to move back
here and maybe work at St. Rita’s.”
Edelbrock is the son of Mike and Karen
Edelbrock.
