City gets SAFER Grant; will we take it?


BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS Delphos has been named as one of


the recent recipients of a U.S. Department of Homeland
Security for the Staffing and Adequate Fire and Emergency
Response (SAFER) Grant totaling $336,840. The SAFER
Grant funds 100 percent of the cost for three full-time
firefighters, including all wages and benefits for two years;
and money to fully train six part-paid firefighters to a
Level 1 Firefighter.
Now the only question is: will they accept?
Council approved seeking the grant by a narrow margin

in February with Council President Dan Hirn breaking the


tie. Several councilman had expressed concern of what
happens after the two-year period: if the newly-acquired
firefighters have to be laid off, the city will incur the cost
of unemployment benefits.
Firefighter Local 686 Representative Brandon Webb
said the union gives its full support to accepting the
SAFER Grant, noting decreased response time and more
training are both positive outcomes for everyone.
Before we started using the intermittent employees,
our average response time was 13 minutes. We were running two full-time firefighter/EMTs on 12-hour shifts,
Webb began. Now, we are down to four minutes. That
is literally the difference between life and death for some

patients.
Resident Joe Painter spoke on his recent health scare.
My wife found me unconscious in the bedroom and
the paramedics got there in under five minutes, Painter
said. If I had had to wait 10 or even 13 minutes I would
not be here. Their quick response time and knowledge are
why I am standing here today.
Council went into executive session to consider the
employment and compensation of public employees in
conjunction with the SAFER grant and returned to regular
session with no action taken. A special meeting has been
called for 7 p.m. Monday to further discuss the grant.

Potential sale of
WBGU draws 200

Participating owners of broadcast spectrum


will first sell their airspace to the FCC in a
reverse auction. The FCC will then sell the
available spectrum to the highest bidder.
That BGSU was considering taking part in
the auction was made public earlier this year in a
barrage of media reports from virtually all local
media outlets. At that time, David Kielmeyer,
BGSUs interim chief communications officer,
reported that the FCCs valuation of the WBGU
spectrum is roughly $40 million.
Under the terms of the auction, BGSUs
trustees have four options, as outlined by
Kielmeyer at Mondays forum:
Decline participation.
Sell the spectrum, but then partner with
an agreeable broadcaster and channel share.
Sell the spectrum and then move the
WBGU signal from the UHF to the VHF spectrum at a cost of anywhere between 33 and 80
percent of the proceeds from the sale.
Sell the spectrum and go black; cease
broadcasting
and abandon WBGU in its entirety.

new member Saturday. The late William

The Legion also dedicated the World


War II 1943 Stewart M5-A1 tank.

Bill Rekart will join Jim Wilcox being


named Outstanding Veteran of the Year
for 2015.
Rekart was a radio operator/gunner
during World War II and reached the rank
of technical sergeant. He was attached to
the Eighth Air Force stationed in England.
Fifteen days after D-Day, there were 46
bombers, 17 fighters and 477 Americans
went down. It was his 16th mission in his
B-24 dubbed The Happy Hangover.
Rekarts plane was shot down and he
spent nearly 11 months as a German prisoner of war. On Feb. 2, 1945, Russian troops
were closing in on Luftstalag Four, forcing
Germans to move the prisoners. This led to
what is known as the Black March which
consisted of 86 days of about 500-600
miles. The Americans surrounded them so
they started marching them back.
There were approximately 10,000 prisoners on the march and only 7,000 survived. They had to deal with disease as well
as lack of food and water. The march also
went through the coldest part of the country
and the prisoners were forced to walk to
stay alive.

Anti-monopoly amendment could trump potential pot initiative


BY STEVEN COBURNGRIFFIS
DHI Media Staff Writer
sgriffis@delphosherald.com
COLUMBUS Boards of
election in the State of Ohio are
reviewing the newest submission
of signatures in ResponsibleOhios
bid to get a marijuana legalization initiative on the November
ballot. While having submitted
nearly three-quarters of a million signatures in early July, the
organization still fell short of a
required 306,000 legitimate signatures by roughly 10 percent.
ResponsibleOhio agents scrambled and resubmitted additional
signatures on July 31 in an effort
to make up the shortfall and those
submissions are currently under

review. But even if the new signatures push the effort over the top
and even if the proposed initiative
makes it to the ballot and receives
a majority vote to enact, it could
still fail.
At the heart of the issue lies
the Ohio Constitution, a successful bid that brought casino
gambling to the state and certain
provisions within the marijuana
initiative that have some politicians and entrepreneurs shouting
monopoly.
On November 3, 2009, Ohio
voters approved Issue 3, supporting a change to the states
constitution that permitted casino gambling in the state. At the
same time, however, Issue 3
also specifically dictated where
casinos could operate, creating

what many consider a lucrative


monopoly for those directly backing the issue. ResponsibleOhios
marijuana effort contains similar
opportunities for its backers, designating 10 specific sites within
the state as the only areas where
farmers may legally grow the
cash crop on a wholesale basis.
To offset that concern, Ohios
legislators have approved Issue
2, an anti-monopoly amendment
to Ohios Constitution that could
scuttle all of ResponsibleOhios
best efforts.
The initiative to amend the
Constitution or to create a law
by the public was part of the
Progressive Era reforms in 1912,
remarked State Representative
Bob Cupp. I cant imagine any
of those promoters imagined

that somebody would use this


to enrich themselves like they
have. So this really is in keeping
with the spirit of the progressive
reforms to not allow these kinds
of things.
Should ResponsibleOhios bid
prove successful and an initiative
legalizing marijuana appears on
Novembers ballot, then it will
share space with the anti-monopoly effort, Issue 2. Then, it comes
down to a slug-fest, a winnertakes-all competition with the
issue receiving the most votes
on top.
If youve got conflicting
amendments on at the same time,
in the same election, the one that
gets the most votes is the one that
controls, Cupp explained. If the
anti-monopoly amendment gets

more votes, it will control. If the


marijuana amendment gets more
votes, it will control. Thats how
it works.
Secretary of State Jon Husted
commented that no matter how
the vote settled out, the anti-monopoly bill would take precedence.
Should both measures be
approved, the anti-monopoly amendment put forth by the
legislature would go into effect
first and its provision banning
a monopoly from inclusion in
the constitution would serve
as an effective roadblock to
ResponsibleOhios amendment
taking effect, Husted said in a
statement.

Local/State
Vancrest of Delphos
participates in
innovative music program
INFORMATION SUBMITTED

DELPHOS Residents at Vancrest of


Delphos are participating in an innovative
Music & Memory program designed to
train caregivers how to create and provide
personalized playlists on digital music players. The program enables those struggling
with dementia to reconnect to the world
through memories triggered by the music
they love.
The Ohio Health Care Association (OHCA)
through its Educational Foundation and in
partnership with the Ohio Department of
Aging (ODA) has provided scholarships to
100 facilities statewide
including Vancrest
of Delphos enabling
them to become certified Music & Memory
facilities and to purchase the supplies necessary to initiate the
program.
The
principles and practices
of Music & Memory
hold great potential
for care providers who
serve Ohioans with
Alzheimers disease and other dementias,
said Bonnie K. Burman, Sc.D, director of
ODA. We applaud the Ohio Health Care
Association and their participating members
because we believe this program focuses on
the quality of life of residents, builds lasting relationships between care recipients and
providers, improves the lives of residents and
leads to happier employees, better jobs and
better care.
The program was pioneered by Dan Cohen,
founding Executive Director of Music &
Memory, Inc. The approach is supported by
neuroscience research.
Through the program, playlists are developed for individuals based on input from

them and others. The personalized playlists,


scientists believe, can help trigger memories
in even advanced dementia and Alzheimers
patients.
We have seen firsthand how music can
enrich residents lives and improve their memories, said Mick Murphy, Administrator at
Vancrest of Delphos. This is another step in
our continuous quality improvement efforts.
Residents are happier and more social; the
relationships among staff, residents and family deepen; and staff regain valuable time previously lost to behavior management issues,
Murphy added. The program also provides
great benefits by involving the community and
the young in the facility, and this innovative
program provides one
more important tool in
an effort to reduce reliance on anti-psychotic
medications.
The
Music
&
Memory
process
was featured in Alive
Inside, winner of the
2014 Sundance Film
Festival
Audience
Award, an emotional
documentary that follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the
non-profit organization Music & Memory, as
he demonstrates musics incredible ability to
combat memory loss and restore a deep sense
of self to those suffering from it.
The Ohio Health Care Association is
a non-profit association of more than 850
skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities and providers serving people with
intellectual and developmental disabilities,
representing over 80,000 individuals. Many
OHCA members also provide a variety of
home and community-based services. OHCA
is the largest long-term care association in the
state, and the only chartered Ohio affiliate of
the American Health Care Association.

Cupp holds legislative update


BY STEVEN COBURN-GRIFFIS
DHI Media Staff Writer
sgriffis@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS State Representative Bob
Cupp was in Delphos early Tuesday afternoon, stopping in at the library and meeting
with residents for his monthly legislative
update.
At the forefront of his presentation were
Highlights of the budget passed by Ohios
legislators, a process that he acknowledged is
not without its shortfalls.
The budget is always a mixed bag of what
you like and what you dont like, Cupp said.
Even so, he pointed to areas of importance
to him, particularly those involving education. Overall, over the course of fiscal years
2015 through 2017, state aid to Ohios local
school districts will increase by over $850
million. Funding to Allen County schools
will increase from just under $206,000 to
nearly $3 million in fiscal year 2016 alone. In
Delphos, state support will rise 8.5 percent in
the 2016-17 school year and an additional 4.9
percent in the 2017-18 school year.
Commenting that families of students
stand to save, Cupp pointed out the states
first-ever tax-free weekend. Purchases of
clothing items, each worth less than $75, and
school supplies are tax-free beginning Friday
morning at 12 a.m. and concluding Monday
morning at 12 a.m.

Cupp also addressed the issue of the elimination of PARCC testing in the states public schools, announcing his support of their
removal, calling them overly cumbersome
and an undue waste of time.
There were 27 states involved in the
creation of the PARCC tests and Ohio didnt
get a say, he said. Now were creating them
in-state and teachers get final approval of the
questions.
In higher education, provisions in the
budget freeze in-state undergraduate tuition
at state institutions at 2015 levels for the next
two years fiscal years 2016 and 2017. It
further requires them to develop and implement a plan to provide Ohioans the opportunity to reduce the cost of earning a degree
by five percent. To that end, the budget adds
nearly $82 million in fiscal year 2016 and
$158 million in fiscal year 2017 in state funding support for higher education.
On the tax front, the new budget offers
incentives to Ohios job generators. Provisions
in the budget offer a 75-percent income tax
deduction on the first $250,000 of income
in fiscal year 2016 for small businesses and
a 100-percent tax deduction in fiscal year
2017, with a flat three-percent tax rate on
all additional income. For income earners,
the budget provides a 6.3-percent across-theboard income tax cut beginning in tax year
2015 and lowers the top rate to 4.997 percent,
the lowest top rate since 1982.

Barts Big Brain Turns Blue

A history of potential events as chronicled by Steven Coburn-Griffis


Chapter Three
Friday, March 16, 2018
Bart Butterman winked at
the camera and, through it, at
the kids in Ms. Raczkowskis
7th Grade Earth Sciences
class.
But you know me, he
said, leaning in close, I like
a good question. Even better,
I love getting honest answers.
So, to find out more about
fresh water, whats going
on with it and how to keep
it coming, were in Ohio.
Northwest Ohio, if you want
to be precise. Putting an even
finer point on it, were on the
campus of Bowling Green
State University.
The camera angle suddenly changed and the class
found themselves looking
down at Bart Butterman, who
had thrown his arms out wide
and was spinning in a circle
so quickly that his patented Bart Butterman Smartt tie
was flying nearly straight out
from his body. His spinning
gradually slowed down and
as it did, the camera settled
back to look square at him
once again.
Bart Butterman put his
hand to his head, straightened
his tie and then said, But
why Ohio? you ask? Well,
let me tell you. Ohio borders
one of the Great Lakes, Lake
Erie, and the Great Lakes
are important sources of fresh
water. Of all the fresh water
there is on the surface of the
planet, one-fifth of it is in
the Great Lakes. And Lake
Erie is important for another
reason.
While he was talking, Bart
Butterman sat down at the
edge of the fountain with his
back to the camera and dipped
his fingers in the water.
Ahhhh, he said. The
waters warm. And its warm
because its shallow, shallow
enough so that the sun can
warm it up and keep it warm
during the late spring, summer and early fall months.
The same is true for Lake
Erie. Now Im not saying
that the lake is like this little
fountain; at its deepest point,
Lake Erie boasts 210 feet of
water. But if you compare
210 feet to, say, 1,332 feet
thats the deepest point in the
biggest of the Great Lakes,
Lake Superior then you
can understand why scientists
say Lake Erie really isnt all
that deep and why so many
people come here for. ..
Bart Butterman suddenly
turned back around to face
the camera and in his hands
something silvery shook and
jittered. He stopped shaking
his hands and held up a fake
rubber fish.
The fish! he shouted.
Because it is so shallow and
warm, there are loads offish
in Lake Erie. In fact, Lake
Erie is one of the worlds
largest commercial freshwater fisheries. So Lake Erie
is important for the fish and
because it provides drinking
water for quite a few cities
along its shores.
Bart Butterman stood up
and brushed off his hands.
But there have been
problems, in Lake Erie and
in other freshwater lakes in
Ohio. Big problems with a
little something called cyanobacteria, what we used to call
blue-green algae.
Bart Butterman waved
everybody closer and held up
his Smartt tie.

Come on, he said. Have


a look.
Chapter Three questions
1. About one-third of the
rivers and streams in Ohio are
in the Lake Erie watershed,
which means the water flowing in them flows toward and
eventually empties into Lake
Erie. The lower two-thirds of
the states waterways flow
south toward the Ohio River.
Look at the Internet map at
http://soilandwater.ohiodnr.
gov/maps/watershed-drainage-basin-maps. Find your
town on the map. Which of
Ohio two major watersheds
do you live in?
2. Bart Butterman listed
several reasons why Lake
Erie is so important to people. About 12 million people
live in the Lake Erie watershed, which includes parts of
Ohio, Michigan, New York,
Pennsylvania and Canada.

The lake provides drinking


water for about II million of
these people. Bart also talked
about fish. Bart also talked
about Lake Eries fish. How
many different reasons are
there for fish being important
to all of us?
3. Lake Erie, the shallowest Great Lake, is 2IO feet
deep at its deepest point. The
deepest Great Lake, Lake
Superior, is 1,332 feet deep at
its deepest point. What is the
difference in depth between
the two lakes? If it were possible, how many Lake Eries
could you stack on top of
each other to reach the depth
of Lake Superior?

Chapter Four
Friday, March 16, 2018
The camera closed in on
Bart Buttermans patented
Smartt tie until that was all
anybody in Ms. Raczkowskis
7th Grade Earth Sciences
class could see on the big
Smartt screen. A bright point
of light appeared on the tie.
The point of light zipped up
and over and down, zigging
and zagging this way and
that until there was an outline
of the State of Ohio. Within
the outline, three dark blue
stars appeared: a big star up
at the top of the state and two
smaller stars; one a little less
than halfway down and on
the left side of the outline,
and the other almost smack
dab in the center.
Suddenly, the big star at
the top of the state swung
open and a cartoon Bart
Butterman pushed his head
through the opening.
This big star right here
is Lake Erie, the cartoon
host said, smacking at the
swinging star with his cartoon hand, then pointed to the
smaller star closest to him.
That smaller star right there
is Grand Lake St. Marys and
over there, he continued,
pointing to the star nearly
in the center of the state,
is Buckeye Lake. All three
have been affected by cyanobacteria. And there are other
places, too.
As the cartoon Bart
Butterman talked, little blue
dots began to speckle the
inside of the outline. Most of
the dots appeared on the left
side of the outline and from
the center on up to the top.
But what is cyanobacteria? cartoon Bart Butterman
asked. Well, its a big word
for a little organism thats
creating massive problems
for a whole lot of people.
As cartoon Bart Butterman
spoke, the outline of the state
collapsed until it was a simple
circle. The stars disappeared
and the blue dots formed into
long chains until it looked
like someone had dropped

Spend more time


in the air.
Russ Borstelman; Napoleon, Ohio Customer

Butterman said And where


theres a bloom, youve got
trouble.
Chapter Four questions
1. During the 1960s, water
quality issues in the Great
Lakes became a concern and
Lake Erie was perceived to
be dying. By the late 1960s,
Canadian and American
regulatory agencies were in
agreement that limiting phosphorus loads was the key to
keeping algal growth under
control. Yet in 2014, the City
of Toledo, one of the biggest
ports in the Great Lakes, was
without safe drinking water
because of harmful algal
bloom. Why do you think
that we are still having problems taking care of Lake Erie
nearly 50 years later?
2. Bart talked about bluegreen algae in lakes, a fountain and in his water glass,
but not in a river or stream.
What are the differences in
the water in a lake compared
to a river? How might these
differences cause blue-green
algae to be in one but not the
other? How do the different
types of water bodies effect
each other?
3. Bart put on rubber
gloves to fill his water glass
from the fountain? Why?
What kinds of things do you
do every day to protect your
health as well as the health
of others?
Chapter Four vocabulary
Grand Lake St. Marys
Buckeye Lake
organism
massive

pieces of stiff, pebbly string


onto a plate.
Cyano means, related to
the color blue and bacteria well, that gets a little
more complicated, cartoon
Bart Butterman continued.
Bacteria arent plants and
they arent animals, they
belong in a class all by themselves. And theyre small.
Almost all are microscopic,
too small for the human eye
to see without help. Anyway,
when you put the two parts
of the word together, you get
blue bacteria. And theyre
called cyanobacteria because,
when there are enough of
them together so that theyre
visible, they have a kind of
blue-green color.
Bart Buttermans Smartt
tie suddenly went blank. On
the big Smartt screen in Ms.
Raczkowskis class, Bart
Butterman stood once again
beside the fountain. Except,
where before the water was
clean and clear, now it was
almost entirely covered with
what looked like a mat of
blue-green scum.
Bart Butterman pulled on
a pair of long rubber gloves.
He picked up the glass he had
drunk from earlier and dipped
it into the fountain. He held
up the glass of blue-green
goo and swirled it around a
bit.
And when there are so
many cyanobacteria together
that that they cover the surface of the water and reach
down below the surface, they
call that a bloom, Bart

INFORMATION
SUBMITTED

Things can now get back to normal.


What am I referring to, my ever-growing by leaps and
bounds (or at least baby steps!) legion of Metcalfe-Maniacs?
Hey, everything else has Mania behind it, so why cant I?
Ahem.
Back to the article.
Of course, I am referring to the beginning of the fall sports
season in our fair city and environs and the opening of National
Football League training camps.
Every team has
hopes of a berth in
Super Bowl L and
Jim Metcalfe
visions of carrying
the Vince Lombardi
Trophy home and
us fantasy football
players of not tearing
whats left of our hair
out in trying to build
the perfect roster!
My colleague tells
me her husband is on trillions of leagues at least a couple
and that boggles my mind: I go berserk being in four!
Of course, one could argue that the NFL season (and fantasy
football!) never really ends in that it has become an all-yearround extravaganza: trades, free agency, OTAs and the like.
In a sense, the same holds true for high school sports,
whether it be football, soccer, volleyball, cross country girls
tennis in this area or some other sports we dont see around
here: field hockey and lacrosse, to name two.
Whether it be off-season workouts in the weight room, on
the track or in agility drills; open gyms and club teams; and
just putting in the miles on the road; there is a lot more time
involved than in days of yore.
Fortunately so far, the normal steamy, humid, hot and miserable weather that usually hits this time of year hasnt, though
I am sure the players sweating through 2-a-days and conditioning might disagree with me just a tad.
I just think how blessed we are to have the sports we do,
the coaches that are willing to sacrifice their time and talent
believe me, I have been at this job for over a quarter of a
century and the time that needs to be invested to build a quality
program in ANY sport has grown incredibly and the players
(ditto) willing to pay the price to be as good as they can be.
We generally have a good fan base that comes out to watch
and really root their teams and players on and that is to be
commended.
I also generally think we have fans that realize that these are
games and these are sports to be enjoyed for a brief moment in
our childrens lives and then its gone like the wind.
How many players in a given sport will continue their athletic career at a Division III level, let alone Division II or I,
especially in a small-town region like ours?
That being written, sports can be so much more if we allow
it.
You can learn the value of hard work for yourself you
can develop good and healthy habits like weight-lifting and
running that last a lifetime and will pay off in the long run long
after your athletic career is done.
You can learn the value of teamwork you know the old
Three Musketeers motto, all for one and one for all! not
only in success but in failure.
Were not in this alone and when we think we are, thats
when we really do fail.
When it becomes only about me, that isnt good.

COLUMBUS The high


school football state championships will remain in
Ohio Stadium in Columbus
for an additional year,
through 2016, the Ohio High
School Athletic Association
announced Tuesday jointly
with the Greater Columbus
Sports Commission.
The announcement comes
as details are being finalized
for the 2015 state championships, which include a public
all-session ticket sale date of
Aug. 17 for the seven state
championship games (see
details below).
The Sports Commission
and the Ohio State Athletics
Department were awarded
a contract to host the football championships in 2014
and 2015, with the OHSAA
intending to move the finals
in 2016 back to Stark County,
which hosted the championships for 24 years (19902013).
However, the massive renovations underway in Canton
at Tom Benson Hall of Fame
Stadium, formerly Fawcett
Stadium, are not expected to
be completed until 2017.
We are very grateful
for the cooperation of the
Greater Columbus Sports
Commission and Ohio State
for working with us on this
extension, Dr. Dan Ross,
OHSAA Commissioner, said.
We have been in conversation with the folks in Stark
County about the timeline for
the renovations in Canton. As
we have said all along, we are
very blessed in Ohio to have
some of the best football stadiums in the country and student-athletes will be so proud
to say they played for a state
title in Ohio Stadium or in
Stark County.
Beyond 2016, details are
being discussed as to which
venues will host the football
state championship games
and in which years.
We are excited to add
another year of Ohios
best high school football
teams competing for state
titles in Columbus, said
Greater Columbus Sports
Commission
Executive
Director Linda Shetina
Logan. The State Football
Finals in 2014 were incredible from an attendance standpoint and the student-athlete
and fan experience. We look

forward to creating new


memories in the Horseshoe
in 2015 and 2016.

The 2015 state football championships in Ohio


Stadium will be played

December 3, 4 and 5.

You can also learn perseverence: not everything will go
your way and not everyone will think you are the best thing
since sliced bread.
You have to somehow be able to deal with the bad as well
as the good!
I will be brief with this one.
I was shocked that the Cincinnati Reds only traded starting
pitchers Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake before the deadline.
I really thought Aroldis Chapman and a couple others at
least would be wearing other uniforms by this time.
There could be waiver trades but those are more dicey and
they could still be traded after the season.
They definitely are rebuilding five rookie starting pitchers dont happen often. According to one web site I saw, it
hasnt happened in the Queen City since 1935.

GILBOA The Make-a-Kid Smile Run


is a fundraiser that is designed to do exactly
that: put an ear-to-ear grin on the faces of
children who are battling illness or a physical
or mental condition that they must surmount
every day.
The motorcycle run is in its second year,
with an Aug. 15 date set. Riders and anyone
who wishes to join in the benefit are invited
to gather at Gilboa Park on US 224, east
of Ottawa in Gilboa. Registration begins at
10:30 a.m. with the first bike out at noon. The
cost to participate in the run is $10 for an individual and $15 per couple, with a $5 charge
for those who are not riding. Children 16 and
under may participate at no charge, although
those under 18 must be accompanied by an
adult, with no one under 18 to be present after
8 p.m. Those present must be 21 to drink alcohol identification will be checked.
The run route itself will include designated
stops, including some at local businesses in
McComb, Deshler and Ottawa. The last bike
will return to Gilboa by 4:30 p.m.
Proceeds from the day will benefit the
Center for Autism & Dyslexia in Findlay. The
only stipulation for the recipient each year is
that the money be used to put a smile on a
childs face. Following this years run, there
will be a lot of smiles.

Were not buying chairs for the classroom, said organizer Brien Bowers. We
want them to do something fun.
Last years event in Pandora Park raised
$1,364 for Brianna Root, a Pandora-Gilboa
elementary student who was battling leukemia. The Root family went to Cedar Point.
This year, Bowers and other organizers decided to target a group rather than an individual.
Jim Eagleson, a biker who organized the
Eagleson Wish Run for the Make-a-Wish
Foundation for 20 years, picked up one of the
Findlay centers business cards one day and
gave it to Bowers.
Bowers said that a motorcycle isnt required
to join in on Aug. 15. Food and drinks will be
available, including BBQ chicken dinners
catered by Teds Market of Pandora. Presale
tickets are available at Teds Market or by
calling Bowers at 419-890-5025.
There will also be door prizes, 50/50, a
small auction, music, primitive camping and
bike games. Trophies will be awarded for the
best hand driver and passenger.
Teds Market is donating the food for the
day, as well as providing much of the cooking
equipment. Ben Breece Harley Davidson,
Ottawa, is providing auction items.
Theyve also sold us other things at cost,
said Bowers.
He added that the run is also supported
substantially out-of-pocket.
You have to, if you believe in what youre
doing, you have to, said Eagleson.

evil-enabling assistants, headline their own madcap spinoff
about their long, crazy quest to
find the most despicable master of all to serve.
And what a questit begins, we find out (as guided
by the narration of Geoffrey
Rush) in primordial ooze and
quickly bops through various
incidents across the centuries
as the minions seek out a succession of bad guys from
dinosaurs and Dracula to an
Egyptian pharaoh, Napoleon
and an abominable snowman.
But they always bungle things,
with comically disastrous consequences.
So they keep moving,
throughout the centuries and
around the globe, until a trio of
minion explorers (Kevin, Bob
and Stuart) lands in New York
City in 1968. Then things shift
into comedic high gear as directors Pierre Coffin and Kyle
Balda riff on the vibrant sights
and sounds of the era (the
movie has a killer soundtrack
of groovy late-60s tunes) and
serve up a buffet of pop-cultural cleverness for all ages.
When Kevin, Bob and Stuart see a late-night TV ad for
Villain-Con, an upcoming
Comic-Con-like convocation
of baddies, they know they
have to hook up with events

The minions have always
had an instant appeal to kids,
for obvious reasons: They
look like wobbly toddlers,
they speak gibberish (a googoo gush of Euro-babble, provided by director Coffin) and
theres an innate goodness and
innocence underneath whatever bad they might otherwise
be trying to do. Theyre guaranteed laughs from children by
just walking onto the screen.
But theres so much more to
the humor here; parents will be
greatly entertained by the vocal performances of Bullock as

Over 50? Supersize


your retirement savings
BY NATHANIEL
SILLIN

If youre over age 50 and


not sure whether youre going
to be able to retire, its time to
focus, get advice and build a
realistic plan.
Youre not alone. The U.S.
Government Accountability
Office recently reported that
most households approaching
retirement have low savings,
adding that nearly half of
households led by individuals
or couples aged 55 and older
having no retirement savings
accounts at all.
The first step is to define
where you really stand financially. Consider speaking with
a qualified financial and tax
advisor to define your present
financial circumstances. Such
a conversation should take
into account your household
income, tax situation, debt
and retirement assets in any
form. Reviewing these factors can help shape your decisions about supersizing your
retirement plan for maximum
safe returns. While a customized plan is generally the
best way to approach shortfalls, here are some general
approaches.
Take time to reevaluate
your budget. To accelerate
retirement saving and investing, you need to find the
money first. Non-mortgage
debt is a major retirement
savings obstacle. Better budgeting can help you find the

money to pay off debt quicker. Adjust your spending


across the board so you can
accomplish this while adding
more money to savings over
time.
Know that youre going
to need to accelerate your
savings. Estimates vary, but
generally, after age 50, its
best to direct at least 10 percent of your gross income in
savings and investments to
cover living expenses when
you stop working. If you are
employed, review your contribution and income limits
for the most popular self-directed and tax-advantaged
retirement savings vehicles.
Those include:
401(k), 403(b) and
most 457 plans, which will
have a maximum annual contribution limit of $18,000 in
2015
Individual Retirement
Accounts (IRAs) both
Traditional and Roth which
will have maximum catchup contribution limits of
$6,500 (the regular $5,500
limit plus $1,000 for taxpayers aged 50 or over by yearend 2015)
If after all this effort
youre still not able to find
enough money to put away,
consider making a greater
effort on the income side.
Many individuals boost their
savings through a second job
or freelancing from home.
Consult qualified financial
and tax professionals to make
sure youre handling this
extra income correctly from
a tax perspective and putting
it in investments that make
sense for you.

lower cost-of-living destination or deciding to move in
with friends or family at minimal costs may also provide
additional savings for retirement. But first, consider what
you might get for your home.
If you are able to sell a primary residence at a significant
profit over your purchase
price above $250,000 for
a single taxpayer and above
$500,000 for married taxpayers filing jointly speak to a
tax professional about ways
to avert a significant tax liability.
Finally, put proper financial safety nets in place. Make
sure you have an emergency
fund set up so you wont be
forced to dip into savings to
cover unexpected expenses.
And dont forget insurance
having the right amount of
property and casualty, health
and disability insurance can
protect your retirement nest
egg from significant risk.
Bottom line: Building a
retirement fund after age 50
is challenging, but not impossible. Get solid tax and financial advice, start downsizing
immediately and dont forget
critical financial safety nets.

Virgo, your coworkers will come


through in a big way this week. Make the
most of this opportunitity to work together as a team, and it will pay dividends going forward.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18


Aquarius, adhere to your original plan
this week, avoiding distraction until the
tasks at hand are a distant memory. Your
plan is reliable and sure to work.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21


You may get swept away in some lifelike dreams this week, Taurus. It may be
difficult to discern when youre awake or
asleep. Dont get carried away.

LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23


Libra, a little daydreaming can be
good for the soul. Give daydreams their
due time, but remember to refocus on real
life as well. Youre up to a challenge you
face this week.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20


Its nearly impossible to hide your
emotions right now, Pisces. So why not
share them and get some support from
friends and family?

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21


Gemini, a professional predicament
may have you feeling as if you have been
run ragged. Regroup, even if it means taking a few days off. This time away is just
the remedy you need.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22


Scorpio, your schedule is about to
clear up so now is a great time to take
some time off. You deserve a break after
buckling down for so long. Relax and enjoy yourself.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22


Its nearly impossible to stick to your
schedule this week, Cancer. Too many
things will pop up, and youll be spending
your time juggling multiple responsibilities.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21


You know what needs to be done, Sagittarius. You may not have enough manpower to get everything accomplished, so
put out a few feelers to see who is up to
helping.

LEO Jul 23/Aug 23


Leo, your imagination may push you
in the wrong direction this week. Daydreaming instead of getting things done is
risky. Focus on the tasks at hand.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20


Capricorn, continue with your consistent approach to handling your many responsibilities. Youre juggling a lot these
days, and youre benefitting from your
work ethic.

Delphos will see a new Trilogy


Health Services, LLC, healthcare facility near the U.S. 30 interchange at East
Fifth Street. Council passed on emergency measure an economic development
package for Trilogy, including locking
in water and sewer rates to the current
charge for three years; the expansion of
infrastructure; and waiving sewer and
water tap-in and building permit fees.
Thomas & Thorngren, Inc., Tax
Director Josh Hole gave a prestentation
on the expansion into Delphos, outlining the $11-13 million approximate
55,000-square-foot facility.
Trilogy is a Top 100 Employer in
Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana and this
will be a premium cadillac facility,
Hole said. More than 60 percent of
those staying will be recovering from
surgery, heart attack, stroke or something of that nature. It will also include
long-term care and assisted living.
The facility will bring about 100 jobs
to Delphos.
Council also heard on first reading
an ordinance establishing and describing the boundaries of a Community
Reinvestment Area, designating a housing officer to administer the program

www.delphosherald.com

and creating a Community Reinvestment


Housing Council and Tax Incentive
Review Council.
The Ohio Community Reinvestment
Area program is an economic development tool administered by municipal
and county governments that provides
real property tax exemptions for property owners who renovate existing or
construct new buildings. Community
Reinvestment Areas are areas of land in
which property owners can receive tax
incentives for investing in real property
improvements. This program permits
municipalities or counties to designate
areas where investment has been discouraged as a CRA to encourage revitalization of the existing housing stock and
the development of new structures.
Council will also hear the second
reading of this ordinance on Monday.
Jackson Street resident Barbara Foust
spoke to council about her street flooding and subsequently her basement taking on storm and sewer water.
I called the city at 9 a.m. on July 9
because I had 12 inches of water in my
basement and they told me they would
put me on the list, Foust said. I still
hadnt heard anything by 4:30 p.m. so I
called back and was told they were done
for the day. I asked if someone could

Rekart

please come down and at least look at


the street and see if anything could be
done.
Foust said two city workers did
respond and waded out into the water
in the street, did something to the drain
and in within a half hour, the water
had drained from her basement and the
street.
If that is all they had to do, why
couldnt someone do it? Foust asked.
Safety Service Director Shane
Coleman said he wasnt sure what the
workers had done and he would find
out. He asked Foust to call him later in
the week.
We are asking that grass and other
yard debris not be mowed into the street
as it does cause problems with the drainage system, Coleman said. Im not
sure if thats what happened but I will
find out.
In other business, council:
Heard the city received a $30,000
grant from the Mueller-Scherger
Foundation, including $18,000 for
improvements to the walkway around
the Delphos-Gillmor Reservoir and
$12,000 for a survey of the Miami-Erie
Canal in Delphos; and
Approved $3,534 in sewer and
water adjustments.

Rekart and his fellow captives were liberated on May 2, 1945,


just southeast of Hanover by the British Second Army Tank
Column.
Rekart was a 69-year member of the American Legion and
long-time member of St. Johns Church, the Delphos Eagles, the
Lima Elks and a lifemember of the VFW and St. Johns Athletic
Boosters. He was also instrumental in the inception of the Delphos
Country Club.
The Legion also dedicated the World War II 1943 Stewart
M5-A1 tank that stands guard on the east side of American Legion
Post 268. The tank was restored last fall.
The festival started with a Poker Run including 27 riders. The
hot dogs and brats and local favorite Deuces Wild provided the
entertainment.

Many of those who accepted the opportunity to speak


waxed nostalgic about their
or their childrens experiences
with PBS and WBGU. Others
expressed their concern that,
should WBGU cease broadcasting altogether, the educational and arts-based content
for which PBS is noted would
simply disappear from the area.

Columbus and for not one
of those stations does the Lima

contour. Its only WBGU.
Mondays was the second of
four such events; the first was
held in Findlay last week,
with two more scheduled, one
later this month and the second in early September, in
Bowling Green. According to
Mazey, the universitys board
of trustees must advise the
FCC of its intent by the middle of September.

75 Years Ago 1940
Construction of a new park, Cascade State Park in
Putnam County, will begin soon, Commission Don Waters
of the Conservation Division announced Friday. The park
will be located near Cloverdale at the intersection of State
Route 114 and the Auglaize River. The name of the park
possibly comes from an old dam and waterfall located just
above the bridge of which only the washed-out ends and
river rapids survive.
The members of the Morris Chapel Epworth League will
attend the annual Institute to be held at Lakeside this next
week. The following members are in the party: Rosalle,
Margaret and Mary Ditto, Alma Jean Heidelbaugh, Betty
Brenneman, Jane Baxter, Eloise Bel, Milton Stutzman,
Leo Enslen, Billy Baxter and Tommy Jones.
Those going on the annual Van Wert County 4-H general livestock judging tour will visit the A. B. Gerdemann
farm in Washington Township, west of Delphos, this year
for the judging of fat steers. Arrangements for the tour
to be held Aug. 8 are now being completed. L. K. Bear,
extension animal husbandman of Ohio State University,
will give final placings on the various rings of livestock.
Mrs. Glenn Ditto and Mrs. Ray Myers entertained the
members of the D.F.D.L. Club at the Ditto residence on
Scott Street Thursday evening. Mrs. Lloyd Foley proved
most successful in a contest and Mrs. Carl Imber was
low. Other awards went to Mrs. Ray Myers, Mrs. S. H.
Wahmhoff, Mrs. Joseph H. Beckman, Mrs. Paul Stallkamp
and Mrs. Frank Irick.

Responding in a statement of his own, Ian James,


ResponsibleOhios executive
director, said, We know politicians dont want Ohioans to
legalize marijuana and theyll
do whatever they can to try
to stand in the way of voters
decision in November. This
anti-voter amendment makes
clear that if lawmakers had

their way, they would trump


the will of the people. But
voters know the legislators
initiative would limit their
rights in our democracy.
A decision as to the validity of ResponsibleOhios
petition effort is expected within the week. Legal
action, should both initiatives
receive majority votes, is
widely considered inevitable.

Trivia

Answers to last Saturdays questions:


A group of bees is called a swarm; a group of rattlesnakes a rhumba; a group of cockroaches an intrusion; a
group of mosquitoes a scourge.
Texas-born pianist Van Cliburn, in 1958 during the
Cold War, was the first musician to be honored with a

medal at the first international Tchaikovsky Competition
in Moscow.
Todays questions:
What bestselling American author wrote a book about
her experiences as a nurse during the Civil War?
What was the name of the horse Paul Revere rode on
his famous Midnight Ride to alert colonists the British
were coming?
Answers in next Saturdays Herald.
A bent-over old lady hobbled into a doctors office.
Within minutes, she came out again but miraculously, she was standing up as straight as could be.
A man in the waiting room who had been watching
her said in amazement; My goodness, what did the
doctor do to you?
The old lady replied, He gave me a longer cane!
