Honorary Wildcat may no
longer be with the Jefferson
High School class of 2016,
but hell never be forgotten.
The newest group of alumni
added the late Ed Smith to
their class roster as they
walked across The Stage
at Jefferson Middle School
on last time Saturday morning.
Most who knew Smith
met him through the
Delphos Youth Hoops program.
I felt very strongly
about Mr. Smith being our
classs Honorary Wildcat,
Dalton Hicks said. He was
my coach since third grade
and he supported me and
others in all our sports, not
just basketball. He found
joy in our success. He was
always there for us.

After that, the youth are brought in for


orientation like a regular job orientation
where they fill out all of their paperwork and
turn in copies of various documents, such as
their drivers license.
We go through the expectations of
the program and then we give them a list
of employers and the contacts for those
employers so they can go through the list and
see what interests them, Andrea Morrow,
site manager for LACCA, said. Its their
responsibility to go to that person and introduce themselves and express interest in the
job.
The youth also fill out a career interest
survey so they can hopefully work in a
job that will enlighten them on their future
career path.

COLUMBUS The Ohio State Highway Patrol is reporting 11 deaths on Ohio roadways over the 2016 Memorial Day weekend. This is a decrease compared to recent years,
as 16 fatalities occurred in 2015 and 13 occurred in 2014. Four of this years fatalities
were motorcyclists, and two were pedestrians.
The Patrol made 36,941 enforcement contacts in total, including 734 OVI arrests and
7,142 citations for safety belt violations. The four-day reporting period began Friday and
ran through Monday.
Troopers were highly visible this weekend because of the heavy Memorial Day
traffic, and we take enforcing traffic laws seriously, said Colonel Paul A. Pride, Patrol
superintendent. We thank everyone who slowed down, buckled up and designated sober
drivers this weekend. We ask that you do the same every time you get behind the wheel.
In addition, the Patrol made 19,677 non-enforcement contacts, of which 4,625 were
to assist motorists.

Local/State
Pohlman retires from Crestview

Pohlman poses for a picture with Crestviews FFA Farm Business Management team. From left, Austin Habegger,
Tommi Andersen, Haley Michaud, Paul Pohlman and Joel Germann. (DHI Media/Daniel Joseph)
BY DANIEL JOSEPH
DHI Media Staff Writer
djoseph@timesbulletin.com
CONVOY All good things must
come to an end and Crestview High
School is experiencing that firsthand
as Paul Pohlman has retired after 32
years. Pohlman served as the agriculture education instructor as well as
the FFA advisor.
Pohlman is a graduate of Delphos
St. Johns High School and of The
Ohio State University. He returned to
school to receive his masters degree
in agriculture education from OSU in
1990.
When Pohlman began at Crestview,
his first and only teaching position, he
was coming in as Warren Reed was
retiring. After a short transition period with the FFA program, everything
went smoothly.
We had 24 kids my first year,
Pohlman said. The program had gone
through some changes as Warren Reed
was here for 31 years and there were
some rough roads with the change to
the new teacher. I was very fortunate
because by the time I got here the kids
were ready to pick something up and
go. Weve really built from there.
With Pohlman at the helm,
Crestviews FFA program has been
very successful and has brought
home many state banners, 87 to be
exact. The programs Farm Business
Management team has led the way
winning the event 15 times, including
each of the last five years. This past
year, Crestview placed eight students
in the top-10 of 593 participants at the
state level.
This event (Farm Business

Management) is very important


because youre preparing kids financially, Pohlman said. Whether they
grow up to have farms or not they will
have to work with money and thats
what that is about. We talk about
interest and investments so they are
taking things with them no matter
where they go in life.
Now that Pohlman is leaving
Crestview, the FFA program will
again go through a transition period,
but this time with Ericka Priest.
Weve worked with Miss Priest to
get started, Pohlman said. This year
we had 92 students and I think the
future is very bright. The kids have all
been awesome.
The
education
system
is
ever-changing and it is no different
with agriculture.
The state holds the money so they
get to tell you what to do a little bit.
Pohlman said. In the 32 years Ive
been here we have really transitioned
from production agriculture to agriculture information and technology.
We train kids to move on in an agriculture career thats more than just
farming.
In Pohlmans many years at
Crestview, he has the touched the
lives of many and has changed the
lives of those around him. The same
has happened to him in the past 32
years and he has made memories that
will last a lifetime.
Competing in the state development career events, Pohlman said.
Weve worked very hard for those in
the classroom. They reward banners
to those who finish in the top-five in
the state and since Ive been here we
have 87 of those. Most of that comes

from the ability to motivate the students to want to work hard.


The retired FFA advisor will miss
many things about Crestview, but will
miss the students the most.
The interaction with the kids
because a lot of them are just a lot
of fun, Pohlman said. This class
is an elective so by the time they are
juniors and seniors they know what
they want and its beautiful. This
years senior class is one of the best
Ive ever had. They are intelligent,
they work hard, but their best thing is
probably their personality.
After 32 years on the job, Pohlman
has advice to offer up to all teachers and instructors, not just those in
agriculture: If you care about the
kids, they return that back to you,
Pohlman said. Whether it be in effort
or how they treat you; if you treat
them well, they respond very well.
Pohlman has plans for the next
couple of years that involve keeping
his hands dirty. He is a man that loves
being in the garden and being outside.
Ive expanded my garden about
10-fold, Pohlman said. I want to
grow big pumpkins and I have a huge
potato patch. I still farm a little bit
so Ill enjoy my time farming a little
more and Ill spend a lot of time in
my garden.
Though Pohlman is leaving
Crestview, his legacy will live on and
his students will not soon forget him.
Im going to miss Mr. Pohlmans
life lessons that he teaches us during
class, sophomore Haley Michaud
said. Its not just a regular class
where we learn all the time, but he
tells how to work through things.

Winter professional
sports heating up?
Summer can now
Jim Metcalfe
begin.
It has my official
permission.
And you know,
we are beginning the
championship round
for our winter sports:
professional basketball and the National
Hockey League.
I know there have been many a pundit and article about our
professional seasons being way too long.
The major premise of these articles is that our superstars
are so worn down from all the travel with the airplane ride
a source of literally great pain for the tallest athletes sitting on
long hours in cramped seats with no real leg room and the
grind of the back-to-backs and such, we are either not getting
their best night after night or arent getting them at all.
I suppose there is something to some of this after all,
even someone with short legs like I have a hard time on airplanes these days because they are so tightly packed.
The bright lights are shining ever brighter on our superstars.
For example, LeBron James isnt just an American superstar he is a global superstar.
At the same time, these men and women (well see what the
move for more equal pay between our mens and womens U.S.
national soccer teams ends up) are very WELL-compensated
for their work and labors, plus throw in the enormous potential
for many (maybe not all but more than a few) for lucrative
endorsement deals and such.
Whoever heard of an athlete in the pages of yesteryear that
seriously approaches the kind of money that athletes like Tiger
Woods, Michael Jordan and Lebron can bring in and earn do
today?
Consider what potential a footballer like Lionel Messi can
make in the global game that international soccer has become?

Final pieces of State Track puzzle filled in


BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
DAYTON The goal for every
Ohio track and field athlete in the spring
outdoor season is one and the same: to
end up on the podium at Jesse Owens
Memorial Stadium on the campus of
The Ohio State University.
With the completion of the Division
II Regionals at Daytons Perc Welcome
Stadium on a warm and humid Saturday
morning and afternoon, local athletes in
five events lived on to try and fulfill that
dream next weekend in Columbus.
The afternoon even included a
1-hour, 20-minute delay due to threatening weather.
The top finisher was Elida senior Tori
Bowen, who took the title in the girls
pole vault with a vault of 11-6.
I really wanetd to win this event. I
hurt my ankle last year at Regionals and
moved on to State but I really wanted
to win here, she observed. I struggled
a little bit in the early going, especially
with my poles, and thought I might not
win it. This is my favorite place since I
qualified to State as a sophomore here.
I finished fourth at State last year
and I wanted to get back and see if I can
finish higher. I did keep track of other

meets and what everyone was doing but


I wasnt allowed to talk about it. Now
I can.
Van Wert senior Katie Trittschuh
made it 2-for-2 in the throwing events
to book passage to State as she tossed
the girls shot put 37-7 1/2 to earn third.
I missed doing to State last year in
this event in my first year throwing ever
by a half-inch. I was so close and wanted so much to have another chance,
Trittschuh noted. Im not a big person,
so I focus a lot on technique. I also focus
a lot on staying relaxed and calm so I
can throw better, like I do in practices.
Its exciting to qualify to State in
two events. I have been involved in all
kinds of sports at Van Wert: softball,
tennis, swimming, cheerleading. I just
decided as a junior that I wasnt meeting
what I felt was my potential, so I gave
track a try. I had never even been to a
meet before last year.
Her Cougar teammate, senior Keagan
Hardmon, ran a 49.01 in the boys 400meter dash to finish third behind a
record-setting performance by Stivers
Tyler Johnson (46.57) and Meadowdales
Wayne Lawrence, Jr., (47.03).
I tried to stay with Johnson early but
hes too good. I cant be disappointed to
finish third behind two guys beating the
old State record, Hardmon said. Last

year was my first year of running track


I was a football guy and I finished
fourth at State last year. Definitely, Im
glad to have another chance to get back
there and hopefully move up on the
podium.
As well, Ottawa-Glandorf senior
Kylie Schimmoeller was third in the
girls 100-meter hurdles with a time of
16.11.
My personal record is 15.49, so I
know I can go faster. Im just thankful
that I qualified today, Schimmoeller
said. I made it to Regionals last year
but couldnt move on, so that was a bit
of motivation for me. I havent really
thought about what I have to do next
week or what to expect but just take it
one day at a time.
Finally, the Van Wert boys
4x400-meter relay the last event
of the day earned fourth as junior
Dylan Lautzenheiser, senior Kristofer
Hart, Hardmon and senior Cade Fleming
clocked a 3:26.06.
Though as a unit, they were pleased
with the advancing on to State, they
were not satisfied.
We can go faster. We know we can
go faster, so we will do what we have to
in order to do that, Hart stated.

#49T Gregg Dalman led the
field to green with Schroeder
grabbing the early advantage.
Elida Ohios Max Stambaugh
in the family-owned #5m
moved to 2nd early before
fading to finish 4th. A lap 3
red flag for #11 Tim Allison
tipping over was the only
caution in the 25-lap A Main
with Allison able to refire
and rejoin the field. #2 Kyle
Sauder methodically picked
his way through the field
from his 8th place starting
position to grab the lead on
lap 8, but all eyes were on
Horstman, as he headed up to
the high side of the track and
began his march to the front.
On lap 12, Horstman threw
a big slidejob on Sauder for
the lead but Sauder crossed
over and regained the point
with Horstman in tow. As the
duo made their way through
lapped traffic, Horstman used
the lapped car of #11 Tim
Allison as a pick to grab the
lead from Sauder for good

on lap #20. Horstman won


over Sauder, with Schroeder,
Stambaugh and #85 Dustin
Daggett rounding out the top
5.
Next up were the K&N
Filters UMP Modifieds in
their 20-lap A Main. A Pair
of 18 cars, driven by Randy
Lines and Ryan Sutter led the
field to the green flag, after a
spin on the intial start causing a complete restart. Lines
grabbed the early advantage,
but Sutter stayed close with
defending track champion,
Jeff Koz in the Jared and
Wendy Bennett owned #16 in
3rd. Sutter grabbed the lead
from Lines with Koz working the high side to make it a
3-way battle for the lead. Koz
worked by Sutter, but #9 Ken
Schrader began his march to
the front, getting by Sutter for
2nd on lap 14. Schrader, the
longtime NASCAR competitior, held the lead briefly from
Koz with a lap 16 slidejob,
but Koz crossed back over,
with the 2 running wheel to
wheel through lap 17 when

Schrader tried again to get by


Koz, this time using the middle of the track and drifting
high thru turn 4, leaving no
room for error for Koz, who
thread the needle between
the turn 4 wall and Schraders
car, getting a great run off the
corner and pulling away to
grab his 3rd win of the season
in defense of his 2015 track
championship. Schrader was
2nd, with Sutter 3rd, #11H
Mike Hohlbein 4th and #L5
Casey Luedeke 5th.
Completing the Memorial
Cup event were the Bud
Thunderstocks in their 15-lap
A Main. The current points
leader #22T Tony Anderson
and #21D Bob Daugherty
brought the field to green with
Anderson leading Daugherty
on the bottom of the track
while #82 Chris Douglas
headed to the high grabbing the 2nd spot. Anderson
seemed to have the race well
in hand even after restarts
bunched the field back up.

Wiechart earns Director Gold

According to a 2014
University of Michigan
Study, the average high
school senior who may
already be juggling a parttime job in addition to their
schoolwork knows little about saving or proper
money management.
In fact, they spend most of
what they earn on entertainment and clothing a pretty bad precedent for young
adults heading off to college
and the working world. At
that age, the money young
teens earn in the summer
usually comes from parents
for household chores like
mowing the lawn. Most parents never have a discussion
with their kids about how to
spend or save that money.
Young teens generally dont
think about whether something is a want or a need
it is typically a want,
which would be spent on a
game, candy or comics.
If youre the parent of
a 12-14-year-old, that might
give you pause or provide a great opportunity to
make a difference. Consider
using this summer to stop
your childs bad money habits before they kick in. After
all, even though most middle
schoolers are shy of legal
working age, many begin to
work at odd jobs that are
starting to put money in their
pockets you dont see.
Consider these steps for
an informal summer money
curriculum:
Introduce or reinforce
the Needs vs. Wants
talk. Maybe your child has
a spending goal for the summer new clothes, maybe
a smartphone. Its all about
intelligent money management, even if the goal is
somewhat short-term. The
needs vs. wants talk is all
about delayed gratification,
the foundational behavior
of healthy money management. Link it to smart shopping, encouraging the teen
to price-compare purchases,
gather coupons and come up
with other ways to save in

I used to rule the world,
Seas would rise when I
gave the word,
Now in the morning, I
sleep alone,
Sweep the streets I used
to own.
You may recall these lyrics from the song Viva La
Vida No. 1 in 2008. The
band Coldplay hit the 2016
Super Bowl Halftime stage
singing their smash hit. Viva
La Vida was the best selling album worldwide of 2008
with 6.8 million copies sold.
This song won for Song
of the Year at the Grammy
Awards in 2009. Beating
out Metallica for the award,
Chris Martin (band frontman) explained, Were not
the heaviest of rock bands were more like limestone, a
little softer, but just as charming. (songfacts.com)
The music industry classifies them as an alternative
band. By definition a band
that goes about making music
their own nonconformist way.
The alternative labeling leans
back to the 1990s with bands
like R.E.M. and Nirvana.

Coldplays distinct energy


filled music has a worldwide
appeal. They hit the music
scene with a song called
Yellow No. 48 back in
2001. Consider a few hits of
these millennial music makers:
Paradise No. 15 2011
Speed of Sound No. 8
2005
Clocks No. 29 2003
A Sky Full of Stars No.
10 2014
Every Teardrop Is A
Waterfall No. 14 2011
The ironic, alternative
draw of this band may be that
they dont strike you as rock
and rollers. All can enjoy their

inspiring, often introspective,


always-clean lyrics. No edginess, no controversy, indeed
a millennial alternative. In
every interview, frontman
Chris Martin presents with a
likeable, wholesome, playful
energy. It seems you cant
find any fault with this musical foursome. Positive and
refreshing seems their natural
flow to the pop music scene.
Perhaps treat yourself to a
youtube visit of their April
2016 video single release of
the song Up & Up. The
mesmerizing montage of this
most creative video is the farthest from a coldplay. Enjoy!

Weekly ODOT report


Information submitted
The following is a weekly report concerning construction and
maintenance work on state highways within the Ohio Department
of Transportation District 1. For the latest in statewide construction,
visit www.ohgo.com.
Week of May 30
Allen County
Interstate 75 from the Auglaize County line to Fourth
Street, through Lima and Allen County, will have occasional
lane closures throughout the year during the final year of the reconstruction of the interstate. Current and upcoming impacts to traffic
are as follows:
Traffic on I-75 north and south of the Ohio 65 interchange
area continues to travel in a contraflow pattern where two southbound lanes and one northbound lane of traffic are traveling on the
southbound side of the interstate, and one northbound lane is traveling on the northbound side of the interstate. Traffic will remain in
this pattern until late summer.
Beginning Tuesday and continuing for approximately three
weeks, the single northbound lane on Interstate 75 through the
contraflow area will close during the hours of 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. while
embankment work occurs.
During the lane closure, the entrance ramp from Ohio 65 to
northbound Interstate 75 will be intermittently closed, also between
the hours of 8 p.m. and 8 a.m.
Traffic will be detoured south on Interstate 75 to Breese Road
back to Interstate 75 northbound.
The exit ramp from northbound Interstate 75 to Ohio 65 will
remain open.
Heavy truck traffic will be present throughout the project
for the next several weeks, especially in the area of the Ohio 65
interchange and the Yoder Road area, near the Orthopedic Institute
of Ohio complex.
Yoder Road is occasionally closed during evening and overnight hours, but generally remains open during the operating hours
of the Orthopedic Institute of Ohio.
Hanthorn Road over Interstate 75 remains closed until June.
Ohio 309 will be impacted by several projects throughout
the construction season as follows:
Ohio 309 (Elida Road) from Robb Avenue to Cole Street, Lima,

roadway. The continuous turn from eastbound Ohio 309 to Grand
Avenue was permanently closed on March 14. Work is being performed by Smith Paving, Norwalk.
Paving will take place during this week. The upgrade of traffic
signals at Cole Street and Rosedale Avenue is scheduled to take
place later this summer.
The overall project will be completed in the fall.

including the village of Elida, will be restricted beginning in May
for widening, curb and gutter installation, drainage improvements
and resurfacing. Work is being performed by VTF Excavation
LLC, Celina.

for a culvert replacement. Traffic is detoured onto Ohio 309,

Ohio 65 from Yoder Road to East 4th Street will be closed
beginning on June 27 for approximately three days for culvert
replacements. Traffic will be detoured onto Interstate 75 to East
4th Street back to Ohio 65. Work is being performed by the ODOT
Allen County maintenance garage.
U.S. 30 eastbound between North Cool Road and County
Road 15 will be reduced to one lane through the work zone for
berm work. Work is being performed by the ODOT Allen County
maintenance garage.
Ohio 65, Ohio 81, Ohio 117 and Ohio 309 pavement repair
and resurfacing project will begin following the Memorial Day
holiday. Impacts to traffic will be as follows. Work is being performed by Shelly Company, Lima:

Jefferson students earn trip to Kings Island

Jobs

(Continued from page 1)

When we try to match the


youth, we take a look at what
their future employment and
education goals are and try to
identify a possible employer for
the summer in the community
that might give them some kind
of experience to see if theyre on
the right track or maybe they can
realize that something is really
not for them, Morrow said.
The list of employers given
to the youth are all businesses
who have been contacted and
agreed to work with the program.
There have been a lot
of organizations and a lot of
businesses, both for-profit and
non-profit, in Van Wert who
have been very supportive of
this program, but every year we
try to add more businesses in
so that it expands the types of
experiences that youth can have
when theyre coming through,
Morrow said.
While this is the first year
for the program in Van Wert
County, LACCA has administered it in Auglaize County
in previous years. LACCA is
the Workforce Innovation and
Opportunity Act youth program
provider in Ohio Area 8 which
consists of Auglaize, Hardin,
Mercer and Van Wert counties.
We are providing some youth
services for the 16-24-year-old
population already because Van
Wert County is one of the four
counties in Ohio Area 8. This is
expanding that program in conjunction with another program
that we are hopefully going to be

participants to complete a survey after their experience.
Weve had a lot of positive feedback that they really
enjoyed that they were involved
in the process of identifying
where they would be placed,
Morrow said. We do a career
interest survey with them during
their orientation so they were
very happy that they got to talk
about what their interests were
and what that might be like for
a job so they really felt like
they were doing something that
wasnt just work that they could
really use it as experience for the

will continue to accept youth
into the program throughout the

He was intense, loving, caring and very passionate. He was a great
man. He taught me a
great work ethic and that
I had to chase down my
dreams, work hard and
put in the time and effort
and I would get it, Hicks
said.
Smiths positive influence wasnt just felt by
the boys. He also attended
many girls sporting events
and often helped them as
well.
He made us team
players and helped us
on the court and in life,
Jessica Pimpas recalled.
He helped us all grow

Cancun, Mexico.
Smith coached youth

Trivia

Answers to last Saturdays questions:


Fire hydrants are now a common sight on city streets but its impossible to confirm who invented the first one. It is thought that Frederick Graff Sr., who was the
chief engineer of the Philadelphia Water Works, patented the first fire hydrant in
1801. However, this cannot be verified because the patent office burned down in
1836 and all the records were destroyed.
Everyone knows the heroine of Gone With the Wind as Scarlett OHara, but she
had a different first name in the initial drafts of Margaret Mitchells novel Pansy.
Todays questions:
What is werewolf syndrome?
Who saved Robert Todd Lincoln, President Abraham Lincolns oldest son, from
potential serious injury during an accident on a train platform?
Answers in Saturdays Herald.
Todays joke:
Grandma, who was becoming an evermore intimidating personality as the
years went on, was giving directions to her grown grandson who was coming to
visit with his wife:
You come to the front door of the apartment complex. I am in apartment 14T.
There is a big panel at the door. With your elbow push button 14T. I will buzz you
in. Come inside, the elevator is on the right. Get in, and with your elbow hit 14.
When you get out I am on the left. With your elbow, ring my doorbell.
Grandma, that sounds easy, but why am I hitting all these buttons with my
elbow? the grandson asked.
Youre coming empty handed?
