Residents to see levy renewal in November
BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — A measure to
place a renewal for the city’s 4.05mill, 5-year property tax levy on
the Nov. 8 ballot was heard for the
first time Monday.
The renewal has been certified
by the Allen County Auditor to
raise $160,320 per year.
“This is just a renewal and won’t
cost taxpayers any more in taxes,”

City Auditor Tom Jettinghoff said.
“The renewal of the levy will give
the city a little less each year but it
is needed revenue.”
The levy was first approved in
1976.
A copy of the approved resolution must be submitted to the
Board of Elections of Allen and
Van Wert counties prior to Aug. 8.
Council heard four other new
pieces of legislation on first reading. An ordinance for the 2017
Budget was read with revenue esti-

mated at $3, 119,000 and spending at $4,176,000. Some grants
and other revenus sources being
sought are not included. The budget needs to be to the Allen County
Auditor on or before July 20.
The second ordinance authorized the safety service director to
enter into an agreement with Allen
County Engineers for the tar and
chipping of various streets within
the city limits and in Allen County.
Proposed streets for this service
are: Washington Street from

DELPHOS — “Here’s the shoe!”
Mark Fuerst yells to Ed Wagner
when he picks up his child from
Franklin Elementary. Fuerst is referencing the time he yelled this
to Wagner in a playoff game at
Wynford right before Wagner put on
his kicking shoe and won the game.
Fuerst is a dedicated teacher who
took the time to teach his students
on a deeper level. He is a coach who
remembers every player and every
play and a principal who did his best
to learn every name.
Fuerst, who has been in education for 40 years, heard his last
school bell on Thursday.
He started his career at Franklin
Elementary, teaching fifth grade in
room 205. In 1978, he moved to
Landeck Elementary where he was
a fifth- and sixth-grade teacher and
the principal. After six years, he
moved back to Franklin Elementary,

ones they came up with,” Safety
Service Director Shane Coleman
said. “These are all in Allen
County and we are in the process of talking with independent
contractors for some streets in
Van Wert County. The county had
equipment problems last year and
was unable to help us out and so
they are behind this year and can’t
do it.”

25 Years Ago – 1991
It started as a hobby a few years ago. At first, it was just
ducks of bass wood, then it expanded into other birds. “At
first when I started carving, it was just ducks and I needed
books to show me what to do,” said Alan Bradstock of
Delphos. As he carved more, he soon learned how to try
things on his own. “Some of the finished products I keep
in Stallkamp’s. I have been doing this for six years besides
I work at Stallkamp Drugs. I find this relaxing,” he said.
Apollo Travel Agency will officially open its new office
at 303 N. Main St. Monday, according to company owners
Don and Mary Klock. The relocation was necessary when
Citizen’s Federal Savings and Loan purchased the present
office across the street. Apollo, which has maintained an
office in Delphos since November 1987, also has offices
in Lima and Wapakoneta.
St. John’s girls track Coach Dan Hopkins presented special awards to Kerri Wannemacher for most points scored.
Erika Anthony was runner-up. Kim Martin received the
award for most points scored in a field event. Anthony also
broke the school record in the 800-meter run with a time
of 2:26.58 and Wannemacher broke the school record for
the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 47.89.

10 Years Ago – 2006
The old saying goes “you can’t go home again.” Doug
Etgen hopes to prove that dictum incorrect as the St.
John’s alumnus returns to his alma mater to take over the
helm of the boys basketball program. Etgen, a 1989 graduate, was introduced at a press conference held at the East
Room of St. John’s High School. The personal side was
one of the major factors in his decision to apply for the
position after four years as head man and athletic director
at Marion Catholic.
Claryce Hickernell and Ardatha Mueller of Spencerville
have joined the Lions Cheer Club. Hickernell has lived her
life in the Mendon area, worked at Bordens, belongs to the
Order of Eastern Star, attends Mendon United Methodist
Church and has been on the Rainbow Girls Board. Mueller
has lived her life in the Delphos area, is a homemaker and
mother of five children and loves working with flowers.
This year the Delphos Kiwanis Club is sponsoring the
July 3 and 4 celebration at Stadium Park. The Optimist
Club will be providing bingo both days and a Fishing
Derby on July 3. The Phi Delta Sorority and the Food
Locker will be serving barbecue chicken dinners in the
shelterhouse. The Delphos Chamber of Commerce will
provide the fireworks starting at 10 p.m. on July 4.

Based on their knowledge of properties for certain types of substances, students Keaton
Gerdeman, Kaylee Buzard and Hali Haggard designed a “ship” for an egg that would allow
it to drop from various and considerable heights without breaking using scientific methods.

Morgan Martin, Kimberly Schaffner and Ethan Dunlap completed a 3-D model of an
element of their choice. This project helped students build on their knowledge of matter
and allowed them to familiarize themselves with the Periodic Table of Elements.

Coldwater defeats Kalida for Miller tourney title
BY LARRY HEIING
DHI Media Correspondent
news@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS — The Coldwater
Little League baseball team defeated the Kalida 12 squad Sunday
afternoon to win the seventh annual
Nathan Miller Memorial Baseball
Tournament.
Coldwater captured the title with
little rest over the weekend as the
Cavaliers defeated the Delphos
Braves Saturday night in a game
that ended near midnight.
After a long drive back to Mercer
County, Coldwater was back at
Stadium Park Sunday morning for a
matchup with Tinora. After defeat-

ing the Rams, Coldwater rallied
for a victory over St. Marys in the
semifinals.
Kalida doubled up Shawnee
Sunday morning 8-4 to move onto
the semifinal round.
The Wildcats survived a pitchers’
duel for the 2-1 victory over crowd
favorite Ft. Loramie to advance to
the championship game.
The start time for the championship bout was moved by two
hours to avoid another rain delay
caused by forecasted storms for the
Delphos area.
Coldwater jumped out to an
early 3-0 lead before Kalida battled
back to even the title bout. After the
orange and black took back the lead

4-3, Kalida’s Justin Siebeneck hit a
dramatic home run in the Wildcats’
last at-bat of regulation to send the
game to extra innings.
Coldwater’s Adam Hrycko
responded in the extra frame with a
homer to put the Cavs back in front.
After hits by Casey Goodwin and
Reece Dellinger, Isaac Fullenback
added a pair of much-needed insurance runs with a 2-out single to
plate the pair.
Down by four, Kalida wasn’t
about to go back to Putnam County
without a fight. The Wildcats loaded the bases but their comeback fell
short, falling 8-6.
In the consolation game, St.
Marys defeated Ft. Loramie 8-5 to

place third in the tournament.
Following an emotional speech
by Nathan Miller’s mother Angie,
Coldwater was presented their firstplace prize of mountain bikes for
each team member.
In addition to team awards, the
coaches selected outstanding players of the weekend to the tournament all-star team. Elected to the
team were: Damon Mescher and
Evan Eilerman (Ft. Loramie), Cyrus
Burden (Bath), Christian Commisso
(Tinora), Tanner Howell and Reese
Sweigart (St. Marys). Coldwater
was represented by three players:
Hrycko, Goodwin and Dellinger.
The lone Delphos player on the
all-star team was Colin Bailey of

the Braves.
Sunday followed a steady rain
all Saturday afternoon with all the
scheduled games completed.
Games were halted at the Dee
and Mel Westich Baseball Complex
when an early evening storm dump
a half - inch of rain on the Delphos
area.
The fields looked like the Major
Leagues when the “grounds crew”
of umpires and volunteers poured
drying agents on the puddles of mud
that accumulated on the diamonds.
After an hour-long rain delay, play
resumed with the last out being
recorded near midnight.

Jays edge Knights in 2-1 pitchers’ duel Who’s better? The
By Jim Cox
DHi media Correspondent
sports@timesbulletin.com

DELPHOS — Monday
evening’s ACME game
between Crestview and St.
John’s was delayed 35 minutes by lightning and a bit
of rain.
After that, though, the
weather — and the baseball
— were excellent.
The Blue Jays won 2-1
in a game that featured
some dandy pitching. St.
John’s is now 3-0 while
Crestview drops to 2-3.

The Jays used three pitchers, the best of the three performances coming from Jacob
Youngpeter. The hard-throwing lefty mixed a nice fast
ball with a sharp-breaking
curve through four textbook
shutout innings. He struck
out seven, walked none and
40 of his 56 pitches were
strikes. Two relievers, Corey
Kaverman and Troy Elwer
divided the remaining three
innings, with Elwer getting
the save, although he gave up
the lone Crestview run.
Meanwhile, the Knights’
Derek Stout also had a nice

outing. He went the distance, his repertoire featuring a good fast ball and
nice curve. He yielded the
two runs on six hits, striking out seven and walking
one. He threw 89 pitches,
62 of which were strikes.
Delphos scored once
in the bottom of the first
when second baseman Troy
Schwinnen reached on a
throwing error, stole second
and came in when catcher
Jaret Jackson’s flare found
the grass in shallow center.
The next serious scoring
threat came in the bottom

of the fourth when, with
one out, the Jays put runners on second and third
— hit batter (Jackson) and
double by first baseman
Eric Vogt. The runners held
as Youngpeter bounced
out to Stout. Kaverman,
who was playing shortstop
at that point, smoked an
opposite-field grounder
down the third base line.
Caden Hurless backhanded
the ball ten feet behind the
bag and gunned Kaverman
down to end the threat.

Stockwell pitches Jefferson to ACME win
BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

SPENCERVILLE — Jefferson’s
baseball coaches know who their ace
will be come spring of 2017.
Senior-to-be Jace Stockwell has
shown that so far in the 2016 ACME
Summer Baseball League.
He combined with Tyler Schrider
(who got his first save) to lift the Wildcats
to a 4-2 conquest on a warm, then cool
(once threatening skies passed), late
spring evening at Spencerville High
School.
Stockwell went six frames and fanned
10, walking one and ceding four hits and
two earned runs.
Spencerville, opening its summer
season, had taken a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the second before the Wildcats
(3-2) tied it with a single tally in the top
of the third: a 1-out walk to Stockwell

by starter Brady Nolan, a stolen base,
a Jacob Pulford groundout and a wild
pitch.
The Bearcats got a 2-out double to
right — Jordan Boop couldn’t come up
with the catch on a sliding attempt — in
the home half. When Brady Becker flied
out to left, that started a string of eight
straight outs, five via the strikeout.
Jefferson threatened to take the lead
in the top of the fourth on a 1-out liner
to left by Schrider, a walk to Dre Reed
and a bounceout to first by Caleb Lucas,
moving the runners up a base.
Delphos took the lead in the top of
the fifth. With one down, Stockwell
grounded a hit inside the third-base line,
advanced to third on a throwing error on
Pulford’s grounder and scored on Jordan
Boop’s blooper to left center field.
The visitors looked to add more
space in the upper sixth against reliever
Hunter Stephen: a rope double to left
by Schrider and a 2-out slash to center

by Jacob Boop. After the latter burgled
second, Stephen fanned the next batter.
Nolan finally broke Stockwell’s out
streak with a 1-out wicked-hop single
that handcuffed shortstop Mahlie and
into left field.
Delphos added an insurance run in
the seventh: a double to left center by
Stockwell, a 1-out grounder by Jordan
Boop and a bloop to short left center by
Shurelds.
Schrider ceded a leadoff slap to center by Zach Ringwald and wild pitches
eventually got him to third with two
outs. Chandler Kahle walked but J.T.
Thiery’s comebacker ended the game.
Jacob Boop led off the game with a
slap to center but Nolan picked him off.
Brett Mahlie doubled to right center,
Stockwell was safe on an error and a
free pass to Pulford loaded the bases.
Jordan Boop forced Mahlie at home on a
comebacker and Shurelds bounced out.

Association Finals
and already, the
presumed
champion Golden State
Warriors are being
compared — or comparing themselves? — to teams like the Showtime Los Angeles
Lakers of 1986-87.
That is, dead-eye shooting guard Klay Thompson — and
on the Warriors, that is a shared position because Steph Curry
and others all share that “position” — claimed they could beat
those Lakers.
I think it was more in jest to his father, former NBA great
Mychal Thompson, who was a backup center to Kareem
Abdul-Jabbar on those teams, but you know how things get
blown up in a hurry.
And the elder Thompson agreed with his son on that,
which “infuriated” one Earvin “Magic” Johnson so much that
he phoned Stephen A. Smith and soon-to-be departing Skip
Bayless on ESPN’s “First Take” Tuesday morning and disagreed with the youngster — and his former teammate.
It’s all good and playful, though it makes for some interesting comments!
I am a Laker fan — and I remain one despite their falling
apart at the seams.
I agree with my friend, Magic (he doesn’t know about that
secret friendship! ssshh!). They were smart, athletic, deep and
just wore teams down with their withering break and should
that not work, one Abdul-Jabbar would have a field day against
Andrew Bogut, etc.
Just like if you were a Boston Celtic fan of those days of
Larry Bird, Robert “The Chief” Parish, Kevin “Frankenstein”
McHale and Cedric “Cornbread” Maxwell; you would definitely say that the 1987-88 team that added one Bill Walton as
a superbackup would have squashed these Warriors like a bug.
That is why it is fun to have a good discussion — as long
as no one gets beat up! — about things like that but it’s all you
really can do.
It is hard to compare teams from different eras.

Blankemeyer, Siefker led area second-placers

Siefker had a strong day
competing in his first state
track meet finishing second
in the 1,600-meter run and

and Field Meet at Jesse Owens Memorial Field.
field championships didn’t
see any local athletes take the
top step on the podium.
Still, there was some hardware that came back to the
area as several athletes or
relay teams took their spot
on the awards stand at Ohio
State University’s Jesse
Owens Memorial Stadium
Saturday.
Lincolnview’s
Hunter
Blankemeyer, Ottoville’s
Brendan Siefker and the
Columbus Grove girls 400
Relay team had the top finishes of the day with runner-up
showings in their events.
L i n c o l n v i e w ’s
Blankemeyer finished second in the 100 hurdles for a
second straight year at state
in Division III. Blankemeyer
finished second to Northwest
Conference rival Trevor
Bassitt of Bluffton as he finished in 14.62 to Bassitt’s
14.53. Blankemeyer had the
third-best time entering the
finals at 14.73 behind Bassitt
and Arcadia’s Clint Recker.
“My race didn’t go as
clean as I wanted it to,” a disappointed Blankemeyer said.
“I hit the first hurdle pretty
hard and it slowed me down,
I fell behind and lost my
momentum. I didn’t get back
up to normally where I would
run. I could see where Trevor
was and I was just a little
behind him. Then I stumbled
coming over the last hurdle,
when I was about to sprint
to the finish. I stumbled and
I knew he had me. After
getting second last year, my
mindset was to be on the top
of the podium, it just didn’t

fourth in the 3,200-meter run.
Siefker took the lead early
in the 1,600 race and held
it for two laps before being
shuffled back in the pack
after being bumped rounding
the second turn on lap three.
Siefker crossed the finish line
in third place with a time of
4:00.00.
Before the medals were
handed out to the top eight,
Siefker was bumped up to
the runner-up finish as the
runner from Mount Gilead
was disqualified.
“To run such a good race
here today, it’s awesome,”
Siefker said. “I was hoping to run under 4:20 today
and I was a little under that,
so I was real happy. At the
beginning of the year, I never
thought I would be running
these times. My goal was
to get in the 4:20’s. I’m just
really happy and I’m excited
for next year.”
Siefker said the key to him
performing well in the 1,600
was the start as he wanted to
run a good first lap and did
completing it in 61 seconds.
He also had enough left in the
tank for a strong finish that
helped him get to the top of
the podium.
“The whole week, and last
week, me and coach have
been emphasizing a good
first lap,” Siefker said. “I
went out and ran a 61-second
split, so that was good. I had
a good start and the last 200
meters I had a good kick as I
passed four or five guys.”
Running in the middle of
the pack in the 3,200 with
a lap to go, Siefker used a

Lincolnview senior Hunter Blankmeyer clears his final hurdle and finished his scholastic career with a second-place finish in the 110-meter high hurdles Saturday during the
Division III State Track and Field Championships.
16th in the 3200 meter run
with a time of 12:42.39.
For the Bulldog boys,
senior Baily Clement made
two trips to the awards stand
as he was sixth in the 400
dash in 50.55 and he joined
senior Alex Giesige and
juniors Caiden Grothaus and
Boone Brubaker to finish
eighth in the 1,600 Relay in
3:26.91.
“Sometimes life is not
always fair; you don’t finish
how you want to finish. You
don’t get what you want to
get but that’s just how it is
sometimes,” Clement said. “I
got the baton in eighth and
tried to do what I could and
your back 20 meters it’s hard
to catch someone.”
“It wasn’t what I expected
it to be,” Giesige said. “Still
not many people come down
here four times. You have to
be happy with what you get,
take it and enjoy what you
get.”
Van Wert seniors Katie
Trittschuh and Keagan
Hardmon both walked away
from the 2016 championships
with two medals around their
necks. Both of these athletes
only competed the last two
years for the Cougar track
teams.
Trittschuh picked up

finals, Shelby’s CeCe King
passed her with a throw of
39-1/2. Trittschuh reclaimed
the seventh position on her
next attempt with a throw of
39-9, which was her best of

the day.
“In discus my best throw
was my first one and today
my best throw was my second
from the last one,” Trittschuh
said. “I just calmed down,
thought about where I wanted
to be and I was able to pull
it off. I just told myself this
is not where I wanted to be
since I finished eighth yesterday, I wanted to get higher
than that. It was a little anger
inside me and I wanted to
make it happen. And I did.”
Hardmon, a senior, finished fourth for a second
straight year in the 400 dash
running a time of 48.76. The

job.”
“This feeling is totally
indescribable. It absolutely takes your breath away,”
Stephens said. “As soon as
I saw Raiya start the relay,
I knew we would be off to
a great start. Of course I’m
only 5-2, so it’s hard for me
to see any of the race. But I
knew we were good hands
and I saw we were picking off more people. Once
I got the baton, I knew I
couldn’t let them down, I
could let myself down and I
couldn’t let down the town of
Columbus Grove. I feel like
we are all winners.”
Sophomore
teammate
Taylor Ellerbrock finished

her second medal Saturday
morning by finishing seventh
in the shot put with a throw
of 39-9.
“I couldn’t be happier
right now,” Trittschuh said.
“I had a foot and a half PR,
so I am really proud of that.
I want to thank my coaches
because I wouldn’t have been
so successful without them.
I’m really glad I joined the
track team when I did and
I’m thankful for what they
have taught me.”
Trittschuh used her training Saturday to finish in seventh place. The Cougar senior
was seventh after the prelims
with a top throw of 38-11.

strong finish to grab fourth
place with a time of 9:31.58.
His time was nearly six
seconds quicker than what
he qualified to state with
(9:37.23) at the regional
meet.
“Beforehand, I was a little
shaky,” Siefker said of the
3200. “My legs were still a
little tired yet from the mile.
It was fortunate the first three
or four laps were a little slow
and that helped me a lot. It
took me about three laps to
get settled in. The last 800 I
felt good again.”
Ottoville’s 1,600 Relay
team of Lindsay Schweller,
Madison Knodell, Alicia
Honigford and Brooke
Mangas ran a 4:04.08 to finish in eighth place.
“We wanted a little bit
better time but our main goal
was to get on the podium
and we did,” Knodell said.
“We were happy with that.
Next year we’ll come back
with a stronger time. It will
be our second year, as this
was Lindsay’s first time here;
now she knows it and we all
know it even better.”
Columbus Grove’s 400
relay team of Raiya Flores,
Rylee Sybert, Bailey Dunifon
and Linnea Stephens finished
second in a time of 50.55.
Needless to say, the Lady
Bulldogs were happy to finish as the runner-up although
they had the lead for a portion of the race.
“Tears, a lot of tears,
excitement,” Flores, a senior
said. “This is kind of surreal. Last year we didn’t even
make finals and the year
before that we were seventh
or eighth. To make that big
of an improvement in my
and Linnea’s senior years, it’s
something you don’t imagine that can happen, but it
did and it’s just awesome.
Starting off I knew I had to
get that lead because all the

I broke my record (personal) again. I was kind of
impressed with myself. This
was only my second year. I
broke a lot of records and I
definitely improved as I had
a 48.76 to get fourth and had
a 49 last year for fourth. The
times, definitely, were a lot

Stivers senior Tyler
Johnson won the 400 in a
state-record time of 46.61,
which was a full second
quicker than what he ran last
year in winning the race.

Spencerville went up 2-1 in the home

Musings

(Continued from page 6)
Those Showtime Lakers were in an era
when hand-checking was allowed and much
more prevalent, for example; it was harder
for players to get to the basket and they still
scored 118 points a game.
As others have pointed out and all of
us who watch the game can all plainly see,
though, the 3-pointer has become a much
more significant part of the game that is opening up the lane and old-school back-door cuts,
for example.
And the Warriors have brought back the
fast break as a major part of their offense
much more than even teams led by Steve
Nash did just 10 years ago.
In those days, true centers — you know,
guys that could play with their backs to the
basket — were much more a part of the game
than today; they are replaced by “stretch” 5s
and “stretch” 4s.
Even a guy like Dave Cowens or Alvin
Adams (showing my age, ain’t I?), who would
have fit right in today with their high-post
abilities to shoot and pass, were good around
the basket.
Today, the import of the European big man
has changed that, as well as the changing
game in American high schools and colleges.
There are still some centers that don’t venture five feet from the basket, like Superman

Miller

(Continued from page 6)

“Craig Mansfield and
our Delphos City Parks
Department do a great job
keeping the diamonds in top
form,” commented Miller.
“We’ve had rain on six out of
seven years of this tournament
and with the exception of last
year, we’ve played through it.

Dwight Howard, but he is on his way out.
Versatility is the name of the game and the
Warriors — and those Showtime Lakers —
are as versatile as anyone.
I am waiting for someone to come out with
a video game — or other gadget — with these
two teams matching up and see who wins with
today’s rules, yesterday’s rules, even rules in
the 1960s.
How would these Warriors match up with
the Celtics of Bill Russell.
Do you ever think we will see anyone
averaged 50 points a game for a season like
Wilt the Stilt or 23 rebounds like Chamberlain
or Russell?
Or how would they handle the Michael
Jordan-led Chicago Bulls of 1995-96 that won
72 games?
Needless to say, we will never know the
real answer, though we can speculate — and
hopefully have a little fun doing it!
All I know is this: great teams and great
players would be great in any era or rules.
Can you imagine the monster a Wilt the
Stilt would have been with today’s training
methods, even as he was a physical freak in
those days?
Or transport Lebron James to 1968 without
these methods. I think he’d have still been
quite good, don’t you?
Let’s finish the series before any more
foolishness!

Out of town coaches and parents compliment us over and
over during the weekend how
beautiful our park is and how
lucky we are to have such a
great facility.”

Building a financial emergency
kit for your family
BY NATHANIEL SILLIN

What would a sudden
financial emergency be
in your life? It could be a
storm causing massive property damage to your home.
It could also be something
more personal, like an accident that would cut off your
ability to make a living.
Whatever it is, if someone else had to step in to
help you in an emergency
situation, it’s important to
have a plan in place so they
know what to do.
A financial emergency
kit is a crucial component
in financial planning. In
short, a financial emergency kit involves identifying
and planning for potential
financial emergencies that
could affect you and your
loved ones. Building a successful one goes beyond
sorting paperwork – it
involves looking at a variety of potential situations
in your life and then asking, “What’s the worst that
could happen?”
You will want to create a
kit – a set of physical or digital documents and instructions – that can help you or
someone else you trust manage in a crisis. Here are some
items you’ll likely want to
include:
1. Estate documents.
Estate planning is really
the highest form of financial emergency planning,
because it addresses the
ultimate personal financial
emergencies – medical incapacitation or death. Would
your family have easy access
to this material if something
happened to you? In your
family financial emergency kit, estate documents
would include copies of
current wills (for you and
your spouse or partner), your
advanced directives (which
instruct doctors on end-oflife or other stages in med-

and guides. Some people
need a little guidance, others
need a lot. A family financial emergency kit needs to
be usable by all designated
family members. Put yourself in the role of a friend or
family member who’s been
called in to help you in a
crisis. If you had to step in
to settle an estate, healthcare
or disaster emergency for
a friend or family member
and they weren’t around to
advise you, what information would you need to get
started? In any category of
information you include in
a financial emergency kit,
include a separate file or digital instruction that details
people to call, account numbers if necessary, relevant
online and physical addresses and other key data to
advise that person about
what’s in front of them and
what they should do. If you
work with qualified financial
experts, make sure their contact information is included.
6. Easy access to essentials under lock and key.
If you’re away from home
when damage occurs or if
family members need to
access vehicles or other
spaces, make sure you have
keys and access codes locked
safely in your emergency
kit. You will also want to
ensure that your emergency
contacts have the necessary
access to your emergency
kit in order to retrieve these
materials. You or loved ones
might also need access to
funds, particularly cash in
an emergency. If you don’t
have a bank account established strictly for emergencies that allows specific family members to write checks
or make cash withdrawals,
you should consider it.
Bottom line: Building
a financial emergency kit
requires some thinking,
but it can help you avoid
major losses and speed up
decision making in a crisis.
Work with people you trust
to make it accessible and
useful to your family and
trusted individuals.

ical care), health/financial
powers of attorney (which
designate specific individuals to step in to manage
your money or healthcare
if you cannot do so) as well
as other documents that provide additional guidance for
operating businesses and
managing and distributing
other assets you have. Make
sure these documents are
always current and that contact information is included
for all the qualified experts
you used to prepare them –
estate or business attorneys,
tax professionals and financial planners.
2. Insurance policies.
Being able to find home and
auto policies in a natural
disaster is a no-brainer, but
it’s important to think a little
more broadly. File as much
policy and contact detail
as you can for any health,
disability, business, life and
accident coverage you have
– and remember that it’s particularly important to note
or file documentation on
this coverage at work, too.
Sometimes we sign up rather blindly for work-based
benefits only to realize how
important they may be in a
financial emergency.
3. Tax materials. If a family member dies or becomes
incapacitated, tax matters
still need to be attended to.
If you work with a tax professional, make sure their
contact information is in the
digital or physical kit (see
indexes, contacts and guides,
below), but it’s also important to keep past returns and
relevant supporting data
based on your individual tax
situation.
4. Investment, savings and
retirement documents. If you
work with a qualified financial planner or tax expert,
you may have access to a
particular system that lists
and track this information in
an organized way that many
of us don’t have at home.
However you plan and track
your investments, it should
be included in your kit.
5. Indexes, contact sheets

trump Perry and Bing; you decide.
Consider his “Johnny’s
Greatest Hits” compilation
album run on the pop charts back
in the day: “The album made
its debut on the Best Selling
Pop LP’s chart in the issue of
The Billboard dated April 14,
1958, and eventually spent three
weeks at number one. It had its
last appearance there over 10
years later, in the July 20, 1968,
issue, which marked its 490th
non-consecutive week there, a
record for the most number of
weeks on the magazine’s list of
the most popular pop albums in
the US that it held for 15 years
until Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of
The Moon reached 491 weeks
there in the issue dated Oct. 29,
1983.” (Wikipedia)
Longtime Tonight Show host
Johnny Carson said of Mathis,
“Johnny Mathis is the best ballad singer in the world.” He
made 33 appearances on the
Tonight Show through the years.

An interesting side story
to Mathis’s music is his role
as narrator of the ESPN film
documentary ’51 Dons. “In
1951, future Pro Football Hall
of Famers Gino Marchetti,
Bob St. Clair and Ollie Matson
powered the University of
San Francisco Dons to a sparkling 9-0 record. As one of the
nation’s top teams, USF seemed
assured of their first-ever bowl
bid and a payout that would
save their cash-strapped program. The Dons were invited
to Miami under one condition –
they take the field without their
two African-American stars,
Ollie Matson and Burl Toler.
The Dons refused. By choosing
not to play, they set a precedent
of racial equality more than a
decade before the Civil Rights
Movement”. (Wikipedia)
Johnny Mathis, an accomplished track athlete in his own
right, was a good friend of
Ollie Matson having sung at
Matson’s wedding.
Johnny Mathis sits in the
Pantheon of All Time Great
Singers. Beginning with the
1950s, Mathis has achieved hit
records in every decade to present. The year 2016 marks his
60th year of delighting audiences with his amazing voice.
Good Vibrations indeed.

a wholesome, velvety tender,

2016 Relay and Bark for Life honorary chairs

Della and Clair Lucas

Couple fought cancer
diagnoses together
BY KRISTI FISH
DHI Media Staff Writer
news@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS — Della Lucas received her
cancer diagnosis in November 2006. Her
husband, Clair, received his diagnosis only a
few months later in February 2007. Together,
they will serve as honorary chairs for the 2016
Relay for Life.
On Nov.20, 2006, Della was told she had
cancer.
“I remember that date well,” she said.
Her doctors informed her she had stage one
breast cancer. She received chemotherapy and
radiation. She also took steroids which she
believes contributed to her sleepless nights.
Della remembers none of the food she ate
tasted good; it tasted like tin.
Clair is quick to point out that he was
lucky.
“I did not have as many adverse effects as
she did,” he said.
His cancer was caught early.
In 2007, Clair went to the doctors for a
routine checkup, where some of his numbers
in the blood work were higher than normal.
They later informed him he had prostate
cancer.
“The doctors called it early-stage,” Della
said.
Clair had radiation and took medication
to treat his cancer — one of his treatments
was seed therapy — but he did not receive

chemotherapy.
“I was fortunate it got caught early; I just
went in for a regular check-up,” he said.
Della said the diagnoses were manageable
because they had each other.
“We got through it together,” she said.
“But it makes you stop and think.”
“Yeah, it makes you think about others
who are worse off than we were,” Clair finished for her.
Della said she wants those facing cancer to
know there are good doctors.
“I should say there are caring doctors, too,”
she said. “You’re not just a number to them.”
Clair said his experience made him appreciate his friends and family more and Della
believes her experience brought her closer
to God.
They will lead the Survivors Lap on Friday
at Relay for Life.
“I want to be able to show people there are
survivors,” Della said.
Clair and Della also had advice for those
who want to help catch cancer in its early
stages.
“Get a yearly checkup,” Clair said. “I
never had any symptoms before.”
Della is also quick to remind women to
receive mammograms every year like she
does.
“So many people think they’ve never had
cancer so it won’t happen to them but all you
need is that one time,” she added.

Brittany Schimpf, center, and her dog, Peanut.

Schimpf’s chihuahua small but
mighty in her breast cancer journey
BY KRISTI FISH
DHI Media Staff Writer
news@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — On June
11, pets and their owners will gather at Leisure
Park to raise money for the
American Cancer Society
through Bark for Life.
Brittany Schimpf will be
the grand marshal of the
event.
In August 2015, Schimpf
received the diagnosis. She
had breast cancer. One
week later, she had surgery
to remove two tumors and
lymph nodes.
Schimpf has since gone
through chemotherapy and
radiation treatments. She
started a new medication
that she will take for two
years before switching to
another chemo drug for
three years. In September,
she will head back to the
doctor’s office to receive a
scan to see what has hap-

pened with the cancer.
In June, she will participate in Bark for Life with
her dog, Peanut. Peanut is
a 3 1/2-pound Chihuahua
who has been a part of
Schimpf ’s support system since she received the
diagnosis. Although he is
small and cannot retrieve
things for her, he can provide her comfort.
“He has laid in bed with
me a lot,” Schimpf said.
Bark for Life honors the
contributions and support
of “canine caregivers.”
Schimpf got involved
when her veterinarian
asked her if she would like
to be the grand marshal.
“My vet asked me to do
it,” she said. “She treats
you like family, so she
knew what was happening
in my life.”
The others in her support system include her
husband, her four daughters, her other family and

friends.
“My support system is
awesome,” she said. “My
family has just been there
to back me up.”
Schimpf plans to raise
money for Bark for Life
by selling raffle tickets.
Wal-Mart donated a TV to
her cause, so she has been
selling raffle tickets. So
far, she has made more
than $200 and hopes to
raise at least $500 for Bark
for Life.
Schimpf hopes Bark
for Life will allow her to
meet others who have been
through similar experiences.
She hopes others will
learn by attending Relay
for Life on Friday and
Bark for Life on Saturday
that cancer affects more
than just the patient.
“Cancer doesn’t just
affect you, the person with
cancer; it affects all of
your loved ones,” she said.

Breakfast at St. Peter’s serves 24 in first 24 minutes
Hannah Joseph, left, Alanna Knebel and Alivia Joseph enjoy breakfast at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. Breakfast is offered for kids at 8-9 a.m.
on Monday-Friday through August. Pancakes and cereal are served every morning. French Toast is also served on Tuesdays and scrambled eggs
and meat on Wednesdays. Kids also receive a sack lunch. Those who want to volunteer and are of high school age or older may call Susan McGue
at 419-234-6448. Donations are welcomed, particularly snack-sized containers of pudding, jello, fruit and applesauce. (DHI Media/Kristi Fish)

Council
(Continued from page 1)
Councilman Del Kemper also
requested the maintenance crew
take a hard look at some the alleyways in town.
“Some of those alleys are
well-traveled,” Kemper said.
“There are some pretty big potholes
that could do some real damage.”
Coleman said the Maintenance
Department was looking into alleys
as well and were waiting on the
city’s grader to be fixed.
The third ordinance authorized
Jettinghoff to issue payment of
$79,226 to Stolly Insurance for
the city’s property, general liability
and fleet insurance for the 2016-17
year. Mayor Michael Gallmeier told
council the cost was less than last
year. The ordinance also extends
the contract with Stolly for three
years. Coverage expires on June
30. Council opted to let the ordi-

nance ride for another reading.
Council heard on second reading
an ordinance increasing the pay of
auxiliary patrolmen from $10 to
$11 per hour. It has been at least 15
years since the auxiliary personnel
have seen a raise.
Coleman gave his administrative
report starting with the $97,000
rebate the city recently received
from AEP Ohio.
“We submitted the pilot project
for the rebate and it was granted,”
Coleman said. “We may be eligible
for once the build-out is completed.”
Smaller screens are needed at
the wastewater treatment. Coleman
said he was looking at a demonstration unit of the smaller screening
for $50,000 so the city could get
a true test of the process as well
as the new technology used at the
plant during the Fibracast pilot
project.

“It would be removed when
we do the build-out next year,”
Coleman said. “We talked to DEFA
and they are re-evaluating our
application because of the process change and it will include the
screen demo.”
The city did not receive a Safety
Grant for assistance in purchasing
a new ambulance. Coleman said
the vehicle was still needed and
council would have to look at the
budgets when considering the purchase.
On the flip side, Coleman said
the governor’s Capital Budget
includes $125,000 for the Kiwanis
Splash Pad Project.
Coleman also reported he, the
mayor and Fire Chief Kevin Streets
continue to meet with American,
Marion and Washington Township
representatives on safety service
contracts.
The Natureworks project at the

Delphos-Gillmor Reservoir has
been pushed back due to rain.
“The project should still be completed by the end of the June,”
Coleman noted.
Liebrecht Construction has been
awarded the bid for upgrades to the
walking path around the reservoir.
The plan is to re-grade the existing aggregate, add four inches of
Ohio Department of Transportation
aggregate and remove vegetation
from the reservoir walkway.
Coleman added that the administration would have proposals of
changes in the city’s water and
sewer policies, including adjustments and tap fees. He added that
he is ready to put out the bid for
changing the city’s water meters
and purchasing automatic readers.
Council also approved donating
a family swim pass to the Canal
Days Committee as a prize for
Purse Bingo.

Trivia

Answers to last Saturday’s questions:
Singer Bruno Mars’s real name is Peter Gene Hernandez.
During medieval times, a knight would tie or pin a
certain lady’s “favor” (a scarf, ribbon or handkerchief)
to indicate his performance at a jousting tournament was
dedicated to her.
Today’s questions:
While they were best known for protecting the president, U.S.
Secret Service was originally created to fight what problem?
An artist from Iowa built a complete model of what
fictional building entirely out of matchsticks?
Answers in Saturday’s Herald.
Today’s joke:
A jogger running down a country road is startled as
a horse yells at him, “Hey, come over here buddy!” The
jogger is stunned but runs over to the fence where the
horse is standing and asks, “Were you talking to me?”
The horse replies, “Sure was, man I’ve got a problem. I won the Kentucky Derby a few years ago and this
farmer bought me and now all I do is pull a plow and
I’m sick of it. Why don’t you run up to the house and
offer him $5,000 to buy me. I’ll make you some money
cause I can still run.”
The jogger thought to himself, “Boy, a talking
horse!” Dollar signs started appearing in his head. So
he runs to the house and the old farmer is sitting on
the porch. The jogger tells the farmer, “Hey man, I’ll
give you $5,000 for that old broken down nag you’ve
got in the field.”
The farmer replies, “Son, you can’t believe anything
that horse says. He’s never even been to Kentucky.”

Siefker laid to rest in fitting style
Bob Siefker was laid to rest on Tuesday. In keeping with his love of old cars, his casket, made of barn side oak from a nearly 200-year-old tobacco farm in Louisiana,
was taken to Walnut Grove Cemetery in the back of Siefker’s 1949 International
pick-up truck. Fellow Delphos Area Car Club members also drove their vintage
vehicles to the cemetery. (DHI Media/Nancy Spencer)

LEAVE WILDLIFE IN THE WILD

Throughout his career,
Fuerst has made himself
known to many residents in
Delphos but he has also made
an effort to know them.
Fuerst prides himself on
remembering his students.
When he sees them in the
store or out on the street, he
does his best to call them by
their name.
“It shows them they had an
impact on my life,” he said.
“Hopefully, I had an impact
on theirs.”
Fuerst also remembers
many of the plays he watched
his players run. He remembers
the halfback pass they would
start off almost every game
with for the freshman football
team in 1978. He remembers
Chuck Wilson throwing the
football to Curt Fish and he
remembers the play ending
in a touchdown almost every
time. He also remembers their
only loss was to a junior varsity team at Wayne Trace that
year.
He remembers when the
football team went to The
Horseshoe in Columbus for
the state championship in
1985. He remembers the team
that came back the next year
that went 10-0 and didn’t
even make the playoffs. He
remembers teaching reading
and English when he thought
he’d enjoy math more, but he
was proud of that year.
“Our scores came out very
well,” he said. “I was very
proud of those students.”
Fuerst remembers the players on nearly every team he
coached and the students in
nearly every class he taught.
He just has to say the alphabet
sometimes.
“If I go through the alphabet, I can usually come up
with the name,” he said.
Fuerst knew so many of
the people of Delphos whether
they were in his classroom or
out on one of the many fields
he coached on. He coached
football as an assistant, he was
an assistant and head coach for
basketball and an assistant and
head coach for baseball.
“I enjoyed getting to work
with elementary kids during
the day and high school kids
after school,” he said.
When Fuerst leaves, he
looks forward to spending
time with his 10 grandchildren
but he doesn’t plan on forgetting the children he taught.
“I hope they know they
were a top priority,” he said.
He once spent a year working with a student to help him
pass his proficiency tests and
called him at the end of the
year to tell him he had passed
all five of them.
“That stands out to me,”
Fuerst said. “I wanted to call
him. We usually just send
those reports home.”
When Fuerst leaves, he
plans to take a little something
with him.
“I have so many memories
and they’re going to be things
that I take with me for the rest
of my life.”
Fuerst hopes to leave
behind something for the students and staff, too.
“I hope I leave behind that
a little extra effort means so
much,” he said. “I hope I led
by example.”
Fuerst has spent more than
half of his life in education and
it will be a big change going
from his strict schedule during
school to a retired life, but he
knew it was time to leave.
“It’s been forty years,” he
said. “It’s time.”
Whether he was teaching,
coaching, or leading as principal, Fuerst had one philosophy.
“I dedicated myself to the
job I was doing,” Fuerst said.
He may have taught students, but Fuerst was able to
learn from them, too.
“I learned that not every situation was what it seemed,” he
said. “You had to adapt to the
specific needs of the child.”
Next school year, Bob
Hohlbein will take over the
position and Fuerst is positive
Hohlbein will do a good job.
“Mr. Hohlbein has been
an asset to me these five
years that I’ve been back at
Franklin,” Fuerst said. “I hope
that he learned as much from
me as I’ve learned from him.”
Fuerst spent 40 years in
education and 35 of them were
with Delphos City Schools.
After he leaves, he doesn’t
plan to forget the time he spent
there.
“I will always be a
Wildcat,” Fuerst said.
