Miller Contracting wins bid
for Career Connections Center
BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — Miller Contracting
Group, Inc., of Ottoville was awarded the bid for the construction of the
Career Connections Center at Jefferson
High School at $508,954. Miller’s bid
was lowest of seven received, including Alexander and Bebout, Charles
Construction, HA Construction,
Kuhlman Builders, Mullenberry
Construction
and
Westerheide
Construction.
All seven also submitted bids for
the solar panel project that accompanies the center and County Electric
submitted a bid for the solar panel project only. County Electric was awarded
the bid for $137,950.
Jefferson High School teacher Missy McClurg, who wrote and
received the $999,785 Straight A Grant
from the state, was ecstatic the bids
came in under her proposed budget.
“We adjusted some things from the

architect’s original plans and we decided to concentrate on the inside of the
center rather than how it will look on
the outside so we were able to come
in $25,000 under budget,” McClurg
said. “We were so far under budget we
were able to add in some things like
wainscoting brick on the outside to add
a little bit of the fanciness back. We’re
also going to have some surprises in
the maker-space area students aren’t
expecting so that will be exciting.”
Another adjustment to the bid
requests was moving the completion
date from mid-December to Feb. 17.
“That saved us $7,500 alone,”
McClurg said.
Construction on the project is
expected to begin next week.
The Career Connection Student
Center will encourage career exploration, such as job-shadowing, interview
practice, future career exploration,
skill-building activities, etc.
The building will include five spaces:
— Audio Visual Room

— Conference Room
— Module Career Pod area tooled
for a career-based learning activity to
mimic job-shadowing experiences
— A lecture area with seating
— Future career maker-space to
explore STEM, coding, green energy,
etc.
There will also be two restrooms.
The center will be a field trip destination for students in grades 7-12
for career exploration at all education
levels from high school diploma to
doctorate level based on the 45 jobs
most in demand in Ohio. For example: in the bio-medical pod, a student
will be able to design a prosthetic and
have a finished product by using a 3D
printer.
The district will hold an auction
beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday in the
Jefferson Middle School parking lot.
Some items that will be sold include
used desks, chairs, projectors, maps,
universal weight equipment and more.

Aiden’s Avengers, community help family with expenses
A memorial benefit was held on Saturday for Aiden Dotson. Dotson lost his battle with cancer on July 5 at the
age of 7. There were carnival games, bouncy houses, a dunk tank, cornhole, a DJ, home run derby and food. The
money being raised was to pay for Aiden’s medical expenses. Those in attendance could also purchase Aiden’s
Avengers T-shirts that were still available. A silent auction, 50/50 and raffle were also part of the event. (DHI

August National Immunization Awareness Month
BY COLIN KRIEGEL
DHI Media Community Reporter
ckriegel@timesbulletin.com
VAN WERT — Back-to-school season is just weeks
away and that means parents/guardians are out getting
supplies, new clothes and back packs. It is also the perfect
time to make sure your kids are up to date on their vaccines
against rare but serious diseases.
To emphasize the importance of immunizations for
everyone, and to make sure that children in particular
are protected with all of the vaccines they need, the
Ohio Department of Health (ODH) is joining the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
in recognizing August as National Immunization
Awareness Month.
Kim Haas, director of nursing at the Van Wert County
Health Department, says it is imperative to get children
scheduled for their immunizations before school starts, or as
early as possible in the school year.
“Not only is it a state mandate, but they help to prevent

the spread of disease because of the close proximity of
everyone in the classroom, lunch table, etc.,” Haas said.
“Also, if there would be an outbreak of a vaccine-preventable disease, the school will require the unvaccinated child
to stay home until the outbreak is over.”
“Getting children all of the vaccines recommended by
CDC’s immunization schedule is one of the most important
things parents can do to protect their children’s health and
that of classmates and the community,” said ODH Medical
Director Dr. Mary DiOrio. “If you haven’t done so already,
now is the time to check with your doctor to find out what
vaccines your child needs and when.”
Unvaccinated children are at increased risk for contracting vaccine-preventable diseases like measles, mumps and
rubella. They also may spread diseases which are serious or
potentially life-threatening for high-risk individuals such as
infants who are too young to be fully vaccinated and others
who have weakened immune systems due to other health
conditions.

DELPHOS — Roger L.
Closson, 72, of Delphos, passed
away Friday at his home surrounded by his loving family.
His Family…. He was
born June 29, 1944, in Lima
to George and Mary (Meeks)
Closson, who both preceded
him in death. On Nov. 16, 1963,
he married Anna Jayne Hittle,
who preceded him in death on
April 4, 2015.
He is survived by three sons,
Jeff (Julie) Closson, Matt Closson and Tony (Sharon) Closson,
all of Delphos; a daughter, Jennifer Closson of Delphos; seven
grandchildren, Jeff Closson Jr., Garrett Closson, Trent Closson,

great-grandson, Liam Closson; a great-granddaughter, Anna Jayne
Lehmkuhle; a brother, Mike (Gloria) Closson; and a sister, Judy
(Mike) Parsons of Delphos.
He was also preceded in death by brothers, Harold and George
Closson; and an infant brother, Dwight.
His Legacy…. He retired from General Motors, Defiance in
1988. A millwright, he could do and fix just about anything. An
entrepreneur, Roger participated in countless business ventures. He
was opportunistic and has a knack for making things work.
A man of impeccable character, Roger lived a life marked with
excellence! His work ethic was second to none. His dedication to
his family was unsurpassed.
Full of knowledge and wise counsel, he lovingly and masterfully instructed his children and grandchildren. His unique sense of
humor made him a joy to be around. He was humble, compassionate and dependable — he was a man of his word.
This temporary absence creates a great void but an even greater
hope for the future. His family anxiously yearns for the day in which
they are reunited once again…this time for eternity. Although losing
the battle to cancer, Roger gained the ultimate prize of eternal life.
His Farewell Services.… Celebration of life service will begin
at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Weber Funeral Home, Delphos, the Rev.
Rich Biclawski officiating. Burial will follow in King Cemetery,
rural Middle Point.

Week of Aug. 8
Allen County
Interstate 75 from the
Auglaize County line to
Fourth Street, through
Lima and Allen County,

Interstate 75 for completion
of the concrete pavement.
Traffic shifts and restrictions
in this area will continue for
the next three weeks.
— 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.
— On Friday, the barrier
wall on I-75 in the northbound direction through the
contraflow area was removed.
The right-hand, northbound
lane will be closed as well as
the northbound entrance and
exit ramp at Ohio 65.
Exit ramp traffic will be
detoured north on Interstate
75 to Fourth Street to

wall on I-75 in the southbound direction through the
contraflow area was removed.
Traffic will be restricted to
one lane during the removal.
The southbound entrance and
exit ramps are not expected to
be affected.
Heavy
construction
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.
Milling of the pavement
throughout the entire project area in preparation for
paving was started this week
and will reduce traffic to one

The Price is Right Live

BY KRISTI FISH
DHI Media Staff Writer
news@delphosherald.com

LIMA — The Price is Right
Live is coming to the Veterans
Memorial Civic and Convention
Center on November 11 in
Lima.
Pre-sale tickets will be available starting Aug. 10, and general public tickets will be available starting at noon on Aug. 12.
“Last year this was a sell
out event, so the tickets will go
fast,” Box Office and Marketing
Coordinator Michelle Frank
said.
For those interested in presale tickets, a donation to the
Civic Center Foundation is

required for early access. The
donation is tax deductible.
The event is a Civic Center
Foundation show and all the
proceeds will go back to the
foundation.
However, tickets purchased
both pre-sale and as part of the
general public do not guarantee
a chance to get on stage.
“You have to register at least
three hours before the show, so
at 4:30 p.m. at the registration
area,” Frank said.
The participants will then be
drawn from the pool of eligible
registrants.
Tickets for the event are $48,
$38 and $32 depending on the
distance from the stage.

PET CORNER
The Humane Society of Allen County has many pets
waiting for adoption. Each comes with a spay or neuter,
first shots and a heartworm test. Call 419-991-1775.

Aggie, left, and Dory were rescued from a puppy mill.
Both are sweet and very shy. They take some time to
warm up and are learning to socialize with people. They
are bonded and the two must stay together.
The following free pets are in need of a new loving
home through the Animal Protective League:
CATS/KITTENS:
One young female with four kittens born on April 18
- mother is very loving and protective of her babies - was
found six weeks ago but owner couldn’t be located: the
lady that has them cannot keep any of them. The mother
has been given a home.
1-year-old female name Elsa: owner left area: not good
with dogs.
One 10-year old female: declawed and fixed: has never
been around other pets - owner left area.
We currently have no dogs or puppies to list.
For more information, please call Bobbie weekdays at
419-238-5447.
If you would like to volunteer to list the animals in the
media and receive the calls at your home: wish to make a
donation or have any other correspondence: our mailing
address is The APL, PO BOX 321, Van Wert OH 45891.
We do not have a shelter or any “foster” homes, so
please keep your pets until a new home is found!

Information submitted
VAN WERT — The Van Wert County Historical Society’s
August Night at the Museum class we will be held at 6:30 p.m.
Aug. 16 in the Museum Annex. The class will include both
needle felting and wet felting techniques.
Felting is the process of compressing and matting fibers
together to create a dense form and is one of the oldest known
fiber crafts. Thousands of years ago our ancestors felted wool
to create basic footwear, blankets, and clothing. Traditionally,
felt is made through a process called wet felting which requires
wool, hot water and soap. In this process the wool is placed
down in layers with the fibers running in alternate directions
and hot water and soap are added. The wool is then agitated;
the more it is agitated the tighter the final fabric. Wool fibers
have tiny scales that interlock during the felting process.
A modern twist to wet felting is needle felting. In this
form of felting, the fibers are tangled and compressed using a
felting needle, without the need for water or soap. The felting
needle was invented for industrial use in the 1950s when large
machines with thousands of needles started producing nonwoven fibers such as car carpets. The first use of the felting needle
for artistic purposes is reported to be in the early 1980s when
Eleanor Stanwood used a single needle and developed the craft
of needle felting. Other early pioneers of the craft are Ayala
Talpai of the USA and Birgitte Krag Hansen of Denmark, who
both wrote books and spread the word, rapidly increasing the
popularity of this growing craft.
To register, call Fran Neiswander at 419-749-2476. The cost
of this project is $25. The class size is limited, so register early.
The museum is located at 602 N. Washington St., Van Wert.

The country has become more divided.
Nobody feels the need to recognize or understand or even consider anyone else’s opinions.
People are now completely divided with the
belief that you either have to believe the way
they do or they hate you and think you are a
horrible evil idiot who can’t be trusted.
Really? It wasn’t always this way. Why
have we become so intolerant of other people’s viewpoints. I think social media has a lot
to do with it. It is easy to type some random
extreme post and suddenly you find people
liking you. The more extreme the better.
Suddenly you think these extremists views
are the norm so everybody else must be crazy.
I imagine people find it more interesting
to watch people fight than to watch them get
along. It is not, however, more productive.
We do not make ourselves, our country, or the
world better by finding out what divides us
and making the divisions wider. Wouldn’t it
be better to look at what we have in common
and try to draw people closer together?
We really are much more alike than we are
different. If we stopped trying to create barriers and started trying to create connections
we would live in a much safer and happier
place. For instance, the country is not really
separated between gun fanatics and pacifists.
The majority of Americans just want common
sense solutions. While I don’t own a gun, I
can accept that other people want to and I’m
fine with that. I also believe that most people
will agree that everybody doesn’t need to
own a gun. Certainly, even the most ardent
gun owner will agree that they have looked at
certain people and thought “you, should never
own a gun.” And that should be where the discussion begins: How do we keep guns away
from certain people? Don’t we want someone
on a terrorist watch list to have to “prove” he
is safe, rather than put an arbitrary timeline
on our officers to make them prove they are
not safe? Frankly, if somebody on the terrorist
watch list suddenly “needs” a gun within three
days, shouldn’t we all be concerned? What’s
the rush. Shouldn’t our first goal be to make
sure that the people buying the guns are buying them with good intentions?
It isn’t really the problems we have, it is
the fact that we need to find common ground.
We are intelligent human beings we have the
ability to see past the hate. We can’t allow
these extremists to hurl these flames of anger
and intolerance and make people believe that

it is either “us” or “them.” If we see people as
individuals instead of caricatures, we will see
they are just like us. Regardless of religion,
race, or country of origin, we are just people
trying to get by, live our lives and take care
of those we love. When we are at our best we
want to help others when they are struggling.
There are more good people than bad, so if we
are going to generalize can’t we try to look
for the good in each other instead of the bad?
We need to make sure that we don’t allow the
“bad apples” to drag us down to their level.
We are not a nation of haters. We can’t make
decisions based on anger. Hate begets hate,
anger begets anger. Nothing good will come
of it.
We can change this cycle only when we
decide that we will not allow extremists to
speak for us. I believe in common sense, I
believe in communication, I believe in cooperation. I do not want a government that is
controlled by name-calling, finger-pointing
and fighting. Anger cannot lead you to a place
of happiness, so why go there? If we destroy
each other with our anger, we do the job that
the terrorists couldn’t do.
We are a country of inclusion and unity,
known for our acceptance of different nationalities, religions and customs. We don’t shut
our doors and cower in the face of threats,
we don’t give up the moral integrity that has
always defined us. We stand up tall, face them
with dignity and say “this is who we are, this
is what we have always been, and no petty
tyrant will ever stop us from being the beacon
on the hill.”
We cannot draw battle lines between our
fellow citizens. We need them. We need them
all if we are to fight against those whose evil
intentions aim to destroy us. Our moral high
ground has always been that we believe in
unity, equality and justice for all. Don’t let a
moment of anger take away everything that
it is that makes us Americans. It is time to
stand together. We are really not as different
as some have made you believe.

Practical Money

10 tips for becoming a
knowledgeable renter
BY NATHANIEL SILLIN

On the hunt for a new apartment? A move
can be an exciting opportunity to explore a
new area or meet new people. However,
competitive rental markets can make it difficult to find a desirable place on a budget.
Keep these ten tips in mind to manage the process like a pro.
They’ll help you stand out
from the crowd, get a good
deal, enjoy the neighborhood
and manage your rights and
responsibilities as a renter.
1. Talk to Other Tenants.
Speak with current or past
renters to get a sense for
the building and landlord.
Ask about the neighborhood,
noise, timeliness with repairs
and any other pressing questions. Consider looking for
online reviews of the landlord as well, and research the
neighborhood.
2. Upgrade Your Application. Go beyond
the basic application requirements and
include pictures, references, credit reports
and a short bio about yourself and whoever
else may be moving in. Try to catch the
landlord’s eye and show that you’ll take
care of the property. You can order a free
credit report from each bureau (Equifax,
TransUnion and Experian) once every 12
months at AnnualCreditReport.com.
3. Understand Your Lease. The lease
may list the rent amount, terms of the security deposit, guest polices and other crucial
details. Read it carefully and ask questions
if you don’t understand something. State
laws regarding rent control or other regulations can impact your situation as well. If
you can afford one, you could hire a lawyer
to review and explain the lease.
4. Negotiate the Terms. You can’t always
negotiate lower rent (it’s worth trying), but
there may be flexibility when it comes to
the security deposit, parking spaces, administrative fees, or the lease’s length.
5. Learn Your Rights. Protect yourself by
learning about your rights as a renter. They
can vary by state, and the U.S. Department

communication and teamwork. The course
also includes resume writing and financial aid
application for students pursuing additional
training.
“Persons who successfully complete
the class will earn Basic certification in
the WCOMC’s Advanced Manufacturing
Pathway program and will be referred to
WCOMC members for employment consideration and receive weekly notices on employment opportunities, workshops, job fairs and
other events to enhance their chances for
employment,” said WCOMC Director Doug
Durliat. “Students who achieve certification
will also receive information on other certifications and degrees in our pathway program that they can pursue that give them the
training for the higher-skilled, higher-paying
manufacturing jobs.”
Interested persons may register by calling
the WCOMC at 419-995-8353 by Sept. 1.
For more information, contact Assistant
Director of Marketing & College Relations
Anne Coburn-Griffis at 419-995-8458.

of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
has a directory with links to tenants’ rights
websites for each state.
6. Do a Walkthrough. Walk through
the apartment with the landlord, look for
damages and document anything you find.
You’ll thank yourself later when you move
out and ask for your full security deposit
back.
7. Consider Renters
Insurance. Renters insurance
costs about $15 to $30 a
month for a policy that covers $50,000 worth of losses.
It reimburses you if your
belongings are stolen, damaged or destroyed by a covered cause, such as a fire.
The insurance also helps pay
for legal fees if, for instance,
someone sues after getting
injured at your home.
8. Make Your Own
Repairs. Prior to signing the
lease, ask if you can take on some of the
maintenance responsibilities in exchange
for reduced rent. You could offer to handle
and pay for basic upkeep, such as replacing lights or smoke detectors, and making
minor repairs.
9. Pay Attention to Bills. Evaluate which
bills you’ll pay in addition to the rent, such
as gas, heat, water, electricity, trash, Wi-Fi
or parking. A more expensive apartment that
includes these can save you money overall.
10. Talk to Your Landlord. Hiding financial trouble helps no one. Talk to your
landlord and ask for an extension if you
can’t make rent. Good tenants can be hard
to come by, and your landlord will likely
prefer open communication and a late check
to being left in the dark.
Bottom Line: Being an informed renter is
especially important in a competitive rental
market. Take simple steps to improve your
rental and money management skills and
you’ll benefit for years to come.

An omen of things Jefferson
to come for NFL?

Jim Metcalfe
Not a good way
to start the National
Football
League
season.
I understand that
the annual Hall of
Fame Game from
Canton is a glorified
scrimmage.
You
were
going to see Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his
Indianapolis counterpart, Andrew Luck, for maybe a series.
The preseason is to slowly get the starters ready and keep
them as healthy as possible for the grueling regular season —
because let’s face it; the veterans have been through this before
and know what they are doing — and give rookies, free agents
and other hangers-on the chance to make the roster or make an
impression for another team that might sign them should they
be released.
Still, enrolling six of the NFL’s former stars in its Hall is
a celebration of the game’s great past — without these men,
the game as we know it wouldn’t be — and seeing its game
canceled due to poor field conditions is kind of a slap in the
face to them.
Having the weather force a cancellation is one thing — we
all complain about it but we really can’t do anything about it
— but to have it cancelled due to the wrong paint or whatever
is unacceptable.
Yes, it is the Hall’s ultimate responsibility that this happened but truthfully, it’s the NFL that has egg on its face.
Let’s hope this isn’t an omen of things to come!!!
==========
Isn’t it amazing how training camp in the NFL has changed.
In the olden days, it was grueling.
Hey, football is a man’s game and you’d better be ready to
hit or be hit, especially when the pros had to go both ways; they
BETTER be in shape.
The Mike Ditkas and other old-guarders that played in the
50s and 60s would talk about how tough it was.
Watching some of the early practices at camps this summer
on ESPN, such as Carolina’s, it’s not nearly as harsh as it used
to be.
I don’t want to say it was a country club but it was definitely
not a hit-fest.
I understand that with all the — legitimate — concerns for
player safety that has become modern-day professional football (trickling down to the college and high school game as
well), practice routines have been forced to change.
After all, it’s hard to see the men, the heroes I watched as a
child, having to battle through what they do in their elder years,
even though they admit they were playing the game they loved
and would do so again
Tackling is limited, as are other parts of preparation that
teams used to do, in order to protect them as much as they can.
Perhaps that is part of trying to keep more and more of
these guys actually in the game and not on injured-reserve but
I think we all have seen that is has also affected the play as far
as missed tackles and other sloppy play, especially early on.
You do kind of wonder if the changes that have been made
are leading to the very things — injuries — that they are
designed to avoid.
Hmmm!
======
I missed it last week — long-time ESPN football guy
Tom Jackson announced his retirement and has elected to
spend more time with his family.
Good for him!
I remember him as a smallish outside linebacker for the
“Orange Crush” Denver Bronco defense of the 1970s and 80s.
I always appreciated his knowledge of the game and
insights, though I know everybody had an opinion on that.
Though I don’t know him personally — we’re not best buds
or anything! — I wish him well.

COLUMBUS GROVE — Travis
Gallmeier is beginning his ninth season
at the head of the Columbus Grove golf
program.
He brings back three letterwinners
from last fall’s 17-26 overall mark,
which included a third-place finish in
the Putnam County League and sixth
place in the Northwest Conference.
That team also ended up 11th in the

Division III Hawthorne Hills Sectional.
Back for another go-round are senior
number 1 Kyle Welty (47 strokes per
9 holes), senior second man Noah
Oglesbee (48) and sophomore four man
Jacob Oglesbee (50).
“This year, we return three of our
top six golfers from last season. We will
look to improve on our regular season
conference finishes and our tournament
finish,” Gallmeier said.
He has a total of eight newcomers expected to make an impact in
2016: senior Grant Schroeder, junior

Brooke Silver, sophomore Bryce King,
sophomore Gabe Verhoff, freshman
Zach Roberts, freshman Owen Macke,
freshman Austin Macke and classmate
Nathan Dunbar.
“We have a good group of athletes
that will push each other to improve
throughout the season. We are very
young and will need to have some people step up and help compete in both the
NWC and the PCL,” he added.
The Bulldogs began their season.

Numbers Game

40
The field size is in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series has dimin-

ished this season from 43 to 40 cars, but the distinction of finishing last remains just as painful. Sunday at Watkins Glen,
Jimmie Johnson learned that feeling for the first time. Thanks
to a multi-car crash, Johnson’s race ended on Lap 52 and was
scored in 40th. It was the first time in Johnson’s 529-race Cup
career that his No. 48 was scored last in the field at the end of
the race. Johnson, however, does have seven finishes of 41st or
42nd in his career.

Hamlin fills in the last gap in his résumé with road course win

Denny Hamlin admitted he
couldn’t drive his No. 11
to the limit Sunday at Watkins Glen thanks to wincing
back pain. Stomping on the
brake pedal or slamming the
steering left and right was
too much. Back spasms had
flared and Hamlin needed
smooth motions and finesse.
It was the perfect recipe.
Hamlin snuck to the lead on
a restart with 10 laps left in
Sunday’s Cheez-It 355 at the
New York road course and
held serve through the checkered flag to earn his first career road course win. He
did it less than two months
removed from missing the
final corner while leading in
NASCAR’s other road course
event at Sonoma Raceway.
That day, Hamlin handed the
win to Tony Stewart.
Now Hamlin has filled in his
personal résumé of winning
on every type of NASCAR
track, from road courses to
superspeedways.
“Sometimes you see guys
run up front in a road course.
You’re like, ‘Where did it
come from?’” Hamlin said.
“It happens once. But I really think that we’ve turned the
corner really with all of our
Toyota teams.”

Hamlin could barely walk
when he exited his car after blowing its rear tires in
a post-race victory burnout.
With a golf cart and some assistance, Hamlin made it to
Victory Lane long before his
No. 11 could arrive.
“No doubt if it was Friday
or Saturday, no question I
wouldn’t have turned one
lap (Sunday),” Hamlin said,
referring to pre-race practice
and qualifying. “It was by
far the worst conditions I’ve
ever had to drive in, over the
knees, anything else.”
Twice Hamlin has raced with
torn ligaments in his knee.
The unexpected back issues
at Watkins Glen, Hamlin said,
were a result of heavy traveling recently that had gotten in
the way of an exercise routine
that typically keeps his back
pain in check.
“He was in trouble. He said
it,” said Mike Wheeler, Hamlin’s crew chief. “It was like,
you know, not something you
really want to hear. You know
you got good cars, good teammates, track position to start.
But end of the day I know he
mans up when he needs to.”
Hamlin’s measured pace
proved to be the winning formula as incidents plagued the

News and Notes

RACING WORLD MOURNS Tragedy struck over the weekend when driver Bryan Clauson succumbed to injuries sustained during a dirt track crash in
northern Kansas. Clauson, 27, was leading the Belleville Midget Nationals
Saturday night when he lost control, flipped and then was struck by a trailing
car. He was airlifted from the track and pronounced dead Sunday evening.
Clauson had quickly become one of the most dominant forces in dirt track
racing and was in pursuit of racing 200 times this season. Already fifth on
the all-time USAC win chart, Clauson had 27 feature victories this season in
addition to a 23rd-place finish in May’s Indianapolis 500. Clauson returned to
dominate the dirt racing scene after a brief run in NASCAR’s XFINITY Series
and the ARCA Racing Series with Chip Ganassi Racing in 2007 and 2008. He
was a four-time USAC national champion.

final half of Sunday’s race.
His move to take the lead
was made possible by two
drivers in front of him (Brad
Keselowski and teammate
Kyle Busch) making contact
and pushing wide in the sharp
right-hand Turn 1 after a restart. Hamlin easily slipped
by and found enough room to
play defense.
“I gave up a little bit on corner entry to make sure that I
hit my marks,” Hamlin said.
“It was my job to make them
make a move on me, instead
of, don’t overshoot the corner and just open the door
for them. Make them make
an aggressive move to pass
you.”
The proceedings did turn aggressive behind Hamlin on
the final lap as Martin Truex
Jr. and Keselowski tried to
close. In the final corner, contact from Keselowski spun
Truex while Hamlin drove
away.
“I think being a little defensive on those final couple
laps, making sure I didn’t
pull a Sonoma — it allowed
them to get a little closer
than where I was comfortable
with,” Hamlin said.
Joey Logano pulled ahead of

Keselowski before the finish
line, while AJ Allmendinger,
Tony Stewart and Kyle Busch took advantage of Truex’s
slide. Keselowski apologized
to Truex after the race for
the incident. Apologies also
came from Allmendinger after he turned Kyle Larson into
the inside wall at the same
corner. Larson was looking
at a top-5 finish before taking
29th.
“He has ran me hard, but we
always race pretty well. But
today was flat-out stupid,”
Larson said. “I love his crew
chief (Randall Burnett) to
death; he was our engineer
last year. It just sucks they are
going to have to start building
some more race cars because
he has got a few coming.”
For Hamlin, the win is a nice
exclamation point on his return to form after the Daytona 500 winner spent much
of NASCAR’s regular season
falling in the point standings.
He dropped as low as 13th in
June before stabilizing. After Watkins Glen, Hamlin is
seventh in the standings and
riding a streak of four straight
top-10 finishes, and he’s one
of six drivers with two or
more wins this season.

GETTING HIS SHOT After one race substituting for the injured Kyle Busch and two for the suspended Matt Kenseth last season, Erik Jones will move
full-time to Cup in 2017 as part of an expansion of Furniture Row Racing. The
move was announced at Watkins Glen and included a heavy presence from
Jones’ new primary sponsor 5-Hour Energy. The drink manufacturer is leaving Clint Bowyer after this season and hopping aboard the new FRR No. 77
Toyota. Jones, 20, has five career XFINITY Series wins and seven Camping
World Truck Series wins. The new FRR team will operate identically to that of
Jones’ new teammate Martin Truex Jr. with a very tight technical relationship
with Joe Gibbs Racing. Jones is expected to begin 2017 as a chartered entrant,
but FRR has yet to complete a transaction with a current charter team to take
over those rights.

ARIES
Mar 21/Apr 20
It may take a little
extra effort to solve
a particularly puzzling problem this
week, Aries. It’s not
an insurmountable
obstacle, just one that
takes patience.

Jul 23/Aug 23
Leo, an unconventional approach to
a problem may see
things fall into place.
While others are
following one path,
you’ll be marching to
the beat of a different
drummer.

Ph. 419-339-4938 TAURUS
21/May 21
or 419-230-8128 Apr
Taurus, all of your

efforts thus far in
LAWN, GARDEN, relation to personal
665
LANDSCAPING challenges have been
well worth the sacrifices you have made.
Keep doing what you
are doing.

VIRGO
Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, it’s time to
get your head out of
the clouds for a little
bit. Focus on the priorities in your life,
which may include
family and work responsibilities.

GEMINI
May 22/Jun 21
Gemini, you cannot
control the actions of
others all of the time,
but you can change
the way you react
to certain situations.
Take time to develop
a response.

LIBRA
Sept 23/Oct 23
Friends may prove a
distraction this week,
Libra. It will take a
lot of energy to focus
on what you need to
accomplish
rather
than getting sucked
into other plans.

CANCER
Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, you will have
to adapt when your
schedule gets turned
upside down. Let
others see how capable you are by modifying the situation as
needed.

SCORPIO
Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio, adjusting to
a changing situation
at work will require
some patience and
trial and error. Keep
your head down because you will grow
comfortable before
you know it.

Good Vibrations
By Ed Clark

The music that moves us ...

That Motown Sound
As many know Motown Records was
founded by Berry Gordy and became the
pulse of American pop music from 19591972. Established in Detroit, Michigan, this
Motown sound is defined as “an upbeat, often
pop-influenced style of
rhythm and blues associated with the city of
Detroit and with numerous black vocalists and
vocal groups since the
1950s and characterized
by compact, danceable
arrangements.” (dictionary.com).
It
seemed
the
Motown sound was anywhere and everywhere
through the 60s, 70s and
into the 80s. The movie soundtrack for “The
Big Chill” (1983) is chock full of Motown
hits coaxing the familiar sentiment: “I’d watch
that movie for the soundtrack.” Motown music
continues as a staple of most every “Oldies”
radio station today. The pick-you-up, makeyou-want-to-move sound has staying power
on the ears.
A look at a few No. 1 Motown sounds.
1960s
1961 “Please Mr. Postman” The Marvelettes
1964 “My Guy” Mary Wells
1965 “My Girl” The Temptations
1966 “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” The

Blue Lunch brings smooth sound to Stadium Park
Blue Lunch from Cleveland brought its doo-wop and jazz to Stadium Park Sunday evening for August’s
first Delphos Rotary Club’s Music in the Park Series offering. The final concert of the season is the Nashville
Songwriter’s Showcase at 6 p.m. on Aug. 21 and will feature several local artists who split their time writing music
for Nashville and have local ties to the community. Plan to hear original music performed by the artists’ acoustic
style and unplugged as the Rotary presents the talent of local musicians. Food and refreshments are available at
5:30 p.m. (DHI Media/Nancy Spencer)

School
(Continued from page 1)
Milk and bread bids for the district’s
cafeterias were opened. Reiter Dairy
submitted lowest bids for milk at 18
cents for fat-free chocolate and strawberry and 17.5 cents for fat-free white.
Arps and Prairie Farms also submitted
bids.
Aunt Millie’s Bakery submitted the
lowest bids for bread products at $1.35
for a loaf of white bread; $1.31 for
sandwich bread; $1.38 for a package
of 4-inch buns; $1.34 for a package of
3.5-inch buns; and $2.24 for a package
of rolls.
While discussing the milk and bread
bids, Treasurer Brad Rostorfer noted the
district did not increase lunch prices last
school year and will more than likely
increase them 10 cents across the board

Vaccines

for the upcoming school year, following federal guidelines for what school
lunches should cost. Under the mandate,
students’ lunches at schools with freeand reduced-lunch students must have
a weighted average of $2.70. If not, the
district must raise prices 10 cents per
year until they reach the average.
The board also approved some staffing changes. Bill Langely resigned as
high school Spanish teacher and was
replaced by Brent Hawk with a 2-year
contract. Julie Arroyo was also hired as
a 2-hour cook for the middle school.
Supplemental contracts for Tiffany
Culp, seventh-grade volleyball coach;
Shane Gallmeier, junior varsity golf
coach; Mike Wilson, head wrestling
coach; and Stephanie Braun, co-prom
advisor, were approved.
The board also accepted a $847.50

(Continued from page 1)

“With all of the social media hype, people are
afraid to vaccinate. However, there is scientific
evidence that vaccines are safe,” Haas said. “By
not vaccinating your child for the age-appropriate
vaccines, you are not only endangering their life but
also those who are too young or medically fragile to
receive the vaccines.”
Haas says the season is getting very busy, so it
is important to get vaccinations scheduled as soon
as possible.
“They can call us at 419-238-0808, ext. 103 or
107, to schedule.” she said. “Although we have
added extra clinics to help with the back-to-school
rush, we are currently scheduling in September.
Therefore, it is important for the parents to call right
away before those clinics are full. The school can
also exclude students for not being current on the
required vaccines for school entry.”
Beginning with the fall 2016 school year, a new
meningococcal vaccine requirement takes effect
under Ohio Law. All incoming seventh-graders
must have one dose of the meningococcal vaccine

donation from the Van Wert County
Foundation Klein Fund.
Last Thursday, the Finance Committee
toured the district on one of the newer
buses and looked at the bus garage for
possible expansion and needed upkeep.
The newer buses are longer. The district
will take possession of two new buses
hopefully in December. The 66-passenger
buses were purchased for $163,492 from
Thomas Built. Two older buses in the
fleet and one won by the district in a pill
drawing held at Marimor Schools were
