Fort Fest brings community, area together

DELPHOS — People near and far continue
to support Fort Fest, the main fundraiser for the
Fort Jennings Park Committee. Intermittent rain
showers on Saturday didn’t lessen the crowd.

“We just made some small adjustments
and everyone packed in under the tents and
we just kept going,” Fort Fest co-coordinator
Jerry Siefker said. “It actually helped with
our raffles because everyone was in one
place and we got a lot more volunteers.”
Thousands flocked to the small village
for a weekend of food, free entertainment, a

taste of life in 1812, historical military displays and more during the three-day festival.
A staple of the event is a Huey helicopter
that opens the event with a fly-in leading
iconic military displays to the celebration like
the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier display
and this year, the traveling Vietnam Wall.
The wall was displayed at Fort Jennings

Park and it took a massive effort to prepare
the area including landscaping and lighting. The Wall is a 3/5 scale of the Vietnam
Memorial in Washington, D.C., and stands
six feet tall at the center and covers almost
300 feet from end to end.

Delphos City Schools go smoke-free
Information submitted

DELPHOS — It’s the start of the new school
year and Delphos City Schools has implemented a
new tobacco-free policy to create a more positive,
healthy environment for students. The new policy
prohibits all students, staff, volunteers and visitors
from possessing or using any tobacco products
(including electronic cigarettes of any kind) in any
building, facility, or vehicle owned or leased and
on school grounds, athletic grounds and parking
lots.
Delphos Jefferson joins other schools in the county
who have adopted a Tobacco-Free Schools policy.
“The Delphos City Schools are pleased to partner
with the Allen County Public Health, Delphos St.
John’s and the City of Delphos in providing a healthy
smoke- and tobacco-free campus and look forward in
helping promote healthy alternatives in the Delphos
Community,” Delphos City Schools Superintendent

Kevin Wolfe said.
State law prohibits smoking inside school buildings, but surrounding campuses are not automatically
smoke-free areas. Delphos Jefferson instituted the
policy because school staff members and visitors
serve as role models to students at a time when they
are making choices about tobacco for themselves.
The new policy will:
• Provide a safe, healthy and tobacco-free environment;
• Ensure compliance with state laws that limit
access to tobacco by minors;
• Protect students with illnesses that are worsened
by secondhand smoke, such as asthma;
• Prepare students for the reality of tobacco-free
workplaces and communities;
• Reduce school maintenance costs; and,
• Reduce the risk of fires.

glimpses of the possibilities
Tuesday night in the seasonopener, crushing a young

Lady Wildcats open soccer
season with 10-goal outburst
BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — The Van Wert girls soccer
team took an early lead in its contest versus
Jefferson Monday night at the St. John’s
Annex.
After that, it was all Wildcats as they pummelled the Lady Cougars 10-1 in non-conference action.
The Cougars (0-2-0) grabbed an early lead
at 36:10 as junior captain Cassidy Meyers
launched a shot from near the goal line on
the right side toward the goal. It floated over
sophomore goalkeeper Ally Hastings and she
deflected it into the goal for a 1-0 tally.
The Wildcats, in their season-opener, finally tied it at 28:15 as sophomore Maddie
McConnahea led senior Arianna Knebel for
a 17-yarder on the left post that deflected off
junior goalkeeper Camryn Nouza’s (5 saves
versus 17 shots on-goal) hands and into the
goal.
That just opened up the floodgates.
Knebel returned the favor to McConnahea,
as she delivered a shot from the top of the box
for a 2-1 edge at 27:42 of the first half.
At 21:52, junior Kendall Marquiss led
Knebel through the defense and with the
keeper out, the Wildcat senior fired a 16-yarder into the open goal for a 3-1 edge.
At 18:43, McConnahea made a great individual move down the left side, veered toward
the goal and beat the netminder from six yards
for a 4-1 edge.
At 9:18 of the opening half, it became
5-1. With junior Devyn Carder feeding
McConnahea on the left post, the senior
delivered an 18-yarder over the top for a 5-1
advantage.
At 6:16, it became 6-1. Knebel made a
great run from midfield, veering through
defenders from the right side to the left post,
where she launched a successful shot from the
left post that found its mark.
At 37:27 of the second half, Carder fed

Knebel for a successful 22-yarder over the top
of the goalkeeper for a 7-1 edge.
That also began a running clock with a
6-goal advantage.
Marquiss had the next two Wildcat goals.
At 36:05, senior Addison Schimmoeller
assisted Marquiss for a 19-yarder from the
right side inside the left post for an 8-1 advantage.
At 24:45, Marquiss took a goal kick steal
and deposited it in the twine for a 9-1 lead.
At 8:30, junior Brooke Rice fed Knebel for
the 10th goal.
“We got off to a slow start; we knew Van
Wert would come out quickly and they did
with the first goal. As I told the girls at half,
good teams respond in those situations and we
did,” Jefferson coach Josiah Stober explained.
“After we got behind, we did a good job of
possessing and passing the ball and moving
without it. We did a nice job of using the entire
width of the field and then letting Arianna and
Maddie have open spaces. The only concern
is injury: we have several girls that either
had to leave the game and not return (junior
Sierra Marlow left at 10:24 of the first half
and didn’t come back) or were banged up. We
have to hope they aren’t serious because we
only had four subs at the start.”
For Van Wert coach Rich Nouza, he is trying to build with a young team.
“This was our second game of the season,
both losses. We’ve got a very young team and
not necessarily a lot of experience,” he added.
“Even though we trailed 10-1 at the half, I
wasn’t disappointed; we had done a lot of
good things and gave ourselves some opportunities to score. One difference between our
youth and their experience is they have finishers, like McConnahea and Knebel, and we
don’t. Those are two very talented players in
the middle. The second half, we let it get away
from us. Overall, this is a learning experience
and we have to take advantage of those.”
Both teams returned to the pitch on
Thursday: Jefferson is at Ottoville at 5 p.m.
and Van Wert hosting Paulding.

The Olympics; are they
not what they used to be?

The 2016 Summer Olympics from Rio are done
Jim Metcalfe
and over and the world can look to Japan for 2020 and
the next Olympiad.
I will be one to admit that I don’t get into the
Olympics as much as I did when I was younger.
I can remember the 1976 Summer Olympics in
Montreal and the great boxing that went on, for an
example.
They were the best the amateur world had to offer
and it was something to behold; you could really get
behind them because they were “us”.
United States competitors had to work for a living, as well as train their hearts out to get
there at the same time, and maybe they didn’t do as well as their professional competitors.
I am sure the US Olympic Committee and other sponsors did what they could within the
rules but they couldn’t do a lot and have those athletes remain amateurs.
Unfortunately, that had to change to be competitive because to the USSR and Red China,
there were no such thing as amateurs; they were professionals, even in the Red Army, and that
is all they did.
Big difference.
I know it had to change and the Olympics ceased being for amateurs but in that needed alteration, maybe something else was sacrificed; the pure love of the sport, the camaraderie, the joy.
Not that professionals can’t have any of that — I think they do because that’s what it took
for them to get to the payday before they became household names — but it seems when you
put money on the table, it changes things; it becomes a job, agents and lawyers get involved
and the average guy and gal can kind of lose touch.
Not every pro is an arrogant snot but it seems too many of them are becoming that way.
They forget where they came from, that they haven’t always been looked up to, cheered on,
sought after.
Again, not all of our professional athletes are that way but it’s so much different when a
professional athlete had to actually have an off-season job.
They understood what it took to go to a ball game with a family of four, six or eight (think
40-plus years ago!) and also pay the bills; everybody couldn’t watch the games through the
peepholes in the fences!
You can think that these athletes deserve all they get — hey, if the owners are gonna give
them lots of moolah, they’d be crazy not to take it! — but at the same time, you wish they could
realize that not all of us are so blessed.

MIDDLE POINT —
Neither host Lincolnview
nor Spencerville had much
depth for their Northwest
Conference boys soccer
matchup on a brilliant but
relatively mild Monday afternoon at Lincolnview High
School.
The Lancers had two subs,
while the Bearcats had three.
Thus, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the teams had battled
to a 1-1 draw.
The Lancers (0-0-1, 0-0-1
NWC), in their season-opener, had the first good look at
34:11 when sophomore Kyle
Wallis fired from near the
right end line, hit the near
post and went out of bounds
against sophomore keeper
Jacob Litsey (12 saves versus
15 shots on-goal).

The Bearcats (1-0-1, 0-0-1
NWC) got the lead at 31:30.
Senior Justin Thiery got a
nice look on the left wing
and found the inside of that
post from 15 yards against
sophomore netminder Ethan
Kemper (6 saves vs. 8 shots
on-goal) for a 1-0 edge.
Wallis tried for the equalizer at 31:12 but his top of
the box laser was denied by
the keeper.
Shortly after, Thiery got
loose on the left side but
this time, his 15-yarder was
stopped.
Sophomore
Ethan
Swallow began to be a thorn
in the Spencerville defensive
neck as he fired from the
top of the arc at 28:10 and
at 27:52 but both times was
turned back.
At 22:42, Swallow tied
it up. He launched a floater
from near the right corner
that floated over the top, hit

the left post and ricocheted in
for a 1-1 tie.
From then on, the Lancers
had the better of the proceedings as Swallow and fellow
sophomore Jarred Pollock
owned the center of the pitch
but their shots were either off
or denied.
Their best chance to take
the lead came at 11:25 when
Swallow got loose on the left
side and his looper over the
keeper hit the far post but ricocheted away and eventually
cleared.
On the sequence, Litsey
collided with Wallis and had
to briefly leave the match.
Spencerville had an effort
from junior Gage Bellows at
18:53 but was turned away by
Kemper.
Shortly before the firsthalf horn, senior Chandler
Kahle fired from 30 yards but
was over the crossbar.

VAN WERT — Ottoville
junior Megan Burgei scored
three first-half goals as the
Lady Green opened the
21016 soccer season with
a 5-1 win at Van Wert on
Saturday afternoon.
With a stiff wind in their
favor, the Lady Green dominated play in the opening
40 minutes, out-shooting Van
Wert 23-3, including 12-2 in
shots on goal. Cougar keeper
Camryn Nouza saved four
of those shots, and one other

careened off the post, but the
constant pressure applied by
Tim Kimmet’s crew had the
Lady Cougars reeling.
“That’s what I want them
to do; they’ve got to go after
the net and put the defense on
their heels - that’s my gameplan this season because we
have some speed,” Kimmet
said of his team’s fire-at-will
strategdy early on.
In the second half, with
Van Wert now playing with
the wind at its back, the
tables turned slightly. After
some initial pressure by the
Lady Green, the Cougars
routinely made runs at the
Ottoville goal. Junior Cassidy

Meyers missed just wide in
the 49th minute, then had
back-to-back tries over the
next five minutes of play.
Dekota Thomas and Sydney
Maller each also had scoring
tries for the Cougars, who
out-shot Ottoville 9-8 in the
second half, including 7-5 on
goal, but each time, Ottoville
keeper Brittany Winhover
was up to the task.
“In the second half, we had
the wind and it proved to be
a little bit of an advantage for
us; we got a lot more shots on
goal,” Van Wert head coach
Rich Nouza said. “
The Lady Cougars finally
broke through in the 89th

minute, when sophomore
Olivia Davidson sent a cross
into the box which found the
foot of freshman Kaylena
Kelly. Kelly, in traffic, was
able to slip one past Winhover
for the 5-1 final.
“It was nice to get one
in the goal there, I’m happy
about that,” Nouza said. “I
thought we played well; I
told the girls at halftime,
‘let’s forget about he first
half and win the second half.’
We did that.”
“We have low numbers
this year, and I think fatigue
got to us at the end,” Kimmet
said. “We had the wind early
and it worked out for us,
but Van Wert is improving;
I think they’ll have a lot of
good games this year.”
Ottoville’s first score
came on an own goal less
than two minutes into the
game. Burgei then connected
on a trio of shots - each one
longer the the one before it to put the game out of reach.
Ottoville’s Amber Miller
made it 5-0 when she connected from inside the 5-yard
zone off a Big Green corner
kick.
For the game, Ottoville
took 30 shots, including 17
on goal and had seven corner kicks. Van Wert finished
with 12 shots, nine on goal,
and three corner kicks. Nouza
had 11 saves for the Cougars
while Winhover saved eight
for Ottoville.

on Thursday evening.

Lady Cavaliers belt Jays in WOSL soccer
By JEFF CUSTER
DHI Media Correspondent

COLDWATER — The Delphos St.
John’s Girls Varsity soccer team, led by
Head Coach Katrina Smith, traveled to
Cavalier Stadium in Coldwater Tuesday
evening for their first game of the season.
For the first 10 minutes of the game,
the ball control was even for both teams
as they seemed to get a feel for each
other and the field.
However, at 10 minutes, 23 seconds
into the game, Coldwater struck first in
taking a 1-0 lead and went on to an 8-3
victory in Western Ohio Soccer League
action.
Within the next four minutes of the
game, their lead would swell up to 3-0.
Delphos sophomore Hayleigh
Bacome nearly answered Coldwater’s
initial goal with a shot on-goal that went

sailing closely over the crossbar.
The girls from Delphos St. John’s
finally answered Coldwater’s three consecutive goals at the 23-minute mark
with a goal from sophomore Halle Hays
off a cross from Bacome.
Several minutes following their first
goal, Delphos was called for a handball
that gave Coldwater a direct kick which
extended the score to 4-1.
Upon conclusion of the first half, the
Coldwater girls were up 5-1 on Delphos.
Overall, several of Coldwater’s firsthalf goals were set up by what Coach
Smith called “defensive breakdowns”.
It seemed consistent that Coldwater’s
attackers were getting behind the backline of the Delphos defense, leading to
1-on-1 opportunities for them with only
Kristina Koester, Delphos’s senior goalkeeper, to stop them. A difficult task it
was for Koester but into the second half,
her performance improved mightily as
she began to come farther from goal and

Draw

(Continued from page 6)

Both units had opportunities to take the lead in the second
half but the keepers were up to the task.
The best chances the Lancers had came at 21:54, when
Swallow fired from 10 yards on the left wing but was deflected
away by the keeper; at 7:30, when Swallow got a chance from
the middle of the arc but the shot was at first deflected and then
controlled by Litsey; and at 1:27, when a Wallis laser from the
top of the arc was gobbled up.
The Bearcats — seemingly getting stronger as the half wore
on — either couldn’t find the frame — especially with Thiery
getting some looks behind the defense on the left side — or
Kemler came up big.
Their top chances in the second half came at 37:50, when
Kemler deflected a 20-yard direct kick from the right wing by
Kahle; at 13:02, when Thiery — off a lead pass from senior
Keith Nielsen — maneuvered from the left wing to the center, juking the keeper off his feet, only to see junior defender
Braxten Roby deny the in-close effort; and at 4:08, when Kahle
stole a goal kick and got it to Thiery in the middle of the box
but the effort was wide left.
The last scoring effort of the match came with 10 ticks to
go, when Swallow fired from the top of the box on the right
post but Litsey was true.
“I was pleased with what I saw today; I wasn’t sure what
to expect with replacing nine seniors but I was optimistic,”
Lincolnview head coach Anson Moody explained. “We did
a lot of good things, especially with Ethan (Swallow), Kyle
and Jarred in the middle; they have great chemistry together
and Ethan is our Austin (Leeth) from last year — an attacking
midfielder. With so many young kids, though, we have to learn
not to depend on one guy but all 11 we have out there, as well
as use the entire field instead of just one side.”
Spencerville head man Andy Wisher also liked what he saw.
“We didn’t have some fair kids today, so we had to have
youngsters step up. They did well,” he added. “I thought we
did a much better job the second half of containing there very
good players in Swallow, Wallis and Pollock, whereas in the
first half we didn’t. I also felt we were better conditioned — we
work a lot on that. I’ll take a tie in this game but we have a lot
of work to do and we’ll see them again later in the season in the
Western Ohio Soccer League game (Sept. 12 at Spencerville).”

versus New Knoxville; Lincolnview is also in WOSL action

Lady Lancers get season-opening volleyball win over Van Wert
BY JOHN PARENT
DHI Media Regional
Sports Editor
jparent@timesbulletin.com

MIDDLE POINT —
Tuesday night’s season-opening match between Van Wert
and Lincolnview had all the
features normally found in a
5-setter.
Both teams built leads and
saw them vanish and both
teams fought back when it
looked like all was lost.
In the end, the host Lady
Lancers came from a 4-0
deficit in the fifth set to win
the set and the match, 21-25,
25-22, 25-17, 17-25, 15-13.
“I just told them they need-

ed to re-focus, they need to
respond on serve-receive and
set for the kill,” Lady Lancer
head coach JaNahn Evans
said.”I thought we responded
well in situations where we
needed to. We’re just going
to keep doing that.”
After Laine Spoor served
an ace to open the fifth and
teammate Ella Butler stuffed
a ball at the net, Van Wert
led 4-0 in the fifth. With the
deciding set only a race to
15, those kinds of early leads
can be hard to overcome.
Lincolnview, with some
help from the Cougars, did
just that. The Lady Lancers
claimed each of the next
five points, with a block by

Lancer senior Katlyn Wendel
and a blast from Alana
Williams highlighting the
run which also featured three
Lady Cougar errors.
“We gave them five
straight points,” Cougar
head coach Jeff Marbaugh
said. “We made five straight
ball-handling mistakes that
gave them those points. We
battled back - we made it a
1-point game back-and-forth
- there were just a few plays
we’ve got to make at the
end.”
The early set was largely controlled by the Lady
Cougars, who built a 12-5
lead thanks to some big
hits from Emma Kohn and

Peyton Fleming at the net.
Lincolnview fought back to
pull to within two, but Van
Wert responded and got the
lead back to a comfortable
7-point edge twice before settling on the 4-point set win.
In the second, the Cougars
led by as many as five at 15-10
and looked like they would
pull away, but Lincolnview
came from behind to knot
the set at 16-16 on MaKenna
Klausing’s blast from the left
side. Klausing later served
an ace to put the Lancers
up by two, forcing a Cougar
timeout, but two straight Van
Wert errors out of the break
put the set out of reach.
“Every team is going to

answer back,” Marbaugh
said. “They are all going to
fight hard until the end. We
just have to learn how to
move on a little bit quicker;
I think sometimes you play
in the past instead of going
ahead and making the next
play.
“I think we just sort of lost
that focus, and we weren’t
thinking about the positive
things we did in the first set.”
Both teams fell into some
sloppy play in the third set,
which was controlled mostly
by Lincolnview. The Lady
Lancers went up by five on
Kaitlyn Brenneman’s crosscourt blast to make it 9-4,
Lancers, and the margin

never got smalled than six
the rest of the way.
“We lost focus in the second, the third and halfway
through the fourth, but we
fought back,” Marbaugh said.
The Lancers led the fourth
set at 7-6 before the Cougars
answered with five straight
points to take control.
“Van Wert is a great team;
a lot of our hits should have
been kills and they really dug
the ball well, played the net
well and were a hard team to
dig off of,” Evans said.
“Give Lincolnview a lot
of credit,” Marbaugh said.
“They just kept playing hard
and battling like they do
every year.”

Good Vibrations
By Ed Clark

The music that moves us ...

Motor cars and music

Can you recall, a make-you-smile memory perhaps,
the first drive in your parents car by yourself? Remembering that ink-on-my-license-not-yet-dry feeling
of incredible driving freedom. Early on in this driving
age of discovery, you also realized how well your car
and your radio got along. With AM radio presets for
CKLW and WOWO, it seemed you had everything
required for an enjoyable journey. A look back at a
few pop music songs connected to cars:
(“Little Deuce Coupe” The Beach Boys No. 15
1963)
“And comin’ off the line when the light turns green,
Well she blows ‘em outta the water like you never
seen,
I get pushed out of shape and it’s hard to steer,
When I get rubber in all four gears,
She’s my little deuce coupe,
You don’t know what I got”
(“Mustang Sally” Wilson Pickett No. 23 1966)
“Mustang Sally, think you better slow your mustang
down,
Mustang Sally, think you better slow your mustang
down”
(“American Pie” Don McClean No. 1 1971)
“Bye, bye Miss American Pie,
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry”
(“Hot Rod Lincoln” Commander Cody And His
Lost Planet Airman No. 9 1971)
“My pappy said, “Son, you’re gonna’ drive me to
drinkin’,
If you don’t stop drivin’ that Hot Rod Lincoln.”
(“Car Wash” Rose Royce No. 1 1976)
“Some of the work gets kinda hard,
This ain’t no place to be if you planned on bein’ a
star,

WebDonuts

Let me tell you it’s always cool,
And the boss don’t mind sometimes if you act the
fool”
(“Cars” Gary Numan No. 9 1979)
“Here in my car,
Where the image breaks down,
Will you visit me please,
If I open my door in cars”
(“Drive” The Cars No. 3 1984)
“You can’t go on,
Thinking nothing’s wrong,
Who’s gonna drive you home tonight”
“The Cars performed this on Saturday Night Live
on May 12, 1984”. (songfacts.com)
(“Life Is A Highway” Tom Cochrane No. 6 1992)
“Life is a highway,
I want to ride it all night long,
If you’re going my way,
I want to drive it all night long”
(“Somethin’ “Bout A Truck” Kip Moore No. 1
Country Hit 2011)
“Somethin’ bout a truck in a farmers field
A no trespass sign, and time to kill
Nobody’s gonna get hurt, so what’s the big deal
Somethin’ bout a truck in a farmer’s field”
With the fine quality of stereo systems in cars today,
you can enjoy “music therapy” in your day-to-day
driving. Maybe get lucky and hear three or four of
your favorites back to back.
Good Vibrations.

Six ways to save on
your next car
BY NATHANIEL SILLIN

Looking for an eco-friendly subcompact or the
thrills that come with a sports car? Perhaps the
practicality of a sedan or a spacious SUV better
fits your needs? No matter what type of vehicle
is calling your name, planning your purchase can
help you save as much money as
possible.
Consider these six savings tips
while shopping for your next car.
Whether you’re concerned about
upfront, monthly or long-term
costs, there’s something here that
can help you.
1. Look for a fuel-efficient car.
Buying a hybrid or all-electric vehicle rather than a gas guzzler could
help you save money on long-run
fuel costs. Plus, state and federal tax
credits might give you some additional upfront savings.
If you’re sticking to a fully gas-powered car,
you can still save money by choosing a fuel-efficient model. Once you pick a class of car and
determine your budget, use the Environmental
Protection Agency’s miles-per-gallon rating for
each vehicle to estimate and compare the monthly
fuel costs.
2. Compare the long-term costs of different
cars. In addition to fuel, consider the long-term
costs of maintenance, repairs, insurance, taxes,
depreciation, fees and financing.
To help you with the calculations, Kelly Blue
Book has a 5-Year Cost to Own tool that lets you
compare long-term costs for 2015 and 2016 models. Edmunds’s True Cost to Own® tool does a
similar thing for 2010 and newer models.
3. Buy a “new-to-you” car. Buying a used car
rather than the equivalent brand-new model can
usually save you money. However, you’ll want to
look at each used car on an individual basis. Consider how it feels during a test drive and its history
if you can access it.
You may be able to buy a warranty for your
used car, or you could purchase a certified preowned (CPO) car from a dealership. Dealers inspect CPOs before selling them with a manufacturer’s warranty. If you’re not buying a CPO, you
could hire a mechanic to perform a pre-purchase
inspection. It’s not a guarantee, but the inspection
can help ensure you won’t get caught off guard by
any unexpected issues.
With the right deal on a used car, you might be
able to buy the car outright instead of financing
the purchase. By paying cash, you avoid accruing
interest, making monthly payments and worrying
about loan-origination fees.
4. Negotiate the purchase. Most people don’t
enjoy haggling with a car salesperson, but even
non-confrontational negotiating tactics can help
you save money.

Relax AND Save!

Do you or a loved one STRUGGLE on the stairs?
We have the AFFORDABLE solution!

For example, once you pick a make and model, you could shop online for available vehicles
at nearby dealerships. Reach out to each dealer’s
internet sales team and ask for their best total cost,
inclusive of taxes and fees.
Take the lowest offer and ask the other dealers
if they can beat it. If one of them can, take your
new lowest quote and again ask the
rest of the dealers to go lower. Keep
going until you get a price that works
best for you.
You could use the same tactic with
dealerships outside your area. However, you may have to travel and pick
up the car or pay to transport it.
Another helpful resource is negotiation services like Authority Auto,
which negotiates competitive prices on new and pre-owned cars. For
a fee, the online service negotiates
each part of the process to get you a
better deal and take some of the stress out of the
car-buying experience and only charge a percentage of what they save you.
5. Consider leasing instead of purchasing. Taking out a lease is similar to purchasing a long-term
rental. You’ll have to return or buy the car at the
end of the lease, and you may have to pay fees if
you drive too many miles or damage the vehicle.
The lease down payment and monthly payments will be lower than buying the same car
outright. However, you can still save money by
shopping around and negotiating because the
down payment and monthly payments depend on
the vehicle’s sale price.
If you like to drive a new car and always want
to be under warranty, starting a new lease every
few years could make sense. On the other hand,
there’s more long-term value in buying if you tend
to have a lot of wear and tear on your cars.
6. Use alternative means of transportation. Forgoing the purchase of a car altogether might not
work for everyone, but it’s worth considering if
you live in a city or don’t regularly drive long
distances. Instead of owning a car, you could get
around with a mix of carpooling, public transportation, walking and biking. You could also still
have access to a car if you join a car-sharing program or use a ride-sharing app or taxi service.
Bottom line: There are many ways to save
money on your next car, and you should almost
certainly plan your purchase before signing any
dotted lines. Start by researching all your options,
including living without a car, buying used and
leasing. If you decide to purchase a car, you can
compare the long-term cost of different makes
and models and save money upfront by haggling
with sellers.

of the amount of names on
the wall,” Siefker said. “Wes
Klir was the one who secured
the Wall for us. He and I
work together on the event.
We’re already working on
next year.”
Volunteers manned a station by the Wall with books

“I want to thank everyone

us put this together and all
the businesses and individuals who donate their time, talent and funds for the event,”
Siefker said. “We manage it
well. We have a very unique
event with free entertainment, live music, food, vendors, duck races, a car show,
a Huey helicopter and I could

The Allen County Creating Healthy Communities Program urges administrators at all Allen
County schools to consider the impact a campus-wide tobacco-free policy would have on the
health and safety of its students.
“Most life-long smokers start before the age of 18. A tobacco-free campus is one way to
model healthy behaviors and encourage a tobacco-free lifestyle with our children,” Allen
County Public Health Health Educator Shelly Miller said.
