City receives grant
for fire truck
BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS —Fire Chief Kevin Streets has made it possible for the city to purchase a brand new fire truck for the
low cost of $19,095. Streets submitted a grant application to
the US Department of Homeland Security and on Tuesday,
council learned the city had received $381,905.
The grant and the city’s 5-percent match will purchase the
fire truck and equipment will be repurposed from the older
fire truck that will be retired.
“We really need to send out props to Kevin for securing
this grant that allows us to upgrade to new equipment at so
little cost,” Safety Service Director Shane Coleman said.
“It’s not free but it’s really close.”
Council unanimously agreed to accept the grant.
While talking about safety services, committee head
Jim Fortener reported from his meeting prior to the council
meeting.
“We all know we have to look at purchasing an ambulance,” Fortener began. “We need to look at our finances and
see what we can do.”
Mayor Michael Gallmeier told council the newest two
ambulances are 10 years old and the next newest is 15 years
old.
“We have to keep up on our equipment,” Gallmeier said.
“We have to provide the service to our community.”
Coleman agreed.
“All departments have worked hard to keep costs down.
We have delayed maintenance and replacing equipment and
vehicles. At some point, we have to start replacing old and

Quarterless Auction set to support Give Back Program
BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS — An initiative to help feed
their peers started in 2015 by two local middle school students needs a little boost to
continue its mission.
A Quarterless Auction will be held at
2 p.m. on Saturday at 5025 Kill Road,
Delphos, to benefit the Give Back Program.
The Give Back Program is the brain-

child of Jefferson FCCLA members Kristina
Claypool and Jennifer Ditto. It is a non-profit
organization that provides sack meals for the
weekend for needy children in the Delphos
schools. Each weekend pack includes two
breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, two
snacks and two drinks. They are delivered
to the schools on Friday to take home over
the weekend. The food is purchased from
the West Ohio Food Bank in Lima at $3.55
per pack.
There are approximately 307 students in

the Delphos City and Parochial School systems on the Free and Reduced Lunch program. Meals ‘Til Monday, partially supported
by Jefferson FCCLA with fundraisers, provides about 10 percent of those affected with
meals for the weekend; their charter only
allows them to serve elementary students.
An adult takes the girls to the food bank,
purchases the needed meals and drops them
off at the participating schools. Someone at
the school will distribute them to protect the
identity of the students in the program.

The auction will work similar to a quarter
auction with tickets used instead of quarters.
Tickets are $10 for a pack of 20.
Prizes include a Coach purse, Yeti cooler,
outdoor furniture, a grill, Tupperware, autographed sports memorabilia and more.
Barbecued chicken dinners, including
two sides, will be offered from 3-5 p.m. with
tickets $8 pre-sale.
Contact Lynn Miler at 419-234-2314 to
get tickets for the auction and/or dinner.

student/athlete, the Ministry Center or high school office.
Dinners can be picked up from 4-6:30 p.m. at the K of
C hall.

Local/State
Judge addresses double jeopardy in Soto case
BY STEVEN COBURNGRIFFIS
DHI Media Editor
sgriffis@putnamsentinel.com
OTTAWA — On Tuesday, Travis
D. Soto appeared in Putnam County
Common Pleas Court for a pre-trial
on charges that include aggravated murder, kidnapping and felonious assault related to the 2006
death of his two-year old son,
Julio Soto-Baldazo. With his hands
cuffed in front of him and wearing green and white striped prison
issue, Soto waited as his attorney,
Joseph Benavidez, met in chambers
with Judge Randall Basinger and
Assistant County Prosecutor Todd
Schroeder.
Upon convening the pre-trial,
Judge Basinger addressed Soto and
all present, conveying the content of
the privately held discussions.
“We’ve had some discussion in

Soto
chambers in terms of the status of
this case,” Judge Basinger said.
“Initially, the discussion has been
as to whether or not the defendant
is prepared to waive any right to a
speedy trial. It’s my understanding

that the defendant is prepared to
consent. Is that correct?”
Benavidez responded in the
affirmative, at which time Judge
Basinger read the waiver to Soto,
who, along with Benavidez, subsequently signed the waiver. Under
provisions of both the Ohio and
United States Constitution, defendants are guaranteed the right to a
trial of their peers within 90 days,
if incarcerated, or within 270 days
if not incarcerated. By signing the
waiver, Soto relinquished that right.
Then, not surprisingly, Judge
Basinger raised the issue of double
jeopardy.
In 2006, Soto was tried on a
charge of involuntary manslaughter.
In a plea deal negotiated between
Soto’s attorney at that time and
the Putnam County Prosecutor’s
Office, the charge was reduced
to child endangerment for which
Soto was sentenced to and served

a five-year prison sentence. It was
only after Soto voluntarily presented himself in late July to Putnam
County Sheriff’s Office officials
and confessed to a more intentional
role in the child’s death that the
new charges were filed. When the
new charges were brought forward,
Schroeder acknowledged that double jeopardy would almost certainly
play a role in the case.
“It is my understanding that a
motion for dismissal based on double jeopardy will be filed by the
defense,” Judge Basinger said. “Is
that correct, Mr. Benavidez.”
After receiving a positive
response from Benavidez, Judge
Basinger ennumerated the requirements for the process of filing a
motion for dismissal based on double jeopardy.
“I’m requiring that any motion
to dismiss based on double jeopardy
be filed by the fourth of October,

Prepare storage bins for new harvest season
By JIM LANGHAM
DHI Media Staff Writer
jlangham@timesbulletin.com
VAN WERT — Van Wert County
Extension Agent Curtis Young emphasized early this week the importance
of taking the time now to prepare
storage areas for the new grain prior
to harvest.
“Now is the time to get grain bins
prepared for corn and soybeans,” said
Young. “One step is having grain bins
completely empty. Those using bins
to store new grain should avoid all
old grain.
“The next step is to thoroughly
clean the bin inside and out,” continued Young. “When we refer to
clean, it means we refer to make sure
that no leftover grains are left from
the summer inside or outside on the
ground.”
Young said that sometimes grain
gets trapped in the aeration system.
He emphasized the importance of
making sure that all areas are rid of
insects so there are no insects for the
new grain. Young said that starting

with a broom is okay, but starting
with a vacuum is much better.
“It is important to clean so there
are no insects in the grain. That
means cleaning out the auger, any
edges and ledges, ladder rungs or
areas where grain can be trapped,”
said Young.
“The bin should be checked for
tightness; make sure the roof is not
leaking,” continued Young. “Make
sure there are no missed bolts or
anyplace where water could get in. If
there had been problems with insects
in the past, one would want to do
an empty bin treatment with insecticide.”
Young said that the most common
insecticide currently used for such
treatments is, “Tempo.” He noted
those cleaning should be careful when
considering empty bin treatment
because of label changes.
“In some cases, the insecticide
label says one can not apply within
the bin. It can be a real challenge,”
observed Young. “Malathion had
been an application of previous times,
but it has been pretty much removed

September Safe Driving
Awareness Month

now. Since it is such an old product,
a lot of scrutiny has been given to the
process now.”
Outside sanitation is just as important as inside sanitation, said Young.
He noted that weeds on the outside of
the bin can transfer insects from the
outside to the inside.
“We want to manage that now by
mowing or by herbicide,” observed
Young. “Make sure that anything
spilled on the outside of the bin is
cleaned up. Review all safety procedures and means of entering most
bins, whether ladders or other ways
of gaining entry.”
Young advocated making sure that
all safety devices are 100 percent safe
in that equipment. He emphasized the
importance of making sure that all
equipment is safe for the upcoming
harvest.
“Make sure that all of the grain
handling equipment such as augers,
grain bins and even combines are
cleaned and ready,” observed Young.

Livestock auction
wraps up another fair
BY ERIN COX
DHI Media News Editor
ecox@timesbulletin.com
VAN WERT — The 160th
Van Wert County Fair came
to a close on Monday night
with just the Junior Fair
Livestock Auction left for
Tuesday.
The annual auction began
Tuesday morning with the
traditional sale of a gallon
of milk. The milk sold for
$2,000. Last year, the milk
sold for $2,400.
The number of sale entries
increased this year to 274. In
2015, the Van Wert County
Junior Fair Livestock Auction
had seen its lowest numbers
with 266 animals entered. In

2014, there were 308 sale
units entered at the auction.
The total of premiums
paid out this year came in at
$125,355. In 2015, the total
was $127,400 and in 2014, it
was $145,320.
The average premium
was $457.50 which comes in
just under 2015’s average of
$471.06.
Swine was the largest group of animals that
went through the auction
on Tuesday. With 72 units,
the average premium was
$502.90 which was just
above last year’s price. In
total, the swine group earned
$36,209.

with any response by the State to
be filed by the eleventh of October
and any reply by the eighteenth of
October,” Judge Basinger said. “I’m
setting this for a hearing on that
motion on October 25, at 9 a.m.”
For that hearing, Judge
Basinger expressed the requirement that both the prosecution
and the defense have access to a
recording of Soto’s confession to
sheriff’s office personnel, as well
as a full transcript of that confession and any other statements
Soto has made pertaining to the
case. He further required access
to a full transcript of Soto’s 2006
trial and records outside the public
pervue, including letters from the
defendant in the court file and a
pre-sentencing report.
Judge Basinger then adjourned
the proceeding.

Information submitted
VAN WERT – September
is Safe Driving Awareness
Month, and the Ohio State
Highway Patrol is asking
motorists to commit driving
buckled, focused and sober.
In addition, motorists can help
keep roadways safe when
they take their time, drive
defensively and know all traffic safety laws.
Last year, 1,110 people
were killed in motor vehicle
crashes. Although fatal crashes rose slightly in 2015, Ohio
is still on pace with record
low fatal numbers.
“By devoting their full
attention to the road, motorists can reduce their risk of
getting into a crash,” said
Lt. Tim Grigsby, Van Wert
Post Commander. “We need
all motorists to practice safe
driving habits to make the
roadways safe all across
Ohio.”

From 2011-2015, an average of 287,732 motor vehicle crashes were reported on
Ohio’s public roadways each
year. On average, 1049 people
died in 966 of these crashes.
September was designated as Safe Driving Awareness
Month in June 2014 by Senate
bill 294 to honor Maria Tiberi
and other victims of motor
vehicle crashes. Tiberi was
a 21-year-old college student who died in a distracted
driving crash in September
2013. She is the daughter of
Columbus television sports
anchor, Dom Tiberi.
One suggested driver
improvement program is the
Smith System. The Smith
System stresses five keys to
driving defensively: (1) aim
high in steering; (2) get the
big picture; (3) keep your
eyes moving; (4) leave yourself an out; and (5) make sure
they see you.

Auxiliary donates to Veterans Food Pantry
VFW Auxiliary to Delphos Post 3035 recently donated a check for $200 to the Veterans Food Pantry in Lima. Auxiliary Junior
Vice President Cathy Hughes, far left, and President Missy Wagoner, presented the check to Veteran Pantry co-ordinators
Betty Wharton and Kay Sellers, far right. In the month of August, the pantry served 353 veterans families, a total of nearly
900 people living in counties in West Central Ohio. While the pantry receives bread and vegetable donations and items from
the Food Bank, they rely on monetary donations to make up the difference for veterans’ needs. (Submitted photo)

You just never, ever
really know, do you?
Jim Metcalfe
The Southeastern
Conference is overrated!
Hooray!
Do I have your
attention?
I can just hear the
steam coming out
of the ears of their
Tri-County-area fans
now and the profanities on their lips toward my person!
This is all written very tongue in cheek!
Do I believe it for one minute, that the SEC is finished and
no longer at the top of the heap? Not by any means.
The SEC did have a bad week in last week’s Greatest
Opening Week of College Football Ever by going 7-7 —
including some upsets and near upsets, like Tennessee escaping versus App State — but do I think this is a trend?
I know some are already looking forward to that possibility
but the SEC burial is far off.
The SEC set the bar so high in the last decade for themselves that they couldn’t possibly keep living up to it every
game and every season; they were bound to have a week like
this.
The truth is, their dominance — we have to call it such with
Alabama winning four of the last seven titles and other teams
doing as well as they have before then — forced everybody to
work that much harder to catch up.
Everybody else had to improve — whether it be coaching,
working harder for recruits, improving facilities or whatever
they had to — or be left behind, so it was a good thing for
college football.
Think about it: how many Midwest — read Big Ten —
teams regularly camp out for Florida recruits, knowing you
have to go after the same recruits that Alabama, Florida,
Auburn and other SEC teams are after?
Florida is becoming a battleground all its own if you really
want to compete with the elite, as well as getting some good
recruits out of Texas, California, Louisiana and Georgia.
That is what OSU coach Urban Meyer set about doing
almost immediately after being hired as Buckeyes’ head coach;
get that Florida pipeline going.
Jim Harbaugh, that Hated Man Up North, is going to be
tapping into it as well, along with every other team that can try.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so it’s all the
SEC’s fault!
I hope everybody has calmed down and won’t kill me now!
Just another thing: I like these early-season Top-25 nonleague matchups and hope for more in the future!
=========
Call this Colin Kaepernick part deux.
I suppose it’s no surprise that he made the San Francisco
49ers’ roster on their final cutdown day but there has yet to be
a decision on who is the starter: he or Blaine Gabbert.
You knew he was going to make the team after his decision
to not stand for the National Anthem anymore because of racism, police brutality, politicians getting away with things the
average Joe and Jane would go to jail for, etc.

Pirates sink Lancers

match outside Middle Point on Tuesday. The Lady Pirates

MIDDLE POINT — The
Lincolnview Lady Lancers
welcomed the Bluffton Lady
Pirates to Lincolnview High
School on Tuesday night as
Northwest Conference girls
soccer action kicked off for
Bluffton.
The Lady Pirates picked
up a 12-1 victory over the
Lady Lancers.
The Lady Lancers spent
little time on the ball as the
Lady Pirates controlled possession for much of the game.
Bluffton set up camp in

the Lincolnview half of the
field. The Lady Lancers’
counter-attacking chances
were few in number as the
Bluffton back line held strong
for much of the game.
The Lady Lancers got
some quality saves from
Trinitey Brown to open the
match against Bluffton.
In the eighth minute, the
Lady Pirates got a beautiful through ball to a running Abbie Parkins, who was
able to run away from the
Lincolnview defenders and
calmly finish in front of the
Lincolnview goalie in giving
Bluffton a 1-0 lead.

‘Cats pummel Panthers on pitch
BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

PAULDING — Jefferson’s
girls soccer team is making
progress toward joining some
of the area’s elite programs in
Division III.
Paulding’s is in its second
season in the varsity wars.
The Wildcats scored just
1:41 into the Northwest

Conference match on a warm
Tuesday at Keysor Field and
they never looked back in an
18-0 rout.
“We tried to simplify our
scheme this week in practice,
especially defensively. We’ve
given up a lot of goals the
last few games and — after
looking at film — we found
out we were out of position
on many of them,” Jefferson

head coach Josiah Stober
explained. “Offensively, we
got back to looking for assists
and we had a lot of them
today. That was something
we know we need to have
— moving the ball a lot and
finding open players. We also
worked on maintaining our
form and shape, no matter
what the score was or where
we had girls. It’s always good

to get younger girls playing
time and giving others needed rest for a long season, plus
give girls a chance to play
different spots.”
Panther coach Sam Rue
is looking to take small steps
but knew what he was getting
into.

MINSTER AT ST. JOHN’S
St. John’s head coach Todd Schulte
knows what Minster brings to the table
in the MAC opener.
“Start with their multiple-formation
offense that makes you adjust quickly on
the field. Their quarterback, Huelsman,

is a 2-way threat;
in their opener, he
ran 30 times for
200 yards and he
has good speed,”
Schulte began.
“Schmiesing is
in the backfield
and he runs hard;
he breaks a lot of
tackles and is hard to catch from behind.
They also split him out wide and they try
to throw to him in space.

Lady Green survive 5-setter at Van Wert
BY JIM COX
DHI Media Correspondent

VAN WERT — The
undefeated Ottoville volleyball team — now 6-0 —
looked vulnerable for awhile
Tuesday night against the
fired-up Van Wert Cougars
(now 1-5).
However, the Lady Green
put it together in the third set
and eventually pulled out an
18-25, 23-25, 25-17, 25-20,
15-6 win.
“We switched our lineup
a little bit (in the third set)
but we knew coming in this
was gonna be a tough game,”
said Ottoville coach Kelsey
Wolfe. “Mentally, those first
two games we weren’t in it.
As soon as that third game
hit, we were mentally in, we
were connecting on passes,
we were connecting on sets,
and then it was a whole team
dynamic effort.”
“Serve-receive sort of
took us out of it; that and
some ball-handling errors,”
said Van Wert coach Jeff
Marbaugh. “The first two
sets, I thought we stayed with
it, stayed confident, kept
making plays. Through the
third and the fourth and even
into the fifth, we just lost
focus a little bit.”
The Cougars were at their
best in the first set. Trailing
10-6, they reeled off nine
points in a row to take command. Van Wert senior Emma
Kohn had seven kills, two

from the back row, in the first
set alone.
The second set was similar to the first with Van Wert

getting its first lead at 12-11
and never trailing after that.
However, there were some
anxious moments for Cougar

fans near the end. Van Wert
led 24-19, but Ottoville
scored four straight points to
get within 24-23.

on Tuesday evening.
Despite being on the losing
end of the match, Ottoville
was giving junior goalkeeper
Hannah Bixler constant pressure throughout all 80 minutes. Bixler was able to rack
up eight saves in the first half
to keep the Hornets up 3-0.
While Cory-Rawson had
few chances to put the ball
into the net, they were effi-

cient in doing so.
The Hornets were able to
score twice in their first five
attempts. Cory-Rawson’s
offense was led by Chloe
Blackburn (junior), Hayley
Waltz (junior) and Brooke
Shoemaker (senior) who each
scored on attempts at the net,
including a successful penalty kick.

(Continued from page 6A)
One of the Lincolnview counter-attack opportunities saw
midfielder Allison Warnement have a go from 25 yards out,
which forced a diving save from Bluffton netminder Jadyn
Barhorst at the 16-minute mark.
“We did improve a little bit from what we have been doing
— we strung a few passes together — just to have to come
together as a team. We have some individual moments but we
need to connect the dots so we can get from here to there,”
said Lincolnview soccer coach Tyson Thatcher. “Bluffton put
a lot of pressure on us and made it tough on us to play out of
the back.”
At the 20-minute mark, the Lincolnview defense could no
longer hold back the Bluffton forwards and midfielders as the
Lady Pirates netted four goals in a 5-minute span as Sarah
Cartwright, Kayla White (who scored twice) and Parkins all
scored goals; 5-0 Lady Pirates.
The Lady Lancers got another attacking chance in the 27th
minute as Olivia Gorman raced towards the Bluffton back
line before the Lady Pirate center backs were able to cut off
Gorman passing lanes and intercept the ball.
Bluffton would score two more times before the end of the
first half as Katie Burkholder and Parkins did to give the Lady
Pirates a 7-0 lead at half.
All in total in the second half, the Lady Pirates scored five
more goals as Sarah Theisen, Parkins, Burkholder, Avery
Rumer and Brinkley Garmatter all put their names in the scoring column.
The Lady Lancers ended Bluffton’s hope of a clean sheet
in the final two minutes of the match as Gorman was streaking towards the 18-yard box. As Gorman entered the box, a
Bluffton defender knock her to the ground to give Lincolnview
a penalty kick.
Gorman stepped to the spot and after a couple of breaths
calmly finished just inside the left post to put the Lady Lancers
on the board.
“I like to see that we at least got one score at the goal. That
gave us a little reward for our effort today and I was proud of
that. We got to work a little smart we are reacting a little late
to the ball at times. When the ball is moving we have to be
at that person sooner so they don’t have time to do what they
want; we want them to do what we want as a team,” finished
Coach Thatcher.
The Lady Pirates improve to 1-3 on the year and 1-0 in the
NWC. Lincolnview drops to 1-4 on the season and 1-1 in the
NWC.

Hornets
(Continued from page 6A)
After being down 3-0 at
the break, junior midfielder
Amber Miller and her teammates kept the pressure on
the Hornet defense until they
could capitalize off of a penalty kick 11 minutes into the
second half, cutting the lead
down to 3-1.
Big Green goalkeeper
Brittney Winhover was also
doing her best to keep the
Hornets off the board by
recording nine saves in the
second half alone. She was
kept busy as the Hornets fired
11 shots to try to build their
lead after halftime.
The Lady Hornets lost
their highly productive senior
midfielder Caroline Schutz,
as she went down near the
end of the first half with an
ankle injury. Fortunately,
Schutz returned to the pitch
near the end of the second
half to provide a spark for
two late goals for the Hornets.
Cory-Rawson defender
Chloe Stragnolia exerted all
of her effort to keep the lead
as she made an impressive
display of stops against the
pressuring Big Green. Once

the Lady Hornets pierced
through Ottoville’s constant
pressure, it gave Waltz and
her teammates a chance to
show off their breakaway
speed and footwork to take
shots at the goal.
“We’ve been working
extremely hard this year on
our positioning and making
sure we have good shape
(going down the field),” said
Cory-Rawson head coach
Mark Schwemer on how they
were able to score with such
efficiency despite the pressure on the other end of the
field. “We did a very good
job of finding each other
and holding our shape going
down field. It resulted in giving us an open space to get
our shots off.”
Cory-Rawson jumps to 2-3
after its solid performance
and the Hornets look to continue their momentum as they
matchup against Miller City
at home on Saturday.
Ottoville falls to 1-2-2 on
the season. The Lady Green
visit St. John’s on Saturday
morning in Delphos.

“Jefferson is a very talented team
and we’re building from scratch yet,”
he added. “One thing I am looking for
is the girls continuing to play hard no
matter the score or the time and I saw no
quitting from them; they played hard to
the very end. That can be very difficult
to keep playing hard but they did; that’s
all you can ask from your team in that
situation.”
Maddie McConnahea scored that
goal at 38:19 past Panther keeper
Zoey Wright (15 saves versus 35 shots
on-goal, 44 overall) on an 8-yarder from
the right wing.
She added four more tallies: at 37:10
from nine yards on the left wing for a
2-nil score; at 36:54 (assist to Arianna
Knebel) on a 9-yarder from the middle
for 3-0; a long dribble off a goal kick
that she put in the twine from the left
post from 10 yards for a 5-0 lead at
23:28 of the half
Knebel got in the scorebook with a
tally at 34:34 on a lead from Kendall
Marquiss for a 4-0 edge; and later at
10:20 when she stole the ball and found
the net from six yards out for a 10-0
scoreboard.
Kendall Marquiss had three tallies in
the first half: at 21:58 with a feed from

“They have good size up
front. They run a 3-5 defense
and they bring their linebackers a lot on blitzes. They run
well and they attack downhill. They are very difficult
for your linemen to get to that
level and get them blocked.”
The Blue Jay offense
averages 31 points per game,
with tailback Aaron Reindel
accounting for 385 yards
rushing on 48 attempts (8
scores), Jake Youngpeter
completing 17-of-34 passing
for 262 yards (1 TD, 3 picks),
Eric Vogt catching nine balls

the coaches’ agreement, allowed for a

of the same philosophy on
offense: we are run-oriented
but we have the ability to pass
the ball as well,” Sommers
began. “Timmy Timbrook
has started at halfback ever
since he was a freshman and
he has good speed; he also is
tough to bring down.
“They run a 3-5 defense
that loves to blitz a lot with
multiple linebackers; they
like to get into the backfield, especially with pulling
guards.”
The Jefferson offense that
averages 20 points a game is
topped by the 2-headed running back monster of Brenen
Auer (39 rushes,288 yards,
2 scores; 3 grabs, 123 yards,

Other scorers were Carder, who chested in a cross from Marquiss from 10

when Hastings — now playing the field

A letdown is always a

“We have great senior
leaders; we were ready to get
back onto the practice field
Monday. That was a tough
game we had with Coldwater
but that is past and Fairview
is on our horizon,” he added.
“We n eeded a tough, hardnosed game like that to prepare us to play four quarters
of tough, physical football for
the future. That is the type of
game you need that can only
bring you together even more
if you correct the mistakes
you make and also build on
the positives we took from
that game.

Like I told ‘em, ‘It should
hurt; you had ‘em, you were
right there, so learn.’ That’s
what we’re doing, just keep
competing.”
Bridget Landin ended the
night with 25 kills, 12 digs,

Emily Landin led the Lady

75 Years Ago – 1941
Lieut. Paul E. Gardner, formerly of Delphos, has been chosen
to attend the Wheel Vehicle Maintenance Course, Armored Force
School, at Ft. Knox, Ky. He is assigned to the 23rd Engineers
Battalion (Armored), Camp Polk, La., a part of the 3rd Armored
Division. Pvt. William H. Ringwald, near Delphos, formerly
stationed at Ft. Lewis, Washington, has been transferred to the
Aberdeen proving grounds in Maryland.
Word has been received here that Robert Hummer, formerly
a resident of South Clay Street, has been granted admission
with advance standing, to Northwestern University in Evanston,
Illinois. He has completed his freshman year at the Illinois Institute
of Technology at Chicago and will therefore enter Northwestern
as a sophomore where he will major in physics and mathematics.
While the Chicago Cubs have no direct interest in the first-division of the National League, their eagerness to stay out of
seventh place helped change the complexion of the league’s fastest-paced pennant race in years Friday. The Cubs, lodged in sixth
place, played like champions Thursday to defeat the St. Louis
Cardinals twice, 3-0 and 4-3, and knocked the Red Birds one full
game behind the idle Brooklyn Dodgers.

Council

Queen

(Continued from page 1A)
City Auditor Tom Jettinghoff
said the city’s finances are
looking better and the purchase
wouldn’t “break the bank.”
Council asked that an ordinance pertaining to the purchase
of the ambulance be prepared,
including the cost and where
the funds will come from, and
be presented at the next meeting
on Sept. 19.
The city is also moving forward with the automated water
meter reading project. Coleman
said residents can expect a letter
from NECO and the city notifying them of the meter changeout and to check piping near
the meter, shut-off valve, etc.
Those with meters inside their
homes will also be contacted
to schedule an appointment to
have those meters changed.
Those with pit meters in the tree
lawns will not need to make an
appointment.
“This project will take
a while so some may not be
contacted for several weeks,”
Coleman said. “We are hoping
to have this completed and be
on monthly billing by the first
of the year or sooner.”
Coleman said he is also
working on how to transition
from quarterly billing to monthly as painlessly as possible for
customers.
“We are two months behind
on billing with the quarterly
billing and with how much time
it takes to read meters by hand,”
Coleman said. “We are looking at this carefully to find a
solution that doesn’t harm our
residents.”
The double set of railroad
tracks on South Canal Street
were addressed.
“Since June, we have had
several single-car accidents at
those crossings with cars bottoming out and being damaged,”
Coleman said. “We’ve talked to
the railroad and their ultimate
goal is to close the crossings
and they have no desire to fix
the grade. We can’t afford to fix
it, either. Right now, they have
agreed to share in the cost of
signage at the tracks noting is
it a rough track and perhaps a
speed limit reduction notice at
the crossing.”
Councilman Josh Gillespie
asked if the city had any liability concerning the accidents.

th

Coleman said no.
“Our fire and rescue vehicles don’t use that road because
of the grade,” Coleman said.
A request from Sonya Osting
to host the annual Delphos
Zombie Walk on Oct. 16 with
walkers using the paths in the
Westside Cemetery and the
American Legion Post for other
activities met with concern.
“I think that out of respect
for those who have loved ones
buried there, they need to
find somewhere else to have
the walk,” Councilman Mark
Clement said.
Council unanimously agreed
that Osting would have to find
another location for the walking
portion of the event.
Councilmen and other elected officials could see a raise in
2020, according to legislation
heard for the first time regarding salaries. Councilman Joe
Martz brought the legislation
forward with the salary of the
mayor set at $22,000 per year;
city treasurer at $3,800 a year;
city law director at $12,000 per
year; president of council at
$3,800 a year; council members at $3,600 per year; and
the office of auditor at $12,000
per year.
“We reduced those when
everyone else was taking a
reduction and I think we need
to put those back in place with
a raise,” Martz said.
He stated his concern with
the lack of interest in others
running for council positions.
Councilman Del Kemper
agreed.
“We have to put a carrot out
there,” he said. “We have to
make it attractive so prospective candidates think it’s worthwhile. Maybe it’s a car payment
or can go toward vacations. We
need to spark some interest in
these council seats that aren’t
being sought.”
These positions had taken
reduction when city employees
were furloughed in 2012.
The effective date of 2020
is necessary because by law,
council cannot vote themselves
a raise in pay and by 2020, most
if not all councilmen will have
cycled out.
Coleman also touched on
dilapidated and unkempt properties, telling council he was
looking back through at the
city’s ordinances concerning

such matters.
“We need to decide if we
are going to address these
issues with ordinances we
have or make new ordinances,”
Coleman said. “I also need to
know how far council wants us
to go with these issues. It can
be costly on our side and the
resident or business owner gets
a minimal fine.”
Council asked to discuss the
matter further once Coleman
had gathered his information.
Councilman Kemper said
that while they were discussing it, he wanted to remind
residents that overgrown trees
and brush across sidewalks
and alleyways was the property owner’s responsibility and it
should be kept up so those areas
are passable. He added that garbage and recycle recepticles are
not to stay at the curb past the
collection day.
“I’ve heard complaints that
people are just leaving them
at the curb or on the road all
week,” Kemper said. “We need
to address this. That is terrible.”
Council also learned healthcare costs for city employees
would be increasing by 12.4
percent for the next two calendar years.
“We can split that up and
do 6.2 percent the first year
and do the other 6.2 percent in
deficit recovery or we can pay
the full 12.4-percent increase,”
Coleman said. “It is to our
advantage to split the increase
because in 2018, the increase
will be based on the 6.2 percent,
not the 12.4 percent.”
Finance Committee Chair
Gillespie requested a committee meeting following the Sept.
19 council meeting to discuss
the insurance issue and the new
ambulance.
Council will have to decide
if the city will pick up the entire
increase, a portion of it, passing
along the remainder to employees, or not cover any of the
increase.
Council also heard on first
reading an ordinance allowing
the city to enter into an agreement with the Ohio Department
of Transportation for Bridge
Inspection Program Services at
no cost to the city.
The mayor announced Trick
or Treat for Delphos will be
held from 6-7:30 p.m. Oct. 27.

The music that moves us ...

The Buzz of the ‘B’s 1950s-80s…

Letter B….A sprinkling of memorable songs
beginning with the letter B from the pop music
songbook:
“Blueberry Hill” No. 2 1956 Fats Domino
‘Though we’re apart,
You’re part of me still,
For you were my thrill,
On Blueberry Hill”
If you enjoyed the TV show “Happy Days,”
you may recall Richie Cunningham/Ron Howard starting in on this song whenever he landed
a date. Covered by many artists, this was Fats
Domino’s biggest hit.
“Be-Bop-A-Lula” No. 7 1956 Gene Vincent &
His Blue Caps
“Well she’s the girl in the red blue jeans,
She’s the queen of all the teens,
She’s the one that I know,
She’s the one that loves me so”
According to songfacts.com “Be-Bop-a-Lula” was the first record Paul McCartney ever
bought.” Many early on mistook the song to
be Elvis singing. Should you be interested in
viewing the song on YouTube, you’ll see good
example of the swag and splendor of 1950’s pop
culture.
“Blue Bayou” No. 29 1963 Roy Orbison & No.
3 1977 Linda Ronstadt
“I feel so bad I’ve got a worried mind,
I’m so lonesome all the time,
Since I left my baby behind on Blue Bayou”
Roy Orbison wrote the song and both he and
Ronstadt scored great notoriety singing the song.
The one of a kind singing voice of Orbison just
tickles the ears.
“Bend Me Shape Me” No. 5 1968 The American Breed
‘Bend me, shape me,
Anyway you want me,
You got the power to turn on the light’
The Outsiders first released this song in 1967

(You may remember their “Time Won’t Let Me”
hit) but The American Breed rendition is probably the version you sing along to. Good Stuff.
“Baby Come Back” No. 1 1978 Player
“Baby come back, any kind of fool could see,
There was something in everything about you,
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me,
I was wrong, and I just can’t live without you”
It seems if you like this song, you really like this
song! Mellow and melodic, this soft rock classic
is a sing-along all-timer.
“Baker Street” No. 2 1978 Gerry Rafferty
“He’s got this dream about buyin’ some land,
He’s gonna give up the booze and the one night
stands,
And then he’ll settle down, it’s a quiet little town,
And forget about everything”.
Before going solo Rafferty was a member of
“Stealers Wheel.” You may remember “Stuck In
The Middle With You” 1973. The sax riff in Baker Street makes me reach for the volume knob
every time.
“Born In The U.S.A.” No. 9 1984 Bruce
Springsteen
“Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A”.
A mid-80’s hit from one of the “great ones.”
Bruce Springsteen sings about tough times and CLUES DOWN
the working class man like no other. The Born In 1. Mothlike insect
The U.S.A. album alone had seven Top 10 sin- 2. Equally
gles. Always lyrics with meaning from Spring- 3. Flightless birds
4. Grilling tool
steen.
The Buzz of the B’s is seemingly endless in the 5. When you plan to arrive
6. Thoroughfare
pop music songbook.
7. Philosophical life force
8. Birds
Good Vibrations.
9. Anxious
10. Man’s title
(songfacts.com, biography.com, Wikipedia, you- 11. Issued
tube.com, questions or comments can be emailed 13. Prayer leader
to ecc@woh.rr.com)

HOROSCOPES

your attention, and you do not know
where to direct it first.

Cancer, do your best to overhaul
your finances. Some recent purchases might have made you vulnerable,
and now is a great time to regain
control.

in food or beverages this week. Good
times are ahead and you want to be

at home must be weighed before
making a final decision. Don’t give
up; just reevaluate your timing.

it.

SAGITTARIUS

AQUARIUS

It’s easy to expect others to keep
your pace when you have all of your
ducks in a row, Aquarius. However, not everyone works on the same
schedule that you do. Allow time to
catch up.
PISCES
Feb 19/Mar 20
Pisces, promising more than you can
possibly deliver at this time will not
win you any admirers. Others will
appreciate your honesty.
