Officials, family dedicate 5th Habitat home
BY NANCY SPENCER email@example.com DELPHOS — The Julie Smith family will soon move into its new home. The family will occupy the fifth Habitat for Humanity home built in Delphos in the last four years. Habitat, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, city officials, Smith family members and volunteers gathered Sunday afternoon to dedicate the latest endeavor. “This whole process has been a lifetime opportunity for me and my children,” Julie Smith said Sunday. “It’s been a lot of hard work and dedication and I’ve learned how to use electric tools.” She and her two children, Brandyn, 12, and Aliyah, 6, and their Jack Russell Terrier, Jack, will live in the home. Smith spoke for several minutes during the dedication; thanking everyone who helped and offered support while the home was built. “I couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you,” Smith added. Lutheran Church Project Coordinator Dave Stemen has overseen the volunteer base for the local Habitat Homes. He was impressed with the volunteer base for the project. “We have 70-plus people work on this home,” Stemen said. “It was great to have so many volunteers. Julie’s family made up 8-10 of those volunteers. They were really great and have already told me they are willing to help on future homes. That’s a plus because they have already learned what needs done.” Mayor Michael Gallmeier said he was pleased with the Habitat Homes in Delphos. “Habitat has come in to Delphos and taken vacant lots and turned them into homes,” Gallmeier said. “That is the American dream, to own your own home, and Habitat is making that possible for people who under normal circumstances, couldn’t do it. I am also just speechless at all the volunteers who have come forward to make this happen.” Local pastors were also on hand. The Rev. Mel Verhoff said the home was built by

Employers looking at health insurance options
WASHINGTON (AP) — The new health care law wasn’t supposed to undercut employer plans that have provided most people in the U.S. with coverage for generations. But last week a leading manufacturer told workers their costs will jump partly because of the law. Also, a Democratic governor laid out a scheme for employers to get out of health care by shifting workers into taxpayer-subsidized insurance markets that open in 2014. While it’s too early to proclaim the demise of jobbased coverage, corporate number crunchers are looking at options that could lead to major changes. Gov. Phil Bredesen, D-Tenn., said the economics of dropping coverage are “about to become very attractive to many employers, both public and private.” That’s just not going to happen, White House officials say. “The absolute certainty about the Affordable Care Act is that for many, many employers who cover millions of people, it increases

the incentives for them to offer coverage,” said Jason Furman, an economic adviser to President Barack Obama. Yet at least one major employer has shifted a greater share of plan costs to workers, and others are weighing the pros and cons of eventually forcing employees to strike out on their own. “I don’t think you are going to hear anybody publicly say ’We’ve made a decision to drop insurance’,” said Paul Keckley, executive director of the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions. “What we are hearing in our meetings is, ‘We don’t want to be the first one to drop benefits, but we would be the fast second.’ We are hearing that a lot.” Deloitte is a major accounting and consulting firm. “My conclusion on all of this is that it is a huge roll of the dice,” said James Klein, president of the American Benefits Council, which represents big company benefits administrators. “It could work out well and build on the employer-based system, or it See INSURANCE, page 2
Sidewalk at Garfield Park poured
Stacy Taff photo
Early Saturday morning at Garfield Park, a group of volunteers from around the area worked together to pour 2,000 square feet of concrete for a sidewalk and slab to make way for the new charcoal grill which will be put in next week. All money for the project was raised during this year’s Marbletown Festival. “K&L Ready Mix donated about 40 percent of the cost of the concrete for this,” said Bob Ulm of the fetival committee. “With all that and the volunteer work together, it probably cut the cost about $10,000. If we had to pay for the labor they’re volunteering, it would be very expensive. It’s pretty amazing these guys gave up their Saturday to come here and do this for the community.” Beining Contractors and Klaus Construction also assisted, as well as Stadium Club members.

Ohio’s mental-health system on verge of collapse
COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s mental-health system is on the verge of collapse as the state, faced with plummeting revenue, has slashed funding to mental-health programs by 35 percent in the past three years. The Columbus Dispatch reports Sunday that Ohio’s system was once a national model. Now, thousands have been cut from mental-healthcare rolls and hundreds of small group homes for the mentally ill have closed their doors. “Our state leaders have washed their hands of Ohioans who are suffering from mental illness,” said Terry Russell, a veteran at the local and state level in Ohio’s mental-health system. “If we are to be judged by By TODD PORTER The Canton Repository how we treat the sickest in our society, we should all be ashamed.” The National Alliance on Mental Illness estimates some 418,000 Ohioans suffer from serious mental illnesses including major depression, schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress disorder. Fewer than one in four are receiving services. “The mental-health system is on the verge of collapse,” said Cheri Walter, chief executive officer of the Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities. “The mentally ill in Ohio are homeless, living on the streets and in jail.” Some former hospital patients live in small group homes like the one Johanna Queck has run in Columbus since 1985. Mary Brown, 58, has lived there since she left a state hospital. She compared other facilities to jails, where people didn’t treat her well. “This house makes me feel more free,” Brown said. “Without this place, I’d be lost.” But Queck, who runs the small home, says she doesn’t know how much longer she can stay open. “We didn’t get a raise,” Queck said. “The electric goes up. The gas goes up. The groceries go up. We get nothing.” And The Dispatch reports that the plight of mentally ill Ohioans is expected to get worse next year as state officials face a projected $8 billion budget shortfall. The current problems with the state’s mental-health system come, in part, from a lack of funding for a 1988 state law designed to move people out of institutions and into community-based homes. The idea behind the Mental Health Act of 1988 was to encourage cheaper local treatment to allow counties to maximize their funding. The law succeeded in downsizing state psychiatric hospitals from an average daily population of 3,823 patients in 1988 to about 1,000 today. But instead of pledging money to meet a growing need for community services, the state cut funding by more than $100 million over the past three years.

Spielman moves on after wife’s death Insurance
COLUMBUS (AP) — Last month as the leaves were changing colors and autumn was setting in, Chris Spielman and his four children visited the cemetery. At a time of year and a setting where they were surrounded by death, they remembered life. They gathered where their mother and wife was buried. Stefanie Spielman, a vibrant breast cancer advocate, died last November. The former Stefanie Belcher, a Jackson High School graduate, married Chris, an AllAmerican linebacker from Massillon and her high school sweetheart. They had what seemed to be a fairy-tale love story. On this sunny September day, Chris brought his four children to the cemetery. Madison is 16 and Noah is 14. They have memories of their mother. Macy is 9 and Audrey just 8. Chris, Madison and Noah want to make sure the younger daughters always have memories of their mother. Audrey plays soccer. She is good enough that she was moved up a grade level. While driving home from a recent practice, Chris asked her what she thought her mom was doing now. “She said, ’She’s probably dancing with Michael Jackson,”’ Spielman said, laughing at the thought. “I ask them about her all the time.” That early fall day in the cemetery was the 10-month anniversary of her death. Stefanie’s passing, after a 12-year battle with breast cancer, was very public. Now the family was remembering her in private. Each kid shared a story about what they remembered about their mom. “It was interesting because as I listened to each kid, it was a happy moment ... a story that made them laugh,” Chris said. At 16 years old, Madison is the oldest child, the one who vividly remembers her father as an NFL linebacker. She told a story about watching her dad play in a game on TV with Stefanie. Madison asked her mother, “Why is dad the only guy not freakin’ American?” Stefanie didn’t understand. Madison repeated the question. Eventually Stefanie figured it out. Madison had mistaken “freakin’ American” with “African-American.” The Spielmans laughed. It was like that, one by one. Every time a kid told a memory, they laughed. Then it was Chris’ turn. “The worst one was mine,” Chris said. “They were all telling happy stories, and when it was my turn to talk, I told them I miss my friend. I didn’t mean to bring everybody down, but that’s what popped into my head first. “There may have been a little bit of tears, but it wasn’t something that was sad. It was a cool experience.” Yes, some days are tough. The Spielmans look at most, though, with a greater perspective. Even the kids. “We’re all doing better than what any of us thought we could be doing,” Madison said. “It’s been really hard on all of us. We all realize she is in a better place than we all could provide for her, and we’re grateful for that. It’s hard because we miss our
agree that the whole mentalhealth system is on the verge of collapse. She says more people are being served, but she said there is “unevenness” in services across the state. Gov. Ted Strickland — a former prison psychologist — and his Republican challenger John Kasich both say they consider mental health a high priority. “I wish we could have given more money to mental health,” Strickland said. “That’s my field, and it’s been painful to me as I’ve traveled around Ohio and I’ve bumped into people who used to be my friends complaining to me that they feel like they haven’t gotten what they needed, and I understand that.”

“Bureaucracy, the rule of no one, has become the modern form of despotism.” — Mary McCarthy, author and critic (born 1912, died this date in 1989)
Gubernatorial races offer sharp skirmishes
By TOM RAUM The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Some of the sharpest bare-knuckle skirmishes this election season are the races for governor, especially in states shouldering the highest unemployment rates and largest tax increases. Many also are important in presidential elections, and both parties are pouring millions of dollars into statehouse races in the closing days of the campaign. There are now 26 Democratic governors and 24 Republicans. A record 37 governorships are up for grabs on Nov. 2; more half are contests where an incumbent isn’t running. Polls show Democrats risk losing around a dozen seats, including those in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin, Maine and New Mexico. But they also have a shot at pickups in four or five states, including California and possibly Florida. Joblessness in many states is far worse than the nation’s 9.6 percent unemployment rate. Leading the pack as of August: Nevada, at 14.1 percent, closely followed by Michigan at 13.1 By BEN FELLER The Associated Press percent, California at 12.4 percent, Rhode Island at 11.8 percent and Florida at 11.7 percent. South Carolina, Oregon, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Georgia, Kentucky and Mississippi also had unemployment rates at or above 10 percent. In hard-hit states, the debates are less about broader themes or social issues and more about the nuts and bolts of governing, taxes and spending. Some examples: —In Ohio, Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland and Republican John Kasich have clashed over taxes and how to lead the state out of the economic crisis. Kasich, a former congressman, accuses Strickland of doing too little to lessen Ohio’s tax burden. Strickland blames Bush-era policies and Wall Street greed for Ohio’s grief. Kasich’s strong early lead has narrowed in recent polls, but he’s still ahead of Strickland in most surveys. —In the California battle between former Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown and billionaire businesswoman Meg Whitman, a divisive issue is Whitman’s proposal to eliminate state capital gains taxes, a move she says would help stimulate California’s ailing money, Obama will have to decide whether to bend to Republican and growing Democratic pressure to extend Bush-era tax cuts, even for the wealthy, that expire at year’s end. Obama wants to extend them for people making less than $200,000 and married couples making less than $250,000, but a broader extension is gaining favor with an increasing number of Democrats. Moving to the fore will be a more serious focus on how to balance the federal budget and pay for the programs that keep sinking the country into debt. In other times, that discussion might seem like dry, Washington talk. Not now. People are fed up with federal spending, particularly as many remain jobless. The White House refuses to talk about how the president will have to adjust his style or goals if power in Congress tilts right, for fear
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
DEAR EDITOR: I just wanted to pass a few things along before the general election happening Nov. 2. The following is information on tax increases that you will incur starting Jan. 1, 2011. Tax rate increase on Federal Income Tax. The 10 percent rate is raising to 15 percent, 25 percent raising to 28 percent, 28 percent is raising to 31 percent, 33 percent to 36 percent, and 35 percent to 39.6 percent. The increases do not stop here at all. The marriage penalty tax comes back which means your spouse, for tax purposes, is only worth about half a person. The child tax credit will be cut in half also from $1,000 down to $500. The Death Tax will return for estates of 1 million or more. You say, oh that is just on millionaires, who cares. Well a lot of small businesses will fall under this including a lot of farmers. You have to add it all together: the home with every thing in it, and the money in all of the bank accounts with the deceased name on them; and the business and of the equipment, buildings, land, etc. Your health care premiums will be taxed as income for the first time. This could put you into a new tax bracket if your premiums DEAR EDITOR, Let me start by saying that I have had a child graduate from both private and public schools. I don’t believe there is anyone that doesn’t want the best education for children for their future and that of this great country. With that being said, I hope people look at all the facts before they vote. Here are just a few items to consider before casting your vote! Many people have had their hours cut at work, no cost of living increase in several years, and many people have lost their jobs and had to take a less paying job just to survive. There are a great number of us that don’t work in Delphos, so we pay tax in another city with a very small credit from Delphos, almost doubling our taxes. Starting in January, many people have found that with Obama Care they are going to have to pay more per month toward their health insurance because it will cost their employer more. Also, starting in January the amount your employer pays for your health care benefits will show up on your W-2 and at some point you will pay taxes on this amount. Do you know what it costs your employer for you pay added to what your income has been recently puts you into the upper bracket. Americans will no longer be able to use health savings accounts or flex spending accounts for over-the-counter or non-prescription drugs. Flexible spending accounts will no longer be able to be used by parents with specialneeds children to pay for their special-needs education. The tax deduction for tuition and fees will not be available, also the student loan deduction will be disallowed for most families. I am writing this to let all of you know how much your taxes are going up as of Jan. 1, 2011. This is information needed when you go vote in all levels of government. I have not put everything in this letter because it will not all fit but there is much more. Remember go out and vote. Here is a web page that shows it. www. atr.org/six-months-untilbr-largest-tax-hikesa5171 Francis German, Wapakoneta and formerly of Delphos your health care? And if the tax cuts don’t get extended this will also cost each family possibly $1,000 to $3,000 per year. We also have to look forward to the new Community Living Assistance Service and Support Act (Class Act). This will cost each paycheck earner $150-$250 per month starting in 2011. This you can verify at www.washingtontimes.com/news.2010/apr/01/robbingpeter-to-pay-pauls-heath-care/ Please don’t take my word for it, look it up! Food, gas, utilities are all getting more expensive. Maybe you have a budget that will stand up to this along with another 1% off the top of your income. With all this affecting every wage earner, I’m Sorry, but I vote, “NO NEW TAXES”! It does not matter how much the school system says they need the money, if we cannot afford to survive on our paycheck that we are now getting, with no hope of a raise, we just cannot afford this levy! People, what it is going to cost you in 2011 or 2012??? Thank you, Sally McCall Delphos
Obama likely to focus on deficit
WASHINGTON — Preparing for political life after a bruising election, President Barack Obama will put greater emphasis on fiscal discipline, a nod to a nation sick of spending and to a Congress poised to become more Republican, conservative and determined to stop him. He is already giving clues about how he will govern in the last two years of his term. Obama will try to make gains on deficit reduction, education and energy. He will enforce his health care and financial overhauls and try to protect them from repeal should Republicans win control of Capitol Hill. He will use executive authority when blocked by Congress, and steel for scrutiny and investigations if the GOP is in charge. While trying to save
economy but which Brown challenges. Most polls show the race a tossup or give Brown a slight edge. —In the race to succeed retiring Democratic Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, Republican front-runner Tom Corbett and Democratic rival Dan Onorato have clashed over who will better rein in state spending and a proposed tax on the state’s burgeoning natural gas industry. Onorato supports the tax, Corbett opposes it. Both have said they are willing to consider legislation to replace local school property taxes with an expanded state sales tax. —In Texas, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill White has accused appointees of Republican Gov. Rick Perry of pressuring Texas teacher retirement system managers to make potentially risky investments that gave state business to politically connected companies, an allegation Perry disputes. President Barack Obama is crossing the nation to stump for one Democratic governor or contender after another. It’s “absolutely critical” to elect Democratic governors as well as House and Senate members, he tells partisan audiences. of undermining what Obama is still campaigning hard to do: keeping Democrats in power. There is no conceding as Obama recruits voters and rallies supporters all the way to Nov. 2. Yet if polls and analysts are on target, Republicans are poised to win big, possibly taking control of the House and gaining seats in the Senate, where Obama’s party already lacks the votes to overcome bill-killing delay tactics. Obama probably will operate in an environment with even fewer moderate Republicans. The president has signaled that at the start of the new year, he will speak more directly to the country about the financial choices ahead. “If we’re going to get serious about the deficit, then we’re going to have to look at everything: entitlements, defense spending, revenues. ... And that’s going to be a tough conversation,” he said.

NEW YORK — Juan Williams has learned an important lesson: Beware the M-word. The former NPR analyst, fired from his radio job for an offhand remark he made about Muslims on the Fox News network, has become the latest victim of the thought police. What did he say? That he gets a little nervous when he sees people on airplanes in “Muslim garb.” Bzzzzzt. Off with his lips! And so Williams is no longer affiliated with NPR, though he did pick up a nice gig at Fox as compensation — a three-year contract worth $2 million or so. Williams’ ouster followed closely on the heels of Bill O’Reilly’s own public drumming on “The View,” the girl show where women of different decades discuss current events in various octaves that cannot be perceived by heterosexual males. There. How many people did I manage to offend with that facetious but true-ish description? O’Reilly had the effrontery to say that Muslims attacked us on 9/11. Bzzzzzt. Amid much screeching and fluster (female bluster), Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar stalked off the stage in protest. O’Reilly somehow managed to keep his job in spite of having said something true. But not completely true. What we have is a failure to qualify. In O’Reilly’s case, clearly he should have said “extremist Muslims” or “Muslim terrorists,” not simply Muslims, as he subsequently clarified. We’ve managed to evolve far enough in this country to understand that not all Muslims are guilty of attacking us, and that the other 1.6 billion neighborly Muslims shouldn’t be smeared along with the 19 evildoers who

hijacked airplanes. (Thanks be to George W. Bush for giving us permission to use the word “evildoers” anytime we feel like it.) Both Williams and O’Reilly may have failed to sufficiently qualify their statements in the moment, but neither deserved the outrage. The 9/11 attacks obviously were carried out by men who claimed to be committing mass murder/suicide for Allah. And, guess what? Lots of Americans suffer an involuntary free-associative moment when boarding an airplane alongside someone whose attire says, “Oh, by the way, I’m a serious-enough Muslim to dress in the way Allah commands,” but no worries. Perhaps we shouldn’t entertain those thoughts, but we do. Is it better that we air our fears and address them, or should we repress them and keep our prayers to ourselves? Wait. Let me rephrase that. Let’s do keep our prayers to ourselves, but let’s also speak openly about our fears. I’d happily wager that Williams said nothing that 99 percent of Americans haven’t thought to themselves. What might have followed that statement — far more useful than a sanctimonious public flogging — was the conversation we’re now having. Or at least that I’m having. Hello? That conversation might include asking the following questions: Why are we afraid of people in Muslim attire? Is that

rational? What can we do about it? How do we move beyond subconscious profiling? It is tough for mere humans to move beyond their natural — and sometimes logicbased — fears and prejudices. Sometimes fear keeps us alive; sometimes it creates unfair assumptions. Let’s talk about that. Let’s figure out how not to fear and smear people who are not like us, but with whom we must share the planet — and the plane. NPR officials had the right to fire Williams, but they clearly overreacted. But then, NPR (where I have many friends!) is the axis of sensitivity. People routinely sit at their desks in the lotus position and invariably get offended if you ask why they talk “that way.” Note: No stereotypes, no humor. O’Reilly’s statement was brasher and less sensitive than Williams’ — no surprise there — and the ladies’ foot-stomping tantrum was a bully’s fantasy: Oh, yes, please get really, really mad and stomp away and swear you’ll never speak to me again, especially when I’m on the phone with my banker. As Barbara Walters, the mature voice on the show, intoned: This was exactly what shouldn’t happen. Moral of the stories: We’ll get nowhere fast in our commendable search for equilibrium and tolerance by suppressing the expression of honest thoughts. Muslims didn’t attack us on 9/11 (see above); and most Americans struggle with fears that, though not irrational, do need to be reviewed with dispassion. If we suppress speech, we risk missing the great ideas that might emerge from the chaos of our less-careful thoughts.

Jays, Musketeers in for district matchup Vikings, Broncos
By JIM METCALFE
OTTOVILLE — All four teams in the Ottoville Division II girls soccer tourney still standing had faced each other before: St. John’s had beaten Ottoville 1-0 Oct. 12 and Fort Jennings had tied Continental Sept. 8; so one expected some hard-nosed play and great effort Saturday afternoon and evening. One would not have been disappointed. In the opener, the Lady Blue Jays needed a sudden-victory goal in the first overtime to down the Lady Big Green 1-0, while in the nightcap, with the lights turned on, the Lady Musketeers used the increasing wind to their advantage in building a 3-0 cushion and ended up downing the Lady Pirates 4-2. The winners play 7 p.m. Tuesday back in Ottoville. Even though the Jays (142-2) had dominated the shots on-goal 18-4 in regulation, senior Big Green keeper Nikki Kimmet was brilliant, coming up with 13 saves, thus forcing overtime. The Jays took the breeze to begin with and had a couple of chances — at 14:35, when senior Bailey Calvelage missed from in close; and 10:50, when senior Becca Saine fired from 28 yards but Kimmet got the stop. However, she could not come up with the goods at the 8:25 mark. Off a corner kick from the right side, senior Alyssa Berelsman lofted a beauty toward the far post that seemed to handcuff the keeper. She tried to knock it down while leaping but could not, with the orb ending up over the goal line for the match-winner. “That was a world-class goal; getting a goal off a corner is not an easy thing to do. We work on some plays off corners but that was great execution by Alyssa,” St. John’s coach John Munoz explained. “It took something like that for us to score today because (Kimmet) was brilliant. We had great looks and she made some great stops; she played like it was a tournament match. I felt we controlled the ball most of the time but just couldn’t break through.” Ottoville coach Kevin Krouskop agreed. “Without Nikki’s play ingoal, it never would’ve gone overtime. She played fantastic in goal today and has been steady for four years; you have to give credit to St. John’s for a great goal,” Krouskop observed. “Nikki is only one of three seniors we lose, along with Brooke (Miller) and Lynn (Beining) and I credit the effort today to their leadership. They have been great on the field and off with their example and desire to help the younger girls, which we have a lot of, come along.” The Jays used that wind in the first half to build up a 10-0 advantage on shots on-goal but Kimmet stopped every one of them. In particular, she made great saves at 36:21, when she came way off her line to deflect a 1-on-1 chance by Saine; at 26:03, when she denied senior Emma Boggs from 28 yards; 9:26, when she finally came up with a stop on a dangerous sequence in front of her goal; 4:09, when she made a leaping

On the other end, Saine deflection of a header by junior Courtney Grothouse; and 1:49, had an opening at 24:06 but a when she leapt to stave off a defender knocked it wide. 26-yard free kick by senior At 21:38, Grothouse was Alicia Ankerman. 1-on-1 with Kimmet but was The Lady Green (10-6-2) stopped by the keeper, The Jays had a great chance had a chance to get on the board at 30:14 when they made at the 9:23 to get on the board a foray deep into their offen- as junior Kristie Grothouse sive zone but senior keeper was inside the 6-yard box but Samantha Stant (2 saves) Kimmet again was there.

At 22;18, junior Mady Recker got a try from the right wing but hit the bar from 12 yards and the orb went out of bounds. Both teams then went back and forth until the 13:45 mark, when the Musketeers made it 3-0. Off a quick counter on a long kick by Von Lehmden (after a save), she found freshman Ashley Gable on a great run down the middle. Weller came off her line to deflect the first shot from 18 yards but the ball bounced to the left side, when senior Lauren Verhoff was wide open to put it back from 15 yards. The Pirates got that one back and seemed to get some momentum at the 6:31 mark. Bidlack, off a pass from senior Stephanie Coble, got a great look in front of the net. Her 15-yard laser slipped through Von Lehmden’s hands for a 3-1 scoreboard. However, the Orange and Black got that back and reassumed momentum at 1:26, courtesy of Verhoff. She took a pass from Macy Schroeder and went left to right from the wing from 16 yards. For Continental coach Toby Bidlack, those early goals were killers. “The first goal was just one of those plays. The second was just a well-placed ball,” he observed. “It’s tough to fall behind in the tournament, especially that quickly. The wind really hindered us the first half and they took advantage. I thought when we made it 3-1 we were OK but their fourth goal was huge.” With the wind at their backs the Second 40 minutes, the Pirates needed to score a bunch against a tough Musketeer defender. Von Lehmden made a stop at 34:10 on a 20-yarder from Coble. The Pirates reduced their deficit to 4-2 at 29:11. Coble made a pooch feed to Bidlack inside the box on the right post; her 14-yarder found the left side of the twine for a 4-2 scoreboard. However, the Musketeer defense began to take control and not allow many more chances for the Pirates to score. “This is our annual secondhalf surge. We don’t plan it that way; it just happens,” Wagner added. “During the summer and pre-season, we have so many girls in so many things. We don’t push it because of their involvements but we put a lot of stuff in. Slowly but surely, they get up to speed, especially the freshmen. All of it starts to kick in midway through the season.” At 19:38, freshman Kiana Warnement was stopped from 19 yards by Von Lehmden, the Pirates last real good look. The Musketeers had chances to widen their margin as well: at 18:13, when Macy Schroeder’s 15-yarder was deflected away; 15:27, when freshman Cassie Horstman’s shot from well out on the right side hit the bar and went over the top; and 9:00, when Schroeder was denied by Von Lehmden. “For us to do what we did, when you look at the talented seniors we lost from last year and the injuries we had this year, is amazing. We won matches we had ‘no business’ winning and tied teams most people thought we had no chance to do,” Bidlack added.

ST. MARYS — Skip Baughman Stadium in St. Marys has featured many a strong football team — and games — over the years. Sunday, the Tri-County Midget Football Association held its semifinal contests before the rains came. The Delphos Vikings and the St. Marys Broncos set up a finals showdown of unbeatens for next Sunday with victories, with the Vikings shredding the Columbus Grove Bulldogs (5-2) 22-6 and the Broncos (7-0) whipping the Delphos Reds (5-2) 24-8. The Vikings (7-0) took the opening kickoff and drove 58 yards in three plays to get on the board first. On 3rd-and-12 from the 40, Adam Rode (3-of-3 passing, 76 yards) threw a pass to the left side, finding Drew Reise; he caught the ball and was down the sideline all the way to the end zone. Reiss ran in the 2-pointer for an 8-0 lead with 5:45 left in the period. The Bulldogs replied by getting to the Vikings’ 34 but a fumble there was recovered by Hunter Binkley at the 32. They then took their good old time, running off 16 plays and 9:01 off the clock to reach paydirt. That included a 4th-and-4 conversion on a 9-yard run by Binkley (15 rushes, 68 yards) to keep the drive alive and a later 4th-and-2 conversion on a 4-yard run by Binkley. The finisher came at the Grove 15 when Binkley swept the right side, found the sideline and then the pylon. The 2-point pass failed for a 14-0 lead with 1:41 to go in the half. Neither team could put a scoring sequence together the rest of the half. Grove took the second-half kickoff, starting at the 47, and reached all the way to the Viking 1 in eight plays, However, on 4thand-goal, Andrew Nichols (12 rushes, 60 yards) was stuffed for no gain. However, the Vikings were forced to punt and a shank put the Bulldogs at the foes’ 20. Four plays hence at the 4, Nichols took a handoff off left guard and dove for the end zone. However, the conversion run failed for a 14-6 lead with just 7:10 remaining. It took just 15 seconds for Delphos to retaliate. Binkley grabbed the kickoff at the 40

Knights, Raiders sweep Jays, Big Green
By KEVIN WANNEMACHER Times Bulletin Writer RURAL MIDDLE POINT — Two weeks ago, the St. John’s volleyball team didn’t fare well in a straight-set loss to Crestview by scores of 25-12, 25-14 and 25-18 in Delphos. However, in Saturday’s Division IV sectional championship at Lincolnview High School, the Lady Blue Jays made things much more interesting before eventually falling to the Lady Knights. The Jays gave the Knights all they could handle but it was Crestview who held on for the 3-set victory. The Knights recorded a 25-21 win in set one before posting successive 25-23 victories in sets two and three. “We told the girls coming in that it wouldn’t be like the last time we played them,” noted Lady Knight head coach Tammy Gregory. “We knew it would be a battle and Delphos St. John’s gave us all they had. We expected nothing less from them as coaches and warned the girls of that.” The balance of Crestview’s attack proved pivotal as did the Knight defense, which seemed to never allow a ball to hit the floor the whole match. “Their defense is superb,” noted St. John’s head coach Kellie Sterling. “They get to every ball it seems like and give you nothing easily. Crestview does a great job of being in the right spots no matter what and they just play fundamentally sound volleyball. They don’t make mistakes and they jump on any little mistake you make.” The Knights got out quick in set one, opening an 11-4 lead early on. St. John’s never got closer than four points until late in the set, when the Blue Jays made one final push. Trailing 22-18, a kill by Shelby Reindel and a pair of Knight hitting errors allowed them to get within 22-21. Then came the rally of the match, seemingly taking several minutes, before a block for a point by Mekale Clifton shifted the momentum completely to Crestview. The Lady Knights then closed the set with a pair of Taylor Springer kills for a 25-21 victory. “Game one was tight and then they were able to get that big point when we had a chance to tie it on that long rally,” noted Sterling. “That was a big momentum-changer and they took advantage of it.” Set two went back and forth for the most part, with neither team ever leading by more than four. With the set tied at 21-21, the Blue Jays got a Tiffany Geise kill before a Knight slam that went wide put St. John’s on top 23-21. However, Crestview would rally. Jessica Burger and Danica Hicks traded kills before Burger sealed the win with two more slams to give the Knights a 25-23 victory. “The girls did a good job of battling all night long and St. John’s played really well today,” Gregory continued. “But our girls kept fighting and that rally at the end of the second set was critical for us.” The Knights appeared to have the third set in hand, leading by as much as 23-15 late. However, the Blue Jays recorded two kills and a block for a point by Giese along with a Gabby Metzner block for a point to get them within 24-23. Crestview, though, answered with a Kirstin Hicks slam to wrap up the straightset win. “I am so proud of the effort the girls gave today,” Sterling commented. “We had four great seniors and we will miss them next year. They did a tremendous job this season.” Closing their careers in Blue Jay volleyball uniforms were Geise (13 kills), Katie Wallenhorst (1 kill, 1 ace), Metzner and Melanie Mansfield. Reindel finished the day with 18 kills. Emily Horstman (2 kills, 1 ace) and Heather Vogt (1 kill) aided the Blue Jay cause. St. John’s finishes with a record of 9-15. Springer ended with 17 kills on the day with Burger chipping in 14. Danica Hicks (5 kills, 1 ace), Sammi Schneider (4 kills), Kirstin Hicks (8 kills), Taylor Hamrick (1 ace) and Clifton (1 kill) aided the Knight cause. The Lady Knights (20-3) will now battle St. Henry (185) in the district semifinals

and started up the right side. He fought through tacklers, slid to the left side and outraced the coverage unit to the end zone. Jace Stockwell ran in the 2-pointer for a 22-6 edge. A Grove fumble in Viking territory, recovered by Tyler Bratton, and a later pick by Stockwell ended all hopes of a Bulldog comeback. In the second semifinal, the Reds stopped the Broncos on the opening drive and commenced at the 33. A 6-play drive put them on the board first. At the St. Marys 13, quarterback Tim Kreeger pitched to Aaron Reindel (11 carries, 84 yards) to the right side, who then threw back to Kreeger wide open on the left side for the score.

Tri-County harriers headed to regionals
By CHARLIE WARNIMONT Delphos Herald Correspondent OTTAWA — Three teams and two individuals survived the first weekend of the cross country post-season to advance to regionals. Columbus Grove’s boys and girls teams and the Kalida girls team, along with Ottoville’s Shayla Siefker and Brianna Rodriguez, all earned spots in next Saturday’s regionals from the district meet at Ottawa Memorial Park Saturday. All of the qualifiers, except the Grove girls, advance to regional competition at Tiffin, while the Grove girls will compete at Troy. The regional starts with the Division III boys at 11:05 a.m. The Kalida girls continued their strong season by earning their first trip to regionals as a team, advancing with a third-place finish in the Division III, District 1 race. Kalida finished with 126 points. Liberty Center won the district title with 56 points and Bluffton was second with 96 points. Ottoville missed out on advancing as they finished fifth with 152 points, seven points behind fourth-place Pettisville. Sophomore Jessica Doepker led the Wildcats with a fifth-place individual finish in 19:05. Fellow sophomore Summer Holtkamp was 24th in 21:29, while senior Sam Edwards finished 31st in 2:56, junior Amanda Giesige was 35th in 22:06 and freshman Katelyn Kortokrax was 39th in 22:17. Junior Deanna Kahle was 40th in 22:24 and sophomore Katie Schmitz was 64th in 24:48. “It will be a new experience for us. We are looking forward to it,” Kalida coach Rob Schnippel said. “We didn’t run our best race today but we did have some personal bests with some of our runners. We fielded a full team today and its coming together for us. We didn’t get out to a good start today but we steadily picked it up throughout the race and kept picking up positions.” Having qualified as a team to state the past two seasons, the Lady Big Green were looking to make it three in a row. Although that streak ended, the Big Green advanced two individuals in seniors Siefker and Rodriguez. Siefker won the District 1 race in 19:05.1 as she held off Liberty Center sophomore Kelly Haubert down the stretch for the win. Haubert finished in 19:05.7. Siefker’s time was a personal record for the senior. The second Ottoville girl to advance was Rodriguez as she finished 16th in 20:53 to capture the final individual qualifying spot in her race. “Shayla had her best time of the season at 19:05,” Ottoville coach Bob Kaple said. “She had to sprint in there to beat the Liberty Center runner but she has always been a strong finisher as she was the anchor on two relays in track. And Brianna had her best time of the season and was close to her career PR. The girls missed by seven points of making the top four. We have had a lot of injuries this year and just were not able to overcome them like we were in the past two seasons.” Senior Brooke Bendele finished 29th Saturday in 21:44, while senior Emilee Byrne was 47th in 23:16, senior Kristin Schweller was 67th in 25:05 and sophomore Amy Looser was 68th in 25:08. Sophomore Kara Hoersten finished 86th in 28:28. Columbus Grove’s girls team grabbed a regional bid as they finished third in the Division III, District II race with 84 points. Fairview won the team title with 42 points and Lima Central Catholic was second with 74 points. The Lady Bulldogs were led by junior Amber Herron with a sixthplace finish in 21:05.8. Freshman Kayla Parlette finished 15th in 21:56 and senior Nikki Ricker
the first period. Reindel had a 49-yard run on the drive. The Broncos answered right away with a 5-play, 65-yard journey. A 25-yard run by Randy Slife (11 rushes, 51 yards) was the big play on the way. At the Delphos 34, Logan Maze (3-of-6 passing, 48 yards) threw to the right side for Eric Spicer (2 grabs, 44 yards). He beat tight coverage to grab the ball at the 20 and finished it off in the end zone. Eddie Reier (15 rushes, 60 yards) tied it up with the 2-point conversion at the 1:06 mark of the first. The Broncos got the ball back on a fumble recovery by Boston Hammons at the Reds’ 46, only to see Stockwell pick off a pass by Maze on the very next play at the 30.
finished 18th in 22:11, while junior Cece Utendorf was 39th in 23:22 and senior Cora Diller was 40th in 23:33. Freshman Micah Stechschulte was 52nd in 25:08 and freshman Brooke Schnipke was 61st in 27:05. Columbus Grove’s boys team continued its strong season as they finished third in the boys Division III, District II race with 77 points. Hilltop won the team title with 44 points and Coldwater was second with 58 points. Ottoville’s boys season came to an end as they finished seventh with 160 points and Kalida finished ninth in 250 points. The Grove boys were led by sophomore Jake Graham as he finished third in 16:36. Senior Kurt Meyer had a strong finish to his day with a 14th-place finish in 17:25 and sophomore Alex Shafer was 16th in 17:26. Senior Devin Luginbill was 19th in 17:52 and sophomore Grant Schroeder was 25th in 18:11. Senior Jacob Schroeder was 42nd in 18:50 and sophomore Troy Meyer was 49th in 19:04. “They ran an excellent race today,” Columbus Grove coach Terry Schnipke said. “We had some good performances. Jake finished third about five seconds off his PR. We had three other guys that PR’d in Kurt Meyer, Alex Schafer and Grant Schroeder. They ran well. I had us figured about third coming in and that’s where we finished. I told them it would be nice to get a Coldwater or Hilltop and get a trophy but it’s great to advance and see what happens at the regionals.” The Ottoville boys were running well midway through the race but dropped off in the second part of the race to fall out of the contention to advance. Junior Jason Turnwald finished 27th to lead the Big Green in 18:17.4 and senior Tyler Turnwald was 28th in 18:17.9. Sophomore Bevly D’angelo was 31st in 18;23, while senior Andy Foster was 36th in 18:30. Junior Seth Bendele was 38th in 18:35, senior Taylor Gasser was 51st in 19:15 and sophomore Jacob Turnwald was 77th in 20:48. “The boys were in good shape at the 2-mile mark but they just kind of backed up from there. They didn’t have enough left to finish. They have a tendency of going out hard at the beginning of the race instead of pacing themselves for the entire race,” Kaple said. Kalida was led by junior Connor Schmenk as he finished 33rd in 18:26. Junior Neil Gerding was 39th in 18:38, junior Jared Zeller was 59th in 19:31, while sophomores Joel Zeller was 66th in 19:44 and Jordan Wurth was 19:46. Junior Levi Blake was 90th in 23:18. SPENCERVILLE: The Spencerville girls and boys cross country teams advanced to the Troy Regional next Saturday (11:05 a.m. start) after finishing second and fourth, respectively, at the Division III district meet at Spencerville High School. The Bearcats had individual winners on both sides: junior Kelli Ley won the girls race (19:53) and senior Kevin Lenhart took first in the boys (16:34). The St. John’s teams only had one runner advance to next week: freshman Lady Jay Megan Joseph, who nabbed seventh place (20:27). The top performer for the boys was Jason Michel (19:25) who ended up 46th. The Lincolnview units finished sixth (girls) and eighth (boys) to end their season. With the top 16 individuals staying around for another week, the 20th-place finish by freshman Kerri Grothaus (21:27), the top Lady Lancer; and the 26th-place finish for freshman Ben Bilimek (18:12), the boys top runner on the day, wasn’t good enough.
at Coldwater High School on Tuesday in the second match. Wayne Trace (16-7) takes on top-ranked Marion Local (221) in the opener of the night. That is because the Lady Raiders bumped off Ottoville in the second match of the afternoon at Lincolnview. Wayne Trace fell behind early on in each of its three sets with Ottoville Saturday afternoon in Division IV sectional volleyball action at Lincolnview High School and rallied each time to sneak out a 25-22, 26-24 and 25-22 victory over the Lady Big Green. If the Raiders do that on Tuesday, things won’t quite be so easy for them. The challenge is a great one as the Raiders will face the Lady Flyers; the only victory the Flyers have needed more than the minimum sets was Saturday’s victory over Minster. Cincinnati Mother of Mercy, a D-I school, gave the Flyers their only loss of the season. On Saturday, Sarah Feasby had 14 kills to lead the Lady Raiders to the victory. While it was a straight set win, it was far from easy.

Online TV spats mean fewer free shows on Web
By RYAN NAKASHIMA The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Broadcasters took a big step toward eliminating free TV shows on the Web after they blocked access to their programming online this month to enforce their demands to be paid. Recent actions by Fox, ABC, NBC and CBS in two separate fee disputes suggest that after a few years of experimenting with free, ad-supported viewing, broadcasters believe they can make more money from cable TV providers if they hold back some programming online. That could mean new limits on online viewing are coming: Broadcasters might make fewer of their shows available to begin with, or delay when they become available — say, a month after an episode is broadcast, rather than the few hours it typically takes now. It would make it tougher for viewers to drop their cable TV subscriptions and watch shows online instead. If cable and satellite TV providers can hang on to more subscribers, broadcasters can then demand more money from them to carry their stations on the lineups. Last weekend, News Corp.’s Fox made TV programming history by blocking online access to its shows, including “Glee” to 2.6 million Cablevision Systems Corp. broadband Internet subscribers. It was part of a fee dispute over how much Cablevision pays to carry the signals of Fox-owned TV stations. At around the same time, ABC, NBC and CBS turned off access to full episodes when accessed from the new Google TV Web browser, which became available this month. Both actions sent the message that broadcasters are demanding to be paid for their shows wherever they are seen — just as new devices are making it easier to watch those shows on regular TV

sets. “Basically, they’re trying to work hard to ensure that ’cord-cutting’ is not an attractive option anymore,” said analyst Derek Baine of research firm SNL Kagan, referring to the phenomenon of people cutting their cable subscriptions and catching shows online to save money. BTIG Research analyst Rich Greenfield put it more bluntly in a blog post on Monday. “Consumers must be made to realize that nothing is free anymore,” he wrote. Fox’s tactic wasn’t entirely successful. It inadvertently drew into the dispute the Cablevision Internet customers who got their TV feeds from other companies such as DirecTV Inc. Fox abandoned its Internet blockade after about 12 hours following protests from several lawmakers, including Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., a senior member on a House subcommittee that oversees technology and the Internet.

‘Paranormal’ follow-up scares $41.5M out of fans
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fear has taken hold at the box office with a $41.5 million debut for scary movie “Paranormal Activity 2,” according to studio estimates Sunday. Paramount Pictures’ follow-up to last year’s microbudgeted hit “Paranormal Activity” got a jump on Halloween as fans packed theaters for another documentary-style thriller about a household plagued by a menacing spirit. “Paranormal Activity 2” did nearly half its business on Friday, following the pattern of many fright-flick franchises, which often draw big crowds on opening day then drop off sharply. The movie took in $20.1 million Friday, with receipts falling to $13 million Saturday and $8.4 million Sunday. The first “Paranormal Activity” rolled out gradually from city to city in a stealthmarketing campaign that built the buzz for the independently produced thriller that was shot for less than $15,000.

By the time the movie went into nationwide release, it had turned into a horror sensation that went on to become a $100 million hit. Paramount also had the No. 2 movie with the stunt comedy “Jackass 3D,” which opened in first place the previous weekend. “Jackass 3D” pulled in $21.6 million, down sharply from its $50 million opening. But the movie raised its 10-day total to $87.1 million, more than either of the earlier two “Jackass” movies took in during their entire runs.

Annie: Be strong chicky; let him go
By Bernice Bede Osol
Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2010 In the next solar cycle, you are likely to get involved in an exciting endeavor where you will be transforming what was outmoded into being something that is useful. It will prove to be a huge growth possibility. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - If you wish to captivate people, speak from the heart and include everyone in your conversations, and you’ll find listeners will sit up and take notice. People hear what involves them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - When trying to negotiate an important financial matter, let the other guy do most of the selling. Once the person has talked him/herself out, you’ll know exactly how to get what you want. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Be nice to all of your peers, because you never know from where good things might arise. Your greatest benefits are likely to come through arrangements that involve two or more friends. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Developments that have been bummers could do an about-face and produce some very pleasant surprises. Don’t negatively prejudge anything. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - Your possibilities for success are stronger than they have been in a long time. Some situations that you thought were no-wins will instead produce some decent results.

‘Emerald City’ fighting over ‘green’ protections
By PHUONG LE The Associated Press SEATTLE — Towering Douglas Firs and lush urban parks helped earn Seattle the nickname Emerald City, so it’s not surprising that felling a tree can prompt heated responses. A judge was fined $500,000 for cutting down more than 120 cherry and maple trees in a city park for better views, and residents fought for years to save a mature grove of 100 Douglas firs from being cleared for development.
Tree lovers are now fighting proposed city rules that would remove current protections for large, exceptional trees, and do not include a requirement that property owners get a permit to remove a tree. “We’re the Emerald City because of the trees,” said Cass Turnbull, founder of PlantAmnesty, a Seattle-based nonprofit, who favors a permit system as a way to slow down tree-cutting and give people pause. “Trees grow here very easily so we tend to take them for granted.”
Answers to Saturday’s questions: British soccer star David Beckham’s injured foot was responsible for making metatarsal an everyday word. Beckham broke a metatarsal on the eve of the 2002 World Cup — single-footedly killing England’s hope of victory. Media coverage of his injury resulted in metatarsal being named “word of the year” by the Oxford English Dictionary. Sir Isaac Newton was pictured in the very first Apple Computer logo. The logo was only used for the Apple I. It was immediately replaced with the rainbow-colored apple with a bite taken out of it. Today’s questions: According to culinary legend, what pasta was inspired by the belly button of Roman Goddess Venus? What change was made in the title of the Jane Austen classic “Pride and Prejudice” when Bollywood produced a musical version in 2004? Answers in Tuesday’s Herald. Today’s words: Crinigerous: overgrown with hair Rebec: three-stringed ancestor of the violin
