Educators respond to voucher bill
BY MIKE FORD firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — Any time government experiments with new ideas, not knowing the formational changes to occur can cause a stir. Republicans in the Ohio legislature are pushing to use taxpayer dollars to help more parents send their children to private or charter schools. Though the way this could change education remains to be seen, Delphos City Schools Superintendent Jeff Price is concerned it would open a “Pandora’s box” of problems. “We have a changing landscape in education and we don’t know exactly what things are going to look like. Locally, we have two quality school systems and you can’t go wrong with either but this could open up new forms of schools based on a variety of beliefs,” he said. “St. John’s is a long-standing institution and has been a good school for a very long time. What I wouldn’t want to see is startup schools that have very little oversight and are just experimenting with any kind of education theory that may be out there and are taking public dollars to experiment with it. “The question is: Do we want to direct our tax dollars to those things? In the current system, school choice may not look like a bad thing but when we open that door, there may be some people and organizations on the other side who want to set up a school for profit or not-for-profit but I would be leery of for-profit. What I don’t want to see is what we have in higher education, where the elite schools charge just about anything they want with this ideal on the surface that they offer a better quality education. So, kids with parents who can afford those universities are the only ones who can attend them. In that kind of system, the Harvards, Stanfords can charge whatever they want and there is some concern that school choice could take us in that direction. So, there would have to be some caps on what schools can charge.” Price thinks Ohio is a long way from entrepreneurialdriven education models becoming widespread but one of the officials behind the legislation said it is possible. Fourth District Representative Matt Huffman has proposed a bill in the

Delphos, Ohio that choices are so restricted. When government artificially oppresses the market, you have fewer choices and when government does that with any goods or services, that causes quality to go down and prices to go up. If there are more choices available in any situation, the quality goes up and prices go down — parents want the best education available at an affordable price,” he said. “Fifty years ago, there were a lot more private schools than there are now. There was a Catholic school in Ottawa, one in Celina and we had three in Lima in 1955 but they couldn’t compete with the fact that the public schools were getting so much money from the government and they eventually went out of business.” Families must live in a public district deemed as a “failing school” to get a tuition voucher. Huffman’s bill calls for using income as the eligibility requirement instead. “This creates a different way of evaluating eligibility from the failing school method to a true needs-based method because as it is now, some folks who can afford tuition are getting vouchers and this is what most people complain about,” he said. St. John’s Elementary Principal Nathan Stant welcomes the opportunity to educate more children, especially those of Catholic families that cannot afford private education. “My belief is that people who desire Catholic education should have that choice and this would give some who are financially-burdened that choice. We’re already losing that money in the Catholic schools because that family doesn’t have that choice — they have to go to the public schools,” he said. “The money would follow the students and that’s the only money that would be channeled away from the public school. If a family chooses a private school or a charter school, the per-pupil allocation to the public schools is the only money they would lose and it wouldn’t be the same amount allocated for the private school. Even the highest amount on a sliding scale in the current house bill is less than the money allocated for the private school, so it would cost the taxpayer less money.”

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin officials couldn’t agree Friday about whether an explosive law taking away nearly all public worker collective bargaining rights was about to take effect after a nonpartisan legislative bureau published it despite a court order blocking implementation. The head of the Legislative Reference Bureau that made the move, as well as a nonpartisan attorney for the Legislature, said the action was merely procedural. But Republican legislative leaders, who encouraged the bureau’s action, insisted it meant law would take effect Saturday. Gov. Scott Walker’s office, meanwhile, would issue only a vague statement saying simply that the administration planned to carry out the law as required. The move is just the latest in a series of parliamentary and legal maneuvers employed over the past six weeks to enact a bill that prompted Senate Democrats to flee the state to block a vote and brought on waves of Capitol protests that grew larger than 85,000 people as Wisconsin became the center of a national fight over union rights. Ultimately, the law’s fate likely will be up to the state Supreme Court to decide. A state appeals court earlier in the week asked the Supreme Court to take up one of several lawsuits challenging its approval. The latest chaos began Friday after the Legislative Reference Bureau published the law at 3:15 p.m. Bureau director Steve Miller said the action doesn’t mean the law takes effect today. He says that won’t actually happen until Secretary of State Doug La Follette orders the law published in a newspaper, and a judge ordered last week that La Follette not do anything. “It’s not implementation at all,” Miller said. “It’s simply a matter of forwarding an official copy to the secretary of state.”

DELPHOS — Generally speaking, anyone can write fiction. Writing fiction someone actually wants to read and getting it published is another matter entirely. Janice Romes, of Fort Jennings, recently received validation as a writer when she was notified that her short story, “Square Pot, Round Lid,” would be featured in the May 12 issue of Woman’s World Magazine and her book, “Kiss Me,” was to be published in eBook form in April of 2012. “It’s extremely difficult to get a book published in actual print, I’m told,” Romes said. “They prefer you have an agent and I don’t. You don’t need an agent to publish an eBook. I’m hoping that having an eBook out will make it easier to get published in print one day.” Romes, who really buckled down and began writing in 1996, leans more toward the romantic comedy genre.
“The first thing I wrote was a piece of historical fiction, set back in the 1800s and while I really love that period, lately I’ve been getting more into contemporary fiction,” she said. “The first time I knew I wanted to write romantic comedies was when I was on vacation at Myrtle Beach with my daughter, Kelly. She brought books to read and she was reading this one by Nora Roberts and kept laughing out loud. I thought, ‘that’s what I want to write’.” Success in writing fiction is rarely an overnight occurrence. A writer must
find his or her niche, then hone their work into something worth submitting. Then there is the inevitable rejection from publishers. “Rejection is horrible but it’s just a part of it. I printed off this article once about how to deal with rejection,” Romes laughed. “It tells you about all of the great novels and how many times they were rejected before someone published them. Books like ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ and ‘Gone With the Wind’.” Romes says it has also helped her to commune with other writers in her genre. “I’m a member of Romance Writers of America and I’m part of the Gotham Writers’ Workshop,” she said. “In the workshop, you’re required to critique other writers’ works and let them do the same. You make friends, too. I have two friends I talk to pretty regularly, from Massachusetts and Maryland. In fact I Skype’d with the one from Maryland just this morning.” “There are all kinds of
workshops and conventions you can attend and rub elbows with a lot of other writers,” she added. “They have entire workshops dedicated to helping you with plot and outline. I don’t do much outlining myself, just jot down a few key points and refer back to them to keep myself on track. As for inspiration, I get it from a lot of different things. You can turn anything into a story. When you’re writing a love story, it’s just important to remember to keep that conflict present throughout, before it’s resolved in the end.” Romes, a mother of two, lives with her husband, Bill, in Fort Jennings. Formerly an employee of Ohio Power, she quit in 2006 and is now a full-time writer. “I’ve always been a daydreamer and I’ve always wanted to write,” she said. “It’s really the main reason I got my computer. I finally decided I didn’t have anything to lose. I didn’t want to wake up one day and wish I’d done this.”

There doesn’t seem to be a lot to be cheerful about lately. The economy is in the tank, unemployment is at an all-time high, people continue to lose their jobs, their homes, their pride and their self-respect. The rest of the world is not better off. Japan has lost more than 10,000 and thousands more are missing and presumed dead. Nuclear plants are at critical levels, they have little food, water and options. We have to look harder and harder to find something positive to talk about. Well, quit it. Stop moping around and find comfort in what you do have. If you still have a job — be thankful. Lots of other people don’t. If you still have your home — be thankful. Lots of other people don’t. If you sat down to dinner at the table last night and left with a full belly — be thankful. More people than you can imagine didn’t. If you got up and out of bed today — be thankful. Many people didn’t or can’t. If you got to hug your kid(s), spouse and/or other family-type people today — be thankful. Many people didn’t get that opportunity because they are away, estranged or have lost them.

There are oodles of things we have to be thankful for if we take the time to find them. I am thankful for all the above and more. As you read this, I’m probably snoozing because I worked last night. I’m in a warm bed with clean sheets and I will awaken and frantically throw on clothes and take Little Ringo out because I have this fear that as soon as the paws hit the floor, it’s on.

VERMILION (AP) — A man trying to get into the Army lost 63 pounds in less than four months — an extreme diet that helped lead to his death — and the Army says it is now investigating his mother’s allegation that military recruiters had coached him on how to shed weight. Glenni “Glenn” Wilsey V, of Vermilion, had started losing weight before he talked to recruiters in December and died earlier this month, 7 pounds short of his goal. The Army said it couldn’t comment on whether recruiters advised the 20-year-old on his weight-loss regimen. But Wilsey’s mother, Lora Bailey, said her son told her he was following recruiters’ advice, including self-induced vomiting. She said she pleaded with him to stop the extreme dieting. “He’d say, ‘Mom, these guys know what they’re talking about.’ He believed what the recruiters were telling him over what I was telling him,” she said. Bailey told The Associated Press on Friday that her son once weighed as much as 280 pounds but had trimmed down to about 260 by December when he contacted recruiters and started dieting in earnest. He had enlisted Feb. 11, but his weight delayed his deployment. He weighed 197 pounds at the time of his death. Bailey told The Associated Press that she wasn’t blaming the individual recruiters but felt the Army’s weight goals were at fault and wants the issue addressed to protect future recruits. Lorain County Coroner Dr. Paul Matus blamed Wilsey’s March 3 death on an irregular heartbeat due to electrolyte imbalance with a contributing factor of dieting. The Army investigation was ordered by the commander of the Cleveland Recruiting Battalion. Douglas Smith, spokesman for the Army Recruiting Command headquarters in Fort Knox, Ky., said Friday the matter was under investigation. He expressed condolences to the family but said he couldn’t comment in detail.

COLUMBUS — Each year, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is forced to spend $4 million on litter pick-up…a preventable problem. . Statewide last year, ODOT spent $4.4 million and 206,221 hours picking up 392,305 bags of trash. Each March, ODOT organizes cleanup events around the state as part of the annual Great American Cleanup. ODOT’s more than 1,400 Adopt-A-Highway groups – at least one in each of Ohio’s 88 counties – clean a twomile section, or interchange, a minimum of four times a year for two years. On average each year, Adopt-AHighway volunteers pick up 25,000 bags of trash, saving the Department $280,000. Adopt a section of highway or an interchange at .transportation.ohio.gov

OUNCE Of PREVENTION
Colon cancer: What you should know, how to prevent it or find it early, and where to turn for help Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death among men and women in the US – yet it can sometimes be prevented or detected when it is small and treatment is highly effective. This month is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, so learn the facts and get tested. It could save your life. About 49,920 people are estimated to have died from colorectal cancer, commonly called colon cancer, this past year. That’s a number the American Cancer Society is working to reduce. The Society recommends adults age 50 and older get tested for the disease. People with colon cancer in their families may need to start getting tested when they are younger. Both men and women are at risk, and 90 percent of cases are diagnosed in people older than 50. Many people may be afraid of getting tested – yet the test can save your life. There are several different screening tests available. Some tests can find both cancer and polyps, which are small growths on the lining of the colon or rectum that could lead to cancer. Finding and removing polyps before they become cancerous can stop colon cancer before it starts. For this reason, these tests are preferred if they are available to you and you’re willing to have them. These tests include colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, double-contrast barium enema, and CT colonography (also called virtual colonoscopy). Other colon cancer tests are less invasive and easier to have done than the ones listed above, but they mainly find cancer and are less likely to find polyps. These involve testing the stool (feces) for blood or other signs that cancer may be present. They include a fecal occult blood test, fecal immunochemical test, and the stool DNA test. If something abnormal is found during one of these tests, you will need a colonoscopy to check it out. Talk to your doctor about which test is right for you. Anyone who is at increased risk for colon cancer should talk with a doctor about more frequent testing. If colon cancer is found early, the survival rate is 90 percent. Yet only 40 percent of colon cancers are found at an early stage. For colon cancer found later, the five-year survival rate is much lower. Don’t wait for signs or symptoms to go to the doctor – get tested today and help prevent colon cancer before it starts. For more information about colon cancer, call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org. We’re here 24 hours a day with information and support. We want to help you stay well. Don’t wait – talk to your doctor today about what cancer screening tests are right for you. The American Cancer Society can help cancer patients and their loved ones get well by helping them overcome obstacles in their personal fight. For more information about how the American Cancer Society can help you, your family, and co-workers get well or stay well by reducing your risk of cancer, call us at 1-800227-2345, or visit cancer.org/ colon. Quick Tips One of the most powerful weapons in preventing colon cancer is regular testing. Testing can stop this disease before it starts. For more information about colon cancer, call your American Cancer Society at 1-800-2272345 or visit us online at cancer.org. We are here to help you stay well. If you or someone you know has been affected by cancer, you can count on the American Cancer Society for accurate information. We can help you make informed decisions and support you and your loved ones during this difficult time. Call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org. Colon cancer is preventable if precancerous polyps are found and removed. And if colon cancer is found and treated at an early stage, there is a 90 percent five-year survival rate. Yet only 40 percent of colon cancer cases are diagnosed at an early, localized stage. To learn more about colon cancer, call your American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or visit us online at cancer.org. We want to help you stay well. African Americans have the highest colorectal cancer rates and the highest rate of death from the disease of any racial group in the US. Learn more about what you can do to reduce your risk of colon cancer by calling the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or visiting us online at cancer.org. We are here to help you stay well. You can reduce your risk of colon cancer by quitting tobacco, maintaining a healthy body weight, eating lots of fruits and vegetables, limiting alcohol and the amount of red and processed meat that you eat, and becoming more physically active. For more information about colon cancer, call your American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or visit us online at cancer.org. Recipes You can reduce your risk of colon cancer by maintaining a healthy body weight, eating lots of fruits and vegetables, and limiting the consumption red and processed meats. These recipes will help your members kick start a healthy March, which is National Colon Cancer Awareness Month!
Faber announces increased dredging to begin at Grand Lake St. Marys
COLUMBUS — State Senator Keith Faber announced today that increased dredging at Grand Lake St. Marys will soon take place in an effort to remove phosphorus-laden sediment that is contributing to water-quality issues at the lake. An amendment providing $750,000 to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) for the dredging and related disposal was included as part of the state Transportation budget that was approved by the Senate yesterday. “Grand Lake St. Marys is a tremendous asset to our region, and it is crucial that we take corrective steps now to help avoid the algae blooms and toxin outbreaks that inhibited peoples’ ability to enjoy the lake for much of last year,” Faber said. “I applaud ODNR Director Mustine for working to get this amendment included in the transportation budget so that dredging can begin as soon as possible and we can move forward on our efforts to clean up the lake.” Last year, high levels of algal toxins and large bluegreen algae blooms caused advisories to be issued cautioning people from touching the water or consuming fish caught in the lake. The additional dredging was one of several improvement actions announced earlier this year by Ohio Governor John Kasich and the directors of ODNR, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and the Ohio Department of Agriculture to improve the lake’s water quality. “We welcome any additional assistance in addressing the water quality challenges facing Grand Lake St. Marys,” said ODNR Director David Mustine. “Governor Kasich recognizes how vital this popular recreational lake is to the local economy and appreciates the efforts of Senator Faber and many others who are pulling together to return the lake to a healthier state.” Besides the additional dredging, other actions being implemented by the agencies include using granular alum to help inactivate excess phosphorus in the lake, installing water treatment equipment and removing fish species that are believed to stir up the bottom sediment, releasing more phosphorus. Grand Lake St. Marys was constructed in the mid-1800s to store water for the MiamiErie Canal and is Ohio’s largest inland lake.

Rain barrels available at the SWCD
The Van Wert Soil & Water Conservation District now has rain barrels available to purchase. The rain barrels are a 55-gallon recycled foodgrade barrel with a spigot, drain plug, a 1 1/4-inch outlet that fills the system quickly and installs easily, and 3’ flexible hose to connect to the diverter. A winterizing cap is also included. The barrel will work with 2x3, 3x4, and 3-inch round downspouts. The only thing needed to install the rain barrel is to drill into the downspout and connect the diverter. What is a rain barrel? A rain barrel is an above ground container that collects and stores rainwater from downspouts and rooftops for future uses such as watering lawns, gardens and planters. The rain barrel is filled by routing your downspout into the barrel and allowing it to harvest the natural rain water. The rain water can then be used for your plants by attaching a hose to the included spigot. Why use a rain barrel? You will have a supply of free natural rain water to use around your home or garden. Collecting rain water reduces run-off, which reduces nutrient and sediment loads in our rivers and streams. Rain water is FREE! You are saving money by collecting natural rain water to use around your home. Help save plants and
newly planted trees in times of drought. Its responsible conservation and a “green” alternative! Helpful hints: If a lawn sprinkler is run on a full flow for 30 minutes approximately 140-160 gallons of water will be used. A half-inch of rain fall on a 1,000 square-foot roof can yield approximately 310 gallons of water. Winter storage—remember to completely empty your rain barrel and use winter cap to prevent water accumulation which could freeze and crack the barrel. The Rain Barrels are available at the Van Wert SWCD office, 1185 Professional Drive, Van Wert, and are being sold for $50.

“Make voyages. Attempt them. There’s nothing else.” — Tennessee Williams, American playwright (1911-1983)
Book reports were not among my favorite assignments in high school. Maybe it was the books we were assigned to read. I always enjoyed reading the Nancy Drew books but they were not included for book reports. Recently I read “The Place on Jennings Creek” by Leslie C. Peltier, sometimes referred to our most famous Delphos resident. I felt the urge to inform everyone in Delphos and our area about this fascinating person and their home on the Jennings Creek. In wider circles, Peltier is known as “the most famous amateur astronomer in America.” He even has a comet named for him. As a youth he became interested in nature and science, particularly in astronomy, in which field he has discovered and co-discovered 12 new comets and two Novae and has made some 130,000 observations of variable stars. At age 5, he watched his first remembered stars, the Pleiades, through the east window of their kitchen window on the farm. Five years later, through that same window he saw the shimmering form of Halley’s Comet, just before dawn in May 1910. My curiosity was aroused about the book when Jack Adams and his wife purchased this beautiful Peltier home on Bredeick Street in Delphos. They are considering making it into a bed and breakfast. How wonderful! It would be a wonderful “resort” to sit and relax and enjoy nature. Out of town visitors could enjoy that while they take in the Miami-Erie Canal, The Delphos Canal Commission Museum, The Postal Museum, The Lincoln Highway, our Veterans Memorial, our beautiful churches and the many other points of interest in Delphos. This book is filled with interesting bits of information on nature and science. My grandson, Nolan, was approached by one of the FJHS teachers, “Mrs. A” who asked “Does your grandma have anything on Leslie Peltier?” She wanted to introduce him to her students. Naturally, I was pleased to respond to her wishes. I have the above mentioned book and an autographed copy of his autobiography “Starlight Nights.” I could also send along several articles on this famous gentleman. The Delphos Public Library has a huge three ring binder on Leslie Peltier. When Mrs. A returned the

IT WAS NEWS THEN
Motorcycles Collide With Cows Three Delphos people, one young man and two young ladies, were injured when, east of Delphos on the Gomer road, the motorcycles on which they were riding, ran into a herd of cows and the riders were thrown off the machines. Six couples of Delphos young people were enjoying the evening riding about the country, when near the river on Gomer road, a herd of cows grazing along the highway, started to cross the road. Several of the machines struck the cows and the occupants were thrown off. Herbert Foust and Miss Irene O’Donnell sustained painful injuries. Foust’s injuries were quite serious and he was brought to the office of Dr. Hartnagel in Delphos where he received attention. Miss Bertha Honigfort, who was riding on a machine with Wykoff Morton, was also
injured, her left foot and hip were badly bruised. The other members of the party escaped uninjured. Foust’s machine was badly damaged, the front wheel being wrecked. Delphos Herald, July 24, 1912 ---------Prettiest Girl in Delphos “My niece,” said a wellknown man the other day, “is often called the prettiest girl in Delphos. I believe half the compliments she gets are due to her shirt waists. They are always as clean and dainty looking as a snowflake. She’s mighty particular about them. She won’t use the cheap ordinary rosin soaps for washings, but buys this
Window to the Past
‘Easy Task Soap,’ you hear so much about. It seems that ‘Easy Task Soap’ just naturally goes after the dirt and doesn’t eat into and rot the fabrics like the rosin soaps. It costs the same - a nickel a cake.” Delphos Herald, July 24, 1912 ---------Lammers Left Big Fortune The following, which appeared in the Cincinnati Enquirer Friday, is of interest to Delphos people. Mrs. Mary Meyer, mentioned in the article, returned to Cincinnati, Thursday after a visit at the homes of Mrs. John Bunzhaf, of East Third street, and Mr. and Mrs. Casper Goebel and Otto and Louisa Stallkamp, of west of Delphos. Frank Lammers was a cousin of these people and has a number of other relatives residing in the vicinity of Delphos and Ft. Jennings. The Enquirer says: “Relatives of Frank Lammers,
Old Delphos news
book, I decided to read “The Place on Jennings Creek” instead of just returning it to the bookshelf. Since then I have read and re-read parts of it. I became fascinated with the book. It is a must for all students in the Delphos schools….a good one for the parents and teachers also. When our oldest son, Bill, was in Cub Scouts, we were privileged to view the moon through Peltier’s telescope in his home observatory. It was a real thrill! Memories of this experience returned when I viewed the “Super Moon” last Saturday night. In the opening chapter Peltier describes Brookhaven inside and out. Although the Jennings Creek is not a brook, that was the name given to the home and it’s surroundings by a previous owner. On one special November afternoon, Leslie’s wife, Dottie, called him at his workshop – office of the Delphos Bending Co. She excitedly told him that Realtor Bill Jones had the old Moenning place on the Jennings Creek listed. This beautiful Victorian house stood amidst a huge wooded area, with the back yard bordering the Jennings Creek. There were 32 trees in the front lawn alone. By the time Peltier arrived on the scene, Dottie had already fallen in love with the place. This unspoiled rural setting was just inside the western Delphos city limits. This beautiful home with all its gingerbread and porches was built by Henry Moennig in the late 19th century. Henry came to America from Germany with his family in 1843. He was 13 at the time. Henry helped his family clear the land for their farm. At the age of 27, he married Mary Bredeick, daughter of Ferdinand Bredeick, one of the founders of Delphos. Henry became a very active business man in town, with one street named for him. Henry and Mary had eight children. Three died in their first year and three others died rather young. Two surviving children, Elizabeth and Otto, moved to California. From 1938 on, Brookhaven had three owners. The first being a Catholic priest, by the name of Dr. John L. Sassen (or the parish), then Harold Wolfe and Collin M. Doyle. Doyle had horses and dogs while living there. They also added a swimming pool and golf course
to the front yard. After purchasing Brookhaven, the Peltier family used the pool until the boys went off to college. Mr. Peltier mentioned that he wished everyone would keep a journal. He often wondered how the previous owners passed the time while living at Brookhaven. “The Place on Jennings Creek” is really a nature book. In the book, the reader can wonder all over the grounds and enjoy the many varieties of trees on the property. Scattered all over the front part of the lawn was an assortment of old trees — oak, ash, sycamore, maple and catalpa, with a grouping of tall pines near the house. Leslie and Dottie often took walks around the property, stopping to sit on a log or two. The whole property covered about a dozen acres. They referred to the South Woods and the North Woods. Here they could enjoy almost every species of tree found in Delphos. Among them was cottonwood, willow, buckeye, hawthorne, hackberry, box elder, Austrian pine, Norway spruce, honey locust, redbud, apples, peach, wild black cherry, an ancient red cedar and a lone chestnut tree found in the South Woods. Peltier noted that at one time he estimated that there were 4,100 silver maples within the corporation limits of Delphos. He noted that if they were all sugar maples, the cash value of their average yield would by about $10,250. People planted silver maple because they grew faster. Peltier described Johnny Appleseed as if he knew him in person. Peltier refers to the quarry across the creek from his property. He describes the rock formations of the limestone quarry and how those walls and the limestone formations under his property can tell a lot about how our area was formed. He wrote about the granite boulders which came down 10,000 to 25,000 years ago with the glaciers that once covered much of Ohio. He describes the Black
Swamp, Ten Mile Woods and the Miami – Erie Canal. He mentions how Indians like Tecumseh and Little Turtle once roamed the area. It was Peltier’s great-grandfather, William Scott, who was one of the men who cut the first road from the Auglaize River through the wilderness to Van Wert. Scott lived to the age of 102. Peltier describes the house with its Trindows, which are three panes of glass, with two inches of space between each pane. He had a special room upstairs, with bookshelves filled to capacity. He could also walk out on to the roof to view the stars, if he didn’t want to walk out to his observatory on the north side of the estate, nearer the railroad. Peltier describes the many wildflowers on the property, such a trilliums, wild blue phlox, Dutchman’s breeches, blue Hepaticas and bloodroot. Naturally they also had golden rod and ragweed. They could listen to the night sounds of the crickets and katydids and the hooting of owls. They found a hummingbird nest in one of the trees. The nest was about the size of a dime, with two eggs, the size of garden peas. They enjoyed the many birds and wild animals. They were visited by herons, song birds, raccoon, rabbits and many other little creatures. He said Dottie made very good applesauce and he didn’t spray the trees because he didn’t mind sharing an apple with a worm, who got there first. Peltier also mentions the many bike trails that were in the South Woods. He said that was OK until the motor cycles came too. The author writes that he and Dottie thought they found the Promised Land, when they arrived at Brookhaven. He comments that: “May we, its trustees, administer it wisely and may its dividends accumulate as blessings for those who, one day, shall inherit this good earth.”
who disappeared from this locality more than 20 years ago, are making an effort to learn whether or not he is the J. Franklin Lammers who was reported killed in a snowslide in Alaska early in June of this year. An account of the death of J. Franklin Lammers was published in a Tacoma, Wash., dispatch. Mrs. Mary Meyer, of Parker street, Cincinnati, read the dispatch while visiting relatives in Delphos. “When she returned to Cincinnati yesterday, she conferred with her four sisters and determined to learn if the man killed in the Alaska snowslide was her missing brother. When Lammers left here he told his sisters that he would return to Ohio a rich man. He went to Detroit, Mich. and thence went west. “The J. Franklin Lammers who was reported killed lived in California for some years. His fortune is estimated to be about $600,000. (This was in
1912, so could that be about $6,000,000 at today’s rate? R.H.) Delphos Herald, July 26, 1912 ---------Delphos People Buy Land in Florida W.H. McKenzie, who left Delphos last week for a trip to points in Florida and was accompanied by Mrs. McKenzie, Carl Roth, Isaac McKenzie, Mrs. Jennie Ward, Mrs. Frank Brown and Miss Elizabeth Roberts, all of this city, has forwarded a telegram to his son-in-law, Gurney Serrels, stating that he has purchased a 40-acre farm near West Palm Beach, Florida, adjoining a 40-acre tract purchased by Mr. Serrels while he was in Florida, last March. The telegram states that Miss Elizabeth Roberts and Mrs. Frank Brown have also purchased ten acres each. Mr. Brown already owns a ten acre tract in that locality. Mr.
and Mrs. McKenzie, Mr. and Mrs. Serrels and children, Mr. and Mrs. Brown and several other Delphos people are contemplating going to Florida to reside and will erect homes on the farms they have purchased. Delphos Herald, July 23, 1912 ---------A Happy Party A number of little folks gathered at the pleasant home of Mr. and Mrs. John Vonderembse on South Franklin St. and had a good time in honor of little Miss Edna Wolke, of Covington, Ky., who is visiting Mr. and Mrs. Vonderembse, her uncle and aunt. The little folks present were: Maggie and Flora Lindemann, Katie and Marie Lang, Mabel and Ethyl Jettinghoff, Nora and Mary Wahmhoff, Gert Herlihy, Virginia Gasson, Edna Wolke and Eddie Stallkamp.

BY MARGIE ROSTORFER We enjoyed several nice days of “no coat” weather — and now this again. I couldn’t believe we woke up to snow on the ground just a day ago. I had mistakenly thought I could put my winter coat away. Still, the birds have been singing their happy morning songs for several weeks now, and the grass seems to get a little greener each day. I guess that’s Spring for you. It’s what almost all of us have been waiting patiently, or maybe impatiently for all winter. Spring sure sets
all of nature in motion though, doesn’t it? For a lot of homeowners, the arrival of Spring triggers an internal urge to tackle that annual task of Spring cleaning. We take things down from the walls, give them a good cleaning, and then put them back up again, maybe. But, maybe you’re tired of the old look and want something new or just want less clutter. Please try to remember the Thrift Shop in all your Spring clean-up endeavors. We are currently in need of household items. With the current state of the
economy and so many workers either laid off or permanently severed from their jobs, many more people are seeking help through the Thrift Shop. Everything from dishes, cookware, silverware, and towels, to bathroom accessories, rugs, and trash cans, and even pictures for the walls are needed. Instead of setting it out at the curb, please consider donating your nice, gently used, useful items to the Thrift Shop. When donating glass or any breakable items, it would be extremely helpful and appreciative if those items
Humane Society of Allen County has many pets waiting for adoption. Each comes with a spay or neuter, first shots and a heartworm test. The Humane Society is located at 3606 Elida Road, Lima, and can be contacted at 419-9911775.

could be carefully wrapped to prevent breakage and possible injury to the volunteers who are sorting and unpacking the donated items. These types of items should not be packed in with the clothing but packaged separately and the box marked fragile. If your children or grandchildren have outgrown or have become tired of or bored with their toys, consider dropping those off at the donation window located on the First Street side of the store near the rear of the building. Your unwanted toy or storybook will make some child very happy. The Boutique carries many fine items such as china, crystal and glassware, colognes and lotions, beautiful rings, necklaces, and bracelets, framed pictures and lots of items with the store tags still on them. Stop in and browse around. Clean, monitored fitting rooms are available for trying on any of the items you select. All of the spring and warmer weather apparel is now out and changes rapidly, so visit the store often. From time to time we hear customers request longer store hours and more days that the store is open. While the Thrift Shop operates on the generous help of its volunteers, it is difficult to find enough volunteers to fill all of the current hours, and adding extended hours at this time is not feasible, even though we do understand the need and the concern. Also suggested was the need for shopping carts. It was determined that at the present time, the congestion with so many shoppers in the store just doesn’t give us the extra room allowance needed for shopping carts. We do like and encourage your suggestions for the betterment of the Thrift Shop, and will take each one under careful consideration. If you are in need of or know someone who could use some assistance, contact the Thrift Shop at 419-692-2942. There are so many assistance programs available that are not being fully utilized. Our mission is to help and to serve; for God is love and love is meeting people’s needs. Until the next time, that’s this month’s report.

HIALEAH, FL — An ingredient often used to treat inflammation in racehorse’s legs, is now back on the market in its original doctor recommended formula. According to a national drug store survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back to the market under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, the ARTH ARREST formula is useful in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, rheumatism, tendonitis, backache and more. ARTH ARREST is available in a convenient roll-on applicator at pharmacies without a prescription or call 1-800-339-3301. Now at:

Kentucky edges Ohio State 62-60 on Knight’s jumper
By WILL GRAVES The Associated Press NEWARK, N.J. — Brandon Knight did it again. Knight knocked down a jumper with 5 seconds remaining as the fourth-seeded Wildcats stunned top-seeded Ohio State 62-60 on Friday in the East regional semifinals. Senior center Josh Harrellson held his own against Ohio State super freshman Jared Sullinger, scoring 17 points and grabbing 10 rebounds as the Wildcats (28-8) advanced to play North Carolina on Sunday for a trip to the Final Four. Knight, who knocked down a game-winner in Kentucky’s second-round win over Princeton, shrugged off another sluggish performance to drill the biggest shot of his career. Kentucky coach John Calipari opted not to call timeout after Ohio State’s John Diebler hit a 3-pointer to tie the game at 60 with 21 seconds remaining and Knight delivered a silky 15-foot jumper. Ohio State rushed down the floor but William Buford’s 3-pointer clanked off the rim and the rebound was tapped out of harm’s way. The Wildcats, who struggled to win close games earlier in the season, flooded onto the floor as the buzzer sounded. DeAndre Liggins, like Harrellson a leftover from Billy Gillispie’s days at Kentucky, hopped atop a table and pounded his chest as Knight stood at halfcourt and soaked in the moment. Liggins added 15 points for the Wildcats, who beat Ohio State for the first time in the NCAA tournament behind a suffocating defense that limited the Buckeyes to 32 percent shooting. Sullinger led Ohio State (34-3) with 21 points and 16 rebounds but the Buckeyes fell in the regional semifinals for a second straight season. The win gives Kentucky a chance to avenge a loss to the Tar Heels earlier in the season. The Wildcats fell 75-73 in Chapel Hill in December, a game in which they gave away several chances to win. Those days seem long gone. Kentucky has won nine straight and developed the kind of grit Calipari knew would come if he stayed patient with his freshmenladen roster. The Wildcats succeeded where so many teams have failed this season against the Buckeyes, dominating them on the defensive end. Kentucky swarmed the 3-point line, limiting the sharpshooting Buckeyes — who had made 28 3-pointers in easy victories over Texas-San Antonio and George Mason — to just 6-of-16 3-pointers. Ohio State wasn’t any better inside the arc, shooting just 33 percent from the field as everyone besides Sullinger struggled to find room against Kentucky’s myriad of defensive looks. The first NCAA meeting between the two schools in 24 years had a Final Four feel. There were 19 lead changes, with no team leading by more than three points over the final 17 minutes. It’s a situation where the Wildcats had faltered early in the season. At one point they were 0-6 in games decided by five points or less. This time Kentucky made the big plays when it mattered, withstanding a skittish opening 9 minutes to forge a 30-30 tie at the break thanks largely to some inspired play by Harrellson. The little-used reserve a year ago has blossomed into a blue collar cult hero as a senior. His leadership kept Kentucky in it after Terrence Jones and Knight battled jitters and early foul trouble. Harrellson took Sullinger off the dribble for one basket and screamed after dunking off a pickand-roll for another. Later in the half, he drew the ire of Matta after beaning Sullinger with a fastball while falling out of bounds. The Wildcats also did something few teams have been able to do this year: bottle up Ohio State’s 3-point shooters. The Buckeyes came in averaging nearly eight made 3-pointers a game, knocking down 28 in their first two tournament games combined. Ohio State only made two in the first half, both by Diebler, as the Wildcats extended the defense to prevent open looks. It set the stage for a chippy second half that ended with another highlight-reel shot by the precocious Knight. North Carolina 81, Marquette 63 NEWARK, N.J. — Catch ’em if you can.
After repeated early, deep deficits this postseason, North Carolina flipped the script Friday night, dismantling Marquette 81-63 in an East Regional semifinal that was over before the half. North Carolina got off to its customary slow start, then seized control to move within a game of reaching the Final Four for the third time in four years. “I looked up at the clock and it was 10-8 their favor and the next time I looked at the clock is when I went off at halftime and it was 40-15,” North Carolina coach Roy Williams said. “I knew we were doing very well to say the least.” Those 15 first-half points were the second-fewest allowed by North Carolina in a half in 144 NCAA tournament games and the Marquette’s 20 percent shooting from the field came on 6-of-30 shooting that was the second lowest by an opponent in an NCAA tournament game. Just a year after missing the NCAA party, the kids from Chapel Hill are ready to steal the show. Tyler Zeller had 27 points and 15 rebounds, while John Henson added 14 points and 12 rebounds for the second-seeded Tar Heels in the rout at the Prudential Center. Harrison Barnes added 20 points and six rebounds. North Carolina (29-7) will face Kentucky (28-8) on Sunday for a spot in Houston. The Wildcats knocked off top-seeded Ohio State 62-60 in the second game. The Tar Heels beat Kentucky 75-73 in North Carolina on Dec. 4.

Smack talk spices Ohio State-Tennessee
By RUSTY MILLER The Associated Press DAYTON — It only took a minute to raise the temperature of the Ohio State-Tennessee game. Asked an innocuous opening question about the Buckeyes, Lady Vols post player Glory Johnson wasted little time in offering up material suitable for the bulletin board leading up to today’s regional semifinal at the University of Dayton Arena. “They have a huge post presence, just like ours, but we have more. (We’ll) wear out their posts,” Johnson replied Friday. “Try to push it back on them. They can’t run with us. I know for sure they can’t run with us.” Those words may sting but it’s not as if Ohio State is backing down. Ohio State coach Jim Foster might have struck the first blow in the war of words. Earlier this week he was asked what he admired most about Tennessee coach Pat Summitt, whom he butted heads with during his 11 years at Southeastern Conference rival Vanderbilt. “She’s done a great job of getting great players,” he replied evenly. There was no mention of developing them or being a great bench coach for the woman who has an NCAArecord 1,070 wins against just 198 losses, an astounding .844 success rate. Foster said his relationship with Summitt during his years in the same state and same conference could be summed up in three words: “No love lost.” He did lighten the mood by joking about Tennessee’s omnipresent color scheme: “I don’t even eat orange M&Ms. They don’t taste as good as the other ones.” Summitt isn’t jumping into the fray. “I have a lot of respect for Jim,” she said. “We had some knockdown, drag-out games. He did a great job at Vanderbilt, there’s no doubt about that. He’s going to have his team ready to play tomorrow.” Whether the top-seeded Lady Vols (33-2) can mute the production of Ohio State (24-9) star center Jantel Lavender, and whether the Buckeyes can run with Tennessee, are the two major subplots of the game. The winner will meet either Notre Dame or Oklahoma on Monday night with a trip to the Final Four hanging in the balance. Lavender, a 6-4 senior, is the linchpin of Ohio State’s attack. She averages 22.9 points and 10.9 rebounds a game. As she goes, so go the Buckeyes, who have won 11 in a row. The Lady Vols plan to throw a lot of big players at her, hoping to wear her down. “The Big Ten really prepared us for that,” she said. “We have big-bodied post players, post players who like to (get physical), post players who are really athletic. Tennessee is kind of that same thing all in one.” As for the Lady Vols winning a track meet, Buckeyes point guard Samantha Prahalis isn’t so sure. “We’ve been in a few,” she said. “We like to play fast. We like to play in transition.” Despite winning their last 24 games — dating to a 65-54 setback at No. 2 Baylor on Dec. 14 — the Lady Vols have not been completely satisfied with their play. The players called a team meeting after the Lady Vols slipped by No. 25 Marquette 79-70 in the second round at their own Thompson-Boling Arena on Monday. Shooting guard Angie Bjorklund was asked if voices were raised or if it were just a friendly chat. “I don’t know about a friendly chat,” Bjorklund answered, grinning. “It was definitely a serious meeting. You could just sense the maturity of this team. We all have the same goal in mind. We’re all working for the same thing. We just went around and voiced what we thought it will take to win.” Tennessee has won eight national championships in its glittering history. But the Buckeyes — with only one trip to the Final Four and no titles — seem less than impressed. “We’re in the Sweet 16 with a chance to get to the Elite Eight,” Prahalis added. “They have a great legacy. But this is 2011.” Notre Dame-Oklahoma becoming tourney rivals: Notre Dame and Oklahoma have gone overtime to develop their NCAA tournament rivalry. Two games, two overtimes, a split decision. There’s a lot of drama whenever they play with everything on the line. And the NCAA selection committee has set them up to do it again. The second-seeded Fighting Irish (28-7) play the Sooners (23-11) in a regional semifinal today. It’ll be the third time in the last four years that they’ve played in the tournament, with their previous games setting a standard for fantastic finishes. “I think the committee likes good television,” Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said Friday. “This could be one of those games.” Sure could. Both teams like to push the pace and pile up points. Both teams are on a tear. And both teams remember how their last two tournament games went. The first came in 2008, when they played a secondround game in West Lafayette, Ind. The Fighting Irish overcame a 5-point deficit and won

in overtime 79-75, with Charel Allen scoring 35 points to lead the comeback. “I forget the girl’s name but she ended up having 35 points for Notre Dame and I was like, ‘Wow, welcome to college basketball, welcome to the NCAA tournament’,” recalled Oklahoma guard Danielle Robinson, who was a freshman at the time. “It’s been back-andforth with them.” The rematch came last year in Kansas City, where Oklahoma got its fourth overtime win of the season — a school record — and beat the second-seeded Fighting Irish 77-72 in a pulsating regional semifinal. Nyeshia Stevenson made a tie-breaking 3 with 4.4 seconds left in overtime to decide it. “It’s a little bit of a rivalry between us,” Notre Dame center Brittany Mallory said. “I think we are all ready for it to be a great game.” It has the ingredients. Notre Dame is a No. 2 seed again, known for its fastscoring offense. The Fighting Irish have won nine games by at least 35 points — a school record — and scored at least 90 points eight times this season, also a school record. Once they get a rebound or steal, they get moving. Sixth-seeded Oklahoma likes to push the pace, too, led by its guard tandem of Robinson (18.4 points per game) and freshman Aaryn Ellenberg (16.4 points). The Sooners lost four of their last six in the regular season, but have gotten the offense rolling in the NCAA tournament with an 86-72 win over James Madison and 88-83 over Miami. If it comes down to a final fling, Oklahoma is ready. Before every practice, the Sooners take turns shooting from midcourt. Robinson rarely misses. Louisville set for hostile environment vs. Gonzaga: In the midst of winning just 14 games last season, Louisville coach Jeff Walz found something good in the middle of a miserable season — Shoni Schimmel. While other schools pursuing Schimmel were busy with the postseason last March, Walz and his staff hit the Oregon state high school basketball championships and watched Schimmel’s Franklin High team finish sixth. That extra time helped make some headway in recruiting one of the country’s top guards. “We were the only staff that did that,” Walz said. “So I think we made some ground up there and really sold Shoni and

(Continued from Page 6) The Tar Heels beat Kentucky 75-73 in North Carolina on Dec. 4. The Tar Heels looked scary against Marquette (22-15). Everyone knew they could run up and down the court with the best in college basketball. Friday’s dominating defensive performance was an eye-opener. Marquette’s miserable game meant the Big East’s contingent of 11 teams has dipped to one — Connecticut. “We just couldn’t do anything right in the first half and that’s just not the way we play,” said Davante Gardner who led the Golden Eagles with 16 points and six rebounds. “It was uncharacteristic of us and, actually, it was pretty embarrassing.” Marquette had only two bad games down the stretch and both came in this building. Three weeks ago, they were blown out by a sub.500 Seton Hall team in a game that seemingly put the Golden Eagles out of the NCAA tournament. Marquette, however, played well enough in the Big East Conference tournament to make the show then knocked off Xavier and fourth-seeded Syracuse. Going against North Carolina was a mismatch. Jimmy Butler had 14 points in his final game. The Tar Heels played a physical game against their tough-minded opponent for the opening eight minutes and then took control. Trailing 10-8 with 12:43 to go, North Carolina went on a 19-0 run, forcing Marquette to miss 14 straight shots. The game was just about over at that point. Kendall Marshall started the North Carolina run with a shot in the lane and Zeller gave the Tar Heels the lead for good, grabbing two offensive rebounds on the same possession and putting the second one in. Marshall, who had seven assists, hit another jumper in the lane and then made a crosscourt pass to Henson for an alley-oop dunk that had the powder blue-clad North Carolina fans jumping out of their seats. When Dexter Strickland hit a jumper on a fast break, Marquette coach Buzz Williams called a timeout with his team down 18-10. He would call three in the run, sensing his team was losing their way. It didn’t work. Henson hit two layups, Barnes hit a 3-pointer and Leslie McDonald scored on a rebound follow to push the lead to 27-10 with 4:41 to go in the half. Marquette’s futility ended when Butler hit a jumper with 3:54 to go, ending a nearly nine-minute scoring drought for the Golden Eagles, who scored five points in the final 12:42 of the half to fall behind 40-15. North Carolina added to Marquette’s misery in the opening minutes of the second half, scoring the first six points to open a 46-15 lead. After the second basket, Williams called another timeout. Strickland then stole the inbound pass and scored on a fast break to further embarrass the Golden Eagles. Kansas 77, Richmond 57 SAN ANTONIO — Ramping up for perhaps the biggest game in school history, 12th-seeded Richmond huddled in the tunnel. That’s when Kansas players came trotting past and the trouble started. Shoves were traded. Words were exchanged and security appeared. It ended quickly without a fight and the Jayhawks went on their way. The game itself wasn’t much different. Brady Morningstar scored 18 points and Kansas, playing like the dominant No. 1 seed in a historic NCAA regional full of underdogs, knocked off Richmond 77-57 on Friday night to move one victory from returning the Final Four for the first time since its 2008 championship. “We were trying to get past and they were shoving us,” Kansas guard Mario Little said of the pregame encounter. “But we tried to let our play do the talking and I think we did a good job in the first half.” There was no doubt about that.
The Spiders passed up open shots, bounced balls into the Kansas bench and found themselves down 31-9 with more than six minutes still left before halftime. The Spiders looked jittery in the what was only the school’s second round-of-16 appearance. The Jayhawks, meanwhile, were calm and confident in reaching a fourth regional final under coach Bill Self. Justin Harper led Richmond with 22 points. Thomas Robinson had 12 points and 14 rebounds and Marcus Morris scored 13 for Kansas. The Jayhawks have yet to be tested so far this tournament, winning by an average of nearly 18 points. The Southwest regional is the first in NCAA history with three double-digit seeded teams. Kansas will play 11th-seeded Virginia Commonwealth. It’s given the Jayhawks what appears — at least on paper — to be an easy-looking path toward the Final Four. The Jayhawks can make it to Houston next week without having beaten a seed higher than ninth-seeded Illinois. If that happens, Kansas will join Michigan State in 2001 and North Carolina in 1991 as the only schools to get that far without having to beat a seed higher than nine. And only five teams have reached the Final Four by feasting on teams seeded eighth or lower, according to STATS LLC. One of those schools? The 2008 Jayhawks. That run ended in the Alamodome with Self winning his first title at Kansas. Three years later, the Jayhawks looked every bit at home in San Antonio. Self downplayed the pregame tunnel dustup as “typical stuff but it wasn’t anything.” Spiders guard Kevin Anderson, who had 14 points, said both teams were just eager to play and chalked it up to usual aggression. Still, Self waited for Richmond to exit through the tunnel at halftime before letting his players walk down the same tunnel toward the locker room. Kansas was already ahead 41-22. The Jayhawks shot 48 percent from the floor and made 9-of-19 3-pointers. Morningstar was 7-for11 from the floor, including four 3-pointers. Josh Selby added nine points. Anderson and Harper were the only Richmond players in double figures. Anderson, who hit the winning shot to upset Vanderbilt in the tournament opener, averaged 26.2 points in Richmond’s previous five wins over ranked teams. But the senior was 5-of-17 from the floor in his final game and missed all six of his 3-pointers. The loss stopped Richmond from reaching the first regional final in school history. Head coach Chris Mooney sought to inspire his players this week by showing them Richmond’s stunning win at Allen Fieldhouse in 2004, which ended Kansas’ 52-game home unbeaten streak against unranked opponents. It had been the only meeting between the schools before Friday. This time, the Jayhawks never looked in trouble. Virginia Commonwealth 72, Florida State 71 SAN ANTONIO — Bradford Burgess made a layup off an inbounds pass with 7.1 seconds left and Jamie Skeen blocked a shot at the buzzer, giving Virginia Commonwealth a 72-71 victory over Florida State in overtime in a Southwest Region semifinal Friday night. In the first NCAA tournament game between teams seeded 10 and 11, the lower seeded Rams blew a 9-point lead by scoring only three points in the final 7:37 of regulation. They never trailed by more than four all night but found themselves down 71-70 when Burgess scored the kind of basket that will live in NCAA tournament lore. The Rams (27-11) are among the final eight for the first time. Having already ousted high-profile programs from the Pac-10 (Southern Cal), Big East (Georgetown), Big Ten (Purdue) and now the ACC, they will try adding the Big 12 to their hit list, facing top-seeded Kansas.
Delphos Optimist Club Sixth-Grade Girls Basketball Tournament
Saturday, March 26, 2011
The Herald — 7
Winners of the Delphos Optimist Club’s 6th-Grade Girls Basketball Tournament held earlier this month is the Columbus Grove St. Anthony team made up of Jade Clement, Danielle Caudill, Candace Downing, Jenny Ellerbrock, Karenna Langhals, Hallie Malsam, Kirstin Malsam and Renee Schroeder.
Runners-up and the Sportsmanship Award winner in the sixth-grade tourney is St. John’s, made up of Jessica Geise, Madilynn Schulte, Carleigh Ankerman, Lauren Ladd, Kristina Koester, Jana Hamilton, Maya Gerker, Ally Gerberick, Courtney Wrasman, Kelsi Gillespie, Bailey Lindeman, Brandy Bauldauf, Micheala Hoffman and Megan German. Coaches are Leslie Klaus and Stacy Grothouse.
(Continued from Page 6) her family on the opportunity of being able to go away from home, being able to experience new things, and also gave them some comfort to know that she would be taken care of as a person, not just as a basketball player.” It’s her swagger and scoring ability that has helped bring Louisville back to the NCAA tournament. The seventh-seeded Cardinals (22-12) will play No. 11 seed Gonzaga (30-4) in tonight’s Spokane Regional semifinal. Schimmel’s career-high 33 points, including the first nine points in a deciding 21-5 run, propelled the Cardinals past second-seeded Xavier 85-75 and back to the round of 16. The matchup against Gonzaga creates an interesting pairing — Schimmel and Bulldogs star point guard Courtney Vandersloot. Schimmel’s confidence, especially as a freshman, has
impressed the Bulldogs. Louisville wasn’t given much of a reward for getting this far for the third time in four seasons. The Cardinals face a Gonzaga team that dispatched sixth-seeded Iowa and No. 3 seed UCLA at home to reach the regional semifinals for a second straight year. The last time Gonzaga left Spokane was for the West Coast Conference tournament in Las Vegas, which the Bulldogs won on March 7. A sellout of nearly 12,000 is expected for tonight. While Schimmel was the key in getting Louisville to Spokane, Monique Reid has been the Cardinals’ steadying force in the middle, leading Louisville in scoring and rebounding. She has scored in double figures in 30 out of 34 games this season and had 22 in the Cardinals’ first-round win over Vanderbilt. For Gonzaga, the continued emergence of forward Kayla Standish is key. Although
The Associated Press MIAMI — Dwyane Wade scored 39 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, LeBron James finished with 32 points and 10 rebounds of his own and the Miami Heat went on two huge scoring runs to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 111-99 on Friday night. Chris Bosh added 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat, who went on a 23-2 run in the second quarter to erase what was a 16-point deficit, then put it away with a 24-5 burst in the fourth. Louis Williams scored 24 points for Philadelphia, which got 15 more from fellow reserve Thaddeus Young. Jodie Meeks added 14 for Philadelphia, which was outscored 34-17 in the fourth quarter. Bulls 99, Grizzlies 96 CHICAGO — Derrick Rose scored 24 points, including Chicago’s last seven, and added seven rebounds and seven assists as the Bulls won their 11th in 12 games. Rose made two free throws with 2 1/2 minutes left to give Chicago the lead, then drove past Tony Allen and converted over Marc Gasol with 10 seconds remaining to increase Chicago’s lead to 97-93. Once again hearing those “MVP!” chants, Rose made the resulting free throw. Memphis had one last chance after O.J. Mayo connected from long range and Rose had a 1-for-2 trip at the line but Mike Conley missed a 3-pointer over Joakim Noah as time expired. Luol Deng scored 23 and Carlos Boozer added 12 points and nine boards for Chicago. Zach Randolph scored 16 points and Gasol added 14 for Memphis. Bobcats 83, Celtics 81 BOSTON — Dante Cunningham hit a go-ahead 15-foot jumper with 34 seconds left and Charlotte erased a 13-point deficit in the fourth quarter. The Bobcats outscored the Celtics 30-15 in the final period. Boston’s hopes ended when Ray Allen missed a 3-point attempt and Kevin Garnett failed on a jumper in the final 5 seconds. Charlotte moved two games behind Indiana, which lost to Sacramento, for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Boston, which began the night a half-game behind Chicago for the best record in the East, lost for the sixth time in 10 games. DJ White led the Bobcats with a career-high 17 points. Boston was led by Paul Pierce with 18. Magic 95, Nets 85 ORLANDO, Fla. — Dwight Howard had 21 points and 14 rebounds

The Herald –9
By Bernice Bede Osol
Sunday, March 27, 2011 There are likely to be more than a few interesting developments in store for you. Some might unravel in the twinkling of the eye, but most will develop slowly. In all cases, however, they should hold great interest. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Regardless of how many scintillating tales you have to tell, don’t dominate the conversation when gabbing with friends. Let others have the spotlight from time to time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Spreading rumors won’t add luster to your image, no matter how juicy some of them may be. Disseminating unreliable gossip could injure the innocent. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Be kind and tolerant if you are saddled with someone who always does a lot of talking but never has anything of value to say. You’ll eventually find just the right time to make a fast exit. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If a controversial subject comes up, don’t involve yourself in it. You won’t be able to win anybody over to your point of view, nor will you see the merits of the opposing side. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Rationalization or wishful thinking is never a substitute for productivity. If you want something done, you’ll have to roll up your sleeves and do it all by yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Before finalizing a group activity, ask the other parties involved if they are in accord. If you don’t, and discover later that someone is unhappy, serious problems could arise. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Issues that evoke opposing views among the family need to be avoided. Kinfolk tend to be firm in their beliefs, and nothing but grief will come from argument. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Don’t take it for granted that a friend or family member who goes out of his/her way to do something nice for you knows that you are appreciative. Be sure to verbalize your thank-you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you can’t comfortably spend the necessary cash to purchase something you want but truly don’t need, wait until circumstances improve. Realism is your friend. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It’s human nature to want to blame someone when we can’t have something we want. If you point the finger and try to make another the scapegoat, you’ll generate a lot of anger. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Believing everything you hear can quickly take you down a blind alley. Take things with a hefty serving of Mrs. Dash or, at the very least, verify all the facts before passing any of them on to others. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Generosity is a marvelous quality, but don’t waste it on the unappreciative. Instead, bestow what you have to offer on recipients who are as grateful and generous as you are. Monday, March 28, 2011 Both Lady Luck and circumstances will be trending in your favor in the coming year, making you far more fortunate than usual in fulfilling your ambitious aims. However, it will be up to you to make the most of it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you have to deal with a person who thinks they are always right, the only way you’ll be able to get your points across is with diplomacy and tact. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Any frustrating situation that confronts you is likely to be self-imposed. Tread carefully so that obstacles you accidentally put in your own path don’t trip you up. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Don’t allow yourself to get drawn into the middle of a squabble among friends, when involved in a group endeavor. If you let your guard down, prepare to bicker. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Once you set your mind on a specific objective, you become a very determined person. Currently however, it might be difficult for you to focus on a goal, and you could easily veer off course. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It’s not advisable for you to attempt to make some major changes in an arrangement with friends. Conditions are already delicate, and trying to usurp their plans could make matters worse. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Be extremely watchful if you decide to get involved with friends in an endeavor that requires everyone to pitch in financially. The person running the show might get a good deal, but you won’t. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- In an arrangement with a friend, don’t worry too much about his/her intentions. Instead, if you show that you’re concerned about doing what’s right, your pal will automatically follow suit. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- It is never a good time to lower your level of work performance. Your industriousness will be noted, and if it doesn’t measure up to expectations, you’ll suffer the consequences. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Although you love to gamble and are usually pretty good at it, this is not a day to involve yourself or friends in any type of risky venture. Be smart and use good judgment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Discontent on the home front is likely because family members may try to place the blame for things that go wrong on anybody but themselves. Don’t join in. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Adopting an indifferent attitude will cause you to act without first considering the consequences of what you are doing. Try to curb any kind of impulsive move. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Before the day is over, there is a strong possibility that your wallet will begin to look like a sieve. You had better plug up any leaks caused by destructive extravagance.
