For The Record wants Gadhafi And a child shall lead us RussiaCHARLTON would be useful.” out The Delphos By ANGELA Associated Press The proposal thrust In the 11-plus years I have worked at The Herald NANCY SPENCER Medvedev into the spotlight at Herald, I have had the pleasure of meeting
some really neat, unique and wonderful people. Every once in a while, one will stand out. Kaleb Helms is such a person. For all his 11 years, he has more compassion for others than many adults I know. I first met Kaleb two years ago when he decided to collect water for earthquake victims. He had seen something on TV about their situation and the person talking said everyone should help. Well, Kaleb took that to heart and collected nearly a ton of water. I thought he was a pretty neat kid then. Roll forward a couple of years and now Kaleb, who is in to science and such, is taking the Youth Astronaut Class at the Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum in Wapakoneta. He learned the museum has lost state funding and is struggling. Of course he wishes to continue his classes because since he was 3 years old, he’s also wanted to be an astronaut. He also sees the value in the museum and wants everyone to be able to enjoy it. Yes, this child has spent but 11 years on this earth and he already gets it. He truly gets it. Statistics don’t even show philanthropy numbers for kids Kaleb’s age. It starts with Generation Y. The Matures top the list with 77 percent giving. Generation Y is of course the least with 54 percent giving.

Patrol reminds drivers not to drive impaired this weekend
COLUMBUS — The Ohio State Highway Patrol is reminding drivers to not get behind the wheel impaired this Memorial Day weekend. Troopers will be working alongside local law enforcement officers in an effort to have a weekend free of impaired-fatal crashes. Memorial Day weekend is traditionally a dangerous holiday period on Ohio roads, particularly for impaired driving crashes. Last Memorial Day holiday, six of the 11 people killed on Ohio roadways were involved in alcohol-related crashes. “Each day, over two million miles are driven by impaired motorists and their poor choices severely threaten the well-being of every citizen
There are many lessons to be learned from young Kaleb. First and foremost, he sees a need and he finds a way to fill it. Secondly, he does it with no thought of his own gain. Now, how is he going to accomplish his goal of keeping the space museum up and running for generations to come? He is raffling the mountain bike he earned selling popcorn with Boy Scouts and he also got someone else to donate one to raffle, too. If just a fraction of us had the philanthropic insight this young gentleman does, the whole world could be a better place. If you see young Master Kaleb out and about, tell him what a cool kid you think he is. If you don’t think he’s cool, knock it off. Speaking of a better place, please join the Delphos Veterans Council, VFW and American legion members in honoring and remembering those who gave all in the fight for freedom. They will unveil three new monuments at the park. I’m sure it will be a must-see event.
‘Taxi,’ ‘Grease’ star dies at 60
By LYNN ELBER Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Jeff Conaway, who starred in the sitcom “Taxi,” played swaggering Kenickie in the movie musical “Grease” and publicly battled drug and alcohol addiction on “Celebrity Rehab,” died Friday. He was 60. The actor was taken off life support Thursday and died Friday morning at Encino Tarzana Medical Center, according to one of his managers, Kathryn Boole. “It’s sad that people remember his struggle with drugs. ... He has touched so many people,” she said, calling Conaway a kind and intelligent man who was well read and “always so interesting to talk to. We respected him as an artist and loved him as a friend.” “He was trying so hard to get clean and sober,” Boole added. “If it hadn’t been for his back pain, I think he would have been able to do it.” Family members, including his sisters, nieces and nephews, and his minister, were with him when he died, Boole said. He was taken to the hospital unconscious on May 11 and placed in a medically induced coma while being treated for pneumonia and sepsis, which is blood poisoning caused by a bacterial infection. Conaway had failed to seek medical aid, instead trying to treat himself with pain pills and cold medicine, said Phil Brock, Boole’s business partner. “He’s a gentle soul with a good heart ... but he’s never been able to exorcise his demons,” Brock said after Conaway was hospitalized. Conaway is the second person who appeared in the VH1 reality series “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew” who later died. In March, former Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr, who was on the show in 2009, was found dead in Salt Lake City. The month before, police there had arrested him on suspicion of possession of medications without a required prescription. Messages seeking comment from Pinsky, a physician and radio and TV personality, were not immediately returned Friday. Conaway had acknowledged his addictive tendencies in a 1985 interview with The Associated Press, when he described turning his back on the dream of a pop music career. He’d played guitar in a 1960s band called 3 1/2 that was the opening act for groups including Herman’s Hermits, The Young Rascals and The Animals. “I thought, ‘If I stay in this business, I’ll be dead in a year.’ There were drugs all over the place and people were doing them. I had started to do them. I realized that I’d die,” Conaway told the AP. His effort to avoid addiction failed, and his battles with cocaine and other substances were painfully shared in two stints on “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew.” Conaway, who’d had repeated back sur-
DEAUVILLE, France — Russia abandoned one-time ally Moammar Gadhafi and offered Friday to mediate a deal for the Libyan leader to leave the country he has ruled for more than 40 years. The striking proposal by a leading critic of the NATO bombing campaign reflects growing international frustration with the Libyan crisis and a desire by the Kremlin for influence in the rapidly changing Arab landscape. With Gadhafi increasingly isolated and NATO jets intensifying their attacks, Russia may also be eyeing Libya’s oil and gas and preparing for the prospect that the lucrative Libyan market will fall into full rebel control. Early today, two NATO air strikes shook the Libyan capital, Tripoli. It was not immediately clear what was targeted. “He should leave,” Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said of Gadhafi. “I proposed our mediation services to my partners. Everyone thinks that
a summit in France of Group of Eight rich nations. Talk of this year’s Arab world uprisings has dominated the summit. Analysts question whether Russia still has any leverage over Gadhafi, and the leaders of France, Britain and Germany said there’s no point in negotiating directly with the Libyan leader himself. “If Gadhafi makes this decision, which will be beneficial for the country and the people of Libya, then it will be possible to discuss the form of his departure, what country may accept him and on what terms, and what he may keep and what he must lose,” Medvedev told reporters. Medvedev said he is sending envoy Mikhail Margelov to the rebel stronghold of Benghazi immediately to start negotiating, and that talks with the Libyan government could take place later. Margelov said earlier Friday that it’s necessary to negotiate with all “reasonable” representatives of the government, including Gadhafi’s sons.

in the state,” Colonel John Born, superintendent of the Patrol, said. “Fatalities caused by impaired drivers are indeed a national tragedy - and that makes them a potential tragedy for each of us.” Motorists should also be reminded that wearing a safety belt is the single most effective tool in reducing injuries and deaths in crashes caused by impaired drivers. This message is part of the national Click It or Ticket safety belt mobilization coordinated by the Department of Public Safety’s Ohio Traffic Safety Office. Troopers encourage the public to continue using 1-877-7-PATROL to report impaired or dangerous drivers, as well as stranded motorists.
The following is the report concerning construction and maintenance work on state highways within the Ohio Department of Transportation District 1, which includes the counties of Allen, Defiance, Hancock, Hardin, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert and Wyandot. This report is issued each Thursday beginning in April and continues through November. (All work will take place weather permitting and during daytime hours Monday through Friday only unless otherwise indicated.) Allen County Ohio 81 from east of Township Road 68 to Conant Road will be restricted to one lane through the work zone in the eastbound direction for paving. Ohio 66 north of Spencerville will be restricted to one lane through the work zone in the northbound direction for paving. Ohio 309 between Cool Road and Thayer Road will be closed beginning May 31 for 30 days for the replacement of two culverts. Traffic will be detoured onto Interstate 75, Ohio 81 and Ohio 235 back to Ohio 309.
Ohio 81 approximately a mile and a half east of Ohio 66 over the Auglaize River closed for 75 days beginning April 25 for replacement of a bridge deck. Traffic detoured onto Ohio 66, Ohio 117 and Eastown Road back to Ohio 81. Ohio 309 (Elida Road) from Robb Avenue to Eastown Road on the west side of Lima is currently restricted to one lane in the eastbound direction for a safety upgrade project. Crews are currently working in the area between Robb Avenue and Arthur Avenue during daytime hours. Beginning Monday, a night crew will begin excavation work in the area from Wendy’s to Eastown Road. With the addition of the night shift, crews will be working in the zone most hours of the day and night. Motorists are asked to drive cautiously through the area and remain aware of equipment moving in and out of the work zone. Project will continue until September. Putnam County Ohio 15 between Ohio 108 and the Defiance County line will be restricted to one lane through the work zone for sealing of pavement cracks.
Van Wert County U.S. 224 between U.S. 30 and the Putnam County line will be restricted to one lane in each direction through the work zone for a resurfacing project set to begin Tuesday. Work will continue through July. Ohio 118 over Town Creek just south of Township Road 82 closed May 16 for 30 days for bridge deck overlay. Traffic detour begins at the intersection of Ohio 118 and Ohio 81. Go east on Ohio 81 to its intersection with U.S. 127. Go north on U.S. 127 to its intersection with Ohio 118. The same detour applies in reverse for the opposite direction of travel. Ohio 118 (Shannon Street) between Ervin Road and Main Street remains open to local traffic only during reconstruction, widening and water line and sanitary installation project which began in 2010. Localized one-block closures will occur throughout the project. Work is expected to be completed in September.

geries for an injury, blamed his cocaine use and pain pill abuse in part on his lingering back problem. Conaway was born in New York City on Oct. 5, 1950, to parents who were in show business. His father was an actor, producer and agent, and his mother was an actress. He made his Broadway debut in 1960 at the age of 10 in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “All the Way Home.” By then his parents were divorced, and Conaway had spent a great deal of time with his grandparents who lived in the Astoria section of Queens. “I used to hold in a lot of feelings. I’d smile a lot but I was really miserable. I didn’t know it at the time, but I’ve figured it out since. When I was on stage, I could make people laugh,” he said in 1985. He toured in the national company of the comedy “Critic’s Choice,” then attended a professional high school for young actors, musicians and singers. After abandoning music he returned to acting with a two-year stint in “Grease,” on Broadway (playing the lead role of Danny Zuko at one point) and eventually with the touring company. The musical about high school love brought Conaway to Los Angeles and television, including a small part on “Happy Days” that led to larger roles. He had roles in small films and then in the movie version of “Grease” (1978), although he lost the top-billed part to John Travolta. In 1978, he won the “Taxi” job — playing vain, struggling actor Bobby Wheeler — that put him in the company of Judd Hirsch, Danny de Vito and Andy Kaufman in what proved to be a hit for ABC. The tall, gangly actor, with a shock of blond hair and what the late longtime AP drama critic Michael Kuchwara called a “wide-angle smile” and “a television face, just right for popular consumption,” appeared a success. But Conaway, who received two Golden Globe nominations for “Taxi,” said he tired early of being a series regular, although he stayed with the series for three years, until 1981.

Teacher’s words shape Noonan’s career
On the banks of yesteryear ...
From the Delphos Canal Commission
BY NANCY SPENCER firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — “You should teach math, Linda.” That statement would shape the career of one St. John’s High School graduate. Spoken by one of her teachers, Linda Noonan took those words to heart. “When I graduated from St. John’s I moved on to go to Mary Manse College in Toledo. I started teaching at the elementary level and then moved to high school,” Noonan said. After 27 years, Noonan said she wouldn’t change a thing. “I really enjoy when the students’ faces light up and they get it and see a connection between what you are doing and the answer,” Noonan said. “I know math isn’t everyone’s favorite subject but I try to apply everyday life like interest on loans to what we’re working on. We use math everyday.” Noonan spent her first year at Jefferson working half-days before coming to her alma mater for a year. Then it was family time. “I took time off to raise our children and then started back full time in 1984-85,” she said. “I wouldn’t change that, either. That was a good decision.” One of Noonan’s favorite affirmations of her efforts is when her former students come back to visit. “I know I did my job when my students come back and say, ‘Thank you. I was prepared for college’,” she said. Perhaps what she will miss the most is the camaraderie of her fellow teachers. “There is such a family atmosphere at St. John’s. We all feel for each other. I have a lot of special memories here,” she said. Noonan and her husband, Tom, have four children, Scott, Russ, Ryan and Nicole, and enjoy six grandchildren. Now with a little time on her hands, Noonan said visits to those grandchildren will become a priority. “All of our grandchildren live out of town so spending more time with them is on the top of my list,” she said. Another item she’s likely to check off is visiting Maine in autumn to see the fall foliage. “You always hear people talking out the leaves in New England and how you’ve just got to see them,” she added. “Well, I’m planning on doing that now that I will have the time.”
When America was threatened by war, we used every means possible to encourage support of the war effort by all Americans. During World War II, Hollywood made patriotic movies and newsreels, victory gardens were planted, war bonds were issued and men and women were recruited to join the military. Housewives and mothers were coaxed into factories to take the place of men who were serving and even children were asked to do their part. Posters were designed, By SPENCER HUNT The Columbus Dispatch
Ohio State measures tornado’s damage to research
WOOSTER (AP) — There are many ways to measure the tornado that ripped through Ohio State University’s Agricultural Research and Development Center in September. Time wise, the twister took four minutes to cross the Wayne County campus. As far as size, the storm cut a path about 200 yards wide. Cost? As much as $30 million in damage to buildings, trees and other property. What’s harder to gauge, however, is the research affected by the storm that hit on Sept. 16. In all, about 500 projects — many of them housed in the five large greenhouses or in labs that lost power, threatening frozen genetic material — were harmed by the tornado. “You lose one plant and it can make a big difference,” said Bill Ravlin, the center’s associate director. In total, $126 million in government and private-sector grants and investments went into the 500 projects, according to OARDC officials. Then again, how can you measure the time and knowledge lost in the storm? When the storm hit, plant geneticist Esther van der Knaap had 2,000 experimental tomato seedlings in one of five large OARDC greenhouses. “In the end, we were able to rescue about 100 plants,” said van der Knaap, who is identifying the genes that influence tomato size and shape. “It was practically a total loss.” Starting over takes time. For example, it took five months to cross-pollinate tomato plants to create hybrid seedlings for field testing. Those seedlings should be
some by famous artists like Norman Rockwell and N. C. Wyeth, to keep the public thinking about the need to stay involved in winning the war. Newspapers and radio were the main source of information in those day so colorful posters proved to be a very good visual tool. These posters were placed in factories, offices, government buildings, train stations and even schools. The Delphos Canal Museum has a great display of these posters thanks to our many generous donors.
One poster offers gifts to children who sell War Savings Stamps while getting food to our troops and allies was promoted in an “eat less meat and wheat” themed poster. The Canal Museum is currently resetting displays as we expand to the second floor of our buildings. Please excuse our mess as we improve and update our collections. The Canal Museum is open from 9 a.m. to noon on Thursdays and from 1-3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Take another look. ready by the fall and are going to Florida, where the climate is better suited for late plantings. “If the seedlings aren’t ready to put in (an Ohio) field by June, you lose a whole year,” she said. David Francis, a plant breeder and geneticist, also had to grow a new generation of tomatoes for his research. “What we really lost was a season’s worth of work,” Francis said. He’s trying to develop a tomato that can resist a disease called bacterial spot. He’s also cross-breeding tomatoes to test the benefits of the antioxidants beta carotene and lycopene.
It was the summer of 1976. Janie and our three children were visiting my wife’s parents who lived nearby and I was feeling a little lonely. Despite being on crutches as a result of a torn tendon in my left knee and the subsequent surgery, I decided to go outside and try to enjoy the day. As I stepped onto our deck that led into the backyard, I noticed a black object in the grass that looked a lot like one of my smoking pipes. I carefully made my way down the steps and hobbled over to see if my suspicion was correct. Balancing myself on one crutch, I bent over and picked up what turned out to be my favorite pipe – a straight stemmed “Carey” that smoked smooth and seldom let any bitter taste from the pipe tobacco get into my mouth. Of all the pipes in my inexpensive collection, why was this one in the backyard and how did it get there? To add to my dismay, I noticed black fluid dripping from the pipe that looked and smelled like 3 in 1 oil! With Sherlock Holmes type intuition, I deduced that one my sons was most likely the perpetrator of this devious crime. But why? Were they pretending my pipe was a gun and that they were cleaning it? That didn’t make much sense because I didn’t own any handguns. I didn’t know what they were thinking but I knew one thing, somebody was in big trouble! Moving as quickly as I could on my crutches, I headed down the well worn path from our home to Grandpa and Grandma Dunn’s. Through back yards and a field I went following the trail that would lead me to the hideout of the criminals. My knee was hurting like crazy and the more it hurt the madder I got. My eyes spotted our two sons, Mike and John, ages six and four, and their cousin, Jerry, who was like our third son. Raising my oily ruined pipe, I demanded to know who had been playing with it. The look of fear on John’s face revealed that he was the culprit. “Go home right now,” I yelled, “you are going to get it.” Running past me, the boys started sprinting back up the trail I had just taken. I was soon left far behind, but determinedly huffed and puffed my way after them. I seldom spanked our children and was feeling bad about being so ticked off, but this was one time someone was going to have a stinging bottom. Sweating and still angry I finally made it into our back-
Those Were The Days A pipe, a little boy and grace
Pastor Dan Eaton yard, up the steps of the deck and into the house. After making my way through the dining room, down the hallway and into the boys’ bedroom, I arrived to find a sight that I did not expect to find. My “John Boy” had a T-shirt and shorts on when I found him at Grandpa and Grandma’s but now he was wearing blue jeans and it appeared that his normally small bottom had become noticeably larger. In fact, it looked like he had several layers of clothes on. As I looked at the three boys, I began to assess the situation. Obviously, big brother, Mike, and/or cousin, Jerry, had instructed John to put on some extra padding to ease the pain. There they all stood looking nervously at me. They had never seen me so angry. Tears were slipping down the cheeks of little Johnny. My anger began to dissipate and my love for them gained the upper hand. There was no need for any spanking. It was obvious that seeing me that upset had been punishment enough. I couldn’t help but smile as I looked at John’s padded bottom and their faces. He deserved a spanking but I extended grace instead. I told them that I loved them and that they were far more important to me than any old pipe. Grace — God’s unmerited favor. I wonder how many times my heavenly father has looked at me and knowing that I deserved a spanking, chose to forgive me instead? I am so glad God has not given me what I deserve but has given me what I don’t deserve – His mercy, grace, and love. As for my collection of pipes… a few years after the aforementioned incident, our little daughter, Chrissy, got my attention. With tears in her eyes she said, “Daddy, please stop smoking. They told us at school today that smoking could cause cancer.” I haven’t smoked since. Children have a lot of wisdom, don’t they? And as for John — he is married with two boys and a girl. His littlest son, Jesse, has the same ornery grin as his daddy.

“All the troubles of man come from his not knowing how to sit still.” — Blaise Pascal, French philosopher (1623-1662)
Harrah! Hallelujah! The book is done, after months of research and writing. The History of Fort Jennings 1812 -2012 is finished. It’s ready to send to the publisher. The book had its beginning in the dreams of Deb Birkmeier of rural Fort Jennings. That was back two or three years ago, Deb had time on her hands and had to find a project to do, while recovering from back surgery. So she began a listing of everyone in the Fort Jennings community – road by road, street by street, including businesses. She spent hours in old books and telephone books and sitting at her computer. Someone asked “Are you going to have this book for sale?” So. Why not! Deb asked some other historians for help. The project grew and grew. Soon there would be 14 on the book committee. There were many others who assisted in finding information and pictures. A big “Thank You” goes out to them. We finished it this week. This manuscript includes the whole community, town, Jennings Township, part of Jackson Township and the school district. If you or your ancestors lived in or near Fort Jennings, you can find your family name among the pages. Fort Jennings was founded as a supply fort during the War of 1812. It was named for Lt. Col. William Jennings. The book will include 200 years of history, pictures, people and maps. It will include a copy of the 1830 colored map of Ohio, which Jacob Freund carried when he came to Fort Jennings in 1833. This book includes Catholic and Lutheran Church records and history, businesses, school history, Veterans, farming, tidbits and reminiscences of many people. Did you know that the first industry in Jennings Township was the Ash (Esch) Distillery along the canal in Section 18 near Delphos? Corn whiskey was necessary for medicinal purposes. It was the cure-all for almost everything. Did you know that the east half of Delphos was once in Putnam County? Everything east of the canal, up to State Road was part of Jennings Township. This changed when Auglaize County was formed.

IT WAS NEWS THEN
One Year Ago • The United States Postal Service announced Wednesday night that it will close its processing center in Lima. Its district representative said that the post office will save $2.2 million annually but cannot substantiate the claim. 25 Years Ago — 1986 • Rod Bowersock, Lincolnview basketball standout, has announced his decision to enter Defiance College this fall. Rod earned first team District 8 and first team Northwest Conference honors and is Lincolnview’s all-time leading scorer with 1,047 points. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Randy Bowersock of Middle Point. • St. John’s placed 11th in the district meet and qualified two people for the regional meet at Shawnee. Matt Scarr qualified for the boys in the 1600 meters. Bev Fisher will compete in the discus. Fisher threw 106’4” to place first at districts. Liz Wrocklage will compete in the 100 hurdles. She took fourth at districts with a time of 16.55. • Columbus Grove High School will hold its 108th baccalaureate and commencement at 3 p.m. June 1 at the high school athletic field. Class speakers will be Brenda Schroeder, Thomas Liebrecht, Gina Schroeder and David Tabler. 50 Years Ago — 1961 • Over three and one-half miles of multiflora rose plants, the largest single planting in Putnam County, has been completed on property owned by Libby, McNeill and Libby of Leipsic. Gerald Palmer, Putnam County game protector, stated that the plantings will provide undisturbed nesting areas, and that the song birds will about double and the game birds should triple in the area. • Delegates to the 62nd annual convention of the Ohio State Council, Knights of Columbus to be held May 28-29, will gather at the Sheraton Hotel in Cincinnati today.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
The safe in the office of the Ottoville grist mill, owned by Benedict Wannemacher, was blown open Sunday morning and robbed of part of its contents. At 2 a.m. Charles Wannemacher was awakened by a terrific explosion, and it was soon found that the noise came from the grist mill. An investigation was made and it was found that the safe in the office had been cracked. The robbers used nitroglycerine. The safe was badly wrecked, but the robbers were frightened away having gotten sixty cents worth of revenue stamps and less than a dollar in pennies. There was quite a sum of money in a small strong box inside the safe but the fellows didn’t have time to get to it. It is reported that the fellows were followed to a point near Kalida where they took

Knights win on 2-out, bottom-of-7th-inning rally
By Kirk Dougal Times Bulletin Editor firstname.lastname@example.org FINDLAY - There is an old saying that if you continue to coach long enough, eventually you will see it all. On Friday evening in Findlay in a regional semifinal softball game between Crestview and North Baltimore, Knights’ coach Owen Pugh got to add one more item to the list of things that he had finally witnessed. His team watched a 12-7 lead in the top of the seventh morph into a 1-run deficit - only to have the Lady Knights rally in the bottom of the inning for two runs with two outs and a 14-13 win. “No I haven’t,” answered Pugh when asked if he had ever been involved in a tournament game like the one he had just witnessed. “And I’ll tell you what. I haven’t been involved in too many games where I was up five runs going into the seventh and couldn’t get three outs, either. I really thought going into that seventh inning that, three outs, so what if they score two or three runs. No big deal. But we just could not get an out and then we couldn’t get two outs. (North Baltimore) can sure hit the ball.” Hitting was not a problem for either team on the night but the game was decided by defense and Crestview was able to come up with the plays in the field when they needed them. Trailing 12-7 in their final at-bats, the Lady Tigers’ Ricci Emahiser led off with a walk. She was followed by a Jessica Frost single up the middle and a Brianna Ferguson single to left, plating Emahiser. That rolled over the top of the batting order and Mackenzie Carpenter who walked for the third time in the game to load the bases. A groundout to the right side scored one more run before Andrea Smith doubled off the leftfield wall, scoring two more and suddenly putting the tying run at second with only one out. Up to the plate walked clean-up hitter Emily Stewart who already had two hits and two RBI’s to her credit on the day. After Crestview pitcher Madison Preston worked her to two strikes, Stewart fouled off three strikes before launching a two-run home run to right-center, sending her teammates and the Lady Tiger fans into hysterics, and completing the come-from-behind rally for a 13-12 lead. Another walk and then an error on a ground ball put two more Tigers on the bases but Preston gutted out the inning, getting a ground ball to second for an out and then a pop up to short to end the frame. Although the damage appeared to have been done, in a game with as many momentum shifts as this one had, the Crestview team just calmly went back to work. Holly Genth led off with a walk and stole second on the first pitch. No one from North Baltimore covered second on the play, however, and the throw sailed into centerfield. Genth scrambled to her feet and sprinted to third as the tying run. Left-handed hitting Taylor Springer tried to pull the ball to the right side to score her but she got under it for the first out. Up came lead-off hitter Taylor Hamrick who lay down a safety-squeeze bunt but the ball hit in front of the plate and just died. When Tiger first baseman Smith picked it up, she turned and faked the throw to first. Genth took off for the plate and Smith was close enough to jump and tag her out. It appeared Crestview’s best chance at a rally had disappeared with that play. But Danica Hicks immediately brought the excitement back by hitting a long fly ball to rightfield that just missed leaving the yard. By the time the ball stopped rattling around on the warning track, Morgan McClure, who was running for Hamrick, had motored all the way around to home and Hicks was sliding into third with a triple. Reigning Northwest Conference Player of the year Jessica Burger settled into the batter’s box with two outs and the winning run just down the line. She saw a pitch she liked and smoked a ground ball to third, hitting the third baseman on the heel of the glove. The ball bounced over to the fence in front of the North Baltimore dugout and Hicks scored, beginning the Knights’ celebration. Burger said there was only one thing on her mind when she went to the plate the last time. “I just wanted to put the ball in play and get Dani in,” she said. For Coach Pugh, he liked the professional at-bat he received from Hicks when she did not try to do too much and drove the ball the opposite way for the triple. “When she come up to bat there, I said ‘this would be a good time for her to hit that ball to rightfield with that pitch’ because you know they are going to throw it (on the outside corner).” There was a lot of offensive fireworks long before the seventh inning and they also involved a Hicks. Trailing 4-1 in the bottom of the third inning, Danica Hicks walked and then moved to second on a wild pitch. Burger then hit another ball hard enough to cause an error, this one on the second baseman, and Hicks came around to score. Mackenzie Richard followed with a ground ball to the pitcher’s left who then tried to turn and throw out Burger at third. The toss went down the leftfield line, scoring Burger. Preston followed with a single which brought the freshman Kirstin Hicks to the plate. After the game the Crestview coaches pointed out that Kirstin had started the year hot at the plate, cooled off and made adjustments, and caught fire again in the tournament, proven by the mammoth home run she hit at Elida in the district semifinals last week. She did it again here, roping a three-run line drive homer to centerfield and giving the Knights a lead they would not relinquish until the seventh inning. In all, Crestview scored eight runs in the inning and setting up the gap that North Baltimore would close late. The younger Hicks also had a two-run single in the sixth inning. Even though the Crestview players’ smiles were still big and the enormity of the comeback was still fresh, their thoughts were already turning to the next step. “It is huge to come out on top,” said Pugh. “But now

It’s too bad someone had to lose that game.” Madison Preston picked up the win for Crestview, going all seven innings and surrendering 13 runs, 12 earned, on 14 hits, four strikeouts and eight walks. In a sign of what the Tiger pitchers had to throw through in the game, the error on Burger’s grounder in the last inning that scored Hicks was the seventh of the game for North Baltimore. Jessica Frost went the first three innings, allowing nine runs but only four were earned. Leona Euler picked up the loss, going the final 3 2/3, giving up five runs with three earned. Jessica Burger, Madison Preston and Kirstin Hicks all had two hits on the day. Burger had a single, double and two RBI’s. Preston had two singles and Kirstin Hicks had a single, home run and five RBI’s on the afternoon. Every North Baltimore starter except for one had at least one hit in the game. Stewart and Euler both tallied three hits a piece and a home run. Crestview goes right back into action today in the regional finals at Findlay High School at noon. They will take on Fremont St. Joseph who defeated Antwerp, 3-1. The winner will play next week in the state tournament.

so to pass runner-up Tammy Berger of Versailles. “Coach Vaughn (Horstman) always stresses to us that no one should beat us on straightaways. He really prepares is well and we push each other hard in practice,” Siefker added. “Plus, the mile has always been my favorite event and I wanted to get to state this year and run my last race there. Another great thing is the support I’ve had through my years at Ottoville. That is one thing I will really miss when I graduate. I could hear people cheering for me throughout the treck.” Jefferson senior Bridget Culp is going in a pair of events: grabbing second in the girls 100-meter dash and anchoring the 4x100-meter relay, teaming with junior Kennedy Boggs, sophomore Chelsey Bishiop and senior Morgan Fischbach, to a second as well. “I can’t be disappointed that I finished second to Gretchen Walters. My whole goal has been to get closer and closer to her and I did that again today,” Culp said. “I knew going in she was the girl to beat and I just want to close the gap. “We were disappointed that we didn’t get to state in the 4x2 relay (finishing fifth, with freshman Brooke Teman in for Bishop). It was just one of those races that happens; it just wasn’t the best time to have it happen. We had a chance to think about it before we ran the 4x1 and I told the girls not to let it get to us. We still had the 4x1 and we were going to get to state in that event. It was fuel for us.” Fischbach agreed. “We definitely wanted it even more after the 4x2. I know for me, it was overwhelming not to make it,” she noted. “We have been down to state in the 4x2 since we were freshmen and we wanted it so badly. Perhaps

we wanted it too badly; I think I was too pumped up for it. Going into the 4x1, we knew this could be our last race together, Bridget and I, and that was not how we wanted to end our careers.” Culp summed it up. “My goal was to get to state in four events and now it’s down to two. However, a lot of people never get the chance to go at all, so we’ll give it our best shot; we might be fresher since we don’t have the 4x2 and I don’t have the 200,” she added. The St. John’s boys 4x100meter relay team — junior Chris Will, freshman Tyler Jettinghoff and seniors AJ Klausing and Evan Burgei — clinched second place in that event after that same foursome was denied a state berth in the 4x2 due to being called for passing the baton out of the zone. “That made is mad. We made sure our handoffs were good in the 4x1, to make sure we weren’t DQ’d again,” Burgei explained. “I made it to regionals in the 100 and the 200 but the coaches decided to take a gamble and keep us fresh and focused for the relays. Unfortunately, it didn’t pay off.” Klausing had to skip the 300-meter hurdles as well in order to focus on the relays. “It was tough to not go in the 4x2. It really fueled us for the 4x1,” he said. “Not making it down to state last year in the 4x1 because we got disqualified when the baton was knocked out of our hand, we didn’t want that to happen again. We at least get the chance to go to state in one event.” Ottoville freshman Taylor Mangas moved up from seventh in the prelims that afternoon to third in the girls 300meter hurdles. “I had to run two races today. The first, I was not as warmed us as I should be; the second was much better,” she said. “Coach Sue (Jones) has really worked with me in improving my technique from last year as an eighthgrader to this year. She has helped me to understand the race a lot better. Other than that, as our coaches always tell us, run fast and attack the hurdles. That’s what I did today.” Crestview’s 4x400-meter girls relay of Ami Callow, Layne Callow, Erika Frey and Courtney Perrott finished fourth. Among the locals who placed at regionals but did not advance were: Ottoville’s girls 4x4 relay of Siefker, Mangas and seniors Kari Beining and Natasha Kaufman, fifth; Perrott, sixth in the girls 800-meter run; Fort Jennings sophomore Macy Schroeder, seventh in both the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes; and St. John’s senior Tiffany Recker, eighth in the girls discus. Those that participated in finals but did not place were: Ottoville junior Greg Rue, 9th in the boys shot put; Ottoville sophomore Abby Siefker, 10th in the girls 800meter run; the Jefferson boys 4x1 relay of seniors Mitchell Antalis and Kody Richardson, sophomore Nick Gallmeier and freshman Zavier Buzard, 11th; St. John’s senior Alicia Ankerman, 11th in the girls pole vault; Gallmeier, 12th in the boys 200-meter dash; the St. John’s boys 4x4 relay of senior Scott Klausing and sophomores Mark Boggs, Jake Hays and Jared Knebel, 12th; Fort Jennings senior Ryan Kraner, 14th in the boys 1,600-meter run; and Crestview’s Janelle May, 14th in the girls 1,600-meter run. The state meet begins at 9:30 a.m. Friday.
Jays playing waiting game for regionals
By JIM METCALFE email@example.com DELPHOS — This game was supposed to be over two days ago. However, thanks to the fickle nature of Mother Nature and the raindrops that keep falling, it will hopefully happen later today. The St. John’s baseball team has been playing the waiting game for its Division IV regional semifinal game with Hopewell-Loudon. They are crossing their fingers to see if that game will go off at 4 p.m. today at Patrick Henry High School. However, head coach Dan Metzger isn’t particularly concerned. “If I had a young, inexperienced team, I’d be worried. I have a veteran and experienced team that has been in big games and I think these guys will handle this well,” Metzger asserted. “This has been a tough spring all year; the games have been onagain, off-again and it’s been tough to get into a consistent rhythm. These guys have handled it well all year and I have no reason to believe that will change.” Still, they are itching to get on the ball field and play the game. “We’ve had some good practices but that is not nearly the same as a game. We have had some live pitching against our junior varsity guys; still, even though it’s better than the batting cage or none at all, it isn’t quite the same,” Metzger said. “We’ve handled it as well as to be expected. We had an intrasquad scrimmage Tuesday and worked on defense Thursday. The key is that Hopewell has had the same problems we’ve had, so that’s even.” Sophomore ace Curtis Geise (5-0, 2.26 ERA; .179 opponent’s batting average, 32 strikeouts, 24 walks) will be the starter, with Austin Vogt (3-2, 2.25 ERA, .227 BA), 37 Ks) in the ready. However, all pitchers are available. “Those two have pitched plenty of big games the last two years. The only thing I worry about is the adrenaline will be pumping and Curtis will be high in the strike zone until he settles down,” Metzger continued. “Of course, so will their pitcher. From what we’ve seen of Hopewell, they are very disciplined at the plate and they go the opposite way very well, a sign of a very good offensive team. They have a lot of good athletes; you can tell when they are in the field. Plus, their catcher has one of the best arms we’ve seen; for a team like us that likes to use its speed and be aggressive on the bases, that is something you have to be wary of.” The Jays (15-4) have compiled 56 stolen bases, only being caught four times, led by the 16 each of senior shortstop Ty Bergfeld and junior centerfielder Tanner Calvelage. They sport a .310 batting average, with senior Jordan Leininger leading the pack at .453 (3 home runs, 9
Bruins reach Stanley Cup finals, top Lightning 1-0
By HOWARD ULMAN The Associated Press playoff failure. They blew a 3-0 lead in games and a 3-0 lead in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, losing 4-3 to the Philadelphia Flyers. This season, they squandered 3-2 series leads in the first round against Montreal and then against Tampa Bay. But they beat the Canadiens 4-3 in overtime in Game 7, with Horton scoring the winning goal. Then the forward, playing in the postseason for the first time in his career after five seasons with the Florida Panthers, came through again with his eighth playoff goal. So has Thomas — all season. The 37-year-old goalie led the NHL in goals-against average and save percentage after missing all of last year’s playoffs because of a hip injury. After offseason surgery, he was as good as ever and that includes the 2008-09 season when he won the Vezina Trophy as the league’s top goalie. He made 24 saves in his third career playoff shutout and second of the Lightning series. Horton’s goal spoiled an outstanding game by Lightning goalie Dwayne Roloson, who stopped 37 shots. Horton beat Roloson by deflecting a pass from left to right across the slot from David Krejci. His goal set off a loud celebration among Bruins’ fans, who have waited a long time for a trip to the finals. Andrew Ference started the only scoring play on the left side behind the red line with a pass to Krejci, also on the left. Horton was on the same side but when Krejci got the puck, Horton veered to the right. Krejci skated in and threaded a pass to Horton, who put the puck in the open side between Roloson and the left post. Roloson fell to 7-1 in elimination games during his career, including 4-1 this postseason. Tampa Bay rallied from a 3-1 deficit to beat Pittsburgh in the first round, with Roloson shutting out the Penguins 1-0 in Game 7 on the road. But after beat-
doubles, 34 runs batted in, 13 runs scored) and Calvelage’s .418 (5 doubles, 16 RBIs, 22 runs scored). Vogt is at .340 (6 doubles, 16 RBIs), while Bergfeld at .333 (4 doubles, 23 runs). “The key for us offensively is to settle in early and not go chasing. That is one thing we have done well; not chase pitches out of the strike zone, especially early in the atbat,” Metzger added. “Their pitcher is 7-0 and has a 3.80 ERA with 60 strikeouts, so that will be key. We need to make sure we are swinging at good pitches, our pitches, and still be disciplined. We have faced good pitchers like this all year; you don’t expect anything less this time of the year, especially in the regionals. “We’re excited to be playing this late. We made it to the regional finals last year. We also need to make sure we make the defensive plays that we need to; we don’t want to give them extra outs; this time of year, those send you home.”
BOSTON — Vezina Trophy finalist Tim Thomas stopped every shot and gave the Boston Bruins a chance for the biggest prize of all — the Stanley Cup. Forget their 20-year absence from the finals. Don’t talk about their epic playoff collapse of last season. And certainly don’t mention their powerless power play. None of that matters after the Bruins beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 1-0 on Friday night on Nathan Horton’s goal with 7:33 left in the penalty-free Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. The Bruins will open the Stanley Cup finals in Vancouver against the Western Conference champion Canucks on Wednesday. Boston won its most recent championship in 1972 and hadn’t reached the finals since 1990, when it lost to the Edmonton Oilers. The Bruins left far behind the specter of last year’s
ing the Bruins in Game 6 to force one more contest, the Lightning’s comeback fortunes changed. Tampa Bay forward Steven Stamkos was struck in the face by a puck early in the second period and briefly left the game. There was some blood on the ice when the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2008 got up and skated quickly to his bench, holding his face. He missed about five minutes of game time, then returned with a full cage face shield in place of the visor he had been wearing. Boston’s Milan Lucic had the best scoring opportunity in the first when Krejci fed him for a breakaway. But Lucic shot the puck into Roloson with just under five minutes left. The Bruins also had solid chances late in the second. Roloson made a pad save on Mark Recchi’s shot from a few feet away then made another when Recchi shot the rebound with just under 2 1/2 minutes left in the period.

While writing and compiling this history we well remember and appreciate the historians who have gone before us. Their writings and record keeping helped make this book possible. Names that come to mind are: Alfred “Jack” Schimmoeller, Imogene Elwer, Marie Uhrich, Verena Brinkman, Catherine Wieging, Clarence Specht, Norbert Lause, Elmer VonLehmden and the Ottoville historian, Rita Turnwald. Pre-publication orders for the book are being taken at this time. The book will contain at least 325 pages and include over 200 pictures. There will be a hard cover for $45 and the soft cover will cost $35. Contact Judy Wieging at 419-532-2491 or Deb Birkmeier at 419-286-2708 or any member of the book committee. So. What am I going to do now? I’m going to plant flowers, herbs and tomato plants, mow grass, do scrap booking, clean the research clutter off my kitchen table and write a book. Yes! Write a book. It will be the life story of Christine Grothause who grew up in Germany when Hitler came to power. My Uncle Ralph and Aunt Christine live near Nashville, Ind., in the scenic Brown County. Ralph said Christine would like me to do the story so they invited me to spend the week with them to gather up

information and also see the country. We spent a lot of time with the tape recorder, a note book and pen. That was two years ago. I should have had it done by now but my 79-year-old brain sometimes won’t go into high gear. I have a few chapters written and will get back at it tomorrow. That will be a good project to work on this summer, when I become a prisoner of air-conditioning.

men made the mistake of teaming up with a State Detective, who they believed to be an asset to their plan. The would-be robbers and the Chicago Detective spent a day at the Bismark Hotel in Delphos, remaining there until it was time for the work to begin. Just before the set time, the Detective slipped away from his “friends,” and the railroad company detectives informed the men that the jig was up and that they had better make themselves scarce, which they did. They ended it this way because they believed it was the best way to save lives. ---------The First Tavern in Ottoville The very first Catholic settler was Herr Wilhelm Reckart, who shortly after the opening of the canal here at “Sixteen” opened a tavern. The room of the inn was about ten feet long and eight feet wide. It had no window and the only light that came in had to come through the door or cracks between the logs from which the hut was built. Many coins were coming from thirsty travelers who were passing through. At that time the canal was the only transportation between Dayton and Toledo and all travelers between the Ohio River and Erie were obligated on account of the lock to stop at Herr Reckart’s tavern. In those days Fanatiers were not present; therefore, it was to no surprise that little by little, Herr Reckart’s Nectar became famous. His trouser pockets gradually filled up with hard cash. The last lock tender at Ottoville was Wm. Ulrich. Since the canal was a dying entity, he also had to take care of the canal bridges in town. In 1913 when the canal could no longer be used as a boat channel, his job was also at an end. He did odd jobs around town in his older years. From History of Ottoville by Rita Turnwald

radio business in Lima, Van Wert and Fort Wayne. I got to shake their hand, ask them questions as any kid would do. That’s really what I wanted to do.” After covering city council meetings for the better part of three decades, Ulm took a brave step and ran for the seat of council president. This year he is finishing his tenth and final year in that post. “I’m not one of those people who can say I think things should be a certain way with-
out getting involved with both feet. That’s why the whole council thing happened,” related Ulm. “It has been a challenging, but very gratifying experience. I am really, really pleased with the things that have been accomplished over the last 10 years. But it’s time for somebody else to get involved, and I hope somebody will.” Each morning, Ulm and his guide dog, Haley make the one-mile walk to the radio station. Haley, a black lab, is his fifth guide dog since 1975. “I don’t worry about gas
prices, I worry about what dog food costs!” he quips. Once at work, Haley heads to one room while Ulm starts preparing the news. During a weekday morning, Ulm is heard on five stations owned by Maverick Media -- WDOH Lite Rock 107.1, 92.1 The Frog, ESPN Radio 93.1, Eagle 104.9, and 940 WCIT. Most of the newscasts are pre-recorded in the Delphos studio since they are aired at similar times on the different stations. Ulm’s office has a few adaptations to make things easier. His computer has softBy Bernice Bede Osol
ware that speaks what is on the screen. He uses a Braille writer and has a computer printer that prints in Braille. Other than those items, the radio newsroom and studio looks like any other. Although Ulm does admit there is one other difference, “The only thing you might notice if you come in the building when I’m here instead of someone else is the lights probably won’t be on!” Delphos is a comfortable place for Ulm. He and his wife of 34 years, Kathy, decided long ago that this would be
their home, and despite some offers of radio jobs in larger cities for more money, Delphos has been and will continue to be their home. For a man with many talents and interests, Ulm seems very at-home with his world. He enjoys the routine of his life, partially because he has many interests. When one thing gets boring, there is always something else to do. And he is always up for a challenge, “If you tell me there’s something that’s difficult or impossible to do, I’m likely to figure a way around it,” he said.
Sunday, May 29, 2011 Overall conditions in the next solar cycle look more hopeful than they have in some time. More than one big break could come about through already established relationships in which you’ve proven your worth. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Because you are willing to try something new and different that others believe won’t work, your chances for outdistancing your contemporaries look exceptionally good today. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Use your head to solve a problem that has been plaguing your efforts and appears to have no reasonable solution. The answer is there, waiting to be unearthed and utilized. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Starting now, for a brief period you are likely to be luckier than usual where second efforts are concerned, so it behooves you to try, try again. Utilize all possibilities before giving up. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t be reluctant to ask for suggestions and don’t ignore any advice being offered. An experienced person could save you a lot of time and effort if you’re willing to listen. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Even if it is hard to distinguish between a great idea and a goofy one, don’t treat any suggestion with indifference. It might be the wacky one that works. SCORIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Seek out the cooperation you must have in order to finish a project that needs immediate attention. You’ll get it if you first fill people in on what you require. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Although at times you can be both a strong starter and a weak finisher because you lose interest too fast, you’ll at last be able to complete many of those projects you’ve left dangling. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Establish a specific course, but leave plenty of room to make revisions as needed. It is extremely likely that unexpected, propitious developments could occur that you’ll want to partake in. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Dame Fortune is likely to favor you in an activity where money is an issue. Whatever it is that you’re involved in could generate much more than you ever expected. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Without realizing it, the course you establish for yourself could affect your life for a long time to come. Thus, even if you think the project at hand is only temporary, do your best. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -There is a chance you could reap some kind of benefit from something you had totally written off. Although it will be a complete surprise to you, you will happily welcome it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Go ahead and try that new approach, because there’s a larger than average chance of it working out much better than the old way you’ve always done things. Monday, May 30, 2011 Although lots of hard work will play a major role in enabling you to grow your assets during coming months, your own ingenuity will also be a big factor. Thus, it may be important for you to act upon your ideas instead of merely sitting on them. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Even if what you promised to do turns out to be inconvenient, to your credit you’ll not go back on your word. It’ll be a tribute to your honor and commitment. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Get in touch with someone who has been on your mind lately, because chances are there is a good reason to do so. Something important might need to be shared. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You won’t allow anything to distract you from achieving your objectives. By being clever, bold and persistent, you’ll employ all the requirements needed to be a winner. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You tend to evaluate circumstances both logically and philosophically, and because of this, you’ll instinctively know how to handle any critical development that might arise. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- What makes you so successful with whatever it is you attempt to do is your ability to assess life realistically, without expecting anything more than you have rightfully earned. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You’re comfortable to be around because of your willingness to adjust to other people’s view and opinions today. This easy going and mature nature makes you an exceptionally good companion. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Having to work a bit harder than usual today won’t be a negative condition that you’ll resent. The gratification and rewards that come from completing difficult tasks will be worth it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -A friend of yours will be inspired by another to strive for greater heights than usual. If you like what he or she is doing, speak up. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Focus your energies on trying to help someone for whom you feel responsible. Any measure you take, no matter how small, will be effective in getting him or her to go the distance. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Honesty is the best policy, and friends will respect your views and suggestions, even if it is painful for them to hear what you have to say. You’ll benefit in the long run by doing so. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Regardless of the nature of your goals, you’re likely to hit the road running and get off to a great start. This will do wonders for accomplishing your purposes for the week. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Your strongest qualities are itching to show their stuff, so it’s likely that you will deliberately seek conditions that will test your mettle, and accomplish something big in the process. Tuesday, May 31, 2011 Your material circumstances could brighten considerably in the next year, through the good graces of people who like you. If you want to get ahead, it’s important to make yourself accepted by those who work at your side. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It isn’t that you’ll lack the capacity to overcome obstacles when you are challenged; it’s more likely that you won’t accept that there are any problems in the first place. Be realistic. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you discount your own worth and place a trifle too much importance on winning the approval of others, you won’t be a happy person. Strive to please only yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Keep outsiders out of your commercial or financial matters as best you can, because what they want you to do may be constructive for them, but not necessarily good for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Certain associates and/or companions aren’t likely to be in harmony with your aims, and could drag their feet and slow you down if you’re not careful. Go it alone as much as you can. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you are more motivated to partake in inessential activities than you are in serious endeavors, don’t expect to get anything important done. Try not to fritter away the day. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -When something is at stake that affects your personal interests, chances are you’ll do quite well, but don’t expect to be equally adept when carrying out a project for others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Talk over money matters with the person who shares your expenses before purchasing something that is extremely costly. They might not want any part of it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Friends you enjoy on a social basis might admire your repartee, but don’t expect the same acceptance from coworkers. They’ll appreciate a lot less wind and a little more work. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Trouble is in the making if you fail to spell out in advance just who is to pay for what when at a social gettogether. Someone might think the costs are far too expensive for his or her taste. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Remember, friends can come and go, but your family is the rock that weathers the test of time. Be careful not to show more favoritism to a newcomer than you do to your own kin. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Because you are likely to be challenged on your ideas, it is important that you have faith and the fortitude to rightfully stand up for them. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It isn’t always a good idea to mix business with pleasure, and it might be one of those times when an attempt to do so will result an unrewarding experience. Do one or the other.

Woman tempted to play with fire
Dear Annie: A few years ago, I had a one-night stand with my married boss while attending a workrelated seminar in another town. On the third evening, we had dinner and drinks, and one thing led to another. We had always been attracted to each other and co-workers noticed all the flirting. We resumed our work relationship, although we stopped having occasional lunches together like we used to. He told me once that what we did was wrong and it took him a long time to get past the guilt. Apparently, his wife always suspected that

Judge opens door for corporate campaign cash
By MATTHEW BARAKAT Associated Press ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A U.S. judge has ruled that the campaign finance law banning corporations from making contributions to federal candidates is unconstitutional, saying that a recent Supreme Court decision gives companies the same right to donate as individual citizens enjoy. In a ruling issued late Thursday, U.S. District Judge James Cacheris tossed out part of an indictment against two people charged with illegally reimbursing donors to Hillary Clinton’s 2006 Senate and 2008 presidential campaigns. Cacheris says that under the Supreme Court’s landmark Citizens United decision last year, corporations have the right to give to federal candidates. The ruling from the federal judge in Virginia is the first of its kind. The Citizens United case had applied only to corporate spending on campaign activities by independent groups, such as ads run by third parties to favor one side, not to direct contributions to the candidates themselves. Cacheris noted in his ruling that only one other court has addressed the issue in the wake of Citizens United ruling. A federal judge in Minnesota ruled the other way, allowing a state ban on corporate contributions to stand. “(F)or better or worse, Citizens United held that there is no distinction between an individual and a corporation with respect to political speech,” Cacheris wrote in his 52-page opinion. “Thus, if an individual can make direct contributions within (the law’s) limits, a corporation cannot be banned from doing the same thing.” In court papers, federal prosecutors defending the law said overturning the ban on corporate contributions would ignore a century of legal precedent. “Defendants would have the court throw out a century of jurisprudence upholding the ban on corporate political contributions, by equating expenditures — which the Court struck down in Citizens United — with contributions. This is, however, equating apples and oranges,” prosecutor Mark Lytle wrote in his argument to keep the indictment intact. In the count that was tossed

Gas prices draining family budgets
By JONATHAN FAHEY Associated Press NEW YORK — There’s less money this summer for hotel rooms, surfboards and bathing suits. It’s all going into the gas tank. High prices at the pump are putting a squeeze on the family budget as the traditional summer driving season begins. For every $10 the typical household earns before taxes, almost a full dollar now goes toward gas, a 40 percent bigger bite than normal. Households spent an average of $369 on gas last month. In April 2009, they spent just $201. Families now spend more filling up than they spend on cars, clothes or recreation. Last year, they spent less on gasoline than each of those things. Jeffrey Wayman of Cape Charles, Va., spent Friday riding his motorcycle to North Carolina’s Outer Banks, a day trip with his wife. They decided to eat snacks in a gas station parking lot rather than buy lunch because rising fuel prices have eaten so much into their budget over the past year that they can’t ride as frequently as they would like. “We used to do it a lot more, but not as much now,” he said. “You have to cut back when you have a $480 gas bill a month.” Alex Martinez, a senior at Arcadia High School outside Los Angeles, said his family’s trips to San Francisco, which they usually take once or more a year, are on hold. As he stopped at a gas station to put $5 of fuel in his car — not much more than a gallon — he said the high prices are crimping social life for him and his friends. “We’re always worrying, ‘How are we going to get home. We’ve got less than half a gallon left,”’ Martinez said. “We definitely can’t go out as much, and we can’t go as far.” As Memorial Day weekend opens, the nationwide average for a gallon of unleaded is $3.81. Though prices have drifted lower in recent days, analysts expect average price for 2011 to come in higher than the previous record, $3.25 in 2008. A year ago, gas cost $2.76. The squeeze is happening at a time when most people aren’t getting raises, even as the economy recovers. “These increases are not something consumers can shrug off,” says James Hamilton, an economics professor at the University of California, San Diego, who studies gas prices. “It’s a key part of the family budget.”
out, defendants William P. Danielczyk Jr. and Eugene R. Biagi were charged with helping funnel corporate funds to the presidential campaign of Clinton, now the U.S. secretary of state. Specifically, they were charged with using money from the corporation they controlled, Galen Capital Group, to reimburse individuals who made contributions in their own names. Peter Carr, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Alexandria, which is prosecuting the case along with the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section, said Friday that the office is reviewing the ruling. Prosecutors have the option to appeal the ruling to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond. Defense lawyers, though, said the implications of the Citizens United case are clear. “Corporate political speech can now be regulated, only to the same extent as the speech of individuals or other speakers,” Biagi’s lawyer, public defender Todd Richman, wrote in court papers. “That is because Citizens United establishes that there can be no distinction between corporate and other speakers in the regulation of political speech.”

proud they were of me and I still write my math teacher Mrs. (Doris) Shawley almost every month,” she said. Kroeger began her career in another state before coming home. “I have taught 30 of 31 years at Ottoville High School. I started teaching English and science, picked up health, then reading and will end teaching all middle school English,” she said. “For 29 years, I have also been the science fair advisor. Sr. Barbara Jean Bach and I were able to start Junior High Fun Fridays and the annual dance. I have also organized the pop tab contest and penny stall each year. For the last five years, I have had the privilege of being the Scholastic Bowl advisor.” Her memories are also full of fun trips and fruit.
“We’ve had a lot of fun field trips and junior high dances; they may stand around for a little while until they loosen up but then they get out there. One of my most memorable experiences was on my birthday one year. My junior high kids brought fruit to school. When I had my back turned to write something down on the chalk board, one of the students yelled out ‘fruit roll’ and all this fruit came rolling up to the front of the room and they sang Happy Birthday. It was funny watching a couple kids flip bananas to the front of the room. I don’t know if they thought I was fruity or what; I have no idea what the fruit was all about. It’s just something they thought of,” she said. Like all veteran teachers, Kroeger has seen some of the biggest changes to education stem from the role of government. Teaching to standardized tests and
meeting other regulations and standards has been significant but so has changes to the student-teacher ratio. “We have much smaller classes now. I think my largest class was 63 and the smallest was 13 students. We follow the same guidelines regardless of class size but with smaller classes, I can give more individualized attention. I can spend more time on material, as well as go more slowly if I need to and this makes students’ learning experience different but my job is much the same,” she said. One of the hardest things to leave behind when she closes the classroom door for good is the kinship she shares with her fellow-teachers. “There is a lot of togetherness here; the teachers are close to each other and I’m getting second generation students whose parents I once taught. It’s going to be really hard to walk out that last day,” she concluded.
