District needs bus drivers

BY NANCY SPENCER DELPHOS Those with a commercial drivers license may want to contact Delphos City Schools Superintendent Frank Sukup about sub and regular bus driver positions open in the district. Sukup told board members at Mondays meeting he has very few subs and several regular drivers have expressed a desire to either retire or seek other positions. We dont have a problem right now but if we have several drivers off, we could run in to one, Sukup said. Those interested can call Sukup at 418-692-2509. Treasurer Brad Rostorfer presented the new five-year forecast; he will submit it to the Ohio Department of Education later this month. The final numbers indicate a General Fund balance of $266,556 on June 30, 2013; $180,569 on June 30, 2013; a negative $414,844 on June 30, 2014; a negative $1,413,382 on June 30, 2015; and a negative $2,646,783 on June 3, 2016.

Death warrant signed for killer of Ohio mom, kids

BY BRENDAN FARRINGTON The Associated Press and her daughters, Christe, 14, and Michelle, 17. He stripped them from the waist down, bound them with duct tape and yellow rope and tied concrete blocks to ropes around their necks before throwing them overboard into Tampa Bay, according to authorities. But the bodies, despite being weighted, floated to the surface. Prosecutors werent certain whether Rogers and her daughters were alive or dead when they were thrown into the bay. The cause of death was either strangulation from the ropes or drowning, authorities said. Rogers, who had gone with her children to Tampa en route back to Willshire after visiting Disney World, had stopped and asked Chandler for directions to her Tampa motel on June 1, 1989. She and her daughters disappeared that night. The motel manager contacted police after maids noticed no one had been in the room

Few clues in baby disappearance

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Authorities searching for a missing baby in Kansas City have marched shoulderto-shoulder through acres of woods, rappelled down cliffs and combed through landfills. Theyve interrogated her parents for hours and called in firefighters to search a 36-foot well that seemed like a possible place to hide a childs body. But after receiving more than 300 tips and chasing down many others, police still have no idea what happened to Lisa Irwin, a fairhaired, big-eyed baby, whose first birthday is now only a month away. A full week has passed since Lisas parents, Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley, reported their daughter missing. Jeremy returned home from a late shift at work Oct. 4 and told police he found the house lights on, a window tampered with and his child gone. Police have since searched the home with metal detectors, and FBI and police reenacted a possible abduction, all done while camera crews filmed from the street. Police spokesman Capt. Steve Young has said police are pursuing all leads and taking a no-holds barred approach to the investigation. I challenge you to name something, and I can assure you we have done it twice, Young said early in the investigation. But he has also said all along that he and other police cant comment on the investigation. Lisas parents appeared on television several times that first week but have since

For The Record


retreated from the media, saying they want to focus all their attention on finding Lisa. They declined to comment Tuesday. A relative said family members had watched part of the well search on television. A private security consultant said Wednesday that a high-asset family he knows has hired him to investigate the babys disappearance. Bill Stanton, of New York, said he would be working on the case for an undetermined amount of time and that hes hopeful this child is safe and alive. He would not identify who hired him but says it was not the childs family. A spokesman for the babys family said Stanton would be handling media questions, but did not comment on Stantons role, if any, in the investigation.

Ohio Turnpike crashes rise with new speed limit


Ohio group claims anti-union ad stole grandmothers image

By ANDY BROWNFIELD Associated Press COLUMBUS The increasingly bitter ballot fight over the possible repeal of the states new collective bargaining law had both sides sparring Tuesday over starring characters in each others television ads on the issue. The group that wants the law repealed says its opponents stole footage of a Cincinnati great-grandmother from one of its ads without permission, while the group campaigning to keep it in place says a firefighter from its opponents first TV spot gave the media misleading information about his public health benefits. The law bans public worker strikes and limits the collective bargaining abilities of more than 350,000 teachers, firefighters, police officers and other public employees around the state. An ad opposing the law by union-backed We Are Ohio features 78-year-old Marlene Quinn thanking firefighters for saving her great-granddaughter Zoey from a fire. In the ad, Quinn asks voters to repeal the union law, which she said will lead to fewer firefighters. Republican- and businessbacked Building a Better Ohio, which supports the new law, uses the same footage in its ad but cuts out Quinns repeal call. I think that it shows that they are willing play tricks, to do anything to win this campaign, including taking a great-grandmothers words and twisting them, said We Are Ohio spokeswoman Melissa Fazekas. In a statement, Quinn said: Ive lived a long time and seen a lot of things, but Ive never seen a group of people sink so low. I think its dishonest and downright deceitful that they would use footage of me to try to play tricks and fool voters. We Are Ohio has sent a letter to TV stations asking them to pull the Building a Better Ohio ad off the airwaves and is looking at its legal options. So far, eight stations have removed it. We are Ohio also has an online petition asking TV stations to take down the ad. Former Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that the use of Quinns image in the Building a Better Ohio ad was deceitful and dishonorable. Strickland speculated that it could cause a backlash against the laws supporters. I think it could be the turning point in the campaign, quite frankly, he said. What they have done here, I think, demonstrates the level of deceitfulness that they will use in order to try to win. This is really as blatant as anything Ive seen, Strickland said. He said the supporters purposefully distorted the womans image and exploited her. It will say something about the character of the governor and others, if they do not, in my judgment, step up and very publicly say that this is wrong and disassociate themselves from it. Rob Nichols, a spokesman for Republican Gov. John Kasich, declined to comment. Building a Better Ohio wont be pulling the ad and is sending a letter to stations telling them why it is legal, spokeswoman Connie Werhkamp said. We strongly believe that the victims story actually makes the case for voting yes on the law, she said. This is just a trend again that their campaign is based on distorting reality and relying on a campaign of misinformation. Building a Better Ohio earlier in the day alleged that a Cincinnati firefighter featured in We Are Ohios first ad gave incorrect information to multiple media outlets about how much he paid for his health benefits. Firefighter Doug Stern reportedly told members of the media he paid 20 percent of his health-insurance premiums, but The Columbus Dispatch reported that Cincinnati firefighters pay 5 percent of the premium. On Tuesday night, Stern defended himself, clarifying that he pays 20 percent of his health care costs, not of insurance premiums. Stern said his policy requires him to pay the first $600 in health care costs and then 20 percent of additional costs up to a total of $6,000 out of pocket. As such, Stern said, the new law wont add up to any cost savings for Cincinnati. There are no real cost savings to the bill, he said. What theyre calling reasonable reforms arent reforming anything. Fazekas said she couldnt comment on Building a Better Ohios accusations without first talking to Stern. Im not getting into a back-and-forth with them, she said. What they did with this ad and attacking a firefighter is low, and they should be ashamed of themselves.


COLUMBUS (AP) The number of crashes and the amount of commercial traffic reported along the Ohio Turnpike rose slightly during the first six months of its higher 70 mph speed limit compared with the same period last year, according to data from turnpike officials and the State Highway Patrol. The limit increased in April from 65 mph for the 241-mile toll road that connects the Midwest and the East Coast, allowing drivers to legally zip along at 70 mph for the first time in more than three decades and adding Ohio to more than two dozen states that have that speed limit. Some turnpike officials and other supporters of the change hoped it would lure trucks back to the toll road from parallel routes that run through smaller communities and may be less suited for large vehicle traffic. The Ohio Trucking Association opposed the change, arguing it might lead to more crashes as vehicles zigzag past slower-traveling trucks that top out at speeds several notches below 70 mph. If theres a road thats going to be at 70 mph, the Ohio Turnpike is definitely engineered and maintained for it, highway patrol Capt. Chris Zurcher said. He noted that wet weather and construction work, which also affect crash data, vary from year to year. About 1,270 crashes were recorded on the turnpike from April through September, including two that were fatal, according to the patrol. Thats up from 1,159 during those six months in 2010. The number of speeding citations issued in that time also rose by about 170, patrol data showed. Through early October, 1,912 turnpike crashes were reported. In the past few years, that annual total has ranged from about 2,100 to nearly 2,600. Officials say they need more data to determine whether the recent increases in truck traffic and crashes are linked to the new speed limit. When the limit for commercial vehicles rose from 55 mph to 65 mph in 2004, the patrol found injury and fatal crashes also increased in the following year and a half. Turnpike passenger traffic dropped slightly, possibly affected by a down economy and high gas prices, so turnpike officials see it as a good sign that truck traffic is up, interim executive director Dan Castrigano said. The turnpike recorded more than 21.4 million passenger vehicles from April to September, about 237,000 fewer than in the comparable period last year. It logged about 5.3 million commercial vehicles, an increase of about 95,000.

Congress, Obama can fight or cooperate on jobs

By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press WASHINGTON Congress and the White House face the choice of continued fighting or a shift toward bipartisan bargaining after the Senate voted to kill President Barack Obamas $447 billion jobs plan. Theyre likely to do both as they seek to produce results sought by a discontented public while also drawing bright political lines for voters as the 2012 campaign heats up. Obamas plan died at the hands of Senate Republicans on Tuesday, even though the president had been campaigning for it across the country for weeks. The $447 billion plan died on a 50-49 tally in the 100-member Senate, falling well short of the 60 votes needed to crack a filibuster by Republicans opposed to its stimulus-style spending and tax surcharge for the very wealthy. The tally had been 51-48 but Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., switched his vote to nay to reserve the right to force a re-vote. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., is recovering from surgery and did not vote. Now, the White House and leaders in Congress are already moving on to alternative ways to address the nations painful 9.1 percent unemployment, including breaking the legislation into smaller, more digestible pieces. Today, both the House and Senate are poised to approve long-stalled trade pacts with Korea, Panama and Colombia. Tonights vote is by no means the end of this fight, Obama said in a statement after the vote. Because with so many Americans out of work and so many families struggling, we cant take no for an answer. In the weeks and months ahead, Democrats promise further votes on jobs. But it remains to be seen how much of that effort will involve more campaign-stoked battles with Republicans and how much will include seeking common ground in hopes of passing legislation. Further complicating matters is a deficit supercommittee that is supposed to come up with $1.2 trillion or more in deficit savings some of which Democrats may want to claim for jobs initiatives. Tuesdays tally also shows that Republicans believe they have little to fear by tangling with Obama. The White House appears most confident that it will be able to continue a 2-percentage-point Social Security payroll tax cut through 2012 and to extend emergency unemployment benefits to millions of people if only because, in the White House view, Republicans wont want to accept the political harm of letting those provisions expire. White House officials also are hopeful of ultimately garnering votes for the approval of infrastructure spending and tax credits for businesses that hire unemployed veterans. Obamas plan would have combined Social Security payroll tax cuts for workers and businesses and other tax relief totaling about $270 billion with $175 billion in new spending on roads, school repairs and other infrastructure, as well as unemployment assistance and help to local governments to avoid layoffs of teachers, firefighters and police officers. Obama said the plan more than half the size of his 2009 economic stimulus measure would be an insurance policy against a double-dip recession and that continued economic intervention was essential given slower-thanhoped job growth. Unlike the 2009 legislation, the current plan would be paid for with a 5.6 percent surcharge on income exceeding $1 million. That would be expected to raise about $450 billion over the coming decade. Leaders of the GOPcontrolled House have signaled they support tax cuts for small businesses and changes to jobless insurance to allow states to use unemployment funds for on-the-job training. And theyve indicated theyll be willing to accept an extension of cuts to the Social Security payroll tax. But stimulus-style spending is a nonstarter with the tea party-infused chamber.

But on the first play of the second quarter, Borgerding took a handoff and outraced the Jays secondary on a 65-yard touchdown jaunt. The next time he touched the ball he swept down the sideline on a scoring gallop.

Senate OKs bill to sanction China over currency

Moderately confused

WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate voted Tuesday to threaten China with higher tariffs on Chinese products made cheap through an artificially undervalued currency, which lawmakers blame for destroying American jobs. The House, though, is unlikely to take up the bill, which some American businesses warn could trigger a trade war. The 63-35 vote showed a broad bipartisan consensus that it is time to end diplomatic niceties with China and confront it over its aggressive trade policies. There are always people who dont want to stand up to China and I think they are, frankly, undercutting our ability to stop the hemorrhaging in our manufacturing jobs, said Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said the bill is an important step towards defending American values, confronting Chinas abusive practices and preventing the liquidation of American manufacturing. Still, the bill could die in the House, where a companion measure has the sponsorship of more than half the members but lacks the support of the GOP leadership. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, like the many large multinational companies that oppose the legislation, has said it would be dangerous to dictate another countrys currency policies, and he can prevent the bill from ever being considered. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said Tuesday that the White House should make its position clear before the House acts. The White House and President Barack Obama have not come out against the bill but have shown they are not comfortable with it, saying they are concerned about any legislation that might violate international trade rules. Advocates for the bill say it will make American goods more competitive and support more than 1 million new jobs. Critics warn that it will provoke Chinese retaliation and hurt Americans in one of their fastest-growing markets. Regardless of the outcome, the debate and the vote are giving senators a chance to make clear to the Chinese their frustrations over trade policies that have seen Chinas trade surplus with the United States go from $10 billion 20 years ago to $273 billion last year, delivering painful blows to U.S. manufacturers and their employees. This is a country manipulating its currency for an advantage in the export market, said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. The Chinese manipulation of the yuan has cost this country at least 2 million jobs 41,000 in South Carolina and it is an unfair trade practice in another name. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu criticized the Senate vote on the currency issue in a statement posted to the ministrys website. Under the pretense of addressing the so-called exchange rate imbalance, this resolution is in fact an act of protectionism, and seriously violates World Trade Organization rules, he said. It not only cannot solve the problems in the U.S. economy or unemployment, but will seriously impede Sino-U.S. economic and trade ties and impede the joint efforts that China, the U.S. and the international community have made to enable a strong recovery and the growth of the global economy.

Romney on middle ground: I can work with Democrats

By STEVE PEOPLES and PHILIP ELLIOTT Associated Press nurture an image that hes the partys inevitable nominee. Romney seemed happy to play the part of front-runner in the nearly two-hour debate, sponsored by Bloomberg News and The Washington Post. He joked breezily with the moderators, chided Perry for interrupting him and ignored the Texan when quizzing other contenders. Romneys strategy might carry some risks in a Republican primary process thats dominated by staunch conservatives, especially in the early voting states of Iowa and South Carolina. The Wall Street bailout is a sore point with many such voters. But Romney seemed to sail through the debate largely unscathed, with Cain and Perry scoring few direct hits. The sharpest criticism of his bailout remarks came from former Sen. Rick Santorum, who lags in the polls. Romney said no one likes the idea of bailing out big Wall Street firms. However, he said, many of the actions taken in 2008 and 2009 were needed to keep the dollars value from plummeting and to make sure that we didnt

HANOVER, N.H. Presidential challenger Mitt Romney accused President Barack Obama of failing to lead in a time of economic peril but sounded less conservative than his Republican rivals in their debate Tuesday night, defending the 20082009 Wall Street bailout and declaring he could work with good Democrats. Romney also gave one of his most spirited defenses of his health care initiative when he was Massachusetts governor, legislation that Obama has called a partial blueprint for his own national overhaul. By positioning himself closer to the political center on several points, Romney sought to underscore his claim that he can draw crucial independent voters in next years general election. Hours before the candidates met in Hanover, Romney picked up New Jersey Gov. Chris Christies endorsement.

US aims to punish Iran for Saudi envoy plot

Britains government said today it was consulting with the U.S. and others over new international sanctions against Iran. We would support any measures that help hold Iran accountable for its actions, said Steve Field, spokesman for British Prime Minister David Cameron. Vice President Joe Biden said in a nationally broadcast interview today morning that the United States was working with other nations, saying its critically important that we unite the world in the isolation of Tehran. Biden said the aim of coordinating with other nations is to ensure that whatever action is ultimately taken ... that its not the United States versus Iran. He called the purported plot really over the top. Clinton and other U.S. officials said the alleged plot is a gross violation of international law and further proof that Iran is the worlds leading state sponsor of terrorism, a label Washington has for decades applied to the Iranian government. The officials said it also underscores concerns that despite its deni-

all lose our jobs. The nation was on a precipice, Romney said, and we could have had a complete meltdown. Romney, however, said he disagreed with Obamas actions to shore up General Motors and Chrysler. The administration says the moves were highly successful and much of the federal money has been repaid. Romney said he would work with good Democrats to lead the country out of economic crisis. He said thats what he did as Massachusetts governor and what he would do if he wins the White House. For much of the debate, which focused solely on the economy, the candidates stuck to their economic messages and kept their criticism turned on Obama. The verbal fistfights of the three previous debates didnt occur Tuesday night, even though the first primaries and caucuses are less than 100 days away. Perry pressed Romney on his decision as Massachusetts governor to require residents to obtain health insurance, a central component of Obamas federal plan. als Iran is trying to develop nuclear weapons under cover of a civilian atomic energy program. The idea that they would attempt to go to a Mexican drug cartel to solicit murder-for-hire to kill the Saudi ambassador? Nobody could make that up, right? Clinton said shortly after U.S. prosecutors accused two suspected Iranian agents of trying to murder Saudi envoy Adel Al-Jubeir. The purported plan was to carry out the assassination with a bomb attack while Al-Jubeir dined at his favorite restaurant. Obama called al-Jubeir on Tuesday to declare that the foiled assassination plot was a flagrant violation of U.S. and international law, the White House said. The president expressed solidarity with Saudi Arabia and said he was committed to ensuring the security of diplomats in the United States. White House press secretary Jay Carney disclosed broad outlines of the call in a statement. Irans parliament speaker, Ali Larijani, called the Justice Departments claims a childish game.

WASHINGTON The Obama administration plans to leverage charges that Iran plotted to assassinate Saudi Arabias ambassador to the United States into a new global campaign to isolate the Islamic republic. U.S. officials say the administration will lobby for the imposition of new international sanctions as well as for individual nations to expand their own penalties against Iran based on allegations that Iranian agents tried to recruit a purported member of a Mexican drug cartel to kill the Saudi envoy on American soil. This really, in the minds of many diplomats and government officials, crosses a line that Iran needs to be held to account for, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday. She said she and President Barack Obama want to enlist more countries in working together against what is becoming a clearer and clearer threat from Iran.

Family enjoying Indian Summer

BY LOVINA EICHER We are enjoying beautiful fall weather. Many, many leaves have fallen from our trees this past week, creating such wonderful autumn scenes everywhere. Along with it we have been blessed with some nice, warm sunny weather. Along with the scenery also comes some work in raking up the leaves. The younger children have been having fun making huge piles of leaves and hiding under them. On Friday, my husband Joe didnt have any work at the factory so he tilled the garden, which means that is done for the year. Sons Benjamin and Joseph also helped him haul manure to the garden and the fields. Last week, the girls and I washed all the curtains and windows on the main floor of our house. Since today is another nice laundry day, we are going to wash all the curtains in the bedrooms upstairs. While they are drying, we plan to clean the windows up there. After all those cold wet days in September, it makes us appreciate this October weather even more. We have been eating out on the front porch quite often this past week. A person can just sit out there and just take in all the splendid scenes that our Creator has created. Husband Joe has been doing a lot of grilling outside in the warm weather. Daughter Verena has to have therapy twice a week now since her cast is off. She will get an ankle brace that she will wear inside her shoe to help her support her ankle. She is very worn out after an hour session in therapy. It has kept me busier than usual taking her twice a week but I am glad to see her getting help. We are very thankful that she is not having the post-concussions any more but she does get headaches quite often. Communion services were held in our church district last week. There were three new babies in our church and all of them are neighbors to us. Two of the babies are a set of twins which brings them even more attention. It looks like the mother has her hands full with the twins, a 1 1/2-yearold son and a 5 1/2-yearold daughter. The twins are a boy, Lyndon and a girl, Lanette, Our church is having a diaper shower for them and lots of meals are being taken in. It is a big help to the family at such a time. I did get my red beets and peppers canned last week. I have some butternut squash here that someone gave to us. I would like to cook them and make a puree to use for baking. It tastes very close to pumpkin. Farmers are busy harvesting potatoes, beans and corn. We would like to go pick up potatoes in some fields to have to store for winter use. The picker doesnt get all the potatoes so the farmers let

people go pick up what was missed. Since our potatoes didnt do well, we will be glad to get some. Deer season for bow hunters has also opened. Joe was undecided if he would hunt deer or not. He always hunts with a gun, though, and that season opens up later. It is too nice to be sitting out here writing; time to get started with the laundry. Apple season, though, is still in full swing with lots of fresh cider on the menu and plenty of apples to be made into butter and breads. This is a delicious recipe for a homemade apple bread. Last week I shared apple cake; this recipe is just as a good! APPLE BREAD 1/2 cup of butter or shortening 2 eggs 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 1/2 cups of finely grated apples 1 1/4 cups sugar 2 cups flour 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Sift together all dry ingredients and mix in. Fold in apples. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake 1 hour. Makes one loaf. For photos, videos, and stories about Amish communities across the USA, like The Amish Cook Fan Page on Facebook or visitwww.

Ottoville makes late goal to top Jennings

By MEGAN GREVE The Delphos Herald OTTOVILLE Ottoville junior Anthony Eickholts expression after one of his shots flew wide right summed up his teams sentiments in its boys soccer match against Fort Jennings Tuesday night at Bob Kaple Memorial Stadium: frustration. The Big Green struggled to find the back of the net despite many attempts. In the final two minutes, however, a ripple of shots saw sophomore Alex Horstmans shot go in to give the home team a 1-0 Putnam County League victory. We entered the game tonight with three objectives: play shutdown defense, have a very deliberate passing game and I thought we did those pretty well and we wanted to focus on our finishing, Ottoville head coach Eric Gerker said. Now we did a great job creating the shots but the same thing weve had problems with all year is putting the ball in the back of the net. Ft. Jennings (5-9-1, 2-3 PCL) meanwhile had its own frustrations, keeping Ottoville out of the goal but struggling with passing and adjusting their offense the Big Greens defense. We didnt adjust to their type of play, Ft. Jennings head coach Gregg Luthman said. We tried to beat their weak side but theres that outside back playing a zone and he was picking passes off that we were trying to send over to our outside midfielder on the other side; we didnt make that adjustment. Ottoville (12-3, 3-2 PCL) began the game attacking, having several scoring attempts by the 31st-minute mark. By the end of the half, Big Green senior Kenny Jackson already had several shots caught by Ft. Jennings senior goalie Nick Verhoff (12 saves vs. 13 shots on-goal), while senior teammate Sam Beining had an open opportunity fly high of the goal and another taken away by Musketeer senior Aaron Schnipke. In the end, both teams went to the half scoreless. By the 35th minute of the second half, Jackson and Beining had already had some close calls. In the 20th minute the Musketeers had their first close call of the match when a scuffle at the goal found Ottoville senior goalie Austin Markward (1 saves vs. 1 shot) on the ground but he recovered and kept Ft. Jennings out. One minute later, the visitors came calling again but senior Ethan Schimmoellers shot was deflected; the Musketeers were denied again in the 18th minute. The match went back and forth and seemed destined for a draw until Horstmans shot connected in the final minutes. Attack-wise, we werent making those connections going forward; we have to organize better in the attacking third, Luthman added. I think something we have to work on, being able to recognize the attacking situation and try it once or twice but if its not working try some other things; we werent doing that. But Ottovilles a great team, a great competition, and we almost played them even. The Big Green plays host to New Knoxville on Friday at 6 p.m., while the Musketeers next game is Saturday at 11 a.m. at Shawnee.

Lady Green spoils Senior Night for Jays

By JIM METCALFE DELPHOS St. Johns opens its girls soccer tournament Saturday. Ottoville begins its second season next Tuesday. Both are looking for some momentum and making sure they stay healthy as they finish up regular-season play as the two rivals met up at The Graveyard on a sunny and warm Tuesday afteroon. The Lady Green ruined Senior Night for the Lady Blue Jays with a 5-1 victory. Seven Blue Jays (3-12) played their final home match: Julie Bonifas, Kristie Grothouse, Kait Wrasman, Myriah Jackson, Courtney Grothouse, Jessica Hammons and Katie Evans. Its tough for them to play their final home match e3specially here where weve played the last two seasons and end up losing. They played an awesome match, Jays coach John Munoz noted. We were trying some different things today and it worked for a while but not consistent enough. Also, we were rotating some players in who have been out and are just getting back from injury. We need to see how ready they are. Ottoville head coach Tim Kimmet also has that concern about getting a healthy roster. We lost Abby (Sarka) to an injury Saturday; she was OKd to play but we are going to bring her back slowly, Kimmet explained. We have seven seniors on this team and we have a lot of speed throughout our lineup: forwards, midfield, defense. That paid dividends tonight; we controlled the ball possession. The Lady Green (10-5) controlled the orb throughout the match, outshooting the Blue and Gold 28-12, with three St. Johns keepers: sophomore regular Madison Kreeger (14 saves), and juniors Riley Hamilton (3) and Morgan Musser (3); combining for 20 stops. The Green and Gold got on board at the 35:25 mark when sophomore Kendra Eickholt got possession of the ball on the left wing and her 14-yarder hit the near post and eluded Kreeger for a 1-0 lead. The visitors continued to attack the goal and make things difficult for the Blue Jay goalkeeper and defense. The best chances that the guests had of extending that lead in the first half were at 28:53 and 17:40, when Kreeger deflected attempts by senior Lauren Koch; at 13:49, when Kreeger deflected and finally controlled a 25-yard free kick by senior Kendra Krouskop; in a 10-second span at 7:30 when defenders stopped in-close tries by junior Rachel Beining and senior Holly Von Sossan; and at 6:52, when freshman Haley Landwehr was denied on a point-blank shot by Kreeger. The Jays had a couple of chances in the first half, getting a header from C. Grothouse that was denied by senior keeper Lauren Kramer at 32:46; at 21:07, when sophomore Sam Bonifas missed just wide left from the right post; and at 1:45, when Jacksons 20-yarder was denied by the keeper. The Lady Green controlled the orb even more for most of the second half and continued to attack the goal.

Five Lady Bearcats: seniors Taylor Elchert (5 kills), Devan Hanjora, Jackie Bowsher (7 assists), Morgan Pugh and Shanna German; played their final home matches. Pauldings power at the net was evident from the start as the Lady Bearcats (4-18, 1-8 NWC) had all kinds of trouble with the likes of Kristen Beck (9 kills; 8 blocks, 1 stuff) and Abbey Edwards (9 kills) at the net. A 7-0 span with Jessica Farr (5 kills; 6 blocks) putting down three kills put the Panthers in the drivers with a 12-5 lead in the opening set. Another 7-0 spurt with hitting errors creeping into the Bearcat attack put the guests (15-7, 6-3 NWC) in total command at 19-6. From then on, it was a matter of time as a spike off the Spencerville block by Farr gave the visitors a set lead. Set 2 followed much of the same pattern as its predecessor: too much power at the net for the Lady Panthers and mistakes by the Bearcats. Several smaller runs by the Panthers: 5-0, 4-0, 3-0 and later 7-0; which the Bearcats could never match with any of their own were key. Spencervilles biggest run was 3-0 (twice) before a stuff by Edwards on set point gave the guests a commanding 2-0 match lead. Paulding setter Mesa Praht (24 assists) continued to use her teams strength at the net in set 3. A 5-0 span put the Panthers up 16-6 but the Bearcats did not go away quietly. They battled to the last whistle getting as close as 19-13 on an ace by Alyssa Smith but in the end, Paulding had too much. An ace by Courney St. Johns on match point end it. We were without (junior) Shelby (Mulholland), one of our best middle hitters. Her family went on vacation this week, so we had to scramble, Spencerville coach Kari Wisher explained. We had girls in different positions and that resulted in some miscommunication. Plus, we had just too many mistakes in our hitting (27) and serving (8 versus 2 aces). Spencerville junior Abby Freewalt added 10 digs. We had to alter our attack; we went from a 6-2 set to a modified 5-1. The girls struggled to run the former, Paulding coach Todd Harmon noted. The girls seem to have adjusted well to it; we werent in the 6-2. Both teams begin tournament play next: Spencerville versus Fort Recovery Wednesday at Coldwater (Division IV) and Paulding versus Fairview Tuesday at LIncolnview (Division III). ----Mustangs lasso Lady Lancers HARROD Host Allen East handed invading Lincolnview a 4-set Northwest Conference volleyball loss 17-25, 25-21, 25-19, 25-16 Tuesday night at The Corral. The Lancers are in the Van Wert tri-match Saturday (10 a.m.) to end the regular season. ----Elida, Defiance notch girls soccer tie DEFIANCE Elida and Defiance battled to a 2-2 Western Buckeye League girls soccer draw Tuesday night in Defiance.

Elida hosts Fort Jennings at noon Saturday. -----Celina downs Elida volleyballers in 4 ELIDA Celina played the rude guest Tuesday night as they handed host Elida a 20-25, 25-16, 25-21, 25-19 Western Buckeye League loss. Katrina Meeks paced Elida (8-12, 3-5 WBL) with 14 kills and four aces, along with Kelsey Smith (37 assists) and Alex Hambleton (32 digs). Elida visits Defiance Thursday (5:30 p.m. junior varsity) to finish the regular season. ----Kalida boys shut out Pirates BLUFFTON The Kalida boys soccer team visited Steinmetz Field in Bluffton Tuesday night and came back to Putnam County with a 2-0 victory over host Bluffton. After a scoreless first half, Kalidas Ian Richey scored the matchs first goal halfway through the second half. Tyler Kortokrax scored at 7:30 on a penalty kick/. Kalida (13-1-0) dominated the shooting 11-1, with Drew Stechschulte stopping Blufftons only shot on-goal and Bluffton (17-7-1) keeper Kory Enneking nabbing nine saves. Kalida also won the junior varsity match 4-0. Kalida entertains Ottawa-Glandorf under the lights (7 p.m.) Saturday. ----Rockets down LadyCats in volleyball KALIDA Pandora-Gilboa defeated Kalida 25-8, 26-24, 25-20 in Putnam County League volleyball action Tuesday night in Kalida.

Titan senior Brooke Zynda had a big night for O-G (10-3-2) with three goals and an assist. Zynda opened the scoring with 32:33 left to play in the opening half as she converted a pass from Breann Racer. Nearly two minutes later, Zynda had a hand in the Titans going up 2-0 as she garnered an assist on Ali Nashs goal with 31:43 left in the half. Zynda ended the first-half scoring as she scored with four seconds left in the first half to make it 5-0. Breann Schroeder and Danielle Schroeder both scored first half goals as Megan Siefker assisted on Danielle Schroeders goal. Zynda and Nash scored second half goals for the Titans, while Jessie Kreinbrink, Taylor Mansfield and Whitney Warnecke both had goals.

LadyCats, Pirates tie for PCL soccer title

By DAVE BONINSEGNA The Delphos Herald KALIDA It was a busy night on the campus of Kalida High School on Tuesday: the volleyball team was involved with Senior Night in their battle against Pandora-Gilboa, while the unbeaten soccer LadyCats were honoring their seniors before their tussle with the Continental Lady Pirates for the Putnam County League title. The Pirates had a plan going into the match and stuck with it to neutralize the Kalida offense and for the most part they did. The teams took the pitch tied in the league and left the same way as after 80 minutes of soccer, the score was tied at 1-1. McKenna Scott scored the lone goal for the Pirates off of a rebound of a penalty kick with 23:34 to go in the first half. Jackie Gardner got the equalizer for Kalida (11-0-3, 3-0-1) with 6:35 to go in the match. Defensively, Leva Weller had a stellar performance in goal for the guests (10-3-2, 3-0-1 PCL) thwarting away 19 attempts. Erika Brinkman stopped six of the Pirates seven shots on-goal. The evening wasnt without its thrilling moments as it is not often that a team gets a penalty kick but to get two is not all that common; that is what happened to the hosts. Not once but twice the Wildcats were called for a handball in the penalty area, the first resulting in the aforementioned goal. The second was a bit more costly. As the teams were smashed into the goal area, one of the Continental players sent a shot towards the net and all one could see in the mass of players was a lone hand go up and knock the ball away; however, it wasnt the hand of Brinkman but that of Wildcat defender Kaylyn Verhoff. The play kept the ball from going into the net but in all of the fray, Verhoff was issued a red card and the Wildcats were forced to play one down for the rest of the contest. On the PK, Brinkman guessed correctly and blocked the shot and the LadyCats were able to clear the ball out, keeping the score at 1-0. Continental controlled the ball for the better part of the first half, despite a slow start,

They finally broke through for the second time at 26:58 when Koch fired a cross pass from the right wing; Kreeger tried to stop it but the ball eluded her effort and waiting for it was Landwehr for a point-blank shot and a 2-0 edge. The Big Green scored at 24:24 against Hamilton as Landwehr got possession on a throw-in on the left post and fired an 18-yarder to the right side for a 3-0 spread. That became 4-0 at 16:10 when senior Caitlyn Landin threw the ball in to Von Sossan on the doorstep of the right post; she got the orb past Musser. The Jays, who had a 19-yarder by Wrasman stopped by Kramer at 34;11, had a chance to the board at 12:52 when C. Grothouse fired from the left wing but it was stopped. The visitors made it 5-0 at 7:17 when Beining got possession in the middle and fired it low past Musser. The Jays got on the scoreboard at 5:41 against backup Ottoville keeper Danielle Trenkamp (sophomore) as Wrasman crossed the ball from the right wing to Jackson, whose shot went low and hard to the left side for a 5-1 scoreboard. Both teams are in action for the final regular-season tilts Thursday: St. Johns at Lima Central Catholic (5 p.m.) and Ottoville hosting Fort Jennings (7 p.m.).

winning the 50/50 balls and keeping their hosts in their offensive end. However in the second half, the Wildcats picked up the pace but the stingy Pirate defense refused to bend. Kalida had opportunities at the 31:37 mark and another with 21:38 to go when Gardner sent a delivery high and over the Continental net. Brinkman climbed the ladder for a great save with just under 29 minutes left in the second half. Gardner and Weller went back and forth in the latter stages of the match as the Kalida freshman took shot after shot at the Pirate junior but the elder of the two continued to keep the hosts off the scoreboard. However, with 6:35 to go, Gardner finally found a chink in the armor as she took as shot from eight yards out and slipped it to Wellers left side and into the back of the net to knot the match at 1-1. Kalida picked up the intensity from there but was unable to grab the go-ahead goal, thus the match ending with the teams sharing the PCL crown. Kalida hosts Crestview 7 p.m. Thursday.

Columbus Grove sweeps Lady Jeffcats

By MALLORY KEMPER The Delphos Herald mkemper2011@ COLUMBUS GROVE The Jefferson Wildcats were looking to stay with the Columbus Grove Lady Bulldogs Tuesday night in Northwest Conference volleyball action but fell in three sets. The Lady Bulldogs grabbed a 25-7, 25-10, 25-14 sweep of the Wildcats at Columbus Groves Senior Night and last volleyball match in their gym. Jefferson fell to 1-17 (0-9 NWC), while Columbus Grove stands at 9-12 on the season. The Lady Bulldogs got off quickly in set 1 and never looked back, scoring 10 straight points with the help of Anna Ricker with three kills and five aces in set one, along with Julia Wynn with four kills. Columbus Grove took a 20-6 lead with an ace by Ricker and an overpass by Jefferson set Riley Eversole for a putdown to give the Lady Bulldogs the set victory. Set 2 started off just like the first in the Lady Bulldogs favor. An Eversole kill assisted by senior setter Nicole Langhals gave her team a 10-4 lead. A set up from Langhals to Ricker gave Columbus Grove a commanding 20-7 lead and a big block by Wynn gave the Bulldogs a 2-0 match lead. Set 3 started off with Rachel Schumacher serving four straight aces at the Wildcats serve-receive and a Ricker kill gave the Bulldogs a 7-1 lead but Jefferson didnt give up. A dig by Rileigh Stockwell and kill by Goergens brought the Lady Wildcats within three, 15-12. A couple of aces by Langhals brought her team back ahead 20-14 and Columbus Grove closed out the set and victory. As for the Wildcats, coach Joy Early believes her team needs to stay positive and not give up when they get down. They are a very young team and have a hard time keeping their head into the game, Early added. They tend to get down on themselves a lot and its hard to get them out of that. Goergens had five kills for Jefferson, while Stockwell had 11 digs. Ricker led the Bulldogs with 13 kills, six aces, six digs and five blocks.

Eversole had 10 kills and Julia Wynn contributed eight kills. Langhals dished out 24 assists. Schumacher had five aces and 10 digs. Tonight was a good night for the seniors to get the win on their last home game and the last volleyball game played here in this gym, Columbus Grove coach Kelly Lepley said. It was good to end their career here on a win and watch them have fun. The junior varsity match was won by Columbus Grove 25-19, 25-5 to win the NWC title. The Wildcats play their last regular-season match on Thursday (6 p.m. JV) for Senior Night versus Kalida and the Lady Bulldogs travel to Ottawa-Glandorf Saturday (10 a.m. JV) before tournament begins.

Local roundup (Continued from page 6)

Marys Roughriders Tuesday in a Western Buckeye league contest at Van Wert High School. Van Wert took the first set but dropped the next three to lose the match in four sets, 23-25, 25-22, 25-20, 25-15. St. Marys took the early lead in the first set when a Jenny Brown kill made the score 5-1, Roughriders. The St. Marys lead grew to five when a Van Wert error gave them a 9-4 lead. The Lady Cougars fought back, scoring four consecutive points before a Maggie Allmandinger block tied the score at nine, and forced a St. Marys time-out. Van Wert continued the run out of the break when a Claire Gamble ace and an Alexis Dowdy block, along with two Roughrider errors, gave the Lady Cougars a 14-9 advantage. The Van Wert lead grew to 20-13 later in the match when Danielle Hitchcock slammed home a kill. Brown and Allmandinger then traded kills to make the score 21-14, and a Lady Cougar ace made the score 22-14. St. Marys clawed their way back in the game, however, and a Van Wert error brought them within two, 22-20, and forced a Lady Cougar time-out. Brown and Lexi Roop recorded kills out of the break to tie the game at 22. A Lady Cougar error then gave the lead back to St. Marys, 23-22, and Van Wert called another time-out. This time the break worked in Van Werts favor, as St. Marys recorded three straight errors to give the Lady Cougars a 25-23 first-set win to take a 1-0 match lead. The Roughriders jumped out early in the second set, seizing a 9-7 lead on a Hannah Wumer block. The St. Marys advantage grew to six, 13-7, on a Roop block, which prompted a Van Wert time-out call. The Lady Cougars scored five consecutive points out of the time-out, including three straight aces by Allmandinger, to pull within one and force a Roughrider time-out. Van Wert later tied the game at 14 on an Alexis Dowdy kill. St. Marys then regained the lead and ran the score to 19-14 on a Amanda Walter ace. The Cougars clawed back late as an Ashlee Dowdy kill gave the Lady Cougars a 21-10 lead. Brown then answered with a kill to tie the game, before an Allmandinger kill returned the lead to Van Wert. The straight Lady Cougar errors then gave the secondset win to St. Marys, 25-22, and tied the match at one. The third set was hard-fought to begin, with St. Marys holding small leads until an Alexa Dunlap tied the set at 11. The teams would then fight to ties at 13 and 19 before a Brown kill gave the Roughriders a 20-19 lead late. St. Marys took the set from there, out-scoring the Lady Cougars 5-1 the rest of the set to claim the set, 25-20. A Kiley Schamp kill early in the fourth set gave St. Marys a 6-4 lead. The lead would later expand to 10-5 on a Roop kill, and 15-8 on a Haley Hicks ace, prompting the Lady Cougars to use a time-out. The St. Marys lead grew to 18-8 before a Dunlap tip gave a point to the Lady Cougars. A Schamp kill later gave St. Marys a 21-10 lead, which became 24-13 on a Roop kill, to give the Roughriders set and match-point. Taylor Doidge then kept Van Wert alive with a kill, but a Hicks point gave the set (25-15) and match (3-1) win to St. Marys. I told the girls tonight, they know they can win, they saw it. They can play together as a team. They just need to pick each other up. If one player gets down, theyve got five other players out there. They need to pick each other up and work as a team, not just get down and not work as a team. They definitely have the potential, Van Wert coach Vicki Smith said. Smith said the team is looking for the girls with the best chemistry on the court together heading into tournament. Right now, we are going to play with the girls who are going to play together. Were working towards tournament...Were going to work as a team. Whoever is working the best and playing together will be playing, she said. She added that she was happy with the play of some of the younger players on the team Tuesday. Alexis Dowdy did a very nice job tonight. Being a freshman, stepping up, she played well tonight. Also, Claire Gamble had an awesome game passing tonight. Those two younger players stepped in and did a nice job tonight, she said. The loss drops the Cougars to 6-14 on the season, 2-6 in WBL play. They return to action Thursday as they travel to OttawaGlandorf to take on the Lady Titans. ----Knights drop Lady Bulldogs in 3 ADA The Crestview volleyball unit capped an undisputed and perfect Northwest Conference run (9-0) Tuesday night, emerging from The Kennel with a 25-23, 25-20, 25-21 victory. Danica Hicks led the way for the Lady Knights (18-3) with 12 kills, 18 assists and three aces, while Taylor Springer added 18 assists, Taylor Hamrick 10 digs and Holly Genth 10 digs. Crestview hosts Hicksville 10 a.m. (JV start) Saturday on Senior Night. -----Overtime goal drops Defiance MANCHESTER, Ind. The Defiance College womens soccer team lost in heart-breaking fashion on Tuesday night to Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference opponent Manchester College. The Spartans scored the matchs only goal in the first minute of overtime for the victory. After coming off a tough 2-1 defeat on Saturday at the hands of Franklin College, the Yellow Jackets looked to bounce back on Tuesday afternoon. During the first half, both teams had opportunities but neither team was able to convert the chances into goals. Defiance recorded five first-half shots to Manchesters six shots. The second half was much of the same as both teams were held scoreless through regulation. After the first two halves Defiance led in total shots by a total of 13-12. Of those 13 shots, the Jackets placed 10 of their shots on target as opposed to just four from the Spartans. Despite the advantage in quality opportunities, Defiance was unable to record a win or a tie in the match due to Kayla Werbianskyjs goal within the first 20 seconds of overtime. Assisting on the matchwinner was Sofia Tzortzinis. The goal gave the Spartans a 1-0 victory. The loss drops the Yellow Jackets HCAC record to 1-3 and their overall record to 3-11.

Jeffcats, Hornets battle to 1-1 draw Monday LadyCats outlast Bulldogs

By JIM METCALFE MT. CORY Jefferson and Cory-Rawson are a week away from starting their girls soccer post-seasons. The two squads battled to a 1-1 draw in action on a sunny and warm Monday afternoon in Mt. Cory. Both coaches had positives and negatives to look at. The second half was the most intensity I have seen out of these girls in the last three games. They were getting to the ball first, they were being aggressive, everything, Jefferson coach Lindsey Drerup noted. We were getting the first touches and played a lot better. The first half, we followed our pattern to play to our competition, to play to their level. It was one of those games I felt we let get away. We have been in a lot of our matches but just couldnt finish, Cory-Rawson coach Jay Frommer acknowledged. This is our fifth season and this is the best-conditioned team we have had. Its a matter of doing this for 80 minutes, of consistently doing the things we work on all the time and playing together as a team. The teams were equal on the scoreboard and in the shots on-goal: the Lady Wildcats (4-8-2) had seven shots, as did the Lady Hornets (1-12-1). After a scoreless first 40 minutes, Cory-Rawson had a couple of good early looks: at 38:30, when Rachel Welch was just wide left from the right post; and at 34:10, when Morgan Woodward finished off a dangerous sequence in front of the Delphos net by just missing over the crossbar. The Hornets broke through at the 32:47 mark. Welch got a free look on a 14-yarder from the left post that found the right side of the net past senior Wildcat keeper Cassidy Bevington (4 saves). That seemed to ignite the Red and White. They got their first chance of the second half at 32:10 when freshman Kylee Haehn got a good chance on the doorstep of the right post but Hornet netminder Abby Schultz (6 saves) got the stop. At 27:24, junior Corinne Metzger almost made a midfield steal and long run pay off but her 16-yarder from the right wing was wide left. The Red and White got the equalizer at 26:49 when senior Carla Horstman, on the left side near the end line, kicked inside to Haehn, who controlled the bouncing pass enough to put a 14-yarder from the wing to the right side past Schultz. Neither team got many chances from then on as both units stepped up the intensity a notch, with Bevington and Schultz both getting one stop. The Lady Wildcats had the first good chance of the match at 37:14 when senior Elizabeth Schosker almost put home a ricochet from in front of the net but it was just wide right. That would be their last real scoring chance of the first half. Meantime, the Lady Hornets almost went up 1-0 at 35:15 when Miki Kussmaul nearly got the orb past Bevington on a deflection but the keeper kicked the ball out of harms way. At 31:25, the hosts again almost went up a goal on a dangerous scoring chance as Bevington deflected a ball but the orb was finally kicked out of harms way by a defender. At 17:40, junior Sydney Drerup prevented a goal when Bevington was out of position on a try from Bryce Hotelling by kicking it away. Were starting to get support throughout all three layers of the field. Our defense has been solid all season, Coach Drerup added. Our midfield is beginning to give more support to help the defense but also to help the forwards out in moving the ball. For us, its a matter of finishing on a consistent basis when were attacking and shooting. Cory-Rawson visits Van Buren today, while Jefferson hosts Allen East both are tied for third in the NWC race Thursday (5 p.m.).

Van Wert rolls past Spencerville

By Mallory Kemper The Delphos Herald SPENCERVILLE - The Van Wert boys soccer team traveled to Spencerville Monday night to take on their co-ed team and came away with an 11-2 victory at Moeller Memorial Stadium. The Cougars (6-7-2) outshot the Bearcats (1-12) 14-4. The kids kept playing their hearts out and never gave up, Spencerville coach Dean Brown said. They have some fun even when we get down but they are still giving it their all the full 80 minutes. The first half was a backand-forth battle but the visiting team cracked the scoreboard first at the 29:07 mark when junior Jon Lisa passed up to classmate Nathan Wilhelm, who dribbled through the Spencerville defenders and took a shot six yards out on the right side for a 1-0 Van Wert edge. The ball was controlled mainly at the midfield the first half until the Cougars took control of the ball at the 26:44 mark when senior Aaron McCellan gave a nice pass to Trevor Pearson, who took a shot when Spencerville goalkeeper Zach Gay was out of the box. The Bearcats finally got their chance at the 12:45 mark when Travis Patterson was wide open

but he shot right at senior netminder Joe Moonshower. At 8:19, Van Wert used its passing abilities again when Joey Hurless passed up to Nike Goessl, who took a shot on the left side as Gay dove but barely missed for a Cougars goal. With 3:54 left in the opening half, the Bearcats started to see some spark and with the help of Byron Gay on the right side making a cross pass to Patterson, the goal was left wide open as he chipped it in for a Spencerville goal and a 3-1 deficit. The second half was dominated by Van Wert as they scored eight goals. The first came 10 minutes into the half off a corner kick from Hurless. Not even a minute later, Wilhelm dribbled all the way down the field to Nathan Knodel, who shot five yards out on the left just past Gay, who didnt see him coming. At the 29:05 mark, the Bearcats fouled inside the goal box and Van Wert had a penalty kick. McCellan used it to his advantage as Gay dove but the Cougars went up 6-1. Hurless made a crossover move to Lisa, who shot and scored over a leaping Gay. Less than three minutes later, Hurless split two defenders and shot from three yards out and scored for Van Wert. One minute later, a corner kick by Kyle Money let Thad Davis score halfway inside the box from about nine yards just over the Spencerville defenders at the 18:22 mark. Pearson dribbled his way through the Spencerville defenders and took a shot from about eight yards outside the goal and just made it past Byron Gay, who came in for Zach Gay at the 20-minute mark. The Bearcats finally took control of the ball at the 14:10 mark when Austin Swartz was left wide open just outside the goal box and shot a 20-yard laser as the ball went over Moonshowers head for a Spencerville goal and a 10-2 hole. With four minutes left, freshman Josh Overholt got his chance at the goal when he used his quickness to get past the Spencerville defenders and scored to end the match. It was a good game and we had a lot of our non-starters play so it was kind of nice for them to come out and produce some goals for us, Van Wert coach George Scott said. I think the win tonight helped us build confidence for the tournament in the future. Spencerville visits Lincolnview Thursday; Van Wert travels to Ottawa-Glandorf.

KALIDA The Kalida volleyballers had to go the distance but downed invading Columbus Grove 26-24, 23-25, 23-25, 25-18, 15-13 in a Putnam County League marathon Monday night at The Wildcat Den. Kayla Siefker (16 kills; 2 aces) and Haley McIntyre (14 kills) had double-digit totals for the LadyCats (13-7, 3-2 PCL) and Haley Zenz had 27 assists. Guiding the Lady Bulldogs (8-12, 2-4 PCL) were Anna Ricker (28 kills), Julia Wynn (6 blocks) returning from a month off due to an injury and Nicole Langhals (59 assists). Whenever two teams that know each other so well get together as these two PCL rivals do and have had a lot of success in the last decade or so, you can almost figure it will go a long way. This matchup was no different. They wanted to win this match as much as anyone. I credit Grove for doing what they needed to do, Kalida coach Jeremy Stober noted. Wynn and Ricker were solid hitters for them. I just think we had a few more hitters at the net that eventually was the difference. After four very close and competitive sets, it came down to the ultimate set. Even that was close. It took a big 4-0 span that propelled Kalida to a 13-9 edge on a hitting error by the Bulldogs to give the LadyCats some breathing room. The Bulldogs could never quite overcome that deficit, though they did get within 14-13 on a hit off the block by the 6-1 Wynn. However, when Zenz (4 kills) hit an off-speed cut shot from left to right that the defense couldnt dig up, Kalida had the match.

Each team took turns seemingly in control of the match, from the first set on. After the LadyCats edged out a set 1 victory, the teams battled on even terms into the second set as well. With no lead more than three and several ties, it came down to the Bulldogs using the tips to great effect over the Kalida front wall and in front of the back row. A net violation of set point tied the match at 1-1. The third set was close until Grove put together a 7-0 spurt with Wynn contributing three kills and a stuff to take a 10-5 edge. Try as they might, the Maroon and White could never quite get over that hump. A push shot off the back row by Sammi Stechschulte on set point put the visitors up 2-1. Just as quickly. Kalida retaliated. This time, they used an early 4-0 span on three hitting miscues by the guests and a stuff by McIntyre (4 blocks) to take a 5-1 edge. They eventually led by as much as 15-7 on a hit off the defense by Andrea Bellman (3 kills). The Bulldogs could not regain the momentum and a hitting error on set point forced a set five. Our passing was there for the second and third sets, just not for the other three. When we didnt get the good passes, we struggled getting quality hits, Grove coach Kelly Lepley noted. Getting Julia back is big for us. She played a little bit Saturday but not much. This was her first extended action in over a month. Other contributors for the LadyCats were Brandi Merschman (9 kills and 3 aces), Alexis Decker (2 kills and 14 assists), Elizabeth Turnwald (3 kills) and Amy Smith (3 aces). Grove received 28 digs from Rachel Schumacher and two aces from Emily Tabler. Grove won the junior varsity match 26-24, 25-22.

Minster sweeps Spencerville in volleyball

By MALLORY KEMPER The Delphos Herald SPENCERVILLE The Wildcats from Minster swept the Bearcats in non-league action Monday night 25-14, 25-22, 25-19. The Lady Bearcats fell to 4-17 while Minster improved to 11-9 on the season. The first set was all Minster as they quickly jumped to leads of 9-2 and 18-10, thanks largely to senior Sami Brown who had four first-set kills assisted by freshman setter Regan Hahn. An overpass from the Lady Bearcats serve-receive set junior Claire McGowan up for an easy kill across the net to make it a 19-10 set. An ace by Kaitlyn Lehmkuhl gave Minster the first set victory. The second set was back-andforth with each team having five hitting errors and Spencerville missing five serves. The Bearcats took an 8-5 lead with a kill by senior Taylor Elchert assisted by Schylar Miller. Elchert gave her team a 9-5 lead with a big block up at the net but the Wildcats were not going away. Three back-to-back aces by Jayden Hahn from Minster gave her team an edge, 13-11, before junior Shelby Mulholland rallied off two aces to bring the Bearcats back on top, 17-16. A big kill by McGowan and a block by Kassi Brown gave Minster a 23-20 lead. An overpass by the Lady Bearcats set up Brown for a putdown as Minster went up 2-0. Missed communication by the Lady Bearcats gave Minster a 14-10 lead to start off the third set. Junior outside hitter Abby Freewalt wouldnt let her team give up as she had three kills and two blocks in set three for Spencerville. A Freewalt kill brought her team within five, 22-17, but an overpass from the Lady Bearcats and a kill by Brown gave Minster the set and match. Our biggest thing tonight was communication and we just kind of gave up, Spencerville coach Kari Wicker said. We were playing different positions tonight because we had to prepare for someone leaving for a week, so they were a little confused, but they started out playing good the second game and ended strong; we just cant ever finish. Stat leaders for the Lady Bearcats were Freewalt (8 kills), Elchert (6 kills; 2 blocks) and Mulholland (11 digs; 3 aces). Obviously a win is a win but I am not happy with the way we played tonight, Minster coach Cami Lefeld said. Usually, we are very aggressive and serving is one of our top-notch features but we missed a lot. Luckily, we were able to finish games two and three to come out with a win. Minster stat leaders were senior Kassi Brown (9 kills; 3 blocks; 2 aces), McGowan (8 kills), Hahn (23 assists) and senior libero Dana Stucke (18 digs).

Chrysler, UAW agree on new contract

By TOM KRISHER and DEE-ANN DURBIN The Associated Press

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

The Herald 9

DETROIT Chrysler Group LLC and the United Auto Workers negotiators agreed on a new four-year contract early today that creates 2,100 new jobs. Chrysler also will invest $4.5 billion in its plants under the deal, which covers 26,000 U.S. workers. This agreement is the latest in a remarkable turnaround for Chrysler, UAW Vice President General Holiefield said in a statement. This is the first contract agreement reached since Chryslers government bailout and bankruptcy two years ago, and the first since Chrysler has been managed by Italian automaker Fiat SpA. The agreement must still be ratified by Chryslers workers. The union gave few other details. Its expected to reveal more at a news

Fewer flights could cost jobs at American Airlines

By DAVID KOENIG The Associated Press DALLAS Fall and winter service reductions at American Airlines could cost some workers their jobs at the nations third-largest airline company. American announced late Monday that it will reduce passenger-carrying capacity in the October-throughDecember quarter by about 3 percent compared with late 2010. It cited the weak economy, high fuel costs, and more pilots retiring. Analysts said the move, along with similar recent announcements from United and Delta, showed that airlines were serious about controlling costs. Barclays Capital said Tuesday that it still expects Americans parent, AMR Corp., to lose money through next year but not as much, thanks to the reductions. AMR shares led a rally in result in employee reductions These capacity companywide, said spokesman Tim Smith. Smith said American was adjustments could studying whether it could limit have a significant the number of furloughs by impact on opera- offering voluntary severance.

It already has fewer pilots to fly its fleet of about 600 planes. In the past two months, 240 American pilots have retired about 10 times the normal rate. They are taking advantage of an unusual contract clause that lets them lock in the value of some pension benefits before the recent stock market slump. American parent AMR Corp. was the only major U.S. airline to lose money last year and is expected to keep posting losses through next year. High fuel prices have hurt American, which has a relatively old and inefficient fleet, and the company says that its labor costs are higher than those of competitors. While announcing the reduced schedule, AMR also said it would take $51 million in charges against earnings in the third quarter related to fuel-hedging contracts and changes in currency exchange rates.

conference scheduled for 11:30 a.m. EDT. The agreement is expected to be similar to deals reached earlier with General Motors Co. and Ford Motor Co., but probably less rich. GM and Ford both made billions of dollars last year, while Chrysler lost money. At both GM and Ford, most workers will get profit-sharing checks instead of annual raises. GM workers were given $5,000 signing bonuses while Ford workers have been promised $6,000 signing bonuses. GM workers ratified their agreement last month. Ford workers are still voting. Chrysler and the union have hit a number of stumbling blocks during negotiations. As the original deadline to reach a new contract approached in mid-September, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne sent an angry letter to UAW President Bob King, accusing him of failing to show up at a meeting to finalize the deal. The

two sides eventually agreed to extend the contract to Oct. 19. Late last week, three money issues separated the company and the union: The size of signing bonuses and profit-sharing checks and a cap on the number of entrylevel workers that Chrysler could have. The union wanted to cap the number of entry-level workers at 25 percent in 2015, while Chrysler wanted no limit, said two people briefed on the talks who asked not to be identified because the negotiations are private. Entry-level workers make $14 to $16 per hour, about half the wage of longtime UAW workers. The union wants the lower-paid workers to move up to the higher wage of around $29, while the company wants to control costs by paying more workers at the lower rate. About 12 percent of Chryslers 23,000 factory

workers now are paid the lower wage, and the carmaker plans to hire thousands more over the next four years as it retools factories to make new models. Ford agreed to a 20 percent cap, while GMs limit is 25 percent. The UAW also represents 3,000 salaried workers such as engineers. Marchionne has been tough on Fiats Italian unions, challenging the Italian way of negotiating new contracts and seeking plant-by-plant deals in a bid for more flexible work rules instead of the traditional national contracts. In the process, he has run up against fierce resistance from the FIOM metalworkers union. FIOM is planning a one-day strike at all Fiat plants on Oct. 21. Chrysler, which has been majority-owned by Italys Fiat since July, is still struggling to make a profit. The company earned $116 million in the first quarter, its

first quarterly net profit in five years. But it lost $370 million in the second quarter, mostly because of charges for refinancing debt. Chrysler expects to earn $200 million to $500 million this year, excluding the debt charges. If so, it will be Chryslers first profitable year on that basis since 2005. But the company is

earning only a fraction of what its Detroit rivals are. Ford reported a profit of $6.6 billion last year, while GM earned $4.7 billion. Fiat was given a 20 percent stake in Chrysler by the U.S. government in exchange for management expertise and technology. The Italian automaker has since raised its stake to more than 50 percent.

Report: Mercury levels mostly down in Great Lakes

By JOHN FLESHER The Associated Press DETROIT Mercury levels have dropped about 20 percent in the Great Lakes in recent decades but remain dangerously high and are getting worse in some places, scientists said in a report released Tuesday. Concentrations of mercury exceed the risk threshold for people and wildlife at many spots across the region and are particularly high in inland waterways, said the report issued by the Great Lakes Commission, an agency that represents the eight states and two Canadian provinces surrounding the lakes. The report said scientists had found mercury is toxic to fish and wildlife at surprisingly low levels. The report was issued the day after 25 states asked a federal court to block limits on mercury and other air pollution from power plants that the Environmental Protection Agency plans to set next month. Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, who led the effort, said the regulations would hurt the economy and cause electric rates to jump. The Republicancontrolled U.S. House last week voted to delay rules to cut emissions from cement plants, solid waste incinerators and industrial boilers. Authors of the Great Lakes report said lower emissions from incinerators were largely responsible for the mercury drop-off. Logic would suggest if we controlled them further, we would be even more successful, said Charles Driscoll, a Syracuse University environmental engineer. The report was based on what Tim Eder, the Great Lakes Commissions executive director, said was the most thorough evaluation of mercury pollution trends ever conducted in the region. It involved 170 researchers who produced 35 peer-reviewed papers after taking more than 300,000 measurements, including samples from birds, fish and sediment. The overall decline in mercury contamination is very welcome news, said study co-author James Wiener of the University of Wisconsin at La Crosse. But reasons for concern remain, he said. Six commonly eaten game fish had average mercury concentrations above the EPAs designated safe level in more than 60 percent of the area studied. An uptick in concentrations of some fish and wildlife such as loons in Wisconsin, eagles in Minnesota

and walleye in Ontario lakes is worrisome largely because scientists dont know why its happening, Wiener said.

Protesters march past millionaires NYC homes

By VERENA DOBNIK Associated Press NEW YORK They started their protest down in the Financial District, speaking out against Wall Street companies and denouncing corporate greed and the gap between the rich and the poor. Then the demonstrators from the Occupy Wall Street took it further uptown to the homes of some corporate executives. At first walking two-by-two on the sidewalk because they had no march permit and didnt want to be charged with blocking traffic, then their numbers swelling to a half dozen abreast, members of the Occupy Wall Street movement and other groups made their way up Manhattans East Side on Tuesday. They walked along streets like Fifth Avenue and Park Avenue where some of the richest 1 percent of the population live in townhouses and luxury apartments. They paused outside buildings where media mogul Rupert Murdoch, banker Jamie Dimon and oil tycoon David Koch have homes, and decried the impending expiration of New Yorks 2 percent millionaires tax in December. Today, Dimon was to be the focus of another protest, with demonstrators gathering at the New York City headquarters of JP Morgan Chase to again focus on the expiring tax. Dimon is the chairman and CEO. For the past 3 1/2 weeks, protesters have besieged a park in lower Manhattan near Wall Street. The uptown march marked the first time the Occupy Wall Street movement has identified specific people as being part of the 1 percent the demonstrators say are getting rich at the expense of the rest of America. I have nothing against these people personally. I just think they should pay their fair share of taxes, said Michael Pollack, an office worker in a law firm. He held up a sign with a saying attributed to department store founder Edward Filene, Why shouldnt the American people take half my money from me? I took all of it from them. Pollack said: Its time for a new New Deal. When the march reached Park Avenue and East 93rd Street, protesters stopped in front of a building where they said Dimon has an apartment. Marchers screamed, Wheres our bailout? and How do we end this deficit? End the war, tax the rich! JPMorgan was among the banks that received a federal bailout, money it has since repaid. Dimon got supportive words from Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is himself a billionaire executive but whose East Side townhouse was not on the protesters list of targets. Dimon has brought more business to this city than maybe any other banker in (the) modern day, the mayor said. To go and picket him, I dont know what that achieves. Jamie Dimons an honorable person working very hard. He pays his taxes. Marcher Bahran Admadi, a former taxi driver and art dealer who is now unemployed, said he has nothing personal against the rich. But some of them take peoples blood, he said. Everything goes up the ladder while we work harder and harder. Outside one building, protesters placed a giant replica of a check against the door. It was made out to The top one percent for $5 billion the size of the impending state tax cut for New Yorkers making $250,000 and more. The Occupy Wall Street protests in Manhattans Zuccotti Park have spread to other cities, including Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle and Los Angeles, and have become a political issue, with Republicans accusing the demonstrators of waging class war and President Barack Obama saying he understands their frustrations.

Vitamin E pills linked to prostate cancer risk


Chrysler 200


1,000 0





CHICAGO There is more evidence that taking vitamin E pills can be risky. A study that followed up on men who took high doses of the vitamin for about five years found they had a slightly increased risk of prostate cancer even after they quit taking the pills. Doctors say its another sign that people should be careful about using vitamins and other supplements. People tend to think of vitamins as innocuous substances, almost like chicken soup take a little and it cant hurt, said lead author Dr. Eric Klein of the Cleveland Clinic. The study shows that is not true. If you have normal levels, the vitamin is probably of no benefit, and if you take too much, you can be harmed, Klein said. Men randomly assigned to take a 400-unit capsule of vitamin E every day for about five years were 17 percent more likely to get prostate cancer than those given dummy pills. That dose, commonly found in over-the-counter supplements, is almost 20 times higher than the recommended adult amount, which is about 23 units daily. The results mean for every 1,000 men who took vitamin E, there were 11 additional cases of prostate cancer, compared with men taking dummy pills. The study was actually launched to try to confirm less rigorous research suggesting vitamin E might protect against prostate cancer. Overall, about 160 of every 1,000 U.S. men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime. Risks increase as men age. Detection can be tricky since symptoms such as frequent urination can also be caused by harmless conditions, and doctors disagree about the benefits of screening tests. Treatment is also complex since some slowgrowing prostate cancers are not deadly but some procedures, including surgery, can damage sexual function and cause incontinence. Just last week, a government-convened panel of experts recommended against routine PSA screening for prostate cancer. That draft advice is open for public comment. What should vitamin E users do, given the new study results? About 13 percent of American men take it, according to a supplement trade group. Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society, says they should stop taking large doses and talk to their doctors about risks and benefits from prostate cancer screening. Smaller doses, typically found in multivitamins, are probably fine, said Brawley, who was not involved in the research. Vitamin E is found in foods such as nuts, seeds and vegetable oils. The nutrient helps nerves, muscles, blood vessels and the immune system function. Vitamin E supplements have long been promoted for disease prevention, but scientific research has disproven many claims and suggested they might increase risks for some conditions, including heart failure. Brawley noted that the study echoes previous thinking on beta-carotene, which once was thought to protect against cancer but more recently has been linked with increased risks for lung cancer, especially in smokers. There should be a global warning that ... excessive use of vitamins has not been proven to be beneficial and may be the opposite, Brawley said. Experts generally agree that foods are the best sources for vitamins. The new research appears in todays Journal of the American Medical Association. The National Cancer Institute and National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine paid for the multimillion-dollar study. Joe Latina, a cabinet shop owner in Aurora, Ohio, was among study participants. He said researchers gave him pills they said might slow down prostate cancer. Now 71 and cancer-free, he says he doesnt know whether he was given vitamins or dummy pills. Latina said he was kind of surprised by the study results, but is not stressing out over the possibility that he still might get cancer.

Thinking nothing of it, he ignored her and continued on. Finally he went to the checkout line, but she got in front of him. Pardon me, she said. Im sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. Its just that you look just like my son, who just died recently. Im very sorry. replied the young man. Is there anything I can do for you? Yes, she said. As Im leaving, can you say Good bye, Mother? It would make me feel so much better. Sure, answered the young man.
