Labor Dept. to drop regs to youth involvement on family farmers


Pillowcase project fluffs from 30 to 300
By NANCY SPENCER DELPHOS — It started out nice and easy with 30 pillowcases to piece together with leftover fabrics from other projects. The next thing the Delphos Area Simply Quilters knew, that number had fluffed up to 300. “We decided to make pillowcases for the American Patchwork and Quilting $1 million Share Pillowcases and Help Others challenge. One of our members, Amy Reindel, works at St. Rita’s and happened to mention it to a doctor she works with and two weeks later, the doctor said his medical group would provide 300 pillows if we would make the covers,” group member Pam Vincent of Delphos said during a meeting and sewing session this week. “The doctor travels to West Virginia once a year in August and provides care to people who can’t afford it or aren’t able to access it.” The doctor volunteers his time and profession at the Mountain Marketplace Mission in Boliar, W.Va., through the Lima Interfaith Mission Project. He told Reindel he noticed most of his patients had beds but few had pillows. “I guess our project sparked his getting the pillows,” Vincent said. “Now he has to take 300 of them with him. I hope he planned for that.” The group gathered their scrap bags, purchased additional bargain-bin material and got to work. Each pillowcase is made with three pieces of material and needs trimmed, ironed

Delphos, Ohio and finished after it’s sewn. They’ve been working on them for three months and hope to be done by the end of May. While the thrust behind so much straight sewing for a group that usually employs more creative talents is one they’ve come to embrace, after 300 pillowcases, they’ll be ready to start something new. “We’ve had a lot fun working on this project but we don’t usually do so much of the same thing,” Vincent said. “It’s a great cause but I think we’re all ready to wrap this up and come up with a group project or start something of our own.” The women don’t limit who they share their handiwork with; they also made 15 ‘Kid’s Cuddle Quilts’ and donated them through a Jefferson FCCLA fundraising event for the Ronald McDonald House. “Kid’s just love to cuddle up with a quilt,” Vincent said. “It makes them feel secure and more at home. There’s nothing better.” The group meets at 7 p.m. the second Thursday and fourth Tuesday of each month at the Masonic Lodge on North Main Street in Delphos. In exchange for using the space, the quilters donate juvenile quilts to be raffled to benefit Juvenile Diabetes, something the Masons embrace. Members also include Jeana Fisher, Sara Grone, Deb Rode and Marge Gable of Delphos; Amanda Stechschulte of Bluffton; Janette Moreo and Donna Wannemacher of Lima; Donna Flagg of Convoy, the oldest member at 78; and Jody Brown of Van Wert.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Labor Department announced it would withdraw a proposed regulation that would have restricted youth involvement on family farms. The decision follows immense pressure from Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green), lawmakers, the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, Ohio Association of Agricultural Educators and Ohio farm families, who have argued against the proposed rule. “This is clear victory for the agricultural community and the next generation of farmers,” said Latta. “The Department of Labor made the right decision in halting a regulation that is an overreach and intrusion into family farms across America.” On March 21, Congressman Latta submitted hundreds of comments to Labor Secretary Solis from Ohioans, who opposed the Obama administration’s attack on rural communities. “I’d like to thank the hundreds of Ohio farmers who shared their personal stories on how the proposed regulation would negatively impact their families and farms. This is proof that we can’t remain on the sidelines when the President’s Labor Department attempts to intrude on citizens livelihoods and community values,” Latta added.

Still no quake study by Youngstown well operator
2 3 4 5 6-7 8-9 10 11 COLUMBUS (AP) — The operator of a northeast Ohio deep-injection well tied to earthquakes in the area has yet to receive the state clearance it says is necessary to conduct independent seismic research aimed at proving the well wasn’t the cause of the quakes. Documents obtained by The Associated Press show D&L Energy in Youngstown sought state permission in February to re-open the shuttered well — after plugging it to a shallower depth — and then to measure the vibrations for its analysis. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has yet to respond, in what could signal a permanent delay. D&L closed the Youngstown well after a New Year’s Eve quake reached 4.0 magnitude. The state then imposed a moratorium on deep-injection drilling near the site, halting regional disposal of millions of gallons of wastewater from hydraulic fracturing for natural gas or oil and other forms of drilling. ODNR spokesman Carlo LoParo said Friday the state can’t approve the request as long as the indefinite moratorium is in place. A March 9 state report tied the well to the quakes and imposed new state regulations on deep-injection activity. The state review pointed to previously unidentified fault lines under the well site, which

reached 8,000 to 9,000 feet below ground, as the likely source of the quakes. Smaller tremblers had been occurring over the well’s first year or so of operation, but it wasn’t until back-to-back quakes on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve that the issue grabbed widespread public attention. D&L had said it would hire its own independent consultants to study the earthquakes, See QUAKE, page 2

SPRINGBORO (AP) — Two armed bank robbery suspects surrendered peacefully Friday after nearly five hours in a standoff with police in southwest Ohio, authorities said. The two men, who had barricaded themselves in a Fifth Third Bank branch in the Dayton suburb of Springboro after attempting to rob the bank Friday morning, walked out of the bank about 1:30 p.m. and were taken into custody, police said. No hostages were taken, and no injuries were reported, according to police. No information was immediately available Friday on any charges in the case or on the identities of the suspects. The suspects entered the bank about 8:30 a.m. after trying to overpower a manager who was letting himself into the bank for work, John DiPietro, deputy chief of police for Miami Township in Montgomery County, told The Cincinnati Enquirer. DiPietro served as public information officer for Springboro police during the standoff. The manager was able to escape, but the suspects barricaded themselves in the building, DiPietro said. Nearby businesses, including a preschool, were locked down during the standoff and a shopping center next to the bank closed, the Dayton Daily News reported. Springboro is about 20 miles south of Dayton. The FBI and officers from other area law enforcement agencies were at the scene along with a SWAT team as authorities negotiated with the suspects.

Let’s discuss politics....
I was never one to want time to fly but I will be ever so grateful to see November and all of the elections in all their glory behind us. Nearly all of us by then will have been phoned, texted, emailed and of course have watched zillions of television political advertisements. It is inescapable. Back in March during the primary, we had seven phone calls on our answering machine by noon. Bob and I would have little contests on whether it was Mr. Santorum or Mr. Romney on the other end of the line each time the phone would ring. It felt good to know we were so important but a little attention of that type goes a long way. We always tried to listen to each call and form a valid opinion but the world of political advertising is a strange beast. There seems to be no “rules” when it comes to what they say about each other. Most of these politicians don’t seem to be accountable for the accuracy of their claims. They criticize their competitors, then they complain about the fairness of the comments made about themselves. Makes your head just swirl. And I don’t like to be distracted by goofy statements about etch-a-sketches or other children’s silly. Sometimes it seems like they spend way too much time explaining what they DIDN’T mean to say when they said what they meant to say (?????). (I’m confused, too!) My biggest complaint, I think, about all this political stuff is the amount of money these guys are paying for all this that we — the average voter — might just find plain annoying. I realize we have a tendency to vote for a familiar face. (A very nice lady I know says she voted for a certain politician because he was on the same plane as her and he looked like he would be a good guy). But there comes a point when it all goes beyond the reasonable point of

He was a Legacy Contributor to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center. Besides his singing and appreciation for vocal harmony, he was passionate throughout life about his study of vehicles, particularly the Classic Cars; plus traveling to state and national parks, bicycling, and enjoying his pond and the local reservoir with his family and dogs.

On the Other hand
informing us and I just want to turn it all off. I think I have a great idea, though, and hoping for support from the other voters. I offer this suggestion to our candidates. Forget about the 300 phone calls to my answering machine. Forget about those TV ads whose message is usually followed by an opposing candidate’s message. Forget about filling our mailboxes with flyers. If you have all this money you need to spend on your campaign, the very same effect can be obtained if you just send me a letter with a $5 voucher (to be donated to my favorite charity), along with your picture and write me a letter telling me what you have accomplished and what you plan to do. Don’t tell me what your opponents said to his third wife or what his neighbors say about him and how he mows his lawn or how his half-cousin on his mothers side once jaywalked. I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT YOU. Let me do my own research outside of the influence of hired hands. Let me form an opinion I call my own and through discussions with informed people and a FEW informative interviews (written or televised). Give me your phone number or email and I will ask you some questions (and maybe I might just call right when you are sitting down to dinner.) But as we all know this is but a dream...a flight of the end we all know the best “politician” will win. And then it will all start again.....

with the hope of disproving any link and getting the year-old well re-opened. Company spokesman Vince Bevacqua said D&L is still waiting for the agency’s guidance on its Feb. 28 letter. In it, the company proposed procedures its consultants, Schlumberger Reservoir Group and Microseismic Inc., would undertake to plug North Star No. 1 in Youngstown to a shallower depth, re-start operations, and monitor for seismic activity going forward. The letter also addressed procedures at three other wells the company operates within a 7-mile radius. Bevacqua said in an email that the company’s independent studies “would proceed contingent on ODNR’s approval.” He declined to interpret the delay as a bad sign for the well’s future. “D&L makes no assumption about ODNR’s intentions and continues to work cooperatively with the agency pending the resolution of these matters,” he said in an email. LoParo said that shouldn’t stop D&L from seeking answers about the earthquakes. “They can conduct a comprehensive review of their well regarding the activity that occurred in the past year, and all possible induced seismic activity, without state approval,” he said. “It is their well, it is their property. If they want to analyze the geography surrounding the well, if they want to analyze the well itself, collect core samples, study previous injection, they’re certainly free to go with that.”

Toledo mayor to propose domestic partner benefits


TOLEDO (AP) — The mayor of Toledo wants to extend health care and other benefits to the gay and unmarried partners of city employees. The Blade reports that Toledo Mayor Mike Bell plans to introduce legislation Tuesday to extend benefits to the domestic partners of city employees, provided they have certified their status with Toledo’s Domestic Partner Registry. Cleveland and Columbus already offer domestic partner benefits, along with Lucas County and the University of Toledo. The newspaper reports that Bell’s announcement on Thursday was met with some skepticism from Toledo city councilmen. One expressed both financial and moral concerns about the proposal. Bell says he doesn’t expect the cost of providing the additional benefits to be high. He estimates about 2 percent of the city’s workforce would sign up for the benefits.

It was the decade of the seventies and life was good. I had a beautiful wife and three small children that loved me, a good job, my health, and a nice ranch style home in Pettyville, almost heaven, West Virginia. It seemed like the planting of a cherry tree in our back yard would be another positive step in our blissful journey through life. Why a cherry tree? Perhaps it was because of the story about George Washington admitting he was the one who chopped down the cherry tree. Our cherry tree would be a reminder of the importance of “taking the high road” and living a life full of value and integrity. We would watch our little children and our little cherry tree grow to stand for all that’s right with the world. Perhaps it was because the blossoms would be pretty and someday we might have cherries to eat. I’m not sure why I planted that cherry tree, but I do remember how the satisfaction of planting the tree and whatever future it would have with our family coming to an abrupt end. I was standing in our kitchen looking through the window in the direction of our newly planted cherry tree when I noticed our neighbor’s two coon dogs in our back yard. They were playing “tug of war” with what appeared to be some kind of a branch. The mangled object they were fighting

over was firmly lodged in each of their mouths and it was funny watching them pull each other back and forth across the lawn. I was admiring their determination to see who would be the winner in their contest until it dawned on me – the mangled branch in their mouths was what was left of my newly planted cherry tree! At that point, I lost all sense of sanity. Those dogs were going to pay for destroying my cherry tree. I opened the sliding glass door, stepped onto the deck, grabbed a broom that was leaning against the house, ran down the steps of the deck and started chasing the two coon dogs. As I charged at them waving the broom and screaming as loud as I could, they dropped the remnants of the ruined cherry tree and took off running. Instead of going back to their home, they began to run around our house with me in hot pursuit. On our second lap, I began to realize that I must have looked and sounded like a crazy man chasing those dogs but I couldn’t help it. In some insane kind of way it was making me feel better. I’m not sure if it happened on the third or fourth lap the dogs and I were making around the house, but I was suddenly brought back to my senses by the sound of an object whizzing by my head and striking our metal storage building. I stopped running, turned to see what

object had hit the building, and saw that it was one of my favorite smoking pipes. As I turned back to look in the direction of our house, I saw my wife standing on the deck shaking her head and looking at me with a look that said, “I hope none of our neighbors have seen you acting and sounding like an idiot! If so, I may never come out of the house again.” I learned several things that day – a freshly planted cherry tree can be used by coon dogs as a chew toy and as an object in a tug of war contest; even a mild mannered man like me can lose his temper and go temporarily insane; and if the Olympics ever has a pipe throwing competition my wife has a good chance of bringing back a medal. I’m grateful we can think back and laugh about the cherry tree incident. We never got to watch that cherry tree grow but we’ve been so blessed to watch our children grow and have children of their own. It continues to be a wonderful journey full of opportunities, challenges, and learning to trust in God and one another. Life is full of good days and not so good days. I encourage you to remember what Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

“We have two lives... the one we learn with and the life we live with after that.” — Bernard Malamud, American author (1914-1986)

Doug and Alice Hoehn raised their family in the state parks of Pennsylvania. What a wonderful environment. Doug’s last assignment as Park Manager was at the Ohio Pyle State Park. He served in the park service for 32 years. As retirement was drawing near they built a log home on a hill at Ohio Pyle. The town of Ohio Pyle is inside the park and shares the same name. Ohio Pyle is from the language of our Native Americans, meaning White Frothy Water. The Youghigeny River runs through the park. The river falls are also located in the park. This river is a favorite spot for white water rafting. Doug and Alice were both 1963 graduates of Fort Jennings High School. Doug’s parents were Vic and Leona Hoehn and Alice’s parents were Joe and Martha Hellman. Alice passed away 29 August 2010. They had three children: Mark, Brian and Vicky and three grandchildren. When Doug retired from the park service, he took up the hobby (or second career) of wood carving with a chain saw. He has done over 200 carvings, which can be found in several states. Many of you have seen the large ear of corn in the front yard of Rick and Cheryl Hellman’s home on Route 190, just north of Delphos. This is the Hellman home place and Rick sells Pioneer Seed Corn. One of Doug’s carvings of a bear holds his mailbox at the entrance of his driveway. He said two of his greatest challenges is the huge carving of Paul Bunyan and one of mama bear with two cubs in a tree. Doug has been commissioned to do two carvings for the upcoming Fort Jennings Bicentennial Celebration. He has been working on this project in Rick Hellman’s barn. One is of Col. William Jennings and the other is of a Native American Indian. Both statues are 12-13-feet tall and each one weighs about threefourths ton. The logs were purchased from the Siefker

One Year Ago • Dozens of tornadoes spawned by a powerful storm system wiped out entire towns across a wide swath of the South, killing at least 200 people in the deadliest outbreak in nearly 40 years, and officials said today they expected the death toll to rise. 25 Years Ago — 1987 • Robert Aldrich Jr., a senior at Jefferson High School, was named an Elks national allocated $1,000 winner. He was a third-place winner in the Elks Lima district and was a firstplace state winner. Aldrich was the only person from the Lima district to receive a national award. • State Rep. Bill Thompson (R-Allen) said Monday he would meet with representatives of the Dumpbusters in Columbus to be brought up to date on the proposed landfill near Spencerville. The Dumpbusters, a group of Spencerville and Amanda Township residents, has actively opposed the landfill for several months. • Frills and Frogs O.C.C.L. met in the home of Mary Menke. Guest speaker Frank Sukup gave an interesting slide presentation of his trip to China. Denise Sukup conducted the raffle. Lunch was served by Mary Menke and co-hostess, Kathi Gasser. 50 Years Ago — 1962 • The Delphos Bending Company will have one of its merry-go-rounds for children on the nationally televised “The Price Is Right” program on May 9, it has been announced by company spokesmen. Louis Scherger, vice president of the local company, said it has been manufacturing merry-go-rounds for about six years and sells about 200 every year. • The United Presbyterian Women’s Organization of the First United Presbyterian Church held its annual motherdaughter tea Thursday evening in the adult church school room. Laura Spitnale entertained the group with a piano solo, and Anita Chiles and Linda Wiedeman presented a vocal duet. • Coach Bob Kurucz’ Blue Jays baseball team ran its victory string to six Friday afternoon when it defeated the Big Green of Ottoville, 13-3, in a game played at the City Recreation field. Gene Klaus and Jim Lang teamed up to pitch a 4-hitter. Von Kaenel was on the mound for the Big Green and was credited with four strikeouts and three passes. The Jays nicked him for 10 hits. 75 Years Ago — 1937 • E. E. Sheeter, proprietor of a used car and auto parts business at First and Main streets, has purchased the Rahrig Garage building adjoining his present place of business and will take charge of the additional building within 30 days. Sheeter plans to operate the garage in connection with his present business. The old residence fronting on First Street, used now for storing auto parts, will be razed and a portion of the second floor of the Rahrig building will be used for storage of these parts. • Plans for a Mother’s Day program were made Tuesday evening when the members of the Young Ladies’ Sodality of St. John’s Church met in the school assembly. The following committee chairmen were named: Alice Lindemann, chairman of entertainment committee; Mary Elizabeth Wulfhorst, refreshment, and Dorothy Ditto, favors. • John Pitsenbarger and Merlin Zuber have leased the room on North Main Street formerly occupied by the Bickel Store and are remodeling it in preparation to removing the Pitsenbarger and Zuber Auto Accessory Store from its present location in the Cook building to the new room. The Pitsenbarger and Zuber store is now located at 302 N. Main St. The address of their new store will be 303 N. Main, directly across the street.

Hoehn carving the Indian. Saw Mill, east of Delphos. Col. Jennings is made of white oak and the Indian is carved from red oak. The paint job on both characters will be done by Kyle Hellman, as an Eagle Scout project. The Colonel’s coat and helmet will be done in blue. The Indian will be done in bright colors. Doug used 8 x 10 pictures of his characters as models. He uses the chain saw just like a carving knife. Then he finishes it off with an electric sander, making his carvings as smooth as satin. Doug has several chain saws of various sizes in his collection. The carved figures will be given a place of honor in Fort Jennings.

Delphos was paid a visit Wednesday and Thursday, by Lieutenant Herbert P. Nordwall, of Amsterdam, Holland, who is on a jaunt around the globe, most of the trip being made by foot. He is known as “Globetrotting Flying Dutchman.” Mr. Nordwall called at this office and recounted some of his experiences while visiting the different countries of the globe. Mr. Nordwall stated that he had never had the pleasure of seeing “Teddy” and was going to take advantage of the opportunity to do so in Delphos. He is a young man, 26 years old, is of athletic build and neat in appearance. He left Holland with a chum five years ago, to see the world. They first went to England, covering the entire countries of England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland, making their living as they went, selling post cards. Tiring of English life, they then crossed the channel into France, walked all over Switzerland, visiting every lake and famous mountain, and climbing Mt. Blanc. They covered Italy, Greece, Sicily and were in every large city on the continent. After doing Europe, they finally arrived in Smyrna, where they

were thrown into jail in July, 1909, where they laid for 40 days before the Dutch consul succeeded in gaining their freedom. During this time they wore the regular Dutch sabots, or wooden shoes and other Dutch apparel. They took ship to Bombay, covering British, India, and finally landed at Hong Kong, but as the “Chinks” did not look good to them, they sailed for San Francisco, where they arrived less than two years ago, and after seeing the sights of the coast and Alaska, started east on foot. Delphos Herald, May 16, 1912 ---------Ohio Electric Railway The Ohio Electric Railway has discontinued service between Kalida and Defiance because citizens of Continental, an intermediate point, claim the company never obtained a franchise to run its cars by electricity. Now the Ohio Electric is considering changing its route to cut out Continental and take in Miller City. The council of Continental is willing to grant an amended franchise. The Ohio Electric purchased the old steam road between Lima and Defiance. Delphos Herald,

May 14, 1912 ---------San Felice Addition and Roby Addition To our patrons and the citizens of Delphos: One year ago we stated we would build at least twenty houses in Delphos, and improve our properties with grading, walks, sewers, etc. To some, our claims looked like hot air. But we forged ahead, believing then as we believe now; that in order for a town to grow, one of the first things is to provide houses for the people to live in. It has been and will continue to be our purpose to give people a chance to own their homes by paying a little more than rent. Now as to what we have done. We have erected thirty houses that you will find by comparison are as good as will be found in any suburb of any city. All have been sold and the people who have bought them are glad they have started

Window to the Past

to own a home. We have invested $44,000 in the San Felice addition and $20,000 in the Roby addition. And all to remain forever as taxable property. This money has all been paid out here. We believe in Delphos and in patronizing Delphos. $24,000 of this money has been paid for Delphos labor. We are now ready to start another year’s building operations and we hope to do as much or more this year. If you want a house, commence now. The first to start will have a home first. We believe in a greater Delphos, but can’t make it greater without more homes. F.C. Laing, 228 E. 3rd St., Phone 597 Delphos Herald, Feb. 22, 1911 ---------There is talk of moving the Marbletown W.B. Church to a more central location, north of the tracks. ---------Get your carriage and buggy tops repaired at J. Scherger’s. Special low price on storm aprons and side curtains. ---------The Presbyterian ladies will hold a sale next Saturday of the goods made up for the bazaar.

They will be on exhibition at Klein’s tailor shop. ---------White shirts and colored dress shirts, suitable for holiday presents. Lion Clothing House. ---------Leonidas Balyeat and Henry German will represent Van Wert County at the National Congress of Farmers at Ft. Worth, Texas. Delphos Herald, Dec. 3, 1898 ---------Are Intoxicated Harry Harmon and Ralph Waldron both of Van Wert, were locked up by the local police Monday night at the close of a chase of nearly an hour. Reports of reckless driving had been made to the police and they had started in search of the offenders. The speeders, it was reported, had been driving wildly on the Cleveland street, had crossed Main at a high rate of speed and had driven into a yard on West Cleveland. While the police were looking for them, the pair came to grief as they returned east on Cleveland and struck a Chevrolet coupe at Main and Cleveland. Joseph Schuck, owner of

the Chevrolet, went to the police station and swore out a warrant for the arrest of the alleged offenders. They were picked up by Patrolman Wagoner and were lodged in the city jail for the night. Two charges were placed against Harry Hormon, driver of the Van Wert car. He was charged with operating an automobile at an excessive rate of speed and operating a car while under the influence of intoxicating liquor. Schuck, Tuesday morning, filed attachment proceedings in the Squire Bliss court, taking out an attachment on Harmon’s car to collect the sum of $150 alleged due to him for damages to the Chevrolet in the collision. Delphos Herald, July 14, 1925 ---------Postmasters It is currently reported that the post office department will soon issue an edict requiring all postmasters to wear a uniform consisting of light blue trousers with red braid down the legs, a white blouse with gold shoulder straps and lace and skull cap with a silver star on it.

By Liz Winhover Thrift Shop has a very wonderful and talented seamstress? She’s a great volunteer that can literally work miracles, too. This volunteer makes sure that our dolls are dressed and clean. She’s sewn countless outfits for innumerable Barbies, fine porcelain and china dolls, and the goodold loveable huggable baby dolls. Some of those wellloved (abused??) dolls have come to us naked and with no hair. You should see them now. It’s wonderful how she can work her miracles with them. You can find her work, her passion, her talents, her miracles in both the Boutique and the toy departments. This wonderful volunteer insists on remaining anonymous but we know who you are, and couldn’t be more grateful for your countless hours and talents. To her, she’s a “big kid playing with dolls.” To us, she’s able to work miracles and bring smiles to little girls’ faces. A couple of new items to report: The very much needed new drop-off window has been installed and is functional for all to use. The new building is progressing at a fast pace now and is looking great. It’s created some chaos, especially in the social services department but will be well worth the temporary inconvenience of having things piled on top of piles. We’re thankful and smiling because of all the donations that we continue to be blessed with. Because of all of you, we’re able to fulfill our mission, which is to help those in need. All of the summer clothing, including the bathing suits, are now out on the racks. We’ve purchased more display racks, so the selection is huge in every department. Be sure to browse around. God recently welcomed into His open, loving arms, one of the Thrift Shop’s most beloved volunteers. Linda Mox spent countless hours sorting, displaying, and helping run the Boutique Department. She did her work with passion and knowledge. Linda was a compassionate, wonderful person who will be sorely missed by everyone who knew and worked with her. Our sincere sympathies are extended to her husband George, her children, her grandchildren and Linda’s best friend, her sister, Louise. Linda led by example because she knew that if we aren’t like Christ to others, we are not carrying out God’s plan. We thank this Christian lady for a job well done. Until the next time, that’s this month’s report.

Errors costly again for St. John’s
By JIM METCALFE jmetcalfe@ DELPHOS — Errors dropped the St. John’s baseball team into a 3-way tie for the Midwest Athletic Conference lead Thursday night in a loss at Versailles. Errors dropped them out of the top spot Friday night at Stadium Park, with New Bremen the recipient in a 10-9 triumph and now in the driver’s seat as Versailles fell to Minster. “For the second game in a row, our defense cost us. We haven’t played solid defense for the last five games but we got away with it the first three,” St. John’s coach Dan Metzger explained. “You just can’t make those mistakes against the type of teams we’re playing now and get away with it. We have to get back to playing sound defense.” The Jays actually out-hit the Cardinals 12-6. The Blue Jay defense also turned two double plays, the first in the top of the first inning as Alec Frideger led off with a double to right center and a balk on starter Cody Kundert (5-1; 4 1/3 innings, 3 hits, 9 runs, 2 earned, 6 walks, 5 strikeouts) put him at third. A line drive by Aaron Clune was caught by third sacker Troy Warnecke and doubled up Frideger. “We took advantage of what they gave us. They made a few mistakes defensively and we took advantage of their wildness,” Bremen coach Greg Cox said. “We started off so well but when Aaron hit that hard liner right to the third baseman and Alec got doubled-up, I thought ‘here we go again.’ That’s been something that has happened to us this year, especially with how St. John’s hit the ball tonight. However, we had some good hits to go with our patience at the plate. This was a good contest, what you expect in the MAC.” The Cardinals (11-7, 5-1) drew first blood in the top of the second thanks to three big errors, including one with the bases loaded on a suicide squeeze by Aaron McCollum. The Cardinals, who only had six hits — two in the second — but received 10 free passes, got a big bases-clearing double to left by Clune (3-for-5, 5 runs


St. John’s senior Austin Reindel, who went 2-for-3 with 3 runs scored and two runs batted in, takes home on a wild pitch in the fifth for the Jays’ 7th run as New Bremen’s Aaron Clune covers. Ryan Densel was at the plate during the sequence. batted in) that put them up 4-0 and another error allowed Clune to make it 5-0. Kundert then retired seven of the next eight batters, allowing the Jays to rally. The Jays (14-5, 4-2 MAC) reduced that by three tallies in the home half against Cardinal lefty Clune (2-2; 4 2/3 IPs, 11 hits, 7 earned runs, 3 BBs, 3 Ks). With one down, Austin Reindel (2-for-3, 3 runs, 2 runs batted in) walked, Jordan Bergfeld doubled to left center (just out of the grasp of centerfielder Brent Bertke’s great effort in the gap), Ryan Buescher tripled to deep right center to bring them both in and Ryan Densel (2-for-2, 2 walks) knocked Buescher in with a slice to right with two down. However, he was caught stealing by McCollum (2 walks at the plate). The hosts wasted a golden chance to get closer in the third. Tanner Calvelage led off with a hit to center and stole second. An out hence, Troy Warnecke beat out a bad-hop single that shortstop Frideger kept on the infield, keeping Calvelage at second. He took third on a fly ball to right by Isaac Klausing but a comebacker by Reindel kept the game at 5-3. The Jays took the lead with a 3 spot in the fourth. With one down, Buescher slapped a liner up the gut and Kundert went yard to left field, tying the contest at 5. Densel blooped a hit to left, stole second with two down and scored as Geise launched a ground-rule double to deep center to take a 6-5 edge. However, Warnecke lined out to left to keep the same score. New Bremen responded with another 5 spot in the fifth inning, again aided by an error to go with five free passes, another balk and a sacrifice fly by Frideger. Kundert saw his stint on the mound (after 88 pitches, 47 strikes) end after one out and facing five batters, giving way to Klausing. The lone hit was a ground-rule opposite-way double to left by Clune off the reliever that made the score 10-6. The Blue and Gold replied but again missed a great opening. With one out, Reindel slapped a knock to center. An out hence, Buescher roped a hit the opposite way into right that put runners at the corners. Kundert walked to load the bases. A wild pitch plated Reindel for a 10-7 edge and Densel walked to reload the bases and bring Bertke (3 walks at the plate) on in relief. He struck out the next batter to keep the damage at one run. Another double play helped the Jays keep the deficit at three in the sixth frame. The Jays crept closer in the home half, Geise got on via an error but was eliminated when he was picked off base by Bertke and got tagged out in a rundown. Warnecke walked but was eliminated on a Klausing grounder. Reindel then took the ball out to the deepest part of the field to get the Jays within 10-9. The Cardinals loaded the bases with one down in the seventh (a walk, a hit batter and a bloop single by Clune) before Klausing got out of the frame to keep the Jays within a run. Buescher got aboard via an error to commence the Blue

Jay seventh and an out later, Densel walked. Calvelage walked to load the bases but he got doubled-up on Geise’s soft liner that second sacker Ethan Elshoff grabbed in the outfield grass to end the contest. “Our pitching struggled with falling behind in the count and walks today. Cody struggled with his location, especially on the breaking ball, and then he had to come into their zone; they hit the ball well in those situations,” Metszger added. “We kept coming back every time and that’s good to see. Our offense was tremendous today. We’re becoming more consistent at the plate; our offense gave us the chance to win today. Again, if we can keep that coming and shore up our defense, we’ll get back to winning.” Both teams return to action today in doubleheader action: St. John’s at home versus Spencerville (noon) and the Cardinals at Arcanum.

Bearcats shut out Big Green in baseball action
By BOB WEBER The Delphos Herald OTTOVILLE — Friday night, the Spencerville Bearcats traveled to the home of the Ottoville Big Green for a nonleague baseball game. The Bearcats used some excellent combination pitching by Kasey Lee and Joel Shimp and some timely hitting to come away with a 3-0 victory. After a scoreless first inning, the Bearcats were able to cross the plate first with a run in the second inning. Tanner Koverman doubled deep to center field with one out in the inning. After a wild pitch that advanced him to third, Koverman scored the Bearcats’ first run with a runproducing single off the bat of Bryce Ringwald. The third inning saw the Bearcats stretch their lead to 3-0. After Big Green pitcher Travis Maag got the first two batters of the inning out, Matt Youngpeter was able to reach first with a walk. He advanced to second on a wild pitch and moved to third on a balk. Kasey Lee brought home Youngpeter with a single, making the score 2-0. Lee advanced to second on another wild pitch in the inning and scored on Koverman’s single, making the score 3-0 Bearcats. The game offered the Big Green many changes to score as they had runners on base all seven innings; however, the big hit never came for the home team. The Big Green stranded 12 runners for the game. Head coach Tony Castronova expressed his disappointment after the game with his team’s performance: “We’re struggling again. There’s really nothing good that came out of that game today for us. We won three games (Ft. Jennings, Lima Perry, Wayne Trace) this week and now have lost two straight (Continental and Spencerville). We left 12 men on base and it was early in the game. We had our chances but our big guys

8 – The Herald

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Roger Geise grew up in Delphos in the 1950s and 60s. He currently lives in Chillicothe with Linda, his wife of nearly 40 years. He retired from full-time teaching at Chillicothe High School and now teaches at Ohio University. He has been reminiscing to help pass the time while recuperating from an injury. He began to record those thoughts in the form of a story entitled, “Tour Down 1950s Main Street.” It is a five-block trip north in and out of the businesses on the east side of Main Street starting at the Penn Central Railroad and then a return on the west side of the street. These memories are based on the adventures of a curious 10-12 -year-old boy. Here is the fourth installment of five stories.

‘Memories down Main Street’

Let’s get our bikes from the rack in front of the Herald Office and ride south down the sidewalk. As we pass the Eagles clubhouse, I’m reminded of when we were 5- or 6-year-olds in the 1950s. We nervously lined up here in a huge room to get our mandatory school immunizations. Even now if you scan your upper arm you can probably still see the tiny scar from that compulsory Smallpox vaccination. You may also remember that test as the one that itched so much. Polio vaccines were given here, too, I believe. Thankfully we live in an age and a society where those terrible diseases have now been eradicated. Next we have Dr. Weber’s office and Butler’s Bakery. Whenever I had an extra 15 cents, I spent it at the bakery on dayold donuts or raisin-filled cookies before delivering newspapers on my route. The Club Cigar Store was nearby. As I delivered the Herald to this smoky room, I always looked at the 40 or 50 rifles and shotguns racked high up on the south wall. I also valued this establishment for its supply of nearly all RG Dunn and San Felice cigar boxes in the glass display case. The man behind the counter usually rewarded my request for an empty box that I took home to have storage for my “treasures.” Nearby, Pat Linder had a sporting goods store. In those days, sporting goods principally meant fishing and hunting gear. Pat must have been nearly 80 at that time. He usually sat in a rocking chair behind the counter and greeted customers as they entered the store. As I recall, one day someone had brought in three snapping turtles. Each was large enough to fill a galvanized washtub sitting in the middle of the main aisle of the store. And that’s where

Across the street is the Commercial Bank Building. Brake a minute. Looking west behind the bank you will see my uncle John Grothouse’s barber shop. He was often busy here Butchwaxing a crewcut for some high school boy. I once had orders from mom to have uncle John cut my hair after school. I followed her orders, but as I descended from the barberchair, I could not locate the “green back” that she had given me before leaving for school. At the time I thought her punishment unfair, making me repay the dollar; but I have since re-evaluated the lesson.

At the appointed time See MAIN STREET, page 9 they remained for a couple of days. Pat was friendly enough with kids to answer all my questions about these giant, dangerous reptiles. Word has it that some years before this event it was customary for farmers and their wives to come to town on a Friday night to do their shopping. Women would leave their husbands with Pat, do their errands, and later pick up their men after Pat had “held court” with them. Now be careful as you ride past Scott’s Grocery. We don’t want to hit someone coming out with a couple of paper bags full of food and a glass milk bottle. Scottie himself was inside at his usual spot at the register, wearing a white apron and a smile. Steve and Rose Wahmhoff’s Pioneer Drug Store was located in the same block. I recall my mother taking me to Wahmhoff’s as a very little boy to buy a rosary, a scapula, and a First Communion missal to be used in the Catholic Mass. It was a dark, crowded store with boxes of items stacked to the ceiling. It must have been the local religious bookstore as well as a pharmacy. I wonder who cleaned out the boxes of religious articles, the crucifixes, the Catholic missals and the St. Christopher medals when the store closed. And where did the Latin hymn books go when the vernacular was changed from Latin to English in 1964? Ott Moenter’s Western Auto was one of my favorite stores along this block. It had a plate glass front and a large red and white street sign in the shape of a spiral pointing to its front door. Park your bike here a minute. Let’s go inside. I want a tube of BB’s and a set of streamers for my bike anyway. As a kid when I entered the front door, I was always attracted to the dozen shiny, red Western Flyer bikes flanking the aisles with headlamps, horns and saddlebags. I usually walked past these, past Wizard tools and Truetone radios to the display of tackle boxes, stringers and various sized Golden Eagle fish hooks. Among the tackle boxes were several sizes of spears for frog-gigging. Kenny Wagner, Kevin Clark, Dave Lause and my little brother, Gerry, all had spears. We used to paddle up and down Jenning’s Creek behind Leslie Peltier’s on homemade rafts made from two car inner tubes and scrap wood that we had salvaged from Birkmeier’s Monuments on Canal Street. We scouted targets for our spears. We spent many summer mornings and afternoons on that little stream and have happy memories that will never fade. I loved fishing. Often I could be found at the canal behind Western Auto with a galvanized bucket halffull of bluegills or bullhead catfish. As a young angler, I was always looking to increase my fishing tackle and improve my fishing acumen. Western Auto was always an interesting store for me but the very best time to visit there was the few weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Ott Moenter and his helper, Alex Warnecke, opened the long, wooden stairway to his second floor Toyland. Anticipation grew as we climbed each step. The

Main Street

A view of the west side of Main street from the Murphy Store north. Starting from the top of the photo, you can see Pitsenbarger Supply on the northwest corner of Main Street, Si Powell’s store on the southwest corner, Odenweller Clothing, to the south and then Grants Five and Dime, The Equity, Schiff Shoe Store, Charles Shoe Store and Remlinger Rexall Drugs. Across the alley to the south was Murphy’s Five and Dime.

(Continued from page 8)

Si Powell’s Place as it looked after the Blizzard of 1978.

Every drug store, including Remlinger’s, had a soda fountain. My favorite order here was the 10-cent marshmallow Pepsi served in a shapely eight ounce glass by pretty high school girl Bonnie Nesbitt. The pharmacy window at the rear of the store was our occasional source for chemicals when we wanted to try to mix gunpowder to make our own firecrackers. We were not very successful at that venture and should have just relied on the more reliable Chinese imports. I want to show you something special. Park

your bike in the alley here or put down your kick stand or lean it against the parking meter. Let’s enter Murphy’s Five and Dime. Murphy’s is one of the local businesses where we used to get some Ohio State Sales Tax stamps that we would collect to donate to St. John’s School. Those varicolored two-inch square stamps somehow raised money for school projects. During the early spring, a few weeks before Easter, a unique sound permeated the Five and Dime. It was a constant “Peep, peep, peep”. Every kid wanted to stop and look at the Easter chicks. At the end

of the candy aisle, diagonally from the cashier, is a glass- enclosed eight foot counter dedicated to fifty or more pastel colored fluffy, live, baby chicks huddling under the warmth of a bare light bulb and scratching in sawdust. Want one? They’re a quarter each. A kid could pick one dyed his favorite color and point it out to the lady behind the counter. Then she would put it in a little cardboard box for the lucky boy or girl who was now all set for Easter. If the child had an extra quarter, the clerk would even “bag up” a quarter-pound of chocolate covered peanuts or raisins from the glass bulk candy bins. He wouldn’t even have to wait for her to wash her hands or to remove a plastic glove. Once I remember Mike Rode brought his black and white part Collie to play at our house. I was demonstrating how my Easter chick, barely pinfeathered, would perch on my finger. Mike’s dog appeared and startled the bird, causing it to fly half way across the back yard. The canine, of course, was in hot pursuit and caught the chick in its teeth before the bird reached safety. Nature at work. I’d have to wait another year for another chick! Murphy’s side door is open for ventilation, so let’s go out to the alley this way. Then we can see if we can walk on top of the 8-inch wide concrete walls bordering both sides of the canal without falling off. After that we’ll grab our bikes again and head south. (The final edition of ‘Memories Down Main Street’ will print on May 26.)

The Herald –11

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2012 An excellent way to make a lot of money in the year ahead is to emulate our old friend the turtle. Slow but steady progress can turn out to be one of the swiftest ways to achieve an ambitious objective. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Having concern for others is noble, but what really puts you in the right is that you help people without calling attention to it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Although you might not show any outward enthusiasm for the ideas or endeavors of others, you’ll appreciate what they do and, actually, won’t hesitate to try them yourself. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Even if your current actions seem like they could be profitable, you’ll still need to prime the pump to get things going. Make sure that trickle develops into a strong, ropy flow. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Because you’re full of fresh and innovative ideas, those with whom you get involved will find you to be a most simulating and interesting person. You make life interesting. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- There is no doubt that substantial returns can be generated through some type of collective endeavor. Don’t try to do things on your own -- team up with others. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Although it isn’t a departure from what you might usually take on when circumstances call for it, you will do quite well acting as a middleman. Do your thing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Victory in a career situation will not be predicated upon who you know but what you know. If you’re better prepared than the next guy or gal, you’ll come out ahead. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- You have much more in common with someone you recently met than you may initially realize. Today could mark the beginning of a long-term relationship with this person. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Only if you truly feel that you could help should you offer some advice to a friend who is seeking an honest assessment of a puzzling situation. What you see could be of crucial assistance. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Keep as many channels of communication open as possible. The more people with whom you brainstorm, the greater the chances you have of finding new opportunities. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Even tiny returns could be extremely significant. Several people might have ways for you to make small gains, which collectively could add up to quite a bundle. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Because your directives are nicely given and make sense, those in your charge will have no trouble following your lead. You won’t demand anything of them you wouldn’t do yourself. MONDAY, APRIL 30, 2012 It isn’t likely that you’ll be satisfied taking a backseat to anyone in the year ahead, especially when it comes to something that affects your interests. You will do quite well as long as you don’t take on more than you can handle. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Don’t allow anyone to involve you in petty social games just because that person wants to get even with someone he or she dislikes. Instead, enjoy all of your friends. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you hope to be content with your lot in life, it’s important not to compare yourself to others. Be honest with yourself and you’ll realize how fortunate you are. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Phrase your comments very carefully lest you inadvertently blurt out something hurtful. Once spoken, it could be quite difficult to explain or take back. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Put definite limitations on your purchasing so that your extravagant urges don’t get the upper hand. Spending foolishly on expensive things or events could do you in. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Although at times you can get away with handling several situations simultaneously, this might not be the case today. Limit your focus and efforts to one endeavor at a time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Make sure you handle all of your involvements in a mature manner. Others will have more respect for you if don’t try to play upon their sympathy and goodness. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- There are times when your strong personality can effectively enhance your image, but if you go overboard, it could be another story. Being a cocky hotshot will not play well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- As long as you don’t let selfdoubt weaken your thrust, you’ll have what it takes to be successful and accomplish your aims. However, any form of negativity will be counterproductive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Falsely flattering someone could pump up the recipient for the moment, but come back to haunt you later on when, as a result, your pal thinks you owe him or her something. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- There’s a strong chance that once again you might not fare too well with someone who has bested you in the past, especially if you try too hard to overtake him or her. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Don’t make any half-hearted promises today that you aren’t likely to be able to keep. Unfortunately, you will be taken up on what you say and embarrassed if or when you can’t produce. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -If you fail to help someone who asks for your assistance and desperately needs it, chances are you won’t like yourself, especially if you fail to lend a hand due to laziness.
