Letter carriers to ‘Stamp Out Hunger’
Staff reports DELPHOS — On May 12, the National Association of Letter Carriers will hold its 20th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive with the carriers at the Delphos post office participating. Approximately 50 million people in this country live in homes that lack sufficient food to feed them, with one in three being a child. That number increases every year. Last year, the Delphos community contributed over 1,700 pounds of food to the 70.2 million pounds that was collected nationwide. “We as letter carriers see how much need there is out there,” local food drive director Chuck Shumaker said. “People are struggling every day. We have customers ask us if we’ve heard about and job openings and we see the hurt in the kids’ eyes. When families are struggling, you see it in their eyes.” Shumaker said he’s been looking around and things don’t seem like they’re getting much better, either. “We have high unemployment, high food and gas prices and cuts to nutritional programs,” he said. “Senior citizens are having to decide between medicine and food. What kind of choice is that?” All customers, both within the city of Delphos and the surrounding rural routes, are asked to place their nonperishable food donations, including baby food and pet food, by their mailbox or ,in some instances, at the place designated for their mail delivery and the city carriers will pick them up at their normal delivery times. Rural route customers are asked to either hang them from their mailbox or place inside their box with the flag raised and the rural carrier will collect it. There will also be a box located in the lobby of the post office for those who wish to drop their donation off there. This year, all donations will be divided equally between the food pantries of the St. Vincent DePaul Society and the Interfaith Thrift Shop, as well as First Assembly of God, all in Delphos. St. Vincent DePaul Society Treasurer Denny Hickey said the food is much-needed and wellreceived at his facility. “We serve 400 families a year and probably 60-70 percent of those is with food,” Hickey said. “We don’t go purchase food for our pantry, it is strictly stocked through donations so with helps us quite a bit.” Interfaith Thrift Shop Social Services Director Becky Strayer agrees. “This food drive is excellent,” she said. “We have always seen a good response. It’s hard to explain how important it is. Last year, we got 1,200 pounds of food. That helps a lot of people.” Judy Williams is in charge of the pantry at First Assembly of God. She said the donation from the drive is critical. “We have gone to the food pantry in Lima and they don’t have enough for us,” she said. “We have a lot of people in need in Delphos. This is a tremendous boost for our pantry.” Delphos, Ohio

Students puzzle through assignment It’s my job

Dunlap keeps SAFY connected
BY STACY TAFF staff@ delphosherald.com

Last week, the second-grade classrooms at St. John’s Elementary invited high school students in to help put together 3-D dinosaur puzzles. Each group was given a different species of dinosaur, assorted pieces and directions to create the prehistoric puzzles. Puzzling through the assignment are, from left, Logan Dickman, Alexis Skym, Adelyn Martin, Katie Honigford, Karissa Fish and Sam Miller.

Kiwanis start on Garfield Park

Mike Ford photo

The Delphos Kiwanis Club has started projects at Garfield Park. Kiwanis member Jaime Wisher said the group hired a private contractor to lay a blacktop Thursday on what will be a high-school-regulationsize court stemming from fundraising held at such events as the annual Fourth of July festival. New playground equipment that will be installed Friday and next Saturday will include a four-bay swing for older children; a two-bay swing for younger children; and four pieces of free-standing equipment. The club will also put in new fencing along Clay Street that will be moved back from the road to allow for additional parking and enclose the playground equipment for safety. Volunteers are welcome for the equipment assembly next week.

DELPHOS — With the explosive growth of the internet and the rise of networking, businesses and organizations would find it hard to thrive without computers. Such is the case with Specialized Alternatives for Family and Youth. Database Administrator Bryan Dunlap makes sure all systems are up and running so SAFY can continue offering care and services to youth in the welfare and justice systems. “On a daily basis, I come in here and make sure the automated processes I set up are working properly,” Dunlap said. “I also have to make sure my automated reports also ran correctly. Then I need to check my e-mail and follow up with everyone who e-mailed me. We have 26 locations in eight states, so it’s difficult to coordinate changes. Changes throw people’s lives off, so I try to minimize that as much as possible. I’m also doing a lot of programming and working toward the new billing system we’re setting up.” Dunlap has been a Delphos resident his whole life and was happy to find a position close to home. “I got my associate’s degree in digital media from Rhodes State College in 1998 and in 2005 I got my bachelor’s from Bluffton University. From 1999 to 2006, I worked as a

web programmer for Rhodes State and then I worked for Flexible Foam in Spencerville for about a year,” he said. “From there I went to a company called The Right Thing, Inc., in Findlay and worked there until I came here in September of 2008. I was born in Toledo but I’ve lived in Delphos my whole life. My whole family is from here.” As with any job, Dunlap encounters the occasional challenge or hiccup but on the whole, he says he enjoys working at SAFY. “I really like the flexibility. SAFY has always been really good about working with unforseen circumstances, like if something happens with my kids,” he said. “I love doing the many things I do with computers and I get to go back to my roots occasionally with design, but most of it is

programming. I love the work and the people I work with.” Working for a non-profit organization also makes Dunlap proud to do his part in upholding the group’s mission. “Even though I don’t deal with them directly, it’s nice to feel like I have some impact on the foster kids’ lives,” he said. “I feel very rewarded every day. I get to do what I love and work with people from a vast array of different places. It’s challenging but fun. I always say my job is to make our clinicians’ and other employees’ jobs easier and that’s another thing I really enjoy.” Dunlap and his wife, Corrie, live in rural Delphos with their two children, a 9-year-old son Ethan and daughter Jenna, soon to be 13.

Saturday, May 5, 2012


Aaaaaahhh. Spring time. My son, Cameron, just finished finals for his first official semester of college. What a difference a year makes. At this time last year, he was just settling in to the halfway house, looking for a job and feeling pretty stressed. He was worried about everything: Would he find a job? Would it be enough to all his expenses? Could he find an apartment close to work because he didn’t have a car? The worries went on and on. So did mine. They were just a little different: Could he make it? Would he adjust to being out? Would he get in trouble again? And then, it happened. He started talking like a 25-yearold. He started making goals and plans to reach them. He moved on in the halfway to the honors dorm and was afforded some more of the creature comforts we take for granted like a fridge to keep milk, juice and munchies and other stuff in and a micro-

Ohio Military Hall of Fame honors veterans


Facebook partners with Honor Flight salutes Ohio vets Donate Life America
By Cathi R. Arends Director of Community Relations Life Connection of Ohio President and CEO of Donate Life America. “We want to encourage every Facebook user to take a moment and update their timeline, register to be a donor, and share their decision with family and friends. It is a simple way to provide hope for those in need.” The partnership signifies a giant step for the organ, eye and tissue donation community, bringing major exposure to the need for more registered donors and leading the public to officially designate themselves as donors, providing hope to the over 114,000 men, women and children currently waiting for a lifesaving transplant. Thousands more await needed tissue or corneal transplants to resume normal lives or restore sight. To find out more about Donate Life America visit www.facebook.com/ DonateLife. To register to be an organ, eye and tissue donor in Ohio go to www. DonateLifeOhio.org.


COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio Military Hall of Fame is ready to induct its newest class of veterans honored for wartime actions that went above and beyond the call of duty. This year’s class includes veterans who served in World War II and conflicts in Korea, Vietnam and the Middle East. Veterans being honored have received commendations such as the Navy Cross, the Silver Star, the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Bronze Star, the Army Commendation Medal and the Navy Commendation Medal. Friday’s ceremony takes place at the Veterans Plaza at the Ohio Statehouse. The ceremony will bring to 218 the number of inductees, of whom five have received the Medal of Honor.

Donate Life America, the national organization dedicated to increasing the number of registered organ, eye and tissue donors that save and heal lives, today announced a major initiative with Facebook. On May 1, Facebook launched an upgrade to its timeline structure, which asks users to check their organ donor status and directs them to Donate Life America’s National Registration Page, allowing them to designate a donation decision if they have not done so already. In an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America” Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced COLUMBUS (AP) — The the new initiative and became Ohio Health Department says two people have fallen ill from salmonella linked to dry dog food that was subject to a nationwide recall.

He was working at a plant in Piketon in 1958 when he enrolled in night classes at Rio Grande, where he earned nearly 40 credit hours before he had to drop out when he lost his job due to downsizing. But Elliott, who describes himself as a “life-long learner,” took advantage of educational opportunities whenever he could, eventually earning a GED diploma to finish high school and taking a history course at Ohio University Southern in Ironton. Elliott continued working as an International Brotherhood of Boilermakers union welder traveling to jobs in Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania. He also studied theology for three years to become a Church of the Nazarene pastor in 1967, a vocation he continued after retiring from welding in 1984. But Elliott had to give up pastoring a couple of years ago. “I worked 12 to 15 hours a day seven days a week pastoring, and I couldn’t keep that up,” said Elliott, who still studies the Bible, writes sermons for other ministers and

The great-grandfather said it would have been wonderful to have his degree earlier, but he isn’t wasting time on regrets. “I’m just grateful that I will finally be able to walk across that stage in a cap and gown and get the diploma I always dreamed about,” said Elliott, who insists that won’t end his education. “I intend to keep learning as long as I live.” Elliott has been encouraged to write a book combining his sermons and autobiography. “I may just do that, if I can find the time,” said Elliott, who will be 90 in July. Elliot’s three children, — ages 69, 62 and 59 — will be there to see their father graduate. “We’re very proud of him,” said son Terry Elliott, also of Franklin Furnace. “It’s awesome to be 59 and preparing to attend your father’s college graduation.” The adult program at the private university of about 500 undergraduates is for those 24 and older who had to leave college before getting a degree and usually requires extra course work, said Zak Sharif, dean of Rio Grande’s College of Professional and Applied Studies. But Elliott’s long experience and previous courses were enough. Sharif said Elliott is a perfect example to other adults that “it’s never too late.”

A group of Northwest Ohio veterans recently traveled to Washington, D.C. as part of the Honor Flight program. More than 150 veterans flew from Northwest Ohio to visit the World War II, Vietnam, Iwo Jima and Korean War memorials and Arlington National Ceremony. U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown met with the veterans near the World War II memorial on the National Mall. “Ohio’s warriors have earned the respect of a grateful nation. The Honor Flight Network program helps bring our veterans to visit their memorials built in honor of their service and sacrifice,” Sen. Brown said. “As a member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, it is an honor to fight to ensure that these veterans have access to the resources needed to heal, recover, and continue to enrich the Ohio communities that they live in today.” The Honor Flight Network is a nonprofit organization that helps transport America’s veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices. According to the organization, top priority is given to America’s most senior veterans — survivors of World War II and any veteran with a terminal ill-


ness who wishes to visit their memorial. Sen. Brown, a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, has convened field hearings around Ohio to examine how the U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA) can better serve veterans in rural areas and cities across Ohio. He is the author of several legislative initiatives that would strengthen our nation’s commitment to veterans by improving education reimbursements and expanding employment protection for former service members. Sen. Brown has held more than 200 community events since being sworn into office in 2007—holding at least one roundtable discussion with community leaders in each of Ohio’s 88 counties. Many of his legislative priorities, including his jobs initiatives, originated from these discussions.

“Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.”
— Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, “father” of America’s nuclear navy (1900-1986)

The 21st century post office
One Year Ago • It was a pleasant afternoon for baseball Wednesday night at Stadium Park as St. John’s “visited” New Bremen in Midwest Athletic Conference action. It was also a very wellplayed game, with the Blue Jays pushing a run across in the top of the fifth and the combo of Jordan Leininger and Curtis Geise doing the rest in a 3-2 victory. 25 Years Ago — 1987 • Allen County Chapter of the American Red Cross presented its “Home Alone” program to Delphos Girl Scout troops Monday at Franklin Elementary School. Red Cross instructor Gerald Kemper presented “Home Alone” booklets to Chrissy Shumaker, Renee Straman and Crystal Schrader. • Jefferson’s baseball team downed Ada 8-2 Monday. Sam Miller went the distance to gain the win striking out six and walking five. Tom Williams took the loss. He struck out six and walked four over seven innings. Jefferson was led by Bob Aldrich, 3-for-3 with a double, Sam Miller, 2-for-3 and John Marihugh, 2-for-4. • Fifth graders Brian Schroeder and Erin Pothast were chosen winner and runner-up in the final competition of the Fort Jennings Elementary Civic Oration Contest sponsored by Modern Woodmen of America. Schroeder and Pothast each received trophies and gold award pins. 50 Years Ago — 1962 • Pitching 5-hit ball, Tubbs, for Defiance High School, blanked the St. John’s Blue Jays, 2-0, Friday afternoon in a game played at Defiance. The Jays out-hit Defiance, five to three, but were unable to bunch their hits when needed. Five Jays were left stranded during the game. Dan Cramer pitched for the Jays, struck out two and gave up four bases on balls. • Career Day was held at Elida High School May 4, sponsored by the Elida chapters of Future Business Leaders of America and Future Teachers of America, in conjunction with the school guidance department. Annual awards were made at that time. Recipients were Carol LaRue, Elida FBLA president and National FBLA vice president; Wayne Nealy, PTA president; and Kathy Brigg, FTA officer. • Brother Marius O.S.F., son of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Grone of Delphos, recently returned to New York City after spending the Easter holidays with relatives and friends. During the past year Brother Marius has been busy engaged in writing a teacher’s handbook of biology. 75 Years Ago — 1937 • Rev. Bertrand J. Shenk, well-known Delphos young man, will be ordained to the priesthood by the Most Rev. Karl J. Alter D. D., Bishop of Toledo, on May 22. Rev. Shenk, one of three young men in the ordination class, is the younger son of Mrs. Louis H. Huber of Delphos. Rev. Shenk’s elder brother, Rev. Joseph Shenk, Toledo, was ordained in May, 1934. • “Gay,” a comedy in three acts, is to be enacted by the members of the senior class, in a matinee performance May 6 in the Jefferson auditorium. Included in the cast are Idabell Cross, Helen Dukes, Donald Seymour, Dorothy Miller, Mary J. Brittingham, Helen Jones, Richard Redd, Eunice Myers, and Ralph Westrich. • The members of the Past Matrons Club met Thursday afternoon at the home of Mrs. R. E. Hinderleider, South Franklin Street. Mrs. E. Burnett presented an interesting paper. Following the business session, a contest was enjoyed. Mrs. John Judkins received the honors. The next session will be June 1 with Mrs. George Horine, North Maple Street. History took some interesting turns during the last week or so. The Senate passed a bill known as S – 1789 – the 21st Century Postal Service Act of 2012. As with most bills from Congress – no one is perfectly thrilled with all the aspects of this comprehensive piece of legislation. However, everyone involved did get some of the things they had hoped for. By the way, this bill has a long way to go before it can become a law. As with any bill, the House has to approve a similar measure and then there has to be a melding of both versions that must be presented to the President for his signature. Be assured there will be a lot of lobbying going on before that happens. According to postal history, the bill that changed every aspect of the post office was the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970. Public Law 91-375 enacted on August 12, 1970 was an act “to improve and modernize the postal service, to reorganize the Post Office Department and other purposes.” This law was signed by then President Richard M. Nixon and was implemented on July 4, 1971. There are some 70+ pages published in the Federal Register that outlined how the newly formed United States Postal Service was to handle its adminis- not get relate to the reductration, employees, and per- tion in the number of days of formance of its core mis- delivery and provisions that would have begun sion-- to deliver to erode some of America’s mail. the benefits guarLooking at the anteed in the colcurrent language lective bargaining of S. 1789, some agreements with of the points that the various unions. the Postal Service It has placed a had been pushmoratorium for 24 ing for were realmonths to allow ized- the release studies to be conof funds placed in ducted before escrow that came we would go to from the overpayfive-day delivery ment of prefundand there are only ing retirement and Levitt minor changes to health benefits.

The items that USPS did It is a lengthy and complicated process that has at is core a very profound element. I’ll paraphrase, no post office may be closed solely on the basis of financial issues. This provision is still intact and protects those small post offices that were never intended to be profitable. Whew! Take a deep breath, but don’t hold it too long. Someday there may be a more streamlined and financially based manner to close the small, neighborhood post office. But one thing is clear, the salary and benefits of postal employees and federal employees as well, are right in the sights of the Congressional arsenal that is aimed at reducing the cost of government. As I asked the question in a previous article, “Is the US Postal Service history?”; numerous aspects of it are long gone with no return in sight. The views expressed in this article are my personal views and do not reflect those of any government entity or the administration of the Museum of Postal History, Inc. Unless otherwise stated, the quotations are from the official summary of S 1789 as written by the Congressional Research Service, a nonpartisan arm of the Library of Congress, which serves Congress.

By Sara Berelsman May is Mental Health Month. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 20.9 million American adults, or about 9.5 percent of the U.S. population age 18 and older in a given year, have a mood disorder. Mood disorders include bipolar disorder. It is also estimated that 1 in 4 people will encounter a mental health issue in their lifetime. I have talked to various individuals recently about mental illness — people of all ages and backgrounds — having personal experience with a disorder or disorders. The disorders ranged from anxiety to ADD to OCD to depression, but what they all have in common is the desire of each person afflicted to be like everybody else. It’s a daily struggle. Everyone has ups and downs. I know a girl whose ups and downs are not “normal,” however. Being bipolar means that for stretches of time, she can be so depressed it is hard for her to get out of bed and function. Things she normally enjoys, like playing with her kids, are devoid of happiness and fulfillment. She feels empty, aching and heavy. The simplest tasks are insurmountable. She is a writer, but during these times, she has no motivation and is mentally blank. She hurts all over. She doesn’t want to see or talk to anyone. She sometimes cries for no discernible reason. As strange as it may sound, it seems to help; she feels a little relief after a good cry. Music helps. Sometimes all she can do is listen to songs that seem to “get” her and how she’s feeling. She’s learned, oddly enough, it’s more helpful to “embrace” the depressive episode than try to combat it. Overall, she feels horrible — she just wants to feel better again. At the opposite end of the spectrum, when the “high” (mania) kicks in, her brain is bombarded with thoughts so fast and furious that she can’t write them down as quickly as they come. She feels an explosion of creativity and the writing ideas are endless. She is compelled to constantly “do” in this state — clean, bake, exercise, shop; she can’t stop. She is euphorically happy; in the car, upbeat music is on the radio and she is singing at the top of her lungs with the windows down. Everything seems perfect. She feels invincible and can, therefore, act impulsively. In this state, she finds it unbelievable that she was ever depressed. The lows are more frequent than the highs. It doesn’t matter if the sun is shining or if everything is going right; she can plummet into a downward spiral. She thinks part of why she likes fall and winter and rainy or snowy days — weather everyone else seems to dislike — is because there’s no pressure to be happy when the weather’s “bad.” If she’s depressed on a rainy day, she feels somewhat justified. However, the weather can be wonderfully sunny and the depression can roll in like a dark fog and hang on. And hang on. And hang on. She just has to wait it out, let it subside, and even though it feels hopeless and never ending, she has to remind herself that she will feel good again — until the next depressive episode. Because of the way she is, she feels guilty. Like a burden. There are times that she just doesn’t want to be here. She wonders what’s wrong with her; why can’t she be “normal?” Everyone gets sad. But this is so much more than just “sadness.” From the outside, this girl has the “picture perfect” life. When people find out about her reality, they seem shocked. They kindly tell her she’s pretty, she’s smart, she’s funny, she has a beautiful family; she has it all ... so why is she depressed? I’ve also tried to convince her of these things, but... The girl is me. I’m not big on labels and I am reluctant to open up about myself. I don’t want people to view me differently or treat me differently. I want the stigma associated with mental illness to go away but I know that talking about it will be the only way to take steps toward that — one of the goals of Mental Health Month. There are many misconceptions and the media’s portrayal doesn’t always help. (Hello, Britney Spears meltdown.) Bipolar disorder seems to carry with it a particular stigma and “deranged” reputation. Unqualified people magically morph into psychiatrists and ignorantly and inaccurately throw the “bipolar” label around all the time, to simply write off anyone whom they perceive to be “crazy.” Unless people are doctors who’ve administered a thorough exam, just as people can’t necessarily spot the cancer patient in the room, they have no idea who is battling what psychological disorder. I realize there are people with good intentions, but if people really want to mean well, they should research. Talking to someone who has been given a diagnosis and really listening to them is one way. Telling someone with depression to, “Smile!” or “Pray about it!” might come from the best place in one’s heart and doing those things might not hurt, but if only it were that simple. It also doesn’t help to say, “You just need to change your mindset.” Again, great in theory. When dealing with a chemical imbalance, however, (which has been discovered in the brains of depressed people) that can only go so far. Just as I’d never profess to know what it’s like to be in the mind and body of someone with cancer, if people don’t have clinical depression, they don’t know what it’s like to be someone who does. People seem to need physical evidence to believe someone really isn’t well. Depression is like being in a full body cast. Every part of the body is affected. Mental illnesses should be taken no less seriously than physical illnesses. The brain just happens to be different from that of a “normal” person. It doesn’t help the clinically depressed when others assume they can guess what it’s like. They can’t. And that erroneous assumption makes those diagnosed with it feel worse in that there’s something fundamentally wrong. As well-meaning as people can be, it’s frustrating to hear some of their cures, such as, “Count your blessings!” I’m extremely grateful for all my blessings and well aware of all the “real” problems in the world. This adds another layer of guilt and distress — knowing that, logically, I should be happy. Logically, I should. In reality, due to this chemical imbalance, I’m not. Many people with loving families and successful careers, such as Kurt Cobain and Sylvia Plath, have fallen into infinite pits of despair and taken their own lives. These disorders go beyond logic — beyond counting blessings. I don’t expect everyone to understand. I still don’t understand. While there might not be one right thing to say to people you love who are depressed, simply loving them for who they are, the way they are, helps. I know there are people who care about me and my happiness and I sometimes exhaust myself trying to appear happy when I’m not. (It’s hard to feign excitement over a picture of someone’s puppy when you just don’t want to be there.) I think I get by this way, but a select few in my world can see right through me and know when I’m not “fine.” Though my husband still has a hard time understanding why I am the way I am, he has learned to just love and accept me. He’s stopped trying to “fix me,” because he can’t. If you believe that you or a loved one is suffering from a mental illness, get help. MentalHealthAmerica.net is a website devoted to mental health issues. Their website states to call, “1-800-273TALK if you, a friend or a loved one is going through a tough time in your life and you need someone to talk to.” The site also offers other information such as how to find treatment or a support group. You are not alone. I know it can be scary to talk about it. I know this alone doesn’t define who I am - but it’s part of who I am. If I can help just one person, that’s enough for me. Maybe if more of us start talking, the less scary it will be.

Bluffton won its first game against Transylvania 3-2 but lost game two to regular-season champion Anderson, Ind., 4-3. In game 1, the Lady Beavers got on the board early when Meagan Price (Toledo/Springfield) scored on a fielder’s choice in the bottom of the first. Two innings later, Lindsay Robertson (Cincinnati/Northwest) and Katie Clark (New Palestine, Ind.) crossed the dish following a Jessica Kuzara (Flat Rock, MI./ Huron) double to right center field, pushing the lead to 3-0. Two-time HCAC Player of the Year Megan Mitchell hit a 2-run bomb in the bottom of the fourth, making it 3-2, but Bluffton hurler Megan Patton (Waynesfield, Perry) held the Pioneers scoreless the rest of the way to secure the victory. Chelsie Osborne (Chillicothe/ Waverly) led the Beaver offense with a 2-of-3 game at the plate. Kuzara was 1-of-3 with two RBI. Patton ended the game with seven strikeouts and she allowed just two runs. Anderson got on the board right away in game two as the hosts put up two runs in the top of the first. A walk and an error allowed the Ravens to go up 2-0. The Beavers answered in the bottom of the second when pinch-hitter Natalie Nikitas (Jeffersonville, Ind.) picked up Kuzara and Robertson. The Ravens took the lead back on a 2-run homer by Yardley Collett in the top of the fifth. A Brittany Baker (Springboro) single in the sixth scored Kuzara and reduced the deficit to 4-3 but the Beavers were unable to push the tying run across as the scoreboard ended in Anderson’s favor. Kuzara had another big game at the plate as the freshman finished 2-of-3 with two runs scored. Patton took the loss, again going the distance, while allowing four runs, three earned, on five hits with two strikeouts and three walks. The Beavers will play in an elimination game 11 a.m. today against Manchester. The winner will move on to play Anderson at 1 p.m. Anderson University 4 (2910) Player ab-r-h-rbi Katie Lee cf 3-2-1-0, Amy Wuestefeld 2b 1-1-0-0, Natalie Moorhouse ss 2-0-0-0, Yardley Collett 1b 3-1-2-4, Lauren Smith dh 3-0-0-0, Stephanie Atkins c 3-0-0-0, Megan Ream lf 3-0-1-0, Katy Ogden 3b 1-0-0-0, Samantha Steele ph 1-0-0-0, Nichole Frazier rf 3-0-1-0, Devin Moorman p 0-00-0.

Library continues to celebrate 100 years
The week of April 9 through April 14 was National Library Week. A total of $93 in overdue materials was forgiven. Special programs were held throughout the week. On Sunday, April 15, the staff and board of trustees held an Open House and invited the public to tour the library and the First Edition buildings, in celebration of 100 years of library service to the community at the second street location. Lots of individuals deserve a thank you for their part in helping to make our celebration a memorable event: Mary Beth Weisenburger, the Lima Symphony Orchestra, Alex Benavidez, Paula Schumm, the Delphos Herald, Aero Printing, Board members and staff members, and, of course, all of our loyal library patrons. 14 new titles were added to our DVD collection this month: ADVENTURES IN LALALOOPSY LAND: THE SEARCH FOR PILLOW AMERICAN BEAUTY DISCO WORMS DOWNTON ABBEY SEASON 1 DOWNTON ABBEY SEASON 2 EXTREMELY LOUD & INCREDIBLY CLOSE THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO A HARD DAY’S NIGHT HELP JAKE AND THE NEVER LAND PIRATES: PETER PAN RETURNS SMITTY SPACE DOGS WAR HORSE WE BOUGHT A ZOO FICTION THE GILLY SALT SISTERS – Tiffany Baker In the isolated Cape Cod village of Prospect, the Gilly sisters are as different as can be.

In 2010 George was named by Guinness World Records as the Tallest Dog in the World—ever. He appeared on Oprah, and even has his own global fan club.

Why Colson spent Easter in prisons
Never forget, shouted the former Marine, that Jesus died as a prisoner. Was there anyone in the room who had ever been strip-searched, beaten and mocked? Did anyone know what it felt like to have the legal authorities use muscle in an attempt to wrench a guilty plea -- to a lesser offense, of course -- out of a desperate prisoner? “Has anything like that,” he asked, with a knowing smile, “ever happened to any of you?” “Amen,” said the prisoners. Some laughed, while others stared at the floor. Many waved clenched fists in the air to urge the preacher to keep going. Colson kept going. Was there anyone in the chapel who had been betrayed by a friend? Perhaps a friend even turned around and provided evidence to the state? Was there anyone present who had been convicted of vague crimes? In the end, of course, Jesus was executed -- between two thieves. But that wasn’t the end of the story, on that particular Easter morning in Colorado, or in any of the other Easter services the former White House powerbroker chose to spend behind bars after he founded Prison Fellowship in 1976. “If you want to know what Easter is about, then there’s no better place to find out than in the tombs of our society -- which is what our prisons are,” he said. “On this, of all days, prison is the one place that Jesus would be. Believe me.” After Colson’s death, most of the obituaries -- especially those produced in elite East Coast newsrooms -- fo-

The Herald —9

It wasn’t the typical Bible text for an Easter sermon, but the preacher knew what this congregation needed to hear. Never forget, he said, what Jesus proclaimed in his first sermon: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed.” This isn’t the sermon that many believers hear on Easter, but it’s the one that prisoners need to hear, said Chuck Colson back in 1992, facing a small chapel packed with men at a federal prison near Denver. I first wrote about this service for Scripps Howard in a column days after the service. This was also the sermon the former Watergate conspirator kept preaching to flocks behind bars during the decades between his own stay in Alabama’s Maxwell Prison in 1974 and his death on April 21 at the age of 80. Anyone who wants to understand what changed Colson from President Richard Nixon’s trusted “hatchet man” into one of the age’s best-known Christian apologists needs to understand this sermon. You see, Colson told prisoners across America and around the world, it was radical to proclaim “freedom for the prisoners” during the Roman Empire. And today? Anyone who preaches this message “in one of those nice churches downtown” will get the same icy response that Jesus did. “The rich and powerful people,” he said, with a dramatic pause, will “run you out of town.”

(Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and leads the GetReligion.org project to study religion and the news.)

cused on his Watergate role and, perhaps, on his pivotal work creating a new and powerful coalition of conservative Catholics and evangelical Protestants. Working with a team of talented researchers and writers, Colson also produced shelves of influential books and commentaries that addressed almost every controversial issue in American public life and politics. Sadly, this all-politics D.C. Beltway perspective may draw attention away from Colson’s trailblazing work in prisons, which ultimately created a network of more than 14,000 volunteers in more than 1,300 prisons nationwide and around the world. He also founded the Justice Fellowship organization, which has worked for the reformation of America’s sprawling, bloated, crowded and, all too often, destructive prison system. “That’s where Chuck developed his social conscience. It was in prison, in all of those face-to-face encounters with those forgotten souls,” said former Colson aide Michael Cromartie, in an interview this week. He currently serves as vice president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, but once served as Colson’s first research assistant after the creation of Prison Fellowship. “Chuck was never happier than when he took off his jacket and loosened his tie in a dingy prison chapel somewhere, facing rows of men in metal folding chairs who had big, thick Bibles in their hands. ... He embraced as many as he could. He tried to learn their names and hear their stories. He tried to make a difference in there.”

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2012 In the year ahead you’ll not be deprived of a substantial amount of opportunities, some of which could be of the long-shot variety. If you’re smart, you’ll restrict your risk-taking to sure things. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone who is aware that you can easily be manipulated through flattery might lay it on pretty thick in order to get something from you that he or she knows you’re apt to reject. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Usually, you’re the type of person whose word can be relied upon. Today, however, you might tell another that something is done when it isn’t, just to get him or her off your back. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Everything should work out fine for you in situations where you rely solely on yourself. However, the same might not be true in matters where you’re dependent on another. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Be careful about taking bows for something you have yet to accomplish, because it could backfire on you. Don’t let your pride put you in a situation that would cause embarrassment. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You usually operate very efficiently, as long as you can handle developments as they occur. Today, however, if you don’t have your moves planned in advance, you won’t like the results. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Keep an eye open on something you share with a partner that requires some astute handling, and which your partner is managing alone. If it’s botched, it could cost both of you money. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -When handling an important matter, take nothing for granted, even if the other party involved is a friend. If either of you gets careless, the profits could dwindle away. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Things will not automatically take care of themselves, even in arrangements where you have a strong momentum going. If you take your foot off the accelerator, the project will come to a halt. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Guard against inclinations to overindulge in activities that could cause your budget to blow a gasket. Do all you can to keep extravagant urges under control. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Because you’re easily tempted to take gambles in order to achieve an ambitious objective, you could let your impatience cause you to think unwisely. Be careful. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Refrain from embellishing information passed on to you just to make the story juicier. If what you say turns out to be hurtful, your credibility and reputation will suffer. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -It’s never a good time to count your chickens before they’re hatched, so don’t bank too heavily on making a huge financial gain that may or may not become a reality. MONDAY, MAY 7, 2012 The more knowledgeable you become in your chosen field of endeavor during the next year, the greater your possibilities for success. Do what you can to prepare yourself well, and opportunity will knock loudly. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Watch how you phrase your requests, or they could come out sounding more like demands than appeals. Try to see things from the others’ perspectives. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Strive to be a bit more comforting than annoyed if your mate is in a grumpy mood. Calming words could be the elixir that would work wonders on fraying nerves. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -The only way you’ll have anything worthwhile to show for your time is to apply industry, not apathy. Nothing will get done if all you do is voice excuses and neglect your duties. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A lot of discipline will be required in the management of your resources. To make matters worse, an additional dosage may be necessary in the handling of others’ funds as well. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Unless you’re careful, you could stoop to taking out your frustration on those for whom you care the most, only because you know they’re the ones who’ll take it without complaint. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Don’t attempt to use flattery, subterfuge or insincerity when trying to make a pitch for something you want. Those you deal with will be able to perceive your motives. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If your judgment is based on pure emotion, you may have trouble distinguishing between those to whom you should be generous and those who don’t deserve anything. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Be careful that you don’t wrongly cater to someone who never has and never will do you any good, while barely acknowledging one who has helped you out previously and would again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t let yourself become entranced with someone who is already committed. You’d be asking for trouble if you trespass in forbidden territory. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Treat all business endeavors seriously, but especially those involving people you know socially. Unless that distinction is clearly marked, you’ll be asking for trouble. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Should you find that your companions are only partially in accord with your purposes, causing you to attempt to manipulate them into agreement, they’ll be even more disenchanted. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Persons who are under your directives might need some skillful handling. Unless you can find a way to inspire them, they aren’t likely to accomplish much of anything.

Teen pleads guilty in terror case
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A teen from Pakistan with a once-bright future in the U.S. pleaded guilty Friday to terrorism charges for helping an American woman dubbed “Jihad Jane” support an Irish terror cell planning to wage a Muslim holy war in Europe. Mohammad Hassan Khalid had won a full scholarship to prestigious Johns Hopkins University before the FBI arrested him last summer at 17, making him the rare juvenile held in federal custody. Khalid, now 18, faces up to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to a single count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists. In a secret life online, the high school honors student had agreed to raise money and recruit terrorists for jihad. “It’s absolutely tragic,” defense lawyer Jeffrey M. Lindy said after the plea. “Was he feeling lonely after coming from Pakistan? Absolutely. But he was not a loner. He wasn’t the big man on campus, or captain of the football team. But he wasn’t a black trench-coat wearing loner.” Khalid lived with his hard-working parents and

siblings in a cramped apartment in Ellicott City, Md., while building an alternate life online. He met Colleen LaRose in a chat room when he was 15 and began corresponding with her. LaRose, who dubbed herself “Jihad Jane,” lived with a boyfriend in smalltown Pennsylvania, but had secretly converted to Islam and was appearing in jihadist YouTube videos. She faces life in prison after admitting last year that she had plotted to kill a Swedish artist whose cartoon had offended Muslims. In court Friday, prosecutors said that Khalid once received a package from LaRose, removed a passport from it and then forwarded other items to co-conspirators. He wanted to deliver the passport to them himself, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams said. “Khalid also sought confirmation from LaRose that her ‘brothers’ are REAL muhahids,” or jihadists, Williams said. Khalid also helped LaRose remove online jihadist posts after the FBI interviewed her, she said.

Friday’s Answers: The six letters that Benjamin Franklin proposed eliminating from the alphabet were C, J, Q, W, X and Y. He considered them redundant. He proposed the addition of six new letters for sounds he felt needed representation. The legal capacity of the bar featured in the TV sitcom ‘Cheers’ was 75. Today’s Questions: What Hollywood leading man provided the voice of the cartoon bee in TV ads for Nasonex allergy medication? What computer wiz, as a young prankster, phoned the Pope in Vatican City pretending to be Henry Kissinger calling from a summit meeting in Moscow? See answers in Monday’s Herald. Today’s words: Poecilonymy: the use of several names for one thing Algophobia: the fear of pain
