Delphos native Michael Betz has returned with My Town, LLC, to start a farmer’s market and more in downtown Delphos.
Delphos native returns with My Town, LLC
BY MIKE FORD firstname.lastname@example.org DELPHOS — Saturday mornings will soon become more active in America’s Friendliest City when a farmer’s market opens downtown. Organizers plan for the market to also include a range of eclectic goods, depending on those who choose to participate. Michael Betz is part of My Town, LLC, and he anticipates the market being an opportunity for area craftsmen to develop their small businesses. “It’s a great way to engage people and is successful in other cities close around us. If you go to Van Wert, Bluffton, Lima — they all have successful farmer’s markets that help add an enriched experience,” he said. “Many people like bakers and craftsmen have been told “this would make a really great business.” Well, this could be a really good portal for them to sell their specialty items. So, people can come buy produce for the week and also be exposed to other things ranging from people from the local art guild selling their art to someone who makes salsa.” This will set the local fair away from other farmer’s markets. “My Town is not just a farmer’s market. We’re doing several initiatives within

the city to add communityengaged activities for the city that will hopefully draw people from outside of Delphos; the smaller communities such as Ottoville, Fort Jennings, Spencerville, Middle Point and it will be a good portal to help downtown out by bringing more foot traffic in for the businesses that are open during that time,” he said. Betz has lived in other regions of the country and is confident it will work here. “I’ve lived in cities small and large where these endeavors work and would be practical, especially for a loyal town like Delphos. These initiatives are not to step on anyone’s toes in the community. It’s just to make a community vibrant so people see more activities, return to visit Delphos and to create activities for young and old and in between to partake and enjoy. “We start June 2 and it will be at the corner of Main and Third streets from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Saturday until Nov. 2. We’ll feature different vendors, ranging from produce to special novelty items to being an avenue for small businesses to grow their businesses and sell specialty items,” he concluded. Anyone interested in being a vendor can find more information at mytowndelphosohio.com or facebook.com/ mytowndelphosohio.

Let the mortar boards fly
The end of another school year is upon us. Classes have been taking field trips and enjoying the spoils of a year of hard work. Then, there are finals. Time to prove you were paying attention. Anxious seniors are ready to don their caps and gowns and make that last walk before the next phase of their lives begin. I don’t know about anyone else but I took a quick peek at my diploma to make sure it was signed. I wasn’t worried, I just wanted to make sure. For those who have loved high school, it may be bittersweet. They’ve thrown themselves into activities and athletics and made the most of the time they spent there. Friends will be going different directions. For those who would prefer to stay because they’re not sure about their next step, hitch up those britches. It’s time to move one. Everything has an order and you’re only supposed to do high school for four years. Then you have to do something else. Sorry. For those who found high school a little less than they thought it should be, trust me, there is life after. It’s just something we all have to do so we can transition to the next level, whichever that may be. I think you’ll find there is a lot more ahead of you than you’ve left behind. For those who can’t wait to get out and get as far away from here as possible, I completely understand. I felt the same way. I move 240 miles away so no one would know me or my business and guess what – no one knew me or

We think we know everything about everything and in reality, we know jack. That’s why you need to pay attention in high school. Get all the ammunition you can to face the world when it’s over no matter what path you choose. That diploma you will receive means something. It’s a symbol of a right of passage. You’ve accomplished something. If it came easy, great. If you had to work your butt off for it, the accomplishment means more. Be proud regardless. You are about to embark on an adventure. It will be what you make it. It doesn’t matter if you are going to college, going to work or going into the service, you control your destiny. So if you’re super excited to start the next part of your life, scared to death or just relieved to have it over – let the mortar boards fly. In the end, all that matters is that you made through.

CINCINNATI — The 2010 opponents in Ohio’s U.S. Senate race had a cordial reunion Friday, with the defeated Democrat pointing to winner Rob Portman’s frequent mentions now as a possible Republican presidential running mate. Former Ohio Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher heads CEOs for Cities, a group of business, political and civic leaders working together on urban issues, and he invited Portman to be the closing speaker Friday for a Cincinnati conference that drew nearly 300 people. He spoke glowingly of Portman’s credentials for a national ticket — the senator is often listed among the potential choices for presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney. Fisher, who lost in a landslide in 2010, said Portman ran against him as “a conservative with common sense ideas.” While he still differs on issues, Fisher said: “I’ve always liked him and always respected him.” Portman continued to play down the running mate speculation, and suggested to reporters that he doesn’t think the vice presidential candidate makes much of a difference in election victories. “I don’t think people vote for vice president, they vote for president,” Portman said. Asked about descriptions of him in vice president speculation as “boring,” he smiled and replied that he thinks that might be a description for someone in Washington who is “not out there throwing partisan jabs. ... I like to work across the aisle and get things done.” Portman has repeatedly said he feels he is in the right place, as senator, to play a legislative role in seeking economic improvements. “I think our economy is in tough shape,” Portman told the group. “I think it’s weaker even than the numbers indicate.” He also urged group members to support legislative efforts to fight drug abuse, help freed convicts stay away from crime, and to improve energy efficiency. “As a conservative, I am for conserving, and for efficiency,” he said.
No call for mercy for killer of 2
By KANTELE FRANKO Associated Press COLUMBUS — The Ohio Parole Board recommended Friday that the governor deny clemency for a man sentenced to death for killing his estranged wife and brother-inlaw in a basement room at a courthouse in 1992. Abdul Awkal is slated to be put to death June 6 in one of 11 executions scheduled over the next two years. Awkal’s lawyer argued the 53-year-old man suffers from severe mental health problems and should be spared, but the state said Awkal carefully planned the killings and should be executed. The parole board voted 8-1 against recommending mercy, with most members concluding that Awkal planned the shooting and that it wasn’t the result of a psychotic breakdown. While he had asserted remorse, “he clearly blames the victims for allegedly creating the circumstances that forced him to kill them,” the board said. Its decision goes to Gov. John Kasich, who has the final say on whether to grant clemency.
Portman, former opponent Fisher Cordially reunite
“This defiant killer executed his 22-year-old wife and 24-year-old brother-in-law simply because his wife was seeking a divorce,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason said in a statement Friday. “Awkal shook the foundations of the justice system by committing these heinous acts in the County Courthouse, a place where citizens should be assured safety.” A message seeking comment was left for Awkal’s attorney. Awkal was sentenced to death for killing his estranged wife, Latife Awkal, and brother-in-law Mahmoud AbdulAziz, in January 1992 in a room where the Awkals were to take up divorce and custody issues. Their 1989 marriage, arranged by Awkal’s family, had dissolved as Latife Awkal and her brothers “felt that Awkal was not a good Muslim,” according to the report. The Awkals divorced and then remarried under Islamic law in 1991, but Awkal’s wife moved out and filed for a legal divorce days later after discovering she had contracted a sexually transmitted disease from him.
He woke up early this morning because of the anticipation of getting ready for work. His first task is to check his reflection in the mirror to make sure that he is clean shaven and has a shirt and tie on. He never knew when someone would be checking him over making sure he looked professional. There was a certain level of expectation his supervisor would have on how well he was prepared for work. All dressed he takes one more look in the mirror and he likes what he sees. He checks his wallet to make sure he had his ID, his pass for his transportation, and enough money to last him for several days. Now it is time to get his grip and get it packed. He had his clothes and his coveralls neatly folded from the night before. Then he checks to make sure he has a copy of his orders and schedule. Next he inspected his gun to insure that it was clean and empty. He had a pad of facing slips that had been stamped the night before with his dater and his trip number and his initials to use on his first trips. In his grip he finds the latest changes to the schedule to refresh his memory during the hours it takes to get to work. He also would remember to review the board at the station. He added a set of practice cards to his grip because his annual examination was coming up and he needed to get a 98 percent on the test just so he could keep his job. There were two tests. He had already passed the first exam, which was a group of questions about all the characteristics and the operation of running a train. He passed with a perfect score. But he knew all those questions inside and out. He really wasn’t surprised.
Now it was time to go. His wife and two young children all got in the car to drive Daddy to work. The kids were sad because they knew it would be a long week before they saw their Dad again. They really didn’t have enough time with him this week because he was studying every chance he got. They were familiar with the routine — a small suitcase would sit open on the kitchen table with all these little cubbyholes and dividers in them. Dad would sit there for hours putting little cards in the holes — over and over he would throw his “scheme.” The kids thought some of the names on the cards were really funny... names like Blakely’s Corner, Wolfcale and Dixon. When he was done throwing all the cards, he would check each one by first looking at the back of the card to see if he had gotten the card in the right cubbyhole. It sure didn’t seem like a fun game to the kids. At the railroad station, railway post office clerk Don “High Pockets” Fair kissed his wife and children goodbye. It would be six more days of hard work ahead before he would sleep at home and be able to play with his kids. The Penn Central train going east was his first trip. Here he caught the train to Pittsburgh to work the mail train known as the Pitts-chic...back and forth from Pittsburgh to Chicago. Don was proud of the work he did keeping the true purpose of the Post Office Department in mind. That purpose was outlined in the original Constitution of the United States of America. Postal workers everywhere were charged with the ultimate task of “Binding our Nation Together.” In those days, there was no internet,
email, or cell phones. They had party lines for the telephones and long distance calls were difficult to make and very expensive. The 100-year-old telegraph was still the fastest form of communication and for that you were charged by the number of words. Don met up with his crew at the Union Station in Pittsburgh. This was his family at work and they all knew each other real well. They needed to not only to get the work done but to get through the long and gruelling days and nights in one railcar. When there was work to be done no one ate until they all ate and no one slept until they all slept. Don knew this when he first took the job. He had seen the training films and had worked along side a mentor that had showed him the ropes. The thing that impressed Don the most was the way each of the people working on the train treated each other. There was no distinction for Black or White. These were all men and no one was allowed to fail at getting the job done — they helped each other out. The number of things that each one had to know was staggering. At the end of the line was the Palmer House just a few blocks from the train station in Chicago. Now it was time to get a meal, crawl into a comfortable bed and get some much needed rest. Tomorrow was another hard day. Today at 4 p.m., the Museum of Postal History will dedicated the Railway Post Office exhibit in honor of Donald E. Fair, retired RPO and postal manager. Stop in and thank Don personally for the work he did so proudly. Thanks, Don.

“Every moment one lives is different from the other. The good, the bad, hardship, the joy, the tragedy, love, and happiness are all interwoven into one single, indescribable whole that is called life. You cannot separate the good from the bad. And perhaps there is no need to do so, either.” — Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (1929-1994)

Since the work on the beautiful and substantial structure, the Jefferson School is nearing the end and will, after all, lie incomplete, a resume of its history, and the reasons for not finishing it, will prove interesting to the people. The Herald has obtained some facts and figures from the Secretary of the Board. When it was first determined that a more modern, beautiful and sanitary school was urgently needed, many representative citizens were consulted before determining the amount of money to be asked for. One hundred thousand dollars was voted for this purpose, and it is a matter of history that in order to have one good school, the board must erect two. The members of the board expended their own money and much valuable time, visiting schools in various parts of the country. After a great deal of thought, and many estimates, a certain plan was adapted which would give Delphos a school second to none in appointments, and at the same time devoid of expensive frills. Everything was planned for the comfort and health of the children, and it was to be erected for the years to come, to take care of the youth of a growing Delphos. It was planned to draw from the outlying districts and from other towns as well as Boxwell graduates, and pupils, thus adding a source of revenue which could not be solicited under existing conditions. The Board very wisely decided that it would be folly to build for present needs alone, for this would mean the necessity of additions to the building in the near future, and would mar its beauty, as well as adding greatly to the cost. The Board was obliged to build the Lincoln School first. (More on this later. R.H.) Next the Board took up the matter of wrecking the old Jefferson School, and received over $500 more out of the sale of materials than the highest bid. At this time the plans for the high school are complete, and from numerous supposedly expert sources came the information that this school could be erected with the money left on hand. Bids were therefore called for and when the figures were all in, the Board realized that a serious problem confronted them. To wait for a new set of plans, have them meet the stringent rules of the state inspector’s office and thereby lost much valuable time, besides the additional expense of new plans and advertising and in the end have a building unsuited for even present needs, seemed almost out of the question. After much deliberation, revision of figures and omissions, in the various contracts, it was made possible to let the contract for the work within and slightly under

Window to the Past
heating work must go in the unfinished rooms at once or necessitate tearing down later and building up again. One after another came the urgent pleas of contractors and architects and many were the meetings of the Board to inquire why this and that had been left out of the original plans. The extras were something fierce, and the only consolation for the Board was the fact that this same condition exists in building everywhere. Add to these unlooked-for extras, the original deductions of $13,282.80, and one can at least approximate what amount of money is needed to finish the building as originally intended. Then the equipment is another matter. The latter, however, could be added from time to time as needed, and does not cause the Board so much concern. To offset the gloom occasioned by these figures, the School Board and the public need but visit and examine the new temple of learning. The building is there, strong, durable and a monument to progressive Delphos. The Board is proud of the new school, and justly so. And they feel keenly their inability to complete it with the means on hand. It would be a shame to leave it thus — with only one floor completely finished. As can be seen it will require more than $15,000 to complete the building according to the original plans and at the same time take care of numerous extras. To further equip the building with interior fixtures and furnishings will run the total to about $20,000. Taking into consideration the close proximity to the new Public Library, the educational facilities of Delphos would be second to none and one of the greatest assets and advertisements the city has ever had. If the building is completed now, it will save about $2,000, and since it will not be possible to use the school this term, it would be proper to finish it at once, if possible. Let us think it over and see if we can afford to leave the school unfinished for one cigar or a package of gum on a hundred dollars worth of our property once a year, for ten years. If you are fortunate enough to have property valued at $1,000, it will cost you 50 cents a year for ten years. Delphos Herald, Jan. 12, 1912 ---------New Jefferson School The rough plastering in the basement of the new school is nearing completion and workers will commence placing the white coat soon. All the plastering has been completed on the first floor and carpenters will start laying the floors in the various rooms on Friday morning. Delphos Herald, May 16, 1912 ----------
the amount of money still on hand. With these changes, part of the building at least could be made habitable, and agreements were drawn up accordingly. Depending on a slightly increased tax levy for a year or two, it was determined that practically all the things left out of this time, could be added and the building be made complete when construction had reached that point. Then came the Smith 1 per cent tax law and its restrictions, and with it the most bitter disappointment. The auditorium, so much needed in Delphos, must remain a rough looking void. The glass conservatory, the gymnasium, the domestic science and manual training departments, a number of class rooms, the chemical lab, the swimming pool and numerous other things which make it a pleasure instead of a drag for children to go to school, must remain an eyesore — perhaps for years. The contracts for the Jefferson School were let: General contract, first bid $75,981.00, Deductions and omissions $6,240.00 Contract let for $67,787.50 Heating contract, first bid, $18,546.00, Deductions and omissions $4,720.30 Contract let for $11,815.00 Plumbing contract, first bid $4,087.00, Deductions and omissions $2,000. Contract let for $2,087.00 Wiring contract, first bid $1,125.00, Deductions and omissions $284.00 Contract let for $941.00 The total contract obligations at the time of letting amounted to $82,581.20. The $31,000 left after the Lincoln School was completed, with the other funds on hand, allowed the Board to legally go ahead with the work in hand and anticipate relief in the end from increased tax revenue. When the excavating was well under way, the extras began to appear. It was found that under the entire proposed south wall, was a rotten wood sewer. In order to be safe, it was determined to build the footing 12 inches deeper all around. This cost $600 extra to start with. Then came other extras which you who have erected any kind of building are familiar with. The state inspector’s order must be complied with, extra sewers must be laid, a cistern installed, fire doors put on, draining and ventilating the chemical laboratory was imperative at a cost of $404. Fixtures in the Banking room, laboratories, etc., added $1,050. Mixing dampers and other
The same of reserved seats for the commencement exercises of the Class of 1912, will open at Wagner’s Wednesday morning. The commencement will be held in the new auditorium of the Jefferson school. Delphos Herald, May 21, 1912 ---------More Jefferson School news Prof. Mendenhall, the retiring superintendent, tendered an acceptable gift to the school: a glass case with 50 stuffed birds, which have been used in the school for nature work. This collection is valued at more than $50 and was secured by Prof. Mendenhall from Ernest Seton, the noted natured writer of Wyndyghoul, Conn. Four bids were received for five cars of coal for the schools. The bid of Chas. Dienstberger for Pochontas run of mine at $3.05 per ton was accepted. Clerk Brundage was authorized to sell the stoves in the German Department school building. Delphos Herald, May 30, 1912 ---------Will Look For New School Furniture David Jettinghoff, Dr. W.E. Brundage, members of the Delphos school board, and Prof. L.E. Matteson, went to Chicago, where they will inspect high school furniture with a plan to purchase seats and other furniture for the various high school rooms. The work at the new school is nearing completion. All the walls on the first and second floors have been tinted and present a handsome appearance. The white coat of plastering is now being placed on the walls in the basement. These will not be tinted. The woodwork is about all completed and when the plastering white coat in the basement is finished, there will be little work left save the varnishing of the woodwork, placing of the electric lights in the basement, the hanging of some of the blackboards, etc. The concrete floors in the basement were completed last week. Practically all that will be left to do after this week will be the finishing touches. The auditorium of the new school now presents a more handsome appearance than ever, the tinting of the ornamental plastering at the stage and dressing rooms and varnishing of the wood work having been completed last week. Delphos Herald, June 18, 1912 ---------Some extensive repairs will be necessary at the Franklin street building before opening of school this fall. A committee was appointed to have the power to act in making the necessary improvements. Brundage, Steinle and Jettinghoff will look after the work.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
WASHINGTON — What a difference four years make. When Barack Obama was running for president, he successfully managed to distance himself from the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, leaving his Chicago church during the campaign and shrugging off suggestions that the preacher’s fiery rhetoric had any effect on him over the 20 years of their close friendship. How close? Wright inspired the title of Obama’s book “The Audacity of Hope.” He conducted the Obamas’ wedding ceremony and baptized the Obama girls. He led the family in prayer on the day Obama announced his candidacy for president. Four years later, the mere mention of Wright by political opponents is considered racist. Just ask Republican political strategist Fred Davis. Or his once-potential client, billionaire Joe Ricketts. Davis prepared a proposal for an ad campaign for Ricketts’ consideration titled “The Defeat of Barack Hussein Obama: The Ricketts Plan to End His Spending for Good” — and all hell broke loose. The proposal, which highlights the Obama-Wright relationship and resembles an ad rejected the last go-round by the McCain campaign, has made tsunami waves thanks to a story on The New York Times’ front page. Who leaked the 54-page
Faux-raging for a story
Point of View
proposal may be the most interesting aspect of this story, but we may die without knowing. Or we can watch closely the career paths of various actors in the next several months. The intent of the ads was to shine a light on how Obama’s character was formed and why he should not be re-elected. They were not a good idea, obviously, but they also were never ads. They were a proposal born of a sense among Republicans that Obama’s relationship to Wright was never sufficiently vetted. The question of Obama’s character pertains to his denial of the degree of that relationship, not that he found a father figure in Wright when he was still in his 20s. Nevertheless, to question Obama’s character based on his association with Wright at this point seems too much too late. Obama has a record as president and can be challenged on that record. Raising Wright now would have been a serious miscalculation and would have been interpreted as attempting
to inspire racial animus. But it is unfair to smear Davis as a racist, as some have suggested. He obviously created a proposal based on his sense that this would appeal to Ricketts, who said upon viewing the rejected McCain ad: “If the nation had seen that ad, they’d never have elected Barack Obama.” Davis, whose creativity is widely acknowledged, was obviously aware of the possible racial sensitivity, which is why he also hoped to include prominent African-Americans, such as radio host Larry Elder, questioning Obama’s character. Whites cannot do this without suffering the consequences now in play. From a strategist’s perspective, Wright is nearly irresistible. Colorful and outrageous, his views are the stuff of political operatives’ dreams. As he confirmed for an audience at the National Press Club in 2008, Wright believes, among many other headline writers’ delights, that the government created AIDS as a means of genocide, that U.S. Marines are like Roman Legionnaires, and that the terrorist attacks of 9/11 were merely chickens coming home to roost. If you’re a Fred Davis, ignoring such statements and the influential relationship of its speaker to the president of the United States would
be like ignoring unemployed Americans who long ago lost their jobs when Bain Capital rode into town. The leaking of the document and the prominent display of the story have been a boon to Obama. They provided yet another welcome distraction, as well as a helpful fundraising tool, and smeared Romney by association. The power (and hubris) of individual political donors and their offspring — the ads they want to sire — may become the tragedy of this election season. Romney is nothing like a racist, yet suddenly he is forced to distance himself from ads about which he knew nothing. And we now can agree that resurrecting Wright for any purpose would do more political harm than good. Ricketts apparently would agree. He has distanced himself from the proposal faster than Obama distanced himself from Wright. And poor Mitt Romney had to repudiate an ad campaign that never was, that probably never would have been, and over which he had zero control. And thus ends another faux controversy about non-ads in the very strange universe known as American Politics. Kathleen Parker’s email address is kathleenparker@ washpost.com.

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Fish Ohio CENTRAL OHIO Hoover Reservoir (Delaware/ Franklin counties) - White bass are the hot fish right now; try small spinners and jigs in Big Walnut Creek, north of the reservoir and at the “duck pond” in the southwest corner by the dam. Crappies are also active; they can be caught in 2-4 feet of water on jigs tipped with minnows or twister tails. This is an excellent lake to catch largemouth bass. May is the time to fish shoreline cover with tube baits, jig & pig and jerkbaits; look for spawning bluegill on beds in the backs of coves. There is a 10-HP motor limit at this reservoir. Indian Lake (Logan County) - Saugeyes are aggressive on windswept points and channel openings with current at this 5,040-acre lake; try casting or trolling small rattletraps and suspending crankbaits. Largemouth bass fishing is popular along the riprap areas, docks and islands; for bass in shallow, water try creature baits and tubes. Crappie and white bass fishing can both be good during May; minnows are the most popular choice for live bait. Channel catfish fishing should be picking up as the water warms. NORTHWEST OHIO Sandusky Bay (Erie/Sandusky counties) - As the water temperature warms, channel catfish should begin biting in the bay; try fishing the bottom with worms and shrimp. Two public fishing areas include the Division’s Willow Point Wildlife Area and the Sandusky Bay Bridge Fishing Access. Ferguson Reservoir (Allen County) - Crappies should still be biting at the 305-acre site; try the north bank near the boat ramp and the east bank with jigs and slip-bobbers with minnows and wax worms. Located on Reservoir Road on the east side of Lima, depths range from 3-33 feet. Boats are permitted and there is a primitive boat ramp available; no gasoline engines are allowed. Check out the Division’s webpage for a map and fishing forecast based on last year’s samplings. Maumee River (Lucas/Wood counties) Depending on the spring rains, white bass fishing should be excellent this time of year from Grand Rapids down to the city of Maumee; try minnows under slip-bobbers set at 4-6 feet. Jigs can also be casted. In Grand Rapids, focus on deeper holes near the dam area. Crappie should also be biting in the area; try next to structure in Turkeyfoot Creek and the canal areas. In Maumee, try fishing the Side Cut and Buttonwood Metro Parks areas. NORTHEAST OHIO Atwood Lake (Tuscarawas/Carroll counties) - As with many lakes across Northeast Ohio, crappie continue to bite well; fish near shore, targeting 6-foot depths with beetle spins or minnows 3 feet below a bobber to catch these tasty panfish. Anglers should note that a 9-inch minimum size limit is in effect for crappie here, with a 30-fish daily bag limit. Catfish have also been biting well, taking worms, creek chubs and cut bait fished on the bottom. The saugeye haven’t turned on yet, although a few anglers have done well drifting jigs or trolling crankbaits. Bass fishing has been weather-dependant, with anglers periodically taking good numbers with senko-style stick baits, jigs and spinnerbaits. Lake Milton (Mahoning County) The crappie bite remains strong here. Anglers fishing overpasses have been catching good numbers in 10 feet of water or less, fishing minnows under slip-bobber rigs. Periods of lower light associated with cloud cover and choppy water have also produced good walleye action; anglers have been targeting moderate depths with jig and crawler combinations, or trolling crankbaits. Catfish have been biting at the upstream end of the reservoir, especially for channel catfish, fishing live bait and shrimp, while anglers downstream have been catching numbers of white bass near shore by the dam using minnows under bobbers. SOUTHEAST OHIO Lake Snowden (Athens County) Anglers should have success catching bass using jig ‘n pig and spinner baits. Redear sunfish and bluegill are spawning and can be caught in shallow water less than 3 feet deep; use wax and meal worms and nightcrawlers fished under a bobber for both species over submerged brush and along weed beds. Wills Creek Reservoir (Coshocton County) - The tailwater area below the
dam provides some of the best fishing here. Saugeye concentrate just below the dam during high-volume water releases; try casting jigs and twister tails tipped with a minnow. Flathead catfish anywhere from 12-30 pounds can be reeled in below the dam and in the tailwaters in the late afternoon and evening; try nightcrawlers and chicken livers. SOUTHWEST OHIO Cowan Lake (Clinton County) - Crappie, between 9-14 inches, are being caught around brush piles with slip-bobber and minnows 12-18 inches deep within 20 feet off the bank. Acton Lake (Preble County) Crappie and saugeye are being caught; fish fallen timber on both shore lines. Try minnows or chartreuse and white for saugeye; the crappie are being taken on minnows under a float at about 12-20 inches deep. OHIO RIVER Bellville Pool Area - Shore anglers have been pulling in decent catches of catfish, drum and hybrid-striped bass on nightcrawlers and chicken livers off the bottom. Both shore and boat anglers have had success using crankbaits and spinners to catch black bass. Willow Island Tailwater Area There are plenty of fish to be caught right now on jigs and twister tails or jigs and minnows; white, pearl, chartreuse, orange or yellow are always popular colors among successful anglers. Hybrids and smallmouth bass have been caught using a variety of live bait, crankbaits and jigs. Anglers looking for catfish should try cut bait or chicken livers fished on the bottom. Riverbend to downtown area (Hamilton County) - Water levels are slightly high but anglers report channel cats off gravel humps in about 20 feet of water near channel drop-offs; fish depths from 15-30 feet and try cut skipjack and shad. LAKE ERIE Regulations to Remember: * The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is 6 fish per angler. The minimum size limit for walleye is 15 inches. * The daily bag limit for yellow perch is 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie. * The trout and salmon daily bag limit is now 5 fish per angler through Aug. 31. The minimum size limit for both is 12 inches. * It is illegal to possess black bass (largemouths and smallmouths) in Ohio waters of Lake Erie through June 29. The season re-opens on June 30 with a daily bag limit of 5 fish and a 14-inch minimum size limit. Western Basin Walleye fishing improved over the past week (week of 5/7/12). Trolling with crankbaits and worm harnesses from the outer buoys of the Camp Perry firing range to the east side of Kelleys Island has produced fish. Yellow perch fishing has been slow but fish have been caught on minnows off Marblehead, Kelleys Island and Vermilion. Central Basin Walleye have been caught off Cleveland at night at 10-15 feet using rapalas and husky jerks. During the day, anglers are fishing suspended in 42 feet and using crawler harnesses. Yellow perch fishing has been fair to average in 25 feet at the Gordon Park light on the east end of the Cleveland break wall, 37’ N-NW of Wildwood State Park, 28-40’ N of Mentor Lagoons and 43-47’ N of Ashtabula; perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most. Shore anglers are catching fish off the Cleveland Piers and at Headlands Beach Pier in Mentor out at the lighthouse, especially using spreaders with shiners during the mornings. Shore anglers are also catching rock bass off the piers. Smallmouth bass fishing has been very good in 15-25’ around harbor areas in Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula and Conneaut; use drop-shot rigs with rubber worms, soft-craws, leeches, tube jigs and crank baits. Anglers are also catching fish in the Grand River up to the Painesville dam using tube jigs and golden shiners. The water temperature is 60 degrees off of Toledo and 55 degrees off of Cleveland, according to the nearshore marine forecast. Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating.
Vikings down Jays in district baseball dandy
By JIM METCALFE
ELIDA — This one went into the “too-bad-someonehad-to-lose” category, one that every fan attending the game expected. It took an unearned run in the bottom of the sixth inning to give Leipsic a hard-fought 1-0 dandy over St. John’s in a Division IV District final on a beautiful Friday afternoon at Elida’s Ed Sandy Memorial Field. All three pitchers in this contest: Blue Jay junior Curtis Geise (5-5; 6 innings, 3 hits, 1 unearned run, 3 bases-onballs, 8 strikeouts; 98 pitches, 55 strikes) and Viking seniors Travis Schroeder (5 IPs, 3 hits, 1 BB, 1 K; 64 pitches, 40 strikes) and twin brother Trevor Schroeder (7-0; 2 IPs, 4 Ks; 24 pitches, 16 strikes); dominated the opposing lineup. With a scoreless draw entering the bottom of the sixth, the home Vikings got a leadoff liner by senior Nate Schey past senior first sacker Isaac Klausing. Travis Schroeder bunted him up a base. Junior Daniel DeLaRosa fouled out for the second out. Junior Austin Brown struck out on a pitch in the dirt that got away from senior Austin Reindel, far enough for Brown to reach first; on the play, a hustling Schey scored for the lone tally. “It was a tough way to lose a game. We made one mistake today and they took advantage of it,” St. John’s coach Dan Metzger said. “We had opportunities to capitalize on earlier in the game — they made two errors — but failed to do so. They also took away what we do best; our aggressiveness on the bases. They picked off our two best baserunners and those were big momentum plays.” Trevor Schroeder then struck out the side in the St. John’s seventh to end the contest. “We were fortunate enough to win this game. There weren’t many opportunities to score and we finally capitalized,” Leipsic coach Darren Henry explained. “We had lost to them the last two times to them in the tournament 3-2 and 2-0 and this was a big win for us. We were close both times.”
St. John’s senior catcher Austin Reindel tries to handle a throw at home as Leipsic senior Nate Schey barrels toward home in the bottom of the sixth Friday at Leipsic. Reindel couldn’t come up with it and Schey scored the only run of the game as the Vikings won 1-0. Senior Tanner Calvelage got aboard on an error to lead off the Blue Jay (19-7) first. Travis Schroeder made sure he would not steal, throwing over six times. The seventh time, he caught Calvelage leaning and picked him off. Travis Schroeder was plunked with one down in the Viking second and advanced on a passed ball, with Reindel suffering an apparent injury. However, he stayed in the game and Geise got the next two batters. In the Blue Jay third, junior Ryan Buescher got aboard via a throwing error. However, a fly ball, a foul-out and a popup kept him there. Leipsic had the first real threat, getting a leadoff liner to left center by junior Logan Haselman and an out later, after he was forced at second by a ground ball by junior Devin Mangas, Trevor Schroeder walked. However, they were both stranded, Geise got the Jays’ first hit to commence the fourth but he was also picked off by Travis Schroeder. Travis Schroeder was again plunked with one down in the home half of the fourth and stole second after a strikeout. However, he remained there. Senior Jordan Bergfeld walked with one down in the St. John’s fifth. With two down, senior Cody Kundert beat out an infield hit to sort and senior Ryan Densel bunted his way aboard to load the bases. However, they were left stranded. Leipsic again got a pair on in the Leipsic fifth with two down; back-to-back free passes to Mangas and Trevor Schroeder. However, they were stranded. Trevor Schroeder came on in relief in the St. John’s sixth and sent down the six batters he faced the next two frames. “Curtis was a warrior today. He really moved his pitches around, up and down, and changed speeds,” Metzger added. “He really showed his baseball smarts today. Their pitchers both did the same thing. You knew runs were going to be at a premium today with three great pitchers on their game. They made a couple of mistakes but they also made some outstanding defensive plays.” Henry echoed the same sentiments. “Their pitcher did a great job of taking a little something off his fast ball to keep us off-balance,” Henry

added. “So did Travis and Trevor. We preach pitching and defense and generally did both. I actually wasn’t going to start Travis today (at 7-0 coming into this game) after he started Wednesday but after practice yesterday and during warmups today, he convinced me he was ready to go. Plus, I had Trevor ready to go as well.” Leipsic (24-3) advances to the Patrick Henry Regional 2 p.m. Thursday to play the Ottawa Hills/Northwood victor.

MAJOR LEAGUE CAPSULES
The Associated Press Yankees 4, Reds 0 NEW YORK — Andy Pettitte pitched eight shutout innings for his first regularseason win since July 2010, leading the New York Yankees over the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 Friday night. Making his second major-league start since ending his 1-year retirement, the 39-year-old left-hander (1-1) limited the young, free-swinging Reds to four hits — all singles. With a fastball that reached 90 mph, an excellent cutter and a sharp curve, he struck out nine and walked one, throwing 78 of 115 pitches for strikes. Given a 1-0 lead on Alex Rodriguez’s RBI grounder in the fourth, Pettitte pitched well enough to make it stand up. Robinson Cano hit a solo homer off Bronson Arroyo (2-2) in the eighth and Raul Ibanez hit a 2-run drive, his eighth homer of the season. Pettitte had been 0-2 in five starts since winning at Seattle on July 8, 2010 — five days before he pitched in the All-Star game. After missing much of the second half because of a groin strain, he beat Minnesota in Game 2 of the AL division series. In his first start at Yankee Stadium on Sunday, Pettitte allowed four runs over 6 1/3 innings in a 6-2 loss to Seattle. Boone Logan pitched a perfect ninth, completing the 4-hitter as New York stopped a 3-game losing streak. Arroyo allowed four runs and nine hits in 7 2/3 innings. New York went ahead when Rodriguez slapped a grounder to shortstop off Arroyo — not the pitcher’s glove, as he infamously did near first base in Game 6 of the AL championship series against Boston. Cano doubled the lead with his fourth homer of the season, a drive into the right-field bleachers. New York again struggled with runners in scoring position. The Yankees were 0-for7 and are three for their last 48 (.063) with RISP. New York loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth on singles by Derek Jeter and Curtis Granderson followed by Cano’s walk. Rodriguez grounded to third, where Todd Frazier bobbled the ball before throwing home for the forceout — replays were unclear when catcher Ryan Hanigan was touching the plate. Ibanez grounded to first, with Joey Votto throwing home for another forceout, and Nick Swisher popped to center. Cincinnati, the first team since interleague play started in 1997 to play at the Mets and Yankees on consecutive days, got an early base-runner when Zack Cozart struck out leading off but the ball kicked off the glove of catcher Chris Stewart, who was catching Pettitte for the first time. Cozart wound up at second on the passed ball and a throwing error by Stewart, who wildly flung the ball well over first baseman Nick Swisher. Cozart took third on Drew Stubbs’ sacrifice but was stranded when Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips struck out. After allowing Hanigan’s leadoff single in the third, Pettitte struck out the side.

If his bruised and sprained right foot gives Nova trouble while warming up, the Yankees would turn to Freddy Garcia. Homer Bailey (1-3) starts for the Reds. Marlins 3, Indians 2 CLEVELAND — Carlos Zambrano pitched seven strong innings to help the Miami Marlins open interleague play by beating the Cleveland Indians 3-2 Friday night. Miami broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth on a sacrifice fly by Hanley Ramirez. All three Marlins runs were scored by batters who had started rallies with walks. Zambrano (2-2) gave up four hits and two runs as he continued a strong first season in Miami after 11 years with the Chicago Cubs. The right-hander has a 1.96 ERA in eight starts since being acquired in a January trade. Heath Bell worked the ninth for his fourth save in eight chances. Reliever Tony Sipp (0-2) took the loss as Cleveland had a 4-game winning streak broken. Marlins centerfielder Emilio Bonifacio left with a strained left thumb in the fifth inning. Indians starter Justin Masterson, aware that Bonifacio was 20-for-20 in steals this season, threw over to first base four times to

Bryan Petersen opened the Miami eighth with a walk off Sipp and was bunted to second by Jose Reyes. Right-hander Joe Smith came on and got Omar Infante to hit a bouncer back to him. Smith whirled and threw to second, trying to get Petersen, but the ball hit the runner and rolled into right field for an error, putting Marlins on first and third.

Jay Penske’s team finds engines for 2 cars WEEKLY YOUTH BB
By MICHAEL MAROT The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — Jay Penske risked his whole Indianapolis 500 race program on finding two new engines before qualifying began. The risk paid off for his team -- and race organizers. A deal will give Penske’s two drivers, Sebastien Bourdais and Katherine Legge, the dominant Chevrolet engines for the rest of the season and was a big step toward making sure the Indy 500 will start with its traditional 33-car field. Penske did it by ending his contentious relationship with Lotus, including dropping a $4.6 million lawsuit against the engine manufacturer. He was released from his contract with Lotus and got approval from IndyCar officials to make the switch. After a week of negotiating, it’s all done. “It was nice to see them push it out of the pit box and we all cheered when he was pulling out,” Legge said after Bourdais shook down her car during practice. “It was definitely a step in the right direction.” Penske did not provide additional details about the agreement. He said Chevy jumped in when it realized there may be a problem and helped the team get league approval to make the switch. The two engines, Penske added, arrived at his team garage overnight. But that leaves Penske with no backup engine or plan if something goes awry between now and when the track closes Sunday afternoon. It’s a gamble worth taking because Indy now has driver-car combinations on the track, enough to fill the traditional starting grid -- but no more -- for Sunday’s Bump Day. “We are pleased to see this issue resolved as we head into the final practice days in advance of qualifying,” IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard wrote in a statement. “I have to thank all parties for working together to help preserve the traditions of the Indianapolis 500.” Penske said the two sides had been close to an agreement for the past week, though final details weren’t worked out until late in the week. Most in Gasoline Alley thought Penske’s father, Roger Penske, would help him get something worked out with Chevrolet but the younger Penske revealed that never happened. The move also ends a frustrating week for Bourdais and Legge, who were relegated to studying tape and asking questions to prepare for IndyCar’s biggest race of the season. Penske’s garage was empty last week when the originally scheduled rookie orientation program began and stayed that way until crew members moved tire sets into the garage Sunday afternoon. On Tuesday evening, Legge’s No. 6 TrueCar entry and Bourdais’ No. 7 car moved in and by the next day crew members had covered the embroidered Lotus name and logo on their shirts with black tape. Series officials wanted Legge, a rookie, and Bourdais, who last drove at Indy in 2005, on the track before drivers get a boost of power for this weekend’s qualifying. Legge all second of the three phases of her rookie test after series officials kept the track open for an extra 45 minutes. She turned a fast lap of 212.796. Bourdais also made it onto turned 21 laps in his own car, with a fast lap of 214.715. “It’s been a rough ride this week,” said Bourdais, the 4-time Champ Car champion. “It was very complicated.” Lotus has been a distant third among IndyCar’s three engine manufacturers all season. Lotus officials have acknowledged they got a late start in testing the twin turbocharged engine, leaving them far behind Chevy and Honda. Last month, Lotus released Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and Bryan Herta Autosport from their contracts. Penske became the third team to ditch the engines after another sub-par showing at Brazil but Lotus wouldn’t initially let him out of the contract. Six days before the Brickyard opened for rookies and refresher programs, Penske filed suit against Lotus, claiming the company damaging his team’s reputation by spreading “especially outrageous” falsehoods about the IndyCar team while failing to deliver two chassis and hurting its ability to be competitive. Indy rookie Jean Alesi and Simona de Silvestro are the only two drivers attempting to qualify with a Lotus engine and they have consistently been the two slowest cars all week. Alesi, who made 201 career starts in Formula One, couldn’t even pass the final phase of his rookie test until series officials gave him a boost of 40-50 horsepower Monday. That allowed him to finally run sustained laps at 210 mph or more.
Franchitti. He’s had a front-row spot in three of his last four Indy starts and from 2005 until last year, Franchitti hadn’t finished worse than seventh on the 2.5-mile oval. There is plenty riding on this weekend’s qualifying and the May 27 race. A win would make the Scotsman only the second 3-time Indy winner from outside the U.S., joining Brazil’s Helio Castroneves. A win also would put Franchitti in a tie with Paul Tracy and Sebastien Bourdais for No. 7 on IndyCar’s career victory list with 31, the most of any active drivers, and, of course, it would also give his championship hopes a real boost. By winning a fourth straight crown, Franchitti would become only the second IndyCar driver in history to win five overall titles — breaking a tie with Mario Andretti and Bourdais. Only A.J. Foyt (seven) has won more. Honda is giving him some help. Last Friday, the only IndyCar manufacturer to use a single turbocharged engine this season won its case to add a new compressor cover — a move series officials say will create a more level playing field with what has been a Chevrolet dominated season. The cover was added at Brazil, where Franchitti had his seasonbest showing, and on Indy’s long, flat straightaways, the new design could really make a difference. Franchitti remains baffled by how the Chevys managed to get two more laps per fuel load in Brazil than he could — a touchy subject for a team that gambled on opposite fuel strategies in last year’s 500 and wound up losing both. Franchitti dropped from second to 12th on the final four laps, partly because of worn tires, while teammate Scott Dixon made a late pit stop to get extra fuel and wound up fifth. This season, Dixon, the 2008 Indy winner and a 2-time IndyCar champ, is sixth overall in the points and second among all Honda drivers behind only Simon Pagenaud. Things are moving in the right direction as Franchitti jumped from 12th on this week’s speed chart to eighth. Chevrolet to debut rear-wheeldrive SS next year DETROIT — For the first time in nearly two decades, the Chevrolet brand will have a big, rear-wheel-drive sedan in its U.S. lineup. General Motors Co. said Thursday that the 2014 Chevrolet SS will go on sale in limited numbers late next year. The V8-powered SS is a version of the Holden VF Commodore, a rear-wheeldrive sedan sold in Australia. It will be made in Australia. The new SS will be Chevrolet’s NASCAR Sprint Cup contender, replacing the Impala. It will debut in its race configuration at the 2013 Daytona 500. GM issued a photo of a camouflaged SS on a test track but otherwise released few details. Jacques Villeneuve to run 2 Nationwide races CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Penske Racing has hired Jacques Villeneuve to run the two road course races this season in the Nationwide Series. Villeneuve will drive the No. 22 Dodge at Road America in June and at Montreal in August. The Montreal course is named the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve after his late father. It’s the second straight year Villeneuve has been hired by Penske for the two races. The former Formula One world champion has 10 NASCAR starts over the past five seasons, seven of which were in the Nationwide Series. He was third at both tracks in 2010. Villeneuve is one of only three drivers to win the Indianapolis 500, the IndyCar championship and the F1 world title. Former Penske Racing drivers Mario Andretti and Emerson Fittipaldi were the other two.

The Herald — 7
Without the boost, Alesi posted a fast lap of 205.389 mph Wednesday -- more than 17 mph behind the day’s top speed of 222.785. De Silvestro’s best lap was 205.009. They were only slightly better Thursday. Alesi’s top speed was 207.489, while de Silvestro went 205.690. IndyCar officials say they’re “monitoring” the situation, seven months after 2-time Indy winner Dan Wheldon was killed in a horrific crash at Las Vegas.
Franchitti hoping Indy turns corner on slow start: Dario Franchitti just wins IndyCar championships. At least that’s been the case since he returned from NASCAR in 2009. But the combination of Honda’s new engine, Roger Penske’s dominance and some bad luck has Franchitti looking like anything but a champ in 2012. He’s 12th in the standings, trailing leader Will Power by 100 points after four races, and he will need a drastic turnaround just to get back in the title hunt. The good news is Franchitti will spend the next 11 days working at his favorite track, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with a more confident outlook. “In Brazil, I think we really turned the corner,” the 3-time defending points champ said during this week’s practice. “We were 1/100th of a second off the pole, we definitely felt good with the race performance in Brazil and how the car drove. But all that has no bearing on what happens in Indy.” Titles usually do. Five of the last seven Indy winners went on to win the season championship and since 2004 all but one IndyCar champ was also in the top 10 at Indy. Franchitti is the exception to both rules, finishing 12th last season at the 500 and seventh in 2009 before capturing the points title each time. And fortunately for Target Chip Ganassi Racing, few drivers know how to get around the Brickyard better than

The Herald – 9
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, MAY 20, 2012 In the year ahead, there is a strong possibility that you could establish one of the most significant relationships in your experience. Its benefits will spill over into numerous important areas of your life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There are indications that you’re entering a new earning cycle that looks to be quite good. The question now is: How well can you manage these additional funds? GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A new project is likely to fulfill your expectations, especially if a friend of yours who knows a lot about the matter at hand is there to help. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- There is a lot going on of which you might be unaware, and it could prove to be extremely helpful if you got wind of things. Follow all new leads you get. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Finally, you should be able to disengage yourself from an unproductive situation that has had you tethered for quite some time. Once done, move on to something worthwhile. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are entering a new cycle where you can establish some truly meaningful objectives. Don’t waste time on worthless activities -- do something significant. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Without overlooking your immediate needs, this is a good day to make some worthwhile, realistic plans, forging a positive link between now and your tomorrows. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- There are some major changes stirring that could prove to be of ultimate benefit for you down the line. When the wave hits, let it carry you along on its crest. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- For the next few weeks, you could be more fortunate than usual when it comes to partnership arrangements. Don’t hesitate to team up as often as possible. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Keep performing at your highest level, because rewards are in the offing for jobs well done. Even if you feel your efforts have gone unnoticed, they won’t be ignored now. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Due in part to two new relationships that you’re likely to establish, some important changes in your social life are about to take place. Be friendly to everyone. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Something disturbing from the past is about to be erased from your mind as your attention now shifts to new interests and developments. This is a good thing. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Plans you develop and put into action have very good chances of succeeding, provided you are doing them solely on your own and not depending on anybody else for help. MONDAY, MAY 21, 2012 Although there is a strong possibility for you to make unusually large material gains in the year ahead, there are always some caveats. One is that you must not spend your money as fast as you make it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -It behooves you to keep your cool if you start to feel like you’re running out of time regarding a matter that you’re anxious to finalize. If you blow your stack, you’re apt to create additional problems. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don’t let your temper flare if a thoughtless family member doesn’t respond as he or she should to a kind deed. Wait to discuss it only after you’re in a more tolerant mood. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There is no reason why you should yield to someone who wants you to loan him or her something that you treasure. If you succumb to this person’s pressure, you may be sorry. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It might be difficult for you to determine what is harassment on your part as opposed to simply aggressiveness. Know the difference, because others most assuredly will. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Although you might have to deal with someone who previously made a bad impression on you, continue to be your own sweet self. You might be surprised how nice he or she is today. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Someone you recently met and whom you like might resent it if she or he feels that you’re being possessive. There’s no way a friendship can develop if there are overly tight strings attached. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Keep your wits about you in all your one-on-one relationships. This is especially true when dealing with someone who is openly hostile or standoffish. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Even if your way of doing something is far better than others’ methods, don’t attempt to make people do things your way. Even if they’re openly fumbling, wait for others to ask for help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It’s not the smartest thing in the world to go out with a friend who’s a high roller, unless you can afford it. You could easily get caught up in his or her big-spending ways. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Avoid discussing any disagreements with your mate until you can do so privately. A public squabble could be embarrassing, and even invite some unwanted interference. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Just because a job is routine doesn’t mean it’ll be a cakewalk. If you don’t have your mind on what you’re doing, a serious gaffe could result. Be careful. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -It behooves you to closely monitor all matters that can adversely affect your resources if you’re not careful. Even a small leak could turn into a serious drain.
