Three arrested in Mendon home invasion
By ED GEBERT Times Bulletin Editor CELINA - Three persons have been arrested and face charges in connection with the Mendon home invasion robbery on Feb. 25. Joshua M. Moreo, 31, of Spencerville is being held in Allen County while alleged accomplices Patricia Ann Abrams, 32, Batavia, and Michael E. Davis, 30, Cincinnati, are also being held awaiting charges in the Mendon case. Abrams is being held in Mercer County while Davis is housed in the Clermont County Jail. Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey believes this incident is not related to the home-invasion double murder of Robert and Colleen Grube at their rural Fort Recovery home last November. No definitive answer has been given as to whether or not the Mendon suspects could also be charged in the home invasion at the home of Daniel Hemker near Middle Moreo Point. “ W e are looking into that,” Grey confirmed. “That is why Van Wert had a detective working with us from the time of their case. I talked to Sheriff Owens last [Tuesday] night, and we’ve talked several times throughout this investigation. At this point, they are still looking into everything we’ve gathered from this case and they’ll have to put it together with what they have and see if anything matches up.” After midnight on Feb. 25, police say the three suspects went to the Fair home to get money to buy drugs. Grey indicated Moreo knew of the Fairs and picked out the home to rob. He described the events of that night. “Abrams drove up from the Cincinnati area with Davis in the vehicle. They drove a 1997 Mercury Villager van, which we have recovered and have in our possession right now,” he declared. “They drove that vehicle from the Cincinnati area, picked up Moreo in this area and then they went to the Fair home. It wasn’t a random act. The Fairs were actually targeted by these people. When they got here from Cincinnati and picked up Moreo, they knew where they were going. They picked up Moreo in the Lima area and drove straight to that address.” According to Grey, Moreo knocked on the door and when Kathy Fair answered, he and Davis forced their way inside. Moreo was carrying a gun. The two tried to bind the victims’ hands with duct Abrams tape but the Fairs resisted enough to prevent them from doing so. Soon, Abrams came into the house with a knife to help with the robbery. After finding some cash, the three left the house, got in the vehicle and traveled south on Dutton Road. Grey noted that this group began with a pen-pal relationship between Moreo and Abrams when each was serving time in separate prisons. Davis was a friend of Abrams and came along on the trip. The case turned with the

A total of 260 tips came in via the sheriff’s office web site and phone tip line, as well as those who happened to make observations to law enforcement officers. The trio is now in custody. Abrams was arrested May 16 by Mercer County authorities in Clermont County. Moreo was arrested the same day after being found in Dillsborough, Ind. Davis was captured May 22 in Cincinnati. Abrams was the first to appear in a Mercer County courtroom Wednesday when she made an initial appearance and was ordered held on a $1 million cash bond. She is facing charges of aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, theft, complicity to commit aggravated burglary, complicity to commit aggravated robbery and complicity to commit See ARREST, page 11

Staff reports OTTAWA — The wife and daughter of a Cloverdale man who died at the scene of a car accident have filed a wrongful death suit in Putnam County. Al Smith is the attorney on the case and says Michael Feldman died as the direct result of a wreck caused by a driver who has been charged with but not convicted of drunk driving. The driver being sued is Dylan Brinkman of Delphos. The incident took place on Jan. 14 on State Route 114. According to reports, Brinkman left the scene and was later caught by Ohio State Highway Patrol and charged with driving under the influence and failure to stop after an accident involving injury to a person or property. He has pleaded not guilty and is to be tried Aug. 27 in the criminal matter in Putnam County. Feldman was watching TV at 2 a.m. in his home when the power went out. He could see the scene from his house and drove there. The attorney said Feldman stepped out of his vehicle and on to a live electrical wire and was electrocuted. The way the matter is written on paper, Lori and Faith Feldman are seeking $25,000 in damages but there is more to it than that. “The civil rules require you to plead it that way. Obviously, we’re seeking much more,” Smith said. When asked how much is being sought, Smith asked how much can be placed on a person’s life? “I haven’t had an economist complete an evaluation of his lifetime earnings loss, so those are all issues yet to be decided,” he said. While many people might respond as Feldman did on Mike Ford photo the morning of the accident, some may argue that Feldman Russ Bitters, Dan Hirn and Tim Missler transformed the commercial space on the made decisions and choices northeast corner of Second and Canal streets into two upscale apartments, with a third that played a role.

Brinkman earns superior at state science fair
BY STACY TAFF staff@delphosherald.com OTTOVILLE — When Ottoville seventh-grader Maizee Brinkman decided to enter the local science fair, she chose a project revolving around a personal complication. “I’ve been having problems with my eyes, so I wanted my project to be something to do with that,” she said. “I decided on the Stroop Effect test because I thought it was really interesting.” The Stroop Effect analyzes reaction times of subjects during certain tasks. Subjects read the names of colors written in corresponding shades of ink, then name the same set of words printed in different colors of ink, like “blue” printed in red.

“The Stroop Effect tests our cerebral processes and puts faster processes against slower ones. There have been tests done with male versus female and things like that but I decided to do one about age,” Brinkman said. “I tested 35 subjects between the ages of 6 and 40 and each test was different. My hypothesis was that it would be more difficult for the older subjects to complete the test than the younger.” Brinkman said her findings surprised her. “It was actually harder for younger subjects; they had the highest average reaction time,” she said. “It was easier for older subjects, who had the lowest average. Subjects between the ages of 16 and See FAIR, page 11

Local departments join for weekend effort
Information submitted VAN WERT — The Van Wert and Delphos Police departments and the Ohio State Highway Patrol teamed up last weekend to make a number of arrests and issue citations for drug and impaired driving offenses in the county. The program, tagged Operation Shield, resulted in five felony drug arrests, eleven impaired driving arrests, seven arrests for driving while under suspension, 14 misdemeanor drug arrests and several other criminal arrests. The operation was a two-day enforcement blitz intended to serve arrest warrants and remove illegal narcotics and impaired drivers from the roadways. Investigators served five felony warrants netting additional arrests for possession and trafficking in drugs also. Arrested on drug-related warrants were Emily Lacy, Shane Seekings and Taylor Agler (drug trafficking), Jason Vanover (heroin possession), and Jared Caldwell (heroin possession, marijuana trafficking). In all, Operation Shield Officers made a total of 301 traffic stops, writing 123 traffic citations, making 17 seat belt arrests, and issuing 139 warnings. The Highway Patrol’s mission is focused on “contributing to a safer Ohio.” In conjunction with that mission, the patrol has joined with area

OBITUARIES

Couple ran Ohio pill mill
COLUMBUS (AP) — A federal jury broke a deadlock and convicted a husband and wife of running an Ohio pill mill that illegally prescribed thousands of painkillers. The case in Cincinnati was among several brought in recent years to help stem what’s considered an epidemic of illegal painkiller distribution. It also illustrated the difficulty of such prosecutions, as the jury struggled with the case since beginning deliberations last Thursday. The jury acquitted Nancy and Lester Sadler of several charges but issued several guilty verdicts Tuesday. The panel acquitted a third person on trial altogether, employee Sandy Wells. The Sadlers were each convicted of operating Ohio Medical and Pain Management in Waverly as a continuing criminal enterprise, a charge carrying a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in prison and up to life in prison. The jury, which had to be ordered back to work by U.S. District Court Judge Sandra Beckwith after twice saying it was deadlocked, also convicted the couple of one count each of conspiracy and maintaining a premise for the purposes of distributing drugs. The jury also convicted Nancy Sadler of one count of wire fraud and one count of money laundering for the illegal purchase and sale of 40,200 units of hydrocodone in order to purchase a convertible. The couple was taken into custody after the verdict and Beckwith on Wednesday denied a request that they remain free until sentencing. Trial testimony revealed the clinic was open three or four days per week, charging new customers $180 for an initial visit and $125 to $150 for returning visits. Witnesses testified that customers received only a cursory check-up from a doctor. U.S. Attorney Carter Stewart said the defendants benefited financially on the backs of others’ misery. “Prescription drug diversion and the related crimes that accompany it are emerging

police departments in removing drugs and impaired drivers from area roadways. This joint effort helped to multiply the number of officers available to work and focus on illegal activities as well as aggressive and impaired driving. The additional officers included investigators, detectives, drug-sniffing dogs, and criminal patrol officers from the OSHP’s Findlay District and Van Wert Post working alongside and riding with police officers from the Van Wert Police Department and the Delphos Police Department. The agencies involved included officers from the OSHP’s Findlay District Headquarters, OSHP Criminal Patrol Team.

as an increasing threat to the region’s safety,” Stewart said. Lester Sadler’s attorney said his client was at best guilty of being an absentee clinic operator who was taken advantage of by an unscrupulous doctor and employees. “Mr. Sadler in my view did all he could to open and maintain a good decent medical clinic,” Richard Goldberg said Wednesday. “The government did not put on a single expert witness to say that this clinic was maintained improperly by medical standards.” Lester Sadler, 56, plans an appeal, Goldberg said. Attorneys for Nancy Sadler, 49, and Wells, 52, did not immediately return messages Wednesday. The 2010 indictment alleged clinic employees had orders to set up enough appointments to fill 30 to 40 prescriptions of powerful painkillers a day. The government said workers who met the quota would receive a week’s pay for three or four days’ work, while those who slipped up got less.

July 15, 1922-May 22, 2012 Marie A. Weaver, 89, of Delphos died at 12:54 p.m. Tuesday at Vancrest Healthcare Center. She was born July 15, 1922, in Delphos to John and Agnes (Flaherty) Halterlein.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Startup costs related to Ohio’s upcoming regulations for exotic animals are among new spending items in a wideranging midterm budget bill headed Wednesday to Gov. John Kasich for his expected signature. The bill was a rare reopening of Ohio’s multi-billion dollar budget in during the normal two-year budget cycle, an initiative pushed by Kasich in his second year as governor. The House and Senate approved final versions of the bill that was slowed in its final days by attempts to insert contentious language requiring welfare recipients to undergo drug testing. Republicans removed that mandate and said it would be pursued in separate legislation. The bill, which trims overall state spending by $13.5 million, changes state law to allow local governments to share certain services and includes altered or eliminated roles for various government boards and commissions. Kasich said in a statement he’s reviewing the bill but in general was pleased with the result. He could use the governor’s line-item veto because the bill spends state funds. “It’s been hard work and addressed a wide array of detailed and complex issues, but the end result is increased efficiency and increased common sense,” Kasich said. The bill includes $42 million for the Clean Ohio fund that preserves farmland and green spaces and another $3 million for a Lake Erie protection program. The measure also includes $15 million for cleaning up abandoned factory sites and $13 million to fund Kasich’s initiative that aims to ensure that all third-graders can read before moving on to the fourth grade. The $500,000 for exotic animal regulation and registration follows passage of a historic crackdown on ownership of such animals in Ohio that was spurred by a suicidal owner’s release of dozens of wild creatures last year. Kasich has expressed support for a pilot program tying welfare benefits to clean drug tests. Democrats criticized the idea as ineffective and unfairly targeting the poor.

St. Marys lake tested IHOP owner accused of running $1.3M scheme
TOLEDO (AP) — The operator of six IHOP restaurants in Ohio and one in Indiana organized a scheme with the help of some employees to hide profits from IHOP’s parent company, federal investigators said Wednesday. The plan involved hiring illegal immigrants, manipulating sales figures and underreporting wages in order to avoid paying taxes along with royalties to the corporation, investigators said in an indictment. In all, 18 people were taken into custody Wednesday in a scheme that led to losses of more than $3 million, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. Tarek Elkafrawi, who owned or operated six IHOP restaurants in northwest Ohio and one in Evansville, Ind., was accused of money laundering, mail fraud and identiBy JULIE CARR SMYTH Associated Press ty theft. He’s also accused of hiring illegal immigrants who used fake or stolen identities. His attorney, Richard Kerger, said that Elkafrawi has been aware of the investigation for months and had met with the government. “We will respond accordingly,” he said. The FBI raided the seven IHOP restaurants last September. Federal authorities carried away boxes of documents, but would not say at the time what led to the searches. Elkafrawi and others were able to generate $1.2 million in unreported income by manipulating wages and underreporting income of illegal immigrants, according to the indictment. He employed about 200 illegal immigrants to work at his restaurants after he and others arranged for other people to supply the workers, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. The workers were not paid overtime, and managers cashed pay checks for them, allowing the restaurants to underreport their income and reduce payments to the state for workers compensation, the government said. Investigators also said Elkafrawi and another man, who was not charged, arranged for someone else to burn down their IHOP restaurant in Findlay in 2008, and that Elkafrawi made a $1.3 million fraudulent insurance claim. Tanya Valenzuela, a spokeswoman for IHOP’s parent company, DineEquity Inc., based in Glendale, Calif., said the allegations run counter to the company’s employment practice and values. The company has been cooperating with the authorities, she said. ST. MARYS (AP) — The state is awaiting water quality test results to determine whether it needs to post additional advisories about potential hazards at Ohio’s largest inland lake, which has been plagued by toxic algae in recent years. Blue-green algae have hampered tourism near Grand Lake St. Marys in western Ohio. Algae growth was accelerated this year because

of unseasonably warm winter and spring weather. The algae blooms previously led to lake closures and swimming advisories because they can produce a nerve toxin that can sicken people. A spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources said water quality testing will help determine whether advisories or extra signage are necessary as summer kicks off.

Sparks fly over Ohio energy trade secrets measure
COLUMBUS — Environmental advocates in Ohio opposed a newly added energy-bill provision Wednesday that they say would make it virtually untenable for drilling opponents to sue energy companies for withholding chemical trade secrets. The bill, including the provision, cleared the House committee Wednesday and will likely be passed by the full House today. But House changes will have to be cleared by the Senate. Natural Resources Director Jim Zehringer said the overall bill will have a positive impact on the environment. “We’ve really stiffened a lot of our regulations, and I think we’ve made them better and safer,” he said. Under the contested provision, those eligible to sue companies that withhold chemical trade secrets would include property owners, adjacent neighbors, and any person or state agency “having an interest that is or may be adversely affected” by the chemical protected as a trade secret. As environmental lawyers see it, the new language requires a person to prove they’ve been somehow hurt by the chemical in question before they know what the substance is in order to sue. But oil and gas industry argues some parameters must be set for trade secret challenges or frivolous lawsuits will abound. The issue arises amid Ohio’s comprehensive overhaul of its energy laws to account for the burgeoning oil and gas drilling industry, to adjust the state’s clean energy standard and to make dozens of other changes. Other states in the Eastern U.S. also are negotiating legislation to govern drilling in the Marcellus and Utica shale deposits. Jack Shaner of the Ohio Environmental Council said the provision establishing who has standing to sue over trade secrets would make it virtually impossible for most Ohioans to file legal action. The council had been neutral on the energy bill until the provision was tucked into it. “Sadly, what started out as one of possibly the most ambitious chemical disclosure laws in the country has now turned into one of the most radical and anti-public rightto-know laws in the nation,” Shaner said. The Sierra Club also shifted from neutral to opposed

because of the provision. Some energy interests lined up to fight for restrictions on trade-secret lawsuits, but Assistant Director Fred Shimp of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources said the agency pushed to include property owners and adjacent neighbors as groups eligible to sue. “The administration thought what was being proposed was too restrictive. We wanted to open it up,” Shimp said. “We were the ones who fought for and got this amendment, saying if you’re a property owner or an adjacent property owner, you automatically have legal standing to go to a court and say I want to challenge the validity of this claimed trade secret.” Criticism of the provision follows an Ohio House committee vote to address some of the environmentalists’ earlier concerns by clarifying that doctors given new access to drillers’ proprietary chemical recipes can share that information with public health officials.

“Responsibility educates.” — Wendell Phillips, American abolitionist (1811-1884)

Secret Service full of bad boys, Senate finds out
By LAURIE KELLMAN and CALVIN WOODWARD Associated Press WASHINGTON — Senators investigating the Secret Service prostitution scandal said Wednesday that dozens of reported episodes of misconduct by agents point to a culture of carousing in the agency and urged Director Mark Sullivan to get past his insistence that the romp in Cartagena was a one-time mistake. The disconnect between the senators and Sullivan reappeared again and again throughout the two-hour hearing, even as the Secret Service chief for the first time apologized for the incident that tarnished the elite presidential protection force. By the end, Sullivan’s job appeared secure even as new details emerged that left little doubt, senators said, that a pattern of sexual misbehavior had taken root in the agency. “He kept saying over and over again that he basically does think this was an isolated incident and I don’t think he has any basis for that conclusion,” said Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, the senior Republican on the Homeland Security panel that heard Sullivan’s first public accounting of the episode. “For the good of the Secret Service,” added Sen. Joe By DONNA CASSATA Associated Press Lieberman of Connecticut, the panel chairman, “he’s got to assume that what happened in Cartagena was not an isolated incident or else it will happen again.” Still, Sullivan insisted repeatedly that in his 29-year Secret Service career he had never heard anyone say that misconduct was condoned, implicitly or otherwise. “I just do not think that this is something that is systemic within this organization,” Sullivan said. The misconduct became public after a dispute over payment between a Secret Service agent and a prostitute at a Cartagena hotel on April 12. The Secret Service was in the Colombian coastal resort for a Latin American summit before Obama’s arrival. Twelve employees were implicated, eight of them ousted, three cleared of serious misconduct and one is being stripped of his security clearance. Sullivan said two who initially resigned now are fighting for their jobs back. “These individuals did some really dumb things,” Sullivan told the Senate panel. “I’m hoping I can convince you that it isn’t a cultural issue.” He didn’t make much progress on that front, as senators offered fresh evidence of what they considered reckless behavior. Lieberman said 64 allegations or complaints of sexual misconduct were

Clinton, military leaders want treaty
WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and military leaders implored conservative Republicans on Wednesday to approve a long-spurned high seas treaty, saying it would create jobs, open a new path to oil, gas and other resources and bolster national security. Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made a rare joint appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to make the case for the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea. The United States is the only major nation that has refused to sign the treaty, which was concluded in 1982 and been in force since 1994. But the committee chairman announced at the start of the hearing that he would not push for a Senate vote before the November elections. Still, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., insisted approval of the treaty is necessary because the United States “has lived by the rules, but we don’t shape the rules.” Since the Reagan administration, the U.S. has abided by By SAM HANANEL Associated Press the rules of the treaty, which is endorsed by 161 countries and the European Union. Clinton and the military leaders said it was now time for the U.S. to grab a seat at the table in international negotiations on navigational rights and seabed mining. “One hundred and sixty nations have acceded to it, and we say, ‘To hell with them, we’re not going to participate in that,”’ Panetta said. “Then 160 nations are going to determine what happens” and the U.S. is on the sidelines. He said the United States repeatedly insists that Iran and North Korea follow international rules. Failing to approve the sea treaty, Panetta said, undermines U.S. authority. Conservative and tea party Republicans say the treaty undercuts U.S. sovereignty, force a redistribution of wealth and stand in for the Kyoto Protocol on climate change that allows foreign countries to regulate U.S. energy. Clinton dismissed the opposition as misguided. “I am well aware that this treaty does have determined opposition, limited but nevertheless quite vociferous,” she said. “And it’s unfortunate because its opposition based in

made against Secret Service employees in the last five years. Three of those, Lieberman said, were complaints of inappropriate relationships with a foreign national and one of “nonconsensual intercourse,” on which he didn’t have enough information to elaborate. Sullivan said that complaint was investigated by outside law enforcement officers, who decided not to prosecute. Thirty other cases involved alcohol, Lieberman said, almost all relating to driving under the influence. Sullivan also told the committee an agent was fired in a 2008 Washington prostitution episode, after trying to hire an uncover police officer. Charles Edwards, the inspector general at the Homeland Security Department conducting his own probe, and Sullivan discussed an episode from the 2002 Olympics when at least three agents were caught in a rowdy, drunken party in the agents’ hotel rooms with college-age women under 21, the legal drinking age. They were accused of plying the women with alcohol, and two were accused of but not charged with sexual misconduct. One agent was charged with disorderly conduct. The agents involved left the Secret Service, Edwards and Sullivan said.

Gov’t taking new steps to combat food stamp fraud
WASHINGTON — Food stamp recipients are ripping off the government for millions of dollars by illegally selling their benefit cards for cash — sometimes even in the open, on eBay or Craigslist — and then asking the government for replacement cards. The Agriculture Department wants to curb the practice by giving states more power to investigate people who repeatedly claim to lose their benefit cards. It is proposing new rules Thursday that would allow states to demand formal explanations from people who seek replacement cards more than three times a year. Those who don’t comply can be denied further cards. “Up to this point, the state’s hands have been tied unless they absolutely suspected fraudulent activity,” said Kevin Concannon, the department’s undersecretary for food, nutrition and consumer services. Overall, food stamp fraud costs taxpayers about $750 million a year, or 1 percent of the $75 billion program that makes up the bulk of the department’s total budget for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Most fraud occurs when unscrupulous retailers allow customers to turn in their benefits cards for lesser amounts of cash. But USDA officials are also concerned about people selling or trading cards in the open market, including through websites. Last year, the department sent letters urging eBay and Craigslist to notify customers it’s illegal to buy and sell food stamps. USDA officials followed up last month, saying they are still getting complaints of people using the websites to illegally market food stamps. Both eBay and Craigslist have told the government they are actively reviewing their sites for illegal activity and take down ads offering food stamp benefits for cash. South Dakota, Oklahoma, Washington, D.C., Minnesota and Washington state have the highest percentage of recipients seeking four or more replacement cards a year. But USDA officials said that doesn’t necessarily indicate a high rate of fraud. All states are required by law to reissue lost or stolen cards to those who are eligible for benefits. Wyoming, Idaho, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Alabama have the lowest percentage of households requesting four or more cards in a 12-month period. In North Carolina, the state already issues warning letters to people who request four replacement cards in a year, letting them know that officials are monitoring them

ideology and mythology, not in facts, evidence or the consequences of our continuing failure to accede to the treaty.” She suggested opponents who are wary of any U.N.based treaty are expressing unfounded fears. “That means the black helicopters are on their way,” Clinton said. Her comments made several committee Republicans bristle. “I am one of the people who has concerns with this treaty, and I assure you that my concerns are rooted in something more than mythology. ...They are rooted first and foremost in America’s national sovereignty, and I think that is not something that is to be discounted here,” Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said. The treaty establishes a system for resolving disputes in international waters and recognizes sovereign rights over a country’s continental shelf out to 200 nautical miles and beyond if the country can provide evidence to substantiate its claims. Clinton said U.S. oil and natural gas companies have the technology to explore the extended continental shelf, which could be more than 1 1/2 times the size of Texas and rich in resources. closely. Dean Simpson, chief of economic family services for the North Carolina Division of Social Services, said the new rules would give her state even more of a boost in curbing food stamp fraud. “I think it would help with the trafficking and let individuals know they are being observed and watched,” said Simpson, who oversees the state’s distribution of food stamps. More than 46 million people receive food stamps, nearly half of them children. The average monthly benefit is $132 per person. Benefit cards work like debit cards, allowing users to swipe them for food purchases at some 231,000 stores around the country that are authorized to take part in the food stamp program. Once a card is reported lost or stolen, it can be disabled immediately. But USDA does not require photo identification, since several members of a family, including children, may use the cards at different times. Concannon stressed that the USDA wants to be sensitive to vulnerable people who may lose their cards for innocent reasons. While it may sound suspicious for someone to lose a card two or three times a year, food stamp recipients include many people who are homeless or have dementia or mental illness, he said.

TROY — Jefferson senior Kennedy Boggs punched her ticket to the Division III State Track and Field Championships with a 5-3 jump in the Troy Regionals Wednesday night. Her second-place finish was the top area finisher in the finals of the girls high jump. Ottoville sophomore Tonya Kaufman ended up fourth to move on but St. John’s junior Alyssa Faurot ended up tied for seventh and finished her campaign. “I really wanted this. This has been a goal for me throughout high school,” Boggs noted. “For me, it’s a matter of keeping myself positive; I can struggle with that at times but my coaches,

We’ve added about there feet each to our throws from the beginning of the season until now and part of that is working together,” Wannamacher added. “We’ve definitely scaled back the number of throws we’ll do in a practice from about 40-50 during the week to about six a practice now. The goal is to stay fresh and loose and hope we can get a little better this week.” They both agreed that making it to state again — both clinched a berth last spring — will be a little easier this time. “Last year, we were just so glad to be here; it was more a fun experience than anything,” they concurred. “Plus, the atmosphere — this is the biggest meet of the year, the crowd and everything else —

Grove track sends 5 to state Wednesday
By Charlie Warnimont Delphos Herald Correspondent TIFFIN – Field events have been a staple of the Columbus Grove track teams this season. At the Division III regional in Tiffin Wednesday evening, the Bulldogs field events took center stage again. Columbus Grove had five athletes qualify for state Wednesday in four different field events. The five athletes that advanced to state were Tyler Wolfe and Collin Grothaus, pole vault; Caleb Grothaus, long jump; Dakota Vogt, discus; and Riley Eversole, high jump. The Division III state competition for field events will be in the afternoon June 1 at Jesse Owens Stadium. Eversole, a senior, walked away from Frost-Kalnow Stadium Wednesday with a district championship medal around her neck after an outstanding day in the high jump. Eversole set a personal record of 5-5 in winning the event as she out jumped Northwest Conference rival Lydia Guagenti, a Bluffton senior, for the win. Guagenti took second place having cleared 5-4. Prior to jumping 5-5, Eversole’s previous best jump this season was 5-2. “My coach just told me to relax because I jump my best when I am relaxed,” Eversole said. “I just tried not to think about it and let it happen and I ended up with a personal record and winning.” It also helped Eversole that after she cleared 5-2 there were only four competitors left so she didn’t have to worry about having to keep making heights to stay alive in the competition to make her second trip to Columbus. Eversole competed in the high jump at state as a sophomore. Wolfe and Collin Grothaus had the same advantage as Eversole as they knew they were headed to state after clearing 13-8. The only thing left to decide was how high each vaulter would go and their final placement. Wolfe, a senior and the

can get to you. This year, we’ll be more relaxed.” In the boys discus, Spencerville junior Lucas Shumate was third (151-2) and Ottoville senior Greg Rue was fourth (150-0). “I have thrown 151, so that was close to my personal best. It’s good to know I can throw a little farther, which I’ll need to do this week,” Rue said. “Last week, I only threw 1472; the ring was as slick as last week at District. It’s a lot easier when you can just let it go. I’m excited to get to state but I won’t change my routine. I get to bed early, get Ottoville junior Tammy Wannamacher prepares to up early and then lift weights, throw Wednesday as she finished fourth in the shot. as well as later doing some throws.

Old Fort senior Nathan Alexander won the pole vault, after clearing 15-0, based on fewer misses. Alexander cleared 15-0 on his second attempt, while Wolfe needed all three attempts. Wolfe and Alexander both attempted to break the meet record of 15-8, but both missed all three attempts at that height. Wolfe said the number of vaults he took Wednesday in the warm temperatures affected him at the meet. “It’s great to be going back to state and defending my title,” Wolfe said. “I think See GROVE, page 7

I want the chance to compete right away but I know I will have to work to do so.” His coach at St. John’s, Dr. Jay DeWitt, praised his soon-to-be ex-performer. “He’s a guy I could depend on in whatever event I put him in. I think I could have put him in any event — even a distance run — and he’d have done well and given me his best,” DeWitt said. “He was a 4-year letterwinner. He took to the pole vault early and worked at it. I’d like to take credit

DELPHOS — St. John’s senior Chris Will wanted a place close to home and that was known for its academics when he was deciding where to continue his track and field career at the next level. Ohio Northern University — with its solid reputation in the classroom, as well as on the field — was a perfect fit for him as he signed a national letter-of-intent to become a Polar Bear. “It was close to home and it’s a good school for academics. I want to study biology and it’s got a good program; I wanted a good mix of both,” Will explained. “The only other school that I really considered in the end was Ohio Wesleyan. I like the school and the atmosphere around the track and field team; they like to com-

St. John’s senior Chris Will, seated middle, will continue his track and field career at Ohio Northern University. With him are his parents, Bob and Sue Will (seated), and his coach at St. John’s, Dr. Jay DeWitt (standing). for that but Coach (Tim) Metzner does a great job with all our vaulters. He’s got a lot going for him. “I haven’t had many track guys go on to college track in my years here as a head coach; usually they go on to play football, so this is a great accomplishment for Chris and a nice occurrence for the program here.”

Wouldn’t it be fun to take their place for a day?
Wouldn’t JIM METCALFE you like to be a man or woman like Colin Cowherd, Skip Bayless, Steven A. Smith, jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com Michelle Beadle (of “Sports Nation”; it’s sad she is leaving ESPN), “Mike and Mike In the Morning” or the like on television programs like ESPN’s “First Take”, “Pardon the Interruption” and others? You get PAID to argue? Where do I sign up?! You can argue about whether any of these guys really know what they’re talking about — I know Cowherd in particular really gets fans of the Ohio State Buckeyes in particular and the Big Ten generally ready to throw their TV sets out the window whenever he talks about them and Bayless can sometimes do the same — but that’s the fun part of the world of sports. Since we don’t publish on Tuesday’s anymore, I have gotten more of a chance to watch First Take with Bayless, Smith, host Jay Crawford and multiple personalities from the world of sports. I am familiar with guys like ex-NBA baller Tim Legler, soon-to-be NFL Hall-of-Famer Cris Carter (or should be), coach Eric “Mangenius” Mangini, former NFLer Mike Golic and the like. I am not so familiar with other people they have on the show but I like to hear their opinions. I might think they are lunatics at first (or spot on) but it gives me a different perspective and makes me wonder about what do I really think about a certain situation in the world of sports. For example, Bayless — because he had lost a bet or something — had to spend the whole show Wednesday — 2 hours! — and not say the name “Tim Tebow.” Everyone else could. Of course, he failed in this task and uttered the “word” seven times. They literally put a piece of duct tape over his mouth. For those of you who might not know about the reason behind this, Bayless is a huge — HUGE — Tebow fan, while the vast majority of other personalities think he’s a relative bum. I have defended Tebow here numerous times — if he cannot play in the NFL as a quarterback, why were people so afraid of him when the Broncos signed Peyton Manning, figuring he had to be traded, or when he went to the Jets to battle with Mark Sanchez? He has shown a willingness to work hard and try to learn how to correct his mistakes in form and such. Anyway, these men and women can have their opinion and sometimes it can get heated but generally, it’s all in fun. Plus, there’s no real “answer.” Just like in “real life” — people have strong opinions on their sports, their teams, the players, coaches, etc., but normally, it doesn’t come to blows. The only difference is we don’t make money!

(Continued from Page 6) I got tired today taking to many vaults. Next week, I need to clear the heights on my first attempt and save myself for the end. I liked the competition today, it really helps me. When Collin started going 15 feet that was good competition for me and helps me get better.” While Wolfe is making a return trip to state, Grothaus was competing to make his first trip to state after just missing last season. Once he knew he was going to state, it was a big relief for him. “It feels awesome to get down there this year,” Grothaus said. “I came up short last year and went down and watched Tyler, it was such a great experience. It’s just awesome to get down there and vault with him (Tyler). I didn’t have my best day but when the one vaulter missed, I knew I was going based on fewer misses because we had been competing against each other all day.” Caleb Grothaus punched his ticker to state in the long jump. Grothaus finished third with a jump of 21-7 ¾, which not only was the third-best effort of the day but broke the school record in that event. Grothaus said he had been going after the record all season, but just kept coming up short in his pursuit. “I’ve been working real hard this year,” Caleb said. “With my dad being the coach it can be tough but he has really pushed me and got me to where I wanted to be. I’ve come so close at every meet to the record, it was a goal of mine all year to break it.” At this time last season, Vogt was watching two other Bulldog throwers compete at the regional. But after they graduated, Vogt earned the starting job and now will get his chance to throw at state. “It feels real good to

be going as this is my first regional meet,” Vogt said. “I learned a bunch from the guys last year and they come back when they can. They are really supportive of us.” Wednesday, Vogt was locked in a battle with Vanlue junior Zach Garber. Garber had the lead going to the finals but Vogt was able to take it away from him with a throw of 159, his best ever. Garber eventually won the event with a throw of 159-11 on his last throw of the meet. “I had a personal record today. Our coaches are helping us a lot and I am getting better with my form each week. It’s helping a lot and I have one more meet,” Vogt said. Vogt will have a chance to add a second event to his state resume Friday when he competes in the high jump. The Bulldogs 3,200 Relay came up short in their bid to make state as they finished seventh in 8:27.66. Running this for the Bulldogs were Wade Heffner, Alex Shafer, Jake Graham and Colton Grothaus. Grove’s 400 Relay team of Wolfe, Caleb Grothaus, Collin Grothaus and Derek Rieman just missed making the finals as they were ninth in the prelims with a time of 44.99. Rieman advanced to both hurdle finals as he was fifth in the 110’s (15.61) and fifth in the 300 hurdles (40.83). The Lady Bulldogs 800 Relay team of Brooke Brubaker, Sydney McCluer, Eversole and Nicole Langhals failed to the make the finals after running a 1:50.41. The 400 Relay team of McCluer, Langhals, Jessi Smith and Brubaker were 13th after the prelims with a time of 52.87. Danielle Schramm didn’t make the shot put finals as her best throw was a 32-5. The regional meet resumes Friday at 4 p.m.

Exotic animal bill heads to Kasich
BY ANN SANNER The Associated Press COLUMBUS — Legislation that would tighten regulations on owning exotic animals in Ohio was headed Tuesday to the governor for his expected signature, months after authorities were forced to shoot dozens of lions, tigers and other dangerous wildlife released from a farm last fall. The measure would ban new ownership of exotic animals, while allowing current owners to keep their creatures by obtaining a new state-issued permit by 2014 and adhering to strict new caretaking standards. Facilities accredited by some national zoo groups would be exempt from the bill, along with sanctuaries and research institutions. Ohio’s restrictions on exotic pets are among the nation’s weakest. Efforts to strengthen the law took on new urgency after Terry Thompson released 50 animals — including black bears, mountain lions and Bengal tigers — from his eastern Ohio farm in Zanesville in October before he committed suicide. Authorities killed 48 of the animals as a public safety measure. Two others were believed to have been eaten by other animals. The Ohio House passed the measure 87-9 with changes on Tuesday, and the Senate agreed to the revisions, which included lower permit fees and a lower minimum insurance requirement than the version senators passed last month. State Rep. Brian Hill, a Zanesville Republican, said the exotic animal release in his hometown showed it was “essential” for the state to have proper regulations. “The bill before us today sets standards in place for people to effectively care for these animals, while at the same time protecting the public,” Hill said. Permit fees for bears, tigers and other dangerous animals would begin at $250. And insurance policies for the creatures could range from $200,000 to as high as $1 million, depending on the number of animals. Owners would be required to pass a background check and show inspectors that they adhere to care standards and have taken safety measures such as fencing their property. Signs would have to be posted on the property to alert people there were dangerous animals on the premises. The House changes would exempt several types of small primates, including lemurs, from permit fees and certain restrictions. Owners would still have to register the animals, however. Ohio officials aren’t sure exactly how many wild animals or owners the bill would affect. The state’s agriculture

director has told lawmakers the proposed permit fee structure might not cover the cost of the instituting the new regulations. The bill cleared the Legislature after hours of testimony from distraught owners who had lined up in hearings to express concerns about having to get rid of the family pet or pay too high of a price to keep it, among other issues. The Columbus Zoo and the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation are among the measure’s supporters. Ohio Gov. John Kasich recalled the animal release in a statement Tuesday, saying that it was fortunate that the public and law enforcement officers weren’t harmed. “Next time we might not be so lucky, however, which is why I committed to doing everything we can to prevent a ‘next time,’” Kasich said, adding that he would sign the bill.

Barrier failure raises Asian carp worries
The Associated Press For 13 minutes on May 2, the electricity that energizes an electric barrier protecting Lake Erie from the voracious Asian carp living in the Mississippi River system went dead. Now, a group of Great Lakes congressmen want to know if it can happen again. U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D., Toledo) has sent a letter signed by her and 29 fellow lawmakers to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers requesting a detailed report on what went wrong. “As things stand, the barrier is our strongest line of defense against an invasion of Asian carp into Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes ecosystem,” Miss Kaptur said. “We need to know why the barrier and backup system failed and what corrective measures the corps has taken since the failure.” The letter to Jo-Ellen Darcy, assistant secretary of the Army for civil works, said the brief failure of the barriers points up the danger of “shortterm” solutions. Lt. Col. James Schreiner, deputy commander of the Army Corps of Engineers’ Chicago district, said two of three barriers were operating at the time and both failed. Backup generators were activated, but a power surge prevented them from immediately delivering electricity to the barriers. He said the Corps has fixed the problem and is working to make sure it doesn’t recur. He does not believe any Asian carp snuck through because researchers are confident that the leading edge of the Asian carp species is at least 18 miles upstream, at the Dresden Pool. Researchers have tagged and monitored 182 fish in the Dresden Pool, including 18 Asian carp, and none of the Asian carp has been detected downstream from it. “We’re confident there was no passage,” Colonel Schreiner said. The three barriers in the man-made Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal deliver pulses of electricity that discourage fish from trying to swim near the barrier and stun any that get close. The barriers are about 37 miles by water from Lake Michigan.

How Phillip Phillips won ‘American Idol’
By DERRIK J. LANG The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — From the moment he first stepped in front of the judges and unleashed a folksy take on Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” guitar-playing crooner Phillip Phillips seemed preordained to win “American Idol,” and not just because he’s another white guy with a guitar, the all-too-familiar profile of the previous four “Idol” champions. “I’m just lucky,” the former pawn shop worker said Wednesday night in his backstage dressing room after his win. It was more than just luck that helped Phillips easily overcome 16-year-old mini-diva Jessica Sanchez to become the Fox talent competition’s 11th season victor. The combination of his goofy personality, ahshucks Southern humility, rebelliousness, risk-taking originality and, yes, those good looks kept him at the front of the pack all season long. While he is indeed a WGWG — the “Idol” fan term for “white guys with guitars” — Phillips differentiated himself with a musical style that was grittier than past winners David Cook, Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze and Scotty McCreery, as well his competitors with much wider vocal ranges, like gospel singer Joshua Ledet and soaring vocalist Hollie Cavanagh. Mostly, Phillips was just so darn charming. When given the opportunity, he always excelled at genuinely letting his personality shine through on the show, often as much of a challenge as hitting the right notes. He established a silly bromance with finalist Heejun Han and seemed downright distraught at the unexpected dismissal of alt-rocker Colten Dixon. Despite Sanchez’s unstoppable voice and a savvybeyond-her-years approach, she was essentially living on borrowed time after she was supposed to be eliminated but was saved by the judges. She realized that during Top Three week. “I told Phillip, ‘You’re gonna win this whole thing,’ and he was like, ‘Nah, I’m not,”’ recalled Sanchez backstage. “I’m like, ‘Yes, you are.’ I don’t think he totally believed that, and I totally believed it. I just went out in this competition after that moment and just sang. Phillip’s gonna win, anyway. I might as well just sing my heart out.” The total votes for each singer weren’t released, but it was likely a landslide for Phillips, who accomplished his feat despite serious kidney problems that plagued him all season. Several online outfits predicted he would take home the top prize: the “Idol” title and a record contract. DialIdol.com, which tracks busy signals on the phone lines dedicated to each contestant, correctly projected Phillips as the winner Wednesday morning. The Leesburg, Ga., native never appeared at the bottom of the pack, a testament not only to his die-hard fan base that kept him safe but also to some of his more talkedabout performances. Like the time he turned Usher’s “U Got It Bad” into an acoustic ditty or unleashed a flawless take on the obscure — for “Idol,” anyway — Damien Rice tune “Volcano.” “I’m excited to do my album,” said Phillips. “I know it’s going to be challenging because a lot of opinions will be coming my way, but it’s like the show, I know my music. I know how I want it. I’m not trying to win Grammys or be famous or anything.” Phillips’ future success, as with all “Idol” winners before him, will be determined by record sales, not viewer votes. With his folksy singer-songwriter leanings, Phillips could capture the public’s attention in the same way that Arcade Fire, Bon Iver and Mumford and Sons have or, like ninth season winner DeWyze, he could just fade into obscurity.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
FRIDAY, MAY 25, 2012 You should do quite well in the year ahead with endeavors that allow you to use a lot of creativity, be it yours or someone else’s. You’ll be fully prepared and ready to expand upon others’ ideas without depleting their talents. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you feel insecure for some reason, be careful not to slip up and try to impress others with false airs or pretenses. You’re perfectly good being just the way you are. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -You’ll be sorry if you confuse wishful thinking with intuitive insights. If your hunches don’t play out, you’ll end up being unhappy and sorely disappointed. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It’s more than likely that you might not be as good at reading the intentions of others as you think you are. Don’t make the mistake of judging your friends’ actions in advance. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It might take a lot more effort than usual to convince your close associates that your idea and concepts are good. People in general tend to be a bit more skeptical than usual at this point. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Play it smart and don’t offer any unsolicited advice to co-workers regarding something you know little about. If you’re wrong, it’ll make you look bad. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Treat the property of others with the same care and respect you show to all your possessions. If a mishap should occur through carelessness, you will be held accountable. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Don’t make the mistake of assuming your mate will automatically be in accord with you regarding a vital matter. Don’t be sorry afterward, check first and avoid some serious conflict. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Have all the instructions in front of you when attempting to do something new and difficult. If your memory is faulty, you might not be able to correct any mistakes on your part. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Steer clear of an involvement in which the elements of chance are extremely pronounced. Regardless of how lucky you usually are, the odds might not hold up this time. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Your advice to someone who needs a lot of counsel might not be sound. In your desire to spare this person any pain, you might not be as frank as you should be. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Watch what comes out of your mouth very closely. Usually you’re pretty good at keeping promised secrets, but during this cycle you could easily slip and tell what you shouldn’t. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Sharpen up if you find yourself negotiating with a shrewd horse trader. If you are not careful, your desire to get a bargain could cause you to slip and negotiate in a way that works against you.

Iran rejects world powers’ proposal on nuclear curbs
By ALI AKBAR DAREINI and LARA JAKES The Associated Press BAGHDAD — Iranian negotiators today rejected proposals by six world powers to curb Tehran’s nuclear program, and demanded answers to their own counteroffer meant to alleviate concerns about the Islamic Republic’s ability to build atomic weapons. The stance underscored the difficulties facing the nuclear talks as both sides stake out their terms and agendas for a second day in the Iraqi capital. Still, the negotiations did not appear in danger of collapse. Envoys added extra hours to their meetings as a sandstorm closed down the Baghdad airport. Proposals for another round next month in Geneva also met with resistance from Iran, which is pushing for a venue not considered supportive of Western sanctions. Talks were expected to wrap up later today. The open channels between Iran and the six-nation bloc — the five permanent Security Council members plus Germany — are seen as the most hopeful chances of outreach between Washington and Tehran in years. They also could push back threats of military action that have shaken oil markets and brought worries of triggering a wider Middle East conflict. Israeli leaders have been critical of the talks, claiming it allows Iran to buy time and drive a wedge between Washington and Jerusalem. On Wednesday, Israel’s defense minister Ehud Barak said even possible moves by Iran to open its nuclear facilities to greater U.N. inspect doesn’t rule out a possible Israeli military strike. Saeed Jalili, Iran’s top nuclear negotiator, demanded an overhaul to the plan put forward by the world powers after the Baghdad talks began Wednesday. An Iranian diplomat involved in the discussions said the package falls far short of a compromise. Iran went into the talks seeking that the West scale back on its sanctions, which have targeted Iran’s critical oil exports and have effectively blackballed the country from international banking networks. Jalili conveyed his concerns in a private meeting today with European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, who is formally leading the talks. Ashton’s spokesman, Mike Mann, called the negotiations “tough,” but said that “some progress was made.” At the heart of the issue are two different proposals. On one side is an incentive package by the six-nation group — the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany — that seeks to halt the most sensitive part of Iran’s nuclear fuel production. Iran, in turn, wants the U.S. and Europe to ease harsh economic sanctions on its oil exports in return for pledges to give wider access to U.N. inspectors and other concessions. The West and its allies fear Iran’s nuclear program could eventually

A senior U.S. official predicted the pace of the talks — which began last month in Istanbul — would speed up in upcoming rounds. “We are urgent about it, because every day we don’t figure this out is a day they keep going forward with a nuclear program,” said the U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the negotiations more candidly. “And there are all kinds of assessments about how long it will take them to get there.” “We still think we have some time for diplomacy, but it’s not indefinite,” the official said. Iranian analyst Hassan Abedini called the proposal put forward by the U.S. and its allies unbalanced and filled only with old plans that Tehran dismissed years ago. jIn exchange, the world powers offered benefits, including medical isotopes, some nuclear safety cooperation and spare parts for civilian airliners that are needed in Iran. But they snubbed Iranian calls for an immediate easing of significant economic sanctions imposed on Tehran for flouting U.N. Security Council resolutions that demand the suspension of all enrichment. “Giving up 20 percent enrichment levels in return for plane spare parts is a joke,” said Abedini. “The package is unbalanced and therefore unacceptable.”

It was a really cool experience and really scary,” she said. “It was neat to see all of the different projects, some of them hurt my brain to think about.” Brinkman is the daughter of Kandis and Phil Brinkman and has three younger sisters, Sydney, Grace and Eva. Owens told the Times Bulletin on Tuesday, “Our investigation is continuing into our incident. We have been working handin-hand with both the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office and the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Identification (BCI). We have one detective assigned to the Hemker case fulltime since it happened.” Daniel Hemker was taken from his residence by two men who tied him up and put him in the back of his own car, then ran it into Middle Point Quarry. Hemker managed to escape when the rear window broke out of the car when the vehicle top hit the bottom of the quarry. He swam back to shore, then walked two and a half miles home to call 911.

The similarities between the Fair home invasion and that of the Grube case kept investigators looking for a link but that link was never found. “At this point, we don’t believe this case is connected to the Grube case. The Grube case is ongoing. We are making progress on the Grube case. I feel good about where we are at in that case right now. The only thing that could make me feel better is when we get somebody arrested. But we are making progress with that,” Grey stated.

He added that the three apartments will be ready for public viewing soon. The partners of Bitters Home Improvements invite the community to an open house noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. “We wanted to bring an up-scale New York-style modern apartment to downtown and we know there are

people who don’t want the responsibilities of homeownership and want this kind of apartment. We have the one rented already and have had interest expressed in the other that will be finished this coming week.” Missler said the trio were inspired by some of the architecture featured on cable television. “The new apartments are nothing like what was there before. We’ve all seen the Home and Garden Channel shows where they take an old building and transform it into a beautiful new space. That’s what we wanted to One of the apartments at Second and Canal streets do,” he said. features original hardwood flooring and a fireplace.
