Meyer keeps Putnam Surviving with hope and help fair family affair
By Monica Gerdeman Staff writer By ALEX WOODRING awoodring@delphosherald.com DELPHOS — The Relay for Life of Delphos 2012 started off as usual with the Survivor Lap. However, this year, the 1-lap trip for cancer survivors was not made alone. The track was also filled with those who have loved and cared for them through their testing trek. Jan Weichart is no exception when it comes to having a loving and supporting group of friends and family that have helped her from diagnosis to remission. Weichart was diagnosed last year on July 26. That day, she took a trip down to the James Cancer Center at Ohio State University where she spent the entire month of August. “That is when I had my induction chemotherapy. For the next four months, I would go down once a month for

FORT JENNINGS — A large part of the Putnam County Fair is the food. Not only are there funnel cakes and snow cones at the concession stands but also the baked goods entered for contests. Heather Meyer of Fort Jennings has been involved with baking items for fair contests since 2005. Meyer entered pies, cookies, breads and decorative cupcakes along with canned items such as jellies, beans, tomatoes, tomato juice and peaches, just to name a few. “I usually enter cookies; they vary from chocolate chip, sugar, peanut butter and any other flavor I can find. I like to try new recipes. I usually take zucchini bread and different kinds of pies, including apple, cherry and peach. I have also entered in some of my canned jellies, beans, tomatoes, tomato juice and peaches,” said Meyer. Meyer has also been involved with the animals. “I have always been involved in the fair. Growing up, my brothers, sister and I were involved in 4-H. My mom, Sue Rhodes, always took baked goods and entered them and still does. My husband is also on the fair board so as a fair board wife you are always finding yourself helping in some way,” Meyer said. “When I first started coming to the Putnam County Fair, I was always more involved in the animal part of it. I had a niece that was just starting to show. Then one day my mom and I were talking and she convinced me to enter.” Meyer’s sister, Tricia (Rhodes) Burkholder, also enters baked goods in the fair every year. “It has kind of become a Rhodes-girl tradition,” said Meyer. “When we were young, we were also involved with the Allen County Fair,

Meyer so I guess you could say it’s kind of our thing.” The Rhodes family really uses the fair to bring their family together as Meyer’s 2 1/2-year-old twin girls, Brooklynn and Mollie, are also beginning to get involved. “The girls are taking cookies that they have decorated this year and they are helping me bake to get ready for the fair,” Meyer said. Meyer has won many times for her baked and canned goods and sells them every year to promote the Culinary Department at the fair. “My favorite part would be that fact that most of all my recipes are from my mom and she is a great baker. Everyone tells her that. I feel closer to my mom when people tell me they like her cookies and pies I have made,” said Meyer. “The best part of baking for the fair is that I get to do it with my mother. I always go to the her house to bake my pies and it’s fun hanging out with her. I know that it is something that I will always remember.” Meyer bakes on a regular basis but since the birth of her daughters, she does not have as much time as she used to. “I look forward to passing down everything that I learned from her to my girls and hope that we have as great a connection as my sister and I have with my mother,” finished Meyer.

There are many reasons why I participate in the Relay for Life. The first and most important is because I truly believe that research is the way to beat cancer. I know there are many people who could use help with medical bills, gas, food and lodging when a family is struck by this disease. The money raised at the Relay each year would hardly touch those medical bills for one person. However, you never know which dollar is going to find the cure for a cancer and make those hospital bills and other expenses unnecessary for anyone. Another reason I relay is because I have lost family members to this enemy of mankind. My father was taken 16 years ago and my aunt soon followed. They had different types of cancer but suffered much the same. It’s hard to let them go but even harder to ask them to stay when they are so tired and in pain. I was by each of their bedsides when they took that final breath. It was heartbreaking to see strong, once vibrant people taken in such a manner. The first question is always why? Why my dad? Why my aunt? Why? Until we find a cure, it will be why not. Until we find a cure, it will be our friends and loved ones and US who battle this disease with our bodies. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been touched by cancer. It’s a disease that doesn’t distinguish between race, gender

(Continued from page 1) parents and my in-laws were very helpful,” she continued. “I have some good friends and I have a great neighbor. I couldn’t have done it without her, either. And also, my best friend from high school was a great help.” Weichart, like so many other survivors, has an extensive list of loved ones who she credits getting her through this perilous journey. “Everybody has just really been there for me and it means more than I could say,” she said. Family and friends are what many cancer survivors count on. Weichart shared this advice to those who find themselves diagnosed with any type of cancer. “The main thing is to just stay positive and have a hopeful outlook. It’s not always easy but it can be with the support of your family and friends,” she added. “Don’t be afraid to lean on them. That’s what they are there for; they help you keep a positive outlook.” When all was said and done this evening, her husband displayed that love and support when asked about his wife. He answered in a simple yet powerful way that helps define all of the survivor’s here today: “She is amazing.” KNIPPEN, Andrew J. “Drew,” 4, of Fort Jennings, Mass of Christian Burial will begin at 10:30 a.m. Monday at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Fort Jennings, the Rev.

It doesn’t care if you are going to leave behind loved ones or those who need you. It doesn’t care that you haven’t accomplished what you would like in life. It doesn’t care that you are a mother, father, son, daughter, wife, etc. Relayers care, though. We want you to live a long, happy life. We want you to hold your grandchildren and even great-grandchildren and tell them how we beat cancer. We want cancer to go down in the medical books as something that once killed and maimed many but no longer exists because people cared enough to find a cure. I have seen many survivors who ahve heard that dreaded news a second and even third time: You have cancer. Wouldn’t it be nice to hear other words? How about, NO MORE CANCER?

The campaign issued a statement Friday saying the event scheduled for Monday in Hamilton has been postponed due to scheduling changes, and no new date has been set. The campaign had said Biden was expected to talk about keeping teachers and emergency responders on the job. The visit had been meant to help mark one year since opponents of an Ohio bill limiting collective bargaining rights delivered 1.3 million signatures to get a referendum on the ballot.

COLUMBUS — To commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812, the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board has displayed a 10 foot by 15 foot 15-star American Flag in the Ohio Statehouse Rotunda. The flag is a replica of the star-spangled banner that flew above Ft. McHenry in Chesapeake Bay during the war, and famously inspired our country’s national anthem. The flag flew on Veterans Plaza on June 18, marking the exact day that President Madison declared war on Great Britain in 1812. The flag will be on display through at least December. Adjacent to the 15-star flag in the Rotunda is the magnificent painting, Perry’s Victory, depicting the Battle of Lake Erie. Perry’s Victory, depicts the key battle in which Oliver Hazard Perry led the American forces to victory over the British. Prominently painted in the picture is the 15-star American flag. Perry’s flagship, the Lawrence, had caught fire, and his crew suffered heavy casualties. The painting was the first piece of artwork commissioned by the state of Ohio for the new 1861 Statehouse. The survivors, including Perry, rowed to another American ship, the Niagara, transferred his battle flag and continued the fight, outmaneuvering the British. Oliver Hazard Perry, commanding the American fleet, met up with the British off the Bass Islands in Lake Erie and soundly defeated them.

Those Were Statehouse displays 15-Star U.S. flag to commemorate the bicentennial of War of 1812 The Days
As we grow older we often forget things we did as a child. Until recently, I had forgotten all about my cousin Sandy. I’m not sure what caused me to begin to recall times spent with Sandy but once the “Sandy file” stored in my mind was opened some wonderful and painful memories emerged. Perhaps my sharing them with you will help you in this incredible journey of life. It was summer. I was a kid of about 7 or 8-yearsold and I remember staying at my Grandpa and Grandma Florence’s home in the country (Rockport, W.Va) for several days. My cousin Sandy from Akron was also visiting there. We converted an old shed that Grandpa had into our “cabin.” Although Sandy was a girl, she loved playing “Cowboys and Indians.” The walls of our cabin were covered with pictures of horses (Sandy loved horses) and of our western heroes like The Cisco Kid and Pancho as well as my favorites The Lone Ranger and Tonto. “Who was that masked man?” A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty ‘Hi-Yo Silver! Away!’ With his faithful Indian companion Tonto, the Lone Ranger fought against injustice in the old west and so did Sandy and I. Sandy was a few years older than me but she didn’t make a big deal of it. We both had good imaginations and spent most of our days together chasing and shooting bad guys hiding in the rocks on the hillside. Our “six shooters” were just like the ones the good guys on television had – they never ran out of bullets. After putting the lawbreakers in jail, we would go back to our cabin or Grandma’s house for some food and rest. Because she was older, Sandy was wiser in the ways of the world than I was. It was Sandy who told me that there was no Santa Claus. I remember being a little upset with her for saying such a terrible thing. After thinking about it for a while, however, it began to make sense. It seemed like Santa brought more presents to some kids than he did me and I was such a good kid. I liked Sandy a lot. She was my favorite cousin. It makes me feel good to remember those summer days we enjoyed in what I would guess was about 1955. Several years passed by before I saw Sandy again. We were at Grandpa and Grandma Florence’s home, but I don’t remember why. I was a teenager and my dreams of being a western hero were replaced by a desire to be to be a star athlete. Sandy had become a beautiful young woman. We only had a few minutes together. I remember standing with her in their front yard that overlooked the hill on which their home of more than fifty years was built. It was a safe place where Sandy and I had so much fun. I don’t remember what we talked about, but there seemed to be a sadness about her. Maybe it was because the innocent days of childhood were gone. Perhaps it was because we had lived long enough to discover that the good guys don’t always win.

A 10x15-foot 15-star American Flag is now displayed in the Ohio Statehouse Rotunda to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812. This action effectively gave control of the lake to the Americans, and led to General William Henry Harrisons’ invasion of Canada. Perry is famous for his statement after the final stages of the battle, “We have met the enemy and they are ours.” About the War of 1812 In the War of 1812, the United States took on the greatest naval power in the world, Great Britain, in a conflict that would have an immense impact on the young country’s future. Causes of the war included British attempts to restrict U.S. trade, the Royal Navy’s impressment of American seamen and America’s desire to expand its territory. President James Madison requested a declaration of war to protect American ships on the high seas and to stop the British from impressing or seizing U.S. sailors. U.S. ships were being stopped and searched by both Great Britain and France, who were fighting each other in Europe. American attempts to invade Canada during the war failed, but U.S. forces won a number of important naval battles. Americans saw the War of 1812 as a triumph that showed the new nation could fend off foreign threats. The United States suffered many costly defeats at the hands of British, Canadian and Native American troops over the course of the War of 1812, including the capture and burning of the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., in August 1814. Nonetheless, American troops were able to repulse British invasions in New York, Baltimore and New Orleans, boosting national confidence and fostering a new spirit of patriotism. The ratification of the Treaty of Ghent on February 17, 1815, ended the war but left many of the most contentious questions unresolved. Nonetheless, many in the United States celebrated the War of 1812 as a “second war of independence,” beginning an era of partisan agreement and national pride.

Cincinnati zoo trainer brings out best in beasts
By JOHN JOHNSTON The Cincinnati Enquirer CINCINNATI — Without whispering a word or touching its tush, Megan-Kate Ferguson gets Cinder the pig to sit. A simple hand signal — followed by a tasty reward — does the trick. “Good boy!” says the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s 31-yearold curator of animal development and training. They’ve been working on it for only a day, but Cinder — a nearly 3-month-old Juliana pig, the smallest of all miniature pigs — is quickly catching on. Which isn’t surprising, given Ferguson’s success in training timid cougars, a head-butting miniature cow and an ornery camel, among others. Zoos have long relied on operant conditioning — a fancy term for techniques that modify animal behavior. But with Ferguson’s hiring last year, “we’re taking it to another level,” said David Oehler, the Cincinnati Zoo’s director of animal collections. The zoo said she was overqualified when she applied for a job in late 2010. At 15, Ferguson was the youngest licensed wildlife rehabilitator in her native Washington state. At 19, she left for Thailand and Myanmar, where she trained dolphins and worked with elephants, monkeys and other exotic species. Ferguson returned home and planned to go to veterinary school. But she was sidetracked by Crohn’s disease, an inflammatory bowel condition. So she worked as a dog trainer and latched on with animal training and rehabilitation centers, mostly on the West Coast. She was living in Portland and in need of health insurance when she was turned down for a Cincinnati Zoo job. A few months later, though, the zoo called back. It had obtained two cougar cubs from a rehab facility in Nebraska and wanted to feature them in a new exhibit. Would she train them on a contract basis? In February 2011 Ferguson loaded her car and headed east. The cougar cubs, brothers named Joseph and Tecumseh, were so “super fearful” of people, Ferguson wasn’t sure they would ever be put on display. “Animals won’t work with you unless they have some sort of trust,” Ferguson said. Trust develops over time. So she spent a lot of time with Joseph and Tecumseh — every day for nine and a half months straight. She fed them. She walked them. She ran with them. “That’s what they needed. Literally, I couldn’t leave them.” Kathy Watkins, a trainer with the zoo’s Cat Ambassador Program who worked alongside Ferguson, said her colleague exuded confidence. “I think the animals understood that, and respected her right from the beginning.” Ferguson forged an especially strong bond with Joseph, just as Watkins did with Tecumseh. At the end of a day, Ferguson would recline on a cot, with Joseph next to her. He’d put his paw over her shoulder and purr in her ear, into the night. Animal training is a growing specialty within the zoo world “because we realize how important this is to the health and welfare of the animals,” said Steve Feldman, senior vice president with the Silver Spring, Md.based Association of Zoos & Aquariums. It stimulates animals mentally and physically. They’re taught to be cooperative during medical checkups and procedures, making potentially risky sedation unnecessary. And they develop better relationships with their keepers. Zoo visitors also benefit. In Cincinnati, for example, they can get up close to animals — such as a screaming hairy armadillo and bateared fox — that have been trained to be at ease around people. What’s more, visitors can watch as animals demonstrate, on cue, a variety of natural behaviors. All of that helps visitors forge a connection with zoo animals, Oehler said, and often inspires people to take action to protect those creatures’ counterparts in the

wild. A cougar that hides in a corner of its enclosure and sleeps isn’t very inspiring. That’s what Joseph and Tecumseh did when Ferguson and Watkins first introduced them to an outdoor display. After 20 minutes on display, the cougars were rewarded with a favorite food, such as quail or rabbit. Gradually, the trainers kept the cats out longer. Food is a great motivator, and not just for cougars. It’s the positive reinforcement that entices a polar bear to jump into water on cue, an awake gorilla to hold still for a heart exam, or a hawk to fly across a stage. Repetition and patience are keys. To get Joseph to move to a specific place in his exhibit, Ferguson stood on that spot and called him. He complied because he knew he’d get a snack. In time, Ferguson and Watkins introduced another cue. Each trainer was wired with a buzzer that sounded at the moment they called a cat. Gradually, the trainer eased out of the picture, so the cat responded only to the buzzer. Now, during twice-daily zoo keeper encounters at the Night Hunters exhibit, a keeper pushes a button. A buzzer sounds. Visitors see a cougar run through the exhibit and get a reward. The cats also have been trained to show off their leaping ability and stand against the glass separating them from visitors.

Several more years passed by and I only heard of Sandy through other family members. Someone said that Sandy had become a mother. She had a baby. She still wasn’t married. She made a living as a dancer. The next time I saw her was at our Grandpa Florence’s funeral. Sandy created quite a stir when she and her little boy arrived in what looked like a dune buggy. She wasn’t wearing “funeral black” but was wearing a minidress and “go-go boots.” I was with my wife and our baby boy and I don’t remember if Sandy and I even talked that sad day. I didn’t know that I would never see her again. The years continued to come and go. I’d only hear about Sandy once in a while. I think she continued to work as a dancer. She never married but she loved her son, who had become a teenager. He was sleeping in the basement of their home when Sandy and her boyfriend were shot to death in their bedroom. Sandy’s mom said that an open Bible was on her lap when they found her lifeless body lying next to her boyfriend. Some in the family thought perhaps she had discovered Jesus and was telling her boyfriend they needed to make some changes in their life. Some suspected that their murder had something to do with drugs. As far as I know, it remains an unsolved case to this day. There was no masked man with a silver bullet there to save Sandy on that fateful day. There was a bad person with real bullets who took her life. Jesus said, “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. But I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.” Those who loved Sandy can only hope that before her life was taken she had found eternal life through Jesus Christ and that one day we will see her again. I suspect those childhood days spent playing with Sandy and pretending we were western heroes has had a profound impact on my life. My wife bought me a DVD with stories of the Lone Ranger that used to run on prime time television back in the 50s. I still enjoy watching them and I still want to be one of the good guys that fights for good and overcomes evil. Jesus is my hero now. As the pastor of Delphos First Assembly of God and as a Christian, I want to represent Him well. He is the hope of the world. As I wrap up this article, I’m reminded of how very blessed I am. Janie and I are having a great time with three of our grandchildren who are staying with us for two weeks while their parents are on vacation. We spent some time outside in the inflatable pool, but we’re in the basement at the moment. Johnny and Jamey, ages 8 and 5, are playing with their PSP (Play Station Portable). Jaynah, 11, is playing WII. I know they’ve all played and pretended to be super heroes, but I don’t know if they’ve ever played Cowboys and Indians. Maybe I can talk them into watching the Lone Ranger with me. Until next time, “Hi-Yo Silver! Away!

“A bore is a man who deprives you of solitude without providing you with company.” — Giovanni Vincenzo Gravina, Italian scholar (1664-1718)

That
IT WAS NEWS THEN
The church bells tolled at high noon for six minutes in Fort Jennings on Monday to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the beginning of the War of 1812. Bell ringing ceremonies such as this were performed in many parts of Ohio. A 15 star, 15 stripe flag was raised at the monument on State Route 189, which marks the location where it is believed the actual fort stood. The ceremonies included a reading of President Madison’s Declaration of War and a moment of silence to honor the 12 soldiers buried at Ft. Jennings during the War of 1812. It was also to remember all those who are serving or have served our country. The 12 soldiers buried at Fort Jennings were not killed in battle but died of swamp fever. Members of the Fort Jennings High School Band played the “Star Spangled Banner” after a reading was given on the history of our National Anthem by the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and the American Legion. Madison’s Declaration of War Part 1 On June 1, 1812, President James Madison sent a war message to Congress. This document cited numerous American grievances against Great Britain, including impressment of US sailors into the Royal Navy, the practice of searching American vessels in American waters, trade policies that hurt the American economy and finally the incitement of the Natives to violence by the British Army. A few days later the House of Representatives voted 79 to 49 in favor of war. President Madison signed the Declaration of War on June, 18, 1812. On that same day the declaration was read across countless cities and towns and was met with the ringing of the bells. Part 2 Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress Assembled, that war be and the same is hereby declared to exist between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and the dependencies thereof, and the United States of America and their territories; and that the President of the United States is hereby authorized to use the whole land and naval force of the United States to carry the same into effect, and to issue to private armed vessels of the United States commissions or letters of marquee and general reprisal, in such for as he shall think proper, and under the seal of the United States, against the vessels, goods, and effects of the government of the said United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and the subjects thereof. APPROVED June 18, 1812 The War of 1812 played an important role in the shaping of west central and northwestern Ohio. The following forts were located in the Northwest Territory. They are: Fort Amanda, east of Spencerville; Fort Auglaize, near Wapakoneta; Fort Ball, Tiffin; Fort Barbee (St. Marys), Fort Brown, near Melrose; Fort Winchester (Fort Defiance), Fort Jennings, Fort Laramie; Fort Ferree, Upper Sandusky; Fort Findlay, Fort Necessity, near Williamstown (aka Mud Outpost); Fort Seneca, Old Fort; Fort Stephenson, Fremont, Fort Meigs, Perrysburg, Fort Morrow, near Norton, Urbana Fort (unnamed defense) and Girty’s Town, Trading Post at St. Marys. These were all in Ohio. Then there was Fort Detroit and Fort Mackinac in Michigan and there was the Battle at River Raisin Monroe, Michigan. There was also Fort Dearborn, near Chicago and Fort Wayne (Indiana). Transportation through Ohio was done on the rivers or on the paths along the rivers. The Auglaize River was a very important route

For the past month, much literature has been distributed by both the committee favoring the municipal plant and the Ohio Power Company, which is now serving the city with electricity and by other opposing installation of the plant. • The Allen County Agricultural Society directors are starting work in earnest in preparation for the annual Delphos Fair which will be held in August. It has been decided to conduct another horse pulling contest this year. A milking contest will also be staged this year. • The Palace Sweet Shop team defeated the Equity in the only Recreational League game played Tuesday night.

Members of the Fort Jennings High School Band provided music for the ceremony at the monument. The flag of 1812. from Fort Amanda to Fort Defiance. This was the only way to get through the deep, dark swamp. A group of Kentucky Militia was mustered in into the Army in Frankfort, Kentucky. They made their way to Fort St. Marys to join General William Harrison’s Army. General Harrison ordered Lt. Col. Jennings to proceed down the Auglaize River, toward Fort Defiance, and establish an intermediate post and escort provisions to Gen. James Winchester on the Maumee River. Advancing about 30 miles, Lt. Col. Jennings saw signs of Indians and his spies reported the enemy was near Fort Defiance. He halted on the banks of the Auglaize and began building block houses. During the building of the fort, the men stationed there camped in tents. Fort Jennings was built as a supply fort. The Ohio Historical Marker in front of the Fort Jennings Memorial Hall reads: “On Sept. 21, 1812, Col. William Jennings, with his regiment of Kentucky Riflemen, was ordered by Gen. W. H. Harrison to cut a road from Fort Barbee at St. Marys to a point midway between that place and Defiance, and there establish a fort. The post was completed on this site

In the spring and summer of 1813, the enemy failed in two attempts to take Fort Meigs, Gen. Harrison’s bastion on the Maumee. The tide turned in favor of the Americans. In August, Major Croghan made his staunch stand at Fort Stephenson (Fremont) and in September, Commodore Perry swept the British fleet from the lakes in the Battle of Lake Erie near Put-In-Bay. General Harrison then invaded Canada and on October 5th won a decisive victory in the Battle of the Thames. Tecumseh was killed in this battle and the war, to all intents was over in the northwest.” The War of 1812 ended in December of 1814. Fort Jennings was then abandoned as a military post.

Lincoln Way improvement
The work on the Lincoln Highway improvement is starting off nicely. The rough grading has been done on the entire east section which extends about a mile and a half west of Delphos. Onehalf mile of this has been completely graded and dressed and is ready for stone. The large trucks are now hauling stone and the water bound base will be started. The water bound base will be seven inches thick and will consist of two three-and-ahalf-inch cources. On top of this will be placed a threeinch bituminous top. Water is being used to a considerable extent to pack the base and place it in good condition for the stone work. A number of teams have been secured from local firms and teamsters and are now being used on the road work. About forty men are now employed in the work of grading and teaming. The supply of stone from the local quarry of the Limestone Quarry Company for the work is being facilitated by the recent purchase of a steam shovel. Work has been started on the west section also. A new bridge is being constructed over the West Jennings Creek, the second creek west of Delphos. This will be concrete and thirty feet wide. The road is now closed to all traffic. (Edward Geise, deceased, who, as a young man, lived near the Lincoln Highway, said that when they started to pike the highway, farmers were hired to use their

BOB HOLDGREVE

stonebed wagons to haul stone. The farmers would drive their team and wagon to the quarry, load it, and go where the stone was needed and pull one board at a time out of the wagon bed, dropping the stone and level it with a shovel. For all this work, they were paid $1.00 per load. R.H.) Delphos Herald, July 3, 1919 ---------Lincoln Way To Run East From Delphos 55 Miles According to an important change in routing the Lincoln Highway which has just been announced by the Lincoln Highway Assn., Lima will no longer be on the route of this transcontinental road. The association is endeavoring to make the Lincoln Way as direct a coast-to-coast route as possible and has therefore decided upon using the road known as the DelphosBucyrus road from Gomer to Upper Sandusky, instead of turning east of Gomer to pass through Lima. This road is an absolutely straight stretch for fifty-five miles from Delphos direct into Upper Sandusky and, therefore, will mean a great saving of time for traveling.

Window to the Past

Fort Jennings commemorating the War of 1812. in October 1812 and named in honor of its builder. The road begun by Col. Jennings was later extended to Fort Winchester by Col. Poague, builder of Fort Amanda. The Auglaize River Valley then became a major supply artery for Harrison’s Army, operating to the northwest by boat and wagon in summer and by sled in winter. Troops and large quantities of Army stores were moved through here to the scenes of the major actions. The following description is on the reverse side of the marker: The War of 1812 in the Northwest. On June 18, 1812, a war began which is considered to be the final phase of the American Revolution. In the northwest, early actions were disastrous to the United States. The British, under General Proctor, and the Indians under Tecumseh, captured Mackinac Island, took Fort Dearborn (Chicago), forced General Hull to surrender his army at Detroit, and massacred General Winchester’s Army on

Hendrick credits Letarte for rebuilding Earnhardt
By JENNA FRYER The Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Rick Hendrick gave little warning to his crew chiefs when he decided to make widespread organizational changes after the 2010 season. Among the swaps? Moving Steve Letarte away from 4-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon after five full seasons for a daunting job — guiding Dale Earnhardt Jr. out of his lengthy slump. “I walked in one day unannounced and said, ‘Next year, you’re not going to have Jeff Gordon, you’re going to have Dale Earnhardt’,” Hendrick recelled. “No one knew what was going to happen. When I told him, within 15 minutes he was in his car driving to Dale’s house and he said, ‘I’m going to sit down with Dale and we’re just going to talk about racing, about life, about each other, what each of us want to accomplish’.” It was a critical moment for NASCAR’s most popular driver, who in his 51st race with Letarte finally broke a 4-year losing streak with his victory Sunday at Michigan. Earnhardt had been through the wringer. It started in 2007, when he made the difficult decision to leave his late father’s race team and chose Hendrick Motorsports after the most frenzied freeagent pursuit in NASCAR history. The first season with Hendrick in 2008 was OK as Earnhardt won a race and made the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship. The next two years were terrible and Hendrick had to fire Earnhardt’s cousin, Tony Eury Jr., when the two could no longer function as driver and crew chief. Then came Lance McGrew, who couldn’t get the No. 88 team turned around. So it was up to Letarte, a Hendrick Motorsports lifer who had started as a parttime employee as a teenager in 1995. Hired full-time as a tire specialist, he’d risen through the company ranks to crew chief working only with Gordon. Starting over was going to take some relationship-building and Letarte went right to work. “They were together all the time. That created that trust ... Dale does not trust everybody,” Hendrick said. “Chemistry is so important. Sometimes you never hit the right combination but, man, I look back and I think we’re very fortunate — didn’t have any idea it was going to be titles with Jimmie Johnson. What Letarte learned over the years is that accountability in the workplace is as critical as the car itself. He needed Earnhardt engaged and to be available when the team engineers needed feedback. It was non-negotiable. “This is how this building has always operated. It operated that way when Ray was here, I think Chad and I learned a lot from him, how he ran his race team,” Letarte said. “There are expectations set forth for every employee whether you’re the tire man, engineer, engine man or the driver. The driver isn’t a subcontractor, he’s a team member. “I think those expectations were laid out, they’ve been met 110 percent. It’s not what people say in life that makes a difference, it’s what people do. I think those actions have spoken louder than any words that could have been said within the team to get everybody fired up and pulling on the same side of the rope.” It’s hard to question Letarte’s methods considering the turnaround Earnhardt has made. Although he didn’t win last season, he returned to the Chase field for the first time since 2008. This year, the losing streak has finally ended and Earnhardt leads the Sprint Cup series with 12 top-10 finishes through 15 races. He is the only driver to complete every lap this season. Earnhardt heads to Sunday’s road course race at Sonoma, where he’s never notched a top-10 finish, ranked second in the standings and a legitimate championship contender. Hendrick, two days after Earnhardt’s dominating win at Michigan, couldn’t praise Letarte enough for the job he’s done. “Stevie has a unique way of putting his arm around him and saying, ‘Look, Bubba, we’re in this together, together we’re going to do this, this is what I’m going to do, this is what you need to do’,” Hendrick added. “To go from doubting what he had to feeling like he has the best (team) in the garage, that’s a tremendous job. I think it’s probably the hardest job out there.”
McClure gets medical OK to race at Road America ELKHART LAKE, Wis. — Driver Eric McClure has received medical clearance to resume racing when the NASCAR Nationwide Series visits Road America this weekend. McClure has missed the last six races after he sustained a concussion and internal bruising in an accident at Talladega Superspeedway on May 5. Jeff Green drove the No. 14 Toyota in McClure’s absence. McClure says he’s “very excited and thankful” to be back behind the wheel. Nationwide races at Road America, a 4-mile road course in Wisconsin, start this afternoon. Charlie Kimball earns national honor DES MOINES, Iowa — IndyCar driver Charlie Kimball found it more than humbling to be honored with a group that included an 11-year-old Texas boy who started a city-wide recycling program and a Baltimore woman who founded a nonprofit program to help the homeless. But Kimball earned what’s known as the “Nobel Prize of Public Service” by choosing not to be modest about his own fight against diabetes. Kimball, along with NFL Hall-ofFamer Jim Kelly and former hockey star Pat LaFontaine, was given a Jefferson Award, one of the nation’s top honors for community service and volunteerism, on Tuesday in Washington, D.C. Kimball, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes nearly five years ago, was lauded because of his efforts to raise awareness about the disease. “It was unreal to be included in a group like that. A group of people that had done so much,” said Kimball, who will run in tonight’s IndyCar race in Iowa. “It was almost embarrassing, in a way that I don’t see what I do as a pure dedication to service because it’s a by-product of doing what I love. But at the same time, it is very important to me to do that.” Kimball still remembers the exact day he was diagnosed: Oct. 16, 2007. Until then, Kimball was just another healthy young driver progressing toward a permanent ride in a major series. Kimball, a native of California, started his career in open-wheel racing when he was just 17. In 2005, Kimball won five races in British Formula 3 racing, becoming the first American to win even one event in that circuit in 13 years and finished second in the championship race. Two years later, Kimball went to the doctor’s office for an unrelated skin rash. He’d also been complaining of constant thirst and when Kimball jumped on a scale he realized he’d lost 25 pounds in just five days. Kimball, then 22, skipped the rest of the season in the World Series of Renault after being diagnosed. But he quickly learned that diabetes wouldn’t keep him from pursuing his openwheel aspirations as long as he took the necessary precautions. “If he had said, ‘No, I don’t think you’ll ever drive again,’ I’d have found a different doctor,” Kimball recalled. “I spent that winter getting healthy again, regaining the weight, getting stronger and figuring out what diabetes meant.” Kimball learned how to keep his diabetes in check by constantly checking his blood-sugar levels and managing his insulin doses. By 2009, he was back in the U.S. racing in the Indy Lights series, a feeder system for the IndyCar series. Diabetes is what led Kimball to his current sponsor. Kimball’s doctor sent an e-mail to someone she knew at Novo Nordisk, a health care company dedicated to fighting diabetes, explaining how Kimball was using their products to stay healthy. That eventually led to his current sponsorship in the IndyCar series, as Kimball and Novo Nordisk teamed up with Chip Ganassi Racing and the No. 83 car. Kimball’s partnership with the company has forced him to be very open about his own struggles with diabetes and that’s a challenge he’s chosen to embrace. “If you hide it from the public, you’ll hide it from yourself,” Kimball said. “Being upfront about it forced me to deal with it, to sort of really pay attention to it. To be proactive about it.” All the good will Kimball has engendered off the track has yet to help him much in IndyCar. Kimball, now in his second full season in the series, has yet to score a top-5 finish in 25 career races. He did manage to put together three consecutive 8th-place finishes at Sao Paolo, Indianapolis and Belle Isle in Michigan. But Kimball was knocked out at Texas after just 29 laps and last week he qualified 18th and finished 17th after battling a bronchial infection. Still, battling diabetes has given Kimball a sense of perspective about his life and his burgeoning career. Kimball even makes it a point to throw a party every Oct. 16 for what he likes to call his “diabetes-versary.” “I have the opportunity to do what I love. There’s no place I’d rather be than in a race car. But doing this with the diabetes community means that no matter how good or bad of a day I have on the race track, it’s still a good day if I’m out there competing and proving to just one kid that he can live his dream,” Kimball added. Police urge tractor-trailers to bypass speedway SPARTA, Ky. — Kentucky State Police are urging people driving tractortrailers and buses to stay away from the Kentucky Speedway to avoid big race-day crowds expected later this month. It’s part of a plan aimed at avoiding a repeat of last year’s traffic jam that marred the track’s inaugural Sprint Cup Series race. The state has made road improvements and the Speedway expanded parking in hopes of smoother traffic flow this time. State police said Thursday that tractor-trailers and buses should avoid the Gallatin County area, especially Interstate 71, on June 29-30 when the northern Kentucky track will have big racing crowds. The signature event is the Quaker State 400 on June 30. Police say an alternate route will be available for commercial motor vehicles on those days to avoid delays. Hamilton aims to break F1’s parity at European GP BARCELONA, Spain — Formula One leader Lewis Hamilton is looking to capitalize on his triumph in Montreal with a win in Sunday’s European Grand Prix that would make him the first repeat winner in Formula One this season and break the unprecedented run of seven different winners in seven races. Besides keeping his eye on the most wide-open field of challengers ever seen, Hamilton will have to fend off Fernando Alonso’s improved Ferrari and 2-time defending world champion Sebastian Vettel, going for his third consecutive win at Valencia. Hamilton leads Alonso overall by two points and Red Bull’s Vettel by three.

this good. But I think that the chemistry between these two guys — and I’ve been doing this for 30 years — is as good as or better than any I’ve ever seen.” Letarte’s biggest responsibility was rebuilding Earnhardt’s confidence, shattered during his slump. He coached Junior outside the race car and cheered him over the team radio; it didn’t take long last season to see Earnhardt starting to believe in himself again. Only that’s not where Earnhardt believes Letarte made the biggest difference. Letarte’s best work, the driver said, was in setting some rules for NASCAR’s biggest superstar. “He didn’t really have to sell me on anything, I just did whatever he said,” Earnhardt explained. “And the first thing he said was, ‘Man, this is going to be a little different. I’m going to need you to be accountable.’ He gave me all kinds of little restrictions and things he needed me to do and places he needed me to be. “That structure and accountability was good for me. This team has been successful for years and I knew he’s got to have a pattern for it to be that way, so I just did what he told me.” Letarte has grown up in the Hendrick organization and much of his approach in dealing with people he learned from the team owner. He also worked for years under Ray Evernham, who guided Gordon to three championships, and he’s been side-byside since 2002 with Chad Knaus, who won five straight

By ERIC OLSON The Associated Press OMAHA, Neb. — Arizona’s Andy Lopez says that as long as he coaches, he’ll use designated hitter Bobby Brown as an example of perseverance. “There’ll be someone somewhere that I’ll be coaching and he’ll be down, hasn’t played, hasn’t made a road trip, and his body language will say ‘I’m in the tank’,” Lopez said Friday. And then Lopez will tell that player the story of Brown, the kid from San Diego who didn’t become a key contributor in the Wildcats’ program until his fifth year.

After appearing in 17 games last season, Brown has emerged to hit a careerbest .353 and make the AllPac 12 team. He hit his fifth home run of the season in Thursday’s 10-3 win over Florida State that moved Arizona to the best-of-3 College World Series finals. He’s batting .300 in three CWS games and .400 in eight NCAA tournament games. “I’ve sat most of my career on the bench and there were times it was really difficult to watch other guys play in front of me,” Brown said. “There have been times I thought I should move on to other things. I’m glad I stayed and we’re here in the

College World SerieS Notebook
College World Series.” Brown was expected to be an everyday player last season but he lost the DH job to Josh Garcia, who now is an undergraduate assistant. “He’s always shown the ability to hit,” Lopez said. “The biggest difference between Bobby Brown this year and last year and previous years is his ability to slow the game down. He has done a marvelous job of slowing the game down and taking big at-bats. Some guys walk in and can slow the game down. Other guys, it takes a year or two. Some, it takes three.” Brown started slowly this year. He was hitless in his first 14 at-bats and was benched against Auburn when he was 2-for-21. Brown became the regular DH on March 24 for the second game of a series at Oregon State. He hit his first career homer that day for the go-ahead run in the ninth inning. Brown was selected to the Tucson all-regional team and had the game-tying single in the bottom of the 10th inning of the super regional opener against St. John’s. He got off to a rough start at the CWS. He went 0-for-5, striking out three times, in a 12-inning win over Florida State. Two nights later, he hit a 2-run double in a 4-0 win over UCLA; Thursday, he drove a ball into the rightfield bullpen for a 10-1 lead over Florida State. “I’ve always known I’m a good player,” Brown added. “I needed the opportunity and I knew eventually I would get it. I got it this year and I’ve run away with it.”

“The intensity of this year’s championship means there’s so little breathing space. We may have won in Canada but there’s an enormous amount of pressure to keep racking up good results at every grand prix,” said Hamilton, who has finished runner-up three times in the four years the race has been held in the Mediterranean coastal city. Even though this season is proving to be the most competitive in the series’ history, Hamilton enters the event at the sinewy America’s Cup harbor course in top form. The English driver finally broke through with a commanding win two weeks ago at the Canadian GP when his McLaren team outfoxed Ferrari and Red Bull with a well-timed pit stop to give Hamilton the fresh set of tires he needed to overtake Vettel and Alonso and claim his first win of 2012. Hamilton believes the season will be tightly contested to the end. Pirelli’s tricky tires have kept teams guessing for the best setup and pitstop strategy and the outcome in doubt through the first seven races of the year. The Valencia street circuit is notoriously tough for passing, so a strong qualifying run today and smooth teamwork in the pits should play a critical role to determine who celebrates on the podium come Sunday. Last year, Vettel beat the secondplace Alonso by more than 10 seconds after speeding away from pole. The German also recorded the fastest lap on the 25-turn, 3.4-mile course. It appears that at least both man and machine won’t have to deal with last year’s blistering temperatures. Forecasts call for a reasonable 86 degrees over the weekend as opposed to last year when temperatures reached a stifling 115 degrees. Alonso, who has never won in front of the home Spanish crowd at Valencia, left the Canadian GP ruing the risky decision to try and maintain his lead on worn tires late in the race, only to see his pace falter and end up finishing fifth. But, after a slow start to the season, Ferrari has revamped its car and given the two-time world champion a vehicle it believes capable of winning on any track. Hamilton’s teammate, Jenson Button, and Vettel’s teammate, Mark Webber, also will be looking for that elusive second win of the season, along with Pastor Maldonado of Williams and Nico Rosberg of Mercedes. Rosberg’s partner, Michael Schumacher, will be hard pressed not to improve this round. The record 7-time champion has failed to finish five races this year and has yet to place better than 10th. Yet given the unpredictable nature of this campaign, an eighth different winner in the eighth race cannot be ruled out. Either Lotus driver — 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen and second-year pilot Romain Grosjean — or Sauber driver Sergio Perez could be due for first-place finish. Grosjean and Perez came in second and third, respectively, in Canada, masterfully managing their tires toward the end, while Raikkonen has made the podium twice this season, his first back after a 2-year hiatus from F1. Vettel was the fastest through two practice sessions Friday. The 2-time defending world champion, who has won here the past two seasons starting from the pole, posted the day’s best lap in the second session of 1 minute, 39.334 seconds on the 3.3-mile Valencia Street Circuit. Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg was next, followed by Kamui Kobayashi of Sauber and Schumacher. Alonso was seventh, while Hamilton was 14th. The top 15 drivers all recorded times within a 1-second margin. Qualifying is today after the final practice session.

THE NAME IS ANDY: Lopez reminisced about the under-the-radar Pepperdine team he brought to the CWS in 1992. The Waves won the national championship. He laughed about the preCWS banquet where all the coaches gave a talk about their teams. The master of ceremonies called Pepperdine “Pepperdeen” and addressed the coach as Al Lopez rather than Andy Lopez. See CWS, page 7

“Two weeks later, they knew who we were,” Lopez added. GET A MOVE ON: South Carolina coach Ray Tanner had an animated talk with LB Dantzler during Thursday night’s game when Dantzler returned to the dugout after making a base running error that cost the Gamecocks a run in their 2-0 win over Arkansas. Dantzler rounded third and stopped as centerfielder Matt Vinson bobbled the ball. Had Dantzler been watching the ball, Tanner said, he would have known he could have easily scored. Television cameras caught Tanner getting after Dantzler. “I didn’t have my hands around his neck, did I?” Tanner asked. “LB is probably the

OHIO DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES Division of Wildlife To conserve and improve fish and wildlife resources and their habitats for sustainable use and appreciation by all “Fish Ohio” Weekly Report CENTRAL OHIO Indian Lake (Logan County) - This 5,040-acre lake located one hour west of Columbus is one of the best for saugeyes in central Ohio; these are being taken by trolling crank baits and worm harnesses close to Moundwood, Dream Bridge and South Bank areas. Largemouth bass are being caught using spinner baits, tubes and crank baits around shoreline cover and in the channels. Bluegill can still be found in shallow water using wax worms under a bobber. Kokosing Lake (Knox County) - This 149-acre lake is limited to outboard motors of 10 horsepower or less. Largemouth Bass are being caught around shoreline cover and along the dam using crank baits and tubes. Bluegill are in shallow areas; try wax worms or nightcrawlers under a bobber. Crappies have moved to deeper water; use minnows or crappie jigs fished under a slip bobber around cover or the old creek channel for best results. Channel catfish can be caught on chicken livers, shrimp, or nightcrawlers fished on the bottom. NORTHWEST OHIO Lake La Su An Wildlife Area Ponds (Williams County) - Fishing pressure has been very light despite anglers having success catching large bluegill at the area lakes. This fishery is intensively managed to maintain this harvest. All area lakes are open to public fishing Fridays through Mondays until July 30. No more than 10 sunfish may be kept per day for all these lakes; no more than two of these may be 8 inches or more in length. Largemouth bass must be 18 inches or more to keep. For additional rules and information, visit the Division’s web page. Ferguson Reservoir (Allen County) - Bluegill have been biting at the 305acre reservoir; try near the boat ramp at the north bank and at the east bank near the cattails. Jigs and wax worms fished under a slip bobber have been enticing. Catfish should also be biting this time of year; try along the dike that separates Ferguson and Metzger reservoirs along the bottom using balloons at night with crawlers, shrimp, or liver suspended below. Anglers can still catch walleye along the shoreline, especially in the early morning and evening. There is a primitive boat ramp on the reservoir but boats are restricted to electric motors. Clear Fork Reservoir (Richland/ Morrow counties) - Located just 8 miles south of Mansfield along SR 97, this 971-acre site is well known for its muskellunge population, one of eight lakes stocked with muskellunge in Ohio. The lake also has good populations of crappie and bluegill. For bluegill, try red and wax worms under a bobber along fallen trees and along drop-offs. For crappie, fish near the brush and fallen trees along the shore using minnows and plastic grub jigs. A boat ramp and marina are located on the south side east of Bowers Road. In addition, there are three picnic areas with access to the lake located along the south side. Shore fishing is only allowed along the south and west shorelines from the Orewiler Road bridge to a point 1,000

feet upstream of the dam. There are no motor size restrictions but an 8-mph speed limit is enforced by the city of Mansfield. NORTHEAST OHIO Lake Milton (Mahoning County) The summer smallmouth bass bite has started on this busy reservoir. Anglers are targeting these scrappy fighters and taking lots on soft plastic baits, while walleye anglers are catching them jigging and trolling. Look for smallmouth bass moving to offshore structure like points and drop-offs. The walleye bite has been slower than the bass but anglers trolling shad-style crank baits have been having some success. Anglers looking to put a trophy fish in the boat may also elect to

pursue the lake’s excellent muskellunge population; troll big crankbaits near the river channel and around deep structure in 15-20 feet of water for these bruisers. SOUTHEAST OHIO Seneca Lake (Guernsey/Noble counties) - Good catches of striped bass can be reeled in using artificial lures trolled near the first small island outside of the no-wake zone. Saugeye can be caught by trolling jigs tipped with a twister tail and a minnow, or twister jigs tipped with a nightcrawler and fished slow retrieve along the bottom. The area around the upper island and in Cadillac Bay is always popular. Channel cats can be caught off the banks of the lake near Briar Hill Road past the last island in the upper section; try chicken livers or nightcrawlers. Burr Oak Lake (Athens/Morgan counties) - Black bass can usually be caught in good numbers in this 632acre lake; try in the upper bay using green and white spinners, at the mouth of bootleg bay using orange crank baits and off the shoreline across from the beach using speckled tube baits. Sunfish up to 6 inches can be caught along most shorelines with a worm and bobber. For channel catfish, try the area along the dock 3 shoreline using a worm fished off the bottom. SOUTHWEST OHIO Paint Creek Lake (Highland County) - Crappies can be caught using curly tails, small spinner baits, or live minnows; white or chartreuse are good color choices for artificial lures. Cast into areas with submerged trees and brush; keep the bait under a slip bobber and about 5-6 feet deep. You may also be successful with minnows under a bobber. Bluegill and sunfish can be taken using red or wax worms under a slip bobber 3-4 feet deep, particularly in areas with woody debris, such as fallen trees or over-hanging brush. For channel cats, try chicken livers, crayfish, stink bait or night crawlers 5-6 feet deep beneath the dam along the rocky bottom areas. If you’re after largemouths, try jigs with plastic bodies, spinner baits, small top-water lures, or plastic worms; choose an artificial lure colored black or pumpkinseed. Cast into area with woody debris; fish the bait slowly along the bottom in water about 4-5 feet deep. East Fork Lake (Clermont County) Crappies being taken using live minnows under a slip bobber between 12-15 feet deep; cast into areas with submerged trees and brush. Good opportunities abound in the area around the island,

Saddle dam and near beaches. For largemouth bass, try plastic chartreuse-, black-, or green-colored worms on a Texas rig, or plastic lizards 4-5 feet deep; cast into areas with submerged trees or brush. Channel catfish being caught using chicken livers, cut bait, or soft crayfish under a bobber and off the bottom, especially off Tunnel Mill. Hybrid-striped bass are being caught in shallow water 1-3 feet deep by fishing with chicken liver or night crawlers just off of the bottom. OHIO RIVER Belleville Pool (Washington County) - The river is currently at normal summer pool elevation and clear. Good numbers of channel catfish and flatheads are being caught at night near the Muskingum River confluence with the Ohio River and the Belpre City Ramp; preferred baits are bluegill and large shiners that are being fished below large slip bobbers. Good catches of spotted bass are also being caught by bass anglers fishing the shoreline along Marietta Island; successful baits include green jigs and various minnow- and shadimitation crank baits. Try fishing jigs along weed beds and woody cover and crank baits in open water along the outer edge of weed beds. Greenup tail water (Scioto County) Hybrid-striped bass in the 2- to 6-pound range are being caught on live and cut gizzard shad and skipjack fished under a casting float or “launcher” float. River conditions are low and clear, so most of the hybrids are being caught near the hydro plant discharge or next to the retaining wall of the dam. LAKE ERIE Daily Bag Limit Regulations to Remember: Walleye — 6 fish per angler on Ohio waters of Lake Erie (minimum size limit of 15 inches); Yellow perch - 30 fish per angler on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie; Trout/ salmon - 5 fish per angler through Aug. 31 (minimum size limit is 12 inches); Black bass (largemouth and smallmouth bass) - It is illegal to possess black bass in Ohio waters of Lake Erie through Friday (the season re-opens June 30 with a daily bag limit of 5 fish and a 14-inch minimum size limit). Western Basin Walleye fishing has been good here; fish have been caught by trolling or drifting and casting NW of West Sister Island, at the turnaround buoy of the Toledo shipping channel, W of Green Island and Rattlesnake Island and along the Canadian border from North Bass Island to Gull Island Shoal. Trollers have been using worm harnesses with inline weights or divers and also divers with spoons. ... Yellow perch fishing has been best around Gull Island Shoal, off of Niagara Reef and off of Marblehead; perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Central Basin Walleye fishing has been good; fish have been caught from Ruggles Reef to Vermilion, in 63’ of water N of Gordon Park and in 60-67’ of water N of Wildwood State Park. There has been excellent fishing in 72’ of water NE of Geneva and in 72’ of water NW of Ashtabula; trollers are using divers with green, yellow, black, blue and purple spoons and worm harnesses. ... Yellow perch fishing has been fair to good; the best locations include 35’ of water N of Gordon Park in Cleveland, in 38-40’ of water N of Wildwood State Park, 52’ NE of Lakeshore Park in Ashtabula and 42-48’ N of Conneaut.

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; anglers are using spreaders with shiners, especially mornings and evenings. Shore anglers are also catching rock bass off the Cleveland piers. ... Smallmouth bass fishing has been very good in 15-25’ around harbor areas in Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula and Conneaut on drop-shot rigs with rubber worms, soft-craws, leeches, tube jigs and crank baits. East of Fairport Harbor, anglers are trolling crank baits at 17-22’ with good success. ... Catfish fishing continues to be very good in the Grand River around the Grand River Landing; anglers are catching large fish using nightcrawlers. ... The water temperature is 70 degrees off of Toledo and 67 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.

The Associated Press SOCCER GDANSK, Poland — With Chancellor Angela Merkel cheering every step of the way, Germany dominated Greece — on the soccer field. The Germans reached the European Championship semifinals for a record seventh time by beating Greece 4-2 Friday in a match played amid the contentious political backdrop between the countries. The 3-time champions were in control at the Arena Gdansk. Philipp Lahm put Germany in the lead in the 39th minute as his team controlled nearly every facet of the game. Although Georgios Samaras tied it for Greece in the 55th, it was all Germany after that as Sami Khedira, Miroslav Klose and Marco Reus scored. It was the 15th consecutive competitive victory for Germany, dating back to the win over Uruguay for third place at the 2010 World Cup. The Germans will go for No. 16 against either England or Italy in the semifinals on Thursday in Warsaw. Although Germany dominated from the start, the Greek defense held strong for much of the first half. Lahm put his team in front by controlling the ball with his chest and dribbling toward the middle before sending a long-distance shot into the corner off the hand of Greece goalkeeper Michalis Sifakis. The Greeks looked better at the start of the second half and tied it when Samaras knocked the ball past Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer after a perfect cross from Dimitris Salpigidis. It was one of Greece’s few forays into Germany’s side of the field.

SportS BriefS

ERA of 1.80 in the NCAA tournament. The Razorbacks had allowed just four runs in 27 innings at the CWS, a 1.33 ERA. Their bullpen extended their scoreless streak to 23 2-3 innings. The last run allowed by the Arkansas bullpen came on June 10 against Baylor in the fifth inning. ... South Carolina on Thursday became the first team to allow a total of five hits or fewer in back-to-back games since 1964, when Missouri held Minnesota to one hit on June 15 and then Maine to two hits on June 17. The Gamecocks gave up two hits in a 4-1 win over Kent State and three in a 2-0 win over Arkansas.

Khedira volleyed in a cross from Jerome Boateng in the 61st and Klose headed in a free kick from Oezil in the 68th as Sifakis was late to punch the ball away. Reus made it 4-1 in the 74th, volleying a shot in off the underside of the crossbar after Sifakis made a save on Klose. Salpigidis added a consolation penalty for Greece in the 89th. TRACK AND FIELD EUGENE, Ore. — Sanya Richards-Ross stepped over a puddle, ran hard for a few more steps, then jogged to the finish line for an easy win. A routine result Friday at the rain-drenched Olympic trials that left one of America’s biggest track stars with nothing to complain about. Richards-Ross ran her qualifying heat in the rain-drenched 400 meters in 51.69 seconds, winning by 0.55 seconds even though she jogged to the finish. Richards-Ross will also try to qualify in the 200 next week. A few minutes earlier, defending Olympic gold medalist LaShawn Merritt took to the rain-slickened track, sidestepped a runner who fell in the lane next to him and finished in 45.36 seconds, the best time in the men’s heats. Jeremy Wariner, the 2004 Olympic champion, also advanced to today’s semifinals, though his race wasn’t quite such a breeze. He finished third in his heat in a time of 45.84. David Neville, the 2008 Olympic bronze medalist, finished last in his heat and won’t go to London unless he is chosen for the relay team. The 400 runners have semifinals today, with finals scheduled for Sunday.

(Continued from Page 4) the following with regards to the change is taken from the Lincoln Highway Forum, the official organ of the Lincoln Highway Assn.: Since the original selection of the route in 1913, a direct shortcut road has been opened up, and is found to be the longest stretch without a turn on the Lincoln Highway between the two coasts. The change removes the Highway from the towns of Forest, Dunkirk, Dola, Ada and Lima and routes it through Williamstown, New Stark, Beaverdam and West Cairo, a distance of about eleven miles is saved and many turns avoided. “The change of the route has only been authorized by the Lincoln Highway Assn. after very careful investigation and after consultation with officers of the Motor Transportation Corps in Washington.” The new route will be immediately marked and will be followed by the transcontinental motor convoy, which leaves Washington, July 7th. The army is securing the shortest and most direct route between New York and San Francisco, and the Association will necessarily authorize any changes desired by the General Staff. This change will very likely mean that the Lincoln Way will pass directly through Delphos on Fifth street instead of coming in on Second and then down Main to Fifth. Fifth street forms a part of the old Ridge road or the DelphosBucyrus road. Delphos Herald, July 9, 1919 ---------Father and Son Injured in Accident Albert Kimmet, route 3, Delphos, and his son, John, 15, were injured Sunday morning in an automobile accident at First and Washington streets. Nickel Plate passenger train No. 16, northbound, struck the Chevrolet coach at the First street crossing at about 10 a.m. The passenger train due in Delphos at 6:05 a.m. was running late due to a derailment at Frankfort. The force of the impact threw Mr. Kimmet out of the door and he was thrown clear to the left of the track. His son, John, was thrown into the windshield. The auto was pushed from the track and crashed into a tree about 30 feet north oft he track, and was badly damaged. The injured were taken

into the home of Mr. and Mrs. J.B. Higgins, 103 North Washington street and a local physician was called. Mr. Kimmet had an injury to his ribs on the right side and also suffered an injury to the pelvis and bruises. John Kimmet sustained a fracture of the right collar bone, three severe scalp wounds and numerous cuts and bruises. He also suffered from shock. After treatment they were removed to their home. Delphos Herald, Mar. 15, 1937 ---------Imber Auto Sales A new 1937 Ford V-8 tudor belonging to Arthur Imber, East Fourth street, was stolen from in front of his home Sunday night and found later in a field between Delphos and Ft. Jennings, badly damaged. Mr. Imber parked the machine in front of his house around 8:30 p.m. and left the keys in the car. The auto was stolen a short time later. The car ran off the road at a curve, struck a highway sign post, plowed through a ditch and stopped in a field. The car was badly damaged and showed evidence of having turned over. Local police investigated the

accident but failed to find any important clues. Authorities felt that the thief was injured and doctors in the area are being questioned in an effort to locate the guilty party. A group of motorists state that they saw the wrecked car as early as 10:30 p.m. on Sunday night. Delphos Herald, Mar. 15, 1937 ---------Delphos High Team Leases Ball Grounds The Delphos High School baseball team has completed arrangements for the leasing of a ball grounds just off of south Pierce street for a term of three years.

Apr. 25, 1912 ---------Bids Received for Leasing of City Owned Land Eight bids were received for the leasing of 25 acres of land at the north edge of Delphos. The board of control let the bid Friday to Ed Dickman. City council passed legislation to lease the property for agricultural purposes. They requested that a clause be placed in the lease that the property could be reclaimed by the city for a manufacturing site, providing the city would pay the tenant for crops. George Rode has been living on the farm since its purchase by the city. The expiration of his lease forced council to release it. The property was purchased by the city for a dump ground and a site for a sewage disposal plant. The ground was leased for

The Herald – 9

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
SUNDAY, JUNE 24, 2012 It won’t surprise you to note that you might have to make some major revisions in your plans from time to time in the year ahead. The changes you make will be well thought out and could lead to the success previously denied you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Get going first thing if you can, because your level of effectiveness will be at its high point early in the day. It’ll diminish considerably as the hours wear on. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Although there will be plenty of material opportunities around you, you might not fully appreciate what any one of them has to offer. It’ll be your own fault if you get nothing out of this day. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It’s always best to let your innate philosophy emerge when dealing with others instead of espousing false beliefs. Sincerity wins every time -game-playing doesn’t. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be alert for an opportunity to substantially profit in some manner from an arrangement that another already has well underway. Chances are you could easily fit into the picture. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Even if a certain associate who is now in a position to help you says he or she will do so, don’t take the offer as a fait accompli. There may be unforeseen reasons why the aid won’t be forthcoming. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- There is a possibility that you might not be able to accomplish all you set out to do, because you’ll be biting off more than you can chew. Don’t try to work and play at the same time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- One of your best assets is the ability to win or lose with grace. You’ll prove this yet again when friends get a chance to observe your behavior. Stay true to yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Show that you have the courage of your convictions by doing what you believe to be best. If you are purposeful and conscientious, the end results will be to your satisfaction. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -The views and ideas of you and your mate are likely to be in harmony, yet as a couple you aren’t apt to produce anything of value. Be a doer, not just a thinker. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It isn’t likely that you won’t know how to make a good deal, both businesswise or personally, it’s simply that you’ll have too many places to use your windfall when you get it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Watch what you do or say when with family or you could thoughtlessly make them feel that you’re more concerned about outsiders than you are about your own kin. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If your level of competency turns out to be a notch or two above that of others in your company, don’t be a show-off or act arrogantly. Work at the collective pace. MONDAY, JUNE 25, 2012 You will have ample opportunities in the year ahead to build a number of new, valuable relationships. Some might even be developed with persons with whom you shared little in common previously. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Although you may rather work with your hands, mental assignments will be easier for you to handle. Now’s the time to catch up on your correspondence or clear away the clutter, so get cracking. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You know that engaging in some fun activities would greatly appease your appetite for socializing, yet you’ll buckle down and let your practicality run the show. Good for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t relegate your initiative and leadership qualities to the rear just to appease another, because it’ll end up being a big downer for you. Let that person deal with his or her own issues. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Generally, you like people around you when you work, but in order to function effectively today, you’ll require a quiet corner. Outside noises could be disturbing and run you off track. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- It stands to reason that those with whom you’ll feel the most at ease have similar ideals, interests and standards to yours. In your mind, others will have little to offer. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You have a tendency at times to pursue objectives with a comewhat-may attitude. However, you may be reluctant to take a chance, fearing it’ll lessen your possibilities for success. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) -- It behooves you to be philosophical as well as practical in your involvements with friends and/ or associates. This will help you sail smoothly over the shoals. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Take a little time to evaluate your assets in detail. Much to your surprise, you’re likely to discover that you have a lot more going for you than you thought. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You could be a great asset in a development that calls for a team effort. You won’t have any trouble pulling your own weight without disturbing the progress of your teammates. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You’re not one who often has the patience to fuss over small details, but fortunately that’s not true at this moment, making it an exceptional time to clear away the clutter or finetune some of your work. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Because you’re in such a friendly mood, you won’t mind socializing while working. In fact, it’ll help add a bit of light-heartedness to certain jobs that you normally dislike doing. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- When in the right mood, humble domestic tasks provide you with a certain amount of comfort. If you can, try to spend some time working around the house or in your garden.
