Relay events on tap for weekend

Relay tallies $64,000 toward

$88,000 goal

BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald

DELPHOS—This is the 11th year for the Delphos Relay For Life, which is an

18 hour organized overnight community-based walking and running fundraising event. The relay will begin at 6 p.m. and take place at the Arnold Scott Memorial Track at Jefferson Senior High School in Delphos. The history of the event started in May 1985 when Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Wash., ultimately raising $27,000 to help the American Cancer Society fight the nation’s biggest

health concern – cancer. A year later, 340 supporters joined the overnight event. Since those first steps, the Relay For Life movement has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, rais- ing more than $4 billion to fight cancer. Chairperson Cindy Metzger explained that the event is a year-round project and describes the relay as a “day in the life of a cancer patient. “We should surpass our million-dollar goal as we

look to our community to help us achieve donations of


Currently, the Delphos Relay For Life encompasses 20 teams and 170 individuals who have already raised close to $64,000 this year. The teams camp out around

a track and take turns walking around the track. Food, games

and activities provide entertain- ment and build camaraderie. At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor can- cer survivors, remember loved ones lost and fight back against

a disease that has already taken

too much. The funds raised through the relays make an impact in the fight against can- cer and the proof is that there are 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year. The opening ceremony kicks off the two-day relay with cancer survivors and care- givers taking the track for the first lap at 6:15 p.m. During the Survivors Lap, all cancer sur- vivors at the event take the first lap around the track, celebrat- ing their victory over cancer while cheered on by the other participants who line the track.

‘Bark For Life’ honors four-legged caregivers


DELPHOS— Dog lovers, as well as all animal lovers, are invited to enjoy the first- ever “Bark For Life” event taking place from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday at Leisure Park in Delphos. It is an event honoring the life-long contribu- tions of Canine Caregivers, to celebrate cancer survivor-ship, to honor people lost to cancer and to fund raise in support of cancer research,

education, advocacy and service. Canine com- panions demonstrate unconditional love, joy, security, compassion and no judgments of can- cer survivor’s abilities or appearances. The Delphos Animal Hospital is sponsoring the walk and its very own Dr. Bonnie Jones, D.V.M., who is chairing the event, is infusing her contagious enthusiasm into the project and is extremely excited about being part of the Relay for Life’s goal of reaching one million dollars in donations.

Jennings school facing $28,000 AC repair


FORT JENNINGS — Fort Jennings School Board met for their regularly-scheduled monthly meeting Wednesday night and discussed the repair of the air conditioning com- pressor. All-Temp Refrigeration’s quote of $28,000 will replace the broken com- pressor. Principal Nicholas Langhals said that the compressor went out last year and that now, since the school year is over, it can be replaced. The board accepted these dona- tions: $457.95 from the American Legion Post 715 for the school’s flags; $500 from Fort Jennings Soccer Boosters for fertilizer; and $300 from Fort Jennings Post Prom to the class of 2014. Council also approved the dona- tion of one-half of the remaining Class

of 2013 funds be given to Playing Hardball Against ALS (PHAALS) Foundation and the balance given to St. Joseph Jog for SIDS. Old business included the approval of the 2013-14 high school handbook, which had been revised; accepting the resignation of Andrea Mead as the assistant varsity girls basketball coach; recommending Eric Schwab as the varsity baseball coach for 2014; approval of the school kitchen for the band supper which will be held on Sept. 8; and the approval of OTES policy. “The OTES policy is a teacher evaluation policy that we will use when working with the teachers next year,” Langhals explained. There were four new recom- mended individuals approved to fill positions for the upcoming year and include: Alan “Jay” Laubenthal, who will teach grades 7-12 math and social studies and coach boys junior

varsity basketball; Rob Warnecke, who will serve as athletic event supervisor; Kevin Horstman, who will coach girls junior high basket- ball; and Alex Maag, who will be the assistant varsity coach for boys soccer. The board also approved three new resolutions, including renewal of the school insurance policy from SORSA for the 2013-14 school year, which cost a little more but received an increase in limits and liability. They also approved the contract with Northwest Physical Therapy for one year. “It’s the same as always and the

contract has been the same for the last few years,” Langhals explained. Council discussed the resolution of the end-of-the-year course exams in social studies courses to assess mastery of American History, which fulfills requirements set forth in S.B.


“This makes sure we are assess- ing students correctly. Our teacher has assessed materials and has incor- porated new materials — text of the Constitution, Federalist papers, etc. — to satisfy the requirements,” Langhals detailed. Council commended the girls state track team, including Kaitlin Stechschulte, Elaina Maag, Macy Schroeder, Lori Bruskotter and Emily Grone, for their fifth- and sixth-place finishes at state competition. In addition, members congratu- lated the Environthon Team for their state runner-up finish. “The team was tied for first place with 600 points,” Langhals explained. “During the tie-breaking part of the competition, they fell short by a few points.” Langhals gave a brief report on Race to the Top.

Actor James Gandolfini dies in Italy at age 51

LOS ANGELES (AP) — James Gandolfini, whose portray- al of a brutal, emotionally delicate mob boss in HBO’s “The Sopranos” helped create one of TV’s greatest drama series and turned the mobster stereotype on its head, died Wednesday in Italy. He was 51. Gandolfini died while on holiday in Rome, the cable chan- nel and Gandolfini’s managers Mark Armstrong and Nancy Sanders said in a joint statement. No cause of death was given. “He was a genius,” said “Sopranos” creator David Chase. “Anyone who saw him even in the smallest of his perfor- mances knows that. He is one of the greatest actors of this or any time. A great deal of that genius resided in those sad eyes.” Gandolfini, who won three Emmy Awards for his role as Tony Soprano, worked steadily in film and on stage after the series ended. He earned a 2009 Tony Award nomination for his role in the celebrated production of “God of Carnage.” “Our hearts are shattered and we will miss him deeply. He and his family were part of our family for many years and we are all grieving,” said managers Armstrong and Sanders. HBO called the actor a “special man, a great talent, but more importantly a gentle and loving person who treated everyone, no matter their title or position, with equal respect.” The channel expressed sympathy for his wife and children. Joe Gannascoli, who played Vito Spatafore on the HBO drama, said he was shocked and heartbroken. “Fifty-one and leaves a kid — he was newly married. His son is fatherless now … It’s way too young,” Gannascoli said. Gandolfini’s performance in “The Sopranos” was indel- ible and career-making, but he refused to be stereotyped as the bulky mobster who was a therapy patient, family man and apparently effortless killer. In a December 2012 interview with The Associated Press, a rare sit-down for the star who avoided the spotlight, he was upbeat about a slew of smaller roles following the breathtaking blackout ending in 2007 of “The Sopranos.” “I’m much more comfortable doing smaller things,” Gandolfini said in the interview. “I like them. I like the way they’re shot; they’re shot quickly. It’s all about the scripts — that’s what it is — and I’m getting some interesting little scripts.” He played Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta in Kathryn Bigelow’s Osama bin Laden hunt docudrama “Zero Dark Thirty.” He worked with Chase for the ’60s period drama “Not Fade Away,” in which he played the old-school father of a wan- nabe rocker. And in Andrew Dominick’s crime flick “Killing Them Softly,” he played an aged, washed-up hit man.

Local students to experience CampMed at University of Toledo

Information submitted

Teenagers today and potential physicians tomorrow will learn the tools of the trade and practice their clinical skills at the 16 th annual CampMed program at The University of Toledo. Local students and incoming high school freshmen Dylan Wiechart of Fort Jennings, Maizee Brinkman of Ottoville and Andrew Fickert of Middle Point, along with 33 others from northwest Ohio, will get a taste of medical school for two days participating in hands-on lessons making wrist casts and suturing wounds, as well as taking tours of Life Flight helicopters and Mobile ICU vehicles. “It’s imperative to reach out to young people early to nurture their interests in science and discovery. Their dreams for the future, which for some might include becoming a doctor, are

attainable and we want to show them there are people who want to help,” said Kathy Vasquez, director of the UT and Ohio Area Health Education Center (AHEC) programs and UT’s associate vice president for government relations. “CampMed gives students the opportunity to learn first-hand what it’s like to be in the medical field before they even start high school. The participants really enjoy learning from current students in the UT College of Medicine and Life Sciences.” The two-day CampMed program will be held today and Friday on the UT Health Science Campus. The camp is sponsored by the UT AHEC program, which along with other programs throughout the country, strives to improve the health of individuals and communities by develop- ing the healthcare workforce. UT medical students serve as camp counselors and the students also will interact with physicians and

professors. The students begin this morning after the welcoming ceremo- nies with a “Tools of the Trade” session where they learn to use medical instruments like blood pressure cuffs and stethoscopes. Lessons continue for two days learning CSI-style forensic sci- ence, experiencing what it’s like to suit up in surgical gear, tour- ing a gross anatomy lab and more. CampMed, which works to spark interest in the medical field for the students entering high school, began in 1998. The competitive program requires students to submit a letter of rec- ommendation, a nomination from a science or math teacher or counselor, and a personal essay to be chosen to participate. CampMed is a scholarship program at no cost to the students, most of whom are first generation-college, minority, rural and other underrepresented groups.

Poison hemlock, Downy brome causing problems

Poison hemlock

BY JAMES J. HOORMAN Ag educator OSU-Extension Putnam County

Poison hemlock (Conium maculatum) is a poisonous weed that has been found in Putnam County. Ed Lentz, Hancock County Extension Educator shares this infor- mation on Poison hemlock:

“Poison hemlock is now blooming along roadsides, edges of cultivated fields, stream banks and fence rows throughout our area. Poison hemlock is a noxious weed that is poisonous to animals

and to people. The flower stalks are about three to eight feet tall. Clusters of tiny white flowers are borne on struc- tures called umbels (look like upside-down umbrellas) on the upper part of the flower- ing stalks. Flowering season will last from now through August. Poison hemlock (Conium maculatum) is a non-native invasive weed that has a biennial (two-year) life cycle. It is a member of the carrot family, so it shares many characteristics with other weeds found in Ohio including native wild carrot,

also called Queen Anne’s Lace (Daucus carota) and wild parsnip (Pastinaca sati- va), a non-native plant. Wild parsnip has yellow flowers

tional seed production. Control methods include mowing, tilling or by using selective herbicides (2,4-D, dicamba, Crossbow) or non-

and wild hemlock and wild carrot both have white flow- ers. Poison hemlock may be distinguished from wild car- rot flowers by looking at the stem. Poison hemlock has purple spots or blotches and no hairs along the flower

Poison hemlock spreads by seed, which may be distributed by birds and rodents. It is best to control while in the rosette stage, particularly in the fall. However, control at this time of year will prevent addi-

extensive shallow root sys- tem that is competitive with winter wheat. Downy brome plants one to two inches tall can produce seed. Moderate (one to two plants per square foot) to heavy infestations of downy brome have reduced wheat yields 30-80 percent. Downy brome may reduce first cutting alfalfa by com- peting for early season mois-

ture and may severely reduce forage quality. Downy brome usually begins growing in the fall or early spring. In early spring the plant continues to til- ler, joints and sets seed. The plant grows from six to 24 inches tall. At emergence, leaves are about 1/32 of an inch wide and brownish- green. As the plant and seed reach maturity, leaves turn purplish-tan. Downy brome is best managed by eliminating seed sources to contain its spread and to kill existing weeds before they compete with wheat or hay. Crop rota- tion to corn is an effective

control measures. Downy brome seeds often are found in small grain and grass seed so plant clean seed. Control small patches or area infes- tations before they spread with glyphosate (Roundup ®) products. A glyphosate application followed by till- age seven to 15 days later or glyphosate followed by no-tillage are effective con- trol methods. Herbicides are more effective than tillage in moist spring soils and do not destroy additional residue.” (University of Nebraska, pg. 1-2). Now is the time to kill these weeds before wheat harvest spreads the seed across a field.

Under the Covers

with Sara Berelsman

Street. 11:30 a.m. Under the Covers with Sara Berelsman I decided to take a depar- ture

I decided to take a depar- ture from my usual book review format and start doing some Q & A with authors. I recently had the chance to interview Heather Osting, author of Dead in a Ditch, and ask her some questions about this page-turner. Osting’s first book takes place in Delphos, which is one of the reasons it is so original. She has made various public appearances and done local book sign-

ings recently. What follows below are the questions and answers I had a chance to ask Osting.

Q: I want to know what inspired the characters. A: Well, the main charac- ter’s modeled after myself, mostly because it’s just easier to write as if “I” were the one doing the things in the story. The other characters were loosely based on peo- ple I know — old school

teachers, people around town,

etc. I would just name the character, and then I’d go through my mind about what I thought that character would look like. Q: What inspired the


A: Well, the whole left for dead idea came in a couple ways. I was told growing up that I would be found “dead in a ditch” someday. So that’s where that came from and then the idea of waking up in the middle of nowhere beaten half to death came to me one day driving home from Ottawa. I was on my way home from work, several years ago, and the sun was shining on my cheek, and it was so warm and wonder- ful, and my imagination just grabbed that, and I closed my eyes and wondered what it would be like to wake up basking in the sunshine, thinking everything was won- derful, only to open my eyes and realize it wasn’t. The sun has a way of making every-

and realize it wasn’t. The sun has a way of making every- Heather Osting thing feel

thing feel all warm and cozy. My mind wanders a lot when I drive, so I always keep a pen and paper in my car just in case something comes to me. Q: So who told you you’d be dead in a ditch? A: My parents. We grew up at a campgrounds; my parents owned Woods and Waters and so there were always “strangers” around. I think they were afraid that our “public” business would bring people around that perhaps weren’t always 100 percent trustworthy. And of course when you grow up around that sort of business, you think everyone is nice and perfectly okay to trust. Q: Did anything inspire

the names of the charac- ters? A: Well, I always loved the name Vivienne but I was

born a “Heather,” so it’s fun to give your characters the name you wish your parents would’ve named you. My mom in the book is named after an eland, which she raised when we had our zoo. The name “Knox” I got by brainstorming names of cit- ies. I knew Knox’s real name wasn’t going to be “Knox,” so I looked for something that would just be his “biker name.” I will research all sorts of names when trying to name a character. Sometimes

I go through the phone book,

other times I think of names of booze, or cities, or even soldier names of people who died in the Civil War. I’m intent on getting “the perfect” name for my characters at times. Q: Did you always know this book would become a trilogy? A: No, I didn’t. But when

I finished book No. 1, I was

like, that was fun; I’m ready to write another. And I per- sonally love a good series of books; you get so much more out of a series than just one novel. You get to know your characters inside and out and when you’re left wanting more it’s awesome to know that you’re going to get more. I honestly don’t know how many books in the series there will be. I have two written and am working on a third.

I had a fun time reading Osting’s book and chatting with her. If you get a chance, pick up a copy of Dead in a Ditch for some good beach reading this summer. Look for her next book, The Ordeal, to come out in July. Happy reading.

Knights pound Blue Jays in twinbill

By NICK JOHNSON Staff Writer

CONVOY - The Crestview Knights swept both ends of Wednesday’s ACME doublehead- er over St. John’s at Crestview Sports Complex 15-4 and 11-2. Crestview was the home team for the first matchup. In the bottom of the first inning, the Knights put three runs on the board, two of them coming off the bat of Jordan Roop’s single, to make the score 3-0. The Blue Jays got a run back in the top of the second inning when Ben Wrasman tripled to lead off and scored on an RBI groundout by Kyle Pohlman to make the score 3-1, Knights. In the bottom of the second frame, Crestview struck for six runs, including a three-run dou- ble by Damian Helm and a sacrifice fly from Adrian Camp, to push the Knight lead to 9-1. St. John’s got another run in the top of the third when Andy May reached base via an error and came around to score on a Wrasman single to make the score 9-2. In the bottom of the third, Crestview got three runs off the bat of Isaiah Simerman — a three-run bomb to left-centerfield — to extend their lead to 12-2. The Blue Jays scored again in the top of the fourth inning when May and Austin Heiing drove in runs to cut the Knight lead to 12-4. Crestview put a three spot up in the fourth frame as Bryce Richardson singled home two runs. After Elliot Callow retired three straight

batters in the top of the fifth, Crestview had its first-game triumph. In the second game, with the Knights as the visitors, Crestview got on the board early with

a two-run single by Nathan Owens to make the

score 2-0. Delphos got a back a run in the first inning with a base-on-balls by May, who came around to dent the plate when Wrasman singled to cut the deficit to 2-1, Crestview. Crestview got three runs in the third frame,

groundout to the shortstop ended the game and the twin-bill sweep. “Our problem is we stranded a lot of run- ners on base and our pitchers walked a lot of batters. We can’t give up free passes,” Jays head coach Mark Slate said. “In the second game, we hit the ball a little better. We started to come around; hopefully, we waited till they had their faster pitcher in there but we got some bat on the balls. We have a young team and the guys are learning; they are getting better every game and hope it comes together around tournament time.” Crestview (6-0) visits Lincolnview 6 p.m. Friday. “Really pleased with Elliot Callow’s out- ing; he throw well for five innings and we had some timely hitting and the defense was solid behind him,” Crestview coach Jeff Helm said. “We were really striking the ball well but it didn’t always result in a hit. Good outing by Justin in the second game; it was the first time we have thrown him this year. He got some run support and was able to relax and throw strikes. We needed a little better defense in the second game but we still got the win.” The Blue Jays (1-5) are slated to host Jefferson Friday but will now host them 4 p.m. Monday as part of a doubleheader.

Rice hurls Wildcats past Lancers in ACME

By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer

DELPHOS — Tyler Rice, the ace of the Jefferson spring baseball team, lived up to that billing Wednesday night at Wildcat Field as he threw a complete game against Lincolnview and grabbed

a 5-3 ACME summer-baseball triumph. Rice threw 106 pitches (75 for strikes) as he ceded eight hits and three runs (one earned), walking none and fanning seven as the Wildcats finally had a more- complete team in improving to 1-6. The Lancers threw a trio of pitch- ers: starter Austin Leeth (three innings, eight hits, two earned runs, two walks, two Ks), losing reliever Kyle Williams (one IP, one hit, three BBs, three earned runs) and lefty Dalton Hines (two IPs, one walk). The Lancers led 3-2 to start the bottom of the fourth when the Wildcats rallied with a three spot. With one down, Gage Mercer (2-for-3, two runs scored) walked and Adam Rode (2-for-2) sacrificed. Back-to-back bases-on-balls to Austin Jettinghoff and Tyler Talboom loaded the bases. Rice unloaded with a full-count bases-clearing three-run double down the left-field line. Lincolnview got a two-out single to right center by Conner McCleery in the fifth. Troy Patterson beat out an infield hit up the middle with one down in the Lancer sixth and advanced on a come- backer by Leeth. The Wildcats left two on in the sixth:

one-out hit batter (Rode) and two-out walk (Talboom) and a wild pitch. The visitors scored once in the visiting first. With one out, Eli Farmer got aboard on an error, stole second and scored on a two-out tough-bounce single by McCleery (2-for-3) that handcuffed third sacker Damien Dudgeon. The Red and White loaded the bases in the bottom of the first. Mercer led off with a single but was caught stealing by Tyler Richey. Rode singled, Jettinghoff doubled and Talboom (three walks) walked. However, Leeth got out of the inning without ceding a run.

allowed the bases to be loaded. Two outs later, Farmer beat out an infield hit to short that scored Youtsey but Patterson was gunned down at home trying to score by Jordan Herron. Delphos tied it in the second. Dudgeon singled up the gut but was eliminated on a one-out grounder by Ryan Goergens. Mercer got aboard on

a wicked-hop single that hit shortstop

Williams in the face and got to the out- field. A wild pitch advanced both and both scored on a chopper up the middle by Rode. Derek Friesner singled to commence the visiting third and advanced to sec- ond on a one-out comebacker by Jalen Roberts. Delphos missed a chance to add to its lead in the home third. With one gone, Rice (2-for-4, three RBIs) singled to left and Herron singled to left center. Dudgeon walked to juice the bases but Kurt Wollenhaupt bounced into a 1-2-3 double play. The visitors scored their final tally in the fourth to make it 3-2. Patterson beat out an infield hit to the hole at deep short and pinch-runner Cole Schmersal stole second. A 1-out wild pitch moved him to third and he scored on a groundout to short by Richey. Jefferson hosts Columbus Grove 6 p.m. today; Lincolnview hosts Van Wert

Masterson, Brantley lead Indians past Royals 6-3

By TOM WITHERS Associated Press

CLEVELAND — Justin Masterson managed to hang around for 6 1/3 innings and win for the sixth time at home, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 6-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night. Masterson (9-5) side- stepped some early trouble without giving up any runs and improved to 6-1 with a 2.29 ERA in nine starts at Progressive Field. The right- hander struck out eight while allowing two runs and nine hits. Michael Brantley hit a pair of solo homers for the Indians. Mike Aviles drove in two runs and Michael Bourn scored twice for Cleveland. Unable to get a hit for four

scored twice for Cleveland. Unable to get a hit for four innings off Luis Mendoza (2-4),

innings off Luis Mendoza (2-4), Brantley homered in the fifth and the Indians added three runs in the sixth. Brantley connected again in the eighth. It wasn’t a certainty he would survive the first few innings as the Royals put two runners on in the first and second but failed to score. Kansas City stranded eight runners in the first five innings and Masterson got

a big defensive play by first baseman Mark Reynolds to get out of a pickle in the fourth. Masterson was lifted in the seventh. The Indians chased Mendoza during their 3-run sixth. With two on and none out, Aviles hit a ball to deep left that probably should have been caught by Alex Gordon but the 2-time Gold Glove winner dropped it, allowing Drew Stubbs to score and tie it at 2. Jason Kipnis fol- lowed with a well-timed bunt single to load the bases and Mendoza threw four straight balls to Carlos Santana, forc- ing in Bourn with the go- ahead run. Tim Collins then came in and allowed Brantley’s sac- rifice fly that made it 4-2 but after giving up a single,

he struck out pinch-hitter Ryan Raburn and got Lonnie Chisenhall on a groundout.

However, the Indians tacked on an insurance run in the seventh when Bourn dou- bled, stole third and scored on Aviles’ fly ball to right. Cleveland also got solid relief work from Bryan Shaw, who pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings. The Royals finally pushed

a run across in the fourth. David Lough singled with one out and Mike Moustakas doubled. Elliot Johnson fol- lowed with an RBI single but Masterson struck out Alcides Escobar and Reynolds dived

to his right to snag Gordon’s

liner and rob him of a 2-run double.

The Royals made it 2-0 in the fifth on Lough’s RBI single.

By JIM METCALFE Staff Writer

As Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra was quoted after Tuesday night’s overtime victory over San Antonio in Game

6 of the NBA Finals, the two best words of a 7-game series is upon us today: Game 7! It has befixed and befuddled me throughout this series as to hoe many times either the Spurts were considered too old and feeble — done! — or the Heat were ready to be broken up because Chris Bosh was playing horribly and Dwayne Wade was done physically.

I have never seen as many “hands” — as in on one hand …

and on the other … in all my born days. Did anyone NOT think this was going to be the case? Let’s look at the start of the series: Miami had beaten a much-overmatched Milwaukee Bucks team (these are not the days of Lew Alcindor!) and then they got a clear blessing by playing a Derek Rose-less — and during the series, a Luol Dang and Joachim Noah-less — Chicago Bulls team. They were extended to seven games by the Indiana Pacers and their tag-team of big men in Roy Hibbert and David West that gave the undersized Heat a dickens of a problem. That brings them to the Spurs, who have some legit big men to contend with, especially Tim Duncan. The Spurs swept the Grizzlies — a team that presented its own matchup problems with its big men of Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph and had been blessed to beat an Oklahoma City franchise without star point guard Russell Westbrook. For a while, one wonder if the Spurs would be healthy enough to get this far — again, to the benefit of the Heat — but they are. Personally, I have not watched many minutes of this series but I have watched the aftermath — the pundits, analysts and such — and it’s been kind of funny. If the Heat don’t win, many are saying this mars LeBron’s legacy because he will be 1-3 in the championship round — as

well as the Big Three’s legacy because they will be 1-2 together. LeBron is considered the best player on the planet and has been for the past few seasons, so I really don’t see that legacy tarnished. If he loses tonight, there is something to be written on that because the great players in the NBA haven’t necessarily been stacked up by how many individual points/rebounds, etc., they have but how many rings. On the other hand — no pun intended! — if the Spurs lose, this may very well be the swan song of their Big Three in Duncan, 36-year-old (and playing like HE is done!) Manu Ginobili and ring- leader Tony Parker. This may be Duncan’s last legitimate chance at a ring because he rides off into the sunset. Who has the most pressure in this regard? Duncan because Father Time is not on his side and he already has his recognition as the greatest power forward in NBA history. However, I think LeBron may have the most pressure over- all because of the promises that were made of multiple (more than 2 or 3) titles when he and Bosh signed on and with the possibility — at least he has talked about it — he will return to Cleveland next summer. Personally, my head and my heart are rooting for the Spurs — not because I dislike LeBron and Company but because of

my utmost respect for The Big Fundamental. He has quietly

and efficiently become a unanimous first-ballot Hall-of-Famer by letting his play do all the talking. He didn’t have to point to himself or act like he was the big cheese when he made plays but acted like he’d been there before and would be again; I like that. Expect Wade, Bosh, Manu and the rest to be at the top of

their games for this winner-take-all.

I don’t have as big of a mea culpa this week.

I wrote that Lance Kiffin was the head football coach at the University of Southern California. It actually is Lane Kiffin.

Bipartisan proposal on student loans circulating

WASHINGTON (AP) — Students applying for financial aid for the coming school year could find some comfort in a bipartisan student loan compro- mise taking shape in the Senate that would prevent interest rates from doubling and set a single rate each year for undergraduate students, rich or poor. Interest rates, which would be tied to the financial markets, would rise slightly to 3.8 percent for low-income students receiv- ing new subsidized Stafford loans this year but not double as they’re scheduled to do July 1. Despite the increase, the rate is still lower than the 6.8 percent students would face absent congressional action. The current rate is 3.4 percent. More affluent undergraduates would see a bigger decline; the interest rate on new unsubsidized loans would drop from 6.8 percent to 3.8 percent under current mar- ket conditions. Rates for all new federal stu- dent loans would vary from year to year, according to the finan-

cial markets. But once students received a loan, the interest rate would be set for the life of that year’s loan. Rates for parents and graduate students also would be tied to the markets. Congress is grappling with student loans for the second straight year, with each party pointing fingers at the other about who would shoulder the blame if rates double. The House passed legislation that also ties rates to the markets but the Senate earlier this month voted down two competing pro- posals. The latest Senate compro- mise, developed during conver- sations among Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Republican Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and independent Sen. Angus King of Maine, was being passed among offices. None of them publicly committed to the plan until they heard back from the Congressional Budget Office about how much the proposal

would cost. A day earlier, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told reporters negotiations were afoot and pre- dicted a deal could be reached. He mentioned talking with Manchin and King, as well as Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Jack Reed of Rhode Island. “The last 24 hours, I’ve spent hours working with interested senators,” Reid said Tuesday. “We’re not there yet,” he added. Education Secretary Arne Duncan and White House eco- nomic adviser Gene Sperling would have lunch with senators today, Reid said. Republicans, meanwhile, have been unrelenting in their criti- cism of Democrats for opposing tenets of Obama’s student loan proposal, chiefly rates that change every year to reflect the markets. Without action, Republicans said, students were left not knowing how much they would be paying for classes this fall.

House votes to cut food stamps by $2 billion

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House voted on Wednesday to cut food stamps by $2 billion a year as part of a wide- ranging farm bill. The chamber rejected 234-188 a Democratic amendment to the five-

year, half-trillion-dollar farm legisla- tion that would have maintained current spending on food stamps, now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP. The overall bill cuts the $80 billion-a-year program by about

3 percent and makes it harder for some people to qualify. The food stamp cuts have complicated

passage of the bill and its farm-state sup- porters were working to secure votes Wednesday. Many conservatives have said the food stamp cuts do not go far enough since the program has doubled in cost in the last five years and now feeds

1 in 7 Americans. Liberals have argued

against any reductions, contending the House plan could take as many as 2 mil- lion needy recipients off the rolls. The White House has threatened a veto over the food stamp cuts. The amendment by Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., and other Democrats would have eliminated the SNAP cuts and taken the money from farm subsidies instead.

“It’s too big, it’s too harsh and it’s going to hurt so many people,” McGovern said of the food aid cuts. Also complicating passage is growing Republican opposition to farm subsidies, some of which are expanded under the bill. Republicans have proposed amend- ments that would cut back dairy and sugar supports that could turn lawmakers from certain regions of the country against the bill if they were to succeed. The House is scheduled to continue voting on 103 amendments to the bill today with a vote on passage possibly next week. As of Wednesday, it was unclear if Republicans had enough votes. In an effort to push the legislation through, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said last week that he would vote for it, while making it clear that he did not really like it. He said he wants to get the bill to House and Senate negotiators for a potential deal, and that passing the bill was better than doing nothing. The legislation would cut around $4 billion a year in overall spending on farm and nutrition programs. The Senate passed its version of the farm bill last week, with about $2.4 billion a year in overall cuts and a $400 million annual decrease in the SNAP program - about a fifth of the amount of the House food stamp cuts.

name, photo, message or drawing in memory

or honor of a friend or loved one who has been

affected by cancer. Luminaria can also be dedi- cated in support of a Relay participant.

“OTES was just approved earlier in the meeting and the

scope of work for year four is ready for the upcoming school year,” Langhals said. The next school board

meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. on July 31 in the high school library.

Bark For Life will be an opportunity for people to be empowered through their canine companion partner-

ships, share quality time with

a canine best friend, and

make new canine and human friends. “Who among us has not

been touched by cancer?” Jones asked. “Everybody should join

the fight against cancer.”

The heart of the Bark For Life is the relationship between survivors and their canine companions. Every family, co-worker, friend or community member who has been close to a cancer experi- ence and has a dog in their

life is invited to support the American Cancer Society by registering and fund raising through the Bark For Life. Pre-registration for the dog walk is $10 and registration

on the day of the event is $15,

which includes a colorful pur- ple bandanna for the canine. Registration can be com- pleted at the Delphos Animal Hospital and Paw Prints can also be purchased there for $1. The animal hospital’s team captains, comprised of clients

Jones describes Leisure

Park as the “best-kept little secret” in Delphos. The envi- ronment will be very favor- able for pets, their owners and everyone participating in the event. Aside from the three large shaded areas, wide open spaces, public restrooms and shelter house, there will be plenty of refreshments avail- able—for a small donation— and includes ice cream from the Creamery and hot dogs. The walk will open with Pastor Brian Knoderer per- forming the blessing of the animals, followed by remarks by Grand Marshal Bob Ulm, who will have his guide dog, Pippa, by his side. Ulm has been adversely affected by cancer. At 11 months of age, he lost his sight because of it. The same retinal cancer resulted in the loss of vision in one eye for three of his five sisters and his daughter, Gina, during child- hood. He also lost his father, William Ulm, and a sister, Sue Hickey, to cancer. Throughout the park there will be dog-oriented booths,

Raffle tickets will be avail- able for baskets of dog items and there will be prizes for the team that raises the most donations. Lima Police officer John Dunham will bring a police dog for a drug detection demonstration and the Allen County Humane Society’s Director Michael Ley will also be on hand. Jones shared the fact that she is the daughter and daugh- ter-in-law of cancer victims. “I hope to see a cure for cancer in my lifetime,” Jones said profoundly. “If I don’t see a cure for cancer in my lifetime, animals will always be the best medicine for me.” Bark For Life gives cancer survivors a chance to partici- pate and be empowered in the fight against cancer. It is a perfect way for all people— survivors and animal lovers— to feel comfortable socializing with their dogs. “It is a day of recognizing pets as caregivers, the impor- tance of them in our lives and having fun,” Jones said with enthusiasm. A rain date has been sched- uled for June 29th. Leisure Park is located at 625 Lima Ave. in Delphos.

Grandparents believe ‘Hayden’ deserves better

Dear Annie: Our old- est son, “Adam,” lives two hours away with his wife, “Eve,” and their three chil- dren. One child, “Hayden,” is Eve’s from a prior re- lationship. She married Adam when the boy was 3.

The biological father is ir- responsible and alcoholic but loves Hayden and sees him when he can. Hayden is now 13 and a good student, and he works hard to please his par- ents. We love and cherish him and consider him our own grandson. But we are heart- sick that Adam and Eve seem to single him out

for unkind treat-

ment. They take him to task constantly for minor infractions. They fling insults and belittling comments at him. He is scolded for the tone of his voice, his posture, manner- isms and nearly everything he says. His parents some- times make him stand in a corner. It’s humiliating for him. His siblings are not treated this way. Hayden is basically a good and decent boy, and his parents seem to resent him. We are worried sick that if this treatment con- tinues, he will rebel, and we won’t like the conse- quences. Hayden deserves better. Is there anything we can do to help without of- fending my son? We once brought this up, and they resented our intrusion. We hesitate to take that road again. What can we do? — Worried Grandparents Dear Grandparents:

Belittling, insulting and hu- miliating one’s child — at any age — is angry, inap- propriate parenting. Since your son and his wife do

not want your input, we suggest you offer to take Hayden for weekends or over the summer for a

couple of weeks (or more) if you can manage it. He and his parents could use

see that the two home- schoolers were having trou- ble both writing and read-

ing. I finally asked what the problem was, and they said they had never been taught

to write in script. These are

smart boys, but I worry this could be a real handicap for them in life. Should I talk with their mother or just let

go? —Feeling Sorry in Vermont Dear Ver- mont: Fewer and fewer students are learning to read or write in script. With all the key- boards around, penmanship is rarely taught, and script writing has become a lost art. Will it handicap


they have to read

a note from Grandma, but

otherwise, it’s unlikely. By the time they are looking for a full-time job, most of their peers will be in the same boat. Dear Annie: I must take exception to one of your suggestions to “Perplexed,” whose father insisted on hearing his voice every day. I think it is ridiculous to expect adult children to

call their parents every day. I am a parent of a wonder- ful grown son and lovely daughter-in-law. I would NEVER expect them to call me every day. I would never be intrusive and barge in on them without calling first. Why do we allow family members to treat each other inconsiderately and without respect when we wouldn’t treat others this way? Par- ents need to respect that their child’s spouse and children come first. The kids might want to call or be with their parents more

if it is not such a burden.

isn’t a substitute for bet-

ter parenting, but it will help. You also can suggest to Hayden that he speak to you, his school counselor or favorite teacher when- ever he needs to talk. Dear Annie: We often have two delightful boys over to our house to play with our two sons. These boys are teenagers. We’ve known them for years. They are being home-schooled by their very caring mother. For the first time, the four boys were playing a game that required writing answers and reading them. As I observed them, I could



By Bernice Bede Osol

FRIDAY, JUNE 21, 2013

Both tangible and intangible benefits can be gained in the year ahead by taking your ideas to the marketplace. However, you must have total confidence in your plan. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Before assuming someone else’s responsibilities, make sure your own house is in order. Chances are, you won’t be able to meet the demands of both situations. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- In

hopes of making a good deal even better, you might do something that dilutes your position instead of

strengthening it. It’s imperative that you know when to stop. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) --

Do your part to keep outsiders out of confidential family matters. Anyone who does not share your roof should not be permitted to share the household’s secrets. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Just because someone isn’t in complete accord with your opinions doesn’t mean that he or she should be considered to be an adversary. Try to learn from the dispute. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Be careful in situations where you feel unduly pressured to reveal something or make a concession.

If you’re foolishly open with the

wrong person, you could feel like a

patsy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-

Dec. 21) -- Partial success is likely

to be the best you can hope for if

you attempt to do too many things.

Do what you can to reduce your workload so that you can be more effective.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Guard against inclinations

to make unreasonable demands on

your loved ones. If they’re unable to comply with your expectations, it’ll

be your fault if feelings are hurt.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Playing favorites with your

friends is likely to create all kinds of complications. It could even jeopardize an important relationship if you’re not careful. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) --

If you feel you have to protect your

interests at the expense of another,

you’re barking up the wrong tree. Don’t be afraid to change course. ARIES (March 21-April 19) --

Be careful in whom you place your trust. Face-to-face, associates might appear to agree with your ideas. But they could express an adverse opinion behind your back. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Commercial conditions are a bit unsettled, so be careful when conducting business. If you make a wrong move, it might go unnoticed until it’s too late to fix things. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The only way you’re going to settle an important situation is through

a compromise. Be open-minded,

because the advantage you thought

you had is a will-o’-the-wisp.
