DELPHOS There is a light at the end of
the tunnel for Delphoss workforce that has been
observing a 3-hour weekly furlough since Sept.

30, 2013.
Mayor Michael Gallmeier introduced legislation to
put all administration and department heads back on a
40-hour work week at Mondays council meeting.
Its time to get everyone back to work full
time, Gallmeier said. The auditor thinks the
money is there.

Gallmeier said the shortened work week has led


to a lack of preventative maintenance and he fears
the water and wastewater treatment plants are suffering because of it.
We dont want to waste money on those plants.
We have to do the preventative maintenance. We
dont want them to fall apart, Gallmeier stressed.
More importantly, Gallmeier said employee
morale needs a boost and the city has begun to start
losing key personnel.
Weve already shifted some employees around
to cover Tim Williams resignation at the water
treatment plant, he added.
Williams announced his resignation earlier
in December. Auxiliary police officer Brandon
Hemker and Paramedic Brandon Perinne also
resigned.
The reduction in hours affected 27 city employees. Fire and rescue and police employees were not
included in the furloughs.
Gallmeiers legislation to establish the pay salary for administration and department supervisors
replaces an ordinance put in place in September
2013 to reduce their pay by 7.5 percent to bring
them in line with hourly workers whose hours were
reduced from 40 to 37 per week. If passed, it will
take affect on Jan. 19.

Delphos, Ohio

ELIDA Addressing a virtually-universal concern during


Tuesday nights meeting, the Elida
Board of Education discussed
school safety and the possibility
of an armed presence within the
districts schools.
As part of its agenda, the board
was presented with a resolution
directing Superintendent Tony
Cox to establish a committee to
review, study and recommend
to the Board a safety plan that
includes an analysis of utilizing
approved volunteers to convey
deadly weapons or dangerous ordnance into Elidas school safety
zone and/or to possess a deadly

weapon or dangerous ordnance


in Elidas school safety zone for
the welfare and safety of the students.
Ironically, parents of elementary-aged students in the Elida
school district were alerted to a
lock-down at the elementary
school earlier that day. While the
lock-down was the consequence
of an irate parents insistent attitude and had nothing to do with
violence, gun or otherwise, proponents of the plan were quick to
point to the action while encouraging the boards support.
Im a life-long resident of
Elida schools, Chad Bryan said
to the board during its public
participation. I have two children that are in school as well
and just like anyone else who

has children in school today, we


also received the notification of
a sudden lock-down at the elementary school. I am in support
of looking at further enhancing
our safety policies here at Elida.
This is not the Elida schools of
1994 when I graduated. The community has changed. The demographic has changed. Society has
changed and as you look into
this, I encourage you to do everything possible to keep the kids in
this school district safe.
Bryan was one of five speakers
to address the board on the subject,
all of whom were in support of the
measure. And while the need for
exhaustive training was emphasized, each speaker addressed
the change in society and its citizens, laying these changes before

the board as proof positive of


the increasing need for an armed
response.
I graduated from Elida High
School in 1971, said Mike Ulrich.
That was a time when teachers
were able to concentrate on teaching. That was a time when hunting
shotguns and rifles were common
sights in the gun racks of pickup
trucks or tucked away in the trunks
of cars in the school parking lot.
But that was then, this is now. Now
we send our kids off to school and
worry that they may be attacked
with deadly weapons.
After its reading, the board
quickly and unanimously approved
the resolution and directed Cox to
immediately address the issue.

CAP holds Wreaths Across America ceremony


INFORMATION SUBMITTED

VAN WERT The Van Wert Civil Air


Patrol Unit #296, along with the Van Wert
American Legion, Van Wert VFW, DAV
(Disabled American Veterans), and the
Convoy American Legion performed its fifth
annual Wreaths Across America ceremony at
the Woodland Cemetery in Van Wert, Ohio,
on Saturday, December 13.
After the ceremony, the Van Wert Civil Air
Patrol cadets placed the 162 wreaths that they
sold on local veterans graves. This event is a
simultaneous ceremony and was held in 1,015
cemeteries and memorial sites in all 50 states
in the United States (and 40 foreign locations) to pay tribute to the 25 million men and
women who have served in the U.S. armed
forces. All wreaths were handmade from the
Worcester Wreath Co. in Harrington, Maine,
and shipped to all the locations. A convoy of
150 semis driven by volunteer truck drivers
and donated equipment delivered the wreaths.
A total of 230,000 wreaths were placed at
the Arlington National Cemetery. This was
the first year that every section of Arlington
National Cemetery was able to be covered. In
all, 700,000 remembrance wreaths were laid.
Twenty three years ago, Morrill Worcester
of the Worcester Wreath Co. donated the first
wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery, starting an annual tradition that continues today
as Wreaths Across America. The initiative
began in 2006 as an offshoot of Worcesters
Arlington National Cemetery wreath project.
Since its inception years ago, Wreaths Across
America has experienced tremendous growth.
The local observance began as C/2dLt
Bryce Beckner asked for a moment of silence
to remember the fallen, prisoners of war,
missing in action, and honor those who have
served and are currently serving in this great
nations armed services. C/2dL Drew Bogle
then introduced the color guard and led the
Pledge of Allegiance. The Van Wert Disabled
American Veterans and Van Wertt VFW posted the colors to begin the ceremony. U.S.
Army Sgt. Dennis McCoy said the prayer.
Then C/CMSgt Caleb Mays gave the
opening remarks explaining the importance
of remembering all those who have served.
Bogle thanked all men and women who
served our country and asked that we always
thank a veteran. C/SSgt Connor Army quoted

2014 attorney general candidate had locked up a majority of the 148 votes needed to
win the election by the partys
executive committee.
I am extremely humbled
and grateful to have the confidence of the executive committee to serve as the partys
next chairman, Pepper said in
a statement. Going forward,
the party and our candidates
will be focused like a laser on
the issues that matter most to
Ohioans, such as increasing
wages and fighting for a firstrate public education system.
Pepper had received numerous endorsements in the runup to the election to replace
Chairman Chris Redfern and
has worked in tandem with Nina
Turner, a state senator and 2014
secretary of state candidate.
On Monday, former lieutenant governor candidate Sharen
Neuhardt dropped out of the
race for Redferns position.
Redfern, chairman since 2005,
announced his resignation on
election night after acrossthe-board statewide defeats
and losses in the Republicancontrolled Ohio House, including his own seat.
Neuhardt said Pepper had the
support to win and she wanted
to bring people together.
But, as she stepped aside,
Neuhardt brought up some
tough issues Pepper will need
to confront. She accused the
party of lacking good governance policies, including
clear parameters on ethics and
conflicts of interest. Neuhardt
called these the kind of governance policies that any wellrespected business or nonprofit
entity would have had in place
for years, but which the ODP
has neglected to adopt.
Among the concerns of
Neuhardt, the endorsed candidate of Ohios top elected
Democrat, U.S. Sen. Sherrod
Brown:
$2 million in party debt
unknown to the executive
committee;
Salaries and other benefits being paid to party officials
without prior authorization;
Referral fees, commissions or other payments made
to party employees, officials or
their affiliates by vendors;
The lack of an annual
audit process.

Gardener volunteer this winter
INFORMATION SUBMITTED
VAN WERT The Master Gardener
Volunteer (MGV) Program is a national
and international organization designed to
provide opportunities for gardening enthusiasts of all types and levels to acquire
training in numerous aspects of gardening and landscaping, to develop long-lasting friendships with other
MGVs, to learn from other
MGVs, and to provide an
outlet for those who wish
to serve their communities
through a unique form of
volunteering. Ohio State
University MGVs work
together with The Ohio State
University Extension to provide such services to their
communities as answering
gardening questions, beautifying the community, developing community or demonstration gardens, and other horticultural
activities.
Applications are being accepted for the
MGV Training Class of 2015. OSU MGVs
are initially given 50 hours of training on
information pertaining to gardens, landscapes, plants, diseases, insects and more!
But the training does not stop after the
initial training programs. Opportunities for
many types of continuing education are
provided through multiple training programs offered through OSU Extension both
locally and statewide. After the training
class is completed, new MGV interns are
to provide 50 hours of volunteer service

to the community as volunteer educators.


Even though this sounds like a lot of time,
it is not difficult to fulfill this requirement.
In fact most quickly exceed this number
long before the end of their first year of
service.
Van Wert County MGVs have developed The Childrens Garden, located in
Smiley Park on Old Tile Factory Road in
Van Wert, to provide an outdoor learning lab for children of all ages. Additional
projects include: an annual
plant sale, semi-annual garden tour, The Garden of the
Senses in downtown Van
Wert and more.
The orientation meeting
for MGV training for Van
Wert County will be held at
6:30 p.m. Jan. 22, 2015, at
the OSU meeting room on the fairgrounds,
1055 S. Washington St., Van Wert. Training
will be held from 6:30-9:30 p.m. each
Monday and Thursday in January through
March 12, 2015. All classes will be held
at the OSU Extension Office in Van Wert.
Classes will cover a multitude of topics
including: basic botany, soil science, fruits
and vegetables, diagnostics, herbs, annuals
and perennials, trees and shrubs, entomology, houseplants, landscape maintenance,
plant pathology, and pesticide safety and use.
For more information on cost and how
to obtain an application for the MGV program in Van Wert County contact Curtis
E. Young at 419-238-1214 or email at
young.2@osu.edu.

Health agency confirms flu death


COLUMBUS (AP) A wave of flu illnesses has forced
some Ohio schools to shut down over the past week and
one even asked parents if they could volunteer and to help
disinfect the school while students were kept home.
The Ohio Department of Health confirmed the first flurelated pediatric death of the flu season, saying that a 15-yearold girl from Ironton in southern Ohio died on Nov. 29 after
being admitted to a hospital.
Across the state, 456 people had been hospitalized with the
flu this year compared with 135 cases at this time last year,
the department said.
Schools in the Cleveland and Toledo areas have been
closed over the past week because of the large number of flu
illnesses.

the midwife, because Barbara was being born.


Happy birthday wishes to Barbara!
Christmas is only a couple weeks away.
Joe and I did
some shopping
on Saturday.
Verena is wrapping some of
the gifts this
afternoon.
I
dont
mind
that job, but it
seems I always
have something
else that needs
to be done. I
have a meeting
at the school
this afternoon.
I would like
to thank Carol
from Washington for the four 1,000-piece
puzzles she sent. We will have lots of fun
putting them together this winter. And also
a thank you to all the rest of you readers for
your encouraging letters!
This week Im going to share my recipe
for popcorn balls. Mother made these every
Christmas. She would put red food coloring
in the syrup to give them a reddish color. I
usually do half of them with red food coloring
and half with green. It gives them a Christmas
look during the holidays.
Gods blessings to all!
Popcorn Balls
2 1/2 quarts of popcorn (popped)
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
food coloring (optional)
Cook sugar, water, salt, and syrup to a very
hard-ball stage (256 degrees). Add vinegar
and vanilla (and food coloring if desired) to
light crack stage (270 degrees). Pour slowly
over popcorn. Mix well to coat every kernel.
Press into balls and cool.

First of all, a happy 17th birthday to


daughter
Verena today,
Dec. 10. How
could those
17 years have
gone by so
fast? I am glad
to have Verena
here at home
during
the
day. Its good
to have someone to help
me with cooking, cleaning,
laundry, sewing, and all
that goes with
keeping a house going with a family of ten.
Every one of the girls has helped me before
getting a full-time job. This is a precious time
to me: spending time with my daughters and
making a lot of memories together that we
will always treasure.
It is also a great learning experience for
them to learn how to do sewing, canning,
baking and cooking. I helped my mother after
I was out of school, and I remember how
precious it was to work and talk together.
Not only was she my mother but also my
best friend. I want the same friendship with
my children. My daily prayer is to be a good
example to my children and to always guide
them to live the life God wants.
Since Verenas special friend, Marvin,
lives a couple hours away, we decided to
surprise Verena on Sunday while he was here
visiting in Michigan. Others who came in
honor of Verenas birthday were Timothy and
Mose; Jacob, Emma and family; their daughters friends, Menno and Manuel; and also my
sisters Verena and Susan.
On the menu was barbecued chicken, hot
wings and T-bone steaks, mashed potatoes,
chicken gravy, dressing, corn, potato salad,
lettuce salad, sliced cheese, homemade bread,
butter, strawberry jam, peanut butter pies
and a variety of Christmas candy. Verena
had another surprise when Marvin presented
a Dairy Queen ice cream cake to her with
candles for her to blow out.
I forgot to mention that Barbara, a friend
of our daughters, was also here for Verenas
birthday. She and Verena were born not too far
apart, and Barbaras mother and I both had the
same midwife. Right after Verena was born at
6:32 a.m., someone came to our house to get

LEIPSIC The Fort Jennings Lady


Musketeers were trying to get their first
win of the basketball season, while the
Leipsic Lady Vikings were attempting
to bounce back from a tough loss to
Liberty-Benton.
The Putnam County League foes
hooked up at Leipsic on Tuesday evening with the hosts jumping out to an
early 9-2 advantage and a 16-5 lead after
the first stop.
Leipsic would use 21-point quarters
in the middle two frames on its way to a
68-36 victory in moving their record to
4-1 overall and dropping the Musketeers
to 0-6 on the year.
Gabby Clippinger hit five 3-pointers in leading all scorers and Fort
Jennings with 17.
Brooke Gerdeman had 16 and Kelly
Nadler added 15 in the winning effort
for the hosts.
Nadler scored the first eight points
of the game for the Vikings, pacing the
Purple and White to a early 9-2 advantage. Kierra Meyer ( 9 points) topped off
a 10-0 Leipsic run with a shot from the
low post to make it 14-5 with 1:18 to go
in the first canto.

KALIDA Kalida junior Grant Unverfeth buried a trey


from the left wing with 1.0 ticks on the clock and PandoraGilboa could not get a timeout as the host Wildcats squeezed
by the Rockets 37-34 Tuesday in the Putnam County League
opener inside The Wildcat Den.
The painfully youthful Rockets (6
freshmen played in their 9-man rotation)
led 31-26 to commence the fourth but
the game got very tight in the final eights
minutes as the teams combined for a cold
5-of-19 (4-of-12 by the hosts). As well,
they combined for 10 turnovers (6 by PG).
Kalida junior Drew Hovest swished a triple at seven minutes
for a 31-29 deficit. Rocket freshman Eli Phillips hit the 2nd-of2 singles at 6:10, only to have Kalida senior Devin Kortokrax
(17 markers, 5 boards) score his first basket since the end of
the first period at 5:20. Drew Johnson (15 markers, 8 rebounds)
hit a spinner to the basket at 3:52 for the Rockets last points
and a 34-31 edge. They missed their final two shots and had
their final two miscues (14 for the game). Kalida got within
one on a transition baseline drive by Kortokrax at 1:28. His
1st-of-2 freebies at 1:08 tied it at 34. After the final PG error,
the Wildcats ran down the clock calling time at 14.4 ticks
before working for the final shot: set up by a pass from the key
by sophomore Trent Siebeneck to the left wing, Unverferth set
his feet and his 3-pointer was true for the game-winner.
Both Kalida and Pandora-Gilboa are working through earlyseason issues. The Wildcats have had to reshuffle the deck after
losing senior lettermen Luke Langhals and Logan Roebke to
early-season injuries, while the Rockets not only have all that
youth but a new coach, Logan Smith.
We had those two guys all summer and played 40 games
with them. Now, we have to switch things up and its taking
time, Kalida mentor Richard Kortokrax said. We are reduced
to having one guy with a letter on this team, so we were
depending on a lot of inexperienced juniors and even a couple
of sophomores. Were trying to find the right combination.
Devin played really well the first period but when teams focus

The Vikings took advantage of their


height advantage, controlling the boards
and gaining the rebound advantage.
They limited the guests to 1-shot
opportunities and repeatedly hit
the open back-door shots on the
other end.
Gerdeman drained the first basket of the second period off a feed
from Nadler in the paint to make
it a 18-5 score. Keri Eickholt
delivered from the paint for the
Musketeers with a deuce with
6:25 to go in the second to make
it a 20-7 contest.
However, the home team continued with its low-block dominance as Gerdeman and Nadler
hooked up again on a pass to the
paint with Gerdeman banking one
in for two, giving the Vikings a
24-7 lead.
Clippinger hit the first of her
threes late in the second before
Nadler finished off the half with a shot
from the paint, giving Leipsic a 36-15
lead heading into the break.
Clippinger got Fort Jennings off to a
good start with another triple in the third
but the Vikings topped off the frame
with another 21-point effort in holding their guests to just two Clippinger
3-pointers in the third eight minutes.

They took a 58-21 lead into the final


period.
The guests outscored the Vikings
14-10 in the final eight minutes.
Meyer highlighted the home
team performance with a 3-of5 shooting effort from the foul
line. Clippinger added one more
long-range shot for the Lady
Musketeers. Leipsic returns to
Blanchard Valley Conference play
on Thursday.
The Musketeers return to
action on Saturday in an attempt
to get their first win against PCL
foe Kalida with a noon JV tip.

Lincolnview sinks Lady


Commodores with 50-point win

Lady Cougars
rally falls short
By DANIEL JOSEPH
DHI Media Correspondent
news@delphosherald.com
VAN WERT After leading the Lady Bearcats after
one quarter, Spencerville came
back roaring to take a 34-23
lead at the break. The Lady
Cougars then fought back to
take a late fourth-quarter lead
but the Lady Bearcats eventually grabbed a 49-47 nonleague triumph at The Cougars
Den.
With the Lady
Cougars down 42-39,
Emma Kohn forced a
Spencerville miscue
before putting in a
layup through heavy
contact and drawing a foul.
Kohn made the free throw,
tying the game at 42. On the
following possession, Phoebe
Eutsler managed to steal the
ball from the Lady Bearcats
before Erin Morrow put in the
go-ahead basket from the right
block while drawing a foul.
Morrow made the free throw,
giving Van Wert a 45-42 lead.
Moments later, Jacey
Grigsby was sent to the line
following a shooting foul.
Gribsby made the first and
missed the second but the
ball would go out of bounds,
ruled Spencerville ball. Megan
Miller inbounded the ball to a
wide-open Katie Merriman on
the right block and she put it
up and in, tying the game at 45.
Van Wert would then hold
the ball without being pressured by the Lady Bearcats for
just over two minutes before a
couple of Lady Cougar missed
field goals and a Bearcat foul,
sending Emily Bair to the
line for a 1-and-1 opportunity.
After a missed free throw and
a Lady Bearcat missed field
goal, Morrow took charge and
put one in off the glass, putting
Van Wert up 47-45 with under
a minute remaining.
In a tie ball game, if they
arent going to come out and
play us and we can get the last
shot make we win, miss
we go to overtime then we
arent going to push anything,
said Van Wert head coach
Lance Moonshower on holding
the ball for two minutes.
After a Spencerville timeout, Miller inbounded the ball
to Emilee Meyer, who drained
a 3-point field goal, giving the
Lady Bearcats a 1-point lead
with under 30 seconds to go.

We have that side out of


bounds play that we really
like to run, Spencerville head
coach Greg Ekis said.
Van Wert missed two
field goals, including an Ally
Jackson 3-pointer that went in
and came out, before fouling as
a last resort with 6.8 seconds to
go in the contest. Meyer made
the first of two free throws
and missed the second, but the
Lady Cougars were unable to
get a shot off before the buzzer sounded for the
2-point Spencerville
win.
The
Cougars
struggled from behind
the arc throughout
Tuesday nights nonleague contest, capitalizing on
just six out of 25 shots.
We are a better team
when we are knocking down
threes, as is every team, said
Moonshower. I wouldnt say
that missing so many threes
was the main reason for us
falling behind but it definitely
didnt help us.
After an early injury to starting senior guard Schylar Miller
that would keep her out for
the game, Caitlyn Probst came
in off the bench and scored
11 points before halftime for
the Lady Bearcats. The Lady
Bearcats were also forced to
play a couple players who were
struggling with foul trouble.
I cant give Caitlyn enough
credit right now, said Ekis.
She came in and really gave us
a lift after the injury to Schylar.
She provided us some big minutes, points and rebounds. She
really did a great job for us.
Spencerville and Van
Wert finished with a 4-point
difference in the paint, three
rebounds apart and a one-percent field goal percentage difference. The Lady Bearcats led
all three categories but both
teams were neck and neck for
the last quarter.
It was just a play here
and a play there, added
Moonshower. They made a
couple big plays and a couple
big rebounds. We had a three
go halfway in and then come
out there toward the end. In a
game like this where statistically it was so close, it comes
down to those few plays.
The Cougars fall to 2-4 on
the young season and will next
play Thursday night at Ottowa
Glandorf.
Spencerville hosts Paulding.

MIDDLE POINT
Complete domination.
That might be the best
way to describe the nonconference matchup between
the Lincolnview Lady Lancer
basketball team and the
visiting Lima Perry Lady
Commodores at Lincolnview
High School Tuesday evening.
The Lady Lancers scored
the first 16 points of the
game en route to a 72-22
thrashing of the visiting Lady
Commodores.
We came out and had a

great start to the game, which


is what we needed to do,
explained Lincolnview coach
Dan Williamson. We came
out and shot the ball well. We
shot the ball well, executed
our offense and played well
defensively.
The
Lady
Lancers shot the
ball well to the
tune of 57 percent
from the field (29of-51), including
3-of-6 from 3-point range.
Junior wing Ashton
Bowersock led the Lady
Lancers with 18 points
and senior guards Hannah
McCleery and Julia Thatcher
added 15 and 14 points,

respectively.
Hannah shot the ball well
from the perimeter, which is
what we need her to do said
Williamson of McCleery.
Shes very good at getting
to the rim but if she can hit
the perimeter shot,
its going to make
her hard to guard.
It was another
solid game from
Julia and Ashton.
Everybody contributed.
Sophomore post Katlyn
Wendel was the fourth Lady
Lancer in double figures,
with 13 points, and senior
post Stephanie Longwell
added five points and a team-

high seven rebounds.


Katlyn Wendel contributed with a lot of points.
Stephanie
Longwell
same thing, continued
Williamson. It was just an
overall good win for us.
On the other end of the
floor, the Lady Commodores
shot only 18 percent (9-of50) from the field on the
evening and failed to hit a
3-pointer in 10 tries.
The visitors recorded
only two field goals by halftime and were turned over
22 times by the aggressive
Lincolnview defense.

Bengals running in front of


AFC North behind rookie Hill
By JOE KAY
Associated Press
CINCINNATI Jeremy Hill got the
ball on Cincinnatis first four plays, setting the Bengals on course for an opening touchdown drive in Cleveland.
Hill kept at it all game, running for
148 yards during a 30-0 victory that
kept Cincinnati atop the AFC North and
left the Bengals one victory away from
another playoff appearance.
Credit a rookie who has kept them
running in front.
Jeremy did a great job running the
ball, quarterback Andy Dalton said.
We need to keep that going.
Hill leads all NFL rookies with 877

yards rushing, ranking 11th overall. His


latest big game kept the Bengals (9-41) a half-game ahead of Pittsburgh and
Baltimore. He joined Rudi Johnson as
the only Bengals running backs to have
three games of at least 148
yards in a season.
Hes the first NFL rookie running back with at least
three 140-yard games since
Cadillac Williams did it with
Tampa Bay in 2005.
Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson
has decided to make Hill the featured
back the rest of the way, replacing
Giovani Bernard as the starter. Theyd
been splitting the role during games but
it wasnt working out.

Jackson figured that giving Hill most


of the carries would help him get into
a flow.
Its what Ive been accustomed to
my whole life, just being the guy and
getting the bulk of the carries,
Hill said. Anytime I can do
that, I can feel the defense out.
Its just stuff you cant really
do if youre only getting five
or six carries.
The game on Sunday was
significant for the Bengals offense.
Cleveland dominated during a 24-3 in
Cincinnati on Nov. 6, with the Bengals
held to 165 total yards. They went to
Cleveland determined to run. They had
linemen pulling on various carries.

Former Browns quarterback


Kosar rips teams front office
By TOM WITHERS
Associated Press
CLEVELAND Former Cleveland Browns quarterback
Bernie Kosar unloaded on the teams front office, saying it
lacks vision and switching to rookie Johnny Manziel is a
recipe for disaster.
Clevelands best quarterback in the past 30 years
and one of the most popular players in team history,
Kosar delivered a harsh critique of his former team
in an interview with WTAM radio Monday. Kosar,
whose contract as a preseason TV analyst was not
renewed last summer, condemned the Browns current regime.
They dont know how to lead and organize and set a culture
to play winning football, to win in the NFL consistently, Kosar
said. You cant play football like this.
Manziel made his first start Sunday and played poorly in
a 30-0 loss to Cincinnati. Kosar, who led the Browns to three
AFC title games, called the Browns constant rotation of quarterbacks Manziel is the 21st starter since 1999 part of a
systemic organizational problem.
Theyve been talking so positively like, This is the savior,

and thats what bad organizations do, Kosar said. They set
these quarterback controversies up and it kind of takes the heat
off of them and it gives everybody a little glimmer of hope. You
cant put these kids in these spots. Its almost abuse.
The Browns declined comment.
Kosar, who has longed to have a prominent role with
the team, never mentioned owner Jimmy Haslam or general
manager Ray Farmer directly. But he made clear
he believes the problems are tied to the decision
makers at the top of the organization.
Im 51, he said. At this pace, Im going to
die by 60 and for the last 25 years of my life, all
Im going to talk about is, Who do you think the
quarterback should be? Thats all we talk about.
And you cant fix it until you fix it above it.
Kosar said first-year coach Mike Pettine is not to blame.
The Browns started 6-3 this season under Pettine but have
dropped four of five and are virtually out of the playoff race.
He was hired under this set of rules where everybody gets
to giggle and laugh and talk about things and everybody is
involved in everything, Kosar said. He was hired in a tough,
tough spot in a culture above him that is not a football culture.
Its not a winning football culture. It goes above that.

Playoff participants stack


AP All-America team
By RALPH D. RUSSO
Associated Press
The College Football Playoff participants are well represented on The
Associated Press All-America team.
Florida State leads the way with three
first-team All-Americans: tight end
Nick OLeary, guard Tre Jackson and
kicker Roberto Aguayo, who is an AllAmerican for the second straight season.
Oregon and Alabama each have two,
including a couple of Heisman Trophy
finalists.
Heisman winner Marcus Mariota is
the first Ducks quarterback to be an
All-American. He is joined by Ducks
cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu.
The second-seeded Ducks will play
third-seeded Florida State on Jan. 1 at
the Rose Bowl.
Crimson Tide receiver Amari Cooper,
third in the Heisman voting, made the
first team along with his teammate, safety Landon Collins. The top-ranked Tide
will face fourth-seeded Ohio State and
All-America defensive end Joey Bosa
on New Years Day in the Sugar Bowl.
Florida State also had the most players on the three All-America teams with
six. Receiver Rashad Greene and safety
Jalen Ramsey made the second team and
defensive tackle Eddie Goldman was a
third-team selection.
Here are some things to know about
the 89th AP All-America team.
SHAQ ATTACK
Washingtons Shaq Thompson played
both offense and defense this season and

excelled both ways, making him the perfect guy to be the first-team all-purpose
player.
Thompson scored six touchdowns,
three by fumble return, two rushing and
one by interception return. He has 456
yards rushing and is averaging 7.5 per
carry. He also has 71 tackles,
four fumble recoveries and
three forced fumbles.
The Huskies joined
Florida State as the only
teams with three players on
the first team. Washington
also was represented by defensive tackle
Danny Shelton and linebacker Hauoli
Kikaha, who leads the nation in sacks
with 18.
KICKING IT
Aguayo is the first kicker to be a twotime All-American since Ohio States
Mike Nugent, though Nugent did not
make the first team in consecutive seasons like the Seminoles star.
Nugent was a first-team selection in
2002 and again in 2004.
A DIFFERENT KIND OF ALLAMERICAN
A couple of traditional basketball
powers were represented on the AllAmerica team for the first time in a
while.
Duke guard Laken Tomlinson became
the first Blue Devils player selected AP
All-American since receiver Clarkston
Hines made the first team in 1989.
Indiana running back Tevin Coleman
is the first Hoosiers player to be an AllAmerican since running back Vaughn

Dunbar was a firstr-teamer in 1991.


CONFERENCE CALL
The Pac-12 led the way with seven
players on the first team, followed by
the Atlantic Coast Conference with six.
The Southeastern Conference and
Big Ten each had four players chosen to
the first team. The Big 12
had three. The lone player
from outside the Big Five
conferences to make the
first team was Colorado
State receiver Rashard
Higgins.
QUICK HITS
Alabama guard Arie Kouandjio
was a second-team selection. His brother Cyrus, who played tackle at Alabama
and is now in the NFL, was an AllAmerican last season.
The only freshman to make any
of the three teams were Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett, a redshirt freshman,
and Oklahoma running Samaje Perine,
who both made the third team.
This is the third straight year
Ekpre-Olomu has received All-America
honors. He made the third team as a
sophomore and a junior before moving
to the first team this season.
UAB, which shuttered its football
program after it finished the season,
has a representative on the All-America
teams. Receiver J.J. Nelson was selected
to the third team as an all-purpose
player. Nelson is 10th in the nation in
all-purpose yards and leads the country
in kickoff return average at 38.3 yards,
with four touchdowns.

Grove wrestlers edge Pilots, Panthers

COLUMBUS GROVE
Columbus Groves wrestling team has only had six
practices together as a full
team after the Bulldog football team went to the state
semifinals.
The lack of practice hasnt
seemed to affect their ability
on the mat.
Hosting Ayersville and
Paulding in a tri-match
Monday
evening,
the
Bulldogs came away winners
in both matches. Columbus
Grove held off Ayersville
in their first match of the
evening, then defeated its
Northwest Conference rival
in the nightcap 32-24. The
Bulldogs are 3-0 in dual
matches after one week of
the season.
It was a good night,
Bulldog coach Eric Siefker
said. We beat Ayersville and
Paulding on the same night
and we havent done that
in a very long time, that I
can remember. The boys are
happy with that. Some of our
football guys have only had
six practices and this their
third match they have had.
You can see some mistakes
we are making, but once we
fix them we should be pretty
tough.
In both matches Monday,
the decisions came down
to the final weight classes,
which were the 106 and 120
pound weight classes.
In the Ayersville match,
the Bulldogs had a 24-19 lead
after the Pilots Evan Guilford
picked up a major decision win over the Bulldogs
Preston Brubaker, 13-1. With
six points secured at 126

Columbus Groves Eli Schroeder works on trying to pin Ayersvilles Elijah Fackler during their 152-pound match Monday. Schroeder won the match 8-6 (DHI
Media/Charlie Warnimont)
pounds as Grove was forced
to forfeit the spot, the match
came down to the 120 pound
match between the Bulldogs
Justin Calvelage and the
Pilots Daniel Casarez.
Casarez had a 9-8 lead on
Calvelage before the Bulldog
wrestler was able to come up
with a reversal to give him a
10-9 lead. In the closing seconds, Calvelage was able to
stay on top of the Ayersville
wrestler for the win.
Nick Ogle (145) and
Eli Schroeder (152) got
the Bulldogs off to a quick
start with decisions before
Christian
Stechschulte
(160) won by a pin. After
the Pilots won the next two
matches, Andrew Nichols
(195) won with a pin and Eli

Wiswasser (220) won by forfeit. Ayersville won the 285


pound class by forfeit.
In the match with
Paulding, Ogle gave the
Bulldogs a quick five points
with a technical fall win
before Schroeder pinned
his opponent in 37 seconds.
Columbus Grove lost the
next three matches by pins
before Andrew Nichols (195)
won by forfeit and Wiswasser
by pin at 220.
At 106 pounds, Brubaker
9-8 before Calvelage closed
out the win with a pin in 54
seconds. The Panthers won at
113 pounds by forfeit.
We had some big wins
there, especially right at the
end, Siefker said. Justin
Calvelage won us the

Ayersville meet with the win


and he did the same in the
Paulding match. We matched
up pretty good against both
teams. We had the same number of byes as we did, so that
worked out. It was a good
night. It was close match
between every one
Columbus Grove 27,
Ayersville 25
106 - Guilford (AY) maj

AP sources: NFL employees


turn over phone, email records
Associated Press
Nearly 500 employees at NFL
headquarters in New York turned
over phone and email records to
investigators looking into how
Commissioner Roger Goodell and
his staff pursued and handled evidence in the Ray Rice case, two people familiar with the situation told
The Associated Press on Tuesday.
The people spoke to the AP on
condition of anonymity because
details of the investigation wont be
made public until former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III releases
his report. The report is expected to
be completed this month, one of the
sources said.
Mueller has been investigating
whether anyone at the NFL had
seen or obtained video of the former Baltimore Ravens running back
striking his then-fiancee inside an
elevator at an Atlantic City, New
Jersey casino before the video was
published online.
League employees were instructed to cooperate with Muellers team
of investigators and respond immediately to requests for information,
the sources said.
Investigators zeroed in on phone
calls made from NFL offices to
numbers with a New Jersey area
code. Employees also were asked
to identify certain numbers in question and investigators even called
some of the numbers to verify call
recipients.
A representative for Mueller, who
led the FBI for 12 years under
Presidents George W. Bush and
Barack Obama, declined comment.
Muellers team is trying to identify who called a law enforcement
official who said he mailed a DVD
of the video to league headquarters
to the attention of the NFLs security chief. The official played for
the AP a 12-second voicemail from
an NFL office number dated April 9,
where a woman confirms receipt of

the video.
Mueller now works in private
practice in a Washington law firm.
His probe is being overseen by
owners John Mara of the New
York Giants and Art Rooney of the
Pittsburgh Steelers and the league
said three months ago that Mueller
would have access to all NFL records
and would have full cooperation
from league personnel.
Brain-injury program
working with NFL players
LANSING, Mich. A
brain-injury treatment program originally designed
for military veterans injured
on the battlefield has been
updated to include professional athletes.
Representatives
with
the Eisenhower Center
announced Tuesday that it will be
the primary facility used by the
NFL Players Association for treating
brain injuries and other neurological
issues through the After the Impact
program.
The residential neuro-rehabilitation facility is based in Ann Arbor.
The program provides intense
treatment for soldiers and athletes
recovering from concussions, mild
traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder and other problems. It evolved from the Eisenhower
Centers transitional treatment program to help military members deal
with brain injuries.
The NFL expects 6,000 of nearly
20,000 retired players or 28 percent to suffer from Alzheimers
disease or at least moderate dementia
someday. Former players have sued.
Current Detroit Lions tight end
Joseph Fauria and former quarterback Eric Hipple attended Tuesdays
announcement.
Nearly one-third of all retired
NFL players will suffer from a longterm cognitive problem, Hipple
said. The players and veterans who
have gone through the After the

Impact program have learned a lot


from each other and helped each
other on the path to recovery.
The NFL last month urged a judge
to approve an estimated $1 billion
settlement of concussion lawsuits
despite concerns raised by former
players or survivors who felt left
out. The 65-year fund would resolve
thousands of lawsuits that accuse
the NFL of long hiding what it
knew about concussions
and brain injuries to keep
players on the field.
The issue is a significant one in hockey too.
In October, a consolidated
class-action lawsuit by former NHL players against
the league over concussionrelated injuries was filed in
federal court.
NFL announces 32 nominees for
Walter Payton Award
NEW YORK The NFL has
announced the 32 players eligible for
the Walter Payton NFL Man of the
Year Award.
Among the nominees are Green
Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers,
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson,
Dallas running back DeMarco
Murray, San Diego quarterback
Philip Rivers, Kansas City linebacker Tamba Hali and Carolina linebacker Thomas Davis, who was a
finalist last year.
Named for the late Hall of Fame
running back, the award recognizes
a players community service and
performance on the field.
Each team nominates a player and
the NFL Foundation donates $1,000
to a charity of his choice. The three
finalists will receive an additional
$5,000 contribution. They will be
announced next month.
The winner will receive a $20,000
donation in his name to his favorite
charity. The announcement will be
made during the NFL Honors show
Jan. 31, the night before the Super
Bowl in Glendale, Arizona.

(Continued from page 6)

We want to get out in transition and we got


a lot of transition points tonight, Williamson
noted. When we can do that were pretty
good because we have some speed at the
guard position. So it was big for us to get
some stops and get some good looks. I was
pleased with our defensive effort.
Lincolnview led 37-7 at the halftime break
but turned the ball over six times in the first
half - something Williamson said the team
focused on: The biggest thing I was happy
about with our kids is they made adjustments.
We talked about at halftime, with our zone
offense, we had a lot of turnovers. We were
trying to reverse the ball and they were jumping in passing lanes.
We talked about what we wanted to do to
counteract that. (The girls) executed it and got
a lot of layups because of it.
Junior guard Jala Phillips led the Lady
Commodores with five points on the evening,

Kalida

(Continued from page 6)


Coach Smith figured it
is all part of a growing-up
process.
Still, I like how we kept
attacking and didnt back
down. Its easy enough to
want to have a play or two
different but the only way
to learn is to go through
it, Smith added. We outrebounded Kalida, which is
a big thing because they are
a quality opponent. We got
beat earlier on the boards
this year to a team I consider
not quite as good as Kalida,
so we are taking positive
steps.
The games biggest lead
was seven, with three ties
and five lead changes, in a
very cleanly-played tussle.
Kortokrax caught fire
early, netting 12 of Kalidas
first-period points. However,
it was junior Trent Gerdings
turnaround jumper off a
second chance at 1:02 that
gave the Maroon and White

while senior wing Courtland Fowler and


senior post Imani Watson each added four.
Watson had a team-high seven rebounds.
We didnt get a chance to scout Perry,
explained Williamson. So we didnt know
what they had or what they could do. We
knew they were going to be athletic and quick
- they were averaging over 50 points a game.
With the win, the Lady Lancers advance
to 2-1 on the young season. The Lady
Commodores fall to 1-2.

a 14-10 lead after one.


Neither team could make
much of a move in the second period: Kalida could
not catch fire to build its
lead above 18-12 but Gilboa
could not get hot to slim
its deficit lower than 14-12.
A free toss by freshman
Ryan Lee at 35 ticks got the
Rockets within 22-18 at the
half.
The Rockets did heat up
in the third period 5-of11 from the field (13-of-40
overall, 4-of-16 downtown,
for 32.5%) and took the
lead at 25-22 on a 3-ball by
Johnson at 5:10. That was
in the midst of an 11-0 spurt
to erect the games biggest
lead, 29-22, on a basket by
Lee at the 2-minute mark.
In the last 1:32, Kalida outscored PG 4-2 to get within 31-26 on a putback by

the difference for


Sony hackers reference 9/11 in Whats
borrowing: a home equity
new threats against theaters loan or a line of credit?
NEW YORK (AP) Hackers calling themselves Guardians of Peace
made ominous threats Tuesday against
movie theaters showing Sony Pictures
film The Interview that referred to the
terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
The group also released a trove of data
files including about 8,000 emails from
the inbox of Sony Entertainment CEO
Michael Lynton.
The data dump was what the hackers called the beginning of a Christmas
gift. But GOP, as the group is known,
included a message warning that people
should stay away from places where
The Interview will be shown, including
the upcoming premiere. Invoking 9/11,
it urged people to leave their homes if
located near theaters showing the film.
The warning prompted law enforcement
in New York and Los Angeles to address
measures to ramp up security.
The Interview is a comedy in which
Seth Rogen and James Franco star as
television journalists involved in a CIA
plot to assassinate North Korean leader
Kim Jong Un. Its New York premiere is
scheduled for Thursday at Manhattans
Landmark Sunshine, and is expected
to hit theaters nationwide on Christmas
Day. It premiered in Los Angeles last
week.
Rogen and Franco pulled out of all
media appearances Tuesday, canceling
a Buzzfeed Q&A and Rogens planned
guest spot Thursday on Late Night With
Seth Meyers. The two stars had just

DENVER (AP) Saying


Southwest Airlines is neglecting workers and its customers,
baggage handlers are bringing attention to the companys
slide in on-time performance
as they seek a new contract.
Workers picketed and
handed out leaflets to passengers at Denver and 15 other
airports across the country
Tuesday. On Wednesday, they
plan to press their point in an
ad in USA Today.
For years, Dallas-based
Southwest was the most punctual of big U.S. airlines, but
it stumbled after trying to
squeeze in more flights into
its schedule. Southwest has
also prided itself on keeping
its employees happy, believing that would guarantee good
service for its customers.
That recipe is kind of
gone and its profits over people and thats not acceptable,
said Charles Cerf, president of
the Southwest baggage workers union, Transport Workers
Union Local 555, who was
picketing in Orlando, Florida.
About 50 percent of the
time, Cerf said there is only
one worker pulling bags out
of the bigger version of the
Boeing 737 Southwest now
flies even though the plane
holds 38 more passengers than
the previous version, requiring an extra flight attendant.

earlier Tuesday, Los Angeles Police


Chief Charlie Beck said his department
takes the hackers threats very seriously and will be taking extra precautions during the holidays at theaters.
Patrick Corcoran, spokesman for the
National Association of Theater Owners,
wouldnt comment on the threats.
In their warning Tuesday, the hackers suggested Sony employees make
contact via several disposable email
addresses ending in yopmail.com.
Frenchman Frederic Leroy, who started
up the yopmail site in 2004, was surprised to learn the Sony hackers were
using yopmail addresses. He said there
was no way he could identify the users.
I cannot see the identities of people
using the address there is no name,
no first name, he said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. He said
yopmail is used around the world but
there are hundreds and hundreds of
other disposable email sites.
Leroy, who lives in Barr, outside
Strasbourg in eastern France, said he
heard about the Sony hackers yesterday
on the radio but knows nothing more.
He said he has not been contacted by
any authorities.
Since Sony Pictures was hacked by
GOP late last month in one of the
largest data breaches ever against an
American company, everything from
financial figures to salacious emails
between top Sony executives has been
dumped online.

Congress votes to extend


tax breaks through 2014
WASHINGTON (AP) Banks, retailers, commuters and teachers will keep their
temporary tax breaks for another year after
Congress gave final approval Tuesday to a
massive tax package affecting millions of
businesses and individuals.
The last-minute bill would extend the
expired tax breaks through the end of the
year, enabling taxpayers to claim them on
their 2014 tax returns. Beyond this year,
their fate will once again be uncertain.
The package now goes to President
Barack Obama, who is expected to sign it.
It would add nearly $42 billion to the budget deficit over the next decade, according
to congressional estimates.
The 54 tax breaks benefit big corporations and small businesses, as well as struggling homeowners and people who live in
states without a state income tax. More narrow provisions include tax breaks for filmmakers, racehorse owners and rum producers in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
The Senate voted 76-16 to approve the
package Tuesday evening as lawmakers
rushed to finish their work before heading
home for the holidays. The House passed
the bill earlier this month.
Lawmakers from both political parties
said they were disappointed they were unable
to extend the tax breaks beyond this year.
This package of incentives which
applies only to 2014 will last two more
weeks before families and businesses will
be thrown back into the dark about what
taxes they owe, said Sen. Ron Wyden,
D-Ore., chairman of the Senate Finance
Committee. This tax bill doesnt have the
shelf life of a carton of eggs.
Congress routinely extends the package

of tax breaks every year or two. But they


were allowed to expire in January.
Technically, the bill is a one-year, retroactive extension of the tax breaks, even though
it only lasts through the end of the month.
This bill represents the worst habits
in Washington, said Sen Tom Coburn,
R-Okla. Politicians in a lame duck, endof-the-year session, passing out goodies to
well-connected industries instead of lowering tax rates for all Americans.
Business groups have complained for
years that the patchwork of temporary tax
breaks makes it difficult for them to plan.
Still, in a letter to senators, the National
Association of Manufacturers supported the
bill because it would prevent immediate tax
increases on thousands of manufacturers that
benefit from these temporary provisions.
House Republicans and Senate
Democrats negotiated to make some of the
tax breaks permanent. But talks faltered
after the White House threatened to veto
an emerging package, saying it too heavily
favored big corporations over families.
House Republicans responded by passing
a one-year bill, figuring they will have more
influence over the package next year, when
Republicans take control of the Senate.
My only hope is that in the new
Congress we can make strides toward putting some certainty back in the tax code,
said Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.
Among the biggest breaks for businesses
are a tax credit for research and development,
an exemption that allows financial companies
such as banks and investment firms to shield
foreign profits from being taxed by the U.S.,
and several provisions that allow businesses
to write off capital investments more quickly.

$500, which I have in a signed


contract. Is it worth it for me
to file a paper at the courthouse or walk away? -- Fred
DEAR FRED: It is not
unusual to have a month-tomonth rental agreement. You
can leave any time, giving
a months notice, and your
landlord can ask you to leave
with a months notice. Youve
agreed, and you are moving
out within that 30-day period.
You have every right to
inquire about your $500.
There is no reason to file at
the courthouse or walk away,
at least at the beginning. If
your apartment is reasonably
maintained and clean, there
should be no reason the $500
shouldnt be returned. If your
landlord refuses to return it or
gives you a lower amount due
to damage in the apartment,
thats a different matter, but it
can be a matter of negotiation.
If the amount is not high, it is
sometimes easier to pay and
move on.
DEAR BRUCE: What
is the difference between
a checking and a savings
account? -- Jenny
DEAR JENNY: A savings
account is simply an account
used to deposit money into
an institution, usually a bank
or credit union, with the idea
that the money will stay there
and earn interest. In todays
world, I see no reason to
have a savings account since
it effectively pays no interest.
A checking account is a different matter altogether. With
a checking account, you are
allowed to write checks for
the amount of money on
deposit at any given time.
A check is simply a way of
conveying money from your
account to someone elses
account. There are penalties
involved if you overdraw,
and you may have to leave
a minimum amount in the
account to avoid paying a
service fee for each check
written.

America and Rogen guested on The
Colbert Report. A representative for
Rogen said he had no comment. A
spokeswoman for Franco didnt respond
to queries Tuesday.
The FBI said it is aware of the threats
and continues to work collaboratively
with our partners to investigate this matter. It declined to comment on whether
North Korea or another country was
behind the attack. Speculation about a
North Korean link to the Sony hacking
has centered on that countrys angry
denunciation of the film. Over the summer, North Korea warned that the films
release would be an act of war that we
will never tolerate. It said the U.S. will
face merciless retaliation.
The New York Police Department,
after coordinating with the FBI and Sony,
plans to beef up security at the Manhattan
premiere, said John Miller, the NYPDs
top counterterrorism official.
Having read through the threat
material myself, its actually not crystal
clear whether its a cyber response that
they are threatening or whether its a
physical attack, Miller said. Thats
why were continuing to evaluate the
language of it, and also the source of it.
I think our primary posture is going to
be is going to have a police presence and
a response capability that will reassure
people who may have heard about this
and have concerns.
Following a commission meeting

DEAR BRUCE: Can


you explain the difference
between a home equity loan
and a line of credit? I want
to make some major home
repairs and need to borrow
$20,000, but I am confused.
-- Reader
DEAR READER: There
are both differences and
similarities between these
two instruments. The choice
depends somewhat on the
measure of what you will be
eligible for.
If you want to borrow
$20,000, you must consider
whether you have enough
equity in the house to justify
that kind of borrowing. Also
take into account the amount
of money you are paying on
your present loan and other
obligations you have to determine if you can afford to take
on more debt.
Whether its considered a
home equity loan, which is
a straight second mortgage,
or a line of credit against the
house, there is little difference. The thing you should
be concerned about is how
much it will cost and for how
long a period of time. A line
of credit may not require a
second mortgage, but the cost
may be considerably higher.
DEAR BRUCE: I am
afraid that after being laid
off from the factory job I
worked at for 15 years and
going through all my savings, I cant afford to pay
for my home anymore. I
owe $75,000 and the house
is valued at $50,000. I have
no income or savings left.
Should I walk away and let
them foreclose or try to go to
a credit counseling agency?
-- Jim
DEAR JIM: I sympathize
that you worked hard, but
unfortunately, you are so far
in the hole that there isnt
much you can do. You should
go to the lender and suggest
a voluntary foreclosure. That
means the lender will accept
whatever it can get for the
house.
In the event that the lender cannot or will not accept
that, then you might wish
to explore voluntary Chapter
7 bankruptcy. Otherwise,
$25,000 or more will be hanging over your head forever.
The Chapter 7 bankruptcy
can eliminate this obligation.
I wish you luck.
DEAR BRUCE: I have
been living in my apartment
five years. I pay my bills on
time. Now my landlord is
telling me I have to move. No
reason given at all. We have
no contract, just month-tomonth.
I finally said OK and asked

by an irresistible
need to move the
legs. Moving the legs
can bring temporary
relief.
Periodic
limb
movement disorder
(PLMD)
causes
people to kick and
jerk their arms and
legs throughout the
night. In PLMD, leg
and arm muscles may
involuntarily contract
hundreds of times a
night. You may not
be aware of it, but a
bed partner probably
will be.
PLMD
limb
movements may last
only a few minutes
or may continue for
hours, with intervals
of sound sleep in
between.
They
usually cluster in the
first half of the night
and occur mainly
during
non-REM
(non-dreaming)
sleep.
People with PLMD
generally
awaken
for a few seconds at
a time during limb
movements,
often
without realizing it.
Then they fall back
into the lighter stages
of sleep. Unless a bed
partner complains,

Fabrication & Welding Inc.

people with PLMD


are often oblivious
to their movements.
They may wake
up baffled at why
they feel exhausted
despite getting what
they thought was a
full nights rest.
Most
people
with RLS also have
PLMD -- but the
reverse is not true.
And the two disorders
have several key
distinctions.
For
example,
RLS
occurs mainly while
awake but at rest;
PLMD occurs during
sleep. RLS involves
voluntary movements
performed to ease
discomfort. PLMD
involves involuntary
movements that the
person may not even
be aware of. (Ive
put a more detailed
chart explaining the
differences between
RLS and PLMD
on
my
website,
AskDoctorK.com.)
Many
people
with RLS have iron
deficiency. Taking
iron
supplements
treats not only the
iron deficiency, but
also improves the
symptoms of RLS.

Dr. Anthony L. Komaroff, M.D.

Ask
Doctor K
You should not take
iron
supplements
unless blood tests
have proved that you
have iron deficiency.
Thats because some
people have a genetic
condition that leads
to iron overload
if they take iron
supplements
they
dont need.
Also, if you have
RLS and are found to
have iron deficiency,
your doctor should
diagnose why you
have it. The most
common cause is
menstrual bleeding.
But sometimes a
person can be very
slowly losing blood
(and the iron in
the blood) without
knowing it. For
example, it could be
from cancer in the
stomach or colon that
is not yet causing any
symptoms.
Theres
some
evidence that exercise
can ease both RLS

and PLMD. Walking


or other moderate
exercise such as
biking or swimming
are good choices.
Some people find
that cold showers
help; others prefer
heat.
Drugs
that
ease the tremors
of
Parkinsons
disease also reduce
the number of leg
movements.
They
can improve quality
of life if you have
RLS or PLMD.

Glove,
Ariz.

A: The 1692 trials were presided over by


English-born judge and businessman Samuel
Sewall. Five years after the trials, he publicly
announced he made a mistake -- he condemned
innocent people to death for witchcraft. From
then until his death in 1730, he spent one day of
fasting and prayer annually as penance.
Q: One of my favorite comedians was
Flip Wilson. What was his real name? When
and where was he born? -A.M.U., Amarillo, Texas
A: Flip Wilson was born
Clerow Wilson Jr. on Dec.
8, 1933, in Jersey City, N.J.,
and was one of 18 children.
He was sent to a foster home
at age 7, but because he
repeatedly ran away, he was
placed in a reform school. Flip Wilson
At age 16, he quit school and
lied to an Air Force recruiter to join the service,
where he became an immediate hit with his
sense of humor and his impressions. He earned
the nickname Flip after someone told him he
had a flipped-out sense of humor.
In 1954, at age 21, Wilson left the service and
got a day job as a bellhop at a San Francisco
hotel; at night, he moved from job to job
performing at comedy clubs. By 1959, his career
took off, and he quit his job to concentrate on
his comedy. He appeared in better nightspots
and became a regular on television.
In 1970, The Flip Wilson Show debuted
and was an instant hit. In 1974, his show was
canceled; after that, he appeared regularly on
TV comedies and variety shows. He died Nov.
25, 1998, at age 64.
Q: In a novel set in the late 1800s to early
1900s in New York City, there was a reference
to Croton bugs. It was obvious they were
referring to cockroaches. Why the name Croton
bug? -- T.L.K., Poterville, Calif.
A: Cockroaches were introduced into this
country around 1840 from ships coming from
Europe. At the time of your novel, the Croton
Aqueduct was recently completed, bringing
water from the Croton River in Westchester,
N.Y., to New York City. The newly introduced
bug was found around indoor water pipes, so
the association with Croton was made, and the
bug was given the name. Today we know the
Croton bug as the German cockroach.

and move on already.

together every day and usually
get along well. She recently
told me that when she goes out

explaining why thats not a good

told me shes a grown woman and
not to lecture her because its her
decision.

Bush (almost) announces;


US judge says Obama
hell explore candidacy
immigration action invalid
WASHINGTON (AP)
A federal judge in Pittsburgh
is declaring that President
Barack Obamas recent executive actions on immigration
are unconstitutional.
U.S. District Judge Arthur
Schwab says Obamas order
in November designed to
spare millions living illegally in the United States from
deportation amounts to unilateral legislative action in

violation of the Constitution.


Schwab issued his opinion
Tuesday in a criminal case
involving an immigrant here
illegally from Honduras.
The administration has
said the new policy does not
apply to criminal cases. The
Justice Department called
Schwabs analysis flatly
wrong and said he had no
basis for his opinion because
no one in the case had chal-

In the meantime, Integrys will be


shopping around for our power, Smith
said. Theres been no contract length
decided upon yet. Integrys will advise
us as to what length of time will best suit
the village.
Discussions turned towards Boy
Scout projects. Smith said hed like to
find some projects within the village
for the five or six scouts looking for
Eagle Scout projects to complete this
next year.
One project already funded and in
place is the installation of three flagpoles at Fort Jennings park, he said.
Those projects at the parks are very
helpful to the village.
Council agreed to continue researching possible projects for the scouts.
Smith said Scout Michael Fields
spoke with him recently about a walk-

of the presidents actions.
Schwabs opinion puts
forth some of the same arguments made by Texas and 23
other states in their challenge
to Obamas actions on immigration. Schwab was appointed by President George W.
Bush.
Case Western Reserve
University law professor
Jonathan Adler says hes

way he would like to construct and


already has funded which would run
from Champion around the soccer fields
to the concession stand.
The projects cost is close to $13,500
and the school has approved the project, Smith said. The second part of the
project, a walkway from Elm running
through Dave Gossards property and
meeting the proposed walkway from
Champion, will cost $10,920.
Smith said Fields is looking for funding for the second walkway and wanted
to know if the village could help in any
way. Council members agreed they were
interested in the project and wanted to
invite Fields to the next meeting to have
him speak on the plan.
Village Maintenance Supervisor Ted
Wrasman reported he had three older
motors that needed repaired taken off
aerators. He said the bearings were bad
and could be repaired for $175 each,

(Continued from page 1)

Councilman Mark Clement asked Auditor Tom Jettinghoff


where the money would come from.
Its about $78,000 a year and Im looking at the savings
from relocating the dispatchers to help cover that, Jettinghoff
said.
Clement also asked if salaried workers get paid compensation time for hours worked above 40.
Our policy says they do, Gallmeier said.
Councilman Josh Gillespie voiced his opinion on the matter.
I dont feel salaried employees should get compensation
time, he said. Thats why they are salaried.
Gallmeier also announced Williams position was filled
from within the city roster with Todd Haunhorst. Haunhorsts
position will be filled by Jon Brenneman from wastewater/
collections and Jeff Stockwell will transfer from maintenance
to wastewater/collections.
We now have an opening in maintenance that will have to
be filled through a civil service test, Gallmeier said. I look
for that to happen sometime after the first of the year.
Gallmeier finalized his report by reminding council the
Allen County Republican Party has until Jan. 13 to appoint
someone to fill the open seat on council left by Kevin Ostings

New motors are close to $500,
Wrasman added.
After discussion, Smith and council
thought it would be futile to repair the
two old pumps and have the newer old
pump assessed for repairs for use as a
back up.
Wrasman said all pumps and maintenance equipment were working fine.
He said hes had time to get caught up
on some maintenance on equipment at
the shop.
Wrasman reported the police cruiser
had a second flat tire the same tire
that was patched began leaking and
council members agreed it was time to
have new tires put on the vehicle.
We know we have one bad tire and
with winter coming, theres no sense in
putting it off, Smith said.
The next village meeting will be held
at 7 p.m. on Jan. 20 at the village library.

I think we want to wait until the first of the year to finalize


committee heads for the committees he was on, Gallmeier
said.
Safety Service Director Shane Coleman gave an update on
the progress of finding a solution for the issues at the wastewater treatment plant.
We did meet with an additional company last week and we
have another presentation Monday, Coleman said.
Coleman also said of the seven King Street residents
invited to talk with the administration about annexation, only
one attended.
We need to contact them again to find out what they need
from us, Coleman said.
Coleman also met with three EMS billing providers to see
if the city could benefit from their services.
All three said we were doing a nice job at billing and our
revenues from that were pretty substantial, he said. None of
them would tell me if we could collect more by using them.
One of them did offer to evaluate our date and get back with
me with any suggestions.
Council passed on third reading a resolution outlining what
the city will provide to annexed properties, including police
protection; fire protection; rescue service (ambulance service);
natural gas; cable television; electric power, including street
lights on dedicated streets; and water and sewer services.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Jeb Bush answered the

Bush, the son and brother of Republican presidents, is the
first potential candidate to step this far into the 2016 contest,
and his early announcement could deeply affect the race for the
GOP nomination.
He is the early favorite of the GOPs establishment wing,
and his move puts immediate pressure on other establishmentminded GOP contenders to start competing with him for
donors, campaign staff and national attention.
The 61-year old former two-term governor of Florida
declared on Facebook he would actively explore the possibility of running for president of the United States.
While his statement doesnt commit Bush to running,
veterans of presidential politics described it as a de facto
announcement that ends months of speculation about his
intentions.
