Mayor taps George Pool comes under scrutiny temporary safety service director
Parks and Rec Committee
BY NANCY SPENCER Herald Editor nspencer@delphosherald.com DELPHOS Pleas from the public to find a solution to the citys budget woes without closing the Delphos Municipal Swimming Pool were heard Monday evening. Councils Parks and Rec Committee met to go over the pool/concessions and parks expenses and revenues. Resident Mark Correll said he would be willing to pay a little more for a season ticket if it meant he didnt have to leave Delphos to swim in the summer. If I have to drive somewhere else, that takes time and gas, he said. Id pay a little more if I could just stay here and use our pool. Van Wert resident Jean Gemmer also spoke. I dont live here but I work here and Ive been a season ticket holder for several years, she began. I have a lot of childhood memories at the pool. Van Werts pool closed in 2000 and this year, the city proposed an aquatic center the citizens immediately voted down. Once you close something, its difficult to get the support to bring it back. Your pool is a historical landmark. Its also the only pool in Van Wert County. You need to increase the PSAs to the media and reach out to other communities. You also need to talk positively about the pool and encourage other communities to see its value. Resident Vicki Gossman outlined other benefits to having the pool. People dont just swim when theyre here, Gossman said. They eat out, they do their grocery shopping. Gossman also proposed fundraisers to support the operations of the pool. Committee Chair Mark Clement reminded residents that council cant legally run fundraisers to support city functions. That activity would have to be supported by civic groups. Parks Superintendent Craig Mansfield said the parks and pool already have a great group of supporters behind them.

Mayor Michael Gallmeier named George the citys temporary safety service director on Tuesday.

I have given this a lot of thought and believe that

Food drive items total more than $2,450

Information submitted FORT JENNINGS The Fort Jennings Student Council held a food drive at the high school Nov. 19-21. It was a contest between the classes they called The Food Fight and Toiletry Tantrum. Each class was asked to compete against the other classes by bringing in food items such as canned vegetables, Raman noodles, peanut butter, toilet paper, laundry detergent and other items of need. Clothing was donated on Wednesday of the competition. All items were donated to the Putnam County Thrift Store for use in the county. According to advisor Jeff Jostpille, the object of the contest was to have the highest points bought in on the days of the competition. The items were pre-assigned points and would be brought in and placed on the stage with all items from their class. Everyone knew what items to collect and what they were worth through

With the items collected are, from left, Jeff Hoersten, Nicole Ricker, Kyle Maag, Jamie Saum, Troy Ricker, Connor Wallenhorst, Alyssa Louth, Griffin Morman, Erik Klausing, Michael Fields and Craig Stewart (reclining). (Submitted photo)

announcements and signs hung around the building. One of the two food days would be doubles-points day and the other would be triple-points day but that would not be determined until the assembly on Friday after the competition. The idea was to get together as a class and devise a plan that would maximize the point totals for the amount of food and clothing that students had collected. See DRIVE, page 11

Americans not alone in enjoying Thanksgiving feast

BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com While Americans are sitting down to their annual Thanksgiving dinner Thursday, they will be joined by Brazil and China to express gratitude and enjoy grand feasts. In the US., it is a time to remember the pilgrims who celebrated the autumn harvest with a feast of thanks known as the First Thanksgiving Day Feast, which was held as a gesture of thanks to Almighty God. It was celebrated in Plymouth in 1621. President George Washington proclaimed the first nation-wide thanksgiving celebration in America marking November 26, 1789, as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and single favors of Almighty God. The Ambassador of Brazil, Joaquim Nabuco, who was fascinated with the concept of Thanksgiving, proposed a law which was signed by president Gaspar Dutra in 1949 establishing a National Day of Thanksgiving. In 1966, Brazil designated the fourth Thursday of November to be its official Thanksgiving holiday. Dia de Acao de Gracas Thanksgiving Day in Portuguese is marked with people offering their prayers and appreciation to God for the abundant harvest and all His blessings. Houses are decorated with a harvest season theme and the Thanksgiving feast is prepared and shared among families, neighbors and friends. The Brazilian holiday follows the American tradition but is unique for its colorful, flamboyant carnivals. With the spread of western culture, Thanksgiving is celebrated in many parts of China, with the majority of the observances for the holiday taking place in the city of Hong Kong. The Chinese follow the American date as the tale of Indians, pilgrims and sailing ships are more familiar to them. In schools, teachers explain the meaning of Thanksgiving a day to thank God for the blessings bestowed on humanity to their students. See FEAST, page 11

Thanksgiving traffic safety reminder

Information submitted LIMA To prevent fatal, as well as serious injury crashes, local law enforcement agencies in Allen County will be out over the long Thanksgiving holiday in full force from now until Dec. 2 enforcing traffic laws, including seat belt use, impaired driving and speeding as well as other risky behaviors. When worn correctly, seat belts are proven to reduce the risk of fatal injury to frontseat occupants by 45 percent and by 60 percent in pickup trucks, SUVs and minivans. During 2012, seven people died in seven fatal crashes in Allen County; however, 20 people were vehicle occupants in those fatal crashes. Of the seven fatalities, 57 percent chose not to use appropriate safety equipment, including seat belts and one motorcyclist who did not wear a helmet. Of the 20 vehicle occupants, 61.5 percent chose to wear a seat belt, avoiding serious or even fatal injury. In 2012, 10,322 (4.6 percent increase over 2011) people died in highway crashes across the nation, involving a driver or motorcycle operator with an illegal blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher; that is one person every 53 minutes. In Ohio, during the same time, 470 people died in a crash involving an impaired driver; in Allen County, three died in such crashes. We can prevent even one more person from dying or being seriously injured in an impaired driving crash. It is up to us to CHOOSE to make our roads safer: CHOOSE to use a seat belt; it is the best protection against death or serious injury in a crash; If you CHOOSE to drink CHOOSE not to drive; CHOOSE to plan a safe way home before the festivities begin; Before drinking, CHOOSE to designate a nondrinking driver; If youre impaired, CHOOSE to call for a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation; If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, CHOOSE to call law enforcement; And remember, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. If you know someone who is about to drive or ride a motorcycle while impaired, CHOOSE to take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely.

Baptist Village to require Auglaize St. tap in Marion Church hosts

BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com OTTOVILLE During Monday nights village council meeting, members discussed mandating Auglaize Street residents to tap into the new sewer system and the time frame they will have to have the work done. Mayor Ron Miller said homes inspections will be performed to see if residents have a sump pump. Council member Tony Langhals asked what would happen if residents did not have the work completed by a certain date. Either we supply the contractor or they use their own contractor, Miller stated. Councilman Jerry Markward said if it is not done, the village will supply the contractor. They had a chance to get their own contractor, Markward said. Council members Tim Rieger said its only residents that have sump pumps that are being asking to tap in and not those who do not have a sump pump or basement. Aspen Energy Corporation representative Marc Hollinger addressed council explaining electric residential aggregation and establishing a program for the village. Aggregation is a process where communities combine their residents into a large buying group, which results in increased buying power and stable rates for members, Hollinger said. Hollinger explained that opt-out is the easiest way for people to shop and residents need to do nothing to participate in the program they just have to consent to establishing the program. He said that opt-out aggregation programs usually provide better rates than opt-in program due to a larger aggregation group and corresponding higher energy demand. In order for the village to create an aggregation program, a majority of the residents have to pass a ballot issue authorizing the village to negotiate the rates on their behalf. After the ballot issue, the village negotiates rates and chooses a supplier. All eligible residents are automatically included in the program unless they choose to opt-out. Prior to enrollment, all eligible residents are mailed notices detailing the program and are offered a specific time frame to remain in the program or to not participate by opting-out. Once it is agreed on, not everybody is locked in and those residents who vote against it can opt out, Miller stated. Hollinger said that the initial enrollment is usually around 80-90 percent and the implementation takes close to 30 days. We will take it to the voters who will have 60 days to make a decision and shop through different suppliers, Miller said. Its a way of pooling folks together. In the Board of Public Affairs (BPA) report, Dan Honigford and Phil Hilvers said some residents have been questioning them about tapping into Auglaize Street sewer and would like to get the resolution approved and get started with the work. The new water meter reader will not be here in time for the training of its use before the next meter reading date, Honigford stated. It has to be built. In October, council was informed that the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) application that was submitted by Brian Goubeaux from Choice One Engineering in September for sewer lining Auglaize Street sanitary line with a price tag of $64,900 is in the running to be funded. Miller said the village should know more about the $58,400 grant for the sanitary line in the near future. The grant will be awarded sometime in June or July, Miller said. Maintenance Supervisor Barry Koester presented a quote for approximately $6,000 from Mr. Manhole for the repair of five manholes four on Church Street and one on Main Street which have asphalt that heaves around the manhole. During the winter, it becomes a maintenance issues with snow plow blades catching on the asphalt. The asphalt will be ground down so plows do not catch on it, Koester said. The next council meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Dec. 23 in council chambers.

We had a few days of sunshine this week. The girls took advantage of it and raked up the rest of the leaves in our yard. We still have some here and there but the most part of them are picked up. What a relief before the weather gets too much cooler. Daughter Elizabeth is off all week from the factory and the school-age children will only have a three-day school week. I bought two turkeys for our Thanksgiving dinner. Both are around 20 pounds. I have only one oven so hopefully I can figure out a way to cook both at the same time. It seems like after Thanksgiving Day is over, Christmas seems really close already. Every year just seems to go faster than the one before. Every year we are all another year older. Our third-oldest child, Verena, will be 16 in a few weeks. I cannot believe she is that old already. Next year daughter Elizabeth will leave her

teenage years. Daughter Susan will turn 18 in January. Son Benjamin is in his last year of school and daughter Loretta has only one more after this one. I treasure evenings when we all gather around our table to eat supper. Everyone shares about how their days went. Making memories! The girls enjoy singing as they wash the supper dishes. It makes you want to stay right in this stage of life. We know it wont always be like this but trust the Lord will guide us through the years. Time does not stand still for anyone. I probably baked my first and last gooseberry pie. It was not a hit with Joe and the children. I wasnt too fond of the gooseberry taste but am glad I got to try it. Today is laundry day. It looks like we will have to hang it in the basement. Looks like rain. We had a storm go through Sunday afternoon while we were at Jacob and Emmas house

after church services. The tornado sirens in the nearby town went off. On Monday, this area was without electricity so the public school was closed for the day. The children were excited to have a day off. Everything looked dark outside Monday morning with all the neighbors yard lights out. How thankful we are when a bad storm passes through and not much damage. Other areas were not quite so fortunate. May God be with them and His blessings to all and everyone have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving Day. This is a great soup for a cold winters day after all the turkey leftovers are gone! Cabbage Soup A couple meaty beef bones 1 small head cabbage (chopped) 4 big carrots (chopped) 12 stalks celery 2 onions (chopped) 4 6 potatoes (chopped) 2 quarts tomato chunks Cook until all is tender. Instead of using beef bones, chunks of beef can also be used.

President Catherine Hammons opened the November meeting of the Delphos CLC Court 40 with prayer. The trustees led the praying of the Rosary. Secretary Barbara Bockey read the roll call of officers and the minutes of last months meeting. One trustee was absent. Treasurer Mary Lou Beckman read the treasurers report. Beckman suggested the council purchase 100 postage stamps before the price goes up next year. All members were in agreement. Final plans for the Christmas dinner were made. The dinner will be held on at 6 p.m. Dec. 3 at the K of C hall. Irma Hilvers made a motion to have a $5 gift exchange for those who want to participate. Betty Ricker seconded the motion. Members trimmed a tree at the Delphos Canal Commission Museum on Nov. 12. They used mittens, gloves and pencils that will be distributed to those in

need. Carol Ricker made a motion to donate $25 to Vancrest Healthcare Center and Sara Jane Living Center. Lois Blankmeier seconded the motion. The present officers and trustees have agreed to remain in their positions for another year. They are: President Hammons, Vice President Raylene Fischer, Secretary Barbara Bockey, Treasurer Beckman and Trustees Hilvers, Leona Berelsman and Ruth Calvelage. Al members signed and wrote notes in Christmas cards to be sent to servicemen. There were two birthdays celebrated in November: Mary Thitoff and Carol Ricker. Carlene Gerdeman won the Attendance Award; and Lois Blankmeyer, Fischer, Hilvers and Calvelage won the 50-50. The next meeting will be the Christmas party at 6 p.m. Dec. 3. Chairladies are Gerdeman and Beckman, with Irma Hilvers, Jan Hilvers and Bockey as the committee.

Taflinger, Verhoff; Fort Jennings, chimmoeller 2, JV score: 38-34 Jennings Fighting Scots quell Beaver women By Ryan Schadewald Sports information assistant WOOSTER - The Bluffton University womens basketball team fell victim to an early firsthalf run and came up short at the College of Wooster, 86-68, on Tuesday. The Fighting Scots opened the game scoring 24 of the first 34 points and never trailed throughout the contest. The loss knocked the Beavers back to the .500 mark at 2-2, while Wooster stayed undefeated with a record of 5-0. Bluffton had four scorers in double figures, led by forward Brooke Ruffer (Stryker), who scored 16 points and grabbed eight boards in just 18 minutes of action before fouling out. Fellow sophomore Kaitlyn Pennekamp (Hamilton/ Ross) chipped in 15 points thanks to 3-of-10 shooting on triples. Freshman phenom Rachel Beining (Ottoville) had her fourth straight double-digit point total to start the season with 14 counters, as well as eight rebounds. Sophomore Taylor

Whitaker (Mansfield/Lexington) put up 10 points for the Beavers. The home team came out hot from the start, getting out to that quick 24-10 lead in the first nine minutes of the game and never looking back. A Whitaker deep ball trimmed the Wooster down to single digits before another Fighting Scot run pushed the lead back to 14. A Pennekamp layin would again make it a nine-point game before a 13-2 run gave Wooster a 45-26 lead at the 2:00 mark of the first half. Taylor Whitaker countered with five points to lead Bluffton on a 7-2 run to end the first half (47-33). The second period never really provided much of an opportunity for the visitors to get themselves back into the game. After the Scots went up by 18 points early in the second half, the Beavers were able to make one final run at Wooster by going on a 10-0 spurt, which began with a Ruffer bucket and freebie, as well as a big three from Pennekamp and a couple more foul shots from Beining that cut the deficit to 56-48 at the 12:56 mark.

OSU, Michigan go different ways after 2011 game

From Media Sources COLUMBUS A lot has happened in the two years since players from Ohio State and Michigan the Buckeyes with their heads down, the Wolverines wildly celebrating left the field at Michigan Stadium. After beating their rivals seven years in a row, the Buckeyes lost that 2011 game 40-34. At the time, it seemed as if the game might mark a tectonic shift for the two teams. Those were dark days for Ohio State, which had seven losses that season, its most since 1897. And the NCAA was about to levy sanctions that would rock the program. Michigan, under first-year coach Brady Hoke, captured its 10th win and appeared to have recaptured its national prominence after the woeful era of Rich Rodriguez. That one game appeared to have marked a sea change for both of the storied programs. Or did it? The third-ranked Buckeyes have won almost every game since and are in the thick of the national championship chase under coach Urban Meyer, who has not lost on their sideline. It is completely different. We were reeling my freshman year, defensive tackle Michael Bennett said. Then you have where we are a really strong team that is getting better every week. The confidence is through the roof. Meanwhile, Hoke is dealing with yet another late-season swoon and the maize and blue have more doubters than believers. Will Saturdays 110th edition of The Game flip things yet again? It was a nadir for Ohio State back in 2011. A season of innuendo, defections and investigations had resulted in the forced departure of coach Jim Tressel earlier that season. He was dismissed for failing to disclose

that several of his players had most likely received improper benefits from the subject of a federal drug probe. Defensive assistant Luke Fickell took over a team that was weakened further when three-year starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor jumped to the NFL. The rudderless Buckeyes were hanging on, winners of six of their 11 games, heading into the annual joust with the Wolverines. Freshman quarterback Braxton Miller overthrew a wide-open DeVier Posey in the final minute for what could have been a game-winning 76-yard touchdown. It was heartbreaking, safety C.J. Barnett said. We let the great state of Ohio down. A month later, Ohio State hired Meyer, an Ohio native who had spent a year as an ESPN analyst after winning two national titles at Florida. He didnt coach in the bowl game, which Ohio State lost in a final bit of irony to Florida 24-17. See OSU, page 7

The Unmentionables and its not Bugs Bunny!

By JIM METCALFE Sports Editor jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com Its THAT week again. THAT refers to The Game, the archrivalry between Ohio State and That Team Up North Whose Name Should Not Be Spoken In Public. Just kidding almost!!! This is the week you gotta have fun with your friends who are fans of THEM, isnt it? Unfortunately, That Team isnt having the kind of season Buckeyes fans need not want; theres a part of me that wishes THEY would lose every game THEY play for them to secure a spot in the BCS title game. The Bucks need lots of help to get there: not only must they beat the aforementioned - and probably badly and That Team Up North State in the Big 10 title game but they need either Alabama to lose either this week in the Iron Bowl against Auburn (which could happen) or in the SEC title game or Florida State to lose this week to Florida when Hades freezes over or in the ACC title game. For the Buckeyes to compete at the highest levels from here on, they not only need to get the blue-chippers that Urban Meyer will bring in and win games but they need the Big 10 teams to also get their share of blue-chippers so they can win their games, especially non-league and hopefully not against Crawfis College! Is losing a football game worth a life? A woman at the Oakland Raiders O.co Coliseum the former Oakland-Alameda

Metcalfes Musings


County Coliseum tried to jump from the upper deck to her death after the teams loss Sunday. Fortunately for her, 61-year-old Marine Corps veteran Donnie Navidad was there to lunge forward and save her life. She plunged 45 feet and he broke her fall enough as he also fell to the concrete to prevent her death, though she currently remains in the hospital in critical condition. This was not just an accident, either; Navidad was among a group of fans urging her not to jump. He is being hailed as a hero but as a veteran, he humbly deflects that deserved praise; how many people would have done nothing? He risked his own life to save a stranger added hed do it again in a minute. I do not pretend to know what other demons this woman was facing to make her try a permanent solution to a temporary problem but I re-iterate the question: is losing a football game worth a life? This is along the same lines. GQ has put together an online documentary series entitled Casualties of the Gridiron, reporting on what can happen to former players once the lights go dim on their careers.

One is about the plan of former quarterback Ray Lucas for how he was going to end his life, one he fortunately did not carry out. Basically, the reason for the series is put faces to the struggles these men are facing with mental, physical or monetary issues among maothersny and why many of them are either contemplating suicide or have actually done so. As Ive written before and probably will again sometime in the future because this issue is in the forefront of issues facing the National Football League I have no clue as to what its like to play at the highest levels of any sport, what these men had to do (the work theyve put in, for example) just to get to that level and stay there and what they go through when the game or their body tells them its time to go. I think it is very apropos for the NFL to take care of these guys without them, the NFL isnt even remotely what it is today as best they can and either provide resources directly or point them in the right direction. In all honesty, I believe that most of these guys actually did know the risks of what they were doing and willingly played the game for the sake of the game; its what they always wanted to do. They dont want a handout but a hand up because they do need help. Since we dont publish Thanksgiving Day, this column is going in todays issue. Happy/Merry/Dont get TOO full Thanksgiving!


(Continued from page 6)

Since then, Meyer and the Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0 Big Ten) have played 23 games and won them all a school record. Meanwhile, Michigan has fallen off its perch. This is a big game for us and for this program, Michigan senior defensive tackle Mike Martin had said after the signature victory against the Buckeyes in 2011. For us to take this step as a team is huge and its something were never going to forget, these fans, and this fan base is never going to forget. If not forgotten, that victory certainly has faded. Soon after the Ohio State win, Hokes club beat No. 17 Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl but has gone 15-9 since. That includes a 26-21 loss to the Buckeyes a year ago. This year, the Wolverines (7-4, 3-4) climbed to No. 11 after

opening with five wins. Since then, theyve had dramatic upticks and lulls in production on offense. Theyve offered up yards and points on defense and, unlike almost Michigan teams in memory, have been unable to run for positive yardage. The fans are restless. There are murmurs that Hoke isnt recruiting or coaching up to the stratospheric standards set by the likes of Bo Schembechler, Fielding Yost and Fritz Crisler. Some of the Michigan players remember what it was like not so long ago. Really, what I loved was seeing the look on those seniors faces as they walked off, how excited they were and happy they were to beat Ohio that year, said cornerback Courtney Avery, who sealed the 2011 victory with an interception of Miller with 39 seconds left. Im just hoping and working so our senior class can walk off with the same excitement.

by Gary Clothier Q: My mum used to say, Heavens to Murgatroyd! Where did that phrase originate? Is it an American expression? I noticed there is a girl from Australia on Dancing With the Stars named Peta Murgatroyd. -- B.D., El Segundo, Calif. A: Heavens to Murgatroyd! is, indeed, an American expression and dates from the mid1900s. The expression was popularized by the cartoon character Snagglepuss on The Yogi Bear Show in the 1960s. The phrase is a variant of the older phrase Heavens to Betsy! Snagglepuss may have popularized the phrase, but he was not the original user Peta Murgatroyd -- that was Bert Lahr (the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz) in the 1944 film Meet the People. Murgatroyd was a common surname of the English aristocracy, which may be where Peta Murgatroyds name came from. By the way, her dance partner is Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver.

By Bernice Bede Osol
more into your appearance and hone your creative skills. Love will highlight your day if you show affection and offer romance to someone you fancy. COPYRIGHT 2013 United Feature Syndicate, Inc. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2013 Love and laziness must not lead to a nonproductive year. Spending more than you make or living on the edge will entice you. Change is required, but pick and choose whats most important before you make a move. Get moving, and youll have no regrets. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Mingle with your peers and find out where you stand. Share your thoughts, but keep your personal preferences a secret. Dont get angry when action is needed. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Keep your emotions in check and your mind on what needs to be done. You will have opportunities to meet potential partners if you mingle with people who share your concerns. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- A lack of communication isnt always a bad thing. Take time to think about the way you feel and what you want to convey before you make a move that may limit future discussions. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Lend a helping hand, and you will end up receiving as much in return. A personal partnership will undergo emotional stress if you cannot agree on a financial matter. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Set up investments that will give you a tax break. An emotional issue due to an unpredictable incident is likely to influence your living arrangements and your love life.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Do your best to help others, but dont meddle or you will end up in an awkward position. A physical activity will help you feel rejuvenated and ready to take on new interests. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Look at the way others live and the interests and differences between yourself and those in your community. Sharing your philosophy or way of doing things will encourage new friendships. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Listen to any complaints being made at home and show compassion for anyone going through a tough time. Your attentiveness will help change the way someone thinks about and treats you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Personal investing and moneymaking ideas will lead to victory. Suggestions you make will put you in the drivers seat at meetings. Offer an unusual solution. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Sensitive issues at home or at work will leave you questioning your next move. Dont procrastinate when you should be dealing with issues swiftly. Dont let emotions intervene. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A secret is likely to be divulged. Protect your reputation, assets and future prospects. Personal changes must be given great thought before you proceed. Love is in the stars. COPYRIGHT 2013 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.


THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2013 Look for any opportunity to implement change into your life personally or professionally. Hone skills and invest in the things you really want to accomplish.

Adaptability will put you ahead of any competition you face. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -You will have difficulties with foreigners or while traveling or taking part in cultural events. Concentrate on whatever job youve been given and refuse to let last-minute changes upset you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Pitch in and help, and you will avoid complaints. Size up your financial situation and look for a way to turn what you have to offer into a lucrative endeavor.

Stand up for your rights and follow through with your plans. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Truth will make a difference to the outcome of a situation. A change in the way you do things will allow you to offer your skills to a wider variety of end users. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Socializing with friends or peers will introduce you to hobbies or activities that will help you grow mentally or spiritually. Travel and communication will improve personal relationships. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Dont let whats happening in your personal life discourage you. Protect what you have worked so hard to acquire.

Encourage someone to join in and help you reach your goals. Love is on the rise. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Size up your situation at home and at work, but dont make a fuss or start a feud over something that is best left to fizzle out. Emotions must be controlled.

The culture has drawn new meaning from the holiday and also thanks teachers, parents and friends on that day. The Chinese culture begins preparations for the holiday by decorating their homes with big pumpkins, corns, candy and bowls of fruits and nuts to show abundance of food for the year. In addition, they use table clothes with prints of autumn leaves and light candles as decor. In the US, Thanksgiving dinner is comprised of a number of traditional dishes: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet corn and other fall vegetables and pumpkin pie are commonly found on the menu. Many vegetarians or vegans eat Torfuky, a vegetarian turkey made of Tofu. More popular in recent years is the turducken. Turducken is a dish consisting of a deboned chicken stuffed into a deboned duck, which is in turn stuffed into a deboned turkey. The rest of the gaps are stuffed, sometimes with a highly seasoned breadcrumb mixture or sausage meat, although some versions have a different stuffing for each bird. American football commentator John Madden popularized turducken during an NFL broadcast. While announcing for CBS Sports, he displayed a turducken and began carving it. Thanksgiving meals in Brazil are Peru (turkey in Portuguese), the traditional main course of the holiday feast. Other dishes prepared are mashed potatoes, corn stuffing, pumpkin pie, sweet potato dish and Chile pork crackling. Cranberries are not readily available in Brazil to make traditional cranberry sauce. Instead, Brazilians make jaboticaba sauce from jaboticaba fruits, which are very similar to and a perfect substitute for cranberries. Spiritual and religious organizations in the US offer services and organized events with Thanksgiving themes during the weekend prior to the holiday and/or on the weekend that follows. Traditionally, families begin the celebrations by saying grace before dinner. The Brazilians attend Masses and offer their prayers and thanks to God. Many Brazilians participate in Day of Grace rallies and observe the Action of Grace as a part of the Thanksgiving ceremonies. In Hong Kong, Thanksgiving is popularly known as Ladin or Ladainha, which literally means a litany to the Virgin Mary. During the ritual, people thank God for all the material and spiritual benefits. The holiday function is sponsored by a different person every year who either seeks benefits or has been lucky enough to have Gods special grace. Christians prepare for Thanksgiving celebrations by purchasing wheat and gram flour, candles, wine and colored tinsel paper. A temporary platform/altar is constructed which is decorated with flowers and vines. Celebrations include singing of hymns and prayers and the village local violinist/choirmaster conducts the entire show of singing of litany.

Rain and snow threaten to snarl holiday travel

NEW YORK (AP) Thanksgiving travelers scrambled to book earlier flights Tuesday to avoid a sprawling storm bearing down on the East Coast with a messy mix of snow, rain and wind that threatened to snarl one of the busiest travel days of the year and ground giant balloon versions of Snoopy and SpongeBob SquarePants in the Macys parade. The characters that soar between Manhattan skyscrapers every year may not lift off Thursday if sustained winds exceed 23 mph and gusts exceed 34 mph, according to city rules enacted after fierce winds in 1997 caused a Cat in the Hat balloon to topple a light pole and seriously injure a spectator. Current forecasts call for sustained winds of 20 mph and gusts of 36 mph. At this time, it is too early to make any

IRS pushes to rein in tax-exempt political groups

determinations on the flight of the giant balloons, said Macys spokesman Orlando Veras. On Thanksgiving morning, Macys works closely with the NYPD, who, based on real time weather data and the official regulations determine if the balloons will fly and at what heights. Balloons have been grounded only once in the parades 87-year history, when bad weather kept them from flying in 1971. Theyre set to be inflated in Manhattan this evening. Meanwhile, meteorologists warned that the storm, which has moved across the country, would almost certainly upset holiday travel plans today for those hoping to visit loved ones in the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Many travelers were moving to earlier flights, taking advantage of airlines policies to waive their normal change fees.

WASHINGTON (AP) The Obama administration Tuesday launched a bid to rein in the use of tax-exempt groups for political campaigning. The effort is an attempt to reduce the role of loosely regulated big-money political outfits like GOP political guru Karl Roves Crossroads GPS and the pro-Obama Priorities USA. The Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Department said they want to prohibit such groups from using candidate-related political activity like running ads, registering voters or distributing campaign literature as activities that qualify them to be tax-exempt social welfare organizations.

We have the Parks Group that takes care of about 50 percent of the baseball expenses with their banner program and they also take care of the football field with the advertising at the stadium. They just put $3,500 worth of new roofs on the dugouts, Mansfield said.The Kiwanis have put in $275,000 worth of new play equipment at our parks and the Rotary Club stepped up and put the new roof on the shelterhouse at Stadium Park and the Optimists have supported projects. We have been receiving money from the Dienstberger Foundation to keep up with the pool repairs. We have many groups who step up and help us. Mayor Michael Gallmeier asked what the cost of shutting down and starting back up the pool would be. The things we would have to look at would be the pool liner in the deep and the filter tanks, Mansfield said. When you have debris that sits on the liner for months, it could damage it and discolor it. When you start the pool back up, you have to make sure the liner is clean so lifeguards can see all swimmers in the deep. A new liner in the deep would cost about $40,000. He went on to say the filter tanks are on their last legs and he had planned to put in for a Dienstberger Foundation Grant to replace the filter media at about $63,000. If we would shut those down for a year or two, they probably would not come back up, Mansfield said. They are already deteriorating and rusting. The committee stressed that while no one wants to close the pool or have the parks unattended, council is still facing a $483,247 spending deficit for 2014 and it has to come from somewhere. The committee asked Auditor Tom Jettinghoff to retrieve figures on a property tax levy to raise the funds for the parks and rec activities for the next council meeting at 7 p.m. Monday.

Proceeds go to the churchs youth group. Five FFA chapters participated in the 1989 contest in which the proper use of motions and other parliamentary skills were demonstrated.

Members of the team were Jason Ropp, David Kemler, Jay Evans, Chad Overholt, Craig Ringwald, Bill Lehman, Andy Wannamaker, Matt Fisher, Mark Roediger, Jason Schaffner, Chuck Stephenson and student advisor Ben Etgen. In a fast-paced game that featured some hot shooting by both the 198889 Blue Jay varsity and the young Old-timers, the varsity came away with a hard-earned 44-38 victory. Scoring slowed down in the last period as Larry Geise opened scoring followed by a tipin by 1982 graduate Alan Kortokrax and a shot by his teammate Ron Schomaeker. The varsity came back with some baskets by Curt Mager and Doug Etgen. The varsity pulled ahead in the last minute as the Old-timers were forced to foul in an effort to get the ball.

WASHINGTON (AP) Days after China asserted greater military control over a swath of the East China Sea to bolster claims to a cluster of disputed islands, the U.S. defied the move Tuesday as it flew two B-52 bombers through the area. The U.S. said what it described as a training mission was not flown to respond to Chinas latest military maneuver, yet the dramatic flights made clear that the U.S. will not recognize the

new territorial claims that Beijing laid out over the weekend. The two unarmed U.S. B-52 bombers took off from their home base in Guam and flew through Chinas newly designated air defense zone, then returned to base, U.S. officials said. The bombers were in the zone for less than an hour, thundering across the Pacific skies during midday there, the officials said, adding that the aircraft encountered no problems.

The young woman reported for her university final examination which consisted of yes/no type questions. She took her seat in the examination hall and stared at the question paper for five minutes. In a fit of inspiration, she took her purse out, removed a coin and started tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet - Yes for Heads and No for Tails. Within half an hour she was all done, whereas the rest of the class was still sweating it out. During the last few minutes, she was seen desperately throwing the coin, muttering and sweating. The moderator, alarmed, approached her and asked what was going on. Her reply was, I finished the exam in half and hour, but Im rechecking my answers.
