Telling The Tri-Countys Story Since 1869

Saturday, March 1, 2014

Delphos, Ohio one elderly individual received a call and was told she would be arrested at work if she did not provide the information they requested. Its everywhere and not just in the big cities, Metzger added. Criminals seem to always be a step ahead. Metzger cautions customers who receive suspicious emails. She said if the recipient hovers over the hyper link provided within the email which will direct them to another website, they should check the information on the link before clicking on it. If the website address looks like it is not associated with the institution maybe it looks odd or its an address out of the country do not click on the link. See FRAUD, page 10

ID fraud claims new victim every 2 seconds

BY STEPHANIE GROVES Staff Writer sgroves@delphosherald.com DELPHOS Identity theft occurs when a criminal obtains and uses someone elses personal information credit card numbers, bank account numbers, insurance information or Social Security number to purchase goods or services fraudulently. Identity theft is a state and federal crime. According to Javelin Strategy & Researchs 2014 Identity Fraud Study, there was one new identity fraud victim every two seconds in the US in 2013 and the number of victims climbed to 13.1 million. Delphos Police Chief Kyle Fittro reported that somebody stealing a plastic financial instrument credit or debit card and making purchases is pretty common with three or four reports each month. Most of our bad guys are not sophisticated; they steal cards, make purchases and then we find them, Fittro explained. Conversely, there are jurisdictional boundaries and little we can do if someone out of state or out of the country gets a hold of account information and makes purchases online. Fittro explained thieves who steal checks or credit cards are committing multiple crimes. If its a credit card used, the crimes include theft and misuse, Fittro detailed. If they steal and use a check, the crimes are theft, forgery and uttering [passing a check]. First Federals Community Banking Center Manager Cindy Metzger said identity theft is a huge problem and there are frequent notifications of new scams targeting banking customers. An example of a phishing scam is where a customer is contacted by email, where a criminal posing as a representative for an account tells the victim their information was compromised and requests confirmation of their personal information. Thats a prime example of how it all gets started, Metzger said. These criminals use fear as a tactic to get information. Metzger described a vishing scam (automated phone calls from an organization trying to obtain financial or other confidential information) where

Long Man: A novel by Amy Greene A river called Long Man has coursed through East Tennessee from time immemorial, bringing sustenance to the people who farm along its banks and who trade among its small towns. But as Long Man opens, the Tennessee Valley Authoritys plans to dam the river and flood the town of Yuneetah for the sake of progressto bring electricity and jobs to the regionare about to take effect. Just a few days remain before the river will rise, and most of the town has been evacuated. Among the holdouts is a young, headstrong mother, Annie Clyde Dodson, whose ancestors have lived for generations on her mountaintop farm; shell do anything to ensure that her three-year-old daughter, Gracie, will inherit the familys land.

NONFICTION Where Nobody Knows Your Name: Life In the Minor Leagues of Baseball by John Feinstein B as eb alls minor leagues are a paradox. For some players, the minors are a glorious launching pad toward years of fame and fortune; for others, a crash-landing pad when injury or poor play forces a big leaguer back to a life of obscure ballparks and cramped buses instead of Fenway Park and plush charter planes. Focusing exclusively on the Triple-A level, one step beneath Major League Baseball, Feinstein introduces readers to nine unique men: three pitchers, three position players, two managers, and an umpire. Through their compelling stories, Feinstein pulls back the veil on a league that is chock-full of gifted baseball players, managers, and umpires who are all one moment away from getting called upor backto the majors. The stories are hard to believe: a first-round draft pick and pitching ace who rocketed to majorleague success before finding himself suddenly out of the game, hatching a presumptuous plan to get one more shot at the mound; a home run hitting former World Series hero who lived the dream, then bounced among six teams before facing the prospects of an unceremonious end to his career; a bigleague All-Star who, in the span of five months, went from being completely out of baseball to becoming a star in the ALDS, then signing a $10 million contract; and a well-liked designated hitter who toiled for 18 seasons in the minorsa record he never wanted to setbefore facing his final, highly emotional chance for a call-up to the big leagues. From Raleigh to Pawtucket, from Lehigh Valley to Indianapolis and beyond, Where Nobody Knows Your Name gives readers an intimate look at a baseball world not normally seen by the fans. Feinstein gets to the heart of the human stories in a uniquely compelling way, crafting a masterful book that stands alongside his very best works. The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies by Erik Brynjolfsson In recent years, Googles autonomous cars have logged thousands of miles on American highways and IBMs Watson trounced the best human Jeopardy! players. Digital technologieswith hardware, software and networks at their corewill in the near future diagnose diseases more accurately than doctors can, apply enormous data sets to transform retailing and accomplish many tasks once considered uniquely human. In The Second Machine Age MITs Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee two thinkers at the forefront of their field reveal the forces driving the reinvention of our lives and our economy. As the full impact of digital technologies is felt, we will realize immense bounty in the form of dazzling personal technology, advanced infrastructure, and near-boundless access to the cultural items that enrich our lives. Amid this bounty will also be wrenching change. Professions of all kindsfrom lawyers to truck driverswill be forever upended. Companies will be forced to transform or die. Recent economic indicators reflect this shift: fewer people are working, and wages are falling even as productivity and profits soar. Drawing on years of research and up-to-theminute trends, Brynjolfsson and McAfee identify the best strategies for survival and offer a new path to prosperity. These include revamping education so that it prepares people for the next economy instead of the last one, designing new collaborations that pair brute processing power with human ingenuity and embracing policies that make sense in a radically transformed landscape. A fundamentally optimistic book, The Second Machine Age will alter how we think about issues of technological, societal, and economic progress.

January storm could be one of costliest

COLUMBUS (AP) Ohio insurance officials say the early January deep freeze, accompanied by heavy snow and ice, will end up being one of the costliest winter storms in the state in recent decades. Preliminary figures released Thursday by the Ohio Insurance Institute show that the bills for broken and frozen water pipes, ice buildup and wind damage Jan. 5-8 will end up running from $97.8 million to $124.4 million.

The marvelous thing about human beings is that we are perpetually reaching for the stars. The more we have, the more we want. And for this reason, we never have it all. Joyce Brothers (1927-2013) psychologist

A long winters nap

This column is on a topic near and dear to my heart naps. I love naps. Not just any ol nap. A good nap. Nothing ruins a nap quite like waking up and feeling more tired than when you laid down. Ugh! What a huge waste of time. When I saw the article How long to nap for the biggest brain benefits I had to learn more. Research must be done. I had to read and unravel the mystery of the nap. The Wall Street journal article offered recommendations for planning the perfect nap, including how long to nap and when. Sign me up. To boost alertness, a 10-20-minute power nap is ideal. This short respite usually limits one to the lighter stages of non-rapid eye movement sleep, making it easier to hit the ground running after waking up. The article also listed the 30-minute nap. This seems to be best to avoid as studies show sleeping this long may cause sleep inertia, a hangover-like groggy feeling that lasts for up to 30 minutes after waking up, before the naps restorative benefits become apparent. The 60-minute nap is good for improving memory of facts, faces and names. It includes slow-wave sleep, the deepest type. The downside is some grogginess when waking up. The 90-minute nap, my personal fave, is a full cycle of sleep, meaning the lighter and deeper stages, including rapid eyemovement sleep. This sweet hour and a half of blissful slumber leads to improved emotional and procedural memory and creativity. A nap of this length usually


On the Other hand

avoids sleep inertia, making it easier to wake up. So I can cross the 10-20-minute power nap off my list because it takes me at least that long to fall asleep. I lie there and think and listen to my heart beat and the sounds outside and think some more and then its over. I accomplished nothing other than lying still for a few moments. The 30-minute nap also seems to be a waste of time because it takes an hour to nap and then recover from the nap and Im not sure I wouldnt feel the same as when I started. Again, a waste of time. So were left with the 60- and 90-minute versions. Still listed with a downside, Ill scratch the hour nap off the list, too. That leaves the 90-minute nap. The holy grail of naps. It checks off the items on the list of why Im taking a nap in the first place. Now I just need to figure out the best time to take a nap. It seems between noon and 4 p.m. produced the best results. Thank goodness. My urge to nap usually falls within those hours. So now Im off to conduct my own research. It must be thorough and repetitive to gain the best results. Happy napping!


DEAR EDITOR: There has been much controversy over the past several months regarding the potential building of a Dollar General just outside the Village of Ottoville. I am writing this letter to let the public know that myself and others are NOT in favor of the proposed location, directly across from Ottoville Local School. US 224 is a 50-mph zone in front of the proposed location. In conversations with an engineer at ODOT, this stands to remain a 50-mph zone even with the development of a Dollar General. This is a matter of public safety when it comes to the children of Ottoville. There are residents that are in favor of a Dollar General coming to town, and there are residents that are opposed to Dollar General coming to town. All residents Ive spoken with; are opposed to the proposed location for safety reasons. Ottoville Village Council (of which I am a member) voted on Monday to allow the developer to tap into the forced main for reasons of hooking to the villages sewer system. I voted against allowing this to happen. This proposed development will have to request annexation to the village and also will have to ask for a change in zoning from agricultural to commercial. I will vote against these requests as well. Over the course of the past several months, we have heard from many residents, business owners and school officials that oppose the proposed location. At Mondays meeting, there were, for the first time, several people who spoke in favor of having a Dollar General coming to town. While I respect their opinions, I found two things to be very ironic: 1. None mentioned the location, only the fact that they were in favor of a Dollar General. 2. None of those who spoke have a child or grandchild attending Ottoville Local School. I think its irresponsible to allow a retail store to be located directly across a 50-mph highway from our school; that will attract children of all ages. Our school system has done an excellent job by building a walk bridge from the park to the school to funnel traffic away from the highway. They also bus all students from town in another attempt to protect them from having to walk along or across a highway. I will not someday be held responsible when a child is injured or killed attempting to cross a 50-mph highway to access a Dollar General. Children are our future, and I will not stand by and see them put in harms way by those whose only concern is the bottom line. Tony Langhals Ottoville Village Council

The dictionary defines forgive as to grant pardon from or remission of an offense or debt. Sounds easy enough, right? So why is forgiveness so hard? Why are there feuds lasting years, even among family members? Well, for starters, I think many people dont want to apologize. It means admitting one is wrong. People tend to not like admitting that. In my experience, although not necessary, it helps the cause of the person in question to be forgiven if they have first asked for my forgiveness. And not just asked, but asked in a genuine way. Of course, its not mandatory that someone ask for forgiveness to get it. I just think it might increase the chances. There are plenty of people in my life who have never asked for my forgiveness but I have still forgiven them. Or have I? How do you know when youve forgiven someone? Well, thats another thing about forgivenessnot forgiving someone only hurts you, and not so much the other person in question. Holding onto hate, anger, even hurt can take a toll on someone. Once you let go of these feelings, you instantly feel lighter. I guess thats how I know Ive forgiven someone. When I can think of that person and no longer feel my chest tighten up immediately, no longer feel rage at the mention of his or her name, no longer feel bitter about the relationship or what went wrong. I have forgiven many people over the years who didnt say they were sorry or ask for my forgiveness. And I felt better when I did it. Then there is the hardest person to forgive yourself. While I can forgive exboyfriends or fake friends for hurting me, there are still things Ive done in my life that I havent quite forgiven myself for. I know the healthy thing would be to forgive

To forgive is divine
myself and let go of some of those negative feelings we put on other people when theyve done us wrong. We put those feelings on ourselves when we cant seem to let go of the things weve done that we deem unforgivable. If I want to get spiritual for a moment, I know a higher power would have forgiven us for everything weve done, so why cant we forgive ourselves? I think we can. At least, I think I can. Itll just take a while. But I think it will happen. In the meantime, Ill work on it. If there are people, or you yourself, who need forgiving, try to work on it. Holding onto resentment is only hurting you. Once you forgive, itll feel like a ton of bricks lifted off your chest. Just work on it a little bit, day by day. Eventually, I know youll get there. And if Im wrong, please forgive me.

Little known facts

The Post Office slogan We Deliver has a great deal more in it than just delivering the nations mail. Not that delivering 180 billion pieces of mail is a small task but would you believe we also delivery life? Life comes through the mail by way of tissue donation and even transportation of organs. For decades now, the US Postal Service has tried to make this aspect of life more prevalent in the eyes of the public. The issuance of the Organ and Tissue Donor semi-postal postage stamp and the campaigns promoting its existence have brought this and other important health subjects to the forefront. The same could be said for the Breast Cancer Awareness semi-postal postage stamp. Each of these stamps is sold at a slightly higher rate than regular First Class postage. This added revenue is donated to the charitable organizations that foster these two highly needed aspects of giving life. But did you know that the Postal Service, the National Marrow Donor Program and Be the Match Foundation created the Delivering the Gift of Life campaign 17 years ago. To date, 59,125 postal employees and their families have joined the donor registry. Another aspect of giving life is saving missing and exploited children. Through efforts with the US Postal Inspection service and with major mailers, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children launched the Have you seen me campaign. To date the campaign has returned 152 missing children to their families. This example alone I believe demonstrates the power of the mail; if only one child had been saved, it would have been significant. Is there anything more dear, more precious than the life of a child? Now for some of the lesser-known but strange facts about the USPS: Its quite amazing how things have evolved from the old Post Office Department. For one, there were some very interesting rules postmasters had to follow. You may recall that if you sent a parcel and you also wanted to send the parcel with a letter in or on it, you had to pay separate postage for the letter. At that time, you would be asked what was in the package and if it contained First Class matter. Of course, people objected to both the question and the fact that they had to pay additional postage for the letter. The regulation as it reads today states: Parcel Post mail is not sealed against postal inspection. Regardless of physical closure, the mailing of articles at Parcel Post prices constitutes consent by the mailer to postal inspection of the contents. The rules about First Class matter are a good deal more blurry today but technically, if you are writing a personal letter, you are supposed to pay first class postage for it. (DMM 153.4.2) Well in the early part of the 20th century there was one group that really pinched pennies and even got a little joy out of beating the establishment. I happen to be talking about college students. During this time frame, you didnt have the modern conveniences of washing machines in dormitories and since mail delivery of parcel post was quite swift, it was very common for students to mail their dirty laundry home and get back the clean items in a short time frame. Being cautious about postmasters understanding the true letter of the law, the regulations spelled out exactly what was to be done. It stated that postmasters should be extremely diligent by inspecting packages of dirty laundry for personal letters stuck in amongst the clothes. I assure you I believed in having patrons pay the correct amount of postage but dig through dirty laundry? I think not.

Hunter, Thomas still wrestling at State

By LARRY HEIING DHI Correspondent news@delphosherald.com COLUMBUS The three days of action at the 77th Ohio High School wrestling tournament at the Jerome Schottenstein Center on The Ohio State University campus is a dream come true for wrestling fans. Its a chance to see 3-time defending state champions side-by-side Cinderella stories just happy to make it to state. Fans also have the chance to watch powerhouses like St. Paris Graham, which had a total of 12 grapplers competing against schools with only one. Its also a dream of wrestlers to make it to the third day at the Schottenstein Center during the tournament. That dream continued for two area wrestlers as Elidas Blaine Hunter (Division II) and Zack Thomas of Van Wert (Division III) both won on Friday afternoon. After dropping his opening match against Ana Abdulijelil of Whitehall on Thursday night, Hunter bounced back to defeat Aaron Cox of Hamilton with a major decision 15-3. On Friday, Hunters offensive performance continued as he outlasted Brennan Joseph from Alliance Marlington 8-5 at 113 pounds. That win allowed him to earn a Saturday appearance in the seventh-place match as he later lost 3-1 to Paul Petras of Parma Padua Franciscan. He will tangle with the grappler who put him in the consolation bracket to begin



Elida wrestler Blaine Hunter looks confident as he gets some last-minute advice before a match at the Division III State Wrestling Championships Friday at the Jerome Schottenstein Center at The Ohio State University. (Delphos Herald/Larry Heiing) with, Abdulijelil, around 11:15 a.m. today. Thomas, Van Werts 285-pounder, also lost his opening match Thursday but came back to defeat Conner Carless of Norwalk St. Paul with a pin. On day two, Thomas needed overtime but survived with a 4-2 victory over West Salems Mat Hunter 4-2 in the consolation bracket. That meant he survived to day 3 despite Friday nights 2-1 loss to Ben Sexton of Sugarcreek Garaway. He will now take on Chance Veller in the seventhplace match at approximately 12:30 p.m. today. The dream ended for Wayne Traces George Clemons (Division III) on Friday. With a convincing victory over Kaden Moore 16-0 in the opening round, he got a well-deserved rest until day two. On Friday, he was defeated by state-ranked Sebastian Vidika from Sullivan Black River 10-4. Dropping down into the consolation rounds, Clemons suffered a heartbreaking loss in overtime to Greg Quinn from football powerhouse Shadyside. The sophomore Clemons ends the season with an impressive 47-5 record.

Bulldog boys avoid upset by Roughriders

In a battle of Wilsons Friday at Lima Senior, Elidas Marquevious gets the better of St. Marys Memorials Marquis. (Delphos Herald/Randy Shellenbarger)

LIMA The sectional finals is usually where many an upset occurs in high school basketball, usually because the upsetting team has already had the tournament jitters and the upset team hasnt. St. Marys Memorial was the team that almost sprung the upset Friday night in the Division II Lima Senior Sectional finals before heavily-favored Elida held on for a 49-43 victory. Elida will play the winner of Kenton/Tiffin Columbian at 6:15 p.m. Wednesday at Liberty-Benton High School. It was definitely different from the first time we played them (an Elida win Jan. 10). They started out in a triangle-and-2 and the guys they left unguarded made some early shots, Elida assistant coach Matt Smith (head coach Denny Thompson had already left to scout that game) noted. Tonight, they were much more aggressive in their zone; Marquis Wilson in particular made it hard for us to reverse the ball at the top of the zone. When you look at them on film, especially down the stretch, they were playing as good as any team in the WBL; you definitely dont want to play them in the tournament. I also felt we stood around a little too much. We sometimes get into a false sense of security that Dakota (Mathias) will do it for us and though hes done that in the past, you really cant count on it, especially on floors where youre not used to playing. The Roughriders (11-13) shot very well 16-of-32, including an even better 6-of-10 beyond the arc, for 50 percent. Im happy with the way my kids played tonight. We really improved a lot over the course of the season and especially toward the end, we were playing our best ball, Memorial coach Dan Hegemeier said. The Riders also employed an aggressive 2-3 matchup zone that especially knew where Bulldog senior Mathias (14 counters, 9 boards, 4 dimes) was at all times and held the Dawgs (20-3) to 17-of-42 shooting (5-of-20 from 3) for 40.5 percent. Both teams shot well in a slower-tempo first period Elida 5-of10 and St. Marys 5-of-8. Mathias got loose for a pair of treys but the Purdue-bound player also didnt try to force things offensively. On the other end, senior Marquis Wilson (9 points, 9 assists, 4 thefts) set the table for the Roughriders, especially sophomore Nathan Wilker (12 markers) with five in the canto. When Mathias buried the second triple from the right corner at 1:10, the Orange and Black led 12-11. See BULLDOGS, page 7

Jays outlast Big Green in tournament action

By SEAN LAFONTAINE Times-Bulletin Correspondent sports@timesbulletin.com VAN WERT The Ottoville Big Green and St. Johns Blue Jays faced off Friday night at Van Wert High School in Division IV sectional-final tournament action. In a high-intensity defensive battle, St. Johns out-lasted Ottoville to take the sectional crown, 52-41. St. Johns got out to an early lead 11-8 after the first quarter but Ottoville struck back in the second. Down by five with under four minutes to go in the second quarter, the Big Green sparked a run. Luke Schimmoeller started the run with short jumper and Tyler Roby followed that up with a jumper of his own to cut the lead to one. A pair of Brandt Landin free throws gave Ottoville a 20-19 lead, which they carried into hal time. Head coach Aaron Elwer spoke about his teams first-half struggles. A few things occurred in that first half. We had some foul trouble and thats the first time in a long time we had to deal with that, explained Elwer. We had to try to figure out minutes and try and get through that first half. On top of that, we didnt make many shots. I thought our shot selection was really good, so I cant fault that; the ball just didnt go in. On the flip side, Ottoville head coach Todd Turnwald was pleased with the way his team played early. I thought we got off to a good start. Brandt Landin stepped up and made some big plays early. I thought we attacked the basket pretty well, ran some decent offense and made some plays, Turnwald observed. St. Johns came out aggressive defensively in the second half, which helped them build a 5-point lead after the third quarter, 30-25. With the Blue Jays up two late in the third quarter, St. Johns gave themselves some breathing room. The Jays went on an 8-0 run led by Andy Grothouse, who had six points during the run. The spurt put Delphos up 35-25 early in the fourth quarter but Ottoville fought back. Schimmoeller led the Big Green charge by scoring five of the teams seven points during the run to cut the lead down to 35-32 with over five minutes to play in the game. But St. Johns was too much. The Blue Jays answered by scoring the next five points of the game to extend their lead to 40-32. Ottoville got as close as four but St. Johns hit their free throws late to stay in front and secure a 52-41 victory. Landin and Schimmoeller led the way for Ottoville, combining for 32 of the teams 41 points. Landin led the team with

Knights crush Musketeers in sectional final

By JOHN PARENT Times Bulletin Sports Editor sports@timesbulletin.com VAN WERT Its been a difficult first season for first-year head coach Keith Utendorf and his Fort Jennings Musketeers. After a 3-win regular season, the Musketeers were able to upset Temple Christian in the opening round of sectional play on Tuesday night in Van Wert. All that 48-44 win did for Fort Jennings, however, was earn them a date with the number one team in the state in Division IV, the undefeated Crestview Knights. In a game that was never close, Crestview rolled to a 69-29 win and a sectional championship. An overwhelming favorite coming in, Crestview asserted themselves early on both sides of the ball. Senior Damian Helm knocked away a long in-bounds pass, then knocked down a 3-pointer, getting the pass from classmate Cam Etzler. It was just the beginning for Helm. On the next Fort Jennings possession, Helm came away with another steal, this one he took all the way to the rim himself, drawing contact on the way in and converting a 3-point play. Another steal, this one by Etzler, resulted in another Crestview bucket, and two minutes into the game, the Musketeers were forced to use a timeout. Things didnt get better. The Knights would push their lead out to 13-0 on a putback by Helm and three points from Preston Zaleski before the Musketeers finally broke through a Mark Metzger drive and score with 4:12 to play in the first. By that point in the contest, Crestviews full-court pressure defense had already forced eight turnovers. I thought we had good purpose on the defensive end, noted Crestview head coach Jeremy Best. We wanted to get up and down and force them into some quick-change situations and not let them get comfortable and I thought we came out and set that tone right away. I liked our energy defensively. By the times the opening period came to a close, Helm had converted another 3-point play and the Knights got a pair of 3-pointers from reserve guard Mitchell Rickard. The Knights jumped ahead 19-2 and closed the quarter with a 26-4 advantage on the scoreboard. The Musketeers were held to 2-for-7 shooting in the period with 13 turnovers. Crestview was 9-for-15 overall, including 3-for-7 from long range. The senior Etzler finished the game with seven steals. Steals by Helm and Etzler opened the second quarter, with Helm converting both into layups at the other end. After Connor Wallenhorst scored inside for Fort Jennings, Helms layup made it 32-6, Crestview, with just under six minutes to go in the first half. It was at about that time that both teams started substituting liberally, going deep into their respective benches. (Our depth) is something weve developed through the year, Best added. We know were going to need those guys in crunch time of some games and games that are are little more situational or games that are more half-court oriented because at tournament time, thats going to happen. Were pleased with what those guys did. Back-to-back hoops from Austin Kehres got the Fort Jennings crowd to its feet and, though the game was never close, the Musketeers student sections remained vocal in its support of the team. I appreciate everything, Utendorf said of the support of the Fort Jennings crowd despite the lopsided score. Its not been an easy year for any of us but to have the fans come out and support us like that is important for us going forward. We know that we have a community thats going to support us as we get to where we want to be. A baseline drive by Isaiah Simerman and another three from Rickard gave the Knights a 27-point lead, which grew to as many as 30 before Wallenhorsts 17-footer made it 41-13 at halftime. It was more of the same in the third quarter, as threes by Helm and Rickard, along with six points from Connor Lautzenheiser, made it a 62-24 score after three. In the final period, the game was played between two reserve squads, with Brock Rolston picking up five points for the Knights. Though Crestviews team enjoyed the occasion while cutting down the nets following the game, moments later, the Knights had already begun looking ahead to the districts. We played a lot of guys throughout the game but you never know when youre going to need guys, Best noted. It was good to see us play with a lot of energy. Its just one step in the right direction and well get ready to prepare for our next opponent. For the Musketeers, who finish a 4-20 campaign, Utendorf found value in getting an up-close look at Crestview. Were mostly comprised of underclassmen and I think its a great learning experience for us, Utendorf said. Its a great vision, to look across (the court at Crestview) and see that thats what we want to do, thats who we want to become. Those kids over at Crestview have put in the time, put in the hard work in the summers and in the offseason. Theres a reason why theyre that good, Utendorf added. I think thats a good example for our kids to look to and aspire to going forward. Crestview (23-0) will be back in action on Tuesday night, playing the 6:15 p.m. game at the Elida Fieldhouse. The Knights will collide with Northwest Conference rival Columbus Grove in the district semifinals. The Bulldogs pushed Crestview to overtime before falling at Ray Etzler Gymnasium 55-48 on Feb. 21. Presale tickets are available for the district semifinal game. Tickets coast $6 for adults and $4 for students and are being sold Monday and Tuesday from 7:30 a.m. until 3:20 p.m. each day and Monday evening from 6:30-7:30 p.m. All tickets at the door are $6. Crestview receives a 20 percent share of all presale tickets sold.

Ottoville senior Luke Schimmoeller tries to cut off a baseline move by St. Johns senior Eric Clark during the teams Division IV Sectional tussle Friday night at Van Wert. (Delphos Herald/Tina Eley) 18 and Schimmoeller added 14. Turnwald talked about the difference for his team in the second half. We got down and thats how these guys are; they never pack up, continued Turnwald. Thats how they are raised and coached; they just arent going to give up. We had them on the ropes again just like we did the other night. A couple breaks here and there and it could be a different story. Turnwald went on to talk about his teams effort and defensive performance. I loved how the guys battled. We just needed that third guy to step up and score, he added. I thought for the most part we guarded them very well tonight. They are a good 3-point shooting team and we challenged their threes and did a lot of good things, but it just didnt bounce our way tonight. St. Johns used a balanced scoring attack led by Tyler Conley with 12 points, while Grothouse and Evan Hays added 11 and 10 points, respectively. Elwer spoke about how his teams effort defensively in the second half. Our effort defensively all year has been very good. I guess its what we have come to expect, added Elwer. We turned it up another notch there in the third quarter and that led to some live-play turnovers that led to baskets or us getting to the freethrow line. Give our kids credit in a tough environment against a really well-coached team; we came out and played hard, played well and got the victory. St. Johns battles Miller City at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Elida District.

House GOP discuss health care alternative

WASHINGTON (AP) House Republican leaders took a small step on Friday toward pulling together a viable alternative to President Barack Obamas four-yearold health care law but faced deep divisions over whether the GOP caucus can coalesce around a comprehensive proposal. Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia met privately with Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington state, the vice chairman of the Republican Conference and three Republican committee chairmen Budgets Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Educations John Kline, of Minnesota, and Ways and Means Dave Camp of Michigan to discuss a way forward. The session, which produced no legislation, comes in an election year in which Republicans see the unpopular law as their ticket to political victory in November. Democrats have struggled to defend the Affordable Care Act, especially vulnerable Senate incumbents whose fate could decide majority control. The GOP expects to hold its House majority and sees a legitimate shot at gaining the six seats necessary to seize control of the Senate.


WASHINGTON (AP) The nations regional airlines are having trouble hiring enough pilots, the government says, suggesting one reason may be that they simply dont pay enough. A pool of qualified pilots is available, but its unclear whether they are willing to work for low entry-level wages, the Government Accountability Office said in a report released Friday. One key economic indicator supports the emergence of a shortage, something regional airlines have complained of and point to as a reason for limiting service to some small communities. But two other indicators suggest the opposite is true, GAO said. Also, two studies reviewed by the GAO point to the large number of qualified pilots that exist, but may be working abroad, in the military or in another occupation, as evidence that there is adequate supply, the report said. The U.S. airline industry will need to hire 1,900 to 4,500 new pilots annually over the next 10 years due to an expected surge in retirements of pilots reaching age 65 and increased demand for air travel, the report said. Eleven out of 12 regional airlines failed to meet their hiring targets for entry-level pilots last year, the report said. However, no major airlines were experiencing problems finding pilots. Regional carriers account for about half of all domestic airline flights. One big concern is that communities served only by regional airlines will see their service reduce or eliminated. Five regional airlines told GAO they

are already limiting service because of a pilot shortage. Major airlines generally pay significantly higher salaries than regional carriers and frequently hire pilots from regionals. The average starting salary for first officers, also called co-pilots, at regional airlines is $22,400 a year, according to the Air Line Pilots Association. Earlier this month, Wyoming-based Great Lakes Airlines ended service in a handful of small towns, citing a dearth of qualified pilots. The pilots association says Great Lakes pays newly hired first officers $16,500 a year. Data indicate that a large pool of qualified pilots exists relative to the projected demand, but whether such pilots are willing or available to work at wages being offered is unknown, the report said. And, the size of the pilot pool has remained steady since 2000, the report said. There are currently 66,000 pilots working for U.S. airlines, but there are 109,465 currently active pilots with a first-class medical certificate who are licensed to fly airline passengers, the report said. An additional 100,000plus pilots with commercial licenses might at some point choose to pursue an airline career, the report said The unemployment rate for professional pilots is very low, only 2.7 percent. That would normally indicate a shortage, but that may not be the case, GAO said. Average professional pilot salaries went down 9.5 percent from 2000 to 2012, while the number of pilots employed went up 12 percent. Both trends are inconsistent with a shortage, the report said.

WASHINGTON (AP) Pregnant women, mothers and children who get federal assistance with their grocery bills will now be able to buy more whole-grain foods, yogurt, fish, fruits and vegetables. The changes to the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, known as WIC, will go into place by next year. The Agriculture Department announced the changes Friday as the final part of a process it began in 2007 to overhaul the program and greatly expand the number of healthy foods offered. Changes announced that year and put in place in 2009 eliminated many fruit juices from infant food packages, reduced saturated fats the program covered and made buying fruits and vegetables easier. USDA says that overhaul will now be complete with a few more items included, such as whole grain pastas, yogurt and additional types of canned fish. The rule also newly allows fresh fruits and vegetables for older babies when mothers do not want to feed them jarred baby food. The final rule also allows for an increase in the value of vouchers for fruits and vegetables. USDA reaffirmed its decision not to allow white potatoes in the program, a move that the potato industry has vigorously fought. The Agriculture Department said it will continue to eliminate white potatoes from the list of eligible foods because people already eat enough of them and vouchers arent needed to buy more. The department recognizes that white potatoes can be a healthful part of ones diet, USDA wrote in the rule. However, WIC food packages are carefully designed to address the supplemental nutritional needs of a specific population. The potato industry responded swiftly after the rule was released, saying there is no scientific reason to exclude white potatoes, which are popular, healthy and economical for families who are already struggling to get as many nutrients as possible on a limited budget. The WIC program provides vouchers to mothers and pregnant women who qualify for the program and specifically lists the foods they can buy. The program annually serves around 9 million people, about half of them children. every May and the unity of the pastors every January during the Pulpit Exchange, Lumm said. For decades, the DMA has played a role in the community and as new churches and pastors come to town, the group invites and encourages those who have not joined to collaborate with the association. By participating, new members could bring a part of themselves and add their ideas, support and input to a group who strives to continually be a unifying part of the community. Im part of the DMA because I want to join other pastors and churches as together, we make disciples and reach the lost, Eaton said. It has been a pleasure to work with the Delphos Ministerial Association the past several years, Fish said. The group of pastors meet at 9:30 a.m. the third Thursday of each month during which they plan, pray, designate responsibilities and at times, will have a guest speaker. The association also wants to encourage others in the community, who want to address the pastors during their monthly meetings, to reach out to a member. If you have any questions concerning the DMA, officers of the association may be contacted at the following numbers: Tolhurst, president, 419-692-5737; Brown, vice president, and Howell, treasurer, 419692-0651; and Wannemacher, secretary, 419-695-3566.

Good Samaritan Mission is a ministry to travelers who find themselves in a difficult situation while traveling through our community onto their destination, Tolhurst said. The Good Samaritan fund provides food, fuel and, on occasion, lodging while in our town, depending on the travelers need. Each church collaborates with the Delphos Police Department for the verification of need. The other year-round project consists of the pastors providing a service to people living in the Sarah Jane Living Center and Vancrest Health Care Center and Assisted Living. Every Thursday of the year, one of the members of the association will go to the centers and provide a message and music for those living there. Together the 10 ministers also work to provide a community event nearly each month of the year. Providing a community service to unite people and bring them together is the main goal of each. Their year starts in September with the participation in Canal Days. The association takes part in the parade and also puts together the Old Fashioned Revival Tent meeting, which includes worship, singing, Scripture and a message. In November, the association provides the Community Thanksgiving Feast. This will be the seventh year where the pastors invite the community to come together for a worship

service and holiday feast. Guests bring side dishes and the DMA provides the main meal and drinks. One of the highlights of the year is our Community Christmas program at St. Johns, Khabeb said. This ecumenical service includes a variety of musical selections and Scripture readings. It is a powerful way to enter the Advent season. The beginning of the official new year in January brings with it the Pulpit Exchange, the longest-lasting tradition for the DMA. To celebrate the week of Christian Unity in January, the Delphos Ministerial Association exchanges pulpits and brings unity to the community in churches throughout the city, Fuerstenau said. This year, the group added a pastors retreat to its list of activities in January. It was a time of refreshing and sharing through prayer and worship in song, Wannemacher said. It was a blessing to seek God for the future of the association, our churches and our community. We ended the day by partaking of communion, followed by a delightful meal. In May, the DMA participates in the National Day of Prayer. On the first Thursday of May, throughout our nation, churches unite to pray for the nation, the community, businesses, schools, families and churches, Brown said. At 7:30 a.m. on that day, pastors from the DMA go to schools around the area and lead

the students, who wish to attend, in a time of prayer around the flagpole. The pastors gather at noon at the City Building joined by the public to lead everyone to pray for specific entities, Brown said. This service is open for anyone to participate. The biggest project of the year for the DMA is the Community Lenten Lunches because they run the longest. Depending on when Ash Wednesday falls during the year, the group serves the Community Lenten Lunches during the six weeks of Lent. The lunches and a service are hosted each Thursday during that time at either Trinity United Methodist or St. Peters Lutheran Church. This year, the Community Lenten Lunches begin this Thursday and St. Peters Lutheran Church will host. The lunch will begin with a service from noon-12:30 p.m. and lunch will follow. The DMA asks for a donation of $3.50 or more. Everyone is welcome to attend any of the lunches that will take place at the same time and location on March 13, 20, 27 and April 3 and 10. April 18 will be the Good Friday service, also from noon-1 p.m., but no lunch will be served. With a full plate of activities throughout the year, the ministers have many opportunities to unite the community. I enjoy very much the National Day of Prayer at Franklin Elementary School

The figures in Van Wert County follow the same trend as the statewide numbers. In Van Wert County in 2013, the sheriff issued 373 new and 121 renewed licenses for a total of 494. The previous year saw just 189 new licenses with 29 renewals for 218 total licenses. Those numbers were up from 83 in 2011 and 117 in 2010. As in past years, the trend continued in the surrounding counties. Allen County issued 843 new and 506 renewed licenses for a total of 1,349, up from 657 in 2012. In Paulding County, 180 new and 50 renewals were issued in 2013 for a total of 230 concealed carry licenses. That number is more than double 2012s 114. In Mercer County, 654 new and 212 renewal licenses were issued for a total of 866. In Putnam County, the numbers were 322 new and 61 renewals for a 383 total.

Widespread fears over possible changes to gun laws has helped to raise the number of license applications in Ohio. Reactions across the nation have been similar. In Illinois, the first concealed carry licenses were printed and mailed on Friday. More than 5,000 went out in this early mailing. An online application process begun in January has yielded more than 50,000 applications. The only Ohio statistic that was down in the 2013 report was the number of licenses revoked during the year. In 2012, there were 741 revocations, but last year there were only 286. Licenses are revoked if a person no longer meets the eligibility requirements. Reasons a license may be revoked include being convicted of a disqualifying crime, moving out of state, voluntarily giving up the license, dying, becoming subject to the laws restrictions on the mentally ill or being drug or alcohol dependent.

There were no license revocations reported in Van Wert, Allen, Mercer or Paulding counties. One concealed carry license was revoked in Putnam County. License suspensions were up across Ohio from 1,030 in 2012 to 1,154 last year. Sheriffs may immediately suspend a concealed carry license when notified that the licensee has been arrested or charged with certain offenses or is the subject of a protection order. If found not guilty or if the charges are dismissed, the license may be returned. There were two license suspensions in Van Wert County in 2013, five in Allen County, four in Mercer County and one each in Putnam and Paulding counties. A total of 1,142 applications for concealed carry licenses were denied across Ohio. Four of those were in Van Wert County, nine in Allen County, eight in Mercer County, three in Putnam County and two from Paulding County.

She said financial institutions will never ask for or claim they need a customer to verify personal or account information in an email and they would never claim a customers account may be closed if they fail to confirm personal identification within an email. Go paperless. We encourage folks to do as much as they can digitally, Metzger said. Its important to protect all financial information on computers by using updated antivirus and anti-spyware programs to detect and remove viruses and spyware that steal personal information. She also stressed the importance of people using hardto-guess passwords with a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers as characters for all accounts, whether financial, email or to log onto a computer. Dont take identity for granted, Metzger said adamantly. Be proactive. A $20 cross-cutting shredder for financial documents and any other documentation sought after by thieves will add security. This is a list of items identity thieves seek from the trash: expired credit and debit cards; credit and debit card receipts; unused credit card checks; credit card statements; pre-approved credit card offers and applications; checking and savings account statements, canceled checks; investment and pension account statements; paycheck stubs; wage and earnings statements; phone and utility bills; retail invoices and statements; tax returns and statements; medical bills; insurance policy and claim information; and

expired identification documents (drivers licenses and passports). Some interesting demographic statistics on identity theft: Children are targeted 35 times more often than adults; People with social media profiles Facebook, Twitter etc. are also easy targets due to the personal information they put on their profiles; Seven percent of smartphone owners are impacted since 62 percent of them do not use a password on their home screen and 32 percent save log-in information on their devices; Nearly 3 million of the 12 million people affected by identity theft each year are deceased; College students with clean credit scores are ideal targets; Victims of data breaches are 9.5 times more likely to be a victim of identity theft; Households with incomes of $150,000 or more (7.7 percent) are more likely to be victimized; and Thieves can steal credit and debit card information through a technology called Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), which uses radio waves. The digital pickpocket brushes a device called a skimmer close to someones purse or wallet and steals the information from the cards inside. The information is overlaid onto any card with a magnetic strip and used to make purchases. People can protect themselves by purchasing RFID-blocking devices which are wallets, purses, or other containers that prevent radio frequencies from penetrating and reaching the cards.

One additional regulation written in those early postal manuals dealt with minors who might be receiving questionable material through post office box service. I hope I dont have to spell out what they meant by questionable but note they specifically stated minors. The postmaster was given a directive that if he or she were to discover that minors were indeed receiving this material through the mail, they were required to contact the parents or guardian of the recipient and make them aware of the situation.
