DELPHOS Delphos residents are under a boil water


advisory until Thursday when test results will be received.
Delphos officials investigated a 12-inch main water
line break near the intersection of South Main Street and
Cleveland Street Monday. Many area residents experienced low water pressure or no water on Monday.
We discovered a leak Sunday night around 11:30,
Safety Service Director Shane Coleman said. Officials
have been on the scene since then.
The water pressure was restored later Monday but residents remain under a boil water advisory until further notice.
Due to the main water line break, the Delphos Swimming Pool was closed Monday.
A potable water drink station has been set up at the
Municipal Building at 608 N. Canal Street since Monday
morning. Residents have to bring their own containers.
At noon on Monday, the leak was repaired. The crews
worked to pressurize the lines on Monday afternoon.
The Delphos swimming pool was reopened Tuesday in
time for National Night Out.
As the water was cloudy and discolored in some homes,
residents were urged to avoid doing laundry on Monday.
However, on Monday night residents were informed they
could shower in the water but the water could not be consumed.
More information can be found on the City of Delphos
Facebook page.

Aging equipment, weather


factors in Auglaize fish kill

DELPHOS While Delphos City Officials worked on fixing the water line leak, they also worked in conjunction with
the Ohio EPA and Ohio Department of Natural Resources to
solve a situation that resulted in the deaths of fish in the Auglaize River and Flat Fork Creek.
According to Delphos Safety Service Director Shane Coleman, a malfunction at the Seventh Street Lift Station caused an
overflow.
Around 11 a.m. on Sunday, the Ohio Department of Natural
Resources notified officials of a fish kill and were on site at the
lift station and both Flat Fork Creek and the Auglaize River.
The overflow resulted in oxygen levels that were too low for
the fish to survive.

DELPHOS Hundreds
of people came out to Stadium Park on Tuesday night to
participate in National Night
Out.
This is the first year Delphos has celebrated the event
and it was a success.
For the first one weve
ever done, it was definitely
better than expected, Delphos Police Chief Mark Slate
said. Maybe next year well
expand it to the rest of the
park to make it bigger.
This years event had
bouncy houses and face paint
for the kids. They were also
able to swim in the pool for
free starting at 8 p.m.
For parents, there was free
food, including hot dogs,
hamburgers, chips and drinks.
Parents were also able to take
pictures of their children
hanging out in ambulances,
firetrucks and police cars.
The firetrucks were a huge hit
among the kids because they
were able to see all of the
instruments and buttons that
make them work.
The heavy rescue truck
was my favorite because
theres a lot of neat stuff on
it, Alex Groch, a young boy
at the event, said.
Additionally, kids were
able to throw baseballs at a
dunk tank and play with a
hose from one of the fire de-

partment vehicles.
There were also door prizes for the kids, along with raffles. For the door prizes, there
were Halloween safety bags
stuffed full with junior police
badge stickers, pens, pencils,
coloring books, bracelets and
identification kits for children. There was also a bag
from Lima Memorial filled
with sunscreen, bandages, lip
balm and jar grippers. All of
the items for the raffles were
donated by local businesses.
To end the event, kids were
able to enter their name in a
drawing for one of two fullystocked backpacks.
Flyers were passed around
reminding participants to
come out to Stadium Park at
noon Saturday for the Aiden
Dotson Memorial Benefit.

Council reviews water and sewer issues


BY GREG SCHERGER
DHI Media Correspondent
news@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS Delphos
City Council met Monday
evening for the first regular
session of August, addressing
a limited legislative agenda
and reviewing water and sewer issues that occurred over
the weekend.
Safety Service Director
Shane Coleman expressed
thanks to all city departments,
indicating involvement of all
through the weekend events,
including an overflow of
wastewater to Flat Fork Creek
on Saturday evening occurring near the East Seventh
Street bridge and a 12 water
main break occurring Sun-

day evening at 11:15 p.m. at


the intersection of Main and
Cleveland streets.
Coleman stated that the
wastewater overflow occurred at a pump station along
Seventh Street; an alarm system designed to notify the city
wastewater treatment facility
of the event did not operate.
As a result, waste overflow
entered the Flat Fork Creek
resulting in a fish kill due to
oxygen depletion. Flat Fork
Creek eventually drains to
the Auglaize River; to alleviate the contaminated water
problem, the ODNR in conjunction with the EPA and
city officials, set up a system
to aerate the water at the Auglaize River bridge along U.S.
Rt. 224. Aeration of the water

School supplies tax free August 5-6

DELPHOS The Ohio Sales Tax Holiday will return on August 5-7.
The holiday allows clothing under $75
for each piece, school supplies $20 or less
and school instructional material $20 or
less to be exempt from the sales and use
tax.
All vendors, both local and chain stores,
in Ohio are required to participate in the
holiday.
John Odenweller, owner of Lion Clothing, says the holiday does not benefit his
company and it is all for the consumers.
Its really a good savings; it can be a
pretty sizeable amount if the parents have
to come in and buy all of the kids school
clothes that day, he said.
Items that do not qualify as clothes
are clothing accessories and equipment
including purses, cosmetics, jewelery,
watches and hair pieces. Protective equip-

munity out to build the relationship between local law


enforcement and area residence.

ment such as ear protectors, hard hats,


helmets, safety belts and tool belts do not
qualify as clothes, either. Sewing equipment and sports and recreational equipment are also not included.
According to the Ohio Government
website, items that are typically sold together cannot be split to lower the price in
order to qualify for the holiday.
School supplies such as binders, book
bags, calculators, composition books,
glue, crayons, scissors, pencils and pens

all qualify for the holiday. The only school


instructional material that applies is reference books, maps and globes, textbooks
and workbooks.
As for the companies, the holiday can
bring in more customers, which in turn,
can occasionally increase sales.
Last year, I think we sold about $10,000
that weekend and we had more than usual traffic those days, Odenweller said.
However, we might have had that just
because people had to buy school clothes,
not because of the holiday.
According to the Ohio Council of Retail
Merchants, back-to-school sales in the
United States are expected to grow 9 percent, from $68 billion last year to $75.8
billion this year. As a result, the sales tax
holiday could help boost sales in Ohio.
Last year, the holiday saved Ohioians
$3.3 million in taxes over the weekend.
To take advantage of the holiday, head to
the local stores, including Lion Clothing
and the Thrift Shop, on Friday, Saturday
and Sunday.

is designed to introduce additional oxygen to the water


to correct the oxygen level.
Aeration of the water is anticipated to be completed as of
Tuesday. Coleman indicated
that although the event was
accidental in nature, it is anticipated that the city will see
some penalty from ODNR
and/or EPA regarding the issue; Coleman also noted that
action is being taken to correct the alarm malfunction
to eliminate a future similar
possibly.
Regarding the water main
break, initial crews were on
the scene within an hour of
discovery, along with additional contracted assistance to
reach the source of the large
leak. Due to inability to install
a replacement valve under the

flow conditions, it was determined at 3 a.m. Monday that


the city water system effectively needed to be shut down
and allowed to drain out so
that repairs could be made.
That action led to the need
for the water boil advisory,
which is anticipated to be
lifted Thursday, provided that
water sampling is deemed to
be acceptable. The leak was
repaired about 12 hours after
the occurrence; the limitation to water usage was also
eliminated Monday afternoon
as the system returned to full
pressure. The city provided
free potable water to residents
from a tanker truck located on
Canal Street west of the city
building during the event.
Coleman indicated that the
water break was related to old
infrastructure and noted the
need to take a look at some
long-term planning to secure
additional valves for the city
to utilize should future similar leaks occur, citing that the
required valves are costly,
several thousand dollars
per valve.

CORRECTION

In a story about Otttoville Village Council on July 27 in


which Delphos Herald correspondent Kay Louth wrote that the
mayor and council had questions regarding a bill for stone submitted by Miller Contracting of Ottoville, the bill in question
regarded the village being charged for 652 tons of stone when it
was thought only 430 tons were required. Council had received
two estimates for the stone. Somewhere along the line, there was
a miscommunication and the village actually required 652 tons
of stone.
Miller Contracting had nothing to do with estimating the
amount of stone needed or purchasing the stone; they only
hauled the stone for the village. The actual bill came from the
stone quarry that provided the stone.
Ottoville Village Administration is pleased with the work
done by Miller Contracting.
The Herald apologizes for any confusion this error caused.

A pump kicked out at
the lift station and the alarm
that was supposed to warn
workers of the situation did
not go off, Coleman said.
Superintendent of the
Wastewater plant Todd
Teman said they were working to solve the issue with
the fish.
We worked through
last night and will continue through tonight to fix
it, Teman said on Monday.
Essentially, weve been
sucking out the water and
pumping it back in to in-

crease the amount of oxygen


to improve the environment
for the fish.
Coleman says the city
has been working with both
the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Ohio
EPA since they were notified.
The EPA suggested we
go through with aerating
the water and we have been
doing that since yesterday,
Coleman said.
Teman attributed the
problem to both aging infrastructure and the weather.

attendees personal finances.
In the class, theyll get general info on credit and budgeting,

Making financial literacy fun


BY NATHANIEL SILLIN

Animate it: Educational favorite


Schoolhouse Rock! makes finance fun with
songs about interest, savings accounts, paying bills, and more. Dynamic animation and
catchy songs help children learn basic financial facts while having fun. Search for clips
on YouTube or pop in a DVD to teach your
children these important and practical lessons
in a fun and memorable way.
Play the market: The Stock Market Game
is an online simulation of the global capital markets that engages students grades
4-12 in the world of economics, investing
and personal finance, and has
prepared 15 million students
for financially independent
futures. The game is part of
a program provided by the
SIFMA Foundation.
Make it comical: Visa
recently teamed up with
Marvel Custom Solutions
to create a Guardians of the
Galaxy comic that promotes
saving and smart spending
and introduces young children to the difference between
wants and needs. The comic,
Rockets Powerful Plan,
features an exciting storyline where saving
money in an emergency fund is crucial to
helping the Super Heroes. If your children are
fans of Rocket, Groot and Ant-Man, theyre
bound to love this comic featuring the same
iconic characters.
Bring it to life: Jump$tart Clearinghouse
offers a variety of games and resources that
demonstrate how money skills transfer to
real life. Children are challenged to plan their
budgets, stretch their money, and be financially responsible. The website also provides
a range of educational materials for both parents and teachers.
Additional edutainment resources include:
MyMoney.gov Youth Resources
TreasuryDirect Kids MoneyMemory and
Perrys Pennies
The United States Mint H.I.P. Pocket
Exchange games
Visas Financial Football and Financial
Soccer
Bottom line: Its important to teach your
children about finance, and edutainment is
both an effective and engaging way to do so.
Use these summer months to teach your children important basic personal finance skills
that they can use for the rest of their lives.
Nathaniel Sillin directs Visas financial
education programs. To follow Practical

What important lessons will you teach


your child this summer? Riding a bike?
Sharing with others? How about teaching
them important financial skills.
Financial literacy may not immediately
come to mind when parents think of essential
skills for students, but what children know
about money at a young age can shape the
way they manage money in adulthood. In
fact, a 2015 study by the Financial Industry
Regulatory Authority (FINRA) found that
credit scores among young
adults improved in states with
mandatory financial education.
However, not all states
implement financial education. So how do we close the
gap between what American
students currently know about
money and what they need to
know?
Edutainment one of the
key personal finance instruction tactics that Visa uses to
reach people of all ages is an
innovative learning method
that strikes a balance between education and
entertainment. Students can learn financial
lessons without feeling like theyre studying,
and edutainment can help them retain the
information better. According to a 2013 study
commissioned by the Bill & Melinda Gates
Foundation, students who played educational
games in addition to the standard curriculum
performed better on tests than students who
didnt.
Here are a few simple ways your child can
learn about money this summer.
Learn together: Mymoney.gov offers activities and lessons for all ages, ranging from
fun cartoons about American coins to guides
on how to budget effectively. The website
features World of Cents, a child-friendly
game for ages 5 and up designed to help teach
the value of money through the concepts of
earning, saving and spending money, while
incorporating basic math concepts.
Begin with the basics: Knowing the value
of money is essential to financial literacy. The
sooner children learn how much everyday
items are worth, the better. Visas Practical
Money Skills initiative has developed a game,
Peter Pigs Money Counter, which helps children improve basic financial skills such as
sorting and counting coins to learn their monetary value. The free game is available online,
as an Android app and from Visas Practical
Money Skills website.

Jay golfers ready for 16 Hoping against hope ...


but you still have to hope!
BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS John
Klausing has been coaching
the St. Johns golf team for
six years, compiling a mark
of 28-30, including last seasons 7-2 Midwest Athletic
Conference record.
With seven returning starters back and the loss of a
single letterwinner, Klausing
anticipates a solid 2016.
The top returnee is senior
Derek Klausing, a District
golfer in 2014.
Also back are senior Austin
Lucas, senior Ryan Dickman,
senior Elliott Courtney, junior
Robbie Buescher, sophomore
Adam Gerker and classmate
Grant Csukker.
We are an experienced
team this year with four
seniors. We are returning
all of our starters except
Brandon Slate, lost to graduation, Coach Klausing noted.
We should be more competitive than last year. We are
going to reach for contention
in the MAC and advancing
to the districts/regionals this
year. Last year, we finished
5th out of 14 teams in the
sectionals. With all of our
starters returning and only
falling five strokes last year
from the districts, we should
give it a great run.
Our goal is to have three
of our players finish first
team in the MAC and one on

the second team. We have to


work on the short game and
course management where 60
percent of our strokes are
made.
Coach Klausing has some
newcomers to look to in
junior Matt Dickrede, junior
Mitchell Kahny and freshman
Jared Lucas, with sophomore
Emma Shafer and sophomore
Cassidy Shafer planning on
participating in the MAC
girls meet and the sectionals.
They are a group of
young men and ladies that
have played on their own
during the summer; they have
put a tremendous amount of
time in this year already. The
seniors have shown great
leadership by example by
being out there at the course,
Coach Klausing added. We
as a team have to learn from
our experiences last year and
improve as much as we did
in 2015 season. In 2015, our
team score improved over 15
strokes from the beginning
of the season to the end. If
we achieve this in 2016, we
will have a very competitive
season.
The secret to a successful team is depth in the roster. With the experience we
have coming back this year,
a lot of good scores in the
past will not be used because
they will be the 5th or 6th
score. League aspirations are
to finish in the top 3 in the
MAC. The teams this year
to look out for are St. Henry,

Versailles, Parkway and Fort


Recovery.

match

I was hoping!
I was hoping the the Cincinnati Reds
would end up not trading Jay Bruce this year
and keep him at least for another year.
Hes having a pretty good year and is entering his prime.
The Reds have been playing pretty well
post-All-Star break and perhaps giving their
fans some hope that the wait for contention
wont be as long as the powers-that-be suggest.
I knew it was a hope against hope but, hey,
you gotta hope!
Still, when it finally happened, I was hoping they would get more than they did for the
All-Star.
Two players?
Supposedly the every-day player they got
in the trade, second baseman Dilson Herrera,
is considered one of the brightest young
stars in the game today according to that
purveyor of baseball wisdom, Reds General
Manager Walt Jockety as well as another
good, young arm in lefty Max Wotell.
Well, the times that Herrera has played at
the major-league level albeit it is limited,
a total of 49 games and 169 plate appearances
hasnt been so bright, though he was rated
the number 46 prospect in the majors a year
ago, according to reports.
Reportedly, he is a legit 5-tool player but
he is going to his third club in four seasons.
Wotell is in the rookie leagues.
Herrera is 22 and Wotell is 19, so I guess
we have to be patient theres that word
AGAIN to see if this was nothing but
another salary dump.
You hope that these ratings and Jocketys
comments are not just so much fluff but are
truthful assessments but unfortunately, we
wont know for a couple of seasons at least.
Unless Brandon Phillips decides to accept
a trade, he is entrenched at second and I cannot see him getting passed over.
Could Herrera play short? Zach Cozart is
manning that position right now but facing
free agency after the 2017 season, he likely
wont be around in 2018.

Jim Metcalfe

Metcalfes
Musings
Could he play third? Eugenio Suarez is a
shortstop by trade but has improved at third;
its a possible move but thats a big adjustment for a middle infielder like Wilson.
Forget first: Joey Votto makes too much
moolah to be passed over.
Maybe things will work out and the Reds
can be legit contenders again in 2018 at
the earliest.
I think to believe they will contend next
year is hopeful.
The thing is, a few years ago, I was hoping
that they could keep a core to build around
Bruce, Phillips, Votto with all the money
being pumped into baseball but the TV networks (they will never be able to spend like
the Yankees, Dodgers, Angels, Red Sox, etc.,
but be able to afford more than the Athletics
and Twins) and add pieces through the farm
system and judicious free agents but now its
Joey, Brandon, likely Billy Hamilton (is he
finally figuring it out at the plate because he
is dynamite on the bases and in center?) and
we shall see next year.
Will it be Cozart? Adam DuVall? Or will
it be a young pup they bring up that will
surprise?
Could that be the newest call-up, Scott
Schebler?
After all, he started out the year hitting the
cover off the ball but cooled down so much
they dropped him down to Triple A to get
things going in the right direction.
After all, you can have the greatest pitching and defense but you still have to score
some runs, no matter what all the sabermetrics
and other stats governing the modern game
might tell us.

A flashback to a few known and unknown
Bubblegum artists:
Green Tambourine by The Lemon Pipers,
#1 1967
I Think Were Alone Now by Tommy
James and The Shondells, #4 1967
Yummy Yummy Yummy by Ohio Express, #4 1968
Sugar, Sugar by The
Archies, #1 1969
Dizzy by Tommy Roe,
#1 1969
Critics of music, at times,
belittle the lack of depth
from these bubblegum
songs. Gives us something
to chew on. The bigger question may be, does it matter?
Consider the lyrics from the
song I Think Were Alone
Now:
I think were alone now,
there doesnt seem to be
anyone around,
I think were alone now, the beating of our
hearts is the only sound
The long sustained airplay of groups like
Tommy James and The Shondells serve as
reminder that sometimes, simple music is just
as good.
Hearing these bubblegum songs today can
have the same stop and listen power they had
in our teens. Guessing you enjoy a long list of
songs that do the same. Good Vibrations.

eyes fixed with great anticipation at the black
and white TV screen (for what seemed like
days). My memory of the summer night Neil
Armstrong stepped foot on the moon, July
20, 1969. Baby-boomers recall the event as a
mile-marker, an Ill never forget time in the
journey.
Music, for many, also
serves as mile-marker in the
journey of our lives. You can
sometimes here a song from
long ago and associate it to
an important person, event,
or time in your life. Many
boomers will make the case
that the music of the 60s
into the 70s was simply
some of the best. Among
this wealth of sound, you
can find songs labeled as
bubblegum music.
So what is bubblegum
music?
(freedictionary.com) Bubblegum pop music: Optimistic, lightweight,
pop music of the late 1960s and early 1970s
often written by professional songwriters working for music publishing houses and performed
by session musicians. The second definitional
verse is nearly the same as the first.
(Wikipedia) Bubblegum pop is a genre of
pop music with an upbeat sound contrived and
marketed to appeal to pre-teens and teenagers,
that may be produced in an assembly-line
process, driven by producers and often using
unknown singers. Bubblegums classic period

Delphos Canal Museum hosts Voices of History


BY KRISTI FISH
DHI Media Staff Writer
news@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS The Canal Museum hosted


its second Voices of History Roundtable with
three World War II veterans on Sunday.
More than 40 people attended the event
to listen to the stories told by Keith Bastain,
Ralph Hoehn and Earl Morris.
The veterans told stories that produced both
laughter and gasps from the crowd.
Bastain rode with his father to the recruiting
station a few weeks prior to his 18th birthday.
He didnt want to get drafted but he did know
he wanted to join the military like his father.
He served in the Navy from November 1943
to April 1946.
That was the best decision I ever made,
he said.
Hoehn enlisted in October 1942. Hoehn
eventually was trained as an Aviation Cadet.
He served in the Air Force until October 1945,
flying in 35 bombing missions during his service
Morris recalled attempting to enlist in the
Marines during his junior year of high school
with his brother and some friends. The group
was turned away and told to finish their education before coming back, so they did.
All three men can easily remember when
they heard about the bombing of Pearl Harbor but they didnt know what significance the
event would hold later in their lives.
I was driving a Buick across the desert
to California when I heard it on the radio,
Hoehn said.
Hoehn remembers how scared everyone
was when he arrived in California but he said
the event didnt hold as much significance at
the time.
I remember standing in the living room
when the news came on the radio, Bastain
said.
We were preparing to go to church when I
heard it on the radio, Morris said.
All three were able to easily recall the day
they left their homes to fight in the war.
My Mom and Dad took me to Columbus
and it was tough saying goodbye, Hoehn
said. A bunch of us then took a bus to our

next place in San Antonio.


As for Bastain, he left only 10 days after
his 18th birthday. He took a bus to Toledo and
then headed for a 16-week torpedo camp at
Great Lakes near Chicago.
That was the beginning of an awful great
adventure, Bastain said.
Morris went to Great Lakes near Chicago
by trains when he left his home. When he arrived, he learned quickly not to volunteer for
things.
My friend and I volunteered to drive truck
because it sounded easy but they knew we
were good at typing, he said. So they picked
us up to go drive trucks and they took us to the
second floor of the building and sat us in front
of typewriters. So we were sitting up there filling out all these insurance forms.
Some of the memories the men spoke of
brought laughter to the crowd.
Morris remembered standing in line at the
base in Toledo to see if he would be in the
Army or the Navy. Ahead of him, he saw
men say they wanted to be in the Navy and
their papers would get stamped with Army. So
Morris and his brother chose to try and trick
the system. Both he and his brother said they
wanted to be in the Army and they watched in
satisfaction as their papers were stamped with
Navy, just the way they had intended.
He also remembers a time when they had
nothing to eat but Jello.
There was an accident on the ship and for
about two weeks the only thing we could eat
was Jello, he said.
Hoehn recalled how the men looked when
they had their guns on them.
We looked pretty wicked with our guns
strapped on, he said. But they took away our
guns because it was better to be captured. If
we had on guns, we would be shot, but if we
didnt then we might just be captured.
Morris remembered the take-offs and landings that happened on the 495-foot ship. He recalled a moment when one of the men jumped
off his plane before it rolled into the ocean and
how dangerous these landings could be if the
men made one mistake.
Morris also remembered a time when a mechanic had to be rescued from the water.
He was doing maintenance when he

climbed back up the ladder on the side of the


ship, he said. The boat rolled away and he
missed the ladder so he fell off backwards into
the water. The mechanic didnt know how to
swim, so he was stuck floating on his back for
nearly half an hour.
Hoehn recalled some of his many bombing
missions that didnt go exactly as planned.
One time his radio compass was no longer
working and there were clouds filling the area
around him. A man from his first mission had
to lead Hoehn through the clouds back to the
landing strip.
On nearly every mission I had a hole in my
plane, some had 10 and some even had 50,
he said.
Morris remembered a strenuous 12 hours
on his ship when the sonar picked something
up around 4 p.m. and at 5 p.m. the crew quickly assumed positions at their guns because the
object could not be identified. He remembered
seeing nothing across the ocean even though
it was flat like glass without a ripple in sight.
Hours went by and we were strapped 9
into
th
our guns and at 5 a.m. it disappeared, Morris said. It was actually the wake of our ship
that the sonar was catching, about 400 yards

behind us.
After many years of service, the men returned home to their families.
It was wonderful to go home; we settled
down and went back to our normal routine,
Hoehn said.
After traveling from San Diego to the Panama Canal and then to Charleston, Bastain
headed home. However, when he took the
train to Philadelphia it was storming.
My wifes dad wouldnt let her come pick
me up because it was storming, he said.
Bastain did make it home that evening,
which happened to be Christmas Eve, to see
his wife.
As for Morris, his ship came into California
where he spent five days celebrating with his
wife before returning home to Michigan.
Although it was difficult to find work and
difficult for many to transition back to the way
life had been before, the veterans do not regret
their time spent in the service.
It was a wonderful adventure, but I dont
want to do it again, Bastain said.

COUNCIL

(Continued from page 1)

In legislative action, council


approved application to sign
on to a memorandum of understanding, an effort in Allen
County to potentially secure
grant funds to address dilapidated, vacant properties that
are delinquent on tax payment,
for the demolition of the same,
on a case-by-case basis. All
members of council voted to
approve.
Council also approved on
first reading passage of resolu-

tion #2016-6, authorizing the


mayor and/or safety service
director to apply for, accept and
enter into agreement on behalf
of the city for planning, design
and/or construction of wastewater facilities. Passage of the resolution permits the city to apply
to the Water Pollution Control
Loan Fund (WPCLF) to potentially secure funds to be used
for the design and construction
of replacement screens at the
wastewater treatment plant. In

Despite being strongly associated with the country, St. Patrick was not actually born
in Ireland. He was born in Britain but was taken prisoner at the age of 16 by a group of
Irish raiders, who invaded his familys estate. They took him back to Ireland, where he
was held hostage for six years before he escaped and fled back home. He later was called
by God to join the Catholic Church and he eventually returned to Ireland as the churchs
second missionary there.
