Council approves measure for CRA


BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS Delphos City


Council addressed a light agenda
Monday with three items on first
reading and one on third.
Council approved the formation
of a Community Reinvestment Area
encompassing all of Delphos. The
Ohio Community Reinvestment
Area program is an economic
development tool administered
by municipal and county governments that provides real property
tax exemptions for property owners who renovate existing or construct new buildings. Community

Reinvestment Areas are areas of


land in which property owners can
receive tax incentives for investing
in real property improvements. This
program permits municipalities or
counties to designate areas where
investment has been discouraged as
a CRA to encourage revitalization
of the existing housing stock and
the development of new structures.
City administration has been in
contact with Delphos City Schools
and reported the district is on board
with the creation of the CRA and
any property tax exemption that
would occur through the program.
Safety Service Director Shane
Coleman was appointed Housing
Officer.

A Community Reinvestment
Housing Council will be created and consist of a two members appointed by the mayor, two
members appointed by council
and one member appointed by the
Planning Commission. The majority of members will then appoint
two additional members who are
Delphos residents.
In addition, a Tax Incentive
Review Council will also be established with three representatives
appointed by the Board of County
Commissioners, two representatives of the municipal corporation
appointed by the municipal CEO
with council concurrence, the
county auditor or designee and a

member of each affected board of


education. At least two members
must be Delphos residents. The
Tax Incentive Review Council will
review the compliance of agreements involving the granting of
property exemption annually and
make written recommendations to
council as to continuing, modifying or terminating the agreement
based on the performance of the
agreement.
Council passed on emergency
measure an amendment to a previous ordinance outlining the wages
for intermittent firefighters. Pay is
$10 per hour for intermittent firefighters and $25-35 per EMS run.
Resolutions accepting the citys

tax levy rates and placing a 4.05mill renewal levy on the ballot in
2016 were heard on first reading.
The levy collected $208,000 per
year for the last five years.
The levy renewal will then go
to the county auditor to see how
much it will raise with current
property valuations and then it
come back to council to vote on
placing the levy on the ballot,
City Auditor Tom Jettinghoff said.
Coleman reported to council
work has begun at the wastewater
treatment plant for an upcoming
change of technology and pilot
study.

Board tours sports


complex improvements
BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com

OTTOVILLE A tour of updates to the athletic complex at Ottoville Local Schools highlighted the school
board meeting Monday evening. Board members got to see
first-hand the progress on the softball/baseball press boxes,
the soccer shelters and the new propane pump for the new
propane bus the district purchased over the summer.
A large private donation and funds from the Ottoville Big
Green Athletic Boosters are being used for the approximate
$80,000 in projects.
Ottoville will raise student lunch prices 10 cents to $2.25
and adult lunches 5 cents to $2.45. The hike is due to federal
mandates. Under the mandate, students lunches at schools
with free- and reduced-lunch students must have a weighted
average of $2.70. If not, the district must raise prices 10
cents per year until they reach the average. This is the fourth
year the district has raised elementary prices 10 cents.
Three supplemental contracts were awarded, including:
mentor Kimberly Birt; Vantage bus route driver Joe
Hohlbein; and cheerleading advisor Shanda Martz.
The elementary school will hold a book and supply dropoff from 6-8 p.m. Aug. 24. Parents and students are invited
to tour their respective classrooms and drop off school supplies and books.

COLUMBUS Delphos
has a name for itself at the
Ohio State Fair. Two local
youth showed how it was done,
bringing home trophies, ribbons and plaques.
Troy Elwer and Kylie Fritz
are no stranger to the show ring
when it comes to market hogs.
Each have a history with FFA
and 4-H. Their hard work and
determination was rewarded in
Columbus.
Elwer, a St. Johns High
School sophomore, won
Grand Champion Barrow at
the fair. A barrow is a castrated male hog.
Elwer got his hog at an
online spring sale in April.
When we brought him
home he looked OK, Elwer
said. In late June, early July,
dad and I looked at him said
to ourselves, he might be the

Alice Freda Hallard


March 7, 1919 -Aug. 17, 2015
DELPHOS Alice Freda
Hallard, 96, of Delphos passed
away Monday at Vancrest
Healthcare Center in Delphos.
She was born March 7,
1919, in Van Wert to Burt and
Ethel Waldron, who preceded
her in death.
On Aug. 17, 1935, she
married John R. Hallard, who
preceded her in death on July
12, 1984.
She is survived by a daughter, Pamela (Drew) Shenk of
Houston, Texas; two daughters-in-law, Tammy Hallard
and Deb Stocklin-Hallard
Denison; a son-in-law, Donald
W. Miller; grandchildren, Jon
Wayne (Judy) Miller, Jason
Drew (Tina) Miller, Elizabeth
Anne (Shaun) Shenk-Ward,
Aaron Michael (Jenny)
Hallard and Janelle (Andrew)
Knippen; and she leaves 12
great-grandchildren.
She was also preceded in death by a son, John
Michael Hallard; a daughter,
Nancy Kay Miller; brothers,
Adrian Waldron and Orville
Waldron; sisters, Oval Leiter,
Ilo Webb, Betty Morris and
Ester Dottie Agler; and
great-grandchildren Kaydence
Knippen
and
Andrew
Knippen.
During the 1940s, Freda
and her husband, John, were
founding members of the Big
Twin Rockets Motorcycle
Club. They enjoyed weekend
jaunts and she enjoyed riding
in the side-car. She was a
member of the Delphos First
Presbyterian Church. Freda
was an active volunteer all of
her life. She volunteered and
enjoyed cooking and serving
at the luncheons and dinners
the church provided. For 10
years, Freda was a Girl Scout
troop leader, assistant leader,
day camp business manager, troop committee member
and a council delegate to the
Appleseed Ridge Girl Scouts.
She was also a volunteer at St.
Ritas Medial Center for 14
years.
Freda also worked as a
cook for 20 years at Jefferson
School Cafeteria. Freda loved
to walk and keep active.
She belonged to the Peak in
Delphos and you could always
find her walking the school
track with her friends for a
number of years. She was
the best Mom any kid could
ask for. She was always there
for you and encouraged her
children to be the best they
could be. She dearly loved
her grandchildren and wasnt
shy about telling her kids
how to raise them. She loved
her great-grandchildren and
enjoyed their company when
they were able to visit with
her. She was always feisty
with a wit and a sense of
humor that if no one was paying attention, could go unnoticed. She will be missed by
all!
A celebration of Fredas life
will begin at 11 a.m. Friday at
Weber Funeral Home, 1840
E. Fifth Street, Delphos, the
Reverend Harry Tolhurst officiating. Burial will follow in
Convoy I.O.O.F. Cemetery.
Visitation will be from 6-8
p.m. on Thursday and one hour
prior to the service on Friday at
Weber Funeral Home.
Memorial contributions
may be made to the charity of
your choice.

Local/State

DHI Media Staff Writer

FORT JENNINGS
On the tail of a successful
Fort Fest, the Fort Jennings
Village Council met to discuss issues related to infrastructure and aesthetics.
Mayor Jim Smith informed
council that repairs to the
culvert running under State
Route 190, a critical part of
flood remediation efforts in
the area, were completed on
Friday. Concerns over the
short section of the highway
came to light with the torrential rains that fell earlier this

spring and summer. Efforts to


repair the area were likewise
hampered by rain, but Smith
expressed satisfaction with
the end results.
He did a good job of
getting it done, he did a good
job on the job, Smith said,
referring to Dave Gosser, the
contractor hired to make the
necessary repairs. He made
particular note of the gradual
grade left behind, remarking
that it was a boon to the
village.
Itll make it easier to
maintain now, Smith said,
then commented that all that
remains to complete the project is the States removal of
warning barrels and netting.

FORT JENNINGS Wes Klirs dad couldnt find a job


after graduating from college. It was during the Vietnam War
and most employees told him the possibility of him being
drafted was the reason.
Klir, a Fort Jennings native, was among the guest speakers
during the Military Supportive event Saturday morning in
the old Fort Jennings gym.
Organized by the ESGR (Employer Support of The Guard
and Reserve), an office of the Department of Defense, the
event included local and state employers who came together
to be part of a group signing the Statement of Support to
show their support for those in the military. The event included numerous military speakers along with a former Vietnam
POW who told about the importance of employers supporting
veterans.
Klir said his father did get a job with the federal government, but was drafted shortly after.
But he received a call from the federal government that
said he would have a job when he returned, Klir said.
Captain Guy D. Gruters, a fighter pilot and five year POW
during the Vietnam War, was the main speaker during the
event.
Gruters listed numerous veteran friends who had went on to
found successful businesses after leaving the military.
You have to realize the tremendous value of veterans,
Gruters said to employers. You can count on them. They
are loyal and there isnt a lot of complaining. Its a win-win
situation.
Major General Mark Bartman, with the adjutant generals
department in Ohio, spoke about how the reserves and guards
have changed since they went into existence.
General Bartman said they have changed from being a strategic unit to an operational unit.
Now those in the reserves and guards are gone more often
and for longer periods, especially when they are deployed
overseas, he said. He told the employers that working with
these military is important making it easier for them to do their

service if they dont have to worry about their job.


Commander Meghan Michael with the Navy Operation
Support Center in Toledo, urged employers to demonstrate
their support of employees who are in the reserve and guards
by communicating about schedules and showing their support.
The ESGR has 150 volunteers in Ohio and 5,000 volunteers
in the United States.
A group picture was taken at the end of the ceremony.
This is not a legal binding agreement the employers are
signing, said ESGR military outreach supporter Paul Joseph.
It is more a symbolic gesture of employers showing the support for the military.
The entire Fort Fest was a salute to the military history in
the community. It included the Military Museum housed in the
refurbished Jennings Memorial Hall.
The exhibit seems to grow each year, said Wes Klir, who
oversees the museum and also co-chaired this years Fort Fest.

We are looking at the first
of September for Fibracast
Limited to come in and start
retrofitting for the new technology, Coleman said.
The city has struggled
with current membranes
from OVIVO with fouling and failing and recently
received notice from the Ohio
Environmental Protection
Agency of impending findings and orders if the issues
are not addressed in a timely
manner.
The new membrane technology takes up about a third
of the space and will allow
the plant to move up to full
capacity without installing
any new trains, which hold
the membranes.
Fibracasts
proposal
includes new blowers, new
permeate pumps and a onetrain pilot for a year with the
$600,000 payment of the $1.5
million for the equipment

delayed one year. They will


also provide an on-site staff
member for one year during
the pilot study.
After the pilot study, if
the city decides to utilize
Fibracast, the membranes
will be used in the remaining
three trains with an estimated
cost of $4 million. It will
bring the city up to the recommended 3.83 million gallons a day capacity to prevent
peak wet weather flow/combined sewer overflows that
are limited to four per year
by the EPA.
The new technology is
also more cost-efficient with
a savings of nearly $320,000
a year in energy costs.
Council voted down its
first water/sewer adjustment.
A request for the adjustment of $865.36 for water
and $1,030.08 for sewer for
a South Washington Street
home failed 4-3. Notations
on the adjustment request
indicated the city found a

spike in usage at the property in May and when it was


rechecked in June, usage had
already dropped. A water line
in the bathroom for both the
sink and tub were found and
repaired.
The city has made more
than $27,35 3.90 in adjustments since February.
Coleman
asked
for
Utilities Committee meeting
to discuss policy and monthly
billing.
In other business, council:
Approved a family pool
pass for Community Health
Professionals to auction at
their annual benefit;
Heard updates on the
roofing project at the safety services building on East
Second Street; and
Was informed Coleman

Sports

Trophies arent for all!


When a man is right, hes right, no matter who he is.
I am referring to the recent headlines regarding one James
Harrison, a once and current Pittsburgh Steeler, deciding to
give back what were termed participation trophies given to
his 6- and 8-year-old boys.
Everyone knows I
have had my issues
Jim Metcalfe
with the to put it
mildly hard-hitting linebacker.
I wont go into
that.
Despite
those
feelings, it doesnt
bother me in the least
to give him kudos for
this act.
Basically, his reasoning is that although he is proud of his
two boys for what they do and hope they continue to strive for
their best, he wants them to earn those trophies with something more than just being out there.
I applaud you, sir, for having to guts to take the insults and
bullying that is sure to asccompany this act.
I am sure you have already been called and will be for
the foreseeable future a mean dad, a bad parent, setting a
horrible example for his kids, a bully and those are likely
the only printable ones for a family newspaper!
Here is why I agree.
I am all for kids being out there on the playing fields of
sports.
Its great exercise, its wonderful to learn how to get along
with others and it introduces them hopefully in a positive
way but we have seen extreme exceptions to the rules, like
the Florida and Texas midget football movies that showed
coaches going stark raving bonkers! to those very sports we
want them to play and carry on into the future.
When you throw in that some of these sports are being
introduced at younger and younger ages, it concerns me that
we arent letting them be ordinary kids who want to play with
blocks and Tonka trucks (I ignore video games!).
Im not sure competing at 4 years old is the best thing since
sliced bread. I think weve all seen examples of what that
mentality can do (the aforementioned films involved kids not
that much older).
I would write that when kids first get into a sport, especially at that young of an age, I can see them getting a ribbon
or something, a small token that they might appreciate. After
all, you want to keep them in a sport and hope they eventually
make it more a part of their life as they get older and mature.
However, to give them trophies is another matter, especially
at that young of an age as Harrisons sons.
Let the trophies come as you work hard, get more into it and
accomplish goals.

One of his major tasks is
to help run the Lima Junior

was no simple task.
Still, he has built a steady

summer will continue to pay


off as this season goes along.
Last years crew finished
11-15 over and 6-10 in the
Northwest Conference, good
for fifth place.
That put his 10-year mark
for the Black Attack linksters
at 155-98 overall (105-63
NWC).
So far, veterans like
fourth-year senior Mitchell
Youngpeter (who averaged
43.4 strokes per nine holes in
2014). third-year junior Brian
Wood (52) and sophomore
Collin Davis have led the
way, as expected.
Our guys really enjoy
playing the game; that is one

strength of this unit so far.


They have came together
well as a team so far this
year, another positive factor,
Harmon reflected. They hit
a lot of range balls and even
go out after practice to continue playing. They all are
good students of the game
and desire to improve.
In particular, Mitchell
has higher goals of a tournament run.
The most crucial loss
to graduation was Chance
Campbell, who headed to
Heidelberg to play golf this
fall.
He was a first-team NWC
golfer last year, Harmon

explained.
That means that the other
three newcomers: freshman Drake Mertz, freshman
Alex Gallman and classmate
Logan Core; have to grow up
quickly, which Harmon feels
is already happening.
All three freshman have a
lot of potential. Drake Mertz
and Alex Gallman should
come around pretty quickly as they have played the
game before, he continued.
However, with a young
group overall, experience as
the season goes on will help
the nerves and has already
done so.

Inside Sundays Fantasy FB Preview


Athlon Sports

1. Dont overvalue rookie


wide receivers
Last season was the year
of the rookie wide receiver.
Undrafted Allen Hurns got
the party started with a pair
of Week 1 touchdowns. Mike
Evans, Kelvin Benjamin,
Jordan Matthews, Sammy
Watkins and, of course,
Odell Beckham Jr. accounted
for 20 percent of the top25 fantasy wide receivers.
Hurns, John Brown, Martavis
Bryant and Jarvis Landry finished in the top 50. And that
doesnt even include injured
and/or buried super prospects Brandin Cooks, Allen
Robinson, Donte Moncrief,
Davante Adams and Marqise
Lee, who were fantasy relevant at one point or another.
Although the rookie class is
good once again this year,
its important not to expect
similar production.
A handful of rookie wideouts will make a fantasy
impact this season most
notably Oaklands Amari
Cooper but youre going

to be disappointed if you
build your strategy around
landing the next batch of
superstar rookie wideouts in
the later rounds.
2. Actually, dont overvalue wide receivers, period
Especially after last years
influx of talent, weve never
seen the wide receiver position this saturated. This means
it will be harder than ever
for wide receivers to crack
the top-30 threshold. It also
means the words wow, there
are still a lot of good wide
receivers on the board
and nothing else are going
to come out of your mouth
during nearly every draft. In
many leagues, the likes of
Roddy White, Mike Wallace,
Vincent Jackson, Larry
Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin,
Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell
and Marques Colston
can be had after the top30 wide receivers are off the
board. Most of these veteran
wideouts are nearing the end
of their careers but still figure
to offer WR2-WR4 production. The same can be said
for potential breakout players

also being selected outside


the top 30. Examples include
Allen Robinson, Davante
Adams, Kenny Stills, Brian
Quick, John Brown, Cody
Latimer and Marvin Jones.
There are some very intriguing superstar wide receivers
who will be available in the
first round or two, but eventually youre going to notice
a massive tier with players of
similar value. Running backs
are scary, as is spending an
early pick on a tight end (this
year, only Rob Gronkowski
is worth your consideration);
but at least in 2015, you can
afford to spend on the rare
high-efficiency, heavy-volume backs and still land
major values at wide receiver
later on.
3. Understand the value
of Replacement Level
Despite all the durability concerns, the savvy fantasy owner selected Rob
Gronkowski in the second or
third round of 2014 drafts.

The Herald 7

Lincolnview boys golf team 2015

Musings

(Continued from page 6)

I disagree with those that argue trophies like that encourage


them to want to get better I think it brings about a were all
the same mentality and though every child is special in his or
her own way as a unique child of God, we are all very much
different personalities and temperaments; vive la difference for
the spice of life! and that everyone should get one just for
that old college try, even if they arent the least bit interested.
I dont think it does; it gives them no incentive other than
to go out there.
Think about it: if you give a kid a trophy at 8 years old for
trying, what more are you going to give them at 14? or 16? or
18? Another trophy?
Just for trying?
If we really want them to keep going and get better, its a
good job but theres more there if you want it attitude.
Can you imagine taking that you owe me this mentality
into our everyday, workaday world?
Yeah, it might be cool to get a big bonus and a banquet
every day just for showing up to work for about a day or
two.
It might seem cool but in the long run, it would be a miserable failure and would result in no one trying to move up in
the world and probably a company going belly-up in about a
month or two!
I am not counting the almost-fantasy land of professional
sports but thats a whole different world and one that maybe
proves the point in another way; who doesnt believe that
most pro athletes havent been told all along that they are the
greatest thing in the history of Earth and, well, act accordingly?
On the other hand, I dont want these youngsters to make
sports an all-consuming passion especially that early that
takes all the fun out of it, makes it more like a job, makes them
go the other way and become a demon.
There is a fine line here.
Keep it fun and let the hardware come when you really do
something well.
Otherwise, it seems to me it means nothing.
Clear as mud?

Fantasy

(Continued from page 6)

It was a no-brainer, really. Why? Coupled with the


concept of replacement level
production, Gronkowskis
elite per-game performance
made him an absolute draftday steal. To better understand the concept, lets use
Calvin Johnsons 2014 season. Johnson missed three
games and, as a result, finished 14th among wide
receivers in fantasy points.
His teammate, Golden Tate,
outscored him by four fantasy
points. Does this mean that,
in hindsight, Tate was a better fantasy pick? The answer
is a resounding no. Johnson
scored fewer overall points,
but that doesnt mean you
had to leave his slot in your
starting lineup empty during
the weeks he was out. Add in
the points you can reasonably
expect from a replacement
player likely one stashed
on your bench during those
three weeks and you have
Johnsons true fantasy production. In the case of a wide
receiver, you can reasonably
expect roughly seven points
from a replacement-level
player. Add those 21 points to
Johnsons season total and he
jumps well ahead of
Tate and into the top 10.
This season, the likes
of Johnson, Mark Ingram,
DeMarco Murray, Sam
Bradford, Allen Robinson,
Owen Daniels and Jordan
Cameron are well worth your
attention despite the presence
of an injury red flag.
4. Bad quarterback?
Avoid! Avoid!
Last season, the Cardinals
averaged 2.67 offensive
touchdowns per game during
the six games Carson Palmer
was active. Over a full season, that wouldve ranked
ninth-best in the league. In
Arizonas 10 other regular
season games, the offense
averaged 1.1 touchdowns,
which wouldve been dead
last in the league (overall, the
Jaguars were last at 1.5 per
game). As you can imagine,
there were significant fantasy
implications. Larry Fitzgerald

(16th among wide receivers), John Brown (28th) and


Michael Floyd (45th) were
relevant or on the fantasy
radar when Palmer played.
When he didnt, the overall
results Fitzgerald (77th),
Brown (60th) and Floyd
(28th) werent nearly as
good. And thats only one
example. Emmanuel Sanders,
Brandon LaFell, Terrance
Williams and Coby Fleener
are among the players who
outperformed their ability
due to a favorable situation
in 2014. On the other hand,
the fantasy appeal of Dwayne
Bowe, Andre Johnson, Eric
Decker, Vincent Jackson,
Allen Robinson and Kendall
Wright fell victim to underwhelming quarterback situations.
There will always be star
athletes and/or high-volume
players who can provide fantasy value in terrible offenses,
but its generally going to be
in your best interest to eye
players who will receive a
boost from a good quarterback and avoid those in the
opposite situation.
5. Dont draft a kicker or
defense
That is, of course, unless
you have to. Fantasy football veterans will roll their
eyes at this one, but I continue to meet casual gamers
who simply dont understand
the value of using their last
few picks on upside fliers
with the mindset of streaming at both the kicker and
defense positions. Last season, when you were selecting the Cincinnati defense or
Alex Henery (ouch), savvy
owners were throwing darts
at Odell Beckham Jr., C.J.
Anderson, Martavis Bryant
and Lance Dunbar (hey, they
cant all be winners). At least
one player you draft is bound
to go down with an injury or lose his spot on the
depth chart. Once Week 1
rolls around, simply drop the
least intriguing pair of players
on your roster and pick up the
top available kicker and the
defense with the best weekly
matchup. Following the same
drill throughout the season is
your best shot at maximizing
your lineup.

The Lincolnview boys golf crew for 2015 consists of Joshah Rager, Derek Youtsey, Ryan Moody, Jayden Youtsey, Reece
Farmer, Elliot Lloyd, Braydon Evans, Braydon Thatcher, Jordan Fetzer, Nick Motycka, Skylar Whittaker, Gabe Evans
and head coach Daryl Dowdy. (DHI Media/Heather Marie Photography)

Believe the hype: Top prospects are delivering


Athlons Weekly Turn around the
Bases
Teams across baseball appear to be
valuing their top prospects more than
ever, and at the same time, the prospects
themselves are getting increased coverage across the media.
The 2015 season seems to be the
Year of the Prospect, with nearly every
notable prospect getting called up to
the majors: 26 of the top 50 prospects
according to Baseball America and 11 of
the top 15 have appeared in at least one
game this season.
Although they have only just begun
their careers, some have made big
impacts on playoff contenders. Heres
a quick look at how Baseball Americas
top-50 prospects have performed this
season to date. The numbers listed are
the players rankings before the season.
1. Kris Bryant, Cubs - Bryant is
the frontrunner for NL Rookie of the
Year, leading rookies in WAR (4.1)
and on-base percentage (.362) with big
power. Grade: A
2. Byron Buxton, Twins - Buxton
only lasted 11 games before landing on
the DL with a thumb injury and has since
been optioned back to Triple-A. He was
hitting only .189/.231/.270. Grade: C
3. Addison Russell, Cubs - Russell
has shifted from second base to shortstop, taking over for the struggling
Starlin Castro. Grade: B
4. Carlos Correa, Astros - Correa
has lit the world on re, hitting
.286/.357/.540 with strong defense. He
leads all shortstops in WAR prorated for
a full season. Grade: A+
6. Joey Gallo, Rangers - Gallo has
displayed his massive power but has
also struck out 43.9 percent of the time.
Normally a third baseman, hes played
outeld to keep his bat in the lineup.
Grade: B8. Joc Pederson, Dodgers - Pederson
leads all rookies in home runs (22) and
is second in walk rate (15.8 percent),
which makes up for his .217 batting
average. Grade: A9. Francisco Lindor, Indians - Strong
defense and good on-base skills (.296
batting average and .329 on-base percentage) at 21 are extremely impressive.
Grade: A11. Noah Syndergaard, Mets - Hes
striking out more than a batter an inning,
and his peripheral numbers (3.10 FIP)
match his impressive ERA (3.07).
Grade: A
12. Jorge Soler, Cubs - His power-speed combination hasnt showed at
all, but hes gotten on base at a solid rate
(.270 average and .327 on-base percentage). Grade: C+
13. Miguel Sano, Twins - His bat
is everything it was advertised to be
(.279/.392/.533), but hes played almost
all his games at DH, which hurts his
value. Grade: B+
15. Carlos Rodon, White Sox - He
made his MLB debut 10 months after
being drafted third overall but has struggled to a 4.51 ERA, although he has
9.92 K/9. Grade: C+
17. Blake Swihart, Red Sox - Called
up because Boston had no other catcher
options. Swiharts defense has been ne,
but his bat (.258/.291/.347) has struggled. Grade: C+
18. Daniel Norris, Tigers - Norris was
the centerpiece of the David Price trade

but has struggled with his command,


ending up with a 4.24 ERA. Grade: C+
19. Kyle Schwarber, Cubs - Hes
been so good (.315/.403/.586) that the
Cubs have benched Starlin Castro and
Miguel Montero to keep his bat in the
order. Grade: A21. Rusney Castillo, Red Sox - Hes
spent most of the season in Triple-A,
but since he was recently called up, hes
hitting .339/.373/.518. Grade: B
24. Jon Gray, Rockies - A strict pitch
limit has held Gray to 15 innings over
three starts, although hes been very
effective with a 2.40 ERA and 8.40 K/9.
Grade: B
27. Aaron Sanchez, Blue Jays - His
ERA (3.30) has been good, but his low
strikeout numbers (6.0 K/9) and high
walk rate (4.5 BB/9) are concerning.
Grade: B+
30. Dalton Pompey, Blue Jays
- Pompey was hitting so poorly
(.193/.264/.337) that he was demoted at
the start of May and hasnt been called
up since. Grade: D+
32. Michael Taylor, White Sox Hes been great defensively with nine
runs saved and has 15 steals, but his
bat (.243/.287/.380) is lagging behind.
Grade: B
33. Steven Matz, Mets
Matz made only two starts before
landing on the DL with a torn muscle in
his back, but he was very effective with
a 1.32 ERA. Grade: B
34. Matt Wisler, Braves
Wisler has struggled over 10 starts
with a 4.74 ERA, poor strikeout numbers (5.8 K/9) and a low ground ball rate
(34.4 percent). Grade: C
35. Luis Severino, Yankees
Severino has been solid over three
starts with a 3.18 ERA and an equally
impressive 9.5 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9. Grade:
B
37. Steven Souza, Rays
Souza is third among rookies with
15 home runs despite missing 22 games
due to hand injuries. His .214 batting
average and .303 on-base percentage
arent great. Grade: B39. Aaron Nola, Phillies
His command is as advertised (1.8
BB/9), but his high rate of allowing
home runs (13.3 per y ball) has led to
his bloated 4.25 ERA. Grade: B42. Andrew Heaney, Angels
Heaney has allowed two or fewer
runs in all but one start, and his good
control has helped him to a 2.53 ERA
despite few strikeouts. Grade: A44. Henry Owens, Red Sox
One terrible start out of three ballooned his ERA to 6.19, but he does
have a 9.6 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9. Grade: BAROUND THE HORN
The Red Sox scored 37 runs in two
games against the Mariners, the most
any team has scored in a two-game span
since the Rangers scored 39 runs in a
double-header in August 2007. Red
Sox manager John Farrell was diagnosed
with Stage 1 lymphoma and will take a
medical leave for the rest of the season.
Bench coach Torey Lovullo will manage
the team for the remainder of the season.
Farrell plans to return for spring training. Milwaukee Brewers prospect
David Denson became the rst active
player to reveal that he is gay. Denson,
who plays for the Class A Wisconsin
Timber Rattlers, hit a home run recently
in the Northwest/Pioneer League AllStar game. Texas Delino DeShields

Jr. hit his rst career home run last


Friday in his 303rd career plate appearance. In 2,411 career minor league plate
appearances, he has hit 39 home runs.
Seattles Hisashi Iwakuma threw
his rst career no-hitter against the
Baltimore Orioles in his rst career
complete game. It was the fourth no-hitter of the season, and Iwakuma needed
only 116 pitches, striking out seven and
walking three. Mets third baseman
David Wright began a rehab assignment
at High-A St. Lucie and is expected to
rejoin the Mets soon. He has been out
since April 14 with spinal stenosis.
The Blue Jays winning streak ended at
11 games Friday, which tied their franchise record. Toronto was on the verge
of setting a new record before Aaron
Sanchez allowed a three-run home run
in the eighth inning to Carlos Beltran
in a 43 loss to the Yankees. Bryce
Harper became the rst NL player to
hit 30 home runs Friday on a three-run
blast off Matt Cain. There are already
seven AL players to reach that mark
Nelson Cruz, Mike Trout, Chris Davis,
Josh Donaldson, J.D. Martinez, Mark
Teixeira and Albert Pujols. Matt
Kemp became the rst Padre to hit for
the cycle Friday in the 7,444th game in
franchise history. Kemp hit a two-run
home run in the rst inning and a single in the third inning off starter Yohan
Flande, a double in the seventh off
reliever Rafael Betancourt, and a triple
in the ninth off Justin Miller.

Delphos FFA members attend camp


INFORMATION SUBMITTED

Parents and students outside Franklin Elementary on Tuesday. (DHI Media/Steven Coburn-Griffis)

CARROLL COUNTY Four Delphos


FFA members recently embarked on a journey
to FFA Camp Muskingum. Their trip would
take them to Carroll County, 4 hours from
Delphos, to the home of FFA Camp.
The week-long session was packed full
of leadership, team-building, communication
and recreational activities. The members had
the opportunity to meet and visit with this
years State FFA Officer Team, relax and
enjoy different aspects of camp and most
importantly, create friendships with close to
300 other FFA members from across the state.
During the week, FFA members participated in four team-building and problem-solving-based workshops presented by the state
FFA officers. They participated in various
contests and tournaments to earn points for

their camp chapters. They took advantage of


the opportunity to go swimming, kayaking,
canoeing, and motor-boating on Leesville
Lake. The experience of being surrounded by new people allowed our members to
share activities and experiences that they have
gained with FFA and learn about other activities that they could implement when they
arrive at home.
FFA Camp has been established since
1942, and during the five weeks that the camp
is open to FFA members over 1,000 of them
will attend. The life skills that are gained at
camp come in a different form than those
that are usually presented in the classroom
because of the relaxed camp environment.
The experience has allowed Delphos FFA
members to experience personal growth and
gain skills that are necessary for a successful
future.

Movie Review

Pixels

Directed by Chris Columbus


PG-13
Its not summer at the multiplex unless the world is under
space-alien attack. And this
time, the malevolent E.T.s rain
down destruction in the form
of 80s videogames, gigantic 3-D versions of Pac-Man,
Centipede, Galaga and other
arcade classics from the era
of Madonna, Mr. T and Max
Headroom.
To echo another 80 classic,
who you gonna call?
In the case of Pixels, you
call Adam Sandler and his pals,
a pack of game-arcade whiz
kids back in the day. When the
pixelated peril begins pelting
major global cities, America
sends its best to the front lines:
guys who still remember how
to win with a joystick and a
pocketful of tokens.
How you feel about Pixels
will probably square with how
you feel about Adam Sandler
and his movies in general, from
Big Daddy to Happy Gilmore
and Grown Ups. Even though
hes made the occasional diversion, hes basically stayed
true to his formula, that of an
ever-aging grown-up with the
stunted emotional maturity,
hubba-hubba sense of humor
and giggly gender enlightenment of a 13-year-old.
Sandlers go-to production
and writing team make sure
the project bears his distinctive
stamp, even though the stylistic touch of director Christopher Columbus (Home Alone,
The Goonies and two Harry
Potter movies) seems to have a
bit of comedic leavening effect

"Sizing Things Up"

Space Invaders Adam Sadler and his shtick saves the


planet in Pixels. Also starring Kevin James, Josh Gad and
Michelle Monaghan
on some of his more sophomoric tendencies.
Although Pixels generates
some laughs, they are jumbled, jangled and uneven, and
even Sandler seems tired and
bored of playing basically the
same character hes played in
every movie. Josh Gad, who
voiced Olaf in Frozen, is the
conspiracy-theory crackpot
Ludlow, one of Sandlers arcade buddies obsessed with a
sword-wielding goddess from
an 80s game called Dojo
Quest. Peter Dinklage from
TVs Game of Thrones plays
Eddie, a trash-talking Donkey
Kong champ with a checkered past. And Kevin James
is the president of the United
Statesyes, Paul Blart has
graduated from Mall Cop to
the Oval Office.
One of the bones women often pick with Sandlers movies is that they are unabashedly boys clubs, and Pixels
certainly doesnt do anything
to turn that perception around.
Michelle Monaghan, Maggie
Hart from last falls season of
True Detective, is the ostensible female lead, but shes only
there to trade romantic snips

and quips with Sandler, fall in


love with him and cheer him
on as he saves the world. She
fares far better, even so, than
Jane (30 Rock) Krakowski,
who gets no lines of dialogue
as the First Lady, and whose
big scene is decorating a cake.
The only other female who
gets any appreciable camera
time at all, Ashley Benson,
as the mini-toga-clad videogoddess-come-to-life Lady
Lisa, doesnt even get to open
her mouth allexcept to kiss
Josh Gad.
We never see the space
aliens, who communicate
through scrambled 80s TV
transmissions: Ronald Reagan presidential addresses,
sitcoms, commercials, MTV
spots. At one point, a flummoxed U.S. military official
(Brian Cox) reacts to the news
that Sandler and his team apparently failed to stop the invasion.
You heard Hall and Oates,
he bellows. You blew it!
With this Pixel-ated pileup
of Sandler shtick, I have to
agree.

during both the shutdown
and startup of the facility.
Accordingly, a higher noise
level will be experienced for
a period of time during the
beginning of October when
the site resumes operations.
Increased traffic can also be
expected along Buckeye and
Fort Amanda Roads during
this shutdown.

up the pace. Some people are morning people, while others dread setting their alarms for early morning
hours. Kids who fall into the latter
group may drag their feet in the
morning, but parents should offer encouragement when kids are
moving slowly in the morning.
Allowing your frustration to show
may only make kids less fond of
mornings, so remind them as nicely as possible that everyone has a
schedule to stick to if they seem to
be dragging their feet.
Keep the television off. If
watching the television is ingrained
in your morning routine, try going
a few days without it to see if this
makes it easier to get out the door
on time. Kids might grow distracted by morning cartoons, and even
adults may get caught up in morning news shows or other forecasts.
Eliminating television from your
morning routine can save time and
also may help your family grow
closer, as you will have more distraction-free time to speak to one
another. In addition to turning off
the television, resist the urge to
turn on your devices or scan work
emails when getting ready in the
morning.
Parents know that school day
mornings can be hectic. But there
are several ways to make such
mornings go more smoothly so everyone gets where they need to be
on time.

Strategies to help kids focus


on their schoolwork
ADHD can still have
trouble focusing on
their schoolwork, and
parents of such students
may want to speak to
their childrens teachers
to solve the problem.
Educators have significant experience dealing with students who
have trouble focusing,
and they may be able
to make certain suggestions to help kids focus
on their work.
Minimize distractions at home. Some
kids may do well in
class but find it hard to
focus once they arrive
home. Thats because
home often has far
more distractions than
the classroom. Once
the time comes for
your child to do his or
her homework, minimize distractions that
can compromise his
or her ability to focus.
Turn off the television
and take kids phones
away if they have their
own phones. During
homework time, only
allow them to use their
computers for their lessons and not to connect
with friends via social
media. Parents also
should make sure they
arent the distraction.
Let kids do their work
in peace and quiet, offering to help if need
be, but steering clear of
kids work areas so they
are encouraged to focus
and not strike up conversations with mom
or dad.
Make lists. Some
kids focus better when
they know exactly
what they have to do.
Encourage such youngsters to make lists of
their assignments and
check items off as they
are completed. Checking items off can give
kids a sense of accomplishment, which can
motivate them to stay
focused on their schoolwork going forward.
Encourage breaks.
A breather every so often can help kids avoid
growing tired. Make
sure kids dont take up
another task, such as
playing video games
or watching television,
during their breaks. But
keep in mind that stand-

Make school day mornings easier

Some
youngsters
experience difficulty
when the time comes to
focus on their schoolwork. Such difficulties may be linked to
a variety of factors,
and parents can be
overwhelmed as they
attempt to identify
the root cause of their
youngsters struggles in
the classroom.
According to the
Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, roughly 6.4 million American children
between the ages of
four and 17 have been
diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.
ADHD most often occurs in children, and
these children may
have difficulty with
concentrating, paying
attention, staying organized, and remembering details. But not all
children struggling to
focus on their studies
have ADHD. Parents
who want to help their
kids overcome their issues with regard to focusing can consider a
host of approaches and
strategies.
Speak with a
qualified
healthcare
professional. Because
ADHD is so common,
parents should seek the
opinion of a licensed
healthcare professional to determine if their
child has the disorder.
According to the National Resource Center
on ADHD (www.help4adhd.org), psychiatrists,
pediatricians,
neurologists, psychologists, and certain licensed counselors or
therapists are qualified
to diagnose ADHD.
Determining if a child
has ADHD is a great
first step toward helping that youngster overcome his or her struggles in the classroom.
A qualified healthcare
professional can help
develop a strategy to
improve focus, and that
may include prescribing medication to improve the childs ability
to concentrate.
Speak with your
childs teacher. Students who dont have

Telling The Tri-Countys Story Since 1869

Parents can take several steps to make sure school day mornings go
more smoothly.
School day mornings can be
hectic, as getting kids ready for
school and out the door on time is
not always easy. Working parents
may find school day mornings especially difficult, as their own work

even more rushed. Fortunately, parents can employ several strategies
to free up time in the morning so
everyone starts their days off in a
more relaxing atmosphere.
Wake up earlier. Sleep might
seem like a precious commodity,
but waking up just 10 to 15 minutes earlier can remove some of
the stress from weekday mornings
without costing you a lot of sack
time. Let kids sleep in until their
normal wakeup time, using your
extra 10 or 15 minutes to shower or
enjoy your morning cup of coffee
before the house is abuzz with activity.
Tackle certain chores the night
before. Delaying certain chores until you wake up makes for a hectic
morning, so tackle as many morning chores as possible before you go
to bed for the night. Prepare school
lunches, lay clothes out for yourself
and your children, and make sure
kids have their backpacks packed
and ready to go before they go to
bed. Each of these things may only
take a few minutes, but when left
for the morning, they can add up to
a substantial amount of time.

Did you know?

A lack of regular
exercise can be more
harmful than previously
thought. According to a
study published in The
Lancet in 2012, across
the globe sedentary
lifestyles are now causing as many deaths as
smoking. Data indicates
that a lack of physical
activity is causing 5.3
million deaths per year
and that the problem is
so bad some believe it
should be treated as a
pandemic. Exercise can
reduce rates of obesity,
strengthen bones, help a
person manage stress,

and reduce a persons


risk for cardiovascular
disease and diabetes.

Fair

(Continued from page 1)

Board

For Fritz, a sophomore at UNOH,


her win in her Crossbreed Division
was bittersweet.
Its a big accomplishment to win
at the state fair, Fritz said. It is an
honor and lets you know your hard
work paid off.
While the look of the animal is
important, everyday duties also contribute to the animals showing.
I walked my hog two or three
times a day and then bathed it after
each walk, Fritz said. You also have
to put conditioner on their skin and
spray them with insect repellent to
keep the flies and other bugs off them.
If they have darker skin you want to
take them outside and let them tan a
little. If they have lighter skin, you
have to be careful they dont get a sunburn. Theyre a lot more like people
when you taking of them than some
realize.
Fritz is the daughter of Eric and
Gina Fritz. She is majoring in agribusiness and plans to co-own and Kylie Fritz shows off her blur ribbon and
manage the family business, ACE plaque she earned winning one of three
crossbreed divisions at the Ohio State Fair.
Hardware, with her brother Jeff.

The judges thought so, too. Elwer


said the judge look for certain things
on different classes. In the Barrows,
they look for a square chest, big top
and if the animal is pretty-headed
meaning its head comes to a point, not
being chubby.
Elwers dad is Scott Elwer, Jefferson
Agriscience and Agribusiness instructor. His son is not afraid to tap into that
knowledge.
I think dad is a great influence on
my projects, Elwer said. Agriculture
is a huge part of our lives and he
answers any questions I have and
helps me know what to do with my
animal when.
Elwer still has three years left with
FFA and 4-H and is looking forward to
the Allen County that starts on Friday.
I love the county fair, too, Elwer
said. I get to use more showmanship
which is a lot more hard work. I enjoy
seeing my hard work pay off and earn
some money.
Elwer is also the son of Chrissy
Elwer.

Herald.
Todays joke:
The photographer for a
national magazine was assigned

Fort Fest fills downtown with activity

Fort Fest drew crowds of hundreds to downtown Fort Jennings last weekend. (DHI Media/Steven CoburnGriffis)

to get photos of a great forest fire.


Smoke at the scene was too
thick to get any good shots, so he
frantically called his home office
to hire a plane.
It will be waiting for you at
the airport! he was assured by
his editor.
As soon as he got to the small,
rural airport, sure enough, a
plane was warming up near the
runway.
He jumped in with his equipment and yelled, Lets go! Lets
go!
The pilot swung the plane into
the wind and soon they were in
the air.
Fly over the north side of
the fire, said the photographer,
and make three or four low level
passes.
Why? asked the pilot.
Because Im going to take
pictures! Im a photographer, and
photographers take pictures!
said the photographer with great
exasperation.
After a long pause the pilot
said, You mean youre not the
instructor?
