Teaching peace
through PAX

FORT JENNINGS
Theres something different
about the elementary school
in Fort Jennings. Not that it
was ever a hotbed of misbehavior, a primary for hooliganism, but it is, these days,
quieter and more orderly
than usual.
In the hallways, most students are on their best behavior. In many classrooms,
there is peace; deliberate and
voluntary. Or, more appropriately, there is PAX, the
Latin for peace. Its all a

part of and resulting from


an increasingly recognized
behavior modification exercise embraced by teachers
and popular with the kids:
the PAX Good Behavior
Game.
Simply put, PAX is an
interesting mix of psychology and silliness that challenges students from preschool through sixth grade
to perform at a socially
advanced level as individuals, in teams and as an entire
class. Implementing a simple rewards-based system,
PAX encourages students to

City schools to get new software


BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS Delphos City Schools will
be on the list for upgrades to software used
to run the school district and report to the
state following the approval of the Munis
Implementation Software Project Monday
evening.
Treasurer Brad Rostorfer said the software would make his job more efficient as
well as streamline reporting by teachers and
other staff members.
This is a real step forward in the software we need to operate, Rostorfer said.
The cost is $40,000 with $20,000 needed
when the district commits in October. Once
implemented, the remaining $20,000 will be
due with an additional $7,280 yearly maintenance fee.
Even with applying in October, we will

be part of the third or fourth wave for this


implementation meaning the earliest we
could see this new software January 2018
with a six-month implementation period,
Rostorfer added.
Tyler Technologies is offering the
upgrade.
Superintendent Kevin Wolfe gave an
update on middle school restroom project.
The floor has been excavated for plumbing, which is nearly completed and on Sept.
11, the floor was poured, Wolfe said. they
still need to tap into the sewer system. We
are still ahead of the completion date of
Nov. 16.
Wolfe also reported the basement at
Landeck Elementary flooded twice last
week during the heavy rains.
The second time was worse than the first
and its all cleaned up now, Wolfe said.

FORT JENNINGS
Dealing with village streets
and highways, in one form
or another, dominated discussions at the Fort Jennings
Village council meeting
Tuesday evening.
Mayor Jim Smith updated council on grant funding the village has received
from the Ohio Public Works
Commission and proposed
applying for new monies.
He commented that upcoming work in the village could
inconvenience the local ele-

vator, but that every effort


would be made to keep such
an inconvenience to a minimum.
There might be a little
friction between the elevator
and getting this done, he
said. But well do what we
can. Id hate to see trucks
driving on fresh pour, but
its probably going to happen.
He also suggested and
council approved moving
forward with a new grant
proposal to the OPWC,
though who will prepare
the grant remains up in
the air.
Smith proposed applying
for funds to help complete

an estimated $66,000 repair


to First Street. At present,
the engineering firm of
Poggemeier Design Group
is on deck to prepare the
nearly $33,000 grant at a fee
of $5,000. Smith told council that he has approached
Bockrath and Associates and
requested an estimate from
them for the same service,
but that the clock is ticking and the village needs
an answer sooner rather than
later.
Ill give (Greg Bockrath)
until Friday, then well
just move forward with
Poggemeier, Smith said.

HwO issues strategic plan Trustees address light agenda


for Ohios water resources INFORMATION
out the township.
SUBMITTED
Fiscal Officer Kimmet
INFORMATION SUBMITTED

COLUMBUS An unprecedented coalition of Ohio


water stakeholders has issued its strategic plan for maintaining and strengthening the states water resources. The
Healthy Water Ohio (HwO) coalitions recommendations
aim to preserve Ohios valuable water assets for those who
rely on them for consumption, recreation, food production
and commerce.
The HwO plan identifies specific needs in the areas of
policy, research, infrastructure and education. It also proposes the creation of a public-private Ohio Water Trust,
funded at $250 million annually to help enact the plans
recommendations. A portion of the trust funding would be
accrued through the sale of state bonds. The full report is
available at HealthyWaterOhio.org.
The Healthy Water Ohio coalition received input from
more than 200 individuals and organizations with diversified interests in Ohio water. Its 16-member steering committee represents conservation, business, universities, water
suppliers, agriculture, human health and others. Over its
21 month effort, the coalition hosted dozens of fact finding
events and discussion meetings, heard from subject matter
experts, engaged with government leaders and collected
public input via a statewide survey of more than 1,000 Ohio
citizens.
The reports policy plan emphasizes the value of Ohios
existing watershed districts and recommends voluntary
water quality and quantity management practices, encourages incentives and collaboration, calls for equitable and
reasonable regulations and advocates for improved coordination among government agencies.
The HwO plans research proposals include identifying
knowledge gaps, establishing a formal Ohio water research
group and improving coordination of research data.
The coalition agreed that significant financial resources
will be needed to sustainably meet current and future water
needs and enhance the states economy and quality of life.
The proposed Ohio Water Trust would be governed by a
diverse stakeholder board, which will identify and support
projects that will improve water quality, reduce stormwater
and other flooding, enhance agricultural nutrient management, reduce drainage maintenance and dredging costs, assist
voluntary regulatory compliance and enhance habitat and
recreational use while meeting other societal values. The projected $250 million in annual funding could come from water
quality trades, agriculture and business funding, government
bond sales, water user fees, a portion of boating and fishing
license fees, philanthropic contributions and other sources.
With its strategic plan released, the Healthy Water Ohio
coalition now intends to prioritize and pursue its recommendations. The group estimates many parts of the plan
will take decades to accomplish while others can begin
immediately.

Trouble in New Cats drop match to Bluffton


England! Again?
What is going on in New England?
Does it seem that accusations of cheating are always emanating toward Foxborough?
I am referring to the latest: a snafu regarding coach-to-coach
headsets in the Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots season-opener Thursday
in Foxborough.
Jim Metcalfe
Steelers
head
coach Mike Tomlin
charged that failures
during the game are
what always happens
there but the team
apparently isnt going
to file a formal complaint.
Nor did the NFL
accuse the Patriots of doing anything wrong, basically putting
the blame on a power problem at the game that apparently was
addressed positively.
With all the money the league makes these days and the
increasing sophistication of the technology, why arent these
things more reliable with so much riding on the line?
I dont get why mess-ups like this apparently the
Steelers coaches had to listen to the Patriots radio broadcast
the first half are happening with the oodles of cash being
raked in by teams and the league that should make it relatively
easy to address.
Other coaches have weight in on this matter and it has nothing to do with Bill Belichick!!!
Maybe the Patriots are innocent bystanders in this but it
just makes you wonder, though, with all of the issues that have
been involving the Patriots over the last decade or so that leave
you scratching your head.
Listen: I really dont hate the Patriots. I have always had a
soft spot in my heart for that team and guys like Sugar Bear
Hamilton (a noseguard in the 1970s and 80s) and Tim Haynes
and John Hannah I know I am showing my age but .
I may not be a fan of Belichick but he has kept this team
atop the league for years in a free-agency period that makes
that almost impossible.
Could it be that this has been going on throughout the
league over the years but because of increased scrutiny these
days we all have cameras on our cell phones and social
media has exploded incredibly over the years it has become
more of a major problem?
Does the NFL need to get ahead of the game so to speak
and act instead of seeming to react to every issue too late?
I know many an owner read this column faithfully (ahem!!!)
and my advice is, you bet!
The NFL is too good of a product to not do so!
=========
This item came to my attention while surfing the net.
It seems that the fans of Serena Williams cannot stomach
the fact that she got beat in the US Open semifinals by Roberta
Vinci an Italian player who was so well-thought of she had
no odds in Vegas at winning the Open!
They took it out on her supposed beau, the rapper Drake.
They blamed him on the loss!
I also read he was blamed for Kentuckys loss to Wisconsin
in the Final Four and also the appearance of the bubonic plague
lately (I just made that one up!).
Oyvay!
Listen: I am no fan of rap, period; End of sentence. End of
story.
I have had some issues with the Williams family over the
years but steadily have grown to appreciate more and more
what they have done for the womens game and how hard they
have worked to get where they are now.
The fact that both are still playing though Venus seems
to be be winding down her career rather rapidly due to health
issues is testament to their heart.
They really dont need to play their post-tennis careers
are set very lucratively so its pure competitive heart.
They will be missed when they depart the scene.
At the same time, why cant her fans just admit that Vinci
played in Serenas own words the match of her life?
She lost to a player that had absolutely nothing to lose
versus a player trying to secure the calendar Slam and the tremendous pressure that means.
Theres no shame in that.
This loss doesnt tarnish her reputation one iota!
=====
Rest in peace, Moses Malone!

DELPHOS Jefferson
hosted Bluffton in Northwest
Conference volleyball action
at Jefferson High School

Tuesday night. The Wildcats


put up a good against the
Pirates but fell in three sets:
25-19, 25-15, 26-24.
The two teams displayed opening-set jitters as
unforced errors opened up
a 7-4 lead for the Pirates.

Sarah Millers tip over


the net followed later by a
Maggie Kimmett kill pulled
Jefferson within a point. The
Pirates 5-0 run was stopped
by Danielle Harman as the
junior middle hitter scored on
a tip, block and a return kill
on consecutive plays. With
the Wildcats trailing 16-11,
Harmans crosscourt slam
kept the home team close.
That was before the Pirates
outscored Jefferson 6-0 to
expand the difference to 10.
Devyn Carder landed a pair
of return tips between the
Pirate defense to make a late
run but the Wildcats fell by
six for a set deficit.
Jefferson took an early
lead in the second set as
Macy Wallace landed a serving ace. Blufftons taller
front line took over scoring
with a pair of kills and a
block. Miller landed another
soft tip as Jefferson trailed
6-5. Wallaces slam, Millers
ace and a kill by Harman
wasnt enough as Bluffton
extended its lead. An all-out
dig by Kimmett sparked a
long volley between the two
squads, eventually won by
the Wildcats. The Pirates outscored the home team 11-5

to seal the second-set victory


and take command.
The Wildcats showed
character in the final set, battling back from an early 3-0
deficit. A kill from midcourt
by Kimmett jump-started the
Cats offense. A pair of serves
by Wallace fell in for aces
as Jefferson stormed back to
lead 4-3. The Pirates went on
another scoring burst to lead
11-5 but Jefferson wasnt
going away quietly. Carder
landed an ace, Kimmetts kill
and a tip by Miller sparked
the Lady Cats again within a
point. Claire Thompson landed a return kill as Jefferson
took the lead 15-14.
The set was tied seven
more times and the lead went
back and forth. A strong
return kill by Wallace, a
cross-court slam by Harman
and back-to-back tips by
Carder knotted the contest at
21. After the Pirates took the
lead, Carder pulled her team
even with a block before
Bluffton led again by one.
Once again, Jefferson battled back as Kimmett and
Wallace notched kills to put
them ahead 24-23 as Bluffton
called timeout.

Lady Blue Jays check Knights in soccer

CONVOY St. Johns girls soccer


coach Adam Smith and his Crestview
counterpart, Joy Short, were looking
for the same things from their respective units during Tuesdays clash at the
Crestview Athletic Complex.
They were just coming from different
perspectives.
The Lady Blue Jays and their
more-veteran roster is looking to finetune their game halfway through the
2015 season and the Lady Knights, with
their much-younger roster of 19, are
looking for simple improvements.
They both got some of what they

For Lancer head man
Tyson Thatcher, he saw
improvement.
We were more active and
had more energy today than
Saturday. We had a couple
more players today than we
did then and it makes a difference, he explained. The
weather cooperated because
it wasnt as hot and humid
today, so the girls could play
harder for longer periods of
time. Stability is a struggle
for us but once we have more
people, it comes together
quicker.
The Lancers (1-6-0, 1-2-0
NWC) had the first good look
at 37:50 when Olivia Gorman
fired a floater from 25 yards
but Jefferson keeper Jessica
Pimpas (2 saves versus 2
shots on-goal) deflected it off
the crossbar and out of the
way.
It took the Wildcats (7-00, 2-0-0 NWC) about five
minutes to get rolling.

(Continued from page 7)


St. Johns jumped ahead
in the first set in part to a
pair of aces served up by
Csukker (22 assists, 5 aces,
8 digs). Back-to-back kills
by Buettner (15 kills, 4 aces,
9 digs) and Maddie Ellis (7
kills) extended the Jays led to
7-3. Geise (5 kills, 3 aces, 16
digs) teamed up with Ellis for
a block as the Lady Jays controlled the net. Olivia Kahny
(9 kills) and Maddie Pohlman
also had kills in the set as the
Jays won by eight.
Csukker once again ignited
the Jays in the set two with
a return tip that fell in for a
point. Gerker (8 assists) got
an assist to Buettner for the
kill as St. Johns jumped in
front. The Jays showed great
team hustle as Pohlman and
Buettner made great saves to
keep a volley alive, eventually
getting the point for a 7-2 lead
as Miller City called timeout.
Kahnys slam off of a
Gerker set and an ace by
Csukker were part of an 8-0
run by the Jays. Ellis got in
the scoring action with a perfectly placed tip as St. Johns
opened up a 17-10 advantage.
The Wildcats managed to cut
the lead to five before a pair of
kills from Buettner and Kahny
put the set away.
St. Johns jumped ahead
3-0 in the third set with an ace
by Geise and a Buettner block.
Csukker and Buettner hooked
up on back-to-back plays as
they continued to excel at the
net. Kahny followed with consecutive slams from sets by
Ellis and Csukker. Sophomore
Allie Buettner scored with a
left-handed kill as the Jays
doubled up Miller City 14-7.
Geise battled with Megan
Meyer of Miller City at the
net before finally getting the
point for St. Johns landing a
kill shot between the Wildcat
defense. Jana Hamilton landed an ace and St. John;s went
on to win by a dozen.
We played well enough
to win tonight, continued
Dammeyer. Now we have
two days to rest but work hard

VAN WERT Saturday


mornings Fort Jennings at
Van Wert boys soccer match
started in wet weather and
was played under threatening
skies the whole way.
The intensity never
wavered, even including the
Cougars being down to 10
men from the 33:12 point of
the first half onward.
The Musketeers got a late
goal in the first half and went
on to a 4-0 victory to improve
to 5-2-0.
We had a tough time in
our last two matches versus Ottawa-Glandorf and
Elida. We werent used to the
physical play and it threw us
off, Fort Jennings head man
Gregg Luthman explained.
We had some chances
versus O-G but never got
there against Elida. We talked before the match and at
halftime that we were going
to face this physical play
again but to play through it
and adjust. For example, we
couldnt hold the ball for
more than two touches or else
wed get knocked off the ball,
so we had to be quicker with

for more

tage of players.
The match was intensely
fought the entire way and the
defenses did a solid job of
contending on shots.
Several shots by both
teams were turned away by
defenders before they ever
got on-frame.
Van Werts best effort in
the first half was at 20:20
when Chris Kraner fired
from 12 yards and Musketeer
keeper Kyle Hellman caught
the deflection off a defender.
Healey denied a 25-yarder
by Ricker at 16:05; deflected
a 25-yarder by Brad Rice at
9:11 and Jeremy Smiths follow; and Ricker at 8:42 from
14 yards.
Van Wert (1-5-0) had a
19-yarder by Josh Fowler
deflected by Hellman.
Finally, at the 4:31 mark of
the first half, Alex Berelsman,
near the left goal line outside the 18, crossed a perfect
ball to Dylan Wiechart for a
point-blank shot into the goal
for a 1-0 edge.
The second half continued its fast-paced and rugged
style, with several players
either having to leave for a
moment or two due to being
banged up or cramping.
The defenses again made

it difficult for either offense


to get many open looks.
The visitors took advantage of one of those chances:
at 30:01. Off a steal, Ricker
got possession on a Rice pass
and dribbled within 12 yards
on the right post, where his
shot was low and hard inside
the post for a 2-0 edge.
At 27:13, Ricker got possession on the right wing and
his 14-yarder hit the left post
and went out of bounds.
With 26:25 remaining, the
Orange and Black got the
third goal of the match. On a
scramble in front of the net,
Ricker fed Wiechart off
a deflection for a pointblank tally.
Every chance the Cougars
had to squeeze a shot off, a
defender was in the way to
deflect the orb out of danger.
The visitors finished off
the scoring at 1:27. On a
scramble in front of Healey,
a defender tried to deflect
Berelsmans 8-yarder on the
doorstep of the right post and
re-directed the ball inside that
post.
The visitors owned the
corner kicks 9-2.

rest: slotting a 10-yarder from


the middle to the left side for
a 5-0 edge.
At the 15:34 mark, Avery
Mercer started with a throwin to Knebel on the right
sideline and eventually, she
crossed to McConnahea. She
juked a defender in the 18 and
drilled a 12-yard right-poster to the middle for a 6-nil
advantage.
The Lady Wildcats tallied their finale of the match
with just 2:10 left in the half.
Hamilton began a counterattack from deep in her space
and dribbled up the left sideline and toward the middle,
finding McConnahea. She
dribbled the rest of the way
and fired a 12-yarder from
the middle of the 18 back to
the left for a 7-0 lead.
It took us a while to wake
up. On paper, we were the
better team but we tell our
girls we have to earn it; no
one will give it to us, Stober
added. Once that first one
went in, it clicked for us and
we started to put it togethhr
like I know we can and how
we have been.
With Stober seeking to
get more playing time for
the non-starters as well
as letting others play different spots for future use
the Wildcats did not score,
though they had opportunities.
They tried 10 shots on-goal
but Lancer keeper Maddie
Gorman stopped nine.
The best of their chances

came at 6:31. McConnahea


had a 1-on-1 with the sophomore but from the top of the
18, her effort was deflected
back to her. On the ricochet,
McConnaheas closer-in try
was also denied.
The visitors had more
chances as well.
They had an effort to break
the scoring drought at 6:00
but backup Wildcat netminder Avery Mercer deflected
Autumn Proctors 12-yarder
out of bounds.
They did get that zero off
their side at 2:29. Frankie
Carey fired a 22-yarder outside the left post and went
high to that side inside the
post for a 7-1 scoreboard.
The Lancers did have
a couple of girls leave the
match the second half after
getting hit with hard balls.
We won the second half
1-0. Thats a positive for us
and a sign of good things,
Thatcher added. We have a
match with Paulding and they
are a first-year program that
is struggling. Weve had our
share as well. Unfortunately,
we lost one of the girls for
that match from today and
another will have her tonsils
worked on that day as well.
We will get a player off a
transfer for her first match.
Both teams return to the
pitch Thursday: Lincolnview
at home versus Paulding at 5
p.m. and Jefferson at Kalida
at 6 p.m.

ball movement. We got back


to some of that stuff that wed
been doing so successfully
before.
For Van Wert head man
Matt Hernandez, he was
pleased with the effort of his
team.
Being down to 10 men
doesnt happen very often.
In my five years on the staff
here, Id never seen it,
Hernandez added. We had to
have players step up and give
that much extra and they did;
we played very hard and Im
proud of how we responded.
We didnt just play defense,
either; we had scoring chances. What hurt us, though, is
losing a starter like that, guys
from deeper in the bench had
to play more than normal and
they are younger ones that I
havent had a chance to work
with and get them varsity
time. Still, they battled.
In the first 20 minutes, the
Musketeers had three shots
on-goal: two by Kyle Maag
and one by Troy Ricker; but
Van Wert goalkeeper Wade
Healey (10 saves versus 17
shots) was there.
At 33:12, the Cougars
Zach Blakeley was sent off
for with a red card, giving the
Musketeers an 11-10 advan-

The Lancers will return Tuesday at Deerfield Golf Course to

However, the home team


began to take command and
at 33:44, went up top 1-0.
On a lead pass out of the
middle by Arianna Knebel,
McConnahea got a perfect
run down the left side and
her 10-yarder from that wing
found the right side of the net.
At 32:51, Knebel got in on
the scoring act. Off a steal,
she got a good run down the
left side and drilled a 6-yarder that Schroeder got a hand
on but couldnt stop for a 2-0
edge.
After Maddie Gorman
had an 18-yarder denied by
Pimpas at 27:34, the beat
continued at 27:02. Off a
steal, Knebel dribbled to the
right post and fired a 12-yarder that Schroeder kicked back
to the junior, who delivered
on the closer shot for 3-0.
At 26:36, the Lady Lancers
were called for a handball
in the box. However, Logan
Hamilton missed on the penalty kick.
Still, the hosts kept attacking and made it 4-0 at the
21:27 mark. From Hamiltons
side of the center circle, she
fired to Knebel for a run
down the right post and she
got a 1-on-1 with the keeper
for a 12-yarder that she slotted to the left side.
With 17:45 left in the
first 40 minutes, Addison
Schimmoeller threaded a
pass through the defense to
McConnahea and she did the

Movie Review

No Escape

Directed by John Erick Dowdle Rated R


Less than 24 hours after relocating to take a new job in
Southeast Asia, an American
businessman and his family
find themselves in the middle of
a violent political revolt.
Thats really all there is to
No Escape, but its enough to
fill 103 minutes with a surge of
raw, primal-survival adrenaline
as Jack Dwyer (Owen Wilson),
his wife (Lake Bell) and their
two young daughters (Sterling
Jerins and Claire Geare) make a
life-of-death dash along a terrifying gauntlet of madness, murder and mayhem.
The movie was filmed in
Thailand, but the country in
which the (fictional) No Escape
takes place is never named
likely because the filmmakers
hope no specific part of the
world (like Thailand) takes it
personally. The rioting natives are a nameless, voiceless,
mostly faceless horde of marauding Asians, but they might
as well be zombiesor mutants, demons or even the Devil
himself. Director John Erick
Dowdle, working from a script
co-written with his collaborator/brother Drew, keeps pulses
pounding with some of the same
pulpy shocks and lurid sights
he used in the schlock-horror
flicks Quarantine (2008), Devil
(2010) and So Below (2014).
Dowdle knows what makes
an audience jump, jolt and
squirmlike with a sequence in
which Jack has to get his family, and himself, from one high
rooftop onto another. But other
parts of the movie are a mess:
the editing is a jumble; action
scenes downshift into slurry,
blurry slow-mo for no good
reason; in one scene, daylight
abruptly turns into full night-

his wife and their two young


daughters under the constant
threat of being beaten, raped or
killed by an all-male horde of
fourth-world monsters. You
may wince at its less-than-noble notions of race and cultural
relations, but you cant say that
No Escape isnt well timed.
With a leading U.S. presidential contender campaigning to
put up a wall to keep immigrant rapists and killers at
bay, it seems safe to say a good
number of people wont have
much trouble relating to Jack
Dwyers desperation to shield
his wife and kids from people
on the other side of the world
practically salivating to make
them suffer and bleed.
At one point, Brosnans
character notes the situations
blurred moral boundary lines
which give clarity to their situation. Theres no good or bad
here, he says. Theres just
getting you and your family the
hell out. Once a lot of viewers
get out of the muddled, nightmarish obstacle course that is
No Escape, they might just see
clearly enough to vow to never venture off the green, green
grass of home ever again.

Bodies pile up, buildings are
bombed into rubble, Americans
are slaughtered in the streets.
The title tells us theres no
escape, and for much of the
movie, it looks that way. (The
movie was originally titled The
Coup, but test audiences apparently found that foreign
phrase unappealing.) Thank
goodness for Pierce Brosnan,
who keeps showing up at just
the right time as a British expatriate who knows his way
around town, and then some.
His character also provides
a mini-lesson in the politics,
multinational colonialism and
economics that have caused the
roiling ruckusand the mobs
seething hatred of Americans.
Wilson is best known for
playing doofuses, and its interesting to see him in an out-ofhis-element everyman role
with more grit than goof-ery.
Bell, currently starring in the
Netflix comedy series Wet Hot
American Summer, isnt given
much to do other than react to
the horrific scenario.
Dowdle amps up the tension, in scene after scene,
of the terror of a white man,

Top 10 open enrollment benefits mistakes to avoid


BY NATHANIEL SILLIN

How much time do you spend reviewing


your benefits before open enrollment each
year?
If your answer is not much, youre not
alone. A recent survey by insurer Aflac (http://
workforces.aflac.com/about-the-study.php)
says that 90 percent of Americans choose
the same benefits year after year and that 42
percent forego up to $750 annually by making
poor choices.
Rushing through annual benefits updates
or making such uninformed decisions in insurance, retirement or other workplace-based
benefits are actually part of a bigger story.
Open enrollment is just one part of an overall financial plan: Unfortunately, too many
employees see it as the only financial planning they have to do all year.
In reality, a safe financial future depends
mostly on the savings, investing and spending
decisions you make outside the workplace.
As many employers are looking to shrink or
discontinue the retirement and health benefits
they offer, its time to take a fresh look at open
enrollment.
Here are 10 benefits mistakes you might
want to avoid.
Not having an overall financial plan.
Your company may offer excellent benefits
now. However, the Labor Department reports
that average worker tenure at U.S. companies
is only 4.6 years, so the biggest open enrollment mistake might be assuming your current

EDWARD JONES INVESTMENTS
Close of business Sept. 15, 2015

We cant emphasize it
enough. But well try.

INFORMATION SUBMITTED
LIMA The University of Northwestern Ohio will be featured on national television this fall! The 8-minute feature segment will air within Detroit Muscle as part of the PowerNation
block of shows on the following dates and times:
Premiere
10:30 a.m. Sept. 27 on Spike
4:30 p.m. Oct 1 on NBC Sports Network
9:30 a.m. Oct. 3 on CBS Sports Network
Encore
10:30 a.m. Nov. 1 on Spike
4:30 p.m. Nov. 5 on NBC Sports Network
9:30 a.m. Nov. 7 on CBS Sports Network
PowerNation is a 2-hour block of television programming
and is a collection of TVs most watched automotive how-to
shows including Detroit Muscle, Engine Power, Xtreme Off
Road and Truck Tech.
The UNOH special will start with a 5-minute feature on the
University, specifically the College of Applied Technologies,
followed by a commercial break. After the commercial break
there will be a 3-minute feature on the UNOH Motorsports
Team.
The PowerNation television crew travelled to the UNOH
Campus in July to tour the campus and interview a variety of
students, faculty, and staff. The finished segment shows what
an amazing facility UNOH has along with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities it offers to its students.

can assist with eligibility, types of accounts,


contribution limits and tax issues associated
with these choices.
Leaving
retirement
selections
unchanged. As the Aflac data indicates,
many individuals dont change their investment focus in self-directed retirement plans
for years. Thats why reviewing options in
advance is essential.
Overlooking wellness options. Many
employers pay for exercise, cholesterol
screenings, weight loss, smoking cessation,
immunizations or related benefits that can
make you healthier, save money and possibly
lower health premiums.
Bypassing transportation breaks. If you
drive or take public or company-sponsored
transportation to and from work, you may
qualify for specific discounts or tax deductions. IRS Publication 15-B covers these programs and how to use them most effectively.
Forgetting education benefits. If an
employer is willing to train you to advance
in your career, dont pass it up. However, get
advice on the possibility of tax liability for
these benefits. Separately, check out employer-sponsored education grant or scholarship
awards for you or your kids that can be free
money.
Bottom line: Open enrollment is just one
piece of a well-organized financial puzzle.
Make sure your employer provided benefits
choices compliment savings, investing and
spending decisions youre making on your
own.

PAX

(Continued from page 1)


Its actually one step
beyond classroom management, explained Dr. Jan
Osborn, superintendent of the
Putnam County Educational
Service Center. We know that
the prefrontal lobe develops
later in children and that one
of the things that we have to
do to help them develop their
brain is learn how to make
good decisions. And so (PAX)
works with executive function,
behavior inhibition and it helps
kids learn how to make better
decisions that carries on with
them as adults.
But, while crucial, the science of PAX, the psychology,
is just one small part of an
overall whole that is winning
over educators internationally.
I was skeptical, confessed Melissa Sukup, a fifthand sixth-grade teacher at
Jennings. I cant imagine not
doing it now. I even had a students mom text me and ask,
Whats this Pax. He wont
shut up about this PAX.
A lot of people are skeptical; youre walking around
with a harmonica around your
neck, concurred Stacy Vaske,
a second-grade teacher at
Jennings who was trained in
the system and implemented it
late last school year.
And that harmonica, as a

Software

Roads
symbol, is key to and indicative of why PAX is gaining in
popularity. At the heart of the
programs appeal is an intrinsic desire to cause no harm, to
support and nurture self-confidence and to significantly
reduce, if not eliminate, any
perceived need for negative
reinforcement techniques. To
accomplish this, the program
is unabashedly silly, going
so far as to establish a whole
new vocabulary of nonsensical words, with spleem and
tootle at the top of the list.
And, of course, the use of the
aforementioned harmonica.
The instant I introduced
it last year, from day one, my
kids loved it, Vaske said. Its
like a switch. It turns on almost
automatically.
In the parlance of PAX,
spleems are behaviors deemed
inappropriate, most of which
fall into a category of behaviors typical of school-aged
children: fidgeting, standing,
talking without permission,
touching, tapping, inattention
and more. While a behavior
that the program is designed
to correct, the non-word
spleem was intentionally
designed to avoid negativity
the long e sound requires
the use of the same muscles we
all use to smile.
As for tootles? Tootles
are the antithesis of tattles.

The district is still in need of bus drivers.
With two schools, covering extra-curricular trips get spread pretty thin, Wolfe
explained. There are times when we
struggle to find enough drivers.
The board also approved the NonPublic Auxiliary Services (NPAS) program and salaries for St. Johns Schools,
including teachers Amie Buettner and Ann
Byrne; clerk Vickie Pohlman; Guidance
Counselor Al Unterbrink; tutors Todd
Schulte, Aaron Elwer and Lynette Haehn;
administrative, speech and nurses services; and textbook supplies.
Pawsitives from board member
Erica Pimpas included the success of
the Competition Cheer Team at recent
events, including two first-place finishes,

THANK YOU

second place at the Van Wert County


Fair and third place at Kalida Pioneer
Days; and Shane Lear offering his talents
to the junior high and varsity volleyball
teams for conditioning, jumping and basic
warm-ups.
Board member Joe Rode also has a
Pawsitive for the football coaches and their
team building overnight at Stadium Park.
Motivational speaker Todd Congwer,
author of Lead, for Gods Sake spent
time with the team and players camped
out on the practice field.
In other business, the board:
Accepted the resignation of Nicole
Geise as middle school 5-hour evening
custodian and approved a 1-year contract
for her as cafeteria personnel at the middle
school;
Granted a 1-year contract to Jeffery

ous with their tootles, there


are rewards. Not candy. Not
toys. Not even gold stars. What
the kids receive, what theyre
working diligently for, is the
opportunity to act out in the
form of Grannys Whacky
Prizes. When the students perform at a level where Granny
gets Whacky, a student draws
a slip of paper from a bag of
similar slips. Written on it is
something along the lines of
Sing a song like a dog or cat,
or Sit under your desk or
even Snowball fight. Along
with the action is a recommended duration, the amount
of time the kids are permitted
to do whatever the slip says;
typically less than one minute.
For the teachers, the reward
received is even more impressive: a more effective environment in which to teach.
Theres less repetition,
Sukup said. Once you
blow that harmonica and tell
them what theyre going to
do, theyre paying attention.
Whereas before, when you
didnt have that harmonica
as a clue, you probably had
50 percent paying attention
while youre explaining. Now
you have at least 95 percent,
I would say, knowing whats
going on. I just feel like theres
so much more instruction
time.

Friemoth as 5-hour evening custodian at


the middle school;
Accepted the resignation of Mary
Boehmer as van driver effective Sept. 30;
Approved a 1-year contract for
Brenda Lorencovic as van driver effective
Oct. 1;
Hired Suzette Sanders with a 1-year
contract for 2-hour cafeteria personnel at
the high school;
Approved a 1-year contract for
Stephanie Altman as a 2-hour cafeteria
personnel at the middle school effective
Sept. 28;
Hired Beth Geise as varsity basketball cheer coach for the 2015-16 school
year; and
Approved FFA members attending National Convention in Louisville,
Kentucky, Oct. 28-31.

Council also approved the purchase of a used dump truck for
use in the village. The truck, a 2007 Ford Powerstroke currently
owned by Union Township, will become available to the village
in roughly 30 days at a cost of $25,000. Several members of
council remarked that theyd had the chance to inspect the vehicle
and were impressed with its condition. The vehicle comes with
accessories that include a 10-foot plow and a salt spreader.
Its got everything you need for plowing snow, quipped
Maintenance Supervisor Ted Wrasman.
Having approved that purchase, council then addressed the
dispensation of their current dump truck. Smith advised council
that the Village of Kalida had expressed an interest in acquiring
their truck for use in that villages park system. Pending the purchase of their new dump truck, council approved selling their old
truck to Kalida for $3,000.
In other business, council:
approved the purchase of a new sewer pump at a total partsand-labor cost of $9,679 from Industrial Fluid Management,
McClure;
heard the third reading and passed a new tax ordinance,
bringing the village into compliance with requests from the
Regional Income Tax Agency; and
established Oct. 30 as the date the village will celebrate
Halloween. In keeping with past years, trick-or-treating will take
place from 6-7:30 p.m.

Horoscopes
ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, explore a new way of thinking and keep an open mind. Maintain energy and enthusiasm about
a new project. Your energy will inspire others to get moving.

LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23


You are still in love with that special someone after all of these years,
Libra. Share your good fortune with
others and you may inspire some
new relationships in the process.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21


You may need to get a little pushy
to get what you need, Taurus. Dont
overdo it, but dont hesitate to insert
yourself into certain situations this
week.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22


Scorpio, it may be difficult to avoid
conflict this week, but do your best
to smooth over the situation. Try not
to escalate any encounters and add
fuel to the fire.

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21


This is a good week to share your
positive thoughts and hopes with
others. Its advantageous to have
as many people on your side as you
can.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21


Sagittarius, give something frivolous a try this week. You may find
it takes your mind off of other things
and restores some of your natural
joviality.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22


Cancer, you have many things to do
in the coming days, but you can still
manage to have fun along the way.
Schedule some rest and rejuvenation
once the week has passed.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20


Capricorn, someone is proud of all
you have accomplished. Dont feel
badly about bragging a little about
the things you have done. Its good
to also be proud of yourself.

LEO Jul 23/Aug 23


If you learn something new this
week, it very well may be something
important, Leo. Stay attuned to the
things going on around you, so you
know when to act.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18


Aquarius, your generosity knows
no bounds this week. All that you
do unselfishly will come back in
spades. Keep up your charitable efforts.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22


Getting your point across will be
difficult this week, Virgo. Take a
patient approach and give others the
time to explain their points of view
before sharing your own.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20


Pisces, if things seem a little bit
confusing this week, take some time
to sit and reflect. The answers will
come to you eventually.

Rather than establish an environment in which students


alienate one another, tootles
are compliments intended to
bolster self-confidence. At
the beginning of every week
in Vaskes class, each kid is
provided with the name of a
fellow student and encouraged
to write that student a complimentary note. Each is also permitted to write a second tootle
to the child of their choice.
Both are then placed on a billboard for all to see. When the
board fills, the students take
their tootles home.
And the harmonica? The
harmonica is the tool with
which teachers garner the
attention of their pupils. When
it is blown, all students are
taught to stop whatever theyre
doing, look toward the sound
and raise their right hands in
the air, the first two fingers
splayed in the universal gesture
of peace. As with the words
tootle and spleem, the harmonica was chosen to help avoid
any negative connotations.
If you have a child who
was abused in any sort of
way, Vaske explained, if you
clap, if you whistle, if you turn
the lights off, that could spark
a bad emotion. This is just a
calming sound.
Periodically,
provided
spleems are kept to a minimum and the kids are gener-

Trivia

Answers to last Saturdays questions:


Seven percent of U.S. children under the age of 18 live in households headed by grandparents, according to the 2010 U.S. Census.
In the Old Testament, mention is twice made of the Feast of Trumpets, the ceremonial blowing of the
shofar, or rams horn, that takes place today the first day of the seventh month of the Jewish year.
Todays questions:
What four items, labeled Inch Worm, Jazzberry Jam, Mango Tango and Wild Blue Yonder, that were
added to a popular product line for children in 2003?
In 1908s government doublespeak, what was a hexiform rotatable surface compression unit?
Answers in Saturdays Herald.
Todays joke:
It was a particularly tough football game and nerves were on edge. The home team had been the
victim of three or four close calls and they were now trailing the visitors by a touch-down and a field
goal. When the official called yet another close one in the visitors favor, the home quarterback blew
his top.
How many times can you do this to us in a single game? he screamed. You were wrong on the
out-of-bounds, you were wrong on that last first down, and you missed an illegal tackle in the first
quarter.
The official just stared.
The quarterback seethed, but he suppressed the language that might get him tossed from the
game. What it comes down to, he bellowed, is that you STINK!
The official stared a few more seconds. Then he bent down, picked up the ball, paced off 15 yards
and put the ball down. He turned to face the steaming quarterback.
The official finally replied, And how do I smell from here?
