Library passes 2016 budget


BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS The Delphos Public
Library has a permanent 2016 Budget in
place. Trustees voted unanimously for this
years appropriations of $937,000.
Director Kelly Rist explained increases
in several accounts.
We have some conferences coming
up our employees need to attend to we
increased the Travel and Meeting account
and we have had some vandalism at the
Peltier memorial so we are going to need
to install cameras so whoever is doing it
can be caught and they can pay for the
repairs, Rist said.

A mysterious powder in the First


Edition Building is being blamed on deteriorating runs for the buildings heating
system. Rist said runs are currently under
the building under a concrete slab and will
need to be moved into the ceiling once the
heating season is over.
Rist also outlined plans to redo the front
steps of the library, including installing a
handicapped ramp and automatic doors
on the main entrance to make the front of
the building and night book deposit handicapped accessible.
She also noted the First Edition
Building has WiFi with a full wireless

without contacting other family members to
confirm that there are many scams circulating the area; please call the Better Business
Bureau or the police department if you need
more information.

Gifts of thought from the over 60 crowd...


A Visit with Marilyn Gengler
79wise.
Seniorwise visited the Delphos suburb of Landeck to visit with Marilyn
Gengler. Marilyn is a long-time resident of this timeless, good village. She
began our conversation noting fond
appreciation to her mother and father
for encouraging her to begin piano lessons at St. Rose School in Lima. In her
fourth-grade year, Marilyn began taking
these lessons from Sister Lois at school
and Carl Kroske outside of school.
Neither instructor was aware that she
was taking lessons from the other and
Marilyn learned a mix of classical and
contemporary piano playing this way.
At the age of 14, she began playing
the organ for daily masses at Lima St.
Rose (for 12 years). For many years
after, Marilyn would play piano/organ
for Landeck St. John the Baptist and
Van Wert St. Mary of the Assumption.
She presently plays weekend masses
at Lima St Johns (for 20+ years) and
pinch-hit plays for other area churches
as needed. In all, Marilyn has played
for 65+ years and in her spare time
taught intermediate math at Van Wert
St. Marys (1979-99) and has taught
piano lessons to countless area kids for
35+ years.
Some of Marilyns Favorites
Season: Summer because I can be
outside most of the time.
Color: Marilyn stated the color blue,

the sky is blue, the sea is blue, and of


course Old Blue Eyes Frank Sinatra.
Food:
Marilyns
homemade
Lasagna. Enough said!
Music: Big Band and her favorite
vocalist being Frank Sinatra. Marilyn
especially liked dancing to this music
with her husband Dick.
Car: Marilyn identified no particular make, model or year except to say
she liked their station wagon because
we could get the kids way, way back
in the car away from us when they misbehaved!
Sports Moment Ever: Growing up
watching her four brothers play football
with two of her brothers playing at the

college level, noting brother Bob playing at Miami of Ohio University when
Marilyn was a freshman there.
School days memories: Marilyn
carefully recalled wandering the halls
of Lima St. Rose while she was thought
to be practicing at the piano. Those no
harm, no foul days of discovery.
Favorite Decade: The time in the
60s, 70s, 80s raising her family.
Favorite president: Harry Truman
because he set his mind, he got things
done, you didnt have to wonder what
he thought, he was a family man and I
admired him. Marilyn recalled the slogans Give-em hell Harry, The buck
stops here.
If I had a magic wand and could fix
one thing in this world, Id Marilyn
seemed magical saying peace among
families, peace among world leaders,
peace among your fellow workers, get
along and try to talk things out, work
at it until you get it to come out right,
give in and listen to others, their opinions and way of life, even if it may be
different from yours, we each have our
own ideas but there is a way that God
sees that we should live peacefully like
the animals.
You may have covered it all there
Marilyn, thanks!

COLUMBUS Ohio
Attorney General Mike
DeWine, Columbus Police
Chief Kimberley Jacobs,
Franklin County Sheriff
Zach Scott, and Franklin
County Prosecutor Ron
OBrien announced Friday a
Columbus teenager is now
facing charges for allegedly
burglarizing nearly a dozen
homes in Central Ohio.
Victor Milton, 19, of
Columbus, was arrested by
members of the Central Ohio
Retail Crime and Counterfeit
Checks Task Force Thursday
night after a Franklin County
Grand Jury indicted him on
11 felony counts of burglary.
Milton is accused of breaking into 11 homes in northern
Columbus between October
2015 and December 2015. He

allegedly forced open sliding


glass doors in the early morning hours to gain entry into
the victims homes while the
residents were sleeping.
The defendant is accused
of stealing more than $42,000
in property from the homes,
including televisions, iPads, cell
phones, purses, and computers.
Milton then allegedly sold the
items on the black market.
The victims in this case
should be able to feel safe
in their own homes, but this
defendant shattered that sense
of security when he allegedly
broke into their houses as
they slept, said Attorney
General Mike DeWine. We
take crimes of this nature
very seriously in Ohio and
will hold offenders accountable.

More than 1,000 friends and family


gather to mourn passing of Uncle Benji

BY LOVINA EICHER
The month of February is
already upon us. This past
week went fast and its hard
to believe its past time to pen
this column again.
Saturday we ground all the
hamburger from the beef we
butchered. We made around
two hundred fifty hamburger
patties and packaged all the
hamburger for the freezer. I
will make vegetable soup yet
from the meat we cook from
the bones. This will wind
down all the butchering from
the beef. We canned the beef
chunks and some hamburger.
I like canned hamburger for
casseroles. It doesnt have to
be fried before adding it so it
saves a step. We also use it to
make sloppy joes.
While working on the hamburger we got a call saying
that Joes Uncle Benji Eicher
passed away in Marysville,
Indiana.
Sunday we attended church
in Charlotte, Michigan, at
Moses brother Daniel and
Mariannas place. Its always
interesting to visit other communities. We appreciated the
hospitality!
We enjoyed visiting with
Lydia Coblentz. Her husband Freeman was a cousin
to my dad. He passed away
twenty years ago. Lydia is
almost ninety and has many
interesting stories to tell from
her youth. One of her granddaughters wrote a book called
Seasons about Lydias life.
I have the book and we all

Marestail control

The annual weed surveys


prior to soybean harvest last
fall revealed that marestail
(Conyza Canadensis [L.]
Cronquist) is still the top

This tough native plant began
to appear in our fields about
eight years ago. Marestail is
a member of the aster family.
Its tiny inconspicuous flowers (about 1/8 inch across)
will develop near the top of
the plant mid-summer to fall.

Bearcats run by Jefferson Jays

DELPHOS With the
Northwest Conference boys
basketball title already
claimed by Lincolnview, the
Spencerville Bearcats made
the short trip to Delphos
Friday for a post-season tune-

up with the Wildcats.


Spencerville dictated an
up-tempo pace, combined
with lights-out shooting on
the Stage, for a 88-58 victory.
Jefferson seniors Josh
Teman, Trey Smith, Ryan
Goergens, Dalton Hicks,
Grant Wallace and Alex
Neubert were playing their

final home game for the red


and white faithful.
The opening minutes of
the contest were back and
forth as Jefferson scored
first on a short jumper by
Smith followed by a long
triple from Mason Nourse
of Spencerville. Both squads
traded baskets as Hicks connected twice and Bailey Croft

grabbed a pair of offensive


rebounds as the Wildcats
clung to a 8-7 lead. Jeffersons
9-0 scoring run was sparked
by Hicks connecting for the
third time along with an
assist and 3-pointer by Josh
Teman. After Spencerville
coach Kevin Sensabaugh
called timeout to slow the
Wildcats momentum, his
team responded with a 17-0
run to take control of the
game 24-17. During that
offensive explosion, Dakota
Pritchard scored three times
along with a pair of buckets
by Croft and Nourse.
When Sensabaugh was
asked what he told his team
during the timeout to spark
his offense, the 14-year head
coach replied I didnt say
anything to them. They are a
veteran team and they knew
what needed to be done to
get back in the game. I simply called timeout to stop
the Wildcats run and let our
guys regroup mentally.
Stockwells free throw
broke the Bearcat scoring
streak but Spencerville continued to score from close
range as Damien Corso
scored inside and Nourse
connected on the fast break.
Teman drained a 3-pointer to
move the home squad within
30-19 but thats as close as
the Wildcats would get the
rest of the way.

Lancers survive Ada for solo NWC title


BY JIM COX
DHI Media Correspondent
sports@timesbulletin.com

MIDDLE POINT Lincolnview


clinched the Northwest Conference
championship Friday night, but that
wasnt a sure thing until, literally, the
last second.
Ada had a 12-foot baseline jumper
with three seconds left that would have
tied it, but the ball went off the front
rim, and the Lancers Chandler Adams
snared the rebound to seal a 49-47 win.
That set off a long and raucous celebration among Lincolnview fans, players, and coaches. With one league game
left for all NWC teams, Lincolnview is
7-0 while Crestview and Spencerville
are tied for second at 5-2. The Lancers
are 20-1 overall. Ada is 10-10 overall
and 1-6 in the NWC.
Im just extremely happy for these
eight seniors, said Lincolnview coach
Brett Hammons. We just accomplished
something that hasnt been done since
1997. Its a credit to these eight seniors

KALIDA Winning a
league title is never easy.
Repeating a league championship is even more difficult.
That was the task at hand
for the Kalida boys basketball team Friday night. The
Wildcats went into the game
needing a win to repeat as
Putnam County League
champions.
Continental gave the
Wildcats all they wanted for
three quarters before Kalida
used a run to start the final
quarter on their way to a
54-47 win on Homecoming
Night for Kalida.
The win allows Kalida
to repeat as PCL champions
as they finish league play
at 6-1 and are 12-8 overall. Continental is 3-3 in the
league and 6-12 overall.
Columbus Grove (5-1
PCL) will have an opportunity to gain a share of the
title tonight when they visit
Miller City.
Im so proud of that,
Kalida coach Dick Kortokrax
said. These kids have to
work hard. A number of them
played last year because we
only had two seniors. Im so
proud of these guys, being
the type of kids they are and
finding a way to be at-least
co-champs two years in a
row.
The contest came down
to the fourth quarter after
Continental outscored the

Wildcats 15-12 in the third


quarter for a 37-36 lead.
Kalida turned the game
around in the opening 2:14
of the fourth quarter with a
9-2 run to take a lead they
wouldnt lose.
Kalida went inside on
their first two possessions
of the quarter with Brandon
Verhoff and Trent Gerding
scoring.
After
Trevor
Williamson scored for
Continental, Wildcat junior
Trent Siebeneck took over
with eight straight points, that
included a pair of 3-pointers.
After the Williamson basket, Siebeneck connected on
a 3-pointer, then after a Pirate
turnover, Siebeneck took an
outlet pass and raced to the
basket for a layup that forced
a Continental timeout. Out
of timeout, Williamson hit a
pullup jumper for the Pirates
before Siebeneck answered
with a 3-pointer from the
top of the key for a 48-41
Wildcats lead.
There was no question
Trent made the difference
tonight, Kortokrax said. He
came off the bench and did
some key things for us. He
was ready to play tonight and
we needed him. He was our
spark off the bench tonight.
That was the difference in
the game, Continental coach
Kurtis Brown said. There
were three straight possessions where they got offensive rebounds and that was
the difference in the game.

NEW BREMEN A defensive battle between host New


Bremen and visiting team St. Johns stayed close throughout
the game despite a 10-point difference at the end.
The biggest lead of the night was eight points at the end of
the third quarter until the final two minutes of the game when
the Cardinals capitalized on a few errors by the Blue Jays
to end the game with a score of 59-49 in Midwest Athletic
Conference action Friday night.
They extended their lead a bit in the third quarter and our
guys did a good job of fighting back, St. Johns head coach
Aaron Elwer said. In the fourth we just had a few possessions
where our execution just wasnt good: there was a turnover, or
a moving screen, or a missed checkout and they were able to
capitalize on it.
The game started with both teams scoring 11 in the first
quarter, followed by a 23-21 second quarter with New Bremen
ahead.
With two minutes left in the third, Cardinal junior Tate
Myers got two to put the score at 29-29. He followed up with
two more plus a foul shot.
After a St. Johns error, New Bremen sophomore Avery
Powers drained a 3 to extend the Cardinals lead to 37-30.
Powers iced the cake with another 3 at the buzzer to end the
third at a score of 40-32.
St. Johns defense stepped up in the fourth with junior Tim
Kreeger grabbing an offensive rebound and putting it back up
for a bucket.
Powers answered with another 3, though, to put the
Cardinals up 43-34.
Blue Jay sophomore Collin Will got a 3 of his own with
2:43 left in the game to bring the Jays within five at 49-44.
New Bremen head coach Adam Dougherty was given a
technical foul for unsportsmanlike conduct for his reaction
to a foul called against his team with 2:09 on the clock. The
Cardinals home crowd was also displeased with the call.
After that, New Bremen started adding to its lead with their
own made foul shots to end with a score of 59-49.
We had a great week of practice but were in a tough
skid here, Elwer said. Our effort and enthusiasm was good
tonight; it was just our execution at times that wasnt good
enough to win on the road.
The Jays head back home tonight to host Bath.

Jays fall short on Senior Night

DHI Media Correspondent

DELPHOS St. Johns
welcomed New Bremen
to Robert A. Arnzen
Gymnasium for the final
game of the 2015-16 regular
season.
On paper after looking at the Midwest Athletic
Conference girls basketball
statistics, the contest figured
to be an offensive showcase of 3-point shots. New
Bremen leads the league with
99 triples (4.95 per game)
and St. Johns was in second
with 79 (4.16 per game).
Madilynn Schulte of St.
Johns also leads the MAC
with 43 triples followed by
Alyse Clune and Paige Jones
of New Bremen.
With the game on the line,
it was the defense that was
the difference-maker as New
Bremen pulled out the 46-42
road win.
Before the game, St.
Johns honored its four
seniors (Sydney Fischbach,
Lexie Hays, Maddie Pohlman
and Rachel Pohlman) playing
their final home game with a
gift of balloons.
Appropriately, the first
bucket of the contest came
from Fischbach from inside
to give the Jays the early lead.
After the Cardinals scored
five straight points, freshman
Hayleigh Bacome knotted
the bird fest with a 3-ball.
Fischbach scored again with

a drive to the rack and Hays


scored on a nifty underhanded scoop shot. New Bremen
landed a pair from long range
and led 12-11 after one.
The Cardinals outscored
the Jays 8-2 to open the second as Schulte hit a pullup jumper for the lone St.
Johns basket. After a timeout by St. Johns coach Dan
J. Grothouse with 4:53 left
in the half, Hays responded with a 3-ball to pull the
Jays within 20-16. Bacome
showed her quickness, blowing by the New Bremen
defense for two. With St.
Johns mounting a comeback,
the Cardinals pulled out their
full-court press, which the
Jays had little trouble breaking. Schultes triple moved
the Jays within a point
22-21 but they could quite
catch the Cardinals, trailing
at the half.
The high-low combination
of Jessica Geise to Fischbach
opened the third-quarter scoring for the Jays. Geise tied
the score at 25 with a drive
down the paint only to have
the Cardinals Jones put New
Bremen back in front. The
battle would be knotted two
more times with a Fischbach
offensive board and putback,
along with a baseline drive
by Hays. New Bremen took
a 3-point lead at the charity stripe before Hays evened
the score for the fourth time
in the period with a rainbow from downtown. A free
throw by Fischbach put the

(Continued from page 7A)


Rachel had a good
first half and Melina had
some good putbacks, said
Taflinger. We gave up too
many easy shots and easy
buckets on in-bounds plays.
Morgan Sutton drained a
foul line shot to open the
second half well for Ada.
Bowersock sank a 12-footer
and Olivia Gorman splashed
a triple to pull the Lancers
within 29-12 at the 5:31 mark.
Woods netted a driving layup and then knocked
down a 10-footer to re-build
th emargin to 21. Bowersock
tallied a stickback but Teyah
Sautter drilled a right baseline
11-footer off the bench.
Maddie Gorman converted
two foul shots for the visitors
and then hit a layup to get
within 35-18 with 1:55 left
in the period. But that was as
close as it would get.
Woods converted another
layin to end the third quarter
on top, 37-18.
Haley Wyss swished a right
wing trey and Faine canned a
driving banker to push the
lead to 43-18. Frankie Carey
sank a layup for the Lancers,
but Carlee Marshall answered
with a fine driving layup.
Alena Looser splashed
a trifecta for the last
Lincolnview basket. Faine
drained a triple from the top
of the key with 2:44 left to
provide the biggest lead of
the night at 27 points.
A driving bank shot by
Olivia Gorman ended the
scoring 29 seconds later.
Wildman and Woods tied
for scoring honors with 14

Jays in the lead for the first


time since early in the first
quarter and freshman Betty
Vorst made sure they stayed
in front with a jumper to beat
the third-quarter buzzer.
The turning point in the
ball game happened with
New Bremen in their press
as the fourth quarter began.
A technical foul on the Jays
accounted for four points
for the Cardinals, converting
both free throws and keeping
the ball for the bucket for a
38-35 lead. Vorst drilled a
triple pulling the Jays back
38-38. The St. Johns defense
came through with a big turnover when Bacomes steal led
to a free throw by Fischbach
for the lead. The Cardinals
used their height advantage
inside for a pair of baseline
drives to grab the lead 42-39.
Fischbach scored with 32
seconds left on the clock and
was fouled sending the senior
to the line. With the game
on the line, she calmly sank
the free throw, knotting the
score for the final time at 42.
New Bremen sank the front
end of a 1-and-1 but got the
offensive rebounds twice in
the final 24 seconds to hang
on for the win.
We had our chances there
at the end but New Bremen
made the big plays when
they needed to explained
Grothouse. We put ourselves in a position to win
but werent able to pull it out.
The Cardinals are a physical
team with a 17-5 record and

we went toe-to-toe with them


for the entire game.
Jones led the Cardinals
with 11 points and Debbie
Paul was also in double figures at 10.
The Blue Jays held New
Bremen below their almost
five triples per game average,
allowing only three long balls
with their tight man-to-man
defense. The Cardinals shot
33 percent from long range
and 43 percent inside the arc.
St. Johns (13-9) was
topped by Fischbach (13
points) and Hays (10).
The Blue Jays were effective inside against the taller
Cardinals, shooting 50 percent. From beyond the arc,
St. Johns made 31 percent of
their attempts.
New Bremen won the battle of the boards grabbing 25
rebounds compared to 16 for
the Blue Jays.
Turnovers were relatively
low considering both squads
played tight man-to-man
defense.
The Cardinals committed
10 miscues compared to 12
for the Lady Jays.
We had a good season
with some ups and downs
along the way, Grothouse
added. We started slowly
and got some big wins along
the way with a 5-game winning streak. Our team lost
some games at the end of the
regular season but we get a
fresh start with tournaments
beginning next week. We will
learn from this adversity and
turn it into a positive for the
post-season.
St. Johns will play the
winner of the Cory-Rawson/
Arlington game 8 p.m. on
Feb. 20 at Bluffton High
School with a chance to move
onto the Ottawa-Glandorf
districts.

Lady Titans take WBL


BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

ELIDA

OttawaGlandorf had a hiccup last


Thursday in the Western
Buckeye League race, falling to Wapakoneta and giving the Redskins and Bath
Wildkittens an outside chance
at a title tie.
The Lady Titans dashed
those hopes to pieces
Thursday night.
The sixth-ranked (Division
II) Titans scored the first 12
points and never looked back
in a 59-32 drubbing of Elida
on the Union Bank Court of
the Elida Fieldhouse.
They arent ranked sixth
for no reason. We had three
days to prepare and watched
the tapes but their defense
really took us out of anything
we wanted to do, especially
Shyah (Wheeler); they forced
her to move off the 3-point
line but she has improved
that part of her game, Elida
head coach Chrissy Billiter
said. Where we struggle is
taking what we do in practice
to games. I tell my girls every
day at practice that were
going to State because we do
so many things well. Once
we get into a game, it seems
we forget how to play. I have
girls that will battle and fight
to the end; they are great kids.
Were still trying to re-establish a culture but it isnt for
lack of effort.
The Titans finished the
regular season 20-2, 8-1 in
the WBL.
After that loss to Wapak,
we challenged the girls to
get back to how we had been
playing, especially early on in
the season; with aggression,
sharing the ball, rebounding
and such, O-G coach Troy
Yant explained. I thought
we shared the ball very well,
especially early, and basically for three quarters did
exactly as we wanted to do.
Defensively, we executed the
game plan, especially chasing
Wheeler off the arc. We got
some of our younger girls
valuable playing time, especially after we had shortened
the rotation for the last couple
of tight games, and hope they
gain some confidence.
O-G took the lead for good
on a Kadie Hempfling (20
markers, 8 boards, 5 steals,
3 assists) putback at the 6:55
mark of the opening period and established overall
supremacy. They held the
Lady Bulldogs (5-17, 1-8
WBL) scoreless for the first
7:10, forcing 6 turnovers
(20 total) and seven missed
shots. By the time Cienna
Kuhn (6 points, 5 steals) sank
a 10-footer at 50 ticks, the
Bulldogs were down 12-2.
After O-Gs Kylie White
(15 counters, 11 rebounds, 7
thefts) hit a pair from the line
at 6.8 ticks, Elida sophomore
Wheeler (9 points, 3 steals)
hit a banking runner from the
left side to beat the horn for a
14-4 deficit.
Elida turned it over twice
in the second period but their
shooting remained cold
3-of-10 with lone Bulldog
senior Bailee Kuhn (11
markers, 6 caroms) scoring
five. On the other end, Elida
struggled to contain the O-G
offense 6-of-11 led
by six from the sophomore
Hempfling and four each by
White and Dani Ellerbrock (8
markers, 6 dimes). Thus, the
O-G lead kept steadily climbing and reached 17 twice, the
last time at 31-14 the half-

time score as Ellerbrock


hit a 15-footer with 8.1 ticks
to go.
That trend continued in the
third period as the Bulldogs
struggled to get their offense
in gear, getting only seven
shots (hitting 2) and three
free throws (hitting 1). White
(6 points) and Hempfling (5)
continued to pace a steady
Lady Titan attack 8-of16 buoyed by five Lady
Dawg miscues and six of
their own offensive rebounds.
When Mackenzie Meyer hit a
transition layin (feed by Lexi
Schroeder) a tick before the
horn, the visitor lead reached
49-19.
O-Gs biggest margin was
33 54-21 on a Hempfling
hoop-and-harm early in the
fourth before Coach Yant
took his starters out, as did
Billiter, and the Titans had
10 of their 16 turnovers down
the stretch.
Its so awesome to win
the WBL, especially after last
week. We came together as a
team and decided to get back
to how wed been playing,
White explained. We had
to be focused on this game
because you start thinking
about the tournament and the
big picture, especially after
last year (Division III State
runners-up). Its too late to
let things come apart, so we
came together to win this
game and then focus on the
tournament.
Ottawa-Glandorf shot a
smooth 22-of-45 from the
field (2-of-13 downtown) for
48.9 percent and 13-of-20 at
the line (65%); snapped up
34 caroms (16 offensive); and
added a mere eight fouls.
Elida downed 13-of-38
shots (2-of-10 beyond the
arc) for 34.2 percent and 4-of9 singles (44.4%); grabbed
18 off the glass (8 offensive);
and added 13 fouls..
O-G won the junior varsity
contest 41-33.
Kasey Ellerbrock paced
the victors with 16.
Jasmine Pinn topped the
Lady Dawgs with 15.
Elida commences the
Division II Sectional tournament trail 6:15 p.m. Tuesday
at Leipsic versus Bryan. Topseeded O-G waits the winner
at 6:15 p.m. Feb. 20.

They are tough to guard in a 1-2-2 as they put Clement


in one corner and McCluer in the other and you still have to
worry about the bigs inside. They are just a tough matchup for
us, especially when they are hitting from the outside.
While Blufftons defense had trouble covering the Bulldog
shooters, the Pirates found an uncontested shot hard to come
by.
Columbus Grove played an aggressive matchup zone using
their quickness to get out on shooters. Their fullcourt pressure
was effective as well as the Bulldogs came up with a number of
steals that led to baskets on the other end of the floor for Grove.
They contested every shot. Anytime we got a shot they
contested it, Garmatter said. They are a very good team.
They are not sixth in the state by being bad. I think their press
made us tired. They are so active and they can extend it so far
because they have the big girls underneath. If you get past the
initial guard, they still have those big girls inside.
The Pirates best scoring quarter was the second when they
scored 13 points after putting up eight points in the first quarter. Bluffton ended the first half with a 6-0 run that pulled them
within 11 points of Grove at halftime. However, the Pirates
were unable to get the offense going in the second half as they
scored just six points, one in the fourth quarter. Columbus
Grove scored 18 points in the second half, but only four in the
fourth quarter as with a big lead they decided to run time off
the clock.
They can score the basketball. We knew we had to get it
done on the defensive end, Schroeder said. We held them
to 27 points. We didnt exactly play lights out offensively, we
didnt shoot great, but we got after it on defense and thats why
we came out on top tonight.

Unconditional Love

To love someone unconditionally means that ones love is absolute and is


without limits. Human emotions are such that we usually distance ourselves
from those with unpleasant attitudes or behaviors, so at times loving someone regardless of their actions or feelings toward us is extremely difficult. An
example of this could be a married couple - they may be so much in love on
their wedding day, but later get a divorce because they no longer care for each
other. Unconditional love is a blessing from our Heavenly Father and involves
forgiveness, understanding, wisdom, and praying for our loved ones. A parents love for their children, or a childs love for their parents can be unconditional, and Gods love for His chosen people is also unconditional. The Bible
tells us that there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us
from the love of God, which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.
Live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a
fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
N.I.V. Ephesians 5:2

Our local churches invite you to join them for their activities and services.

Ruen-Part III
Yours, mine and ours

That

by EVELYN MARTIN
On 25 June 1880, the
Monterey Township, Putnam
County census enumerator,
Charles Wannemacher came
to dwelling number 188 on
his list. He had started on 1
June at the dwelling of John
Kalt just west of Ottoville,
now he was almost finished
. All he had left were the
dwellings in Section 19. As
he turned his team of horses
down the lane he noticed several children running about.
Reaching the house Charles
saw a bearded man come out
the door, and recognizing
William Ruen he introduced
himself and inquired of the
names and ages of everyone
in the household. Charles
Wannamacher wrote down
the names: William Ruhen
age 56, his wife Sybila , age
37, sons (children of William
and Friederika) Antony, 13,
William, 11, Henry, 9 and (the

Frank,1 Elisabeth Boehm,
13, step-daughter, Magdelina
Fritsche, 9, step-daughter,
George Fritsche, 7, stepson, and Barbara Fritsche 5,
step-daughter.
Four years before the
recently widowed William
Ruen Sr. had married Sybille
(Frst/Fuerst)
(Boehm)
Fritsche, widow of George
Fritsche, mother of four children, on 8 August 1876 in

2 October 1954 in Lima at
76 years old. Both Frank and

1961 in Glandorf at 76 years
old. Addie and Joseph

Polio and the March of Dimes

Few diseases frightened parents more in the first 6


decades of the 1900s than polio. It usually struck in the hot
summer months, attacking the nervous system and causing
paralysis. No one understood how or why people got it, but
children were the most frequently affected. Early treatments
were limited to quarantines and the infamous iron lung, a
metal coffin-like contraption that aided respiration.
At its peak in the 1940s and 1950s, polio would paralyze
or kill over half a million people worldwide every year.
Delphos was not immune to this dreaded disease and was
especially hard-hit in 1948 and 1949. Among the numerous
cases, a 38-year-old businessman left a wife and 5 children
when he died from polio. A very young boy became the second fatality. Both died within days of being stricken. Another
victim was luckier. After being stricken, Bob Bonifas spent
several weeks at St. Ritas and 3 month at Warm Springs,
Georgia for treatment. He returned home with a brace on
his left leg and using crutches, but he was deemed 100%
functional.
During those years local theories abounded. Dr. J.N.
Sadler, city health officer, said people should keep garbage
cans covered, be careful what they ate, and if they desired to
go swimming, not to stay in the water too long. Many people
felt that eating home-grown vegetables from canal-watered
gardens was causing the polio. Spraying with DDT was
thought to be a preventative. On August 18, 1948, it was
announced the swimming pool would close for the rest of the
summer. Four local doctors recommended closing the Allen
County Fair (Delphos Street Fair) because of the large number of people, but in a close vote, fair board members voted
to hold the fair anyway.
Back in 1938, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a polio
victim himself, had helped found the March of Dimes to
raise money for the rehabilitation of polio victims and to
find a vaccine to prevent the disease. This was the first
national fund-raising event with grassroots support. Like
most communities, Delphos supported this endeavor wholeheartedly. Cards with slots for dimes were sent home with
every school child. Iron-lung containers were put in all
businesses encouraging customers to contribute. One year
there was a Midwestern Hayride Show and another year
it was a donkey basketball game. Various organizations,
including the Jaycees, held fund-raisers, but the main event
each year was the Mothers March on Polio. On a designated
night, mothers would canvass the neighborhoods, stopping at
houses that had their porch light on to indicate they wanted
to make a contribution. Not surprisingly, Bob Bonifas was
the chairman of the Delphos March of Dimes campaign for
several years. He was showing his appreciation to the March
of Dimes which covered all expenses incurred when he had
polio as it did for all victims.
The efforts of millions of people and their dimes paid
off. In 1955, Dr. Jonas Salk became a national hero when he
developed the first safe and effective polio vaccine. Supplies
were limited, but that same year, letters were sent home with
all 1st and 2nd graders in Delphos in an effort to get them
inoculated. With the availability of more vaccine, in April of
1957 hundreds of public and parochial students received the
first of 3 shots at a clinic set up at St. Johns School Little
Theater. The other 2 would follow.
Nationally, new polio cases dropped from 45,000 in 1955

to under 6,000 in 1957, the first year after the vaccine was
widely available. In 1962, an oral vaccine developed by Dr.
Albert Sabin became available. It was easier to administer
and much cheaper, which greatly facilitated distribution of
the polio vaccine, and consequently the number of cases
dropped to 910. Three years later, it was 61 and since 1979,
there have been no new cases in the USA.
Polio is now pretty much history, but there are still
reminders of the dreaded disease such as the crutches and
leg braces shown in the picture that belonged to Bob Bonifas.

display.

Staying in On the
the lines
Other Hand
Ah. What is better than a fresh box of crayons? Well, how about adult coloring books!
WOW! How has no one come up with this
before?
Like our younger counterparts, we need a
break, too. Perhaps even more so.
2015 was the year of the adult coloring book.
At the start of the year, adult coloring books
were a niche item, but by December, bookstores
around the country had cleared shelf space for
the hundreds of different coloring books publishers were churning out.
The top 10 best-selling titles sold at least 1.5
million copies, according to Publishers Weekly.
Adult coloring books are flying off the
shelves along with markers, colored pencils,
and yes, those fresh boxes of crayons.
I know a lot of people who share my fondness of coloring. According to therapists, coloring can lift the mood, reduce anxiety and
relieve stress. Who couldnt use a little of that
now and then? Its also refreshing to pick up a
marker, colored pencil or crayon instead of a
stylus, tablet or phone. So now my head is bent
in concentration as I attempt to stay in the lines
and then I have to find just the right blue to
finish this page.
So, yes, now you can find a coloring book
prominently displayed in my kitchen along
with a pack of colored pencils, markers and a
(almost) brand new box of crayons. They are
sitting right beside the puzzles books Santa was

kind enough to place in my stocking because


Im a good girl.
Along with new or renewed trends come the
jokes and comics, etc. The latest on Facebook
is set forward in time to a few decades from
now. A little boy is asking his grandfather how
Donald Trump got elected. The grandfather
replies, Well, that was the year adult coloring
books were all the rage and we were distracted.
Just so you know, that coloring book will
not keep me from the polls and I will in no
way, shape or form be responsible for that man
taking office in the White House. I do think he
could use a coloring session or two; hes excitable and then says silly things were all just
supposed to forget we heard.
Stay in the lines, Trump!
*******
Just so you know, I got through two big
stacks of papers on my desk this week. Theres
a whole corner just waiting for something else
to fill it. Now I just have two ginormous filing
cabinet drawers and three regular ones.
Where does all this stuff come from? It starts
out a little folder here a few papers there and all
of a sudden I cant hardly close the drawer and
I have to start a new pile for things.
My life resolution is to stop saving so much
useless paper! Recycle, recycle, recycle! Turn
that paper into an adult coloring book.

Punt, pass and chick


There was a football game last weekend. In preparation for this pro punt n
pass, people paraded through the checkout lines with chips, Buds, dips and
cheez foods in spray cans, glass jars
and squeeze tubes.
We celebrated our own salsified and
dipped Super Bowl party, then watched
Goosebumps. On Monday morning,
I waited for someone to start talking
about the game around the coffeemaker
so I could ask, Was there a game? but
no one mentioned it. I did hear a few
chats about the halftime show, which Ill
probably watch on YouTube sometime.
Instead of watching pro football,
we watched a chicken. Two prominent
members of Pandora society left home
for the weekend and asked My Steven
to take care of a member of their flock.
The bird had recently suffered severe
injuries inflicted by a neighbor dog and
needed someone familiar with chickens
to hen sit.
When Steve called me at work on
Thursday, he said something like, Dont
get excited when you get home, but
Like most people, I imagine, I got excited, and not in a good way. Between a
sea of soft winter mud outside and a
preschool pig wanting what she wants
and wanting it when she wants it, we
have our hands full of mop handles and
feed buckets already. Relief settled when
Steve said we were just watching a bandaged chicken for two days.
Wait a minutea bandaged chicken? How do you change bandages on a
chicken, I wondered. None of the ladies
who currently perch in our coop, peer
in the front window during lunch and
run down the driveway to greet us will

the only place for animals to get warm, so all


the petsdogs, cats and other small animals,
mice, rats and bugs lived in the roof straw.
When it rained it became slippery and
sometimes the animals would slip and fall off
the roof. Hence the saying: Its raining cats
and dogs.
There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem
in the bedroom where bugs and other things
could really mess up your nice clean bed. So,
they found if they made beds with big posts
and hung a sheet over the top, it addressed
that problem.
Hence those beautiful big four poster beds
with canopies.
The floors in those days were dirt. Only the
wealthy had something other than dirt floors.
Hence the saying dirt poor.
The wealthy also had slat floors which
would get slippery in the winter when wet. So
they spread thresh on the floor to help keep
their footing. As the winter wore on they kept
adding more thresh until when you opened the
door it would all start slipping outside.
A piece of wood was placed at the entry
way, hence a thresh hold.
Families of that era cooked in the kitchen
with a big kettle that always hung over the
fire. Every day they lit the fire and added
things to the pot. They mostly ate vegetables

post annual water quality reports online


in one, easy to find place, so the public
has access to information about whats
going on with their water.
And as we work to respond to the
immediate needs in Sebring and Flint,
we must also remember that this problem stretches far beyond just our water
systems. Too many of our children in
cities throughout the state are exposed
to lead through paint in older homes and
even through the dirt in their backyards.
An investigation last fall found that
more than 40,000 children in Cuyahoga
County, Ohio have tested positive for
lead poisoning over the past 10 years.
Nationwide, the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention estimate that at
least four million American households
with children are being exposed to high
levels of lead.
Its not enough to just react to the
immediate crisis at hand once children have been exposed, the effects
cant be erased. We need a proactive
strategy to protect families from being
exposed to lead in the first place. This
bill is just one piece of that puzzle. We
are in this fight for the long haul, and
we will keep fighting to protect Ohio
families from lead.

The water crisis in Flint, Michigan,


is attracting a lot of attention lately
and rightfully so. But while we work
to help the people of Flint, we must
also remember that Flint is not the only
town where families face exposure to
dangerous levels of lead.
Right here in Ohio, in the Village
of Sebring, we know there are troubling amounts of lead in the water. No
parent should have to worry that the
water coming out of their faucets might
be poisoning their children. Pregnant
women shouldnt have to fear their tap
water.
Thats why my office is drafting
legislation to help. Just like in Flint,
families in Sebring were left in the
dark about the presence of lead in their
water. For months, local officials failed
to notify residents about the lead
and the Ohio Environmental Protection
Agency failed to step in. Our bill
will require the federal Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) to notify the
public directly if theres a danger from
lead in the water system, if the state
fails to do so within 15 days.

No more arguing about whose


responsibility it is, while families continue drinking water that we know isnt
safe. No more finger pointing after the
fact. Our bill will lay down a marker
that when there is a problem with the
water, people have a right to know
and if the state fails, its the EPAs job
to make sure they do.
Improving notification is a critical
first step, but it isnt enough. Our
legislation would require communities whose water is contaminated to
put a plan in place to clean up their
water supply within six months. Right
now, cities can take up to 18 months.
Imagine getting a notice that your
water isnt safe, but being told you
have to wait up to a year and a half
before there is even a plan in place to
fix it. Thats unacceptable.
And in the meantime, families need
to know there are resources available
to them while their water is being
cleaned upwhether its bringing in
bottled water, providing special filters,
or whatever may be needed. Our legislation will make sure there is a clear
plan in place to deliver safe, clean
water for families.
Finally, we will require the EPA to

They were laid out on the kitchen table for

grave. In reopening these coffins, one out of
25 coffins were found to have scratch marks
on the inside and they realized they had been
burying people alive.
So they thought they would tie a string
on their wrist and lead it through the coffin
and up through the ground and tie it to a bell.
Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night to listen for the bell. Hence they
were on the graveyard shift.
Thats also where we got the terms saved
by the bell and he was a dead ringer.
I wonder what, if any, terms used today
will survive into the 22nd century when robots
will rule our lives.
Will people laugh about our use of
Smartphones, daily mail delivery, travel by
cars and airplanes, our fascination with pizza
and fast foods, how we actually attended
sporting events, our fear of being diagnosed
with cancer, obesity and staying physically fit
and how we obsessed about money.

AT YOUR CONVENIENCE!!
Reading the newspaper keeps you
informed and in tune with whats
happening now, whether its across the
globe or in your own backyard!

People Make
the Difference

and didnt get much meat. They would eat the


stew for dinner leaving leftovers in the pot
to get cold overnight and then start over the
next day.
Sometimes the stew had food in it that had
been there for several weeks. Hence the rhyme
peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas
porridge in the pot nine days old.
Sometimes they could obtain pork and
would feel really special when that happened.
When company came over, they would bring
out some bacon and hang it to show it off. It
was a sign of wealth and that a man could
really bring home the bacon.
They would cut off a little to share with
guests and would all sit around and chew the
fat. Could life be any better?
Those with money had plates made of
pewter. Food with a high acid content caused
some of the lead to leach onto the food. This
happened most often with tomatoes, so they
stopped eating tomatoesfor 400 years!
Bread was divided according to status.
Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the
family got the middle, and guests got the top,
or the upper crust.
Lead cups were used to drink ale or whiskey. The combination would sometimes knock
them out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead
and prepare them for burial.

Protecting Ohioans from lead poisoning

sit still for a health inspection let alone


detailed wound care.
But this little lady took her treatment
with dignity. We hear that she would
have none of it after the canine attack,
but once she figured out that her humans
meant no harm, she learned to sit on a
wooden perch as her extensive injuries
were dressed with gauze and second
skin. While I smoothed her reptilian-like
legs and toes, Steven removed the old
bandages from her back and cleaned the
featherless skin. The dogs that live with
us watched for a minute, got bored and
wandered off to play with the porcine
toddler.
We can now say we have dressed a
chicken, then gave her a snack before
tucking her in for the night.
Good game.

Byron McNutt

Remembering life in the 1500s


Have you ever wondered how we came up
with the terms dirt poor, its raining cats
and dogs, dont throw the baby out with the
bath water, thresh hold, bringing home
the bacon, the graveyard shift, or how the
custom of holding a wake got started?
An old friend Kevin Pappert, who did some
consulting work for our newspaper group
back in the 1990s, came across the following
historical information that tells us about Life
in the 1500s. Its interesting reading, even
if Snoops.com says this essay is someones
idea of an amusing leg-pull and lacks accuracy.
Back in those days, most people got married in June because they took their yearly
bath in May, and were still smelling pretty
good by June. However, they were starting to
smell, so brides carried a bouquet of flowers
to hide the body odor.
Baths equaled a big tub filled with hot
water. The man of the house had the privilege
of the nice clean water, then all the other sons
and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies.
By then the water was so dirty you could
actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying: Dont throw the baby out with the bath
water.
Houses had thatched roofs. Thick straw,
piled high, with no wood underneath. It was

Burglaries
(Continued from page 3A)
Burglaries are an invasion of privacy.
Someone committing nearly a dozen crimes in a
3-month period, we are glad to get them off the
streets and from victimizing anyone else, said
Columbus Police Chief Kimberley Jacobs.
This investigation is a great example of
agencies working together to bring justice for
victims, said Franklin County Sheriff Zach
Scott. We will continue to collaborate and work
closely with local and state authorities to protect
Franklin County residents from crimes of theft
and burglary.
The case is still under investigation. Milton
and others could face additional charges.
The Central Ohio Retail Crime and
Counterfeit Checks Task Force, which is part of

the Ohio Attorney Generals Organized Crime


Investigations Commission (OOCIC), was
formed to investigate organized retail crime,
counterfeit check schemes, and associated
crimes. The task force is made up of authorities
with the Columbus Police Department, Franklin
County Sheriffs Office, and several cooperating agencies, including the Delaware County
Sheriffs Office which assisted with this case.
Established in 1986, the OOCIC assists local
law enforcement agencies in combating organized crime and corrupt activities. The commission is composed of members of the law enforcement community and is chaired by the Ohio
Attorney General. In 2015, authorities working in
OOCIC task forces across the state seized more
than $28.5 million worth of drugs and more than
$4.4 million in U.S. currency.

Washington, D.C., and Chicago.
The only two Broadway headliners to win Tony
Awards for playing characters of the opposite sex
are Mary Martin in Peter Pan (1955); and Harvey

The National Debt has continued to increase
an average of $2.40 billion per day since Sept. 30,
2012.

Newest Trustee Anita Lindeman


announced Community Health Professionals
would like to host an Easter activity at the
library. Lindeman said. the event would
include an egg hunt, donuts and juice, a
visit from the Easter Bunny and more. The
activity will be held from 9-11 a.m. March
27 at the library.
Lindeman was also sworn in by Rist at
the beginning of the meeting.
Fiscal Officer Janet Bonifas recommended trustees investigate financial safeguards
through the bank holding the librarys
accounts.
Im sure our bank has a number of
options and theyre usually very affordable, Bonifas said. We are seeing more
and more problems with the wrong people
getting a hold of other peoples money and
we just need to take the necessary steps to
protect ourselves as best we can.

COLUMBUS - State Senator Cliff


Hite (R-Findlay) has announced the Ohio
Legislative Service Commission is accepting applications for its prestigious 13-month
Legislative and Telecommunications
Fellowship programs. The Commission will
hire 24 fellows to work with members of the
Ohio General Assembly during 2017.
Legislative fellows are presented with
a truly unique opportunity to work side
by side with legislators, policymakers and
other influential state leaders, said Hite.
This is an invaluable experience and for
many fellows it opens the door for lifelong
careers in public service or builds a skill set
to succeed in any field in the future.
LSC fellows are immersed in the Ohio
legislative process by assisting members of
the Ohio General Assembly with constituent
work, writing press releases and speeches,
assisting in policy research, attending meetings and performing administrative duties.
Telecommunications fellows assist in televising House and Senate proceedings and
in preparing educational video productions
about the General Assembly and the legislative process.
Fellows receive full state of Ohio
employee benefits and are paid $31,200 per
year, with the opportunity to earn a $2,000
bonus based on length of service in the
program. Legislative fellowship application
materials must be postmarked by April 1,
2016 to be considered for the program. The
application deadline for the telecommunications applicants is April 30, 2016.
All applicants must have graduated from
a four-year college degree program by the
December start date. Persons holding graduate or professional degrees may apply. The
legislative fellowship program is open to
graduates of all major fields of study who
have a genuine interest in learning about
state government, and no political experience is required. The two telecommunications fellows must have majored or minored
in a telecommunications-related field of
study or have comparable experience.
For more information or for an application and instructions, please visit: Ohio

Get a head-start on tax season


The dawn of a new calendar year
often marks the end of the sometimes
hectic holiday season. This time of year
marks a return to normalcy for many
families, as the kids go back to school
and parents return to work.
While the deadline to file returns may
be several months away, getting a headstart allows men and women the chance
to organize their tax documents so they
arent racing against a deadline come
April. The following are a handful of
ways to start preparing for your returns
now.
Find last years return. You will need
information from last years return in
order to file this year, so find last years
return and print it out if you plan to hire
a professional to work on your return.
Gather dependents information.
While you might know your own Social
Security number by heart, if you have
dependents, youre going to need their
information as well. New parents or
adults who started serving as their
elderly parents primary caretakers over
the last year will need their kids and
their folks social security numbers. If
you do not have these numbers upon
filing, your return will likely be delayed
and you might even be denied potentially substantial tax credits.
Gather your year-end financial statements. If you spent the last year investing, then you will have to pay taxes on
any interest earned. Interest earned on
the majority of savings accounts is also
taxable, so gather all of your year-end
financial statements from your assorted
accounts in one place. Doing so will
make filing your return, whether you do
it yourself or work with a professional,
go more quickly.
Speak with your mortgage lender.
Homeowners should receive forms
documenting their mortgage interest
payments for the last year, as the money
Courstesy invest.gov
A few people may stumble
into financial security. But for
most people, the only way to
attain financial security is to
save and invest over a long
period of time. You just need
to have your money work for
you. Thats investing.
There are two ways your
money can work for you:
Your money earns money.
Someone pays you to use your
money for a period of time.
You then get your money back
plus interest. Or, if you buy
stock in a company that pays

is tax deductible. If these forms are not
received in a timely manner, speak with
your lender. You might even be able
to download them from your lenders
secure website.
Make a list of your charitable contributions. Charitable contributions, no
matter how small, are tax deductible.
While its easiest to maintain a list of
all charitable donations you make as the
year goes on, if you have not done that,
then you can make one now. Look for
receipts of all contributions, contacting

any charities you donated to if you misplaced any receipts.


Book an appointment with your tax
preparation specialist now. As April 15
draws closer, tax preparers schedules
get busier and busier. The earlier you
book your appointment, the more likely
you are to get a favorable time for that
meeting. In addition, if you have gathered all of the information you need
by early February, then booking your
appointment early means you can file
earlier and receive any return you might
be eligible for that much quicker.

Why invest in the market?

dividends to shareholders,
the company pays you a portion of its earnings on a regular basis. Now your money is
making an income.
You buy something with
your money that could increase
in value. You become an owner
of something that you hope
increases in value over time.
When you need your money
back, you sell it, hoping someone else will pay you more
for it.
Compound interest is a key
aspect of investing. With compound interest, you earn interest on the money you save

and on the interest that money


earns. Over time, even a small
amount of savings can add up
to big money and help you
achieve your financial goals.
Sweet: If you buy a $1
candy bar every day, it adds up
to $365 a year. Put that $365
into an investment that earns
5% a year, and it would grow
to $465.84 by the end of five
years. By the end of 30 years,
you would have $1,577.50.
Thats the power of compounding.
All investments involve
some degree of risk. If you
intend to purchase securities

such as stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, its important that you


understand before you invest
that you could lose some or all
of your money.
Unlike deposits at FDICinsured banks and NCUAinsured credit unions, the
money you invest in securities is not federally insured.
You could lose your principal,
which is the amount youve
invested. Thats true even if
you purchase the securities
through a bank.
The reward for taking on
risk is the potential for a greater investment return. If you
have a financial goal with a
long-term horizon, you may
make more money by carefully
investing in higher-risk assets,

Identity theft is a pervasive problem. According


to figures from the Bureau
of Justice Statistics, an estimated 17.6 million people,
or about 7 percent of U.S.
residents age 16 or older,
were victims of at least one
incident of identity theft in
2014. Identity theft is not
just a problem within U.S.
borders, either. Each month,
Equifax and TransUnion
credit bureaus report that
more than 1,800 identity
theft complaints are lodged
by Canadian residents.
Victims may be subjected to various types of
identity theft. Attempted
misuse of an existing
account is the prime complaint. This account can be
a credit card, bank account
or phone or utility account.
No matter the type of fraud
perpetrated, many identity
theft victims endure a direct
financial loss as a result.
Sometimes individuals
do not find out theyve been
the victim of identity theft
until they are notified by a
financial institution or
even after filing their taxes when money already
has been lost. People may
invest in expensive services to protect their identities, but Consumer Reports
notes this tactic is not
always necessary. There
are other, less expensive
ways for men and women

Money rules you can break


For most people, following basic money
rules makes sense. But like everything else
in life, there are situations when following
tried-and-true advice might not work. Our
professionals weigh in on when to consider
the exceptions.

Taxed Equally.

Rule No. 2: Save up to 10% of your

MKT-6346C-A-A8 EXP 31 DEC 2013

Rule No. 1: Pay off debt and build an


emergency fund before saving for retirement.
Saving enough money to pay three to
six months of living expenses will lessen
the chances youll have to sell assets or go
into debt in case of an unexpected big-ticket
expense or job loss. Building this emergency
fund in something safe and liquid, such as
a savings account should be a top priority,
along with paying down any high-interest
consumer debt.
When to break it: If your debt is of
the low-rate, tax-reducing variety, such as a
mortgage or student loans, and your retirement plan at work offers a match, you might
be better off contributing enough to receive
the full company match before focusing on
building your emergency fund and eliminating debt.
Remember that contributions to a traditional employer-sponsored retirement
account, such as a 401(k) may reduce your
tax bill. Add the money from your employer
match, and youve got a hard-to-beat combination. If you dont participate in these plans,
you could be missing out on valuable benefits
and tax savings.

a high school education, according to the U.S.


Census Bureau. As a result, most financial
planners agree that helping your child get a
college education is important.
When to break it: If helping pay for
your childs four-year college degree places
an extreme burden on your finances, you
should consider other, more affordable ways
to accomplish this goal.
The return depends on the price you pay
and where that money comes from. The nonprofit research group Project on Student Debt
reports two-thirds of college seniors who
graduated in 2011 had student loan debt, with
an average of $26,600 per borrower.
To avoid overpaying for a diploma, look
for cost-effective ways to get an education,
such as spending the first two years at a community college, then transferring to a fouryear college.
Rule No. 4: Buy a house if it costs 2.5
times your annual income or less.
This is a reasonable guide when determining whether you can afford to buy a home.
When to break it: If it doesnt suit your
circumstances, disregard this guideline.
What really matters is whether you can
afford the monthly payment, factoring in
taxes, insurance, maintenance, current mortgage rates and the size of your down payment. Plus, consider how long youll live in
the house. If you plan to move in a few years,
renting may be the better decision.
Rule No. 5: When you retire, consider
a withdrawal of 4% of your portfolio, then
adjust every year for inflation.
Historically speaking, the so-called 4%
rule calls for a retiree to make annual inflation-adjusted withdrawals and be reasonably
sure the portfolio will last 30 years. For most
retirees, its a fine starting point to determine
how much they can spend.
When to break it: Your plan for retirement is not a smooth glide path.
Retirees may prefer withdrawing more
in good times and cutting back when times
get tough, or varying distributions based on
their investment results. Also, adjustments
should be made according to other sources of
income. For example, some retirees may wish
to withdraw more at first and delay taking
Social Security, but then withdraw less once
the Social Security benefit kicks in.

Having More Retirement


Accounts If Not the Same As

When it comes to the number of retirement accounts you have, the saying more is better is
not necessarily true. In fact, if you hold multiple
accounts with various brokers, it can be difficult
to keep track of your investments and to see if

Budget is a four-letter word Create a Spending Plan You Can Live With

By: Kathryn Marion


Budget is a four-letter
word when it comes to your
personal finances, but face it-if you dont decide ahead of
time whats most important to
you, its easier than pie to slip
into that nearly-impossible-tobreak habit of living bigger
than your paycheck. Use these
tips to get started on creating a
roadmap toward your financial
success!
Before you can set a budget, or spending plan, that you
can live with, you need to look
at where youre starting. Are
you already out in the real
world living on your own, or
are you still living at home or
on campus? If youre already
living on your own, you have a
headstart in the sense that you
know what the costs for a variety of things are. On the other
hand, if you realize that youre
already living in a way that will
sabotage your financial future,
its going to be rough getting
things back on track. But it can
be done.
Before you start developing your spending plan, youll
need to track your current
spending patterns. For an entire
monthits a long time, but
well worth itcarry a small
notebook with you and record
every penny you spend (yes,
every penny!). Write down
what you spent money on, how
you paid for it (cash, credit
card, check), and assign it to a
category.
Each persons spending
categories will vary a bit, but
include things like home (rent,
electricity, water, renters insurance), auto (loan payment, gas,
insurance, maintenance, personal property tax), food (for
at home, plus another category
for eating out), grocery items,
clothing, entertainment (movies, magazine subscriptions),
health (doctor bills or copays,
prescriptions, insurance premiums, contact lens supplies),
and miscellaneous (haircuts,
impulse buys). If youre not
out on your own yet, you wont
have as many categories as
someone who is, but its still
an extremely valuable exercise.
At the end of the month,
you will probably be astonished at what you spent your
hard-earned money on. Most
people are. Those little purchases, usually made with
spare change, add up to much
more than you could ever have
imagined. How many times did

you stop at Starbucks? In my


opinion, the two most dangerous words in finances are just
and only. It only cost twofifty. Its just four bucks. Add
a bunch of those together over
the course of a month, or year,
and they add up to a big bite
out of your budget.
After you pick your jaw up
off the floor, youll be ready
to move on to the next step
and begin developing a reasonable spending plan that will
move you toward your financial goals.
Youre Ready - Develop
Your Spending Plan
-- Get out some paper, or
use a spreadsheet, and label
three columns: Knowns,
Needs, and Wants.
-- In the Knowns column,
record all expenses you know
you will be incurring and
which have a set dollar amount
each month, such as rent, car
and student loan payments,
insurance, basic phone charges
(just the cost of having the line,
not any long distance calls you
might make), Internet access
(like AOL or a DSL line), etc.
Enter an amount equal to 10%
of your takehome pay under
Savingsthis should not be
an optional item, but a required
one.
-- In the Needs column,
record all the things you need
but which dont have predetermined dollar amounts: food,
groceries, utilities, basic business wardrobe items, long distance phone calls, commuting
expenses (gasoline and car
maintenance, train fare, car
pool fees), basic furniture and

(Continued from page 2)

household items (remember:


basic, not luxury), and so on.
-- Guess what each item
might cost per month. If youre
not very accurate with your
estimating, guess on the high
side so you wont end up with
an unpleasant surprise after the
very first month on your budget. If youve never lived on
your own and cant even make
an educated guess, ask friends
or your parents what a reasonable figure would be.
-- In the Wants column,
enter things you would like to
have: going to the movies once
a week or buying DVDs; nonbusiness (play) clothes; vacations; cigarettes (nope, theyre
not needs!); a new stereo or tv;
tennis lessons; a downpayment
on a condo or house of your
own some day - whatever they
may be.
-- Add up each of the three
columns. Then check all your
expense numbers, make sure
every item is in the proper
column, and do the math again.
-- If your Knowns are more
than your monthly take-home
pay (gulp) youve got some
major league lifestyle changes
to make. Double-check your
amounts and be sure each item
is in the proper column. Once
youre satisfied that your numbers are right, start at the top
of the column and figure out
where you can start cutting
back. Home expenses usually
make up the biggest category.
Maybe taking in a roommate
or even moving back home
will do the trick. Is your car
payment outrageous? Itll hurt,
but consider getting rid of that
shiny new car (and the loan

that goes with it) and take the


bus or get a smaller, basic,
used car, or even a motorcycle.
Its better to take a loss on the
new car now than let it drag
you down for years to come,
keeping you from your dreams.
Dipping into, or eliminating,
Savings is not an option!
-- If your take-home pay
covers your Knowns but not
quite all of your Needs, youll
need to take a closer look at
those items you listed as needs.
Do you really need call waiting on your home phone? Do
you really need a home phone
at all? Maybe just a cell phone
will cover you. Are you spending more than about $50 a
week on food and groceries? Is
DSL a requirement, or can you
deal with a dial-up connection,
or (even cheaper) can you stop
at the library after work to do
your surfing? Remember-keep
your fingers out of that Savings
account!
-- If youve got your
Knowns and Needs well covered and have some money left
over, you can take another look
at your Wants list and prioritize
it. Rearrange the list with the
most desirable item at the top
and those least important to you
at the bottom. Then you can
start spending that extra money
on the items at the top of the
list and work your way down
until it runs out. Do I need to
say it again? Savings stay put!
Dont end up like most people,
with no clue why they have no
money left over at the end of
the month and no idea how to
get ahead. With your spending
plan as your road map, you can
travel through your financial
life with confidence and no
regrets along the way.

such as stocks or bonds. On the other hand, investing solely in


cash investments may be appropriate for short-term financial
goals. Make a Plan
The key to financial security is to have a financial plan. Youll
first need to figure out where youre starting from for example,
how much you owe and how much money have you saved. Then
set your goals. Do you want a car, a college education for your
children, or a comfortable retirement? Once you know what you
want, when you want it, and how much it costs, you can figure out
how much youll need to save.
Save and Invest for the Long Term
Perhaps the best protection against risk is time. On any given
day the stock market can go up or down. Sometimes a market
downturn can last for months or more. But over the years, investors who adopt a buy and hold approach to investing tend to
come out ahead of those who try to time the market.
Investigate Before You Invest
Another way to reduce risk is to do your homework before you
part with your money.
Call your state securities regulator to check up on the back-

ground of any person or company that youre considering doing


business with.
Find out as much as you can about any company before you
invest in it. Companies that issue stock have to give important
information to investors in a document called a prospectus and
by law that information is supposed to be truthful. Always read
the prospectus.
Beware of get rich quick schemes. If someone offers you an
especially high rate of return on an investment or pressures you to
invest before youve had time to investigate, its probably a scam.

(StatePoint) Sixty-four percent of American adults have a


smartphone, according to Pew
Research Center, and that number is growing. Savvy smartphone users are doing a lot
more with their devices than
selfies. At the forefront of a
smartphones capabilities is
on-the-go money management,
which personal finance experts
say can be a key tool to helping
you achieve your money goals.
Technology advances are
giving banks an opportunity
to further enhance their customers ability to manage their
money.
Want to get a better handle
on your money? Here are some
tips for making your smartphone your own personal banker:
Go mobile: You may have
used your phone to log into
your account via your banks
website. Check your banks
mobile application offerings
and download its mobile app
instead. Using an app designed
for device readability will
make transactions easier and
more efficient. When downloading an app to your smartphone, make sure youre using
a trusted source. Make sure
you download directly from
your phones app store or your
banks website.
Review functionality:
Mobile applications are always
evolving and improving.
Review your banks app functionality periodically to ensure
youre up-to-date. For example,
Wells Fargo just added several new features to its already
robust mobile banking suite.

alerts: Preset limits for transactions and purchases, so you can


be immediately notified when
those limits have been exceeded. This will help you track
your spending and prevent you
from breaking your budget.
You may also wish to sign up
for other notifications, such as
when your card is declined,
your balance drops below a certain threshold or a direct deposit
posts to your account.
Get reminded: Make late
fees a thing of the past. Set up
calendar reminders for credit
card payments, mortgages
and other bill due dates. Your
banks app may also have a
built-in reminder feature to help

Todays young professionals hear about


the importance of saving
for retirement seemingly
from the moment they
are hired. In addition to
discussions with human
resources
personnel
about employer-sponsored retirement plans,
young
professionals
are learning about the
importance of saving for
retirement thanks to the
abundance of financialplanning advertisements
on television, the radio
and the Internet.
Older workers may
not have been so lucky, and many may find themselves trying to play catch up as retirement age draws
closer. While its important to begin saving for retirement as early as possible, late bloomers whose retirement dates are nearing can still take steps to secure
their financial futures.
Pay down debts. Eliminating debt is good for men
and women of all ages, but especially so for those
nearing retirement. Substantial debt may delay your
retirement and can greatly reduce your quality of life
during retirement. If you still have substantial debt,
eliminate that debt before you start saving additional
money for retirement. Once your debt slate has been
wiped clean, you can then increase your retirement
contributions.
Eliminate unnecessary expenses. If your retirement savings are low (many financial advisors now
advise men and women that they will need at least
60 percent of their pre-retirement income each year
they are retired), start cutting back on unnecessary
expenses and reallocate that money toward retirement
saving. Cutting out luxury items, such as vacations to
exotic locales or country club memberships, is one
way to save money. But dont overlook the simpler
ways to save, such as canceling your cable subscription or dining at home more often.
Downsize your home. Many empty nesters downsize their homes as retirement nears, and doing so can
help you save a substantial amount of money. If the
kids no longer live at home or if you simply have more
space than you will need after retirement, downsize
to a smaller, less expensive home. Monitor the real
estate market before you decide to downsize so you
can be sure to get the best deal on your current home.
Downsizing saves on monthly utility bills, property
taxes and a host of additional expenses. Downsizing
also means less maintenance, which gives you more
time to pursue your hobbies upon retiring.
Take on some additional work. While you may
have long felt you would slowly wind down in the years
immediately preceding retirement, taking on some
additional work outside of your current job is a great
way to save more for retirement and perhaps even lay
the foundation for a post-retirement career. Workers
over the age of 50 can be invaluable resources to
startups or other businesses looking for executives
who have been there, done that. Look for part-time
jobs that seek such experience. Even if the initial jobs
dont bowl you over financially, part-time consultant
work in retirement can make up for lost retirement savings and may even make your retirement years more
fulfilling.
Men and women on the verge of retirement can
take many steps to grow their retirement savings and
make their golden years that much more enjoyable.

Avoid the Costs of Delay


Time can be one of the most important factors determining
how much your money will grow. If you saved $5 a week at 8%
interest starting from the time you were 18 years old, by age 65,
your savings would total $134,000. If you wait until you are 40
years old, youll have to save $32 a week to have $134,000 at age
65. In fact, just one years delay waiting until youre 19 years
old to start saving $5 a week at 8% interest will cost you more
than $10,000 by the time youre 65.
