Township voters turn


down new levy again
MARION TOWNSHIP A .75-mill
operating levy for Marion Township garnered a little more support the second time
around than it did the first. Voters turned
down the new money 60-40 percent. The
levy failed in November as well.
Trustee Jerry Gilden said the numbers
were disappointing.
Obviously people arent going to give
us more money right now so were going
to have to sit down as a board and review
what were doing, Gilden said. Were in
the process of determining what roads need
fixed and some arent going to be. Once
you get behind, its very difficult to get
back on track and the cost of road repairs

are constantly going up.


Gilden also said other services will suffer due to the lack of funds.
Were not going to be able to do roadside mowing three or four times a season.
Well probably only do it once or twice,
he said. Were going to have look at the
money we have and do what we can. We
may have to cut back on snow removal as
well.
The township serves just over 6,700
people and is responsible for the maintenance and care of 45.31 miles of roads
(paving, chip sealing, crack sealing and
plowing), mowing the road ditches; drainage tile, catch basin, culvert and road sign
repair and replacement; and mows three
cemeteries.

Siefker wins Republican nod for November


BY STEVEN COBURNGRIFFIS
DHI Media Editor
sgriffis@putnamsentinel.com
OTTAWA While there were
three contested local races in this
years primary election, the one
that received the most attention,
for a host of reasons, was the
Republican bid for Sheriff.
Originally, the party laid claim
to three candidates for just one
slot. The unexpected and untimely death of Sheriff Michael
Chandler reduced the field to just
two: Captain Brian Siefker of the
Putnam County Sheriffs Office
and Columbus Grove Chief of
Police Nick Gilgenbach.
Though at times contentious
Gilgenbach and his supporters questioned Siefkers ethics for
accepting campaign contributions
from a variety of legal sources
both men campaigned arduously,
pursuing the position with an earnestness born of conviction.
On Tuesday evening, one man
was singled out.
I would like to thank everyone

Siefker
for coming out to exercise their right
to vote, Siefker said, accepting the
publics support and the opportunity to run as the Republican Partys
representative in next Novembers
election. I have dedicated the past
23 years serving the residents of
Putnam County. I am humbled
by the overflowing support that
I have received since making the
decision to run for Sheriff. I am
honored that you have chosen me

to advance to the November election. A top priority of mine is


to approach the heroin and opiate epidemic. I have already taken
steps regarding this. On March 14,
2016, a team of us that consisted of Sheriff Meyer, myself, and
members of the ADAMHS Board
and Pathways Counseling Center
traveled to Lucas County and met
with Sheriff Tharp and members of
the DART (Drug Abuse Response
Team) Program.
This is the first kind in the
nation that focuses on rehabilitation and assists addicts on the
road of recovery to become healthy
members of society again. Another
priority of mine is to continue
building the bridge of communication between the employees of the
Sheriffs Office, county offices,
schools and the citizens of Putnam
County. It is crucial that we all
work together to improve relationships and to make Putnam County
a safe and enjoyable place to live,
work and to raise our children
because this is our community.

The polls stayed busy in Van Wert County Tuesday for the March Primary Election, (DHI Media/Colin Kriegel)

Voters flock to polls for primary Election


BY COLIN KRIEGEL
DHI Community Reporter
ckriegel@timesbulletin.com

After a grueling race, Van Wert County finds


themselves with a new Prosecuting Attorney in Eva
Yarger while Todd Wolfrum handily retained his role
as county commissioner.
Unofficial results saw Eva Yarger narrowly claim
her new role from current Prosecutor Charles Kennedy

in a 50.52 percent to 49.48 percent nail biter. The


count was close enough in which Kennedy could
request a recount. That decision was unknown at the
time of this writing.
Yargers victory became even sweeter in a way
as just hours before polls closed, she had been
officially terminated by Kennedy effective this
Friday.

Celebrating the Canal

Optimist news

Receiving awards are Sue Ann Reis, Carol Kunz, Ron Kunz, Kathy Fought and Marie
Miller. (DHI Media/Kay Louth)
BY KAY LOUTH
DHI Media Staff Writer
klouth@delphosherald.com
The boatmen have declared its breakaway
time in Delphos. Sunday, at the Boatmans
Breakaway Dinner around 100 canal enthusiasts
and guests gathered at the Knights of Columbus
Hall to celebrate the canals heritage.
Lou Hohman, president of the Delphos Canal
Commission explained that when the boats still
plied their way along the canal, winters ice
would keep them in place for the season. When
the ice thawed the boatmen would declare the ice
is gone and the boats can run again.
Hohman updated the crowd on the museum
happenings including the creation of a model
train display in the basement. We hope to have
it finished by July, Hohman said. He also noted
that new lighting was going up in the museum as
well. Hohman also told the crowd that on April
3 the group would meet at the museum itself to
honor the DCCs volunteers.
Hohman also spoke about the many visitors
from out of the area that visit Delphos to see the
museum and canal. Bus tours are also frequent
in town. Visitors say its the best theyve been
to, Hohman said. The DCC would also like a
biking/walking trail noting that there was grant
money available and Hohman hoped the group
could take advantage of the grant money before
its all gone.
Also present at the dinner Vice President Steve
Dorsten explained that the new lighting was
needed after it was discovered the old fluorescent lighting damages the paper and cloth items
on display in the museum. The fluorescents are
being replaced with LEDs. All the work is done
by volunteers, including the new model train display, Hohman said.
Thanks to the efforts of Terrie Noonan the
dinners theme, Good Ole Fashioned School

Days, was illustrated by a mini-play about the


adventures of teaching and learning in a oneroom school.
Noonan, a retired teacher was the school
marm and directed a group of children played
by members of the audience, including a couple
of wise guys. Briefly she explained that female
teachers in 1848 werent allowed to marry,
although schoolmasters could, nor could they
been seen with a man outside of church function
or be out after dark. The marms also lived with
the students families on a rotating basis.
The school, Noonan said was known as a blab
school since books and supplies were in short
supply. The teacher in a blab school wrote lessons
for all grades on the blackboard. The students,
in unison, would repeat the lessons back to the
teacher, loudly and all at one time. The school
was also known as a subscription school in which
the students had to pay a penny or provide barter
items to attend. The collection was the teachers
salary.
The DCC also honored three volunteers with
certificates of appreciation Sunday. Those volunteers included Sue Ann Reis, for serving as the
receptionist at the museum, which freed up other
volunteers to complete their work. Kathy Fought
for her work on the Christmas tree display and
as a docent. Marie Miller for introducing the
museum to schoolchildren. Ron and Carol Kunz
were also presented with the Delphos Heritage
Award for their work preserving and presenting
the history of Delphos.
Hohman, who has worked with the DCC
since its creation in 1987 stressed the importance
of volunteers to the organization, noting it was a
non-profit and it is run by volunteers.
He also expressed his appreciation for the
community.
Im thankful for all the support for the canal
museum. It belongs to the citizens of Delphos

Hannah Wiltsie, a fifth-grader at Landeck Elementary School, was named the


Optimist Clubs Most Improved Student. She is the daughter of Scott and Andrew

Johnny Football No.


now a former Brown

1 Lancers prep for Tigers

BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor

jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

Did it surprise
Jim Metcalfe
anyone that the
Cleveland Browns
actually cut Johnny
Football?
In all honesty, I
cant blame them for
making this move.
After all, every
time he claimed he
was going to get serious about becoming a better quarterback, he shot himself in
the foot.
Mike Pettine went to bat for him again and again and again

And he got stabbed in the back by his protege.


I dont think that was why he lost his coaching job but it
made you think if Mr. Pettine was actually serious about building a team.
I understand that coaches need to treat their players as
men which is what Pettine attempted to do and allow him
to become more personally responsible to the team but
when you keep giving someone a pass when they prove over
and over again they cant be trusted, the other players have to
wonder about the whole thing.
Like, would he be doing this for me if I werent a QB?
There is a certain cohesion and discipline that you need to
be a successful team on any level, let alone at the highest level
of a given sport.
Each team is different but those are things you have to have
to pull it all together, as well as hard work, talent, health, team
chemistry and depth.
Of course, hes already been quoted in several articles as
saying he will be in an NFL uniform in 2016 (Please God, let
it not be with the Dallas Cowboys! Please let it not be so!).
I dont know with whom he will be you know as well
as I that some team WILL pick him up but whichever team
does so better not act surprised or feel disappointed when he
fails them, too.
This means the Browns will once again go shopping in the
draft or on the free-agent market to try and find a quarterback.
Speaking of which, isntit interesting how many teams are
willing to pay big money for non-superstar quarterbacks?
The Texans signing former Denver Bronco Brock Osweiler
for about $18 million per year, basically telling Brian Hoyer
a free agent signed last off-season from the Browns (hmmm
could be a trade in the works there!) to be-gone!
I figured Osweiler would re-sign with the Broncos to
replace Peyton Manning (he did start a number of games for
them) but they let him go. Ostensibly, it was to allow themselves to re-sign some of their premier defensive free agents.

MIDDLE POINT Its


been a long time since the
Lincolnview boys basketball
Lancers were in the rarefied
air of the OHSAA State
Basketball Tournament.
The last time the Lancers
were in the Final Four was
1997, when they took home
a Division IV title led by the
likes of Brandon Pardon, Wes
Dudgeon and Frank Kill.
A generation later, this
years crew has made it this
far with a 26-1 mark and
ended up No. 1 in the final
Associated Press ranking.
They will tangle with
10th-ranked Jackson Center
(24-4) 2 p.m. Friday inside
the Jerome Schottenstein
Center.
One of the reasons,
according to head coach Brett
Hammons, is extraordinary
chemistry.
We have a lot of cohesion. You almost expect that
with a group of seven seniors
that have been playing
together since second or third
grade, Hammons said. The
thing is, they not only communicate well but its even
silent communication that
they do so well. They know
what each other is doing and
where theyre going to be.
They understand their
roles and they do them well
but they can also pick up the
slack when called upon. Like
when we didnt have Trevor
Neate for a number of games;
players accepted the challenge and helped each other
even more. We had each others back. He came back as
the tournament began and
though hes not 100 percent,
hes back to about 90. Hes
just had to gain confidence

Lincolnview senior Derek Youtsey heads to the rim during Regional semifinal action
versus Fayette. He hopes to lead his Lancers past Jackson Center in Fridays Division IV
State semifinals. (DHI Media/Tina Eley)
again.
With other key seniors
like Chandler Adams and
Hayden Ludwig, this group
knows how to play great team
defense, holding opponents
to 41 points per game.
We had a lot of players back from a 14-10 team
last year but we still had to
put it all together. We had
some early injuries as well
and still had some newcom-

ers that had to adjust to their


roles and the level of varsity play, Hammons continued. We had a stretch where
we played very well against
Spencerville and Wayne
Trace and that seemed to
get us going as far as confidence and realizing we could
have something special here.
Players like Chandler began
to give us more consistency
and that was also a key.

For example, weve been


up and down with our 3-point
shooting, with Derek Youtsey
probably our best 3-point
shooter and Hayden coming
along. Overall, we have good
balance scoring-wise (four
players average between 9.9
and 12.2 points per game)
and we have a lot of versatility with our overall length.

Workshops available to become Fishing
Instructors
AKRON Two workshop opportunities
are available in northeast Ohio this spring
for individuals who are interested in becoming certified Passport to Fishing instructors,
according to the Ohio Department of Natural
Resources (ODNR).
Both workshops are scheduled from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m. at Wildlife District Three
Headquarters, 912 Portage Lakes Drive,
Akron. The dates are April 17 and April 23.
Participants are only required to attend one
class.
Workshops are free but pre-registration
is required as seating is limited; call Ken
Fry, Division of Wildlife at (330) 245-3030.
Participants must be at least 18 years old and
will be required to participate in a background
check.
By becoming certified instructors, attendees will help connect youths with the outdoors. Resources available to instructors
include grants, equipment, brochures, and
training.
Passport to Fishing was developed by
the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and adopted by the Recreational Boating and Fishing
Foundation. Workshops teach volunteers the
basics of fishing and how to run a four-station
fishing program with a fishing event. These
instructors then go back to their communities,
with a written curriculum and training aids,
to teach youngsters and beginning anglers the
basics of fishing.

Hot bite!
Walleye fishing the Western Basin this past
weekend: trolling was successful with Bandits,
Perfect 10s, and Husky Jerks. If jigging, try blade
baits and hair jigs.
Reminder: the water temps are still only 38-40
degrees. Its not the best kayak fishing temps for
inexperienced anglers, so please be cautious.

See LANCERS, page 7A

========
Families On The Water Program
Families On The Water is a pilot program from
the Ohio Department of Natural Resources a
partnership among the Division of Wildlife, the
Division of Watercraft and the Division of Parks
and Recreation to get the whole family outdoors to learn about and enjoy boating and fishing,
together.
The 2016 program includes:
Two workshops at Cabelas (Polaris): 6-8 p.m.
June 7 and June 9
An all-day fishing and boating outing at
Delaware State Park on June 11, and
An overnight campout at Delaware State Park
June 17, followed by a day of activities June 18.
Families must commit to attending all events
associated with the program including a family
interview and successfully completing an Ohio
Boating Education Course (Home Study version)
provided by ODNR.
Participants will receive instruction on boat
handling, pole rigging, fish species, fishing technique, tent set-up, campfire cooking and campground safety as well as advice on how to shop,
what to buy, what resources are available and how
to use them.
All materials, gear, boats, and equipment will
be provided except that by June 7, participants 16
or older must have a valid Ohio fishing license.
(May be purchased first night at Cabelas.)
Deadline to apply is May 1.

Ginseng hunters reminder
COLUMBUS American ginseng (Panax
quinquefolius) hunters are being reminded that
uncertified root may not be possessed after March
31 without a weight receipt, according to the
Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).
Anyone planning to keep uncertified ginseng
beyond the deadline must schedule an appointment
to get it weighed and documented.
In Ohio, the harvest season for ginseng runs
from Sept. 1 to Dec. 31 each year. All harvested
ginseng must be certified by the ODNR Division of
Wildlife prior to export from the state to verify its
weight and legal origin. Federal law requires that
all state lots of ginseng be separated and totaled by
the year. Because of this necessity, all uncertified
ginseng must be weighed and accounted for each
year.

Sports

Lancers

(Continued from page 6A)

Weve also had tremendous community support. Its been


electric, especially after the middle of the season. Our reserved
seats were full every night and we have had great road support
at Van Wert, Elida and Bowling Green; there was a lot of blue
and gold in those gymnasiums. What we really appreciated is
when we drove through Middle Point Friday night and just to
see how many were there to celebrate with us.
Lincolnview will be looking to duplicate its 1997 Division
IV state title after ending up as 1996 runners-up.
Still, it wont be easy to handle the Tigers, who themselves
were runners-up in 2012, as well as 1963, and have one title
in 1985.
They have some dangerous players that are as talented as
any weve played against this winter. We have seen some 6-6,
6-7 kids this season but they were either outside shooters or
post-up players; Brady Wildermuth is about that size but he
can do both very well, Hammons said. He can shoot the 3
well and make a move in the paint. Drew Sosby is one of the
better point guards we have faced this season. They are a lethal
combination. I look at Ethan Zorn as another dangerous scorer
to balance them out.
We have some length to deal with Wildermuth but were
going to have to use a lot of different people to do so because
of his versatility. Well probably start out with Austin Leeth on
Sosby; he does a great job of defending the other teams point
guard but again, we are going to have to rotate people on him
as well to help neutralize his ability.
As part of their story, Kill will bring the only team that
defeated Lincolnview this winter, once-beaten and top-ranked
Lima Central Catholic, into the Division III semifinals.
They were the best team we faced all season. Frank is still
considered a part of our community; were all happy he could
come back to the area and be successful as a coach, Hammons
added. I guarantee a lot of Lancer fans that will be down there
will also be pulling for Frank to do well.
Jackson Centers run to the State semifinals might be the
most surprising, according to head coach Scott Elchert.
We were in a unique situation to start the season; we
returned three starters from last season in Drew, Brady and
Ethan. The rest of our roster were all new to varsity and had
no experience from last season, Elchert explained. This
group started in the summer and during the pre-season and
just worked hard to come together. Obviously, with Brady and
Drew leading the way in most categories, the youngsters began
to gain experience and got so much better filling their needed
roles. We play in the always-tough Shelby County League
and I feel that from top to bottom, this is the strongest it has
ever been, so it has prepared us even more. There was never a
gimme game this season in the conference and we play a tough
non-league slate to further make us better; we had to grow up
in a hurry.
The boys basketball success has just added to the strong
athletic successful on 2015-16.
Our volleyball team won State in November and and our
girls team went to State as well. Its just been an electric atmosphere around the school since November and continues to be
so, Elchert said.
Elchert acknowledged the strengths of Lincolnview.
They have a lot of length across the board, so that is one
area of concern for us. Seven of their top eight are seniors, so
they have experience and, as Coach Hammons said, a lot of
team chemistry, he added. Along with that, they have excellent balance offensively and they have impressed with their
defensive effort.
There are three keys for us. First, we must rebound on both
ends of the floor. They are really good on both ends as far as
rebounding and either getting second shots or limiting your
second chances. Second, we must play good team defense.
They have so many weapons beyond the key scorers. Thirdly,
The Schott is such an atmosphere that it can be awesome and
get to you. It will get to everyone but you just have to settle
down quickly. You just have to start playing.

Musings

(Continued from page 6A)

They have already remade


their team into a defensive-oriented unit, relying
more on the running game
than the pass-happy days of
Manning of even two years
ago.
Even there, though, they
have lost some key ingredients on defense and until they
traded for Mark Sanchez,
their quarterback was Trevor
Siemian to replace Peyton.
Well, at least Sanchez will
only get about $4.5 million
this year.
Im not sure hes worth
THAT much!
Apparently, the Broncos
might also be interested
in Ryan Fitzpatrick but he
expects to seek about the
same money as Osweiler.
Ouch!
I almost forget about
Robert Griffin III, who might

be a good fit for Cleveland


or Dallas (I could approve of
that) if only he wasnt going
to see about the same kind of
moolah.
After all, Tony Romo is
getting up there and the injuries are piling up.
Also, there seems to be
many more trades during the
off-season than normal.
The Philadelphia Eagles in
particular are purging players
from the Chip Kelly era
only 2 years of it!.
Not only did they trade
Sanchez but at least three
more guys waved bye-bye
that way!
This is kind of fun!
I have to add this about
Peyton: he has HGH rumors
swirling around him.
Being that the source is
Al-Jazeera, I would trust it as
far as I could throw a 1,000pound man!
Have a nice day!

BUs McElroy, Thomas sweep
HCAC weekly softball awards
BLUFFTON A 6-1 finish to the
week in Florida propelled the Bluffton
University softball team to a sweep
of the Heartland Collegiate Athletic
Conference Player of the Week awards
for the week ending Sunday.
Josie McElroy (Mt. Orab/Western
Brown) raked her way to Hitter of the
Week honors, while fellow sophomore
Nicole Thomas (Tontogany/Otsego) was
nearly untouchable in the circle en route
to Pitcher of the Week acclaim.
McElroy led the Beavers to a 6-2
record during the week in Kissimmee.
It marks the second time in her career
that McElroy has been the HCACs top
hitter. The sophomore infielder finished
the week a red-hot 11-for-21 (.524) with
seven runs scored, four doubles, four
home runs and 13 RBIs, while posting a
slugging percentage of 1.286.
Thomas finished 2-0 in a pair of
starts last week.
The sophomore finished with a miniscule 0.64 ERA, struck out three, and
limited her opponents to a .233 batting average as she defeated Carroll

A 2-time HCAC Player of the Week
as a senior, Recker finished second in
the conference with 20.3 PPG and 8.6
RPG. His 507 points this year are 14th
all-time for a single season.
His 55.6 FG percentage was eighth
in the conference while Reckers 154
makes at the charity stripe are third alltime, giving him two of the top three
spots (178) for free throws. He hit 77.4
percent from the line, dished out 48
assists and blocked 20 shots this season.
As a junior, Recker was named the
USBWAs National Player of the Week
following his 53 points in Blufftons
103-102 triple-overtime victory over
Hanover College. The 53 points was an
HCAC and Bluffton record for points
in a game, as well as the most points
scored in a game by a Division III player
in 2014-15.
Recker was also named to the
D3hoops.com team of the week twice
and was HCAC Player of the Week three
times as a junior.
Following Blufftons magical tourney
run, Recker was named to the HCAC
All-Tournament team after averaging
26.3 points and 10 boards per game in
leading the Beavers to their first ever
HCAC title game. He was a SecondTeam All-Great Lakes Region selection last season before being named a
pre-season All-American this year.
Recker finished off his decorated
career as the #5 leading scorer alltime with 1,613 points as a Beaver. He
shattered the career free throws made
mark of 424 by Mark Froning (196568) with 465 conversions at the line and
his 610 attempts equaled him with Pete
DuMonte (1984-87) for the most-ever
free throw attempts in Bluffton history.
His 777 career boards are seventh alltime and they helped him become the
11th player in Blufftons history to go
for 1,000 points and 500 rebounds. He
is just the fourth Beaver to finish with
at least 1,600 points and 750 boards.
Recker hit double figures in each contest
as a senior, giving him 37 straight games
of at least 10 points to end his career.

Wildlife work ongoing
Wildlife Management recently completed tree work on a
22-acre field on Caesar Creek
Wildlife Area. The purpose of
the work was to eliminate invasive species and to maintain the
area in early successional oldfield type of habitat. The goal
is to provide grass, forbs, and
brushy cover for game species
such as deer, rabbit, quail, and
pheasant.
Invasive honeysuckle was
removed from a pond dam on
the area. The honeysuckle on
this site had become so thick that
maintenance on the pond dam
had become impossible. The site
was then seeded with cool season grasses to help stabilize soil
on the dam. Its already starting
to green up!

named the Great Lakes Region Coach


of the Year following a record-shattering
2015-16 womens basketball campaign
for the Beavers!
He was honored by D3hoops.com
less than two weeks after being selected
the HCAC Coach of the Year.
It marks the first time in Bluffton
womens basketball history for both of
those prestigious honors.
Back-to-back seasons of setting
school marks for wins in a season helped
Coach Shutler to the post-season hardware. He became the all-time winningest coach in Bluffton womens basketball history in January and is currently at
130 career victories.
An 18-0 start that smashed the previous high-water mark of six straight wins
in a season helped the Beavers break the
school record for wins in a season for
the second consecutive year. Bluffton
jumped over the previous mark of 16
with 18 wins last season and obliterated
it with 25 as well as a first-ever NCAA
Tournament game for a Bluffton womens team.
He guided the women to their first-ever regular-season championship in the
HCAC and proceeded to follow that up
with the first-ever HCAC Tournament
title.
The Beavers made their inaugural
appearances in the national Top 25 for
both the D3hoops.com and USA Today/
Coaches polls. Bluffton finished the
season at #17 in the USA Today poll,
the highest ranking ever for a Bluffton
basketball team.
His 2015-16 seniors have set the
bar high, rolling off 69 wins during
their time at Bluffton, 18 more than the
previous mark of 51 set just one season
ago. Two of those six seniors, Taylor
Whitaker (Mansfield/Lexington) and
Kaitlyn Pennekamp (Hamilton/Ross),
became the first duo from one class to
eclipse 1,000 career points when they
did it on back-to-back nights. And it
all started when Coach Shutler came
to Bluffton in 2005-06 and inherited a
program that had gone 8-93 over the
previous four years!

Local insurance agencies merge


Information submitted

DELPHOS Leland Smith


Insurance Services of Van Wert and
Hickey-Morris Agency of Delphos have
completed a merger which will provide
customers in the Delphos area with
access to a wide variety of new insurance services and options.
Hickey-Morris Insurance, established
in 1959 by Cletus Hickey, is merging
with Leland Smith Insurance Services,
serving the community for over 31 years
from offices in Van Wert, Paulding,
Antwerp, Convoy, and Ottoville.
My partner Dan Morris and I are
excited about our new partnership with
the Leland Smith agency. This relationship will allow us to expand the
companies we can represent for home,

auto, life, and business customers, and


it means we can continue to provide the
kind of one-on-one service that we feel
has set our agency apart for more than
five decades, Hickey-Morris Insurance
President Dennis Hickey said.
Randy Myers, president of Leland
Smith, is also looking forward to the
partnership.
Both agencies are very similar in
the kind of commitment to community
support and sponsorships of area youth
activities. Our philosophies make us a
natural fit to work together, Myers said.
Under terms of the merger, effective
on March 1, Hickey-Morris Insurance
offices will remain on East Second
Street. Dennis Hickey and Dan Morris
will continue to serve as local contacts
for the agency.

Putting together a great wedding on a budget


BY NATHANIEL
SILLIN
Will a modern wedding
endanger your finances? It
doesnt have to.
With the average price of
an American wedding over
$31,000, the big day can
impose financial stress for
those who dont have savings in place. Its important to
remember that these numbers
indicate greater trends not
suggested spending patterns.
Before discussion about a
ceremony or reception even
begins, its smart for couples
to have a frank talk about
money issues in general.
Share financial information
such as current spending,
savings, investment and credit status (https://www.annualcreditreport.com/index.
action). While this conver-

sation may not seem terribly romantic, honesty about


respective finances is the first
step to responsible financial
planning and compatibility.
Once youve chosen a
desired wedding date, set a
savings target with a realistic budget. If you want to
get married fairly soon, realize youll have less time to
build a wedding fund. Start
by making a general list
(https://www.theknot.com/
wedding-budget/start) of
everything you might want
in a wedding, and then adjust
your vision to what will be
in the bank by your desired
date.
As the numbers start looking real to you, determine
what can be purchased or
done inexpensively and others that will require profes-

sional help. Take a look at the


guest list and see if you can
make some cuts. Consider
a handheld music player
hooked up to a great speaker
system instead of a live band.
Are you content with your
brothers photo and video
skills, or is it a better idea to
hire a professional team?
Consider off-dates, offtimes and off-venues. Though
wedding season is more yearround than its ever been,
wedding prices still tend to be
highest throughout the warm
months. Explore winter dates
and more obscure venues.
Take City Hall, for example.
Depending on the municipality, you can either schedule
ahead or show up with local
license and ceremonial fees
as the only costs involved.
Theres no need for expensive wardrobe or other trappings. What about having the
wedding at home? Its free
space and, depending on the
talents of friends and family,
homemade food and decorations can also keep expenses
to a minimum. But remember
that the home or property
owner may need a special
insurance rider to cover any
potential damage or liability,
particularly if liquor is being
served.
And finally, consider a
surprise wedding. Planning
a party or gathering where a
wedding breaks out can provide money-saving advantages to guests and bridal party
alike. Having a wedding at

Nathaniel Sillin

a party especially a regular


holiday party you host where
family and friends already
know to gather requires little more than a legal officiant
and whatever food, beverage,
entertainment and insurance
costs you need to consider.
An unannounced wedding
eliminates all pre-wedding
costs related to invitations,
showers and parties, and you
can give your guests a break
on gifts.
Bottom line: Flashy weddings arent worth jeopardizing your finances for years to
come. Make creative, affordable wedding planning part
of your love story.

and to all other concerned persons,


You are notified that such property has been presumed to be abandoned. You are further notified that a Complaint pursuant to Ohios
unclaimed property statutes, ORC 169.01, et seq., and identifying you as an owner has been filed in the Court of Common Pleas for the
County of Franklin County, Ohio, by the Ohio Director of Commerce seeking a declaration that title to the above-described U.S. savings
bonds has passed to the state of Ohio by way of escheat pursuant to ORC 169.051.
There are hundreds of millions of dollars in matured U.S. Savings Bonds which were issued to Ohio citizens decades ago, most of which
have become abandoned, lost, stolen, destroyed or relinquished. The U.S. Treasury continues to hold the proceeds of these bonds while
making little to no effort to seek out the owners and return the proceeds. To address this inequity, the Ohio legislature passed legislation to
allow the State of Ohio to take title to unclaimed and abandoned U.S. Savings Bonds by a process known as title-based escheatment. The
new law also provides persons asserting an equitable interest in the proceeds from these bonds to assert a claim after redemption by the state
occurs. For further information about this lawsuit, visit http://www.com.ohio.gov/unfd. The Ohio Department of Commerces Division of
Unclaimed Funds is taking steps to recover the proceeds from these abandoned, lost, stolen, destroyed, relinquished, and unclaimed mature

St. Patricks Day fun for youngsters


St. Patricks Day revelry might be most associated with
adults who enjoy hoisting a few pints and listening to music at Irish pubs, but that does not mean kids cant also
enjoy this beloved holiday. The following are a handful
of ways to infuse kids with the spirit of St. Patricks Day.
Parades
Parades are fun for people of all ages. Local community parades may encourage families to march, and parents
should take advantage of such opportunities. But even
large parades in big cities can be fun for youngsters, who
can dress up in green and enjoy all the pomp and circumstance of high school bands, bagpipers, Irish dance groups,
and additional participants.
Music
St. Patricks Day and Irish culture in particular is synonymous with music, and there may be no better way to
stoke kids enthusiasm for St. Patricks Day than to introduce them to Irish music. Check out local entertainment
venues to see if there are any Irish-inspired concerts on
tap. If possible, find shows geared toward youngsters that
encourage them to participate by singing along or dancing
as the musicians play. Kids who seem especially inspired
can even be encouraged to learn an instrument associated
with Irish music, such as the banjo, tin whistle or violin.
Dance
Another way to get kids excited about St. Patricks
Day is to arrange for them to learn any of the traditional
Irish dance forms. Parents can even enroll alongside their
youngsters, making this a fun way for families to enjoy

some quality time together. Look around for classes offering lessons on Irish cil dances, Irish set dancing or Irish
step dancing.
Crafts
Many families decorate their homes for St. Patricks
Day. While such decorations are rarely as extensive as
Christmas decorations, parents can encourage their kids
creative sides by organizing crafts projects for youngsters
and their friends. Design projects where kids can create
some of the symbols of St. Patricks Day that appear in popular culture, such as four-leaf clovers or leprechauns.
While many St. Patricks Day celebrations are geared
toward adults, parents can still take steps to involve their
children in this years festivities.

New parents face a host of challenges upon bring their newborn sons and daughters home, not the least of which is childproofing their homes so the newest additions to their families
are safe and sound. The strategies moms and dads employ when
childproofing their homes will change as youngsters grow older
and mure curious, but the following are a few tips to get parents
started.
Install safety latches and locks on cabinets and drawers. Curiosity might start to take over at the moment infants learn to
crawl, so parents should install safety latches and locks on all
cabinets and drawers in their homes. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission notes that such latches and locks
can prevent access to a host of potentially harmful items, such as
medications, cleaning products, knives, and other sharp objects.
Use anti-scald devices. Burns from hot water can quickly
cause significant burns to young childrens skin, so install anti-scald devices that regulate water temperature and reduce the
risk of kids being burned. The CPSC also recommends lowering water heaters to 120 F to further reduce the risk of burns.
Use safety gates at stairways and in rooms that are off limits. Safety gates around stairways and in doorways of prohibited rooms can reduce the likelihood of potentially harmful falls
and keep kids out of rooms where they might be harmed. Place
gates in the doorways of rooms that contain sharp objects, work
tools, substances that can prove harmful if ingested, and any
other items you dont want inquisitive tots to come into contact
with. Make sure all safety gates at the top of stairways are the
kind that can be nailed into the wall.
Attach bumpers to the edges of sharp furniture. Corner and
edge bumpers can reduce the risk of injury when kids bang their
heads on sharp furniture such as coffee tables or other items
with hard edges. Make sure the bumpers are firmly secured before allowing youngsters into the room.
Infants, toddlers and young children are vulnerable to injury
around the house. Parents can reduce that injury risk by taking
several steps to childproof their homes. More childproofing tips
are available at www.cpsc.gov.

Lammers will face off against Democrat Tony Wobler,
who ran unopposed in the primary, in Novembers general
election.
The second contested commissioners seat was occupied by incumbent Vince Schroeder, Leipsic. Schroeder,
who will complete his third term on the Board of
Commissioners at the end of this year, was challenged by
Carl Gerten, also of Leipsic.
In a unique twist, as there is currently no challenger for
this particular seat in the November general election, the
primary was the general election and a winner-take-all for
whomever received the most votes. As it worked out, it
was Schroeder who will assume his fourth term in January.
I appreciate the confidence the electorate has in me;
its humbling, Schroeder said, by way of an acceptance
speech. I will do the best that I can for the next four years
for the people of Putnam County.
Gerten, whose motivations to run ranged from what
he considers the Road 5 debacle to concerns about an
overreaching government wherein the 6119 project is concerned, said, I would like to thank the people of Putnam
County who did vote for me and my family, who have

Good Vibrations

"What A Waste!"

By Ed Clark

The music that moves us ...

Ottoville native Russell Schlagbaum


(SeniorWise of 3/12/16) spent some 40 years
on the road working for, with and around some
of the most recognizable names in rock n roll
music. In his sit-down with Good Vibrations,
Russell asked, Whats the earliest song you
can remember hearing? Can you remember?
(For Russell it was The Blue Tango, myself
The Lion Sleeps Tonight.)
Russell began his music reflections by
zooming in on the importance of Louis Jordan
& his Tympany Five in the evolution to rock
n roll. (1944) (If interested you-tube Louis
Jordan Caldonia) Jordan, a big-timer jazzman
in his day, perhaps right after the names Duke
Ellington and Count Basie, offered a transformative jumpin blues and boogie-woogie
sound that would be a precursor to the age of
rock n roll. Early evidence of his influence can
be heard with Chuck Berrys-Johnnie B. Goode
and Rock around the Clock from Bill Haley
& his Comets. The up-tempo sound widely
attracted both black and white audiences of
the day.
Russells first association when hearing
names of some of the great ones.
Chuck Berry: Incredible performer and still
playing at 89. (YouTube Chuck Berry 2014
Johnnie B. Goode)
Elvis: He was huge and simply could not
be denied.
Frank Sinatra: All time great singer, musician, crooner, star.
Roy Orbison: A pause, a smile, simply one
of the best.
Les Paul: He invented the electric guitar so
he could be heard in a big-band.
Paul McCartney: The most prolific song
writer ever.
Jimi Hendrix: He played with such fluidity
that all the other guitar greats of the day knuckled down to get better.
Brian Wilson: An absolute genius, knew

exactly what he wanted to do in the studio.


David Bowie: Gentle, professional, created
these different personalities.
Neil Young: Tremendous songwriter,
vocalist, his love of nature and his fear of its
protection always present.
Russells observations of great ones
that he knew, worked for, or was around:
Keith Richards: Simply the riff master,
warm and generous, master of his craft.
Mick Jagger: Brilliant, likeable man, warm
when you find Mick, then there is a wall that
goes up and he is Mick Jagger.
Ron Wood: Epitomizes rock star, great to
be around.
Charlie Watts: Rock solid 4x4 drummer,
like a heartbeat, always on time.
Elton John: Phenomenal, he and his piano
alone can just fill a 25,000-seat arena with
sound.
Joe Walsh: A great, great guitarist, a spirit a
lot like Ron Wood.
Eric Clapton: My favorite, best guitarist.
His total comprehension of the Blues, he never
runs out of notes.
Pete Townshend: A black and white kind of
man, master of the guitar.
Jimmy Buffett: Humble, talented, beautiful
songwriter, sweet man.
Russell was on the road an average of 280
days a year the last 10 years of his career.
(He estimated being involved with some 350
shows worldwide with The Rolling Stones).
Especially dear to his ears are Eric Burton
& The Animals, The Everly Brothers, The
Young Rascals, Crystal Gayle, The Byrds, The
Beatles, Paul Revere & The Raiders, Loretta
Lynn, The Eagles, Randy Travis and on and on.
Russell may have best summed up the impact
of music in our lives when he said, Its what
you listen to when youre so impressionable, it
sticks in your brain. Ahyes indeed. Thanks
Russell. Good Vibrations.
