ODOT announces $2.1 billion in projects


2016 AMG | Parade

BY KAY LOUTH
DHI Media Staff Writer
klouth@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS Its definitely
springtime in Ohio, roadwork is
blossoming all over the tri-counties.
The Ohio Department of
Transportation will invest $2.1 billion in the states transportation
network this construction season.
The 2016 program is driven by
two key components: addressing
major critical infrastructure needs
today, and introducing an enhanced,
data-driven business strategy for
maintaining the 43,000 miles of
roads and 14,000 bridges on the
state system.

ODOT will deliver more than


1,100 projects across the state in
2016. Altogether, they are designed
to improve the condition of roads
and bridges, increase safety and
make the transportation of people
and goods more efficient.
Were charged with the care of
Ohios largest man-made asset
the transportation network, said
ODOT Director Jerry Wray. We
take this very seriously, because
investments in our infrastructure
are vital to Ohios economic growth
and development. By maintaining a
safe, reliable, and efficient system,
we help to create the environment
for more jobs, easier commerce,
and a stronger Ohiofor today and

for tomorrow.
Of the 1,100 projects in 2016,
157 will focus specifically on safety, at a cost of $256.4 million.
The program includes $417.5 million for improving the condition
of more than 1,167 bridges and
$629.3 million for 6,485 miles of
pavement.
ODOT is also adding capacity
to the system where it is most
needed today, after careful planning, research and project development. This year, the state will invest
$207.1 millionor approximately
10 percent of the overall construction budgetin expanding roads to
ease current congestion.
The 2016 construction program

features 27 projects valued over


$10 million, with a combined value
of $769 million. It also represents a
fourth consecutive year of near-record dollars invested, made possible
in large part by Governor Kasichs
Jobs & Transportation Plan. From
2011 to 2016, ODOT has committed roughly $12.5 billion across
5,934 projectsthe largest overall
transportation investment in Ohios
history.
Allen, Van Wert and Putnam
counties are up for their share
of road projects this year; Allen
County has the lead with 11 in total.
Five of those are by ODOT and six
are local government projects. Total
cost for all projects is $17,085,950.

In Allen County, drivers will


encounter ODOT projects on SR
309 from Robb Avenue to Cole
Street, where ODOT is resurfacing with asphalt concrete, replacing guardrails, curbs, gutters and
inlets. The signal lights at Rosedale
Avenue and Cole Street will be
reconstructed and the removal of
the Grand Avenue extension from
Rosedale Avenue to Kenilworth
Avenue Traffic is maintained during
the work.
Culvert work will take place
in various locations on SR 309.
Drivers will encounter detours.
Expect a 70-day completion target.

Ottoville Council does


some housekeeping
BY KAY LOUTH
DHI Media Staff Writer
klouth@delphosherald.com

OTTOVILLE Ottovilles village council meeting was


jam-packed Monday night as council members heard reports
and presentations from a variety of sources.
Starting off the evening, Tony Wobler stopped by to briefly introduce himself to members as a candidate for Putnam
County Commissioner. Wobler told them about his stint of
24 years with Ohio, in personnel and transportation, his
business as an electrician and the 14 years he spent with an
Putnam County electric company. Wobler also served on the
Board of Elections for Putnam County and the library board.
He also mentioned his son, Staff Sgt. Zachary Ryan Wobler,
who was killed in service in Iraq.
I will work hard for you, he said. Ill do whatever I
can for the village.
Council conducted some typical housekeeping chores
such as paying bills. Council also requested the use of the
fire departments gas detector meter, as a safety precaution
to protect employees from toxic gas whenever an employee
had to enter the sanitary system via manholes. Public Affairs
President Phil Hilvers was on hand to hear the request from
the village to the fire department. Hilvers told council he
only had to get approval from the fire department and the
fire board, and that he didnt anticipate any problems with
the request.
Hilvers also told council that lead testing in the villages
water is conducted regularly and the lead levels in the villages water was very low.
In April, flow meters will be installed in Auglaize Street
sanitary sewer lines for detection of ground water infiltrating
the lines.
Council heard reports on the Bendele storm water project.
Mayor Ron Miller said it was going well and that it was very
near completion. Along with council also heard about Sixth
and Seventh streets repaving as well as East Canal Street
resurfacing project; a street in dire need of attention.
The search is on for mapping technology, Geographical
Information System or GIS. This technology, consisting of
software and small devices, will be used to map all the assets
in the wastewater/storm/water systems in the village, from
the location of each hydrant to shut off valves, even if that
asset is buried under several feet of snow.
Chris Sherman from Pipe Specialists EJP in Lima presented the system to council Monday and submitted a bid for
councils consideration.

FORT JENNINGS Jean
Tavenner, 82, of Fot Jennings
passed away Monday at
Westminster Thurber Health
Center in Columbus, where she
had been cared for to be near her
daughters home.
She was born June 4, 1933,
in Allen County to Edgar and
Helen (White) Schultz, who
preceded her in death.
on Aug. 11, 1955, she was
united in marriage to Richard
Dick Tavenner, who survives
in Fort Jennings.
She is also survived by a son, Dan (Christine) Tavenner of
Colorado Springs; three daughters, Deborah Tavenner of Columbus,
Susan (Joe) Peschel of Toledo and Barbara (Jon) Warren of Colona,
Illinois; four grandchildren, Ben (Kendalyn) Diroll, Carrie Diroll,

Kathie Haddle; and one grandson, Christopher Warren.
Jean graduated from Gomer High School in 1951. She was

Jean gave to others in so many ways that all cannot be mentioned here. She was loved by families other than her own for
being a caregiver and babysitter for working families. She was
known for her popcorn balls at Halloween and decorated sugar
cookies for all holidays. She had a special knack for baking zucchini bread that neighborhood kids would ask for and receive. She
was a seamstress and loved to embroider. Gardening was a love of
hers. She preserved a bounty of fruits and vegetables and loved all
flowers. She loved watching the Cardinals at the bird feeder outside
her kitchen window. On top of all of this she volunteered at Lima
Memorial Medical Park and worked for the Putnam County Board
of Elections where she was a presiding judge for many years. Her
family was most important to her. She hosted many large family
reunions in her back yard, and visited relatives who lived all over
the country.
The funeral service will begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Harter
and Schier Funeral Home, with burial at Walnut Grove Cemetery.
Visitation will be from 2-8 p.m. Friday and one hour before the

Information submitted
COLUMBUS The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) has issued new guidance and information
to prevent Zika virus transmission for pregnant women and
to prevent sexual transmission. Ohio currently has nine confirmed cases of Zika virus in returning travelers from Zikaaffected countries. CDC is reporting 273 travel-associated
Zika virus cases in 36 states and the District of Columbia, led
by Florida with 70 cases.
The updated guidance for pregnant women is based on evidence that supports a link between Zika and microcephaly, a
birth defect that is a sign of incomplete brain development, and
can cause other problems such as miscarriage and stillbirth.
The updated CDC recommendations are:
For women who have been diagnosed with Zika virus or
who have symptoms of Zika including fever, rash, joint pain
or red eyes, to wait at least eight weeks after their symptoms
appeared to get pregnant.
For men who have been diagnosed with Zika virus or who
have symptoms to wait at least six months to have unprotected
sex.

Panthers maul Bearcats in 6

BY JOHN PARENT
DHI Media Regional Sports Editor
sports@timesbulletin.com

ROCKFORD Parkway
scored multiple runs in each
of the first four innings in
its home opener against
Spencerville on Tuesday and
rolled to a 12-2 victory.
The Panthers (2-1) scored
three times in the first as
Bearcat starter Keaton Lotz
struggled with control. Lotz
hit each of the first three
Panthers batters before walking the fourth. He exited
after recording only one out
and was charged with three
earned runs.
That first inning gave
Connor Morton all the support
he would need, as the righthander held the Bearcats to a
pair of unearned runs, those
coming in the fifth. By that
time, Parkway had already
built a 10-0 cushion.

Morton needed only 52


pitches to record his 15 outs,
holding Spencerville to three
hits. He struck out one.
Spencerville pitchers combined to issue seven walks
and five hit batsmen in the
game. Those free baserunners supplemented a 14-hit
Panther attack. Clayton Agler
led the way for Parkway
with three hits and a pair
of runs batted in. Jensen
Riley knocked in three while
Derrick Mosier, Morton and
Alec Schoenleben each drove
in a pair of runs in the game.
Panther leadoff man Bailey
Rodriguez scored four times.
The Panthers visit Mercer
County rival Celina on
Thursday while Spencerville
hosts Minster that same evening.

Baseball season is here; cool!


Spring has sprung! Baseball has begun!
I know the weather right now doesnt seem
so but the spring sports seasons are underway
with baseball, fast-pitch softball and track and
field making their appearance on the calendar.
It is a sure sign that soon (who knows how
soon but soon) well be experiencing soft,
warm breezes and the sun on our backs and
in our eyes!
Weve already had some of the (pre-)April
showers that bring May flowers!
Then it will be the more-humid and
ever-warmer, even blazing days of June, July,
August and even September, then surely but
steadily the cooler temperatures of October
and November.
It then leads to the downright cold and
snow (usually) of December, January and
February and warming days of March and we
start right back here again this time in 2017.
Who needs the weather reports when you
have me?
I think I will be sad now!
Back to our time on this mortal coil called
Earth.
Major League Baseball kicks off next week
and it again offers an interesting year.
I think us Cincinnati Reds fans wonder
how looooong this season will really be when
the powers-that-be are even saying we wont
contend until 2018.
One has to wonder who from this team will
be on that team.
Among the stars, the only one I think we

Jim Metcalfe

Metcalfes
Musings
can be sure of is Joey Votto, simply due to
his impossible-to-trade contract outside of
Dodgertown, The Evil Empire or Boston.
Perhaps Brandon Phillips, who for his own
reasons, wants to stay in the Queen City but
even there, one wonders if he wont eventually waive his 10/5 clause if they are potentially as bad as they could be with a still-very
green rotation that remains very unsettled and
injured.
I think Jay Bruce will be traded this season due to being a free agent after the season
unless he takes a much lower figure than he
has now.
Zach Cozart, Billy Hamilton and Eugenio
Suarez will probably still be here unless
they too are traded as well as most of the
sophomore pitchers on the staff now.
We shall see how quickly Homer Bailey
rebounds from his surgery and if he ever lives
up to the stuff he has always had. If the
BIGGEST word in the English language, by
the way he does, he is a true ace and then
anything can happen.

The Herald 7

Southpaw Swift mows down Jeffcats


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

KALIDA A lot of baseball and softball games were


either changed in locales or
postponed altogether Monday
night due to the storms late
Sunday night.
One that went off was the
Jefferson at Kalida baseball
game at Kalida Elementarys
Holy Name Ballpark.
The Jeffcats faced another outstanding southpaw
Kalidas Austin Swift
and fell victim to a 5-inning
no-hitter, 10-0.
Its very hard to gain
confidence going up against
two of the top left-handers in
the area with Swift and (Van
Werts Ryan) Stoller Saturday.
We have good at-bats but no
success right now; we just
have to keep plugging away
to get there, Jefferson head
coach Doug Geary observed.
(Starter) Brett (Mahlie) gave
us good innings to begin with
and then we tried to piece it
together on the mound. We
were right there, only down
1-0 after three innings, but
then it fell apart. Again, we
just have to keep battling.
Swift, pitching Kalidas

Musings

opener, gave up a walk to


Jefferson (0-3) player Eli
Kimmetts free pass to open
the top of the third and
allowed a 2-out base-runner
(Jacob Pulford) via a 2-out
dropped fly ball in the fourth.
I was even impressed
by Austin tonight; I wasnt
expecting him to be so sharp
after such limited work outside this spring, Kalida head
man Joe Recker said. We
play Miller City next week
and they have been at the top
of the PCL forever; we wanted to get him some innings.
We played decent defense
and though we didnt hit the
ball hard, we were patient
at the plate. Were not near
where we want to be yet but
well work to get there.
He also fanned 10 in his
62-pitch (47 for strikes) outing.
Four Jefferson pitchers
accounted for 108 pitches (59
for strikes) that yielded a total
of eight hits, eight bases-onballs, three hit batters, a wild
pitch and 10 runs (9 earned).
They also fanned two.
Kalida took a 1-0 lead in
the bottom of the first with
one down. After Trevor
Maag got aboard on a fielders choice, he stole second,

(Continued from page 6)

Still, we know that team will mainly


be one for the young pups on the roster
now like Ivan DeJesus Jr. and
prospects management has been compiling for a while now.
There is some talent there and thus,
hope.
I am not the fan I once was as to
who all these guys are or could be.
You know the people that go to the
fanfests and caravans and such and can
ask management about the stuff the
seventh-inning set-up guy in the bullpen
in Single A Fiasco (I know there is such
a team but you get the picture) has and
when we will see him in the majors.

took third on a grounder and


scored on an infield hit to
deep short by Jeffrey Knueve.
The big outing was the
bottom of the fourth when
the hosts sent 13 batters to the
plate and scored seven runs.
They compiled four hits,
three walks two with the
bases loaded two hit batters, a sacrifice bunt and one
error. Seven different members of the lineup had one run
batted in. Kalida went from a
1-0 lead to an 8-0 spread.
They scored the game-ending run with one down in
the home fifth. Maag walked
to lead it off against third
pitcher Andrew Foust, with
Easton Siefker coming on in
relief. Swift walked and both
advanced on a wild pitch. An
out later, pinch-hitter Derek
Buss got aboard via a throwing error to plate Maag and,
after Austin Klausing walked,
Noah Lambert greeted reliever Dre Reed with a run-scoring force-out to center field to
get Swift home.
The Jeffcats returned home
tonight to host Riverdale.
Kalida without its
seniors, who will be on their
senior class trip plays at
Elida in a doubleheader 10
a.m. Saturday.

Or the backup rightfielder on the


Rookie League team in Walla Walla,
Washington.
You could say they have a little too
much time on their hands but on the
other hand, they are the ones that will
live and die with this team no matter
what, will go to as many games as they
can live and watch replays on FOX
Sports.
In other words, the real fans.
Maybe the Reds will contend by then
Kansas City and Houston had similar
rebuilding plans that were put into place
in the previous decade that have finally
come to fruition but boy, will it seem
like an eternity to get there for such a
proud franchise and fan base.

Plus, you never know what a team


not old enough to know they shouldnt
compete will do under the radar.
Just sayin
Just a note on the passing of alltime baseball great Joe Garagiolo last
Wednesday.
I grew up watching him on NBCs
Game of the Week I was too young
to watch him play since I was born in
1964 and he stopped playing a decade
earlier! with Tony Kubeck and even
later with Vin Scully.
We hope he can join his lifelong
friend and all-time great Yogi Berra in
Heaven and God can get a kick out of
them, too!
RIP, Joe.

New Delphos
Running Series
set for 2016
BY LARRY HEIING
DHI Media Correspondent
news@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS Now that Spring is officially here, organizers


of three local race events have united their efforts to form the
new Delphos Running Series for 2016 that will reward runners
as well as three area charities.
The series will kick off on Sunday, April 24th, with the
Organ Donor Dash 5K to be held at Delphos Jefferson High
School.
This is our fourth year hosting the race that raises awareness about the benefits of organ donation along with all proceeds going to Lifeline Of Ohio, said race director Deann
Heiing.
The second race in the series is the new Superhero 5K and
5-miler on May 14.
Participants get the choice of doing a 5K (3.1 miles) or a
5-miler, explained Karen Baldauf of host K & M Tire. Come
out in your favorite superhero costume or cape to support
Relay For Life for the American Cancer Society.
The running series wraps up in the fall with the Canal Days
5K to be held on Sunday, Sept. 18.
Our neighboring counties have a series of running events
so we are excited that Delphos will have our very own to
reward physical fitness, commented Diane Sterling. All
money raised during Canal Days is reinvested back into the
community.
This running series is another great way to celebrate
Delphos as our hometown.
By taking part in all three events, participants will receive a
special awards medal sponsored by Peak Community Fitness
for their efforts.
For further information or sponsorship opportunities, please
contact Heiing at 419-230-2963.

BY NATHANIEL SILLIN
During a particularly cold
winter or hot summer, you
open your utility bill with a
sense of dread. Is it time to
consider your utility companys budget-billing plan?
Maybe so, but do your
homework first.
Heres how a utility companys budget-billing plan generally works. Your chosen utility
company considers your energy usage patterns over a given
period, adds in projections
for their wholesale energy
costs and your regions future
weather patterns. Based on
those calculations, your utility
company comes up with an
average monthly payment that
allows a customer to even out
monthly utility payments over
a specific time, usually a year.
It may sound good, and for
many customers, it adds some
stability to their monthly bill
payments. However, heres
where a budget-billing plan
can go wrong. If you see that
fixed monthly payment and
think you dont have to watch
your energy usage at all, think
again. After all, your utility is
still reading your meter and
you might be in for a rude
awakening when your budget-billing period ends. You
might owe extra money.
Here are some questions to
ask before you sign up for any
budget-billing plan:
How well do you understand your current bill? Every
utility company designs its
bills somewhat differently
based on state regulations and
the type of energy product
being sold. Depending on the
community, a variety of utility
companies might be competing
for your business. Still, many
of us rip open our gas, electric or other energy bills without understanding the basics
of what were being charged
and why. But its important
to try. It makes sense to study
your local utilities companys
charging practices in general including those specific
to competing providers. Also,
if there are qualified energy
advocacy groups in your state
or community, see whether
they offer any specific advice
on local utility company practices and how to keep your
cost of service low.
Evaluate the budget-billing
plan closely. Ask the following
questions:
What happens if my actual
utility costs exceed the amount
Im paying each month on my
billing plan? As mentioned, your
utility company will continue
to measure your usage on its
metering system. If your usage

exceeds that budget estimate for


any reason, you could face what
amounts to a balloon payment
covering what you still owe at
yearend. If so, your budget-bill
plan may put you in debt.
Are there monthly or
annual fees in connection with
this plan? What are they and
what do they cover? Paying
anywhere from $5 to $10 a
month to be on a budget
plan should give you pause.
Understand any and all fees
before you pay them.
What factors go into setting my monthly average?
How many years of payments
go into that calculation, and
what other factors apply to set
the amount you want me to
pay? In the way many normal
utility bills can be a mystery,
so can your budget-billing
payment. See how well your
utility can explain how they
would set your bill.
If my budget bill and actual utility cost are getting seriously out of whack, do you let
me know, or is there a way I
can check that? If your budget-billing payment is actually
putting you in the red due to a
cold or heat snap or some other
factor, its best to know that
before the end of your term.
Are you building any
weather forecasting into my
budget-billing estimate? Are
you projecting any weather
extremes in the coming year?
Say I manage to come
in under your monthly budget-billing estimate. Do I get
my money back?
Consider an alternative
your own budget plan. Locate
your bills for the last year or
two and average your pay-

Nathaniel Sillin

ments, plugging them into


your monthly household budget. On the months where your
costs come in below your average, deposit the difference into
a savings or money market
account to cover future months
where there could be overages.
Its clearly an experiment
after all, no one knows whether the years ahead will bring
mild or ferocious weather or
how world events might affect
wholesale energy prices. But
youll be in control of every
dime and potentially earning
a little interest on anything
you dont spend. Your utilitys
budget plan probably wont do
that for you.
Bottom line: Utility budget-billing plans might be a
good idea for homeowners and
renters who want a little more
predictability in their monthly payments. But before you
sign, you really need to understand how your utility companys plan works.

10 Years Ago 2006


Jeffersons softball team
made a lot of strides a year
ago and even closed out
the regular season with
three consecutive wins.
It appears the Jeffcats are
picking up right where they
left off, toppling Van Wert
8-2 Tuesday afternoon in a
non-conference showdown
at home. Its great to start
off the season with a win,
Jefferson head coach Brad
Rostorfer said.
The St. Johns track and
field teams split their season open versus Shawnee
Tuesday night in Delphos.
The Lady Blue Jays defeated the Indians 95-80, while
the boys were bested 12448. Among those victorious for the girls were
Erin Calvelage in the
1600-meter, Rachel Miller
in discus and shot put,
Ashley Jettinghoff in the
400-meter dash, Victoria
Recker in the 300-meter
hurdles and long jump,
Jodi Leininger in the high
jump and Katie Grothouse
in the pole vault.
Reliable Plumbing and
Heating celebrated an open
house Tuesday, one year to
the date of the four-alarm
fire that razed the business
building. Reliable also
joined the Delphos Area
Chamber of Commerce
with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, including Chamber
Executive Director Diane
Sterling, Reliable owners
Bob
Jettinghoff,
Glenn Schimmoeller and
Tony Burgei, Chamber
Membership Chair Vicki

Gossman and Chamber


member Greg Berquist.
25 Years Ago 1991

Macwhinney, Derek Craig,
Todd Wulfhorst, Doug

Kalida

the rank of Eagle Scout at
a court of honor April 7 in

a member of Troop 221
since 1987. He is a member
of the Brotherhood of the
Order of the Arrow and
has been recognized as an
outstanding arrow. He is a
member of the Eagle Creek
Dancers, which competed
in the national Boy Scout

year in Indiana.
Three Jefferson Senior
High School graduates
were members of the
Bluffton College basketball
team this season. Junior

of Pat and Becky McClure
and is majoring in marketing. Mike Minnig, son of
Frank and Mary Minnig of
Van Wert, is a sophomore
majoring in mathematics. Chris Renner, son of
Norbert and Helen Renner,
is a freshman majoring in

elementary education.
50 Years Ago 1966
The cows may not
like it, but the long and
impassioned wrangle over
Americas summer time
clocks was heading the way
of history Wednesday. Only
the formality of final House
approval stood between the
White House and a bill to
set uniform dates for daylight saving time this year
and make it automatic next
year throughout the nation.
At the regular Tuesday
meeting of the Kiwanis
Club, program chairman
Rev. Warren Campbell
introduced
Rev.
Otto
Wortman, pastor of Trinity
Methodist Church who furnished the program for the
evening. Rev. Wortman told
of his experiences while on
a European group which
was on tour. President
Robert Schmit presided at
the business meeting and
club singing was led by
Frank Nick Wilson.
Two Fort Jennings
High School freshmen,
Patty Menke and Margie
Siebeneck, will have their
science displays entered in
state competition April 16.
Both girls received superior
ratings for their displays at
the District Science Fair
held March 26 at Bowling
Green, according to Fort
Jennings school officials.
75 Years Ago 1941
Delphos is to have a
new industry. This was
definitely decided late
Friday afternoon when a

lease was signed for the


Fidelis Johnson building,
North Washington Street,
for use of the N. Harris
Manufacturing Company,
now located in Detroit,
Michigan. Mr. and Mrs.
Harris, owners of the factory, plan to start moving to
Delphos at once. The company manufactures mens
and boys jackets, leather,
corduroy, wool and sports
jackets.
Delphos persons will
have
an
opportunity
Monday night to contribute
funds for the aid of Greek
war sufferers. The management of the Capitol Theatre
has voluntarily offered
to aid in the Greek War
Relief Drive along with
other theatres throughout
the country. The members
of the Phi Delta Sorority
have offered their services
in this humanitarian effort
and will be on duty in
the lobby of the Capitol
Theatre Monday night.
James Lange, student in
the junior class of St. Johns
High School, received the
first award for his essay
submitted in the local essay
contest conducted by the
Auxiliary of the Veterans of
Foreign Wars. He received
a medal and $5.00. Ruth
Granger, a senior at St.
Johns, was adjudged second high and received a
medal and $3.00. For placing third, Dolores Brickner,
freshman, received a medal
and $2.

For men and women


without symptoms of Zika
virus to wait at least eight
weeks after their possible
exposure before trying to get
pregnant in order to minimize
risk.
The updated guidance on
sexual transmission includes
new timeframes for men and
their non-pregnant partners
based on the couples situation and if the man has traveled to an area with active
Zika virus transmission. The
updated CDC recommendations are:
Couples with men who
have symptoms or confirmed
Zika should consider using
condoms or not having sex
for at least six months after

symptoms begin.
Couples with men who
traveled to an area with Zika
but did not develop symptoms should consider using
condoms or not having sex
for at least eight weeks after
their return.
Couples who are trying
to get pregnant should consult with their healthcare provider.
No vaccine exists to
prevent Zika virus disease,
so it is important to follow
CDC guidance, said Ohio
Department of Health (ODH)
Medical Director Dr. Mary
DiOrio. We still recommend
that pregnant women consider postponing travel to areas
with Zika virus transmission.
All travelers to Zika-affected
countries should take pre-

cautions to prevent mosquito


bites, which is the primary way you can contract the
Zika virus.
The ODH Laboratory is
doing Zika virus surveillance
testing to identify suspected
Zika virus infection in individuals within seven days
of symptom onset. ODH
expects to share initial test
results within 48 hours of
receiving the blood specimen with submitters, such as
doctors offices, hospitals or
local health departments.
Go to the ODH website
at http://www.odh.ohio.gov/
zika for more information
about Zika virus and links
to CDC resources including
travel advisories for countries
where Zika virus transmission is ongoing.

For the software, a device to map and
read asset location, a one-time set-up fee
for Microsoft Cloud services at $3,500 and
an annual licensing fee of $1,200 and initial
training of $1,000. The scanners cost ranged
from $3-8,000 depending on how close each
scanner could read the assets. The council will
be reviewing more systems in the months to
come.
Were in the very beginning of looking,
said the mayor. Theres lots of homework
to do.
The village recently completed the sale of
land to PSI and received a check for $86,000.
We worked will with PSI and PSI worked
well with us, Miller said.
Miller also reported to the council that,

according to the tax office, both PSI and


Miller Precision were doing very well.
Councilman Joe Moreno passed on a
request from the parish asking to use the villages maintenance garage to store raffle items
during the parish festival. Council agreed.
Moreno also spoke of the need for the
village to determine a better way to communicate with its residents in case of issues such
as a boil advisory.
Closing out the evening, council moved
to executive session to discuss a pay raise for
one of the villages utility employees, Chad
Knippen. Knippen is working on Class 1
certification in water and Class 2 certification
in wastewater. Depending on which certifications he completes, either one or both, council
agreed to step-up raises.

Trivia

Answers Wednesdays questions:


President Richard Nixon was at Disney World when he delivered his now infamous
line, I am not a crook. He said it while speaking at the annual convention of the
Association Press Managing Editors. The event was being held in a meeting room at
the Contemporary Hotel on the park grounds.
His kitten, Otto, got in the way of composer Andrew Lloyd Webbers completing a
sequel to his smash Broadway hit Phantom of the Opera. Webber had composed the
musical entirely on his digital piano and one day in 2007, the 6-month-old cat hopped
onto the instrument and managed to delete the entire score.
Todays questions:
Which shoe designers trademark style was inspired by a bottle of nail polish he
borrowed from his assistant?
What are the only two kinds of nuts mentioned in the Bible?

Mark Rau, right, the new executive director for Putnam


County Habitat for Humanity, is welcomed by Chas Myers,
who has served as the Putnam County affiliates executive
director for the past three years. (DHI Media/Nancy Kline)
ued growth and development
of the Putnam County affiliate
is an honor. Having spent the
last several years working with
individuals and families struggling in poverty, I believe in
the Habitat mission that every
man, woman and child should
have a simple, durable place
to live in dignity and safety,
he said.
Everyone sees the home
construction side of Habitat,
Chas Myers said, but they
forget that we are also the
mortgage originator for nine
families now. It is a lot of work
to service these nine mortgages
and our current volunteer office
manager and treasurer are volunteering nearly 50 hours per
week year round in the office.
Having someone on paid staff
will relieve much of the burden
on these volunteers.

Rau currently lives in


Fort Jennings with his wife,
Melissa, and their two children, Ryan and Erica. As for
the future of Habitat, Matt
said, Habitat is a great opportunity for all of those involved;
it is growing to meet the needs
of our county residents. The
homes and Critical Home
Repair projects that Habitat
offers are life-changing events
for the home owners, as well
as the volunteers. It brings
our communities together and
makes us stronger.
This year the Putnam
County Habitat for Humanity
is holding their first Apostle
Build. Twenty-two Putnam
County churches will join
together to provide funding,
volunteer labor and prayer support for this years build in
Leipsic.
