Gambling dollars boost school budgets

DELPHOS Ohio Casino


Control Commission released the
March 2016 Revenue Report for
Ohio casinos on Thursday. The casinos are taxed at 33 percent of their
revenue and 34 percent of that goes
to schools all across the state on a
semi-annual basis. All 88 counties,
all school districts, the host cities, the
OCCC for their operations, the state
racing commission, law enforcement for training and the problem
gambling program also receive
a portion of the tax, said Jessica

Franks, Director of Communication


Ohio Casino Control Commission.
Fifty two percent of Ohio voters gave the nod to a constitutional amendment to allow casinos in
Ohio. The amendment required
each casino operator to pay a license
fee of $50 million per casino and to
make an initial investment of $250
million.
The four Ohio casinos: the
Horseshore in Cincinnati and
Cleveland and the Hollywood in
Columbus and Toledo; brought
in $211,366,400 adjusted gross
income. AGI is the adjusted gross
revenue minus any winnings paid
out or promotional dollars spent.

In fiscal year 2015 Jefferson City


Schools snagged $57,229 of casino monies, which ended up in the
schools general fund, said Brad
Rostorfer, Delphos City Schools
Treasurer.
Aside from that, Rostorfer also
said the state formula instituted at
the beginning of Governor John
Kasichs term will soon prove helpful to the district. The new formula looks at the actual number
of students in the district and not
the wealth of the district. The city
schools are still capped but by 2017,
they will finally be funded at or
close to the amount they should
be funded. The new formulation

unskews Delphos actual student


population and not the combined
wealth of public and parochial
schools, Rostorfer said.
We had a little downturn in
enrollment this year and that lowers
the formula. Next year we should
about break even, he said.
Rostorfer explained that when
the new formula came out, Delphos
City Schools was calculated to
receive a lot more money but the
state had to make adjustments and
consider other schools funding
needs too, schools the new formula
would hurt. In order to not harm
those schools, the new formula
capped the city schools, an amount

that runs five to 10 percent of the


budget.
The cap and the formula are
coming together for us, he said.
Next year, it should be about break
even.
Administration is breathing a little easier.
I personally am, Rostorfer
said. Delphos is a little different
and this year maybe we are talking
about an $800,000 balance (surplus). That represents about eight
percent of our budget. Most districts
would like to have 15-30-percent
for a safety net.

DELPHOS Big changes are happening at


Delphos City Schools. Architects Bradley Garmann
and Matthew Hibner from Garmann-Miller
Architects/Engineers in Minster showed school
board members and the administration preliminary
plans for the Career Connections Center being built
at the northeast corner of the existing high school on
State Route 66.
The center is possible through a $999,785 Straight
A Grant the district received through the diligence of
Jefferson High School teacher Missy McClurg. This
is the second such grant the district has received in
the last two years.
The 4,300-square-foot building will include four
spaces:
Audio Visual Room
Module Career Pod area tooled for a careerbased learning activity to mimic job-shadowing
experiences
A lecture area with seating
Future career maker space to explore STEM,
coding, green energy, etc.
There will also be two restrooms.
The center will be a field trip destination for
students in grades 7-12 for career exploration at
all education levels from high school diploma
to doctorate level based on the 45 jobs most in
demand in Ohio. For example: in the bio-medical
pod, a student will be able to design a prosthetic and have a finished product by using a 3D
printer.

Delphos Chamber looking for a chair for 2016 Market Fest


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

DELPHOS Organic,
locally grown, fresh as fresh
can be.
No matter what you look
for in fruits and vegetables,
chances are very good youll
find it local farmers markets.
Tara Krendl, executive
director of The Delphos Area
Chamber of Commerce, is
in the organizational process
for the farmers market in
Delphos.
It went well last year,
said Krendl.
In Delphos, it is called
Market Fest and included crafts and other vendors
in addition to produce. The
Avery Krasky plays among the produce in Facebook page can be found
one of the stands during last years Market at www.facebook.com/delFest in Delphos. (DHI Media file photo)
phosmarketfest/?fref=ts. Last

year, it was held in front of


Elite Naturescapes on Elida
Road east of Delphos.
The chamber is looking
to duplicate that success this
year. Currently, they are looking for someone to chair the
committee. If anyone is interested in getting the ball up
and running, get in touch with
Krendl. She said the chair
has to be a member of the
chamber or someone who has
applied for membership.
The corner of Market and
Pierce at the Trinity downtown is the place to go for
farm fresh goodies if you are
in Lima.
Were in the organizational state right now for
this year, said Jed Metzger,
President and CEO of the
Lima/Allen County Chamber
of Commerce. It will probably start a little later this

year, he said.
Last year, the market started in May, resulting in too few
fruit and vegetable vendors.
This year it starts in June and
continue into September in
order to attract more fruit and
vegetable vendors.
That seems like what people come for, he said. We
like the produce to be home
grown and local if possible.
Also this year, customers
be able to use Supplemental
Nutrition Assistance Program
at the market. Its good for
the customers and good for
the vendors.
We are certified SNAP
so we can offer the opportunity to people with limited
resources to use the resource
at the farmers markets, he
said.
Produce isnt the only
thing customers will find

at the Lima farmers market. Shoppers can find soaps,


breads, canned items, plants,
jerky and when you order it
ahead, cut up chicken.
If anyone is interested in
the market, Metzger said their
Facebook page would be up
and running soon and if someone wants more information,
please call the Chamber.
In Van Wert, shoppers
will find the farmers market
around the courthouse square
downtown, said Patti Stall,
administrative assistant with
the Van Wert Area Chamber of
Commerce.
It starts in May and continues through September from
9 a.m. to noon. Shoppers will
find fresh produce but also
other homemade or handmade
items as well, like food, jewelry and blankets.

Suspect a natural gas leak?


First, move your feet!
Then call when youre down the street.
Outside or in, detecting a natural gas leak is easy. To help you SMELL a leak from a gas line or appliance,
a familiar odor like rotten eggs is often added to natural gas. Or you might SEE blowing dirt, bubbling water
or an unusual area of dead vegetation. A leaking pipeline might also make a hissing sound you can HEAR.
Also, remember to call the Ohio Utilities Protection Service (OUPS) by dialing 811 at least two working days
before digging on your property. And if you suspect a gas leak walk away, right away. Once clear of the
area, call Dominion East Ohio, at 1-877-542-2630.

and rescue software
Information submitted

MARION TOWNSHIP
The annual meeting of the
Delphos Community Rural
Fire Protection Association
was held April 4 at the
Marion Township House.
In
attendance
were
President Dan Kramer,
Treasurer Bruce Kraft,
Secretary Terry Knebel,
Directors Charlie Buettner
and Dave Swick, Delphos
Fire Chief Kevin Streets,
Platoon Chief Roy Hoehn
and general member Doug
Geise.
President Kramer called
the meeting to order.
The main focus of the
meeting was the demonstra-

tion by the firefighters of the


new iPad/tablet computers
being used by the department.
The tablet computers utilize two pieces of software
that have increased efficiency
and reduced response time
for the department. The tablets are in all the primary
trucks and ambulances. It is
also linked to the personnels
personal phones.
Emergency reporting software allows reports to be finished when returning from
the hospital.
Also demonstrated was
Active 911 software. This
allows pictures to be sent
to ER doctors of the severity of a crash so victims

conditions can be better


analyzed for trauma. Other
features include GPS of all
fire hydrants and address of
incident. This also identifies other towns hydrants
if called on for mutual aid.
Personnel also can be scheduled as to when they are
available for duty, availability if needed when not on
duty, who is responding to
an incident and their location
and also reduces response
time. With a SAFER Grant,
the department is better
manned, has cut response
time dramatically and has
greatly reduced mutual aid
calls from other departments.

DELPHOS Organ Donation Awareness
month kicked off last week as high school
students from St. Johns and Jefferson learned
about the importance of the gift of donation.
So often we as educators get caught up in
the day-to-day operations of the school and
forget that to truly educate our students we
need to do everything possible to make them
well-rounded members of our community. And
what better way then helping them understand
how valuable organ and tissue donation can be
in helping save a life, St. Johns High School
Principal Adam Lee explained.
Amber Payne shared her experiences with
students about being a double lung transplant
recipient 11 years ago.
Thanks to someone saying yes to organ

donation, I am here today to talk to you,


Payne began. I also am happy to report that
I recently became a new mom via adoption.
Your age or health should not prevent you
from registering to be an organ, eye or tissue
donor.
Jackie Drury from Lifeline Of Ohio
informed the assembly that one donor has
the potential to save eight lives through organ
donation and can heal 50 more through tissue
donation.
More than 121,000 individuals are currently on the national waiting list for a lifesaving
transplant; sadly 22 of them die every day
because the organ isnt available, Dury said.
She then asked which organs can be transplanted? Students came up with the answer of
heart, liver, kidneys, pancreas, lungs and small
intestine.

kept busy with traffic accidents.
On April 4 at approximately 3:10 p.m.,
police were called to the scene of a backing
accident on North Scott Street.
According to reports, MyKenah Jackson,
16, of Delphos was backing from a driveway
at 432 1/2 Scott St. when her vehicle struck
the legally-parked vehicle owned by Rita
Melendez of Delphos.
Jackson originally left the scene after
checking the damage to both vehicles and
returned, telling officers that while she was
backing from the driveway, another vehicle
turned northbound onto Scott Street making
her feel she needed to back up more quickly,
causing the accident.
Jackson was cited for improper backing.
Another backing incident on April 4

was investigated. Edward J. Sellers, 36,

The NFL Draft is


almost here!
Jim Metcalfe
The
National
Holiday otherwise known as the
National Football
League Draft is
April 28-30.
Once again, it is
in Chicago after how
many years in New
York.
I kind of like that move.
After all, there are a heck of a lot more fans around the
country than just in New York.
Why is it only Jets and Giants fans get to voice their displeasure at their teams drafts on national TV?!
Put it in Dallas and watch the Cowboys partisans go berzerk every time Jerry shows his mug and they pick their usual
who are we picking? headscratchers!
I dont know if that is necessarily true for every team,
though, but I am sure fans like to just boo and get it out of
their system.
It will be interesting to see what moves will happen between
now and then, what major deals if any will get done.
Who will move up in the draft to get that one guy a franchise believes they really need to complete their team or
move down to stockpile more picks because they need a lot
more than one guy?
===========
Along the NFL lines, what to make of suspended Cleveland
Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon?
News of his purported failed drug test (marijuana) leaves
me and I am sure all Browns partisans scratching their
heads as to what is going on.
There are allegations about a leak of confidential information and you almost hope that it isnt true.
I do have a problem with this issue. You want to give people
the benefit of the doubt and have all the information and this
leak if true makes it hard to do that.
Lets face it: we all jump at it to prove a point, whatever it
is: this man should be booted from the game because he is a
menace; the NFL cant make up its mind and/or has a hard time
being consistent with its rules; whats the problem to begin
with about using a more and more legal product.
You can all insert your ideas on this point here.
He knew he could and would be tested at any time, so is this
the only time since his suspension he tested positive?
If so, is that something the NFL is taking into account
before they make a final determination as to whether he will
be re-instated?
Doesnt he have to prove he can keep his nose clean so
to speak before he should ever even think of seeing the
field again?
After all, isnt part of being a teammate about being trustworthy when the chips are down, of being there when things
are their darkest.
Anyone can be a good teammate when things are
hunky-dory but the true one is there when everyone else is
jumping ship.
Some sources are reporting he didnt even test positive
because of the way the test was structured.

St. Johns Jacob Youngpeter takes a cut at a Jackson Hobbs fastball during the first inning of Tuesdays MAC baseball
opener at Stadium Park. (DHI Media/Jim Metcalfe)

Jays, Tribe tied after 9 innings


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

DELPHOS With the way the


weather has been around Northwest
Ohio for the first three weeks of the
2016 high school baseball season,
coaches and teams are anxious to get
any game in.
The sunny and chilly weather was
nice enough Tuesday night for St. Johns
and Fort Recovery to open Midwest
Athletic Conference play at Stadium
Park.
Alas, with another pitchers duel
involving the Blue Jays and their foe,
this time the Indians, it went nine
innings and forced another suspension
(due to darkness) with the score tied 2-2.
It will be picked up right where it left
off at a date to be determined.
It is the second straight game for the
Jays suspended for that reason last
Tuesdays game versus Lima Central
Catholic.
Its frustrating for all of us. Its the
second straight game we have to continue and its hard to get into any rhythm

for anyone, St. Johns head coach Jerry


Jackson said. Whats worse is that this
was a classic baseball game with very
good pitching. There were some errors
but it didnt really hurt either team,
though they are things both have to
shore up. At this point of the season, we
all need to get innings in, get at-bats and
see live pitching on a regular basis.
The Indians got a runner on second with two down in the top of the
first against St. Johns lefty ace Jacob
Youngpeter on a 2-out single by Jackson
Hobbs and an error.
The Jays (3-0) got on the board first
in the home half of the opener versus Fort Recovery right-hander Jackson
Hobbs on a Troy Elwer leadoff slap to
center, a stolen base and a 1-out error on
Youngpeters bouncer. The latter got to
second on a 2-out steal.
The Indians tied it at 1-1 in the top
of the second on a 1-out knock by Kyle
Schroer, two steals and an error.
Josh Warnecke singled to left with
one down in the home second.
Fort Recovery loaded the bases with
one out in the visitor third on back-toback walks (Ben Homan and Hobbs)

and an error but two punchouts by


Youngpeter kept it at 1-1.
Elwer got aboard to lead off the Jays
third on an error on a third strike but was
caught stealing by catcher Chase Bruns.
Cade Wendel beat out an infield hit
up the gut to lead off the Tribe fifth and
ended up at third on an error on a pickoff
play but Youngpeter again shut the door.
Aaron Reindel got aboard on another
error on strike three with one out in the
home fifth but the Jays couldnt take
advantage.
Fort Recovery had runners at third
(leadoff single by Hunter Boughman
and stolen base by pinch-runner David
Will, plus a wild pitch) and second (a
2-out free pass to Ross Homan, plus
that wild pitch) against reliever Josh
Warnecke in the guests sixth but he
recorded the final out.
Fort Recovery went up 2-1 in the
top of the seventh on a 1-out infield hit
up the middle by Ben Homan, a 2-out
single by Jacob Homan and an error
on Boughmans grounder, scoring B.
Homan from third after his stolen base.

Our name says it all

start and get the win, said


Ottoville Big Green coach Ty
Wannemacher.
Ottoville got a good game
out of pitcher Zane Martin,
who was able to get four
strikeouts, including an
impressive run in the second
inning where he struck out
the side in order.
Martin said of his performance: I made a few
mistakes on the mound but
overall did pretty good. I got
a ton of help from the guys
playing in the field and when
they are making plays for
you, it makes you want to
pitch stronger for them. My
curve was pretty good today
and it feels nice to get a win
after all the cancellations the
last week.
Jefferson coach Geary was
not making any excuses: the
weather and the time off were

not factors. We went ahead


and practiced the whole week
and we really looked good,
so I am not really sure why
this happened. As you saw,
we only got four hits on the
board and we did not start
one of our seven innings with
a leadoff hit. This is the result
you will get when you are not
getting hits. We had a lot of
errors tonight but we average
four a game, so that really
was not uncharacteristic. I
am just disappointed with our
hitting tonight. We will work
on it and it looks like the
weather is going to be nice
this week so we will have
an opportunity to show that
we are better than we were
tonight.
Jefferson visits Perry

Bluffton.

RECEIVE UP TO

OTTOVILLE After
nearly a full week of no
baseball games, Ottoville
and Delphos Jefferson finally got back on the diamond
on Tuesday at Ottoville High
School.
It took most of the night
until the bats would warm
up this brisk evening as the
Ottoville Big Green went on
to beat the Delphos Jefferson
Wildcats 8-0.
What started out as a good
pitching duel quickly dissipated into a 1-sided beating
after the Jefferson Wildcats
removed Gage Mercer after
just three innings of work.
Jefferson coach Doug
Geary on removing Mercer
after three fairly solid

innings: Gage started out


strong for us but I got anxious
after that third inning where
he walked a batter and got
into some trouble. I guess I
may have gave him the hook
too early; he was able to get
himself out of that jam.
Ottoville was able to put
the game out of reach in the
fourth inning after a series
of errors, wild pitches and
walks.
After having six days off
without a game, I was concerned as to how our players
would perform. It is hard to
just hit a switch and turn
things on and off; I am sure
Doug (Geary) will tell you it
was not easy having that time
off and jumping back on the
field in this cold weather. I
am proud of the way my guys
responded, though, and was

MIDDLE POINT Lima Central


Catholic scored two runs in the top of
the seventh inning on Tuesday to snatch
a 5-4 win away from host Lincolnview
outside Middle Point.
The tying and go-ahead scored on a
botched double-play attempt.
Clinging to a 1-run lead with the
bags full and one out in the seventh,
Lancer reliever Austin Leeth got LCCs
Thomas Williams to hit a grounder to
short. Chayten Overholt fired to second
base for an out but the return throw to
first was wild and two T-Bird runs came
across.
The loss was pinned on sophomore
Ethan Parsons, who was charged with all
five runs (4 earned) in his 6-plus innings
of work. Kemler allowed three runs in

the first inning on Tuesday but settled


in after that, limiting the T-Birds to a hit
and a walk over the next five innings.
Weve got a lot of trust in him as
a sophomore; he played as a freshman
last year, Lincolnview head coach Eric
Fishpaw said. It was just a matter of
getting into a groove and getting on the
same page with Tyler (Richey). Im very
proud of his effort and Im disappointed
we couldnt get him a win on the mound
today.
Parsons walked LCC senior Jaret
Brown to open the bottom of the seventh
before Brown swiped second base when
Lincolnviews middle infielders charged
toward the plate on an expected bunt
attempt. The batter, Brayden ODell,
pulled the bat back and Brown broke
for second, which had been vacated by
the defense. ODell then reached on a
bunt single before Fishpaw made the
move to bring Leeth in to pitch. After

a groundout and a walk left the bags


full with one out, the Lancers needed a
double-play ball to escape with the win
but Williams grounder was softly hit,
forcing the defense to rush.
Lincolnviews offense fought back
from the initial 3-0 deficit by scoring
a run in the second, then tying the
score with two more in the third. Cole
Schmersal and Tyler Richey connected
for back-to-back singles to start the
home third, with Richey immediately
stealing second to put two in scoring
position. Derek Youtseys chopper to
third was mishandled, scoring one run,
then Richey came home on a sacrifice
fly by Jaden Youtsey to make it 3-3.
In the fifth, Richey was in the middle
of the action again. Overholt led off
with a sharp single and was bunted into
scoring position.

Tied Game

The Blue and Gold tied it in the home half of the seventh.
Eric Vogt was hit by a pitch and Jesse Ditto sacrificed. A strike
three in the dirt retired Warnecke but on the throw to first, Vogt
advanced to third, from where he scored on Reindel double to
right center. The latter moved up on a wild pitch and appeared
to score on a defensive mistake by the Indians on the third
pitch after but it was ruled to be strike three.
The Jays threatened in the home eighth on a leadoff liner
to left by Elwer. After he was gunned down at second on Seth
Linders attempted sacrifice bunt, Youngpeters liner to center
finished Hobbs, with Wendel on in relief. A 2-out rip to left
by Vogt loaded the bases but the Jays couldnt get the big hit.
Hobbs lined a knock to left center with two down in the
Tribe ninth and burgled second.
Reindel legged out a slow bouncer to third with one out in
the home half and a 2-out steal put him at second. However,
after Elwer was retired fro the final out, the umpires conferred
and ruled it was too dark to continue.
St. Johns visits Fort Jennings 5 p.m. today.

Musings
(Continued from page 6)
Still, why does this stuff
seem to keep happening to
this man? Why does he seemingly put himself in this position again and again, especially since he already has
these issues and the NFL is
apparently trying to go out
of its way to cut him some
slack?
After all, the NFL has
its rules that the Players
Association more or less
agreed to in its collective bargaining agreement.
If these are the rules, then
he is not doing himself any

favors.
It will be interesting to see
what transpires when all is
said and done.
I dont see the Browns
having a corner on this type
of athlete Johnny Manziel
springs to mind here for the
Browns because we all
know teams that have gone
through this stuff but it seems
that these are distractions they
do not need as they try (for
the trillionth time) to rebuild
this once-proud franchise.
Again, the players have to
trust one another to be there
before it will ever happen.

Jettinghoff realizing dream with


Wildcat boys hoops program
BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS Hopes and


dreams.
Jordan Jettinghoff had a
hope and a dream to return to
his alma mater to coach and
teach long before he completed his scholastic career
in 2010.
He got that wish Monday
night at the Jefferson City
Schools Board of Education
meeting when he was officially introduced as the new
varsity boys basketball head
coach.
He will be replacing
Marc Smith, who resigned in
March after 11 seasons at the
helm of the Wildcat program.
When I was a young boy,
that is what I wanted to do:
teach and coach at my alma
mater. This is such a great
school, community and situation, Jettinghoff began.
I graduated from here in
2010 and was an assistant
varsity coach here last year
and a junior varsity assistant
the year before at PandoraGilboa.
He knows the job he
already faces but is excited to
plunge into the job, he noted.
For example, there are a
a lot of great coaches in the
area I will be going against,
like Kevin Sensabaugh of
Spencerville and Jeremy Best
of Crestview. That will be
a challenge from the start,
he continued. What I know
I really have to do is help
players get through the grind
of a long season from
early November to what I

hope will be late March at the
State tournament and even
considering all the work you
have to do in the off-season.
Basketball is a year-round
sport anymore.
Not only that, but my
goal is to convince the players that all the hard work they
do on the court and that is
from the younger ages can
help you off the court: in the
classroom, in the community and even in your future
work.
On the court, what he really wants to instill is playing
the game a certain way.
I want my players to
come out every time and play
with energy, enthusiasm and
intensity. Other things can

which plated Overholt and
gave Lincolnview a 4-3 lead.
It was obviously not the
ending that we wanted but
thats a credit to LCC, Coach
Fishpaw said. Im just happy
that were improving, were
getting better, were scoring
runs and weve had better
at-bats than in our first three
games. We gave ourselves a
chance.

but if you do those things
on a consistent basis, everything else will come, he
observed. Those are things
Ive learned from playing the
game and recently coaching
the game.
I want to build the program from the defense first
using all those assets. When
you look at the teams we
have going to State every
year from our area, they may
not have the best offense but
they hold teams down to 35
and 40 points a game A lot of
what you do is off of the type
of players you have but you
can always play with intensity and with a lot of energy.
Thats true of any sport.

Basketball was the first sport


I loved, as young as the first
grade, but I also played football and baseball. Whatever
sport, I want to develop that
attitude in each of my players.
His offensive system is
pretty simple after that.
I want to build the
offense off defense in whatever system we will use.
What we have right now is a
lot of good, quick guards and
athletic posts that I think can
force turnovers and we can
go from there, he observed.
I want us to be aggressive
and attack the basket, get a
lot of offensive rebounds and
go right at our opponents in
whatever system or set we
use at a given time: 5-out,
0-in; 2-in, 3-out or what have
you.
His transition begins
immediately as the summer
beckons.
I will sit down with my
players, assess what we have
and spell out our summer
plans: open gyms, shootouts,
team camps and the like, he
added. As of now, we will
be going to the Hope College
Camp in Holland, Michigan.
We went there my last two
years of high school and not
only is it a competitive camp
but it helps build team chemistry. Everything else will be
figured out.
What we do as a team is
important but I want to stress
to the players how hard they
have to work as individuals
to get the team where we
want to be and convince them
that the hard work will pay
off in the end.

Delphos FFA Ag-Mechanics Team recently went to Parkway High School where they
placed 11th. The Delphos FFA team consisted of Caleb Haunhorst, Gavin Seffernick and
Brent Buettner. The team had to use various skills like arc welding, acetylene welding,
and drill bit sharpening. They also had to identify a variety of tools, fasteners, seals, and
bearings, wire electrical circuits, and cut and solder tubing. They also identified parts of
a diesel engine, fuels and lubricants and use a variety of other agricultural mechanic-type
skills. (Submitted photo)

Good Vibrations

"Nice to Hear That!"

By Ed Clark

The music that moves us ...


William Martin Joel, writer
of song, composer, gifted pianist. Known to most as Billy
Joel, the Piano Man (#25
1974). Billy Joel enjoyed the
success of 30 plus top forty
hits during the 1970s, 80s and
90s. He sustains a strong following of listeners, regularly
performs at Madison Square
Garden, and if you like a piano lead in a song, always
delivers.
A peek at the chart peaks:

Perhaps you can recall singing along to Movin Out,

working man.

At least he can polish the

In a 2014 interview Joel
shared insight on his song:
Ive seen friends of mine who
were pressured into taking a
job to take care of the family, and then they never fulfill
themselves - theyre doing it
because thats where youre
supposed to go. Everybodys
got something they love to do
or they should be doing - a talent. I see people wasting their
lives, not putting their talent
to that purpose so they could
have stuff: you get a Cadillac
and then youre fine. Joel accentuated this sentiment with
the refrain in the song, Mama
if thats movin up, Then Im
movin out.
William Martin Joel was
born in the Bronx, New York,
and had already been in several bands when just a young
teen. He dropped out of school
to chase his music dream. His
breakthrough hit was Piano
Man. Joel has married four
times, had bouts with depression and addiction, but when
he sits down at that piano, oh
my.

Five ways to save on an overseas trip


BY NATHANIEL
SILLIN
My neighbors and I talked for weeks about their
upcoming European vacation with their teenaged
kids. We discussed every
single place they planned
to visit. But when I
asked if they knew how
much their European train
and ground transportation,
smartphone data plans and
meals out were going to
cost, they shrugged and
said, Were not worried.
Thats the cheapest part of
the trip!
They might have been
right if they had planned
ahead. Sometimes its not
the airfare and hotel bill that
get you, its the failure to
monitor small expenses that
can turn into big ones in a
hurry. No matter where you
go, there are hidden money
pits. Thats why smart
money management before
you travel is so important.
Whether you meet or exceed
your budget depends on how
you plan and execute your
spending.
Consider these five tips
to help you conserve funds
in all major areas of vacation spending:
1. Start by sweating the
small stuff. Take some time

to do a bit of research on
basic expenses at the various locations where youre
planning to go. Talking to
friends can help and so can
travel magazines and sites.
2. Keep the costs of
ground transportation in
mind. The convenience of
cabs or rental cars will likely cost more and depending
where you go, some options
might be safer than others so study options like
reloadable city smart cards
or continental rail passes.
Paying individual ticket
prices for short hops or long
journeys can drain your budget. Also, consider traveling
at off-peak times of the day
to get cheaper rates on train
travel.
3. Know what it costs to
use your electronics. Youve
probably heard about people getting socked with huge
cell phone bills. To avoid
this, call your carrier before
you leave to make sure your
phone will work wherever
youre going. If so, check
if they offer an affordable international talk and
data plan. If not, consider
options like an international
SIM card a small chip card
that fits inside your phone
for specific use within that
country or a prepaid phone.

If youre downloading any


apps to supply maps, translation or reading material
on your phone or computer,
do it while you are home to
avoid chewing up international data at your destination. Also, be careful with
Wi-Fi. Many recognizable
global restaurants and fastfood chains offer the service
for free, so check before
you pay for it. Once youre
home, be sure to cancel
any international services
youve ordered.
4. Eat like the locals. The
Internet and the myriad travel sites it offers make it easy
to find good places to eat at
all price levels practically
anywhere in the world. But

eating food out can add up.


Focus on the cheapest and
safest ways the locals eat.
5. Travel insurance can
be smart money management. Lost luggage, missed
connections or a medical
emergency wont just ruin
your trip they can potentially wreck your finances.
Check your personal home
and health insurance to see
what they might cover on
a trip and back your protection with a leading travel insurance policy. Visit
websites that will allow
you to compare coverage
you need to select the best
option for you. Make sure
to check any travel insurance policy closely for any
exclusions or pre-existing
conditions that could void
your coverage.
Bottom line: Its surprisingly easy to overspend
when traveling overseas if
you dont do your research.
Take the time to analyze all
possible expenses large and
small before you leave. Your
travel budget will thank you.

Six simple tips to help


improve your credit

BY JOSH MILLER
A credit card is a simple fact of life for most adults. Are you
making airline reservations? Booking a hotel room? Renting
a car? Youll probably need a credit card to do so, even if you
plan to use cash to pay. Some employers even use credit reports
when deciding whom to hire. If your credit score isnt so great
(less than 600), youre probably paying higher interest on many
transactions. You may potentially even incur higher auto and
home insurance rates. Are you ready to start improving your
credit score? Here are some simple tips.
Tip #1: Pay the big debts down first.
Are any of your credit cards at or close to their maximum?
Pay them down first. Credit bureaus like to deduct points from
your score whenever your balance exceeds 50 percent of your
available credit limit. Better yet, pick a card with a high balance
and high interest to pay off first.
Tip #2: Pay your bills. On time. Always.
Once youve demonstrated your ability to pay on time for a
while, youll see your score creep up.
Tip #3: Consider keeping unused credit cards.
You didnt misread it. Is your debt high? Dont start canceling unused credit cards. Doing so will only cause your debt-tocredit ratio (see Tip #1) to creep up in the short term. Pay down
your debt first, and then cancel your unused cards.
Tip #4: If your credit score is less than 600, or if you have no
credit history, consider a secured credit card.
These credit cards are tied to a savings account that you
fund. The savings account is actually security for the card, so if
your bill goes unpaid the account can be tapped by creditors to
cover the debt.
Tip #5: Dont be in the dark!
Regularly check your credit report for free. Each of the three
credit bureaus (Equifax, TransUnion and Experian) are required
to provide you with one credit report each year for free. Visit
AnnualCreditReport.com to learn more.
Tip #6: Try to be patient.
Improving your credit takes time and patience. Youve taken
the first step so youre heading in the right direction!

Every time someone takes


their eyes or their focus off the
road - even for just a few seconds - they put their lives and the
lives of others in danger, said
Lt. Tim Grigsby, Commander of
the Van Wert Post. Distracted
driving is unsafe and irresponsible. In a split second, its consequences can be devastating.
Sending or receiving a text
message takes a drivers eyes
off the road for an average of
4.6 seconds, the equivalent of
driving the length of an entire
football field when traveling at
55 mph.
Ohio law prohibits all cell
phone usage for drivers under
18. Texting while driving is illegal for all drivers, as a secondary
offense.
Distracted driving is any
non-driving activity that has
potential to distract a person
from the primary task of driving
and increase the risk of crashing.
Distractions can be visual, taking eyes off of the road; manual,
taking hands off the wheel; or
cognitive, taking the mind off
driving.

50 Years Ago 1966


More than 24 boys and girls enrolled in the Delphos Jaycees Shooting Education Program
last Friday evening at Jaycee Hall. Tom Groves, general chairman of the project, stated that the
Jaycees were well pleased with the large turnout for the program. Co-chairmen for the project
are Charles Lauser, instructor, and Dick Best, facilities and equipment chairman.
Junior class members of Fort Jennings High School will present a three-act comedy, The
Family Nobody Wanted, at 8 p.m. Sunday in the high school auditorium. Cast members
include Ralph Elwer, Diana Schroeder, Tim Menke, Roseann Knott, Robert Gerker, Lois Von
Lehmden, Linda Kleman, Doyle Van Lehmden, Connie Gasser, Diane Norbeck, Judy Nichols,
Patty Wittler, Cheryl Wildenhaus, Ginnie Good, Ronald J. Mack, Robert Lause, and Ronald
Metzger.
Daughters of Ruth Class met Monday evening in the social rooms of Trinity Methodist
Church. The president, Mrs. Ferman Clinger, opened the meeting. Devotions were given by
Mrs. O. J. Truesdale. Mrs. Grover Kell gave the lesson. Hostesses for the evening were Mrs.
Jessie Danner, chairman, Mary Beamer, Mrs. Ralph Mericle, Hester Birt, Claire Griffith and
Mrs. Harold Swick.
75 Years Ago 1941
The Rev. Hilary Weger of Toledo, a native of Delphos, who is rapidly gaining renown for his
ability as an educator, has written Studies in Religion, a series of religion texts. This series
has now been transcribed into Braille by the Catholic Guild for the Blind, Boston, the first
machine transcription of any work into Braille by the Boston Guild. Father Weger has many
relatives and friends in Delphos.
Delphos bowling enthusiasts will find welcome news in the announcement being made by
Louis Rimer that his new bowling alleys will be ready for operation on April 19. Rimer recently
purchased the D. W. Heiss garage building at the corner of West Third and Canal streets and
work has been under way there the past several weeks in remodeling this room and installing
one of the finest bowling alleys in this district.
The members of the Delphos chapter of the Order of Eastern Star held their regular business
meeting in Masonic Temple Friday evening. The annual inspection will be held April 25. A
reception will be held at the Presbyterian Church at 5:30 p.m. and a dinner will be served at
6:30 p.m. The inspection will follow in Masonic Temple.

My purpose is to educate the community about donation


so they can make an informed decision. If someone dies and
is not signed up in the Ohio Donor Registry, the next of kin
must make the decision to donate, St. Ritas I.C.U. manager and Delphos resident Deann Heiing explained. Families
can still say no to donation if they lose a loved under the age
of 18. My advice is to communicate your wishes to be an
organ donor so your families dont have to decide for you.
Jefferson Principal John Edinger explained why he
thought it was important for his students to hear about
donation.
I enjoy the opportunity for our students to hear positive
life-changing stories. This is a perfect time for our students
to be educated on organ donation since they will be asked
about it when getting their drivers license. Hopefully they
will have a better understanding for their decision making
at that time and in the future, Edinger said.
The Delphos students were very attentive to our presentation and asked very good questions as several pupils had
family members affected by donation, Drury added.
Another activity planned as part of Organ Donation
month is the 4th annual Organ Donor Dash to be held on
Sunday, April 24. The 5K run/walk is the first race in the
new Delphos Running Series where participants will be
awarded a running jacket if they complete all three events.
We have organ donor families and recipients recognized
before the race takes off at 1:08 p.m. as another way to raise
awareness about donation Heiing added.
For more information or to add the name of an organ
donor to the race T-shirt, contact Deann Heiing at 419-2302963.

Accidents

Fire

(Continued from page 3)

(Continued from page 3)

Roy Pasco, 29, of Atoka,


Tennessee, was cited for failure to yield after stopping
when his vehicle struck one
driven by Samantha Klint,
18, of Delphos at approximately 2:33 p.m. Friday.
Klint was traveling eastbound on East Fifth Street
and attempting to turn left
onto North Washington
Street when Pascos vehicle
stopped at the posted stop
sign on Washington Street
and then proceeded to enter
the intersection.
Also on Friday, police
investigated a two-vehicle crash at the intersection
of Main and Fifth streets
at approximately 1:52 p.m.
According to reports, Irma
Ayers, 63, of Lima, was
traveling westbound on West
Fifth Street and approaching the Main Street intersection when a vehicle driven by Robert Baldauf, 69,
of Delphos, failed to yield
when turning left and turned
in front of the Ayers vehicle, causing the collision.
Baldauf was cited for failure
to yield.

Following the demonstration, Swick made


a motion that was seconded by Geise for the
association to purchase two additional tablets
for the department at a cost of $832. The
motion passed.
President Kramer thanked the firefighters
for their attendance and the demonstration.
The 2015 meeting minutes were read.
Swick motioned to accept the minutes as read,
Buettner seconded. Motion passed.
Treasurer Kraft gave the following report:
Expenses for the annual mailing will
be paid from association funds. The association mails each property owner within the
Delphos Fire Department service area outside
the Delphos city limits a card announcing the
annual meeting and requesting a donation to
the association. 1,067 cards were mailed in
2016 with cards still coming in with payment.
$58,387 has been spent since 2006 for
equipment and repairs to vehicles and equip-

ment purchased by the rural fire association.


The association pays for all maintenance and
repairs to equipment they have purchased. In
2015, the association purchased a blitz nozzle
for the department. The blitz nozzle sprays
water without needing to be manned and frees
up personnel for other tasks at a fire.
Geise agreed to accept a position as an
additional director.
The association was originally organized
in the 1950s to purchase a tanker truck for the
department. Since that time, equipment items
have been purchased on a regular basis for the
department. Some items include water tanker,
water rescue trailer and boat with air system,
wildfire grass truck, portable water holding
tanks for rural fires, first responder truck with
snow plow. It is the goal of the association to
spend all funds collected on the needs of the
fire department and EMS.
The next meeting of the association will be
held at 7:30 p.m. on April 3, 2017.

Speakers will also come to the center and
they will be filmed and put on the centers own
YouTube channel for anyone to see. McClurg
said this will be an opportunity for the community business and industry leaders to share their
expertise, job openings and let students know
what they expect of their employees.
Student activities can be saved to the Ohio
Means Jobs Backpacks, which are virtual backpacks filled with job and career interests, the
education, training and skills needed to get those
positions, budgeting tools, resume assistance
and more.
The building will be self-sustaining with a
solar panel system which will pay for the utility
costs of the building and more. The possible
locations for the solar panels include in yard on
the school grounds by the school sign.
Seven other area schools will participate
in the project, including Allen East, Apollo
Career Center, Crestview, Elida, Fort Jennings,
Lincolnview and Pandora.
Garmann said the brick on the building will
be matched as closely as possible to the brick on
the existing high school and windows will make
the building attractive.
Garmann said he hopes to break ground
in mid-July and have the building finished by
Christmas.
It was great to see the vision come to life,
McClurg said after the presentation. It looks
great and captures everything we were hoping
for.

City Schools for 21 years, most recently as a
Title I Reading teacher in the Franklin building.
He received his masters in school administration from the University of Findlay and did
his undergraduate studies at The Ohio State
University. Hohlbein is also a 1989 graduate of
Ottoville High School.
Im ready to advance my career in education, Hohlbein said. Im not going to make
any major changes. I hope to continue the
success both buildings have had and to build on
that success.
Hohlbein said he wont be doing it alone.
The staff and community are tremendously
important, he said. The staff goes above and
beyond and the community goes above and
beyond.

Budgets

(Continued from page 1)


Lincolnview receives two
payments annually from the
casino tax and for the school
year 2015/16, Treasurer Troy
Bowersock said the school
received $46,604 from a
payment in August 2015 and
January 2016. That money
goes into the general fund.
Bowersock said for the
last 10 years Lincolnview has
been flat funded by the state.
Its received $4,100,000 from
state funding but in 2016/17
school year, the school is
expecting a small increase
of one and one-half percent,
around $80,000. Increasing
expenses such as electric
bills will offset that one and
one-half percent, he said.
Regardless, Bowersock is
appreciative of the increase,
noting its always better to go
upward and not downward.
The increase is sure
not what wed like to see,
Bowersock said. Weve
been flat funded from the

state for about 10 years. It


affects operations in every
way.
With fewer pupils than
other local schools, Fort
Jennings School District
gets less from the casino
disbursements than other
schools. Superintendent Nick
Langhals said.
In the 2015/2016 school
year, the district received
$18,900. Like the other
schools, this money also
goes into the General Fund.
Langhals said the school was
doing OK budget wise.
Were doing OK just
because the last so many
years, even before I got here,
weve always watched the
budget close, he said.
In addition, the new funding formula has also benefited Fort Jennings. But
Langhals cautioned that the
formula changes a lot and the
school doesnt feel comfortable until it actually has the
money in hand.
