OTTOVILE Four-wheelers and dirt


bikes, quintessential toys of summer for speed,
noise and stunts, are lots of fun in the appropriate venue. But these particular toys can be
dangerous and destructive in the wrong hands
and at the wrong place.
With springs arrival, these vehicles are
being used in the park and at the villages farm
ground. All too often, the drivers are behaving
recklessly, driving at high rates of speed and
in at least one case, damaging village property.
During a discussion at Mondays council
meeting, it was noted that one driver was witnessed going airborne at the bridge in the park
and if someone had been at the other end of the
bridge, the four-wheeler would have hit them.

The village has posted no trespassing signs but


drivers are ignoring the postings as well as any
barriers or warnings.
In spite of repeated warnings, the reckless
behavior continues. It seems village officials
have had enough.
Enough with being polite, Mayor Ron
Miller said during the council meeting,
theyre not listening.
The machines are driven in the park and
along the river which runs by the park. No
one has a problem with drivers riding the
machines in either place but they must drive
at an appropriate speed. The mayor wants the
four-wheelers to be operated at no more than
10 miles per hour.
I dont want to see them flying, he
said. If it gets to the point we have to ban
four-wheelers and dirt bikes from town, we
will.

One of the reasons they ride in the park is


because there are grass-covered mounds available drivers can use to catapult themselves into
the air. In fact, one of the newly-seeded swales
has been damaged by a driver and has to be
repaired, at a cost to taxpayers, of course.
Officials do expect the four-wheelers and
dirt bikers to stay off the villages farm ground
and away from the waste water/sewer plant
area. Two reasons: first, farmers are getting
ready to rent the ground for spring planting
and they wont if the ground is all tore up
and they stand to lose crops to the damage.
Secondly, the mayor explained, theres a good
water well around the area there and should a
four-wheeler have an accident and gasoline or
other fluids spill out onto the ground, the well
could be contaminated, thus preventing the
town from getting the water it needs. Miller
said that was the best well and it keeps the

town in water.
There are also liability issues. Should a
driver get hurt, the village could potentially
face paying damages if it was determined that
not enough had been done to stop the reckless
behavior. While one young man did sustain
injuries, his parents understood the situation.
Ohio Revised Code stipulates that a vehicle
such as a four-wheeler or dirt bike must be registered and numbered. There are exceptions:
if the driver owns the property being driven
on, if the vehicle is used for agricultural uses
and used to travel from field to field unless it
is used on public land, trail or right of way; if
a non-resident is driving their own vehicle and
that vehicle is registered in their own state;
if the vehicle is owned by the state or other
government entity.
Drivers can be fined not less than $50 and
no more than $100 per violation.

Dozens attend community prayer service


Nearly two dozen community members gathered at the Veterans Memorial Park Sunday afternoon to pray for
Delphos, its residents and all who are mourning, ill or hurting in any way. The Revs. David Howell and Jane
Brown, Mayor Michael Gallmeier and Brother Bernie Schnipke lifted up prayer requests. The event concluded
with ice cream provided by the Brian Altenburger family, who also proposed the idea for the prayer gathering.
The effort was put forth by Community Unity, which also provides assistance to residents for food, school supplies and a weekly free community meal on Thursdays. National Day of Prayer observances will be held at each
Delphos school prior to the start of classes on Thursday and a community prayer service marking the day will
begin at noon at the Municipal Building on Canal Street. (DHI Media/Nancy Spencer)

DELPHOS Residents inside the city of Delphos


will see a tax levy renewal on the November Presidential
Election Ballot.
Delphos City Council passed on third reading Monday
a resolution approving placing the renewal on the ballot.
Because it is a renewal, it will not cost taxpayers any additional money. The levy raises approximately $168,000 per
year to the citys General Fund.
Several local groups approached council for approval for the use of city property and/or street closures for
upcoming events.
Brian Altenburger, this years chair for the Relay for
Life of Delphos, asked for the use of Stadium Park, the
Delphos Municipal Swimming Pool, the football stadium,
ball diamonds and other park facilities for the June 10
event.
We are excited to hold the event at Stadium Park this
year and we would like to utilize as much of the park as we
can for events, Altenburger said.
The Relay will be held from 6 p.m. to midnight.
Delphos Veterans Council member Rick Schuck asked
for a street closure for the annual Memorial Day Parade
at 10:45 a.m. on May 30. The route begins at the Delphos
Fire and Rescue Building and travels west to Main Street
and then north on Main Street to Veterans Memorial Park
at Fifth and Main streets. A program will begin at 11 a.m.
at the park.
The Kiwanis Club of Delphos also submitted written
correspondence seeking permission to use Stadium Park
and its facilities for the annual July 4 celebration set July
2, 3 and 4. The group also asked for North Street between
Canal and Jefferson streets to be closed from the morning
of July 2 through 7 a.m. July 5 and North Main Street from
Tenth Street to Pohlman Road on the morning of July 4 for
the annual Firecracker Bike Ride.
Council granted all three groups requests.

Parent of autistic son reflects on experience


This is the third story in a three-part series
on Autism Spectrum Disorder. April is
Autism Awareness Month, so this series
first defined what autism is, covered the
therapies available and now will give some
insight through a parents perspective of
what it is like to have an autistic child.
BY ERIN COX
DHI Media News Editor
ecox@timesbulletin.com
VAN WERT Shirley Etzler knew her
son was different than a normal child earlier
on.
One of the first signs came when he was
just 1 year-old. As he was playing with blocks,
he started building with them for the first time.
As any parents would be, Etzler and her
husband were excited for their son to have
reached that milestone in his life and they
clapped and congratulated him.
He started crying, Etzler said. I mean
full out bawling, screaming, crying and I
thought, Okay, stop congratulating. We let
time pass and the next thing that parents

would normally congratulate their kids for,


we tried it again and we got the same reaction.
The exact opposite reaction
of what is normal. It wasnt a
couple of little tears, he was
very visibly upset.
Etzlers son is autistic.
He was diagnosed with
autism spectrum disorder
(ASD) when he was 3 yearsold.
The earlier that you can
address any of those issues
with your child the better,
Etzler said. They refused
to diagnosis him before that.
We took him to a neurologist and even though I knew
something was wrong, they
refused to diagnosis him
until he was 3.
Etzlers son, whos name
is withheld in this story to
protect his identity, does not
look any different than anyone else, but he does not like to be around

many people, he has obsessive tendencies


and struggled with the intensity of his senses
that many autistic children
become overwhelmed with.
He doesnt have a lot
of those issues now simply
because they were addressed
through the years, she said.
After his diagnosis,
Etzler turned to Thomas
Edison for help.
We came running to
Thomas Edison, she said.
I love this place. Oh my
gosh, I love this place. All
the doors they helped open.
Etzlers son, who is now
20 years-old, had speech,
occupational and physical
therapy as a child.
He did not start talking
until he was 7 or 8 years-old
and learned sign language to
bridge the gap.
When he started talking,
it was very limited and still is very limited,

she said.
The sensory overload was where the therapy and Thomas Edison really helped Etzler
and her son.
I always took him everywhere because I
thought, How is he going to get used to things
if he isnt around them? I dont know how
many times I would be at the grocery store
or at Walmart and he would just have a meltdown, she said. Was it because of the fluorescent lights flickering? I dont know. Was it
because someone walked by and the perfume
or the cologne was just too overwhelming? I
dont know. But he would have a meltdown
and he would sit there, over my shoulder he
would go, and out the door we went.
He also had trouble sleeping at night. Etzler
would have to hold him when he went to bed,
otherwise he would toss and turn for hours.
The professionals at Thomas Edison School
taught her about weighted vests and blankets.
As soon as the vest went on, you could
see him breathe and it would calm him immediately, she said.

Museum adds Lunar Rover


Information submitted
WAPAKONETA

Students and staff from Ohio


Northern University (ONU)
will deliver a drivable, fullsize lunar rover replica to
the Armstrong Air & Space
Museum on Thursday. The
rover is the result of three
years of work by students
from ONUs Smull College
of Engineering.
The rover seats two, can
travel at 10 miles per hour,
and includes authentic accessories like an antenna and tool
storage. The Museum plans to
use the vehicle for rover outreach engagements, for special events, and to participate
in parades.
Its amazing that we will
now have this realistic and
working vehicle for outreach
events. I dont know how
many other museums can
drive their own lunar rovers,
said Chris Burton, executive
director of the Armstrong
Air & Space Museum.
Hopefully, this rover will
inspire the next generation of
engineers and astronauts to
pursue their dreams in science, technology, engineering, and math.
I would hope that seeing a
project like this would inspire
young kids in some way,
said Alec Flemming, an ONU
senior mechanical engineering major from Powell, Ohio.
If theyre interested in math
or science, they might say,

This is really cool. Maybe I


could do this some day.
The project posed numerous problems for the Ohio
Northern team. NASA
designed the lunar rover for
use on the Moon, in 1/6 of
Earths gravity. The museums rover would, of course,
have to operate in 1G. Tires
of wire mesh could support
the reduced weight on the
Moon, but would not suffice for streets on Earth. The
Universitys student project
manager and team members
needed to address each issue
to balance physics, financial
considerations, authenticity,
and other real-world limitations.
I hope the people who
encounter the rover are able
to experience exactly what
the astronauts felt, said
Eric Dicke, an ONU senior
mechanical engineering major
from New Bremen. We tried
to make it aesthetically as
close to the actual rover as we
possibly could.

Twenty-three
Ohio
Northern students spent more
than 3,000 documented hours
on the project. The project
spanned six consecutive
semesters and involved students in mechanical, electrical, computer, and civil engineering as well as the colleges new engineering education major. The rover cost
an estimated $19,000 to build,
with funds and materials
provided by ONUs Archer
Memorial Fund, the Ohio
Space Grant Consortium, and
Polaris Industries.
The lunar rover will join
its cousin Curio at the
Museum. Almost exactly
three years ago, the University
delivered a 1:4 scale working
model of Curiosity, the rover
currently exploring Mars.
Students in the T.J. Smull
College of Engineering at
Ohio Northern University
are improving the world by
finding new ways to design,
build and use technology.

Mercer, Jeffcats
blank Wayne Trace
BY JOE GILROY
DHI Media Correspondent
sports@timesbulletin.com

DELPHOS Jeffersons
right handed senior pitcher
Gage Mercer turned in a gem
of a performance on Tuesday
night in a 3-0 win over Wayne
Trace at Wildcat Field.
It took just 76 pitches for
Mercer to record his two hit
complete game shut out of the
Raiders.
Gage pitched real well
tonight; he has been good all
season long, but for the last
two or three starts he has been
on a different level, Wildcats
coach Doug Geary said. He
pitched well and he had some
help from our guys on defense
also. The fielders made some
timely plays when we needed
them.
Eli Kimmett got Jefferson
on the scoreboard in the second
inning. He showed patience
at the plate where he drew a
walk, then stole second base to
get himself in scoring position.
With two outs, Brett Mahlie
came to the plate and drilled
a high fastball back where it
came from for the RBI single.
That run turned out to be all the
Wildcats needed on Tuesday,
though the Wildcats tacked on
some insurance in the third
inning.
Jacob Pulford stepped to the
plate and blasted a line drive
to deep right center to drive in
Jace Stockwell for Jeffersons
second run of the day. Pulford
then scored on another double,
this time from the bat of Jordan
Boop.
Aside from Mercers strong

pitching, the stat of the game


was 5-for-6. The Wildcats had
their leadoff hitter on base in
five of the six innings in which
they hit.
When you are able to get
the leadoff batter on base it
opens up a lot of things you
can do in order to get him
across the plate, Geary said.
We would have liked to have
scored more runs, we left a lot
of guys out there, but it helped
getting that first guy on base.
Mercer allowed only one
walk to go with the two hits.
He struck out three.
We were able to get the bat
on the ball quite a bit today,
unfortunately everything was
going right in the direction of
a Jefferson player. Then there
were a few times the centerfielder made some amazing
plays on the ball, Raiders
coach Ryne Jerome said of his
teams inability to get anything
going. Im not disappointed
in my team; we fielded well
and pitched well, just some
days it is not meant to be and
that day was today for us. All
credit goes to the Wildcats and
Mercer, they made the plays
that were there and won the
game.
Physically, my arm felt
good, but my stomach was a
mess all game, Mercer said
following the game. I ate
too many sugar cookies right
before the game. Seriously
though, I am just thankful for
the guys on this team, they
backed me with great plays
when needed. I feel really good
and strong right now; I had a
few arm issues early in the year
and the past few weeks coach

has turned me loose on the


mound and things have come
along.
Jefferson is now 6-15 this
year. They will host Bluffton
to open the Division III tournament on Saturday.
I like where we are as
a team right now. We have
played 21 games over a very
short period of time, so we
have not gotten the practice
time we needed, Geary said.
The pitching is looking stronger and the hitting is coming
along well. We are coming
together as a team at the right
time of the year.
The loss brings Wayne
Traces record to 6-11. The
Raiders will begin tournament
play by facing Evergreen on
Saturday in Haviland.

The Draft
went well or didnt!
By JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com
This column was written in response
to Thursdays first round of the National
Holiday - er, the NFL Draft.
Any surprises?
It is most interesting to see how
active the new-look Cleveland Browns
and their analytics-driven new leadership group has been so far.
It reminds me of Trader Jimmy
Johnson when he really set about
rebuilding the Dallas Cowboys.
I understand that was in the days
before free agency and the salary cap but
I think even the most rabid Boys haters
would admit he built one heck of a deep
and talented team.
This is supposedly the wave of the
future and I suppose with the Browns
recent track record with the old way of
doing things, you have to try something
different; you cant do any worse and
you just may have success.
Can you?
I think a speedster like Corey Coleman
well-versed in route-running and with
the needed speed to stretch and open up
the field is a good first step.
You might say they got lucky not
picking him at 8 and him being there at
15 with all the emphasis on quarterbacks and wide receivers in todays NFL
but perhaps that is one of the ways
the analytics works.
Ill be honest, I dont know a lot
about it hey, Im old-school when it
comes to football but with the younger generation and its Iphones, Ipads,
Ipods, whatsawhozits and such, they
seem to get it and like it.

Jim Metcalfe

Metcalfes
Musings
For now!
My Cowboys actually made a pick
Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott
at 4 that makes (some) sense.
After all, Tony Romo cannot keep
taking the beatings he has been, so he
needs help to take some of the pressure
off.
Two, anyone that thinks they didnt
catch lightning in a bottle with Darren
McFaddens relatively healthy 2015 and
thinks it will happen again is delusional.
Three, Alfred Morris WAS a Pro
Bowler years ago with the Redskins.
Now, the only way he will be a pro
bowler is to go on that tour.
Is Jerry Jones getting some advice as
to building a team?
All bets are off if he reverts to form
and tries to keep building certain segments of his team that they have been
trying to do so for years and keep having
to build!
And no, I am not even going to go
there and saying its the new Big 3 in
Big D.
That first one: Emmitt Smith, Troy
Aikman and Michael Irvin; was pretty
darn special, all ending up in Canton and
possessing multiple Super Bowl rings.
I wont compare Elliot, Romo and
Dez Bryant with them, as some already
are.
Romo might end up there with his
stats but his post-season blahs leave a lot
to be desired.
Bryant may not even be in Dallas
with all the posturing and such both
sides are doing.
Elliot is only a rookie.
Ill pick this back up next week maybe!

Heitkamp, Tigers stifle Jays


DHI Media Staff Reports
sports@timesbulletin.com

VERSAILLES One hit


and one unearned run.
That was all St. Johns
left hander Jacob Youngpeter
allowed in a Midwest
Athletic Conference game
at Versailles on Tuesday.
Despite striking out eight
Tigers in 3 2/3 innings of
work, Youngpeter took the
loss in a 3-0 Versailles win.
As good as Youngpeter
was, Versailles hurler Jacob
Heitkamp might have been
better. He used only 84 pitches in scattering seven hits on
Tuesday. He didnt walk a
batter and struckout six in his
complete-game gem.
The Jays stranded six run-

ners in the game, including


four in scoring position. St.
Johns had its best chance in
the second inning, when Eric
Vogt and singled and Aaron
Reindel doubled to open the
inning, but Heitkamp wriggled off that hook with a
ground ball, a pop up and a
ground ball.
Two of the Tigers three
runs were unearned.
The Jays visit Jefferson
on Wednesday as the teams
attempt to play a game that
has already been postponed
twice this season.

O-G
hammers
Ottoville
BY CHARLIE WARNIMONT
Sentinel Sports Editor
sports@putnamsentinel.com
OTTOVILLE Hitting the
softball hasnt been a problem
for Ottawa-Glandorf this spring.
Getting runs with those hits has
been another story.
Monday evening at Ottoville,
the Lady Titans were able to
accomplish both.
Ottawa-Glandorf
scored
more runs than they had hits
Monday as the Titans claimed
their first win of the 2016 season
with a 19-4 non-league win over
Ottoville. O-G moves to 1-12 on
the season, while the Big Green
dropped to 0-10 on the season.
We have been hitting the ball
all year, but we just havent been
able to get the runs, O-G head
coach Keith Fischer said. Today
it just kind of gelled for us. We
were able to get the hits and score
runs with them. The girls have
worked so hard all year and to get
our first win of the season, we are
proud of their accomplishments.
Ottoville scored first as they
banged out four first inning singles on their way to two quick
runs. Bethany Maag and Maizee
Brinkman gave the Big Green a
2-0 lead with a pair of two-out
singles to score Taylor Boecker
and Kasey Knippen, respectively.
O-G didnt wait long to overcome their deficit as their first
four batters reached that led to
three runs.
Emily Annesser and Brooke
Kleman opened the Titan first
inning by working walks before
Kylie Gerdemans single to
left-center made it a 2-1 game.
Kleman tied the game at 2-2
as she scored on a wild pitch
and Gerdeman scored as Karlee
Bellmans infield grounder was
misplayed.
After Bellman retired the Big
Green in order in the second
inning, the Titans sent nine batters to the plate in the bottom of
the second to score five runs and
take control of the game.
Rachel Warnecke started the
inning with a single and moved
to second on a wild pitch. After
an out, Annesser reached on an
infield single and stole second
before Kleman worked her second walk of the game. Gerdeman
plated two runs with a double to
left-center. Bellman plated a run
on her groundout to the pitcher
before a single by Bailey Cramer
and a double by Cassie Schroeder
made it an 8-3 game.
Ottoville got two runs back
in the top of the third as Taylor
Boecker and Alena Horstman
were hit by pitches to start the
inning and used stolen bases
to get into scoring position. A
groundout by Knippen allowed
Boecker to score and a throwing
error by O-G allowed Horstman
to score.
After the third inning,
Bellman settled in to allow just
one more Ottoville base runner
the rest of the game.
Ottawa-Glandorf broke the
game wide open in the bottom
of the fourth as they sent 15
batters to the plate to score 11
runs. The inning started innocently enough as the first batter groundout before the next
11 Titan batters reached base.
O-G banged out eight hits in the
inning with the big blow being a
bases loaded double by Annesser
that plated three runs. Kleman
followed with an RBI double,
while Cramer and Leanna Zynda
both had RBI singles. Brooke
Beach and Warnecke both had
RBIs in the frame, while errors
and wild pitches helped account
for the other runs.
Brittany Bowersox took the
loss for Ottoville. Boecker had
two hits and an RBI for the Big
Green.

Fort Jennings Envirothon Team 1 includes, from left, Alex Sealts, Ryan Hoersten, Drew Grone, Adam Howbert and

St. Johns Elementary School student Caden Meyer was
recently inducted into the AAA School Safety Hall of Fame.
(Submitted photo)

Meyer honored
for dedication
to traffic safety
Information submitted

DELPHOS Delphos St. Johns School student Caden


Meyer is among the newest inductees into the AAA School
Safety Patrol Hall of Fame. AAA Ohio Auto Club selected
Meyer and nine other students, out of more than 4,600 Ohio
school safety patrollers, to be part of this elite group.
Delphos St. Johns School AAA School Safety Patrol advisor
Miriam Scherger nominated Meyer for this honor with a glowing letter of recommendation.
Caden exhibits great interest in traffic safety and is courteous
to all he assists at crosswalks on a daily basis, said Scherger.
When asked why he thinks he was nominated, Meyer said I
think I was nominated for the AAA School Safety Patrol Hall of
Fame because I signed up to serve almost every day in the first
three quarters.
The AAA School Safety Patrol was founded in 1920, and is
the largest safety program in the world, with 635,000 Patrollers
in 33,500 schools all wearing the familiar Lectric Lime belts
or vests. Student patrol members are typically in fourth, fifth or
sixth grade, and are leaders in their schools. These students volunteer their time to help their peers make it to and from school
safely.
Each year, AAA Ohio Auto Club selects up to 10 school
safety patrol students to be part of the AAA School Safety Patrol
Hall of Fame, as a way to acknowledge top patrol students who
exemplify the spirit and purpose of the AAA School Safety
Patrol.
School Safety Patrol Hall of Fame inductees were honored
April 24 during a special recognition at Huntington Park in
Columbus. Hall of Fame students and advisors received free
game tickets and certificates for their achievements.
Patrol students from across the state were also invited to
attend the game. All students had a chance to parade around the
bases before the game.

Fort Jennings Envirothon Team 2 includes, Aaron Sealts, Connor Hoersten, Abby VonSossan, Jeremy Smith and Isaac

Good Vibrations

"Odds Are"

By Ed Clark

The music that moves us ...


Ladies and Gentleman, The
Beatles! Ed Sullivan (The Ed
Sullivan Show) introduces the
band to America the evening of
Feb. 9, 1964. John Lennon, Paul
McCartney, George Harrison
and Ringo Starr played five
songs that evening: All My
Loving, Till There Was You,
She Loves You, I Saw Her
Standing There and I Want
To Hold Your Hand.
73 million people, 60 percent of the televisions in
America, tuned in that evening
marking a cultural pivot point
for the Baby Boomer generation. This was to be the biggest
pop music splash of them all.
The bands impact is and was
mind numbing.
Consider just a few Beatles
facts from ign.com:
The Beatles have enjoyed
the most number one hits on
the US singles chart. The group
notched up 20 number one hits
between 1964 and 1970.
The most No. 1 albums in
the US chart by a group is 19,
by The Beatles. Their chart-topping tally is more than double
the number of those held by
Elvis Presley and The Rolling
Stones, with nine.
The most successful songwriters in terms of number one
singles are John Lennon (194080) and Paul McCartney (born
June 18, 1942). They co-wrote

23 US No 1 singles. McCartney
is credited as the writer on a
total of 32 number one hits in
the US to Lennons 26, whereas
Lennon authored 29 UK number ones to McCartneys 28 (25
co-written).
Lennon and McCartneys
Yesterday had 1,600 versions
recorded between 1965 and Jan.
1, 1986.
Headlines 1964-70
1964: US Surgeon General
concludes that cigarette smoking causes cancer.
1965: Tom & Jerry cartoon
debuts on CBS television.
1966: The real Batman TV
show debuts on ABC, Same
Bat time, same Bat channel!
1967:
The
Public
Broadcasting Act of 1967 gives
us PBS
1968: Bobby Kennedy

Crossword Puzzle

and Martin Luther King Jr are


assassinated
1969: Founder Dave
Thomas opens the first Wendys
in Columbus, Ohio.
1970: May 4, National
Guardsmen open fire killing
four students at Kent State
University.
Most music insiders point to
April of 1970 to mark the break
up of the band. The Beatles
phenomenon from 1964-70 is
seemingly without comparison.
What musical group provided
the most musical pleasure for
the most people for the most
time? An argument for these
four Liverpool lads holds up.
Uncle!
Good Vibrations.

(StatePoint) Mothers Day is all about


making Mom feel
amazingly special. And
what better way than
with a thoughtful gift
created with her unique
style and personality in
mind?
Whether you opt
for something extravagant or something shell
use all the time, when
you personalize a gift,
you know youre getting something no one
else selected for their
Mom, says Christopher Warnack, director
of marketing at Things
Remembered, a leading
retailer of personalized
gifts.
More than a quarter of all Mothers Day
shopping takes place at
specialty stores, according to recent National
Retail Federation statistics. And its no wonder
-- these stores specialize
in distinct and unique
items your mother
wont soon forget.

SAGITTARIUS
Nov 23/Dec 21
Restlessness can
get the better of you
this week, Sagittarius. Just dont jet off
on some spur-of-themoment trip to try to
channel your energy.
You have things to
handle first.
CAPRICORN
Dec 22/Jan 20
Finding yourself in
the middle of a sticky
situation has you trying to discover a solution to a complicated
problem, Capricorn.
You might need to
distance yourself for a
little while.
AQUARIUS
Jan 21/Feb 18
A
disagreement
with a friend or family member could turn
your schedule upside
down for a little bit,
Aquarius. Youll get
back on track soon
enough and resolve
your issues.
PISCES
Feb 19/Mar 20
Pisces,
getting
your finances in order
will take more than
balancing your checkbook. It might be time
to make some cuts
and follow a budget.

Must be available daytime hours.

With 50 years of
experience
helping
people create gifts and
accessories, the experts
at Things Remembered
are sharing some ideas
for creating unforgettable personalized Mothers Day gifts.
Practical
Sometimes the best
gifts are the ones the
recipient will use most.
But practical doesnt
have to mean plain.
Whether Mom loves
to cook or its Dads
duty, theres probably a
great recipe she loves.
A cutting board personalized with a favorite
family recipe makes a
beautiful addition to
any kitchen. And if she
cant get going without
her morning coffee,
a Contigo travel mug
personalized with a fun
message written for her
will put a smile on her
face, even on Mondays.
Fashionable
For fashion-forward
mothers, complement
her sophisticated or
quirky fashion sense
with a one-of-a-kind
handbag. A leather tote
bag personalized with
a monogram in shiny
gold foil will upgrade
her daytime style. And
to help her stand out
from the crowd at night,
accessorize her eveningwear with a leather and gold medallion
purse with her engraved
monogram.

ESTATE AUCTION
Thursday, May 26, 2016 @ 6:00 PM
Country Home & 1.7 acres
Nellie Balyeat Hoghe Estate

(StatePoint) In an age of constant communication and connectivity, it can be difficult to take a


break. But drive time is when
your phone should take a backseat to safety, say experts.
You dont need to be texting
to be distracted by your phone,
says Kelly Nantel, vice president
of communications and advocacy
at the National Safety Council.
Even hands-free talking is a major distraction.
Research indicates drivers
using handheld and hands-free
phones only see about 50 percent
of all the information in their
driving environment. This phenomenon is known as inattention blindness, similar to tunnel
vision.
While multitasking is valued
in todays culture, researchers
find that the human brain doesnt
actually perform two tasks at the
same time but rather switches
attention between tasks. At your
desk, this can be an effective and
efficient way to work, but behind
the wheel, multitasking can be
deadly.
From checking GPS, to firing
up a drive time playlist, there
are countless smartphone-related reasons why people take their
mind off the road. And newer
in-vehicle systems allow drivers
to call, text, email, update social
media and browse the Internet,
despite research showing these
systems cause distraction that can
linger after the driver finishes the
task.
One of the major reasons drivers today are so distracted is one
of the most surprising -- pressure from your family. Indeed 82
percent of Americans feels their
family pressures them the most
-- above friends or employers -to drive distracted, according to a
recent NSC survey.

It is a sad irony that the people we love are actually jeopardizing our safety the most, says
Nantel. If you really care, dont
call to say, I love you, instead
encourage your family to set everything else aside, disconnect
and focus only on the road.
To prioritize safety and reduce
your risk of being involved in a
crash, turn your commute into
me time, and your car into
a safe sanctuary. The National
Safety Council is offering some
tips to take back your drive.
Turn off your phone when
you get in the car.
Tell your family (and anyone
else expecting to hear from you)
that you will be driving and will
call or text them when you are
parked at your destination.
Send emails and texts before
you start driving.
Return the favor. When
friends, family or colleagues are
driving, refrain from placing distracting calls or sending texts.
Driver
distractions
have
joined alcohol and speeding as
leading factors in fatal and serious injury crashes. In recent
years, thousands of people have
died in crashes when drivers used
cell phones.
The issue has started capturing the attention of political leaders nationwide and some are taking action to improve laws that
promote safe driving, though no
law goes far enough, say safety
experts, because no law prohibits hands-free use. To learn more
about the dangers of distracted
driving and efforts to end this
public health crisis, visit distracteddriving.nsc.org.
Driving contains enough risk.
So put the phone away and encourage those you love to do the
same.

(Continued from page 1)


Council heard on first reading an ordinance amending the citys rates for emergency medical services. The
rates are revisited annually to make sure they are in line
with the Milliman Medical Index.
A water/sewer adjustment request tabled at the
last council meeting was brought back to the table
Monday. The property owner at 1200 Rose Avenue
requested an adjustment for a $1,222 water bill and a
$1,520 sewer bill. Notes on the accompanying paperwork gave councilman little information as to why the
reading was so high and water department employees
indicate the next reading was normal as were subsequent readings.
Safety Service Director Shane Coleman had no new
information on the request other than the meter seems
to be working properly. Council passed the request 4-3,
with Councilmen Tim Daley, Josh Gillespie and Tom
Grothous giving the dissenting votes.

Etzler also learned about the helpfulness of


a daily schedule from the teachers at Thomas
Edison.
Every hour of the day was on a check-off
sheet and wed get through the hour and hed
check it off, she said. There was a time to
read, a time to watch TV, a time to play with
toys, a time to play outside, a time to take a
bath. Everything was scheduled and as long
as he could read it on that schedule there was
never a problem.
Throw something in the mix that wasnt on
the schedule or try to write something on the
schedule at the last minute, he wasnt stupid,
Etzler laughed. Weve gotten away from the
schedule now. Hes 20, he doesnt adhere to
a schedule even though the more regimented
things are the better he runs.
One aspect of his life that has not changed is

Trivia

Answers to last Saturdays questions:


Snakes are ovoviviparous. They reproduce by forming eggs
inside their body, and those eggs then hatch while still in the mothers
body. The offspring remain inside the mother for a time before being
birthed.
The Beatles song Yesterday had the working title Scrambled
Eggs before Paul McCartney settled on the final lyrics. The second
line of the song was also originally written as Oh, my baby how I
loved your legs.
Todays questions:
Federal prisons banned smoking in 2004, making cigarette trading
a thing of the past. What has replaced cigarettes as the primary currency among inmates?
What cologne do researchers use to attract wild cats to cameras
theyve set up in the wild?

his obsessive tendencies.


He is obsessed with Thomas the Train.
If you ask him about it hes completely
embarrassed, she said. He has two or three
of each video Thomas the Train has put out
and Id be ashamed to guess how many trains
he has.
He also is obsessive about cleaning.
He cleans everything, she said. In his
bedroom he goes through a bottle of Windex a
week. Is his room that dirty? No, but its definitely that clean.
He will run the sweeper for hours.
It used to really irritate me then I thought,
Well youre just about stupid. Shut up,
Shirley, she laughed.
For Etzler she has learned to pick her battles
with her son about trying to stop him from
obsessive tendencies like that.
He has come a long way from the days of
his childhood.

(Continued from page 3)


In the historic homes guests can
wash dandelion greens, churn butter, grate horseradish, make corn
cob jelly and candied violets. Spring
cleaning is fun at Sauder Village
with hands-on activities including
white washing, rug beating, tick
bed cleaning, window washing and
even using a push lawn mower
at the 1920s Grime Homestead.
Throughout the day guests can try
hand carding wool, spinning with
a drop spindle, weaving, embroidery and making cordage bracelets.
Other fun activities include book
readings for our youngest guests
and playing fun games like marbles,
croquet and a scavenger hunt!
Performances by special guest
Bob Ford are also a traditional
part of this family event. A folk
musician from Cedarville, Ohio,
Bob Ford has been a recognized
performer in the Historic Village
for many years. Bob brings history

I dont miss those days, she said.


Her son works at the bowling alley three
days a week for two hours to make a little extra
money that he loves to spend just like everyone
else.
He also works at the workshop at the
Van Wert County Board of Developmental
Disabilities five days a week.
Its better for him mentally when he comes
in to work five days a week, even though he
doesnt work most of the time when hes there.
He still has the ability to socialize which is
wonderful, Etzler said.
Its the only place on the planet where he is
voluntarily social, she continued. Anywhere
else he doesnt care about people, but out here
he is almost comfortable around people like
him. He jokes with people and tells stories and
just interacts willingly where he does not do
that anywhere else.

to life through songs and stories.


Weather permitting he will perform
at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
We are always pleased to welcome Bob Ford back to Sauder
Village, Krieger added. Bobs
folk-song performances always
bring smiles and laughter from the
crowd.
Also new this year, there will
be flax processing demonstrations
in the Harvesting Building. From
10:00 a.m. noon and 1:00 4:30
p.m. guests will be able to learn
about the history of flax processing starting with seeds, harvesting

flax on display and craftsmen available to help answer questions about
flax processing.
