LIMA Ohio Gov. John Kasich
made one of his rst campaign stops
in northwest Ohio Friday, visiting
Wannemacher Logistics on Han-
thorn Road in Lima.
Kasich was quick to outline his
successes in his rst term at the helm.
When I started, the unemployed
in Ohio could have lled 3 1/2 Ohio
stadiums, he said. We have cre-
ated 263,000 private sector jobs and
given our workers back their dignity.
Having a job is a morale issue.
When Kasich took ofce in 2011,
the states debt was $8 billion. Today,
there is a $1.5 billion surplus.
We were carrying this huge debt.
We just had to sit down at the table
and decide what we needed and what
we didnt need, Kasich said. And
along the way, we cut taxes and
we are poised for more economic
growth. We not only have agricul-
ture and manufacturing, which are
doing great, we are also involved in
energy and are attempting to become
independent. We are expanding our
service and upgrading our logistics.
When you see those orange bar-
rels, that means people are working,
were moving things.
Kasich also touched on the elimi-
nation of the death tax in Ohio.
You shouldnt have to visit the
undertaker and the tax man on the
same day and walk away without
your [family] business, he said. We
got rid of that and are encouraging
the federal government to do the
same. Small business is the engine
of economic growth.
Kasich urged everyone to get in-
volved to solve the states problems,
rather than waiting on someone else or
the government to come to the rescue.
We have 11.5 million people
with diverse backgrounds. We have
the formula to be great, he said.
We need to get folks involved in-
stead of thinking someone else is go-
ing to x it.
Education is a large part of Ka-
sichs campaign drive and his last
budget included more funding for
K-12 schools, bringing trade schools
back to Ohio and universities and
community colleges pledging to fo-
cus on students completing courses
and earning degrees, not tuition.
We need our high school guid-
ance counselors guiding people.
They need to be helping our students
map out their future, not being used
as a lunch room monitor, he said.
We have universities and commu-
nity colleges committing to their stu-
dents and their success.
Kasich referenced a school in
Cincinnati with a 65-percent gradua-
tion rate that was lifted to 97 percent
just by having community members
coming into the school and talking
with students and taking an interest
in their success.
You dont need to try and change
100, 50 or even 10 peoples lives, he
said. You just need to change one.
Kasich closed by urging the 250
in attendance to become a part of the
solution to Ohios challenges.
We need to take our communi-
ties back. We have lost our sense
of personal responsibility, he said.
We need to get our folks in the
schools and talking to our youth. I
read somewhere that even just one
conversation with a young person
about the scourge of drugs make st-
hem 50 percent less likely theyll do
drugs. Weve rolled out a new pro-
gram called Start Talking and its
our plan for the war on drugs and it
starts with talking.
Kasich urges residents to get involved in their communities
he Delphos City
School Board of
Education will
meet at 7:30 p.m. Mon-
day in the administrative
Items on the agenda in-
clude approval of the fed-
erally mandated increase
of lunch prices.
Governor John Kasich touted his successes in his rst term and
outlined his plan for continued improvements in Ohio should
he be voted in for another to a crowd of more than 250 at
Wannemacher Logistics on Friday. (DHI Media/Nancy Spencer)

Salvation Army Food Pantry
restocked thanks to public reaction
DHI Media Editor
VAN WERT Two weeks
ago, Maj. Art Barter was not
feeling too secure. The Salva-
tion Army Food Pantry in Van
Wert was all but out of food.
Families who came for help
with groceries soon would be
going home with only a few
scraps of what was leftover.
With no promise of a food
supply coming to restock the
pantry, there was much uncer-
It was a little unsettling
not knowing where we would
get more, Barter admitted.
We had plenty of snack food
like packages of crackers you
could give kids after school,
but nothing substantial that
you could put in a bag of gro-
ceries for a family.
Marbletown Cake Decorating Contest
draws 61 confectioners
The icing was slathered and the decorations placed just so during the
annual Marbletown Kids Cake Decoration Contest Friday in Marble Hall
at Delphos Wesleyan Church. Local baker Alex Benavidez provides each
child with a 4-inch round cake, icing and gummy worms, frog, gum drops,
etc., to create their own sweet masterpiece. Above: Brianna Bowen, 6,
and Zaria Harter, also 6, make sure their cakes have enough decorations.

VAN WERT One more tool is ready for
use in the struggle to match talent, especially
hometown talent, with local job opportunities.
Van Wert Works, is a web-based employment
service featuring area employers looking for
employees. It is
based on a success-
ful program for
Mercer, Auglaize,
and Darke County
employees called
Hometown Oppor-
On Wednesday
night, the new site
went online at Van- and
thus far the site is
getting a good re-
So far, the
feedback from the
businesses has
been wonderful, offers Van Wert County
Economic Development Director Sarah Smith.
I can already see there being a need in the
future to hire someone just to manage the web-
site, which is the same thing that happened in
Mercer County for their website Hometown
Unlike the neighboring site, Van Wert
Works will not allow direct submissions of
resumes on the site, but it will be continually
updated with new jobs and opportunities. Ac-
cording to Smith, four new job openings were
emailed from local companies on the rst day
the site went live.
Directions to responding to the job postings
can be found on the site.
Not all of our key industries are listed on
the site quite yet, explained Smith In May I
visited over 45 Van Wert and Delphos orga-
nizations and busi-
nesses. It was their
task to complete the
information needed
to add them to the
site. Sometimes it
takes the site going
active and seeing
you arent on there
to give the push to
get your informa-
tion submitted.
Companies who
have not yet re-
turned their infor-
mation should con-
tact the Van Wert
County Develop-
ment Ofce.
The purpose of the site is a push by the
county commissioners to showcase Van Wert
County, Smith shared. It will provide one-
stop shopping for youth desiring to see what
jobs and opportunities are available in the Van
Wert. This could serve to help steer a career
path for talent looking to stay in Van Wert
County or move home after college.
New site to help match local
talent and local jobs

WASHINGTON (AP) This weeks death of former White
House press secretary James Brady, who survived a gunshot
wound to the head in a 1981 assassination attempt on President
Ronald Reagan, has been ruled a homicide, District of Colum-
bia police said Friday.
Federal prosecutors said only that they are reviewing the
ruling. But a law professor and an attorney for John Hinck-
ley Jr., who was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the
shooting, said bringing new charges against the 59-year-old in
Bradys death seemed unlikely.
I think it (the medical examiners ruling) will mean noth-
ing, long-time Hinckley attorney Barry Levine told The As-
sociated Press. No prosecutors will bring such a case. The
notion that this could be a successful prosecution is far-fetched.
There is no legal basis to pursue this.
Brady lived through hours of delicate surgery and further
operations over the past 33 years, but never regained normal
use of his limbs and was often in a wheelchair.
An autopsy revealed the cause of death to be a gunshot
wound and its health consequences, and the manner of death
was ruled a homicide, according to a news release Friday from
District police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump. Nancy Bull,
district administrator for the Virginia medical examiners of-
ce, which made the ruling, declined to disclose any more re-
sults of the autopsy and referred inquiries to District police.
Besides partial paralysis from brain damage, Brady suffered
short-term memory impairment, slurred speech and constant
pain. His family said he died Monday at age 73 at his Virginia
home from a series of health issues.
William Miller, a spokesman for the U.S. attorneys ofce
in Washington, said the ofce is reviewing the ruling on the
death of Mr. Brady and has no further comment at this time.
District police and the FBI are also reviewing the case.
Tung Yin, a professor of law at Lewis & Clark Law School
in Portland, Oregon, said Friday that its rare that the act that
could be considered the cause of a murder occurred so long
It seems a little bit unprecedented, Yin said of the Virgin-
ia medical examiners ruling. He said such cases more likely
involve a person in a coma who dies some time later.
He said bringing such a case could cause problems for pros-
ecutors, because Hinckley Jr. was found was found not guilty
by reason of insanity.
A jury has already concluded on the same incident that
he (Hinckley Jr.) was not guilty. Nothing today changes that,
Yin said, even if prosecutors say Hinckley is no longer insane.
That doesnt change what he was 33 years ago.
Hinckley Jr. attempted to assassinate Reagan outside the
Washington Hilton Hotel on March 30, 1981, just two months
into the new presidents term. Reagan nearly died from a chest
wound. Three others, including Brady, were struck by bullets
from Hinckleys handgun.
In 1982, Hinckley Jr. was found not guilty by reason of in-
sanity of all charges in a 13-count indictment, including fed-
eral counts of attempted assassination of the president of the
United States, assault on a federal ofcer, and use of a rearm
in the commission of a federal offense, as well as District of
Columbia offenses of attempted murder, assault, and weapons
charges. The District of Columbia offenses included charges
related to the shooting of Brady.
Levine said prosecutors would have the additional challenge
of proving that Bradys death this week was the result of an act
33 years ago. How do you prove causation beyond a reason-
able doubt? he asked.
Gail Hoffman, a spokeswoman for Bradys family, said the
homicide ruling is not a surprise to any of us. She said the
family would respect whatever prosecutors think is appropriate
in dealing with the ruling.
Levine said that Hinckley wanted to express his deep sym-
pathy for Bradys family. He has the highest regard for (James)
Brady, he said.

County authorities have rescued
a woman they say was held for
ransom for two days without
any food or water.
Authorities say the 44-year-
old woman was kidnapped
at gunpoint Monday after a

Her family got a call de-

shed be harmed or killed if it
wasnt paid.
About 25 sheriffs detec-

The majority of Ohios electricity is
generated using nonrenewable resources
of coal, natural gas, nuclear and petroleum
which are found naturally in the earth and
produce large amounts of electricity. Each
of these resources take a long time to form
and there is a limited supply available for
people to use for power generation.
According to the US Energy Informa-
tion Administrations statistics, coal fueled 69
percent of Ohios net electricity generation in
2013, which is much higher than the 42 percent
of electricity generated by coal nationally.
The Public Utilities Commission of
Ohio (PUCO) reports Ohio cut its net
generation of electricity from coal by
close to 10 percent from 2010 to 2011.
Public Affairs Department Represen-
tative Matt Schilling said the decrease is
due to environmental factors as well as
an increase in the use of natural gas.
Theres a shift in Ohios unregulated
market, Schilling said. There are appli-
cations to build new natural gas genera-
tion facilities and providers are shifting
to the less expensive natural gas.
The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) report-
ed that close to 11 percent of Ohio electricity
is generated by nuclear power - a process in-
volving the ssion of uranium atoms which
releases heat and turns water into steam -
about 9.1 percent is produced using natural
gas and other gases which burn to produce
steam or hot combustion gas, and 1.0 percent
is produced with petroleum which is burned
to create steam that generates electricity.
Hydropower, wind, biomass and solar
energy are renewable resources that are
used to produce electricity on a smaller
scale, each of which are readily available
in nature and can be replenished quickly.
According to the National Renewable
Energy Laboratory, worldwide, wind en-
ergy is one of the fastest growing renew-
able electricity technologies between
2000 and 2012, wind electricity generation
worldwide increased by a factor of nearly
16 and in the United States, wind electricity
generation increased by a factor of 25.
Currently, Ohio has two wind farms
which generate close to 450 megawatts
(MW) of electricity, Schilling said. There
are several more planned for construction.
The two operational wind farm facilities
in Ohio includes Timber Road Wind Farm
II in Paulding County with 55 turbines and
Blue Creek Wind Farm in Van Wert and
Paulding Counties with 160 turbines.

exploring the Environmental Protection
Agencys Clean Power Plan and its im-
pact nationwide and at state levels.

Cooper Farms acquires Fort Recovery Equity
Farms announced Friday it
has completed its acquisition
of Fort Recovery Equity, a
chicken egg-layer and pullet
cooperative based in Fort Re-
The purchase allows Coo-
per Farms to grow their egg
division and branch into val-
ue-added egg products.
Our Cooper family stock-
holders are very excited about
creating a much more viable
egg division for our compa-
ny, said Gary Cooper, Coo-
per Farms COO. We have big
plans for our future in eggs
and value-added egg prod-
The purchase will give Coo-
per Farms an additional two
million chick-
en egg-layers
and the abil-
ity to raise up
to six million
pullets for their
own needs and
outside cus-
tomers. These
birds are raised
by more than 40 farmers, who
will join Cooper Farms as con-
tract growers.
We are especially inter-
ested in the variety of spe-
cialty egg layers we are gain-
ing, Cooper said. We see an
opportunity to expand those
numbers as we gain more
niche customers
Cooper Farms will also ac-
quire a feed mill,
Cooper Farms
fourth, which
will produce
approxi mat ely
400,000 tons
of feed in 2015.
This mill will
offer the ability
to create special-
ty feeds and accept specialty
The equitys 75 team
members have been asked
to stay on as members of the
Cooper Farms team as well.
With these individuals, Coo-
per Farms will employ nearly
1,700 people total throughout
northwest and west central
We are gaining a wonder-
ful group of people with this
acquisition, Cooper said.
They have a lot of years of
experience and dedication to
the company, which will prove
instrumental in this transition
and as we work to create val-
ue-added egg products.
Cooper Farms has based
their success upon a value-
added business model, in
which they create products
that provide consumers with
quick and easy meal options.

Timber Road has an output
of 99 MW, which is enough to
power close to 27,000 average
Ohio homes with clean en-
ergy each year. Blue Creeks
installed capacity is 304 MW
and will power approximately
76,000 homes annually.
Biomass energy resourc-
es include wood and wood
wastes, landll gas, biogas
from food processing waste,
animal waste, sewage sludge,
and potential energy crops.
Ohio has 19 land ll gas
projects which generates 50
MW total, Schilling said.
The vast majority of solar
power is residential, commer-
cial and industrial.
Ohios alternative energy
portfolio requires 12.5 percent of
the electricity sold by the states
electric distribution utilities or
electric services companies must
be generated from renewable en-
ergy sources by 2027.
Each electricity provider
has to meet annual bench-
marks, Schilling explained.
They receive renewable en-
ergy credits (RECs) and one
Rec equates to one MW.

Value-added products are
something that we focus on
throughout our company,
Cooper said. For example,
with meat, we provide turkey
burgers, cooked deli meat and
sliced meat.
The company plans to use
this way of thinking in their
egg division as well. In addi-
tion to the specialty egg por-
tion of the business, Cooper
Farms wants to also focus on
other value-added products.
We see great potential in
providing liquid eggs and cooked
egg products, Cooper said. We
are working on a partnership
with an Ohio-based company
to purchase a new egg-breaking
plant which will add to our value
added egg product line.
This transition has been a
goal of the Cooper Farms team
and family for many years, mak-
ing the acquisition a welcome
and exciting one for all involved.
We had been looking at a
variety of egg-related companies
for the past few years in an at-
tempt to enhance our egg divi-
sion, Cooper said. We started
seriously working on purchas-
ing Fort Recovery Equity this
spring, so we are excited to see
it come to fruition.

DHI Media Group Publisher
The Colonel had been Assistant
Secretary of the Navy, the gover-
nor of New York, led the board of
the New York City Police Commis-
sioners, and had become famous
for leading the charge up San Juan
Hill during the Spanish-American
War. He had also already served as
President of the United States for
seven and a half years.
But Theodore Teddy Roos-
evelt believed he still had service
to give to his country and when
a group of political leaders ap-
proached him in November of 1911
about running for President again,
he quickly accepted.
All was not happy, however, in
the Republican Party. Roosevelt
had handpicked his successor for
the 1908 election, William Howard
Taft, after deciding not to run again
because of the unwritten rule about
not exceeding two terms in ofce.
After stumping for and helping to
secure the election for his friend,
Roosevelt soon began criticizing
the new President.
Taft did not consult Teddy on
selections for members of the cabi-
net. The President then helped to
broker the Payne-Aldrich tariff, a
tax solution that split the Repub-
lican Party down the middle. Taft
then committed the most grievous
of errors in Roosevelts mind. Taft,
who launched dozens of antitrust
lawsuits against big business dur-
ing his time in ofce, went after
U.S. Steel for the purchase of a
competitor that Roosevelt had per-
sonally approved while he was still
in ofce. The Colonel felt humili-
ated by the man he had once con-
sidered his protege.
The primary season quickly got
under way and Roosevelt began
fashioning himself as the savior of
the GOP, the man who could reunite
all sides in their disagreements to
win the White House again. His
strong progressive stances, though,
turned away many of the more con-
servative power brokers within the
party, including the donors with
the most money.
The 1912 election was the rst to
fully use the state primary system
and Roosevelt did well, including
winning Tafts home state of Ohio.
Taft, in the meantime, swept the
South, picked up the upper Midwest
states, and captured New York, the
state where Roosevelt had been gov-
ernor. However, even though each
state held its own primary, the na-
tional committee determined the
credentials of the delegates so by
the time the convention convened
in Chicago, it was a certainty Taft
would regain the GOP nomination.
Roosevelt accepts nomination challenge but Bull Moose Party falls short
Coliseum, Chicago, Aug. 8 -
Amid scenes of the greatest confu-
sion the Progressive party nominated
former President Theodore Roosevelt
for president and Governor Hiram W.
Johnson of California for vice presi-
dent. Both nominations were made
by acclamation. The word National
was dropped from the party name.
The convention had been in ses-
sion since 10 a.m. The delay in mak-
ing the nominations was caused by
exhaustive discussions over the plat-
form in the committee on resolutions.
Colonel Roosevelt was put in
nomination by Comptroller William
A. Pendergast of New York, and
the nomination had been seconded
by Judge Ben Lindsey of Colorado,
Miss Jane Addams of Chicago, Al-
exander T. Hamilton of Georgia,
General Horatio C. King of New
York, Colonel T.F. Lloyd of Florida,
General John H. McDowell of Ten-
nessee, Henry J. Allen of Kansas, ex-
Governor Garvin of Rhode Island,
John J. Sullivan of Ohio and Robert
S. Fisher of Arizona.
Governor Johnson had been put in
nomination by Judge John M. Parker
of New Orleans, and the nomination
had been seconded by C.S. Wheeler
of California, James R. Gareld
of Ohio, Bainbridge Colby of New
York, Frederick Landis of Indiana,
Raymond Robin of Illinois, Gifford
Pinchot of Pennsylvania, Governor
Vessey of South Dakota, William
Flinn of Pennsylvania and John R.
Clede, a negro, of New York.
Colonel Roosevelt, arm in arm
with Governor Johnson, appeared
before the convention and was
greeted with wildest plaudits, a very
bedlam of a demonstration, and for-
mally accepted the nominations. The
great audience of 15,000 souls sang
the Doxology to the accompaniment
of a band, the fe and drum corps,
a quartet of trombones and cornets,
with the minute gun machine bark-
ing away up in the organ loft, and
with the benediction the convention
At that moment a great banner
was dropped from the girders on the
roof of the Coliseum with this leg-
Roosevelt and Johnson. New
York and California. Hands across
the continent. For there is neither east
nor west; border nor breed; nor birth,
when two strong men stand face to
face, though they come from the ends
of the earth.
From the very rst moment to the
last this convention has had the ap-
pearance of a great religious revival.
Senator Dixon and others remarked
at the close of the scene: This is not
politics; this is religion.
Temporary Chairman Beveridge,
in calling the convention to order, an-
nounced that Rabbi G.S. Levi of the
Temple Israel of Chicago would say
the invocation.
Medill McCormick of Illinois
got a rousing welcome when, as the
chairman of the committee on rules,
he reported the recommendations of
that committee to the effect that the
new party would be known as the
Progressive party. The new party
has made no provision for delegates
from the Philippines or Porto Rico,
nor will they have representation on
the national committee. Alaska, Ha-
waii ad Washington D.C. are admit-
ted to the national committee, but the
members are not permitted to vote.
They are each permitted one delegate
in the convention with a vote each.
It was now well on toward noon
and there was no indication that the
committee on resolutions was ready
to report. The committee had been
in continuous session for nearly 62
hours. Colonel Roosevelt had desired
as short a platform as possible. The
committee had received so many
planks that they were working like
day laborers to chip them down to
reasonable dimensions.
Ticket Is Named By Acclamation
25 Years Ago
This week in 1989, President Bushs ad-
ministration was gearing up to implement
the biggest government bailout in history. A
bill authorized $50 billion to fund the clos-
ing and merging of hundreds of savings and
loans around the country. The legislation also
imposed tougher nancial standards, dictated
a sweeping overhaul of the regulatory bureau-
cracy, and created the Resolution Trust Corpo-
ration (RTC) to oversee the sale of bad loans
and repossessed real estate the government
would inherit with the closings of the S&Ls.
The president of the Van Wert City Edu-
cation Association, Margaret Morrison, pre-
sented an overview to the board of education
on the new Dial-A-Teacher program to be
implemented in the fall. Funded by commu-
nity donations, the program would install two
telephone lines, manned by teachers, for stu-
dents to call for help with homework projects
on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from
6:30-8:30 p.m. To introduce the Dial-A-Teach-
er program to elementary students, teacher
Bitsey Clark and students Chad Brubaker and
Richard Washington wrote and performed a
rap song that was videotaped.
STG-3 Thomas G. Wrocklage, son of Tom
and Mary Lou Wrocklage of Delphos, com-
pleted a two-year tour of duty with the U.S.
Navy in Yokosuka, Japan. While he was based
in Japan, his ship spent two months in the In-
dian Ocean and the Persian Gulf. His ship was
attached to the battle group supporting the air-
craft carrier U.S.S. Midway.
50 Years Ago
This week in 1964, tensions remained high
after three North Vietnamese torpedo boats
attacked the U.S.S. Maddox, an American
destroyer in the Gulf of Tonkin. Although all
the ships were either sunk or driven off, a sec-
ond torpedo attack the next night led President
Johnson to give a shoot-to-kill order to Navy
ofcials. Planes from the Constellation and
Ticonderoga carriers bombed torpedo boats in
their coastal nets, anti-aircraft positions, and
destroyed an oil storage depot. The escalation
in attacks led analysts to believe war might be
unavoidable in the region.
A Van Wert City Council meeting was ex-
pected to revolve around the need for a new
city reservoir and pump house. Construction
on the project was estimated at $476,000.
A former Fort Jennings man and his wife,
Jack and Anna Mae Calvelage, at the respected
and respective ages of 76 and 70 were caring
for their 54th child in their home in Wagoner,
Okla. Jack and Anna Mae reared three daugh-
ters of their own, plus an adopted son and
daughter. The rest of their family were foster
children youngsters in custody of the state
Child Welfare Division.
75 Years Ago
This week in 1939, Secretary of Agriculture
Henry A. Wallace called the new food stamp
program a success. Begun as an experiment
three months earlier in order to distribute farm
surpluses to low income groups, Wallace ex-
pected the program to expand nationally in a
few months from the six test cities, including
Dayton, Ohio.
Nine members of Boy Scout Troop 31 of
Van Wert traveled to Rome City, Indiana for
the annual camp at Sylvan Lake. Local mem-
bers in attendance included Joe Morgan, Ro-
land Stuck, Roger Leatherman, Dale Stripe,
Junior Thomas, Junior Whitman, Graydon
Lee, Junior Gribler, and Jack Weigle.
An effort was made to secure action for
the construction of the Delphos projects, the
swimming pool, comfort station and stadium,
under the WPA. The status of the matter was
discussed at the weekly meeting of the Del-
phos Kiwanis Club. Mayor Baringer and Ser-
vice Director Myers were present as guests at
the meeting.

On the Banks of Yesteryear ...
Through the Eyes of Teens, part II
On a visit to the museum at the end of the school year, 8th grade language arts students
researched items that interested them. These are a few of their ndings.
Early Football Equipment
The early football equip-
ment is nothing compared to
what we use in todays game.
In the early years of foot-
ball they had leather helmets
they called head harnesses.
The leather helmets were de-
signed to protect the ear area.
It made communicating ex-
tremely difcult. Between
1915 and 1917, the rst skull
protection helmets were intro-
duced, also the rst ear holes
and suspension in the helmets
causing them not to be placed
directly on your head. A cou-
ple years later harder leather
was added and a more tear-
drop shape evolved into the
Other teammates in the
early football years did not
like when you put extra pad-
ding underneath your jersey.
The rst shoulder pads were
made out of sewn leather.
The rst pair of football
pants were made out of rough
canvas with light padding in
the thigh and knee. The pants
design never changed. They
still only go about knee length
with a lace-up y.

Browning M1917
(Photo submitted)
The Browning M1917 was a water-cooled
machine gun developed by John Moses Brown-
ing. It was used in WWI, WWII, The Korean
War, and The Vietnam War. The gun weighed
103 pounds but included the gun, a tripod, a wa-
ter jacket, and a wooden ammo crate that could
hold 250 7.6 mm rounds. The gun was built for
the U.S. and it was mounted on Army jeeps. It
was a recoil operated gun. They made a total of
two million. During the 1960s the water cooling
jacket failed to work so the soldiers had to urinate
on them due to cold weather. It was later taken
out of the army and replaced by a much more
advanced gun called the M60 machine gun.
The museum is putting the
nal touches on the new canal
display, including the remains
of the Marguerite, the last
canal boat in Delphos. We are
open every Thursday morn-
ing from 9 a.m. to noon, every
Saturday and Sunday from 1-3
p.m. or by appointment.

I dont consider myself

my beliefs and they dont

these politicians make me

I was going hear much oth-

These things are usually pre-

He did say one thing that
stuck in my mind and I hope
it will continue to grow in
there and come to fruition.
He said you dont have to
start out with the idea that
you need to help 100, 50 or
even 10 people. You just have
to help one.
Huh. Thats pretty simple.
Just focus on helping one
This follows along with
a Facebook post I read on
Thursday. It was the short
story of a little girl on a
beach lled with star sh
that had washed up on its
shores. She was frantically
gathering up the sea stars
and tossing them back in the
ocean. A gentleman came
along and questioned her en-
deavor saying she could nev-
er save them all; she couldnt
change the situation for all
of them. She picked another
one up and tossed it back in
the sea and said, Well, I just
changed it for that one!
Out of the mouths of
I think sometimes we see
the big picture and get over-
whelmed by it all like that
beach full of star sh. We
need to break it down and take
smaller pieces that can be t
back together and form a bet-
ter picture. That daunting task
can become more manage-
able in tinier bites. Someone
involved in an eating contest
doesnt look at the whole pile
of hot dogs and think, I have
to eat all those! They think,
I have to eat one and then an-
other and another. It all starts
with one.
We can look in our city
and parochial schools right
here and think we have to
help all the students or we
can nd a way to help one
and then move on to another.
It all starts with one.
Trust me, no one at either
school is going to turn away
a volunteer. They both need
and will gratefully take our
help. It could be something
as simple as having a student
read to you or going through
math problems. It all starts
with one.
There are people right
here in Delphos who could
use a little encouragement,
a smile or a pat on the back.
Life has kicked them down
and they dont need a hand
out; they need a hand up. It
all starts with one.
So when you are out and
about this weekend going
about your errands, hitting
those garage sales or enjoy-
ing the events at the Marble-
town Festival, look around
and see how you can help.
Who could use a hand up or
a smile or a little encourage-
ment? I bet you dont have to
look too far to nd someone.
There are a lot of people in
our community that could
use it. It all starts with one.
And then the next one will
be easier. And then there will
be two. See youre already 20

Its that weekend. Yard
sales everywhere you step. For
some people, this is heavenly
with signs lining the road and
tables full of stuff farther than
the eye can see. Me, Im not
a fan. I have enough stuff to
last me until next year, thanks
But Im not going to deny
anyone their sense of fun. Just
dont step out in front of my
car to go dicker with someone
for that used wafe-maker.
Thats one of the things Im
not too keen about when it
comes to such sales. Too many
people forget that roads are
for trafc and the Thats OK,
theyll stop attitude causes a
few additional cardiac events.
But this is a huge week-
end for yard sale fanatics. All
along Lincoln Highway and
along U.S. 127 there are yard
sales, and please call them
yard sales. Unless, of course,
the one you are visiting is ac-
tually in a garage. If the items
are in a garage, great! Its a
garage sale!
If they are in the yard,
guess what? Its a yard sale!
There are tent sales, antique
sales, junk sales, and all sorts
of things like that. Some
people call them tag sales
because the merchandise
could be anywhere, and they
wouldnt want to miss a sale!
I dont like shopping at
garage sales because Im too
lazy to walk through some-
ones garage (or yard) to hunt
down things I really dont
need. I dont like having a ga-
rage sale because most of the
customers are just plain cheap.
I could set a solid gold bar on a
yard sale table with a $1 price
tag on it, and the rst 150 cus-
tomers will all ask the same
question Will you take 50
cents for this?
NO! Its only one dollar!
Reach a little deeper in your
lint-lled pockets and pull out
FOUR quarters! Is reading
comprehension a problem for
you? (Alright, holding a sale
can stress me out! But you
know thats true!)
Let me emphasize, I have
no problem with buying things
that are formerly used. I have
owned only one new car in my
lifetime, I often wear clothing
purchased at thrift stores, and
when I bowl, I rent the shoes.
Im not stuck up and insist
only on brand new items. Al-
though there are some articles
of clothing we shouldnt see
for sale out on someones sale
table. And Ill just leave it at
My last sale was a failure.
The temperature in April hit a
new record low and the wind
started knocking things onto
the concrete and a few items
broke. To make matters worse,
the neighbors dog came to
visit and knocked a few more
breakables onto the pavement.
Total sales = $20. Total bro-
ken items = $25 according
to the tags. Of course people
would have asked for half off,
so maybe I made a couple of
bucks after all!
The time before that, I had
a pony cart for sale. It was
a beautiful item. I had pur-
chased the cart new in Indiana
Amish country. I made sure to
highlight the cart in my news-
paper ad and gave it a prime
position in my yard. The day
before the sale, some guy saw
it, stopped, and bought it for
full price. It was a great devel-
However when the sale
did start, every person asked
about that cart I used to have
in my yard. Some had read
it in the paper and wanted to
take a look at it. The simple
fact is I could have sold no
less than half a dozen of those
things and I only had one, and
that one was sold before the
sale actually started.
I spent most of the week-
end trying to remember which
stone road in Indiana I had
driven down to nd the guy
who had built that cart. I want-
ed to buy as many as possible
and bring them back to sell
to a waiting public. Wouldnt
you know, I had no directions
to his place and (of course) no
Amish phone number to use
to call and order a yard full
of them! But at least I got full
money out of the one I had.
For those of you who love
to poke around table of used
nonsense and items you will
probably have to x before
you can use them, I hope you
are having or have had a won-
derful yard sale weekend. And
if you are preparing to go out
and offer 50 cents for one-
dollar items, go back in your
own house and read a book.
Dont torture these poor sell-
ers. Youve been warned.

To the editor,
Everyone is upset about the condition of water supplies in
several of our nearby lakes. The Herald printed an article in
Mondays paper that states that farmers runoff and sludge
plants are being blamed for the problem. No where did I see
that everyone who fertilizes their yards was being blamed.
There has been so much housing growth along the rivers
and lake channels in the last 20-plus years. All you see is big
beautiful yards. The fertilizers and sprays from these yards
runs directly into our rivers and lakes.
Please quit blaming it all on farmers. Look in the mirror;
most of you are to blame, too.
Do you want a pretty green yard or do you want safer
water and food on your table?
We, the farmer, have to use fertilizer; you dont.

A lot has changed in the world since 1988.
During that year, the cost of a stamp rose to 25 cents. The
price of gasoline hovered around 72 cents per gallon. Crocodile
Dundee II was the top-grossing movie of the year at a little
more than $24 million. Stephen Hawkings best-selling book
explaining the universe, A Brief History of Time, was released.
George Michael topped the charts with four number one songs.
Barry Sanders won the Heisman Trophy after rushing for 2,850
yards and scored 44 touchdowns at Oklahoma State University.
President Ronald Reagan was completing his last year in the
White House.
But many things have stayed the same. From February to
September of that year, the al-Anfal Campaign resulted in the
deaths of up to 182,000 Kurds and other minority groups in
northern Iraq. Today, the country appears to be on the verge of
descending into another genocidal period.
Reports in the past few days and weeks have grown increas-
ingly alarming as the group known as the Islamic State of Iraq
and Syria (ISIS) has upped the violence in the country. At least
one news organization has reported dozens of Christian, Kurd-
ish, non-Sunni Muslim children were recently beheaded in a
park in Mosul. Iraqi government ofcials said hundreds of Ya-
zidi (a religion based upon Zoroastrian philosophies) women
under the age of 35 were captured by ISIS forces. The women
are now being held in the same city and are being given to
ISIS soldiers as slaves. Another reported 50,000 Yazidi people,
roughly half of them children, are surrounded in the mountains
outside Sinjar with no food or water. On Thursday, ISIS told
Christians in Qaraqosh, the largest non-Islam population in the
country, to either leave, convert to Islam, or be killed.
At the same time, ISIS forces have also moved close enough
to U.S. and other humanitarian aid countries centers that
President Obama ordered airstrikes the past two days to attack
the terrorist positions. U.S. assets also dropped supplies to the
trapped Yazidis in Sinjar.
To say any of the events occurring over the past few weeks
is solely the fault of recent U.S. administrations is naive and
uninformed. In addition to the mass killing of women and
children under the Hussein leadership in the 80s, Iraq histo-
ry shows racial and religious mass murders going back to the
1920s (Simele Massacre) and earlier.
The current Iraqi government appears either unable or un-
willing to do what is necessary to keep the country safe from
these types of attacks. If the U.S. and other countries do noth-
ing to help the Iraqi government, then the world will be treated
to another round of atrocities to rival the likes of Idi Amin in
Uganda and the Khmer Rouge government in Cambodia. More
than likely, airstrikes with either planes or drones will only
go so far in holding down the terrorist violence so if the U.S.
becomes involved, ground forces may be needed in order to
accomplish any portion of peace. So far the Obama adminis-
tration has vehemently denied any plans to put troops in Iraq,
going so far as to leave the airstrikes an unnamed operation to
reinforce they are only small, temporary acts.
In the end, the U.S. and the Obama administration are fac-
ing the Mortons Fork Paradox. In the late 15th century, the
Archbishop of Canterbury, John Morton, stated any man living
modestly must be saving money and could therefore afford to
pay more taxes. Morton also held that any person living an
extravagant and lavish lifestyle must be so rich they could obvi-
ously afford to pay more taxes. In other words, Mortons Fork
states that every case, despite the circumstances, leads to the
same unpleasant end.
Iraq, and for that matter much of the Middle East, is the
Mortons Fork for America. If we sit by and do nothing, tens of
thousands of people, including women and children, will die.
If we attempt to help in any way, we will invite attacks and put
the lives of our soldiers and others in jeopardy, resulting in
people dying.
Either way, there is no good answer.

Immigration and border
security issues are demand-
ing a lot of our attention as we
debate the pros and cons of
legal and illegal additions to
Americas population.
It is easy to forget Ameri-
ca is a nation of immigrants,
and always will be. The vast
majority of immigrants are
good people. They come here
voluntarily looking for a bet-
ter life for themselves and
their families. Who can blame
them for that?
No one seems to have a
problem with legal, docu-
mented immigrants. The
problem is with the ood of
uninvited, illegal immigrants.
Who do you know that com-
plains about the number of
foreign children brought here
via legal adoption?
There are human tragedies
all over the world. Billions
live in terror, without food,
clean water and sanitation.
The message cannot be: send
us all of your unwanted people
without any restrictions.
Many people are suspicious
and resentful towards those
who come illegally. Wed be
more tolerant if it didnt ap-
pear the illegals were coming
mostly for free government
money, free health care and
other free benets.
Many lower-middle-class
citizens see the immigrants
taking away their minimum
wage jobs, leaving them to
survive below the poverty lev-
el. Many of the illegals even
qualify for government aid
that isnt available to current
citizens. Illegal workers even
send money home to their

We need to reafrm our
American values. We need to
reafrm what we stand for, and
what we wont stand for. We
should never apologize for what
America was founded on and it
is our duty to pass this one to
those who want to come here.
Americas culture was de-
veloped over two centuries of
struggles, trials and victories
by millions of dedicated and
hard-working men and wom-
en who sought freedom. It was
not an easy road and what we
have today is a result of those
sacrices. Its why so many
people dream of coming here.
The following opinions
were taken from an unaccred-
ited essay, but are thoughts
shared by many.
Because of that, I think
immigrants, not Americans,
must adapt to our culture. It
should be a take it or leave
it proposition. Citizens are
tired of apologizing and being
defensive. We should not feel
guilty about whether we are
offending some individual or
their culture. They should not
try to change the American
culture that has been in exis-
tence for 230 years.
We speak mainly English
in America, not Spanish, Leb-
anese, Arabic, Chinese, Japa-
nese, Russian or any other lan-
guage. Therefore, if you wish
to become part of this great
society, learn the language.
Most Americans believe in
God. This is not some Chris-
tian, right wing, political push,
but a fact, because Christian
men and women, on Chris-
tian principles, founded this
nation and this is displayed
on the walls of our schools,
court rooms and government
If God offends you, then I
suggest you consider another
part of the world as your new
home, because God is part of
our culture. Its part of Ameri-
ca and what makes it attractive
to so many outsiders. Allow it
to be changed and America
will no longer be America.
We are tolerant of your be-
liefs and differences, but you
shouldnt ask us to change 230
years of our culture and re-
place it with yours. All we ask
is that you accept ours, and
live in harmony and peaceful
enjoyment with us.
Remember, this is our coun-
try, our land and our lifestyle,
and we will allow you every
opportunity to enjoy all this.
But once you are done com-
plaining, whining and griping
about our ag, our pledge, our
Christian beliefs and our way
of life, I highly encourage you
to take advantage of one other
great American freedom, the
right to leave.
If you arent happy here,
then feel free to leave. We
didnt force you to come here,
you asked to become a part of
this great experiment, so ac-
cept the country that has ac-
cepted you. We want you to
become a productive, contrib-
uting member of society.
A Conundrum is dened
as: something that is puzzling
or confusing. The following
has been oating around for
quite awhile. Here are the six
conundrums of socialism in

greedyyet half of the popu-
lation is subsidized.
2. Half of the population
is subsidizedyet they think
they are victims.

tives run the government.
4. Their representatives run
the governmentyet the poor
keep getting poorer.
5. The poor keep getting
pooreryet they have things
that people in other countries
only dream about.
6. They have things that
people in other countries only
dream aboutyet they want
America to be more like those
other countries.
Here are three things con-
servatives struggle to under-
1. We are advised by liber-
als to not judge all Muslims
by the actions of a few luna-
tics, but we are encouraged
to judge all gun owners by
the actions of a few lunatics.
Funny how that works!
2. Seems we constantly
hear about how Social Se-
curity is going to run out of
money. How come we never
hear about welfare and food
stamp programs running out
of money? Whats interesting
is the rst group worked for
their money, but the second

In high schools throughout
America, shop class has been
eliminated and kids are often
told that the only way to be
successful is to have a four-year
college degree. I reject this ap-
proach and, to the contrary, be-
lieve we need to put shop class
back in high schools and instill
in young people a heightened
sense of pride and purpose for
entering careers in the skilled
This important debate is il-
luminated by a Bureau of La-
bor Statistics study showing 48 percent of college graduates
working in jobs that dont require a four-year degree. As you
read this today, there are young people throughout America
who have four-year liberal arts degrees, thousands of dollars in
debt, and are serving coffee at Starbucks or working part-time
at the mall.
I believe that many of these young people would have been
better off with a two-year skilled trade or technical education
with actual skills to secure a well-paying job and many oppor-
tunities for upward mobility.
For example, I recently visited Pioneer Pipe in Marietta and
learned that last year the company paid 60 of its welders over
$150,000 and two of its welders over $200,000. The owner said
he has had to turn down orders because he cant nd enough
skilled welders.
As baby boomers are retiring, I frequently hear about the
shortage of welders, pipe-tters, electricians, carpenters, ma-
chinists and other skilled trades in many parts of Ohio.
According to a recent Skills Gap Survey by the Manufac-
turing Institute, approximately 600,000 manufacturing jobs
are unlled nationally because employers cant nd qualied
In order to ll these jobs, we need to encourage high school
students who show an interest in making and building things
with a willingness to sometimes get their hands dirty.
Ohio has some terric examples of what needs to be hap-
pening throughout the country.
Ive been to the heavy equipment lab at the Warren County
Career Center, where they have a mock construction site teach-
ing students how to operate everything from high-tech machin-
ery to bulldozers and backhoes.
At the Career and Technology Education Centers of Lick-
ing County they are teaching students high tech manufacturing
skills in welding and robotics. Schools like these put the tools
on the tool belts of Ohioans in order to prepare them for jobs
that are needed in todays economy.
By putting shop class back in high schools, increasing ac-
cess to technical and vocational education and bringing pride
and prole to the men and women who work in these jobs, we
can help inspire the kids and grandkids of America to restore
the tradition of hard work of previous generations.
There is a quiet crisis upon us and in order to combat it
and prosper as a country, we must work together to encourage
young Americans to pursue careers in manufacturing and the
skilled trades.

Q: Werent estate taxes eliminated in Ohio?
A: While the Ohio estate tax was repealed effective January
1, 2013, a decedents estate may have to pay a federal estate tax if
the gross estate is more than $5.34 million dollars (the exempt
Q: What is the tax rate for estates that exceed the exempt
A: The tax rate is 40 percent. This rate also applies to gener-
ation-skipping transfer tax (when, for example, a distribution is
made from a grandparent to a grandchild).
Q: Can any tax deductions be taken from the decedents gross
A: Yes. Typical deductions include expenses associated with
the decedents funeral and burial, debts and obligations, gifts to
charities and most transfers to the surviving spouse.
Q: Should an estate le a federal estate tax return if all assets
are transferred to the surviving spouse?
A: Maybe. When the decedents gross estate exceeds the ex-
empt amount, a return (Form 706) must be led even if the taxable
estate is zero. Also, the estate may elect to le a return when the
gross estate is less than the exempt amount. Doing so may allow
the surviving spouse to leave combined net assets of $10.68 mil-
lion dollars in the estate, but the family would not have to pay
federal estate taxes. For example, lets say a man dies and leaves
$4 million dollars to his wife. His wife does not have to le a fed-
eral estate tax return. If the wife has $4 million dollars of her own
assets plus the $4 million dollars she inherited from her husband,
her gross estate would be $8 million. Approximately $3 million
dollars of this $8 million would be subject to federal estate taxes.
However, if she les a federal tax return at the time of her hus-
bands death, she can claim the unused exempt amount of $4 mil-
lion dollars for her husband as well as her own exempt amount.
This will leave her with a combined $8 million dollar exempt
amount, which will eliminate the federal estate tax.
Q: Will accounts held as transfer on death or payable on
death avoid federal estate tax?
A: No. The transfer of property can be accomplished quickly
after a persons death through the titling of assets as transfer on
death or payable on death, but most of these assets will not
escape estate tax liability.
Q: Can I give all of my property away during my life to avoid
estate taxes?
A: No. The federal tax structure is considered a unied es-
tate and gift tax system. This means that transfers made while
you are alive are added together with those that are distributed
when you die to determine if your total assets exceed the exempt
amount. This is called a lifetime computation.
Q: How does the federal gift tax work?
A: Under the current law, an individual can give $14,000 (the
annual exclusion) to another person (the donee) without l-
ing a federal gift tax return. The annual exclusion is based on the
amount of the gift made to each donee and not on the total amount
given by the donor. For example, one parent can give $14,000
to each of his or her four children (a combined gift of $56,000)
without ling a gift tax return. If the donor is married, the annual
exclusion can double (called gift splitting). Thus, this couple
could give $28,000 to each child without ling a gift tax return
even though only one spouse made the gift. When the aggregate
amount exceeds $14,000 per donee, a gift tax return (Form 709)
must be led by April 15 following the calendar year. The excess
amount over the $14,000 reduces the future exemption amount
available when the donor dies.

AP White House
After years of resisting the
pull of more Mideast conicts,
President Barack Obama has
sent the military back into ac-
tion in Iraq, where he once ac-
cused his predecessor of wag-
ing a dumb war.
U.S. planes on Friday
bombed Islamic militants who
were towing artillery outside
Irbil near U.S. personnel, the
Pentagon said.
The aggressive insurgen-
cy threatens to undermine
Obamas legacy as the com-
mander in chief who ended
a long and unpopular war in
which nearly 4,500 American
troops died.
It also raises fresh ques-
tions about whether Obamas
desire to end the war clouded
his assessment of the risks of
fully withdrawing U.S. troops,
as well as his judgment about
the threat posed by the ex-
Obama insisted the U.S.
was not moving toward a pro-
tracted conict.
I will not allow the Unit-
ed States to be dragged into
ghting another war in Iraq,
he said late Thursday at the
White House.
He also said the U.S. had
completed airdrops of human-
itarian aid to Iraqi religious
minorities who are under
The moves are, so far, more
limited in scope than the inva-
sion undertaken by President
George W. Bush after the
Sept. 11 attacks.
The chief rationale for
Obamas authorization for
military strikes in Iraq was to
protect American forces serv-
ing in Irbil. They include some
of the forces the president sent
in this summer to help train
and assist Iraqs struggling se-
curity forces.
In trying to help Iraq pro-
tect civilians, Obama said
the U.S. has a responsibility
to stop imminent massacres.
Its an echo of the argument
he used when the U.S. joined
NATOs bombing campaign
in Libya in 2010.
Obama has not followed
the same path in Syrias civil
war, where more than 170,000
people have died.
The conditions that re-
turned the U.S. to military
action in Iraq can be traced
back months or years, as
the presidents critics contend.
As recently as January,
Obama was dismissive of the
al-Qaida breakaway Islamic
militants. In an interview with
the New Yorker magazine, he
said comparing the group to
the terrorist network estab-
lished by Osama bin Laden
was like comparing a junior
varsity basketball team to an
NBA squad.
Yet U.S. intelligence and
defense ofcials were warn-
ing about the potential threat
from the Islamic State, which
had strengthened in Syria.
Obamas comments re-
ected his limited appetite for
wading back into Iraq or start-
ing a military engagement in
Syria, where he authorized
an air assault last summer
but never gave the order to go
Obamas critics draw a di-
rect connection between that
approach and his decision to
withdraw all American troops
from Iraq in late 2011. He did
so in large part because Iraqs
government refused to sign a
security agreement providing
U.S. troops immunity.
But White House oppo-
nents say the president should
have pushed harder for a deal
in order to avoid the type of
situation now unfolding.
We are already paying a
very heavy price for our inac-
tion, and if we do not change
course, the costs of our in-
action will only grow, said
Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz.,
and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
They called on Obama to
extend his authorization of
airstrikes against the Islamic
State beyond Iraq and into
The urry of action comes
as Obamas approval ratings
have plummeted, and the pub-
lics opinion of his foreign
policy moves is lagging.
He has faced questions
about his ability to inuence
world events, from Russias
provocations in Ukraine to the
ghting between Israel and
Iraq upheaval threatens Obama legacy

IRBIL, Iraq (AP) The U.S. unleashed its rst airstrikes
in northern Iraq against militants of the Islamic State group
Friday amid a worsening humanitarian crisis. The extremists
took captive hundreds of women from a religious minority,
according to an Iraqi ofcial, while thousands of other civil-
ians ed in fear.
Many of Americas allies backed the U.S. intervention,
pledging urgent steps to assist the legions of refugees and
displaced people. Those in jeopardy included thousands of
members of the Yazidi religious minority whose plight
trapped on a mountaintop by the militants prompted the
U.S. to airdrop crates of food and water to them.
The extremists campaign of terror against the inno-
cent, including the Yazidi and Christian minorities, and its
grotesque and targeted acts of violence bear all the warn-
ing signs and hallmarks of genocide, said U.S. Secretary of
State John Kerry. For anyone who needed a wake-up call,
this is it.
Underscoring the sense of alarm, a spokesman for
Iraqs human rights ministry said hundreds of Yazidi
women had been seized by the militants. Kamil Amin,
citing reports from the victims families, said some of the
women were being held in schools in Iraqs second-largest
city, Mosul.
We think that the terrorists by now consider them slaves
and they have vicious plans for them, Amin told The As-
sociated Press. We think that these women are going to be
used in demeaning ways by those terrorists to satisfy their
animalistic urges in a way that contradicts all the human and
Islamic values.
For the U.S. military, which withdrew its forces from Iraq
in late 2011 after more than eight years of war, the re-engage-
ment began when two F/A-18 jets dropped 500-pound bombs
on a piece of artillery and the truck towing it. The Penta-
gon said the militants were using the artillery to shell Kurd-
ish forces defending Irbil, the capital of Iraqs autonomous
Kurdish region, and home to a U.S. consulate and about three
dozen U.S. military trainers.
Later Friday, the U.S. launched a second round of air-
strikes near Irbil, U.S. ofcials said. The ofcials, speaking
on condition of anonymity because they werent authorized
to discuss the strikes publicly, said unmanned aircraft hit a
mortar and four Navy F/A-18 ghter jets destroyed a seven-
vehicle convoy
Expanding from their stronghold of Mosul, the militants
have captured a string of towns and Iraqs largest hydroelec-
tric dam and reservoir in recent weeks. Ethnic and religious
minorities, fearing persecution and slaughter, have ed as
their towns fell.

Barack Obamas new military strategy
in Iraq amounts to trying to contain
not destroy the Islamic militant
group that now controls much of the
countrys northern region. That leaves
open the questions of how deeply the
U.S. will be drawn into the sectarian
conict, and whether airstrikes alone
can stop the militants momentum.
Obama insists he will not send
American ground troops back to Iraq
after having withdrawn them in 2011,
fullling a campaign promise. Still,
even the limited airstrikes against the
vicious insurgency show the presi-
dents conviction that the U.S. military
cannot remain dormant after having
fought an eight-year war that tempo-
rarily neutralized Sunni extremists but
failed to produce lasting peace.
U.S. military jets dropped food and
water to imperiled refugees in north-
western Iraq and launched several
airstrikes Friday on isolated targets,
including two mortar positions and a
vehicle convoy in northeastern Iraq,
near the countrys Kurdish capital of
Irbil. Additional airdrops and targeted
strikes were thought likely. The next
move may be up to the Islamic State
group, the al-Qaida inspired extrem-
ists who have chewed up Iraqi opposi-
tion so far.
About three dozen U.S. military
trainers and a U.S. consulate are in Ir-
bil, where Kurdish forces are ghting
off a militant advance. Thats no easy
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel
said of the Islamic State group, They
are well organized and theyre armed
and they are a signicant threat to the
stability of Iraq.
Will there be further airstrikes?
State Department deputy spokeswom-
an Marie Harf said the Islamic State
group must at least halt its advance on
Irbil to prevent further strikes.
Iraq has been pleading for months,
if not years, for additional U.S. mili-
tary help to combat the extremists, but
the U.S. pulled out of Iraq in part be-
cause it couldnt reach an agreement
with the government on legal im-
munity for U.S. troops. Harf said the
Obama administration acted now out
of concern that there was a crisis that
had the potential to get much worse.
U.S. ofcials said the Islamic State
extremists in recent days have shown
military skill, including using artillery
in sophisticated synchronization with
other heavy weapons. Their force had
overwhelmed not only Iraqi govern-
ment troops but also the outgunned
Kurdish militia.
The Obama administration stead-
fastly insists the airstrikes and hu-
manitarian airdrops are not the start
of an open-ended campaign to defeat
the militants.
The presidents critics say his ap-
proach is too narrow.
A policy of containment will not
work, Sens. John McCain and Lind-
sey Graham said in a joint statement.
They are among the chief critics of
Obamas foreign policy in general,
beginning with his decision to stick
to the 2011 timetable set by President
George W. Bush for a full withdrawal
of U.S. troops from Iraq.
The Islamic militants are in-
herently expansionist and must be
stopped, the senators said. The lon-
ger we wait to act, the worse this threat
will become.
Beyond airstrikes, the administra-
tion has been asked to provide arms
directly to the Kurdish forces de-
fending Irbil. Until now, the U.S. has
been willing to do that only through
the central government in Baghdad,
which has long feuded with the semi-
autonomous Kurdish government in
Iraqs north.
Michael Barbero, a retired Army
general who ran the U.S. training mis-
sion in Iraq from 2009 to 2011, said
Baghdad never delivered about $200
million worth of American weapons
that were designated for the Kurds.
Pentagon ofcials maintain they can
provide arms only to the Iraqi govern-
ment, although Harf said Friday the
Kurdish forces play a critical role in
the crisis.
Obamas Iraq aim: contain, not destroy, extremists
three-day truce collapsed Fri-
day in a new round of violence
after Gaza militants resumed
rocket attacks on Israel, draw-
ing a wave of retaliatory air-
strikes that killed at least ve
Palestinians, including three
children. The eruption of ght-
ing shattered a brief calm in
the monthlong war and dealt a
blow to Egyptian-led efforts to
secure a long-term cease-re
between the bitter enemies.
A delegation of Palestinian
negotiators remained in Cairo
in hopes of salvaging the talks.
But participants said the negoti-
ations were not going well, and
Israel said it would not negoti-
ate under re. The Palestinian
delegation met again late Friday
with Egyptian mediators.
Azzam al-Ahmad, head of
the Palestinian delegation, said
the delegation would stay in
Egypt until it reaches an agree-
ment that ensures the rights
of the Palestinian people. We
told Egyptians we are staying,
he told reporters.
The indirect talks are meant
to bring an end to the deadliest
round of ghting between Israel
and Hamas since the Islamic
militant group seized control of
Gaza in 2007. In four weeks of
violence, more than 1,900 Ga-
zans have been killed, roughly
three-quarters of them civil-
ians, according to Palestinian
and U.N. ofcials. Sixty-seven
people were killed on the Israeli
side, including three civilians.
The Palestinians are seek-
ing an end to an Israel-Egyptian
blockade imposed on Gaza af-
ter the Hamas takeover. Mili-
tants had warned they would
resume ghting after the cease-
re expired unless there was a
deal to ease the restrictions.
The blockade, which Israel
says is needed to prevent arms
smuggling, has constrained
movement in and out of the
territory of 1.8 million people
and brought Gazas economy
to a standstill. Israel says any
long-term agreement must in-
clude guarantees that Hamas,
an armed group sworn to Isra-
els destruction, will give up its
Israel-Hamas truce collapses in new violence

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A mild summer across much of
the nations heartland has provided optimum growing conditions
for the nations corn and soybean crops. Pair that with high-yield
seeds and other new farming technologies, and the U.S. is looking
at busting records come harvest time.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture already has predicted a re-
cord soybean crop of 3.8 billion bushels. And the corn crop, it said
in July, would be large but not bigger than last years record of 13.9
billion bushels. However, many market analysts and some farmers
expect the USDA to revise expectations upward in a report based
on eld surveys thats due out Tuesday.
Conditions look just fantastic across most of the country,
Texas A&M University grain marketing economist Mark Welch
In a typical growing season, at least some corn-growing states
would have experienced drought or other production problems.
But the 18 states that grow 91 percent of the nations corn have
experienced nearly ideal conditions this year, as adequate rain
fell when plants emerged and cooler summer temperatures mini-
mized heat stress.
Thats the case in Illinois, one of the nations top corn and soy-
bean states.
Illinois has largely been dealt to date pretty close to a royal
ush on weather and Im sure that the yields are going to be very
high here, said Scott Irwin, a University of Illinois professor of
agricultural and consumer economics.
The expected large harvest has driven corn and soybean prices
signicantly lower, but it isnt expected to make much of a short-
time difference in consumer food prices. However, since the grains
are staples in livestock feed, lower prices could eventually lead to a
decline in the cost of beef, pork, chicken and milk.

Saturday, August 9, 2014
Finish what you started a
long time ago. You have the
discipline and the ability to
realize some old goals. There
is an opportunity to make some
extra cash if you can turn your
efforts, talent or skills into a
sideline business.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) --
Make a move now. If you are
offered an interesting position,
accept the challenge it offers.
You are overdue for some
changes, and this can be the
frst step.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
-- Stay in control of a situation
that will infuence your future.
If you take action quickly, you
will receive positive results. Be
secretive to prevent others from
meddling in your affairs.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23) -- Keep your opinions
to yourself. Others may be
particularly disagreeable, so
work on something that you
can do alone. Being drawn into
petty arguments will be a waste
of time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) -- Add some zest to your
life. The use of all your talents
will lead you to a new business
venture. Keep working toward
your goal, and an amazing and
proftable project will develop.
23-Dec. 21) -- Avoid getting
involved in joint ventures. Your
generosity will cause problems.
Control your spending, and
keep tabs on how much you
have and how much you owe.
Jan. 19) -- If you dont want
to do something, dont be
afraid to say no. Have a heart-
to-heart talk with someone
who is making life diffcult
or uncertain. Trying to please
others will be emotionally and
physically draining for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 19) -- Unless you have the
relevant details, dont feel that
you have to make a decision.
Its likely that someone is
withholding the information
you need. Do your own fact-
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) -- Meeting people is easier
if you participate in community
activities and events. If you
follow your intuition, you will
meet someone who will lead
you down an exciting new path.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) -- Dont be too ready to
offer details about your plans.
Giving someone personal facts
or fgures could set you up for
a fall. Guard your interests
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) -- Spend more time doing
things you enjoy. Downtime is
just as important as time spent
working, especially when it
comes to mental health. Gather
your friends and have a good
time with them.
GEMINI (May 21-June
20) -- Take a look at your
bank account, assets and
valuable possessions. You may
have miscalculated expenses.
Do away with non-essential
purchases until you can get
your fnances sorted out.
CANCER (June 21-
July 22) -- Get all the facts.
Serious discussions should
be postponed until you
feel ready and capable of
acting responsibly. Legal or
governmental matters are best
handled with facts to back up
your position.

S. Stevens whose last place of residence is 515 Burt Street, Van Wert,

notice that on June 16, 2014, The Huntington National Bank succes-
sor by merger Sky Bank fled its Complaint in Case No. CV1406081 in
the Court of Common Pleas Van Wert County, Ohio alleging that the
Defendants Vanessa S. Stevens, John Doe, Unknown Spouse, if any,

estate described below:
Permanent Parcel Number: 12-030324.0000; Property Ad-
dress: 515 Burt Street, Van Wert, Ohio 45891. The legal de-
scription may be obtained from the Van Wert County Auditor
at 121 East Main Street, Van Wert, Ohio 45891, 419-238-0843.
The Petitioner further alleges that by reason of default of the Defen-
dants in the payment of a promissory note, according to its tenor, the
conditions of a concurrent mortgage deed given to secure the payment
of said note and conveying the premises described, have been broken,
and the same has become absolute. The Petitioner prays that the De-
fendants named above be required to answer and set up their interest
in said real estate or be forever barred from asserting the same, for
foreclosure of said mortgage, the marshaling of any liens, and the sale
of said real estate, and the proceeds of said sale applied to the pay-
ment of Petitioners Claim in the proper order of its priority, and for such
other and further relief as is just and equitable.

15-year-old girl who has
two younger brothers. My
parents are good people, but
they can be extremely harsh
and cruel. They curse us out
and scream at us for petty
things almost every day. I
told my best friend about it
and she said that it is emo-
tional abuse.
I disagree. I have always
been told that every parent
yells at their kids. Maybe
not every day, but regardless,
everyone gets mad some-
times. I honestly didnt even
think there was such a thing
as emotional abuse. I dont
know what to do. I have been
suffering this almost my en-
tire life. I didnt think that it
was abuse.
AM I being emotionally
abused? I would appreciate
your help. TIRED OF
swer to your question is yes,
your friend is correct. Be-
cause your parents have been
doing this on a regular basis,
it qualies as verbal/emo-
tional abuse. Be glad you
now recognize it, because
their lack of control isnt
Their anger and frustra-
tion may have nothing to do
with you and your siblings.
The problem with this kind
of abuse as opposed to
physical abuse is that al-
though it is damaging, it is
often not taken seriously.
If there are family mem-
bers or close friends who can
intervene, help your parents
to see how damaging their
lack of control is and con-
vince them to get help, you
should conde in them. It
might be a good idea for you
and your brothers to spend
as much time with friends
in healthier families as you
This will get you out of
the line of re and enable
you all to see what normal
family interactions are like.

been dating a divorced man,
Chris, for four years. He
has a son who is 16. On the
weekends Chris has his son,
I become the invisible girl-
friend. Sometimes the three
of us will go to a movie or
out to eat, but I am NEVER
welcome to spend the night.
Chris and I have talked about
living together, but never in
depth. Unless I bring it up,
he never says anything about
When Valentines Day
came around, Chris asked if
we could celebrate it a few
days late because he was
scheduled to have his son
that night. I was heartbro-
ken because even a Valentine
dinner for the three of us was
I am beginning to think
there is no future with Chris.
He seems ne just dating
and seeing me every other
weekend as someone to hang
out with, but not to commit
to. Suggestions? DIS-
When you started dating
Chris, his son was 12. It
seems to me that what he
has done is put his parenting
responsibilities before any-
thing else, and I respect that.
If romance and marriage
are what youre looking for,
I suggest you stop asking
Chris about living together
and ask instead about wheth-
er the two of you have a fu-
ture. Chris has been treating
you like a friend with ben-
ets for four years. The pat-
tern is set and it isnt likely to
change by itself.

Dear Heloise: When I
moved into a smaller place, it
was hard to arrange my large
furniture without covering up
electrical outlets. I purchased
heavy-duty EXTENSION
CORDS with the multiplug
end, plugged them in and
snaked them around the fur-
niture so I have a convenient
plug. Deborah F., via email
Readers, remember to not
run an extension cord under
a rug or the carpet it can
be a re hazard. Be sure its
a heavy-duty extension cord,
and you may want to check it
occasionally to be sure its in
good condition. Please note
this advice for a home ofce,
too! Heloise
Dear Heloise: My kitty
uses her cat tower and as-
sorted claw mats, but she also
likes to claw my rugs. Im
ready to replace a large area
rug, and wonder what type of
fabric and type of loop would
best stand up. I try to keep her
claws trimmed, but I refuse to
have her declawed. Any words
of advice? A Reader, via
Meow! I dont know if
there is fabric or loop that can
survive a cats claws. Loop
type most probably is worse
the cat has something to
pull on! You can try the nail
caps they have for cats. They
are glued on, like a fake nail.
Your cat can keep her nails,
and it would save your rugs.
Call your veterinarian to see if
he or she provides this service.
Hope this helps! Heloise

Dear Heloise: Heres an
idea for your readers with
chimineas. (Heloise here: A
chiminea is a free-standing,
front-loading ceramic re-
place.) Place a owerpot sau-
cer on top of your chiminea
(when not in use) and ll it
with water. Voila! A high-rise
birdbath for your backyard
birds, who will appreciate re-
lief from the heat. Denise

Dear Heloise: I love mak-
ing pancakes for my kids,
and to jazz things up, I make
different shapes of pancakes.
Sometimes I use a cookie cut-
ter to cut out a shape after the
pancake is done. I make ow-
ers and even the state of Tex-
as! Janice in Texas
Dear Readers: Sandra in
Oklahoma asked how to dry
clean baseball or gimme
caps, as some in Texas call
them (meaning when a com-
pany is handing out the hats
with the company name on
them, its a thanks for giving
me that cap). After cleaning,
put it over a 3-pound coffee
can to dry. Heloise

WASHINGTON (AP) Average long-
term U.S. mortgage rates rose slightly this
week but remained near their lows for the year.
Mortgage company Freddie Mac
(NYSE:FRE) said Thursday the nationwide
average for a 30-year loan inched up to 4.14
percent from 4.12 percent last week. The aver-
age for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice
for people who are renancing, rose to 3.27
percent from 3.23 percent last week.
Mortgage rates are below the levels of a
year ago. They have fallen in recent weeks
after climbing last summer when the Federal
Reserve began talking about reducing the
monthly bond purchases it was making to keep
long-term borrowing rates low.
The Fed issued a statement last week sug-
gesting that it wants to see further improve-
ment in the economy before it starts raising its
key short-term interest rate. The central bank
offered no clearer hint of when it will raise that
rate, which is at a record low near zero.
At 4.14 percent, the rate on a 30-year mort-
gage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of
the year. Rates have fallen even though the Fed
has been trimming its monthly bond purchas-
es. The purchases are set to end in October.
Home prices rose in June by the smallest
year-over-year amount in 20 months, data re-
leased Tuesday showed, slowed by modest
sales and more properties coming on the mar-

Because the resolutions committee
was so slow in completing its labors the
convention adjourned until 1 oclock. Af-
ter the recess Mr. Allen of Kansas moved
that the convention proceed to nominate
candidates for president and vice presi-
In due time, when the seconding
speeches were over, William D. Lewis,
dean of the law school of the University
of Pennsylvania, chairman of he commit-
tee on resolutions, read the platform. This
document varies widely, most dramati-
cally, from the platforms of the Repub-
lican and Democratic national parties.
Especially does it condemn the Payne-
Aldrich tariff law and the Democratic
tariff plank at Baltimore, and in addition
it demands the immediate repeal of the
Canadian reciprocity act.
The platform leads off as follows:
The Progressive party, committed
to the principle of government by a self-
controlled democracy expressing its will
through representatives of the people,
pledges itself to secure such alterations
in the fundamental law of the several
states and of the United States as shall
insure the representative character of the
government. In particular the party de-
clares for direct primaries for the nomi-
nation of state and national ofcers, for
nation-wide preferential primaries for
candidates for the presidency, for the di-
rect election of United States senators by
the people, and we urge on the states the
policy of the short ballot, with responsi-
bility to the people secured by the initia-
tive, referendum and recall.
The Progressive party, believing that
a free people should have the power from
time to time to amend their fundamental
law so as to adapt it progressively to the
changing needs of the people, pledges
itself to provide a more easy and expedi-
tious method of amending the fundamen-
tal constitution.
(From page A5)
After two weeks at the con-
vention, Roosevelt also real-
ized the inevitable outcome
and took his supporters to the
Auditorium Theatre in August
where they formed the new
Progressive Party. The hastily
arranged convention became
more of a re and brimstone
revival, preaching the vir-
tues of progressive ideas. The
party planks introduced many
tenets that set them apart from
both the Republican and Dem-
ocrat ideals, including:
- Limits and disclosures on
political contributions
- Registration of lobbyists
- The formation of a Na-
tional Health Service
- Social insurance for the
elderly, unemployed, and dis-
- An eight-hour work day
- Minimum wage for wom-
- Voting rights for women
- The formation of a Fed-
eral Securities Commission
- Constitutional Amend-
ment for a federal income tax
- Direct election of U.S.
- The passage of a federal
inheritance tax
Roosevelt ran an exten-
sive campaign. At one point
reporters asked him how he
felt and he replied, Im feel-
ing like a bull moose. The
remark hit a chord with the
journalists and the nickname
for the progressives became
the Bull Moose Party.
Ultimately, Roosevelt did
not have enough money or
political support to win. He
nished second to Woodrow
Wilson by a long way, 435
electoral votes to Teddys 88,
but still handily defeated the
incumbent Taft who could
only muster eight electoral
college votes.
Here now is a partial re-
print of an August 8, 1912,
Van Wert Daily Bulletin arti-
cle detailing Teddy Roosevelt
accepting the Progressive Par-
ty nomination for President.

As a society we are too chaotic. We need
to be in our schools and in our communities.
When I was young and I did something wrong,
there was a neighbor on their front porch who
would see me and tell my parents. I hated those
conversations but they put me on the right
track. We need to get back on our front porches
and get our youth engaged and involved. It will
bring greater peace, greater safety and greater
success. We need to grab our kids and point
them to the stars. We can rejuvenate America
starting with Ohio.
Kasich also made campaign stops in Belle-
fontaine, Bowling Green and Bryan on Friday.
He will visit Port Clinton, Tifn, Marion and
Delaware on Saturday. He faces Democrat Ed
FitzGerald in the November election.
More than 250 Republican faithful joined Governor John Kasich at Wannemacher

After a front page story,
word got out. Then evidence
of caring people in the Van
Wert area was seen.
The response to the news
of our food pantry food short-
age a little better than a week
ago was nothing short of
amazing. Food products and
private cash donations started
coming through our doors
immediately, Barter stated.
Several local businesses
stepped up to the plate with
large donations. Leland Smith
Insurance Services, Statewide
Ford, and First Federal of Van
Wert got together and gave a
combined gift of $2,000.
The donation total sur-
passed $10,000 with another
$2,000 of canned and boxed
food stuffs also donated.
Barter noted that need has
increased at the Food Pantry
with approximately 250 fami-
lies being helped last month.
At the same time, donations
have decreased. That is, until
two weeks ago.
The donations from the
United Way Day of Caring
used to last us seven to eight
months, but they are only last-
ing three to four months now,
Barter said. This time we
had maybe a weeks worth of
food left; the people just really
started to come forward.
The Salvation Army is
in the midst of an upcom-
ing move to 120 N. Cherry
St. in Van Wert, the former
home of Vineyard Christian
Fellowship. Even with all the
preparations being made, the
additional energy had to be
put into the Food Pantry. The
ministry of continuing to help
those less fortunate in the
community drives Barter and
all the volunteers of the Salva-
tion Army.
Even though people may
have jobs, the cost of groceries
have gone up and they have to
supplement things somehow.
Even if they get food stamps,
they are still having to hit the
local food pantries to put food
on the table, Barter pointed
With the donations from
the past two weeks, Barter be-
lieves the pantry will remain
stocked until the United Way
Day of Caring Food Drive on
Sept. 26, which should bring
in around 30,000 food items.
But he is still a little over-
whelmed with the response
from the community over the
past 14 days.
It is this kind of response
to our call for help that allows
us to serve in this community
and throughout the county
with distinction. he said.
God Bless you and thanks for
your support!

Q: I received a gift of property from my par-
ents. Do I have to pay taxes on its value?
A: No. You do not have to report the gifted
asset as income. However, if you sell the property
at a later time, then you will have to pay income
taxes based on your parents basis. Basis is the
amount a person pays to purchase a property plus
whatever the person spent to improve the prop-
erty. For example, lets say a couple paid $15,000
for their home in 1950. When they deeded the
house to their only son in 2014, its value was
$100,000. When their son sells the home, he will
have a capital gain of $85,000. The son will have
to pay taxes on this capital gain amount.

publican National Committee erased
any scintilla of doubt on Friday when
its members cast a unanimous vote to
make Cleveland the host of its 2016
national convention.
The vote, which came during the
RNCs summer meeting in Chicago,
puts the pressure on the host orga-
nizing committee to raise the $60
million it promised Republicans to
cover some of the convention costs.
Unofcially, estimates are that
between $25 million and $30 million
has been pledged thus far. The pri-
vate, nonprot JobsOhio has pledged
$10 million while Cleveland and
Cuyahoga County have pledged $2.5
million each. A number of Greater
Cleveland-based corporations have
made pledges as well.
Terry Egger, executive chairman
of the organizing committee, would
not say during an interview Wednes-
day with The Associated Press how
much has been raised. He did say
that fundraising efforts to this point
primarily have been local. Egger said
the host committee will be working
with the RNC to expand its fundrais-
ing reach.
Well collectively pursue nation-
al opportunities, he said. It will be
corporate primarily, but it could be
private, too.
There is no hard deadline for
when Cleveland raises the total
amount promised to RNC members,
Egger said. But he also said the com-
mittees motto is, the sooner, the
After the dollars are raised, we
can focus on the execution and our
partnership with the RNC, Egger
This will be the rst time Cleve-
land has hosted a national convention
since 1936. The city was a nalist for
the 2012 Republican convention that
was held in Tampa, but it lost that bid
in part because it lacked enough ho-
tels rooms in close proximity to the
convention site, Quicken Loans Are-
na. A urry of hotel construction and
renovation in the last several years
convinced the RNC site selection
committee that Cleveland was ready
to host an event that is expected to
bring as many as 50,000 people to
The host committee has begun
working with the RNC to develop
a transportation plan for how it will
move delegates quickly back and
forth from their hotels and other ven-
ues to the arena. Tampas convention
was plagued by transportation prob-
lems due in part to hotels being as
much as an hour away from the con-
vention site.
One of the reasons Cleveland was
selected was RNC chairman Reince
Preibus preference for an earlier-
than-normal starting date. The con-
vention could begin as soon as June
28. Republican ofcials in Texas said
a June start all but eliminated Dallas
from the competition. Denver was
the other nalist to host the conven-
Given the abysmal record of the
NBAs Cleveland Cavaliers, a June
start did not seem a problem when
the organizing committee voted for
Cleveland on July 8. But that was be-
fore Akron native and four-time NBA
MVP LeBron James announced he
would be returning to the Cavaliers,
a move that makes the team one of
the favorites to reach the NBA nals.

FitzGerald: I was careless to let drivers license lapse
Associated Press
(AP) Democratic guber-
natorial hopeful Ed FitzGer-
ald said Friday he was care-
less in letting his drivers
license lapse for more than
10 years and that he waited
too long to correct it.
FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga
County executive, returned
to the campaign trail after a
week that has seen him face
questions about his drivers
record and an incident when
police found him in his car
with a woman other than his
wife early one morning in
October 2012.
His driving record has
drawn scrutiny because
of the incident, which was
first reported a week ago.
He later said nothing inap-
propriate happened in the
car, and that he and the
woman, who was part of a
visiting Irish delegation,
had stopped because they
were trying to connect with
others in their group travel-
ing separately.
His license expired in
2002, and he didnt get a
new, permanent one until
November 2012, his cam-
paign has said. Ohio records
show that FitzGerald had
temporary permits starting
in 2008, but he lacked one
for more than a year until he
got a license.
I was careless. I made a
mistake, he said.
FitzGerald was campaign-
ing across northern Ohio on
Friday. At his rst stop in in
Port Clinton along Lake Erie,
he talked about water quality
issues in the wake of toxins
being found in the drinking
water supplied to 400,000
people around Toledo.
He said he wants to get
back to talking about is-
sues that matter to Ohioans
and doesnt think questions
about his driving record will
continue to follow his cam-
FitzGerald accused his
opponent, Republican in-
cumbent Gov. John Kasich,
of failing to protect Lake
Erie. The governor, he said,
has gone against proposals
that could have helped re-
duce the blue-green algae
polluting the lake and linked
to the water warnings in To-
The state has been drag-
ging its feet for a long time,

NEW YORK (AP) Carlos Bel-
tran hit a grand slam and drove in
ve runs as the New York Yankees
broke out to support improbable ll-
in starter Esmil Rogers and beat the
sloppy Cleveland Indians 10-6 on
Friday night for their sixth win in
seven games.
Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner
with his 3,430th hit in a ve-run rst
inning against Trevor Bauer (4-7)
and Beltrans 11th career slam high-
lighted a ve-run sixth. The Indians,
who have the majors worst elding
percentage, prolonged both innings
with errors in their fourth straight
loss overall and seventh in a row in
the Bronx.
The Yankees walked seven times
in moving seven games above .500
(61-54) for the rst time this season.
Picked up off waivers on July 31
after the Toronto Blue Jays cut him
for the second time this season, Rog-
ers (2-0) became the 12th player to
make a start for New York.
Pitching in place of David Phelps
(elbow inammation), he allowed
one run and four hits over ve in-
nings in his rst start since Sept. 25
for Toronto and threw 88 pitches
45 was his high this season coming
Rogers outing followed four ne
starts by a makeshift rotation against
the Detroit Tigers heralded staff.
Three of those came from pitch-
ers who made their rst start for the
Yankees in July: Brandon McCarthy,
Chris Capuano and Shane Greene.
The Yankees took advantage of
three walks by Bauer in the rst in-
ning. Beltran, Stephen Drew and
Martin Prado had RBI singles and
another run scored on second base-
man Jason Kipnis throwing error.
Bauer was charged with ve runs
and six hits in 3 1-3 innings.
John Axford walked the bases
loaded one intentional before
Beltran connected to make it 9-2.
Yankees reliever Shawn Kelley
walked in a run in Clevelands four-
run seventh. Carlos Santana had a
two-run double in the inning.

Woods was 109th place after Thurs-
day, his only realistic goal to make the
He wasnt even close.
Woods lipped out a 3-foot birdie at-
tempt at the third, missing a chance to
gain some momentum. He followed with
a bogey at No. 4, after driving into a fair-
way bunker, and took a double bogey at
the sixth when he drove far left of the
fairway and three-putted from 18 feet.
Still reeling from that debacle, he yanked
his tee shot at the par-5 seventh into a
muddy bog, could only pitch up to the
fairway, pulled the next shot behind the
green, failed to reach the short grass with
his chip, and made another bogey.
The back nine was better a couple
of birdies, one bogey but it didnt mat-
ter at that point.
Wood was all done at this PGA, still
stuck on 14 major titles, the last one com-
ing more than six years ago.
McIlroy, on the other hand, is at the top
of his game. He arrived at Valhalla having
won his last two tournaments. He captured
the British Open at Royal Liverpool with a
wire-to-wire performance, and rallied for
a victory at Firestone last weekend.
Midway through the nal major of the
year, he is once again the guy everyone
is chasing.
Im condent, McIlroy said. Im
really in control of my game and my
emotions. I need to do that over the week-
end as well.
He dropped a shot with a bogey at the
12th, but birdied two of the next three
holes. He seized the outright lead for the
rst time with the long putt at No. 18 and
nearly made another eagle at the par-5
seventh. He stuck a shot from 243 yards
to 8 feet, but the putt stayed right of the
McIlroy grimaced and rolled back his
No problem.
He closed with another birdie at the
ninth, nishing off his round by curling
in a 16-footer that left him at 9-under 133
McIlroy is going for his fourth major
title at age 25, having already won the
PGA Championship at Kiawah in 2012.
Hes got plenty of youth behind him
Fowler is 25, Day 26.
The old-timers didnt fare too shabby,
Steve Stricker a 47-year-old, part-
time player who was picked as an assis-
tant U.S. Ryder Cup captain this week
showed hes still got plenty of game. He
made four birdies on his rst nine holes
on the way to a 68, which left him four
shots back along with Westwood. Also at
5 under were Graham DeLaet (68), Vic-
tor Dubuisson (68), Joost Luiten (69),
Henrik Stenson (71).
Kentucky native Kenny Perry will get
to celebrate his 54th birthday on Sun-
day at Valhalla after shooting 69. A pair
of 51-year-olds, Vijay Singh and Colin
Montgomerie, also made the cut.
A steady rain forced ofcials to sus-
pend the round after just 20 minutes
because of too much water on the put-
ting surfaces and fairways. Work crews
already were using squeegees on the
greens when another burst of showers hit
Play was halted as Palmer was playing

LeBron says hell stay with
Cavs beyond contract
AP Sports Writer
AKRON, Ohio (AP) LeBron James is home and hes not
leaving again.
The NBA superstar said he intends to play the rest of his
career with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team he returned to
last month after four seasons in Miami.
When he re-signed with the Cavs to a two-year, $41 million
contract that included an option after one year, there was spec-
ulation he would one day test free agency again. The contract
made Cleveland fans nervous, but they can now relax.
I dont plan on going nowhere, James said. I dont have
the energy to do it again.
James, who returned to Northeast Ohio after winning two
NBA titles, was welcomed back with a homecoming event t
for a King.
Nearly 25,000 people, some of whom waited in line for six
hours and many of them wearing James jerseys, were on hand
in InfoCision Stadium on the University of Akron campus, not
far from where the 29-year-old bounced his rst basketball.
James was back and the city that helped raise him welcomed
him with open arms. The welcome-home party coincided with
James annual I Promise campaign for area children spon-
sored by his family foundation.
Its pretty amazing, said James, who was joined at his
news conference by several kids. Im not gonna sit up here and
say its not. To know you can inspire so many people from the
youth to I heard I got a grandmas club with 200-plus members.
To know you can do things for people, give them hope, give
them inspiration. It means a lot to me. I understand Im a role
model. I understand to these kids Im more than a role model.
Im a superhero to them. Im a father to them. Im a brother to
them, whatever the case they want me to be on that particular
Although he was playing for the Heat, James said his heart
was always back home and he realized it was time to return.
It just hit me, he said. Sometimes you just have a feeling.

College football and bas-
ketball players could be in
line for paydays worth thou-
sands of dollars once they
leave school after a land-
mark ruling Friday that may
change the way the NCAA
does business.
A federal judge ruled that
the NCAA cant stop play-
ers from selling the rights to
their names, images and like-
nesses, striking down NCAA
regulations that prohibit them
from getting anything other
than scholarships and the cost
of attendance at schools.
U.S. District Judge Clau-
dia Wilken in Oakland, Cali-
fornia, ruled in favor of for-
mer UCLA basketball star
Ed OBannon and 19 others
in a lawsuit that challenged
the NCAAs regulation of
college athletics on antitrust
grounds. The injunction she
issued allows players at big
schools to have money gen-
erated by television con-
tracts put into a trust fund to
pay them when they leave.
In a partial victory for
the NCAA, though, Wilken
said the body that governs
college athletics could set
a cap on the money paid to
athletes, as long as it allows
at least $5,000 per athlete
per year of competition. In-
dividual schools could of-
fer less money, she said, but
only if they dont unlawfully
conspire among themselves
to set those amounts.
That means FBS foot-
ball players and Division I
basketball players who are
on rosters for four years
could potentially get around
$20,000 when they leave
school. Wilken said she set
the $5,000 annual thresh-
old to balance the NCAAs
fears about huge payments
to players.
The NCAAs witnesses
stated that their concerns
about student-athlete com-
pensation would be mini-
mized or negated if compen-
sation was capped at a few
thousand dollars per year,
Wilken wrote.
The NCAA said it dis-
agreed with the decision, but
was still reviewing it.
But Sonny Vaccaro, the
former athletic shoe rep-
resentative who recruited
OBannon to launch the suit,
said it was a huge win for
college athletes yet to come.
The kids who are going
to benet from this are kids
who dont even know what
we did today, Vaccaro said.
It may only be $5,000 but
its $5,000 more than they
get now.
The ruling comes af-
ter a ve-year battle by
OBannon and others on
behalf of college athletes to
receive a share of the billions
of dollars generated by col-
lege athletics by huge tele-
vision contracts. OBannon,
who was MVP of the 1995
UCLA national champion-
ship basketball team, said
he signed on as lead plain-
tiff after seeing his image in
a video game authorized by
the NCAA that he was not
paid for.
Any payments to athletes
would not be immediate.
The ruling said regulations
on pay will not take effect
until the start of the next
FBS football and Division I
basketball recruiting cycle.
Wilken said they will not af-
fect any prospective recruits
before July 1, 2016. The
NCAA could also appeal,
and has said previously that
it would take the issue all the
way to the Supreme Court.
Former athletes will not
be paid, because they gave
up their right to damages in
a pre-trial move so the case
would be heard by a judge,
not a jury.
As part of her ruling,
Wilken rejected both the
NCAAs denition of ama-
teurism and its justica-
tion for not paying players.
But she did not prohibit the
NCAA from enforcing all
of its other rules and regu-
lations and said that some
restrictions on paying play-
ers may still serve a limited
purpose if they are necessary
to maintain the popularity of
major college football and

CINCINNATI (AP) Nathan Eovaldi
gave his second straight shutdown perfor-
mance, holding Cincinnati to ve hits over
eight shutout innings, and Giancarlo Stan-
ton hit his NL-leading 28th homer on Fri-
day night, powering the Miami Marlins to
a 2-1 victory.
The Reds fell to 8-13 since the All-Star
break, a slide that has them stranded in
fourth place in the NL Central.
Eovaldi (6-6) got his rst victory since
June 23, ending a streak of three losses and
four no-decisions. He was coming off what
was his best performance of the second half
of the season seven innings of one-run
ball in a 2-1 win over the Reds last Satur-
day. He didnt get the decision in that one.
He threw 112 pitches, his last one
clocked at 99 mph. Eovaldi walked one and
struck out six while going eight innings for
the second time this season.
Devin Mesoraco doubled home a run in
the ninth off Steve Cishek, who then fanned
Zack Cozart with two runners aboard to get
his 28th save in 31 chances. Todd Frazier
had three of Cincinnatis seven hits.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia had a bases-load-
ed sacrice y in the sixth inning off Mike
Leake (9-10) and Stanton hit a solo shot in
the seventh, ending the right-handers per-
fect career mark against the Marlins. Leake
had been 3-0 in three starts against them
with a 1.93 ERA.
Casey McGehee hit his second double
of the game with one out in the sixth, and
Leake walked Garrett Jones and hit Marcell
Ozuna to load the bases for Saltalamac-
chias run-scoring y to center. Stanton
homered with two outs in the seventh.
Cincinnatis Brayan Pena singled in the
second inning, giving him a 12-game hit-
ting streak that matches his career high. His
left hamstring tightened after he reached
base, and he left the game as a precaution
after the inning.
Marlins: Left-hander Dan Jennings was
released from a Pittsburgh hospital on Fri-
day, a day after he was hit in the head by
Jordy Mercers line drive. After getting a
scan, he was cleared to y back to Florida.

On a soggy day at Valhalla,
Rory McIlroy put himself in a
familiar position at the top
of the leaderboard in the PGA
For Tiger Woods, this also
is becoming the norm.
Another major disappoint-
ment. Hes heading home for
the weekend.
McIlroy, the overwhelm-
ing favorite from Northern
Ireland, started on the back
nine after a 50-minute rain de-
lay Friday, made a couple of
early birdies, then claimed the
outright lead for the rst time
when he rolled in a 30-foot
eagle putt at the 18th hole.
McIlroy picked up two
more birdies in his nal three
holes for a 4-under 67, good
enough for a one-shot lead
over Jason Day and Jim Fu-
ryk. Day turned in the best
round of the day with a 65,
and Furyk had a 68.
Rickie Fowler and Ryan
Palmer were two shots back,
with Fowler surging into con-
tention again at a major by
shooting 66. He is already the
rst player since Woods in
2005 to nish in the top ve
of the rst three majors of the
And dont forget Phil
Mickelson, who rolled in an
8-footer for eagle at the nal
hole for a 67. Lefty was just
three shots back.
Woods, meanwhile, strug-
gled to his second straight 74
and failed to make the cut at a
major for only the fourth time
in his professional career.
That was tough, Woods
said. I hit a lot of shots out
there. Seventy-four of em. It
was a long day.
Palmer was tied for the
lead after the opening round
with Lee Westwood and Kevin
Chappell. Palmer turned in
the best follow-up from that
group, shooting 70 to stay
rmly in the mix. Westwood
faded a bit with a 73 and was
four shots back. Chappell
struggled to a 74 and dropped
six strokes off the pace.
