Council OKs healthcare facility tax exemption


BY NANCY SPENCER
DHI Media Editor
nspencer@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS The city now has a


Community Reinvestment Area agreement with Ramsey Development, LLC,
and Trilogy Health Services, LLC, for a
healthcare facility near U.S. 30 on Ambrose
Drive.
The agreement is for a 100-percent tax
exemption for 15 years on the $8.5 million
structure. Another $500,000 in equipment
and $1.7 million in furniture and fixtures is
not included in the exemption.

The approximately 55,000-squarefoot facility will bring about 100 jobs to


Delphos. Safety Service Director Shane
Coleman said the facility will employ 65
full-time and 35 part-time employees with a
payroll of approximately $2.6 million.
Council suspended the rules and passed
the ordinance on second reading to expedite
the process.
Delphos City Schools Board of Education
approved the tax exemption at a special
meeting on Thursday.
Taxpayers will decide on a fiveyear, 4.5-mill renewal levy for current
operating expenses on the November

Presidential Election Ballot. The levy,


first approved in 1976, provides an
approximate $168,000 per year to the
citys General Fund.
Approving the levy will not increase a
residents taxes as the rates approved in
1976 continue through the life of the levy.
Once council approves the ordinance, it will
be go to the Allen County Auditor to be
certified for the official amount.
Coleman updated council on projects in
the works in the city. The north water tower
is being drained this week so the inside can
be sandblasted and painted in line with routine maintenance. Resident may see some

discolorations in their water.


If a resident does see their water is a
funny color, if running the tap for a while
doesnt take care of the problem, they need
to call the city and/or water department,
Coleman said.
The water department is also replacing
the carbon in the facility.
The old filters at the pool have also
been removed and we expect the new filters
to be delivered within the next two weeks
and well get those installed and be ready to
start the new pool season, Coleman said.

Farmland still
popular, solid
investment

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

What is FFA? It is more than a program or an organization, Wolfe said. It teaches leadership, success,
personal growth and gives us better leaders for tomorrow. These students represent both schools very well and
with pride. This FFA chapter has produced 100 State FFA
Degrees, 75 American Degrees and was ranked in the top
10 in the state and No. 1 two years in a row in 12 of the
last 15 years. They are doing something right.

DELPHOS In 2013, farmland sold for record sums


and the prices remained high for a long time, according
to Ron Spencer of Ron Spencer Realty. Now, however,
Spencer said current prices are almost two-thirds less than
the price was in 2013.
Not so good, Spencer said. We may see this for a
couple of years.
Spencer does think farmland prices have held up well
even though the land isnt going for as much as previously.
Prices do fluctuate, of course. For example, a recent sale in
Defiance had 411. 5 acres going for $1.9 million or $4,617
an acre. But the inverse is also true. Spencer recently sold
a farm in Madison County for $15,000 an acre and not so
long ago, a Mercer County farm went for $17,000 an acre.
Farmland is still a popular and solid investment and
Spencer gave two reasons why. First, many investors see
banks interest rates as a disincentive and investments in
the stock market are always at risk of a market drop.
Land is land, he said. It seems like all of it is holding
its value quite well. There are people who are concerned
about the current interest rates banks are paying and it
looks like farmland is a better investment.
The second reason Spencer noted is (farm) land is
always going to be there and owners do get a return off of
it every year.
Jessica Merschman, a realtor with Schrader Realty,
says prices also depend on what people are buying
cropland for production or protection. The average
price locally is $9,500 an acre but she has sold some for
$11,800 an acre.
Merschman added a few more reasons why farmland
prices are doing well. Some people are buying farmland
to keep hog farmers from building on the land. It seems
no one wants a hog farm as a neighbor; the strong smell is
off putting. She added that there is less and less farmland
available for sale as well.

Canal Commission
volunteers honored
BY KAY LOUTH
DHI Media Staff Writer
klouth@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS When the call for
help with projects and tasks at the
Canal Museum goes out to the public, those calls do not go unanswered.
The Canal Commission can count on
30 people, excluding the trustees, to
help finish projects and maintain the
museum.
On Sunday, the Canal Commission
hosted a thank-you meal at the museum for their volunteers. President Lou
Hohman explained the volunteers
did everything from helping at the
Christmas Tree Festival, giving tours
and helping with multiple tasks around
the museum. Some he said were donors.
The volunteer hours are unreal up

here, Hohman said.


Even on the day that volunteers
were honored, some were checking on
the progress of the newest project at the
museum.
A working model train display is
being added to the basement. Right
now, volunteers continue working on
the 2x2 base for the display. Its an
ambitious project and they plan to have
it up and running by July of this year.
Dave Desenberg, designer and eventually manager, detailed what the model
train project would look like when
completed.
It would have two tracks, one for a
passenger train running on the outside
track and a commercial train running
on the inside track.
See CANAL, page 14

An NCAA title
game for the ages
- as it should be
That was one
Jim Metcalfe
heck of a National
Championship game
Monday night.
A North Carolina
fan is most likely disappointed beyond all
belief at the way they
lost it.
The what-if game
is already being
played out: if only wed have made this play, or not done that
play or made that mistake or missed THOSE free throws or
let that guy be that wide open for the game-winner.
Villanova fans and Im sure there are more than a few
of them are incredibly happy at not only winning the game
but beating one of college basketballs premier blue-blood
programs, especially that way.
Wildcat partisans can also say what if wed have made that
play earlier or made that change, etc., etc. (read above).
The title game in really any sport where it comes down
to a 1-game-settles-all format should go down to the wire:
there is nothing more boring than an ultimate game being a
snooze-fest and a blowout.
Jay Wright has shown what a great coach he is, leading
Nova to its first title since the magical 1985 season under
Rollie Massimino.
Its almost kind of nice to see a relative upstart lets face
it, how many of us had the likes of Kansas, UNC, Michigan
State and Kentucky (all with the lottery pick and 1-and-done
talents) in their Final Four?
Not many had Oklahoma, Syracuse and Villanova in there.
The thing is for both teams, they have a lot of underclassmen that could return but, unfortunately, a few will declare for
the NBA Draft.
Now, how many are going to watch the womens final
involving 3-time defending champion Connecticut and
Syracuse?
Or should I say the Huskies re-coronation?
What Geno and his women have done over the last four
years and the previous decade-plus in Storrs is utterly
mind-boggling.
I cannot explain how a team and even individuals never
seem to have a bad game in how many seasons.

The Herald 7

Engel dazzles as Pilots top Lancers


Defense dooms
Cats vs. Bulldogs
BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

ELIDA There were two


good things about Jeffersons
non-league baseball game
versus Elida at Ed Sandy
Memorial Field at the Elida
Sports Complex.
The weather was dry and
there was no wind.
On the other hand, it was
a downright cold early-spring
afternoon.
Poor defense by the visiting Wildcats in this last-minute pickup game seven
errors was their undoing in
a 14-8 loss.
After Jefferson (1-4)
was the beneficiary of four
unearned run in the top of the
second to take a 4-0 lead, the
Bulldogs (4-1) countered with
11 in the home half three of
them earned against lefty
Jacob Pulford and reliever
Andrew Foust. Elida sent 14
batters to the dish, getting
five hits and three walks,
along with the five miscues
committed by the Wildcats.
Logan Alexander had the big
hit, a 2-run single that plated
Scott McDonnell and Owen
Anderson, and McDonnell
(Cade Parker), Anderson
(TJ Whipple) and Austin
Morrison (Riley Bartels) also
knocked in runs with singles.
The rest were scored via the
errors or fielders choices to
make it 11-4, Elida.
Jefferson got three back
in the top of the fourth with
two outs against starter Dylan
Holcomb. With Andrew
Foust on, Jace Stockwell
singled, Damian Dudgeon
legged out an infield hit and
Gage Mercer scored the first
two on a double to deep
left. After Pulford walked,
Dudgeon scored from third
on a wild pitch and the other
runners advanced but were
left stranded.
Elida made it 12-6 in the
bottom of the fourth on a
run-scoring knock to center
that plated Bartels.
The visitors left runners on
second (Dudgeon) and third
(Stockwell) in the top of the
sixth.
The Bulldogs added their
final runs in the home sixth
on a 2-run triple to center,
scoring pinch-hitter Cody
Gay and Morrison.
The Wildcats didnt go
down quietly in the visiting seventh. Elida reliever
Alexander hit Easton Siefker
to lead it off; Darius Shurelds
and Brett Mahlie walked
around a wild pitch and
strikeout to load the bases.
Foust beat out a run-scoring
infield hit to short to plate
Siefker for that 14-8 lead.
However, the Wildcats left
the bases loaded to end the
game.
The Red and White got
on the board first in the top
of the second. With one out,

Jordan Boop singled and


Tyler Schrider singled to left.
An out later, a dropped throw
allowed Foust to get on board,
plate Boop and prolong the
inning. Stockwells knock to
left plated Shrider from third.
After a double steal by Foust
and Stockwell, Dudgeon
knocked both in with a slap
to center for a 4-0 edge.
Outside of that one
inning, we had a lot of positives. We had a lot of good
at-bats that produced for us,
as opposed otherwise when
we didnt have any success,
Jefferson head coach Doug
Geary said. We just had the
bad second where we had
early walks, committed some
errors and couldnt limit the
damage. We havent played
since Tuesday, so I called
Coach (Todd) Grapner to see
if we could get a game in and
get some innings to try and
get back on track.
We took advantage of
what we were given as far
as Jeffersons errors, as well
as some walks and some nice
hits, Grapner added. Were
looking to get some innings
in as well, especially some of
the younger guys that need
it, so this was a nice chance
we took when Doug called
me last night. We got some
innings for two of our guys,
Dylan and Logan, that we
havent had the chance to
get on the mound this spring.
They did pretty well.

MIDDLE POINT Ayersville


left-handed pitcher Eric Engel held the
Lincolnview Lancers to just two hits
through five innings Tuesday.
Engel also struck 11 batters on his
way to shutting out the Lincolnview
batters and his offense gave him more
than enough support as the Pilots won
the game 10-0 in five innings.
Tuesday night was unseasonably
cold; by the time Lincolnview starter
Derek Youtsey tossed the first pitch of
the game, the temperature was only 33
degrees.
It took until the fourth inning until
the bats finally thawed as Ayersville put
up nine runs in the frame. The rally started when Dauson Dales got hit by a pitch
and then two more batters reached base
by being beaned. By the time the inning
ended, Ayersville had five batters reach
base without putting lumber on the ball.
The fourth inning we really got
going. Dauson took one for the team, so

Vogt

(Continued from page 6)


Ditto blooped a hit into
short left center, Warnecke
bunted him up a base and
Reindels single put runners on the corners. Reindel
stole second but Ditto got
picked off third by M.
Youngpeter. Reindel stole
third and pinch-hitter Owen
Baldauf walked. An error on
Schwinnens grounder plated
Reindel for an 8-1 edge.
Linder doubled to the
fence in center to get Baldauf
and Schwinnen home. Lotz
came on in relief but when J.
Youngpeters grounder was
misplayed, Linder hustled in
to score and end the game.
This was Erics first outing this spring except for a
scrimmage. I wasnt sure

Musings

about his control coming out


and he was a bit wild to
begin with with two walks,
St. Johns head coach Jerry
Jackson explained. After the
first inning, he settled down
and pitched very well. He
gives us a nice 1-2 punch
with Jacob and I think Josh is
a solid third. We put the ball
in play and had better success
at the plate. Theres a long
way to go yet but Im happy
were 3-0.
St. Johns hosts LCC
tonight.
David gave us what we
needed on the mound. We
dont have the hard throwers
but he threw strikes and made
them pout it in play, firstyear Spencerville head coach
Shane Falke said. We must
make plays; weve struggled

(Continued from page 6)


Its almost inhuman how machinelike that program is; beating opponents
by 40-plus points per game over the
last two seasons; making mince-meat of
even highly-ranked foes with their own
talented groups; seemingly never having
a major injury or illness; and so forth.
And you think of how far a former
powerhouse like Tennessee a team

to say, and that seemed to calm us down


a little bit and the early game jitters
left us. (Derek) Youtsey pitched a great
game for the first handful of innings, but
I think he may have been on the basketball team and kind of wore out in that
fourth inning, said Ayersville coach
Chad Donsbach.
Lincolnview head coach Eric
Fishpaw knows his team is still getting
some of the arms in shape after a late
start to the season.
They played a lot better than we
did, Fishpaw said. Derek is still
rounding into pitching shape. We have
not come together as a team yet, there
is a few guys on the team that played a
long basketball season and that is affecting there play early. We will get better
and the team will look different later in
the season once the guys get reps.
While the Pilots broke through on
offense, Engel didnt allow the same to
happen for the Lancer bats.
I got a lot of help from my guys on
defense and when they are able to make
plays like they did it gives me more freedom to takes chances on the mound,

with that so far this season.


We struggled at the plate
against a very good pitcher;
we watched a lot of strikes
go by, especially early. Were
not where we need to be
overall but well get there
as we get innings and games
under our belt.

that has had more than its share of major


and crippling injuries over the years
has fallen, especially since the retirement of Pat Summitt.
What was once the best archrivalry in
womens college basketball has gone the
way of the do-do.
However, other coaches can (maybe?)
take heart in what Geno is quoted to
have said many times enjoy the ride
because it cant last forever!

Engel said. I got my curve going early


and when I am able to do that the rest
of my pitches are just that much more
effective. The reason my fastball looked
so strong and fast is because I was able
to get that slower curve mixed in really
well.

You would think that at some point,


the odds would make that true, they
would have a string of injuries and/or
highly-touted players wouldnt live up
to their billing, etc.
It happens to EVERY program, especially in this day and age of so-called
parity.
Just not now.
Now about those Reds

second straight Tuesday,


Earlham College used a
scintillating pitching performance from freshman Walter
Talcott to stymie the Bluffton
University baseball team 6-1
at Memorial Field.
Earlham
improved
to 16-5 and 6-3 in the
Heartland Collegiate Athletic
Conference.
Bluffton fell to 6-15 and
1-7 in the HCAC.
Talcott went the distance
in a 6-0 shutout a week ago.
With two outs in the top
of the second, Earlham took
advantage of a Bluffton error
and a blooper to short right to
go up 2-0. A Brennan Laird
leadoff homer and an RBI
single by Brandon Smalling
pushed the score to 4-0 in the
middle of the third.
Jason
Colliver
(Beavercreek) singled home
Jeff Arnett (Tecumseh, Mich./
Tecumseh) in the bottom of
the third to make it 4-1 but
the Quakers added a tally in

the sixth and another in the


ninth a hit batter with the
bases juiced for a 6-1 final.
Travis Clark (Lima/
Central Catholic) dropped
his first decision of the year
after allowing four runs, two
earned, on five hits in 3.2
innings. Taylor Gambrell
(Bowling
Green)
and
Brantley Curnutte (Hilliard/
Davidson) combined for
4.1 innings of 1-run ball.
Gambrell fanned two and
Curnutte set down three.
James Watkins (Lexington)
gave up one run on one hit in
the ninth inning.
Blake Fox (Berne. Ind./
South Adams) went 2-of-3
with a pair of singles.
Talcott scattered five hits.
He needed just 98 pitches,
tossing 69 strikes while fanning six. He did not issue a
free pass.
BU welcomes Mount St.
Joseph for their next HCAC
series. The lidlifter is slated
for 4:15 p.m. on Friday

Good Vibrations

"I'd Say..."

By Ed Clark

The music that moves us ...


Willie
NelsonAll
about the Country. The
iconic Willie Hugh Nelson
has been all about the country playing music for some
60 years.
An Arbys 5 for 5 you
may not know about the
man.
In high school (Abbott
High School, Texas) Nelson
played halfback in football,
guard in basketball, and
shortstop in baseball.
Nelson has acted in over
30 films. (Played opposite
Robert Redford in 1979
Electric Horseman)
A Willie Nelson statue is
on Willie Nelson Boulevard
in Austin, Texas.
In 1990 he released The
IRS Tapes: Wholl Buy My
Memories? album to raise
money for paying the IRS
in back taxes.
Along with Bob Dylan,
Roy Orbison, Neil Young,
BB King, Billy Joel and others, he helped set up Farm
Aid/1985 raising more than
$9 million in support of
small farmers.
Willie Nelson duets
with other music artists.

The list seems endless but


here is a sprinkling of
notable collaborations:
Beer for My Horses
with Toby Keith
Seven Spanish Angels
with Ray Charles
Baby Its Cold Outside

Willie Nelson
with Nora Jones
My Buckets Got a Hole
in It with Wynton Marsalis
Highwayman
with
Johnny
Cash,
Kris
Kristofferson & Waylin
Jennings
Country Chart Toppers
from Willie Nelson you
may have sung along to a
time or two:

Blue Eyes Crying in


the Rain 1975
Georgia On My Mind
1978
On The Road Again
1980
Angel Flying Too Close
to the Ground 1981
Always On My Mind
1982
Nelson long ago named
his acoustic guitar Trigger
(after Roy Rogers Horse)
and fellow greats have
signed it along the way.
The acoustic guitar name
is a 1969 Martin N-20 for
those who know.
A seemingly everyday
guy with likeable energy,
Willie Nelson has been
making folks happy with
his music for as long as a
baby boomer can remember. Country music legends
Johnny Cash and Hank
Williams are in the Rock
& Roll hall of fame. One
wonders if Mr. Nelson will
join them in rock n roll
country?
Good Vibrations.

PRAYER TO THE
BLESSED VIRGIN
Oh, most beautiful flower
of Mt. Carmel, fruitful
vine, splendor in heaven.
Blessed Mother of the
Son of God. Immaculate
Virgin assist me in my
necessity. O Star of the
Sea, help me and show
me herein you are my
mother. Oh Holy Mary,
Mother of God, Queen of
Heaven and Earth! I
humbly beseech you
from the bottom of my
heart to succor me in
this necessity. There are
none that can withstand
your power. Oh, show
me herein you are my
mother. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray
for us who have recourse to thee (three
times). Holy Spirit you
who solve all problems,
light of all roads so that I
can attain my goal. You
who gave me the divine
gift to forgive and forget
all evil against me and
that in all instances in
my life you are with me. I
want, in this short prayer, to thank you for all
things as you confirm
once again that I never
want to be separated
from you in eternal glory.
Thank you for your
mercy towards me and
mine. (The person must
say this prayer three
consecutive days. After
three days, the request
will be granted. This
prayer must be published after the favor is

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21


Taurus, this week it is better
to trust your heart instead
of your head. Sometimes
you have to let your emotions guide your actions, and
your gut could be telling you
something.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Gemini, you have good news
to share and you are eager to
reconnect with some friends
or coworkers. Just complete
prior commitments before
you begin making plans to
socialize.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, things in your life
seem to be growing more
challenging by the day.
Make a list and tackle things
as they come up so you dont
start to feel overwhelmed.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
A few possibilities intrigue
you, Leo, but you dont yet
know just where you are going to direct your creative
energy. Think it through a
little longer.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, you may feel like you
can ignore your responsibilities this week, but you
cannot. Although you have
plenty of free time coming
up, you have lots to do before then.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
Libra, someone close to you
isnt on board with your
point of view. You cant
please everyone all of the
time. Stay the course if you

When changing jobs, should you Anspach earns


insurance designation
leave 401(k) money behind?
BY NATHANIEL
SILLIN
With
the
average
American spending only 4.6
years at any given job, its
never been more important
to have a plan for any retirement funds youve accrued at
any employer.
A big problem that began
during the 2008 recession
but continues today involves
loans, hardship withdrawals
and complete cash-outs of
401(k) plans. A 2015 Boston
College study (http://crr.
bc.edu) reported that 1.5
percent of retirement assets
leak out of 401(k) plans
and personal IRAs each year,
reducing an individuals
wealth at retirement by about
25 percent.
Meanwhile,
a
2014
Fidelity Investments study
sounded a particularly urgent
alarm about 401(k) cashouts and workers under the
age of 40. The mutual fund
giant noted that 35 percent
of all participants were simply cashing out their 401(k)
assets when leaving a job.
However, for workers aged
20-39 indeed, those with
the longest savings horizons
that number jumped to 41
percent.
So what should you do?
A great deal depends on your
age, time to retirement and
specific needs.
Start by taking an invento-

Nathaniel Sillin
ry of your retirement assets.
Either alone or with the help
of a qualified financial or tax
expert, put together an official list of current and former
401(k) plans, personal IRAs
or, depending on your years
of work history, assets from
traditional defined benefit
retirement plans that were
popular more than 20 years
ago. Then see where you are.
Make sure you always
review retirement options
whenever you change a
job. If an employer is highly motivated to get you on
board, query the company
about the retirement savings
options that would fit the
position youre interviewing for. Ask hiring managers in general terms about
how well their retirement

options have performed and


if you would have the option
of rolling over your 401(k)
assets to that employer. If, for
example, your prospective
employer has a more generous matching feature than
your current employer has,
that could create a favorable
environment for transferring
those assets. If not, you may
want to keep your money
in your employers existing
plan or consider a rollover to
a personal IRA with the features youre looking for. Ask
plenty of questions.
Evaluate IRA choices
carefully. If you are considering rolling your former
employers assets into a personal IRA, evaluate your tax
situation, both Traditional
and Roth IRA options and
their performance and fee
levels before you arrange for
a transfer.
Go for the best-performing investment options that
fit your needs and anticipated
retirement date. Employerbased 401(k) plans generally
disclose investment choices
and investment fees (http://
www.dol.gov/ebsa/publications/401k_employee.html).
It may be a good idea to get
qualified help to review those
documents. Age is important.
Theres typically a 10 percent penalty if you withdraw
money from a 401(k) or IRA
before age 59 . But if you

lose or leave your job at age


55 or later (or earlier for certain public employees), you
can generally take 401(k)
withdrawals without penalty.
An IRA rollover requires the
account holder to be at least
59 years old before they
can take a penalty-free IRA
distribution. While keeping
your money invested as long
as possible is key to a successful retirement, withdrawal issues are also important to
consider based on your age
and time to retirement.
Invest on your own. Its
important to do parallel personal retirement planning
with any employer-based
retirement options available
to you. Again, get qualified
help to assist you in evaluating the retirement savings
and investment decisions you
make on your own and at
work.
Bottom line: Frequent
job changing can derail anyones retirement planning.
Whether you roll over a former employers retirement
assets every time you switch
or decide to keep your money
in certain plans, get help if
you need it.

Cut costs at the grocery store


Parents know the cost of
raising a family can be considerable. While some of the expenses associated with raising
a family, including healthcare
premiums, are largely beyond
parents control, moms and
dads can take steps to cut costs
and start saving money.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics 2014
Annual Expenditure Survey,
parents devoted about 8 percent of their family spending
to groceries in 2013. Families
with more than two children
no doubt spend even more
on groceries, which may be
stretching their budgets very
thin. Fortunately, parents concerned about their grocery
bills can employ various strategies to lower those bills and
start saving more.
Never shop without first
making a list. Modern grocery
stores are much bigger than
they might have been when
todays parents were growing up. While that might be
more convenient by ensuring
parents can find all their groceries under one roof, it also
can lead to more impulse buys
as shoppers stroll aisles and
pass display after display. After checking your pantry and
refrigerator to determine what
you have and what you might
need, make a list before heading out for the grocery store.
Such lists can help you avoid
purchasing items you dont
need.
Keep the kids at home.
Kids have a knack for finding
unhealthy snacks and beverages, and parents may cave
to the temptation to purchase
such items in an attempt to get
youngsters to calm down. By

Farmland does not come up for sale very often, she said.
There are other secondary factors in cropland prices. Crop
prices and soil quality are two of those factors. The crop
report came out Thursday and it shows that farmers planted an
additional three million acres in corn this year over last year.
Consequently, corn prices dropped 14 cents a bushel. Obviously,
earning less money per acre is one factor.
Then theres soil type. Some soils are better than others.
For example, the best soil is Pewano and then Blount. Quite
often, a combination of the two types are common. Brookston
and Milgrove are also good soil types for a farm, Spencer said.
Spencer considers the Morley series to be the less productive
soil than other types.

Wolfe went to outline the groups
volunteer efforts.
You see them at Canal Days and the
Postal and Canal Commission museums, they help mulch the park trails
and hold Food for America for our
younger students to teach them where
their food comes from. They do an outstanding job, he concluded.
The highlight of the evening are
the Honorary Degree, Star, Dekalb,
FFA Appreciation and 110% awards.
Winners are chosen by Advisor Scott
Elwer, who also presents the awards.
Cory Osting was this years winner of the Honorary Chapter Degree.
Members felt Osting deserved the
award for his dedication as a coach
for members in Ag Mechanics, Small
Engines, Farm Management and
Wildlife Management.
I enjoyed FFA in high school and
it was very beneficial to me and I want
to give that back by supporting the pro-

gram, Osting said.

Liebrecht marks the completion of the path at June 1.


The number of bridges that need attention has
dropped from three to two.
Coleman reported at the last
council meeting bridges over
Flat Fork Creek on East First,
East Third and East Seventh
streets had been deemed deficient by the Allen County
Engineers Office. ODOT has
since reinspected the bridges
and took the bridge on East
Seventh Street off the list.
The city will seek grants
80/20 grants and monies
from the Municipal Bridge
Program to help trim the
citys 20 percent for repairs.
The First Street bridge is in
the most need of repair.
Theres no immediate
danger to someone driving
over these bridges, Coleman
added. They just need to be
kept up.
In the sole communication
to council, veterinarian Dr.
Bonnie Jones requested the
use of Leisure Park for the
annual Relay for Life mini
relay Bark for Life on June
12. Jones requested the recreational area from 1-4:30 p.m.
that Saturday with the Bark
for Life held from 2-4 p.m.
Council unanimously agreed.

We have not received any


feedback on the proposal of
the new pool hours (noon
to 8 p.m. Monday through
Friday and noon to 6 p.m. on
Saturday and Sunday). Im
going to assume everyone is
in agreement with that, he
added.
Councilman
Tom
Grothous asked if the administration is going to reconsider the reduction in hours once
the Kiwanis Splash Pad in is
place. Coleman said the hours
could be revisited at any time.
Coleman also reported
Liebrecht Construction has
been awarded the bid for
upgrades to the walking path
around the Delphos-Gillmor
Reservoir. An $18,000
donation from the MuellerScherger Foundation sought
by The Delphos Stadium
Club will provide the matching funds for the $22,007
Natureworks Grant awarded
to the city earlier this year.
Coleman said the plan is to
re-grade the existing aggregate, add four inches of Ohio
Department of Transportation
aggregate and remove vegetation from the reservoir
walkway. The contract with

Our vision is to be the leading and most trusted provider


of tires and services in all of our geographic markets.

Dave Desenberg checks the level on the frame for the new
model train display being installed at the Canal Museum.

Canal
(Continued from page 1)
The passenger train would
be a Polar Express type.
Everything, he said, would
be lit up inside and out and
the landscape would duplicate the area between 1945
to 1955 as closely as possible. The engines are all steam
engines.
When completed, the
model itself will be under a
Plexiglas shield, but visitors
can start the action by simply
pushing a button.
Its the only non-static display in the museum,
Desenberg said.
Desenberg said they were
talking to Lionel about donating some model trains for the
display, while some would
be donated by community
members. Desenberg said he
would probably buy some of
the model trains as well.
He sent out a call to the
public as well asking that if

any one had any O gauge


model trains theyd like to
donate, the museum would be
happy to put them on display,
or if they work, add them to
the working model.
The Canal Commission
also held their monthly
meeting and reorganization meeting, too. Three of
the commissions members
were re-elected as trustees
for another three years; Jim
Marihugh, Elmer Hoffman
and Marilyn Wagner. They
also added a new trustee,
Mike Vanderhorst from St.
Marys. Vanderhorst is retired
from the state and had worked
with the canal for 18 years.
The commission has 21 trustees all together.
They set a goal of getting
LED lighting installed on the
second floor. The LED lighting is gentler on the memorabilia than the fluorescent
lights.

With $100 and the generosity of a nice man, K&M Tire


was founded in 1970 as a two-bay gas station in a small
northwest Ohio town. With the hope of making enough
money to support his family and pay off the debts from
a previously failed business venture, Ken Langhals
never dreamed that 45 years later his company
would be a super-regional wholesale tire distributor
with 20 warehouses and over 500 employees.

Leading the company from its humble beginnings to the


powerhouse it is today through hard work and dedication, Ken is
proud to have his daughter, Cheryl Gossard, driving the second generation
at K&M Tire. Currently, she serves as vice president and has been with the
company for 20 years. In addition to Cheryl, Ken has three other children, a son-in-law,
and five grandchildren working at K&M Tire in various positions.

Proud to call Delphos home, the wholesale tire distributor finished


an 87,000-square-foot addition this past December, to bring their
total local warehouse space to nearly 350,000 square feet.
Construction on the project began last April. In addition, K&M Tire
built a fitness center at its headquarters which opened this past
October.
Outside of Delphos, the company opened a new warehouse in the
Cleveland area and had two acquisitions during 2015 Kelle Oil
and Midwest Tire & Muffler. The new 37,000-square-foot distribution facility in northeast Ohio opened in May of 2015. It allows K&M
Tire to service additional customers in that portion of the state. The
Kelle Oil acquisition closed in July and consisted of the assets of
their wholesale tire division located in Braman, OK. The purchase
has allowed K&M Tire to expand and add to their customer base in
Kansas and Oklahoma.
The most recent acquisition was Midwest Tire & Muffler located in the Dakotas which closed in October. Midwest
Tire & Muffler operated three distribution centers in Sioux Falls and Rapid City, SD, as well as a location in
Bismarck, ND. K&M consolidated the Bismarck warehouse into its existing 50,000-square-foot distribution center
in the city. With the addition of the two South Dakota
locations, K&M Tire finished 2015 with 20 locations
servicing customers throughout the Great Lakes,
Midwest and South Central regions of the United States.
Besides physical growth, K&M grew its charity efforts last
year by organizing a philanthropic board last July. The
new board, K&M Cares, was created to organize the
companys fund raising activities and to help make a
difference in our communities.
With its customer first philosophy, K&M Tire is dedicated
to offering brand name products that tire dealers
depend on and consumers trust. Embracing the small
town values that have helped shape the growth and
success of the company, K&M strives to be the leading
and most trusted provider of tires and services in all of
our geographic markets.
