Part 3 of a 3 part series

Help is available for depression and thoughts of suicide Editor’s note: This is part three of the series. By Cortney Mumaugh Sentinel Correspondent PUTNAM COUNTY ­— What do you do if someone you know and love is showing signs of suicide or depression? Do you really know what signs of suicide and depression are? According to Dr. Ellen Anderson, who contracts with the Ohio Department of Mental Health, women are perceived as being at a higher risk for suicide than men because they attempt suicide four times more often than men. But, men complete suicide four times more often than women. A woman’s risk of suicide rises until midlife when it then decreases. A man’s risk is always higher than his female counterpart and continues to rise until the end of his life. Anderson continues to state that the biggest risk factor for suicide completion is having a depressive illness – at some point in a chronic illness, suicide seems like the only way out of pain and suffering. Depression is a real illness. This goes along with the stigma that makes matters worse. Many view depression as a character flaw, a weakness or an inability to cope with everyday life. Anderson concluded that, “Our cultural view of suicide is wrong – invalidated by our current understanding of brain chemistry and its interaction with stress, trauma and genetics on mood and behavior.” Too many stress hormones can damage nerve cells in our brains – hormones set off by our Autonomic Nervous System, ANS. Chronic stress can change the way our ANS functions so that high levels of hormones are activated with little stimulus according to Anderson. These changes can lead to depression. Without a chance for the body to return to a resting state, hormones accumulate and create damage to brain cells. Stress causes damages to neurons in the brain – causing them to shrink away from other connectors in the brain. As fewer connections are made, more symptoms of depression appear. Suicide prevention has recently been equated to CPR. If you were trained in CPR and saw someone struggling, you would assist them without hesitation. If we see someone struggling with thoughts of suicide, we often do nothing. Part of the Gatekeeper training includes lessons from Dr. Paul Classifieds.........................

Quinentt who designed QPR, Question, Persuade, Refer. Q is ask if the person is thinking of suicide. P is getting the person to talk and seek help. R is getting the person professional help. Symptoms that a person may be thinking about suicide include but are not limited to: -withdrawing from friends, family and or favorite activities -abrupt changes in personality and mood -increase in risk-taking or self-destructive behaviors (including use of drugs and alcohol) -feeling hopeless or depressed -loss of interest in pleasurable things -lack of motivation -talking or writing about death, dying, or suicide -feeling anxious or agitated -unable to sleep or sleeping all the time -changes in eating habits -making final arrangements (including writing a note or giving away possessions) The Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation website states, “You may feel that the problems of living have become so heavy and twisted that you can’t bear to think of tackling them anymore. Sharing this with another person whom you trust can help you sort through some of them and lighten your burden. Anyone who loves or respects you as a person will do this willingly and will not be hurt by this sharing.” While there are things you can do for someone thinking of suicide, there are also things you should not do. Do not: ~ make moral judgments ~ argue or lecture ~ say “you’ll get over this” ~ say “all you need is a good night’s sleep” ~ dare or use reverse psychology ~ leave the person alone If you would like to get involved with suicide prevention locally, there are several ways for you to help. You can become a Gatekeeper through trainings provided by Pathways Counseling Center. Adults can also volunteer to help with local organizations/ activities that support our children/youth, such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, 4-H, faith-based organizations or school organizations. Anderson closed her lessons with “depression is a treatable disorder. Suicide is a preventable death.”

County recovering from storm By Charlie Warnimont Sentinel Sports Editor PUTNAM COUNTY — Sounds of generators running and chain saws operating filled the air in Putnam County. That was after a severe thunderstorm ripped across the county around 4 p.m. on Friday, June 29, leaving massive destruction in its wake. Very few county residents were spared damage to their property as winds in excess of 80 MPH accompanied the storm as it traveled across the area. Despite damage to houses, trees, farm buildings and

many other structures or decorative pieces county residents are slowly starting to recover from the destruction. “Certainly this has hit every part of the county in some form or another,” Putnam County Sheriff James Beutler said. “It’s going to be a while before all the cleanup is done. We had a real good showing of people coming out to help other residents and that’s what this county is all about. There are a lot of families here and everyone is grateful for that. They can all pull resources from

each other and help each other out.” Among the major concerns when the storm hit was when the electricity would return to everyone in the county. After the storm hit Friday Putnam County EMA Director Steve Odenweller estimated that 99 percent of county residents were without power. As of noon Tuesday that number was slowly coming down as crews from American Electric Power and Paulding-Putnam are working long hours to repair broken poles and downed lines to get everyone back up and

running. “Although we have had some setbacks, we are making progress,” an AEP spokesman said. “I think at this point we should have 90 percent of Putnam County back under power by Saturday. There will be some smaller areas that could take a little longer due to the amount of damage to lines and poles.” As of noon Tuesday power had been restored to most of Ottawa and Glandorf as well as parts of Pandora, Leipsic, Co➤➤See STORM/ A3

Bockrath family grateful after building collapsed with them inside By Monica Gerdeman Staff Writer OTTAWA — The Bockrath’s from Ottawa are counting their blessings after their barn collapsed with them inside. Fred Bockrath said, “We were on our way home from Lima. We had just picked up my son’s car from being detailed when Pat (Fred’s wife) caught the radar on her cell phone. We could see it was getting dark in the west. We were about to Vaughnsville when we put the hammer down to get home because Nathan (their son) wanted to put his vehicle inside.” The family made it to their driveway on 11-J just in time.

“We pulled into the driveway to get our other son Nick’s car, thinking it was going to hail. They both pulled into the barn one after another. We got out of the car in the barn, and no-

We could not make it back home so we better just stay put,” said Fred Pat continued, “Nick laid on top of me and we all stayed there until the building was gone. We knew we had to get out because even the cinder blocks where flying though the air.

Kahle protects ‘life in the womb’ By Cortney Mumaugh Sentinel Correspondent OTTAWA — Jan Kahle, Respect Life Coordinator for the Diocese of Toledo, has spent the last several years working to ‘protect life in the womb.’ She has had a love of children for many years being a school teacher in Kalida for 21 years prior to her current position. She also worked as the religious education coordinator for St. Michael’s in Kalida for a little over five years. It was that role that lead her to her current position. “I was interested in a change. I always appreciate doing different things. It feels like this is a vital necessity to address,” she said. Kahle attends Deanery meetings as part of her job. She is also trying to make connections with all the parishes in the diocese to communicate and share ideas and information. She is spending a lot of

time trying to make these connections. “The Respect Life office has been in Putnam County for years. It started with the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision. They determined there should be extra energy focused on protecting life in the womb,” said Kahle. She started in this position in 2008. The job was originally based in Toledo but it was decided that there needed to be a bigger presence in the outlying areas and currently serves 19 counties. Another large aspect of her job is to connect with pregnancy centers and events like the annual 40 Days for Life, the new Fortnight for Freedom and Project Rachel. “It’s so frustrating that the focus seems to go to (birth control) and yet it’s that fact that we, as Catholics, are saying that birth control is inappropriate and aborting children is against Creationism and

Bringing the March for Life here in Ottawa and the Putnam County Right to Life jumping on it and the people who attend in great numbers. Even the support for the pregnancy centers for example the Columbus Grove Knights kicking off the fundraiser (which bought an ultrasound machine) really helped them,” said Kahle. Kahle also noted the dense population of Catholics in the county which she said changes the dynamic of the county. Instead of questioning causes and whether organizations need donations - in Putnam County - Kahle said people are much more willing to support without needing to over-think things. “I think we need Marches (for Life) in every county. If we do that, we are bringing it home to people who cannot get to (Washington) D.C. There are some folks we still don’t know they exist. It’s not publicized enough,” she said. She also sits on the Heartbeat of Lima board. Heartbeat needs donations of milk-based formula and diapers as well as toiletries such as shampoo and lotions. Project Rachel, an

organization for outreach for post-abortive people. They generally hear from women but an occasional father will call too. Kahle said they generally match people with a priest for Reconciliation. Sometimes they meet with councilors too. “What we’ve been findings, and studies have been showing, is that people who have gone through an abortion are at a much greater risk for drug abuse, depression, broken relationships and a lot more struggles. As they work through those struggles, they find out that the abortion - which they thought was a closed deal is actually the root of their problem. We are linking with the USCCB which will provide us with more advertisements and radio spots...It’s all on the phone. It’s all anonymous so they can use a fake name if they want to. Basically they call and from there, we decide what they might need,” said Kahle. More information about Project Rachel can be found at 419-260-5811 or visit hopeafterabortion. com.

Ottoville proceeds with housing addition OTTOVILLE — During its regular monthly meeting Monday, village council here approved a resolution to proceed with a new housing addition that expands the village. Mayor Ron Miller said the Bendele family added 15 1/2 acres and put in a subdivision for six new houses. Engineer Greg Bockrath reported to the group on lining up utilities and plots for two homes. Miller said there is a chance for four more. In addition to adding new homes, the village is also addressing some street issues. “We’re looking at a crack-filling outfit to fill cracks in our roads. Out on Progressive Drive, the road is breaking up and needs repaved, so we’re seeking bids,” Miller said. A camera showed cracks in a sewer line on Bentley St., so that was replaced but more problems were created that also needed fixed. “When that line was replaced, when the guys were working on it, there was a water main break that was replaced. There was another one on Augaize St., which is where we’re looking at a repaving project, so we’re looking for money. We’re looking for grants and loans to get that done. We want to redo the street, storm sewer, water line and curbs. We’d take out the street and put in whole new sewer line, whole new water line, whole new curbs and put the paving back in,” Miller concluded.

Storm ➤➤From A1 lumbus and Kalida. As they are able to energize more parts of the county that aids them in being able to push further ahead. Due to the amount of damage to power lines crews from outside of the area have been joining local AEP forces to aid in the recovery effort. Residents are reminded even though power has been restored to an area there still could be problems with downed lines AEP does not know about. If you encounter such a problem you are encouraged to call AEP at their 800 number and report such instances. The National Weather Service dubbed the storm “an inland hurricane” due to the strength of its winds. The Office of Public Safety in Putnam County had a top wind speed of 86 MPH during the storm. Due to amount of damage from the storm, along with the power outages, Putnam County and the State of Ohio were declared a disaster area by Governor John Kaisch on Sunday. The declaration will help aid in the recovery effort. “After the storm hit, our main concern was making contact with everyone. That was the big thing,” Odenweller said. “We knew we were going to be without power, we didn’t realize it was going to be this long. We wanted to make sure we could account for everyone and see if anyone was hurt. After that we were looking for people with potential medical issues, fires things like that, since the alarms are not going to be there. From our end, it was it was going to be safety service, to make sure the population is protected.” There were six reports of residents being injured by the storm including a Dupont woman whose house trailer flipped over and her pinned inside the wreckage. She was taken to Defiance Mercy Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The Sheriff’s Office filed four or five reports of trees falling on cars and the drivers having to be rescued from them. One of them was at Road 8 and M. The gentleman was rescued from his car and taken to St. Rita’s Medical Center. The other was the corner of Fourth St. and Locust St. by Love Funeral Home. According to Sheriff Beutler, the woman was helped

out of her car by commissioner John Love and was treated for a broken wrist. There was another report of a man being trapped in his car in Columbus Grove after bricks fell on his car from damage in the downtown area. There was a report of a semi tractor-trailer blown over on St. Rt. 65 during the storm. The incident happened where the poles came down

an Marita Deatrick said they have had many residents take advantage of this service. The meals will continue until the emergency is over. One of main concerns yet is motorists not obeying road closed signs. As of Tuesday afternoon, several roads in the county remained closed because of downed wires or poles. ODOT and county officials ask motorists to obey the signs and use an alternate route. Power can accidently be turned on to lines that are down and have not yet been repaired. Treat all downed lines as if they are live. Although neighbors have been helping neighbors cleanup from the disaster not all the news is good. Sheriff Beutler has reported three break-ins at area business since the power went out. One of the breakins happened at Pike Run Golf Course where thieves made off with chain saws and weed eaters. The other break-ins were at Honda of Ottawa and Miller’s Pharmacy.

Among the first things rescue workers were able to do, was secure a generator for the Red Cross. Once the Red Cross had a generator they were able to open a cooling center at the Trinity United Methodist Church on East Main St. in Ottawa. The center is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. until the emergency is over. Although Ottawa was back under power Monday evening the center will remain open through Saturday for anyone to use as a heat advisory is in effect until Saturday evening. Since the storm blew through late Friday afternoon, Odenweller has been holding daily meetings with elected officials, town mayors, county office heads and ODOT to get updates on cleanup and the restoration of power to these communities. Besides opening the cooling center, the Red Cross has set up three areas around the county for residents to get a meal. Locations for meals were at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Ottawa, the west end fire station in Columbus Grove and the old gym in Fort Jennings. Meals were being served at these locations twice a day. Red Cross spokeswom-

Jennings council talks bicentennial at meeting By Nancy Spencer DHI Correspondent FORT JENNINGS — Numerous beautification projects were approved at Tuesday’s Fort Jennings Village Council meeting in preparation for the village’s bicentennial celebration in August. Fort Jennings Park Board President Jerry Siefker saw approval for several park projects including $800 to paint and trim the rec club building; $300 to re-stone the area behind the building to enhance handicap accessibility and come in line with Americans With Disabilities Act requirements; and $7,000 to paint and seal the tennis courts. Labor for painting and refurbishing of the area behind the club will be done by park board members and Leslie Coatings received the bid for the tennis courts. They will clean, caulk and apply three coats of paint to the courts. Our Tree Service of Delphos was tapped to remove six trees in the park and grind nine tree stumps for $1,900. Siefker said there were four to five additional stumps that needed taken care of since park board members removed arborvitaes trees earlier in the week. Mayor Jim Smith directed village maintenance supervisor Ted Wrasman to inquire if Our Tree Service would also take care of those for a nominal fee. Greve Tree Service bid $2,250 for the job and Niese Tree Service bid $2,355. Siefker told council Boy Scout Dylan Van Loo received approval for his Eagle Scout project to refurbish the walk bridge over the Auglaize River behind the fire department on Water St. The village had secured the supplies for the bridge last year. Van Loo is providing the labor. Smith told Siefker the bridge needed to be completed by Aug. 1.

Siefker also noted park board members had repaired a bench by the playground, installed two new slides and the Diamond 1 outfield fence project is underway. The park will host several activities during the bicentennial, including an 1812 reenactment group, an oldtime baseball game and the annual lawnmower races.

Letters to the Editor

Mother Nature tests Putnam County To the editor: I am certain our county (as well as our state) will long remember this week. Once again, Mother Nature has tested our patients, our purse strings and our resolve. As I write this, the air holds an eerie silence, save for the hum of generators and the buzz of chain saws. For the members of the Ottawa-Glandorf community, this past weekend will be remembered for yet another reason, as it marked the passing of Leon Boedicker, the champion of all things Titan. Leon bled blue and gold. He was a staple at every sporting event he could make it to. As often as I could, I tried to acknowledge his presence at academic banquets. His quiet dedication and support did not go unnoticed. Leon Boedicker died a bachelor, but in truth he had thousands of children. Every young man and woman who ever passed through our hallways was his for awhile too. I write this through tears, as just as Leon was a friend to all our students, he was a friend to me. Thank you Mr. Boedicker. What a great legacy you have left behind. Mrs. Ginny Leis, Ottawa

Dedication of fourth Habitat for Humanity home set for July 9 CONTINENTAL — The public is invited to the dedication of the fourth Habitat for Humanity home in Putnam County on Monday, July 9. There will be an open house with light refreshments at 5 p.m. and a dedication ceremony at 7 p.m. The home was built in partnership with the Pedro Soto and Amey Brown family and is located at 201 Sugar St. in Continental, next to the Continental Public Library. The Soto home was made possible in part by a partnership with Putnam County Habitat for Humanity and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. The home was built to Energy Star 3.0 specifications and Enterprise Green Communities

standards, making the home both energy efficient and a healthy place to live. Enterprise Green Communities requires that homes be built with formaldehyde free and low VOC materials. In addition, this is the first Habitat home in Ohio certified as an IBHS Fortified Home. That will withstand winds up to 130 mph. Habitat is not a giveaway program. In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest 350 hours of their own labor (sweat equity) into building their Habitat home and the houses of others. Habitat houses are sold to partner families as no profit and financed with affordable loans. The homeowners’

monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses. Putnam County Habitat plans to start construction of it’s fifth home in mid-July in Kalida for the Renee Schroeder family. Habitat’s ministry is based on the conviction that to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, we must love and care for one another. Our love must not be words only— it must be true love, which shows itself in action. Habitat provides an opportunity for people to put their faith and love into action. We bring diverse groups of people together to make affordable housing and better communities a reality for everyone.

Wildlife biologists verify more than 100 bobcat sightings in Ohio in 2011

Leipsic building still stands The only building the village hoped would fall in the storm still stands on Main St. in Leipsic.

ATHENS — For the second year in a row, more than 100 bobcats have been shown to be living in Ohio’s southeastern counties with the confirmation of 136 sightings by state wildlife officials during 2011, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Division of Wildlife. The reports show an increase from the 106 verified sightings in 2010. The bobcat is listed as an endangered species in Ohio and is protected by state law. Bobcats once roamed across Ohio during early settlement, but as more people settled within the state, their numbers diminished. By the year 1850, bobcats no longer lived in Ohio. However, a handful of unverified sightings of the bobcat in the 1960s an-

nounced the introduction of the return of the Ohio bobcat. Since 1970, there have been 691 bobcat sightings in 38 counties verified by state wildlife biologists. The majority of wildcatverified reports for 2011 occurred in Noble County and surrounding counties. The bobcat may be verified with photographs of the animal itself and its tracks; road kill recovery and sightings by Division of Wildlife personnel as well as encounters through incidental trappings, which are followed by the animals being released. Since bobcats are typically elusive and it is rare for people to see them in the wild, the Division of Wildlife is using technology to clarify estimated populations of bobcats. To help

them with their research, biologists use remote cameras and scent stations. Wildlife officials also use GPS radio collars to track the location of bobcats after catching and releasing them. The efforts to learn more about the locations of bobcats have been supported by the Wildlife Diversity and Endangered Species Fund. Ohioans give donations to this fund through the state income tax check-off program and by purchasing cardinal license plates.

Avoid storing fireworks. If you must keep them, store them in a cool, dry place, safely out of reach from children. Never throw unused fireworks in the trash.

Never bring your own fireworks to a public fireworks display. A crowded area is never a safe place to light fireworks.

Do not bring pets to a fireworks display. The loud noise will most likely frighten your pet and hurt his ears.

Celebrate Safely by using only exempt trick or novelty fireworks. Supervise children and avoid combustibles and loose clothing.

When lighting fireworks, use a smooth, flat, outdoor surface. It should be a safe distance away from homes and things that could catch fire, such as dry leaves.

If you see an unexploded firework on the ground after a public display, avoid touching it and call the local fire department immediately.

Never attempt to relight a firework that did not fully function. Instead, contact your fire department for information about proper disposal of “live” fireworks.

Big innings power O-G over Leipsic By Charlie Warnimont Sentinel Sports Editor HAMLER — OttawaGlandorf’s offense came to life in the middle innings Monday evening. The Titans erupted 10 runs over three innings that helped O-G to a 11-4 win over Leipsic in the opening game of the ACME sectional tournament at Patrick Henry High School. The win sends the Titans to the winners bracket championship Thursday evening at 6 p.m. against either Columbus Grove or Patrick Henry (which was played Tuesday evening). Leipsic drops into the losers bracket and will play the Grove-Patrick Henry loser Friday at 6 p.m. With the game tied 1-1 going to the third inning, O-G was able to come up with four runs that gave them the lead for good. Cory Imm opened the Titan third as he reached on an error. Imm later went to third on an errant pickoff throw at first base. Imm scored as Jake Hashbarger lined a double down the left field line. Tyler Zender followed with a single to center and he stole second base before Drew Schierloh followed with an RBI single. He stole second and when the throw from Leipsic’s catcher bounced into center field it allowed Zender to race home with a win. Ben Dietering followed with a single and stole second before a wild pitch allowed Schierloh to come home with the fourth run of the inning and advance Dieter-

ing to third base. A strikeout and flyball to right field left Dietering stranded at third base. “That third inning we got back to our leadoff batter Cory Imm, who had a fantastic game getting on base and running the bases, then Jake Hashbarger had a great game hitting the ball solid that moved runners and drove in runs,” O-G coach Keith Schierloh said. “We did the right things when we got on base, hitting to the right side to get runners to third base. We only had the one inning when we really opened up, but we were able to score runs in different innings. It was a nice game for us, the guys played well.” After falling behind Leipsic responded with three runs in their half of the fourth inning. Neil Haselman led off the inning with an infield single before Austin Brown hit a groundball to shortstop. O-G attempted to turn a doubleplay, but the throw to second base was wide which allowed Haselman and Brown to get an extra base. Pierce Henry followed with an RBI single to short left-center. On the play, O-G attempted to get Brown at third base, but the throw was wide and sailed into the Titan dugout allowing Brown to score and Henry move all the way to third base. A single by Dylan Schey made it 5-4. The Titans avoided further damage as a flyball to right and another flyball to right, that resulted in a double play, ended the inning.

Ottawa-Glandorf’s Jake Hashbarger (32) connects for one of his three base hits in the Titans ACME sectional game with Leipsic Monday evening. Hashbarger helped the Titans to an 11-4 win as he had seven RBI in the contest.

Having seen the Vikings come within 5-4, O-G extended its lead in the bottom of the fourth with two runs. Brad Croy and Imm opened the inning with singles before Cody Bockrath reached on a fielders choice play that had runners at first and third. After Bockrath stole second base a single by Hashbarger plated the two runs ending the Devin Mangas’ day on the mound. Schey came on to pitch and got the final two outs of the inning. Ottawa-Glandorf broke the game open in the fifth as they scored four more runs. With one out in the O-G fifth, singles by Jaylen Von Sossan, Tyler Ellerbrock

and Croy had the bases loaded. Imm bounced into a fielders choice play as Von Sossan scored, then after Bockrath walked to reload the bases, Hashbarger lined a double up the gap in leftcenter that cleared the bases. “We had a couple of errors that helped them to the big innings,” Leipsic coach Nate Schroeder said. “The second time through each pitcher we used they seemed to hit the ball harder, which kind of killed us. They were able to take advantage of our errors with some timely hits.” After scoring three times in the fourth inning, the Vikings had just three base runners the rest of the game.

They had runners at first and second in the fifth inning with two outs before a popup to first base ended the inning. Leipsic had a one out base runner in the seventh before the next two batters were retired. Von Sossan went the distance to record the win as he allowed four runs on four hits with seven strikeouts. “Jaylen threw a fantastic game,” Schierloh said. “Every time I talked to him, to see if he was getting tired, he just kept wanting to go back out there. That’s the kind of attitude you want from guys and he really did a great job. He had that one bad inning, but we had two errors in that inning and at

that point I just had to go out and settle everyone down.” “When we cut it down to one run, we had a chance for more runs, but we just never came through with the timely hit,” Schroeder said. “That’s the way it goes sometimes. I can’t complain. The kids put the ball in play, but sometimes it falls in there and sometimes it doesn’t.” Hashbarger finished with three hits and seven RBI for the Titans. Schierloh had two hits and an RBI. Von Sossan and Croy both had two hits in the win. Mangas took the loss for Leipsic. Four different players had hits for the Vikings, ➤➤See BIG/B2

In his two-year career as a right handed pitcher with the Express baseball team, Basinger was 5-6 with a 5.83 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 63.1 innings. On April 1 of this past season, he threw a complete game one hitter against Lakeland Community College with nine strikeouts. He came within one out of the no hitter. It was on the basketball court where he really made his mark, however. In his one year with the Express, he made 56.4 percent of his shots while averaging 7.1 points and 5.9 rebounds to go along with 26 assists, five blocks and 30 steals in 18 games played. After joining the team following the start of the sea-

son, he eventually worked his way into the starting lineup. He started the team’s final 10 games and averaged 8.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, two assists and 1.3 steals per game. He led the team in field goal percentage, was second in rebounds per game and fourth in points per game. With his help, the Express improved from a 10-21 finish in 2010-11 to a 24-8 finish in 2011-12. The team advanced all the way to the Region XII District 10 championship game. “Jordan is a kid that joined us late in to the season, but made an immediate impact with his effort and his high basketball IQ,” said Express men’s basketball head coach Dave Clarke. “His character and his basketball ability are main reasons why successful teams can win championships.” Basinger joined the Express following a standout three-sport career at Kalida

High School. A 1,000 point scorer in basketball, he was First Team All-PCL his final three seasons, PCL Player of the Year his senior year, First Team All-District 8, All-Region, and All-Ohio his final two years, and he was a member of the state runner-up team his junior year. In baseball, he was First Team All-Putnam County League his sophomore and senior seasons. In soccer, he was First Team All-PCL his junior and senior years. Siena Heights is a member of the NAIA. Their baseball team finished 33-25 overall last season and 13-14 in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC). Their season ended with a loss in the NAIA Tournament. The men’s basketball team finished 7-24 overall and 4-14 in the WHAC. Their season ended with a loss in the WHAC Tournament quarterfinals.

DELPHOS — Columbus Grove had one player receive first team honors and one second team honors in voting by the Northwest Conference coaches this season. Katelyn Scott received first team honors for the Bulldogs, while Cece Utendorf was named to the second team. Scott, a junior shortstop, received first team honors after a big season at the plate as she hammered eight home runs and had a slug-

ging percentage of .712 percent. Overall, Scott was 22 for 66 at the plate for a .333 average, which included a double. She was second on the team in RBI with 25 and scored 23 runs. Utendorf, a senior second baseman, had a .383 average for the Bulldogs as she went 36 for 94 at the plate with two doubles. She was second on the team with 28 runs scored and drove in just eight runs, while stealing 11 bases. The Bulldogs’ Bobbi

Heckel was named to the Honorable Mention list. Ada’s Lindsay Simmons was named the NWC Player of the Year as she received 174 points in voting done by the conference coaches.

Sports Jefferson tops Ft. Jennings Bulldogs

B2

Wednesday, July 4, 2012

By Jim Metcalfe DHI Correspondent FORT JENNINGS — Jefferson’s ACME summer baseball team put it all together at the plate versus Fort Jennings Wednesday night: 13 hits, nine baseson-balls, eight stolen bases and two hit batters; plus getting the benefit of five Musketeer errors and two balks. In the end, it ended up being a 17-5 rout on a warm evening at Fort Jennings Village Park. For the third game in a row, the Wildcats (8-6) got off quickly, scoring five times in the first inning. Tyler Wrasman (4 runs scored, 2-for-4, 2 runs batted in) was hit by a pitch from Musketeer starter Dylan Van Loo (2 2/3 innings pitched, 8 hits, 10 runs, 6 earned, 3 walks, 1 hit batter, 1 balk) to lead it off, stole second and took third on an error on the play. Zach Ricker (3for-4, 3 runs, 2 RBI) singled him in. He took second on an error on a pickoff play. A single to left by Austin Jettinghoff (3-for-5, 2 runs) singled him to third and stole second himself. Zach Kimmett bounced out to third to plate Ricker for a 2-0 lead, with Jettinghoff taking third. An out hence, Seth Wollenhaupt walked and also swiped second. An error on Zavier Buzard’s grounder scored Jettinghoff and advanced Wollenhaupt. An error on a pickoff play allowed Wollenhaupt to score and put Buzard at third, from where he scored on Nick Fitch’s blooper to short left for a 5-0 spread. That largesse staked Jefferson southpaw Gaige

Rassman (3 IPs, 4 hits, 2 earned runs, 1 wild pitch). Ricker got aboard on a 1-out ground single to left in the second and stole second but remained there. The Musketeers got within 5-2 in the home half. Josh Wittler singled to right; two outs later, Caleb Bankey also singled to right. Spencer Dray doubled to left to score both. Delphos made it 10-2 in the third. Drew Kortokrax walked to lead it off, stole second and took third on a grounder by Wollenhaupt. Buzard walked and burgled second. Fitch launched a sacrifice fly to left to score Kortokrax. Rassman shot a sinking liner into center to score Buzard and himself swiped second, scoring as Wrasman ripped a double down the left-field line. In turn, Ricker blooped a single down the left-field line to score Wrasman. Jettinghoff nailed a groundrule double to left center to finish Van Loo and bring in Brent Clay (3.2 IPs, 5 hits, 7 runs, 6 earned, 4 BBs, 2 Ks). A wild pitch brought Ricker in for a 10-2 edge. Van Loo commenced the Musketeer half with a double to left center that Buzzard dove for and took third on a wild pitch. However, Rassman got out of the frame unscathed. In the Wildcat fourth, Buzzard beat out an infield hit with two down and stole second. Fitch walked. Both advanced on a balk and scored on a throwing error for an 11-2 edge. Connor Wollenhorst was hit by Jefferson reliever Ricker (2 IPs, 1 unearned

He plunked Wittler to lead it off and also hit Wollenhorst an out later. Bankey’s comebacker advanced both but they could get no farther. The Wildcats (8-6) tallied five more in the seventh. Dylan Haehn beat out an infield hit to short, got to third on a wild pitch and passed ball and scored on a single to left Wrasman. He advanced on a wild pitch. Ricker walked.

An out later, Buzzard walked to force home Jettinghoff for a 16-3 edge. Fitch forced Buzard at second to get Kimmett home and that 17-3 bulge. Jared Hoersten led off the host seventh by drawing a walk off Kimmett, the fourth Delphos pitcher. Van Loo walked and both advanced on a wild pitch. An out hence, Metzger bounced out to score Hoersten. After Van Loo stole third, he touched the dish on a wild pitch to finish the night’s scoring.

Local baseball/softball fields damaged Several baseball and softball fields that Putnam County teams play on could not escape the wrath of Mother Nature Friday during the severe weather that crossed the area. Damage to the fields included backstops, outfield fences and dugouts. Damage to a couple of local fields forced the ACME sectional tournament to be held at different diamonds. The diamond is pictured is Kalida’s Holy Name Ballfield.

Around Campus

Students visit Washington, D.C. and area sites PUTNAM COUNTY — Savannah Roughton of Paulding, and Matthew Meyerhoffer, of Ottawa were among 35 high school winners from throughout Ohio and West Virginia who visited Washington, D.C. and other points of interest June 15 to 21 as part of Ohio Rural Electric Cooperatives, Inc.’s Youth Tour to the nation’s capital. The week-long trip included a visit to the U.S. Capitol and other areas of historical significance. The students were awarded the tour in a scholastic competition sponsored by Paulding-Put-

nam Electric Cooperative, Inc. of Paulding, a Touchstone Energy® cooperative. The sophomores and juniors joined 1,500 other rural youths representing 42 states. As part of their tour of the nation’s capital, students met with members of their Congressional delegation, visited Arlington National Cemetery and attended a performance at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Savannah is the daughter of Shelly and Eric Roughton and Matthew is the son of Jim and Julie Meyerhoffer.

Fire Marshal encourages extra steps for a safe July 4th PUTNAM COUNTY — State Fire Marshal Larry Flowers has issued a Warning of Extreme Fire Danger and is urging Ohioans to take extra safety precautions this Independence Day holiday. “Any spark is a danger right now,” says Marshal Flowers. “These hot, dry conditions and the forecasted 25 mile per hour wind gusts is a recipe for danger. A spark, on dry grass, fanned by winds, can quickly get out of hand and put lives and property at risk.” To ensure safety at your backyard cookout or gathering at a park or farm field, the Marshal provides the following advice: • Do not burn for any reason except cooking/grilling or recreational fires. • Keep recreational fires contained in a designated fire pit, outdoor fireplace or confined to seasoned hardwood

in an area three feet or less in diameter and two feet or less in height. • Be careful when using lighter fluid. Do not add fluid to an already lit fire - the flame can flashback into the container and explode. • Supervise children around outdoor grills. Announcing a three-foot ‘safety zone’ around the grill is an effective way to keep both children and pets at a distance. • Dispose of hot coals properly - douse all of them, not just the red ones, with plenty of water and stir them to ensure that the fire is out. Never place them in plastic, paper or wooden containers. • Leave the matches to the adults and the fireworks to the professionals. That means teaching children to take any matches to adults. Do not light fireworks. Visit a local professional fireworks exhibition.

Victims of damaging winds eligible for reduced interest rates COLUMBUS — Residents across Ohio impacted by damaging winds and severe weather during storms the weekend of June 30 could be eligible for emergency assistance in the form of reduced interest rates on loans under Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel’s Renew Ohio and Rebuild Ohio Programs. Small businesses and homeowners who apply for bank loans for construction, restoration, or cash flow for damage and hardship resulting from the recent severe weather may be eligible to receive interest rate reductions through the Treasurer’s office. “Extremely high winds and severe weather across Ohio caught many by surprise and resulted in serious damages to many homes and small businesses. Those looking to rebuild and recover from loss may be eligible for various state and federal programs, including the Renew Ohio and Rebuild Ohio linked deposit programs which can help lower interest rates on loans,” said Mandel. “These programs can be used by businesses or farmers who are victims of severe weather for construction and to improve cash flow, or by individuals to finance the restoration of their homes.” Mandel has made $25 million available through the Ohio Treasury’s Renew Ohio and Rebuild Ohio emergency financing programs to assist Ohioans whose small businesses, farms and homes were damaged by severe weather. The money in this linked deposit program is available and targets small

business owners, farmers and homeowners affected by severe weather who might be eligible to receive interest rate reductions on loans in order to rebuild and recover from damage or loss. Renew Ohio will assist small business owners and those in the agricultural community who have suffered severe damage or loss as a result of severe weather. Businesses and farmers can apply to obtain up to a three percent interest rate reduction on new or existing loans for construction or to improve cash flow. The interest rate reduction may be applied on up to $400,000 of the loan for up to four years. Rebuild Ohio will assist homeowners with an interest rate reduction on loans to finance the restoration of their homes. Homeowners who have suffered severe damage or loss as a result of severe weather will be eligible for a three percent interest rate reduction on up to $400,000 of the loan for a five or sevenyear period. The Renew Ohio and Rebuild Ohio programs are able to be used in addition to other state and federal disaster assistance programs that might be available to victims. For more information on how to apply for the Renew Ohio or Rebuild Ohio programs please contact the Ohio Treasury’s Department of Economic Development by calling 614-466-6546 or toll-free 800-228-1102 option 3; or visit the Renew Ohio and Rebuild Ohio web page: www.OhioTreasurer.gov/RenewRebuild.

It’s a waiting game “We are not sure if the crops are going to make it. Some of them are broken off and some aren’t. We really aren’t going to know for quite some time. It is a judgement call and we are playing the waiting game,” said the Neidert brothers who farm near Fort Jennings.
