The Wesleyan Church was open to the public during the recent power outage.
The church would like to thank the media for getting word out; a local restaurant for its donation; individuals for food donations; and those who gave monetary donations.
A big thanks goes out to all who volunteered their time serving and keeping the church open around the clock.
We also appreciate all who passed out flyers to let the community know the church was open and offering food, air conditioning, a place to rest and the opportunity to watch movies.
Anyone who still doesn’t have power can contact the church to see if any need can be met.
The leftover food and monetary donations were given to a rescue shelter in Lima.

Every month, my husband and I pay close to $400 for our medical insurance which doesn’t cover any medical expenses unless we get over $10,000 for the year. It seems like a lot for nothing but it is nothing compared to what most small businesses pay.
This being the case, National Health Care would seems like a blessing. That could only be true if National Heath Care was about care but it’s about controlling our care. It’s about controlling what the doctors can and can not do. It’s about controlling what operations or surgeries the hospitals can and can not perform. It’s about our government having more control over us then they already do.
It would be nice not to pay insurance every month. We could save the money for our kids or grandkids, travel or even retire with a bit more comfort but I’d rather be free — free to control my own health care.
Just a concerned U.S. citizen,
Annette Brown

With the sudden death of Ms. Dorothy Tate, the community has lost a lady that touched the lives of many young people in the city of Delphos over the past 40-plus years. She was a professional educator in very way. She was an even better person and she cared deeply about her students.
In July of 2002, we needed to hire a Spanish teacher and I had no idea of where I should look. I decided to call Bruce Sommers, who was the superintendent of Delphos City Schools. He told me about Ms. Tate and that she had retired after 30 years with the Delphos City Schools. He told me what an excellent teacher she had been. He said she was presently selling calendars in the Lima Mall and might in interested in teaching again. I will be forever grateful to Mr. Sommers.
I called Ms. Tate and she was more than willing to talk to me. Over the next 10 years, she didn’t work for me, she worked with me. She was that special teacher that worked hard in the classroom and was respected and loved by her students and colleagues alike. She always kept me informed of everything going on in her classroom and was not afraid to voice her opinion or tell me when she disagreed with something I did or said.
It was about this time last year she told me this would be her final year of teaching. I tried to talk her out of retiring and kept asking her, “if she had changed her mind.” She told me, “after 40 years, it was time to retire.” I know she looked forward to a new chapter in her life.
She will be missed by her many special friends and everyone she came into contact with over the years. I know I will never forget her. Rest in peace, Ms. Tate, and thank you for all you’ve done.
Don Huysman, principal
