DELPHOS — Samuel Hopkins-Hubbard is colorblind and has no party affiliation. He’s just a man on a horse carrying an American flag from Milton-Freewater, Oregon, to Washington, D.C. True to the old saying, Sam says the journey is more important than the destination.

“This is my patriot ride to reach out to citizens from this country to remind them who we are,” Sam said. “This country has never belonged to the politicians. It’s always belonged to the people. The politicians keep us busy fighting with each other so they can do what they want.”

Sam’s “One Nation Ride” was spurred by his own situation. The owner of a market, city councilman and captain of his local fire crew, the father of three looked around and saw so much discouragement and hopelessness, he decided to do something about it.

DELPHOS — When at first you don’t succeed, try again. That’s what teacher and Special Educational Office Missy McClurg did and the second time was the charm. McClurg brought home a $511,000 Ohio Straight A Fund grant for Delphos City Schools on June 26.

“My application was turned down the first time and when Gov. John Kasich announced a second round of grants, I looked at what other schools had submitted and changed my focus,” McClurg said after Monday’s school board meeting.

McClurg’s second effort was named “Let’s BRAG (Bring Robust Achievement Gains) about our schools!”

The Straight A Fund is awarded to schools with ideas to solve problems, new ways to serve students and creative solutions that save money while improving service, according to the Ohio Department of Education website.

Through the grant, the district will receive 620 touchscreen Chromebooks for all pupils in grades 6-12, 12 Google Nexus tablets with optional keyboards and styluses and more broadband to handle the increased usage now and in the future.

CHICAGO — Unexplained rash? Check your iPad. It turns out the popular tablet computer may contain nickel, one of the most common allergy-inducing metals.

Recent reports in medical journals detail nickel allergies from a variety of personal electronic devices, including laptops and cellphones. But it was an Apple iPad that caused an itchy body rash in an 11-year-old boy recently treated at a San Diego hospital, according to a report in Monday's Pediatrics.

LOS ANGELES  — For the fans of Archie Andrews, his impending death marks a fitting end for the famous comic book do-gooder.

The 73-year-old red-headed character will die in Wednesday's installment of "Life with Archie" when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on senator Kevin Keller, Archie Comics' first openly gay character who is pushing for more gun control in Riverdale. Archie's death — but not the circumstances — was first announced in April and will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Archie and his pals.
