She said its roots start at a young age, when young children are 3-5 years-old and are bullying one another to get their way.“Domestic violence is an exten-sion of bullying and the aggression escalates through life,” Dickman said. “As teenagers, both girls and boys are perpetrators and it be-comes more of a way of life for males who become primary perpe-trators.”She said one in four kids have experienced emotional or physical abuse in a dating relationship.“Kids see it everywhere and there are more ways in which they are bullied,”she said. “Not only is it in the home, at school and on tele-vision and in video games, technol-ogy has added a new dimension in the form of cyber stalking.”She said kids often don’t have healthy relationships or positive role models to look up to.“Since 1990 in Allen County, there have been 26 people mur-dered due to domestic violence,” Dickman detailed. “Six of those were children, one was a man mur-dered by his brother and the re-maining victims were women.”It’s a learned behavior and chil-dren take on the role as a victim, abuser or both.“If a child grows up seeing his/ her mother being beat and learns that hiding for five minutes in-conspicuously, it will go away, the child might live their whole life thinking hiding will fix all their problems,” Dickman said. “There are some very dangerous routines people have adopted.”On Sept. 17, 2013, the National Network to End Domestic Violence conducted an annual one-day cen-sus of adults and children seeking domestic violence service within a 24-hour period in the United States.In Ohio, on that day alone, 1,040 domestic violence victims — 577 children and 463 adults — found refuge in emergency shelters or transitional housing provided by local domestic violence programs and 977 adults and children re-ceived non-residential assistance and services, including counseling, legal advocacy and children’s sup-port groups. High school students learn the  value of the dollar  BY STEPHANIE GROVES DHI Media Staff OTTOVILLE — Ottoville and Fort Jen-nings eighth- and ninth-grade students partici-pated in Real World, Real Money, a simulated scenario that puts each student through the rig-ors of real-world financial responsibility.Ohio State University Putnam County Extension Representative Jason Hedrick ex-plained the task and goal of the simulaation.“Each student takes on the role of a recent college graduate, is given a check registry and salary with a budget broken down,” he said. “They travel to each booth where they speak with a professional and buy a house, insur-ance, vehicle, clothing, food, and factor in child day care and credit card and school loan payments, all the while, trying to stay within their budget.”Fort Jennings students Makenna Ricker and Marissa Krietemeyer said they both en- joyed the simulation and were both surprised as to how much it costs per month to purchase food and clothing for a family.“In my profile, I had one seven-year-old child and my biggest surprise was the cost of food,” Krietemeyer said, “Life is full of ob-stacles and we have to budget our money as best we can.”“What kind of job and the number of kids you have affect how much you can spend,” she detailed. “It was $400 per month for clothing.”Ottoville students Derek Kemper, Nick Moorman and John Knippen each thought the simulation gave them insight into the cost of living.“I was surprised by how much it costs for a house and a car,” Moorman said.Kemper said the exercise taught him he would have to spend his money wisely.“I found out just how expensive kids are,” Knippen said. “It puts how much our parents pay for us into perspective.”Fort Jennings Guidance Counselor Mindy Losh said the simulation is extremely helpful for the students.“As seniors, they will go to Ottawa for a similar exercise,” Losh explained. ” During that simulation, students will be allowed to choose their jobs and get more choices when it comes to what they purchase.”Michelle Leach, Ottoville Guidance Coun-selor, said with the students being so young and not able to choose their career, they have to work with the profiles they are dealt.“Some are single, others are married with children and each have budget variables,” Leach said. “They have to make the best  judgement call.” DOLLAR/ A14 DOMESTIC VIOLENCE/ A14 BY ED GEBERT Times Bulletin VAN WERT — Agricultural land values in Van Wert County are streaking upward this year according to Van Wert County Auditor Nancy Dixon.“It’s all because of the Cur-rent Agricultural Use Valuation program,” Dixon told the Times Bulletin. “We’re not going up anywhere except in agricultural land, and that’s ordered by the state. Since residential and ag-ricultural are taxed as one, the tax rate is adjusted on the two to-gether. If one goes up, the other goes down a little bit, so residen-tial will go down a little bit as ag is going up.”The land values for crop land look to be going up 124 percent. That will mean some adjustment on taxes due during the next three years.Dixon reported, “Another problem coming, though, is the schools are going to hit the 20 mill floor. That’s a floor you can’t go below on the general fund. Crestview hit it at reap-praisal time. Lincolnview and Van Wert are going to hit it this time. So that stops us from re-ducing the millage as much as we would have. Vantage can’t go below two mills, but this won’t affect them.”Van Wert County is one of the approximately 60 of Ohio’s 88 counties to go through this pro-cess this year. Also affected are Mercer, Auglaize, and Putnam. Dixon noted that landowners can see the new property values on-line at“You can see the values there or stop in at the Auditor’s Office and we’ll be happy to help them out,” Dixon said.Tax bills probably will be due in January, according to Dixon. She said it usually takes until December to get the rates from the state and to get the bills sent out.  Ag land  values showing big increases Manufacturing Open House at  Vantage Vantage Career Center held a Manufacturing Open House Friday to celebrate Manufacturing Month in Ohio.

( Trisha Pollock Wiggins June 26, 1974 - Oct. 24, 2014Dec. 2, 1973 - Oct. 21, 2014 Suspect arrested in death of two California deputies SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A man armed with an as-sault rifle shot three sheriff’s deputies and a civilian, killing two of the deputies and leading dozens of police officers on a wild six-hour chase and manhunt Friday that spanned two Northern California counties before the 34-year-old suspect was taken into custody.Marcelo Marquez, of Salt Lake City, was taken alive Friday afternoon from a home in Auburn in Placer County after the initial shooting hours earlier in a strip mall in a commercial area of Sacramento, said Placer County Sheriff’s spokeswom-an Dena Erwin.“This guy was on a one-man crime spree today. He has no idea of the damage he did,” she said.The four shootings sparked a massive manhunt by multiple agencies backed by search dogs, helicopters and armored ve-hicles. Residents nearby were told to stay indoors, and schools were locked down during the search. The owner of the home said officers used tear gas to drive the suspect from the base-ment.The slaying of the deputies was the single deadliest day for California law enforcement since February 2013. In separate incidents that month, former Los Angeles police officer Chris-topher Dorner killed two law enforcement officers, and two Santa Cruz police detectives were shot and killed.A woman who was with the suspect earlier was also taken into custody in Placer County, and authorities said she had a handgun in her purse. Marquez was taken to a hospital before he could be booked into jail, Erwin said.Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said the deadly chain of events began when Deputy Danny Oliver, 47, ap-proached a suspicious occupied vehicle in a motel parking lot around 10:30 a.m. and was shot in the forehead at close range. Oliver, the first county deputy killed since 2008, was a 15-year veteran who leaves behind a wife and two daughters.“He was not able to return fire or do anything,” Jones said. He said Oliver’s partner was able to shoot back as the vehicle fled the scene.“We live as a family, today we grieve as a family,” Jones said.The driver of the vehicle and a female passenger fled the scene. About a mile away, the suspect attempted to steal a car in a residential area, but shot the driver in the head when he refused to give up his keys, Jones said. He did not know the condition of that victim but said he was alive and conscious when he was transported.The assailants then stole a red Ford pickup from Jose Cruz, who was gardening outside a client’s house in Sacramento.Cruz told The Sacramento Bee that a man in a white Ford Mustang convertible told him he needed a favor: “I need your keys,” the man said. “Hurry up, because they’re chasing me.”Cruz said the man pointed a gun at him and had a bloody shirt wrapped around his other arm.“I feel lucky that he didn’t hurt me,” Cruz said.The suspects then fled to neighboring Placer County, about 30 miles north of Sacramento, where the assailant allegedly shot two Placer County sheriff’s deputies in Auburn.Erwin said a resident reported seeing a vehicle that matched the description of the stolen red truck. Deputies swarmed the area, and the suspect shot two deputies with an AR-15-type as-sault weapon before fleeing into a wooded canyon area, Erwin said. She did not immediately release the deputies’ names or other identifying information, but she said the second Placer County deputy was shot in the arm and was expected to sur-vive. Man launches hatchet attack on police officers NEW YORK (AP) — A brazen daylight hatchet attack against a group of police offi-cers on a busy New York street was a terrorist act by a reclusive Muslim convert who ranted on-line against America but had no clear ties to international extremists, the police commis-sioner said Friday.Police were examining Zale Thompson’s computer for clues about a motive for the Thursday assault that left one of the offi-cers seriously injured and ended with Thompson being killed by police. Police Commissioner William Bratton said Thomp-son’s browsing history included organized terror groups, be-headings and the shooting in Canada earlier this week that officials there have called a ter-rorist attack.Thompson was not on any watch lists, and officials found no indication he sought any training or affiliation to any groups.Bratton said investiga-tors were trying to determine whether the attack was planned or spontaneous but believe Thompson was self-radicalized. His father told officials he con-verted to Islam about two years ago and was described as a “re-cluse” who had been depressed lately.Bratton said he was comfort-able calling it a terrorist attack.“This was a terrorist attack, certainly,” Bratton said.But he also stopped short of including the attack in the list of terror plots against the city since Sept. 11, 2001, say-ing the investigation was con-tinuing.Thompson, 32, had once served in the U.S. Navy and had a history of run-ins with the law over domestic violence in Cali-fornia in 2003 and 2004, po-lice said. In recent postings on social media, he ranted about injustices in American society and oppression abroad, but the postings didn’t point to any af-filiation with a terror group or direct influence of radical Is-lam, they said.Security video and witness accounts appeared to leave no doubt that Thompson purposely targeted four rookie New York Police Department officers who were in uniform and on foot pa-trol in a bustling Queens com-mercial district. In this frame grab taken from video provided by the New York Police Department, an unidentified man approaches New York City police officers with a hatchet, Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014, in the Queens borough of New York. The man injured two with the hatchet before the other officers shot and killed him, police said. A bystander was wounded in the gunfire. Investigators were still trying to confirm the identity of the assailant and determine a motive. (AP Photo/New York Police Department) Read the classifieds INFORMATION SUBMITTED COLUMBUS — No Hal-loween costume or decora-tion is as scary as the con-sequences of drunk driving. This Halloween, remember that Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol will be crack-ing down on impaired driv-ers to keep roadways safe for travel.According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Ad-ministration, almost half (48 percent) of all motor vehicle traffic fatalities on Halloween night in 2012 involved a drunk driver. In 2012 alone, 26 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes on Halloween night.“The Patrol takes the crime of impaired driving seriously,” said Colonel Paul A. Pride, Patrol superintendent. “The tragedies caused by drunk driving are easily preventable, and everyone should do their part by refraining from driv-ing while impaired.”In addition, agents with the Ohio Investigative Unit are reminding everyone who is under 21 that it is against the law to purchase, possess or consume alcohol. It is also illegal to furnish alcohol to anyone who is underage or in-toxicated.Bar staff need to verify the ages of patrons, to ensure that everyone ordering and consuming alcohol is at least 21 or older. Agents are also asking for bar staff to look out for their patrons – don’t over-serve anyone and keep a watchful eye for drugged drinks.Agents will be assisting local and state law enforce-ment agencies with trace-back investigations stemming from alcohol involved crashes or in-cidents.Following these simple tips can help ensure that everyone enjoys their Halloween cel-ebration:· Be responsible by not drinking and driving. Desig-nate a sober driver before fes-tivities begin, or plan to use a taxi or public transportation.· Drink responsibly if you are 21 or older. Bartenders or friends may refuse to serve you. Do not drink if you are younger than 21.· If you see an impaired driver on the road, call #677 to report it. You might save a life.

INFORMATION SUBMITTED LIMA — The West Ohio Food Bank is pleased to announce a meaningful partnership that is expected to generate 50,000 meals dur-ing a November promotion. Fresh Encounter, Inc., the parent company of local Great Scot and Community Market stores has committed to donating eight meals for every turkey purchased from one of their stores. The promotion begins on Nov. 1 and continues through November.The campaign, called “Thanks for Giving,” is expected to generate 50,000 meals for the West Ohio Food Bank. Gary Bright CEO of the West Ohio Food Bank sums it up best stating, “The simplicity of this program makes it appealing in that all you need to do is buy any whole turkey any time in the entire month of November and our partners at Fresh Encounter (Great Scot and Community Market) will make a donation di-rectly to us.” Bright continued, “It’s partnerships such as this, especially in an economy like ours, that allows us to provide for those in need.”The West Ohio Food Bank serves 11 coun-ties, more than 210 programs and anticipates delivering more than 6,000,000 meals through 2014. While that number may seem impres-sive, the Feeding America Hunger Study indi-cates that the Meal Gap in our service area is about 12,000,000 meals. Bright stated, “Taking a bite of that 12 million meals goal with a donation of 50,000 meals is incredibly helpful and shows just how committed our partners are to Ending Hunger Together.”Bright continued, “I would like to express thanks to all of the area residents who take advantage of this wonderful promotion by seeking out their local Community Market and Great Scot store and buying a ‘Thanks for Giving’ turkey.”  Delphos Chamber members enjoy October Business After Hours UltraSound Special Events, Gilden Insurance Agency and The Delphos Herald sponsored the Delphos Area Chamber of Commerce October Business After Hours at The Kangaroo Cave.
