To the editor,

The Delphos Public Library’s Summer Reading Program, Fizz! Boom! Read! has drawn to a close, ending with our very popular pool party on a glorious, warm summer night.

Ninety out of 140 eligible swimmers attended and brought their families along, too. In order to be eligible, the kindergarten through fifth graders had to read 100 minutes a week for five weeks or a total of 500 minutes.

We took our grandchildren to see the fine fireworks at Delphos Stadium park on July 4. When we returned to our car parked on Clay Street, there was a note on the windshield. Someone had observed our car being sideswiped and was able to get the license number.

To the editor,

My 3-year-old daughter and I drove to a local drugstore Thursday evening to get medicine for my son and before we even got into the store, my daughter was asking if she could get a race car they have there. I had no idea what she was talking about but as soon as we got in the store, she was pointing to the race cars. Of course, I told her we weren’t there to buy a car and we went on our way.

After getting what we needed, there we stood in line waiting to check out right by the race cars. My daughter had taken two off the shelf and was rolling them on the floor playing her heart out. I told her to put them back and get out of the way of an older man pushing a cart up to the counter. He stopped her and asked if she likes cars. She said yes and then he asked her to see it.

Brothers appreciate coverage of building’s demolition PDF Print

To the editor,

My brother, Alfred Schmit, and I would like to thank The Delphos Herald for the excellent coverage given to the recent demolition of the former Schmit’s Market building at Second and Canal streets in Delphos.

Our father, Nicholas Schmit, was the former owner of the Schmit and Patton Grocery during the 1920s and 30s. Dad died in 1935 and left our mother with eight children. The grocery provided mother and her eight children with an income during The Great Depression and World War II.

Brothers Jerome and Alfred both served in the Army during the war. Jerome is now deceased but he was also a partner in the grocery.
