the internet. Two state agencies publish lists of the latest natural gas
offers from suppliers.

Consider Your Options
The natural gas distribution world has changed. And those changes mean
you have a choice about who supplies natural gas to your home or business.
Our customers can choose a supplier through the Energy Choice program,
or they can purchase their natural gas through Dominion East Ohio's Stan-
dard Service Offer.
More than 800,000 of our 1.2 million customers currently participate in
Energy Choice. Customers not yet participating an those who are evaluating
their options can check prices from a number of suppliers and still pick one
that best suits their needs.
A good one-stop source for prices and options is the Public Utilities Com-
mission of Ohio's Apples to Apples price comparison chart. Visit www.puco.
ohio.gov or call the commission toll free at 1-800-299-7271.
Information also is available through the Ohio Consumers' Counsel, www.
pickocc.org, or 1-877-742-5622. Dominion's Standard Service Offer, which
varies from month to month, also is listed on
these sites.
No matter which supplier provides your
natural gas, Dominion East Ohio ;will con-
tinue to deliver the fuel to your home or
business.
We also will continue to offer payment
plans such as budget billing and will handle
emergency calls and other customer-service
calls.
The company makes a regulated profit on
the delivery of natural gas. Dominon East
Ohio does not earn any profit al on all the
gas it sells. Instead, it is allowed to recover
the cost of securing natural gas supplies on
a dollar-for-dollar basis.

From St. Rita’s Medical Center
Sometimes, leaving the hospital is just the beginning
of getting better.
Whether it’s stroke, surgery or injury, there’s often a
need for rehabilitation to get back to normal. That’s
where outpatient rehabilitation centers come in. They
offer the ability to get better, closer to home.
There are many options, and it can be hard to choose
the right one. The National Institutes of Health’s Med-
line Plus (medlineplus.gov), suggests starting early.
If your surgery is planned, discuss your rehab options
ahead of time. If your hospital stay is unplanned, you
and your family should start planning as soon as your
recovery begins.
When choosing a rehabilitation center some obvious
concerns are location and hours of operation. Other
questions to ask include the range of services offered
and whether the facility has dealt with your type of
injury or illness.
Dean Rallof, assistant director of physical medicine
and rehabilitation at St. Rita Health Partners, said
convenient location is one big reason St. Rita’s oper-
ates four rehabilitation centers. In addition to the main
hospital campus, St. Rita’s has satellite locations at
the Wapakoneta and Putnam County YMCA’s as well
as the Delphos Ambulatory Care Center.
Rallof said St. Rita’s can provide rehabilitation ser-
vices for all neurological and orthopedic situations.
“You need not look any further than that,” Rallof said.
“We’re easy to get to we’re close to your home. You
don’t have to travel to Lima to get St. Rita’s rehab
services.”
Rallof said common areas of treatment include knee
and hip replacement surgery, strokes and injuries, but
St. Rita’s has some more specialized rehab services,
including therapy for migraine headaches and the
Saebo system of specialized equipment to help stroke
victims and brain injury patients regain use of their
hands.
There’s also a program for individuals whose vision
has been affected by stroke and work conditioning
services to help people injured on the job return to
work. Pool therapy is offered in Lima, Wapakoneta
and Putnam County.
Rallof is certain St. Rita’s is the best choice, but said
the final decision should be made by you and your
physician.
“It should always be discussed with a physician,” he
said. “They can make the referral, if needed.”
You can find more information about St. Rita’s reha-
bilitation services at StRitas.org.

Associate of Arts degree, or an Associate of Science
degree, as well as selected baccalaureate degrees.
Trade schools offer trade-specific classes
leading to a particular career and courses of study may
be completed in two to four years.
The location and cost of a school are also
factors to consider. Students must decide if they prefer
to stay close to home or if they are willing to travel far
to get an education. How much debt, if any, a student
is willing to incur is a big influence in where a student
decides to go to college.
Financial Aid comes from a variety of sources.
The four basic types are scholarships, grants, student
employment, and loans.
Scholarships usually are meant to cover educational
rather than living expenses, and are often given to students
who have excelled in high school or who have special talents.
They do not have to be repaid.
Grants are generally awarded on need alone, may be
used for education or living expenses, and do not have to be
repaid.
Student Employment can be campus-based or
outside the school. A benefit is that students gain experience
while they learn, but they may not have adequate study time
if they are overburdened by their job.
Most Student Loans are low-interest and provide a
grace period after college graduation to begin repayment.
Financial aid is usually awarded in greater
amounts proportional to the expense of the school.
Thus, even with a large financial aid award, some
schools are financially beyond the scope of many
students, because the costs not covered by the award
are still too much to handle. Do your math! and
remember to include the cost of everyday expenses in
what you will need.
Choose a school that suits your particular
personality and learning style. This is as important as
where it is and how much it costs. When you visit a
campus, it should "feel" right. Talk to representatives
at the school, and find out what kinds of support are
available to students. Talk to the other students. Make
sure that you can grow in your new environment. When
you get there, get involved. Develop study skills, and
don't be afraid to seek help. Make your college
education the life-enriching experience it should be.
Studies have shown that college graduates earn a
higher income than non-college graduates and that going
to college adds a dimension to a person’s life experience
that may be even more important than the higher earning
capacity. The question then is not if a college education
is a good idea, but where to go, and how to make that
choice.
The right college will be different for different
people. It may be the one that is conveniently located,
the one that offers the best value, the one that offers the
desired course of study, or even the one that offers the
best social life. Some colleges offer better accessibility
to graduate schools, if that is important to an individual.
For many high school students, the initial search
for the right college is a huge task because they have not
narrowed their vision of what is possible or what they
want, and they don’t know how to get the information to
allow them to begin that narrowing process.
There are many ways to get information and
recommendations on a college. Family, friends, high
school counselors and college rating guides are just some
of the readily available means of gaining input into this
decision. After all the input, though, each individual
must choose the college that best suits his or her needs.
So, how to choose?
Begin by deciding what kind of college you want
to attend. Types include universities, private colleges,
community colleges, trade schools, etc.
Liberal Arts Colleges emphasize undergraduate
study and provide a broad education with a wide range of
majors that are focused on in the junior and senior years of
college.
Universities are larger institutions that offer
undergraduate and graduate levels of study. Liberal arts and
science colleges are divisions within the university, and offer
course work in a variety of subjects. Generally, universities
have more diverse student bodies. They also provide research
facilities and additional resources to support students'
educational needs.
University Regional Campuses are popular choices
because they offer a quality advanced education that is
typically at a lower cost, and have smaller classes and more
personal assistance. Credits earned at a regional campus
are transferable to 4-year institutions and other universities
and colleges. Students may earn an

HERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD
ASK WHEN SELECTING A FUNERAL HOME
•Are you a locally owned funeral home?
•Life insurance and pre-paid services cover the
cost of many funeral services. What types of services
could I receive here if I have these options (Note: Ask
only if a loved one made such previous arrange-
ments)?
•What are the necessary steps, materials and/or
government regulations to consider when pre-arrang-
ing a funeral (Note: Ask only if pre-arranging a funer-
al)?
•Am I able to customize the funeral service I want
for the deceased?
•What kinds of funeral packages (if any) do you
offer?
MATERIALS TO PICK UP WHILE AT THE
FUNERAL HOME
•Ageneral price list and list of services
•Acopy of specific prices if the general list does not
include prices for such things as caskets, urns, etc.
•A written memorandum of charges (if funeral
goods and services are agreed upon/purchased)
WHAT IS A FUNERAL AND WHY HAVE ONE?
Amemorial service or funeral is a gathering of fam-
ily and friends who come together to honor the mem-
ory of someone who has died.
It is important to most of us to commemorate the
significant events that happen throughout our lives.
Baptisms, graduations, weddings, birthdays, anniver-
saries, and memorial services or funerals are all exam-
ples of important life events that we recognize
through some form of ritual or ceremony.
Memorial services and funerals provide an impor-
tant rite of passage. Similar to rituals which mark
other transitions in life, memorial services and funer-
als provide a time for family and friends to acknowl-
edge the life of the loved one, and share their feelings
concerning the loss of this person in their lives.
Coming together like this helps people accept the
death, which is a critical part of adjusting to the loss
and like other life events, they allow us to come
together and help each other.
Memorial services and funerals can be as unique as
the people planning them. While they are often held
at churches, synagogues, or funeral homes, they may
be held in any location requested by the family.
Memorial services and funerals that remember the
individual in personal ways can be very healing. We
all carry memories, and it is helpful to share these
memories through readings or music, or other kinds
of participation.
Memorial services and funerals are an important
ritual in our lives. They affirm our basic beliefs about
life and death, and help us through our loss.
WHAT DO FUNERAL DIRECTORS DO?
The primary role of a funeral director is to help, and
to serve people after they have experienced a death.
Funeral directors help the family plan the memori-
al service or funeral, and then take responsibility for
coordinating those decisions. This includes matters
such as: securing the location for the service; arrang-
ing for someone to officiate; ordering the flowers and
memorial folders; providing the obituary and other
information to newspapers; filing legal documents
with governmental agencies; and, directing various
aspects of the service itself. The funeral director is also
responsible for preparing the deceased for the servic-
es and making sure the presentation fulfills the wish-
es of the family.
In all these activities, it is the concerned, caring
service to families that is the hallmark of the funeral
director. Advisor, counselor, organizer, and caregiver
are just some of the roles which funeral directors play
in helping you through your loss.
WHAT KIND OF SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE?
Memorial and funeral services can be as varied as
the lives of the individuals they acknowledge. Every
memorial or funeral service can be a unique experi-
ence which commemorates the life of a loved one or
valued friend.
While Memorial and funeral services traditionally
have been held at churches, synagogues, or funeral
facilities, they can be held at many other locations:
parks, a friend or family member’s home, senior citi-
zen centers, schools, or almost any public place
requested by the family.
The memorial or funeral service can be a ceremony
which acknowledges the person and involves family
and friends. People can participate through music,
reading, speaking, or sharing stories about the indi-
vidual who has died. All the ways that the person
loved life can be brought into the memorial or funer-
al service.
Probably the best answer to the question of, “What
kind of memorial or funeral services are available?” is
to ask, “What would you like the memorial or funer-
al service to be?”
A funeral home can talk with you and help you
plan a memorial or funeral service, that expresses
your needs and desires.

How to Choose a Quality Fitness Facility
Whether you are a health seeker searching for a healthier lifestyle or an avid exerciser, choosing a fitness
facility can be a daunting task. Studies show that more than 50% of U.S. adults do not get enough
physical activity to make a difference in their health and in the past 10 years, obesity rates in the United
States have increased 60%. The statistics are clear that we all need to take steps toward a more active
way of life.
Your Wapakoneta Family YMCA is taking steps to reach out to children, teens, adults and families
whose successful pursuit of health and well-being requires continuously supportive relationships and
environments. One of our goals is to target these “health seekers” to give them guidance in making
positive changes in their pursuit of well-being. The YMCA is not just a place to go to workout. It’s a
community of people who are here to support you through your wellness journey.
What kind of reputation does the facility have? The Wapakoneta Family YMCA is a Christian-based
facility and has been serving Wapakoneta for over 13 years. Our mission is to put Christian principles
into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. The YMCA is proud to
continually be voted Wapakoneta’s Best Exercise establishment by Wapakoneta Daily News Readers.
Is the facility easily accessible and are the hours convenient? The Wapakoneta Family YMCA is
conveniently located between State Routes 501 and 198 and offers well-lit, ample parking. The hours of
operation can accommodate all shift workers. Beginning in mid-October, our hours are Monday-Friday
5am-10:30pm, Saturday 7am-8pm and Sunday 1pm-5pm.
Will I feel welcome? At the Wapakoneta Family YMCA, you will be greeted the moment you walk through
the doors. We pride ourselves on our friendly service and caring staff. One of the primary responsibilities
of all the YMCA staff is to get to know the members who walk through our doors and make them feel
welcome. If a member consistently misses classes many instructors will call, send letters or emails that
member to make sure all is well.
Will someone be there to answer my questions and help me with the equipment? The Wellness Center
is staffed over 50 hours/week by trained, certified and knowledgeable Wellness Coaches. In addition, every
member receives a free equipment orientation to ensure proper use and technique on the equipment. At
no additional cost, the YMCA offers Fitlinxx, an exercise technology system that automatically tracks the
weight, sets, repetitions and time on each machine. It also remembers seat settings and records range
of motion to ensure a safe and effective workout. Teens 13-15 may also use the Wellness Center after
completing the Teen Weight Training course.
Does the facility offer a variety of equipment? The YMCA offers a wide variety of state-of-the-art
equipment including treadmills, elliptical trainers, upright bikes, recumbent bikes, hybrid bikes, XRides,
rowing machine, stairmaster, upper body ergometer. We also have 18 selectorized weight machines and
a large free weight area. All this equipment is housed in a 6,400 square foot Wellness Center, and waiting
for equipment is very rare. The YMCA also offers a wide variety of aerobics classes, which unlike many
other fitness facilities, are included in the cost of a membership. We also offer a 6-lane pool, track and
gym which are free with a membership.
What sets the YMCA apart from other local fitness options? The YMCA has programs for beginning
exercisers to athletes, individual exercisers to those who prefer group settings, young to young at heart.
We offer over 30 land and water aerobics classes throughout the week, all free of charge to YMCA members.
For more personalized attention, our certified Personal Trainers are second to none and have a genuine
desire to introduce people to healthy lifestyles and offer assistance on their wellness journey. We believe
in improving spirit, mind and body through exercise and proper nutrition, not through supplements. As a
non-profit, you can be sure that our primary concern is your well-being and satisfaction.
Will I feel safe? The YMCA is staffed during all open hours and you are never alone in the building. All of
our staff are certified in CPR, AED, First Aid, Blood Borne Pathogens and Child Abuse Prevention. There
is a lifeguard on duty at all times.
Is it affordable? The Wapakoneta Family YMCA offers competitive rates and no one is turned away
from the YMCA because of an inability to pay. Our financial assistance program has allowed thousands
of individuals & families to enjoy the benefits of the YMCA who otherwise would not be able to afford a
membership. A YMCA membership allows you access to all program areas and the majority of fitness
classes are included in your membership!
Is it clean and well-maintained? The Wapakoneta Family YMCA is known for being a clean and well-
maintained facility. Equipment is wiped down on a daily basis and machines are checked weekly to ensure
operational use.
Is it family friendly? The YMCA offers activities for all ages and interests. Swim lessons, soccer,
gymnastics, Gym & Swim and Youth Fitness such as Zumba, Pilates, Group Cycling and Yoga are just
a few activities offered toward children. Children under eight can play in the fully staffed nursery while
mom and dad workout. Pre-teens and teenagers have fun hanging out in the Youth Center. YMCA Family
Nights are open to the public and are a great way for the entire family to spend a fun evening together.
The YMCA offers many fabulous opportunities for children to role model a healthy lifestyle and learn to
be active at an early age.
Does my opinion count? The YMCA conducts Membership Satisfaction Surveys periodically. Feedback
from these surveys sets the tone for our decision-making.
Does this facility promote fellowship and a sense of community? The Wapakoneta Family YMCA is
much more than a fitness facility. Fostering relationships and a sense of community is paramount in the
work we do at the YMCA. You will find couches and chairs in the Wellness Center and we have coffee
in the lobby during the morning hours. We also offer a Community Room that can be used for special
events. Your Wapakoneta Family YMCA is an extension of your family!
