PAULDING The first phase of
the Paulding County Hospital re-
modeling project is now complete.
An open house for hospital employ-
ees was held on Thursday, March 28,
to unveil the large new emergency
room area. Staff members are very
excited about this state-of-the-art
project as they now have more space
and modern equipment which makes
it more convenient for patients.
There are currently five examina-
tion rooms instead of four. There is
also a glassed in centralized nurses
station so the nursing staff can see
into each room. The nursing station
is light, roomy and convenient. The
ER is equipped with a patient rest-
room as well as a break room and
restroom for staff.
A total of 800 square feet was
added to the ER, bringing the total
space utilized to 2,000 square feet as
other space was repurposed.
Two sets of exterior doors have
been added which will create an air
lock and will keep the cold air from
coming directly into the facility.
The facility is staffed with person-
nel 24/7.
CEO Gary Adkins said, We are
very excited to have this Phase One
complete. This was actually in the
planning stage five years ago. The
staff is moving their supplies in today
and we are all very excited.
The new Emergency Department
is working out well, said Lisa
Nicelley, RN, Emergency Room su-
pervisor. There are a few growing
pains, staff has to get used to where
supplies are, etc., but overall, the pa-
tients really seem to appreciate the
enhanced privacy and roomy sur-
The large nursing station is a big
improvement and the staff is really
impressed with the fact that they can
monitor all of their patients more ef-
ficiently, Nicelley added.
Marketing director Brenda
Wieland was very proud of the new
ER, stating that it was a very exciting
time for the hospital and community.
Wieland also noted that this would
be one of the biggest projects com-
pleted by the hospital since the
Medical Office Building was added.
Patients can now enter the ER at
the back drive-up entrance or by
walking into the main lobby.
In the next phase of the building
project, the testing lab will be perma-
nently moved to the east end of the
building. A pneumatic tube, similar
to what the banks use, will be used to
send blood draws and reports to the
lab from the draw area without hav-
ing to manually transport it.
The final phase of the project will
include the addition of a trauma
room. The space for this area will be
taken from the former lab next door
to the ER.
When all phases are complete,
seven exam rooms will be available.
The room that will be finished in
Phase 3 will have two rooms with
folding glass doors that can be made
into one large trauma room for mul-
tiple patients.
Projected total cost of the ER/lab
renovation and expansion is $1.2
million. Completion is scheduled for
this summer.
Records fall
as annual
raises over
Feature Writer
PAYNE Two significant
records fell this past weekend at
the 35th annual Basketball
Marathon. A record number of
teams participated in the 24-hour
event held at the Payne
Elementary School (126) and
most important, the event netted a
record $10,400. All money profit-
ed from this years Marathon will
go to assist the efforts of the
Paulding County Society for
Crippled Children and Adults.
Society official Marcia Pressler
noted that the local organization is
based on an all volunteer corps
and meets in any public building
that will extend a welcome for
usage for meetings. It majors in
speech, occupational and physical
therapy, some assistance with
medications and various educa-
tional seminars and mileage.
Pressler credited good weather
and sentiment for the 35th
Marathon as contributing factors
to this years success.
This was a nice smooth
marathon in every way, said
Pressler. The weather undoubt-
edly helped us. Good weather al-
ways contributes to a good
It helped us that people knew
at the door what the purpose of
the Marathon was. They realized
that they were making a donation
and what for. Some years we have
to explain things, but this year,
everyone seemed to be focused on
the purpose of the Marathon,
Pressler said.
Pressler said that she is thankful
for the money to bolster the soci-
etys funds. She noted that there
are many things in Paulding
County where there is not assis-
tance available.
We are able to offer several
services, including limited medi-
cine assistance. We can also help
guide them to potential assistance
when the medications are more
expensive, added Pressler.
Longtime library employee Vicky Hull has been named the new assistant li-
brary director. She will continue serving as director of adult services.
Hull promoted to assistant
director at Paulding Library
PAULDING Vicky Hull, an 18-
year employee of the Paulding
County Carnegie Library, was pro-
moted to assistant director at the
board of trustees regular meeting on
March 19.
Hull was hired in September 1995
as a part-time library clerk. She
worked as a library clerk until 1998
when she was named head of adult
services. She follows Diana Coy, who
retired in 2012. She will still hold the
title of head of adult services as well
as assistant director.
I am so excited that Vicky accept-
ed this new position, said library di-
rector Susan Pieper. Vicky is phe-
nomenal at customer service and is
passionate about working with the
public. This, teemed with her tena-
ciousness for research, is why I want-
ed her at the desk by the front door.
Plus, added Pieper, she will
bring her experience and expertise as
a part of the librarys administrative
team, helping plot the librarys course
for the next decades.
Hull said, I have always enjoyed
working with the public and interact-
ing with patrons each day. This posi-
tion will allow me a better opportuni-
ty to greet patrons and to provide
them with information they may be
seeking. Making the connection be-

Things went really
smooth. Like always, we had
great help with volunteers
who helped run the clock,
referee, do concessions and
help with many other impor-
tant things, commented
event coordinator Chad
Benschneider. I think that
some of the nostalgia of the
35th Marathon contributed
some to this years success.
We had a lot of people put in
some extra teams.
Once again, this years
Marathon had competition in
seven divisions.
Top awards were captured
by the following teams in
each division:
Mini-Tots first place
Ditmyer at Lee Kinstle 66
points, second place Dealey

awarded to Marcia Pressler
for her long time of service as
our societys treasurer and all
that she has done to help co-
ordinate the event behind the
scenes for the Marathon dur-
ing our 35-year history, said
As always, this success
speaks well of those who par-
ticipated and their commit-
ment to the society, added
Benschneider. Obviously,
people felt like they could
give and commit themselves
this year.

Paulding Council considering one-way street to help school traffic
PAULDING Damage from
trucks, congested traffic around the
school and a vacancy on the recre-
ation committee had Paulding
Village Councils attention during
its regular meeting Monday, April 1.
Councilman Randy Daeger ad-
vised council that there had been
discussion at the recent street com-
mittee meeting regarding truck traf-
fic on village streets. Complaints
have been raised regarding trucks
making short turns and leaving huge
tracks in various yards. The village
street committee decided that vari-
ous streets should be designated as
truck routes.
The street committee also dis-
cussed traffic at the school and rec-
ommended to council that the block
on Jefferson Street between Water
Street and Main Street should be
made a one-way street going west.
Daeger told council that currently
there is a terrible bottleneck on
Jefferson when kids are dropped off
or picked up. Daeger told council
that Police Chief Randy Crawford
has agreed with the recommendation.
Council unanimously approved the
street committee report and sched-
uled a street committee meeting at
5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 16 to dis-
cuss both the truck traffic and one-
way street. Village solicitor Mike
Jones was asked to draft legislation
for the one-way street situation.
The recreation committee met
last week to discuss how the very
wet spring was affecting various
ball schedules. The immediate solu-
tion was presented to council that
the junior high boys can play on
Field 2 at the reservoir to get on
drier ground. They may have to put
in 80 foot base pegs if they are not
there already. Also, the high school
or junior high girls could play at the
reservoir instead of Jeffery Park if
Jeffery Park was too wet.
The committee discussed picking
up branches at the reservoir park
with Bruce Whitman and also dis-
cussed where the village would like
them placed for pickup by village
crews. The committee also asked
Whitman to check to see if he could
handle a few maintenance issues
around the various parks.
Council was informed that Elaine
Sierer had resigned from the recre-
ation committee. Council approved
putting an ad in the Paulding
County Progress to see if they can
find a replacement.
Council unanimously approved
village administrator Harry Wiebes
agenda, which included a water,
sewage and refuse assessment for
residences owned by Todd R.
Dearing and Bridget D. Fulton.
Wiebes agenda also included the
renewal premium of $49,342 for in-
surance coverage with the Ohio
Plan. It was noted that the Village of
Paulding has used the Ohio Plan for
the village insurance for 25 years
and because of this longevity re-
ceived a reduced rate.
A question was raised regarding
the insurance for the new water
treatment plant when it is finished.
Finance Director Melissa Tope
commented that the insurance
would be adjusted for the new water
plant on next years policy.
Tope informed council that the
state auditors came in on March 19
but the actual audit team had arrived
on April 1 and started the audit.
The next regular council meeting
will be at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April
Four qualify for State Science Day
Four Paulding Middle School students qualified for the State Science Day competition to be
held later this year in Columbus. These four students received a superior rating at the West

fiers are, from left Cade McGarvey, who won Best Zoology project; Marcus Miller, Best
Chemistry and Best Use of Computers projects at districts; Jordan Weidenhamer, also a
winner in Best Chemistry and Best Use of Computers; Shawn Jackson, Best

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking rolled
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Lightly grease a 9x13-inch
pan and set aside.
To make the filling: In a

heat, cook the rhubarb, water
and sugar until bubbling.
Then add the cornstarch and
stir until the cornstarch is
mixed throughout and the
mixture has thickened. Add
the almond flavoring and stir.
Keep on the stove over low
To make the crust: In a
large bowl, combine the
shortening, sugar, baking
soda, vanilla, flour, oats, and
cinnamon until the mixture
forms coarse crumbs.
Take half of the crumbs
and pat them into the bottom
of the prepared pan. Remove
the filling from the heat and
pour over the bottom crust,

the crumbs evenly over the

Rhubarb finds its way into
so many baked goods. It just

everything. Mom baked with
her homegrown rhubarb often
and she never had trouble
growing rhubarb.
If you want to start your

rhubarb one year and then use
it the second year. I have al-
ways done this and always
had good luck. You dont use
the rhubarb for a year, so that
you can give the plants time
to develop strong roots.
I got my starts from a lady
in church and just planted a
whole row of them. Every
year they get fuller and
spread out more. I plant my
rhubarb in full sun, because I
dont think the plants do as
well in the shade.
A lot of times people will
plant them right at the edge of
their garden. We do this and
also put horse manure around
the plants in the spring which
seems to help them grow. The
rhubarb is one of the first
goodies ready to be harvested
in the spring, and this recipe
is a great way to start using it.
4 cups rhubarb cut into 1/4-
inch pieces
2 cups water
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon almond flavor-
3/4 cup shortening, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
the oven for supper in the
evenings. Mom would sprin-
kle sugar and cold milk on
top. We never had it for
breakfast unless it was left
over. My dad wouldnt put
milk on it; he would just eat
it warm. I have fixed rhubarb
shortcake for my children
many times and some like it
more than others.
If we have ice cream in the
freezer, they would prefer
that ice cream be served with
it. We never had that choice
growing up. They dont act like
they care for the milk on the
rhubarb like I did when I was
younger. The children do really
like rhubarb juice and jam.
3 cups sour milk
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups chopped rhubarb
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, combine the
soda, baking power, flour and
salt. Then gradually add the
sour milk until a really soft
dough forms. Spread a layer of
this dough in a 9x13-inch cake
pan and then add a thick layer
of rhubarb. Put the sugar on the
Put rest of the dough on top
and bake until the rhubarb is
tender, about 45 minutes.

Caring for the
outdoor pet
By Mark Holtsberry
Education specialist
Paulding SWCD
If you have a pet that is housed outside, or you take care of
that stray cat that now uses your home as his, make sure that
adequate shelter is provided to shield from wind, moisture, and
basically that Northwest Ohio weather. Take extra care to en-
sure that your pet or stray is comfortable and can get into and
out of their housing easily.
Several pet and feed stores carry safe heated floor mats or
non-electric warm bedding. Deeply bedded straw or hay is an-
other good insulator. If you can, leave that barn door open just
enough so the strays can get inside. Do not use heat lamps or
home heaters, as this type of heating can cause fire.
Pets need to have fresh water at all times. Make sure the
water is not frozen during this time of year. Heated pet bowls
are a solution for frigid temperatures. These bowls are very
handy to have during the cold winter months and are available
in stainless steel or plastic. You can find them at most pet sup-
ply and feed stores.
Also, pets that live outdoors may need additional food (calo-
ries) to sustain body temperature as well. Please check with
your vet to decide if your pet needs additional nutritional in-
take. Keep your indoor or outdoor pets happy and healthy.

Club of Paulding County has been supporting the Paulding
County Carnegie Librarys Diaper Chapters for many years. Their
financial support helps purchase the books that go into these
emerging literacy kits given to new parents in Paulding County.
Here, Kiwanis treasurer Stan Searing, presents library director
Susan Pieper with a check to help with the cost of books for Di-
aper Chapters. We are so grateful for the ongoing support we
have received from the Kiwanis Club, said Pieper. The board
of trustees of the library has determined that creating new read-
ers is our number one priority and Diaper Chapters helps us
meet that objective by putting literacy information and a book
into the hands of those with new babies. A new set of Diaper
Chapter kits will be available soon at any of the locations of the
Paulding County library system.

Second chance

Dear Editor,
Congratulations to Jeff

Parents grave
marker moved
Dear Editor,
Last week I went down to
Hedges Cemetery at
Broughton to check on my
dads grave. The marker was
gone and moved someplace
else without permission.
This marker was set in ce-
ment and had been there
since 1965.
I found out a worker (and
probably some help) had
done all this damage. I got
about three different stories
what happened, but I dont
believe any of it. I feel this
person should be repri-
manded somehow, not just a
slap on the wrist. I want my
dads grave restored to origi-
nal state, and I am getting it
done. What a heartbreaking

Bargain Bin
still changing
after 51 years
Dear Editor,
If I were to ask you if you
knew where the best bar-
gains in Paulding are, how
would you answer? I hope
you would say the Bargain
Bin of Paulding County Inc.
The BB has been in opera-
tion for 51 yrs. An article
was found recently in a
scrapbook that was donated
to the John Paulding Histori-
cal Society by the family of
Jean Stuart. It was written in
the Toledo Blade. The article
stated that a group of ladies
gathered together during the
polio epidemic and decided
that there was a great need
for a therapy department so
those who were afflicted
with the illness would not
have to travel great distance
for rehab.
The ladies began by seek-
ing donations of clothes, etc.
from the community and
selling them at a small cost.
In time they were able to
provide physical therapy
equipment to the Paulding
County Hospital. Since that
time, thousands of dollars
have been given to the phys-
ical therapy department for
purchase of items that
maybe you have used. We
have one of the nicest ther-
apy departments in the area.
The BB is opened every
Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
and Saturday from 9 a.m.-
noon. Monday is usually the
work day when new items
are put on the shelves from
donations that came in dur-
ing the week.
Every item that is dis-
played is checked for rips,
stains, etc. We sell only nice
items that you would be
pleased to wear.
For your convenience, we
have a small building at the
back of the BB for you to
drop off your donated items
any time throughout the
Items that are not accepted
are donated to the Fort
Wayne Missions. Old T-
shirts are put in a bag and
sold for grease rags.
Recently it was decided
that the mens pants and suit
coats would be sized. This
has proven to be a good
move. People can come in
and see the size on the tag
and know immediately what
the waist size and inseam is.
In time we hope to do this
with more of our items. We
do our best to keep the sizes
separated in all of the areas
for convenience of our cus-
Watch the paper for special
bag sales. No where can you
get a large bag of clothes for
$5. We do this quite often and
many customers have taken
advantage of the sale.
One of our most recent do-
nations is a beautiful brand
new wedding dress. The price
tag was left on the dress. We
would love to sell it to you at
a minimal cost. We also have
a few other wedding dresses
along with prom dresses.
Come in an see what we have.
The BB is located on West
Perry across the street from
the Eagles, next to the old
theater. We are bursting at
the seams and are looking
for a new place of residence.
In the past 51 years the BB
has been in a variety of
places. We are hoping that
someone might step forward
and offer us a place that
would give us more room.
Until then we will continue
business as usual. A bigger
place would allow us to sell
large items that right now
we have no room for.
New members are always
welcome to join the BB.
Rhonda Smalley is presi-
dent. Want to join? Just ask
Rhonda or any member and
we will gladly fill you in on
what you need to know.
Meetings are held the second
Monday at the hospital edu-
cation room at 10:30 a.m. in
the months of July, Septem-
ber, November, January and
March. Our reorganization
month is May and we cele-
brate with a luncheon.
So I wish the Bargain Bin
of Paulding County Inc. a
very happy birthday and best
wishes for continued suc-

May hearing set
to resolve Manor
House, Essen
House matters
Progress Staff Writer
amended complaint was filed
last week against Manor
House Assisted Living Ltd.
and Essen House Restaurant
Ltd. by Antwerp Holdings
The four-page document
filed with the Paulding
County Court of Common
Pleas, asks for judgment
against the two in the sum of
$579,245.63. The request is
based on a claim of unjust en-
richment and would cover
back rent.
Additionally, the plaintiff is
seeking prejudgment interest
on that sum plus all other
just and proper relief in the
Both businesses were for-
merly housed in the property
now occupied by Vancrest of
Antwerp LLC.
Antwerp Holdings alleges
in the complaint that it held a
lease with TDM3 Ltd. for the
property in question, bearing
addresses on Archer Drive
and Woodcox Street in
Antwerp. It further said that
entity allowed Manor House
and Essen House to take pos-
session of the property with-
out the consent of the
landowner or a lease with
Further allegations say nei-
ther business paid rent to the
plaintiff during their time in
the premises owned by
Antwerp Holdings.
A recent judgment entry in
the case file showed several
actions taken by the Court.
Attorney Joseph Burkard
was allowed to continue as
Receiver over Manor House
and Essen House businesses.
He will retain full financial
control over both accounts
and is the only authorized re-
cipient of Medicaid checks
for Manor House services
provided through Feb. 28.
He was authorized to pay
the outstanding water and
sewer invoices due to
Antwerp Village.
The Court retained juris-
diction in three areas. First it
will determine priority of all
other claims or expenses re-
lated to Manor House and
Essen House. Three were
specified: repairing the fire
alarm system, paying real es-
tate taxes, and paying accrued
vacation pay to employees.
Next the Court may deter-
mine payments made out of
the business accounts. Of
special note here were previ-
ously unauthorized payments
totaling $55,996.05 by defen-
dant Louis Lengacher.
The Court will also decide
issues relating to removal of
personal property from the fa-
cilities without prior Receiver
or Court approval.
Motions regarding the re-
maining issues of this case
are to be filed by May 3 with
responses due by May 17. A
May 23 hearing on all these
matters was set.

In My Opinion
A happy place
There is one season of the year that really warms my heart
and makes me feel good all over (or at least as good as can be
expected at my age); that season is spring. I have experienced
many spring seasons and in my opinion this has been one of the
coldest, most miserable springs I have ever experienced! But, I
know that my own advice would be, Just wait a month or two
and you will be complaining
about the hot weather as we
enter the summer months.
Now on to the good news.
I now have a few flats of
plants started. When the
weather breaks I will be
ready to get out the tiller and
plant several rows of toma-
toes, cabbage, onions and
peppers with lots of other vegetables to follow. You see, I love
to garden and watch things grow, then maybe or maybe not eat
the vegetables I have grown. It is hard, backbreaking work, but
it is therapeutic as the hoeing and growing gives me some qual-
ity time to think about the important things in life. You certainly
understand about these important things like: Should I get the
hose out and give the garden some water? Should I plant some
more melons? Should I harvest the cabbage? You know, those
important things that make my garden a happy place.
But in all seriousness, I do spend time thinking about more
important things when I am gardening. Things like some pas-
sage from the Bible that is on my mind, a comment or question
someone shared with me, sometimes I even hum or think about
a happy tune and might even find myself whistling a bit or lis-
tening to the birds. My garden is truly a happy place for me. It is
also a place of solitude where I can get in touch with something
or someone that means so much to me. I have even been able to
think through the flow of many sermons as I do mundane tasks
like point the hose to get the right amount of water where it is
needed, pull out/hoe weeds, run the tiller and even pick toma-
Friends come to my garden and they look around and say,
How nice or You sure have a lot of tomatoes. Sometimes
friends even try to give me advice, which is not necessary be-
cause I will do it my way. That is part of the peace that I find in
my garden each year. I always grow something, in spite of
everything in and out of my control. I am able to pass something
on to the world, even if it is just a smile because I have spent
some time in the solace of my garden and may even have talked
to a few plants (I dont think they ever understand, but they are
good listeners).
I hope to see you in church this Sunday; we might have
something in common.

County officials take steps to
repair 127-year-old courthouse
Feature Writer
PAULDING Paulding County Commission-
ers have taken action toward repairs on the
countys courthouse with the awarding of con-
tracts to redo the roof and do painting below the
roof line.
Gregg Huey Construction, Inc. of Pennville,
Ind. put in the lowest bid of $109,762.40 for roof
restoration. Bids ranged between the Huey bid
and and one from General Restoration Contrac-
tors from Columbus for $229,400. Other firms
submitting bids which fell between the two
ranges were Bebout and Houg, Van Wert, Tri-
County Roofing, Paulding and Traditions,
Huey has installed 17,000 square feet of
Decra shingles commercially, commented
Commissioner Tony Zartman. He knows what
he is doing. We feel confident with him that the
job will be completed in timely and professional
Last summer, work was done on the dome fol-
lowing the June 29 storm that passed through the
The painting contract was awarded to Monroe
Painting of Lima for submitting a bid of $32,875.
Bids for that project ranged between that bid and
one for $94,400 from General Restoration from
Columbus. Other bids were received from All
Trades Historical Restoration of Tampa, Fla.,
who also recently purchased the old jail, and Tra-
Everything below the roof line, windows,
and all, will be painted this year. Everything
above the roof line was painted last year, said
Commissioner Fred Pieper. They will take the
storm windows off, caulk original windows and
do what needs to be done in that area.
Other projects at bay, but hopefully to be ad-
dressed within the next year, include much
needed repairs of the sandstone where commis-
sioners are concerned about erosion that is set-
ting in.
This is going to be a major expense, it is not
cheap, said Pieper. Eventually, we are going
to have to do the high efficiency lighting. That
is more difficult than it seems because it is more
than simply replacing bulbs. It means replacing
fixtures and other needed repairs. We are hoping
there is a possibility that we might be able to do
that yet this year.
Commissioner Roy Klopfenstein noted that
another area of concern is the wood work on the
main floor, especially the east entrance.
Pieper said that many of the repairs had been
postponed because of a major financial crunch
that took place in 2009. County officials at that
time were forced to cut courthouse hours and
take other measures in order to avert a worse fi-
nancial crisis at the time.
The economy has turned around enough
and we have had increased sales tax and in-
creased general fund receipts to begin doing
these much-needed repairs, Pieper said.
Commissioners noted that the general fund
receipts for the first two months of this year
have increased 11 percent since 2009 and that
sales tax receipts have increased 21 percent.
On the down side, general fund expendi-
tures for the first two months of this year are
23 percent higher than 2009.
We can only put off the responsibility to this
courthouse so long, said Pieper. We feel that
now is the time that we need to go with this.
The current courthouse was built in 1886
and is the third courthouse to serve the resi-
dents of Paulding County. In 1974, it was
listed on the National Register of Historic

Tough love in the garden
Every year I make the same
vow no more plant heroics.
If a plant isnt performing
well, its outta here. With
perennials alone, there are too
many wonderful things avail-
able so theres really no room
or reason for keeping strag-
glers and prima donnas. One
of the nurseries I occasionally
order plants from has over
1,000 perennials suitable for
our zone (5b/6a) alone more
than enough from which to
Yet there they are surviv-
ing, not thriving and still
green. If they still have green
on them, theyll be fine,
right? If the sun shines in just
the right way, the rain falls at
the perfect time, and I re-
member to fertilize when they
need it, theyll make a turn-
around and eventually live up
to the expectations I had
when I planted them.
Its not likely that all of that
is going to happen or even
two out of three. The garden
of my dreams isnt the garden
of my reality. Still, for some
reason it feels wrong to com-
post living plants. I sound
like a hoarder, dont I? A
plant hoarder.
Well, this year will be dif-
ferent. As I walk around the
garden, and survey the state
of things at the start of a new
season, I see new growth,
dead stuff, and things that are
somewhere in between. Its
those things hanging in limbo
that may or may not live to
see another season.
Its early yet, so I cant
ugly and eventually fall off.
The flowers are still lovely, but
the plant ends up looking like
lollipops on thorny sticks.
There are ways to treat black
spot, but there are many roses
that arent as affected by it and
Im going to stick with those.
For several years now, Ive
tried to grow things that arent
happy with my alkaline soil.
Soil pH is more important to
some plants than others and
those that prefer it on the acidic
side simple dont do well for
me. These include azaleas, rho-
dodendrons, blueberries,
astilbes, bergenias, and fox-
glove, among others.
It doesnt mean I cant grow
these acid lovers; it just means
in my garden they may be un-
derwhelming, and Ive found
that to be true. I skirt the issue
with blueberries by growing
varieties that do well planted in
containers where I can control
their soil environment.
Part of the enjoyment I get
from gardening is learning
what plants require to keep
them happy. That means the
stars and the supporting players
in the garden change as time
goes on and I learn new things.
Sometimes its tough to give up
a plant we love when we real-
ize its not right for us. Some-
times life in the garden is

make that decision on some
of them until later, like hardy
hibiscus (Hibiscus
moscheutos) and Rose of
Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus).
Butterfly bush (Buddleia) and
varieties of milkweed (Ascle-
pias spp.) are also late sleep-
ers in the garden, so if you
grow these, dont give up on
them too soon.
Probably the biggest deter-
mining factor for what stays
and what goes will be
weather-related. As the hot
and dry summers are tending
to be more normal for us than
not, my plants of choice will
be those that are drought-tol-
erant. That doesnt mean Im
going to grow only succu-
lents or prairie wildflowers,
but if a plant is perpetually
thirsty, that means extra work
for me and unless were talk-
ing hydrangeas Im reluc-
tant to make the extra effort.
Ill likely be parting with
some roses this year, too. Until
a couple of years ago, I never
had issues with black spot, that
malady that affects many roses
and causes their foliage to get

Best-selling inspirational
author to visit Paulding
PAULDING Philip Gul-
ley, best-selling inspirational
author of many books includ-
ing the Harmony series, will
be speaking at 6 p.m. Tues-
day, April 16 at the Paulding
County Extension Building,
503 Fairgrounds Drive in
Paulding. This event is a
Paulding County Carnegie
Library Centennial Celebra-
tion Event.
Philip Gulley is a Quaker
pastor and beloved writer and
speaker from Danville, Ind.
An eclectic writer, Gulley has
published 17 books, includ-
ing the acclaimed Harmony
series chronicling life in the
eccentric Quaker community
of Harmony, Ind., and the
best-selling Porch Talk series
of inspirational and humorous
essays. Gulleys memoir, I
Love You, Miss Huddleston:
And Other Inappropriate
Longings of My Indiana
Childhood recounts his com-
ing-of-age years in Danville.
Today, Gulley still lives in
Danville, with his wife, Joan,
and their sons, Spencer and
Sam, in a comfortable house
with a welcoming porch.
Many of his characters and
recollections are taken from
his boyhood in this small
Midwestern town.
I picked up Home to Har-
mony a few years ago and it
was exactly what the doctor
ordered, shared Susan
Pieper, library director. The
stories of this small-town
church and its members was
as though I was reading about
some of our small churches. I
laughed and I cried and found
I could not get enough of
Harmony. Philip Gulley is
now one of my favorite au-
thors. His Harmony series is
pure delight.
This is a free event, but
space is limited, so call the li-
brary at 419-399-2032 to
claim an available seat.
Pre-sale of Gulleys dis-
counted books are available
at the main historic library for
$10 each. Titles for sale are

books ahead of time and have
the author autograph them.

able for sale the night of the
event. Refreshments will be

Annual walleye migration under way
on Maumee and Sandusky rivers
COLUMBUS The annual
appearance of migrating wall-
eye in the Maumee and San-
dusky rivers brings fantastic
spring fishing opportunities,
according to the Ohio Depart-
ment of Natural Resources
And local fishermen say it
is on!
Anglers can see the latest
on the walleye bite or review
the 2013-2014 Ohio Fishing
Regulations at
This phenomenon in north-
west Ohio occurs each spring
when a portion of Lake Eries
walleye population moves up
the Maumee and Sandusky
rivers to spawn. The run
brings hundreds of thousands
of fish within casting distance
of eager shore anglers.
Walleye spawning nor-
mally occurs in these rivers
from mid-March through
mid-April, with peak activity
usually the first week of April
when the water temperatures
range from 40 to 50 degrees.
Moderately-high water lev-
els also increases the number
of walleye in the rivers, espe-
cially if river temperatures
are warmer than lake temper-
The best fishing areas in
the Maumee River are from
Orleans Park in Perrysburg
upstream to the end of Jerome
Road in Lucas County.
Sandusky River anglers
will find better success from
Bradys Island to Rodger
Young Park in the city of Fre-
mont. Fishing is prohibited
upstream from Rodger Young
Park to the Ballville Dam.
Anglers are reminded the
bag limit for Lake Erie and its
tributaries is four walleye
until April 30. There is a year-
round 15-inch length limit for
walleye on Lake Erie and its
tributaries to the first dam or
designated landmark.
Fishermen who are wading
also need to ensure they are
prepared to experience an un-
expected cold water immer-
sion and should consider
wearing a flotation device as
well as fish with a partner.
Some anglers choose to
fish from boats. ODNR ad-
vises them to always properly
wear life jackets, take precau-
tions against overloading
their boats and capsizing, be
well dressed to avoid the
onset of hypothermia and be
prepared to handle any emer-
gency. Boats should never be
anchored off the stern.
Special regulations are in
effect for Maumee and San-
dusky rivers during March
and April. Fishing is only al-
lowed between sunrise and
sunset in specified areas, and
treble hooks are prohibited.
Anglers may only use a
single hook that is no larger
than 1 inch from shank to
point. Only fish that are
hooked inside the mouth may
legally be taken, and any
snagged fish must be imme-
diately released.
The sales of fishing li-
censes, along with the Sport
Fish Restoration (SFR) pro-
gram, continue to fund
ODNR Division of Wildlife
fish management operations.
No state tax dollars are used
for these activities. These are
user-pay, user-benefit pro-
The SFR is a partnership
between federal and state
government, industry and an-
glers/boaters. When anglers
purchase rods, reels, fishing
tackle, fish finders and motor
boat fuel, they pay an excise
tax. The federal government
collects these taxes, and the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Serv-
ice administers and disburses
these funds to state fish and
wildlife agencies. These
funds are used to acquire
habitat, produce and stock
fish, conduct research and
surveys, provide aquatic edu-
cation and acquire and de-
velop boat accesses.

A Penny For
Your Thoughts....
By: Nancy Whitaker
Our dog, Baylee, is a
spoiled little Shih Tzu. At age
seven, he is still frisky and
has became an important part
of our family. Born with only
one testicle, cross-eyed and
with a double set of teeth, we
fell in love with him at first
At the time we got Baylee,
we also had an old wiener
dog named Brownie. Baylee
and Brownie became best
friends until Brownie hit age
19, became ill and left this
earth for Doggie Heaven.
Since then, Baylee gets all
of our attention and trust me,
he knows it. He turns his nose
up at his dog food almost
daily and knows we may just
share our dinner with him if
he doesnt eat his own.
Of course, we dont want
Baylee to starve, so we use
different tactics to get him to
eat. I really hate to tell this,
but one day, my husband told
me, Baylee ate all his lunch
today. I fed him with a
I said, Oh no. I spoon-fed
my kids when they were ba-
bies and I sure dont want to
spoon feed a dog.
Arent dogs fun? You al-
most have to be a strict disci-
plinarian or a soft hearted
spoiler, because we have
found no middle ground.
We have bought him count-
less little toys and he con-
stantly carries a favorite one
around in his mouth. When
making his trips out to the
fenced in back yard, he usu-
ally will take a toy out with
him. However, he will usu-
ally drop the toy and strut
around the back yard sniffing
and lifting his leg on every-
He will occasionally see a
stray cat in the yard and will
corner it and bark ferociously.
One day, he met up with a big
old yellow cat. This kitty was
not about to let little squawk-
ing Baylee scare him and he
hissed once, bared his claws
and ran after our poor little
Baylee made a bee line for
the back door yipping and
crying and he knows now not
to mess with that cat.
Occasionally he will es-
cape out of the back yard and
prance around the neighbor-
hood. At first it was difficult
to round him up as he can run
faster than we can.
One day as Baylee was
running loose, my husband
got in the car to go find him.
Baylee happened to hear the
car motor and see him in the
car and came running. He
loves car rides, so the best so-
lution now to convince him to
come to us is to simply open
the car door and he will jump
We have not determined
yet if he would just jump in
our car or anyones car.
The older he gets, it seems
as if he learns new ways to
challenge us. When he is out
in the back yard and wants to
come in, he will jump on the
back door and let us know.
However, lately, he jumps
on the door, waits until we
come to open it and runs back
out in the yard. He does it
over and over and the other
day it took 20 minutes to get
him to come back in.
I am starting to wonder if
somehow our little dog has
outsmarted us? But, you
know, whenever we get home
from being out, he is so
happy to greet us and love us
that we forget all about his
many quirks.
Pets can bring a lot of joy
and happiness into our lives.
They accept us for who we
are and show their love and ap-
preciation maybe by just wag-
ging their tail.
I cannot imagine life without
our dog who brings a lot of joy,
happiness, and love into our
lives. In fact, dont tell, but I
am planning on maybe getting
a little playmate for Baylee.
Do you have a dog who re-
ally brings love and joy into
your life? Have you ever fed a
dog with a spoon? Do you
think your dog has a personal-

you a Penny for Your thoughts.

All fertilizers will have a
series of three numbers dis-
played prominently on the
label. These numbers repre-
sent the percentage by weight
of nitrogen, phosphorus, and
For instance, a 24-4-8 fer-
tilizer will have 24% nitro-
gen, 4% phosphorous as
P2O5, and 8% potassium as
K2O. A 46-0-0 fertilizer will
have 46% nitrogen and no
phosphorous and potassium.
Though all three elements
are important in maintaining
a healthy turf stand, nitrogen
will cause the greatest re-
sponse. Because of this, most
fertilizer recommendations
for lawns are listed as pounds
of nitrogen per 1,000 square
If late fall fertilizer was ap-
plied last October or Novem-
ber, then make only one
fertilizer application this
spring, preferably in late
April or early May, using no
more than 3/4 pound actual
nitrogen per 1,000 square
If a late fall fertilizer was
not applied, then make two
applications this spring; the
first application in early
April, the other in mid- to
late-May using 3/4# actual N
per 1,000 square feet each
Fertilizing with phosphorus
and potassium is also impor-
tant in maintaining a healthy
lawn. The best way to deter-
mine how much phosphorus
and potassium to apply annu-
ally is to follow the recom-
mendations of a soil test.
In lieu of a soil test, a gen-
eral recommendation is to
apply 1/4 as much phospho-
rus and 1/2 as much potas-
sium as nitrogen. For a
one-year fertilization cycle, if
you apply 4 pounds nitrogen
per 1,000 square feet per year,
you should apply 1 pound
phosphorus and 2 pounds
potassium per 1,000 square
feet per year.
It is best to fertilize lightly
in spring and early summer,
little to none in summer, and
heavy in fall. A heavy fall fer-
tilization program will pro-
duce the healthiest turf
throughout the year. Applying
high rates of nitrogen in the
spring and summer stimulates
excess leaf growth at the ex-
pense of root growth. Not only
does this force you to mow
more often, it reduces turf qual-
ity during the summer. High
application rates of spring and
summer nitrogen can also stim-
ulate disease, weed and insect
If you apply a pre-emer-
gence herbicide that is com-
bined with fertilizer in April,
the May fertilizer application
should be skipped. Profes-
sional lawn care companies
may increase the number of ap-
plications while decreasing the
rate of nitrogen per application.
This can give a more gradual
feeding of the grass plants and
produce a high quality lawn.

Revolving Loan Fund is
mainstay of Paulding Co.
Economic Development
Paulding County Commis-
sioners Tony Langham,
Maurice Wannemacher
and Elaine Harp created an
economic development of-
fice for Paulding County.
Monthly meetings were
held with an advisory
board, the commissioners,
and its first director, Sara
Keeran. In 1999, the com-
missioners asked the two
Community Improvement
Committees (CICs) in the
county to form what is
today known as Paulding
County Economic Devel-
opment (PCED), and they
directed that the PCED
board be responsible for
the PCED office and its
From the start, one of the
primary programs that was
used, and still is to this day,
is the Paulding County Re-
volving Loan Fund (RLF).
The goal of the RLF Pro-
gram is to provide financ-
ing to corporations,
partnerships or sole propri-
etorships. This financing
can be for building acqui-
sition, new construction
and/or expansion, equip-
ment, or remodeling for
businesses located in
Paulding County.
The source of funds for
this program is derived
from Community Devel-
opment Block Grants
(CDBG) that are adminis-
tered by Ohio Develop-
ment Services (ODS). The
loans made to Paulding
County businesses are re-
paid to the Paulding
County RLF so that the
money will be available to
re-loan to other businesses.
To be eligible for this
program, the following cri-
teria must be met: Projects
must create or retain jobs;
51 percent of all jobs must
be made available to per-
sons from low to moderate
income households; busi-
ness must be located in
Paulding County.
The loan amount can be
up to $25,000 for each new
job created or up to 40 per-
cent of the project,
whichever is less. The in-
terest rate is at a low fixed
rate, currently 3 percent,
with the fixed term of up to
20 years. As an example, a
typical loan would be 40
percent RLF, 50 percent
local bank, and 10 percent
owner equity.
The minimum require-
ments are: creation of new
jobs; financial participa-
tion by at least one private
lender; adequate collateral
as loan security.
Necessary documenta-
tion includes: independent
project cost estimates; his-
toric and projected finan-
cial statements;
commitments for new eq-
uity and private lender par-
ticipation; and an
environmental impact
All applications are
made to the PCED office
located at 101 E. Perry St.
in Paulding. The staff there
will be helpful in explain-
ing details regarding the
documentation required.
Applications are reviewed
by the Paulding County
RLF Committee, and ODS
approval must be made
prior to a business starting
its project. The entire
process will take a mini-
mum of 90 days to com-
PCED administers the
Paulding County Revolv-
ing Loan Fund, maintains
records, and completes re-
quired reports to the state
and the Paulding County
The PCED office has
tabulated data over the
years on Revolving Loan
Fund loans made in Pauld-
ing County. These tabula-
tions show that the RLF
program has assisted
county businesses with 32
loans totaling $2,618,315,
and 376 new jobs have
been created. This has re-
sulted in millions of dol-
lars in Paulding County
employer payroll to date.
It is the mission of
Paulding County Eco-
nomic Development To
assist business, industry
and local government in
developing job opportuni-
ties and prosperity in
Paulding County.

County office is a part-time
office; Monday and Tuesday
are the best days to reach the
director in the office at 419-
399-8240 or leave a message.
A qualified agency must be
established as tax-exempt or-
ganization under the IRS
Code Section 501(c)(3) and
provide services/programs in
United Ways focus areas of
education, income or health.
The allocation packet re-
quests agency information in
the areas of: constitution and
bylaws, management, finan-
cial reports, statement of co-
operation and statement of
nondiscrimination, to name a
few. The agency must addi-
tionally meet the funding cri-
teria, financial accountability,
community needs, program
priorities and program effec-
tiveness, which include out-
come measures.
United Way of Paulding
County and its partner agen-
cies share two common goals
in the allocation process rela-
tive to the overall mission: 1)
To fund real community
needs as fully as possible and
2) To allocate available funds
for optimum effect among
these needs. Whereas, each
agency views community
needs from its own specific
viewpoint, the United Way
must look at agencies and
needs from the view of the
total community.
Local volunteers serving
on the Citizens Review Panel
and the volunteer members of
the United Way of Paulding
County Board of Directors
determine where the funds
will be invested. These volun-
teers reflect a cross-section of
the community.

The Paulding Progress &
Weekly Reminder
QUESTION: Were strug-
gling to get our children to
be organized and keep their
rooms clean. Do you have
any tips that would help?
JIM: As the father of two
boys, I know how you feel!
Every parent has his or her
own method of handling such
challenges. Its fair to say that
discipline isnt usually the
best way to deal with a situa-
tion like this.
As a matter of fact, a hard-
nosed approach could prove
counterproductive. You could
end up transforming thought-
less irresponsibility into pre-
meditated rebellion.
We recommend you take
full advantage of natural
consequences. Use masking
tape to mark off a boundary at
the doors of your kids rooms,
between their personal
messy zone and the rest of
the house.
Then say, Inside the
messy zone, you can do as
you please. But if you want
anything thats been left on
the floor outside the messy
zone, make sure you pick it
up before bedtime. After that,
it will be confiscated and
placed in quarantine until you
have enough money to buy it
back. The going price is $1.
If nothing else, this is a
good way to reduce clutter in
the house. It can also provide
you with a handy fund for a
family pizza night. The mess
inside their rooms will likely
disappear when they get tired
of it and when they realize
youre not going to hound
them into doing the job.
If these strategies dont
work, consider whether there
might be something more se-
rious going on. Our counsel-
ing team notes that there can
be physical or emotional
causes, such as attention
deficit hyperactivity disorder
(ADHD), for a childs inabil-
ity to follow through on sim-
ple tasks. In that case, you
should see a family counselor
who is trained to diagnose
and deal with such condi-
More than likely, your kids
are just being kids. Best
wishes as you help them take
responsibility for keeping
their rooms presentable!

Winning the Battle for a Generation
By Rick Jones
exec. director Defiance Area Youth for
How has God used failure in your life? For
many who are reading this article you may
identify with the lesson of the story that I am
going to tell you about today. It is a lesson on
failing and having a vision for life. Todays
true story shows how vision can be born out
of failure.
Edward Steichen, who eventually became
one of the worlds most renowned photogra-
phers, almost gave up on the day he shot his
first pictures. At age 16, Steichen bought a
camera and took 50 photos. Only one turned
out which was a portrait of his sister at the
Edwards father thought that was a poor
showing, but his mother insisted the photo-
graph of his sister was so beautiful that it more
than compensated for 49 failures. Her encour-
agement convinced the youngster to stick with
his new hobby.
He stayed with it for the rest of his life, but
it had been a close call. What tipped the
scales? The difference was the vision of Ed-
wards mother to spot excellence in her son in
the midst of a lot of failure.
How has God used failure in your life? For
me, as the father of three boys, I learned early
on how important it is to be an encouragement
to my sons.
Part of that life lesson is reinforced in scrip-
ture where we read, Ephesians 6:4 (NKJV) (4)
And you, fathers, do not provoke your chil-
dren to wrath, but bring them up in the training
and admonition of the Lord.

Rita Thelen presenting Quilts & the Underground Railroad at a meeting of the Paulding County Chapter of the Ohio Genealog-
ical Society. Quilt patterns displayed are, from left Basket, Tumbling Blocks, Star, Log Cabin and Monkey Wrench.
Genealogists learn mysteries of the Underground Railroad
ground Railroad was neither
underground nor was it a rail-
road. It was a network of trails
and safe-houses used by the
slaves on their way to freedom
in Canada. Rita Thelen of Lima
was the speaker at the March
13 Paulding County Chapter of
the Ohio Genealogical Society
A map of the UGRR routes
in Ohio showed a trail in east-
ern Paulding County. Thelen
explained that Ohio was a
free state with over 3,000
miles of trails and at least 23
points of entry along the Ohio
River. This inspired her to
find, purchase and use her an-
tique patterned quilt collec-
tion in a presentation called
Secret Stitches: Coded for
The book Hidden in Plain
Sight contains a code used by
the family of Ozella
Williams. Each quilt pattern
transferred information about
how best to successfully es-
cape north. Ten quilt patterns
were used in the following
code: The monkey wrench
(pattern) turns the wagon
wheel (pattern) toward
Canada on a bears paw trail
(pattern) to the crossroads
(pattern). Once they got to the
crossroads they dug a log
cabin (pattern) on the ground.
Shoofly (pattern) told them to
dress up in cotton and satin
bow ties (pattern) and go to
the cathedral church, get mar-
ried and exchange double
rings. Flying geese (pattern)
stay on a drunkards path
(pattern) and follow the stars
At first reading, one is
struck by the imagery and po-
etic descriptions. But beneath
the language lies a much
deeper, larger story, a story
that reaches back to Africa
and forward to the Carolinas,
connecting African symbols
to familiar quilt patterns, all
tied together with the sounds
of spirituals and the African-
American struggle to escape
the bonds of slavery.
Legend has it that in 1831 a
runaway slave slipped into the
Ohio River with his owner in
hot pursuit. He swam for his
life across the great river while
the other man sought out a boat
to row after him. The slave
landed in Ripley, Ohio, and im-
mediately ran from view. The
owner, giving up his search,
declared the slave had gone
off on an underground rail-
For the safety of all in-
volved, few records were
kept of the numbers and iden-
tities of persons who reached
freedom along the railroad,
but it is estimated that at least
40,000 passed through Ohio.
Area folklore tale: an Under-
ground Railroad safe-house is
still standing on North
Williams Street, Paulding.
Chapter vice president
David Betts called the meet-
ing to order with 15 members
and four guests in attendance.
Jill (Rood) Noyes of
ACRES Land Trust, which
owns over 80 preserves in In-
diana and Paulding County,

OSU-Lima: A good fit for Brady Schroeder
Former Paulding High
School athlete Brady
Schroeder recently completed
his four-year college basket-
ball career and I recently
caught up with the eight-time
letter winner who wore the
maroon and white back in
2008. The energetic student
athlete is attending The Ohio
State University at Lima
where he was a four-year
starter for the Barons and fin-
ished with over 1,000 points.
While playing at Paulding,
the young Schroeder played
for his dad his junior and sen-
ior year but the coaching con-
sistency was much different
once Brady entered college.
His college career started
with a brief stop at Otterbein
University just outside of
Columbus in Westerville.
With basketball being such a
passion for Brady, he wanted
to play as a freshman and
make a contribution to the
It was tough. The team
was pretty much established
and there were probably 20
freshmen trying to make the
team. I realized I wasnt
going to get to play much so
I decided to move on and I
am thankful that I did.
Without missing a beat,
Brady was able to make the
move to Lima and play for
the Barons right away.
We checked it all out and
since I hadnt played in any
games I would be eligible to
play without sitting out, said
Brady. But the coaching
carousel started and after his
freshman season the head
coach left, forcing the team to
adjust to another leader.
His sophomore season, it
would be a new coach and
several new players whom
Brady would need to adjust to
but would end up being his
best year as a Baron.
Our new coach was
Quincy Simpson and I had to
work hard to prove that I
could not only play the game,
but could start. I didnt start
when the season opened but I
continued to work hard using
my quickness and playing
strong defense in practice. By
the fifth or sixth game I was
in the starting line up, said
According to Schroeder,
his sophomore season was a
good year with the team fin-
ishing second in the confer-
ence behind Miami
University at Middletown.
Unfortunately, for Coach
Simpson it would be one and
done and Schroeder would be
looking at his third new head
coach in as many years.
At the close of his sopho-
more year, Schroeder con-
templated leaving and going
to Defiance College or Ohio
Northern. But he was happy
at OSU-Lima and although it
didnt have anything to do
with basketball, Brady was
always considering the finan-
cial cost of his education.
Majoring in business with an
emphasis in family financial
management, Brady is ex-
cited about the idea of getting
his degree from The Ohio
State University and knowing
it will cost much less than
from a private institution.
I think back at the fact that
I could go to OSU-Lima for a
year and it would cost the
same as going to Otterbein
for a quarter.
As a junior and senior
Brady was able to settle in
with former Miller City coach
Nick Pittman who took over
the helm two years ago. The
Barons completed the 2012-
13 season with a record of
just three wins and 27 loses
with all three wins coming in
conference play. One of the
wins came back on Dec. 13
when Schroeder canned a 3-
pointer as time expired to
give the Barons a 79-76 win
over University of Akron at
Wayne. Shooting is proba-
bly my strength. There was a
game where I made six 3-
Schroeder feels that the
team would have done much
better but the Barons lost
their 6-foot-7 center when he
broken his ankle early in the
season. For the year, the
Paulding product, who was
the team captain and the only
senior on the team, averaged
nearly 14 points per game and
nine rebounds.
Also, an avid golfer who
shoots about 75 on the links,
Brady admits that basketball
is his passion and golf is just
something he does. While at
Paulding, Brady was named
first team All-Northwest Con-
ference while still holding the
school record for nine holes
with an impressive 33.
Schroeder followed up his
high school golf credentials
by earning the state runner
player of the year honors fea-
turing individuals from the
Ohio Regional Campus Con-
ference along with several
other small colleges and jun-
ior colleges in Ohio.
Brady hopes to someday be
a coach like his dad, Chuck,
who still teaches at Paulding.
I liked playing for him at
Paulding. He coached for 20
years and he always im-
pressed me with what he

Cooperative selects
new trustees
PAULDING Two incum-
bents were returned to their
seats on the Paulding-Putnam
Electric Cooperative Board of
Trustees during the coopera-
tives 76th annual meeting on
Saturday, March 16, at the co-
operative office.
Re-elected to serve District
2 in Van Wert County was
Ronald Neiswander of Con-
voy, and re-elected to serve
District 4 covering parts of
Paulding and Defiance coun-
ties was Karl Bud Koenig
of Paulding.
Steve McMichael was
named the new trustee for
District 5, which covers por-
tions of Allen County in Indi-
ana. Ronald Ehinger, who
had been serving District 5,
decided not to run for re-elec-
tion and no other candidates
submitted nominating peti-
tions prior to the filing dead-
line. McMichael was
appointed by the board fol-
lowing steps spelled out in
the cooperatives code of reg-
CEO/general manager
George Carter talked about
the Paulding-Putnams mis-
sion statement, saying that
the cooperative will provide
electric rates that are fair and
reasonable. He said Pauld-
ing-Putnams rates are fair
and lower than the state aver-
We are cost based. We
look at the actual cost to pro-
vide service to your home and
base our rates on that cost,
Carter said. We dont add
any profit margin for out-of-
state shareholders.
Carter also talked about
value value for the energy
dollar. He asked the members
present if they felt they re-
ceived a good value for the
money they paid for electric-
ity. Carter compared the aver-
age daily cost of electricity
with various products one
could purchase for the same
price and then asked for vol-
unteers to have their power
disconnected for one day in
exchange for a product for the
same cost. No one was will-
ing to take him up on his
Price is what you pay
value is what you get, Carter
During his address to mem-
bers, board president John
Saxton asked that co-op
members to step forward and
be brave, emulating the pio-
neering members who cre-
ated the cooperative.
We must continue to tell
the younger generations
about the cooperatives. Many
think of us as just another
power company, Saxton
said. You see we have ene-
mies out there today. There
are those who would force us
to use energy sources that
could double or triple your
electric rates.
Saxton asked members to
join ACRE Co-op Owners for
Political Action to fight for
affordable rates and help push
Washington and Columbus in
the right direction.
Secretary-treasurer Gary
Hayden told the meeting that
PPEC strives to control costs
and keep electric bill afford-
able. The total operating ex-
penses increased just over 1.5
percent in 2012 demonstrat-
ing the board and manage-
ments commitment to con-
trolling costs.
Hayden added that the
board remains committed to
improving service by replac-
ing old and outdated electric
lines and aggressively cutting
trees. Improving member re-
liability while controlling
costs is a difficult task, but
one that the cooperative is
committed to achieving, he
George Carter announced
the 2013 scholarship winners
during the meeting. Carrie
Gerding (Kalida High
School) and John Schaub
(Ottawa-Glandorf High
School) earned the first-place
awards. Logan Gable (Ot-
toville High School) and
Emma Scheumann (Heritage
High School) were the sec-
ond-place winners, Jennifer
Leis (Miller City High
School) and Caleb Blanke-
meyer (Vantage Career Center)
were the third-place winners
and Brandi Gerschutz was
named the at-large winner.
Paulding-Putnam also
named the winners of the
Youth Tour to Washington,
D.C. Alexander Horstman
(Ottoville) and Jessica
Schmenk (Miller City) will
represent the cooperative on
this years trip.
The approximately 650
members present at the meet-
ing were welcomed by Pauld-
ing-Putnam employees and
were given a gift bag of prod-
ucts produced by area vendors.
