Payne Chamber watches bricks crumble on ‘Green Awning Project’

PAYNE – The Payne Chamber of Commerce was excited to see its most recent downtown project come to a thrilling conclusion as heavy equip- ment finally brought down a structure in a matter of a few hours Thursday, June 20. “We are very pleased to see the ‘Green Awning Project’ come down safely,” said chamber president Chad Benschneider. “There has been a little confusion on what will go in the newest open lot. The answer is that the first priority the chamber has is to try to use the lot to bring in a new business to our downtown, and in the meanwhile we are talking of possible temporary uses for the lot while we leave the lot up for sale for develop-

ment.” The Antwerp Bank has no plans to purchase this site and they are still developing plans with a contractor for the corner lot, which they plan to start this fall. The Payne Chamber of Commerce would like to again thank businesses and individuals that donated over $26,000 so that this nearly $50,000 project could come to reality. The chamber will need to borrow the remaining amount against the old police station building. The chamber now owns the current police station because of a building swap with the current bank building that it formerly

Paulding pastor plans to undergo extended fast

By DENISE GEBERS Progress Staff Writer

PAULDING – Pastor Dwayne Richardson of the House of Love Ministries is asking the community to support him in prayer as he un- dergoes a 30-day total fast. “I believe the Lord spoke to me and told me to fast,” said Pastor Dwayne on Monday. The pastor senses a need for spiritual break- through personally, in his congregation, and the community at large. He is petitioning God for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, deliver- ance, healing, obedience, peace and financial freedom. “Jesus told his disciples that deliverance of certain kinds comes through fasting and prayer,” said the man of God. Two references in the New Testament are made to this. Matt. 17:21 says, “However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fast- ing.” The second is Mark 9:29, “So He said to them, ‘This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.’” New KJV Noting that over half the people he has min- istered to since serving here have been affect- ed by child abuse and/or incest, he said there are demonic strongholds in this area. “It’s almost like it’s a norm here,” he said.

“That’s a big problem.”

State auditor points out minor problems in Oakwood audit

By BILL SHERRY Correspondent

OAKWOOD – Oakwood Village Council met Monday, June 24. Mayor Erhard “Bud” Henke ad- vised council that Fiscal Officer Susan Barron, Council President Todd Dangler and he had met with the state auditor who is auditing the books. In this preliminary meeting, the state auditor identified numerous situations in which he disagreed with how items were entered into record. These discrepancies ranged from contesting the accounts’ dif- ferent funds in which different transactions were recorded to the

handling of various situations caused by the collapse of the Oakwood Deposit Bank. Three items were corrected at Monday’s meeting as council unan- imously agreed to:

• move $1,095 from the Street Fund to the General Fund (this transaction was from 2009) • move $2,647.41 from the State of Ohio Highway fund to the Street Fund • move $2,825.52 from the Gas Construction Fund to the Natural Gas Fund. There were other minor issues concerning the audit that will be acted on once the audit is final and

released by the auditor. Fire Chief Kenny Thomas plans to travel to Alabama later this week to check out the new fire truck. If the truck is okay, paperwork will be completed and Thomas will drive the truck back to Oakwood. In light of Thomas’ upcoming travel plans, council discussed get- ting a credit card that could be used for travel and other village busi- ness. Barron will check with State Bank. Mayor Henke told council that the sewer and water lines are now installed out to the new Cooper truck wash facility location. The lines will be tested next week in ad-

dition to installing a new hydrant. Mayor Henke also informed council that the grant to renovate and repave South First Street had failed as it did not receive enough points to provide funding. There is not enough money in the village ac- count to complete the project and there are no other grants in the near future. Henke proposed that the vil- lage rework the edges of the street then hire someone to repave it. It was noted by Mayor Henke and Police Chief Mark Figert that the Auglaize River dock facility was getting a lot of use again this year. Figert commented that last Saturday, he counted 14 boat trail-

ers in the parking lot. Mayor Henke announced that the spring cleanup went well and coun- cil decided to have another village cleanup in the fall. Village adminis- trator John Keyes will get a date set up with the Oakwood Boy Scout troop for this fall cleanup day. Council also met earlier in the month in a short meeting and they unanimously adopted Resolution 13-R-06 requesting the Paulding County Auditor to certify to the Village of Oakwood its current tax valuation and dollar amount of tax revenue. The next regular meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. July 8.

Fort Brown bicentennial this Saturday

By NANCY WHITAKER Progress Staff Writer

FORT BROWN – On June 29, Fort Brown will be cele- brating their bicentennial with a ceremony and the dedication of a cement bench. The event is being held to commemorate the days over 200 years ago when soldiers of the War of 1812 served here under one flag. Fort Brown has changed quite a bit in the last few months as they prepare for the event. A split rail fence has been put up along the Little Auglaize by Boy Scout mem- ber, Tristan Knott, as part of his Eagle Scout project. The Oakwood Arbor of the Gleaners Life Insurance Society has also helped with sprucing up the area and the new bench, donated by The Jacob Stemple Chapter Daughters of the War of 1812, will be set in place this week. The cement bench was being made by Homier’s Monu - mental of Defiance. Fort Brown is set on the banks of the confluence of the Auglaize and the Little Auglaize rivers. The fort is still in a quiet, rural setting with both rivers visible from the 1812 monument placed at the site in 1953. The program will begin at 10 a.m. with the presentation of colors, followed by the invoca- tion given by pastor of the Melrose United Methodist Church, Eileen Kochen spar ger. The Pledge of Allegiance will be led by member Charlene Hawk and the American’s Creed by member

The Oakwood Community Band will play and the bene- diction will be given by Pastor

Eric Dailey of Twin Oaks United Methodist Church. “Taps,” played by the Oakwood Community Band, will finish out the program. Those attending the pro- gram at Fort Brown are re- minded to bring their own lawn chairs as there are no seating arrangements at the site. Attendees can also get into the spirit of the event by dress- ing in the era attire. An 1812-style lunch will be available immediately follow- ing at the Oakwood Com - munity Park.

Energy audit at fire station to save Payne Village money

By JOE SHOUSE Correspondent

PAYNE – Payne Village Council met in regular session on Monday, June 24. Council agreed to proceed with the fire station energy audit, passed two operating levy renewal resolutions, and heard a pres- entation concerning the vil- lage’s infrastructure assess- ment. Current Energy Solutions from Ohio City performed a facility energy audit on the fire station to determine electricity savings. It was determined that a savings of $1,012.76 would occur each year using fluores- cent bay fixtures. The initial cost would be $6,077 minus a grid smart rebate of $925 for a total cost of $5,152. A motion by Feasby, sec- onded by Miller to proceed with the audit unanimously passed. Ken Sander and Rachel Latta, from Feller, Finch & Associates located in Maumee, presented council with infor- mation in putting a five-year plan together for the village’s infrastructure. “There are less grants out there for communities to se- cure. More and more, we are seeing communities seeking out low interest loans,” said Latta. The company works with communities to develop five-

year plans to include building and roadway improvements, sidewalk programs, storm water projects, to name a few. “Having a five-year plan al- lows you to be creative, set pri- orities, and maximize your fi- nancial resources,” said Latta. Two resolutions, one for po- lice and one for fire, unani- mously passed. The renewals allow the operating levies for both fire and police, not to ex- ceed the 10-mill limitation to be on the ballot. “These are simply renewals and will not result in any kind of increase,” said Deputy Fiscal Officer Cheryl Halter. In other business:

• Council agreed to contract with Comp Management as their Worker’s Com pen sation representative. • Three trees located in the AEP utility easement near the new cell tower will be trans- planted in one of the village’s parks. • Mike Denning asked council what could be done to re-route the grain truck traffic during the monthly car show. Council will submit a letter to the state along with a alternate route. • The benefit for Chase Holt is scheduled for Saturday, June 29. Several events will take place in the village with the local EMS being present if needed.

The chamber has both the old police station and the former green awning building lot up for sale and welcome inquiries (419-769- 4708) to help develop the new downtown. “The chamber would also like to let the community and its donors know that the chamber has no future plans in the next few years to do


anymore demolition projects, largely due to the amount that has been given over the past two years and we cannot jus- tify a future project without a buyer for the properties,” Benschneider added. “We thank the community for the support in what we hope will encourage business opportu- nities and a better place to live in our small town.”

His vigil will begin Wednesday, June 26 and will come to an end Thursday, July 25. He will be under a doctor’s supervision over the course of the 30 days. Pastor Dwayne said he will be at the church for the dura- tion of his fast. Others may join him there for prayer and to do fasts of their own, as

they feel led of God. Contact

him or his wife, Brenda, at 1- 419-796-8718 or 1-419-796- 8631 to set up a time. House of Love Ministries church is located at 220 N. Williams St. in Paulding. Pastor Dwayne encourages anyone from the community to stop in to undergird his ef- forts with their own. Although Pastor Dwayne has spoken with other pastors in town and has their support, he is unaware of any organ- ized efforts to join him. “We are growing. We’re al- most at a breakthrough,” he concluded. “We are at the point where we now have a need for fasting.”

Summertime is peak time for thunder, lightning storms

Lightning Safety Awareness Week is June 23-29

COLUMBUS – In an annual coordinated ef- fort with the National Weather Service, the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness promotes June 23-29 as Lightning Safety Awareness Week and encourages all Ohioans to know what to do before, during and after severe thunder and lightning storms, and to practice se- vere thunderstorm safety and preparedness throughout the summer. According to the National Weather Service (NWS), to date, there have been seven lightning fatalities this year: two in Florida; two in Illinois; and one each in Louisiana, Missouri and Texas. All were outside; four were in or near bodies of water. A total of 28 people in 17 states died of lightning strikes in 2012, includ- ing an Ohio man who was doing yard work at the time. Although the number of lightning fatalities continues to decrease over the years, lightning strikes continue to be one of the top three storm- related killers in the United States. It is impor- tant to note that lightning injures more people than it kills. The best protection from lightning is to avoid the threat. Performing this simple measure can dramati- cally reduce the chance of severe injury or death during a storm: When thunder roars, go in- doors! Stop outdoor activities and seek shelter immediately. Summertime is peak season for thunderstorm activity in Ohio. Preparedness for thunder- storms – or any severe weather incident – is key. • Be Informed. Know what to do before, during and after severe weather. For thunder and lightning safety tips, click on: • Make a Plan. Develop a disaster plan to respond to all hazards, including thunderstorms and lightning. Sign up for First Aid or CPR courses. Practice disaster plans by conducting safety drills. • Build a Kit. Organize or restock emer- gency supply kits for the home and vehicle to be prepared for any incident. The NWS and Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness also suggest the following lightning safety measures:

Watch for developing thunderstorms – Thunderstorms are most likely to develop on spring or summer days, but can also occur at night and during any season. Listen to local

weather reports on radio or television stations. Know the difference between storm watches and warnings. Purchase a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert that notifies when haz- ardous weather is in or near your area. • Seek shelter before an approaching thunderstorm – Lightning can strike as far as 10 miles away from where it’s raining. If you can hear thunder, you are within striking dis- tance. Seek immediate shelter. Know the 30/30 Lightning Safety Rule: Go indoors if after see- ing lightning you cannot count to 30 before hearing thunder. Stay indoors for 30 minutes after hearing the last clap of thunder. Continue to listen to a NOAA Weather Radio or local TV or radio newscasts for weather updates. • Protect your pets – Outside dog houses are not lightning-safe. Dogs that are chained to trees or wire runners have no protection from lightning. Bring your pets inside during thun- derstorms. • Minimize your risk – Most lightning strikes occur during the summer when people are participating in outdoor recreational activi- ties. At the first clap of thunders, stop outdoor activities and try to find indoor shelter immedi- ately. If swimming, boating or fishing, get away from the water as quickly as possible. Find shel- ter in a substantial building (such as a home, school, office building or shopping center) or a hard-topped vehicle. Picnic shelters, car ports, baseball dugouts and convertible vehicles are not safe shelters during thunder and lightning storms. Do not use electrical equipment. Stay away from water/plumbing sources. Wait at least 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder

before going outside again. • Helping someone struck by lightning – If a person is struck by lightning, call 911 and seek immediate medical attention. A lightning victim does not carry an electrical charge and is safe to touch. Knowing and implementing first aid measures, which include cardiopulmonary re- suscitation (CPR), can help a person struck by lightning survive. Local American Red Cross chapters and fire departments often offer first aid and CPR classes.

The Amish Cook

By: Lovina Eicher

The Amish Cook By: Lovina Eicher

Yesterday was the wedding of nephew Noah and Ruby in northern Indiana. They had a big wedding with lots of friends and family attending from various communities in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Missouri, New York, Wiscon- sin, Kentucky, and possibly more states. I went to help prepare for the wedding on Saturday. We cut up and cleaned 400 pounds of chicken and baked pecan pies. The rhubarb and blueberry pies were baked on Monday. A total of over 90 pies were baked for the wed- ding. On Monday, daughter Eliz- abeth and I, finished sewing our wedding dresses for the wedding. It sure was a relief to get those done. Their menu for the wed- ding noon meal was barbe- cued chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, noodles, dressing, mixed vegetables, lettuce, salad, cottage cheese salad, sliced cheese, home- made bread, butter and straw- berry jam, date pudding, mixed fruit, white angel food cake with strawberry topping, rhubarb, pecan, and blueberry pies. For the evening meal they added ham, strawberries, and ice cream to the menu. They had 16 couples of a boy and girl paired to serve as table- waiters. Three couples were coffee servers. Daughter Eliz-

abeth and Timothy were table-waiters. Each of us cooks were as- signed to different jobs. I had to help slice the loaves of bread and cut the cakes. When our job was finished, there were plenty of dishes to wash. We all had a turn to help serve at one of the meals which was filling all the bowls for the table-waiters to pass out. I had to serve pota- toes for supper. It was nice to see and visit with a lot of our aunts, uncles and cousins we don’t often see. The remaining part of the week will be spent cleaning everything for church serv- ices here again on Sunday. Our house was all cleaned very well before the first services so we will just have to re-clean where needed. The boys are weeding the garden now. The weeds sure are starting to take over. We have been having some nice rains which we appreciate even more since the drought last year. The benches are still stacked up in the basement from the last church services. They will just have to be set up again Friday or Saturday. Daughter Elizabeth was 19 on Friday, June 14. How the years have flown by! Sister Emma and Jacob was married 18 years on Saturday, June 15. Elizabeth was a year old the day before their wedding.

It is nice to have the chil- dren all home from school for the summer. Before we know

it, the seed corn will be ready to de-tassel.

Summer lunch for kids at park

Dear Editor, I just wanted to let the people of Paulding County know about the summer lunch program for kids ages 1-18 at LaFountain Park. The food is very good and there is a program for the kids. Last week our church served the lunch and the li- brary personnel did the pro- gram. Kirk did an outstanding job with the kids. If you are in Paulding, come and visit. All of the kids are welcome. Food is served from 11:30 a.m. until 12:15 p.m. and the program after lunch is 30-40 minutes. There is also a great park for the kids. Thanks, Gerry for a good job.

Bargain Bin a vibrant part of Paulding Hospital

Dear Editor, The Bargain Bin of Pauld- ing County Inc. is a vibrant part the Paulding County Hos- pital. We take your cast offs and resell them at a dis- counted price. All monies are then returned to the Paulding County Hospital. In the past years, since the early 1960s, donations of over $1 million have been given back to the hospital for the physical ther- apy department-rehab depart- ment. The polio epidemic of the late ’50s and ’60s that ran rampant through our county brought a group of volunteers together to see what could be done to help polio patients rehab at our local hospital in- stead of traveling miles for treatments. Since that time, all of the monies from the Bargain Bin are returned to the rehab department for ex- ercise and rehabilitation equipment. Recently I heard a news report that the bins that are showing up around town that are advertising for cloth- ing are questionable. There is no question to where the money goes from the Bar- gain Bin of Paulding

County. There are no paid person- nel, all monies are returned to the hospital and we dis- card only soiled or broken items. On a weekly basis, new items are put on racks and the old items are sent to the Fort Wayne Missions. Thanks to everyone who supports the BB. Hours are Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.- noon. We are located on West Perry Street one block west of the courthouse. Drop offs are every Monday morning, or we do have an enclosed building that you can use for your donations at the back of the building. We have a wish list of

finding a new home. We could be more feasible to the community if we had a big- ger building. Eileen Kochensparger BB secretary

Daughter defends dad

Dear Editor, Over the past month there have been a lot of rumors spread about my father, Tony Zartman that I would like to address, as I am sure many of you would do if a member of your family was in the same situation. One of the most disturbing rumors I have heard so far is that my father sees no harm in behaving cruelly towards animals and has even “drowned a kitten instead of finding it a home.” Over my lifetime, I have seen many animals come into our fam- ily home, and not once have I seen my father mistreat one of them, but instead, I have only seen him act towards them with affection and re- spect. One of our own dogs was adopted, so we know first hand the value and love that an adopted dog can bring to a family. I, myself, am even a vegetarian due to my deep love for all animals that my parents passed on to me. To propose that my dad does not care about the fate of the dogs in the county is a preposterous, untrue state- ment. Have you ever even given a thought to the fact that the new changes could benefit the county and maybe you should give them a chance? I would also like to point out the fact that at the time of the windmill lease sign- ings, my parents only owned one piece of land, which a lease was signed for, termi- nated, and the ground was sold. My grandparents did have more leases signed on their land (not that my dad received any money from them), but they too were ter- minated without the construc- tion of any windmills. I am confused as to why there is still controversy over the windmills considering it is old news and they bring money into the county, is it because your land was not chosen for any leases, or the fact that you do not own any land to be chosen? I would just like to remind everyone that deci-

sions can only be made with a two-thirds vote from the three commissioners, and my father is only one man. Since some people deemed fit to dig even deeper into my father’s past and bring up his involve- ment in the Dallas Lamb Foundation closing the nurs- ing home in Payne, some things need to be clarified about that as well. When they asked my father to join the foundation board, they did so with full knowledge that they were already in poor condition financially with a strong possibility of a future closing. My father readily joined to try to find a solution in any way he could because of his concern for the community and the peo- ple in it. During this whole process, my dad never re- ceived one cent of payment for his service, unlike many of those before him. If my dad was getting rich off of the county this whole time, then why would my mom work three jobs, and my dad work two?

  • I was able to restrain from

correcting the false accusa- tions about my father until his faith and service to God was questioned. Throughout my freshmen year at college, I struggled with a lot of stress and being homesick. My father’s constant re- minder to look to God dur- ing the rough times and the bible versus he texted me on my worst days were the only things that got me through the year. He has constantly pushed my siblings and I to pursue a strong relationship with our heavenly Father and serve him in any way that we could. My whole life my father was always the first to educate me about God’s word and is volun- teered to say the prayer before dinner at almost every func- tion he attends. When people ask me who my biggest influ- ence and role model was for a Christian life, I answer my dad without any hesitation.

Currently, my father is guid- ing my fiancé and I through a class about baptism before he baptizes us on June 29. Those who truly know my father would never doubt his faith, commitment, and service God.

  • I wanted to write this let-

ter to remind those who

know my father, and inform

those that do not, what a lov- ing husband, father, friend, neighbor, and servant he truly is that deserves better than to have petty lies spread about him. I know without a doubt that God is the pilot of my father’s life. Can you say the same about your own? “There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false wit- ness who pours out lies, and a person who stirs up con- flict in the community.” Proverbs 6:16-19

In My Opinion

Dust in the wind

  • I was randomly surfing the Internet the other day when I

came across a question from a major national magazine that

stopped me cold, “When cleaning your home, should you vacuum first, then dust, or dust first and then vacuum? Click here to learn the correct method and dispel the myths.” My brain was having

trouble processing this headline. Is this really a major concern? Are people fretting so much over the correct order of cleaning their homes that they need an educational article on

In My Opinion Mary Beth Weisenberger
In My

the Internet to guide them? Are there folks out there stand- ing, dumbfounded, dust rag in one hand and vacuum in the other, waiting for a green light to proceed appropriately? As a longtime frazzled mom, my first reaction to the vac- uum/dust, dust/vacuum conundrum presented was: “Wait. We are supposed to do both? On the same day?” My dilemma has always been whether I should dust or vacuum. Or, more realistically, whether I should attempt to clean anything or just close my eyes to the growing herd of dust bunnies, grab a bag of Doritos and convince my kids it was a healthy supper as I taxied them to and from unending

games, practices and events.

  • I was never the type to be concerned over which house-

cleaning chore I should do first. I was more the type to close

off rooms and hope and pray no one came to visit. Our new church pastor showed up once, and I had to move home- work, approximately 13 pairs of shoes and, yes, a bag of Doritos in order for him to sit on the couch. (I desperately hoped he wouldn’t offer to play the piano in the corner, be- cause I knew the keys sported impressive layers of dust. I began to concoct an excuse that the dust was really an exotic collection of volcanic ash, but I couldn’t bring myself to fib to a pastor.) My second reaction was, “People, we have lost our minds.” I like a clean house, don’t get me wrong. But nowa- days, it seems the focus on super-sanitizing and germ-proof- ing everything we see and touch, and worrying over how much to dust and vacuum, has gone a tad overboard. In fact, a study released last year and published in the “Journal of Al- lergy and Clinical Immunology” surmised that a too-clean environment is not good for your health. This theory, called the “hygiene hypothesis,” holds that when exposure to para- sites, bacteria, and viruses is limited early in life, children face a greater chance of having allergies, asthma, and other autoimmune diseases during adulthood. Even so, I couldn’t help clicking on the link for the an- swer. I discovered it is much better to dust first and then vac- uum, so one can sweep up any residue released through dusting. What a relief! Now, I can confidently swipe away those Doritos crumbs from my coffee table, knowing that I can simply vacuum them later and that I will definitely not have an asthma attack when I do it.

Rep. Burkley announces passage of agricultural commodity revisions

COLUMBUS – State Representative Tony Burkley (R- Payne) has announced that the Ohio House of Representatives on Wednesday passed Senate Bill 66, which revises the state’s Agricultural Commodity Handlers Law. Among the key provisions in the bill is the removal of barley, oats, rye, grain sorghum, sunflower and speltz from the list of agricultural commodities regulated under the Agricultural Commodity Handlers Law. SB 66 retains the regulation of corn, soybeans, wheat and other crops designated by the Di- rector of Agriculture. Following the bill’s passage, Rep. Burkley released the fol- lowing statement:

“As a legislator with a predominately rural district, I am pleased with today’s vote and was happy to co-sponsor it. With all interested parties working together, our agriculture industry will truly benefit from this legislation. I thank my counterpart, Senator Cliff Hite, for his hard work on this issue and look for- ward to Governor Kasich signing it into law.”

Golfers set record at Pleasant Valley GC

PAYNE – Devon Snyder and Derek Langmeyer had the day off work on June 19. They both love playing golf at Pleasant Valley Golf Course in Payne and decided to spend the day there. They arrived at the course at 7 a.m. and left at 9:15 p.m. after having played 100 holes of golf. Pleasant Valley is a nine- hole course so this meant they had to play 11 rounds plus one hole, setting a record at Pleasant Valley. They each took about 430 strokes for said holes, having four rounds of 36 or better. The high round was 45 and the low round was 32. Needless to say, they were “golfed out” when they fin- ished! In the future, they just might try to play 200 holes in one day. Good luck, guys!

A Penny For Your Thoughts.... By: Nancy Wh itaker
A Penny For
Your Thoughts....
By: Nancy Wh itaker


All through our lives we have a series of “firsts.” First happenings in our life can make us excited, lonely, sad, joyful, happy or even afraid.

Some of them we like to re- member, others we want to forget.

  • I remember the first time I

rode a bicycle. I was nervous, scared and excited. I fell off that bike many times and had a lot of scraped knees, but was so happy when I could fi- nally ride that bike up and down our road. One of my “first” memo- ries was when I was 3 years old and sang a song in church. I was happy and proud, but a little apprehen- sive. However, I went up to the platform and sang the song, “Hand In Hand With Jesus.” That “first” I will never forget. Remember your first day of school? I remember having a few new clothes, a yellow tablet, pencil and a box of eight crayons. It was the first time I had been away from my mom

any length of time, so it was a happy but frightening “first.”

  • I also remember when each

of my kids had their first day of

school. I cried for each one as they boarded the school bus. Going back to the 1960s, I think about the first TV set we ever had. It was a small screen, black and white, but oh, we were so proud to have it. Do you remember when you drove a car for the first time? When we were 16 years old, we could get a driver’s permit. Driver’s education was taught as part of our daily curriculum. I always felt sorry for the teacher, because more than one of us gave him many frighten- ing moments as we took our “first” time behind the wheel. Then there are really impor- tant events when you really

want to be “first.” We always had to line up in school by al-

phabetical order. My last name started with a “W” so I was al- ways close to the end of the line. I always said I was going to marry someone whose name began with A, so if we ever had to line up again, alphabetically,

  • I would be one of the first. (I married another W.)

Then there are first dates. On my very first date, my mom stood inside by the porch light when I got home and flipped

the porch light off and on until

  • I came in. I was embarrassed,

but I learned “first” hand to come in before she turned on the light. When thinking of the word “first” I think of the first day of summer, the first robin, the first fish we catch, the “first” ripe tomato from the garden, and the “first” firefly at night. In the fall it is the “first frost and in winter the “first” snow- fall. I was a little older when I flew in an airplane for the “first” time. That flight was filled with turbulent weather, lightning, and the powerful wind blew the air craft around.

To say the least, it was an un- forgettable “first” flight. One of the “firsts” I was al- ways proud of was my first job. I hand washed big pots and pans at the local hospital. I was only 15, so it was no problem to walk quite a ways to earn that 60 cents per hour. I felt like

a rich girl. I like to think of all the firsts, not just in the past, but what else I may experience in the fu- ture as a “first.” There are a lot of places I haven’t seen, differ- ent foods I haven’t tried, many

songs I haven’t sung and many dreams I have not dreamed. Whether we are at home, at school, at work or at church, there are many firsts just wait- ing to happen. One thing I hate to think about are those people who think there will never be any more firsts in their lives. Hope- fully, we will continue to have a series of “firsts” all of our lives until we can honestly say, “Been there. Done that.” Do you recall any “firsts” in your life? Do you expect more firsts? Let me know and I’ll give you a Penny For Your Thoughts.

PAULDING – There’s never a dull moment in Ryan Mapes’ activities for a day. Mapes now is overseeing 276 miles of ditches that drain over 200,000 acres in agriculturally productive Paulding County. Previously Tim Franklin serviced as county ditch su- pervisor, Franklin retired ear- lier in the spring after many years of service to the county ditch system; and Mapes, who had worked under Franklin for three years, was hired to take over the posi- tion. In addition to ditches con- tained within the county, ditch maintenance also main- tains joint county ditches in Defiance, Putnam and Van Wert counties. Paulding County officials met earlier this week with commission- ers from those counties to de- termine 2014 assessments for the ditches. Blue Creek is the county’s largest ditch, with 37.2 miles of drainage between Van Wert and Paulding counties. “This (Blue Creek) is a very big watershed that is shared between our county and Van Wert County,” said Mapes. “It requires a lot of maintenance.” It was constructed for a price around $580,000 and its assessment varies year to year depending on maintenance required. County commissioners in- dicated that there are cur- rently 109 ditches under maintenance in the county. Mapes said that his respon- sibilities as ditch maintenance supervisor is encompassed into many areas. The admin- istration is a key part of or- ganization for continual changes of ownership and as- sessments. The planning and inspection portion of ditch maintenance, helps with the year-to-year work load and efficiency to ensure the work is completed. “In the field we have a va- riety of tasks to maintain, in- cluding the control of invasive and noxious vegeta-

tion. We take a look at the types of weeds and brush growing in the ditches and how to control them,” Mapes said. “We also have to keep in mind what advantages vegeta- tion brings to ditch structure. When spraying applications are not an option we can use mechanical methods such as mowers and chain saws.” Ditches also need to be maintained structurally which may require repairs on ditch banks due to erosion, sand silt bar removal, and bottom dipouts. Mapes said that ditch maintenance is extensive and critical to agriculture in Paulding County because of the area’s connection origi- nally to The Great Black Swamp past and topography of the land. He noted that naturally, the county once was covered by forest and maintained a

swamp floor. In order to con- vert it into usable land, it was necessary to remove trees and drain the wetlands. Land drainage is main- tained by underground drains, tile and other means to help maintain the capacity of runoff from average rains in the area. “We are very fortunate to have some significant water- sheds in the area such as the Maumee River and Auglaize River,” said Mapes. “We also have a definite direction of water flow. It runs toward the northeast due to the fall of the land. “I like to be outdoors; I like fishing and sunshine,” said Mapes. “I enjoy learning the history of Paulding County, when it comes to drainage and having the opportunity to feed in ideas about how to improve things.”

Due to unexpected marketing changes, glass recycling will no longer be offered through the WMEA (Waste Management Education Aware- ness) program. The program provides drop off sites through- out the county. Those sites are: the first Saturday of each month at Grover Hill, Haviland, and Scott; the second Saturday at Melrose, Oak- wood, and Junction; the third Saturday at Payne, Briceton, and Latty.

Are there black bears in Ohio?

By Mark Holtsberry Education specialist Paulding SWCD

The black bear is native to Ohio and on the

state’s endangered species list. All black bears in Ohio are protected by state law. Black bears were considered extirpated from Ohio in the 1850s. The Native American population of that time period used the black bear for food, shelter, bedding, weapons and utensils. In other words, nothing went to waste. But as the years passed new laws and regu- lations on bear hunting helped to bring back the black bear’s population. In 2012, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources received 224 sightings and 93 of those sightings were confirmed. Twenty-one counties had confirmed sightings in 2012 and each year the number of sightings and confir- mations seem to grow in numbers. Portage County in northeast Ohio, has had the most sightings, followed by Trumbull, Ashtabula, Geauga and Mahoning. But, along with the confirmed sightings, nuisance reports

followed. In 2012, 39 nuisance reports were filed and 17 were confirmed as bear nuisance. Nuisance or destructive behavior includes damage to bird feeders, bee hives and garbage containers. In Ohio, black bears were sighted during every month with 80 percent of the sightings taking place during May-September. Black bears fear people and do not attack or kill chil- dren or pets, as long as it is given its space and not cornered. (This is according to the ODNR.) However, it is suggested that you enjoy watching them from a distance. Will you see a black bear at the Nature Center park or on the trails? Probably not, but since 1993, bears have been reported in 59 and con- firmed in 50 of Ohio’s 88 counties. This has all been since 1993, when the wildlife division began keeping formal records of observations. Enjoy your walk and tour of the Black Swamp Nature park. Please help raise the rest of the money needed for the resurfacing paving project at the park. For more information, you may call 419-399-

QUESTION: My mother- in-law won’t leave us alone. My husband and I were just married a few months ago, and she comes by all the time and calls constantly. My husband is afraid to talk to her because he does- n’t want to make her mad. I’m so disappointed in him and feel like he should be handling this. Do you have any advice?

JIM: Your situation is trou- bling because it involves two issues: 1) your mother-in- law’s interference, and 2) the wedge that this has created between you and your hus- band. We’d suggest that it’s critical to deal with the sec- ond issue before tackling the first. More than anything, you and your husband need to be “on the same team” here. As a couple, you can’t expect to enforce appropriate bound- aries with his mom while you’re simultaneously at odds with one another. So spend some time alone together and make sure you can agree on an appropriate plan of action. You’re right; the issue is with his mom and he needs to take the lead in addressing it. If he can’t find the courage to do that, we’d suggest that you seek the assistance of an ex- perienced family therapist. Contact Focus on the Family for a free consultation and a referral to a qualified coun- selor in your area. Once you and your hus- band are prepared to operate as a united front, our counsel- ing team suggests that you sit down with his mom and lov- ingly but firmly let her know that her constant interference is not healthy, for her or for your marriage. Again, your husband should take the lead in this conversa- tion. He should reassure her

of your mutual love and re- spect for her, but also be firm about keeping healthy bound- aries in place.

QUESTION: My husband was just offered a job in an- other state. Due to the econ- omy, we’re struggling financially. I’ve tried to find a job in the same area, but nothing has opened up. The only solution we can come up with is to live separately

for a while until one of us can find a job where the other person is living. But I’m afraid that we’ll grow apart. How we can remain close during this transition? I know military families face this all the time. DR. GREG SMALLEY, Executive Director of Mar- riage and Family Forma- tion: Your analogy to military families is a good one, al- though at least military fami- lies usually have a set date when the tour of duty ends. Your “reunification date” re- mains up in the air. Author Erin Prater has written extensively on the challenges couples face dur- ing times when they have no choice but to live apart. Here are a few of her suggestions for helping your marriage thrive during this period:

• Assemble a support net- work of same-gender friends and married couples. Enjoy regular fellowship and ac- countability with this group. • Develop a new interest. Audit a college class, join a book club, start exercising, etc. • Keep a journal of your daily activities, challenges, funny stories, etc. and then share it with your spouse when you talk. • Send “care packages” to one another. • Pen an old-fashioned love letter. Don’t use it to discuss

the budget and other busi- ness. Write solely for the pur- pose of conveying your love. • Have a pizza or takeout delivered to your spouse. • Call your spouse when you know he’ll be unavail- able and leave a sweet voice- mail. He’ll be able to play it over and over when he misses you. For more tips and ideas, visit the Marriage section of our website at www.focuson- Best wishes to you and your husband!

‘Winning the Battle for a Generation’

By Rick Jones exec. director, Defiance Area Youth for Christ

Have you heard the clock ticking? When I was in the fourth grade, our teacher, Mrs. Heath, challenged all of us to see how long we could hold our breath. I remember holding my breath, watching the second hand on the clock go around, one minute, then two and then I gasped for air. I will always remember what Mrs. Heath said next; “Now, that’s all done and for all those seconds you held your breath, they are also gone, never to return. Please be very careful how you spend your time.” Someone who came to understand the eternal- ity of each moment was UCLA Philosophy Pro- fessor, Dallas Willard. On May 8, 2013, Dallas Willard died. This great thinker, who taught phi- losophy at The University of Southern California for nearly a half-century, lost his mother when he was just two years of age. The final words she spoke to her husband as she was dying were, “Keep eternity before the children.”

In many ways that defined Dallas Willard’s life, and it addresses the central responsibility of every father and parent. We will help our chil- dren with many tasks throughout the various sea- sons of life, but nothing compares to the importance of keeping eternity’s reality ever be- fore our children (With God: Give &Take, John Ortberg, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church,


There is something we all can learn, some- thing we must learn, before it’s too late. God has placed an eternal clock in our hearts and minds

to remind us that time is precious, time is short. The scriptures remind us… Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NASB), “He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart…” Let’s endeavor to listen to the ticking of the clock and consider then how we must live.

Hospital employees lose 334 pounds using obesity program

By BILL SHERRY Correspondent

The Paulding County Hospital (PCH) Board of Trustees met June 13. The board heard Dr. Mahtab Ahmed’s medical obesity pilot program has been completed with 13 hospital em- ployees undergoing a 12-week weight loss program under his direction.

The hospital employee group lost a total of 334 pounds in the program. The maximum weight loss for an in- dividual was 41 pounds with the min- imum weight loss by an individual being 20 pounds. The average weight loss was 26 pounds per participant or 12 percent of the total body weight. Dr. Ahmed is now scheduling weight loss patients from the community. Dr. Ahmed’s new office is located on the south side of the PCH campus, across from the ER drive up entrance. For more information please call 419-399-

Several services were offered to the public, including discounted lab tests along with free dexascan heel scans for osteoporosis along with displays from various service agencies in the area. Over 520 people were drawn for blood tests while many others had free heel screens for osteoporosis. To make it more convenient for pa- tients, next year the format of the health fair will change with a Monday through Saturday schedule so that peo- ple can come at their convenience for the discounted blood tests. Chief Executive Officer Gary Ad- kins reported that for the month of April, PCH realized a gain of $12,029 with a year-to-date gain of $40,858. The 2012 audited financial statement was submitted for approval to the state auditor’s office. Adkins also reported that Represen- tative Barb Sears from Toledo has in-

continue to educate members of the Ohio State Senate and House of Rep- resentatives on the importance of Med- icaid for uninsured Ohioans. The quality improvement committee was presented with the quarterly qual- ity improvement report, the legal com- pliance audit for first quarter 2013, and the first quarter patient satisfaction re- port. Chief Operating Officer Randy Ruge reported that PCH has received the ankle brachial index equipment and the staff has been trained in its use. This equipment will help diagnose pe- ripheral artery disease. Ruge also told the board that the res- piratory department has received equipment for home sleep studies. The staff has been trained in using this new equipment and sleep studies can now be scheduled at home. The next meeting is scheduled for 6:45 p.m. July 11 in the hospital con- ference room. This is one week later than the normal meeting date due to Fourth of July holiday.

A memorial was recently donated to the Community Health Professionals Hospice of Paulding in memory of Darrold Scott. Paula Stout, CHP nurse (center) accepted the memorial from Leota Scott (left), wife of Darrold Scott, and Leota’s daughter, Patty Rangel. Not pictured are Darrold’s five children, Brian Lee Scott, Darrold Lee Scott Jr., Pamela Marie Scott, Amy S. Scott and Char- lene L. Pastor.

What does that mean?

There are terms that are unique to every hobby, craft, profession, and interest, and unless you’re a part of that particular group, or you’re new to it, it can be confusing. Gardening is no different. Once you’ve got a little expe- rience under your belt, you’ll know the basics and as time goes on, you’ll continue to learn. One of the first things a be- ginning gardener learns is the difference between an annual, biennial, and a perennial. An annual has a life cycle of just one year and a perennial is a plant that lives for two years or more (usually more). De- pending on the plant, a peren- nial has the potential to live for decades, yet some only have a natural life of a few




you’ve had a perennial that has done well in your garden for a long time and it up and dies for seemingly no reason, it may be that it succumbed to natural causes or old age. A biennial is a plant with an interesting life cycle. Most live only two years, but it’s how they live those years that is different from other plants. The first year, they concen- trate their growth on leaves, stem, and roots; the second year they bloom, and when that year comes to a close in fall, they die. Unless you’ve allowed the plant to self-seed, you’re going to need to re- plant in the third year. Common biennials are hol- lyhocks, foxgloves, parsley, Sweet William, forget-me- nots and stock. Biennials that are grown only for their veg- etative parts may be planted as annuals, such as beets and Brussels sprouts. If you grow tomatoes, you know that you can plant ei- ther determinate or indetermi- nate varieties. What’s the difference? A determinate tomato plant will only grow to a certain height (around four feet) and will only pro- duce tomatoes for a short time period, usually about two weeks. These are com- monly called bush tomatoes and they can generally be grown in containers. Exam- ples of determinate tomatoes

are Roma and Rutgers. Indeterminate tomato plants, or vining tomatoes, will continue to grow and will produce fruit throughout the growing season. They require staking or caging, as they can reach higher than 10 feet, but typically slow down their growth at around six feet in height. Most heirlooms and cherry tomatoes are indeter- minate. Just to settle the question about whether a tomato is a vegetable or a fruit; biologi- cally, it’s a fruit, but the U.S. Supreme Court ruled it a veg- etable in the case of Nix vs. Heddon in 1893, mainly be- cause its use is more that of a vegetable. But, you’ll not be surprised to find out that the court case was all about money. At that time, vegeta- bles were subject to an import tax and fruits were not. Now, about the melons. If you’re like me, I always thought that a cantaloupe and a muskmelon were the same

thing with different names. Yes and no. Cantaloupe actu- ally refers to two different

types of muskmelon. But for

simplicity’s sake, what is commonly known as a can- taloupe is a smooth-skinned fruit varying in color from pale green to light beige, sometimes with warts and

sometimes with faint ribs. A muskmelon has that familiar beige rough netted skin, with ribs. The yummy Indiana mel- ons we eat are muskmelons. You may find cantaloupes in your grocery, but you’re more likely to find them at farmer’s markets and roadside stands, because most of them have relatively tender skins that don’t transport well. I can attest to this, having grown Charentais melons for several years. They’re deli- ciously sweet, but their pale green skins bruise fairly eas- ily. Part of the fun of doing anything is learning these lit- tle idiosyncrasies. And thank- fully, gardening is full of them, which keeps us all on our toes and our minds sharp

for as long as we dig in the dirt. Gardening boring? Never!

PARK CONSTRUCTION UNDER WAY – Construction crews on Paulding streets have been an obvious sight recently as the sewer separation project continues, but another project has gotten under way in the meantime. Concrete has been poured for walkways and gathering areas in the new Herb Monroe Community Park on the northeast corner of the square.

CIC receives grant

ANTWERP – The Antwerp Community Improvement Corpo- ration (CIC) received a $6,000 grant from American Electric Power to employ Larry Dillin Associates for the year 2013. Other local organizations also contributed financially to the effort to improve the business and quality of life in Antwerp. They are:

the Village of Antwerp, $4,000; the ACDC of Antwerp, $1,800; the Antwerp Chamber, $200 and the Antwerp CIC, $6,000. Dillin is a site selection/project development professional to help in the design and promotion of 64 acres on the southeast part of Antwerp at the US 24/49 interchange. Dillin emphasizes the prac- tice of developing the entire community for economic development and several committees have been created to help in this process. “We very much appreciate the support of AEP Ohio for this sup- port,” said Randy Derck, president of the Antwerp CIC. “This proj- ect will support economic development efforts in Antwerp and Paulding County.” AEP’s grant program emphasizes leveraging additional funds from other sources and demonstrating joint participation from more than one group. AEP Ohio has offered grants to local economic development or- ganizations since 2005. AEP Ohio serves nearly 1.5 million cus- tomers in Ohio and northern West Virginia.

We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse

By NANCY WHITAKER Progress Staff Writer

There is a right way to fly your flag. As we pay

tribute to our United States of America on July 4,

let us fly our flags with the dignity our flag de- serves. Here are some tips that you may or may not know in regards to displaying Old Glory:

• Display the flag only between sunrise and sunset on buildings and stationary flagstaffs. The flag may be displayed for 24 hours if illuminated in darkness. • Do not display the flag in inclement weather. Whether displaying the flag vertically or horizon- tally, make sure the canton of stars is visible on the upper left-hand side. • Do not let the flag touch the ground. • An unusable flag that is damaged and worn and can no longer be displayed should be de- stroyed in a dignified way by burning. • When not on display, the flag should be re- spectfully folded into a triangle, symbolizing the tricorn hats worn by colonial soldiers in the Rev- olutionary War.

Folding the Flag

The flag is folded 13 times to symbolize the original 13 colonies, but there is much more to the flag folding. The first fold of our flag is a symbol of life. The second fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life. The third fold is made in honor and remem- brance of the veterans departing our ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of our country to attain peace throughout the world. The fourth fold represents our weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace as well as in time of war for His divine guidance. The fifth fold is a tribute to our country, for in the words of Stephen Decaur, “Our country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong.” The sixth fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with our hearts that, “We pledge allegiance to the

flag of the United States Of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.” The seventh fold is a tribute to our Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed Forces that we protect our country and our flag against all her en- emies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of our republic. The eighth fold is a tribute to the one who en- tered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day. The ninth fold is a tribute to womanhood, and mothers. For it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded. The 10th fold is a tribute to the fathers, for they, too, have given their sons and daughters for the defense of our country since they were first born. The 11th fold represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies in the Hebrews’ eyes, the God of Abra- ham, Isaac and Jacob. The 12th fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in the Christians’ eyes, God the Fa- ther, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The 13th fold, or when the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost reminding us of our nation’s motto, “In God We Trust.” After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington, and the sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for us the rights, privileges and freedoms we enjoy today. There are some traditions and ways of doing things that have deep meaning. In the future, you’ll see flags folded and now you will know why. Do you know that at military funerals, the 21- gun salute actually stands for the sum of the num- bers in the year 1776?
