Montpeliers Storrer Park May Soon West Unitys Colleen Bell Wins
See New Shelter & Other Improvements Amazing Girl & Miss Pageant
By T.J. Hug

THE VILLAGE REPORTER

Trying on clothes is
fun for most girls, but for
Colleen Bell, its training.
Bell, the daughter of
Jim and Kristy Bell, also
practiced mock interviews
and attended a modeling
seminar in preparation.
It all paid off, though, as
she was crowned Miss
Ohio Amazing Junior
Teen on August 24 for the
year 2014.
It was in the Maumee
Bay State Lodge, located
within
the
Maumee
city limits, that Bell
earned her title. An
affiliate of the Thelma

Oraganization
for Youth Advancement,
The Amazing Girl and
Miss Pageant in Ohio

stops in Montpelier and greeting the
students as they arrive to school along
with helping to supervise the students
during before school breakfast.
One of the Community of Faith
leaders, Pastor Paul Gruetter of
St. Johns Lutheran church, notes
that the two bus stops previously
mentioned are located at New
Beginnings Church on the corner of
Broad and Lawrence and the other
is located at Storrer Park which is
between S. Platt and S. Pleasant.
Pastor Ben Harris of House of
Prayer Church stated that the bus
stop at New Beginnings Church
has approximately 100 students
and the bus stop at Storrer Park
has approximately 160 students.
At New Beginnings Church there is
an awning on the west side of the
building where students can wait
for their buses during inclement

this and after some brain storming


came up with the idea of raising the
funds and building a shelter house
just northeast of where the buses
pick students up at Storrer Park. The
proposed project is estimated to cost
around $20,000. The shelter house is
designed to be a 20 x 40 shelter with
a peaked roof which will be located
near the southeast corner closest to
S. Pleasant Street.
Though some of the funds have
been raised there is still a good portion
that is yet needed in order for this
proposed shelter to become a reality.
The shelter house will not only be a
tremendous blessing to the students
waiting for their buses but it will also
serve the entire Montpelier community
by providing a place for families to
take a picnic break while youngsters
enjoy the exciting playground area
Storrer Park provides. Monetary
donations are still needed to make
this shelter a reality. If you would
like to help by providing a donation
please contact Pastor
David Tilly of the First
Presbyterian Church at
419.485.3339.
The Community of
Faith is currently looking
for more volunteers to
aid in various tasks. If
you are interested in
being a volunteer please

came from Jim Eagleson.
Riding for the Make a Wish
Foundation, and later
for the independently as
the Wish Run, Eagleson
created and put together
a similar event for years.
It was when he decided to
give up the route that the
Connors, inspired by the
plan, took over the model.
They just needed to
find a cause worth riding
for.
So, sitting on their
porch Mike and Kari made
their choice; Veterans.
Mike himself is a vet,
serving his country for
four and a half years as a
2nd Marine. He traveled
from Japan to the Middle
East during his time in
the military, and even
took part in Operation
Desert Storm.
With the purpose in
place, the Connors next
needed to pick a route.
The Deshler natives chose
to begin their run there,
with stops scheduled at
American Legion Posts in
Wauseon, Pioneer, Bryan,
Defiance, and back to
Deshler. The run totaled
152 miles, according to
Connors odometer.
There were about 185
riders participating in the

run. Connors was happy


with the turnout.
We were very pleased.
He proclaimed.
Single riders paid $15
to ride, and couples paid
$20. These fees, along
with donations collected
along the way, will go
toward helping veterans
returning
home
from
active duty.
So how will this money
help
returning
vets?
Connors wants to help
with the smaller details of
their lives.
The VA can only take
them so far.
R.A.W. aims to assist
these
warriors
with
things like rent money,
car repairs, finding a job,
and, in one case, building
a wheelchair ramp.
Every case is different
according to Connors.
These
cases
are
decided
upon
by
a
committee
of
R.A.W.
members. The Connors
were careful with how
they put said committee
together, picking veterans
from
various
service
periods
ranging
from
Vietnam Vets to current
members of the National
Guard.
Connors explained the

reasoning behind this


practice.
We wanted to get a
broad perspective of what
it was like to come home
(from service).
That broad perspective
is the key to a successful
grass roots campaign,
which explains the why
R.A.W. is doing so well.
Were off to a heck of a
start. Connors admitted.
After
their
initial
kickoff event last year,
R.A.W. has been active
in the community. They
hosted a shoot-off in
Deshler, where veterans
competed against each
other and have a little
fun, as Connors put it.
Theyve also taken part
in the Kunkle Parade,
and were present in
Montpelier to celebrate
the 50th anniversary of
the Vietnam War.
Anyone seeking more
information on the run
or the organization as a
whole can check out their
website, www.RAWRun.
org, which has been up
for a little over a month
and will be updated
monthly.
Next, Connors hopes
to organize a barbeque
between
Deshler
barbequers
Outlaw
Attitude BBQ and Tinys
BBQ within the next year.
The next R.A.W. Run is
scheduled to take place
on August 22 of 2015.
For now, though, the
memory of this run is still
a fond one.
It was a lot of fun.
Certainly more fun
than sitting on their
porch, to be sure.

Vacation Bible School At Montpelier Church


Of Christ Raises Funds For Shelter House
AMERICAN MUSCLE ... A classic Ford Mustang on display.
By T.J. Hug
THE VILLAGE REPORTER
It was Spencer Malones first go at
running the Montpelier Cruise-In.
For the past two years hes been
working with Rick Warner to put
the show on twice a month. At this
particular cruise-in, however, marked
the first time in that span in which
Warner was strictly a participant.
Warner had his Mercury 100 on
display at the event, a vehicle into which
hes put a lot of work. The Canada-made
truck has been reworked to handle like a
modern truck, much different from how
it used to drive, according to Warner.
It drove like a farm truck.
The engine and interior have also
been entirely redone by Warner, an
amazing feat considering he acquired
the truck just three years ago. Hes put
2,000 miles on it since then; 300 last
year and 1,700 this year.
This year celebrates the 50th
anniversary of Mustang, and the many
variations of the muscle car were on
display at the cruise-in.

It was a different Ford that stole the


show, however.
A 1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner
Retractable was brought to the event by
Jerry Hawkins, of Edon. Convertibles
of the 50s had a lot of tricky wiring
associated with them, and Hawkins
knowledge on the systems is greatly
revered in the area.
Hes kind of the resident expert
on these things. Malone praised. If
anyone has a problem, they go to him.
In general, Fords from the 1950s are
designed to look like rockets, and the
Galaxie is no exception. Additionally,
there were a few other 50s Fords present
at the cruise-in, and they all exhibited
this trend.
Spencer Malone is well aware of all
of this, and so much more about the
vehicles present at his cruise-in. Falling
in love with cars at the age of two, hes a
walking automobile encyclopedia.
The Montpelier Cruise-In is in great
hands for the future.

Great news!! Boy Scouts are back in
West Unity after 15 years of being gone.
The West Unity Boy Scout Troop 669
have had a lot of things going on these
last 2 years. We have just attended
our second year at Boy Scout camp at
Camp Lakota in Defiance Ohio. The
boys participated in many activities
such as a climbing tower, archery, rifle
shooting, swimming, boating on the
lake, and many other merit badges to
work towards the rank of Eagle.
Two of our young men worked on staff
for two weeks as councilors in training
and are looking forward to working on
staff full time next summer. These same
young men also attended NYLT which is
National Youth Leadership Training at

Camp Lakota. They learned leadership


skills on how to lead the troop in the
coming years and how to guide and
teach the younger scouts as well as the
new ones coming into the troop.
The Boy Scout Troop is actively
involved with the West Unity Cub
Scout Pack. They help out at all events
including the Raingutter Regatta, Space
race, and the Pinewood Derby. They also
helped judge the cakes at the annual
Blue and Gold Banquet.
If any boy is interested in Cub scouts
or Boy scouts please contact Brad

By: Chelsie Firestone
THE VILLAGE REPORTER
Members of the West Unity Village
Council opened their regularly scheduled
meeting by welcoming Alan Bennett of the
Chamber of Commerce, who was on hand
to update Council about upcoming events
to be held by the Chamber.
This years Fall Fest will be held on
October 11, which is about two weeks
earlier than the event has been held in
the past. Bennett explained that the
change was made in an attempt to have
fewer conflicts with the weather as well
as to provide less conflict with Trick or
Treat in the Village. Council later tabled
a discussion on when to schedule Trick
or Treat within the Village as they are
waiting on more information regarding
other villages Trick or Treat schedules
as well as availability of the mounted
deputies.
The Fall Fest will include a pancake
breakfast and then a chili cook off to
begin around lunch time. The annual
auction will also be held again this year.
Bennett also informed Council that the
Chambers Annual Banquet will be held
on November 5 and encouraged anyone
interested in taking an active roll on
council to step forward as the Chamber
will be losing two members at the end of
the year.
Village
Administrator
Ric
Beals
reported that the recently purchased
used Dura-Patcher has already seen
extensive use and has been a great asset
to the Village. An agreement with Brady
Township to share the cost of purchase
and maintenance of the unit is in the
works.
Beals also informed council that, due
to the large response to the sidewalk
letters that were sent out, there has been
a lot of repair done but that repair has
come with the price of needing to delay
the purchase of new trees until next
spring. Beals explained that, with the dry

conditions over the summer, the delay


was probably the best move for the Village
anyway.
Also included in Beals report was
that the estimate from Woolace Electric
to install a pole and re-assemble a used
tornado siren purchased by the Village
has come in at $6300. Beals noted
that Woolace Electric had originally
dismantled the siren.
During her report, Mayor Peggy
Bernath read a card thanking the
Village, particularly the West Unity
Police Department, for their assistance
during the first annual Kaleb McLaughlin
Memorial Ride. The next ride, which
raises awareness about organ donation,
is scheduled for July 11, 2015.
Other matters brought before and
heard by council included:
~A legislative matter in which Council
approved the submission of an application
for a 2015 grant to the Ohio Public Works
Commission. The grant would be applied
towards the east portion of the East
Jackson Street water line project.
~That the Hilltop School Board has
approved the contract for Security
Resource Officer provided by the Village.
~Learning that if a lighting project is
desired in 2015 that the project will need
to be budgeted through the General Fund.
~The hearing of an update that Alert86
is now up and running and that residents
can sign up at www.alert86.com or
through the link on the Villages website.
~Learning that the Villages sewer
mapping project will hopefully be
completed before winter.
~Hearing that the CCNO crew has
been painting fire hydrants.
~Noting that work continues to be
done at the Kissell Building.
The next meeting of the West Unity
Village Council will be held on Thursday
September 11 at 7:30 PM in council
chambers.

Millcreek-West Unity Schools is in


the beginning stages of creating a Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame.
The purpose of the Millcreek-West
Unity Schools Distinguished Alumni
Hall of Fame is to recognize and honor
Millcreek-West Unity School graduates
or alumni* (*alumni is defined as an attendee of Millcreek-West Unity School),
which may include nominees from
pre-consolidation schools, who have
achieved significant success in their
chosen career fields, and to provide outstanding role models for the students
in the Millcreek-West Unity School District.
The core committee consists of five
voting members. In an attempt to keep
the group diverse, consideration of
membership will include, but not be
limited to, individuals with knowledge
of Agribusiness, the Arts and Sciences,
the Military, the Four County Career
Center, specific eras, and the community, with an attempt to keep the group
equitable in terms of community representation.
Terms for the core committee are
unlimited. As vacancies occur, the Superintendent will present a slate of potential committee members at the next
meeting. A discussion will be held and a
vote taken. The nominee receiving most
the votes will be selected. In the event of
a tie, the top voter getters will be voted
on again.
A quorum of members of the core
committee is expected to permit the conduct of business. Proxy voting shall be
permitted. Members may use electronic
means such as e-mail or teleconference
to participate in the meetings and/or to
cast their vote.
These by-laws shall be amended by
2/3 affirmative votes of the existing
committee at the next meeting.

The committee will vote on the final


inductee(s) by January 31.
A representative of the committee will
contact the inductee(s), and a letter will

The recommended number of members to be inducted annually into the
hall shall be 0-3 individuals.
A nomination will remain in the active file for five years.
The selection and induction process
will be an annual event.
BALLOTING:
The method of balloting will be a
whole-number rank order. Rank order
voting ranks the first choice with the
highest number to the last choice being the lowest number. The median of
the rank order will be used to determine
each nominees ranking. The committee shall use its discretion in determining the need for additional voting. The
committee will determine the number of

Strykers Quadco Board Members Join Discussion On Future Workshops


The future of programs often
referred to as sheltered workshops
was discussed by the members of the
Quadco Administrative and Non-Profit
Boards at their regular meeting on
Tuesday (Aug. 26).
Quadco Executive Director Bruce
Abell passed out a news story about a
plan in New York to phase out sheltered
workshops in that state in the next five
years.
Mr. Abell pointed out that several
other states on the east and west coast
have taken similar actions. Ohio has
not set a formal deadline at this point,
he said, but informal indicators give
the impression they are on a similar
timetable.
He said that news stories such as
this across the country are showing a
divergence of responses. On one side,
he has read of people who feel the action
is not right, that they should have a
choice, and dont understand why these
measures are being taken. They view
sheltered workshops as a good thing.
On the other side of that there are
advocate groups that consider sheltered
workshops as a violation of peoples
right, as segregated environments
that pay subminimum wages and view
sheltered workshops in a negative way.
I think for the people that have been
involved in programs like Quadco, I cant
speak for any others, but for programs
like Quadco, they very much appreciate
what they have here, he said, and I
think it would be very difficult for any
of the people that come here to find that
they couldnt come here anymore.
Mr. Abell told the board members
that the center has addressed all of

the financial issues that have been


discussed at previous board meetings.
He said the center has reduced
personnel expenses, has increased the
amount of production work, and has
been controlling expenses.
He said they have been cutting back
on programs where there are small
numbers of people and the center does
not receive enough funding to cover the
expenses of operating the programs.
As Mr. Abell mentioned last month,
the operation of the Subway restaurants
has turned out to be one of those
areas. He told the board that Subway
restaurants typically use a successful
model that employs a small staff,
making them a cost-efficient operation.
But the restaurants Quadco operates
have a regular staff and trainers and the
people being trained.
An ongoing analysis of the program
showed that the center has been
receiving training fees for the people
being served as if they were in much
larger groups rather than in the
intimate training setting they were.
Consequently, the fees being received
fail to cover their costs creating a loss
at the stores.
As a result of the situation, Mr. Abell
said the center has contacted local
Subway officials to let them know they
will be offering the stores for sale.
The center will be meeting with
the people involved in the training
program there so that they can work on
transitioning into other programming to
meet their needs.
Program Director Philip Zuver
reported that there has been an increase
in assembly work at the center. He said

that there is a strong demand for the


cardboard pallets made by the center,
and the production has expanded from
their Archbold plant into the Stryker
facility as well.
Marketing Director Bill Priest noted
that the mens and womens club
members visited an 1,100-head dairy
farm recently. They learned about the
jobs available at the farm and got some
hands on experience with milking some
cows, saw how the feed was prepared
and distributed, watched newborn
calves begin their lives and fed some of
the calves at the farm.

Mr. Priest said the art club members


worked on blocks of wood, painted them
and added sea shells to create beach
door hangers this month.
He said the garden club members
have been getting a good harvest of
tomatoes recently and the senior
activity center participants spent some
time making lighthouses and stirring up
some strawberry homemade ice cream.
The next meeting of the Quadco
board is scheduled for September 23
in the conference room at the Stryker
building.

HAPPY FAMILY ... Kim Smith and Ben Kessler, with their children, Landyn and
Khloey.
Dear family & friends,
Our son Landyn was born on
November 2, 2013. There was never
any indication that anything was wrong
during the entire pregnancy or delivery.
However, when Landyn was 3 months
old we started noticing that he wasnt
reaching developmental milestones. At
first we thought he was just a lazy baby.
His doctor at the time always said he
was doing great and to keep doing what
we were doing. Over the next few months
Landyns development did not improve.
Family members kept recognizing things
that he wasnt doing for a baby his age.
We continued to deny that anything
was wrong, thinking he was a lazy baby
However, the more we thought about it,
we knew they were right. On the day of
his 6 month checkup, I told Ben that I
refused to take him back to his current
doctor and that I wanted a new one.
Landyn was examined thoroughly
by his new doctor. She told us that she
thought it could be Cerebral Palsy. She
explained that she couldnt diagnose
him with CP because that wasnt her
place to. Instead, she referred us to a
pediatric specialist and had us start
Landyn on Physical Therapy. The
pediatric specialist told us that Landyns
motor skills were like that of a 2-3 month
old and his speech was like that of a 5
month old. He also brought up Cerebral
Palsy as a possible diagnosis and
referred us to an orthopedic specialist.
The orthopedic specialist told us she
believes that Landyn does indeed have
Cerebral Palsy and is mostly right side
affected. At this point, the only thing
that Landyn can currently do is roll from
back to front, which he has been doing
since he was six months old. We want
to give Landyn every opportunity we
possibly can to overcome this condition,
become as independent as possible, and
be able to do things like playing with his
big sister.
Although Landyn has been involved
in physical therapy, we have been
searching for additional treatment

options for him to improve his quality of


life. What we discovered is Hyperbaric
Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and Conductive
Education (CE). Both have proven
to have dramatic effects for children
like Landyn. We have recently learned
that there is a facility right here in
Northwest Ohio, called Saras Garden,
that provides both of these services and
specializes in working with children
with Cerebral Palsy. We are just praying
for the opportunity for Landyn to benefit
from these treatments.
Despite the success that the
Hyperbaric
Oxygen
Therapy
and
Conduction Education have had in
treating individuals with Cerebral Palsy,
insurance companies in the United
States do not recognize them as being
therapeutic for the treatment of Cerebral
Palsy and therefore will not cover the
cost for treatments. That is why we
could really use your help. HBOT for
Landyn is only $110 per treatment and
Conductive Education is only $35 per
hour at Saras Garden. However, since
our plan is for him to receive at least
40 HBOT treatments and 60-80 hours
of CE, that cost adds up quickly.
If you could assist us with the
cost (or even just part of the cost) of
a single $110 HBOT treatment or $35
hour of CE, it would help reduce our
overall expenses greatly. 100% of the
funds received go into an account in
Landyns name and will be used for
his treatments. Any contribution made
would be considered a tax-deductible
donation as Saras Garden is a 501(c)(3)
non-profit facility. Checks can be made
out to Saras Garden with Landyns
name on a sheet of paper accompanying
the check. Please do NOT write his name
directly on the check. You can also
donate online via credit card by visiting
the Saras Garden website at http://
SarasGarden.org/LandynKessler/.
Thank you so much for considering
the support of Landyns treatments.

THE VILLAGE REPORTER
On Sunday, August 24, 2014,
Reverend Julie L. Parsell was installed
as Pastor of Wauseon Trinity Lutheran
Church. Pastor Parsell is a minister in
the Evangelical Lutheran Church in
America (ELCA) and has been ordained
for 16 years. She is excited to be a
part of the Wauseon community and
is looking forward to what the future
holds.
Reverend Parsell is passionate about
her calling in ministry, but ministry is
actually her second career. She holds a
Bachelor of Science degree in Business:
Marketing/Advertising
from
Ferris
State University in Michigan and began
her professional career in advertising
and broadcasting. Her personal time
was devoted to family and directing her
church choir.
She felt the vocational calling to
ministry and completed her Master of
Divinity at Trinity Lutheran Seminary
in Columbus, Ohio in 1998. For 14
years, she served as the pastor at
Trinity Lutheran Church in Hillsdale,
MI from 1998-2012. When she married
Dr. Rod Parsell, a dentist in Napoleon,
life necessitated a move to Ohio. From
2012-2014, she went under call from
the Synod and was placed as the
Intentional Interim Pastor at St. John
Lutheran Church in Deshler, OH for
nearly 2 years.
When the opportunity became
available at the Trinity Lutheran
Church in Wauseon, she interviewed
for the position. She has always enjoyed
the community of Wauseon and was
delighted to have the opportunity
extended to her. I see strong areas in
this congregation that line up with my
experience, Rev. Parsell shares.
Within the Trinity Lutheran Church
congregation, she sees a wealth of
musical and artistic talent. She herself
was once a church choir director, sings,

and plays the harp. Art can be used to


proclaim the message in a meaningful
way and can extend beyond the worship
service. Possibilities might include an
art exhibit, drama, or a dinner theater.
Reverend Parsell is also passionate
about mission work. While the Pastor
at the Hillsdale Trinity Lutheran
Church in Hillsdale, MI, she led the
congregation in starting a large food
pantry ministry called Kings Kupboard
as well as a shelter for homeless
women called Samaritan Place. The
food pantry exploded to where we were
serving 30,000 people a year with
only a congregation of about 200. In
addition, she also helped the local
ministerial association start an annual
project called Loaves & Fishes in which
area churches provide items such as
school supplies and haircuts and food
to families in need prior to the start
of school. The Wauseon congregation
is presently involved in various
community missions such as the TLC
Childcare Center, Thursday community
dinners, FISH food pantry, and clothing
closet, and she anticipates the presence
of talent, gifts, and commitment of her
new congregation will provide more
opportunities to expand care and
partnerships within the community.

While worship and study are central
to congregations, we are designed to
propel Gods love into the community,
Rev. Parsell believes.
Beyond locally based community
mission work, Reverend Parsell has also
been to the Philippines with the Jimmy
Carter project, Africa three times,
and the Holy Land last year. She has
participated in medical mission trips,
Habitat for Humanity, and orphanage
mission work. She combines her love of
travel with the passion for sharing Gods
love in the community and beyond the
community, globally, and expresses
Faith expands exponentially when we
look beyond our community. We find a
greater appreciation for the resources
within our own communities. She
currently serves on the Global Mission
Board of the Northwestern Ohio Synod
and was recently elected to serve on the
Northwestern Ohio Synod Council.
Vision and passion can spur great
things, but growth is not without
unique obstacles of its own. Churches
in
America,
especially
mainline
denominations, today face challenges
as the world constantly changes.
Rev. Parsell expresses, As Lutheran
pastors, our challenge is to not sell out
to the culture, but to hold to the faith

and honor tradition, but be open to


new things. She strongly values the
importance of nurturing young people
and understanding they are living in a
different world, and the church has a
role in helping them to grow.
To honor the past while looking to the
futureits a challenge and balancing
act. Reverend Parsell strongly feels
that churches represent a strong sense
of community, one that allows each
generation to use its talents and grow
with each other, if they are willing and
open. An online sermon is not the same
as being there with other Christians.
During the service Sunday, Pastor
Parsell was installed during worship by
the Rev. Marc Miller, Assistant to the
Bishop of the Northwestern Ohio Synod
of the ELCA with assistance from Rev.
Jen Herrmann who has been a pastor
at Trinity for the past 6 years. The
congregation, as well as representatives
from both of Parsells prior churches,
participated in the installation service.
Trinity Lutheran Church offers
worship on Sunday at 8am and
10:30am, as well as Saturday at 5pm.
All are welcome! For more information,

The most recent data provided
by the Ohio Department of Job and
Family Services shows a slight rise
in unemployment from June to July.
Ohios unemployment rate rose from
5.5% to 5.7%, with 7000 more Ohioans
unemployed, over that time frame. The
number of unemployed has decreased
by 110,000 in the past 12 months from
433,000. The July unemployment rate
for Ohio was down from 7.5 percent in
July 2013. The U.S. unemployment rate
for July was 6.2 percent, up from 6.1
percent in June, and down from 7.3
percent in July 2013.
Likewise, both Fulton and Williams
County also saw some increase in their
number of unemployed. Fulton County
rose from 6.0% in June to 6.1% in
July while Williams County rose from
5.6% to 5.7%. These changes move
Fulton County from the 27th to the
36th position, and Williams County
from the 49th to the 50th, position in
the state ranking used to compare
unemployment rates across the state.
The state ranking lists counties with
the highest unemployment rates for the
month ranked first. With unemployment
rates increasing in 73 of Ohios 88
counties, Fulton Countys improvement
in the ranking can be attributed to other
counties seeing higher rate increases.
Statewide, unemployment ranged
from a low of 3.3 % in Mercer County
to a high of 12.2% in Monroe County.

Jews for Jesus To Speak At


Solid Rock Community Church

Solid Rock Community Church invites


all to hear a presentation given by Jews
for Jesus on Sunday, September 21st at
10:30 AM and 6 PM. The topic will be Gospel in the Feasts of Israel and Christ in the
Feast of Tabernacles.
Jews for Jesus is an agency that proclaims that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel
and Savior of the world. The late Moishe
Rosen, a Jew who has believed in Jesus
for over 35 years, founded the organization. However, Dr. Rosen was quick to
point out that he did not start Jews for
Jesus. Jews for Jesus began about 2,000
years ago, around 32 C.E., give or take a
year. Jesus first disciples were Jewish,
and there have been some Jewish people
who have believed in him ever since.
The organization has permanent
branches in eight North American cities

(San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Toronto, New York City, Washington
D.C. and Fort Lauderdale) as well as over
127 volunteer chapters spanning some 41
states and five countries. The groups international branches are headquartered
in Johannesburg, London, Paris, Odessa,
Moscow, Essen, Rio de Janeiro, Kharkov,
Dnepopretrovsk, and Tel Aviv.
To the Jews for Jesus, believing in Jesus
makes sense in light of the Jewish Bible
and in light of their experiences as believers. For those who argue that Christianity contradicts the meaning of Judaism,
the Jews for Jesus say there are answers,

Healthy Choices Caring


Communities Hosting Event
For Marijuana Awareness

Wauseon,
OH
Healthy
Choices
Caring Communities, in
partnership with Drug
free Action Alliance, would
like to invite community
professionals
parents
and
other
interested
adults to attend an
information session on
Tuesday,
September
9th from 9:30 a.m.
11:30 a.m. at the Fulton
County
Administration
Building, 152 S. Fulton
INFORMATION PROVIDED St.,
Wauseon,
OH.
Healthy Choices Caring
Communities is hosting
this event for parents to
learn and ask questions
about marijuana use and
how it can affect your
family, your employees, or
your business.
All around the country,
marijuana policies are
changing rapidly. At the
same time, marijuana use
is on the rise, and so are
the number of myths and
misunderstandings about
this drug. Is marijuana
addictive? Is it safer than
alcohol? Is it safer than
cigarettes? Chances are
you have heard a lot of
conflicting answers to
these questions. Join us
as we separate opinion
from fact by exploring
what the research says
about both the health
and impairment effects of
marijuana.

HOW ITS MADE ... The West Unity Tiger Cubs recently toured Cool Beanz in
Montpelier, Ohio. The boys got to learn how ice cream is made and got to sample
some of their delicious ice cream. All the boys decided that Blue Moon was their
favorite. Thank you Steve and Laura Rings for allowing the boys to come and learn
all about Cool Beanz. Pictured here are Steve Rings, Shane Netcher Jr, and Darius
Ross.

included Mercer (3.3%), Holmes (3.9%),


Auglaize (4.1%), and Delaware (4.3%).
Counties with the highest rates included
Monroe (12.2%), Meigs (9.4%), Huron
(8.9%), Morgan (8.8%), Scioto (8.5%),
and Jefferson (8.0%).
Throughout the state, job growth was
seen in local government (+6900); trade,
transportation, and utilities (+1000);
and construction (+600). However,
these gains were offset by losses in state
government (-5300), professional and
business services (-4200), education and
health services (-3700), manufacturing
(-2900), leisure and hospitality (-2900),
other services (-1400), information
(-200), and financial activities (-200).
Ohioans wishing to learn more
about unemployment benefits or who
are in search of a job can visit www.
ohiomeansjobs.com. The information in
this article and the monthlystatistical
analysis it is based upon are also
available at http://jfs.ohio.gov/ocomm

Learning Objectives:
1. Participants will be
able to identify commonly
held
views
about
marijuana and evaluate
the accuracy of these
views based on current
research findings.
2. Participants will
be able to counteract
harmful and misleading
information
that
is
circulating
about
marijuana
and
contributing to the lack of
perceived risk associated
with its use.
3.
Participants
will
understand
why
abstinence is the only
recommended choice for
marijuana.
Nathan Hartsock, Delta
Police Chief, recognizes
how important it is to be
informed. As a concerned
citizen and father of a
15 year old daughter, I
could tell you that what I
learned about marijuana
growing up would not
concern most, but as a law
enforcement officer with
23 years of experience,

what I have seen in my


career might shock most
anyone. If I could reach
anyone about the hazards
of marijuana use I would
say this; I know most
people look at marijuana
as a harmless drug. I
have heard every argument
for it from its not like Im
doing hard drugs, to no
one has ever died from a
marijuana overdose. I
have seen a decline in the
concerns of marijuana use
even from our politicians
and Law Makers who have
moved to decriminalize
it over the last couple
years. I want people to
be more concerned about
it, especially the so called
medical marijuana which
has a higher potency.
In my opinion, which is
shared by most experts in
the medical community,
marijuana is a gateway
drug. I have asked many
marijuana users if they
use any other drug and
most will say no, but most
every heroin, cocaine,
and crack user that I deal
with on a daily basis will
say that the first drug the

used was marijuana.

Fulton County Engineer Discusses 2014 Salt Increases


(WAUSEON, OH) The Office of the
Fulton County Engineer has been
busy wrapping up summer projects
and preparing for the upcoming winter
months. In that, they have recently
entered into a contract with North
American Salt for road salt for the
upcoming winter season. This years
contracted rate of $95.50 (per ton) is up
53% over the previous year.
Its been a tough bidding and
negotiation process this year, states
Frank
Onweller,
Fulton
County
Engineer, Salt is at a premium due
to the high usage from last years
winter. Onweller notes that they have
approximately 1,000 tons in storage
and expect to purchase 1,200 to 1,400
tons this winter.

Rates fluctuate every year, but


this year is one of the most significant
increases weve seen since 1997. Ive
been in communication with other
County Engineers Offices throughout
the State, and most seem to be dealing
with these higher prices as well. In some
counties, they are unable to even get a
salt supplier to quote them a price so
they are still searching for salt.
With the exception of the previous year
(2013-14), the Fulton County Highway
Department used on average 1,000
tons of salt over the past 10 winters.
There is, however, no way to predict the
upcoming winter precipitation. Safety
for the public has always been and will
remain our top priority in relation to
road safety. We will have to navigate

its second annual event, Giants Over Hillside, on Saturday September 6th at the

begin at 10:30 a.m. and end at 5:00 p.m. Concessions will be available as well as
a 50/50 raffle. The event is free to the public. Shown is Denny Wann, Club Field
Marshall of The Hillside Aeromodelers with his Ultimate Biplane.

a fine balance on how and when we


spread the salt without jeopardizing
public safety, states Onweller.
Although the chance of wintry
weather is still a couple of months
away, Onweller reminds the public
to take it slow on the ice and snow.
Leave for your destination early, and
drive well below the speed limit. Give
our snowplows extra room to navigate.
They arent able to drive as fast as the
posted speed limit and their vision is
restricted. You are able to see them,
but they may not be able to see you.
For helpful information and tips on
driving in ice and snow, visit the Ohio

Department of Transportations website


at www.dot.state.oh.us.
How does the County pay for this?
Onweller said that the cost for the
winter snow and ice control operations,
like all other operational costs and
expenditures in the County Engineers
Office and Highway Department, are
paid for from revenue generated from
the collection of motor vehicle license
registration fees and state fuel taxes.

families from throughout the region
to Home School Appreciation Days
September 9-13 and September
16-20. Families are encouraged
to call and pre-register to receive

for home school families to have fun
in the past while learning something
new at Sauder Village!
As a special for Home School

they will receive a special discount
- $7.00 admission per person for
ages 3 and up. Guests must call
800.590.9755 and pre-register to

An award-winning living-history destination, Sauder Village offers plenty for
guests to see and do while visiting historic homes, farms, gardens and community

homes, gardens and more!


Throughout the Village guests can also marvel at craftsmen blending skill and
creativity in glass, metals, fabric wood and clay. Celebrating fine craftsmanship

trade but also offer hand-crafted items available for sale in places like the Spinning
Shop, Pottery Shop, Weaving Shop, Glass Shop and Tiffin River Woodworks.
For guests with young children a visit to Sauder Village would not be complete
without spending time in the log cabin, barn and garden at Little Pioneers
Homestead or meeting the animals in the barnyard. A ride on the horse-drawn
carriage and a trip around the Village on the Erie Express Train are also popular
activities. Other favorite stops include a visit to the Ice-Cream Parlor, the Sweet

CHURCH & SPIRITUAL NEWS

Devotional Thought / Fellowship of Christian Athletes


BY: REX STUMP - PEACE IN THE MIDST OF CHAOS

This
devotional
thought is shared by Tim
Howard, U.S. Mens National Soccer Team Goalkeeper. You can read his
faith story in the latest
FCA Magazine: http://
www.fca.org/themagazine/comfortable-in-hisown-skin/
Having spent the first
ten years of my life with
an undiagnosed case
of Tourette Syndrome,
a neurological disorder characterized by uncontrollable physical and verbal tics, I did not experience a
lot of peace. Yet even though my life often felt chaotic,
I knew I could always count on one person to provide
calm and stability-my grandmother.
Nanas sense of peace was powerful because it came
from her faith in the Lord. Through her, God revealed
His love for me as well. It wasnt long before I followed
in her footsteps. I wanted the same kind of faith and
peace she had, and that is exactly what God gave me.
Living with Tourettes is not easy, but God has
blessed me with the gift of athleticism and has done
some powerful things in my life through the combination of these two gifts. He has helped me in my long-

term success as a professional soccer player in the


English Premier League and U.S. National Team; and
He also has shown me ways to use my position as a
professional athlete to encourage others with Tourette
Syndrome. Today, I am blessed to be living my dream.
Yet, if my soccer career went away tomorrow, I know
I would still have peace. That probably sounds crazy
to most people, but thats the kind of peace Christ
gives. It is rooted in His love and it surpasses all understanding.
The disciples once learned a lesson about peace
during an eventful boat ride. In Mark 4, they were
crossing a lake with Jesus when a severe storm arose.
The disciples feared for their lives, yet, among the
chaos, Jesus slept calmly. When they woke Him, Jesus commanded the wind and the sea to be still!
and there was peace. That is what He can do in our
lives. Among our storms and our chaos, Jesus provides peace.
You can experience this same sense of love and
peace, too. All you have to do is ask for it.
When do you struggle to find peace as a competitor
for Christ? What are you not believing about God in
those times? Read the passages below to discover the
peace that only Jesus provides and ask Him to help
you believe Him.
For more reading check out: Mark 4:35-41, Galatians 5:22-23, and Philippians 4:6-7

Winning The Battle


For A Generation

HAVE YOU EVER REACHED THAT CRISIS


MOMENT, THE POINT OF NO RETURN??
For me, as a young sixteen
year-old, I had reached a
point of no return. That day,
as I pondered my decision
to leave my old life behind, I
held in my hand a false ID,
made for me by a friend to
illegally purchase alcohol,
and a bottle of liquor. I
smashed the bottle of vodka
on a rock near the woods of
our home and I tore up the
false ID, there was no turning
back for me even though I
could not fathom how my
new life would turn out.
Have you ever reached
that crisis moment, the point of no return? If you
were an astronaut you would understand the
importance of such a moment I read the following
in preachingtoday.com regarding reaching the point
of no return.
To illustrate Christs call to discipleship, Pastor
Tommy Hinson shared that on some evenings, he
and his son, Riley, enjoy watching YouTube videos of
Space Shuttle launches together.
Hinson said that there is a point at the end of the
video where you hear the phrase negative return.
According to NASAs official website, negative
return occurs when the space shuttle is flying too far
downrange and too high to return to the launch site
in the event of an engine failure. It also means that,
for the astronaut, they are now to the point where
they are assured of making it into orbitwhich is the
whole point of the shuttle launch.
Hinson comments: Jesus is saying, only by crossing
the point of negative return, letting go of the option
to turn back, can you actually do what youre meant
to do. Whatever your landing site wasyour identity,
your sense of purposebefore you came to me, you
need to leave all possibility of returning behind.
Regarding turning our back on our old life and
embracing new life with Jesus, Jesus said Matthew
8:21 (NIV), 21 Another disciple said to him, Lord, first
let me go and bury my father. 22 But Jesus told him,
Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.
If you have reached that point of no return, the day
of decision, what are you waiting for? Turn from your
sin and follow your Savior, the Lord Jesus.
Rick Jones, was former Executive Director of
Defiance Area Youth for Christ and serves
as a pastor of an area local church.
