Deputy Nick Mendez (left) of the Paulding County Sheriffs Office graduated DARE training in
Columbus on Oct. 9. He has since been making visits to schools of the county to introduce himself
and the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program. Congratulating him on his accomplishment
was Sheriff Jason Landers.

County DARE-ing to
make a difference
By DENISE GEBERS
Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING For the first time in about
12 years Paulding County has a DARE officer on the Paulding County Sheriffs office
staff. Deputy Nick Mendez has completed two
weeks training in Columbus recently and is
on the job.
That job includes visiting the kindergarten
and fifth grade classes in each of the county
school systems including Divine Mercy Catholic School. After 80 hours of officer training, he
is qualified to teach the Drug Abuse Resistance

Education (DARE) curriculum at all grade levels, however.


DARE encourages kids to make safe, responsible decisions, said Deputy Mendez.
His program will reach about 540 students
countywide. He is sharing DAREs mission
of Teaching students good decision-making
skills to help them lead safe and healthy lives.
Visits to the kindergarten classes occur once
a school year and involve a lesson about calling
911 and how to determine if a situation is an

PAULDING When employees from
Grunnell-Cashero building restorers were
tuck pointing and sealing the exterior of the
Paulding County Courthouse, one of the contractors was working around the bottom of the
trim at the dome when he experienced difficulty in having his fasteners take hold.
He even tried 10-inch screws, commented county Commissioner Tony Zartman.
They did some inspection and then contacted the commissioners office, continued
Zartman. I went up with them. We saw that
a majority of the wooden structure that sits on
brick was severely deteriorating. We called an
engineering firm and they came immediately
and checked the situation.
The inspection determined that the dome
was not in a state of dire emergency, but things
needed to be repaired soon on the building,
which was completed in 1888.
Shortly after, a study by Poggemeyer Design Group in Defiance brought a recommendation to install an all-new structure made of

D&M CONCRETE

steel inside the interior of the structure.


After looking over bids, commissioners decided to hire McDonalds Design & Build of
Defiance to carry out the task.
They said that one side had settled two
inches, noted Zartman. They (as of this
Monday) have already done preliminary work.
We expect them to come back next week and
install the new steel structure. Its all interior work. We hope when this is completed, all
major work is done on the courthouse.
Commissioners noted that the cost for the
repair is $71,740, the lower bid. Bids ranged
upwards to $99,000, said the officials.
This is not something we planned on, but
were glad we found it when we did, said
Zartman. Otherwise, the potential was there
for a very serious situation. Had we had a high
wind event, that thing could have let go and
crashed all the way to the basement.
Once they physically start, they should be
done in three weeks, added Zartman. Were
hoping that the weather remains dry so there
wont be any marks or damage to the ground
around the courthouse.

So many ideas on

PACHYDERMS are a girls best friend

By JUDY WELLS
Feature Writer
Part 2 of 2
When she first began volunteering in the zoo field, Amber
Simpson wasnt sure which animals she wanted to work with.
I hadnt spent much time
around elephants when I started
my second internship in the Asia
Quest department at the Columbus Zoo, she says. While
there, I worked with the elephant
and rhino (pachyderm) keepers
and I fell in love with the elephants.
They are very unique creatures that are highly intelligent
and have such unique characteristics that, in my opinion, no
other animal compares with.
They have more than 40,000
muscles in their trunks alone!
They can use their trunks to pick
up something as small as a jellybean or use them to knock down
a tree.
They can also control the
amount of blood that flows to
the veins in their ears. By allowing more blood flow at certain
times they can help cool down
their bodies. These are just a few
of the characteristics that make
them amazing creatures, Amber enthused.
While working as a keeper at
the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, Amber is still in training.
Theres not a set amount
of time that training takes for
my current job, she says. My
supervisors determine my
schedule and when they feel Im
ready to move on to the next
level.
Currently we work with our
two female Asian elephants
51-year-old Panya and 42-yearold Jean in a free-contact
setting. This means that we go in
shared space with the elephants.
Our elephants know about 50
different verbal commands that
help us in our everyday husbandry as well as with medical
procedures if needed.
By working them in
free-contact, were able to take
them for walks around the zoo
each morning before we open.
This is a great way to give them
exercise and time to graze on
grass throughout the zoo. The
morning walks are just one
example of why we continue to
use free-contact.
My opinion is that free-contact is much better for the elephants and safer for the keepers.
Many zoos now use protective
contact with their elephants, in
which there is always a barrier
between the keeper and the elephant.
When I began my training,
I started with asking stationary
behaviors of each animal such
as lifting one foot, lifting their

Panya and Jean


are the female
Asian elephants

Simpsons care at
the Audubon Zoo
in New Orleans.
Besides bathing
and walking
them, she and
her co-workers
also regulate their
diets, train them
and clean their
barn. Her favorite
part of zoo keeping is helping
others make a
connection with
the animals.

trunks, and other similar tasks.


Now Im walking the elephants
through the zoo with supervision, using commands Ive
learned to give them baths, and
asking for behaviors from both
of them at the same time! That
can be challenging.
Panya, the older of the two
pachyderms, weighs in at about
five-and-a-half tons, while Jean
only weighs about four tons. The
average age for an Asian elephant in a zoo is late 40s to early
50s.
I work with Panya and
Jean every day, Amber says.
Theyre both healthy and doing
very well. My day begins with
cleaning their barn, including
removing the leftover hay from
the previous day along with any
other debris, scrubbing and disinfecting the floors and walls of
each stall, and then a final rinse.
I go on morning walks with
the elephants and my co-workers, and after lunch we do training sessions with the elephants.
We give them their baths and do
any other projects to keep the department looking nice. The last
thing we do each night is set up
their diet. Theyre fed throughout the day, with the bulk of
their diet fed in the evening.
They eat timothy and Bermuda
hay, various types of produce,
tree trimmings (browse) from
around the zoo, and any extra
enriching items.
Amber says her favorite part
of being a zoo keeper is being
able to make a connection between an animal and a member
of the public, something one of

her professors called the Ahha! moment. She defines it as


the moment when you see the
persons eyes light up.
Its the moment when the
animal melts that persons heart
just enough to make a lasting
impression and inspire them to
help that particular species, she
says. My first Ah-ha! moment
was in college. I was walking
through the zoo looking for visitors that may have questions. I
came across a family of four and
introduced myself.
When I asked if they had
questions, the oldest boy spoke
up. I answered his question and
they went on their way. Shortly
thereafter, I ran into the family
again. The same boy asked a
few other questions about the
otters, and then followed that
with a few more questions.
I then offered to walk around
the zoo with them and tell them
about all of our animals. He
jumped at the offer and continued to ask questions. He even
taught me some facts along the
way! When we finished the tour,
the mother thanked me for taking time to speak with her son. I
told her I enjoyed it and I hoped
they had a great day. I also told
the son how great his questions
were and how to begin volunteering at a zoo when he asked
about becoming a zookeeper.
Amber says education and
making a connection with the
public is vital to animal conservation efforts.
There are different conservation issues that affect Asian
elephants, she says. One is

elephant-human conflict, such


as habitat loss. With the growing
population in and around normal
elephant habitat, theyre running
out of room.
What used to be migratory
paths is now broken up by
villages, roads and mines. This
also causes issues for humans
because the animals will raid
villages and crops as they pass
through an area. These events
cause damage to human prop-

erty and in some cases costs


human lives.
Humans are now using various methods to deter them, such
as electric fencing, shrubbery,
and even citrus trees. The trees
grow thorns and the elephants
dont care for the fruit, so they
leave the trees alone and walk
around them. The farmers can
then harvest their fruit without
being in danger.
She says the increased de-

Walking the elephants each morning around Audubon Zoo in


New Orleans is part of Amber Simpsons job description. As a
new keeper at the zoo, she is still being trained in the free-contact setting. She has not only learned about the animals, but also
issues concerning them.

mand for ivory (mostly on the


black market) is also hurting the
elephant population. Although
most of the poaching occurs
in Africa, its becoming more
popular in Asian countries, she
says.
Only the male Asian elephants have large tusks, making
them a target for poachers.
There are groups that patrol
protected habitat with captive,
trained elephants, looking for
signs of poachers. These animals
have been raised by trainers,
called Mahouts, and can be used
for patrolling, logging and educating the public about pachyderms.
There are only about 40,000
Asian elephants left in the wild
today, which puts them on the
endangered list. That number is
steadily declining so its important that we do all we can to protect them. Education is the first
step in creating a better future
for these and other wild animals.
There are many organizations that are working in Asian
regions to protect them. Feld
Entertainment, for example,
has a facility in Sri Lanka that
helps orphaned or injured elephant calves regain strength
and health so they have a better
chance of survival in the wild.
And by conducting studies with
the elephants at the CEC we are
constantly learning new ways to
help them.
She says a few other organizations that are helping Asian
elephants and many other wild
species are the International
Elephant Foundation, WildAid,
and 96 Elephants. Anyone who
would like to learn more, may
check out the websites of these
organizations.

Lovinas daughter offers


glimpse of Amish teens life
Hello! This is Lovinas
17-year-old daughter, Verena. I
decided to help Mom out since
she is busy sewing Lorettas
dress for Friday. Mom sewed
hers yesterday. She will be a
cook and Loretta is a babysitter
at Aden and Ruths wedding.
I gathered the laundry for tomorrow, as Ill be washing the
laundry alone since Mom has
to help bake pies for the wedding on Friday.
On Saturday, Dad shot a
deer with a bow. Mose helped
him get the deer up from the
woods and butchered. This is
the first time Dad went hunting this fall. Ben and Joseph
are also bow hunting. Joseph
was excited to go hunting
again when he heard Dad got
a deer. Tim shot two deer this
season, and Mose also shot
one. My sister Liz was along
when her husband Tim got the
second one, and she wasnt
too enthused about that.
Mom and us girls went over
to Lizs place after the hog
roast. Liz and Tim were canning applesauce. We helped
Liz get her dishes washed,
and of course we spoiled Lizs
dogs, Izzy and Crystal.
After Liz was married, I
moved into her bedroom. I had
always shared a bedroom with
Susan, so its different to have
my own bedroom now. I still
forget sometimes and put my
clothes in Susans bedroom!
My siblings still call it Lizs

room. We miss Liz. We all


looked up to her. Its exciting
to be able to go to Tim and
Lizs place and also when they
come home with the dogs.
I was a table waiter at my
friend Loretta (Schwartz)
Lenachers wedding on Oct.
9. She was married to Lester
Lenacher. Every community
does weddings differently, so
I had to ask a lot of questions
on how they do it. Its pretty
interesting to see how differently everyone does it. I have
quite a few dear friends from
that community, so I really enjoyed it. I also met a lot of new
friends.
Tonight, I am going to make
a casserole for Mom to take tomorrow. She will take it along
for lunch. All the women take
a dish for lunch. Chicken and
potato casserole is what Ill be
making.
The leaves are falling from
the trees. I miss the days when
all us children were younger.
We used to love playing in the
leaves. All of us would help
each other gather the leaves

Office on Aging
endorses levy

Dear Editor,
On behalf of the Area Office on Aging of Northwestern
Ohio Inc.s board of directors,
this letter is to inform you of
the Area Office on Agings
endorsement of the Paulding
County 0.5-mill replacement
senior levy.
As the designated, regional
planning and service development agency on aging,
we are well aware of the
needs of older adults across
northwest Ohio, including
Paulding County. We recognize that older adults depend
on support from this levy for
essential services. We also
recognize that these services
also indirectly benefit the
sons and daughters who care
for their aging parent with
these levy-funded services
supplementing the care the
sons and daughters provide to
their aging parent.
The senior levy funding is
especially important given
that Paulding Countys older
adult population has increased
by 14 percent since the levy
was last passed in 2010 and
that Paulding Countys older
adult population is projected
to increase by an additional
12 percent over the next five
years.
With the Area Office on
Agings endorsement and

festival including new features like the Bluegrass Bonanza and bands like Liberty
Rain and Strawberry Hill plus
many returning favorites.
The festival spent over
$20,000 in Paulding County this year. That includes
shopping local at places like
Marcos Pizza, Chiefs Supermarkets, and Napa True
Value. Any services that could
be contracted locally such as
trash, printing, advertising
and security were kept within
the county. We supported
many local organizations such
as band boosters, junior class
prom committee and more by
donating for services that they
provided for the festival.
We dont have all of the
numbers back yet, but the
festival also provides many
local non-profit agencies and
organizations a way to raise
significant funds. Churches,
Scout troops, civic clubs, libraries, firefighters and many
more work tirelessly during
the festival tomake life better
for the citizens of Paulding
County.
We estimate that 10,000
people were on the fairgrounds over the course of the
weekend to work, shop, camp
and play. And isnt that what
it is all about?
People keep asking me if
Flat Rock was a success. I
told them all weekend that
I saw people eating, people
shopping and people enjoying
themselves. So yes, it was a
huge success.
We do care deeply about
the Flat Rock Creek Fall Festival. The hours that our many
volunteers put in prior to and
during the festival should be
evidence of that. But as with
any undertaking, we will always have room to improve,
learn and grow. There will be
some mistakes made along the
way. There will be people who
dont like changes that are
made. There will be things that
will happen that will be out
of our control. But we must
keep on working to make the
festival better each year so that
it will continue for another
quarter of a century.

Every month is
safe driving month
By Lt. Tim Grigsby
Ohio State Highway Patrol
We Ohioans recently turned the calendar from September to October. With that comes temperature change, leaves changing colors
and falling from trees, maybe the first frost. One thing that does not
change is safe driving.
September has been designated Safe Driving Awareness Month
by Governor John Kasich. This designation came in the form of a
bill signed by Governor Kasich in June of this year, honoring the
memory of Maria Tiberi, a 21-year-old woman from Columbus,
who was killed in a 2014 traffic crash when her car collided with a
stopped semi-tractor trailer. The crash was caused by some type of
unknown distraction. While this designation is a formalized way of
reminding motorists to drive safely during September, your local
Ohio State Highway Patrol Post would like to remind the community that EVERY month is safe driving month.
Thus far in 2015, seven lives have been lost on Van Wert and
Paulding County roadways. Half of these crashes involved occupants not wearing seatbelts when they were available for use. While
wearing a seatbelt does not guarantee that an occupant of a motor
vehicle will survive a crash, studies show that utilizing an occupant
restraint device along with modern safety features dramatically
increases your chances of surviving a motor vehicle crash. Additionally, injuries sustained in crashes are greatly reduced when wearing
a seatbelt versus those that are unrestrained. Ohio is currently experiencing a 10 percent increase in traffic related fatalities in 2015. That
equates to over 800 lives lost this year so far.
When looking at these crashes, it is alarming the number that can
be attributed to some form of distracted driving. I know that I have
touched on this previously, but it bears repeating. So much so, that
during the signing of the bill by Governor Kasich which stated, To
all the moms and dads and boys and girls, just drive the car, Kasich
said. The phone can wait. Text can wait. Just pay attention. Thats
the message, and its a simple one.
The safety of our community is on the minds of all of your local
law enforcement officials. I lament each moment my phone rings
and hear that we lost another community member to a preventable
traffic crash, especially those that are not seat belted.
On that note, I wish to applaud Van Wert Police Chief Joel
Hammond and Paulding County Sheriff Jason Landers on recently
partnering with the Van Wert Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol
to help spread the message of appreciation for those that wear their
seatbelts. Our agencies have teamed up with local businesses and
have been going to area high schools and handing out items, such
as free pizzas, to students wearing their seatbelts as they enter the
school grounds. Thank you gentleman, for caring enough about our
youth to enable your resources to reach out and positively affect the
community.
Moving into our fall months, please keep in mind that schools are
back in session, poor weather will start to move in, and temperatures
are falling that can create hazardous conditions, especially on bridges
and overpasses. With all of these other circumstances, remember
that safe driving begins with the one thing that you control; you. The
choice to drive safely is exactly that, a choice. Make the safe choice
for yourself and the motorists you share the road with. It is a choice
that you can live with.
Lt. Grigsby is the Post Commander of the Van Wert Post of the
Ohio State Highway Patrol. He welcomes input and public comments. You can reach him at (419) 238-3055, or can visit him at the
post located at 10234 Van Wert-Decatur Road.

This years competition list
includes titles from throughout
the twentieth century as well as
the popular titles since the year
2000. Many of the titles this
years teams will be reading
include titles their parents and
grandparents might have read.
Examples include: Pollyanna (1913) by Eleanor Porter,
Bambi: A Life in the Woods
(1928) by Felix Salten, The
Black Stallion (1941) by Walter
Farley, The Boxcar Children
(1924) by Gertrude Chandler
Warner, Caddie Woodlawn
(1935) by Carol Ryrie Brink,
Julie of the Wolves (1972) by
Jean Craighead George, Number the Stars (1989) by Lois

Lowry, Sounder (1969) by William Armstrong, as well as a


Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and
other memorable titles.
The Battle is just one example of how the public library
partners with county school
systems to create a meaningful
and engaging reading program.
This important program is
made possible by generous
donations of area businesses
such as Lafarge North America Inc., Baughman Tile Company Inc., Cooper Family
Foundation, Dr. Jeffery Rhees
and Dr. Larry Tope.

Ohio Thats where Im from!


I am proud to say, I am
from Ohio. I was born and
raised here and I rather doubt
if I have seen all there is to
see in this state. Of course
we know that in Ohio, we all
bleed scarlet and gray and The
Ohio State Buckeyes are the
best college football team in
the USA. (My opinion.) Go
OSU!
Another thing I like about
living in Ohio is enjoying all
four seasons. The aroma of
spring flowers, the summer
smells of charcoal grills, the
scent of leaves burning in the
fall and the coziness of sitting
by a warm fire and drinking
cocoa on a snowy winters
day. This has to be small-town
Ohio at its best.
In the summer, we hear
the sounds of baseball bats
cracking as kids play ball. We
hear the sounds of a band and
cheering at a football game in
the fall. In the winter, we can
hear the sounds of the snow
plows clearing off the roads
and in the springtime we can
hear farmers in the field planting crops.
Besides my love of Ohio,
did you know that the state
of Ohio has a lot of things to
boast about? Did you know
that the first ambulance service started in Cincinnati? In
addition to that, Cleveland
was the first city to use a traffic light. The cash register was
invented in Ohio, the Cincinnati Reds were the first professional baseball team and Neil
Armstrong of Wapakoneta

A Penny for
Your Thoughts

By
Nancy Whitaker
was the first man to walk on
the moon.
Maybe I should be a walking billboard for Ohio, because I think it is an important
accomplishment to know that
seven U.S. Presidents were
born in Ohio. Do you know
who they were? Ulysses S.
Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes,
James A. Garfield, Benjamin
Harrison, William McKinley,
William H. Taft and Warren
G. Harding.
Some more fascinating information is that Fostoria is
the only town located in the
state that sets in three different
counties. They are Wood, Seneca and Hancock.
Chewing gum was invented in Ohio as well as the light
bulb and the airplane. Ohio is
home to county fairs, festivals,
lakes, forests and fields.
I just discovered that there
is a permanent display of
Things Swallowed at the Al-

len County Museum in Lima.


The display features things
that have been swallowed by
individuals and retrieved by
doctors. They include buttons,
thumbtacks, bones, coins and
even dentures.
In Wapakoneta, there is a
shrine called the Temple of
Tolerance that looks like it
should be somewhere sacred,
but its in a residents backyard. Hes the temple master
and gives free tours every day.
(At least that is what I have
read.)
Ohio also holds the record
for the worlds largest basket,
at the Longaberger Company
headquarters building in Newark. Its seven stories high and
180,000 square feet.
In addition, the state bird of
Ohio is the cardinal and the
name Ohio is derived from an
Iroquois Indian term meaning

Museums Festival of Trees


tradition expands to 6 days

PAULDING John Paulding Historical Society will soon be celebrating 30 years of its
annual Christmas tree festival. The first Festival of Trees was only five trees and has grown
each year. This year, over 75 trees will be displayed in the main building as well as Barn
One and Barn Two.
The trees are out of storage and ready for the
decorators. Anyone who received a letter of invitation is asked to RSVP the historical society
at 419-399-5818 or 419-399-8218. Decorating
times are any Tuesday until the festival from
10 a.m.-4 p.m. and the weekend of Nov. 7-9.
The informational letter included the decorating times or by appointment.
The committee has already begun decorating and it really is beginning to look like
Christmas. Volunteers are always needed to
greet or to help serve. Or if you enjoy decorating, please join in to help.
Anyone interested in decorating a tree is invited to participate by calling the phone numbers listed above.
The committee is still in need of someone
who would be willing to take pictures of Santa
and print them so parents can take them home.
Please contact the committee if interested.
There has been one change for this years
festival. The festival will operate two weekends. This has been a request for several years
and everyone is excited about the added weekend and hopes many will come out to share the
experience during this festive time. The dates
for the festival are scheduled for Nov. 13-15
and Nov. 20-22.

The first weekend will hold all of the activities. At 4 p.m. on Friday Nov. 13, a baked potato bar will be held. Saturday, Nov. 14, a brunch,
cookie walk, Santa, lunch, and kids afternoon
are all part of the days activities. The museum
will close at 3 p.m.
On Sunday, Nov. 15, brunch begins at 11
a.m. and the museum closes at 4 p.m. There
will be entertainment Friday evening and Sunday afternoon.
Hours for the next weekend will be the same,
but the museum will be open just to view the
trees. As much as members would like to offer
more, there are just not enough volunteers to do
both weekends.
There will be a memory/honor tree, silent
auction and OSU raffle. The favorite tree jars
will be under the trees for both weekends.
The Festival of Trees will conclude at 4 p.m
on Nov. 22. The silent auction and the OSU raffle will end at 3 p.m. that afternoon.
Another change is the private viewing for
the assisted living/nursing homes and specialty homes during the second week. Letters were
sent to those who attended last year.
School children come the week of Nov. 9 to
decorate their trees and to visit with Woody, the
Talking Christmas Tree.
The Festival of Trees is a free event, but donations are certainly encouraged. This is the
museums largest fundraiser of the year and
with the generous and continued support from
the community, the historical society will continue to provide this wonderful holiday tradition for years to come.

Paulding sixth graders Logan Vance (front), Mera Stuchell (middle) and Olivia Radel pick up
trash on the Nature Trails at the Black Swamp Nature Center during their community service day.

Sixth graders spend community


service day at nature center
By Staci Miller
Education specialist
Paulding SWCD
Last week, Paulding sixth graders were out at
the Black Swamp Nature Center helping during
their community service day.
There were over 60 students who helped clean
up the Black Swamp Nature Center that consists
of 51 acres of land. There are 24 acres of woodland, 14 acres of wetlands and six acres of old
meadow as well as the Nature Center building.
The students got to enjoy some time in the
outdoors while helping to maintain the natural
beauty of the trails and the Nature Center building.
The students helped out by picking up litter
and garbage off of the nature trails. They also

raked leaves and cleaned the windows and siding


of the building.
At the end of the afternoon, the students got to
have some fun by going out on the nature trails
for a scavenger hunt. They were challenged to
locate specific types of leaves, identify animal
furs and even find a buckeye tree.
After the students returned from the scavenger hunt, they received a freezer pop as a way of
thanking them for all their help.
It was wonderful to see the students helping
out and making a positive impact in our community.
Thank you to the students and teachers for
who assisted with the clean-up at the Black
Swamp Nature Center, the Paulding SWCD really appreciated the help.

Colorful memories
When Investing, Put
of Dads camera
Time On Your Side
Financial Focus

One of my most vivid memories of fall in Adams County,


Ind., occurred shortly after my
dad purchased an Argus C-3
camera, used mainly in that
time for taking slide pictures.
Although the pictures could be
developed into snapshots, one
of the social joys of the time
would be to organize a slide
show, invite the neighbors in
and have an evening of looking at pictures and enjoying
snacks.
Almost immediately I aspired taking pictures beside
my dad. Ill never forget the
day my dad came home from
work and told me that he wanted to take me to visit someone.
As it turned out, we visited a
couple of the sewing ladies at
the furniture factory where he
worked. They had overheard
him telling one of the other
workers about his camera and
my interest in what he was
doing and they purchased an
early Christmas present for
me, a Brownie Starflash camera.
From that moment on, my
dad and I were inseparable as
photographers. That fall, when
we took pictures of beautiful leaves along the Wabash
River or took a family trip to
Brown County, I was right
there beside him, proudly taking pictures like my dad. Even
though his were color and
mine were black and white, I
was doing what he enjoyed,
later to be carried over to trips
to the Rocky Mountains and to
visit relatives in Nebraska and
Florida.
Some of the most valuable
moments of those special
times occurred when my dad
gave me pointers about taking pictures.
Make sure you frame your

HOMESPUN

By
JIM LANGHAM
pictures with trees or other
things you can find to capture
the subject.
Make sure you center your
pictures with the subject.
When you are taking pictures of people, make sure you
can clearly see their faces and
expressions.
Make it so that when you
look at your pictures, you can
step right into them and feel
like you are actually there.
The list could go on but they
were all lifelong lessons that I
carry with me today when I
take pictures of flowers in my
beloved Limberlost Loblolly,
take pictures to be published

in the newspaper and shooting


family shots of our beloved
family members enjoying life
from eyes to smile to expressions.
In addition to family and nature, my best friend, Meredith
Sprunger, and I took hundreds
of pictures as we visited historic sites, backwoods villages
and sports activities together
in our lifelong friendship.
Just recently Joyce and I
took a ride through Adams
County and I immediately
found myself going to the
sites where I once stood with
my father taking autumn pictures. Sometime ago, I walked
down a trail that he and I once
walked on a spring afternoon
taking pictures of redbud trees
along the river. When I meander through my beloved Limberlost on trails that serve as
reminders of the past, guess
who is walking beside me and
pointing out potential pictures to me?
So there you have it, a bit of
the mystique of my enjoyment
of photography to this day and
a snapshot of my heart where
the memories and words of
my father continue to guide
my picture taking efforts to
this day.

ment years.
The ability to potentially
grow your portfolio sizably is
the key benefit of using time
when you invest but its not
the only benefit. You can also
use time as a target, or a way
to frame a specific investment
goal.
For example, suppose you
have an 8-year-old child
whom you want to send to
college in 10 years. When that
day arrives, wouldnt it be nice
to know that youve been saving money for a decade? One
popular college savings vehicle
is a 529 plan, which has high
contribution limits and allows
tax-free withdrawals, provided
the money is used only for qualified higher education expenses.
(Withdrawals for other purposes
will be taxed and may be subject
to an additional penalty.)
You can also use time as a
signal to adjust your investment
strategy. If youre going to retire in, say, two or three years,
you might want to shift some
but certainly not all of your
assets from growth-oriented
investments to income-producing ones. As you know,
the market will always fluctuate, so you dont want to be
in a position where, once you
retire, you need to start taking
significant withdrawals i.e.,
selling investments when the
market is down. Remember the
time-honored rule of investing:
Buy low, sell high.
When you invest, make the
best possible use of time remember, its the one asset that
cant be replenished.

PLUMBING AND HEATING

turn to the experts

By Phil Recker
Edward Jones Advisor
Now that were well into autumn, the days are getting noticeably shorter. The change in
seasons reminds us that time is
passing and its important to
use that time wisely. When
used well, in fact, time can
be your greatest gift in many
walks of life and thats certainly true when you invest.
To illustrate the importance
of time, lets look at a scenario.
Suppose you start saving for
retirement when you are 25. If
you invest $3,000 per year in
a tax-deferred vehicle, such as

a traditional IRA, and you hypothetically earn a 7% annual


return, you will have accumulated more than $640,000 after
40 years, when you reach 65
and are ready to retire. (Keep
in mind that you will be taxed
on withdrawals.)
Now, though, suppose you
wait until youre 55 before you
start saving seriously for retirement. If you put that same
$3,000 per year in that same
IRA, earning that same hypothetical 7% return, youd only
end up with slightly more than
$44,000 after 10 years, when
you reach 65. And to accumulate the $640,000 you would
have gotten after 40 years by
contributing just $3,000 per
year, you would have had to
put in about $43,500 per year
for the 10 years between ages
55 and 65.
Clearly, its a lot easier to
come up with $3,000 per year
than $43,500. So, to accumulate the resources you need
for a comfortable retirement,
youll help your cause greatly
by saving and investing as
early in your working life as
possible and then continue
to save and invest right up to,
and even during, your retire-

Vantage looks at
financial future

By ERIN COX
DHI Media Correspondent
VAN WERT - The Vantage Career Center Board of Education looked toward the future during its meeting on Thursday,
Oct. 8.
Treasurer Laura Peters presented the five-year forecast for
2016-20. Vantage will have a levy on the ballot in 2017 and it
would end in 2018 if it did not renew. The five-year forecast
projects revenue in the worst case scenario so the school can
plan as needed and remain conservative, but also showed how
the forecast would be affected with the levy figures as well.
In 16, 17 and 18 we are spending less than we are bringing in and then in 19 and 20 it shows we are in the red and
again that has to do with the levy, Peters said.
With the levy figured into the forecast as passing, Peters reported the district would continue to be in the black.
Your carryover does continue to increase, however in 2020
it does start to reduce just a little bit, Peters said. However,
you do have a healthy carry over and there could be some talks
if you want to bring another program into the facility or things
to help bring other programs in for students.
A resolution was passed to acknowledge the name change
of the Vantage Career Center Adult Education Department
to the Ohio Technical Center at Vantage Career Center. The
change is being made as requested by the Ohio Department
of Higher Education as it works to provide labor market-driven, post-secondary workforce education and training in 91 career-technical planning districts throughout the state.
Its been a good September, Pete Prichard, the adult education director, said. Both our medical classes and police
academy have started. We almost doubled in the amount of
enrollment this year compared to last year.
In other business, the board approved:
The Memorandum of Agreement between Vantage Teachers Organization and Vantage Career Center for changes in
the evaluation system.
Supplemental contracts for Robin Burns as the banquet
supervisor, and Amelia Miller and Patricia Rodman as STNA
sheck-off/clinical supervisor for Health Technology.
The employment of the following adult education instructors as needed: Cynthia Krizan as a career coach (WSOS), and
Kip Wright, Shane Lee and James Bennett as instructors.

AFTER SCHOOL FUN The 21st Century After School Program students at Paulding Elementary recently enjoyed a cooperative
game with the Omnikin ball and hula hoops. This after school program combines homework help, tutoring and hands-on learning
activities Monday-Thursday each week. For additional information, contact program coordinator Ashley Shepherd at 419-399-4711
or site coordinator Jan Kohart at 419-399-4656.

Wayne Trace board approves


five-year financial forecast
HAVILAND Financial reports were shared by treasurer
Lori Davis during the Wayne
Trace school board meeting.
Reports including the five-year
forecast and the impact of the
upcoming 0.75 percent income
tax renewal were highlighted
and discussed during the meeting.
We will be in the black in
2016 but we will be in the red in
2017, even when we bring back
in the revenue if the levy passes, said Davis.
After hearing her report, the
board approved the five-year
forecast as presented by Davis.
Superintendent Steve Arnold
reported to the board that work
with the teachers union on student growth measures continues and preliminary state testing
results are encouraging.
The superintendent commented that results for the AIR
and PARCC tests look favorable for Wayne Trace for 201415 with final or official results
coming in January.
Concerning teachers union
and student growth measures,
Arnold highlighted how several months of work went into
coming to an agreement on
state growth measures with the
teachers union.
I think its fair. Theyre being put in place for this year and
in June we will re-evaluate it,
Arnold said.
The free and reduced lunch
program is available at the district schools and parents are
encouraged to turn in the appropriate paperwork at any time for
theses meals.
Arnold also expressed to the
board how teachers are keeping residents of the district informed through what is being

called Whos Telling Your Story? This new outreach is on the


districts website at www.waynetrace.org/Administration/
WhosTellingYourStory where
stories of interest can be read.
In other business, the board:

ANTWERP Better security lighting along with brighter
lights as a cost cutting measure for some of the school
facilities were part of the
technology report during the
Antwerp Local school board
meeting last Thursday.
The lighting in both gymnasiums will soon be replaced
with LED lights. The old style
450 watt bulbs will be replaced with a more efficient
160 watt bulb. The lighting
will be programmed to turn
off automatically when no one

is in the room.
As a part of the overall security of the school, recent
lighting updates have been
added in the parking lot, bus
garage and other areas of the
campus.
It was also noted that Owens Electric of Montpelier will
be replacing the old wooden
light poles at Archer Field
with newer structures recently
purchased from another Ohio
school.

Antwerp Council okays EMS updates, insurance


By JOE SHOUSE
Progress Staff Writer
ANTWERP - Health care for
2016, the continuation of the LMI
survey and the purchase of two cots
for the EMS ambulances were approved during the Antwerp village
council meeting on Monday night.
Randy Shaffer, representing the
Antwerp EMS, presented to council
the opportunity to purchase two integrated patient transport cots to be
installed in their two rescue squads.
The current cots being used are obsolete and need to be replaced. Shafer
said that one of the cots being used is
30 years old and the other is eight.
What we are using now is old
and heavy and is difficult to maneuver. With a patient on one of the
cots, it sometimes takes three EMTs
to move them from one location to
the squad, Shafer said.
The cost of the two cots and
two stair chairs is approximately
$77,000. The board agreed to purchase the much needed equipment
and passed the motion unanimously
by entering into a two-year loan
obligation whereby paying approx-

imately $19,437.03 four times.


Following a meeting with the finance committee to review the renewal of health coverage for 2016,
the board unanimously voted to
accept the recommendation by the
committee. With the current policy,
keeping its current coverage with the
same deductibles and out-of-pocket
limits, the premium was projected to
increase nearly 16 percent.
After reviewing several choices
submitted by First Insurance of Defiance, it was agreed to propose raising the deductible and out-of-pocket
limits, but to keep Anthem Blue
Cross as the provider. The choice
of raising the deductible to $1,000
for individuals and $2,000 for family and out-of-pocket to $2,000 per
individual and $4,000 per family
would keep the premium at or under
2015 premium rate.
The confidential income survey
has reached its third round of mailings. There have been 220 surveys
returned and 80 more are needed
to make the report complete. Of
the surveys submitted, 123 were
deemed as low to moderate income

(LMI) and 97 were non-LMI which


equates to 55 percent. The threshold
is to meet 51 percent which is being
surpassed at this time. A door-todoor canvassing was scheduled for
Tuesday, Oct. 22 in order to increase
the number of needed surveys.
The new village Christmas lights
have been ordered and will be
picked up later this week. The lights
will be displayed on the light poles
on Main Street and throughout the
village.
Several ordinances received first
and second readings including the:
First reading authorizing the
village to utilize a contract for utility
services provided to property owners who rent that would increase
water deposits from $100 to $150 to
be effective Jan. 1.
Second reading establishing a
schedule of fees, charges and expenses and collection procedures
for zoning permits, amendments,
appeals, variances, conditional use
permits and other matters relating to
the administration and enforcement
of zoning in the village and regulating the fees paid to the zoning in-

spector for the service.


Second reading to amend an
ordinance and any amendment imposing a municipal income tax in the
village.
Second reading establishing a
policy on the reimbursement to the
village for emergency medical technician training cost in certain circumstances and adopting an agreement for the same purpose.
A third reading for a resolution
accepting the amount and rates as
determined by the budget commission and authorizing the necessary
tax levies and certifying them to
the county auditor. A motion to accept the third reading was made and
passed unanimously.
The rules were suspended and
the following legislative items were
passed as an emergency:
Authorizing the village fiscal
officer to transfer $8,000 from the
general fund to the street lighting
fund.
Authorized the village fiscal
officer to transfer $55,000 from the
general fund to the police fund.

Williams Street reopening,


new water meters coming
By SAMANTHA
HABERN
Correspondent
PAULDING A street reopening, discussion of new
projects and a skatepark update were on Paulding Village
Councils agenda Monday,
Oct. 19.
Williams Street (U.S. 127)
is to be done and reopened on
Oct. 30.
Pauldings Trick-or-Treat is
scheduled from 5-7 p.m. Oct.
31.
The committee as a whole
reports were read and approved
dealing with two projects.
The first is the U.S. 127
and Gasser Road (Road 144)
intersection improvements,
with a preliminary estimate
of $676,000. The next step
is looking into financial and
funding ideas.
The second project was the
water meter replacement project. The village was given a
grant of $500,000 and a no-interest loan of $300,000 for this
project.
Most of the meters havent
been updated since the 1960s

with some being older than 60


years, and replacement parts
are not available anymore.
This causes the meter to give
inaccurate readings and the
loss of revenue. The new meters will improve efficiency
and will help with spotting
leaks.
A representative of the
parks committee updated the
council on fire damage at the
skate park following an arson.
She presented before and after
pictures, as well as pictures
that showed what was able to
be salvaged.
Wheelbarrows, shovels and
signs were donated, possible security cameras may be
donated, and several Paulding Middle School students
showed up to help move
stones. Some students were at
the parks committee meeting
and helped design a possible
new ramp.
The representative also
asked about putting a light on
a nearby utility pole to help
prevent something like this
from happening in the future.
The next step will be to get the

estimated cost on the replacement/repair and to have her


meet with the recreation committee.
Council recognized the middle school students and teachers, in groups of 50, who all
did community service around
the town recently. Mayor Greg
White stated that the students
worked their tails off and
that they did a super job. He
hopes for this to become an
annual thing.
Council approved the planning commission report,
which will allow Clint and
Chad Manz to put up storage
facilities on Lot 60, with the
entrance being on Baldwin
Street. A public meeting will
be held to discuss this on Monday, Oct. 26 at 5:30 pm. The
council will put together an
ordinance by the next meeting,
Nov. 2.
The council heard the first
reading of Ordinance 1511-15
to renew employment of Michael C. Jones as village solicitor.
Jones, formerly a Paulding
resident, now lives in Powell,

north of Columbus.
The council heard the second reading of Ordinance
1507-15, amending ordinances 1239-00, 1320-04 and
1468-13, regarding municipal
income tax. This is in response
to House Bill 5, which has
minor changes to the municipal income tax information.
The new village website is
up and running.
Several committee meetings
were scheduled:
Salary and allowance
committee meeting today, Oct.
21 at 10:30 a.m. dealing with
insurance.
Utility committee meeting
on Thursday, Oct. 22 at 5:30
p.m. to discuss drainage, meters and other issues.
Financial committee
meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 27
at 5:30 p.m.
Craig Riedel, a Republican
candidate for the 82nd District
of the State House of Representatives, introduced himself
to the council. Riedel will be
on the March primary ballot.
The next council meeting
will be on Nov. 2 at 6:30 p.m.

Capt. David Cline of the Paulding County Sheriffs Office is the countys coordinator for Ohio
Project Lifesaver. The program is used to locate at-risk individuals who may wander off as a result
of a medical condition or issue. The receiver he is holding can be set to a specific frequency to
pick up signals from a transmitter assigned to a program participant.

Project Lifesaver under way

By DENISE GEBERS
Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING In late September, a 6-yearold boy became the first participant in the
countys Ohio Project Lifesaver program.
And local officials are ready to assist him if
necessary.
Project Lifesaver is an international program headquartered in Virginia that assists in
locating missing people who were predetermined to be at risk for wandering.
Locally, Capt. David Cline of the Paulding
County Sheriffs Office is the program coordinator. He and deputies Bill Lyons and Gary
Dietrick have been trained to use equipment
the county received via a federal grant two
years ago. There are two transmitters and two
receivers plus 30-day batteries.
Cline said the youngster was a participant
in the Defiance County program for a couple years. He recently moved into the county
with his family and on Sept. 18 he was fitted
with a wrist transmitter. A handheld receiver
was programmed to monitor that frequency.
Should the child who is autistic, wander off,
he can be located by radio waves.
In an event such as this, a caregiver is to
notify the sheriffs office as soon as the participant is missing. A deputy will come to the
last known location and deploy the receiver.
Beeps are emitted, increasing in volume as
the receiver nears the transmitter.
Radio transmitters work better in inclement weather than GPS, remarked Cline.
When conditions are right, they can be
picked up in a three-to-five-mile range, although it is generally one mile.

Ive never been able to find


an exact number of Ohios native plant species, but its in
excess of 1,800, if you take
into account trees and shrubs,
perennials, biennials, annuals
and aquatics.
The list of each of these
types is so long that youd
never have to plant a single hybrid or non-native and
could still have a gorgeous
garden. Many landscape designers specialize in creating
native-only gardens, and for
good reasons.
Native plants have some
advantages over non-natives,
with the biggest one being that
they are well-adapted to their
own unique environment, thus
requiring less care and being
more tolerant of extreme conditions that occur from time to
time in a particular area. That
can mean less watering, fewer
pest and disease problems, and
theyre more beneficial for the
native wildlife.
When the term native is
used among horticulturists, it
is generally thought to mean
a plant that is endemic to a
specific location. For example, garlic mustard grows very
well here in Ohio and is a native plant - but only in Europe.
There, its a moderate grower
that is integrated into the natural forest flora. Here, it is a
non-native and is on Ohios
Invasive Species List.
Garlic mustard is problematic in the eastern U.S. because
it chokes out the native plants
that local wildlife depends on
for food. It was probably inadvertently introduced to North
America on the soles of boots
or in the soil of transplanted
plants and is extremely difficult to eradicate once established.
This is just one of the problems associated with growing non-native plants, and
not all non-natives are such
thugs. But Ohio has so many
interesting natives, we really
should include more of them
in our backyard gardens and
be mindful of the non-natives
that can be a nuisance.
Though orchids are the
second largest plant group in
the world, with over 22,000
known species, we dont generally think of Ohio as being
conducive to growing them. In
reality, we have 46 native species. Twenty-two of those are

endangered or threatened, and
four of them are extirpated,
meaning they havent been
seen here in 20 years or more.
According to the USDA
Plants Database, only one
orchid is native to Paulding
County a white Nodding
Ladies Tresses orchid (Spiranthes cernua). I have never
encountered it in my many
treks through the woods, but
I purchased one at a native
plants nursery many years ago.
It was doing quite well in my

shade garden until one morning it disappeared completely.


It was the strangest thing one
day it was there and the next
it appeared to have been dug
up and taken. Im certain that
an animal of some sort was to
blame.
Last year, I purchased a related species, Fragrant Ladies
Tresses (Spiranthes odorata)
that is similar in appearance
and its been blooming for
over a month now. Most orchid blooms do last for quite a
while and on chilly nights, Im
protecting it to see just how
long it will stay in bloom.
There are other orchids, of
course, that are hardy here
and a few are readily available
from native plant nurseries.
Ohio has quite a diverse ecology and youd be surprised
at what you might find if you
took a walk in the woods or
along a creek bank.

Wayne Trace voters eye


income tax renewal

By JOE SHOUSE
Progress Staff Writer
HAVILAND Like many
voters across the Buckeye
state the Wayne Trace community will join them as they
express their voting rights
on Nov. 3. The Wayne Trace
district voters will have the
opportunity to go to the voting polls in order to cast their
vote concerning the 0.75 income tax renewal levy. The
five-year renewal will not
increase the tax rate for the
home owner and will permit
the school district to continue
to maintain its current academi c, co-curricular, and extracurricular programs.
In a nut shell, the renewal will allow us to maintain
current programming including new programs we have
started with the wind turbine
money, said Wayne Trace
superintendent Steve Arnold.

The levy generates $846,000


annually and, according to Arnold, 70 percent of the funding is for general operations
and 30 percent for permanent
improvements. In addition to
operations and improvements,
the passing of the levy will allow the board of education to
reduce one mill that tax payers
are currently paying on real
estate taxes toward the building fund project debt.
By doing this it will save
land owners approximately
$163,000 per year over the
course of the debt, Arnold explained. We are excited about
being able to reduce the millage. Its a way of saying thank
you to the voters and supporters of the Wayne Trace district.
Improvements at all three
campuses continue to be carried out. The maintenance and
upgrades at the buildings and
facilities is ongoing and Ar-

nold believes these improvements have been a positive for


both staff and students.
The passage of the renewal
will assure the district remains
in strong financial shape for the
foreseeable future. Spending
the districts money for the education of our young people is
our mission, but we also know
the importance of staying within our means, Arnold said.
While the levy monies are
a valuable resource for the
overall operation and improvements within the district,
Superintendent Arnold was
quick to point out the value of
receiving funds as a result of
the wind turbines.
The wind turbine funds
that we receive total $725,000
per year, and this revenue allows us to have a balance of
teachers at both elementary
schools. A few years ago we
had three fewer teachers at

in 2013, and co-funded by the Ohio School Facilities Commission, requires setting aside $225,000
annually specifically for permanent improvement projects to maintain the facility.
The 0.7 mil renewal levy will appear on the
November general election ballot. The owner of a
home appraised at $100,000 pays only $9.57 per
year; owners of a $50,000 home would see $4.78
per year as taxes for the 0.7-mill renewal levy.
This renewal means no new taxes.

improvement levy renewal, please contact superintendent Staci Kaufman at 419-623-9650.
Should your organization desire a presentation
of levy facts and student success stories, please

news about how our students Get the Edge with

Grover Hill, and today we


have the same number at both
Grover Hill and Payne This
money has also allowed us
to hire additional tutors and
teachers aides, which provide
a great service for both our
students and our classroom
teachers, said Arnold.
The Wayne Trace Digital
Academy is a result of the
wind turbine yearly contributions and has been created to
help close the gap between
the higher achieving students
at Wayne Trace and those who
are struggling in some unique
or challenging situation.
The Academy is an opportunity for students in grades
7-12 to benefit by earning
credits towards high school
graduation. Several students,
due to their situation, can take
classes through the Academy
that allows them to keep pace
with other students. Some students will earn college credit
as well. The exciting thing
about the Digital Academy is
how it accommodates a wide
variety of needs for students
who may be in much different
positions academically, said
Arnold.
Another area of benefit to
students in gradea 3-12 is the
access to computers on a daily basis. The updating of the
technology infrastructure to
provide a 21st century public
education at Wayne Trace is
vital. The wind turbine funding allows for this technology
benefit.
Other benefits that are felt in
the classroom as a result of the
wind turbine money is having
additional educational programs, including transitional
kindergarten; cross-categorical classrooms at both elementary and secondary levels; and
several instructional tutors and
aides at all three buildings.
I want to emphasize to the
residents and tax payers of our
great school district that we
are using tax dollars as well
as the wind turbine monies to
better serve our students and
their educational experience.
Maintaining our current programming while adding new
opportunities and services for
learning will always be the
goal of the board of education, concluded Arnold.

hance the educational environment, said first-year Antwerp


superintendent Dr. Martin Miller.
The current tax period will expire in December, therefore, the
school district is seeking support
for the levy renewal that will run
for five additional years. If these
monies were to be received
through a property tax levy the
amount would equate to a 7.12
mill tax rate.
The levy generates approximately $550,000 annually which
equates to nearly 10 percent of
the districts budget. Monies
raised are used to pay the day-today operating expenses according to district secretary Kristine
Stuart.
These funds are used for the
general fund operating expenses.
It is important to the continued
success of our district to keep
this tax revenue in place. Without these funds, our five-year
forecast projects that expenses
will exceed revenue in all five
years, said Stuart.
With the passage of the levy
five years ago, several positives
have taken place within the district. The expansion of the kindergarten program along with
additional preschool units have
been maintained along with other educational positives.
During the past five years,
funds from the levy have been
utilized to expand our kindergarten program to an all-day/every-day program. We have also
added additional preschool units.
Funds have also been utilized to
increase our wireless infrastructure and upgrades to our computer offerings to include devices for all students in grades 9-12
and mobile devices for our K-8
students. Within the past year,
we have upgraded our security
cameras and the near completion
of switching our outdoor lighting over to LED lighting which
will provide lighting at one-third
the cost of the old lighting system, commented Miller.
Looking to the future and
hopefully within the next two
years, Miller and his staff are
planning with the passing of the
levy, additional expansion in the
area of computers.
Within the next two years, we
hope to expand our offering of
computer devices to our middle
school students and strengthen
our utilization of e-books in core
academic areas and library services. We are also looking into
ways to improve our heating and
cooling energy efficiency, and
convert over to more energy efficient LED lighting in our gymnasiums and auditorium. Improvements and enhancements
to our outdoor sports facilities

are ongoing in conjunction with


our athletic department and athletic boosters, said Miller.
Other improvements that have
been completed through the income tax levy are numerous and
include the purchase of new text
books, reduced class size by hiring additional elementary and
middle school teachers, providing tutoring during the school
year, providing professional development training to help support staff and updating science
labs with new equipment and
software.
At the same time the district
is seeking ways to better spend
their tax dollars they are also
aware of the importance of reducing costs within the district.
Several cost cutting measures
have been made and will continue to be made in the future.
Some of these measures included the hiring of special education teachers through the Educational Service Center (ESC);
implementing the single bus
route; joining consortiums in order to reduce utilities, materials
and supply costs; renegotiating
service contracts with service
providers; continuing to seek
ways to reduce energy costs;
upgrading the heating and air
conditioning system to perform
efficiently; evaluating software
usage to eliminate outdated software and to make sure current
software is being used effectively.
Additionally, the board and
staff at Antwerp has and will
continue to actively seek grant
opportunities for the classroom
and the district with the assistance of teachers, administrators,
and the Western Buckeye ESC.
The list of improvements can
be ongoing and for most districts
like Antwerp the wish list is always lengthy when it comes to
improvements, upgrades and
changes.
Another important area is
sports facilities both indoors and
out.
The enhancements to those
types of facilities are ongoing
and we work in conjunction
with the athletic department and
boosters to do what we can to
provide the best possible facility, said Miller.
According to the superintendent the academic excellence
and positive momentum within
the district is a result of the tremendous support provided by
the tax payers of the district.
We are grateful to our voters for their past approval of
this income tax levy and are
hopeful that our voters will cast
their ballot during the Nov. 3
election, said the superintendent.

NATIONAL MERIT COMMENDED STUDENT Scott Wenninger is

Commissioners Journal September
21, 2015
This 21st day of September, 2015,
the Board of County Commissioners
met in regular session with the following members present: Roy Klopfenstein,
Tony Zartman, Mark Holtsberry, and
Nola Ginter, Clerk.
MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS
County Auditor Claudia Fickel met
with the commissioners to discuss the
feasibility of creating new funds to track
ditch improvements. She then updated
the commissioners on the 2014 audit
and the findings.
County Engineer Travis McGarvey
and Aaron Timm Timm presented the
bill from Loop Paving for the pavement
repair projects done at the Sheriffs Office and the County Court Annex.
Brion Hanenkratt, 9-1-1; Chris
Hanes and Bob Bennett, P&R Communications Service Inc.; Bill Hanak,
PEVS superintendent; Steve Arnold,
WT superintendent; Martin Miller, Antwerp superintendent; Travis McGarvey
and Aaron Timm, Engineers Office
Hanenkratt opened this meeting by explaining the purpose was to discuss the
radio communication system.
He noted the current trunking system
was put into place 14 years ago with a

grant obtained through Paulding County


EMA. Hanenkratt also pointed out how
much more advanced technology has
gotten since the radios/equipment were
purchased.
He reported there doesnt appear to
be any grant dollars available to law enforcement for an upgrade; however, he
encouraged the superintendents in attendance to search for educational grants.
Hanenkratt further stated the mobile
and handheld radio units currently in use
are no longer being manufactured and
certain repair parts are not available. He
noted every entity represented, along
with township trustees, need to formulate a plan to update. The Sheriffs
Office has already begun to make the
transition.
Hanenkratt introduced Chris Hanes
of P&R Communications Services.
Hanes took the floor and further explained the narrow banding from 25 to
12.5 was done in 2013. He said transitioning from analog to digital allows
each transmitter to handle twice the
radio capabilities. Hanes suggested a
migration from current to new over
the next two to three years to better distribute the cost over two years of budgets.
He also informed the group assembled that P&R will assist with grant

searching.
Hanenkratt pointed out the sheriffs
cruisers already have GPS tracking
and asked if that would be a feature the
schools may want to consider for their
buses. Bennett stated the current radios
have probably 18-24 months of life.
The superintendents from the three
county schools reported the number
of buses and handheld radios they currently have. Arnold (WT) asked for a
ballpark estimate per radio and Hanes
said a high estimate would be $1,000
for each mobile radio, $800 for each
handheld. He also encouraged the entities involved shop around for estimates.
Bennett commented there could be
savings if ordered in bulk. Klopfenstein
highly recommended that all entities be
on board with one provider to make service and maintenance easier.
Hanes and Bennett agreed that individual assessments would be in order to
have a better understanding the needs of
each entity, as well as the use of the radios, in order to provide a more accurate
cost.
Phillip Jackson, INSBIT, met with
the commissioners to discuss a county
cybersecurity policy/plan. They reviewed a model policy from CORSA
and made some necessary changes. The
policy will be forwarded to the Prosecu-

tor and CORSA for the review.

the sheriff. Im glad we can
bring this drug-abuse curriculum back to the county.
He noted that with the countys current battle with drug
abuse it is good to get into the
schools and teach students to
make good decisions, not only
about substance abuse, but also
bullying and safety concerns.
Im excited about it, Sheriff Landers continued. Its
good to get an officer in uniform back in the classroom so

kids know we are there to help


them.
In accordance with DARE
requirements, Deputy Mendez

He has been with the local

SPORTS
Fourth down, turnovers cost Wayne Trace
By KEVIN
WANNEMACHER
Sportswriter
HAVILAND Hicksville
converted six of seven fourth
down attempts and took advantage of five Wayne Trace
turnovers as the Aces recorded
a 36-22 victory over the Raiders on Senior Night at Raider
Field.
The Aces turned three fourth
down situations into touchdowns in improving their
season record to 6-2 overall.
Hicksville also kept alive an
outside chance at a conference
title as the Aces move to 3-1 in
the league, one game behind
Tinora and Ayersville.
Hicksville converted a
fourth and five at the Raider
seven yard line into a touchdown pass from Garrett Crall
to Dillion Fuller in the second
quarter, taking a 13-8 lead just
before halftime.
Facing a fourth and six early in the third stanza, Crall
tossed a 21-yard scoring strike
to Travis Lysaght that put the
Aces on top 20-8.
The Aces then sealed the
contest with a 16-yard pass
from Crall to Payton Tunis on
a fourth and seven late in the
fourth quarter.
It was a night that Wayne
Trace made enough plays to

be in position for the victory,


but also enough mistakes to
come up short.
The guys played hard,
commented Raider acting
head coach Mike Speice. We
got behind early and then we
fought our way back. In the
second half, we went down
two scores and we still had a
chance to tie the game there in
the fourth quarter. It was one
of those nights where we had
opportunities to make plays
but we just come up a little bit
short.
Five Raider turnovers also
plagued the Wayne Trace efforts, miscues that led to 21
Hicksville points.
You cant turn the ball over
five times, Speice continued.
I am proud of the guys and
the effort they gave though.
They never gave up and we
continued to battle all night
long.
After Hicksville struck first
on a five-yard plunge by Fuller, Wayne Trace answered early in the second stanza.
Senior quarterback Gabe
Wobler hooked up with Seth
Saylor for a seven-yard touchdown pass that got the Raiders on the scoreboard. Wobler
found Cole Shepherd on the
two-point conversion pass to
put Wayne Trace on top 8-7

with 10:48 left in the half.


Later, trailing 20-8, Shepherd then pulled the Raiders
within 20-14 on a 51-yard
scamper at the 5:30 mark of
the third quarter.
Hicksville widened the margin to 23-14 with 37.5 seconds
left in the third quarter as junior Logen Neidhardt converted a 23-yard field goal.
The Aces pushed the margin
to 30-14 on a six-yard run by
Fuller but Wayne Trace wasnt
done.
Shepherd responded with
his second long touchdown
run, this time a 40-yard sprint
to pull Wayne Trace within
30-22 with 6:14 left.
Wayne Traces defense
came up with a stop, getting
the ball back to the Raiders at
their own 23-yard line. However, the Raiders committed
their fifth turnover of the night
two plays later and Hicksville
took advantage.
The Aces put together a
five-play, 33-yard scoring that
sealed the victory when Crall
hooked up with Tunis on the
16-yard touchdown pass.
They were able to take advantage of our turnovers and
you have to give them credit
for that, concluded Speice.
We will get back to work
next week and try to get better

as we prepare for Tinora. I am
proud of our effort tonight and
I couldnt have asked for them
to play any harder.

with 189 rushing yards on 38
carries for Hicksville while
Crall rumbled for 96 yards on
21 tries.

Bearcats score 50 in first half


for easy win over Paulding
By JOE SHOUSE
Sportswriter
SPENCERVILLE When you are
struggling to move the ball and put
points on the board, the football season
can be one of frustration each Friday
night. And for the Paulding Panthers,
playing in a very competitive league like
the Northwest Conference it has been a
real challenge week after week.
There are certainly no easy ones. This
conference has so many good teams and
the one we played tonight is a great team.
We still have two more games to play and
we are going to continue to work hard in
practice and try to get better, said Paulding head coach Tyler Arend.
On Friday night, the Panthers traveled
to Spencerville and the Bearcats certainly lived up to their ranking. Scoring all
their points in the first half, the fourthranked Cats sprinted out to an early
lead and coasted to a 50-16 win over the
winless Panthers. The first quarter score
had the Bearcats in control 30-0 and the
halftime score ballooned to 50-0.
They jumped on us early and we
never recovered. Spencerville is the real
deal. They have it all and should make a
nice run in the tournament. They are big,
strong and quick, commented Arend.
After the game, the first-year coach
told his troops as they gathered near the
end zone how they need to stay together, not like this feeling, continue to work
hard and get better; to use the Spencerville team as one they (Paulding) want to
be like in the future.
The Bearcats, a team that keeps the
ball on the ground, answered with seven
touchdowns on the night including two

from conference rushing leader Zach


Goecke and three from Calvin Wilson.
Goecke finished the night with 10 totes
for 206 yards and scored on runs of 62
and 44 yards. For his teammate, Wilson
collected 135 yards on eight carries including touchdown runs of 2, 68 and 11
yards.
For the Panthers, two fourth quarter scoring plays kept the maroon-andwhite from going scoreless for the fourth
consecutive week. An 11-play drive
covering 70 yards was capped off with
a one-yard plunge by junior Cameron
Doster. A bruising runner, Doster was
recently inserted in the Panther backfield
and responded with 62 rushing yards on
15 carries.
We are trying to find the right personnel in the right positions. Cameron is a
big kids who loves the game and he has
done a good job making the transition,
Arend said.
Pauldings second score came in the
fourth quarter after the Panther kicking
team recovered an onside kick at midfield. The five-play possession resulted
in a 34-yard scamper by Preston Ingol
with 6:35 remaining. Ingol finished the
night with 88 rushing yards to lead the
Panther offense.
Following the Panther touchdown, the
kicking team did its job again by recovering their second consecutive onside
kick at midfield. The series stalled after
just five plays and the Bearcats were
back on offense with just over three minutes remaining.
The red-and-black looked poised to
run the clock out, but on a first down
play and just 10 yards from paydirt, Pan-

ther freshman Drew Lumpkins scooped


up a Spencerville fumble and returned
it to the Panther 35 yard line with just
under a minute remaining. A four-yard
run and a 28-yard pass play had the ball
resting at the three yard line when time
expired.
Paulding will be at home for their final
home game this Friday when they play
Columbus Grove, who is coming off a
38-30 loss at the hands of Allen East. For
the Bearcats, a road date at Allen East to
play the dangerous Mustangs in on the
agenda.

Rams take 8th grade


GMC volleyball title
By KEVIN WANNEMACHER
Sportswriter
ANTWERP Tinora won the 2015
Green Meadows Conference eighth grade
volleyball tournament championship on
Saturday at Antwerp High School.
The Rams defeated Fairview in
straight sets in the championship round
to take the title.
In the opening round, Antwerp
knocked off Holgate in two sets while
the Rams got past Edgerton in three
games. Fairview defeated Hicksville in
two games as well and Wayne Trace was
the other first round winner, getting past
Ayersville in three sets.
Semifinal action saw Tinora slip past
the host Archers in three sets and Fairview held off Wayne Trace in three sets
to set up the title match.

Crall was also 10 of 17


passing for 130 yards as the
Aces totaled 415 yards of total
offense and 21 first downs in
the contest.
Shepherd totaled 95 rushing yards on eight carries for
Wayne Trace, which falls
to 4-4 overall and 3-2 in the
Green Meadows Conference.
The Raider senior also completed a pass to Eli Sinn for 36
yards in the second quarter.
Wobler ended the night 8 of
18 passing for 61 yards. Seth
Saylor picked up four receptions for the Raiders with Sinn
adding three. Wayne Trace
finished with 231 yards and 10
first downs.
SENIOR NIGHT A dozen
Raider football players participated in their final game
at Raider Field Friday night.
Those players who will not
play a varsity football game
at home again include Gabe
Wobler, Noah Stoller, Luke
Miller, Cole Shepherd, Austin Winebrenner, Jake Baksa,
Scott Wenninger, Corey Davis, Clint Sinn, Connor Arend,
Austin Kuhn and Justin Speice.
While it was their final

home game, it was also a special night for the Raider dozen
in one of the classiest things
the Raider coaching staff
could have done. The players
were joined by their fathers
for the pre-game festivities
both on the field and in the
locker room, providing special
memories for both the players
and fathers and reminding everybody that this is for the student-athlete in a way that will
be remembered.
RAM REPORT Next up
for Wayne Trace is highly
touted Tinora, which currently
stands third in the Division VI,
Region 20 computer rankings.
The Rams are currently 6-1
overall and 4-0 in the Green
Meadows Conference. Tinora averages 37 points on the
season per game while giving
up 11. The green and white
has posted wins over Liberty
Center (31-3), Delta (24-14),
Holgate (48-6), Edgerton (4715), Hicksville (47-6) and
Fairview (42-7). The lone
Ram loss came in week three
at Wauseon (28-14). Tinora
is coming off of the easy win
over the Apaches as the Rams
did not play in week eight.

Archers outpoint
Aces 52-34 in JV
offensive showdown
By JOE SHOUSE
Sportswriter
HICKSVILLE It was a big scoring night for the JV Archers
who put up 52 points against Hicksville. The Archers needed
those points because the Aces lit up the scoreboard with 34 of
their own. With the win the blue-and-white improved to 5-1 on
the season.
It was a hard fought win for us but the guys responded well
and we had some big plays to help keep us in front, said head
coach Drew Altimus.
Junior Mike Taylor had a big night carrying the ball. Taylor
managed 114 yards on 14 totes and four scores with runs of 2,
4, 2 and 42 yards.
When the Archers werent scoring on the ground, it was
quarterback Keaton Altimus doing his magic in the air. The
freshman signal caller was 14 of 27 for 297 yards and four
touchdown strikes.
Altimus looked to three of his teammates for his scoring.
Dylan Peters had a big night with five catches for 172 yards
and two scores. The Altimus-Peters duo connected on end zone
strikes of 10 and 85 yards.
Trey Mills chipped in with a 30-yard touchdown catch along
with two 2-point conversions. Rounding out the scoring was
Josh Poulson with an 11-yard touchdown reception. Mills finished the night with 63 yards in the air and Poulson added 52
yards on five snags.
Defensively for the winners, Jake Ryan collected an interception as did Dylan Peters and Sayge Heslet had a fumble
recovery.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22

HAVILAND Visiting Antwerp made quick
work of Wayne Trace in Green Meadows Conference volleyball action Thursday night at the
Palace as the visiting Archers rolled to a 25-23,
25-15 and 25-16 win over the Raiders.
The Archers jumped in front early in each of
the three games as Antwerp improved to 17-5
overall and wrapped up GMC play with a record
of 5-2.
It was a total team effort for the Archers according to head coach Amy Hammer.
The girls played well tonight, noted the Archer mentor. We did a good job of getting off
to good starts in each set. It was a good match
to have and this is a good effort to come off of
heading into tournament next week.
Meanwhile, Wayne Trace head coach Angie
Speice noted the Raiders need to continue to try
and improve their consistency.
We had another slow start tonight, Speice
commented. That is something we have tried to
improve at but we just did not start games well.
Antwerp is a very good team and we knew that
coming in. They play good, smart volleyball.
The Archers started the opening set by scoring
11 of the first dozen points, getting two Kiana
Recker aces along with three Rachel Williamson
kills. Recker and Sydney Sheedy also had slams
for the Archers in the run.
However, Wayne Trace would make things
interesting.
Trailing 16-7, the Raiders picked up a block
and an ace from Danae Myers along with two
Erin Mohr kills to get within 16-12.
After Antwerp pushed the margin back to 2114 on a Recker kill, Wayne Trace trimmed the
deficit to 21-18 following a pair of Mohr slams.
