Parks district to acquire canal land

Progress Editor
PAULDING Nearly 200
hundred acres of Miami Canal
property in Paulding County
may soon be under Paulding
County Parks District management.
Last week, three Ohio Department of Natural Resources
(ODNR) officials met at the
Paulding County Courthouse
with parks board chairman
Damien Morales, Probate/Juvenile Judge John DeMuth and
county Engineer Travis McGarvey. They discussed steps
needed for the parks district to
acquire the land from ODNR.
By the end of the meeting,
the state officials said they will
start working on a lease agreement for the short term, and also
will initiate the process to deed
the canal property to the parks
The parks district, which reorganized a year ago, is dedicated to the advancement of public
parks, recreation and conservation. Board members have been
taking steps to acquire several
parcels, such as the old canal.

ODNRs Office of Real Estate,
told the group that canal real estate issues are a challenge. The
state acquired land for the canals
in the Act of 1825; however, the

state seldom recorded its property interests in county courthouses. ODNR assumed responsibility for all state-owned canal
lands in 1989, and the Division

of Water operates all hydraulically active sections.

Many people have claimed
ownership of canal property, but

ODOT facility to begin construction

Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING The ground breaking for
the new $7.5 million full service maintenance facility was held on Monday morning at the current Paulding County facility
location at 833 Wayne Street.
Personnel from the Ohio Department of
Transportation district 1 office were on
hand to signify the beginning of construction of several buildings that are scheduled
to be completed next spring.
Kirk Slusher, District 1 Deputy Director
offered comments to those in attendance.
The statewide facility plan has been in
progress for two to three years according

to Slusher and the main focus for coming

together on Monday morning was to let everyone know that ODOT is here to stay.
The older, outdated buildings were built
in 1948 and 1966 and will be replaced with
an up-to-date facility to meet the states
highway maintenance needs.
The impressive facility will include a
32,000 square foot maintenance garage
and will feature additional truck storage
compared to the older facility; an upgraded above-ground fuel system, decanting
station for disposal of catch basin waste,
expanded mechanics area to provide space
needed to work on large equipment, and a
two-truck wash bay.

We have a seven acre site that will have

two entrances to the facility and will have
separate traffic areas for truck parking and
parking for smaller vehicles, said highway
management administrator Rod Nuveman.
In addition to the larger maintenance
building, there will be a new 13,000 square
foot salt dome that will replace the old unit.
The new dome will have a 4,000-ton capacity and will store up to 25 percent more than
the existing storage facility. The salt dome
is scheduled for completion in September
this year.

The Miami Canal was a
north-south waterway that connected Cincinnati and Toledo in the states early history.
Although canal construction
began in 1825, the entire route
didnt open until 1845. The canal operated until around 1912.
In Paulding County, the canal
corridor remains fairly intact.
Brian Mitchell, ODNR canal
manager, said only four leases
are active in the county two
for power lines for AEP and
two for farms for drainage.
Baldridge said that any proposed acquisition by the parks
district would be reviewed by
interested trail and historical advocates, such as Buckeye Trail
Association and Miami-Erie
Canal Corridor Association
(MECCA). He believes both
groups would be in favor of the
park districts objectives.

Antwerp Village

Council supports new tennis court with funding

Progress Staff Writer
ANTWERP An ordinance allowing the village to attempt the sale of two
lots within the village and a one-year
extension of the villages agreement
with Real Waste Disposal passed at the
Monday night Antwerp Village Council meeting.
Council also heard from two members of the Rotary Club concerning the
new tennis court upgrades and proceeded to make a contribution to the project. Village administrator Sara Keeran
also shared exciting information about
the planned water trail for the Maumee
For the second time, the village will
advertise for the sale of two lots on Oswalt Street. This time there will be no
minimum bid required. The lots will
advertise for five weeks, according to
The village has completed its first
year with Real Waste Disposal as its
provider. The original agreement al-

lows the village to extend the agreement for four successive one-year periods. Council passed a one-year extension with no cost increase.
Real Waste has done a great job in
the village and works closely with my
office and the utility billing clerk on
move-ins and move-outs, said Keeran.
Floyd Ramsier and Don Oberlin updated council on the new tennis court
that is being constructed where the old
court now stands.
Some preliminary work has already
started but the major project will begin
May 10. Cost of the court is estimated
at $21,500 plus an additional $2,800
for the color coated sealer that will be
placed on the coat.
Funding for the tennis court are coming in but the Rotary members asked
the village for financial support for the
project. After discussion, the board
unanimously passed a motion to donate
an amount not to exceed $5,000 for the
coating portion of the project.
Keeran, Mayor Ray DeLong and

park board member Mark Greenwood

attended a recent meeting in Waterville
to discuss the possibility of establishing a state designated water trail of
the Maumee River through five Ohio
counties, including Paulding County,
from the Indiana line to Lake Erie.
The park board has been working
to develop a canoe and kayak launch
in Riverside Park and this would be a
great opportunity for the village to partner with the other counties in developing the water trail, according to Keeran.
At the meeting, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR)
spoke to us and said that once a state
designation to the Maumee River was
given, the river access sites would be
eligible to access ODNR funds for signage, brochures, maps, and access development assistance, said Keeran.
The meeting was very encouraging,
according to Keeran and Mayor DeLong. All counties are on board and
committed to participate in the project.
Toledo Metropark will coordinate fu-

ture meetings and has already developed a map to include all the proposed
and current access points along the
Keeran informed council that she has
submitted to Maumee Valley Planning
Organization a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) application
for funding in the amount of $20,000
for a new roof at the fire department.
If the grant is received the village will
then match the grant with an additional
$11,900 to fund the project that would
be done next year.
The village continues to work on an
ordinance that will spell out the minimum housing standards. The village
is considering several options as they
work through the process including a
housing inspector.
The village planning commission
and Poggemeyer Design Group is in
the process of reviewing the language
of a new zoning ordinance that will
allow for the development of commercial zoning for the South Erie Street

Three business districts are being
considered as a part of the zoning plan.
B-1 would include the downtown business district; B-2 would be the Gateway
Commercial district located near U.S.
24; B-3 would be a general commercial
district which would provide for areas
where general suburban-scale commercial development is desired and would
serve the needs of local residents and
With council approval, the planning
commission recommended that the
three districts be amended for the zoning map. A public hearing will be held
on Thursday, May 12 at 5 p.m. in the
town hall for the purposed of these proposed amendments.
Police Chief George Clemens reported that 86 calls for service were
received in March and 29 offenses reported to Mayors Court.
EMS made 38 runs in March with
a total of 87 recorded during the first
three months of the year.

Noggle optimistic farmers wheels will turn this week

As long as the ground is

One, Im sure that well see
some manure application,
continued Noggle.

One of Noggles initial concerns is the continued penetration of mares tail in the county.
People need to get ahold of
this earlier rather than later,
said Noggle.
Noggle said that mares tail
plants overwinter in the rosette stage and remain in this
low-growing stage through
April, followed by stem elongation and growth to an eventual height of three to six feet.
It is most easily controlled
when in the seedling or ro-

sette stage.
Mares tail competes with
the soybeans throughout the
growing season and reduces
crop yield, observed Noggle.
It matures in late summer
or early fall and large mature
plants can interfere with soybean harvest.
Another invasive plant that
hasnt yet been seen in Paulding County is Palmer amaranth. It is native to the southwest but has recently become
a devastating weed problem in

Paulding Council expresses

concern over Zika virus

PAULDING Council members expressed concern over for the Zika virus at
the Paulding Village Council meeting on
April 18. They met in regular session and
urged citizens to check for items that could
have standing water in them that would allow for mosquitoes to breed.
In regard to the standing water and the
mosquito breeding grounds Councilmen
Dan Workman said, That can be as much
as a bottle cap. The council recommends
that residents change bird bath water frequently and keep a watch out for free standing water.
Councilmen Randy Daeger reported that
the cemetery board approved a 10-month
contract with Solid Ground LLC for the
amount of $20,224.10 for the mowing
and trimming of Paulding cemeteries. The
council unanimously approved the contract.
Daeger updated the council that the dates
and wording on the mowing contract with
Daniel Vance has been updated and sent
for signatures. The wording on the contract
now reflects the missing gate at the water
plant and has been changed from the gate to
the creek pump.
Administrator Harry Wiebe recommended that the street committee meet to resolve
the issues from the committee of the whole
that were left open. These open issues are

in regard to Hopkins Alley and the difference of opinions of the surrounding property owners, and the two-hour and handicap
parking legislation. The street committee
meeting will be held April 26 at 6 p.m.
Wiebe reported on the Gasser Road/U.S.
127 intersection project. Items that were discussed were:
The 629 Grant has been secured.
The grant for $150,000 through The
Ohio Department of Transportation and
Jobs and Commerce is currently being reviewed.
The grant for $169,000 through the
Transportation District is currently in the
process and is waiting for the state to be registered by the transportation district. Once
complete, Ellen Smith from Maumee Valley Planning Organization will present the
resolution to the council for review.
Major Greg Reinhart announced that he
and Police Chief Randy Crawford will start
conducting interviews to fill the open position for the full-time police officer in Paulding.
Reinhart wanted to offer his thanks to
Regina Weidenhamer for her outstanding
work and the long hours she completed
during the recent murder case. He also extended his gratitude to the Paulding County
Sheriffs Office, Defiance County Sheriffs
Office and the BCI agents.
Workman brought to attention that there

have been complaints of junk cars sitting

around and confirmed that would be handled by the police department.
Finance Director Annette Hasch asked to
be added as a signer to the accounts at the
First Federal Bank for the processes for the
audit that is currently in process. Hasch also
asked to be added as a signer to the Huntington Bank accounts in order to handle trust
accounts. The council voted unanimously to
add Hasch as a signer to both accounts.
Council approved water and sewer assessments for residences owned by Joseph
J. Zigovits Jr.
Building and grounds committee will
meet on April 26 at 5:30 p.m. to resolve the
matter of the roofs on the Stykemain building and the Village of Paulding Administrative Building.
A utility meeting was set for April 27 at
5:30 p.m. at the water plant to discuss the
issues concerning the water plant.
Major Greg Reinhart concluded the
meeting by urging the council to think outside the box to save the village money and
get more bang for the buck ... or were just
going to die.
When questioned about the fiscal soundness of the village, Reinhart responded,
We are not in dire straights and we dont
want to get there either.

In the south, they are currently burning entire fields off
to try to get rid of this unwelcome invasive, said Noggle.
If anyone thinks they recognize this, please report it immediately. I havent seen any in
the county but it is something
to keep our eyes open for.
We can provide testing
through Ohio State, continued
Noggle. The biggest concern
in testing right now is whether
or not it is herbicide resistant or
not. You need to call our office

Noggle said that one of her
biggest concerns is to have a
safe planting season.
Be extra careful in the

fields and on the roads, said

Noggle. All drivers need to
be careful and respectful of
farm machinery.
Noggle said that each Monday during the planting season,
she will be having a 9 a.m. conference call with the OSU Extension Department in Columbus. She encourages anyone
with questions about the calls,
or who has something they
would like for her to research
in the calls, to contact her in the
local office.
Weve got plenty of soil
moisture right now, plenty to
get the planting done, said
Noggle. Were still okay.
Each new spring brings about
challenges for people to take
on in learning different practices. We learn as we go.

Warm temperatures this weekend have local farmers thinking

about getting into their fields. Corn and bean crops will be put
into the ground soon; fertilizers and herbicides will be applied
as planting season begins in force.

Breakfast for supper The full circles of aging

Sitting here thinking about
what I want for breakfast is
always fun and interesting.
My usual go to breakfast is
either cookies, toast, Pop Tarts,
eggs or hot cereal. I was always taught that breakfast was
the most important meal of the
day, especially the coffee. Yes,
there are a lot of coffee drinkers who must have that first cup
of caffeine to get woke up in
the morning. I am one of those.
I see now that one of the
fast food chains are offering
their breakfast menus all day
long. After all, isnt breakfast supposed to be a morning
meal? Not anymore. Some of
us, including myself, love the
thought of cooking breakfast
for supper. There is nothing
better for an evening meal than
some bacon, eggs, home fries,
toast or biscuits, topped off by
a glass of orange juice.
Not everyone indulges in
the morning waker-upper,
coffee. Many like the old English beverage, a spot of tea.
However, there is not always
time for breakfast and different
food items are hurriedly picked
up to eat. One of the popular
foods being eaten for breakfast
is cold pizza. If your stomach
can handle pizza in the morning, this may be the breakfast
for you. In fact, you can make
your own breakfast pizza if
you have time.
One thing I found interesting was seeing what other
countries eat for breakfast. (Of
course, I like to know what everyone has good to eat.) If you
have a queasy stomach and you
happen to travel to one of these
various places, you may want
to skip breakfast. Right here in
the United States, the preferred
meat for breakfast in Alaska is
reindeer meat. Oh, no! Poor
Rudolph. The ideal breakfast
in this state is the reindeer and
a cooked egg nestled in a pancake. If I did not know it was
reindeer, I could possibly eat it.
In Japan, it is tofu soaked in
soya sauce along with rice and
fish and you have one so-called
delicious breakfast.
Breakfast in India consists
of Indian tofu scramble, lentils,
vegan sausage and hot pepper
toast. (I think this may not be
too bad.)
If you are planning a visit to
Ghana, your morning breakfast
dish will be waakye. It sounds
suspicious, but it is actually

just rice and beans. Over in

Thailand, a choice breakfast is
spicy fish
with a sweet and sour pork and
served with rice.
Moving on to Australia,
the main ingredient traveling
Aussies may carry in a backpack is a thick, brown salty
paste which they spread on
toast. It is called Vegemite.
If you ever eat your morning
meal in Turkey, you will get
cheese, butter, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, honey and a
spicy meat. (No thanks for that
in the morning.)
In Mexico, nachos, rice, cheese
and beans are featured with beef
tips and chiliquiles. Yes, and eggs
may also be included. (I could eat

this for supper.)

In Germany, the first meal of
the day is usually a wurst, local
cheeses, homemade bread and
a good strong coffee.
We all like French cuisine, so
in France, breakfast is usually a
croissant packed with almonds,
butter, chocolate or cream.
In Columbia, a dish called
changua is served for breakfast. It is made with milk, scallions and cheese.
Over in Scotland, the Scottish are fond of haggis, fried
eggs and square sausages
called Lome. What is haggis?
It happens to be sheeps heart,
liver and lungs all minced up
and mixed with oatmeal, suet,
salt and some stock. No thanks
to haggis.
All of these breakfasts from
foreign places may be very
good and tasty, but as for me,
I still prefer Pop Tarts, toast or
Well, it is close to lunch time,
so I believe I will eat some real
breakfast now. I believe I will
have bacon and eggs.
Do you think breakfast is the
best meal of the day? Have you
ever ate anything weird like
haggis or milk with scallions?
Do you like fixing breakfast
for supper? Let me know and
Ill give you a Penny for your

joyful birthday surprise. For

nearly two hours, long lost
memories were brought back
as we reflected on those days
when I was involved in that
group. They shared incidents
of their lives in the past 28
years and we shared the past
28 years in our lives. It was an
aging full circle of birthday
and anniversary celebration, a
really special blessing of aging.
As I reflected on the aging
circle mystique, I recalled
a birthday in my childhood
in which April 1 fell on Easter. I specifically remember
my mother saying to me at
the time, the next time your
birthday falls on Easter, you
will be 70 years old.

A unique happening of our

marriage is the fact that our
birth dates occur side by side.
I was born on April 1, 1948
and Joyce was born on April 2,
1950. This year, my birthday
had a serendipitous surprise
At noon on April 1, while
I was out of town, I received
a phone call from Joyce in
which she stated, Jim, Ive
got a really big surprise for
your birthday.
When I was pastoring East
Gilead Missionary Church in
Branch County, Mich., I drove
to Elkhart, Ind. every Monday
night for many years to serve
as the pastoral representative
for the conferences Christian
Divorced Singles Ministry.
Occasionally, members of that
support group would fall in
love and would end up getting
married, often by me.
One of those couples was
John and Nancy Cook, who,
ironically, were married by
me on April 1, 1988, 28 years
ago at Beulah Missionary
Church in Elkhart. To our surprise, they decided to find us
and shocked us by taking us
out for supper on April 1, my
birthday, but their 28th wedding anniversary.
In the evening, we met at a
Fort Wayne restaurant for this

needs to pick it up
before April 28th
Thank you.

To me at the time, the thought

was unfathomable. I wondered what life would be like
at that time. The thought of
her statement at that time was
both intriguing and sad. I realized then that my parents
would probably be gone, my
grandma would be gone and
life would be well on its way
for me, if, in fact, I would still
be alive at the time. At that
time, it seemed like something
that was farther away than
I could imagine, a lifetime
away, which, indeed it was.
That moment occurred on
April 1, 1956, my eighth birthday. The day my mother told
me when my birthday would
again occur on Easter would
be April 1, 2018; I would be
70-years old at the time, in
other words, just two years
from now.
Here I am, nearly on the
verge of one of the biggest
full circles of my lifetime
and that day is almost here.
It seems like only yesterday
when my mother made her
special statement to me. Im
starting to get it; one of the
exciting happenings of aging
is the completion of full circles.

On April 22, we observe
Earth Day. Like many people,
you might participate in some
activities to help the health of
our planet. But you can also do
some things to improve your
personal investment environment.
In fact, you might want to
follow a key environmental
theme: reduce, reuse, recycle.
How can these elements be
applied to investing? Here are
some ideas:
Reduce You dont want
to waste time, effort and
money on investment decisions that will ultimately not
benefit you much, if at all.
For example, if you are constantly buying and selling investments, you may be hurting yourself in a few different
ways. First, by not holding
investments for at least a year
before selling them, you may
have to pay taxes on shortterm capital gains at a rate
thats probably going to be
higher than the long-term rate,
which would apply if you held
the investments at least a year
before selling. Second, by always buying and selling, you
could pay more in trading

costs. Third, some investments simply need to be held

for the long term before they
will show positive results.
And finally, excessive buying
and selling can make it hard
for you to follow a consistent,
long-term investment strategy.
So if you do trade frequently,
consider reducing your activity.
Reuse You dont have to
look hard to find all sorts of
investment techniques being
promoted by someone. Many
of these strategies have exotic-sounding names, such as
Dogs of the Dow or Range
Trading. These techniques
may have some validity, but,
unfortunately, some investors
zigzag from one to another,
hoping to eventually find that
sure ticket to investment
success. You need to develop,
and reuse year after year, an
investment strategy created
just for you, based on your
individual needs, goals, comfort with risk and investing
time horizon. Of course, you
may well need to adjust this
strategy over time to reflect
changes in your life but
adjusting isnt the same as
abandoning. Sticking with a
long-term, personalized strategy is an effective and less
stressful way of pursuing
your financial objectives.
Recycle When you put
money in some investments,
you dont just make a onetime payment and then hope
to eventually make a profit
when you sell you can actually recycle your investment
earnings and put them to good
use. To illustrate: If you invest
in dividend-paying stocks,
you can typically sign up for
a dividend-reinvestment plan
and, as the name suggests,
reinvest the dividends back

5K benefits young West family

Is An Art
at Oakwood
Joe Shouse/Paulding County Progress

Oakwood Elementary School

recently celebrated the arts
with Learning Is An Art night.
Students prepared their classrooms and lined the halls with
various displays of art work.
The fifth grade class performed
a dance demonstration called
Waves of Tory. Several students
offered instrumental solos, duets and trios.

Feature Writer
HAVILAND Latty resident Andy West will never forget the nightmare morning of
this past Feb. 8. That was the
day he discovered the lifeless
form of his son, Tim, in bed.
We worked at Braun and
he rode with me to work every
day, said West. He always
was a heavy sleeper; I went
upstairs and found him. They
still dont know what happened.
The shocking passing of
the young Wayne Trace graduate completely changed the
world of Wests young wife,
Beth, and their 9-month-old
son, Gabriel. The young family had been living in Beths
home area in Wisconsin and
had moved back to the local
area in October.
This past Saturday evening,
the West family experienced
what they have come to appreciate the most about the local
area, a caring community that
has reached out to them meal
by meal and need by need.
This time it was a 5K Glow
in the Dark, sponsored by the
Wayne Trace National Honor
Society. Over 200 individuals
had registered and given to
support the needs of Beth and
Gabriel West.
One of the reasons why
Tim moved us back here is because he knew what people in
this area are like, commented
Beth. Everyone really reaches out.
This community is very
helpful, continued West.
People are constantly bringing stuff to us. They bring
meals to us; you just never
know what is coming. People
are always thinking of us.

That is one of the great

things about living in a small
Tims mother, Bonnie West.
Everyone comes together
when there is a tragedy. Just
look at the way everyone has
come together on a cold night
like this for a 5K. Everywhere I see people who tell us
that they are praying for us,
continued West. That is what
means so much to us. That is
what is getting us through.
Andy said that the way
people are giving to his family characterizes one of the
leading traits of his son. He
referred to his son as a great
kid that always wanted to give
This is hard for me to be
on this side of things, said
West. For years Ive been on
the side that is helping people.
Ive always been involved in
benefits that reach out and
help others. Tim was the same
way; he was always doing

helpful things for others.

The past few months have
been very humbling. There
has been so much love and
support from the community.
It is very overwhelming. It really gets to me, added West
Heather Hatcher, National Honor Society co-advisor,
said that the West family was
chosen by the society by a
vote as this years recipient of
5K funding.
They all feel so deeply
for Tims wife and son, said
Hatcher. Tim was chosen; he
had been a student at Wayne
Trace. He had been in sports
and other activities in school.
Concerning her feelings for
the local area, Beth said, I plan
to stay in this area. I have fallen
in love with this area. I know
that when we moved back here
in October, Tim wanted Gabriel to wrestle on the Wayne
Trace wrestling team. I want to
see that happen.

Haviland man ordered to

clean up haz-mat, pay fine

HAVILAND A man accused of seven violations of Ohios

codes regarding hazardous wastes is cooperating with the Ohio
EPA on clean up of property in Haviland.
Larry Lewis, without trial or admission of any issue of fact or
law, agreed to an order of Paulding County Common Pleas Court
last month.
An installment plan to pay a $5,000 civil fee to the State of Ohio
and a regimented guideline of required paperwork were included in
the Courts order.
The order says Lewis is to submit a closure plan for a tractor-trailer hazardous waste management unit on his property for approval
by the Ohio EPA. Implementation of the plan is to be immediate
once approved.
Within 30 days of the sites closure, he must submit a certification
of closure and a survey plat to the EPA. In the mean time he is also
required to submit detailed closure cost estimates, documentation
of financial assurance for closure and proof of liability coverage.
During the course of the clean up, Lewis must allow the State
access to the site to monitor the work, verify data, conduct investigations, obtain samples, inspecting records and documents, and
assessing defendant compliance.
What began as a report of paint waste leaking from a trailer at
305 S. McKinley St., in November 2009 turned into the States
complaint against him when the EPA discovered a trailer stacked
with 1- and 5-gallon sized paint containers in poor condition and in
some cases leaking.
EPA sampling determined the material hazardous due to ignitability and toxicity.
The States December 2014 complaint against him came after
some of the waste had been removed to an approved site in November 2011 and April 2012, but an estimated 100 containers remained.
Allegations against him, however, leaned more toward paperwork issues. In addition to being accused of operating a hazardous
waste facility without a permit and illegal storage and disposal of hazardous waste, he was also cited for failure to have a
closure plan; failure to remove hazardous waste in accordance
with an approved closure plan; failure to maintain cost estimate of closure costs, adequate financial assurance and liability insurance; failure to perform waste evaluation; and failure

input from county citizens and to write the plan that will be put into effect in case of a natural or manmade emergency in the county.
The plan will then be submitted to the state and to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for final approval. Ed Bohn,
Paulding County Emergency Management director, far right, was host for the meeting.

Plant Nerds and the

California Spring Trials
Last week, I had the opportunity to go to California. I
love to travel and having only
been to California twice in my
life, I jumped at this chance. It
was for work, but being a garden writer is a mostly pleasurable business, especially when
it involves looking at a plethora of beautiful plants plants
that the rest of the gardening
world wont see in garden
centers until next spring.
When a new plant is born,
it can take years, sometimes
many, many years, before it
lands in your garden. Ive
been involved in a couple of
the steps and scenarios of the
process and its fascinating.
Lets look at what the journey
could look like, using a plant
that grew in my own garden.
About 12 years ago, I
planted some Indian blanket
(Gaillardia) seeds in my back
garden. They grew and were
lovely. Several years later, I
purchased some Gaillardia
plants that were similar, but
instead of being red, orange
and yellow, these were all yellow. I planted them in my back
garden too, next to the original
ones I grew from seed.
Both kinds grew for several
more years and then one summer, I noticed a completely
different Gaillardia growing
among the two original varieties. These were yellow and
orange, with one color nicely
blending into the other.
I figured that somehow, the
plants cross-pollinated, produced seed, and grew. But
we know that plants from
open-pollinated seeds often
dont come true back the next
year, and especially if one of
the parents is a hybrid, like my
yellow ones were.
So, I watched the next year
to see if my beautiful new
Gaillardia would return. It
did. The plant grew larger
and the third summer, it returned yet again. I know that
new plants are discovered all
the time in gardeners back-

yards, so I started looking at

all the gaillardias already out
there, to see if there was one
that looked like mine. There
At this point, I should have
contacted a company that introduces new plants to see
about the possibility of my
Gaillardia being the next new
variety, but I didnt, so my personal story ends there. But if
I had, a series of steps would
have been taken to further its
potential journey to your backyard.
I would have sent part of
the plant and some seeds to a
company for testing to see if it
was stable and remained true,
which would have involved
several seasons of growing.
Other characteristics would
have been noted such as size,
growth habit, flower production, disease resistance, etc.
If all of those remained constant, it would be patented and
licensed and then grown for
many more years to build up a
supply large enough to sell to
the public.
Thats the short version of
just one scenario of what a new
plant goes through, and you
can see that it takes a long time
for a new variety to get to market. The longer it takes and the
more steps that are involved,
the more expensive the plant
will be when you find it for
purchase. Its not unlike that

of a new appliance. Remember how expensive microwave

ovens and VCR players were
when they were first sold?
Companies that grow plants
for the wholesale growers that
sell to garden centers have
growing facilities all over the
world. But nearly all of them
have facilities up and down
the coast of California. In the
spring, for about a week or so,
these plant companies have an
open house for the growers and
the media so that they can see
what new plants will be available to purchase for the following season.
Its like a Parade of Plants,
with the plant company personnel available to laud their
plants attributes and answer
any questions. Its a way for
growers to shop for what they
want to grow as a supplier, and
garden centers can see what
they might want to sell. Media
people, like me, are welcomed,
because it is hoped that they
can help spread the word about
the latest offerings.
So I became a National Garden Bureau Plant Nerd (our
official title!) and together
with five other people, I traveled from Los Angeles to San
Jose, stopping at various locations along the coast to see the
new plants. It was glorious. I
forgot about the snow that I
had left in Ohio and filled my This Gaillardia grew in my garden for several seasons before disappearing as mysteriously as it
soul with beautiful flowers
and gorgeous scenery (High- came. New Gaillardia hybrids have since been introduced that look very similar to it.

the warm Pacific Coast sun.

Ill be writing more about my
experiences on my blog, Our

Grant to allow hazardous

material study in county
PAULDING The Paulding County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) has been
awarded $7,830 from the FY15 Hazardous Material Emergency Preparedness Grant Program
The HMEP grant is a 20% matching fund
that will be coming from the LEPC funds. The
grant will be used to complete a comprehensive
hazardous materials transportation study of the
federal and state highways in Paulding County.
The last traffic study was completed eight
to ten years ago and, with the expansion of U.S.
24 to four lanes, has increased the semi traffic,
making it extremely important to know what
hazardous materials are traveling down our
highways, stated EMA director Edward Bohn.
The study will be conducted in the next two
months by the University of Findlay All Hazards Training Center. The study will show the
amount of truck traffic in a given period, but
more importantly, will track the number of
trucks carrying hazardous materials through
Paulding County.
With the expansion of U.S. 24, semi-truck
traffic has increased on U.S. 127 as well as the
state highways in the county, Bohn said.
The need for accurate information, in regards
to the transportation of hazardous materials
through Paulding County is an essential component of the countys hazard analysis plan.
In 2015, the Ohio EMA, in their evaluation of the hazard analysis plan for Paulding

County, pointed out the deficiency in not having an updated highway transportation study,
stated Bohn.
The second item funded with the grant, will
be a CAMEO-based analysis of the Tier II and
EHS facilities in Paulding County. CAMEO
stands for Computer-Aided Management of
Emergency Operations. Paulding County will
be contracting with Michael Frey from Toledo
on the facilities in Paulding County that have
reportable quantities of hazardous materials at
their facilities throughout the given year.
Bohn stated that the ability to have the
CAMEO Analysis done on each of the facilities allow the first responders to plan, train and
prepare for an incident if it were to occur at any
one of the facilities in their run district.
Bohn will continue to seek out funding to
help further the planning and preparedness process in Paulding County.

The Wayne Trace baseball team played at Fifth Third Field, home of the AAA Toledo Mud Hens, on Saturday against Ottoville.

are (l-r) seniors Austin Winebrenner, Jake Baksa, Noah Stoller, Luke Miller, Clint Sinn, head coach Ryne Jerome, Alec Vest, Austin
Fast and Edwin Van den Hengel.

Toledo is new experience for Wayne Trace

Sports Writer
TOLEDO It wasnt the result they
hoped for but it was still a positive experience for the Wayne Trace baseball
team on Saturday.
The Raiders made their first ever trip
to play at Fifth Third Field in Toledo,
home of the AAA Toledo Mud Hens, and
brought home some memories that will
not be duplicated despite an 11-1 loss to
Head coach Ryne Jerome was glad
his players got to experience a game at a
high level facility.
A great experience for our players,
commented Jerome. I think all of the
players really enjoyed the opportunity to
take part in it and will take some good
memories away from it.
It was good to have the opportunity
to play in a facility of that stature, be-

ing the next highest level of baseball,

Jerome continued. For some of these
guys, it may be their only opportunity to
play on that type of a field or see the insides of a ballpark like that. I hope they
take away from it a lot of positive memories and remember that opportunity.
The Big Green jumped on Wayne
Trace quickly, scoring a pair of runs in
the first. However, Ottoville did its big
damage in the third, plating nine runners
while sending a dozen to the plate.
Obviously, we didnt have the type of
pitching today that we needed, Jerome
added. However, they will bounce
back and be okay. I dont know if it was
nerves or what it was but we come back
next week with a busy schedule and look
forward to keep playing.
Wayne Trace got its only run in the
Noah Stoller led off with a single to

right, stole second and third and then

scored on a passed ball.
We didnt string any hits together,
noted the Raider mentor. We were able
to get some hits but we just didnt put
anything back-to-back.
Luke Miller, Blaine Jerome and Grant
Baumle also had singles in the contest
for Wayne Trace.
Braden Zuber took the loss for the
Raiders with Noah Toppe and Baumle
closing out the game on the mound.
Overall, it is a learning experience as
well, concluded Jerome. We need to
learn from different situations and work
on getting better. We play at Parkview
Field on Wednesday so I think this will
also help us in enjoying that opportunity.
Wayne Trace will play at Parkview
Field on Wednesday against Wayne
High School out of Fort Wayne. Game
time is slated for 4:30 p.m.

shine in annual All-Star game
Sports Writer
ANTWERP The third annual Parkview Sports Medicine All-Star Classic was held
at Antwerp this past Sunday.
The Ohio girls out-pointed
Indiana, 44-37, while in the
boys match-up, it was the team
from the Hoosier State holding
off the Ohio contingent to eke
out a four-point win, 89-85.
Three Paulding County athletes took individual honors
by capturing the girls 3-point
contest, the girls most valuable
player award, and the boys
dunk contest.
Audrie Longardner, Antwerps four-year varsity
starter, captured the 3-point
contest. In the first round,
Longardner and Emily Bower
from Crestview each scored
12 points and defeated the two
Indiana representatives; Skylar Zuber from South Adams
and Hailey Lasch from New
Haven. In the play-off round
to determine the winner, both
Longardner and Bower shot
five 3-point shots with Longardner edging past her opponent 5-4 for the title.
In the boys dunk contest,
five players worked their
magic above the rim in hopes
of claiming the title. It turned
out that the shortest player of
the group, a familiar name to
Antwerp fans, did not disap-

Saving his third dunk as his
best, Sam Williamson scored
a perfect 30 when he threw
the basketball high in the air,
off the wall behind the basket,
hitting the wall, ricocheting
back in front of the hoop while
Williamson went high in the
air to catch the ball in front of
the rim and jamming the ball
through the basket.
The 6-1 Williamson managed to jump past Lincolnviews Hayden Ludwig who
stands 6-3, Pauldings Alex
Arellano at 6-5 and from Indiana 6-3 Jonah Tijerina from
Adams Central and 6-5 Jacque
Jacquay from Heritage.
The girls from Ohio led
from the opening tip-off and
held double-digit leads for
most of the contest before settling for a seven-point win.
Wayne Trace senior Erin
Mohr, who had a quiet first
half with just a single bucket
added five more in the second
half to finish with 12 points.
With a solid second half, the
Ohio leading scorer took the
most valuable player trophy.
Paulding County scorers for
Ohio joining Mohr were Lady
Raider teammate Courtney
Mead with four, Antwerps
Avery Braaten adding eight
and Kiana Recker with two.
Samantha Meggison, representing Paulding, collected

who were coached by Antwerps Scott McMichael.
In the boys game, Indiana
was taller than Ohio and was
clicking with their outside
shooting. Indiana led 54-46 at
intermission and never gave
up the lead in the second half.
Leading scorer and most
valuable player for Ohio was
Connor Lautzenheiser from
Crestview with 18 points. Lincolnview teammates Chandler

chipped in 13.

This is the inside view of the Paulding County EMAs new emergency response trailer. It was
purchased with EMPG funds and cost recovery money from hazardous materials spills in the
county. The unit was put into service earlier this spring.

Trailer to aid response to

hazardous spills in county

PAULDING The Paulding County Emergency Management Agency recently put into
service a new emergency response trailer for
hazardous material incidents. The trailer was
purchased through EMPG funds and cost recovery monies from hazardous material incidents in the county.
EMA director Edward Bohn stated that when
an incident involving the release of hazardous
materials occurs within Paulding County the
local fire department(s) and EMA is called out
to handle the incident. The party that is responsible, is also responsible for reimbursement.
The fire department(s) are reimbursed for their
costs for apparatus, personnel and equipment.
The EMA gathers all the bills together and submit them to the insurance companies.
Director Bohn said, The monies paid to the
EMA go into a cost recovery account, so that
equipment used at the scene can be replaced.
The supplies and equipment within the trailer

were all purchased with cost recovery monies.

The emergency response trailer is equipped
with a variety of absorbent materials such as 8
absorbent booms for materials in water ways,
ditches, creeks, and narrowing areas of the two
rivers in Paulding County. Some of the other
absorbent materials are absorbent pads, 3 absorbent socks and Peatsorb, which is a lightweight non-biodegradable, natural organic absorbent made from 100% Canadian sphagnum
peat moss.
Other equipment on the trailer includes personal protective equipment (PPE), Level B
Haz-Mat suits, various gloves of different materials, boots, hard hats and other PPE.
The other tools, equipment and kits are all
to be utilized in an Operations Level manner.
The trailer will be taken around to the eight fire
departments in the county to have the fire fighters and EMTs familiarize themselves with the
equipment and locations on the trailer.

Scripture of the Week:

Sue Crossland, organist at the First

Presbyterian in Paulding, will be featured during the 10:15 a.m. worship
service on Sunday, April 24. Crossland
has served the church for 50 years as
its organist and will play the churchs
100-year-old pipe organ as they celebrate her faithfulness to the church.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live
in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Progress Staff Writer
In an election year where
there are several who want
to rule this great country of
ours, they, like the rest of us,
need to understand the Lord
rules over all today and forevermore. They can make their
promises, only to be broken
or easily forgotten, but Jesus
keeps every promise he ever
The Lord Jesus Christ
Gods only begotten Son
has been given the name
above all other names (yes,
even above Trump). Jesus has
complete authority over heaven and earth, and He exercises that authority according to
His Fathers good purposes.
Christs position as Lord over
all of mankind will never end.
Most of the people in this
great country of ours, even the
world for that matter, have not

50 years
of service
to the King
... its just what you do
PAULDING Its just what
you do
Susan B. Crosslands desire for caring, doing, helping
and serving has deep roots.
Her dad, Don Sr., was always
coaching something, or leading
the opening for Sunday School
at church. Her mom, Phyllis,
ran the church nursery, was
the church treasurer for many
years, directed Bible School,
or had some volunteer project
Sue herself has served in
many ways over the years:
Girl Scouts, Alpha Xi Delta
president twice, head of the
Paulding Chamber of Commerce, chairman of the pastor
search committee twice, EMS
coordinator for many years,
church organist for 50 years,
as well as choir director for
many years. She also served on
village council, played piano

for music programs at school,

coached track, gymnastics and
Its just what you do. Sues
love of music, her love of her
church and her Lord have kept
her at the First Presbyterian in
She began playing for the
Sunday school opening while
in junior high (Only the simple hymns, she said.) and continued with piano lessons until
she moved on to the organ.
Her first Sunday to play was a
Youth Sunday service, and she
has continued on since. While
attending Defiance College,
she put many miles on the car
her parents bought for her just
for the purpose of getting her
back and forth.
On April 24, the church
where Sue has served for over
50 years will celebrate the
love and the faithfulness of the

Lord, shown to them through

the music of their wonderful
pipe organ as presented Crossland. The congregation will
sing for joy at the work of His
hands, accompanied by her
music. For so many, music is
the bridge between every day
life and the life we wished we
lived as a Christian. Music
gives the individual a taste of
the glory, a taste of the love and
power of the Lord.
When Sue plays, the church
senses His majesty. As she
plays at Christmas, they feel
the love of the parents of the
newborn Jesus, they feel the
fear of the shepherds, the joy
of the angels.
During Holy Week, through
her music, they know the pain
and suffering that Jesus endured, they experience the
sorrow and loss of those who
loved Him and then they re-

joice at His resurrection. All

these emotions come through
the hands and heart of the
woman playing the 100 plus
year old pipe organ.
None of this comes easily.
When you are given a spiritual
gift, you have to do the work
needed to grow and improve
that gift. Sue is present each
week to practice for Sunday.
She is always available for
every choir practice. Not feeling well? Too bad, gotta go
to practice. Had surgery? Too
bad, gotta go to practice. Broken finger or toe? Too bad, gotta go to practice. Coughing so
hard you think youll slide off
the bench? Too bad, gotta go to
practice. Its just what you do.
Music is deeply rooted in
the human soul. And for the
followers of Jesus, it is a powerful means of encouraging
each other along the journey

acknowledged Jesus right to

rule. They reject His lordship
and do whatever they think is
best. As a result, sin abounds,
wreaking havoc in the lives of
many. The good news is that
the Father has a plan, which
cannot be stopped.
One day every person will
acknowledge the authority of
Jesus. Just as God promised,
all created beings in heaven, on earth, and under the
earth will kneel before Him
including those who have
rejected the Son of God (Philippians 2:20). What a triumphant and glorious time that
will be!
Even before that day, we
who follow the Savior are
to live with our wills bent in
submission to His. If Jesus is
Lord over us, then we will acknowledge that life revolves
around Him and we exist for
His purposes, not the other
of faith. Whether our hearts
cry out, Create in me a clean
heart, O Lord. (Ps. 51:10), or
joyfully shout And He will
reign forever and ever! (Rev.
11:15) the power of music that
exalts God lifts our spirits and
grants us peace.
The public is invited to join

Galatians 2:20
way around. Well also make
His priorities our own, giving
the Lords plans precedence
over all others. We will furthermore confess His Lordship over us, proclaim that He
is our Savior, and testify to
what He has done for us.
Galatians 2:20...I have been
crucified with Christ and I no
longer live, but Christ lives in
me. The life I now live in the
body, I live by faith in the Son
of God, who loved me and
gave himself for me.
Friends, our choices will
reflect the desire to be a living
testimony to His lordship in
our lives.
Surrendering control to
Jesus Christ is the wisest
decision we can make. And
remember, he will keep his
promises. Is He truly Lord of
your life?
the congregation at First Presbyterian in Paulding as they
gather to sing to the Lord,
listen to His music, celebrate
Sues dedication to serve both
God and her fellow congregants on Sunday, April 24 at
10:15 a.m. Lunch will follow,
with an informal program.
