It’s hard to believe how the summer is quick-ly disappearing and the start of school is justaround the corner. School supplies are in thestores, and before you know it, the classroom bell will ring sounding the first day of school.For many teachers and school personnel, asummer vacation is becoming extinct.In small districts, teachers and secretariesoften wear more than one hat. They find them-selves working throughout the summer tomake learning more exciting for their studentsand their district even stronger when the newschool year begins.With college classes to take, sports camps tooversee, and the responsibility of extracurricu-lar activities, many teachers spend their sum-mers with little time off as they invest in theoverall program of their local school district.Several of these hardworking people took afew minutes to share some of their summer  plans; after hearing their schedule and learningabout how they dedicate so much of their sum-mer back to the school and students, you can’thelp but appreciate their service and loyaltygiven during the summer.Amy Sorrell and her yearbook staff justcompleted putting the final touches on theAntwerp yearbook. Working feverishlythrough the month of June, the process wasunique in that the staff did not use an outsideyearbook company. All the work was done in-house, according to Sorrell.“It was a chronological yearbook and there-fore we had to use the month of June to com- plete the May portion of the project.”Sorrell, the high school language arts teacher at Antwerp High School, stepped outside the box and challenged her yearbook staff. Thisyear, Sorrell, along with four seniors, two jun-iors and a sophomore, worked together to de-velop, produce and self-publish the yearbook.In her relationship with other schools in thearea, Sorrell believes Antwerp is the onlyschool in the area who attempted this type of  project.“I have talked to several friends of mine inother school districts and they are anxious tohear from me on how this worked out.”This is the first year Antwerp has self-pub-lished their year book.“It was a lot of work and since it was done inchronological order, we would focus on schoolevents one week at a time and then each week we would edit and proofread our work,” saidSorrell.The in-house project allowed the students to be more engaged in the process.“By doing this in house we were able tospend less time selling ads for the book and atthe same time lowering the cost of the year- book. I believe we were able to save thousandsof dollars,” said Sorrell.In addition to the high school year book, asmaller, 24-page elementary yearbook will be

WHEAT HARVEST UNDER WAY - Farmers around Paulding Countybreathed a sigh of relief as field conditions improved to a point where wheatharvest could finally begin late last week. Although fields appeared ready for harvest, rains kept heavy equipment off soaked soils until Friday or Saturdayin many areas. Although the official rainfall at the Paulding Water Plant for the month was 1.68 inches as of July 15, spotty downpours through the pe-riod provided much more than that in certain regions around the county.Here, wheat was taken off Monday afternoon in Emerald Township alongRoad 123. The combine is operated by Straley & Son Farms, Paulding.

 Never seen before in NorthAmerica, a swine virus that isdeadly to young pigs has beenreported in 13 states. A total of 199 farms so far have seen theresults of this PorcineEpidemic Diarrhea virus(PEDV).Iowa, the largest U.S. hogproducer, has reported 102sites as of June 10. This stateraises on the average 30 mil-lion hogs each year, accordingto the Iowa Pork ProducersAssociation.PEDV, most often fatal tovery young pigs, causes diar-rhea, vomiting and dehydra-tion. It also sickens older hogs,though their survival rate tendsto be high. The virus does notpose a health risk to humans or other animals. Meat fromPEDV-infected hogs is safe for people to eat, according to fed-eral officials and livestock economists.But the virus, which isspreading rapidly across theUnited States, is proving hard-er to control than previouslybelieved. In addition to Iowa,there has been the states of Oklahoma, Minnesota,Indiana, Arkansas, Colorado,Kansas, Illinois, Michigan,Missouri, Pennsylvania, SouthDakota and Ohio which havereported and confirmed thevirus.Investigators and swine vet-erinarians working with theU.S. Agriculture Departmentare trying to determine how thevirus is spreading from farm tofarm and from state to state.Focus is on the nation’s live-stock transportation system.PEDV is spread most com-monly by pigs ingesting con-taminated feces. Truck trailersmarred with contaminatedfeces or a person wearing dirty boots or with dirty nails are prime suspects.The strain of the PEDVvirus is making its way acrossthe nation’s hog farms andslaughter houses is 99.4% sim-ilar in genetic structure to thePEDV that hit China’s herdslast year, according to the U.S.researchers. But there is no di-rect connection found betweenthe U.S. outbreak and previ-ously identified outbreaks inAsia and Europe say scientistsand researchers.Keep a close eye on swineactivity on your farm and re- port any unusual mortalitycounts to OSU Extension.According to the EPA let-ter, “Turbidity has no healtheffects so you were not ad-vised to take any action.”The good news is that thehigh turbidity levels from thefirst 16 days of June werefrom water produced by theold water treatment plant.The new water treatment plant went on line on June 17;according to an Ohio EPA re- port, the turbidity was nolonger an issue as it immedi-ately was within the allowedlimits.Wiebe commented, “Thisis a timely event that demon-strates the new water plant’scapabilities.”There was some discussionconcerning the cause of tur- bidly. Wiebe advised councilthat the algae in the PauldingReservoir was the main causeas it blooms during the warmweather of late spring andsummer then dies, leavingsmall pieces in the water.Wiebe told council thatthey started using a substancecalled peroxygen to help con-trol the algae in the reservoir earlier in the season, and ithas helped, but is not com- pletely controlling algaegrowth.Wiebe scheduled a com-mittee of the whole meetingfor July 23 to discuss thesewer separation project.Councilwoman Barb Rife in-quired if the engineers would be present and Wiebe assuredthey would be in attendance.It was remarked that thereare some citizen concernsabout repaving the streets thatare being torn up for thesewer system installation. Itwas noted by several councilmembers and the mayor thatthe sewer project only pro-vides for repaving repair of trenched areas, or as stated byCouncil President Roger Sierer, “The only areas thatwill be repaved as part of thesewer project will be theareas cut out to make the in-stallation.”Councilman Randy Daeger noted that this issue was dis-cussed at a public meeting prior to starting this projectand it was also noted thatthere were no concerned citi-zens at this public meeting.Council heard the firstreading of Resolution No.1282-13 authorizing a coop-erative fishing agreementwith the State of Ohio.Council unanimously sus- pended the rules, declared anemergency and unanimouslyapproved:Ordinance No. 1460-13authorizing advertising for  bids of the Hotel Barnes property.Ordinance No. 1461-13authorizing the advertisementfor bids for sale of personal property from the Pauldingwater plant.Resolution No. 1283-13authorizing the term of 1989EMA agreement and author-izing a new agreement.Village solicitor MikeJones requested and councilvoted unanimously to go intoexecutive session to discusssome real estate legal mat-ters.The next regularly sched-uled meeting will be 6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 5.offered to the students.“This was a popular ideaand, according to the number of books we sold, we are very pleased.”As of last count, 160 highschool year books as well as160 elementary books have been sold. Now with the yearbook  project completed, Sorrell isfocusing on spending the bal-ance of her summer workingon developing a blendedlearning class for her AP(Advanced Placement)English/language students.“We received a grant thatwill enable us to develop on-line content for students to doon their own in order to pre- pare them for class activitiesthe following day.”Sorrell is in her fourth year teaching at Antwerp and prior to her Antwerp position shetaught 10 years in Indiana.She is married to Jonathan,who works in the IT depart-ment at the University of Saint Francis. The Sorrellshave three children, Atticus, arecent Antwerp grad who will be attending U of SF in thefall, seventh grader Iris, and2-year-old Aleta.Originally from Haviland,Dan Lehman took to the seaand then the long road beforelanding in Antwerp, where hehas taught since 2001. Ateacher in the social studiesdepartment at Antwerp HighSchool, Dan teaches criminal justice, AP psychology, histo-ry and government.This summer, Lehman hasattended seminars and daycourses at Bowling GreenState University. “I do all this by choice. But I know it willmake me a better teacher.”Lehman, who lives inAntwerp with his wife Laureland their two children,Alexandra and Danica, is alsotaking a geography class atDefiance. “It’s all part of therecertification that requiresadditional hours of coursework.”If he has any spare time,Dan usually finds himself modifying lesson plans tomeet the current state man-dates.“The state is always mak-ing changes to the commoncourse standards and so I findmyself changing lesson plansfor American history and gov-ernment... I also have been re-doing my AdvancedPlacement Psychology course plans for the upcoming year.”Upon graduating fromWayne Trace, Lehman attend-ed Defiance College and then joined the Navy for six years,where he spent the biggest part of his time on a subma-rine. After teaching a year inthe Baltimore City, Md. dis-trict, Lehman managed toland a position at Antwerp.After his teaching career kicked into gear, he then at-tended Bowling Green for three summers to attain hismasters in administration.Antwerp is a great school,according to Lehman.“I love every minute of it.There is a great relationship between staff and administra-tion. The school does an ex-cellent job getting informa-tion out to the teachers con-cerning professional develop-ment seminars. And whatever I can do to make myself a bet-ter teacher for my students isimportant to me.”

Meal planning is somuch easier with the gardengoodies. Joe planted another  patch of sweet corn yesterdayfor later use.Son Kevin, 7, does not getalong with our rooster. Heusually gathers the eggs andhas had a few surprises from behind from that rooster.It is July 3 and 2013 is half over already. We have beenhaving lots of rain. Last week we had a total of 8 inches.Some report more, some less.All is still quiet around thehouse this morning, so I de-cided to get up earlier thanthe rest to write this column.With this being vacationweek for my husband, Joe,and daughter, Elizabeth, wehave been sleeping in longer.Bedtime is also later withnot having to set an alarm.Such nice family time to-gether and memories made.Sunday evening we took supper to Jacob and Emma’shouse.

The eight-player cro-quet set was a Father’s Daygift to Joe and has been played many times since.Corn de-tasseling should be starting any day. Daugh-ters Susan and Verena went tohelp rogue the corn on Satur-day. If I understand correctly“to rogue” the corn is to takeout the tall unwanted corn-stalks out of the cornfields.This is done before the cornis de-tasseled.The fields were over a milelong and each person takes 12rows at a time. After all thisrain it made for some toughwalking. Their shoes werecaked with mud when theycame home.On Friday we enjoyed aWe also have a hen with a bad attitude. Daughter Susancame out to the barn andheard this hen really squawk-ing. She could not keep fromlaughing when she seenKevin and the hen face toface and the hen’s featherswere all raised. Kevin had anegg aimed to throw at the henfor his protection.Kevin keeps us all laughing.He wanted to help me mixLoretta’s birthday cake, butafter cracking the first egg toohard, it fell on the counter-top.He did manage to get the othersin the bowl.
