A Paulding County grand jury returned indictmentsagainst 15 persons onThursday.The individuals will be ar-raigned in Paulding CountyCommon Pleas Court. Thoseindicted were:James D. Fleenor, 42,Haviland, four counts felo-nious assault, felony of the firstdegree.Chadd C. Ratliff, 39,Paulding, three counts rape,felony of the first degree; twocounts gross sexual imposi-tion, third degree felony.James J. Herber, 44,Antwerp, two counts grosssexual imposition, third degreefelony; one count attemptedgross sexual imposition,felony of the fourth degree.Ryan L. Fraley, 18,Melrose, three counts grandtheft, felony of the fourth de-gree; one count arson, felonyof the fourth degree.Daniel E. Ordway, 19,Oakwood, three counts grandtheft, felony of the fourth de-gree; one count arson, felonyof the fourth degree.Adam J. Payne, 21,Paulding, one count grandtheft, fourth degree felony.Meliton Rodriquez, 37,Hicksville, one count nonsup- port of dependents, fourth de-and a contrast with DefianceCounty and Allen County, Ind.“When you approach the in-tersections on U.S. 24, the leftlane is referred to as the, ‘fastlane,’ and there are solid linesindicating the approach of anintersection, if you are goingto turn left,” said Pieper.“However, there are no mark-ings through the intersectionso those approaching U.S. 24from the off road really haveno indication of the depth of that intersection.“In Defiance County andAllen County, there are dottedmarkings that continue acrossthe intersection so that thoseapproaching it have indicationof where the traffic continuesto flow,” added Pieper. “Thereis probably 200 feet of just ce-ment with white lines manyfeet to the side. It is possiblethat a driver could misjudgetraffic depth at that point.”Both Pieper and Landers in-dicated that stop signs don’tappear to have been a factor inthe accidents. They said thatinterviews with witnesses in-dicate that in all cases, the in-dividual came to a completestop and then pulled out intotraffic, possibly concludingthat their problem was percep-tion of where traffic was, es- pecially in adverse weather conditions.“Even on a clear day, withtraffic approaching at 75 miles per hour, it can be hard to judge when it is going to ar-rive at the intersection,” saidPieper. “I had hoped that wemight get flashing stop lightsat the intersections, but in post-accident reports, that wasapparently not a factor.”Instead, after examining nu-merous accident reports andtalking to eyewitness from theaccident, ODOT official EricPfenning said that he wasgoing to recommend that thedotted lines be placed at theintersections similar to thosein Defiance County and AllenCounty.Pieper said that Pfenninghad told him that the depart-ment had also had requests for the dots from farmers whohave a problem judging howfar they can pull out into theintersection with their farmmachinery and semis.“I agree with Eric. I don’tthink that there are any ob-structions at these intersec-tions. It appears that the stopsigns were not a problem. If you go to one spot or the other,98 percent of the time there isno problem, but if there areextenuating weather condi-tions, the unmarked pavementcould be a problem,” saidLanders.“We were concerned thatthere were no obstructions.The roadways themselves ap- pear to be safe. Specializedstate highway officials weredown to examine the sites andthis appears to be the most fea-sible solution. ODOT is doingall it can to solve this,” said thesheriff.this year, two at County Road87 and U.S. 24, one at Ohio115 and U.S. 24 and the other north of Paulding on U.S. 127.Commissioner Fred Pieper said that a committee studyingU.S. 24 started to note a com-mon denominator of concernstyle.Jeff Hollis, the principlerestoration specialist with AllTrades, was in charge of thisrestoration and repair projectand supervised a team of skilled masons and designers.Hollis and his team used inge-nuity and creativity to ascer-tain the best way to reset thekeystones and replace the bricks; therefore preservingthe integrity and the historic profile of the building. Thistechnique of ingenious repair could be used as a model for other historical buildings withshifting keystones or other ar-chitectural elements that cre-ate a slip and shift hazard for  brick façades.Jeff Hollis of All Trades andSusan Pieper, representing thePaulding County CarnegieLibrary, will receive their awards at the Ohio HistoricPreservation Office AwardsLuncheon on Sept. 28.

Uponinspection, they identified aserious breach in the integrityof the building. Up until thistime, it was thought that thetriangular brick shifts visibleabove the lower windows,were part of the original de-sign and repair was not ad-dressed. All Trades found thatthese breaches allowed mois-ture to enter the building be-hind the walls, which an-swered why the library had somuch unexplained moisturedamage over the years to theinterior walls.By closely inspecting every brick, every cement feature,All Trades was able to recom-mend a program of compre-hensive restoration and repair of the historic library exterior.All Trades not only expertlyremoved, reset and securedthe heavy keystones with cus-tomized steel rods; they alsoreset and replaced all bricks tothe original location, removedand replaced old mortar, re- paired all exterior windowsand replaced aging storm win-dows.All Trades takes pride in therestoration of historic build-ings and worked above and beyond the scope of the proj-ect to enhance the atheistic of the building, such as replacingunattractive drain scupperswith customized designedscuppers that repeated the de-sign of an existing ornamental

the horses and ponies. One of our hens has little chicks andit’s hard to keep Kevin awayfrom her them.We are also enjoying thehamburger patties we madeand put in the freezer whenwe butchered beef last winter.Tomato slices, lettuce andsweet onions on the grilledhamburgers make a delicious,tasty sandwich.Foremost on our minds isthe sad news of UncleEmanuels’s death. UncleEmanuel, who lived in Har-lan, Ind. turned 79 on July 10.His wife, Aunt Catherine, ismy Dad’s sister and she passed away in July 2011.Emanuel leaves to mourn hissons Emanuel Clyde,William, and Robert and adaughter, Cathy, along withall their partners and children.May God be with them asthey go through this trial inlife. I know how they mustfeel losing both parents intwo years time. Life seemsemptier and it always feelslike someone is missing atfamily gatherings.Life goes on and we mustaccept God’s ways. Trustingand believing in “Him” helpsto make the burdens in lifeThe seventh month of 2013is almost history already. An-other year is going by waytoo fast. I want the boys to pull the onions out of our gar-den today. I don’t know if thesaying is true about not let-ting the August sun hit your onions (for storage). It seems by that time of year, they areready to be pulled and hungup to dry for storage anyways.We are enjoying sweet corntoo now. With corn, tomatoes,cucumbers, zucchini, red beets, lettuce, green beans,and peppers in the garden,meal planning is much easier.The grocery bill also comesdown a lot at this time of year.One evening we had sweetcorn, sliced tomatoes, cucum- ber salad, and sliced cheese.Another evening we hadred potatoes, green beans,fried zucchini, sliced toma-toes, cucumber salad andsliced cheese. Kevin, 7, likesto husk the corn, but wantsme to clean it. He said hestays so busy with all his jobslike picking up eggs, huskingcorn, giving the grass that the boys mowed to the horsesand feeding the dogs. Helikes to feed the corn husks toeasier. The funeral will be onSaturday which we have plans to attend.The annual Coblentz re-union was just held thismonth in Wisconsin. It wasclose to where Uncle Joe andMelvin live. We regretted thatwe weren’t able to make itthere once again.A lady from our church dis-trict is taking orders for  peaches. She has the truck de-liver them all to the housesfor our church district. So peaches will soon be here tocan and freeze. Today we willmake more dill pickles. After this batch I will have enough pickles for the year.I’ll share my recipe for goulash!
1 pound hamburger 1 small onion, chopped8 medium tomatoes, peeledand chunked2 cups macaroni1 quart water Brown hamburger andonion. Add tomatoes andwater. When water starts boil-ing add macaroni.
