PAULDING – Farmers stilltalk about the 2010 reappraisalof their farmlands that resultedin increases in real estate taxes,some more than double.The triennial update of 2013 promises to be another mile-stone of sorts as PauldingCounty farm owners will againsee the numbers rise on their tax bills come January.Paulding County is one of 23 counties statewide that willsee an adjustment in their cur-rent agricultural use valuation(CAUV) values due tochanges in soil values set bythe Ohio Department of Taxation.According to PauldingCounty Auditor ClaudiaFickel, counties are on a six-year rotation for real estatereappraisals with a triennialupdate set midway through thecycle.Her office recently receiveda new list of Paulding Countysoil values from the state. Withthe exception of quarries/pits,all 63 soil types in the countyhave been upgraded.“Knowing the prices aregoing up, people are con-cerned,” said Fickel. “We havehad a few calls. We are able toshow the increase in soil value, but unable to show the estimat-ed taxes until approved by thestate.”Fickel noted that her officewill not be able to give esti-mates of the new tax billamounts due to several taxlevies appearing on theGeneral Election in November.She said that by the time theelection results have been cer-tified by the board of elections,sent to the state where effectiverates are calculated then re-turned to her office for taxes to be calculated it will be nearlytime to send out the tax bills.She said the new valuationsfor the soil types will be en-tered into their computer sys-tem in the next few weeks.After Nov. 1 she expectslandowners to be able to check their new valuation on her of-fice’s website: www.paulding-countyauditor.com“This change comes fromthe state and is basically driven by the market,” the Auditosaid.Fickel stressed that for peo- ple enrolled in the CAUV pro-gram, the market value of thesoil is not taxed. Instead thesoil rate is used to calculatetaxes. She did note, however,that the land’s value is part of the complicated formula used by the state to determine thesoil values.Paulding County clay (Pc) isthe county’s dominant soil typecomprising 26 percent (69,741acres) of the county. The valu-ation was raised from $670 per acre to $1,600 per acre for cropland and $850 for woods.Latty silty clay (Lc) makesup nearly another quarter of thecounty at 23.1 percent (62,040acres). Values for this type in-creased from $980 per acre to$2,110 an acre for croplandand $1,360 for woods.

PAULDING – The JohnPaulding Historical Societywill be hosting a beer andfood pairing and it is a brandnew event for them. The beer and food pairing will beheld from 7-10 p.m.,Saturday, Oct. 5 in Barn 2 atthe museum. Did you knowthat the oldest recipes for  beer were written on stoneover 5,000 years ago?Ashley Olwin Doctor andher husband are the organiz-ers of the event. Doctor said,“My husband and I got theidea after attending the wineand cheese fundraiser at themuseum this spring.“Although we both en- joyed the evening and wouldcome back again, neither of us are wine drinkers and al-ways choose beer over wine.We knew there had to beother beer drinkers like us.”So, get ready to try some beer as there will be eight ta- bles each showcasing threedifferent craft beers, and, of course, there will be food tocompliment the beer. Thefull menu will includegumbo, brats, sliders,cheesecake and more.Doctor said, “We have been blessed with eight tabledonors. Each table donor sponsors a food sample andthree beers that have beenspecifically picked to work well with that food.”Each guest will be given acertain amount of tastingtickets and then can pick andchoose which beers theywant to taste from eachtable.Doctor also noted, “Weare showcasing crafts brewsfrom all over the world. Nodiscrimination. As they arecraft brews, they do lean onthe more expensive side, butthat isn’t a prerequisite for inclusion on our list. Wehave had some questions onthe home brews. We will not be offering any home brewsthis year, but would be agreat idea for next year. Beer will be served in samplingcups and guests will not begiven a full 12 ounces.”Brian Martin, owner of Puckerbrush Pizzeria, is a brew-master and has beenchoosing the beers and thefood. The logistics and struc-ture of the beer and foodtasting will not follow that of the wine tasting in that it will be a more casual affair.The entertainment will belive music by JoshDenning’s band, CorduroyRoad.“Pre-sale tickets are avail-able for $20 each and at thedoor for $25 each. Ticketsare limited, so we encouragecommunity members to gettheir tickets early. This willhelp us better estimate howmuch food and beer to bring,” said Doctor.Tickets can be purchasedat the museum on Tuesdays

We are in a pattern much more similar to what weexperienced last summer, moisturewise.“Some people are fooled when wehave some rain, but in dry to drought periods, rain still falls, but in muchless quantities,” continued McCoy.“We may get rain but it will amount toabout half of what we would receiveunder normal circumstances.”McCoy said that the NationalWeather Service projects that temper-atures will be from normal to slightlyabove normal for the first half of October. Normal highs have now low-ered to the upper 60s and will drop tothe middle 50s by the first of  November. Normal lows, said McCoy, havenow fallen to the mid to upper 40swith normal range falling to the 30s by the end of the October.“The long range forecast doesn’t

The Amish Cook

from helping Emma, theneighbor boy ran over to letJoe know he spotted the calf.Joe, Benjamin and Josephtook off to try to capture it.When they got closer thecalf took off, but Benjaminwas able to catch up with it,wrestle it to the ground andtook a rope and held it downuntil Joe and Joseph caughtup.So, now five days later it isfinally back in our barn andlooks like it’s still doing okay.We had almost given up thatwe would ever see it again. Ithink Joe and I will sleepmuch better tonight knowingthat calf is back in the barn. Itwas also a worry that it couldget out on a road and cause anaccident.The reason Joe wanted thecalves to feed out, is that we aregetting 400 bushels of corn thatwe are trading with a nearbyfarmer for our beans.Whenever the calves get big enough, we will keep oneor two to butcher for our beef and sell the rest. I told thechildren not to give the calvesnames or to make pets out of them, because they will beour food someday.I still remember when Iwas a young girl at home dad butchered one of our old milk cows named Whitey.Some of us children had ahard time eating the beef thatyear, because we used to milk Whitey and we didn’t want toWe feel blessed to have re-ceived some much neededrain tonight. It wasn’t thatmuch, but it will help. Wehaven’t had any rain in quitesome time, so everything wasdry.Today, daughters, Susanand Verena, and I went to sis-ter Emma’s house to assistthem in preparing for the up-coming church services theywill host at their house. Lordwilling daughters Elizabethand Susan will be baptizedthat day. Susan’s specialfriend, Mose, will also be baptized with them. What a blessing to see them want toaccept Jesus Christ as their Savior.Last Friday, we had four calves delivered here. Allfour together weighed 785lbs. We put them in the barn.When Joe came home, hemoved them to an outside pen. With it being a new place to the calves, they were pretty wild and two of themescaped through the fence.Joe and Susan were able tocatch one, but the other onetook off for the woods behindus. Joe and the children andsome of our neighbors lookedall over and only heard fromone person that saw it.After three hours of search-ing, they finally gave up. Inthe next few days Joe and the boys kept looking and no signof the calf.Before we came homeeat her.When daughter, Elizabeth,was younger and she saw us butcher chickens, it dawnedon her that that’s wherechicken comes from. It took her a long time before shecould eat chicken again.That’s farm life, I guess.Pumpkin season will soon be here. Try this fudge:
3 cups white sugar 3 tablespoons light corn syrup1/2 teaspoon salt1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla ex-tract1 cup milk 1/2 cup pumpkin puree1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice1/2 cup butter Butter or grease one 8x8-inch pan. In a 3-quartsaucepan, mix together sugar,milk, corn syrup, pumpkinand salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly.Reduce heat to medium andcontinue boiling. Do not stir.When mixture registers232° F (110° C) on candythermometer, or forms a soft ball when dropped into coldwater, remove from pan fromheat. Stir in pumpkin piespice, vanilla and butter.Cool to lukewarm (110° For 43° C) on candy ther-mometer.) Beat mixture untilit is very thick and loses someof its gloss. Quickly pour intoa greased 8x8-inch pan.When firm, cut into 36squares.

Commissioners pass resolutions
The Paulding County com-missioners met on Sept. 11.Tony Zartman moved toadopt a resolution directing thecounty auditor to amend 2013appropriations by the follow-ing: General Fund/Sheriff/Sup- plies/Jail/Outhousinginthe amount of $100,000; Ex-tension Center/Refunds in theamount of $522.01.Another resolution was passed requiring that all publicmonies be deposited with thetreasurer or the properly desig-nated depository within 24hours of collection by an offi-cial of public office.If the amount exceeds$1,000 or a lesser amount andcannot be safeguarded, the public official must then de- posit the money on the next business day; now there is a policy allowing public moniescollected within 24 hours andless than $1,000 to be held anddeposited no later than three business days after receiving, provided the receipts can besafeguarded.The county auditor was di-rected to create new line itemsin funds to track the reimburse-ment from Workers’ Compen-sation.Sheriff Jason Landers pre-sented his 2013 projections asof Sept. 4. With the increase inthe average of inmates, the jailsupply/outhousing line itemwill fall short of its appropria-tion. The sheriff reported re-cently exchanging severalweapons for new 40 caliber Glocks to be distributed to hisdeputies, at no additional ex- pense. He noted he has beenmonitoring supply purchasesclosely to maintain fiscal re-sponsibility.Claudia Fickel and Lou AnnWannemacher reported thecounty audit will be a bidding process next year.Aaron Timm reported arollover accident involving anasphalt truck. There were noserious injuries, but the truck will no doubt be considered to-taled.The commissioners re-quested signs be made for thenew parking lot. Timm notedthe grassy parking lot north of the fairgrounds will bemowed for the Flat Rock Creek Festival and fill dirtwill be applied next week.Judge John DeMuth metwith the commissioners todiscuss the policy on makingdeposits. Once the commis-sioners adopt a policy, other offices may adopt it as their own.Judge DeMuth noted theJuvenile Court/Probation has been funded primarilythrough a $50,000 grant fromthe Department of YouthServices. He also explained“reclaim” revenue as incen-tive for not using local facili-ties (as opposed to state) for holding juveniles.He noted the cost of hous-ing an adult in a state facilityaverages $30,000 a year. Thecost to house a juvenile at thestate level is $180,000 per year. This year, Judge De-Muth was expecting the grantand $59,000 in reclaim rev-enue. The state has recentlydecided to hold the reclaimdollars and instead award“targeted” reclaim revenue.The targeted areas are the moreheavily populated, metropoli-tan areas, which means lessfunding to the sparsely popu-lated, rural areas. Judge De-Muth is projecting a shortfall inseveral of his expense lineitems due to this lack of fund-ing.
