PAYNE – With cable serv-ice scheduled to end on Jan.1, Payne Village Councilheard from the village’s cur-rent cable TV representativeduring their regular scheduledmeeting on Monday evening.The council also heard the lat-est inspection results on vil-lage buildings and severalstreet lights were reported asnonfunctioning.Dennis Ziegler from Newwave Communicationswas present to answer ques-tions and inform council why Newwave is ceasing opera-tion in Payne.“It is not economically fea-sible to operate with so fewcustomers. We would need totie in with another route andthe nearest route is in Flora,Ind., which is 150 milesaway,” said Ziegler.With the potential of 900homes, Ziegler said only 139customers in the Payne areaor 16 percent are using thecable service.There have been other cable companies that haveshown some interest in takingover the Payne area, but ac-cording to Ziegler, none have been serious about the oppor-tunity.“We have given 90-day no-tice and we plan to end serv-ice on Jan. 1, 2014,” he said.If no cable company takes Newwave’s place, they willremove all their visible equip-ment and cable.All the buildings under the jurisdiction of the villagewere inspected in the last fewweeks. “They all seem to bein good shape with no major  problems,” said CouncilmanBill Childs. The fire house isin need of lighted exit signs,which have been ordered.Street lights reported notworking and needed repairedare located on Carlisle Street,Plainfield Drive, and inJacobs Point.A resolution to amend ap- propriations for the policefund in order to pay Ohio po-lice and fire and health insur-ance premiums was presentedas an emergency and was passed unanimously.Zoning inspector Tom Sinnreported that he had author-ized two fence permits andtwo building permits. Sinnalso issued a seven-day verbalfor a junk car illegally parked.Street repair continuesthroughout the village with patching and crack filling.Street grinding is scheduledon Ohio 49 and Ohio 613.

The following are some of the more frequently usedHalloween images and thetruth behind these oft-misin-terpreted decorations.
Bats – 
Dracula can trans-form into a vampire bat andsneak inside of a home unseen,correct? Many people fear batsunnecessarily, and not just for their connection to horror folk-lore. Bats are small mammals,and the only mammals capableof sustained flight. Roughly 70percent of bats are insectivores,and they can be quite helpful tohave around. Bats begin to takeflight at dusk and eat millionsof insects, including peskymosquitoes.But many bats eat fruit. Afew species, like vampire bats,do feed on blood, but largely prefer blood from other ani-mals and occasionally birds.While vampire bats can feedon the blood of humans, suchinstances are rare, and a personwould have to be sleepingwhere the bats live.
Wolves – 
Wolves commu-nicate through a soulful howl,and such howls are often heardin horror films, which hashelped paint a scary picture of wolves. But wolves often havemore to fear from humans thanvice versa. According to
 National Geographic
, graywolves that once populatedlarge portions of NorthAmerica, Europe and Asiawere hunted to near extinctionMany wolves are highlygregarious animals that prefer to interact with other membersof their pack and are not actu-ally dangerous to humans, de-spite how they are portrayed inmovies.
Spiders – 
Large webs wait-ing at the ready to ensnare prey is imagery common tohorror movies. Many peoplefear spiders and other insects,and while all spiders havevenom that they inject when biting their prey, few spidershave bites that are consideredserious and potentially fatal tohumans. The Black Widow,Brown Widow, BrownRecluse, Funnel Web, andBrazilian Wandering spidersare considered some of themore deadly.In many instances, spidersare beneficial insects to havearound the yard and even inthe home because they can eatother unsavory pests.
Ravens – 
These large, black  birds are often associated with bad omens, and some see themas harbingers of death. Butsuch associations are simplyfiction. Ravens are the largest birds in the crow family andfeed on a wide array of foods,including carrion. These birdsare considered the most intelli-gent birds, capable of learningand logic.

Residents’ survey tohelp Antwerp developnew comprehensive plan
ANTWERP – The Village of Antwerp isworking on a new comprehensive plan tohelp create a new long-term vision for de-velopment and redevelopment.As most residents know, improvements toUS 24 make the community much more ac-cessible and it has created new developmentopportunities. A new comprehensive planwill help define what residents want thecommunity to look and feel like in the fu-ture.Essential elements of the process beingfollowed to produce this new comprehen-sive plan are opportunities to learn aboutcommunity attitudes. Specifically, compre-hensive plans are typically built uponknowledge of what people who live andwork in a community like, and what theywould like to see change. They are also builton a good understanding of how residentsview growth and perceived ways to helpmake a community more livable and attrac-tive.There will be two primary opportunitiesto weigh in on the development of a newcomprehensive plan for Antwerp.First, a short survey has been developed.This survey can be taken on-line from a link on the municipal web site of villageo-fantwerp.com or at the village’s Facebook  page. Or, go directly to http://www.survey-monkey.com/s/AntwerpComprehensive-PlanSurveyA paper version of the survey is alsoavailable. Once completed. the survey can be dropped off at the following locations:Town Hall – 118 N. Main St.Depot – 503 W. River St.Antwerp Post OfficeVillage PharmacyAntwerp Exchange Bank or mailed to: Village of Antwerp, POBox 1046, Antwerp OH 45813.The survey will end on Nov. 30.Secondly, sometime early in 2014, theVillage of Antwerp will be holding a com-munity planning workshop. Details aboutthis event will be made available as the se-lected date gets closer. It will include a pres-entation of the survey results – but mostimportantly, it will provide greater opportu-nity for people to share opinions and talk about issues and opportunities facing thecommunity.The information gained from the surveyand workshop will provide essential infor-mation that will help shape how the newcomprehensive plan is being drafted. Oncea draft is completed, it will be shared withthe community before it is considered for adoption by the planning commission andvillage council.Questions may be directed to village ad-ministrator Sara Keeran, 419-258-2371 or antadmin@frontier.com.
