help out a lot. We can’t com- plain as God gives us many blessings. How thankful wecan be to have a place to liveand plenty of food in thehouse. It makes us appreciateit all the more.One Sunday afternoon werecently walked back to seewhere Joe and the boys set uphis tree stand in our neigh- bor’s woods. It was an inter-esting nature walk. It is a little bit hilly, but Joe and the boyscleared a nice path to walk.Loretta, 13, has a hard timegetting up the hills. Ben- jamin, 14, and Joseph, 11,hooked arms with her on ei-ther side and helped her getup the hilly areas.They also helped her get upin Joe’s tree stand which is 15feet high. She was glad to beable to sit up there awhile, al-though she was worn outuntil we came back home.Things the rest of us take for granted are so hard for her todo. Do we appreciate our good health enough?Having handicapped chil-dren makes you notice otherswith disabilities a lot moreand be able to feel for them.God has a purpose for every-thing and I try to help encour-age Loretta all I can.She has days when she getsso frustrated. It is hard on her when people stare at her Oct. 18 - Today is Eliza- beth’s friend, Timothy’s, birthday. Happy birthdaywishes go to him! We weregoing to take supper to Tim-othy’s house tonight, but toldhim it’s easier if he wouldcome here instead.Daughter Elizabeth didn’thave to work today, so, weare going to try to make anice cream cake for Timothy.We have never tried it before,so hopefully it will turn outokay. Also on our menu will be either fried or barbecuedchicken and I am not surewhat else we will have yet.Bow season has been in for a while now. This is the firstyear my husband, Joe, hastried bow hunting. He hasn’thad time to go too often yet, but hopes to go tomorrow.Tomorrow is the Eicher re-union on Joe’s dad’s side.Money-wise we will be un-able to attend. It will be inBerne, Ind. at a community building. With gas prices being high, it also makes the prices go up for us when wehire drivers. We had to buyour coal for the winter or atleast some of it, makingthings a little tight right nowwith money. We attended thisreunion three years ago.My husband, Joe, startedworking five days a week atthe factory again which willwhen she tries her best to getup a set of stairs. This is allfor a reason and keeps ushumble. God’s blessings toall!

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 Office•Village Pharmacy•Antwerp 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
