Railroad tracks formerlyknown as the Maumee andWestern railway line acrossthe northern third of Paulding County have gottena new lease on life.Michigan SouthernRailroad Company, a sub-sidiary of Pioneer Railcorp, purchased the tracks lastDecember. They now oper-ate the line under the busi-ness name Napoleon,Defiance & Western Rail -way Company (NDW).According to ShaneCullen, vice president of transportation and operationswith Pioneer Railcorp, near-ly a quarter million dollarswere spent to open the sec-tion of tracks between Ceciland Defiance. The trackswere put back into operationOct. 24.“This project was made possible and completed by public and private partner-ship,” said Cullen. “OhioRail Development Com mis -sion contributed along with NDW.”Approximately 17 milesof tracks angle through thenorthwest corner of HarrisonTownship, the south half of Carryall Township includingAntwerp, the midsection of Crane Township includingCecil and the northern half of Emerald Township.Previously only the west-ern portion of the line wasusable; the tracks from Cecilto Defiance were in such dis-repair they could not be used.This reopened section of tracks involves seven rail-road crossings. Two are inCecil, one is on US 127 inCrane Township. The re-maining four are atTownship Roads 115, 232,133 and 143 in EmeraldTownship.Drivers will want to makesure they watch for traffic atthese crossings.Cullen said, “All crossingsare and should be consideredactive. Trains will initiallyrun on an as needed basis. Isuspect in time a routine willemerge.”He added, “Motoristsshould always expect a trainand yield at railroad cross-ings regardless of any ex- pected train frequency.”He noted that for the firstfew runs NDW will manual-ly flag all crossings.The major rehabilitation project will allow all ship- pers on the line to route traf-fic via both CSXTransportation to the eastand Norfolk Southern to thewest.Mike Carr, president andCEO of Pioneer Railcorp,said, “After purchasing thisline in December 2012, amajor priority was to rehabseveral miles of previouslyinoperable track betweenDefiance and Cecil.“In doing so, we are nowable to offer our eastern ship- pers NS access via Wood - burn, Ind. and our westernshippers CSXT access via

The Amish Cook
By: Lovina Eicher
my daughters, Susan, 17, andVerena, 15, and I cleaned anAmish lady’s house. It was a pretty big house. It had four rooms and a bathroom up-stairs and three bedroomsdownstairs.The six of us washed all thewalls, ceilings, windows andsome furniture in the wholehouse. We were tired whenwe finished, but was glad tohelp her out. Her healthhasn’t been the best and sherecently had a hospital stay.She fixed lunch for us, whichwas delicious! We had packed our lunch, but her hotmeal tasted a lot better thanour cold sandwiches. My neck was sore the nextday from all the overheadwashing. The wall mops areso much easier than when wewould have to use a steplad-der and wash the walls andceiling with rags.We are still having toma-toes, but they are the greenones that we picked and areletting them ripen. The tasteisn’t as good as when they are picked red from the garden.Applesauce is beingcanned by a lot of women inthe community. I still have plenty, so I didn’t need to canany. Although we are enjoy-ing apples for fresh eating.We awoke to a world fullof snow flurries. The flakeswere big and flaky, but noneof it stuck to the ground. Itwas enough to get the chil-dren excited about winter weather, especially sledding. My husband, Joe, startedour coal stove which helpskeep the house cozy on thesecold mornings. A few morn-ings we’ve had temperaturesin the upper 20’s. Leaves areemptying off the trees fast.What colorful scenes painted by our Master Artist.The sun hasn’t been out toomuch this week. It seems thesolar freezer is still keepingcharged enough though. This colder weather hasmade the deer move aroundmore. Timothy and Mose (thegirls’ special friends) have both been lucky and each hasshot a deer with their com- pound bows this month. Ben- jamin, 14, and Joseph, 11,take turns going with Joewhen he goes crossbow hunt-ing for deer. Next week the first nineweeks of school is over.Teacher conferences are al-ready being scheduled.Where has the time gone sofast?Last week one day, sister Emma and her two daughters,Such a healthy snack.With the colder weather winter coats are being pulledout of the closets. Beforelong, also snowpants, mittensand scarves. It gets darker earlier at night so our evenings seem to come ear-lier.I tried this meatball recipethis week. Everyone seemedto like it. I thought it was easyto make. I made spaghetti toalong with them. A blessedautumn to all!

Passed Away 21 Years Ago - November 5, 1992
You were taken from us so suddenly. We still wonder why. Our hearts still ache as each day passes by.How long will this emptiness inside us remain? We miss you so much, long to see you again. You left and dwell with the Lord up above, but the memories of youare filled with such love. We’ve said our goodbyes and in faith we stand, for one day in heaven, we’ll walk hand in hand. You are always in our hearts. In time we will see each other again.
Deeply missed by:Bill & Julie, Jennifer & Jessica, Jarrod & Jorddan

In The Garden
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
 pumpkin would be disquali-fied. Even having a crack would eliminate a pumpkinfrom competition. So, mov-ing these big boys can be a te-dious process.This year’s winner wasgrown by Tim and SusanMathison from California andweighed in at a whopping2,032 pounds. That set a newworld record, beating the pre-vious one set just last year bya grower from Rhode Island,which weighed 2,009 pounds.Each year’s winner is thentaken to the New York Botan-ical Garden where it is on dis- play for a few weeks.Even if you don’t want toget into growing the world’slargest pumpkin, growing bigones can be fun to do. Just getsome giant seeds, ‘Dill’s At-lantic Giant’ are readily avail-able, and see what happens.One tip, pumpkins are heavyfeeders so don’t forget to use plenty of compost and fertil-izer.Who knows, maybe TheGreat Pumpkin will rise fromyour pumpkin patch nextHalloween.

isn’t even about linear size.It’s all about weight.Competitive growers work most of the year on some as- pect of their obsession (andthat’s what it is), whether it bein amending the soil, re-searching seeds, or tendingearly-started seedlings. Thereare pumpkin clubs and theymeet regularly to discuss this pumpkin-growing business.But, for all the rivalry that ex-ists among the growers, theyhelp each other, too. Every-one wants to see the pump-kins grow even larger, soknowledge is shared.Competitions are held inOct. and the weighing process isn’t easy. One of the biggest challenges is trans- porting the large pumpkins toa weighing station. When a pumpkin is that large, there’salways a danger of breakingit open, in which case, theHalloween is now behindus, but Thanksgiving loomslarge and so do the pumpkins.Everywhere you look, yousee the orange orbs, on frontporches, in the groceries, andsome are still sitting in thepumpkin patch.But, not all are carved asJack-o-Lanterns. Not all willend up on your plate in a fewweeks. (Mmm...pie!) Someare grown just for the sheer joy and competition of grow-ing them. I’m talking aboutthe quest for the largestpumpkin ever grown.This is serious businessamong those who grow thegiants. There are seeds called‘Dill’s Atlantic Giant’, ‘Silver Bullet,’ and some are a num-ber indicating size (inpounds) coupled with thename of the grower. For ex-ample, 1725 Harp seeds areseeds from a pumpkin thatChristy Harp of Massillon,Ohio, grew to a record 1,725pounds to win the competi-tion in 2009.Pumpkins weighing in withnumbers like 1,500 or morepounds aren’t your nice,round, vibrant orange pump-kins. When one gets to be thatsize, gravity does a number on it and it starts looking likea tired Sumo wrestler. But,competitive pumpkin grow-ing isn’t about appearances. It
Court buildings to light upwith new updated bulbs
By JIM LANGHAMFeature Writer
PAULDING – Paulding County commission-ers have authorized installation of new fixturesand updated light bulbs in court facilities that isexpected to save county taxpayers significantlyin lighting expense after five years.Commissioners have authorized installation inboth the courthouse and county court building.According to Commissioner Chairman FredPieper, since the project has been authorized be-fore Dec. 15 of this year, there will be an AEPrebate of $844 for the county court and $6,300for the Paulding County Courthouse.“Right now we have old style fluorescentbulbs, 4 by 8 feet, known as T-12 bulbs,” saidPieper. “They are no longer being made; the gov-ernment is phasing them out.“Our maintenance guy submitted a bulb re-quest to a bulb supplier to purchase a bunch of those bulbs,” continued Pieper. “We told him tohold out on the order because we planned to re-place the bulbs. With knowledge of the rebate,we decided that rather than stock up on bulbs thatweren’t being made anymore, it would be better to replace our fixtures and upgrade.”The process would include installation of newfixtures to house the modernization of bulbs.Pieper said that the contractor estimated thatafter three years, cost of installation in the countycourt would pay for itself, just in the smaller amount of electricity being used. It was esti-mated that the same would be true for the Pauld-ing County Courthouse 5.2 years after installation.“After that, the savings for the tax payers willreally be significant,” said Pieper.The cost of installing the new system into thecounty court, minus rebate, is $2,827. In thePaulding County Courthouse, cost, minus rebate,is $31,798.Pieper said that due to changed fixture sizes,there would be some touch-up painting requiredfollowing installation. The commissioner notedthat following installation, officials are planningon authorizing painting in the courthouse.“It’s been 17 years since we’ve last done any-thing like that,” commented Pieper. “We aredoing all that we can to maintain this facility andkeep up with it.”
