With a sigh of relief, thecalendar reminds us thelong-awaited first day of spring has finally arrived.And after enduring a long,cold, snowy winter, it’s nowtime for Paulding Countyvillages to assess how theyfared in what will go downas one of the most challeng-ing winters in history.Snow removal, street re- pairs, potholes, overtime,frozen pipes, and other un-usual hardships and addedexpenses have taxed com-munities since early January.For the village of Oakwood, administrator John Keyes reports that over-all the village is in prettygood shape.“We had two homes thatwere without water due tofrozen lines,” said Keyes.Overall, Keyes believesOakwood escaped withouttoo many potholes or muchovertime; where the villagehas seen an increase is in thesalt usage, fuel costs, andnatural gas bills to heat itsfour buildings.Fiscal Officer SusanBarron has seen a jump inheating the fire house, water  building, EMS building, andthe town hall. “Last year for the three winter months, wespent $5,535 heating the buildings while this year wehave totaled $7,782,” saidBarron.There has been a slight in-crease in road salt and fuelfor its vehicles.The Village of Antwerp islooking at a $40,000 setback when it comes to expensescaused by the winter weath-er.“We’ve had water main breaks, equipment break-downs, and other expensesdue to frozen pipes,” saidAntwerp treasurer LorettaBaker.The village’s front endloader required a major re- pair in the amount of $6,600,

A non- budgeted item addressed bythe village was icing in thewater tower due to malfunc-tioning sensors in the tank thatmeasure the water level.Repair on the tower totaled$3,500.Water lines under Ohio 49froze, causing residents to nothave water and forcing the vil-lage to close the highway for aday in order to make necessaryrepairs. The non-budgeted re- pair was $4,003.Like the other villages with-in the county, Payne isequipped to manage their win-ter issues when it comes tosnow removal. However, thisyear, the challenge to stayabove the task was often times beyond their capabilities.“We had to contract out for some of our snow removal. Inaddition to our own depart-ment working, we also paid anadditional $5,487 for snow re-moval by outside contractors,”said Fiscal Officer CherylHalter.The job of snow removaland keeping the streets clear required 100 extra-man hours.“We know we have pot-holes that will need repaired.We are scheduled to havesome of our streets sealed and paved later this spring and wehope to take care of the pot-hole problem at that time,”said Mayor Terry Smith.Last Wednesday’s quick snowstorm that dumped over seven inches of snow in thearea was the worst snowstormof the winter season, accord-ing to Paulding street supervi-sor Jerry Smith.“It was quick and a very wetsnow that delivered another challenge for our equipmentand manpower,” said Smith.Paulding’s four-man crewand its four trucks can usuallyclear the village in six to eighthours. “I know the public isgetting tired of all the snowand to be honest we are gettingtired of cleaning the streets, but it’s our job and overall Ithink we have done a good job,” said Smith.Although the plowing sea-son is winding down, it is im- portant to remove vehiclesfrom the streets in order toclear the snow properly.“With so much snow, resi-dents often times will havetheir driveways cleaned, al-lowing snow to blow right back out into the streets andcausing more problems,” saidvillage administrator HarryWiebe. The administrator went on to comment on howPaulding snow removal has been superior compared toother communities similar insize to Paulding.The village encountered be-tween 10 and 12 frozen serv-ice lines. These lines run be-tween the main to the shut off valve in the street right-of-way.“To give you an idea howthe long periods of cold tem- peratures effect the lines, wehad a dozen this year and inthe past 15 years we had one,”said Smith.There have been a fewwater main breaks with thefrost line penetrating theground by as much as threefeet. The repair of water main breaks have been a little moretime consuming due to thefrozen ground.“Because of the frozenground and needing a jack-hammer to break through thearea in question, it often timestakes longer to determinewhere the actual break is locat-ed,” said Smith.Concerning costs, hours onthe job, and assistance, the vil-lage has encountered its shareof increased expenses. In2012-13 there were 90 hoursof overtime issued for snowand ice control while this year the number of hours increasedto 380.Cost of salt has nearly dou- bled from $6,000 last year to$10,000 so far in 2013-14.There was no outside con-tract for assistance concerningdowntown snow removal in2012-13; however, the villagehas spent $10,800 this year.Potholes will be an immedi-ate issue once the weather warms up and the existingwater is eliminated from theholes. “Once the water is outand the temperatures consis-tently get to the upper 20s wewill be able to fill the pot-holes,” said Wiebe.Wiebe went on to say howthe street department employ-ees, while working on snowremoval and other issues, haveother continuing responsibili-ties such as digging graves.“These long extended coldspells have been tough on theequipment as well as the crewworking outside in the ele-ments,” he said.“It’s been a long, tough win-ter and we are all looking for-ward to spring. I want to thank everyone for their patienceand for those who removedtheir cars from the streets sowe could do our job,” saidSmith.will tentatively be completed by this summer; however,there is a $5 savings if you re-serve your copy early.To pre-order the book sendchecks to Mile From TownPress, P.O.

their first son, Daniel.The weather was hot, theydid not know a lot of peopleand both missed their nativecounties and home. Milliewas miserable. Herb made apromise to her that theywould only stay in Pauldingfor five years. Needless to say, they re-mained in Paulding and be-came parents of three sons.It was very important to getelectricity into the rural areasas WWII became a reality.With electrification, farmerswere able to produce milk andfood more effectively. In fact,Nice said that had it not beenfor the rural areas beinghooked up to electricity,America probably could nothave won the war.In 1949, Herb and Millielost their oldest son, Danny, ina drowning accident. Theystruggled with their loss, butthe Paulding communityshowed an outpouring of sup- port and love for the family.Herb and Millie becamemembers of the FirstPresbyterian Church wherehe sang in the choir. Herb wasactive in many clubs and or-ganizations, but always hadtime for a smile and time toask how you were.One club the Monroes wereactive in was the SchoonersClub. This was a church or-ganization and was activefrom 1943-1993. Herb con-tinued to work for Paulding-Putnam until he retired in1978 and then worked part-time for another 23 years.Jane Nice met Herb andMillie in 1992 when her fam-ily attended the FirstPresbyterian Church. Janeand her husband were greetedwarmly by Herb. Millie wasnicely dressed and very digni-fied. Nice soon picked up thatMillie was suffering fromAlzheimer’s Disease.However, Herb always keptMillie well cared for andmaintained her dignitythroughout her battle with thedreaded disease.Eventually Millie was sentto a nursing home where shelost her battle in January,1997. Herb visited her every-day, took her for hair appoint-ments and above all loved hisMillie unconditionally.His level of caregivingearned him the Ohio FirstLady’s award for Elder Caregiving in December of 1997. In 1998 the PauldingCounty Senior Center held aHerb Monroe Day in hishonor.Jane was intrigued with thisman, his humbleness, and hisways of looking at situations.In 2002, she began her biog-raphy on Herb and named it
