Although no drugswere found in any of these, Deitrick said the occupants of each confirmeddrugs had been in the vehicles in therecent past.School locker searches have beenconducted at six locations. Four of these were out of the county.According to Deputy Deitrick schoolofficials handle the situation should analert be made.Twice the pair has provided trackingof individuals. One time they searchedfor a subject who ran from an officer.A coat was located, but the man wasnot. It is believed he got a ride fromsomeone.The other occasion involved a manwho ran from an Ohio State HighwayPatrol trooper following a vehicle pur-suit. This man was not found either,and is also thought to have been picked up by another person. Nine demonstrations have been pre-sented for schools, 4-H groups andcivic organizations around the county.These have been very well receivedwith the pair getting numerous com- pliments.Jano and Deputy Deitrick continuemonthly training in Fort Wayne at theacademy and daily training at home.They are looking forward to addition-al training in May.

My response to that is‘Fabulous!’“I want to make their tax-free busi-ness more difficult. I want the people peddling dope through PauldingCounty to know we are watching themand we will catch them,” he contin-ued.“I have an energetic crew workingthe streets aggressively right now andthe taxpayers should be proud. When Ican afford to add a second K9 to our team, I certainly will,” Sheriff Landersconcluded.Donations are still being acceptedfor Jano’s training and care.

OAKWOOD – Again Monday at OakwoodVillage Council, there was considerable concern re-garding filling the council seats vacated by ToddDangler’s resignation and the passing of Councilwoman Vicki Long. Councilman BeauLeatherman was absent, so a meeting could not beheld due to a lack of a quorum.However, before the meeting started, Mayor Erhard “Bud” Henke appointed Kelly Tumblin andswore her into the council seat being vacated byDangler. At the last council meeting, council agreedto invite Tumblin to the council meeting on April 28to discuss the possibilities of her serving out the re-mainder of Dangler’s term on council. Since therewas no quorum, Mayor Henke chose to appointTumblin instead of having her elected by vote of council. Tumblin will be serving out Todd Dangler’sremaining term.Since he now had a quorum, Mayor Henke start-ed the regular council meeting by reading the fol-lowing remarks to memorialize the passing of Councilwoman Vicky Long:“We wish to make special note of the passing of our council member, Vicky Long. She spent manyyears with Oakwood EMS and a dedication to do allshe could for those in need. The same desire was partof her everyday life and her time on council.

Members of the Special Response Team (SRT) of the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office conducted training Saturday, April 26 atthe Antwerp School. Their day consisted of reviewing first aid procedures, handling tactical situations and building clearing. On-duty Antwerp officers even stopped by for a while and were worked into a couple of scenarios, once portraying “bad guys.” Theeight-man team was also joined by several deputies who aren’t currently part of the team. Training is usually held monthly in athree- or four hour-block of time. Here the team has a “suspect” pinned down in the school front entry as he holds a “hostage.”

The Amish Cook
By: Lovina Eicher
(Good Friday). The Amishchildren won’t go as Good Fri-day is an Amish holiday in thiscommunity. The half day is tomake up one of the misseddays due to the bad weather this winter. Our five school-agechildren went back to schoolMonday after a week homefrom spring break.Daughter Susan’s handsseem to be healing gradually.She was moved to another jobwhich she greatly appreciated.She is feeling better every dayand hopefully it will all behealed soon.The farmers down the roadare planting their fields. Itlooks like they might be plant-ing potatoes. Timothy’s (Eliza- beth’s friend) third maredelivered a foal on Sundaynight. He now has four foals athis place as Susan’s ponyRoxie and her foal are there,too. We want to go see the four new foals sometime. They’realways so frisky and full of life.We are in the process of get-ting a permit accepted to buildon a ramp to the house. Lorettawill be so glad for it. I wouldlike to thank all you readers for you’re support you have given.It is appreciated very much.Joe would also like to getsome sidewalks made to thehouse before church servicesare held here. It will help a lotto keep dirt from gettingdragged in.My rhubarb and horseradishare peeping through. The tulipsIt is turning out to be a nice,sunny day. The temperature isalmost 40. We awoke onemorning this week with theground all covered with snow.It stayed cold for a few dayswith the temperature goingdown to 22 one night.My husband Joe and the boys planted 30-40 pounds of  potatoes on Saturday. Joe tilledall the gardens but I haven’thad a chance to plant anything.I would like to plant peas,radishes, lettuce, and onions.At least a little of each so wehave some ready earlier. Thatdepends on the weather, Iguess.Sister Emma and her daugh-ters came yesterday to assistdaughter Verena and I withcleaning for our upcomingchurch services. Walls and ceil-ings were washed off, furniturecleaned, windows cleaned, cur-tains washed, etc. I thought wereally accomplished a lot. Lastweek the girls and I cleaned themaster bedroom and bath.Everything seems to be gettingdone on schedule.Saturday the children rakedmost of the yard. It still needsto be raked in some areas. Itlooks like dandelion greens are popping through. I hope to golook for some today. The chil-dren want to color eggs for Easter so dandelion salad will be a good way to use up someof those colored eggs.The school planned a half day school for tomorroware looking hearty, too. I’mwatching to see when the as- paragus pops also. I lovespring!After a long winter it will beeven more special. God hascreated a wonderful world.How often do we take all our needs for granted? Do we ap- preciate our blessings enough?I read a saying recently thatsaid “what if God only gaveyou tomorrow for what you prayed for today”. How true tolife, people tend to get so busythey truly miss the purpose wewere put on this earth to beginwith. I hope everyone had avery blessed Easter.Try this recipe!
