PAULDING – Before a packed house on Tuesdaynight, the Paulding ExemptedSchool Board heard from asecond alleged victim of for-mer teacher Don Schnepp.Defiance businessman, DavidKinkade, a 1985 Pauldinggraduate, faced the board andin the two minutes allottedhim, gave a somber statementconcerning how he, too, wassexually molested bySchnepp, along with his dis-appointment in the actions of the school board.Kinkade joins Barry Vance,who faced the board lastmonth with similar accusa-tions of molestation. BothVance and Kinkade are re-questing the memorial rock bedestroyed and no other memo-rials bearing Don Schnepp’sname be erected on school property.Schnepp died in 2004 after committing suicide. In March,the board was presented$280,585.61 from the estateof Schnepp’s sister, BevSaylor, to the middle school inmemory of Schnepp.The “rock” has been re-moved and according to su- perintendent Bill Hanak, it isin a safe place. Although therock is removed, Vance andKinkade want to see it de-stroyed.Following Kinkade’sspeech, he thanked the boardfor their time and he and hiswife left the meeting.In speaking to the boardKinkade said:“I’m David Kinkade, grad-uated in 1985. I’m also one of the students that was sexuallymolested by Mr. Schnepp myeighth grade and freshmanyear in school. “I do not blame anybody inthis administration or this board for what happened tome in the past. However, I amnot happy with the way every-one acted in this administra-tion that has deflected all theseallegations. You wanted morethan one student to come for-ward so I did my part and I’vecome forward. “All I’ve seen are deflec-tions and denials in any inter-view, in any newspaper. Youannounce that you will de-stroy the rock honoring Mr.Schnepp and not do any futurememorials. I’m not goingaway on this matter and Iwon’t rest until I get that. Ihave already made steps totake this national if need be.“And I just don’t want thisignored. By not having andmaking a public statementyou’re saying it’s okay tohonor a pedophile instead of  previous students that havechildren in school today. Andit’s a slap in the face everytime they walk by that rock. Now, I know it’s gone. But tosay you moved it for safekeeping; that was very hurtful.That’s about all I have to say.Thank you for your time.”Kinkade presented the board with a petition with 579signatures, calling for the me-morial rock’s removal.Following Kinkade, the board heard from former jun-ior high school secretaryDelores Whirrett, who spokein support of Schnepp.Vance, who was present for the meeting, left in the midstof Whirrett’s speech while she praised Schnepp for his in-tegrity and how he could nothave done what he is accusedof.After Kinkade and Whirrettspoke, school board presidentMark Manz read a preparedstatement on behalf of theschool board:“The board has done what itcan to investigate the allega-tions being made, hampered by the passage of time and thefact that school staff, adminis-tration and board have com- pletely changed since the timeof the alleged events. We aretrying to be fair to both sides, but can reach no conclusion asto the truth or falsity of the al-legations being made.“We do not feel there ismore that we can do and we believe we have heard whatthere is to hear about this par-ticular matter; we do not needto have the allegations repeat-ed more times.“We have come to the con-sensus that it would be in the

I don’t consider myself an activist, but there arethings that I think are important enough in thisworld to talk about in hopes of raising aware-ness. The plight of the monarch butterflies isone of them, as you may know, and it excitesme when someone tells me they’ve plantedmilkweed in their garden. (I saw my firstmonarch of the season on May 17, by the way!)There’s another problem out there that con-cerns me and that’s the disappearance of hon-eybees. This industry has had apresence in our county for decades, and those who work init can tell you that this is of rel-evance to everyone, not justthose who are keepers of thebees.We all know that honey beesgather pollen and nectar to feedthemselves and the young beesin their colonies. As they’redoing this, they pollinate plants,which is essential for the repro-duction and fruiting of many of them. Bees are responsible for anincredible one-third of all the edible fruits andvegetables produced. Without sufficient beepollination, you will see lopsided fruits. Thosestrawberries that have weird shapes?Insufficient pollination by the bees is why.Apples are affected by this too.Some of the foods that would be difficult tofind in supermarkets and be expensive to buy if the honey bees disappeared are apples, blue-berries, almonds, cherries, avocados, pump-kins, grapefruit, onions, cucumbers, and or-anges. These crops depend largely on bees to polli-nate them and without bees, other pollinatorswouldn’t take up the slack enough to makelarge-scale production possible. Almonds,grapefruit, and oranges are around 90 percentpollinated by bees.Colony collapse disorder is a compoundproblem that has plagued bees for years but hasseen an increase in recent history. Pesticides(particularly those with neonicontinoids suchas imidacloprid), loss of habitat, mite infec-tions, and other factors contribute to CCD.What can we do as home gardeners to helpthis situation? First of all, limit your use of pes-ticides and if you feel you must use them at all,do it in the evening when the bees aren’t active.Systemic pesticides are of particular concern because they become incorporated into the plant itself and are an ever-present threat. It’s estimated that 50-80 percent of the world’s food sup- ply is directly or indirectly af-fected by pollination by honey bees. Since year round ediblefood production is in demand,that places even more impor-tance on the bees pollinating the plants that feed us. We can plantnectar-producing flowers that provide blooms throughout thesummer, so that bees have plen-ty of food for their own off-spring, thereby helping to keep bee populations up. Dandelions provide one of the earliest sources of food for bees and other  pollinators so even though many people don’tlike them in their lawns, they serve a noble pur- pose in the natural world. As one who is allergic to bee stings, I can’treally raise my own bees like I’d like to, but it’s becoming a very popular backyard activity.Even if you can’t keep bees yourself, you couldhost some hives for a local bee keeper. Eating local honey has been said to reduceallergies, but there is no scientific proof that ithelps. Still, honey contains vitamins and min-erals and is a source of energy as a naturalsugar, not to mention that it tastes good!The next time you see a honey bee flittingfrom flower to flower, you might want to offer a prayer of thanks for all they do for you.

We arrived homeafter midnight which is some-thing we’re not used to doinganymore. We could sleep latethe next morning, though,since it was not a church Sun-day.Sister Susan had her 38th birthday on Saturday, May10. She had us all invited totheir house on Sunday for dinner in honor of her birth-day.Brother Albert, SarahIrene, and six of their childrendrove to Verena and Susan’shouse on Saturday eveningwith horses and buggy. Theystayed until Sunday after-noon. Albert’s moved to thewest end of their communityso they live closer than be-fore, around 15 – 17 milesfrom here now. They madethe trip in 1- 1 /2 hours. Al- bert’s are in the process of  building all new buildings sothey have a lot of work ahead.They are renting a houseclose by their new land.Daughter Lovina will be 10on Sunday. She is excited soshe can now start sitting withthe girls in church instead of  beside me. It makes them feelso much more mature whenthey don’t have to sit with a parent anymore. It will be achange for me to not have anylittle ones beside me. Joe stillAnother rainy day! It has been rainy all week. We wereable to get all the clothesdried on Monday eventhough there was a shower after the clothes were on thelines. We need to do laundryagain and sure am hoping for a nice day on Friday or Satur-day.Tonight the men from our church district will gather here to practice singing songsfrom the Ausbund, our Ger-man church songbook. It is agood way to get the younger men to learn how to lead allthe songs. I need to makesomething today for a snack to serve to them after thesinging.We are enjoying asparagus,rhubarb, mushrooms and win-ter onions, all of those earlygarden goodies. The dande-lions are over with for another year. Once the flowers comeout the greens become bitter and not so good to eat.Saturday afternoon our vis-itors were sister Liz, Levi,and their four children.

Commissioners’ Journal 
Commissioners’ Journal May 14, 2014This 14th day of May, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners met in regular sessionwith the following members present: Tony Zart-man, Roy Klopfenstein, Fred Pieper and NolaGinter, Clerk.
Luke Jackson met with the commissioners todiscuss his Eagle Scout project. He plans to land-scape the four corners of the courthouse square.He reported he has raised a portion of the pro-jected cost. Luke would like to start the projectthis weekend and hopes to have it completed byMemorial Day.Bob Arend and Brion Hanenkratt – Mr.Arend acknowledged receipt of the change inradio frequency the commissioners applied for through the FCC. He noted that moving for-ward, they need information on the program-ming of the current radios, as some will need tobe reprogrammed.Hanenkratt remarked that though usingMARCS would be great, he realizes the user fees and the cost of new radios would be pro-hibitive for the county.Arend reminded the commissioners and Ha-nenkratt that radio service from inside any steelbuilding will be an issue no matter what systemis being used. His topographic study showed weak spots on the east and southeast sections of thecounty.Hanenkratt suggested putting new repeaters inthe vehicles and using the changed frequency for a trial run.Arend and Hanenkratt will work on repro-gramming the radios that need it. Arend will work with ERS to order repeaters.Brenda Crawford, board of elections, talked tothe commissioners about the ADA project at theOSU Extension Building. This building serves asa voting precinct and needs to be better handi-capped accessible. The board of elections has se-cured a grant to help fund the project.
