FINDLAY – It was a battle of theRaiders in the Division IV softball region-al championship at Findlay.Thanks to a pair of first inning RBI sin-gles, it was the Wayne Trace Raiders whoearned their berth in the state semifinalswith a 2-1 win over Lakota at MarathonFields.Wayne Trace, who is now 22-7, ad-vances to take on Cuyahoga Heights (20-3) in Friday’s first semifinal with a 10 a.m.start at Firestone Stadium in Akron. TheRedskins defeated Berlin Center WesternReserve 2-0 in their regional champi-onship matchup.“It’s a great feeling,” noted Raider headcoach Jack Baumle. “These girls haveworked so hard and to see all of that hardwork be rewarded is great.”The red, white and blue got all the of-fense it needed in the first inning. Withtwo outs, Libby Stabler and BaileyBergman recorded back-to-back singles toleft. Carley Wright followed with another single to left field that scored Stabler be-fore Addison Baumle added another RBIsingle that plated Bergman.“I thought once we hit the ball the waywe did in the first that we might just takeoff from there,” continued the Raider mentor. “But it didn’t work out that way.Thankfully it worked out for us though.”Although Wayne Trace left both Wrightand Baumle on base, it would be enoughto hold on from there.Baumle had shut down the Raiders of Lakota in the first inning in order but itwould be the only time on the day. In thesecond, Destiny Long-Myer had a singlewith two outs before Baumle struck outsecond baseman Aspen Ray for the thirdout.In the third, Nikkia Cooper drew a two-out walk but the Raider hurler again es-caped further damage by striking out BreeLong-Meyer for the third out.The local squad had a chance to do fur-ther damage in the third but couldn’t comeup with the big hit.Brenda Feasby and Stabler posted con-secutive singles before Bergman reachedon a fielder’s choice that forced outFeasby. Following an illegal pitch to moverunners to second and third, Lakota pitch-er Morgan Gangwer got Wright to pop outto shortstop Alaina Bickford beforeBaumle grounded out to end the inning.“We’ve done that at times this year where we just haven’t come up with thatkey hit,” stated the Raider head coach.“That is something we have to do a better  job of.”Lakota put two runners on with one outin the fourth only to see Baumle sit downDestiney Long-Myer and Ray to keepLakota off the scoreboard.In the fifth, Cooper hit a two-out double before Bree Long-Meyer struck out to

And because he has demonstrated his smalltown beliefs through his leadership,community spirit and enthusiasm, thePaulding County Chamber of Commerce named George as its 2014grand marshal.“The bottom line is simple. Wemoved here and adopted the place andwe are happy to be here and to callPaulding home. It’s a huge honor to berecognized, but honestly, I do thethings I do to help better the commu-nity and not for recognition,” Carter said.Carter and his wife Debra have beenmarried for 31 years and they havethree adult children.

As of Monday morning,$91,199.82 had come in to thePaulding County Relay For Life as a result of teamwork and this weekend’s annualRelay overnight at the Paul -ding County Fairgrounds.That amount is still waitingfor additional funding to comefrom at least two major eventsthat had to be rescheduled be-cause of bad weather, pluspending gifts still coming tothe fund.As a result, the local relaycrossed the $1 million mark inmoney raised over the past 20years. As of Monday morning,Paulding County had raised$1,037,309.82 toward thelocal cancer cause.Of that amount, Crew 4 ACure earned sapphire level sta-tus by raising $15,050 andPaulding Exempted VillageSchools brought in $11,595 toacquire jade level status. In ad-dition, teams raised $4,990through online donations.Other donations above the$5,000 level includedMarathon Moms, $7,544,Woodbridge Campers for aCure, $8,778, Country Inn,$5,006 and Wayne TraceLocal Schools, $6,103.One girl, Aniyah Sajuan,who will be a second grader inPaulding Elementary, hastaken cancer to heart. Shewalked 40 laps, accounting for six miles, in honor of her grandfather, Dennis Boatright,who had passed away fromcancer.“I like to walk,” said Sajuan.“I know that there is a realneed. My babysitter, Mary,had cancer. It’s really nice of everyone to do this.”Committee member JilleneMcMichael, who also servedas announcer for the evening,said that she was moved be-cause of the number of newteams and individuals in-volved this year. One of thosewas the Neer Family, whokept a running record of thelaps accumulated by their fam-ily members.Linda Neer said her familywalked last year in theDelphos Relay in respect for her husband, Terry, who wasdiagnosed with cancer two anda half years ago.“When we walked atDelphos, someone said, ‘Whydon’t we do that in Paulding,’”said Neer. “This has been verygood for our family. Wewalked together; it has beengood to see the family cometogether for something likethis.”She noted that family mem- bers gathered for a steak din-ner at the VFW in Paulding prior to the event. In the end,the family team had raised$2,500 toward the final total.“The biggest thing is sup- port for my dad,” commentedPam Rosswurm, daughter of Terry and Linda Neer. “It brought us together as a fami-ly. It is nice to see how thewhole community comes to-gether for this.”As always, one of the mostmoving times of the entireevent was the luminary serv-ice. As musicians sang “YouLift Me Up,” hundredsstrolled the track in the light of candles remembering andhonoring loved ones who havehad to deal with the dreadeddisease.“People are gathered heretonight to remember, celebrateand support one another,” saidPastor Karen Stentin. “Eachlife has been touched in someway by cancer. But we canonly hope that God will giveus a cure for this. We musthold on to hope always thatthere will be a cure someday.”“It was another fantasticweekend and ‘thank you’doesn’t even begin to cover it,” said McMichael. “Thank you to my amazing friends andfamily who show up everyyear to support Relay For Life,and to support me. With all of the texts, donations, time, out-side help, staying up all nightand unexpected visitors, I’mcompletely blessed by you all.“Thank you to the Relaycommittee for all of the hardwork and dedication. You giveso much of yourselves,” con-tinued McMichael. “I’m in-spired and impressed by eachof you. Thank you to theteams, the volunteers and thecommunity for doing whatyou do; over a million dollarsin 20 years, we have a lot to be proud of.

By JOE SHOUSEProgress Staff Writer
PAYNE – Payne’s EMS co-ordinator, Joe Garmyn, an-swered to the Payne VillageCouncil in executive session onTuesday night, May 26 after Mayor Terry Smith recom-mended he be released fromhis leadership position and de-moted to that of an EMT.For several months, accord-ing to Mayor Terry Smith,Garmyn has not performed sat-isfactorily in submitting neces-sary paper work for billing.Garmyn, who has been theEMS coordinator since Janu-ary, is at least three months be-hind on billing, Smith said.It was also pointed out thatGarmyn received a new billingcomputer program at his re-quest to make his job easier.“We were informed byGarmyn that the way we weredoing our EMS billing was in-correct and that he is to do the billing due to the HIPPA regu-lations,” said Smith.He went on to say, “It’s beenin Garmyn’s hands and so far only 12 run sheets have been processed this year.”Following the executive ses-sion meeting, Garmyn ex- pressed to council that he is behind because he needs helpto process the run sheets inorder to pass them on to MBI,the village’s third party billingagent. He told council that dueto the HIPPA laws, only certain people can have access to cer-tain in formation.Council passed a motion tokeep Garmyn as EMS coordi-nator; however, additionalchanges will take place withinthe department.A second motion passed pro-moting Amber Scheurman toEMS captain. Scheurman willassist Garmyn with completing paperwork in a timely manner.Once completed, the reportswill be sent Christa Gonzales,who will process them on toMBI for payment.“This is the way we used todo it and when Garmyn cameon board he told us we weredoing it all wrong. Now we are back to the old way, whichseems to work best,” saidMayor Smith.In the near future, councilwill be meeting with Garmynto work through a new job de-scription that will allow boththe EMS coordinator and thevillage to have better commu-nication and to work throughany future issues in a timelymanner.“Joe (Garmyn) was having problems with the paperwork and hopefully he has theneeded support and help to getthe job done. He is an excellentEMT and his performance asan EMT out in the field has al-ways been professional,” con-cluded Smith.Geoff Hyman from AntwerpExchange Bank and Brian Mar-tin, owner of PuckerbrushPizzeria, were present to offer their approval of the alley lo-cated between their two busi-ness. Once the new bank opens,the alley will be one-way southonly.
