OAKWOOD – The Oakwood DevelopmentCompany (ODC) is collaborating with busi-nesses as well as individuals to promote theeastern portion of Paulding County. Accordingto executive director Damien Morales, theODC is actively promotingthe many resources availablein the region in hopes to build camaraderie, strengthand growth.One natural resourceavailable are the many wa-terways that flow through thecounty. When Morales madehis first trip to Oakwood hesaw the potential of the riversand what could be done to bring people, dollarsand a sense of pride to the area.“What better opportunity to promote whatwe have than to discover the river up close and personal,” said Morales.In order to do so, the ODC is the drivingforce behind the first Auglaize River Regatta, to be held Saturday, June 21 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.“We want to focus on the east side of thecounty, near Oakwood. We have wonderful people to work with, a great community park inOakwood and everything downtown is in close proximity,” Morales said.He admits they are starting at the groundfloor with their first event, but already he seessuccess developing before the first canoe hitsthe water.“When you do somethinglike this, it’s all about the people and businesses. As aneconomic developmentgroup we want to build rela-tionships and in the processkeep them in front of us.Right now, just seeing peoplecome together, working hardand pooling their resourcesfor a common cause is exciting.”The ODC is drawing from many in the areato help facilitate the regatta. The paddle race,using one- or two-person canoes or kayaks will be 3.5 miles and will launch from AuglaizeCanoe and Kayak located at 24687 Road 207,outside of Oakwood near the Paulding-Putnam

PAULDING – A majorityof county farmers have fin-ished planting and replantingcrops and are finishing muchof their side dressing work,said Paulding County OhioState University Extensionagent Sarah Noggle earlier this week.“Much of the corn is in thatV-3 and V-4 stage right now,”said Noggle on Monday. “Atleast 70 percent of the sidedressing is done.” Noggle said that some of the corn has been knockedover by “flopping corn syn-drome,” a condition thatsometimes occurs when themesocotyl isn’t fully devel-oped and strong winds blowthrough the field.“Sometimes the crownroots aren’t fully developed incorn plants. This occurs be-tween the V-3 and V-8 stages,”said Noggle. “It is also re-ferred to as ‘rootless corn.’With the rain we had this pastweekend, the corn should con-tinue developing and comeout of that.”Rainfall in the county over the weekend was heavier inthe southern part, where one toone-and-a-half inches of rainWheat is also looking good. Noggle said she anticipatesharvest around the traditionalJuly 4 range, but possibly afew days past that this year.“We could be a little behind, but not much,” said Noggle.“Some of the wheat gotknocked down in windy con-ditions last week but it should be coming back up.”Weather specialist Rick McCoy said that future fore-casts indicate a gradual warm-ing trend in the summer cli-mate, but still more thanample moisture for the rest of June.“I know that they are sayingwe are going to have a cooler than normal summer, but I stillhave a hunch that we aregoing to have a hot and dryspell at some point,” saidMcCoy. “However I don’tforesee anything extraordi-nary occurring.”McCoy is watching the po-tential development of an El Nino in the Pacific later thissummer.“If that development doesoccur, it could affect our win-ter in that it would tend to bemore mild. If it doesn’t devel-op, then we could have a veryharsh winter again this year,”said McCoy.

occurred. Most areas north of that, from Payne to Oakwoodnorthward, received close toan half inch of moisture.Seeds that are exposed tocool, wet soils become subjectto pathogens, which can infectseeds and hurt seedlinggrowth. One of the most com-mon pathogens for corn andsoybeans is Pythium. Nogglesaid that she discovered fivetypes of Pythium in localfields. However, the agentnoted that beans are starting tocome out of that.Otherwise, beans are up andappear to be doing well. Withthe recent moisture and risingtemperatures, they shouldcontinue to progress nicely.

The Payne VillageCouncil heard from one of its ownEMT/firefighters who came beforethe council with several concerns andwas wanting answers.A veteran EMS member of nineyears and a member of the fire de- partment for 13, Mike James wantedto know how it came about thatAmber Scheurman was promoted tocaptain. Also, he wanted the councilto know the leadership within the firedepartment is in need of vast im- provement.At the last council meeting May27, the members of council promotedAmber Scheurman to the position of captain. At the same meeting, EMScoordinator Joe Garmyn managed toremain in his same position, but wasgiven an additional six months’ pro- bation through Dec. 31. It was earlier recommended by Mayor Terry Smiththat Garmyn be demoted to that of anEMT, citing a lack of leadership andnot providing paperwork in a timelymanner.James asked the council duringMonday night’s meeting howScheurman was promoted and thatno one knew it until it was read in the paper. The mayor asked James if hehad read the current bylaws andJames said he had but didn’t knowthey had been changed.Smith went on to explain how the promotion came about and that it wasdone according to the constitutionand its revised bylaws. However, noone in attendance seemed to knowwhen the bylaw changes came aboutor who even made them.“There is no trust or communica-tion anymore within the EMS or thefire department. The fire chief (JamieMansfield) doesn’t speak to you. Thecommunication sucks. It’s unreal,”said James.He went on to say how there arethose on the department with muchmore experience and then to have toread in the paper that someone withthree years’ experience got promoted.James said, “It’s a slap in the face.” James informed the council that hewas quitting both the fire and theEMS department.“I don’t trust them. If we had to gointo a burning fire, I’m not sure anyof them would have your back. It’sworse than any of you can imagine.So, I’ve come forward because itdoesn’t matter anymore,” James said.James, who delivered his concernsand frustrations in an orderly manner,then heard from Mayor Smith andCouncilman Ray Speice. “Let memake a suggestion to you. Why don’tyou meet with the fire and EMS com-mittee and discuss with them your concerns. It’s obvious there are issueswithin both departments and it needs

ANTWERP – It’s not whatany athletic director wants todo but when the numbersdon’t lie then sometimes youhave to make a tough deci-sion. And that is exactly whatAntwerp’s athletic director (AD), Drew Altimus, had todo in announcing there wouldbe no varsity football atAntwerp High School in2015.Altimus, who serves theschool as AD and varsity foot-ball coach, saw the writing onthe wall for some time. Themale student enrollment hasbeen slipping in recent years’plus the pool of football play-ers is not what it has been inthe past.Altimus has gone throughthe roller coaster of emotionsin recent days. “It’s disap-pointing that it has come tothis. It’s like taking a stepbackwards in order to taketwo steps forward. I know thisis the right thing to do and Iam the last person who wantsto do it,” he said.Coach Altimus and theArchers will field a team for the upcoming 2014 season be-fore taking a one-year hiatusin 2015 at the varsity level.“We will have a junior var-sity team in 2015 and then we plan to be back in 2016 at thevarsity level,” said Altimus.Right now, it looks asthough the coach will have inthe low 20s on his roster thisupcoming season.The numbers are low andAltimus is concerned abouthaving a team that is predom-inantly freshmen and sopho-mores competing on Fridaynights against stronger com- petition.“The bottom line is thesafety of the kids. We can’texpect these young kids withlittle experience to go outweek after week and compete.What will happen is that theywill get discouraged and notwant to play the followingyear, if at all,” said Altimus.When canceling an entireseason, it effects not only theArchers, but also their oppo-nents and mainly the GreenMeadows Conference. Theleague teams will now bescrambling for a new oppo-nent to schedule for the 2015season.Although the GMC coachesand athletic directors have allagreed to support the Archersand their situation, it could not become officially approveduntil the GMC executivecouncil, made up of theschools principals, voted. Ameeting was held onWednesday, June 4 with thethe council voting 8-0 allow-ing Antwerp to run a junior varsity football team only in2015.The GMC has a clause in itsconstitution where if a schoolis unable to field a team, theymay be asked to leave the con-ference.“That option was men-tioned, but it was never seri-ously considered. Our mainconcerned is for the kids andtheir overall safety,” saidGMC commissioner TomDominique.Earlier in the week, Altimushad concerns about the possi- bility of being asked to leavethe GMC but was confidentthat a plan could be workedout.“We could have been askedto vacate the league and thatwould have been a night-mare,” said Altimus. “If pushcame to shove, we wouldhave played, but the confer-ence understands our dilem-ma. And because we gavethem 15 months’ notice, Ithink they were willing tomove forward and allow us2015 to regroup,” commentedthe Antwerp AD.Hopefully, with the football program making some diffi-cult changes, the Archers willgrow and develop into astrong program in the future.Altimus believes the future is bright, but it will take sometime.“We will be fine. In thelower grades there are 40 kids playing football. The talent iscoming and when we come back we will be ready to com- pete,” concluded Altimus. The 2014 Archer schedule:Aug. 28 Edon; Sept. 5 Hilltop;Sept. 12 at Paulding; Sept. 19at Ayersville; Sept. 26Holgate; Oct. 3 at Edgerton;Oct. 10 Hicksville; Oct. 17 atTinora; Oct. 24 Fairview; Oct.31 at Wayne Trace.

The Amish Cook
By: Lovina Eicher
Mackinac Island. We stayed ata motel in St. Ignace on Satur-day night. Sunday morning wetook the ferry over to the islandand spent the day there. It gaveus all some history lessons.One of our highlights was driv-ing over the Mackinac Bridgethat connects the Lower Penin-sula to the Upper Peninsula.We even saw patches of snowstill on the island. The ferryride was chilly as we wanted toset on top deck. It was quite adifferent experience: The won-ders of God’s creations. Wehave often heard of MackinacBridge and Island.But not until you see it canyou really grasp the wonders of it. When I asked the childrenwhat the highlight of their tripwas I get different answerssuch as the ferry, the bridge, the pool at the motel. I don’t think anyone mentioned the island astheir favorite part.Loretta was very wore outfrom all the walking. Finallywe talked to the man at the liv-ery stable and he let us renttheir buckboard wagon and Ned, a big workhorse. Thewagon had 3 seats and couldseat all of us. We took in a lotmore scenery after that androde around the island for twohours.When we arrived back to St.Ignace, the children wanted togo swimming again. The poolrelaxed them all, especiallyLoretta. They also had a hot tuband that relaxed her muscles.Loretta can swim and that is anexercise that she is able to do.Water relaxes her muscles.It is Tuesday evening. I’msitting out here on the front porch and it is very quiet, al-most too quiet. My sisters Ver-ena and Susan wanted our fiveschool-age children to comeoff the bus there and spend thenight. They will go back on the bus in the morning. Sister Emma’s three boys also went.They have eight children therefrom ages 6 to 14 so I’m suretheir evening is quite noisier than usual.Meanwhile, daughters Susanand Verena went for a walk while daughter Elizabeth is outhere on the porch also writing.My husband Joe is resting onhis recliner after a hard day’swork at the factory. Elizabethand Susan don’t have to go towork at the factory this week except for Friday. Verena and Iwere glad for their help here athome today.The floors were mopped andlaundry washed, dried andfolded. We had the last of thelaundry in right before the raincame this afternoon The rainshould give the garden a boost.I’m enjoying my beautifulhanging pots of flowers here onmy porch. They were allMother’s Day gifts. So far Ihave kept them looking nicewith the help of my daughters.I seem to be able to grow allkinds of vegetables but flowersare not my specialty. I loveflowers but I think I either over-water them or not enough.Our family had a very nicerelaxing Memorial Day week-end. We left at 4:30 a.m. onSaturday morning bound for We arrived back home safeand sound Monday around 3 p.m. It was a very nice familytrip that will have good mem-ories in years to come. Howoften do we take our goodhealth for granted. Having adaughter that needs extra timeto get around puts us back to aslower pace. It makes us appre-ciate our health and gives us asympathetic view of other peo- ple with handicaps. The islandwasn’t very handicapped ac-cessible but we are glad we allwere able to see it. Seeing is believing.I think there were a lot of  people on the island that never heard of or seen Amish before.We were stared at, asked ques-tions, laughed at and lots of  pictures were snapped. We allhave the same God so wearen’t quite so different after all. Curiosity tends to some-times bring out rudeness fromsome people but may God bless and forgive each one of them.This is the cake we made for Lovina’s birthday. We put it ina horse shoe shaped pan.

She retired in2012. She filled her life withthe living of it – reading, gar-dening, needlepointing, an-tiquing, and being with her family.
