A kidney donor has beenapproved for Maddox DeanFranz, son of Brian and Sarah(Deatrick) Franz. Sarah for-merly was the principal atWayne Trace PayneElementary and currentlyserves as guidance counselor at Wayne Trace Jr./Sr. High.The transplant will happen onAug. 13 in Indianapolis. The family’s story is one of heartbreak, bravery, love andsupport. Shortly after his birthon Nov. 28, 2012, babyMaddox was transferred tothe Dupont NICU because of some breathing trouble. Hewas diagnosed with a pneu-mothorax (a burst air sac inthe lung), which would healitself in a few days. Maddoxwas kept sedated in theDupont NICU to help heal his pneumothorax. Because hewas in the NICU for the pneu-mothorax, the doctors didmore in-depth blood tests.They found his creatinine andBUN numbers from his bloodwork kept increasing over time.He was transferred to RileyChildren’s Hospital inIndianapolis on Fridayevening, Nov. 30, when hewas two days old. A kidneyultrasound showed he hadone underdeveloped kidneyand the other one had manycysts on it. The outcome ap- peared to be grim. Maddoxwould undergo three surger-ies in just a few weeks. Thefirst surgery on Dec. 2 was toinsert a central venous line asnurses were unable to get anIV into his tiny veins.On Dec. 4 another surgerywas done to install his dialy-sis catheter line in his ab-domen. During that surgery,doctors learned there was a

This Friday, Aug. 8, PauldingCounty will hit the small screen in a big way. A recently solved cold mur-der case from 1981 will be featured onthe TNT program “Cold Justice,” air-ing at 9 p.m.Jason Landers, Paulding Countysheriff, credits the arrest of Steven G. Noffsinger, 58, of Defiance to the hardwork of two of his deputies and thecold case investigators from the pro-gram with closing this case.“Deputy Rob Garcia and Lt. BrionHanenkratt have put a lot of manhours into this cold case over the pastseveral months, along with cold caseinvestigators that were brought in toassist our office,” said the sheriff. “Icommend them for their dedication tosee this through. I am pleased to knowthe healing process can start for Alma’s family.”The accused, who is an ex-husbandof the victim, Alma Noffsinger, wasarrested Aug. 1 in Defiance followinga special grand jury session July 31 inPaulding. He ischarged with ag-gravated murder with specification,an unclassifiedfelony.Members of theDefiance PoliceDepartment wereassisted byPaulding CountySheriff’s deputiesat Noffsinger’shome for the ar-rest. He offeredthem no resistance. Noffsinger is currently being held inPutnam County Jail awaiting an Aug.7 arraignment in Paulding CountyCommon Pleas Court.Alma Noffsinger was found beatento death in her Oakwood home onDec. 17, 1981.“Cold Justice” Season Two, Episode17 is titled “Second Thoughts” anddiscusses her case and its recent inves-tigation.Her case received the attention of the “Cold Justice” producers, Wolf Productions, last year after they per-sistently approached Sheriff Landersabout assisting with cold cases fromPaulding County. He said they offeredto bring resources in to assist with in-vestigations.
 THREE CASES PROPOSED
Sheriff Landers gave them synopsesof three unsolvedhomicides: the Nancy Eaglesoncase from 1960,the Alma Noffsinger casefrom 1981 and thedeath of TheresaSmith-Shay from2007.Eagleson, 14,was abducted Nov.13, 1960 whilewalking homefrom a movie with
Alma Delgado Noffsinger, a 29-year-old single mother, was founddead in her Oakwood home just be-fore Christmas 1981. (Photo fromstate attorney general’s website) Steven G. Noffsinger of Defiancewas arrested and charged last weekfor the 1981 beating death of his ex-wife, Alma, in Oakwood. His appre-hension came after a TV show, “ColdJustice,” help investigate this nearly33-year-old cold case.

urethral membrane blockingthe flow of urine out of hisbladder. Urine had backed upfrom his bladder, through theureters, and into the kidneys.This kidney reflux had poi-soned his kidneys in thewomb and limited their abili-ty to grow normally.Following six days for hiscatheter site to heal, littleMaddox started dialysis onDec. 10. He had nightly dial-ysis for a week and then athird surgery was done. Brianand Sarah had to learn how toadminister it to their son athome. Maddox has been ondialysis at home ever since. The couple has coped withtheir son’s illness with astrong support system fromtheir family, friends and faithwhich has helped keep themstrong. The rest of their jour-ney is continuing. The couplesaid, “He weighs 28 lbs. now.He needed to be over 26 lbs.to have the transplant sur-gery.”“His favorite toys currentlyare his Hot Wheels cars. Healso likes to play with bubblesoutside and go for wagonrides. He has a large vocabu-lary. He says ‘Good morning’and ‘Night night’ and talks allday long between. He likes tosay ‘Hi’ to strangers in thegrocery store just to see if hecan get their attention,” con-tinued Brian. Sarah noted, “An inherent part of kidney failure is lossof appetite, so Maddox does-n’t have a favorite food. Hemostly drinks a special for-mula mix designed specifical-ly for him.”Maddox spent a night in thehospital back in October be-cause of dehydration associat-ed with flu-like symptoms.The Franzes also made an un- planned trip to the hospital inJune to repair a tear in hisdialysis catheter.Kidney transplant surgeryis scheduled for Aug. 13 inIndianapolis. The Franzeswere lucky to find a livingdonor who would donate oneof their kidneys to Maddox.After learning Maddox had O blood type, most familymembers who had originallyvolunteered to be tested asdonors were ineligible due totheir blood type being incom- patible with Maddox’s.Jacob Dillion stepped up tovolunteer to be tested.Thirteen years ago, Brianmoved into the house wherethe Franz family now live.The Dillions lived next door.Jake was 10 years old at thattime. Over the future yearsthey would become friends aswell. The Dillions movedthree years ago, but remainedfriends. “Jake is now a brave 23years old and we are verythankful for his willingness tohelp Maddox better his lifethrough the gift of one of hiskidneys,” said Brian andSarah.Maddox will be in surgeryfor four to six hours on Aug.13. Eight hours will likely pass before the couple will beable to see him. The surgeonexpects the transplanted kid-ney to begin working and pro-ducing urine right away. Thisis a benefit of a living donor kidney.Maddox will have to takerejection medicine for the restof his life to prevent his bodyfrom attacking the new, trans- planted kidney. It is expectedMaddox will spend two tothree weeks in the hospital for recovery.Jake will spend two to threedays in the hospital and a cou- ple weeks recovering athome.“Maddox continues to meetall development milestonesand amazes his doctors withLATTY – Two men are fac-ing felony charges after deputies allegedly discovered ameth lab in Latty on Friday.According to Sheriff JasonLanders, on Friday, Aug. 1,deputies went to 225 SecondSt. in Latty looking for a want-ed person. While speakingwith a subject, later identifiedas Sammie L. Jones, age 30,another male subject was seenwalking from a shed with whatwas identified as a “one-pot”meth lab.The second subject, later identified as Jason C. Kremer,age 31, fled from the scene anda foot-chase ensued. Kremer was apprehended a short dis-tance from the residence alongwith the suspected lab.The investigation revealedKremer’s children were pres-ent in the home at the time themeth lab was discovered,therefore enhancing the crimi-nal charges.Jones and Kremer weretaken into custody and eachheld on charges of illegal man-ufacturing of drugs, a first de-gree felony, and illegal assem- bly or possession of chemicalsfor the manufacturing of drugs,a second degree felony.Kremer also faces one count of endangering children, a thirddegree felony.Kremer is scheduled for a preliminary hearing atPaulding County Court onThursday, Aug. 7. Jones wasscheduled for arraignmentMonday, but no further infor-mation was available.The Paulding FireDepartment and the OhioAttorney General’s Office as-sisted at the scene.If anyone has informationregarding drug activity or anyother crime, please contact thesheriff’s office at 419-399-3791. Information can be leftvia Facebook by searchingFacebook/Paulding CountySheriffs Office.County Road 143.It was thought the markingswould better define the medi-an areas and provide a visualto motorists of where theycould safely wait before cross-ing or turning into the lanes of travel. The work was complet-ed last fall.“This was a measure thatwas viewed positively by the public and we still believe it isa good enhancement to the in-tersections,” said Slusher.“Unfortunately, additional ac-cidents have occurred sincethis was done,” he said.From 2010 to present, 22accidents have occurred alongU.S. 24 in Paulding County.Five of those accidents result-ed in six fatalities which oc-curred at County Road 143,County Road 87 and CountyRoad 115.Before the crew came toPaulding County this summer,they spent time in GuernseyCounty. They headed toIndiana after completing film-ing here.Landers expressed satisfac-tion with the experience, not-ing the production company isa very professional organiza-tion.“The people we workedwith are there to help bringclosure and justice. We devel-oped an expert relationship Iexpect to last for a long, longtime,” concluded Sheriff Landers. “It was really, truly a blessing to have these re-sources for us to use.”“Cold Justice” followsKelly Siegler and YolandaMcClary to “underfundedsmall-town” law enforcementagencies where they assistwith reassessing cold murder cases. The TNT reality crimeseries premiered lastSeptember and was just re-newed for a third season.It is produced for TNT byWolf Reality and MagicalElves, with Dick Wolf (writer- producer, “Law & Order,”“Law & Order: SpecialVictims Unit” and “Law &Order: Criminal Intent”), DanCutforth, Jane Lipsitz andTom Thayer serving as execu-tive producers.As of mid-July, the serieshad helped local agencies se-cure 15 arrests, four confes-sions, eight indictments, twoguilty pleas and a 22-year  prison sentence for murder.Siegler is a former county prosecutor from Texas with a68-0 conviction record at mur-der trials. She has also been bureau chief of the SpecialCrimes Bureau. McClary has26 years of experience withLas Vegas Metropolitan PoliceDepartment, 16 of which werein the crime lab. She is the in-spiration for Marg Hel gen  ber - ger’s character in “C.S.I.:Crime Scene Investigation.”Noffsinger was found inher home Dec. 17, 1981, deadfrom blunt force trauma caus-ing a basal skull fracture. The29-year-old mother of threehad been struck several timesin the head.Smith-Shay was foundJune 16, 2007, near the inter-section of Roads 87 and 180in Crane Township. She had been shot. Law enforcement believed the 38-year-oldRichmond, Ind. resident waskilled where she was found.Representatives from the production company request-ed more information on eachof the three submissions.Later, the focus was set on the Noffsinger case.Landers interjected thatabout this same time, a sister of Alma’s was visiting fromFlorida and asked if the newsheriff might reconsider thecase.A meeting was set with oneof the show’s producers, whoflew in from California tomeet with local law enforce-ment. The sheriff’s officewould retain complete controlof the investigation, whilehaving access to the “ColdJustice” prosecutor and expe-rienced crime scene investiga-tor.The production crew was inthe area from June 13-22,more than 30 people in all.During that time, the sheriff,Garcia and Hanenkratt spent atleast 10 hours a day, Mondaysthrough Saturdays, with the production crew interviewingover 30 people connected withthe cold case. These were con-ducted in the sheriff’s office, at people’s homes, here in Ohioand in other states.“As we worked the investi-gation, they filmed from the back side,” said the sheriff.“The film crew followed usand we were miked up for theshow.”Sheriff Landers said the se-lection process by the produc-ers first started in those statesthat allow this type of work;some have laws that prevent it. Next, all 88 Ohio county sher-iffs were contacted to deter-mine interest or need.Solvability of the proposedunsolved cases was consid-ered as well.“All but two people con-nected with this case are stillalive. That was a real benefit,”said Sheriff Landers.

 Note: This week, Gloria Yoder of Flat Rock, Ill., takes over authorship of “The  Amish Cook” syndicated column.
 Hi. I’m Gloria Yoder, age 24. I’m an ordinary Amish housewife and mother and, yes, I love it. My husband Daniel and I have been  blessed with over four years of marriage. We were thrilled when God added a baby girl to our hearts and lives 2-1/2 years ago. We named her Julia Rose. She is our little sunshine. We also anticipate the arrival of another bundle in November. Julia is all excited about being a big sister. We live in a quiet country area and enjoy spending time outdoors, especially going on  picnics and camping trips. A week ago, we had the opportunity to go with my family to the Embarras River for a camp-out. We had a wonderful time together. My favorite part of camping
is sitting around the re after
dark singing or swapping
stories. A campre is never
complete without having some good s’mores. I love roasting marshmallows to a golden brown, then placing it on a graham cracker square, spread with an ample amount of peanut butter, and topping it with a square of milk chocolate. Presto, you’re done! That’s it, all except lazily sitting back and
munching it down as the re
crackles cozily. The early morning walks I’ve been taking are another favorite activity. I never cease to marvel over the melodious songs of the birds and the invigorating morning air. It also gives me the chance to spend some quiet moments with God in prayer. Daniel and my brother Javin are both woodworkers. They build log furniture. Their shop is located at my  parents’ home, which is less than a quarter mile from our house. Julia loves spending time with her daddy and is constantly begging to trail after him wherever he goes. Sometimes she goes with him to the shop and, of course, ends up going to Grandma’s house. Right now Daniel is mowing the yard with our walk-behind mower. Julia is perched on top of his shoulders, something she relishes and makes her feel like she’s on top of the world. Summer is here in full swing. Along with it comes gardening, canning and freezing. Even though it is the busiest and hottest season of the year, I have found it to have many blessings. There’s nothing quite like eating that
rst corn on the cob, spotting a red tomato for the rst time
or picking that tiny cucumber that hasn’t quite matured yet. Gathering fresh veggies from the garden is a highlight. To me, the vegetables taste better than candy. This year I want to try something I haven’t done  before. We are planning to have a fall garden. It’ll give us the opportunity to have fresh garden goodies for a more extended period of time. Another advantage is I won’t have to do as much canning during the warmest part of harvest season. My parents have a family cow, which we all benefit from. That way I can use all the milk I need and want. We have found it to be useful in so many ways. Julia loves drinking raw milk, while Daniel’s favorite is the chocolate coffee smoothies  – watch for the recipe in an upcoming column. I also make pudding, yogurt, cheese, pies, etc., using the fresh milk. I use the cream for making butter and the buttermilk for cookies,  biscuits or pancakes.
 For my rst recipe, I thought
I would share something that is a favorite around here:  peanut butter crumb pie. My husband’s eyes light up when
he nds out I am preparing it,
 because he loves this pie and it was served at our wedding!
