The past year has brought many changesinto the life of Teresa Arend. In May 2009, theyoung wife and mother suffered a series of  brain stem hemorrhages with each hemor-rhage leaving her with more symptoms.Teresa Breckler Arend was born inHicksville and grew up on a small farm out-side of Defiance. On Aug. 14, 1999, she mar-ried Brian Arend of Paulding and she taughtspecial education classes until their first son,Ethan, was born. Ethan had some medical problems so Teresa became a stay-at-homemom. The Arends had another son, Nathan.She noted, “My initial hemorrhage only brought about blurred vision. My vision wors-ened with each hemorrhage and eventuallymy right eye turned in towards my nose due tothe pressure on the nerve that controls the out-side muscle.”In a year’s time, Teresa suffered seven brainhemorrhages. In May 2010, Teresa had her first brain surgery to attempt to remove whatwas determined to be a cavernous angioma inher brainstem. A cavernous angioma is a mal-formed blood vessel which had probably been present at birth.During her first surgery, they removed twoquarter-sized pieces of skull so they couldreach the brainstem. After seven hours of sur-gery, it was determined that the malformationcould not be removed without a great risk toher life. So they closed her back up.In June, an MRI determined that the cav-ernous angioma was continuing to hemor-rhage and was taking up 80 percent of her  brain stem. She said, “What had started out as being a nuisance of symptoms was becominglife-threatening, as everything goes throughthe brainstem.“Each time the malformation grew, it gaveme new symptoms and if it continued to growat that rate, I could stop breathing or my heartcould have just stopped.”Teresa underwent a second surgery in Julyto attempt to remove the malformation. Shewas told by her surgeon that following sur-gery, she may come out of the operation witha trach [tube], feeding tube and other issues.“But,” Teresa continued, “it was either thator risk dying from another hemorrhage athome.”She said, “It is amazing how God can con-quer all possible risks. I woke up from surgerywith no trach or feeding tube. I had no newsymptoms. In fact, some of my pre-op symp-toms had disappeared.

Council voted to ap- prove Ordinance No. 2010-10 to accept the dedication of Parkway Drive, which is situ-ated in block “A” to the vil-lage as a duly dedicatedstreet.The village needs to havevoters’ support for the EMSlevy for 0.5 mill and the po-lice levy for 1 mill toallow the community to pro-vide necessary services to theresidents. It is encouragedthat all vote yes.Again, confusion apparent-ly exists on which propertythe initiative petition, appear-ing on the Nov. 2 ballot, is re-quiring a zoning classifica-tion change from a B-1 to R-1. The initiative petition isnot for the lot between theDollar General store and AnnBachellor’s property, but for the Dollar General lots. Thevillage administration strong-ly encourages village resi-dents to vote no on the initia-tive petition requiring a zon-ing classification changefrom a B-1 (business) to R-1(residential).As a reminder, the grandopening of Dollar Generalwill be held at 8 a.m.Saturday, Oct. 30.Special thanks were of-fered to Maumee ValleyPlanning Organization for thework done on South MainStreet and to the PauldingCounty commissioners for working with the village ingiving property back to thevillage.Council passed a motion tocontract with Dan Gamble todo the leaf pick-up.Tiffany Beckman spoke atthe meeting about running for the Paulding Common PleasCourt judge.

The Amish Cook
By: Lovina Eicher
Our six scholars just leftfor school. Everything seemsso quiet around here whenthey leave.My husband Joe has fin-ished my shelves in the can-ning room down in the basement. The girls and Ihave the shelves all filledwith the full and empty jars.Joe built shelves on bothwalls so I have more than plenty of room. It is so muchnicer and more organized tohave a place to go with all the jars of home-canned food inone place.I always feel grateful whenI walk in there and see all thecanned food for the winter months ahead. It makes allthe hard work worthwhile.Like now when Joe’s work isslow, we know we have plenty to eat. God has givenus so many blessings in life.Sometimes we take every-thing for granted and we neg-lect to thank He who sends usall these blessings.We have finished canningour applesauce now. Wemade 21 quarts total. And wealso enjoyed just eating manyof the apples as snacks. I liketo use a variety of apples tomake sauce. I think it makesfor a better flavored sauce.This time we used NorthernSpy, Cortland and GoldenDelicious for our applesauce.I think we are now donewith canning until this winter when we do our meat, unlessJoe is lucky deer huntingnext month.Joe and the boys have beenhaving fun setting up their  pop-up tent for hunting sea-son which, as I said, beginsnext month. Our neighbor has been so kind to let Joeuse their woods for huntingdeer.Yesterday. Joe took me totheir hunting spot to show mewhere they set it up. It wasthe first time I have been back there. It is fixed up pretty neat and has two fold-ing chairs inside. He took anextra one in case the boyswant to go along huntingwith him sometime.Kevin sat in the little chair and looked so relaxed. Hesaid he wants to come alongand watch Dad shoot a deer.Benjamin, 11, and Joseph, 8,are also very excited and pre-tend they are deer hunting inthe hay field with Benjamin’s bow and arrow. It is just a lit-tle small bow that we gaveBenjamin for Christmas lastyear and not made to huntdeer. It is mostly used for tar-get practice.Meanwhile, our commu-nity was saddened to hear about the death of a 68-year-old Amish bishop from thisarea. He died suddenly whilein Wisconsin with plans to at-tend his grandchild’s wed-ding the next day. This wasthe first of his grandchildrento get married. Our sympathygoes to the lonely widow andfamily.We have so many leavescovering our yard. The chil-dren have been kept busyraking them up but morekeep falling. We will proba- bly have to go out oneevening and get them all picked up at once. Like thesaying goes, many handsmake light work. We have alot of trees, which I enjoy, butwhen the leaves start falling itmakes a lot of work.I hope to get to my sewingthis week. I started sewingKevin a pair of pants a fewweeks ago and never finishedit yet.The mornings have beenvery chilly with the tempera-tures dropping to the low 30sSaturday morning. Some peo- ple have their stoves going butwe are just letting our gaslights burn a little longer.
