Paulding-Putnam ElectricCooperative held a ground- breaking for its new officeand warehouse facility onThursday, Nov. 4.The facility will be relocat-ing to 401 McDonald Pike,Paulding, formerly WausauHomes.This month also marks the75th anniversary of the coop-erative’s organization in1935.The ceremony was attend-ed by many PPEC members,trustees and employees, plusformer general managersHerb Monroe and FloydFurrow. Guests includedcounty Commissioner TonyBurkley and Paulding Mayor Greg White.As a not-for-profit electriccooperative, Paulding-Putnam Electric Cooperativeexists to serve its members,something that the coopera-tive has done for over 70years. That’s why building for the future and having a long-term focus is so important.Building for the future en-hances reliability and im- proves service for members.Community growth has creat-ed increased traffic conges-tion on the north side of Paulding. Growth has alsocaused a need for more em- ployees, prompting the coop-erative to evaluate whether itscurrent location was meetingthe needs of the membership.After considering many al-ternatives over the past eightyears, Paulding-Putnam de-termined it would be best torelocate its general office,warehouse and pole yard from910 N. Williams St. on thenorth side of Paulding to thesouth side. This location will provide improved access,more parking spaces, addi-tional storage areas, officespace, as well as areas for fu-various times all four days.Be sure to make your selec-tion for the People’s ChoiceAward, which is voted on withmoney.

Paulding-Putnam breaks ground at new site
Commissioners don’t anticipate manychanges in county finances until 2013
with our budget. There may be a fewslight raises available to some depart-ments. We don’t anticipate that therewill be a lot of changes.”The commissioners said that con-servative handling of funds recentlymight have placed them in a positionwhere it could be possible to increasesome appropriations slightly, espe-cially with the wind energy factor inthe horizon.Burkley said that commissionersare encouraged because it appears thatthe worst of the economic problemshave bottomed out.“We think that things have bottomedout, as far as decrease in revenue,” saidBurkley. “Our revenue is going toshow a slow upturn until we see exact-ly what the state is going to do.”

The Paulding County commission-ers could have certainly used the rev-enue for the proposed levy that votersdecided against in last week’s elec-tion. However, says Commissioner Tony Burkley, things are better off than they have been in sometime.That, coupled with the fact that thefirst revenue from the wind farms willstart to hit county coffers in 2013, hascommissioners somewhat optimisticabout the recovery of county finances.“We still don’t know what is goingto come from the state. They don’t dotheir budget until July; but PauldingCounty is in pretty good position fi-nancially for the future,” said Burkley.“We’re getting to that point, with thewind energy revenue coming in. Weanticipate that 2013 is the first year that we will benefit from wind energy.“It’s too early for us to anticipatewhat effect state cuts might have onus,” noted Commissioner TonyZartman. “If the state would have been proactive like we were, theywouldn’t have the problems they arehaving now. Instead, they were reac-tive and now they are paying for it. ”Burkley said that county financesare looking slightly better becauseconservative handling of funds over the past couple of years.“By not spending every penny wehad, it put us in a position to weather the economic crisis that the state is inright now. Because we addressedthings early, it is allowing us to sur-vive things now.“Now we are seeing the benefitfrom the way we handled things,”continued Burkley. “The next year or so will still be very critical, but we canweather that out now. If we wouldhave spent everything that we had,things would have been much morecritical.”On Nov. 2, voters overwhelminglyrejected a 2-mill additional levy thatwould have raised $613,268 over afive-year period. The first $80,000 of that would have gone to the Soil andWater agency.“Since the state doesn’t release its budget until July, we don’t reallyknow what to expect from them,” saidZartman. “We are just beginning dis-cussion on what we are going to do

!roofing project because it wasleaking. One thing led to an-other. The bell project was just there; it seemed Godwanted it to be done.”Longtime members are ec-static that their bell is going toring once again.Rick King, whose ancestor Henry King was one of thefounders of the church, saidthat he remembers when fam-ilies used to take turns ringingthe bell. He also recalled chil-dren hanging on the rope andswinging on the rope.When asked whether or nothe was one of those children,King smiled and said, “Oh, I just heard about it.”Rick Helms, who alongwith his wife Dorothy, have been members of the churchfor nearly 25 years, said it isassumed that this is the origi-nal bell in the church. Henoted that the year 1889 ismarked on the bell.Church records indicatethat the building was con-structed during that time peri-od, under the ministry of J.W.Barber, who served thechurch from 1887 to 1893.“The lot on which thechurch now stands at the cor-ner of Oak and Hymanstreets, was purchased fromGeneral Gibson,” notes achurch history. “The churchwas rectangular in form, with belfry and steeple, and washeated with two wood stoves,one on each side of theroom.”In 1925, the history statesthat the church was remod-eled with the addition of aSunday School room, newstained glass windows, andrelocation of the vestibule and belfry in the northeast corner of the church. At that time,farmers came in with teams of horses and dug out a church basement. It was noted that aneighbor supplied the work-ers with peanut butter sand-wiches on a daily basis.Maxine Cluts, who has been a member and associateof the church for nearly ninedecades, said that she and her husband, Roy, who is now de-ceased, used to come tochurch early when it was their turn to ring the bell.“Roy would be so happy if he knew about this. He wouldalso be thrilled about all of therecent growth in the churchmembership,” Cluts said.“I’m just so happy. I can’t be-lieve it; I can’t believe that bell is going to ring again.”Consistory member RonBurk has been appointed toring the bell each Sunday, 10times just prior to worship at10 a.m.“This church is alive andwell. We are thankful for lotsof new members and bap-tisms,” said Wilson. “We feelthat this bell represents a new beginning for our church.With God’s help, we’re look-ing moving on from here.”

PAYNE – Lots of thingshave changed in Payne in the past 121 years, but an old cus-tom is about to be re-estab-lished. The church bell at St.Jacob’s Church has been re-conditioned, the steeple has been re-enforced and the bellwill be mounted to ring onceagain on Sunday morning prior to worship. Currently, itwill be the only “live” church bell ringing on a weekly basisin the village.Consistory president JimWilson said that the bell wasrestored through a unique process by Jim Bourelle of Van Wert. It was blasted withindustrial corn starch, pol-ished, and then polished againthrough a special formula de-signed so that it will never tar-nish again.“He (Bourelle) told me thatit had some kind of finishcoated on it that may havecome from some industry thatwas in town many years ago,”said Wilson. “He restored itand put pads inside the bellthat cushioned the clapper for when it hits the bell.”Wilson admitted that therewere many new things helearned during the process of  bell restoration. One was thatevery bell is tuned to a certainnote on the musical scale. TheSt. Jacob’s bell, he said, istuned to B# (or C). He saidthat Bourelle made sure thatthe bell was properly tuned;he also replaced the originalwheel.“Many years ago, the bellwas deemed unsafe to ring;we decided to rebuild thetower, recondition the belland at the same time put newsiding on the entire church,”said Wilson.Wilson said he can’t ex- plain where the idea camefrom to bring the bell back.He noted that one day the idea just popped in his mind.“I suppose the Lord put theidea there,” said Wilson.“There was no plannedthought process; suddenly,there was a thought that toldme that this was somethingthat we ought to do. I said tomyself, ‘Why can’t we ringthat bell again?’ We started a

ture growth and would avoidthe traffic congestion it presently faces.PPEC purchased the siteabout a year ago.The cooperative was ableto take advantage of the de- pressed real estate market and purchased a vacant buildingat a very low price. The cur-rent facility was built in the1950s and has been renovatedtwice with no space left for expansion. The property sitson a valuable corner inPaulding, which will be soldto offset some of the buildingexpense.The existing building has22,000 square feet. The newfacility will more than triplethe available area at 71,500square feet.The building should becompleted and ready for occu- pancy by late July or August.Facility committee chair-man Karl Koenig commented,“The age of the building, heat-ing and cooling capabilities,technology requirements, andsafety concerns were key fac-tors in determining whether or not to pursue this project.”George Carter, CEO/gener-al manager of PPEC, realizesthat relocating the office im- pacts many people that is whythey did extensive studies andwere careful to find a suitablelocation.Carter emphasizes, “This building project, like any cap-ital improvement, will onlyhave a minor impact on futuremember rates. We are a finan-cially stable organization andwe have strategically plannedfor this growth.”“The cooperative exists toserve our members,” said Dr.John Saxton, president of the board of trustees, “and unlikerecent trends of companies pulling out of communities,Paulding Putnam Electric be-lieves it’s important to main-tain a local presence inPaulding County.

I thought I would share adiary of a recent day with youreaders.6:30 a.m. It is Saturday,Oct. 30. Today is my oldest brother, Amos’s, 49th birth-day. I can always remember his age because he is 10 yearsolder than I am. Brother-in-law Jacob will be 38 on Nov.1. It is time to start another day. It feels good to have heatin the house on this chillymorning. My husband Joestarted our coal stove in the basement on Thursday and itmakes the house more com-fortable.7:45 a.m. We have break-fast that consists of fried eggsand potatoes, bacon, cheese,toast, butter, strawberry jam,milk, and cider. Mornings likethis are always special whenwe can all eat a relaxing mealtogether and do not have tothink of anyone needing toleave.8:45 a.m. Daughter Eliza- beth, 16, and I start gatheringlaundry to wash. The other girls wash dishes and start theweekly cleaning. Joe and the boys are cleaning out the barnand the horse stalls. Joe needsto get our one-horse manurespreader fixed so he canspread the manure in the gar-dens and fields.12:30 p.m. We finally havethe laundry all done. Eliza- beth hung it all outside whileI washed it. It is windy andsome of the clothes don’twant to stay on the line. It iscold on the hands to hang up.I am sure one of these days itwill be cold enough that wewill have to start drying theclothes in the basement. In themeantime, we will appreciateall the nice days we have left.Uncle Joe and Aunt Bettydrove in just as we were fin-ishing with the laundry. Theyvisited us awhile and then leftto go visit with sister Emmaand Jacob and sisters Verenaand Susan. I told them tocome back tonight for supper.1:30 p.m. I fix a late lunchof homemade vegetable soupand barbecued beef sand-wiches.2:15 p.m. Elizabeth and Istart getting in the laundry tofold and put away. The other girls finish the weekly clean-ing. Joe and the boys are fin-ishing up in the barn. Earlier,while Joe and Betty werehere, we had some anxiousmoments when the horses gotout through an open gate inthe barn. The three horses andour pony found their way outand started down the road toour hay field. They were busyeating in the hayfield and did-n’t want to go into the fencedin pasture. I guess theythought the grass lookedgreener on the other side of the fence.4:30 p.m. Joe and Betty are back. They got to visit withJacob and Emma, but Verenaand Susan were not home. Imixed together a meatloaf andmade scalloped potatoes. Thegirls start helping the younger ones get cleaned up.5:15 p.m. The meatloaf andthe scalloped potatoes are inthe oven. The rest of us getcleaned up.6:30 p.m. Elizabeth’s friendTim joins us for supper, too.We have meatloaf, scalloped potatoes, corn, cheese and peaches. I didn’t get time to getanything baked because wewere just too busy. I don’t liketo do laundry on a Saturday, but Joe, Elizabeth and I de-cided to go have lunch with thechildren at school yesterday sowe couldn’t do it then. We picked up sister Emma, daugh-ter Elizabeth and son Stevenalong the way. Joe didn’t haveany work and will be off all of next week, too.8 p.m. Joe and Betty left andwe are all ready to call it a day.Elizabeth and Tim leave to jointhe other youth at the localcommunity center.
