THIS WEEKIN YOURCOMMUNITYCOMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT
February 15 - 21, 2012
I’m having trouble keepingup with the holidays this timeof year. As I write this, peoplearound me are wearing red.It’s a reminder that I need toget a Valentine’s card for myhusband on the way home. Healready gave me mine alongwith a gift, so I’m feeling alittle guilty.I often have trouble keep-ing up with the many holi-days that crop up this time of  year.It starts in January withMartin Luther King’s birthday.Of course we don’t exchangecards for this event, but I oftenforget about the offices thatare closed.Then before I know it, Val-entine’s Day is upon me andit’s time to bring out the redoutfits and lace hearts.I decided I better open mycalendar and check out thedate for the next holiday.It’s Monday, President’s Day.Government offices will beclosed.Don’t rest though. Next weekis filled with holidays.On Tuesday, you can cel-ebrate Mardi Gras by enjoyinggood food and parties.This will be followed by thebeginning of the Lent seasonwith Ash Wednesday, a timemany of us go to church tobegin our observance of theseasonI’m okay though. Again, Idon’t need to buy a card.Then, it’s time to go shop- ping and find a card. I knowsomeone who was born onFeb. 29. Since this is a LeapYear and there is actually aFeb. 29 marked on the calen-dar, I will send a card.So everyone, flip your calen-dar to March. There are alsoimportant dates to rememberin this month.Mark your calendars forMarch 11. It’s not a holiday,but the day were we losean hour’s sleep because weturned our clocks forwardto begin Daylight SavingsTime.By Saturday, you shouldhave recovered from thatlost hour of sleep and beready to party. It’s St. Pat-rick’s Day, time to weargreen and enjoy drinkingsome green or Irish-appro- priate beverages.So are you beginning tounderstand what I am talk-ing about when I mention thenumerous events in the firstfew months of the year? Many people think the time betweenChristmas and Easter is a quiettime to rest up from Christmasand prepare for the Easterholiday.I see it as a time when I getconfused and lose track of the colors to wear, cards tobuy, and correct beverages todrink.

MILLER CITY — At a time whenmany schools are seeing a declinein enrollment or eliminating the program entirely, Miller City-NewCleveland High School still hasa highly successful vocationalagriculture and Future Farmersof America program. This year’s program has 80 students in gradesnine through 12 enrolled in the program.“This is the 50th anniversary of our agriculture program and FFA,”said guidance counselor StevePeck. “The program has continuedto grow through the years.”Ron Horstman, vocational agri-culture instructor at MC-NC, saidhe has been fortunate because theadministration at the school is verysupportive of the program.“They have worked with sched-uling to allow students to enrollin the program without conflictingwith required classes,” Horstmansaid. He also said all students ingrade 8 take one quarter that isan introduction to agriculture thatincludes the students completing ashop project.Currently, MC-NC offers Agricul-ture Science I and II and Agricul-ture Tech Prep I and II in the highschool.“Of course some things havechanged in the classes,” Horstmansaid. “I used to show the studentshow to repair plows and set themup,” he said. “Now hardly anyonedoes much plowing.” He alsospoke of current farm equipmentthat includes GPS systems for thefarmer to use. Although only 10 percent of  Americans are involved in tradi-tional farming, there are approxi-mately 22 million people who workin agriculture-related fields.“You name me a career and youcan find a specialization in agricul-ture in that field,” said Horstmangiving the computers-related fieldsand engineers as examples.Horstman said skills the studentslearn in FFA are needed through astudent’s lifetime.“They learn about parliamentary procedure, speaking and judging,”Horstman said. Every year he takesthe students to the Ohio state FFAconvention in Columbus.“Things have changed in FFAalso,” Horstman said. “When the program started there were nogirls. Now we have had girls whowon state degrees and have servedas the president of the FFA.”Horstman said it was instructor Jack DeVitt who influenced him tobecome an agriculture instructor.“I really enjoy working with thestudents,” Horstman admitted. Heallows the children to use theircreative skills as they paint gumballmachines they make in the eighthgrade workshop.In addition he is proud of the projects the high school studentstake to the fair. “I think MillerCity-New Cleveland has the mostshop projects on display at thefair,” he said. The FFA studentsalso take livestock projects tothe fair.FFA students set up a pettingzoo for the elementary students toenjoy each spring.On May 9 the school will cel-ebrate the 50th anniversary of their vocational-agriculture and FFA program during their annual springbanquet. Former officers of theFFA have been invited to be specialguests at the event.

It was all part of The Mead-ows “Live a Dream” program.Marie smiled at her husband asthey looked back on that specialday. She admitted it had been atotal surprise for her. Staff mem-bers recalled the happy tearsof both Ron and Marie as theyentered the dining room at TheMeadows. The staff membersstayed only long enough to con-gratulate the couple then left themalone to enjoy their meal. Thesupper consisted of grilled tilapiaand house salad from the Red PigInn, where the couple often dinedwhen they were living in theirhome.“I think my family introducedme to her,” Ron said recalling theirearly courting days. He said theywould often go to the movies. After the couple was marriedthey lived in Ottawa. Ron wasemployed at Sylvania.

Now she enjoys her time intherapy, revealing that the thera- pists treat her good and aren’t “toohard” on her.“The food here is good,” Ronsaid, “But not quite as good asMarie’s cooking always was.”Marie pointed proudly to a col-lage of pictures on the wall. Givento the couple by their children, thecollage includes family pictures,even Marie’s parents.“I think we enjoy the time weget to spend with the kids andgrandkids the most,” Ron said.The couple has 9 grandchildren.“Ron was really good aboutremembering details about theirwedding,” Geise said. “He evenremembered they had poinsettiasas their flowers.” As a final gift of the “Live theDream” Geise had pictures fromthe 50th anniversary celebration printed and placed in a collageframe.
