THIS WEEKIN YOURCOMMUNITYCOMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT
March 21 - 27, 2012
I wish I had the kind of per-sonality where I could do justone thing at a time.I’m not that fortunate. I haveto be doing a couple things atone time. I cannot just sit andwatch television or just enjoyeating a meal. I have to bedoing something else.When I’m watching televi-sion I may be doing somethingon my laptop or filling outsome type of form.While I’m eating I findmyself reading a book or indesperation reading the menufrom top to bottom.I’m not sure where this traitcame from, but I think it hasgone on for ages.I’m sure it started in the pio-neer days when women wouldbe feeding a baby with onehand and making three apple pies and bread for supper withthe other.Then when radio came intobeing, I doubt if many people just sat by the radio and lis-tened. The men were probablywhittling something in woodand the women were sewingor crocheting a warm quilt orblanket for the winter.Now with modern conve-niences we find ourselvesoften doing three things atonce. I wonder how manystudents are doing theirhomework while watching thetelevision while tweeting mes-sages to a friend.It seems to get more compli-cated as we get more technol-ogy.Even on vacation I havea hard time just sitting andenjoying the scenery. It takesme a while to unwind enoughto get to that point and eventhen I’m checking my cell phone for text messages I mayhave missed.I am trying to stick to onlytwo multi-tasks at a timethough. If I get a phone callI put the television on muteto block the sound. Unfortu-nately though I catch myself trying to read the subtitleswhile I’m conversing. to keepup with the show.Then suddenly I get a mes-sage on my computer that afriend wants to talk online.Then I discover I’ve brokenmy golden rule and am doingthree things at once. All I can say to myself is“Stop and smell the roses”once in a while. I shouldn’tfeel like I should also bewatering and fertilizing themwhile taking a close up pictureof the rose, too.

OTTAWA — A pilot program isunderway at the Putnam CountyYMCA. Second grade studentsfrom Ottawa Elementary are tak-ing part in a YMCA Begin toSwim curriculum.The YMCA has a goal of expanding this program to allsecond graders in the county.“Drowning is one of the lead-ing causes of accidental deathfor children age 1-14 years old,”said Lori Featherolf, director atthe Y. “With this in mind andbecause of the large number of  pools and ponds in the county Istarted thinking about how wecould help our kids stay safe inand around water.”Featherolf said they have cho-sen to focus on teaching strokedevelopment and water safetyskills to second graders becauseresearch has shown that 8-9 yearolds tend to be more daring andmay not fully comprehend thedangers of deep water. Studentstaking part in this program learnto be safety conscious in andaround water. They learn poolrules, survival skills and boatingsafety.The students also learn theconsequences of their choices inrelation to water safety.They are taught paddling skills,treading and floating, when to yell for help and safety usinglifejackets.The pilot program with OttawaElementary has 35 students par-ticipating.“As this program expandsthere is the potential to haveover 500 kids participating,”Featherolf said.The class is currently taught byFeatherolf and Peg Morman.“All of the kids come in excitedto learn,” Featherolf said. “It iswonderful to see a child who onthe first day is afraid or uncom-fortable in the water. And by theend of the week has learned toget their face wet and even beginto swim a little.”Featherolf said is it satisfyingto know that what the studentshave learned may one day savetheir life.“With the YMCA being one of the largest providers of swim-ming lessons in the country itwas important for me to see this program get off of the ground,”Featherolf said. “It is a valuableexperience for the youth as itmay be the first many of thesekids have had any structuredswim lessons or even been in a pool.”She said with school fundsbeing limited it is also importantto the Y that they do not chargefor the program.“I never want money to be areason why a child doesn’t learnto swim,” Featherolf said.

COLUMBUS GROVE — And thefinal Jeopardy answer is: This fam-ily practiced dentistry in ColumbusGrove for 100 years. Question: Whois the Hilty family?When Mark Hilty, DDS, retired this past fall, his family’s dental practicehad been a fixture in the Colum-bus Grove community for 100 years.Dr. Hilty’s father, Alvan, graduatedfrom the Ohio College of Dentistryin Cincinnati and began his prac-tice in Columbus Grove in 1911.Mark recalled, “My father had touse a foot pump for power until theelectricity was turned on at night.” Alvan’s office was open on Wednes-day and Saturday nights, as that waswhen people came to town to shop.Patients often paid the dentist ingoods, rather than in cash.Dr. Hilty said, “I always knew Iwanted to be in dentistry.” As a mem-ber of the Columbus Grove HighSchool Class of 1943, he intended toenter college right out of high school.He explained, “I got interrupted;Uncle Sam wanted me.” He servedin the U.S. Army Corps of Engineersduring World War II in the EuropeanTheater, the Asiatic Theater, and thePhilippines. When he got out of theservice in 1946, Dr. Hilty went toThe Ohio State University, wherehe earned his degree in 1952. Hisbrother, Donald, also an OSU gradu-ate, had already joined their fatherin the family practice. The Hiltysbuilt their current office in 1940,when Donald joined the practice,and expanded it in 1952, after Markgraduated, to accommodate addi-tional patients. The three men prac-ticed together for forty years. Markwas in practice for 59 years, duringwhich time he estimated he treatedthree to four thousand people. It was very important to him to completethe one hundred-year milestone!Dr. Hilty recalled some memo-rable moments from his practice.He treated many patients who hadinjuries to their front teeth. He saidone time, two young sisters werefighting, and one threw a telephoneat the other, resulting in a chippedtooth. He related another occasionin which a 140-pound teen got intoa fight on the way to school with a250-pound schoolmate. The smaller youngster had his tooth knockedout during the scuffle, and couldnot find it. Dr. Hilty had to makea replacement for him. Another patient was working the chains ata football game and inadvertentlygot in on a play, which resulted ina tooth being knocked out. Peopleoften presented themselves to thedentist with sports-related mouthinjuries. He remembered, “It seemedthat 10 minutes after a game, a kidwould be at the door with a brokenor missing tooth. I always put the teakettle on to make some cocoa (afterarriving home from the games). Iburned up a few tea kettles becauseI was working on the kids!”Dr. Hilty began completing post-graduate studies before it wasrequired by the State. He believedit was important to keep currentwith the changes, especially tech-nology, in the industry. In 1957, heattended a class pertaining to ath-letic mouth guards. Because he rec-ognized the effects that sports inju-ries had on students’ dental health,he approached the Columbus GroveSchool administrators to encour-age the use of mouth guards. Thisresulted in Dr. Hilty donating mouthguards for Columbus Grove Schoolathletes, a practice he has contin-ued to date. According to Dr. Hilty,the technology in dentistry is “amaz-ing!” He was especially impressedwith the advent of the laser, whichexpanded his capabilities in the field.He chuckled, “I really wanted a boat.But the laser came out, so I boughtthe laser instead!”Dr. Hilty credited his wife, Marge,as being an integral part of his prac-tice. The couple, which was intro-duced by a cousin at church, mar-ried in 1950. Marge graduated fromthe OSU Dental Hygiene School in1951. She laughed, “My license is#375 in Ohio!” The couple workedside-by-side the entire length of Mark’s tenure. When asked thesecret of working together andbeing happily married, Mark quicklyreplied, “Love conquers all things!”Marge readily agreed, adding thather parents had worked together ontheir farm, so she was used to thattype of relationship. She continued,“Mark and I have common goals,although we have our own activi-ties. Family always came first!” Thecouple has three children: Lynn, anurse in Toledo; Mark, a doctor inRhode Island; and Bruce, the Com-munity Operations Coordinator atthe Allen County Metropolitan Hous-ing Authority in Lima. Bruce alsofounded the Allen County Habitatfor Humanity, and is currently the president of that board.If he had to do it all again, Dr.Hilty surmised he would still choosedentistry as a profession, but “onmy own terms. “ He was very proudof his personalized family practice.He got to know his patients well,and treated multiple generationsof families. Dr. Hilty never adver-tised his services in the media, as itwas frowned upon when he was inschool. He joked, “I got my patientsthrough word of mouth!”Dr. Hilty said he wants to beremembered as a man who wasdedicated to family values and com-munity service. He was active in BoyScouts, and has been a long-timemember of the Columbus GroveLions Club. He has served on theTown Council and Board of Public Affairs. In addition, he is active in theGrace Mennonite Church.The next time you see healthysmiles in Columbus Grove, it may very well be thanks to Dr. MarkHilty!

To the editor,
 As a frequent user of Road 5 between Leipsicand Pandora I’ve comeacross accident scenesand observed many nearaccidents on the road.It is so narrow that itis a miracle that semisdon’t smack each other’srear view mirrors whenthey pass.It is difficult forfarmers like myself totransport tillage toolsand planters on it. Thewidening is especiallyneeded now that Pro-Tec’s expansion is tak-ing place. The 30 or so people protesting itswidening want I-75 southtruck traffic to stay onstate routes.This is unrealistic timewise and fuel wise.Rerouting Road 5traffic to SR 65 southor SR235 south wouldwaste around 1 – 2 hoursof the drivers’ time on around trip. A typical semi burns 7gallons of fuel an hour so you do the math.The people protestingthe widening are hurtingthe county’s progress.The factories in Leipsic pay their employees very well and the trickledown effect helps justabout every person in thecounty to some degree.Grants have been madeavailable to the commis-sioners to pay for thebulk of the project.The commissionershave promised to payRoad 5 landowners a fairappraisal price. At this time the repeti-tive mantra of the pro-testers complainingabout the project seemsmore like badgering of the commissioners thananything else.The commissionerswere elected to serveall of the county’s over30,000 citizens who wantto see Putnam County prosper and the road-ways improved.
