With more megafarms comes more issues, concerns
Terry Wehrkamp of Cooper Farms
was at the meeting as a representative
of megafarms. He commented that,
while he couldn’t speak for all mega-
farms, Cooper Farms works very hard
to be a part of the community around it
and does all it can to make sure the
farms are as little of a problem for
those living in the area as possible.
Of the issues concerning the group,
the most important was declining
property values caused from being lo-
PAULDING – An organization
formed for Paulding County residents
concerned about large livestock farms,
what they call “megafarms” or “facto-
ry farms”, held their fourth meeting to
discuss the issue on Tuesday, July 8.
With about 50 from Paulding
County in attendance, the group dis-
cussed the problems associated with
megafarms and possible remedies to
the situation. There were also a number
of representatives from certain mega-
farms in attendance at the meeting to
defend procedures used by these farm
businesses in their operations.
The Citizens Concerned for Quality
Health, Water and Air in Paulding
County have three main issues, which
are as follows:
“1. We have a right to enjoy our
home and property. 2. We care about
quality health, air and water. 3. We
want legislation, regulations and local
control that protect us and our rights.”
Paulding County resident Pat
Paulus, former professor of biology at
Texas Christian University, led the
meeting, and let attendees know that
she didn’t know the significance of the
issue until one of the megafarms came
near her house. After that, she started
researching the problems and found
that they involve issues such as, declin-
ing property values, health concerns,
air quality and water quality.
“If we sit on our hands and don’t do
anything, we’re going to have more
manure and soon it is going to be on
your road,” Paulus warned those at the
Feature Writer
Paulding County Sheriff
Jason Landers has an-
nounced a series of meet-
ings to discuss the possibili-
ty of reopening the Paulding
County Jail.
“My purpose at the con-
clusion of these meetings is
simply to have a show of
hands on how many folks
want to see an operating
levy on the ballot and how
many don’t,” said Landers.
“I will then work with the
commissioners to see what
direction we should take.”
The meeting schedule is
as follows:
• July 17 – 6 p.m. at
Auglaize Fire Department,
7:30 p.m. at Crane
Township Fire Department
• July 18, – 6 p.m. at

Department, 7:30 p.m. at

“I would like to talk with
our taxpayers about options
with the jail for the future,”
said Landers. “I plan to
share information, give at-
tendees a chance to speak
and then ask for a show of
hands at the end of the meet-
ing. I want to give citizens a
Landers said that he is
considering putting an oper-
ating levy on the ballot this
November, if there is
enough sentiment to warrant
it. The sheriff said that plans
would be for around a 1-mill
operating levy that would
generate a little more than
$400,000 a year. He noted
that actual operational costs
over a $250,000 increase
per year adding just eight
full-time employees, and
over $400,000 if the jail
went back up to the staff it
had in 2008, but there is
some uncertainty as to how
much it could be costing by
the end of five years.
“We are a union shop that
never closes and will have
two contract negotiations
within the next five years.
That makes projections a lit-
tle more difficult,” said
“I project that if we were
to open the jail, it would
take at least a year to get it
open,” said Landers. “We
would have to train workers,

OAKWOOD – Three peo-
ple were injured in a two-ve-

PAYNE – In a show of soli-
darity, the Payne Fire
Department came in force at
the Monday night Payne
Village Council meeting. After
reading in the Progress last
month how fellow firefighter
Mike James approached the
council with concerns about
the leadership of the fire de-
partment and the trustworthi-
ness of its members, it was ap-
parent the other members had
different ideas.
Those representing the fire
department at Monday night’s
meeting included Leroy
Henderson, Amber Sherman,
Gary Gasser, Jason Sherman,
Josh Anderson, Doug Bower,
Ben Thomas and Jesse
Heffner, who served as their
Heffner told council that the
department gets along very
well and they train hard to-
gether in order to be a depart-
ment of which the community
would be proud.
“We all get along and we do
our training. We feel that Chief
(Jamie) Mansfield and (EMS
coordinator) Joe (Garmyn) got
thrown under the bus,” said
He went on to say that the
department likes their chief
and that they do what they can
to make the town a better
“Tonight, we came to the
meeting because we felt like
you needed to hear both sides
of the story.”
Heffner elaborated briefly
about one concern that he had
within the department and it
dealt with not having enough
fire hose. Later in the meeting,
Chief Mansfield informed
council that hose testing had
been done and it was deter-
mined that 600 feet of hose
was no good and could no
longer be used. “This is an
area that is critical in our de-
It is estimated to cost be-
tween $3,400 and $4,400 to
replace 500 feet of 5-inch
In other business concern-
ing the fire department,
Heffner approached the coun-
cil concerning the possibility
of having a gun raffle. The de-
partment is seeking permis-
sion from council to sell gift
certificates that would entitle
the winner to purchase a gun.
There would be two gift cer-
tificates awarded.
“We would like to know if
we can do this so we can pro-
ceed and have the drawing at
the fall festival,” said Heffner.
There was no action taken on
giving permission and in the
meantime council will be
checking with its insurance
agent and possibly the village
solicitor for a better under-
standing before permission is

cated near the megafarms.
These declining property val-
ues are due to a number of is-
sues, including poor odor and
air quality, the excess amount
of manure generated and used,
problems involved with water
quality because of manure
generated and water needed to
feed the livestock, and the lack
of local control over the loca-
tion and operations of the
The biggest of these con-
cerns was the large amount of
manure generated and used by
the megafarms and the prob-
lems that brought on the prop-
erties in the area. One of these
problems is the smell generat-
ed by the mega farms.
Meeting attendees who also
attended township meetings
regarding the mega farms re-
ported that they were told that
the smell would last about six
months. Now, in some cases
two or more years later, they
say that smell still exists and
makes spending time outside
no longer enjoyable.
Whether that means sitting
out looking at the stars, having
cook outs or celebrating holi-
days such as Independence
Day, they can no longer enjoy
life outdoors at home with the
smell of the mega farms per-
meating their property. Paulus
mentioned that she often
checks the wind direction to
find out if the smell will be
heading toward her home.
Paulus commented that ma-
nure in itself isn’t a problem if
there isn’t too much of it and it
is well managed. This state-
ment reinforced a sentiment
throughout the meeting that
there are megafarms that fulfill
the regulations set forth and
megafarms that do not.
Some of the issues dis-
cussed that involve mega
farms not following require-
ments include farms spreading
manure when rain is expected,
with the rain causing the ma-
nure to run off into the ditches.
Other violations include ma-
nure being sprayed off the
fields, getting manure on the
roads and other not-field areas.
Overall, the manure issue
was a major one among those
at the meeting. Denny
Sanderson commented that no
one wants Paulding County to
become the manure capital of
northwest Ohio, saying that
this will deter potential busi-
nesses and residents from lo-
cating in the county.
Paulus added that those op-
posed to megafarms are con-
cerned because no one knows
the amount of manure the en-
vironment can handle, and un-
less limits are set up, there
won’t be away to find out that
number until it is too late.
In addition to the manure
concern, those at the meeting
also discussed the worry of the
effect of the megafarms on the
water in the area. One such
issue that was discussed was
the issue of water quality. The
group was concerned about
the quality of the water in the
reservoirs, streams and ditches
in the area of the megafarms.
Sanderson asked about the
possibility of doing testing on
the megafarm properties.
Paulus responded that individ-
uals were not allowed to do
testing on farm property be-
cause of trespassing laws, but
could do testing in ditches and
streams not on the property.
Sanderson went on to say that
there should be a requirement
in place in which the farms are
forced to do their own water
Another area of concern in-
volving water was the use of
water in large amounts. The
group discussed the effect of
large use of water involved in
feeding and cleaning the live-
stock on the area aquifer,
which is the underground
water supply that provides the
water for the area. The group
was concerned the large use of
water would cause a water
shortage in the long term.
Even with all of the con-
cerns, most people at the meet-
ing agreed that there are good
and bad megafarm operations,
with one of the good ones
being Cooper Farms.
However, the sentiment still
existed that Cooper Farms’
megafarms were causing
property values to decline.
Wehrkamp offered an invi-
tation to anyone with concerns
to stop by a Cooper Farms fa-
cility to take a tour and see
how it is operated. He com-
mented that Cooper Farms op-
erates with the community in
mind, and if they didn’t have
their farms in Paulding
County, another facility would
move in, and that mega farm
might not have the same out-
look as Cooper Farms.
Paulding County resident
Lou Levy disagreed with
Wehrkamp’s assessment of the
“You talk about the devil
you know being better than the
devil you don’t,” but you are
both still devils if you are put-
ting your farm next to my
property,” he said.
Levy went on to say that
home owners have the right to
enjoy their properties, but they
can’t because of the farms. He
also mentioned that they can’t
move either because no one
wants to buy a house located
next to a megafarm.
Paulus echoed Levy’s
thoughts, saying that the farms
and the property owners aren’t
all in this together because
while the property owners are
seeing the property values de-
cline, the mega farms are see-
ing profits.
Wehrkamp reiterated that
Cooper Farms wants to edu-
cate residents about these
farms and how they operate.
He was asked to confirm or
deny a rumor that a lot of peo-
ple at the meeting had heard
saying that Cooper Farms is
planning to bring 17-20 new
farms to Paulding County.
Wehrkamp confirmed that it
was true.
Paulus commented that

back up to standards and look
at anything else it would take
to properly open it. Some
things may have changed be-
cause of the time that has
elapsed (six years) since the
jail was open.
“We want to make it clear
that it will cost more money
to open the jail than to send
the prisoners to other facili-
ties,” said Landers. “But, it is
also true that money that is
[currently] leaving the county
will come back to the county.
There will be eight to 12 new
full-time jobs and a host of
part-time jobs needed to re-
open. We will spend more

Landers said that the issue
that the public generally does-
n’t see is the time and expense
of sending county employees
to other facilities to transfer
prisoners. It takes 45-50 min-
utes to drive one way to carry
our local responsibilities to
Putnam County.
“One of the biggest issues
the public doesn’t see is the
safety issue,” noted the sher-
iff. “I think of how many trips
we’ve made in six years and
nobody has been hurt.
“For residents who have in-
mates in jail, it would be nice
if they wouldn’t have to drive
so far to see them,” continued
Landers said that he is
aware that having the meet-
ings could stir up some emo-
“I just want to see where

Landers said. “I am thinking

PAULDING – The Village
of Paulding is planning to
flush the fire hydrants and the
water distribution system be-
ginning July 21. The work
may continue several weeks.
Village officials say resi-
dents may notice pressure and
color change problems during
this process.
“We encourage residents to
check their water before doing
laundry, cooking or using the
shower,” they said. “When the
distribution lines have been
flushed you may still notice
problems in your residential
water service lines. You may
let your water run until it is
clear again.”
It is suggested that hot water

PAULDING – A benefit will be held
at the Paulding Eagles to help support
local resident Steve “Spock” Clark and
raise money to help pay for medical
expenses, bills, travel expenses and
other costs related to Clark’s recent
cancer diagnosis. The event will take
place on Saturday, July 19 at 5 p.m.
(See related story.)
Clark was diagnosed with stage 4
lung cancer in early April of this year.
He first noticed something wasn’t right
when he felt a couple lumps on the left
side of his neck. Until finding the
lumps, he felt basically normal, and
since he describes himself as not one
to go to the doctor, his cancer wasn’t
caught until it had spread out of his
lungs to the lumps on his neck and a
mass on his right side as well.
One message he wants to pass on to
everyone is to not put off going to the
doctor. He encourages people that they
need to schedule regular physicals and
go to the doctor when they don’t feel
well in order to catch health concerns
in a timely manner.
The doctors gave Clark a prognosis
of about 12-14 months, but he is confi-
dent that he will beat the odds. Clark, a
gifted auto-body technician, looks for-
ward to seeing his son, a senior at
Vantage Career Center who has fol-
lowed his dad’s footsteps and is study-
ing auto-body, graduate at the end of
the coming school year.
Clark has had three chemotherapy
treatments, but the doctors have told
him that his cancer is inoperable and
will never be completely gone. Their
hope is to shrink it and stop it from
growing and spreading throughout his
body. Clark says he feels great right
now, but that doesn’t mean he won’t
wake up not feeling good tomorrow.
Overall, Clark is staying optimistic.
He jokes that he’s gone through his
nine lives twice and then some and,
even though this new obstacle took
him by surprise, he isn’t giving up.
One factor in his optimism is the peo-
ple around him that are supporting him
and encouraging him.
“I want to let everyone know that I
love them from the bottom of my
heart,” Clark says emotionally.
He goes on to say he wants to thank
his family, his friends, and everyone
who is organizing, participating in and
donating to the upcoming benefit. He
describes the experience as unreal and
more than he could have ever imag-
ined seeing the love being shown to
One of the fun activities to look for-
ward to at the benefit is the “Spock
Impersonation” contest. When talking
about the impending impersonations of
him, Clark smiles coyly and says that
he has said some remarks that have
stood out, and now he is looking for-
ward to seeing people acting like him.
It would be easy for Clark to feel
down about his situation, but he says
he has known a lot of people with can-
cer in his life and adds that there are
way too many people with cancer right
now. He father and stepfather each
died of cancer, so he has experienced
what having a loved one with the dis-
ease can be like. However, he always
reminds himself of how beautiful it is
to have so many friends and family
members who want to help him and
support him during this tough time.
In addition to reminding everyone to
see the doctor regularly so health is-
sues can be caught quickly, Clark
wants to pass along some other advice.
He wants people to realize the impor-
tance of spending plenty of time with
their children since you never know
what might happen. He also comments
that, although he might not be the most
religious person, he knows that a trust
and belief in God is very important in
a complete life.

American flags
should be
American made
By U. S. Senator Sherrod Brown
As we celebrated Independence Day earlier this month,
Americans took time to honor and celebrate our great nation.
One way we can continue to express our patriotism is to support
American workers and businesses.
That’s why I introduced the All-American Flag Act, which re-
quires American flags bought by the federal government to be
produced entirely with American-made materials. Right now,
the federal government is required to purchase flags made from
only a minimum of 50 percent American-made materials.
There’s no reason why the American flag, the very symbol of
our nation and the men and women who have bravely served in
the armed forces, can’t be made right here at home. With Ohio
companies proudly producing the American flag, taxpayer funds
shouldn’t be used to purchase flags from other countries. It’s
easy to buy an American flag made in Ohio. RS Sewing, Inc., in
Canton, is the nation’s largest supplier of American-made stick
flags, and Annin Flagmakers has a manufacturing plant in
This holiday, and every day, an American flag, made by
American workers with American-made materials is the right
way to honor our veterans and support our manufacturers.
Last week, the All-American Flag Act came one step closer to
becoming law when it passed through committee. Now, I urge
both the Senate and the House to pass this bill and support fu-
ture “Buy America” provisions to ensure that American tax-
payer dollars benefit American workers and businesses.
Brown is (D-OH) U.S. Senator for the state of Ohio.

In My Opinion
‘Enjoy the heat!’

It’s just beginning, the season we call summer and in my
opinion it will be cold again all too soon. I remember a song by
Nat King Cole that was played over and over in my youth that
went something like this, “Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days
of summer.” The song ended with the line, “You’ll wish that
summer could always be here.”
I found it hard to believe a
few days ago I heard a com-
ment, “I sure do wish it
would cool down, I’m tired of
all this hot weather.” I’m sure
it was just a couple of months
ago that we were wondering
if we would get enough warm
weather to melt the huge piles
of snow in the parking lots and the drifts along 127 that were
higher than my car. Well not everyone has had enough summer
so bring on the heat and humidity, my opinion is that, I enjoy
my air conditioned office, car, home, shopping centers, restau-
rants and yes even my church. So roll out those hot, hazy days
of summer.
It seems to me that some people just need to complain. I think
that some people would complain no matter what the weather
situation; because this is something we can complain about and
know deep down inside that there is nothing we can do about it
except complain.
In all seriousness I would rather hear complaints about the
weather than about family situations. You know those com-
plaints that can cause a lot of trouble unless they are controlled
and differences set aside for the common good.
Some complaints are just annoying like the volume of the TV or
radio, speed of someone driving by our house, paying too much
tax, or maybe someone having too many dogs or cats. Oh yes, I
am sure that each one of us could add a few more complaints to
this meager list.
When I was a boy, I remember the Hot Stove League, which
consisted of a number of area men who gathered at my grandfa-
ther’s grocery store to sit around the old warm morning stove
and complain about everything. Some complained about the
heat, cold, wet, dry, government, prices, and just about anything
you could imagine.
In conclusion, my opinion is that when I am complaining, to
myself or others, I am disrupting the natural flow of good, posi-
tive thoughts and causing internal strife that is not good for my
general well being, so rather than complain about the heat, think
about a song by Nat King Cole that went something like this,
“Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, You’ll wish
that summer could always be here.”
I do hope to see you in church this Sunday; we need to talk
because we have something in common. Who knows, we might
even find time to complain about something.

Palmer amaranth management tips
By Mark Holtsberry
Education specialist
Paulding SWCD
Palmer amaranth is one of the most danger-
ous weeds for Ohio agriculture. It is one of the
fastest spreading weeds that is trying to get a
foothold in the corn belt. It can spread quickly
unless stopped in its tracks. Check out the fol-
lowing facts:
• Palmer amaranth is an annual broad leaf
and is related to other amaranth species like
pigweed, waterhemp and redroot.
• It grows faster than other pigweed
species and can grow 2-3 inches per day.
Some studies have reported it can reduce corn
and soybean yields by 70-80 percent, if not
• Palmer amaranth has already caused
problems in the south and recent reports from
Kentucky indicate it is marching north and
east, spreading into Illinois, Ohio, Indiana and
• Each Palmer amaranth plant can produce
up to one million seeds. The heads containing
the seed can be more than 20 inches long and
each plant can produce multiple seed heads.
• Now that most of the crops are planted,
we must pay attention to weed control, espe-
cially, if Palmer amaranth is suspected. As
with all weeds, it is easier to kill them when
they are small.
• Most of the Palmer amaranth popula-
tions are resistant to glyphosate and ALS her-
bicides, although some atrazine resistant
populations have been found.
Some of the strategies recommended by
Purdue scientists are: Rotate crops with herbi-
cides; use suitable herbicides; deep tillage to
bury seeds of Palmer amaranth; use crimped
cereal rye grass as cover crop and keep
drainage ditches and field borders clean.
Hopefully this can curb Palmer amaranth.

Krystal Albright returned from the state competition in Special
Olympics with the coveted title of 2014 State Female Champion.
Albright, a bicyclist won three races and her combined time gave
her the title for two consecutive years.
Albright returns home
as 2014 state champion
Krystal Albright, daughter of
Kevin and Nancy Albright,
loves riding her bike. Many of
you may have seen her as she
rides around Paulding and the
surrounding area.
Krystal first started compet-
ing in Special Olympics, in cy-
cling, in 2010. In 2011, she
finished female third place in
the State of Ohio. In 2012, she
moved up to female second
place in the State of Ohio and
in 2013, she advanced to first
place, earning her the title of
female State Champion 2013.
The 2014 State Summer
Games were held June 27-29 in
Columbus. Over 2,500 athletes
traveled to the Ohio State Uni-
versity campus where they
competed for the gold in their
sport. Krystal was excited to
once again earn her way to
state competitions where she
was one of those athletes.
Although she was excited to
be chosen to represent Pauld-
ing County, she was also con-
cerned. Krystal has had
medical issues the last few
months that have kept her from
getting in the miles she needed
to be prepared. The part Krys-
tal likes best about training is
when she works on her en-
durance. She, along with her
coach who is her dad, ride their
bikes to Defiance, Van Wert
and even Fort Wayne. This
year, they didn’t get many of
these trips in due to her health.
The day of Krystal’s races
began with her focusing on just
being able to finish her races
without needing to pull out of
her competition due to medical
issues. At 8 a.m. she had bike
inspection. Her bike was
checked over to make sure it
was in good condition and was
safe for her to race. This was
followed by a short coach’s
meeting and then the athlete’s
practice lap. So far everything
was going well.
After she finished her prac-
tice lap, Krystal discovered an-
other racer had a problem, in
that their bike did not pass in-
spection. She would not be al-
lowed to race. Krystal showed
true sportsmanship when she
offered her backup bike to the
athlete so she would be able to
Race day was 90 degrees,
sunny, with very high humidity.
It was a very uncomfortable
day. All the athletes need to be
commended on competing in
those weather conditions. Even
with the heat and high humidity
Krystal did great in her races.
She raced her 5 mile with a
time of 20:35, her 1 mile with
a time of 3:48, and her 3 mile
with a time of 12:45. Krystal
earned gold in all three races.
Next was the stage race, the
Tour-de-France, which com-
pares the cumulative times of
racers. Krystal had a total time
of 37:08; her time placed her in
first place. She earned the title
of 2014 Female State Cham-
pion. This is the second year in
a row that she has earned the
title of female state champion.
Krystal brought back to Pauld-
ing gold in all three of her races
and the state champion trophy.
As you can imagine, her
parents are very proud of her.
Not only of the things she has
accomplished, but of the per-
son she is. Not everyone
would offer a bike to a com-
petitor so they could com-
pete. This shows true
If you see Krystal out and
about let her know how proud
Paulding County is of her.

Scouts visit
adventure camp

A crew of teenage Scouts and their leaders went on a life-
changing summer trek through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains
at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, N.M.
Philmont covers 214 square miles of vast wilderness with
trails that climb from 6,500 feet to as high as 12,441 feet. Dur-
ing their trek, Boy Scout Troop #315 hiked nearly 100 miles
over 12 days.
The group of Scouts and their advisors carried everything
they needed to survive during the trek on their backs while hik-
ing from camp to camp. They participated in backcountry pro-
grams along the way including rock climbing, mountain
biking, 30-06 rifle shooting/reloading and horseback riding.
The trek included a conservation project where the Scouts
learned and participated in the upkeep of Philmont’s ecosys-
Along the trek, Scouts endured tough challenges including
backpacking in bear and mountain lion territory, steep climbs,
and often-inclement weather.
“They may meet only one other group of Scouts on the trail
in an entire day of hiking,” according to Backpacker Magazine.
“Even in the most crowded destinations, each Scout group
camps in isolation, out of sight and sound of all other groups.”
The crew made what amounts to a Scouting pilgrimage with
their trip to Philmont. Philmont Scout Ranch is the Boy Scouts
of America’s premier high adventure camp and the largest
youth camp in the world, serving nearly one million partici-
pants since 1938.
Area individuals and businesses including Shilderink Dairy,
MTJ Farms, Kiwanis, Black Swamp Arbor, Paulding County
Area Foundation, Phil Recker, Arend, Laukhuf & Stoller, Mike
Arend, and Lafarge contributed to the Scouts’ fundraising ef-

OSU Extension to host annual Precision Ag Technology Day
WAUSEON – The OSU Extension
Office in Fulton County will be hold-
ing its 3rd Annual Northwest Ohio
Precision Agriculture Technology
Day on Tuesday, Aug. 5 from 8 a.m.-
3:30 p.m. at the Fulton County Fair-
grounds in Wauseon. This year the
event will focus on combines, preci-
sion harvest technology, grain han-
dling and data collection.
Archbold Equipment Case IH, John
Deere Kenn-Feld Group, and Ohio
Ag Equipment with Lexion and
Gleaner combines are headline spon-
sors for this event and will have their
newest combines on hand for farmers
and Certified Crop Consultants
(CCA) to view.
The event will start with registra-
tion and sponsor exhibits at 8 a.m. in
the Junior Fair Building. In the morn-
ing, participants will hear from Exten-
sion and ag industry professionals
who will be discussing agronomics,
technology, safety and data collection.
The first session will feature Dr.
John Fulton, OSUE’s new machine
and precision systems specialist, to
discuss using data telematics to make
informed agronomic decisions. Fulton
County Sheriff Roy Miller will give
comments on harvest safety and Dr.
Scott Shearer, chair of the OSU De-
partment of Food, Agricultural and
Biological Engineering, will discuss
all the latest technology used to har-
vest data while harvesting grain.
The morning will conclude with a
discussion of imagery data collected
with drones followed by a drone
demonstration. Ohio Ag Net’s Dale
Minyo will be present to kick off their
western Ohio crop tour.
Perhaps the most valuable part of
the day will be the clinic demonstra-
tions after lunch. Case IH, Gleaner,
John Deere and Lexion representa-
tives will all instruct farmers and
CCAs on how to adjust their machine
and calibrate harvest technology prior
to this fall’s harvest. Producers will
have a chance to interact and dialogue
with manufacturers and their corre-

The Village of Paulding is planning to flush
Fire Hydrants and the Water Distribution
System beginning the week of July 21st. The
work may continue for several weeks. You
may notice pressure and color change prob-
lems during the flushing period. We encour-
age residents to check their water before
doing laundry, cooking or using the shower.
When the distribution lines have been
flushed you may still notice problems in your
residential water service lines. You may let
your water run until it is clear again. Hot
water storage may be cleared by running a
washing machine through a full cycle with no
clothes. Questions or concerns may be di-
rected to Mike Winners, Water/Wastewater
Superintendent, at 419-399-2976 or by email
at mwinners@windstream.net.
John was awarded with a $500 gift card to
Cabela's. His personal commitment to quality
is obvious in everything he does.
We recognize and appreciate
your dedicated efforts.

Soil & water names
new district technician
Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING – Paulding
County Soil and Water De-
partment has welcomed a
new member to its team. In
mid-June, the department
hired Deb Hubbard as the
county’s district technician.
Hubbard comes to Pauld-
ing County after serving the
Defiance County Engineer’s
office from 1997 through
2005 and then worked in the
Defiance Soil and Water de-
partment since 2006.
A graduate of Fairview
High School and Bowling
Green State University with a
degree in design, Hubbard
currently lives in Ayersville
and is looking forward to her
new assignment.
“When you look at the en-
tire scope of what we try to
do as a conservation depart-
ment, it is amazing the num-
ber of people we come in
contact with in hopes of mak-
ing a difference in protecting
the land,” said Hubbard.
When considering all of
her job related responsibili-
ties, Hubbard, with a broad
smile on her face says, “Well,
I guess you could say I wear
many hats. I work with local
farmers somewhat like their
advocate, with county and re-
gional leaders and even state
people when it comes to look-
ing at ways to protect our
land by keeping the natural
nutrients in the ground while
improving the quality of
water. It’s a very complex
process but at the same time
it’s rewarding when we can
help a local farmer with a
ditch problem or an erosion
issue,” she said.
By wearing many hats,
Hubbard expressed some of
her duties including survey
work, map detailing and en-
gineering work along with
outdoor work such as field
and ditch erosion, property
lines, as well as complaints.
“Right now I am spending
about half my time in the of-
fice and the other half in the
field. Often times I am called
out to investigate manure
complaints. If manure gets
into the ditches and contami-
nates the water then we have
obvious problems. When
someone calls the office with
a complaint we need to re-
spond. It requires walking the
field, investigating the prob-
lem and making necessary
suggestions for improve-
ment,” Hubbard said.
In 2013, the local depart-
ment cleaned 10 miles of
ditches, along with making
seven repairs to ditch erosion
and over 100 ditch mainte-
nance projects. Hubbard be-
lieves the trend will continue
and work in Paulding County
will increase as long as fund-
ing is made available,
Hubbard stressed the im-
portance of working the
ground in such a way that it
keeps its nutrients in order to
help the farmer in the long
“When farmers or residents
in the rural areas have
drainage issues or ditch prob-
lems, they need to call our of-
fice for help. Often times we
can assist them with answers
and the needed resources to
possibly assist them in a pos-
itive way,” Hubbard said.
The Paulding County Soil
and Water Conservation De-
partment also rents various
pieces of equipment includ-
ing tillers, mowers and a tree
planter. Hubbard also sched-
ules the use of equipment and
for those interested they need
to call the office at 399-4771.
Deb Hubbard, the new Paulding County district technician for
the Soil and Water Department makes some minor adjustments
to a piece of survey equipment used in the field. Hubbard
started her new job in mid-June and is looking forward to serv-
ing the rural community.
hearing those numbers is what worries the
group. She commented that the property own-
ers are having to deal with the smell, having
their aquifer used up, having roads damaged
by large trucks, and the company is getting the
profits. She called the situation “not very
Wehrkamp responded that all farming requires
fertilizer because farmers don’t want to use the
land and not re-fertilize it, adding that manure is
economical and completely safe if done prop-
As the meeting began to wind down, Paulus
discussed some remedies or ways to combat
some of the concerns expressed at the meeting.
Some of these ideas included writing letters to
the editor of area newspapers and starting a pe-
tition to limit the megafarms.
She also told attendees to keep an eye out for
violations such as spreading manure on frozen
ground, spreading manure in a solid stream
rather than using a sprayer, getting manure on
non-field areas when spraying and driving semis
that are over the weight limit for the roads they
are on.
Paulus encouraged everyone to take pictures
of these violations and fill out written incident
reports of the situation.
She also asked everyone to pick a topic that
was discussed at the meeting and research it to
learn more about it and report back to the group.
Some of those topics include wells and aquifers,
permit requirements, manure management prac-
tices, environmental factors, and right to farm vs.
home-rule information.
Closing the meeting, Paulus commended
everyone in attendance on both sides of the ar-
guments on their abilities to discuss the issue
while being respectful. She hopes the group con-
tinues to meet and doesn’t let this issue die. The
next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 5 at
the Nature Center in Paulding.

ACME Season ends for Paulding
Progress Staff Writer
BRYAN – In an opportunity to continue
its play in the ACME baseball tournament,
Paulding needed a win over Bryan in order
to make it to the district finals against De-
fiance. Both Bryan and Paulding had one
loss and another set back would send one
of the teams packing for the summer.
Paulding looked as though they were
ready to take care of business by jumping
out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning but the
three run margin would not hold up long.
Bryan answered with four runs in the sec-
ond and coasted to a 14-4 win.
A combination of Paulding hitting and
defensive errors by the Gold Bears turned
costly in the opening frame. The Panthers
started out strong with a single by Corbin
Edwards followed by a single from team
mate Preston Johanns allowing Edwards to
The early one-run lead swelled to three
but the lead was wiped out when Bryan
came back to score four in the second fol-
lowed by six runs in the third and then
capped off the night with four runs in the
fourth ending the game with the 10-run
mercy rule.
The winning pitcher, Austin Hutchinson,
went the distance for Bryan scattering four
hits while striking out seven. For Paulding,
Preston Johanns took the loss going two in-
nings, giving up four runs on three hits and
two walks. New head coach Brock
Bergman also used Alex Arellano, Corbin
Edwards and Cameron Doster on the
Leading hitters for Paulding were Arel-

Summer reading
fun at the library
Summer Reading Program
has officially begun at the
Payne Branch Library. The
branch is taking an artistic
spin on this year’s theme,
“Fizz. Boom. READ!” to learn
about science and the arts.
Twenty-one children attended
the first session and learned
all about the life of Leonardo
da Vinci. They listened to two
stories, made Renaissance
berets, and had a paper air-
plane festival. Find them on
Facebook to see more pic-
tures of this fun event.
The Virtual Academy classroom is equipped with some of the
latest technology and computer friendly furniture. Student Jacob
O’Donnell gets comfortable in one of the desk chairs that can
be modified to each student’s individual needs.
Virtual Academy brings
new courses to Antwerp
Together, 16 districts use technology to serve students
Progress Staff Writer
In early December 2013,
the 16 member consortium
made up of school districts in
Northwest Ohio received
word they had received a $3.4
million grant for the North-
west Ohio Virtual Academy
(NOVA). The 16 members
will now partner in using
today’s technology to bring
new learning experiences to
their students. One of the
school districts is Antwerp
Local, who, like the other 15
will soon launch their acad-
emy when the new school
year begins next month.
Antwerp superintendent
Patricia Ross is excited about
the new offerings at the
Antwerp campus.
“Basically, it will be online
learning but it will be so
much more. Our goal is to
offer students in our area the
opportunity to experience
new and exciting classes via
the computer and at the same
time enjoy and appreciate the
extra curricular activities we
offer here at Antwerp,” said
Students currently enrolled
at Antwerp, as well as those
who may have one time been a
part of the district but have
since left and would like to re-
turn, will have courses avail-
able to them through NOVA.
Those students who enroll in
the NOVA program, even on a
part-time basis to take one class
will become the responsibility
of the district.
“Students who enroll in
NOVA would also be enrolled
here at Antwerp and they could
participate in sports, plays or
clubs. Once they complete the
necessary class work they
would receive a diploma from
Antwerp Local Schools,” Ross
Ross explained the benefits
of the Virtual Academy as
being many.
“Being a small rural school,
like the other 15 districts, we
can not offer many of the Ad-
vanced Placement (AP)
courses or electives and now
students will have the opportu-
nity through the academy. Now
students can come into the lab
and take one class or several
classes that we normally do not
offer,” said Ross.
NOVA will offer 15 AP
courses, seven languages, and
many electives as well as ca-
reer-minded classes such as
hotel and hospitality, forensic
science and digital photogra-
“Right now we have stu-
dents from Antwerp who
have signed up for 30 differ-
ent electives,” said Ross.
As an example to how the
program will work, Ross ex-
plained that three students
from Antwerp want to take
Latin and scattered through-
out the other 15 districts are
others who are also taking
Latin. That group of students
would have online curricu-
lum designed for them and a
teacher within the consortium
who would monitor their
“We will be starting this
when the new school year be-
gins next month. There is a
lot of coordinating that needs
to be done as we continue to
work through all the details,”
she said.
Straight A grant monies
were used partially to set up
and equip the Antwerp school
lab with computers, laptops,
iPads, appropriate desks and
chairs in order to give the
room a college feel.
“With students coming into
the classroom atmosphere to
do their virtual assignment
work and then to have the
one-on-one camaraderie with
other students, I believe the
student will benefit in many
ways,” Ross said.
She pointed out that studies
show that students who are
enrolled in community
schools (online schools where
classes are performed exclu-
sively in the home) have a
graduation rate of just 30 per-
“I am a firm believer that
students need to have a tie
with a school district, a build-
ing, the brick and mortar, and
now we have the capability to
provide the traditional class-
room as well as the virtual
classroom,” commented the
The $3.4 million grant is
part of a $250 Straight A
grant through the state oper-
ating budget that was created
and signed by Gov. John R.
NOVA is created by the
following districts: Antwerp
Local, Archbold Local, Ay-
ersville Local, Central Local,
Edgerton Local, Edon North-
west Local, Evergreen Local,
Fayette Local, Four County
Career Center, Holgate Local,
Liberty Center Local, North-
eastern Local, Pike-Delta-
York Local, Stryker Local,
Swanton Local and Wauseon
HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF – It was recently revealed that the
Selective Service System in Pennsylvania mistakenly issued
over 14,000 notices to men born from 1893 to 1897 ordering them
to register for the military draft. It’s not the first time. John G.
Jelinek of Paulding stopped by the Progress office Friday after-
noon with a similar letter he received from the Selective Service
while living in Pennsylvania in 1986. It informed him he was re-
quired to register within 30 days of his 18th birthday. At that time
he was 59 years old and had been out of the active duty almost
40 years. Jelinek served in the U.S. Navy two years and is a “nu-
clear veteran.” He was a radar operator for the nuclear bomb
testing at Bikini Island in 1946. “I saw atomic clouds from the
radar scope,” said the Pennsylvania native, who has lived here
since 2000.
RUNNERS-UP – Team MAC Tigers from Antwerp were runner-up at G.R.B.A. National Girls
Tournament, held at Spiece in Fort Wayne. The local squad couldn’t overcome a strong and phys-
ical Gym Rats team in finals. Overall, the sixth grade girls team played well with victories over
squads from Indiana and Kentucky to get to finals. The girls return to Fort Wayne again next week
for AYBT Nationals. The team, coached by Mark Gregory, has a record of 26-6. Players are from
Crestview, Wayne Trace and Paulding. The is sponsored by the MAC Gym, Antwerp.
Dr. Mott recently hosted a pizza party for the Dr. Michael Mott DDS Paulding Major Boys baseball
team. The team celebrated its perfect season and league tournament championship win. Dr. Mott
has proudly sponsored summer ball programs in Paulding County for more than 15 years.

In The
Summertime tomato talk
Midsummer has arrived, and
with it, the beginning of the har-
vest of true summer fruits and
vegetables. These edibles love the
hot weather and won’t bolt like
those early bird fans of cool
spring would.
If there’s one vegetable that
nearly every gardener grows, it’s
the tomato. That’s not to say that
everyone loves tomatoes though.
I know this will be shocking to
many of you, but I’m not a fan of
a ripe, juicy, fresh tomato from
the garden.
I also know that my distaste for
fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes is
looked upon as a character flaw,
but I have to tell you that I simply
do not care. That, of course,
means more fresh tomatoes for
the rest of you!
In spite of my distaste for fresh
tomatoes, I grow them because
my husband likes them. He will
stand by the cherry tomato plants
and pick them, one after the other,
and pop them into his mouth like
candy. Ewww.
His all-time favorite has al-
ways been ‘Sungold’, but we
planted ‘Sunsugar’ this year, be-
cause of its high rating for flavor
and vigorous growth habit. In
spite of its thin skin, it’s also less
prone to splitting.
‘Sunsugar’ has been at the top
of many tomato taste lists, having
a Brix sweetness rating of 10,
which is extremely high. Lovers
of this tomato say it’s one of the
sweetest they’ve ever eaten, yet it
has just a tad bit of tartness to
keep things interesting. We’ll see
what my husband thinks when
we get some ripe ones. I might
even try them.
Another cherry tomato we’re
growing is ‘Indigo Rose’. I think
it’s fun to grow edibles that have
a color that’s out of the ordinary
and one year I grew several pur-
ple veggies. ‘Indigo Rose’ would
have fit right in with that garden,
as the skin of this tomato is pur-
ple, while the inside remains tra-
ditional red.
Just to add a twist to things, one
of the seed companies sent me a
grafted ‘Indigo Rose’ to try in my
garden, so I bought a traditional
seed-grown plant of the same va-
riety and I’m going to compare
the two to see if there’s any dif-
Grafted tomatoes have been on
the market for several years now
and they’re supposed to be supe-
rior to seed-grown varieties in a
couple of different ways. Grow-
ers take the rootstock of one vari-
ety of tomato that is shown to be
resistant to specific diseases and
graft a scion (top part of the plant)
from another type of tomato that
has great eating characteristics,
among other desirable traits.
The result is a stronger plant
that’s more resistant to certain dis-
eases that afflict tomatoes caused
by viruses or bacteria, depending
on the rootstock that’s used. This
leads to a healthier plant and
healthier plants have greater
yields. Supposedly.
So far, the grafted tomato is the
first one to produce a fruit (not
ripe yet), but the seeded plant isn’t
far behind and both plants are
covered with blooms. My hus-
band is standing by to conduct a
taste test because I would proba-
bly declare both to be yucky.
We’ve also got several tomato
volunteers coming up in the beets,
which is where we grew some
tomatoes last year. One of those
was a cherry type - ‘Sweet 1000’,
if I remember correctly, but that’s
a hybrid so we’ll see what the
volunteers end up being. They’re
not likely to be the same, since
hybrids don’t come true to seed.
They’re quite a bit smaller than
those we’re purposely growing,
so hopefully we’ll get some late
season fruits from them before
Just for the record, I like toma-
toes cooked in things like chili
and vegetable soup. And I love
salsa. Yes, I know...

The tomato is the hands-down No. 1 favorite edible to grow among American gardeners, whether it
be a cherry, grape, pear, paste or beefsteak, such as the heirloom ‘Brandywine’ shown here.
Sheriff: ‘I want to find out where
people stand’ on reopening jail
PAULDING – Over the next couple of
weeks, Paulding County Sheriff Jason K.
Landers will be conducting town hall meet-
ings throughout the county to seek the pub-
lic’s input in regards to placing a jail
operating tax levy on the November 2014
“To reopen the jail it will take new money.
I owe it to the taxpayers to address the issue
of the closed correctional facility. I hope
these meetings will give me a good idea one
way or the other as to how to proceed with
the jail operations,” said Sheriff Landers.
The meetings will take place at all eight
fire departments within the county.
“I feel that meeting at all fire depart-
ments will give the residents a chance to
show up and listen to the facts we have,
based on real numbers, as well as give their
opinions in a professional manner. I do not
foresee spending a lot of time revisiting the
negativity of the past regarding the jail,”
the sheriff said.
“The fact is, the building is built and those
of us that pay taxes are still paying for it. We
should have our own jail in Paulding County,
that’s my opinion as a tax payer and as the
sheriff. However, if the citizens disagree, I
can live with that. I simply want to find out
where people stand on this issue that has been
left idle for nearly six years.”
The sheriff will hold meetings the fol-
lowing dates and times:
• July 17 - Auglaize Fire 6 pm and Crane
Township Fire 7:30 pm.
• July 18 - Grover Hill Fire 6 pm and
Scott Fire 7:30 pm.
• July 21 - Paulding Fire 6 pm and
Antwerp Fire 7:30 pm.
• July 22 - Oakwood Fire 6 pm and
Payne Fire 7:30 pm.
“My purpose at the conclusion of these
meetings is simply to have a show of hands
on how many folks want to see an operat-
ing levy on the ballot and how many don’t.
I will then work with the commissioners to
see what direction we should take,” Lan-
ders said. “I hope to see a lot of voters
show up to raise their hand either way,
that’s why we are offering this eight
