– Join the Maumee Valley
Heritage Corridor and
ACRES Land Trust at the
Flat Rock Creek Nature
Preserve for a morning hike
at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 3.
The preserve is located at
8654 SR 500, halfway be-
tween Payne and Paulding.
The event is free, and
membership information for
both organizations will be
available. The theme will be
the Great Black Swamp as
challenge and opportunity.
Learn about the former
swamp, the few natural
streams that ran through it –
like the Flat Rock – and how
the land underwent great
change in the late 19th and
early 20th century as cutting
the forest and draining the
land with tiles and ditches led
to great productivity, and
great environmental impact.
The Great Black Swamp
once covered a large part of
northwest Ohio and the east-
ern half of Allen County,
Ind., until ditches and
drainage tiles were installed
in the late 19th century. Flat
Rock Creek Nature Preserve
is located within this region.

PAULDING – Paulding
Village Council addressed a
water quality issue, water
plant status and sewer project
concerns at its regular meet-
ing Monday, July 15.
Village administrator
Harry Wiebe presented coun-
cil with an administrator’s
agenda that included infor-
mation regarding a “Notice
of Violation – Action
Required” by the Ohio EPA.
The violation was present-
ed in a letter, dated July 9,
stating that for the first 16
days of June, the turbidity
(cloudiness) level of the
water being produced by the
water treatment plant failed
to meet the standards set by
the Ohio EPA and was in vio-
lation of EPA rule 3745-81-
73(A)(1). In layman’s terms,
the water being produced by
the water plant had too many
microscopic (not visible to
the naked eye) particles in it.

By JOE SHOUSE • Correspondent
Part 1 of 2
It’s hard to believe how the summer is quick-
ly disappearing and the start of school is just
around the corner. School supplies are in the
stores, and before you know it, the classroom
bell will ring sounding the first day of school.
For many teachers and school personnel, a
summer vacation is becoming extinct.
In small districts, teachers and secretaries
often wear more than one hat. They find them-
selves working throughout the summer to
make learning more exciting for their students
and their district even stronger when the new
school year begins.
With college classes to take, sports camps to
oversee, and the responsibility of extracurricu-
lar activities, many teachers spend their sum-
mers with little time off as they invest in the
overall program of their local school district.
Several of these hardworking people took a
few minutes to share some of their summer
plans; after hearing their schedule and learning
about how they dedicate so much of their sum-
mer back to the school and students, you can’t
help but appreciate their service and loyalty
given during the summer.
Amy Sorrell and her yearbook staff just
completed putting the final touches on the
Antwerp yearbook. Working feverishly
through the month of June, the process was
unique in that the staff did not use an outside
yearbook company. All the work was done in-
house, according to Sorrell.
“It was a chronological yearbook and there-
fore we had to use the month of June to com-
plete the May portion of the project.”
Sorrell, the high school language arts teacher
at Antwerp High School, stepped outside the
box and challenged her yearbook staff. This
year, Sorrell, along with four seniors, two jun-
iors and a sophomore, worked together to de-
velop, produce and self-publish the yearbook.
In her relationship with other schools in the
area, Sorrell believes Antwerp is the only
school in the area who attempted this type of
“I have talked to several friends of mine in
other school districts and they are anxious to
hear from me on how this worked out.”
This is the first year Antwerp has self-pub-
lished their year book.
“It was a lot of work and since it was done in
chronological order, we would focus on school
events one week at a time and then each week
we would edit and proofread our work,” said
The in-house project allowed the students to
be more engaged in the process.
“By doing this in house we were able to
spend less time selling ads for the book and at
the same time lowering the cost of the year-
book. I believe we were able to save thousands
of dollars,” said Sorrell.
In addition to the high school year book, a
smaller, 24-page elementary yearbook will be

WHEAT HARVEST UNDER WAY - Farmers around Paulding County
breathed a sigh of relief as field conditions improved to a point where wheat
harvest could finally begin late last week. Although fields appeared ready for
harvest, rains kept heavy equipment off soaked soils until Friday or Saturday
in many areas. Although the official rainfall at the Paulding Water Plant for
the month was 1.68 inches as of July 15, spotty downpours through the pe-
riod provided much more than that in certain regions around the county.
Here, wheat was taken off Monday afternoon in Emerald Township along
Road 123. The combine is operated by Straley & Son Farms, Paulding.

Never seen before in North
America, a swine virus that is
deadly to young pigs has been
reported in 13 states. A total of
199 farms so far have seen the
results of this Porcine
Epidemic Diarrhea virus
Iowa, the largest U.S. hog
producer, has reported 102
sites as of June 10. This state
raises on the average 30 mil-
lion hogs each year, according
to the Iowa Pork Producers
PEDV, most often fatal to
very young pigs, causes diar-
rhea, vomiting and dehydra-
tion. It also sickens older hogs,
though their survival rate tends
to be high. The virus does not
pose a health risk to humans or
other animals. Meat from
PEDV-infected hogs is safe for
people to eat, according to fed-
eral officials and livestock
But the virus, which is
spreading rapidly across the
United States, is proving hard-
er to control than previously
believed. In addition to Iowa,
there has been the states of
Oklahoma, Minnesota,
Indiana, Arkansas, Colorado,
Kansas, Illinois, Michigan,
Missouri, Pennsylvania, South
Dakota and Ohio which have
reported and confirmed the
Investigators and swine vet-
erinarians working with the
U.S. Agriculture Department
are trying to determine how the
virus is spreading from farm to
farm and from state to state.
Focus is on the nation’s live-
stock transportation system.
PEDV is spread most com-
monly by pigs ingesting con-
taminated feces. Truck trailers
marred with contaminated
feces or a person wearing dirty
boots or with dirty nails are
prime suspects.
The strain of the PEDV
virus is making its way across
the nation’s hog farms and
slaughter houses is 99.4% sim-
ilar in genetic structure to the
PEDV that hit China’s herds
last year, according to the U.S.
researchers. But there is no di-
rect connection found between
the U.S. outbreak and previ-
ously identified outbreaks in
Asia and Europe say scientists
and researchers.
Keep a close eye on swine
activity on your farm and re-
port any unusual mortality
counts to OSU Extension.
According to the EPA let-
ter, “Turbidity has no health
effects so you were not ad-
vised to take any action.”
The good news is that the
high turbidity levels from the
first 16 days of June were
from water produced by the
old water treatment plant.
The new water treatment
plant went on line on June 17;
according to an Ohio EPA re-
port, the turbidity was no
longer an issue as it immedi-
ately was within the allowed
Wiebe commented, “This
is a timely event that demon-
strates the new water plant’s
There was some discussion
concerning the cause of tur-
bidly. Wiebe advised council
that the algae in the Paulding
Reservoir was the main cause
as it blooms during the warm
weather of late spring and
summer then dies, leaving
small pieces in the water.
Wiebe told council that
they started using a substance
called peroxygen to help con-
trol the algae in the reservoir
earlier in the season, and it
has helped, but is not com-
pletely controlling algae
Wiebe scheduled a com-
mittee of the whole meeting
for July 23 to discuss the
sewer separation project.
Councilwoman Barb Rife in-
quired if the engineers would
be present and Wiebe assured
they would be in attendance.
It was remarked that there
are some citizen concerns
about repaving the streets that
are being torn up for the
sewer system installation. It
was noted by several council
members and the mayor that
the sewer project only pro-
vides for repaving repair of
trenched areas, or as stated by
Council President Roger
Sierer, “The only areas that
will be repaved as part of the
sewer project will be the
areas cut out to make the in-
Councilman Randy Daeger
noted that this issue was dis-
cussed at a public meeting
prior to starting this project
and it was also noted that
there were no concerned citi-
zens at this public meeting.
Council heard the first
reading of Resolution No.
1282-13 authorizing a coop-
erative fishing agreement

pended the rules, declared an

As of last count, 160 high

Now with the yearbook
project completed, Sorrell is
focusing on spending the bal-
ance of her summer working
on developing a blended
learning class for her AP
(Advanced Placement)
English/language students.
“We received a grant that
will enable us to develop on-
line content for students to do
on their own in order to pre-
pare them for class activities
the following day.”
Sorrell is in her fourth year
teaching at Antwerp and prior
to her Antwerp position she
taught 10 years in Indiana.
She is married to Jonathan,
who works in the IT depart-
ment at the University of
Saint Francis. The Sorrells
have three children, Atticus, a
recent Antwerp grad who will
be attending U of SF in the
fall, seventh grader Iris, and
2-year-old Aleta.
Originally from Haviland,
Dan Lehman took to the sea
and then the long road before
landing in Antwerp, where he
has taught since 2001. A
teacher in the social studies
department at Antwerp High
School, Dan teaches criminal
justice, AP psychology, histo-
ry and government.
This summer, Lehman has
attended seminars and day
courses at Bowling Green
State University. “I do all this
by choice. But I know it will
make me a better teacher.”
Lehman, who lives in
Antwerp with his wife Laurel
and their two children,
Alexandra and Danica, is also
taking a geography class at
Defiance. “It’s all part of the
recertification that requires
additional hours of course
If he has any spare time,
Dan usually finds himself
modifying lesson plans to
meet the current state man-
“The state is always mak-
ing changes to the common
course standards and so I find
myself changing lesson plans
for American history and gov-
ernment... I also have been re-
doing my Advanced
Placement Psychology course
plans for the upcoming year.”
Upon graduating from
Wayne Trace, Lehman attend-
ed Defiance College and then
joined the Navy for six years,
where he spent the biggest
part of his time on a subma-
rine. After teaching a year in
the Baltimore City, Md. dis-
trict, Lehman managed to
land a position at Antwerp.
After his teaching career
kicked into gear, he then at-
tended Bowling Green for
three summers to attain his
masters in administration.
Antwerp is a great school,
according to Lehman.
“I love every minute of it.
There is a great relationship
between staff and administra-
tion. The school does an ex-
cellent job getting informa-
tion out to the teachers con-
cerning professional develop-
ment seminars. And whatever
I can do to make myself a bet-
ter teacher for my students is
important to me.”

Legislation tops Antwerp Council meeting agenda
ANTWERP – Several resolutions
and ordinances dominated the
monthly meeting of the Antwerp
Village Council on Monday
Three ordinances were repealed
allowing three updated ordinances
to replace the older ones. The three
ordinances being repealed were:
• providing for the demolition of
unsafe or insecure buildings located
within the village.
• establishing regulations of
weeds within the village.
• regulations of litter and/or junk
motor vehicles on private property
in the village.
Because there were several addi-
tions made to the older ordinances
over the course of time, council de-
cided to repeal the ordinances and
start over with new ones that would
spell out more clearly the new ordi-
nances. After suspending the rules,
council unanimously accepted the
three new ordinances to include:
• Regulations of weeds and litter
on private property in the village.
• Regulating the removal or
cover of junk motor vehicles in the
• Provision for the demolition of
insecure and unsafe buildings locat-
ed in the village.

River Street from single family to
multiple family.
• Rezoning lots adjacent to North
Main Street from multiple family to
• Rezone a lot (The Depot) adja-
cent to West River Street from agri-
cultural to business.
Third readings were presented in-
• a resolution involving a 2-mill
renewal levy for the police depart-
• an ordinance that provides for
the prompt repair or removal of
structures damaged by fire within
the village.
First reading for three ordinances:
• Consenting to the termination
of the Paulding County Emergency
Management Agency agreement.
• For the Village of Antwerp to
participate in a program for emer-
gency management for Paulding
County as organized by the
Paulding County Board of Com mis -
• The adoption of revisions to the
personnel manual for the Village to
include a confidentiality statement.
Police Chief George Clemens re-
ported 122 calls for service were
made in June in addition to eight of-
Clemens also reported the motor
in the police car was replaced at a
cost of $7,217.06. Due to the
amount of the expenditure, a motion
was made and unanimously passed
to pay the repair cost.
The June financial report for
Mayor’s Court was given by Mayor
Tom VanVlerah. A total of $1,255
was received with $337.50 going to

The Amish Cook
By: Lovina Eicher
fish fry at Timothy’s house.
Timothy and Elizabeth
cooked supper outdoors. Was
very enjoyable to relax and
not have to cook.
Elizabeth and Loretta went
to clean Timothy’s house on
Saturday. I told Elizabeth
bring his laundry here to
wash on Monday.
She brought his curtains,
extra bedding, etc to wash as
well. Using our spinner, our
laundry and his dried really
fast on the lines. With Timo-
thy working long hours it’s
hard for him to keep up with
the housework all the time.
Last week we made quite a
few batches of strawberry
freezer jam. My rhubarbs are
looking very nice since the
rains, so I want to make one
more batch of juice.
We are enjoying red pota-
toes, peas, green peppers and
hot peppers from the garden.
Have small zucchinis almost
ready to pick. Red beets are
ready to use, but am leaving
them get bigger to pack pickled
beets. Tomato plants are loaded
with tomatoes and corn is look-
ing nice again.
Our sweet onions are getting
very big and doing extra well.
The cooking onions I store
over the winter are doing great
as well. Meal planning is so
much easier with the garden
goodies. Joe planted another
patch of sweet corn yesterday
for later use.
Son Kevin, 7, does not get
along with our rooster. He
usually gathers the eggs and
has had a few surprises from
behind from that rooster.
It is July 3 and 2013 is half
over already. We have been
having lots of rain. Last week
we had a total of 8 inches.
Some report more, some less.
All is still quiet around the
house this morning, so I de-
cided to get up earlier than
the rest to write this column.
With this being vacation
week for my husband, Joe,
and daughter, Elizabeth, we
have been sleeping in longer.
Bedtime is also later with
not having to set an alarm.
Such nice family time to-
gether and memories made.
Sunday evening we took
supper to Jacob and Emma’s
house. We then went to see
how their daughter Elizabeth
is faring since her surgery on
Thursday. She is doing as
well as can be expected.
The men and boys played
croquet while the rest of us
visited. The eight-player cro-
quet set was a Father’s Day
gift to Joe and has been
played many times since.
Corn de-tasseling should
be starting any day. Daugh-
ters Susan and Verena went to
help rogue the corn on Satur-
day. If I understand correctly
“to rogue” the corn is to take
out the tall unwanted corn-
stalks out of the cornfields.
This is done before the corn
is de-tasseled.
The fields were over a mile
long and each person takes 12
rows at a time. After all this
rain it made for some tough
walking. Their shoes were
caked with mud when they
came home.
On Friday we enjoyed a
We also have a hen with a
bad attitude. Daughter Susan
came out to the barn and
heard this hen really squawk-
ing. She could not keep from
laughing when she seen
Kevin and the hen face to
face and the hen’s feathers
were all raised. Kevin had an
egg aimed to throw at the hen
for his protection.
Kevin keeps us all laughing.
He wanted to help me mix
Loretta’s birthday cake, but
after cracking the first egg too
hard, it fell on the counter-top.
He did manage to get the others
in the bowl. We made the cake
while Loretta was outside sit-
ting on the swing. We hid it
until supper time, so Loretta
could be surprised. God’s

Citizens, library
help make
birthday special
Dear Editor,
On May 16, Holocaust sur-
vivor William Meyer from
Geneva, Ind., spoke at the
Paulding County Extension
building. This program was
part of the Paulding County
Carnegie Library’s Centennial
Celebration. Over 400 people
came to listen to William’s
moving story. William turned
82 on July 4 and the library
hosted a card shower for him.
The library staff sent birthday
cards along with those
brought in by others. I spoke
to William recently and he
was overwhelmed by the
thoughts and well wishes sent
to him. William lost his wife
to cancer last fall and the
cards really meant a lot to
William was just released
from the hospital after suffer-
ing a stroke. Although his
speech was not affected, he is
having a little difficulty get-
ting around. If he is well
enough, he is planning on re-
turning to Paulding on Aug.
13 to share the second part of
his story.
I would like to thank the
citizens of Paulding County
for helping make William’s
day special. Please continue to
keep him in your thoughts and
prayers for continued
strength. William is looking
forward to coming back and
sharing with all of us again in

Paulding County Carnegie Li-
Community lends
a hand for
summer reading
Dear Editor,
Our “Dig Into Reading”
summer reading program at
the Cooper Community
Branch of the Paulding
County Carnegie Library is
over. It was a fun summer
with 55 children enrolled in
the programs. We were so
blessed to have Nila Clemen-
son and Karen Jacobs, Master
Gardeners, tell us all about
fairy gardens and each child
was able to create their own
fairy garden to take home
with them.
Mark Holtsberry, from
Paulding Soil and Water Con-
servation District, came and
talked to us about soil erosion
and had a fantastic experiment
to let us participate in. Fol-
lowing his presentation, we
made edible dirt using choco-
late chips, pudding, crushed
Oreos, gummy worms, and
coconut to represent the dif-
ferent layers of the earth. That
was a fun day!
The following week a very
special guest joined us. Kourt-
ney Thomas brought her pet
hedgehog and told us some
interesting facts about hedge-
hogs. He was just adorable!
Connie Zachrich led us on a
book archeology dig. What a
fun time! Then our Fairy Tale
Book Club presented the
“Bremen Town Musicians”
puppet skit. They did an ex-
cellent job!
For our final day of the
summer reading program, we
had a “Touch a Truck and
Such” and a grilled sack lunch
in the park prepared by Jen-
nifer White, Suzanne Cooper
and Warren Thomas. REAL
Waste Disposal LLC, Oak-
wood Fire Department, Oak-
wood EMS, Auglaize Canoe

It just amazes me the won-
derful people and businesses
we have in our small village
and within the county who are
always willing to lend a hand
to our local branch of the pub-
lic library. The children in our
little village had a fun four
weeks and they totally en-
joyed themselves. The most
important thing is with every-
one’s help we kept the chil-
dren excited about reading
and learning new things.
What wonderful memories
this entire team along with the
parents, caregivers, and
grandparents who faithfully
brought the children to the
programs made for these very
special young people! As one
child stated, “This was the
best summer!”

‘Many dogs
were put down’
Dear Editor,
On April 24, 2013 I submit-
ted a letter to the editor to the
newspapers reporting no dogs
were euthanized at the Pauld-
ing County Dog Shelter since
August 2012. I recently found
out the information I was
given was not correct, and
many dogs were put down. It
is with a heavy heart I apolo-
gize to the citizens of Pauld-
ing County for reporting this
information. The revealing in-
voice to the dog warden’s of-
fice is freely available at the
Lynne Mansfield
Editor’s note: The following
is a response from former dog
warden Georgia Dyson re-
garding the above letter to the
editor from Lynne Mansfield.
Former dog
warden responds
Dear Editor,
The invoice Lynne is refer-
ring to only shows the date the
dogs were picked up for cre-
mation. The amount of dogs
picked up for cremation
doesn’t tell you which dogs
were euthanized and which
ones were a courtesy crema-
tion. For example, several dogs
were picked up as a courtesy
because they passed away dur-
ing a tragic house fire in
Antwerp. You will have to go
to the shelter and request a
copy of the euthanasias. The
drugs used for euthanasia must
be accounted for, records must
be kept showing what it was
used for (dog, cat, etc.) and
how much was used and when
it was used. This information is
kept at the shelter.

Spend your money
in Paulding County
Every single one of us like to get a bargain and some people
will drive miles to save a few cents. Recently, I have noticed that
gas prices vary, sometimes being cheaper in a bigger city. How-
ever, do you want to drive 30 miles to save 2 cents on a gallon of
Price is a major factor in
where and when people shop.
In economically hard times,
we all gravitate to the best
bargains, even if it means
going out of the county or out
of the state to buy something.
Years ago our downtown
streets were part of a
bustling, thriving community. It was more difficult to travel out of
town, so merchandise and supplies were purchased locally. There-
fore, the small grocery stores, dress stores, hardware stores, hat
shops and many more businesses were flourishing in those earlier
It has been sad to see so many of the local businesses fall by the
wayside as huge department stores come in, offering big dis-
counts, advertising more, providing more of a variety and attract-
ing younger buyers. Studies have proven that when a big store
comes into a city nearby that approximately 84 percent of their
sales are shifted from small businesses.
It’s time to consider the real costs to a community that loses its
local business base. Independent local businesses employ a wide
array of supporting services. They hire architects, designers, cabi-
net shops, sign makers and contractors for construction.
Opportunities grow for local accountants, insurance brokers,
computer consultants, attorneys, advertising agencies and others
to help run it. Local retailers and distributors also carry a higher
percentage of locally made goods than the chains, creating more
jobs for local producers.
Are you looking for a big ticket item such as a new car or big
screen TV? Why not look at a local Paulding County business
and support the economics right here at home? Every dollar spent
locally goes to support vital public services to our town and vil-
Our community is unique and any one-of-a-kind business is an
integral part of our town. Local ownership ensures that important
decisions are made locally by the people who live in the commu-
nity and who will feel the impacts of major decisions.
Another benefit is that when you shop locally, you can get to
know your local merchants. They will know you as well and cater
to your preferences. I love going into a store and a clerk know me
by my first name. It makes me feel special and I know that the
merchant is taking care of me.
Another thing, local merchants care about and invest in our
community. They not only donate part of our dollars back to local
groups and charities, the local purchases support local jobs. When
you shop at one local merchant, you’re supporting a whole host of
other businesses such as banks, restaurants and other businesses
clustered around our local shops.
Local shops are more accessible for everyone. This is espe-
cially important for elderly, vulnerable and young people and
those without transportation.
Our purchases help the town attract new entrepreneurs and
skilled workers. Towns that preserve their one-of-a-kind busi-
nesses and distinctive character are more successful in recruiting
other businesses and residents.
County leaders, village leaders, village residents and county
residents – take the time and effort to shop and buy locally. Pay
attention to this county’s car dealerships, hardware stores, jewelry
stores, furniture stores, groceries and restaurants. Why would you
want to spend your money anywhere else?

depends on strong job creation
During the course of my 16 years as Paulding
County Commissioner, I had the opportunity to
work on several budgets. No matter the level of
government, the budget is important for the obvi-
ous reason that it sets the priori-
ties for the coming couple of
Understanding that the state
operating budget is a bigger ani-
mal to address than county
budgets, I was just as eager to
learn from my colleagues as I
was ready to share my thoughts
and opinions.
I believe the finished product
is something that will continue
our state on the upward trajec-
tory that it has been on over the
course of the past two years.
Since the time the previous
budget was signed into law in
2011, Ohioans have created more than 170,000
private sector jobs and wages in Ohio are growing
faster than the national average. That budget
closed an $8 billion budget shortfall without rais-
ing taxes, and in fact even eliminated the estate
(or “death”) tax.
This budget also featured considerable reduc-
tions in the income tax for both small businesses
and individuals. Ohio residents will see a $2.7 bil-
lion net tax reduction over the next three years.
Keeping more money in the productive sector of
the economy is good for Ohio businesses and con-
A lot has been said about the slight increase in
state sales tax, which equals only an additional
$2.50 on every $1,000 of spending. I have long
been a proponent of moving towards a tax system
based on consumption and away from income be-
cause it gives people more authority over how
much tax they pay. Whereas the income tax is as-
sessed relative to the amount of work a person
does, sales tax is only assessed
on how much they spend.
Thanks to more jobs being
created and, thus, more people
paying taxes, the budget also
provides additional funding for
education. Every school district
in Ohio will receive at least as
much as they did last year, and
80 percent of students attend
schools that receive more fund-
Additionally, students receiv-
ing career-technical education
will receive greater support. Ed-
ucational programs that train
high school students for future
career opportunities experience a boost in funding.
There are jobs available in the technical and man-
ufacturing industries, and therefore it is critical
that we as a state support workforce development
efforts that will help to ensure that those jobs are
filled by Ohioans, particularly young people.
This year’s budget process is another clear ex-
ample that everything we want to accomplish as
a state is possible only when people are working
and the economy is improving. Ohio is headed in
the right direction, and this budget puts in place
more policies and priorities that will continue its

A Penny For
Your Thoughts....
By: Nancy Whitaker
I love to think back to a
time when life was slower
paced, families ate dinner to-
gether, kids played outside till
the street lights came on and
the biggest event around was
the county fair.
Then I wonder, “Do I really
want to go back to those days
of no computers, no cell
phones, no McDonald’s or no
television? Is life worse now
than what it ever was? Or do
we just have easier access to
In this modern world, we
can see plane crashes as they
occur and go directly to
scenes of people getting
robbed, murdered and raped.
We can see and hear the gov-
ernment leaders warring over
politics and can see a war as
it breaks out.
Years ago, I recall having
an old radio that we would sit
around and listen to church
music or perhaps “The Grand
Old Opry.” If we did hear any
news, it was generally gotten
by Grandma listening in on
our party line to other neigh-
bors talking.
Sometimes, I wonder if we
are better off not hearing all
the bad news and just focus-
ING on simpler things.
Today’s family life can be
stressful and we get way too
busy to get that special “fam-
ily time.” Everyone is coming
and going different places.
So which lifestyle is best?
The slow paced life or life in
the busy, fast lane?
A story comes to mind
about two mice. A country
mouse invited his cousin who
lived in the city to come visit
him. The city mouse was so
disappointed with the sparse
meal which was nothing
more than a few kernels of
corn and a couple of dried
“My poor cousin,” said the
city mouse, “you hardly have
anything to eat! I do believe
that an ant could eat better!
Please do come to the city and
visit me, and I will show you
such rich feasts, readily avail-
able for the taking.”
So the country mouse left
with his city cousin who
brought him to a splendid feast
in the city’s alley. The country
mouse could not believe his
eyes. He had never seen so
much food in one place. There
was bread, cheese, fruit, cere-
als, and grains of all sorts scat-
tered about in a warm cozy
portion of the alley.
The two mice settled down
to eat their wonderful dinner,
but before they barely took
their first bites, a cat ap-
proached their dining area.
The two mice scampered
away and hid in a small un-
comfortable hole until the cat
Finally, it was quiet, and
the unwelcome visitor went
to prowl somewhere else. The
two mice ventured out of the
hole and resumed their abun-
dant feast. Before they could
get a proper taste in their
mouth, another visitor in-
truded on their dinner, and the
two little mice had to scuttle
away quickly.
“Goodbye,” said the coun-
try mouse, “You do, indeed,
live in a plentiful city, but I
am going home where I can
enjoy my dinner in peace.”
This story shows the lifestyle
of two different mice and their
preferences. One mouse did
not mind the interruptions
when he was eating, his boun-
tiful meal, but the other mouse
preferred what little he did eat
to eat it in peace and quiet.
I love computers, cell
phones and McDonald’s. The
busy lifestyles have replaced
an era of simpler times.
Do you remember when
times were quieter and days
was more relaxed? Do you
think that the information
highway we are on is good?

Another successful fair is in the books. And
what a fair it was. I want to thank the fair
board for a job well done. Their work is never
ending, as preparation is year round.
Another group to recognize, for their
efforts at the fair, is Friends of the Fair-
Livestock Building Committee. This
committee was instrumental
in the initial planning of the
new building project, as
well as, seeing the project
through completion. The
project was introduced during fair week.
The building project consists of removing
the existing hog, goat and poultry barn at the
west end of the fairground. Three new live-
stock barns will be constructed in the same
area. The projected cost is estimated at
$250,000. The projected completion date is
fair of 2015.
While $250,000 is a substantial sum, to
date, the fund balance is $73,000. An anony-
mous donor has offered to match up to
$100,000 of the fund, after the fund has
reached $100,000. Along with the anonymous
donor, a group of individuals pledged over
$15,000 the day of the livestock sale. Numer-
ous 4-H and FFA livestock exhibitors donated
a portion of their project to the fund, as

by the end of the summer.
He also noted that the test-
ing laboratory moved to its
new location last week and
work has begun on the old lab
to expand the emergency de-
partment. The timeline for

pital Foundation had a golf
outing on July 10 with 20
teams participating. The af-
ternoon storms forced teams
to quit early, but it was men-
tioned that everyone seemed
to have a good time.
Chief Operating Officer
Randy Ruge reported that the
hospital is updating the nuclear
medicine department in Au-
gust. When the update is com-
plete, personnel will have
access to a Siemens Dual Head
eCam. This will result in tests
being performed twice as fast
as before. This is the same
equipment used at Parkview
and Lutheran hospitals.
Ruge also reported that the
new MRI unit will be on site
starting Dec 1. This unit is an
open bore unit which has a 70
cm opening, while an open
MRI unit has an opening of 45
cm. This new unit will also
have a stronger Tesla magnet
compared to an open MRI,
which means better quality im-
ages and faster scan times.
Ruge announced that home
sleep studies can now be done.

4-H camp was
‘Out of This World’
A total of 155 4-H campers, Cloverbuds and counselors from Paulding County attended the annual 4-H Camp Palmer in July.
The Paulding Progress traveled to 4-H Camp Palmer with the senior counselors. Zach Proctor, Maggie Wilhelm, Jared Eklund,
Emma Schmidt and Jake Roop had a great time.
The 2013 Paulding County
4-H Camp, “Out of This
World” has successfully
come to a close. A record-
breaking 105 campers and 24
Cloverbuds, led by 26 coun-
selors, got to experience
many great events that will be
in their memories for a long
From high-ropes to creek
seining, from line dancing to
outdoor cooking, from the
archery range to the flying
squirrel, the campers lived
the magic of 4-H Camp
The Cloverbuds’ day was
filled with great excitement
as well. They got to make
crafts, learn dances, and par-
ticipate in the camp-wide
water carnival.
Meeting new people and
gaining new friends was the
best thing that occurred all
week long. By the end of
camp, it became quite clear
how amazing these friend-
ships were. These bonds of
friendship, forged through
teambuilding, skits, and
group-living, have been made
Many campers were sad to
leave camp, and their coun-
selors were not ready to let
them go. The only good part
of leaving camp is knowing
that everyone can come back
next year.
The dates of 2014 4-H
Camp are set – July 9-13.
There is less than a year until
everybody can meet again –
dream of camp and keep in
touch with all of the great
friends until then.
Mercy Defiance Clinic switching
to electronic medical records
Physicians and staff at Mercy Defiance Clinic and Mercy
Napoleon Clinic are scheduled to make a major advance in pa-
tient-centered healthcare when they implement CarePATH, an
electronic medical record system, on July 21.
“Healthcare is moving to a more team-centered approach to pa-
tient care in which timely sharing of information is essential. The
electronic medical record will allow healthcare team members,
including the patient, easy access to the most up-to-date informa-
tion on the patient’s condition and treatment,” said Chad L. Peter,
president and CEO of the Mercy Western Region, a part of
Catholic Health Partners (CHP).
In addition, patients will have their own secure electronic access
to portions of their medical record online via MyChart. Those who
sign up for MyChart will be able to use it to request an appoint-
ment or a prescription refill, view test results, and send messages
to their providers’ offices.
Sign-up information for MyChart will be available to patients
at Mercy Defiance Clinic starting on July 21.
Additional changes will be associated with the transition to
CarePATH. Patients will schedule appointments with all Mercy
Defiance Clinic and Mercy Napoleon Clinic providers through a
new, centralized pre-service center that can be reached by calling
the main clinic numbers, 419-784-1414 and 800-925-4642. Pa-
tients will then receive a reminder telephone call about their ap-
pointments via a new, automated system.

The Paulding County Bookmobile paid a special visit to Grover Hill Elementary before summer break. The theme for the event
was “It’s summertime - Read One More Line.”  The students each took a tour of the bookmobile where the ladies on board
explained the process of choosing books and how the bookmobile actually serves its customers. After the tour the students vis-
ited the courtyard for a frozen treat and they could choose a free book. Shown is teacher Mike Bok and some fifth grade stu-
dents after their tour. The students at Grover Hill work on AR points during the year and this was an event to encourage them
to read even more over the summer.
Oakwood second graders are shown performing for community members of Oakwood for the

Payne Elementary sponsored “Hats for Chase” day for Spirit and Pride Friday. Students were
asked to donate a quarter to a dollar to wear a hat for the day. All proceeds were given to to the
family of our KB student, Chase, who was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 2. He recently
underwent surgery and is recovering.  The money will help the family with medical and travel
expenses. Grover Hill Elementary also had a “Hats for Chase” day to help with the collection. The
total for both elementary buildings was over $700. Payne Elementary KB class wore orange that
day in honor of Chase because that is his favorite color.
The Physics students at Wayne Trace wrapped up the year with a catapult and trebuchet project
to apply their classroom experiences to a simple engineering concept.  They were directed to build
either a catapult or trebuchet that could successfully launch a softball as far as possible. They were
given limitations on the allowable size and weight for the apparatus which made the project a little
more challenging.  The teams of students were allowed only five trials and were able to make adjust-
ments to the device between launches if they chose to do so.  
Children enrolled in the Paulding County Help Me Grow and
Early Intervention programs enjoying a break from their day at

What’s blooming now?
If someone were to ask you
what’s blooming in your gar-
den right now, you might say
Rose of Sharon, daylilies,
roses, and any number of an-
nuals such as petunias,
marigolds, begonias, or Cos-
But what about God’s gar-
In the glorious weather
we’ve had for the past week,
my husband and I have been
taking walks down our road
and we’ve noticed a large
number of native wildflowers
in bloom along the roadside
and in a field that’s been al-
lowed to lie fallow.
Of course, not planting a
field with corn, beans or
wheat doesn’t mean it doesn’t
produce. It has plenty of
weeds as you might expect,
but scattered amongst the
weeds you may find beautiful
flowers. Though hybridizers
have taken some of these and
refined them, many are suit-
able for backyard gardens in
their native form.
Some wildflowers do have
reputations for being rangy,
aggressive and having a gen-
eral unkempt look that many
consider unsuitable for home
gardens. Several of them
have been the source of hy-
bridization to refine them or
to provide more colors,
smaller plants, and other de-
sirable characteristics.
Take coneflowers, for in-
stance. In recent years, there’s
been a deluge of new culti-
vated varieties (cultivars) –
‘Coral Reef’, ‘Cranberry
Cupcake’, and ‘Gumdrop’, just
to name a few. They come in
uncommon colors, flower
forms, and dwarf sizes. But the
straight species of Echinacea
purpurea actually grows well
and looks beautiful in any style
You can also find the charm-
ing yellow bird’s foot trefoil
adorning the edges of rural
roads right now. Lotus cornic-
ulatus grows in mounding
clumps close to the ground and
is actually not an Ohio native.
It was introduced by Euro-
peans when they came to the
U.S. and because of its nature,
it can be somewhat of a thug in
the home garden, although I’ve
never found it to be particularly
aggressive in our heavy clay.
Plains coreopsis (Coreopsis
tinctoria) can be seen bloom-
ing now. This is a taller (can
grow as high as four feet),
airier, golden yellow flower
with a burgundy eye. It’s ac-
tually an annual, but it’s one
of those that behaves like a
perennial, due to self-seeding.
To many, Queen Anne’s
lace (also known as wild car-
rot) is a weed, but to others,
it’s a beautiful addition to the
garden. It’s certainly common
in northwest Ohio and is in
full bloom now, everywhere
you look.
There are other wildflow-
ers that resemble Daucus
carota, but one sign of true
Queen Anne’s lace is the deep
purple florets that are often
(not always) found at the cen-
ter of the umbel of white
blooms. Legend has it that
Queen Anne pricked her fin-
ger while making lace and the
purple florets represent her
drops of blood. Look closely
at the blooms and you may
see the tiny spot of purple.
Brown-eyed Susans (Rud-
beckia triloba) are a much-
loved flower by many and are
often called black-eyed Su-
sans, but that’s actually a dif-
ferent flower (Rudbeckia
hirta), which we also have.
Both are blooming now, and
they can be differentiated
from each other by compar-
ing their size and the centers
of their blooms.
Black-eyed Susan flowers
are larger in diameter than
their brown-eyed cousins and
they also have a smoother
center. In reality, both plants
go by both names and it’s
splitting hairs to worry about
which one is called what, be-
cause the common names are
used interchangeably for two
very similar flowers.
In my own garden, the true
brown-eyed Susans keep us
on our toes, due to their self-
seeding habit. We love them
for their color, robustness,
and resistance to disease and
pests, but I know that I’m
going to be pulling seedlings
pretty much all summer long,
all over the garden, unless I
keep up with deadheading the
spent blooms before they go
to seed.
Other wildflowers currently
blooming include orange ditch
lilies (Hemerocallis fulva), blue
chicory (Cichorium intybus)
and the less common Michigan
lilies (Lilium michiganense).
All of these Ohio wildflow-
ers are butterfly and pollina-
tor magnets. Just because you
can find them growing along
roadsides and in ditches or
overgrown fields doesn’t
mean they’re not worthy of a
spot in your garden.

Along our roadsides and in our fields, Plains coreopsis (Coreopsis tinctoria) is one of the wild-
flowers that can be seen blooming now.
