This year’s Gem of Antwerp is Dr. William Bricker. The award was announced by Nancy
Lichty, Gem chairperson, and Michelle Dooley, Antwerp Chamber president.
Annual YFC auction
offers unique items
ANTWERP – Dr. William Bricker has been
announced the recipient of the 2013 Gem of
Antwerp award presented by the Antwerp
Chamber of Commerce.
The award is given annually in conjunction
with the “Day In the Park” event to a person
who has given exemplary service to the
Antwerp community.
Bricker, a native of Hicksville, opened his
office in Antwerp in the fall of 1964 after grad-
uating from Ohio State University in dentistry.
His dedicated service of quality dentistry
and his generosity is appreciated by all. He re-
tired in 2012 and sold his practice to Dr. Sarah
Mowery.
He has always been particularly helpful to
the youth of the community with many dona-
tions. He has been a great supporter of the Boy
Scouts, Antwerp School, and Rotary
International in particular.
He was the charter president of the Antwerp
Rotary organized in 1972 and has hosted sev-
eral foreign exchange students. Dr. Bricker’s
hobby is that of a worldwide big game hunter.
He has toured thousands of people through his
home in Antwerp, where people are awed by
his many wildlife trophies.
Dr. Bricker came from humble beginnings
with his father passing away when he was be-
tween his sixth and seventh grades of school.
He credited Ronnie Tomlinson as an early
mentor and Carma J. Rowe loaned him the
funds to attend college and get his degree. He
understands the value that a person can have to
help and encourage a young person and he re-
turned that practice to all the youths he came in
contact with.
When asked what he liked best about
Antwerp, Dr. Bricker said, “The people.”
Come and say hello to him Saturday, Aug.
10 at Antwerp’s Day In the Park. The parade
starts at 10 a.m. and the festivities last until 5
p.m. at the Veterans Riverside Park, east of
Antwerp.

PAULDING – The Paul -
ding County Board of
Develop mental Disabilities
(DD) recently met and
passed a resolution closing
the school age program at
the PARC Lane Training
Center prior to the 2013-14
school year.
Due to more specialized
interventions within the
county schools and new
state referral programs, the
remaining two students will
return to their home school
district and receive services
based upon their needs.
The home district school
staff and PARC Lane staff
already have held collabora-
tive meetings with the two
families to ensure each stu-
dents’ continued success.
Lisa Recker, superintend-
ent of the PARC Lane
Training Center, said, “I am
very thankful to our board
who made a financially
sound decision and at the
same time retained our aide,
Darla Smith.”
The PARC Lane Training
Center has been the home of
early intervention classes for
several years and offers spe-
cialized services from the
age of infancy through age
3. The program works with
families, physicians and the
Help Me Grow program for
referrals.
Recker said, “The early
intervention program is
flourishing. There are ap-
proximately 40 students
using our services. We offer
physical, occupational and
speech therapy.
“Our staff also goes into
the homes and works direct-
ly with the parents and chil-
dren.”
Another new program the
PCDD is now involved with
is Bridges to Transitions.
This is a Vocational
Rehabilitation Public Private
Partnership (VRP3), a grant
funded by County Boards of
Developmental Disabilities
and the Ohio Rehabilitation
Services Commission
(RSC).
The goal of Bridges is to
expand career exploration
and employment options for
youths with developmental
disabilities. The Ohio
Association of County
Boards is providing state -
wide project management
and support for the program.
This partnership began in
2009 and focuses on transi-
tion youths, ages 14 to 22,
who are eligible for County
Board DD services and RSC
services. County Boards of
Developmental Disabilities
contribute local dollars and
RSC matches those dollars
with federal funds.

ANTWERP – The Antwerp
Chamber of Commerce has
created a new award for indi-
viduals who have made a
major contribution to the
Chamber and betterment of
Antwerp and who resides out-
side of the Antwerp commu-
nity.
The person(s) chosen for
this award will be recognized
in the same manner as the
Gem of Antwerp at the Day in
the Park event sponsored by
the Antwerp Chamber and
will be chosen solely by the
chamber board.
The “Friend of the
Chamber” first award recipi-
ents are Tom and Sharon
McLaughlin for their visible
efforts to achieve excellence
in community leadership and
growth furthering the
Antwerp Chamber of
Commerce’s belief that
“community is commitment.”
Tom McLaughlin III’s
grandfather was an architect
and designed many schools
including the former Antwerp
School on Archer Drive.
When the new school was
built on Harrmann Road, the
former complex was sched-
uled to be torn down accord-
ing to state rules.
Tom wanted to preserve the
building because of his grand-
father’s involvement and did
not want to see the building
be destroyed. After much
thought, he and his wife of 50
years, Sharon, came up with
the idea of an assisted living
home and restaurant. Tom
built the Antwerp Field
House in exchange for the old
school building and property.
Tom soon became very at-
tracted to the small town of
Antwerp and thoroughly en-
joyed the people. He enjoyed
fishing in Cabo, cooking and
visiting with friends.
Sadly, Tom became sick
and died in 2012. Sharon con-
tinues on working at the
Essen House Restaurant and
son Brian works at the assist-
ed living, now run by
Vancrest. The McLaughlins
have five children, Brian,
Mauca, Darrin, Tommie and
Caitlin.
The benefits of Tom and
Sharon McLaughlin investing
and working in Antwerp are
enormous. Without them the
“old school” would have been
torn down. There would no
facility available to those who
would like to be taken care of
near their friends and family.
The entire campus facility has
become a community center
for young people as well.
With the restaurant, friends
and family can have a meal
with a loved one who is a res-
ident. The employment creat-
ed and the additional com-
merce created by the facility
is very significant for the
community.
The Essen House also hosts
the Rotary, chamber and
many organizations and fami-
ly gatherings.
Tom’s cheery face and
friendly demeanor are greatly
missed by his family and all
his Antwerp friends.
The Antwerp Chamber
wishes to thank Tom and
Sharon McLaughlin for all
that they have done for
Antwerp by bestowing the
“Friend of the Chamber”
award to them during the Day
in the Park, Aug. 10. Sharon
and son, Brian, will receive
the award and be happy to
visit with all those who would
like to say hello to them dur-
ing the parade and at the park.
Michelle Dooley, Antwerp Chamber of Commerce president, poses with Sharon McLaughlin and her son, Brian, along with
Nancy Lichty, chamber vice-president. Sharon and her late husband, Tom, are the recipients of the first Friend of the Chamber
award. It will be presented during Day In the Park observances on Aug. 10.

8 a.m. Breakfast is oatmeal
and coffee soup.
9 a.m. Joseph and I leave for
town.
Noon – We are back from
town after the groceries are put
away we make roll-ups for our
lunch
1 p.m. Verena is mopping
the floors. She says she can’t
relax to rest if she knows we
have work to do. Loretta is
cleaning the bathroom. I can 11
quarts of dill pickles. Earlier
this week I made 16 quarts of
freezer pickles.
I pack them in ice cream
buckets for the freezer. They
will be used for our next
church service. We also canned
14 quarts of green beans this
week. Next week looks like it
will be tomatoes to can.
2 p.m. Joe came home a few
minutes ago. Now, Susan and
Benjamin are home too. It’s
early for them to be home at
this time.
3:50 p.m. Elizabeth is
home from work. I am mak-
ing meatloaf to put in the
oven. Verena is making cup-
cakes as Joseph wants cup-
cakes instead of a cake. The
boys are doing chores. Joe is
picking cucumbers and toma-
toes in the garden.
5 p.m. Joseph’s friends
come and also nephews Jacob
Jr., Benjamin and Steven
come with their pony and
cart.
6:30 We all eat supper
which is mashed potatoes
gravy, meatloaf, green beans
cucumber salad, tomatoes,
cheese, ice cream, strawber-
ries, cupcakes and cereal
bars. We put 11 candles on
the cupcakes for Joseph to
blow out.
7:30 p.m. Joe and all the
3:15 a.m. The alarm goes
off. Time to start another day. I
pack my husband Joe’s lunch.
We close the windows that
were open during the night. It’s
50° and the house feels cold.
After all the hot weather last
week, this is a quite a differ-
ence. It makes for nice sleeping
weather.
3:45 a.m. Joe leaves for
work. I go back to bed.
4:50 a.m. I get up again.
Daughter Elizabeth is packing
her lunch.
5:15 a.m. Elizabeth leaves
for work. It’s difficult to be-
lieve next week she will have
worked there a year already.
5:30 a.m. Daughter Susan
and son Benjamin wake up.
Susan packs her lunch while I
help Benjamin with his. They
like meat and cheese roll-ups
instead of sandwiches for their
lunch. The bread gets soggy so
the roll-ups taste better.
We take a burrito shell, put
ranch dressing on it and then
either bologna or ham. Next we
put cheese on it and then roll
up. Some of us will add toma-
toes, green peppers, or lettuce
to ours. Son Kevin likes peanut
butter and jelly rollups.
6:15 a.m. Susan and Ben-
jamin leave for detasseling.
They wear coats this morning.
Usually they wear a poncho in
the mornings until the dew
dries off of the corn. Verena is
staying home. She hasn’t been
feeling well.
7 a.m. Time for the rest to
wake up. Joseph is wide
awake. He has looked forward
to this day for a long time. It’s
his 11th birthday and he is hav-
ing some school friends over
tonight. He does the morning
chores and fills the horses tank
with water.
boys go outside to play cro-
quet while the girls and I
clean away supper dishes.
8:30 p.m. Joseph’s friends
left for home. They all had a
nice time. Jacob, Benjamin
and Steven will stay for the
night and drive their pony
home tomorrow morning. For
those of you that do your own
canning, try this pickle relish
recipe:
PICKLE RELISH
1 gallon ground cucumbers
1 pint ground onions
1/2 cup salt
6 cups sugar
3 cups vinegar
1 cup water
3 teaspoons celery seed (op-
tional)

and onions and add salt and
mix well. Let set 3 hours then
drain well. Boil together
water, vinegar and sugar. Add
celery seed, dry mustard and
turmeric. Pour this over
drained pickles and onions.
Put in pint jars and cold pack.

A Penny For
Your Thoughts....
By: Nancy Whitaker
PASSING THE TEST
I don’t claim to be overly
smart, however, I do consider
myself average. However,
there are a lot of things I don’t
know and a lot of things I
don’t even care to know.
I did get fairly decent
grades in school and in col-
lege. I was not an all-A stu-
dent, but I usually came in
with at least a B.
Have I become smarter
through the years? Maybe not
smarter, but probably gained
a lot of experience. I have
raised four kids and worked
most of my life, so I like to
think I know a few things.
That is until, I took The
World’s Easiest Test. You
only have to get four answers
right to pass and I am sorry to
report, I got a big fat 0.
Trust me, unless you know
your trivia or have taken this
test before, I would really like
to know how many people
can pass it.
Following are the questions
to the World’s Easiest Quiz.
Are you ready?
World’s Easiest Test
1. How long did the Hun-
dred Years War last?
2. Which country makes
Panama hats?
3. From which animal do
we get catgut?
4. In which month do Rus-
sians celebrate the October
Revolution?
5. What is a camel’s hair
brush made of?
6. The Canary Islands in
the Atlantic are named after
what creature?
7. What was King George
VI’s first name?
8. What color is a purple
finch?
9. Where are Chinese
gooseberries from?
By the time you got half
way through the test, you
probably realized that the ob-
vious answers weren’t neces-

Collecting is not kid’s stuff
By Mark Holtsberry
Education specialist
Paulding SWCD
Homer Price from Payne was born Sept. 20,
1895 in a frame house built by his late father,
William Price.
Price, an authority on the scientific study of
birds, butterflies, eggs, moths and insects, had
one of the largest, if not the largest, collections
in the country.
Price began collecting birds’ eggs when he
was 10 years old. Sometimes, he would wade
waist deep in marshes in order to wait for a
rare bird to appear or for an unusual insect.
He was a full-time farmer and was active in
farm organizations. He collected insects and
eggs for over 50 or so years. He studied and
mounted them longer than that. He always be-
lieved that he could never complete his collec-
tion in his lifetime.
Price attended the Center School in Benton
Township and graduated from Payne High
School. He once stated, “I cannot teach sci-
ence, but I have the time to study and collect
specimens that will serve to educate other who
may observe them.”
In order to appreciate the extent of the Price
collection it is necessary to see it. This is why,
with the help and collaboration of the John
Paulding Historical Society, this is going to
happen.
A display case will be built at the Nature
Center to house some of his collection. What
a wonderful way to share the hard work and
knowledge of a self-educated man, whose pas-
sion for wildlife and birds were obvious. A
special thank you to the historical society for
a wonderful opportunity to share a part of
Homer F. Price.
For the next few weeks I will be introducing
a research paper that Price did in 1970, enti-
tled, “Birds of Paulding County, Ohio.”
Donations are still being accepted at the Soil
and Water Conservation office on Fairgrounds
Drive for the park’s repaving project. Please

HOMESPUN
By
JIM LANGHAM
I still may have some
work left in me yet
a small-town country store,
similar to the old country
store in Broughton.
At first he carried cheese
and cold cuts, then groceries,
then hardware, then toys, then
household items, then every-
thing one would never expect
to find in such a rural setting.
Finally, Pharr opened up a
delivery service. Every
Thursday he delivered with
his express van to Amish in
the area. Then he started buy-
ing items from the Amish to
sell. Then he started going to
Michigan to purchase fruit
and do special delivery to that
area.
Unfortunately, Pharr’s
country store was in direct hit
for the Palm Sunday tornado.
But his spirit wasn’t de-
stroyed; within months, he
was back in business with a
bigger and better store. The
Recently, I had the oppor-
tunity to meet a 99-year-old
man across the line in Indiana
who just retired from his
management of a small rural
store, just retired, as a matter
of fact, two months ago, at
the request of his family.
Howard Pharr claims to
have retired after a 95-year
career of working, beginning
with field work on the family
farm on the side of a farm in
northern Georgia. That
worked increased by the time
he was 7 years old and his fa-
ther was disabled with health
problems.
When he launched out, he
was still a teenager and he
and his brother would haul
produce from Georgia to
Michigan, then load Michi-
gan potatoes and return to
Georgia. Along that route,
there was a small “truck driv-
ers’” restaurant with a young
waitress named Ruffine serv-
ing coffee.
You may have already
guessed that Pharr stopped
more and more often to order
coffee and visit with her.
Ruffine and Pharr were mar-
ried over 60 years until her
passing a few years ago.
One year before the Palm
Sunday tornadoes passed
through the Midwest in 1965,
Ruffine and Howard opened
structure was to serve him
over the next 58 years, until
his retirement two months
ago.
But the tornado wasn’t the
only storm that Pharr battled;
illness plagued his family,
two daughters and his wife
have passed on, leaving him
with a living room full of pic-
tures and lots of stories for
those who will stop to listen
to the tales he spins.
His sharp mind goes from
memory to memory, for the
mountainsides of Georgia, to
the little restaurant along the
road, to all of the friends he’s
made along the road.
These days, as Pharr antic-
ipates his 100th birthday, he
only regrets one decision in
his business life, “retiring too
early.” He misses the people
and he misses going out the
back door of his home at 7
a.m. and walking the 10 feet
to his country store.
However, he says, he is not
sure yet if he is fully retired.
“The people on my delivery
route are trying to talk me
into selling peaches in a few
weeks,” says Pharr. “That
makes me feel kind of good.
I’m giving it some thought. I
think I might have just a little
work left in me, yet. Besides,
it would be nice to see all of
my friends.”
Officials required to develop
wild animal response plan
By JIM LANGHAM
Feature Writer
County officials have re-
cently been informed that they
and the state’s 87 other coun-
ties are being mandated to de-
velop a local dangerous wild
animal response plan. The pur-
pose of the plan is to describe
how the county will plan and
provide resource support be-
fore, during and after a danger-
ous wild animal emergency.
Last year, the state enacted a
law regulating the possession
of dangerous wild animals and
restricted snakes, including
tigers, lions, bears, elephants,
certain monkeys, rhinos, alliga-
tors and crocodiles, and ana-
condas and pythons 12 feet or
longer.
County commissioners said
that the primary agency in-
volved will be local law en-
forcement, but supporting
agencies include county emer-
gency management agency
(EMA), local public health de-
partment, emergency medical
services, media representation
and dangerous wild animal
subject matter.
“The state is requiring us to
put together a dangerous wild
animal response plan,” ob-
served Commissioner Fred
Pieper. “We have to put to-
gether the mandated commit-
tee, then, to approve the plan.”
Commissioner Roy
Klopfenstein said that the trick-
iest part is the requirement to
include someone who is a reg-
istered wild animal owner.
“EMA director Randy Shaf-
fer has been in charge of put-
ting this committee together,”
said Klopfenstein. “He can’t
find one registered wild animal
owner in the county. So then
the state says we are allowed to
use such an owner from an ad-
jacent county, but Randy said
that there are no such owners in
the counties surrounding
Paulding County.”
No dangerous wild animals
are currently registered in De-
fiance, Putnam and Van Wert
counties, according to Shaffer.
If you know or suspect
someone is unlawfully harbor-
ing a dangerous wild animal or
restricted snake, contact the
Ohio Department of Agricul-
ture by phone at at 855-DWA-
OHIO or email
animal@agri.ohio.gov.
Klopfenstein said that there
is some suggestion that state
officials may change that part
of the requirements for coun-
ties in such situations. The
commissioner said that Shaffer
has actually been put in charge
of heading up the project.
Klopfenstein said that the
mandate has resulted from a
tragedy in the Zanesville area
in October of 2008 in which an
individual released a large
number of wild animals he had
kept in captivity and then com-
mitted suicide.
Members of the sheriff de-
partment at Zanesville shot
nearly 50 wild animals at the
time, including 18 rare Bengal
tigers and 17 lions in what
turned out to be a big game
hunt across the state’s country-
side.
Frightened homeowners
nervously kept their families
inside while officers searched
the countryside for the exotic
animals released by Terry
Thompson from his Musk-
ingum County animal farm,
before he shot himself to death.
“Dangerous wild animal
emergencies may be caused
through human acts, inaction,
negligence, equipment mal-
function or natural disasters,”
state officials pointed out to
commissioners.
“First responders will em-
ploy incident command at the
emergency sites,” noted state
documents. “If and when a
dangerous wild animal emer-
gency occurs in the county that
exceeds the capability of local
incident command, local law
enforcement will act as the lead
agency for dangerous wild an-
imal response.”
State officials said that if
local law enforcement is not
available to fulfill duties as a
lead agency, responsibility is
passed to the next local law en-
forcement, fire department,
state wildlife officer assigned
to the county or county EMA.
County commissioners are
currently working on a tem-
plate to be approved by the
committee and submitted to
state officials for approval.

QUESTION: What can we
do about our teen’s use of
marijuana? When we con-
fronted him, he said that it’s
now socially acceptable and
on the verge of being legal-
ized. He’s refused to stop,
and we’re not sure how to
respond.
JIM: Sadly, your son is
correct in some respects. The
social stigma against mari-
juana is diminishing rapidly,
and some states, including
my home state of Colorado,
have legalized it for even
non-medicinal purposes.
Nevertheless, marijuana re-
mains off-limits to anyone
under 21 in every state and is
still illegal at the federal
level. Legalities aside, the
fact remains that cannabis is
a mind-altering and addictive
drug. Your son needs to know
that his physical and mental
health is being compromised.
If you’ve noticed recent
changes in his personality,
you can strengthen your case
by describing these behav-
ioral shifts in specific terms.
You can also direct him the
Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Administra-
tion (www.samhsa.gov),
where he can see images of
the brain on pot and access
facts about the effects of mar-
ijuana on the central nervous
system.
Once you’ve covered the
science, don’t hesitate to draw
a line in the sand. Let your son
know that, as long as he’s liv-
ing with you, the weed has to
go. The permissive attitudes of
society have nothing to do with
the standards governing your
home. Set firm and consistent
boundaries, and enforce them
by imposing swift and power-
ful consequences, for example,
the loss of cellphone or driving
privileges.
If he refuses to cooperate,
our counseling team recom-
mends that you seek profes-
sional help together, as a fam-
ily. The most successful
treatment programs take a fam-
ily systems approach that in-
volves intensive evaluation and
a series of counseling sessions
offered in an environment of
community and accountability.
QUESTION: How can cou-
ples achieve intimacy with a
newborn in the house? How
can we keep the spark going?
Dr. Greg Smalley, executive
director of Marriage and Fam-
ily Formation: After the birth of
a baby, interest in sex can be
very different for each person.
Some want to resume intimacy
as soon as possible. Others ex-
perience a decrease in desire.
There can be many reasons for
this: postpartum depression, fa-
tigue, preoccupation with the
baby, fear of discomfort during
intercourse (due to temporary
physiological changes follow-
ing the birth), tension or anxi-
ety about new responsibilities,
and hormonal changes.
Before you and your spouse
resume your sexual relation-
ship, talk with your doctor. Ask
specific questions about how
long you should wait before in-
tercourse and what you might
expect physically.
Medical considerations
aside, the key to a couple’s sex-
ual relationship after childbirth
is not how active their sex life
is. Instead, it is tied to their un-
derstanding of one another’s
needs. Ask each other ques-
tions like, “What would make
our intimate relationship a 10
to you?” “What do you need
from me sexually right now?”
It’s important to really listen
to how your mate responds to
these questions. Don’t dimin-
ish his or her responses. Re-
member, this is what your mate
needs from you sexually right
now. There is no right or wrong
answer. If you receive an an-
swer that is below your expec-
By Jim Daly
tations, honor your spouse,
even though you may not
agree.
And don’t forget, a wife will
respond sexually after she feels
emotionally connected to her
husband. Make sure you’re fo-
cusing on meeting each other’s
emotional and relational needs.
Talking about your day, pray-
ing together, setting relation-
ship goals and having regular
date nights will help build your
emotional relationship.
A positive sexual relation-
ship stems from a positive re-
lationship first. Once your
spouse feels like you’re honor-
ing his or her needs, then he or
she can better respond to
yours, too.

‘Winning the Battle for a Generation’
By Rick Jones
exec. director, Defiance
Area Youth for Christ
How do you deal with reality of death?
How do people in our culture deal with the re-
ality of death? One way is to mock death, as
though somehow by thumbing our nose at it, we
can prevent it from touching us. For example,
since 2001 the tiny mountain town of Nederland,
Colo. has hosted a celebration called “Frozen
Dead Guy Days.”
It started when Grandpa Bredo Morstoel died
in 1989 in Norway. A family member who wanted
to start her own cryogenics business, brought
Grandpa Bredo’s frozen body to Nederland, Colo.
When local authorities found out about it, the
practice of storing bodies was outlawed, but Mr.
Morstoel was grandfathered in and allowed to
stay in town. The town, seeing its opportunity to
laugh in the face of death, started the festival.
There was a frozen dead guy in their town, so
why not?
Today 20,000 people attend. The festival has
coffin races, ice turkey bowling, brain freeze
contests, a frozen salmon toss, a parade of
hearses, and lots of beer to toast Grandpa Bedo.
For a mere $150 you get a personal visit to the
see the remains of Mr. Morstoel.
Festival director Amanda MacDonald says the
goal is “to drink a convivial toast to the grim
specter of death or to spit in death’s eye.” This
gleefully macabre weekend built around a frozen
corpse, a frozen dead guy is yet another example
of how we finite human beings try to cope with
our pending physical demise.
Regarding the inevitability of all of us experi-
encing death the scriptures remind us in Hebrews
9:27 (NIV); “Just as man is destined to die once
and after that to face judgment...”
Adapted from David Swanson, Everlasting
Life (Baker Books, 2013).

Genealogical society holds
picnic, cemetery walk
ANTWERP – June 12 pro-
duced a bountiful selection of
“pot luck” foods for the
Paulding County Chapter of
Ohio Genealogical Society
(PCCOGS) annual picnic
held at Antwerp Veterans
Riverside Park with 20 mem-
bers in attendance.
To start off the group’s
“Walk in Riverside Ceme-
tery,” Sandra Gordon spoke
about the “1893 Murder in
Edgerton, Ind.” Edgerton was
a rough and tough town back
in the day, bordering the state
line next to Ohio. There was
a shootout in the street during
the late 19th century. Partici-
pating in this shootout was
Hugh Crier (1834-1893); he
is buried in Antwerp’s River-
side Cemetery. Hugh served
in the Civil War, Co K 20th
Ind. Inf.
Ray Keck walked members
to the gravesite of his third
great-grandmother, Mary
Mancil (1806-1871). Hus-
band Patrick died on board
ship emigrating to the U.S.
from Ireland. Mary was left
to raise their five children. An
Ireland marking is on their
gravestone.
Elizabeth Derck was born
March 4, 1844 and died Feb.
18, 1928. She married Peter
and came to Paulding County.
She is Marilyn Smith’s great-
great-grandmother.
Karen Sanders walked to
Robert Sylvester Murphy and
his wife, Roxanna, who are
buried in Riverside Cemetery.
Tapping the grave marker re-
vealed it is made of metal.
Folklore tells this type of
marker was used to encase
the wife’s wedding dress at
her death. Does it encapsulate
a wedding dress?
Karen also let members
know that several grave
markers were recently
brought up from the ravine by
a local volunteer.
There will not be an August
meeting. The next PCCOGS
meeting will be held at 6:30
p.m. Sept. 11 at the Paulding
County Carnegie Library.
Guest Kelly Bergheimer will
present: “The Mess on Your
Desk!” Is your desk messy?
Join PCCOGS – guests are
always welcome.
Reminder: Oct. 1 is the
deadline to submit applica-
tions for First Families and
Century Families Paulding
County to be able to receive a
certificate of recognition of
pioneer ancestors who lived
in Paulding County on or be-

In The
Garden
True confessions
Let’s get personal, shall
we? When I worked in pri-
vate practice as a dental hy-
gienist in New Haven, Ind., I
did my grocery shopping
there before heading home. It
never failed that I would en-
counter a patient or two and
they’d not so subtly inspect
what I had in my grocery cart.
Let there be candy or a box
of Lucky Charms in there
(and there nearly always was)
and they couldn’t help them-
selves. I’d be queried, “You
eat THAT?” And then there
would be clucking and sham-
ing because surely all dental
personnel only eat healthy
foods, right? I know this
comes as a shock to most, but
we’re normal people with bad
habits.
I’ve got bad habits and
shameful things going on in
my gardens, too. Just because
I write about gardening and
dispense gardening advice
doesn’t mean that all is well
and good at Our Little Acre.
We all have our limitations
and it’s apparent that I’ve got
plenty.
I enjoy weeding. I really
do. But you might not be able
to tell that from looking at
some of my flower beds. You
see, I’m easily distracted. I
can be merrily weeding along
and then come across a plant
that needs pruning. I am com-
pelled to stop weeding, go get
the pruners, and cut that
thing. You know what hap-
pens next, don’t you?
I see a plant that I’ve been
meaning to move for weeks
and I have to do it NOW. Off
I go, in search of the spade
and the plant gets moved. I
meant to do it before, but
some weeds caught my atten-
tion and well, you know.
And then there’s fertilizing.
We all need to eat and plants
are no different. But my
plants are starving. As the
growing season progresses,
plants take what they need
from the soil and those nutri-
ents need to be replenished.
They can live without extra
help from the gardener, but
they’ll flower better and pro-
duce more fruit if you give
them some extra nourishment
from time to time.
I have good intentions. I
start out the season fertilizing
the roses and that first flush
of bloom is glorious. I prune
those when they’ve finished
blooming (I love to prune)
and that would be the best
know how some people pile
the mulch around their trees
like a volcano? And you
know that you aren’t sup-
posed to do that, right? It’s
bad for the tree and you
shouldn’t be surprised if it
dies a slow death if you do.
I just saw some beautiful
young trees on a property
near us this morning and I
wanted to stop and warn the
owners what will surely hap-
pen if they don’t move that
mulch away from the tree
trunks until you can see the
flare of the roots.
But visit my garden and
you’ll see something even
worse. Many, many years
ago, before I knew better
(yes, I’m claiming igno-
rance), we piled soil up
around one of our 200+ year
old oak trees and planted
hostas. That soil is up at least
a foot around the trunk and
no, the tree hasn’t died, but I
guess age trumps stupidity in
this case. Don’t do as we did.
We have committed other
transgressions, too. (Notice
how I’m including my hus-
band now?) We’ve planted
things too close to each other
and too close to the house.
We’ve planted invasive
plants. We wait way too long
before giving up on a non-
thriving plant.
I’ll stop now before you
think I don’t know a darn
thing about gardening and
wonder why I’m writing a
gardening column. I know
better, but I’m just like the
rest of you. I’m learning more
every day and I have a rebel-
lious streak. If you want to
share your dirty little garden-
ing secrets, too, I’ll listen. I
understand.

time to give them a shot of
fertilizer again, but other
things occupy my attentions
and it rarely gets done.
So the second flush of
bloom is more sparse and the
blooms are smaller. Lather,
rinse and repeat for the third
flush.
We do apply compost that’s
been percolating all summer
at the end of the growing sea-
son when putting the garden
to bed. But we need to do this
when the plants need it most.
Let’s talk about mulching.
More than one summer has
found a pile of mulch sitting
in the turnaround in our
driveway all the way through
August (including this year).
I hate that, yet things keep
getting in the way of complet-
ing this mammoth task.
First of all, I don’t want to
mulch until everything is
weeded, watered, edged,
moved and pruned. Mulching
is the last step in my list of
gardening tasks.
Writer Sandra Felton clas-
sifies me as a “Perfectionist
Messie.” This means that I
won’t clean the oven until the
entire kitchen can be cleaned
and if I don’t have time to do
it all, then I do none of it. I’m
kind of the same way in the
garden. I’m fighting this trait
and yes, my oven eventually
gets cleaned, but that
mulching still isn’t done.

Hospital board
hears about
HIPAA regulations
By BILL SHERRY
Correspondent
PAULDING – The Paulding County Hospital (PCH) Board
of Trustees met on Aug. 1 for their monthly meeting following
a short executive session.
Human resources manager Melanie Rittenour briefed board
members concerning HIPAA rules and regulations that affect
healthcare facilities like the Paulding County Hospital
It was announced that Dr. Kate Gilreath had started her fam-
ily practice in the PCH Medical Office Building as planned on
July 29. For more information or to inquire about becoming
her patient, please call 419-399-1782. Dr. Gilreath is accepting
new patients.
Chief Executive Officer Gary Adkins reported that he had
met with State Rep. Tony Burkley and State Sen. Cliff Hite to
discuss the hospital’s support for Medicaid expansion. The
hospital supports Governor Kasich’s proposal to expand the
Medicaid program because without Medicaid expansion the
hospital could potentially forego approximately half a million
in federal reimbursements per year.
Chief Financial Officer Rob Goshia reported that for the
month of June, PCH realized a loss of $9,674 with a year-to-
date gain of $82,109. Volume decreased in June, which is typ-
ical for a summer month.
The Paulding County Hospital Foundation golf outing was
a success with a projected income of almost $10,000.
Chief Operating Officer Randy Ruge reported that PCH
would be doing the conversion on the nuclear medicine equip-
ment on Aug. 5. A Siemens Dual Head eCam will be installed.
This new equipment will result in tests being performed twice
as fast as before.
Ruge reported that an upgrade to the swing bed rooms is
being planned. This will provide more comfort for PCH pa-
tients.
The next board meeting is scheduled for 6:45 p.m. Sept. 5.

COLUMBUS – Ohio is changing how it
evaluates and communicates the academic
performance of its schools and districts.
Schools and districts will no longer receive la-
bels like “Excellent” or “Continuous Improve-
ment.” In its place, they will receive letter
grades on several measures in the same way a
student receives grades for his or her classes.
The new report card will be phased in over
several years, starting this year. Beginning in
August 2015, schools and districts will receive
grades on measures like the four-year gradua-
tion rate. The grades for measures will be
combined into six broad categories, called
components, which also will receive a grade.
Finally, the component grades will be com-
bined into an overall grade for the school or
district.
The six components that will be on the new
report card are:
1. Achievement: This component measures
absolute academic achievement compared to
national standards of success.
2. Progress: This component measures the
average annual improvement for each student
(i.e., whether a student gained more or less a
year of knowledge and skills each year).
3. Gap Closing: This component measures
how well a school or district is doing in nar-
rowing gaps in reading, math and graduation
rate among students according to socioeco-
nomic, racial, ethnic or disability status.
4. Graduation Rate: This component meas-
ures the percentage of students who entered the
9th grade and graduated in four and five years.
5. K-3 Literacy: This component measures
the improvement in reading for students in
kindergarten through grade three.
6. Prepared for Success: This component
measures whether students who graduate are
prepared for college or a career.
The transition to the new report card begins
right away. In August 2013, the report card
will have nine measures that receive grades.
There will be no component or overall grades
until August 2015. This will give schools time
to adjust to the new system and focus their ef-
forts on being successful in all areas that are
being measured. The report card will also be
interactive on ODE’s website, so everyone can
find the information they need.
In coming months, the state board of edu-
cation will be working with educators and
communities to determine how to award letter
grades in each of the categories listed above.
For more information on each of the compo-
nents, please refer to the one page summaries
posted on ODE’s website: newreportcard.ed-
ucation.ohio.gov.

Parent mentor attends
conference in Milwaukee
Cathy Ruiz, parent mentor
for Western Buckeye Educa-
tional Service Center and
service coordinator for Pauld-
ing County Family and Chil-
dren First Council, recently
attended Region 4 Parent
Technical Assistance Center
Summer Conference in Mil-
waukee.
Ruiz represented the Pauld-
ing County area and partici-
pated in trainings, meetings
and conferences with the cur-
rent OCECD executive direc-
tor and several staff members.
With this training, she as-
pires to provide the highest
quality services available for
the parents of children with
disabilities, as well as area
school districts and county,
region, and state agencies
with whom she collaborates
around the region.
Ruiz has served as a parent
mentor for the past six years.
As a parent of two children
with special needs, she under-
stands the daily struggles and
trials and tribulations associ-
ated with raising children
with disabilities.
Because of her passion and
indisputable understanding of
the special education process,
she has dedicated the past six
years to helping other parents
who deal with these same is-
sues. More specifically, she
provides information and re-
sources to families and school
districts, including educa-
tional laws, district programs
and services, community re-
sources, and special-needs-
related resources, all free of
charge.
Additionally, Ruiz, who has
spent numerous hours present-
ing special-needs-related train-
ings state-wide, will guide
families through the special ed-
ucation process, including
rights and responsibilities; will
listen and provide support to
families and educators on an
individual basis; will attend In-
dividual Education Program
(IEP) meetings at a parent’s or
school’s request; will organize
and conduct informational ses-
sions or workshops based on
the needs of families and
school personnel; and will at-
tempt to build collaborative
partnerships between families,
schools, and committees to
benefit students with disabili-
ties.
She can easily be reached by
telephone at Wayne Trace
Payne Elementary (419-263-
2512 ext. 454) or by e-mail
(cruiz@wb.noacsc.org).
Ohio to establish more than
28,000 acres of pheasant habitat
COLUMBUS – Ohio
landowners in select counties
are now eligible to enroll in the
Conservation Reserve Program
(CRP) which seeks to restore
pheasant habitats across the
state, according to the Ohio De-
partment of Natural Resources
(ODNR). This habitat improve-
ment program is called the Ohio
Pheasant State Acres for
Wildlife Enhancement (SAFE)
and Ohio expects to establish
28,700 acres through the pro-
gram.
Pheasant SAFE utilizes a
wildlife management practice
specifically developed by con-
servation organizations and
agencies located within Ohio to
establish and restore habitats to
support declining populations of
game bird species. The program
specifically targets declining
pheasant and quail populations
in areas of greatest impact, and
the applicant may elect a con-
tract period between 10-15
years. Pheasant SAFE allows
for enrollment of whole fields.
The SAFE program is avail-
able as a continuous signup
practice under CRP on a first-
come, first-served basis.
To maximize the benefits to
game bird populations, Ohio
Pheasant SAFE is available in
the state’s core pheasant range:
Auglaize, Champaign, Clark,
Clinton, Darke, Defiance,
Fayette, Fulton (partial), Hardin,
Highland (partial), Huron,
Knox, Logan, Madison, Marion
(partial), Morrow, Paulding,
Pickaway, Ross (partial),
Seneca, Shelby, Union and
Wyandot (partial) counties.
Grasslands created through
the program will benefit pop-
ulations of ring-necked
pheasants and other wildlife
that depend on those habitats.
Habitat improvement is par-
ticularly beneficial to pheas-
ants and quail, which are
species that have severely de-
clined over the past few
decades from habitat loss. The
CRP program is maintained
by the U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA) Farm
Service Agency (FSA). Ring-
necked pheasant introduc-
tions to Ohio were considered
successful by 1914.
It is hoped the Pheasant
SAFE will offset some of the
154,806 acres of Ohio grassland
scheduled to expire out of CRP
during the next five years.
Ohio Pheasant SAFE partici-
pants will be eligible for sign-up
and practice incentive payments,
cost-share assistance for estab-
lishment and management and
annual rental payments. Inter-
ested landowners with eligible
cropland should sign up before
all available acres are enrolled,
or by Monday, Sept. 30. Ap-

Visitors voice concerns
at Paulding Council
By BILL SHERRY
Correspondent
PAULDING – Several visitors attended the
Paulding Village Council meeting Monday, Aug.
5, with several different items, including a request
to vacate an alley.
Attorney Dave Hyman, representing Lonnie
Schooley, submitted a proposal to vacate the alley
between lots 15 and 16 in the Olds & Prentice Ad-
dition. Council agreed to bring this before the street
committee for further action. A street committee
meeting was scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Aug. 12.
Two other visitors, Tim Santo and Kerry Santo,
informed council of several items including speed-
ing on Emerald Road, extremely loud pickup
trucks, four-wheelers and pedestrians and bicy-
clists riding and walking on the wrong side of the
street. Mayor Greg White informed the visitors
that he would be in conversation with the Paulding
police chief regarding these issues.
Another visitor, Brian Waters, asked for clarifi-
cation regarding releasing insurance money held
by the village following a fire. Village administra-
tor Harry Wiebe informed Waters that this decision
would be made by the fire chief and the village
building inspector.
The committee of the whole met on Aug. 5 to
discuss the sewer separation project Phase 1 and
received the following information:
• the sanitary sewer installation is 75% com-
plete as of July 1
• the storm sewer installation is 10% complete
• the cure-in-place will begin the last week in
August if no delays due to weather. The cure-in-
place is a sock that will be installed in the existing
sanitary sewer, which will then become the new
storm sewer.
• trench repairs (paving) began on July 26. As
can be seen around the square and behind the
school on Emerald Road, it is well under way.
Wiebe presented council with an administrator’s
agenda, which contained the following three items:
• Peterson Construction Company is requesting
a “retainage reduction” for the water treatment
plant project to reduce the retainage from
$386,896.64 to $100,000. Council unanimously
approved a motion ratifying the reduction and au-
thorizing White or Wiebe to sign the payment ap-
plication submitted by Peterson Construction.
• The village has received a proposal for engi-
neering services for the Dooley Drive pavement
improvement project. The proposal has been re-
viewed and been deemed satisfactory by the vil-
lage solicitor. Approval of the administrator’s
agenda authorized Wiebe to sign the proposal.
• The third item was Change Order No. Seven
regarding the new water plant project.
Council unanimously approved the administra-
tor’s agenda.
Council unanimously suspended the rules, de-
clared an emergency and unanimously voted to
pass Resolution No. 1283-13 authorizing a Water
Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) construc-
tion loan application for the construction of waste-
water treatment plant planning, design and
construction.
The second reading was heard of Resolution
No. 1282-13 to authorize a cooperative fishing
agreement with the State of Ohio.
Mayor White announced that the proceeds for
Mayor’s Court for the month of July was $315.90.
Village solicitor Mike Jones requested and
council voted unanimously to go into executive
session to discuss some personnel matters.
The next regularly scheduled meeting will be
held at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 19.

During the Paulding County Fair’s junior fair livestock auction in June several individuals and
businesses indicated they would be donating $1,000 or more each toward the new barns to be
built on the fairgrounds. Here committee members Mark Spangler, left, and Roy Klopfenstein,
right, thank Bob Sinn representing Bob Sinn Farms, Haviland for his donation. Costs of the project
are expected to be around $250,000. As of Monday, commitments toward the project total were
about 75 percent of the goal.

County sets new dog license options
PAULDING – The Pauld-
ing County commissioners
adopted a resolution setting
new dog license fees effective
Dec. 1.
In recent action, the three-
member board authorized the
county auditor to receive dog
license fees in accordance
with the amended mandated
HB 59 options for a one-year
dog license; three-year dog li-
cense or a permanent dog li-
cense.
Dog license fees were set
as follows: one-year license,
$15 per dog; late fee $15 per
dog; three-year dog license
$45; and permanent dog li-
cense fee $150. Payments to
be made to the OSU College
of Veterinary Medicine in-
clude: 10 cents for the one-
year license; 30 cents for a
three-year license and $1 for
the permanent license.
Auditor Claudia Fickel and
Brandon Shuherk attended
the meeting and discussed
HB 59 and the changes in dog
tag fees.
Fickel reported receiving
quotes for purchasing the dog
tags. She also noted there
were 4,174 tags sold last year,
including kennel tags. Kennel
tags may be purchased for
five dogs, with additional
dogs $1 extra each.
She also noted that dog
owners who breed should ob-
tain a vendors’ license before
selling the puppies. Puppies 3
months and older need to
have a dog tag and Fickel also
explained the permanent dog
tags may be transferred with
the dog from owner to owner,
but may not be transferred
from one dog to another.
A resolution was passed
deeming it necessary to levy
a tax in excess of the 10-mill
limitation for the enhanced
911 system.
Luke Jackson, who is
working toward becoming an
Eagle Scout, proposed land-
scaping the four corners of
the courthouse square as his
Eagle Scout community proj-
ect. He reported he will be
working with Chris Banks, a
local landscaping business
owner. He would like to start
his project soon. The com-
missioners suggested that he
bring in his recommenda-
tions.
Greg Flowers of Build A
Computer presented a report
of a site assessment of the
courthouse building infra-
structure and connectivity.
Recommended was the in-
stallation of new server hard-
ware and software with
various improvements.
The commissioners re-
quested that Flowers put to-
gether a package of specs of
what the courthouse will need
in preparation of a future sys-
tem upgrade.
Bids were received and
opened for the 2013 Benton
Township road improvement
project. Gerken Paving Inc.,
Napoleon won the bid with a
bid of $580,785.25.
The county engineer’s esti-
mate for the project is
$626,220. The specifications
will be studied with a deter-
mination to be made later.
Treasurer Lou Ann Wan-
nemacher presented the June
30 investment report for the
commissioners’ review. She
noted the total county treas-
ury investments are
$10,866,987.24. She also re-
ported $32,172.61 in interest
income revenue for the first
six months of 2013. She
noted a low percentage of
delinquencies on 2013 real
estate taxes.
Wannemacher also pro-
vided copies of the Permis-
sive Sales and Use Tax for
July 2013, for the commis-
sioners’ review in preparation
of the audit committee meet-
ing.

Rood brings family back to ‘ACRES Inc.’
By JIM LANGHAM
Feature Writer
Sarah Rood returned to fa-
miliar family ground on Satur-
day morning to bring her
daughter, Jill Noyes, and
granddaughter, Adeline Noyes,
to the land that she had donated
several years ago to ACRES
Inc., located along Ohio 500,
southwest of Paulding.
The land, purchased origi-
nally by her great-grandfather,
Noah Long, when he moved to
Paulding County from Hardin
County, had gradually passed
down through family members
until it turned into a family cor-
poration known as Crooked
Creek Farm, Inc.
Rood said that her great-
grandfather’s purchase had
been from a “Mr. Latty” and
had the signature of Martin Van
Buren on it.
“My great-grandfather
began purchasing land 40 acres
at a time,” said Rood. “He
completed a new home on
Road 91 in 1892. However, his
wife passed away before they
could move in.”
In 2005, Rood purchased an
additional 120 acres. Then she
got a call from Maurie Wan-
nemacher informing her that
another 18 acres adjacent to the
land along Ohio 500 had be-
come available. In order to pro-
tect the farm land of her family
heritage, she immediately pur-
chased the land.
“That land just sat there for
a while and then my daughter
(Jill) said to me, ‘Mom, you re-
ally ought to do something
with that land out there,’” Rood
said.
Rood decided to talk with
Jason Kissel of ACRES Inc.
Rood agreed to add another 32
acres from her land to make a
50-acre donation to ACRES.
Trails were then developed to
satisfy a continuing plan to
give Paulding County residents
the opportunity to walk, study
nature and enjoy Paulding
County wilderness along Flat
Rock Creek.
“I connected with ACRES
on this because I wanted to see
this land remain undisturbed,”
said Rood. “I wanted my fam-
ily to be able to walk where I
used to walk with my family.
We had family gatherings on
that land and we had picnics. I
had so much fun growing up
there. I wanted it to be there for
the family after I’m gone.
“This was just a good way to
make sure that it goes on,” con-
tinued Rood.
Joining Rood and her family
on Saturday were several area
residents and Angie Quinn
from Maumee Valley Heritage
Corridor. Quinn was present to
tell the story of the land and
Flat Rock Creek to those given
a tour of the trails.
Quinn noted that the ACRES
Inc. Reserve is connected to
Maumee Valley in the sense
that Flat Rock Creek, a part of
the Maumee Valley drainage
system, is part of the Maumee
Valley Heritage Corridor.
“We got a grant from the
Ohio Humanities Council for
programming and sharing
about places like the Flat Rock
Creek,” said Quinn. “The Flat
Rock Creek qualifies for all of
it because it was part of the
original Great Black Swamp.
That river was here and flow-
ing through the swamp.”
Those who attended were
given a trail tour by Rood and
historical instruction from
Quinn.
“The mission of the
Maumee Valley Corridor is to
advocate for and protect histor-
ical, natural and cultural re-
sources of the Maumee Valley
watershed while promoting
their use and appreciation by
current and future residents and
visitors,” said Quinn.
“I’m so happy to see this and
how many people are enjoying
it,” said Rood. “I’m enjoying it
right along with everyone else.
It’s a lot of fun being a part of it.
“There’s a natural ditch on
that land. We’re working to to
get a bridge across it. If we can,
it will open up more trails and
preserve,” Rood said. “We want
to get the land back to Paulding
County to enjoy for generations
to come.”
Sarah Rood returned to familiar childhood trails on Saturday morning to meet with Angie Quinn of Maumee Valley Heritage
Corridor to take a walk on land Rood donated to ACRES Inc. Pictured are, from left – Quinn, Jill Noyes, Adeline Noyes and Rood.

Paulding Elementary– Stephanie Tear
I hope the excitement of returning to school is in
your home! My excitement is about to overflow!!
The hallways here at Paulding Elementary are
ready for smiling faces! The first day of school is
August 20, and I can hardly wait. On August 19
th
,
we will enjoy Open House from 6:00-7:30. Stu-
dents and parents will have an opportunity to meet
their child’s teacher, drop off school supplies and
pay school fees. We are lucky to have new smil-
ing staff faces as well here to enrich our school.
Teachers new to our district this year are: Kelsi
Grime-Kindergarten, Brian Jacobs-Kindergarten,
Stacey Vaske-Kindergarten, Lisa Burger-Title
One, Mark Ball-Title One, and Joel Ellerbrock-
Fourth Grade. Please join me in welcoming them
to our school.
We are welcoming everyone back to a school
rated Excellent with Distinction and we can take
pride in that accomplishment! I wish to express
my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to our
students, teachers, staff, and to the parents/
guardians of our students. Thank you to everyone
for a job well done this past school year and I
wish everyone the best as we embark on our jour-
ney into the new academic year.
The beginning of the year is a great opportunity to
begin fresh, set new goals and strive towards ex-
cellence! The Staff at Paulding Elementary has
been working diligently towards preparing for the
new 2013-2014 school year. We are sure all stu-
dents will return to school eager and ready to
learn!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any
concerns or comments at 419-399-4656. Please
watch for the monthly newsletter that comes home
at the beginning of each month. It is also on the
school website at paudingschols.org. Working
together is important to academic success and we
are confident it will be another successful year for
the Paulding Elementary family!

Oakwood Elementary-Jennifer Manz
Hello from Oakwood Elementary on a beautiful
summer day! It is hard to believe it is nearly Au-
gust! I am certain no matter what the calendar
says, July only had about ten days in it; and it
seems as though August’s days go by in a blink!
Time is flying by as we are busy preparing for the
new school year.
Teachers are returning to their classrooms to
begin organizing and planning for the upcoming
school year in an effort to make it an even more
productive and successful year than the one we
finished only two short months ago. Class lists
for 2013-2014 will be posted on the Oakwood
Elementary website and on the main door here at
Oakwood Elementary on Thursday, August 8, and
will appear in local newspapers the week of Au-
gust 12. Our school supply lists were sent home
in the grade card envelopes in May and are on the
school website; but if you would like another hard
copy, I have them here in the office. Feel free to
stop in and pick one up. (School website:
www.pauldingschools.org click on Oakwood
Elementary)
The results of the Grades 3-8 Ohio Achievement
Tests arrived in our district in mid June. Parent
reports were mailed home to Oakwood Elemen-
tary families on July 9
th
. I am so PROUD to be
able to let you know that Oakwood Elementary
successfully met all ten of our indicators set forth
by the State of Ohio. I am thankful for the effort
our staff and students put into giving their best on
each lesson, assignment, and learning activity
throughout the year. I also appreciate the support
we feel from our students’ parents and community
members, as you encourage your children to make
the most of the educational opportunities provid-
ed. If you see an Oakwood Elementary student or
staff member, please congratulate them on a job
well done!
Please join us in welcoming a new staff member
to Oakwood Elementary for the 2013-2014 school
year. Ms. Elyse Myers will be teaching 5
th
and 6
th

grade Language Arts and 6
th
grade Social Studies.
We look forward to having Ms. Myers join the
Oakwood Elementary team!
A special note to our parents: On the first day of
school, several forms will come home with your
children that need to be completed and returned to
school, as soon as possible. Thank you in ad-
vance for promptly seeing to your “Annual Parent
Homework.” Please be assured that each form is
important. If you have any questions as you are
completing them, please contact the office
(419.399.3346) and we will help you.
Again, I hope you are enjoying summertime! I
look forward to seeing you at our Open House on
Monday, August 19
th
, from 5:30 to 7:00. Every-
one is welcome!

Middle School-David Stallkamp
Hello from Paulding Middle School! Welcome

hope everyone had a very enjoyable and relaxing
summer and that you will be ready for another
fantastic school year starting Tuesday, August

that you will give this year your very best effort.

er pertinent information needed for the start of
school will be mailed out the week of August
12th. If you have not received anything by the
end of that week, please contact the school and we
will get it to you.
Open House is set for Monday night, August 19th,
from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Please stop by, walk through
the beautiful building, and work a little on your
locker combination, if necessary. This is a great
time to meet the teachers, see where your classes
are and to walk through your schedule if you
need to. As I mentioned, the building is in fantas-
tic shape. I thank the custodians and everyone
that worked extremely hard this summer to make
it look so nice.
We welcome the following new faces to the mid-
dle school for 2013-2014. Miss Sarah Askins –

this upcoming year to help plan vacations, etc.
The testing window from the State of Ohio is

th
. Our exact dates are not offi-
cially scheduled yet, but we must administer these
tests in that three week window.

all school fund raiser we will have. All profit
money will be used to purchase items for the stu-

ordering. I thank you in advance for your contin-
ued support of our kids.
Thank you for all your support and together we
will make 2013-2014 a very good school year.

High School-Todd Harmon
Thank you to our custodial staff for doing a great
job in getting the building cleaned and ready for
the students and teachers to return. The staff will
be beginning the start of the school year with
safety training and preparation for the new evalua-
tion system. The teachers will be preparing Smart
Goals for professional purposes connected to the
Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES).
The secretaries and guidance personnel will be in
the office beginning August 6

register a new student, please stop in the guidance
office or call after this date.
Please help me welcome Mr. Kyle Coleman to our
staff as an Intervention Teacher.
Open House is Monday, August 19 from 6:30-
8:00 PM. This is a good time to meet your child's
teachers and find your way around the building,
and also take care of any fees your child may
have. Fees must be addressed, especially if your
child wishes to be involved in extracurricular
activities. If you are unable to pay for all fees at
once, a payment plan can be set up in the office.
Meet the Teams night will be Friday August 23rd
at the football field after the football scrimmage,
which begins at 6:00, vs. Edgerton. We look
forward to another great school year and look
forward to serving the Paulding community - Go

SAFETY-ARRIVAL/DISMISSAL
As the start of school arrives, it is time to remind
everyone about the safety of our students. Please
be aware, whether they are walking, in a car, or on
a school bus going to or coming from school, we
need to watch out for the students. They are often
distracted by the excitement of the start of school
and do not see us.
At Paulding, buses will bring the students to the
bus parking area on Emerald Road. Parents who
drive their elementary children to school should
drop them off at the horseshoe drive on Water
Street. Middle and High School drop off will be
behind the building on Emerald Road. Designated
visitor parking is available. Please utilize this to
enter the elementary through their entrance and
the middle school/high school through the doors
under the Panther.
At Oakwood all buses will bring the students to
the bus area off First Street. Parents who drive
their children to school should drop them off at
the entrance on Third Street.

DELAY /CLOSING ANNOUNCEMENTS
School is delayed or closed for bad weather be-
cause of concern for student safety. The Superin-
tendent and Support Services Supervisor check
weather conditions every school morning. If fog
(which can develop late), snow or ice makes the
bus turnarounds and routes too dangerous, school
is delayed or closed.
The Paulding Exempted Village Schools use a
two-hour delay and three-hour delay, and then, if
necessary, close. The delay provides time for the
weather conditions to change. The Honeywell
Instant Alert System will be our primary method
of communication on school delays and cancella-
tions. The system is ready for you to use at
https://instantalert.honeywell.com. We encour-
age all of you to take advantage of this opportu-
nity, as we will be utilizing this system to contact
parents and students for most of our school-to-
home communication, including notification of
emergencies or early dismissals. The announce-
ment is also put on the website, switchboard an-
swering machine and area radio/TV stations. The
school website address is: pauldingschools.org.
The announcement is normally called into radio/
TV stations by 6:00 a.m., though fog can cause a
later call.

BREAKFAST AND LUNCH PRICES
Elementary MS/HS
Breakfast-$1.35 Breakfast-$1.60
Lunch-$2.25 Lunch-$2.50

NOTICE FOR ABSENCE
The district’s attendance policy asks that a parent
telephone the school on the day a student will be
absent. Also, a note must accompany a student on
the day of his return to school, noting the reason
for absence.

PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT
The “No Child Left Behind Act” encourages par-
ents to be actively involved in the education of
your child. All parents have the right to know the
teaching qualifications of their child’s classroom
teacher. Information made be obtained by con-
tacting the principal in your child’s building or by
accessing the Ohio Department of Education web-
site at http://webapp2.ode.state.oh.us/core/. The
Ohio PIRC (Parent Information and Resource
Center) is also a valuable resource with ideas for
getting involved in your child’s education. The
Ohio PIRC may be contacted at 1-866-253-1829,
or visit their website at http://www.ohiopirc.org/
index.php.

ANNUAL EPA REQUIRED NOTICE
All of the school buildings in the Paulding Ex-
empted Village School District are free of Asbes-
tos Containing Building Materials (ACBM). The
only ACBM known to remain in district owned
buildings is in the football locker room. This

nance program is in place. You may direct any
questions concerning ACBM within the school to
Maria Rellinger at 419-399-4656, ext. 1550.

Simple ways older drivers can save money on auto insurance
(BPT) – Are your auto
insurance premiums too
high? Maybe they are, but
not for reasons you might
think. Insurance companies
aren’t charging you higher
premiums because you’re in
an over-50 age group. You
may be paying too much
because you haven’t done
anything to lower the cost of
your premiums. Check out
these money-saving tips –
they could be right up your
alley.
• Comparison shop. You
don’t need to stay with the
same insurance company
forever. Prices vary from
company to company. Just
be sure you discuss the iden-
tical coverage with each
company representative.
Also, don’t go by price
alone. Consider the compa-
ny’s reputation, customer
service and available dis-
counts. Look online at cus-
tomer reviews to get a better
picture.
• Combine policies with
one carrier. You may save
money if you insure all your
vehicles on a single policy.
Your premium may also go
down if you have life or
homeowners’ insurance with
that company, too.
• Consider asking about
higher deductibles. In some
cases, if you increase your
deductible, you could lower
your premiums. Of course,
that means you’ll have to
pay more money out-of-
pocket if you’re in an acci-
dent.
• Take an AARP Driver
Safety course. Available
both online and in the class-
room – in English and
Spanish – this course teach-
es valuable defensive driv-
ing techniques and provides
a refresher about the rules of
the road. When you com-
plete the course, you could
qualify for a multiyear dis-
count from your auto insur-
ance company (check with
your insurance agent for
more details). Visit
www.aarp.org/drive to find a
course in your area.
• Consider dropping colli-
sion and/or comprehensive
coverage. It may not make
financial sense to pay premi-
ums over many years to
maintain collision and com-
prehensive coverage. If your
car is worth less than 10
times the premium, purchas-
ing the coverage may not be
cost effective, according to
the Insurance Information
Institute (III). But don’t drop
your liability coverage,
which can help cover
expenses for property or
bodily damage you cause
while driving your car.
• Take advantage of low-
mileage discounts. Some
carriers offer discounts to
drivers who put less than a
predetermined number of
miles on their vehicles each
year. If you’re only using
your car to drive to your
kids’ houses, the grocery
store, the mall and the gym,
If you’re age 50 or over, check into options for lowering your
car insurance premiums.
this could be a money-sav-
ing opportunity.
• Ask about car-safety dis-
counts. Some insurers give
discounts for having certain
safety devices in your car,
such as air bags, automatic
safety belts, antilock brakes,
daytime running lights, or
even an approved alarm sys-
tem. In addition to lowering
your premium, these fea-
tures will help keep you safe
on the road.
• If you’re in the market
for a new car, consider pur-
chasing a low-profile vehi-
cle. It’s more expensive to
insure a vehicle that’s
expensive to repair, popular
with thieves or known for
not having a good safety
record. To find out vehicles’
risk levels, visit the
Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety website.
Everyone’s trying to save
money these days. By fol-
lowing these tips, you’ll be
in the driver’s seat when it
comes to auto insurance pre-
miums.
