Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING Jano has a lot of ad-
justing to do.
First, there are the new people with
their new language.
Then, there is the new climate and
And thats just the beginning.
Who is this Jano? And why might
we care about him?
Jano (pronounced yaa-no) is the
Paulding County Sheriffs office new
K-9 unit. Originally from
Czechoslovakia, he has been making
his home in the county since Sept. 11
and is getting ready to begin serious
training in law enforcement.
At the tender age of one year (his
birthday was last month) Jano and his
handler Deputy Gary Deitrick will
enter a rigorous 14-week program of
instruction during which the pair will
learn to work together in the areas of
obedience, tracking, drug detection
and attack.
Before they are allowed to get their
joint educations underway, both had
visits scheduled with their doctors.
Each is required to pass a physical.
Those appointments were earlier this
Training will be based out of Allen
County, Ind., under the instruction of
Master Trainer Bob Compton. It will
begin Sept. 23.
Our first training will be three
weeks of classroom work with obedi-
ence training, said Deitrick. We will
start Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.
until 4 p.m. Nights and weekends will
be added later.
One of the first projects to be tack-
led will be teaching Jano to understand
commands in English. He currently
has minimal training in obedience,
tracking and searching. But he only
knows Czechoslovakian. This is not
uncommon because most law enforce-
ment dogs come from Europe.
Jano was selected along with other
dogs from European countries by Von
der Haus Gill German Shepherds for
use in the States. Sheriff Jason
Landers, Chief Deputy Mark Butler
and Deitrick traveled to this
Wapakoneta-area business to select
the countys new canine unit last
We looked at six dogs, said
Sheriff Landers. Most of them were
He noted that because Deputy
Deitrick would be the handler, the
final selection of the animal was left in
his hands.
Deitrick said his selection was
based on Janos body structure and the
drive and ambition he displayed dur-
ing the demonstration, plus hes a
good-looking dog.
Ive known for two months that Ill
Jano is the newest addition to the Paulding County Sheriffs Office staff.
Jano, originally from Czechoslovakia, arrived last week and will begin a 14-
week training program with handler Deputy Gary Deitrick. Jano was purchased
with donations from local businesses and citizens.
ANTWERP The Antwerp
Village Council met on
Monday evening, Sept. 16.
The target date for the opening
of the Dollar General store was
announced, funds for phase
two for the safe routes to
school program have been ap-
proved, and the passing of an
ordinance allowing the village
to charge up to 5 percent of
cable sales as a franchise fee
was presented.
Several items of interest for
the village were part of Village
Administrator Sara Keerans
Keeran reported that the in-
stallation of the storm drain for
the new Dollar General Store
was completed across Erie
Street (S.R. 49). Target date for
the opening of the store is Oct.
Funds for the second phase
of the Safe Routes to School
have been approved in the
amount of $187,000. The main
portion of phase two will be on
Harmon Street between East
Canal Street and the school.
There is not enough right-
of-way to construct the side-
walks and therefore a right-of-
way survey will need to be
provided in order to know
proper location of the side-
walks, said Keeran.
A motion was made and
unanimously passed to enter
into a contract with
Poggemeyer doing the survey
work at a cost of $7,600.
A motion by Larry Ryan,
seconded by Jan Reeb to ac-
cept the new health insurance
premium at a cost of $7,149.66
per month was approved.
Keeran noted the annual pre-
mium is lower than the previ-
ous contract.
The village received a re-
fund from the Ohio
Department of Transportation
for the amount of $7,690.73.
The refund came as a result of
a deposit for the estimated cost
of casing pipes under Road 33
and County Road 43 during
the construction of US 24.
There have been several wa-
terline breaks along West
Washington Street during the
extreme dry weather.
According to Keeran, the line
will need to be replaced in the
next couple of years.

Antwerp is scheduled from 5-
6:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26.

PAULDING The inability to read at a
functional level in todays society leaves mil-
lions of people at economic and sociological
disadvantages that are almost impossible to
overcome. Look at some of these facts sur-
rounding illiteracy:
The number of U.S. adults who cannot
read equals 32 million, or 14 percent of the
The number of U.S. adults who read
below the fifth grade level (functionally illit-
erate) equals 48 million, or 21 percent of the
In the U.S., 75 percent of the people who
receive food stamps perform at the lowest two
levels of literacy. This also relates to the fact
that 90 percent of all high school dropouts
end up on welfare.
Two-thirds of U.S. students who cannot
read proficiently by the fourth grade end up in
jail or on welfare.
Over 70 percent of all U.S. prison inmates
cannot read above the fourth grade level.
Some states still use the reading levels of ele-
mentary school children to predict how much
prison space will be needed in the future.
Almost 85 percent of juveniles in the U.S.
court system are functionally illiterate.
Children born to illiterate parents are
more likely to be illiterate.
Girls between the ages of 16 to 19 years
old who live at or below the poverty line and
have below average literacy skills are six
times more likely to have a child out of wed-
lock than girls with average reading ability.
Low literacy rates lead directly to costs to
the health insurance industry of $70 million
per year.
After a while, numbers can sometimes run
together and become a mass of confusion.
With that in mind, lets look at a couple of the
above figures and boil them down to every-
day concepts.
If you are sitting at a table with four other
adults, one of you cannot read above the
fourth grade level.
According to the American Library
Association, Prose Literacy is the ability to
comprehend and use continuous text such as
editorials, news articles, or instruction manu-
als. One out of seven U.S. adults cannot per-
form this function (14%).
Document Literacy is the ability to com-
prehend and use non-continuous texts such as
job applications, payroll forms, maps, or food
and drug labels. One out of nine U.S. adults
cannot perform this function (12%).
Quantitative Literacy is the ability to use
and identify formulas within a text such as
balancing a checkbook or calculating tax or a
tip. Two out of nine U.S. adults cannot per-
form this function (22%).*
The Read One Program began in 2011 in
nearby Van Wert County and has seen tremen-
dous community growth in just two years.
Started with the idea of stressing the impor-
tance of stamping out illiteracy for individu-
als and the community, it coincided with
October being named National Book Month
and was designed to bring attention to reading
during the month in the hope the focus would
remain on reading the rest of the year as well.
The program will call for Paulding County
residents to read at least one book during the
month and then to send the Progress the name
of the book and the author. We will print in
the first week of November the list of the
books that were read during October (the
name of the reader is not published). These
can include fiction, nonfiction, Young Adult,
or just as importantly books read to chil-
dren. Right now four other newspapers and li-
braries across northwest Ohio have agreed to
adopt the Read One Program.
Detailed information will be in the
Paulding County Progress next week about
how to participate in the Read One Program.
We encourage everyone to take the time to
show the importance of literacy by reading at
least one book in October.

Village Council met Monday,
Sept. 16 and heard a proposal
from county Commissioner
Tony Zartman and county
Prosecuting Attorney Joe
Zartman and Burkard pre-
sented council with a propos-
al regarding the now-vacant
car lot next to Hometown
Pizza, north of the village of-
fices and police station.
Zartman stated that the com-
missioners had purchased the
lot to provide parking for
county employees and any-
one having business at the
The issue at the meeting
was the 20-foot strip, which is
village-owned property, along
one side of the commission-
ers newly acquired property.
The village purchased this
strip of land a few years ago
to help with the installation of
the sewer lines.
The commissioners plan to
have the county engineer sur-
vey the property and draw up
plans to pave it next year.
Zartman proposed that if the
village would give the county
an easement on the 20-foot
strip, the county would pave
and maintain it along with the
rest of their proposed parking
Council decided to bring
this proposal to a council
committee of the whole meet-
ing at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday,
Sept. 24. Council also will be
discussing sidewalks along
the new Herb Monroe

reported to council that the
plans for planting trees at the
Lela McGuire Jeffery Park by
the Paulding Youth Ball
Associations was reviewed
and approved. The plan was
developed with the help of the

gave the ball association a do-
nation of $100.

The board approved over-
seeding the outfields of the
ball park.
There was discussion re-
garding adding three soccer
fields to Jeffery Park and
plans were made to have a
more detailed meeting at a fu-
ture date.
Council would have heard
the third reading of Ordinance
1467-13, but it was tabled due
to some rewording regarding
snow blades on the front of
four-wheelers as proposed by
Trausch. The wording issue
involves the requirement of a
vendors license to use a four-
wheeler for plowing snow in
the village. Trausch pointed
out that there are a number of
people who used their four-
wheelers to plow out their
own drives as well as help
some neighbors or friends
with snow removal and do
not have a vendors license
because it is not a business.
Village solicitor Mike
Jones agreed to rewrite the or-
dinance and have it ready for
councils review next week.

The Melrose United

at the corner of Paulding and
State streets in Melrose. The

Oooo.......white bucks
players and band people.
At half, we lined up on the
south end of the field and
slopped mud grass clippings all
over each other as our white
bucks immediately turned a dirty
brown, laden with lumps of wet
Hoosier soil on the red soles of
the shoes.
On another occasion, we
marched in Woodburn Days on
a hot July afternoon, one in
which the bank thermometer on
Main Street read 95. For almost
a mile of melting tar and sticky
stones, we marched from the
Woodburn Park to the parking
lot of the old Methodist Church.
We couldnt read our music, be-
cause sweat poured across our
eyes, blocking any hope of see-
ing the music on the lyres
clipped on our uniforms.
At the end of the parade, over
a hundred band members of
Bernes Big Blue Band plopped
on to seats in the school bus, took
off the their coats and opted to
take naps in their fatigue rather
than enjoy free rides at the carni-
Keeping white bucks clean
was a challenge during marching
band days
I can feel it as though it were
yesterday, especially during the
hot and sticky days of a few days
ago, a wool band uniform, heavy
hat, complete with plume, white
shirt, tight necktie and the infa-
mous white buck shoes that
seemed to attract rain storms and
street messes with every stomp
of the foot.
Marching in the high school
band in the late 1950s and early
1960s was anything but comfort-
able, especially in summer pa-
rades and early fall football
In our little town, football was
just new in town. The school
transformed farm ground into a
football field that was surrounded
by corn fields and laid out on a
bed of Indiana clay and dirt. The
first few years, while war was
going on between team cleats,
band shoes and grass trying to
cover the new athletic field, the
muddy field often won out.
I can remember one Saturday
afternoon (there were no lights
around the field at that time)
when it was 48 degrees with a
heavy, cold blowing rain at game
time. But that didnt stop the
players from taking on the oppo-
nent and it wasnt going to stop
the band from marching at half-
We were soaked and chilled
during the first half as we waited
for our half-time performance.
Admittedly, the only ones at the
game were the parents of the
In our era, perhaps the most
well-known celebrity who wore
white bucks (short for buck-
skins) was Pat Boone, who be-
came famous when white bucks
were all he had to wear. Many
years later, after his final (66th)
hit recording in 1966, he was de-
clared a millionaire over many
times, but it was still the white
bucks that he opted to wear
when he took the stage for per-
Perhaps one of the most mem-
orable white buck days occurred
in my senior fall in high school
when our band was honored to
be invited to Purdue Band Day
at West Lafayette, Ind. Many
bands from around the state were
invited to perform during a half-
time show lined with band mem-
bers from goal post to goal post
and beyond. There they were,
hundreds of wool uniforms and
white bucks, ready to march on
to the field in 90 heat.
As we stood in place, waiting
for the signal to march on to the
field, there was a huge crashing,
boom, about two rows behind
me. There, totally unresponsive
for a few seconds, was our bass
drum player, totally passed out
with the drum vibrating on his
stomach and white bucks stick-
ing straight out, a victim of the
heat and hot wool uniform.
Within a minute he was re-
vived, but I will never forget the
sound of that collapsing drum, as
I knelt down and grabbed my
shoestrings, tightening the grip of
my white bucks for the journey
on to the field.
DONATE TO FAIR BUILDING PROJECT Paulding County 4-H Advisory Committee presented
$10,000 to the Livestock Building Fund, administered by the Paulding County Area Foundation. From
left are Roy Klopfenstein, president of Paulding County 4H Advisory Committee; Lisa McClure, exec-
utive director, Paulding County Area Foundation; Tim Santo, advisory committee treasurer; and Staci
Hiler, Paulding County 4-H program assistant. The Livestock Building Fund was established for the
building and maintenance of three livestock barns, located on the Paulding County Fairground. The
balance of the fund is currently at $208,000, just short of the $250,000 estimated cost of the project.
The continued support of the county is greatly appreciated.

That ball is going,
going, gone!
Baseball was something I began liking as a small child and I
liked it to the point that I began saving my paper route money to
buy a baseball glove. Not just any glove, but a glove that was
like the one worn by Bullet Bob Feller. I listened to Indians
announcer Jimmy Dudley as Feller pitched his last game in
1956 and I knew that I wanted
to play baseball and be pitcher
Bullet Bill Sherry. The clos-
est I ever got to that dream was
to catch a couple of throws
from pitcher Doug Bair in a lit-
tle league game in Oakwood a
few years later.
When my wife and I mar-
ried, I learned very quickly that there was no team like the De-
troit Tigers and as we were driving to some event or to her
parents home in Clyde we listened to Ernie Harwell The
Voice of the Tigers many times on the car radio as he would
yell out over the airwaves, Tiger fans, that ball is going, going,
gone; another home run for Stormin Norman Cash! My
wifes sister was a diehard Al Kaline fan. These two sisters
loved baseball and enjoyed many an afternoon at Tiger Stadium
or in their living room watching Tiger baseball with their father.
It was the late summer of 1984 when during a family outing,
my cousin Doug Bair told me, If you come up to Detroit to see
a game I would like to do something with you after the game.
My wife told her sister and in disbelief they arranged for a trip
to a Detroit Tiger baseball game. Early in the game I gave an
usher a note for Doug, telling him we were at the game; I, too,
was somewhat skeptical. About the end of the eighth inning, the
usher came up to me and asked if all four of us were going or
was it just me. I told him that all four of us would like to say hi
to Doug.
Game over! The usher came back and said, Lets go so we
followed him for what seemed to be a long way down to a long
corridor and finally stopped in front of a big door. The usher
told the man at the door that we wanted to see Doug Bair, the
door closed and it seemed like forever before it opened again
and Doug walking out and said, Lets go in, it will be quieter
and we can talk.
We went in and immediately I was aware that this was the De-
troit Tigers locker room and the team was in the room to the left
eating supper following the game. Several team members walked
by as we talked, each one carrying a drink and a plate full of food.
There are things that happen in life that are unusual, sometimes
unexpected, even out of our comfort zone and it is my opinion
that as we remember these special times we bring back some of
the luster, awe or uncertainty of that bygone moment that helped
make us who we are and we should savor the thoughts about that
bygone time.
I dont know who will play in the World Series this year, but I
hope to see you in church this Sunday; we might have something
in common and maybe I will share some more of this life adven-

A Penny For
Your Thoughts....
By: Nancy Whitaker
I cannot think of anyone
who does not like music. We
all like different kinds of
music genres and for me
music has always been a sol-
ace, an energizer, and a pick-
I basically cut my teeth
on gospel music and learned
to play the piano from some
old time gospel singers and
musicians. They took time
with me, taught me different
chords and how to keep time.
I also learned how to play
chords on the guitar and when
I was about 15, I was intro-
duced to what is now referred
to as old rock and roll.
While a lot of church people
were calling it the devils
music, I fell in love with
Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis,
Fabian and Chubby Checker.
I would take my guitar up-
stairs, strap it around my
neck, look in the mirror and
do my best to wiggle like
Elvis. Then I would run
downstairs to the parlor and
Grandmas piano and try and
pound out a little Jerry Lee
Lewis music. I would even
practice putting my leg up in
the air and playing the piano
keys with my feet.
I am a big fan of the old
time country songs. They all
talk about drinking, cheating,
gambling, loving and fight-
ing. Each one almost tells a
They say that music is
good for the soul. Is it? My
personal answer is, Yes.
Just stop and think about it.
Music is the language of
the soul. It is a universal lan-
guage in which we can all
speak to each other. Its the
ultimate form of communica-
tion, breaks down barriers
and brings people together.
Music captures emotions like
even the most precious words
Music makes you feel;
music is a healthy way of con-
veying every form of emotion
from sadness to happiness,
from anger to peace, from de-
pression to elation.
There is not a better to way
in the world to capture and ex-
press your feelings than
through music. As the old say-
ing goes, music is what feel-
ings sound like.
When I feel lonely, my fa-
vorite song to listen to is, Are
You Lonesome Tonight? by
the one and only Elvis. His ren-
dition always makes me cry.
When I am feeling happy, I
may burst out singing, Happi-
est Girl In the Whole USA by
Donna Fargo or You Are My
When I feel lovey, I like
hearing the song, I Cant Stop
Loving You.
When I feel like dancing, the
song I like is Johnny Be
And then, one of my all time
favorite gospel songs to listen
to and play is, How Great
Thou Art and my mamas
very favorite hymn, Ill Fly
There is so much music in
the world and so much more
just waiting to be made.
What kind of music do you
like to listen to? Do you re-
member the music of your gen-
eration? Do you believe that
music helps us express our
feelings? Let me know and Ill

In The
Whats in and whats out?
It started out so well. The
spring and then the summer
brought regular rains and the
gardens never looked so good.
Seeds germinated, new plants
grew by leaps and bounds, and
I started thinking that this sum-
mer would be different than so
many before it.
Then the rain stopped. Or it
went around us; it can be such
a tease sometimes. But here we
are, so much like last year,
wondering once again why I
try to grow things like hy-
drangeas, ligularias and can-
nas. Theyre so darn thirsty.
I said earlier this year that if
I saw a plant in my garden
struggling, it was outta here. If
a plant cant grow well with
plenty of rain, then Im sure not
going to baby it along when the
skies dry up. This time I really
mean it.
Ill keep my hydrangeas
(most of them), and Ill simply
grow the cannas in the little
garden ponds next year, but the
Ligularia is going to go away.
And Im going to take note of
what did really, really well and
Im going to grow more of
them. What are those anyway?
Coreopsis, or tickseed, just
love my gardens. I can put
them in shade, even though
they love full sun, and they still
thrive. It doesnt seem to matter
if I miss watering them, they
still bloom like crazy. The
species is native here and Ive
not only heaving in the winter,
but some are summer heavers
as well. Ill continue to grow
their cousins, the tiarellas, be-
cause they give a similar fo-
liage look and they handle the
dry heat much better.
While I love the other-
worldly look of the blooms on
mountain bluet (Centaurea
montana), especially
Amethyst in Snow, it strug-
gles for some reason in my gar-
den. Just when I think its
going to gasp its last breath, it
starts growing and blooming
again. Ive grown weary of its
fickle behavior.
In spite of buying another
Colorflash Astilbe last month
(I really do love that one), my
other ones are coming out.
Theyre water hogs and they
get crispy edges if you dont
keep things moist at their feet.
Colorflash gets a bye because
it has such amazing foliage
color, especially in fall.
This end-of-year evaluation
is all part of my master plan of
gardening smarter, not harder.
This time I really mean it. Just
dont show me any cool, new
plants that like it wet, and Ill
be fine.
Read Kylee Baumles blog,
Our Little Acre at www.ourlit- and on Facebook
tleAcre. Contact her at Pauld-
seen it growing wild in an un-
cultivated field just south of us,
so maybe thats why they do so
well for me.
The perennial Artemisia
Silver Mound did amazing, as
usual, so next year Im going to
expand my plantings to include
other cultivars than the single
one I have. I like their silvery-
gray color too.
And sedums. Even though
Ive got a lot of them already,
there are so many more that I
could have. Theyre succulents
and theyre the closest thing to
a desert plant were going to
get here (except for prickly
pear cactus). There are tall
ones, creeping ones, and plenty
of in-between ones. Dry heat
are them. Gimme more.
So what else gets taken out
besides the Ligularia? Ill be
ridding the garden of some of
the heucheras (coral bells), be-
cause they have a bad habit of

Susan Hill Pieper,
Library Director
I had the opportunity recently to handle almost
every book in our genealogy collection. We have
added additional shelving for this important col-
lection and I was shifting the existing collection
to the new shelves. Our local Paulding County
Chapter of the Ohio Genealogy Society has built
an impressive collection over the past few
decades. The library is honored to partner with
the society to supply space and a home for these
important resources. We welcome visitors from
throughout the United States while they search
their Paulding County roots.
One of the beautiful sets in the collection is
the 23-volume Official Roster of Ohio Soldiers,
Sailors and Marines: World War 1917-18. This
roster was compiled in 1926 under the direction
of then Governor, Vic Donahey; Secretary of
State, Thad H. Brown; and Adjunct General,
Frank D. Henderson.
The set lists a comprehensive roster of all
Ohio soldiers, sailors and marines who entered
the service of the United States in the war of
1917-1919 with the Central Powers of Europe.
The publication was authorized by an act of the
83rd Ohio General Assembly on May 7, 1919
so it took about six years to complete, having fi-
nally being finished in 1926.
The records of the Ohio men and women were
recorded on 263,000 cards kept in the custody of
the War Department. All men and women who
volunteered, elected to take a turn in the draft or
serve in whatever manner were included. Also
were the 6,800 printed in bold type in the set
who went out not to return alive.
As I was shifting this set, I opened up the first
volume (the names are in alphabetical order) to
see if I could find anyone from Paulding County.
I found an entry right away. I was able to use the
legend at the front of the book to determine what
the abbreviations stood for. In this case the entry
was for: Alva J. Abbott. He was a colored man
from Latty. He entered the National Army in
Paulding, Ohio on Aug. 3, 1918. He was born in
Latty on Aug. 4, 1892. He served in 40 Company
10 Training Battalion 158 Depot Brigade to Aug.
27, 1918; Company C 813 Pioneer Regiment In-
fantry to discharge. Private Defensive Sector.
American Expeditionary Forces Sept. 15, 1918
to July 13, 1919; honorably discharged July 21,
If a soldier had been gassed one of the
many horrors of that first World War was the
trench warfare and poison gas used that fact was
also reported in the entry. What made me take
pause was that this publication was published
when the war, now known as World War I, was
fresh in peoples minds. This war impacted Pauld-
ing County citizens. And, since my world is all
about the library and the centennial celebration, I
cant help but wonder what comfort the local new
public library (having opened in 1916) provided
in those trauma-filled years of the First World War.
Visit the main historic Carnegie library in
Paulding and spend some time perusing the won-
derful resources in the genealogy and local history
collection. It will give you great pride and put
things in perspective about our world today and
of those who have fought in the past to keep
democracy alive. See you at the library!

Panthers outlast Archers, 48-30
Coach Kyle Coleman picks up first career win in county showdown
ANTWERP The Pauld-
ing Panthers blitzed the
Antwerp Archers Friday
night in a cross-county show-
down at Archer Field 48-30.
The Panthers were looking
for their first win of the sea-
son while Antwerp was hop-
ing for a two-game winning
streak. When it was all set-
tled, it was the lack of tack-
ling that gave the Panthers the
hard-earned win its first
since 2010.
Following the game, a dis-
appointed Archer coach Drew
Altimus said, It just comes
down to tackling and tonight
we couldnt tackle. I guess
tonight they had the better
The inability to tackle was
evident in how the Panthers
made their way through the
Archer defensive line. The
one-two punch of senior
quarterback Julian Salinas
and freshman running back
Preston Ingol kept the Archer
defense backpedaling all
Salinas totaled 237 rushing
yards on 11 carries including
touchdown runs of 80 and 56
yards. Ingol, an impressive
speedster in the Panther back-
field, riddled off 158 yards on
11 carries including a trio of
touchdown runs of 45, 2, and
63 yards.
Following the contest, first-
year head coach Kyle Cole-
man said to his team, Its
right back to work tomorrow.
This is too good of a feeling
to pass up.
Coleman, who also col-
lected his first career win as a
head coach, was excited
about the outcome.
I like winning and tonight
was just a culmination of a lot
of hard work. Our team is
getting better and No. 27
(Ingol) is a special player.
After Antwerps opening
series stalled, the Panthers
needed just four plays,
capped off by Salinas, who
wove his way through the
Archer defense for six points.
Corbin Edwards was good on
the extra point for a 7-0 Pan-
ther lead with 4:41 remaining
in the first quarter.
Early in the second period,
Antwerp began to move the
ball and used an eight play
drive covering 45 yards to
pick up their first touchdown.
Senior Tyler Messman bulled
his way up the middle for five
yards. Trailing 7-6 and after
burning a time out, the
Archers went for the two-
point conversion and the
early lead. However, as the
ball carrier crossed the goal
line, it was ruled he didnt
have control of the ball.
Paulding wasted little time
and answered with their sec-
ond score a 45-yard run by
Ingol at the 7:45 mark. The
Edwards extra point was
good, making it 14-6.
I was really happy at the
way our offensive line
played. We have simplified
things recently and the O-line
is catching on and playing
much better football, said
Coach Coleman.
Still trailing by a single
touchdown, Antwerps quar-
terback Derek Smalley engi-
neered a drive to the Paulding
11 yard line. Facing a critical
third down play, Coach Al-
timus called on sophomore
Bevin Hall, who lofted an
endzone pass to his brother
Bryce for an 11-yard connec-
tion and the Archers still
hanging around trailing 14-
Prior to intermission, an-
other Antwerp defensive
blunder turned costly as
Paulding was driving the ball.
Facing a second and 11, Sali-
nas was found himself in
trouble in the backfield, sur-
rounded by a host of blue and
white defenders and facing a
major loss. However, Salinas
used some fancy footwork to
break free and make his way
for a 40-yard gain to the two
yard line.
That one really hurt us.
We had him surrounded and
couldnt make the play. An-
other missed tackle, said Al-
Paulding finished the drive
with a two-yard sprint by
Ingol, who went untouched in
the endzone.
Following intermission the
Panthers received the ball and
used one play from scrim-
mage to score a 63-yard
scamper by Ingol followed by
the Edwards extra point.
Antwerps offense quickly
gave the Panthers another
score when Edwards picked
off a Smalley pass and re-
turned it 60 yards for six. Ed-
wards tacked on the extra
point and Paulding was in
control 35-14 with 11:32 re-
maining in the third quarter.
Antwerps next possession
was short-lived; however, the
Archers had a nice highlight
when Smalley connected
with Justice Clark over the
middle for a nice 41-yard
gainer. The drive ended when
Smalley and company faced a
fourth and 13 and came up a
yard short on a completed 12-
yard pass to Trenton Copsey.
Taking over at the 17 yard
line, Salinas and Ingol
teamed up carrying the ball
until the 6-foot-1, 190-pound
quarterback knifed his way
through the defense 56 yards
for a touchdown with 4:55 re-
maining. The Edwards PAT
was perfect and the Panthers
were on the prowl, 42-14.
Antwerp put together an
eight-play drive and on the
second play of the fourth pe-
riod Smalley found an open-
ing for a one-yard score. A
successful two-point conver-
sion was good on a pass to
Colton Stout, making the
score 42-22.
Using just over five min-
utes on a five-play drive that
started at midfield, Cameron
Doster, a freshman, ran the
ball three consecutive times
and finished it off with a one-
yard plunge for the Panthers
final score. With 6:23 show-
ing on the clock, Paulding
was on top, 48-22.
Because of the triple op-
tion they run, we spent a lot
of time in preparation for this
game. Antwerp has some
good players and they are
well coached. Now we just
need to get better, continue to
work hard and be competi-
tive, said Coach Coleman.
On Antwerps final posses-
sion, Clark took a pitch out
from Smalley and galloped 23
yards to the outside. A two-
point conversion run by fresh-
man Tyler Mills was good for
the final score, 48-30.
Messman finished with 80
yards rushing while Smalley
threw for 145 yards in 9-of-15
including three interceptions.
Tonight we made some
plays offensively, but it comes
back to our defense. Its all
about wanting to tackle, said

Raiders take big step towards playoff berth
HAVILAND Wayne Trace didnt get
off to a good start in Fridays rivalry game
with visiting Crestview as the Knights took
games opening possession and turned it
into an 11-yard touchdown run by Preston
However, the Raiders dominated the re-
mainder of the opening stanza and never
looked back as Wayne Trace rolled to a 54-
41 victory over the Knights to move to 3-
0 on the season.
Colby Speice and Korbin Showalter
hooked up for touchdown passes of 51, 26
and 27 yards in the opening stanza as
Wayne Trace led 28-7 after one quarter.
Speice also had a one-yard run for a score
in the period while tossing two-point con-
version passes to Tyler Showalter and Jake
This team has the ability to be very po-
tent, commented Raider head coach Bill
Speller. We can put five guys out there
that can run and give us the opportunity for
a big play. That makes it tough for teams
to defend.
Jared Sherry opened the second quarter
scoring as the Raiders widened the lead to
However, Crestview would make a run
just before halftime.
The Knights scored on a one-yard run
by Zaleski before Malcolm Oliver returned
a Raider fumble 21-yards for another
touchdown to get Crestview within 34-20
at halftime.
On their opening possession of the sec-
ond half, the Knights were unable to move
the ball and Wayne Trace took advantage.
The Raiders again found the end zone
on a 19-yard scoring strike from Speice to
Sherry to push the margin to 40-20.
We talked about overcoming adver-
sity, Speller continued. We didnt let the
momentum go and we were able to an-
swer. There have been times in the past
where we wouldnt have done that and
these kids wouldnt allow that.
Speice hooked up with Arend on a two-
yard touchdown toss to push the lead to 48-
20 before an 80-yard scoring strike
between Speice and Korbin Showalter
concluded the Raider scoring.
Its a big win for us, Speller con-
cluded. I am so proud of this team.

County seems a natural to Netherlands visitors
Dirk and Trudy Regter, along with their helpers, Dennis Jonk and Barry Vrijbloed, stopped at
the Payne Church of God Campground on Saturday evening. The couple, from the Netherlands
are visiting and supporting various projects ran by SOS Childrens Villages.
Feature Writer
When Dirk and Trudy Regter
drove their 1915 Ford Model T
into the Church of God camp-
ground southwest of Payne on
Saturday evening, the Paulding
County countryside looked
quite natural to them.
Its not that much different
than what weve had at home,
said Regter. After all, the
Netherlands has had windmills
since the 1600s.
The Regters chose the camp-
grounds as a lodging place on
Saturday morning when they
left Richmond, Ind. They were
on their way to Auburns famous
antique car museum and then to
Detroit to see the Henry Ford
exhibits. Their brief visit to
Paulding County was part of a
50,000 mile, two-year tour, in
support of the worldwide work
of SOS Childrens Villages, a
network of over 250 orphanages
to care for orphan children
around the world.
It was in the summer of 2012
when the Regters, along with
two helpers, began their tour.
The first leg of this trip took
them from Amsterdam, Holland
to Cape Town, South Africa,
15,000 miles in 160 days.
The North American part of
their tour this year has taken
them from Houston, clockwise
to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San
Francisco, Calgary, Thunder
Bay, various parts of the Mid-
west, Detroit and New York. In
October they will visit the
AACA Fall Meet in Hershey, Pa.
Then, in 2014 and 2015, the
trip will continue through Cen-
tral and South America, New
Zealand, Australia, Indonesia,
China and Central Europe, be-
fore returning to the Nether-
This is a fantastic journey
with a special goal,
explained Regter on Saturday
evening. We are visiting and
supporting various projects run
by the international childrens
aid organization, SOS Chil-
drens Villages. By means of a
worldwide sponsorship cam-
paign, we are helping to ensure
that children who are on their
own will again get a loving
Regter, an architect by trade,
emphasized that the entire trip is
self-funded; all money is do-
nated to SOS Childrens Vil-
lages. So far, the couple has
collected $35,000 toward the or-
phan homes.
I am a lucky guy that I have
the opportunity to do this for
children, said Regter. It is very
necessary to help this new gen-
eration, to give them a lovely
Regters wife, Trudy (Ro-
orda), his bride of 41 years, has
the same passion for children
around the world.
It is so special to travel all
over the world together with my
husband, said Trudy Regter.
We are having a beautiful trip.
We are doing all of this for or-
phan children. We want them to
have a good life, to go to school,
and learn how to live.
Trudy said that while travel-
ing through Africa, they visited
five SOS projects.
Its so very special to meet
up with people when you have
no home, Regter said. We
meet so many people who are
friendly and hospitable.
Ironically, on Saturday, mem-
bers of St. Jacobs Church in
Payne were having an all-day
campout at the campgrounds.
Members of the church were
able to meet with their surprise
guests and pay for lodging for
the travelers.
Regter said that they usually
sleep in tents and make their
own food. They try to be as sav-
ing as possible in order to save
funding for the orphanages.
Another special part of the
project is taking two assistants
with them on four week stints.
Two young people, Dennis
Jonk and Barry Vrijbloed, are
traveling with them at this
time. The young assistants help
in driving supplies and setting
up and taking down camp. It
also gives the assistants an op-
portunity to see parts of the
This my vacation for the
year. I support the Childrens
Villages. It is for a good pur-
pose, said Jonk. I drive the
cars, take photos and do video
reports of the trip from the
website. I get to see America
and a lot of the world.
America is beautiful, a big
country. Everything here is big.
There are very nice people here
in America, continued Jonk.
Its wonderful to see how peo-
ple care so much for the needy.
They do a good job listening to
what we are doing.
Im very fond of Dirk; I
know him from work, said
Vrijbloed. He and his wife are
so committed to this. Its really
an eye-opener to see how peo-
ple live in different countries.
People in this county have
been so friendly with us. We
will remember this county in
America that had windmills
just like home, said Regter.

more about the project or fol-
lowing the trip can do so by

County purchases
parking lot
Feature Writer
PAULDING Paulding County commissioners have author-
ized the purchase of parking lot land at the southwest corner
of Perry and Main streets in downtown Paulding. The land has
been purchased from the Stykemain Chevrolet agency.
The initial purchase of the property is to provide parking for
county employees with the intent of lightening the load of
parking around the courthouse square.
This is going to be converted into a parking lot for county
employees, said Commissioner Tony Zartman. We intend to
utilize parking for public employees during courthouse busi-
ness hours and then open it up to the general public otherwise.
Zartman said that the hope is to start making improvements
on the parking lot this winter. The engineers office will deal
with drainage needs and level the land. Then, paving will occur
during next years pouring season.
Commissioner Roy Klopfenstein said that the parking lot
will also be available to those who utilize courthouse services
with such usage as attending court sessions or visiting offices
on official county business.
In the process, commissioners said that they hope to open
up parking spaces around the courthouse square and give
closer access to downtown businesses for patrons looking for
close parking spots.
Weve got a couple of restaurants downtown now that can
utilize more parking spaces, said Klopfenstein.
In the end, we hope that this will make an economic impact
on the downtown area, not only because of close access to
businesses, but because we would like to draw more businesses
into the downtown area, Zartman said. By improving park-
ing accessibility, we hope that more businesses will want to
open up downtown retail opportunities.
We hope that this gives the chamber of commerce some-
thing to use as a strength in trying to entice businesses to locate
downtown, added Zartman.

Progress seeking info
on historical churches
The Paulding County
Progress is seeking informa-
tion on historical churches in
the county.
In many settlements, a
church was one of the first
buildings constructed. A lot of
times, church services were
held in a home.
What is the oldest church or
congregation still holding serv-
ices in Paulding County? How
old is the church you attend?
Many churches in our county
are over 100 years old and their
walls can tell many stories.
If you have any information
about historical churches,
please call Nancy at 419-399-

Vantage board reviews
its first report card
By Ed Gebert
DHI Correspondent
VAN WERT The Vantage Career Center
Board met Thursday, Sept. 5 to go over the
districts first-ever report card and look at the
just-started school year.
Superintendent Staci Kaufman briefly re-
viewed the Vantage report card with the board
members. It is the first year the Ohio Depart-
ment of Education has issued report cards to
any joint vocational school district. Only three
letter grades were given. Two As were given
for Vantages four-year and five-year gradua-
tion rates, and a C for post-program outcomes.
It shows that 92.8 percent of our students
were placed in careers, military, or college;
however, six months after graduation we
could only confirm 78.6 percent, Kaufman
Kaufman went on to explain that the district
has had a hard time getting some graduates
who had been placed to confirm their where-
abouts six to nine months afterward. That
brought the outcomes grade down from a B to
a C. She noted that if the placement percent-
age would have been 93.0 percent rather than
92.8, the outcome grade would have been an
A that was brought down to a B by the lack of
check-ins half a year later.
Were already working on how to improve
that, and I think contacting students sooner out
than waiting until six to nine months after the
graduate to contact them will certainly help
us, stated Kaufman.
The report card also showed that Vantage is
doing a superior job in using district funds for
classroom purposes. Of 25 similar-sized ca-
reer-technical schools, Vantage ranked number
two for using district funds to teach.
Kaufman pointed out, Were doing extremely
well dedicating our finances toward the class-
room. We are spending the majority of our
money for instructional purposes in the class-
room. We like how that came out, and we dont
see that reversing anytime soon.
Adult education director Pete Pritchard re-
ported that he is in the midst of completing the
accreditation process while classes are set to
begin next week in the medical assistant pro-
gram, and the police academy. Oct. 16 is the pro-
jected starting date for classes from Northwest
State Community College in the industrial main-
tenance, precision machining, and wind turbine
programs at the Vantage facility. The school is
also working toward setting up an internship pro-
gram which will allow selected students to work
while earning education credits.
Its one of the things that the state has been
pushing for a long period of time, and we think
we have found a way of doing this that will be
cost-effective for the employer and will give
people skills that will put them to work while
getting them 29 semester hours and putting them
on a career path, said Prichard.
High school classes have already begun for
the school year at Vantage, and director Ben
Winans reported that the beginning of the year
has been successful.
Weve had a great start to the school year,
he said. Staff and students have returned and
things are progressive very well.
In other items, Kaufman updated the mem-
bers on member eligibility and the possibility
of moving to three-year terms on the board in
the future. She also noted that the company
that is to do upkeep of the solar array area has
arranged for lawn maintenance, but as yet, the
work has not started. She stated that she will
be keeping a check on the work. A public web-
site to allow anyone to monitor energy savings
for the district with the array is in the testing
mode. That site may be public as soon as next
A number of supplemental contracts for in-
structors and other staff members were also
approved by the board on Thursday.
The next meeting board meeting will be
held at 7:30 p.m Thursday, Oct. 3 in the dis-
trict conference room.
