Bob Beck Benefit Brings Out Overwhelming Stryker Fire House Celebrates New Opening, Community Support In Montpelier Hosts Halloween Costume Judging Event

FULL HOUSE ... A packed house prevailed at the Bobby Beck Benefit on Saturday, November 2nd. By: Mark Mercer THE VILLAGE REPORTER MONTPELIER. The Bob Beck Benefit, held to support Bob and his family as he fights Colon Cancer, was held November 2 in the Gillette Building at the Williams County Fairgrounds. The event brought out hundreds of members of the community in support of the Beck family and the evening was a tremendous success for all involved. It is estimated over 600 attended the fundraiser. The evening was a great demonstration of friends, family and community coming together to help the Beck family, and was a reminder of small town American values. Many in attendance were delighted at the positive turnout for the event. Attendees at the event were treated to an evening of great food, great music and plenty of entertainment. The event included a hog roast and tables of great food, along with plenty of deserts. The highlight of the evening was an auction with over 85 donated items, along with a silent auction consisting of several tables of items up for bid. Also, throughout the evening, support bracelets and T-Shirts supporting Bobby were sold. The fundraiser also held a raffle, with over 300 tickets sold for a chance at a 12 Gauge Citori Shotgun. The raffle winner was Jim Skelton from Fremont, Indiana, who went home with a very nice reminder from the evening. All who attended and supported the Beck family were the real winners on the evening! Bob and his wife Amy were surprised by the tremendous outpouring of support throughout the evening. The number of friends, family, and community members who showed up at the event was a wonderful demonstration of the small town virtue of friends helping friends and neighbors helping neighbors. Bobby stated “the number of people who showed up and the warm messages of support this evening is a great blessing for me and my family.” Bob’s wife Amy said after the completion of the event “I'm not sure there are words to adequately describe tonight! I can't imagine going up against cancer alone...after seeing and feeling what friends, family and community can do, we feel invincible! We are humbled and so very thankful!” All proceeds from tonight’s fundraiser will be donated to Bobby and his family. Mark Mercer can be reached at publisher@thevillagereporter.com

OPEN HOUSE FUN ... Fun Night For All At The Open House at the Stryker Fire Department. By: Mark Mercer THE VILLAGE REPORTER STRYKER - The Stryker Fire Department hosted an open house event on Saturday, November 26. The open house was held to celebrate the new facility and show it to the community. The Fire Department completed their move to the new building on October 14 of this year, and the open house was a thank you to the community for their support and for the new facility. In addition to introducing the new facility to the community, the open house also was a pre-Halloween treat for parents and Trick-Or-Treaters before hitting the streets and filling the kid’s candy bags. The Fire department also this year revived a tradition held in Stryker in the past-a Halloween Costume Judging Contest. According to Lt. Larry Davis, the Fire Department intends to host this event annually, as it is a popular event with the kids in the community. This year’s contest winners were Calista Blevens (1st place), Brooke Wright (2nd place) and Morgan Bybee (3rd place). The Fire Department open house was a tremendous success this year, and the members of the department enjoyed providing free food and entertainment for the kids and parents who attended, and they look forward to continuing this event in the future.

October 2013: Slightly Soggier Than Normal, Slightly Warmer Than Normal
By: Timothy Kays THE VILLAGE REPORTER Despite a soggy and cold exit, the month of October 2013 was wetter and slightly warmer than normal. Reflecting upon the data gathered from their KFWA monitoring station at Fort Wayne International Airport, the National Weather Service Forecast Office in North Webster, Indiana's (KIWX) said that, "October 2013 had a very warm start, with the four of the first five days of the month having an average temperature of 13 degrees or more above normal. After near normal temperatures through the middle part of the month, a pattern shift brought well below normal temperatures to the region beginning on the 22nd. This shift helped bring mixed precipitation over a four day period, with some areas south of Fort Wayne receiving their first accumulating snowfall of the season." An interesting statistic was noted from the huge swing in temperatures. KIWX reported that there were, "...only ten days between 80 degree temperatures and freezing temperatures. The last 80 degree day of the month occurred on the 12th, and the first freeze of the season occurred on the 22nd. The highest temperature of the month was 85 degrees which occurred on the fourth, and the lowest temperature of the month was 28 which occurred on the 25th. Overall, the average temperature for the month of October ended up near normal at Fort Wayne...half a degree above the normal of 52.6. This ties as 51st warmest October on record since 1912." The precipitation report from KIWX noted that the month of October was generally dry, with only 1.93 inches of rainfall over the first 30 days of the month. There are 31 days to the month though, and a strong fall storm tracked toward the great lakes region over the 30th and 31st, bringing over an inch of rainfall, and dousing the kids on Halloween. As a result, the total precipitation for the month was 3.66 inches, which is 0.82 inches above normal. "This," according to KIWX, "...ranks as the 21st wettest October on record since 1912. Measurable rainfall fell on 12 days during October, with the greatest 24 hour rainfall total being 1.74 inches which fell on the 30th and 31st." Looking ahead to the month of November the CPC is calling for our area to be normal insofar as temperatures and precipitation. Taking a look further into the future, the CPC is saying that a December warming trend, coupled with normal precipitation levels, may factor into a somewhat less than white Christmas. That however is less that two months away, and we are still working with a science that has proven to be inept on precipitation forecasts two days into the future. As per the normal, just hang in there... we'll be the first to find out. Timothy Kays can be reached at tim@thevillagereporter.com

Pioneer Council Holds October Meeting
By: Kay Raypholtz THE VILLAGE REPORTER

The October 2013 meeting of the Pioneer Village Council was rescheduled for the first Monday of the month rather than its usual date of the second Monday of the month. There was a light agenda, with an ordinance being passed, and approval of a new sign for the village. In his Police Department report, Chief Tim Livengood said that the department had 130 calls for service. Of those, 31 were dispatched, 80 were officer initiated, 5 were by telephone, 12 were walk-in, and 2 were from other agencies. The southeast quadrant of the village remains the busiest, with Sunday as the day of the week with the most activity. There were 15 incident reports. Four of those were for

disorderly conduct, 3 for domestic violence, and 2 for criminal damaging. There were three vehicle accidents, with only property damage. The average response time this month was 0:00:42, and the average time out on a call was 0:14:38. Fire Chief Denny Fackler was not present, and there was no report for the Fire Department. Al Fiser gave the Administrator’s report.

Council members approved a new sign to be erected in Crommer Park. Village youngsters will be happy to know that they can visit with Santa on December 17 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Gazebo. Santa will arrive in style in one of the town’s fire trucks. In the fiscal report, Village Clerk April McMillen gave figure on the AMP-Ohio CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

Fulton County Sheriff’s Office Boogie-Woogie Pianist & Youtube Celebrity With 2.5 Hosted High Visibility Blitz Million Views Performs At The Williams County Library
Sheriff Roy E. Miller announces that the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office conducted a High Visibility Blitz which started Friday, October 25 and ended on October 31, 2013. This High Visibility Blitz was paid from a grant that the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office had received from the Ohio Department of Public Safety. During the dates and times of this grant, deputies worked a total of 36 hours and stopped 34 vehicles, with 11 citations being issued and 27 warnings given to drivers. There was 1 DUI arrest, 7 speed citations, 1 driving under suspension citation, 1 no operator’s license citation and 1 citation issued for fleeing and eluding. Sheriff Miller and his deputies are dedicated to protecting the citizens of Fulton County and the motorists who travel its highways. The grant that was received will allow for extra Deputies to patrol the roadways to enforce the traffic laws that will increase the safety of motorists in the areas that are prone to higher number of serious and fatal crashes.
Today with almost 2.5 million youtube views of past performance footage, Matthew Ball aka The Boogie Woogie Kid, is called “Michigan’s Best” in boogie-woogie, blues, and ragtime piano, and on Friday, November 15th @ 7:00 p.m. he’ll stop by the Williams County Public Library for a FREE family friendly concert of piano fun, with arrangements of American swing classics like Swanee river, The Entertainer, Over the Rainbow, Those were the Days, Bumble Boogie, and many more! Friday, November 15th 2013 @ 7:00 p.m. The Boogie Woogie Kid Matthew Ball in Performance! Williams County Public Library 107 E. High St., Bryan, OH 43506 Admission: FREE Ball’s start in Jazz only began in 2001 after he attended a local boogie-woogie festival. He was so awestruck by the performances there, he left his career as an attorney to become a blues & boogie-woogie performing artist. With a lot of work and a little help from boogie’s hall of famer Bob Seeley, Ball joined the ranks of iconic blues masters in 2005 when headlining at the exclusive Arches Piano Stage in Cincinnati. Since then

he has maintained an active calendar as The Boogie Woogie Kid. Today described as “a rising giant” in the field, Matthew is helping to define a new generation’s contribution to this treasured American tradition. Watch Matthew heat up the keys in these youtube clips: Bumble Bee Boogie - http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=tmM5b4jgijg

Montpelier Village Council Passes Resolution Opposing House Bill 5
By: Kay Raypholtz THE VILLAGE REPORTER The October 28 meeting of the Montpelier Village Council opened with a prayer given by Pastor Hanover of the Montpelier First United Methodist Church. Hanover, new to the area this June, was welcomed by council. Audience member Laura Gray thanked the village for having the sidewalks around Main Street Park completed before the annual Trick-or-Treat event. This had been an issue of concern as completion of the sidewalk project had been delayed due to unforeseen circumstance, and unfinished sidewalks could have been a safety hazard; however, village crews rallied and the sidewalks were completed prior to the event, providing a safe walkway for the activity in the park. She added that the Trick-or-Treating in the park was well attended by both those passing out treats, and the children who sought them. Council member and Tree Commission member Delmar Karnes shared that 34 trees had been planted that week throughout Montpelier. Most of the trees were linden, with some maple. He told council that residents who would like a tree planted on their terrace could call the village to be put on a waiting list. Council set a date for the Budget Meeting for November 4th at 6:00 p.m. This will be a work session only to work on finalizing the budget for 2014. It will be presented at council for approval at a later date. Kurt Roan, Supervisor of Administrative Services said that the village has applied for funding for the Phase 4 sewer separation project. They have been approved for $118,000 for engineering costs, and $993,000 for construction. The project will be put out for bid during the end of December or early January. The estimated cost for the Phase 4 sewer separation is $1.6 million, and the project is scheduled to begin in mid-summer. Council awarded the bid for the Waste Water Treatment Plant Headworks Screen Project to Zachrich Construction who bid $314,870 for the project. Council approved the Utility Delinquent, Door Hanger, and Shut-Off Schedule for December 2013 through December 2014. This schedule is presented each year and voted on for approval. Resolution 1064, a resolution to strongly oppose the passage of HB 5 by the Ohio General Assembly which proposes uniformity measures for municipal income tax in the form of unfunded mandates and a substantial loss of revenue, and declaring an emergency. It was explained that while the village had nothing against uniformity, House Bill 5 would take away any of the control from the village itself, as well as from all other municipalities. It would result in a great loss of revenue to each town and city, to the extent that it would make it extremely difficult for towns to continue to provide services to their residents. All council members, with the exception of Jason Rockey, voted to declare an emergency and approve the resolution. Director of Finance Kelly Hephner was scheduled this week to meet with legislators and present them with the resolution opposing the Bill. Council went into executive session to discuss business and other actions. No action was taken upon their return to open session. The Montpelier Village Council meets the second and fourth Mondays of each month, unless otherwise indicated. Kay Raypholtz may be reached at publisher@thevillagereporter.com

Civil War Music To Be Featured At SAHC Annual Meeting
Mr. Ball says he began playing Civil War era music when he was 12 years old. He has played in a number of different types of groups, folk groups, bluegrass and country bands, square dance bands, and even a Western trio. He says his interest in Civil War music was generated by tunes he learned while in the western trio, and eventually he built a repertoire of songs from the 19th century, both before and during the Civil War period of 1861 to 1865. His interest in the history of the war led to learning about the composers, and the events that led to many of the songs of the period being written and composed. As his knowledge grew, he developed a presentation that explains both why the tunes were written and what was going on in the war at the time. Donald Moody, president of the Muskingum County Civil War Association, said this about Steve Ball, “Steve Ball is a modern troubadour of the American Civil War era. No matter where I have heard him play, be it a reenactment, an indoor gala before hundreds, a civil war roundtable or on the floor of the Ohio Statehouse, Steve and his trusty 1860 Martin 2-20 guitar have never failed to hold all in attendance spellbound as he weaves the songs and events of the American Civil War together into a seamless fabric of its history.” For those who would like to attend the dinner and presentation on November 14, reservations need to be made by November 8 and may be made be sent to the Stryker Area Heritage Council, P.O. Box 180, Stryker, OH 43557 or by making a reservation request online to info@ strykerahc.org

As he makes his presentation, he weaves fascinating tales of the backgrounds of the songs as he also follows the progress of the war. Mr. Ball will be giving his performance on Thursday, November 14, at the Stryker Area Heritage Council’s annual membership meeting in the fellowship

hall of the Stryker United Methodist Church, 301 Cherry Street, Stryker, Ohio. There will be a dinner at 6:00 p.m. that night served by the ladies of the church.

Tim Ryan, Polio Plus District Chairman, spoke to the Stryker Rotary on Tuesday evening as a guest of Reverend Dane Meuschke. Tim told the club that Rotary International has spent over half a billion dollars in the fight against this terrible disease. The work began in the 1950’s fighting polio in the United States, and has expanded to a goal of complete eradication on the planet. This goal has come very close but the last steps have been very illusive. During 2013 the world has seen a setback with more confirmed cases than in previous years. This setback has proven that the mission is worth the cost because polio is very contagious and without preventive steps could surface back INFORMATION PROVIDED in the United States. In

2012 Rotary had only seen reported cases in three countries, but during this year cases have been reported in eight countries. When Rotary goes into an area to vaccinate children six years and under; they also provide education to the community about sanitation, as well as other types of medication. Tim has personally participated in several trips to third world

countries to assist with this vaccination process. He has been visiting clubs to tell the polio story and raise funds working toward this elusive goal of eradication. He also comes with news that all money raised will be doubled by the Gates Foundation. Reverend Dane Meuschke on the Right is pictured with Tim Ryan, Polio Plus Chairman.

The Wauseon Public Library Will Participate In “Snapshot Day: A Day In The Life Of Ohio Libraries”
WAUSEON—The Wauseon Public Library is joining libraries across the state to participate in “Snapshot Day: A Day in the Life of Ohio Libraries” on November 12 to capture and share information about how important academic, public, school, and special libraries and library systems are to the state of Ohio. During the month of November, the Wauseon Public Library will compile statistics, customer comments, photographs, videos, and other details representing a typical day at the library. They will be added to those of other libraries across the state to raise awareness about the important role of libraries in Ohio. The State Library of Ohio invites patrons and visitors to stop in and be a part of this historic day. Libraries are more important than ever to our communities, and library usage is at record levels. We want all the residents of Ohio, and particularly our Ohio lawmakers, to see what a typical day is like for an Ohio library. Adequate state funding is vital to help libraries like ours maintain current programs and services. Reductions in funding make it difficult, and in some cases impossible, to provide new programs and services, purchase new materials, and support the delivery of materials to our patrons from other libraries. This “snapshot” will help us communicate to lawmakers that their constituents, our patrons, rely on us for critical services. Snapshot Day: A Day in the Life of Ohio Libraries is a project of the State Library of Ohio, the Ohio Library Council (OLC), Ohio Public Library Information Network (OPLIN), the Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO), Ohio Library and Information Network (OhioLINK – a consortium of college and university libraries), the Ohio Educational Library Media Association (OELMA), and the Information Network for Ohio Schools (INFOhio). Each year, Ohio libraries will participate in this advocacy effort by collecting photographs, stories, information, and comments to get a snapshot of a typical day in Ohio libraries. All types of libraries are encouraged to participate and showcase what libraries do for Ohio residents. For more information, log onto http:// library.ohio.gov/snapshotday.

WAUSEON—Discover a new science fiction author, Neal Shusterman, at the Wauseon Public Library’s Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Discussion on Monday, November 11 at 6:30 p.m. The group will be discussing “Unwind,” the first book in the Unwind Dystology Series. The book discussion is free and open to everyone. According to the book jacket, “In America after the Second Civil War, the Pro-Choice and Pro-Life armies came to an agreement: The Bill of Life states that human life may not be touched from the moment of conception until a child reaches the age of thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, a parent may choose to retroactively get rid of a child through a process called ‘unwinding.’ Unwinding ensures that the child's life doesn’t ‘technically’ end by transplanting all the organs in the child's body to various recipients. Now a common and accepted practice in society,

troublesome or unwanted teens are able to easily be unwound. With breathtaking suspense, this book follows three teens who all become runaway Unwinds: Connor, a rebel whose parents have ordered his unwinding; Risa, a ward of the state who is to be unwound due to cost-cutting; and Lev, his parents' tenth child whose unwinding has been planned since birth as a religious tithing. As their paths intersect and lives hang in the balance, Shusterman examines serious moral issues in a way that will keep readers turning the pages to see if Connor, Risa, and Lev avoid meeting their untimely ends.” The library has ordered copies of the book, so each group member may have one. Please stop by the library, and pick up your copy today. For more information on the book discussion, please contact the Wauseon Public Library at amy.murphy@oplin.org or call 419-335-6626.

CHURCH & SPIRITUAL NEWS

“Winning The Battle For A Generation”
HOW CAN YOU TURN YOUR WEAKNESS INTO STRENGTH ?
As we approach the season of Thanksgiving we would do well to ponder the spiritual lessons learned from America’s founders, the Pilgrims. How did they turn their weaknesses into strength? Wheaton College Professor Robert Tracy McKenzie explores the heroism and weaknesses of the first American Pilgrims: There is much to admire about the “company of plain Englishmen” who disembarked from the Mayflower almost four centuries ago. They were men and women [who] exhibited enormous courage in the face of unspeakable hardship and loss. They loved their children, they loved the body of Christ, and they abandoned everything that was familiar to them to serve both …. They have [given] us an invaluable Christian example of belief, action, and endurance. But human frailty is part of the Pilgrims’ story as well. They argued among themselves. They were frequently duped both by strangers and purported friends. They were ethnocentric and sometimes self-righteous. They struggled with their finances …. They were frightened by wolves. They got lost in the woods …. A key leader got caught by an Indian deer trap and dangled helplessly upside down …. In years to come, they would have a hard time keeping a pastor … and many of their number would move away in search of larger farms, prompting William Bradford to speak of the Plymouth church as “an ancient mother grown old and forsaken of her children.” Their flaws may shock us, but it wouldn’t have shocked the Pilgrims. They seemed to glory in how God could use them despite their weakness and sinfulness. One of their key leaders (Robert Cushman) said, “Our voyage … hath been as full of crosses as ourselves have been of crookedness, but God can do much.” Another leader (Edward Winslow) said, “How few, weak, and raw were we at our first beginning, and yet God preserved us.” William Bradford gloried in their weaknesses, but his object in doing so is clear: “that their children may see with what difficulties their fathers wrestled in going through these things in their first beginnings; and how God brought them along, notwithstanding all their weaknesses and infirmities.” Reflecting on our weaknesses the Apostle Paul writes…. 2 Corinthians 12:10 (KJV), 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Devotional Thought / Fellowship of Christian Athletes
BY: REX STUMP - “THE POWER OF A TEAM!”
for him.” It was God’s idea for man to not be alone. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 says, “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.” It was God’s idea to team up and help each other! In the Animal Kingdom individual animals have a new name when they group together. For example, a group of cows are classified as a “herd.” Here are some more: Fish = School Whales = Pod Gorillas = Band Squirrels = Scurrey Lions = Pride Giraffes = Tower Weasel = Gang Rhino = Crash Some animals have more than one classification name. For example, Bison can be called a herd or a gang. Two of my favorite animal group names belong to the alligator and vulture. Alligator = Congregation; and the vulture = Committee. (Is this why some people avoid church?) Animals are given new names as they come together. In the same way, we are given new names too. A group of Christians are known as “the church.” A group of athletes are a “team.” Paul says in Philippians, we are known as “citizens of Heaven!” That is really cool! As a citizen, I’m not alone, and I’m not on my own. I have others who hold me accountable, and whom I should hold accountable. That’s spiritual teamwork! In Romans 8:37 Paul tells us that “we are more than conquerors, through Christ who loves us!” More than conquerors in Greek is hypernikaō, which means “above Nike.” Nike was the Greek goddess of victory that everyone worshiped! Paul is saying that when we team up with Christ, we are bigger than the goddess of victory! We are MORE THAN victorious! There is power in a team! God didn’t create us to be alone. He wants us to team up with Him, and with others who share in that same faith! So, knowing that God created us to team up, who are you teaming up with? Are you teaming up with others at church, FCA Campus Huddles, small group Bible study, etc. For more reading, check out Romans 8 and James 4:4.

We live in a time when individuals are awarded and applauded, and teamwork seems to be a secondary thought. Is that true? (Next time you attend a high school awards banquet, pay attention to all the awards handed out and see how many of them are individual or team.) From the beginning of time, God made it clear in Genesis 2:18, “Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right

PASTOR KATHY CURRIER, FAYETTE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

Pastor’s Thoughts
“WISE STEWARDS OF TIME”

Recently, I preached on being wise stewards (managers) of our time. All that we have is God’s, and he certainly cares as much about how we spend our time as he does how we spend our money. Since that Sunday message, I have had several folks from my congregation tell me they have been thinking and re-thinking how they spend their time. As the seasons change, we sometimes find ourselves thinking time passes by quickly; where did the summer go? And winter will be here before we realize it. Time is an important factor in our lives. We could all do a better job of how we spend our hours and days. Someone once told me, “time is the great leveler. No matter how rich you are, how poor, how powerful, how important, we all have the same amount of hours in the day.” Such a true statement. And we are all a little guilty of squandering our time. By squandering, I mean we use our days in ways that have no real significance. We are busy, but we aren’t purposeful – we often get from one commitment to the next, one appointment to the next, one practice to the next . . . we are very active, but we squander our time. Our busyness often keeps us from doing the things that are really important. Since so much of our time is spent doing superficial things, we make no REAL INVESTMENT in something of worth. If we aren’t going to see some immediate result, it doesn’t seem worth our time. What if were more purposeful in how we spent our hours? What if instead of meeting each other coming and going, families were intentional about being present with each other? Imagine how that could improve our relationships! Jesus gives us a great example of how to be a better steward/manager of our time. In his short ministry, Jesus was effective and intentional about how he spent his time. One example from Scripture is John 17:4, Jesus said, “I have glorified you on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.” Jesus was purposeful and a faithful steward of his time; he brought glory to God through his work and

the relationships he built. He never seemed to be in a hurry. Although he was doing the most important job in history, and he knew he had a short time to do it, he never ran. He took time to consider the flowers and the birds of the air. He had time for the children and those marginalized. His life was intentional. We should all treasure our time and consider every day as a precious gift from God; it is the most valuable asset we have in this world. What do you do with your time that is a waste? What could go in your daily schedule, so you have more time to just be present in your home and in the lives of those closest to you? In Ephesians 5:15-15, Paul warns the church in Ephesus, “Be very careful, then, how you live – not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.” Paul’s warning to “live carefully” means to be constantly looking around to make the most of every opportunity. When an opportunity passes, it can’t be reclaimed – it is gone. We are to make the most of our time. At this time of the year when we focus on thankfulness and thanking God for the blessings we have, perhaps it would be good for each of us to be more intentional toward, and more thankful, for the people God has placed in our lives.
