Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING – Before a
packed house on Tuesday
night, the Paulding Exempted
School Board heard from a
second alleged victim of for-
mer teacher Don Schnepp.
Defiance businessman, David
Kinkade, a 1985 Paulding
graduate, faced the board and
in the two minutes allotted
him, gave a somber statement
concerning how he, too, was
sexually molested by
Schnepp, along with his dis-
appointment in the actions of
the school board.
Kinkade joins Barry Vance,
who faced the board last
month with similar accusa-
tions of molestation. Both
Vance and Kinkade are re-
questing the memorial rock be
destroyed and no other memo-
rials bearing Don Schnepp’s
name be erected on school
property.
Schnepp died in 2004 after
committing suicide. In March,
the board was presented
$280,585.61 from the estate
of Schnepp’s sister, Bev
Saylor, to the middle school in
memory of Schnepp.
The “rock” has been re-
moved and according to su-
perintendent Bill Hanak, it is
in a safe place. Although the
rock is removed, Vance and
Kinkade want to see it de-
stroyed.
Following Kinkade’s
speech, he thanked the board
for their time and he and his
wife left the meeting.
In speaking to the board
Kinkade said:
“I’m David Kinkade, grad-
uated in 1985. I’m also one of
the students that was sexually
molested by Mr. Schnepp my
eighth grade and freshman
year in school.
“I do not blame anybody in
this administration or this
board for what happened to
me in the past. However, I am
not happy with the way every-
one acted in this administra-
tion that has deflected all these
allegations. You wanted more
than one student to come for-
ward so I did my part and I’ve
come forward.
“All I’ve seen are deflec-
tions and denials in any inter-
view, in any newspaper. You
announce that you will de-
stroy the rock honoring Mr.
Schnepp and not do any future
memorials. I’m not going
away on this matter and I
won’t rest until I get that. I
have already made steps to
take this national if need be.
“And I just don’t want this
ignored. By not having and
making a public statement
you’re saying it’s okay to
honor a pedophile instead of
previous students that have
children in school today. And
it’s a slap in the face every
time they walk by that rock.
Now, I know it’s gone. But to
say you moved it for safe
keeping; that was very hurtful.
That’s about all I have to say.
Thank you for your time.”
Kinkade presented the
board with a petition with 579
signatures, calling for the me-
morial rock’s removal.
Following Kinkade, the
board heard from former jun-
ior high school secretary
Delores Whirrett, who spoke
in support of Schnepp.
Vance, who was present for
the meeting, left in the midst
of Whirrett’s speech while she
praised Schnepp for his in-
tegrity and how he could not
have done what he is accused
of.
After Kinkade and Whirrett
spoke, school board president
Mark Manz read a prepared
statement on behalf of the
school board:
“The board has done what it
can to investigate the allega-
tions being made, hampered
by the passage of time and the
fact that school staff, adminis-
tration and board have com-
pletely changed since the time
of the alleged events. We are
trying to be fair to both sides,
but can reach no conclusion as
to the truth or falsity of the al-
legations being made.
“We do not feel there is
more that we can do and we
believe we have heard what
there is to hear about this par-
ticular matter; we do not need
to have the allegations repeat-
ed more times.
“We have come to the con-
sensus that it would be in the

PAULDING – The 2014 Relay For
Life of Paulding County will be held
from 6 p.m. Friday, May 30, until
noon on Saturday, May 31, at the
Paulding County Fairgrounds. The
theme for this year is “Be a Super
Hero.”
Adding to the excitement of the
event is the news that the local
American Cancer Society relay has
surpassed $1 million in fundraising
during its 21 years. The announce-
ment was made last week.
“We were all screaming and jump-
ing up and down. It’s a big thing,”
said event chairman Karen Saxton.
“Paulding County is one of the older
relays.”
Visitors can attend the event free of
charge. The public is encouraged to
visit each campsite; each team has its
own activities and
fundraisers going in in
addition to the event
schedule.
Among the food being
served: corndogs, loaded
baked potatoes, hot dogs,
walking tacos, bratwurst, cot-
ton candy, cupcakes, loaded na-
chos, chili, pulled pork and creamed
chicken sandwiches, strawberry
shortcake, cookies, grilled steak sand-
wiches, biscuits and gravy (break-
fast), sausage and pancakes (break-
fast).
Themed laps are scheduled
throughout the event.
The Relay For Life will commence
at 6 p.m. with the opening cere-
monies and the raising of the
flag. The Paulding High
School Pep Band will set
the tone with music prior
to the kickoff.
Also at 6 p.m. there
will be the Survivors,
Caregivers and Honor
laps. Those participating in
the Survivors lap may register at 5:15.
This year’s honorary survivors are

2A - Paulding County Progress Wednesday, May 28, 2014
I don’t consider myself an activist, but there are
things that I think are important enough in this
world to talk about in hopes of raising aware-
ness. The plight of the monarch butterflies is
one of them, as you may know, and it excites
me when someone tells me they’ve planted
milkweed in their garden. (I saw my first
monarch of the season on May 17, by the way!)
There’s another problem out there that con-
cerns me and that’s the disappearance of hon-
eybees. This industry has had a
presence in our county for
decades, and those who work in
it can tell you that this is of rel-
evance to everyone, not just
those who are keepers of the
bees.
We all know that honey bees
gather pollen and nectar to feed
themselves and the young bees
in their colonies. As they’re
doing this, they pollinate plants,
which is essential for the repro-
duction and fruiting of many of
them.
Bees are responsible for an
incredible one-third of all the edible fruits and
vegetables produced. Without sufficient bee
pollination, you will see lopsided fruits. Those
strawberries that have weird shapes?
Insufficient pollination by the bees is why.
Apples are affected by this too.
Some of the foods that would be difficult to
find in supermarkets and be expensive to buy if
the honey bees disappeared are apples, blue-
berries, almonds, cherries, avocados, pump-
kins, grapefruit, onions, cucumbers, and or-
anges.
These crops depend largely on bees to polli-
nate them and without bees, other pollinators
wouldn’t take up the slack enough to make
large-scale production possible. Almonds,
grapefruit, and oranges are around 90 percent
pollinated by bees.
Colony collapse disorder is a compound
problem that has plagued bees for years but has
seen an increase in recent history. Pesticides
(particularly those with neonicontinoids such
as imidacloprid), loss of habitat, mite infec-
tions, and other factors contribute to CCD.
What can we do as home gardeners to help
this situation? First of all, limit your use of pes-
ticides and if you feel you must use them at all,
do it in the evening when the bees aren’t active.
Systemic pesticides are of particular concern
because they become incorporated into the
plant itself and are an ever-present threat.
It’s estimated that 50-80
percent of the world’s food sup-
ply is directly or indirectly af-
fected by pollination by honey
bees. Since year round edible
food production is in demand,
that places even more impor-
tance on the bees pollinating the
plants that feed us. We can plant
nectar-producing flowers that
provide blooms throughout the
summer, so that bees have plen-
ty of food for their own off-
spring, thereby helping to keep
bee populations up.
Dandelions provide one of
the earliest sources of food for bees and other
pollinators so even though many people don’t
like them in their lawns, they serve a noble pur-
pose in the natural world.
As one who is allergic to bee stings, I can’t
really raise my own bees like I’d like to, but it’s
becoming a very popular backyard activity.
Even if you can’t keep bees yourself, you could
host some hives for a local bee keeper.
Eating local honey has been said to reduce
allergies, but there is no scientific proof that it
helps. Still, honey contains vitamins and min-
erals and is a source of energy as a natural
sugar, not to mention that it tastes good!
The next time you see a honey bee flitting
from flower to flower, you might want to offer
a prayer of thanks for all they do for you.

chaperone usually take
snacks for the youth. So we
had a variety of different
snacks and also coffee and
punch.
The youth can play basket-
ball, volleyball or board
games. We arrived home
after midnight which is some-
thing we’re not used to doing
anymore. We could sleep late
the next morning, though,
since it was not a church Sun-
day.
Sister Susan had her 38th
birthday on Saturday, May
10. She had us all invited to
their house on Sunday for
dinner in honor of her birth-
day.
Brother Albert, Sarah
Irene, and six of their children
drove to Verena and Susan’s
house on Saturday evening
with horses and buggy. They
stayed until Sunday after-
noon. Albert’s moved to the
west end of their community
so they live closer than be-
fore, around 15 – 17 miles
from here now. They made
the trip in 1- 1 /2 hours. Al-
bert’s are in the process of
building all new buildings so
they have a lot of work ahead.
They are renting a house
close by their new land.
Daughter Lovina will be 10
on Sunday. She is excited so
she can now start sitting with
the girls in church instead of
beside me. It makes them feel
so much more mature when
they don’t have to sit with a
parent anymore. It will be a
change for me to not have any
little ones beside me. Joe still
Another rainy day! It has
been rainy all week. We were
able to get all the clothes
dried on Monday even
though there was a shower
after the clothes were on the
lines. We need to do laundry
again and sure am hoping for
a nice day on Friday or Satur-
day.
Tonight the men from our
church district will gather
here to practice singing songs
from the Ausbund, our Ger-
man church songbook. It is a
good way to get the younger
men to learn how to lead all
the songs. I need to make
something today for a snack
to serve to them after the
singing.
We are enjoying asparagus,
rhubarb, mushrooms and win-
ter onions, all of those early
garden goodies. The dande-
lions are over with for another
year. Once the flowers come
out the greens become bitter
and not so good to eat.
Saturday afternoon our vis-
itors were sister Liz, Levi,
and their four children. Also,
their daughter Elizabeth’s
special friend, Samuel. We
would have liked to have
joined them at my sister’s
Verena and Susan’s house for
supper but had plans already.
We were asked to be chaper-
ones for the youth at the
community building along
with our neighbors, Joas and
Susan.
We left around 6 p.m. to go
to the community building
which is around 10 miles
from here. The parents that

little over a year yet. How
fast these years go and the
older I get the more time
seems to fly.
Daughter Susan moved her
pony Roxie and her colt
home. It had been at Timo-
thy’s place. It’s always inter-
esting to see a frisky little foal
running in the field. The
horses and ponies are happy
to be out on pasture. These
rains will make the grass keep
growing.
Try this different way of
using your asparagus. God
bless!

bread. Place one asparagus
spear on each slice and roll up
jelly roll style. Dip each piece
in the melted butter, turning to
coat.

Commissioners’ Journal
Commissioners’ Journal May 14, 2014
This 14th day of May, 2014, the Board of
County Commissioners met in regular session
with the following members present: Tony Zart-
man, Roy Klopfenstein, Fred Pieper and Nola
Ginter, Clerk.
MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS
Luke Jackson met with the commissioners to
discuss his Eagle Scout project. He plans to land-
scape the four corners of the courthouse square.
He reported he has raised a portion of the pro-
jected cost. Luke would like to start the project
this weekend and hopes to have it completed by
Memorial Day.
Bob Arend and Brion Hanenkratt – Mr.
Arend acknowledged receipt of the change in
radio frequency the commissioners applied for
through the FCC. He noted that moving for-
ward, they need information on the program-
ming of the current radios, as some will need to
be reprogrammed.
Hanenkratt remarked that though using
MARCS would be great, he realizes the user
fees and the cost of new radios would be pro-
hibitive for the county.
Arend reminded the commissioners and Ha-
nenkratt that radio service from inside any steel
building will be an issue no matter what system
is being used. His topographic study showed weak
spots on the east and southeast sections of the
county.
Hanenkratt suggested putting new repeaters in
the vehicles and using the changed frequency for
a trial run.
Arend and Hanenkratt will work on repro-
gramming the radios that need it. Arend will work
with ERS to order repeaters.
Brenda Crawford, board of elections, talked to
the commissioners about the ADA project at the
OSU Extension Building. This building serves as
a voting precinct and needs to be better handi-
capped accessible. The board of elections has se-
cured a grant to help fund the project. Crawford
will research the grant criteria to see if matching
funds are necessary.
County Engineer Travis McGarvey and the
commissioners discussed various “sharing” op-
portunities with ODOT at their Paulding location.
Sheriff Jason Landers reported his office ad-
ministrative assistant, Jennifer Wiswell, has been
applying for a variety of grants to purchase equip-
ment, tactical team equipment, etc. He com-
mended Wiswell for her efforts, stating the grant
dollars are out there and she has made the time to
do the paperwork and apply for them.
Landers provided a budget update with projec-
tions to year-end. He reported his staff just re-
cently completed mandatory training. Sheriff
Landers noted there were 125 inmates housed at
the Putnam County Jail in the first quarter 2014,
serving a total of 1,795 days. He pointed out the
savings with the set rate ($62,500/quarter), com-
pared to the daily rate ($55 x 1,795 days =
$98,725).
Landers discussed the possibility of including
a jail operating levy on the fall ballot. He would
appreciate public input and will be gathering data
to educate and inform voters. His goal is not to
“candy coat” the issue; but, instead make every-
one aware of the responsibilities, pros and cons,
and costs relating to the maintaining and operating
of the jail. He would like for the public to know
the facts before casting their vote at the polls.
Landers thanked the commissioners for sug-
gesting the move of the common pleas adult pro-
bation office to his office. He commented it has
improved communication, continuity and ac-
countability.
The sheriff noted storage of records is becom-
ing a challenge. There are paper records prior to
2000 that are permanent and, because these
records are information sensitive, the need for ad-
ditional secured storage is a concern.
Landers then discussed the dog kennel opera-
tions. He reported Deputy Mark Rassman has re-
sponded to at least 432 calls since he began his
dog warden duties last July. Reports in the form
of graphs were reviewed comparing the number
of dog-related calls to other calls as they came in
through the sheriff’s dispatchers. Landers compli-
mented his deputies in the timely handling of
these calls. He also noted that documenting the
calls has been key to caller satisfaction and fol-
low-up.
EXECUTIVE SESSION
A motion was made by Klopfenstein to go into
executive session at 8:03 a.m. with the Paulding
County prosecutor to discuss legal matters. The
motion was seconded by Pieper. All members vot-
ing yea.
At 8:14 a.m. all members present agreed to
adjourn the executive session and go into regu-
lar session.

tion:

Burkley announces
passage of HB 198
COLUMBUS – The Ohio House of Representatives last
week passed House Bill 198, jointly sponsored by State Rep-
resentatives Tony Burkley (R-Payne) and Jim Butler (R-Oak-
wood), legislation that changes how local infrastructure
projects are funded by providing property owners with the op-
tion of not having their property included as part of a Tax In-
crement Financing (TIF) incentive district.
Tax Increment Financing allows local governments to sell
bonds, borrowing against increased property tax revenues in
the future in order to fund an infrastructure project that will at-
tract a business or enable the building of new facilities.
Under certain circumstances, the bill will allow a property
owner to exclude a piece of land from being included in a TIF
incentive district. In order to exempt the land, the owner must
submit a written response to the authority proposing the cre-
ation of the district, such as a board of county commissioners
or board of township trustees.
“My experience in local government and a small business
owner allowed me to have unique insight into this legislation,
and I was proud to joint sponsor the bill.” Rep. Burkley said.
“We were able to work closely with all interested parties on
this issue, producing legislation that makes sense. I’m glad see
that property owners will have a voice regarding TIF financ-
ing,” Rep. Burkley said.
House Bill 198 will now move to the Senate for further con-
sideration.

In My Opinion
Receiving a miracle
By Eileen Kochensparger
Secretary, Bargain Bin of Paulding County Inc.
How many of you have experienced a miracle in your life?
We read about miracles all the time in books or hear about
them through word of mouth or the news, but have you ever
personally experienced a miracle? I am a miracle.
Nine years ago, I was
stricken with Streptococcus
pneumonia and given only a
24 percent of survival. I was
in a coma for six weeks and
remember nothing of that
time. People who see me yet
today call my recovery a
miracle. But there are other
kinds of miracles and the
Bargain Bin of Paulding County has received a miracle.
In the early 1960s during the time of the polio epidemic, a
group of ladies formed the Paulding County Bargain Bin.
They saw a need for therapy for polio patients who had to go
to Mineral Springs for treatment. Why go that distance when
these women had a vision to bring a therapy department to
our local hospital? They chose to open a business where peo-
ple could donate articles of clothing, shoes, books, miscella-
neous items all in good condition as these items would be
sold for a fraction of the cost of a new item.
The business was a success and over the years has contin-
ued to provide for the hospital physical therapy department.
The Bargain Bin moved to different places but for some time
has been located just west of the courthouse at 108 W. Perry
St. next to the old theater. Thanks to the generosity of our
community, we have donated thousands of dollars toward
physical therapy equipment at the Paulding County Hospital.
But if we had a bigger building, we could do so much more.
Space is limited in our present building but we make due
with what we have.
A couple of years ago the members of the Bargain Bin of
Paulding County Inc. began searching for a bigger building.
One Monday morning after we had finished our work for the
coming weekend, we gathered in a circle and prayed for God
to bless us with a new place of residence. We had several op-
portunities to purchase buildings, but the cost would have
been more than our budget could handle so we waited. But
not knowing how long until God was going to answer our re-
quest, we chose to remodel a small area of the present build-
ing to make more room for donations, a dressing room and a
room with cupboards and running water.
Sometimes God works in mysterious ways. It seems He
was waiting for us to take the initiative to remodel when our
president, Rhonda Smalley, received a call that an unknown
benefactor would donate to us a large sum of money that
would help build a new building. Needless to say, we were
overwhelmed and we agreed to accept this gift.
Our new building will be built on the corner of Harrison
and Cherry. Bids will be going out soon for an approximate
sized building of 60 feet by 70 feet. We will not be able to
fully fund the project with the monies that have been donated
so we would gladly accept any donation that you would like
to contribute to our building fund.
The Bargain Bin is a vibrant extension of the Paulding
County Hospital and we hope to be able to continue our do-
nations to the rehab department for a long time.
New members are always welcome. You can contact me at
419-399-5818. Our hours are Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Satur-
day 9 a.m.-noon. Work day is on Monday from 8 a.m.-noon
depending on the donations that we have received. Donations
can also be placed in the white building at the back of the B
& B or during our open hours. Any money donations can be
sent to Donna Pieper, 11661 Rd 162, Paulding OH 45879.
We hope you are as excited as we are. We will be on cloud
nine for some time. God is so good!

Commissioners’Journal May 19, 2014
This 19th day of May, 2014, the
Board of County Commissioners met
in regular session with the following
members present: Tony Zartman, Roy
Klopfenstein, and Nola Ginter, Clerk.
Absent: Fred Pieper.
MEETING NOTES OF APPOINT-
MENTS
Aaron Timm, county engineer’s of-
fice, presented a letter requesting au-
thorization to advertise the county
commissioners’ parking lot improve-
ment project. He also announced the
engineer’s crew will be mowing the
parking lot north of the fairgrounds in
preparation of the Paulding County
Fair.
Seven members of the Bargain Bin
of Paulding County Inc. board met
with the commissioners to discuss its
future. The commissioners were
pleased to announce their decision to
sell the two lots west of the old Pauld-
ing County Jail site to the Bargain Bin.
The commissioners were made
aware of the Bargain Bin’s need for a
building site several weeks ago. Bar-
gain Bin board member Rhonda Smal-
ley explained they have experienced,
in her words, “a miracle from heaven.”
She stated that an anonymous
donor/donors has pledged $80,000 to-
ward a new building for the Bargain
Bin.
The current location of the Bargain
Bin is next to the old movie theater on
Perry Street. The building is in need of
a lot of maintenance and the space is
limited.
Construction of a new building will
only be possible if there is a lot avail-
able. Smalley noted the importance of
keeping the Bargain Bin in town for eas-
ier accessibility to customers. The com-
missioners agreed the two lots will
provide the perfect location.
The members of the Bargain Bin
then provided a brief history of their
group. Technically, the Bargain Bin had
its start back in 1962. However, prior to
its inception, several Paulding County
ladies had volunteered their services by
traveling to Mineral Springs, Ohio, to
assist in preparing supplies for medical
personnel during the polio epidemic.
After the new Paulding County Hospital
was built in 1962, the ladies decided to
bring their efforts back to Paulding
County. Since then, the Bargain Bin has
been able to purchase over $1 million of
physical therapy equipment for the
Paulding County Hospital.
The Bargain Bin accepts donations
of gently used items and then sells them
for a reasonable price to people in need.
All the proceeds are used to pay the Bar-
gain Bin’s bills for operation and to pur-
chase equipment for the hospital. The
board members are proud to contribute
to community wellness.
An estimate for a 60x70 steel build-
ing has been quoted at $90,000.
The board is waiting for estimates on
a 60x80 building. The Bargain Bin re-
cently held their annual meeting with 34
active members attending. There are ap-
proximately 20 more members that
weren’t able to attend the meeting.
Anyone wishing to donate to the
Bargain Bin may contact Rhonda Smal-
ley, Eileen Kochensparger or Rose
Munger. Anonymous donations may be
made through the Paulding County Area
Foundation.

A valuable table in
spite of a few scratches
These days, our dining
room table is mainly used for
“desk purposes.” I place my
laptop on it to do much of my
writing, surrounded with
notebooks filled with story
ideas and interviews.
Underneath the writing
tools are memories of when it
was once surrounded by our
children, their friends and
special family outings.
It was the centerpiece of
family visits in our dining
room in Michigan, a time
when the kids were still
home, my parents and Joyce’s
parents were still alive, and
visits meant spending much
of the evening visiting around
the table following the
evening meal.
It was where we colored
with the kids, entertained
guests, played board games
and sat and drank coffee.
Three days before my dad
passed, he and I sat at that old
table, drank coffee all after-
noon on a Christmas Day that
we didn’t realize at the time
would be our last one to-
gether.
Further back, I can still re-
member my grandmother
telling Joyce and I early in
our marriage that she wanted
us to have that old table. After
all, it was the table that she
and my grandfather had ac-
quired from what was then
known as the Mersman Table
Factory in Celina. It was the
table that they started keeping
house with over 100 years
ago.
When we carried the table
from her home 44 years ago,
Joyce and I decided that we
were not going to address the
top of the table, even though
it was covered with scratches
and marks. Those marks were
reminders of processed meat
and vegetables, working on
wood projects and old-fash-
ioned thrashing dinners in the
early days.
ing on projects.
These days as I sit by the
table and type stories, journal
entries, devotionals and fam-
ily memories, I feel as though
I am working on the founda-
tion of the family before me –
the hard labor of my grand-
mother bearing her children
and the table where family
members gathered to pray and
read the Bible.
Hundreds of prayers oc-
curred around that table,
prayers that are the very foun-
dation of the strength we feel in
our lives today.
Today, when I look at the old
table top, each mark is sacred
and cries out with rich family
history and heritage, encourag-
ing us to continue in faith as we
continue our journey around
the old Mersman table.
HOMESPUN
By
JIM LANGHAM
My mother was born on top
of that table. In fact, Grandma
had all six of her children on
top of that table. Each one of
those marks were/are special
memory marks from every-
thing from our family tree to
Christmas and Thanksgiving
dinners, to marks left by two
generations of children work-

MIRROR MIRROR ON THE
WALL!
I am always wondering
about something. Sometimes
I just like to sit and contem-
plate things. Today I was
thinking about mirrors. I have
never met a mirror I didn’t
have the urge to look into.
They say a person is self con-
scious and unsure of himself
if he constantly looks in a
mirror to check his appear-
ance.
I am also wondering who
looks in a mirror more.....
males or females? I really
don’t know if it is unusual or
not, but I glance in a mirror
each time I pass one. Am I
expecting to see something
different than the last time I
looked? No! I do it out of
habit. I wonder if there is any-
one in this world who has
never looked in a mirror. I
read that years ago the Native
Americans would look into a
river or pond of water to see
their reflections, so we do
know there has always been a
way for us ladies and men to
tell what we look like.
A few years ago we went
on vacation and took our little
dog, Baylee. In the hotel
room was a full length mirror
which Baylee got in front of
immediately. He spied him-
self because he started bark-
ing at his reflection in the
mirror. He would run up,
stop, look at that “other” dog
and sometimes he would
growl ferociously and other
times he would wag his tail
and flirt. We thought it was
funny at first, but we finally
had to put something over the
mirror to stop Baylee from
barking at himself.
When I was younger I
worked in a restaurant and
soda shop. Down both sides
of the restaurant were big
mirrors. As I hurriedly
pranced by, waiting on cus-
tomers and serving vanilla
Cokes, I would always look
into those mirrors to see if I
looked good enough to per-
haps get a quarter tip.
I remember my grandma
had long hair. For church she
would put it in a bun and on
weekdays she would wear a
braid. She had a hand mirror
on her dresser which she
would hold up to a larger mir-
ror to see the back of her hair.
Now Grandma was not a vain
person, but she did like to
check herself out in the mir-
ror and sometimes while
looking in a mirror, she
would pinch her cheeks to
make them pink. Maybe I in-
herited my fascination with
mirrors from my grandma.
However, Grandpa was just
as bad, as he looked into a
mirror while he tried on vari-
ous hats to wear for the day.
There are a few beliefs
about mirrors, so be careful.
For one thing, people are
warned never to look into a
mirror at night or by candle
A Penny For
Your Thoughts....

light. If you do you would be
certain to see ghosts, demons
and maybe your own death.
Another old belief is that
when a person died in a room
the mirrors had to be covered
or turned to face the wall.
Failure to do so would result
in the deceased person’s soul
being lost – or they may even
turn into a vampire.
We have all heard if you
break a mirror you will have
seven years bad luck. How-
ever, OldSuperstitions.com
claims that breaking a mirror
will not result in bad luck if
you “take the pieces outside
and bury them in moonlight.”
Now one thing that is nice is
a full length mirror. I happen
not to have one, so I step out
onto the porch and look in a
full length window to check
and see if my slip is hanging or
my britches aren’t too tight.
I have heard that our eyes are
the mirrors to our souls. I do
believe someone can look into
your eyes like a mirror and can
see your emotions.
A mirror can make us think
we look good or bad. We can
stand all day in front of a mir-
ror and primp, but we are still
the same person that stares
back at us from within the
“mirror.”
Do you like to look into mir-
rors? Do you like what you
see? Has your dog ever looked
in a mirror and barked at him-
self? Let me know and I’ll give
you a Penny for Your thoughts.

Hope shines its brightest during the
Luminaria Ceremony at the
Relay For Life. Held after dark,
friends gather around the candlelit
track to remember, honor and
celebrate the lives of those who
have battled cancer.
Luminaries are small bonfires–
traditional symbols that originated in
the Southwest region of the U.S. since
the 16th century, luminaries have
burned alongside the road or in church
yards as part of religious festivals and
celebrations. Each luminaria represents
not only a treasured relationship, but
also a contribution to the American
Cancer Society’s mission. Luminaria
gifts support research, prevention,
early detection, and improved quality
of life for cancer patients.
Whether or not they are present at
Relay For Life, luminaria donors light
the way for hope, progress & answers.
The Luminaria Ceremony will be held
at the Relay For Life on May 30, 2014
at the Paulding County Fairgrounds.

Roughton earns ESC award
COLUMBUS – In early April the Ohio Ed-
ucational Service Center Association
(OESCA) recognized 82 of Ohio’s top stu-
dents from across the state during the 25th an-
nual Franklin B. Walter All-Scholastic Awards
Program.
Kaitlyn Roughton, a senior at Paulding
High School, was the Paulding County winner
from the Western Buckeye Educational Serv-
ice Center. Her award was made on Wednes-
day, April 9.
One senior from each county in Ohio was
eligible to receive this annual honor. A selec-
tion committee from Mercer County ESC
evaluated all the applicants from Western
Buckeye Educational Service Center.
The awards program was established in
1989 by OESCA to promote and recognize
outstanding student leaders for their academic
achievement and service to their schools and
communities. Only public high school seniors
were eligible to apply and were required to
demonstrate outstanding academic achieve-
ment
Among the attendees of the OESCA Spring
Conference and 100th Anniversary Celebration
of Ohio’s ESCs, was State Representative Tony
Burkley (R-82nd House District) who delivered
the invocation and Ohio’s State Superintendent
of Public Instruction, Dr. Richard A. Ross.
Over the past 25 years, OESCA has recog-
nized over 2,000 scholars and student leaders
during this event.
“For 100 years ESCs have provided technical
assistance and support to Ohio’s schools and stu-
dents,” added Western Buckeye ESC Superin-
tendent Brian Gerber. “We look forward to
another century of service, in partnership with
school district leadership, ensuring all students
have the tools and resources necessary to suc-
ceed regardless of where they live and attend
school.”
‘Winning the Battle for a Generation’
By Rick Jones
Defiance Area Youth for
Christ executive director
What are you afraid of?
I often talk with (counsel) people who are
either afraid to die or conversely, they’re
afraid to live. If you are afraid today, which of
those best describes you?
I read in PreachingToday.com a news article
that describes the fear of actress Susan Saran-
don. In a recent (2014) interview, actress and
social activist Susan Sarandon talked about
having long-given up on “organized religion.”
Sarandon who “nurtures her spiritual self” by
practicing meditation had this to say on what
drove her away from the church:
I was in trouble from the very beginning in
school, not because I was a rebel but because
I asked what were deemed to be inappropriate
questions. I remember in third grade being
told that the only people who were really mar-
ried were those married in the [church]. I said,
“Then, how were Joseph and Mary married,
because Jesus didn’t create the church till
later?” Original sin didn’t make any sense to
me … And, as I got older, a wrathful God did-
n’t make any sense, or a God that would con-
demn someone to hell for their sexual
orientation.
But at the close of the interview, Sarandon
confessed, “The only thing I’m really afraid
of is death. I still haven’t gotten to the point
where I think that’s cool.”
Some people are afraid of dying and others
are afraid of living. If you are afraid today,
which one of those previous statements best
describes you? Are you afraid of dying? Are
you afraid to live? Jesus came to address both
of those fears and His words in John 10:10
summarize his prayer you… John 10:10
(NIV), “10 The thief comes only to steal and
kill and destroy; I have come that they may
have life, and have it to the full.”
I beg you to choose life, to choose to live, to
live abundantly, eternally with Him; you’ll be
glad you did.

Wayne Trace’s Klopfenstein
wins prestigious state award
MATTHEW
KLOPFENSTEIN
By JIM LANGHAM
Feature Writer
Wayne Trace senior
Matthew Klopfenstein recently
learned that he has been
awarded the prestigious Engi-
neering and Mechanical Sci-
ence Award for the State of
Ohio. As a result, Klopfenstein,
the son of Roy and Deborah
Klopfenstein, will be traveling
to Atlanta later this year for the
National 4-H Congress.
Klopfenstein received the
coveted award as a result of the
summation of many of his 4-H
accomplishments including his
success in such areas as state
and national competition in
welding and small engines and
robotics, including county level
achievements.
In order to be considered,
Klopfenstein filled out exten-
sive paperwork and records of
his achievements and mailed
them to a committee in Colum-
bus. Committee members then
evaluated the various applica-
tions and chose Klopfenstein as
the overall winner.
“I was really, really excited,”
said Klopfenstein. “I applied
the last two years and didn’t get
it. This is my last year in 4-H
and I got it. It was very exciting
to hear about.”
Paulding County 4-H pro-
gram assistant Staci Hiler
called Klopfenstein’s feat “an
amazing accomplishment” and
said that it’s the first time she’s
known of that such an award
has been won by a local youth
on the state level since she’s
working in the area.
“He is so talented and works
hard. He is very diligent in
what he does. Obviously, we
are all very proud of him,” said
Hiler.
Klopfenstein has been in 4-
H for 13 years and won two na-
tional awards in robotics and
one national award in welding.
In addition, he was awarded
nine trophies in various proj-
ects on the state level.
On the county level, in addi-
tion to engineering-related
projects, he was also successful
in market dairy feeder, market
lambs, Paulding Count Junior
Fair Board, 4-H camp counsel-
ing and and a 4-H ambassador
on the state level.
In his school, he was one of
nine valedictorians of the sen-
ior class. In addition he has
been selected as a state FFA of-
ficer and will serve as treasurer.
“Being involved in 4-H has
been a big part of my develop-
ment as an individual,” said
Klopfenstein. “The skills I
gained will be helpful as skill
sets for the future. The respon-
sibilities I learned were so help-
ful to me as a person.”
Klopfenstein looks to be at-
tending Ohio State University
and majoring in ag engineering.
He hopes to eventually become
a professional ag engineering
tester for John Deere.
New legislation offers educational,
employment support for veterans
Moving into the summer sea-
son, the Ohio House of Repre-
sentatives has been busy with a
variety of bills. Devoting time
and attention to each piece of
legislation is essential and part
of the democratic process. As
many of these bills have passed
through the House, one of spe-
cial importance has now ad-
vanced to the Senate.
House Bill 488 would affect
servicemen and women that
contribute to the well-being of
individuals in the communities
around them on a daily basis.
Not only would it affect the
82nd House District I represent,
but it would affect every district
in Ohio.
The purpose of this bill is to
give back to the veterans who
have invested their lives into a
career of fighting for our coun-
try. Through military careers,
veterans have gained a valuable
education outside of the class-
room that can and should be
used to accelerate their future
endeavors.
This bill would offer military
veterans the opportunity to re-
ceive college credit for the skills
they have obtained and used
while serving our country. The
training our veterans have ac-
quired can be used in a wide
array of career and educational
settings.
This instruction that our vet-
erans have received is special-
ized and extensive. The hard
work these men and women
have put into our military is ad-
mirable and should be recog-
nized leading into future
opportunities.
This bill offers a gradual tran-
sition into the workforce or into
a college program from the mil-
From The
State House
Rep. Tony Burkley
itary with the training counting
as credit. It would offer stability
to service members as well as a
jump start to their new career
path.
This bill would also require a
process to be created that would
ensure that the credits were
counted in an orderly manner.
State institutions would also
have to establish policies to as-
sist these veterans wanting to re-
ceive credit.
H.B. 488 passed last week
though the Ohio House and was
referred to the Public Safety,
Local Government & Veteran
Affairs committee in the Senate.
I hope to bring attention to this
important legislation because
honoring our veterans is part of
being an American, and as a rep-
resentative in Ohio, offering my
support for this bill is one small
way I can show my appreciation
to these brave men and women.
Rep. Burkley may be reached
by calling 614-644-5091, e-
mailing Rep82@ohiohouse.gov
or writing to State Representa-
tive Tony Burkley, 77 South
High Street, Columbus, Ohio

Local banker graduates from bank leadership program
ANTWERP - Twila Demongeot, assistant
vice president at The Antwerp Exchange Bank
Company in Antwerp, was among 20 bankers
from across Ohio who recently graduated
from the 2013-2014 Bank Leadership Institute
at the Ohio Bankers League.
Created by the OBL more than 20 years ago,
BLI generates leaders who will strengthen
their organizations through enhanced leader-
ship, organizational and performance skills.
The 20 participants met four times throughout
the 2013-2014 program year for two-day in-
tensive study sessions and hands-on learning,
and now join nearly 300 Ohio bankers who are
accomplished BLI graduates.
Each session concentrated on key learning
activities for leadership skills development
such as strategic planning, risk management,
presentation, coaching and mentoring, team-
building, negotiation and mediation, regula-
tory structure and environment, the legislative
process, and more. The program was led by
George Paidas, founder/executor of Embros,
a strategic planning, coaching and leadership
consulting firm. George is widely recognized
throughout the Ohio banking industry as a past
chairman of the Ohio Bankers League and for-
mer CEO of The Old Phoenix National Bank
in Medina.
For the fifth time, the BLI program also in-
cluded participation in the OBL Washington
D.C. Fly-In last February, which for many, was
their first experience in bank lobbying.
According to Mike Adelman, president &
CEO at the OBL, “Mid- to senior-level bankers
with executive potential are selected by their
bank to participate in the BLI program. This is a
sound way to establish a core network of bank
leaders who will provide future direction for both
their institutions and the Ohio banking industry.
Given the significant outflow of retiring baby
boomer bank executives, we need to keep our in-
dustry stocked with leaders passionate about sus-
taining banking in communities across Ohio.”

Board of Governors has ap-
pointed Michelle Waggoner as
Chief Executive Officer. Wag-
goner has been part of the CMH
team since 2001. Over the past
13 years, Waggoner has man-

ations and improving its per-
formance. Waggoner states, “I
am excited to begin my tenure
as CEO at Community Memorial
Hospital. I love this hospital, its
team members, and the com-
munity. I look forward to playing

Hi, my name is Buck and I am looking for a very special home!
I am a very sweet and friendly boy and I just love people! How-
ever, I do not like to be around other animals so I will need a
home where I am the only pet! I am a year and a half old Labrador
Retriever, neutered, up to date on my vaccinations, house and
crate trained. I like car rides, walks and chewing on tennis shoes.
I am an indoor dog, have been all my life, so I would not take too
well to living outside. I am really hoping for a new loving home
with people who will take good care of me forever and ever!
Please come by the Paulding County Dog Kennel and visit me
or call 419-399-3791 to see if I can be your new buddy dog! Hugs
and Licks, Buck.
Adopt a Dog
TREES PLANTED AT CHURCH CAMP – On May 4, the Auglaize Chapel Church of God from Oakwood planted trees at Payne
Church of God Camp. Twenty trees were planted throughout the camp to replace the trees lost from the storm in the summer 2012.

and continue through the week. Auglaize Chapel Church of God has Sunday services at 9 a.m. and Wednesday night services
starting at 7 p.m.
Dianne Cooper presented this year’s Virgil H. Cooper Scholarships at Paulding High School’s
senior awards night. From left are Cooper and recipients Justin Carnahan, Tiffany Spangler, Jade
VanCleve and Andrew Layman. Not pictured: recipients Alyssa Shelmandine and Ali Singer.

Honorable Mention
HAVILAND – In a unani-
mous vote by Paulding County
coaches, Wayne Trace’s Emilie
Linder was selected the Pauld-
ing Progress/Welch Trophy
Softball Player of the Year.
Linder led all county players
in batting average (.455), runs
scored (33), runs batted in (23),
home runs (4), on base percent-
age (.489) and slugging per-
centage (.659).
“She has been a true leader in
all aspects,” noted Raider head
coach Jack Baumle. “She leads
the team in just about every of-
fensive category. She is a rock
on the left side of the infield for
us and has a true love for the
game.”
The senior shortstop
recorded 40 hits on the year, in-
cluding four doubles and a
triple. Linder also paced the
county with an OPS (on base
plus slugging percentage) of
1.148, the only county player to
break over the 1.00 mark.
“She is just a go-getter on the
field,” continued the Raider
mentor. “You will never see her
do anything half speed. In any-
thing she does, she does the best
she possibly can.”
Joining Linder on the first
team are four Raider teammates
in seniors Libby Stabler and
Brenda Feasby along with jun-
iors Molly Crosby and Addison
Baumle. Paulding’s Morgan

blue and white. Bauer totaled a
dozen hits, including three dou-

.442 slugging percentage.
Addison Baumle posted a
.329 batting average for Wayne
Trace while also recording a
.518 slugging percentage. The
junior pitcher/infielder totaled
28 hits on the year, ten of which
were doubles along with a pair
of home runs, while scoring 22
runs and driving in 13. On the
hill, Baumle was 9-4 on the
season with a 1.05 earned run
average, striking out 127 hitters
and walking three in 86 plus in-
nings.
Also a junior pitcher/in-
fielder for Wayne Trace, Molly
Crosby recorded nine wins in
twelve decisions on the mound
for the red, white and blue and

age. She allowed 27 walks and
struck out 82 in 78 plus innings
on the mound. At the plate,
Crosby batted .291 while scor-
ing 17 runs and posting 19 runs
batted in.
Emily Derck finished the
year batting .288 for Antwerp,
recording one double and two
triples in her 15 hits. The soph-
omore posted a slugging per-
centage of .385 while having an
on base percentage of .302.
Brenda Feasby was second
on the Raiders in batting aver-
age at .361 and ripped six dou-
bles and two triples on the
season. The senior center
fielder scored 22 times for
Wayne Trace.
Morgan Riley, a junior on
the Panther roster, finished sec-
ond in the county in batting av-
erage at .373 while getting 22
hits on the year. Riley also

omore Lady Panther had six
doubles and a triple for the ma-
roon and white. Schilt also
tossed 19-2/3 innings for the
Panthers, striking out 17 and
walking ten.
Rounding out the first team is

second in the county in hits with
30. The senior first baseman
had six doubles and a triple for
the red, white and blue while
posting a .353 batting average
to go along with a .447 slugging
percentage.

tion were Paulding’s Jerika

Wayne Trace’s Lady Raiders on to regionals

Progress Sportswriter
BRYAN – Wayne Trace
punched its ticket to the re-
gional tournament on Friday
evening as the Lady Raiders
downed Hicksville 5-2 in the
Division IV district champi-
onship at Bryan.
The Raiders got another
strong pitching performance
from junior Addison Baumle
and took advantage of four
unearned runs to return to the
regional tournament for the
first time since 2010.
“Obviously, we are very
excited for the opportunity to
play in the regional tourna-
ment,” noted Raider head
coach Jack Baumle. “The
girls came out and played a
very good game tonight and
we were able to take advan-
tage of our opportunities to
score.”
The red, white and blue
plated three runs in the sec-
ond inning and would never
trail as they advance to take
on New Riegel (25-4) in
tonight’s regional semifinal.
“New Riegel is a very good
softball team,” continued the
Raider mentor. “They are tra-
ditionally very good and this
year’s team is no exception to
that. We will have to go in
and play well.”
The Lady Raiders dented
the scoreboard with three
runs in the second to take
control of the contest.
After Carley Wright flew
out to start the inning, junior
Addison Baumle singled be-
fore fellow junior Molly
Crosby followed with a triple
that plated Baumle.
Sydney Critten the reached
on an error to put runners on
the corners but the Raiders
weren’t done. Junior catcher
Mackenzie Swary ripped a
two-run double that scored
both Crosby and Critten to
push the margin to 3-0.
Wayne Trace added to the
advantage in the third.
With two outs, Wright dou-
bled before a Baumle single
scored Wright for a 4-0
Wayne Trace lead.
Hicksville did get within 4-
2 in the bottom of the inning,
scoring a pair of unearned
runs but the Aces wouldn’t
get any closer.
The red, white and blue
added its final run in the
fourth.
Following a Critten fly out,
Swary, Emilie Linder and
Brenda Feasby hit back-to-
back-to-back singles before a
Libby Stabler sacrifice fly
plated Swary to push the mar-
gin to 5-2.
From there, the Raiders
shut down the red and white
to seal their trip to the re-
gional tournament on
Wednesday.
“Obviously, we are very
pleased with the victory,”
noted the Raider mentor. “We
knew coming in that
Hicksville was a big chal-
lenge but the girls stepped up
their play tonight and every-
body made plays. It was a
total team effort tonight.”
Addison Baumle picked up
her third straight tournament
victory, running her total to
21 straight innings without al-
lowing an earned run in tour-
nament play. The junior
hurler fanned nine and
walked one in picking up the
complete game win.
Emilie Linder, Brenda
Feasby and Addison Baumle
all had two singles for the
Raider offense with Mackenzie
Swary adding a single and a
double. Carley Wright also had
a double and Molly Crosby
chipped in a triple.
Allison Brickel took the loss
for Hicksville, giving up ten
hits and four earned runs in the
complete game loss with one
strikeout.
Carli Ayers, Michaela Bauer,
Samantha Sell and Jessica
Morgan each had singles for
the Lady Aces, who close their
season with a record of 16-4.
Regional Softball
Blue Jackets will be a
challenge for Raiders
By KEVIN

Sportswriter
NEW RIEGEL – Wayne
Trace and New Riegel each
come into the game riding
win streaks when the two
softball squads meet today,
May 28 in Division IV re-
gional action in Findlay.
The Lady Raiders, cur-
rently 20-7 on the year, are
riding a six game winning
streak and have outscored
their opponents 42-9 in that
streak.
Wayne Trace has raised the
bar in the tournament, posting
victories over Antwerp, North
Central and Hicksville while
outscoring the trio 16-2.
But the challenge hasn’t
been any bigger than today’s
opponent.
The Blue Jackets come into
the contest riding a 13-game
winning streak and hold a 25-
4 record on the season. The
losses for New Riegel have
come to Holland Springfield
(April 17, 6-1), Mohawk
(April 23, 9-7), Oak Harbor
(April 24, 4-2) and Columbus
Bishop Ready (April 25, 3-2).
New Riegel is under the di-
rection of head coach Jamie
Lininger, who is in his 11th
season and holds a career
record of 208-89 (.700 win-
ning percentage).
A year ago, virtually this
same group of players came
up short to Parkway 7-4 in the
regional semifinals. With
eight starters returning from
that squad, the Blue Jackets
know what it takes and will
come in hungry to take that
next step.
The Blue Jackets have been
a regular to tournament suc-
cess, with eight of the previ-
ous ten teams under Lininger
winning at least a sectional
championship. New Riegel
has one state appearance to
go along with three other re-
gional squads in school his-
tory.
In the only meeting be-
tween the two schools in the
past, New Riegel defeated
Wayne Trace 3-0 in the Divi-
sion IV regional finals in
2010.
New Riegel led 1-0 after
one and 2-0 at the end of two
innings in that contest. The
final Blue Jacket run came in
the fourth.
This year’s version of the
Blue Jackets has a stellar
pitcher in senior Taylor
Kirian, who boasts a 1.70
earned run average while
striking out four batters a
game. Kirian is 24-4 on the
season on the hill for New
Riegel and will pitch at the
University of Akron next sea-
son.
Kirian also leads the Blue
Jackets at the plate, hitting
.600 on the year while senior
outfielder Lauren Zoeller bats
.462. Other top hitters for
New Riegel are junior Kara
Scherger (.405), senior Mor-
gan Noftz (.388) and junior
Taylor Arbogast (.365).
The Blue Jackets have the
ability to go deep in nearly
every spot of their lineup as
six different girls have
recorded home runs this year.
Kirian leads the way (four)
but Arbogast (two), Noftz
(one), Zoeller (one), junior
Hailey Theis (one) and soph-
omore Leah Bouillon (one)
all have home runs for the
Blue Jackets as well.
Speed also is a strength for
the Midland Athletic League
squad, led by Noftz and
Scherger with 17 each.
Kirian is also the MAL
Player of the Year for 2014
with Scherger also garnering
First Team honors. Arbogast,
Zoeller and Noftz each
picked up Second Team
awards while Bouillon and
Theis picked up Honorable
Mention.

Outfield play key as Raiders blank NC

BRYAN – The Wayne Trace outfield
came up with some key defensive plays
and Addison Baumle struck out a dozen
North Central hitters as Wayne Trace de-
feated the Eagles 6-0 in Division IV dis-
trict semifinal action at Bryan on
Thursday.
Lady Raider outfielders Brenda
Feasby and Carley Wright each made
two key running catches to highlight the
defensive effort by Wayne Trace.
“Brenda and Carley both made some
very nice plays out there tonight,” com-
mented Raider head coach Jack Baumle.
“Those were two hard hit balls that
Brenda came in and got. Carley ran the
ball down in foul territory and had to go
back and get another one. Our defense
played very well tonight.”
After throwing a perfect game against
Antwerp in the sectional championship,
Baumle followed it up by scattering five
hits in Thursday’s win, allowing only
three base runners to reach second base
on the night.
“Addison did a nice job on the mound
for us again tonight,” added the Raider
mentor and Addison’s dad. “Her pitches
weren’t always working the way they
were supposed to but she was able to
mix it up speed wise and keep them off
balance.”
North Central’s Sabrina Pickford
opened the game with a single and stole
second but would get no further. Baumle
got Alyssa Swank to pop out before
striking out Rachel Oxender and Abbey
Litzenberg.
The Lady Raiders answered by getting
on the board in the home half of the in-
ning.
Emilie Linder led off with a single and
took second on a wild pitch before a
Brenda Feasby groundout moved Linder
to third. Senior Libby Stabler then fol-
lowed with a run-scoring single to put
the Raiders in front 1-0.
“We were able to take advantage of
our opportunities,” noted Baumle.
Wayne Trace pushed the lead to 2-0
thanks to an Eagle error.
Linder led off and reached on an error
by North Central center fielder Macayla
Wildrick, reaching third on the play. The
senior shortstop then scored on a sacri-
fice fly by Brenda Feasby to push the
margin to 2-0.
North Central had its best chance to

score in the fifth.
Tristin Tomblin singled to start the in-
ning before Baumle struck out Kelsie
Sutton and Wildrick flew out for the
second out. However, Shayleigh Bar-
nett reached on a Wayne Trace error and
Pickford followed with a single to load
the bases with two outs.
The Raider hurler, though, escaped
without any damage by striking out
Swank to end the inning.
What the Eagles couldn’t do, Wayne
Trace did in the bottom of the fifth by
taking advantage of North Central mis-
takes.
Linder started the inning by reaching
on an error by Swank at third before
Wildrick also misplayed the ball in left,
allowing Linder to take second.
Feasby reached on an error by Pick-
ford before Stabler reached via a bunt as
all runners were safe to load the bases.
Bailey Bergman then hit a long fly
ball to center field that was misplayed
by Wildrick, scoring both Linder and
Feasby for a 4-0 advantage.
Carley Wright followed with a fly ball
to right field that saw another error by
North Central, plating Bergman for a 5-
0 advantage. Addison Baumle then
drove in Wright with a sacrifice fly that
pushed the margin to 6-0.
“We capitalized when we had the op-
portunity there and that was big,” con-
tinued the Raider mentor. “The girls did
a good job of getting out of the top of the
inning without giving up a run and then
we came back and scored when we had
the chance. The fifth inning all season
has been a big inning for us and it cer-
tainly was tonight.”
The junior Raider pitcher retired eight
of the final nine hitters she faced, includ-
ing setting down North Central in order
in the sixth. In the seventh, Baumle
struck out Tomblin before Sutton
popped out to third. After Wildrick sin-
gled, Barnett grounded out to Stabler to
seal the win.
Linder and Stabler each had a pair of
singles for Wayne Trace with Bergman,
Baumle, Crosby and Swary also adding
singles.
Pickford and Tomblin both recorded
two singles for North Central with
Wildrick also getting a hit.
Makayla Hayes took the loss for
North Central, giving up eight hits and
six runs (one earned) while striking out
three.
