Maumee Valley Planning
Organization (MVPO) is
putting together a multi-
modal Long Range
Transportation Plan for the
five-county region made up
of Defiance, Fulton, Henry,
Paulding and Williams
counties. They are currently
seeking input about trans-
portation in the region
through a short transporta-
tion opinion survey to help
shape the plan.
To take the survey, go to
Y2C9PCK or visit MVPO’s
tion.html and click “Take
the Survey.”
The plan will be multi-
modal and encompass traf-
fic volumes, accidents, road
and bridge conditions, rail
crossings and train charac-
teristics, environmental is-
sues, recreational trails,
population areas including
age and environmental jus-
tice areas, and other areas
pertaining to transportation
and planning for the region.

OAKWOOD – The Oakwood Development
Company (ODC) is collaborating with busi-
nesses as well as individuals to promote the
eastern portion of Paulding County. According
to executive director Damien Morales, the
ODC is actively promoting
the many resources available
in the region in hopes to
build camaraderie, strength
and growth.
One natural resource
available are the many wa-
terways that flow through the
county. When Morales made
his first trip to Oakwood he
saw the potential of the rivers
and what could be done to bring people, dollars
and a sense of pride to the area.
“What better opportunity to promote what
we have than to discover the river up close and
personal,” said Morales.
In order to do so, the ODC is the driving
force behind the first Auglaize River Regatta, to
be held Saturday, June 21 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
“We want to focus on the east side of the
county, near Oakwood. We have wonderful
people to work with, a great community park in
Oakwood and everything downtown is in close
proximity,” Morales said.
He admits they are starting at the ground
floor with their first event, but already he sees
success developing before the first canoe hits
the water.
“When you do something
like this, it’s all about the
people and businesses. As an
economic development
group we want to build rela-
tionships and in the process
keep them in front of us.
Right now, just seeing people
come together, working hard
and pooling their resources
for a common cause is exciting.”
The ODC is drawing from many in the area
to help facilitate the regatta. The paddle race,
using one- or two-person canoes or kayaks will
be 3.5 miles and will launch from Auglaize
Canoe and Kayak located at 24687 Road 207,
outside of Oakwood near the Paulding-Putnam

PAULDING – A majority
of county farmers have fin-
ished planting and replanting
crops and are finishing much
of their side dressing work,
said Paulding County Ohio
State University Extension
agent Sarah Noggle earlier
this week.
“Much of the corn is in that
V-3 and V-4 stage right now,”
said Noggle on Monday. “At
least 70 percent of the side
dressing is done.”
Noggle said that some of
the corn has been knocked
over by “flopping corn syn-
drome,” a condition that
sometimes occurs when the
mesocotyl isn’t fully devel-
oped and strong winds blow
through the field.
“Sometimes the crown
roots aren’t fully developed in
corn plants. This occurs be-
tween the V-3 and V-8 stages,”
said Noggle. “It is also re-
ferred to as ‘rootless corn.’
With the rain we had this past
weekend, the corn should con-
tinue developing and come
out of that.”
Rainfall in the county over
the weekend was heavier in
the southern part, where one to
one-and-a-half inches of rain
Wheat is also looking good.
Noggle said she anticipates
harvest around the traditional
July 4 range, but possibly a
few days past that this year.
“We could be a little behind,
but not much,” said Noggle.
“Some of the wheat got
knocked down in windy con-
ditions last week but it should
be coming back up.”
Weather specialist Rick
McCoy said that future fore-
casts indicate a gradual warm-
ing trend in the summer cli-
mate, but still more than
ample moisture for the rest of
“I know that they are saying
we are going to have a cooler
than normal summer, but I still
have a hunch that we are
going to have a hot and dry
spell at some point,” said
McCoy. “However I don’t
foresee anything extraordi-
nary occurring.”
McCoy is watching the po-
tential development of an El
Nino in the Pacific later this
“If that development does
occur, it could affect our win-
ter in that it would tend to be
more mild. If it doesn’t devel-
op, then we could have a very
harsh winter again this year,”
said McCoy.

Area farmers have spent much of their time in the fields the past few weeks finishing plant-
ing and side dressing their crops such as this farmer along Ohio 49 south of Payne.

occurred. Most areas north of
that, from Payne to Oakwood
northward, received close to
an half inch of moisture.
Seeds that are exposed to
cool, wet soils become subject
to pathogens, which can infect
seeds and hurt seedling
growth. One of the most com-
mon pathogens for corn and
soybeans is Pythium. Noggle
said that she discovered five
types of Pythium in local
fields. However, the agent
noted that beans are starting to
come out of that.
Otherwise, beans are up and
appear to be doing well. With
the recent moisture and rising
temperatures, they should
continue to progress nicely.

PAYNE – The Payne Village
Council heard from one of its own
EMT/firefighters who came before
the council with several concerns and
was wanting answers.
A veteran EMS member of nine
years and a member of the fire de-
partment for 13, Mike James wanted
to know how it came about that
Amber Scheurman was promoted to
captain. Also, he wanted the council
to know the leadership within the fire
department is in need of vast im-
At the last council meeting May
27, the members of council promoted
Amber Scheurman to the position of
captain. At the same meeting, EMS
coordinator Joe Garmyn managed to
remain in his same position, but was
given an additional six months’ pro-
bation through Dec. 31. It was earlier
recommended by Mayor Terry Smith
that Garmyn be demoted to that of an
EMT, citing a lack of leadership and
not providing paperwork in a timely
James asked the council during
Monday night’s meeting how
Scheurman was promoted and that
no one knew it until it was read in the
paper. The mayor asked James if he
had read the current bylaws and
James said he had but didn’t know
they had been changed.
Smith went on to explain how the
promotion came about and that it was
done according to the constitution
and its revised bylaws. However, no
one in attendance seemed to know
when the bylaw changes came about
or who even made them.
“There is no trust or communica-
tion anymore within the EMS or the
fire department. The fire chief (Jamie
Mansfield) doesn’t speak to you. The
communication sucks. It’s unreal,”
said James.
He went on to say how there are
those on the department with much
more experience and then to have to
read in the paper that someone with
three years’ experience got promoted.
James said, “It’s a slap in the face.”
James informed the council that he
was quitting both the fire and the
EMS department.
“I don’t trust them. If we had to go
into a burning fire, I’m not sure any
of them would have your back. It’s
worse than any of you can imagine.
So, I’ve come forward because it
doesn’t matter anymore,” James said.
James, who delivered his concerns
and frustrations in an orderly manner,
then heard from Mayor Smith and
Councilman Ray Speice. “Let me
make a suggestion to you. Why don’t
you meet with the fire and EMS com-
mittee and discuss with them your
concerns. It’s obvious there are issues
within both departments and it needs

ANTWERP – It’s not what
any athletic director wants to
do but when the numbers
don’t lie then sometimes you
have to make a tough deci-
sion. And that is exactly what
Antwerp’s athletic director
(AD), Drew Altimus, had to
do in announcing there would
be no varsity football at
Antwerp High School in
Altimus, who serves the
school as AD and varsity foot-
ball coach, saw the writing on
the wall for some time. The
male student enrollment has
been slipping in recent years’
plus the pool of football play-
ers is not what it has been in
the past.
Altimus has gone through
the roller coaster of emotions
in recent days. “It’s disap-
pointing that it has come to
this. It’s like taking a step
backwards in order to take
two steps forward. I know this
is the right thing to do and I
am the last person who wants
to do it,” he said.
Coach Altimus and the
Archers will field a team for
the upcoming 2014 season be-
fore taking a one-year hiatus
in 2015 at the varsity level.
“We will have a junior var-
sity team in 2015 and then we
plan to be back in 2016 at the
varsity level,” said Altimus.
Right now, it looks as
though the coach will have in
the low 20s on his roster this
upcoming season.
The numbers are low and
Altimus is concerned about
having a team that is predom-
inantly freshmen and sopho-
mores competing on Friday
nights against stronger com-
“The bottom line is the
safety of the kids. We can’t
expect these young kids with
little experience to go out
week after week and compete.
What will happen is that they
will get discouraged and not
want to play the following
year, if at all,” said Altimus.
When canceling an entire
season, it effects not only the
Archers, but also their oppo-
nents and mainly the Green
Meadows Conference. The
league teams will now be
scrambling for a new oppo-
nent to schedule for the 2015
Although the GMC coaches
and athletic directors have all
agreed to support the Archers
and their situation, it could not
become officially approved
until the GMC executive
council, made up of the
schools principals, voted. A
meeting was held on
Wednesday, June 4 with the
the council voting 8-0 allow-
ing Antwerp to run a junior
varsity football team only in
The GMC has a clause in its
constitution where if a school
is unable to field a team, they
may be asked to leave the con-
“That option was men-
tioned, but it was never seri-
ously considered. Our main
concerned is for the kids and
their overall safety,” said
GMC commissioner Tom
Earlier in the week, Altimus
had concerns about the possi-
bility of being asked to leave
the GMC but was confident
that a plan could be worked
“We could have been asked
to vacate the league and that
would have been a night-
mare,” said Altimus. “If push
came to shove, we would
have played, but the confer-
ence understands our dilem-
ma. And because we gave
them 15 months’ notice, I
think they were willing to
move forward and allow us
2015 to regroup,” commented
the Antwerp AD.
Hopefully, with the football
program making some diffi-
cult changes, the Archers will
grow and develop into a
strong program in the future.
Altimus believes the future is
bright, but it will take some
“We will be fine. In the
lower grades there are 40 kids
playing football. The talent is
coming and when we come
back we will be ready to com-
pete,” concluded Altimus.
The 2014 Archer schedule:
Aug. 28 Edon; Sept. 5 Hilltop;
Sept. 12 at Paulding; Sept. 19
at Ayersville; Sept. 26
Holgate; Oct. 3 at Edgerton;

“We cannot lose people like

Please reconsider and work
with the committee toward a
solution. As a council, we do
not know everything that is
going on with those two de-
partments, but it’s time we
find out,” said Speice.
After hearing from the
council, James retreated a bit
and said he would talk to the
committee and for now take a
temporary leave of absence.
In other business, Garmyn
reported 12 EMS runs were

for repair is with AMS in the
amount of $1,417.
Work on the 119 N. Main

Please note that check-in
for the regatta and same-day
registration will be held at the
Oakwood Community Park.
Once completed, participants
will make their way to
Auglaize Canoe and Kayak
for the launch of the 3.5-mile
waterway adventure.
On the day of the regatta,
the community park will be
the stage for entertainment,
food and arts and crafts
throughout the day. The
Oakwood Community Band
will perform at 11 a.m. fol-
lowed by Brian and Poor
Bottom Grass Band scheduled
for noon.
Food will be provided by
CJ’s Place from the Five Span
“We are excited to see
Auglaize Canoe and Kayak,
CJ’s Place and the bands
come together for this. CJ’s is
a relatively new restaurant and
for them to have the opportu-
nity to showcase their food is
a good thing We are getting a
lot of support and we hope
this first year event will grow
and be something we can look
forward to every year,” said
The idea of having the re-
gatta starts at a top notch facil-
ity like Auglaize Canoe and
Kayak and finishing at the
community park where every-
thing will be close together is
something that Morales feels
is a real plus.
“We have been planning,
strategizing and developing
this regatta for eight months
and we have overcome some
challenges. We have a grand
plan and if we can work
through everything logistical-
ly we will be more than
pleased and everyone should
have fun day,” said Morales.

The Amish Cook
By: Lovina Eicher
Mackinac Island. We stayed at
a motel in St. Ignace on Satur-
day night. Sunday morning we
took the ferry over to the island
and spent the day there. It gave
us all some history lessons.
One of our highlights was driv-
ing over the Mackinac Bridge
that connects the Lower Penin-
sula to the Upper Peninsula.
We even saw patches of snow
still on the island. The ferry
ride was chilly as we wanted to
set on top deck. It was quite a
different experience: The won-
ders of God’s creations. We
have often heard of Mackinac
Bridge and Island.
But not until you see it can
you really grasp the wonders of
it. When I asked the children
what the highlight of their trip
was I get different answers
such as the ferry, the bridge, the
pool at the motel. I don’t think
anyone mentioned the island as
their favorite part.
Loretta was very wore out
from all the walking. Finally
we talked to the man at the liv-
ery stable and he let us rent
their buckboard wagon and
Ned, a big workhorse. The
wagon had 3 seats and could
seat all of us. We took in a lot
more scenery after that and
rode around the island for two
When we arrived back to St.
Ignace, the children wanted to
go swimming again. The pool
relaxed them all, especially
Loretta. They also had a hot tub
and that relaxed her muscles.
Loretta can swim and that is an
exercise that she is able to do.
Water relaxes her muscles.
It is Tuesday evening. I’m
sitting out here on the front
porch and it is very quiet, al-
most too quiet. My sisters Ver-
ena and Susan wanted our five
school-age children to come
off the bus there and spend the
night. They will go back on the
bus in the morning. Sister
Emma’s three boys also went.
They have eight children there
from ages 6 to 14 so I’m sure
their evening is quite noisier
than usual.
Meanwhile, daughters Susan
and Verena went for a walk
while daughter Elizabeth is out
here on the porch also writing.
My husband Joe is resting on
his recliner after a hard day’s
work at the factory. Elizabeth
and Susan don’t have to go to
work at the factory this week
except for Friday. Verena and I
were glad for their help here at
home today.
The floors were mopped and
laundry washed, dried and
folded. We had the last of the
laundry in right before the rain
came this afternoon The rain
should give the garden a boost.
I’m enjoying my beautiful
hanging pots of flowers here on
my porch. They were all
Mother’s Day gifts. So far I
have kept them looking nice
with the help of my daughters.
I seem to be able to grow all
kinds of vegetables but flowers
are not my specialty. I love
flowers but I think I either
over-water them or not enough.
Our family had a very nice
relaxing Memorial Day week-
end. We left at 4:30 a.m. on
Saturday morning bound for
We arrived back home safe
and sound Monday around 3
p.m. It was a very nice family
trip that will have good mem-
ories in years to come. How
often do we take our good
health for granted. Having a
daughter that needs extra time
to get around puts us back to a
slower pace. It makes us appre-
ciate our health and gives us a
sympathetic view of other peo-
ple with handicaps. The island
wasn’t very handicapped ac-
cessible but we are glad we all
were able to see it. Seeing is
I think there were a lot of
people on the island that never
heard of or seen Amish before.
We were stared at, asked ques-
tions, laughed at and lots of
pictures were snapped. We all
have the same God so we
aren’t quite so different after
all. Curiosity tends to some-
times bring out rudeness from
some people but may God
bless and forgive each one of

Paulding DAR
to meet June 12
The General Horatio N. Cur-
tis Chapter Daughters of the
American Revolution (DAR)
met for its May meeting at the
Paulding County Carnegie Li-
brary. The meeting was opened
by Chapter Regent Jeanne
Calvert of Oakwood with the
opening DAR rituals and the
pledge to the flag of the USA.
The national defense report
was given by chairman Caroline
Zimmerman on the voluntary
cybersecurity framework which
was announced by the White
House earlier this year. It was
one year ago that the president
signed an executive order di-
recting the administration to
take steps to improve informa-
tion sharing with the private
sector, raise the level of cyber-
security across our critical infra-
structure and enhance privacy
and civil liberties. Cyber risk
management was discussed on
all levels.
In the absence of the secre-
tary and treasurer, the program
was given by the regent. The
name of her program was Mis-
sissippi Moments. This was an
interesting program about her
family trip along the Mississippi
River recently and the historical
facts surrounding that area.
They were near Cahokia,
which was a very large settle-
ment of mound builders (some
were six square miles in diame-
ter; some for living; some for
burials) of some 10,000–20,000
people. It was an agricultural
society and still existed 1,200
A.D. Then they were no more.
No one knows why. This area is
on the Mississippi River and is
owned by the State of Illinois.
“Monk’s Mound” is the largest
earthen mound north of Mex-
At Natchez in 1790, there
were no steamships. People
built boats, then went to
Natchez and sold their boats.
“Natchez under the Hill” is a
term still used down there.
The Natchez Trace went 450
miles to go back home. It was
dangerous traveling the trail
because of bandits. President
Jefferson had the trail
widened and improved for
mail throughout Alabama and
St. Louis. The Natchez Trace
still has some “stands” along
the trace. Meriwether Lewis
died and is buried along this
trace. Several historical
books were suggested read-
ing by the speaker of that era.
The next meeting will be
an open meeting at 1:30 p.m.
June 12 at Three Brothers
restaurant in Paulding. Mem-
bers may bring a guest.
The objects of the DAR are
to perpetuate the memory and
the spirit of the men and
women who achieved Amer-
ican independence and to fos-
ter patriotic citizenship.
Persons who can prove
they are a direct descendant
of a Revolutionary patriot or
someone helped with the war
effort and are interested in
joining the DAR can call Car-
oline Zimmerman at 419-
258-2222 for more

ministered to many in the
area, the invitation is ex-
tended to the community to

The day will begin with
worship service at 9:45 a.m.
as usual. Around 11:15 a.m.,
a meal will be provided in the
fellowship hall and at 12:30

also in Fellowship Hall. This
time together will include pres-
entation of gifts from the con-
gregation as well as a time of
sharing memories.
The planning committee re-
alizes this is Father’s Day and
does not want to take a large
portion of your day, but they do
hope that people will be able to
attend for at least part of the
celebration. Those who cannot
attend are encouraged to send
a card or note to Rev. Ben and
Judy Lowell “Celebration”,

Public schools outperform
charter schools although
the playing field is uneven
By Brian Gerber
Superintendent, Western Buckeye ESC
One of the most ridiculous expansions of governmental in-
terference into education has been the increase in tax
dollars that our leaders in Columbus have sent to support
charter schools. Data shows that a majority of these schools
are failing miserably. Public schools have consistently out-
performed charter schools for years. But our governor sup-
ports choice even though the charter school choice is failing
in the areas of accountability and academic performance.
Public schools continue to
get hammered with political
mandates that defy logic in
an attempt to “improve”
what we do. Charter schools
do not face these same man-
dates. Our state educational
leaders would like for us to
believe that these decisions
are based on sound educational research and their undying
concern for the boys and girls of Ohio. A closer study of the
facts explains how these decisions, sadly, are really made.
Now keep in mind that state educational leaders keep
pushing “accountability” and “data driven decisions” in pub-
lic schools. Every chance they get they point to these two
factors in their criticisms of public education. Remember the
majority of charter schools are failing which makes me ques-
tion how they justify increasing funding for charter schools
with our tax dollars.
It all boils down to political campaigns and money. Once
you get to the bottom line, the picture becomes crystal clear.
It’s against the law for public schools to use tax dollars to
fund political campaigns, tax levies or support individuals
running for office. It should be illegal. I agree completely
with this concept. That’s not how public schools should be
spending their tax dollars even if it was legal. However, char-
ter schools can donate money to political campaigns. Once
they get their guy into office, their guy supports more fund-
ing for them. Charter schools are usually operated by private
companies that are often headed by very wealthy men. If you
very-well-off-ohios-school-funding-dollars/ you can see for
yourself how one man and his two companies contributed
nearly one-half million dollars to political campaigns over
the past three years. The money for these contributions, ac-
cording to the authors of these articles, comes from tax dol-
Charter school people can donate money while public
schools are forbidden from using tax dollars to lobby for
their cause. Is that an even playing field? You judge for your-
self. In my eyes, this is unfair to the students in the public
schools. The bottom line is that I get great pleasure in seeing
our public schools continue to outperform charter schools.
Public schools have the best teachers, staff, and administra-
tors who will continue to work tirelessly to make sure our
public school children will become highly productive and
successful citizens. Let’s keep in mind that public schools
serve ALL students. We educate ALL the students who show
up at our public school doors regardless of their ability lev-
els. We are not selective. We take them all and educate them
all to the best of our ability and beyond. Even though the
playing field is uneven in terms of funding and how those
dollars can be spent, public schools will continue to outper-
form charter schools because that’s what we do and we do it
better than everybody else.

Trainer expresses
pride in hospital
Dear Editor,
The past two months, I
have had the opportunity to
come back and be in Pauld-
ing County after a 25-year
absence. I lived and grew up
in Antwerp, enjoyed the
ability to know everyone in
my home town and school
community and be grateful
for my upbringing in a small
town. So my new career led
me to train the employees at
Paulding County Hospital
(PCH) over the last two
months for their new com-
puter upgrade.
I want to let all of Pauld-
ing County know how hard
the people who work in the
hospital and all the doctors’
offices and the docs them-
selves, have worked to im-
prove your healthcare. These
folks have given up days off,
worked up to 70 hours in a
week to take all the classes
they need. They have been
away from their families and
never once did I hear a sour
As a community you are
very blessed to have people
who work so hard to ensure
your facility is up to date and
to provide you the best care
possible. I am so PROUD to
say I am from Paulding
County and so blessed to have
been able to see all the effort
put into this upgrade by
everyone involved. You are
very lucky to have people
who truly care.

In My Opinion
Too many chiefs?
As I think of my grandma and grandpa, I just wonder what
they would think of the world today. The streets where they
lived and walked, the houses they lived in and everyone they
may have known are gone. Would they embrace cell phones,
computers, Netflix and cable TV?
I know they would be
surprised at the price of
gas, a gallon of milk and a
loaf of bread. They would
be amazed at the new high
schools, the technicality of
the ways of farming and
the informality of what
people wear to church.
I don’t think they could
even fathom what big changes have taken place on our
“downtown” or should I say “uptown” streets. They would in
no doubt be looking for the corner drugstore, a dime store,
restaurants, shoe stores, dress shops and, oh yes, a movie
Instead they would find offices, banks and a few restau-
rants to get a cup of coffee or a piece of pie. We all know
there are not too many of the mom-and-pop stores left in
which to shop. My ancestors would all be surprised at the so-
called super centers where you can buy everything you need
under one roof. I do believe in shopping locally and try and
do that, but we all know it sure isn’t like even 25 years ago.
Big corporations have moved in, and while they offer em-
ployment and perhaps better prices, the friendly corner gro-
cer who knew everyone by name is pretty much no more.
Kudos to the remaining small businesses that keep their
doors open. Thank you to the small, independently owned
restaurants that still serve home-cooked meals.
While we cannot stop change and progress, we can all still
get on the same page and have the common goal of making
our downtown a place we can be proud of and where people
can see and visit their neighbors from the surrounding area.
We live in a world where things are constantly changing.
We have always been a country of change, some good and
some bad. But, you know, we still live in America and can
support our local businesses. We can all begin to build and
work on our own towns. Leaders, citizens, clubs, businesses
and hard workers could accomplish a lot by cooperating.
There is an old saying, “There are too many chiefs and not
enough Indians.” Is this the problem?
Remember, shop local and we will all benefit.

awarded to Paulding County Court
for the commissioners’ signatures.
She reported this grant originates
from the Ohio Department of Reha-
bilitation and Correction. The grant
dollars are used to assist local gov-
ernments in community-based cor-
rections program services designed
to reduce or divert the number of per-
sons committed to state penal insti-
tutions and/or detained in and/or
committed to local corrections agen-
Munger noted there are other
grants she intends to apply for to help
fund residential programs and to as-
sist the indigent with court costs.
Gonzales reported there are at
least 250 people on the County Court
probation program, with 90% of the
participants being Paulding County

Niki Warncke and Liz Keel,
Maumee Valley Planning Organiza-
tion – Warncke presided over the sec-
ond public hearing for the FY2014
Community Housing Impact &
Preservation (CHIP) program. She
reported that the Defiance County,
Paulding County, Defiance City con-
sortium is eligible for $1.1 million.
She will be applying for the grant on
behalf of the consortium.
The FY2014 CHIP program is bro-
ken down into four activities: 1) Owner
Rehabilitation, 2) Owner-occupied
Home Repair, 3) Rental Home Repair,
4) and Administration and Fair Hous-
Matt Davis, Maumee Valley Plan-
ning Organization, provided an update
on the progress of the Moving Ohio
Forward program. This grant was
made possible as a result of the Ohio
Attorney General Mike DeWine’s ef-
forts in a settlement with five of the na-
tion’s largest mortgage holders over
foreclosure abuses, fraud, and unfair
and deceptive mortgage practices.
The funds from these settlements
are being funneled back to communi-
ties and used to demolish vacant, aban-
doned and blighted properties that
detract from existing home values.
Funds were allocated to all 88 counties
in Ohio. The allocation formula is
based on the percentage of foreclosures
filed in each county between 2008 and
2011. Paulding County was awarded
$104,296, with no requirement for
match dollars.
Twenty-seven applications were
submitted for consideration. To date,
10 projects have been completed, with
one demolition under way and another
In March 2014, $7,800 additional
grant dollars were allocated to Pauld-
ing County. Davis reported the grant
currently has a balance of $5,105.31.
He suggested a couple of options to ac-
complish completing the pending dem-
olition project.

Adopt a Dog
Hello everyone! My name is Rex and I am one handsome fella! I am
a medium-sized, mixed breed adult, just not sure exactly how old I
am. I am a really nice guy and get along with my doggy friends. I like
to run and play, take naps, and snuggle. I am looking for a loving for-
ever home where I will be spoiled with lots of toys and bones, as well
as a warm comfy bed to sleep in! I would be so happy if you would
come and visit me here at the kennel, maybe you will even let me
come home to live with you! Hope to see you soon! For more infor-
mation about me, please contact the Paulding County Dog Kennel at

Are you skeptical or do you
believe everything you read
and hear? I believe I am
gullible because I tend to be-
lieve in things like UFOs,
crop circles, Big Foot and
chupacabras. I believe in
wishing on a star, not step-
ping on sidewalk cracks, not
walking under ladders and
that if a black cat crosses your
path it means ... “bad luck.”
I have always heard a lot of
old sayings and wives tales
and after doing some re-
search, I found out some sur-
prising information. Let me
ask you if you have ever
heard of these and whether
you believe they are true or
1. A cat will suck a baby’s
breath away from them.
2. Turkeys are so dumb
they will stand in the rain and
drown before moving.
3. Opossums hang by their
4. It is against the law to
kill a preying mantis in the
United States.
5. Elephants are afraid of a
6. If you handle a baby
bird, the mother will reject it.
Now what do you think?
Are these sayings true or
I don’t really know who
decides if they are true or
false, but the statements
above are all false. To think, I
have lived my entire life
thinking these were true.
Some of the top stories (ru-
mors) circulating now are:
1. A claim is being made
that the U.S. dollar will col-
lapse on July 1, 2014 because

of the passing of HB 2847.
2. If you enter your ATM
PIN number backwards in the
bank machine, it will sum-
mon the police.
3. There is a warning that
parking lot car jackers are
placing flyers on rear win-
dows of cars.
4. Animal Planet documen-
tary purportedly reveals the
existence of mermaids.
5. A claim is being made that
the government is preventing
Volkswagen’s XL1 model car
from being sold in the U.S. be-
cause the vehicle is too fuel-ef-
The previous five thought
provoking accounts are being
circulated and I do not know if
they are true or false. What do
you believe? If you find out, let
me know and I’ll give you

Creatures at the nature center
By Mark Holtsberry
Education specialist
Paulding SWCD
Many wonderful creatures can be seen at the
nature center park and grounds. Snapping tur-
tles are very visible if careful attention is
given. Large specimens may weigh more than
35 pounds. Though they are very abundant
they are not seen as frequently as most other
turtles. From May through June, females may
be seen crossing roads in search of sites to lay
their eggs. Although the snapping turtles pow-
erful, keen edged jaws are capable of doing
great damage to a carelessly placed finger, sto-
ries of snapping broom handles in half are an
exaggeration. I have seen a snapping turtle the
size of a basketball and had no intention of in-
troducing myself.
The northern map turtle is another visible
resident of the nature center. The female is
bigger than the male. The turtle gets its name
from the network of fine yellow lines that
crisscross around its neck. These lines almost
look like a topographical map. These lines are
very noticeable on young specimens but they
fade with age. Map turtles may be active year
round and have been observed walking around
under the ice during winter time.
The most frequently seen turtle at the park
are midland painted turtles. These turtles can
be seen basking in the sun on a log in the
water. Sometimes a dozen or so, can be seen
on a log on any given sunny day. Their pat-
terns look as if they were painted on by hand.
Only the midland painted turtle occurs in
Although an occasional individual may at-
tempt to bite when first captured, these turtles
usually become very tame. These turtles are
seen crossing the road, walking on the trails
or on the banks. With the changing of the
weather, midland painted turtles seek deep
water and burrow into the mud or debris at the
bottom. The small amount of oxygen they
need is observed from the water through the
inner lining of the mouth. Be careful on the
trails not to step and injure these turtles, they
are just trying to get where they need to go.
Enjoy the wonders and beauty at the nature

Carnegie Library, shares some of the items children may win

PAULDING – The Chil-
dren’s Room at the main his-
toric Carnegie Library in
Paulding announces its 2014

The fun begins with an ex-
plosive kickoff event at the

and his science show. Chil-
dren will love his fast-paced,
upbeat, and totally amazing

Every name is a story
As I walked the track at the
Relay for Life a week ago, I
found myself reading the
names, and in some cases, mes-
sages, on the luminary candle
bags surrounding the track. The
more I read, the more it hit me
that every name I was reading
represented some kind of a
Some names represented
those who have passed on be-
cause of cancer. Others repre-
sented families who have, or
are, going through cancer strug-
gles. Still others are tributes and
salutes to survivors who have
battled the disease and others
say, “thank you,” to caretakers
who have set themselves aside
for the lives of the suffering.
Once such servant is Beth
Ann Fawcett, who has literally
given her life up to assist a
young child battling the hideous
disease. A resident of Decatur,
Ind., Beth Ann was in a position
where she couldn’t bear any
children of her own. One day it
hit her that perhaps she could
assist a suffering or forsaken
child to have a better life. I’m
sure there was no way she could
have anticipated what was to
come, but I am just as sure that
she would do it all over again if
faced with the question.
Beth inquired with an adop-
tion agency for the sole purpose
of adopting a child with need.
Through a series of steps, her
loving heart was overwhelmed
when she was presented with
the possibility of adopting
“Ebony,” a small child battling
cancer. In fact, beyond a doubt,
she says, she knew that’s what
God wanted her to do.
That was several years ago.
During the past few years, Beth
Ann has spent most of her time
taking Ebony to hospitals, can-
cer treatment centers and vari-
ous places for treatments. A
little over a year ago, she lost
her job because the employer
could no longer afford to retain
her position in light of the num-
ber of absentees.
At first, it was thought that
Ebony’s cancer was a type that
could be treated during child-
hood with strong hope for re-
mission and potential recovery
once she reached her teenage
years, going into adulthood.
In spite of the tears and
heartache, little Ebony has
grown to be nine years of age.
Her cheerful smile and happy
countenance has been the joy
of the nursing staff at area hos-
pitals. In fact, it is said that
Ebony’s positive spirit is a lift-
ing spirit to those children who
are in similar situations when
she spends time in local hospi-
One day in a church service,
the minister asked those who
would like a special touch from
Jesus to raise their hands as
though they were raising a
“cup” up to Him. Little
Ebony raised her hand and
then looked at her mother and
said, “I want Jesus’ touch,
too!” For those who know
her, there is no question that
He filled her cup with joy to
pass out to others.
Three months ago, Beth
Ann was dealt a severe blow.
Tests indicated that Ebony’s
cancer had crossed a line and
now appears to be less cur-
able than what was first
thought. She was devastated
but when things were ex-
plained to Ebony, she was un-
daunted and never changed
her smile.
These days, Ebony wants
to take in everything she can.
On Memorial Day, she said to
her mother, “I want to go see
the soldiers.” Moved by her
situation, the City of Decatur
recently had a birthday party
for her, a fundraiser in which
a check for a large some of
money was presented to her
All over that area, there are
signs posted that state, “Pray
for Ebony.” But they are
more than signs, they repre-
sent a story, just as those sur-
rounding the Paulding relay
track and other signs in our
area do.
Paulding prohibits discharging
grass clippings onto streets
PAULDING – Paulding Village Council met
in regular session on Monday, June 2.
At the last council meeting, village adminis-
trator Harry Wiebe noted that Liz Keel of the
Maumee Valley Planning Organization recently
relayed the third round of mailings for the in-
come survey. Keel has only received about half
of the responses needed. On Monday, Wiebe ad-
vised council that it may have to consider an-
other survey.
The survey is important to the village because
if the village qualifies as a low-to-moderate in-
come community it allows the village to qualify
for various grant money and financial assistance.
Wiebe encourages everyone to fill out the survey
and return it as soon as possible.
Mayor Greg White commented on the upcom-
ing John Paulding Days parade and festivities
June 5-6 and reminds everyone to attend and
have fun.
The five council members present unani-
mously approved the village administrator’s
agenda, which included:
• The village has received an alternate pro-
posal to replace the waterline by McDonald’s
using an open cut procedure at a cost of $26,000.
According to Wiebe, this change and the sup-
porting documents have been reviewed by and
met with the approval of village solicitor Mike
Jones. Jones had noted in the last council meet-
ing that the Access Engineering proposal con-
cerning the waterline replacement included a
couple of revisions that would be forwarded to
Wiebe for subsequent presentation to council.
• Wiebe requested the transfer of monies re-
ceived from the water-related Atrizine Class Ac-
tion Lawsuit from the general fund to the water
fund in the amount of $69,664.07. This was an
issue regarding appropriations for 2014 when
council met on Dec. 30 with the original inten-
tion that the money be put into the water fund.
• An assessment has been made for water,
sewer and refuse charges for the residence
owned by Debra K. Gray pursuant to council au-
thorization on March 16, 2009.
Finance Director Melissa Tope requested and
council unanimously approved moving
$296,323.17 from the General Fund to the fol-
lowing funds: Water (605) $100,000; Sewer
(604) $75,000; Street (201) $101,323.17; Gen-
eral (101) $20,000.
Council, during its May 19 meeting, unani-
mously suspended the rules, declared an emer-
gency and passed Ordinance No. 1482-14
regulating and preventing the discharging of
grass and/or grass clippings into the public
streets or highways of the village.
Mayor White noted that the grass clippings
plug up the sewers and generally consists of 80
percent of the material collected in the catch
basins when they are cleaned.
Councilman Randy Daeger inquired concern-
ing the future of the old Hotel Barnes property
now owned by the village. White said that the
building and grounds committee will be dis-
cussing this in a future meeting.
The next scheduled council meeting will be
6:30 p.m. Monday, June 16.

On Memorial Day weekend,
Mr. Brian Jacobs’ 2013-14
kindergarten class of Paulding
Elementary got together at
Woodbridge Campground out-
side of Paulding for a fun day.
The day consisted of a fishing
derby, hanging out with class-
mates and a lunch. About 45
adults and children attended.
The children all received fish-
ing poles, bubbles, Frisbee
and a small ball. The ODNR
donated the fishing poles and
Woodbridge Campgrounds al-
lowed the group to fish in its
pond. The day was a success.
Jacobs appreciates all the par-
ents and especially Wood-
bridge Campgrounds and all
the local donations to help
with the supplies for the first
kindergarten fishing derby.

One of the things I love
most about gardening is that
I’ll never ever in a million
years know everything there
is to know about it. (And I’m
not exaggerating.) For the
perpetually curious, garden-
ing has an infinite number of
lessons to be learned.
Sure, you may master the
basics over time, but then
Mother Nature throws you
for a loop. Last winter, any-
one? And it’s a big, wide
world out there with some-
thing new and amazing
around every corner.
My garden taught me some
things this spring and I’m bet-
ting yours did too. I’m trying
to be a good student by taking
notes so I don’t forget what I
First, I learned that some-
times it pays to be a procras-
tinator. As the spring season
wore on, I could have sworn
that some of my plants had
bitten the dust. I blamed the
winter and mourned their loss
and put removing them on the
to-do list. But the rumors of
the death of some of them
were greatly exaggerated.
We lost the Kalopanax tree
for sure, but the sweet gum
that we thought was a goner
was just sleeping in. I think it
was the very last tree to wake
up. I thought we’d lost nearly
all our ornamental grasses
too, but it turns out they were
just waiting until it was safe
to come out.
It was the same with the
roses. They had a sickening
amount of die-back, but I cut
that off and hoped for the
best. I’m simply amazed at
how they’ve returned and
aren’t that much smaller than
they would have been in a
normal year.
I also learned the impor-
tance of always wearing
gloves when weeding. I don’t
always do that because it’s
easier to pull the small weeds
if I’m not encumbered by
cloth on my fingers, but this
year, they’re a must. We’re
finding poison ivy seedlings
everywhere, much more than
in years past.
We have enough Washing-
ton hawthorn seedlings every
spring to forest the entire
county with them, and a
young hawthorn seedling
looks very much like a young
poison ivy seedling. I can’t
tell you the number of times I
almost plucked the poison ivy
as I was tooling along, yank-
ing the hawthorns.
I learned that you just can’t
let your guard down when it
comes to rabbits. We usually
cage smaller trees and shrubs
to protect them during the
winter from rabbits gnawing
them off, but we didn’t do it
with the blueberry plants and
they got chewed all the way
to the ground.
Amazingly, they’ve recov-
ered, although I don’t know if
we’ll have any blueberries
this year. This won’t happen
next year, because we’re con-
structing an enclosure for
those and the blackberries to
keep the birds from enjoying
them before we do. It will
keep the rabbits out too.
There’s a lesson I relearn
every spring and that’s to not
sweat it if I don’t get seeds in
the ground “on time.” I
should know by now that
Mother Nature’s calendar
doesn’t operate on as strict a
schedule as mine and she
gives us quite a bit of wiggle
room when it comes to plant-
In many cases, seeds that
get planted on the late end of
things generally catch up.
They seem to grow extra fast.
I noticed that plants in gen-
eral have done that this year.
Our spring got a late start, but
just look at the gardens now!
You’d never know that we
just emerged from one of the
worst winters ever. Some
plants even seemed to love it.
The hostas have never looked

thing this year? Send me an

Jamy Manson and Sue Deatrick recently finalized plans for this summer’s young adult reading
Paulding library makes reading
worthwhile for area teens
Feature Writer
PAULDING – The Pauld-
ing Library is once again pro-
moting a summer reading
program for young adults.
This year, in addition to re-
wards for individual reading
efforts, there will be a grand
prize for the one who reads
the most books during the
time span.
Kickoff for this year’s pro-
gram will occur on Tuesday,
June 17. The special effort
will conclude on Aug. 12
when there will be final draw-
ings and the final grand prize
At the kickoff time, there
will be games, including a
“minute to win it” game. The
next meeting will occur on
July 14 with outdoor games
and an animal collage. Things
will wrap up with the Aug. 12
meeting. All meetings will be
at 6 p.m.
Those participating, be-
tween the ages of 12 and 18,
are asked to keep a log of the
books they have read and pe-
riodically record at the li-
“They can all come
through the summer and reg-
ister books they have read in
order to win prizes,” said
Jamy Manson. “They can
read any books or magazines
that they would like. They
can also do eBooks. They just
need to make sure that they
write it in their logs.
“They can either report it
right when they read it or wait
and report it when they come
to the summer meetings,”
continued Manson. “A spe-
cial prize will be given at the
end of the summer for the one
who reads the most books.”
Sue Deatrick said that one
of the main goals of the pro-
gram is to familiarize teens
with the teen section of the li-
brary. She noted that another
element of the program will
be a time of answering trivia
“We will also be looking
for book recommendations,”
said Deatrick. “We plan to
have a time of sharing what
we read.”
Deatrick said that a new
emphasis on teen reading ac-
tually started this past Febru-
ary and has had a good
response. “We want to chal-
lenge teens to read to keep
them reading,” Deatrick said.
“We want them to become fa-
miliar with the library and to
meet other teens who read.
We want them to become ac-
quainted with the librarians
and the ways of the library.”
Manson said that it is not
necessary to have a library
card to be a part of the pro-
gram, but teens are also in-
vited to seek out a card. In so
doing, said Manson, they
open up to a whole new
world of books, CD’s, videos,
magazines and can also ac-
cess computer use.
“We plan to have teen night
every third night of the
month,” said Manson. “This
is open to anyone in the
county, or even outside of the
county. There are no geo-
graphical limitations to this
special time. It’s open to any-
one who would like to partic-
GUEST MINISTER – Father Randy Giesige, from St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Defiance, gave
the opening prayer during session June 3 at the Ohio House of Representatives. Father Giesige
was a guest of State Rep. Tony Burkley (R-Payne). “It was a pleasure to have Father Giesige per-
form the opening prayer during Session today,” Rep. Burkley said. “Hosting a pastor from my
district is such a special honor and I know that I, as well as my fellow colleagues, enjoyed Father
Giesige’s thoughtful prayer.”

Dog breeds especially
compatible with seniors
Pets often make ideal
companions. They are
around when a person needs
support, they can provide
protection for those living
alone, they’re always will-
ing to lend an ear to prob-
lems, and many tend to offer
unconditional love. Seniors
facing an empty nest or the
loss of a spouse may find
pets can buoy their spirits.
Studies have shown that
seniors can benefit both
mentally and physically
from having a pet around.
Pets can alleviate anxiety,
depression and boredom.
While pets can provide
comfort and companionship,
they remain a significant
responsibility. Seniors
should find an animal that
will fit in with their
lifestyles. This is an impor-
tant consideration for those
seniors who travel frequent-
ly or have mobility issues.
In addition, men and
women living in apartments,
senior communities or
assisted living facilities
should determine if there are
any pet restrictions in place.
Those seniors who have
decided that a dog will be
the best fit can choose among
several breeds that may be a
good match for their needs.
When selecting a dog, consid-
er both size and temperament.
Smaller dogs tend to be
easier to handle and will need
less maintenance. They are
easily carried and won’t take
as long to bathe and groom.
Smaller dogs also consume
less food than larger breeds,
reducing the expense of dog
food and the hassle of wran-
gling large, heavy bags of
Temperament is also
important, as some breeds
tend to be more easygoing
than others. Larger breeds
may be preferable to a small-
er breeds, which tend to be
However, always remem-
ber there are pros and cons to
each breed, and each dog will
demonstrate his own person-
ality traits.
The following are some
dogs that can be especially
compatible with seniors:
• Pug: Equally playful and
willing to be a lap dog, the
pug requires little exercise
and grooming. The breed is
typically nonaggressive and
submissive. Pugs are good-
natured and playful; they
don’t often bark and are easy
to train.
• Shih Tzu: The Shih Tzu
lives for attention, but this
breed can be dominant and
difficult to train. The Shih Tzu
will be alert to its surround-
ings and, despite its small
stature, can be a good watch-
•Pomeranian: Pomeranians
look like big balls of fur and
can bring a smile to an
owner’s face. The breed tends
to be perky, can display dom-
inance and can be difficult to
train. Because Pomeranians
can be dog-aggressive, they
may be best as the only pet in
the house.
• Yorkshire terrier: The
Yorkie is a diminutive breed
in size only, as they tend to
have exuberant personalities
that dwarf their stature. The
ideal lap dog, Yorkies want to
lie around and lounge, though
some do like to bark. If the fur
is kept short in a “puppy cut,”
the dog can be easy to main-
• Pembroke Welsh Corgi:
This medium-sized dog hails
from Wales and typically
requires only moderate exer-
cise and little grooming. They
are easy to train and moder-
ately dominant. They don’t
bark excessively, and they
often get along with other
• Schnauzer: Available in
three sizes, Schnauzers are
good companions and protec-
tors. This is an intelligent and
loyal breed and will need to
be kept amused to stave off
• Brussels Griffon: These
dogs do not shed, but they
will require professional
grooming at least once every
3 months. If socialized early,
the Griffon can be a good
companion but will likely
remain wary of strangers.
They are good watchdogs and
devoted to their owners.
Celebrate dad and some
history this Father’s Day
Father’s Day has been cel-
ebrated in one form or
another since the beginning
of the nineteenth century.
Perhaps the most driving
force behind Father’s Day
was Senora Dodd, who
thought of the idea of a day to
honor fathers while listening
to a Mother’s Day sermon in
1909. Having been raised by
her father, Dodd wanted to
honor the sacrifices that
fathers make.
Father’s Day was not for-
mally considered a holiday
until 1972, when a
Congressional Act officially
designated the third Sunday in
June Father’s Day.
Families celebrate Father’s
Day in many ways. This year
Father’s Day falls on Sunday,
June 15. Dads who are history
buffs may want to celebrate
this year’s holiday by remi-
niscing about the notable
events that have occurred on
June 15 through the years.
Here are just some of the
many historical events that

This is the fourth year that
Paulding County 4-Her
Austin Conlon has served as
a counselor at the summer 4-
H Camp at Camp Palmer in
Fulton County. These days,
Conlon realizes the experi-
ence has not only been fun,
but has given him the oppor-
tunity to look at things from
an adult perspective.
This year’s camp will take
place July 9-13. However,
registration forms for those
attending are due by June 23.
Paulding County assistant
program director Staci Hiler
noted that this year’s goal is
to have 150 in attendance be-
tween campers and coun-
This year’s theme is “Bake
Up a Good Time.” Camp is
open to both 4-H and non-4-
H members. Cost is $160 for
those in 4-H and $185 for
non-4-H members. The expe-
rience is a five day and four
night camp.
“Each kid is assigned to a
cabin based on age and gen-
der,” said Hiler. “During the
day, group participation is
based on a variety of different
ages and genders so that kids
have a chance to meet other
kids from around the county.”
Activities during the day
include line dancing, canoe-
ing, archery, swimming, zi-
pline, gagaball, basketball,
hockey, team building activi-
ties, cabin videos and camp-
fire. There is also a camp
store available to the
There are 32 camp coun-
selors that have been properly
trained for the position. There
will be at least three coun-
selors per cabin; in addition,
adult counselors are available
to oversee the entire program.
“There are three home-
cooked meals per day and
snacks available before bed-
time,” said Hiler. “There is
also a nurse on the grounds
for 24-hour care.”
Hiler noted that Kristina
Williams is serving as the
camp director, with an adult
staff person to assist with
each cabin. Hiler will also be
there for the week.
“We want to make new
friends and learn leadership
roles,” said Hiler. “We want
to also encourage last year’s
campers to become coun-
selors next year. We like to
help people come out of their
In addition, there will be a
special Cloverbud camp on
July 12.
Hiler smiled as she said,
“There are no cell phones al-
lowed. We want kids to be out
in nature and become familiar
with nature. We want them to
learn cooperativeness and
“I love to watch kids have
fun and to be there to help
them,” said Conlon. “It feels
pretty good when you get to
help a kid. It feels pretty good
to get away and have a good
week and help kids who are
going through stuff.”
“It is the best part of my
summer,” commented Anne
Eklund, an eighth grader
from Wayne Trace. “I’ve
been there before. I like meet-
ing a lot of new people. I like
the skits and line dancing. I
like everything about camp.”

able on-line by going to

“We had talked before the
race and we felt his best race
was the 1600,” noted Archer
head coach Cord Ehrhart. “We
decided that we were going to
just do the best we possibly
could in the mile and then let
things work themselves in the
two mile. He ran a personal
best so it was a great race for
him and he just missed finish-

AKRON – Cuyahoga Heights pitcher
Meredith Chopka retired 19 of the final
21 batters she faced and dominated the
final six innings to lead the Redskins to
a 6-1 victory over Wayne Trace in the
Division IV state semifinals at Firestone
Stadium in Akron Friday.
After the Lady Raiders got to Chopka
for a run in the first, the Redskin hurler
controlled the rest of the game, keeping
the Wayne Trace bats at bay and never
letting a runner past first in the final six
innings. It was a strong effort that Cuya-
hoga Heights coach Christy Zawadzki
has seen before and expected.
“She really settled down there after the
first inning and showed the kind of
pitcher she is,” Zawadzki stated. “I think
there were a little bit of nerves and emo-
tions that we had to get under control but
once we did that, we played the way we
are capable of playing.”
“The first inning Wayne Trace came
out and was able to take advantage of
their opportunity,” Chopka noted. “But
after we were able to come back and
score, I relaxed after that and then I just
pitched and my teammates played great
defense like they have all year.”
In the opening frame, Brenda Feasby
reached on an error with one out before
Libby Stabler walked to put runners at
first and second. After Bailey Bergman
flew out, Carley Wright followed with a
single that plated Feasby for a 1-0 advan-
Cuyahoga Heights, though, responded
with a pair of runs in the second. Lauren
Goetz led off with a fly ball that eluded
the Raider defense for a triple to start the
rally. After Jenna Stegmaier popped out,
Dayna Denner tripled to score Goetz and
knot the contest at 1-1.
Chopka drew a two-out walk before
Samantha Rodriguez reached on an error
that allowed Denner to score for a 2-1
Redskin advantage. It would be all the
runs Cuyahoga Heights would need.
“We made a couple of defensive mis-
takes that hurt us,” commented Wayne
Trace head coach Jack Baumle. “But we
didn’t throw the ball as well as we can
either and we didn’t hit the ball consis-
tently. They are a good team and they
came out and made good contact early
Chopka allowed only a fourth inning
single by Addison Baumle and a fifth in-
ning single to Sydney Critten the rest of
the way, keeping the Raider offense from
putting together any type of threat.
Cuyahoga Heights also was stellar de-
fensively, led by Stegmaier at shortstop.
The junior fielded anything remotely
close and defense is something the Red-
skins take pride in.
“We take pride in making plays defen-
sively,” added Zawadzki. “It is some-
thing we put a lot of work into and we
want to keep teams from getting extra
While Chopka was controlling the
Raider bats, her teammates widened the
margin in the second.
With one out, left fielder Brittany
Nero singled with Goetz following with
a single to put runners at first and sec-
Stegmaier ripped a RBI-single to left
to score Nero for a 3-1 lead but Goetz
was cut down on the play trying to reach
third for the second out. Denner then fol-
lowed with a RBI double to score
Stegmaier and make it 4-1.
Falorio followed by reaching on an-
other Raider error, scoring Stegmaier to
push the advantage to 5-1, as Baumle’s
day on the mound was done.
The Raider junior suffered the loss,
giving up three earned runs, six hits and
a walk in 1-2/3 innings.
“We didn’t get off to a good start and
you know coming in that you can’t give
teams extra outs,” continued the Raider
“It was a shaky start but we did a good
job of settling down and just playing the
game after the first inning,” commented
the Redskin hurler. “We believe in our-
selves and we work very, very hard. “
Cuyahoga Heights added one more
run in the fifth.
With junior Molly Crosby now pitch-
ing and two outs, Kaitlynn Gervase sin-
gled to right before Brianna Swanson
reached on a Raider error.
Nero then made the Lady Raiders pay,
singling to center field to score Gervase
and set the margin at 6-1.
“We prepared for this game all year,”
Chopka added. “We put in all of the time
and the hard work to get to this level and
we wanted to get to tomorrow. I think we
relaxed after we came out and scored
and then we just had to play the way we
were capable of and we did that.”
In relief, Crosby tossed 4-1/3 innings
allowing five hits, an unearned run, and
one walk and struck out two.
“This group of kids is just a fun group
of kids to be around,” continued Za-
wadzki. “They have a routine that we do
on every bus ride and I think it helps to
relax them before the game. We’ve never
been here before and we came in with
the attitude that we just wanted to play
up to our level and take our chance from
there. Wayne Trace is a good softball
team and they have a lot to be proud of.”
Chopka sealed the victory by getting
Baumle, Crosby and senior Madison
McClure, who returned from an injury
and was able to pinch hit in the seventh,
in order to advance the Redskins to the
state championship game.
Cuyahoga Heights finished with 11
hits on the night, including a combined
7 of 15 effort by the first four hitters.

hits for the Lady Redskins with Stegmaier
adding one. Nero also had a pair of hits while
Gervase and Swanson added the other Cuyahoga
Heights’ hits.
Chopka finished the contest allowing three
hits and a walk while fanning three to pick up
the complete game victory and move to 20-3
on the season. The Redskins moved to 22-3
overall on the year.
Sydney Critten, Addison Baumle and
Wright each had singles for the Lady Raiders,
who wrapped up their year with a record of 22-
“This experience has been great,” noted Ad-
dison Baumle. “This has been a goal all season
long and we had some great leadership from
our seniors this year.”
“Our seniors were tremendous,” com-
mented the Raider head coach. “They have
been leaders for us all season long.”

Friday. The Raiders fell to Cuyahoga Heights, 6-1.
Libby Stabler and outfielders Brenda Feasby
and Madison McClure all wrapped up their
Raider careers in the loss.
“Emilie has been our leader and led us in
nearly offensive category this year,” added the
Wayne Trace mentor. “Libby has really come
along and done a great job for us this year both
offensively and defensively. Brenda played
with a broken hand today and made so many
plays. And it was great for Madison to get into
today. She had a tough year with battling in-
juries but it was good to be able to get her into
today’s game. They are a great group not only
on the softball field but academically and just
in the community.”
“You know, those kids have been through a
lot and they just continued to work hard,”
noted the elder Baumle. “They are great aca-
demically, community-wise and on the play-
ing field. They have a lot to be proud of in
leading this team to the state tournament.”

Paulding sweeps Jays in
ACME double header
DHI Media Correspondent
PAULDING – High school ACME baseball
is like no other in sports because there is no
preseason to prepare.
One week a player is an underclassman,
playing a short six-week spring schedule with
senior teammates. The next week, the seniors
have graduated and the player is suddenly an-
other class older playing with a different line
up with no time to prepare for the summer sea-
That’s what is called “training under fire” in
the real world.
The St. John’s ACME baseball team ran into
fire at Paulding last Thursday night and it
came from the arm of the Panthers’ starting
pitcher, Damion Agner. Agner struck out 15
batters as the Panthers won the first game of
the doubleheader 6-1.
Blue Jay bats were silent to start the contest
as Agner struck out the first five batters he
faced to open the game.
St. John’s starter, senior-to-be Gage Seffer-
nick, was nearly as effective, holding the Pan-
thers scoreless while surrendering only one hit
in the first two innings.
Agner struck out three more Jays in the third
inning as the Jays got their first base-runner of
the game with a Josh Warnecke walk.
The Panthers jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the
bottom of the inning with four consecutive
hits by Lupe Martinez, Corbin Edwards, Tre-
ston Gonzales and Agner. A walk to Jarrett Sit-
ton plated another run and an error brought
home the third run of the inning.
The Jays finally got their first hit of the
game as Seffernick tried to help his own cause
with a single to right field but Agner whiffed
two more Jays to maintain the shutout.
St. John’s got on the scoreboard in the fifth
as J.R. Keirns and Josh Warnecke singled.
Sophomore Timothy Kreeger grounded out to
second and the throw to first was high as
Keirns came around to score.
Paulding added more runs in the fifth inning
to chase Seffernick after back-to-back walks.
Senior Austin Heiing came in as relief and
Agner came home on a double steal. The Pan-
thers extended the lead to 6-1 as Alex Estrada
popped to shallow right field to score the run-
Agner used his fastball, clocking up to 93
mph, to keep the Jays scoreless the rest of the
way for the five-run victory.
The Jays had four hits in the game with Sef-
fernick, Keirns, Warnecke and Jacob Young-
peter all notching singles against Agner.
The second game of the night saw both
teams double their offensive run production
from the first game as the Panthers rolled 12-
2 in five innings.
The Jays scored in the first inning as Young-
peter reached base, stole second and came
home on a single by Jesse Ditto to give St.
John’s a brief 1-0 lead.
The Panthers came roaring back, pounding
out six hits to score 10 runs in the first two in-
nings for a 10-1 lead.
Paulding added a run in the third and fourth
innings to extend the lead.
The Jays used the steal again in the fifth in-
ning to manufacture a run as Ryan Hellman
walked, swiped second, went to third on a balk
and scored on a groundout by Warnecke to
make the final score 12-2.

St. John’s 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 – 1

A great sports year for county
It’s been a great year for
Paulding County high school
All three sports seasons have
seen tremendous success for
Paulding County high school
athletes with representatives
from county schools participat-
ing in their respective state
The year started off with
Antwerp’s Sam Williamson
making the trip to Columbus
back in the fall. Williamson ad-
vanced to take part in the Divi-
sion III boys cross country state
meet where he returned after
finishing tenth in a time of
Antwerp’s girls golf team
also posted a great year, finish-
ing as the Green Meadows
Conference runner-ups behind
league champion Hicksville.
Paulding County also sent a
team to the state championship
football game in the fall when
Wayne Trace made its initial
appearance in the Canton area.
The Raiders didn’t bring
home the state title but the red,
white and blue made county
residents proud, finishing their
season as the Division VI state
In the winter, Wayne Trace’s
boys basketball season was de-
layed as the Raiders didn’t start
until late December due to the
football team’s extended sea-
Battling the weather and the
shortened schedule due to foot-
ball, the Raiders never were
able to have a normal week for
the most part but the red, white
and blue didn’t care. Wayne
Trace captured the Green
Meadows Conference champi-
onship with a perfect 7-0
record but were far from being
They posted a sectional win
over Continental before defeat-
ing Pettisville and Green
Meadows Conference rival Ay-
ersville in the district.
After rolling past Buckeye
Central in the regional semifi-
nals, it was rival Crestview
who awaited the Raiders in the
regional championship.
It was the Knights who
jumped in front early before
Wayne Trace rallied to pull
within four points in the second
half. However, Crestview
made the plays down the
stretch to defeat the Raiders for
the third time in the season,
ending the Wayne Trace season
with a record of 23-4.
The Raider basketball team
wasn’t the only red, white and
blue group of athletes that
made a long run in the winter
sports season.
The red, white and blue
wrestlers were the GMC run-
ner-ups but also enjoyed indi-
vidual success.
Wayne Trace sophomore
George Clemens and junior
Tyler Showalter each advanced
to the state tournament in their
respective weight classes of 106
and 145.
Clemens fell to Shadyside’s
Greg Quinn 9-6 and Sullivan
Black River’s Sebastian Vidika
10-4 to end his season. The
Raider sophomore posted a win
over Willard’s Kaden Moore
16-0 to finish 47-5 on the sea-
Showalter dropped matches
to Wickliffe’s David Monturi
11-6 and Castalia Margaretta’s
Deven Taylor by pin at the 3:09
mark. Showalter ended his year
with a record of 16-5.
While they didn’t send any-
body to the state meet, Paulding
also had a very successful
wrestling season as the Panthers
captured the Northwest Confer-
ence championship.
County athletes weren’t done
The spring sports season
brought more state participation
for the county with a pair of
track athletes from both
Antwerp and Wayne Trace
making the trip as well as the
Lady Raider softball team.
Williamson took part in his
second state meet, running in
both the Division III 1600 and
3200 meter runs over the week-
The Archers sophomore
picked up a fourth place finish
in the 1600 run, completing the
event with a time of 4:22.27.
Williamson then followed that
by placing tenth in the 3200 run,
posting a time of 10:10.30.
Wayne Trace senior Arlen
Stoller also ran in the 1600 run,
just missing a spot on the
podium by taking ninth place
with a time of 4:26.97.
Antwerp’s girls squad also
had a representative at the state
meet in sophomore Audrie Lon-
gardner. The Lady Archer soph-
omore took 16th in the 400 dash
with a time of 1:01.84.
Raider freshmen Seth Saylor
made the trip to Columbus as
well and came back with an im-
pressive sixth place finish in the
300 hurdles. Standing ninth
after the semifinals on Friday,
Saylor bounced back and ran a
time of 40.11 to move up three
spots in his initial year of high
school track.
The Raider boys squad also
claimed a Green Meadows
Conference championship, slip-
ping past Fairview, 120-117.
In Akron, a group of a dozen
ladies from Wayne Trace took
part in the Division IV state
softball tournament to make
the initial appearance for
Paulding County in the tourna-
While the game didn’t end
the way the Raiders would
have hoped, the red, white and
blue took a good crowd and
represented Paulding County
well but fell 6-1 to eventual
state champion Cuyahoga
The 2013-14 high school
season featured tremendous
success for all three county
schools. Congratulations to all
of the athletes who advanced
not only to their respective
state tournaments, but also to
those who moved on to re-
gional or district tournaments.
Thanks for a great year.
