Timber Road II is Ohios
first industrial scale wind farm
consisting of 55 wind turbines
producing 99 mega watts of
clean renewable energy. In
2013, Timber Road II provid-
ed approximately $1.3 million.
With the passage of Senate
Bill 310 and House Bill 483,
the county could lose $2.6 in
projected new income.
With the freeze and
changes taking place, it basi-
cally takes away from us the
ability to market our product,
said Bowser.
State Representative Tony
Burkley, supporter of the wind

Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING Within the
past few weeks, the future for
wind energy in Paulding
County and neighboring Van
Wert County has most likely
taken on a new look. Two re-
cent changes from Columbus
may reverse the future coun-
tryside scenery for several pro-
posed wind farms in Paulding
County. However,
more important than the
change of scenery will be the
financial impact and potential
loss of income. Wind farm
revenue has been responsible
for benefiting schools as well
as several county and town-
ship entities.
On Friday, June 13, Senate
Bill 310 was signed into law
by Ohio Gov. John Kasich,
putting a two-year hiatus on
renewable-energy standards in
the state. Then Monday, June
16, Kasich put his signature on
House Bill 483 without using
a line item which would have
eliminated stiffer requirements
for setbacks of wind turbines
from property lines.
EDP Renewables, which
operates the Timber Road II
Wind Farm, will be forced to
shelve their next two phases
for clean renewable energy.
We have two projects we
want to build but will need to
shelve for now, said Erin
Bowser, director of Project
Management. Our permits
that a review be made con-
cerning the previous standards
and how they are being met. I
certainly would have preferred
not to go with the two-year
moratorium. This is certainly
not going to benefit Paulding

While no official announce-
ment has been made concern-
ing the future of locally con-
structed wind farms by
Iberdrola Renewables, Project
Developer Dan Litchfield said
on Tuesday, June 17, We are
disappointed with the two re-
cent changes in Ohios energy
policy, both their substance
and the process by which the
setback requirements were
changed. The setback provi-
sion specifically had no oppor-
tunity for public comment or
Iberdrola Renewables has
37 turbines in Paulding
County with a total of 152
within the entire Blue Creek
wind farm project.
This is the fourth attempt
in three years to make changes
and get this particular bill
passed. The setback change
was done a little sneaky. The
budget bill was a 1,200-page
document and the setback pro-
vision was stuck on the last
page. There was no opportuni-
ty for testimony or comment,
said Litchfield.
See WIND FARMS, page 2A
This file photograph shows wind turbines on a local wind farm. Two new pieces of legisla-
tion signed into law this month have made changes to Ohios energy policy. These changes
may affect the construction of future wind farms in the county.
Day on the river
Randy Shaffer/Paulding County Progress
A small but enthusiastic group of paddlers participated in the Auglaize River Regatta near
Oakwood on June 21. Four teams manned canoes and four individuals took to the river in
kayaks. A bluegrass band played in the park. The new event was organized by Oakwood
Development Co. and Oakwood area businesses.

Herbert E. Orr Co. has re-
cently began the process of
expanding its manufacturing
facility significantly. While
the expansion is contingent
on certain funding issues, if
completed it
will be a
major addi-
tion to the
The plan
is to attach a 10,000-square-
foot building to the current
paint line facility on the
south end of the factory. The
company estimates the real-
property addition to cost ap-
proximately $686,000, and
with the purchase of new
equipment, the total cost of
the project would be about
$1 million.
In addition to the building
and equipment, Herbert E.
Orr Co. plans to add four or
five new positions to its ex-
isting labor force. According
to CEO Donna Garman, the
jobs that will be available
depend on where the need
exists after the expansion is
The project depends on
the approval of certain tax
abatements. To help fund the
new project, the company
has applied for a 10-year tax
abatement on 100 percent of
new real estate taxes in-
curred by the expansion.
If the tax abatements are
approved, the company can
finalize design plans and
start applying for permits.
Garman points out that, if
everything goes as planned,
the hope is to start construc-
tion this fall.

which the factory supplies

According to Garman,
the purpose of the expan-

PAULDING Paulding County Hospital
has recently completed its implementation of
a new electronic health record system that
would allow the facility to keep a patients en-
tire record as part of an electronic database.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act of 2009 requires that hospitals and physi-
cians switch over from paper records to elec-
tronic records in order to improve quality,
safety, efficiency, and reduce disparities; en-
gage patients and family; improve care coor-
dination; prevent duplication of services; and
provide global access to medical records
while maintaining privacy and security of pa-
tient health information.
According to Paulding County Hospital
CEO Randy Ruge, the hospital officially went
live with the new system on June 1. This
phase of the implementation was stage two;
with stage one being completed a few years
ago. Previously with stage one, a very limited
amount of data was recorded electronically in-
cluding a small percentage of prescriptions;
patient demographic data for 50 percent of pa-
tients to include preferred language, gender,
race, ethnicity and date of birth; and various
other data. The remainder of the data was col-
lected in a traditional paper chart.
Stage two, which started June 1, requires
that everything regarding a patients care and

For more information con-
tact the Bookmobile directly at
live, physicians, nurses and
other hospital employees are
still in the learning process
and finding out everything
the new system can do. Ruge
explains that this might cause
some delays at first, but once
the initial learning process is
past, patient care will be
much more efficient than it
was previously.
Now that the system is up
and running, Paulding
County Hospital is ensuring
quality checks are in place to
make sure everything is
being recorded as required by
the government.
tem so we are consistently
delivering care in accordance
with national protocols, says
This means that Paulding
County Hospital can put
guidelines into its new elec-
tronic system that suggest to
health care professionals
what kind of care to provide
for a certain diagnosis. Ruge
points out that this means pa-
tients at Paulding County
Hospital will get the same
care they would at a hospital
specializing in that diagnosis.
Months of preplanning
went into the switch to a full
electronic record keeping
system, and now that it is
health history is now record-
ed electronically. This in-
cludes all test results; all or-
ders for tests and medications
must be ordered via the com-
puter; progress notes; histo-
ries and physicals; problem
lists; and treatment plans.
In addition to streamlining
healthcare by allowing pa-
tient records to be more easi-
ly accessed anywhere in the
country, another purpose of
this switch from paper to
electronic records is to ad-
dress a nationwide problem
involving the delivery of
healthcare services.
Ruge explains that hand
written records and verbal in-
formation can be misunder-
stood. This has been a nation-
wide issue in the medical
For example, in the past,
patients could have been
given the wrong medication
because it sounded similar to
another medication and was
heard wrong by a health care
provider; however, with the
new electronic system, that
isnt an issue.
Additionally, there are as-
pects of the new system that
allow for consistency of care
within the hospital and be-
tween hospitals.
We can now pre-build
care templates into the sys-
Ohio law says turbines had
to be 1,250 feet away from the
nearest inhabited residence.
The new revision of House
Bill 483 now states turbines
must be 1,250 from the nearest
property line.
The new setbacks will make
any new wind farm difficult to
design. Of the 150 turbines at
Blue Creek Wind Farm, only
12 would adhere to the new
law. But even with the new
setback distances in force,
Ohio State Senator Cliff Hite
stated that property owners
could still proceed if a waiver
was signed.
If somebody wants to
waive that stipulation, they
may. (You would only lose
that many turbines) only if no-
body waives their rights, Hite
pointed out.
Hite voted in favor of both
Litchfield said, We are cur-
rently assessing our options
for future investment in Ohio,
but theres no question that
more investment in Ohio just
became a much riskier propo-
sition. Weve made no deci-
sions on Ohio. We are dis-
cussing and evaluating our op-
tions. Its frustrating but it ap-
pears that for Ohio everything
looks almost impossible.
A statement directly from
the American Wind Energy
Association was harsher in
tone, quoting AWEA CEO
Tom Kiernan as saying that
Kasich and the legislature are
creating an unfriendly busi-
ness environment in Ohio.
Kiernan went on to say,
Legislators rammed through
restrictive rules without due
process, and millions of dol-
lars already invested based on
the previous set of rules may
now be lost without any public
debate. This will force clean
energy developers and manu-
facturers to move to neighbor-
ing states with similar re-
sources and friendlier business
Sen. Hite, a wind energy-
backer, explained that with
changes in the marketplace,
perhaps having 25 percent of
the states energy coming from
renewable energy by 2025
needed to be reexamined.
It was time to have another
look at exactly what we were
doing with our in-state stan-
dards and making sure that the
average Ohioan is getting the
best bang for their buck, Hite
That was the purpose of
this. Things have changed
since we set up those stan-
dards. We didnt know about
natural gas and the supply that
exists today. That has kind of
changed the game a little bit as
far as what does give the best
bang for your buck. Its a com-
petitive game and a its market
game and we have to look at it
and try to find out what is the
best we can do for Ohioans. So
to have a pause for a couple of
years is not a bad thing.
Hite noted that Blue Creek
will be grandfathered in to the
new rules. Actually, any wind
farm approved by the Ohio
Power Siting Board currently
qualifies to be built. Any
changes to the specifics of the
development cannot be
changed without being
brought under the new meas-
urements for setbacks.
Hite concluded simply, Im
not as optimistic for new proj-
ects as I was a year or two
This is an Ohio job killer,
pure and simple, wrote Mark
Goodwin, president of Apex
Clean Energy. With the set-
back requirement, he wrote,
Apex will have no choice but
to take its investment and its
business elsewhere. Given the
need to find new carbon-free
sources of electricity in Ohio,
we cannot imagine a worse
time to send wind energy com-
panies packing.
Whether Iberdrola comes to
the same conclusion remains
to be seen. In a statement, the
AWEA said, The American
wind industry has generated
major economic benefits for
Ohio, which ranks first in the
nation for the number of wind
energy manufacturing facili-
ties with more than 60 in the
Yet there was no opportu-
nity for the regulators at the
Ohio Power Siting Board, nor
a single wind company operat-
ing or developing in Ohio, to
comment or provide testimony
on this matter during its short
one-week consideration in the
General Assembly
Gov. John Kasich and the
Legislature abandoned $2.5
billion in current wind energy
projects, which now face can-
cellation along with jobs, leas-
es, payments to local govern-
ments, and orders for factories,
over a needlessly restrictive
setback requirement that
Kasich signed into law.

Hello! This is Lovinas
daughter, Verena. Mom has
been extra busy lately, so I
wanted to help her out by
writing the column for her
this week.
Washing dishes, sweeping
and mopping floors, and wa-
tering flowers has filled my
day. With having sisters
Loretta, 13 and Lovina, 10,
home from school, they can
help out a lot around the
house already. I like to send
Lovina after my things when
I feel a little lazy. Smile!!
I enjoy helping mom keep
her gardens and flowers wa-
tered. She depends on me to
keep the flowers watered, so
I try my best to keep them
looking nice. They are nicely
hung on our porch, making it
look beautiful from the view
on the road. I want to help
mom do some weeding in the
garden if we get time tomor-
row. We want to also wash
laundry tomorrow, if it
doesnt rain.
Sister Elizabeth has a York-
shire terrier puppy. Shes only
had it for a week. She is
named Isabella. We call her
Izzy for short. She is such a
little ornery puppy some-
times. She loves to play and
all the attention she gets
around here. Elizabeth also
has a Shih Tzu dog named
Spikey. Her boyfriend Timo-
thy keeps Spikey at his house
because he was way too
lively in our house for Mom.
Mom never allowed us to
have pets in the house, but so

Winning the Battle for a Generation
By Rick Jones
Defiance Area Youth for
Christ executive director
Are you living for tomorrow?
At one time or another we all have probably
used a calendar, a monthly flip calendar, a cal-
endar on a smart phone, a Franklin Planning
Calendar or some similar calendar planning
device. The idea of having a calendar to plan
is to consider mapping the future, planning for
tomorrow, but can our obsession with plan-
ning for the next day be too presumptive? Do
we think more about living for tomorrow
without consideration for living for today? In
other words, Are you living for tomorrow? I
read the following story on living for tomor-
row in
Kefa Sempangi (whose story is told in the
book A Distant Grief), was a national pastor
in Africa and barely escaped with his family
from brutal oppression and terror in his home
country of Uganda. They made their way to
Philadelphia, where a group of Christians
began caring for them. One day his wife said,
Tomorrow I am going to go and buy some
clothes for the children, and immediately she
and her husband broke into tears. Because of
the constant threat of death under which they
had so long lived, that was the first time in
many years they had dared even speak the
word tomorrow.
Their terrifying experiences forced them to
realize what is true of every person: There is
no assurance of tomorrow. The only time we
can be sure of having is what we have at the
moment. To the self-satisfied farmer who had
grandiose plans to build bigger and better
barns to store his crops, the Lord said, You
fool! This very night your soul is required of
you, (Luke 12:20). He had already lived his
last tomorrow.

Theis writes of rejection, suicide, faith
PAULDING Robin Theis
is a veteran on the topic of re-
She spent several years of
her childhood in a childrens
home. She married at a young
age and raised her children to
love life and to appreciate the
simplest of things.
She found that the rejection
she had experienced caused
many problems in her early
years of child rearing and in her
marriage. Losing her son to
suicide set her on a search for
answers, and what she found
was the rejection in his mar-
riage led him to take his life.
Surrendered Identity chal-
lenges readers to look at rejec-
tion through new eyes. The
amount of people who have
been rejected is staggering and
the result is painful.
Rejection leaves damage in-
side a person that manifests in
many ways. These include
anger, rebelliousness, relation-
ship problems, depression,
thoughts of suicide, wondering
if the people in a circle of
friends reject or accept you, re-
jecting people before they re-
ject you, self-pity, the inability
to take constructive criticism or
correction very well, the need
to be loved, blaming God, in-
security, self-rejection, self-
condemning, self-hate, feeling
worthless and even feeling that
there is no hope.
Theis shares her faith-based
journey and provides strategies
on how to be set free from the
bondage of rejection.
Robin Theis will be the guest
at a special meet and greet
from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on the
main floor of the historic
Carnegie library in Paulding on
Thursday, June 26. Visitors will

Lessons from the
public records
audit: 10 years after
By Dennis Hetzel, ONA executive director
Theres good news for Ohio citizens in the results of a
statewide, county-by-county public records audit that was
conducted by more than 60 Ohio media outlets in April
under the auspices of the Ohio Coalition for Open Govern-
But you shouldnt get too excited. Problems with open
records in Ohio are deeper and more complicated than ever.
Let me explain why.
Why were this years results so much better? I suspect the
main reason is greater awareness by government officials
and it also suggests that, stereotypes to the contrary, local
newspapers continue to keep local officials on their toes.
The training of local officials on the importance and require-
ments of Ohios records laws is far broader and more consis-
tent than it was in 2004, the last time such an audit was
However, keep the results in perspective. This is all the
audit showed: When you request a record from local govern-
ment, and theres no doubt its a public record, the chances of
obtaining the record in the correct manner are quite good.
Emphasize that phrase no doubt. Attorneys who are experts
on Ohio laws checked our requests in advance. Records such as
meeting minutes, salary information and expense reports, are
unquestionably public records.
The problem is this: A string of court decisions and legislative
changes over the past 10 years have closed more records than
ever and shifted the burden of proof strongly against citizens
when there is any ambiguity.
In other words, when a government official wants to say
no, unless it is 99 percent clear that the record is open, it is
getting harder and harder to win. Even if you do, the Ohio
Supreme Court has taken what legislators made difficult and
now made it nearly impossible to collect attorney fees. This
means only the wealthiest can afford to pursue these cases, giv-
ing government a tremendous tactical advantage. Unlike most
states, there is no way to fight a state agency and the majority of
local governmental denials in Ohio without hiring a lawyer and
going to the time and expense of litigation.
Consider the 2012 case, Zidonis v. Columbus State, a wrong-
ful discharge action. The Supreme Court gave governmental
agencies new latitude to claim records requests are overly
broad. Today the standard appears to be that overly broad is
whatever government says it is.
While we were told that the Zidonis case involved narrow
facts and wouldnt apply to many situations, it is popping up in
cases as arguments in favor of keeping records secret. That was
the same argument made in another noteworthy case in which
the Cincinnati school board did an end-run around the open
records law by using a post office box and a search firm to hide
the names of school superintendent applicants. And, guess
what? Lawyers for Kent State University cited the Cincinnati
case to keep names of candidates secret in KSUs recent presi-
dential search.
Meanwhile, exceptions are ever-growing. Ten years ago, there
were far fewer in the law. Theyve now run out of single letters
to attach exceptions to Ohio Revised Code 149.43 the open
records law. Were at exception bb now. Hundreds of other
exceptions are peppered in the statutes. One of the most abused
exceptions is the trade secrets exemption. Meanwhile, legis-
lators and courts have made it harder to get information about
tax-dependent organizations such as JobsOhio, charter schools
and privatized prisons.
Then there is Ohios actual definition of public records. Be-
fore a court will even consider if something is open, it must fit
the definition of an actual government record. It cant be an
open record if it isnt a public record. We need a broader defini-
tion that the courts will support.
Finally, consider the sheer volume of content that government
is creating, just like the rest of us. It takes time and expense to
review hundreds of documents. I agree with government groups
that this is a genuine issue. Were not unsympathetic, but maybe
if we had fewer exceptions and ambiguities, those searches
would go a lot faster.
So, lets be grateful for the progress that the audit showed
but keep our focus on fixing the big problems that remain so
Ohio citizens have the access to information they deserve.

Guest Column
Do something
By Kirk Dougal
This week we stumbled across the fun sort of item we love
to find from time to time. It was a copy of Isaac Asimovs
guest column for the New York Times following his visit to
the 1964 Worlds Fair in New York City.
Asimov - a professor of biochemistry at Boston University,
noted futurist, and author of such science fiction classics as
the Foundation and Robot series - was fascinated by what he
saw at the event. At the height of the Cold War, the theme
expressed hope with Peace Through Understanding, a line
of thinking that also ran through most of his writings.
However, what caught our eye is that Asimov offered sev-
eral of his own visions of what someone in 2014, 50 years
after the New York Worlds Fair, would find at a current ex-
Here is a partial list of what Asimov thought we would see
in 2014:
House windows would be self-dimming. This technology
is available today in not only building windows but also in
aircraft glass, boats, automobiles, and even in eye glasses
An underground house at the Fair in 1964 made Asimov
theorize entire neighborhoods, especially in suburbia, would
be underground for easily controlled temperatures and en-
ergy savings. The surface would be used for agricultural
means so food could be grown closer to urban markets (No).
Gadgets would be everywhere in 2014, saving people the
time of performing all sorts of mundane tasks. Coffee pots
would turn on with a timer and have a hot cup of joe ready in
the morning (Yes). Auto meals would do much the same
thing. A person could order their breakfast to be ready at a
certain time and it would heat itself (No). Complete meals
would be frozen and ready to be warmed in just a few min-
utes (Yes).
He predicted 3-D movies would be very popular (Yes).
Oddly, for a man who wrote about harmony between
mankind and robots in the future, Asimov predicted robots
would not be common or very good in 2014. He said at
best there might be an exhibit of a slow and clumsy robot
maid and perhaps a robot landscaper but the machines would
still not be fully functional yet (Yes).
Appliances would not have electric cords but instead be
powered by batteries (Yes). Unfortunately, he said the power
in those batteries would come from radioisotopes, a byprod-
uct of all the fission power plants supplying more than half
of the U.S. energy demand (No).
Asimov said the world would have become much smaller
by 2014. Not in size, but in the amount of time it took to
travel from place to place as faster planes (Yes) and a much
more thorough road infrastructure (Yes) made it easier to get
from Point A to Point B. However, just as every other futurist
predicted, he believed flying cars would be available by now
as well (No). However, what made those flying cars possible
would be computer navigation that would leave the humans
inside as just riders and not drivers. Google is experimenting
with this technology and Nevada, Florida, and California
have passed laws making it legal for driverless cars to oper-
ate on the roadways. (A marginal Yes).
Communications will entail both sight and sound (Yes),
enable the studying of documents and books (Yes), and uti-
lize geosynchronous satellites to make it possible to dial di-
rectly to any place on earth (Yes). The transmission of
communications and data would be possible on modulated
laser beams through plastic pipes (Yes).
We would have permanent colonies on the moon (sadly,
No, as we have not landed humans on the moon since 1972).
Unfortunately, Asimov predicted not everything in 2014
would be rosy. He also predicted:
Massive overpopulation as the world would now have
6.5 billion people (actually 7.2 billion, No) and the U.S. 350
million (actually 318 million, No). He saw the Boston to
Washington D.C. corridor as one massive city with 40 mil-
lion residents (No). He predicted the overcrowding would
make humans begin colonizing undersea cities (No). He be-
lieved most developed countries would have adopted legisla-
tion to regulate the number of children by now to reduce
population (No).
Food shortages and starvation would be rampant until
scientists invented microorganism farms. A dinner out would
most likely include a mock-turkey sandwich or a pseudo-
steak (No).
Asimov saw America remaining on the cutting edge of
technology but the gap between the haves and have-nots
would widen with third world countries falling even further
behind in machinery, medicines, etc. (Yes)
Students would be taught the fundamentals of computers
as a routine part of classroom studies. Those students who do
not keep up with those studies or lived in areas where com-
puter studies were not taught would be reduced to low-level,
menial jobs in the workplace - if they could find work at all
(a qualified Yes).
Perhaps most frightening, because of all the automation
that would be in place by 2014, Asimov foresaw mental dis-
ease spreading quickly through large parts of the population.
Without healthy, fulfilling work, these segments would suffer
through grave emotional and sociological consequences that
could lead to introverted and narcissistic tendencies, forcing
the need to be treated by the fastest growing medical profes-
sion: psychiatry. (Yes)
So why was this the time we found Asimovs predictions
so compelling? Because as we think of all the high school
and college graduates stepping out into the real world for the
first time, we know they will be receiving an overabundance
of advice about their futures. Here is our contribution:
Do something.
Do something that in 50 years, when your work life is
completed, you will be able to look back upon and say, I did
Do something that your friends and neighbors will remem-
ber. Do something so people who never met you will be able
to reap benefits.
That something may be as important as finding a cure for
cancer or inventing the Internet. That something may be cre-
ating a piece of art or writing a book. That something may be
only important to your family and friends.
Fifty years ago, the Worlds Fair in New York envisioned a
pathway to the future. Scientists and inventors saw that path-
way as a set of goals. Some of what Asimov predicted has
come true and some is still just science fiction. But the im-
portant thing is people pushed the limits of what already was
and strove for what could be.
The first step of that process is to decided you are going to
do something.

in Van Wert County. The History Channels hit
television series American Pickers will be
in this area July 14-27 and is now actively
seeking locations to feature in Van Wert
The documentary-style show follows pro-
fessional pickers Mike Wolfe and Frank
Fritz on adventures that bring them to small
towns across the country in search of unique
Americana and fascinating people.
Were looking for people with barns, ware-
houses and out buildings full of odd, unique,
and interesting collections, said Anthony Ro-
driguez, casting associate producer with Cine-
flix USA. We also love to explore the history
of the locations tied to the items. Mike and
Frank are always looking for great characters
too the kinds of people within the nooks,
crannies and back roads of this big country.
Our favorite picks feature multiple buildings
crammed with lots of cool stuff. We love for
our guys to really work for what they find,
digging through piles and coming up with
Mike and Frank area longtime pickers or
as they call themselves modern archaeolo-
gists. They drive the back roads of America
knocking on doors, digging through barns and
basements, and sifting through junkyards and
warehouses. The dirty, rusty treasures and an-
tiques they pull out of these places are not just
given a new life; theyre saved for future gen-
erations to appreciate. Along the way the guys
meet the amazing people and interesting
places that make America great.
How exciting for the Van Wert commu-
nity! Many of our county residents have treas-
ure troves waiting to be discovered by Mike
and Frank, commented Van Wert Chamber
president/CEO Susan Munroe. The stories
and journeys attached to those treasures as
shared by their owners is often whats the best
part of the show.
American Pickers is not currently looking
for: farming / agriculture items, tools, glass-
ware, appliances, tractors, crocks, stoves,
country primitives. The American Pickers do
not go to shops, antique malls, auctions or flea
markets. The shows producers will scout the
Van Wert area to find the best locations and
casting opportunities before filming begins.
Anyone with items listed below that might
be interested in being featured on the show
should email your name, phone number, ad-
dress and a brief description of the items,
along with pictures to chamber@van- no later than Friday, June
27. For additional information about the show

I have always been a foodie.
I like to eat, read recipes, try
different ingredients and love
to cook. Cooking methods that
I use today are somewhat dif-
ferent than what my mama and
grandma used. Grandma
would tend to fry up good old
greasy ham, fried potatoes,
bacon and pork chops. One
special dish she cooked was
red kidney beans and cream
style corn mixed together. She
called it
kali-kamash. To some foodies
this combination may sound
strange, but actually it is quite
delicious. I know also that
when she made a salad, it was
usually head lettuce chopped
up with a homemade mayon-
naise dressing on it. I grew up
believing that was the only
kind of salad dressing that ex-
It was after I was grown that
I began to experiment in the
kitchen. Of course, one new
food item in the 60s was pizza.
Remember the boxed pizza
you made yourself called Chef-
Boy-Ar-Dee? I havent made
one of those in years, but they
still have them on the shelves.
One pizza I now enjoy making
is a bacon and mashed potato
pizza. This may sound strange,
but it is really good. Would you
try it?
I also like food such as lob-
ster, crab legs, shrimp cock-
tails, all types of fish and
seafood. I love Italian and Chi-
nese food and experimenting
with different stir-frys and
One thing I have never really
had the desire to cook or eat is
wild game. Not too long ago, a
friend of mine hit a raccoon
with his car. He stopped his car
and got out and another vehicle
pulled up behind him. The oc-
cupant in the other car said,
What are you going to do with
that coon?
My friend replied, I dont
know, but want to get it off the

my! Can we have it?
Of course, said my friend.

Signs of Asian longhorned beetles
By Mark Holtsberry
Education specialist
Paulding SWCD
Trees in Ohio are under attack by foreign in-
vaders. The Asian longhorned beetle was ac-
cidentally introduced to the United States
from Asia in 1996 and has been wreaking
havoc on trees in Massachusetts, New York,
New Jersey, Illinois and now Ohio. The Asian
longhorned beetle was found in Clermont
County in June 2011. The beetle threatens
Ohios $2.5 billion in standing maple timber
and the $5 billion nursery industry, which em-
ploys 240,000.
In an effort to prevent the spread of this in-
sect, numerous restrictions regarding the
transportation of branches, roots and stumps
have been implemented. These efforts have
successfully led to the eradication of the beetle
in Illinois and New Jersey. Citizens can assist
in these efforts by checking trees for the
spread of the Asian longhorned beetle by look-
ing for the telltale signs of infestation.
The pest loves to munch on maple, ash,
birch and elm trees. It bores into the tissue that
conducts water and nutrients to the tree, caus-
ing it to starve.
Mature beetles emerge from trees in late
May through October and will leave behind
dime-size (a quarter of an inch or larger), per-
fectly round exit holes. There will also be shal-
low scars in bark where the eggs are laid.
Sawdust-like materials called frass, can be
seen on the ground and the branches. The
branches themselves may be dead or dying.
The final sign is spotting the beetle itself.

FSA: Possible compensation to
farmers who suffer disaster loss
Progress Feature Writer
Farmers who experienced
livestock forage loss, espe-
cially in the drought summer of
2012 or who experienced live-
stock loss, especially in this
past hard winter, could be eli-
gible for assistance through the
Livestock Forage Disaster Pro-
gram, says Paulding County
Farm Service Agent (FSA)
Philip Lautenschlager.
According to Lauten-
schlager, the 2014 Farm Bill
makes the Livestock Forage
Disaster Program a permanent
program and provides author-
ity retroactive to Oct. 1, 2011
to cover eligible losses. The
program provides compensa-
tion to eligible livestock pro-
ducers who suffered grazing
losses on or after Oct. 1, 2011
due to drought or fire.
Eligibility of a county af-
fected by drought is deter-
mined by the U.S. Drought
Monitor severity index and the
duration of the designations
during the normal grazing pe-
Paulding County met the
lowermost eligibility tier, being
assigned a D2 (severe drought)
index for eight consecutive
weeks between June 19, 2012
and Aug. 13, 2012, said Laut-
enschlager. Those signing up
for grazing losses that occurred
between Oct. 1, 2011 and Dec.
31, 2014, have until Jan. 30,
2015 to sign up for the pro-
The new farm bill also
makes the Livestock Indemnity
Program a permanent program
and provides retroactive au-
thority to Oct. 1, 2011 to cover
eligible losses, said the agent.
This legislation provides
compensation to eligible live-
stock producers who have suf-
fered livestock death losses in
excess of normal mortality due
to adverse weather and attacks
by animals reintroduced into
the wild by the federal govern-
ment, Lautenschlager said.
The final date to submit a
notice of loss and application
for payment for livestock that
died between Oct. 1, 2011 and
Dec. 31, 2014 is Jan. 30, 2015.
Lautenschlager said that
there is particular interest in
Paulding County for available
assistance for those who have
lost honeybees due to disease,
adverse weather, or other ex-
treme conditions such as bliz-
zards or wildfires. He noted
that assistance is available in
defined circumstances for
those not covered by the forage
disaster plan or livestock in-
demnity plan. However, appli-
cation for assistance must be
filed by Nov. 14, 2014.
Also of benefit to Paulding
County farmers could be pro-
viding financial assistance to
qualifying orchardists and
nursery tree growers to replant
or rehabilitate eligible trees,
bushes and vines damaged by
natural disasters.
Of immediate concern, said
Lautenschlager, is for farmers
to submit production reports
for ACRE participants by July
15 of this year.
Of immediate interest is the
importance for ACRE partici-
pants to submit records of their
2013 production by no later
than this July 15.
Also, Lautenschlager noted
that the Paulding County FSA
office has been assigned a new
FAX number. Those submit-
ting documents by FAX are
asked to use the number, 855-
841-6796 when doing so.
Paulding County Farm Service Agent (FSA) Philip Lautenschlager
explains several programs to help compensate county farmers who
have encountered a variety of disasters in recent years.
Richard Lauffer, facilitator from Ohio Emergency Management, instructs many of the partici-
pants who were actively involved in the Local Emergency Planning Commission exercise. The
mock tornado disaster took place on Saturday at Latty.
Large turnout for LEPC
safety training exercise
Feature Writer
LATTY In excess of 86
people turned out last Satur-
day for a full scale Local
Emergency Planning Com-
mission (LEPC) exercise.
Following a briefing at the
operations Emergency Oper-
ations Center (EOC), the exer-
cise split up into different
phases including the Mercer
Landmark (Latty facility),
Nazarene Church (blood draws)
and Paulding County Hospital
(to receive the injured).
The planned exercise began
when a (fictitious) call was
made from Mercer Landmark
that a strong tornado had hit the
facility and a number of anhy-
drous ammonia nurse tanks had
been ruptured. As a result, it ap-
peared that there was a valve
leakage on a 30,000 gallon stor-
age tank and numerous anhy-
drous ammonia cars had rolled
over. There were also a couple
of farmers hauling chemicals at
the site when the tornado hit and
there were a number of employ-
ees injured.
The 911 dispatch was respon-
sible for paging Scott Fire De-
partment which had jurisdiction
of the area. Mutual aid was re-
quested from Payne and Grover
Hill fire departments. The
Emergency Management
Agency (EMA) was already ac-
tive in the situation because it
was tracking the storms as they
moved through the county.
Following the passage of the
tornado and front, winds had
switched to the east, gusting to
25 miles per hour, which carried
the vapor plume over the village
of Latty.
At that point of the exercise,
the Incident Command System
(ICS) was responsible to deter-
mine how personnel could
safely approach the scene and
remove the victims for transport
to the hospital. Also, the ICS
was to determine whether occu-
pants of the homes in the area
should shelter in place or evac-
Instructions for the exercise
required that the EOC would
give support on weather deci-
sions, evacuation decisions and
input on the product involved.
Any victims were transferred to
Paulding County Hospital with
the emergency room testing
their hazmat protocol and treat-
ment of inhalation/burns vic-
Julie Rittenhouse, EMA di-
rector for Defiance County,
noted there were several objec-
tives that were outlined for the
exercise. Those included the ini-
tial notification of response
agencies, incident command,
emergency operations center,
population protection actions,
traffic and access control, shel-
ter management, EMS and hos-
pital services.
We manage the resources
here (EOC) and the event is
simulated in Latty, said Ritten-
house on Saturday.
The EOC was located in a
conference room of the Pauld-
ing County Sheriff Department,
which was actively involved in
the exercise.
Paulding County Sheriff
Jason Landers said that while
there are always areas to im-
prove, he was very pleased with
the turnout and diligence of
those who signed up to be in-
volved in the training.
The interest and work in-
volved in this was outstanding,
said Landers. This was a big
step in training our county peo-
ple for such an incident. Im
sure we learned a lot in these
few hours.
This is a full scale emer-
gency operation exercise, said
Richard Lauffer, facilitator for
the Ohio Emergency Manage-
ment. This is large enough that
we felt the need to open an EOC
to coordinate this event from the
Paulding County Sheriffs Of-
The general assessment of
the exercise is that it was
done to learn mistakes that
were made so we will per-
form better when an actual in-
cident occurs, said Paulding
County Commissioner Roy
Klopfenstein. Communica-
tion is always a challenge when
we have multiple sites and a lot
of things that we need.
Richard Lauffer took all of the
evaluation sheets with him, said
Klopfenstein, to compose and
mail back to county officials.
Those involved in planning
the exercise were Bob Herber,
Cecil Fire Department; Bill Ed-
wards, health department and
chairman of the LEPC; Sheriff
Landers; Jamie Mansfield,
Payne Fire Chief; Ben Snyder,
Mercer Landmark safety chair-
man; Rittenhouse, Defiance
County EMA; and Commis-
sioner Klopfenstein.

My new friend in wings
Its been nearly two weeks
ago now that I became aware
of a brand new friend. He
may have actually been there
sooner, but he caught my eye
the day he greeted me with a
song and dance that was
graceful and beautiful as any
Ive ever seen in nature.
Ronnie Redwing, who
poses as a red-winged
blackbird, has quickly be-
come the gatekeeper to the fa-
mous trail that I enjoy so
much when I walk in the
Limberlost Loblolly. Its a re-
stored wetland just south of
Geneva, Ind., developed in
honor of famed naturalist
writer, Gene Stratton-Porter.
It is no secret to those who
know me that the Lob, as
we call it around the area, has
become my refuge, my re-
storer of every kind of health
and my prayer garden of
quietness, usually several
times a week.
It took two or three visits
with Ronnie perching on a
small dead bush at the open-
ing of my trail before I re-
alized that he was introducing
himself for friendship. Once I
realized, I called him out, Hi
Ronnie, and he responded
with jumping up and down,
flapping his wings and actu-
ally singing his own tune to
Day after day, I would
come to the Lob. Some days
as I approached and parked in
the parking lot right across
from the trailhead, the tree
would be empty but as I
drove into the parking lot,
suddenly, he appeared and
was chirping and waiting for
me at the trailhead.
One day about a week ago,
I took Joyce with me. I had
told her about Ronnie, on
faith, that the journey would
continue. Sure enough, as we
approached, Ron had already
perched himself in the tree
and was waiting for us. She
sat in the parking lot and read
a book while I did the trail.
But its not just about arriv-
ing, he is also waiting for me
when I return.
Joyce was astounded.
When I came to the car, with
Ronnie chirping in the back-
ground, she said, Jim, he
watched you for a long ways
on the trail. Finally he flew
off and flew around. But
when he saw you return, he
came flying out of the woods
and made sure that he was
waiting for you on the bush
when you returned.
As we left, I smiled. Joyce
rolled down the window of
the car and said, Bye, Ron-
nie, indicating that he had
won her heart.
One day late last week,
storms were approaching the
Lob while I was on the trail. I
kept my eye on the dark
clouds rolling in and geared
my walk according. As I
reached the end of the trail,
the wind was kicking up and
I could see sheets of rain in
the distance.
I said, Ronnie, you had
better take shelter, theres a
storm coming.
Ironically, he stayed in the
bush and watched until I got
into the car. As the rain
started to pelt the car, I
looked back and he was gone.
The next day, I saw him
hurrying toward the tree as
my car approached. And there
he was; my tender heart nearly
melted as I realized that he had
been taken care of during the
vicious storm. As I approached,
he flapped his wings and
I said, Ronnie, youre safe,
God took care of you, and he
just chirped and turned his
head and looked at me. Then,
in a moment of a total spiritual
epiphany, I sang an old hymn
to him about God hiding us in
His shelter during the storm.
Goose bumps overtook me and
tears literally fell down my
cheeks as he sang his own song
while I was singing with him.
Last Friday was the 16th day
in a row that Ronnie appeared
on site. I was driving into the
parking lot and the bush was
empty. Suddenly, a little
shadow dove over the car and
on the bush at the head of my
When I returned, a man was
sitting in a van in the parking
lot taking in the sounds and
solitude of the Lob. Sure
enough, Ron came flying to his
perch and started chirping,
flapping his wings and talk-
ing to me.
That bird acts like he
knows you, said the gentle-
man. I smiled and said, Oh he
does, thats my friend, Ron-
nie, as I got into the car and
said, Bye, Ronnie, and drove

Commissioners Journal June 11, 2014
This 11th day of June, 2014, the Board of County Com-
missioners met in regular session with the following
members present: Tony Zartman, Roy Klopfenstein, Fred
Pieper, and Nola Ginter, Clerk.
Joe Burkard, Claudia Fickel, Lou Ann Wannemacher,
Travis McGarvey, Cindy Peters Burkard reviewed the
recent revisions/modifications in the county employee
manual. The county commissioners adopted
CCAO/CORSAs manual by resolution on Dec. 20, 2012,
effective Jan. 1, 2013. The revisions made related to cal-
culating vacation benefits for full-time employees, specif-
ically those who have had previous full-time (with benefits)
employment with a political subdivision.
Fickel emphasized the importance of year-end employee
attendance reports. Because each office has the authority to
determine its own full-time hour requirements, it was sug-
gested that each office indicate the number of hours that of-
fice considers full-time on the attendance reports. By so
documenting, it will make calculating and accruing the em-
ployees vacation time easier and more accurate.
Vacation time must still be accrued the first year of full-
time employment (regardless of prior work experience) be-
fore the employee has paid time off. It was also noted that
accumulated sick leave is only paid out upon an employees
Sheriff Jason Landers presented the sheriffs status/pro-
jection reports for the commissioners review. He noted the
inmate transport vehicle has been ordered. Sheriff Landers
also reported one of his deputies will be able to equip the
new EMA vehicle with the proper lights, radio, etc. He then
reminded the commissioners his office will begin union ne-
gotiations in October.
Jerry Zielke, Paulding County Economic Development,
was excited to announce the future expansion at the Herbert
E. Orr Company Inc. in Paulding. He. reported they plan to
file an EZ (enterprise zone) agreement and will apply for tax
Herbert E. Orr Company plans to construct a 10,000-
square-foot building at an estimated cost of $680,000. The
expansion projects total cost is estimated to be $1 million
(building and additional equipment).
Zielke noted they will be working with the economic de-
velopment regional office for possible funding options.
Through the expansion, the company hopes to create five
new positions. Herbert E. Orr Company Inc. manufactures
auto parts for a variety of models.
Zielke further noted he is hopeful the recent improve-
ments to the Cecil sewer system will make the US 127/US
24 interchange more marketable for new business activity.
Niki Warncke, Maumee Valley Planning Organization
(MVPO); Janet Stroup, Mayor of Melrose; Ron Hunter,
Mayor of Broughton Warncke chaired the Second Public
Hearing for the FY 2014 CDBG Community Development
Program. She presented those present with a report that in-
cluded the seven projects as applied for by various entities.
Paulding County was allocated $75,000 for the FY 2014
CDBG Community Development Allocation Program.
MVPO retains $15,000 for administration and fair housing.
The remaining $60,000 may be awarded to up to three proj-
ects from the applications submitted.
After review of the submitted projects, the commissioners
elected to award to the Villages of Melrose and Broughton
and to Auglaize Township all three entities requesting new
tornado sirens. Warncke will work closely with the villages
and township during the bid process. The FY 2014 awarded
grant projects have a Dec. 31, 2015 completion date.
Warncke then focused on the FY 2014 CDBG Commu-
nity Development Competitive Critical Infrastructure Pro-
gram. This grant is based on citizen input and assessment of
need by local officials. Paulding County may apply for up to
$300,000. She reported the Village of Antwerp has submitted
a request for $145,000 for improvements to their village
water facility. MVPO will include their administrative allot-
ment and request a total of $165,000. Warncke emphasized
the Critical Infrastructure Program grant is competitive on a
statewide basis.

surances wellness services available. She also supplied sev-
eral reports generated from the medical information

Josiah for
PHS grad faces long road to recovery
Bob Brown of Oakwood
shared with us the following
story about their son, Derric
Brown, a Paulding High
School graduate, who is cur-
rently recovering from a
On April 12, we got the
devastating news our son,
Derric, was being taken to
Riverside Hospital via an
EMS. He had suffered a
stroke at his sons baseball
game. On Sunday, he was
very talkative, but it was evi-
dent he had aphasia. On Mon-
day, his church family called
together a prayer service to be
held at 7:30 that night; later,
the priest told me had never
seen this done and for 75 peo-
ple to show up was amazing.
What was truly amazing,
divine intervention I would
say, is that late Monday after-
noon Derric went into a coma
and his brain began to swell.
So at the time his church fam-
ily was praying, he was being
wheeled into surgery for an
emergency craniotomy. We
were told without the surgery
he had maybe six hours to
live. The next few days are a
blur that I dont want to re-
member. We spent 10 days at
Riverside with NO idea what
the future held.
On April 21, he was moved
to the Ohio Rehab facility,
where for the first time, we
were given hope. Derric does
have aphasia, meaning the
words do not come, and he is
right side weak. He virtually
has no use of his right arm,
but is able to walk a short dis-
tance with a quad cane. We
are cautiously optimistic that
he regain use of his right side
and his speech will return. We
are blessed that he under-
stands us and has not lost his
incredible sense of humor.
During our weeks at rehab,
when he was napping, I
would try to catch up on read-
ing the newspapers. Several
times I noticed him looking at
the paper and I would ask if
he wanted to see it, and he
would say no. Then it dawned
on me he was looking for
the Progress! So I asked him,
and yes, that is what he
wanted. I always saved them
and he would read them when
he came home.
So he was looking at the
Progress when Darsi Face-
Timed him and she jokingly
said we should send his pic-
ture in reading it.
There is a carepage online
for Derric that at last count
had 784 signed up and many
of them are from Paulding
County, if not now, but origi-
nally. So I thought I would
send you this short synopsis
and perhaps you would want
to print it.
We brought Derric back to
his home in Marysville on
May 31, finding his street
lined with over 100 people.
The Marysville Journal Trib-
une did an article on him.
Derric was within weeks of
buying the funeral home that
he has worked at for 18 years,
so he has touched many peo-
ple in that capacity, as well as
being very involved with Ki-
wanis, Knights of Columbus,
Hospice, and other organiza-
tions as well as sports. But he
has lots of friends and family
here, too.
The Marysville Kiwanis
had a benefit for him Satur-
day, June 14. They stood,
along with Noahs baseball
team and friends, for six
hours at the main street inter-
sections in Marysville and
collected money. We are so
humbled by the outpouring of
love and support and will for-
ever be paying it forward. He
saw the surgeon last Friday,
who was amazed at how far
he has come. Derric is sched-
uled for surgery Wednesday,
June 25, to replace the piece
of skull removed.
We have been amazed at
the generosity shown him. In
reality, the future is very
scary now since he was the
principle bread winner. We
just take it one day at a time
and pray God has another
great plan for Derric.
Cards and well wishes may
be sent to Derric Brown at
1170 Bay Laurel, Marysville
OH 43040. A bank account
has been set up at Fifth Third
Bank in Derrics where dona-
tions can be directed.
Progress went to the Ohio Health Rehab in Columbus with Derric Brown and he would like to
thank everyone in his hometown for their continued prayers as he recovers from a massive stroke.
Derric Browns homecoming
By Corinne Bix
Special to the Progress
would say any sporting event is
a metaphor for life. You win
some, you lose some and you
learn to rely on your teammates
because as the old adage goes,
there is no I in team.
Growing up my father
would talk about the Church
of Baseball, a reference from
the 1988 movie Bull
Durham. Annie Savoy
(played by Susan Sarandon)
said she had tried all the major
religions, worshipped Bud-
dha, Allah, Brahman, Vishnu,
Siva, trees, mushrooms, and
Isadora Duncan. However, it
is baseball that truly feeds the
soul, day in and day out.
While Church is a lofty term
for anything other than a true
House of God, perhaps Annie
was on to something. If we
look at life as our Church, and
find God anywhere and any-
time, we wont be limited to
communing with God just on
I find it interesting that I con-
nect Derric Brown and his
family with the game of base-
ball as it has been through
baseball that I have learned so
much about Derric, his family,
and their journey back from a
life altering event.
About a year ago I had the
opportunity to chat with Derric
Brown as we watched our
daughters play softball. Derric
is a funeral director at Manna-
smith Funeral Home and while
I have known Derric, Dee and
their two children, Noah and
Leah since 2007, I had always
been curious about why any-
one would choose mortuary
science as their career path.
Derric said it was simple... I
was led. Led to do something
that makes so many others
cringe, led to do something that
is a part of life that cant be
skipped. People dont ask ob-
stetricians why they like deliv-
ering babies, but the idea of
willingly consoling grief-
stricken families who have lost
loved ones, not to mention
preparing corpses for viewings
and burial. Well, that is some-
thing most people would do
anything to avoid.
At another ball game, this
time for Noah and my son, I
noticed a man and boy walk by.
After the man passed Derric,
he promptly turned to the boy
and said, That guy there (ges-
turing towards Derric)hes a
good guy. I inferred that Der-
ric had no doubt consoled this
anonymous man at a time of
grief, and Derrics kindness
would never be forgotten.
On Saturday, May 31 at 1:45
p.m., Derric Brown came
home to Bay Laurel Drive in
Marysville filled with family
and friends celebrating his
homecoming. On April 12,
seven weeks prior, Derric suf-
fered a massive stroke at his
sons 12U Mitts baseball game.
His son, Noah, had just hit a
game-saving triple allowing
play to continue as the team
was in danger of being run-
ruled. Had Noah not hit that
double, Derric would have
been driving home alone at the
time of his stroke. His wife
credits Noah, and in part the
game of baseball, for saving
her husbands life.
Derric Brown loves his wife,
loves his children, family and
friends. That was evidenced the
last weekend of May as Derric
made his way down the side-
walk greeting, hugging, and
kissing so many who have fol-
lowed his amazing journey,
prayed and cheered on his suc-
Annie Savoy would tell you
sometimes you make a bad
trade but bad trades are a part
of baseball. The stroke on
April 12 was a bad trade, but
Derric is strong and I believe his
wife may be even stronger and
this bad trade is but a detour
that has already brought about
great things.
Derric was led to his career,
led to his family and now led to
inspire and motivate so many as
he has come back so valiantly
from a life-changing event.
Its a long season and you
gotta trust it. Ive tried em all.
I really have, and the only
church that truly feeds the soul,
day in, day out, is the church of

ACME Baseball
Pauldings Gonzales no-hits Lancers
By Nick Johnson
DHI Media Correspondent
PAULDING Rising senior Treston Gonzales
was on his game early as Pauldings ACME squad
hosted Lincolnview last Thursday night. Gonzales
overpowered the Lancers, striking out the side in
order in the opening inning, and held Lincolnview
without a hit as the Panthers claimed a 3-0 win.
Gonzales fanned 13 in the no-hitter. He walked
Treston has been a workhorse since he was a
freshman, said Panther coach Matt Arellano. He
has a great fastball and has good command most
days. He works really hard on the mound. Keep-
ing him focused sometimes is hard, but he is a
very good pitcher and he is very talented pitcher.
Gonzales talent was on display throughout the
evening. He recorded at least two punch outs in
each of the games first four innings, reaching
double digits before the fifth.
Lincolnview southpaw Jalen Roberts was able
to match Gonzales through the front four frames,
but the Panthers finally broke through with a two
out single in the bottom half of the fifth for the
games first hit.
Im proud of Jalens performance, said
Lancer coach Dana Roberts. We have not seen
the field in a week and weather didnt help us out
(Wednesday). Im tipping my hat to Paulding and
(its) pitcher, tonight. We just couldnt get the
timely hits when we needed to.
Paulding took advantage of some spotty Lin-
colnview defense, staking its pitcher to an early
2-run advantage in the home half of the first. Gon-
zales and Alex Arellano each scored a run thanks
to Lincolnview errors.
The Panthers tacked on a run in the sixth, ex-
tending to a 3-0 lead. Once again, sloppy defense
aided in the rally. Arellano reached base via a
Lancer miscue and Jarrett Sitton cashed hm in
with a run scoring double to deep center field.
Roberts held the Panthers to one run in the inning,
getting a comebacker and a strikeout to escape
further damage.
Errors really cost us, conceded the elder
Roberts after the game.
With the no-hitter intact, Gonzales faced Tyler
Richey to begin the seventh. Richey scorched a
liner back to the mound that Gonzales gloved for
the first out. He struck out the next two batters,
but needed to get one extra hitter thanks to a wild
pitch on the third strike to Nick Motycka, who
beat a throw to first, extending the game. Motycka
eventually wound up at third, but was stranded
there as Gonzales induced a ground out to com-
plete the gem.
Paulding moves to 8-4 on the ACME season
while Lincolnview falls even at 2-2 this summer.
Paulding Jr. ACME
lose two in tournament

The Paulding junior varsity ACME baseball team participated
in the opening sectional round of the state tournament this week-
end. The double elimination tourney had the Panthers traveling to
Hicksville where the host Aces defeated Paulding 10-3 in game.
In the second match up the Aces managed three runs in the bottom
of the fourth to outlast the Panthers 3-2.
Both Hicksville and Paulding each had only one win entering
tournament action with the Aces at 1-7 and Paulding 1-5.
Game 1:
Hicksville 5 Paulding 3
In the first game Hicksville picked up a quick run in the opening
frame to take a 1-0 lead. Paulding answered with three runs of
their own in the top half of the second to take a 3-1 lead. Unfor-
tunately for the Panthers, the home team Aces tacked on four runs
in their half of the second to hold a 5-3 advantage. Hicksville went
on to add a run in the fourth and fifth innings and three more in
the sixth.
The winning pitcher for the Aces was Blake Stairhime. He went
the distance, allowing just four hits while striking out five.
Alex Estrada was on the mound through five innings for Pauld-
ing and gave up eight runs while allowing eight walks and three
hits. Estrada totaled nine strike outs in the loss. Blake Dobbelaere
pitched one inning in relief and allowed two runs on two hits while
walking two.
At the plate, Ryan Nicelley led the Panthers with a single and
double with teammate Adrian Daniel adding an RBI single. The
other Panther hit was delivered by Blake Dobbelaere.
Leading hitters for Hicksville included Brady Hootman with
two singles and Dante Klender also with a couple of singles. Each
player also contributed an RBI.
Game 2:
Hicksville 3 Paulding 2
After three scoreless innings, the Paulding Panthers finally
crossed home plate with two runs in the top half of the fourth in-
ning. The two runs placed Paulding in the drivers seat with a 2-
0 lead, but the Aces had other ideas.
In the bottom of the fourth, Hicksville exploded for three runs
to hold on for the one run win and eliminate Paulding from ACME
junior varsity tournament play.
The loss drops the Panthers to 1-8 on the year.
Dakota Bradford was the only Panther to have any success at
the plate. The sophomore delivered the only Panther hit with a
Gage McGarvey pitched for the Panthers and in four innings
of work gave up three hits and three walks while striking out four.
The 2-5 Aces were plagued with four errors but got enough
timely hits in the fourth inning to secure the win. Trevor Kreiling
and Gage Yoder each had a single with Colin Sholl adding an RBI

Myrtle and Owen Lovejoy Jeffery raised a family of 10 children
in Paulding County. Owens father, James Jeffery, was report-
edly a conductor with the Underground Railroad at his home in
Wayne County. The elder Jeffery moved to Paulding County later
in life and is buried here.
Ten children born to Myrtle and Owen L. Jeffery were the grandchildren of a former Underground Railroad conductor, James
Jeffery. They grew up hearing tales recanted about how the familys involvement in assisting slaves get to freedom. Members of
the sibling group are, from left - Ray, Merle, Frank, Gale, Delbert, Dorris, Owen Jim, Harold Leo, Zella and Lenna.
Jeffery family heritage strengthened through the years
Progress Staff Writer
Part 2 of 2
In part one of this story we
learned about the Jeffery familys
adventures in Ohio and information
about the Underground Railroad.
James Jeffery married four times.
His last wife was Marietta Barnes
and that is where the Paulding
County connection comes about.
James Jeffery spent the last four
years of his life in Paulding County
and is buried at Live ak Cemetery.
Owen Jeffery, one of James sons,
came to Paulding County when he
was 21. Owen married Myrtle
Baker Jeffery and they had 10 chil-
dren, eight boys and two girls. The
family of 10 included Ray, Merle,
Gale, Frank, Del, Dorris, Zella,
Owen James, Lenna and Leo. Five
of the sons remained in farming.
Ray Jeffery was only 7 when his
mother passed away.
He said, She used to make all of
our clothes, including shirts, pants
and everything. He noted, I was
never so glad in my life to get a pair
of store-bought pants to wear.
In her obituary it says: She was
an exceptionally fine woman, de-
voted to her home and family al-
ways striving for their welfare,
inspiring them in school work, in-
dustrious lives and in the better
things of life. Her love and motherly
care will be greatly missed from the
family circle. Her hands were al-
ways open, her heart ready to assist
neighbors and friends. The commu-
nity in her death has lost a noble
He then married Onata Birk-
holder, who Ray said was a good
mother to him. The family resided
on a farm east of Paulding currently
owned by the Paulding School.
With eight sons around, the Jef-
ferys liked to play baseball and
Owen was often seen pitching a ball
to his sons. One game that was
played was against another big fam-
ily by the name of Outland. The
game was going to pit one family
against the other to see who was
best at baseball.
The day of the game came and
Ray said, Well I think the Outlands
got some other players that werent
family members. Well, anyways it
rained and we didnt play that long,
but we won.
The Jefferys attended Paulding
School and walked about 3/4 of a
One daughter became a teacher and
another daughter worked as a social
worker for the YMCA. She was a
graduate of Defiance College and got
her masters degree from Columbia,
in New York City. Frank became a
teacher and principal of an elementary
school while also holding a position
with the Defiance College.
Many Jefferys were active in com-
munity events and the local political
arena. Del was a state representative,
some of them served on various
boards such as township trustees and
on the school boards. Owen himself
was a county commissioner for 18
The Jeffery children had such deep
respect and love for their parents they
requested that their sons be pall bear-
ers at their funerals.
Ray Jeffery is currently in his 90s,
lives in Antwerp, and is the last sur-
viving child of Owen Jeffery. Ray is
sharp, witty and knows many stories
about life in his era. Ray married
Dorothy Smith whose father owned a
car dealership in Antwerp. It was re-
ported that it was the oldest Buick
dealership in the world. Ray and
Dorothy had four children.
Ray also has a deep resonant voice
and he recalls singing the Life Buoy
commercial to his children. He sang it
to me and it goes:
Singin in the bath tub, Singin for
Joy, Livin the life of Lifebuoy, Cant
help singin cause we know Lifebuoy
really stops B.O.

In The
Hot fun in the summertime garden
Summer really just began
four days ago, when the sun
reached its most northern po-
sition for those of us in the
Northern Hemisphere. But it
got really hot at least a week
before that and the craziness
that passes for weather these
days continues.
When it gets like this, when
Im wishing it would rain so
that I dont have to haul the
hoses all around the yard to
rescue the plants that are
parched by the sun and the
hot winds, I start looking at
my garden a little differently
than I did in the freezing cold
days of winter.
Somehow, back in January
as I looked out at the snow,
being so far removed from
the heat and humidity of sum-
mer, I forgot that I had said
just a few months before, that
I was going to start gardening
smarter. I had vowed to extri-
cate any plant that needed
coddling, especially in the
way of watering. Dont you
remember me saying that last
year? (In case you dont, it
was Sept. 18, to be exact.)
The harsh winter took care
of some of the plants that
were fussy, but the Ligularia
is still there, still pouting over
the lack of moisture. I should-
nt have planted it in the first
place, but you know how that
is when youre at the garden
center. Something pretty
catches your eye and you
think it wont be that much
work, right?
I bought it anyway, and
every year Ive had it, the
thing looks like its lacking
something. You know, like
water. I have a hard time tak-
ing something out of the gar-
den if its still alive, but two
wrongs dont make a right, so
this time its coming out. Im
saying it out loud so that you
will hold me to it. I promise
Ill dig it up after it blooms
one last time. No use wasting
That will leave space in the
garden for something else and
it has to be a drought tolerant
plant. Im sure you have your
favorites that take a beating
from the dry heat, and Id
love to know what they are.
(Email me!). Here are some
of mine:
Sedums. A long, long time
ago, I did a smart thing with-
out even knowing it and
planted a bunch of creeping
sedums on the west side of
our house. The soil was awful
and I didnt know back then
that you could swap out exist-
ing soil with new good stuff,
so I asked at the garden center
what would survive hot sun,
drying winds, and a neglect-
ful gardener? They told me
sedums, and boy, were they
I dont have to do a thing.
They just grow and spread
and look dandy, all on their
own. Why, some of them you
dont even have to plant. Ive
taken a fistful of Sedum acre
from one place in the garden
and thrown it down in another
and it takes root and grows.
Its almost like magic.
You cant really do that
with the taller sedums like
Autumn Joy or the one I
like even better, Autumn
Fire, but theyre just as easy
to grow after theyre planted.
By the way, have you been
cutting your tall sedums back
so they dont flop later in the
year when they bloom? Do
for them just like you do your
mums, pinching by one-third,
stopping by July 4 so that
they have time to set flowers
for fall.
Daylilies. You either love
em or hate em. But really,
its hard to hate a plant that
you merely have to dig a
hole, any hole, anywhere,
stuff it in, tuck the soil back
in around it, give it a squirt of
water, and then watch it go to
Some are better than oth-
ers, for sure, when it comes to
yellowing foliage late in the
season, after theyve
bloomed, but you know what
to do, right? Cut them off,
then see how fast and how
pretty and green it grows
back. Want to know which
one knocks my socks off?
Primal Scream. Perfect
name for not-just-another-or-
ange daylily. Trust me on this
one and get it.
Natives. Im going to lump
several all together, and you
know these are all going to do
well, because they were born
here. Theyve seen their fair
share of droughts, floods, and
frigid winters, and theyve
adapted, much better than we
have. For an easy summer-
blooming garden, plant cone-
flowers, tickseed, blanket
flowers, and black-eyed Su-
sans. And dont forget the
milkweed the monarchs
will thank you for that.
Now, does anyone want a
Ligularia? Ive got one you
can have.
