Emotions Run High With Pat West Four Girls Crowned In 2014
Subdivision & Dennis Apartments Miss Montpelier Pageant
During Zoning Meeting

ADDRESSING THE COUNCIL ... Tim Dennis attempts to explain the recent changes
to his proposal to expand Oldfield Village.
By: Chelsie Firestone
THE VILLAGE REPORTER
Approximately 60 people filled the
Wauseon Council Chambers for a
special meeting concerning a zoning
change on July 7. The zoning change,
coming at the request of Tim Dennis
of Dennis Apartments, involves the
proposed extension of Oldfield Village
on acreage Dennis already owns beside
the Pat West Subdivision. The extension
would require a change in zoning
from R-2 (single family status) to PUD
(planned unit development). The change
is one that many residents feel may be
a dangerous precedent that would allow
other developers to continue to build
throughout Wauseon.
Dennis opened the meeting by
explaining changes he has made to his
plan in an effort to meet the concerns
of the Pat West residents. Changes
explained included how the water mains
would be ran into the development
and the amount of times per week
refuse would be picked up. Dennis
also acknowledge that the number of
planned units has gone from 37 to 38
and explained that the plan is an effort
to address what he sees as an increased
demand for housing in the Wauseon
area.
Denniss opening statement did not
last long as concerned residents began
to take their turn at the podium to ask
questions and to elaborate on their
concerns. Tom Bechill was the first to
address Dennis, Wauseon City Council,
and Attorney Mark Hagans, who is
representing the City of Wauseon in
the matter. Bechill explained that he
and other residents of the Pat West
subdivision have invested heavily in

their residences because they love the


neighborhood, which they see as having
plenty of open space, and being a quiet
and safe place to live. Bechill explained
that he would not have invested as
heavily in his residence as he had if he
had known that the proposed changes
were a possibility and that the pleasant
environment of Pat West is the work of
all of the neighbors. This is the reason
for zoning laws the protection of
investments.
Susan Short also spoke, thanking
Tim Dennis for trying to address the
concerns of the residents but noting
that nothing short of R2 zoning would
satisfy their concerns. Among the
concerns listed by Short and several
other residents was the plans ability to
meet the criteria of the Comprehensive
Plan and to meet the criteria set forth
in the existing ordinances. Congestion,
crime, and aesthetics were also a major
concern. Data supporting the Pat West
residents argument that crime would
be significantly higher and that there is
no current need for additional housing
in Wauseon were presented.
Dennis
later
addressed
these
concerns by asking where the Pat West
residents had found their data and by
explaining that calls made to the police
department concerning loud music or
other minor complaints constitutes
a crime wave happening in Oldfield
Village. Pat West residents refuted
Denniss claim by alleging that he was
overlooking the more serious calls made
to the Wauseon Police Department from
the village.
Dennis also commented that the
census information being used to
support the Pat West residents claims
is now four years old and does not
coincide
with
current
economic trends or the
requests made to his
office from those looking
for housing. He went on to
further explain that, while
no new industries have
come into the area that
would suggest the need for
additional housing, that
the addition of one or two
employees by a company
does not necessarily

Montpelier Balloonist Greg Lee Demonstrates


Balloon Set Up In Pre-Festival Event
balloon during inflation to
ensure there are no holes,
and that all guide lines
used to operate the balloon
are straight and untangled.
The pilot also ensures the
parachute covering the
opening of the balloon at
the top properly aligns
in place. The parachute
on top of the balloon
controls the release of
air from the balloon and
lowers the balloon to the
ground. Once the balloon
has been properly inflated
and upright, the pilot will
light the burner unit and
release hot air into the
balloon, allowing lift off
and enabling flight.

Hot Air Balloons are


able to gain flight once fully
assembled and charged
with hot air. In order to
launch, pilots must have
a ground wind speed no
greater than 10 MPH.
For flight, the pilot has at
his control in the basket
four 10 gallon propane
cylinders, along with the
pilot control panel.
Balloon
pilots
are
certified and must undergo
training in order to receive
certification. Additionally,
the
process
for pilot
certification
is
closely
supervised by the Federal
Aviation
Administration
and an individual may

attain a Balloon Pilot


License and if the pilot will
be providing commercial
services, a Commercial
Pilot License is required
as well.
The
1st
Annual
Montpelier
Balloon
Festival will feature 10
Hot Air Balloons, with
passenger rides offered
throughout the festival at
a cost of $250.00 per rider.
Additionally, 1 Balloon will
be designated to provide
tethered ascending rides,
which will cost $10.00 per
passenger.

Montpelier
will
be
hosting
the
Montpelier Area Chamber
of Commerce 2014-1st
Annual Montpelier Balloon
Festival and Bean Days
celebration
beginning
July 12 with the Pride
of Montpelier Pageant,
followed by events running
from Thursday, July 17
through Sunday July 20
in the downtown area and
at the Williams County
Fairgrounds.
A new event this year
and the first of its kind for
Montpelier, the Chamber of
Commerce will be hosting

the 1st Annual Balloon


Festival, and Montpelier
resident and Balloon Pilot
Greg Lee and his ground
crew provided a media
set up and familiarization
with
the
equipment
that will be brightening
Montpeliers skies for two
days. Assisting Greg at this
evenings
demonstration
was Ryan Stuck, Mike
Mercer along with his son
Korban Mercer, Julie Lee,
and Jason Luke from the
CoC
Festival
Planning
Committee.
The entire balloon fit
snuggly in the bed of Gregs
pick-up truck, and consists
of
a
pilot/passenger
basket, the nylon balloon,

and an inflation fan along


with the necessary parts
to assemble the basket
and balloon. The balloons
burner (which has an
output of 15 million BTUs)
came packed separately
and is assembled above
the balloons basket. The
balloon itself is a nylon
material, which consists of
over 1000 yards of fabric,
and has a protective Nomex
flame resistance bottom
portion, which protects
the lower material on the
balloon from the heat of
the burner.
Full assembly of the
Balloon, from in the truck
to completed and ready to
fly, normally takes from
15 - 20 minutes with an
experienced crew. Prior to
assembly, the pilot of the
Balloon will release what
is known as a Pie Ball,
which is a helium filled
balloon used to measure
and gage the direction
of the wind. This will
determine the layout for
assembly of the balloon,
with the top heading in the
direction of the wind. The
first step in assembly is to
prepare the basket with
its support poles and set
up of Kevlar Ropes affixing
the basket to the balloon.
As an additional safety
measure, the basket is built
with steel cables that also
affix to the balloon. Once
the basket is assembled, it
is laid on its side and the
balloon is rolled out from
its storage bag in the wind
direction. Inflation of the
balloon once laid out is
accomplished with the use
of a Cold Pack fan, which
fills the balloon with cool
air and inflates the balloon
on the ground. During
this process, the pilot
will carefully inspect the

SOME NEEDED REPAIRS ... The corner of North Madison and East Rings is just
one of the areas of sidewalks being repaired in West Unity this summer.
By: Chelsie Firestone
THE VILLAGE REPORTER
Members of the West Unity Village
Council convened on Thursday, July
10 for their regular meeting. With no
legislative matters needing addressed
by council, the agenda was relatively
short. Council did learn, however, of a
recent audit finding that shows deficit
spending at the sewer plant.
Fiscal
Officer Kim Grime explained that the
current sewer revenue is inadequate to
cover the expense of loan obligations.
Mayor Peg Bernath pointed out that
this may be only a matter of re-allocation
as there is a current rate increase
scheduled in January. Councilman Don
Leu also mentioned that if this involves
a loan that will be coming due for pay
off within two years and suggested that,
if such is the case, that the loan be paid
off. All council members indicated that
they are not in favor a rate increase.
The Finance Committee will meet at
6:30 p.m. on July 24 to discuss all
alternatives.
In his report, Village Administrator
Ric Beals informed council that:
~There is some interest from residents
in purchasing the 50 x 50; village owned
lot. Council discussed both the process
of advertising the lot and putting up for
bid as well as the possibility of using the
lot to create a driveway connection to
the alley. A decision will be made at the
next meeting.
~After seeing a demonstration that it

was the opinion of both Beals and Street


Supervisor Jim Eisel that the purchase
of a used DuraPatcher for $30,000
would be more cost effective than the
purchase of a new tar kettle at $24,000.
It was discussed that the village is in
need of patching pot holes and filling in
cracks year around and that the village
would ultimately come out ahead with
the purchase.
~Automatic doors will be installed
at the Kissell Building by the Maumee
Valley Planning Organization.
~There was a six inch water main
break at Water Street and West Jackson
the week before the meeting.
~It is possible that the village may
be able to obtain grant monies for the
development of Wabash Park.
~There is a need for an updated legal
description before any further progress
can be made of the NORTA land the
village intends to buy. The current
description outlines the Rails to Trails
tracts of land as they extend across the
county. Village Solicitor Ryan Thompson
suggested contacting County Engineer
Todd Roth for assistance in creating a
legal description of only the section of
land lying within the village.
~The EverBridge county wide alert
system should be up and running soon.
The next meeting of the West Unity
Village Council will be held on July 24
at 7:30 p.m. in council chambers.

Stryker Native Completes Basic Training


Navy Seaman Recruit Dustin W.
Gilders, son of Joseph R. Brenner of
Stryker, Ohio and Betsy A. Wyckhouse
of Delta, Ohio, recently completed U.S.
Navy basic training at Recruit Training
Command, Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week program, Gilders
completed a variety of training which
included classroom study and practical
instruction on naval customs, first aid,
firefighting, water safety and survival, and
shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis
was also placed on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot camp is

Battle Stations. This exercise gives


recruits the skills and confidence they
need to succeed in the fleet. Battle
Stations is designed to galvanize the basic
warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication,
teamwork and endurance in each recruit
through the practical application of basic
Navy skills and the core values of Honor,
Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly
Navy flavor was designed to take into
account what it means to be a Sailor.
Gilders is a 2013 graduate of Delta
Senior High School, Delta, Ohio.

FA
4-H Camp Palmer Is In Full
Swing & New Pool Is Coming

PHOTO PROVIDED

THANKING THE DONORS ... Camp Palmer celebrates the finish of a brand new
memorial patio with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Brick donors were invited to the
event.
On June 4th 4-H Camp Palmer
began their 67th year of resident
summer camp for youth from northwest
Ohio. So far over 920 campers have had
the joy of attending camp. The season
began with over 120 youth enjoying the
25th year of science camp, 150 youth
from Williams County, 120 youth from
Auglaize County, 212 youth from Fulton
County, 205 youth from Henry County
and over 120 youth from Allen County.
This past April the 4-H Camp Palmer
board made it official that the camps
original pool built in 1957 would be
used for the last season and the new
one would be in place by summer of
2015. Some recent donations that are
making this possible included the Helen
Sell Estate Bequest of $54,372, Defiance
Area Foundation grant of $10,000,
Cooper Farms Foundation of $5000 and
a number of other donations, including
the new brick memorial patio/flagpole.
This memorial patio was dedicated
with a blue ribbon cutting on June 14.
Several of the brick donors attended the
event and enjoyed seeing Fulton County
youth enjoying camp activities. Special
recognition was given to Lyle and Hilda
Spiess for sponsoring a $5000 donation
to this project to pay for the concrete
slab and the purchase of 1089 bricks!
A 22 ft. by 22 ft. patio now surrounds
the camps flagpole at the center of
camp. Dedicated 8 by 8 bricks can be
purchased by individuals or businesses.
Individual, family or non-profit youth
group can order one for $100.00 or
business can purchase a brick for $275

to advertise as thousands of youth and


adults will walk by the patio at the
center of camp. The next set of bricks
will be installed before the camps
annual Celebrate Open house program
scheduled for Sunday, October 5.
Some other programs coming up this
season include a new Family Camp open
to the public for August 2-3. Families
can camp in our cabins and participate
in
canoeing,
swimming,
zipline,
campfire as well as enjoy the annual
fireworks display at Harrison Lake State
on August 2. Also, our present camp
pool will be open for a final swim for
alumni, former campers, families on
August 10th-1:00-3:00 p.m.
Some people may be surprised to
learn that after 4-H Camps, Camp
Palmer will host 6 band camps/retreat
from the following schools: Eastwood
High School, Elida High School, Start
High School, Rodgers, Woodward and
Bowsher High School. Other programs
include family reunions, special camps,
leadership retreats, competition fun
shoot, church picnics and retreats, fall
outdoor education school programs and
more!
Thanks on behalf of 4-H Camp
Palmer for the generous gifts from Helen
Sell Estate, Defiance Area Foundation,
Cooper Farms Foundation, Lyle and
Hida Spiess and many other. For more

Fayette Chamber Recognition Dinner


To Recognize Citizen Of The Year &
Community Accomplishments
The Fayette Area Chamber will host
its annual Community Recognition
Dinner on Thursday, July 24th, 2014 in
the Rorick Room at the Fayette Opera
House.
The event is held annually to
recognize Fayettes Citizen of the Year
and to draw attention to the progress
and accomplishments that have taken
place over the past year.
Chamber President Mike Figgins
has also announced that the honorable
Jason Smith, Mayor of Jackson,
Michigan, will present the keynote
address for this years event. Smith,
one of Michigans youngest mayors,
has initiated an aggressive plan for
the revitalizing Jackson. In addition to
setting a goal of creating new jobs in
his community, Smith also has stated
his intention to, reconnect Jacksons
citizens with the government. He
emphasized that Jackson is a small
enough city that its citizens can all work
together for the betterment of the entire

population. After all he says, were all


connected.
That
is
the
same
theme
connectedness that has kept Fayette
alive and growing throughout its history
and most recently during the Great
Recession.
Figgins notes that while Fayette and
Jackson, differ in their population base
and governmental structure that both
are connected by their concern about the
wise stewardship of their shared natural
resources, the health of their linked
manufacturing economies and by the
maintenance and planned development
of their established transportation
system, most notably US 127.
The doors open at 6:00 with opening
remarks and dinner at 6:30 p.m. Cost
for the dinner is $12.00 per plate.
Reservations may be made by calling
Dee Lawrence at (419) 237-2292 by July
21st.

Biking Adventure Leads
College Students To Wauseon Emotions Run High With Pat West ...

PHOTO BY TAMMY ALLISON, STAFF

ON A JOURNEY THROUGH SMALL TOWNS ... Ji Ye (left) and Dina Rudelson (right)
by their bikes in downtown Wauseon.
By: Tammy Allison
THE VILLAGE REPORTER
Dina Rudelson and Ji Ye, sophomores
this fall at the University of Michigan in
Ann Arbor, decided over the Fourth of
July holiday weekend to take a biking
adventure in search of small town
fireworks. The girls pedaled the seven
hour journey to Wauseon.
Inspired by their friends 1,600 mile
bike ride to Colorado, the girls decided
to create their own biking adventure.
Their journey took them through several
small towns. Rudelson says, The best
part of our trip has been the small
towns. The locals, everyone has been
so nice. Ye adds, I think Wauseon has
been my favorite small town.
Much different from the urban
culture of Ann Arbor, the girls have
enjoyed the small town, everyone seems
to know everyone, feel of Wauseon. They

experienced the spectacular firework


display on the Fourth. They were
unique. Ive never heard them to music,
Rudelson expressed.
Staying overnight at Hudson State
Park on the way and then Sunnys
Campground in Wauseon, the girls slept
in a small tent which fit in their backpack
and ate Cliff bars for simple meals. They
appreciated the flat geography of Ohio
which made biking easier than the
hillier terrain of Michigan. Preferring to
stay on the back roads rather than main
roads, they relied on the GPS and map
system of their Smartphones along the
way.
After a visit to the Wauseon Farmers
Market Saturday morning, the girls
planned to begin the trek back to
Ann Arbor. Both agree that its been a
memorable, fun ride.

REFLECTIONS OF THE PAST


1961 Wauseon Varsity Football

warrant a headline but does increase


the demand for housing. While the Pat
West residents data suggests a vacancy
rate of approximately 9%, Dennis
argues that his personal vacancy rate is
virtually non-existent, perhaps because
he is giving residents what they really
want a home with a front door, a back
door, and a porch. Dennis explains that
people seeking housing do not want
to live stacked on top of one another
in apartments with parking lots but,
instead, are seeking housing where they
can drive up to their own front door.
Paul Soltis also challenged the plans
ability to meet the legal language of the
ordinance that would allow for PUD
zoning. The ordinance states that such a
change would need to benefit the entire
community and be an aesthetic asset to
the total community. He also asserted
his belief that the proposed changes are
at the pure benefit of the land owner
(Dennis) and expressed his desire for
council to intervene. We voted for you.
Protect us; we expect you to protect us,
he stated. You have one chance to do
the right thing. This could devastate
and break this community.
Will Rogers, a Wauseon Police Officer
who does not own land in the Pat West
subdivision, also spoke and pointed out
the concerns of others outside of the
subdivision and presented a petition to
council.
Not all of those who took the podium
did so to speak out against the proposal,
however. Alyse Mull, an employee of
Dennis Apartments, also attempted to
speak and stated that she felt like Tim
Dennis and Dennis Apartments were
being bullied. Mull also stated that
the residents were overlooking the good
that Dennis Apartments has brought to
the community by offering affordable
housing to youngsters starting out and
senior citizens looking to downsize.
Tim has worked to not impose on
anyone. This is his town, too. Hes
proud of Wauseon, too. He works to
keep the revenue here. We get phone
calls everyday for people looking for

apartments not houses. Not everyone


can have a mortgage, Mull explained.
She also pointed out that Dennis
Apartments rents to both senior citizens
and those with handicaps, with Tim
Dennis doing all of the maintenance and
upkeep of those apartments.
Mull was visibly emotional during
her turn at the podium and the
audiences emotion also elevated during
her arguments, leaving Wauseon Mayor
Doug Shaw struggling to keep order
during the meeting which has already
gone beyond its scheduled limit.
During
the
meeting,
Council
President Heather Kost inquired as to
the primary reason for eviction from
Oldfield Village and as to whether or not
Dennis Apartments had been turned
away from any other village where he
currently owns property. Dennis noted
the primary reason for eviction is nonpayment or inability to get along with
others and that he has not presented
such a proposal to any other community.
Current land ownership and pending
purchases of Tim Dennis were also put
into question by audience members.
Dennis noted that he does own the
land the proposal deals with as well as
other land and does have pending land
purchases. He did, however, explain
that he does not intend to expand
beyond the current proposed plan.
While some residents asserted that
they feel no direct ill will towards Tim
Dennis or Dennis Apartments, the
tension in the room remained apparent
through the entirety of the meeting.
When asked for a final statement by
The Village Reporter, Tim Dennis
responded that his intent is to put
Wauseon to work. He expressed his
frustration by explaining that New
houses and duplexes should not be a
reason for controversy or scorn. All we
want to do is put people to work and
provide places for people to live.
The matter will be put to council for
vote during the July 21 council meeting.

Wauseon Hosts The 2014 Crosley


National Automobile Club Nationals
By: Benjamin Kessler
THE VILLAGE REPORTER
It was a blast from the past as the
tiny Crosley vehicles invaded the Fulton
County Fairgrounds this past weekend.
On July 10th-12th the Crosley Club held
their annual National meet and awards.
The Crosley Club was first founded in
1969 and has now grown to over 1,000
members strong. The Crosleys were
first made in 1939 and they stopped
production in 1955. The Crosley was
a hit during World War II due to its
great gas mileage. The best model was
the Crosley station wagon, which in
1948, sold more station wagons than

Wauseon Farmers Market


Offers Something For Everyone

any other car maker. Coming in a close


second to the station wagon was the
Crosley Sedan. In 1952, however, sales
decreased dramatically and soon after
production of the Crosley ceased.
The main event at this Years event
was the Road Rally Friday night when
the Crosleys lined up at the fairgrounds
before cruising into downtown Wauseon
making a stop at Tinys Dairy Barn.
On Saturday this years winner was
announced as well as the silent auction
winners. Door prizes were also given
away all day Saturday.

The Wauseon Library Welcomes


Local Author Megan Spengler
By: Benjamin Kessler

THE VILLAGE REPORTER

This past Saturday


a local author held a
book signing event at the
Wauseon public library.
Megan Spengler is a two
time author. Her newest
novel, Revenge at Camp
Tepeki, is the sequel to
her first work, Operation
Wrinklesteen.
Megan
grew up in Napoleon and
graduated from Napoleon
in 1997. She went on to
college, obtaining a degree
in elementary education,
but after a year decided
that teaching wasnt what
she truly wanted to do.
Megan decided to take
some
writing
classes
and started working on
her first novel.
After
she had finished writing
it, she tried hard to get
it published and after
many calls and a year of
waiting she almost gave
up. Fortunately, with the
encouragement of her husband to try
one more time she landed a deal with
Tate Publishing. She said she owed
her success to her husband because
without his encouragement to try one
more time she would have given up and
never got her work published.
Megan has started the third edition
in this series but the work on this
novel, which she plans to complete after
spending some time with her new child.

She currently writes books for Junior


High aged girls and you can find her
books online at Amazon.com and the
Barnes and Noble online store. You can
also go to www.tatepublishing.com/
bookstore or call 1-888-361-9473 for a
copy. While Megan has no more book
signings lined up, be sure to keep your
eyes open as she does intend to schedule
more in the future.

MUSICAL ENTERTAINMENT ... Steve Snider from Fayette entertaining vendors and
shoppers.
By: Tammy Allison
THE VILLAGE REPORTER
Every Saturday morning between
mid-June and October, the empty gravel
lot where the former Arcade building
once sat in downtown Wauseon, is
transformed by the growing Wauseon
Farmers Market. A stroll around the
market on a recent sunny Saturday
morning revealed the pleasant smells of
locally grown herbs, a friendly alpaca in
its pen, a local church offering free coffee
and lemonade to visitors, live music,
and community friends exchanging
greetings.
Much more than simply vegetables,
the Wauseon Farmers Market is
a collection of local people coming
together to share their locally grown
and produced goods. Sponsored by the
Wauseon Downtown Association, the
Farmers Market is in its fourth year,
and its second year at this location on
Saturday mornings. Held from 8:30-1
on Saturdays, the market offers fruits,
vegetables, breads, cheeses, homemade
crafts, flowers, plants, and honey.
Farmers Market t-shirts are available
for purchase.
James Kerr, President of the
Wauseon Downtown Association, shares
with a smile, The Wauseon Farmers
Market is growing. The idea we want to
get across to the public is that this is
your community.the Farmers Market
is a place to shop and visit with your
friends.
Items for purchase vary weekly by
vendor and what produce is seasonally
available. Presently, beans, cherries,
zucchini and yellow summer squash,
blueberries,
and
raspberries
are
plentiful. In the upcoming weeks,
peaches will be making an appearance

with apples and winter squash later


in the summer. In addition, each
week, generally, live music from local
entertainers is featured. This particular
week, Steve Snider from Fayette
entertained with country western
favorites.
This week, Bill and Julie Verhelst
from the Swanton/Neapolis area were
joined at the Farmers Market with
Sonny, one of the thirty alpacas on their
farm. Sonny makes appearances at
multiple Farmers Markets and even has
his own celebrity Facebook page, Sonny
Alpaca, which details his scheduled
appearances. The Verhlests offer items
that feature alpaca fur such as yarn and
both hand and needle felted items such
as socks. The texture of alpaca fur has
been compared to cashmere.
The Wauseon Downtown Association
has a vision for continually growing
the Farmers Market and meeting the
needs of local citizens. We have fruits,
vegetables, breads, cheeses, honey
something to fill the entire plate. And its
all local, Kerr explains. A theme of the
weekly market has been health. Blood
pressure checks are offered most weeks
as well. A future goal is to incorporate
local restaurants utilizing the local
produce in cooking demonstrations.
Kerr stresses that they are always
looking for new vendors. The cost is
only $5 a week or $50 a season. This
year, the season consists of 16 weeks.
The money goes into the Wauseon
Downtown Association fund and is used
to advertise the Farmers Market.
For locally produced items and great
fellowship, the community is invited to
spend some time Saturday mornings at
the Wauseon Farmers Market.

Wauseon City Council


Accepts Resignation Of
Fred Allen; Seat Now Open
By: Chelsie Firestone
THE VILLAGE REPORTER
The motion to accept the resignation
of former Council Fred Allen was
unanimously approved by Wauseon City
Council during their regular session
on July 7. No comments were made
by council or other village officials in
attendance but the resignation follows
Allens two-county felony indictment.
Allen was indicted by a Fulton County
grand jury on one count of theft in office,
a fifth degree felony, and one count of
tampering with records, a third degree
felony.
Allen was arrested on the subsequent
warrant held by the Fulton County
Sherriffs Office on June 25. He was
released on his own recognizance and
arraigned in the Fulton County Common
Please Court. No hearing date has yet
been set.
Allens council term was set to expire
in 2015 and the remainder of that term
is now open. The city will be accepting
applications for that vacancy until July
18. An interview process will follow
beginning the week of July 21 and the
city is hopeful to have a new councilor in
place by the beginning of August.
Following the approval of Allens
resignation, council went on to hear from
Councilor Shane Chamberlin, who spoke
on behalf of the Park Board. The Boards
recommendation to purchase 8 recycling
containers to be placed at Biddle Park,
with a cost totaling $1239.02, was
unanimously approved. There will be one
container for aluminum cans and one
container for plastic bottles placed at four
different locations throughout the park.
Council President Heather Kost spoke
on behalf of the Personnel Committee,
which recommended that the definition
of a part-time city employee be changed
to someone working 32 hours or less to
someone working 30 hours or less. The
revision will put the citys employment
policies in alignment with the verbiage
of Obamas Health Care Act. That
recommendation was also unanimously
approved.
Moving on to hear department head
reports, Regional Planning Director David
Wright noted that he doesnt expect to
hear to hear any decisions about the

applications for the CDBG (Community


Block Development Grant) funds until
September. Wright also noted that there
is currently $395,000 in the countys
revolving loan fund and asked council to
seek out projects eligible for assistance.
When asked whether or not the current
Saras Garden project qualifies for the
use of these funds, Wright stated that it
does but only if it intends to meet certain
criteria such as being open to the public.
Fire Chief Rick Sluder had little to
report but accepted the gratitude given by
Mayor Doug Shaw for the fireworks show
and thanked the Police Department for
their assistance during the show. When
asked if donations can still be made for
the fireworks, Sluder responded, I sure
hope those donations come up to about
$7000.
Police Chief Keith Torbed noted that
16 people recently took and passed an
entrance exam for police officers and that
the next round of testing will begin soon.
Torbet also reported that the Fourth of
July events at Biddle Park went smoothly,
that there was only one accident that
evening, and that parking was cleared
out by 11:30 PM.
Torbet also informed council that the
department is seeking approval from
the FCC to shift to another approved
radio frequency which would allow the
purchase of a narrow banding license
with a federal grant. The approval has
been a long effort for the Wauseon
Police Department due to the Canadian
governments request to the FCC to deny
the department based on the narrow
banded frequencies interference with a
Canadian frequency.
The only legislative matter brought
before
council
was
a
resolution
authorizing the mayor to enter into an
amended agreement for a countywide
Emergency Management Agency. The
resolution passed with a 5-0 vote.
Also approved was a motion to
schedule a public hearing regarding
the final approval of the zoning change
for a PUD (planned unit development)
extension of Oldfield Village on July 21 at
7:00 PM in council chambers.

THE VILLAGE REPORTER

With the arrival of warmer than


normal temperatures and a double blast
of severe thunderstorms, it looks like
weve finally turned the meteorological
corner in our area. June 2014 arrived
a tad on the blas side, but made a
distinct impression on the area with
a destructive severe thunderstorm on
June 23, and a cliffhanger on the night
of June 30 and July 1.
According to the monthly report from
the National Weather Service in North
Webster, Indiana (KIWX), June 2014
was a warm and wet month at the KFWA
observation station in Fort Wayne.
The overall weather pattern allowed
for a warm and humid airmass to stay
entrenched across the lower Great
Lakes region for much of the month,
the report said, ...which brought
periodic showers and thunderstorms to
the Fort Wayne throughout the month.
The thunderstorm and rainfall activity
was fairly scattered, and while portions
of the region had rainfall totals well
above normal, some areas north and
south of the Fort Wayne area actually
saw near or only slightly above normal
precipitation.
Temperatures were above normal,
and while the humidity throughout the
month made it feel very warm, actual air
temperatures were never too extreme,
the KIWX synopsis continued. Only two
days during June reached 90 degrees
at Fort Wayne. There were only seven
days during the entire month when the
average daily temperature was below
normal, but none during the last half
of the month. However only six June
days had average daily temperatures of
at least seven degrees or greater above
normal.
The average temperature in June at
Fort Wayne was 71.9 degrees, which is
1.8 degrees above normal, and ranking
it as the 29th warmest June on record.
The warmest temperatures was 93
degrees on the 17th and the coldest was
45, almost 14 degrees below normal, on
the 14th.
Total precipitation for the month of
June at Fort Wayne was 5.81 inches,
which is 1.65 inches above normal,
ranking it as the 14th wettest June on
record. Nearly the same amount of rain
fell at Fort Wayne during June 2013
when the monthly precipitation total was
5.91 inches, the KIWX report added. At
least a trace of rain fell at South Bend
during 18 days of the month. Twelve
of these days had measurable rainfall,
ten of which with at least a tenth of an
inch of rainfall. Four days had at least a
half inch of rainfall, and two days with
at least an inch of rainfall. The greatest
24-hour rainfall total was 2.22 inches
on the 18th and 19th, and the greatest
calendar day rainfall total was 1.73
inches on the 18th. On the note of the
precipitation, some of it fell in a nonetoo-friendly manner across the area.
On the afternoon of June 23, a severe
thunderstorm developed over Steuben
County and grew in size as it began a
march into Williams County around
1:00 pm. An apparent microburst took
down 13 utility poles on State Route 15,
about a quarter mile south of County
Road G. The storm went on to do more
damage in Fulton and Henry Counties.
On the afternoon of June 30, a strong
center of low pressure over northern
Minnesota dropped a cold front that
pressed southeastward, creating havoc
along the way. As the front advanced,
not one, but two quasilinear convective
systems (QLCS) developed ahead of
the front, keeping meteorologists from
Missouri, Iowa and Wisconsin glued
to their radar scopes. As the first line
progressed easterly, National Weather
Service meteorologists of the offices at
KLOT in Romeoville, Illinois, KMKX in
Dousman, Wisconsin, KGRR in Grand
Rapids, Michigan and KIWX knew that
they were going to have their hands full
for the next several hours.
As the first line advanced through
Illinois and Wisconsin, it developed a
strong bow, indicative of high winds at
the surface. Radar returns from KMKX
indicated the early presence of a mesolow
at the north end, just behind the line,
that was a likely instigator of the bow.
As the northern end moved over Lake
Michigan, the mesolow became well
defined in radar returns from KGRR,
appearing as a small-scale tropical
storm-like rotation just behind the
north end. When it made
landfall, it continued its
easterly push, with severe
thunderstorm warnings
being issued ahead of
its arrival. The southern
end came through Illinois
into Northern Indiana,
generating warnings of its
own...as well as several
tornado warnings. As it
moved to the east though,
the line became stretched
with the northern part

18 - THE VILLAGE REPORTER - YOUR HOMETOWN NEWS SOURCE

now far ahead of the southern. The


southern part weakened, and by the
time it crossed the halfway point to
Ohio, a little over five hours and 280
miles after its inception, it fizzled out
entirely.
Bullet #1 was dodged. Bullet #2,
the second QLCS, turned out to be far
more strong, sturdy, and unfortunately
deadly than its predecessor.
Beginning in eastern Iowa around
the local dinnertime, the second line
exploded as it moved easterly at an
average speed of over 60 miles per
hour. As it approached KLOT and the
Chicago metroplex, radar returns were
showing thunderstorm tops that were
reaching 70,000 feet in height and VIL
(Vertically Integrated Liquid) readings
at and above 70 Kg per cubic meter. It
is normally a given that VIL levels that
high are not just reflections of liquids,
but usually large and heavy hail shafts.
There was plenty of both to go around.
The northern end of this system hugged
the Indiana and Michigan line as it
advanced to the east. The southern end
began weakening with the setting of the
sun, but the northern end remained
potent as it crossed Lake Michigan
and moved into Indiana, generating
five tornado warnings in the northwest
part of the Hoosier State as it arrived
approaching the 11:00 hour.
KIWX issued severe thunderstorm
warnings ahead of the approaching
line, and multiple tornado warnings.
Confirmed EF-1 tornado touchdowns
were recorded in LaPorte County (two),
Starke County (two), Marshall County
(three), Kosciusko County (three),
Wabash County, Whitley County
and LaGrange County. As the line
hammered LaGrange County at about
1:30 am on July 1, it not only dropped
the aforementioned tornado that hit the
west side of LaGrange, it also produced
a pair of microbursts. The first did
damage to the south end of LaGrange,
uprooting trees and destroying a
significant portion of an exterior wall
at Parkside Elementary School. The
second microburst came down on the
northeast side of Big Long Lake, ripping
down trees and creating a damage path
through Stroh and on to Big Turkey
Lake. It was near the northeast side
of Big Long Lake that the microburst
felled an 8-foot diameter tree, slamming
it down through a house and fatally
injuring an occupant.
By this time, many of the small,
individual cells that were popping up
ahead of the line were also becoming
severe in their own right. At 1:44 am,
the National Weather Service issued a
severe thunderstorm watch for most of
Northwestern Ohio. Sixty seconds later,
Williams County was placed under a
severe thunderstorm warning, triggered
by one of those potent pop-up cells.
No damage was reported as a result of
the cell, but the winds behind it were
beginning to howl as the weakening line
approached. At 2:40 am, KIWX issued
a second severe thunderstorm warning
for Williams County, with Fulton
County soon to follow...the line was
entering Ohio.
After plowing through LaGrange
County, the northern end of the line
began to turn to the northeast, while the
remainder of the line continued to push
easterly. Much like its predecessor,
the resulting shift by the northern end
resulted in a stretching, and eventual
breaking of an already weakened line
to the south. Northern Williams and
Fulton Counties saw the worst of the
line on the Ohio side, but the continued
shift to the northeast eventually pulled
the line apart as it crossed over into
Lucas County, giving Toledo little more
than rain and wind. The event, which
covered seven states and 710 miles,
was finally packing it in and calling it
a day.
Looking ahead to the monthly
prognostications from the Climate
Prediction Center, our area is slated
to see a July with normal precipitation
levels, as well as normal temperatures.
Wait a minute...I need to look at that
again.
Yup...
normal
temperatures
AND precipitation. Sorry about the
interruption, dear friends.
Its been so long since Ive seen
normal around this neck o the woods,
Ive completely forgotten what normal
even means.

A Tribute to

Our Local Williams and Fulton County


EMS Volunteers & Workers
Thank you for your service to our communities!

Williams County Emergency Medical Services:


A Lifeline Of Support Serving With Distinction
By: Mark Mercer
THE VILLAGE REPORTER

Emergency Medical Services are


rarely thought of as we past though
our normal routine and go about our
daily business. As a society, we have
become accustomed to knowing that
one simple call to 911 in an emergency will bring lifesaving assistance and
help will be on the way.
The staff and personnel of the Williams County Emergency Medical Services occupy the field here in Williams
County, and they are truly unsung heroes serving quietly in the background.
Local citizens understand that when a
call goes out for assistance, help will
arrive in a timely manner and that is
a reflection of the professionalism and
competence of these lifesaving angles.
The Williams County EMS is led
by Director Jim Hicks, and Director
Hicks is assisted by Training Coordinator Connie Brigle, who has served
the county since the inception of the
Williams County EMS in August of
1979. The organization consists of
15 full time Emergency Medical Technicians along with 75 EMTs categorized as Intermittent on call team
members. The Williams County EMS
also maintains Ambulances with basic lifesaving equipment in Edgerton,
Edon, Pioneer and Stryker along with
2 fully staffed Life Squads (Life Squad
1 and Life Squad 2) on station in the
county 24 hours a day with EMTs and
the full range of modern, up to date
lifesaving equipment. Life Squads 1
and 2 will position themselves strategically across Williams County in order to provide the greatest coverage
and quickest response times should
their services be needed. According to
Training Coordinator Brigle, residents
require EMS services on average approximately 300 times a month here
in Williams County.
The professionals who stand watch
24 hours a day at the EMS for the residents of Williams County fall in four
different main categories: First responders, EMT-Basic, EMT-Intermediate and EMT-Paramedic. Each level
in the profession has various requirements for education and training to
attain certification and become eligible
to perform services. The requirements
and level of care each category may
perform for patients may be found in
the Ohio Administrative Code (ORAC)
under section 4765, entitled State
Board of Emergency Medical Services.
For a first responder (Ex: Police
Officer, Sheriff Deputy, Firefighter,
etc.) ORAC 4765.35 defines the services they may perform as: A first
responder may provide limited emergency medical services to patients until the arrival of an emergency medical
technician-basic, emergency medical
technician-intermediate, or emergency medical technician-paramedic. In
an emergency, a first responder may
render emergency medical services
such as opening and maintaining an
airway, giving mouth to barrier ventilation, chest compressions, electrical interventions with automated de-

fibrillators to support or correct the


cardiac function and other methods
determined by the board, controlling
of hemorrhage, manual stabilization
of fractures, bandaging, assisting in
childbirth, and determining triage of
trauma victims. First Responders
are those who generally arrive at a call
first, as they may be in close proximity
to the individual requiring assistance.
These providers will stabilize the patient and render assistance until one
of the Life Squads arrive on the scene.
The next category EMT-Basic is defined by ORAC 4765.37 and the services a EMT-Basic may perform are:
An emergency medical technician-basic may operate, or be responsible for
operation of, an ambulance and may
provide emergency medical services to
patients. In an emergency, an EMTbasic may determine the nature and
extent of illness or injury and establish priority for required emergency
medical services. An EMT-basic may
render emergency medical services
such as opening and maintaining an
airway, giving positive pressure ventilation, cardiac resuscitation, electrical
interventions with automated defibrillators to support or correct the cardiac function and other methods determined by the board, controlling of
hemorrhage, treatment of shock, immobilization of fractures, bandaging,
assisting in childbirth, management
of mentally disturbed patients, initial
care of poison and burn patients, and
determining triage of adult and pediatric trauma victims. Where patients
must in an emergency be extricated
from entrapment, an EMT-basic may
assess the extent of injury and render
all possible emergency medical services and protection to the entrapped
patient; provide light rescue services
if an ambulance has not been accompanied by a specialized unit; and after
extrication, provide additional care in
sorting of the injured in accordance
with standard emergency procedures.
Along with the certification required
to become an EMT-Basic, continuing
education is a constant in the profession and with the rapid advances in
medical technology, essential. After
meeting specific educational requirements, an EMT-Basic will advance to
the next level of certification, EMTIntermediate.
An EMT-Intermediate certification
allows the EMT to perform additional emergency functions. EMT-Intermediate Certifications under ORAC
4765.38 allow the following level of
emergency services: An emergency
medical technician-intermediate shall
perform the emergency medical services described in this section in accordance with this chapter and any
rules adopted under it. An EMT-I may
do any of the following: Establish and
maintain an intravenous lifeline that
has been approved by a cooperating
physician or physician advisory board,
perform cardiac monitoring, perform
electrical interventions to support or
correct the cardiac function, administer epinephrine, determine triage of

north of Bryan.

adult and pediatric trauma victims.


EMT-Intermediate certified individuals also perform all functions allowed
as an EMT-Basic, and as the training
progresses up each level of certification, more responsibilities are accumulated.
The final category of certification
as an EMT earns the professional the
title Paramedic, and the range of
medical services a Paramedic may perform increases, allowing the response
unit the ability to provide the full
range of lifesaving techniques available in a medical emergency. Under
ORAC 4765.39, a Paramedic may:
perform cardiac monitoring, perform
electrical interventions to support or
correct the cardiac function, perform
airway procedures, perform relief of
pneumothorax, Administer appropriate drugs and intravenous fluids, Determine triage of adult and pediatric
trauma victims. Paramedics make a
wide variety of medical decisions and
an individual holding a paramedic
certification has undergone extensive
training and education to attain this
level of qualification. In addition to
the functions performed at each level

of training, Williams County EMS performs numerous other tasks in their


daily mission.
The men and women of the Williams County EMS are highly trained
professionals who sit quietly in the
background until they are needed,
and when the call comes in, the residents of Williams County can count
on highly trained medical responders
to arrive on the scene and render life
saving aid to those in need. On average, 300 times a month someone in
Williams County calls for assistance.
The Williams County EMS responds to
a variety of calls ranging from medical
emergencies, trauma incidents, accidents of all types as well as performing transfer services from Montpelier
and Bryan Hospitals to larger facilities
throughout Northwest Ohio. Without
the dedication and professionalism of
these tireless public servants, residents would be missing a valuable and
essential means of attaining emergency aid, and their efforts are greatly appreciated all across Williams County.

EMS Volunteers & Workers
Thank you for your service to our communities!

Wauseon Rescue System Works Every Day To Serve


The Citizens Of Wauseon and Fulton County
By: Benjamin Kessler
THE VILLAGE REPORTER
Proud to serve the Wauseon community and surrounding areas at a moments notice, the job of an
E.M.T is not always a rewarding job but these brave
men and women are willing every day to put their
lives on the line to protect the citizens of Wauseon
and Fulton County.
Wauseons rescue system came to life in the late
1930s when the need for a rescue squad was foreseen by the various Fulton County Fire Departments. The first rescue squad was then purchased
from the funds raised by the Wauseon Fire Departments Annual Feather Party. Since the 1930s,

equipment has been purchased with money from


this annual fundraiser with special equipment being donated by various organizations throughout
the years.
Fulton County has four advanced life support
units. ALS8 is the one stationed at the Wauseon
Fire Dept. and is staffed full time 24 hours a day 7
days a week. ALS8 has 3 full time paramedics and
2 full time E.M.TS.
The brave men and women that serve and protect
the citizens of Wauseon are:
Rick Sluder, Wauseon Fire Chief
Galen Chamberlin, Fire Fighter 2/Paramedic
Scott Hibbard, Fire Fighter 1/Paramedic
Lt. J.D Bowers, Fire Fighter 2/Paramedic

Lt. Jeremy Shirkey, Fire Fighter 1/EMT-B


Chris Nelson, Fire Fighter 2/EMT-B
Benjamin Kessler can be reached at
publisher@thevillagereporter.com

We would like to acknowledge and pay tribute to all local


Emergency Medical Staff and Teams that may not have
been mentioned in this years edition. We left voicemails,
emails and fax messages to numerous departments that did not
respond prior to this weeks print run.
Your service and commitment is appreciated.

CHURCH & SPIRITUAL NEWS

Devotional Thought / Fellowship of Christian Athletes


BY: REX STUMP - BAD TRADE?!

One of the worst trades


in history according to
sports analyst took place
in 1920. Looking for cash
to finance the musical
No, No, Nanette, Red
Sox owner Harry Frazee
sold baseballs greatest
player, Babe Ruth, to the
Yankees for $100,000,
plus a $300,000 loan.
What was the impact?
Have you ever heard of
the Curse of the Bambino? Babe Ruth hit 665
of his 714 career homers for the Yankees, including 54
in his first season in the Bronx. He also helped lead the
Yankees to 7 World Series appearances and 4 titles, and
to somethe greatest dynasty in the history of professional sports was born.
Another poor trade took place when NFL Atlanta Falcons Coach, Jerry Glanville said, it would take a plane
crash for Brett Favre see snaps in a real game. Favre
went 0-4 in passing and took a sack for an 11 yard loss
his rookie season with the Falcons. Coach Glanvilles
attitude and Favres rookie stats was enough for the
Falcons to trade Brett away. The result? I believe Brett
Favres MVP-Hall of Fame Career-Super Bowl- recordbreaking life in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers
says it all.
If you are an avid sports fan, you are probably discovering that there is a ton of talk about certain NBA
star players being traded or switching teams. All this
trade talk saturates the sport talk shows. Some people
are curious and want to know where these players will
land. Most people could care less about where these
millionaire ball players will play. All the talk about
these high profile athletes getting traded seems a little
distant to most of us.
Do me a favor and think about the last time you
made a trade. As a kid, it may have been ball cards or

candy. As an adult, it may have been work hours or


position. It could have been clothes or a spot in line
when was the last time you made a trade? Was it a
good trade? Typically, we wont know if its a good trade
immediately. It may take time before we see the results
of our trade.
Let me share one more bad trade with you. When
God gave Moses the 10 Commandments, the people
waited below whining about Moses being gone. Aaron,
Moses brother, was left in charge and the people begged
and complained to him about the need for a god to lead
them. They gathered all the gold, melted it down, and
made a golden calf to worship. In Psalm 106:19-20,
there is a reference to this moment in history. The
people made a calf at Mount Sinai; they bowed before
an image made of gold. They traded their glorious God
for a statue of a grass-eating bull. They forgot God,
their savior, who had done such great things in Egypt.
Did you read that closely? They traded God for a
statue of a grass-eating bull! Thats not a good trade!
We know the story, we read that sentence and laugh
at those people. But are we any different? We replace
God with our own statuespromotion, sports, work,
lust, acceptance, championships, medals, toned bodies. Are we any different than those who traded God
for a golden bull? Lets be honest and realize that anything can become an idol in our lives.
Dont make a bad trade! The impact is life-changing!
Where is God at in your priorities and schedule? Where
is God when it comes to giving? Where is God when it
comes to spending time in worship with other Christians? Its time all of us honestly examined how our
trade life is doing. As the Psalmist mentioned they
forgot God, their SAVIOR, who had done such great
things
Dont forget your Savior and all He has done for you!
Remember the very command that God gave to His people (which includes you and I) You must not have any
other god but me. (Exodus 20:3)
For more reading, check out; Exodus 20:1-6; Exodus 32; and Mark 12:30.

July Edon Community Meal Planned In Cooney

Winning The Battle


For A Generation

HOW LARGE IS YOUR BIBLE?

Recently, I received as a gift a new translation of the


Bible, the New English Version. This particular version
of scripture reads like a more contemporary record of
the biblical narrative of Gods work in human history.
With this translation as an addition to my library of Bible
translations I have a full complement of the most popular
translations of scripture.
However, it is not the number of translation of Bibles
that one owns that ultimately matters but whether we
are obedient to the principles of scripture when it comes
to personal faith and practice. For example, in a recent
Turning Point daily devotional, David Jeremiah writes:
According to the Guinness Book of Records, the smallest
New Testament in the world can fit on your fingertip.
It can be read with a powerful magnifying glass and is
designed to be worn as a pendant or lapel pin.
Theres nothing wrong with wearing our witness or
having lapel pins to spark conversations about Christ, but
the Bible isnt a talisman. The words the Bible contains
are what make it special. The Lord told the Israelites
to teach the Scripture to their children, to wear them
as a sign on their foreheads, and to write them on the
doorposts of their homes. It was Gods way of reminding
them to keep Scripture close and accessible. Some turned
this into a ritual and began wearing phylacteries, little
leather boxes containing a verse from the Law.
Its all right to have verses at our fingertips, and
there are great ways to display our love for Scripture;
but remember, the best place for the Word of God is
in our hearts and minds. Its not about a ritual but a
relationship.
How large is your Bible? Hopefully, it is big enough
to initiate saving faith in your life. The Apostle Paul pit it
this wayRomans 10:17 (KJV), 17 So then faith cometh
by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
