Sarah Noggle said earlier this
week that this year’s county
wheat crop was not only one
of the best in history, but “ab-
solutely phenomenal,” espe-
cially with those farmers who
had over-winter stand issues.
“People were a little sur-
prised when they saw the
yields coming in,” observed
Noggle. “I think most of them
would have been happy for
yields of 70 to 75 bushels-per
acre. This was a good bless-
ing they weren’t planning
on.”
Noggle attributed this
year’s successful crop to
seeding rates, nitrogen use
and getting nitrogen at an op-
timum time and using the va-
rieties.
“Some of the newer vari-
eties are efficient and are dis-
ciplined to use more available
nitrogen,” Noggle said.
“Proper distribution of nitro-
gen at the right time is very
important.
“Nitrogen application at
feekes 8.0 can enhance grain
protein levels,” said Noggle.
“Sometimes it doesn’t raise
‘Phenomenal crop’ of wheat reported
the yield but many times it
does. Feekes 8.0 is when the
plant is putting out the flag
leaf. Sometimes it does in-
crease the yield level.
“There have been a lot of
right things that have come
together this year,” continued
Noggle. “The wheat has been
basically disease free from
powdery mildew, leaf rust,
Stagonospora leaf blotch and
septora glume blotch.”
Noggle credited the cool
June for some of this year’s
response. She noted that cool
temperatures in June can help
increase the yield. They
weren’t above threshold this
year. Because it was cool, it
led to less disease this year.
Wheat is the most widely
grown food crop in the state.
Low prices and major pro-
duction problems from severe
winters in certain areas have
limited the production on
many grain farms.
“When we have one of
those rare dry springs with
low disease levels followed
by a cool June, the yields of
some fields have reached 120
bushels per acre or more,”
commented Noggle.
“Because these growing
seasons are rare, we should
manage for the more normal
weather,” stated Noggle. “It is
the weather that usually pre-
vents us from taking advan-
tage of high management in-
puts such as high seeding
rates and extra nitrogen.”
PAULDING – Two
Paulding men are facing
felony charges after authori-
ties allegedly discovered a
meth lab in a home.
In the early morning
hours of Saturday, July 19,
Paulding County Sheriff’s
deputies accompanied
Paulding County Court
Probation Officer Tony
Gonzales to 759 E. Perry St.
Lot #16 in Paulding to
check on a subject who is on
probation. During a subse-
quent search of the resi-
dence, deputies discovered
an active meth lab, accord-
ing to Sheriff Jason Landers.
Present in the residence
with the meth lab were
Jeffery Holt, age 45, and
John Mobley, age 43, both
of Paulding.
Holt and Mobley were
taken into custody and each
held on charges of illegal
manufacturing of drugs, a
second degree felony, and il-
legal assembly or posses-
sion of chemicals for the
manufacturing of drugs, a
third degree felony.
Holt and Mobley were to
be arraigned Monday, July
21, in Paulding County
Court.
The Paulding Police
Department and the
Paulding Fire and EMS also
assisted at the scene.
If anyone has information
regarding drug activity or
any other crime, please con-
tact the sheriff’s office at

GROVER HILL – Earlier this week,
Paulding County Sheriff Jason Landers said
that he is a little hesitant so far about moving
ahead with restoring the county jail, not be-
cause he hasn’t had favorable response about
the possibility at “pulse meetings,” but because
of the lack of attendance.
Landers told those attending a meeting at
Grover Hill on Friday that he has had fairly
strong support from those attending a series of
meetings at local fire stations.
“The problem is that the levy that shut down
the jail six years ago was a sound defeat. We
had 3,934 citizens voting against the jail at that
time,” Landers said. “If I have 80 or 90 people
total attend these meetings, it doesn’t tell me
much about the 4,000 out there who voted
against it six years ago.”
The defeated levy was a 2.5-mill current ex-
pense levy for the operation of the jail and other
county expenses at the time.
Landers said that these are different times;
none of the current commissioners were in of-
fice at the time. But he said that he would like
to have a stronger indication of what voters are
thinking before going on with the initiative to
reopen the facility.
The sheriff hosted evening sessions on
Thursday at Auglaize and Crane Township fire
departments and Grover Hill and Scott on
Friday. This week, meetings were at Paulding
and Antwerp on Monday and Oakwood and
Payne on Tuesday.
Landers said at Grover Hill that he is consid-
ering putting an operating levy on the ballot this
November, if there is enough sentiment to war-
rant it. The sheriff said that plans would be for
around a 1-mill operating levy that would gen-
erate a little more than $400,000 a year.
He noted that actual operational costs would
be over a $250,000 increase per year adding
just eight full-time employees, and over
$400,000 if they go back to the staffing level
that was in place in 2008, but there is uncer-
tainty about the future.
“What is the cost of running a jail going to be
in five years?” said Landers at Grover Hill.
“What is the economy going to be at that time?

PAULDING – The old
Barnes Hotel lot may soon be
owned by a private citizen
rather than the Village of
Paulding. At Monday’s meet-
ing, council unanimously
passed Ordinance No. 1483-
14, a legal notice that will be
running in local newspapers
for the next five weeks. The
village will be accepting sealed
bids for the sale of the real es-
tate known as the “Barnes
Hotel” property located at 110
S. Williams St. in Paulding.
Also on Monday, Paulding
Village Council discussed a
persistent water leak, mosquito
spraying and parking in the
new county lot.
The hotel property is to be
sold and conveyed to the high-
est bidder on the following
terms:
• Bids must be in a mini-
mum amount of $8,000.
• The successful bidder and
the Village of Paulding will
each pay one-half of the cost of
replacing the sidewalk in front
of the property on South
Williams Street.
• Ten percent of the pur-
chase price is to be deposited
with the bid by certified check,
and the balance is to be paid to
the finance director of the vil-
lage within 30 days after the
acceptance of the bid by the
council.
• The successful bidder for
the property must agree in
writing, to comply with all or-
dinances of the village that per-
tain to possible uses for said
real estate.
If there are any questions,
please contact village adminis-
trator Harry Wiebe at 419-399-
2806.
There was some discussion
at the meeting regarding the
water main break at the corner
of Williams and Baldwin
streets. This leak was reported
at the end of last winter. The
water line was scheduled to be
repaired on Monday, May 12,
and it is evident, from the birds
bathing in the huge puddle of
water, that the leak still exists.
Wiebe told council that they
have isolated the problem and
identified the valves that need
to be shut off to make the re-
pairs. Wiebe stated that the
contractor has been notified
and is ready to complete the re-
pairs, but at this time, village
employees are involved with
other scheduled tasks. As soon
as time permits, affected resi-
dents will be notified and re-
pairs will be completed.
There was a question about
the use of the parking lot across
the alley from the village of-
fices as signs have been posted
stating “Courthouse Parking
Only.” The village owns a 20-
foot-wide strip of this parking
lot so it was noted by Mayor
Greg White that once this area
is paved, there will be areas
marked for village use.
Wiebe said the village plans
to spray for mosquitos once a
week for the rest of the season.
He said that a few weeks ago,
the village had sprayed twice a
GROVER HILL – A
Grover Hill man was arrested
following a four-hour con-
frontation with law enforce-
ment officers last week near
Grover Hill. A woman es-
caped from the scene without
injury.
According to Sheriff Jason
Landers, at approximately
5:25 p.m. on Thursday, July
17, deputies were dispatched
to 1783 Road 151, Grover
Hill, for a domestic situation.
A female caller, via 911, ad-
vised the communications of-
ficer that her husband, Daniel
L. Nantz, age 56, had a gun
and threatened her, and she
was locked in a room.
The initial deputies on
scene were able to extract the
female from an upstairs win-
dow using a ladder.
A perimeter was established
once the female was out of
harm’s way, and the Paulding
County Sheriff’s Office
Special Response Team was
activated. Additional man-
power and resources were
called in from Van Wert
County Sheriff’s Office as
well as Allen County, Ohio,
Sheriff’s Office, as the scene
was treated as a barricaded
subject with a firearm.
After approximately four
hours of attempting to make
contact with Nantz, he began
area ministerial association
and numerous area residents
who have worked hard to put
together an event-filled
weekend.
Ray and Ona Volk are this
year’s Summerfest Parade
grand marshals. The Volks,
when asked how they feel
about being asked to be pa-
rade marshals, replied, “We
are happy to be included in
the Summerfest activities.
We are proud of all the young
people in our community
who have been working to
improve and preserve
Welcome Park for all future
generations!”
The Volks also commented
that Grover Hill is a great
place to call home, has been a
wonderful place to raise their
family, and living in Grover
Hill is like being part of a
large family. Ray and Ona
have lived in the Grover Hill
area their entire life.

GROVER HILL – The
community of Grover Hill in-
vites the public to join them
for their annual “Grover Hill
Summerfest in the Park.”
Grover Hill Summerfest
2014 is ready to take center
stage as it becomes the place
to be for fun, games, good
music and worship on Friday,
July 25, continuing on
Saturday, July 26 through
Sunday, July 27. This year, a
Major Girls softball tourna-
ment will be part of the
events all three days.
The village of Grover Hill
promises to be a fun place to
be as Welcome Park and the
village will be transformed as
the main stage for the mid-
summer activity. Grover Hill
will be celebrating their an-
nual Summerfest again this
year at the Grover Hill
Welcome Park thanks to a
group of local citizens con-
sisting of the park board,

We can only take a guess right
now.”
The county currently pays a
set rate of $62,500 per quarter
($250,000 annually) to
Putnam County to house our
prisoners in their jail.
Using an “open and honest
approach,” Landers was
straightforward in telling vot-
ers everywhere that housing
inmates in Paulding County
was going to cost more up-
front than sending them to
other facilities. But he also
stressed that money that is
now leaving the county will
also come back to the county.
“There will be 8-12 new
full-time jobs and a host of
part-time jobs needed to re-
open,” said the sheriff. “We
will spend more money here;
they will pay their income tax
here and hopefully live here.
Hopefully all of that econom-
ic impact will offset the addi-
tional cost of operating a jail.
“We are a union shop that
never closes and will have two
contract negotiations within
the next five years. That
makes projections a little more
difficult,” continued Landers.
“I project that if we were to
open the jail, it would take at
least a year to get it open,”
continued the sheriff.
“We would have to train
workers, do inspections, make
sure it’s back up to standards
and look at anything else it
would take to properly open
it,” added Landers. “Some
things may have changed be-
cause of the time that has
elapsed (six years) since the
jail was open.”
In a show of hands at the
close of the meeting, nearly
100 percent of those in atten-
dance indicated support for re-
opening the jail. Landers
noted that in his first meetings
at Auglaize, Crane Township
and Grover Hill, the response
of those attending was over-
whelming in favor of reopen-
ing.
“The commissioners and I
will have a long meeting fol-
lowing these meetings and
will discuss the matter in
length at that time,” said
Landers.

SCOTT – The second an-
nual Picnic in the Park will be
held from 11:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
Saturday, Aug. 2, at Bressler
Park in Scott. After many
years of not playing ball on
the ball field, volunteers got
together and began working
to cosmetically give the ball
diamond, bleachers and the
concession stand a new look.
Games were played at the
ball field this summer and
once again you could hear the
crack of the bats, the calls of
the umpire and the happy
voices of kids and parents en-
joying the thrill of the sport.
The Picnic in the Park will
be a fundraiser for the Scott
Ball Association and the
Scott Fire Department. The
fire department will be selling
chicken dinners beginning at
11:30 a.m. Also on tap that
day will be bingo, silent auc-
tion, door prizes, a magician,
face painting, games, obsta-
cle course, the Bookmobile
and softball games as well as
a wiffle ball game.
Jeremy Akom, one of the
coaches said, “Anyone inter-
ested in playing softball at
our picnic in the park on Aug.
2, can get with Chris
Martinez, head coach, or my-
self. I’d like to see us get
three or four teams together
to play and two of those
teams to consist of parents
and family of our T-ball
teams. So teams, please let
me know if you are willing
and want to play. We may
need to practice by Aug. 2.”
Some former Scott players
from years gone past may
even show up to show off
their skills.
The Scott Ball Association
is also taking orders for T-
shirts online or fill out a print-
ed form. The pre-sale price is

In Grover Hill
Much to offer at Summerfest
By NANCY WHITAKER
Correspondent
At two separate meetings held
Tuesday, July 15, patrons of Latty
and Scott post offices heard the re-
sults of a recent survey.
In April 2013, the U.S. Postal
Service made some cost-cutting
measures to its Melrose, Grover Hill,
Cecil and Haviland locations. Other
post offices remained in jeopardy of
either being closed, hours of opera-
tion trimmed, getting mail boxes, re-
locating the post offices to a business
or residents going to another post of-
fice to get their mail.
Recently, Latty and Scott postal
customers received surveys about the
future of their post offices. Public
meetings were announced at each lo-
cation. The meetings were conducted
by Katrina Poxson, post office oper-
ations manager, and Greg Bays of
the Lima Post Office.
The Latty Post Office meeting,
which was held at noon, was attend-
ed by 12-15 interested residents. In
Latty, 85 surveys were given out
with 42 being returned. The results
were:
• 79 percent wanted to keep the
post office with reduced hours
• 8 percent preferred general de-
livery
• 2 percent wanted it to be located
in some type of business.
The decision was made to reduce
the Latty Post Office hours to two
hours a day and keep regular hours
the same on Saturdays.
Following a 30-day notice, the
new hours at Latty will be 2-4 p.m.
weekdays and 7:30-11:15 a.m.
Saturdays. However, the lobby will
remain open for mail pick-up 24
hours per day, seven days a week.
The Scott Post Office held its
meeting at 2 p.m. July 15 with ap-
proximately 12-15 attendees and the
same postal workers who, in turn,
explained the results of Scott’s sur-
vey.
In the Scott area, 200 surveys were
passed out and 76 were completed.
The results were:
• 90 percent wanted realignment
of hours
• 7 percent preferred delivery op-
tion
• 3 percent made no selection.
Overwhelmingly, Scott residents
wanted to keep their post office in-
tact even with reduced hours.
Following the approximate 30-day
notification period, the Scott Post
Office will be open from noon-4
p.m. weekdays and 9:30 a.m.-1:30
p.m. on Saturdays. Its lobby, too, will
remain open for 24 hours a day,
seven days a week.
The administrative post office for
Paulding County will be Paulding,
and Van Wert will be the administra-
tive office for Van Wert County.
Poxson disclosed in her statement
that within the past decade, those
who pay their bills online, bank on-
line, shop and even send greeting
cards online have increased from ap-
proximately 5 percent to a whopping
51 percent.
She said, “We base these decisions
on closings and hours on post office
usage, customers and especially rev-
enue. Remember to spend your
money and mail your postal deliver-
ies from your own home post office.”
Some post office locations may be
smaller, but have more revenue com-
ing in and therefore have the oppor-
tunity to be open longer hours.
Most postmasters have either
taken an early retirement or could be
offered a lower-paying job than what
they had. Poxson said that the post
offices have positions open for part-
time workers and to check the postal
service website.
One attendee at a meeting stated,
“It seems as if we lose our post office
in our towns, we lose our identity as
a community and as people. When
you order something to be delivered
anymore, you have to have a mailing
address and a billing address. If they
don’t match up, then they won’t de-
liver. That is why it is best we try and
keep our post offices located in our
own towns.”
At least for the time being, the lit-
tle post offices are somewhat safe in
that they will remain open. In the
meantime, expect more surveys and
more budget cutting from the U.S.
Postal Service.

Susan Hill Pieper, Library Director
MAIN STREET AND THE PAYNE
BRANCH LIBRARY
As the second branch of the Paulding County
Carnegie Library system, the Payne Branch
Library opened in 1996 as a direct result of
the discontinuing of State of Ohio bookmobile
service in December 1994. Families still share
the stories of their children and the impact the
Bookmobile had on their lives.
The gift of books being delivered to their
community was priceless. So, when Payne
was faced with losing this access to books,
concerned citizens formed the Friends of the
Payne Branch Library. They worked tirelessly
towards securing a “brick and mortar” branch
for their small town and once a building
was obtained (thanks to a local family who
provided the building for the lifetime of the
branch library) they were able to join the
Paulding County Carnegie Library system.
The main library received no additional
funding from the state when this branch
opened and had to once again tighten the
budget belt so this new library family member
could provide the best possible service to the
residents of Payne.
I love this branch library. If I were to
write a novel about a small town, the public
library would be either nestled in a charming
neighborhood or smack dab on Main Street –
like the Payne Branch Library.
When I hear the trains come through Payne,
my heart futters. I see a train rambling through
small-town America as a romantic dream of
travel and adventure – even though the freight
trains running through Payne are carrying
America’s commerce and farm harvests and
not passengers. Trains are as much a part of the
picture of small town America as the small-
town library.
Located at the intersection of State Routes
49 and 500, the library is like a bookend to
the west side of the main downtown block.
The bright white of the building, accented by
maroon awnings is charming and welcoming.
It is at this small branch library where locals
gather in the morning to read the newspaper
and children hop off their bikes in the summer
eagerly waiting for a new adventure found in
a book or movie.
It is the small town library that provides
access to citizens to information that they may
need to make decisions in their lives, a quality
collection of materials, high-speed computer
access and programs for citizens of all ages –
at no charge.
Small town libraries have often been
referred to as the “heartbeat” of the
community. That is probably because the
library seems alive. There is a rhythm to the
library – a pulse of activity. On most days
you will fnd a variety of ages working on
computers, reading magazines, studying,
perusing the collection, borrowing materials,
returning materials. There is something for
everyone at this branch.
Branch manager Suzi Yenser has been
recently joined by her assistant, library
clerk Laina Gross. These two young women
enthusiastically plan compelling library
programs and activities.
The Friends of the Payne Branch Library
is an active group who provides funding for
the maintenance of the storefront building,
programs and other much appreciated support
for branch activities.
The library is funded by the county library
and is one of three “brick and mortar”
branches. The branch is located at 101 N.
Main St. (corner of Ohio 500 and Ohio 49).
Hours are Monday and Tuesday, noon-7:30
p.m.; Wednesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; and
on Saturdays from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The branch
uses the same library card as all library
locations in the county.
For more information call the Payne Branch
Library at 419-263-3333. See you at the
library, and do not forget to wave at the train!

County Common Pleas Judge
Tiffany Beckman, County
Court Judge Suzanne Rister,
County Prosecutor, Joseph
R. Burkard, and Deputy Rob
Garcia traveled to Columbus
on June 30 to attend the Ohio
Judicial Symposium on Opiate
Addiction. Practices as well
as treatment options were

Of all the counties in Ohio,
Paulding County was among 83
represented at the symposium,
which included lectures from
Ohio Attorney General Mike
DeWine, Governor John R.
Kasich and Ohio Supreme
Court Justice Maureen
O’Connor.
It was noted that unintended
deaths from opiate overdoses
are reaching numbers which
almost double the number of
highway fatalities.
Challenges for addressing
opiate addiction, potential
solutions and treatment plans
supported by community
resources were addressed.
In addition, the practice of
insuring that nonviolent
offenders receive appropriate
interventions and services
in line with their crimes
was a primary focus of the

Jason Landers was the speaker at the recent Kiwanis
meeting He gave a Power Point presentation on what it will
cost to reopen the jail. He is only trying to get the people’s
opinion before putting on the ballot. He said it would bring
back 12 to 15 new jobs to the community and make the total
operation much more effcient by having everything here in the
county. He asked the Kiwanis members how they felt about
his proposal, and if they would support the levy. They voted a
unanimous yes.

Take the politics
and politicians
out of education
By Brian Gerber
Superintendent, Western Buckeye ESC
Educators should drive educational policy, not politicians.
Education in America has been under constant attack since
politicians started to drive educational policy in this country.
Every decision governing education is made with political
agendas in the forefront. How many of these politicians are
putting students above their own political advanced agendas.
I bet the percentage is fairly high.
Instead of politicians playing politics, they really need
to study effective educational models if they truly want to
improve education. You need to study the best in order to
be the best. Wouldn’t that make sense? Instead you have
politicians believing they are the experts in creating models
of excellence. Don’t get me wrong, we have some good
politicians, but the good ones are in the minority. The good
ones aren’t legends in their own minds. They actually care
about students and high quality education.
One of the most highly effective educational systems in the
world is in Finland. Wouldn’t you think if politicians wanted
to improve education, they would study Finland’s model
a little bit. In Finland, a culture of reading exists in which
parents begin developing the skill in their children at a very
young age and preschool programs emphasize socialization,
the development of interpersonal skills, social responsibility,
play, and reading. In the United States, schools are held
solely responsible for a child’s academic progress. Schools
are being judged by standardized tests given during one week
of the school year. One snap shot in one week is supposed to
determine the students’ academic progress. That is complete
foolishness! That’s like saying you are going to judge the
success of a football team during one week of the season. If
they win during that one week, then the season is a success.
If they lose during that week, then the season is a failure.
What about the other nine weeks of the season? Do they
count? Passing judgment on schools, students, and teachers
during one week of standardized testing is ridiculous. Let’s
make sure we get all this information in the newspapers so
the public can see if we were losers or winners.
In Finland, standardized tests are nonexistent, schools are
not ranked or rated in any way, and the idea of evaluating
teachers based on student test scores would be viewed as
ludicrous. In America, students are tested to death in the
name of school accountability. Policy-makers are developing
new ways to rank schools all the time, and state law has
been passed which mandates that teachers will be evaluated
and paid with an eye towards student performance on a
standardized tests. If a football team goes 9-1 and the coach
is evaluated during the week of the only loss of the year, are
we going to say he and the team is a failure? Absolutely not!
Success and growth should be evaluated over the course of
an entire season, not just one game or one week. Students
should not be pigeon holed into one week of standardized
testing that will determine their labeling as a success or
failure.
In Finland, educators drive educational policy. Charter
schools are nonexistent because they are viewed as
ineffective. In the United States, nearly all educational
decisions are made by politicians. Educators are invited to
participate only after policies have failed. They want the
input of educators to fx the problem that was created by the
unqualifed. People in the United States who were educated
prior to the days of politicians taking over our educational
system, turned out to be highly intelligent and productive
citizens. We just need to put some common sense back into
education and let the people who live it and breathe it on
a daily basis have some input on educational policy. This
would be in the best interest of our schools and students.

Sheriff’s Report
In My Opinion
The Word “Caring”
Caring what others think of us is just one aspect of the
word “CARING.” The Bible teaches us to love our neighbor
as ourselves and to care about each other. Did you know the
focks of birds in the air care about each other?
The other morning when walking back from the post
offce, I saw two birds at the side of the road. One bird wasn’t
moving and so I assumed it was deceased. The other little bird
looked like it was tending to the dead one attempting to give
it “beak to beak.” As I stood there and watched the one little
bird took the dead one and began to carry it, moving it with
his beak. He had the main street to cross with tractors and
cars coming, but he made
it safely to the other side.
I was amazed to see how
those animals cared about
their own and how tenderly
he moved and probably
grieved over his unfortunate
feathered friend.
Another form of the word
caring is caring what other
people think of us. We try and please our parents, teachers,
preachers, others in our classroom or workplace, on the sports
feld, and in college. We all care about how others perceive
us.
In fact, what others think of us permeates every facet of our
being and we typically are not even aware of it. Caring about
what others think infltrates the ordinary, everyday aspects
of our lives. For instance, if you see your minister coming
towards you, would you be careful about your vocabulary?
Yes, we all tend to get embarrassed if we fall down or drop
a plate of food, we look around and think, “OOPS. I wonder
who saw me do that?”
Now, sometimes, I believe that the more we age, the less
we care about anyone else’s opinion of us. I like glittery shiny
clothes, jewelry, boots, tight jeans and blonde hair. Yes, I am
sure people say, “She is too old to dress like that.” But you
know, the older I get the less it matters.
While seeking approval from others may be inevitable,
problems may arise depending on how far one goes. When
caring how other people perceive us interferes with our own
caring of others, that’s when we may need to simply follow
our heart and do what we feel is right. If you fnd yourself
biting your lip from saying a quirky comment out of fear that
others will raise their eyebrows in judgment, maybe that’s a
time to try to just be yourself.
Like the bird who was going to take care of his dead friend,
he could have cared less that he might get hit by a car or what
anyone or any other bird thought of him. I know it taught
me a lesson about caring. If the birds and animals can care
about their own, we as humans should also. We should just be
ourselves the way God created us. Caring about what others
think of us and caring about each other are just two parts of
the word Caring.

In My
Opinion
Nancy
Whitaker
Jason Landers was the speaker at the recent Kiwanis
meeting He gave a Power Point presentation on what it will
cost to reopen the jail. He is only trying to get the people’s
opinion before putting on the ballot. He said it would bring
back 12 to 15 new jobs to the community and make the total
operation much more effcient by having everything here in the
county. He asked the Kiwanis members how they felt about
his proposal, and if they would support the levy. They voted a
unanimous yes.

Poison hemlock or wild carrot?
By Mark Holtsberry
Education specialist
Paulding SWCD
This invasive weed is
a member of the carrot
family, so it shares many
characteristics with other
weeds found in Ohio
including native wild carrot,
also called Queen Anne’s
lace. The hemlock has a
biennial (two year) life cycle.
Poison hemlock may be
distinguished from wild
carrot fowers by looking at
the stem. Poison hemlock has
purple spots or blotches an no
hairs along the fower stem.
Wild carrot has blotches and
is usually covered with hairs.
All growth stages of poison
hemlock have bluish-green
leaves that are fern like and
wild carrot has more rounded
that sharp pointed leaves.
Poison hemlock is a highly
visible plant reaching five
to seven feet tall this time of
year. The favored location is
along streams, ditches and
old barn lots although it can
be found about anywhere.
There is an odor to the plant
that is sometimes described
as “mousy”, which is like
finding a mouse nest and
the odor that follows. Also,
clusters of tiny white fowers
are borne on structures called
umbels (look like upside-
down umbrellas) on the upper
part of the fowering stalks.
Flowering season will last
from now through August.
True to its name, the plant
is moderately to highly
poisonous to cattle, horses,
swine and sheep. The most
toxic parts of the plant are
roots and seed. Affected
animals show signs within
hours of eating it. Most
animals do not eat it other
than nibbling on the leaves.
To create a toxic condition
requires cattle to eat one or
two pounds of the material.
The risk to animals should
be minimal unless they have
nothing else to eat. Symptoms
i ncl ude ner vousness,
trembling, incoordination and
death in some cases. Pregnant
cows that graze poison
hemlock may experience
birth defects in their calves
such as cleft palate and spinal
abnormalities. The critical
time in the pregnancy for
cattle is 40 through 70 days.
Poison hemlock is also
toxic to people who touch the
plant. Care should be used if
removing by hand as some
individuals have reported
becoming sick after working
in and around it. Poison
hemlock spreads by seed,
which may be distributed by
birds and rodents. It is best
to control while in the rosette
stage, particularly in the fall.
However, control at this time
of year will prevent additional
seed production.
Control or eradication can
include mowing and tilling.
Mowing should be done in the
bloom stage. Using selective
herbicides (2,4 D), dicamba,
crossbow or non-selective
herbicides such as glyphosate
(Roundup) Glyphosate
appears to work the best. It
can be eradicated by applying
any of these herbicides early
in the year. Every effort
should be made to minimize
seed production. Another
recommended control is to
use Remedy Ultra, Tordon
22k or Grazon P+D before
poison hemlock bolts in the
early spring. It may also
control it in the fall in the
rosette stage. I have seen and
also mowed hemlock at the
Nature Center, so be aware of
what you are touching. Have
a safe and wonderful walk
this summer.

JIM LANGHAM
Child’s passing leaves caregiving
mother with a broken heart
Several weeks ago I wrote
a column about a special
situation a few miles away in
Decatur, Indiana. It involved
a mother who purposely
adopted a little girl with
cancer in order to give tender
love and care to her during
her time of illness.
That was four years ago;
Beth Ann Fawcett took little
Ebony into her arms and
cared for her as an “angel-
mother” during the duration
of her fight with cancer.
During that time, Beth Ann
lost her job and made major
sacrifces on behalf of Ebony,
who just celebrated her ninth
birthday. But none of that
meant anything compared
to the heart full of love she
poured out on her little girl.
On July 8, at 1:08 p.m.,
Beth Ann’s arms were
emptied of her bundle of joy
when her daughter and best
friend passed in her presence
in Decatur. Since then, it has
not only been Beth Ann who
has grieved the loss of Ebony,
an entire community and
surrounding area who knew
this special bond has mourned
the loss of Ebony and sought
to bring comfort to a mother’s
broken heart.
But not only did Beth Ann
lose the companionship of
her precious daughter, as a
caregiver, she also lost the
object of her greatest love
and the daily acceptance of
serving God as the girl’s
caregiver.
At the moment of Ebony’s
passing, Beth Ann penned in
her journal, “A golden heart
stopped beating, your tender
hands at rest, God took you
home to prove to us He only
takes the best. Ebony Ann,
you will forever be in my
heart, Mommy loves you,
Ebony Ann! You will forever
be in my heart; Ebony Ann
went to Jesus’ loving arms at
1:08 today (July 8, 2014).”
While my heart goes out to
this broken-hearted mother,
this entire episode gives me an
even deeper appreciation for
caregivers everywhere. True,
there is exasperation and
fatigue that goes with such a
role, but my heart reaches to
the love and courage to risk a
loving heart on behalf of the
one being taken care of.
As I sit and type this
column, I am aware that there
are hundreds of caregivers
within a radius of me that
are worn out, but still trying
to think of one more thing
to bring comfort and peace
to those that they are caring
for. My suggestion is that at
the moment this is being read,
the reader takes fve minutes
to meditate or pray on behalf
of caregivers everywhere.
What made Ebony’s story
even more touching was
her courageous approach.
In spite of her extreme pain,
she was determined to keep
going. Early this spring, her
community had a beneft and
birthday party for her on her
ninth birthday. On Memorial
Day, she insisted on attending
the dedication of a Veteran’s
Wall in honor of those who
had served our country.
Most recently, just three
weeks ago, she insisted on
being transported around the
track during the “Survivor’s
Lap” of her local Relay for
Life. Ten days later she
passed.
It’s no wonder that her
mother expressed this past
Sunday that “I am completely
lost without my beautiful
daughter, Ebony Ann, needing
her hugs and kisses today
more than ever.”
And now for that five
minutes of silence, on behalf
of Ebony’s beautiful mother,
and all of those who are
currently in caregiving roles
in the area.

Thirteen counties were selected in Ohio and the grant runs
through May 2015.
A public meeting July 31 in Hicksville will provide an opportunity for those who live, work and
play in the Upper Maumee Valley to gain a better understanding of their watershed.
Public invited to learn more
about Maumee watershed plan
HICKSVILLE – Are you interested in
learning about the new watershed management
plan that has been developed for the Upper
Maumee River Watershed? Interested in
touring the Huber Opera House? Here is an
opportunity to do both.
On July 31, the Upper Maumee Watershed
Partnership along with the Defance and Allen
County Soil and Water Conservation Districts
are excited to extend an invitation to the public
to join us for an in-depth look at the new Upper
Maumee River Watershed Management Plan.
The event will be at the Huber Opera House,
157 E. High St., Hicksville
The free public meeting begins at 7 pm.
Optional Huber Opera House tour (free)
begins at 6:30 p.m. Tour the facility then join
the public meeting. Refreshments provided.
Several years ago, the partners involved
with this project recognized the growing
concern of high nutrient and sediment levels
entering Lake Erie through the Maumee River
causing massive algal blooms and flling the
Toledo harbor with sediment. Therefore,
the Allen County, Indiana and Defiance
County, Ohio Soil and Water Conservation
Districts applied for and were awarded
Clean Water Act 319 grants from the Indiana
Department of Environmental Management
and the Ohio Environmental Protection
Agency, respectively, to create a Watershed
Management Plan for the Upper Maumee
River Watershed.
The purpose of the management plan is to
identify areas of concern in the watershed
and develop an action register, guided by
local stakeholders, to reduce the amount
of pollution entering the river system, and
improve overall water quality and the quality
of life for those that live around and rely on
the river.
The July 31 public meeting provides
an opportunity for those who live, work
and play in the watershed to gain a better
understanding of their watershed, the role
they play in protecting water quality and the
role of federal, state and local governmental
agencies.
For any questions about the event, please
contact the Allen County Soil and Water
Conservation District at 260-484-5848 Ext.
3 and ask for Sharon Partridge, watershed
program manager or, the Defance County
Soil and Water Conservation District at 419-
782-8751 Ext. 3 and ask for Stephanie Singer,
watershed program manager.

In The
Garden
Kylee Baumle/Paulding County Progress
Ohio native wildfower Virginia bluebells (Mertensia virginica) begins deep purple, opening
later in pink, then true blue.
Getting up close and personal in the garden
With the gardening season
in full swing, I’m not the only
thing that gets a workout in
the garden; my camera is
right there with me. I’ve
always enjoyed photography,
and when I began gardening
with gusto, a whole new
world opened up to me with
endless subject matter.
There weren’t just fowers
to capture, but also birds,
butterfies, and other insects.
I’m often asked about my
camera and while having a
decent one helps, you don’t
have to spend a fortune to be
able to capture the beauty in
your gardens.
I’m a huge fan of macro
photography, especially fond
of capturing the details of
fower blooms. I visited our
local botanical conservatory a
few years ago when they had
an orchid display, and I was
blown away by the intricacies
of the tiniest blooms – so tiny
that you nearly needed to use
a magnifying glass to really
see the details.
That’s where the macro
setting on my camera is
invaluable. Just as I’ve used
my 50x optical zoom in a
binocular capacity, I’ve used
my macro setting to bring
tiny details closer. Most
cameras have a macro setting,
indicated by the flower
symbol, which allows me to
get very close to my subject
to record those interesting
details.
I’ve been asked for tips on
taking pictures in the garden,
so here are some tips for
adding more interest to the
photographs you take in your
own garden or those you visit:
• Beyond the technical
aspects of macro photography
is the choice of subject. The
bloom, right? Sure, but try
looking at it from different
angles – top, side, underneath.
• Pay attention to what
else is in the photo. You can
be so mentally focused on
the subject that you fail to
observe what else shows up
in the background. Though it
will likely be blurred because
of the limited depth of feld,
the color or shapes may be
distracting. Move around
until you get a pleasing
background.
• Photograph parts of a
plant other than the bloom
or capture it in different
stages of fowering. One of
my favorite macro shots is
of Virginia bluebells before
they’ve opened up.
• Instead of using the
macro setting to capture the
details of the fower, leave the
camera in its normal setting,
move away and use your
zoom to come in close to your
subject. You can get a macro
effect this way, too.
• Trying to capture a bee
or other insects as it visits
a bloom? Patience has its
rewards. Rather than chasing
the bee, observe its habit and
then focus on a fower and
wait for it to fy into the frame.
• Most digital cameras
have a preview feature,
which allows you to focus
on a specific element of
your scene by depressing
the shutter about halfway.
I use this feature nearly
always when composing and
capturing an image. Every
camera has a focal point on
the screen which the camera
uses to read a scene for proper
exposure and focusing. You
can make sure the main
subject of your photo is in
focus and properly exposed
by frst aiming the camera
so that its focal point is on
your subject, then depressing
the shutter halfway. Hold it
down to maintain that focus
and then frame your scene
before depressing the shutter
release all the way. Sure, this
takes practice but you’ll be
surprised at how quickly it
becomes second nature.
• Some cameras have a
“burst” feature. This can
be useful when trying to
photograph insects and birds.
With this setting engaged,
you can hold down the shutter
release button and the camera
will shoot continuously. The
result is a good number of
photographs and the more
you have, the better chance
that one of them will be good.
And that brings me to a fnal
word of advice – take a LOT
of photos. For a typical macro
shot, I’ll take a minimum of
about ten photos and many
times more. It’s really hard to
tell whether or not your photo
is acceptable and in sharp
focus on the small review
screen on your camera. When
you bring those images up
on your computer, you’ll see
many things you didn’t at the
time you took the photo. The
beauty of digital photography
is that your only limit is the
size of your memory card.

Commissioners’ Journal July 2, 2014
This 2nd day of July, 2014, the
Board of County Commissioners met
in regular session with the following
members present: Tony Zartman, Roy
Klopfenstein, Fred Pieper, and Nola
Ginter, Clerk.
MEETING NOTES OF
APPOINTMENTS
Deb Atchley met with the
commissioners to discuss use of the
river trail on county property north
of U.S. 24. She is aware of the recent
signage posting admittance by written
permission only.
The commissioners explained the
reason for the signage is to hopefully
eliminate the county’s liability should
an accident occur. Also, by posting
the signage, the sheriff’s deputies
may ticket any offenders.
The tenant farming the ground
recently reported the access roads
have been abused from unauthorized
vehicles being on them when it is too
wet, causing ruts and other damage
to crop area when they veer off the
roadway and into the feld.
Atchley noted she and her husband
enjoy riding their four-wheeler and
picnicking along the trails beside the
river. She admitted the access roads
have been abused; but, stated once
you get to the river trail, it has been
well taken care of by those who use it.
She reported several horse groups that
enjoy riding along the river.
The commissioners agreed it is a
shame to close the trail to those who
enjoy and take care of it. However,
there seems to be no other alternative
to attempt to keep the abusers off
the property. The commissioners
will follow up with the prosecuting
attorney to learn what their options are.
Atchley understood their position; but
said it is too bad that a few people spoil
it for everyone else.
Jim Guelde met with the
commissioners to review his proposal
for landscaping and improving the
courthouse lawn. The commissioners
agreed to accept his landscape cost
and labor cost of landscaping (see
resolution below).
The commissioners requested a
breakdown of the services included
in the annual maintenance labor cost
quote. Guelde agreed to provide a
breakdown.
EXECUTIVE SESSION
A motion was made by
Klopfenstein to go into executive
session at 8:10 a.m. with the Paulding
County Prosecutor to discuss legal
matters. The motion was seconded
by Pieper. All members voting yea.
At 8:40 a.m. all members present
agreed to adjourn the executive
session and go into regular session.
IN THE MATTER OF ENTERING
INTO AN AGREEMENT FOR
LANDSCAPING AND LAWN
IMPROVEMENT SERVICES
FOR THE COURTHOUSE
SQUARE

Door-to-door handymen
bring concern at Antwerp
By JOE SHOUSE
Progress Staff Writer
ANTWERP – The Antwerp Village Council
met briefy Monday evening. Two resolutions
unanimously passed and Police Chief George
Clemens sent out a warning concerning door-
to-door handymen.
Clemens reminded council that during
the summer months there is a higher level
of crime even in a small community like
Antwerp. Recently, there has been an infux
of “so-called” handymen combing the area
promising to do work and then taking people’s
money.
Clemens said he would like to see the
council take action in developing procedure
that would force door-to-door contractors to
get a permit through the police department.
“If we had something on the books that
would force people to come to the station and
get a permit, we could a background check
and make sure they are legitimate,” said the
chief.
The council agreed that something needed
to be done in order to protect the citizens.
In the future they hope to have something
in place to help curb some of the problems
people are encountering.
Right now, Clemens encourages people to
call his offce if someone stops by who seems
to be suspicious, and have them checked out.
A 1-mill renewal levy that would give the
village $18,042 annually unanimously was
approved for placement on the fall election
ballot. The purpose of the levy is to provide
street lighting in the downtown area of
Antwerp.
A new resolution passed that would place
on the ballot a 2.63-mill levy that would allow
the village to purchase a new fre truck and
additional fre equipment. The levy would
generate $50,000 each year for the next fve
years.
Village administrator Sara Keeran, who has
been away from her job for a month due to
health issues, is back on the job. In her report,
Keeran said letters have been sent out to people
who have tall grass, garbage issues and junk
vehicles on their property.
“It appears when people receive the notice
in the mail to clean something up, they usually
respond and do a pretty good job,” said Keeran.
The administrator also shared with council
that National Signal Company would be
installing new signals and bells at the railroad
crossing on Main Street in the next couple of
weeks.
Keeran told council she had received word
from the Paulding County United Way that a
Week of Caring will take place in September
and that Antwerp is on the list as being one of
the villages that will get a clean-up downtown
as a part of the week of caring campaign.
Restrooms at the city park have been painted
and since the security measures have been
made in the park, there has been no vandalism.

room facility is now the new
wrestling practice facility.
New and larger lockers have
been installed for the athletes.
In the gym area, painting
continues during the summer
months.
In looking to the future,
the board is in the process of
discussing and considering
new press boxes for both
the softball and baseball
facilities. The new press
boxes would serve a dual
purpose with one being a
storage area and the other a
concession stand.
Arnold will continue to
seek additional information
about the new structures in
hopes of having approval at
the next board meeting.
Details of the newly passed
drug screening policy are
taking place. The draw the
