Early harvest projections are for

slightly cooler and wetter weather

Feature writer
The first glimpse for harvest weather this fall is looking slightly cooler
and a little wetter than normal, says
weather specialist Rick McCoy of
Van Wert. McCoy said that while we
are still several weeks away from harvest, there are no indicators that the
trend prevalent through the summer is
going to change drastically.
There is some indication that
things could warm up, at least briefly,
for the last part of August, said
The extended forecast into that period is calling for slightly above nor-

mal warming in the Midwest but still

precipitation a little over normal.
With temperatures running three
to five degrees below normal in July,
the summer is more than likely going
to end up slightly below normal
which is what the National Weather
Service had predicted early in the
spring, said McCoy.
This past Monday, a major burst of
precipitation moved through the
county, dumping one to two inches of
rain in many areas, with the heaviest
precipitation early on falling in the
northern parts of the county.
That was good, said Ohio State
University extension agent Sarah

Noggle, since that area had been a little drier than areas to the south.
The condition of county crops is
all over the board right now, although
most are looking good or improving,
commented Noggle.
Everyone seems to be picking up
on the possibility of some wetness
during harvest.
We need to look at the economics
of our crop this year, continued
As for Mondays rain, its good
where it fell. That end of the county
needed it. The consistent moisture
that weve been receiving will help
with the gooseneck and lodging prob-

lems that we had talked about a couple of weeks ago.

In spite of the anticipation of cooler
weather during harvest, McCoy said
the freeze risk for the first freeze
looks like about normal as wetter soils
will keep night time lows up some.
McCoy noted that while many people believe that hot nights contribute
to better corn, it appears that just the
opposite could be true. He said that
information he recently received
states that corn actually has better
yields in moderate temperatures, as
long as there is sufficient moisture.

food, good fellowship and
great ice cream are all on
the menu at St. John
Lutheran Church in Briceton (7611 Road 87) this
Saturday evening, Aug. 23.
Members of St. John are
pleased to offer their famous homemade ice cream,
sandwiches, and lots of
homemade pie once again
from 4:30-7 p.m. Come for
the food, stay for the conversation. Meet old friends
and make some new ones.
This is your last chance this
summer to get a taste of
summer at St. John.

County Hospital announced
Friday, Aug. 15 that it is reducing a number of staff positions to offset losses resulting from lower utilization of
services and due to reductions in reimbursement.
Seven positions will be
eliminated while two positions will be reduced in
hours. Included in the reduction are two management positions.
High-deductible insurance
plans require that patients
pay more money out of their
own pockets, thereby causing many to choose not to
utilize healthcare services.
Insurance plans have put
tighter controls on covered
services which in turn limit
patients access to care.
Medicare, one of the hospitals primary payors, has
reduced payments below the
actual cost of providing services. Reduced utilization
combined with reduced reimbursement mandate that
the hospital immediately reduce overhead cost to focus
resources on the delivery of
high quality healthcare.

ANTWERP Seeking funding for a waterline, concerns about manure dumping near the
village and recognition to the fire and EMS department were all discussed at Monday nights
Antwerp Village Council meeting.
A resolution was passed as an emergency
authorizing the village to apply to the Ohio
Public Works Commission (OPWC) for funds
to make capital improvements to the West
Woodcox Street waterline.
The waterline is in need of replacement after
being repaired several times during and following the harsh weather this past winter. The
waterline would run from Main Street (Ohio
49) to Madison Street. The waterline would
service the Manor House and its residents as
well as several homes along Woodcox.
New funding through OPWC, if granted, is
a 50/50 grant with no interest over a 20-year
period. The total cost is estimated at $171,313;
the village would be responsible for
$85,656.50, which would require a $4,282.82
annual payment. The grant application is to be
submitted by Sept. 4 to the county engineer.

An ordinance was passed following its third

reading allowing the mayor to enter into a
lease agreement with Mike Wiesehan, who
was the highest bidder for the village-owned
22.4 acres of tillable farm ground in Carryall
Township. The real estate is to be used for
agricultural purposes only for a five-year period beginning Jan. 15, 2015.
It was the concern of the council that the
acreage be used for such purposes and not to
be used as a manure dump. Council will be addressing such concerns to Wiesehan by way of
Police Chief George Clemens reported that
for the month of July, his department answered
175 calls for service and 39 offenses were sent
to Mayors Court.
Clemens also said, I want to mention how
the fire and EMS responded to the recent fire
at the Oasis. When I arrived they were there,
doing what they do best and they did a fantastic job. Without their quick response, the building and possibly additional structures on that
block would have been lost.

McCoy said that recent

testing indicates that with
high night temperatures, more
of the sugars produced by
photosynthesis during the day
is lost; less is available to fill
developing kernels, thus lowering the yield.
One of the most common
questions I am already being
asked is, what kind of winter
do you think were going to
have this year, said McCoy.
McCoy said that he daily
Weather Service officials at
Syracuse, Ind. and the consensus continues to be the
same. If there is development
of an El Nino, this winter
could be quite different than
last year. If there is no El
Nino, the pattern is still quite
similar to last winter.
Early this spring, it looked
like an El Nino was trying to
form in the Pacific, but it has
never really gotten its act together so far, McCoy said.
If there is an El Nino, our
winters tend to be a little
warmer and wetter, said
McCoy. A lot of the main
storms tend to go south of us,
so things around here are usually less stormy.

The Amish Cook

By Gloria Yoder

Last weekend we had

the opportunity to host my
husband Daniels parents and
siblings from Danville, Ohio.
We always enjoy spending
time together but this was
an extra treat since we had
not seen them for quite some
While they were here
Daniels brother John, who
also lives in this community,
discovered they have corn that
is ready to be harvested. So
we rolled up our sleeves and
worked together. Many hands
certainly made the work light.
Before long the task was
completed with over 40 quarts
of corn in the freezer.
Our two year-old daughter
Julia loved all the action.
Playing with her little cousins
is always a highlight for her.
All too soon it was time for
everyone to go back home
again. Thankfully, we are
blessed with good memories
that are tucked away in safe
And speaking of memories,
perhaps it would be interesting
for you to join me in looking
back over the past years to
take a peek at Daniels and
my life during our growing up
On Aug. 28, 1988, Lydia
Yoder beamed down at her
newborn son. What a miracle
and a gift from God! Daniels
mother proved to have an
exceptional mothers heart
filled with love and dedication.
It was soon obvious that he
would have his daddys curls,
with Daniels being a bit
lighter a golden brown. His
parents, Ephraim and Lydia,
diligently taught their children
the ways of the Lord and were
an example of prayer and
dedication to God.
With six brothers and
one sister, life on a dairy

farm didnt get boring. At

seven years old Daniel was
responsible to help with
his part of milking cows by
hand. Eventually the farm
was replaced with a pallet
shop. He and the Yoder
brothers pitched in once, more
determined to help Dad make
a go of the business. They
put their heart in it working
swiftly and steadily.
Tobias, Daniels oldest
brother, owned a landscaping
business. After his younger
brothers were old enough to
replace him at the pallet shop
he had the opportunity of
helping Tobias with building
retaining walls, patios, and
other landscaping. That was
something he always enjoyed
Meanwhile, 50 miles away,
and a little over a year after
Daniels birth, David and
Dorcas Raber had a newborn
daughter. Baby Gloria was
born on Nov. 12, 1989.
Our parents also did an
outstanding job in caring for
their children and teaching us
about God and His Word.
Javin, my big brother
and hero, was almost a year
older than me. Even though
he was a boy and I a girl we
spent hours together playing.
I became more involved in
playing outside with him, and
he even joined me in playing
with dolls! Catching minnows
and wading at a nearby creek
was one of our favorite
At 6 years old I enjoyed the
adventure of moving to Flat
Rock, Ill. I knew all would
be well as long as my parents
and three brothers were with
me. Upon arriving at our new
home, items were unloaded
including a cage with our
beloved pet. I cant even
remember now whether it was

a dog or a cat. Back then it

certainly was very important
to us. The cage door was
opened and it slipped out and
dashed for the nearby woods.
Javin and I were devastated,
convinced it was gone for
good. Dad tried to reassure
us, telling us that itll come
back. Of course what he said
was true. Arent dads always
The rest of my growing
up years were spent here in
Illinois while Daniels family
lived in Ohio. The question
keeps coming up: so where did
you meet each other? Good
question, how about saving
that answer for next week?
This week Ill include an
old standby recipe that my
mother used quite a bit during
my years at home. When we
didnt know what else to make
we could always settle on
Stuff. Even though it is not
listed, imagination is perhaps
the number one ingredient
in this recipe. Add or omit
vegetables according to your
taste. Sour cream or a soup
may be used to replace gravy
if desired. Vegetables may be
sliced or diced. We usually
make this with venison but
you can use any of kind of
meat you wish.
Brown 1-1/2 pounds of
hamburger, sausage or
Cheese and or gravy
In a large skillet brown the
hamburger. Layer raw veggies
on top of meat. Sprinkle with
salt and pepper. Spread gravy
or cheese over the top. Cover
and simmer on low until
veggies are tender.

Landers, Ruiz take autism

story to bus in-service day
Feature writer
VAN WERT This past
Friday, Paulding County
Sheriff Jason Landers
and Cathy Ruiz, service
coordinator for Paulding
County Family and Children
First Council, were invited to
present autism safety training
to a bus driver in-service
day at Vantage Vocational
The title of the training
session presented by Landers
and Ruiz was Autism 101:
Characteristics, Behaviors
and Simple Strategies Useful
for Bus Drivers.
Landers told a large group
of area bus drivers that it
is important that public
figures such as bus drivers
know how to recognize and
respond to individuals with
special needs such as autism.
We deal with people
with autism every day,
said Landers. It could be
that EMS folks come into
your home and one of your
family members is autistic. It
is important that they know
that in working with the ill
person they are dealing with.
We come into that home
and provide aid for a person
that is down. Under some
situations that might not sit
well with a person who is
in that home, Landers told
those at the seminar. It is
helpful to know that we are
dealing with that situation

before we go in.
Landers said that in many
situations, it is important for
public workers to recognize
characteristics and signs of
special needs individuals.
Sometimes we need to
change ways we approach
individuals so that we
can make them more
comfortable, said Landers.
Someone might be in a
bus stop who doesnt seem
like as typical person,
continued Landers. You
might ask them who they
are and they might not
respond. You might become
concerned about letting
your kids off. If that person
happens to be autistic, it will
help you to understand how

Purple Loosestrife
invades wetlands
By Mark Holtsberry
Education specialist
Paulding SWCD
A plant of European
origin has spread and
degraded North American
wetlands since the early
nineteenth century. The
plant was introduced
both as a contaminant of
European ship ballast and as
medicinal herb for treatment
of diarrhea, dysentery,
bleeding, wounds, ulcers and
This wetland perennial
grows in a wide range
of habitats. Established
plants can reach heights
of six feet tall with 30-50
stems forming wide topped
crowns that dominate the
canopy. One mature plant
can produce more than two
million seeds annually.
Seeds are easily dispersed
by water and in mud adhered
to aquatic wildlife, livestock
and people. A successful
germination depends on the
temperature. Also, moist
soils are required to achieve
By the 1830s, purple
loosestrife was well
established along the New
England seaboard. The
construction of inland canals
and waterways in the 1880s
helped spread and expand
the territory of purple
loosestrife. As of 1996 only
Florida has not been invaded.

Even Canada now has

claimed purple loosestrife as
a permanent resident.
What happens in a wetland
where purple loosestrife is
located? It can result in the
suppression of the resident
plant community and the
eventual alteration of the
wetlands structure and
function. It can jeopardize
various threatened and
endangered native wetland
plants and wildlife by
eliminating natural foods
and cover. Dense plant
establishments in irrigation
systems has impeded the
flow of water. No effective
method is available to
control purple loosestrife,
except if it is localized.
Uprooting by hand, mowing
or cutting down, burning
or herbicide application,
these control methods are
costly and require continued
long term maintenance and,
in the case of herbicides,
are non selective and
environmentally degrading.
I notice a lot of purple
loosestrife in the county, but
amazingly it is in peoples
yards. In flower beds along
a white picket fence or side
of a house. One gentleman
told me, Thats ditch weed
and I think its pretty. My
father planted that more that
30 years ago. I guess this
flowering weed is not just a
ditch or wetland thing.

to deal with the situation.
Landers said if such
an individual seems
noncompliant, there is a
whole different approach
that must be considered if the
person is autistic.
People who are autistic
have a difficult time
understanding and using
language, relating to people,
events and objects in the
environment and dealing
with sensory stimuli such
as pain, hearing, smell and
taste, Ruiz said. She noted
that they also bear the
characteristics of repetitive
They may be nonverbal,
have limited speech and
difficulty expressing needs
and if verbal, repeats
verbatim words and phrases
of others (echolalia), talk
to themselves or no one in
particular, have trouble with
correct volume or intonation,
avoidance of eye contact and
flee from officials or violate
others personal space, said
Ruiz noted that autistic
individuals may also become
quickly upset with changes
in routine, lack fear of real
danger, are unable to report
pain, avoid or be highly
sensitive to touch and have
sustained, repetitive actions
such as rocking back and
characteristics include
covering their ears or eyes
and looking away, displaying
clumsiness, toe-walking or
having difficulty running,
displaying fascination with
and attracted to reflections
and shiny objects, noted

estimated 10,000 lives would
be spared each year if drunk
driving was eliminated
nationwide, according to the
National Highway Traffic
(NHTSA). The Ohio State
Highway Patrol will join
other Ohio law enforcement
agencies and thousands of
highway safety partners
throughout the nation to take
part in the Drive Sober or Get
Pulled Over crackdown on
impaired driving.
The enforcement effort
began Friday, Aug. 15 and
will last through Labor Day.
During the enforcement
period, more than 99 law
enforcement partners have
planned more than 8,400
enforcement hours.
Impaired driving is a
serious matter, and the
Patrol takes a no-excuses
approach to addressing it,
said Colonel Paul A. Pride,
Patrol superintendent. Law
enforcement will be out in full
force to remove dangerous
drivers from Ohios roadways
so you and your family can
arrive home safely.
In 2013, 341 people died in
309 OVI-related crashes on
Ohios roads. Impaired drivers
were involved in 34 percent of
all fatal traffic crashes.
We need your commitment
to keeping Ohio roadways
safe, said Ohio Department
of Public Safety Director
John Born. When you make
responsible decisions like
designating a sober driver or
insisting that all passengers in
your vehicle buckle up, you
contribute to a safer Ohio.

RESEARCH The producer of Cold Justice called the library
on Aug. 1requesting immediate help with research for their
upcomingprogram on an unsolved murder case. Paulding
County Carnegie Library team member, Sue Deatrick, was
able to conduct research andFAX the requested information
to the producer. The research called for a bit of digging as the
information was not readily available, but the librarys welltrained library clerk was able to get the job done. Just another
day at the library where we never know who will be on the other
end of the phone when it rings, orwhat type of information they
will need. The library has been providing answers since 1916
for the residents of Paulding County.

PCCL receives fraud ed

toolkits from AGs office

Ohio Attorney General

Mike DeWine announced
last week that his office has
sent Senior Advocate Fraud
Education (SAFE) toolkits to
more than 700 Ohio libraries.
Paulding County Carnegie
Library system was among
those to receive the kits.
We received the kit today
(Aug. 15), said Susan Pieper,
PCCL director. It is being
processed. Two copies will
be available for loan at the
main library and one copy is
being processed for reference
and in house use at the main
Patrons at branches may
request a copy be sent to them
for pickup at the branch. The
library has branch libraries
in the villages of Antwerp,
Oakwood and Payne; and
bookmobile stops in Mandale,
Melrose, Grover Hill, Latty,

Scott, Haviland, Broughton,

Briceton, Junction, and
The project is funded
through a grant obtained
by the Attorney Generals
Consumer Protection Section.
Nearly every day in
Ohio, someone falls victim
to a scam, Attorney
General DeWine said. We
know that prevention and
awareness are critical. These
toolkits are designed to help
communities recognize the
warning signs and find the
resources they need to detect
and avoid scams.
The SAFE Toolkit was
developed with support
from the Sears Consumer
Protection and Education
Fund. Approximately 730
main and branch libraries
throughout the state were
recipients of three toolkits

each as well as a poster to

advertise where the toolkits
are located.
The program is designed
to help educate caregivers,
social workers, older adults,
and their families about fraud.
Covered topics include scams
targeting older adults, identity
theft, and credit card fraud.
The toolkit can be found on
the Ohio Attorney Generals
Organizations also can
request a speaker from the
Ohio Attorney Generals
Office to conduct a SAFE
presentation. Continuing
education credit (1.5 hours) is
available for social workers.
Consumers who suspect
a scam or who want to learn
more should contact the Ohio

Avoid expensive errors

when paying for college

By Phil Recker
Edward Jones Advisor
Its just about Back-toSchool time again. If you have
young children, you might be
hustling them to the store for
backpacks and binders. But if
you fast-forward a few years,
you can envision driving your
kids a little farther to their
college dorms. And when that

day comes, youll want to be

financially prepared. So youll
want to avoid making costly
mistakes when preparing for,
and paying, those big bills.
Here are some of the most
common of these errors:
Not saving enough
Only half of all families with
children under 18 save any
money for college, according
to a recent study by Sallie
Mae, the countrys largest
originator of federally insured
student loans. You might find
it easier to save for college if
you automatically move a set
amount each month from your
checking or savings account
to a college savings vehicle.
Not considering vehicles
with growth potential The
same Sallie Mae study found
that more parents use a general
savings account than any other
method of saving for college.
But since most savings
accounts these days pay only
a minimal rate of return, you
will have trouble getting the
growth potential you need to
achieve your college savings
goals. Consider working
toward your college savings
goals by investing in a vehicle
specifically designed for
college, such as a 529 plan
or a Coverdell plan. There
are differences between these
plans, such as contribution
limits and tax treatments,
but both allow you to invest
for growth potential. As with
any investment account, there
are risks involved, including
market risk.
Stopping your savings
once your children are in
college Unless your children
plan to take an awful lot of
credits, theyre not going to
finish college in just one year.
Consequently, youll want to
keep investing in your plan or
other college savings vehicle
while your children are in

Financial Focus

Taking out 401(k) loans
Your employer may allow you
to take out a loan against your
401(k) to help pay for college.
But this may not be a good
idea for two reasons: First,
when you remove money from
your 401(k) even if you plan
on eventually paying it back
you will slow the potential
accumulation in your account,
thereby depriving yourself of
resources you will eventually
need for retirement. Second,
should you leave the
company, you might have to
repay the loan within a limited
number of days.
Not using available tax
credits Depending on your
income, you might qualify for
the American Opportunity tax
credit, which is worth up to
$2,500, provided you spend
at least $4,000 on college
expenses. Check with your
tax professional to see if you
qualify for this credit and how
to most effectively incorporate
it. And be careful you dont
waste the credit, because you
may not be able to use it and
your plan distributions at the
same time.
Paying for college can
be challenging but if you
can avoid making the above
mistakes, youve got a better
chance of getting your kids
through school without
derailing the progress youd
like to make toward your
other financial goals.

10-year-old is accomplishing big
things on the baseball diamond
this summer and will represent
Paulding County in a big way.
Luke Krouse, son of Michael

and Kansas City.
It was a tremendous honor
for Luke to be a part of that
experience, noted Mike Krouse,
who is a Doctor of Chiropractic
in Payne. Seeing the quality of
the players and coaching that he
was able to be a part of was a
great experience for him.
I think one of the best things
was just being able to meet other
boys from around the country
and to be able to play with and
against them, stated Luke
Krouse. The level of play and
pitching was very good all the
way around.
The games were played at
Disneys Wide World of Sports
complex just outside of Orlando,
providing a trip to Disney for
Lukes younger sister Lydia as
well. Lukes mom April is an
elementary teacher at Payne
Elementary School.
She was excited about that,
noted Mike. It was kind of her
wish to go to Disney that started
the whole process and then it
worked out so she was pretty
pleased with that.
Krouses Great Lakes
regional team finished 2-2 in the
tournament, taking part in games
against teams from the Northeast,
Atlantic, Southeast and Far West
Luke pitched against the
Atlantic squad, tossing three
innings with four strikeouts
while allowing one hit. Krouse
played first base as well in the
It was a nice tournament
because all of the kids who were
pitchers got an opportunity to
pitch and they batted everybody
so all of the players were able to
get at-bats as well, commented
Mike. All of the ballplayers
were very good and the ESPN
complex was an amazing place
to play.
As great as that experience
was, Luke still has another
opportunity coming up on Labor
Day weekend that will be as or

even possibly more exciting.

The Archer elementary student
recently was notified he made
the Ohio Valley regional team
and will travel to Cary, North
Carolina, to compete at the USA
Baseball complex. The process
is part of the National Team
Identification Series, which
selects teams at the levels of 11U,
13U, 14U, 16U and 17U. Ages
are based on calendar year age.
Sixteen different teams will
take part in the selection process
with eighteen kids on each
squad. Luke took part in regional
tryouts in Columbus with players
from Kentucky, Ohio and
Pennsylvania qualifying to be
part of the Ohio Valley squad.
Potential players were
evaluated in several different
skills tests and played games in
front of coaches from around the
Ohio Valley region.
This has been a goal for
Luke, noted Mike. We stopped
and watched some games at the
facility a couple of years ago and
he wanted to hopefully have this
Athletes will take part in
tests from Thursday-Sunday of
Labor Day weekend as well as
participate in three nine-inning
games starting Friday through
Sunday. It will mean some days
out of school for Luke, but an
opportunity that most young
athletes dont get as well.
One of the coolest things is
the letter I got, added Luke.
It is an official from the USA
Baseball selection committee
and is addressed to the school
stating that I will be out of school
for this. It is just neat to have
something like that.
It is just a great opportunity
for him and hopefully he is able
to put his best effort in those four
days, concluded Mike. At least
a dozen of the kids trying out at
the 11U level will be asked back
to try out for the 12U team next
year and it could be up to 40 of
them. We are just thankful for the

Kids need their immunizations

COLUMBUS Back-toschool season is just days
away for some students, and
that means parents are out
getting supplies, new clothes
and back packs. Its also the
perfect time to make sure
your kids are up-to-date on
their vaccines.
Unvaccinated children are at
increased risk for contracting
vaccine-preventable diseases
like measles, mumps and
whooping cough. They also
may spread such diseases
which are serious or
potentially life-threatening for
high-risk individuals such as
infants who are too young to
be fully vaccinated and others

for everyone, and to make
sure that children in particular
are protected with all of
the vaccines they need, the
Ohio Department of Health
(ODH) is joining the U.S.

Awareness Month.
Getting children all of
the vaccines recommended
by CDCs immunization
schedule is one of the most
important things parents can
do to protect their childrens
health and that of classmates
and the community, said
state epidemiologist Dr. Mary
DiOrio. If you havent done

PCH is working with the

Drivers cautioned as
school begins

COLUMBUS With the new academic year approaching
for Ohio students, the Ohio State Highway Patrol is reminding
drivers to be alert for stopped school buses that will soon be
on the road again every weekday. Extra patience and attention
will help make a safer school year for children statewide.
Motorists should remember to stop at least 10 feet back
when approaching a school bus from either side while it
displays flashing lights and an extended arm, and to not
resume driving until the school bus begins moving. From
2011-2013, 4,055 drivers were convicted of failing to stop
for a school bus that was loading or dropping off passengers.
All Ohioans play a part in making it safe for students to
load and unload school buses, said Colonel Paul A. Pride,
Patrol superintendent. Motorists must be cautious when
driving near school buses, and parents should teach their
children to stop and look both ways before crossing the street.
The patrol will do our part by watching for motorists driving
The patrol reminds motorists to plan ahead and allow
extra time for these school bus stops. Motorists are urged to
exercise patience and never pass a stopped school bus.

150 that was signed into law
by Governor John Kasich,
the Lake Erie Nutrient
Reduction Program (LE
NRP) will assist farmers in
installing best management
practices that keep nutrients
on fields, improve water
quality and combat harmful
algal blooms.
The program will be
supervised locally by the
Paulding County Soil
and Water Conservation
District. Working with the
Ohio Department of Natural
Resources (ODNR) through
the Ohio Clean Lakes
Initiative, $1.25 million will
be available to producers in
27 Ohio counties. ODNR
has already helped farmers

to gain something
even more valuable.

Farmers have shown
us theyre serious about
improving Lake Erie,
said ODNR director James
Zehringer. ODNR is pleased
to partner with Ohios local
soil and water conservation
districts to get more practices
installed as soon as possible.
We all have a part to play
to improve water quality
in Lake Erie, said Deb
Hubbard of Paulding SWCD.

The LE NRP is a voluntary
program that reimburses
farmers to plant cover
crops or install drainage
management devices such
as controlled drainage
structures or blind tile inlets.
In addition to reducing runoff
of nutrients and pesticides the
practices will allow farmers
to manage and maintain
the water from their fields
after harvest and during the
growing season, ultimately
enhancing production.

Payne council approves fire

hose purchase and training
Staff Writer
PAYNE - The Payne
village council met briefly on
Monday evening and while
the meeting lasted just 45
minutes, council approved the
purchase of 700 feet of fire
hose, will consider a collection
agency to collect unpaid EMS
bills and agreed to have Fire
Chief Jamie Mansfield look
into fire fighting training that
could conceivably save the
village nearly $6,800.
Council gave approval
of the purchase of 700 feet
of five-inch fire hose at an
approximate cost of $4,000.
Half of the $4,000 expense
would come from budgeted
funds while the other half
would be split three ways
with the village, Harrison
Township and Benton
Township each paying
an equal portion. The fire
department is also in need of
a 1 3/4 inch hose, but right
now Chief Mansfield and
his department can manage
without the hose but will need
to consider the purchase at a
later date. The hose needed
costs $110 per 50 foot section
with several sections being
purchased before the end of

This 11th day of August, 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.
Mark Rassman, Paulding County
dog warden The commissioners
accepted Rassmans resignation as
dog warden effective Oct. 24, 2014.
Zartman thanked Rassman for the
work he has done at the dog kennel.
All three commissioners commended
him for making some improvements
to the kennel.
Rassman recommended the
commissioners investigate a more
cost-effective disposal policy.
He also reported the pressure
washer has been damaged. He
suggested the hard water issue at the
kennel contributed to the damage.
For a possible remedy, he asked the
commissioners to consider another
well be drilled to be specifically
used at the dog kennel. The pressure
washer is currently being housed at
the sheriffs office.
Rassman then suggested that
community service hours be utilized
when extra work needs to be done at
the kennel.
He also noted the kennel floor may
need to be re-coated (epoxy) within
the next two years.
Corey Walker, Defiance-Paulding
Consolidated JFS, updated the
commissioners on the Paulding

Service Center will hold its
regular August governing
board meeting at 6 p.m.
Wednesday, Aug. 27, at
the Van Wert ESC, 813 N.
Franklin St., Van Wert.

QUESTION: After decades

of looking forward to
retirement, I find that the
promised carefree lifestyle
isnt quite what I expected.
I worked hard to attain this
goal, and now Im struggling
with discontentment. What
do you suggest I do?
JIM: Restlessness and
discontent are often spawned
by false hopes and unrealistic
expectations. Weve been
conditioned by advertisers
and marketers to picture
retirement as an endless
existence of leisure and
luxury. The problem is that
most of us never make it to
this paradise and even
those who do sometimes
find it leaves a sour taste in
their mouth. Perhaps your
dissatisfaction stems from
your experience not matching
up with the hype.
If retirement isnt delivering
what you really want out of
life, Id encourage you to
shake up the status quo. Start
by taking an honest inventory
of who you are and what you
desire. Its quite possible that
youre a person who, more
than anything else, wants the

reasons to visit?
I was very surprised a
month after my 19th birthday
when Mom and Dad asked to
talk with me in private and
announced that Daniel Yoder
wanted to start a friendship
with me. After spending time
in prayer and seeking the
Lords will, we responded
back to him with a positive
I was honored. I had always
respected him as a Godly
young man. After having a
mutual agreement to begin a
friendship, a day is picked for
the couple to have their first
date. Generally, it is kept as a
secret until then. The boy will
then take the girl from church
to her house on a Sunday
afternoon where they spend
time together.
Daniel came to Flat Rock
for our first date. He traveled
with his brother, who also had
a girlfriend in our community.
After the Sunday services I
nervously, yet eagerly, waited
until it was time to go home.
When the time finally came
to leave, we walked out to
our buggy and helped each
other hitch up the horse. It
seemed like there were people
everywhere watching us, most
of them very surprised to see
the two of us together.
We spent the afternoon at
our cabin chatting, reading the
Bible and praying together.
After our date we joined the
other youth for supper and a
hymn singing.
Living 370 miles apart
required lots of phone
dates, but of course, we
were always looking for a
practical opportunity to spend
time together. Traveling to
Danville rapidly became a
highlight for me.
One evening when our
family sat around the table
eating supper, there was a
knock at the back door which
was off of our kitchen.
Come in! I said, expecting
to see a neighbor lady. The
door opened and in walked

Daniel Yoder in person. I

almost shrieked.
I was overtaken with
surprise, my mouth dropped
open. I was speechless. What
could I say? Were my eyes
playing tricks on me or was
this real? Needless to say,
we had a wonderful weekend
together before it was time for
him to travel home once more.
Nine months after our first
date, I found Daniel and I
making preparations for our
wedding day. On March 19,
2010, we began our journey
together as husband and wife.
My parents hosted a
wedding with 400 guests.
Everyone in my family did a
wonderful job with cleaning,
organizing, and planning.
There was tons of work
involved with countless
little details. My mother gets
first prize with all she did in
keeping things organized
and running smoothly. She
planned a full-course Amish
meal of dinner rolls, tossed
salad, Salisbury steak, mashed
potatoes, gravy, mixed
vegetables, grape jello salad,
peanut butter pie, pecan pie
and ice cream.
I feel unworthy of
everything that was done
for us in preparing for our
unforgettable day, as well as
all the visitors who traveled
hundreds of miles to show
their love and support.
This week Ill share a recipe
that was used at our wedding.
6 pounds turkey burger
1-1/2 pounds sausage
2 cups quick oats
2 cups cracker crumbs
5 cups cold water
2 tablespoons dehydrated
1 tablespoon black pepper
3 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon Lawrys
seasoning salt
Mix and press into a
cookie sheet with sides. Chill
overnight. Cut into squares.
Grill and top with your
favorite barbecue sauce.

Another week has swiftly

passed. Friday evening was
a highlight for me. Everyone
in church was invited to
participate in an informal
singing at the school house.
Throughout the evening
several men shared some
Something that stood out
for me was what a brother
said about having hectic
lifestyles and schedules. He
challenged us to examine
our lives to see whether we
have a Jesus schedule or if
we werent too busy to take
time for what really counts in
life. Afterwards we had some
scrumptious snacks. Each of
us brought a finger food so
we had an excellent variety to
choose from.
To those of you who may
have not read my last letter,
my husband Daniel grew up
in Danville, Ohio, and most
of my growing up years were
spent here in Flat Rock, Ill.
People keep asking us how
we met, being from different
states and Amish at that.
Ill first give you a brief
outline on what dating is like
in our community and how it
is done.
Before starting any boygirl relationships, youth are
expected to be at least 18
years old and a member of the
church. The boy is always the
one who leads out and makes
the first step. After praying
and seeking Gods will, he
talks with the girls father and
asks for his blessing before
proceeding in making contact
with her.
Our mothers first met at a
funeral when I was 10 years
old. Immediately there was a
bond of kindred spirits. Being
of similar church fellowship,
their family occasionally
came for a visit and would also
spend time with other friends
in our community. Javin, my
older brother, enjoyed when
Daniel came to our house to
spend time with him or were
there perhaps some hidden

opportunity to keep giving of

yourself. In fact, Focus on the
Family has been blessed by
the invaluable contributions
of retirees who volunteer their
skills and experience to help
us in our outreach.
If you feel something
like this might provide the
fulfillment youve been
lacking, I can assure you
that there is no shortage of
organizations needing your
help. You might start with
your church or local school
district they always need
mentors or teaching assistants.
And many nature preserves,
museums and fine art centers
are searching for docents.
That said, its also possible
you may be struggling with
depression that sometimes
accompanies a major change
in life. If you think this
may be your situation, Id
invite you to call our Focus
counseling staff. They would
be privileged to help you
work through this transition,
so you can embrace this new
season to the fullest.
supposed to love and honor
my wife, but there are times
when shes incredibly rude
and unkind to me, our kids
and even family and friends.
How can I honor her
when shes behaving badly?
vice president, Family
Ministries: There are many
ways a husband can honor his
wife. Admittedly, thats a lot
easier when were happy and
the relationship is peachy. But
unkind and selfish behavior
is something weve all been
guilty of, and its how we
respond to our spouse when
were on the receiving end

thats the key. Heres an

approach Ive found helpful.
Separate the person from
the behavior. As someone
created in Gods image, your
wife is of value and worthy
of honor regardless of her
Recognize that your
perception of your wife is
affected by her behavior.
Its easy to switch lenses
when youre frequently
hurt or frustrated by her.
Consequently, you may be
tempted to see everything
through a lens that accentuates
the negative and eliminates
the positive. Psychologists
call this confirmation bias.
The remedy is to flip the lens
and begin actively looking for
the positives.
Consider how you might
be distorting the problem.
Is it possible that you have
a hot button, a pet peeve, an
old wound or an issue in your
past that makes a particular
behavior loom large in your
Finally, confront the
negative behavior, not the
person, using healthy conflictresolution tools. Its critical to
do this in the spirit of honesty
and humility versus anger and
pride. This, ultimately, is how
you will honor her.
For help on navigating
conflict in a respectful,
appropriate and effective
way, check out my book,
Fight Your Way to a Better
Marriage (Howard Books,
2013), or call our Focus staff

What all pilots have

been taught

ANNUAL MEETING The Pond Seed Company of Scott recently held its annual Seed Partner
Meeting with 175 guests attending. The highlight of the evening was a report from Marcia Pond
on their Sign Me Up program. For each field sign that is placed throughout the community,
$1 is donated to area food pantries. This year between the Pond Seed Co. Team and AgriGold,
nearly 1,000 field signs were put up. Pond reported, We will be dividing $1,000 between several
local food pantries. Also, the canned goods collected tonight will be given to the Salvation
Army in Van Wert. ... We are farmers and we feed people, thats what we do. The Pond Seed
Company is very thankful to area farmers that allow them to showcase their farms. After dinner,
two excellent speakers from Monsanto Janice Person and Duane Simpson presented topics
on the state of agriculture. Many difficulties are in front of farmers, some coming from our own
government and others dealing with public perception of agriculture. From left are Nick Steyer,
Nick Brackman, Marcia Pond, Fred Pond, Reid Stoller and Nick Wilker.

The following 20 rules for
flight actually came from
people at the Tomahawk
Regional Airport. Id guess
anyone with a pilots license
has seen this list and can attest
to their validity.
1. Every takeoff is optional.
Every landing is mandatory.
2. If you push the stick
forward, the houses get
bigger. If you pull the stick
back, they get smaller. That
is, unless you keep pulling the
stick all the way back, then
they get bigger again.
3. Flying is not dangerous.
Crashing is whats dangerous.
4. Its always better to be
down here wishing you were
up there rather than up there
wishing you were down here.
5. The only time you can
have too much fuel is when

youre on fire.
6. The propeller is just a big
fan in front of the plane which
is used to keep the pilot cool.
When it stops you can actually
see the pilot sweating.
7. When in doubt hold on to
your altitude. No one has ever
collided with the sky.
8. A good landing is one
from which you can walk
away. A great landing is one
after which you can use the
plane again.
9. Learn from the mistakes
of others. You wont live long
enough to make all of them
10. You know youve landed
with the wheels up if it takes
full power to taxi to the ramp.
11. The probability
of survival is inversely
proportional to the angle of
arrival. Large angle of arrival,
small likelihood of survival,

12. Stay out of clouds. The
silver lining everyone keeps
talking about might be another
airplane going in the opposite
direction. Reliable sources
also report that mountains
tend to hide out in clouds.
13. Always try to keep
the number of landings you
make equal to the number of
takeoffs youve made.
14. You start out with a bag
full of luck and an empty bag
of experience. The trick is to
fill the bag with experience
before you empty the bag of
15. Helicopters cant

17. Keep looking around.
Theres always something
youve missed. Why are there
no parachutes or flotation
18. There are three simple
rules for making a smooth
landing. Unfortunately, no
one knows what they are!

between objects made of
aluminum going hundreds of
miles an hour and the ground
going zero miles an hour, the
ground has yet to lose.

4. People no longer view

5. There is nothing left to
learn the hard way. I think
Ive surfed the entire internet.
6. Things you buy now
wont wear out.
7. You can eat supper at 4
p. m.
8. You can live without
sex but not your glasses or
hearing aid.
9. You get into heated
arguments about pension
plans and Social Security
10. You no longer think of
speed limits as a challenge.
You are more likely to be
stopped for going too slow.
11. You quit trying to hold
your stomach in no matter
who walks into the room.
12. Your doctor says your
eyes wont get much worse.
13. Your investment in
health and life insurance are
beginning to pay off.
14. Your joints are more
accurate meteorologists than

15. Your secrets are safe

cant remember them either.
