Clemens finishes 50-0, Goeltzenleuchter takes 5th

COLUMBUS For the first time in
Paulding County history, the county
claimed a state wrestling championship
as Wayne Trace senior George Clemens
won the 126 pound weight class Saturday at the Jerome Schottenstein Center
on the campus of The Ohio State University.
Clemens capped off a perfect season

on the mats, posting a 2-1 win over Genoas Damian DEmilio to finish the
year with an unblemished 50-0 record.
Wayne Trace head coach George Clemens couldnt have been prouder of his
top wrestler and son for his accomplishments.
Words cannot describe the emotions
I felt and still feel, commented the elder Clemens Sunday afternoon when
contacted at home. Having George

become the first state champion in wrestling from Wayne Trace is something
to be very proud of. Then, also to be
the first state champion from Paulding
County is another accomplishment as
well. I am just so proud of him.
Clemens concluded his Raider career
with an overall record of 187-15. He
was 46-3 as a freshman before following that up with a 47-5 record as a sophomore. A year ago, he finished 44-7 and

took sixth in the state tournament to set

up this years tremendous ride.
He really committed himself over
the summer, noted the Raider mentor
of his son. He took part in a lot of meets
in working with other schools and just
really put in a lot of extra time to improve himself. He was basically a man
on a mission after reaching the podium

US Marshals offering $1,000 reward

Progress Editor
PAULDING The U.S. Marshals have
announced a $1,000 reward for information
leading to the arrest of a local man wanted
for murder.
Authorities are searching for Frank Tracy Jr., 47, who is suspected of killing his
21-year-old girlfriend, Hannah Fischer, in
Paulding. Her body was found Feb. 9 in
their apartment on West Perry Street.
U.S. Marshal Chris Hodge, whose office
is located in Toledo, said he reached out to
Paulding County Sheriffs Office and Paulding Police Department on Monday, Feb. 29
offering assistance in locating Tracy.
The reward information was first released

the afternoon of Wednesday, March 2 and

almost immediately, the marshals office
started receiving calls.
We were out there all day (Wednesday), Hodge said. Weve been working
He spent 11 hours in Paulding and Defiance counties on Monday, including searching a property.
We have put a ton of man-hours in this
case so far, Hodge said. We have gotten
some tips and check every single one. At
this time, we have no viable leads.
Anyone with information on Tracys
whereabouts may call toll-free 1-866-4926833. All callers remain anonymous, Hodge
said. For the reward to be paid, the informa-

tion must lead directly to Tracys arrest.

Tracy hasnt been seen since early February. Authorities dont know what type of
vehicle, if any, he may be driving.
Hodge notes that Tracy does have a
criminal record; hes been in and out of prison before. Anyone wanted for murder is potentially dangerous.
Most recently, Tracy was released from
prison in August 2015 after serving less than
a year on a drug charge.
Hodge declined to comment on any details surrounding the homicide discovered
four weeks ago, saying that police are still
My only job is to look for Mr. Tracy,

Greear likes the small

town feel of Broughton

Progress Staff Writer
Part 5 of 5
BROUGHTON Its just a
nice community where everyone gets along. When someone
needs help, they know they
have a neighbor who will offer
a hand, said Broughton Mayor
Donna Greear, as she describes
the village she calls home.
Greear was elected mayor
back in November 2015 and
looks forward to serving the
small village of Broughton
where shes lived her entire life.
Simply put, Greear said when
describing why she wanted to be
mayor, Im from here, everyone knows everyone and takes
care of everyone and I wanted
to help continue the process of
developing the character of this
great town.
Since January, when Greear
officially began her initial fouryear term, she admits seeing a
community that has no huge
issues, but at the same time she
knows that her office, as well
as the six member council, will
work together to provide the
leadership necessary to keep
Broughton the kind of community of which everyone can be

The community, founded in

1882, currently has a population
of around 120, but Greear has no
trouble expressing the positives
on why Broughton is her choice
to call home.
When looking to the future,
Greear has one shortterm goal
she would like to see accomplished. She has a desire to see
a playground built, possibly near
the town hall, where the kids in
the community would have a
place to call their own.
Greear is an optimist who
loves her town and will use her
leadership skills to continue
doing what makes it a special
There really isnt anything
broke about Broughton and so
there isnt much that needs to be
fixed. Hopefully we can maintain what we have done in the
past and enjoy the small-town
feel where everyone desires the
best for their neighbor, concluded Greear.
Note: Five new mayors took
office in the county in January:
Steve Wobler of Payne Village,
Ray DeLong of Antwerp Village,
Joe Shouse/Paulding County Progress
Brian Ripke of Oakwood Village, Greg Reinhart of Paulding Broughtons new mayor, Donna Greear, loves her town and
Village, and Donna Greear of will use her leadership skills to continue doing what makes it a
special place.

Prior to the ribbon cutting,
Pieper offered a brief history
of the library and a look to the
Just think about it a hundred years ago today, this library opened its doors for the
very first time, Pieper said.
With todays state-of-the-art
technology and connectivity,
she wondered, What would
Carnegie have thought?
I just want to dedicate this
ribbon cutting and this ceremony to the next 100 years of
providing engaging and compelling services for children,
introducing kids to books and
literature and reading, introducing parents with new ways
to engage their children with
literature and reading aloud
to their children, to teenagers
and what theyre going to be
doing in the future, said the

We have high-speed Internet connections here. Our

technology is state-of-the-art
and sometimes you want to

big effort to provide this and
knowing that this library is going to be standing when were
long dust. What would Carnegie have thought? concluded
A video of a portion of
Piepers talk has been posted on our website
The library had on display
scrapbooks from past decades,
a selection of books that were
on the shelves on the librarys
opening day, and furniture
pieces original to the library
still in use.
The library has scheduled
a major birthday event on
Saturday, July 9, during John
Paulding Days. Plans include
a hog roast and picnic, games,

Payne woman dies in

crash near Van Wert
VAN WERT A two-vehicle crash Monday morning
on US 30 in Van Wert County
claimed the life of a Paulding
County motorist and injured a
second driver.
Dead is Linda Page, age 77,
from Payne.
According to the Van Wert
Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, at approximately 11 a.m. March 7, a 2009
Chevrolet Malibu, driven by
Page, was southbound on Liberty Union Road in Van Wert
County when she attempted to
cross US 30. Pages vehicle
was struck by a westbound
2015 Hyundai Elantra, driven
by Sarah Leslie, age 41, of Columbus.
Leslie was transported to

Van Wert County Hospital for

treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Page was transported to Van
Wert County Hospital where
she was pronounced dead
from the injuries sustained in
the crash.
The crash resulted in a brief
closure of US 30 at Liberty
Union Road. The roadway has
since been reopened.
Both drivers were wearing
seat belts and alcohol use is
not believed to be a factor in
the crash. The crash remains
under investigation.
The Van Wert Post was assisted by the Van Wert and
Paulding County Sheriffs Offices, Convoy Fire and EMS
and Brickner EMS.

last year and he said from day
one he was going to win the
state title this year.
While Clemens was claiming the state title, Wayne Trace
also was well represented by
another member of its squad.
Junior Ruger Goeltzenleuchter wrapped up a fifth place
finish by defeating Massillon
Tuslaws Isaac Elliott 11-9 in
the 120 pound weight class.
Ruger worked extremely
hard as well this year, commented the Raider head coach.
Like George, Ruger put in a
lot of extra time last summer
and has worked very, very
Both Ruger and George
took part in the Disney Duals
as part of a team that consisted
of a lot of Delta kids last summer, added the elder Clemens.
It was a very special experience for both of them. They
both got a tremendous amount
of experience taking part in a
lot of extra matches in the offseason.
Both Clemens and Goeltzenleuchter won their opening
matches at the state tournament

as Clemens pinned Galion

Northmors Aaron Kitts in 2:41
while Goeltzenleuchter won a
4-2 decision over Cadiz Harrisons Brandon White 4-2.
Clemens followed that up
with a 9-2 win over Logan Kissell of Garrettsville Garfield in
the championship quarterfinals
before knocking off Akron
Manchesters Joey Bowen 5-3
in the championship semifinals.
Goeltzenleuchter fell 6-2 to Massillon
Tuslaws Isaac Elliott in the
championship quarterfinals to
fall into the losers bracket. He
rebounded with an 8-4 victory
over Cameron Gessner of Sandusky St. Marys in the consolation quarterfinals but fell to
Rootstowns Seth Hayes 7-5.
It was pretty cool to see
Wayne Trace on the team
points board at the Schottenstein Center, commented the
Raider head coach. It was the
first time we had really shown
up on that and we finished 11th
as a team so that is a great accomplishment for these two
I want to thank all of the

Wayne Trace administration,

parents, other wrestlers and the
rest of the Raider community
for their support of our program
and these two guys especially,
Clemens continued. It was really appreciated and we were
really pleased and proud to be
from Wayne Trace.
Clemens is hopeful to use
this as a springboard for further
success in the future.
This is fifth or sixth year
that we have had somebody
place at state, added the Raider head coach. Hopefully, we
are able to use this excitement
and continue to build the program going forward. We feel
like we have some good young
wrestlers coming in the future.
I am just so proud of both
of these guys, concluded the
Raider mentor. As a father,
I cant be prouder of what
George has accomplished. But
Ruger has had a tremendous
season as well and what he has
done has been awesome. Both
of these guys have put so much
work in and just to see them
have the success they have had,
it has been great.

Kasich can fix

nations problems
Dear Editor,
2016 is shaping up to be
the most divisive election
in our nations history. The
way some of these candidates
talk to or about each other is
absolutely disgusting. When
we all grew up, our parents
taught us basic morals: be
respectful, have manners,
stand up for what you believe
in but dont be a jerk. Unfortunately, however, on one
hand, were teaching our kids,
or our friends to be respectful,
and on the other, we support
candidates that completely
undermine those values.
Its easy to say that we are
going to make everything great
or that were just going to win
or that were just simply good
speakers, but America needs to
a leader with experience.
I hope everyone remembers
that we are not voting for
class president. We are electing the next president of the
United States!
For the past eight years,
the Republicans and the GOP
have been complaining about
the one-term senator from Illinois without any experience
leading our nation. On-thejob training does not work
Barack Obama has proved
that. One-term senators cannot
be president - Barack Obama
has proved that. And a good
voice is certainly not a qualification to be president Barack
Obama has proved that. Do
we, the Republicans, have amnesia? We have to wake up!
John Kasich inherited a
mess when he was elected
governor in 2010. We lost
360,000 jobs, we had a record
$8 billion deficit, 89 cents in
the rainy day fund, and a bad
credit - Ohio was a basket
case. Kasich was told that he
couldnt fix it. They said he
couldnt do it.
However, the governor
laughed at the impossible and
just went for it. He looked
at the problems square in
the eye and defeated them.
Today, Ohio has created over
410,000 jobs, we now are at
a $2 billion surplus, upgraded credit, and he did all that
while cutting taxes by $5 billion, the most out of any sitting governor in the country.
That explains why he has a 62
percent approval rating here,
and is defeating Hillary Clinton by the most out of any
other candidate, 11 points.
If youre angry and frustrated with the politicians,
believe me, we all are. But
we cannot elect someone who
will diminish our standing
in the world and divide this
country. In order to fix the
problems in Washington, we
need someone who has a record of shaking things up.
John Kasich will shift the
power, the money, and the
influence out of Washington
and put it back into our pockets. John Kasich will restore
the American dream, create
jobs, regain respect on the
world stage, and balance our
nations budget.
I hope youll consider voting
for our governor on March 15.
Buckle up - John Kasich is
ready to hit the ground running.

Cruz, not Trump, Riedel can

represents values move us forward
of conservatives Dear
This year, we have the oppor-

Dear Editor:
Conservatives or conservative
thinkers ... This letter is addressed to you.
How important to you are
these values? Are they important
enough to you that you would
refuse to compromise or deny
them? I ask everyone to consider the preposition that when
we have values that are rooted
in substance, we should never
compromise them. Many conservatives are also Christians, and
it says in the Scriptures that, as
a man thinketh in his heart, so is
he. Thus our values define us,
and should never be indiscriminately compromised.
What is all this about? It is
about our vote in the Primary
Election on March 15. We have
several options to choose from;
and there is a broad spectrum of
candidate policies and positions.
As voters, we need to determine how their views and policies truly align with our own.
Many people seem to be
rallying around Donald Trump,
and these folks term themselves
conservatives and evangelical
Christians. But their support for
him seems inconsistent with the
long held and Biblically basis
positions of conservatives and
Christians. Such beliefs are prolife, marriage between a man and
a woman, anti-deception, pro
compassion and graciousness.
In addition to these inconsistencies, Trump holds political
views that are at odds with our
typical principles. Trump has all
but endorsed the single-payer
health insurance system; and
says that his solution to the
healthcare dilemma consists of
simply removing the state borders for insurance sales purposes.
This will help, but it will come
nowhere close to solving the
problem; and he knows that, but
do we?
He has said that Planned Parenthood has done tremendous
good for women ... Outside of
providing them with abortions,
I would like to know what that
is. They simply do not provide
many of the technical services
they purport to provide. He
would do nothing to actually
reign in abortion in this nation.
That may not matter to us, but
I will go on the limb and say it
matters to God. Is that our kind
of society?
Other political issues we believe in are smaller constitutional
government; responsible spending; balanced budgets; fair taxation; less regulation. Trump has
said nothing concrete on these
And concerning protection of
religious liberty, I do not think
Trump would lift a single finger
to offer any effort to stem the
anti-Christian tide that is sweeping our culture, where people
have bought the lie that the First
Amendment is not Freedom
of Religion, but Freedom from
Religion. Trump would be of no
consequence there. If not there,
would he support other Bill of
Rights freedoms? It seems his
support would be in doubt.
Enough negatives. The positive in all of this, is that we
do have a candidate who has
indeed gone on the line time
and time again for these values.
And his name is Ted Cruz. He
has litigated before the Supreme
Court nine times and won in
multiple Bill of Rights issues. He
has written numerous briefs for
that court. We 2nd Amendment
believers have our freedom of
firearms now because Ted Cruz
dared to stand before Obamas
panels and testify about the fallacy of those programs. We, who
cherish freedom above fortune,
owe Ted Cruz a debt of appreciation.
Since Ohio has become a
winner-take-all state this election
cycle, we dare not waste our
vote on any candidate who has
no chance of winning if we feel
Donald Trump does not truly
represent our values while someone else does. This is especially
true if that person has a chance to
surpass him in the Primary, and a
better chance of winning in November. I believe Ted Cruz has
to be our choice. Please consider.

tunity to designate an eager and

enthusiastic man by the name
of Craig Riedel for the next
state representative for the 82nd
House District. I have known
Craig and his family all of my
life and cannot think of a more
worthy and deserving individual.
He is a family man, a business
man, and an all around loyal individual.
Craig and his family initially
settled in Defiance in 1989.
Later, they lived in Grand Rapids for a few years, but shortly
returned to Defiance in 2002 and
have been vigorous supporters
of the Defiance community ever
since. Their children, Steve and
Renee, both graduated from Defiance High School and went on
to pursue higher education at The
Ohio State University where they
graduated and went on to attain
professional jobs in the Columbus and Chicago areas. Craigs
children, and his wife, Danette
are his biggest supporters.
Recently retired, Craig is
highly motivated to pursue his
passion for public service and
is determined to outshine the
incumbent from Payne at the
Republican Primary on March
Craig has 27 years of experience in the private business
sector and possesses a strong
background in strategic planning.
He is fiscally conservative and
comprehends the limitations
of industrial regulations. Craig
is an outstanding communicator, listener, and team player.
He conveys a strong Christian
leadership and a work ethic that
will have a substantial impact on
Wapakoneta and the surrounding
Northwest Ohio has been in
a state of inaction or suspension
for too long. It is time for the
politicians in Columbus to be
challenged. Craig Riedel will
challenge them. He is the right
candidate for the position. I believe that he can overcome the
hurdles and move us forward.
Subsequently, I ask that you join
me in supporting all of his hard
work and dedication by casting
your vote for him in the March
15 Republican Primary for the
state representative of the 82nd
House District.

Burkley is proven
for state rep
Dear Editor,
With the liberal media painting a harsh perspective of the
conservative movement, many
have no idea what it means to
be a conservative anymore.
Fortunately, in the race for state
representative, we have a candidate who is a true conservative, and thats Tony Burkley.
We need a leader who has a
strong record of protecting our
faith and family while defending our 2nd Amendment rights
and tightening the purse strings
of government.
As a small business owner,
Burkley knows firsthand what
impact an overreaching government has on the private sector. As a member of the Ohio
House, Burkley helped balance
our states budget without raising taxes. He is also working
with his colleagues to address
the CAUV issue facing the
farming community.
When leading conservative
organizations looked for the
right candidate in this race,
they turned to Tony Burkley.
Since announcing his run for
re-election, Ohio Right to Life,
NRA, Ohio Chamber of Commerce, and NFIB have thrown
their support behind him due
to his record of results in the
legislature. Tony Burkley has
stood for the de-funding of
Planned Parenthood and has
taken steps toward addressing
the crippling drug epidemic
facing our communities.
As we head to vote this
March 15, lets remember
what is at stake this election
cycle. Tony Burkley is the
best candidate for state representative and I urge the
citizens of the 82nd House
District to vote for him.

Dear Editor,
Like most people, Im fed up
with all the negative political
attack ads, and one specific
race not only makes me mad,
but its clearly untruthful. Its
the ad attacking Tony Burkley
for state representative.
Larry and I first met Tony
and his wife Nancy when they
began attending our church
here in Van Wert over 20 years
ago. We were drawn to them as
a couple, and through the years
we have done many, many
things with them. We know the
Burkleys. We know and believe
in Tony so much that when he
first ran for state representative,
we along with our kids helped
him with his campaign by passing out his pamphlet in parades
around our county, going door
to door in Van Wert and a few
surrounding towns, and placing
signs in yards.
Tony is a Christian man of
integrity who owns his own
business in Paulding. Being a
business owner means he understands the risks and responsibilities that come with owning your own business which
is why he works so hard for
small businesses and farmers ...
he understands their everyday
concerns. Tony has been able
to grow and expand his own
business several times
because of his conservative
fiscal management, and he promotes legislation that reflects
his conservatism.
A false point made in this
TV/radio ad is that Tony voted
to give himself a raise. The
fact is the legislature voted to
give LOCAL elected officials a
raise. They did not take a raise
And, I dont consider Tony a

will be a strong voice as our

state representative in the
82nd District. With over 27
years in private business experience, Craig understands
the local economy and appreciates farming as an integral
part of our northwest Ohio
economy. I believe he will
represent the district and the
districts agricultural community very well when he is
elected to the Ohio House of
Representatives. Please join
me in casting a vote for Craig
Riedel on March 15, 2016 in
the Republican Primary Election.

Dear Editor,
We are writing in support
of incumbent State Representative Tony Burkley.
Tony brings an excellent
blend of experience to Columbus on behalf of northwest Ohio. He is a small
businessman (NAPA True
Value in downtown Paulding), active in Kiwanis and
his church. He served several
terms as a Paulding County
commissioner, making him
acutely aware of how actions
in Columbus affect local government.
We count Tonys experience as a definite plus, and
encourage you to support
Tony Burkleys re-election for
state representative in the Primary Election on March 15.

Ohios heroin emergency

By Mike DeWine
Ohio Attorney General
Unintentional drug overdoses claimed the lives of 2,482
Ohioans in 2014. Thats nearly four deaths every day, and an
alarming jump more than 17 percent over 2013s drug-induced fatalities.
Heroin infests every county in Ohio. No city, town, or village urban or rural escapes its clutches. In fact, Ohio is
mired in the worst drug epidemic I have witnessed in my lifetime. In my travels around the state I hear stories from Ohioans whose lives heroin has turned upside-down. Their stories
have made me determined to sound the alarm and do whatever
I can to prevent other Ohioans from experiencing their pain.
But no government office, whether federal, state or local,
can single-handedly solve the heroin problem. We cant arrest
or convict our way out of it. We can, however, attack the heroin problem holistically and seek solutions collaboratively.
But some obstacles arent easy to overcome.
For example, the psychological barrier the hesitation
even habitual drug consumers had about putting that stuff in
their veins has all but disappeared. Likewise, families may
ignore drug abuse in their own homes, fearing what the CBS
60 Minutes segment Heroin in the Heartland called the
stigma and shame compounding the epidemic.
That cautionary psychological barrier must be rebuilt. And
families whose loved ones struggle with addiction must be
encouraged to seek assistance.
Also, the drug cartels changed their business model and
moved the market for heroin into the suburbs and small towns.
Send the right text or make the right phone call and a dose of
heroin can be delivered to your doorstep as conveniently, and
for about the same price, as a deluxe pizza.
My office has taken actions to reduce the number of lives lost,
families devastated, and communities diminished as a result
of the damage heroin inflicts on our state.
In 2013 we combined some assets and created the AGO
Heroin Unit to pursue opiate traffickers and support community leaders, law enforcement and schools in their battles with
the heroin epidemic. During the 2015 fiscal year, we prosecuted more than 150 heroin-related cases.
Our Community Outreach Team has worked with community leaders in nearly every Ohio county. As part of the Taking
Back Our Communities: Combatting the Opiate Epidemic
conferences the team conducts around the state, theyre helping those leaders craft strategies and solutions.
Peace officers may now carry and administer Naloxone, an
antidote that reverses an opioid overdose. To help defray the
cost and make Naloxone more accessible, my office negotiated with the drugs manufacturer Amphastar Pharmaceuticals
Inc. who agreed to provide rebates for Naloxone syringes
bought by non-federal Ohio agencies. Last year, we distributed $91,272 in rebates to communities throughout Ohio.
Weve also responded to Ohios heroin epidemic outside the
conventional box. For example:
My office produced Marins Story: The Battle Against
Heroin, a powerful video about one young womans struggle
with heroin addiction. So far the video has reached some 10
million viewers on social media.
Through a pilot project were funding in northwest Ohio,
my office partnered with law enforcement and victim advocates in Lucas County to establish an innovative Drug Abuse
Response Team.
The 60 Minutes segment I mentioned earlier also highlighted the work of our Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
In January we convened an emergency summit where
hundreds of community, law enforcement, and public safety
representatives from all over the state learned about new and
successful ideas for fighting the heroin epidemic.
We supported CVS Pharmacies and Kroger when representatives of each retail chain announced their Ohio stores
will sell Naloxone on an over-the-counter basis, making the
antidote even more widely available to save Ohio lives.
Well continue to look for ways we can alert Ohioans about
and engage them in this battle.
Were stronger together than we are on or own. By sharing
ideas and building on each others strengths we can diminish
and ultimately defeat Ohios heroin epidemic.

International Investing Can Expand Your Horizons
help a country in need

By Phil Recker
Edward Jones Advisor
If you dont mind slow trips,
you can go around the world
in 80 days. But it takes almost
no time to become a global
investor. So, should you look
abroad for good investments?



Paulding Wind Farm III LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of EDP Renewables North America, LLC, is proposing to construct the Timber Road III
Transmission Line with associated point of interconnect (POI) switchyard in Paulding County. The proposed facility will consist of a new 138
kV transmission line and a new POI switchyard which will be used to
deliver power generated by the Timber Road I Wind Farm and the Timber Road III Wind Farm to the regional power grid. The Timber Road
III Wind Farm collection substation will be located along Road 124 just
west of the intersection with Road 33 in Harrison Township. The Timber
Road III transmission line will run south from the collection substation to
the existing 138 kV Lincoln-Sterling Circuit where the proposed Timber
Road III POI switchyard will be constructed. A preferred route and an
alternate route have been identified for the proposed transmission line.
The primary purpose of the facility is to deliver electricity generated by
the Timber Road I Wind Farm and the Timber Road III Wind Farm
from the collector substation to the Timber Road III Wind Farm to the
proposed Timber Road III POI switchyard to be located adjacent to the
existing American Electric Power 138 kV Lincoln-Sterling circuit.
The preferred transmission line route will traverse approximately 8.5
miles of land in Harrison and Benton Townships, connecting the wind
farm collection substation and the Timber Road III POI switchyard. The
alternate transmission line traverses approximately 11.6 miles of land in
Harrison and Benton Townships, connecting the wind farm collection

substation and the Timber Road III POI switchyard. The POI switchyard
is proposed to be on approximately 2.1 acres in an area enclosed by a

Paulding Wind Farm III LLC has filed with the Ohio Power Siting Board an application for a certificate to construct, operate and
maintain the Timber Road III electric transmission line and associated POI switchyard in Case No. 15-1737-EL-BTX, which is now
pending before the Board.
The following eight criteria are set forth in section 4906.10(A) of the Revised Code and used by the Board in reviewing an application
for a certificate to construct, operate and maintain such a facility:
1. The basis of the need for a facility if the facility is an electric transmission line or a natural gas transmission line;
2. The nature of the probable environmental impact;
3. That the facility represents the minimum adverse environmental impact, considering the state of available technology and
the nature and economics of the various alternatives and other pertinent considerations;
4. In the case of an electric transmission line or generating facility, that the facility is consistent with the regional plans for expansion of the electric power grid of the electric systems serving this state and interconnected utility systems and the facility
will serve the interests of electric system economy and reliability;
5. That the facility will comply with Chapters 3704, 3734, and 6111 of the Revised Code and all rules and standards adopted
under those chapters and under sections 1501.33, 1501.34, and 4561.32 of the Revised Code. In determining whether the
facility will comply with all rules and standards adopted under section 4561.32 of the Revised Code, the Board shall consult
with the Offices of Aviation of the Division of Multi-Modal Planning and Programs of the Department of Transportation
and section 4561.341(4561.134.1) of the Revised Code.
6. That the facility will serve the public interest, convenience and necessity;
7. In addition to the provisions contained in divisions (A)(1) to (6) of this section and rules adopted under those divisions,
what its impact will be on the viability as agricultural land of any land in an existing and agricultural district established
under Chapter 929 of the Revised Code that is located within the site and alternative site of the proposed major utility
facility. Rules adopted to evaluate impact under division (A)(7) of this section shall not require the compilation, creation,
submission or production of any information, document or other data pertaining to land not located within the site and
alternative site.
8. That the facility incorporates maximum feasible water conservation practices as determined by the Board, considering
available technology and the nature in economics of the various alternatives.
Section 4906.07 of the Revised Code provides:
(A) Upon the receipt of an application complying with section 4906.06 of the Revised Code, the Power Siting Board shall
promptly fix a date for a public hearing thereon, not less than sixty nor more than ninety days after such receipt and shall
conclude the proceeding as expeditiously as practicable.
(B) On an application for an amendment of a certificate the Board shall hold a hearing in the same manner as hearing being
held on an application for certificate if the proposed change in the facility would result in a material increase in any environmental impact of the facility or a substantial change in the location of all or a portion of such facility other than as provided
in the alternatives set forth in the application.
(C) The chairman of the Power Siting Board shall cause such application filed with the Board to be investigated and shall, not
less fifteen days prior to the date of any application is set forth hearing, submit a written report to the Board and to the
applicant. A copy of such report shall be made available to any person upon request. Such report shall set forth the nature
of the investigation, and shall contain recommended findings with regard to division (A) of section 4906.10 of the Revised
Code and shall become a part of the record and served upon all parties in the proceeding. The public hearing shall consist
of two parts:
(a) a local public hearing, pursuant to Section 4906.08(C), Revised Code, where the Board shall accept written or oral
testimony from any person commencing on April 21, 2016 at 6:00 p.m., at Wayne Trace Junior-Senior High School,
4915 U.S. 127, Haviland, Ohio 45851; and
(b) an adjudicatory hearing commencing on April 28, 2016 at 10:00 a.m., at the offices of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, 180 E. Broad St., 11th Floor, Hearing Room 11-D, Columbus, OH 43215-3793.
Section 4906.08(C) of the Revised Code provides that the Board shall accept written or oral testimony from any person at the
public hearing, but the right to call and examine witnesses shall be reserved for parties. However, the Board may adopt rules
to exclude repetitive, immaterial or irrelevant testimony.
Petitions to intervene in the adjudicatory hearing will be accepted by the Board up to 30 days following publication of the notice
required by Rule 4906-5-08(C)(1), O.A.C., or by April 4, 2016, whichever is later. However, the Board strongly encourages
interested persons who wish to intervene in the adjudicatory hearing to file their petitions as soon as possible. Petitions
should be addressed to the Ohio Power Siting Board, 180 E. Broad St., Columbus, OH 43215-3793, and site the above-listed
case number.
The above map shows a proposed layout of the facility.

nificant benefits:
Growth potential U.S.
stocks have achieved good
returns for long stretches of
time. Yet in any given year,
markets in other countries can
outperform those in the United
States. By looking beyond our
borders, you can invest in regions with different prospects
for economic growth. For example, in mature economies,
such as those found in Western Europe, you can find investment possibilities in companies that produce high-quality, well-known products. Like
many of the best American
businesses, these foreign companies are likely to remain
competitive far into the future
which means they can be attractive to serious, long-term
Diversification If you
only own domestic investments, and the U.S. financial
markets suffered a downturn,
your portfolio would likely
take a big hit. But if you spread
your dollars between both U.S.
and international investments,
you could lessen the impact of
the U.S.-based volatility. The
U.S. financial markets do not
always move in tandem with
global markets, so when were
down, they might be up. (Keep
in mind, though, that diversification by itself cant guarantee
profit or prevent losses.)
While investing internationally offers some advantages,
it also carries some specific
risks. Here are a few to consider:
Political or economic in-

stability A quick glance at

the headlines can tell you that
different parts of the world
may be undergoing political
or economic turmoil or both
at the same time. This instability can obviously affect the investment outlook within these
Fluctuating exchange
rates The exchange rate between U.S. and foreign currencies fluctuates all the time.
This movement can decrease
or increase the dollar value of
your investment even if its actual price remains unchanged.
Difficulty in obtaining information Financial information about specific companies in emerging markets can
be hard to obtain, which is
why it may be better to invest
using professional managers.
Given these factors, if you
are going to invest internationally, its probably a good
idea to do so with the help
of a financial professional
someone with the resources
and experience to help you
avoid potential pitfalls. But
dont ignore the opportunities
available internationally. The
appropriate amount of international investments in your
portfolio depends on your risk
tolerance, goals and time horizon.
The world is a big place
and exploring international investments could help broaden
your investment horizons.

This is in response to Hurricane Joaquin that hit the Bahamas

Zika virus: Outbreaks in Ohio unlikely, public offered advice

By Sarah Noggle
OSU Extension Educator,
Agriculture and Natural
Paulding County
Zika virus has been an emerging story in the news for the past
several weeks. As with any new
disease, anxiety and fears of the
unknown are common. One of
the roles of the Ohio State University Extension is to provide the
latest research on issues that may
be a concern for Ohioans. The
following article on the Zika virus has been adapted from information from Dr. Pete Permarini,
veterinarian entomologist, OSU
Department of Entomology.
At this time, it is known that
the Zika virus is transmitted
to humans by a certain type of
mosquito. This particular type
of mosquito has to feed on a host
that has the virus before it can
transfer the virus to another human. The yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti, is the specific
mosquito that can carry the Zika
It is also responsible for
spreading the viruses that cause

yellow fever, dengue fever and

chikungunya fever in humans.
This is an invasive insect that is
found throughout Central and
South America and the southern
part of North America (Mexico
and the southern U.S.).
Since it is a tropical mosquito, it does not exist in the colder
temperate climate of Ohio.
The Zika virus was first discovered in the 1940s in primates
of the Zika Forest in Uganda.
The disease has occurred in Africa and Asia, but was not until
recently considered a global
health concern.
It was first detected in the
Western Hemisphere around
2013-14 in an outbreak that occurred in French Polynesia and
Easter Island. The Zika virus
reached Brazil in May 2015. It is
thought that an infected French
Polynesian soccer player may
have brought it to Brazil during
the 2014 World Cup games.
To date, the virus has spread
north to Puerto Rico, the U.S.
Virgin Islands, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Symptoms of the Zika virus

include fever, rash, joint pain,

muscle pain, headache and red
eyes common symptoms for
many diseases. For most people,
the symptoms are mild and last

the defect, but as a precaution,

the U.S. Center for Disease
Control recommends pregnant
women or women who plan a
pregnancy avoid travel to coun-

for a few days to a week.

However, since the virus arrived in Brazil, there has been
an unusually large number of reported cases of microcephaly, a
birth defect in babies that causes
abnormally small heads and incomplete brain development.
There has been no direct evidence that the virus has caused

tries where the Zika virus is

known to occur.
The likelihood of an outbreak
of Zika virus in Ohio is very
low. There have been a few reported cases of individuals with
the Zika virus in Ohio, but the
infection occurred while visiting
countries with the disease.
The virus has not been detect-

ed in any U.S. mosquito populations. The virus would have to be

become adapted to mosquitoes
in Ohio before it would become
a concern. The current mosquito
carrier, the yellow fever mosquito, is not found in Ohio.
There is a closely related species called the Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus, which occurs
in Ohio and throughout much of
the eastern U.S. It is not a common mosquito in the state, but it is
unknown at this time whether the
Asian tiger mosquito could be an
effective future carrier.
However, at this time Zika
viral outbreaks in Ohio would
be remote since the virus would
have to become established in
an Ohio mosquito population,
which are thought not to be effective carriers, and then before it
entered that mosquito population,
a mosquito would have to feed on
an individual that has the virus.
It is still recommended that
Ohioans take steps to avoid being bitten by a mosquito since
there are other diseases that they
may get from mosquitoes, such
as West Nile and La Crosse vi-

These steps would include
the use of insect repellants, wear
long sleeves and long pants, and
eliminate potential mosquito
breeding grounds near residences. Keep gutters and downspout
clean of debris, changing the
water in bird baths, outside pet
water bowls, rain barrels, and
draining water from tires stored
outside are all mosquito breeding sites.
Even though the Zika virus is
not a concern in Ohio this year, it
would still be a good idea during
spring cleaning activities to fix
window and door screens and
remove items that may allow
water to collect for mosquito

Huge tracks have been placed on county property located along County Road 192 in Crane
Township, disrupting farming practices. Efforts to more strictly patrol the area are under way.

County land being damaged

along County Road 192
Feature Writer
Paulding County commissioners said on Monday morning
that they are on the verge of
taking stringent steps against
perpetrators who have been
trashing county property along
Road 192 in Crane Township
north of the Maumee River.
Commissioner Roy Klopfenstein said that someone has
been throwing major deposits
of trash in the field belonging to the county and into the
Eaton Farm Cemetery, located north of the river. In some
cases, those scanning the
area have found furniture, including a large sofa, that was
tossed into the field.
In addition, various vehicles, including four-wheel
drives and pickups, have been
driving through the field,
farmed by a contracted rent-

er, forming large tracks in the

field. In some cases, the vehicles have even driven through
the cemetery, causing deep
ruts and destroying sections of
It makes it extremely difficult to mow and maintain
the cemetery with that kind of
damage, said Klopfenstein.
The commissioner said that
the county board doesnt want
to point fingers at any particular individual or group, but
Sheriff Jason Landers has
tightened up his effort at patrolling the area in search of
what is going on.
Make no mistake about it,
those who are apprehended
will be fully charged and punished according to the laws
protecting the property, noted
Commissioner Tony Zartman.
There is no way that this is
going to be tolerated in any
That renter is planting and
farming this land in good faith.
These destructive attempts are
ruining the farmers efforts
and cutting back on the opportunity to have a successful harvest in that land, said
Klopfenstein. We will not
stand for this.

All proceeds benefit the hospital

The Paulding County Emergency Management Agency held a Firefighting Foam Operations
Class on Saturday. Fifteen firefighters from five fire departments in the county participated in the
class. Some of the topics throughout the morning session included the different types of foams
and their uses, application techniques to be used for vapor suppression of flammable liquids or
fighting flammable liquid fires. The class learned of additional resources in Paulding County and
the surrounding areas. Those fire departments that participated went over their foam equipment
and trouble shot the typical issues that occur at an incident. After lunch, the firefighters went outside and flowed training foam that was purchased by the Paulding County LEPC. R&B Fabrication
for provided lunch for the class. Here Cecil/Crane Township Fire Department provided a pumper
for the class and the EMA regional foam trailer was brought over from Defiance County EMA.

Klopfenstein urged anyone noting suspicious activity

in that area to take pictures,
copy license plates, do anything necessary to assist in
identifying the individual and
turn their information into the
Paulding County Sheriffs Office.
We have lots of ideas in
our minds right now. Obviously were not very happy
about this, said Klopfenstein.
Weve even considered cutting back on hunting permits,
issuing permits on a different
basis or shutting off hunting
altogether in these areas.
We hate to punish everybody because a few people
go back there, commented
Klopfenstein. This is very
disrespectful and uncalled
Commissioners noted that
105 hunting permits had been
issued in the area last year.
There are a lot of good
people in this county; many of
them help pick things up and
keep the ground clean. Many
are enjoying these grounds
in a very appropriate way. It
would be very sad to see a few
ruin it for everyone, noted

The Oakwood Volunteer Fire Department recently received a generous donation from the Cooper Family Foundation. The funds were used to purchase several sets of new turnout gear that
will greatly improve the safety of the firefighters. Dianne Cooper of The Cooper Family Foundation

however, water and sewer infrastructure is still a major component of the
RCAP also offers grant funded and
low-cost services for rural communities.
It helps with project planning, engineer

Zielke also included a copy of the
helpful contact information for villages report, which can be utilized by
mayors as a handy reference.
Chris Collier, Black Swamp Conservancy, presented information regarding
the acquisition of property by the Black
Swamp Conservancy (see resolution
below). The goal is to provide recreational activity (fishing, boating, picnicking, etc.) while preserving the land.
Collier emphasized that the local Park
District Board would be taking care of
the day-to-day operations of the property once it has been acquired.
Larry Colley, fair board, met with
the commissioners to discuss the recent
filling activity at the fairgrounds. He
reported the land being filled is not in
the flood plain.
Colley announced an upcoming

event at the fairgrounds on May 6 and

7. He then discussed the high electric
bill at the fairgrounds and the rental of
the grounds and its various buildings.
All agreed there needs to be communication and coordination between the fair
board and the commissioners office.
County Auditor Claudia Fickel - The
commissioners reviewed the General
Fund Revenue and Expense reports presented by Fickel.
She also presented the treasurers report, noting a 6% delinquent rate for first
half (2015, pay 2016) real estate taxes.
Fickel reported dog tag sales are about
the same as 2015. Cybersecurity and
credit card policies were also discussed.
Don Foltz, Foltz Insurance Agency,
presented a copy of an e-mail from John
Brownlee, CORSA risk manager, stating that Paulding County will receive
100% of the incentive credit for the
2015-2016 program year in the amount
of $4,813. He noted the credit will be
applied to the 2016-2017 program year
The commissioners commended
Foltz for his diligent work in completing the requirements to qualify for the
incentive credit. As our local insurance
agent, Foltz has been instrumental in
working with CORSA, attending training session and meetings as required.
The commissioners agreed to appoint

Colley encouraged anyone interested
in donating to the cause, suggesting a
veteran, or being a guardian, to stop in
at the Paulding-Putnam office, look on
the website, or call.
A motion was made by Klopfenstein
to go into executive session at 8:10 a.m.

Steve Colley, Paulding-Putnam Electric Co-op, met with the commissioners
to introduce the Honor Flight program.
The program allows for US veterans
to visit Washington, D.C. and its war
memorials for a day. The employees of
Paulding-Putnam Electric Co-op have
decided to work towards sponsoring an
Honor Flight.
Honor Flights fly from the Fort
Wayne International Airport directly to
Washington, D.C. The flight is free to
US veterans. Each veteran must have
a guardian to accompany them on
their flight. Guardians pay for themselves. Upon the flights return to Fort
Waynes airport, the veterans enjoy
being welcomed back by family, friends
and neighbors.
Colley noted it costs approximately
$70,000 per flight. He stated flights are
usually scheduled in spring and fall for
best weather conditions. Colley noted
there are 450 veterans on the waiting
list. He emphasized that World War II
and Korean veterans are reaching the
age to where time is of the essence. He

Tate Church, Westin Sinn, Nick Durre, Arlyn Cooper, Scott Wenninger with mentor Trent Church are
members of the Wayne Trace High School robotics team, Raider Robotics. They have become the first
such team to represent Paulding County in semi-regional national competition coming up in Iowa.

Raider Robotics team advances to

semi-regional national competition
Raider Robotics has won the
West Virginia State Championship Robotic Competition tournament held this past Saturday in
Chapmanville, W.Va. In addition
to winning the tournament, the
team also received the Rockwell
Collins Innovate award.
The team has now qualified to
participate in the super-regional
robotic competition held in March
17-19 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
The Innovate award celebrates a team that not only thinks
outside the box, but also has the
ingenuity and inventiveness to
make their designs come to life. It
is given to the team that has most
innovative and creative robot design solution.
Raider Robotics was also chosen to receive the runner- up Inspire award.
Raider Robotics is the very first
FTC Robotics Team to represent
Paulding County. The team consists of four Wayne Trace High
School seniors and one sophomore who have a love for science
and engineering technology.

The team consists of Arlyn

Cooper, Scott Wenninger, Trent
Church, Nick Durre, Westin Sinn,
and college mentor Tate Church.
Their team is part of a non-profit
worldwide organization called
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology).
The mission of FIRST is to inspire
young people to be science and
technology leaders. The founder of
FIRST believes that one day some
of these very young people will find
cures to cancer, Alzheimers, and
design devices to help move science, engineering, and technology
forward for the world.
Each season opens in September when the rules for the years
competition are released. At the
release, approximately 5,100
teams (500,000 individuals) from
all over the world learn the rules
for what the robot that they will
build must be able to do, and what
materials can be used to build it.
Many teams meet untold hours
to begin designing their robot.
They enter robot competitions in
winter and spring in an attempt to
qualify to participate in semi-re-

gionals with the ultimate goal is to

qualify to participate in the world
The Raider Robotics team
met a major hurdle when their
team captain, Trent Church was
diagnosed this past fall with an
inoperable brain tumor. He was
transferred to Houston for several
months for treatment. Despite
these obstacles, this pioneer team
for Paulding County has designed
and built a very competitive robot
and continues to persevere in consistently improving their robot.
They are excited to advance
to semi-regionals in Cedar Rapids, said coach Suzanne Cooper.
This is an outstanding accomplishment for a first-year team.
The team is currently sponsored by Cooper Farms, R&B
Fabrications, Alliance Automation, Igus and Solidworks.
The team is currently fund
raising for their Iowa trip. Anyone interested in helping sponsor
this team in their future endeavors, should feel free to contact the
team coach Suzanne Cooper at

Spencerville ends Raider season at district semi
LIMA Four seniors saw their careers
come to a close on Thursday evening as
the Wayne Trace boys basketball team
fell to Spencerville 64-53 in Division III
district semifinal action at Lima Senior
High School.
The quartet helped lead the Raiders to
an 85-17 record over the past four seasons (.833 winning percentage) as well
as four Green Meadows Conference
championships, three sectional championships, two district championship, one
regional championship and a final four
berth their junior year.
It is a group that has a lot to be proud
of despite the disappointing ending last
What a great group of seniors, commented the Raider mentor. They have
played in regionals two years, a district
tournament and at state. They have just
been a tremendous group to work with
and are great kids.
Shepherd totaled 18 points and four
rebounds, hitting 9 of 11 shots from the
field. Vest chipped in eight points while
also recording two rebounds and one
assist. Miller added seven markers and
added five assists, two steals and two rebounds. Speice pitched in two points and
a rebound for the Raiders, who close the
season at 17-8.
In Thursdays game, Wayne Trace was
just unable to get enough defensive stops

to drop the contest.

They were very good, commented
Raider head coach Jim Linder. It just
seemed like we couldnt get a defensive
stop when we needed it, especially there
late in the game. They had a lot of offensive weapons and people who could
drive to the basket and that was a tough
matchup for us.
Meanwhile, the Bearcats shut down
the Raider offense over the final 4:37 of
the contest, limiting Wayne Trace to two
points down the stretch.
The big shot of the game came with
Spencerville on top 52-51 as Zach
Goecke hit a 3-pointer at the 2:04 mark
to put the Bearcats in front 55-51. The
shot came as a result of a Bearcat offensive rebound and turned the tide in the
Spencerville favor.
Wayne Trace would never recover
from that point on.
We challenged the guys to get one
stop, noted Bearcat head coach Kevin
Sensabaugh following the contest. It is
something we work on in practice and
we felt if we could get one stop and then
score after it, it would be big. We finally
did that in the fourth quarter.
Two free throws by Goecke made it
57-51 before a Cole Shepherd basket
got Wayne Trace within 57-53 with 1:06
However, Wayne Trace would not
score again and Spencerville closed out
the contest by hitting seven of eight free

throws to seal the victory.

Another key area in the second half
was rebounding. The Bearcats doubled
up Wayne Trace 14-7 in the second half,
including six offensive rebounds, in winning the battle 27-23 overall.
Rebounding was big, Linder added. They were bigger, more physical
than we were at every spot on the floor.
It seemed like they got every loose ball
For three quarters, the game was almost as tight as it could be.
Neither team led by more than four
points in the first three periods. Wayne
Trace posted a 10-6 advantage midway
through the opening quarter while Spencerville held a 43-39 advantage with
1:10 left in the third quarter.
However, the Raiders closed the gap
as Ethan Linder hit one of two foul shots
with 43 seconds left in the quarter.
After a Dakota Prichard foul shot
pushed the margin back to 44-40, Linder
converted an old-fashioned 3-point play
with two ticks left on the clock to get
Wayne Trace within 44-43 after three
Goecke led Spencerville with 17
points while Mason Nourse added 16
points and five assists. Dakota Prichard
chipped in 14 for the Bearcats. Prichard
Jim Bowers/Paulding County Progress
and Bailey Croft also posted nine and
Playing in his final game as a Raider, Alec Vest #32 tries to
eight rebounds, respectively.
Linder aided the Raider cause with 15 get a fourth period score as Wayne Trace was eliminated from
tournament play by a big physical Spencerville team 64-53.
points, six assists and six rebounds.

Wayne Trace duo comes home to heros welcome

COLUMBUS For George Clemens IV and Ruger Goeltzenleuchter, the clock was nearing midnight
as the two Wayne Trace wrestlers
approached the school parking lot
on Saturday night. The clock would
strike 12, but the two wouldnt have
to worry about waking up from a
dream what was happening was real
no make believe tonight.
They were not alone as the two
were perched on the Grover Hill fire
truck as they were escorted from Grover Hill to the school along with several additional units as well as 20 plus
cars and more than 50 fans.
On a cold March night, those
who gathered near the entrance of
the school were there to honor their

friends, classmates and in a way

their heroes. Both young men had
spent three days representing their
school, their community, their families and both came home winners.
Clemens had just capped off a stellar season with a state title in the 126
weight bracket. Clemens finished his
senior season 50-0, becoming the
first Paulding County wrestler to be
crowned champion.
For Goeltzenleuchter, a junior who
finished his junior season with a superb 48-5 record, will return next year
with high aspirations for a state title.
He took fifth place at 120.
Goeltzenleuchter, who lost to Isaac
Elliott from Massillon Tuslaw in his
second match continued through the
consolation bracket to eventually
have the opportunity to wrestle Elliott

With fifth place in the balance, the
Raider junior dug down a little deeper
and defeated Elliott 11-9 to garner a
top five finish.
Standing under the dark sky after
the long journey back from Columbus, Ruger walked among the gathered crowd receiving congratulatory
remarks. The soft spoken Goeltzenleuchter, wearing a dark blue hoodie was appreciative to all those who
came out to the mini-celebration.
It was a tough three days. When
I dropped the match to Elliott, I was
really upset with myself. I wasnt very
happy with the way I came out and
wrestled. So, having another opportunity to wrestle him turned out really
well for me, he said.
With the wrestling season now over

and a fifth place finish to his credit,

Ruger was asked what his plans were
for Sunday. The competitor wasted
no time and quickly answered, Practice. Wrestling is what I work on year
round and tomorrow will be no different.
Clemens, who wrestled just four
matches, ended his career at 187-15.
He was 46-3 as a freshman before following that up with a 47-5 record as
a sophomore. A year ago, he finished
44-7 and took sixth in the state tournament to set up this years tremendous
With the Wayne Trace faithful
surrounding their wrestling winners, many wanted to hear from their
Clemens said, Im tired. Its been
a long weekend, but I want to thank

the fans for all their support. The thing

that I will remember the most about
this experience is not that I won the
championship but I will always recall
how after winning, witnessing my dad
crying while standing in the hallway.
Prior to everyone walking back to
their vehicles, coach George Clemens
thanked everyone including fans, parents and school staff for their support.
Today we set the bar a little higher
with our wrestling program. Having
two from Wayne Trace finish in the
top five is an amazing thing. Our program will continue to get better and
it begins now with Ruger. We have
some younger kids in the program
who can also make it to Columbus
and if they work hard like these two
have done then they can do it, concluded Clemens.

VAN WERT As part of the

Ohio State Highway Patrols
ongoing effort to contribute to
a safer Ohio, troopers are continuing their increased focus on
impaired driving enforcement
and these efforts are paying off.
For the fourth year in a row,
troopers removed well over
24,000 impaired drivers from
Ohio roadways.
OVI-related crashes accounted for 35 percent of all
fatal crashes in Ohio in 2015,
a percentage that has remained
steady for the past 3 years.
There were 14,227 OVI-related crashes on Ohio roadways, killing 395 and injuring
8,478. Speed was a contributing factor in 60 percent of all
OVI-related crashes. Of drivers
considered at-fault in OVI-related crashes, 54 percent were
in their 20s and 30s, and 71
percent were male.
We need motorists to commit to keeping our roads safe
by planning ahead to designate
a driver and insisting that everyone in the vehicle is buckled up, said Lt. Tim Grigsby.

battle against impaired driving

and family to do the same.

Ethan has been a three-year

percent inside the 3-point arc

was second on the team in offensive rebounds with 41 and
recorded a team-high 103 defensive rebounds.
He is a complete player,

much more than score for us. It

Spotlight on Antwerp
United Methodist Church

Progress Staff Writer
ANTWERP Established
in the mid 1840s the Antwerp
United Methodist Church continues to have a presence and a
purpose in the community it has
called home for some 175 years.
Lead pastor, Mike Schneider
has served the Paulding County
church for nearly 11 years while
being in pastoral ministry for 23
This is my fourth appointment
and when I first came to Antwerp
I thought it was a mistake. I came
kicking and screaming thinking
this was not the place for me.
However, after being here over
ten years, I love the community,
its people and the church, confessed Schneider.

The church, located at 202

East River Street averages 120130 each Sunday and for most
of the year offers contemporary
worship at 8:30 a.m. and a traditional service at 10:30 with Sunday school sandwiched between
the two services.
There are times when we
have just one service. Usually
during holidays, Easter, Palm
Sunday, advent, and other special occasions we will have just
one service at 10 with Sunday
school at 9 a.m. The one service
concept promotes connectivity
and fellowship. It brings us together and I think that is important, said Schneider.
The church has a presence
in the Antwerp community including the local food pantry


sponsored by the Antwerp Area

Ministerial Association. Also, as
a way of community outreach,
the church offers a free meal
each Thursday from 4:30-6:30
p.m. The idea for the meal was
presented to the church and a
group of three or four dedicated
women prepare the meal and its
been a great opportunity for the
The meal is free of charge
and we have people who come
each week to not only enjoy the
meal but it allows them to stretch
their resources when funds are
sometimes limited. The setting
allows people to visit and get
better acquainted, said Pastor

Scripture of the Week:

In the New Testament, John 6:35, Jesus declared, I am the
bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry ...

The other evening I went

to bed early. I was tired and
slept good all night until
about 4 a.m. When I woke
up, I laid there for about
45 minutes and realized
that I wasnt going back to
sleep so I got up, had a cup
of coffee, while watching
It was sometime after 5
a.m. that I felt hungry and
had a bowl of cereal. My
hunger was no longer and it
was time to watch the local
news, check for school delays or closings and get the
day started.
My kind of hunger is
one kind that is easily taken care of with a trip to the
kitchen even at 5 a.m.
There is another kind of
physical hunger, more severe than what I encountered, but a hunger that is
felt around the world and is
very real.
The United Nations estimates that up to a billion
people in the world struggle
with food insecurity. Thats
about one out of every seven people.
But a different kind of
hunger is even more prevalent: spiritual emptiness
and insecurity that has no
boundaries. It extends from
the poor to the rich, and
from the young to the old.
Of course, exact statistics on spiritual hunger
are impossible to come
by. But its safe to assume
that the number of those
who are spiritually hungry
and thirsty in this world is

much higher than a billion.

And when our stomachs are
full, our spiritual emptiness
often becomes even more
Jesus pointed to himself as the ultimate bread
of life, and he promised
living water for all who
would believe in him.
In John 4:10 Jesus responds, if you knew the
gift of God and who it is
that asks you for a drink,
you would have asked him
and he would have given
you living water.
Verse 14 says, but whoever drinks the water I
give them will never thirst.
Indeed, the water I give
them will become in them a
spring of water welling up
to eternal life.
John 7:38 ... Whoever
believes in me, as Scripture
has said, rivers of living
water will flow from within
In the Middle East of
that day, it was impossible
to imagine a meal without
a good loaf of bread. Bread
was easy to keep and transport. And fresh water was
precious and often scarce
in the desert-like climate of
the Middle East.
Jesus graciously invited
his listeners to come to him
and satisfy their spiritual
Please come to Jesus if
you struggle with hunger
and thirst in your heart! He
alone can satisfy whether
its 5 a.m. or 5 p.m. or any
other time.

Continued from Page 5B
Currently the church is actively involved in several projects according to Pastor Schneider. On March 19, the church
will host a Mom-2-Mom Sale
from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. A fundraiser
for church camp, the idea is for
moms to set up booths in order
to sell items that appeal to other
moms. Admission is just a dollar
and will also include a bake sale.
This is an opportunity for
moms to pick up items at a good
price. Its a win-win situation
for everyone, said Schneider.
During Easter week the
church will have a 10 a.m. service on Palm Sunday followed

by a Passover seder meal on

Maundy Thursday (March 24)
at 7 p.m.
The community Good Friday
service will be at 1 p.m. at the
Antwerp Community Church.
Prior to the Easter Sunday
activities, the Antwerp United
Methodist Church will offer to
the children an Easter egg hunt
at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
Resurrection Sunday, March
27, the church will begin with
a sunrise service at 7:30 a.m.
followed by a breakfast at 8:15
a.m. Donations will be accepted
for the breakfast and will be
used towards the summer camp

program. One worship service

will be held at 10 a.m.
Schneider and his wife Kimberly have four children. David
and his wife Abby live south of
Antwerp while daughter Lydia
is married to Nathan and live in
Indiana where Nathan attends
Bethel College. Son Aaron is a
sophomore at Kent State with
their youngest, Hannah is a junior at Antwerp High School.
The church has a wide range
of ages attending with programming offered to the youth each
Wednesday during the school
year from 6 - 7:30 p.m. The
Midweek Adventure is offered


to children age three through

grade four. Route 56 is geared
toward students in fifth and
sixth grade. Bible learning and
service projects are on their
agenda throughout the year.
The third youth group, still in
the planning stage, is for the
junior and senior high age and
will focus on community and
service projects as well.
There is a lot going on here
at Antwerp United Methodist
Church. We are a friendly congregation that looks forward to
welcoming those who desire a
church to attend, concluded
Pastor Schneider.
