By Joyce L. Alig, Mercer County Historian The old corner store, at the northeast corner of State Route 49 and Saint Anthony Road, at Saint Anthony of Padua held quite a history. The Lawrence Kremer Store closed in 1956, after a long history of service to rural Washington Township citizens. The earliest history of the General Store dates to the 1880’s. The General Store was not only owned by A. Wellman, but also had the first Padua Post Office, 3 Miles North of Fort Recovery, Ohio on Rte. 49 which was established July 27, 9AM-7PM DAILY • 419-375-2304 1882, and closed August 31, 1903. This Padua U.S. Post Office was See Our Ad, Page 2 named after the Church, Saint Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, which took its name from the Church in Italy. The first Postmaster, Jacob Schindler, held the office for one month, from July 27, 1882 until August 25, 1882, when Anthony Wellman was appointed Postmaster. Anthony Wellman Page 9 owned the store, and thus hosted the Padua Post Office in his store.

By: Betty Lou Denney/Hall When we think of vacations most of us think of relaxing in the warm sun, good food and most of all no work. Elmer and Julie Heitkamp chose a different vacation this year. At their daughter, Deb Crouch’s, suggestion, they went to Haiti for ten days to work in a Christian Mission. Their two grandchildren, Bryant and Abby, also went for their third time. The North Western Haiti Christian Mission has been in operation for the last thirty years. They are an independent Christian Church organization dedicated to partner with indigenous churches to help bring people of Haiti out of spiritual, physical and social poverty while demonstrating God’s love for all people. They do this through various programs such as primary schools, feeding projects, orphanages, bible colleges and agricultural development. NWHC Mission is the largest employer in the Zone and one of the largest ministries in Haiti. Elmer Heitkamp, a retired carpenter from the Saint Anthony area, was a real blessing. His ability to drive a skid loader sped up the project. The natives had been carrying stone and gravel by hand. Elmer used the skid loader to move the pile. This earned him his nickname “Iron Man.” Elmer also made window shutters. The shutters are used as functional doors to keep out rain, not decoration. Fixing an air conditioner was a rather easy job for Elmer when he discovered that they did not have it plugged into the electric circuit. Finding a cot between two windows, Elmer was able to spend the night rather comfortably while he rested from the days labors. The trip from Port – de – Paix, where they arrived, to their destination of the NWHC Mission at Saint Louis –duNord was not so pleasant. It was a long, bumpy bus ride in the heat that took about 6 ½ hours. Julie, her daughter and grandchildren flew in by airplane. Julie spent her time at the Mission sweeping floors, cleaning and interacting with childrenher favorite part. She spent one day in the pharmacy sorting out and discarding “outdated” needles. One day she took a break and went on a three hour walk to see the largest tree in the area. Julie, her daughter and grandchildren spent the night outside in a tent. The Heitkamps’s daughter, Deb, sponsors a child from the mission. Abby and Bryant have also started contributing to foster a child. The infants stay at the mission till they are 4 years old. They are then moved to the orphanage several hours away. Water is brought into the orphanage as there is no well at this time. At one point they had to go for 3 or 4 days without water. Julie commented that a drill the length of a semi truck is on the way to drill a well. Food consisted of many rice dishes that included chicken. The food was very spicy and was not a favorite of Julie’s. Elmer ate about half of her food that she couldn’t eat and lost five pounds. Julie didn’t lose any weight. Coffee was served before breakfast. One morning she commented that they were served a plain white cake for breakfast. Canned fruit and oatmeal were also on the menu for breakfasts. They would like to thank the Saint Anthony Dinner Theatre committee for donating $200 to the project. They purchased and distributed 190 composition books to the schools with about 40 of the books being distributed to the street people. Julie purchased shoes from the Senior Citizens garage sale to take for the mission. She would like to thank the Senior Citizens for the discount on the shoes. The leaders of the trip were the Hippley’s from the Rockford area. They take a group every other year to Haiti. They lived and worked at the mission for three years. Mr. Hippley is a pharmacist and worked in the pharmacy while they were there.

Eastern Equine Encephalitis confirmed in Mercer county horses
REYNOLDSBURG – The Ohio Department of Agriculture confirmed cases of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in two horses that died on a farm in Mercer County. This is the first incident of EEE in Ohio since an outbreak in 1991 in Wayne and Holmes counties. At this time, there are no known human illnesses associated with this confirmation. Eastern Equine Encephalitis is caused by a virus that can infect birds, horses and humans. It is transmitted by mosquitoes, and outbreaks typically occur in late summer and early fall
The interior view of Lawrence Kremer’s Store, dated July 1956, just before the store closed. After Church on Sunday morning, people would come to this store. The children would ask for a cold bottle of pop from the cooler. The old Counter, where Lawrence Kremer did business in his store, is now in the home of Lawrence’s grandson, Rick Kremer, son of Tom. Rick lives about a mile south of Ansonia, on St. Rt. 118. The original counter was refinished, and makes an attractive piece of furniture for Rick and his family. In 1956, this old store closed when Tom Kremer built his new Grocery on the southeast corner of the intersection. the area. Joyce L. Alig, President of the Mercer County Historical Society, written a new book: “Passport to History: Washington Township; Erastus, Macedon, Saint Anthony of Padua, Wabash, and Bethel Corners.” This books serves as a historical reference book to all Washington Township Citizens, as well as Mercer Countians, and all of the Tourists who request historical research, and want to visit this area.

when mosquitoes are most abundant. Infected horses could experience symptoms including paralysis, impaired vision, difficulty swallowing, hanging their heads and grinding their teeth. An effective equine vaccine exists for EEE. Typically, infected horses with clinical symptoms die within three to five days after onset of clinical signs. There is no treatment for EEE aside from supportive care. EEE infection is rare in humans, but when it does avoid See EQUINE, Page 10
a well dug in memory of Jorden Diller (Marion Local teen who died in a car crash) was a memorable event. From there they were on to Plaissance, where they stayed in Father Jose rectory. A village is being built to provide homes. The project is being directed by Linda Thieman’s brother Ben, with his “One Brick at a Time Project”. The group helped carry wood for a construction project on the sixth day of the trip. To see what the local life was like, they spent some time with a local family. That evening the church had a dance for the kids and a few of the local youth. On the seventh day, the youth in the group had an opportunity to sing at a mass in Plaissance. The eighth day was spent at Jacmel at the Trinity House orphanage. The boys are going to start a bakery business. Minimal damage has been felt here but people still are afraid of being inside a building. The group spent the last day of the trip riding a Tap Tap to the airport for their return trip home. When asked about the food, Dr. Hosbach said they ate rice dishes and a lot of fresh fruit such as pineapple, bananas and coconuts. Haiti is the first republic in the world to have been led by a person of African descent: JeanJaques Dessalines. Notably, it is Dessalines’ victory over Rochambeau, in Veriecues, that forced Napoleon to abandon his bid for the control of Louisana and eventually, the rest of the “New World.” Therefore, weren’t it for Dessalines and his troop of freed slaves of African origin, the United States of America would most likely not be what they are today. Christopher Columbus stopped in Haiti before he reached the shores of North America, and he described it as heaven.
black republic in the western hemisphere. During the nineteenth century, Haiti developed into two worlds; a tiny minority of mulattos (light skinned blacks who are the products of intermarriage) and the majority, who were former slaves. The elite mulattos mostly lived in towns and controlled the government, commerce and military. The former slaves lived in the countryside farming small plots of land. The race and class tension of today has its roots in Haiti’s colonial past and its early development as a republic. Eighty percent of the rural population continues to live below poverty level and more than 70 percent of the preschool children suffer malnutrition. At the same time, government officials, army officers and business owners live in luxurious hillside villas with fountains and swimming pools. In the early 1980’s, Haiti became known as the poorest country in the western hemisphere. The ever-deepening impoverishment of the Haitian masses led to further discontent and uprisings. The United States feared losing control of the situation and stepped in, facilitating Jean Claude Duvalier’s departure to France in 1986. The period following was marked by bloodshed and intense grassroots organizing. Peasants, trade unions, church and human rights groups, women and youth brought about the victory of Jean Bertrand Aristide as president in 1990. The Aristide government made advances in public health and education and frightened many of the traditional elite and the military and U.S. supporters. This led to the September 30, 1991, coup d’etat that ousted Aristide. Three years of brutal military dictatorship followed, in which popular leaders were persecuted and more than 4,000 people killed. Aristide returned to Haiti as president on October 14, 1994, bringing back hope. On January 12, 2010 the worst earthquake in the history of Haiti occurred in Port-auPrince. Extensive damage happened in Jacmel and the coastal lines — killing over 200,000 people.

“50 years at the County Museum, in preparation for the 100th Anniversary Time Capsule in 2059” I did some research on the Internet looking for a sample ballot to check if they will list the incumbents for the election. As far as I could find they will not list them on the ballot. But, I did find that you will be able to print out a copy of the ballot before going to the poles to vote. I would suggest that you all do that so you don’t forget just how you want to vote. Remember all those bills suggested and passed by those people in Congress so you don’t forget. Speaking of the election I was talking with some friends and some seem to think they don’t have the foggiest idea of whom to vote for in the office of the Governor. One person said it seems like the lesser of two evils. Another said she didn’t think she would vote for either of the candidates. She didn’t think either would be good for the State of Ohio. I think I am going to have to research that election for Governor very carefully. I have to “practice what I preach”. I certainly don’t want to mess up this coming election. I would imagine there are lots of candidates out there running for re-election that are plenty worried about the upcoming election. It seems there are several Democrats that are “abandoning ship” and losing all connections with the President. It would seem to me that would be a wise thing to do since his approval rating continues to drop in the polls. I guess we will all have to wait and see just what does happen. That’s My Opinion.....What’s Yours?? September 26, Sunday afternoon, 1:00 – 4:00, the Historical Society will be accepting the last of the letters, to add to the contents of the Time Capsule, celebrating 50 years at the Mercer County Historical Museum. The Passport to History book about Washington Township will be available to the public. Yes, the Mercer County Historical Society, Inc., is alive and well. In fact, the Historical Society is preparing to enter the 51st year of Preserving Mercer County History and Educating the Public about that history. The Society is putting together the contents of the Time Capsule, to let Mercer County Citizens in 2059, know what the Society was about, in its first 50 years. The book, “Mercer County, Ohio’s Oldest Family Businesses & Mercer County Historical Society, Inc., Providing Economic & Cultural Development, Our Past, Our Present, and Our Future,” will be placed in the 2059 Time Capsule. This book provides history of the oldest Family Businesses. This book also provides history of the last 50 years of the Mercer County Historical Society, in caring for the County Museum, and in hosting programs, tours, writing books, helping local Government Elected Officials, and serving the public.

For safety, wash hands properly, often
After attending a session at a nutrition site over the summer, my 6-year-old daughter told me I was washing my hands wrong and proceeded to show me the “right” way to do it. Is it really necessary to be so elaborate when washing your hands?
on the palm-side area of your hands — be sure to use soap on the backs of your hands (up to the wrists), between the fingers and under your fingernails. Using soap is a given, or at least it should be. The best thing about soap is that it makes your hands slippery, which allows dirt and microbes to wash away under the running water. Anti-bacterial soaps aren’t necessary, and, in fact, may in the long run be harmful because if used too often, they could allow bacteria to become resistant to the anti-microbial properties in the soap. Thankfully, a recently released study by the American Society for Microbiology and the American Cleaning Institute suggests that people are washing their hands more often. Researchers observed the behavior of 6,076 adults in public restrooms and reported that 85 percent washed their hands after going to the bathroom — up from 77 percent in 2007. But the question remains on whether people are doing it right. A basic tutorial illustrating proper handwashing techniques is available online at Ohio State University’s new food safety website at http://foodsafety.osu.edu (click “For Consumers” and “Keep Your Hands Clean.”) Also, the CDC offers guidelines at its “Clean Hands Save Lives” website at http://www.cdc.gov/cleanhands. Chow Line is a service of Ohio State University Extension and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center. Send questions to Chow Line, c/o Martha Filipic, 2021 Coffey Road, Columbus, OH, 43210-1044, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s good to know your daughter strives to be a good student of personal hygiene. While it’s not clear from your question exactly how she is telling you to wash your hands, her basic message is on target — most people don’t spend enough time or attention when handwashing to do an effective job. If we did it right, public health authorities say, we could make major strides in reducing the number of illnesses caused by infectious disease and food-borne pathogens. In fact, Ohio State University research, reported back in 2001, determined that proper handwashing is the best way to prevent food-borne disease. The first thing to consider is time. Experts say it takes at least 20 seconds to wash hands properly. That may not sound like it’s very long, but time yourself next time — you’ll probably be surprised. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends singing the “Happy Birthday” song — twice — while you’re washing your hands to reach 20 seconds. The second thing to consider is surface area. Don’t just concentrate

Isn't the sunshine nice to see. And now in a couple days of this the farmers will be in the fields practically all day and night. From what I have seen there is some corn coming up in those fields that the farmers were lucky enough to have gotten the seed in the ground before these last two rains. Like it says, "all good things come to those who wait." Or something like that. Most of those philosophers never tried to run a farm.

Due to steadily decreasing funding since the early 2000s, and especially since the huge drop in state revenue from the attempt to balance the state budget in July 2009 and the fact that 97% of library funding comes from the state, the Rockford Carnegie Library will be placing a 1 mill levy on the November ballot. If the levy passes, the money will be used to purchase materials including books, magazines and DVDs, do basic building maintenance and purchase operating supplies needed. If any one would like to help the Friends of the Library with financial support to promote the levy, please send a check to: Friends of the Rockford Carnegie Library, PO Box 330, Rockford, OH 45882.

Author of Blacksnake’s Path to appear at Fort Recovery Museum
On Sunday, September 26, visitors to the Fort Recovery State Museum are in for a real treat. Speaking will be William Heath the noted author of Blacksnake’s Path, The True Adventures of William Wells, a true-to-life novel of this unsung hero of American history. Blacksnake’s Path recreates an entire period (1779-1812) showing how the Indians lived, fought for their homeland and dealt with defeat. Because Wells was always a man in the middle, moving between two cultures, the novel also captures the lives of settlers who claimed lands north of the Ohio River. The public is invited to attend the 3:00 presentation by Heath and hear first-hand the story of William Wells – the amazing young man who fought in both battles – first on the side of the Natives in the 1791 Battle on the Banks of the Wabash (The St. Clair Massacre) and second,

In honor of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, the American Cancer Society encourages men to discuss the benefits and risks of prostate cancer screening with their doctors.

An estimated 217,730 new cases of prostate cancer will occur in the United States during 2010, including 7,700 new cases in Ohio. Research still has not shown a definitive cause for prostate cancer, but there are many risk factors associated with the disease

These guidelines recommend that asymptomatic men who have at least a 10-year life expectancy have an opportunity to make an informed decision with their health care provider about whether to be screened for prostate cancer after receiving information about the uncertainties, risks, and potential benefits associated with prostate cancer screening. Screening should not occur without an informed decision-making process. Men at average risk should

Letter to the Editor
on behalf of the coldwater community Picnic Association, i would like to thank everyone who volunteered their time, talent, and support in making this another successful year. With support from coldwater and all of the surrounding communities, we were able to have a net profit of approximately $67,000 for our two day event! the proceeds will be invested directly back into the coldwater memorial Park and coldwater Public library, as well as the completion of the new depot which is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year. Special recognition to the officers and trustees. Without your timeless dedication, this picnic could not happen. A huge thank you to all the committee chairpersons and
co-chairpersons who spent numerous hours organizing their booths or events, as well as the countless volunteers and organizations who help with these booths and events. thanks to the coldwater emS squad as well as the coldwater Police Dept. for keeping everyone safe during the weekend. thanks to mcerV for providing security personnel during the night and assisting with various events. thanks to the coldwater Fire Dept. for the water needs and for assisting with the Lifeflight event. thanks to all of the local businesses who donated merchandise for the picnic. to anyone that i might have overlooked, a big thAnK you!

occur, it can be serious. The Ohio Department of Health urges Ohioans to take steps to avoid mosquito bites, such as wearing light-colored long pants and long-sleeved shirts as well as socks and shoes.
In addition, to avoid mosquito bites for both animals and humans, the Ohio Departments of Agriculture and Health recommend insect repellants be used according to label directions. Mosquitoes can be active until the ﬁrst frost and will stay infected, and
capable of transmitting viruses, as long as they live. Suspect equine cases should be reported to local veterinarians and the Ohio Department of Agriculture, and any suspect human cases should be reported to the local health department.

Think Twice before Joining the “Gold Rush”
In recent months, you may have heard a lot about investing in gold. But is gold the right choice for you? Actually, many factors are involved in this investment decision —and you’ll want to consider these factors before you invest. Of course, the lure of gold is undeniable. Throughout history, gold has been perceived as having great intrinsic value. And this year, as you may know, gold prices have hit record highs, at well over $1,200 an ounce, as people have sought “shelter” from the stormy financial markets. But as an investment possibility, gold has some “scratches” to it. First of all, contrary to what you may believe, gold prices do not always go up; instead, they will fluctuate, sometimes greatly. Furthermore, there are specific risks with the different ways of investing in gold. If you bought a gold futures contract (an obligation to buy gold at a predetermined future date and price), you could lose money if gold falls, because you’ll still be obligated to complete your contract at the higher, agreed-upon price. If you purchased gold in the form of coins, bullion or bars, you’d face storage, security, insurance and liquidity issues. You need to do a lot of research before investing in gold mining companies, because some of these companies may still be in the gold-exploring stage — and there’s no guarantee their explorations will lead to profitable discoveries. Also, even when its price is considerably lower than it is today, gold is still a fairly expensive investment compared to other choices. It can be costly to go into the gold futures market. And you’ll likely have to spend thousands of dollars if you want to buy a bar of gold or even a bunch of coins. Given these drawbacks to investing in gold, what can you do to fight back against market volatility? One of the best ways is to diversify your holdings among a variety of investments suitable for your financial objectives. Market downturns often affect one type of asset class more than another, so if you can spread your dollars among a variety of asset classes, you can help blunt the effects of volatility. Keep in mind, though, that diversification, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against loss. In coping with volatility, you’ll also help yourself by taking a long-term view of your investments’ performance. If you look at your investment statement for a given month, you might not like what you see. But holding your investments for the long term may help your portfolio better weather the ups and downs you’ll encounter in the investment world. So try to avoid the allure of gold as a “quick fix” to whatever seems to be ailing the financial markets at a particular time. Other investments may be less glitzy and glamorous than gold, but they can have their own sparkle.

oSu 43 – ou 7 celinA 26 – St. mAryS 25 colDWAter 7 – St. henry 6 the competitive fires between the Ohio State Buckeyes and the ohio university Bobcats do not compare to the intense feelings that exist between the Bucks and michigan, but the two ohio schools did once contest each other in the legal system. the folks at ohio university are proud of the fact that they were founded in 1804, the first college in the state. ohio State university is a relative newcomer on the scene, founded generations later in 1870. ohio university has made efforts to protect their name and “ohio” uniform logos and challenged the Buckeyes when they supposedly forgot the “State” half from some team uniforms. Although ohio university was able to protect its uniform logo, it was interesting to watch the ohio State team led onto the field by four men holding four large flags spelling o-h-i-o, followed by the ohio University team led onto the field by four men holding flags spelling o-h-i-o. Although there might be some dispute as to who had the “Ohio” name first and how
it should be used, it took about fifteen minutes of football action last Saturday to decide which team best represents football superiority in the state of ohio. oSu quarterback, terrelle Pryor, completed sixteen consecutive passes and glided away from Bobcat defenders when pressured. coldwater native, ross homan led the oSu defenders with seven tackles and an interception. ross’s quiet modesty is becoming his trademark at columbus. While others beat their chest and celebrate, he speaks in post game interviews about the need for continued improvement. he also recognized the coaches for putting him in the right formation to make his interception ohio university sophomore and Parkway graduate, Jordan thompson, started at the tight end position. in the Bobcat scheme, the tight end is a blocker and it was thompson’s job to lay a hat on some guy in scarlet and gray. in the normal defensive and offensive set, Jordan and ross were not lined up opposite of each other in the game. Adam homan, who is the number two fullback on the Buckeye football depth chart, will probably be always known as ross’s little brother. he saw considerable action in
the game and was assigned to open holes for the tailback and to protect Pryor in passing situations. losing is not much fun at any level of athletics, but sometimes winning is not all that much more enjoyable. A veteran coach with a long history of winning seasons and championships once told me the victories are no longer as satisfying, but the defeats are much harder to take. the best of times are the upper bound seasons when losers become winners. Self-confidence grows by leaps, energy levels increase, and fans appear from nowhere. the celina Bulldogs deserve the good times and the team and community better enjoy it. i believe that the breaks even out, even if it takes years to do so. the Dogs are just getting even in some games. high School athletics should be fun for kids and in the process teach values such as hard work, teamwork, and respect for authority. it also can provide entertainment for a lot of people. But sometimes high school sports times can be just plain cruel. most of us make our mistakes in private, not in the view of thousands. last Friday it was a big win for a young coldwater squad that got them back to 500. St. henry had hoped to exorcise demons from a decade past, but had another last quarter heart breaking team loss, even though most fans will remember just one play.
110-26 in the next three games. minster is coming off of a 41-6 loss to marion local on Friday. new Bremen recorded its opening win of the season in a 35-20 win at Fort recovery on Friday. the cardinals have enjoyed the soft part of their schedule to date but it gets significantly tougher starting in week six. new Bremen plays Anna, Versailles, coldwater and Delphos St. John’s in four of the last five weeks. Van Wert (2-2, 1-2) at celina (3-1, 3-0) celina comes in on a threegame winning streak in Western Buckeye league play as the Bulldogs have consecutive victories over Defiance, Wapakoneta and St. marys. the back end of the schedule is much tougher for the Bulldogs with consecutive games against Kenton, elida, lima Bath and ottawa Glandorf to close the season. the cougars have been tough at home with wins over Bryan (36-20) and elida (41-37). Van Wert’s two losses have come on the road to Kenton (70-34) and lima Bath (47-27).
