In June, an MRI determined that the cav-

brain stem hemorrhages with each hemor- ernous angioma was continuing to hemor-

rhage leaving her with more symptoms. Teresa Breckler Arend was born in Hicksville and grew up on a small farm out- side of Defiance. On Aug. 14, 1999, she mar- ried Brian Arend of Paulding and she taught special education classes until their first son, Ethan, was born. Ethan had some medical problems so Teresa became a stay-at-home mom. The Arends had another son, Nathan. She noted, “My initial hemorrhage only brought about blurred vision. My vision wors- ened with each hemorrhage and eventually my right eye turned in towards my nose due to the pressure on the nerve that controls the out- side muscle.” In a year’s time, Teresa suffered seven brain hemorrhages. In May 2010, Teresa had her first brain surgery to attempt to remove what was determined to be a cavernous angioma in her brainstem. A cavernous angioma is a mal- formed blood vessel which had probably been present at birth. During her first surgery, they removed two quarter-sized pieces of skull so they could

rhage and was taking up 80 percent of her brain stem. She said, “What had started out as being a nuisance of symptoms was becoming life-threatening, as everything goes through the brainstem. “Each time the malformation grew, it gave me new symptoms and if it continued to grow at that rate, I could stop breathing or my heart could have just stopped.” Teresa underwent a second surgery in July to attempt to remove the malformation. She was told by her surgeon that following sur- gery, she may come out of the operation with a trach [tube], feeding tube and other issues. “But,” Teresa continued, “it was either that or risk dying from another hemorrhage at home.” She said, “It is amazing how God can con- quer all possible risks. I woke up from surgery with no trach or feeding tube. I had no new symptoms. In fact, some of my pre-op symp- toms had disappeared.

Jonathon Lichty of Payne began as the new county veterans service officer Oct. 1. The Veterans Service Office is located at 810 E. Perry St. in Paulding.

Iraq veteran is new veterans service officer

By JAROD ROSEBROCK Correspondent

“We’ve all done our job for our county and I wanted to help the veterans who came before

One of the biggest issues Lichty is facing currently is trying to get to know all new vet- erans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and are now coming home, and helping them get claims and paperwork filed. His goal is to make sure every vet receives his or her entitle- ments and financial assistance and are taken care of. Any veteran in need of assistance or infor- mation is welcome to stop by the Veteran’s Service Office on Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. or call 419-399-8285 for an appointment. The office is located at 810 E. Perry St. in Paulding, next to the health de- partment. Lichty adds that he will gladly take time out of his day to meet after hours with veterans who might not be free during the day.

We have finished canning our applesauce now. We made 21 quarts total. And we also enjoyed just eating many of the apples as snacks. I like to use a variety of apples to make sauce. I think it makes for a better flavored sauce. This time we used Northern Spy, Cortland and Golden Delicious for our applesauce. I think we are now done with canning until this winter when we do our meat, unless Joe is lucky deer hunting next month. Joe and the boys have been having fun setting up their

pop-up tent for hunting sea- son which, as I said, begins

next month. Our neighbor has been so kind to let Joe

use their woods for hunting deer. Yesterday. Joe took me to their hunting spot to show me

where they set it up. It was the first time I have been back there. It is fixed up pretty neat and has two fold- ing chairs inside. He took an extra one in case the boys want to go along hunting with him sometime. Kevin sat in the little chair and looked so relaxed. He said he wants to come along and watch Dad shoot a deer. Benjamin, 11, and Joseph, 8, are also very excited and pre- tend they are deer hunting in the hay field with Benjamin’s bow and arrow. It is just a lit-

Everyone helpful in courthouse

Dear Editor, For quite a while now, we have wanted to say nice things about all of the re- markable people who work at our courthouse. This year especially, we had many questions about descriptions, taxes, and procedures concerning small parcels of our land. Everyone – especially in the engineering office, the recorder’s office, the title office, and the auditor’s of- fice (and in particular Carol Temple), were so very helpful to us – just ordinary folks who were treated with the utmost of patience, kindness, courtesy, and pro- fessional guidance in an- swering our questions and guiding us to the proper sources. Thanks to all of you.

Vote ‘No’ on ordinance repeal

Dear Editor and the voters of Payne, There is a small group of cit- izens in your community who are trying to impede a new business in your community and possibly any future busi- ness that might like to locate there. They have a petition, which was signed by local residents and filed for you to vote on Nov. 2. Be careful when you vote on this because it might be confusing. They want to repeal Ordi- nance 2010-4. The town council passed Ordinance 2010-4 to attract or establish new business, which was the starting point that

brought the new Dollar Gen-

eral to town. This group of people want to restore B-1 or Business One [zoning] back to R-1 or Resi- dential One, which is their right, but why? From what I’ve seen al- ready, the store is a huge suc- cess and it’s only been open a couple of weeks. Like all new things, time will tell. People look for bargains and that is what you get at Dollar Gen- eral. I’m sure that many of our surrounding neighbors would appreciate your “No” vote to not repeal this ordinance. A town that does not grow with the times will soon die, and that is exactly what has been going on in Payne for the last 40 years. I know this first- hand because I grew up in Payne and still consider it my home even though I no longer liver there. So once again, I’m asking the voters in the Payne com- munity to vote “No” – do not repeal Ordinance 2010-4 and let businesses know that Payne is open for business. Jerry Crone Antwerp

Take pride in our county; vote yes

Dear Editor, This is the first time ever that I have wrote anything for public consumption, and will probably be my last. Some of you may agree with me and some will dis- agree, but that’s okay. I am writing on behalf of the upcoming county tax levy on the ballot in No- vember. There is nothing that I hate more as paying taxes, especially those we send to Columbus and Washington. The local tax the commis- sioners are asking for is a very small sum, in order to run the county and provide the basic things that the county commissioners nor- mally provide. Every penny that we pay stays here; none is sent out to pay for things not needed, and should not be provided by government. We have a lot to be proud of in Paulding County, and the levy will help keep it that way. We have one of the best county highway systems of any county in the state, our farmers are the most productive of any in the US. We have some of the best schools to be found anywhere. We have the very low crime rate, compared to other places you can read about in the newspapers every day. I could go on and on, but anyone living here already knows this. The 2-mill levy will gen- erate about $613,268 gross, expenses from the top takes away approximately 10 per- cent, leaving a net of nearly $551,942. This amounts to a home worth $100,000 would have an additional $70 per year tax.

I realize that there are a lot of people laid off work and are hurting, but we can find reasons for not doing some- thing if we want to, myself included. But now is not the time to feel down in the dumps. Let’s all take the atti- tude we can get the job done, pull together, take pride in our county and restore it to the place we all want to live. A place that our children will look back and say, “Thanks, Dad and Mom. What a great thing you did.”

In My Opinion

I’m a profiler

We are pretty sure that we shouldn’t profile our fellow

human beings. The newer and more sensitive ethic dictates that we do not judge. This is different than back in the day. The old common thinking was that first impressions were critical. Now, if you are accused of making a judgment, it’s close to being aligned with a caveman. It’s difficult to make any

In My Opinion Ron Lane
In My

general statement about any- thing anymore even if you’re staring right at it. I profile. I think you should take the time to present yourself in a fashion that avoids confu-

sion. If you want to avoid confusion, then be careful about your appearance. If you don’t care, just remember that there are a few of us “first impression” people still around. Let’s say a guy sits next to you on an airplane clearly dressed like a Middle Easterner. When he crosses his leg and you notice he has a wick in the sole of his sneakers, should you react in some way? A guy like me will go to the flight attendant. Soon, about three air marshals show up. Two of them pin my seatmate’s arms to his seat and the third sticks

11:10 a.m. Police arrested his foot in a bucket of water. Sure, you feel bad when you

find out it’s just a foot deodorizer, but I feel he should have been more careful about his appearance. What do you do if while standing in line at the bank, a guy comes in wearing a ski mask and a trench coat? The modern, more sensitive person would assume this guy has a thyroid problem and low body temperature. I’m pretty sure he should have given his attire more thought. Here’s one. Let’s say it’s your job to hire the new third grade teacher. This guy shows up with words shaved in his hair and so much jewelry in his face he looks like his tackle box blew up. See, this would be really hard for me to over- look. You hire him; I wouldn’t even if he was the best

teacher in the world. I’m going with my first impression. I think it’s our job to try to fit in. I read somewhere once that sometimes the road less traveled is for a reason. By the way, you profile, too. You may want to be sure no one feels you have a bias about anything. Turn it back a few clicks. It’s okay. Finally, let me say this. When a foreigner comes to our country, it’s because they feel it will be an im- provement. Having said that, they should assimilate. Join in. Become part of what they admired. Become an American. Learn English. Cherish freedom and protect it. I profile and so do you. See you in church.

A free developmental screening for children from birth to age

  • 5 will be held Friday, Nov. 5 at two locations. The event will be held from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Payne Elemen- tary. In case school is canceled, the screening will be held Nov.


The early childhood years from birth to the start of kindergarten are an important time of rapid learning and growth. Early screen- ing is a quick and simple way to identify, at an early stage, possible learning or health concerns so that children can get needed help before starting school. This screening will be used for checking age-appropriate de- velopment in the areas of communication, motor, cognitive, social and adaptive behaviors. The event is coordinated by Help Me Grow, Departments of Education, Paulding County Hospital, Ohio

Department of Health, NOCAC, Paulding County EI/DD, Family and Children First Council, Antwerp Local Schools, Paulding Ex- empted Village Schools and Wayne Trace Local Schools. Call 1-800-686-2964, extension 1116 for registration informa- tion. Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins will be accepted. The next developmental screening will be Jan. 14 at Paulding and Oakwood elementaries.

Holiday spirit

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays and the autumn season has been a much-loved season for me because there is nothing like the activities that accompany a chilly evening. Looking back, I’ve had many amazing Hal- loween memories and some really good costumes! Over the years I’ve been Barbie, a puppy, Minnie Mouse, even Char- lie Chaplin and Elton John. No, that isn’t a typo, I really was

Sir Elton one year, and I might add that it was a stellar en- semble complete with a balding head and sparkling over- sized glasses and platform shoes. That said, it isn’t just the

dressing up and the sugar rush from Trick-or-Treating that I adore; I also love to be scared. I’m always excited to see what frightening flicks will be in store for the month of October from “Pet Se- matary” to “The Shining”

and of course the classic “Poltergeist.” It never ceases to amaze me at how I still have to sleep with a night light on after watching these. This time of year never fails to enter- tain people of all ages and I’ve found some interesting facts on this spooky holiday. Halloween, referred to as All Hallows Eve, was originally a pagan holiday to honor those who passed. It was cele- brated on Oct. 31 since this was the last day of the Celtic calendar and the celebration dates back over 2,000 years. The Jack-O-Lantern tradition comes from an old Irish folk tale about a man named Stingy Jack. Rumor has it that he was unable to get into heaven and was turned away from the devil because of his tricky ways, so he set off to wander the world looking for a resting place. For light, Stingy Jack used a burning coal ember in a hollowed-out turnip. When the Irish immigrated to the U.S., they found that turnips were not as readily available like they were in their homeland, so they started carving pumpkins as a replacement for their tra- dition. In the movie “Halloween,” the mask worn by the charac- ter Michael Myers was actually formed from William Shat- ner’s face and was then painted white. Eighty-six percent of American homes decorate for Hal- loween. The number one candy of choice is Snickers, and looks like there were a few of these chocolate bars handed out, as last year each American ate an average of 24.5 pounds of candy! Are you deathly afraid of Halloween? If you are, then you suffer from Samhainophobia. More than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be pro- duced this year. That equates to nearly nine billion pieces, which would be enough to circle the moon nearly four times if laid end-to-end. Here’s to everyone having a happy and safe Halloween and let us also remember to be thankful for our bountiful harvest.

Black cat folklore

Black cats have long been associated with Halloween, and frequently found in myths and folklore. Some people believe that black cats are witches’ familiars, or close companions. Oth- ers think that black cats are witches reincarnated. In the Middle Ages, black cats were regarded as evil. Perhaps because cats are largely nocturnal, and beings of the night are often feared. Today, Halloween and black cats go hand-in-hand, primarily because decorat- ing often involves pictures of witches and their feline companions. Depending on geography, black cats are thought to bring bad or good

luck. Here is some of the common folklore and be- liefs:

• Finding a white hair on a black cat brings good luck. • To dream of a black cat is lucky. • In Asia, a black cat is considered lucky. • It is unlucky to have a black cat cross your path. • A funeral procession that comes across a black cat indicates another death in the family will be immi- nent. • Some believe if a black cat lay on the bed of a sick person, he or she would die. • A black cat seen from behind brings a bad omen.

Private pesticide applicator categories consolidated to 7

By Jim Lopshire OSU Extension educator

All Ohio private pesticide applicators will receive a new pesticide license this fall due to the consolidation of pesticide categories. The Ohio Department of Agricul- ture has reduced the number of categories for private ap- plicators from 13 to seven. This reduction could mean fewer categories listed on the new applicator’s license. This consolidation reflects the changing needs of farm- ing operations. Several smaller-use categories have been combined for applica- tors. For example, growers who raise produce will now only need one category for fruit and vegetable crops. The new categories for a pri- vate pesticide applicator’s li- cense are:

Category 1: Grain and Ce- real Crops Category 2: Forage Crops & Livestock Category 3: Fruit & Veg- etable Crops Category 4: Nursery & Forestry Crops Category 5: Greenhouse Crops Category 6: Fumigation Category 7: Specialty Uses Some applicators will have fewer categories listed on their license, but will be able

“Saints” and everyone else they called “Strangers.” We are usually introduced to The Mayflower in grade school. We have read about the passengers’ tales of woe, dis- ease, starvation and of their long journey to get to the New World. But, did you know that also on The Mayflower, among the saintly group of Pilgrims, rode the first American murderer, John Billington? To me, this story was so interesting that I had to share it with readers. Now don’t take this personally if you are a Mayflower de- scendent. It seems that the promoters of the Mayflower had asked the Billington family (John, his wife Elinor, and their sons, John Jr. and Francis) to leave London with them, so that they too, could make a fresh start. Some historians believe that the Billington family was Catholic, the branch of Chris- tianity most hated by the Pil- grims. John Billington gained recognition when he scored three firsts in the New World. He was the first person in the Plymouth Colony to commit a crime, the first to be convicted of murder and the first colonist executed. (What a legacy!) If the Billingtons were nicer people and kept their mouths shut, things might have gone

grims, of course, were suspi- cious of the Billingtons, because they didn’t like the strangers. So, the friction in- creased as the voyage wore on. Illness and filth took their toll and hot tempers often flared. The Billington family be- came more and more unruly and eventually John Billington and a few of his cronies at- tempted a mutiny on the Mayflower in November 1620. (I can’t believe this ac- tually occurred on the Mayflower.) Then one of John’s sons fired off his father’s gun in a room full of passengers. It was

school year due to staff illnesses. He also presented board members the latest board policy recommendations to be re- viewed at the November board meeting and approved at the December meeting. In the business portion of the meeting, the board:

Being a working man all of my life, I know what it is like standing on

Being a working man all of my life, I know what it is like standing on your feet for an 8-12 hour shift in a hot factory in many cases smelling danger- ous chemicals. Working outside in the hot sun, or cold freezing temper- atures. Working 12 feet or more below the ground, or sometimes it may be 100 feet in the air, relying on safety equipment to protect you and hope

that it doesn't fail. I have never felt that the working man is being paid too much, for these labors. I feel that people in all classes should be paid fairly and equally. I want to go down to Columbus to work for all of the people, not just a specified few. Taking all of these things in account and looking at the whole picture, I hope that I can count on your vote on November 2 and I can become your State Representative for all of the people in the 75 th District.

Living life well is an art

Naomi was 96 years old but her age was no impair- ment to the keenness with which she perceived the world around her. In fact, she had an uncanny knack for noticing the little details that others often missed. “Look how blue the sky is today,” she would say as she rode across the open country- side near her home. “Look how dark green the leaves are today.” “Look how the wheat waves in the summer breeze.” “Have you noticed how the gulls have been hovering over the lake recently?” Ordinary things to most people, but indications of God’s precise way of work- ing to Naomi. No one around was more perceptive in look- ing for the sharpness of God’s ways than Naomi. Three of her six children had passed away. She had spent months by the bedside of a spouse as he slowly dwindled from cancer. She had faced numerous surgeries and had been hospitalized for six weeks once, following a seri- ous accident. She had weath- ered the disappointments and hard times during the Great Depression. Still, instead of allowing the storms of life to drag her down, she had always found something positive to focus on, some source of strength to lift her potential pain that could have left her in endless


depression. Life had taken its toll on her, but it had also sharpened her focus. She had learned several artistic secrets, such as the darker the surround- ings, the sharper the light fo- cuses the object it highlights. A verse written in the front of her tear-stained Bible read, “In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith, of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire.” My father never had an art class and he never learned rules of mixing colors. but he was excellent at capturing pictures. “Just catch what God has put in front of you,” he would say. “People say that blue and green don’t go together, but look how beautifully it blends when God mixes the colors.

“Find something to frame your pictures with,” he

would say as he captured slide photos with his Argus C-3 camera. “You can always find something to bring out the subject in your picture.” I’ll never forget one of life’s final moments with Naomi. Her body had finally

worn down and she was con-

fined to a hospital bed in the family room of one of her children.

As I walked up to her bed-

side, seeking to bring her some type of comfort, it was obvious that her frail body was weak and that she was suffering. But she never fo- cused on how she felt. She lifted her head and rested it on on her arm. Then she said, “God’s grace is suf-

HOGANS WINS BY TKO – Ryan Hogans, fighting out of Malice MMA in Paulding, won his match this Saturday night in Fort Wayne with a devastating technical knock out of Lou Del- gado of Archbold. Ryan came up wrestling for Paulding County wrestling programs and spent the past few months training mixed martial arts prior to beginning his cage fighting career. The TKO was awarded after two minutes of the first round due to multiple unanswered strikes that caused his opponent to become unresponsive. Malice was also represented by Adam Kosch and David Ratliff on Saturday, both of whom fought valiantly. Kosch competed in his cage debut against a seasoned veteran with a record of 13-1 and 11 wins by knock out. Kosch controlled his opponent every minute of the first two rounds, winning each round convincingly, only to make a mistake in the third round causing him to be caught in a sub- mission.

enough grace to make it through each moment. Focus on His grace rather than the pain. It makes everything look better.” I stood there in disbelief and wondered how I might look at things if I were ever in the situation that she was. Even in life’s darkest hour, she was still focusing on bright colors of her soul. One artist was asked what contributed to the secret of His success and he replied, “Just paint the way God does. It always works best that way.” Ask Naomi; she learned the secret of his advice in artistry and in life.

Antwerp’s enrollment steady

By STEVE MAJOR Correspondent

ANTWERP – At the monthly meeting on Oct. 21, the Antwerp Local School board heard from the administration that unofficial enrollment figures show a total of 648 stu- dents enrolled in grades K through 12. In ad- dition, another 24 students from Antwerp are attending Vantage Vocational School. These figures are very similar to last year’s total of 684 students, including Antwerp students attending Vantage. In ad- dition, there are 19 youngsters in the Head Start program and 40 in pre-school this year. “Kids are still coming and going all the time, but these figures are pretty close to our count for last school year,” said superintend- ent Mark Hartman. The administration also reported that the scope of work was ready for a potential share of the $400 million awarded to state of Ohio from the Race to the Top federal ed- ucation program. Antwerp hopes to receive up to $100,000 of those funds over the next four years, but there are still many questions about the program. “The scope of work will be reviewed at the state level and we expect that we will have to make some further changes as di- rected by the state. And other issues need to be clarified by the state like can the annual amounts be rolled over into the next year,” said Hartman. The construction of the all-weather track has been completed, but some final steps need to be taken. Hurdles need to be pur- chased and a pole vault pit installed. To fund the final construction and equipment, the Athletic Boosters have taken out a loan of approximately $42,000, which will be re- paid by fund-raising. The board and administration gave their congratulations to the varsity volleyball team which won its third-straight Green Meadows Conference title.

In a change to what the school has done for the past several years, the board approved that this year’s After Prom will be held at Crazy Pins in Fort Wayne. Recentlym the After Prom has been held in the Antwerp school au- diteria, but after consulting with students and parents, the change has been adopted. The board approved the following person- nel actions for this school year: Patti Kam- meyer as elementary student council adviser; Jason Hormann as JV boys’ basketball coach; Joe Smalley as JV girl’s basketball coach; Zac Feasby as a junior high boys’ basketball coach; Bill Brown as a junior high boys’ bas- ketball coach; Jon Short as a junior high girls’ basketball coach; Pat Miesle as a junior high girls’ basketball coach; Jeremy Koesch as head volunteer wrestling coach; Robert Kennedy as assistant volunteer wrestling coach; and Kevin Taylor as Mini-Archers girls’ basketball coach. The board also accepted the resignation of the district’s treasurer and chief financial offi- cer (CFO) Jane Limber. She will retire as of Dec. 31. “Jane has done a wonderful job for the school. She has served for 33 years under five different superintendents. She will definitely be missed,” said Hartman. Antwerp is currently accepting applications for a new treasurer/CFO. The administration reported that all student athletes drug tested at random this fall had negative results. Upcoming school events include: Oct. 28, parents meeting for eighth grade stu- dents going on Washington, D.C. trip; Oct. 29, Academic Boosters chicken din- ner before the last football game; financial aid meeting Nov. 4 at 6 p.m.; fall sports awards night Nov. 9 at 7 p.m.; PTO meet- ing Nov. 9 at 7 p.m.; and winter sports meetings Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. The next school board meeting will be at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18.

Healthy habits that guard against breast cancer

By Richard N. Waldman, MD President, The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gyne- cologists We know that one in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. And while we can’t predict who those women will be, research has shown that certain lifestyle habits play a sig- nificant role in lowering breast cancer risk. Help protect yourself against breast cancer by:

• Maintaining a healthy weight. Women who gain excess weight, especially after menopause, are more prone to breast can- cer. Extra body fat produces estrogen, which can fuel certain can- cers, such as some breast and endometrial cancers. Find your ideal body mass index (BMI) – a measure of body fat in comparison to your height and weight – at • Being active. Women who exercise regularly have a 20-30 percent reduction in breast cancer risk. Physical activity keeps weight in check and may have a positive effect on harmful factors that can raise the risk of cancer, such as inflammation and meta- bolic hormones. Thirty minutes of walking each day is a good start and may be enough to provide some protection. As your strength and stamina increase, add more time, intensity, and variety to your workout schedule. • Drinking less. Despite the often-touted cardiovascular bene- fits of moderate alcohol consumption, drinking has been linked to a higher risk of breast cancer. If you choose to drink, limit it to one drink or less per day. And avoid supersizing – remember that 5 oz. of wine, 1.5 oz. of hard liquor, or one 12-oz. beer equals one drink. • Eating Healthier. Aim to eat a balanced diet rich in a wide variety of colorful fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lowfat dairy, and lean protein. By filling your plate with healthy whole foods, you have less room for foods that are high in fat, sodium, and processed sugar. Substances found in healthy foods, including omega-3 fatty acids (in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, and lake trout) and vitamin D (in fish and fortified milk and dairy products, cereals, and juices), may also offer some protection against breast cancer. The American Institute for Cancer Research estimates that al- most 40 percent of breast cancer cases in the US – roughly 70,000 cases a year – could be prevented if women stayed within a healthy BMI range, exercised more, and cut down the amount of alcohol they consumed. The good news is that every woman has control over all of these factors. During National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, make a con- scious effort to understand the habits that may raise your risk and then try your best to reduce it.

Paulding schools in Race to the Top

By STEVE MAJOR Correspondent

PAULDING – At its monthly meeting on Oct. 19, the Paulding Exempted Vil- lage Schools Board of Educa- tion heard that the district completed drafting a proposal for Race to the Top funding.

Also approved was the eighth grade history trip that will send approximately 51 students to Chicago and Springfield, Ill., May 11-14 at an estimated cost of $411 per student. It will be paid for by the students and fund-raisers. The following personnel

dents $30; and all sports, Fam- ily Pass $200 (includes chil- dren in grades K-12), adults $75, students $40 and student athletes $10. Presale tickets for boys’ bas- ketball are $5 for adults and $4 for students, with all tickets at the door $6. Tickets for girls’ basketball and varsity wrestling are $5 for adults and $4 for students at the door. Tickets for JH basketball and wrestling, and freshman bas- ketball are $3 for adults and $2 for students. By a vote of 4-1, the board approved raising pay for sub- stitute teachers from $70 to $80 per day. The single dis- senting vote was cast by board member Greg Reinhart. The board rescinded the one-year limited contract previously given to Don Clark, instrumental music

teacher, and approved him as a substitute teacher effective Oct. 25. Also, if at any time during the 2010-11 school year while school is in ses- sion, Clark would present the superintendent with a current professional license, he shall be offered a one-year limited contract for the remainder of the school year. As superintendent Pat Ross explained, Clark is completing some final course work to attain his profes- sional license, which he ex- pects to do before the end of this school year. This is a similar situation to that of the Paulding’s high school Spanish teacher Ta- tiana Wright, who earlier this year completed her certifica- tion in the state of Ohio, and therefore has been given a two-year limited contract.

A special committee of were approved for one-year

teachers and administrators prepared the proposal that was submitted to the state for re- view. Ohio has been granted a total of up to $400 million in funding by the federal educa- tion program. Paulding hopes to receive up to $140,000 over four years from the program. The pro- posal focuses on professional development, including evalu- ation of teachers and adminis- trators. The board also approved a resolution to send approxi- mately 50 students on a Wash- ington, D.C., history trip April

limited extracurricular con- tracts: Danielle Dangler, 8th grade girls’ basketball coach; Ron Smith, assistant marching band director; Jason Thomas, JH wrestling head coach; LeeAnn Favorito, Ted Wun- derle and Jerry Hessel, techni- cal directors; Jeanne Windsor, HS Science Olympiad adviser; and Cheryl Moore, 8th grade girls’ basketball coach (volun- teer). The resignation of Shawn Brewer as high school track coach was accepted by the board. A resolution was approved

3-6 at an estimated cost of setting the prices for winter

$599 per student. The fee is to be paid for by the students. Juniors and seniors will be eli- gible to attend the trip.

But this doesn’t seem to satisfy her questions. Can you help? We want her to know this is about love, not control, and that we want to help protect her from sexual temptation.

Most 14-year-olds think their par- ents are out of touch or too strict. We thought that about our parents, too. But in hind- sight, she’ll be grateful for your protection during these

like. His answers to these ques- tions can reveal much about how he feels about your daugh- ter (and women in general), the degree to which he respects au- thority, and his own value sys- tem. Realistically, a first-time in- terview is not the most effec- tive means of evaluating a young man’s character. If he continues to pursue your daughter, invite him to spend more time with your family. That will better enable you to evaluate whether or not he’s a worthy suitor.

Hog earmarks were pub- lished in newspapers because sometimes swine would roam over several townships and people would have trouble lo- cating them. Township clerks usually held the registry to avoid dupli- cation and anyone convicted of altering an earmark could be fined $50. Hogs were valuable and once they were butchered (or their ears cut off), nothing could be proven. Earmarks provided some legal protection for frontier farmers. It’s hard to believe, but drovers actually herded hogs, cattle, and sheep across south- ern Ohio into standing pens along the river so they could be shipped to meat packers. Over- all, the Ohio frontier became an important livestock country and farm families relied on pork plus cattle and sheep. Wool, cheese and butter were also important incomes.

Antwerp Village Council takes up zoning issue

By STEVE MAJOR Correspondent

ANTWERP – At their regular meeting on Oct. 18, the Antwerp Village Council heard details about zoning ordinances that are creat- ing problems for homeowners and also dis- cussed actions to correct the situation. Village zoning inspector Gabe Oberlin re- ported that most all of River Street, east to west in the village, had been zoned as a busi- ness zone in the late 1970s. This means that homeowners in this area cannot legally build additions that normally would require an ap- proval from the zoning board. It also means that homeowners could not re- build their homes after a disaster such as a fire, which is making it difficult for a prospective homeowner to get a loan approved by a local bank. While the council agrees that it wants to promote business along the main road through the village, it is not reasonable to prevent homeowners from making home improve- ments nor to rebuild.

Council members instructed village solicitor Melanie Farr and Oberlin to work on draft lan- guage to the zoning regulations to allow im- provements to and rebuilding of homes. The process of changing the zoning ordinances will require a public hearing and eventual council approval, so it will take at least an- other several weeks. Tony Langham, Paulding County Economic Development, presented details of the pro- posed investment in the Manor House/Essen House complex in Antwerp, for which the in- vestors are requesting village approval of a Community Reinvestment Agreement (CRA). The proposed project, totaling over $5 mil- lion, would include adding senior care facili-

ties and investing in new public facilities like the swimming pool and a fitness center. As

part of the CRA, the village would be asked to provide 100 percent abatement of new real estate taxes on the new investment for 10 years. However, the CRA would also provide that the village receive an annual payment equal to

  • 10 percent of what the new taxes would have

been. Louis Lengacher, chief executive officer of the Midwest Senior Trust, also spoke about the investors’ commitment to the facility and the community, as demonstrated by both the ini- tial investment and this new proposed invest- ment. The improvements would take approxi- mately 18 months to complete and may begin yet before the end of this calendar year. Council instructed Farr to draft a resolution approving the CRA for consideration at the November meeting. The council expressed its appreciation to Marjorie Krutch and her family for their do-

nation of a small strip of land that the old rail- road depot partially sits on. The land ownership transfer was one of the final issues to be are resolved before the village can pro- ceed with final application for distribution of state grants already awarded for the depot ren- ovation. The monthly police report showed a total of

  • 64 offenses cited in the month of September

and 151 calls for services. A report submitted to the council showed a total of 31 EMS runs for Sept. 17 through Oct. 16. No report was submitted by the EMS billing clerk. The next scheduled meeting is 5:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 15.

Let’s recycle! It’s Ohio Recycle Month

By Becky Suvar WMEA Program Manager

October is Ohio Recycle Month! October has been designated this for years. But, you know, you need to recycle the other 11 months as well. Everyone who lives on the planet earth has an obligation to help keep the environment clean and safe. This obligation starts in our homes, in our yards, on the roads and in the office work areas. As environmental issues become more visible, more and more of us are getting on board the “green train” and becoming more eco friendly. We have started to reuse paper and paper products, to buy recycled and recyclable products thus closing the recycling loop.

What exactly does RECYCLABLE mean? Recyclable means that the products’ chemical composition is such that it could be transformed, with a large amount of similar substances, into something else. What about RECYCLED? Recycled items are defined as products made from either postindustri- al waste or post-consumer waste materials. Paulding County residents have many opportu- nities to recycle. You can take your recycling to the county recycling center located at Kohart’s on Ohio 613. A new recycling business has opened in Antwerp: Erie Recycling. They have a 24/7 drop off facility in Antwerp and they offer curbside recycling in Paulding, Antwerp and Payne.

AEP Ohio announces long-term pact to purchase solar energy

COLUMBUS – AEP Ohio, a unit of American Electric Power, joined with Turning Point Solar LLC, a joint venture of Agile Energy Inc. and New Harvest Power, to announce the largest commercial solar development east of the Rockies. Turning Point will develop a 49.9- megawatt (MW) solar generating facility on approximately 500 acres in southeastern Ohio. The project is expected to bring approximately 600 permanent and construc- tion jobs to Ohio through Turning Point’s negotiations with Prius and Isofoton, solar equipment manufacturers from Spain, to supply solar modules and solar trackers for the project from facilities constructed in the state. It is estimated that 300 jobs would be new, permanent positions created at those facilities, while the remaining 300 jobs would be related to construction. AEP Ohio will negotiate a long-term power purchase agreement for the energy from the project. “We are proud to play an instrumental role in bringing new jobs to Ohio while advanc- ing renewable energy technologies in the Midwest,” said Joe Hamrock, president and chief operating officer for AEP Ohio. “Our

continued leadership in supporting the devel- opment of in-state solar projects leverages Ohio’s renewable energy requirements in the right way – generating new investment in our state and creating new, permanent manufac- turing jobs to help grow our economy.” AEP Ohio entered into a memorandum of understanding to negotiate a long-term power purchase agreement for solar energy with Turning Point Solar. If executed as expected, AEP Ohio would purchase through a 20-year agreement all of the output, including renewable energy cred- its, from the 49.9-MW solar generating facil- ity to be located in southeastern Ohio, on approximately 500 acres including reclaimed lands owned by AEP Ohio adjacent to The Wilds, one of the largest conservation cen- ters in North America. Construction and commercial operation of the solar generating facility will be phased in over three years. Approximately 20 MW is expected to be in commercial operation by late 2012. An additional 15 MW will be added by the end of 2013 and the remaining 14.9 MW will be online by the end of 2014. Terms of the power purchase agreement were not disclosed for competitive reasons.

Home Energy Checklist:

Get Started

To Do Today

•Turn down the tempera- ture of your water heater to the warm setting (120°F). You’ll not only save energy, you’ll avoid scalding your hands •Start using energy-saving settings on refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, and clothes dryers. •Survey your incandescent lights for opportunities to replace them with compact fluorescents (CFLs). These lamps can save three-quarters of the electricity used by incandescents. The best tar- gets are 60-100W bulbs used several hours a day. New CFLs come in many sizes and styles to fit in most stan- dard fixtures. •Check the age and condi- tion of your major appli- ances, especially the refriger- ator. You may want to replace it with a more energy-effi- cient model before it dies. •Clean or replace furnace, air-conditioner, and heat- pump filters. • If you have one of those silent guzzlers, a waterbed, make your bed today. The covers will insulate it, and save up to one-third of the energy it uses.

First zero-energy skyscraper opens

The first zero-energy building (ZEB) skyscraper will open this fall in Guangzhou, China. The building, called the Pearl River Tower, was designed by architects from the Chicago-based SOM firm. It is a 71-story sky- scraper that will use solar and wind systems to produce power to fuel itself. Because much of the power used in skyscrapers is

in place to cool the building and offset heat gain from

sunlight, indoor lighting and computer usage, the tower will use solar panels to oper- ate perforated metal blinds on the building’s windows. The blinds will automatically track the sun and open and close accordingly to mini- mize heat indoors. Other heat-minimizing features will enable the Pearl River Tower to use an air conditioning system that is 80 percent smaller than those in conventional skyscrapers.

Interior Dept. signs 1st U.S. offshore wind energy lease

The U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) and Cape Wind Associates signed the nation’s first lease for com- mercial wind energy devel- opment on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) on Oct. 6. The leased area cov- ers 25 square miles on Horseshoe Shoals in Nantucket Sound, off the coast of Massachusetts. Cape Wind is planning to build 130 wind turbines in the leased area to generate up to 468 megawatts (MW) of wind power, with an aver- age anticipated output of 182 MW. The 28-year lease will cost the company $88,278 in yearly rent prior to produc- tion, and a 2-7 percent oper- ating fee during production. The Cape Wind energy plan would be the first wind farm on the OCS, and could generate enough power to meet 75 percent of the elec- tricity demand for Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket Island combined.

Then you have the county recycling program – the WMEA Program. This program provides trail- ers at designated drop off locations on Saturdays throughout the county. An ad at the end of each month is published letting everyone know where to go and what time to arrive with their recycling. Program manager Becky Suvar can answer any questions regarding this program. Give her a call at 419-399-3630. This program is provided to the res- idents through a Solid Waste District grant. Twice a year, a countywide recycling day is held. If you have any questions about Paulding County recycling opportunities, please give Becky Suvar, WMEA Program manager, a call at 419-

Green economy

The economic downturn has caused many people to rethink the amount they con- sume. Saving money often translates into using less. On the bright side, we’re natural- ly reducing our waste in order to cut down on our expenses. A study conducted by the National Geographic Society and Globescan found that the world’s consumers are spend- ing less and paying more attention to their environ- mental impact. Out of the 17,000 consumers polled, a whopping 85 percent indicat- ed the primary reason for their drop in energy con- sumption was to save money. The question that’s on recyclers minds now is will this trend of reducing, reusing and recycling contin- ue once the economy is back on its feet? Or is it simply increasing because of America’s weak financial state? In short, recyclers are hoping that this boost in recy-

cling isn’t just a trend – but a habit. For more information, visit

Reducing sources of indoor air pollution

(NAPS) – If you like to think of your home as a safe haven to escape pollution, you may want to take a deep breath before stepping through your front door. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor pollu- tion levels are two to five times greater than those found in the outdoor air. While this can be a serious problem for those suffering from asthma, allergies or emphysema, it’s not healthy for anyone, especially small children. Because they breathe in 50 percent more air per pound of body weight

than adults, children are more vulnerable to the effects of pollution. Efforts to rid your home of dust, dirt and allergens could even make things worse, as many poorly sealed and fil- tered bagless vacuums add to the pollution by releasing lung-damaging particles back into the air. Here are a few tips to help reduce indoor air pollution. • Properly maintain heat- ing, ventilating and air-condi- tioning systems, changing fil- ters regularly. • Use only nontoxic house- hold detergents and cleaning agents.

• Open the windows when weather permits. • Clean up water leaks that can lead to the formation of mold. • Choose a vacuum clean- er with a filtering dustbag and reputation for providing superior dust retention and filtration. Bagless vacuum cleaner bins can be an envi- ronmental hazard when emp- tied into the garbage. Dust poured from a bin emits fine particles back into the air. That’s also true for any open bag that’s pushed into a garbage bag. A recent independent sci- entific study shows that some vacuums with HEPA filters do not effectively protect a home’s air quality and unfil- tered air may escape, releas- ing as much as 2–14 million lung-damaging particles per minute into the air on aver- age. These particles can pollute indoor air quality for hours after the vacuum is turned off.

Ag director challenges Ohioans to eat local foods

REYNOLDSBURG – Earlier this month, Ohio Agriculture director Robert Boggs extended a challenge to all Ohioans to consume local foods. At a kickoff celebration at the Local Roots Market and Café in Wooster, Boggs encouraged citizens to support Ohio agriculture. “With an abundance of local food products readily avail- able, everyone in Ohio should have access to fresh and healthy food,” said Boggs. “As the department kicks of its

Eat Local Challenge Week, I encourage all Ohioans to plan and prepare one meal every day using foods that are made, grown or raised in Ohio.”

Dear Friends of the Paulding Exempted Vil- lage Schools, The inaugural class of the Paulding Ex- empted Village Schools Academic Hall of Fame was inducted during Commencement last May. It was truly a pleasure meeting the inductees and learning about their experi- ences and memories of Paulding Exempted Village Schools. It is time to begin nomina-

tions for the Academic Hall of Fame Class of

  • 2011. Graduates of any high school cur-

rently within the boundaries of the Paulding Exempted Village Schools district are eligi- ble for nomination. Other criteria for nomi- nations and the application can be accessed on our website at under Academic Hall of Fame. All applications are due by February 1, 2011. November 14-20 has been designated as American Education Week. This is the 89 th

observance of the event. The annual theme

is “Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility”. American Education

Week spotlights the importance of providing every child in America with a quality public education from kindergarten through college, and the need for everyone to do his or her part in making public schools great. Re- search shows that parental involvement in schools improves student achievement, re- duces absenteeism, and restores confidence among parents in their children's education. I am thankful for the dedicated faculty, staff, administration and parents that we have working with our children daily. Education is the key to a better future for our children. Yours in Education, Pat Ross Superintendent


Paulding Elementary-Wendy Nashu

The year is quickly progressing. One quarter of learning is complete which has assisted teachers with getting to know your child’s strengths and weaknesses. Conferences will

be on November 4th and 9th from 4:30 p.m.

to 7:30 p.m

Please make every effort to

.. attend your child’s conference. It is impor- tant that a strong connection be made to as- sist your child with progressing through the curriculum in their current grade. You may have heard some information about grade level academic content standards, but do not really know what this means for your child. On the Ohio Department of Education Website, there is information called Stan- dards guides for Families. The direct web link is: T emplates/Pages/ODE/ODEDetail.aspx?


=14936&Content=88488 . You can go to this link and look up, per grade level, what is expected of your child. Your knowledge of these will be helpful in understanding the high expectations for students. If you need a copy of these expectations, please let us know or stop in the office. The following are tips for preparing for your child’s conference: Look for the strengths in your child, review your child’s grade card before attending the conference, write down questions you have about your child’s pro- gress, let the teacher know how your child does on homework, let the teacher know the areas of study that your child enjoys the most, and clarify anything that you are not clear about with the teacher. A conference is an important checkpoint in your child’s pro- gress in school. We look forward to your attendance. Together we can help your child be successful. Let us know if there is any- thing we can do to assist your child.

Oakwood Elementary-Jennifer Manz

Exciting things continue to take place at Oakwood Elementary! By the time you read this, we will have completed the first quarter of our 2010-2011 school year; and we have already had some wonderful successes this school year. We will be acknowledging our Honor Roll and Perfect Attendance students at an awards assembly in the near future. In October, we recognized Fire Safety Week. We were visited by the Oakwood and Aug- laize firefighters and Oakwood EMTs. They conducted our monthly fire drill, visited the Pre-School through 2 nd Grade classrooms, and gave students a tour of different types of

fire trucks and an ambulance. We want to extend a very special thank you to the local firemen and women who took time out of their busy schedules to come teach us some important safety tips.

October 25


-29 th is Red Ribbon Week. Ac-

tivities for this week are planned by our guidance counselor, Karen Schlatter, to rein- force and to promote the importance of living a drug-free lifestyle. Each day during Red

Ribbon Week, we have a special theme to help draw students’ attention to the drug-free message and to remind them of the impor- tance of making good choices. Ms. Schlatter also arranged for our 3 rd through 6 th graders to listen to a special program about the dan- gers of drugs and alcohol, put on by our local Sheriff and State Highway Patrol depart- ments. In early November, we hold our first Parent/ Teacher Conferences. Conferences are an opportunity for parents to ask questions

about what they are seeing their ch
