Continental woman dies in two-vehicle crash near Arthur
ARTHUR – A two-car crash south of Arthur on Saturday afternoon claimed the life of an area woman. Dead is Angelique F. Connin, 56, of Continental. According to troopers from the Van Wert Post of the Ohio Highway Patrol, the crash occurred at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 23, on Road 178 at Road 209 in Auglaize Township. A 1993 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer, driven by Jacob M. Powell, 16, of Defiance, was westbound on Road 178 and reportedly failed to yield to oncoming traffic. Connin, driving a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville, was southbound on CR 209 and her vehicle was struck on the driver’s side. The Blazer then went off the southwest side of the road and struck a sidewalk. The car went off the southwest side of the roadway and struck a power pole. Connin was pronounced dead at the scene by Paulding County Coroner Dr. Joseph Kuhn, then was transferred to the Paulding County Hospital by the Oakwood EMS. Connin is the county’s seventh traffic victim of the year. Powell was transported to Parkview Hospital by Samaritan LifeFlight. Troopers were assisted on the scene by the Oakwood Fire and EMS. The crash remains under investigation, but alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash. Seatbelt use and information is not available at this time.

Teresa Arend and her sons, Ethan and Nathan, share a bag of Reese’s Cups the evening before her first surgery.

Arend recovering from life-threatening disorder
By NANCY WHITAKER Progress Staff Reporter The past year has brought many changes into the life of Teresa Arend. In May 2009, the young wife and mother suffered a series of brain stem hemorrhages with each hemorrhage leaving her with more symptoms. Teresa Breckler Arend was born in Hicksville and grew up on a small farm outside of Defiance. On Aug. 14, 1999, she married 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 worsened with each hemorrhage and eventually my right eye turned in towards my nose due to the pressure on the nerve that controls the outside 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 malformed blood vessel which had probably been present at birth. During her first surgery, they removed two quarter-sized pieces of skull so they could reach the brainstem. After seven hours of surgery, it was determined that the malformation could not be removed without a great risk to her life. So they closed her back up. In June, an MRI determined that the cavernous angioma was continuing to hemorrhage 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 surgery, 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 conquer 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 symptoms had disappeared. See AREND, page 2A

Jarod Rosebrock/Paulding County Progress

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 Iraq veteran and Payne resident Jonathon Lichty has recently come on as Paulding County’s veterans service officer. He started on Oct. 1 and has been working to serve the veterans of Paulding County since. Lichty joined the Marine Corps in 2002 as an infantryman. He did two tours in Iraq and was part of Operation Phantom Fury during which the Marines cleared Falujah in 2004. While serving, he earned a number of awards and medals including the Purple Heart, a Gold Star in lieu of a second Purple Heart, a Combat Action Ribbon and the Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal. Lichty’s job as the veterans service officer is to help veterans file claims and get financial assistance through Veterans Affairs and to help the families of veterans in times of need. “We’ve all done our job for our county and I wanted to help the veterans who came before me,” he says. One of the biggest issues Lichty is facing currently is trying to get to know all new veterans 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 entitlements and financial assistance and are taken care of. Any veteran in need of assistance or information 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 department. 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.

Martinez benefit planned
PAULDING – A benefit will be held for Eric Martinez from 2 p.m.-midnight Saturday, Nov. 6, at Paulding VFW. Eric Martinez was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in April. Since he is a CCNO corrections officer, he has been unable to work for the past six months because of being hospitalized and ill. As a result he and his family lost their insurance and benefits from his job at the end of July. The benefit is being held for Eric and his family to help with expenses. There will be an auction, 50/50 raffle, dinner, kids’ games, music and a corn hole tournament. The corn hole tournament costs $25 for a two-person team. For more information or to register for the corn hole tournament, call Janet or Danny Martinez at 419-399-5733; Melissa Martinez at 419-7691681; or Angie Martinez Burtch at 419-769- 3830.

Payne Council accepts street
By AMBER McMANUS Correspondent PAYNE – Payne Village Council met in regular session Monday night and several topics were discussed as well as ordinances passed. A letter was received from the planning and zoning board that they approved the plat and naming a street as Parkway Drive, a newly dedicated street within the village. Council voted to approve Ordinance No. 201010 to accept the dedication of Parkway Drive, which is situated in block “A” to the village as a duly dedicated street. The village needs to have voters’ support for the EMS levy for 0.5 mill and the police levy for 1 mill to allow the community to provide necessary services to the residents. It is encouraged that all vote yes. Again, confusion apparently exists on which property the initiative petition, appearing on the Nov. 2 ballot, is requiring a zoning classification change from a B-1 to R1. The initiative petition is not for the lot between the Dollar General store and Ann Bachellor’s property, but for the Dollar General lots. The village administration strongly encourages village residents to vote no on the initiative petition requiring a zoning classification change from a B-1 (business) to R-1 (residential). As a reminder, the grand opening of Dollar General will be held at 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 30. Special thanks were offered to Maumee Valley Planning Organization for the work done on South Main Street and to the Paulding County commissioners for working with the village in giving property back to the village. Council passed a motion to contract with Dan Gamble to do the leaf pick-up. Tiffany Beckman spoke at the meeting about running for the Paulding Common Pleas Court judge.

Halloween By The Numbers
Halloween is Oct. 31. The observance of Halloween, which dates back to Celtic rituals thousands of years ago, has long been associated with images of witches, ghosts and vampires. Over the years, Halloween customs and rituals have changed dramatically.

Trick or Treat! 36 million – The estimated number of potential trick-ortreaters in 2009 – children 5 to 13 – across the United States. This number is up about 190,000 from a year earlier. Of course, many other children – older than 13, and younger than 5 – also go trick-or-treating. 111.3 million – Number of occupied housing units across the nation in 2009 – all potential stops for trick-ortreaters. 92% – Percentage of households with residents who consider their neighborhood safe. In addition, 78 percent said there was no place within a mile of their homes where they would be afraid to walk alone at night. Jack-o’-Lanterns and Pumpkin Pies 931 million pounds – Total production of pumpkins by major pumpkin-producing states in 2009. Illinois led the country by producing 429 million pounds of the vined orange gourd. California and Ohio were also major pumpkin producing states: each produced at least 100 million pounds. Where to Spend Halloween? Some places around the country that may put you in the Halloween mood are: • Transylvania County, N.C. (30,203 residents) • Tombstone, Ariz. (population 1,562) • Pumpkin Center, N.C. (population 2,228); and Pumpkin Bend, Ark. • Cape Fear in New Hanover County, N.C. (population 15,711); and Cape Fear in Chatham County, N.C. (population 1,170). • Skull Creek, Neb. (population 274) Candy and Costumes 1,317 – Number of U.S. manufacturing establishments that produced chocolate and cocoa products in 2008, employing 38,369 people. California led the nation in the number of chocolate and cocoa manufacturing establishments, with 146, followed by Pennsylvania, with 115. 422 – Number of U.S. establishments that manufactured nonchocolate confectionary products in 2008. These establishments employed 16,860 people. California led the nation in this category, with 47 establishments. 24.3 pounds – Per capita consumption of candy by Americans in 2009. 1,814 – Number of costume rental and formal wear establishments across the nation in 2008.

“The first few weeks of recovery were slow and painful. I walked with a great deal of assistance and in two weeks was able to use a walker without aid. “I graduated to a cane and five weeks later was walking independently, my facial droop had corrected itself, my right eyelid functioned normally, my stutter was gone and my hand tremor no longer makes a daily appearance.” Her recovery time is to be approximately six months, but she said that it could take longer before she is back to “normal.” She commented, “My surgeon contributes my progress to my tremendous family support. The road ahead is still sprinkled with difficulty, but as a family and with the prayers of others, we will conquer each difficulty.”

For the Record
Vote ‘No’ on ordinance repeal
Dear Editor and the voters of Payne, There is a small group of citizens in your community who are trying to impede a new business in your community and possibly any future business 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 Ordinance 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 General to town. This group of people want to restore B-1 or Business One [zoning] back to R-1 or Residential One, which is their right, but why? From what I’ve seen already, the store is a huge success 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 General. 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 firsthand 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 community 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 disagree, but that’s okay. I am writing on behalf of the upcoming county tax levy on the ballot in November. There is nothing that I hate more as paying taxes, especially those we send to Columbus and Washington. The local tax the commissioners are asking for is a very small sum, in order to run the county and provide the basic things that the county commissioners normally 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 generate about $613,268 gross, expenses from the top takes away approximately 10 percent, 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 something if we want to, myself included. But now is not the time to feel down in the dumps. Let’s all take the attitude 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.” Dan Nutter Paulding

Everyone helpful in courthouse

Dear Editor, For quite a while now, we have wanted to say nice things about all of the remarkable 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 office (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 professional guidance in answering our questions and guiding us to the proper sources. Thanks to all of you. John & Nancy Morse Payne

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 general statement about anyIn My thing anymore even if you’re Opinion staring right at it. I profile. I think you should take the time to present yourself in a Ron fashion that avoids confuLane 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 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 overlook. 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 improvement. 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.

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 Halloween memories and some really good costumes! Over the years I’ve been Barbie, a puppy, Minnie Mouse, even Charlie 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 ensemble complete with a balding head and sparkling oversized glasses and platform shoes. That said, it isn’t just the In My dressing up and the sugar rush from Trick-or-Treating Opinion that I adore; I also love to be scared. I’m always excited to see what frightening flicks Amber will be in store for the month McManus of October from “Pet Sematary” 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 entertain 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 celebrated 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 tradition. In the movie “Halloween,” the mask worn by the character Michael Myers was actually formed from William Shatner’s face and was then painted white. Eighty-six percent of American homes decorate for Halloween. 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 produced 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. Amber McManus is a correspondent for the Paulding County Progress.

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. Others 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 decorating 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 beliefs: • 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 imminent. • 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.

Free early childhood screening is Nov. 5
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 Elementary. In case school is canceled, the screening will be held Nov. 12. The early childhood years from birth to the start of kindergarten are an important time of rapid learning and growth. Early screening 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 development 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 Exempted Village Schools and Wayne Trace Local Schools.

The Spice Rack
By: Dortha Schaefer

AMANDA GERSCHUTZ and DALE STEEL PAULDING – Mr. and Mrs. David Gerschutz are announcing the engagement and approaching marriage of their daughter, Amanda Nicole, to Dale Leo Steel, son of David Steel and the late Nancy Steel. The bride-elect is a 2007 graduate of Paulding High School and is employed by Fort Defiance Meats. Her fiancé is a 1997 graduate of Paulding High School and is employed by Defiance Metal Products. The couple will exchange vows on Saturday, Nov. 13, 2010 at the Paulding Church of the Nazarene.

Friends of the owner tell this story of Samantha, a 3year-old Labrador retriever. The dog has always been well-behaved for its owner Aaron, while riding beside the man in his dump truck. Until last week, when the animal spotted another dog through the open window and started a chain of events. Such excitement had never been experienced before by owner or dog. “Suddenly, she leaped out the window,” said Aaron, “and was gone before I realized what had happened.” Samantha weighs 80 pounds and when she landed, it was directly upon a fellow who had been mowing the roadside with his lawn tractor. She hit him square in the chest and knocked him to the ground. The man and the dog rolled around together on the grass while the riderless tractor kept on going. It charged onto the roadway, then banged into a Chevy auto driven by a very surprised fellow and finally stopped upside down in a ditch quite a ways away. ••• When you are thinking of eating, and most of us are a great amount of the time, ponder this curiosity – what is the proper name for a sandwich bulging with meat, cheese, onions, peppers and other good stuff? In Philadelphia it is called a hoagie, in Los Angeles it is a submarine, in Des Moines it is a grinder, in Houston it is a poor boy, and in Buffalo it is a bomber. In Paulding County,

what is the correct name? ••• Wedding receptions and honeymoon foul-ups provide lots of laughs for people not too closely involved in the goings-on and snafus. Here are a few I have heard about lately. A couple went to get married at the courthouse where they had purchased the license a few days before. The groom had lost the license while getting his household goods moved to a new apartment. He was told he would need to buy a new one to replace the lost one at a cost of $55, although the first one had cost much less than that. The bride-to-be sat on the courthouse steps and bawled. The groom knew a friend who would loan him the amount he needed and the wedding was performed. Hank reports on his honeymoon, saying they were driving down I-69 north of Fort Wayne when the car started vibrating a lot. They stopped at a motel for the night while he worried about the shaking of the car. The next day they took off toward the honeymoon destination and drove a short ways when suddenly a wheel fell off the car. Ben and Hannah were driving to church together for their wedding ceremony when they came upon a traffic jam. It proved to be four and one-half hours long. A semi had jackknifed, blocking all four lanes. The groom called the minister who was to marry them and told him of the problem. He promised to wait for the couple. Hours late for their important date, the couple was

married. Jenna said her perfect wedding was ruined by something silly. As she walked down the aisle toward her groom, she was amazed when a ping pong ball rolled out right at her feet and that of her father who was escorting her. She was spooked. But just for the moment. She kicked the ball vigorously back where it came from. Her advice to other brides: “Watch out for stray balls on your wedding day.” ••• Mary reports on her trials to prepare Halloween costumes for her 7-year-old twin granddaughters. Each year since they were old enough, Justine and Vivian have told Grandma what they wanted in the way for the proper garb for the Trick-or-Treat season. This year is proving to be a problem since Justine declared she wanted to appear as a green pickle! ••• Are you ready for the spooky holiday, having wedding problems, or naming your sandwich? Tell us, we’ ll tell everybody.

Joe Dorko named CEO of Lutheran Health Network
FORT WAYNE – In a unanimous vote, the Lutheran Health Network Board of Directors named Joe Dorko chief executive officer of Lutheran Health Network. He has been serving in the interim role since June. Dorko, who has 30 years of healthcare experience, began his career as a pharmacist in Pennsylvania. He held leadership positions at hospitals in Pennsylvania and Ohio, including serving as CEO of Paulding County Hospital until 1999 when he joined the administrative team at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne. He was COO at Lutheran for eight years before moving to the top post of CEO in 2007. During his tenure at Lutheran, the facility has seen significant growth both operationally and from a leadership perspective. He has spearheaded numerous leadership development initiatives and facility expansions. “Joe’s dedication to improving the experience for patients, enhancing the commitment to quality and being a good steward of limited resources makes him the natural choice to lead the network,” said Todd C. Rumsey, MD, Dupont Hospital board chair and LHN board member. “He has gained a reputation for being a leader who does the right things for the right reasons. We will continue to benefit from that approach.” Dorko’s community involvement is extensive, ranging from initiatives with the Regional Chamber of Commerce and Vision 2020 to his board roles with the United Way of Allen County, Super Shot, Fort Wayne Museum of Art and the Little River Wetlands Project, among others. He is also an avid runner and participates in races in Fort Wayne as well as all over the US. “I am honored that the board of directors has entrusted me with the responsibility to lead such a vibrant network,” said Dorko. “One would be hardpressed to find a better example anywhere of hospitals and healthcare providers with such unique identities and strengths working together to achieve the common goal of providing unsurpassed patient care.” Lutheran Health Network is an integrated delivery system incorporating healthcare providers owned by subsidiaries of Community Health Systems in northeastern Indiana, including Lutheran Hospital, St. Joseph Hospital, Dupont Hospital, The Orthopaedic Hospital of Lutheran Health Network, Rehabilitation Hospital of Fort Wayne, Kosciusko Community Hospital, Bluffton Regional Medical

JOE DORKO Center, Dukes Memorial Hospital, business health and urgent care provider RediMed, and Lutheran Health Physicians. LHN is northeastern Indiana’s largest healthcare provider, with more than 43,000 yearly admissions and 976 inpatient beds.

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 Agriculture has reduced the number of categories for private applicators from 13 to seven. This reduction could mean fewer categories listed on the new applicator’s license. This consolidation reflects the changing needs of farming operations. Several smaller-use categories have been combined for applicators. For example, growers who raise produce will now only need one category for fruit and vegetable crops. The new categories for a private pesticide applicator’s license are: Category 1: Grain and Cereal Crops Category 2: Forage Crops & Livestock Category 3: Fruit & Vegetable 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 have the first six categories on their license. An example would be someone who only does wood preservation on lumber and does not need any other crop categories. Their license would reflect this by only having Category 7. If an applicator has any other category on their license, they do not need Category 7. The Core category, which covers safety and stewardship for pesticide use, remains unchanged and is required for all applicators. This consolidation of categories does not change the private applicators’ recertification requirements. A minimum of three hours of approved training is required to recertify the license. Of the three hours, at least one hour shall consist of core training material and at least one half hour shall consist of training material specific to each pesticide-use category in which the private applicator is licensed. If applicators have any questions on these changes, please contact the Paulding County Extension office at 419-3998225. More detailed information about the new categories is also available at the Pesticide Safety Education Program Web site or the ODA Web site at

A Penny For Your Thoughts....
By: Nancy Whitaker
MURDER VIA THE MAYFLOWER Why is it that some people feel that their religion is the only right one in the world? We all have the right to freedom of religion, but does that make each belief and each faith the so-called “right way?” The Pilgrims came to America, via the Mayflower in 1620 to escape religious prosecution. However, the Pilgrims, according to some reports, thought they were “religiously right” and called themselves “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, disease, 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 descendent. 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 Christianity most hated by the Pilgrims. 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 better for them. The pious Pilgrims, of course, were suspicious of the Billingtons, because they didn’t like the strangers. So, the friction increased as the voyage wore on. Illness and filth took their toll and hot tempers often flared. The Billington family became more and more unruly and eventually John Billington and a few of his cronies attempted a mutiny on the Mayflower in November 1620. (I can’t believe this actually occurred on the Mayflower.) Then one of John’s sons fired off his father’s gun in a room full of passengers. It was stupid of him, because the young man could have have blown up the ship. He was standing next to an open barrel half-filled with gunpowder when he pulled the trigger. (Kaboom!) However, when questioned, the Billingtons denied any participation in the mutiny plot. (I wouldn’t admit it, either.) Upon arriving in America, the Billington family worked their plot of ground and dealt with various problems. John’s wife, Elinor, slandered one of the neighbors (a Pilgrim) and was whipped and locked in the stocks. She was also fined 5 pounds of sterling. Governor William Bradford did not like the family either, and he called them one of the most profane families in Plymouth Colony. During the first year of the colony, an epidemic struck the colony and everyone but 50 people died. Wouldn’t you know it? Only the Billington family was not affected. (Was this because their faith was stronger or just a stroke of luck?) Of course, the Pilgrims thought that since the Billington family didn’t fall ill, that it was a sign of the devil. This scared the other colonists. In March 1621, the court sentenced John Billington to be tied up by his neck and heels, because he refused to obey Captain Miles Standish’s order to do military duty. He was also involved in some possible arson crimes in 1622. He continued to criticize the colonial government in 1624. Following everything else, Billington had a quarrel with a man named John Newcomin. Evidence shows that the quarrel was probably over a woman in a tavern. Of course, some brew caused a brawl between the two men. Witnesses testified that John Newcomin left the tavern early and shortly afterward, Billington also left. It was reported that Billington laid in wait in the forest where he shot and killed Newcomin. He was arrested, tried and found guilty of the murder. Governor William Bradford was reluctant to actually execute the prisoner, and he asked John Winthrop, the governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, to examine the evidence and the trial records before proceeding with the hanging. Winthrop agreed with Billington’s death sentence, and he was hung in 1630. Sometimes we can be so judgmental of others. I wonder if Billington would have got into these messes if he would have been a Pilgrim? Perhaps they wouldn’t have been so quick to judge. I have always been taught not to argue politics or religion, so I will drop it right here by asking this, “If the Pilgrims came here to avoid religious persecution, why did they persecute others who didn’t believe as they did?” Would you have made a good Pilgrim? Do you ever look at people and call them “strange” because they don’t look like or agree with you? Do you think we are too judgmental? Let me know and I’ll give you a Penny for Your Thoughts.

to purchase and use the same pesticide products as before. The specialty categories of seed treatment, non-cropland, aquatics, tobacco and wood preservation are consolidated into the first six categories. This means an applicator would be able to purchase materials for these applications with at least one category on their license. For example, an applicator with Category 1: Grain and Cereal Crops on their license will still be able to purchase pesticide products for grain crops, but will also be able to buy pesticide products to treat seed and manage stored grain, non-crop areas and ponds on their farm. Tobacco and wood preservation were also consolidated. Category 7 represents specialty uses. This category is only for applicators that do not

WBESC board holds October meeting

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 dangerous chemicals. Working outside in the hot sun, or cold freezing temperatures. 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 75th District.

Living life well is an art
Naomi was 96 years old but her age was no impairment 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 countryside 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 working to Naomi. No one around was more perceptive in looking 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 serious accident. She had weathered 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 surroundings, the sharper the light focuses 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 confined to a hospital bed in the family room of one of her children. As I walked up to her bedside, 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 focused on how she felt. She lifted her head and rested it on on her arm. Then she said, “God’s grace is sufficient. He always gives 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 students enrolled in grades K through 12. In addition, 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 addition, 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 superintendent 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 education 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 directed 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 purchased 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 repaid 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 auditeria, but after consulting with students and parents, the change has been adopted. The board approved the following personnel actions for this school year: Patti Kammeyer 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’ basketball 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 officer (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 students going on Washington, D.C. trip; Oct. 29, Academic Boosters chicken dinner 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 meeting 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.

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 Delgado 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 submission.

By Richard N. Waldman, MD President, The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists 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 significant 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 cancer. Extra body fat produces estrogen, which can fuel certain cancers, 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- CLASS REUNION – The Paulding High School Class of 1945 met Oct. 8 for its 65-year class reunion.

As your strength and stamina increase, add more time, intensity, and variety to your workout schedule. • Drinking less. Despite the often-touted cardiovascular benefits 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 almost 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 conscious effort to understand the habits that may raise your risk and THE PAULDING COUNTY PROGRESS GOES TO OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY – Recently Bake, Jim and Ruby Bakle and many then try your best to reduce it. friends and relatives traveled along with the Paulding County Progress to Columbus to attend the graduation of Clint Bakle from Ohio State University.

Healthy habits that guard against breast cancer

Paulding schools in Race to the Top
By STEVE MAJOR Correspondent PAULDING – At its monthly meeting on Oct. 19, the Paulding Exempted Village Schools Board of Education heard that the district completed drafting a proposal for Race to the Top funding. A special committee of teachers and administrators prepared the proposal that was submitted to the state for review. Ohio has been granted a total of up to $400 million in funding by the federal education program. Paulding hopes to receive up to $140,000 over four years from the program. The proposal focuses on professional development, including evaluation of teachers and administrators. The board also approved a resolution to send approximately 50 students on a Washington, D.C., history trip April 3-6 at an estimated cost of $599 per student. The fee is to be paid for by the students. Juniors and seniors will be eligible to attend the trip. 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 were approved for one-year limited extracurricular contracts: Danielle Dangler, 8th grade girls’ basketball coach; Ron Smith, assistant marching band director; Jason Thomas, JH wrestling head coach; LeeAnn Favorito, Ted Wunderle and Jerry Hessel, technical directors; Jeanne Windsor, HS Science Olympiad adviser; and Cheryl Moore, 8th grade girls’ basketball coach (volunteer). The resignation of Shawn Brewer as high school track coach was accepted by the board. A resolution was approved setting the prices for winter sports season tickets, as follows: boys’ basketball, adults $45 and students $30; girls’ basketball, adults $50 and students $30; and all sports, Family Pass $200 (includes children in grades K-12), adults $75, students $40 and student athletes $10. Presale tickets for boys’ basketball 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 basketball are $3 for adults and $2 for students. By a vote of 4-1, the board approved raising pay for substitute teachers from $70 to $80 per day. The single dissenting 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 session, 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 professional license, which he expects to do before the end of this school year. This is a similar situation to that of the Paulding’s high school Spanish teacher Tatiana Wright, who earlier this year completed her certification in the state of Ohio, and therefore has been given a two-year limited contract.

‘Winning the Battle for a Generation’
By Jim Daly and Dr. Juli Slattery
QUESTION: Our 14-yearold daughter is asking us about dating, and my husband and I have told her she’ll have to wait until she’s 16 for maturity reasons. 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. JULI: Dating is one of those parenting issues that every family seems to approach differently. First, how do you define “dating”? Does it mean an exclusive relationship with a boy? Going out for actual dates? There’s a big difference between two kids who have a crush on each other and an exclusive relationship involving emotional and physical intimacy. I’d approach this situation by normalizing your daughter’s desire to “date.” A lot of her friends are probably “dating,” and having a boyfriend may be a big aspect of popularity. It’s great to get to know the opposite gender and it’s OK to like someone. However, explain to her that a lot of the things people do in dating relationships are harmful – such as frequent breakups, sexting, or sharing too much emotionally or physically. In addition to putting kids at risk for early sexual activity, dating in the young teen years interferes with the many healthy activities kids this age need to be doing. In fact, many kids start dating young just because they’re bored. Keep your daughter busy discovering activities that match her interests, like sports, volunteering or babysitting. Encourage her to develop healthy friendships with many peers – guys and gals – rather than focusing her attention on one individual. Your daughter may still not be satisfied with that approach, and that’s OK. Most 14-year-olds think their parents are out of touch or too strict. We thought that about our parents, too. But in hindsight, she’ll be grateful for your protection during these early teen years. QUESTION: Do you have a list of questions a father should be asking his daughter’s potential boyfriend? JIM: I had a friend, retired from the military, who would make sure that his shotgun was prominently displayed nearby whenever a suitor came calling on his daughter. While she was getting ready, he’d sit each guy down on the couch and say something along the lines of, “My daughter is more important to me than anything. I’d go to jail for her. I expect you to treat her with the utmost respect, or you will answer to me.” One guy jumped off the couch and said, “I’m sorry, sir, but I don’t want to run the risk of letting you down!” and headed out the front door. I’m not suggesting you take this approach! But you could use more subtle means to convey the same message: that while your daughter still lives under your roof, she is primarily your responsibility and you expect her to be treated with the utmost care and respect. As for other questions, the tried-and-true “What are your intentions with my daughter?” is a good measuring stick. Try to find out what his interests are, how he’s doing in school, and what his own family is like. His answers to these questions can reveal much about how he feels about your daughter (and women in general), the degree to which he respects authority, and his own value system. Realistically, a first-time interview is not the most effective 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. By Rick Jones executive director, Defiance Area Youth for Christ We find ourselves living in times of great paradoxes, where what the Bible teaches may run counter culture to what many live and believe. For example, Pastor Kevin Miller, Church of the Resurrection, Wheaton, Ill., writes... “In Ephesians 6:14-18, the Apostle Paul writes: ‘Stand firm, then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.’” Sadly, according to Pastor Miller, there are a lot of Christians who wish Paul had written the following words instead: “Lay back and relax, then, with the belt of evasion buckled loosely around your waist, with the breastplate of defensiveness in place, and with your feet fitted with the pluralism that offends no one. In addition to all this, take up the shield of grudges, with which you can hold on tightly to hurts and slights. Take the helmet of entitlement and the bludgeon of the flesh, which is the word of anger. And air what’s been done to you on all occasions, with all kinds of criticisms and complaints.” For more information about the work of Youth for Christ, you may contact Youth for Christ at 419-782-0656, P.O.

Paulding County Pedigree By: Caroline Zimmerman
FRONTIER HOG “EARMARKS” It was not until after the Treaty of Greenville in 1795 that the frontier in Ohio became relatively safe from the Indians. When the new settlers streamed into the new land, they brought with them one of the earliest meatpacking industries – HOGS! Because hogs could fend for themselves while the frontier people were clearing land and building their cabins, they were fairly easy keepers. They were allowed to run free in the woods eating nuts and worms and anything else they could find. These pigs were not the breed that we think of today. They were taller and much more narrow-bodied. They were wild and unfriendly with dispositions to match, therefore they were called Razorbacks. Other names were Land Sharks, Prairie Rooters and Elmpeelers. In late Autumn came roundup time for the Razorbacks for butchering and the farmers would allow them to clean up the corn fields after the corn was picked. This type had little fat on them and were poorly suited for hams and fat, so it was salted and used for other things. If the hogs were too wild, they were merely hunted and shot with guns just like deer hunting. Just about every farm family raised hogs for eating or to sell. If the hogs were fenced in an area, there was usually no problem, but if they roamed, that’s when the problem of identification came into being. (Our retired greyhound dog has her birthdate tattooed in one ear and her serial number tattooed in her other ear.) Of course, tattooing was not conventional in frontier days, so what was? The practice of notching ears. A specific pattern would be registered with a county official of what a certain “mark” was, and this would be the lawful mark. Some people cropped off a tip of the ear or made slits in certain ears. Hog earmarks were published in newspapers because sometimes swine would roam over several townships and people would have trouble locating them. Township clerks usually held the registry to avoid duplication 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 southern Ohio into standing pens along the river so they could be shipped to meat packers. Overall, 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. Note: Parts of this writing were from The Ohio Frontier by R. Douglas Hurt.

By STEVE MAJOR Correspondent ANTWERP – At their regular meeting on Oct. 18, the Antwerp Village Council heard INDIVIDUAL SCORING details about zoning ordinances that are creatPLAYER/HS TDs XPs FGs Total ing problems for homeowners and also disS. Chamberlain/AHS 13 0 0 78 Kim Bickford/WT 12 2 0 74 cussed actions to correct the situation. Village zoning inspector Gabe Oberlin reKory Plotts/PHS 9 6 0 60 ported that most all of River Street, east to Dylan Horner/WT 8 2 0 50 A. Arellano/PHS 7 6 0 48 west in the village, had been zoned as a business zone in the late 1970s. This means that homeowners in this area cannot legally build TACKLES additions that normally would require an apPLAYER/HS No. proval from the zoning board. Tanner Copsey/AHS 103 It also means that homeowners could not reAustin Speice/WT 83 build their homes after a disaster such as a fire, Justin Bute/AHS 78 which is making it difficult for a prospective Shaile Chamberlain/AHS 69 homeowner to get a loan approved by a local Sawyer Temple/WT 67 bank. While the council agrees that it wants to INTERCEPTIONS promote business along the main road through the village, it is not reasonable to prevent PLAYER/HS No. homeowners from making home improveJake Taylor/WT 4 ments nor to rebuild. Shaile Chamberlain/AHS 4 Council members instructed village solicitor Tyler Arnett/WT 3 Melanie Farr and Oberlin to work on draft lanJordan Koppenhofer 2 guage to the zoning regulations to allow imKim Bickford/WT 2 provements to and rebuilding of homes. The Tom Taylor/AHS 2 process of changing the zoning ordinances will require a public hearing and eventual FUMBLE RECOVERIES council approval, so it will take at least anPLAYER/HS No. other several weeks. Tanner Copsey/AHS 2 Tony Langham, Paulding County Economic Jake Taylor/WT 1 Development, presented details of the proSawyer Temple/WT 1 posed investment in the Manor House/Essen Dillon Sensabaugh/AHS 1 House complex in Antwerp, for which the inGage Critten/WT 1 vestors are requesting village approval of a Shaile Chamberlain/AHS 1 Community Reinvestment Agreement (CRA). Colby Speice/WT 1 The proposed project, totaling over $5 million, 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 initial investment and this new proposed investment. The improvements would take approximately 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 donation of a small strip of land that the old railroad depot partially sits on. The land ownership transfer was one of the final issues to be are resolved before the village can proceed with final application for distribution of state grants already awarded for the depot renovation. 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.

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 postindustrial waste or post-consumer waste materials. Paulding County residents have many opportunities 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.


Let’s recycle! It’s Ohio Recycle Month
Then you have the county recycling program – the WMEA Program. This program provides trailers 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 residents 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 419399-3630.

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 49.9megawatt (MW) solar generating facility on approximately 500 acres in southeastern Ohio. The project is expected to bring approximately 600 permanent and construction 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 advancing renewable energy technologies in the Midwest,” said Joe Hamrock, president and chief operating officer for AEP Ohio. “Our continued leadership in supporting the development 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 manufacturing 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 credits, from the 49.9-MW solar generating facility 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 centers 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 temperature 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 targets are 60-100W bulbs used several hours a day. New CFLs come in many sizes and styles to fit in most standard fixtures. •Check the age and condition of your major appliances, especially the refrigerator. You may want to replace it with a more energy-efficient model before it dies. •Clean or replace furnace, air-conditioner, and heatpump 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.

Reducing sources of Green economy 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 pollution 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 filtered 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 heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems, changing filters regularly. • Use only nontoxic household 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 cleaner with a filtering dustbag and reputation for providing superior dust retention and filtration. Bagless vacuum cleaner bins can be an environmental hazard when emptied 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 scientific study shows that some vacuums with HEPA filters do not effectively protect a home’s air quality and unfiltered air may escape, releasing as much as 2–14 million lung-damaging particles per minute into the air on average. These particles can pollute indoor air quality for hours after the vacuum is turned off.

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 skyscraper 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 operate perforated metal blinds on the building’s windows. The blinds will automatically track the sun and open and close accordingly to minimize 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.

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 available, 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.”

The economic downturn has caused many people to rethink the amount they consume. Saving money often translates into using less. On the bright side, we’re naturally 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 spending less and paying more attention to their environmental impact. Out of the 17,000 consumers polled, a whopping 85 percent indicated the primary reason for their drop in energy consumption was to save money. The question that’s on recyclers minds now is will this trend of reducing, reusing and recycling continue 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 recycling isn’t just a trend – but a habit. For more information, visit

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 commercial wind energy development on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) on Oct. 6. The leased area covers 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 average anticipated output of 182 MW. The 28-year lease will cost the company $88,278 in yearly rent prior to production, and a 2-7 percent operating 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 electricity demand for Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket Island combined.

Wednesday, Octoer 27, 2010 Paulding County Progress - 13A

SUPERINTENDENT’S MESSAGE Dear Friends of the Paulding Exempted Village Schools, The inaugural class of the Paulding Exempted Village Schools Academic Hall of Fame was inducted during Commencement last May. It was truly a pleasure meeting the inductees and learning about their experiences and memories of Paulding Exempted Village Schools. It is time to begin nominations for the Academic Hall of Fame Class of 2011. Graduates of any high school currently within the boundaries of the Paulding Exempted Village Schools district are eligible for nomination. Other criteria for nominations 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 89th 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. Research shows that parental involvement in schools improves student achievement, reduces 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 NOTES FROM THE PRINCIPALS 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 important that a strong connection be made to assist 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 Standards guides for Families. The direct web link is: Templates/Pages/ODE/ODEDetail.aspx? page=3&TopicRelationID=1696&ContentID =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 progress, 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 progress in school. We look forward to your attendance. Together we can help your child be successful. Let us know if there is anything 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 Auglaize firefighters and Oakwood EMTs. They conducted our monthly fire drill, visited the Pre-School through 2nd 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 25th -29th is Red Ribbon Week. Activities for this week are planned by our guidance counselor, Karen Schlatter, to reinforce 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 importance of making good choices. Ms. Schlatter also arranged for our 3rd through 6th graders to listen to a special program about the dangers of drugs and alcohol, put on by our local Sheriff and State Highway Patrol departments. 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 child learn and do in the classroom, on assessments, and for homework. If you have questions or concerns, if you are wondering why your child is expected to master a certain skill, or if you are looking for ideas of how to help reenforce new concepts with your child at home, parent/teacher conferences are the perfect time to address any of these topics. The children who are most successful in school are those who know their parents and teachers are working together in their best interests. By forming a solid team, we can help our children excel. Oakwood Elementary invites all Veterans to our Veteran’s Day Program on Thursday, November 11th, at 9:30. In mid-October, Oakwood Elementary received a Certificate of Commendation from The State Board of Education for achieving the designation of Excellent on our Local Report Card for 2009-2010. We are very proud of this award and will have it on display right next to the Certificates of Commendation we have received in the two previous years! Now you know why I frequently say great things are happening at Oakwood Elementary. As always, we need and appreciate the support of our whole community to meet goals such as this and to help our children be successful – thank you for being there for us! Middle School-David Stallkamp Hello From Paulding Middle School: A big THANK YOU to everyone that supported our middle school fund raiser. The final totals are not officially in yet, but it looks like we netted a profit of close to $6500. The items have been delivered and should be in your hands. If you are writing a check, please make all checks payable to Paulding Exempted Village Schools. Thank you again for your continued support. Grade cards for the first nine weeks grading period will be mailed home on October 27th. Please look over this report very carefully and discuss any pertinent information with your student. For the most part, I have been very pleased with the academic progress of the students. Our fall sports seasons have ended. Congratulations to all coaches, players, cheerleaders, and fans for making the fall sports fun and exciting - now on to the winter sports of wrestling and basketball. Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday evening, November 4th, and Tuesday evening, November 9th. You will be receiving a letter requesting a conference if the teacher wishes to see you or needs you to come in. If you do not receive a letter and still wish to see your child's teachers, please feel free to contact Marcy at the school office and set up an appointment to do so. I highly encourage ALL parents to visit their child's teachers to make sure home and school are always on the same page. On Wednesday, November 10th, our 8th graders will be taking their annual tour of the Vantage Career Center. They will be going by bus to tour this wonderful facility. We thank Vantage for allowing our students to visit. On Wednesday, November 17th, our students will be treated to an all school assembly entitled, "Dare to Move." It is a wonderful assembly that deals with how to deal with hardships that we all encounter in life. The students will discover that courage is not the absence of fear, but the judgment that something else is more important than fear. It will start at 8:30 in the auditeria. On Friday, November 19th, we will be having our annual 6th grade HOG ROAST. This is always a great event and the 6th graders put in countless hours preparing for this day. I thank everyone that is involved and especially those that have donated their time, money, energy, and supplies to help with this event. I would especially like to thank Mr. Ted Wunderle, a sixth grade teacher, who chairs this event every year. He, along with Mr. Joel Parrett and Mr. Mike Leach, stay up all night cooking the hog for the next day's feast. A special THANK YOU to Mr. Brent Davis, who every year graciously donates the hog to the school. It is always delicious and we look forward to a great meal for the day. Picture Re-Take Day is scheduled for Monday, November 22nd. Mid Term reports for the second nine weeks grading period will be coming home on November 23rd. There will be NO SCHOOL on Wednesday, November 24th. This is the start of Thanksgiving break. School will resume on Monday, November 29th. Have a Very Happy Thanksgiving.

How to write a letter to the editor
The letters section of newspapers and magazines is one of the mostread sections of the publications. The high readership offers you and your organization an effective way to spread your message and to reach your target audiences. 1. Outlet Policies – Outlets have rules that are important to consider when writing a letter to the editor. Check them first before starting your letter. Common length restrictions are 250 to 300 words; the Progress asks that letters be limited to 500 words. Most require you to provide your name, address and telephone number so that you may be contacted to verify the letter before it is printed. The Progress requires that letters be signed; anonymous letters won’t be published. 2. Timing – The chances your letter will be published increases if you coordinate your letter to refute, contribute to, or correct recently published pieces from the outlet. You can also write your letter in conjunction with current anniversaries, events and other news. 3. Proper Reference – If your letter is a response to a piece or in relation to a specific event, make note of this in your letter. Quote referenced headlines and date of publication near the beginning of your letter. 4. To the Point – Be concise. Make sure the letter complements the broader strategy to move your target audience. How does the letter fit in your communications plan? Make your point. 5. Know Your Facts – You need to be able to verify any statistics or other facts if the outlet inquires. 6. Control Outrage – You may care to express outrage or dissatisfaction in your letter. This is acceptable as long as you maintain comprehensibility. If you are extreme, you will sacrifice credibility. 7. Write in Good Times and Bad – You do not have to limit your letter writing to times of adversity. If an outlet or event positively covers your issue, write a letter praising or thanking this coverage or support. 8. Write More Than One Letter – Don’t limit yourself to one outlet. Change the content of your letter to match the perceived audience of an outlet, the scope of the outlet, and the location or regional characteristics of the outlet. 9. Many Angles – Try writing your letter from different angles. Different angles reach different audiences and strike different chords on the same people. Diversify your approach to get through barriers while maintaining your objectives. 10. Follow Up – Clip published letters and send them to people that can pass them on to your target audience in case they missed them. Keep writing.

Simple tips to keep your vehicle running its best
(ARA) – All motorists want their vehicle to last on the road and perform at its best. As the summer finally begins to wind down, it’s important to make sure your car is properly prepared for cooler weather and weekend road trips. Since a car is typically the second largest investment Americans make, and families are now keeping their vehicles longer than ever, protecting and maintaining this investment is key to keeping cars running smoothly and efficiently. Sometimes vehicle maintenance can be one of the more daunting aspects of automobile ownership. For many drivers, spending a few hours under the hood or taking their car into the dealer can be like having a tooth pulled – necessary, but painful. Lifelong automotive enthusiast Bob Long, Gumout spokesperson and host of the nationally syndicated “AutoWorld Radio,” the “Motor Trend Radio” program and “The Long Drive” feature, has helped educate drivers about their vehicles for more than two decades. He has a few simple tips for maintaining your vehicle’s longevity and helping to avoid preventable repair costs down the road. “As a passionate car enthusiast, I constantly stress that there’s no substitute for preventative maintenance. A little TLC can go a long way when it comes to taking care of your vehicle and avoiding repairs,” says Long, an automotive expert with 25 years in the industry. With a little planning and some willpower, there are a few smart and easy ways to get your vehicle ready for the road. The key is to plan ahead and know the basics. Below are a few essential maintenance tips from Long that can pay off in the long run. • Change your oil regularly A regular oil change is the service most likely to help prolong the life of your vehicle, and it’s especially important to keep in mind before you head out on any long road trips. Changing the oil, not just topping it off, with a high-quality motor oil that meets the specifications recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer can help your engine get the lubricant protection it needs. • Protect critical engine parts Just because you can’t see a problem, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Before taking a long trip or if you drive a lot, visit a trusted professional and make sure your car is properly tuned. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, regular vehicle maintenance can improve gas mileage by an average of 4 percent. If your car is experiencing poor fuel economy, decreased horsepower, hesitation and/or rough idling, consider using a fuel additive to help your vehicle’s critical engine parts work more efficiently. Fuel system cleaners can help reduce carbon buildup deposits and emissions. By removing deposits in the fuel system, the combustion efficiency is improved, which in turn improves miles per gallon (MPG) and performance. • Keep your tires properly inflated Make sure your tires are at the correct pressure and not over- or under-inflated. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, keeping tires at the correct pressure can improve your gasoline mileage by about 3.3 percent. Proper air pressure is also essential for automotive safety and optimum driving performance. • Use quality gasoline and don’t run on empty A number of consumers have switched to low-quality gasoline due to the struggling economy. That’s understandable, but what most people don’t know is that lower-quality gasoline can leave behind carbon deposits that can rob the vehicle of performance which may reduce gas mileage. Running your vehicle on empty is also not a part of good car care, because sediment from gasoline settles at the bottom of the gas tank and when the gas level in your car runs low, your car uses the dirtiest gasoline in its tank. Driving on a nearempty tank puts your car at risk to get this dirt into the fuel line and possibly the engine. “Maintenance ‘musts’ include regularly checking your vehicle’s oil, fluids and filters,” says Long. “These basics are a critical part of any maintenance regime and relatively inexpensive. By keeping these simple car care tips in mind, you can help keep your car running at its best for years to come.”

Vehicle maintenance can be one of the more daunting aspects of automobile ownership but can help keep your car running at its best for years to come.

Keep your car battery on track this winter
(NAPS) – Preventing a frozen battery in the winter is easier than you may think if you take some time to check out the situation before nasty weather sets in. To ensure that your car battery starts dependably, no matter how outrageous the weather, Interstate Batteries cold weather expert Gale Kimbrough offers some simple tips to protect your car battery against severe cold conditions: • Test the starting power: The

More than just the experts in transmission diagexperts nostics, service and rep we offer a full range repair, pair, of car care services. e

11043 SR 49, Antwerp 419-258-2584


cold weather can dramatically reduce a battery’s available starting power, so have the vehicle’s starting and charging system tested every three months or every oil change. • Charge the battery: Use a battery charger to maintain charge levels and keep the battery in good condition. If the battery is more than three years old, it should be tested to make sure it can survive the coldest winter months. • Test the battery: Have the

battery tested before taking a long trip or after it’s been recharged. • Inspect the battery cables, posts and fasteners: Preparing your car for the winter doesn’t end with the battery itself. You need to inspect your battery cables, posts and fasteners. Make sure the cables are in good shape and are secured firmly to the battery. Corrosion keeps power from flowing freely from the battery, reducing the power that is available to start the car.

• Keep it clean: Clean the battery terminals with a wire brush or spray some battery cleaner on the terminals. It’s important to have the battery and electrical system checked by a professional. Sometimes the naked eye cannot detect the presence of corrosion because it is hidden under the metal between the connection and the post. A fully charged battery is the best defense against cold weather and vehicle nonstarts

because engines require more cranking amps in colder weather. The cold also reduces a battery’s efficiency, reducing its charge acceptance and ability to start an engine. An engine at 32° Fahrenheit often demands

more than 150 percent cranking power from the battery than it does at 80 degrees. At 0° Fahrenheit, it can be 250 percent. For more information, visit

How to drive in dangerous conditions
Individuals who live in areas of the country where the temperature and weather changes throughout the seasons have to adapt their driving to meet the road conditions. Weather-related accidents are some of the most prevalent but can be largely prevented if the proper driving techniques are followed. Some of the more dangerous driving conditions include heavy rain that causes hydroplaning, driving on ice and driving in heavy snow. Hydroplaning Hydroplaning occurs when water on the roadway accumulates in front of a vehicle’s tires faster than the weight of the vehicle can push it out of the way. The water pressure can push the vehicle up on a thin layer of water, essentially breaking the tires’ contact with the road. In a matter of seconds, a driver can lose control and end up swerving out of his or her lane. It is important to follow a few guidelines to prevent hydroplaning. First, keep tires well maintained. Worn-out tread can contribute to hydroplaning, as can inadequately inflated tires. Certain tread patterns are more capable of diverting water away from the tires. Ask a professional about which tire tread to choose. Next, realize that the higher the speed, the higher the propensity to hydroplane. At lower speeds, it is generally rare to hydroplane, unless the water puddles driven through are exceptionally deep. Reduce speeds when it is raining. Also, lighter vehicles are more prone to hydroplaning. Again, if driving a compact or lightweight vehicle, slow down when water is on the road. Should hydroplaning occur, let off the gas and do not apply the brake or turn the wheels. Once the car slows down and retains traction once more, steer and brake accordingly. Ice Ice is a problem that plagues drivers when the temperature drops. While some ice can be detected on the roadway, thin sheets of ice blend in with the asphalt and are known as “black ice.” Black ice can be undetectable until a car begins to skid. Many people have trouble driving on icy roads. In fact, winter conditions often lead to accidents. More than 500 fatalities were attributed to snowy, icy roads in the 2008-2009 winter season in the U.S. It is important to make some modifications to a vehicle if driving on ice will be commonplace this season. At the least, proper tire inflation is important to maintain traction. Tires should also be checked for tread, as bald tires will do little to grip the road. Individuals who want even more protection should consider switching to snow tires for the winter. These tires are made from a softer rubber so they can better grip the road. They may also feature a different tire tread for even more traction. Snow chains can be used to offer greater grip. However, speeds will have to be greatly reduced when chains are in place. Reducing speed is helpful when driving in an inclement condition, including on ice. It helps a driver to better correct a situation and react. If skidding is experienced, gently steer in the direction of the skid without applying the brakes. When traction is resumed, slow down and correct the car. Heavy Snow Driving in snow is different from driving on ice, but they share some similarities. Snow can be melting and freezing on roads simultaneously, depending on whether salt and sand have been applied by road service personnel. Therefore skidding from hydroplaning and ice may occur. Another hazard from snow is reduced visibility. Driving under blizzard conditions is very dangerous. Wind and snow can cause white-out

situations, essentially wiping out any visibility. In these instances, a driver should pull over to a safe area and wait out the storm. Some people experience trouble with snow accumulation on roads that have not been plowed. A lowerprofile car with smaller tires may not be able to navigate through snow drifts and end up getting stuck. This can prove dangerous if the car stalls in the middle of a road where visibility is poor. The best advice for driving in snow is to assess the situation. If it is falling heavily, it can be safer to stay home. If a person must drive, reduce speed and leave a very large buffer zone between the vehicles to allow for emergency stopping. When approaching intersections or stop signs, begin braking early to prevent skidding through. Also, be extremely cautious of other vehicles, as they may be experiencing trouble stopping as well.

5 ways to ensure your older car costs less to keep running
(ARA) – Which is cheaper – a monthly car payment for a new vehicle that will almost certainly have lower maintenance and repair costs than an older car? Or keeping on top of regular maintenance and repair of an older car, and saving yourself the monthly car payment? If the numbers are any clue, it would seem more Americans believe holding on to an older car costs less than paying for a new one. The average age of passenger cars is now more than nine years, according to data from R.L. Polk. And the average price of a new car tops $28,000, according to the Federal Trade Commission. What’s more, older cars depreciate less and often cost less to insure. Hanging on to a car – and taking care of it – can definitely save you money versus taking on a new-car payment. The key to maximizing your savings on an old car is actually to spend a little on regular maintenance. That will allow you to avoid more costly, emergency repairs caused by the breakdown of poorly maintained parts. Follow these simple steps to ensure good maintenance helps you avoid expensive repairs: 1. Get to know the owner’s manual. Your owner’s manual will provide vital information on your vehicle’s systems, and should include a maintenance schedule. If you no longer have the owner’s manual or want more detailed maintenance information for your car, you can buy a factory service manual online. Auto parts retailer sells manuals for $12 to $50 – money well spent if it helps you avoid a repair that costs hundreds or even thousands. 2. Take care of the timing belt. Most cars newer than 20 years old have timing belts that need to be changed, sometimes as often as every 60,000 miles. When the timing belt breaks it may either simply leave the car immobile or, worse, if the car has what the auto parts catalog calls an “interference engine,” then a broken timing belt will likely cause expensive damage to other engine parts. Look in your owner’s manual to see if your car has a timing belt and when it must be replaced.

Keeping an older car – and taking care of it – can save you money. Ensure good maintenance to avoid expensive repairs.

3. Check your fluids. Make sure you know the manufacturer’s recommendations for what type of oil, antifreeze, transmission, power steering and brake fluid your vehicle uses. Using outdated or the wrong fluid can cause damage – and void any remaining warranty on your car. Check your owner’s manual to determine what kind of fluid to use and when each needs to be changed.

4. Pay attention to shock absorbers and struts. These parts protect the suspension, steering, brakes and other vehicle systems. Waiting until the car starts to ride funny or bounce before replacing the shocks and struts may cause costly damage to other parts. Plus, a car that handles and stops poorly is less safe. presents a strong case for replacing original shocks and struts on most popular cars at

The maintenance schedule in your owner’s or shop manual will also list important inspections to perform periodically, and repairs or maintenance you can expect the vehicle will need throughout its serviceable life. It will often be cheaper to replace auto parts before they break than after. Use the chart in your manual to keep track of completed maintenance. Performing regularly scheduled maintenance also will allow you to anticipate expenses and budget for them – a tactic which will always save you more money than paying for emergency repairs.

How parents can help teen drivers
(NAPS) – There’s good news for parents of teens who are about to get behind the wheel. Because experts agree that parents can have a tremendous impact on the safety of their teen drivers, AAA has created a new Web site to help parents get involved in their teen’s driver education and training. is designed to be easy to use and provides users with specific information based on where they live and where their child is in the learning process – from preparing to drive (pre-permit) through the learner’s permit and solo driving. Plus, it can help eliminate confusion and guesswork, with everything parents need to know in one place. “Parental involvement is critical in developing safe and prepared teen drivers,” said AAA president and CEO Robert L. Darbelnet. “AAA recognizes the learning-to-drive process can be intimidating, particularly for today’s busy families. is a unique and comprehensive teen driver safety Web site that simplifies the process by offering parents the tools and resources they need as they progress through each stage of the process. This makes what can be a daunting task for parents and teens much easier to manage.” Featured on the site is StartSmart, a series of online newsletters and webisodes based on the National Institutes of Health’s Checkpoints program, which has been scientifically shown to help parents improve teen driver safety and is being offered nationally for the first time. Some of the topics covered in these 18 newsletters and webisodes include: • Nighttime driving • Distracted driving • Alcohol and other drugs • Developing parent-teen driving agreements. The site also offers an online version of the Dare to Prepare workshop and lessons from the motor club’s Teaching Your Teen to Drive coaching program, both of which assist both young people learning to drive as well as their parents. Parents can also find information about their state’s graduated driver licensing (GDL) system, how to select a driving school and finding the right vehicle for their teens. Parents will also learn how to better prepare their teen for common risks and about driving in adverse conditions. In a recent study conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, only 25 percent of teens practiced under a variety of conditions, including bad weather and nighttime driving.

Experts say parental involvement is critical in developing safe and prepared teen drivers.

(MS) – In tough economic times like these, most people cut back on major purchases and try to make what they already own last longer. One sure way to make certain the family vehicle gives you reliable service is to follow the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule, note the experts at the nonprofit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). In fact, a survey of ASE-certified master automotive technicians indicated that motorists could expect a well-maintained vehicle to last up to twice as long as one that’s neglected. “Putting off maintenance and service or, worse – neglecting ongoing problems, is penny-wise and dollar foolish,” says ASE’s Editorial Director, Martin Lawson. “Today’s vehicles are designed for years and years of reliable service.” Among the items motorists frequently neglect are oil changes, tire and brake service, wheel alignment, and air and fuel filters. Some even ignore engine lights and warnings, which, if left unattended can cause a relatively minor problem, such as a problem with the air and fuel mixture, doing damage to more expensive components. To help consumers choose a repair shop that fits their needs, ASE offers the following checklist advice: • Look for a neat, well-organized facility, with vehicles in the parking lot equal in value to your own and modern equipment in the service bays. • Look for a courteous staff, with a service consultant willing to answer all of your questions. • Look for policies regarding estimated repair costs, diagnostic fees, guarantees, and acceptable methods of payment. • Ask if the repair facility specializes or if it usually handles your type of repair work. • Look for signs of professionalism in the customer service area such as civic, community, or customer service awards.

By STEVE MAJOR Sportswriter BRYAN – The Antwerp Archers volleyball team claimed its fourth consecutive Division IV sectional title by beating Edgerton last Saturday in Bryan, 25-7, 2325, 25-14 and 25-20. With the win, Antwerp advanced to face Toledo Christian (18-5 season record) in the Paulding District IV in a match played Tuesday night (results not available at press time). If successful against Toledo Christian, the Archers will play for a district title this Saturday at 3 p.m. at Paulding against the survivor of Pettisville-Edon. The win over Edgerton is a positive start to the post-season and enabled the Archers to improve to 20-3 overall record. But, at times, Antwerp struggled against the Bulldogs and it wasn’t the kind of effort that will allow a long tournament run when facing better teams like Toledo Christian. “We came out strong in the first game; we were fired up and ready to go. But we lost our intensity in the second game and Edgerton picked it up. Games three and four

were OK, but we are still not playing our top game,” said Amy Hammer, Antwerp’s coach. Hammer thought illnesses and a long layoff between matches were some of the reasons for her team’s performance. “We had a week off since the last matches and that gets you out of your routine. And at tournament time, every team is fighting and Edgerton came in ready to play,” said Hammer. “Also, we have had several girls out sick the last few weeks and their legs are still recovering and their timing was off,” added the Antwerp coach. But one solid throughout the whole season has been the play of a trio of seniors – Taylor Vail, Toni Winslow and Loni Walk. Vail again played big in the front row with 35 for 39 hitting for 22 kills and six blocks. Walk was 98 for 100 setting and 37 assists. Winslow put together a good all-around game on 34 of 37 hitting for 12 kills, 13 digs and 26 of 26 serving. Antwerp is very familiar with Toledo Christian having beaten that team last year in the district finals. “They have a good setter who also tips the ball well. Plus they have a good middle hitter. We remember both of them from last year,” said Hammer. “We need to shut down the middle hitting and be ready on defense for the tips. Also, we have to hit more consistently against them than we did against Edgerton. We will also have to have good all around hustle,” added the Antwerp coach.

By KEVIN WANNEMACHER Sportswriter VAN WERT – It wasn’t easy, but Wayne Trace rallied for a 25-22, 26-24 and 25-22 win over Ottoville in Division IV Sectional final volleyball action at Lincolnview on Saturday. Sarah Feasby had 14 kills to lead the Raiders with Taylor Baumle adding seven and Krystal Wannemacher chipping in five. Ottoville jumped on top early on in each of the three sets, posting a 9-4 advantage in set one. Two Baumle kills and slams by Janelle Davis and Rebecca Habern helped Wayne Trace rally for a 10-9 lead. “We started slow in all three games today,” noted Raider head coach Sara Pugh. “We have to come out ready to play and can’t afford to have slow starts like we did today.”

Wayne Trace moves on to districts
After the Big Green rallied for a 12-11 lead, a Feasby kill and a pair of Davis aces gave the red, white and blue a 15-12 advantage. With the lead at 1715, the Raiders picked up kills by Feasby, Baumle and Carlee Sinn along with a Kari Myers ace for a 22-16 margin. Ottoville closed to within 2422 on a Natasha Kaufman slam before a block for the gamesealing point by Davis gave the Raiders the win. “It was big to get the first win,” Pugh noted. “It gave the girls confidence and got momentum on our side.” However, the Big Green looked to take control in set two. Ottoville scored the first eight points, using a pair of aces by Kaitlyn Ditto and kills from Natasha Kaufman and Tonya Kaufman. Wayne Trace then slowly chipped away at the deficit. The Raiders got to within 15-10 on a Davis kill and pulled to within 18-16 on a Feasby slam. After a kill by Ottoville’s Abby Siefker, two Feasby points and a Wannemacher block for a point evened the contest at 19-19. The Big Green responded with four straight points, two of which came on Natasha Kaufman kills, to take what appeared to be a commanding 23-19 advantage. Wayne Trace had other ideas. Two Big Green hitting errors, a kill by Baumle and three more Ottoville mistakes gave Wayne Trace a 25-24 advantage. Myers then sealed the victory with an ace to put the Raiders in control in the match. “That was big for us to come back like that,” Pugh said of the second set. “I think that really lifted us up but we can’t dig ourselves holes like that either.” Game three was very similar to the first two. Ottoville jumped on top 11-5 only to see the Raiders rally. Kills from Habern, Feasby and Wannemacher pulled the Raiders within 12-11. After a Tonya Kaufman ace to put the Big Green on top 1411, Wayne Trace answered with a 6-2 run to take a 17-16 lead. The run was capped by a dig/save from the trio of Kelsey Heck, Davis and Baumle that kept the rally going and led to a Sinn slam. “We did a good job of getting to a lot of balls,” Pugh continued. “The girls really played hard today and gave it everything they had.” With the Big Green leading 20-18, the Raiders picked up a Davis kill, a Sinn ace and two Feasby slams for a 23-20 advantage. After Ottoville pulled to

Apaches hold off Raiders
By KEVIN WANNEMACHER Sportswriter SHERWOOD – In a battle of two teams looking to get victory number five, it was host Fairview who held on to post a 28-14 win over Wayne Trace in Green Meadows Conference football action Friday evening. The Apaches move to 5-4 overall and 5-1 in the league with an outside chance to still get a portion of the league crown. Tinora remained unbeaten at 9-0 overall and 6-0 in the conference with a win over Holgate on Friday but the Rams must beat Edgerton this week to claim the outright title. Wayne Trace falls to 4-5 in all games and 3-3 in the conference. Fairview struck first in the contest, using a two-yard touchdown by Brock Mosier to get on the board. The play was set up by a 69-yard pass from Mosier to Willy Flanary on the preceding play. The Apaches struck again on their next possession. Mosier hooked up with Matt Tobin on a 33-yard pass play to give Fairview a first down at the Raider 43. Three plays later, the duo hooked up on a 43-yard touchdown pass that pushed the black and gold lead to 14-0. Wayne Trace answered on its next possession. The Raiders drove 62 yards, capping the drive on a 10-yard Dylan Horner touchdown run to get the red, white and blue within 14-7 at halftime. “We talked to these kids about coming in and putting up a good hard fight and playing some good defense,” said Wayne Trace head coach Bill Speller. “They bought into the game plan and they did it.” A Jared Sherry interception set up the Raider offense early in the second half and Wayne Trace took advantage. Kim Bickford capped the scoring drive with a six-yard plunge to knot the contest at 14-14. However, special teams would haunt Wayne Trace on the ensuing kickoff. Flanary took the Raider kick and rumbled 83 yards for the touchdown as the Apaches took the momentum and the lead all in one quick play. “That was a big momentum changer,” noted Speller. “We had the momentum and just like that everything changed on a couple of breakdowns.” Wayne Trace was able to move the ball consistently but the inability to finish drives was too much to overcome for the Raiders. Mosier and Tobin hooked up for a 46-yard touchdown pass that sealed the Apache victory. “We need to finish drives on our own,” said Speller. “We had our opportunities tonight. You get down to the six yard line; you’ve got to punch that in. Horner and Bickford did a real nice job running the ball for us and we found a couple of things here and there. I thought our offensive line did a tremendous job.” Mosier finished the night 19 of 33 for 316 yards. Flanary picked up five receptions for 110 yards while Tobin had six catches for 150 yards for the Apaches. Wayne Trace’s Ryne Jerome was 8 of 23 passing for 88 yards. Horner rushed 27 times for 132 yards and one score while Kim Bickford had 61 yards on 14 carries and a touchdown. For the night, the Raiders totaled 250 yards on the ground.

Panthers bow out at sectionals
By KEVIN WANNEMACHER Sportswriter VAN WERT – Volleyball sectionals opened across northwest Ohio Tuesday night with Division III action taking place at Van Wert High School. A pair of Midwest Athletic Conference schools picked up victories at the Cougars’ Den as Fort Recovery and Coldwater each advanced to sectional championship action with wins over Fairview and Paulding, respectively. Paulding opened leads in both game one and game two but it was Coldwater who would rally for the win. The lady Cavaliers posted the victory by scores of 25-17, 25-22 and 25-18. The Cavaliers got 15 kills from senior Bethany Werling and ten from Brittanie Niekamp in recording the victory. Erika Hartings also added nine slams for the orange and black. The Panthers led 6-1 in game one but it would be all Coldwater from that point on. The Cavaliers put together a 92 run, highlighted by two aces from Courtney Wellman and blocks by Niekamp and Emily Kahlig, to take a 10-8 advantage. With the lead at 15-12, the Cavaliers picked up two Megan Stose aces and a pair of Werling slams in widening the margin to 19-14. After Paulding pulled to within 19-17, Coldwater finished the set with three Hartings kills and a Wellman ace to seal the 25-17 win. “We were very inconsistent tonight,” noted Panther head coach Todd Harmon. “At times, we played well but then we would have a stretch where we didn’t play very well. Going against a school like Coldwater who is used to tournament success and the pressure that goes with it, we just didn’t handle the situation as well as we would have hoped.” In game two, the Panthers led 22-20 late in the set after a Nicole Gebers kill. However, the Cavaliers scored the game’s last five points, capped by a Macy Reigelsperger slam to ice the 25-22 victory. “Mental mistakes and a lack of mental toughness were costly,” Harmon continued. “That was one of the things we talked about this week but it was the difference in the match.” Game three saw Paulding leading 9-7 after a Mesa Pracht kill. However, it would be the last advantage for the Panthers. Coldwater rallied with four consecutive points and would never trail again as the Cavaliers pulled away for the 25-18 victory. Jessica Farr recorded seven kills for Paulding, which closes the season at 15-7. Pracht added four while Gebers and Ashley Myers picked up three each. Reigelsperger added six kills for Coldwater, who advances with a record of 14-9. Wellman finished with four aces with Stose and Taylor Hess adding three each. Fairview let a game one lead slip away and never recovered in falling by scores of 28-26, 25-18 and 25-12. The Apaches led 20-15 in the first set but rallied for the win. Fort Recovery then used that momentum to cruise to the victories in sets two and three. Sarah Polter led the Apaches with six kills while Meagan Johns added four. Chelsey Bostater and Miranda Steffes each had aces for Fairview, which closes the year 6-17. Holly Brunswick paced the Indians with 15 kills and four aces with Olivia Thien recording a dozen kills and two aces. Kayla Kahlig also had five slams while Shelby Brunswick and Kelsey Fiely picked up four each.

Archer offense hits high gear in win over Pilots
By STEVE MAJOR Sportswriter ANTWERP – Antwerp broke a five-game losing streak by posting a season high points total in a 57-22 win at Ayersville. The offense was led by a trio of seniors – QB John Brown, wide receiver Shaile Chamberlain and running back Tanner Copsey. Brown connected on 15 of 25 passes for five touchdowns, tying a school record for TD passes in a game set by Brian Billman in 1998. Brown’s 302 yards through the air also ranks him second all-time at Antwerp to Quinn Tempel’s 319 yards in 2007. Chamberlain snagged eight passes for a total of 122 yards and scores of 57, 21 and five yards. Copsey rambled to 119 yards on 22 carries – often making additional yards after the first hit and only going down in gang tackles. The senior running back also tailed on runs of five and one yards. “It was exciting to be on the right side of one of these games,” said Antwerp’s head coach Drew Altimus. “Everyone got in the game and everyone contributed.” “Obviously I was really pleased with the offense. Ayersville loaded the box against us and dared us to pass. They played man-to-man on our outside receivers and this really opened the passing game for us,” explained Altimus. The Antwerp coach had lots of praise for his skilled position players, but he was also very pleased with his offensive line of Angelo Manella, Grant Dunderman, Cody Knapp, Colton Hamman and Justin Bute. “The line never gets much credit, but our guys have been slowly getting better and better. We have had the same five starters all nine games and they will all be back next year. It will certainly be a strength for us,” said Altimus. With his three TD catches, Chamberlain extended his school record to 13 scoring receptions on the year. “Shaile has been our most consistent performer; he is the guy. He is one of the better receivers we, or even the conference, has ever had,” said Altimus. The attention Chamberlain receives from defenses opens up other options for the Antwerp offense. “Other teams have to game plan for Shaile. They put their best guy on Shaile or they double him, which opens things up for other people. He has allowed others like John Brown, Jordan Koppenhofer and Tanner Copsey to have big years,” added Altimus. Brown has also developed into a very effective quarterback. “I’m proud of the way John has controlled the offense and led the team. He has grown up a lot this last year. He is playing at a level above where I

thought he could play. It has been fun to watch him grow,” said Altimus. Also scoring for Antwerp was Koppenhofer on a 59-yard Brown pass and Corbin Jones on a TD strike of 41 yards from Brown. Antwerp’s final score came when JV QB Derek Smalley hooked up with Troy Womack for 43 yards and six points. With the win Antwerp improves to 3-6 on the season and it was also the Archers’ first GMC victory. In the final game of the year Antwerp will host the Tigers of Holgate this Friday night. Holgate is fighting through a winless season, but should not be taken lightly. “Holgate always plays their hearts out. They know what they are getting in for when they sign up. They play for the love of the game and they give you a full 48 minutes. If our guys think we can just write this one in it will be a real game,” added Altimus.

Bluffton scores 49-24 win over Paulding
By JIM LANGHAM Sportswriter BLUFFTON – One bad quarter was what it took for Bluffton to deny Paulding the opportunity to win a Northwest Conference (NWC) game on Friday night as the Pirates muscled out a 49-24 win over the visiting Panthers. Early on, the Panthers jumped into an 8-0 lead when Anthony Arellano crossed the goal line from the three yard line a little over two minutes into the game. A Drey Gamble two-point run iced the score for Paulding. The Panther defense then fought back Bluffton for the remaining part of the first quarter as the local squad prevailed at the end of the stanza. Things changed, however, halfway through the second quarter when the Pirate attack began to find its way through the Paulding defense. Bluffton’s first tally came with 6:22 left in the half on a two-yard run by Jeremy Basinger and a twopoint conversion consisting of a pass from Hunter Joseph to Jesse Gudakunst. Then, three minutes later, the Pirates struck again, this time on a 12-yard pass from Joseph to Drew Lunginbuhl. Christian Koch’s kick gave Bluffton a 15-8 lead they would never lose. Perhaps the backbreaker came with just 14 seconds in the second quarter when Basinger scored again, this time a two-yard push. Koch’s kick was good again to give Bluffton a 22-8 advantage at the half. “There’s no doubt that that touchdown hurt,” said Paulding head coach Chris Etzler. “The fact that it was so close to the half hurt more. Obviously, it would have been nice to go into the locker room only trailing by one

touchdown rather than two.” The Pirates scored three more touchdowns in the first seven minutes of the second quarter, dropping Paulding to a 43-8 deficit before the Panthers finally crossed the goal line again on a nine-yard run by Gamble with 2:24 remaining in the third stanza. In the final quarter, Bluffton sealed Paulding’s fate when Levi Gleason pushed over the goal line from the one yard line with 5:24 remaining in the quarter. The Panthers finished the scoring with a 25-yard run by Jacob Phlipot and a twopoint run by James Brown. Bluffton improved its record to 5-4 overall and 4-3 in the NWC. Paulding dropped to 2-7 overall and 16 in the NWC. Gamble led the Panthers in rushing with 105 yards in 10 runs while Keshaun Hughes led Bluffton with 74 yards in 11 carries. “We certainly started out the way we wanted, but then we had a bad stretch for about a quarter,” said Etzler. “We have got to come back and win against Crestview this Friday,” said Etzler of Paulding’s final game of the season which will be played at home. “It’s important to our season and program that we come out on top in this game.” Etzler said that it’s imperative that the Panthers play assignment football against Crestview, a team that likes to run an option offense. “It takes that (assignment defense) to counteract that offense,” said Etzler. “Offensively, we’ve been getting a little better each week. We’re going to get our offense off to a good start against Crestview and then play that way the rest of the game.”
