PAULDING – A budget
dispute earlier this year be-
tween the sheriff and the
county commissioners pro-
duced a lawsuit that was
eventually dismissed, but the
county still had to pay more
than $44,000 in legal and
other fees.
In April, Sheriff David I.
Harrow filed suit in Paulding
County Common Pleas Court
requesting a declaratory
judgment from the commis-
sioners. He alleged the
amount his office was bud-
geted for the year is resulting
in a $51,504 shortfall. The
suit was dismissed in a judg-
ment entry filed Aug. 31 fol-
lowing a one-day trial.
Payment records obtained
by the Progress from the
county auditor’s office shows
that the commissioners’ at-
torney, Don Theis of the law
firm Baran, Piper,
Tarskowsky, Fitzgerald and
Theis of Toledo, has been
paid a total of $24,879.26 be-
tween June and October.
Harrow’s attorney, W.
Prentice Snow of the law
firm of Morrow and Erhard
in Newark, Ohio, has been
paid a total of $17,988.72 be-
tween July and October.
In addition, a court reporter
received $1,009 for her work
on the case.
Also, visiting Judge
Randall Basinger, who
presided in the case, was paid
a total of $160.
The grand total for all ex-
penses: $44,036.98.
There are no additional
outstanding bills to be paid.
After the lawsuit was dis-
missed, Harrow commented:
“People thought this was
about the over a $50,000 re-
duction in my budget. That
wasn’t the issue. The real
issue was that the county
commissioners reduced their
general fund budget from
2009 to 2010 by $300,000,
but $200,000 was out of my
budget.”

For many, the coming of
Thanksgiving initiates the special time
of giving for the Christmas season. Each
year the crunch gets harder on families
as they battle record unemployment and
a floundering economy. According to a
national report, this year it will put stress
on families to have a Merry Christmas.
According to Judi Short of Paulding
County Job and Family Services, the
agency assisted 311 families and 643
children last year.
“I already have 231 families signed up
and it is still early,” said Short.
Short noted that Paulding County
families and individuals who need assis-
tance at Christmas, and individuals and
groups who wish to sponsor those in
need, may contact the Paulding County
Department of Job and Family Services
at 419-399-3756, ext. 324, to leave a
voice mail or request a form.
“You may also make new toy dona-
tions or sponsor a family in need. You
can bring your donations into Job and
Family Services.”
Numerous projects are going on in our
county this year. Please give generously
to make the holidays a brighter season
for all.

Senior center satellite may open in Oakwood
week on Monday, Wednesday and
Friday with a rare evening meal or
fund-raiser.
Yeutter stressed to council that the
center would offer more than meals as
there would be socialization from
card groups, bingo, educational pro-
grams, health screenings and much
more. Transportation will also be of-
fered for those who live in the area

OAKWOOD – Oakwood Village
Council met in regular session on
Nov. 22 with five council members
present. Councilman Todd Dangler
was absent.
Marsha Yeutter, director of the
Paulding County Senior Center, intro-
duced council to the center’s plans to
open a satellite senior center in
Oakwood. The purpose of the expan-
sion to the Oakwood location is to ex-
pand meals and socialization to senior
consumers living in the eastern side of
Paulding County and in the western
edge of Putnam County.
Yeutter told council that Oakwood
was the satellite village of choice be-
cause it was centrally located for con-
sumers to come from Oakwood,
Grover Hill, Melrose, Five Span and
even Dupont and Continental, as the
center would not have county lines as
boundaries.
Yeutter told council that the meals
would be prepared in the Paulding
kitchen and then transported to
Oakwood in heated containers to be
served as a lunchtime meal.
Yeutter explained that they had
picked the Oakwood fire station and
the Twin Oaks United Methodist
Church as possible locations for
Oakwood senior center activities,
which would include three meals per

everyone in Paulding County has a blessed Christmas.”
Mitten Tree
The Paulding County Carnegie
Library will be sponsoring its annual
Mitten/Scarf Tree.
People can place new hats, scarves or gloves on
the tree, and they will be distributed throughout
the county. The tree will stay up as long as is nec-
essary.
Library director Susan Pieper noted that this
year the library will be a drop-off point for
items for the food pantry. The food pantry is
in need of personal hygiene products
such as toiletries and paper products.
Angel Tree
Once again, the Angel Tree will
be a very special part of Christmas at
ALCO Department Store.
The tree will have names of children on it;
along with the child’s name, there will be a list
on the back with suggestions for that child for
Christmas.
The Angel Tree is in its ninth year. Last year
there were approximately 76 names on the tree.
People have the opportunity to pick a name off
the tree and purchase a gift for that child.
Gifts can be donated to ALCO either
wrapped or unwrapped. Job and
Family Services will distribute
them to the families.
Christmas
Elf Project
The Twin Oaks Church along with the
Oakwood Post Office, will be sponsoring the
Christmas Elf Project again this year. This is similar to
the Angel Tree. This year, trees are going to be placed in
The State Bank, the library and at the Twin Oaks Church of
Oakwood, and will remain until after the holidays. The trees
were to be in place by Nov. 23. The project, which is in its 15th
year, will contain requests from individuals in the Oakwood mail-
ing area who are in need.
Those who wish to participate can take as many tags as desired,
purchase gifts, wrap them, and bring to the church located at 200
E. Harmon St. The church is open from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Monday
through Friday. You can also drop them off at the library

with the Cop
The Paulding Police Department’s annual “Shop with

Christmas shopping.
Paulding Police Chief Randy Crawford said that dona-
tions that have been collected in jars at ALCO Department Store
will be combined with donations through radio station Mix 98.1’s
Christmas for Kids program.
The police department contacts the school and Job and Family
Services before deciding on a list of families to contact for this project,
according to Crawford.
At least half of each child’s money must be spent on clothing. Any
money left over is given to families as gift certificates to Chief
Supermarket.
“We would be happy to receive any donations to help
more kids. We don’t want anyone left out.” Officers will
take the kids shopping, but a date has not yet been set.
For information, call 419-399-3311.

A Child of Mine
I will lend you, for a little time,
A child of Mine, he said.
For you to love the while he lives,
And mourn for when he’s dead.
It maybe six or seven years,
Or thirty-two or three.
But will you till I call him back,
Take care of him for Me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you,
And should his stay be brief,
You have his lovely memories,
As solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay,
Since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught down there,
I want this child to learn.
I’ve looked this wide world over,
In my search for teachers true
And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes,
I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love,
Nor think the labor vain.
Nor hate me when I come
To take him home again?
I fancied that I heard you say,
Dear Lord, Thy will be done!
For all the joy Thy child shall bring,
The risk of grief we’ll run.
We’ll shelter him with tenderness,
We’ll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we’ve known,
Forever grateful stay.
Bt should the angels call for him
Much sooner than we planned,
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes,
And try to understand.
Love you forever,
Mom, Frank, Laura & Mick

The Amish Cook
By: Lovina Eicher
It is hard to believe that
Thanksgiving is almost upon
us! Homemade pumpkin roll
is a dessert I always remem-
ber my Aunt Lovina (who I
was named after) making and
now it is something I enjoy
making. Thanksgiving would
not seem the same without
the turkey being stuffed with
dressing and pumpkin pie for
dessert. Joe likes his pump-
kin pie with a dab of ice
cream.
I hope everyone has a
blessed and enjoyable
Thanksgiving. Give these
recipes a try!
PUMPKIN PIE
1/2 cup pumpkin
4 egg yolks, beaten
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons flour
1 pint of milk, scalded
4 egg whites
Preheat oven to 400°. In a
large bowl, mix pumpkin,
egg yolks, pumpkin pie
spice, vanilla, sugar, salt,
flour and milk together until
mixture is smooth in consis-
tency. Fold in egg whites last.
Bake for 10 minutes and
then reduce heat to 350° until
pie is set, about 40 minutes.
THANKSGIVING
DRESSING
4 eggs
1/4 cup diced carrots
1/4 cup diced celery
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cups of hot water (potato
water, makes a better flavor)
2 tablespoons of chicken
soup base
10 slices of crumbled bread
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
Dissolve soup base into
hot water. Add rest of ingre-
dients and mix well. Pour
into greased casserole dish or
cake pan and bake at 350° for
40 to 45 minutes.
PUMPKIN ROLL
This recipe was a hit in the
original Amish Christmas
booklet. A pumpkin roll takes
a bit of work to make, but the
work is worth the sweet re-
ward!
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2/3 cup pumpkin
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup pecans (optional)
Confectioners sugar
Whip eggs for 5 minutes.
Add sugar, lemon juice and
pumpkin. Mix well. Add re-
maining ingredients except
pecans.
Grease jelly roll pan. Place
waxed paper in jelly roll pan,
making sure waxed paper is
extended beyond both ends of
pan. Pour batter into waxed
paper lined jelly roll pan.
Cover batter with pecans.
Bake at 375° for 15 minutes.
When baked, remove from
waxed paper immediately and
roll in a towel that has been
sprinkled with confectioners
sugar. Be sure to roll towel and
cake together. When cool, un-
roll and spread with filling.
Filling:
8 ounces of softened cream
cheese
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1 cup of confectioners sugar
4 tablespoons margarine
Combine cream cheese,
vanilla, confectioners sugar and
margarine. Beat until smooth
and creamy.

In My Opinion
Being thankful
for our military
During my interviews with those who have served our
country, one of the most touching aspects has always been
their description of life at war during the holidays. On one
hand, they love to tell
about the big Thanksgiv-
ing and Christmas dinners
that were served in mess
halls and other gathering
places – ham, potatoes,
vegetable, pie, and all of
the trimmings, maybe
even some special treats on the side.
But none of that “stuff” could begin to replace the
heartache of being thousands of miles away from family
members during what was supposed to be one of the biggest
family days of the year.
“The food was good but our hearts ached,” said one vet-
eran.
“Some guys would get mail from home at that time and
others didn’t. You always felt bad for the ones that didn’t,”
said another.
“You kept thinking about how everyone was together
back home eating good food, laughing, and having a great
time. It was a big reminder of how far away you were and
lonely you felt,” said yet another.
As we approach Thanksgiving this week, there are many
hearts that are going to feel like that again, military person-
nel in Afghanistan, Iraq and other points away from Ameri-
can soil. And then there is the matter of empty chairs at
family gatherings, this side of the pain, families that are
gathered without the presence of their loved one away from
home.
The least we can do as Thanksgiving approaches is to:
• Pray for those whose hearts will be lonely.
• Contact the family of a one who is serving our country
and let them know how thankful we are for their sacrifice,
encourage them to pass on our message when they have
contact with their loved one.
• Support and get involved with Christmas giving ef-
forts to military personnel.
• Make long range plans as to how we can continue to
encourage those who are serving once the burst of holiday
giving is over.
Of course, similar expressions could be made to those
who are in nursing homes, hospitals and other unnatural sit-
uations during the special holiday, not to mention those who
are willing to work and serve the suffering as nurses, aides,
medical technicians and other giving professions.
Thanksgiving is that – giving. Let’s remember that as we
stuff ourselves with an overabundance of food, watch foot-
ball, and enjoy the luxuries of freedom this week. Some-
where, someone is suffering and lonely for our privileges ...
say a prayer and reach out.

Help those in
need this season
Happy Thanksgiving and welcome to the late fall season.
That is what some of us are saying as we plan for the holiday
seasons of Thanksgiving and Christmas. We think of lots of
good things to eat and drink as well as lots of good times to-
gether with family and friends.
NEWS FLASH: On the Saturday before Thanksgiving, the
Grover Hill Food Pantry pro-
vided food for 137 families
which consisted of 51 senior
citizens, 232 adults, and 171
children for a total of 454
people. These good people
came from all around Pauld-
ing County but most were
from the villages close to
Grover Hill. The price of gas is so high that some could barely
afford the gas.
Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas will not be as
happy or merry for some who are hungry, cold and possibly liv-
ing in their cars. I heard at a meeting this past week that the
government is cutting the funding to most of our social service
agencies. You may say, “It’s about time the government be-
comes more responsible.” That is correct too, but where is it
going to pinch? My opinion is that the needy on the receiving
end will feel the cuts as they are refused food stamps, and
aren’t helped with their rent or heating bills.
I am doing fine this wondrous season, things are just right
and I really do not want or need anything that I cannot go out
and buy. As you can see from the numbers at our food pantry
on Saturday, it is not the case for everyone. Some of the needy
are already starting to feel the pinch of government funding
cuts and the numbers are going to continue to rise as the State
of Ohio continues to cut spending to balance the budget.
You may ask what you can do. In my opinion, you can help
the food pantries around Paulding County by donating your
time and resources. Many of you who are reading this column
already are doing that, but the need is growing, as the govern-
ment agencies have less to give the needy, something has to
happen to put food on their tables. I think the food pantries of
Paulding County are doing okay at the present time, but Grover
Hill spends more on food to pass out each month as the num-
bers we serve continue to rise.
As an example, we distribute 1,200-1,500 lbs. of meat each
month. It has been wonderful the last few months to be able to
get some free venison from one of the programs of the Ohio
Department of Natural Resources – thank you, hunters, for do-
nating your deer to the needy, but at the end of deer season, we
will need to buy more meat.
If everyone chips in a little, it will help fill the gap and give
the needy people of Paulding County the food they need to be
able to enjoy the wondrous joy of the season. Please donate –
everything helps!

The Spice Rack
By: Dortha Schaefer
Anniversaries
Birthdays
Do you have legends and
stories in your families? The
kind you have heard and re-
peated over and over
through the years? Georgia
Kohart, who writes for a
neighboring newspaper,
says her family has fun with
such entertaining bits told
and retold in her family.
My uncle, who hunted up
facts about the family tree,
proclaimed he had never
found a single horse thief in
the line. This finding was to
our liking, of course. Our
parents and grandparents
added to our stories from
our childhood on. Mary
Jane Budd Kerns Smith, a
great-grandmother, told of
teaching school. She quali-
fied due to the fact that she
had finished the fourth
grade reader.
Another of her tales was
told of Husband Number
One who went off to the
Civil War, leaving her with
two children. When he re-
turned he was suffering with
consumption, which he
gave, not on purpose, to one
of the daughters, Lilibeth.
She died and so did he. That
grandmother was the one
whose quaint language al-
ways fascinated me. She
said things like, “Fetch me
my reticule, child.”
My mother taught school
eight years before I was
born, her first born. She
qualified for the job by at-
tending Normal School at
Ada for six weeks her first
year out of high school at
the age of 17.
Another quaint relative
(or so she seemed) warned
me against wearing stock-
ings below my knees as this
practice would give me
rheumatism in my later
years. She was right!
In the Schaefer side of
stories told and retold was
one about a tiny son, Fritz,
who awoke in the night to
the screams of FIRE! The
home was indeed on fire. He
picked up his little blanket
and took off down the road
to the neighbors, where he
found a nice couch and went
to sleep there. In the excite-
ment, no one could find
Fritz, so they all began to
believe he was burned up in
the fire. His recovery was a
great item for celebration,
and a story for telling in
years to come.
A relative also relates on
occasion about hearing her
dryer make loud thumping
noises as it was ending the
cycle. When she opened the
door to check as to the
racket, she found a large rat
in bad shape. Screaming for
her husband, she slammed
the door and ran from the
laundry room, leaving the
clean-up job for him to do.
• • •
Henry tells a tale of cat
and mouse, one often re-
peated in his family. He
owned a large peaceful tom-
cat named Otis, an animal
who followed his family
traits by catching mice. He
never ate any of them, just
played with them until they
were unconscious and no
fun anymore, at which time
he would let them go. This
is what they believe hap-
pened during Otis’ adven-
tures.
He took the unconscious
body of one of his mice and
laid it on Marcia’s chest,
where he often spent part of
a night, Marcia being
Henry’s daughter and, at the
time of the story, asleep in
her bed. The mouse, not
being at death’s door,
aroused and crawled under
the covers, searching a safe
place to hide. This action
awoke Marcia, who went
into hysterics when she real-
ized what was going on.
• • •
Garage door openers are a
vital item in the life of
many. They save many a
step for the householders
and if they quit working,
cause much disgust. Such
was the case with our
opener. Several people tried
fixing it, but with no suc-
cess. One cold dark night,
when we had spent the
evening at the house of
friends, we returned to find
the opener was up to its old
tricks – it wouldn’t open.
The Mister was preparing to
leave the car when I sug-
gested, “If I were going to
open that door by hand, I
would just give the thing a
good swift kick instead.”
Grumbling loudly, the
Mister climbed from the car,
walked the few steps to the
door and gave it a good
swift kick as recommended
by me. It opened.

HOW DO YOU SPELL FAJITA?
Years ago when I was in
school, two of my favorite
classes were English and
spelling. We used to have
spelling bees and the one left
standing who had spelled all
the words correctly was the
winner. Sometimes I won,
but was almost always in the
top three.
I remember in English
class we’d have to go up to
the blackboard and diagram
sentences. Does anyone re-
member doing that in school?
I loved it and I think I could
still diagram a sentence
today. There was the subject,
predicate, verb, adverbs,
nouns and pronouns.
It has been said that the
English language is hard to
learn and speak. When our
children say their first words,
we are all so proud, espe-
cially if they say the word
“Mama” first. My youngest
daughter, Susie, said “mama”
first. I was so proud and
happy until I figured out that
she was saying the word
“mama” for Mom, monster
and milk.
My son, Tom, believe it or
not, and for whatever reason,
said the word “calendar” for
one of his first words.
Speaking English is one
thing, but the spelling and the
understanding of what a
word means is another. I am
responsible for typing the
school menus here in the of-
fice.
One of the hardest words
for me to spell on the menus
is “fajita.” I have spelled that
word wrong so many times,
it has become an office joke.
The word is even written on
my menu folder and I still
misspell it.
With five different schools
in the county with all differ-
ent menus, you can bet fajitas
will be on one of their
weekly menus.
To me, it makes more
sense to spell the word fajita
just like it sounds, “fahita.”
This is just one of words that
has no rhyme or reason on
the spelling. The best way for
me to handle the fahita
spelling problem is to yell at
Erica Habern, the knower of
all things good, “Hey Erica,
how do you spell fajita?”
It is such a joke around
here now that I just automat-
ically ask her how to spell it.
She will sigh loudly and say,
“Look on your folder.”
There are so many words
that are pronounced the
same, but have totally differ-
ent meanings. I know that
some words I have been say-
ing wrong for years. One of
them is “coldcrock.” I always
heard from Grandma that it
meant to hit someone with a
crock (bowl). Therefore,
“coldcrock.”
I wrote the word coldcrock
in an article once and I was
shocked to learn that it was
actually coldcock (to knock
another unconscious or
knock down with force). To
me, it makes no sense why
someone would change that
old word coldcrock to cold-
cock. I totally disagree.
The other day I was using
the word detour in a sentence
(“the rain did not detour any-
one from attending”). The
proofreader corrected detour
to deter. Of course, I had my
own arguments about how to
spell detour and why it
should be spelled my way.
However, some of the word
spellings depend on the
meaning. I seriously believe
that people make up words
just to confuse us.
For instance, what do you
think of these words?
• The bandage was
wound around the wound.
• The farm was used to
produce produce.
• The dump was so full
that it had to refuse more re-
fuse.
• We must polish the Pol-
ish furniture.
• He could lead if he
would get the lead out.
• The soldier decided to
desert his dessert in the
desert.
• Since there is no time
like the present, he thought it
was time to present the pres-
ent.
• A bass was painted on
the head of the bass drum.
• When shot at, the dove
dove into the bushes.
• I did not object to the
object.
These are just a few words
that sound alike, but have dif-
ferent meanings. Now, I know
in our world of technology,
we can use the spell check on
our computers to make sure a
word is spelled right. But do
one thing for me, try spell
checking fajita and see what
your computer tells you!
Do you think the English
language is hard to learn to
speak? Have you ever dia-
gramed a sentence or had a
spell down at school? Do you
know how to spell fajita? Let
me know and I’ll give you a
Penny for Your Thoughts.

Why turkey on Thanksgiving?
By Jim Lopshire
OSU Extension educator
When thinking of Thanks-
giving, the first word that
comes to many is turkey. Ac-
cording to the United States
Department of Agriculture,
more than 45 million turkeys
are cooked and eaten in the
United States at Thanksgiv-
ing. This number represents
one-sixth of all the turkeys
sold in the United States each
year.
Today, most people will
prepare and consume a white
domestic turkey. The domes-
tic turkey lost its ability to fly
through selective breeding
that created heavier, broad-
breasted birds, a feature
much desired by chefs and
commercial turkey produc-
ers.
The shorter legs of the do-
mestic turkey also mean it
can not run as well as its wild
cousin. In contrast to the
heavier domestic bird, the
wild turkey is slim, tall and
long-legged.
The wild turkey is native to
eastern United States. His-
tory is not clear on why
turkey is eaten on Thanksgiv-
ing Day. What we know is
that turkey actually did not
become a part of the Ameri-
can Thanksgiving tradition
until the 1860s. In fact,
turkey did not achieve its
prominent status as the cen-
terpiece of the holiday meal
until after World War II.
Wild turkeys were a vital
food source to Native Amer-
icans, but became extinct in
Ohio in 1904. To re-establish
a wild turkey population in
Ohio, wildlife biologists with
the Ohio Department of Nat-
ural Resources began reintro-
ducing wild turkeys to our
state in 1956. Their efforts in-
cluded trapping wild turkeys
outside Ohio and then releas-
ing them into the state’s
forested lands. Woodlands in
Athens, Hocking and Vinton
counties were the first to re-
ceive the out-of-state birds.
In time, as Ohio’s flocks
developed their own steady
populations, wildlife man-
agers trapped and trans-
planted “home-grown” wild
turkeys to other parts of the
state. Today, wild turkeys can
be heard and hunted in all 88
Ohio counties.
Some interesting facts on
wild turkeys:
• Found in all of the
lower 48 states and Hawaii.
• Can fly at speeds up to
55 mph.
• Can run at speeds of at
least 19 mph.
• Have good eyesight.
They see approximately the
same distance as humans, but
they can pick out minute de-
tails.
• Have excellent hearing,
but a poor sense of smell.
• Roost in trees at night
for protection from predators.
Few holidays embody
American traditions like
Thanksgiving. The bountiful
feast, the time spent with
your family, the pies, the
breads, the stuffing, and of
course, the turkey.
One wonders if the
Thanksgiving feast would be
the same if Ben Franklin had
gotten his wish for the gob-
bling bird to be our national
symbol.
More than 1,300
see Festival of Trees
One of the best kept secrets
in Paulding County is the John
Paulding Historical Society, lo-
cated on Fairground Drive.
Last weekend, more than 1,300
children and adults came to
view the Festival of Trees, and
many of the visitors remarked
that they had never been to the
museum before.
Two buildings were deco-
rated with the theme “Christ-
mas Bells Are Ringing.” The
majority of all of the decora-
tions have been donated over
the years by local residents and
brought out of storage.
Over 70 trees were deco-
rated by local business,
schools, individuals, churches,
healthcare groups, Scouts, area
charities and the committee.
There is always room for one
more.
The favorite tree vote went
to the Caring and Sharing Food
Pantry of Paulding. The fa-
vorite tree vote for children
went to the Paulding/Oakwood
second graders.
More than 30 items were do-
nated for the silent auction.
The museum hosted three
meals this year with a good at-
tendance at each one.
Anyone who missed the live
nativity on Saturday night
missed a real treat. The little
donkeys were shy but deter-
mined and the pygmy goats
didn’t have a care as long as
they had good straw and hay to
munch on. Was that how it was
the night of the birth of our
Lord?
To complement the live na-
tivity, Bob Merriman of Oak-
wood displayed several
nativity scenes from his collec-
tion.
Entertainment was provided
nightly and on Sunday after-
noon.
Several children were able to
sit on Santa’s lap and tell him
their wish list, have their pic-
ture taken and receive a treat
bag.
The Talking Tree came in
out of the forest and was a
highlight of the weekend. The
museum has the original and
he has been around a long time.
The John Paulding Histori-
cal Society Museum is kept
open by donations and volun-
teers. This Festival of Trees
weekend was successful be-
cause of the faithful followers
who return year after year, a
great committee, and faithful
museum volunteers.
Next year’s theme will be
“Angels Say ‘Halo’ To Christ-
mas.” The festival will be held
it the same weekend (Nov. 17-
20, 2011); mark your calendar
now. The festival committee is
always open to suggestions and
for volunteers to help on the
committee.
A membership campaign is
being planned for the new year.
To join, call the museum on
Tuesdays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.,
or any member or tree commit-
tee member. Plans for the an-
nual wine and cheese tasting
night are also under way for the
new year.
Committee members this
year were Rose Munger, Di-
anne Stouffer, Gene Olwin,
Louella Thomas, Rhonda and
Erica Smalley, Anna Kauser
and Eileen Kochensparger.

Dave and Illa Rush have seen the Vagabond go from a truck stop to a family restaurant during
their family’s 60-year management. Dave’s parents purchased the local landmark on old U.S. 24
and U.S. 127 in 1950. The restaurant has been under family management ever since.

Vagabond has 60th anniversary
By JAROD ROSEBROCK
“The Vag” has long been a favorite eating spot for area diners.
The restaurant features weekly specials and family dining seven
days a week.
Feature Writer
CECIL – For more than
half a century, customers
who wanted a late night or
early morning meal, needed
a quick stop for gas or simply
wanted good, home-style
food could find it at the
Vagabond Village located on
County Road 424 (old U.S.
24) on the Maumee River
northeast of Antwerp and
south of Sherwood.
The Vagabond is celebrat-
ing its 60th anniversary
under the same family of
owners this year. It has been
an area landmark since it
opened in 1950.
A restaurant was first built
at the location of the
Vagabond in the early 1940s
by two school teachers who
ran the business during the
summer. After a few years
they sold it to Herb and Flo
Benson. Benson built the
current building in 1946. It
was a two-story structure
with the downstairs as a
restaurant and the upstairs
containing 10 hotel rooms.
In 1950, Erwin and Mar-
garet Rush purchased the
Vagabond Village and lived
in the stone house located
next to the restaurant. Ac-
cording Erwin and Mar-
garet’s son and current owner
Dave Rush, his parents had
been in the restaurant busi-
ness for years owning loca-
tions in Fort Wayne and Indi-
anapolis before taking over
the Vagabond.
The building itself was a
lot smaller then. The dining
room wasn’t built and there
were only some counter
stools and a few small tables.
Customers could purchase a
slice of pie for 20 cents and
get a cup of coffee for a
nickel.
The Vagabond was a pop-
ular 24-hour truck stop when
it was first opened. Trucker
drivers would come in at all
hours to play slots and watch
black and white cowboy
movies.
Shortly after the Rushes
took over, the state outlawed
slots, but the Vagabond con-
tinued to prosper. A new
kitchen was added in 1954,
and perhaps the biggest addi-
tion was the construction of
the gas station in 1956.
The elder Rushes retired
from the restaurant business
in 1959. While they still
owned the business they
started just nine years earlier,
they handed management of
the Vagabond over to Dave
and his wife, Illa. They added
the 85-seat dining room in
1985 and the building took
on the look it still has today.
Dave and Illa took over as of-
ficial owners of the restau-
rant in 1988 when Margaret
passed away.
The Vagabond celebrated
its 50th anniversary in 2000
and was enjoying continued
success. It was a well-known,
24-hour landmark in the
community, but according to
Dave, after the 9/11 attacks it
started seeing a decline in
business. He says people
stopped going out as much
after dark and truck business
started declining because the
truckers started eating fast
food to get a quicker meal.
The Vagabond stopped its
24-hour service soon after
9/11. It is now open 6 a.m. –
9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and
6 a.m. – 10 p.m. on Friday
and Saturday.
With truck business on the
decline, Dave and Illa closed
the gas station a couple years
ago. They say the move of
U.S. 24 hasn’t affected their
business much. They say
most of their business has
been local for a while now
and with the truckers already
opting for fast food, it didn’t
change a whole lot.
The restaurant has now
crossed over into a third gen-
eration of the Rush family.
Dave and Illa’s daughter,
Lyn, has taken on the respon-
sibility of manager.
Despite ending 24-hour
service and closing its gas
station, the Vagabond Village
is still a landmark in area.
Any business that can stay
open for 60 years and
weather everything that has
changed since 1950 must be
a restaurant that a community
feels it can’t live without.
The Rushes credit their
success to good food, a good
reputation and all of the sup-
port they get from their won-
derful, loyal customers. It
could also be that customers
like eating at a restaurant that
has stood the test of time and
has done so under the man-
agement of one family.
The signature dish at the
Vagabond is its Hobo Burger,
which is a triple layer sand-
wich that contains two beef
patties, sauce and a special
bun. “The Vag” has specials
each day of the weekend, in-
cluding a fish fry on Fridays,
prime rib and steak with soup
and salad on Saturdays, and a
chicken buffet on Sundays.
Antwerp to interview
for new treasurer
By STEVE MAJOR
Correspondent
ANTWERP – The Antwerp
Local School Board identified
four candidates to interview
for the treasurer and chief fi-
nancial officer (CFO) position
at its monthly meeting on
Nov. 18.
The opening was created
with the impending retirement
of Jane Limber as of Dec. 3.
A total of 17 applications
were received for the position.
“We have excellent candi-
dates who have both experi-
ence in schools and state
treasurers’ licenses,” said su-
perintendent Mark Hartman.
“We will start interviews on
Nov. 23 and plan to have a
new treasurer in place on Jan.
1.”
The board approved three
school trips, including: 9-12
grade band and choir trip to
Disney World May 3-8;
eighth grade trip to Washing-
ton, D.C. on May 9-14; and
senior class trip to Gatlinburg,
Tenn., March 23-26.
In personnel action, the
board approved Matt Hor-
mann as freshman boys’ bas-
ketball coach and Tim Copsey
as assistant boys’ basketball
coach for the upcoming bas-
ketball season.
Hartman reported to the
board that work on the cli-
mate controls at the school
continues.
“We will have proper cli-
mate controls for the basket-
ball games so that it’s not
freezing or too hot for players
and fans,” explained Hart-
man.
The board also heard of
several upcoming schools
events, including: Dec. 13, 7
p.m. the holiday choir con-
cert; Dec. 15, at 9:15 a.m. the
seventh and eighth grade
spelling bee; and Dec. 17, last
day of the semester before
holiday break with dismissal
for grades 6-12 at 1:15 p.m.
and for K through 5 at 2:15
p.m.
The administration reported
to the board that 140 middle
and high school students
made the honor roll in the first
term; this despite the fact that
qualifications for the honor
roll have been made stricter.
Hartman reported to the
board that initial work on the
school’s proposal for federal
education program Race to the
Top funding had been com-
pleted. Ohio has been awarded
$400 million from the program
and Antwerp hopes to receive
up to $100,000 of those funds
over the next four years.
“Our initial scope of work
was returned to us by the state
for further work. We have
completed the revision and the
work has been approved. Next,
this spring we will formalize
the work on teacher and prin-
cipal evaluation,” said Hart-
man.
The next school board meet-
ing will be at 6 p.m. Thursday,
Dec. 16.
At the SWCD annual meet-
ing, James Pendergrast Sr.
was honored for his longtime
work as a drainage contractor
and support of SWCD.
Retired teachers
set open house
The Paulding County Re-
tired Teachers’ Association
will hold an open house from
9-11 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 1
at the Youth Leadership
Building at the Paulding
County Fairground.
There will be no business
meeting, but members may

pantry or donations for the
scholarship fund.
R.S.V.P.’s may be sent to
Marcia Pressler at
marciap@paulding-net.com, but

QUESTION: How do I
train my 2-year-old to
clean up after herself?
She’ll go into her sisters’
room and destroy it, and
won’t help clean up unless
I threaten to punish her.
Then she only picks up a
couple of things before
getting distracted.
Frankly, it’s easier for me
to clean it up myself. My
older girls complain that
they have to clean up but
their little sister doesn’t. I
know this isn’t fair, but
what else do I do?
JULI: As any parent
knows, the most challeng-
ing task of raising a toddler
is setting boundaries. It is
important to teach your
daughter that she has to
clean up the messes that she
makes, but that might be an
impossible task if the
messes are too big. Part of
teaching your 2-year-old re-
sponsibility is not allowing
her to get into trouble or
messes that are too big for
her to clean up.
To start with, limit her
play areas. If she’s going to
trash her sisters’ room, then
make that room off-limits.
Keep play areas to her own
room or a family room.
Even in those areas, limit
the number of toys she has
access to at a given time.
She can choose to play with
the dollhouse or the blocks,
but not have access to every
toy in the house. Consis-
tently ask her to clean those
up immediately before she
moves on to the next thing.
What she’s capable of
handling is going to grow
with time. The lesson of
cleaning up a few toys will
transfer to greater responsi-
bility in years to come. Re-
sist that temptation to
swoop in and clean up for
her. The extra time and ef-
fort now will be well worth
it as your daughter grows.
QUESTION: I was aston-
ished to read how much
childhood obesity is in-
creasing. Do you have any
suggestions for parents
who want to help their
kids avoid this health
nightmare?
Jim: Rather than focusing
on the obvious, like eating
well-balanced meals and
keeping junk food to a min-
imum, let’s look at some-
thing that moms and dads
might tend to overlook:
snack time. Every situation
is different, but research
suggests that on the whole,
many children are simply
snacking too much.
Health Affairs reports that
kids are taking in signifi-
cantly more calories from
snack foods today than they
did in the 1970s. Other sta-
tistics show that half of
American children snack
four times a day, with some
kids eating almost con-
stantly – as many as 10
snacks a day! It’s not likely
that these kids are hungry
that often. Researchers be-
lieve they’re simply eating
the food because it’s there,
almost as a form of enter-
tainment. Obviously, when
kids spend so much time
snacking, they’re less likely
to eat a balanced meal at
breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The snacks themselves
are a problem, as well.
Cookies and cakes are the
most popular snacks among
kids, with chips and other
salty items running a close
second. Children are also
drinking a lot more fruit
juice. That might sound
good on the surface, but
most of these drinks are
loaded with excess sugar
and are much less healthy
than an actual piece of fruit.
An after-school snack
isn’t a bad thing. But most
people would agree that
snacks are no substitute for
a healthy and well-balanced
meal. And of course, the
snack itself should be nutri-
tious. Parents need to make
sure they’re setting a good
example for their kids in
this area. Don’t expect your
child to be happy with an
apple if you’re snacking on
candy bars and soda!

‘Winning the Battle for a Generation’
By Rick Jones
executive director, Defiance
Area Youth for Christ
Fiorello LaGuardia was mayor of New York
City during the Depression, and he was quite
a character. He would ride the city fire trucks,
take entire orphanages to baseball games and
whenever the city newspapers went on strike,
he would get on the radio and read the Sunday
“funnies” to the children.
At any rate, one bitter cold winter’s night in
1935, Mayor LaGuardia turned up in a night
court that served the poorest ward in the city,
dismissed the judge for the evening and took
over the bench himself. After he heard a few
cases, a tattered old woman was brought be-
fore him, accused of stealing a loaf of bread.
She told LaGuardia that her daughter’s hus-
band had deserted her, her daughter was sick
and her grandchildren were starving. But the
shopkeeper, from whom the bread was stolen,
insisted on pressing charges. “My store is in a
very bad neighborhood, your Honor,” he said.
“She’s got to be punished in order to teach
other people a lesson.”
The mayor sighed. He turned to the old
woman and said, “I’ve got to punish you,” he
said. “The law makes no exception – $10 or
10 days in jail.”
But even as he spoke, LaGuardia was reach-
ing into his pocket and pulling out a $10 bill.
“Here is the woman’s fine,” he said, “and fur-
thermore, I’m going to fine everyone in this
court room 50 cents for living in a city where
a person has to steal bread so that her grand-
children can eat. Mr. Bailiff, collect the fines
and give them to the defendant.”
The following day, the New York Times re-
ported that $47.50 was turned over to the be-
wildered old woman. It was given by the
red-faced store owner, some 70 petty crimi-
nals, people with traffic violations and city po-
licemen – and they all gave their mayor a
standing ovation as they handed over their
money.
That’s how it will be with God’s world. Just
when it seems that all hope is lost, and good-
ness and mercy shall never win, the Great
Judge will come to set things right, deciding
for the hungry and the meek of the earth.
The scriptures describe God’s passion for
truth and justice this way ... Micah 6:8 (NIV),
“And what does the LORD require of you? To
act justly and to love mercy and to walk
humbly with your God.”

THE PILGRIMS AT PLYMOUTH
The Mayflower ship had
been sailing since 1616 in the
various trades, including haul-
ing smelly fish, turpentine and
tar. Weighing only 180 tons
and only about 106 feet long,
the Plymouth voyage must
have been very rough.
When she was engaged to
come to America in 1620 with
the 102 passengers crammed
on board with their goods and
supplies, it was surely a trial
for everyone. They came
across the North Atlantic to
avoid pirates who frequented
the more temperate latitudes.
The following is a small bit of
some of their stories.
Most of the Pilgrims were
Separatists who were opposed
to the forms of the Church of
England, but spent most of the
Sabbath in informal services
combining social and religious
activities. Only three of the
company were from Scrooby
– William and Mary Brewster
and William Bradford – and 41
came from Leyden. The others
were “Strangers” largely from
London and southeastern Eng-
land. They were not Brown-
ists; neither were they
Separatists of any rival school.
On the contrary, they were
good members of the Church
of England for the most part.
Christopher Martin was a Pu-
ritan. No Bluebloods were
among them and they wer the
“pathetic interest in the coat-
of-arms.”
Among thee all aware of
poverty and “Strangers” were
three Pilgrims: Myles Standish,
John Alden and Priscilla
Mullins. Priscilla may have
been a Separatist as her father
was one of the first to sign up
and pay in his money. William
Mullins (“Molines” as he
wrote it) was a Huguenot and
came from France to join the
company. Priscilla’s future hus-
band, John Alden, was a “hop-
full yonge man” of 20 from
Harwich, Essex. He was re-
membered by his family as tall,
blond, and very powerful in
physique, and one of the more
powerful men in Plymouth. He
was a cooper by trade. Getting
ready for the voyage, he tended
carefully to the precious barrels
of beer, plain water and strong
cider in the hold.
Myles Standish was a hard-
ened professional soldier of 36
or so being about five years
Bradford’s senior. He was
called “Captain Shrimpe,” be-
cause he was short with red
hair and red complexion when
he got angry. It appears he was
born about 1584. He married
his wife, Rose, and at the end
of his life left many estates in
Lancashire and on the Isle of
Man. He never joined the
Church at Plymouth – he may
have been Catholic.
Other “Strangers” were
James Chilton, a tailor of Can-
terbury, with his wife and
daughter. Samuel Hopkins had
the largest family on board of
Gloucestershire (London). One
of Edward Winslow’s younger
brothers, Gilbert, had joined
the ship at Southampton, as
had Peter Browne, ancestor of
John Brown of Osawatomie,
who came from Essex. John
Billington of London had the
distinction as the only Pilgrim
father to be hanged.
Besides the Saints and
Strangers, a third group con-
sisted of the hired men. Five
were under contract to remain
in the colony for a year. They
were not regarded as settlers or
members of the company.
The indentured servants
were a larger group set off from
the others. Their indentures
usually ran for seven years;
they were fed, clothed and
housed by their masters, but re-
ceived no wages, being virtu-
ally slaves by their masters.
Frequently, they were bought,
sold and hired out as such.
There were 18 servants on
board the Mayflower and 11 of
them were strong young men.
Most of them belonged to the
Leyden group, which suggests
that is the Saints were poor, the
Strangers were even still
poorer. Historians tell us that as
a man of his wealth, John
Carver had 4 servants – for his
wife, his boy and a maid; for
himself, Roger Wilder and
John Howland, “a lustie yonge
man,” who quickly made a
name for himself at Plymouth.
The William Whites had
brought two, as had the
Winslows, one being George
Soule of Eckington, Worcester-
shire, who was destined, like
Howland, to rise to some
prominence after he had served
his time.
Lastly, Isaac Allerton and
Deacon Samuel Fuller had one
servant each. Among the
Strangers only three had the
means to transport bond slaves.
Christopher Martin and
William Mullins each had one
while Stephen Hopkins had
two, Edward Dotey and Ed-
ward Leister, both of London.
In this servant group were
four small waifs by the name of
More, poor orphans of London,
who were living with Thomas
Weston when they were
dragged off quite as if they
were debtors or criminals sen-
tenced to be transported to the
colonies. The mayor of Lon-
don felt this relieved the pres-
sure of the population in the
poorer quarters of the city. One
of the waifs was put into the
Winslow’s household, a second
into Carver’s was Richard
More and another nameless
brother was given to the Brew-
sters. Only Richard was alive a
few months later and he lived
to an old age.
All of these Saints and
Strangers, hired hands and in-
dentured servants, men and
women and children, down to
babes in arms, even in embryo
– should properly be numbered
in the Pilgrim company.
Though many are little more
than names, their ghosts de-
serve to be honored.
Note: Some of the info for
this item was taken from:
Saints and Strangers by
George Willison. Not all the
names of the 102 Pilgrims are
listed.

Payne Elementary honored veterans with the third grade presenting a Veterans Day program.
The program included students reciting poems honoring veterans, along with the entire student
body singing a variety of patriotic songs. The program also included a guest speaker, Sgt. Amber
Schuerman (left). She shared her experiences in the military, the military history in her family,
the reasons why she chose to be in the military, and the importance of being proud. Also attending
were her son Draven, and her father, Robert Schuerman, who also was in the military.
Antwerp Police Officer Gary Smiddy talks to a group of Paulding Middle School sixth graders
on the dangers of drugs. Officer Smiddy visited the classroom of Mr. Eric Deisler, sixth grade
wellness instructor, to discuss what to do if someone approaches them and asks them to do
drugs. He also discussed how to properly deal with that situation and instructed the class about
the ramifications of this type of illegal activity.
LOOKING FOR INFORMATION – This photo is believed to have been taken in Paulding County,
possibly in the 1890s. The sign appears to read “Northwood Union Sunday School.” Has any
reader ever heard of a Northwood Sunday School or Northwood School or church? It may have
been a lumber camp or town. If you have any information, please contact the Progress by email
at progress@progressnewspaper.org or by mail to P.O. Box 180, Paulding OH 45879.
VETERANS’ DAY ASSEMBLY AT ANTWERP – Antwerp Local School hosted its annual Veterans Day
Assembly on Thursday, Nov. 11 in the main gymnasium. Here, United States Marine Corps veteran
and featured speaker Peter Wales stands at attention during the playing of the Marine Corps fight
song. Wales delivered a powerful message that included bringing honor to veterans and the families
of veterans, both of whom have made great sacrifices to keep freedom alive and well in the USA. In
addition to Wales’ message, the assembly featured the presentation of colors done by the Antwerp
VFW Post 5087 Ladies Auxiliary, the traditional Armed Forces medley played in honor of each of the
branches of the armed services, and an educational message from Antwerp Elementary School prin-
cipal Travis Lichty. Prior to the assembly, lunch was served in the school auditeria for all interested
veterans and their spouses. Antwerp Local School officials would like to thank everyone who played
a part in making this another honorable event. A big thank you also goes out to the several veterans
who attended the ceremony that afternoon.

Wayne Trace Grover Hill Elementary held its annual Veterans
Day program Nov. 11. Despite the fog, there was a terrific turnout.
About 20 veterans attended to see the school pay tribute to all
who have served. All grade levels participated in some form for
this program. The afternoon ended with a special guest Eric
Dickerson, who is currently serving a term in the army. In August
2009, Dickerson was sent to Afghanistan, where he sustained
serious injuries due to a bombing. The students and staff were
honored to have Spc. Dickerson and all the veterans attend the
program. Pictured are Steven Torman and Spc. Eric Dickerson.
In Auglaize Sewer District, over
40 properties have unpaid fees
The Paulding County commissioners
took steps to obtain delinquent sewer dis-
trict fees in recent action.
Commissioners Tony Zartman, Tony
Burkley and Edward Straley voted to au-
thorize the county auditor to place certified
unpaid charges for the Auglaize River
Sewer District upon the first half 2011 real
property tax list and duplicate against the
property served by the connection.
Landowners in the Auglaize River
Sewer District have been receiving a
monthly invoice beginning November
2009 to partially defray costs incurred to
date for the project. Currently there are 41
landowners with charges at least 90 days
past due.
The commissioners met with Gary Ad-
kins and Rob Goshia from Paulding
County Hospital. Goshia presented the
Paulding County Hospital’s 2011 operat-
ing and capital budget for the commission-
ers’ review. It was approved as submitted.
Adkins noted the surgical suites will be
renovated in 2011. The current surgical
suites were built in the 1960s and are now
too small to accommodate medical equip-
ment. Adkins stated the emergency room
will be renovated in 2012.
He also noted the hospital operates on a
very low debt ratio when compared to
neighboring hospitals.
Adkins then explained the hospital will
be converting to an electronic medical
records system, as required by federal law.
He anticipates this system was allowed in
the 2010 budget and will be implemented
yet this year.
Adkins and Goshia then discussed the
economy and cuts in the Medicaid medical
benefits and the impact on the hospital.
Treasurer Lou Ann Wannemacher re-
viewed the 2010 CUSIP report. She noted
that many CUSIPs have been called due to
the drop in interest rates. Wannemacher
presented an estimated revenue report on
CDs and savings accounts report for 2010.
Receipts are down from what was esti-
mated.
Engineer Travis McGarvey gave an up-
date on wind farm status. He reported
Horizon expects its permit approval by
Nov. 18. A pre-construction meeting is ten-
tatively set for Nov. 19. A road agreement
from Horizon should be coming soon.
The commissioners extended the con-
tract with Solid Ground LLC for the re-
moval of snow accumulations for the
2010-11 winter season at the courthouse
with the same stipulations and fee as the
2009-10 winter season contract.
The commissioners approved the Title
XX County Profile as presented by Corey
Walker, director of Paulding County De-
partment of Job and Family Services, for
the two-year fiscal period July 1, 2011
through June 30, 2013.
Coty Moore met with the commission-
ers with questions about the dog kennel.
The commissioners met with Rachel
Perrott and Paul Smerud of Liberty Na-
tional Life Insurance Company. The com-
pany offers Worksite Advantage, an op-
tional group life insurance benefit. This
benefit is strictly voluntary for employees.
Liberty National offers tax sheltered pre-
miums through payroll deductions. Upon
retirement, there is no conversion or re-
qualifying and no increase in premium.
Notification will be included in a future
payroll and a date will be scheduled for in-
terested employees.
In other business, the board:
• met in executive session for 25 min-
utes with Prosecutor Joe Burkard to dis-
cuss legal matters, and on another occasion
for 15 minutes.
• authorized a supplemental appropria-
tion for the following from Pay-In #87164
and #87849 to Health Department/NAC-
CHO-Advanced Practice Center Grant,

Fun-raiser makes over $3,000 for 4-H
Organizers of the first an-
nual 4-H Fun-raiser on Nov. 6
consider it a “huge success.”
Over $3,000 was raised to sup-
port the Paulding County 4-H
program.
A live auction, featuring
over 50 items donated from
local businesses and 4-H clubs,
brought in nearly $2,000 by it-
self.
The day began with a host
of activities for participants to
enjoy and concluded with an
awards program.
Slated as the day’s events
were a straw maze, a cake
walk, a scavenger hunt, a pop
ring toss and face painting, a
corn hole tournament, pump-
kin chuckin’ contest, a coloring
contest and bobbing for apples.
Corn hole winners were
Chase Williams and Kaylee
Rohlf, both of Defiance. They
donated their winnings back to
the 4-H program.
Over 30 people of all ages
tested their ability to throw

Council discussed the possibility of an Oak-
wood senior center and decided that it would
be good for the residents of the area. Council
discussed the use of the Oakwood fire station
as a location for the center and advised Fire
Chief Kenny Thomas that the fire station was
too small and doesn’t have adequate parking
to handle this type of facility. Council voted
unanimously advising Thomas to tell Yeutter
that she should pursue the Twin Oaks United
Methodist Church as the prime location in lieu
of the fire station.
Police Chief Mark Figert reported the fol-
lowing calls received and cleared for the
month of October: unwanted person (2), theft
(1), keys locked in vehicle (1), fight (1), assist
other law enforcement dept. (1), breaking and
entering (1), assault (1), civil dispute (1), wel-
fare check (2), criminal mischief (1), dog
complaint (1), miscellaneous (4), trash com-
plaint (4), and unruly juvenile (5). Twenty-six
complaints were reported and cleared for the
month of October.
Tim Phillips, who is the licensed plant opera-
tor for the Oakwood water and wastewater
plants, gave council a report of the two plants’
operations. Phillips told council that he was sav-
ing the village some money by completing some
of the testing at the plant and that both systems
were operating within EPA specifications.
Phillips also thanked the village workers for all
their help and quick response.
The fire chief told council that all the Christ-
mas decorations are up and ready.
Thomas commended the firemen for an
“awesome” performance at the Superior Street
fire.
Village administrator John Keyes told coun-
cil that all fire hydrants are now flushed and
greased.
Council spent some time discussing the four-
wheeler nuisance problem in the Chapel Lane
area, the parking problem on North Third Street
during the time children are being picked up after
school, and the recent paving on Main Street.
The next regular Oakwood Village Council
Meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 13.
GAHANNA – AEP Ohio, a unit of American
Electric Power, has signed a long-term power
purchase agreement for wind energy with
Paulding Wind Farm II LLC, a subsidiary of
Horizon Wind Energy, a Houston-based com-
pany with over 20 wind farms across the United
States.
Through a 20-year agreement, AEP Ohio will
purchase all of the output from the 99-
megawatt (MW) facility that will be located in
Benton Township, Paulding County.
Review of the agreement will be included in
AEP Ohio’s upcoming ESP filing and it is sub-
ject to approval from the Public Utilities Com-
mission of Ohio. The project will consist of 55
V100-1.8 MW turbines to be manufactured by
Vestas. The facility is expected to be in com-
mercial operation by midsummer 2011. Terms
of both agreements were not disclosed.
“Incorporating renewable energy resources
such as wind into our generation fleet fits with
the vision of AEP Ohio and that of the state,”
said Joseph Hamrock, AEP Ohio president and
chief operating officer. “Ohio’s energy law pro-
motes the development of alternative energy by
establishing increasing benchmarks for renew-
able resources by 2025. Although we have pro-
posed to purchase up to 300 megawatts from
wind in our Electric Security Plan to meet the
state’s near-term benchmarks, the establishment
of this site reaffirms the potential for wind in
Ohio.”
In addition to the agreements with Paulding
Wind Farm II LLC, AEP Ohio has contracted for
other renewable energy resources. AEP Ohio has
a long-term power agreement for 100 MW of
wind energy from the Fowler Ridge II Wind
Farm located in Indiana and a long-term power
agreement for solar energy from the 10.08-MW
Wyandot Solar facility in Upper Sandusky.
AEP Ohio provides electricity to nearly 1.5
million customers of major AEP subsidiaries
Columbus Southern Power Company and Ohio
Power Company in Ohio, and Wheeling Power
Company in the northern panhandle of West Vir-
ginia. AEP Ohio is based in Gahanna. The com-
pany serves all or part of 61 counties in Ohio and
two in West Virginia.
Payne Council to discuss sewer plan
By AMBER McMANUS
Correspondent
PAYNE – Payne Village
Council met Monday.
The EPA notified the vil-
lage about implementation of
the nine minimum controls
for reducing the combined
sewer overflow impacts, and
the status of the long-term
control plan projects.
The Village of Payne is re-
quired to develop and submit
to the Ohio EPA an approv-
able Combined Sewer Oper-
ational (CSO) Plan. The
Combined Sewer Operation
and Maintenance Plan will
include a description of how
the system will be utilized, a
physical description of each
CSO, precautions to be taken
to prohibit any dry weather
overflows, documentation of
implementing the nine mini-
mum controls as outlined in
Ohio EPA’s CSO strategy,
and also keeping the EPA in-
formed of the ongoing effort
to improve the operation and
maintenance of the sewer
system.
The meeting with Pogge-
meyer Design Group to go
over the NPDES permit will
be announced at a later date.
The Friends of the Library
will have a Christmas walk
and bake sale to help with ex-
penses for the library roof. It
will be held from 9 a.m.-2
p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11. Tick-
ets may be purchased at the
Payne Library or Zublee’s
Pizza. For any information,
please call the Payne Library
at 419-263-2863.
There was a third and final
reading of Ordinance No.
2010-10 to accept the dedica-
tion of Parkway Drive as a
duly dedicated street. Coun-
cil unanimously approved the
measure.
A letter will be going to the
Paulding Township Trustees
stating that the Village of
Payne will not be pursuing a
contract for Sections 18, 19,
29, 30, 31 and 32 for EMS
coverage for the upcoming
2011 year.
As a reminder, there will
be no more leaf pick-up. Res-
idents who have leaves
should bag them up and take
them to the town park.
The budget meeting will
be held at 8 a.m. Dec. 4.
State approves construction
of Timber Road II Wind Farm
COLUMBUS – The Ohio
Power Siting Board (OPSB)
last week approved an agree-
ment authorizing Paulding
Wind Farm II LLC to con-
struct Timber Road II Wind
Farm in western Paulding
County.
The facility will consist of
up to 98 wind turbines spread
across 15,000 leased acres
with a combined generating
capacity of up to 150.4
megawatts (MW).
“The certification of Tim-
ber Road II is another step in
the right direction for Ohio’s
clean energy future,” said
OPSB chairman Alan R.
Schriber. “The wind farm
will contribute towards the
renewable goals included in
our state’s alternative energy
portfolio.”
On May 14, Paulding
Wind II filed an application
with the OPSB for a certifi-
cate to site a wind-powered
electric generation facility.
After conducting an investi-
gation of Paulding Wind II’s
proposal, OPSB staff submit-
ted a summary of its findings
and recommendation to the
board on Sept. 7.
At a local public hearing
held in Paulding on Sept. 22,
six witnesses provided testi-
mony about the project. Sup-
porters emphasized the
potential economic and envi-
ronmental benefits of the
project. Opponents voiced
concerns about potential neg-
ative consequences including
effects on public health and
property values.
On Oct. 5, Paulding Wind
II, OPSB Staff and the Ohio
Farm Bureau Federation filed
an agreement resolving all of
the outstanding issues in the
case. The agreement recom-
mended approval of the ap-
plication subject to 60
conditions intended to miti-
gate the ecological, environ-
mental and social impacts of
the project.
Included in these condi-
tions, Paulding Wind II must:
•Mitigate the potential im-
pacts of noise and shadow
flicker near the project area.
•Install and maintain ero-
sion and sedimentation con-
trol measures.
•Establish a process to re-
ceive project-related com-
plaints from the public.
•Meet all federal and state
requirements for construction
of turbines that may affect
navigable airspace, radar or
communications.
•Repair all impacted roads
and bridges following con-
struction.
•Repair damage to agricul-
tural land, including field tile.
•Decommission the facil-
ity, or individual turbines, at
the company’s expense.
Paulding Wind II expects
to begin the construction of
this project in December.
Construction will include a
new transformer substation
and underground electric col-
lection lines, as well as new
or improved access roads to
support the facility. The proj-
ect is expected to create 420
temporary construction jobs
and 43 full-time, permanent
positions.
The OPSB certificated the
construction of Timber Road
Wind Farm on Aug. 23.
