slated June 11
By JAROD ROSEBROCK Correspondent ANTWERP – The Second Annual Cleveland Street Rib Fest will take place in Antwerp on June 11. It will include all of the events from last year and a few new additions to the festivities as well. One such new addition will launch out the day’s events. The 5K Rib Fest River Run will start in the Oasis Bar and Grill parking lot at 9 a.m. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and participants can also preregister by contacting Benji Grant. Those who preregister will receive a 5K Rib Fest River Run T-shirt. Runners will go from the Oasis parking lot toward the river, and there will be maps and guides along the way to make sure everyone knows the route. Medals will be awarded to the top three in each of the seven male and female age categories. A cornhole tournament will be held at noon on Cleveland Street between the fire hall and VFW. Registration starts at 11 a.m., and participants can preregister for that by contacting Amy Lichty. DJ Larry Colley will also start playing music at noon and a number of area organizations will be selling food and drinks. The Antwerp Ball Association will sell pulled pork sandwiches, the Antwerp Athletic Boosters will have pop and water, Boy Scout Troop 143 will be selling steamed corn on the cob and lemonade shakeups, the United Way of Paulding County will sell curly fries and the Antwerp Fire Women’s Department Auxiliary will have brats and hot dogs. There will also be a beer pavilion available through the VFW starting at noon. The ribs go on sale at 3 p.m. Last year there were four rib vendors and they sold out of ribs in four hours. This year, rib fest organizers are ready for a larger turnout and have added a fifth vendor. The ribs will be on sale from 3-8 p.m. with three-rib samplers, half-slabs and fullslabs available for purchase. There will be two rib trophies – a People’s Choice and a Judge’s Choice – presented to the best rib vendors. One of the biggest changes to this year’s Cleveland Street Rib Fest is the evening festivities. In its inaugural year, the event ended at 5 p.m. with nothing planned for the evening. This year it is starting later and going until 8 p.m., and a band called Cadillac Ranch will be playing at the VFW Pavilion from 7-11 p.m. The rib fest was started last year when Lichty and Antwerp village administrator Sara Keeran wanted to organize a fun event for the community. Since the village couldn’t host or make money from such an event, they got the Antwerp Community Development Committee (ACDC) to support them. There will be raffles and other fundraisers going on throughout the day including the rest of the festivities and all of the money raised will go to the ACDC and be used to help pay for welcome to Antwerp signs at the village boundaries. Anyone who would like for information about the Cleveland Street Rib Fest of the visit the ACDC Facebook page or the Antwerp Village Web site.

More bad weather
Some unusual hailstones showed up in Emerald Township during May 25’s series of severe thunderstorms. These two nearly fill a palm, have stark white centers with clear outer layers and are disc-shaped rather than round. Across the county, hail was reported in sizes ranging from that of a pea to that of a golf ball. Damage to maturing wheat and young corn crops are being tabulated by insurance agencies. The destruction was widespread and “added insult to injury” following above normal rainfalls that have kept many farmers out of their fields.

Around Paulding County
Flat Rock Fest Committee looks for members
Paulding County residents are wanted who are interested in becoming Flat Rock Creek Fall Festival Committee members that will assume director/officer positions for the 2012 Festival. The 2011 Flat Rock Creek Fall Festival will be held Sept. 16-18, and current officers will be stepping down effective Dec. 31.

State still pursuing issues at former hotel
PAULDING – The former Hotel Barnes, located in downtown Paulding, has been an eyesore for several years. Efforts to have the building razed are ongoing. While it appears the project was stalled, Shane Cartmill of the Ohio State Fire Marshal’s office, said otherwise. “The matter has not been dropped and is still being actively pursued,” Cartmill said in a telephone interview last week. He also commented that there could possibly be some movement in the case within a few weeks. Cartmill would not elaborate on what that might be, but did assure the Progress that the case is moving forward. In May 2010, the State of Ohio Division of Industrial Compliance conducted inspection of the three-story brick structure, located at 110 S. Williams St. south of the square. Inspectors found “obvious structural issues” and “many other deficiencies” that could pose a threat of potential collapse. Passersby have noticed activity recently in front of the building and in the alley adjacent to it, but the work is not related to the hotel. Crews have been working on exterior repairs to the building across the street.

P aulding C ounty P rogress Cancer survivor and wife Survivor works through team up against the disease four bouts of cancer
By JIM LANGHAM Feature Writer Thanks to medical knowledge of specialists at the Cleveland Clinic, Eric Coyne is carrying out full responsibilities at his employment at Taylor Made Glass Ohio Inc. in Payne. While Coyne has enjoyed several years of employment at the local factory, energy for his output was weak a few years ago while he mobilized to take on the fight of a lifetime against cancer. “I have a long family history with cancer,” said Coyne. “I lost my grandmother to cancer. In 2004, I lost my mom; then, in 2005, I was diagnosed.” One year after his mother died, Coyne was initially told that he was suffering from Ewing Sarcoma and that his cancer was terminal. The local man was given several options and decided to check into the Cleveland Clinic in an effort to change his diagnosis. There, he had a kidney and several lymph nodes removed. He was also set up with a treatment of 17 rounds of chemotherapy. One of the principle contributors to Coyne’s recovery effort was his wife, Brandy, who did a considerable amount of research on-line. When the decision was made to go to Cleveland, they were assisted with referral help from their physician. Once Coyne arrived in Cleveland, things started to move quickly. “Dr. Garcia, who saw me first, wanted me to see a urologist,” said Coyne. “I saw him later in the day. He went over my information and said, ‘We will have surgery tomorrow.’” Dr. Garcia’s plan of attack allowed Coyne to return home for six weeks following the surgery. He was then to return to Cleveland periodically to establish a certain treatment regimen. “This was all very intimidating for me,” said Coyne. “It was a tough time for me. “I was stunned by it all,” continued Coyne. “In Fort Wayne, I had a team of six urologists. They looked at me and said that it was inoperable. I went up to Cleveland and they said, ‘This is nothing. We do this weekly.’ It was scary for me. I didn’t have the chance to see the children at home before I went into major surgery. “Around Christmas, they started seeing a reduction in tumors in the lungs,” noted Coyne. “They knew that the By JIM LANGHAM Feature Writer Paulding resident Judi Adams will be representing cancer survivors with courage and gratefulness as an honorary survivor for the Relay For Life of Paulding County this year. For Adams, it seems like life has been one long journey through the illness since she discovered a lump in her breast in 1984. That episode was treated with a lumpectomy, radiation and a radiation implant. “A few years later, cancer showed up again, this time in an area where radiation treatment had been given,” noted Adams. “Then I was okay for 14 or 15 Then, in years. November of 1998, a mammogram showed some irregularities in the same breast and the same area. Since it had already been radiated, they couldn’t do more of that. So I had a mastectomy and reconstruction surgery. “It was quite an ordeal; it lasted for 12 hours,” continued Adams. “When you lose part of your body, it is something to work through. That was powerful. I was very exhausted.” During that episode, it became necessary for Adams to have her head shaved. In order to accomplish that, she went to a local barber that she had known since he was a kid. “When I told him what I wanted, he asked if the cancer had returned,” said Adams. “I told him that having him cut it all off was a lot better than having it come out in handfuls. It felt pretty good when the hair grew back. “In July of 1999 I was feeling pretty good. My hair had grown back and I thought, ‘Finally, I am thinking I am on my way back,’” observed Adams. “I went to the doctor for a checkup. He looked at my charts and I could tell that he didn’t like something. Finally, he looked at me and said, ‘It looks like you have a form of multiple myoloma in usually go every three months. It is an intravenous treatment that used to take 45 minutes; now it takes a half hour,” observed Adams. “This has been an ongoing process for over 20 years. It is so difficult to understand.” If the cancer wasn’t enough, Adams had lost her youngest child, daughter Kristy Adams, in a snowmobile accident in 1983. It was shortly after that when the cancers started showing up. “Losing her was the start of a very long downside,” Adams said. Concerning being chosen as honorary survivor, Adams said that she is very honored. “I’m really glad they are doing this (honorary survivors),” said Adams. “I don’t believe they have done this before with someone from each town in the county. I would like to thank my family for all of the support of my kids, and my husband, Don, who has Parkinson’s Disease. “Relay For Life is doing such a tremendous job getting more and more people in,” continued Adams. “It has exploded since they moved it to the fairgrounds. To me, it has more of a homey feeling, more of a personal feeling. I am most grateful for what everyone is doing to help with cancer.”

Eric Coyne has committed strong energy to the Paulding County American Cancer Society Relay for Life Walk since he encountered his own experience with the illness a few years ago. chemo was becoming effective. It was a good Christmas.” It has been five years since Coyne struggled with cancer. Since then, the past five years have been cancer-free. “I have a lot of new appreciation for my wife and my kids,” observed Coyne. “I stand back and enjoy things that I never used to. My whole focus has changed. Something like this changes you.” The chemo treatment really lowed Coyne’s blood count. Back pain was overwhelming; he found himself pushing himself to eat and make an effort to attempt to change certain matters around him. “The back pain was overwhelming,” said Coyne. “I believed that by having a positive attitude and combining other things, I was guided to do what I thought was best at the time, for myself and those around me. I had a new appreciation for things. I even started getting up early just to see the sunrises.” Coyne praised Taylor Made officials for supporting him. Even during the treatment, he opted to stay active and do all that he could to be courageous and well-planned in his plan of attack for treatment and recovery. “It was hard for me to try to keep everybody up when I was having a hard time doing that myself,” said Coyne. “That chemo had really lowered the blood count. With the bone pain that I was experiencing, I realized how important it was to have a positive attitude. “I kept saying to myself, ‘You will see all three of your kids graduate,’” observed Coyne. “I did not want to miss that. I appreciated all of the assistance from family members and from Taylor personnel, who were willing to work with me to help me in every way. Everyone has been so good to me in all of this. “I am very thankful to the American Cancer Society and all that they do,” added Coyne. “I am thankful for the Relay For Life and the way that our community gets behind all of this. It means more than I could ever say.”

the blood cells where your red blood is made.’ “I said, ‘How can that be,’” continued Adams. “I said, ‘No, you’re not going to tell me I have another cancer.’” The doctor suggested that she go to a cancer research center in Little Rock, Ark., where they especially treat that type of cancer. There Adams was told that she had “smoldering multiple myoloma” and a pattern of treatment was prescribed for her care. “I have been following that treatment since that time. I

God gave survivor Dianna Clemens ‘a mountain’
By NANCY WHITAKER Progress Staff Writer PAULDING – Dianna Clemens of Paulding has been a cancer survivor for the past 18 years. She is a living, walking miracle and she will attest to that. “God has brought me through so much,” Dianna said. “There was just a time when I had to trust Him and say, ‘God carry me. I cannot go through this battle without you.’” Dianna’s ordeal began in December 1993. Even though she had gone Christmas shopping, she had been feeling extremely tired. She pulled into her mother’s driveway and was struck with an intense pain across her stomach. She cried, “Oh, my stomach. I can’t move.” The Oakwood EMS was called and Dianna was transported to Paulding County Hospital. Her family physician, Dr. Larry Fishbaugh, was on vacation so she was treated by Dr. James Gray. They began running blood tests on her and discovered that her white blood cell count was extremely high. On the third day of testing, Dr. Gray told her, “We think we have found your problem and we believe you have leukemia.” She then saw an oncologist in Van Wert, who ran some more tests. On Dec. 23, 1993, right before Christmas, Dianna received a call from the oncologist, who told her, “You do have CML leukemia and we advise you to make an appointment with your family doctor as soon as Christmas is over.” Dianna said, “I just went numb all over. I did not tell my two sons, George and Luke. I wanted them to have a nice Christmas.” After the holidays, Dianna went to a Fort Wayne hospital where she underwent a CML leukemia test. They verified the worst possible news and said, “We are going to send you to the very best place. It is The James Cancer Treatment Hospital at the Ohio State University Campus.” Dianna went to the treatment center in Columbus. There, she was told her hope for survival was to be a bone marrow transplant. It was not going to be an easy task because, she was told, “You have to go in this room for 30 days. You may never come out alive, or we may be able to help you and you could have a lifetime.” Dianna did not sign the papers for the transplant until November 1994. In the interim, she took medicine and tried to just carry on. She finally agreed to the transplant, and through testing her brother, Tim Stahl, proved to be the perfect match. “After the marrow tests, bone marrow tests. “They kill every thing in your body. I mean, they give you medicine to do that. Twenty days before the transplant I took 200 chemo pills a day,” she recalls. “I could not touch anything or anybody. My food was sent up to me in a little thing in the wall. “It was during that tough time that I kept singing, ‘You Gave Me a Mountain.’” Prior to the bone marrow transplant, they tied Dianna’s hands down, for if she should touch anything and contact any type of germ, it would kill her. When healthcare workers harvested bone marrow from Tim, they went into both of his hips 200 times each to extract the marrow. The bone marrow transplant took nine hours. She said, “I didn’t want to be sedated until I saw what that bone marrow looked like. I got to see it and it looked like fish eggs. “I had all these tubes in me and when it was over, they were hoping my body would go into a disease called grafthost or a rejection mode,” Dianna noted. It was 30 days before Dianna was taken out of the small transplant room. Remembering the day they pushed her through the door, she said, “I panicked. I said, ‘Put me back in that room. I will die out here.’” Dianna and her husband rented a small apartment on the Ohio State University campus. She had to go back and forth for treatments and was monitored constantly. Her stay in Columbus lasted approximately three months. When she finally got to come home, it was not long before the graft-host disease made her very sick. She was told to come back to the hospital. “We went back and stayed in an apartment again. They gave me IVs every day. I also got breathing treatments and it took nine weeks to get through that.” Dianna continued, “I could not have made it through without God, my husband, George, who stuck with me through those bad times, and my two sons, George and Luke. I also received so much support from Roger Gasser, who had gone through the transplant. He helped me more than he will ever know. “I also was blessed to have the greatest doctors, and I believe God handpicked them for me,” Dianna said. “My bone marrow specialist Dr. Copeland, Dr. Fishbaugh – my family doctor of 39 years – and Dr. Gray, who is my family doctor now. I have such love, respect and a speSee CLEMENS, page 8A

The Amish Cook
By: Lovina Eicher
Our laundry is drying really well on the lines outside. The sun is shining, but it looks cloudy towards the west. With the sun and the wind, daughter Elizabeth is bringing in some of the dry clothes already. We are hoping everything will be dry before the rain. I am later at getting this column written, but I couldn’t relax and sit down until the laundry was done. We had a thunderstorm last night. Our neighbor lady said someone had spotted a tornado not too far from here. It missed us, but sure makes us thinks of the ones not so lucky. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people who have been affected. Meanwhile, this week we want to start washing walls and ceilings, cleaning out our cabinets and drawers, and so forth. I would like to get a head start on cleaning for church services that will be held here at our home in four weeks. Our thoughts linger to a year ago when we received the shocking news of the death of Emma and Jacob’s sweet little daughter Marilyn (who was my niece). It just seemed that it couldn’t have been true that she could be gone after her eight short months here on earth. She is still so dearly missed but God has a reason for this, like he does for everything. And May 20 marked 11 years since my dad passed away. The years go on by, but our memories of him stay with us forever. Emma, Jacob, and family came here on Friday evening in honor of my 40th birthday, which was May 22. My husband, Joe, grilled chicken and made hot wings out on the grill. Along with that we had mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, cheese, ice cream and a homemade rhubarb torte (see last week’s column for the recipe). Saturday evening, my friend Ruth brought pizza and ice cream cake for my birthday – what a treat. Sunday we attended church at our neighbors. It was a large attendance with families visiting from other church districts. While we were eating lunch, I was given a piece of cake with a candle on it. Everyone began to sing “Happy Birthday” to me. Another lady there, Marie, also had a birthday and they sang to her as well. I am glad I wasn’t having my 63rd birthday like she was; 40 seems old enough for me. Sunday evening, I was surprised again when pizza was delivered for supper. Thanks goes to my editor Kevin for that. I told my husband Joe that it took three birthday suppers for my 40th birthday! Everything was greatly appreciated. It means a lot to not have to cook a meal when you are used to preparing three meals a day. We are enjoying lettuce and radishes out of the garden. It has still been very wet and I don’t have tomatoes, peppers or cabbage out yet. Joe doesn’t have work next week so he will be home to help. He hopes to get caught up with the outside work before church services are held here. The hay is also growing with all the rain we have had. Another thing Joe wants to crowd in is to go fishing. Bass season opens on Saturday and he would like to give it a try. It is now after lunch and we have moved all clothes that aren’t dry yet onto the porch line where they will be protected from the rain. We have been having small thunderstorms every once in awhile this afternoon. A reader from Hamilton, Ind., sent me this cherryrhubarb coffeecake recipe that I’d like to try. I will share it with you all. The recipe has three separate parts: the filling, the cake and the topping. CHERRY RHUBARB COFFEECAKE Filling: 4 cups rhubarb, chopped 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 cup sugar 1/3 cup cornstarch 1 20-ounce can of cherry pie filling Cake: 3 cups all purpose flour 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup butter or margarine 1 cup buttermilk 2 eggs, slightly beaten 1 teaspoon vanilla Crumb topping: 1-1/2 cups sugar 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup butter or margarine Preheat oven to 350°. In a saucepan, cook rhubarb and lemon juice over mediumlow heat for five minutes, stirring often to prevent burning. In a separate small bowl, combine sugar and cornstarch and then add to rhubarb mixture. Cook and stir five minutes more until thick and bubbly. Remove rhubarb mixture from heat, stir in pie filling and set aside to cool. For the cake, in a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. In a separate mixing bowl, beat buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Add to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened. Spread a little more than half of the batter into greased 9x13-inch baking pan. Spread cooled filling over batter. Drop remaining batter by teaspoon onto filling. For topping, combine sugar and flour. Cut in butter until mixture forms coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over batter. Bake at 350° for 40 to 45 minutes.

Show flair at RFL Chair Affair
Team Entou“Rog” presents the 2nd Annual Relay For Life “Chair Affair.” For the Chair Affair, chairs of any type (lawn chairs, desk chairs, fold up metal chairs, etc.) are uniquely designed and then auctioned off to the highest bidder in support of the Paulding County Relay For Life. Chairs may be painted and decorated for indoor or outdoor use. Chairs may feature any theme that suits the artist. Maybe it’s a sports team, or a specific hobby. Some artists are inspired by the memory of someone special, or in honoring someone special. Organizers encourage artists to be creative and have fun with it. To register, simply fill out the form below and submit it along with the entry fee. Entries will be taken up until the day of Relay. (Preregistration preferred as it is beneficial to allow for accommodations.) The Chair Affair will begin at 6 p.m. Friday, June 3. The chairs will be showcased in the Youth Building at the Paulding County Fairgrounds. The chairs will remain on display for the duration of the Relay, through Saturday morning, as silent auction bidding will be done. The auction results will be announced by 11 a.m. Saturday, June 4. The Chair Affair is a fun and creative way to show off your inner artist. Relay teams can get together and show their true team spirit. Or, a family can come together and honor that special person who deserves a unique “thank you” or “you’re special.” Any Relay team that enters a chair will receive half of the winning bid toward their team’s fund-raising total. All money raised goes to the American Cancer Society, so get involved – it’s a great cause to support!

WBESC contacts legislators about proposed state budget cuts
PAULDING – The Western Buckeye ESC Governing Board held its regular monthly meeting May 11, 2011 in the Paulding ESC office. Board President Jerry Zielke welcomed board members and school personnel to the meeting. Superintendent Brian Gerber informed the board that the 21st Century Community Learning Grant has been submitted. Five different grants have been submitted for Wayne Trace Local, Lincolnview Local, Antwerp Local, Paulding Exempted Village and Van Wert City. A decision on grant acceptance is targeted by July 1. Gerber commended Western Buckeye ESC employees Matt Krites and Linda Krauskopf for their time and effort they put into writing this grant. “Matt and Linda worked tirelessly on this grant. They worked with school personnel in both counties for the betterment of our students.” Gerber also announced that the Teaching American History Grant has been submitted and also commended Chris Feichter for writing the TAH grant. Gerber expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the Beta Delta Chapter of Psi Iota Xi Sorority for their generous $250 donation for educational supplies for the general operation of the Thomas Edison Preschool. He reported that letters were written and mailed to U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, U.S. Senator Rob Portman, Ohio Senator Cliff Hite, and U.S. Representative Bob Latta regarding the proposed state budget. Governor Kasich’s proposed budget for FY-12 and FY-13 calls for understandable reductions in state funding for all governmental entities. Unfortunately, not all of the “cuts” are equal in their actuality or in their effect upon the local economy. Gerber pointed out that educational service centers in Ohio have not received an increase in state funding since 1998. Since that time, ESC funding has been reduced twice. The Governor’s budget calls for a 10 percent cut for FY-12 and another cut of 15 percent for FY-13. This will reduce ESC State funding a full 30 percent since 1998. In the budget proposal, ESC’s are highlighted to lead the school initiative in shared service investigations and implementations. This role is exciting and underscores the true flexibility and entrepreneurship of ESC’s, but it becomes extremely difficult to complete when ESC staffs and facilities are compromised due to the excessive loss of funding. Treasurer Gary Ginter reviewed the current financial reports, investments and the monthly expenditures with the board.

Luminaries are small bonfires– traditional symbols that originated in the Southwest region of the U.S. since the 16th century, luminaries have burned alongside the road or in church yards as part of religious festivals and celebrations. Each luminaria represents not only a treasured relationship, but also a contribution to the American Cancer Society’s mission. Luminaria gifts support research, prevention, early detection, and improved quality of life for cancer patients. Whether or not they are present at Relay For Life, luminaria donors light the way for hope, progress & answers. The Luminaria Ceremony will be held at the Relay For Life on June 3, 2011 at the Paulding County Fairgrounds.

Hope shines its brightest during the Luminaria Ceremony at the Relay For Life. Held after dark, friends gather around the candlelit track to remember, honor and celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer.

Engagement
CACI CRAIG and HARVEY HYMAN PAULDING – Bob and Gloria Craig announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Caci Craig, to Harvey Hyman, son of Dave and Jackie Hyman. Caci, a 2007 alumna of Paulding High School, is a recent graduate of Defiance College with degrees in graphic design and communications. She currently owns her own business, Caci Craig Photography. Harvey is a 2003 alumnus of Paulding High School, a 2007 graduate of Hillsdale College and a 2009 graduate of University of Toledo Law School. He currently practices law with his father at Hyman and Hyman Ltd. in Paulding. The couple will exchange wedding vows on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at the Paulding Church of the Nazarene.

In today’s world, we are given plenty of warning about the dangers of eating meat fat, a habit that builds up cholesterol in veins and causes all sorts of troubles. Years ago, about 60 of them, in Ethel’s family, no one had as yet heard of the dangers of animal fats. Ethel’s mother thought her kids needed the rich stuff and some of them hated it. Ethel’s brothers hated the greasy stuff found on ham. While cleaning house one spring, the girls found a surprising cache on the ledges of the oak table where the family met to eat. Tucked out of Mama’s sight were innumerable pieces of ham fat. ••• Everyone has heard by this time that our section of the country was once covered by glaciers. We wonder why the ice would come down so far, as far as St. Louis, Mo. While you’re wondering about tornadoes and earthquakes, you might as well ponder on the glaciers and why they form. According to the experts, it took only about a century for those glaciers to develop.

••• We have reached that time of year known as vacation time. Memorial Day is past and now it is on to July 4th and Big Stuff as people try to hit some of the states that haven’t been reached with picture taking for the Paulding Progress. This is also mosquito and chigger time, not to mention fireworks, lost luggage, loused-up reservations and soaking wet golf courses. And another thing – if vacations are supposed to be such fun, why is it so hard to refold roads maps? Also being told about town – Paulding County farmers are out chasing Flat Rock carp around their as-yet-notplanted corn and bean fields. ••• “A lot of this country’s troubles,” says Maude Mopp, harried housewife, “might have become worse when women stopped going to nearby streams to wash their clothes. They pounded them on rocks and stones to get the stains out. “Washing dirty linen in public may have come to

mean something highly undesirable, but think about it a moment. “The pounding of the husband’s clothing on the rocks would work out untold amounts of frustration concerning that fellow. Sharing her feeling with the pounder next to her on the river bank would have therapeutic value, too. “This same fact would hold true with children’s clothing. It is possible the day of the rock-scrub-riverside laundry is not truly dead. There is the modern laundromat to consider. There is no pounding going on there, of course. Perhaps it is serving the purpose of that long-ago necessity of having someone to talk to and better understand their problems as the modern machines go through their processes. “One could say that modern laundromats serve as cycle-analyst,” sighs Maude. ••• Are you eating ham fat, chasing carp from the fields around Flat Rock, or doing the laundry in strange places? Tell us, we’ll tell everybody.

Engagement
JULIANNE LE and JOSH SHANER WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. — The parents of Julianne Le and Josh Shaner are pleased to announce their engagement and approaching marriage. The bride-elect is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Le Minh Tran of Superior, Colo. She is a graduate of the University of Colorado, Bolder and owns her own business.

Extension Web site offers help for delayed planting decisions
OSU Extension educator As of Sunday, May 22, the Ohio Crop Weather Highlights reported corn for Ohio was 11 percent planted, which was 76 percent behind last year and 69 percent behind the five-year average. Corn emerged was 2 percent, compared to 72 percent last year and 58 percent for the five-year average. As for soybeans, 4 percent of the crop was planted, which was 44 percent behind last year and 50 percent behind the five-year average. One percent of soybeans were emerged, compared to 30 percent last year and 26 percent for the five-year average. With continued wet soil conditions throughout Ohio, farmers are evaluating planting decisions on whether to plant corn, switch to soybeans, or opt for preventative planting crop insurance payments. One of the biggest agronomic concerns with severely delayed planting is the risk of the crop not reaching physiological maturity before

a killing fall freeze and the yield losses that could result. An economic concern with delayed planting is the risk of high grain moistures at harvest and the resulting costs incurred by drying the grain or price discounts by buyers. Other major agricultural concerns associated with delayed planting that can impact a producer’s decision include relative prices of corn and soybeans, market basis differences due to a later harvested crop, potential savings of crop inputs due to a later planting date, potentially higher costs of grain drying, and crop insurance coverage level. To help in the decision

By Jim Lopshire making process, The Ohio State University Extension Agronomic Crops Team has constructed a Web site titled Decision Resources and Tools for 2011 Late Planting. The Web site is located at http://agcrops.osu.edu/links/2 011-late-plantingresources/decision-resourcesand-tools-for-2011-late-plantin g and has a variety of information based on questions Extension has received from farmers across the state. The Web site is updated with current agronomic production and crop insurance information farmers can use to make an informed decision that is best for their farming operation. Farmers are faced with one of the most complicated agricultural decisions in recent years. There are several factors associated in the decision to plant corn, switch to soybeans, or opt for preventative planting crop insurance payments due to delayed planting. The Web site will provide information to help farmers make an informed decision.

A Penny For Your Thoughts....
By: Nancy Whitaker
PEANUT! PEANUT BUTTER! One of my earliest memories of food is that jar of delight known as peanut butter. When growing up, toast, bread or crackers were not served or eaten without peanut butter. I remember that there used to be a corner drugstore that not only had fountain cokes, but they had a new sandwich called “grilled peanut butter and lettuce.” My mama took me in there and we split a grilled peanut butter sandwich. I thought at that time, “There is just nothing better than this.” I know peanut butter is a popular kid’s food and favorite sandwiches for kids are peanut butter and jelly. Now, we also served peanut butter on toast and on top of that we spread marshmallow cream. That is still one of my favorites today even though people think it is a strange combination. Now, I really never thought a lot about peanut butter until I recently heard the old song made in 1961 called, “Peanut Butter.” A lot of people say, “Oh, there was no such song,” but there is. “Peanut, peanut butter. I like peanut butter, you like peanut butter, too.” Of course when I think of peanut butter, I think of it being spread on a slice of bread or toast. However, so many recipes call for peanut butter. There are peanut butter cookies, peanut butter pie, peanut butter fudge and peanut butter cake. I recently began making peanut butter and jelly stuffed French toast, which is delicious. All the cook has to do is make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and then dip in egg and fry as you would French toast. If you have not tried this, it is well worth it.

Graduates with pharmacy degree

By Jim Daly and Dr. Juli Slattery
QUESTION: Our 22-yearold son is graduating from college this month. He doesn’t have a job lined up and has no idea what he’s going to do. My husband and I don’t know what our role is in this new stage of parenting. Do we let him live at home? JULI: Your question is a common one. Gone are the days when a college graduate was ready and willing to dive into all of the responsibilities of financial and personal independence. Due to the tough economy, among other factors, most 22-year-olds find themselves in a delayed stage of adolescence. They want the freedom of adulthood, but feel paralyzed by the complexity and pressures that accompany independence. This puts parents, like you, in the awkward position of actively parenting an adult child. Your ultimate goal is to help your son launch into the full independence of adulthood. If you choose to let him live at home after graduation, don’t allow that time to be wasted. Set boundaries and requirements up front that will help him grow toward maturity and responsibility. It is reasonable to expect that he hold down a full-time job and/or pursue additional schooling or training. It may also be wise to set a departure date so that you do not enable him to avoid that next step of independence. Some parents charge their adult children rent for living at home. They put some of the money paid into a savings account that will be seed money for a deposit or downpayment on a future living arrangement. Even more than a roof over his head, your son needs your wisdom and encouragement as he looks toward the future. Help him think long-term about his goals for vocation, family and financial independence. As long as you see him making good decisions, actively moving toward these goals, your help is a good thing. QUESTION: I was laid off more than a year ago, and I still feel stunned. I don’t even know how to look for a job after being steadily employed for six years. How do I get out of this rut? JIM: Being let go from a job is one of the toughest things a person can face. But consider this: Unemployment also represents a unique opportunity. When you’re gainfully employed, all of your time and energy goes into just keeping up. But when you lose your job, suddenly there’s time and energy to spare. Most people don’t know what to do with it. They become paralyzed with fear, worry and anger. That’s a natural reaction, but if it’s all they experience while they’re unemployed, something is missing. After a job loss, you’re motivated to see clearly and honestly – perhaps for the first time in years. Your assignment isn’t merely to search for financial security in a new job. It’s to rediscover who you are. Use this time to ask yourself some serious questions. “What gifts and talents do I possess that I didn’t have a chance to use in my former job? Are there educational opportunities I should explore? What am I learning about myself through this job loss that I didn’t know – or didn’t want to know – before? What do I really want to do with my life?” Once you’re employed again, this window will close. Life will once again be overwhelmed with work responsibilities and day-to-day cares. You won’t have “down time” like this again. As hard as it is to lose your job, it’s harder to find genuine opportunities to take stock of who you are and where you want to go. Many people wonder how they get stuck in ruts along the way. Perhaps your job loss is God’s way of helping you find a better path.

She likes to dance, have fun and crack jokes, loves people and is an inspiration to all who know her. A cancer survivor for nearly two decades, the intervening years have brought her many joys and new experiences, plus she has seen the addition of more grandchildren and a greatgrandchild to her family. Her key to survival has been her faith in God, the support of her family and a determination to live.

‘Winning the Battle for a Generation’ Pain management physician offers
By Rick Jones exec. director, Defiance Area Youth for Christ The relevance of church attendance may have lost much of its allure in America but not in Ethiopia. While Paul Knight, a pastor from Grand Forks, N.D., was visiting Fiche, Ethiopia, he had the chance to meet the little girl his family had been sponsoring through Compassion International. He wanted to bring gifts to the girl and her mother, a single mom who lived and worked in a one-room home that also basically functioned as the local bar. During Paul’s visit, the place slowly started filling with rowdy men from the community. Suddenly, Paul’s guide and translator took him by the arm and said, “We have to go now.” Paul looked back at his sponsor child, a 10year-old girl, and asked for more time. The crowd was getting louder, and his guide firmly said, “It’s not safe for you. You must leave now.” Paul started to move, but then he pointed to his sponsor child and said, “But what about my little girl?” “Well, this is her home,” the guide said. Reluctantly moving to the street, Paul asked, “But will she be safe?” “It’s not really safe, but this is her home,” the guide said. Paul was indignant. “What does that mean,” he asked, “that ‘it’s not really safe’?” “Most likely everything you think it means,” the guide said. Paul fought back tears. “What can she do?” Gently grabbing his arm, the guide said, “We teach the girls to do this: scream and run to the church. When you get to the church, you will find love and safety. The church will shelter you. So when they feel threatened or vulnerable, they scream and run to the church.” Regarding the importance of church, especially in light of Western Culture’s affinity to stop church going, the writer to Hebrews writes ... Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV), “24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. 25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” For more information about the work of Youth for Christ, you may contact Youth for Christ at 419-782-0656, P.O.

new procedure for treating compression fractures of the spine
DEFIANCE – Kellee R. Gooden, M.D., pain management physician at Defiance Clinic and Mercy Hospital of Defiance, has expanded her services to include a minimally invasive surgical procedure for treating compression fractures of the spine. Called kyphoplasty, the procedure is used to reduce pain and restore the height of the collapsed vertebra. Frequently, it can be performed as an outpatient service in the Fauster Surgery Center at Mercy. A small balloon is inserted through a tiny slit in the back and carefully inflated to return the vertebra to the correct position. Then the balloon is withdrawn and quick-drying bone cement is inserted into the cavity that was formed by the balloon. The cement stabilizes the

DR. KELLEE GOODEN fracture and holds the bone in place. Compression fractures are most often caused by osteoporosis, cancer that has spread to the spine, or trauma such as a fall or auto accident. Kyphoplasty is most effective when compression fractures are diagnosed early, Dr. Gooden noted.

Handprints of caring left behind
In the midst of one of the most destructive scenes to ever occur on American soil stands a small wall with colorful reminders of the love of children from around the world. On one side of the wall are posters filled with handprints from children who wished to send their touching concern to all of those affected by the tragedy that occurred at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995. Other than the terrorist tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001, the Oklahoma City blast was the most deadly to occur on American soil with the bomb snuffing out the lives of 168 people, including 19 children under the age of six. Three hundred and twenty-four buildings within a 16-block radius were damaged. There were 86 cars destroyed and glass was shattered in 258 nearby buildings. On one side of the children’s memorial are colored pictures and words of condolence depicting the heartfelt attempts of children to express their concern to all of those affected by the tragedy. On the other side of the wall are traced hands and names of youngsters expressing their desire to place the imprints of their caring hands on the hearts of the hurting. The memorial is designed to offer comfort at every turn. Large monuments inscribed with the time one minute before and one minute after the destruction of the building are reflected in a large quiet pool, which stretches the length of the former government building. On a quiet hillside, monuments to each person whose life was taken stand in repose casting their shadows in the bright Oklahoma sun. Small monuments represent the lives of children who were snuffed out at such a tender age. Perhaps the ultimate reach is a large statue of Jesus at one end of the memorial, hands over his eyes as he weeps, with the words carved in the base of the monument, “Jesus wept.” But it was the hands of the caring children that gripped my heart on a recent visit to the site during a short vacation. I thought of those hands and how they represented the many caring hands reaching out on a daily and hourly basis to those with need, hands of caretakers in nursing homes and by the sides of mentally

and physically handicapped. I thought of the hands of those in the military working steadily for the protection of our country. I thought of the hands of those working behind the scenes to improve the lives of others, those addressing the needs of mentally and physically handicapped, but hands of individuals whose names we will probably never know. A couple of years ago, a close friend and I stood having a reflective chat one evening as a most impressive sunset unfolded in front of our eyes ... and suddenly, the appearance of a hand reaching out in compassion appeared over the entire scene, as though it were the hand of God still reaching to a world of need. I thought of the hand of God as I looked at the hands of the

A $100 SMILE – Dr. Carl Jeffery and Dr. Jessica Jeffery-Mohr announced that Elliot Boroff, a kindergartner at Grover Hill Elementary, was the first place winner of the coloring contest to celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month. Elliot received a $100 Wal-mart gift certificate for his great picture. From left are teacher Kim Walls, Elliot Boroff, Dr. Jessica Jeffery-Mohr and Dr. Carl Jeffery. Thirteen schools participated this year. The contest included preschoolers to first graders from Lincolnview, Grover Hill Elementary, Convoy Preschool, First United Methodist Preschool, Delphos Jefferson, Parkway, Washington Elementary of Van Wert, Jefferson Elementary of Van Wert, Franklin Elementary of Van Wert, Vantage Preschool, Wee Care Learning Center, Calvary Preschool, and Thomas Edison. There were 833 who participated in the coloring contest and 1,337 dental kits were given to the kids during the program.

children and their attempt to address the overwhelming grief in the midst of the memorial of the tragedy of that day. Many notes are pasted on a fence surrounding the memorial, notes of those wishing to update their fallen loved ones of life in the present 15 years later. And in it all, I couldn’t help but wonder where I have left hand imprints over the years that have sought to address the needs and express compassion to others. Like the hand of God reaching to a hurting world, the hands of Jesus weeping over those who feels so deeply for, and children worldwide with childlike love in their hearts, I prayed that my hands would fall on hurting hearts and in places of need, leaving an imprint that will remain as long as the touch is needed.

Paulding County Pedigree By: Caroline Zimmerman
PAULDING COUNTY IN THE CIVIL WAR Part 2 of 2 The fourth company organized in Paulding County for the three years service was Co. “I” of the 100th Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry. The company was recruited by Emanuel Kaufman, who was elected captain, with Dennison S. Hughes, 1st Lieut. and Joseph S. Champion, 2nd Lieut. This company, also, did noble service until their country needed their services no longer. In the spring of 1863, the 42nd Battalion Ohio National Guards, consisting of Co. “A”, “B” and “C”, was organized in Paulding County and commanded by Major Andrew P. Meng. In April 1864, the battalion was called into active service, and rendezvoused at Antwerp, drilled for a day or two, and was sent home with order to report again for duty on the 10th of that month. The 10th came, the battalion reported as ordered, and was soon on its way to serve the general government for the period of 100 days. At Toledo, it was found that the battalion did not have three maximum companies, and Co. “C” was consolidated with companies “A” and “B”. With these two companies, the battalion proceeded to Columbus and were ordered to Camp Chase, four miles west of that city. Here it was consolidated with the 32nd Battalion from Logan County and one company from Montgomery County, Ohio, and became Companies “A” and “H” of the l32nd Regiment Ohio National Guards and mustered into the United States service. The officers of the Company “A” were Captain John Shirley, 1st Lieut. F.S. Cable and 2nd Lt. Peter Snook. Officers of Company “H” were Captain B.F.H. Hankins, 1st Lieut. E.H. Day and 2nd Lieut. William Good. The regiment was sent to the Army of the Potomac and attached to the 2nd Brigade, 2nd Division, of the 18th Army Corps. The regiment did honorable service in the trenches around Petersburg, until its expiration of term; the regiment was mustered out of service Sept. 10, 1864. Besides these companies that were organized in Paulding County, many enlisted in the companies of other counties, so that at one time during the war scarcely a “corporal’s guard” was left in the county. “Then let the heart of every ex-soldier who may read this history swell with emotions of pride (or the descendant, thereof), when he or she remembers that in the Great Rebellion he represented this small county that, according to its population, sent more soldiers than another in the State of Ohio. And remembering this, may the tender teardrop fall to the memory of their gallant comrades, who rallying around the flag of liberty, laid down their noble lives on the altar of their country.” – Anon. Note: Some of this info was taken from county officer war records History of Paulding Co. by Prof. Everett A. Budd, 1882.

Tickets are now available for the 2011 Miss Paulding County Scholarship Pageant. The pageant will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, June 10 in the Paulding School Auditeria with doors opening at 6:30. Tickets can be purchased at the Paulding Chamber of Commerce, Paulding County Progress office or from the contestants. The cost is $5.

Paulding Chamber director to retire
PAULDING — Conrad “Clip” Clippinger, director of the Paulding Chamber of Commerce, today announced he will be retiring on July 15. He has served as director for nearly six years. The chamber’s board has formed a search committee to find a successor to fill this top leadership position. Clippinger joined the Paulding Chamber in August 2005. A resident of Defiance, Clippinger is a 1969 graduate of Defiance College and formerly taught school before entering the automobile business. He also had been a substitute teacher in the area and tutored students. He and his wife, Linda, have a son, Scott, who is an Ohio State Law School graduate currently serving in the Marine Corps in Washington, D.C., and twin grandsons. “It has been my honor and pleasure to work with the members of the Paulding Chamber of Commerce for the past six years,” Clippinger said. “I have enjoyed every day and appreciate the support of the board, our great members and volunteers, elected officials and the community. The membership has proven what an outstanding organization the chamber is.” “On behalf of the board of directors, the chamber membership and the people of Paulding, we would like to thank Clip for his service and leadership to the chamber and our community,” said board chairman Melinda Krick. “We want to wish Clip well in his retirement. In July, we will hold a special Business After Hours event to thank and honor Clip for his service to the community.” One of Clippinger’s last major duties will be overseeing the chamber’s annual John Paulding Days festival, June 9-11. The chamber board will begin seeking candidates for this fulltime position. Deadline for applications is June 10. More information, including a job description, can be found on the chamber’s Facebook page at facebook.com/paulding chamber.
