I admit it. If you don’t
know me, my sense of
humor may be a little
puzzling at first.
It’s always been that
way with me.
When I fall down I’m
always the first to laugh.
With my legs stuck out
in front of me I find the
pose rather humorous.
The same is true if I
mispronounce or misun-
derstand a word.
My husband still laughs
that for years I thought
the song said “Oh Lord,
Won’t you buy me a Mer-
cedes Benz, my friends
all drive ‘horses….” Well
it was years before I real-
ized my friends all drive
Porches.
Then in church I always
sang “Praise all preach-
ers here below” instead
of the right word “crea-
tures” for years. Now
every time I sing that
song I start laughing. Oh
well.
Last week when the
nurse came to take me to
surgery I couldn’t resist.
“They are coming to take
me away. Oh no! They
are coming to take me
away, Oh no!” I said in a
falsetto voice to my hus-
band and pastor.
The nurse looked a
bit startled, but relaxed
when my husband burst
out laughing and she real-
ized I was just kidding
and not panicking.
The doctor just shook
his head when I told him
I considered a tattoo with
an arrow so he would
do surgery on the right
place.
I guess laughter is one
way I have always used
to cope with the good
and bad things that hap-
pen to me.
If I find myself getting
stressed I will pull out
one of my many Cal-
vin and Hobbes books
and read it for awhile.
It never fails to hit my
funny bone and change
my mood.
If I need an extra boost
of comedy I watch a
series of YouTube clas-
sics of babies laughing. I
might even put in a DVD
of a comedienne. One
of my favorites is Jeff
Dunham. His skill as a
ventriloquist with several
puppets never fails in
getting a chuckle out of
me, no matter how down
I may be.
I recommend comedy
and humor to others. It is
a sure- fire way to make
a person cope with the
ups and downs of every-
day life.
Just keep
it funny

Dorothy Lugibihl and Joyce Ginther sell Oreo ice cream to Tristan Niese and Hunter Niese at the Putnam County Fair. Lugibihl’s Homemade
Ice Cream has become a fixture at the fair, one that many attendees can’t pass up.
Putnam fairgoers all scream for
Lugibihl’s Homemade Ice Cream
By BECKY LEADER
Voice Correspondent
Lugibihl’s Homemade Ice Cream
has been a staple of the Putnam
County Fair for many years. What
began as a hobby for Luke and
Dorothy Lugibihl, has turned into
a really sweet business that is
widely known in northwest Ohio.
Dorothy related that a cousin,
Till Nuenschwander, used to drive
an Amish man to the Mennonite
Relief Sale in Kidron so the man
could sell home made ice cream.
The man had a 10-gallon can of
special mix he used to make the
sweet confection. Till had asked
Dorothy and Luke to help out
one time and drive the man to the
sale, as Till had another function
to attend. The Lugibihls helped
the Amish man out several more
times. They were amazed at the
popularity of the ice cream. One
time, Dorothy recalled, even
though there was frost on the
ground, the dessert was a hit. In
1992, Till shared the recipe with
the Lugibihls, and suggested that
Luke build a trailer and start
his own business. Luke bought
a 1928 John Deere three-horse
“hit and miss” engine to churn
the ice cream. The engine sounds
just like a John Deere tractor. He
took a week to build a trailer,
and Dorothy made the curtains.
Lugibihl’s Home Made Ice Cream
began, with the slogan, “Just like
Grandma Used to Make.”
The dry mix that is used for the
ice cream is made of sugar and
several other natural ingredients.
Dorothy explained that when their
ice cream melts, the natural ingre-
dients are left, unlike store-bought,
which melts into foam. “People
have told me they can eat our ice
cream, but not the store-bought,”
she commented. “People know it’s
not a powder, because they see us
mixing it on the spot.” Dorothy’s
daughter, Joyce Ginther, added,
“We used to take all the ingredients
separately (to the location). We had
big bags of sugar and other stuff,
and it got to be too much, so we
began mixing it at home.”
Last year, the Lugibihls began
experimenting with different fla-
vors of ice cream. Dorothy’s favor-
ite is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
(This author also thought the Oreo
was yummy.) Everyone in the fam-
ily likes ice cream- even Rose the
dog. “When we make it, she’ll wait
until we put some in her dish,”
chuckled Dorothy.
Since 1993, Dorothy has kept
a diary of the different venues
where they have set up shop- 41 in
all- that includes carnivals, fairs,
celebrations, and church fund-
raisers. They have never had to
advertise, because all their busi-
ness has come from word of
mouth. People follow them to
the different locations, and have
become loyal customers. The larg-
est settings have been the Allen
and Van Wert County Fairs. Doro-
thy recalled, “We were tickled to
get in (at the Allen County Fair),
but they put us clear at the end of
the fairway. However, customers
soon found the stand, and busi-
ness boomed. Dorothy laughed,
“Little kids tell their parents, ‘I
want some putt-putt ice cream,’
because they remember the sound
the engine makes.”
Luke and Dorothy always
enjoyed meeting their customers.
“Everybody’s so nice. We meet the
nicest people,” Dorothy remarked.
She remembered that men would
talk to Luke about the John Deere
engine, and would even ask him
questions about problems they
were having with their own
engines, or tell him about engines
they wanted to sell.
Luke passed away three years
ago. Dorothy stated, “We put in
the obituary that we were going
to continue the business, because
we didn’t want people to think
that because Luke passed away,
we’d close up.” Joyce and her
husband, Joe, and Dorothy’s son,
Jay, and his wife, Janet, now run
the business. Dorothy is usually
present. Joyce said, “We tell Mom
to stay home, but she doesn’t want
to miss anything!” The Lughbihl’s
business has grown to the point
that they now have two outfits, so
the entire family is busy making
and scooping the frozen dessert.
Dorothy concluded, “I just never
dreamt (sic) it would be this big!”
Sweet!

OTTAWA — Grant Weihrauch is a
member of both Ottawa Boy Scout
Troop 224 and the Pandora-Gilboa
Grow and Show 4-H Club. When he
was searching for an Eagle Scout
project, he found one that was win-
win for both organizations.
A service project is the pinnacle of
the rank of Eagle Scout. It involves
a young man applying everything
he has learned thus far in Scout-
ing: leadership, responsibility, man-
aging projects, and applying the
Scout Oath, “to help other people.”
Weihrauch, an Ottawa-Glandorf
sophomore, has been a Boy Scout
since he was in first grade, and
a 4-H member for six years. He
got the idea for his project from
the Calf Keepers Committee, which
maintains the Dairy Barn at the
Putnam County Fairgrounds, “We
thought it was probably 10 years
since the barn had been painted,”
commented Weihrauch. “We spend
the whole fair time in this barn
with our 4-H projects, and thought
it looked run down. They (The Calf
Keepers) gave me the idea, and we
added to it.”
It took Weihrauch much advance
planning as to what materials and
labor he would need. He deter-
mined which improvements he
wanted to make. He was able to
secure donations of paint, lumber,
and screws from local merchants.
He and his family also donated
some of the supplies. The Putnam
County Commissioners and the
Putnam County Grounds Improve-
ment Foundation provided sheet
metal and hardware for the barn’s
metal doors.
Many of Weihrauch’s friends and
family volunteered for the proj-
ect, including fellow Scouts Tra-
vis Nienberg, Ryan Maas, Michael
Sunderhaus, and Luke Schaub.
The group, under Weihrauch and
his father’s, Mike’s, supervision
and leadership, began by pressure
washing the interior of the barn.
When the project was completed,
not only had the inside of the barn
been painted, but the north doors
were repaired, missing tie bars
were installed on one of the exte-
rior walls, the fence on the north
side of the barn was sealed and
stained, and the main doors were
replaced. In addition, Weihrauch
had observed the “Dairy Barn” sign
was in bad shape. “The background
was rotting away, so we put new
backing on it, painted it and com-
pletely repaired it,” he explained.
The final task was to level the dirt
areas on which the cows lie. There
were a total of 265 volunteer hours
involved in the endeavor, which
took place from August to October
of last year.
Weihrauch credited his dad as
being his biggest supporter dur-
ing the venture. Since Eagle Scout
projects require adult supervision,
that role fell on the elder Weihr-
auch’s shoulders. Mike Weihrauch
expressed pride in his son’s project,
and chuckled, “We pulled staples
from the display boards that had
been there for 25 years.”
A fellow 4-H parent, Todd
Leatherman, looked around the
barn and observed, “It (Weirauch’s
work) made the barn look cleaner
and more uniform- it all matches.”
Leatherman’s wife, Kim, added,
“We saw their (Weihrauch and
his crew) vehicles at the barn late
at night many times.” The Calf
Keepers, spurred by Weirauch’s
renovations, added new lights to
the barn.
Weirauch stood in the barn with
his dairy feeder, Oscar, and gazed
at his work. He believed his Eagle
Scout project benefited the Putnam
County Fair, the Putnam County
Fair Board, the Calf Keepers, the
4-H exhibitors who show animals at
the fair and keep their animals in the
barn, and anyone who attends the
Putnam County Fair. According to
the Boy Scout manual, “The Eagle
Scout service project becomes a
truly defining moment in your quest
for excellence.” Grant Weihrauch
certainly has achieved his defining
moment!

SAY WHAT ?!?!
OTTAWA — Six 2012 grad-
uates of Ottawa-Glandorf
High School were recently
awarded $5,000 in scholar-
ships through the Ottawa-
Glandorf Rotary Club
STRIVE program.
STRIVE stands for Stu-
dents Taking a Renewed
Interest in the Value of Edu-
cation. STRIVE is an annual
scholarship program open to
O-G seniors who are plan-
ning on furthering their edu-
cation beyond high school,
but would not likely be eli-
gible for other academic
scholarships. Seniors are
challenged over the course
of the year to improve their
GPA, reduce absenteeism
and increase active partici-
pation in the classroom envi-
ronment. They also attend a
series of five breakfast pro-
grams held throughout the
school year in the mornings
before school starts. During
the programs, seniors and
Rotarians enjoy breakfast,
fellowship and a presenta-
tion from a Rotarian or other
individual from the com-
munity who reflects on his
or her high school and col-
lege education, vocation and
career experiences.
In the spring, STRIVE par-
ticipants ask three teachers
to complete an evaluation
about their school perfor-
mance during their senior
year. A committee then
reviews the evaluations, stu-
dents’ GPA and attendance.
Six finalists were selected
from more than 30 partici-
pating seniors. The finalists
were required to complete
an essay questionnaire and
participate in a formal inter-
view process to determine
their scholarship amount.
The 2012 STRIVE Schol-
arship winners are: Marissa
Bensman, $1,500; Kristen
Duling, $1,500; Craig Rie-
man, $500; Morgan Karhoff,
$500; Vanessa Halker, $500;
and Danielle Cox, $500.
Additionally, Marissa Bens-
man was chosen to represent
O-G Rotary at the Rotary Dis-
trict 6600 STRIVE Scholar-
ship competition in Findlay
in May. Marissa earned third
place at the district event.
During the 2012 Kids Day at the Putnam
County Fair, the Putnam County Educa-
tional Service Center presented “STEM at
the Fair”. This activity allowed children
of many ages to discover STEM (science,
technology, engineering and mathemat-
ics) through the use of multiple hands-on
activities. Activities that were presented
included: creating oobleck in order to
compare the properties of solids and liq-
uids, using Omnifix cubes in order to cre-
ate shapes from their mathematical net,
using Energy Beads to test the strength
of different levels of sunscreen, using
Model Magic to engineer a new form of
transportation, and testing a homemade
bubble solution using different bubble
wands. Each activity included supplies
for the children to keep as well as a Take
Home card with further information and
experiments corresponding to the activi-
ties. Upon completion of the activities,
children were rewarded with a bracelet, a
backpack and an opportunity to decorate
their own Frisbee. Approximately two
hundred Putnam County children were
exposed to these STEM opportunities
while at the Fair.
“STEM at the Fair” was fashioned after
an activity that Bowling Green State Uni-
versity sponsors entitled “STEM at the
Park”. The goal of the program was to
immerse children of a younger age in
STEM activities in order to not only raise
awareness of what STEM is, but also
to introduce students to opportunities
they may have in their future education.
The funding for “STEM at the Fair” was
provided by Ball Corporation, the 21st
Century Community Learning Grant, Safe
Schools Healthy Students Initiative and
the Putnam County Educational Service
Center.

PANDORA — It was a
week of learning for Becca
Schlumbohm and Nick Wal-
ther, Pandora.
Becca attended Buckeye
Girls State and Nick attended
Buckeye Boys State.
“I learned a lot about the
process it takes for a bill to
become a law,” said Nick. He
was a senator while attending
Boys State at Bowling Green
State University. As a sena-
tor he was on an education
committee whose main bill
was reformatting how school
funding is done in the state.
“I learned how schools are
funded now and problems
associated with it,” Nick said.
Then my committee looked
at different ways the govern-
ment could collect money to
fund schools.”
Nick said each day in the
week started at 5:30 a.m. Fol-
lowing breakfast his commit-
tee would work on the pro-
cess to get their bill passed.
They also met a few hours
after lunch.
“In the evening we did dif-
ferent things like have a col-
lege fair and even had a water
balloon fight one night.” At the
end of the week, Nick joined
his committee in presenting
their proposed bill to the entire
Senate at Boys State.
“Our bill passed almost
unanimously,” Nick said. “We
only had one person vote
against it.” Nick said he most
enjoyed the friends he made
during Boys State.
Nick plays football, soccer
and bass guitar. He is the
member of a worship band
at his church.
Nick plans to major in pre-
med and become an orthope-
dic surgeon. He is the son of
Dean and Carol Walther.
Classmate Becca said
her day started a bit later,
but was just as busy. She
attended Girls State June 10
through June 16 at Mount
Union in Alliance.
During her week the girls
attended city caucuses at
the beginning of the week.
Becca served as a city cen-
tral committee member. She
was responsible for counting
and tallying votes taken dur-
ing the week.
“It could be a bit stressful,”
Becca admitted. “One elec-
tion resulted in only a one
vote difference.” She also
learned about government
operations as also served on
the health board and passed
proposals that were taken
before the mayor of her com-
munity to be passed as laws.
“I learned how important
it is to be on time every-
where,” Becca said. She also
made many friends during
the week and plans to stay in
touch with them.
“We also had special guests
attend throughout the week
including Gov. John Kasich,”
Becca said. Becca, who is
also a musician, was given
the honor of playing the Star
Spangled Banner on Piano
during the graduation cere-
mony that week for the Ohio
State Highway Patrol. She
has been playing piano for ten
years and admitted it was an
honor to be chosen to play.
Becca enjoys being part of
musicals at the school and
baby sitting. She plans to
major in human resources.
Becca is the daughter of
John and Sue Schlumbohm.
“I would recommend
attending this to my friends,”
Becca said. “It’s a great expe-
rience.” Nick agreed adding
that they both appreciated
being sponsored by the Pan-
dora American Legion Post
616 and Auxiliary.
“Without their sponsorship
this experience wouldn’t
have been possible,” Nick
said.

using their Bibles so children are encourage to bring a
Bible every day if they have one. Through the daily skits,
karaoke, missions, crafts, snacks, games, and music, kids
will have an awesome time while giving God the praise
that only He deserves.
The week concludes with a special closing performance

By BECKY LEADER
They were primped and pumped. Some were shy;
some were precocious. A few walked boldly to the
stage, while others needed encouragement from
their parents. Thirty-four contestants, all Putnam
County residents between the ages of two and
five years, vied for the titles of Little Miss or Little
Mister Putnam County 2012 at the county fair on
Tuesday, June 19. Dr. Jennifer Maag, the mistress of
ceremonies, asked each child a series of questions
while on stage. Each child was asked to say, “Have
fun at the fair!” The contestants paraded around the
entertainment tent before returning to the front of
the stage. The audience collectively held its breath
while the winners were named. The three judges,
Cathy Recker, Marge Dresbach, and Haylee Koes-
ter, made their decisions based on the contestants’
