a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10 at

CONVOY The link between Ohio State
University and the Blue Creek Wind Farm was
strengthened on Monday as OSU officials and
Iberdrola Renewables agreed to team up on
wind power production research projects.
A bus load of Ohio State students, officials,
and even Brutus Buckeye ventured to Lincoln
Ridge Farm northeast of Convoy for the sign-
ing of the agreement.
The energy firm and the university were al-
ready partners. Since Dec. 1, 2012, OSU has
agreed to purchase enough wind energy to
power around 25 percent of its Columbus cam-
pus. That wind energy is generated at the Blue
Creek Wind Farm.
We signed an agreement back in November
where we purchased some wind energy from
Blue Creek Wind Farm and Iberdrola, so now
we are taking this to the next level, announced
Caroline Whitacre, OSU vice president for re-
We applaud Iberdrola Renewables for mak-
ing our relationship more than just a business
transaction, Whitacre continued. In addition
to the wind energy purchase, Iberdrola
Renewables and Ohio State are partnering to

ANTWERP Riverside Park will be the
scene for Antwerps 14th annual Day in the
Park on Saturday, Aug. 10.
This years summer celebration will include
many of the activities from pre-
vious years as well as new
events and entertainment. The
parade will kick off at 10 a.m.
followed by the raising of the
flags at 11:15 to officially open
the days activities.
Those interested in partici-
pating in the parade are asked
to form at the football field.
Parade line up will begin at the
field at 9 a.m. and will make its
way to the park and back to the
football field to conclude the
parade route.
The main events and enter-
tainment will take place at
Riverside Park located on East
River Street. Popular events
from the past that will again re-
turn this year will include the cruise-in and
craft and food vendors.
The cruise-in attracts a large number of on-
lookers who enjoy the classic cars, trucks, and
motorcycles. In the past, as many as 35 entries
were on display at the park.
These classics and their owners are encour-
aged to be in the parade and then make there
way to the park for the show, said Sandra
Wann from the Antwerp Chamber of
According to Wann, there is no entry fee for
the car show and for the participants they can
stay at the park as long as they desire. Its pret-
ty much a come and go time.
The east side of the park will be home to the
craft vendors. There will be a wide variety of
items being offered by individual crafters as
well as direct sales people.
What would be an outdoor summer event
without food? As a convenience to all park at-
tendees, the vendors will be located in the mid-
dle of the park for easy access.
This year there will be no com-
mercial food vendors with all
food items coming from area
non-profit organizations.
Again, we will have a
wonderful variety of food of-
fered by many of our area or-
ganizations, clubs, schools,
and athletic teams, said Wann.
Music will be in order dur-
ing the afternoon hours with
the Antwerp Community Band
and the Old Crown Brass Band
from Fort Wayne making their
first appearance.
For the children, the Little
Maumee Express Train will be
full steam ahead as they offer
train rides for the youngsters.
The Fort Wayne ZooMobile will make an ap-
pearance in the park. The ZooMobile will offer
the opportunity to get up close and personal
with the animals and reptiles they bring for dis-
Also, making his way across the state line
from Fort Wayne will be Johnny, the face of the
Fort Wayne TinCaps. The mascot for the
TinCaps since 2009, Johnny will be at the park
offering his style of entertainment for kids and
adults alike.
The festivities will conclude late in the after-
noon when the VFW and Boys Scouts proper-
ly retire the old and tattered American flags in
a retirement flag burning ceremony.
Due to limited seating, everyone who attends
advance wind energy research
and education. This unprece-

cutting edge as Ohio State is a
fantastic opportunity for us

signing ceremony early on as
the bus doors opened and
Brutus Buckeye rushed out
followed by the OSU State

team got a first look at the
wind farm, a few marveling at
the site of several turbines
overlooking Lincoln Ridge on
a sunny Monday morning.
The bus trip was making its
first stop, moving on to visit
Cooper Farms in Van Wert
The immediate effect of the
new research agreement is the
creation of a committee with
representatives from both
Ohio State and Iberdrola
Renewables. The committee
will work to evaluate, approve
and facilitate research proj-
ects, and to determine the re-
sponsibilities of all parties in-
volved in a project, including
any additional partners that
might also take part. In this
way both Iberdrola and Ohio
State can work together on re-
ports, publications, inventions
and patents which could come
from these research projects
and have their rights protect-

The Amish Cook
By: Lovina Eicher
this year. Putting up hay is a
very hot job in this weather.
Susan, 17, Verena, 15, and
Benjamin are detasseling
corn, which is also a very hot
job. The factories that Joe and
Elizabeth, 19, work in do not
have air conditioning, so they
get pretty warm on days like
The young children have
been staying cool by filling
tubs of water and then having
a water battle. Those are al-
ways fun and sometimes
everyone joins in.
I canned Seranno peppers
this week. Today I need to
can pickles. Joe picked two
five gallon size buckets of cu-
cumbers. We are having
tomatoes and lots of zucchini
to add to our menus. I also
canned black raspberry
freezer jam with the berries
Timothy has on his property.
Benjamin had a nice 14th
birthday on Sunday. I made a
chocolate cake and decorated
it for him. We didnt do any-
thing special for our 20th an-
niversary on the 15th. Where
have these years gone?
It is only 8 a.m. and the sun
feels warm already. Joseph
and I watered the gardens
with the sprinkler. The hose
wouldnt reach the one cor-
ner, so we watered that with
buckets. Its time consuming,
but it is dry and needs rain.
It sure feels good to finally
sit down and prop up my feet
in front of a fan after a
shower. It has been hot and
humid this week. We have
been trying to shade the win-
dows from the sun. We have
a wraparound porch towards
the east and south which pro-
vides some shade.
Its when the sun shines
from the west, that we feel
the heat. In the house we pull
the shades to block out the
sun until it goes down.
We use battery-powered
fans, but it seems on hot days
like this they just blow the
warm air around.
Growing up at home we
didnt have any fans. In Dads
later years he finally bought a
small battery-powered square
fan to help him get through
hay fever season.
My husband, Joe, and sons
Benjamin, 14, and Joseph,
10, with the help of the neigh-
bors, put 400 bales of hay in
our barn this week that we
had bought from the neigh-
bors. Plans are to get our hay
cut this week yet. Joe doesnt
think we will have enough as
we put one field into beans
The Good Lord will provide.
We have so much to be thank-
ful for. Do we appreciate the
many blessings we have? Let
us thank God daily for our
Laundry is also on our list
to do today, so Ill sign off
wishing all of you readers
Gods many blessings.
Try this recipe with your
fresh garden goodies.
1 cup chopped zucchini
1 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/3 cup grated cheese
1 cup cut up cooked chicken
1 cup milk
1/2 cup Bisquick
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Heat oven to 400. Lightly
grease an 8x8 square baking
dish or 9 pie plate. Sprinkle
zucchini evenly in baking
pan. Beat remaining ingredi-
ents for 1 minute or until
smooth. Pour evenly in dish.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or
until knife inserted comes out
clean. Let stand 5 minutes be-
fore cutting.

The Janice Shaffer Family
You were taken from us so
suddenly. We still wonder why.
Our hearts ache as each day
passes by. How long will this
emptiness inside us remain? We
miss you so much, long to see you
again. You left and dwell with the
Lord up above, but the memories
of you are filled with such love.
Weve said our goodbyes and in
faith we stand, for one day in
heaven, well walk hand in hand.
You are always in our hearts. In
time we will see each other again.

U.S. Postal Service said.
Several years ago, the Postal
Service closed its Lima pro-
cessing center, sending mail
from the region to Toledo.
In 2012, the agency an-
nounced it was consolidating
further and planned to move
Lima area mail from Toledo to
On July 1, Senators Sherrod
Brown and Rob Portman and
Congressmen Bob Latta and
Marcy Kaptur sent a letter to
the Postmaster General, asking
for a delay in closing the
Toledo Processing and Distri-

that it could cause delays in
mail delivery and not produce
projected cost savings.

The dreaded doctor visit
I hate going to the doctor. I know, hate is a strong word. My
folks taught me at a very young age how wrong it is to hate
people. So, let me again clarify what I am saying. Im not say-
ing I hate doctors, I am simply saying, I hate going to the doc-
tor. Most men my age probably hate going to the doctor.
So, about three weeks ago I had to put my hate to the side
and make the dreaded visit to my new friend. This trip was
going to be a little different. Moving to a new area, I had to find
a new physician willing to
take new patients. I looked
online and quickly found a
handful of doctors in my area
taking new patients. By the
time I eliminated those whose
name I could not pronounce
and those who just didnt look
like a doctor I would trust, I
finally settled on one.
Making the call was easy. The receptionist I spoke with was
friendly, to the point, and had an opening later that week.
Good. Lets get it over with and the sooner the better.
I explained to her that I was new to the area and that I was in
good health outside of being over weight causing me to have
high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I went on to explain
how my prescriptions was about to run out and I needed the
doctor to write out new ones in order to continue my pill taking
regiment. So far so good.
Appointment day arrived and I found myself sitting in this
rather plush waiting room filling out paper work and waiting to
hear them call out my name. Soon the door opened and this
young gal with a pretty smile spoke my name with confidence
and I was impressed. I was impressed because she pronounced
my last name correctly. Something that is seldom done on the
first attempt but she said it right.
As I entered the exam area, she records my height and
weight. Not bad. I hadnt gained a pound so I still have the
same amount to lose as this time last year. I had my blood pres-
sure checked as well as a few other routine procedures for a
first time patient. Finally, I was in the exam room all alone
waiting for the doctor to come in, someone I have never seen
before in my life.
As I sat in the one uncomfortable chair waiting for the door
to quickly open, I read all the wall posters twice, I listened
carefully through the wall to the patient/doctor conversation
next door, and then I considered counting the cotton balls in the
glass container across the room on the countertop, but canceled
that idea when the door opened and in steps the doctor.
Oh, by the way, my doctor is a woman. Thats no big deal
for I have had women doctors before. Second, with a strong
accent I discovered she is originally from Russia. Again, no
big deal. I have had women doctors before who were from
other countries.
The visit went well. Uneventful, I would say. And most im-
portant I got my new prescriptions. She reminded me to get
blood work done and she would see me in a year. Hallelujah! I
was out of there in 20 minutes with my coveted prescriptions
in hand. The doctor was A+ in my book.
A few days later I was off to the local pharmacy to have one
of my scripts filled. When I picked it up later that day, the cost
was different, the pill was pink not white, and its called some-
thing different. Ooops. Something must not be right. Maybe
the doctor isnt A+ after all. I make a trip to the pharmacy and
they assured me the prescription was filled according to her
specifications. I then went to the docs office and was told that
she had changed it and wanted me to take something else and
instead of taking one pill a day, now take two of the pinks.
Okay, I understand. But what I didnt understand was no one
told me about the change. Should I chalk it up as a mistake?
Should I find a new doctor? No new doctor. After all, I hate
going to the doctor. And, after all, they know how to pro-
nounce my name.
When I think about it, hate is a strong word, so maybe I
should be thankful I dont have to go back to see my doctor
for a whole year. That is certainly something I like. I mean, I
love. That sounds better!

Paulding properties will be required to
connect storm drainage to storm sewer
sewer separation project com-
pletion will be late 2013 and
final restoration will be in the
spring of 2014.
According to Michael
Karafa from Jones & Henry
Engineers, when the project
is complete, there will be sep-
arate sanitary sewer and
storm sewers in the project
Upon completion of the
sewer separation project,
homeowners will be notified,
by the Village orders, that all
storm drainage, such as a
downspout, yard drain, or
sump pump, be directed to a
storm sewer. Only sanitary
flow from within the house
will be allowed in the sanitary
What storm connection
means is that no water from
any roof, surface, ground,
sump pump, swimming pool
or other natural precipitation
shall be discharged into the
sanitary sewerage system.
Dwellings and other build-
ings and structures which re-
quire, because of the
infiltration of water into base-
ments, crawl spaces, and the
like, a sump pump system to
discharge excess water, shall
have a permanently installed
discharge line that shall not at
any time discharge water into
the sanitary sewerage system.
A permanent installation
shall be one that provides for
year-round discharge capabil-
ity to either the outside of the
dwelling, building, or struc-
ture, or is connected to the
Village storm sewer or dis-
charges through the curb and
gutter to the street. These ef-
forts by the homeowners will
help to eliminate basement
backups. Therefore, the citi-
zens in this project area will
play a part in the success of
the project.
What sanitary connection
means is that no sewage from
sinks, toilets or showers be
discharged into storm sewers.
Dwellings and other buildings
and structures shall have a
permanently installed dis-
charge line from the point that
the sanitary exits the structure
to the cleanout, installed at the
right-of-way, which goes di-
rectly to a sanitary sewer.

He said, There is not a sin-
gle instance in history in
which civil liberty was lost,
and religious liberty preserved
entire; so warned Presbyte-
rian minister John Wither-
Witherspoon had emigrated
from Scotland to take the post
as president of the College of
New Jersey (now Princeton
University). Arriving in 1768
with his family and 300 books
for the college library, he
threw himself into the task of
building up the young school.
As the Revolution ap-
proached, Witherspoons Pres-
byterian belief that people
should choose their own gov-
ernment put him firmly on the
Patriot side. He realized the
colonies would have to fight
If your cause is just, if your
principles are pure, and if your
conduct is prudent, you need
not fear the multitude of op-
posing hosts, he preached.
In the Continental Con-
gress, some delegates worried
the country was not yet ripe
for independence. The coun-
try is not only ripe for the
measure, but in danger of rot-
ting for the want of it! With-
erspoon retorted.
He became the only minis-
ter to sign the Declaration of
Independence. He lost a son in
the Revolution, which also left
the college in dire straits. After
the war he tackled the job of
rebuilding the school.
Do not live useless and die
contemptible, he exhorted his
students, who included nine
future cabinet officers, 21 sen-
ators, 39 congressmen, three
Supreme Court justices, 12
governors, a vice president,
and a president, James Madi-
son, who was also one of five
Witherspoon students at the
Constitutional Convention.

New Paulding County wind
farm slated to roll in 2014
Feature Writer
If steps unfold the way Na-
tional Wind LLC officials
hope, the next big Paulding
County wind project, also
known as Northwest Ohio
Wind Energy LLC, could be
in operation in 2014.
Media representative Joe
Jennings said that an applica-
tion for a wind farm in Blue
Creek and part of Latty Town-
ship was submitted to the
Ohio Power Siting Board in
May. Currently, said Jennings,
the process is in the stage of
board members asking ques-
tions and requesting supple-
mentary information
concerning the project.
If everything works out,
we hope to begin and com-
plete this project in 2014, but
we have to get certification
first, said Jennings.
Jennings said that company
officials are currently negoti-
ating with a potential offer
taker to purchase power from
the farm. He noted that once
that happens, the project can
move ahead as expected.
Jennings said that one other
major factor is approval of
federal government tax credits
by the end of 2013. That re-
view is currently taking place.
That (approval) has to be
given in order to start con-
struction and break ground,
commented Jennings. We
cant hire a contractor until we
have certification from the
Ohio Power Siting Board.
According to Jennings, the
new project is a 100
megawatts project. The num-
ber of towers involved will de-
pend upon whether or not
company officials choose to
use 1.7 or 2.0 MW wind tur-

sioners indicated their com-

The wind farms have al-
ready paved more miles of

ble of, added Klopfenstein.
Commissioner Tony Zart-
man said that existing wind

where farms are located have
positive benefit including

said Klopfenstein.

A Penny For
Your Thoughts....
By: Nancy Whitaker
Whatever happened to
newscasters like Walter
Cronkite or Paul Harvey? We
have so many different ways
of hearing and viewing the
news. We have television, ac-
cess to Internet news and yes,
we still have radios and news-
papers. We hear good news,
bad news, old news and new
Every news station shouts
out, Breaking news. Break-
ing news. I think, Oh my,
what just happened? Is there
a major earthquake, tsunami
or plane crash?
Nine chances out of ten, the
breaking news will be some-
thing that was reported two
weeks ago. Chef Paula Deen,
teen Trayvon Martin, Jody
Arias and disgraced politician
Anthony Weiner are some of
the people recently paraded
through the media.
Then the birth of Prince
William and Kates baby
dominated the airwaves as the
whole world waited anx-
iously on the royal babys ar-
I was shocked to see liter-
ally thousands of media and
photographers camped out-
side of the hospital in London
for days, waiting for that little
babys birth. They kept call-
ing him the royal baby and
they wagered bets on what
the childs name would be.
I started to think to myself,
You know, there was more
hype, celebration and joy at
this royal babys birth than
there was for Jesus birth.
I wonder what the media
would have to report on the
birth of Christ? How would
his birth be reported? Would
anyone mention the star?
Would people be wondering
what his name would be?
Pretend we are reporting
the news of Jesus birth. Well
since I am a reporter, I want
to get the news out first. So I
begin my newscast, Some
town residents are standing
here on the streets of Bethle-
hem asking each other if any-
one had witnessed the
appearance of a star in the
skies that people seemed to
be following.
Something strange is hap-
pening as we speak. All of the
hotel rooms are filled to ca-
pacity tonight as many people
returned here to pay their
taxes. One young woman
came in on a donkey and her
companion was walking be-
side her. She appeared to be
almost ready to deliver a
Mr. Innkeeper had to re-
fuse the couple a room as the
rooms were all filled. Seeing
how close the young girl was
to delivery and how tired she
was, he told them they could
stay in the stable with the an-
The news here however, is
that it has been reported years
ago that this new baby is to be
the savior of the world. So I
ask this question, Why isnt
everyone celebrating?
Breaking news! Breaking
news! Making their arrival
are three men and it appears
they are bringing gifts. I ask
them, Where are you from?
Why are you here? How far
did you travel?
They told me they followed
the star and were bringing
gifts for this new babe who
would be our King, Lord and
I see a little boy playing a
drum and hear voices singing
Glory to God in the highest.
Peace on earth, good will to
But wait, I say, Breaking
news! Breaking news! The
birth of this baby should be
spread to the far corners of
the world. Spread the news,
spread the news!
Excitedly I report, A baby
was born tonight to Mary and
Joseph of Bethlehem. There
was no room in the inn, the
baby was born in a stable, no
doctors were present, the
newborn babe is lying in a
manger, and mother and child
are doing well.
The new arrival was
named Jesus and shepherds,
wise men and angels pro-
claimed the news of His
Now, let me ask this, Do
you enjoy all the hype and
media attention given to cer-
tain stories? Do you think we
sometimes forget what news
is? Do you think more of a
celebration has been made
out of the royal baby than
Jesus? Let me know and Ill

FUNDRAISING FOR NEW VAN The Paulding County Senior Center has officially started its
2013 Van Campaign. The centers 1999 Dodge handicapped accessible van needs retired. Pictured

ber/officer and an active participant at the senior center. The total project for replacement is ap-
proximately $45,000. A grant for funds from a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) has
provided the first $15,000. The donations are in levels of: Platinum - $1,000+, Gold - $500-$999,
Silver - $100-$499, Bronze - $1-$99. Any amount is appreciated. Platinum and gold sponsors will

The Rest of the Story: Holocaust
survivor to return to Paulding
PAULDING I surely do
not want vengeance but
moral education, states
William Bill Meyer when
remembering the Holocaust.
Bill Meyer, the last known
Holocaust survivor in the state
of Indiana spoke to a capti-
vated audience of over 400
this past May in Paulding. By
popular demand, the Paulding
County Carnegie Library is
able to bring Mr. Meyer back
to share The Rest of the
The event will be held at 6
p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 13 at the
OSU Extension Building on
the fairgrounds in Paulding.
Hear the rest of the story of
how Bill Meyer, after escap-
ing from a concentration
camp, lived by his wits and
fled his homeland to America
where he survived with few
skills, no knowledge of the
language and constantly with
the horrible pain of his past.
Parts of his story are hilarious
such as the time he took a
truck driving job and ended up
in Nevada without his trailer
when he was supposed to be in
Philadelphia. This inspiring
story will make you laugh and
make you cry and is sure to
impact your life.
Do not be the person that
uses a minor excuse to miss
this major event. It will be life
changing. All survivors of the
Holocaust worldwide will be
gone within a few short years.
Bill is recovering from a
stroke and is very weak, and is
anxious to return to Paulding
where he says he has received
the warmest welcome ever.
There will be an opportunity
to greet Mr. Meyer at the end
of the program.
Although this program is
free, guests must register in
advance to ensure a seat as
space is limited. Call 419-399-
2032 to reserve a spot for this
special event.
Three levies to be
on November ballot
PAULDING Last week,
the Paulding County commis-
sioners passed a resolution to
place a 0.20-mill levy on the
November ballot to benefit the
Paulding County Board of
Bill Edwards of the Pauld-
ing County Health Depart-
ment briefly discussed the
health department budget and
renewal levy. He noted immu-
nization reimbursements are
crucial and having an experi-
enced biller is important.
Auditor Claudia Fickel pre-
sented the July sales tax, June
General Fund receipts and
June General Fund expenses
reports. She noted July sales
tax revenue was up from June.
Fickel reported a General
Fund balance of $1,440,000,
compared to $1,414,000 at the
end of July 2012. Casino rev-
enue, payable in July, is ex-
pected to be $60,000. The
second-half wind farm settle-
ment has been done.
She remarked there are
three county levies this fall
which include: E-911, the li-
brary and the health depart-
ment. She reviewed the recent
house bill addressing dog tag
options. She reminded the
commissioners that dog tag
rates need to be set by Aug.
Clerk of Courts Ann Pease
presented reports for review.
She noted the title office con-
tinues to be busy. The counter
and work place improvements
made the office more efficient
and customer friendly. Her of-
fice continues to process pass-
In other business:
A fee of 10 cents will be
charged for copies made on
the commissioners office
copier and copies made for
inter-county office use shall be
exempt from the fee.
Stan Harmon, David
Cline and Bill Shugars, mem-
bers of the Paulding County
Board of Elections, met with
the commissioners to discuss
handicapped accessibility at
the OSU Extension building,
which is utilized as a precinct
for voting purposes. Harmon
presented a diagram of the
proposed project. which is to
be funded by a state grant.
A resident who lives on
CR 171 in the Auglaize Sewer
Project would like to have a
tap on her residence parcel.
The commissioners will at-
tempt to arrange a future
meeting to discuss options.
The commissioners ap-
proved a resolution to have the
auditor to repay an advance of
$25,537.27 from the Moving
Ohio Forward grant to the
General Fund.
In regular session on July
22, the commissioners said a
third wind energy company
will soon be ready to break
ground on their project. North-
west Ohio Wind Energys par-
ent company, Trishe, plans to
erect 50-55 turbines in Blue
Creek and Latty townships in
the southern part of Paulding
The commissioners have
supported alternative energy
projects, noting that they
broaden the countys tax base,
providing new revenue to the
schools, townships, and other
county entities. They encour-
age all developers to consider
Paulding County as a possible
project site. They also noted
the two wind energy compa-
nies they have worked with
(EDP Renewables and Iber-
drola) have been very commu-
nity minded.
EDP Renewables made
their first PILOT payment in
February 2013, for the tax
year 2012. Power generated
from Iberdrolas project went
on line in 2012 and wont be
taxed until 2014 for the full
calendar year 2013.
Keith Turvey from Tri-
County ADAMHS, and the
commissioners had a tele-
phone conference to discuss
the new board structure.
Turvey explained that the
recently passed state budget
bill provides permissive lan-
guage for mental health
boards to go from an 18-mem-
ber board to a 14-member
The rationale for the change
is the issue in keeping an ac-
tive 18-member board, largely
due to the specified nature of
those who are state appointed.
Those members appointed by
the state must have appropri-
ate licensure or credentials.
Tom Edwards of Smith-
Boughan presented the main-
tenance agreement for the
HVAC system at the court-
house and the sheriffs office.
Sheriff Landers and Dave
Cline were also present at the
meeting. Edwards noted a 3%
increase annually on each of
the five-year agreements. He
discussed the settings on the
thermostats and noted differ-
ent filters are being used in the
wall units at the courthouse.
The sheriffs office is cur-
rently on one chiller unit, lo-
cated on the roof of their
building. The possibility of
zoning the rooms and in-
stalling individual units in an
attempt to economize was dis-
The sheriff reported the dog
kennel transition has been
going smoothly. The commis-
sioners discussed the recent
mandatory law regarding dog
tag fee options (one-year,
three-year, or permanent). A
meeting will be scheduled
with the dog warden and the
auditor to discuss these op-

Weekly Reminder
QUESTION: Should I be
concerned if my child has
an imaginary friend?
JIM: According to Dr. Bill
Maier, imaginary friends are
a completely normal part of
life for preschoolers. Parents
shouldnt be concerned about
them unless a child is so fo-
cused on the relationship with
the friend that he or she
seems to be losing touch with
And, of course, you should
never allow your child to
blame their imaginary friend
for their own misbehavior. In
time, the imaginary friend
should disappear.
Danny Huerta, a staff coun-
selor at Focus, gives an illus-
tration: If kids have been
made fun of, a lot of times
theyll create a superhero that
has powers that will help
them feel protected, maybe a
stuffed animal that can be fe-
rocious, like the comic strip
Calvin and Hobbes. Hobbes
is an example of an imaginary
friend coming to life and the
fun a child can have with
Research shows that an
only or first child may be
more likely to invent an
imaginary friend, and lan-
guage skills may develop
sooner for children who talk
with an imaginary friend.
Although children should
not be discouraged to invent
imaginary friends, make sure
your child is playing with
other children and not exist-
ing completely in a pretend
Interacting with your child
about their imaginary friend
can lead to some great teach-
able moments and opportuni-
ties to address specific
situations that may have
prompted them to invent their
pretend companion. Dr.
Maier says: You dont have
to go so far as setting a place
at the table for your childs
imaginary acquaintance, but
playing along can be fun for
both of you.
QUESTION: My son is
heading to college next
month. Im worried about
the challenges hell face,
challenges to his faith and
his moral values, not to
mention the practical chal-
lenges of living on his own
for the first time. How can I
let go?
Vice President of Family
Ministries: Your love for
your son is touching and in-
spiring. At the same time, its
important for you to remem-
ber that leaving the nest,
going off to college, estab-
lishing independence, and
learning to deal with the de-
mands of daily life are all
normal rites of passage for a
young adult. Its o.k. to
mourn this change of season.
A certain degree of sadness
and bittersweet emotion are
normal. But dont look at the
situation as if youre losing
your son. Youre simply let-
ting go of the joys and re-
sponsibilities of parenting
him under your roof.
Your son has reached a
place in his personal develop-
ment where he must assume
increasing responsibility for
his own actions. Its up to him
to decide how hes going to
respond to the challenges
hell face at college.
This is the moment for which
youve been preparing him
ever since you brought him
home from the hospital. At
some point, he has to pass be-
yond your control and dis-
cover what it means to be
accountable to himself and to
The most important mes-
sage you can send your son as
he goes off to college is, I
believe in you. You have
what it takes to be success-
ful! A boy needs to hear this
from his parents. Then, show
him through your behaviors
that you believe in him. Dont
jump in too quickly to give
advice. Allow him to fail.
Dont call to remind him to
study, and so on.
Your relationship with your
By Jim Daly
son will never again be the
way it was when he was
younger. But this process of
letting go of giving him
wings can actually result in
a deeper, more enriching rela-
tionship going forward.

My favorite flower
In one of my garden writer
online groups, someone re-
cently posed the question,
Whats your favorite
flower? Most of us have one,
but few of us want to be lim-
ited to a single choice, making
this a difficult question to an-
To everything there is a sea-
son, and so it is with flowers
and favorites. Depending on
the time of year and some-
times even the day that you
ask me, Im as fickle as a 13-
year-old girl when it comes to
declaring which flower I love
In earliest spring, its the
snowdrop, for perhaps obvi-
ous reasons. It isnt one with
raucous colors, which you
might think would appeal to
me after a relatively colorless
winter. But this flower that de-
fies the elements and pops out
of the ground and shyly shows
its white petticoats decorated
with little green hearts lets me
know that life goes on and an-
nounces that spring will come.
Ohios other spring
ephemerals are all worthy of
being on any favorites list, but
I especially love to see blood-
roots pristine white blooms. I
love the scalloped foliage as
much as the flowers and its a
good thing because its blooms
are the very definition of
ephemeral fleeting and
short-lived lasting only a
Later, in early to midsum-
mer, along comes my all-time
favorite white daisies.
Theyre simple and they elicit
smiles from nearly everyone
who sees them. Maybe its be-
cause of that little game we
played with them in our
younger days loves me,
loves me not or maybe its
because theyre plentiful, easy
to grow, and are said to repre-
sent innocence. In any case,
youll always find a large re-
freshing clump or two of
white daisies at Our Little
In the midst of summer, like
now, Im in love with the
daylilies. It seems that this
one is either loved or hated by
gardeners, with legitimate rea-
sons for both feelings. When
theyre in bloom, theyre glo-
rious. Afterwards, many vari-
eties get a little straggly
looking and require some
maintenance by deadheading
and pruning out barren flower
stalks as well as pulling yel-
lowing foliage.
Some daylilies are worse
about the yellowing foliage
than others, but the gorgeous
array of colors and forms they
display makes them worth the
effort in my garden. Some
have a lovely fragrance, too.
This year has been especially
kind to the daylilies; theyre
taller, more floriferous, and
the individual blooms seem to
be larger and more intense in
color. Maybe its due to the
regular rains weve received
prior to their bloom period.
As fall approaches, I look
forward to seeing the mums
and asters, of course, but my
great love of all the fall
bloomers is the toad lily. Not
a very pretty name for a
flower, is it? The botanical
name is Tricyrtis (genus) and
there are quite a few different
species. Most of the flowers
look like little orchids with
spots on the petals (thus the
toady name), but Tojen
(a.k.a. Togen) has little to no
spotting and is my favorite
among the many cultivars
Toad lilies provide color at
a time when most perennials
are winding down the season
and one of its best traits is that
it likes it best in shade. Come
September and October, I can
count on toad lilies to brighten
up the darker corners of the
In winter, I rely on amaryllis
to get me through the absence of
flowers from the garden. Easily
grown from bulbs in containers
in the house, South American
native amaryllis is readily avail-
able to us here in the north.

Lawrence (1904-1985) said,
We can have flowers nearly
every month of the year. What
is your favorite flower and why
is it your favorite? Either email
me or share it on my Our Little

Is that plant poison
hemlock or wild carrot?
By Mark Holtsberry
Education specialist
Paulding SWCD
Poison hemlock, an invasive weed, is a mem-
ber of the carrot family, so it shares many char-
acteristics with other weeds found in Ohio
including native wild carrots, also called Queen
Annes Lace. The hemlock has a biennial (two-
year) life cycle.
Poison hemlock
may be distinguished
from wild carrot
flowers by looking at
the stem. Poison
hemlock has purple
spots or blotches and
no hairs along the
flower stem. Wild
carrot has no
blotches and is usu-
ally covered with
All growth stages
of poison hemlock
have bluish-green
leaves that are fern-
like and wild carrot
has more rounded
than sharp-pointed
leaves. Also, clusters
of tiny white flowers
are borne on struc-
tures called umbels
(look like upside down umbrellas) on the upper
part of the flowering stalks. Flowering season
will last from now through August.
Poison hemlock is a highly visible plant since
it reaches usually five to seven feet tall this time
of year. The favored location is along streams,
ditches and old barn lots, although it can be
found about anywhere. There is an odor to the
plant that is sometimes described as mousy,
which is like finding a mouse nest and the odor
that follows.
True to its name, the plant is moderately to
highly poisonous to cattle, horses, swine and
sheep. The most toxic parts of the plant are roots
and seed.
Affected animals show signs within two hours
of eating it. Most animals do not eat it other than
nibbling on the leaves. To create a toxic condi-
tion requires cattle to eat one to two pounds of
the material. The risk to animals should be min-
imal unless they have nothing else to eat.
Symptoms include nervousness, trembling,
uncoordination and death in some cases. Preg-
nant cows that graze poison hemlock may expe-
rience birth defects in their calves such as cleft
palate and spinal abnormalities. The critical time
in the pregnancy for
cattle is 40 through
70 days.
Poison hemlock is
also toxic to people
who touch the plant.
Care should be used
if removing by hand
as some individuals
have reported be-
coming sick after
working in and
around it.
Poison hemlock
spreads by seed,
which may be dis-
tributed by birds and
rodents. It is best to
control while in the
rosette stage, partic-
ularly in the fall.
However, control at
this time of year will
prevent additional
seed production.
Control or eradication can involve mowing
during the bloom stage, tilling or using selective
herbicides like 2-4D, dicamba, crossbow or non-
selective herbicides such as glyphosate
(Roundup). Glysophate appears to work the best.
It can be eradicated by applying any of these her-
bicides early in the year. Every effort should be
made to prevent seed production.
Another recommended control is to use Rem-
edy Ultra, Tordon 22K or Grazon P&D before
poison hemlock bolts in the early spring. It may
also control it in the fall in the rosette stage.
I have seen and also mowed hemlock at the
Black Swamp Nature Center, so be aware of
what you are touching.
Have a safe and wonderful walk this summer.
Poison hemlock resembles wild carrot (a.k.a.
Queen Annes Lace), but flowers occur in clusters
called compound umbels. Poison hemlock flower
clusters are on highly branched stalks, which can
be up to 8 feet off the ground.

Governor signs Boater Freedom Act
PORT CLINTON Governor John R. Kasich has signed into
law House Bill 29, known as the Boater Freedom Act, which
establishes criteria for watercraft safety inspections on Ohios
waters. This legislation should decrease the number of safety
inspections that recreational boaters experience on Lake Erie
and all of Ohios waterways.
The bill establishes that a state or local law enforcement of-
ficer will no longer have the authority to stop or board a vessel
to conduct a safety inspection unless the owner or operator vol-
untarily requests such an inspection; there is reasonable suspi-
cion the vessel, its equipment or its operator is in violation of
watercraft or local law; or the boat is being inspected as part
of an authorized checkpoint.
For more information on Ohios boating programs and boat-
ing rules, go to watercraft.ohiodnr.gov.

New courthouse roof
installation is under way
Feature Writer
On Monday morning, construction workers
from Greg Huey Construction Inc., Pennville,
Ind., backed up their equipment to the Pauld-
ing County Courthouse to begin the big task
of installing a new roof on the 127-year-old
When last summers severe windstorm
caused damage to portions of the roof, Pauld-
ing County Commissioners discovered a
sobering fact, the roof was in much worse dis-
repair than anyone had realized.
This renovation is being done because of
the storm last summer, said Commissioner
Chairman Fred Pieper. We discovered then
how much the repair was needed. Both age
and disrepair contributed to the decision.
When commissioners examined potential
replacement material, they chose Decra steel
shingles which carry a 50-year warrantee.
We liked them because of their strength but
they look asphalt authentic, observed Com-
missioner Roy Klopfenstein. We knew that
the roof was bad. Contractors went up and
looked at it and then we went up and took a
look at it.
Huey said on Monday that the roof was es-
pecially deteriorating along the edges.
The gutter edges were in pretty bad shape,
said Huey, who specializes in restoring old
historic buildings.
Commissioners have also been restoring
and renovating other needed repairs around
the old structure. Sandstone structure at the
entrances was deteriorating, allowing moisture
to penetrate and cause other interior damage.
We are fixing the sandstone to prevent
other parts of the inner courthouse structure
from deteriorating, said Klopfenstein.
Everything above the roof was painted last
summer. We have also restored several win-
dow panes.
Interior painting has been done in certain
offices on every floor, said Commissioner
Tony Zartman.
Commissioners said that they were amazed
when they put the roof up for bid that Hueys
estimate came in $50,000 ($109,762.40) lower
than the second bid.
When I came into office, the budget was
so tight that commissioners had been forced
to cut everything, said Zartman. Now we are
able to do this. This is not preventative main-
tenance; these repairs had to be done in order
to protect this beautiful courthouse. We are at-
tempting to be as responsible as we can with
tax dollars in maintaining this building.
The courthouse was built in 1886 in what
was known at the time as a Richardsonian Ro-
manesque style. It is the third courthouse
building erected in the county.
When Paulding County was established in
1820, Charloe was originally named the county
seat. However, as Paulding began to grow sig-
nificantly, Charloe stagnated and the county seat
was moved to Paulding. The countys second
courthouse was built in 1837 in the villages cen-
tral square. It served the county for 50 years be-
fore the present structure was erected.
In 1974, the Paulding County Courthouse was
listed on the National Register of Historic Places,
due to its well-preserved architecture that was
deemed significant statewide.

ODOT seeks public comment
on proposed county projects
LIMA The Ohio Depart-
ment of Transportation
(ODOT), in compliance with
the National Environmental
Policy Act (NEPA), an-
nounced Monday it is seeking
public comments regarding
proposed projects, including
two in Paulding County:
Safe Routes To School -
Antwerp Phase II (PID:
93589) The proposed proj-
ect is funded with federal
funds from the Safe Routes to
School Program. The Village
of Antwerp and the Antwerp
Local School District have
proposed to add new side-
walk along the west side of
Harrmann Road from the
Antwerp School to Canal
Road and along the north side
of Canal Road from Har-
rmann Road westerly to
Kroos Drive. Traffic during
this project will be main-
tained at all times. The con-
struction of this project is
currently scheduled for the
fall of 2015.
ODOT Paulding
County Garage (95968)
The proposed project is spon-
sored by ODOT and includes
acquiring land for a new full-
service facility at the existing
Paulding County garage site
to replace the existing out-of-
date facility. An adjacent
property was put up for sale
by the current owner and
ODOT is pursuing purchas-
ing it. Once purchased the
structure will be removed to
prepare for a new facility.
Property purchase is sched-
uled for summer 2013; how-
ever, a schedule for structure
removal and construction of a
new facility has not been de-

helpers in the past years when
it comes to sorting. Their advi-
sors are asking the kids to help
again! It is great to see these
kids step up and contribute to
their community.
After the first round of sort-
ing, whatever supplies are

My life changed forever when I found out I had stage 3 breast cancer.
The people at Mercy Deance had tears in their eyes when they gave
me my diagnosis and wasted no time getting me into surgery. After
that, I had my cancer treatment. And again, the people at Mercy were
unbelievably caring and made a bad experience as good as it possibly
could be. Today, Im cancer-free. Im Cindy, and Mercy gets me.
