PAULDING The Progress received an
alert from the Paulding Police Department on
Friday that approximately five different area
businesses had been passed counterfeit money.
The counterfeit bills included $10, $20, $50
and $100s.
The currency looks and feels differently, the
color is a little darker and the cut around the
edge is uneven. According to reports, two indi-
viduals who were allegedly in possession of the
money could be facing charges and informa-
tion was turned over to the prosecutor.
Each business owner or anyone taking cash
at a business is urged to mark their bills and
check them to make sure they are real bills.
In Grover Hill on Monday night, a business
believed they were in possession of fake bills
and the Paulding County Sheriffs Office was
called. Those bills were determined to not be
The police department said theyve had no
further incidents since Friday.
If you believe you are in the possession of a
counterfeit bill, notify the Paulding Police
Department at 419-399-3311. If at all possible,
get a license plate number.

Counterfeit bills have been passed in Paulding area businesses. In the photo is a counterfeit
$20 bill that was turned over to the Paulding Police Department. Note that this bill appears to
have been cut unevenly along the bottom edge, but could easily be mistaken for the real thing.

Monday, Aug. 19.
Councilman Tom Diaz ex-
tended thanks from council
to the village employees
who diligently worked to re-
pair the several broken water
lines last week and get the
water back to a safe level for
Councilwoman Barb Rife
asked, What caused the
water line malfunction?
Village administrator Harry
Wiebe commented that there
had been some conjecture,
but that he was unwilling to
speculate. Mayor White stat-
ed that everything is fixed
and back to normal.
Wiebe and White met
with the company that is
doing the street paving fol-
lowing the sewer separation
project, and it was deter-
mined that the only paving
that is part of the project is
the trench cut fill.
It was announced that
there will be some paving at
the new water plant on Aug.
21-22. This paving may re-
sult in the closing of the
park at times during these
two days.
Mayor White announced
that he wanted to remind
everyone that school was
starting and there were a lot
of obstacles and hidden
spots around the village due
to the construction, so be
careful and watch out for
the children.
Mayor White also asked
council to remember Ralph

break occurred at approxi-
mately 3 p.m., on Monday
Aug. 12. The breaks oc-
curred almost simultaneous-
ly on Emerald Road and
Caroline Street, Baldwin and
Walnut and Dewitt and
Jackson Streets.
While there were four dif-
ferent locations there was ap-
proximately six different
breaks, three of them in front
of Larsons Body Shop.
Workers from the village
had worked their regular
shifts on Monday when the
breaks occurred. They then
worked all night Monday
night and Tuesday until ap-
proximately 8:30 p.m.
Mike Winners, Water and
Waste Water Superintendent,
said that even though the
water pressure got below 20
pounds, Paulding was never
without water.
The EPA has rules in force
and those codes must be met
before any water can be used
for drinking after a water
break. A boil alert was issued
for Paulding until the water
was safe to drink.
The boil advisory was lift-
ed on Thursday after many
testings were done to ensure
the water was safe to drink.
The cause of the water
breaks is still being described
as unknown circumstances.
ANTWERP An update on
the construction of the Dollar
General Store, a change in the

Although no projected
opening date for the new

Also, as a part of Keerans
report, she informed council
of the changes taking place in-
volving the pick up of chil-

Concerning a piece of prop-
erty located near the ball
fields, Mayor Tom VanVlerah

donated back to the village.
Once the legal paperwork is

Feature Writer
Herber, executive director for
the United Way of Paulding
County, told those attending
the campaign kickoff lunch at
the Paulding County Senior
Center that $60,000 has been
established as the 2014 cam-
paign goal. Herber said that
faithful county givers topped
the 2013 goal of $55,000 by
nearly $5,000.
This years pacesetter is the
Paulding County Library
which has established $2,000
for its goal. Library executive
director Susan Pieper told
those present that the library
system is already half way to-
ward meeting that goal and
has not received employees
pledges as of yet.
We are proud to be the
pacesetter, said Pieper. I
would like to thank Vicky
Hull for pulling our campaign
On July 30, library officials
had a pacesetter campaign
kickoff and served over 350
sandwiches (hot dogs and
hamburgers) in their effort to
draw awareness to the upcom-
ing campaign.
This was all based on do-
nations, said Pieper. We did-
nt spend a penny of anyones
money in doing this.
This years United Way
campaign for the county is,
Live United.
Imagine what would be
possible if every agency in
Paulding County partnered to-
gether, said Pieper. Imagine
what we could do if we part-
nered together, the community
came together and we did all
that we could to improve each
others quality of lifestyle to-
gether. Theres no reason why
United Way cant bring in six
figures every year.
Once again, Stan and Barb
Searing have agreed to serve
as co-chairs for this years
campaign. Searing attributed
their willingness to repeat as
co-chairs to their appreciation
for all that the Paulding
County community has done
for them and their families.
This community gave us a
home and a good place to raise
our kids, Searing said.
United Way unites to place
our money for our own neigh-
bors and relatives here in the
county, said Searing. There
is no better way to give your
funds than to the people in this

grams include American Red

United Way of Paulding
County is really a table, a
place where everybody can
come and speak as equals,
said Herber. We are not the
experts in knowing all the so-
lutions, but we know we can
facilitate discussion to lead to
best strategies.
Giving to United Way of
Paulding County is the best
thing to do to get the bang for
your buck, Herber continued.

School began this week
and if anyone still needs
school supplies Susan Farr
of Community for Kids said,
We did communicate with
all of the PEVS staff that we
will do our best to accom-
modate any student that they
see who may still need help.
Each year we find a few
kids who still need supplies
on the first day and we get
them the necessary tools,
Farr added.
The pick up date for
Paulding school supplies
was Aug. 17. Farr noted,
The Paulding site has dis-
tributed supplies to 186 kids
at this time, which is up from
132 last year. This was an in-
crease of 41 percent.
According to Bill Sherry
of the Grover Hill
Ministerial Association,
book bags filled with the
grade appropriate supplies
were given to 55 students at
Grover Hill Elementary on
Monday evening. Sherry
noted that they had given
supplies to 10 more students
than last year.
He also reported that the
ministerial association pro-
vided some extra supplies
that can be handed out dur-
ing the school year as need-
ed. The supplies were pro-
cured by the Eastern
Paulding County Ministerial
Association and Stoneco.
Sherry said, We had ade-
quate supplies and funding.

PAULDING Members of the Paulding
County Extension Advisory Committee contin-
ue to work with the Ohio State Universitys
human resources department to find a new
OSU Extension agriculture agent.
Jim Lopshire retired from the post during the
Paulding County Fair in June.
According to the committees president,
Jerry Zielke, OSU and the 12-person advisory
committee has been cooperating in the process
since May. Their original intent was to find a
replacement for Lopshire by September. At this
point, he is unsure when the hire will be made.
Another meeting of the key people is com-
ing later this month.
Attempts to reach the OSU regional direc-

Yesterday afternoon while
we were in the middle of can-
ning pickles, Uncle Joe and
Betty and two of their grand-
daughters came for a short
Daughter, Lovina, 9, seems
to be recovering well from
surgery she had last week.
She had her tonsils and ade-
noids removed. She cant do
any strenuous exercise for 2
weeks. She says the hardest
thing is not being able to ride
the pony. She loves to read
and write, so that helps keep
her occupied. She enjoyed
getting the extra ice cream
and popsicles.
The children have only 3
1/2 weeks until school starts.
This summer flew by so fast.
My husband, Joe, and the
boys dug up all our potatoes.
This year we laid the potato
seeds on top of the soil then
covered thickly with straw.
We had a nice crop of pota-
toes and that method seemed
to work well. It also kept the
weeds from taking over. We
had some nice-sized potatoes.
There were a lot of potatoes
on one plant.
It is Thursday morning.
Time is going by fast, but I
need to take time to get this
column in todays mail. My
plans are to go help my sister
Emma today. She is having a
garage sale this weekend.
With both her daughters de-
tasseling corn, I offered to
help her organize everything.
My husband, Joe, and
daughter, Elizabeth, have
both left for the RV factories
where they work. Daughter,
Susan, and son, Benjamin,
left around 6 a.m. to go de-
Daughters Verena and
Loretta are staying with a 93-
year-old lady from 3 p.m. to
12:30 a.m., so I am leaving
them sleep a little longer this
morning. I do hope we can be
leaving for Emmas house by
8:15 to 8:30 a.m. The lady
lives around three miles from
here, so her son brings the
girls home when he gets off
work. This will only be until
she is recovered enough to
stay alone.
This week we have been
kept busy canning tomatoes
and pickles. I made 22 quarts
of freezer pickles to put into
the freezer for Emma and
Jacobs upcoming church
With the garden starting to
empty out here and there, it
makes you think of autumn.
We were blessed with a lot of
nice rains to help the garden
grow this summer. We have
been having cool evenings
and mornings which make it
feel like fall weather.
With it being blueberry
season, here is a good recipe!
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups blueberries
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup white sugar
Beat together butter and
sugar. Then add baking pow-
der and salt. Add eggs one at
a time and stir well. Add flour
and milk alternately.
Stir in blueberries gently,
pour into 9x9-inch pan or a
loaf pan and bake for about
one hour.
When the bread has fin-
ished baking prick the top
with a fork. Brush lemon

Chris Johnson (right) was the speaker the Paulding Kiwanis Club
meeting. He talked about the young junior high girls that didnt have
any way of playing competitive basketball, so he started a junior high
girls league. His group is small now, but he hopes next year it will
become much larger. They have a place to play at the former Antwerp
School gym, now called The MAC (McLaughlin Athletic Center). The
Paulding Kiwanis Club is the sponsor. More news about this venture
as it progresses. Lisa McClure was program chairman.

He is just a dog
In his column Homespun, Jim Langham wrote last
week, It has been 12 years since our home experienced the
loss of our last dog. Our Benji, which really did look like a
Benji, had gone to his reward, the end of a lifetime chain
of departing dog broken hearts. What a statement is that
all there is for our dog
friends, who are always
willing to wag their tails in
happiness to see us come
through the door, bring their
favorite toy and drop it at
our feet because they want
to play, or do all those dog-
gie tricks for a small treat
and a pat on the head? I am afraid so; our dog friends go
through life trying to please us and taking our rejection and
sometimes neglect with their tails wagging in hope to hear us
say Good Doggie.
As I was pondering Jims statement, I couldnt help but
think about how I sometimes treat the people around me. I
may have a loving doggie countenance, but deep down I
am thinking something else, like hurry up, cant we do this
some other time, is this really that important, or I really need
to get going. I have to think about my dogs next reaction
after being so loving, friendly and glad to see me, because
the next thing I observe is that he has disappeared to his fa-
vorite spot in the family room and having done his doggie
bit will soon be sound asleep.
In my opinion, I am not quite like my dog. I give people a
lot more respect as I shake their hands or give them a hug. I
also listen to their stories, give advice if asked, share in their
tender moments and sometimes tell them what is important
in my life. I think that we humans have a different, even
higher level of ability to interact with our fellow mankind.
But, in my opinion, sometimes we stop at the doggie hello
and just want to move on to the next best thing.
I think we often treat God similar to the way we treat our
dog. God is always there for us, ready to help and guide us
through the best and toughest times and God always loves
us. I think we humans want to say to our God, Good God
and then go our own way leaving God behind, thinking we
have done the right thing by acknowledging God so we can
do what the world is calling us to do.
I could say more, but if you are curious and want to hear
more, dont forget, I hope to see you in church this Sunday;
we might have something in common.

Agriculture and Natural Re-
sources Committee as they
toured some northwest Ohio
The committee members first
visited the anaerobic digestion
renewable energy facility in
Haviland, a partnership between
Quasar Energy Group and Hav-
iland Plastic Products. There,
they observed how the com-
pany effectively creates electric-
ity and compressed natural gas
without harming the environ-
So much focus has been on
energy production, and with
agriculture continuing to be

The committee members also
stopped by Cooper Farms, in

tant to recognize examples
like Cooper Farms, which
have been in business for
decades and still respect the
environment around them,

A Penny For
Your Thoughts....
By: Nancy Whitaker
I think one of my favorite
things in the whole world is
candy. Candy is sweet, lifts the
spirits and is a tantalizing
morsel made to tickle our taste
Through the years, I have
tasted many kinds of candy and
can recall the many varieties
we used to have. When I was
little, I would go down to the
local grocery store and stand
for hours in front of the candy
counter, deciding what kind of
candy I wanted to spend my
few pennies on. Yes, back then
you could get a piece or two of
candy for a penny.
One kind of candy I have
never cared for is licorice. At
one time all licorice was black
and tasted nasty to me. My taste
buds were not tickled at all by
that strong anise flavored candy.
Licorice is very puzzling to
me, because now it comes in all
sorts of colors. In addition to
black, there is now red, green,
purple and blue. I have not tried
any of the different colors, be-
cause to me it is still licorice.
Being a fan of chocolate, as
most women are, one of my fa-
vorite candy bars has always
been Peppermint Patties. The
dark chocolate coating and the
creamy mint filling can tickle
my taste buds any day.
Of course, another chocolate
candy that we all enjoy is
homemade fudge. My mama
used to cook up a chocolatey
sugary fudge that was deli-
cious. She always had to sit on
the floor and beat the fudge
with a wooden spoon. I believe
that same recipe is still on the
Hersheys cocoa box.
Another type of candy I al-
ways liked was jaw breakers.
You could stick one in your
mouth and let it tickle your
taste buds for a very long time.
As kids we used to see who
could keep their jaw breaker in
their mouth the longest.
Do you remember those big
red paraffin lips you used to be
able to buy? I remember wear-
ing them around looking silly
and then chewing them up like
There were also these orange
whistles that were fun and were
also made out paraffin. Oh
what delightful candies.
Today, I am still like a kid
with my love of candy. My fa-
vorite candy is now sour neon
worms. I know they are some-
thing kids like, but I can eat a
pound bag in one night. It is not
unusual for friends, who know
that I love these beautiful sour
worms, to pick me up a pack-
age of them for a surprise.
One old fashioned candy
that has never tickled my taste
buds is that nasty tasting candy
called horehound. Some peo-
ple absolutely love it, but I
would much prefer to eat my
sour worms.
Personally, I miss the old
candy counters and the differ-
ent selections we used to be
able to buy. Now, that I am in
the mindset of candy, I am re-
calling Boston Baked Beans,
Kits, Laffy Taffy, maple chews,
PayDays, Milky Ways and so
many more.
By the way, do you remem-
ber the old song, Candy
Kisses Wrapped in Paper?
What is your favorite kind of
candy? Do you like sour
worms? Let me know and Ill
give you a Penny for Your

continuation of last weeks article.
Birds of Paulding County
By Homer Price
July 14, 1970
The woodcock will probably be the next of the
larger birds to disappear due to the predators eat-
ing the eggs and young. The wood duck was a
rare nester here for years, but they are more plen-
tiful today due in part to nesting boxes being
placed over water in lakes and ponds. On several
occasions I have seen shells of wood duck eggs
lying on the ground at the base of a tree with a
likely looking cavity higher up in the tree. Rac-
coons probably ate the eggs.
The pied-billed grebe is a rare nesting bird in
the county. On July 4, 1950 I saw an adult feed
a crayfish to two down young swimming in a
pool at the Paulding Sugar Company.
The great blue herons had several colonies in
the county a few years ago, but I am not certain
that we have a single colony today. They once
nested in the Forder Woods; there were two
colonies in two large woods in the Grover Hill
area. One woods of 160 acres has been pretty
well bulldozed while lumbermen were cutting
timber in the other. There were also two colonies
near Defiance County line as well as a little
colony of four of five nests in woods along Fla-
trock Creek east of Payne.
I once climbed 100 feet, 6 inches to look at four
nests in a tall red oak tree near Farmer, Ohio. In
pioneer days probably all of the nests were at least
100 or more feet up in large trees. Black-crowned
night herons nested with the great blues at the
Forder Woods in Crane Township.
A small colony nested in small slender trees
just outside the village limits of Antwerp. Renne
Gillen showed me a colony of five nests in a
small wood near his home in Benton Township
on May 19, 1940.
A pair of yellow-crowned night herons nested
alone in a wood (Snyder) along Flatrock Creek.
My son, William Dean Price, helped take a set
of six fresh eggs from a next May 9, 1943. The
birds built another nest a little later and hatched
at least three young. They nested for two or three
seasons and produced young but were not mo-
lested. These are rare birds in Ohio. They are
southern species.
The little green heron nest in wild plum thick-
ets along the creeks. The eggs can sometimes be
seen through the frail nests. Their eggs can
sometimes be of a handsome bluish or greenish
color as are eggs of all of the herons.
Both the black and mallard ducks have nested
in Paulding County less common than formerly.
I have found a nest of the former and have seen
young of the latter.
There are still quite a number of turkey vul-
tures or buzzards in the county, but I doubt
whether they raise many young to maturity due
to predators. I have seen many nests in hollow
logs, hollow stumps and in cavities of trees
where the entrance would be only a few feet
above the ground.
Red-tailed hawks were locally named hen
hawks. They probably were common in pioneer
days. They were rare nester for years, but were
fairly common in the 1950s and 1960s when
several nests were seen in the county. The nests
are large and very conspicuous as a rule. At pres-
ent they are again rare in the county.
Red-shouldered hawks probably were the
most plentiful hawks in pioneer days; wet woods
are their habitat where snakes, frogs and tadpoles
are abundant. During my collecting period (48
years), I have found to be rare in Paulding
County but fairly common in Allen County, Ind.,
where there were not many wetlands. They will
probably soon disappear in our county.
Marsh hawks were referred to by local resi-
dents as the new hawks. They became common
during the 1930s and became rare by 1950.
Foxes probably ate the eggs and young and some
of the breeding females. This is the only hawk
that builds its nest on the ground in this region.
An occasional pair may still nest here in some of
the larger clover fields. Brushy areas where
sedges (swale grass) and dogbane grew plenti-
fully were the usual nesting areas. Timothy and
clover fields were sometimes used, too. This
species had much to do with the lack of success
of the Hungarian partridges on our area. They
killed the young in the summer and the adults in
winter. The white patch at the base of the tail and
the low sailing flight are characteristic. My first
set of eggs was taken in Benton Township, June
13, 1917.
King rails were common summer birds in the
1920s and 1930s. They built their nests in old tile
pounds and the canals. They were about the size
of the coot (mud hen). I found several nests in
northwest Ohio. They were abundant nesters in
the Lake Erie marshes, but suddenly were gone.
No one seems to know the answer. I have not
seen one since 1948.

1970 report.)

The Paulding Progress &
Weekly Reminder
QUESTION: We have three
children, and we are look-
ing at any advice you can
give us on how we should do
money allowances in our
JIM: Some parents believe
in paying a weekly al-
lowance, and some pay their
kids for individual chores.
Others dont pay anything,
opting instead to give their
children money for purchases
based on their overall attitude
and helpfulness. Theres no
one-size-fits-all approach.
Whatever system you
adopt, its important to re-
member that one of your
major goals is to prepare your
children to live in the real
world the world of work,
taxes, charitable giving and
investments. In that world,
nobody is going to pay them
for making their beds or tak-
ing out the trash. Instead,
theyll be paid for things like
managing a group of employ-
ees, tuning up somebodys
car or selling a pair of shoes
to a demanding customer.
With that in mind, we
would suggest that kids per-
form certain tasks around the
house simply because they
are part of the family. This
might include taking care of
their own rooms, picking up
their toys, helping prepare
meals, washing their own
clothes and, yes, even taking
out the trash.
On the other hand, you
might pay your kids for
chores that demand more
time and energy, contribu-
tions to the life of the house-
hold that go beyond the call
of duty. This might include
mowing the lawn, washing
the car or, in the case of a re-
sponsible teenager, baby-sit-
ting younger siblings for an
entire Saturday afternoon.
Whether its a regular re-
sponsibility or a chore that
earns a paycheck, its im-
portant to communicate
clearly what youre looking
for in terms of the time frame
and the level of quality you
QUESTION: What do you
do when your spouse is un-
willing to compromise or
discuss issues that you dont
agree on in your marriage?
Vice President of Family
Ministries: The key is to dig
down below the surface issue
to what is actually driving
both spouses feelings of hurt.
Instead of getting stuck argu-
ing about a specific issue
(money, sex, kids, work, etc.),
or what each partner is doing
wrong, use the opportunity to
discuss what is really going
on deep inside of you.
What drives hurt and frus-
tration in marriage? Buttons.
Whenever someone says
something that hurts you or
makes you mad, it pushes
your buttons. Common but-
tons include feeling rejected,
abandoned, helpless, inade-
quate, unloved, worthless or
unimportant. All of these but-
tons are ultimately rooted in
fear. When someone pushes
your fear button, you tend to
react with unhealthy words or
actions calculated to motivate
the other person to change
and give you what you want.
For example, if you fear
being a failure, you want to
feel successful. If you fear
being rejected, you desire to
feel accepted. Most of us use
unhealthy reactions to deal
with our fear, and, as a result,
we sabotage our relation-
The key to breaking this
cycle is for you and your
spouse to first identify your
buttons, and then your reac-
tions. Remember, you can ei-
ther talk about the surface
issue, arguing about what the
By Jim Daly
other person does that hurts
or frustrates you, or you can
talk about what is really driv-
ing your hurt and frustration
your buttons.
Dont be afraid to ask an
outside party for help with
this process, if necessary.
Focus on the Family can offer
you a free counseling session
by phone and also put you in
touch with a qualified coun-
selor in your area.

Winning the Battle for a Generation

By Rick Jones
exec. director, Defiance
Area Youth for Christ
We were made to be played.
Author and Pastor David Jeremiah wrote
about the importance of living out our lives to
the fullest by the practice of what drives us the
most, our passion for life.
Fritz Kreisler (1875-1962), the world-fa-
mous violinist, earned a fortune with his con-
certs and compositions, but he generously
gave most of it away. So, when he discovered
an exquisite violin on one of his trips, he was-
nt able to buy it.
Later, having raised enough money to meet
the asking price, he returned to the seller, hoping
to purchase that beautiful instrument. To his
great dismay, it had been sold to a collector.
Kreisler made his way to the new owners
home and offered to buy the violin. The col-
lector said it had become his prized posses-
sion, and he would not sell it. Keenly
disappointed, Kreisler was about to leave
when he had an idea. Could I play the instru-
ment once more before it is consigned to si-
lence? he asked.
Permission was granted and the great virtu-
oso filled the room with such heart-moving
music that the collectors emotions were
deeply stirred. I have no right to keep that to
myself, he exclaimed. Its yours, Mr.
Kreisler. Take it into the world, and let people
hear it.
We have a message to share. Our heavenly
Father created us as exquisite instruments and
the beautiful music we are to make is the good
news of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
We were made to be played. (Turning Point

In The
Its a small world after all
In the last few years, be-
cause of my garden writing,
Ive had the opportunity to
travel to some places Ive
never been. I get to meet
some industry professionals
as well as other backyard gar-
deners and its satisfying to
connect with others who
share this passion for grow-
We all have our small
world stories, those circum-
stances where were hun-
dreds of miles from home and
we run into someone from
our hometown, or we find out
that we have a mutual friend,
though the two of us have
never before heard of one an-
While gardening is a wide-
spread pastime for many, in
the grand scheme of things,
its a pretty small niche, espe-
cially when you consider
those who take it to a level
where it plays a part in how
they make a living.
A few years ago, I traveled
to Dallas, Texas, to attend the
Garden Writers Association
annual symposium. Though
around 500 people usually
gather for the meeting, one of
the associated events I partic-
ipated in was a dinner for
about 35 people.
As I was talking with oth-
ers there, a man noticed from
my name tag that I was from
Ohio and asked me where
specifically I lived. As I
nearly always do, I said,
Northwest Ohio, because
after all, it would be highly
unlikely that someone from
Texas would know where
Haviland was. Im lucky if
most people have even heard
of Fort Wayne.
He responded, But where
in northwest Ohio? I said,
Oh, its a little place that Im
sure youve never heard of,
Haviland. Imagine my shock
when he said, Ive been
there. I was pretty sure he
was joking, but as it turned
out, he had indeed been to
Did YOU know that your
KnockOut roses came in pots
made right here in Paulding
County? Well, neither did I.
Haviland Plastic Products
makes plastic nursery pots
and many companies use
the names of the cheeses,
Wabash Erie Canal, Charloe,
Flat Rock, Black Swamp.
Hmmm...those sounded fa-
The cheesemaker himself
was serving up samples and I
mentioned that these names
were places near where I
lived. It only took a minute
before Brian Schlatter and I
were enmeshed in a delightful
conversation where we dis-
covered we knew many of the
same people and I learned of
his business, Canal Junction
Farmstead Cheese, located in
nearby Junction.
Once again, I was many
miles away from home, and I
didnt even know what was
going on in my own back-
yard. Though were a pretty
mobile society these days,
and our world may have got-
ten larger because of the in-
ternet and social media, its
still small enough to experi-
ence the joy of what I call
divine appointments now
and then.

posed that a basic knowledge of agriculture be included
through existing STEM education for grades K-12.
Second place went to the project Pasture to Plate, advocating
agricultural literacy.

The writings of Gene Stratton-Porter
berlost Swamp that she wrote
One of her best friends was a
lady named Mrs. Snow. When I
was a child, Mrs. Snow was still
alive, a good friend of my
grandmothers and used to give
me candy stored in the Ball jars
surrounding her rocker when
we visited her.
These days, Acres, Inc. and
the Department of Natural Re-
sources is in the process of
restoring over 4,000 acres of
The Limberlost in my home
Theres not a day goes by
that is not inspired at some
point by the writing and phi-
losophy of an author who was
referred to in her time as the
first woman botanist in
This month is a special
birthday celebration for Gene
Stratton-Porter, who was born
150 years ago in a big farm
house beside a little brick
church pastored by her father,
Rev. Mark Stratton, along a
country road in Huntington
County, Ind., north of Lagro.
These days, the little hamlet
is famous for preservation of
a lock that once served the
Wabash and Erie Canal,
which also made its way
through Antwerp to Junction.
Stratton-Porter met the
love of her heart, Charles
Porter, at a chautauqua in
Rome City, Ind. and they
moved to a primitive swamp
area known as The Limber-
lost, an area very similar to
the Black Swamp area of
northwest Ohio.
Uniquely, Porter became so
engrossed in the swamp and
its natural beauty that daily,
she put on heavy clothing,
grabbed an old box camera
she had purchased, and
fought her way through
grasses taller than her to pho-
tograph animal and plant
beauty of the swamp.
She would then return to her
home, a huge log cabin home,
and recorded her finds.
As time progressed, Porter
began to write books, originally
intended for children, but soon
to be enjoyed by all. Master-
pieces such as, Girl of the Lim-
berlost, Freckles, Laddie
and many other gained her na-
tional prominence. Followers of
Porter not only read her writ-
ings, but also purchased cam-
eras and trekked into their own
wilderness to photograph pic-
tures and make notes about their
heartfelt feelings of the creation.
As she aged, so did her inter-
pretation of allegories from na-
ture and their application to the
human life experience. The
Harvester presented the story
of a man who became endeared
to women because of his con-
siderate treatment and under-
standing of their hearts. Keeper
of the Bees provided a keen in-
sight in Gods creation and the
patterns of creation observable
around us.
But perhaps my favorite book
of all, which may not shock
those who know me, is, The
Song of the Cardinal. And the
book is even more endearing to
me because it was written about
cardinals close to where I was
raised, my spiritual heart as it
You see, Gene Stratton-
Porters log house is located two
blocks from where I attended
school in Geneva, Ind. The
Rainbow Bottom where I used
to hike and fish with my father
was the part of the great Lim-
area. In one such area that is al-
ready on its way to recovery, I
walk two miles at a time with
camera tucked in my hand. I
take pictures and post them on
Facebook and write stories
about the restoring land.
A little over a week ago, I had
one of the greatest privileges of
my life. Gene Stratton-Porters
great-granddaughter, Monica
Meehan Berg, from California
and two close generational
cousins visited the area of their
famous ancestor. We went out
for lunch and had a discussion
about the land as I know it now
and as she knew it.
To my surprise, when I
posted that event on Facebook,
one of our well-known leaders
in Paulding County wrote a note
to me and said, I love her writ-
ings, would you do a column
about her in the Progress?
So Kim Sutton, this ones for
you, and thank you for sharing
the love of my life, The Song
of the Cardinal.

The first day of school is fast approaching.
As for my home, this will be the last- first
day of school. Many seniors, including
my daughter, will be experiencing their
final year of high school, as well as filling
out college applications and ap-
plying for scholarships.
Scholarships are an integral
part of the college search
process and can be confusing
and overwhelming. There are many different
scholarships available.
Institutional scholarships are offered by a
specific college or university a student plans
to attend. State and federal scholarships are
based on race, religion, nationality and ability
to pay.
While other scholarships such as govern-
ment-backed, offered by the armed forces, re-
quire military time served.
The largest pool are private scholarships of-
fered by businesses or individuals that want to
educate students in a certain field, those look-
ing to groom their next generation of lead-
ers and/or those seeking to aid
disadvantaged students. With college
costs on the rise, competition can be
Paulding County Area
Foundation administers sev-
eral scholarship funds. In past
years, the foundation has of-
fered scholarships to several students seeking
a higher education. These scholarships are
made possible by generous supporters of our
youth in Paulding County.
Your business or family can also be a sup-
porter. For further information on how a schol-
arship can be set up, please contact the
