PAULDING In what has been billed as the
largest construction project for the Village of
Paulding, the $10 million water plant is up and
running, producing what water and wastewater
superintendent Mike Winners calls the best-tast-
ing water in the area. The new plant went online
June 13.
It was the biggest project I ever tackled and
now that it is competed and knowing the public
is protected with fresh water, it was worth all the
hard work knowing the benefits it will bring to
the village, said Winners.
With the Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) mandating the removal of the old plant
that had been in use for 50 years and the con-
struction of a new plant, the village council ap-
proved to start the process some five years ago.
Construction for the new plant began on April
10, 2012.
The new plant is a microfilter, reverse osmo-
sis process offering the best state-of-the-art
technology in the current water industry.
This is a unique process with few communi-
ties using this process that requires such few
chemicals, commented Winners.
Prior to the new plant going online, the for-
mer process at the old facility was quite crude.
For nearly nine years, Winners instituted a
schedule of flushings in order to prevent the
water from being unacceptable. A series of can-
cer-causing chemical compounds that would
make contact to chlorine would cause tri-
halomethanes, forcing dangerous levels in the
In order to deal with our problems we would
have a weekly flushings when fire hydrants
would be flushed to alleviate the issues. This
went on for nine years. Obviously, the new

From Staff Reports
For countless generations, students
have been used to their homework,
projects and tests being judged on a
scale of A to F. Now, the State of Ohio
has turned the tables on the schools.
Last week, the state issued newly de-
signed School Report Cards that
gives letter grades.
With the new reports, covering the
2012-13 school year, school districts
and individual buildings no longer re-
ceive labels like Excellent or
Continuous Improvement to de-
scribe achievement and performance.
Overall, it appears that the three
local school districts still enjoy high
levels of success, but there are more
than a few Cs, Ds and Fs scattered
throughout the district and building re-
ports. The new grading system means
that its sometimes difficult to com-
pare this years rating against old re-
port cards. School administrators will
be taking a deeper look at how any
why they are lacking in some areas
and how they can meet, and exceed,
the new standards.
This years report cards list letter
grades in four areas: Achievement,
Progress, Gap Closing and Graduation
The first component, Achievement,
measures absolute academic achieve-
ment compared to national standards
of success.
Antwerp Local Schools scored an A
for achieving 23 of 24 indicators and a
B for a performance index of 102.4
percent. That score is down slightly
from last years index of 104.5, which
earned the district an Excellent rating.
Antwerp schools received a pair of

The Paulding School district met 22
of 24 standards set by the State, earn-
ing them an A with 99.5 percent. For
the 2011-12 school year, the district
earned an Excellent with Distinction
rating with a 98.4 percent.
The ODE report card shows PEVS

performance index and an A for indi-
cators met with a 91.7 percent. Gap

28 warnings.
Out of the six citations is-
sued, deputies made two
felony drug arrests. A separate
felony arrest was made during
this blitz on a sex offender that
was noncompliant.
Landers continued, I am
very happy with these statis-
tics. Having no school bus vio-
lations means drivers in
Paulding County are conscious
about our kids going back to
school. My deputies did an ex-
cellent job being alert during
their stops and were able to
take drugs off the street, which
also makes this a safer envi-
ronment for our youths.
The sheriff said the support
of the three school districts and
their superintendents was phe-
I chalk this up as a very
successful day of being proac-
tive in law enforcement. We
were able to interact with the
kids in a positive manner, and
take some drug users off the
street all at the same time.
Look for more days like this to
happen in Paulding County in
the years to come.
PAULDING In an effort
to enhance school bus safety,
the Buckeye State Sheriffs
Association and Paulding
County Sheriff Jason K.
Landers, coordinated a school
bus ride-along day for all
schools in the county on
Friday. Sheriff Landers called
this day Safe Start to School
Traffic Enforcement Blitz.
Sheriff Landers had 12
deputies riding on school
buses and patrolling in
Antwerp, Paulding and Wayne
Trace school districts while
students were in transit to and
from school. Deputies were fo-
cusing their attention on
school bus violations during
that time.
We had zero school bus vi-
olations, Landers reports.
During our blitz while the
kids were in school, deputies
stopped 34 vehicles and issued
Sept. 26.
Jerry, since hes been on
our board, knows the process
of what we go through so
hes very familiar with what
needs to be done, Derck
commented. He will hit the
ground running.

PAULDING Get out your cowboy hat,
scarf and dancing boots and kick up your
heels at the John Paulding Historical Museum
at the sixth annual hog roast and barn dance to
be held on Saturday, Sept. 7.
The weather will be perfect for an old fash-
ioned barn dance complete with a hog roast,
lots of good entertainment and food.
The menu includes pulled pork sandwiches
(plain or barbecued), escalloped potatoes,
baked beans, applesauce and brownies. The
meal is to be served from 5-7 p.m. in Barn #2.
The dance will be from 7 -9 p.m. with Nancy
and Company performing your favorite tunes.
The group includes: Don Bowdle of Edgerton,
Ohio, Bob Ellis and Larry Vogelsong both of
Bryan and Nancy Whitaker of Scott on key-
They will be playing an ecelectic mix of old
country tunes, old rock and roll and blues. It will
be music to inspire you to kick up your heels.
Tickets are currently on sale from any histor-
ical society member or by calling Kim Sutton at
419-399-3667 and will also be available at the
door the evening of the dance. The cost of the
dinner and dance is $10 per person. All pro-

Tickets are limited so it is suggested that you
purchase a ticket prior to the event.
The museum is celebrating their 36th year of

plant will allow us to flush
less, said Winners.
Built in 1965, the old plant
was in total failure, according
to Winners.
We basically had to mas-
sage the old plant in order to
remain compliant. But those
days are behind us. Right now,
the biggest difference in com-
paring the old with the new is
how we use less chemicals to
produce clean water.
Todays program and new
system is not a scientific
process. Basically, the idea is
to jam the water through the
filter system and all the work is
in keeping the machinery clean
and functioning.
Again, prior to the new
plant, the issue with turbidity
levels was ongoing. High lev-
els of algae would make its
way through the ancient sand
filter system, causing high lev-
els of turbidity. Turbidity is the
hazy or cloudy look in the
water caused by the various
algae particles that may be in-
visible to the naked eye, but
make their way through the fil-
ter into the water. With normal
levels being 7, often times
when the algae would break
through the filter, and levels
would increase as high as 35.
Clear up until the new plant
went online, we were in viola-
tion. Today, its a different
story with nothing but clean,
better-tasting, even better-
smelling water with fewer
chemicals leaving the plant,
said village administrator
Harry Wiebe.
For the past nine months,
Winners and the water plant
employees lead operator
Gary Donat, lead maintenance
operator Dan Workman, and
Allan Harpster have been in-
volved in extensive training.
Hundreds of hours training
and learning the computer sys-
tems as well as the overall
plant equipment, said
Mayor Greg White, obvi-
ously proud about the new fa-
cility, feels it was an amazing
experience from beginning to
I think the way the council
worked together and then took
the responsibility to work and
communicate with the EPA
and other officials in order to
see the job completed was
good to see.
Looking ahead to the future,
White went on to say, Our
hope with the new water sys-
tem is to meet the EPA man-
dates in the future and have the
new system give us a competi-
tive edge to future economic
Currently the new plant,
consisting of 15,650 square
feet includes an administrative
wing, water labs, computer
control rooms, conference
room, work areas, record keep-
ing storage facility and rest-
rooms. The plant is producing
400,000 gallons of water per
day with the ability to increase
the amount to 2.2 million in the
Like White, Wiebe said,
The new project gives us a
better quality of water and we
have less stress when it comes
to future demands. The new
plant advances our community
to a higher level and better po-
sitions us when it comes to
economic development.
In order to appreciate and re-
member the former plant and
how it served the community
for so many years, the old let-
tering on the exterior of the

I have not had the opportu-
nity to look over the achieve-
ment data. All I have seen are
the overall grades and obvi-
ously I am extremely pleased
with the high grades and will
need to study the reason for
the lower ones, said Antwerp
superintendent Patricia Ross.
According to Ross, the data
received is always a tool used
to determine progress, howev-
er with the grading system so
new and this being the initial
grades received, its too early
to come up with any kind of
Right now, we are not
even clear on how they got
these grades and we need to
make sure they are correct. In
checking from time to time
with the Ohio State Board of
Education these grades have
changed from time to time,
Ross commented.
All the data received was
based on testing performed
one day in time. Although
Ross is generally pleased with
many of the components of
the grading system, she looks
forward to having her staff
work through the details to de-
termine where the Antwerp
district stands and what needs
to be done to improve.
This is a district situation
and it will take me along with
the principals, curriculum co-
ordinator, teachers, and even
our students to determine our
academic future, said Ross.
She concluded by saying,
This is all going to take time
to sort out and get use to not
only for the district but for the
state of Ohio.
Paulding Exempted Village
School superintendent Bill
Hanak is pleased with the
Paulding districts latest report
card, which shows letter
grades in the areas of achieve-
ment, gap closing, progress
and graduation rates.
Im very proud of the
scores, he said Monday, not-
ing the credit goes to those at
the helm before him. Our
overall score on the report
card was an A. We are cele-
Hanak succeeded Pat Ross
as district superintendent Aug.
Breaking down the results
by building, the high school
received an A for standards
met, and a pair of Bs for per-
formance index and annual
measurable objectives.
The middle schools results
were less than appealing.
While earning a B in perform-
ance index and a C in stan-
dards met, there were two Ds
for overall value-added and
for gifted value-added, plus
three Fs for annual measura-
ble objectives, for lowest 20
percent value-added and for
disabled value-added.
Obviously we know we
have work to do, said Hanak.
We will be working with
other districts to get the best
practices possible at Paulding.
We will figure out our weak-
nesses, how to fix them and
look forward to progress.
Oakwood Elementary split
their grades with three As and
three Bs. The As were for
standards met, overall value-
added and for annual measur-
able objectives. The Bs were
earned for performance index,
disabled value-added and
lowest 20 percent value-
Paulding Elementary per-
formed extremely well, with
five As and a single B. The B
was for performance index.
Hanak said this new form
of report card will take some
adjustments. Explaining there
is a more complex nature with
the new system, he said even
though there are six standards
used to determine district
scores, they do not carry the
same weight in the formula.
We will meet the standards
of the new rubric, he said.
Were still talking about the
same things. Were going to
adjust and do the best we can.
A lot of things are in place for
this now.
Were very proud of the
progress here in Paulding,
Hanak concluded.
This is the third time in my
educational career that ODE
changed the rules on the
school report cards. The other
two times public schools rose
to the challenge once they
learned the rules and I am sure
that will be the case this time,
said Wayne Trace School
District superintendent Steve
We need to address those
who are not passing, with
more instruction and tutoring.
We are going to be hiring
more tutors who will be work-
ing in conjunction with our
He also noted, Nearly 55
percent of our students dis-
trict-wise ranked advanced or
accelerated, which are the two
highest ratings.
Two additional report com-
ponents K-3 Literacy and
Prepared for Success (which
measures whether students
who graduate are prepared for
college or a career) will be
added in 2015. Then, the
grades for measures will be
combined into six broad cate-
gories, called components,
which also will receive a
grade. Finally, the component
grades will be combined into
an overall grade for the school
or district.
This will give schools time
to adjust to the new system
and focus their efforts on
being successful in all areas
that are being measured.

Joe was glad he had the next
day off. Someone forgot to
shut a gate which was a good
lesson for us to check all
gates before going to bed.
Elizabeth tripped and fell
while running after the
horses. She has badly bruised
and scratched knees and
Two mornings after that the
horses popped the hinges on
the gate and were happily eat-
ing in the hayfield. Its like
they are telling us to hurry
with that fence so they can eat
the fresh grass.
This time it was daylight
and we were able to round
them up and head them right
through the gates by the hay-
field. And of course we tried
to bribe Stormy with a scoop
of feed, so he wouldnt be a
troublemaker again.
Our neighbors have been
over helping evenings to get
the holes dug for the new
posts. Saturday we will have
more help in hopes of getting
everything enclosed for the
horse and ponies.
We will have everyone that
helped and their families over
This week my husband Joe
and the boys have been busy
in the evenings trimming the
fence rows. We have the
posts, gates, and fence wire
here to fence in the hay field.
The horses and ponies will be
glad to be back on pasture
We put our pasture field
into beans this year. Eventu-
ally we will want to put it
back into a hay-field. We
were going to put corn in that
field, but the farmer has seed
corn across the road. Field
corn has to be a certain dis-
tance away from seed corn.
The farmer offered to trade us
corn for beans.
We had quite a rude awak-
ening around 2:30 a.m. one
morning. A guy knocked at
our door telling us our horses
and ponies were out on the
road. Everyone got dressed
and grabbed flashlights. The
men in the truck helped by
driving down the road to
shine their headlights for us.
We had them all headed for
the barn when the leader of
the pack, Stormy, the pony,
decided we needed more ex-
ercise. He headed past the
house and, of course, the
other ones followed. We were
able to head off the rest of the
ponies and get them in the
It did look funny seeing the
little Prancer (the miniature
colt) coming down the road
with all the big horses. The
horses went around our
neighbor Joes house and
Elizabeth ran that way to
head them back.
When they headed back,
they ran across the road and
around neighbor Irenes barn
and into the bean field across
the road. We finally had every
way blocked off and Eliza-
beth headed them towards the
barn again. That time was
for a chicken barbecue Satur-
day evening.
Meanwhile the garden is
still producing a lot of cu-
cumbers and tomatoes. We
have been canning more dill
pickles and salsa. I pulled the
red beets last night.
The detasseling is done
now. Verena and Loretta are
still leaving around 3 p.m. to

HAVILAND Early last
week, Quasar Energy Groups
Haviland Energy Plant re-
ceived statewide attention
when officials from Quasar
with headquarters in the Cleve-
land area, met with members of
the Ohio Ag and Natural Re-
sources Committee, including
State Rep. Tony Burkley from
Paulding County.
They were quite impressed
with what they saw, said
Burkley later in the week. It
was a good way to highlight
Paulding County to the mem-
bers of that committee. They
are traveling to different parts
of the state right now to see
various highlights of Ohio agri-
culture, said Burkley, a mem-
ber of the committee.
Burkley said that following
their tour in Haviland, they also
visited Cooper Foods Process-
ing Plant near Van Wert.
Burkley said that 10 out of 15
committee members made the
trip to Paulding County to take
the tour.
We produce energy for
Haviland Plastic Products,
said Quasar plant manager
Bruce Dangler.
Dangler said that three wind-
mills, two of them on the north
side of Ohio 114 where the
Quasar plant is located and the
other located near Haviland
Plastic Products on the south
side of Ohio 114, help intensify
the energy effort.
Quasar Group has partnered
with Haviland Plastic Products
to construct an anaerobic di-
gestion renewable energy facil-
ity. Anaerobic digestion is a
natural process where microor-
ganisms break down biomass
in the absence of oxygen.
Dangler said that the process
was first utilized in Europe
where there are more than
8,000 systems today. In the
United States, it is just emerg-
ing as a key component of the
countrys renewable energy
The Haviland plant produces
116 wet tons per day of organic
waste including: biosolids, re-
gional food waste, FOG (fats,
oils and greases) and manure.
The energy created is sold to
Haviland Plastic Products to
offset the need for traditional
fossil fuels (coal or natural
We get food produce and
wastewater biosolids, a whole
line of products that used to go
into landfills, said Dangler.
We take anything that can rot
except animal carcasses. We
capture methane out of a prod-
uct and put it in an environ-
ment where it breaks down
rapidly in an environment that
is the same as a cows stom-
We maintain the ideal tem-
perature and environment for
the bacteria to work, contin-
ued Dangler. Because our
product changes every day, we
have to know what we put in it
and have it approved by the
laboratory and engineering de-
partment of our company in
Dangler said that as methane
is pulled off, it runs the gener-
ator. The generator then pro-
duces electricity for the grid.
The amount that goes to the
grid is then deducted from the
Haviland Plastic Companys
electric bill. Electricity sent to
the grid from the three wind-
mills is also deducted from
Plastic Products electric bill.
Another component of the
process is that of running parts
of the products through an-
other process for over 40 days
in the company digester. That
product eventually goes to the
Plastic Products lagoon to be
land applied.
That is a valuable resource
for farmers, Dangler said. It
has a value of $240 an acre,
which helps the farmers save
money, too.
We get a tremendous
amount of produce, said Dan-
gler. Sadly, less than half of
the produce that goes into a
grocery store goes out the back
door. This has all made me ap-
preciate the quality of the pro-
duce we buy, how much more
they have to set out than they
Dangler, who tests in the
companys lab, said that the ef-
fluent from their product is
tested regularly by an inde-
pendent laboratory and the re-
sults are sent to the EPA.
We are monitored by the
EPA. Our results are always
extremely successful, said
Information provided by
Quasar Energy Group states
that the most common meth-
ods of disposing of organic
waste today are landfilling and
Both options pollute the air,
soil and water in surrounding
communities without produc-
ing any beneficial products.
The Haviland digester will di-
vert 42,000 wet tons per year
of material from landfills or
wastewater plants while pro-
ducing clean, renewable en-
ergy that can be used as
electricity, alternative motor
vehicle fuel and pipeline qual-
ity natural gas, stated the
Quasar release.

Nature center
is overlooked
Dear Editor,
We have a wonderful
place here in Paulding
County that is being over-
looked by most of the citi-
zens. If you are looking for a
beautiful, serene place to
just sit and think or to walk,
we have it right here in our
county! There are many of
natures creatures enjoying
the area also. The birds sing
and, in season, are busy
building their nests and rais-
ing their young. The turtles
come out to bask in the sun-
light. Squirrels are busy
being squirrels. There are
ducks, geese, skunks, deer,
rabbits, etc. etc. And, pathet-
ically, there are also aban-
doned kitties. There are
beautiful wild flowers. This
wonderful place here in our
county is the Black Swamp
Nature Center. The parking
area is paved and the walk-
ing trails are kept clean. It is
wonderfully quiet and
In order to keep an area
like this enjoyable for every-
one to use, there has to be a
certain amount of improve-
ment and maintenance. The
paved parking lot is one big
effort toward making the
area hospitable. However,
such improvements are not
free and there is a need for
some monetary support from
the citizens in order to pro-
vide desirable improvements
and maintenance. Keeping
the area beautiful and useful
for everyone does not re-
quire an exorbitant amount
of money, but neither is it
free. Someone has to be
cleaning up after vandals all
the time. Trash has to be
picked up because thought-
less people carelessly dis-
card it on the property. It has
been learned that providing
trash barrels is not the solu-
tion, as vandals just scatter
the trash to make a mess.
There used to be a toilet fa-
cility on the property, but
thoughtless people kept it in
a constant state of disgust
and filth.
What a shame that many
of our citizens are not even
aware of what a wonderful
place the Black Swamp Na-
ture Center is to visit, and
even worse, what a shame
(and disgrace to the county)
that some people who do go
there, do so only to vandal-
ize the area. These vandals
never take the time to look
around them at the beauty of
the place. What beautiful
and delightful things these
people are missing.
Go out there and visit the
area. You will find that it is a
wonderful step into nature at
its best. Then, after you have
learned what a wonderful
place it really is, find it in
your heart to donate toward
the maintenance and, im-
provement of this nature pre-
serve located in our county. I
am not aware of how a dona-
tion is made, but Im certain
that you can learn how to
make a contribution by con-
tacting Mr. Mark Holtsberry.

Tom has been a valued mem-

to thank him for his nine years
of service to our company.
We are fortunate that
George Carter will be joining

A Penny For
Your Thoughts....
By: Nancy Whitaker
I remember my grandma
telling me when I was little,
You should love everyone,
but you dont have to like
their actions or their ways.
I like to believe we have all
been in love with somebody
or some thing. One of the
strongest bonds of love is be-
tween a mother and her chil-
dren. I guess I call this,
Motherly love.
One of my truest deepest
loves is for my children and
grandchildren. Even though
my children are all grown up,
I still worry about them, pray
for them and love them with
all my heart.
Then there is love we all
have for our families. I be-
lieve that you can love some-
one like a brother or sister or
a family member even if you
are not related.
In fact, I have several gal
friends who I call my sis-
tahs. My sistahs are girls I
can laugh with, pull pranks
on, call them on the phone if
I need anything and who are
there to share my deepest
thoughts with.
Do you remember the old
Elvis tune, I cant help
falling in love with you? I
believe I fell in love for the
first time in Kindergarten. I
mean, Didnt we all? At
that time, all I wanted to do
was chase the little boys
around and play tag with
them. But then, attitudes do
As I grew into my teenage
years, love and dating took on
a whole new prospective.
Even though we may not
meet the guy or gal of our
dreams then, it doesnt mean
you dont fall in love. When
you do meet the love of your
life, you get that tingly feel-
ing, cant wait to see them
and this person may occupy
your thoughts and dreams.
There is a photo I have
viewed on a social media that
pictures a woman waiting to
meet the right one and she
waits for so long, she turns
into a skeleton. The caption
on the picture is, Still wait-
ing for the right man. But,
like I always say, There is a
lid for every pot.
What is very interesting is
hearing what kids think love
is. Some children were asked
to write down their descrip-
tion of love. Here are a few of
their answers:
1. If falling in love is any-
thing like learning how to
spell, I dont want to do it. It
takes too long. Glenn, age 7
2. No one is sure why it
happens, but I heard it has
something to do with how
you smell. Thats why per-
fume and deodorant are so
popular. Mae, age 9
3. Love is the most impor-
tant thing in the world, but
baseball is pretty good too.
Greg, age 8
4. Once Im done
with kindergarten, Im going
to find me a wife. Tom,
age 5
5. Im in favor of
love as long as it doesnt hap-
pen when Dinosaurs is on tel-
evision. Jill, age 6
6. Im not rushing
into being in love. Im find-
ing fourth grade hard
enough. Regina, age 10
7. Love is foolish, but I
still might try it sometime.
Floyd, age 9
8. Love will find you,
even if you are trying to hide
from it. I been trying to hide
from it since I was 5, but the
girls keep finding me.
Dave, age 8
I think William Shake-
speare summed love up best
by saying, Love all, trust a
few, do wrong to none.
Do you love everyone?
Can you describe love? Have
you found your lid yet? Let
me know and Ill give you a
Penny for Your Thoughts.

Birds of Paulding County
By Homer Price
July 14, 1970
The sora rail is a rare nester in the county.
Eggs have been taken in the Wabash Canal. A
set of four end blown eggs were taken at the
button bush pool near Flatrock Creek in 1910.
The upland plover (really a sandpiper) was
fairly common from 1920 to 1940. They
nested in the larger pastures and clover fields
or even oat fields. The larger pastures are
being tilled new and the clover field acreage
is smaller today. Their long drawn out notes,
creee-ee-ee-eee, while high in the air sounded
weird. Although they were about as large as a
robin, they laid four eggs as large as eggs of
the crow. They are rare birds today. My father,
W. D. Price, found the first nest I have seen,
May 29, 1936. The nest was on the ground in
an Alsace clover field. The sitting bird was
dragging from the nest by the cutter bar of a
Killdeers are often flushed along the sides
of stone roads and probably nest along the
edges of roads more than they do in fields. The
road graders probably destroy many eggs.
Back when horse-drawn single row corn cul-
tivators were used, the farmers would try to
save the eggs from destruction whenever pos-
sible. Mechanized farming makes this impos-
sible today. This applies also to nests of vesper
sparrows and prairie horned larks.
Mourning doves seem to be increasing in
numbers. At one time they nested in apple or-
chards and small trees in the woods. Many
nest on the ground now in clover and bean
fields where they have a better chance to raise
their young. Hunters who shoot these birds for
sport have a peculiar sense of sportsmanship.
We still have some great horned owls in
Paulding County. During the 1820s and later,
all of them probably laid their eggs in the cav-
ities of very large trees. It seems likely that
they used huge sycamores as the bark of these
trees is sleek and difficult for raccoons to
climb. The pioneers sometimes felled the large
trees in order to destroy eggs or young. I sup-
pose very few people ever climbed trees then
to take eggs or young as this would have been
a hazardous undertaking.
For years they have used large cavities, if
available, but if not, they used old hawk, crow
and squirrel nests or even the stub of a large
elm tree that has broken off after dying from
the effects of the Dutch elm disease.
I have climbed to cavity nests in February
and found the two or three eggs surrounded by
snow and ice. Although this would be several
inches from the eggs, first eggs were collected
February 20, 1916 from an old crow nest in
the Ryel Woods in Benton Township.
All of the barred owl nests that I have found
have been in cavities of trees. It seems likely
today that these cavities will be occupied by
raccoons making it necessary for them to use
old crow or hawk nests as the horned owls do,
or disappear.
The short-eared owl is a rare nester here.
They nest on the ground in sedgy areas or in
clover fields. They are sometimes rather com-
mon in the fall or winter. Whether these are
birds in migration or have been bred in the
county, we do not know. My collection con-
tains one set of six eggs taken in the county.
Long-eared owls nested here in small num-
ber in the 1920s and 1930s. They seem never
to use a cavity for nesting, but instead an old
hawk or crow nest. I have not seen one for
years. My collection contains only three eggs
taken in the county.
Of barn owls, several sets have been taken.
A pair nested unsuccessfully in the cyclone
of the alfalfa mill at Payne for several years.
A set of seven abandoned eggs was so heavily
incubated that they could not be preserved,
date May 26, 1940.
The red-headed, hairy, downy and flicker
woodpeckers have varied from scarce to com-
mon over the years. The red-bellied was rare
for years but during the 1950s I saw several
excavating in dead trees in April and May.
Starlings took over some nests but others were
successful. The many dead elm stubs have
contributed to the increase in numbers of all
of the woodpeckers.
Regarding the flycatcher family, the phoebe
has declined, the Acadian lacks proper habitat,
namely low wet woods while the alder proba-
bly has increased in numbers. The kingbirds
seem less common to me while the crested is
about as common as ever. The wood pewee
also seems to be less common.
The crested flycatcher usually placed a
snake skin in its nest, which was built in a
woodpecker excavation.

1970 report.)

Walk a mile in my shoes
customer had railed her and
addressed her in a mean tone
of voice about some food. Of
course, as a parent, and
knowing the temperament of
the individual, I temporarily
considered handing back a
conversation rebuking the
person for their attitude to-
wards our daughter, but in the
end, wisdom took over and I
thought it was best to let it go.
After all, unfortunately,
sometimes we have to suck it
up and allow or children to
learn lifes lessons.
The song, Walk a Mile in
my Shoes, comes to my
mind when I think of working
in a fast food restaurant. The
shouts of people demanding
their orders at break-neck
speed, discovering that an in-
gredient for one of the sand-
wiches is missing and
pressure of fellow employees
all shouting orders at the
same time would do me in
within minutes.
I admire those who are
willing to work for minimum
wages, with very few tips and
rewards coming forth, in the
hectic atmosphere of fast
I cant imagine what its
like to walk in the shoes of a
waitress, but both of my
daughters used to fill me in
when they came home from
an evenings work at a nearby
This one lady is so nice,
she always asks us how we
are doing and seems like she
really cares about us.
Theres this couple that
comes in and you can never
make them happy, never!
They are always going to find
something wrong with their
place setting, food and the
way that I serve them. My
heart droops every time they
walk in.
Theres this man whose
daughters used to waitress.
He is always considerate and
leaves a good tip. You can tell
he understands our needs; it is
always such a pleasure for
him to come in.
The psychology of wait-
ressing must require a lot of
flex, overlooking and under-
standing. When our daughters
worked at a little restaurant
close to Coldwater Lake
when we lived in Michigan,
we would never know what
mood we were going to get
when they came through the
door after several hours of
waiting on people and work-
ing on their feet.
I can remember one night
when one of the girls bolted
through the door and said that
someone had left a sizable tip
and told her to use it for the
purchase of some school
Another night, one of them
came home in tears because a
food life.
I recall some time ago
when Joyce and I were in a
restaurant for an evening
meal, I asked the waitress
how she was doing. She
stopped in her tracks, even
got a bit moist-eyed and said,
Why, thank you for asking.
People rarely ask us that. It
feels really good to hear that.
Quite often we forget that
waitresses are human beings,
entitled to make occasional
errors, who might have come
to work from a broken home,
with worries about grandma
in the hospital or concerns
about a relationship.
To step into a world where
one is required prompt, accu-
rate and cheerful service
when the real world might be
handing reason to feel the op-
posite does take a bit of ad-
mirable discipline at times.
One thing I respectfully un-
derstand about waitressing;
there is probably a need there.
Most people dont submit
themselves to an atmosphere
of unpredictability, one that is
hard on self-esteem at times,
just to get away from family
and friends that are loved.
It usually indicates the
need for funds for lifes need
and a willingness to do any-
thing in order to earn some
With that in mind, I find
myself attempting to be cour-
teous, generous and even in a
position to show a bit of inter-
est in one who is making an
effort to show me kindness
and good service in spite of
what life might be like in her

After the council meeting,
Henke commented that he and
council are still working on
the process of raising water
rates, but nothing will be de-
cided until there has been fur-
ther discussion and more

sion, Henke agreed that this
was a mandate from the state

Convoy, Van Wert, Delphos, Gomer, Cairo, Beaverdam, New
Stark, Williamstown, Ada, Dola, Patterson, Forest, Lima and Elida.

In The
Wolves in sheeps clothing
As we drive along our rural
Paulding County roads, the
predominate color of the
landscape in August is green.
Its considerably greener this
year than in past years and
certainly greener than 2012,
but there are little pops of
color here and there.
White is a color too and
theres an abundance of
Queen Annes lace, often-
times interspersed with laven-
der chicory. The goldenrod is
beginning to bloom, as is the
deep purple ironweed (aptly
named, if youve ever tried to
pick some barehanded for a
In the ditches, you can find
the pink blooms of both com-
mon and swamp milkweed,
although much of that is
going to seed by now. But
theres a deeper pink, a more
vibrant, almost neon pink that
can be seen in various spots
around the county.
The floral spires of nonna-
tive purple loosestrife
(Lythrum salicaria) rise out of
the ditch to heights that can
reach seven feet, although
Ive never seen any that tall.
Most plants are around three
to four feet.
Its a beautiful plant, but a
problematic one. Its on the
invasive species list in Ohio
and other states and its ille-
gal to sell it here. Purple
loosestrife, when left to its
own devices, can clog water-
ways and choke out native
plants that are more benefi-
cial to wildlife. Perhaps not as
invasive as kudzu in the
south, its still a thug and has
a negative impact on our local
There are other cultivars,
their business while perched.
Garlic mustard generally
grows in semi-shaded areas
of woods, but can also be
found in areas of full sun. It
doesnt take long for the plant
to become established and
choke out native wildflowers
such as trillium, bloodroot,
Dutchmans breeches, spring
beauty, wild ginger and he-
patica. It steals nutrients from
these plants as well as intro-
ducing phytotoxins into the
soil, which inhibits growth of
other plants in the area.
Though garlic mustard
isnt a plant that most people
would even want growing in
their gardens, because it isnt
that attractive, its still a
major player in the invasives
Purple loosestrife, on the
other hand, is quite attractive
and you might be tempted to
relocate the ditch plants to
your garden. Its okay to relo-
cate them; just make sure its
to a dumpster.

such as L. virgatum, that are
sold in some nurseries, that
by themselves are not inva-
sive. However, the well-be-
haved cultivars can
cross-pollinate with the inva-
sive species and produce seed
that leads to more invasive
plants. One L. salicaria plant
can produce over 100,000
seeds. For this reason, it is not
recommended to purchase
and plant even the hybrids.
To eliminate the plant, it
should be removed by pulling
or digging and mowing it
down is not recommended, as
this actually speeds up the
spread of it. There are chem-
ical means for removing large
colonies, but individual
plants should be treated,
rather than widespread spray-
ing which exposes the seed
field for increased germina-

QUESTION: As first-time
parents, weve been over-
whelmed by all the advice
weve received from people.
Though they are well-
meaning, I feel like telling
them to mind their own
business. Is that wrong?
JIM: It wasnt long ago
that I was asking this same
question. What I eventually
learned is that most veteran
parents who share their hard-
won wisdom are simply try-
ing to help.
Theyve already raised
their own kids, and dont see
why you shouldnt benefit
from the invaluable knowl-
edge theyve acquired
through trial and error. So try
to be gracious when they
offer their tips and helpful
hints. For the most part,
theyre acting out of genuine
concern and are on your side.
Of course, there are some
whose motives are different,
individuals who take pleasure
in boosting their own sense of
superiority by pointing out
your mistakes and telling you
the right way to parent your
child. Dealing with these
folks is frustrating.
When responding to them,
you might try saying some-
thing like this, Thank you so
much for your helpful advice.
We will certainly consider it.
This phrase can be particu-
larly useful if the unwanted
counsel is coming from a
close relative such as a parent
or an in-law. Remember to
say it with a smile.
Another technique is to
thank them and let them
know that you are basing
your parenting methods on
your moral values, along with
the advice of respected child-
development experts. One
place to find that expert ad-
vice is Focus on the Familys

and Child Care, an extensive

toxicity of the entertain-

of it. What should I do?
director of Plugged In: The
answer to this increasingly

not imposing isolation. By
taking this approach, youll
be teaching your kids to think
for themselves and equipping
them to make smart choices

Establish guidelines for
your family. Although enter-
tainment decisions can fall
into a bit of a gray area, estab-

making media decisions. Our
family did so, not because we
needed more rules, but be-
cause we didnt want to leave
the concept of making wise
choices to mere chance.

Those set to be honored are:
The 1957 Paulding High
School football team was the
first undefeated/untied team in
school history, as they posted
an 8-0 record. This 8-0 record
was a part of a 16 game win-
ning streak that spanned two
seasons. Not only did this
football team finish without a
blemish on their record, but
they also shut out seven of the
eight opponents that they
faced, only giving up 6 points
to Rockford, giving up less
than one point per game. They
outscored their opponents by
an average of 26 points per
This team consisted of three
all state performers in John
Henry Kauser, Jim Paulus and
George Morones and also has
Paulding High School Ath-
letic Hall of Fame members
in Mike Goings, Michael
Connor, John Henry Kauser
and Jerry Delong. Some of
the members of this team
went on to be a part of the
1960 Class A State Cham-
pionship track team as well.
The 1960 Paulding High
School Boys track team is the
only state championship team
in Paulding High School his-
tory. The team had a very suc-
cessful season, as they also
won championships at the
Tiffin Relays, Bryan Relays
and Paulding Relays and won
the Northwest Buckeye
League championship. They
were runners-up at the North-
western Ohio District track
meet before going on to win
the Class A State Champi-
Coach Paul Nestor said re-
garding this squad, Some-
times you wait a lifetime for
a big winner. Ive been here
only four weeks and the area
comes up with a state cham-
pionship with Paulding
Highs well-knit track squad.
Several members of the
team went on to become in-
ducted individually into the
Paulding High School Ath-
letic Hall of Fame. Those
members include Mike Go-
ings and Michael Connor.
The 1988 Paulding High
School football team is the
last team to finish undefeated,
going 10-0. The upperclass-
men on this team were a part
of an 18-2 record that spanned
over the 1987 and 1988 sea-
The 1988 team dominated
on both sides of the ball as
they were the leading offen-
sive and defensive team in the
Northwest Conference, and
outscored their opponents by
34 points per game. This team
finished as the 12th ranked
team in the Division III by the
Associated Press, with the
highlight of the season being
putting an end to Delphos Jef-
fersons 49-game regular sea-
son winning streak with a
17-0 shutout victory.
The Panthers touted many
players who were honored as
first team all conference
members (eight), with Max
Eifrid and Rob Kesler earning
First Team all state honors.
Max Eifrid was also honored
as the AP Linemen of the Year
and was also a finalist for the
prestigious Ohio Mr. Foot-
ball award. Team members

MAC Gym fall sport
scheduling begins
ANTWERP The new school
year brings new sports opportu-
nities at the MAC Gym. This fall
there will be basketball opportu-
nities for boys and girls players,
girls volleyball and cheerleading.
The season begins with na-
tionally renowned Tom Norland
and his Swish 22 basketball
shooting clinic. Norland will be
flying in from a west coast clinic
before heading back to Canton,
Ohio. One day shooting sessions
will be offered on Sept. 5-6.
Saturday morning will bring
teams for both sixth grade and
under and a new fourth grade and
under team volleyball league.
Ten teams have already signed
up with over a week left before
the deadline and scheduling be-
The basketball courts will be
full this fall as we reach out to
every school age child. Boys and
girls will have the opportunity to
participate in five different
leagues: grades K-2, grades 3-4,
grades 5-6, grades 7-8 grade and
varsity 9-12 grade. The leagues
are primarily set up for student
athletes that are not already par-
ticipating in a fall school sport.
The leagues allow players to
keep a ball in their hand to work
on fundamentals while working
against some viable opponents.
All junior high and high school
teams will be divided up per
OHSAA sport regulations, with
no more than two athletes from
any school, on the same team.
Sundays bring a full day of
events to the gym. Individual
signups are being accepted for
junior high girls, junior high
boys, high school girls and high
school boys teams. All the
leagues will run for six weeks,
including league ending tourna-
ments. This will give the players
a couple weeks off before winter
seasons officially begin.
Monday evenings, the gym
will play host to 3-4 grade and 5-
6 grade girls basketball. Tuesday
will be the same age groups for
the boys.
Wednesday evening events are
through gym partner K&S Tum-
Thursday evening is the only
evening with coaching as they
bring boys teams to play. Sixth
grade and under teams from the
area have signed up to participate
in the league. Thursday will also
play host to the new boys and
girls K-2 league. The new 8-foot
rims and smaller 27.5 basket-
balls, purchased with an Pauld-
ing County Area Foundation
grant, will be put to use for the
first time.
Saturday, Oct. 19 and 26 will
bring volleyball tournaments to
the MAC. A junior girls tourna-
ment will be sponsored by the
Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church on
Oct. 19. Eight teams will battle
for the second annual crown.
Oct. 26 brings a new tourna-
ment a sixth grade and under
pumpkin smash volleyball
tournament will be held.
The fall season events will
conclude with a preseason boys
basketball tournament Nov. 2, a
cheerleading competition Nov. 9,
and boys and girls Black Fri-
day mini-tournaments on Fri-
day, Nov. 29.
All event information, entry
forms, and rules can be found at
www.macgymohio.com or by
calling 419-506-0108.

Payne approves Garmyn for
permanent EMS assistant
PAYNE The contract be-
tween the Village of Payne
and the Benton and Harrison
township fire departments
continues to drag on while the
council heard from EMS as-
sistant coordinator Joe
Garmyn about equipment up-
grades during the regular bi-
monthly meeting of the Payne
Council on Monday.
Benton Township Trustee
Joe Thome asked council
members, Where are we at
on the contract? Here it is the
end of August and we still
have no signed contract.
Mayor Terry Smith re-
sponded by telling Thome,
Last Friday we received a let-
ter from our lawyer, Jim Spon-
sellor, detailing three areas of
the contract that needs correct
Why dont you take the let-
ter to your attorney, Joe
Burkard, and have him look it
over and then get with Spon-
sellor and settle this? Once the
wording is corrected we can
sign it and get on with it, said
Thome left the meeting with
the Sponsellor letter and plans
to meet with Burkard on Tues-
EMS assistant co-coordina-
tor Joe Garmyn reported that
his department made an initial
purchase of iPads, and soft-
ware that will enable them to
proceed with electronic record
charting. The purchase totaled
$2,511 from budgeted funds.
With $6,800 allowed for
equipment purchases Garmyn
asked for and received permis-
sion to purchase the second
phase of equipment to include
an all in one computer for ap-
proximately $1,000.
Garmyn also informed
members about the proper
storage of records. Because
Payne is a business associate
to the EMS department,
records that are a part of the
EMS are not to be kept at the
village office.
According to Garmyn,
records must be kept in a se-
cure site and will be trans-
ferred to the firehouse in the
near future. Garmyn will con-
tinue to work with the village
in order to stay compliant with
EMS matters and its relation-
ship to the village.
On its third reading, council
unanimously passed a resolu-
tion authorizing termination of
the Paulding County Emer-
gency Management Agency
agreement dated Nov. 8, 1989.
A resolution authorizing the
village to participate in a pro-

The first reading was heard
of an ordinance permitting the
use of golf carts and all pur-

Council suspended the rules
and unanimously approved an

lish a fire equipment fund.
They also suspended the
rules for a resolution to amend

the various appropriations.
