Paulding County Relay For Life June 3-4

Relay brings the community together

Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING Relay For Life, an
American Cancer Society fundraiser
that brings community, family, and special friends together for part of a weekend, will again converge at the Paulding
County Fairgrounds this Friday and Saturday. From 6 p.m. on Friday to noon on
Saturday, 18 hours of reflection, support
and encouragement will be experienced.
This year, the national theme is Paint
Your World Purple while the local
theme is Relay Goes Hollywood ...
Lights, Camera, Cure.
Relay For Life is a time to honor cancer survivors, remembering loved ones,
and to fight cancer one step at a time.
Paulding County has raised more than
$1 million over the past 23 years to aid
in the research for a cure of cancer.
On Friday, opening ceremonies will
include honor laps, introductions, and
activities for survivors, caregivers and
participants who will walk the track.
There will be a special flag raising by
Paulding VFW and Boy Scouts followed by the National Anthem by the
Wayne Trace boys ensemble.

Restore you cars


Every year, we stress how this is a

public event. We certainly want the
community to come and participate in
as much of the relay as possible. However, this year we want all the survivors
to bring their families and caregivers,
said chairman Jillene McMichael.
McMichael is entering her 15th year
working as one of
its key leaders with
the Relay For Life.
She is a trainer and
active leader that
allows her to travel
all over the country
with opportunity
to attend events
like this weekends
relay in Paulding.
Ive been to many such events and
this one right here in Paulding County
is truly a community event. Its like no
other and its exciting to be a part of it
each year, McMichael said.

items will be on display in the extension

building where you can check them out
and make a generous bid.
Registration for the Road to Recovery Race will begin at 6:30 p.m. with
the race starting at 7 p.m. The race involves two people
using wheelbarrows to race a full
lap around the track
taking turns carrying each other and
doing various tasks
that caregivers do
every day. The race
is a fun event and
at the same time it
demonstrates how
much caregivers
care while supporting loved ones.
Teams need to provide their own wheelbarrows.
At 8 p.m. women will be dressed like
men and vice versa and will be collecting tips around the track. The team with
the most money will be declared winners.
Prior to the luminaria ceremonies,

those in attendance will have the opportunity to test the first-ever Relay For Life
obstacle course. At 9 p.m., Obstacles,
Racks and Rhinestones will be open to
test individuals speed and agility on the
obstacle course.

of the evening will be the luminaria ceremony to honor loved ones and to remember those who have died. At 9:55
p.m., everyone is encouraged to make
their way to the north end of the track.
At that time, Pastor Michael Schneider

coming in and the announcement of funds
raised will happen on
The cost to sponsor
an entire flight averages anywhere from
$65,000 to $70,000.
We do feel confident our initial goal of $70,000 will be met
or exceeded, said Erika Willitzer, PPEC
marketing and economic development manager. Its a large amount of funds to raise,
but PPEC employees felt it necessary to raise
funds for such a worthy cause.
In addition, after discovering there were
over 400 veterans on a waiting list to take
the flight, the PPEC employees were all in


to take on the big task of raising the funds,

added Willitzer.
Currently, the Northeast Indiana Honor
Flight serves northwest Ohio, since the Toledo Chapter closed in 2014. Honor Fligh

Sprow, 21, of Paulding, walked
into the loving arms with her
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on
Sunday morning, May 29.
Paige was
born on Dec.
11, 1994
in Tampa,
Fla. to Patty
Sprow of
Paulding and
Sean McGarrigle of
Kansas City,
Kansas. She
was a 2014
graduate of Paulding High School.
She is survived by her mother,
Patty Sprow of Paulding; father
Sean McGarrigle of Kansas City;
grandparents, Carol Hale of Paulding and Brenda and Don McGarrigle of Kansas City; uncle, Rick
(Connie) Sprow of Edgerton; aunt,
Cheryl (James) Stahl of Oakwood;
and her adopted Zachrich family.
Paige was preceded in death
by her father figure Thomas A.
Zac Zachrich; aunt, Robin
Ray Merriman; grandfather,
Donald Ray Sprow; and stepgrandfather, J.D. Hale.
Paige battled AVM (Arteriovenous malformation) and hydrocephalus from a very early
age of 6-1/2, though she never
allowed it to dampen her loving
spirit and kindness to all. She was
just a lovely person who was interested in church, family and
friends. She brought us a lot of
happiness. Paige had never met a
stranger. She was fighting so hard
to be here with us. Her courage,
her fight, her passion for life is
everything we try to live by. She
showed us how to be strong and
face your challenges. Last week
she wrote, God has a plan for
me; she was still believing and
trusting God. That was the one
thing that never changed her
faith. She cherished her many
travels, father/daughter dances
and shared adventures with Zac,
and fondly remembered her trip
to Disney World with the help
of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Though Paiges life was short in
years, she lived her years to the
Paiges family would like to
thank Pastor Jeremy Thompson,
the congregation of the Paulding
Church of the Nazarene, family,
friends, all communities, and the
staff and students of Paulding High
School for their many kindnesses
and prayers throughout her life.

We Know ag. We Love ag.

On Lovinas birthday, another

summer wedding gets published
It is 6:42 a.m. and our three
youngest just left with the bus
for another day at school. They
are counting the days left of this
term. Eight and one-half days
left! I still have a hard time getting used to the bus coming this
early. All the years our children
went to school, the bus was never here until 7 a.m. or a little after. Changes are hard to get used
to in our lives!
Talking about changes in life.
Our family will have another
change and Ill probably have
the hardest time with it. On the
other hand, Im excited and happy for daughter Susan, 20, and
her special friend, Mose. They
were published in church this
past Sunday to announce their
wedding date. They picked Friday, Aug. 5, for their special day.
Mose and Susan have been
dating for four years and we
have no doubt in our minds that
he will be a good husband to
our daughter. He seems like my
own son and I hope that never
changes. It is so much easier on
a couple if both families accept
the life partner of their family
member. May God bless their
marriage and grant them many
happy, healthy years together!
With the wedding coming up
I see busy months ahead! We
will be more organized than
with Elizabeth and Timothys
wedding. We were in the process of putting up a pole barn
last year, which delayed all the
other work.
Susans dress for the wedding
is mostly finished. The rest of
ours are cut out, but still waiting
to be sewn. That is what I plan to
do the next few days.
I feel better to sew now since
our whole garden was planted
Saturday. We are enjoying radishes and green onions from the
early things we planted. Mose
and his brother Freeman assisted
us with our work on Saturday.
The pole barn was organized
and cleaned up. When it gets
closer to the wedding, we want
to wash down the walls and
ceilings on both sides of the
pole barn. We will set tables in
both sides and open the garage
door thats in the middle.
Mose and daughters Susan
and Verena planted flowers in
my flower beds. We put out 68
tomato plants. With everyones
help, the garden was quickly
filled. Now its up to our good
Lord to provide sunshine and
rain to make things grow. Some
years we have a bountiful crop
and others not much, but we

want to take what He sends.

On Sunday, May 22, I also
turned another year older. We
had communion services at sister Emma and Jacobs house.
After the services were over,
everyone sang Happy Birthday to me and sister Emma
brought out a cake with candles.
Luckily she only had a four and
five for candles. I dont know if
I could have handled blowing
out 45 candles.
Emma sent the cake home
with me. We had it for supper
with our children. The children went after pizza in town
and they grilled hot wings so I
wouldnt have to cook on my
birthday. We had a nice evening
On Thursday, we traveled to
Berne, Ind., to brother Amos
and Nancys house for the wedding of their daughter Lovina
and Benjamin. They had a very
nice day. On the menu were
fried chicken, mashed potatoes,
gravy, noodles, dressing, mixed
vegetables, lettuce salad, sliced
cheese, homemade bread, butter and rhubarb jam. Also pies

(rhubarb, blueberry, cherry and

pecan), tapioca pudding, angel
food cake, fruit cocktail dessert,
and of course, nothings were
on all the tables. Sausage was
added in the evening. It was
nice to see a lot of family again.
On a sadder note; Friday,
May 20, brought memories of
the passing of my dear father,
Ben Coblentz, 16 years ago.
How nice it would be to have
my parents at all their grandchildrens weddings. Gods
ways are not our ways so we
need to accept what He sends to
I must get busy. I love sewing, but its different if you have
a deadline to get things done. It
kind of takes away the enjoyment, but we will take one day
at a time. Gods blessings!

Cats are doing

a great service
Dear Editor,
We applaud Wanda Rohlf,
David andPatsy Glick, and
Reda and Wendall Adams
for their recent letter to the
Paulding Progress regarding the care and feedingof
thecats at thefairgrounds. If
anyone should be prosecuted,
it should be those who dump
the cats in the first place.
Isnt it possible that those
cats do a great job of exterminating mice and other rodents
at the fairgrounds?
The Black Plague in medieval Europe came about because cats were believed to be
evil and exterminated, leaving
the rat population to multiply
freely and in turn carry the
fleas that carried the Bubonic
Plague. Half of the human
population subsequentlydied.
The cats are actually doing a
great service.
To whomever posted that
notice: Please, please reconsider and take it down!

Parents thankful
for Kindergarten
Young 5s class

Dear Editor,
Oh, what changes a year
can bring when youre learning and having fun! These
words were spoken by our
daughter, Addilyn, at her YK
end-of-the-year program,
and describe what the Young
5s program did for her. She
learned A LOT, met new
friends, and had fun while
doing so.
A year ago, we were faced

with the decision to send

Addilyn to developmental
preschool at PEVS for a
second year or open enroll
to Wayne Trace and take
advantage of the Young 5s
Transitional Kindergarten
Program at Payne Elementary. The decision wasnt easy
there was more to it than
her riding a bus to and from
school every day. Could she
withstand being in school all
day, every day? We had to set
up new, after-school childcare
for her, and rearrange our
work schedules so we could
transport her to school every
day, since we do not reside in
the WT school district. This
opportunity was also possible
because the classroom was
not full. They do take children
who reside within the WT
district first.
In the fall, Addilyn started
out the school year being able
to identify approximately 10
letters, and very few numbers.
Writing these letters and numbers was even more difficult.
She could write her name, but
it was nothing spectacular.
Addilyns progress has been
remarkable, and the credit
goes to Mrs. Rachel Hire, the
Young 5s Transitional Kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Hire
does AMAZING work with
these little people!
As the year progressed,
Addilyn was able to identify
all of the letters, numbers,
and shapes; her writing began
to improve, and she began
to sound out and read sight
words. She is now able to
sound some words out, identify sight words, spell simple
words, and do simple math.
This kindergarten program
not only focuses on the main
developmental skills such as
letter and number recognition/
writing, but it also incorporates
reading, math, science, art,
gym, music and so much more.
Of course, there has to be
carry-over in the home, too,
to strengthen these skills. We
have spent a lot of time reinforcing what was being taught
in the classroom.
We are so grateful that
Addilyn could partake in this
wonderful opportunity. We
have no doubt that she will be
ready for traditional kindergarten in the fall. The staff at
Payne Elementary made this
year of change a great one for
us THANK YOU all for the
year of education, guidance
and patience.
If youre interested in
learning more about this great
opportunity, call Payne Elementary at 419-263-2415.

Weve all experienced the

beginning of a day that appears to be full of challenges.
We leave for work to find a flat
tire on our car, we cant find
our car keys, we realize we
just missed an important appointment; all such incidents
seemingly serve as indicators
that the day ahead might have
been better spent in the shelter
of home without attempting to
face the outside world.
A visit to an area drivethrough restaurant a few days
ago fit a similar category better known as, I just cant believe it.
It all started when I was
forced to wait for what seemed
like an uncalled for length
of time behind a car placing
an order in the drive-through
line. Whatever the situation
was with the vehicle in front
of me, things didnt speed up
at the pay window or the pickup window.
I placed my order, paid for
my food and so far, all was
well. I was just minutes, at
least I thought, from retrieving my breakfast sandwich,
oatmeal cookie and coffee.
But then things began to
change. For over 10 minutes I
waited while my food was being assembled. After a seemingly endless wait, I was told
the problem was baking my

oatmeal cookie but it would

soon be finished.
I continued to wait while
cars lined up behind me. Paranoia set in as I just knew that
everyone waiting behind me
was saying, What is it with
that guy up there? Just how
much can one man order?

Finally, the individual
working in the pick-up window came to me and said,
Your cookie will be ready in
30 seconds, would you please
pull into the parking space
over there and we will bring it
to you?
Youve got to be kidding
me, I thought. I waited 10
minutes at the pick-up window to be told I would need

to move along and wait in a

specified parking area because
my cookie was 30 seconds
But the drama wasnt over.
By now I decided I was
going to time the moments
and see how long 30 seconds
would actually stretch into. So
I waited five minutes, 10 minutes and finally, 14 minutes
later, an employee came to the
car with a small box and said,
There sir, there is your fresh
hot cookie.
This was good, I now had
my coffee, which I picked up
at the window and the cookie
which was finally delivered to
me, but what about my breakfast sandwich?
Oh, Im sorry, said the
employee. No one told me
you had a breakfast sandwich.
So the waiting cycle began
again until the smiling employee returned with my sandwich.
Sorry for the wait, sir, have
a good day, was the comment, and we were all finally
on our way.
The cookie was hot and
good, the sandwich was good,
the coffee was nearly gone
and 31 minutes later I was off

Only the hands know

I always thought that being
left-handed was an inherited
trait. My mama was left-handed and I have two daughters
who are left-handed. After
thinking about lefties I was
surprised to find out that only
10-12 percent of the people
on earth are left-handed. Plus,
women are more prone to being left-handed than men.
There have been times
left-handedness was looked
upon as meaning many different things.
At one time, it was believed
that it meant a mark of the
devil, a nasty habit, a sign of
rebellion and criminal activity and it was believed that
left-handed people were prone
to die nine years before a rightpawed.The Oxford English
Dictionary defines left-handed
as meaning crippled, defective, awkward, clumsy, inept,
characterized by underhanded
dealings, ambiguous, doubtful, questionable, ill-omened,
inauspicious, and illegitimate.
(Of course, we know better.)
On the other hand (no pun
intended), being a leftie is also
a trait that indicates creativity
and musical abilities.
Tests conducted found that
there were more left-handed
people with IQs over 140 than
right-handed people. Famous
left-handed scholars like Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton,
Charles Darwin and Benjamin
So, whatever anyone says
negative about left-handed
people, simply dont know
their right hand from their left.
It has also been reported
that if a woman gives birth

for your Thoughts

By Nancy Whitaker

after age 40 it is 128 percent

more likely they will deliver a
leftie. Where does this information come from? I was sure
under age 40 when I had my
babies, and I had two lefties,
so a mothers age cant really
have anything to do with this.
What are your thoughts?
I believe that years ago,
it was more difficult to live
in a right-handed world. Today, leftie people are asking
for left-handed tools to make
tasks easier.
People who are left-handed have shared stories about
items exclusively made for the
right-handed person. One gentleman said that he had a difficult time with tools. It seemed
as if every tool was meant to
be used by a right paw. One
day, he did go shopping and
found a tape measure made for
lefties. Oh the joy! He did not
ever have to look at the numbers upside down again.
Pruning bushes was also another task that was difficult to
do with a normal tool. One
day he discovered a pruner

tool made for the people who

are left-handed. Needless to
say, the job was a whole lot
Did you know that a special
day was launched in 1996 for
those who are left-handed?
The date is Aug. 13 and awareness is raised of the difficulties and frustrations that lefthanders deal with in a world
designed for right-handed
people. Here are some things
we can do on that day.
Eat with your left hand all
day; use only your left hand
for writing or using a mouse;
attempt to cook dinner just
using your left hand and then
create a space that whenever
anyone enters, they, too, must
use their left hand. I think it
sounds like fun.
Did you know that eight
of our U.S. Presidents were
left-handed? Who were they?
Well, they include James Garfield, Herbert Hoover, Harry
Truman, Gerald Ford, Ronald
Reagan, George H.W. Bush
and todays president, Barack
It is awkward for me to do
anything with my left hand.
It would be nice if we could
use both hands or beambidextrous. I really do not know how
hard it was for the left-handed
people to survive through the
years. I guess they just learn
to adjust. My next goal on my
bucket list is to learn to be ambidextrous. I think I am on a
roll, because I just typed this
whole column with my left
Now, if you believe that, I
will sell you an igloo in Hawaii or Ill give you a Penny

periodically change your password, whether its for your

Even after taking these steps,
you could still run into identity

watch for certain signs, such
as the arrival of unexpected
credit cards or account statements, denials of credit for no

regarding purchases you didnt

Miller warns all men to screen early

Progress Staff Writer
In life all of us are on a journey of
some kind. With many of the twists and
turns in life we have some control, but
those dealing with cancer the journey
can be one of change, difficulty and pain
and often times, there is little or no
control. For Dean Miller, the twists and
turns have been many.
He has certainly had his share of difficulty and pain and Dean could easily
shake a fist and say its all been so unfair. But, he has taken his situation and
has made the best of it while finding the
positive and hoping to make it better for
someone else who is in a similar battle.
In 2008, when Dean was 50 years old,
he had a routine PSA test and his numbers registered higher than normal. With
the high numbers and additional testing,
it was discovered in 2010 that Dean had
prostate cancer that had originated in the
bladder. With the news, Dean had decisions to make as far as his future care.
I could have had surgery to remove
the prostate, but opted out of that procedure. Since that time, I have received
chemotherapy, radiation and hormone
therapy. This has been all a part of my
journey for the last four years, said
Prior to the unfortunate news, Dean
was enjoying life like most 50-year-olds.
Working at Defiance Precision Products
and before that at Weatherhead (Dana),
Dean was married and had two children

while enjoying fishing in his free time.

But with the cancer, the twists and turns
Well, obviously I couldnt work anymore, and because of the disease, medication and my unpredictable day-to-day
routine, I divorced, Dean commented.
The five-year battle continues and
the latest turn along the journey was
just about a year ago in the summer of
2015. Dean was experiencing unusual
pain in his left side and chest. At first he
thought he had bronchitis, but after a trip
to Cleveland Clinic, the diagnosis came
back as bone cancer in his ribs.
So the battle for a good day continues,
and although they may seem few and
far between, Dean still presses on while
looking at the positive.
The pain of the cancer is often times
unbearable. But what people may not
realize is how the medication can mess
you up mentally. Everything changes,
including the relationships with people.
I used to have friends, close friends, and
now because of how the medication has
effected me, they shy away because they
dont understand. The psychological part
of cancer is so devastating and it takes a
toll on you, he said.
The battles for someone like Dean can
be many. The disease itself, the everyday life changes, the harsh medications,
and the taking away of freedoms like
driving and not being able to fish, are a
few, but there are others. The constant
dealing with insurance companies, med-

ical professionals, and seeking out other

resource groups that supply support and
encouragement in many ways.
How medicines can be paid for is a
questions that Dean faces almost on a
daily basis.
One particular medication that Dean is
taking costs $11,000. He also knows that
he is basically on the last experimental
drug available today. Its almost a fulltime job trying to find ways to pay for
sky-high medications.
Its tough to work through all the red
tape. Some meds are experimental and
the dosage can be trial-and-error and
constantly changing. Trying to find the
right combination and knowing what
the body can tolerate is something I face
with my doctors all the time, said Dean.
This Friday evening, the annual Relay
For Life fundraising event will take place
at the Paulding County Fairgrounds.
Dean plans to be there and participate as
much as his body will allow. The Relay
means a great deal to him.
I remember the first year I met Dean.
I asked him to attend the first Relay and
it brought a sense of encouragement to
him. It was a very positive experience
for Dean and he has been attending each
year since, said Relay For Life coordinator Jillene McMichael.
Joe Shouse/Paulding County Progress
Today, when interviewing Dean, he Dean Miller remains positive through all the twists and turns
was upbeat and anxious to tell his story. in his life since he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2010.
Dean is one of three honorary survivors for this years annual
American Cancer Society Relay For Life. He will help lead the
See MILLER, page 12A Survivor Lap this Friday to open the two-day event.

Lori now a cheerleader for having colonoscopies

Just to get a baseline reading,
shed said. Something to compare future tests with, in case
any problems ever developed.
A colonoscopy is a test that
allows a doctor to look at the
inner lining of a patients large
intestine. The doctor uses a thin,

flexible tube called a colonoscope to look at the colon to determine if there are any ulcers,
colon polyps, tumors or areas of
inflammation or bleeding.
So in July 2007, Lori underwent the procedure. Her husband of just three years, Marv,
sat patiently in the waiting room

at Paulding County Hospital,

looking forward to his golf date
later that day.
But when the doctor came
out and said some mumbo-jumbo I didnt understand; I
asked him what he was talking
about, Marv recalls. Thats
when he put it in plain English
for me. She has colon cancer.
Its not what wed planned for
our retirement together. But you
know what they say about the
best-laid plans.
In August of that year, Dr.
William H. Strawter performed
Loris surgery, called a resection, to remove the tumor in the
wall of her colon.
I feel really lucky, she
says now. If I hadnt had that
check-up and the colonoscopy,
I might not be here today. Im
definitely a cheerleader now for
having colonoscopies. All my
friends know how I feel about
it. I talk about it constantly!
Although her doctors advised
Lori to take at least six weeks
off work following her operation, she went back to work in
just two weeks.
She was the picture of health
before and after the surgery,
Marv says. And she doesnt sit
still well. She figured she might
as well be at work as at home.
Lori continues, I work in
the office at the Herbert E. Orr
Judy Wells/Paulding County Progress Company. I didnt see how it
Lori and Marv say their children and grandchildren pictured on the mantle behind them make could be any harder for me to
them the happiest. Im so excited that theyll all be walking with me on the Survivors Lap, Lori sit behind my desk than to be
says. It means the world to me. Lori will be one of three survivors who will lead the kick-off lap sitting around here at home
dwelling on the fact that I had
of the Relay For Life this weekend.

In fact, Lori was recovering
so nicely from her surgery that
she didnt need any chemotherapy or radiation treatments afterward.
And I didnt have to take any
medications then or now, she
adds. I feel really blessed.
Following her operation, she
did need to have blood work
drawn every three months for
a while, then every six months.
Now its once a year, along
with her colonoscopies at regular intervals.
But after youve had cancer, that fear never goes away,
she says. Its not IF the cancer is going to come back, but
WHEN. Thats why Im so
dedicated about having regular
check-ups. But I have to knock
on wood because Ive had clean
check-ups for nine years. I
never say Im cancer-free, just
that Ive had clean check-ups.
Lori will be one of three cancer survivors who will walk
the Survivors Lap during the
annual Relay For Life at the
Paulding County Fairgrounds
on June 3-4.
Ive been a big supporter of
the Relay for years, she says.
Even before my diagnosis, I
was involved with it. Im on the
Marathon Moms team and we
have fundraisers all year long.
Its a great group of about
20 women who are always
looking out for each other.
Ive made lots of friendships
through them.


Feature Writer
Nine years ago, Paulding resident Lori Ankney went in for
her annual physical exam, just
as shed done for years. But because shed recently turned 50,
her gynecologist, Shane Gerber,
encouraged her to also have a

Our team leader, Sue

Young, is always thinking of
different ways for us to make
money bake sales, car washes,
whatever to help raise money
for the Relay. We were the first
team in the county to raise over
$100,000, Lori says. The
Relay has become a year-round
event. Now our Moms group
includes some of the children
and even grandchildren of the
original group of women.
One of Loris favorite parts
of the Relay For Life is the
lighting of the luminaries.
Its so emotional, she
shares. You walk around the
track and read the names on
the luminaries and think, I
didnt know that person had
cancer. It really brings a lump
to your throat.
When she walks her first lap
this year, Lori will be accompanied by her brood as Marv
calls them.
My four children and all
eight grandchildren will be
walking with me, she says.
That will be really special
for me to have them all there.
Faith, family and friends will
get you through every day.
Early detection is the key, but
you definitely have to believe
in the good Lord, too.
But perhaps Marv sums it
up best. Nobody wants to go
for a colonoscopy, he says,
but it definitely saved Loris
life. A little discomfort now is
better than a lot of misery or
worse later.

Tips for container

garden success
Im always a little late assembling my container plantings, but this year my procrastinating ways paid off. That late
frost we had gave credence to
my bad habits. It eased my guilt
about not getting some seeds
planted earlier too.
But last week, after a visit to
some Cincinnati garden centers
and a few local ones, container
gardening at Our Little Acre
was off and running. Trial
plants sent to me from several
breeders and growers added
some interest to my mixes, too.
Ive never felt like I possessed much natural talent
when it comes to artistic expression and that applies to
my container gardening skills.
Envisioning this with that is
something I have a hard time
doing. Give me a recipe or a
pattern to follow, Im good.
Creating my own from scratch?
Not so good.
But I can be taught and
heres what Ive learned.
Theres the old standby
formula of Thriller/Filler/
Spiller and that almost always
works well. Something tall as
a focal point, something vining
or spilling over the edge of the
container, and something of
mid-height to bridge the gap
between the two.
Pay attention to a plants
needs when it comes to light
and water. Where is your container going to go? If its in
full sun, you sure dont want
to put shade plants in that pot
because theyll burn or fade, or
die, even.
Try not to mix plants that
require a lot of water with
things that dont, such as succulents. One of the two types
isnt going to be happy. You
might be able to get away with
this though, if you keep the odd
one in its own container within
your container and be mindful
about where that water goes.
Play the color game and
have fun with it! You know
what you like when you make
your clothing choices or when
youre decorating a home. Put-

ting colors together in a container works the same way.

In fact, if you have a favorite
outfit, try using all the colors
in your outfit for a container
planting. And dont forget,
white is a color.
To keep your mixed container planting from being a
yawner, pay attention to texture. You have so many textures to work with, so do it!
Spiky, ferny, big and small
leaves, and goodness, just look
at the flowers! Daisy-like, bellshaped, frilly, shredded, and so
on. Mix it up!
Use a good potting mix
when planting your containers,
not garden soil. That alone can
make or break the success of

your plantings, especially by

the time July and August roll
around. Potting mixes are much
lighter than native garden soils
and are composed of a mixture
thats perfect for growing in
containers. Most of the potting
mixes available today already
have fertilizer added to them
too, enough to last for several
Remember when you
water your containers, dont
stop until you see the water
coming out the drainage hole
in the bottom of the container.
(You DO have drainage holes
in your containers, right?) In
hot weather, monitor your pots
closely, as theyre going to
need watering more often.
As the summer wears
on, things like petunias,
calibrachoas and verbenas may
need to be pruned a little to
keep them blooming better and
looking more attractive. Once
you see them looking leggy,
thats your signal to trim them
up and give them a boost with
a general purpose fertilizer.

well too, when you pay attention to texture and height.

Doing better, he said. He went on to share

his appreciation to what Relay For Life means
to him and the support it brings to so many. He
also is so thankful to his caregiver, Donna Beard.
Later this summer, Beard plans to have a benefit
for Dean in order to raise funds to help pay for a
portion of his medication.
Dean understands his future may be shortlived. He has battled cancer for more than five
years and never once was in remission. But
knowing all of that, he still has a bucket list.
I want to go to Niagara Falls and I want to
board the train and go to Chicago. Thats about
it, he said.
The bucket list is important, but more important than the trips is expressing to others espe-

cially to men the importance of early screening.

I had my first PSA screening at age 50 and
I wish I had done it earlier. Prostate cancer is
something men do not want to talk about, but
we need to. If I could relay a message to men, it
would be to get the screening early, Dean said.
So, for Dean, the journey continues, and it will
have more twists and turns, good days and not so
good. The medication will have him restricted in
doing some of the things he has always enjoyed,
but like McMichael said, Dean still has the
same heart and thats pretty special in my book.

Archbold 12, Paulding 1

Lady Panthers season ends at regional semifinal

Sports Writer
FINDLAY The magical
tournament ride for the Paulding Lady Panthers came to an
end Wednesday afternoon in
the semifinal game of the Division III, Region 10 Findlay
regional when the Archbold
Blue Streaks flexed their hitting muscles at the plate for
a 12-1 win. The maroon-andwhite, first time winners of a
softball district, had no answer
for the 19-5 Blue Streaks who
scored four runs in the first inning and then eight more in the
Paulding managed to get on

the board first with a run in the

top half of the first inning. An
Audrie Manz single followed
by a Haylee Dominique walk
had the Panthers with two base
runners and just one out. Following a strike out by senior
Kristen Schilt, teammate Bailey Pieper smacked a single to
left field to score Manz from
second base.
We did exactly what we
wanted to do. We knew it
would be important to score
early and hopefully get the
lead and build on our momentum. But we were nervous
and made some mistakes. But
I dont want to dwell on the

negative, but I want to use our

tournament run as a positive
and build on that, said Paulding head coach Matt Carr.
Archbold sent 10 batters to
the plate and opened with its
first players producing a bunt
single, a double and a single.
Later in the inning and holding a 2-1 lead with two outs,
the Blue Streaks collected
three singles and a walk from
their next four batters to help
increase their margin to 4-1.
Following a quick three up/
three down inning for the Panthers, the Streaks were back
on offense, continuing their
hitting barrage.

Alyssa Ziegler opened the

second inning with a single
followed by a Cassi Wyse
walk. Pitcher Payton Robinson connected on a single
to left field, scoring Ziegler
from second. Shelby Cline
laid a perfect bunt that pushed
Robinson to second base and
scoring Wyse to increase the
Archbold advantage to 6-1.
The Blue Streaks continued
to keep the Panthers on their
heels with a couple of bunts,
the second by Macey Rupp, to
load the bases. A Ziegler single (her second of the game
along with a double) to the left
field fence to push the lead to

11-1. Following the Ziegler for next season.

Egnor repeats as PC Player of the Year

standout and future Bowling
Green State University baseball player Damon Egnor was
unanimously voted the Paulding County Progress/Welch
Trophy Player of the Year in
voting by the county coaches
Egnor dominated opposing
teams for the Panthers, allowing only two unearned runs in
39-2/3 innings while giving up
ten hits and a dozen walks. The
Panther hurler also struck out 80
batters and posted a 5-1 record
on the season with one save,
helping to lead the maroonand-white to the schools 14th
Northwest Conference championship with a record of 10-6
overall and 7-1 in the NWC.
Damon was dominant on
the mound for us this season,
commented Paulding head
coach Travis McGarvey. He
had two no hitters this year and
retired every one of them via a
strikeout in one of those games.
He averaged two strikeouts an
inning. Damons talent is indisputable and his approach to
the game matches that talent.
No matter what happened on
the field, he was focused on the
next pitch and not on things he
could no longer control.
At the plate, Egnor batted
.256 but led the Panthers in
walks drawn (13) and runs
scored (17). He also recorded
ten hits, including two doubles
and a home run, while driving
in seven runs.
He took on a leadership
role with both his action and
words, continued the Panther
mentor. He was focused on
the performance of the team
as much as his own perfor-

mance. His mental toughness

combined with his talent really
sets him apart. I never had to
question whether or not he was
ready because it was clear to all
of us.
Joining Egnor on the First
Team were Paulding teammates Corbin Edwards, Lupe
Martinez, Cameron Doster
and Preston Johanns. The rest
of the All-County First Team
honorees included Wayne
Traces Blaine Jerome, Luke
Miller and Noah Stoller along
with the Antwerp duo of Josh
Poulson and Trey Mills.
Corbin Edwards, who will
play at Defiance College next
year, topped the maroon-andwhite with 25 hits and posted
four doubles and three triples
this season. Edwards led the
Panthers with a .431 batting
average, scoring nine runs and
recorded 15 runs batted in. On
the mound, Edwards tossed
9-1/3 innings, allowing seven hits and eight walks while
striking out 15. Edwards finished with an earned run average of 3.00.
Preston Johanns tossed 232/3 innings for the Panthers, recording 16 strikeouts while giving up 33 hits and eight walks to
go along with a 3.55 earned run
average. At the plate, Johanns
hit .306 and topped the Panthers
with 16 runs batted in. Johanns
also chipped in two doubles,
two home runs and a dozen
runs scored.
Lupe Martinez pitched 27
frames for the maroon-andwhite, fanning 22 opposing
hitters while allowing 23 hits
and eight bases on balls. Martinez ended the season with an
earned run average of 0.78.

The Panther hitter finished

second on the squad with a
.370 batting average, recording
17 hits while scoring 10 runs
and driving in 11.
Cameron Doster hit .349
this season, posting two doubles, 14 runs scored and 10
runs batted in.
Trey Mills hit a team-high
.319 for the Archers, posting
15 hits with three doubles and
eight runs batted in. Mills also
scored four times and picked
up four stolen bases for the Archers, who finished 2-14 overall and 2-5 in the Green Meadows Conference.
Josh Poulson, a sophomore,
posted a .310 batting average
for the blue-and-white, scoring six runs and driving in two
while recording four stolen
Blaine Jerome batted a
team-high .316 for Wayne
Trace, leading the Raiders with
18 hits and finishing second on
the squad with 11 runs batted
in. He also scored eight times
on the season and stole seven
Luke Miller topped the
Raiders with 16 stolen bases
and posted a .308 batting average, good for second on the
team. The senior infielders
also chipped in 14 runs scored
and nine runs batted in while
hitting five doubles, helping
Wayne Trace to a 6-13 overall
record and 1-6 mark in Green
Meadows Conference action.
Noah Stoller paced the redwhite-and-blue in runs batted
in while tying for the team
lead in doubles with five. The
Raider senior finished the season with a .278 batting average, chipping in a dozen runs

scored and drawing 11 walks.

Antwerps Hunter Noel
also was selected for Honorable Mention after hitting .273
with four doubles and eight
runs batted in on the year.
Noel recorded an earned run
average of 3.84 on the season
with 18 strikeouts in 28 in-

nings pitched.
Austin Fast of Wayne Trace
garnered honorable mention,
posting a batting average of
.250 with 14 hits in 56 at-bats.
Fast chipped in one triple while
scoring 16 runs and driving in
six. Fast also tossed 4-1/3 innings of relief for the Raider

pitching staff, giving up one hit

and one walk.

Commissioners Journal May 18,

This 18th day of May, 2016, the
Board of County Commissioners met
in regular session with the following
members present: Tony Zartman, Roy
Klopfenstein, Mark Holtsberry, and
Nola Ginter, Clerk.
Deb Guilford, PCBDD director;
and County Auditor Claudia Fickel
Guilford began the meeting by announcing she has arranged to pay for
PCBDDs Medicaid recertification
by check as opposed to using a credit
The discussion then focused on
PCDDs buses and garage status.
Guilford noted the buses are all titled
in the commissioners name. She also
said the garage is a full service facility
and there are also a lot of tools.
Guilford stated the Paulding County
Board of DDs regular monthly meeting is tomorrow at 4 p.m. The goal of
the board is privatization of the Workshop by the end of this year.
Guilford was questioned as to the
necessity of renting a van from Williams County. She explained that
buses require a driver with a CDL and
also require that you have a transportation supervisor on staff. PCBDDs
transportation supervisor resigned and
the bus driver is retiring June 1. Van
drivers do not require a CDL and do
not require a transportation supervisor.
Guilford noted that Medicaid can
still be billed to transport clients to
and from work. The vans are capable
of transporting up to 13 people and are
handicapped equipped.
Guilford reported approximately
40 employees are currently at the PC
Workshop. They are currently using a
van they rent from Williams County
and a van the PC Workshop owns to
transport workers.
Guilford noted plans to privatize
the Workshop by the end of 2016 are
well under way. She also explained
that PCBDDs clients receive services
for life and that Paulding County has
a waiting list for people who need services. Guilford noted the SSAs employed at PARC Lane are working on
the waiting lists. She also commented
that the PC Workshops production
manager is able to keep plenty of work
to keep clients/employees busy.
County Auditor Claudia Fickel
presented a new report from her real
estate office. It tracks the wind farms
PILOT to date and the settlement
total amounts various entities have
She also presented the Sales Tax report for April. along with the General
Fund Revenue and Expenses reports.
She reminded the commissioners
the Homestead forms are due June 6.
She also noted her office will accept forms noting demolitions for tax
credits year round. She recommends
they be filled out and turned in as soon

Whether youknow a young
man or woman who is graduating from high school or
college this season, perhaps
the most important advise you
can give them is to find mentors who will take the time to
counsel them as a protg.
Advise them to value learning, curiosity, discipline and
character. Urge them to be
careful about little things that
they know can be tragically
important. Tell them to treat
everyone that comes in touch
with them with respect and
warmth. Teach them that style
and grace are essential to leadership.
Mentors will teach lessons
that are rooted in wisdom and
character. Being smart is not
sufficient even if it is essential.
They need to learn to maintain
balance between short-term
objectives and what are always called what really matters.
Former corporate executive
and Major League Baseball
commissioner Fay Vincent is
a big advocate of mentoring.
He notes that finding success
requires a degree of luck.
He said old baseball legend
Branch Rickey once opined,
Luck is the residue of design.
Mentoring is an art and it
requires both time and energy.
Not every successful leader
is willing to take the time to
provide explicit counseling.
Finding a mentor that will take
the time to share lifes lessons
with you might be your greatest blessing. Even better, cultivate a team of mentors. You
cant have too many.

About 30 years ago, Dr.

Robert Spitzer of Burlington,
Wis., was president of the Milwaukee School of Engineering. He delivered an address
to a distinguished audience
at the International Science
and Engineering Fair in Milwaukee. Following are a few
thoughts from his address titled Challenges Facing the

Make the Difference

Byron McNutt
Worlds Youth.
There will be obstacles. I
know of no leader who is not
an optimist. Success comes in
cans, not in can nots.
Right now your education
is the most precious possession you can acquire. Todays
young people, given the right
educational environment, seek
education in its true sense.
They seek leadership; more
are goal oriented, they are
looking for models and examples of sound values; they are
ready for careers with a purpose; they want self-esteem of
productive work.
Your education should not
only be a classroom experience. It is the sum total of
all of lifes experience...the

home, television, parents, music, arts, friends, church, community and work, in addition
to school itself.
To me, education is not
the acquisition of knowledge
alone, but the development
of experience and wisdom,
of attitudes, habits, skills and
knowledge. An education is
an ongoing experience. Dont
forget to study the basics ...
reading, writing, math, science and economics.
Learn that self-esteem can
be derived from hard work,
work, craftsmanship and the
dignity of self-support. Remember that the highest priority on this planet is for peace
among its inhabitants ... for
as our numbers and our technology makes the world seem
smaller, it is vital to our own
existence that we learn how to
live together.
Dr. Spitzer said, Persistence is the quality that
has helped so many successful people become a success.
When you feel that its time to
quit, give up or throw in the
towel, 98 percent will do just
that, but the other 2 percent
will keep trying. In the game
of golf, the follow-through is
the important thing. My challenge to you is follow through
with life.

Feltz brings a ministry of
presence wherever he serves
Progress Staff Writer
OAKWOOD Any pastor
who is fortunate to lead a local
congregation has many opportunities to teach, share and grow in the
experience. A congregation, made
up of all kinds of people, from all
walks of life, always brings challenges to the pastors attention
and along the way a relationship
is built through joy, sadness, and
friendship in other words, just
simple, everyday living.
The connection between the
pastor and the people he serves is
special. Its hard to explain and its
hard to understand unless you are
or ever have been a pastor. Its a
very special calling, that when it is
acceptedlife changes ... forever!
For Brady Feltz, pastor of the
Twin Oaks United Methodist
Church in Oakwood, the calling
came to ministry and more specifically the chaplaincy when he
was 18 or 19 years old. Later, the
call to the local church in order
to build and revitalize the church
came and he accepted the challenge and it changed him, forever.
Not only is Feltz pastoring locally but he also serves as a chaplain in the United States Army Reserves. The Captain was commissioned in 2007 into the chaplain
program and currently serves the
785th Military Police Battalion in
A local pastor since April 2015,
Feltz came to Oakwood after
completing a three year charge
at New Hope United Methodist

Church in Eaton, Ohio.

His initial obligation to the reserves is a four year term. He is
obligated to serve a week end a
month and a two weeks a year.
My time can be broken up
in smaller segments. I can serve
in various ways for three or four
days at a time. It is somewhat
flexible and my area of service
is Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin
or Missouri. My church has been
very helpful in working with me
on scheduling and allowing me
the time off necessary to fulfill
my obligations with the Army
Reserves, said Feltz.
Often times when Feltz is on
assignment he will meet with
those being deployed. Providing
pastoral care, emotional support,
and helping deal with issues at
home in a positive way is all part
of his ministry.
Its called a ministry of presence. Making myself available to
those soldiers who will be leaving
home. Its not always easy but I
do what I can to bring a sense of
stability in their lives, Feltz said.
When comparing his military
obligation and its demands to
those of the local congregation, he
sees some obvious differences.
In the military when you may
only spend a few days, or a weekend with a group, its difficult to
build a solid relationship because
theres not enough time. To follow-up on a soldier is not always
an easy thing to do. Sometimes
you rely on telephone counseling.
However, with the local church

VBS Schedules

where Brady is present and available much of the time, its different. Building friendships and
growing relationally is much
easier because more time is spent
together with the congregation.
The idea of separating the pastoral concerns and needs of the
local congregants verses those of
soldiers can be a little difficult according to Feltz.
Its hard sometimes. With soldiers it often seems more acute
or extreme. They may be on
their way to another country they
have never been before and they
are leaving behind a family and
maybe dealing with a possible divorce. Or there are those who are
dealing with post traumatic stress
disorder compared to someone in
the local church who is struggling
with the subject matter of a Bible
Feltz, whose church has a
weekly attendance of 85, does all
he can to stay to meet the demands
of ministry. While serving locally
as well as his military obligation,
Brady is also planning to get married this New Years Eve.
Spending time with my fiancee is obviously important and we
enjoy our time together. I admit
that Im not involved in the wedding plans as much as I should be
but shes working hard with making sure its what she wants and
thats fine with me, he said.
When dealing with many of
the pressures that people bring
his way and counseling people
in making positive life choices,
there are times when Brady sim-

Scripture of the Week:

Everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I
have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage,
so that I could gain Christ --Philippians 3:8


ply needs to get away and refresh

and refocus.
I have daily, weekly and even
yearly habits, I guess you could
say, that I draw from that allows
me to get away and rethink. Daily,
I read the Bible and usually another book of interest and I pray.
Weekly, I exercise, not as
much as I should, but when I do
it helps me to refocus and think
more clearly. I also have what I
call sabbath ( a day off) that I am
real strict in maintaining. Thats
my day for me. The congregation
understands what that day means
to me and they respect it. They
know that it must be a real emergency in order for them to call
me, he said.
The pastor also enjoys wood
working, watching movies and
writing creatively.
A ministry of presence, weather
its in Oakwood or Detroit, or to
those in war torn countries Pastor Feltz, Chaplain Feltz, or Captain Feltz, its not so much his title
but the message he brings for all to

Todays question we need

to consider and then honestly
answer is this just how close
are you to God? The answer
is somewhat simplistic to answer. We are all as close to
God as we want to be.
We are never going to become a friend of God in our
spare time. We have to make
knowing God a number one
priority in life. So, how are we
doing with that. Are you seeking God with all of your heart
Paul says it like this: Everything else is worthless
when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ
Jesus my Lord. For his sake
I have discarded everything
else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain
Christ -- Philippians 3:8.
Remember: You are as
close to God as you choose to
be. Youre going to become a
friend of God when you want
to become a friend of God.
None of us can blame anybody else. You cant blame
your wife, your husband, your
parents, or your kids. Again,
we are as close to God as we
want to be. And if you feel far
from God, guess who moved?
You didnt make him the number one priority of your life.
Knowing and loving God is

our greatest privilege. And being known and being loved by

God is our greatest pleasure.
There is something I have
noticed in people and that is
you can tell whats important
to them by what they brag
about. If their kids are most
important, they brag about
their kids. If their job is the
most important thing in their
life, they brag about their job.
If travel and having experiences is most important, thats
what they talk about. If partying or buying new clothes
is what you talk about most,
guess what you value most?
You brag about what you value most.
God says in Jeremiah 9:23,
The wise should not boast of
their wisdom, nor the strong
of their strength, nor the rich
of their wealth. If any want to
boast, they should boast that
they know and understand
Why? Because thats what
life is all about. Knowing God
is what matters most. The God
of the Universe loves you and
wants to have a relationship
with you. Getting close to
God will give you peace and
perspective. Wow, thats good
stuff. So, just how close are
you to God?
