revealed at noon Saturday during a special ceremony.
A check for $141,754.90 was presented to Honor Flight representatives
by PPEC employees during a noon program at PPEC corporate headquarters
in Paulding.
Its overwhelming how our employees and the region came together
to make this all happen, but its not
hard when you have a cause like Honor
Flight, said George Carter, CEO and
general manager of PPEC.
The cost to sponsor an entire flight
averages between $65,000 to $70,000,

Annual county Relay For Life raises $56,000

Feature Writer
PAULDING Jillene McMichael, one of the leaders
involved with the Paulding
County Relay For Life effort, said Sunday evening that
this years event total stood at
$56,000 and money was still
coming in.
We had a beautiful evening, said McMichael. Everyone seemed to be appreciating the great weather and
crowd of caring people. I cant
say enough to thank the people
of Paulding County for their
generous giving toward cancer
McMichael said that committee members decided to add
some touches this year to create more interest for children
and make the event more of a
family affair. She noted that
younger supporters seemed to
enjoy bounce houses, slip and
slide houses and other kid oriented activities.
The Paulding FFA did a
plant sale; that went over really

the way her husband (Ken) has
fought to combat the disease
over a long period of time.
My husband has had a lot
to do with my involvement. He
is a four-time cancer survivor.
He is an inspiration to a lot of
people, noted Young.
Brittany Daeger was busy
making walking tacos in her
teams food stand. She noted
that she is always touched by
the survivor lap and the presence of those who continue to
fight the cancer battle.
We do this in honor of our
family and friends that have
gone before us, said Daeger.
Some day we hope that there
will be a cure for cancer.
Cancer survivor Dean Miller
was especially thankful to be
present for this years event.
Miller found out early this year
that his cancer is considered
to be in an incurable state. He
stated that realization of that
especially makes it meaningful
to be alive and part of another
Relay For Life.
This has changed my whole
life, said Miller. Ive had

many that have abandoned me,
too. Cancer has such a strong
effect on others around you.
You never know what kind of
an effect its going to have on
those close to you.
Theres no way to describe
what you feel once you get
cancer, continued Miller. Its
hard to put into words. You
look at a new world through
different eyes.
Every day when you see the
scar from your surgery you are
reminded of where your faith
has brought you, commented
Lori Ankney, a nine-year survi-

vor of colon cancer. Im thankful for each day, each year, each
cancer relay.
Stacey Thomas, who has
been involved with the Relay
For Life for many years said
that this past year has especially been difficult because members of her personal family
have had their battles with the
dreaded disease.
Ive always felt deeply
about this, but when it comes
down to your own family, it really has an effect on you, said
Thomas. It means more to me
this year than it ever has.

continue to show improvement

into next season.
Goings, who became the first
Raider to place in three events at
the state meet last season, turned
the trick for the second time this
She has come a long way
since her freshman year, commented Branch. Her freshman
year, she came in and I think
struggled a little bit confidence
wise after having success at the
junior high level. She learned
that running against juniors and
seniors wasnt the same and she
had to make that adjustment.
Last year, she still had some
consistency issues where her
times fluctuated quite a bit but
she got better as the year went
and really finished strong and
placed at state in three events,
Branch continued.
In the middle of the two
sprints, the Lady Raider 400 relay quartet of Gracie Gudakunst,
Stacy Flint, Shayna Temple and
Goings took third in the finals on
We are very proud of that
group as well, Branch said.
They have really had to overcome some adversity due to
injuries and they ran their best
race of the season on Saturday,
setting a new school record in
the process. Everything really
came together for them in that
last race.
That same quartet improved
on a fifth place finish at last
years state meet where they
broke the schools record with
a time of 51.03 seconds. However, this year the foursome did
one better by posting a time of
50.66 seconds in taking third.
Shayna was a question
mark due to the injury there before basketball season, added
Branch. Then Stacy had injury issues where we had to shut
her down for a couple of weeks.
But Gracie really improved herself this year and Monique ran
a great race for us as well. The

girls that stepped in during the

season really helped to push
this group too. It was just a great
effort by all of the girls and we
were very pleased with the way
they ran Saturday.
Division III boys action saw
Antwerp senior Sam Williamson find himself on the podium
on the final day of his Archer
career, taking sixth in the 1600
meter run with a time of 4:21.96.
Williamson entered the 1600
run with the fourth best time of
4:24.84 and while entering the
3200 with the 16th best time of
Prior to leaving for Columbus
on Thursday, Williamson said
before boarding the Archer bus,
I am going to give it all Ive
got in the 1600 and then run the
3200 and see how it goes.
Williamson finished his Archer career as one of the schools
finest athletes and according to
his coach left a mark that will be
hard to duplicate.
Sam has had a fantastic career, Ehrhart continued. He
qualified to run in seven state
meets between cross country
(three) and track (four). He ran
a textbook race in the 1600 and
ran a personal best as well. It is
just so difficult to compete at
this level in both the 1600 and
3200 runs due to how much it
takes out of you. He has a lot
to be proud of and has accomplished so much these last four
In his final race in an Antwerp
uniform, Williamsons finished
13th in the 3200 run with a time
of 9:51.76. The Archer senior
will continue his running career
at Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne,
where he will run cross country
next season.
He has gone well beyond
anything I could ask for as a
coach, Ehrhart continued. He
is an incredibly competitive individual and has set some school
records that it will be very difficult for anyone to break.

On day one of the state track
and field meet, the Wayne Trace
girls squad advanced to the finals on Saturday in all three
events they took part in on Friday.
Wayne Traces Monique Goings moved on to the finals as an
individual in both the 100 and
200 meter dash after qualifying
out of the preliminaries.
Goings finished third in her
heat in the 100 dash with a time
of 12.54 to move on to Saturdays championship race.
In the 200 dash, Goings took
fourth in her heat posting a time
of 25.95 to move on to Saturdays finals.
Also advancing was the Raider 400 relay squad of Gracie
Gudakunst, Stacy Flint, Shayna
Temple and Goings. The quartet
took fourth in their heat with a
time of 51.16.
Antwerps 3200 relay took
part in the only running final
on Friday and wrapped up the
year with a 16th place finish in
10:16.71. The squad consisted
of Rachel Williamson, Anne
Miesle, Audrie Longardner and
Jaime Ryan. Both Longardner
and Miesle are seniors.
Antwerps 3200 relay team
of Jaime Ryan, Rachel Williamson, Anne Miesle and Audrie
Longardner completed their season on Friday with a 16th place
finish and a time of 10:16.71.
They really worked hard going into the district meet to make
themselves the best they could
be, Antwerp head coach Cord
Ehrhart said. They worked on
things they needed to do to get
better and just believed in themselves and their abilities. In the
districts, they improved on their
best time by 22 seconds and finished second before running another season best at the regional
to advance to state. I am very
proud of that group of girls and
what they were able to do.

New Bargain Bin facility at

a standstill; funding needed
PAULDING Members of
the Bargain Bin of Paulding
County Inc. held their annual
meeting including the election
of new officers. Following a
brief meeting at the Paulding
Presbyterian church members
enjoyed lunch served by the
ladies of the church.
Officers for 2016-17 were
installed by Jan Commers.
They are Rhonda Smalley
president, Rose Munger vice
president, Elaine Gress second vice president, Eileen Kochensparger secretary, Sharon
Johanns assistant secretary,
Donna Pieper treasurer and
Eleanor Brune assistant treasurer.
The mission of the Bargain
Bin is to provide equipment
and or educational materials
to the Paulding County therapy department for the wellness
of the community.
The members are still working diligently on reaching
their goal of $250,000 for the
new building that is under
construction at the corner of
Harrison and Cherry streets in
One question that continues to be brought up is why
the committee did not elect
to purchase one of the empty
buildings that is around the
square. That was the original
goal but after investigating it
was discovered the considerable amount it would cost in
purchasing one of the existing
buildings and the amount of
funding for such a project was
not available.
With the cost of building
renovation, there would also
be the expense to get it ready
for move in. The discussion
of renting a building had
been suggested, but again, the
amount was overwhelming
so it was decided to stay in
the present building for now.
Eventually, as a surprise to
many, the Bargain Bin would
soon be given the opportunity

Pet Grooming

Large & Small

We do them all
Cats & Dogs Grooming


to build a new building.

Since the Bargain Bin is a
local business, members voted
to join the Paulding Chamber of Commerce and will be
having awalking taco stand
during the John Paulding Days
at the Presbyterian church
parking lot.
The Bargain Bin is also active in other community affairs and will be supporting
the Paulding County Fair by
sponsoring trophies. While
they are making their presence
known in the community they
still keep as their main focus
the continued support of the
hospital therapy department.
Anxious to get into their new
building, Bargain Bin Inc. is at
a standstill at the moment due
to not having enough money
to move forward with their
new facility. They now turn
to the community for financial
support in hopes of reaching
their goal.
For more information, contact one of the officers. Their

next meeting will be at 10:30

a.m. July 11 at the Paulding
County Hospital education
room. Guests are always welcome.
To make a donation to the
building project, please send
to the Bargain Bin Building
Fund, 118 W. Perry St., Paulding OH 45879.

Local Democrats
to man fair tent
County Democratic Party
will be manning a tent during
fair week, making available
beverages and peanuts.
The tent will be open from
11 a.m. until close each day
of the Paulding County Fair,
June 13-18. They will have
water, pop and Gatorade.
Special note: There will be
no Democratic Central Committee meeting in June due to
conflict with fair week. Next
meeting will be Aug. 9.

June days bring garden goodies

and boatload of bluegills
We have entered the month
of June already. It looks like we
had just a little bit of rain during
the night, which we really need.
Last night we watered the garden, as it was getting really dry.
But everything is coming up
really well. We are still enjoying radishes, green onions and
lettuce from our first planting
earlier this spring.
We had a nice three-day weekend with a lot of fishing. On Friday evening some went fishing
on the lake, and then went again
Saturday and Monday.
On Sunday evening, we
ate outside around the fire.
The men deep-fried fish and
French fries. How nice to just
sit and watch.
Timothy and Elizabeth went
to church at his sisters house
in another church district.
We kept their dogs, Izzy and
Crystal, while they were gone.
Crystal doesnt like to be separated from Elizabeth, but Izzy
loves staying here. She will go
hide when she knows they are
leaving for home.
Saturday, we had a short visit from my sister Liz, Levi and
family. Their daughter Elizabeth
and her husband Samuel, and
their baby LaRose were also
along, as was their daughter Rosas special friend, Menno.
LaRose is around six months
old and looks like she doesnt
lack attention. She is Liz and
Levis first grandchild, and
shes a sweetie. Daughter Elizabeth was here and got to see
LaRose for the first time. Sister
Liz is doing a great job at being
a grandma and spoiling her.
Joes sister Salome and husband Morris are also first-time
grandparents now. Their daughter Katie Edna, and husband
Ben had a son named Benjamin.
Joe went to visit them while we
were at niece Lovinas wedding.
I was a cook so I didnt go with
Joe. Hopefully Ill get to meet
little Benjamin soon maybe
at the family gathering in July.
Joes sister Christine and Jake
are planning to have all of Joes
family there on July 2. They
live about three hours north of
here. We are looking forward to
seeing everyone again. Its been
awhile since weve seen some
of the family. Hope everyone
will make it.
On Monday, everyone went
fishing except daughters Elizabeth, Lovina and I. Timothy had
his boat out, and both of ours
were out as well. When they
started filleting fish, they had
more than 200 bluegills. Timothys nephew was also fishing
and helped clean the fish. Everyone was here for a pizza supper
before leaving Monday evening.
I usually have a bunch of bananas hanging on a banana holder on my countertop. Elizabeth
took a banana and started eating

it. Son Kevin, 10, told her that

everyone needs to ask him for a
banana, since thats why Mom
buys them. He said that since
shes married now, she doesnt
have to ask him. Elizabeth and
I had a good laugh about that
after he went outside. I dont
know where he got the idea that
the bananas are his. I think he
likes eating bananas more than
anyone else does. When he was
a little boy, he always asked for
bananas when he saw them at
the store. He wasnt very old,
and he would call them monkey. I think it was because we
would call him a monkey when
he was eating them.
I want to make rhubarb juice
this week. Daughter Elizabeth made several batches and

brought us a taste delicious!

Susan is still working on
getting her wedding invitations
out. She said she didnt realize
there was that much work to get
ready for a wedding. She said it
looked easier when Elizabeth
did it.
I must get back to work.
Gods blessings!

Habitat for Humanity to

celebrate open house
OAKWOOD Members of
Habitat for Humanity of Paulding
County are inviting the public to
come to Oakwood on Thursday,
June 16, at 5 p.m. to the open
house of their brand new habitat
The new home is on Third
Street on the east side of Oakwood Elementary School. The
new owners will be there to
welcome community residents
as well as members of Habitat.
This is the eighth home to be built
since the beginning of Habitat in
Paulding County in early 2000.
Habitat homes also are located in
Antwerp, Paulding, Haviland and
Habitat for Humanity was the
inspiration of Mr. and Mrs. Millard Fillmore and over the years
habitat homes have been built all
over the world.
Habitat homes are not given
to the homeowners. They are
expected to put in numerous
sweat equity hours, not only for
their new home but also for future families who will be getting
a new home from Habitat. They
attend classes on how to manage
money and how to be responsible for a new home. They have a
mortgage to pay which is held by
the Habitat committee.
The family chooses everything
about the house from the floor
plan to the color on the walls.
Knowing the home belongs to the
new owner, hopefully for a long
time, its important for them to be
happy in their new home.
However, as soon as they officially become the home owner
they are responsible for everything that comes with house.
The local Habitat is funded by
the home owners, who pay their
monthly mortgages and by donations and fund raisers. For the last
several years the local group has
had the Hog Run/Walk at the fair-

ground in October. The event is

being planned again for this fall.
At the monthly meeting
members are asked to tithe
with funds being sent to Habitat International. This way, everyone has a part in building
homes for other families.
Building nice homes for families
is the goal for Habitat for Humanity and plans are already underway
for the construction of Paulding
County house number nine.
The committee always takes
into consideration if there is a
septic system already in place
and running water. Building
in town is much more feasible

since these two important requirements are already in place

and can be easily tapped into.
But they have built homes on
property that the family already
owns. Another benefit to the family is to have the property donated
to Habitat. This helps to keep the
mortgage payment at a reasonable amount.
Habitat board meets the last
Monday of the month at the office of the Paulding United Methodist church at 4:45 p.m. Visitors
are always welcome.
Plan now to attend the open
house in Oakwood, June 16 at
5 p.m.

Tractor gone AWOL

subject of lawsuit

PAULDING Leaders of the John Paulding Historical Society are

taking measures to secure a piece of antique equipment that was on
permanent loan to the group.
On Wednesday, May 25, the societys attorney, Harvey D. Hyman,
filed a complaint, alleging conversion and a request for replevin with
a demand for a jury trial against two individuals.
Those individuals are Mary Jo Broecker of Fort Jennings and
James Bechtel of Goshen, Ind.
According to the complaint, the late Ralph J. Horstman of Delphos
entered a loan agreement with the JPHS in September 1997. He offered a permanent loan of his 1924 Rumley oil pull type G tractor.
The agreement indicated the tractor could be taken from the museum by members of his family for display at festivals if they give
two weeks notice. It also stated the only reason the agreement would
cease is if the JPHS were to break up.
According to the three-page complaint, Broecker was allowed to
borrow the tractor on Sept. 21, 2014 for exhibition. It has not been
A letter was sent by the JPHS in December 2015 demanding the
return of the tractor. The complaint alleges the defendants ...are exercising unlawful dominion over the property by not returning it.
Bechtol allegedly claims to have a mechanics lien on the tractor
and ...has refused to cooperate in the return of said tractor.
The tractors value at the time it was borrowed by the family, is
$30,000. The suit against them is requesting the tractors return or
$30,000 plus interest from the date it was borrowed.

Why messy can be good Jr. fair livestock, feeder

a penny

for your Thoughts

By Nancy Whitaker

collect during your travels.

Sometimes youll find months
old fast food bags.
Other times you may find
the phone charger that you
bought and thought that you
immediately lost. No matter
what you find, its probably
in your car, and its probably
buried under heaps of other
Messy people arent dumb:
they realize that it takes time
to clean up after themselves
and are saving those precious
minutes and hours to do with
as they please. Maybe they
can spend another hour in bed.
Maybe they can watch some
news on TV.Either way, its
more important than cleaning and who is going to stop
whatever they are doing to
pick up socks off the floor
OK, granted no one is going
to look at your messy room
and say, Wow, how stylish!
But keeping the door shut and
the mess hidden may get you
through for another month.
Still, messy is becoming
more fashion forward and as

more people lose motivation

to remain crisp and clean in
all facets of life, messy living
will only become more and
more embraced. Messy wardrobe and messy hair today;
messy room and messy house
Sometimes it is socially
correct to be messy, especially
when you are eating hot wings
or juicy barbecuedribs. Well,
they just would not taste good
without them dripping down
our arms.
A lot of the dress styles are
now messier and you can pay
over $50 for a pair of jeans
which are made to look faded
and old. We can get our hair
cut in messy styles. There are
some hair cuts which are really becoming which are actually cut to give you that wind
blown look.
Personally, I hate to clean
out my messy purse. Even
though it has expired coupons, receipts, three tubes of
lipstick, mints, old gum and a
left over sandwich, I still dont
like ridding it out because then
I cannot find anything.
If something gets left on the
floor or buried beneath clothing, when its found again, its
almost like its brand new and
you just got it! And have you
ever done laundry and find
some money in an unchecked
pocket? I have done this with
coats and sweaters and usually
thank God for a blessing.
So being messy doesnt
mean you are dirty, and does
have advantages. Messy people tend to be more laid back
and here is a thought, If you
are messy, dont worry, just be
happy and enjoy your stuff.

Council to seek legal action

PAULDING Paulding Village Council is seeking potential
litigation procedures in regard to
the lagoon mixers that have not
been operational since September
Councilwoman Barb Rife
reported at the council meeting
Monday, June 6, that Jones &
Henry Engineering has been unresponsive to phone calls and has
not been helpful in resolving the
problems with the lagoon mixers.
Council has notified village solicitor Mike Jones regarding the
wish to seek legal action on the
lagoon pumps.
Schweller Electric is currently
working to retrofit the PLT that
will allow the mixers to work.
The lagoon mixers must be operational by July 1 as mandated in
the agreement with the OPEA.
Mayor Greg Reinhart recommended to the council that
Rylee S. Carlisle be employed
as a full-time police officer with
the Paulding Police Department
starting June 11. Carlisle had
been employed with the Paulding
Police Department as a part-time
officer since June of 2015.
The council unanimously approved the motion to employee
Carlisle as a full-time officer.
Councilman Tim Boss reported that the recreation committee
met with Peggy Emerson from
the Paulding Chamber of Commerce and the Leadership In Action (LIA) group regarding the
skateboard park project. The LIA
had been raising funds to make
repairs to the skateboard park and
had approached council on May
16 requesting that the village
match funds to help pay for the
Boss reported that the LIA has
since changed the scope of its
project, received quotes for lower
cost and is continuing to fundraise. Boss stated that at this time
no action is needed until fundraising is complete, at which time the
committee will meet with LIA to
decide what action, if any, needs
to be taken.
Boss also reported that the village swimming pool did open last
Tuesday. The recreation committee has set group rates for normal

pool hours at $2 per person for

30-50 people, and $1 per person
for 60-99 people.
If the group is over 99 people,
the pool must be rented for $105.
Boss was unclear at this time how
many hours that rental included.
These prices do not include the
use of the slide; an additional fee
will be charged for the use of the
The council voted unanimously to approve these group rates.
Alan Kohart was present on
behalf of Paulding Putnam Electric Cooperative seeking approval
on the application for a building
certificate to build a 195-foot
communications tower on McDonald Pike. The 195-foot tower
is a free-standing tower and will
not require any guide wires. The
tower will provide communications to substations and vehicles.

to the council for approval. Councilman Dan Workman moved to
approve the building certificate
application and was followed by
a unanimous approval from the
Work will begin on this tower
next month and is projected to be
completed in August.
When the council was asked
about a sinkhole reported in the
300 block of West Perry Street
last week, Reinhart stated that
was the area where sewer work
has been completed. He went on
to say that the the area has been
filled with gravel and is in the
process of being fixed. Rife said,
Its not a sinkhole. Sinkholes are
a natural occurrence and this is

One of the things you always want kids to do, and

even reward them to do, is
to clean their rooms. Lots of
times, my kids would hurriedly throw everything in a closet
and shut the door. I had three
girls and one son and the son,
believe it or not, was the one
who always had a clean room.
A clean uncluttered home is
great, but have you ever noticed how much stuff you
can collect through the years?
I think that sometimes a mess
can be good especially if we
are looking for something.
You just know the item you
want is probably in that messy
area of the house.
So, say you need the green
shirt that you wore three days
ago, a history book and your
power drill. In most households,
youd begoing in three different directions to look for these
items. In a messy household,
theres a good likelihood all of
those things will be piled on top
of a futon or chair that serves as
the current events desk.
Messy may be messy but it
isnt necessarily disorganized,
but whybother rifling through
your closet or your drawers
when there are only worn
once garments littering the
floor of your room? Jump out
of bed, grab the first garments
you see as you groggily get up
and throw them on for another
day of barely functional living! I am really not encouraging someone to keep a messy
home or room, but just thinking of a few advantages to being messy.
Cars are great for transportation and also for storing all
of the trash and items that you

Bluffton 1st, PHS 7th in
Panthers sweep Van Wert NWC Bachman Award
ACME Baseball

DHI Media Sports Writer
Wert Cougars welcomed the
Paulding Panthers to Russell
Fisher field at Smiley Park for
a twin billing of ACME baseball on Thursday night. The
Panthers picked up a 2-1 victory in game one and Paulding used a big seventh inning
to sweep the series, winning
12-6 in game two.
Game one was a classic
pitchers duel as Caleb Fetzer
took the rubber for Van Wert
and Preston Johanns started
for Paulding. Both pitchers
held the other team scoreless
for the initial three innings.
In the top of the fourth,
Johanns led the frame off
with a double to right field
and Cade McGarvey would
bring Johanns home w ith an
RBI single to give Paulding a
1-0 lead.
Van Wert countered in
the bottom of the fourth as
Lawson Blackmore walked
and stole second base before
scoring on an RBI single off
the bat of Connor Army to tie
the game at 1-1.
The Panthers led off the
top of the fifth with a walk
from Lupe Martinez. The
next batter, Jaret Miller, laid
down a bunt to put Martinez
in scoring position. After a
passed ball moved Martinez
just 90 feet from home plate,
Cameron Doster hit a deep
fly ball to centerfield which
Van Wert centerfielder John
Lee caught and Martinez
raced home to give the Panthers back the lead at 2-1.
In game two of the doubleheader, the Panthers got
their offense going in the
third frame with two outs as
Doster tripled and Johanns
singled to plate the games
first run. Paulding scored two

more runs, in part due to two

errors by the Van Wert outfield, to make it 3-0 Paulding.
The Panthers added another run in the top of the fifth
as James Mourey singled and
Doster also singled to put two
runners on before Cole Heller
singled to make it 4-0.
The Cougars rallied to
take the lead in the bottom
of the fifth as Nick Gutierrez, Fetzer and Blackmore
all picked up RBIs as the Van
Wert took a 5-4 lead in the
fifth. The frame started with
Cade Chiles and Darius Eddins reaching base on a walk
and single, respectively. Lee,
Fetzer and Blackmore all singled and later score runs in
the bottom of the fifth.
The Panthers tied the game
in the top of the sixth, and
with two outs, Martinez and
Mourey both walked before
Doster drove in a run with an
RBI base knock.
With the game tied at 5-5 in
the seventh, Paulding sent 11
batters to the plate and scored
seven runs with three runs
scoring on passed balls and
wild pitches from Van Wert.
Paulding would also get an
RBI single from Johanns
and a RBI double from Caleb
We are a young team with
some veterans and in that second game in our big inning we
were able to put some balls in
play. We also worked a couple
walks and then took advantage of some passed balls by
Van Wert, Paulding coach
Scott Shull said.
Van Wert went into the
bottom of the seventh down
12-5 and the Cougars didnt
hang their heads as Gutierrez led the frame off with a
triple. Gutierrez would dent
the plate on a passed ball by
Paulding to cut the Panther

lead to 12-6.
We got a lot of turnovers
and a lot of young inexperienced guys who are going to
take some time getting used
to playing varsity baseball,
Van Wert coach Todd Dunlap
said. Caleb hasnt thrown in
a month, so he was shaking
off a little rust but he battled
through the first game.
After the doubleheader,
Van Wert drops to 1-2 on the
summer and Paulding improves to 2-0 on the season.

Bluffton won the Northwest Conference

2015-16 Don Bachman Award of Excellence
for the second time with a number of high finishes in conference standings throughout the
year. The award recognizes the school in the

sports and scholastic bowl competition.
The Pirates compiled a total of 75.5 points

events. On Saturday, Goings finished fourth in the
100 dash, seventh in the 200 dash and third in the
400 relay.
Charlie Warnimont/DHI Media

Monique Goings had a banner day at the state track meet in

three times. In the 100 Goings finished fourth (12.59) as she battles
Olivia Brewer from Mount Gilead who finished third (12.45).

Beck unanimous choice as Player of the Year

PAULDING Paulding County softball coaches recently voted on the 2016 Paulding County
Progress and Welch Trophy Player of the Year
with Panther senior Kelsey Beck being a unanimous selection to the honor.
Beck topped the county in all of the major offensive statistical categories and led the Panthers
to a regional berth in Division III. The Panther
catcher was the only Paulding County player to
bat over .500, finishing the year hitting .539 for
the maroon-and-white.
Kelsey was a great senior leader for us this
season, commented Panther head coach Matt
Carr. She did a tremendous job showing our
players how to compete and be successful during
our tournament run.
Beck also led the county in runs scored (33),
doubles (13), triples (2) and runs batted in (20).
The Panther catcher also hit five home runs and
had 33 hits on the year, leading the Panthers to a
record of 13-10 overall and 4-4 in the Northwest
She led us in about every offensive category,
Carr continued, but she was also our best defensive player. She basically was able to eliminate
opponents running games with her arm and did
a great job blocking everything behind the plate.
The biggest thing about Kelsey, though, was that
she is a great student-athlete who has a great work
ethic. She was a big part of helping us to be successful as a team this year, which was the most
important thing to her.

the maroon-and-white. She finished fourth on the
squad with a .339 batting average and posted five

.385 batting average and added five runs scored,
a triple and five runs batted in.
Callie Perry was second on the Archers in
batting average, hitting .365, and scored eight
times while driving in six runs. Perry also topped
the blue-and-white with four doubles, helping to
lead Antwerp to a 6-10 overall record while the
Archers were 1-6 in the Green Meadows Conference.
Avery Braaten tossed 96 innings on the
mound for Antwerp, striking out 63 hitters while
finishing with a 4.08 earned run average. At the
plate, Braaten hit .255 and topped the Archers

triple. She also drove in seven runs for the blueand-white and posted a .245 batting average.

For 25 years Meriwether has carried it on No danger from

PAULDING Pastor David

Meriwether of the First Presbyterian Church in Paulding will
be commemorating 25 years of
continuing service to the church
on Sunday, June 12 with an informal open house from 1-3 p.m.
at the church, outside, weather
permitting. It is also his 60th
The celebration is being cohosted by the Cecil Presbyterian
Church where Meriwether has
been the part-time stated supply
minister since 1999.
My sister Margaret recently
told me, Dave, youve carried it
on, and that really means a lot to
me, said Pastor Meriwether.
Their father Roger had been a
Presbyterian minister, also.
My dads last year was my
first year, Meriwether explains,
pointing to a nameplate that
reads Pastor Meriwether and
rests atop his office doorframe.
That was actually my dads. He
gave it to me when he retired.
Meriwether explains that becoming a pastor had been an unlikely career choice for both he
and his father. David grew up in
his fathers church, Emmanuel
Presbyterian, in Thousand Oaks,
Calif. and became a serious
Christian at age 17. But because
he had an intense fear of public
speaking, he didnt think about
being a minister.
Then at the age of 23, God
changed me instantly, Meriwether says, and he had a sudden
desire to preach.
His father, Roger, had taken
an aptitude test in college revealing that the one career he could
rule out was being a minister.
In 1988, Dave earned his
master of divinity from Fuller
Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif., where his dad had
attended in the mid-1950s. He
preached his first sermon at the
Paulding church on June 16,
I had just turned 35 on the
four-day drive on the way out
from California, he recalls.
Meriwether laughs now about
his early days as a minister.
I was completely clueless,
very nave. On an early visit to
an elderly member of the congregation, the young pastor called
her by her first name. She told
me that she was old enough to be
my grandmother and instructed
me to address her as Mrs. Soand-so.

Meriwether recalls some of

the memorable events in his
more than two decades at the
church: hosting TGIF, a marriage conference, and the ice
cream tent during John Paulding
Days; participating in the community choir festivals; sharing
VBS with other churches; starting praise singing before worship and the prayer group that
meets on Thursday evenings;
hosting a small group ministry
in his home with his wife Patty,
and celebrating the churchs
125th anniversary in 2000 with a
flower show, an evening service,
and the addition of the churchs
Another highlight for him was
the building of the churchs fellowship hall early in his tenure.
The planning for the addition
was well underway by the time
Meriwether filled the pulpit, but
the fruits of that vision have been
fulfilled with a space that is wellused by the church and the community.
Meriwether explains how his
sermon preparation has changed
over time. At first, I wrote out
all of my sermons and read
them, he says. Now, he writes
about seven minutes worth of
words for a 20-minute sermon,
and speaks from his notes.
Over the years I have emphasized the importance of prayer,
openness to the Holy Spirit and
the identity of the believer as a
member of the Kingdom of God
and a representative of Jesus in
the community.
He enjoys being with and
working with people, and his
approach has changed over the
I was very much a people
pleaser, afraid of offending people and overly concerned with
what people thought of me,
Meriwether says of his early
days of being a pastor, but the
Lord has convicted me that that
was a sin.
Meriwether recalls the privilege of speaking at two funerals of church members who
died young. While the deaths of
Lara Punches and Randy Bussing were tragic, their families
wanted the tones of their funerals to be celebratory, and their
services were a big blessing for
the church.
Describing himself as an
extremely loyal person, Meriwether says that one of the hard-

recent algal bloom

Sunday will be a special day for Pastor David Meriwether. The

Paulding First Presbyterian minister will celebrate 25 years of pastoral ministry at the local church. He will also be celebrating his 60th
birthday. An open house is planned from 1-3 p.m. at the church.
est things about being a preacher
is losing the people with whom
he has developed close relationships - not just members of his
congregation, but other ministers
in the community as well who
have left to fill pulpits in other
Two positive changes that
have taken place during his tenure are both technology related,
he says. Computer and email
have greatly improved his ability
to communicate with the congregation, and the video screens in
the sanctuary and the fellowship
hall which were largely purchased from a fund in memory
of Randy Bussing - have enhanced services.
An active member of the
Paulding Kiwanis Club and the
Paulding Ministerial Association, Meriwether also takes a

He has also served as community spiritual director for both the

Another tribute to caregivers

Caregiving is something
that has never been far from
my sight. We would sometimes
share in the responsibility of
caring for the brother of my
best friend who had an autistic brother. I saw the sacrifice
of my buddys mother and ultimately of my friend who retired from school teaching early in his career to care for his
brother 24-7 hours for 10 years
after his mother passed.
It was something we always
did around our place; I didnt
know any different. When my
Grandma Langham was dying
of cancer in her Woodburn
home, my mother stayed with
her for the last six months of
her life. My father and I would
drive back and forth on weekends and visit my mother and
support her for her godly care
of Grandma.
On my mothers side of the
family, my Grandma Cook
always lived with us because
she couldnt care for herself.
Surely one of the most heartfelt lessons in my own life was
pouring out a heart of love for a
mother with dementia after my

father passed.
Recently, we moved Joyces
stepmother from New Jersey to
Indiana, where the first surprise
waiting for us was that of colon
cancer embedded within her.
So everyone has rallied a
round Grandma Mary Ann.
As daughter Sandi refers to us,
we are now Team Langham.
When I attend events where
caregiving is the emphasis,
sometimes I look at those walking around the track at Relay
For Life, walking for fatal ill-

nesses or collecting money for

chronic illnesses such as multiple sclerosis or muscular dystrophy and I visualize all of the
caregiving going on behind the
scenes in love of loved ones.
I knew of a dear lady who,
for many years, assisted her
husband in dressing before
they went to church or occasionally went out for a meal. I
think of those who administer
and change bandages, wake
up hourly every night to assist
with IVs or reach out in personal sacrifice for the greater
comfort of others.
From my heart I salute caregivers on behalf of loved ones,
friends or career options such
as home health care or other
And then there are those
who draw from unbelievable
strength and power found in
such Bible verses as, Honor
your father and your mother,
that your day may be long in
the land that the Lord your God
is giving you (Exodus 20:12)
and Even in your old age I am
He, and to gray hairs I will carry you. (Isaiah 46:4)

In his free time, Meriwether enjoys hanging out in his hammock,
drinking strong coffee, watching

poetry, which he describes as a
way of looking at ordinary things
in a non-ordinary way. He can

Feature Writer
Ohio State University Extension director Sarah Noggle
saidon Monday that she doesnt
foresee any dangers to Paulding
County residents or animals as
a result of harmful algal bloom
discovered in the Maumee River near Defiance last week. As
a result of the discovery, Defiancecity and county officials issued a recreational public health
What they issued over there
(Defiance County) was more of
a precaution for swimming when
they noticed some elevated levels, said Noggle. This also pertained to pregnant women, young
children and the elderly.
Levels were not anything that
were a drinking threat, continued Noggle. What they were
isolatingwas parts per billion,
which was really minimal.
Noggle said thatweekend
rains will change the reading to
someextent. She noted that light

rain would modify the readings

while areas where there was heavy
rain draining off of land might
cause the levels of algae to rise.
Even where there was heavier
rain, there shouldnt be much of
a problem, continued Noggle.
The ground was dry enough that
it should have soaked in much of
the rain.
Noggle said the most possible
way algae blooms could ever affect Paulding County would be if
they formed in Indianaand floated into Ohio.
The river is so shallow around
Antwerp that I dont see algae
as that much of a threat, noted
Noggle. I dont think there is
anything for us to worry about. I
dont ever see the Defiance event
as becoming a threat.
A statement from the Defiance
County Health Commissioners
noted that anyone swimming in
the Maumee River who is noting hives, rashes, severe nausea,
vomiting or abdominal pain
should seek immediate treatment.

Paulding FFA to host

event at the fair
By Kathlynn Fuller
FFA Reporter
PAULDING The Paulding
FFA members will be implementing a program during the
2016 Paulding County Fair titled
Flowers and Friends.
During the past school year,
students learned about running a retail nursery operation
in the school greenhouse. The
greenhouse, built in 2007 by the
Paulding FFA Alumni, has been
in operation each spring and has
served as an educational experience each year.
This year is no exception. The
greenhouse was packed with
over 10,000 plants this spring and
members worked tirelessly preparing for the public sale. Plant
quality was exceptional and the
community support was great, as
well. Now that school is over, the
Paulding FFA members would
like to share some of their greenhouse goods.

Each day during the Paulding

County Fair, plants will be available for a free will donation, but
there is a catch. Each person making a donation will need to take a
few extra plants to give to a friend
or neighbor to brighten their day.
A limited supply of plants will
be made available each weekday
of the fair from 4-5 p.m. and on
Saturday from 9-10 a.m., while
supplies last.
Different varieties will be
available each day of the fair, so
the community may stop out each
day for different plants. All plants
will be available outside the FFA
sausage stand at the fairgrounds.
The FFA members had a very
successful plant sale, due to the
great support of the community,
and they are excited to host this
opportunity to share some of their
flowers, herbs and vegetables.
Be sure to stop out to see what
is available and participate in the
Flowers and Friends event.

Weekend rains give shot

in arm to area crops

Feature Writer
PAULDING As fluctuating as they were,
weekend rains that moved over Paulding County
on Saturday brought good benefit to many area
crops that were just starting to feel the effect of recent dry weather. Ohio State Extension Educator
Sarah Nogglesaid that rain reports ranged from
a little over a tenth of an inch in the Melrose area
toover two inches outside of Antwerp.
It was all over the board, said Noggle. Overall, I would like to think that it was quite beneficial in many places.
One of Noggles biggest concerns is that of early planted beans which could have taken a nip
from light frost a couple of weeks ago.
It appears that some of those had frost damage,
observed Noggle. Later beans that had the heat
emerged faster and are looking pretty good.
Noggle said that it appears that 90 to 95 percent
of the beans have been planted.
It appeared that there were still a few fields last
week where people were trying to get their beans
in, observed Noggle. Overall, the rain was a
good event. We were starting to get dry and needed the rain.
Noggle said that some of the earlier corn didnt

have moisture for emergence.

Hopefully, the rain didnt crust everything
over, Noggle said. There is some good looking
corn out there. We need to wait a little bit and see
how it plays out. Its going to take a little patience
to see where we are on it.
The educator said there was concern about
wheat that appeared to be somewhat diseased early on. Currently everything is headed out and we
are in the flowering stage.
Now is the time to get out and look for head
scab, observed Noggle.
One other item of concern is the emerging large
bee swarms in parts of the county.
If you run across a bee swarm, dont try to get
rid of it, pointed out Noggle. Call the Extension
office. There are people in the county and outside the county that can protect these hives. We
want to protect the pollinators.

Campus Notes

Im not sure who had more fun planting the garden Hannah or Mimi.

Passing on the love of gardening

I come from a family of gardeners. My mom has gardened
for as long as I can remember,
and my grandma before her.
I didnt really learn to enjoy it
until later in life, but here I am,
making up for lost time.
It was not quite four years
ago that I wrote a column here,
announcing the birth of our first
grandchild, Hannah. It was (and
is) my desire to inspire a love
of gardening (or at least an appreciation of it) in her and our
other two grandkids that were
born later.
The key word here is inspire. Gardening isnt something I want to insist that they
do, because we all know how
that goes when it comes to kids.
I want them to enjoy it. Maybe
they will and maybe they wont.
But I think its important to
expose them to those things that
can enrich their lives in ways
that they may not see at the
time, but will understand later.
Sometimes much later. (I was
47 when I began gardening in
So a few weeks ago, I started
to talk to Hannah about something we were going to do at
Mimi and Paw Paws house.
Knowing how much she loves
being outside here, and the joy
she experiences when we walk
(and sometimes run) through
the garden, I asked her if she
would like to have a garden of
her own.
Her eyes got big and she took

In the Garden

By Kylee Baumle

in a big breath of air (shes dramatic like that) and said, Yes,
Mimi! Thank you! Thats Hannah. Always thanking you when
you tell her what youre going
to do and then again when you
do it.
Memorial Day weekend was
perfect garden planting weather.
Paw Paw and Uncle Adam put
together a 4 x 4 raised bed, dug
out the sod, and added soil to
what would become Hannahs
Hannah arrived later in the
day, and after a picnic and some
swimming, I asked her if she
was ready to plant her garden. I
thought maybe she would be too
tired or might have even lost enthusiasm for the idea altogether,
but she was up for it and off we
She listened patiently as I explained how to dig the hole with

a trowel and put the little plants

in, and then she proceeded to do
it herself. I showed her how to
pat the soil around them, and it
touched my heart watching her
gently tuck them in.
We uncovered an earthworm
in the process, and there was
another lesson, all about how
worms are important, not yucky.
Next, we took a couple of
packets of seeds and planted
those. She followed my instructions to the letter. When it came
time to water the garden, the
watering can was almost more
than she could handle, but she
insisted on filling it with the
hose herself and sprinkling the
water on her newly planted bed.
She knows that there are
things to be done to take good
care of plants and I promised
her I would water it until shes
able to visit again and do it herself. Ill keep the big weeds out
and save some little ones for her
to pull so that she can experience that, too.
Will this make a gardener
out of Hannah one day? I dont
know, but we did make a memory, and maybe later when shes
much older, well both look
back on the day we planted
Hannahs Garden and smile.

Paulding County Fair begins June 13

Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING Summer time! For
many its that time of year when folks,
both young and old, focus on the county fair. This year, the Paulding County Fair kicks off on Monday, June 13,
with livestock arrival and weigh-in
taking place on Sunday the 12th.
Again, the Paulding County Fair
has the distinction of being the Buckeye states first fair of the summer season the summer season.
As usual, the fairgrounds has been
a place of activities and improvements, according to board president
Larry Colley.
Its exciting here. Lots going on
and improvements being made. The
last few weeks have brought many
people together in order to make the
fair a great experience for everyone to
enjoy, said Colley.
Changes have been made that
might not be noticed by the casual fair
goer, but some projects will make a
difference in the long run.
The grandstands continue to be
a facility the fair board wants to improve.
We have poured 30 yards of concrete in the grandstand area and we
have eliminated the steps. With ramps
instead of steps to maneuver, we have
made it handicapped accessible with
the facility being wheelchair friendly.
Another improvement is 1,250
feet of drainage tile installed in the
riding area and the addition of 25 new
stalls with proper gates at the horse
barn to increase the number of stalls
to 75.
With infrastructure changes such
as improved drainage, restroom sewer
lines, as well as grandstand improvements, the fairgrounds continues to
be a work in progress. The fair board
works closely with community businesses to offer the best possible county
We do a lot of the work here at
the fair grounds with volunteer labor.
We are also blessed with many of our
project supplies being donated. The
businesses who see the importance
of the fair have been very generous in
not only their overall support but with
donations. Many of the improvements
we do could not be done without their
help, said Colley.
Like last year, live streaming of the
livestock shows will continue.
Last year, for the first time, the
fair provided an ATM machine and
will again do so this year. For the convenience of those attending the fair,
the bank machine will be located in
the Extension building, said Colley.

Jr. Fair Queen & King to be crowned June 13

The 2016 Junior Fair Queen

and King will select its
winner from a group of four
young men.
The Junior Fair coronation
ceremony will be held at 7
p.m. Monday, June 13 in the
grandstand area.
Luke Jackson is the son of
Philip and Stacy Jackson of
Cecil. Luke is a graduate of
Paulding High School. He is
a member of Paulding FFA,
Boy Scout Troop 315 and
vice president of Paulding
County Junior Fair Board.
Luke will be attending University of Northwestern Ohio
where he will be studying ag
equipment technology and
continue farming for a local
farmer. He will promote the
Junior Fair by attending as
many activities as he possibly
can. Luke will also enforce
the dress code by being a role
model and dressing appropriately. He also believes the
most important role of king is
being a role model to younger
Joseph Schmidt is the son
of Jay and Jodie Schmidt of
Payne. Joseph will be a senior this year at Wayne Trace
High School. He is a member of Blue Ribbon Workers
4-H Club, Wayne Trace FFA,
Boy Scout Troop 137 and
the National Honor Society.
After high school, Joe plans
to study musical theatre and
make it to the big stage. He
would have never chosen to
pursue this dream if it wasnt
for 4-H and FFA helping him
to pursue big goals and to
dream big.
He will promote the Junior
Fair by encouraging youth to
give back to the fair. If chosen
for King, he will visit other
fairs and work with the fair
boards to come up with new
ideas for the Paulding County
Austin Howell is the son
of Dan and Deb Howell of
Paulding. Austin will be a junior at Paulding High School.
He is a member of the Flat
Rock Junior Farmers, Paulding FFA and Junior Leaders
4-H Club.
After high school, Austin
plans on becoming a law enforcement officer and eventu-

ally become a D.A.R.E. officer. He has been influenced in

many ways through involvement in 4-H by making sure
everyone gets treated fairly
and that everyone gets a say.
He would promote Junior Fair
by getting the public aware of
what the fair and 4-H has to
offer to help the community.
Tanner Cook is the son
of Eric and Dawn Cook of
Payne. Tanner will be a senior
at Vantage Career Center. He
is a member of 5H 4-H Saddle Club, Wayne Trace FFA
and Paulding County Junior
Fair board.
After high school, Tanner
plans to be an industrial mechanic at a factory. His participation in youth organizations
has taught him to approach
someone in a positive manner
and how to be a good listener. Tanner says it would be a
great honor to be selected as
a part of the Paulding County fair court and it would be
a great way to promote agriculture among his peers
and to younger generations.
He wants to show kids of all
ages that Junior Fair is a great
opportunity to help them
succeed and become leaders, whether they live in the
country or in the city, there is
something for everyone.
Kacey Reinhart is the
daughter of Rick and Heidi
Reinhart of Payne. Kacey will
be a senior at Wayne Trace
High School. She is a member of Blue Ribbon Workers
4-H Club, Wayne Trace FFA
and Payne Girl Scouts.
After high school, Kacey
plans to be a nurse or doctor
in the OB unit, delivering
babies. She would like to attend Bowling Green State
University or The Ohio State
University. Her participation
in FFA and 4-H has allowed
her to come out of her shell
and her communication skills
have improved greatly. Most
importantly, she has learned
how important it is to give
back to the community.
If chosen for the Paulding
County Junior Fair Court, she
would promote the fair and
would do this by attending
other county fairs in Ohio and
let others know how much
fun the fair really can be.
Estee Miller is the daughter

of Mike and Deedi Miller of

Oakwood. Estee will be a senior at Paulding High School
this fall. She is a member
of Brown Betty and Buster
Browns 4-H Club, Paulding
FFA and Junior Leaders.
Estee has not yet decided upon her plans after high
school. She has always been
interested in teaching and
through her ag classes has
become more interested in
going into something agriculturally related. Her participation in FFA and 4-H has
influenced her goals greatly
as these organizations have
taught her how much she
loves working with kids.
If chosen for the Paulding
County Junior Fair Court, it
would be an honor to be the
representative for Paulding
County Junior Fair. Being
able to represent Paulding
County would be such a great
experience and she would
help to encourage other youth
to get involved with the fair.
Katlynn Fuller is the
daughter of Brad Fuller and
Jamie Clemens of Paulding.
Katlynn will be a senior at
Paulding High School this
fall. She is a member of
Broughton Busy Bees, Paulding FFA and Paulding County
Junior Fair Board.
After high school, she
plans to attend The Ohio
State University ATI in
Wooster and transfer to The
Ohio State University main
campus where she will major
in Extension education. After
college, she plans to be on the
Paulding Senior Fair Board
and a Paulding FFA Alumni
member. Through 4-H and
FFA, she has grown a passion
for agriculture and young
childrens education. Seeing
her advisors and older peers
growing up and looking up to
them has helped her to find
her own strengths.
If she is chosen for the
Paulding County Fair Court,
she would be a role model to
younger members. Katlynn
would promote the fair by
using her title to influence
younger members to get involved and explore their opportunities. She will spark
conversations with younger
members and help them in
any way she can.
Megan Reineck is the

Proud Supporter of
The Paulding County Fair
Stop in for

these sp

daughter of Matt and Linda

Reineck of Paulding. Megan
is a 2016 graduate of Paulding High School and is a
member of Happy Bunch 4-H
Club. She will be attending
the University of Findlay to
obtain a doctorate in pharmacy with plans to become a
hospital pharmacist.
4-H has given her the confidence to take on such a demanding major and it has
also given her a love for her
community and a passion for
helping people around her,
which is why she wants to
work in a hospital, so she can
continue to give back to her
community and its members.
If she is chosen for the
Paulding County Fair Court,
she would use her personal
experiences and love for the
fair to help spread the news
about the fair throughout the
community. Megan would
promote the fair by using her
personal experiences to be
a positive source for people
who think that you have to
just see the animals when you
go to the fair, because there is
really a lot more to see and do
for all different types of people.
Autumn Banks is the
daughter of Travis and Summer Banks of Paulding.
Autumn will be a junior at
Wayne Trace High School
this fall and is a member of
the 5H 4-H Saddle Club. After high school, she would
like to attend The Ohio State
University and major in nursing.
Her participation in 4-H
has raised her confidence level and has made her a better
public speaker and more outgoing which will help her in
life when she has to talk with
patients and their families. If
she was chosen for the Paulding County Fair Court, she
would help promote the fair
by telling all her family and
friends what a great place it
is to visit and what wonderful
memories she has made.
Jowaine Grimes is the
daughter of Marty and Michelle Grimes of Defiance.
Jowaine is a 2016 graduate
of Paulding High School.
Jowaine is a member of
Brown Bettys and Buster
Browns 4-H Club. She plans
to attend the University of
Findlay, majoring in pre-vet
after completing her veterinary schooling. Jowaine
wants to become an equine
dentist and practice in this area.
Showing animals in 4-H has
allowed her to learn the importance of veterinarians.
Jowaine sees the Paulding
County Fair Court as being an
example for the younger 4-H
members. To promote the Junior Fair, she would like to go
into the elementary schools
trying to get the younger children involved.

Five vie for Outstanding Livestocker

Five young people have

submitted applications for the
honor of being named the 2016
Outstanding Livestocker.
Winner of this years contest
will be announced during the
Showman of Showman competition, which begins at 4 p.m.
Friday, June 17, in the show arena.
Competing for the honor of
Junior Fair Outstanding Livestocker are Jared Sukup, Alexis
Howell, Jowaine Grimes, Megan Reineck and Joshua Sukup.
The Outstanding Livestocker Award is for youth in 4-H
or FFA who have experience
in an animal project for at least
two years. The youth submit an
application and complete an interview.
Interviews were conducted
by the Paulding County 4-H
Advisory Council.
As a part of the interview
process, the prospects had to
answer two questions.
First, nearly one percent
of all cattle, sheep and swine
produced in the United States
are marketed through youth
livestock shows. This is a significant quantity of animals
entering the food chain. What
is your role in both caring for
animals and producing a safe
and wholesome product?
The second question for the
candidates was: A younger Junior Fair member is thinking
about showing livestock at the
fair next year, but they are not
sure of what they want to show.
What words of wisdom and
help would you offer them being an older member who has
shown livestock?
The candidates competing this year for Outstanding
Livestocker make up a group
of quality young people who
represent Paulding County in
a positive way. Their leadership skills and values are what
makes the Paulding County fair
an outstanding event and another way to support those who are
making a difference.
Jared Sukup is the son
of Steve and Chris Sukup of
Paulding. He is a freshman at
Antwerp High School and a
member of the Doe-C-Doe 4-H
Club where he has been the club
treasurer. His livestock projects include market steers, beef
feeders and market hogs. After
school, Jared would like to farm,
raise and show cattle. Jareds
community service projects

include cleaning the Cecil Fire

Station, the fairgrounds, Antwerp Park, Antwerp Fire Station and his church. Other community service projects include
Christmas for Kids, landscaping
the Antwerp Youth Center, cutting down trees at Rochester
Park and taking his steers to the
Country Inn.
Jared feels that he has a larger
role in caring for animals by producing a safe and wholesome
product through providing clean
water, proper food and a safe
shelter that keeps the animal
safe and healthy. Identification
and lowering stress is important
so the animals gain weight to
produce a safe and wholesome
Jareds advice to younger Junior Fair members is showing
animals is fun and helps to teach
them skills. He feels the youth
need to determine how much
time, money and space they
have before choosing the animal
they are going to take.
Jowaine Grimes is the
daughter of Marty and Michelle
Grimes. Jowaine is a senior at
the Paulding High School. She is
also a 4-H member in the Brown
Bettys and Buster Browns 4-H
Club and Out of Towners 4-H
Club. Her plans for the future
are to continue school at the
University of Findlay and major
in pre-vet medicine.
After college, she plans to
become an equine chiropractor and equine dentist. Her 4-H
projects have included rabbits,
horses and dogs. Jowaine feels
that taking animals to the fair
is a very rewarding project.
She recommends that younger
members thinking about taking
a livestock project should find
a responsible older member to
help them out with their questions. Her advice to new members taking livestock is to work
with your animal every day.
Livestock projects have
taught her how to administer
EPM treatments to her horse
and help her friends with foaling. Her community service
projects include service boxes
for the military, Christmas display decorating and she has
helped a cancer patient.
Alexis Howell is the daughter of Dan and Deb Howell of
Paulding. She is a graduate of
Paulding High School and has
completed her freshman year of
college at Ohio State. Alexis is
majoring in agricultural educa-

tion and wants to become a high

school agricultural education
instructor after college. Alexis
is a member of the Flatrock Jr.
Farmers 4-H Club, Paulding
FFA, the State 4-H Teen Advisory Council and a past member
the Junior Fair Board. Her projects have been swine, pygmy
goats, market and breeding rabbits. She has served as FFA secretary and president; 4-H president, secretary and treasurer and
FCCLA president.
Her community service
projects have included making
cards for the nursing home, the
Wounded Warriors project,
Kids Against Hunger project,
Pack the Suitcase Program,
where she collected clothes for
foster children, and playing in
the Crippled Childrens basketball games. She has a State FFA
She feels that her role as a
youth livestock producer is to
remember one extremely important thing: if we would not
eat our products ourselves then
how can we expect someone
else to. Livestock production
is an important step in the food
chain and she feels we need to
protect our community by producing the best and safest products.
Her advice to younger livestock producers is to ask questions to your parents, advisors,
county educator and make sure
you are interested in the project
you are taking.
Megan Reineck is the daughter of Matt and Linda Reineck.
Megan is a graduate of Paulding
High School. She is a member
of the Happy Bunch 4-H Club.
Megans plan for the future is attending the University of Findlay and majoring in pharmacy.
After college, she would like to
become a hospital pharmacist
and move back to Paulding.
Her 4-H projects are rabbits
and dairy beef feeders. While in
4-H, she has been a camp counselor, president, vice president
and secretary of her club.
Community service projects
Megan has completed have
included daily bread bags for
the First Presbyterian Church,
Honor Flight, worked at the
local food pantry, cleaned Rochester Cemetery and 4-H Camp
Megan wants to make sure
she raises a wholesome, safe
and well-cared-for animal for
consumers. This includes keep-

Free Friday
Come enjoy the
on Friday, June 17th and enjoy:

ing accurate records of feed,

antibiotics and illnesses the animals may contract.
For first-time livestock producers, Megan feels they need to
know livestock is a big commitment. To decide on which project to take, Megan feels younger
youth should visit different livestock producers to determine if
they could physically handle an
animal. She feels her role as an
older livestock producer is to
encourage youth on their new
journey with livestock. Her best
words of wisdom she could give
any new livestock owner is to
be confident and have plenty of
fun! Thats what its all about.
Joshua Sukup, the son of
Steve and Chris Sukup, is a
member of the Doe-C-Doe 4-H
Club. He attends Antwerp High
School where he is a freshman
and resides in Paulding. He has
served as his 4-H club treasurer.
His livestock projects include
market steers, beef feeders and
market hogs.
After school, Josh would like
to farm, raise show cattle, do bovine AI work or be a feed nutritionist.
Joshs community service
projects include cleaning the
Cecil Fire Station, the fairgrounds, Antwerp Park, Antwerp Fire Station and his church.
Other community service projects include Christmas For Kids,
landscaping the Antwerp Youth
Center, cutting down trees at
Rochester Park and taking his
steers to the Country Inn.
Josh feels that he needs to
ensure his livestock is well
taken care of and not abused
or stressed. A stressed animals
meat is tougher and does not
taste as good. He feels identification of livestock is important
to help you keep good livestock
records. In the end, these practices will help youth achieve the
goal of raising a safe, wholesome product.
Josh would tell a younger
Junior Fair member it is good
that they want to show livestock
at the fair. If the youth has the
space, time and financing, then
they should get the animal they
want. It could be a large or small
livestock, but whichever they
choose they need to work with
the animal so it will act well
at the fair. Finally, he would
remind the youth to have fun
because that is the most important thing to do as a Junior Fair

Minyo from Ohio Ag Net

to visit fair on Tuesday
Ohio Ag Net broadcaster Dale Minyo will be
on the grounds during the Paulding County Fair.
On Tuesday, June 14, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., Dale
and some of the staff from Ohio Ag Net will view
the fair first-hand as they highlight events happening locally, while reporting on the days agriculture news and markets.
As a broadcaster, Minyo starts his day early.
You might say in the middle of the night. It starts
when he get up at 3 a.m. in order to share the agricultural news via Ohio Ag Nets morning programming.
Dale is a very systematic person and has his
morning schedule down to a science. He knows
exactly how long it will take him to prepare and
highlight his planned news for the day, record the
audio, put together the broadcasts, and send out
Digital Dale. He does all of this in the comfort
of his personal studio, a storage room in the basement of his house in Morrow County.
Minyo, who completed his first radio broadcast
in 1995, makes approximately 75 remote visits

around the state each year, much like the one he

will fulfill when he comes to Paulding County.
Dale and his wife, Cynthia, have two boys,
Kyle and Ryan, and most everything centers
around sports. When Dale isnt on the road for
Ohio Ag Net, or helping with a community sporting event, he can often be found in the woods
hunting with his son Ryan.
Not many folks could keep up with Dales
work and personal schedule, but no matter what
is on the agenda for the day, Dale makes the most
of it.
I enjoy that I get to see different people every
day. Dale said. We are helping them tell their
story and no matter where we go, different people
have different stories to tell.
Dale endures a demanding schedule, but after a
quick conversation, it is evident that he loves his
