Park dedication celebrates Monroes legacy


By JIM LANGHAM
Feature Writer
PAULDING The legacy
of one of Pauldings most
beloved residents was forefront on Sept. 30 when the
long-awaited park in his honor
was dedicated at the corner of
Jackson and Main streets,
even as restorative work was
being done on the beautiful
Paulding County Courthouse
across the street.
Marsha Yeutter, director of
Paulding County Senior
Center and chairman of
Paulding
Chamber
of
Commerce, told those present
that if she would be looking
for the perfect definition of a
word for gentleman in the
dictionary, it would be Herb.
Following the ceremony,
Yeutter commented on the estimated crowd of 100 people
that came out on a soggy and
chilly morning to show their
respect to Monroe in the midst
of the dedication.
Just look at that crowd in
weather like this, see how
much they appreciate him,
said Yeutter. He would come
into the senior center every
day except Thursday because
he knew that was a day when
we had liver and onions,
quipped Yeutter. He always
had such a positive attitude
that reflected on to everyone
else.
He was always very personal. On Mondays, he asked
whether or not I had the opportunity to go to church on
Sunday or whether or not our

the speakers was his son, Bob (center). Talking with him after the event were Terry Buehler,
Rhonda Smalley and Marge Roughton.
kids had the chance to come
home, said Yeutter. He was a
genuine, caring person.
Yeutter also lauded the
members of the Paulding High
School band who were present
to play the high school alma
mater and Herbs Song,
written in honor of Monroe.
Yeutter said that she knew

Teachers Association will
hold a dinner meeting at
5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 13

Methodist Church, 321 N.
Williams St., Paulding.
Those planning to attend
are asked to make reservations as soon as possible by
calling Marcia Pressler at
419-587-3651 or Karen
Jacobs at 419-594-2138.
The speaker for the
evening will be Kris
Dobbelaere. Dues for 2015
will be collected. Donations
for the food pantries and the
scholarship fund will be appreciated. All retired teachers are invited to attend.

Ordinance 1485-14 designating


that only one-way motor vehicle traffic shall be permitted westbound on
East George Street between North
Water Street and North Main Street.
Ordinance 1486-14 designating
that only one-way motor vehicle traffic shall be permitted southbound in
the alley beside the new parking lot
between Perry Street and the east-west
cross alley.
Pauldings Trick-or-Treating will be

that Monroe would have been


embarrassed to see his name
on a park, but would have
been thrilled to see the community come together.
Monroes son, Robert, repeated similar sentiments in
referring to his fathers humility, but his desire to see
Paulding together as a happy

community.
The project began as a
dream, but with the help of
two Leadership In Action
classes sponsored by the
Paulding
Chamber
of
Commerce, it became a reality. Paulding Village acquired
the property from the Certified
gas station and then leased it to

the chamber to beautify.


Jane Nice, who recently
published the book Married to
Millie: The Humble Life of
Herb Monroe, was on hand to
make remarks and sign copies
of her book about Pauldings
favored son. Monroe had been
named Ohio Caregiver of the
Year in 1997, an honor bestowed on him for his committed care to his wife through her
journey with Alzheimers disease.
On the jacket of her book,
Nice said, I interviewed Herb
Monroe nearly every Friday
for 10 years to write this book
about his life. Herb was locally famous, not because of his
great achievements, but because he loved people. Every
corner of a room shined
brighter when Herb entered it,
and the light tended to linger
long after he left.
Herb would go crazy if he
knew that we named a park
after him, commented former
chamber director Erika
Willitzer, who helped guide
the journey of the parks construction at the site of the
abandoned Certified Gas
Station
in
downtown
Paulding.
Willitzer said that as she
watched the steps unfold in
putting together the tribute to
Monroe, she could see that
God had ultimate plans to
make things better around
Paulding.

Recorders office digitizes 163 years of deeds

By JOE SHOUSE
Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING - Walking into
the
Paulding
County
Recorders office located on
the main floor of the picturesque Paulding County
Courthouse you will see a relatively small room tucked
away in the northwest corner
of the building. A brightly lit
office where three diligent employees stay busy doing what
their title indicates recording
important documents and
keeping them safe and secure
for future reference when
needed.
One such document that is
popular in the recorders office
is that of various types of
deeds. The recorders office has
been responsible for recording
deeds since 1827.
County Recorder Carol
Temple has worked in the
recorders office for 26 years
and since 2008 as its recorder.
On staff and assisting Carol
are Carolyn Gross, who is a
14-year veteran to the office,
and newcomer Sarah Shuherk,
who has worked in the office
for 1-1/2 years.
As recorder, Temple recognized several years ago the importance of beginning the
process of having the records
in her office recorded in an upto-date fashion. This summer,
a group representing the same
company where Temple purchases all of her computers,
printers and supplies came to
Paulding and spent a week
transferring all of the deed
documents on file from 1827

Joe Shouse/Paulding County Progress

An example of the before and after quality of digitized scanning on one early document
makes it possible to red the handwritten deed from the mid 1880s.
through 1989. Documents
recorded after 1989 were digitally recorded initially and did
not require this type of process
according to Temple.
What happened was quite
amazing. There were four people
from
the
Xerox
Corporation who basically set
up shop here at the courthouse
and they scanned every page
of every recorded deed. They
were here during the summer
and spent nearly a week scanning the pages. We stayed out
of their way and they did a
fantastic job, said Temple,
with laugh.

Sheriffs office receives


over $26,400 in grants

Paulding County Sheriff Jason K. Landers announced Oct. 3


that the Ohio Department of Public Safetys (ODPS) Ohio
Traffic Safety Office (OTSO) awarded $26,417.29 in federal
traffic safety funding to his office for federal fiscal year 2015.
Paulding County Sheriff Office has identified traffic areas
with higher number fatalities and serious traffic injuries
throughout the county. To save lives and improve the quality of
life for local citizens, the sheriffs office will use the grant
funds to participate in several blitz campaigns, including the
Click It or Ticket It and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over
national campaigns.

The purpose of scanning the


pages is to allow them to be
taken to their Dallas, Texas office where they will be digitized. Once they are digitized,
the documents will be computer friendly.
In the future when people
need access to a particular
deed, they will no longer need
to look through the large
heavy cumbersome books, but
they can simply search for
their needed document and reproduce it from the computer
image, said Temple.
A very costly endeavor, the
scanning included 147,184
pages from 248 volumes.
There were four different
styles of volumes that caused
somewhat of a challenge when
scanning. The more difficult
scanning came from the older
81 volumes that where handwritten and bound followed by
the 18 volumes that were
typed and bound. There were
149 volumes that were loose
leaf and could be removed
from their books for easier
scanning.
To help the out-of-statescanners have a better under-

WT board accepts treasurers


retirement resignation
From Staff Reports
HAVILAND Wayne Trace Local School
Board of Education held a special meeting at
6:30 a.m. Friday with only one item on the
agenda. The board unanimously voted to accept the retirement resignation of district treasurer Gary Ginter.
Ginters resignation will be effective Nov.
30.
Superintendent Steve Arnold said in a press
release: Mr. Ginter has made a career decision
to retire from his position as treasurer of Wayne
Trace Local Schools so that he can become a
full-time pastor with his United Methodist
Church in Columbus Grove. The board of education and I wish him well.

MEET

Ginter has been Wayne Trace treasurer for


just under one year. At its November 2013
meeting, the board voted to employ Ginter as
treasurer to begin Dec. 2 and continuing
through July 31, 2016.
Ginter previously had been treasurer for
Western Buckeye Educational Service Center
(WBESC).
In September, Auditor of State Dave Yost
placed Wayne Trace Local Schools on the
unauditable list. During the course of the regular financial audit of the school district for the
period July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014, it
was determined that the conditions of the
school districts financial records were not adequate to complete the audit.

standing of the magnitude of


the job, Shuherk did some
preparation work prior to the
start of the scanning. She
(Sarah) was such a big help.
Sarah went through every vol-

ume, counted every page and


listed those pages that were either bound pages or loose
leaf, said Temple.
The cost for the project including the scanning, tagging,
linking and loading the
scanned images into the land
records system is approximately $255 per volume.
This has been on the back
of my mind for several years. I
knew it would be expensive
and for several years we have
been saving for this, Temple
said. She went on to explain
how the funding was made
available for the project.
Every document that is
recorded has a fee attached to
it. Half the fee goes to
Paulding Countys General
Fund and half goes to the Ohio
Housing Trust fund. From the
countys
portion,
the
recorders office receives $4.
This portion goes into a supplemental equipment fund that
can only be used for computerization. So, with this supplemental equipment fund, we
were able to pay for this muchneeded project, said Temple.
Temple explained that her
office could have purchased

all the needed equipment and


done the project themselves
but instead of taking just a few
days, she estimates that it
would have taken up to three
years.
Having this done will
make our work much easier
for us. We will not need to lift
those heavy books. It will
make it easier for everyone
who comes in searching information, said Gross.
When the Law Library
Resources Board heard of the
project and the fact that many
from the field of law uses the
recorders office, it was this
board who wanted to help
fund the project.
After receiving a positive
opinion from the Attorney
Generals office that it would
be possible to donate a certain
portion of the Law Library
budget to the project, they
were helpful in making a nice
donation to the cause, said
Temple.
As a way to keep the
records secure and in tact,
Xerox is also providing a
16mm microfilm of all the
documents that will be preserved at their facility.

Monroe Community Park, playing a song written for the parks namesake.

Homemade cornbread serves as the foundation for this


delicious layered salad.
impressed. The ears had been
grilled in the husks over the
fire which added a delicious
smoked flavor to a regular cob
of sweet corn.
Wanita Wengerd had
prepared one of my favorite
salads: cornbread salad. Have
you ever heard of corn bread
salad? If you havent you need
to give it a try. Its absolutely
scrumptious. Its made with
cornbread and fresh veggies
from the garden and topped
with cheese, bacon, and a
sauce to moisten everything.
Ill include my favorite recipe
in case you are interested.
After everyone was finished
with the main course several of
us ladies made mountain pies.
We spread cream cheese and
pie filling on a slice of bread
then topped it with another
piece of bread and place it
in a pie iron, sandwich style.
The pie iron is then placed
on hot embers until the bread
is toasted to a golden brown.
After removing the mountain
pie from the iron we spread
powdered sugar on each
side. Mmm, that is always a
delicious campfire treat!
Back to what I mentioned
concerning the tickets we
purchased for the supper.
We purchased them at our
school auction. Every other
year we as a church get
together for an auction. All
the proceeds go to our Amish
school. Everyone is welcome
to bring any items they wish
to donate. Generally theres
a good variety of homemade
items such as clothing, food,
or bigger items like furniture,
a sandbox or a greenhouse.
Its quite interesting to see
what other people come up
with to bring along. Several
sets of certificates for meals
or camp-outs were sold like
the ones we bought to join the
Wengerds for a corn roast.
We paid $23 per plate.
While writing this I had a
little visitor. A hummingbird

flew within several feet from


where I was sitting. Obviously
it was curious what I was up
to and came to investigate. I
enjoy birds but am definitely
partial to hummingbirds. I
never cease to marvel over
their ability to fly backwards,
sideways or however they
choose. Their tiny quarter
sized nests and teeny little
eggs have always intrigued
me as well.
Heres the cornbread salad
recipe. Use your imagination
and make it according to your
taste. I hope youll enjoy it as
much as I already have! This
is really three recipes in one,
but its worth the effort. First,
you make cornbread (if you
dont have a favorite recipe,
I included one), then you
prepare a dressing, and then
top with layers.
CORNBREAD SALAD
Cornbread:
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shortening
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 egg (beaten)
1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Bake at 350. Cool.
Crumble and put half of it in a
9x13 Tupperware.
Dressing:
1-1/2 cup salad dressing
1 cup sour cream
1/2 package Ranch dressing
mix
Mix and spread half of this
dressing over the cornbread.
Then in separate bowls
have all of the following
ingredients prepared:
1/4 cup pinto beans
1-1/2 cup corn
1 cup tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup pepper, chopped
1 cup bacon
1 cup cheese
Spread half of each
ingredient over dressing.
Repeat layers. Refrigerate.
Delicious!

There is an native American quote that states


The day you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.

express their gratitude for everyones support

Special thanks to Dr. Gray and his staff,
Shawn Dooley, Pastor Mike and the

Thank you also to everyone who provided

Hello to all of you!


What a perfect day we are
having! The weather couldnt
be nicer, even if it would
try to improve! Im nestled
in a chair on our new deck
enjoying the birds songs and
other sounds of nature.
Weve had another blessed
week. On Saturday evening
my husband Daniel and I
hopped on our bicycles,
placed Julia in her carrier,
and headed for the Wengerds
where we anticipated a corn
roast. A while ago we had
purchased tickets for this
supper. Perhaps Ill give more
details on that later in this
letter. I had looked forward
to an evening of fellowship
and was curious to find out
what the roasted corn would
be like. Its something I
wasnt very familiar with.
Shortly after arriving at their
house we headed back to the
picnic spot where they had
just completed their grilling.
I glanced around taking it
all in. It was a beautiful fall
evening, the setting was so
perfect, so peaceful. Off to
the right was a little pond with
trees surrounding it. A red
checkered tablecloth covered
the table laden with food that
the Wengerds had prepared
for us.
Other friends who had also
purchased tickets joined in.
We formed a circle around
the fire. Julia was thoroughly
impressed to sit beside Mom
and Daddy on a pink little
camping chair, just her size!
After a word of prayer
and thanks to God we filled
our plates. I was astounded
to see the large selection of
items they had grilled over
the open fire. It all looked
mouthwatering and proved to
be absolutely delicious
First, there were three kinds
of meat to choose from which
included steaks, chicken
breasts and drumsticks. There
were also breads along with
homemade barbecue sauce,
ketchup and pepper mustard
also served. The combination
certainly made for delicious
sandwiches! Diced potatoes
had been marinated and
attractively placed on skewers
and placed on the rack and
grilled until tender. I always
enjoy trying new things so I
was eager to bite into the corn.
Well, this certainly wasnt a
disappointment. In fact, I was

What a strong
library system
can mean

Dear Editor,
Some of my fondest
memories are the times
Mom would take us down
the street to the Bookmobile
and we would bring home
armloads of books to read.
Remember, Mom, sitting on
the front stoop reading them
to us one by one, by one, by
one...?
That is when my love of
books and learning really
began. I have always loved
to read. When my first child
was born, I went to the
library and brought home
stacks of books and read
them aloud to her until she
could read them to me!

Remember, Sweetie, all those


bedtime stories?
Time marches on, but one
thing remains the same. Our
public library is still there to
provide an endless supply
of good books, newspapers,
magazines, DVDs, audio
books for the sight-impaired,
computers for public use,
and so much more! Have you
been to the library lately to
see what they have to offer?
If not, youre missing out on
one of Paulding Countys
most beloved treasures.
I still love to read, and
have joined our Black
Swamp Bookworms reading
group and volunteer my time
to help run Buy the Book
used bookstore in the Library
Annex. Have you been in
to visit us yet? Friends of
the Library help with lots of
special projects at all of our
branch Libraries. Consider
joining your local Friends
group this year.
Please take some time to
evaluate what the Library
services mean to the entire
population of Paulding
County and help support
the system that we have
created and have maintained
for nearly 100 years. It is
such an integral part of rural
America, and it would be a
shame to lose it. Remember,
voters, what a strong
library system can mean for
economic development to
bring new businesses and
jobs to Paulding? Vote YES
on Nov. 4.

Commissioners offer proclamation


supporting United Way
By JIM LANGHAM
Feature Writer
Following a meeting with Paulding County
United Way director Sonya Herber, the Paulding
County commissioners offered a proclamation of
support for the United Way of Paulding County.
We urge residents to participate in the fundraising
campaign in support of the United Way of Paulding
County and its partner agencies, thereby making
ours a more caring and compassionate community
where we all Give. Advocate. Volunteer. Live
United, states the proclamation.
The commissioners feel that the United Way is a
very important part of the community, commented
Commissioner Tony Zartman. We feel that its so
important from the commissioners standpoint to
have this involvement. They offer so many services
that cant be offered in the public arena.
They have a wonderful skill set and experienced
network to make it all happen, noted Commissioner
Roy Klopfenstein. They dont have to go through
all of the bureaucracy that we do on the county
government level.
Herber said that when people approach her with

needs, she always says, Lets see if we can figure


this out. Lets see what we can do to help you.
The commissioners praised the local organization
for advancing the common good and creating
opportunities for a better life for all by focusing on
the three key building blocks of education, income
and health.
The United Way movement creates long lasting
community change by addressing the underlying
cause of problems that prevent progress, said
Klopfenstein.
Herber said that the local agency is constantly
working on ways to help situations where there is
continual need to become more self-sustaining.
We are prepared to help take care of
emergency needs, but in cases where there is
cyclical poverty, we are doing all we can to train
those involved to become more self-sustaining,
said Herber.
We wanted to make the public aware of the
good that comes out of the United Way office and
how it helps our community, said Zartman. The
commissioners back them and we encourage others
to do the same.

All keyed up!


Keys, keys keys. We have
keys for everything. There are
keys to get in the house, start
our cars, mowers, golf carts
and keys to get in the garage.
I really dont like carrying
keys because I can never
find them, especially in my
cluttered purse. By the way,
has anyone ever invented a
remote control beeping key
finder?
I personally have had two
experiences with lost keys
in the past two weeks. Of
course, I only had one set and
they were the only keys to get
in my house.
The first time I lost my
house keys, I had gone to
the Bluffton Street Fair with
my daughter. It was a nice
glorious day and we had fun
playing games and eating.
We got back to my house and
I was going to get my keys
out of my purse to open the
front door. After all, I knew I
put them in that pocket of my
purse.
Oh no! I dug down deep
and no keys. I was on the
back patio and decided to
dump my purse out on the
table. No luck! No keys. How
was I ever going to get in the
house? I only have one set
and if I lost them I was up the
creek without a paddle.
After searching doggedly
for about a half hour, my
daughter finally said, Well
lets try going in the window.
She proceeded to get a ladder
out of the garage, and lifted
up a window and climbed
in. She came around back,
unlocked the door and she
was holding my keys in her
hand. Very calmly she said,
Mother, you never took your
keys, they were right where
you keep them. Oh, did I
feel bad, but we did retrieve

A Penny for
Your Thoughts

By
Nancy Whitaker
my keys.
The other night, I had a
gig in Defiance. When I got
home, it was dark and I started
fishing in my purse for my
keys. I opened my car door so
the lights would stay on and I
mean I looked and looked for
those keys.
I thought, Oh no. Dear
God, please help me, I sure
dont want to lose my keys
again. Well, no luck. Those
important, lousy keys were
missing again. It was getting
late, but I had to call my
daughter, who lives a street
over, to come to my rescue.
When I called her she said,
Oh no. Not again!
I was sobbing, but replied,
I am so sorry, but I lost my
keys and just cant find them
in my purse or in the car.
She arrived within a few
minutes, got out the ladder
and again climbed in a
window. Meanwhile, I was
crying and yelling, I am so
sorry, but your mama just
isnt responsible enough to
handle a set of keys.
After we got in the house,
we looked and looked for
those keys and they were
nowhere to be found. I called

the landlord who didnt have


access to his set at that time.
I called my friends and they
promised me they would look
around the venue site the next
day.
I just cannot tell you how
irresponsible I felt and how
worried I was. I went to bed
and tossed and turned most
of the night. I was not only
worried about the missing
keys, but I just felt very
immature and careless.
The next morning I was
looking around the house and
I heard a knock on my back
door. I peeked out and there
stood my next door neighbor
holding a set of keys.
He asked, Are these
yours?
I said, Oh, Lord, yes!
Where did you find them?
He replied that he was
putting a collar on his cat
and looked down and saw
them on the ground. This was
close to the spot where I had
retrieved my ghost Halloween
decoration which had blown
over. I repeatedly thanked
him and and offered to pay
him. I commented, You just
dont know how worried Ive
been. That is the only set I
have.
The key finder did not want
any reward, but he just didnt
realize how happy he made me
by finding those elusive keys.
I said, Thank you, Jesus.
Lord, help me never to lose
them again.
I have always lost things
such as my purse, cellphone,
glasses and, yes, my car keys
as well as house keys.
Am I scatterbrained? Do
I not pay attention to what I
am doing? Is it because I am
blonde? You tell me and Ill
give you a Penny for Your
Thoughts.

Zoetis granted license


for PED virus vaccine
By Mark Holtsberry
Education specialist
Paulding SWCD
Zeotis Inc. has announced that the U.S.
Department of Agriculture (USDA) has
granted a conditional license for a vaccine
to help fight epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv)
in pigs. The two-dose inactivated vaccine,
licensed for use in healthy pregnant sows
and gilts is designed to help them develop
antibodies that can be transmitted to their
newborn piglets, Zoetis anticipates the
vaccine will be available to veterinarians and
pork producers later in September.
The vaccine is given as a 2 ml intramuscular
(IM) injection to sows or gilts prior to
farrowing. Two doses given three weeks
apart are recommended, with the second dose
given two weeks prefarrowing. Previously
vaccinated sows should receive a single dose
given two weeks before farrowing.
To receive the conditional license, the
vaccine was shown to be safe in a field
safety study, and a reasonable expectation of
efficacy was demonstrated. Zoetis is working
to complete the studies necessary to obtain
full licensure in the United States.
Zoetis continues work with Iowa State
University on a second vaccine approach
to help control PEDv. The results from
these vaccine research programs could

Paulding County fields being scouted

Palmer amaranth found in Putnam County

By Sarah Noggle
OSU Extension Educator
CONTINENTAL Three
major noxious weeds:
palmer, spiny, and water
hemp (amaranth) have
been found in Putnam
County, according to Steve
Prochaska, area agronomist
for OSU Extension.
Prochaska and Jim
Hoorman recently found
Palmer amaranth on one
farm near Continental, spiny
amaranth on two farms in the
Sugar Creek flood plains near
Kalida, and water hemp at one
site near Continental along the
road and near a corn field.
Upon further inspection, it
was seen that the plants have
viable black seeds which are
extremely small, tip-of-apen size. Pigweeds, of which
amaranth is a member, has
both male and female plants,
so the plants can cross pollinate
with native pigweed and they
have a lot of hybrid vigor.
Profiles indicate amaranth
plants are highly adaptable
and can be extremely hard to
control. Yield losses as high
as 80-90% may be common
on fields where the weeds
are not controlled. Officials
say farmers should be on the
lookout for strange patches of
weeds or even single weeds.
Paulding County OSU
Extension Educator, Sarah
Noggle has been out scouting
fields in Paulding County over
the last week.
I truly feel that if this
becomes an issue, the first
thing is to act quickly.
We need to have a notolerance philosophy on the
Palmer amaranth species.
If a producer questions any
weeds, I am willing to walk
the fields in question with
local farmers and help identify
the difference between the
Palmer, spiny and water
hemp.
I have free resources
available also in my office to
help with the identification
process. We have the means
to send in any sample to the
labs at Ohio State for final
identification or to determine
resistance to herbicides.
Please, if (you are) in question

take action now.


Contact the Paulding
County Extension office
to have an unknown weed
identified by calling 419-3998225, or Noggles cell phone
number, 419-506-1890.
The Palmer amaranth was
discovered first in a 100-acre
soybean field on the edge
of the field in neighboring
Putnam County. However,
several plants were found
in patches and scatted
throughout the field.
Palmer was also found in
a sweet corn patch that had
6-year-old solid manure which
was infested with Palmer seed.
So far, these are the only two
sites found. It was indicated
that a Putnam County dairy
supplying the manure had
stopped using cotton seed meal
six years ago. Anyone using
dairy manure from a neighbor
should check to make sure they
are not using cotton seed meal
imported from Southern states.
Humans easily transport
the small seeds through grain,
seed, or feed contamination;
or on equipment such as
combines. Used equipment
bought from the South like
combines, harvesters, and
even tires can hold thousands
of seeds and easily infest
nearby fields. It is thought
the 100-acre field was likely
infested by a sprayer or
mower used to spray the
corn patch because they
were separated by several
buildings, a windbreak, and
away from prevailing winds.
Extension personnel say
farmers should avoid buying
Southern-used equipment
because it is almost
impossible to clean the
machine adequately.

It is easy to misidentify
Palmer amaranth because it
looks similar to three other
common amaranth species:
redroot pigweed (Amaranthus
retroflexus), smooth pigweed
(Amaranthus hybridus),
and common water hemp
(Amaranthus rudis). The
resemblance is especially
strong during the seedling
stages of growth.
Palmer amaranth looks
like many pigweed species
and can reach a height of
6- 8 feet tall. It is extremely
competitive and aggressive.
It has a rapid growth rate of
up to 2.5 inches per day, high
drought tolerance, a high
seed production of 100,000500,000 seeds per plant and
has developed herbicide
resistance to glyphosate or
Roundup and/or ALS.
Palmer amaranth has
smooth stems and leaves with
no hairs that help to distinguish
it from native pigweeds and
Powell amaranth. The male
plant has a smooth long
tail while the females tend
to be extremely prickly.
Unfortunately, Palmer plants
appear to mature quicker than
local authorities first thought,
with seed heads appearing on
plants only six inches tall.
Since the seed heads are
so small, Palmer amaranth
germinates from very shallow
depths, less than .25 inch. If
a severe infestation occurs, it
is suggested that plowing the
soil to a depth of six inches
will prevent germination as
long as the seed is completely

buried. The seed only lasts


three to four years. The field
needs to be no-tilled and soil
disturbance minimized for the
next five to six years for this
strategy to work.
Cereal rye, radish, and
cover crops can be utilized
in the fall to compete with
the weeds for sunlight and
nutrients. Cereal rye and
radish both have natural
herbicides or allelopathic
effects that prevent weeds
from germinating in the fall
and early spring. Regular crop
rotation is also beneficial,
especially away from
soybeans.
Farmers are encouraged
to harvest fields with known
infestations of Palmer, spiny,
or water hemp last to prevent
weed seed spread. However,
birds, deer, and the wind are
known to disperse the seed.
Herbicides that control
Palmer amaranth include
Liberty Linked Soybeans,
atrazine, 2-4D, banvel,
metribuzin, metachlor and
several other herbicides.
One strategy is to use a preemergence herbicide with
residual control followed by
another herbicide treatment
at a later date with both a
pre-emergence and a postemergence herbicide to give
longer weed control.

PCH sees financial


gain for August


PAULDING The Paulding County Hospital Board of
Trustees met on Oct. 2. Robert Goshia, Chief Financial Officer,
reported that the month of August resulted in a modest income.
This is the first financial gain reported in many months. The
positive income was attributed largely to the steps taken to reduce
expenses to offset the declining payments made by Medicare,
Medicaid and insurance carriers.
The board authorized the CEO to enter into a contract with
United Allergy Services to develop an allergy testing and
treatment program at Paulding County Hospital. This program
will offer testing for 60 airborne and mold allergies through each
of the hospitals seven physician offices.
Patients found to have allergies may be able to participate in
a program to help them to become resistant to the allergy. The
program has proven successful in treating patients and eliminating
the common symptoms that allergy sufferers must endure.
For those patients found to have allergies, the physician may
order a custom formulation of the allergy source. The patient will
self-administer the solution through injection with a very small
needle. Ideally, through repeated exposure to the source of the
allergy the patient becomes desensitized to the allergy source.
Randy Ruge, CEO, reported that the hospital will be offering
a special reduced price for mammograms during the months of
October and November. The American College of Radiology
recommends that women aged 40 and over have an annual
mammogram.
The special rate of $100 paid at the time of the examination
includes the mammogram, the interpretation, and a bone density
screening test. Women wishing to schedule a study should contact
the hospital at 419-399-1131.

Public invited to share ideas


at entrepreneurship forum
ARCHBOLD If you have
ever dreamed of owning your
own business or turning an idea
into a product, the upcoming
Entrepreneurship Forum at
Northwest State Community
College (NSCC) may be the
launching pad you are looking
for. Attendees will have five
minutes to present their ideas
to a panel of entrepreneurship
experts who will provide
feedback and advice.
Television shows like
Shark Tank have helped
put entrepreneurship in the
spotlight. However, many
who have great ideas for
a product or business never
pursue them because they
dont know where to go or
what to do, said Lisa Becher,
business faculty at Northwest
State. Our goal with this event
is to provide an opportunity
for people to share their ideas,
receive feedback from experts
in the field and walk away with
an outline of how to make their
dream a reality.
The entrepreneurship forum
is open to anyone who would
like to present an idea, but
reservations are required. We
are excited to include local high
school students and Northwest
State Community College
students, and we hope to have
community participants as
well, said Becher. A variety

of perspectives and ideas will


really enhance the event and
provide for some excellent
dialogue.
The panel will include
Jerry L. Zielke, director of
Paulding County Economic
Development; Joel Miller,
executive director of
Henry County Chamber
of Commerce; Diamond
Zimmerman, coordinator
for the Williams County
Economic Development
Corporation; Matt Gilroy,
executive director of the
Fulton County Economic
Development Corporation;
Isaac Lee, president/CEO of
the Defiance Area Chamber
of Commerce; Mike Wolfe,
Ph.D., dean of business at
NSCC; and representatives
from the commercial lending
department at First Federal
Bank.
The entrepreneurship forum
will take place from 10 a.m.noon Tuesday, Oct. 28 in
the Voinovich Auditorium
at NSCC. Lunch, sponsored
by First Federal Bank, is
included. The event is free, but
reservations are required by
Friday, Oct. 24.
To reserve a presentation
time or for more information,

The mystery journey


of monarch migration
If I were asked to list one
of the great mysteries of the
natural world around me, it
would be the migration of
the monarch butterfly. Each
fall, at the right time and
signal, monarchs launch an
unbelievable journey from
places like Paulding County,
Ohio to the fir forests of westcentral Mexico.
There, they will spend the
winter on south-facing slopes
in numbers large enough to
break tree boughs. No one
knows exactly what tells them
to leave their northern habitat
but it is believed that they are
influenced by such factors
as shortened days, cooler
temperatures and possibly, the
chemical compounds found in
the late-season milkweeds the
caterpillars feed on.
The fascinating thing about
all of this is that a monarch
butterfly can leave the Black
Swamp Reserve in Paulding
and miraculously somehow
travel 3,000 miles to join its
fellow species brothers and
sisters in central Mexico
without any teaching, training
or instruction.
No one apparently teaches
the butterflies of their long
trip. It seems that the itinerary
is passed along through
generations as programmed
information. They just
somehow know.

This summer as I have spent
hours and hours walking on
various trails in wetlands and
woodlands, I have become
fascinated more than ever
by monarchs. For one thing,
they are extremely hard to
photograph. They are so
squirmy. They never stand or
sit still long enough to focus
through the lens. Perhaps
the 3,000-mile journey is
what they need to work the
willies out of them.
These days, I keep
comparing their upcoming
journey to life itself. None of
us know what is ahead of us
anymore than the monarchs
do about their journey. We
dont really know which way
we will go or where we will
land. Yet, we just keep going.

Soybean harvest is in full swing these days as farmers spend afternoon and evening in their
bean fields.

Harvest off to a good start


By JIM LANGHAM
Feature Writer
PAULDING Ohio State University
agriculture extension agent Sarah Noggle
said earlier this week that harvest is getting
in full swing in many parts of the county. In
particular, bean harvest is increasing, with
yields ranging from the 40s to mid-60s being
reported in her office early on. Many beans
are dry with moisture rates of 11-13 percent
common in most fields.
Also, silage harvest is still going on in
many parts of the county, but is finishing up
overall.
Its interesting; even though some beans
look green, the moisture rate is pretty dry,
noted Noggle. Pod size, seed size and the
number of pods all affect the test weight.
In addition, many farmers also continue to
cut hay.
The tons of silage being harvested is
phenomenal, said Noggle. Its been
very high. Its making some of those fields
farmers thought would go to silage under
consideration for regular corn harvest.
Noggle said that all indications are that
farmers are going to have another very
productive corn harvest.
Corn is at black layer or past and is
hardening, observed Noggle. The kernels
are drying down now. Some people have
started corn harvest.
Noggle said that current moisture in corn
harvest is 22 percent, compared to desired

There is something innate


about intuitive trust in our
Creator that keeps us on a
path we do not know as we
travel down a road where
weve never been before. We
dart and land, dart and land,
and yet somehow, we arrive!
This summer, I had such a
wonderful personal friendship
with Ronnie, the red-winged
blackbird. They started their
migration in early August. I
often think about Ronnie and
wonder where his migration
took him. Apparently, redwinged blackbirds, especially
those from wetlands in the
north, often end up in southern
pasture fields.
The power of the intuitive is
indeed fascinating. Somehow
we often make moves that
lead us to realms where things
seem right. The power of the
journey within continues to be
extra fascinating, but I think
I know who is in charge of the
travel rights on that one.

moisture between 15 and 20 percent.


The recent warm-up was a good help to
the corn, observed Noggle. Its helping dry
things down.
Noggle said that last Friday she made 72
stops to scout for weeds in Paulding, Antwerp,
Cecil and Antwerp. She noted that she is
working on the random rate throughout the
county in an attempt to scout soybean fields.
Corn harvest will be a long harvest this
year, said Noggle. With low corn prices, I
believe that we will see an increase in wheat
planted, following soybean harvest.
Noggle advised that area drivers be keenly
aware of the presence of farm machine during
the harvest season.

Co-op names Willitzer marketing,


economic development manager
PAULDING Paulding Putnam Electric
Cooperative has named Erika Willitzer their
marketing and economic development manager.
Its a move that CEO George Carter hopes will
ensure a more competitive business environment
and position for economic growth in the PPEC
territory.
The electric company serves more than 12,900
member-owners in Paulding, Putnam, Defiance,
Van Wert and Allen counties in Ohio, and Adams
and Allen counties in Indiana.
This is a chance for PPEC to assist local
economic development directors and our
commercial and industrial member/consumers with
their growth potential. This is about leveraging local
efforts with several state and federal programs that
PPEC has access to and can assist and deliver those
programs through the local economic development
offices, said Carter.
Willitzer comes to the PPEC after three years
with the Paulding Chamber of Commerce, where
she was involved with many projects that focused
on the betterment of the community. One of the
most notable was the demolition of an abandoned
gas station at the corner of Jackson and Main streets
in downtown Paulding. Its now been transformed
into a beautiful community park. Willitzer also has a
strong background in marketing and has developed
many campaigns for small and large businesses.
My goal is to be aggressive and bring new
development to the areas we serve. Also, our vision
is to be a leader in economic development. We want
existing business owners and prospects to come to

PPEC for many reasons, but the two that jump out
to me personally, are 1.) PPEC is a trusted company
and 2.) Im dedicated to following through and
getting results that have great impact for businesses
and those that live in this region, stated Willitzer.
Prior to her work with the Paulding Chamber, she
was the morning news anchor for News talk 1190
WOWO where her focus was covering political
and economic news. She has covered many news
conferences and interviewed many well-known
political figures such as Governor Mitch Daniels,
Governor Mike Pence, President Bill Clinton,
First Lady Hilary Clinton, Colin Powell, and many
others. She earned her bachelor of science degree
in communications and journalism and has a minor
degree in political science.
Willitzer has also served on several boards and
currently is the incoming president for the Kiwanis
Club of Paulding and is the secretary for the United
Way of Paulding County.
Willitzers first day in the position was Monday,
Sept. 29.
She is excited to get started and welcomes phone
calls and emails for those that wish to meet with
her and start making strategic plans for business
growth. Call: 1-800-686-2357 or you can email her
at ewillitzer@ppec.coop.
Carter went on to say, This is a great opportunity
for PPEC and our members to bring someone with
Erikas experience and knowledge on board. We are
very fortunate to be able to attract someone of her
caliber to our organization. I want to welcome her
to the cooperative family.

EMA director Bohn stresses


winter preparedness
By JIM LANGHAM
Feature Writer
PAULDING With the recent
surge of chilly air funneling into
the county, Paulding County
EMA director Edward Bohn
stressed earlier this week that now
is the time to begin winter weather
preparation.
We dont wait until the day of
the storm to start thinking about
winter preparedness, said Bohn.
Now is the time to make our lists
and prepare for impending winter
weather which will be here sooner
than we think.
Even though we hope we
are still weeks away from the
first winter blast, stranger things
have happened in our Midwest
weather, continued Bohn. The
weather is already erratic. Then,
with the big transition to colder
weather underway, it is better to be
safe than sorry.
Bohn advocated that families
plan winter preparedness together
so that each family member
understands where things are and
what needs to be done in the face
of a surprise weather emergency
event.
Before the watches and

warnings are issued, prepare a


winter storm plan that will enable
you and your family to survive for
up to 72 hours without any outside
assistance, said Bond. Have extra
blankets on hand. Ensure that each
member of your household has a
warm coat, gloves and mittens, hat
and water-resistant boots. Make
sure all family members know
what to do when a winter storm
watch or warning is issued.
Bohn recommended the
following necessities in preparing
a disaster supply kit for your home:
flashlight and extra batteries,
portable, battery-operated NOAA
weather radio and AM/FM
radio with extra batteries, first
aid kit, one-week supply of food,
including items that do not require
refrigeration or cooking in case of
power loss, non-electric can opener
and bottled water.
Also, a one-week supply of
essential prescription medications,
extra blankets and sleeping bags,
fire extinguishers and a list of
emergency phone numbers and
numbers of closest of kin.
Develop an emergency
communications plan, said Bohn.
In case family members are

separated from one another during


a winter storm (a real possibility
during the day when adults are at
work and children are at school),
have a plan for getting back
together again. Ask an out-of-state
relative or friend to serve as the
family contact.
Make sure all family members
know how to respond after a severe
weather storm, continued Bohn.
Teach children how and when to
call 911, police or fire department
and which radio station to tune to
for emergency information.
Concerning the home, Bohn
advocates servicing snow
removal equipment and having
ice-melting means available,
insulating walls and attic,
caulking and weather-stripping
doors and windows, installing
storm windows or covering
windows, prepare for keeping
warm in the event electricity
goes out, taking steps to keep
pipes from freezing and keeping
faucets dripping to avoid
freezing.
(This is the first of a series of
winter preparedness articles
resulting from discussion with
EMA director Edward Bohn.)

Red Cross volunteer


garners regional award
PAULDING A strong
supporter of the Paulding
County Chapter of the
American Red Cross was
recently honored at the
regional level for his work
with Disaster Services.
American Red Cross
Disaster Action Team (DAT)
volunteer Lynn Phil
Wells of Paulding received
the Presidential Award at
the annual meeting of the
American Red Cross of
Northwest Ohio. The award
ceremony was held Sept. 18
in Maumee.
The Presidential Award
honors a volunteer who has
made a measurable impact
on the American Red Cross,
community and clients
served by the Red Cross.
In his role as a DAT
member for Red Cross
Phil volunteers in Paulding
County. Wells is a valuable
contributor to our DAT
team, said Sandy Lane, Van
Wert Red Cross community
chapter executive.
He has taken many
classes online, attended
regional meetings and
combined meetings with
Van Wert DAT. He responds
to house fires at a moments
notice and is available
when the need arises, Lane
continued. Most recently,
he took the lead for a
county preparedness drill by
opening a shelter, training
the volunteers, making note
cards for each station and
rotating volunteers through
the various stations so they
would know what to do
should a real-life situation
arise. We are grateful for his
commitment and dedication
to the Red Cross.
When I took over as
disaster chairman of Paulding
County a couple years ago I
was it. Just me doing fire
calls and all that goes with
being the disaster chairman.
Then along came Phil Wells.
Phil has been a blessing to
me and Paulding, said Rick
Noggle, Paulding County
DAT chairman. He has
become my right hand man,
helping in so many ways. If I

need him for a fire or anything,


I can count on Phil,and I dont
have to worry if it is going to
get done or not. He is great for
coming up with new ideas, and
following through with them
and will not hesitate to go up
and beyond the call if needed.
Our Red Cross in Paulding
County has benefitted greatly
by having Phil as part of our
team.
Larry Flick from the Lima
DAT said, Phil can be
counted on to be there and
working above his comfort
level. During the recent
exercise, Phil was ready; his
planning was again above
what was expected. All areas
were covered and ready to

Peggy Emerson, newly named executive director of the Paulding Chamber of Commerce, takes a
moment to look over the downtown landscape. On the job just a few weeks, Emerson is excited about
working with community leaders and business groups in developing the county in a positive way.

Emerson looking forward to


serving as chamber director
By JIM LANGHAM
Feature Writer
PAULDING Peggy Emerson only stepped
into the position as executive director of the
Paulding Chamber of Commerce a few weeks ago,
but it already seems like she has served out a much
greater period of time.
Emerson spent her first few days as director
working with former director Erika Willitzer at the
Flat Rock Creek Fall Festival.
I was here a week and a half before I got behind
this desk, said Emerson. The first week I was
running around setting up for Flat Rock. Then there
was cleaning up at Flat Rock. I really appreciated
working with Erika during that time.
Emerson said that a major advantage of coming
into the director position during the Flat Rock
event was that it gave her the opportunity to meet
many of the towns residents and leaders in a short
period of time. She noted that the involvement
enabled her to start thinking ahead already about
next years event.
I listened to a lot of people and visited with
them, said Emerson. That information, plus
guidance from the board, has been very helpful as
I step into this position.
Emerson grew up in the Hamilton-Cincinnati
area. She graduated from Hamilton High School
while her husband, Rev. Roger Emerson, pastor
of the United Methodist Church in Paulding,
graduated from Mount Healthy High School out
of Cincinnati.
The couple met through mutual friends who
were married. She served as maid of honor at their
wedding and Roger served as best man. Initially,
Roger was a teacher and Peggy worked for the
Hamilton Journal where she edited documents
from the government as a copy editor.
They were married in 1989 and had three
children. Shortly after, they felt the call to ministry.
Following ministerial training, they served United
Methodist churches in Hamilton, a circuit of
Harrod and Maysville for 11 and a half years and
then moved to Paulding in June.

Roots

Over the years, the ministering couple has made it


a practice of getting involved with community needs
in the area where they serve.
Beginning in 2004, Emerson served as a contract
trainer involving presentations in Ohio, Michigan,
Kentucky and West Virginia.
The major portion of that job involved contract
writing and publishing nationally used training and
nationally published articles.
For a year, she was involved as recruitment and
community outreach team leader for Girl Scouts of
Western Ohio. During that time she led a team of
recruitment managers to establish and implement
a recruitment plan for new girls and adults through
troops, volunteer led series, camp, events and
experiential adult recruitments in assigned service
until it met council and service unit membership
goals.
Over the years, Emerson also served as a
membership extension specialist for the Girl Scouts
of Western Ohio, public information coordinator
for the Allen Soil and Water Conservation District,
a Public Information Level 1 Clerk for the City of
Hamilton and a trainer/technical writer and database
developer.
Emerson will never forget the moment she saw
the chamber job advertised.
I said right away, There is my next job, said
Emerson.
Emerson was especially impressed by the effort that
had gone into the Herb Monroe Community Park.
I said in the interim before the ceremony, This
is exactly the kind of thing they need in Paulding,
said Emerson. It provides a sense of hopefulness and
positive thinking. It replaced an eyesore with a place
that is going to be full of activity, visiting, concerts and
community life opportunities.
I love every day. I see people out there visiting or
with laptops and it makes me happy and excited for
this opportunity. I see a friendly community wanting
to progress, said Emerson.
The public can meet Emerson at a chamber Business

By JOE SHOUSE
Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING Fifth graders
from all Paulding County
schools traveled to the Black
Swamp Nature Center on
Sept. 9 to experience hands
on educational opportunities
dealing with various
outdoor topics. Over 260
students converged on the
center as several speakers
demonstrated and shared
information concerning an
array of outdoor subjects for
Fifth Grade Field Day.
The large group of eager
students was divided into
smaller groups in order to
rotate to seven areas that
were set up. The seven area
learning centers included
forestry, water science,
Global Positioning System
(GPS) technology, plant
life, recycling, wildlife and
agronomy.
Those leading the the
sessions at the various stations
were:

Forestry Curtis Young,

I think the kids had a


great time. We had excellent
speakers and the day
turned out to be a fun-filled
educational experience for
both the students and many
of the teachers, said Mark
Holtsberry, educational
specialist for the Paulding
SWCD.
Along with the speakers
were co-workers Coral Fetzer,
Sam Smith and Ryan Mapes,
who assisted Holtsberry in
providing a great field day for
the county fifth graders.

Bulbs that surprise you in fall


Fall is the time when we
plan for spring color by
planting bulbs, but there are
some that would seem as if
they have their seasons mixed
up because they put their best
blooms forward in fall.
One of the first bloomers in
spring is the crocus, but one
of the most interesting doesnt
do its thing until fall. Several
years ago I planted Crocus
sativus - saffron crocus. It
looks very much like the
crocus that blooms in the
spring, but even though you
may see grass-like foliage in
spring that will go dormant
through summer, it will
reappear in October, when it
will bloom.
Saffron crocus differs in
another way too. Its stigmas,
the part of the flower that
receives pollen, are where
we get saffron, used in many
culinary dishes such as
Spanish paella. In spite of the
saffron stigmas being bright
red, they impart a yellow
color to the dishes in which
theyre used.
The saffron crocus stigmas
are very thin, almost threadlike; in fact, thats what
theyre called. Each bloom
only has three of them, which

In the
Garden

By
Kylee Baumle
must be plucked by hand
when harvesting, so you can
understand why saffron is
such an expensive spice.
It is normally produced
in countries like Spain and
Iran, due to it liking the
Mediterranean climate,
but its also commercially
produced in the area around
Lancaster, Penn., in the U.S.
We can grow saffron crocus
here in Paulding County, too,
and I have done so for several
years now. I have harvested
the threads each fall by using
tweezers so that I get the
entire stigma. I let them sit out
to dry and then theyre kept in

Water
On
Wheels

an airtight container.
Another unique fallblooming bulb is the
Colchicum, often called
autumn crocus, even though
it isnt a crocus at all. Its
blooms emerge in September,
are much larger than those of
crocuses, and stand about 6-8
inches in height.
I grow a particularly
beautiful Colchicum variety
called Waterlily and thats
exactly what the bloom
resembles. Its lavender-pink
in color and is a double, with
many more petals than the
average Colchicum.
Yet another interesting bulb
(corm, actually) that I love is
hardy cyclamen (Cyclamen
hederifolium). You might
be familiar with the florists
cyclamen, often seen around
Easter in grocery store floral
departments, but these are
not hardy and are generally
finicky once the blooms have
wilted away.
I have yet to have one of
those beauties survive much
past its bloom period, but
these hardy ones are another
story. Theyve got gorgeous
leaf forms and patterns and
the blooms, though tinier than
the florists cyclamen, are

Fall into Savings

Kylee Baumle/Paulding County Progress

Crocus usually bloom throughout the summer but pictured here is the saffron crocus that
remains dormant in the summer but blooms in the fall.
nonetheless just as beautiful.
Theyre a pinky-lavender
color and erupt in fall, usually
September, before the foliage.
Foliage can be ivy-shaped
and have beautiful silver
markings or simply solid
pewter. But the show doesnt
end there. As the flowers are
pollinated and they set seed,
they form the quirkiest mauve

coils which then guide the


seeds to the soils surface.
They will eventually germinate
and in a few years will begin to
flower.
Though dormant in summer,
these bulbs give autumn
interest to the garden, when not
as much is going on. The best
time to plant hardy cyclamen
and saffron crocus is in spring

and colchicums in early


August. Several online sources
exist, but be prepared to pay a
little more for these unusual
bulbs. Trust me, theyre worth
it.

Pigskin Preview Week 7

Game: Antwerp (1-5, 0-3) vs. Hicksville (3-3, 1-2)


Time: 7 p.m. at Antwerp
Last weeks result: Edgerton 54 Antwerp 31

Tinora 56 Hicksville 8
Last years result: Hicksville 46 Antwerp 6
This year: Antwerp 20.8 ppg.; 32.8 points allowed
Hicksville 25.0 ppg.; 36.2 points allowed
This weeks match up: Antwerp showed some life in the second
half in last weeks loss to Edgerton. Trailing 40-6 at halftime, the
Archers outscored the Bulldogs 25-14 in the second half. An effort
like that is needed for all four quarters for a win over Hicksville this
Friday. The Aces have been up and down all season and were
easily handled last week by a very talented Tinora team.
Game: Paulding (1-5, 0-3) vs. Allen East Mustangs (2-4, 1-4)
Time: 7:30 p.m. at Keysor Field
Last weeks result: Ada 61 Paulding 14

Allen East 39 Bluffton 34
Last years result: Allen East 30 Paulding 20
This year: Paulding 22.0 ppg.; 47.8 points allowed
Allen East 26.5 ppg.; 39.0 points allowed
This weeks match up: This weeks match up features two
teams that give up a lot of points. This may come down to who
has the ball last wins. Paulding played a good first half last week
against Ada and trailed by a couple of touchdowns. The second
half was a different story as the Panthers were held scoreless
and Ada went on to score a total of 61 points. For the Mustangs,
they picked up their first NWC win with a 39-34 high scoring affair
over Bluffton.
Game: Wayne Trace (5-1, 3-0) vs. Edgerton (3 -3, 2-1 )
Time: 7 p.m. at Wayne Trace
Last weeks result: Wayne Trace 49 Holgate 15

Edgerton 54 Antwerp 31
Last years result: Wayne Trace 45 Edgerton 0
This year: Wayne Trace 46.0 ppg.; 21.5 points allowed

Edgerton 32.8 ppg.; 20.3 points allowed
This weeks match up: Wayne Trace seems to hit their stride.
Since their loss to Crestview the Raiders have won their last three
games by an average of 30 points. Look for another GMC win this
Friday by a large margin.

Ottawa Hills (311), Ashland Crestview (323), Van Buren (325)
and Lima Central Catholic (327) took the top four spots to move
on to next weeks state tournament.
Minster was fifth at 329 followed by Kalida (331), Ayersville
(342), Arlington (343), Sandusky St. Marys (344), Stryker (348),
New London (356), Cardinal Stritch (357), Mohawk (361), Allen
East (364), Wayne Trace (370), McComb (375), North Central
(376) and Patrick Henry (385).
Luke Miller led the Raider efforts with an 80 while senior

PAULDING A bigtime performance by Ada
quarterback Seth Conley
outlasted Pauldings attempt
to bring about a homecoming
upset at home on Friday
night.
Conley passed for a
massive 375 yards and five
touchdowns, plus crossed the
line with the football twice
on his own effort to lead his
Bulldogs to a 61-14 win over
the Panthers. With the win,
Ada, who has lost a number
of close games, improved its
overall mark to 3-3 and 2-2
in the Northwest Conference
while Paulding slipped to 1-5
overall and 0-3 in conference
play.
They are a different style
of football team. Coach
Owens (Bob) has an overall
great history behind him. His
players play hard. I have a lot
of respect for him; he has a
traditional winning program,
commented Paulding head
coach Kyle Coleman. Even
though they lost some games,
they are going to be right
there. They caught us on a
couple of big plays.
We were down by 12
points (26-14) at the halfway
mark, continued Coleman.
I was hoping that maybe we
could get a couple of things
going in the second half and
come up on them but they
had a couple of big plays and
broke away.
Once again, Pauldings
Treston Gonzales was the
big point-getter for Paulding.
In the first quarter, he took
off on a 79-yard pass play
from sophomore quarterback
James Mourey. Then, in the
second quarter, Gonzales
created his own big play,
grabbing the ball and
scampering across the goal
line for his second touchdown
of the game.
With Ada leading 26-14
going into the third stanza,
the Bulldog defense was able
to shut down the Panther
offense while tallying 21
points on its own to grab a
47-14 lead at the end of the
quarter. It was all-Ada in
the final 12 minutes as the
Bulldogs won going away.
In addition to Conleys
performance, Blake Ansley
added three touchdowns for
the visitors, one through the
air and two rushing.
Overall, I thought our
defense played a little better,
commented Coleman. Were
still not where we need to be
in getting the stops. We make
three plays and then give up
a big play. Weve got to stop
giving up these big plays.
Were going to keep
working on the same stuff
weve been working on,

continued Coleman. I feel


that we will be successful if
we continue to buy in to what
we are practicing.
Coleman said that he would
like to see the squads ability
to continue to be effective
in reading the opponents
changes.

When
they
make
adjustments, we have to do a
better job of reading them,
said Coleman. Our guys are
young. We missed a couple or
three big plays that I feel we
should have handled.
Coleman said that he
understands that sophomore
quarterback Mourey is young
in age and in the position
where he is being trained.
Adas quarterback has
no doubt been working
that position since pee wee
Jim Bowers/Paulding County Progress
league, observed Mourey.
Its tough when you go Preston Ingol #27 rips off good yardage on a kick return
against an offense like that. against NWC foe Ada last Friday night.

Raiders strike quickly to rout Tigers

HOLGATE Wayne Trace scored on
three of its first six plays from scrimmage as
the Raiders rolled to a 49-15 win at Holgate
Friday night in Green Meadows Conference
action.
The red-white-and-blue found the
endzone on their first, third and sixth play of
the night in opening a 28-0 advantage after
one quarter.
From there, Wayne Trace added 21 more
second quarter points and cruised the rest of
the way to move to 5-1 overall and 3-0 in
league play.
Jake Dingus rumbled 57-yards on the

games first play for a Raider touchdown


on homecoming night at Tiger Stadium.
Tyler Showalter then ran in the two-point
conversion to make it 8-0 Wayne Trace.
After Holgate was unable to answer, the
red-white-and-blue needed only two plays
to score again.
Taking over at Holgate 48, Showalter
hooked up with Cole Shepherd on a 23-yard
pass on first down before running the final
25 yards on the next play to make it 14-0
Raiders.
The Tigers appeared to be ready to move
into scoring position on their next possession
as quarterback Dylon Szabo found Andrew
Blakeley for a reception into Raider territory.
However, Showalter then made a sterling

defensive play, stripping Blakeley of the ball


as he was running down the sideline to give
Wayne Trace possession at its own 24 yard
line.
Two plays later, Showalter hooked up
with Shepherd on a 64-yard scoring strike
that, combined with Dingus running in the
two-point conversion, made it 22-0 with
6:00 left in the first quarter.
Showalter connected with David Sinn
on the next Raider possession for a 17-yard
touchdown toss as Wayne Trace posted a
28-0 advantage after one quarter.
Sinn added a 60-yard touchdown
reception of a Dingus pass for the first of

Archers cant overcome blitz


Antwerp outscores Dogs 25-14 in second half
By JOE SHOUSE
Sportswriter
EDGERTON The Edgerton
Bulldogs took a bite out of the
Antwerp Archers in the first half
on Friday. The bite was enough
to put Edgerton in control at 40-6
at intermission. Although the
Archers outscored the Bulldogs
in the second half, the damage
was already done in the opening
two quarters.

Using a potent offense, the


Route 49 neighbor to the north
scored on every one of their six
first-half possessions. During
a span of just under seven
minutes in the second quarter,
Edgerton ran just five offensive
plays and in the process scored
four touchdowns. The Bulldogs
enjoyed a 40-6 halftime margin
and went on to post a Green
Meadows Conference win, 54-

31.
With the win, Edgerton evens
their season at 3-3 overall and
2-1 in league play. For the
Archers, head coach Drew
Altimus and his crew fall to 1-5
overall and 0-3 in the GMC with
another opportunity to pick up
their first GMC win this Friday
when they host Hicksville.
Edgerton jumped out to an
early 14-0 lead in the first quarter

and on their third drive that


continued into quarter number
two the Bulldogs increased their
advantage 20-0 with 11:08 on
the clock.
Antwerp finally lit up the
scoreboard on a seven-play
possession covering 76 yards. A
large portion of the drive came
on a 59-yard scamper by junior

WT sweeps Apaches

Jim Bowers/Paulding County Progress

Wayne Traces Erin Mohr #32 winds up for a kill against


Hicksville last Tuesday. The Aces won in straight sets.

The Wayne Trace Raiders gained a


three-set sweep of Fairview in non-league
action Thursday night at the Palace.
The Apaches hung tough in the first set
before Wayne Trace used a 10-point run
to pull away for a 25-15 victory. In the
second set, the Raiders cruised to a 2510 win before taking the third game 2519.
With the win, Wayne Trace moved
to 12-7 overall on the season while the
Apaches dropped to 9-9.
Our defensive effort was very good
tonight, noted Raider head coach
Angie Speice. I thought it was a total
team effort and we were able to build on
it and play with confidence.
Mackenzie Swary had a dozen digs
and an ace for the Raiders while Erin
Mohr topped the red-white-and-blue
with 17 kills. Addison Baumle chipped
in 16 digs, six kills and three blocks and
Gina Sinn posted eight digs.

Paulding 25-21, 20-25 and 26-24.

Lancers sweep PHS

Lincolnview kept the momentum


rolling with a 3-set sweep of conference
rival Paulding on Thursday evening.
The host Lancers won the match 25-17,
25-9, 25-22.
It was a good conference win for us.
I felt that Paulding was very scrappy,
and we kind of came out a little slow to
start the game, said Lincolnview coach
JaNahn Evans.
The Panthers dropped to 5-14 on the
year and 2-5 in the NWC, good enough
for seventh place.

Aces post win

Wayne Trace dropped a Green

win. However, the green and white outlasted

WAYNE TRACE
Continued from Page 1B

three Wayne Trace scores in the


second quarter.
Dingus also recorded a
60-yard run for a score and
Shepherd scampered in from 10
yards out to widen the lead to
49-0 at halftime.
From there, Wayne Trace
played a rotation of reserves in
the second half, but Holgate did
find the endzone twice.
Szabo got the Tigers on the
scoreboard with a two-yard
touchdown run in the third
quarter. Holgate had taken over
at the Raider two yard line after
a 55-yard fumble recovery
return from Nick Luderman.
The purple-and-whites final
score of the night came with
22 seconds left in the contest as
Baily Hohenberger plunged in
from two yards out, setting the
final margin at 49-15.
Dingus led the Raider ground
game with 140 yards on four
carries while Jayden Sherry
added 62 yards on five tries.
Showalter (23 yards), Darius
Hale (21 yards), Caleb Schultz

(19 yards) and Shepherd (10


yards) also contributed to the
Raider rushing attack.
Wayne Trace finished the
night with 268 rushing yards on
28 attempts while also posting
202 yards via the passing attack.
Through the air, Showalter
completed five of nine passes for
140 yards and the Tigers Szabo
connected on 12 of 21 attempts
for 128 yards.
Blakeley led the Tigers with
four receptions for 56 yards and
Devin Hohenberger recorded 47
yards on three catches.
David Sinn paced Wayne
Trace with three receptions for
95 yards and Cole Shepherd
chipped in a pair of catches for
87 yards. Dingus (18 yards) and
Nick Glass (two yards) also had
receptions for the Raiders.
Holgate totaled 61 rushing
yards and 138 yards through the
air.
Wayne Trace returns to
action Friday as the Raiders
host Edgerton, a 54-31 winner
over Antwerp Friday night. The

Bulldogs will come into the


contest at 3-3 overall and 2-1 in
the league.

BULLDOG
BITS

Edgertons other two wins came


over Hicksville (48-12) and
Edon (59-20) while the Bulldog
losses have been to Patrick
Henry (26-23), Lima Central
Catholic (45-0) and Tinora (4813).
PLAYOFF POINTS Out
of the seven teams in front of
Wayne Trace in the playoff
chase, only one of the seven
lost. Lima Central Catholic, who
entered the week ranked second,
fell to Spencerville 35-21.
Winners in Division IV
Region 20 included Tinora (568 over Hicksville), Crestview
(27-14 over Delphos Jefferson),
Van Buren (47-6 over Vanlue),
Gibsonburg (62-35 over Edon)
and Bucyrus Wynford (62-6
over Crestline).
Carey, who entered the week
ranked 12th, also picked up a big
35-14 win over Buckeye Central
(4-2) Friday night.

ANTWERP
Continued from Page 1B

Justice Clark when he carried


the ball to the two yard line.
Nick Barnhouse capped off the
successful drive on a one-yard
plunge with 8:45 remaining in
the second frame.
Starting from their own
48 yard marker on their next
possession, Bulldog QB Duane
Miller picked through the
Archers defense and rambled
52 yards to tack another
touchdown on the scoreboard.
Following a successful extra
point, also from Miller,
Edgerton was on top, 27-6.
Following an Antwerp
three-and-out,
Edgerton
found themselves in excellent
field position at the Archer 18
yard line. Needing just two
plays to find paydirt, Miller
connected with Alex Michael
for an 18-yard scoring
strike. With the extra point
good, the Bulldogs and their
homecoming crowd enjoyed
a 34-6 lead.
Unable to generate any
offense, and deep in their own
territory, the Archers were
again forced to punt, giving
the ball back to the Bulldogs.
From the Archers 20 yard
line, Miller needed just one
play to scoot 20 yards for the
final score of the first half.
In the first half, we didnt
execute at all offensively.
Edgerton has some good
athletes and maybe that had
something to do with our first
half play. I was disappointed
and frustrated with our play
in the first half, said Coach

Altimus.
With Antwerp trailing 40-6
at intermission, the running
clock went into effect with
the Bulldogs holding at least
a 30-point lead. However, the
running clock would be shortlived as the Archer defense
stepped up and stopped
their opponent on their first
possession. The Archers took
advantage of their defensive
stop and used a quick 62-yard
burst from Barnhouse to put
the Archers in scoring position
at the four yard line. After a
couple of tries up the middle,
Clark finally answered the call
on a one-yard plunge to put
the lead at less than 30 for the
Bulldogs. Following a Jarrett
Bute extra point, the Archers
trailed 40-13.
The following Edgerton
drive would produce very
little and was eventually
snuffed out when Clark
intercepted a Miller pass, but
the Archers could not take
advantage of the turnover.
The third quarter would end
with the Bulldogs hanging on,
40-13.
Early in the fourth period,
with the pigskin in the hands
of the Archers, Barnhouse
again barreled his way
through the teeth of the
Bulldog offense on a 14-yard
run to inch the Archers a little
closer, 40-19.
Edgertons Miller used little
time, needing just one play to
answer the Archer score with
a keeper up the middle that

covered 81 yards of real estate


and placing the home team
lead at 47-19. Miller finished
with 243 yards rushing and
126 yards passing.

With
heart
and
determination, the outmanned
Archers continued to represent
themselves with character
as they pushed the Bulldog
defense. Facing a third down
play, freshman quarterback
Josh Poulson teamed with
Clark on a 57-yard strike
with 8:21 remaining. Clark
finished the night with 147
rushing yards and 63 yards
receiving on two catches and
one interception. Barnhouse
totaled 103 yards on the
ground on 13 totes including
two touchdown runs.
Edgertons final score
covered 63 yards on three
plays capped off with a 26yard run by Logan Daniels.
After an unsuccessful Archer
drive and Edgerton leading 5425, the Bulldogs were looking
to add points to their total
when Antwerps sophomore
defensive linebacker Mike
Taylor snatched the ball away
from the Bulldog runner and
ran it in from the 21 yard line
for the final score.
At halftime we had a talk.
Not a whole lot needed said.
We just communicated to
the team the need to execute
better. We didnt change
anything for the second half,
but I thought the guys came
out and played with heart and
passion, said Altimus. The
first half was disappointing
and the second half was much
better.
Altimus is looking for that
style of execution to carry
over to this Fridays home
game with the Aces.

For the Paulding Lady Panthers, Brooke Clemens put together a solid run to finish first for the
Panthers and 54th overall with a time of 24:47.
