PAULDING Members of the
Paulding County Park Districts board
of commissioners have at least 10
months to re-energize the district.
This ruling was handed down last
week by Judge John A. DeMuth of
Paulding County Probate Court.
The Court finds that even though
the statutory prerequisites are met
(regarding the dissolution of the Park
District), that action on the dissolution
should be stayed for a period of at least
ten months so that the Park District

Four fire departments battled a blaze that destroyed a home Sunday evening west of Scott. Eight residents, including
six children, were unharmed.

Fire destroys home near Scott

By JIM LANGHAM
Feature Writer
SCOTT A major fire completely destroyed the residence of the Rich Strunkenberg family late Sunday afternoon.
Scott firefighters received a phone
call at approximately 5:10 p.m. Dec. 28
reporting the blaze. Scott Fire Chief Jay
Klopfenstein said that when his department arrived on the scene, they found
the house fully engulfed in flames. He
noted that eight residents, including six
children, lived in the home.
Klopfenstein said that part of the family was gone and part were home at the

time the blaze erupted but nobody was


injured.
Describing the fire as a total loss,
Klopfenstein noted that the Scott Volunteer Fire Department received mutual
aid from Payne, Paulding and Grover
Hill. In addition, the American Red
Cross immediately began caring for the
family and delivering food and water to
the site.
Approximately 25 firemen were on
the scene at the peak of activity, noted
Klopfenstein.
We were on the scene for approximately seven hours, said Klopfenstein

of the presiding Scott Department. We


arrived shortly after 5 p.m. and left close
to 12:30 a.m.
Klopfenstein noted that the state fire
marshal examined the scene on Monday
and listed the cause, currently, as undetermined origin.
We want to thank everyone that provided assistance, said Klopfenstein.
Everyone was a great help. We had lots
of volunteers from the community that
came to help, and we really appreciate
the assistance from the Red Cross.

Sheriffs department plans


second K9 unit in 2015
By DENISE GEBERS
Progress Staff Writer
PAULDING A second canine unit
will be added to the staff of the Paulding County Sheriffs Office this coming
spring, according to Sheriff Jason Landers.
The need is there, he said. Its
warranted to add a second canine due
to what I believe to be the benefit of
having one. And having one has been
a blessing, especially in the area of narcotics.
He went on to say Jano, the current
K9 unit and his handler, Deputy Gary
Deitrick, get called in to work frequently.
Some weeks Gary gets no days off,
said the Sheriff.
Landers said having a second K9
unit will allow the department to have
one K9 unit scheduled at least eight
hours every day. He added that most
days would even allow 16 hours with a
canine on duty.
It is in the plan to purchase the new
dog in March so a second handler-dog
team can train beginning in April with
the Allen County, Ind. class.
Selection process for a second handler
is currently underway. Sheriff Landers
expects to make a decision about the
position in January or February.

Fundraising for this second unit is


already under way. Landers estimated startup expenses are $13,700. This
includes the $7,000 cost of the dog,
$5,200 to convert a current vehicle into
a K9 friendly vehicle, $550 training and
$1,000 for miscellaneous expenses like
uniforms, lead lines, leashes, kennel,
cooling vest and the like.
Unfortunately, no grants are currently
available for this project.
A fund has been established with
the Paulding County Area Foundation
where director Lisa McClure has agreed
to funnel donations through their 501C3
accounts. Checks may be made payable
to the foundation with a notation that
the donation is for the Paulding County
Sheriff K9 Unit Fund. These may be
sent to the office at 101 E. Perry St.,
Paulding, OH 45879.
Folks can still send or bring their
donations to my office, said Landers.
However, if they want to or need to use
a resource for a taxable donation, they
would need to utilize the Foundation.
We will seek requests from them for
expenses and maintenance of the K9
program, Landers explained.
He has been pleased with the work
Deitrick and Jano have been doing,
Jano is well worth the investment due
to his training and abilities, adding that

his office will work with the same agency to secure their second dog because of
Janos quality.
Janos success rate when he alerts to
a vehicle has been 94% that his alert is
substantiated. Thats a lot of illegal narcotics or paraphernalia deputies were
able to remove from the streets! I can
only speculate that adding another K9
team will double those numbers due
to the accessibility of both K9 units,
Landers noted.
In a rundown of the K9 unit activities
for 2014, Landers gave the following
data:
57 vehicle narcotic sniffs
7 building searches (narcotic or
suspects)
19 public demonstrations
2 warrant checks during search
warrants
5 tracking of fleeing suspects
10 school searches
3 building checks due to alarms.
The benefits Ive seen in our continuous battle with narcotics tell of
the positive advancement for Paulding
County, said Sheriff Landers. We
were blessed with such swift financial
support on our first K9 unit that I truly
hope the county sees the benefit in this Jano will be getting some backup this coming spring as Pauldand chooses to support us as we contin- ing County Sheriff Jason Landers prepares to purchase a second
K9 unit for his office.

Woman of the Year passionate about serving her community

Central Illinois Business


magazine published an article
in its October/November 2014
edition spotlighting Becca
Guyette as its Forty Under
40 Woman of the Year. The
daughter of Mike and Mary Nieto of Paulding, she is a 1997
graduate of Paulding High
School.

Business www.centralillinoisbusiness.com

Becca Guyettes mission, as
the director of leadership giving
at the United Way of Champaign County, is spreading the
word about the good works of
an organization she believes in
and helping others find a way to
support it.
My joy is matching passion
with resources when people
have resources to give and a
passion, and finding a mission
for them to support, she said.
I feel what we are doing in
the community is life-changing stuff, Guyette continued.
The United Way is not about
charity, its about change. The
change is what excites me.
She is comfortable asking
people for money to support the
organization because I know
were good stewards and were
having great impact in the community.
Guyette grew up in Paulding,
Ohio, a small farm community
in the northwestern part of that
state. Her parents instilled in
her and her five older siblings
the importance of community
service. Guyettes mother has
organized her churchs funeral
dinners and church bazaars for
more than 40 years.
But it was in college at
Bowling Green State University that Guyette really learned
that fundraising was her calling. She was involved in student government and leadership activities, and one of her
roles was accompanying the
colleges development director
on donor visits.
She explained why what
we were doing was important,
Guyette said of the development director, who became her
mentor. She taught me everything, (including) how to listen
thats the biggest part of fund-

raising. She really helped me


understand donors. She had a
very keen understanding of donors, why they give, how they
come to those decisions.
It isnt about the gift. Its
about the donor, Guyette added. Its about your supporters
and what drives them.
Guyette came to Champaign-Urbana in 2001 to earn
her masters degree in organizational communications at the
University of Illinois, while her
future husband Joe went to law
school here.
After finishing graduate
school, she took a job as the
program director at the University YMCA. The development position at the YMCA
opened up a few years later.
She was hired, although the Y
was in the planning stages of a
capital fund drive and Guyette
didnt have experience running
a major fundraising campaign.
A consultant helped guide her
through it, and what started as
a $1 million campaign raised
twice that amount.
I will be eternally grateful
for them giving me that opportunity, Guyette said. I learned
a lot about the field of fundraising. But mostly what I learned
is this is my passion.

we have around here.
County Commissioner Roy
Klopfenstein, who was present
at the scene, said that he never ceases to marvel at the hard
work and professionalism of the
countys volunteer fire departments and other organizations
that assist in such situations.
I keep hearing the good
things that our volunteer firemen, EMTs, Red Cross and
other volunteers do in situations

such as this, said Klopfenstein.


I heard of one firefighter
who left a family gathering to
help fight the fire, continued
Klopfenstein. We see that
when our firemen are fighting
a fire, they make huge sacrifices
to make sure things get done.
This demonstrates the tremendous professionalism on
the part of all of our county
volunteers, added Commissioner Fred Pieper. This shows
all of the hard work they put in
to training sessions and other
efforts to make sure that they
are the best trained firemen
around.

PRACTICE
DEMOCRACY.
READ YOUR
LEGAL
NOTICES.

The reason publication of legal


notices is required in newspapers is YOU, the citizen. In a
democracy, the government is
required to inform you of the
public business, because you
and your neighbors are the basis of government.
These notices provide essential information about all local
government entities, including
schools, cities, villages and
counties.
A democracy is a system of
checks and balances. Your
right to be informed is a check
on government. Public notices
shed light on the actions of all
governmental bodies, but its
up to you, the citizen, to read
them and obtain more information on the actions that have
an impact on you.

THEYRE
CRUCIAL TO
DEMOCRACY.

We are almost to the end


of 2014. A brand new year
lies ahead. What will it have
in store for us? If we would
know, would we be able to go
on? Anything is possible if we
let God lead the way and keep
our full trust in him.
As I sit here thinking of how
my family always spent New
Years Day, a lot of memories
come to my mind. When my
maternal grandparents were
still living they would have
their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren
home for the Christmas gathering. The day would start out
early. We would get up early
to get the cows milked and
have breakfast. We lived very
close to my grandparents, so
some of the uncles, aunts and
cousins would start gathering
at our house as soon as breakfast was done.
It would still be very dark
outside, and all of us children would be so excited. We
would all walk over to my
grandparents house in the
dark, and sometimes we had a
lot of snow to trudge through.
We lived on a road that wasnt
traveled much back then, so it
was an enjoyable walk. My
grandparents had eight children and more than 80 grandchildren. Uncle Henry and
Aunt Barbara lived in the big
house attached to Grandpa
and Grandmas little house.
They would set up tables in
their dining room and living
room to seat all the adults
and the older children. The
younger ones were fed before
everyone else ate.
When we arrived at Grandpa and Grandmas, all of us
would stand outside their
door singing the traditional

Payne traffic
lights deserve
more thought

Dear Editor,
We who live in small communities appreciate our individual freedoms.
While there are many limitations as to what a small
village such as Payne, can
afford for sewer and streetrepairs, perhaps we need to address a common-sense issue
that has come up recently.
The decision by the state was
made by assessing traffic statistics, as we understand it.

Property Transfers

When appealed to the state


for the needs of theintersections of613 and 49 roads
through our village, the state
decision was that there is not
enough traffic to justify a
light at that intersection.
But for those of us who
live here, we have more
time to think this problem
through.
There is, the last time we
looked,Paynes elementaryschool on 613, as well as
a parochial school,not far
from this intersection. While
many children arebrought by
school bus, we have observed
children who live in our community who walk that route
to school.
We do not want toseean
injury or a death of a child
to pay for a misjudgment
in what ought to be done to
make the intersection ofWest
Townline Road (613) and
Main Street (49) safe.
Since welive on Main
Street just a short distancefrom that intersection,we hearthe sounds of
numerous large trucks, semis,
farmers bringinggrain to
the local elevators as well
as some sedans, night and
day. While only a two-lane
road, Ohio 49 is the main
thoroughfare going north and
south, other than the major
highways which bypass our
town.
With nothing to stop them
as they come into town,all

of these vehicleswill not be


slowing down the waywe
now hear them, even with
hard-to-see temporary stop
signs erected after storm
damage destroyed the traffic
lights that had existed there.
Unlike modern expressways at intersections with
enormous illumination from
gigantic poles containing
stronglighting ... our little intersection barely illuminates
where thecurbs, such as they
are, exist.
Will we have to wait till a
child is killed, or someones
pet, or that someone does not
see another vehicle coming
during the day, especially in
winter weather with no light
of any kind at this intersection?
We have a question for you
who live here with us:
Can we afford to have
Christmas lights in the entire
downtown area and NOT AFFORD TO INSTALL a set of
yellow blinkers one direction
and a set of red blinker lights
the other direction? Can
wenot afford as a community to pay for our own lights if
they are simple blinkers?
Wehope you discuss
this, giving it some thought.
Which of your family would
you like to sacrifice while
you take forever to think this
problem over?

Call when planning work along highway


LIMA Putting up a mailbox, installing a drainage
pipe beneath a driveway, or
cleaning out a ditch are all
normal activities property
owners routinely undertake.
But if done improperly and
without the permission of
the Ohio Department of
Transportation, serious legal
ramifications could result.
We are urging property
owners to contact us before
they do any type of work
along a state highway. Its
much better to work with us
ahead of a project rather than
create a problem in the end
which requires reversal,
said Kirk Slusher, Ohio Department of Transportation
District 1 deputy director.
The following are the most
common kinds of activities
which can sometimes conflict with state requirements:
Mailboxes Mailbox-

es can be a roadside hazard


if guidelines for mailbox
placement and type are not
adhered to. Visit the United States Postal Service for
guidance at www.usps.com/
manage/mailboxes.htm.
Ditch cleaning Before
performing any work in or
along a ditch, check with the
local ODOT garage to ensure
the waterway is not located
within highway right of way.
Strict environmental regulations must be followed when
working within a state-controlled waterway. A permit is
required prior to this type of
work taking place.
Snow removal Snow
removed from a private
driveway and placed onto
a highway is in violation of
Ohio Revised Code. Placing anything on the highway
could be dangerous to motorists in that they may hit

these obstructions and lose


control of their vehicle. The
offense is considered a first
degree misdemeanor and
carries a maximum penalty
of six months in jail and a
$1,000 fine.
Farming Property
owners should know where
highway right-of-way begins
in relation to a farm field. Its
easy to unknowingly creep
over the line when working fields, which can lead to
maintenance issues for highway personnel. Consult the
local ODOT garage to establish boundaries.
Drainage ODOT personnel can provide guidance
on the proper placement and
size of pipe along farm fields,
lawns and under driveways. A
permit is required before this
type of work can take place.
Signage It is illegal to
place anything within high-

way right-of-way without


permission of ODOT. Signs
placed within highway rightof-way that obstruct the view
of motorists will be removed.
As a general rule, anything
placed behind utility poles
is outside of highway right
of way; however, permission
from private property owners should be received prior
to placing any sign.
We are a resource for
property owners at any time.
If work is being performed
along a state highway or
theres any question as to
what is permissible, contact
ODOT before to be sure the
project is not in violation
of state requirements, said
Slusher.
For Paulding County contact Ross Laukhuf, County
Manager at 419-399-2746
or ross.laukhuf@dot.state.

The three Rs of the


post-holiday season

Christmas is over, we celebrate New Years Day tomorrow and


so its soon time to get back to reality. I will let you determine what
reality means in your own little world. I have my own idea.
Kids are out of school and the traditional classroom learning is
on hold for at least another week or so no readin, writin or rithmetic none of that three-Rs stuff. But there are three-Rs that may
do us all some good as we check-in to what our reality really is all
about. With that in mind let me share with you three Rs that I learn
from.
The first R is rest. After all, we have been working so hard
these past six weeks or so to make Christmas a perfect celebration
for our family and friends. We know that perfect is impossible but
we go to great lengths to achieve perfection. And when its all said
and done, we missed the mark again. It just wasnt exactly the way
we planned.
We tried to do so much. Our goal was to fill the calendar with activities. Every little square on our calendar needed to be filled with
activities. Parties, family gatherings, ball games, caroling, shopping,
wrapping gifts, church services and even more shopping. Wow.
Makes sense that we would be a little tired and so now we rest. Rest
is a good thing.
Now that we have slowed down and we find ourselves resting
we can move to the next R.
We now find ourselves a little rested and in the mood to reflect.
Reflect thats the second R-word. How do we do that? Simple.
For the past six weeks or so, during the busy time, we did some
special things. Why not replay some of those special times in your
mind. Laugh out loud if you want to. Be serious if you must. Tears
are okay. And to be honest, Ive done all of that in recent weeks.
Like so many, its family that brings so much joy. I am so blessed
to have a wonderful wife, two sons, a daughter-in-law, a future
daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. It seems like family is at
the center of all I do and I like that.
For example, I had the joy of having my son from Michigan
surprise us with an early visit and having a midnight chat. Or seeing my 10 year old grandson fly his new remote control helicopter
outside as it helplessly flew over the roof, over U.S. 127 and headed
towards Grover Hill, never to be seen again. And in disbelief we all
started yelling at the helicopter trying to will its way back to us and
then realizing we would never see it again. We all had a good laugh.
Then there was the quiet time my wife and I had together on Christmas night. No one in the quiet house as we shared a few simple
gifts. Something we have done for 42 years and realizing again that
being together far outweighs the value of any gift.
So we rest and reflect on the good things the holiday season
brings and then finally the third R is rejoice.
Why rejoice? Because of who we share our lives with and the
anticipation of doing it all over again in about 11 months.
Rejoice in knowing that because of the birth of a baby on that
first Christmas night, we can continue to prepare for the next celebration in about 11 months.
So rest up, reflect on wonderful memories you just made, and
continue to rejoice and life will truly bring joy to your world!

PAULDING PROGRESS

COMMUNITY
Local DAR chapter meets
PAULDING The General
Horatio N. Curtis Chapter Daughters of the the American Revolution
met Nov. 20 at the St. Paul Lutheran
Church meeting room in Paulding.
Chapter regent Jeanne Calvert
from Oakwood conducted the
opening rituals.
Veteran-Patient
Committee
Chairman Patricia Gottschalk made
a motion that the chapter let her give
out tangerines to veterans at the Fort
Wayne Hospital as a holiday tradition that she has done in the past.
Motion carried.
Copies of the Mayflower Compact was handed out by member
Caroline Zimmerman. She and
others in the chapter either belong to
the Mayflower Society or are eligible to join as they are direct descendants of signers of this most historical document. Discussion was held
on its historical value as compared
to other documents signed at later
dates in US history.
The national defense report was
given on the fact that there is a Presidential proclamation for National
Native American Heritage Month.
President Obama proclaimed,
Native Americans stand among
Americas most distinguished
authors, artists, scientists, and political leaders, and in their accomplishments, they have profoundly
strengthened the legacy we will
leave our children. So, too, have
American Indians and Alaska natives bravely fought to protect this

legacy as members of our Armed


Forces.
Department of Defense statistics
concerning Native American military service were discussed.Among
the most renowned in WWII were
the Navajo Code Talkers who used
their unbreakable code to send tactical messages from 1942 to 1945.
The program was given by
member Mary Clark, titled Six
Buckeye Confederate Generals.
Her talk centered on Gen. Charles
Clark and Gen. Robert Hatton, both
of Lebanon, Gen. Bushrod Johnson
of Belmont County, Gen. Daniel
Reynolds of Centerberg in Knox
County, Gen. Roswell Ripley of
Worthington and Gen. Otho Strahl
of Malta, in Morgan County.
The information for the program
was taken in part from a newspaper
item in the Columbus Dispatch
and other local history. It was remarked that there are active Sons
and Daughters of the Confederacy
groups even though they lost the
war. The war records for the above
six generals can be gotten at the
National Archives by mail or on the
Internet.
Note there was an invitation from
the Lima DAR Chapter to a DAR/
SAR/CAR Christmas luncheon.
There will be no further meetings until March 2015. Any questions about membership or dues,
should be directed to Calvert or
vice-regent Caroline Zimmerman
at 419-258- 2222.

Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer turns 75

The last cookie may be eaten, the last gift opened and it is
time to take down Christmas
decorationsfor another year.
We wont be singing carols
for another year, but the tunes
and words to themwill linger
on just as they have for centuries. One Christmas songthat
delights young as well as old
is, Rudolph the Red Nosed
Reindeer. For years, children have looked forward to
the cartoon of Rudolph and
some cry to see that Rudolph
was laughed at and made fun
of.
But, did you know this
song hasnt been around for
centuries? Even thoughthe
songis an American icon, it
was actually written in 1939
by a department store ad man
who was enduring a personal
tragedyof his own. The department store, Montgomery
Wards, had always purchased
and distributed coloring
books to children as a holiday promotion, but the advertising departmentthought
it would be more cost saving
to have their own in house
book.
This was a time in history
when the United States was
trying to shake off the effects
of the decade long Great Depression. Plus, there were
rumblings of war again in
Europe. The assignment fell
to Robert May, a copywriter
who often times was the life
of the party at many Christmas gatherings.
However, this particular
year, May, the company adman, was having difficulty
summoning up holiday cheer
because his wife was suffering from cancer and medical
bills had placed the family in
debt. May, 33, had a degree
from Dartmouth College and
would rather write the Great
Americannovel instead of
copy for a catalogue.
Given the assignment to
develop an animal story, May
thought a reindeer was a natural for the leading role (not
to mention that his 4-year-old
daughter, Barbara, loved the
reindeers every time she visited the zoo). So, May came

A Penny for
Your Thoughts

By
Nancy Whitaker
up with the idea of a misfit
reindeer ostracized because
of his brightly colored nose.
His physical abnormality
would be used to guide Santas sleigh and save Christmas. Seeking a catchy name
for his assignment, May considered several options before
settling on Rudolph.
As May worked on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer through the summer,
his wifes health worsened.
She passed away in July
1939. Now a widower and a
single father, May refused the
offer of his boss to give the
assignment to someone else.
I needed Rudolph now more
than ever, he later wrote.
Burying his grief, May finished the story in August.
The 89 rhyming phrases
in Rudolph the Red-Nosed
Reindeer got its initial ideas
from ClementMoores A
Visit from St. Nicholas right
from the storys opening line:
Twas the day before Christmas, and all through the
hills; reindeer were playing
... enjoying the spills. Hans
Christian Andersens fairy
tale The Ugly Duckling
also inspired the storyline
as did Mays own childhood
when he endured taunts from
schoolmates for being small
and shy.
Rudolph and I were something alike, the copywriter
told Guideposts magazine in
January 1975. As a child Id
always been the smallest in
the class. Frail, poorly coor-

New Years Eve!

dinated, I was never asked to


join the school teams.
Those familiar with only
the 1964 animated television version of Rudolph the
Red-Nosed Reindeer, which
remains the longest-running
Christmas special in television history a half-century
after its debut on NBC, might
not recognize the original
tale. There is no Hermey the
elf, no Abominable Snow
Monster, not even the Land of
Misfit Toys.
While Rudolph was taunted for his glowing red nose
and disinvited from reindeer
games in Mays story, he did
not live at the North Pole
and was asleep in his house
when Santa Claus, struggling mightily with the fog,
arrived with presents and
realized how the reindeers
radiant snout could help him
complete his Christmas Eve
rounds.
Montgomery Ward had
high hopes for its new 32page
illustrated
booklet
which would be given to childrenvisiting any of their620
locations.
The retailers holiday advertisements touted Rudolph
the Red-Nosed Reindeer as
the rollicking new Christmas verse thats sweeping
the country! That wasnt
just hype. Children snapped
up nearly 2.4 million copies
of the paper-bound book in
1939.
Plans to print another 1.6
million copies the following
year were shelved by paper
shortages due to World War
II, and Rudolph remained
on hiatus until the conflicts
conclusion. When the reindeer story returned in 1946,
it was more popular than ever
as Montgomery Ward handed
out 3.6 million copies of the
book.
During the war years, May
married a fellow Montgomery
Ward employee and became a
father again, but he still struggled financially. In 1947, the
retailers board of directors,
stirred either by the holiday
spirit or belief that the story
lacked revenue-making po-

tential, signed the copyright


for Rudolph the Red-Nosed
Reindeer over to May.
In short order, May licensed a commercial version
of the book along with a full
range of Rudolph-themed
merchandise including puzzles, View-Master reels, snow
globes, mugs and slippers
with sheep wool lining and
leather soles.
In 1949, songwriter Johnny Marks, who happened to
be Mays brother-in-law, set
Rudolphs story to music.
After Bing Crosby reportedly turned down the chance,
singing cowboy Gene Autry
recorded the song, which sold
2 million copies in the first
year and remains one of the
best-selling tunes of all time.
The song and merchandise
sales made May financially
comfortable, but hardly rich.
After leaving Montgomery
Ward in 1951 to manage the
Rudolph commercial empire,
May returned to his former
employer seven years later.
He continued to work as a
copywriter until his 1971 retirement.
By the time he died five
years later, Rudolph the
Red-Nosed Reindeer had become a piece of modern folklore and a metaphor for overcoming obstacles, embracing
differences and recognizing
everyones unique potential.
Do you recall when the
story of Rudolph came out?
Have you ever thought about
the meaning of the song? Let
me know and Ill give you a
Penny for Your Thoughts.

Resolutions I can keep


Im not sure how 2014
slipped by me, but here we
are at the end of it and its
time to compile my list of
New Years resolutions for
gardening. Im kind of afraid
to look at the list I made last
year at this time, because like
most people, I have a hard
time sticking to most of the
resolutions I make.
Resolutions are actually
goals we set with the idea
of bettering ourselves or our
lives or those of the people
around us. But resolutions
are made to be broken, right?
Does anyone ever really keep
them?
They do if they set reasonable goals. For example, it
would do me no good to make
a resolution in which I vow to
always put my garden tools
away when Im finished with
them so that I can find them
when I need them. It just aint
gonna happen.
So Ive made a list of resolutions that arent quite so lofty
and maybe, just maybe, Ill be
able to keep them this year.
1. I will keep my fingernails
trimmed short so that when
I forget to wear my gloves
when working in my garden,
my nails will be easier to
clean.
2. I will not stress over not
getting all the ripe veggies
picked on time. Sharing with

In the
Garden

By
Kylee Baumle
the foragers (birds, insects,
etc.) is a kind and generous
thing to do. They need to eat
too.
3. When I have failed to
label new plants as they are
put into the ground and later I
cant remember their name, I
will be content with just calling them a lovely plant or
a pretty flower.
4. Since I have procrastination perfected to an art form,
Im not going to stress about
getting my seeds planted this
spring. Im going to wait
until late in the season to do
it because past experience has
taught me that they eventually
catch up. Usually.
5. I will learn to love duckweed. I will learn to love
duckweed. I will learn to love

duckweed.
6. If I neglect to change
my clothes before heading
out to the garden (Im just
going to cut a few flowers for
a bouquet...) and by some
crazy quirk of fate, they end
up uncleanably dirty two
hours later, I will simply add
them to my box of gardening
clothes. That wardrobe needs
updating from time to time,
too.
7. I will use only my
red-handled pruners so theyll
be easier to find when I leave
them somewhere in the garden. (See what I did there?)
8. I will forgive myself
when I dont get all the weeds
removed from the garden.
Growing native plants is
trendy and good for the environment. We all need to do
our part.
Now thats a list of resolutions I can live with. I think I
can keep every single one of
those. Except for maybe number three. I might just be a little too obsessive to achieve
contentedness where thats
concerned. But seven out of
eight isnt bad.
Happy New Year.

Precautions to take while


working in cold weather
By Mark Holtsberry
Education specialist
Paulding SWCD
All of us can reduce potential frostbite, hypothermia and other weather related injuries as
they work in extreme cold and wet conditions by
wearing the right clothing and taking other precautions. Clothing should be at the top of your list
when working outside. Also, remember weather
conditions and possibilities of wind, rain or snow
and how long will you be exposed to the elements.
And as you well know, in the past, we have had
several days with below zero temperatures and
bitterly cold wind chills. But, still services have to
be provided including the delivery of mail, propane, fuel oil, newspaper, garbage pick up, etc.
Farmers who have livestock, still have to feed,
break ice in water tanks or troughs, or just plain
cutting wood or loading stored grain. Even though
it may be tempting for some people to tough it out
or work through it, prolonged exposure to cold,
wet and windy conditions can be dangerous, even
at temperatures above freezing.
Here are some suggestions that I either heard
from some older fellows or experience has taught
me.
Wear several layers of clothing. Trapped air
between layers form protective insulation. My
grandfather worked on the railroad and he always told me that the fellas he worked with always wore baggy pants as an outside layer.
Wear warm gloves and keep an extra pair in
case the first pair becomes wet. Sometimes I
wear two pair of gloves.
Wear a hat that provides protection for your
head, ears and face in extreme conditions.
About 40 percent of your body heat can be lost

when the head is uncovered. And if you are like


me, less hair means cold head and you really
need to tug down that hat over your ears, and
sometimes I wear two stocking hats.
Wear good footwear with warm socks. Footwear should fit a little loose. This helps blood
flow to the feet and increase the risk of a cold
injury.
Wear synthetic, wool or silk clothing next to
the skin to wick away moisture. Cotton clothing
can lose insulating properties when it becomes
damp or wet from sweat, rain or snow.
Avoid getting wet. Did you know that you
lose body heat 24 times faster when clothing is
wet?
Take short frequent breaks to warm your
hands, feet, face, or just get out of the elements.
Avoid exhaustion and fatigue because energy
is needed to keep muscles warm plus this is a
time where you could over do it and get hurt.
Drink warm beverages such as tea or hot
chocolate. Avoid caffeine (pop or coffee) and
alcohol.
Work in pairs. Working together gets the job
done faster plus there is good conversation.
Carry a cell phone. I do, even if it is a simple
phone to understand.
Weather plays a major role in our daily lives.
Preparing for it will certainly make our daily
living less stressful and somewhat enjoyable.
Think spring.
Our annual tree sales continue at the Extension office. Stop in and place an order. Delivery
will be in April.

education specialist. His successor, Staci Hiler
Miller, will continue writing weekly columns.

Romans voyage: A World War II hero

Saving the life of an enemy in 1944

By Gerald Sinn
Part 2 of 3
In last weeks first part Roman
Lakers daughter, Mary, and two
granddaughters from Syracuse,
Ind., visited Italy and discovered
where Roman served as a medic
during WW II. Several war stories were also incorporated with
Lakers journey. In todays story
we read of his relationship with
his fellow service men as well as
the enemy.
Today, Laker is 93 years old
and lives on the family farm near
Cecil.
A Nazi saved

A Nazi prisoner-of-war
(POW) in Tent City was desperate. He needed a doctors attention. He was bleeding and he
was dying. Shrapnel opened his
stomach and had also cut-up his
arm.
Other American doctors and
medics refused to operate because of the Nazi inhumanities
that passed through the 17th
General. Then Medic Cpl. Roman Laker was asked to make a
choice to save a life, that others
would not. Romans comment,
He was just another human being, who wanted to live. On an
operating table, in a tent, in Naples, Italy, that day in December
of 1944, Roman closed up the
bleeding stomach wound and
saved the mans arm and his
life.
In the year 2000, a German
boy visited Marys home and
family in Syracuse. He was an
exchange student for Marys son,
Joshua, who visited Europe. Roman befriended the boy for three

months in Marys home. He


was so kind to the boy, Mary
explained.
During the visit, the thought
must have crossed Romans
mind, this German boys grandfather could have been in the
War, in Tent City, on that day,
in Naples. Roman made a good
decision for humanity that day
when others did not.
The Kings hunting grounds
It seemed World War II
stopped for two months in late
November and early January,
1945. Their was too much snow
in the mountains, too much mud
on the ground. It was at this time
the strength of America came
pouring into Italy. Bombers,
fighter planes and weapons had
come from American factories
in high numbers. The highly
trained 10th Mountain Infantry
soldiers were added to the mix.
The 10th soldiers were rookies,
but they were trained warriors.
They would catch the critical
eye of the President of the United States. He agreed, he needed
them.
In January three 10th Mountain Regiments the 85th, 86th
and 87th, were transported to
Quercianella, Italy, near Piza.
It was like a multitude of U.S.
soldiers united in Staging Area
#3, known as The Kings Hunting Grounds. It was a final USA
training area. In the two past
years these guys were trained in
Wisconsin and in the Colorado
mountains. (King Victor Emmanual was the hunter.)
Many Paulding County soldiers would have been at Kings

Ranch. One was PFC. Otis


Pease, from Latty. In later years,
Otiss son Paul would marry
Laura Phlipot, a sister to Romans wife, Christine. Roman
has no memory of meeting Otis
at the Kings Ranch, but 10 years
later they did meet at the wedding in Paulding.
The 10th Mountain Division
On Jan. 5, 1945, the war was
uppermost on the minds of the
10th Mountain Division. In three
days, the 10th Mountains 86th
Regiment, 1st Bn. (Cpl. Roman)
entered the front lines. This was
the first combat engagement for
the 10th Mountain in WW II.
They were in Bagni di Lucca,
two steps from the Riva Ridge
mountain range, side by side
with Mount Belvedere. Both
were the most important mountain ranges to conquer to get to
the Po Valley.
Riva Ridge
Riva Ridge was a total of five
mountain tops seven miles
long, 1,800 feet average height.
On the evening of Feb. 18, 700
men made a daring night climb
and successful assault against the
Nazis on the five mountains. By
daybreak the 86th Regiment had
taken the five mountain tops at
the cost of only one injury. Romans medic crew had an easy
night.
The surprise attack was a great
victory but the Nazis were not
easy. They staged a five-day ferocious counter attack. The cost
was 17 Americans killed, 47 injured, but by Feb. 25, the 86th
Regiment 1st Bn. was standing
high in their foxholes on top of
the mountains at Riva Ridge.
Mount Belvedere
As the U.S. assault on Riva
Ridge was under way, the 10th
Mountain picked six more battalions for a night attack on Mt.
Belvedere, the next mountain
range. General George Hays
gave the order, Until first light,
no small guns fire... only hand
grenades and bayonets.
The surprise night attack
worked again. The first night
stats were low; one killed in action (KIA), four wounded in action (WIA). But it was a victory.
The 10th Mountains men were
standing on every mountain top,
including Mt. Torraccia, the final
hill on Mt. Belevedere.
Roman Laker and his crew of
medics waited at the bottom of
Mt. Belvedere the next morning.
This was easy for his medics
four injuries only. But his week
had just begun.
The counterattacks later, however, turned out to be actual war
battles. This was man-to-man
combat. Every tree and rock
was protected. Impact of bullets slammed into flesh. Direct

sualties counted up as Mt. Belvedere verses Riva Ridge. The


losses: 186 deaths in the 10th
Div., 730 wounded. The number
of Nazis killed and injured was
insurmountable. This was war in
1945, but this was also a victory.
Geneva Convention
Again there was Nazi disregard for the Geneva Convention. Nazi snipers attempted to
wipe out an 86th 3rd Battalion
Aid Station of medics. But they
were stopped. The Nazis actually
fired at medics carrying wounded men off the ridge wounding
and killing the 86ths medics
(Romans crew) on Feb. 20. On
March 2, this whole mountain
range in Italy was USA controlled. The 10th Mountain Division had won its first two great
battles and had given millions of
Americans back home the hope
they so desired.
TIME Magazine
Even as they rested from their
victories, Time Magazine told
the people at home of the praise
for the 10th Mountain Division
from the generals in Europe. It
was praise for the 86th, 1st Battalion at Riva Ridge and the heroics of the 85th, 86th and 87th
in the battle of Mt. Belvedere and
Mt. della Torraccia.
The newspapers called them
the Elite Soldiers, the BlueBlood Troops. Now these ski
troopers would be known as the
Mountain Infantry; all of them
entitled to wear the blue and
silver Combat Infantrymans
Badge (or the Combat Medical
Badge).
In the months of March and
April, 1945, these mountain
fighters would lead America and
its Allies to an unbelievable termination of World War II.
The March Offensive
At dawn on March 3 it began
the first roar of artillery. A gun
roared every second, for 20 long
minutes. It was a lethal Nazi artillery barrage over the heads of the
waiting Yanks on the front lines.
The deeper the 86th pushed, the
more desperate the Nazi resistance.
One lieutenant put it, so
much shrapnel was flying over
(his) foxhole you could stick
your bayonet up in the air and
get it sharpened in seconds.
The victory for Mt. della Spe
took only four days, but it took
146 American lives, and 512
wounded. The Yanks, however,
were four miles closer, going
downhill into Po Valley. Now
the Nazi line of supply was cut
on Rt. 64 the Nazi food highway.
There was no war on April 12,
1945, the day President Franklin D. Roosevelt died. Perhaps
God sent a cloudy, rainy day, so
that America and our free-world
could pause in war to honor our

Roman Laker as a young soldier during the early 1940s. Laker served as a medic while saving the lives of those on both
sides during World War II.
great, fallen President.
The Spring Offensive
April 14 to April 16, there was
no surprise, the Nazis were waiting this time. The day was April
14, 1945. It was the bloodiest
day for the 10th Mountain, in
spite of extensive bombing by
U.S. artillery and aircraft. It started in Torre and Issu, Italy, near
Hills #913, #909 and #903, just
north of Mt. della Spe.
The size of this battleground
was small, only 3.5 miles square.
The battle took only three days,
but the cost was enormous
1,336 casualties, which included 285 men killed in the 10th
Mountain. The medics were
handling as many as 427 injuries
per day.
Mine fields were extremely
dangerous and hideous in this
war (the cowards way of killing). The 86ths Company G had
61 men killed just in two small
towns from mine explosions.
So brave were our soldiers who
swept for mines. Nazis used
hickory nuts in some minebombs. They were so desperate
for supplies they used hickory
nuts to kill American GIs.
Soldiers would actually fistfight just to sleep next to Romans foxhole at night thinking they would live another day.
Roman Bud Laker saved lives,
his medic crews did hundreds of
medical operations without ever
seeing the inside of a medical
college classroom. They did it
with bullets and jagged shrapnel
whistling over their shoulders.
One of the injured, in the
Spring Offensive on April 14,
was Second Lt. Bob Dole, 10th
Mtn. 1st Bn, 85th. future senator and presidential hopeful. His
arm injury was listed as serious,
and would affect him the rest of

The Breakout
April 17-April 20. At about
4 p.m. on April 16, the gallant
10th Mountain 87th Regiment
captured Tole, Italy, from the
Nazis, under brutal, heroic combat fighting. The Spring Offensive was the last great battle for
the 10th Mountain blue-blood
troops. From Tole it was all
downhill, all the way to the Po
River.
All three regiments, (85th,
86th, 87th) were moving fast
the fastest units in the entire
5th Army, it was noted. The
Mountain Infantry, moved down
Rt. 64. They moved the last
15 miles, capturing town after
town, taking Nazi prisoners by
the thousands. Tanks of the 1st
Armored Div. moved with them.
By April 20, at 8 a.m., the 85th
troopers did a break out into Po
Valley the first 5th Army Unit
to do it. They captured the Po
Valley. The Nazis were running
beyond the river!
The tanks, the medics, the Nazis
It was near this place the Nazis fired at Romans Red Cross
truck. They missed the target,
but blasted the Red Cross trailer
attached, with a Panzer cannon
shell.
As a prelude, to show the
Nazis how cowardly they were
to attack Americas medics at
war the first armored tanks assembled a tank strike against the
running Nazis. Tanks were lined
up 20 or so across, high on the
banks of the Po, ready to make a
statement.

LIMA Wayne Traces
wrestling team claimed a
fourth place finish in the Lima
Central Catholic Holiday Invitation on Saturday. In the 18
team field the Paulding Panthers took 12th.
Carey captured the tournament title with 305 points
followed by Coldwater (267),
Williamsburg (191.5) and
Wayne Trace (164.5). Paulding finished with 110 points.
Raider mentor George Clemens was unsure of what to
expect of his team as it was
competing with several components missing, including
all seniors out of the line up.
However, the underclassmen
would step up and not disappoint in the 18-team tournament.
Wayne Trace claimed three
individual championships in
the tournament.
Max Rassman, George Clemens, and Ruger Goeltzenleuchter would be crowned
champions at this years edition of the seasonal tournament. Braxton Asher would
be the only other Raider to

find his way to the podium


with a third place finish.
Rassman would start things
off for the Raiders in the 113
pound weight class. He would
simply go 5-0 for the day and
garner all of his wins via
pins in the first period of all
matches.
Max really wrestled well
today. He was aggressive and
as his confidence grows, he
just elevates his wrestling,
stated Coach Clemens. The
freshman would earn his
first ever holiday crown and
also earn the special honor of
wrestler with the most pins on
the day with five.
Following up in the 120
pound class, Clemens IV
would be crowned champion
again for his third time in as
many tries. He would capture
wins with three pins and a
tech fall on the day.
George was offensive
minded today and really put
some points up. He had a few
miscues, but was solid and
was never really in jeopardy
today, controlling his matches from start to finish, commented Coach Clemens.

Unbeaten Raiders pull


away for win over Wildcats
By KEVIN
WANNEMACHER

Sportswriter
MILLER CITY Wayne
Trace scored more points in
the third quarter than they did
in the first half as the Raiders pulled away in the second
half for a 53-37 win over host
Miller City Saturday night.
The Raiders led 19-15 at
the intermission but scored
20 points in the third period
to open up a 39-24 advantage
at the end of three quarters.
Wayne Trace then outpointed
the Wildcats 14-13 in the final stanza to seal the victory.
With the victory, the Raiders remain unbeaten at 6-0 on
the season while the Wildcats
drop to 4-2 overall.
Leading 19-15 at the intermission, Wayne Trace took
control of the contest in the
third quarter.
After Miller Citys Adam
Niese hit one of two free
throws to start the second
half scoring, the Raiders
took advantage of a Wildcat
turnover to get a pair of Luke
Miller foul shots and a David
Sinn basket for a 23-16 advantage.
Following a Wildcat miss,
two Miller 3-pointers sandwiched around a Wildcat
basket from Adam Drummelsmith gave Wayne Trace
a 29-18 lead.
I thought we came out
and played pretty well, especially in the second half,
noted Raider head coach Jim
Linder. We were able to
get the ball inside to David
(Sinn) and that helped open
up some good looks for Luke
(Miller) and Corbin (Linder).
We got everybody involved
and it allowed us to take advantage of some good scoring opportunities.
Miller City did get within
32-24 on a Drummelsmith
3-pointer but the Raiders

closed the quarter with seven


straight points.
A 3-point play by Sinn,
along with buckets from Miller and Sinn, expanded the
Wayne Trace lead to 39-24
after three periods.
Luke and Corbin each hit
some big shots for us, Linder
continued. I thought David
had a very good game inside
as well. We got the ball inside
to Cole early on too. We had a
lot of kids contribute tonight.
Two Jared Snyder baskets
pulled Miller City within 4128 early in the fourth quarter
but the Wildcats would get no
closer.
A Corbin Linder 3-pointer
and a Miller basket expanded
the advantage to 46-28 and
Wayne Trace cruised from
there to the victory.
We had some sickness to
deal with and you dont know
what to expect sometime
coming off a holiday break,
Linder concluded. For the
most part, I was pretty pleased
with the effort though.
David Sinn paced the
Raiders with 17 points while
Luke Miller added 15 points
and Corbin Linder chipped in
13. Corbin Linder and Cole
Shepherd each recorded six
rebounds with Luke Miller

Linder and Shepherd both had
three steals for the Raiders.
Adam Niese bucketed 11
points for Miller City while
Jared Snyder and Adam
Drummelsmith added nine
each. Jacob Kuhlman chipped
in eight for the Wildcats.
Drummelsmith recorded seven rebounds with Niese getting six. Niese also had three
steals and three assists for
Miller City.
In the junior varsity game,
Wayne Trace posted a 40-32
win over the Wildcats as the
Raiders won three of the four
quarters in the contest.
The Raiders led 9-5 after
one quarter and widened the
margin to 21-16 at the intermission. Each team scored
ten points in the third period.
Brady Stabler had 10 points
for the Raiders with Seth Saylor and Jayden Sherry chipping in nine each. Saylor also
had six rebounds for Wayne
Trace while Stabler dished
out four assists.
Mitchell Barlage topped
Miller City with 11 points and
seven rebounds.
The Raiders return to action on Jan. 8 as Wayne Trace
hosts Edgerton in the Green
Meadows Conference opener.

Max Rassman
5-0 on the day
day, stated Clemens.
The Paulding Panthers
were led by Adam Deatrick,
who finished second in the
170-pound class. With a solid
showing on Saturday Deatrick managed to capture his
100th wrestling career win as
a Panther.
Senior Aaron Mock placed
fourth in the 160 pound
weight class while teammate
Ryan Woodring, a freshman,
also had a fourth place finish at 106. Dakota Valdez, a
senior for the maroon-andwhite took runner-up honors
at 220.
Other wrestlers garnering
points for the Raiders were
Hunter Showalter 11th, Carl
Elliott 12th, Caleb Schultz
ninth, Brandon Laney ninth,
Dylan Jackson 14th, and Colten Hower 12th.
Overall, I am satisfied
with the teams effort today.
We were void in four weight
classes and had several quality wrestlers not competing,
but the youth of this team is
really stepping up. Once we
get our experience back, and
can field a whole team, I feel
we can compete with anyone.
We have a couple of weeks to
get healthy and get ready for a
next tri-match at Wayne Trace
on Jan. 17, finished Clemens.

Lady Panthers drop two in


Bryan holiday tournament
By JIM LANGHAM
Sportswriter
BRYAN The Lady Panthers dropped two games at
the Lady Bear Holiday Classic in Bryan this past weekend. On Friday night, the local squad was dominated by
Stryker, 55-33. The following
night Paulding jumped off to
a good start and then faded
to lose to Bryan, 44-28 in the
consolation game.
In the game for third place,
the Panthers came out on fire
and jumped to a 14-6 advantage at the end of the first
quarter. In that eight minutes, senior Suzanne Reinhart
scored seven of the Paulding
points to help carry the local
squad to the first quarter advantage.

Things turned around
quickly, however, in the second quarter when the Paulding shooting turned icy and
the Lady Bears ran off 16
straight points to grab a 2214 advantage. The Panthers
finally scored on a free throw
by Audrey Manz with 31 seconds remaining in the half.
Then, just before the buzzer, the Panthers Faith Vogel pulled off a 3-point play
but the maroon-and -white
walked off the floor at the
half, trailing, 24-18.
This was a switch; I just
wish that we could have left
things turned around, commented Paulding head coach
Lyndsi Schultz. We usually
have a bad first quarter and
then spend the rest of the
game trying to catch up. This
time we had a great start but
then we couldnt protect our

We didnt change anything for the rest of the game.
Everything was just the same;
we just stopped being aggressive, continued Schultz.

Mistakes haunt WT
in loss to Lancers

By KEVIN
WANNEMACHER
Sportswriter
VAN WERT When you
commit 26 turnovers, it
makes it very difficult to pick
up victories in high school
basketball.
The Wayne Trace Lady
Raiders did just that last Tuesday night at Lincolnview and
the Lancers took advantage
by posting a 56-45 victory in
non-league action.
Lincolnview
benefited
from a pair of big efforts by
Hannah McCleery and Julia
Thatcher, who led the Lancers in scoring with 20 points
each.
McCleery added four rebounds, three assists and four
steals to go along with her 20
points while Thatcher added
six boards and three steals for
the Lancers, who move to 5-2
on the season.

However, the game came

mitted numerous unforced
turnovers that led to 22 Lincolnview points.
We have to do a better
job of taking care of the basketball, commented Raider
head coach Bethany Hughes.
Too many mistakes and a lot
of them were just unforced
errors on our part. We need to
clean that up.
It was a bounce-back victory for Lincolnview, which
was coming off a loss in
Northwest Conference action
to Allen East last week.
It was good to see the girls
respond and get a good win,
commented
Lincolnview
head coach Dan Williamson.
I didnt know how we would
come out but we were able to
make enough plays tonight.
Defensively, I thought we did
a much better job in the second half.
Wayne Trace led only briefly in the first quarter, the last
of which came on a pair of
Danae Myers free throws to
make it 12-11 Raiders.
However, the Lancers answered with two late buckets
from Ashton Bowersock to
post a 15-11 advantage after
eight minutes of action.

of three straight Wayne Trace
turnovers and turned them
into points.
Thatcher hit one of two foul
shots for Lincolnview before consecutive buckets by
Thatcher, Alena Looser and
Bowersock pushed the Lancer lead to 24-15.
Following a timeout by
Coach Hughes, the Raiders
got consecutive buckets from
Erin Mohr and Gudakunst to
help the visitors pull within
25-22 at the intermission.
Wayne Trace then tied
the contest at 33-33 early in
the third quarter on a Mohr
bucket before Lincolnview
responded. The Lancers finished the quarter with eight
straight points to post a 41-33
lead after three periods.
McCleery, who did not play
in the second quarter due to
being in foul trouble, made
her presence felt in the third
stanza.
The Lancer guard scored
six points in the stanza while
adding a pair of assists and
two offensive rebounds that
led to baskets to spark the
Lincolnview offense.
Two free throws by Bowersock started the eight point
Lincolnview run before baskets by Thatcher, Katlyn

Wendel and McCleery closed


out the spurt.
Wayne Trace got as close as
46-40 in the fourth quarter after two Mohr free throws but
the Raiders were unable to
get any closer. Three straight
turnovers on its next three
possessions doomed any rally hopes for Wayne Trace
and the Lancers put the game
away.
Lincolnview outrebounded
Wayne Trace 32-29 on the
night while the Lancers committed 21 turnovers compared
to Wayne Traces 26.
Erin Mohr led all scorers
on the night with 25 points
to pace Wayne Trace. Danae Myers picked up nine
rebounds for the Raiders
with Gracie Gudakunst dishing out five assists. Hollie
Wannemacher also had three
steals for the Raiders.
Wayne Trace falls to 3-3 on
the season.
Lincolnviews junior varsity moved to 5-2 on the season with a 44-30 win over the
Raiders.
Brooke Sinn had seven
points, seven rebounds and
six assists for Wayne Trace,
which falls to 2-4 on the season. Courtney Mead chipped
in six points for the Raiders.

FORT JENNINGS A 17-0
run to start the game proved
to be plenty for the Wayne

the Raiders rolled past Fort

action Saturday afternoon.
The Raiders went on to post

Wayne Trace is now 4-3 on
the season while Fort Jennings drops to 0-9.

with two Temple buckets to
make it 21-3.
After the two teams traded
baskets in the second quarter, Wayne Trace scored nine
straight points to widen the
margin. Baskets by Temple,
Mohr and Courtney Mead

to set the lead at 32-5.
Fort Jennings used a late
trey from Gabby Clippinger
and a bucket by Erin Osting
to trim the deficit to 34-10 at
halftime.
The Musketeers did win
each of the final two quarters,
outscoring Wayne Trace 7-6
in the third stanza and 12-11

(55 percent). The Raiders
won the battle of the boards,
47-31, but also committed
more turnovers, 29-28.

Raider wrestlers continue to excel Lady Archers 3rd in 49 Classic


HAVILAND Coming into
the season, the 2014 edition of
Wayne Trace wrestling would
showcase some experienced veteran wrestlers and would have
underclassmen filling in holes
in the team. Coach George Clemens would lean on his returning state and district qualifiers
and develop several freshman
and sophomores on the team. It
seems that mix is paying off.
This last week found the
team in dual matches with several GMC opponents. The redwhite-and-blue would face off
against Fairview and Lincolnview last Tuesday. The Raiders
would handle the Lancers easily
in the first contest, and then, a
much anticipated match against
the GMC Apache squad. Wayne
Trace would easily handle the
Apaches, as well, 58-18, and retaining their unblemished record
against GMC squads.
On Thursday, the Raiders
would face off against long time
conference strong hold Ayersville
and again would push their record
to 4-0 in the conference. Next up
would be a strong Tinora squad
that Coach Clemens knew would
be tough opponent for his team.
Tinora recently went to Coldwater and beat some solid teams
in a duel meet tournament last
week. I am sure they are ready to
give us all we want, commented Clemens.
The teams would trade off
matches at different weight
classes until eventually the Raiders would string together some
wins and maintain their undefeated record in the conference.
The last stop on the week long
tour would be at the Lakota Duals in Kansas, Ohio, on Saturday, Dec. 20. Being short three
seniors, it was unclear how the
team would fair in Lakota, but
they would not disappoint. They
would garner wins over Ada,
Lakota, and Ottawa-Glandorf,
but would drop a close contest
with division II Rossford.
I thought we wrestled really solid as a team today. Obviously, we lean on our wrestlers
that have that mat experience,
and our seniors. With three
of them out, you never know
what to expect, but I was really

impressed with how our young


guys stepped up and wrestled
today. Several of the freshman
and sophomores had big wins,
and you get excited seeing that
next group improve and gain
experience as we move through
the season, stated Coach Clemens. We start six freshman and
sophomores, and this team will
get even better as they continue
to gain varsity mat time.
The Raiders had two wrestlers
go undefeated on the day, George
Clemens IV and Ruger Goeltzenleuchter.
Ruger is a district qualifier and
George a state qualifier from last
year, and they both wrestled great
today for us, stated Clemens.
George would eventually be
named the most outstanding
wrestler of the tournament by the
competing teams coaches.
We just need to keep improving and get some kids healthy
that arent 100 per cent right
now. Once that happens, we
should be competitive with anyone. We have met most of the
GMC teams and have remained
unbeaten in the conference,
which is really exciting. January
should be a great month for us,
finished Clemens.

ANTWERP In the consolation game of the Route 49
Classic the Antwerp Lady Archers did a couple things they
are not accustomed to doing.
First, they dominated the Edgerton Lady Bulldogs. in the
opening quarter to open an
11-point lead. Secondly, they
got down by as many as five
points midway through the
fourth stanza and fought back
to post a 40-37 win.
I was really proud of the
way we came back when we
got down in the fourth. We
could have folded but we
made the right plays and got
the defensive stops to get the
lead back and then hang on
for the win, said head coach
Kevin Taylor.
The Archers lost to Hicksville on opening night 38-26
while the Bulldogs fell in
double overtime to Edon 5855, to set up the consolation
game.
Late in the third quarter
Peyton Short connected on
a 3-pointer to put the Archers in front 30-29 but the
Lady Bulldogs closed out the
quarter with a couple of free
throws from Shayla Sleesman
who also drilled a triple in the
fourth period followed by a
Natalee Landel free throw to
put Edgerton in control 35-30
with 4:05 remaining.
Antwerps Rachel Williamson hit a close range two
pointer to get the Archers to
within three 35-32 with 2:54
remaining. At that point Avery Braaten took over offensively for the Archers scoring
the next five points including
a offensive put-back on a
Peyton Short miss. The 5-0
Antwerp run forced an Edgerton timeout with 52.5 seconds
remaining and the blue-andwhite in front 37-35.
Out of the timeout the Archers defense forced a tie

Panthers fail to climb


Wildcats mountain
By JIM LANGHAM
Sportswriter
PAULDING The Paulding Panthers boys basketball
team fell behind Miller City
early on Dec. 22 and couldnt
climb the mountain to get
back into serious contention
for the game. The Wildcats
roared out and mounted a
22-9 first quarter advantage
over the home team that
proved to be deadly.
The Panthers started to pull
themselves together in the
second quarter, outscoring
the Wildcats, 12-11, but still
trailed by a count of 33-21 at
the halfway mark.
Miller city edged Paulding,
19-17 in the third quarter to
fend off the local squad and
pull away for a 15-point 6853 win.
The outmatched on the
boards and that proved to be
an advantage for them, said
Paulding head coach Shawn
Brewer. We made too many
turnovers and that hurt us as
well.
For the contest, Paulding

turned the ball over 14 times


compared to just six turnovers for the Wildcats. On the
boards, Miller City hauled
the ball down 26 times compared to just 16 caroms for
Paulding. Of that rebounding
advantage, Miller City outmanned Paulding 15-1 on the
offensive boards.
Powerful Miller City,
whose win increased the
Wildcat record to 4-1, was
lead in scoring by Adam
Niese who poured in 22
points while Adam Drummelsmith added 17 points for
the visitors.
Once again, Alex Arellano
led all scorers for the game to
lead Pauldings offense with
24 points. Pauldings record
now stands at 3-3.
Quite obviously we are
going to have to become
more aggressive on the
boards, said Brewer. We
are going to be having some
hard-working practices to
try to correct some of these
things.

round of the Route 49 classic


held at Antwerp last Monday,
the Hicksville Lady Aces held
the Lady Archers to just 26
points en route to a 38-26 win.
The Aces took control early with a 9-1 lead mid way
through the first period.
In the low scoring affair the
Archers managed to pull to
within three at 13-10 on a two
point goal by Peyton Short
with 2:18 remaining in the
second.
Hicksville was on top 15-10
at intermission and their lead
ballooned to as many as 13
in the third quarter. Freshman
Addison Bergman and senior
Rachel Schroeder connected
on back-to-back field goals
for a 27-14 Aces advantage.
Bergman, at 6-foot-1, led
the Aces with 13 points.
Whenever they needed
points they would look to
Bergman. She is tall and could
score on the inside, said Antwerp coach Kevin Taylor.
In the fourth period the
Archers outscored the Aces
19-11 and was able to pull
to within eight on an Annie
Miesle bucket with 6:43 remaining, but the blue-andwhite would get no closer.
Kiana Recker netted nine
points for the Archers.

up, giving the ball back to


Antwerp. Kiana Recker was
fouled on the Antwerp possession and connected on one
of two tosses to give the Archers a little breathing room
at 38-35 with 34 seconds
showing on the clock.
Sleesman was fouled with
18.9 seconds remaining and
calmly hit both of her attempts to pull the Bulldogs
to within one at 38-37. Down
the stretch both teams turned
it over and with the Archers in
possession with three seconds
remaining Recker was fouled.
The 5-foot-7 junior who had
missed five free throws earlier, went to the line and was
nothing but net on her two
tosses to ice the game for the
Archers, giving them their
second win of the season.
Tonight we just came together more as a team. For us
to win we have to do it as a
team. Overall, I was pleased
but we could have been better
at the foul line, said coach
Taylor. The Archers were just
11 for 22 at the line.
Peyton Short, who has seen
limited playing time due to a
neck injury led the Lady Archers with 13 points including three goals from behind
the arc. Also in double digits
for the winning Archers was
Braaten with 11.
In the championship game
the Aces from Hicksville held
Edon to just three points in
the second half to win the
2014 classic 38-19.

WAYNE TRACE LOCAL SCHOOLS - JANUARY 2015 NEWSLETTER


SUPERINTENDENTS MESSAGE
By STEPHEN ARNOLD
The administration, faculty, and staff of Wayne
Trace Local Schools hope that you are having a
blessed holiday season and look forward to serving the students of our great school district in
2015 and beyond.
Speaking of 2015, we are actively seeking nominations for the Wayne Trace Staff Hall of Fame
Class of 2015. Should you be interested in nominating a worthy former staff member, please
contact either Mrs. Ann Olwin or me in the central office, and we will get a nomination form
sent to you in a timely manner.
In academic news, the first semester has now
come to an end in what is to be remembered as a
year of transition for public schools in the state
of Ohio. As our faculty and staff continues to
introduce the new content standards to our students in all three school buildings, we remain
optimistic that our students will be well prepared
for the new PARCC assessments and end-ofcourse exams that are coming our way during the
second semester of this school year. The Ohio
Department of Education, in hopes of raising the
bar for all students, is mandating several new
concepts this school year, and we believe we
have done very well in preparing ourselves for
these changes through a variety of professional
development activities for our faculty and staff.
Now, we must continue to introduce material,
assess our students growth, and constantly evaluate our system for delivering this material to
our students. With that said, I wish to elaborate
on one of my constant themes: Continued collaboration between school and home is essential for
all students be as successful as possible, and the
administration, faculty, & staff wish to thank all
of our parents, grandparents, and guardians for
their continued support of our great school
district.
Speaking further of appreciation, we would like
to thank all of our senior citizens who attended
the annual Senior Citizens Luncheon on December 11. Your continued support of our school
district is very much appreciated, and we hope
that you enjoyed both an excellent meal and
some festive music provided by our high school
music department. Thanks also go out to everyone involved in making this program possible,
especially Mrs. Karen Wagonrod, who one again
organized and coordinated the event.
Congratulations go out to our three music
teachers: Miss Sharon Spinner, Miss Louise
Vranesevic, and Mrs. Ann Wieland for coordinating and directing this years holiday concerts
at their respective buildings. We would like to
thank these teachers for continuing to bring performing arts education to our students. Thanks
also go out to Mrs. Joni Wenninger, who plays a
key role in many of our musical performances.
Finally, a tremendous thank you goes out to
our staff and student organizations for the many
Christmas events they sponsored and supported,
which allowed people right here in our community to have a more joyous Christmas. Not only do
our teachers and staff members provide a quality
education, they also motivate our students to
give back to others. After all, the real purpose of
our lives is to give what were able to give to
other people.
As always, if you have questions or concerns
about your childs educational experience at
Wayne Trace, feel free to contact your building
principal or superintendent.
Go Raiders!

FREE CHILD SCREENING


A free screening has been scheduled for Friday,
January 16, for children from birth to age 5 years.
Children will be screened for development, hearing, speech and vision. Screenings will be held at
Paulding Elementary School from 8:30 to 11:00
a.m. and at Oakwood Elementary School from
12:30 to 3:00 p.m. If school is delayed or
cancelled on that day, screenings will be held on

April or early May these same students will take
what is called the End of Year Assessment (EOY)
in the same subject areas. Students will receive a
score on each assessment but will not receive an
individual score for the individual assessments.
Instead, the state will combine the scores from
the PBA and the EOY assessment into one overall
score. One more change for the students is that
these assessments will be on-line. Yes, our students will take each part of the PARCC using a
computer. To prepare the student for this
change, the teachers have been using computers
in their classrooms since the beginning of the
school year. This testing and scoring system is

ODH urges flu vaccination as


Ohio approaches peak flu season
COLUMBUS Influenza-like illness is now widespread throughout Ohio, and
the numbers of associated
hospitalizations are increasing
rapidly. Last week alone (week
50), there were 529 new confirmed
influenza-associated
hospitalizations in Ohio, bringing the total to 985 since flu
season began in October. Just
two weeks ago, there were 202
total confirmed flu-associated
hospitalizations. At this time
during last years flu season,
there were 216.
Ohio also has its second confirmed influenza-associated pediatric death, a 16-year-old boy
from Licking County. This is a
reminder of the danger flu poses to children.
Influenza vaccination is the
safest and most effective way
to prevent the flu, except for infants younger than 6 month old
who arent eligible to receive
it, said Dr. Mary DiOrio, medical director of the Ohio Department of Health (ODH).
The 2014-15 flu season,
which likely will continue into
next spring, may be severe according to the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
Influenza A (H3N2) is the predominant virus strain this year,
and hospitalizations and deaths
are higher when it is dominant.

Many people have probably heard about this years flu


vaccine not being as effective
because of mutations in some
influenza viruses, said Dr.
DiOrio. I cannot emphasize
strongly enough that its still
very important to get vaccinated. The vaccine provides some
protection against mutated viruses and maximum protection
against other circulating influenza strains for which the vaccine remains well matched.
While vaccination provides
the greatest protection against
the flu, other effective ways to
avoid getting or spreading it include: washing hands frequently or using alcohol-based hand
sanitizer; covering coughs and
sneezes with tissues, or coughing or sneezing into elbows;
avoiding touching eyes, nose
and mouth; and staying home
when sick and until fever-free
for 24 hours without using fever-reducing medication.
These practices are especially important with flu activity increasing and family and
friends gathering for the holidays, noted Dr. DiOrio.
Symptoms of influenza
can include fever, cough, sore
throat, body aches, headache,
chills and fatigue. Flu vaccination is available at most healthcare providers offices, local

Following the hearing Monday, I was given

amazed at not only the number of areas, but the
exceptional quality and unique potential that you
have. The 400 acre parcel on the Maumee River
is ideal for regional water-based events and environmental education programs that will draw
people and activities from near and far.
He asked the judge consider providing ample
time for local citizens to reorganize and re-energize the park district. His suggestion was a minimum of one to two years with quarterly progress
reports.
I firmly believe that great strides can be made
