Its time to
assess crop
loss damage

Feature Writer
University Extension educator Sarah Noggle is spending her time these days assessing crop damage from
recent heavy rains. While it
is difficult to estimate total
impact, Noggle said there is
no doubt that ponding and
heavy run-off rain has taken
a toll on Paulding County
We got quite a bit more
rain last week, Noggle said.
Flooding issues increased
because of ponding pressure in flooding situations.
I would say people need to
prepare to start to truly assess crop loss damage.
In corn areas, its hard to
tell the affect that its had or
whether the corn is going to
survive, continued Noggle.
In some of the earlier corn,
the crops could possibly still
be there. In the later planted
corn, there are going to be
some issues.
Noggle said that corn can
survive up to four days in
standing water, providing
that weather conditions are
cool. The risk potentially
increases in warm weather.
She has been getting reports
of issues of corn with rootworm. She noted variety can
determine the damage assessment.
As we see rootworm populate, they start to kill developing corn roots, Noggle
said. The only good thing
that comes out of rain is that
heavy rains tend to drown
out small rootworm larvae.
Whatever hybrid you use,
farmers still need to look at
those roots once larvae is

Noggle said that saturated
soil conditions will also provide the optimum conditions
for the water molds that are
common across the state.
In these cases, the whole
roots are brown, sometimes
with dark brown lesions on
the roots and the tissues can
be brown to tan, Noggle
said. Both Phytophthora
sojae pythium are contributing to this problem.
Once the soybeans are at
the V2 growth state or greater, the protection from the
seed treatment is gone and
we are relying on the soybean plants defense system
to mitigate the damage,
added Noggle.
Obviously the soybeans
have been planted later
than corn. Many fields have
standing water. If you dig up
the roots of the plants, they
may or may not be brown,
said Noggle. You can look
at the cortical cells on the
outside of the plant. You can
just take those and pull them
Noggle said that in plants
that are under water, oxygen
has been deleted and carbon dioxide is building up,
which causes the soybean
plants to suffocate.
Any wet soil doesnt get
as many nodules, Noggle
observed. As wet as things
are, we have perfect conditions for water mold.
Concerning wheat, Noggle said that two main issues
are the development of head
scabs and vomitoxin. If a
wheat field has head scab
or head blight, it is going to
reduce the yield as kernels
become infected.

A delegation from the Ukraine visited Paulding County last Thursday. The purpose for their
visit to northwest Ohio was to see first hand the operation of alternative energy facilities and to
gain knowledge and understanding in ways to develop renewable energy for the Ukraine while
focusing on economic development. Craig Stoller (far right), owner of Haviland Plastics Products,
answers questions at Quasar, located across the street from the plastics facility in Haviland.

Ukraine delegation learns

about renewable energy

Progress Staff Writer
HAVILAND A Ukraine delegation recently spent a week in northwest Ohio learning about renewable and alternative energy sources. One day was spent in Paulding
County as the delegation received a first hand
look at how renewable energy is working in
Haviland at the Haviland Plastic Products/
Quasar BioMass facility. Also visited during
last Thursdays tour was the Timber II Wind
Farm near Payne.
The energy efficiency professional program
was sponsored by the Open World Leadership Center while being organized through
the Great Lakes Consortium. The week long
learning experience allowed the group of
young Ukrainian professionals the opportunity to learn, while viewing practices here in

northwest Ohio. The group is interested to

learn about U.S. practices in improving energy efficiency and alternatives that will benefit
their country in the future.
The four-member delegation included both
men and women from different parts of the
Ukraine with each having at least conversational English language skills.
The group is excited about learning and
they are eager to see how different communities in the United States deal with energy efficiency, said project manager Dr. Elizabeth
Joining Balint were Lolita Serhiivna Demchenkova, head of the Board for the Center for
European Unity Studies; Maryna Mykolaivna

Paulding grad studying coral reef this summer

Feature Writer
Paulding High School graduate Tiffany Razo will be spending much of her time this summer sampling patches of coral
reefs around San Salvador,
with the help of multiple assistant researchers. Razo hopes to
determine the main influencing
factors of the reef communities
and determine if the reefs are
in a state of decline or have become healthier since 1998.
Coral patch reef communities worldwide are showing a
general pattern of decline and
degradation due to a number of

Razo said that San Salvador

Training set for grain bin rescues

By Sarah Noggle
OSU Extension Educator
of you have ever watched the
ABC television show, In an
Instant? The episode aired
back on Saturday night, April 4
and is one that hits close to our
community. As the Paulding
County Extension Educator for
Agriculture, Farm Safety is one
of the most important topics our
community can benefit from
being educated about.
The In an Instant show was
a re-enactment of Arick Bakers grain bin entrapment. He
is from New Providence, Iowa,
and the accident happened in
June 2013. He was totally buried under several feet of corn
for approximately three hours.
He was using a PVC pipe to try
to break up some crusty corn
inside a large bin when he was
sucked down completely to the
discharge hole of the bin. He,
his mom and his father, and rescue workers re-enacted the day
so accurately that it was almost
like the actual day of the accident.
Interspersed with the terror of
the reenactment were interludes
of a few minutes where the people involved explained exactly
how they felt that day. I cant
imagine anyone in agriculture
being able to watch the show
without becoming emotionally
involved. This program was
one of the most incredible that
I have ever watched. Aricks
mom had no trouble replicating the terror she felt that day
while waiting for the rescue
workers to find her son. She
drove her car to the bin site at
125 mph. When she tried to call
her daughter, she couldnt even

complete a sentence.
The show was especially
emotional for me because I can
remember as a child heading
out to the machine shed with
my siblings and playing in the
back of a hopper wagon full of
corn, soybean or wheat, without my parents or grandparents
knowing. Back in the 1980s,
the grain wagons werent the
size they are now, and it was
fun to pretend were digging for
a buried treasure. At that time
as young as we were my brother and I had no idea how dangerous this could be that is,
until my father found out. Once
Dad explained the dangers, we
were done playing in the hopper wagons.
As I started at the Extension
Office late in 2013, farm safety has been one of my highest
priorities. Since 1978, Purdue
University has been documenting agricultural confined space
incidents throughout the United
States. Approximately 1,500
cases have been documented
and entered into Purdues Agriculture Confined Spaces Incident Database (PACSID), with
the earliest case dating back to
1964. Today, too many times,
victims of grain entrapment are
working in much fuller bins,
and things go south so quickly
that theyre pulled beneath the
pile and suffocated literally
within seconds.
Bin entrapments often end in
utter tragedy: death of a father,
sibling, other family member,
or employee maybe someone

uled The Ohio State University
grain bin entrapment simulator,
which is also part of the Ohio
Fire Academy, for training
in June. This Friday evening,
June 26 starting at 6:30 p.m.
will be a live re-enactment by
the local fire departments for
farmers, families, community
members, grain elevator employees or anyone with interest and the best news is you
dont have to be from Paulding

The OSU Extension Office at 503 Fairground Drive,

Paulding, will be the site of the
basic reenactment and training.
This is our community and
areas chance to be trained.
The cart comes at a cost and
we have great support from
community entities such as
Paulding County Area Foundation and Paulding County
Farm Bureau. As I worked
with groups, I felt our local fire
fighters needed to be trained.

After talking with Ed Bohn,

our local EMA director, he
felt the firefighter training was
a great idea also. So Saturday
morning starting at 9 a.m., we
will have firefighter training
that any firefighter volunteer in
Paulding County can receive
for free.
These men and women are
the ones out to save lives. Many
of the local fire departments are
working with Lisa McClure
of the Paulding County Area

Foundation to receive these

grain bin rescue units. Now
we are providing the training
for them. I hope we are never
in this situation of a grain bin
entrapment in the county, but if
we are and ONE life is saved,
all the training was worth it!

Published! What that means

for the Eicher Amish home
We are already more than
halfway through June 2015.
The year is going way too
On Saturday my husband,
Joe, had to work at the RV
factory. They are very busy,
which makes it hard for him to
get caught up with work here
at home.
The rest of us helped Timothy move his belongings to
his new place on Saturday. Joe
biked over after he came home
from the factory. It was a very
hot and humid day. Some of
Timothys family were also
there to help.
On Sunday in church,
daughter Elizabeth and Timothy were published to be married. Getting published in
an Amish congregation means
publicly announcing your engagement. They chose Aug.
14, 2015, for their wedding
day. We have a lot to do to prepare for this wedding! It will
also be a very big change for
our family: the first of our precious children to move away
from home and start a new
life. Congratulations to Timothy and Elizabeth! Timothy
is a wonderful, kind man, and
we are happy to have him join
our family. He is the last of
his 10 siblings to get married,
while Elizabeth is the first of
her 8 siblings. Timothy has a
lot of nieces and nephews already.
The wedding services will
be held over at our neighbors
(Joas and Susans) place. The
reception will be here in our
new pole barn.
We still have quite a bit
of sewing to do before the
wedding. Elizabeth sewed
her wedding dress. She also
sewed Susans and Lorettas.
We still need to sew dresses
for Verena, Lovina, and me.
Then we also need to sew new
shirts for the boys and Joe. We
had hoped to have all the sewing done this spring, but with
all the sewing we had to do
for the other weddings, we are
running behind.

Program aims to improve

Lake Erie water quality
By Deb Hubbard
Paulding SWCD
PAULDING Area farmers and landowners are encouraged to participate in a
new conservation program
that will help to improve
water quality in Lake Erie by
reducing nutrient and sediment runoff.
The Tri-State Western Lake
Erie Basin Phosphorus Reduction will assist farmers in
installing best management
practices that keep nutrients on fields, improve water
quality and combat harmful
algal blooms. This program
will be supervised locally by
the Paulding Soil and Water
Conservation District. The
funding was made available
through the Regional Conservation Partnership Program
(RCPP), the newest conservation tool of the USDAs Natural Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS).
All producers in the Western Lake Erie Basin are eligible, however extra priority
will be given to eight watersheds. These watersheds
are: Bad Creek, Upper Swan
Creek and Lower Swan
Creek, Headwaters of the

Blanchard River, Cedar Creek,

Flatrock Creek, South Turkeyfoot Creek, and Rock Creek.
At least part of the following counties included in the
western Lake Erie watershed
basin program area are: Allen,

One injured in truck

crash near Grover Hill

GROVER HILL The Van Wert Post of the Ohio State

Highway Patrol investigated a one-vehicle injury crash that
occurred early last Tuesday on Ohio 637 north of Grover Hill.
Troopers said that at 2:20 a.m. June 16, a 2012 Volvo
semi-tractor trailer, operated by Gregory Burns of Marion,
was traveling southbound on Ohio 637 north of Grover Hill.
Burns semi, transporting automotive parts, traveled off the
right side of the roadway, striking a driveway access and overturning.
Burns sustained serious injuries as a result of the traffic
crash and was transported to St. Ritas Medical Center in Lima
for treatment.
The crash resulted in a temporary closure of Ohio 637,
which reopened shortly after the crash was cleaned up.
Burns was using a seat belt and alcohol was not believed
to be a factor in the crash.
The Van Wert Post was assisted by Paulding County Sheriffs Office, Grover Hill Fire and EMS, Paulding County EMA
and the Ohio Department of Transportation.

Commissioners Journal
Commissioners Journal May 20, 2015
This 20th day of May, 2015, the Board of County
Commissioners met in regular session with the following
members present: Roy Klopfenstein, Tony Zartman, Mark
Holtsberry, and Nola Ginter, Clerk.
Niki Warncke, Maumee Valley Planning Organization,
presented the FY 2015 CDBG allocation and competitive
grant information. She reported receiving 10 applications
for projects in various villages and townships. Paulding Countys total FY 2015 allocation is $75,000, with
$15,000 deducted as administrative and Fair Housing allowance.
Warncke reminded the commissioners they may award
three projects. After reviewing the applications and considering past awards, the commissioners decided on the
Warncke will contact the entities chosen to make sure
the award will be sufficient to complete their project. The
second hearing is to be on June 10 at 11 a.m. in the commissioners office.
Jared Renollet, Paulding County Dog Warden, met
with the commissioners to update them on the dog kennel
activities. He reported he has handled 106 dogs so far in
2015, which is significantly less than the same time frame
in 2014.
Renollet noted the recent fundraiser, Paws for a
Cause, was a success. He extended this thanks to everyone who worked hard to make the event happen.
Renollet expressed the need for a utility shed at the dog
kennel site to store the lawnmower and large dog crates.
He noted he is currently using a dog pen for this purpose.
The commissioners advised Renollet to investigate possible storage space in the building currently on site.
Renollet also suggested he could use a walk-on scale
and a couple of live traps (small and large). He reported
he has plenty of donated dog food. He reported moderate
activity at the dog kennel and advised the commissioners
he has a body camera he uses when appropriate. The commissioners commended Renollet in a job well done.
County Auditor Claudia Fickel presented the Sales
Tax Revenue report for May; General Fund Receipts
report and General Fund Expense report for April. The
May 2015 sales tax received was $141,707.43, which was
down slightly from May 2014; however, up from April
2015, and up from the four-year average for the month of
May. April General Fund receipts were down from March
and down from the four-year average; however, up from
April 2014.
April General Fund expenses were up from March
2015, as well as for March 2014, and the four-year average. General Fund receipts exceed General Fund expenses
by $224,651.93 through April 2015. Fickel reported conveyance fees are down.
She reminded commissioners the Homestead applications are due June 1, 2015. Consideration for the exemption is income driven ($30,500 in 2014 and $31,000
in 2015). You must also be 65 years or older, own and
occupy your home, or be permanently disabled.
Judge Tiffany Beckman, Common Pleas Court, presented two invoices for attorney fees from the recent
Noffsinger trial. She noted it was somewhat of a challenge
to retain qualified attorneys for the trial. Both attorneys
are from Lima.
She also discussed the possibility of using grant dollars

for a PSI (pre-sentence investigation) report writer. She

explained adult probation had been preparing the reports.
However, the state funds adult probation and it was decided they could no longer prepare the PSI reports. Judge
Beckman indicated Paulding, Putnam and Henry counties
now share the cost.
Beckman then discussed the county parking status. She
mentioned having an intern and asked where she should
park. The commissioners offered parking alternatives to
the county lot.
Ed Bohn, Paulding County EMA, met with the commissioners with some updates. He reported he has gotten
permission from the Chamber and the State Bank for the
county employees at the County Annex building (County
Court, County Court Probation and CSEA) to use the
basement of their building for an emergency shelter.
He noted he has submitted the EMPG application for
the 6th quarter 2014. He expects reimbursement for allowable expenses.
Bohn explained his reasoning for calling a meeting
later today at the Youth Leadership Building at the Paulding County Fairgrounds. The meeting will focus on bird
flu and what to look for. With Paulding Countys fair
being the first in the state and bird flu cases in eastern Indiana, it is a concern for 4-H members who show animals.
Bohn noted a veterinarian from the state and a representative from Coopers will attend the meeting to field any
Holtsberry went on record to thank Bohn for assisting
with serving at the Senior Day at the OSU Extension Hall
yesterday. His presence at the community functions is appreciated.
County Recorder Carol Temple met with the commissioners briefly to inform them the County Recorders Association summer continuing education will be in northwest Ohio. She will be trying to make a favor for each
recorder attending.
A motion was made by Holtsberry to go into executive
session at 8:03 a.m. with the Paulding County Prosecutor to discuss legal matters. The motion was seconded by
Zartman. All members voting yea.

Cincinnati, OH 45255

In the

Kylee Baumle
hog a year or two ago because
it seemed I couldnt keep it
happy by giving it enough
water to grow well? I finally
got rid of it. Maybe its the
gardening version of how
washing windows makes it
rain. Perhaps every time we
need a rain shower, I should
dig out a hydrangea or something.
Yep, hydrangeas love water
too. Just look at their botanical name. Hydra denotes
water and the H. macrophylla
types especially love it. In my
gardens, theyre the indicator
plants. When they start wilting, I know its time to think
about giving the gardens some
supplemental water.
There are some hydrangeas
that tolerate dry conditions
better than others though. H.
quercifolia, or oak leaf hydrangea, (Ruby Slippers and
Snow Queen) is one. H. paniculata (Limelight and Vanilla Strawberry) is another.
I can tell you from experience that yellow flag iris (Iris
pseudacorus) is happy as a
clam in soggy soil. In fact,
it was contemplating world
dominance in one part of my
garden until I showed it whats
what. I shared the love with
a few of my fellow garden-

Pet Grooming

Cats & Dogs Grooming



In case its slipped your

mind that we live in what
was once known as The Great
Black Swamp, the weather
of the last week or so should
have jogged your memory.
Weve gotten a glimpse of
what the settlers before us had
to deal with on a daily basis
before finally getting control
of the drainage issue.
In spite of tile and large
ditches, the rains weve gotten
have taken their toll on farmland, gardens, and basements
and more than a few of us
have experienced some anxiety over it. But its also one of
the things that we accept if we
decide to live in an area like
Inasmuch as gardens are
concerned, it seems as though
were now singing a different
tune than the usual how to
garden with more drought tolerant plants plants that will
thrive in our hot, dry months
of July and August without
supplemental watering.
Were now finding out
which plants are water lovers.
The weeds. Oh, the weeds!
Theyll survive anything. But
you can also clearly see that
hostas and roses are enjoying
the presence of all that moisture. And the lilies and coneflowers have never grown so
Most people have low spots
in their garden that tend to
hold onto moisture longer
than the rest of it and thats
where situating a rain garden
would make sense. If you
dont want to plant a rain garden proper, then these are the
spots to plant those things that
not only survive excess moisture, but thrive on it.
Ligularia. Remember how
I vowed to remove that water

ers who wanted a plant that

spread nicely and looked good
while doing it. Louisiana and
Siberian irises like it on the
moist end of the spectrum too.
Though I have the perfect
location for native perennial cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis) and its blue
cousin (Lobelia siphilitica),
and many of my friends have
great success with them, after
three tries they still elude me.
One season is all Ive been
able to manage with either
of them. Ive been told they
like company and do better
when planted in groups of
three or more, so if you want
to try them, keep this in mind.
Theyre both beautiful plants
and the hummingbirds simply
throng to the red one.
Other plants that enjoy
moist locations include
Astilbe, milkweed (Asclepias), lily-of-the-valley (Convallaria majalus), Rose of
Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus),
bee balm (Monarda), perennial forget-me-not (Myosotis scorpioides), spiderwort
(Tradescantia), and foam
flower (Tiarella), just to name
a few of the more commonly
found ones.
Many of the plants Ive
mentioned here like it on the
wetter side, but not all will
tolerate standing water. You
can Google them for more
specific information, contact
the county extension office,
or email me.
In the meantime, I sure
wish it would stop raining for
just a day or two.

Butter, apples, carrots, cheese

We all love old wives tales.
They are not only fun to learn,
but some of them are actually
true. They are sayings that I
have always lived by and was
disappointed to find out that
some just are not true.
My grandma was one who
believed in old wives tales,
moon signs, good luck and bad
luck. She had an antidote or a
cure for just about everything.
For instance, if we ever got
burnt, she would grab a stick of
butter and rub it on the wound.
I never questioned it and I still
do it. In my mind, the burn always feels better with butter.
We always believed that going outside in the winter with
wet hair caused us to catch a
cold. To this day, I would rather shower and wash my hair at
night and not go outside with
wet hair. I found out that this is
just not true. Wet hair doesnt
cause a cold; it is caused by
people around us spreading a
Another saying I always
thought was true was, Feed
a cold; starve a fever. Actually this saying is partially true,
because you need to feed both.
However, usually when one
has a fever, they dont feel like
eating. So what do you eat to
relieve the distress of a common cold? You guessed it. It
is chicken soup.The warm
broth in the soup loosens mucous and the salt to flavor the
broth soothes your sore throat.

Your Thoughts

more comforting than chicken
I have always been told that
if I ate a lot of carrots, I would
have the ability to see in the
dark.Wed all love to have
night-vision but it isnt going
to happen. However, carrots
are full of Vitamin A which
does aid in healthier eyes.
Of course, people will say,
Have you ever seen a rabbit
wearing glasses?
Can sucking your thumb as
a child ruin your teeth? Well,
I was a thumb sucker as a kid
and I dont seriously believe
that sucking your thumb can
ruin your choppers. It would
be things like candy and soda
which would give you cavities.

Does an apple a day keep

the doctor away? Well this
happens to bear some truth.
In a study, it was found that
if people over the age of 50
would eat an apple a day, that
8,500 heart attacks and strokes
could be prevented or delayed.
So lets eat those apples!
Have you experienced
the phenomenon of eating a
cheesy pizza for dinner and
then having a sometimes
scary, lucid dream that night?
Well, this is so common that
the old wives have been at it
again, giving it a place in folklore. But there are some scientific related studies that does
prove that some of the components of cheese can cause
There are so many old sayings and wives tales, that it
would be hard to prove if
they were true or untrue. But
I still believe that if my hand
itches, it means I am going to

itches, someone is talking
about me, if a bird flies into a
window, someone is going to
die, and if it thunders during
a funeral, it means that the deceased has entered into Heaven.
Do you believe any old wives
tales? Are you going to eat
an apple a day or have a bad
dream if you eat cheese before
bed time? Let me know and

When returning to your home following
a flood and water has entered your home or
dwelling, be aware that flood water may contain sewage and other types of disease. When
this is the case, the following precautions
should be considered.
Keep children and pets out of the affected area until cleanup has been completed.
Wear rubber boots, rubber gloves, and
goggles during cleanup of affected area.
Remove and discard items that cannot
be washed and disinfected (such as mattresses, carpeting, carpet padding, rugs, upholstered furniture, cosmetics, stuffed animals,
baby toys, pillows, foam-rubber items, books,
wall coverings, and most paper products).

Help the drying process by using fans,
air conditioning units, and dehumidifiers.
After completing the cleanup, wash
your hands with soap and warm water. Use
water that has been boiled for one minute
(allow the water to cool before washing your
hands); or you may use water that has been
disinfected for personal hygiene use (solution
of 1/8 teaspoon of household bleach per 1 gallon of water). Let it stand for 30 minutes. If the
water is cloudy, use a solution of teaspoon
of household bleach per 1 gallon of water.
Wash all clothes worn during the cleanup in hot water and detergent. These clothes
should be washed separately from uncontaminated clothes and linens.
Wash clothes contaminated with flood

Weather challenges gardeners

By Sarah Noggle
OSU Extension Educator
Paulding County
PAULDING This summer has been a
challenging one for many Ohio vegetable gardeners. It started with a prolonged cold, wet
spring, was followed by a couple of weeks of
intense heat and drought, and then followed
by torrential rains! Heavy rains or flooding
creating excessively wet soil combined with
high temperatures can create stressful and potentially deadly, conditions for bedding plants,
perennials, vegetables, shrubs and even trees.
Gardens that have been in a prolonged saturated condition may present some surprising
symptoms, ranging from wilting, yellowing
or drooping foliage to blossom-end rot. When
soil is saturated for an extended period, roots
are deprived of much-needed oxygen. When
the soil is saturated with water, pore space in
the soil that normally hold air are filled with
Since the roots of the plants get the oxygen
they need from the air in those pore spaces, the
roots of the plants can literally drown when
soils stay waterlogged for an extended period. A sick root system leads to a sick plant. A
damaged root system cannot keep up with the
moisture needs of the plant.
As the root system becomes compromised,
symptoms above the ground may appear similar to those you would expect during drought:
wilting of the foliage, blossom drop and blossom-end rot of certain fruits.
High temperatures make it even more difficult for the plant to keep up with moisture
needs, since plants are constantly losing water
as vapor through the leaves. In addition, lack
of oxygen in the soil can lead to buildup of
ethylene gas in the roots, causing even further
damage. This ethylene can cause leaves and
stems to suddenly droop, particularly near the
top of the plant.
Wet conditions also encourage fungus organisms in the soil to attack the roots or crown
of a plant and cause rot. The crown is the area
where the stem of a plant enters the soil. These
disease organisms can cause dieback or severe
damage or even kill plants. Once infection occurs, little can be done to help a plant.
If waters recede quickly, many crops will
make a comeback as soils dry and air returns.
It will take some time for new roots to grow.
In the meantime, plant damage symptoms are
likely to continue, at least for a bit. When roots
are unable to adequately take up water, the
mineral nutrients normally contained in that
water will not be available to the plant. Deficiency symptoms, such as yellowing foliage,

leaf drop and stunting, may progress until the

plant has a chance to grow new roots.
Flowering and fruiting should also be affected by damaged root systems. Blossom
drop and poor fruit set on remaining blossoms
are to be expected when plants are under severe stress. For fruits that have already set but
are still developing, blossom-end rot is likely.
A physiological disorder common especially to tomatoes, but also zucchini and other
summer squash, blossom-end rot begins as a
dead area on the blossom end of the fruit opposite the point of stem attachment. In tomatoes, a black, leathery scar appears on the bottom of the fruit, whereas in squash the damage
often remains soft, appearing water-soaked.
This scarring is caused by a deficiency
of calcium in the developing fruit, usually
brought on by extreme fluctuations in soil
moisture. However, once the damage is there,
secondary rot organisms may enter through
the damaged tissue and cause a soft rot to develop.
As conditions return to normal, surviving
plants should be able to put on new growth.
However, heavy rains will have washed away
much of the available nitrogen that plants
need. Gardeners should supplement crops
with a side dressing of fertilizer applied to the
soil around the plants and watered in.
For a quicker response, try foliar feeding
with a water-soluble product. There are many
fertilizer formulations available, including
both synthetic and organic products. Always
read and follow the label directions to avoid
plant injury.
For additional questions, the master gardener volunteer hotline is open on Tuesdays from
9 a.m. - noon. You can email questions to, walk in the OSU Extension
Office at 503 Fairground Drive, Paulding, or
call 419-399-8225 with questions.

Commissioners Journal May 27,

This 27th day of May, 2015, the
Board of County Commissioners met
in regular session with the following
members present: Roy Klopfenstein,
Tony Zartman, Mark Holtsberry, and
Nola Ginter, Clerk.
Jerry Mitten, Grunwell-Cashero
Company, met with the commissioners to discuss the finishing work that
needed to be done on the courthouse.
Last summer/fall, Grunwell-Cashero
Company did some tuck-pointing on
the exterior of the courthouse. Mitten
assured the commissioners they were
prepared to do any additional repairs
on damage done to the cement/sidewalks around the courthouse.
He also noted they were going to do
some stain work on the east and west
columns. Mitten agreed to evaluated
the damage to the trellis in the north
courthouse yard. He also said his company has been working with another
contractor on grassing the muddy areas
and taking care of the bushes they may
have damaged around the courthouse.
County Treasurer Lou Ann
Wannemacher presented the Total
Investments report for April 30,
2015. She invests $10,172,886.17 for
the county and its various entities.
Wannemacher reported we are about
$14,000 above what she estimated in
interest income for the year. Tax delinquencies are at 5%, which is very good
for a county our size.
Wannemacher noted she has made
payment plan arrangements with several residents. She uses $3,000 owed
on taxes as a threshold before turning delinquent properties over to the
county prosecutor to begin foreclosure
Kelly Goyings, Natural Design &
Graphics, met with the commissioners
at their request to discuss the commissioners website. She reviewed a couple of websites she has done for other
businesses. Goyings agreed to work on
a proposal.
Ed Bohn, Paulding County EMA,
updated the commissioners on bird flu
concerns. Cases have been reported
from eastern Indiana. There are concerns about its effect on certain 4-H
projects and Coopers Hatchery. Bohn
reported having meetings to discuss the
necessary precautions.
Bohn also noted he will have tornado signs with emergency shelter
maps posted at the Paulding County
Fair. There will also be a single-family
poly shelter on display at the fair.

Bohn reported the parts to repair the
weather sirens are in. Schweller Electric will be repairing the sirens.
Sheriff Jason Landers reviewed
Smith/Boughans proposal to alter the
HVAC system at the sheriffs office.
Landers is much appreciative of the
energy study work Scott Strahley did
at no cost to the county.
Sheriff Landers then discussed his
intentions to reinstate the DARE program. He reported DARE school is an
intense two-week class held in Columbus. He also noted there is a DARE
grant which would fund half of the
DARE officers salary and benefits.
The grant would require very detailed
documentation. Landers plans to work
closely with the school systems as far
as scheduling time for DARE should
the grant be approved.
Sheriff Landers reported his administrative assistant is in the process of
applying for a deputy grant.
Jim Guelde, Jims Handyman Services, met with the commissioners at
his request. He has opted to bow out
of his contract for maintenance of the
courthouse lawn.
Pam Miller and Jerry Zielke, Paulding County Economic Development
Miller presented the second half 2014
administrative fee request from the
Revolving Loan Fund for work completed.

The dream of the Paulding Motor Car Company, 1905

By Dennis F. Price
PAULDING A group of
young and enthusiastic men
who came to Paulding at the
turn of the century had a good
start in life because they were
living in a boom-town. Soon
the timber was gone, conditions were changing and
something had to be done.
It was about this time they
began hearing about the horseless carriage. One of the men
knew George Shugars at Auburn, Ind. who had been successful manufacturing buggies
and was changing his factory
into the manufacturing of the
Auburn Automobile.
The group from Paulding,
consisting of Charles F. Price
I, Samuel T. Price, George
Burgner, Charles Burgner, Andy Wilcox, William
Phipps, Joe Arnold, Ralph Reese and Frank Thompson, visited George Shugars automobile factory in Auburn. None
of the men knew anything
about machinery except Ralph
Reese and Frank Thompson.
It was their opinion that the
same manufacturing used in
building a car could be carried
on in Paulding. The group returned to Paulding with a lot
of enthusiasm and dreamed of

making the town a manufacturing center for automobiles.

Headlines in the Paulding
Republican newspaper on
Thursday, February 2, 1905
FOR PAULDING. A MotorCar Company and General
Machine and Repair Shop to
be Put In Here.
The article went on to say
a number of Paulding businessmen have organized and
incorporated a stock company
for the purpose of handling
and repairing automobiles,
and having a general machine
shop and repair business. The
stockholders met and elected
the following officers:
William H. Phipps - President and General Manager;
Charles W. Burgner - Vice
President and Asst. Gen. Mgr.;
John H. Laughlin - Secretary;
Charles F. Price, - Treasurer; E.N. Travis Assistant
Secretary; Samuel T. Price General Superintendent; and
D. George Burgner - General
Sales Manager.
The purpose of the company is to purchase a site and
erect a suitable building. They
will put in the necessary machinery for assembly and repairing of automobiles. They

will also conduct a regular

garage, hire automobiles out
to the public and clean and
inspect machines, the article
$10,000 in capital stock
certificates was sold to about
a dozen men who were sure
they were going to get rich
and put Paulding on the map.
In October 1905, lots were
purchased on East Jackson
Street from John Laughlin to
construct a one frame building
and garage. They had a small
office on the west side and a
garage and repair shop with
a 4x8x6-foot pit on the east
Ralph Reese knew more
about automobiles than any
of the men and recommended
they hire a body man from the
Auburn factory and a mechanic from Fort Wayne. This was
done and supplies were ordered to start in the assembly
of a car.
They worked on the project
for another six months and
were not closer to their goal
than when they started. There
were too many issues that
would not work to get movement out of the car they wanted to manufacture.
They held a directors meet-

$10,000 in capital stock certificates was sold to about a dozen men who were sure they were going to get
rich and put Paulding on the map. Unfortunately, their dream never quite got off the ground back in 1905.
ing and decided to purchase
the cars already assembled
and use the garage for storage
and repairs of automobiles.
After the repair shop was
destroyed by fire, they became
agents of Auburn Automobile
and were the first dealers to

sell cars in Paulding. Their

dreams of making Paulding
an automobile manufacturing
center were abandoned.
This information was excerpts from the History of
Paulding County by Don H.
Price, information from the

Paulding County Carnegie

Library and from the files of
Charles F. Price I.
Charles F. Price III donated an original $10,000 capital
stock certificate to the John
Paulding County Historical

Bells to ring 15 minutes

later at Wayne Trace


Progress Staff Writer
HAVILAND Changing the daily start time
beginning in August, the renewal of an existing
income tax levy and special recognition was given to both students and staff for their achievements were part of the Wayne Trace Local Board
of Education on Thursday, June 18.
Prior to the regular called meeting, a public
meeting was held for the purpose of receiving
input concerning moving the start time 15 minutes later. Although no public representation
was in attendance, superintendent Steve Arnold
reported the main reasons for the time change
were all transportation related.
The primary reason for moving class time forward 15 minutes is for the purpose of making
a smoother transition to and from Vantage and
secondly, the extra time would possibly help on
days when there is fog. With no opposition, the
Board voted to accept the new time changes.
Start time for each school for 2015-16 will be:
Wayne Trace Junior/Senior High School - start at
8:05 a.m. and will conclude at 2:55 p.m.; Payne
and Grover Hill Elementary - will start at 8:55 a.m.
and end at 3:30 p.m.
Following the public meeting and during the
regular called meeting, a resolution was approved
allowing the board to renew the current five-year
0.75 percent income tax levy. The levy will be
placed on the November ballot.
Recognition was given to teachers from each
building in the district. The teachers were honored
with the Excellence in Education Award. From
Payne Elementary, fourth grade teacher April Krouse; from Grover Hill, retired second grade teacher
Mary McVey and Sharon Spinner representing the
junior-senior high school who specializes in band
and choir were this years recipients.
The board also acted on the following:

Gardening tips
after all the rain

By Sarah Noggle
OSU Extension Educator
Paulding County
PAULDING Here are some tips for gardens affected by the recent heavy rains:
Under saturated conditions, mulch should
be pulled back from around plants or removed
from beds entirely. This will allow evaporation to help the soil dry faster.
You can help plants that were affected
by wet soils or root
rot by aerating the
soil in the root zone.
Using a garden
fork, drive the tines
straight down into the
soil about 8 inches
and pull straight out
in numerous places
around the shrubs.
Do not dig with the
fork, but make as
many holes as seems
practical. This technique provides air to the roots and encourages
the soil to dry faster. A metal rod or wooden
dowel could also be used to make the holes.
Pests such as snails and slugs, which chew
holes in leaves and flowers of many plants, thrive
and reproduce rapidly during rainy weather. Try
not to let their populations get out of control. If
you have toads in your garden, thats great because they feed on slugs. You can place a bowl
up to its rim in the ground and fill it half full of
beer to attract and drown many snails and slugs
or remove them by hand and dispose of them humanely.
Heavy rains over an extended period will
leach available nutrients from the soil in the
landscape. This is especially true of nitrogen
and potassium but not so much for phosphorous. Give your plants a chance to recover
from the saturated soils, and fertilize if needed
if they do not improve. Do not fertilize hardy trees, shrubs and lawns after August, even
after heavy rains. Late fertilization can make
them less winter hardy. Do consider fertilizing
bedding plants and vegetable gardens, if needed. Dried blood meal can add nitrogen to soil
while rock potash can supply potassium.
Do not consume any vegetables that may
have been touched by floodwater. There may be
contaminants in the water. In general, fruits and
vegetables which were immature at the time of
flooding should be safe to eat by the time they
are ready to harvest. Some fruits and vegetables
are more susceptible than others to bacterial contamination.
Leafy vegetables such as lettuce, cabbage,
mustard, kale, collards, spinach, swiss chard,
celery, and fleshy vegetables and berry fruits
such as tomatoes, summer squash, strawberries
and peppers are highly susceptible to bacterial

money and information, said
Jim States, State Bank district sales manager from the
Paulding Banking Center.
We use a combination of
safeguards to protect our customers information, and we
encourage our customers to
partner with us in that effort.
To help ensure the safety
of personal information, State
Bank suggests following
these four tips:
Create c0mplic@t3d
passwords. Avoid birthdays,
pet names and simple passwords like 12345. It is also
important to change passwords at least three times a
year. Because friendly theft
theft by someone the victim
knows is the most common
type of identity theft or fraud,
dont share your passwords
with family members and be
mindful of who has access to
your personal information.
Keep tabs on your accounts. Check account activity and online statements
often, instead of waiting for
the monthly statement. You
are the first line of defense
because you know right away
if a transaction is fraudulent.
If you notice unusual or unauthorized activity, notify
your bank right away. When a
customer reports an unauthorized transaction in a timely
manner, the bank will cover
the loss and take measures to
protect the account.
Stay alert online. Be sure
computers and mobile devices
are equipped with up-to-date

thoroughly before eating.

Produce with a protected fruit or impervious
outer skin such as peas, melons, eggplant, sweet
corn or winter squash should be washed and disinfected before the outer shell, skin or husk is
removed. Then shell, peel or husk the produce
and cook it if possible.
For additional safety, disinfect produce and
cook it before eating.
Gardeners should take extra precautions
to use good personal
hygiene when working in gardens that
may consider either
not having young
children in the garden with you or take
precautions to utilize good personal
hygienic practices.
Wash hands before
and after gardening. Leave garden
shoes at the door,
and change clothing after working in a flooded
garden. Avoid direct contact with flood waters,
including the soil, as much as possible. Young
children can be at a high risk for flood-related
contaminants if a garden plot has been flooded.
Newly planted seeds and transplants may
not survive even short-term flooding, and seeds
may have washed away. Resist the urge to replant immediately; give the soil a chance to dry
out first. Working wet soil will have long-lasting
effects of soil compaction.
Many snakes are left homeless after a flood.
They may seek food and shelter in debris caused
by the flood or yard cleanup. Watch where you
put your hands and feet when removing or cleaning debris.
Heavy rains can result in excessive breeding
of mosquitoes, resulting in the possibility of disease being carried by the insects. Remove excess
water from birdbaths, flowerpots, tires, buckets
and other containers to minimize the breeding of
Bees, wasps, and hornets may have had
their nests disturbed by excessive wind and rain.
The insects can become very aggressive. Before
beginning clean up, survey the site to see if bees,
wasps, or hornets are hovering in the area. Take
necessary precautions to avoid these insects.
In addition to the obvious damage to plants,
there are more long-term effects to soils, which
have been flooded for extended periods. Soil microorganisms that require oxygen may be killed
and those that survive without oxygen take over,
which in turn affects availability of nutrients for
plant use. The soil structure itself may be physically harmed due to compaction of soil particles.
It will be difficult to know the full effect of the
heavy rains in the area until things begin to dry
out. And then, of
course, a lot will depend on what future stresses
the weather may bring to our landscapes.
For additional questions, the Master Gardener volunteer hotline is open on Tuesdays from
9 a.m.-noon. You can email questions to, walk in the OSU Extension
Office at 503 Fairground Drive, Paulding or

Inella Finnegan dances her way to 100

PAULDING Saturday,
June 13 was a big day for Inella Finnegan as she celebrated her birthday with a party.
It wasnt just any birthday
because this lady had turned
100 years old on June 11.
Hitting the century mark is a
milestone in anyones life and
many family members and
friends helped make it a day to
be remembered.
Inella was born at 8 a.m.,
June 11, 1915, in Melrose, in

a little house just north of the

gas station. She was the oldest
of ten children born to George
and Theresa (Slattery) McCollough. She is now the sole survivor of her siblings.
Inella was always an active
little girl and said that staying busy has been her key to
longevity. Her father, George,
was a square dance caller and
at age 5 little Inella was kicking up her heels dancing to the
do-si-does as her daddy called
the lively square dances and
hoe downs.

Inella said with a twinkle in

her eye, We used to dance a
lot. Almost every weekend,
someone would host a house
party. We would all bring a
covered dish, roll back the
rugs and dance to the music of
a three-piece band. I remember there was Del Holtsberry, a
man by the last name of Heck
and Andy Nichols played the
fiddle. It was a fun time.
Inella attended the Broughton School, Melrose School
and then Oakwood. Lunches
were always packed and included usually bread and perhaps pudding. Inellas father
told his children, If you get
a lickin at school, you will
get another one when you get
home. So we stayed out of
There was a certain milk
truck driver by the name of
Floyd Finnegan. Inella met
him and they began dating.
Inella and Floyd were married
in 1933 and bought a farm just
south of Broughton. Floyd had
an old Studebaker and taught
her how to drive. They became the parents of two children, Larry and Betty Lou.
Larry passed away in 2009.
The family raised cows,
chickens, and pigs. Feeding
cows, pigs and chickens were
just a part of the daily routine
of farm living. Inella remembers of grinding up pork, putting it into sausage casings,
cooking them and layering
them in a crock.
Inella was employed various places during this time.
She sorted tomatoes at the
tomato factory, helped out at
the Melrose Store and also in
Paulding at George Cassels
Inella Finnegan recently celebrated her 100th birthday with a par- store. The couple, however,
ty at The Gardens. Several family members and friends joined always had time for music and
her during the celebration. Here, she dances a waltz at her event. dancing.

Floyd was stricken with

MS and eventually passed
away in 1962. This was before the time of visiting nurses and caregiving was left to
family members. Inella had
taken a job with the Federal
Mogul Company and paid for
their daughter to go to nursing
Inella did not just sit around.
She was involved in the Eagles and their drill team.
Finnegan said, We competed in Toledo and even beat the
Toledo Drill Team.
She was also president of
the Eagles Ladies Auxiliary.
She was a member of a dance
club in Fort Wayne and was
also featured in various plays
and events. In 1991 she won
the National AARP award for
community service.
Loving to square dance and
polka, she went to The Lumber Yard in Continental where
The Len Collier Band would
host dances. You could almost
bet on it that if there was a
dance someplace you would
find Inella there dancing. After
Floyds death, she met Harry
Utterback who became her
friend and dancing partner.
Through the years, Inella
was involved in volunteering.
She cut hair at the nursing
home and then was involved
with the Paulding County Senior Center. She remembers
when the senior center was in
the basement of the Kiwanis
Building. She was the president of the steering committee
for the center and was instrumental in moving from the
Kiwanis Building into the current building.
At the senior center she
taught exercise and also was a
part of the line dancing group.

tell that she is now 100 years
She has seen many changes
throughout the century. She
has seen the inventions of
washing machines, dishwashers, microwaves, computers,
televisions, and sweepers, and
she has also seen 15 different
presidents come into office.

She survived the Great Depression, WWII, Korea and

Len Collier provided the music and Inella proved she still
has it. She even danced a polka.

600 percent more rainfall than usual over the past couple of weeks. Volunteers manned a sandbag
