District 1 will hold two separate groundbreaking ceremonies to officially begin construction of new facilities in Paulding and Defiance counties.

A new ODOT Paulding

County garage will be built at 833 W. Wayne St. in Pauld-

ing, the same location as the former garage. A new outpost in Hicks- ville will also be constructed and will be located next to the Hicksville High School on Ohio 2/49. It will replace

the current facility located on Ohio 18 on Hicksville’s east side.

A ceremony at the site in

Paulding County will be held

at 9 a.m. on Monday, April 18.

Then at 11 a.m. the same day,

a ceremony will occur at the

Hicksville location. The pub- lic is invited to attend. Estimated cost of construc- tion is $10 million for both fa- cilities. Construction on both

facilities will begin this month and be completed late in the

year. “We invite the public to

attend these events to help us officially begin construction of two facilities which will help us better serve Paulding and Defiance counties. These modern facilities will pro-

vide the space and technology needed to both store and main- tain the modern ODOT equip- ment fleet,” said Kirk Slusher, ODOT District 1 deputy direc- tor. The Paulding garage will be a full-service facility to pro-

Fire destroys Melrose diner

By MELINDA KRICK Progress Editor MELROSE – Seven fire de- partments responded to a blaze that destroyed well-known area restaurant Uncle Fudd’s in Mel- rose on Friday afternoon. Oakwood Fire Chief Kenny Thomas said on Tuesday it ap- pears the fire started in one of the back rooms of the structure. Although no cause had yet been determined, he said it does not appear to be suspicious in origin. Thomas was set to meet a state fire marshal at the site late Tuesday morning. “There’s so much damage, it’s going to be hard to pinpoint the cause,” he noted. Oakwood firefighters were called to the restaurant, located on Ohio 637 next to the Norfolk & Southern Railroad, about 1:50 p.m. April 8. Eventually, they were joined by units and manpower from six other departments: Auglaize, Grover Hill, Paulding, Conti- nental, Cecil/Crane and Payne. Thomas estimates nearly 50 fire- fighters responded. Also on scene were a cou- ple of EMS units, the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office, county EMA and Red Cross.

ESCs form partnership; Arnold to be superintendent

The Allen County Educational Ser- vice Center (ESC) along with the West- ern Buckeye ESC, through months of

planning and collaboration, has created a partnership for sharing a superintendent between both agencies. According to a media release issued Tuesday morning by both agencies, the Allen County ESC Board of Education and the Western Buckeye ESC Board of Education are pleased to formally announce that Stephen Arnold has been hired as the shared superintendent for both neighboring ESCs.

All 10 board members representing

both ESCs interviewed Arnold and agreed that he met the desired estab- lished criteria to lead both ESCs, starting with Allen County ESC on Aug. 1 upon

the retirement of current superintendent Dr. Dean Wittwer. Wittwer has served the Allen County ESC as its superintendent the past two years. Arnold will be formally hired at the next Allen County ESC board meeting on April 25. This fall, he will lead the Allen County ESC and start building relationships with school districts and staff. Arnold will then transition into the Western Buckeye ESC superintendent’s position after Brian Gerber retires in the spring of 2017. Arnold has served the Wayne Trace Local School District as superintendent for the past five years. Previously, he served as an administrator for Antwerp

Local Schools for 14 years. He served in each administrative position, which included athletic director, elementary/ middle school principal, and jr./sr. high school principal. Criteria established Allen County ESC and Western Buckeye ESC are neighboring ESCs that mirror each other. Their philosophy re- garding the methods used to serve their client districts are parallel. Many months of research went into this process. The pros and cons were weighed and studied and in the end the advantages far out- weighed the disadvantages. At the request of the governing boards, Gerber and Wittwer developed

Wehrkamp inducted into OSU Animal Sciences Hall of Fame

COLUMBUS – Saturday The Ohio State University Depart- ment of Animal Sciences cele- brated the achievements of those who have enhanced student ed- ucation and enriched the animal sciences industry through the an- nual Evening of Excellence pro- gram at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center. This year, the department in- ducted Terry Wehrkamp, direc- tor of live production for Cooper Farms and an industry leader, into the Animal Science Hall of Fame.

by, chair of the OSU Department of Animal Sciences. “His actions and contributions in supporting the continued development of Cooper Farms and the agricul- tural industry in general make him a role model and a leader for many of us to follow.” Wehrkamp grew up in Smith- ville and went on to graduate from OSU in 1982. In 1985, he joined the team at Cooper Farms, after working for Foster Farms in California. Wehrkamp has been a leader

for Foster Farms in California. Wehrkamp has been a leader Terry Wehrkamp, director of live production

Terry Wehrkamp, director of live production at Cooper Farms, was honored by the Department of Animal Sciences at OSU for achievements in his career and as a community leader.

Recipients of the Animal Sci- ence Hall of Fame recognition are not only honored for their individual success but also their commitment to their family, lo- cal community, and the broader realm of the animal industries. Wehrkamp earned his induction into the Hall of Fame through his continued leadership in the agri- cultural community and support of the next generation of animal scientists. “Terry is very deserving of this honor,” said Dr. Henry Zer-

in the industry and at Cooper Farms as the director of live pro- duction for the company’s tur- keys, hogs and chickens, where he manages the teams caring for all three species and the feed production. In his time at Cooper Farms, the company has seen tremen- dous growth in all areas, has evolved into one of the largest vertically integrated turkey, swine and egg producing com- panies in the U.S. “Through his over 30 years

at Cooper Farms, Terry has ex- celled in his career in every po- sition and through each promo- tion,” said Gary Cooper, COO of Cooper Farms. “It is very to good to know that his exempla- ry and passionate service toward the poultry industry has not gone unnoticed. Terry is very deserv- ing of this honorable award.” While his career at Cooper Farms has been impressive, what sets Wehrkamp apart from other successful individuals is his willingness to give freely of his time to outside organizations at the state, regional and com- munity levels. Wehrkamp has a consistent history of support for 4-H and FFA youth activities. In addition, he is a strong sup- porter of the OSU Department of Animal Sciences and has given numerous invited lectures and facilitated many departmental student internships at Cooper Farms. Wehrkamp was awarded the OSU College of Food and Agri- cultural Education Distinguished Alumni Award in 2010. “We especially appreciate Terry willingly and generously supporting the programs in the Department of Animal Sciences; he has impacted several students over the years as he has visited with them during invited lec- tures, tours, internships, and oth- er events,” Zerby commented. “We congratulate Terry on his induction to the Animal Sciences Hall of Fame and look forward to continued interactions with him in the future.” Wehrkamp’s community in- volvement is a testament of his leadership and desire to be an active member of the commu- nity. Wehrkamp has served on the board of directors for the Paulding County Carnegie Li- brary, Paulding County Farm Bureau, The Ohio State Univer- sity Alumni Club of Van Wert and Paulding Counties and the Ohio Poultry Association. He is an active member and supporter of the Midwest Poultry Consor- tium and is also active in several ministries at Divine Mercy Cath- olic Church, Paulding. A portrait of Wehrkamp will be hung in the Department Hall of Fame in the Animal Sciences Building, 20229 Fyffe Road, on the OSU campus.

What remains of Uncle Fudd’s Restaurant (above) after a fire destroyed it last Friday stands forlornly boarded up tucked between the railway and Ohio 613 in Melrose. A favorite with locals and the surrounding area as well, many customers are hoping the establishment will be rebuilt in time. It is suspected the fire kindled in a room behind the kitchen.

Commissioners: Courthouse security to be more stringent

By DENISE GEBERS Progress Staff Writer PAULDING – Sometime soon there will be chang- es coming to the Paulding County Courthouse. These are expected to increase safe- ty for those who use the facil- ity and those who work there. According to county Commissioner Tony Zart- man in a phone conversation Monday, the board has talk- ed about beefing up secu- rity for years and it is their consensus that the time has come to move. “With the times we’re living in and the things that have been going on, we feel it’s necessary to look at measures to eliminate possi-

ble future altercations,” he said. “It will help reduce lia- bility in the event something would ever happen.” What exactly these mea- sures will be are yet to be determined. “Other courthouses around our county have implement- ed various measures: closing all but one entrance during business hours, using metal detectors and having a dep- uty in the building who may conduct bag and briefcase searches are among them,” noted Zartman. Six doors are current- ly open to the courthouse during office hours. While the process is still in the investigative stage,

many options are being con- sidered. Details of the pos- sibilities were not released. Zartman indicated an opera- tional plan will be set within a month. “The commissioners’ of- fice wants to be proactive,” he said. “We want to have a plan in place to prevent any situation. Our goal is to do this sooner than later. We feel the need to move for- ward rapidly on this.” Working with Commis- sioners Zartman, Roy Klop- fenstein and Mark Holtsber- ry on this plan are Sheriff Jason Landers, Prosecuting Attorney Joe Burkard, and Common Pleas Court Judge Tiffany Beckman.

Heavy smoke (at right) was a serious problem in Melrose during the fire at Uncle Fudd’s Restau- rant on April 8. Sheriff’s deputies helped with traffic control as the smoke was so dense visibility was practically nil along the curve on Ohio 613 east of the restaurant in Melrose. Water had to be brought in from the Auglaize River once Oakwood’s water tower was drained.

vide more truck storage, an upgraded above-ground fuel system as well as a decanting station which will be installed to meet Environmental Pro- tection Agency guidelines for disposal of catch basin waste. Within the plans is also an expanded mechanic’s area that will allow the mechanics the space needed to work on large equipment. A new two- truck wash bay will also be added. A salt dome, pole barn and equipment storage build- ing will also be constructed.

The former facility was de- molished and the site readied over the winter. A building on West Wall Street in Paulding is being used as temporary

quarters until the new building

is completed.

The new outpost in Hicks- ville will feature five truck bays, a 2,000-ton salt storage

facility, a truck wash bay and

a decanting station. The fa-

cility will primarily serve the winter operations for both the ODOT Defiance and Paulding County maintenance crews.

What would the Wright Brothers say today?
By Byron McNutt
DHI Media
If time is relative, then so is
our knowledge. In the late 1400s,
Christopher Columbus couldn’t
have foreseen that five centu-
ries later 40,000 ships would go
around the world every year.
Are we any smarter today?
Who today can foretell how
many rockets two centuries
from now will zoom to so far
undiscovered planets? Nothing
so well exemplifies “infinity” as
human ignorance.
Today’s technology has
made almost anything possible,
whether it be with computers,
medical research or space travel.
Let’s consider air travel.
Just 120 years ago most peo-
ple thought it was impossible
to fly in anything resembling
what we now call an airplane.
Anyone trying to fly was either
crazy or they had a death wish.
In the 1780s man found a way to
around the Sun. It will take until
2178 for that to occur.
There are more stars in space
than there are grains of sand on
every beach on Earth.
Closer to home, there is
enough water in Lake Superior
to cover all of North and South
America in one foot of water.
There are more atoms in a
glass of water than glasses of
water in all the oceans on Earth.
Keep in mind, Earth’s surface
is 75 percent water, and those
oceans are very deep.
Some people will believe
these facts but will not believe
the sign saying “Don’t Touch,
The Paint Is Wet.”

This year, the mint will pro-

What seemed impossible
to those visionary adventurers
115 years ago is now taken for
granted. Today brave souls soar
in ultralights, hang-gliders and
even defy death by flying while
wearing web-winged bodysuits.
What do we consider impossi-
ble today? I’m sure there are en-
gineers, scientists and dreamers
working to prove the impossi-
ble possible. As they overcome
the hurdles, they celebrate the
achievements and set new
goals.
Who is to say what impos-
sible challenges will become
reality in the near future? Who
knows, the next brilliant inven-

the inspiration they need in our
local elementary schools.

percent of the human body is
structured almost identically in
both the male and the female.
In humans, each cell normal-

somes, a total of 46. Twenty-two
of those pairs look the same in
both males and females. The
23rd pair are the sex chromo-
somes.
Consider these facts. There
are only seven colors in a rain-

is incredible.
There are only seven notes in

those seven notes to make beau-

There are only 10 basic num-

There are just 26 letters in our

DAR charter member passes

Dear Editor, The funeral services of Miss Carolyn J. Baird were held Friday, April 1, at Den Herder Funeral Home in Paulding. She was the daugh- ter of Keith Sr. and Isabelle Baird, formerly of Paulding. Carolyn was born Oct. 17, l941 in Galion. She died March 28 in Van Wert. Her brother, Keith Jr. of Perrys- burg, survives. Officiating was Rev. Todd Stoller, at Den Herder Funer- al Home. Close friends and family were in attendance. Interment was at Caledonia Cemetery, in Caledonia. Miss Baird was remem- bered as a kind and consider- ate school teacher and friend. She also was remembered as a charter member of the

General Horatio N. Curtis Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution. She served as the first treasurer and her name was shown as such on the chapter charter as it was proudly displayed on an easel at her funeral service. Her mother, Isabelle, had also proudly served this organization as the first chap- ter chaplain. This chapter was organized in October 1975. The charter for the chap- ter will remain in Paulding County. A copy has been made to forward to the Ohio Society. Any charter mem- ber or member’s family who wishes to display it on an easel at a program or memo- rial service may contact or- ganizing/past-regent Caroline Zimmerman at 419-258-2222 or Den Herder Funeral Home, Paulding.

Thank you to firefighters

Dear Editor, I want to say thank you to the many firefighters and all those who assisted in putting out the fire at Uncle Fudd’s on Friday. They were there fight- ing the fire for four hours at least. Uncle Fudd’s was our most beloved family-owned restaurant. People came from Defiance and all over just to eat there. We hope they re- build.

Martin deemed sane by Court evaluator

PAULDING – A Payne man made his eighth pretrial confer- ence appearance this week for four felony charges stemming from a death last August. On Monday morning, Andrew J. Martin, 26, learned an evaluation he underwent last month with the Court Diagnostic Treatment Center indicated he is competent to stand trial for involuntary manslaughter (F1), two counts corrupting another with drugs (F2) and illegal manufacture of drugs (F3). It also said he was sane at the time of the offense. His charges stem from incidents surrounding the Aug. 15 death of Cary L. Parsons in his home in Payne. Martin had entered pleas of not guilty and not guilty by rea- son of insanity at a hearing in February. Paulding County Common Pleas Court Judge Tiffany Beck- man set his next court date, for further pretrial conference, for May 5.

criteria for the shared superintendent’s posi- tion. They desired a highly qualified candidate who had experience as a superintendent and understands, or is willing to learn the business

world of an ESC. Previous school district super- intendent experience was desired/preferred and the ideal candidate would agree to longevity/ commitment for stability of both organizations. A small list of candidates were identified, invited to have conversations to seek interest, and then interviewed. They desired to find the right candidate who had the experience, ex- cellent people skills, strength in instructional practices, diplomacy, networking, communi- cation, and legislative protocol and connec- tions. They strongly believe Arnold posseses the necessary criteria for a successful superinten- dency. Equal service to districts This collaboration is not a merger, it is a partnership. It will allow both ESCs to in- crease their capacity in many ways.

1. It will create a stronger network of collab-

oration with school psychologists; special ed-

ucation directors; curriculum directors; gifted education coordination; physical, occupational and speech therapists.

2. Create a stronger grant writing network as

both ESCs align to team with each other that

will allow a broader network to secure poten- tial and future grants.

3. Local superintendent and principal net-

working regarding programs, staffing, fiscal resources, evaluations and negotiations.

4. Bus driver in-service and training.

5. The cost efficiency of sharing the salary and benefits of the superintendent.

6. All schools in Allen County and Western Buckeye ESC, which include Paulding and Van Wert counties, will be served equally. No district will be shorted time or resources. Moving forward Arnold added the following statement when asked about this unique administrative oppor- tunity, “I would like to thank the Allen County ESC and the Western Buckeye ESC Boards of Education for the opportunity to lead both organizations as their superintendent. I am honored to have been chosen for this position and look forward to this exciting and unique opportunity. “I know I have big shoes to fill with the re- tirements of Dr. Dean Wittwer and Mr. Brian Gerber. I hope to continue the many outstand- ing programs that these men and their staffs have in place with the goal of moving both ESC’s forward in a very positive light. “Having lived in northwest Ohio my entire adult life, I have witnessed first-hand the great civic pride in the school districts of Allen, Paulding and Van Wert counties. I am very ex- cited to have this opportunity and look forward to becoming a part of each school’s tradition. “One of my first goals will be to further de- velop my professional relationship with the superintendents of all our partner schools. I know many of them well already, but I look forward to getting to know all of them in order to start the collaboration process. My main priority is to make the transition to a shared superintendent as smooth as possible for each school district in all three counties.” Both Wittwer and Gerber look forward to this new partnership and new style of leader- ship as the ESC continues to move forward in the 21st century of education.

Columnist reveals what Lovina’s been cooking in the kitchen

Editor’s Note: Lovina Eich- er is taking vacation while her children are on spring break. Guest columnist is Melodie Da- vis, one of the editors at Men- noMedia/Herald Press which syndicates Lovina’s column. I walked into Lovina’s kitchen on a beautiful October morn- ing last fall to a hive of women cooking up a storm. A breakfast casserole was in the oven and some cookies were already cool-

ing - and the coffee was on. Two huge bushels of apples sat over

at the edge of the kitchen.

Lovina, plus her daughters Verena and Loretta, were busy mixing and stirring. A man by the name of Lucas Landis was taking pictures as the Eichers worked – all without actually photographing faces or even backs. Most of us understand that Amish generally do not pose for any photographs as part of their faith and custom, aiming for simplicity in life and spirit (avoiding pride and boasting). What was the kitchen hum about that morning? If you ha- ven’t guessed it yet, Lovina is producing an Amish-themed cookbook, the first one of her own in about four years. We at

Herald Press are thrilled! It will be all her own recipes (aside from some, of course, sent by readers or obtained from friends and relatives – Lovina has more cousins than we can count) but each recipe will be tested and adapted by Lovina and her “En- glish” friend Ruth Boss, plus a clutch of volunteer cooks from Ruth’s church. I was pleased to also meet Ruth that morning, who arrived

a bit later and had stopped at a

nearby Amish bakery to buy sweet rolls, long johns and oth- er delicacies for the work day. Ruth quipped, “They’ll have to

for the work day. Ruth quipped, “They’ll have to carry us out of here,” because she

carry us out of here,” because she knew just how plentiful and delicious the food would be that day. You may recall Ruth writ-

ing a guest column for Lovina late last summer on daughter Elizabeth’s wedding so Lovina could catch her breath. Some of the dishes Lovina and daughters made that day in- cluded Shoo Fly pie, apple pie, apple danish, carrot cake, M&M cookies, potato pancakes, vege- table soup and more. She had scheduled three such “cooking days” last fall – in addition to everything else that Lovina does in a normal busy week. Let me add that I was utterly amazed at how well and how much Lovina’s teenage daugh- ters helped – they were in the kitchen all day cooking various recipes – all under Lovina’s watchful instruction. When they weren’t cooking, they were constantly washing dish- es. Which is where Ruth and I jumped in – rinsing and drying the dishes, pans, and utensils! I put my hands in that steamy hot water and it felt like home – the wonderful hot water I love for cleaning dishes. The name of Lovina’s new cookbook is The Essential Amish Kitchen: Everyday Rec-

ipes from Farm and Pantry. A cookbook takes extra-long to “cook up” so it comes out in April 2017. We hope you’ll want one to use whenever you

want a taste of good home cooking from farm and pantry! The book will be sold online and at bookstores everywhere. Lovina’s column, along with her blog and Facebook page, will keep you posted on when it’s available for preorder. Writing her weekly column and producing a cookbook like this is Lovina’s way of earn- ing extra money for her fam- ily - which she can do right in her own home like many other Amish women in their cottage industries. And so many men, too, have businesses on the side or full time, now that it is so difficult to support a family on farm income. Family farms are small these days and land is hard to come by. We appreciate readers – and newspapers – being part of this extended family and communi- ty. We know readers enjoy sitting down once a week to enter into a little of Lovina’s family life, and learn from the strong faith she shares with us all. One man, who reads Lovina’s column on-

line, said, “I [find] myself greatly blessed and refreshed.” I’ll share one of my own fa- vorite recipes, adapted from an- other classic Mennonite cook- book, More-with-Less Cook- book, for oatmeal bread. OATMEAL BREAD

1 cup quick oats 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon salt

2 tablespoons butter or mar-

garine Combine above ingredients in a large bowl. Pour 2 cups boiling water over mixture, stirring to combine. Separately dissolve:

2 packages dry yeast in

1/2 cup warm water When batter is cooled to luke- warm, add the yeast mixture. Stir in 5-1/2 cups white flour (you’ll probably add another 1/2 cup in kneading). When dough is stiff, turn onto a floured board and knead 5-10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, cover, and let rise until doubled. Punch down and let rise again. Shape into 2 loaves and place in greased 9x5x3-inch pans. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes. Cool on rack. Brush loaves with butter or margarine for a soft crust.

Little fry

I will have to say that french fries are probably one of my favorite foods. It was always a treat when I was in high school to go to a local hangout and or- der hot crispy fries with a cherry Coke. Today the humble french fry is eaten all over the world and is served in many different ways. Of course, the most common way to eat those delectable fries is to salt them and dip them in ketchup. But we all know there is nothing better than fair fries served with vinegar and served in a cone shaped cup. Personal- ly, I like an order of fries with cottage cheese on top. I know everyone looks at me when I order them, but they are really good. I have seen others dip fries in cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, and there are restaurants in Chi- na who serve fries in a hot hon- ey sauce. But, I have never met a fry I didn’t like. The french fry has gotten a bad rap on school menus and other facilities, because people say they are greasy and not good for your health. However, at my age, I eat them and say, “Yum. I’ll worry about the fat later.” The story of how the lowly potato made its way from South America into those fast food sacks is a lengthy tale involving many historical figures. The Incas first discovered po- tatoes growing wild in the high- lands, and were cultivating them as early as 750 BC. As well as being their staple source of food, the Incas also used potatoes for telling time, treating illness and injury, and divination. (I even remember my kids hav- ing a “potato gun.”) The Incas worshipped potato deities, and when potato crops failed, the noses and lips of a few unlucky Incas would be mutilated in cer- emonies designed to appease

Instead, their most popular pota-

gan to grow them. Americans began to develop a taste for the potato and others still thought it was poisonous. Not long afterwards, some- one in France dropped slices of potatoes into a hot pot of boil- ing grease, therefore making french fries. By the late 1830s, deep fried taters were popular in France and Belgium. It took an- other hundred years for them to become a fast-food staple in the United States. French fries were born to be fast food. Deep frying foods in large vats of (expensive) fat is a smelly and messy task that was impossible for most peo- ple to carry out in their humble kitchens. Given the difficulty of preparing the perfect fry, it

millions of them each day. Today, french fries account for more than one-fourth of all potatoes sold in the U.S. mar- ket – over six million pounds of potatoes are processed into frozen fries annually. Twen-

greens to the Queen and threw away the potatoes. She was not pleased, and rejected the disgusting meal. In fact in his History of the Private Lives of the French, the author said that potatoes had a “pasty taste, plus it was flatulent and indigestible which had caused it to be reject- ed from refined homes.” The potato finally made it into Germany, France, Belgium and of course Ireland. Follow- ing a famine in Ireland, where many died, a lot of the Irish came to America and brought their spuds with them and grew them here. Then an adventurous farmer, Thomas Jefferson, be-

of the greasy things in a year. The potato has come from be- ing reviled to being revered, and is now the second most popular staple food in the world. So the next time someone says “You want fries with that?” – take a moment to re- member the long, hard jour- ney of the poor little spud. And answer, “Yes, thank you.” Do you like french fries? Do you think that any thing this good would be bad for us? Do you want fries with that? Let me know and I’ll give you a Penny for Your Thoughts.

PCH purchasing leading edge testing equipment

PAULDING – The Pauld- ing County Hospital Board of Trustees approved the purchase of leading edge equipment that tests for septicemia and infec- tious organisms. The test platforms can iden- tify organisms in blood, gas- trointestinal system, respira- tory system, and spinal fluid. The new equipment improves accuracy and cuts diagnostic time from days to as little as an hour. Currently, specimens must be grown in a culture media for days before an organism can be identified or sent to a reference lab for identification. Some testing is done that employs a

reaction to an organism. The new equipment is manufactured by BioFire Di- agnostics of Salt Lake City, called the FilmArray; and by Biomerieux of Durham, N.C., called the BacT Alert 3D. When employed together, this equipment will help identify infectious organisms faster using a technique called mo- lecular testing, which iden- tifies actual DNA associated

with viruses and bacteria. This results in a highly ac- curate diagnosis, and because results are obtained quickly, life saving treatment can begin days sooner than current tech- nology allows. The results pin- point the species of the organ- ism so that treatment can be fo- cused on the specific organism. This equipment compares with that found at major medi- cal centers.

Lehman retires

By JIM LANGHAM Feature Writer HAVILAND – A well-re- spected Paulding County woman was honored April 5 for her many years of service to the county and retirement from employment at Van Wert County Hospital. Former Haviland Mayor The-

resa Lehman was recognized by

a large crowd at a reception at

the Haviland Town Hall. Leh- man had served for 18 years as the town’s mayor. She also served on the Paulding County Board of the United Way for more than 10 years. For many years, she was on the advisory board of the Van Wert County

Hospital, where she retired last week after 34 years of employ- ment in the laundry department. Other areas of volunteer service in the county includ- ed the Fritz House, where she was a very active supporter, advocate and volunteer. “I knew that the patients up- stairs would have good clean linens and wouldn’t have to worry about a staph infection,” said Lehman of her work at the hospital. “I saw a lot of mira- cles at the hospital. I saw ba- bies born and I saw people get better that doctors weren’t sure about to start with. Those were all miracles to me. “I could tell if somebody came out of the ICU and lost

a loved one,” continued Leh-

man. “When they would cry,

a loved one,” continued Leh- man. “When they would cry, Jim Langham/ Paulding County Progress Theresa

Jim Langham/Paulding County Progress

Theresa Lehman of Haviland was honored with a retirement reception last week.

I would put my arms around them and cry. If somebody was alone, I often would stop and just listen to them talk.” Lehman took a lot of pride during her time as Haviland’s mayor in cleaning up areas of the community such as the old school and places where things

had run down. “I loved my people and I did

all that I could to try to see to it that they had a nice town to live in,” said Lehman. “I want- ed them to feel pride in our community. I love the people of this town. “I’m not retiring from help- ing the people of Paulding County,” said Lehman. “I plan to keep doing all I can to help make people’s lives better.”

Commissioners’ Journal March 28, 2016 This 28th day of March, 2016, the Board of County Com- missioners met in regular session with the following members present: Tony Zartman, Roy Klopfenstein, Mark Holtsberry, and Nola Ginter, Clerk. MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS Brian Shuherk, Solid Ground LLC, presented final plans for phase two of the courthouse landscaping and lawn project. Materials to be used for the lattice work on the gazebo were discussed, as were the plans to raise the veterans’ memorial several inches. Solid Ground’s crew worked on the north side of the court- house last Friday afternoon, removing the row of cedar trees. They plan to grass the area up to the sidewalk. Shuherk submitted a contract and an invoice for half of the total amount for the project. The contract will be routed to the Prosecutor for approval as to form. Once the contract is ap- proved, the invoice will be processed for payment. County Treasurer Lou Ann Wannemacher and the commis- sioners discussed EFT (Electronic Fund Transfers) which are a part of the cyber security policy. She presented a form she drafted for EFT procedure and approval. The commissioners suggested she have the Prosecutor review the form. Wannemacher then shared a brochure she titled “Money Talks.” She designed the brochure, which includes many in- teresting facts about currency. Wannemacher noted she would like to make the brochures available for school field trip par- ticipants. The commissioners noted her brochure is very well done and outlines noteworthy details about our legal tender.

MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS County Court Judge Suzanne Rister updated the commis- sioners on the sentencing of the previous probation officer. Rister indicated that the present part-time employee is doing a great job filling in for that position and they are hopeful to be able to add additional staff. Rister also noted that they are gearing up for the new grant year from DORC. The commissioners were in agreement with Rister that the fraud training held at the county annex building last week was a success. Judge Rister also briefly discussed their evacuation plan and security measures taken at County Court. She was also impressed with how well the e-ticket process was working in their office. Ed Bohn, EMA director, Claudia Fickel, Ann Pease, Carol Temple, Lou Wannemacher, Judge DeMuth, Lynn Vance, Katie Sunday met with the commissioners to review and discuss the evacuation plan for courthouse employees. Bohn presented a draft plan and locations to meet in the event of a disaster. He is also currently working on a mem-

orandum of understanding with a local entity if employees need to be evacuated. Once the draft is approved and put into place, Bohn will set up evacuation drills on a quarterly basis. The next meeting will take place on April 6 in the commissioners’ chambers for finalization of the plan. Jerry Zielke, Paulding County Economic Development director, met with the commissioners to discuss the proposal from Tetra Tech to conduct a Phase I environmental site as- sessment and engineering services for the former truck stop along 18176 US 127 in Cecil. Zielke is looking at economic development funding the project to make the property more marketable to be reimbursed by grant dollars. EXECUTIVE SESSION

Vantage board covers brief agenda

By ERIN COX DHI Media Editor VAN WERT – The Vantage Board of Education worked through a short agenda quickly on Thursday evening prior to hosting its All Boards dinner. Superintendent Staci Kaufman discussed the re-authoriza- tion of the No Child Left Behind Act, which is now known as the Every Student Succeeds Act, and what it means for career technical schools such as Vantage Career Center. “Most of the time when new legislation is enacted, the after- thought is how does that apply to career technical education,” Kaufman said. “We’re encouraging staff to get some questions out there and the department of education seems sincere in get- ting local input.” Kaufman also reported two representatives from the Gov- ernor’s office will be touring Vantage Career Center in May . They will meet with some manufacturing employers in the area to hear how they see gaps being filled in their sector of the workforce and to attest to their relationship with Vantage. During the treasurer’s report, treasurer Laura Peters reported the recently having a good audit. The board approved the employment of the following: Rhon- da Davis as preschool head teacher, Larry Davis in auto tech, David DeLano in building and grounds maintenance, Saman- tha Heckler as an intervention specialist, Leigh Carey in junior health technology, Lynda Ragan for Van Wert Satellite FCS, Larry Ray in precision machining, Larry Regedanz in network systems, Robert Spath for Van Wert Satellite PLTW, Michael Villena in auto body, Brent Wright in welding, Jill DeWert in interactive media, Ashley Cline as an intervention specialist coordinator, Angie Shellabarger as an intervention specialist coordinator, Sherryl Proctor in math and Wendy Baumle for senior health technology. Marcia Osenga, Kari Casto and Mike Miller were given sup- plemental contracts as LPDC committee members and Susan Monroe was approved as an adult education instructor on an as-needed basis.

WT plays Saturday at Fifth Third, April 20 at Parkview Field

By KEVIN WANNEMACHER Sportswriter HAVILAND – Wayne Trace’s var- sity baseball squad will get two very special opportunities in the week ahead as the Raiders are scheduled to play at both Fifth Third Field in Tole- do and Parkview Field in Fort Wayne over the next seven days. On Saturday, April 16, the Raiders make the trip to Fifth Third Field to take on Ottoville. Fifth Third Field is home to the Toledo Mud Hens, AAA affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. “We have the opportunity to play at two very special ball parks,” com- mented Raider head coach Ryne Je- rome. “Both of them will give our guys an opportunity to play on a high quality field and be a lot of fun to be a part of the whole experience.”

Ottoville entered play this week with a record of 2-4, coming off of an 11-1 loss to Miller City last week. The Big Green posted a 7-2 victo- ry over Columbus Grove in Putnam County League action. Ottoville’s other victory is an 8-4 win over Fort Jennings in non-league action. Ottoville opened its season on March 26 with an 11-0 loss to Park- way, a game that was much closer than the final score shows. The contest was scoreless through four innings before the visiting Pan- thers picked up four runs in the fifth and added a single run in the sixth. Parkway then broke the game open with a six-run seventh. In other games, the Big Green fell at Crestview 19-9 and dropped an 11-5 decision to Ottawa Glandorf.

Ottoville’s roster features 11 play- ers, highlighted by six sophomores to go along with two seniors, two juniors and a freshman. The Raiders then follow that up with a game at Parkview Field on Wednes- day, April 20, as Wayne Trace battles Wayne High School of Fort Wayne. Parkview Field is the home location for the Fort Wayne Tin Caps, Single A squad for the San Diego Padres. “Each location will bring a unique atmosphere and gives our guys some great memories and great experi- ence,” Jerome continued. “We want the guys to enjoy the moment.” Wayne entered action this week winless in three games as the Gener- als have struggled so far this season. In its season opener, Wayne Trace dropped a 12-0 decision to Man-

chester on March 30. Wayne then traveled to Colum- bus, Ind. on April 2 for a double- header with East High School. The opener of the day saw the host Olympians roll to a 16-0 victo- ry over the Generals and Columbus East followed that up with a 20-1 win in game two. After a light schedule in the ear- ly part of the season, Wayne start- ed a stretch of seven games in ten days (weather permitting) this past Monday, including six games in the Summit Athletic Conference. Wayne’s roster consists of 14 players, five of which are seniors along with two juniors, four sopho- mores and three freshmen. The Generals have struggled at the plate through three games, striking out

29 times as a team while recording a team on-base percentage of .196. Senior Jon Krouse, who attend- ed Wayne Trace in his elementary years, has a double and freshman Leontae Warren adds a single for the lone two hits for the General offense on the season, with Krouse also driving in senior Jacob Fisher for Wayne’s only run. Warren and freshman Torren Gonzalez each have a stolen base on the year as well. On the mound, eight difference pitchers have made appearances this year with no pitcher having tossed more than 2-1/3 innings. As a staff, the Generals have struck out 13 hitters in 13 innings of work while allowing 26 hits and 22 walks.

SHAWNEE 2, PAULDING 1 In its season opener, Paulding dropped a 2-1 decision to Lima Shawnee last week. The Indians scored first, plating one in the top of the fourth, before the Panthers evened the game with their only run in the bottom of the fourth. However, Lima Shawnee scored the deci- sive run by adding one in the top of the sixth. Damon Egnor was the tough-luck loser for the Panthers, giving up two hits while fanning 14 in a complete game effort. Corbin Edwards and Jarrett Sitton each had doubles for Paulding with Cameron Doster adding a single. James Mourey had the lone Paulding run batted in. DEFIANCE 7, PAULDING 1 Defiance handed the Panthers a 7-1 non- league loss last week on a cold and wet after- noon. The Bulldogs scored twice in the first and third innings before adding a single run in the fourth and two more in the seventh. Paulding plated its lone run in the bottom of the first. Johanns took the loss for the maroon-and- white, giving up nine hits, seven runs and four walks while fanning five in seven innings of work. Edwards, Sitton and Martinez all had sin- gles for the Panther offense, with Edwards scoring the only Paulding run and Sitton pick- ing up the run batted in. Johanns also had a stolen base. WT 5, CONTINENTAL 4 Wayne Trace opened its season with a 5-4 win over Continental as the Raiders got a Noah Stoller single in the bottom of the sev- enth to score Luke Miller with the winning run.

Ohio-Indiana All-Star game April 17

By JOE SHOUSE Sportswriter ANTWERP – This year’s Parkview Sports Medicine All- Star Classic will again be played at Antwerp High School. The classic is entering its third year and serves as a fundraiser for Antwerp athletics. The event will be held on Sunday, April 17 and will fea- ture senior players from the area who will battle their Indiana counterparts. The boys show- down will tip-off at 3 p.m. The Ohio boys will be coached by Shawn Brewer, who recently resigned from his coaching duties at Pauld- ing. The former coach col- lected three sectional titles and two district runner-up finishes. Overall, Brewer finished his Paulding coaching tenure with a 93-68 record in seven years on the sidelines. Brewer will welcome five players from Paulding County including one very familiar player in Alex Arellano, who played for Paulding while av- eraging 18 points a contest. Joining Arellano will be Ant- werp’s Sam Williamson, who scored at a 19-point clip per contest, and center Josh Lon- gardner. The other two local representatives come from Wayne Trace: Luke Miller and Alec Vest. Miller was one of the Raiders top shooters from long range hitting 39 percent of his 3-pointers. Also playing for the Ohio stars will be three members from the 27-2 state runner-up Lincolnview Lancers. Hayden Ludwig, Trevor Neate and Chandler Adams will have the opportunity to shine on the court one more time prior to

graduation. Ranked number one throughout the regular season Neate scored 12 points in their semi final win over Jackson and then followed it up with 16 markers in the champi- onship game. Adams had a 14-point effort in the Lanc- ers semi final game and then hauled in 10 rebounds in the championship clash. Ludwig drained nine points in the title match up to close out his high school career. The lone Crestview player playing in the classic is a good one in Conner Lautzenheiser. The Knight averaged 23 points per games and will play his college basketball at St. Fran- cis in Fort Wayne. The NAIA school finished its season at national runner-ups with a 33-5 record. The contingent from Indiana will be led by Heritage coach Barry Singrey who in his first year at Heritage finished with a record of 7-16.

Players from Bellmont, Woodlan, Heritage Leo and Adams Central will complete the roster for Indiana. On the girls side of the led- ger, Scott McMichael will be on the sidelines to coach the Ohio girls. McMichael, a popular coach in the area has coached both boys and girls and recently guided the Antwerp Lady Archers to an 11-13 season. The Ohio squad will feature three Lady Archers, two Lady Raiders and one from Pauld- ing. Playing on their home floor will be Avery Braaten, Audrie Longardner and Kiana Recker. Paulding senior Sa- mantha Meggison will repre- sent the maroon-and-white. From Wayne Trace, Courtney Mead and Erin Mohr will rep- resent the red-white-and-blue. Mohr, who will attend Hunting- ton University, led the area in scoring at 19 points per contest and also collected nearly eight rebounds a game. Mohr helped

lead the Raiders to a state rank- ing as high as number two, fin- ishing with a 17-6 record. Also, wearing the all-star jersey will be Clair Zaleski and Emily Bower (a 1,000 point career scorer) from Crestview, Ashton Bowersock from Lincolnview, and Mor- gan Magowan from Van Wert.

On the Hoosier side, the girls will be coached by vet- eran Leo coach Carrie Sha- pell. In 11 seasons, Shapell has won 158 games while losing 90. Players from Heritage,

Leo, South Adams, New Haven and Woodlan will par- ticipate. Following the boys game

will be the 3-point contest and

a dunk contest will be featured during halftime of the boys game. Admission is $5 for every- one with preschool admitted free. No passes will be ac- cepted other than administra- tor passes.

Paulding athletes named scholar list

By KEVIN WANNEMACHER Sportswriter The Northwest Conference recently released its list of winter sports scholar athletes with Paulding posting 19 gold level honorees along with nine silver level award winners. Paulding boys basketball players on the gold level in- cluded Corbin Edwards, Na- than Gee, Alex Arellano, Jar- rett Sitton, Preston Johanns, Marcus Miller and Preston Ingol.

Girls basketball honorees were Samantha Meggison, Alli- son Arend, Skyler McCullough, Faith Vogel and Kaylen Hale. Two wrestlers also were rec- ognized in Jordan Weidenham- er and Charles Clapsaddle. To receive gold level status, athletes must letter in the sport and post a 3.5 or higher grade point average during that season. Lucas Hanenkratt and Grif-

fin Harder each received silver status from the boys basket- ball team while cheerleaders listed were Molly Meeker and Emily Knodel.
