A ‘rebirth birthday’ on Father’s Day Life-saving, life-changing bone marrow taken from Dale

Life-saving, life-changing bone marrow taken from Dale McDorman III was transplant- ed successfully into his dad last June, allowing Dale Sr. a quality of life that will be cele- brated this Father’s Day.

By JOE SHOUSE Progress Staff Writer ANTWERP – It’s been a year. To be exact, it was June 19, two days before Father’s Day 2015 when Dale McDorman Sr. received a special gift – the gift of life. He had been diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a condition that affects the bone marrow and the blood cells it produces. If not treated, MDS can turn into acute myeloid leukemia. At the Cleveland Clinic, far removed from their home town of Antwerp, McDorman received from his son, Dale III, a bone marrow transplant. A transplant necessary in order for the elder McDorman to live and experience Father’s Day 2016 and many more days to follow. During his Cleveland Clinic stay following the transplant, Dale received 11 blood transfusions as well as nine platelet transfu- sions. In talking to Dale Sr. recently, there was a strength in his voice that was lacking last year. There was a confidence, an appreciation for life, and a desire to look forward to better days ahead. But it’s not been easy during his road to recovery. The road at times seem long and weary, but slowly it is getting better. “The transplant was June 19 followed by a 40-day stay in the hospital. Once dismissed from the Cleveland Clinic, my wife Anita, and I stayed in an apartment near the hospital before getting the thumbs up to come home in late September,” McDorman said. Inevitably, there were issues along the way, according to Anita.

Body found in Maumee River ID’d as Fort Wayne man

PAULDING – A man’s body that was discovered by canoers in the Maumee River on May 28 has been identified through the Lucas County Coroner’s Office. Paulding County Sheriff Jason K. Landers said that den- tal records were used to confirm the identity of Steven Pascal Ol- iver, age 42, last known to re- side in Fort Wayne. Oliver’s remains were found about two miles east of the In- diana-Ohio state line, west of Antwerp. There were no signs of foul play discovered as a result of the autopsy, the sheriff said. Oliver was last seen on

March 16 in Fort Wayne. “Mr. Oliver had not been re- ported as a missing person. We learned he had been living in shelters around the Fort Wayne area,” said Sheriff Landers. “Our investigation did reveal he suffered from depression and substance abuse.” Records from Allen County, Ind., indicate that Oliver was charged on March 15 with pub- lic intoxication, and released on his own recognizance. He failed to appear for an initial hearing scheduled for March 16 in Allen Superior Court, and an arrest warrant was issued. His remains have been re- leased to his family.

Maumee River remains under recreational public health advisory

A recreational public health advisory remains in

place for the Maumee River in Paulding County. Swimming and wading in the Maumee River is not recommended for children, pregnant or nurs-

ing women, those with certain medical conditions and pets.

If you have been in contact with water from the

Maumee River, rinse your skin immediately. Although most blooms are green algae and not harmful, there are some that are actually a type of cyanobacteria that have the ability to produce toxins – called harmful algal blooms (HABs). These toxins may affect the liver, nervous system and/or skin. Symptoms of exposure to a harmful algal bloom include: rash, hives, blisters, severe diar- rhea, vomiting and abdominal pain. If you have had contact with water in the Maumee River and are displaying these symptoms seek medical care. Paulding County Health Department is collabo- rating with local partners and state partners to stay on top of harmful algal blooms. Bill Edwards, of the Paulding County Health Department, said, “Our priority is the safety and well-being of Paulding County residents. We will make sure the public is aware of the steps we will be taking to stay on top of the situation. We will also make sure the public is made aware of infor- mation in a timely manner.” For more information on harmful algal blooms

visit PCHD’s website at www.pauldingcounty- health.com, or on Facebook: Paulding County Health Department. HAB safety tips:

• Stay out of water that may have a HAB.

• Do not let your children or pets play in HAB debris on the shore.

• After swimming or wading in lake water,

even where no HABs are visible, rinse off with fresh water as soon as possible.

• Never swallow any lake or river water,

whether you see HABs or not.

• Do not let pets lick HAB material from their

fur or eat HAB material.

• Do not drink or cook with lake water.

• See a doctor if you or your children might be

ill from HAB toxins. If your pet appears ill, con- tact your veterinarian.

• Remember, you can still boat, fish and recre-

ate in Ohio’s lakes, streams and rivers. If you plan

to eat the fish you catch, remove the guts and liver, and rinse fillets in tap water before eating.

• Activities near the water such as camping,

picnicking, biking and hiking are safe.

• If you are picnicking, wash your hands before

eating if you have had contact with lake water or shore debris.

• Report the bloom to Ohio EPA by complet-

ing the report form and emailing it to HABmail- box@epa.ohio.gov.

“After being out of the hospital for a week, he got sick and was back in for a few days. His medication changed from time to time and he was taking as many as 12 different kinds twice a day. That has been cut in half recently,” Anita com- mented. At times, the recovery has been difficult, as the days marched slowly by. But Dale has come along way from being very weak to getting stronger every day as his body heals. His body was put through the wringer prior to the transplant with three days of chemo and four days of radiation twice a day. After the procedure, he experienced two additional days of chemo. All the medication forced Dale to lose his appetite and therefore didn’t eat for 21 days, while dropping 40 pounds. “When I first got home, I couldn’t go outside and I real- ized this whole process really put me down and it was much tougher than I thought it would be. My immune system was low, but is much better, much stronger today. Anita and I are getting out more and taking walks together. It’s getting better,” he commented with a sense of reassurance. Dale continues to make periodic trips to the Cleveland Clinic. What was one weekly trip turned to just monthly

and Dale is hopeful the trips will reduce to one every three months very soon. According to his test results, he is doing very well and the

blood counts are normal. Looking back to “transplant day” Dale’s relationship with his son – who gave his bone marrow – has only grown

stronger. Dale III was off work for three weeks and had to deal with some difficult pain in his lower back and hips, but he wouldn’t have had it any other way.

“It was just five hours after the transplant procedure that we walked down the hospital hallway together. It was a spe- cial time of celebration. A time of thankfulness – a time of en- joying each other’s company,” said Dale Sr. The walk down the hall will never be forgotten. The celebration that took place that night still continues to this day. Recently, Dale celebrated his 58th birthday and come July, with his fingers crossed, he hopes to go back to work. On Thursday, June 16, Dale

goes back to Cleveland for a bone marrow biopsy. Both Dale and Anita are hopeful for good results. “As a wife, I can tell you my husband is not the same person he once was. I miss my Dale – my husband. This has changed him and he’s not the outgoing person he used to be. But in time, hopefully this will all change and I believe it will,” said Anita. But the big day will be June 19 – the one-year anniversary. Life is good and deserves to be celebrated. “It’s what I call my re- birth birthday. We will be in church that morning rejoicing in the blessings of life, then we will get together here at the house and celebrate with family. It’s really about my son and the sacrifice he made,” said Dale Sr.

Finally, the celebration would not be complete without Dale expressing his love and appreciation for his wife of nearly 39 years. The past year has been a challenging one, but Anita was always at Dale’s side. “During the transplant pro- cess, until we got home, my wife was at my side. She was always there, never leaving my side. While in the hospital she slept in my room and never left. She was my inspiration and I love her so much,” Dale said. So, in a few days, a quiet family celebration will com- mence. Thankfulness, laughter, joyful blessings will all be ex- perienced that day. And before the day is over, maybe the two Dales will take another walk together and enjoy each other’s company.

Thank You in Memory of Paige Sprow
From the bottom of my heart, I would like to give my deepest
thanks to my family, my friends, and the communities.Throughout
the past years there have been so many of you who have left
your marks on our hearts. There truly aren't words to express how
much all of your love and support has touched us.
So many of you offered your condolences and reminded me
often that Paige will never be forgotten. The thoughtfulness of
everyone is truly amazing. There are far too many of you to offer
my appreciation to individually. I am so grateful for your cards,
flowers, dinners made for my family, every generous donation,
the Celebration of Paige Sprow's Life, and every other thoughtful
deed. Your love and support has given me strength.
I would also like to give special thanks to the Den Herder Funeral
Home, the faculty at the Paulding Exempted Village Schools, the
members of The Paulding Church of the Nazarene, and Pastor
Jeremy Thompson, my rock, for truly caring for our family.
We will never forget the outpouring of love we received from
everyone. And it warms my heart to know that so many of you
will never forget Paige. I love you Paige and I don't know how life
will be without you.
Love and thanks to all of you,

Hop in the pony buggy for the last day of school

It’s a nice sunny day for the clothes to dry, and we have the lines filled with laundry. We have been blessed with sever- al rains over the weekend and this past week. Yesterday was the last day of school for the term. Daugh- ters Verena and Loretta and I picked up my married daugh- ter Elizabeth and attended the school picnic. It was a little chilly until the sun came out. All the pupils were released at 11:30 a.m. Joseph, Lovina and Kevin took our pony, Stormy, and the pony buggy to school in the morning. We all headed to Elizabeth’s house after leaving the school. We spent the afternoon relax- ing on their back patio. They have a woods behind their house, and the river runs close by on their property. They have a new puppy that is a coonhound and Austra- lian Shepherd mix. Hopefully, when it gets bigger, it will help keep the raccoons away from their house. They are having problems with raccoons get- ting in their flower pots and bird feeders at night, and I am afraid that the raccoons will bother their garden. The new puppy is named Shelia, and Kevin had so much fun with her. He walked her through the woods. He told us he was trying to teach her where to look for rac- coons. Kevin has never been coon hunting, but he probably thinks the puppy doesn’t know that. Joseph mowed the yard in an hour and 35 minutes. We bought a big walk-behind mower at the local consign- ment auction this spring. Jo- seph loves to mow with it, and he handles it very well. Joseph is tall for his age so he can handle the big mower. On June 14, Elizabeth will be 22. Our family is planning to spend Saturday evening and Sunday at Timothy and Eliza- beth’s house. Plans are to put tents up in their back yard and cook outside. I am looking forward to all of us being to- gether. It seems the older the children get, the harder it is, because everyone goes differ- ent directions on weekends. Elizabeth is helping to get ready for Susan’s wedding by sewing for me at her house. She likes to use her sewing machine. I cut out my dress, cape and apron for the wed-

ding. I hope to get it finished now, which I’m dreading. in color. Serve warm or cold.

I always loved to read and

still do, but my time is a lot more limited now. When the children were younger, our six oldest children all had to wear glasses. Elizabeth is the only one who needs to wear them

all the time now. Susan, Loret- ta and Joseph do for reading. Verena and Benjamin are okay to go without now.

VAN WERT – Motorists who don’t yield for other vehicles in the right-of-way cause far too many crashes in Ohio each year, according to the Ohio State Highway Pa- trol. They say crashes caused by this violation, known as

failure to yield (FTY), rose in

2015.

Last year there FTY crashes increased 9 percent compared to 2014, with fatal FTY crash- es increasing by 28 percent. “It’s even more troubling that these tend to be more severe than crashes of other causes. Thirty-six percent of FTY crashes resulted in deaths or injuries in 2015, compared to 25 percent of all crashes. In total, 49,473 crashes on Ohio roadways occurred when the at-fault driver failed to yield,

Many make Honor Flight a reality

the employees of Paulding Put- nam Electric Cooperative. It was also the work of the community to help and support our efforts. We had elementary school kids doing fundraisers. We had people from all over the coun- try and throughout the electric cooperative network buying

raffle tickets. The community of erans that fundraising was much community knows the impor-

Grover Hill held a concert and dinner and raised over $7,000 to be one of our gold sponsors; Haviland Drainage Products provided direct funding and was our other gold sponsor. Andrew Hermiller, one of our journeyman linemen from our Columbus Grove office, sold over 70 raffle tickets. We had several contributions come from memorials from local commu- nity members. The list of con- tributors is too long to include in this letter, but please check our website, www.ppec.coop, for the complete list. To raise over $141,000 in a few short months not only takes the commitment from our em- ployees and organization, but that of our community. Paulding Putnam Electric Cooperative serves a large service territory, from Fort Wayne to just outside Lima; but we serve a greater community than just our service territory. The community we serve doesn’t have utility bound- aries. Serving veterans doesn’t come with utility service territories. At Paulding Putnam Electric, we understand that the cooper- ative principle of Commitment

utility boundaries. This is why when people doubted that we could raise enough funds for one Honor Flight (about $70,000) our employees saw this as just another challenge. The final total will fund at least two flights. The Honor Flight is so pow- erful, so meaningful to our vet-

easier than we thought it would be. In fact, one donor said if we didn’t meet our original goal of $70,000 to let him know and he would write a check to cover the needed amount. When we talk about com- mitment, that’s the definition of commitment. These are the types of people we have in our community; people that step-up for a cause. The increased awareness of the Honor Flight program has been an added benefit to our cam- paign. Due to the increased pub- licity, the World War II veteran participation had nearly doubled for the first two flights in 2016. This alone make the whole pro- gram successful. I can’t thank everyone in this letter, but I need to give special thanks to two groups. First, to the Honor Flight of Northeast Indiana. There is no more ded- icated group, serving veterans that I know of. They have been so helpful and supportive and I can’t thank them enough. Sec- ond, to our employee committee that made it all happen: Tara Schlatter, Annette Schreiner, and Steve Kahle. These three were assisted by Erika Willitzer and they made everything pos-

sible. They worked tirelessly to insure everything was perfect; and it was perfect, as the results show. Finally, I want to thank our broad community for their support. We raised $141,000 because we have community support for our veterans. This

tance of serving our veterans and I am glad that in a small way Paulding Putnam Electric could be a part of this veteran support.

Broad range of activities at this year’s fair

Dear Editor, I am enjoying the Paulding County Fair information in the [June 8] paper. It looks like the fair board has worked hard to give us a really broad range of activities this year. I am especially interested in the musical acts of the Len Collier Band and also Spittin’ Image, which I don’t believe was included last year. The Idol contest is a lot of fun, too. Special recognition should go to all the sponsors that make it possible for many peo- ple to attend who couldn’t oth- erwise.

Cheers & Jeers

Sometimes people deserve a little praise and recognition. Some need a swift kick in the pants. This week, the Progress unveils our new “Cheers & Jeers” column, which will run a couple of times a month on this page. The following items were suggested by staff members.

CHEERS

to the junior and senior fair boards, volunteers,

sponsors and all others who worked so hard to prepare for the 2016 Paulding County Fair, now in progress. There’s a lot

of behind-the-scenes planning for this event, a tradition since

1872.

JEERS

to drivers who thoughtlessly (and illegally) text

when they are behind the wheel. Most of us have been be-

hind a vehicle that’s driving erratically, drifting over the line, and it turns out they’re texting while driving. Texters – you’re

a danger to yourself and your passengers, as well as everyone around you on the road.

CHEERS

to 12 Paulding Panther softball players who

received conference scholar-athlete gold level status during

the spring sports season. The 12 reached gold level by earning

a 3.5-4.0 GPA.

JEERS

to those who vandalize cemeteries, parks,

mailboxes and other property. Damage has included graffiti, toppled headstones and trashed bathrooms, and there seems to be an uptick during the summer. Please show some respect to all property, both public and private. Although some villages have installed security cameras to help keep problem areas under surveillance, residents should stay aware of suspicious activity and report it to authorities. And CHEERS to those volunteers who clean up the damage, make repairs and don’t let the vandals win.

to all the generous donors who have given to

such recent projects as Relay For Life and Honor Flight, and free admission and entertainment at the fair. We are always in

awe of how our residents, organizations and businesses finan- cially support worthwhile causes. Want to acknowledge a person or group for an accom- plishment, deed or outstanding effort? Or perhaps frustration about a bad experience or situation? Submit your own cheer or jeer to news@progressnewspaper.org. The Progress will publish items on topics local to Paulding County. For guide- lines, look under “About Us” at www.progressnewspaper.org.

Wobler appointed to board of elections

COLUMBUS – Secretary of State Jon Husted has appointed Bran- don Wobler as a member of the Paulding County Board of Elections. Wobler will fill the unexpired term of Roger Sierer, who passed away in May. Wobler was recommended by the Paulding County Democratic Executive Committee. State law requires bipartisan representation on each of Ohio’s 88 county boards of elections. Each board is made up of two Republi- can members and two Democratic members, all of whom must be qualified electors in the counties for which they serve. The Secretary of State makes appointments to boards of elections based on the rec- ommendations of the executive committees of the respective county political parties. The other board of elections members are David Cline (chairman), Stanley D. Harmon and Linda Weidenhamer. The office is located at 105 E. Perry St., Paulding.

Appeal against court dismissed

PAULDING – An appeal of an Oakwood couple against the Common Pleas Court Judge Tiffany Beckman has been dis- missed. On June 2, Pamela J. (Watson) Lambert and William L. Lambert filed a dismissal of a mandamus complaint they had filed in May with the Third District Court of Appeals. The pair had requested action on pending motions in a 2012 foreclosure ca se. Two journal entries have been filed regarding the case since their appeal. Because of this, the relators volun- tarily dismissed their complaint, indicating “the matter is now moot.”

Fair time: Big job, good job

As I am working in the sec- retary’s office at the Paulding County Fair, it is amazing to see how many people work long hours to make this event happen. There are so many details that I was not even aware of. In fact I think that being a part of the fair board is not only a job for a week in June, but it is basically an all year job. There are things like storage buildings, camp sites, restrooms, groundskeeping and maintenance work to help keep the fairground working and functioning. As I see vendors come in, 4-H kids and their projects, food carts, horses and even porta-pot- ties arriving, you better believe that behind the scenes, the fair board is working and making sure seeing that Paulding Coun- ty has a fair to be proud of. Af- ter all, we are the first one in the State of Ohio. There are some people who are in charge of the Commercial Building and placing exhibitors in their designated places. That in itself is a job which requires planning ahead.

Then there is the midway with many attractions to make sure at- tendees have a good time. Some- one behind the scenes takes care of that also. With the cows, horses, chick- ens, goats, rabbits and pigs coming in for different events, it takes dedicated board mem- bers, volunteers and the many sponsors to make the fair a great place to go. There are food vendors, trac- tors, pulls, auction, horse races,

and entertainment that are all a part of this 156th county fair. One thing I am watching for is the french fry stand and the homemade ice cream! Yum! Oh, and the elephant ears, corn dogs and sausage sandwiches. Someone is in charge of Se- nior Day and Veterans Day at the fair. These are always special days with food, recognition and entertainment. There is a lot for everyone to notice coming to the 156th Paulding County Fair. Work has been done to buildings and the grandstand. When this column prints, the vendors, campers, animals and rides will be in full swing. So when attending our fair say a “Thank You” to all the volun- teers, board members and spon- sors who have been making this event happen for the past 156 years. Do you plan on attending the fair? What is your favorite fair food to eat? How many Paulding County Fairs have you attended? Let me know and I’ll give you a Penny for Your Thoughts!

Paulding, Hardin state highway workers take Roadeo honors

LIMA – Employees in the Hardin and Pauld- ing County Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 1 garages were named the win- ners in the ODOT District 1 truck and loader Road- eo held in Lima. District 1 encompasses Allen, Defiance, Han- cock, Hardin, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert and Wyandot counties. Winning the loader competition was taken by Brad Fuller of the Paulding County garage fol- lowed by Taylor of Wyandot County. John Rink- er of the Hancock County garage finished in third place. Winning the truck competition was Mike Fresh- corn of the Hardin County garage. Finishing sec- ond behind Freshcorn was Tom Mellinger of the Hancock County garage. In third place was Alan Taylor of the Wyandot County garage. The first-ever district team champion award was given to Hancock County, which had the top-two scores in both the truck and loader competition. Also announced at the Roadeo was this year’s Paint the Plow winner, which was Kalida High School. Paint the Plow is a contest which asks area high schools to paint an ODOT plow with their message of school spirit, safety, patriotism or Ohio pride. There were 18 schools from ODOT District 1’s eight-county region participating this year.

Photos of all entries in this year’s Paint the Plow contest are posted on the ODOT District 1 Face- book page: facebook.com/ODOTDistrict1. “We love Roadeo day – it’s a day for our opera- tors to hone and prove their skills and to celebrate the relationship we have with the communities we serve through the paint the plow competition,” said Kirk Slusher, ODOT District 1 deputy director. The Roadeo is a friendly competition which pits equipment operators against one another to test their skill in maneuvering equipment through a se- ries of obstacles intended to mimic situations they encounter on the job. Participants are also required to find deliberately placed mechanical bugs on equipment as part of the pre-trip inspection portion of the competition. The competition also included a test of the rules and laws pertaining to holders of a commercial driver’s license (CDL). All highway technicians for ODOT are required to retain a CDL. “All aspects of the competition are intended to enhance the skill and professionalism of our opera- tors,” said Slusher. The top-two finishers in the district competition in both the truck and loader event will go on to compete against their coworkers in the statewide competition which will be held in Columbus in September.

Emergency training exercise held near Payne over weekend

PAYNE Brigner Truck- ing, located west of Payne on Ohio 613, was the scene on Saturday, June 11 of the Paulding County Local Emer- gency Planning Committee (LEPC) functional hazardous materials exercise. A total of 47 fire and EMS personnel from Antwerp, Cecil/Crane Township, Payne, Paulding, Scott, Grover Hill, Convoy, Allen County, Ind. and other local agencies, as well as volunteers of the American Red Cross from Van Wert, were all on scene for the simulated accident scene. Each county is required by the Ohio Emergency Manage- ment Agency (OEMA) and the Ohio State Emergency Re- sponse Commission (OSERC) to put into practice their emer- gency plan for such incidents once a year. The exercise was evaluated by representatives of the OEMA and OSERC.

In this scenario, a pick-up and a tanker truck carrying diesel fuel collided. The tanker then leaked several gallons of simulated diesel fuel, which was actually water, at the scene. The “driver” of the pick-up, a lifelike dummy that weighed

First responders were required to demonstrate to evaluators their plan for de- contaminating, stabilizing and transporting the victims, and for neutralizing the spilled fuel and containing the runoff.

FALLEN TIMBERS BATTLEFIELD WALK – Enjoy a summer evening stroll and brush up on your history at America’s newest National Park. On Thursday, June 16, the Maumee Valley Heritage Cor- ridor is sponsoring a walk on the Fallen Timbers Battlefield. The group will meet at 6:30 p.m. on the patio of the park’s visitor center and be escorted by a historical interpreter dressed as one of the participants in the decisive 1794 battle. The visitor’s center is located at U.S. 24 and Jerome Road, Maumee. The program is free and open to the public. The recently opened (October 2015) Fallen Timbers Battlefield is perhaps the only 18th century battle site in the United States that looks and feels much as it did the day of the battle.

What’s that yellow flower in the county? Or is it a weed?

Cressleaf groundsel weed found in Ohio wheat, hay fields

By Sarah Noggle OSU Extension Educator Paulding County with additions from Mark Loux PAULDING – It’s a question that has come across my desk, via email and even through so- cial media. It’s not only a ques- tion from farmers but from com- munity members. “What’s that plant growing in the county with the pretty yellow flowers?” Ironically, it’s not a flower but a weed. Cressleaf groundsel (Senecio glabellus), commonly known as Butterweed, is what Paulding County citizens are seeing. Cressleaf groundsel is on the rise in fields across Ohio due to a mild winter that’s allowed many weeds to get an aggressive start this growing season, said a weed scientist in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State Uni- versity. And while cressleaf groundsel isn’t a new problem, the weed, typically found in no-till corn and soybean fields that have not yet been treated with burndown herbicides, is being reported in fairly high numbers in hay and wheat fields, said Mark Loux, an Ohio State University Extension weed specialist. OSU Extension is the state- wide outreach arm of the col- lege. Cressleaf groundsel is a winter annual that emerges in late summer or fall and infests late-summer seedings of forages and hay. It can be a problem for livestock producers because it is poisonous to cattle, horses, goats and sheep, due to the presence of pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs).All parts of the plant are toxic. The weed is also poisonous to humans, he said. Focus on management “This year so far has definite- ly been a big year for cressleaf groundsel, as the mild winter allowed more of the weed to survive,” Loux said. “It’s caught many hay producers by surprise. “However, applying herbi- cides to hay fields now likely won’t reduce the risk of toxicity in animals. And it’s too late for wheat growers to apply any her- bicide to their wheat crops.” Cressleaf groundsel has a hollow and grooved stem, is purplish in color and has yellow sunflower-like flowers. The win- ter annual is best controlled with herbicides in the fall or early spring when the plants are small- er and more susceptible, Loux said. “But at this point, the plant is flowering and there are many more of them,” he said. “So growers are going to have focus on managing the weeds to pre- vent them from going to seed and work to avoid letting the weed get into the supply chain for straw when baling. “Producers have to be careful to ensure that it doesn’t get into the food chain to poison ani- mals.” Timely mowing That means taking steps to mow infestations in time to prevent seed production, and to know what the risk of toxicity in hay or straw based on the level of cressleaf groundsel infesta- tion, Loux said. “Drying or ensiling the plants during the hay or straw making process doesn’t reduce the tox- icity of cressleaf groundsel,” he

One connection leads to another

It was a unique line of con- nections that led from my beloved Limberlost Loblol- ly, where I take my two mile nature trail gigs to downtown Paulding to a McDonald’s in Waynedale just outside of Fort Wayne. It all started as I approached what we popularly refer to as, “the Lob.” As I glanced to the left into a system of trails, I thought for sure that I saw what appeared to be a British soldier tromping through the marsh grass in an area that is one of my most frequented areas. As I approached, sure enough, there stood a gentle- man clad in what appeared to be a uniform from the Revo- lutionary War, a middle-aged man with binoculars and a wild

TEAM HELPS MAKE CEM- ETERY REPAIRS – Last Tues- day, June 7, members of the Paulding High School football team spent time working at Live Oak Cemetery across from the school in Paulding. The athletes reset about 15 headstones of Civil War soldiers. “They worked really hard and did a good job,” said Jon Snodgrass, assistant athletic director and a member of the village cemetery board. He coordinated with coach Ty- ler Arend on the project. The team dug out and removed the old headstones, filled the holes with concrete and replaced the stones, which originally had no footers. Several people have donated money to fix grave markers. He also has worked with Homier’s Monumental in Defiance. “There’s more work to be done,” Snodgrass said. “It’s probably a five-year project to get it completed.”

Payne Council looking at park improvements

By JOE SHOUSE Progress Staff Writer PAYNE - Several items of in- terest were discussed during the Payne Village Council meeting on Monday evening. Council suspended the rules authorizing Mayor Steve Wobler to apply for a Natureworks grant. The grant is a 75/25 match with the total grant amount being $18,820 and the village paying less than $5,000 or 25 percent. If received, the funds will be used for new playground equipment in the park. The mayor hopes to hear if the village will receive the grant by early September. Mayor Wobler has contacted township trustees, Cooper Farms, EDP and White Con- struction seeking donations to- wards the park upgrades. Wobler read a letter from vil- lage solicitor Jim Sponseller ad- vising the village to vote no on Birdstone’s reorganization out of bankruptcy. The village and Payne Ele- mentary principal Jody Dunham have signed an agreement to pur- sue a grant for the construction of the safe routes to school through ODOT. An ordinance, changing the alley behind the pizza shop to a street and naming it Veterans Drive, received its first reading.

County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society, read

a special proclamation from

Paulding Mayor Greg Rein- hart honoring the late Ray

Keck and proclaiming June 20

as Ray Keck Day in Paulding. Gorney said that the soci- ety wanted to honor Keck in some way and asked mem- bers for ideas. It is their way

Genealogical society president Terri Gorney displays a mayor- al proclamation declaring June 20 as Ray Keck Day in Paulding.

“The Paulding County Chapter of the Ohio Genea- logical Society is working with the John Paulding Historical Society to create a ‘Ray Keck corner’ at the museum,” said Gorney. “Using memorial funds collected in Ray’s honor, and with members of the his- torical society doing the work on this corner, Ray’s home of- fice will be recreated.” Gorney said that Kim Sut- ton, president of the historical society, was very receptive to the ideas of the genealogy so- ciety. In Reinhart’s proclamation, he lauded Keck for donating over 36,000 hours to indexing

the vital records of Paulding County, making it easier for the clerks, historians and re- searchers to access records. Mayor Reinhart also praised Keck for compiling a list of early pioneers of the coun- ty and for compiling the first countywide cemetery index. “Ray was always humble about his own accomplish- ments and quick to give oth- ers credit. He had a deep love for his native Paulding and his roots that bound him to the community,” said Gorney. “The society is looking for other ways in which to honor Ray’s memory and what he did for the community.”

Gorney said that Keck had been one of the founding members of the genealogy

society some 30 years ago. In

1986, he was the compiler for the first comprehensive county cemetery index.

“He was the Paulding

County First Families chair for almost 30 years. No one knew more about Paulding County families,” said Gorney. In May, member Sue Pio Kratzman had an excellent idea and contacted Gorney about asking the mayor to cre- ate a “Ray Keck Day.” Gorney contacted Reinhart, who was very responsive to the idea. Working with Gorney, they came up with the wording of the proclamation. Gorney said that June 20 would have been Keck’s 92nd birthday. Gorney read the proclama- tion at the society’s annual picnic at LaFountain Park on June 8.

Billman coming home to lead Antwerp Archers

By JOE SHOUSE Sports Writer ANTWERP – When seeking out a new head coach to lead the Antwerp High School boys basketball program, athletic director Drew Al- timus acted quickly. After all, it was the fa- miliar that caught his attention. After drawing up a short list of potential candidates, Altimus turned his attention to Doug Billman, a famil- iar name to Antwerp sports fans and the com- munity. Billman was recently named head coach after former coach T.J. Hammer resigned near the end of the school year. Billman has been the head coach at Bryan the last nine years and is looking forward to coming home. “Everything seemed to fall in place at the right time and it seemed right to go home,” Billman said. “I recently got engaged to Carly (Honingford) who is also from Antwerp and we have discussed where we would live once married. So, when Drew called it was an easy decision to make but at the same time hard to say good bye to those kids at Bryan.” Billman graduated from Antwerp in 1998 and attended Defiance College where he grad- uated in 2002. He spent nearly four years coaching at Antwerp where he assisted Al- timus with the football program and serving as junior varsity basketball coach when Scott McMichael was the varsity coach. Right now, Billlman will continue to teach

at Bryan but hopes that will change in the fu- ture. “I really enjoyed my coaching experience at Bryan. The kids were great and the people I worked with were good people. I am really excited about the new chapter ready to be writ- ten in my life but that doesn’t take away at how hard it was to walk away,” Billman com- mented. “I had a talk with the Bryan players who are returning next year and I explained to them what I was doing and that I was going back home and they understood. Like I said, they are great young men and I will miss them, but times change and this is an opportunity I couldn’t refuse.”

career with 1,065 points and is fourth over- all in points scored by an Archer. He helped lead the blue-and-white to a district runner-up spot his senior year in 1998. While at Bryan, Billman compiled an overall record of 93-125 including two league titles in 2009 and 2014. “We knew what kind of coach and person Doug was and he’s an obvious fit for our sit- uation here at Antwerp. We are excited to have one of our own come home and lead the program. Doug will also serve on my football coaching staff after former assistant Mike Bute has decided not to coach this year,” said Altimus. Hammer, who coached two seasons, fin- ished with a 20-28 record.

New wrestling coaches named at PHS, AHS

By JOE SHOUSE Sports Writer Two new head varsity coaches have been selected to lead there respective wrestling programs at Paulding and An- twerp. Brian Jacobs, an assis- tant varsity football coach for the Panthers, as well as serving as a volunteer in the wrestling program, was named wrestling head coach last month. Adam Kosch was named to replace his brother, Jeremy, who has

BRIAN JACOBS

Jacobs, a kindergarten teacher at Paulding Elementary, re- places Tony Gonzales who has served as head coach the last couple of years. Jacobs is looking forward

to building a program that has

suffered in numbers in recent years. “Last year I had the oppor- tunity to coach a few matches

and got the fire burning again,

I guess you could say, and

when the opening was posted this year I applied,” said Ja- cobs. Looking to the future and especially this next season, Ja- cobs sees a rebuilding process. The numbers were low and he wants to build the program and he knows that it starts at a very early age. “We graduated one senior in Kage Seals and so we have some kids coming back. But we need to start a wrestling club or program that will en- gage the younger kids in the lower grades. We have those kinds of programs for other sports like basketball and foot- ball and we need to consider the same for wrestling.” The newly named coach has started open mats twice a week

for the high school kids and is excited about having six to eight kids attending. “So far it’s been good. We don’t have any seniors but we have several freshmen in- volved as well as a few soph- omores and juniors. It’s going to take some time to get this where we want it but I know the talent is here and we just need to continue to work hard.” This will be Jacobs first

but he brings a wealth of ex- perience as a successful wres- tler. A high school graduate from Kansas Lakota, Brian played multiple sports and on the wrestling mat went unde- feated his senior regular sea- son before finishing 47-2 with

tinue to build the character in the lives of those who wear the blue- and-white and he understands how theses young kids want to wrestle, get better, and win. “We are going to continue to build character in our team members. We have been thin when it comes to numbers but we will continue to work hard and build the Antwerp program.

It may be a lofty goal but we are

going to work at seeing our first state qualifier. We have some young talented wrestlers and

if they hang in there and work

hard it’s possible to reach that goal,” Kosch said. Kosch, who considers

scheduling conflicts as head himself as one with a calm

personality looks forward to coaching but also at teaching

and building up the confidence level of his wrestlers. “It will come with time and hard work but we will develop

a solid group of individuals

that will bring pride to the Ar- cher wrestling team,” Kosch concluded.
