Bill Croy, a retired minister and
native of Ottawa, Ohio, threw out
the ceremonial frst pitch at the Great
American Ball Park on Sunday, July
22. Bill is in the advanced stages
of ALS disease and was chosen to
represent those individuals in cen-
tral Ohio afficted with this terminal
disease and to represent those profes-
sionals looking for a cure.
I cannot exactly remember the
frst time I met Bill, but it had to be
sometime in September of 1967 on
the campus of Ohio Northern Uni-
versity. He was on the football squad
and I was hoping to make the basket-
ball team. Bill was a small town kid
from Putnam County and my being
the same from Mercer County helped
us soon make connections, and a
friendship developed.
It is often hard to stay in touch
with people when we are separated
by distance, especially those who are
good for our well being. Bill, to my
knowledge, dated only one girl in
high school and college. He chose
the perfect life mate in Dorothy. A
few visits to their home after college,
during one of which I broke a chair,
the usual Christmas cards and yearly
summaries, kept us in touch but not
close enough.
It probably was the only Christ-
mas card I have ever read three
times. It actually said after each
reading that Bill had been diagnosed
with amyotrophic lateral sclero-
sis, ALS, or more commonly called
Lou Gehrigs Disease. This disease
progressively attacks the nerves that
control the voluntary and involuntary
muscles. Now, as in the time of the
Yankees Iron Horse, there is no pres-
ent cure for this fatal disease. At the
Cincinnati Reds Park, I described
Bills situation and the fact that he
was going to throw the opening
pitch for todays game. My security
worker/host responded, What cour-
age. If that were me I would prob-
ably be home with the blanket pulled
over my head.
Without a doubt, Bill Croy is the
most positive person I know. He
greets every person and every situa-
tion with a smile on his face and an
idea why things will work out for the
best. When I frst spoke with Bill at
Cincinnati, I told him of my admira-
tion for his attitude in facing all lifes
fastballs as well as curves and brush-
back pitches with equal skill. He
waited a second and then said, This
one was hardest by far and took some
time. It was ultimately a typical re-
sponse by Bill to his illness. We f-
nally decided that while I am alive,

I saw a piece the other day that
compared the status of the National
Debt and President Obama. It
states: From George Washington to
George Bush the years were 1789
to 2008. The total national Debt
in those years totaled 6.3 trillion.
As for President Obama in only
one term in office he added to the
national debt a grand total of 6.5
Trillion. not too bad for only four
years! As of Thursday 26th 2012
the national Debt was $15.88
Trillion Dollars. That figures out to
$50,590 per person in the united
States. You can send your check to
the Whitehouse in care of President
Obama. I am sure he will find a
way to spend it.
Has any of you out there learned
any thing useful from the TV
political commercials? Have you
learned any thing that would help
you decide just whom to vote for?
You wont learn much from MuD

seems to be from both candidates.
Why cant they sit down face to
face and discuss the condition of
the United States of America and
how they plan to solve this big
problem? Of course you know as
well as I do that will never happen.
O there will be political debates
but have you learned anything
from them in the past?

Your 401(k) offers tax-deductible contributions, tax-deferred growth of
earnings potential and a variety of investment options so its a great tool
for building retirement savings. Yet like all tools, your 401(k) must be used
properly to get the best results. Thats why you should review your 401(k) at
least annually and make whatever adjustments are needed.
Depending on where you work, you may get some 401(k) review help
from your plan provider. But if that assistance isnt available, you might want to
consult with a financial professional to make sure youre getting the maximum
benefit from your plan.
As you begin to review your 401(k), your first question should probably
be this:
How much should I contribute? At the very least, try to put in enough to
receive your employers matching contribution, if one is offered. If you dont
earn this match, you are essentially walking away from free money. Beyond
this, though, the amount you put into your 401(k) might depend on what other
retirement savings vehicles you have available. For instance, if youre eligible,
you may also want to contribute to a Roth IRA, which offers tax-free growth
potential, provided youve had your account for five years and dont start
taking withdrawals until youre 59.
Of course, its not only how much you put into your 401(k) that determines
its success its also how you choose to allocate your investment dollars.
(Keep in mind that asset allocation does not guarantee a profit or protect
against loss.) Your 401(k) may have a dozen or more investment choices,
such as stock funds, bond funds and money market funds. To choose the right
investment mix, youll need to consider a variety of factors, including these:
Your age Generally speaking, the younger you are, the more
aggressive you can afford to be with your 401(k) investments, because
youll have decades in which to potentially overcome the inevitable down
periods of the market. As you get older, you may wish to invest somewhat
more conservatively, but youll still need some growth potential in your 401(k)
portfolio.
Your goals Everyone has different goals for retirement. You might
want to retire early and travel the world, while your co-worker desires to
work as long as possible and then, upon retirement, stay close to home and
pursue hobbies. Because you each have different goals, with different income
needs, you also may need to follow different investment strategies within your
401(k).
Your other retirement income sources If you have a variety of
retirement income sources a pension from another job, an IRA, a spouse
with generous retirement benefits you may need to invest differently,
perhaps less aggressively, than if you had fewer options for retirement
income.
Apart from putting away as much as you can into your 401(k) and
choosing the right investment mix, what else can you do to get the most out
of your plan? Heres a suggestion: If you have worked at various jobs and
acquired multiple 401(k)s, consider rolling them over into one account. You
might save money on fees and reduce paperwork, but more importantly,
youll be able to concentrate your resources and pursue a unified investment
approach, with your investment dollars working together toward your ultimate
retirement goals.
As you can see, a 401(k) review and rollover can reward you in many
ways so do whatever it takes to maximize your 401(k)s performance.

Within a marriage, a man and a womans fnancial circumstances are generally pretty much equal. But if a
divorce occurs, the womans situation tends to be somewhat more challenging than that of her ex-spouse. And
thats why, during this major life transition, you may want to meet with a professional fnancial advisor to go over
your spending needs and your cash fow, so that you know what you absolutely need today and how you can
plan for tomorrow.
Before we get into some possible steps you can take, lets look at some of the reasons that women may fare
worse than men, fnancially speaking, following a divorce:
* Lower income The average womans family income drops by 37% after divorce, according to the U.S.
Census Bureau. In many cases, divorce exacerbates a situation in which women were already trailing men in
earnings. In fact, women still only earn 77 cents for each dollar earned by men, according to the U.S. Bureau of
Labor Statistics.
* Smaller retirement accounts The average balance on womens defned contribution plans (such as 401(k)
plans) is only 60% of mens average balances, according to LIMRA, a fnancial services research organization.
Of course, averages are just that averages. But whether you recognize yourself in the above numbers
or not, consider these suggestions:
* Create an emergency fund. Try to put six months to a years worth of living expenses in a liquid account.
Once youve established this emergency fund, you wont have to dip into long-term investments to pay for
unexpected costs, such as an expensive car repair, a new furnace or a large medical bill.
* Contribute as much as you can afford to your retirement accounts. Even if you will eventually receive
some of your ex-spouses retirement funds, you need to take full advantage of your own savings opportunities
because its pretty hard to save too much for retirement. If money is tight, it wont always be easy, but contribute
as much as you can to your 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored retirement plan. At a minimum, put in enough to
earn the employers match, if one is offered.
* Rebalance your investment portfolio. If you are now investing for yourself, youll want to take a close look
at your asset mix to make sure it is appropriate for your situation. For example, your risk tolerance may be quite
different than that of your ex-spouses. So if you now have total control over an investment portfolio, you need to
make sure it refects your needs and preferences. Consequently, you may need to rebalance your holdings.
* Above all, get some help. As mentioned above, now is a good time to meet with a fnancial advisor. And
if you dont have much experience in managing your fnances, you may even fnd it helpful to work with a trust
company, which can collaborate with your fnancial provider to manage your assets and also provide a variety
of other functions, including bill payment and record keeping. A trust companys services can prove especially
valuable to you and your family should you ever become incapacitated.

Question: I read a recent article on Lyme disease in this area. How can I protect my pet from ticks and
getting Lyme disease?
Answer: The best protection is prevention. Lyme disease is mainly transmitted from a bite of an infected
deer tick. Lyme disease is cause by a spirochete, borrelia burgdorferi. The transmission occurs through the bite
of an infected tick. Once the Lyme disease organism is in the blood stream, it is then carried to many parts of the
body and usually localizes in the joints. Many species of ticks can carry Lyme disease, but the most common
is the deer tick.
Lyme disease is more diffcult to diagnose in animals than in people. The characteristic rash does not
develop in dogs or cats. Many times other symptoms of the disease go unrecognized or are delayed. The
symptoms of Lyme disease are very similar to those of many other diseases. Pet owners usually frst notice
their pet experiencing generalized pain or not eating. Because of this, Lyme disease is not considered until other
diseases have been eliminated. Dogs affected with the disease may have high fevers, walk on eggshells, or
begin limping. Untreated, the symptoms may disappear only to return in the future.
Dogs with symptoms of lameness, swollen joints, and fever may have your veterinarian suspect Lyme
disease. Diagnosing Lyme disease is done with blood tests. There are two types of blood tests available: an
antibody test and a PCR test. The antibody test does not detect the actual spirochete but detects the antibodies
created by exposure to the organism. This test may give a false negative if the pet infected has not yet formed
enough or never forms antibodies. This occurs with pets with suppressed immune systems. Also, a pet that has
been infected for a long period of time may no longer have enough antibodies present to detect. Apolymerase
chain reaction (PCR) test is a DNAtest that is very specifc and very sensitive. The best sample for this test is
fuid from an affected joint. Using a blood sample can produce a false negative because not all dogs have the
spirochete in their blood cells. Therefore with both tests, a positive test is meaningful, but a negative is not.
Once diagnosed, Lyme disease is controlled by antibiotics. Lyme spirochete is a bacterium that requires a
lengthy course of treatment to completely eradicate the organism. Your veterinarian may select an antibiotic to
treat your infected pet that may not be effective against the disease. This usually occurs if the infection is long-
standing. Most times changing to a different antibiotic is effective. There are times when the initial infection will
recur or the pet will become re-infected after being bitten by another infected tick. This is why prevention is the
best protection against Lyme disease.
Avaccine is available for protecting dogs from Lyme disease. The initial vaccination is done twice at two- to
three- week intervals. A booster is then given annually. Topicals can be used to protect your pet from ticks.
These are applied once monthly. They are available for cats and dogs.

Celina Couple Receives Albert Heckler
Award from Cheryl Ann Programs
Louis and Dorothy Hoyng never imagined that theyd be-
come involved with Cheryl Ann Programs.
They were raising three happy, healthy boys in their Celina
home. Louie operated his custom upholstery shop next door,
and Dorothy worked in the high school cafeteria. They were a
typical family.
Then a very atypical thing happened. Their middle son,
Brian, was struck by lightning in 1981 when he was 16. With
that bolt out of the blue, the Hoyngs lives changed forever.
The odds of being struck by lightning are one in 280,000,
but the Hoyngs couldnt afford to spend much time thinking
about their terrible luck. They had a son who needed them
more than he ever had. The first years after Brians accident,
which left him with severe disabilities, were very difficult,
they said, as they searched for someone who could help them
help Brian.
Their school district helped as much as it could.Finally, then-
Superintendent Ralph Stelzer recommended a place the Hoyngs
knew about but had never visited as parents: Cheryl Ann.
Cheryl Ann was the best thing that ever happened to us,
Louie Hoyng said. It gave Brian his life back.
The people of Cheryl Ann helped Brian with his everyday
life. They gave him a place to go and jobs to do. He made new
friends, and enjoyed everything about his experiences there,
up to and including the bus ride out to Mud Pike.
When he would see Sam Morden (his bus aide) he would
just smile, and the people in Adult Day Services really knew
how to make him laugh, Dorothy Hoyng said.
It wasnt long before the Hoyngs were finding ways to re-
pay Cheryl Ann for its help. They were regular volunteers.
Louie Hoyng completed upholstery jobs for the unique
equipment used at Cheryl Ann, and often, said Superintendent
Mike Overman, Louie would forget to send us a bill. He
also served a term on the county MRDD board and was the
board president.
For all that, and for their tireless advocacy on behalf of
their son, the Hoyngs received the Albert Heckler Award at
the staff appreciation banquet in March. The award is given
each year to a Cheryl Ann family that exemplifies service and
advocacy.
The Hoyngs both served as good examples of first-rate
advocates for their son, Overman said. They rarely ever
missed a day spending time with him, and they always spoke
up to be sure his needs were being met. They were really spe-
cial parents for Brian, and really good supporters of our pro-
gram.
Brian Hoyng died in February 2008 at the age of 43. In the
years after the lightning strike he taught his family a lot about
patience, hope, endurance and acceptance. He introduced the
Hoyngs to a world they had only seen from the outsidebut it
was a world where they found welcome and acceptance.
We met some wonderful people during our years at Cheryl
Ann, Dorothy Hoyng said. They worked their hearts out
helping us with Brian.

Stateline Writers Meet
At the April meeting of the Stateline Writers Club, members read
profiles they had written about someone, living or dead or make-
believe, and member Eileen Whitsetts special activity of having mem-
bers combine pictures of particular scenes with a person or people
assigned to them to put into that scene brought interesting results.
Sue Miller and Gretchen Bollenbachers proposal for a special
meeting designed to attract new members was described and approved.
Members will be hosted by the Coldwater Public Library in June for
a reading of their best work.
At the next meeting, which will be on Saturday, May 16, mem-
bers will rehearse for their special program in June.
Stateline club members meet the 3rd Saturday of each month at
10 a.m. at the Celina Mercer County Library. Anyone interested in
coming to a meeting or becoming a member is cordially invited to
attend.
Celina Rotary Dog Park Dedicated
BY: BETTY LOU DENNEY/HALL
Opening day at the Celina Rotary Dog Park received
rave revues from the dogs. As the gates opened for the first
time on Tuesday May 12, dogs of all sizes were seen mak-
ing their way to the park to get a chance to run in over 3
acres of wide open spaces of the chain-linked fenced in
area. Small dogs area is an acre and the large dogs have
over 2 acres. The new park, which is one of newest and
biggest things happening in the State Parks around the coun-
try, was made possible due to the efforts of Deborha Borns,
Rotary Club President. Her friend, Darlene Lynskey, is also
working on getting a State Dog Park in her home town of
St. Marys. The two dog lovers along with many volunteers
worked many hours with the help of the State and Craig
Morton, who is the regional manager of Grand Lake St.
Marys. Together they cleared away debris from the previ-
ously unused land. The Park is located at the end of West
Bank Road
Deb Borns saw her idea come to life with the help of the
Celina Rotary Clubs major donation and businesses as well
as individuals who helped with labor and monetary dona-
tions. The idea came to her after visiting another dog park.
At the dedication ceremony Deb thanked many of the
people who made the park possible. Jeff Larmore, Past
Rotary President and Celina City Council Member spoke
as his 150 pound Newfoundland, Bentley checked out the
park. Jeff is also a large contributor to the park in honor of
the recovery of Bentley after he had been lost for several
days. Craig Morton, Regional Manager of State Park Gand
Lake St. Marys and John Hunter, Assistant Chief of the
Division of Parks and Recreation also spoke at the dedica-
tion ceremony. Deb concluded her speech with some wise
lessons that she has learned from her own dogs. A few of
which were: Never leave home without your leach and
your ID. If you stare at someone long enough, you will get
what you want. Last, if it is not wet and sloppy it is not a
real kiss.
One of the many visitors enjoying running free on dedi-
cation day was a lab /poodle mix owned by Dave Hochstien,
professor at Wright State University. He has other dogs at
home but decided to only bring one at a time. He com-
mented that this was the first time his dog had this much
exercise since he got him a year ago.
There are a few small problems to work out with the
park, such as the water faucet would not shut off and there
was a small hole under the fence in the small dog side of
the park, which of course was found by one of the little
furry visitors on dedication day. These problems will be
easily fixed. Memberships ($10) to Fur Ever Friends are
being sold to help with the upkeep of the park. The use of
the park is free to the public. One of the additions they
would like to have is benches added to the park for the
comfort of the owners.
The green stations placed around the fence for the dog
wastes were given at a discount by Florida based company
named DogiPot. Gary Brown, Assistant Operations Man-
ger, heard about the plans for the park and wanted to help
by giving discounts on the pots. The company has all Oxi-
biodegradable bags inside the pots for your dog waste. Gary
flew in from Florida to be a part of the ribbon cutting and
opening of the park. More of their products can be found
by going to: www.propet.org.
If visiting the park remember to follow the rules that are
posted at the entrance. Common sense is your guide such
as:
Dogs should have their current shots
The park has little dog and big dog sections, keep
dogs in their own spaces.
Dont leave dog unattended
Do not bring a dog that shows aggressive behavior
Keep small children under close supervision
Clean up after your own dog
Never bring a dog to the park that has an illness.
These are just a few precautions to remember. Check
the rules before entering the park and you and your dog
will have a great time The Park is open daylight to dark
everyday.

It was not an easy day physically
for Bill. Temperatures at feld level
approached 90-plus degrees and the
humidity was not far behind. Breath-
ing has recently become a critical is-
sue for Bill. ALS has a mind of its
own and my diaphragm is not func-
tioning and my core muscles are now
compensating and helping for my
breathing. Bill is the one facing this
disease but Sunday, as has been the
usual case, he had the help of wife
Dorothy, son Jeremy, and daughter
Megan, along with some members
of the medical crew who having
been treating and monitoring him
for months. It addition to that core
group, scores of people who have
become known as Bills Backers,
showed up to support their friend and
his cause. Fortunately ALS is a dis-
ease that strikes relatively few people,
but unfortunately, this means there is
less fnancial motivation for the phar-
maceutical and medical industries to
devote money and research time for
a cure for this disease. Unfortunately
a cure will not be found in time for
Bill, but he has already inspired many
friends and members of his church
to help in the cause of defeating this
devastating disease. Last September
the ALS Association of Central and
Southern Ohio sponsored a Walk to
Defeat ALS in Columbus. Over 200
people, many wearing Bills Backers
tee shirts, registered as supporters for
Bill, walked, and raised over $27,000
in donations for the cause. Bill is a
retired minister who led churches in
Lima, Columbus, and Clintonville
(Maple Grove united Methodist
Church), but he was also an out-
standing athlete before and after he
started his work in the Church. At
Ottawa Glandorf he won varsity let-
ters in football, track, basketball, and
baseball. At Ohio Northern he won
seven varsity letters, three in football
and four in track. He was chosen
as a member of the Athletic Hall of
Fame at both institutions. Bill said
baseball was his fourth best sport and
was worried about the throw from his
wheel chair. When time for the toss
came, he was prepared with his ONU
ball cap and baseball glove just in
case anyone threw the ball back and
wanted to play catch. His throw from
a sitting position was graceful. Bill
made an athletic toss, nothing like the
awkward motions of most celebrities
and politicians we usually see. As
one fan commented, Bill looked like
Brandon Phillips throwing to frst
from a sitting position after a great
stop in the hole at second.
The Bride recently took me to a
performance of the Fort Wayne Phil-
harmonic Orchestra. It is not some-
thing I would do every weekend, but
it was okay and I enjoyed the trans-
lation of some of the words that the
100-plus member chorus was singing
in German. The song was one of joy,
actually a drinking tune. The words
essentially said, raise your glass and
celebrate if you have been a good
and helpful friend to just one person
in your life. Bill Croy may have got-
ten a lousy deal when this rare gene
was handed out some 63 years ago,
but the celebrations of living with
courage and grace will continue for a
very long time with not one, but hun-
dreds of true friends.

Summer Rental

It was August and time for
the much awaited vacation at
nags Head. The girls, now
in their mid-thirties, had been
friends since childhood. ellis
had just been downsized from
her job at a bank in Philadelphia,
Dorie was an english teacher at
Our Lady of Angels---the same
high school they had attended
in Savannah, and Julia was a
model, most recently living
in London. Although location
prevented them from getting
together often, their friendship
had the survived the years of
boyfriends, husbands, joys, trials
and deaths. They had rented a
house for the entire month and
originally planned for it to be a
chick trip---just the three of them.
But since Dorie was a newlywed,
ellis and Julia agreed to let her
bring Stephen. And Dories sister
Willa, who had always wormed
her way into their group, invited
herself along. As the planner
and organizer, ellis was put in
charge of finding a house large
enough to accommodate
all of them. Pulling up
to ebbtide, she was
not impressed. Instead
of an inviting green
lawn with billowing
blue hydrangeas, there
was a bumper crop of
weeds with a busted-up
Styrofoam cooler and a
sodden heap of yellowing
newspapers. Inside were
sparsely furnished rooms, dinky
little window air conditioners,
chipped mismatched dishes
and no automatic ice maker or
dishwasher. It wasnt what was
advertised on the website VRBO;
Vacation Rentals by Owner. In
fact, the place was a dump. She
shot an e-mail to the owner, Mr.
Culpepper about the condition of
the house and then quickly went
to work to make it look charming.
Before the others arrived, she
had put away the groceries and
stocked the liquor cabinet. When
the dark red mini-van pulled into
the driveway, it looked like it was
going to be a girls only holiday
anyhow. Stephen and Willa were
missing. As the story progresses,
we eventually learn why they will
not be joining the group. But that
brings up the issue of the cost.
Would they chip in and live up
to their original commitment or
stiff the girls? That would leave
ellis, Julia and Dorie scrambling
for money. Considering the time
frame of the whole book
is only one month, a
lot happens. A crime in
New Jersey becomes
intertwined with the
lazy days on the beach.
Throw in a bit of summer
romance and it makes for
an interesting story.
This would not be on
the list of award winning
novels; but that doesnt
mean it is not enjoyable. I stayed
up late several nights because I
wanted to see what would happen
next to ellis, Julia, Dorie, and the
other characters they met during
the month. If youre looking
for a light summer novel, check
out Summer Rental and imagine
yourself on the dunes and beaches
of Nags Head, North Carolina.
You can find it in fiction, large
print, and as an audio catalogued

Hello...remember me? Im your flag. Some folks call me Old Glory, others call me the Stars and Strips, the Ensign, or just...the flag. But whatever they call me, I am your flag. And, as I proudly state, The Flag of the
United States of America. Something has been bothering me lately. I was wondering if I might talk it over with you. Its about you and me.
I remember sometime ago (I think it was Memorial Day, or was it the 4th of July) when people lined up on both sides of the street to watch a parade. When your father saw me coming along, waving in the breeze, he
took his hat off and held it against his left shoulder. His hand directly over his heart. Remember?
And you. I remember you! Standing there-straight as a soldier. You didnt have a hat on, but you gave the correct salute. They taught you in school to place your hand over your heart. Remember your little Sister? Not to
be outdone, she was saluting the same as you. I was proud, very proud, as I came down that street. Oh, yes, there were some Servicemen there, standing at attention, giving the military salute. Ladies as well as men, civilans
as well as military, paid me respect...reverence.
Now, if I sound a bit conceited...well...I have the right. I represent the finest country in the world-The United States of America. More than one aggressive nation has tried to haul me down, only to feel the fury of this
freedom loving country. Many of you had to go overseas to defend me. A lot more blood has been shed since those patriotic parades of long ago and Ive had a few stars added since you were a boy, but Im still the same ole
flag.
Dad is gone now...and the hometown has a new look. The last time I came down your street, I noticed some of the old landmarks had given way to a number of new buildings and homes. Yes sir, the old town sure has
changed. I guess I have too, cause I dont feel as proud as I did back then.
I see youngsters running and shouting through the street, college boys and girls disrupting our campuses, people selling hot dogs and beer while our National Anthem is played...everything from apathy to riots. They
dont seem to know-or care-who I am. Not too long ago, I saw a man take his hat off when I came by...he looked around, didnt see anybody else with theirs off...so he quickly put his back on.
Now-when I come down your street, you just stand there with your hands in your pockets. Occasionally you give me a small glance and then look away. When I think of all the places Ive been...Normandy;
Guadalcanal; Iwo Jima; Battle of the Bulge; Korea; Vietnam; and Desert Storm; I wonder-whats happened? Im still the same ole flag.
How can I be expected to fly high and proud from buildings and homes when within them there is no thought, love or respect for me? Whatever happened to patriotism? Your patriotism? Have you forgotten what I stand
for? Have you forgotten all of the battle fields where men fought and died to keep this nation free? When you salute me, you salute them. Take a look at the Memorial Honor Rolls sometime. Look at the names of those who
never came back...some of them were friends or relatives of yours...maybe even went to school with you. Thats why youre saluting...NOT ME!
Well, it wont be long before I come down the street again. So when you see me, stand straight, and place your hand over your heart. Do this because I represent you. Youll see me wave back, my salute to you.

August first was a day of
Celebration for the African
American citizens of Carthagena.
The August 10, 1876 Mercer
County Standard, carried
the article, Freedmans Day
at Carthagena celebrated the
Independence of Hayti [Haiti].
The August 8, 1889, Mercer
County Observer, carried the
article, August Celebration for
Colored People at Carthagena.
Carthagena is a topic in the
history of Mercer County, of
which I have received requests for
information, the past four decades.
I recently completed the book,
Marion Township Bibliography
of Historical Resources to serve
people doing research in the
villages in Marion Township.
A Kansas Author asked me for
information about Samuel Wattles,
who opened the Wattles Negro
Industrial School. (Augustus
Wattles is buried at Mound City,
Kansas.) The oldest School for
adults in Mercer County would
have been that Wattles Negro
Industrial School, begun in 1835.
november 11, 1842, the school
became known as emlen Institute.
That name lasted until the school
closed in 1857. An author from
Bucks County, Pennsylvania
asked for my help because she was
following the story of the emlen
Institute at Carthagena, because
the emlen funds originated in
Bucks County.
A Church historian was tracing
religious history at Carthagena.
I referred her to the Recorders
Office at the Mercer County
Courthouse, to Deed Record
M., p. 170, whereby Carthagena
residents Charles and Lucinda
Moore, deed lot # 56 to the
Trustees of the African Methodist
episcopal Church, on September
29, 1841. On the 1888 Plat Map,
this Church was located on Lot #
56, at the southeast corner of Pearl
and Harrison Streets. (Charles
Moore laid out the Village of
Carthagena at the intersection
of U.S. 127 and St. Rt. 274, on
December 28, 1840.) Another
record of religious history was
John Hatfield provided land to
the Colored Baptist Church of
Beaver Creek, of which deed was
recorded March 14, 1849.
School historians following the
history of the schools at Carthagena
seek a variety of resources. In
May 1858, African American
Students were in a separate
building, under the Teacher Mr.
George Coons. The 1888 Mercer
County Atlas, indicated that one
Colored School, stood two
miles north of Carthagena and one
mile west on Siegrist Jutte Road.
The 1900 Mercer County Atlas
listed another Colored School,
one mile west of Carthagena,
at the southeast corner of the
intersection of Carthagena Road
and Coldwater Creek Road. The
Carthagena School Board of
education minutes stated that the
African American School was
sold August 11, 1900, and all
Students went to School in the
same building.
Sister Regina Albers,
C.PP.S., provided history of the
C.PP.S. Teachers 1891-1895 at
Carthagena. The first five grades
were housed in the brick building,
built in 1892. The upper three
grades were in the frame building,
which had served as the former
Franzer-Uppenkamp school, two
miles away. The October 28,
1899 Mercer County Standard
wrote that the Carthagena school
house was sold; it is unclear which
building was sold. The Franzer-
Upperkamp School students
were transferred to Carthagena in
1936. The Dahlinghaus School
students were transferred to the
Carthagena School, July 13,
1940. The January 1961 Mercer
County Chronicle wrote about
the Carthagena School District
being closed and students being
transferred to St. Henry District
Schools in the Fall Term 1961.
Carthagenas rich history
is reflected in this Marion
Township Bibliography of
Historical Resources published
by the Mercer County Historical
Society.

Society President Joyce Alig,

The original St. Charles Seminary Building had been the Emlen
Institute building, in the center of this photograph. St. Charles
Seminary added the east and west wings. This building was torn
down in 1926, after the new Seminary building was built.

Sunday at
Erastus United
Methodist
Church
On Sunday, July 22nd, eras-
tus United Methodist Church,
on erastus Durbin Road, hosted
its 1st annual Motorcycle Sun-
day. Members and friends rode
their motorcycles to church for
the 9:00 a.m. service. Afterward
the congregation moved outdoors
and Pastor Allan Brown prayed
for safe traveling mercies for
the riders, who then enjoyed the
beautiful weather as they rode to
Decatur, In for lunch at The Back
40 Junction. Other members of
the congregation made the trip to
Decatur in their own vehicles to
enjoy the meal with the riders.
