PAULDING The old Paulding County Jail
now has a new owner, thanks to Jeff and
Cassie Hollis of All Trades Historical
Restoration LLC. Their winning bid was
$11,777 and their proposal is to clean and re-
pair the exterior and restore the building to its
original appearance as best as possible.
The Hollises are not newcomers to the
restoration business. Their business boasts
three generations of tradesmen who restored
many old buildings. Cassies father, RJ, along
with family members, have restored 147 court-
houses including Pauldings to their origi-
nal condition.
Their plan is to make the building their of-
fice headquarters, remodel cell area into apart-
ments for new tenants along with housing their
employees, and rent office space.
Jeff Hollis said that they are currently work-
ing on the Paulding County Library and are
also restoring the old bank building and as
soon as those are complete, the work can
He noted, I have a passion for restoration
and am happy to invest in this town. I estimate
that it will take at least $100,000 to get it re-
Jeffery and Cassie Hollis currently reside in
Tampa, Fla., but will soon be calling Paulding
their home. Hollis said, We like this small
town and I love saving and restoring old build-
ings. We will be looking for a home in the area.
When I was little my mom used to say that
I loved old buildings and fixing up stuff.
Laughingly he said, I would tear something
apart, just so I could put it back together.
The new owners believe the old jail site will
be a perfect place for their business headquar-
ters. Cassie is an OSHA trainer and is familiar
with all aspects of building safety and codes.
She runs the business part of the operation.
The front of the old jail is to be divided and
part of it will be used for Cassies office. Other
professional office space will also be available
for anyone wanting to rent it.
Hollis said, My work crew sometimes
comes from different locations and so I want to
take the cell blocks and make them into small
apartments so they will have a place to stay.
Jeff Hollis said that he first toured the old jail
back in November. He said that he was willing
then to put his hat in the ring as a potential
buyer, but nothing was ever really discussed.
He said the commissioners had discussed
tearing it down, but he was excited to get a call
from Reta Ptak, owner of Rip It Fit (located in
the old bank building that Hollis was restoring)
and a voicemail from Progress editor Melinda
Krick informing him that bids were going to be
taken on the old jail.
That initiated the first round of bidding. The
second set of bids was Hollis lucky one. He
was very happy when Paulding County
Commissioner Tony Zartman called him last
week and told him that he had the winning bid
and the property was his and.
He said, The old jail has been a part of the
history of this town for over 100 years. I am
just glad to have the opportunity to help bring
it back to its original structure. It is a fine old
building and beautifully and structurally

the property with the mini-
mum starting bid of
$14,784.92. Paulding Mayor
Greg White offered a bid at
that amount, which was ac-
cepted after no other bids
were offered.
This amount includes al-
most $5,400 in delinquent
land taxes and related fees
plus over $7,500 to the
Village of Paulding to reim-
burse costs of demolishing the
remains of the building after
the fire, to total $13,284.54.
In addition, the sale price
includes poundage of
$194.56; order of sale, $50;
court costs, $1,130.82; and
deed and recording, $125.
After the auction, White
said that the village bought
the property because it was
the only way we are going to
recoup our money. We have
about $7,600 invested in
He added that village offi-
cials didnt want to see the
sale go to a third auction; in
that scenario, any amount
could have been accepted and
would be applied to the delin-
quent property taxes first.
The village has no set plan
for the lot, White said. One
option is to put it up for sale,
but village council will dis-
cuss alternatives.
Village solicitor Mike
Jones noted that if the village
does sell the lot, it will have to
be advertised for bids.
The sale ends the long saga
of the Hotel Barnes, which
dates to 1893.
The vacant building caught
fire and was destroyed on Jan.
15, 2012 in a spectacular
blaze that threatened many
nearby buildings. The fire was
ruled arson, but no arrests
have been made to date.
The rubble was removed
late last fall.

minor motor vehicle mishaps were recorded, and snow

Paulding County commission-
ers awarded a bid to sell the
historic county jail after bids
were opened last week.
Four sealed bids were re-
ceived for the 1876 former jail
and sheriffs office plus two
lots. After review, the commis-
sioners accepted the bid from
All Trades Historical Restora -
tion in the amount of $11,777.
This is the second set of bids
received. The first bids,
opened in February, were re-
jected because three of the four
failed to include a plan for the
The bids received were:
Kim McMichael of
Cutler, $5,000. His proposal
includes options of providing
inexpensive office and retail
space, use as a private resi-
dence or storage.
Rick Fortman of
Defiance, $7,777. His propos-
al is to store his personal col-
lection of antiques and art, re-
store sheriffs residence and
convert the jail section into
consignment booths for an-
tique and art dealers.

Meadows Conference cham-
pionships. Three sectional
championships. Five winning
seasons. And lots of fond
Those are just some of the
things that have been a part of
Wayne Traces girls basketball
program over the last 13 sea-
sons under the direction of
head coach Greg Davis.
Davis announced his retire-
ment early this season and
made it official recently with
his resignation submitted to
the Wayne Trace school board.
Its a retirement that, while
he still enjoys the game and the
kids, it has also become time
for him to reset his priorities.
It was just a good time to
go, commented Davis. I feel
like there is some talent at the
junior varsity level and there
are some talented players
coming back at the varsity
level as well.
The biggest thing, accord-
ing to Davis, is just spending
time with his grandchildren.
This year, missing some of
my grandkids games became
harder and it got to the point
where I wasnt able to attend
them due to coaching more
frequently, added Davis. It
was frustrating to a point be-
cause I would tell them I
would be at their games and
then it didnt work out and that
was hard to explain to them.
The Lady Raiders have en-
joyed unparalleled success
under his direction.
Wayne Trace captured its
first Green Meadows
Conference championship in
school history in 2007-08 and
followed that up with three
consecutive titles after that.
The red, white and blue also
recorded consecutive sectional
championships, advancing to
the district title game in both
2008 and 2009, before falling
to conference foe Tinora each
We were able to make it to
the district finals there in back-
to-back years, but Tinora had a
pair of good teams and we
came up a little short, contin-
ued the Raider head coach.
Wayne Trace also advanced
to the district tournament in
2011, competing in a district
that included four of the top
ten ranked teams in Division
IV. The Raiders fell short to
Delphos Jefferson in that tour-
nament, a team that eventually
advanced to the state tourna-
In 2011, it was an unbe-
lievable district tournament
with four of the top 10 teams
in the state there, said Davis.
It was a district that any one
of the four teams was very ca-
pable of making a long tourna-
ment run and we came up
short to a team that eventually
played in Columbus.
Davis, who finishes with a
career record of 135-143 and a
winning percentage of .486,
also has enjoyed the opportu-
nity to coach several girls who
have gone on to play at the
collegiate level.
Probably one of the more
rewarding things has been the
fact that we have been able to
have so many girls advance to
the collegiate level and the op-
portunity to keep in touch with
them, Davis commented.
We have had years where
many of those girls have come
back and practiced with us at
times and just the way we
have been able to get together
and enjoy the opportunities to
talk about the memories and
enjoy that time.
Ive made a lot of friends in
coaching and just in all aspects
of the game, continued Davis.
Its been a great opportunity
and Ive enjoyed it. Ive had
the opportunity to work with
some quality people, both at
WT and at other schools in
competition, which have truly
been a joy to work with.
I am going to walk out of
there as a coach holding my
head up high, knowing that the
teams weve had have had a
part in improving and building
the Wayne Trace girls basket-
ball program, noted Davis.
We were able to put up four
league championship banners
and three sectional champi-
onship banners. Some of the
girls we have had the opportu-
nity to coach have been
tremendous athletes and they
put in a lot of time to enjoy the
successes they had.
Davis walks away from
Wayne Traces sidelines with a
final thought, courtesy of for-
mer Fairview head coach Dan
He told me after my first
year, remembers Davis, he
said, Gus, if you coach to win
each night at the varsity level,
then youve done the job they
hired you to do. If you
havent, then you havent
done the job. I feel like Ive
done the job they hired me to
do and I appreciate the oppor-
tunity that Ive had and wish
the program nothing but the
best in the future.

Currently, five new ER rooms have been
completed along with a U-shaped nurses station
that has a direct line of sight to all patient rooms.

be rendered and the meat will
be cooked from the bones in
the big black kettle outside.
We will also make our pon
hoss in one of the big black
kettles. I dont think we will
make liver pudding this year.
Joe is the only one that eats it
around here and I still have
some canned from other years.
It will be so good to have
sausage again. We have been
out of sausage in the freezer. I
still have some canned, but for
sausage gravy we like it fresh
or from the freezer.
Spring is almost here which
we will look forward to. I am
glad it stayed cold so far, as it
makes it easier to get the meat
done. It would have been nice
to get the beef and pork done
earlier this year, but money-
wise it was not possible.
Tonight we will attend the
8th grade portfolio presentation
which includes daughter Ver-
ena, 15 and niece Emma, 15.
The eighth graders are prepar-
ing a dinner for all of their fam-
ilies tonight.
Verena mentioned that some
of the things on the menu are
mashed potatoes, gravy, dress-
ing and turkey. This will be the
second night this week that we
did not have to prepare supper.
Tuesday evening we at-
tended family fun night at the
school. A lot of activities were
going on, but the highlight of
the night was the wildlife pres-
entation. The children could
see and touch insects from the
rainforest in Africa.
The scariest thing there as a
python snake. Lovina, age 8,
A nice sunny day in March,
although the thermometer
shows 25 this a.m. We have
all the meat from our beef ei-
ther in cans or in the freezer.
My husband, Joe, was home
several days last week. On
Thursday night and Friday, he
made over 400 hamburger pat-
ties to put in the freezer. We put
freezer paper between each
hamburger, so they will pull
apart easier. Now, they can go
from the freezer to the grill
without needing time to un-
thaw first.
I cooked the meat off from
the beef bones and made 28
quarts of vegetable soup. That
will be an easy meal on a busy
day. I made this soup thick
enough with vegetables and
meat, so I can add tomato juice
and it will make twice the
amount when I open a quart.
Kevin, age 7, told me he re-
ally loves that soup. One day
when he came home from
school, he asked me if he could
heat up some of that really
good soup in jars.
A year ago we put up solar
panels to run a freezer from the
sunlight with back-up batteries.
We are still glad we invested in
that. Since then we have not
paid anything for running the
All winter it has charged re-
ally well except for maybe one
or two days when the battery
light has shown low.
After a few days of having a
break from the beef, we will
dress two hogs tomorrow
night. Plans are to cut up the
pork on Saturday. The lard will
does not take after me as she
petted the snake while I went
as far away from it as possible.
We enjoyed pizza, chips, and
punch in the cafeteria furnished
by the school.
Monday we take daughter
Loretta, 12, to the childrens
hospital to have some heart
tests done. I have been taking
son Kevin, 7, to therapy twice
a week. As much as we would
like to deny the symptoms he
has also been diagnosed with
muscular dystrophy.
With Gods help we want to
accept this as his plan for us.
Prayers are greatly appreciated.
May God bless each of you

In My Opinion
Sitting on the board
I was amazed to find out how many groups and organiza-
tions there are in Paulding County and how many are ran by
a group of board members. In fact, there is a list of organiza-
tions in a public online report, which includes schools,
churches, hospitals, mental health facilities, senior centers,
health departments, nonprofit groups and many more entities
where decisions are made by a board.
Sometimes a board of directors will have as many as 12
members or as few as three. Some board members are
elected and get paid but the majority give of themselves and
are volunteers.
If you are sitting on any
type of a board, you must
take the position very seri-
ously and be familiar with
group policies.
An efficient board values
teamwork and will only be
effective by working to-
gether. The goal of any
group should be to achieve the organizations objectives by
utilizing board intelligence and expertise through teamwork.
Lack of teamwork on a board will lead to hurt feelings, frus-
tration, lack of accomplishment and even the failure of an or-
Nobody should not have to act as a referee on any board. If
disagreements arise, members should be objective and look
at the whole picture.
In my own personal experience, I have observed the same
people sitting on many different boards. This always makes
me wonder, Why are they involved in so many organiza-
tions and are they sitting there to help with decision making
or do they just want to say, I am on the board?
Sometimes a person will assume leadership of a board,
make every single decision and if there are lackadaisical
members who are simply there for a feather in their cap, it is
hard to tell what type of decisions will be made and ap-
True, there are leaders and followers in any group or or-
ganization, but an outstanding board will constantly keep
evaluating themselves try to improve. They will tend to seek
outside expertise and educate themselves to have the best
practices and behaviors.
There are some board members and directors who will
shoot down an idea simply because, it isnt theirs or they just
do not want to see a positive change. We hear a lot of, Oh,
that will not work, Thats not my job and even, Well, I
dont care, I am just biding my time.
I personally have covered meetings where there have been
board members sleeping, those who have big mouths and
never keep quiet, and those with big egos who try and run
everything. Needless to say, these are the kinds of meetings
in which nothing much ever gets accomplished and are ro-
botic in nature. A lot of board members leave meetings with-
out a clue of what took place.
There are numerous board meetings every day, each week
and every month. If you feel it is important to sit on a board
and you are passionate about it, step forward and let your
thoughts be known. Anyone can sit and be a talking head, but
it takes a willingness to listen, an open mind to believe and
hands to work. A board of trustees, directors, or volunteers
will only be effective if they work together as a team. To ac-
complish anything as a board or a group, there is no room for
I, there should only be We.

The passion of the
Christ in nature
As Easter nears, Im re-
minded of its parallels in na-
ture. Its not a far stretch to
try and apply the miracle of
Easter to the natural world
around us. After all, if you be-
lieve the way I do, God has
His hand in all of it.
Over the years, believers
have assigned religious leg-
ends to plants and several
have persisted to this day.
Im not a psychologist or a
philosopher, so I wont pre-
sume to know why human
beings do this, but its a com-
mon thread in nearly all civi-
lizations. Lets look at some
of them, as they relate to the
Christian celebration of
When you think of Easter
plants, what comes to mind?
Easter lilies are likely to be
the first thing you think of,
but this flower is one of the
newer traditions, compared to
most. Its white color signifies
the purity of God and the
trumpet shape is said to rep-
resent the proclamation of
Christs resurrection.
Though lilies are men-
tioned in several places in the
Bible, what we now know as
the Easter lily (Lilium longi-
florum) is native to the
Ryukyu Islands, south of
Japan. Cultivated later in
Bermuda and now in the
U.S., Oregon produces 95%
of the worlds Easter lily
bulbs for potted production.
Prior to it being grown in
falling tears of Jesus mother,
Mary; and the passion flower,
with each part of its bloom
correlating to some aspect of
the crucifixion.
Sitting in a sunny window
of my house right now is a
plant commonly known as
Crown of Thorns (Euphorbia
milii). Like the other plants
mentioned, this one is not na-
tive to the Middle East, yet it
gets its common name from
its extremely prickly stems
that are said to be like what
Christ wore on his head as he
hung on the cross.
The actual Crown of
Thorns is thought to have
been fashioned from the
branches of the jujube tree
(Ziziphus jujube), which has
an abundance of both straight
and curved thorns along its
branches. Valuable as both a
shade tree and for its edible
fruit, the jujube tree is also
known as Chinese date.
While its interesting to
note these plants that signify
the death of Jesus and the
miracle of his resurrection, as
a gardener I see miracles
every day.
Who plants a seed beneath
the sod, and waits to see, be-
lieves in God. (Unknown)

the U.S., the Easter lily was
marketed as a cut flower. In
the 1940s, a system of culti-
vation was developed that al-
lowed growers to manipulate
the time of blooming, and it
was during this time that the
lilies rose in popularity as a
potted Easter flower.
Its now the fourth largest
potted plant crop in the U.S.
(behind poinsettias, mums,
and azaleas), with the top
four states for growing them
(as potted plants) being

State funding still a concern
for Antwerp schools
ANTWERP The Antwerp School Board met
in regular session on Tuesday, March 19. Finan-
cial concerns, staff reports, and three resignations
were received during their session. The consent
to forward a resolution to the Ohio General As-
sembly and to Governor John Kasich rejecting
the passing of House Bill 59 was also given.
Superintendent Pat Ross spent several minutes
sharing what the potential outcome will be with
the passing of House Bill 59. Currently the state
funding received is $3,076,372 which is approx-
imately $5,000 per student. The Antwerp enroll-
ment is 611 students. The new proposal under
HB 59 would decrease the amount to
The new proposal would be 3 percent less per
student and would force us to operate on the
amounts we received in 2009, said Ross.
The board approved a resolution spelling out
their objection of providing private or parochial
school tuition vouchers based on family income
or class work performance that leads to a below-
average grade. The resolution expresses opposi-
tion to any legislation that seeks to transfer
public dollars to support private education.
In her report, Ross also shared information
about the upcoming waiver day and future bus
routes. Waiver day will be held on Wednesday,
March 27 and will focus on school safety and
training for lockdown situations. The training
will include school staff as well as local, county
and state police officials.
Preliminary bus routes for the 2013-14 school
year are being laid out and considered.
At this point we are simply laying out the po-
tential routes in order to come up with the best
plan for the coming school year, said Ross.
One final item was the change of meeting
time for June. It was agreed to move the June
school board meeting to Thursday, June 27.
The board approved the resignations of district
technology director Cathy Barnett, Hal Kemerer,
and head basketball coach Scott McMichael.
Barnett spent 20 years in the Antwerp school
system while Kemerer gave 31 years of service.
McMichael resigns after 13 successful years at
the helm.
Middle/high school principal Michael Bute
shared with the board several items of interest,
The addition of one additional AP class,
giving Antwerp a total of six.

the state to receive the School of Promise recog-
nition. The special award is given to schools that

Oakwood police chief to
take A.L.I.C.E. training
OAKWOOD Oakwood Police Chief
Mark Figert told village council that he
was working on getting training for the
A.L.I.C.E. Active Shooter possibility at
the councils regular meeting Monday,
March 25
A.L.I.C.E., which stands for Alert,
Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate, is
a flexible set of principles that may be
adapted to any violent situation. The goal
of this training is to begin mental prepara-
tion of recognizing, assessing, and re-
sponding to threats.
A.L.I.C.E. is being taught around the
country to law enforcement, college cam-
puses, K-12 schools, private business, and
other social organizations who realize they
need education on this topic.
Council unanimously approved an ex-
penditure of $395 for Figert to get the
A.L.I.C.E. training and $600 for equip-
ment, namely a bulletproof vest.
Chief Figert provided council with the
details for the grant that he had written a
few months ago for communication equip-

A Penny For
Your Thoughts....
By: Nancy Whitaker
One of the big treats at
Easter time is all the different
kinds of Easter candy. Some
of them have been around for
years and we never grow tired
of them.
When my own kids were
growing up, we used to wait
until they were asleep and
make up their Easter baskets
and hide them. Those were the
Actually, we hid them some-
place in the house and when
the kids got up on Easter morn-
ing, they would search for their
baskets of goodies.
I still remember some of our
favorite places to hide their
Easter baskets. One of the
places was inside the clothes
dryer. Once they discovered
that was one of the hiding
spots, they would look there
Other hiding places in-
cluded: cupboards, behind fur-
niture, under beds and
sometimes even outside in the
One day, many years ago, a
little four year old girl was not
getting her way and was throw-
ing a slight temper tantrum. It
was close to Easter and the lit-
tle girl knew that the Easter
bunny would come on Easter if
she was very good and be-
haved herself.
As she was crying, her
mama came up and said to her,
The Easter bunny is watching
The little girl was skeptical,
but through her tears said,
Where is he?
Lo and behold there was a
brown rabbit in the yard and
the little girl immediately
stopped crying. Although she
wasnt good every day of her
life, she made sure she behaved
at Easter time. I know, because
that little girl was me! And I
have always been in love with
However, being one that
loves not only candy, but all
sweets, I was surprised to find
out that Easter treats started
way back in the 1300s in Eu-
rope with the tradition of Hot
Cross Buns. Do you remember
the old tune, Hot Cross
Hot Cross Buns became the
traditional breakfast of Good
Friday and became a Christian
tradition as well. In the years
that followed, many customs,
traditions, superstitions, and
claims of healing and protec-
tion from evil were associated
with the buns. The popularity
of Hot Cross buns continued
and became the Marshmallow
Peeps of their time.
Easter is now the second
top-selling candy holiday, just
behind Halloween. Americans
spend an average $1.9 billion
on Easter candy every year.
The days are longer, the sun
is brighter, the colors are rich
and the candies are pastel. Its
springtime for many parts of
the world and to celebrate we
enter into the saccharin world
filled with Marshmallow
Peeps, Jelly Beans, and other
well packaged bits of sweet-
ness sure to bring about a
sugar-induced coma.
Of course, Americas fa-
vorite are those cute marshmal-
low peeps. This Easter an
estimated 700 million Marsh-
mallow Peeps will be con-
Did you know that there are
people who are Peep fanatics?
There are now websites for
Peeps and even an inventive
online movie called, Lord of
the Peeps?
I recently ran across a picture
of a cake decorated with
Bunny Peeps. The cake was a
regular cake with frosting, but
various colors of the rabbit
Peeps were stood up along the
outside of the round cake. The
top of the cake was decorated
with pastel M&Ms.
Another idea to try is Peep
Smores. What an idea! I am
thinking about trying both of
these treats for Easter.
What is your favorite kind of
Easter candy? Have you ever
made or tasted Hot Cross
buns? Have you ever seen The
Easter Bunny? Let me know
and Ill Give You a Penny for
Your Thoughts.

Soil testing is an excellent
measure of soil fertility. With
a representative soil sample
and an accurate soil test,
sound fertilizer recommenda-
tions can help gardeners and
growers improve plant qual-
ity and productivity.
Soil testing takes the guess-
work out of fertilization and
is extremely cost effective. It
not only eliminates the waste
of money spent on unneces-
sary fertilizers, but also elim-
inates over-usage of
fertilizers, hence protecting
the environment.
Soil fertility fluctuates
throughout the growing sea-
son each year. The quantity
and availability of mineral
nutrients are altered by the
addition of fertilizers, ma-
nure, compost, mulch and
lime or sulfur, in addition to
leaching. Furthermore, min-
eral nutrients are removed
from soils as a result of plant
growth and development, and
the harvesting of crops.
A soil test will determine
the current fertility status of
the soil and provide the nec-
essary information needed to
maintain optimum fertility
year after year.
Soil pH is one of the most
indicative measurements of a
soil test. The effect of soil pH
is great on the solubility of
minerals or nutrients. Before
a nutrient can be used by
plants, it must be dissolved in
the soil solution. Most miner-
als and nutrients are more sol-
uble or available in acid soils
than in neutral or slightly alka-
line soils.
Some plants grow well over
a wide range of soil pH, while
others grow best within a nar-
row pH range. Most turf
grasses, flowers, ornamental
shrubs, vegetables, and fruits
grow best in slightly acid soils,
which represent a pH of 6.1 to
6.9. Plants such as rhododen-
dron, azalea, mountain laurel,
and blueberries require a more
acidic soil to grow well. A soil
test is the only precise way to
determine whether the soil is
acidic, neutral or alkaline.
Soil samples can be taken in
the spring or fall for established
sites. For new sites, soil sam-
ples can be taken anytime
when the soil is workable. Au-
tumn can also be a good time
to take soil tests if one suspects
a soil pH problem and wants to
avoid the spring rush.
Fall soil testing will allow
you ample time to apply lime
to raise the soil pH. Sulfur
should be applied in the spring
if the soil pH needs to be low-
Gardeners, homeowners,
landscapers, growers, farmers,
and all other interested parties
should contact their local OSU
Extension office to find out the
scope of services in each
county, if they have questions
about soil testing.
For a list of OSU Extension
offices, their contact informa-
tion, and services that each of-
fice offers, visit the website

grow? Soil testing can tell you

Its spring time!
Blue and green do match
Look at that green against the
deep blue sky. Have you ever
seen anything more beautiful?
Dont tell me that blue and
green dont go together. If they
go together in Gods eyes, they
certain go together in my
eyes, he said.
During that time, I began to
realize that color was a real gift
that was very personalized.
Whether it was different col-
ored leaves, flowers, natural
scenes, or people, matching
color was one of Gods favorite
He did it in gardens, he did it
at fall, and he loved creating
different colored people so that
the human race would be a
beautiful blend of his total cre-
In the mixing of colors and
their expression in nature, it is
easy to see that God is such a
person of diversity, different-
colored flowers, human race,
plants, animals, anything out
Some of the fondest memo-
ries from childhood are cen-
tered around my father after he
purchased an Argus C-3 35mm
To make things even better,
I was given a Brownie
Starflash camera for my birth-
day that year. In my estimation,
we made the perfect team of
capturing the blended colors of
nature on film.
Dad always liked matching
colors in various natural set-
tings. We took a day trip to
Brown County to capture the
circus-like beauty of natures
quilt spread over the southern
Indiana hillsides.
That was the year that we
learned to capture winter
scenes, Christmas settings, and
the many colors of spring flow-
ers as they emerged once again
on the earth.
Perhaps some of the most
profound life lessons came the
next summer when our family
vacationed at one of my par-
ents favorite spots, Rocky
Mountain National Park near
At that time, there was a
myth that green and blue
werent matching colors in
clothing or design. But my dad
hotly disputed that.
Look, he would say, as we
lined up a photo of a beautiful
spruce tree against the back-
drop of a deep blue western
there is a testimony to Gods
love of diversity and grace.
Recently, I read a devotional
based on I Peter 4:10, As each
one has received a special gift,
employ it in serving one an-
other as good stewards of the
manifold grace of God.
The author emphasized what
I had read several places be-
fore; the word, manifold in this
text, actually means many-
colored. Gods grace is many
colored, geared to be adapted
to the need of the hour.
If life is blue, His grace is
blue; if it is, green, his grace is
green. In other words if we
need grace for illness, it is col-
ored just for that; if the need is
wisdom for a needed con-
frontation, His grace will be
colored for that moment.
It is the season of spring-
time (well, on the calendar,
anyway) and it will soon be a
time to take drives taking pic-
tures of brilliant spring flow-
ers. Each time we see a
colored flower these days, it
wouldnt be a bad idea to re-
member His many-colored
grace, how each period of life
is well-seasoned for a reason,
to reveal a color of God we
have never seen before, and
while looking at things through
the lens of a camera is exciting,
surely nothing is more exciting
than realizing how God must
see things through the eyes of
His creative being.
Payne Council agrees to tag
illegally parked vehicles
PAYNE The Payne Vil-
lage Council agreed to one
warning and then a ticket will
be awarded to owners of ille-
gally parked vehicles. Fire
Chief Jamie Mansfield has
placed in effect a hiring
freeze, the garbage contract
will be awarded in April, and
the spring clean up estimate
was determined at their meet-
ing held on Monday evening.
Council gave the go ahead
for Police Chief Rodney
Miller to begin handing out
warning tickets for vehicles
illegally parked or for junk
vehicles that have not been
moved. With consensus from
the council, Mayor Terry
Smith told the chief, Start
handing out warnings and fol-
low up with a ticket if they do
not comply.
With 25 fire personnel and
15 EMTs, Mansfield also an-
nounced a hiring freeze for
his department. In the mean-
time, the department will
continue to receive applica-
tions and resums for future
Mansfield informed the
council their request for
FEMA funds to purchase a
new ambulance was turned
Chief Mansfield reported
that following a response to a
call to Paulding, one of the
fire hoses was damaged and
needed to be replaced. Mans-
field said his department had
received total reimbursement
for the damage and a new
hose has been purchased.
EMS assistant coordinator
Joe Garmyn informed council
that Duane Price had passed
all the necessary tests and is
qualified to join the depart-
ment. The board unanimously
passed the motion to accept
Price a few months ago pend-
ing him passing the require-
ments. Price is now qualified
as a member of both the EMS
and fire department.
Council will begin receiv-
ing bids for the garbage con-
tract at the end of March with
the award being made at the
April 22 meeting.
The spring clean-up date
will be set at the next meeting
on April 8; however, council
did approve the estimated
cost from Eric Recycling for
$2,362 for the clean-up event.
In the event the U-post bar-
riers are damaged in the fu-
ture by semi trucks and other
oversized vehicles, council
agreed by consensus there
will be a $300 restitution to
be paid by the party causing
the damage.
A resolution was unani-
mously passed to realign the
permanent appropriations
from one account line item to
another within the fund to in-
clude the water, sewer, street
and fire departments.
In a brief ceremony prior to
the council meeting, Mayor
Smith honored Lorean Mc-
Collum for her 50 years of
service to the village as board
of public affairs clerk.
The next meeting is sched-
uled for 7 p.m. on Monday,
April 8.
Prior to Mondays Payne Village Council meeting, Mayor Terry
Smith presented a plaque to Lorean McCollum, clerk of the board
of public affairs, honoring her 50 years of service.

The Paulding Progress &
Weekly Reminder
QUESTION: Our son wont
do his homework! Hes
smart and capable; hed just
rather play or watch TV. I
dont want to see him fall be-
hind in school, so I have to
monitor him at every step.
What can I do?
JIM: Its hard to say for cer-
tain without knowing all the
details (such as his age), but
this sounds like it might be an
opportune time for what Dr.
Kevin Leman calls reality dis-
This method is less exhaust-
ing and more successful than
ranting, raving, blaming,
pleading, begging or threaten-
ing. It helps children learn to
think for themselves and to be-
come more responsible
through guidance and action-
oriented techniques.
Dr. Leman says, Action-ori-
ented discipline is based on the
reality that there are times when
you have to pull the rug out and
let the little buzzards tumble. I
mean disciplining your children
in such a way that he/she ac-
cepts responsibility and learns
accountability for his actions.
When it comes to your son
and his homework, wed sug-
gest that you stop monitoring
him at every step. Let him see
what happens when he turns in
an assignment late, or fails to
turn it in at all. He needs to dis-
cover that his actions, or in this
case, inactions, have conse-
quences. And he needs to un-
derstand that you will not
always bail him out when he
fails to take responsibility.
Your desire to see him not fall
behind in school is admirable,
but again, youre not doing him
any favors by making his home-
work your burden. A few
missed assignments will not
doom him for life. In fact, they
very well may be just the moti-
vation he needs to start doing
his homework.
QUESTION: Our daughter is
out of control with her lying.
It isnt just big things; she lies
about everything. We have
taken privileges away and dis-
ciplined her and nothing
seems to help. Why does she
do this? And is there some-
thing we can do to help her
understand the deceit behind
the lying?
LEON WIRTH, executive
director of Parenting and
Youth: Virtually every child lies
at some point, but some seem to
make an art out of it. Were
sorry for the stress this has
placed on your family.
First, its important to note
that preschool-age children do
not fully comprehend the differ-
ence between lies and the truth.
Parents with young kids need to
be sure they understand this dif-
ference before lowering the
It sounds like your daughter
is old enough to know what
shes doing, however. The ques-
tion you need to ask is, Why?
Is she lying to avoid unpleasant
consequences or to gain an ad-
vantage of some sort? Or is she
using lying as a means of get-
ting your attention? Dishonesty
is never justified, but sit down
with her and see if you can as-
certain what might be at the root
of her behavior. Make sure she
understands that its important
for her to always tell you the
truth, even when it hurts her to
do so.
You mentioned that taking
privileges away hasnt helped.
But maybe you just need to find
out whats important to her.
Theres no value in barring her
from the TV if shes not really
that invested in watching TV.
When determining conse-
quences for misbehavior, its
important to identify those
things that will truly motivate a
child to do better.
Finally, be aware of the ex-
ample youre setting in this re-
gard. The best way to teach
honesty is to be honest. If you
find yourself taking liberties
with the truth, youll have little
authority in preventing your
daughter from doing the same.

Lafarges Paulding plant earns
API well cement product license
CHICAGO Lafarge North
America announced March 21
that its Paulding cement plant
has been granted a license by
the American Petroleum Insti-
tute (API; to
monogram conforming well ce-
ment products manufactured at
the plant.
APIs Monogram Program
provides assurance through ro-
bust certification processes that
manufacturers of equipment
and materials meet the require-
ments for manufacturing qual-
ity. Such API programs have
provided a technical foundation
to the oil and gas industry since
With this announcement,
Lafarge reinforces its commit-
ment to serve the oil and gas in-
dustry in Ohio and beyond,
said John Stull, Lafarge U.S.
CEO. The announcement is
also important for the local
communities, as high quality
well cements contribute to the
responsible development of nat-
ural resources, which in turn
supports economic growth.
Cement products bearing the
API Monogram will be targeted
for use by customers in well ce-
menting applications. Such ap-
plications play a fundamental
role in oil and gas industry stan-
dards of well completion prac-
tices, which help protect the
environment and communities
around wells.
This latest API Monogram
further positions Lafarge as a
leading manufacturer and sup-
plier of quality materials to the
oil and gas industry. With the
Paulding announcement, La-
farge now has three plants in the
United States with a license
from API; the remaining two
production facilities are Joppa,
Ill. and Whitehall, Pa.
The Paulding facility, which
has been producing materials
for the construction industry
since 1956, will support rap-
idly growing demand for API
monogrammed products in
Ohio, Pennsylvania and West
Virginia. Lafarges extensive
network will continue to sup-
ply oil and gas markets
throughout North America.

Physician earns obesity
medicine certification
Ahmed, MD, Paulding
County Hospital, recently
passed the American Board
of Obesity Medicine
(ABOM) Certification Exam
for obesity medicine physi-
cians and became certified in
the subspecialty of obesity
Physicians certified in obe-
sity medicine are able to pos-
itively impact all systems of
the body by incorporating
weight management into tra-
ditional models of medical
practice. Specifically, this
subspecialty requires compe-
tency in and a thorough un-
derstanding of the treatment
of obesity and the genetic, bi-
ologic, environmental, social
and behavioral factors that
contribute to obesity.
Dr. Ahmed was among
only 191 physicians nation-
ally who successfully com-
pleted this years exam.
According to the Centers
for Disease Control and Pre-
vention, more than one-third
of U.S. adults and 17 percent
of U.S. children and adoles-
cents are obese. Obesity-re-
lated conditions include heart
disease, stroke, type 2 dia-
betes and certain types of
cancer. In 2008, medical costs
associated with obesity were
estimated at $147 billion.
Supervision from a health
care provider is necessary to
detect and treat weight-re-
lated medical conditions. A
health care program super-
vised by a physician who is
certified in obesity medicine
offers a comprehensive and
effective approach to maxi-
mizing overall health and re-
versing obesity-related
In our own county, the
prevalence of adult obesity is
34 percent, according to the
Paulding County Health As-
sessment, a health survey per-
formed in 2011, said Dr.
Ahmed. I am interested in
being part of the solution to
this medical epidemic by lo-
cally helping patients affected
by obesity who seek access to
safe evidence-based medical
treatment options.
Patients and their health
care providers need a variety
of options for obesity treat-
ments, since no single treat-
ment approach will work for
every individual. The Ameri-
can Society of Bariatric
Physicians provides guidance
to its members through a set
of obesity medicine guide-
lines, which outline four
medical weight-loss methods:
dietary modification, exercise
prescription, behavior modi-
fication and, when appropri-
ate, medication.
Dr. Ahmed has been a
board-certified family prac-
tice physician at Paulding
County Hospital since 2007.
His practice has recently relo-
cated to the Paulding Medical
Center, which is located in a
separate building at the west
end of the hospital campus.
He decided to become board
certified in obesity medicine
to help his patients and other
interested patients in dealing
with obesity and the health
problems that are related to

County residents benefit from
first Timber Road II payment
Feature Writer
Much of the Paulding County population is
going to benefit in one way or another from
the first payment to the county from the Ben-
ton Township EDP Renewable Timber Road
II Wind Farm. The first payment, which re-
flects the first half of 2012, is $449,212.50 and
is the result of the entire county having entered
into an Alternative Energy Zone agreement.
When the wind energy companies first pre-
pared to develop in our county, we were at a
loss for a tax rate that was comparable to sur-
rounding states, said County Commissioner
Tony Zartman. Of course, they wanted to
enter into an agreement with us concerning an
enterprise zone (tax abatement).
We had a lot of discussion about what
would be a fair tax abatement for them. Our
main concern was the schools, continued
Zartman. We didnt want to do anything that
would reduce their state funding.
Zartman said that the Paulding County com-
missioners worked with state legislators to de-
velop Senate Bill 232 in order to get the
maximum rate per megawatt to be established.
This bill stated that any payment would be
considered new revenue and would not affect
state charges to the schools.
Our goal was not to help the state but to help
ourselves locally, said Zartman.
Five days after Governor Ted Strickland
signed that bill into law, the board of commis-
sioners created an alternative countywide energy
zone. It was the first such zone enacted in the
The bill authorized local officials not to
charge wind companies more than $9,000 per
nameplate megawatt, Zartman said.
The State wanted this to be as large of an im-
pact on the state as could be, said Zartman.
They wanted to use Ohio workers. The more
people the companies had working from Ohio,
the smaller amount the PILOT payment would
The percentage of Ohio workers connected
with this project during construction determined
the size of their payment. Because of the alter-
native energy zone, the wind company came
must pay a $7,000 pilot payment per name plate
and a $2,000 service payment.
As a result, said commissioners, some of the
benefitting amounts netted by county agencies
include $30,858.43 for the general fund;
$4,840.53 for county health; $26,017.53 for
Board of DD; $3,025.34 for the Paulding County
Senior Center; $3,085.85 for the county hospital
bond; $13,129.95 for the library; $6,050.67 for
Tri-County Mental Health; $33,278.69 for Ben-
ton Township, $28,861.71 for Vantage Voca-
tional; $191,503.76 for Wayne Trace for a total
of $340,652.81, based on millage rate.

Dear Friends of the Paulding Exempted
Village Schools,
I am pleased to report that the Paulding
Board of Education has selected a new super-
intendent to lead the Paulding School District
for the 2013 2014 school year. Recently
the Board hired Mr. William Hanak as
Superintendent of Schools effective August
1, 2013. Mr. Hanak will transition into his
new position over the summer and will be
here full time beginning in August. Mr.
Hanak is currently the High School Principal
at Wauseon High School and will finish out
this school year in that position. Please join
me in welcoming him to the Paulding com-
The Ohio Department of Education has now
approved an additional waiver day for Pauld-
ing Schools on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 to
be used for safety planning in all build-
ings. All Paulding staff and administrators
will be working on updating their building
safety plans that day with the help of local
law enforcement. All students are excused
for the day.
Family financial situations may change
throughout the school year. Please be aware
that students may apply for Free or Reduced
lunches at any time during the school year. I
encourage families who have a change in
their income to apply or re-apply for these
benefits by picking up an application in any
of our building offices, calling the building
secretary to have an application mailed to
your home, or downloading the form from
our website under Parent Links. Also, please
take advantage of your online account for
checking lunch account balances. If you do
not know how to access this account, contact
our office at 419-399-4656, ext. 1512.
We are very proud of the academic and ex-
tracurricular achievements of our students,
and the many outstanding staff members who
work with these students on a daily basis. As
always, I invite you to become an active part
of our school district and to get involved in
the lives of our young people by attending as
many of the student activities as your sched-
ule allows. Please feel free to visit me at my
office in the Paulding Administration office,
call me at 419-399-4656 or e-mail me at at your con-
venience if you have any questions about our
school district or anything in this community

Paulding Elementary-Stephanie Tear
Happy Spring! The 2012-2013 school year
is quickly coming to an end, but we still have
so much to accomplish this final nine weeks.
I am very proud of the students here at
Paulding Elementary! We have a wonderful
group of children who have worked hard at
their academics and on developing their
character traits. I appreciate all you parents
who continue to encourage these positive
attitudes. We need to finish the year strong,
so we need continued parental support.
We held our Kindergarten Round Up March
26 and had a beautiful group of future Kin-
dergarteners come through. If you were una-
ble to attend, we missed you and need you to
please contact the school office for a screen-
ing appointment. Kindergarten screening is
scheduled for April 17 and April 18. If you
know of any child entering Kindergarten
please inform them to contact Paulding Ele-
mentary at 419-399-4656. The office secre-
tary will schedule a time for you. This
screening is important for your child so we
can prepare to serve them when they come to
school next year.
The Ohio Achievement Assessments are the
beginning of your childs testing career.
They are very important and will take place
April 25, April 30 and May 2. Teachers have
been working with your children to ensure
they have the skills needed to be successful.
Please make sure your children have excel-
lent attendance throughout the end of the
school year. Keeping a routine where home-
work is completed, consistent sleep hours are
set, and a healthy breakfast is provided is
essential to your childs success. Drinking
plenty of water is great for the brain! Thank
you for encouraging your children to put
forth their best effort.
Upcoming dates: Spring Break is March 29

through April 2
, Waiver Day is April 3
PAWS incentive is April 5
, Battle of the
Books is April 11
, Kindergarten Screening
is April 17
and 18
, and the last day of
After School Program is April 18

enjoy the changing of the seasons to Spring,
we appreciate you staying committed to our
childrens success.

Oakwood Elementary-Jennifer Manz
Hello from Oakwood Elementary on a sunny,
but cold and windy, day! It looks like winter
is determined to stay for all of its allotted
days. While it seems like just yesterday I
was writing my beginning of the year article,
it is already time for me to put together com-
ments about the final quarter of the 2012-
2013 school year. It reminds me of Kenny
Chesneys song, Dont Blink!
For grades 2-6, the month of April is a month
full of review as we make our final prepara-
tions for the Ohio Achievement Assessments
and the Terra Nova Assessments which will
be given on April 25 and 30 and May 1 and
2. As you may know, all students in grades 3
-6 in the State of Ohio take a reading and
math assessment; 5
graders also take a sci-
ence assessment. Terra Nova Assessments
will be given to students in grades 2-6. If
you have not already done so, please mark
the weeks of April 22-26 and April 29-May 3
on your calendar. It will be very important
for your child to be at school, to have plenty
of sleep, to eat a good breakfast, and to
receive tons of your support and encourage-
ment during the State Testing week. Please
encourage your children to continue to give
their very best effort through the final quarter
of the school year, finishing on a strong, pos-
itive note.
April 19
is the date of Oakwood Elemen-
tarys 2013-2014 Kindergarten Screening. If
you have, or know a child living in the
Oakwood school area who will be five before
August 1, 2013, please call and set up a
screening and registration appointment (419-
594-3346). We look forward to meeting
many new students on April 19
We have a very special evening coming up
on Thursday, April 11! We invite all neigh-
bors, friends, family and supporters of
Oakwood Elementary to join us for
Learning Is An Art from 6:30 to 8:00.
This special evening is an opportunity for us
to showcase some of the really wonderful
things going on in our building. Please plan
to come tour Oakwood Elementary and enjoy
special events taking place SMARTBoard
lessons, a science fair, project displays, edu-
cational games, live musical performances,
and much more. We hope you will be able to
join us as we share our students successes!
The Oakwood Elementary PTO is hosting
two events in April, and everyone is wel-
come. Their annual PTO Carnival is sched-
uled for Saturday, April 6
, from 4:30 to
7:00 there will be many games for children
of all ages to enjoy, a number of raffle items
which will peak the interest of adults, and
plenty of food. The second event they are
organizing is a Mom-to-Mom sale on Satur-
day, April 20
, from 9:00 to 1:00. For more
details about this event, please give us a call.
**We really appreciate the special extra
things our PTO provides for our students
and staff. They are the best!

Middle School-David Stallkamp
Our school sent many students to the District
Science Day at Ohio Northern University on
Saturday, March 23rd. Congratulations to all
that participated. I will get the top finishers
posted in the next newsletter.
Our spring sports are up and running. We
have many, many kids out for track, baseball,
and softball. THANK YOU to all that have
chosen to become involved in all extra-cur-
ricular activities. Please come out and sup-
port our kids in action. Look for schedules
on the school website.
The school year is winding down VERY
FAST. Please encourage your child to con-
tinue performing well in school. It doesnt
take many failing grades to pull down a
years worth of hard work. We all have
spring fever, but we must also accept the
responsibilities that we all have, to do our job
Finally, I cannot say enough about needing
your help and support for the upcoming
State of Ohio Achievement Assessment
tests. Kids always think these tests are not
important and dont mean anything. This is
just not true. We get a lot of important infor-
mation from these tests and they stay in the
students permanent file for life. PLEASE
stress to your child just how important it is
that they give these tests their best effort.
The testing schedule is as follows:
6th-8th grade READING April 25
6th-8th grade MATH April 30
grade SCIENCE May 2
and 7
grade SCIENCE Terra Nova
May 2
grade SOCIAL STUDIES Terra Nova
May 1
grade READING Terra Nova April 26
grade MATH Terra Nova May 3
Please make sure to try and schedule
appointments, vacations, etc. away from
these dates so that your child is here to take
the test on the scheduled date. Also, please
see that they get a good nights sleep and a
good breakfast on these dates. This will help
the kids perform at their utmost potential.
Monday, May 13,

2013, will be a Day Off
Of School for any student that passed all
areas on the 2012 Ohio Achievement Tests.
Permission forms will be coming home for
those students eligible to receive this incen-
tive reward. School will operate as normal
that day for those not eligible for this reward.
There are two 8
grade class trips coming up.
The first will be for any 8
grader that wish-
es to go to Springfield, Illinois. That trip will
be May 8 through 10, 2013, and will be at
their own expense. The second trip is open
to all 8
graders wishing to go to Cedar
Point. This trip is scheduled for Tuesday,
June 4
, 2013. Cost per student will be $25.
May 16
will be our annual Awards Day
ceremony in the HS gym beginning at 12:00
noon. Invitations will be sent out to the par-
ents of those students receiving an award that
Grade Graduation is scheduled for May
21, 2013, at 1:00 PM in the high school gym.

Again, I thank you for your continued sup-
port of Paulding Middle School. Please do
not hesitate to contact me at the school if I
can be of any further assistance.

High School-Todd Harmon
Once again I would like to thank all the
teachers, aides, parents, and students for do-
ing their part in completing another year of
State testing. The process went very smooth-
ly and the attendance each day was great. I
am confident the students' performance will
show positive results and get students closer
to graduating.
Thanks to all the students and staff that par-
ticipated in our winter extra-curricular activi-
ties. Your efforts and commitments will
continue to help improve our programs.
A big thank you and congratulations to Beth
Kelly and Sandy Dobbelaere for a terrific job
working with the students who put on the
Monty Python musical Spamalot. Many
hours of practice go into making a perfor-
mance like this. The students did a wonder-
ful job!
There is still time to purchase tickets to the
Band Booster's "Music of the Night" to be
held on April 13 at 6:30 p.m. This is an
evening of live music performed by our
band members, while being served a deli-
cious meal. A silent auction will be held
throughout the evening also, which is intend-
ed to raise funds for the band program.
The FFA banquet will be April 20th in the
Auditeria. This is a very well produced pro-
gram that recognizes students involved in the
FFA and their achievements through the
As we move closer to May and time for
Prom (May 4th), a reminder goes out to stu-
dents and parents about school fees. Stu-
dents will not be allowed to participate in
prom activities if all fees are not paid by May
2nd. Seniors who do not have all fees paid
will not be permitted to participate in the
graduation ceremony or receive their diplo-
ma. We want to see students have a positive
end of the school year, so please help in the
fee paying process. As Spring and good
weather come around the corner this last nine
weeks, it is important to finish the school
year strong as grades can make students
ineligible for fall sports and extra-curricular
activities if they are not passing. Please do
not hesitate to call the high school office if
you have any questions.

Many scholarships will be available during
the month of April. Students should check
the school website for more infor-
mation, including deadlines. The deadline to
register for the June 8th ACT is Friday May
3rd. Senior Awards program is May 14th at

Stallbaum at 419-399-9268. The Athletic
Boosters appreciate all your support in help-
ing our Panther Athletes. GO PANTHERS!!

diteria, with doors opening at 6:30 with the

ment will be provided by the High School

Contact any band member or Mr. Clark for
tickets or information.

The school district has received federal
IDEA-B funds for special education ser-
vices. Public comment is encouraged and

tablished in 1974 as a way to honor the ser-
vice of people who volunteer. Paulding Ex-

opportunity to express our appreciation to
everyone who gives of their time and talents
to make a big difference in our schools.

Senior Spotlight
For Colin Krick, adversity has given him something to prove
All athletes, whether it is in
high school, college or at the
professional level, deal with
winning or losing every time
they take to the field, court or
track. Its all part of the game
and for Antwerp senior Colin
Krick he has experienced win-
ning and losing as an athlete
but more importantly he has
dealt with it in life.
As an eighth grader, when
life should be about having
friends, playing sports at the
park, or thinking about going to
high school, Colin was up
against the worst news a kid his
age could ever receive. You
see, Colin along with the rest of
his family heard the word can-
cer a word no family wants to
Willing to talk about those
dreadful days back in 2009,
Colin spoke in a mature tone
with the facts. My dad
[David] was sick with cancer
and it hit him pretty fast. He
didnt live long after we re-
ceived the word. It wasnt long
until hospice was called in and
my dad lived about three
And now the senior, who
will soon leave the halls of
Antwerp High School, has
spent these last four years hon-
oring his dad. Its been hard.
It really stinks. But the best
way to honor his memory is to
go out and do the best you can
and thats what Ive tried to
do, said Colin.
Not knowing at the time
the impact it would have on
his life, Colin was invited to
participate in cross country
while in the seventh grade.
I was going to play foot-
ball but a friend of mine,
Isaac Reinhart, influenced me
to try cross country. That was
really hard for me because at
that time I was 5-foot-3 and
overweight at about 175
pounds, Colin said.
However, it was the influ-
ence of a friend that encour-
aged Colin to hang in there
and pursue long distance run-
ning and today he is a
changed man. As a result of
the hard work and discipline,
Colin, who will enter his final
track and field season as an
Archer, is 6-foot-2 and
weighs about 145.
My dad was the most in-
fluential person in my life. He
would be so proud of me now
that Im skinny.
As a cross country runner
in the fall and a distance run-
ner in the spring, Colin man-
aged to sandwich between
those two events a varsity
season on the boys basket-
ball team.
That was my first experi-
ence as a varsity player and
although I didnt get to play
much, it was a great experi-
ence. I tried to play hard and

track. He has had opportunity
to become very familiar with
the campus and their sports
program because his older
brother, Hayden, a senior at
DC, also runs cross country
and track. In fact, the two
brothers run the same events.
Colin has enjoyed his four
years at AHS. Although he is
looking forward to college,
he will certainly miss the
teachers who have been a
huge part of his life. Its such
a great school and the teach-
ers are willing to help you
100 percent. They really care
about you and they want you
to succeed. Teacher and track
coach Cord Ehrhart has been
like a father to me.
In a one-parent household,
the characteristic of responsi-
bility Colin has developed
has come from his mother,
Michelle, who works in
Hicksville but is very active
and involved in Colin and
Haydens sports careers.
Shes great. She makes it to
everything she possibly can
and when she cant she is al-
ways quick to apologize.
Colin plans to double
major in psychology and
criminal justice and would
someday like to go into the
federal law enforcement field
and eventually become a
United States marshal. I feel
like I have matured for my
age and when it comes to
problems I usually can solve
them and handle myself in a
very positive way. Im look-
ing forward to college and my
future in the field I have cho-
sen, the polite senior said.
Interviewing Colin was an
exceptional opportunity for
this writer. I was impressed
with his ability to convey his
feelings with a positive out-
look while appreciating his
past. The disappointments
and hardships he has endured
have enabled him to become
a young man who will suc-
ceed in whatever he seeks to
do. Whether its on the track
at Antwerp, at Defiance Col-
lege, or as a U.S. marshal,
Colin will do his best know-
ing it would make his dad
