SEVEN STATE General Excellence First Place Awards

106th Year - No. 19

Archbold Elevator Pig Operations Sold The sale of the three remaining entities of Archbold Elevator has been approved. Gerald Kowalski, a Toledo attorney acting as receiver for the Elevator and its related businesses, said James Barber, Fulton County Common Pleas Court judge, signed an order authorizing the sale, Monday, Nov. 28. The three properties are the last of the “Archbold Entities” involved in the receivership of Archbold Elevator. Troubles for the elevator and its owner, William Fricke, began when the

Ohio Department of Agriculture suspended the elevator grain handling license on April 11. The following day, Farmers & Merchants State Bank filed a $4.9 million lawsuit against Archbold Elevator, Fricke and other associated businesses. The lawsuit forced the company into receivership. The three remaining entities to be sold were all in the businesses of raising and selling pigs. Fricke attempted to buy back the three entities us-

ing non-traditional financing through a Detroit firm, but after a hearing, Barber disqualified his bids. Sold Sold were: •Henry Pig, a sow operation that raised pigs from birth to the point they were weaned from the sow. The sale included animals, property and other assets at 1678 Co. Rd. K, rural Napoleon, in Henry County. There were two original bids: Mark and Stephanie (Continued on page 12)

Repairs Start At Pettisville School Work to repair problems at the new Pettisville School is underway or is scheduled for completion, said Steve Switzer, school district superintendent. Work started Monday to replace the lights in the new gymnasium. There have been complaints that the original fixtures did not provide enough light for sporting events. Switzer said the original fixtures will be replaced by fixtures holding eight T-5

type fluorescent tubes. Four fixtures, which include security lights, have not been delivered. The curtain that divides the gym was to be used during the replacement. Physical education was to take place in half of the gym, while workers changed the lights on the other side. There were also complaints of sound traveling between classrooms. Switzer said the contractor installed a second level of

ceiling tile in four classrooms as a test, which proved successful. The second level of tiles will be installed in remaining classrooms over Christmas break, Switzer said. Walking Through? Contrary to rumor, Pettisville students are not walking through the under-construction atrium between the new school building and the 1994 gym-library-study (Continued on page 12)

Pettisville 27th, Archbold 94th In New State School Rankings Out of more than 900 school districts, charter and other types of schools, Pettisville had the 27th-highest performance index score in 2011. Archbold was 95th. Pettisville is in the top 3% of schools across Ohio, and Archbold in the top 10%. The rankings are part of a new system based on the performance index scores from Ohio Department of Education school report cards. Speaking to the Archbold Area School Board during its Wednesday, Nov. 16, meeting, David Deskins, district superintendent, told board members the requirement for the new ranking system was included in the last state budget bill. The requirement directs the Ohio Department of Education to prepare statewide rankings, based on perfor-

mance index scores. Performance index scores combine individual student results on all subjects in grades 3 through 8 that are tested on Ohio Achievement Assessments, and on 10th grade results from the Ohio Graduation Test. This year’s rankings are considered by the ODE to be a draft version. The first official ranking list will be released in September 2012. Scores The performance index scores range from 0 to 120. Pettisville’s PI score in 2011 was 107.9093; Archbold’s was 104.5514. The school with the highest PI score was a charter school startup, the Constellation Schools Outreach Academy for Students with Disabilities, in Cleveland. Its PI score was 115.9375.

The lowest PI score was the W.C. Cupe College Preparatory School in Columbus. The score was 35.4867, which ranked the school 936th. Several schools were not included in the rankings. Most are Joint Vocational School Districts. Others had no students tested, or less than 10 students tested. Cost Per Pupil The rankings include the per-pupil cost of instruction. Pettisville’s per-pupil cost was $9,565, fifth-highest among the seven Fulton County school districts. Steve Switzer, Pettisville Local School District superintendent, said of the 30 top-ranked school districts across Ohio, Pettisville ranked eighth in per-pupil spending. (Continued on page 12) There were 48 entries in the Archbold Parade of Lights, including floats, decorated vehicles, lighted tractors, and horse-drawn carriages. There was a good crowd watching the parade,

Parade Of Lights Draws Crowd Julie Brink, director of the Archbold Area Chamber of Commerce, said there were 48 entries in the 2011 Parade of Lights, Friday night, Nov. 25. That’s down four from last year. Previously, the lowest number was 50. Brink had reports that there was a nice crowd both in the downtown historic district and other parts of the parade route. Weather was relatively balmy compared to 22 degrees with a biting wind last

year. Friday's high temperature was 64 degrees. “We were very, very fortunate,” she said. Street Lights One difference from previous years was the downtown street lights remained on. The lights were left on because of liability concerns. “There were complaints last year that people couldn’t see the curbs,” and could trip over them, she said. Brink said the parade started at a fast pace, but

then slowed down with some gaps. “People walking alongside the floats had trouble keeping up.”

Santa Visit Brink said Santa’s visit to Ruihley Park Pavilion was popular. A big crowd was on hand. There was a steady stream of traffic through the Festival of Lights in Ruihley Park. “It was a good kickoff to the holidays,” she said.

Pettisville School Board Commits To Income Tax Hike

Roads Flooding The Archbold Wastewater Treatment Plant recorded 5.6 inches of rainfall from Nov. 19 through Tuesday morning, Nov. 29, and it was still raining. That’s played havoc with some Fulton County roads, as this photo, taken on Co. Rd. 24 south of Short-Buehrer Road illustrates. As of 2 pm, Tuesday, several county roads were closed, including Co. Rd. J between Co. Rds. 22 and 23, and Co. Rd. J between Co. Rd. 23 and St. Rt. 66. There also were several reports of homeowners fighting water in basements with sump pumps.–photo by Mary Huber

October Unemployment 8.7% In Fulton County Fulton County had an unemployment rate of 8.7% during October, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services estimated. It’s the third straight month the county unemployment rate has been under 9%. The current trend started in August, when unemployment fell from July’s 10.5% to 8.6%. ODJFS revised the Fulton County September rate, reducing it from the originally announced rate of 8.3% to 8.2%. The October rate is an increase of a half (.5%). For the second straight month, Fulton County unemployment was the lowest in the four counties of Fulton, Defiance, Henry, Williams. Defiance and Henry counties had identical 8.8% rates. Williams County was 10%, the only one of the four counties in double digits. ODJFS estimated that during October, there were 21,600 people in the county workforce. There were 19,700 employed and 1,900 unemployed and seeking work.

State, Nation All county unemployment data is not seasonally adjusted. Comparable rates for Ohio as a whole, and the nation, were 8.4% and 8.5%, respectively. When seasonal adjustments are applied, the unemployment rate for both Ohio and the United States is 9%. ODJFS estimated that during October, there were about 5.86 million people in the state labor force. Almost 5.37 million were working. Other Counties The number of workers Out of 88 Ohio counties, out of a job and seeking emFulton County was in a six- ployment was estimated at way tie with Seneca, Fayette, 491,300. Hamilton, Butler, and Green counties for the 49th-highest unemployment rate. The lowest unemployment was in Geauga County, in Northeast Ohio, at 5.4%. The highest unemployment, 15%, was Pike County in south-central Ohio, near the Ohio River.

The Pettisville School Board has committed to placing an additional 1% income tax before voters; it’s just a question of when. In a special meeting, Monday, Nov. 28, the board passed a resolution of intent to seek an additional 1% income tax for operating expenses. The resolution specifies the tax would be on a continuing basis rather than for a limited term. Voters in the Pettisville School District could face the income tax levy question in March or June. If the State of Ohio goes through with the plan to hold two primary elections in 2012, the school board will postpone putting the income tax levy on the ballot until the June primary. The two-primary plan is made necessary as Democrats and Republicans in the Ohio legislature wrangle over the issue of drawing new districts for the Ohio members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Steve Switzer, district superintendent, said there is still a small chance the state could settle the redistricting issue, making the two primaries unnecessary, but the window to do so is tiny. Kandice Lemley, director of the Fulton County Board of Elections, said state officials were scheduled to discuss the redistricting and two-primary issues today, Wednesday. State officials would need to cancel the June primary by Dec. 7 to allow candidates the required time to file paperwork needed to run for office in March rather than June. While Switzer said that seems unlikely, the Pettisville board scheduled a special meeting for Dec. 7 in case it needs to vote to place the tax levy on the March ballot rather than waiting until June. All board members expressed a preference to wait until the June ballot to allow more time to gather information and educate voters about the district’s need. Income Vs. Property The income tax was chosen over an additional property tax levy because taxpayers in the district are still paying on the 7.85-mill levy that was passed to provide the local share needed to build the new school facility that opened this fall.

No Wage, Income Growth The five-year projection is conservative in projection of revenues, showing no growth in the income tax collection for the district and predicting wages and income for area residents will be flat for the next five years. When predicting the expenses, the five-year plan calls for an average of 2.7% annual growth over the five years. “If we wait until June to put the levy on the ballot, that will give us a full year in the new building,” said King. “We will have more information about our operating costs, and our budget will be clearer.” The special meeting scheduled for Dec. 7 will be canceled if the legislature does not resolve the differences that will require the June primary to be held. The board would then meet next for its regular December meeting scheduled for Dec. 12, 7 p.m., in the conference room of the new school.–D.J. Neuenschwander

The need for the levy is based on the five-year financial projection for the district, which shows the district operating in the red this fiscal year. The projection estimates the district’s cash balance will run out during Fiscal Year 2015. The current income tax is 1%. It is projected to yield $415,000 this year. The additional tax would mean Pettisville would be one of only a few districts in the state to have a 2% income tax. The board considered seeking a 3/4% income tax, but looking at the projection, it concluded that would not meet the district’s need. Even if the new levy passes, the district will still need to “be diligent and find ways to stretch our funds,” said John King, board president. Board members questioned the need for more operating money. They concluded that it was primarily due to decreases in state funding and the elimination of taxes on business.

Local Man Indicted 11-Day Jail Sentence For Role In Arrest Of Michigan Fugitive

Archbold Rescue workers attend to one of the victims of a Tuesday, Nov. 22 crash at the intersection of St. Rt. 2 and Co. Rd. 22. The mishap involved a car, semi, and pickup truck. Two persons were treated and released from the Fulton County Health Center.–photo by David Pugh

Stryker Woman Struck By Car; Semi In Nov. 22 Three-Vehicle Crash Jennifer E. Perez, 26, rural Stryker, was listed in fair condition at the University of Toledo Medical Center on Monday, Nov. 28, after she was struck by a car. The Ohio State Highway Patrol report states Perez was walking southwest on Williams County Rd. G-40 near Co. Rd. 21-N about 4:40 pm, Wednesday, Nov. 23, when she was struck by a car, also traveling southwest, driven by Russell A. Kelley, 49, rural Archbold. Perez was flown via helicopter ambulance from the accident scene to UTMC. The OSHP report states a citation was not issued to Kelley because his view was partially obstructed by the setting sun. Lois Gombash, 78, and Eugene Gombash, 84, rural Swanton, were taken to the Fulton County Health Center by Archbold Rescue

after their car collided with a semi about 2:41 pm, Tuesday, Nov. 22. The OSHP report on that crash states Douglas Brown, 58, Welland, Canada, was driving the semi south on Co. Rd. 22 as Lois Gombash was driving a car east on St. Rt. 2, with Eugene riding in the front passenger seat. The report states the semi failed to yield at the stop sign, driving into the path of the Gombash auto. The two vehicles collided, forcing the semi into a pickup truck driven by Richard Merillat, Sr., 59, West Unity. The Merillat pickup was stopped at the St. Rt. 2 intersection, in the northbound lane of Co. Rd. 22. Lois and Eugene Gombash were treated and released at FCHC. Brown and Merillat were uninjured. Brown was cited for failure to yield from a stop sign.

Police Respond To Two Fights At Bowling Center Archbold Police were called to two reports of fights at Nu-Arch Lanes last week. The first occurred about 1:10 am, Sunday, Nov. 20, when officers were called on a report of several people fighting. Officers said in their report when they arrived, the actual fight had broken up, “but there were still several people yelling at each other in the parking lot.” Two women were transported to Fulton County Health Center by Archbold Rescue for treatment of minor injuries. Officers said in the report that witness statements were taken from all parties involved. The case remains under investigation. The second incident occurred about 9 pm, Saturday, Nov. 26, when officers were dispatched to the bowling center on a report of a fight between two men. Officers encountered two men, Joshua D. Liechty, 30, rural Archbold, and Pablo Perez, 34, Archbold. The pair were issued sum-

monses to appear on charges of disorderly conduct. Liechty was transported to FCHC by Archbold Rescue for treatment of facial bruising.

Police Looking Into Possible Equipment Theft Archbold police officers are looking into the possible theft of $11,000 in equipment from Sauder Village. A representative of Sauder Village told police, village officials offered to place two industrial air conditioners, one valued at $3,000, the second at $4,500, for resale with an unidentified Okolona company. Also included was an industrial transformer, valued at $3,500. The Sauder Village official told police the company purportedly sold the equipment, but Sauder Village has not received payment.

Ralph J. Rupp, 30, Archbold, will spend 11 days at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio after being sentenced on a charge of attempted domestic violence. In a press release, Scott A. Haselman, Fulton County prosecuting attorney, said Rupp was sentenced Tuesday, Nov. 22, after he entered a guilty plea. Rupp was indicted by a Fulton County grand jury on Sept. 19. Documents charging him with the crime state on Sept. 2, he attempted to cause physical harm to a family or household member. They also noted Rupp has a previous conviction for domestic violence, elevating any subsequent domestic violence cases to felony status. In addition to serving 11 days at CCNO, Rupp was placed on community control for two years, and was ordered to pay the cost of prosecution and attorney fees. As part of his sentence, he was ordered not to consume or possess alcohol, not to possess illegal drugs, and stay out of bars or taverns. He was ordered to comply with alcohol treatment. He also was ordered to obtain his general education

Travis G. Beiswenger, 20, 400 Stamm Street, Apartment No. 2, has been indicted on a single count of obstructing justice in connection with the Oct. 28 arrest of James P. Nation. The Fulton County Grand Jury handed down the indictment, Monday, Nov. 21. Nation, 19, no address available, was a suspect in an Adrian, Mich., home invasion robbery. Acting on a tip, police went to Beiswenger’s apartment about 1 am. When Beiswenger answered the door, he denied Nation was in the apartment. However, police officers said they could smell the odor of marijuana coming from the apartment, and advised Beiswenger they were going to enter. When they did, they discovered Nation, along with a 9mm semi-automatic handgun, body armor, and what may have been a hand grenade. The indictment against Beiswenger states he “allegedly obstructed justice by communicating false information to another.” Nine other persons were indicted by the grand jury:

•Nathan Jewell, 23, Delta; sentenced Nov. 14 after previously pleading guilty to one count of escape; on June 15, while under detention in Fulton County Eastern District Court, broke detention and fled the courtroom; was apprehended later; ordered to serve 119 days at Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, credit for 119 days served; placed on community control for three years; ordered to pay cost of prosecution, attorney fees, seek and maintain employment, not to consume or possess alcohol, stay out of bars-taverns, abide by 10 pm-6 am curfew; continue to live with his mother in Delta; complete assessment and treatment at a drug-alcohol agency; failure to comply could result in nine-month prison sentence. •James D. Lowe, 58, Toledo; sentenced Nov. 15 after previously pleading guilty to one count possession of cocaine; on April 27, during a traffic stop, Lowe was found to be in possession of the drug; sentenced to two years, non-reportable community control; ordered to pay cost of prosecution, be evaluated and successfully complete drug-alcohol treatment; not to consume alcohol or drugs, stay out of bars-taverns, driver license suspended for year; have no contact with a Delta gas station-convenience store.

•Christopher J. LaPoint, 44, Swanton; one count theft; on or about Oct. 16, allegedly stole blank checks from a person. •J.P. Morgan, 49, Napoleon; one count, possession of cocaine; on or about July 20, he allegedly possessed cocaine. •Darnell D. Robinson, 30, Toledo; one count, identity fraud; on or about Oct. 26, allegedly possessed personal identifying information of another person, with intent to hold himself

Local Woman’s Credit Card Used In Florida Barbara M. Alexander, 56, Archbold, told Archbold police on Tuesday, Nov. 22, her Lowe’s credit card account was illegally used in Florida on Oct. 11. Alexander said she received a statement showing a purchase of $272.16 for building and plumbing supplies at a Lowe’s store in Ormond Beach, Fla. She said she did not make any purchases at the store, nor did she authorize anyone to use her card. The police report states the credit card number was entered manually, and that it was possible a store clerk could have entered Alexander’s number by mistake. Officers advised Alexander to take precautions against identity theft, and told her she could contact law enforcement in Florida. In an unrelated case, a report of possible theft by deception proved to be a mix-up, an Archbold police report states. Representatives of Friendship Foods reported a person purchased $41.82 in fuel, and charged it to a business account. After reviewing the security video from the store, the subject purchasing the fuel was identified. Further investigation showed a mix-

6–Archbold (Ohio) Buckeye, Week of November 30, 2011

OPINIONS/HISTORY Golden Notes Of Archbold's Memorable Past

Our Schools Are Tops

A recent draft report issued by the Ohio Department of Education tells residents of the Archbold and Pettisville school districts what they already have known for years.

The report shows that both school districts are among the best in the State of Ohio.

Not only are the two school districts among the best, they achieved their high rankings without undue cost-per-pupil spending.

The report compares schools based on their performance index scores, which are part of the Ohio Department of Education school report cards.

Out of more than 930 Ohio schools

ranked in the report, Archbold had the 94th-highest performance index score. Archbold’s reported cost per pupil was $9,222. Only 27 out of the top 100 districts reported a lower figure.

Michael L. Kinsman defeated Mark Ballmer by two votes to win a seat on the Franklin Township Board of Trustees in the Nov. 8 General Election.

Two more votes for Ballmer would have tied the race. Two or more people taking time to go to the polls might have changed the

The fourth annual Parade of Lights attracted a large crowd of spectators with temperatures in the 50s and no rain or trains. There were 62 parade units. Six appeared at the ConAgra parking lot that were not registered, but joined the parade.

Your Vote Does Count

For those who say their vote doesn’t make a difference, just look at the Franklin Township Trustee race.

outcome of the election. It was no fluke, no anomaly. Over the years, there have been several cases where just a few votes changed everything. The will of the people is gauged by elections. When more people go to the polls, the will of the people is more accurately represented. When the next election rolls around, remember that one vote can make a difference.

Archbold (Ohio) Buckeye, Week of November 30, 2011–7

Former Auto Dealership Good Home For Church by David Pugh Buckeye Staff Writer A few weeks ago, Doug Haase and Larry Snow from the West Franklin Church of Christ were out calling on area families, when they drove by the former Yark Automotive building in Archbold. Haase said Snow commented that the vacant building “would make a good church.” “’Right,’” Hasse said at the time. “’Like we’re going to walk into a $2 million facility and start preaching.’” Later, Haase got in touch with Steve Wyse, Archbold, owner of the building. The two worked out an agreement to lease the building for a church. That was the start of Archbold’s newest house of worship, Christ’s Christian Church. The former auto dealership lends itself well to its new role. Haase pointed out the building is on South Defiance Street, making the new church “very visible.” Other positive attributes include seating space for 150 people, plus 250 spaces for parking on a blacktop lot. Growing Churches Haase, a Pettisville resident who served as the interim minister at the First Church of Christ of Waldron, Mich. has become the leader of the group. “They (the congregation at the Waldron Church) asked me to serve for two weeks, and I stayed two-and-a-half years,” he said. The Waldron church grew and a full-time minister was hired. From there, Haase said he helped out at the West Franklin Church of Christ. The church started growing and needed more space, but the congregation didn’t want to alter its historic 1867 building. Haase said he recruited Pete Beck, West Unity, who was part of the leadership at the West Unity Church of Christ. Haase said he and Beck were brainstorming, “and the Lord put us together. “We started dreaming together,” Haase said.

St. Martin’s Lutheran Sunday: Amanda Reyes, acolyte; Susan Dominique, lector; Steve Basselman, organist/pianist; Basselman family, lighting of Advent wreath; chancel choir, accompanied by Beth Reichert and Kenzie Short, “Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus.” Children’s sermon and message, “No More Post-Thanksgiving Snooze,” Paul Reichert. Wednesday: meal, 5:15 pm; informal worship, catechism, Welcome Place Kids, 6 pm; high school Bible study, bell choir, 6:30 pm; chancel choir, 7:30 pm.

community has been very welcoming. For example, the Christ’s Christian pulpit came from Central Mennonite Church. “The Gideons stopped in and welcomed us. It’s been a good experience so far,” Haase said. And so far, the church’s budget has been running in the black as well, thanks in part to favorable lease terms provided by Wyse. “This wouldn’t have happened without the grace of God and Mr. Wyse,” he said. That, and perhaps a bit of divine intervention. “The Lord keeps us supplied,” Haase said. As another example of faith, the church recently purchased a used $13,100 photocopier through an Internet auction site for $103. Ministering Mark Eugene Snow is the Christ’s Christian minister. He and his wife moved to Archbold from the Columbus area. Haase said he got to know Snow when both were at the Church of Christ in Waldron. Snow was preaching at the Waldron Church when he was diagnosed with a terminal lung disease. It was Haase, in fact, who took over for Snow. Snow said doctors gave him five to seven years to live. He is now five-and-a-half years past diagnosis, and at this point, “it looks like there is no slowing down. “I can’t do physical things, but I can talk,” he said. Snow said Christ’s Christian is an autonomous church. It is not aligned with a particular conference. The West Franklin and West Unity churches are considered sister churches, he said.

Three men are at the core of Christ’s Christian Church, Archbold’s newest house of worship in the former Yark Automotive building. From left: Pete Beck, Doug Haase, and Mark Snow, minister.

PHS Girls Open Season With Loss At Wauseon by Adrienne Schmucker Buckeye Correspondent The Pettisville girls basketball team traveled to Wauseon Friday, Nov. 25, to start its season, only to come back with a 54-42 loss. The Birds were down 1211 at the end of the first quarter, and weren’t able to come out ahead in any of the other quarters as well. Wauseon increased its lead to 27-19 at the half, outscoring Pettisville 15-8, and by the end of the third the lead was 40-32 as both teams scored 13 points. The Indians outscored the Blackbirds 14-10 in the fourth. Tanner Hostetler was the only Blackbird in double figures, with 19 points. Wauseon’s Bailey Creager led all scorers with 25, followed by Annette Stidham’s

15 points. Pettisville shot 15-67 from the field for 22%. The Birds were 10-24 at the foul line for 42%. Wauseon shot 16-39 from the field for 41%, and was 1932 at the foul line for 59%. Wauseon out-rebounded Pettisville 37-31. “We didn’t capitalize on the number of turnovers (20) that we made them commit,” said Jason Waldvogel, PHS head coach. Wauseon won the junior varsity game, 35-30. BOX SCORE PETTISVILLE (42) - T. Hostetler 19, L. Hostetler 3, Bontrager 5, King 5, Nofziger 6, Klopfenstein 1, Frey 3. Totals 15-10-42.

Archbold Wrestlers Return To Action Expectations are high for the Archbold wrestling team, which returns 18 letterwinners from last year’s 36-6 squad. “We have guys on our team that expect to win because of the amount of work they have put in since the end of last season,” said Brian Becher, ninth-year head coach who has compiled a 297-73-1 record. “With that attitude, they will be winning matches in Columbus.” Lost to graduation were TJ Weirauch, a state placer; Brandon Dennie, a district placer; and Isaac Rosales. Returning seniors are Oliver Stuckey, 145 pounds, district placer; Jordan Cowell, 152 lbs., state placer; Austin Ripke, 160 lbs., state qualifier; Cody Kovnesky, 170 lbs., district placer; and Kellen Seaman, 182 lbs. Four juniors are back: Justin Arce, 113 lbs.; Ben Eggers, 120 lbs., state qualifier; Brendan Manz, 120 lbs.; Justice Zimmerman, 138 lbs. Sophomores returning are Drew Coffey, 106 lbs.; Logan Day, 126 lbs.; Kenny Price, 132 lbs., state qualifier; Koltin Zimmerman, 138 lbs; Cory Rocha, 138 lbs.; Micah Garcia, 145 lbs.; Preston Klopfenstein, 170 lbs.; Eli Hammersmith, 182 lbs.; Travis Jaramillo, 195 lbs. “We have four returning state qualifiers and two other guys that have placed at the

AHS JV Girls Fall To Edgerton The Archbold junior varsity girls basketball team opened its season, Saturday, Nov. 26, at Edgerton.

The Streaks came back in the second with eight points by Hannah Hesterman and took a 20-18 lead at halftime. Too many turnovers doomed the Streaks in the second half and they lost 4638.

Blue Streak Girls Win Season Opener, 61-39 Archbold used a 23-7 third period to run away from Edgerton 61-39, Saturday, Nov. 26, at Edgerton, in the season opener for both teams. “This was a nice way to start the season,” said Brian Ziegler, AHS head coach. “We were able to get a lot of girls in and got some very nice balance in the scoring column.” All 11 Blue Streaks played, and nine hit the scoring column. Cassidy Wyse and Mindy Rupp led the Streaks with 11 points each. Jesse Fidler also was in double digits, with 10. Archbold jumped out to a 12-4 lead after one period and led 26-17 at the half. “I liked our pressure on the defensive end, especially by the guards,” said Ziegler. “We were able to disrupt their offense. “We came out slow on the offensive end, and once the first-game jitters were gone, we did okay. “The third quarter was a big key, led by several fullcourt transitions by Cassidy Wyse. “I was pleased with our free-throw shooting. We’ll try to cut the mistakes down and keep reinforcing the good things we did.” Shelby Herman, Devin Stark, and Jamie Newman paced the Bulldogs with nine points each.

Archbold Wastewater Plant Struggles After Days Of Rain

Here’s The Church... This church, complete with steeple, was one of 48 entries in the 2011 Archbold Parade of Lights. While the total number of entries was down, there were several new ones in the

parade. Relatively mild weather conditions helped bolster the crowd.–photo by David Pugh

Crews at the Archbold Wastewater Treatment plant are struggling against high water, after 5.6 inches of rain fell in the past 11 days. Wastewater plant workers recorded 5.6 inches between Saturday, Nov. 19 and Tuesday morning, Nov. 29. It was still raining Tuesday after the last reading was taken. Dennis Howell, Archbold village administrator, said about 2:30 pm, Tuesday, the plant is processing wastewater at capacity, 4.5 million gallons per day. But wastewater is flowing into the plant faster than that. The excess is being diverted to a detention pond at the plant, he said. The plant discharges treated wastewater into Brush Creek. The creek is higher than the discharge point, so a 4,000 gallon-per-minute portable pump is pumping treated wastewater from the

er into the storm sewers. For decades, Archbold officials have tried to find ways to keep storm water out of the sanitary sewers, but several projects have been unable to entirely solve the problem.

outlet into the creek. Howell said several of the sanitary sewer lines were “surcharged” meaning they reached capacity. At one place, a portable pump was pumping wastewater from the sanitary sew-

*Repairs Start Finish When the new Pettisville School was built, the 1994 addition, plus a portion of the elementary school building, were retained. The process of closing off openings left by the demolition, known as the “button up” project, is expected to be completed by the end of December. The atrium project, which will provide an entrance for after-hours school events, will be completed by the end of January.

(Continued from first page) hall addition. Switzer said students access the library by walking along the bus loop in front of the new building, away from the atrium addition. Students in junior high school physical education go to the 1994 gym by walking along the west end of the school buildings, away from atrium construction. The study hall above the library is not in use, but could be accessed through a rear stairway, Switzer said.

(Continued from first page) Sattler, who have a rural Defiance address, and Fricke, whose bid was disqualified. Since the bid was originally submitted, a limited liability corporation, Flatrock Pork, LLC, was formed to purchase Henry Pig. Mark J. Sattler, rural Defiance, was named the statutory agent for Flatrock Pork. The purchase price was $465,000. •O-MI-O, another sow operation with animals, property and other assets at 17311 Co. Rd. 21-50, Fayette, in Williams County. There were three original bidders: Richard Lange of Republic Mills; Michael E.

Mull, a veterinarian; and Fricke. After negotiations, Centaur Associates, LLC, was the highest bidder for O-MIO. The statutory agent for Centaur is Rex H. Huffman, Rossford. A second LLC, MMDS Investments, LLC, was formed and purchased O-MI-O. Huffman is also the statutory agent for MMDS. The purchase price was $325,000. •Kainos Nursery, which raised pigs from the time they were weaned from the sow to market weight. The sale included real estate, equipment, and machinery located at 12979 Co. Rd. 16, Wauseon, in Fulton

Prices In the court documents, Kowalski said, “The receiver believes that these sales are in the best interest of the receivership. “The receiver believes the proposed prices, although low, are commercially reasonable under the circumstances and are not inconsistent with the analysis performed by Veid & Veid (a certified public accounting firm) on May 16.”

*Pettisville 27th, Archbold

(Continued from first page) He said the Ohio Department of Education used a year when Pettisville’s enrollment was down by about 50 students, which pushed up the cost-per-pupil figure. Deskins told the school board Archbold was sixth in Fulton County in cost per pupil. Wauseon was the lowest in the county, at $8,259. Deskins also told board members of the top 100 school districts ranked based on performance index, only 27 spent less per pupil than Archbold. The highest per-pupil expenditure was ISUS, Institute of Construction Technology, in Montgomery County, where $40,026 was spent per pupil on education. The school had a PI score of 106.5. The top-ranked school had a per pupil cost of $24,308; the lowest, $10,029. Most of the per-pupil expenditures were in the $8,000 to $11,000 range. One school reported zero spending, while others were less than $1,000. Some of the schools with the lowest per-pupil costs were

digital academies. Ownership Switzer said he was “very pleased, obviously” with the results of the performance index rankings. When asked how Pettisville schools reached the high ranking, he said, “I think everything goes back to ownership. "The kids take ownership to do well. The teachers take ownership by preparing the students. "The administrators take ownership of preparing the teachers. The parents support the schools.” Everyone, he said, com-

mits themselves to doing well. “It’s not someone else’s job,” he said. Deskins told school board members, “This is an achievement that the entire community should be proud of,” pointing out that of the 100 top-ranked schools, Archbold is 28th lowest in per-pupil spending.
