The Tornado

Summer Memories

June 30, 2010

Submitted by Barbara Detweiler It was May 31, 1985, and it started off like any other day. I washed clothes, and I remember thinking it was very muggy and humid. It was hard to breathe. At 3:30, I went to our neighbors’ to babysit. I took brother Steven (almost 7) along and was going to send him home with brother John when he walked past on his way home from work. I started supper at 4:30. The children were downstairs playing, and I made them come upstairs because it was thundering and lightening. I closed all the windows. I saw John go past at 5 and decided Steven could just stay, so I yelled out to tell John to let mom know. (If I had sent Steven home, they would have been in the direct path of the tornado.) I went back to the stove when suddenly I heard this roar, and it got really windy. Windows flew open and leaves came flying in through the roof. When I finally got my brain to think, I yelled, “Run for the basement!” and I grabbed the two youngest children and ran. Of course by then, it was over. A huge tree had fallen on the house and damaged it. When a neighbor came running to see if we were okay, it finally really registered in my mind what it was. I looked up toward the east, and there went this pure white funnel. The children were screaming and crying, and I had to control myself for their sakes. Then I thought of John, who had been walking at that time. Just then dad and the others came running up and said John was okay. He had hurled himself into the ditch when he saw the tornado coming, and he watched the neighbor’s shop go. We looked up toward Aunt Betty and Uncle John’s place and dad said, “Their house isn’t there anymore.” Dad and mom went up to John’s, and I took the children down to our place. Brother Wally had been at our grandparents’ house along with Betty and children, and they had run for the back bedroom because the basement was full of water. Wally got a gash in his head and had to go to emergency. (Dad brought Wally’s hat home; it was all bloody.) Uncle Dan’s wife, Mary Ann, was also at grandpa’s, and she had to go to emergency, too. She got 15 stitches in her leg, and Wally had stitches in the back of his head, in his shoulder and in his lips. This was all because of flying glass in the bedroom. Uncle John and Aunt Betty had to rebuild, and people showed up by the hundreds to help with the cleanup, etc. Three weeks after the tornado, their house was up, sided and drywalled, and they moved into the basement.

One-day Trips

Submitted by Donnie Miller Our summer memories were that mom and dad always tried to take the family for a one-day trip after the corn was planted and before the start of putting up hay. Often they would take us on a picnic and fishing, often to Mosquito Lake. One time we had planned to go to Punderson Lake, but I had to stay at home because I had the MUMPS! One time we made a one-day trip to Niagara Falls, which I can barely remember.

Water Fights

Submitted by Susan Yoder Probably one of my favorite childhood memories is the water fights we’d have. When mom would let us, we’d fill up fivegallon buckets with water (usually cold) and use glasses and have ourselves a blast! I think our feet barely touched the ground as we literally flew to get away from each other. I must say mom had tons of patience with us tracking in wet grass, etc., but there was nothing like it to cool off on a hot summer day!

Summer Memories

15480 Burton-Windsor Rd

Submitted by Jacquie Foote

The summer memory that stands out for me is the memory of a crime. I was just 5 years old and had become enchanted with a neighbor’s backyard full of tulips. I had never seen those before, and I longed to get one to give my mom. But the neighbor lady did not speak English well and hollered a lot, so I was afraid to ask her for one. Well, one day I rode my tricycle into her yard to sneakily pick one. It was then that I realized I didn’t know how to pick a tulip. It became apparent that grasping the flower and pulling resulted in a lot of petals in the hand but no real flower. I tried various picking techniques, but since I always grasped the bloom rather than the stem, I had no luck. I’m not sure how many tulips I ruined before the paperboy saw me and hollered at me, but there were quite a few. So, criminal that I was, I jumped on the tricycle and made my getaway before the lady came out. For a time, I hid behind our garage and thought about running away. Suppertime came, and I decided it was best just to go home. After giving me a “good” talking to, my parents walked me to the neighbor’s home so I could apologize and find out what I would have to do to make restitution. I accepted the scolding she gave me, but as for restitution, she simply declared she never wanted me to come into her yard again. No problem! In fact, for as long as we lived there, I never passed her house except by crossing the street first.

Summer Memories By Sarah Miller

Some summer games we played when I was a child involved a platform in the haymow. We had plays. There were also lots of places to hide, when playing hide and seek. (Being one of the youngest in our family, my two younger sisters and I had several nieces and nephews to play with.) There was a rope fastened to the roof inside the barn and we spent many a time swinging on it. Now, most of the hay gets baled; therefore there’s no need for a rope to pull hay into the barn.

One fond summer memory we have is when we’d be in bed and at exactly 10 p.m. ,we’d hear the bugle play “Taps” from the Parkman Boy Scout Camp. It was a soothing, sort of sweet-sad sound.

Corn is not all planted yet on account of wet weather. Gideon Detweiler, who had been sick the past few weeks, is feeling better. Mrs. E. E. Miller is very low at this time. A curious incident occurred with C. E. Bennett of this county. On Monday, June 6, he left his home with his horse and road cart and has not been seen since. It is said that before he left he remarked to his wife it would never cost a cent for his funeral. On the following day, his horse, cart, and hat were found by the side of the river, and it is supposed that he drowned in the river. A search for his body is being made today.

Warm and wet weather at present. Corn is a late crop this summer on account of the rain. Daniel Byler and wife have gone to Lawrence County, Pa. to visit friends. Noah Byler and Emma Miller are doing chores and keeping house for them. Joseph Hershberger is drawing milk for John Miller this summer. We hope to find out by and by how he likes it. (Note … Anyone out there know what drawing milk was?)

From a 1940s Diary

Submitted by Katherine Byler Emma J. Byler came home with her friend, Fannie S. Miller for overnight. (Fannie worked at a restaurant in Middlefield.) Emma’s friend, Dan Shrock, was also there for supper. (Note … Emma and Dan ended up being wed for 66 years. Recently, for her 91st birthday, Emma received 200+ birthday cards, but she doesn’t know why so many!)

Warm Weather RECIPES BBQ Chicken Kabobs

A Letter from March 5, 1958 Submitted by Katherine Byler

Dear Ones, People are busy in the sugar woods. Dad is at work. Ben just put the milk out. Allan took the buggy over to Dan Kurtz to fix. Dad and I had a wreck last night. He went over to the board meeting. And I stayed at Henry Shrocks to visit with Ed Lydia. When he came back, we didn’t see him right away and his horse started to go and he couldn’t hold it, and it went so fast around the lane corner that it tipped over. The horse stopped then, but had two posts broken and the oilcloth torn. So we have to fix it again. I wanted him to take Charlie and the old buggy. And we wanted him to sell that horse for it wasn’t safe. Dad thought it was, for him. Now he’s ready to sell him, too. But the buggy broke. Guess we all have to learn the hard way. I’m glad I wasn’t on the buggy. We walked all the way home from Henrys. Mary’s baby is doing very good. She weighs almost 8 pounds (almost 6 weeks old) and she’s getting a double chin. Yesterday the men started digging a drain ditch for a basement on the north side of the garden. Maybe when we get old, we will build a dawdy* house on it. IF we get old.

The little girl was sitting in her father’s lap as he read her a goodnight story. From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek. By and by she was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again. Finally she spoke, “Daddy, did God make you?” “Yes, sweetheart,” he answered, “God made me a long time ago.” “Oh.” she said. Then, “Daddy, did God make me too?” “Yes, indeed, honey,” he assured her, “God made you just a little while ago.” “Oh.” she said. Feeling their respective faces again, she observed, “God’s getting better at it now, isn’t he?”

Hello from Huntsburg By William Bender

Large Selection of Unique Planters, Wishing Wells and Lighthouses

What’s coming out of this pen is hard to say. I’m behind; this should be out of the house by now. Huntsburg lost a longtime resident, Simon Yoder (81 years, 7 months, and 6 days old). He was born in Huntsburg and lived in the township most of his life. He lived at the corner of Townline and Nauvoo Road for a while, and, at one time, lived on Peters Road. He was Uncle Dan’s first customer when he started Byler’s harness Shop. There is a lot of fishing going on. I did go for a few years. The last time I went, I didn’t get one fish. In the late 60s Eria Miller, Melvin Troyer (both deceased now) and I went to Fairport Harbor on the break wall to fish. A thunderstorm came up, and a guy was fishing with a steel rod. He lost his life as lighting struck him. A lifeboat came and got the body. They said the steel rod pulled the lightening. It was not long until three Amish men were alone on that break wall! Everyone else cleared out. We had a driver, and she had gone home. There we were. We looked like drowned rats. By noon the sun came out, and we did catch a few fish. Hidden View School had their school trip June 14. They went to Niagara Falls, but just stayed on the American side. I haven’t seen anyone since they came home, so we don’t know what kind of day they had. Son Gideon’s school went to Put-N-Bay June 16.

Katherine’s Korner By Katherine M. Byler

THEY GOT ME! Then they dropped me when they were full of my blood! Yes, it was the skeeters. Can’t sit outside without being invaded by the worthless pests, especially at a certain time of the evening. Told some of our children I’ve reached the half-birthday mark, so they so kindly sang half the birthday song for me. It’s the thought that counts. Jim Weaver helped his church family sing “Happy Birthday” supposedly to Ray Mast when they turned to him and sang his name! Talk about flustered! Three teachers from Mespo Elementary School retired after over 30 years each of teaching kindergarten and first grade. A dinner with reminiscing was attended by many at Mary Yoder’s restaurant. The teachers were Sharon Simkins, Kathy Newcomb and Marti Klosinski. Things will not be the same. Ray and Raymond Mast and Elmer Mast Jr. tried their fishing luck at Pymatuning Lake, staying at a cabin for a week. A bat (live one) seemed to attack Ray Sr., and he took off running and fell in the mud. Elmer couldn’t help himself but laugh. Then found it difficult to stop. (They need bats out there for the mosquitoes, etc.) Weddings are going strong in the Amish community here and in other areas, too. We were in Clymer, N. Y. at the wedding of a former neighbor, Matthew Troyer, son of Paul and Martha. Of course, not being able to be two places at once, we had to miss out on a local girl’s wedding, Erma Mast to Sammy Troyer Jr. Mrs. (Davis S.) Lizzie is doing well enjoying birthday cards, gifts and visits for her 80th birthday. An open house was held for Mrs. (Enos) Mary Shrock’s 80th birthday. She was real pleased with all who came. Friends can help Kathryn Finlaw celebrate her July 6 birthday. Send cards and greetings to her at 10230 S.R. 46, N.E., North Bloomfield, OH, 44450.

Mel and Sarah Miller moved to Lanes Road. The seventh and eighth grader pupils, parents and teachers of Windsor Mills and Cox Road Schools went to Niagara Falls on Wednesday, June 2. There was a wedding June 17 at widow Katie (Yost) Byler’s of her daughter and John and Ida Fisher’s son. There was also a wedding, this one June 17, at Chris and Cora Fisher’s of their daughter and Alan Mullet’s son. Found out that work crews can stop at the corner of Girdle Road and Wilcox Road Tuesday mornings for donuts. The donut lady stays up all night to get her supply made (around 26 dozen).

Mom’s Diary

By Linda Weaver

(Formerly called “Words from Windsor”)

By Barbara Ann Detweiler

We have been enjoying the sunshine, which has managed to come in between so many rainy days. The rain is good for the gardens, but we still need to plant a few seeds. We attended the weddings of Mark and Cindy Bontrager and, two days later, of Freeman and Ruthie Troyer. Both couples had beautiful days, which means so much with all the people being able to visit outside. Tents were set up to sit under. That’s where the gifts are usually opened also. The week of June 13 saw the wedding of Paul, son of Robert and Laura Troyer, to Rose, daughter of Andy and Dorothy Miller, on Tuesday and Adam, son of Albert and Anna Marie Miller, to Clara Mae, daughter of Bill and Martha Detweiler on Thursday. It seems like more weddings than usual this year. Congratulations to all! Roy and Esther Bontrager celebrated their 45th anniversary on June 10. It was at this wedding I met my husband, Jake. Roy is my cousin , and Esther is Jake’s sister. My sister Sara and John Hershberger celebrated their 50th anniversary on June 9. Their address is 15959 Portie-Flamingo Rd., Corning, OH, 43730. They would enjoy hearing from friends and family, I’m sure. Only five baby swans remain at the Mat’s pond. Two mysteriously disappeared, and one was injured by a snapping turtle and died. The ones remaining are growing fast and will be full grown by fall.

Saturday, May 22: A dreary, rainy day. I baked, sewed, cooked … the usual. Dad came up for a few hours while mom went to an alumni dinner at the old Windsor School. She told the children to babysit grandpa, and if he cries to give him a pacifier. They got a kick out of that. We had our first watermelon today – from a fruit peddler- but a treat never the less. Sunday, May 23: Went to church, then to Uncle Wally and Barbara’s for a belated birthday surprise. Played a game of croquet. After we got home the little girls told me … Wally is funny.  Monday, May 24: I did sewing and mending ALL day and, by tonight, I felt crosseyed. So I went outside and planted some flowers. Tuesday, May 25: Another warm day and I enjoyed every minute of it. I did more sewing and also washed all coats. This, hopefully, will be the last time for the summer. Today is brother Joe’s birthday. Wednesday, May 26: Rose Ellen scootered down to mom’s to help her for a few days. I cleaned out my flowerbeds. WHERE do all those weeds come from?! When I was done I was severely overheated. (I can’t sweat.) The kids had a fit about my red face, so I took a shower, but it still took a while to cool down.

Exp. 7/31/10

Thursday, May 27: 80 degrees today. Wayne and the boys got our garden ready to plant. Hopefully we can do that tomorrow. The mosquitoes are out in swarms. It’s almost impossible to be outside once they’re on the move. Friday, May 28: Rose Edna came home today. We cleaned house, mowed lawn and planted garden. Afterward we sat around the campfire and popped popcorn and roasted hot dogs.

Plain Country

Tuesday, June 1: Went to the “ole swimming hole” with the kids. They love playing in water, and Andrew is like a fish. He has no fear. I make them wear life jackets, though. Wednesday, June 2: Brother Steven’s birthday. Today was the seventh- and eighth-grade school trip to Niagara Falls. Laura and I went. It was an enjoyable day. Katherine went down to mom’s. Thursday, June 3: Rose Edna had to babysit today, and she took Betty along. So it was only Laura, Norma and myself here. Norma thought she couldn’t play ’cause she didn’t have anyone to play with. She’s not used to playing alone. So she followed me and did whatever I did. Friday, June 4: Tonight Wayne and I and the girls went to Warner’s Hallow School auction. John and Andrew stayed home, mowed lawn and went swimming. Saturday, June 5: During the night, I heard a commotion upstairs. This morning the boys told me they were chasing a bat that had got in. They had badminton racquets, and every time the bat went past their doorway, they gave a mighty swing. It took a while, but they finally got it and threw it out the window. Had 20 quarts of strawberries to freeze today. Sunday, June 6: A dreary, rainy morning so we drove to church in the rain. It did brighten up then, during the day. Monday, June 7: Had some friends here for the evening. The girls started sleeping in the tent every night. Norma starts out outside but usually ends up in the house. She’s still my baby! She likes to say she’s mom’s baby, but not “a” baby. Tuesday, June 8: Had 20 more quarts of strawberries to work on today. I made jam and froze the rest. Went to mom’s this afternoon and the girls planted her flowers.

Saturday, May 29: This morning Wayne finished the garden. Then he and the boys helped make hay across the road. The girls and I did some mulching, weedeating and housework. We put up two tents, one for the boys and one for the girls.

Wednesday, June 9: It rained off and on most of the day. Wayne and I went to Chardon to Home Depot to buy some flooring for Laura’s room. Then he put that in this afternoon. Norma will have to stay in the tent with the big girls ALL night ‘cause Wayne and I are leaving early tomorrow morn.

Sunday, May 30: Went to church, came home and rested. Later dad and mom and brother John, Laura and family came up to camp out. We sat around the campfire till midnight before finally settling down in the tents As for me, I slept in my bed!

Thursday, June 10: Wayne and I went to Clymer, N.Y. to his niece’s wedding … and Norma didn’t make a peep while sleeping in the tent! Saw lots of people at the wedding including Rudy Detweiler Emma. She likes attention, so, if you see her, give her some! 

Monday, May 30: The men and boys were up at 6 a.m. already! We made breakfast outside, then visited and ate again when lunchtime rolled around. It stormed this afternoon, and nephew Wayne almost lost his pants when it thundered hard! After it quit, they all left for home and I went to do laundry. When I next looked into the living room, on every chair and couch was a sleeping person!

Friday, June 11: I stayed busy today preparing a meal for a box social we attended tonight. Betty and Norma were pretending Betty was the man driving the horse and Norma was his wife. Betty got disgusted at Norma for some reason and asked her, “Why did I marry you anyway?” Never a dull moment around here!

June 10 was a nice day. I wrote this letter, gave my hanging baskets plant food, did laundry, went to Garrettsville with Ivan for his doctor appointment and did grocery shopping. We’ve got our spring cleaning done! I’ve also helped Ivan clean the shop. We moved the big stuff out and we got everything in order, washed windows and power washed the floor. Ivan also mowed the lawn. Barbara trimmed and I helped some. I planted the last of my flowers, fixed a couple boxes, and put the last of the marigolds in the garden. I picked strawberries and made three batches of freezer jam! We went to Hartville flea market with a load on June 7. We had a nice time; it wasn’t too warm that day. We ate at the Hartville Kitchen before we came home. June 9 was the funeral of old Simon Yoder. He hadn’t been well for a while. He had twin granddaughters who got married a week apart recently. Simon was able to be at wedding part of the day. We had a bird singing way on top of a tree in our treeline this spring. We heard it, the sound was different. We finally saw the bird a couple weeks ago and we looked it up in our bird book. We think it may have been a Phainopepla. Now, we haven’t seen it for several days. So maybe it left. We’ve been getting rain every few days lately and gardens are growing. Also the lawns are nice and green

Strawberries are on the menu at present. We have had a good crop. It is a bit of a chore for me to bend down and pick. We have had enough to share with our children and friends this year, but with the wet weather we have had some spoilage. Gardens are growing, but so are the weeds! We attended two weddings the second week of June. On June 8 Mark Bontrager, son of Lee and Ida, wed Cindy Bender, daughter of Edward and Edna Bender. Marks will have their home in the Orwell area. Thursday, June 10, we traveled to the Clymer, N. Y. area to take in the wedding of Matthew Troyer and Amanda Detweiler. Amanda is the daughter of the David Detweilers, my nephew. We went with my sister and family, the Monroe Detweilers. The third week saw the wedding of Adam Miller and Clara Mae Detweiler at the bride’s home, the Bill and Martha Detweilers on Georgia Road. Dan Wengerd who has a tumor on his pancreas is slowly out. Our daughter Saloma (Mrs. David Detweiler) has plans to have a Downs gathering at their home on Hunt Road on July 13. This is for parents and grandparents of those who have children with Downs syndrome who live in this area. Coffee and cold drinks will be furnished, but bring your own meal. We are looking forward to a weekend visit with son Dannie and family over the weekend of July 11. Dannies live in northern Indiana.

Understanding Horses By Daniel Fisher

The mineral that a horse needs the most is sodium, or as we call it, salt. Salt is vital in maintaining the proper fluid and electrolyte balance in the body. Since salt is excreted in the urine and is used in bodily functions, it should be available on a regular basis. Lactating mares use more salt since some is lost in supplying the milk for the foal. More salt is also used in hot weather or hard exercise. Salt helps regulate the cooling mechanism in the body and is excreted by sweating. Since the need for salt differs from one horse to another and at different times, it should be free choiced. If you add salt to the feed, it should be very little, and you still need to free choice so the horse can regulate himself. If a horse has had no salt for a long time, he can eat too much at a time until it is balanced. Too much salt can cause a severe fluid imbalance and can be fatal. A salt deficiency will decrease the horse’s appetite and water intake. He can show signs of fatigue and heat exhaustion. A salt deficiency retards growth, reduces lactation and causes a rough hair coat. A horse suffering from deficiency of salt or any other mineral may begin chewing wood, eating, dirt and/or any other non-food items. Not enough water can also cause toxicity from salt. A correct potassium and salt balance means a correct fluid balance. A natural salt usually has a good amount of potassium in it. Refined salt is usually sodium chloride only, and potassium should be made available, especially in the winter to keep the proper fluid balance

Parkman Pathways By Ellen Hershberger

I’ve been lax in keeping up my diary, so I’ll have to wing it. Since I’m not a real writer but just a pretend one, hopefully I’ll do better next time. The produce-growing families have been very busy picking their first crops and getting more planting done. We thank God for a Sabbath day of rest! Some of the crops that are ready are kale, lettuce, broccoli and strawberries. Mrs. Edna Mae Detweiler fell and broke her elbow. She needed surgery to fix it. On Wednesday, June 16, there was a wedding to attend at cousin Truman Hershbergers. Then, the following Thursday, there was the wedding of Steven Yoder and Ada Miller. The weddings seem to have slowed a bit but not much. I’m phasing out the laundry job and am off on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Be blessed!
