Quick action nets monies for young cancer patient LINDA MOODY

CORRESPONDENT

ANSONIA – A hair-cutting event – Brave the Shave – last Sunday was successful and showed where the Ansonia community, especially the school, came together once again to make it special. All of this was for Brayden Barnes, who has been diagnosed with Rhabdoyma Sarcoma. “Brayden wanted to hold onto his hair as long as he could,” said his mother,

Jeannette (Unrast) Shuff. “So we knew that he wanted to have a few of his friends come over and shave their heads and his friends were in support of that. Brayden came to me mid-Saturday afternoon and said, ‘Mom I think it’s time.’ So I called Cassie Bunger and asked her if she would be able to cut his hair with some of his buddies in our garage and we talked about later possibly doing a shave-a-thon or something but that we didn’t have enough time to put something together. I then reached out to Sarah Edwards to see if this would be

Ansonia celebrating American Legion’s 100th anniversary LINDA MOODY

CORRESPONDENT

ANSONIA – The Eck Ary/Douglas Dickey American Legion Post 353 in Ansonia will be celebrating 100 years of the largest veterans service organization, American Legion, with an open house this Sunday (March 17) from 3-5 p.m. on Mackinaw Street. Organizers said there will be free tacos and taco salad as well as reduced prices on drinks available. They are inviting all members and area veterans to the event. The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. According to historical accounts, focusing on service to veterans, service members and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States. “Membership swiftly grew to over 1 million, and local posts sprang up across the country,” the report noted. “Today, membership stands at over 2 million in more than 13,000 posts worldwide. The posts are organized into 55 departments: one each for the 50 states, along with the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico and the Philippines.” Over the years, the account went on - the Legion has influenced considerable social change in America, won hundreds of benefits for veterans and produced many important programs for children and youth. Members of the Ameri-

can Expeditionary Force convene in Paris for the first American Legion caucus March 15-17, 1919. At the St. Louis caucus, “The American Legion” was adopted as the organization’s official name. The Legion’s draft preamble and constitution were approved. On June 9, the National Executive Committee adopted the Legion emblem, and on Sept. 16, Congress chartered The American Legion. Nov. 10-12, the first Legion convention convened in Minneapolis, where the Constitution and preamble were adopted. Delegates voted 361-323 to locate the Legion’s national headquarters in Indianapolis, instead of Washington. A resolution was passed in support of Boy Scouts of America. Today, the Legion is the chartering agency for more than 1,700 Scouting units made up of approximately 64,000 youths. On Aug. 9, 1921, the Legion’s efforts resulted in the creation of the U.S. Veterans Bureau, forerunner of the Veterans Administration. Today, the Legion continues to lobby for adequate funding to cover medical, disability, education and other benefits for veterans. The first “Flag Code” was drafted during a Legion conference in Washington on June 15, 1923. Congress adopted the code in 1942. Today, the Legion is at the forefront of efforts to pass a constitutional amendment to protect the U.S. flag from physical desecration. The Sons of The American Legion was officially recognized during the 1932 National Convention in Portland, Ore., in September 1932.

something her son, Parker, would be into because they are good friends. She was on board and offered to help cut hair. Then, she reached out to Dustin Hecht to ask about the baseball team and then it took off like wildfire. We really had no idea what the turnout was going to be.” They shaved over 80 heads of hair and raised $2,054.” This was done in less than a 24-hour notice to the community through Facebook Instagram and Caring Bridge. Those cutting hair included Jessica Miller, Cassie Bunger, Jennifer Scott, Amy Gessler and Sarah Edwards. “He could not believe the support for him,” Jeannette said. “Brayden did get his hair cut that night. He was the first alongside his dad, Douglas Barnes, his stepdad Scott Shuff, his oldest brother Jayden Barnes

and his grandpa, Douglas Barnes.” According to her, the diagnosis was made after Brayden suffered a back injury at school and they found out that he had a fracture in his l4 and that he had lesions all along his spine. He has finished two rounds of chemo and is currently in the middle of his third round at Dayton Children’s. She went on, “Brayden has been extremely positive through this. His whole motto has been ‘God’s got this.’” An eighth-grader, the 15-year-old plays baseball and runs in track and cross country. This event, she said, didn’t start out as a fundraiser until Dustin Hecht offered to start an auction to have his head shaved, and then TJ Philpot, the junior high baseball coach, decided to get in on the auction after which Ryan Huwer,

the math teacher, joined, followed by Jason Wright, his cross country coach and science teacher, and then Principal Jim Robson. They all decided to auction off shaving their heads and, whoever won the bid, got to shave their heads. “Tyler Studebaker, Brayden’s track coach,

missed out on the head shaving but has decided to put out a gofundme and if $2,000 is raised, he will shave his head whatever style that Brayden chooses for one week before totally shaving his head,” Jeannette said. Read more about Brayden at earlybirdpaper.com.

Hatic to share MAT knowledge at Addiction – Everyone’s Enemy SUSAN HARTLEY

STAFF WRITER shartley@aimmediamidwest.com

GREENVILLE – With a focus on providing factual information concerning drug abuse, the Darke County Republican Women’s Club is hosting a community round table at 7 p.m. April 8 at the Lighthouse Christian Center. The event, Addiction – Everyone’s Enemy - will feature a number of professionals, including Dr. Anna Hatic, clinical director of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) services at Greenville’s Family Health. According to Hatic, Family Health currently has 50 individuals receiving medication-assisted treatment for their drug addiction. The facility began offering Vivitrol in 2015, added Suboxone in 2017, and in October 2018, opened its XChange program – a twice a month clinic offering clean needles to addicts, as well as nursing services, HIV and Hepatitis C screenings. Families of addicts – or anyone wishing to carry a dose – also may receive Narcan and be trained on how to use it if the need arises. “We get phone calls every week from people suffering from the disease of addiction who want information” about medication-assisted treatment, Hatic said. “I think it’s im-

portant for the community to be part of the solution for the disease of addiction in the area.” Today’s drugs of choice, Hatic said, include fentanyl and carfentanil, as well as an increase in methamphetamine use. “Today’s heroin is fentanyl,” Hatic said, noting how more than 90 percent of those who inject drugs are positive for Hepatitis C, which is transmitted from one person to another through blood – or dirty needles. “During 2017,” Hatic said, “overdose deaths here were as high as a major city.” Supporting the upcoming roundtable, Hatic believes will “increase the awareness about the disease of addiction and the options available for medication-assisted treatment.” According to information provided by the state of Ohio for the April 2018 Addiction Treatment Week the significant treatment gap for addicts in the United States is an important part of the epidemic. Nearly 20.5 million Americans suffer from substance use disorder (SUD), yet only 1 in 10 people with SUD received treatment in 2015, nearly 2.3 million Americans suffered from opioid use disorder, yet there was only enough treatment capacity to treat 1.4 million people, leaving a treatment gap of nearly 1

million people. Hatic said she is ready to participate with the Addiction – Everyone’s Enemy round table and answer questions concerning drug treatments available and working for addicts in Darke County. A Greenville native, Hatic graduated with a bachelor of science in biology from the University of Dayton and then completed medical school at Ohio University. She also completed an internship at Grandview Hospital, followed by a residency in internal medicine at Kettering Medical Center. She returned to Greenville to practice medicine in 2012 and is board certified in internal medicine and addiction medicine. Dr. Hatic has been instrumental in bringing medication– assisted treatments for substance abuse to Darke Coumty. Other round table par-

ticipants scheduled to participate include Congressman Warren Davidson, RevoceryOhio Chair Alisha Nelson, Montgomery County Coroner Kent Harshbarger, Darke County Common Pleas Court Judge Jonathan P. Hein, Darke County Juvenile Judge Jason Aslinger, Darke County Prosecutor Kelly Ormsby, Darke County Chief Deputy and member of the sheriff’s drug task force Mark Whittaker, and recovering addict Clinton Randall. “Addiction is a problem than can or has affected every family. So we are presenting this program to provide facts to the members of our community with the hopes that the facts will get to our youth,” said Betty Hill, president of the Darke County Republican Women’s Club. “Everyone is welcome.” The event is free and open to the public.


POLICE BEAT Greenville middle school student threatens to stab teacher PAGE 2 March 17, 2019-The Early Bird, www.earlybirdpaper.com

MENACING

On March 8 an officer assigned as the School Resource Officer at the Greenville K-8 building was informed about a student who had threats of physical harm to a staff member. According to the report, the female student said “I’m getting my stuff and when I come back I’m going to stab you.� The student was immediately removed from class and sent to the office. Her guard-

ian was contacted and advised of the incident. The guardian gave the officer permission to speak with the student about the incident. The student denied saying anything about stabbing anyone. She also refused to write a statement about the incident. The principal contacted classmates and more than three-fourths of the classroom, approximately 21 students, said they heard the student say she would stab the teacher. Juvenile probation was contacted and a probation officer came to the school. The officer informed the probation officer the student would be charged with menacing. Probation took the student into custody and transported her to West Central Juvenile Detention. CHILD ENDANGERING

On March 13 an officer was dispatched at approximately 6:24 p.m. to the parking lot of 812 Front Street on a juvenile complaint. Upon arriving the officer found two adults who reported they found a three-year-old girl walking all by herself down Anderson Avenue to the 800 block of Front Street. The child was wearing sandals and a pajama dress. The two adults followed the child because they were alarmed she was walking all alone. At one point, they said the child was walking in the middle of the roadway and one of the complainants went out and guided her to the parking lot of 812 Front Street, so she would not get hit by a vehicle. The female complainant was so upset and worried about the child she started crying while officers were on scene. Officers took the child to the Greenville Police Department and contacted Children’s Services, who said they would send someone to pick the child up around 8 p.m. At approximately 7:45 p.m., Heather Wynn called the Greenville PD to report her child missing. An officer responded to Wynn’s location and confirmed that the child in custody was in fact Wynn’s daughter. Wynn and the child’s father, Scott Williams arrived at the Greenville PD to pick up their daughter. Wynn said she was sleeping, since she works third shift, and Williams was at work.

Wynn said she thought the child was in the bed with her and she fell back to sleep. The child then went and unlocked the door, and was possibly walking to her grandpa’s house when found. Wynn was cited for endangering children and the child victim was released back to her and Williams. DRUGS

On March 11 a Greenville High School School Resource Officer was contacted by a teacher about a student who was possibly under the influence of narcotics. The teacher also said other students mentioned the student had a bowl commonly used for smoking marijuana on his person. The assistant principal and the SRO removed the student from class and asked if he was under the influence. The student denied using marijuana, but said he was with people before school in Wayne Lakes who were smoking marijuana. The student was taken to the assistant principal’s office, where the SRO spoke with him about the situation. The student had glassy eyes and his speech was a bit sluggish and slow. The SRO told the student he believed he was under the influence of marijuana and told the student he was not asking questions in order to charge him for a crime. At that point the said “oh ok� and admitted he had smoked marijuana before school. The assistant principal asked the student to empty his pockets and a plas-

tic baggie with a small amount of green leafy vegetation was located in his left front pants pocket. The green leafy vegetation looked and smelled like marijuana. The officer conducted a field test and the contents tested positive for marijuana. The student is currently on probation with the Darke County Juvenile Court. His probation officer requested the student be transported to his office. This is the student’s second drug-related violation this school year and he was disciplined by the school accordingly. The SRO also issued the student a citation for drug abuse. DUI

On March 10 an officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the 800 block of Sweitzer Street for a turn signal violation. The vehicle pulled into the Wayne HealthCare parking lot. Upon making contact with the operator, who was identified as Brenda Hardwick, the officer could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from inside the vehicle. Two other officers arrived on scene to assist. Hardwick was asked how much she had to drink and she said two beers. She was asked to exit her vehicle to perform field sobriety tests. The officers could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person. Through the investigation, officers discovered that earlier, two officers had been dispatched to a domestic dispute call on West

Third Street. Hardwick and her two adult sons were at a house drinking and ended up at Danny’s Place for more drinks. Hardwick left the house on Third Street before the police were called and went to a friend’s house in the county. At that time, an officer made contact with Hardwick by phone to advise that her sons were in a domestic dispute. According to the officer who called, Hardwick sounded intoxicated on the phone and he advised her not to drive to pick up one of her sons due to her level of intoxication. Subsequently, Hardwick was placed under arrest and transported to the Greenville Police Department, where she agreed to provide a breath sample. Hardwick was placed under an administrative license suspension then issued a citation for OVI and a turn signal violation, and was then released to a friend, EARLY BIRD POLICY

Mistake Made I made a mistake. When I conceived the idea for a senior citizen park, I believed there would be two or three hundred Christian seniors that would like to have their own park and a chapel where they could practice their faith any day in the week. I expected to see senior women planting ower gardens throughout the park. I expected to see healthy senior men taking their less fortunate handicapped friends and relatives out of the nursing home for a fresh air break in the park. I even expected to celebrate senior weddings from the interaction in the park.

I was wrong. The Park Board was right. There were only a few dozen seniors that show any interest, not a few hundred. The chapel is no longer in play. I always have a backup plan. First, I have to address some health issues. So I say to all you people that love the chapel as I do, don’t worry. God’s little house in the woods will still be here when this writer and everyone that’s reading this has departed the earth. To all you seniors who offered personal and ďŹ nancial help – You will have your special place. Stay tuned, Don Wright, Greenville

GREENVILLE – The Greenville Athletic Booster is sponsoring a Fun Night Out with the Greenville Athletic Booster featuring Singo Bingo, Saturday, March 23 from 6-10 p.m. at Paws Bingo in Greenville. “The Fun Night with the Boosters is kind of a rebranding of the old Reverse Raffle,” said Greenville Athletic Director Aaron Shaffer. “The Fun Night with the Boosters is an opportunity for our Athletic Boosters to raise some funds for the athletic

department.” The event will also include free food, soft drinks, cash bar and music. A Reverse Raffle, with a grand prize up to $5,000 and Silent Auction with many valuable items donated by local business partners will be included. “It’s an opportunity to supplement the needs of the athletic department from extra equipment in individual sports to training room needs. They do a great job of providing supports for our teams and our athletic department. It will be a fun night.” All proceeds from the night’s event will go to sup-

port Greenville sports programs. “We will use the monies to support the student athletes of Greenville High School in any way we can,” said Greenville Boosters President, Randall Bowman. “It will go to any sport, any Greenville athletics program.” “It’s going to be a lot of fun,” added Bowman. “There is something to do for everybody,” Shaffer concluded. “We’ll have the NCAA basketball tournament up (big screen TVs). Should be a good time and a fun night.”

DARKE COUNTY – Darke County has become a hotbed for producing some of the top pole vaulters in the nation. Thanks to local school districts, the Ultimate Air Club based in the Ansonia area and the families of four local pole vaulters, these athletes had the opportunity to show off their skill at the 2019 New Balance Indoor Track & Field Nationals at The Armory in New York City. Earning an opportunity to compete against the top athletes in the country is not an easy task, but Darke County was honored to have Brock Shellhaas of Ansonia High School, Riley Hunt of Greenville Senior High, Selene Weaver of Franklin Monroe High School, and Lucy Prakel of Versailles High School represented their communities on a national stage. Shellhaas competed in the boys Championship division where he finished in 17th place with a vault of 4.52 meters (14’ 10”). To compete in the Championship division, Shellhaas was required to have vaulted 15.06 feet during the indoor season or 16.01 feet in last year’s outdoor season. Hunt’s vault of 12’ 6 1/4” inches (3.82 meters) was good enough for 12th

Dale Barger receives OHSAA Media Service Award

BY David Barger, Correspondent DAYTON – As Jim McKay would say with the opening segment of ABC’s Wide World of Sports, “It’s the thrill of victory and the Agony of Defeat,� that draws our attention to the magic of sports. But with high school sports in Darke County, the emotions and excitement mean so much more to the athletes, schools, and communities involved. As a former athlete, some moments seemed to just stand still in time, while others only lasted seconds. The ability to take those highlights and capture individual moments and turn them into memories is no easy feat. For the past 16 years Darke County has been blessed, not only with impressive individuals and team accomplishments, but also with those who pen the agony of defeat into words while also photographing the thrill of victory. On Saturday,

March 9th, 2019, the Ohio High School Athletic Association Southwest District awarded the Media Service Award to one of those individuals: long-time sports writer and photographer, Dale Barger. With what began as a project to support the athletes and community of Tri-Village, Dale started with the creation of a website for Tri-Village boys’ and girls’ basketball in 2003. As an athlete at the time, I remember fondly the feeling of reading the game recaps and reliving the moments viewing the action photos. Even to this day, to reect with former teammates on what was our “glory days,â€? it is not done so without a picture or an article to remind us of the moment. Dale eventually expanded his support with coverage of high school sports as a stringer for the Daily Advocate in 2004, and even assisted in the creation and co-editor of the Cross County Confer-

ence webpage in 2005. In a region of Ohio with athletes that experience a tremendous amount of success, Dale has been there to immortalize Darke County’s ďŹ nest. Though there are many moments that stand out, here are few that stand at top of the list: Feature Article – Clayton Murphy Olympic Bronze Medalist 800 Meter Run Game – Clayton Murphy State Track 1500 Meter Championship Run Game – Tri-Village Boys Basketball State Championship Game – Versailles Volleyball State Championship Game – Versailles Girls Basketball State Runnerup Game – Tri-Village Boys Basketball State Runner-up Game – Tri-Village Girls Basketball State Semi-Finals Game – Bradford Girls Softball State Semi-ďŹ nal Game – Mississinawa 35

Hoggatt, a four-year member of both teams at Union City, began her running career in the sixth grade when her art teacher and coach, Jennifer Robbins, approached her about joining the team. “I remember going home and sharing with my parents that I was joining the cross country team. They looked at me, then at each other, and came back with ‘Why?,’� Hoggatt shared. But the ride has been absolutely awesome, and the family is so glad she took to the sport. Reagan’s mother, Amy, is sad to see these chapters end, but is excited for what lies ahead. “We’re very proud of Reagan and cannot wait to be cheering her on along the course in Greencastle. We’re very thankful for the adults who helped shape Reagan’s interest

School in 1936, with 17 students at both learning places. She contracted polio when she was 5 years of age, and the effects of the disease damaged her leg, but she didn’t let it affect her life. “In first grade, they carried me everywhere I went,” she recalled.”Mom and Dad rubbed my one leg, put roller skates on me and I skated around the kitchen table. After the first year, I could get around and had to wear high-top shoes all the time while other girls were wearing saddle shoes.” After that first year, she walked by herself eventually developing a limp until she got her shoe built up. Why has she lived so long? “I don’t know,” Singer replied. “I never thought I’d live this long...heavens no. I never had many sick spells. Last April, they operated on me; I didn’t ask too many questions. Other than my bad legs, I’m not in bad shape. I take two pills a day; one for gout and the other for blood pressure.” During World War II, she moved to Dayton and worked for four years for the Civilian Defense Department at Patterson Field, which later became part of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. After the war was over, she moved back to Darke County as she wanted to continue to farm. On June 22, 1946, she married Carl Edward Singer, who had two boys Dwain (now deceased) and Jack Singer. Their union produced two more boys, Joe E. and David R. Singer. In the middle 1960s, she started working at the Great Darke County Fair for the cattle department and eventually

ists whose art is enhanced by our warm, inviting gallery space,â€? Ms. Clark said. “We are looking forward to sharing our space with outstanding artists who deserve recognition,â€? she concluded Bill Feinberg creates sculptures in a variety of media including wood, stone, and sometimes plaster bronze and steel. While nearing retirement from his 35-year career as a Professor of Sociology at the University of Cincinnati, Bill was urged by his wife to take a class in stone carving at Cincinnati’s Art Academy; he did. “And I was totally hooked after just two hours,â€? he confessed. Feinberg’s work is representational while at the same time somewhat abstract, with inuence from Inuit sculptors as well as recent masters. When asked what pieces he will bring to the Mill, he replied that some of the pieces to be displayed were inspired by birds. Birds will also show up in Michael Glass’s paintings, as will butteries and other subjects inspired by the environment surrounding us. The constantly evolving artist says that he seeks to create realistic images enhanced by abstract expressionistic energy. “Life is in constant motion, never static; if I paint an image that looks like a photograph, I am failing to demonstrate the many dimensions of the subject’s past, present, and future,â€? he said. A graduate

of Columbus College of Art and Design, Michael says that the driving force behind his art is exploration. “The search for and discovery of narratives or stories deďŹ nes my perspective on life,â€? he explained. Historic Bear’s Mill, owned and operated by Friends of Bear’s Mill, is located at 6450 ArcanumBear’s Mill Road about 5 miles east of Greenville.

“Art at the Mill� is funded in part by a grant from Darke County Endowment for the Arts, and can be viewed during regular Mill store hours. Current hours of operation are Sundays 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays; these hours will expand in April.

Kiwanis names Blosser Citizen of the Year SUSAN HARTLEY

STAFF WRITER shartley@aimmediamidwest.com

Sarah Schinke has recently opened a new women’s clothing store, Happily Ever Co. in Greenville.

Happily Ever Co. opens storefront in Greenville SUSAN HARTLEY

STAFF WRITER shartley@aimmediamidwest.com

GREENVILLE – It all started with the 127 Yard Sale. “I had six trash bags full of clothes,” explained new business owner Sarah Schinke. “Almost every lady I spoke with said ‘where do you get your clothes?’” Schinke said she took her bags of clothes to a relative’s home who was participating in the 127 Yard Sales last August. By October, she had an online clothing business up and running. Then, last month, she opened her brick and mortar storefront, Happily Ever Co., at 312A Wagner Ave. Schinke, who also works as a supply chain coordinator at BASF, said she used the money she made off the six bags of clothes she sold at the 127 Yard Sale to purchase her initial stock. After opening her online store, which can be found at happilyeverco.shop, she decided to take the next step. “It was great,” she said of her experience as a firsttime entrepreneur. “I decided to do more and also participated in some vendor events in Hamilton and West Carrollton.”

The name, Happily Ever Co., was a natural choice for Schinke. “It’s something I’ve been attached to,” explaining how she would often use the phrase on social media. Schinke hopes her boutique will be “a place to find your happily ever outfit.” Currently, Happily Ever Co. offers a variety of tops, dresses, sweaters, vests, leggings, purses and clutches, as well as jewelry/accessories. Clothing in sizes small through 3x is available online and in-store. “I’ve done a lot of research,” Schinke said, sharing how she went as far as to order the smallest shipment allowed to see if she liked the goods enough to sell. She’s also keeping her items at $50 or less, to make her customers’ purchases “reasonable.” Schinke, a 2008 Greenville High School graduate, said her clothing items, including the plus sizes, are trendy. “Everything in the store, I would wear,” she said. Check out the Happily Ever Co. by stopping in the storefront or on their website or Facebook page. Storefront hours are 5-8 p.m. Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and from 12-4 p.m. Sundays.

GREENVILLE – Gaylen Blosser was presented with the 2018 Kiwanis Citizen of the Year award Wednesday. “It was totally unexpected,” Blosser said of the surprise announcement. Kiwanis Vice President Dale Musser shared a brief history of Blosser’s life. “When he said ‘born in West Liberty,’ I figured I was the only one in the room” from there, Blosser said. Blosser has a long history of community service in Darke County. “I never felt like I was really serving the community. I was just doing what I enjoy – being around people. I never felt like I was doing anything special.” A U.S. Army veteran, Blosser served from 196870, which included a tour in Vietnam from 196970. In 1979, he moved from Amherst, Ohio to Darke County with his wife Becky and their family to manage PK Lumber in Union City.

While there, Blosser served with many organizations, including president of the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, Optimist Club and president of the Retail Merchants Association. Blosser then moved to Greenville where he owned and operated Greenville Lumber and Supply, as well as Englewood Lumber and Supply. He also built several homes in the Greenville area, with his company Diamondbeck, named in honor of his wife. Blosser currently works as sports editor for The Early Bird and Greenville Daily Advocate newspapers, which recently merged under AIM Media Midwest. He was recently appointed as a commissioner with the Darke County Veterans Services Commission, is a board member for both Greenville Kiwanis and the Darke County Crime Stoppers. Blosser also was honored in 2017 as the grand marshal for the Greenville High School Homecoming Parade and is a lifetime member of AMVETS, VFW, American Legion, and the Disabled

American Veterans. He’s an honorary Darke County Sheriff’s Patrol member and attends Northside Community Church. “Gaylen is very deserving of this award for everything he’s done in the community as well as for his service to our country,” said Kiwanis President Greg Zechar. Blosser accepted the award from Zechar and Musser during the regular Wednesday Kiwanis luncheon and meeting. “It’s quite an honor to be recognized by your

peers and to be introduced by my good friend Dale Musser,” Blosser said. Blosser and his wife Becky are parents of two children and grandparents of seven. Son Greg and his wife Charity reside in Columbus with their five children, Jack, Sam, Leonora, Violet and Ivy. Daughter Stacie and her husband Chris Ward reside in Greenville. Their two children are Cole and his wife Hannah of Cincinnati and Taylor, a student at Indiana Weslyan University.

Students learn ‘the cost of adulthood’ SUSAN HARTLEY

STAFF WRITER shartley@aimmediamidwest.com

NEW MADISON – Students from four Darke County schools gathered at Tri-Village High School on Wednesday to participate in Real Money, Real World. The activity provides students with hands-on experiences about the cost of living on their own and evaluating the consequences of their decisions. The program is hosted by the Darke County Education Service Center (ESC) and OSU Extension. Twenty-five students from Tri-Village, Mississinawa Valley, Ansonia and Arcanum school districts attended what has become an annual event in Darke County for the past six years, said Rhonda Williams, Darke County Extension Educator. Jodi Rinehart, special education supervisor at Darke County ESC says the opportunity to participate in Real Money, Real World activity teaches students “the cost of adulthood.” Students are given a scenario – occupation and family situation and are then given a figure equivalent to the average monthly salary for their

simulated occupation. Prior to attending Real Money, Real World, classroom lessons teach basic budgeting skills, including learning how to set up checking and savings accounts, pay bills, write checks, and balance a checkbook. During the activity, students take individual budget worksheets and experience the “real world” by talking with local businesses and organizations at booths set up around the auditorium. Purchasing a vehicle and insurance or making decisions concerning healthcare and childcare for their “family,” and learning the difference between necessities and luxuries are all part of Real Money, Real World. If they run into financial difficulty, they have the option of speaking with a financial planner. Tri Village freshman Michael Seger started out with a budget of $3,831. After making all his selections and purchases, he ended up with $1,000 left. “I liked it,” Seger said of the opportunity to experience Real Money, Real World. “I learned how to budget my money.” Mississinawa Valley freshman Duane Husted also enjoyed his experience.

Husted. who started out with a budget of $2,400, ended up with $92.05 remaining. “I learned how to manage my money,” he said. Bill Nellis, a supervisor for special education with the county’s ESC said the Real Money, Real World “was important” for the young students. “It gives them a chance to use their academic skills and transfer them into practical skills. Help them learn how to stay afloat without going into debt.” Ryan Class with Hittle Buick GMC in Greenville said as students came to purchase transportation, they learned quickly that the vehicle they chose depended upon the size of their family – not what they wanted. Class also

took time to explain the differences between purchasing a new or used car. Besides Hittle’s, local businesses who participated in Wednesday’s event included Family Health, Anthony Wayne (child care), Farmer’s State Bank, Greenville Federal. Booths for some purchases, including insurance, clothing and food purchases, utilities and housing, communication and entertainment were manned by school officials as well as Tri-Village SRO, and Darke County ESC staff. Students who ended up with money left over received a PayDay candy bar for their efforts. If they went over budget, they received a piece of Life Savers candy.

4-H CLUB NEWS Osgood Jolly

On Dec. 9, the Osgood Jolly 4-H Club had their last meeting of the year opened by President Kurt Meiring. The 4-H Pledge was started by Clarissa Hutchison, and the Pledge of Allegiance was started by Jaimee Hoelscher. Clarissa gave a treasurer’s report and we motioned to pay the bills. Everybody was asked to bring snacks for our Christmas party; we played Christmas and 4-H trivia, with the winners receiving a prize. In another game we played, each person would try to unwrap a gift while wearing a Santa hat and a large pair of silicon oven mitts (to make it more challenging) before next person could roll “doubles” with the dice. We went around the table several times before Abby Bergman got the present opened. Afterwards, we had a gift exchange of $10 which we played a dice game to see what present you received. Finally, we closed the meeting. The first meeting of next year will be Jan. 13, at 7 p.m. in the St. Nicholas Church basement. All new members are welcome. Lauren Meiring, reporter Ansonia 4-H

The Ansonia 4-H Club met Feb. 17 at Woodcrest Lanes in Union City. President Olivia Wright called the meeting to order and led the pledges. Roll call was taken by Molly Case, and the members responded with their favorite kind of chocolate. Then officer reports were given. In news, the 4-H Recognition & Spring Kick Off on March 3, 2019 at the All Season’s Place at 2 p.m., and the Hands Across Darke - Skating Party is on March 5, 2019 at The Skate Place in Greenville from 6:30-9 p.m. Members were told to wear their 4-H shirts to support their club at the Skating Party. The next meeting will be March 12 at the Ansonia Method-

ist Church and will begin at 7 p.m. Allison Warner, reporter Versailles Busy Beavers

The Versailles Busy Beavers held their meeting on Nov. 11, at McBo’s Bowling Alley. The meeting was called to order by President Brooke with 39 members and five advisors present. Roll call was taken by Ellie asking the members what they are thankful for. The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Corynn, and the 4-H Pledge was led by Ellie. The Secretary’s report was read and approved by McKayla with Jenna seconding the motion. The Treasure’s report was read and approved by Madyson with Katie seconding the motion. The members were asked how Chenowith Trails went and if they wanted to go again in future years. The club was informed that 2019 Family Guides are available online, and Deb will have them next meeting for the members. Marlene passed out Trash Bash paperwork to all the members because that is the club’s only fundraiser. Brooke talked about 4-H camp applications, and she also asked if there were any members interested in camp counselor for this coming year. Brooke read a description of the officer’s jobs and then asked who was interested in each office. The club was asked if they wanted to decorate a tree again at the Worch Library to spread the word about the club. Demonstrations were done by Anna showing how to braid hair, Drew showing how to inflate a ball or tire, and Corynn demonstrating how to plant seeds. There was no recreation because there was bowling before the meeting. The meeting was adjourned by Lexi with Lydia seconding the motion. The next meeting will be held on Sunday, December 9, 2018 at the Versailles Healthcare Center. The time has not yet been announced.

Greenville Art Guild offers landscape workshop GREENVILLE – The Greenville Art Guild is excited about celebrating our wonderful Darke County Parks this year. In order to encourage artists of all experience levels to explore the parks through painting, they are offering a workshop on painting a scene from one of the Darke County Parks from a photograph. Back by popular demand is local artist Phil Wood who will walk the group through the steps needed to take to set up and paint a landscape painting. This workshop will take place on Saturday, April 6,

Phil Wood is shown assisting a young artist at a recent workshop.

10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Bish Center on Ohio Street in Greenville. The Bish Center is the old Spencer’s Landscaping location, near the miniature golf and VFW.

No experience is necessary and all mediums are acceptable but oil or acrylic would be better suited to this workshop. Please bring your own painting sup-

plies, such as paint, brushes and a standing easel if you prefer. They will provide table easels if you need one. Phil will begin the workshop with a demo on how to begin a landscape painting from a photograph taken at one of the many Darke County Parks. You will have an opportunity to paint a photograph you have taken at one of the parks or choose a photograph taken by a member of the Guild. This member has graciously given his consent for anyone at this workshop to paint from his photo-

graphs. Phil will be available to assist you as you set up your own landscape painting. Phil will demonstrate how to continue painting a landscape and will continue to be available for assistance. Registration is required for this workshop and the cost is $40 for Guild members and $45 for nonmembers. This fee includes gourmet coffee and a catered

lunch. You may call Carolyn Armstrong at 937-526-4192 or Marilyn Banks at 937-423-0630 to register. However, your space will only be assured when they receive your check made out to the Greenville Art Guild. You may mail it to our PO Box 172, Greenville, Ohio 45331. Space is limited so don’t delay. Sign up now and celebrate spring and the Darke County Parks.
