Special Olympics Track & Field Memorial Day event produces a lot of winners Services planned BY RYAN BERRY MANAGING EDITOR GREENVILLE – Special Olympics athletes were forced to wait a few extra days before they could start earning ribbons in the 36th annual Darke County Special Olympics Track & Field events. Originally scheduled for May 9, rain postponed the event until the following Monday. Approximately 350 school-aged Special Olympics athletes and unified partners from every school district in the county converged on Harmon Field in Greenville to compete in running and walking events, slalom, relays with unified partners, boys and girls shot put, bean bag toss, long jump and softball throw. When not participating they could be seen socializing and cheering on their friends. Family members could also found be rooting their athlete on to victory or giving out hugs after they did their best in an event. Cindy Rose, volunteer

These athletes were getting ready to run the 50m Dash.

Special Olympics coordinator for Darke County, was joined by a host of volunteers to watch over the events, make sure the athletes made it to their assigned places, give out high-fives and pin ribbons on the winners. While many believe the track and field event is

the only competition for the athletes, Rose, who is in her 20th year with the organization, will tell you the fun continues all year long. In addition to track and field, Darke County Special Olympics teams and individuals also compete in basketball, softball, bowling

and equestrian events. Even though a few had minor sunburns, smiles graced the faces of nearly every athlete as they gathered their stuff and headed to the bus for the trip back to school. All of whom had bragging rights for being superb athletes.

Kies named AAA School Safety Patrol Advisor of the Year BY BOB ROBINSON ASSOC. EDITOR ANSONIA – Rick Kies asked the American Legion if they would put up a flag pole on the west side of the Ansonia school building. They did. Since then he’s gone out with his kids every day to raise and lower the flag. This is just one of a long list of the accolades retiring Ansonia PE teacher Rick Kies has received over the years. The latest was being named the AAA School Safety Patrol Advisor of the Year. Noting he had done Safety Patrol since he started at Ansonia in 1979, quiet mannered Kies said it was “quite an honor to have that for the whole Miami Valley.” He then switched the conversation to his kids. His safety patrol. “I have 35 active safety patrol students with 15 more on the waiting list,” he said. “Not many schools do that anymore; we’ve been doing it a long time.”

Kies said students have to take a written test to qualify for the patrol and only the top scoring students are put in charge. The patrol consists of two shifts serving every other week. With the waiting list, new students are installed as others remove themselves or are disqualified. The grade levels involved are four through six. In his Patrol Advisor of the Year essay, Kies summed up the program by telling of “one girl who just kept saying over and over” in her essay, “I help to keep kids safe!” As simple as it sounds, Kies noted, it is the “most important task of our (the safety patrol’s) existence and the kids know it. Our students are proud of what they do, and I have always been proud of them doing what they do so well.” Ansonia Elementary School Principal Krista Stump nominated Kies for the award listing as sup-

port the advisor’s strong belief in the value of the program, knowledge of traffic safety principles, leadership skills and dedication to the program. In her endorsement, Stump said “Rick builds leaders in how he runs the Safety Patrol program at Ansonia.” She told of a girl who was winner of “Patroller of the Year.” The honor and privilege of attending the banquet in Dayton raised her self-esteem many, many notches. Stump believes the leadership skills

and self-assurance helped in her academics, resulting in all ‘A’s in the school year’s first grading period last fall. “My passion is working with kids,” Kies said. “My elementary gym teacher Mr. Francis (at Ansonia) inspired me.” He noted one summer he coached Little League… “had some coaches who were kind of mean… I wanted to make sure this would be a good experience for kids.” He decided he wanted to be a gym teacher… again, a good experience for kids. All 2,600 of them. “I’ve worked with kids, the kids of some of those kids… even the grandkids of some of them.” He noted with his 35 years and the 24 years his grandmother, Juanita Harris, gave to Ansonia, there is “a personal family commitment to the District of 59 years that I am extremely proud of.” Kies will officially retire May 30.

grinned and said “our kids are cleaning up debris around the park here… and testing the equipment to make sure it’s safe for the kids this summer.” Moments later the students were back to pulling weeds and picking up tree limbs. Other students were raking leaves around the volleyball court of Ivester Park. “These are all freshmen and sophomores,” Grote said on May 9. “The whole high school is out serving the community. They’re washing cars, fire trucks… even organizing houses and cleaning out garages.” He pointed to a house in view near the park. A student was on a ladder cleaning leaves out of a home’s rain gutter. “It’s really nice for the kids to get out, have fun and do something for the community.” Work stopped momentarily when one of the students saw a frog. They played with it a few minutes then let it go and got back to work.

In another area of the park, students were trimming bushes and pulling weeds around the gazebo. They worked under the watchful eyes of AHS group leader Kathy Pugh and garden club members Anita Troutwine and Abby Cutright. “The kids are doing a good job, good workers,” they said. “They know what they are doing. It’s wonderful for the community and the kids are involved in community service. They seem to be enjoying it.” Another area where students were hard at work was the swimming pool. The clubhouse was getting a new coat of paint. Students had been there about an hour and a half. One student with paint covered hands said it would take a few days to get it off… she wasn’t worried about it. It also had looked like rain a little earlier… fresh paint? She shrugged her shoulders. “If it rains it rains,” she said. “Nothing we can do about it.” And went back to work.

A lucky 7 dice table was surrounded most of the evening by Casino Night enthusiasts. (Bob Robinson photo)

Annual Casino Night raises $2,500 for Cancer Assn. BY BOB ROBINSON ASSOC. EDITOR GREENVILLE – “Blackjack! The win pays double… here’s your two grand!” Two blue Monopoly-sized $1000 bills slid across the table to the lucky player who hit her Ace with a face

card; in this case a king. On the other side of the room every slot machine was in action. In the back the roulette wheel turned throughout the evening with yellow, green and blue bills exchanging hands after each rotation. It was for a good cause… the Cancer Association of Darke County. According to Dori Howdieshell about 85 people attended the annual Casino Night event May 9 at VFW Post 7262. The previous year’s event raised about $2,500 for the association. While the final count isn’t finished, it was no different this year. Howdieshell estimated another $2,500 was the payout for the evening of fun and games. “Everybody left with a $10 or more gift certificate, or a $10 or more gift,” she said. “This couldn’t have happened without the generosity of so many of our merchants.” Carol Reck won the top prize, a carpet from Wholesale Carpet Outlet in Gettysburg.

Retired Darke County Auditor Janice Anderson plays to win on one of the Cancer Association’s Casino Night slot machines. (Bob Robinson photo)

“Thanks to everyone for attending and supporting the evening,” she added. The Cancer Association’s annual Casino Night typically runs two or three Blackjack tables, slot machines, a “lucky 7 dice” table, cake walk and more. New this year was a basketball shoot and bowling game. Attendees, in addition to a door prize based upon their winnings for the evening, are fed hot dogs,

pizza from Marcos and a variety of snacks and finger foods. The goal is win the most money of the evening for the top prize. Volunteers are not shy about helping those who keep their events busy… one blackjack dealer told his players the house would pay double on the last hand of the night. That hand turned out to be a ‘double-down’ on two aces, both resulting in a Blackjack. The ‘House’ got wiped out.

Rogation Sunday at St. Paul’s Church

GREENVILLE – St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 201 S. Broadway, Greenville, will be celebrating the age old tradition of Rogation Sunday with the blessing of plants, seeds, animals, dirt from fields, tractors, plows and hands. All who farm or plant gardens are invited to attend the blessing at St. Paul’s Episcopal on May 25, 10:30 a.m. It is a day they pray for the local farming community asking God’s blessings for a bountiful harvest and temperate growing season. Rogation Sunday is the day when the Church has traditionally offered prayer for God’s blessings on the fruits of the earth and the labors of those who produce our food. The word “rogation” is from the Latin rogare, “to ask.” Historically, the Rogation Days (the three days before Ascension Day) were a period of fasting and abstinence, beseeching God’s blessing on the crops for a bountiful harvest. Few today directly derive their livelihood from

Hollansburg Summer Lunch Program planning fourth year HOLLANSBURG – The Hollansburg Summer Lunch Program has started planning for its fourth year. This year they will again serve two hot meals a week to the people in Hollansburg and the surrounding area. In 2013, the program reports an average attendance for each meal was 27. This program is supported by the Beech Grove Church of the Brethren, Cedar Grove Church of the Brethren and several families in the Hollansburg area. Forty-five percent of Ohio children were eligible for free or reducedpriced lunches this past school year. Ohio is in the top ten states with high “food insecurity” households. The Hollansburg program is helping a small percentage of these children right here in our neighborhoods. The children will enjoy a hot meal on

Mondays and Wednesdays served at the Hollansburg Community Center. In addition to the meals, the New Madison Library is providing an educational program every Wednesday. The library team not only shares stories with the children, but provides a coordinating craft. This gives the children something to look forward to and a time to socialize with their peers. New this summer, the library team is planning to bring books with them to Hollansburg for families to check out, enabling children to continue improving their reading skills. Tracy and Heather Brown of Hollansburg have been part of the Lunch Program from the beginning. They live in Hollansburg and have a concern for the children in the area. They are planning a 5 Day Club

with the Dayton Chapter of Child Evangelism Fellowship. This will be the fourth year for the 5 Day Club. The exact dates of the club will be announced soon. During the five days of club, the Summer Lunch Program will provide a meal each day to participants. In addition to private donations, the Hollansburg Summer Lunch Program has received food items and cash from the following business: Hunt’s meats, New Madison Kiwanis, New Madison Market and Mini Mart, Friends of the New Madison Library, teachers and students at Tri-Village school and Hollansburg American Legion Auxiliary. If you would like to make a donation to this program, or for more information, contact Pam Bevins at 997-4271, Tony Price at 997-3675, or Heather Brown at 997-2209.

Thank You We would like to recognize the residents of Greenville School District for the passage of the bond issue last August and the recent passage of the Renewal Permanent Improvement Levy. On behalf of the past, present and future students, classified and certified staff, administration and board of education; we thank the community for the very positive support the past 9 months. The community has provided the school district with means to renovate and build to make our district better in the educational process. THANKS for your support as we move forward and upward as a school district and community of PRIDE. Greenville Board of Education Members: David Madden, Dave Ernst, Brad Gettinger, Jim Sommer, Fred Matix -----------------------------------------------------Sorry Editor, I have placed in jeopardy the reputation of several fine organizations and the membership. Now I ask for forgiveness for the harm that I have caused. I am the only one responsible for these actions. These organizations trusted me to represent their causes with the upmost responsibility and decorum and I failed in my attempts to solve issues entrusted to me. My zeal for the causes, which they advocate, places their organizations in this poor example of my actions. The Annie Oakley Committee and the Free and Accepted Masons I attempted to bring a rodeo into Darke County and their trust was validated by my ambition to promote this. This has cause great harm to the committee and the membership of the masons. I strongly support the causes of these great organizations. However, I have crossed the line in the sand and went beyond the realm of responsibility. With regret to the Darke County Agriculture Society I am sorry for the intrusion and I am asking for your forgiveness and understanding. To all the institutions that I contacted please accept my humble admission of guilt for not representing these fine organizations with the decorum they deserved. Please do not hold them in any way responsible for my actions. I am a dreamer and a joke with little understanding of the real world as I recently have been told. To my Family, I ask for your forgiveness for my follies and seek humbly forgiveness from God for these transgressions. It is this to me is the greatest of all the example of misguided zeal of my failure. To God and my salvation in Jesus Christ is my trust. I do believe that history is a record of the future and the failure to understand the past events allows the present to repeat those failures. I failed to see the future by ignoring this history. Take Care and may God Bless you all. Kirby Clark Greenville

Compromise keeps Tesla in Ohio COLUMBUS—State Representative Jim Buchy (R-Greenville) has announced the Ohio House passed Senate Bill 260, legislation that reinforces a state law governing automobile manufacturers and dealers. Senate Bill 260 was a response to a recent action by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles to grant a motor vehicle dealer license to Tesla Motors, which sells its vehicles from companyowned stores, as opposed to through a network of dealerships. State law does not permit an auto manufacturer to sell its vehicles at retail without being licensed as a dealer, essentially requiring auto manufacturers to contract through dealership networks. “Automobile dealers are a very important part of Ohio’s economy, and we are fortunate to have an innovative company like Tesla Motors interested in expanding business in Ohio,” Buchy said. “The spirit of compromise displayed in this

situation shows promise for Ohio’s continued economic growth, and reminds existing business that their service to the state is valued and advertises to innovators that Ohio is open for business.��� Under the legislation, Tesla Motors is able to continue operating its existing sales locations in Columbus and Cincinnati, as well as open one more location in Ohio. SB 260 prohibits the Registrar of Motor Vehicles from issuing additional licenses to manufacturers selling directly to consumers, with one exception: A manufacturer may operate up to three dealerships in Ohio if the company was selling or distributing allelectric motor vehicles as of January 1. The exception expires if a manufacturer sells its motor vehicle operations or if the manufacturer produces any vehicles that are not all-electric. The bill now heads to Governor Kasich for his signature.

I’ll be the responsible one Grumpy Side of 60 by Bob Robinson Associate Editor

“It’s subitis.” Huh? “Subitis… what students do when they have a sub… Mr. Robinson, I have a headache. Mr. Robinson, I have a stomach ache. Mr. Robinson, I don’t feel good.” Yep. Got all that. “My sore hurts…” The sore looks like it’s two or three days old; in fact it’s pretty much healed. “The nurse can give me an ice pack…” Sorry, buddy. I can’t see anything. Get a paper towel, soak it and rub it on your arm. That will help. “I really don’t feel good. Can I go to the nurse?” Sorry, sweety. You don’t have a temperature. Put your head down and rest for a while. She returns to her desk using her best “I really don’t feel good” or “I really am suffering” walk. Funny… come recess time they all seem to be

suddenly cured of whatever ails them. Subitis. I’d been subbing for nearly three years and they finally told me its ‘clinical’ name? Or did they make it up just for me? They did say it happens to all subs. They also know I’m a softy when it comes to kids. And of course, the kids know it, too. My first year at Woodland I allowed nearly a third of my class to go to the nurse once. She (the nurse) was not a happy lady. I’ve managed to get it down to a dull roar since then. “Try being mean.” I can’t do that. “No, I don’t mean “mean” mean… stern. Strict! How about strict? Think you can do that?” I’ll try. Third and fourth graders at East; fifth and sixth graders at South. That’s another story. They’ve been in the ‘system’ for a few years and most know they are there to learn. Have fun while they’re at it, but still learn. I’m still a softy. But, when I

need to get control of a talkative class, I know all I have to do is yell once! I immediately have everyone’s attention. Probably including a few in the hall or the rooms nearby. For the one or two who don’t get the message? They get a oneon-one discussion. The second time a dirty look and/or a promise they’re heading to the office… If necessary, strike three you’re out (of the class and heading to the office). So far I haven’t had to use strike three. K-2 students have a pretty good idea they’re there to learn but sometimes it’s difficult to get a handle on how it works. “Fun” is more fun. My approach has always been “We’re going to have fun while we’re learning, aren’t we?” Without exception that introduction gets a rousing “yay” from the students. It also seems to make focus and concentration more difficult. The “fun” part sticks in their minds while the “learning” part seems to get lost somewhere.

I realize I have to do better. I have to be… uh… well… strict. No matter how much it might hurt. Why? Because this summer I’ll no longer just be “subbing” for a day. I’ll be tutoring little ones (and maybe a few older ones) in their challenge areas; mostly reading. I won’t be just trying to follow teacher lesson plans for a few hours. I’ll be the one responsible for success. I am fully aware of the tremendous responsibility this entails. Parents, administrators, literary specialists, Friends of the Greenville Library and the Woodland PTA have put their trust in me to help kids who need help this summer. I’m already working and studying to learn the skills I need and earn that trust. Experts have graciously made themselves available anytime I need help. Parents or guardians wishing more information can contact their child’s school, or once summer has arrived, the library.

Capital Budget: Providing funding for local projects The state’s capital budget bill—House Bill 497—was recently reviewed by the state legislature in order to determine appropriate capital projects to be funded by bonded dollars over the course of the next few years. The capital budget is a collaborative process that involves state and local leaders and the economic development community which balances the state’s need for fiscal restraint. The funding for these projects is provided by bond money that is established in a fund for the purpose of public improvements in Ohio. In western Ohio we were fortunate enough to have funding for many projects approved because of the bill’s passage. For the four counties that I represent, funding totaled more than $13 million. The Progressive Agricultural Convention and Educational Center (PACE) will be built on the Mercer County Fairgrounds. It will be a major advancement, providing state-of-the-art labs and learning space for the Wright State Lake Campus agricultural program and will open up the fairgrounds for other events that may bring additional tourism to the region. I am also pleased that the 4-H kids in Shelby County are one step closer to having a new bathroom for their use while they are working hard with their 4-H and FFA projects during the Shelby County Fair. This is a project spearheaded by local groups and the

state has been able to help them with funding for the completion of the project. Funding for the construction of a Native American Bowery has also been approved. Not unlike the Native American Peace Council House, which was built nearly 10 years ago, it will be built in the Greenville Park in order to educate local residents and their children about Native Americans in the area and their involvement in the settlement of western Ohio. It will commemorate the 2nd Treaty of Greenville and the War of 1812 Bicentennial. Parks are very important to the people in my district. They represent a place to come together and they provide a connection between the residential community and small business, which spurs economic growth. Because of HB 497 many community projects will advance forward with state support such as restoration projects at the Historic Sidney Theatre and Memorial Hall in Greenville.

In addition, two advanced manufacturing training facilities received money for construction in the 84th District. These facilities will provide a place for local workers to advance their skills, giving local companies an improved workforce to hire from and enabling companies to enroll existing workers in retraining programs to provide promotion and advancement within their companies. None of these projects would have been possible

without the hard work of my colleagues Senators Keith Faber and Cliff Hite and local State Representatives Richard Adams, Tony Burkley, and John Adams. All of these projects help Ohioans by promoting the arts and improving the infrastructure of the community, as just a few examples. Please stay in touch and provide your input on the issues of the day by taking my legislative survey at tinyurl.com/ buchymay2014.

Spring cleaning tips for the grill It doesn’t matter whether you barbecue year-round, or put the barbecue away for the winter, it’s always a good idea to clean it thoroughly once or twice a year. Take a look these tips to make the job easier: What you will need: A steel putty knife; a heavy duty vacuum; a brass bristle barbecue brush; plus cleaning supplies including a degreaser for heavy grime, a glass cleaner with ammonia for exterior

cleaning, and stainless steel cleaner/polish for finishing touches. First step: Attach your barbecue to the propane tank or natural gas connection. Use a mixture of dish soap and warm water to coat all connections to test for leaks -- any bubbling at connections means there is a leak. Stop everything and consult your local barbecue dealer for more help. If your barbecue passes the leak test, remove the grids and heat medium. If possible, remove the burners, inspect them for damage and blockages -- a piece of wire with some cloth on the end is an excellent way to clear blockages from the burner. Clean: Re-install the burners, heat media, and cooking grids. Light

becue to at least 400 F and season your cooking grids with olive or grapeseed oil. This will protect your cooking grids and can prevent food from sticking. Take a minute to inspect your barbecue’s exterior for any other damage and follow the above process to clean your side burner as well. Check wheels and casters for any damage. Whether your barbecue is brand new or older than your children and pets, a semi-annual cleaning is highly recommended to ensure years of trouble free use. Further information about care and maintenance -- as well as local barbecue retailers for parts and service -- is online at www.broilkingbbq.com.

How sleep affects work (and vice versa) People often discuss how sleep -- and often lack thereof -- can affect work performance. However, not as many people are studying how work impacts the ability to sleep. Research from the University of Pennsylvania published in SLEEP found that work time is the largest influence on how long an individual sleeps on both work and leisure days. It’s not just in North America, either. A 2005 study found that 36 percent of women in Finland had trouble sleeping at least once a week that year; 27 percent of men in the study said the same. But just six years prior in 1999, only 26 percent of women and 20 percent of men were reporting sleep problems once a week in the country. Experts suggest the reason for this drastic change can be attributed to both occupational stress and abnormal working hours. Similar to how stress affects sleep, work has profound implications on sleep as well. When their schedule calls for it, shift workers must al-

your barbecue and let it heat up to 200 F. Turn everything off and let it cool until it is just warm to the touch. Brush the grids thoroughly on both top and bottom. Remove the grids and set aside. Use your grill brush to remove any debris on the heat media, remove them to expose the burners and cook box. Using your putty knife, scrape the sides of the cook box to remove any caked-on debris. If your barbecue has a removable grease tray, take it out with the debris. If you have a closed-bottom cook box, use your heavy duty vacuum to clean up all the loose ash and debris in the cook box. Quick Tip: Re-install the grease tray, heat medium, and cooking grids. Heat your bar-

ter their body’s natural circadian rhythm in order to switch from sleeping at night to day. Some employees work long hours with only short bursts of sleep available before they have to report back to work the next day. According to the Better Sleep Council, sleep deprivation currently costs U.S. businesses nearly $150 billion annually in absenteeism and lost productivity. It may pay for employees and workers to collaborate on the best strategies for improving morale and performance by matching working hours with sleeping habits. This way each gets the best of both worlds. Not getting enough sleep can impact personal health in many ways, including: * Elevated risk of getting major illnesses, including cancer, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. * Inability to concentrate or poor decisionmaking. * Putting the body in a state of high alert, increasing the production of stress hormones. * Weight gain, either through stress or eating at times when the body is not accustomed to eating. * Affecting skin and other tissue appearance. * Poor reaction times, which can lead to accidents. * Increased risk of de-

veloping mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety. While there is no magic number, sleep experts say a person needs between 7 and 9 hours of sleep every night to function at his or her prime. Individuals should also make efforts to improve their quality of sleep. Here are a few ways to do so. * Invest in a new mattress if yours is old and no longer comfortable. This will alleviate twisting and turning -- and potentially waking -from an uncomfortable mattress. * Keep the bedroom for sleep and intimacy only. If there are stressors or stimulating things in the room, like a computer or television, they may impact sleep. * Limit caffeine intake, particularly several hours before bedtime. * Maintain a regular sleep-wake schedule each and every day -even on the weekend. * If you are having trouble falling or staying asleep, consult with a doctor. Insomnia is very common, and there are different treatment options that can help you get rest. Sleep and work are often intertwined and can impact each other. Because sleep is vital for maintaining health, it’s important to strike a balance so that sleep can be achieved.

Simple ways to find more time in your day Workdays have a way of flying by, and many men and women find themselves wondering where the time went at the end of a typical day. A workday filled with meetings and the obligations of a career is only half the story for working parents, who upon leaving the office must manage the obligations of their families. With such hectic schedules, it’s no wonder so many working parents find themselves wishing there was more time in the day. While there may be no way to make a day 25 hours long, the following time-saving measures can increase the time you have to unwind and relax at the end of the night. * Save those leftovers. At the end of a good meal, leftover food will either find its way to the garbage can or be wrapped up and stored in the refrigerator. Men and women looking to save time should embrace the latter approach to leftovers, turning them into an extra meal for later in the week. Saving and reheating leftovers from just one meal per week saves the time it takes to prepare and cook a fresh meal while providing a welcome weekly respite for the family cook from the chore of making dinner. * Make better use of your lunch break. Men and women who aren’t accustomed to working lunches can use their daily lunch hour to run errands. While using a lunch hour to pick up some dry cleaning or visit the grocery store to get something for that night’s dinner can save time, even those errands that don’t require leaving the office can be tended to during your

lunch hour. Use your lunch hour to pay some bills and balance your checkbook or email your child’s teacher about an upcoming assignment. Tackling such errands during the daytime can free up more time to spend with your family at night. * DVR your favorite television programs. Many households have embraced the DVR, which, along with streaming, has revolutionized the way we watch television. Rather than sitting down on the couch to watch your favorite shows when they initially air, use your DVR to record them and watch them when you get the chance. This can make your nights less hectic as you won’t be hurrying to complete chores before your favorite show airs.And recording your favorite shows also allows you to fast forward through the commercials, saving you roughly 15 minutes for every hour of television you watch. * Exercise in the morning. Devotees of the morning workout often note how working out in the morning does wonders for their energy levels throughout the day. But working out in the morning also frees up time to tackle household chores or work projects in the evening. Of course, that extra time in the evening also can be used to unwind and relax from a long day at the office. Many men and women find themselves pressed for time as the week progresses. But there are several ways to make more efficient use of your time and enjoy more free time as a result. EL146222

PCDL survey online EATON – As part of an ongoing commitment to serve the needs of Preble County, the Preble County District Library is conducting a survey. The survey is six questions, and can be completed online or at any of the seven branch libraries. The standard for Ohio Public Libraries is to conduct a community-wide survey at least once every five years to ensure the library is meeting the

needs of each community it serves. The PCDL’s previous community survey was conducted in 2009. The survey is now available to take online, and there are also paper surveys available at each of the seven branches and at the Preble County Room. The PCDL strives for excellence in Ohio Public Library Standards, and the survey will help to pinpoint the needs of the community as a whole, as

well as needs specific to the communities of each of the seven branches. Each community within Preble County has its own needs, and the survey will allow the library to see how to improve each of its locations. To take the survey online, visit https://www. surveymonkey.com/s/ N77YTDV or visit any library branch to fill out a paper copy of the survey.

OBITUARIES

Cemeteries and restoration ARCANUM – To continue preservation engaging the Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society offers the following reminders available from various web sites. Ohio Cemetery Laws Preserving cemeteries, in Ohio, is indeed the law! See the following Ohio Revised Code sections: #517.21 Abandonment; #2909.05 Vandalism; #2927.11 Desecration. We believe that they are sacred and historic sites to be preserved. They contain the remains of our earliest settlers - those who came to the “wilderness” that became Ohio - and they are in need of protection for many different reasons. They are threatened by the weather, by time, and by something even more dangerous man. Old cemeteries are markers of human history. They are links to family we never knew, they are sources of history and they tell us a great deal about ourselves culturally and socially. Sometimes it is the only record we have of an individual-their recording of the birth and death of the individual and sometimes who their parents or spouse were. So that’s why it is important to educate ourselves and take care to restore these crumbling and illegible stones before it’s too late. Education: Read the Cemetery laws. If you have stones on your property do not remove stones or build over the area. Do not take stones to use in your garden. Once the stone is removed the location is gone and a family may never know where their ancestor was buried. Seek permission of property owner: It is recommended to check with your township or local government first as to procedures. If the area and stones cannot be maintained and restored, then check with authorities about the removal of remains to a nearby cem-

Shown is Beech Grove Cemetery in Butler Township. The cemetery is well maintained, but stones need re-setting and show black lichen growth.

etery as well as the stones. Document stones: Before removing or doing any type of cemetery work, stones should be documented by recording the engraving from the stones as well as photographing each stone. A map of the formations should also be drawn. Restoration of cemetery and stones: If the cemetery is abandoned and you wish to restore, contact the property owner or current cemetery caretaker. Attend restoration of stones classes or workshops and read current and reliable information before beginning. Set up a plan and decide level of decay of the stones and cemetery. Determine what jobs are best left to the professionals and which are feasible tasks to perform individually or as a group. If a large project, enlist a group of people - this can be a big job. Hire reputable companies for replacing or mending broken stones. Some cemeteries may be overgrown and need brush removed before a plan of action can be made and the situation summarized. Others may need stone washing to remove moss and lichen growth. We do not recommend doing this without proper training by the National Parks Service. The following are issues to be considered. • Restoring fallen over headstones • Restoring misplaced headstones • Mending broken gravestones and statues

• Weeding and replanting • Moss and lichen removal • General tidy-up • Seek government and municipal grants for restorative work. • Assessment of the costs to do restorative work Maintenance: Have a plan to maintain the cemetery after the restoration project is completed. Also, publish the documentation or donate copies of the recordings of the stones and cemetery to the local historical society. This would be a good project for Boy Scots, 4-H Clubs, School, or local civic groups. Consider having an unveiling ceremony complete with a plaque marking and publicity once work is completed. Post information online to attract history buffs and link this with the local community’s tourism industry. Heritage tourism is a fast-growing industry and restored cemeteries are a definite part of such touristic activities Web Sites for Info: http://ww2.oiohistory. org/resource/histpres/ yourtown/cemetery.htm http://saveagrave.net/ cleaning-a-gravestone Gravestone Guardians of Ohio: “saveagrave. com:” Cemetery Laws: http:// codes.ohio.gov/orc/517 http://www.wikihow. com/Restore-an-Abandoned-Cemetery http://www.progenealogists.com/tombstonecare.htm

GREENVILLE POLICE BEAT

Onset of spring marred by drug overdose and violence On May 5 police responded to McDonald’s parking lot, 1237 Sweitzer St., regarding a possible drug overdose. Spencer Niece was lying on the ground outside of McDonald’s and did not appear to be breathing. He was surrounded by three males who had been with him shortly before he overdosed. Greenville Rescue arrived and was able to revive Spencer, who was then transported to Wayne Hospital to be treated. The three males, Preston Keen, Tyler Boxwell and Zachary Fellers all said they did not know what happened to Niece. They had gotten food and were in their vehicle when Niece lost consciousness. Police searched the area and found an empty heroin capsule next to their vehicle. A little later an employee said she had found drug abuse instruments in the bathroom. In a trash bin under the sink police found a one dollar bill, two syringes, one empty heroin capsule and Keen’s ID next to them. The employee also advised she had seen the four subjects going in and out of the bathroom for up to 45 minutes. Keen said he didn’t know how his ID got in the trash; he was cited for drug abuse instruments. At the hospital Niece admitted taking heroin but would not say where he got it. ASSAULT/DISORDERLY On May 4 police observed a large fight taking place behind Danny’s Place, 308 S. Broadway. One defendant, Chelsey Venrick, was lying on the ground with her boyfriend, Jarod Sharp, trying to calm her down. Venrick had blood on her face and arm. The other defendant involved in the fight, Jessica Denham, had a cut on her lip and a bloody nose. Witnesses stated the two got into a verbal argument in the bathroom, adding Denham pushed Venrick to the floor. When Venrick and Sharp left the bar a physical fight took place. Denham told officers Venrick and Sharp attacked her and her husband, Joshua Denham. Venrick and Sharp told officers Joshua Denham punched Sharp in the face and began choking him which started the altercation between Venrick and Jessica. All four refused treatment by EMS, but Venrick went to Wayne Hospital after leaving the scene. Witness statements led to Venrick and Jessica Denham being cited for Disorderly Conduct and Joshua Denham cited for Assault. On May 5 police responded to 825 E. Water St. regarding an assault. The victim, Brandon Powell, was on the back porch of the residence with a bloody lip and nose. Police also observed Amber Miller, who resides at the residence, standing near him with a bloody lip and Josh Denham standing near them yelling. EMS was requested to treat Powell’s injuries.

DOMESTIC On May 10 police responded to the alley behind 310 Armstrong St. regarding Daniel Bush hitting a female. Bush attempted to run when he saw police but was apprehended and held in the back of the cruiser while police spoke with witnesses and the victim – also a defendant – Kimberly Frantz. Witnesses said Frantz started the altercation by striking Bush three times in the face. Bush allegedly retaliated by pushing her against a wall and hitting her head. The witnesses said Frantz struck Bush in the face again after which Bush struck Frantz in the face. The witnesses wrote out statements. Bush was placed under arrest for felony domestic and transported to the Darke County jail. Frantz was issued a citation for domestic violence. On May 11 police responded to a domestic dispute on Markwith

Avenue. The victim was crying and had a cut under her eye and a small cut on her back. The defendant, Daniel Griggs, allegedly was angry over the victim going out the previous night. The victim also said he was intoxicated. Griggs admitted they were involved in a confrontation but denied anything physical. According to the report he had an odor of alcoholic beverage on him. Griggs was arrested for domestic violence and transported to Darke County jail. He has a previous conviction which makes this charge a felony. On May 8 police were dispatched to Tillman Avenue and made contact with the victim, standing in the street crying. She had red marks and scrapes around her neck and forehead, an egg size bump on her forehead, bruising on her forearms and the right side of her face was swollen. The victim and John Plush had dinner and drinks that evening. After they got home he allegedly got angry over a cellphone charger and began hitting her in the face, knocking her down. She said he continued hitting her and began choking her; then kicking and stomping on her. She was able to scratch his face and get to her feet.

He took her cellphone and went to bed. The victim did not have another cell phone so she contacted a friend on Facebook who then contacted police. Greenville Township Rescue transported the victim to Wayne ER. Police were advised Plush had a CCW permit and consequently made contact with him by yelling from the front door. Plush initially said he didn’t know why they were there but eventually admitted to an “altercation.” He was arrested and transported to Darke County jail, charged with Felony Domestic Violence due to a previous conviction. CPO VIOLATION On May 6 police were dispatched to Ark Avenue regarding a CPO violation in which the defendant, Robert Dancer, was allegedly sending harassing text messages to the victim who had a Civil Protection Order on him.

County jail. AGGRAVATED MENACING On May 8 police responded to 5438 St. Rt. 49 Apt. 12 regarding a male with a knife. The victim, David Massey, along with his daughter and a friend, were sitting outside. Madonna Alderman parked at her residence; Massey’s dog went over to her and she returned the dog. Madonna’s husband Daniel Alderman allegedly became angry because Madonna and Massey used to date, got a knife from his residence and threatened Massey, allegedly telling him he was a dead man. Madonna pulled her husband back inside their residence but Massey called police fearing physical harm. Daniel was arrested for aggravated menacing and transported to Darke County jail. OVI On May 10 police observed Reymond Sargenti operating a vehicle on Russ Road at North Ohio. The vehicle’s registration expired in 2009. He was stopped and asked for driver’s license and proof of insurance. Sargenti’s movements were slow and the officer smelled an alcoholic beverage on him. He had slurred speech and red, glassy eyes, and admitted having a “few beers to drink.” He did poorly on the field so-

briety tests and was placed under arrest for OVI (Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated). Sargenti submitted to the breath test and recorded a .130. He was cited and released to his wife. SCHOOL BUS On May 8 a school bus going northbound on 200 block of Ft. Jefferson Ave. was stopped with stop sign and red lights activated. A student was attempting to load onto the bus. A vehicle going southbound passed the bus. It was operated by Matthew Oliver, who admitted passing but didn’t think he should have to stop due to the angle of the intersection they were at. He was issued a citation for passing a stopped school bus. EARLY BIRD POLICY The Greenville Police Beat is prepared from public records available at the Greenville Police Department.

GREENVILLE – During the month of June, Art at the Mill will feature inviting clay vessels produced by Xenia artist Geno Luketic paired with Kathryn Pitstick’s nature prints. The exhibit at historic Bear’s Mill opens on May 30 with a reception featuring hors d’oeuvres and drinks from 6-9 p.m.; the artists will speak briefly about their creations, methods, and inspiration at 7 p.m. “Kathryn uses many different methods to produce her beautiful prints which inspire a sense of joyous calm, while Geno’s pots possess a quiet power that invites touching and curiosity,” said Julie Clark, retail manager and gallery coordinator for Bear’s Mill. The exhibit will remain on display through Sunday, June 22. Baldwin Wallace College graduate Geno Luketic says that he seeks to create work that is “honest in function and form, with lasting life, quiet strength, and the spirit of clay.” Since most of his pieces are of an intimate personal scale fitting comfortably in one’s hands, viewers are enticed to engage with the pottery through touch. Geno believes that he works close to the line between the familiar and the new, his apparently functional forms revealing surprising details upon closer inspection. “I want these pieces to gently enrich life,” the potter stated. Kathryn Pitstick, whose body of work encompasses printmaking, painting, and photos, states she’s inspired to work from nature because of the emotion and energy she receives from her surroundings. “I stand in awe of the rhythm, interaction and vastness in plein air en-

Pre-Diabetes class offered on May 21 GREENVILLE – Prediabetes means you have blood sugar levels that are higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes. However, pre-diabetes increases the risk of developing diabetes. Uncontrolled blood sugar can damage your body over time, and increases the risk of developing complications including heart disease, stroke, eye disease, nerve damage, and kidney disease. Most people with prediabetes do not have symptoms. Your doctor can test your blood to find out if your blood sugar levels are higher than normal. If you are 45 years old or older, your doctor may recommend that you be tested for pre-diabetes, espe-

cially if you are overweight. A weight loss of 5 to 10% of your starting weight can prevent or delay diabetes. You can lose weight be cutting back on the amount of calories and fat you eat and increasing your physical activity. Wayne HealthCare would like to help you manage your pre-diabetes. To learn lifestyle changes you can incorporate to improve your health, consider attending a Pre-Diabetes Class on May 21. The class will be held from 9-11 a.m. in the Third Floor Conference Room at Wayne HealthCare. The cost to attend the class is $10. Pre-registration is required. Call 547-5750 to register.

Collingsworths play benefit for DC Pregnancy Help Center BY CLINTON RANDALL STAFF WRITER GREENVILE - Over 600 people filled the Lighthouse Christian Center April 25 to enjoy live gospel music from national recording artists The Collingsworth Family. The concert was held to benefit the Darke County Pregnancy Help Center, 105 W. Third St., Greenville, which offers aid and education to expecting teens and adult women throughout the county. According to board member Low-

ell Lavy, the center has a program called Earn While You Learn that helps expecting mothers afford infant care items while being educated on how to care for their child independently once they give birth. The organization also holds an annual fundraiser called the Baby Bottle Campaign to help offset costs of the program. There are also different private and business donors to help with expenses as well. The April 25 concert was a success, according to Lavy. Not only did the

center raise some much needed money, 92 packages of diapers were also donated that night. The Collingworth Family, from New Richmond, entertained the crowd with their world class gospel music. To learn more about the Collingworth’s visit their website www. thecollingsworthfamily. com.

Edison students educate sixth graders on drugs and bullying GREENVILLE – Sixteen Edison Community College students headed to Greenville South Middle School two separate mornings, April 30 and May 7, to talk to sixth graders about two major problems adolescents face at that age: bullying (including cyber bullying and social media safety) and drug awareness. South teachers were asked to critique the college students; suggestions were made which helped the presenters, but all were pleased, especially considering they gave up a large piece of their class instruction time. The sixth graders were engaged with each group, asking and answering questions throughout the presentations. South Middle School Principal Rhonda Schaar was appreciative of the effort by the students, noting it was a great message as well as an application of the standards for sixth grade students. “Public speaking as a standard for sixth graders and bullying, as well

as drug awareness, are very important topics for middle school students,” she said. “We are grateful they (the Edison students) chose Greenville Middle School for this partnership experience.” Schaar also thanked the Edison speech students in her newsletter communication with parents and her Middle School report to the Greenville City School Board. The Edison students were completing a course extra credit assignment for Communications 121, a public speaking class. Course instructor, Bob Robinson, said one of the challenges of the class is the students spend an entire semester getting to know each other. When they give a speech to their classmates they have achieved their “comfort zone” over time. Giving a speech to a new or different audience is an important aspect of the course, but difficult to achieve within the regular 16-week timeframe. “So I made it an ex-

tra credit project,” Robinson said. “I first offered it last fall. It was well received by Mrs. Schaar and the teachers at South and I discovered it wasn’t really that important as an extra credit project… most of the students participating already had an A in the class. They did it because it was a new challenge.” Robinson noted the same thing this semester. Well over half of the student project volunteers already had A’s in the course.

The Edison students giving the bullying, cyber bullying and social media safety presentation were Jordan Whitenack, Dane Blumenstock, Logan Nelson, Mary Francis, Shanelle Smith, Hudson Rich, Grant Brown, Madison Myers, Peyton Kreitzer, Karlee Lennen and Kara Lucas. The students giving the drug awareness presentation were Lauren Rammel, Susan Boston, Ashton Shellabarger, Dylan Hackney and Christian Pressler.

PIQUA – Karen Rafinski, Ph. D., has been appointed Interim President of Edison Community College. Edison’s Board of Trustees made the announcement after a special meeting on May 14. Rafinski will be interim president while the Board works to hire a replacement for outgoing President Dr. Cristobal Valdez, who is leaving to assume the presidency at Central Wyoming College in Riverton, Wyoming. “The college is fortunate to have been able to hire an excellent college administrator to help us during this transitional period. Dr. Karen Rafinski is universally respected and well liked,” said James Thompson, Chairman of the Board of Trustees. “Her awareness of Edison Community College, her considerable experience and her expertise will serve us well. Together with the college’s Board of Trustees I am proud to be able to announce this appointment.” Dr. Rafinski, who most recently served as interim president of the Ohio Association of Community Colleges (OACC) since September 2013, will assume leadership of the College beginning July 7. Before serving as President of the OACC, Dr. Rafinski retired from Clark State Community College in Springfield, where she was president for 16 years. Dr. Rafinski brings 41

years of experience to Edison, and spent 26 of those years in presidencies throughout Ohio and Minnesota state colleges and universities. Her responsibilities have ranged from faculty and athletic director, coaching, resource development, student services and academic affairs. When reached for comment, Dr. Rafinski expressed her enthusiasm for taking on this role. “I’m excited to join the Board of Trustees, faculty and staff of Edison Community College in this transition period as we remain steadfastly focused on student success and completion; we will center on growing the college to be even more serviceable to the communities we serve.” Residing in Springfield, Dr. Rafinski serves on many local boards throughout the Miami Valley. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Minnesota State University at Moorhead; a master’s degree from the University of Washington, Seattle, a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and an MPA from Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1998, Dr. Rafinski completed the Harvard Institute for Higher Education and received an honorary doctorate from Urbana University in Ohio in 2000.

Wayne teams to focus on employee engagement BY BOB ROBINSON ASSOC. EDITOR GREENVILLE – “Tell me the story… why are you nominating this individual? What did he or she do?” This comment was part of a discussion by an employee engagement action team at Wayne Healthcare May 13. Their focus was to seek ways to honor patient-centered employees who create a positive work environment and provide quality care to patients. The hospital has set up five engagement teams involving 41 employees, according to

Terri Flood, Director of Marketing and Communications. The purpose is to focus on employee engagement and recognition. Engaged, satisfied employees are more likely to present the type of care the hospital wants for its patients. Flood said teams are focusing on patient care, leadership, collaboration, communication and recognition. They meet an hour a week for 12 to 16 weeks. Their projects will be presented to Hospital Board, Senior Leadership and/or Management Team. Wayne Healthcare Di-

rector Wayne Deschambeau attended the May 13 meeting briefly, noting various programs are good “as long as you realize they have a finite life. However you don’t drop them at that point, you take a new approach.” He added the focus must be on the people they care for. Demeanor is a big factor; how the patient perceives the caregiver. He said they need to understand “this is 100 percent subjective.” A manager noted her appreciation, saying Deschambeau’s appearance at the meeting was recognition for what they

were doing. The discussion also included recognition that many important jobs supported patients but were not directly involved in their care. Recognition would go to both a clinical and a nonclinical employee. A factor to be weighed in addressing employee recognition is the hospital’s focus on serving Darke County and its new “wellness” approach. It’s a new ‘feel’ for a hospital, said one of the managers. “We want to work with you so you don’t have to come in later for that surgery.”

Send your kids to Camp SWONEKY GREENVILLE – All Darke County children, 6 to 12 years of age, are invited to attend Camp SWONEKY in Oregonia, July 16–22. Camp fee is $20 per child, and each child must have a physical. Applications are available at Community Action Partnership, 1469 Sweitzer St., Greenville. Activities include the playgrounds, a jumping pillow, swimming pool, lake for boating and fishing, a nature center, craft lodge, a ropes course, children’s petting farm, horse corral, hiking trails, tennis, basketball, volleyball, baseball/softball, campfire amphitheater, and much more! Tonya Estell, staff

member at CAP, said, “The cost is minimal and the camp is a great opportunity for children to learn new things and make new friends. We want to sign up as many as we can this year.” Camp SWONEKY had its beginnings in 1912 and was opened for underprivileged children who were referred to The Salvation Army by social agencies from all over Southwest Ohio and Northeast Kentucky. The camp name is an acronym for Southwest Ohio-Northeast Kentucky. The purpose of Salvation Army camping is to serve the needs of campers: physical, social, and spiritual. In meeting physical

needs, their aim is to help children develop good health habits in cleanliness, proper rest, balanced diet, exercise, and care of the body. For social needs, the camp provides an opportunity for each camper to contribute to and receive from a group living experience, helping campers make their own right decisions, stimulate creativity, and foster independence. The fact that The Salvation Army is a religious organization makes it possible for its camping program to integrate concern for the spiritual dimension of life. For more information, contact Tonya, 548-8143.

VILLAGE GREEN HEALTHCARE CENTER is going to help get your memorial day week started.

out the program. There is a limit of five children per adult. The program in Darke County is organized for the purpose of sharing the love of fishing and the outdoors, providing youth with instructions and an opportunity fish while teaching the importance of staying drug free.

that will be manufactured locally. They are inviting interested businesses, groups and individuals to learn more about this exciting project! There have already been numerous hours spent preparing a new cannon design by a team compiled of Scott Fitzgerald, Bill Light, Matt Light, Hank Steinmetz, and Larry Garrison. The Athletic Boosters would like to thank these gentlemen for their hard work and community spirit to start this project full force. The funds raised will cover expenses for the materials, purchased parts, powder coating, paint, wood, and black powder to make this dream a reality. This project will not be cheap but the design will last for at least 50-75 years. Interested contributors can mail donations to Greenville Athletic Boosters c/o “Cannon” 100 Green Wave Way Greenville Ohio 45331. Please direct any questions concerning this project to Greenville Athletic Boosters at greenvilleboosters@yahoo. com.

We will also recognize the contributions of their families, friends, and healthcare providers and discuss the issues faced by cancer survivors today.” In Greenville they will celebrate with a Memorial Walk, cookout, music, and family and friends.
