Wayne Lakes Council decision keeps beach closed RYAN BERRY

WAYNE LAKES – Wayne Lakes Village

Council decided Monday night to void a contract with John Kennedy who was attempting to open the Wayne Lakes Beach. The contract would have al-

Nearly $70,000 needed to complete airport renovation SUSAN HARTLEY

STAFF WRITER shartley@earlybirdpaper.com

DARKE COUNTY – Commissioners on Wednesday approved a $67, 560.17 change order for work being completed at the Darke County Airport. The county will be responsible for paying 5 percent of the increase. The contract, with Sunesis Construction, now totals $1,855,307.55. According to Mike Rhoades, workers realized the pavement was moving as they were working at the west end of the runway. Upon further investigation, he said, “they found material underneath (the current pavement) that

wasn’t correct.” Rhoades went on to say “buried treasure was found down there, to put it politely.” The renovation work, which closed the airport in May, is expected to be completed by July 26, Rhoades said. Improvements include paving, striping and new lighting. Also Wednesday, commissioners approved the hiring of Rodney J. O’Conner as the county’s facilities and safety manager, effective July 20. O’Connor will spend the next few months being trained by current facilities and safety manager John Cook, who will be retiring at the end of the year.

lowed Kennedy to operate the beach for a total of five years, but Kennedy said he couldn’t meet the village’s demand for the level of insurance they requested. The village currently holds a $2 million liability policy with a $4 million aggregate to cover the entire village and its lakes. Kennedy said he has checked several insurance agencies and the most he can get is a $1 million policy. He said, “I personally feel I shouldn’t have the same amount of coverage on that one little area (the beach).” He explained the chances of a claim actually being made are very slim. “You have to prove risk. You have to prove negligence in order to sue someone and the village having sovereign immunity makes it even harder. You have to prove that dangerous conditions existed and we failed to do something about them. We have to knowingly know a dangerous condition existed. They can try, but it’s very difficult,” he said. Kennedy wasn’t without support with several residents expressing their belief that Kennedy was “blindsided” or the vil-

lage was asking him for too much. One individual claimed that Kennedy’s $1 million liability and $2 million aggregate policy is better than the village’s policy because it isn’t capped, to which Kennedy agreed. However, Mayor Ellen Brown defended the village’s insurance policy requirement stating she was excited about the possibility of Kennedy operating the beach and wants the beach to open, but “this is about me trying to protect the village.” She read a statement from the insurance company that stated, “You need to remember that Mr. Kennedy does not have the same sovereignty that Wayne Lakes has. If something happens and the village is sued, if you don’t have enough coverage the balance not paid by insurance comes out of your general fund. Insufficient funds could bankrupt the village. That is why equal limits are being required.” Council member Karen Sink asked Kennedy if more time was needed to find a policy. Kennedy responded, “I literally cannot get a policy.”

John Kennedy spoke to members of Wayne Lakes Village Council at their regular monthly meeting on Monday.

Council members praised Kennedy for stepping up, but all agreed to void the contract. Mayor Brown left open an opportunity to readdress the issue by stating that council’s vote only voids this contract. She stated she would hope the discussion on this issue would continue. In other business, council went into executive session to discuss hiring a fiscal officer. When they emerged, council unanimously agreed to hire Carolyn Robinson. Robinson has experience as a fiscal officer having worked with Arcanum and Gordon.

Village council also agreed to put a new 1 mill levy on the November ballot. The levy, if approved, would generate approximately $9,450 to help the financially struggling village. A homeowner in the village could expect to pay approximately $17.50 annually on a $50,000 home or $35 on a $100,000 home. Council will also ask village residents to renew a 7 mill levy in the fall. Mayor Brown noted she will be compiling information on the need for both levies and presenting it to the residents in the near future.

PALESTINE - A garage fire on Saturday, July 7 damaged everything inside, including four-yearold Raiden Everhart’s beloved bicycle. He and his family pulled up to the scene of the fire at his great-grandparent’s property on the corner of US 36 and Hollansburg Tampico Road. Young Raiden immediately asked Liberty Township Volunteer Fire Department Chief Mark Loy if they were able to save his bike...unfortunately they were not. This was understandably an emotional moment for the child, who looked forward to riding his bike every chance he got. “We all try our hardest to save lives, conserve as much property as we can, and stop whatever bad

is happening at the time. Sometimes we are successful and sometimes we fall short,” Chief Loy said. After leaving the scene of the fire and seeing how much the bike meant to the boy, the chief wanted to do whatever he could to bring a smile back to the youngster’s face. So he and the rest of the crew at Station 15 went together to get a replacement bike and safety gear, which they presented to Raiden Tuesday evening at the fire department in Palestine. After a minor adjustment to the seat height, it didn’t take long for Raiden to jump on and ride...with a big smile back on his face. “Every time we have the opportunity to help someone’s heart heal I think we should try,” the chief added. According to Raiden’s grandfather, Lee Ever-

hart, the family lost a lot of valuable items in the fire, including racing bikes that belonged to he and his son Tommy. It goes without saying that a love for bikes is in the family blood. “It is a great thing what the firefighters did for Raiden. I can’t thank them enough for their quick response and for everything they do,” he said. “All of the stuff can be replaced...I just thank God nobody was

hurt!” In a Facebook comment by his mom, Brandi Long noted that Raiden “loves his bike so much” and he said during the car ride home, “This is why I love the fire department!” His dad Tommy posted, “the first thing he (Raiden) talked about when he woke up this morning was his awesome bike that the firefighters got him.”

Woman ďŹ les false sexual assault report and ends up in jail FalsiďŹ cation

On July 4 an ofďŹ cer was called to McDonalds South to speak with a female in regards to a sexual assault. The victim, Tiffany Ann McGinnis of Indianapolis, Ind. initially told she had been picked up by a man she called ‘Larry’ at a truck stop in Richmond, Ind. and driven to Greenville. Somewhere along the way, she said ‘Larry’ pulled off the side of the road and sexually assaulted her and that she was hurting. She told the ofďŹ cer after ‘Larry’ dropped her off he was going to Dayton to see a friend. McGinnis gave a detailed description of ‘Larry’ and the truck he was driving. She also said she had a warrant from Iowa for making a false rape report against her ex-husband, who was a police ofďŹ cer. The ofďŹ cer asked McGinnis if she had

any mental health issues and she said she had depression, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, PTSD, and ADHD. According to the report, she said she was not on medication but needed to be. After obtaining the initial information, McGinnis was taken to Wayne HealthCare by Greenville Rescue. The sexual assault nurse also was contacted to respond. After speaking further with McGinnis, of ofďŹ cers and medical personnel determined the alleged assault did not take place within Greenville City limits. OfďŹ cers contacted the Darke County Sheriff’s Of OfďŹ ce as well as Preble County to alert them of the alleged incident. OfďŹ cers were able to determine that ‘Larry’ picked her up at a truck stop on U.S. Route 40 on the east side of Richmond, Ind. She said he then drove east on I-70, then north on U.S. Route 127 to Greenville. McGinnis told ofďŹ cers she wanted to come to Greenville because green was her favorite color and she liked the name. McGinnis remembered passing the ‘Leaving Preble County Entering Darke County’ sign and then exiting at the transportation building (ODOT at S.R. 49). At that time, she said, ‘Larry’ pulled

over, they walked into a cornďŹ eld, and he assaulted her. They then got into his truck and he dropped her off at McDonalds. Greenville dispatch ran a Computerized Criminal History (CCH) on McGinnis, which conďŹ rmed she had an arrest warrant in Iowa for making a false report in 2017. McGinnis also had a CCH in Atlanta, Ga. for making a false report in 2015, Louisville, Ky. for trespassing and disorderly conduct in 2017, several jurisdictions in Indiana for making false reports in 2014 and 2018, and disorderly conduct and trespassing in 2015 and 2016, and Cleveland, Ohio for felony false alarms in 2014. OfďŹ cers spoke with McGinnis about ďŹ ling a false report and she admitted she did this time because she was hot, hungry and needed a place to stay. McGinnis admitted to meeting ‘Larry’ at the Rain Tree Motel in New Castle, Ind. the night before and admitted they did have consensual sex prior to him dropping her off in Greenville. During the investigation, McGinnis attempted to leave the hospital room because she wanted to smoke. She became agitated when of ofďŹ cers stopped her from leaving. Based upon the number of ofďŹ cers, doctors, nurses, and medics whose time she consumed and her lengthy criminal history, ofďŹ cers made the decision to charge and incarcerate McGinnis for falsiďŹ cation. She was advised she was under arrest for making a false report and became highly agitated and verbally abusive. McGinnis was escorted from the hospital while being verbally abusive towards ofďŹ cers and then kicked the door when leaving the ER. She also said she would bust the police cruiser’s window with her head. While placing her in the cruiser, ofďŹ cers had to threaten to use the Taser two separate times. McGinnis was taken, kicking and spitting to the Darke County Jail where she received a citation for falsiďŹ cation. Drugs

Greenville Power of the Past hosts horse pull at fairgrounds BY GAYLEN BLOSSER SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – Seven large draft horse teams made their way to the Greenville Power of the Past to compete in the horse pull located in the horse arena at the south end of the Great Darke County Fairgrounds. “You guys have great facilities over here,” said Andy Wagner, a lifelong horse puller from Farmland (IN). “It’s one of those we always look forward to coming to. You guys have a great arena here. It’s a good spot for a horse. You’re not going to get one hurt out there. It’s a good, good facility.” Wagner’s father, Max Wagner was the arena announcer for the evening’s pull. “He’s 80 years old,” noted Andy. “I have a trophy from the 50’s so you could say he’s been around a few years.” The vast majority of

horses used in horse pulling are Belgian Draft horses with the exception being Percheron, Clydesdale, Shire, Friesian and Appaloosa. All teams at the Saturday night pull were Belgian. “Most people are familiar with the Budweiser Clydesdales – everybody thinks they are huge,” said Wagner. “They are the ‘Manute Bol (7’7″)’ of horse pulling. They don’t pull very often, they are really tall, slender, thin framed but the Belgian is more the ‘Shaquille O’Neal (7’1”)’ style of it. They’re big, muscular and they’re broader.” “The Belgians are extremely smart,” said Wagner. “They’re babies. Generally speaking the larger the horse the more docile.” “When we come into the arena they may walk flatfooted, just quiet as can be across there but when we cut them in front of the sled, they will get fired up because they love to do it,”

continued Wagner. “It’s just one of those things they are born to do, they are bred to do.” As with any athlete, training is also vital to horse pulling. “We don’t just throw these animals on a trailer and bring them here,” explained Wagner. “They are getting four to eight hours a day, every day for months before we are ready to bring them to the pull. They’re conditioned, they have the best of feed, they have best of medical care and they have the best of training that we can pos-

sibly give them. They are very well trained and conditioned athletes.” A drawback to horse pulling today, like many

hobbies, the cost continually continues to increase with time. “Horse pulling has just went the way of everything else – it just gets more and more expensive to do,” Wagner said. “Unproven green horses are selling for twenty and thirty thousand dollars. You get a horse that is proven, it’s not uncommon to play fifty to seventy-five to one hundred thousand, and those are the really good ones.” “You have to have two of them so it’s not hard to have eighty to one hundred

thousand dollars wrapped up in a pair of horses. Tonight first place will be between two and three hundred bucks so you can do the math. It’s a couple thousand per year per horse just to feed them.” “You can figure it out. We would have to win at least 300 pulls a year to pay out,” chuckled Wagner. “They are hay-burners, but we do it for the love of it.” “I’ve been doing this my whole life so it’s not for the money,” concluded Wagner. “Hopefully we can continue to afford to do it.”

Proud to be an American, Proud to be a 4-H Member MOLLY E. HUNT

Ohio 4-H Teen of the Year

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.â€? -Margaret Mead It seems every day in the United States we are ooded with news stories focusing on negativity in our world. It can be quite disheartening to see this each day but just the other day I was reminded through a Facebook post how proud I am to be an American, and a 4-H member. Most kids spend their summer vacations lounging around the house or spending time with their friends, but 4-Hers are doing more. Thousands of 4-Hers will be ascending upon Washington D.C. to engage with legislators and each other to create actions plans for positive community change. But summer is not the only time and D.C is not the only place 4-Hers are making a difference. There are 7 billion 4-Hers in the world, and according to 4h.org, 4-Hers are 2x more likely to give

back to their community then non- 4-H youth. To me that math gives me much conďŹ dence in the future of our nation and our world. I have seen 4-Hers create programs for under-privileged youth, donate thousands of dollars to other nonproďŹ ts, grow community gardens, volunteer in soup kitchens, create recycling programs, and so much more. Right here in Darke County we have a 4-H club dedicated speciďŹ cally to community service, ‘Hands Across the Darke’ started by teen 4-H members. This club is open to any 7th-12th graders in Darke County, you do not need to be a 4-H member to join. 4-H gives youth the skills, and tool kit to become the future scientists, politicians, business men and women, artists, engineers, farmers, lawyers, and world leaders. So, I urge you the next time you turn on your TV to a heart-breaking story, instead of focusing on the negative, hope for the positive. I ask you to Believe in the United States of America, Believe in 4-H, and Believe in the ‘Power of Youth’.

DARKE COUNTY – Annie Oakley said, “I will endeavor to give a few words of advice that may not come amiss to the beginner.

Greenville completes week of track and field camp GAYLEN BLOSSER

SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – More than 100 campers took part in the weeklong Greenville track camp held at the Jennings Track and Field Center. “Every day we had well over 100 kids,” said Greenville head track Coach Bill Plessinger. “It has gone really smooth – it’s because of great help.” “I couldn’t do this without the great help because the kids I have helping, they’ve been through the camp they understand it,”

added Plessinger. “This camp could not happen without them.” The five day camp had nine stations for the young campers to experience many track and field events including; shotput, discus, high jump, long jump, hurdles, relay races, sprints and more. “We do every event in track, except pole vault,” noted Plessinger. “They may not be able to high jump the way they’re supposed to but when they are old enough and tall enough to go over the bar, they know how to do it.” “These kids will take

whatever you give them,” Plessinger said. “If you want to see a kindergarten girl throw the disc, you think it can’t be done – they did it. They are all throwing a six pound shot – they didn’t throw it very far but they threw it.” The camp is open to kids as young as four years old as a result of Coach Plessinger allowing his son, Jackson attend the camp several years ago. “If you watch the little kids, they’re amazing,” Plessinger said. “It started with my son when he was four. He came because he just wanted to be with dad

Heat Post 140 16U closes season with runner-up trophy BY GAYLEN BLOSSER SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

DAYTON – Greenville Heat Post 140 was runnerup in the Greater Midwest Baseball tournament, losing 3-2 in the championship game to the Riverbats played at the Action Sports Complex in Dayton. The Greenville team defeated the Gem City Throwbacks 5-0 in the first game with Fisher Spencer picking up the win, allowing two hits while striking out five. The Heat collected 12 hits for the game with Andrew Knick going 1-3, Jarin Young 1-3, Tyler Beyke 1-2, Kayge Twaits 1-2, Dustin Booher 3-3, Alec Fletcher 2-2, Tytan Grote 2-3 and Reed Hanes 1-3. “Fisher Spencer pitched a great game – had outstanding stuff today,” stated Coach Darin Young. The Heat lost to the Diamond Kings by a 6-2 score in game No. 2 with the team held to five hits in the contest. “Their pitcher did a good job keeping us off balance, we started pressing a little trying to catch up and chased some high pitches,” Heat coach Jim Beyke stated. “Tim Lawson did hit a 2-run bomb over the fence in the fifth, but we came up a little short.” Game three went to the Riverbats with Greenville

and he did really well. I’ve opened it up to younger kids. We have a four year old here this year – Coach Holzapfel’s son has done great.” ‘Capture the Flag’ obviously is not a school track event but is a favorite of the campers, a game that is played in the City Park. “It’s about doing healthy things,” said Plessinger. “We usually play ‘Capture the Flag’ on Monday. We did it on Tuesday and we did it on Wednesday this year because they had so much fun. They’re running nonstop. They don’t know it because they are playing a game and those things are heathy when you get them out and get them moving.” Coach Plessinger is pleased with the improvement shown by the campers with just one short week of camp instructions. “For the amount of time at the stations you see big

improvement,” Plessinger stated. “They are learning hurdles, starting blocks. We throw a whole lot at them. We teach them how to pass the baton. We have kindergarten girls passing the baton. Most of the kids that come to the camp, come back.” Addie Haupt, a GHS three sport varsity athlete will be moving from Greenville in a week with

her family, “Addie is going to be a junior and she’s moving to North Canton,” said Plessinger. “Her dad got a new job and those are the kinds of kids – you coach for the kids. She’s a special kid. She is going to come back and work camp next year. She’s a quality kid and we’re losing her in three sports. She’ll be sorely missed.”

dropping a two run game by a 6-4 score. Post 140 battled back to defeat the Xenia Scouts 6-2 with Tyler Beyke going the distance on the mound allowing five hits and striking out five. The Heat outhit the Scouts 8-5 with Jarin Young going 1-3, Tyler Beyke 2-3, Dustin Booher 1-3, Tim Lawson 1-3, Alec Fletcher 1-3, Andrew Knick 1-3 and Tytan Grote 1-2. “Tyler Beyke pitched a great game” said Young. “Their only runs came on a home run in the bottom of the second. Tyler (Beyke) was able to keep them off balance the rest of the way and our defense played really well.” Post 140 16U lost a 3-2 heartbreaker to the Riverbats in the championship game with the game going down to the wire. Trailing 2-1 in the top of the seventh, Coach Young called for a suicide squeeze

with Beyke leading off at third and Tim Lawson at the plate. A wild pitch had Beyke scoring from third to knot the score at 2-2 with the Riverbats coming to the plate in the bottom of the inning to push the winning run across. “Runs were at a premium and I decided to go for it,” said Young. “I had a lot of faith in Timmy and Tyler to execute the play. The pitch got by the catcher as Tyler crossed the plate – the boys executed the play perfectly.” Fisher Spencer went the distance for Post 140 allowing seven hits and striking out six. The Heat managed five hits in the game. “We had a great season and are very proud of our Heat Post 140 boys,” said Coach Beyke following the team’s final game of the season. “We placed in the top three in 5 out of 6 tournaments and played in three championship games.”

With several regular players unable to make the double header, Post 140 coach Chad Henry’s group did not miss a beat taking the field playing at different positions. “A lot of guys I’ve had in

same place here for quite a while now,” said Henry. “They have kind of had to adapt playing some different positions. It’s a teachable moment.” Greenville used a Casey Jones single and RBI double off the bat of Krue Thwaits to lead 1-0 after one inning of play. Richmond’s pitching struggle in the bottom of the third walking in two Post 140 runs to give the home team a 3-0 advan-

ton. “We’ve always hosted the fifth and sixth grade,” Fellers said. “They vote on this every year for the towns to host the tournaments and we got the seventh and eighth grade this year. It’s a nice change of pace.” “We get some of the older kids out here,” added Fellers. “They are stepping up to that high school rules and starting to learn many of those rules, so it’s good

to get them all out here playing and seeing what these high school programs are going to have here in the next couple of years.” “There are some really good teams playing in this league and tournament,” concluded Fellers. “Every town has a couple kids that just sparks your eye and it’s like that kid is going to be the next good player for that school – it’s fun to watch.

Sater Park Showdown adds to local tournaments BY GAYLEN BLOSSER SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

This is a smaller tournament. We went with a smaller tournament format. It’s kind of nice, everything is easier to control down here when it’s like this.” Taking shape at the tournament was the new “Green Monster” wall located next to Ohio Street. “We are getting there,” noted Heidrich. “We are almost ready to give Greenville Federal their full recognition for it but at least we have it green now.

Peyton Miller, Brandon Beyke, and Thwaits each collected two hits for Post 140 in the 9-0 win. Greenville Legion jumped out to an early game two first-inning lead in defeating Richmond taking advantage of RBI singles of the bats of Thwaits and Zac Longfellow.

Greenville ACME advances in tournament play BY GAYLEN BLOSSER SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

CASSTOWN – The Greenville ACME baseball team dropped a 13-7 opening round game to Troy ACME before bouncing back to win five consecutive games. A prior commitment had head coach Ryan Eldridge unable to be with the team along with several regular players. “Wasn’t a very pretty game,” said Mark Eldridge. “We looked like a team that hadn’t played in three weeks. Lot of walks and a couple errors led to all their runs.” Greenville defeated Miami East 7-3 with Chris Elliott pitching a complete game to earn the win. Alec Fletcher picked up a win against Piqua in the following game tossing five-innings of one-hit ball.. “Alec (Fletcher) pitched an outstanding game,” noted Eldridge. The Greenville team had a rematch with Troy in a must win game to stay alive in tournament play. Greenville answered with a 9-6 win with Seth Delk earning the win in relief. “He’s just a gamer,” said Eldridge said of Delk. “He was one of those kids we picked up.” The win had two Darke County teams going head-

to-head and the privilege to advance in tournament play. Versailles came into the game undefeated in tournament play and took a 6-0 lead over Greenville after one inning and held an early 9-2 lead only to have Greenville battle back to win by an 11-9 score. Coach Eldridge went to Ethan Saylor to pick up the win in relief. “Bottom of the order did a good job of getting on base,” said Eldridge. “Saylor pitched excellent, taking the mound in the second and giving us a chance to get back in the game and pull out a win.” With both teams looking at one tournament loss, the Greenville win forced a Monday night game to decide first and second place. Kole Francis tossed a complete game to earn a 7-4 win for Greenville. Tied at 4-4 in the sixth, Landon Eldridge crushed a 2-run triple to right and scored by way of an error on the play to give Greenville the win. “Super proud of all the boys,” said Coach Eldridge. “To start out on a Friday night with not a good showing, to come back Saturday and put it all together, to be able to string five wins in row and beat a very good Versailles team two in a row.”

DCTPA truck and tractor pull draws pullers to Greenville BY GAYLEN BLOSSER SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – The Greenville Power of the Past hosted the Darke County Truck and Tractor Pull (DCTPA) on the pulling track in front of the Grand Stand. We had a good group of pullers tonight,” said DCTPA Hall of Famer Duane Edwards. “More than 40 hooks here tonight. “They let us put on the tractor pull,” Edwards said of the Power of the Past. ”They are just a bunch of super nice guys which I can say that, because I am one of them.” The local pullers organization is known far and wide for their red shirts and as is so often noted, “If you

need anything – just as one of the ‘Red Shirts’. “We have one of the best group of guys that I’ve ever seen when it comes to building a track and working,” Edwards said. “The same guys may not be at every pull but they always get there and do a great job. Everybody just does something to help. With the Great Darke County Fair just a month away, Edwards was pleased to mention the National Tractor Pullers Association (NTPA) will return to the local fair. “The NTPA Grand Nationals will be here on Tuesday night of the fair,” noted Edwards. “One night this year. We’ll be here all day Tuesday. Come on out and see us – five big classes.”

Dayle Lewis presents wood carving to Thomas Pitman, Darke County Veterans Services CVSO.

Darke County Veterans Services receives donation GAYLEN BLOSSER

SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – Dayle Lewis of Richmond, Indiana made a donation to the Darke County Veterans Services of a military wood carving to be auctioned off to help raise funds for the organization’s Washington D.C. Veterans trip scheduled for September. “It’s for their donation to be able to earn money to help support other people,” said Lewis. “I’m always willing to help out. It’s going for a good cause.” “It is something I like doing – the Veteran type

carving,” added Lewis. “Gives a lot of meaning to the gun, the helmet and the boots.” The 2018 Washington D.C. Trip is scheduled for September 27-30 for honorably discharged Darke County veterans. “We are thankful for Dayle Lewis’ contribution that will go to help with the trip,” said Thomas Pitman, Darke County Veterans Services Department Head/CVSO. Donations to the DC trip can be mailed to the local Veterans Services or may be dropped off at the office at 611 Wagner Avenue, Greenville.

GREENVILLE – Picking up where they left off last summer, Hannah Rindler and Micah Perry, both 10, spent the past week working on their dragon scroll. “I took the scroll home and kept it until this summer,” Perry said. “We’re going to keep it and connect it to other scrolls we make,” Rindler explained. When asked why dragons, Perry answered: “It’s just what we felt like drawing at the time,” and said he spent a little time studying dragons from a book his mom has at home. The two students are among approximately 50 pre-kindergartners through sixth-graders who attended the DeColores Montessori summer day Farm Fun Camp and Greenville Summer Strings Workshop, held at the school’s farm campus on Arcanum-Bears Mill Road. Art projects, crafts, feeding the farm’s pigs, goats and chickens, collecting eggs, swimming, climbing trees and learning new skills, sprinkled with reviewing and solving academic challenges were just a few of the op-

portunities students enjoyed during their week at camp, July 9-13. String Workshop campers reviewed music theory and practiced their instruments, building on what they’d learned during the school year. “It’s very back to basics,” said Sharon Vanden Bosch, who teaches level 6-9 students at DeColores in Greenville. The camp, which is open to all the community, not just Montessori students, Vanden Bosch said, gets kids back out in nature as well as creative inside activities – and away from the many “screens” of electronic devices. Versailles secondgrader Annabelle Menke, 7, said her favorite part of day camp was “swim day” while campers Marion Winterrowd, 8 and Nalayna Miley, 7, spent part of Wednesday morning weaving colorful potholders on looms similar to what their grandmothers would have used as children. Some of the students also complete farm chores before moving on to the daily camp activities, including washing eggs, a task performed very carefully by preschoolers in the “little house,” Vanden Bosch

Lucy Driscoll, 4, carefully uses a small sponge to clean a fresh-laid egg during Farm Fun Camp. (Susan Hartley photo)

explained. The eggs, laid by the farm’s hens, are washed and packaged into egg cartons and may be purchased for $2 a dozen. The campers also were treated to a lesson on baling hay, Vanden Bosch said.

The school also offers a Green Thumb Camp and Water Week Camp. For more information about DeColores Montessori, call the main campus at 547-1334 or check out their website at www.decoloresmontessori.org.

SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – The Greenville Girls Softball Association (GGSA) is expanding its facilities at Stebbins Field, home of the Lady Wave high school and junior high school softball teams with the addition of a new softball diamond, thanks to Greenville Federal “Greenville Federal stepped up to generously donate some money to us for our new field expansion,” said GGSA president Eric Fellers. “This is a 501C3 – we’re non-profit organization,” Fellers noted. “Every time we’ve wanted to do a project, the community has stepped up and given us the financial means to do it. We

still put a lot of hard work into it but it’s great to see this community and these businesses step up and give us the financial backing to do things that we do for the kids.” “They are investing in our kids, our future and our whole town,” added Fellers. “The better we make this, the more people we bring into town for tournaments and we can give these businesses back some financial backing too.” We want to thank Greenville Federal and also let other people know that together we are investing back into the ball diamonds,” concluded Fellers. “If anyone would like to donate please contact us, and we’ll be happy to walk them through that process and explain our project.”

GREENVILLE – Dave Miller, pastor of Mercy Outreach Ministries, will be hosting Victory Over Addiction, slated for 2 p.m. Aug. 5 in Shelter 9, corner of Park and Avenue F in Greenville City Park. “We are going to have special speakers telling their stories about overcoming addiction, and Lord willing, to have some who are in recovery and addicts as well,” Miller said. “This event is to let people know you can have victory over addiction. You will hear a story of a woman who lived in hell and is now clean. You will also hear a 15-year-old young lady tell about her mother being an addict. Bring some tissues. We’re hoping to have some people who have lost their love ones to the Devil’s Drugs.” Miller, who also noted there will be entertainment, free food and much more, is no stranger to addiction. Two of his three daughters are current addicts and his son is a recovering addict, having been drug-free for five years. “In the last five years, both of my daughters have been struggling,” he said. “I have been in mental stress the past year. It’s really rough.” Miller, who became involved with Outreach Ministries in 1992 and stepped out of the pastorate for five years for

personal reasons, said the main purpose for this upcoming event is “to let addicts and for other parents like me to know they can overcome their addiction.” Miller’s wife Darla is a strong supporter and said, “A lot of you have never met him in person and even those who have, most can’t understand the pain and heartache he is facing. Even me, it’s hard on me, because I can only love him through it. I watch every day the pain in his eyes and the fear of the call to say they (his daughters) have crossed the line and are gone forever. I’m not on here to debate with anyone over addiction. I agree with most that it is a choice to use. I am here to reach out, and to invite each and every one of you on my list that is affected by addiction to this event, which is being held to support those who are/who have suffered because of the epidemic that is killing our families. It’s a time to gather together to support each other and bring hope.” “It’s time to let them know there are many others suffering the same way – maybe, just maybe, we can help each other through,” said Darla. “And ultimately, we hope to give an addict a reason to want to stop abusing, to regain their freedom from addiction, and in the end, start saving lives.” “The problem today is that there is so much stigma in the world that

addicts feel everybody is against them and judging them and want to cut them out of society,” said Dave, who is also a crisis intervention worker. “In my personal opinion, I couldn’t care less if it’s a choice or a disease. It’s a problem in this country.”

Just in case there is not enough seating, he advised those who plan to attend to bring lawn chairs. Others interested in getting with Miller can go to his ministry page on Facebook at Mercy Outreach.

LEGAL NOTICE

GREENVILLE – The growth of the Darke County Foundation prompted the organization to move to new office space at 323 S. Broadway St. in downtown Greenville. The non-profit community foundation was formerly located at 201 W. Main St., Greenville. “The assets and activities of the Darke County Foundation have grown significantly the last few years, and we have also added a staff member,” said Christy Prakel, executive director of the Darke County Foundation. Beth Serraino of Versailles joined the Foundation as part-time finance manager in November. “To continue to increase the scholarships we offer to Darke County students and community grants to local non-profit organizations, our board of trustees felt this move would position the Foundation for the future,” she added. The extra space will allow the Darke County Foundation to hold meetings on site and also host programs for the community. “We are looking forward to presenting free seminars that will interest the public, such as estate planning and other financial topics,” said Prakel.
