MANAGING EDITOR editor@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – The Early Bird and Bluebag Media has confirmed City of Greenville Police Sgt. Shannon McDaniel is under investigation and could face criminal charges. According to Greenville Police Chief Steve Strick, McDaniel is on paid administrative leave, and is being investigated for off duty conduct. On Monday, the Darke County Commission approved a resolution to hire Mercer County Prosecutor Matthew A. Fox to assist the Darke County Prosecutor’s Office with the investigation of a Greenville Police Officer. Chief Strick shared the case had been turned over to the Darke County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO). Ac-

cording to Chief Deputy Mark Whittaker, of the DCSO, his department requested the investigation be completed by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations (BCI). BCI confirmed on Wednesday its Special Investigations Unit received the request on Aug. 3 and is currently investigating allegations of alleged criminal misconduct. Because the investigation is ongoing they are not at liberty to share specifics of the investigation. BCI is conducting interviews and gathering evidence and will present the information to the prosecutor to determine if charges will be filed. The Early Bird and Bluebag Media will continue to update this story as information becomes available.

County’s O’Connor officially on the job SUSAN HARTLEY

STAFF WRITER shartley@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE Already on the job, the county’s new facility and safety manager will be taking time to learn the ropes before officially taking charge Dec. 1. Rodney O’Connor of Union City, Ind. was hired by Darke County Commissioners earlier this summer to replace the retiring John Cook, who has been on the job for the past 21 years. Born and raised in Union City, O’Connor said following high school graduation from Randolph Eastern, he “hit the road running” on his career. Prior to being hired by the county commissioners, he worked as a longterm care director of environmental services and maintenance. The job, he explained, involved dealing with numerous safety issues. As the county’s facility and safety manager, O’Connor will oversee the county’s maintenance teams and facilities. He’s looking forward to

learning more about the county and meeting its residents. Plus, he said, the drive is a little closer to home than his previous job. “It’s close and I really can tell everyone here is upbeat. When I read the job details, it inspired me to apply,” O’Connor said. O’Connor and his wife Angie are high school sweethearts who have been married 22 years. They are the parents of four children, Emily, 16, Elly, 13 and Scottie and Jac, both 11.

DARKE COUNTY – A temporary fix has been made to the Darke County Courthouse steps. Late last week, commissioners asked the county’s new facility and safety manager Rodney O’Connor to patch portions of the deteriorating steps. “It’s definitely a patch,” said Commissioner Mike Stegall, noting the attempt to fix the steps was “temporary.” As of Monday, orange cones and yellow safety tape were still in place keeping patrons from using a portion of the steps. According to Commissioner Mike Stegall, the patch materials totaled $48, plus labor. “The steps are curing,”

Rhoades said late Monday, indicating they will be open for public use as soon as possible. During their regular meeting on Monday, commissioners approved the hiring of Mercer County Prosecutor Matt Fox to assist with two issues including assisting the commissioners’ attorney on issues regarding the courthouse steps and security and also to assist the Darke County Prosecuting Attorney with an investigation involving a Greenville Police officer. Commissioners also approved a fund advance to pay the first two installments to Sunesis Construction for work being completed at the Darke County Airport. The sum of $537,273.60 was transferred from the general fund to an outside fund. The money will be re-

paid to the county through the FFA grant being used to complete the airport renovations. The contractor is currently overdue on the project, following an extension commissioners granted in July after a portion of the west end of the runway was found to be in need of additional work. The extension was

through July 26. In keeping with the contract, Sunesis is paying a $1,000 per day fine, which will be placed in the airport fund, said Mike Rhoades. Rhoades noted that the fine money will not be spent on any other county project, but will be placed in the same fund as airport hangar rental fees and fuel sales.

Council discusses paving, parks and splash pad RYAN BERRY

MANAGING EDITOR editor@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – Although the city has approximately $1 million in paving projects planned for 2018, they won’t be started until after Labor Day. Safety Service Director Curt Garrison shared the information with Greenville City Council at its meeting on Tuesday. “That project (maintenance paving) was scheduled to have started already,” said Garrison. The late start by the contractor will ultimately benefit the city. The project was scheduled to be complete by the end of August, but after a meeting with Walls Brothers Asphalt, the city learned the company would not be able to start until after the project was supposed to be completed. Walls Brothers will be required to pay $500 a day

for each day past the due date. “That will motivate them to get the project done,” said Garrison. Birt Street was not part of the maintenance paving contract and it is on track to begin on schedule. According to Garrison, the street will be reconstructed and paved by the end of September. Council learned the curbs have been installed on Fourth Street and the contractor is currently prepping to install sidewalks. The YOLO Urban Park project will need assistance from the city to help lower the cost of moving a utility pole. YOLO had requested DP&L move the pole. “DP&L’s charge to move the pole was a little more exuberant than what YOLO had anticipated,” said Garrison. “What I’m proposing to council, and there would be no change in the budget, is for the city to dig a trench from

the utility pole in the alley to the location of the new pole.” The city would also put the conduit in the ground to help save money on the project. The city’s cost would be the labor cost. Council will also consider applying for an ODNR grant to install a Splash Pad at South Park. The grant would be a dollar for dollar match. The city previously applied for this grant and was denied, but Garrison believes there is a better chance this time of receiving the grant because the city had two other ODNR grants that had not completed when the previous application was submitted. Garrison suggested city council put the issue in a committee to discuss the cost of a Splash Pad and possibly renovating the restrooms at the park so they will become ADA compatible. Council President John Burkett assigned the

issue to the Miscellaneous Affairs & Priority Needs Committee chaired by Dori Howdieshell. “It would be an amazing addition to the park,” said Councilman Jeff Whitaker. Doug Wright chimed in, “I think it would be a great idea.” The application for the grant is due Nov. 1. The grant is available every two years. At Whitaker’s suggestion, council’s Safety Committee will consider updating the 90-minute parking in downtown Greenville to three-hour parking. Whitaker believes there should be a time limit to prevent business owners and residents in that area from taking advantage of the parking spots, but pointed out there were no complaints during this year’s Annie Oakley Sidewalk Sales when the parking restrictions were lifted for that event.

911 Center renovation work to begin soon SUSAN HARTLEY

STAFF WRITER shartley@earlybirdpaper.com

DARKE COUNTY – By the end of the year, the county’s 911 center, located at the Darke County Sheriff’s Office on County Home Road, will be renovated with the addition of two work stations. On Wednesday, county commissioners approved a bid from Muhlenkamp Building Corporation, located in Coldwater, for $243,516 – well under the engineer’s original estimate of $482,000.

Four bids were received, noted John Cook, facilities and safety manager, with the county’s architect/ engineer for the project, Mote & Associates, recommending Muhlenkamp to commissioners after reviewing all four bids. “We are familiar with low bidder, Muhlenkamp Building Corporation,” wrote Mote & Associates, “and the quality of their work, which was found to be acceptable.” Cook said Mote & Associates had been involved in other projects being completed by Muhlenkamp and “was satisfied with

their work.” The project, which will begin in the next couple weeks, Cook said, will include the inside of the existing 911 Center and adding two additional work spaces. Also, in keeping with the county’s move to the MARCS communication system, the county is hoping to hire two additional personnel for the 911 Center. Commissioner Mike Rhoades also noted that the bugs continue to be worked out with MARCS and some of the new pagers purchased by some

emergency agencies within the county. Even though the county is still “doing a dual system,” there is no money being poured into the old communications system, Rhoades said, noting that once it’s (the old system) is turned off, it will be permanent. Also Wednesday, commissioners approved the 2019 license and other fees for the county’s Animal Shelter. The rates will remain the same, with a one-year dog license costing $16 and a three-year license running $48.

GPD assists health department with search warrant, finds drugs Search Warrant

On July 27 an officer was in contact with a representative of the Darke County Health Department in regards to a house in the 400 block of Washington Avenue not having running water or electricity. It was also reported the occupants were possibly defecating in the bathtub and in the yard. On July 30 the officer met the health department employee at the Washington Avenue residence and spoke with resident David Newsome. Newsome was advised the health department was there to conduct an inspection and he agreed to allow them inside. During a walk-through of the residence, Newsome led the officer and health department employee into his room. The officer observed an orange plastic cap associated with syringes on the floor and asked Newsome if he had syringes and he said “no.” Newsome had a backpack on an entertainment center with one of the front pockets open. In plain view, the officer saw two syringes in the pocket and asked Newsome about the syringes. He said he was diabetic. The officer asked where his insulin was and he said it was in the refrigerator. The officer asked Newsome if he would show him and Newsome led the officer to the refrigerator. Not remembering that the residence did not have electricity, Newsome opened the door and a foul stench was emitted along with gnats and bugs. There was no insulin present. The officer then asked Newsome if he used the syringes for heroin or meth and he

said he had used them for heroin. During the entire encounter with Newsome, he constantly picked at his chin to the point it was raw. Also, during the walk-through, the officer located Andrea Gabbard in a bedroom. While looking into her room where she was sleeping, the officer observed two syringes and a burned spoon. Two more syringes were on a nightstand by the bed, one of which was uncapped and filled with a bloody solution. After finding the drug paraphernalia, the officer contacted the police department and additional officers arrived on the scene. All subjects were removed from the residence while officers prepared to obtain a search warrant. Police also issued a trash notification and a junk motor vehicle complaint, as well as a nuisance abatement activity. Notices were posted on the front door. Newsome and Gabbard were cited Aug. 3 for possession of drug abuse instruments. On Aug. 4 an officer was dispatched to 116 Deshler Avenue concerning found property. The complainant told the officer he found a bag containing items belonging to Vincent Arnold in his garage. The complainant said he believes Arnold is sleeping in his garage but did not wish to pursue charges. The complainant gave the officer a brown duffle bag belonging to Arnold. The bag contained clothing, shoes, miscellaneous items, Arnold’s birth certificate, and a blue and silver camel tin with a used glass smoking pipe inside. Also found in-

side the bag was a plastic bottle with tin foil over the top containing a charred green leafy substance and two light bulbs with burn marks. Arnold’s duffle bag was taken for safe keeping and the drug paraphernalia was placed into property. Officers were not able to make contact with Arnold at that time. A citation for drug paraphernalia will be issued when Arnold is located. On Aug. 6 an officer was dispatched to the area of the East Fourth Street bridge after a complainant reported he was being chased by subjects who were trying to kill him. The officer met with Douglas Green at East Fourth Street and Tecumseh Street. Green was pointing towards the bridge telling the officer that he needed to go get them before they get away. The officer asked Green what was going on and he said he had been up all night at his girlfriend’s house on Oxford Street and he could hear “them” plotting to kill him because he was dating their daughter. Green said he left the residence and they chased him. Green pointed to the bridge again and stated he could see them standing there. Another officer arrived to assist and to check the bridge area. When the second officer arrived, Green told the first officer he heard the second officer say he was right and that she found “them.” No one was found. The officers requested Greenville Rescue respond for an evaluation. Prior to their arrival, Green was asked if he had any weapons on him and he said “no” and allowed officers to conduct a search. The officer felt an object resembling a marijuana pipe in Green’s right front pocket. When asked what the object was, Green stated it was a pipe for smoking marijuana. The pipe was removed and officers found it still contained vegetative matter. Green admitted to last smoking marijuana on Aug. 5. Green gave officers permission to look inside his backpack. They located 11 bottles of cough syrup. Seven bottles were sealed, three bottles were partially full and one bottle was empty. Each bottle contained 450 mg of the drug

dextromethorphan, an unscheduled cough suppressant. Green said he needed the cough syrup for his cough, although he previously told the officer he used to abuse “DXM,” an ingredient in cough medication. The officer seized the bottles to determine if they are legal. Greenville Rescue arrived, but Green refused to be transported and evaluated. It was determined Green was not at risk to harm himself or others. He was issued a citation for drug paraphernalia and released. DUI

On Aug. 4 an officer saw suspect Herman Linder driving a lawn mower the wrong way eastbound on Fifth Street near Harrison Avenue. The officer had prior knowledge that another police officer had dealt with Linder earlier in the day, and had warned him for public intoxication and disorderly conduct on Aug. 4. Prior to conducting a traffic stop, the officer observed Linder operating a riding lawn mower westbound in the 100 block of West Main Street. Linder was swerving back and forth while continuing to travel on Sycamore Street. A traffic stop was initiated and the officer spoke with Linder, asking him how much he had to drink. Linder said “not much.” While speaking with Linder the officer observed he had slurred speech, glassy eyes, and detected the strong odor of alcohol. The officer also observed three “tall boy” alcoholic beverages unopened in the trailer he was pulling behind the lawn mower. Linder was asked to perform a field sobriety test and he refused. After Linder refused the field sobriety test he was placed under arrest for OVI and transported to the Greenville Police Department, where he was asked and agreed to perform a breath test. It was found Linder was over the legal limit. Linder was issued a citation for OVI and driving in marked lanes. Disorderly

On Aug. 4 an officer was dispatched to the 400 block of East Main Street on the report of a harassment complaint. The officer spoke with a female complainant who said

David Setser had been harassing her while she was sitting on her porch. The officer spoke to Setser about harassing his neighbors, but after the officer left, Setser began walking on the sidewalk and harassing the complainant and others who were on her porch. The officer returned and spoke with Setser, who admitted to calling the neighbors “trash.” He also was drinking alcohol at the time. Setser was issued a citation for disorderly conduct and was advised to stop harassing his neighbors. Shoplifting

On Aug. 8 an officer was dispatched to Walmart on a theft complaint. While en-route, dispatch advised the defendant was running southbound

behind the North Towne shopping plaza. Upon the officer’s arrival, two deputies from the Darke County Sheriff’s office had Richard James in custody behind the apartments on Bendon Way. Through an investigation it was found that the defendant was inside the store and selected a backpack off of the shelf. The defendant went around the store selecting items and concealing them in the backpack. The defendant then passed all points of sale, leaving the store through a fire exit door. Walmart employees started chasing the defendant and officers caught him a short distance away. The defendant was incarcerated at the Darke County Jail and issued a citation for shoplifting.

Hemmelgarn sentenced to one year in prison for sex charge BY SUSAN HARTLEY STAFF WRITER shartley@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – Eric Hemmelgarn, 38, of Greenville was remanded to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections on Wednesday after being found guilty for one count of gross sexual imposition. Judge Jonathan P. Hein also imposed 60 months of community control sanctions for one count of disseminating matter harmful to juveniles. Hemmelgarn’s attorney Paul Wagner, who requested a stay of execution to delay his client’s prison sentence, said he would be filing an appeal based on “conflicting testimony to say the least.” During Tuesday’s bench trial, Wagner objected to some of the state’s exhibits entered by Darke County Assistant Prosecutor Deborah Quigley, as well as what he termed “numerous hearsay” evidence. Wagner also told Hein that Hemmelgarn’s actions were “not a pattern of conduct.” Hemmelgarn’s charges stem from an incident, which took place in September 2017, when a 12year-old family member reported he showed her a pornographic movie on his cell phone. The victim, who testified in court, also said Hemmelgarn touched her inappropriately while the movie was playing. Another child who was asleep in the home at the time woke up and came into the room during the incident, the victim said, allowing her the chance to get away. Greenville Police in-

vestigated the complaint, which included using a computer to extract browser history. Greenville Detective Jason Marion testified there was a history of pornographic videos found on the cell phone, even though Hemmelgarn thought he’d deleted them prior to handing over his cell to police. Also during Tuesday’s bench trial, Hemmelgarn admitted to using crack cocaine, which led to his addixtion to porn. Quigley said Wednesday she was pleased with the verdict, stating the “judgement was consistent with the testimony and evidence that was presented.” Quigley also praised the Greenville Police Department for their investigation. “They did an excellent job,” she said. Prior to announcing

his verdict, Hein heard a statement from the victim’s mother, who urged Hemmelgarn to get his life in order, stating “this is not the first time you’ve been accused, it is a repeat pattern.” When given the opportunity to make a statement, Hemmelgarn said he was “not apologizing for touching (the victim) because I didn’t do it.” He also said he would “apologize to (the victim and other family members) for allowing drugs back in my life.” Hein made it clear he did not consider past accusations that did not lead to charges against Hemmelgarn when considering his verdict in this case, calling the defendant’s addiction to porn “disturbing.” After his release from prison, Hemmelgarn must register as a Tier 2 sex offender for 25 years.

Time to Put Excess Cash to Work? You’ll always want to base your investment decisions on your own needs and goals. But there may be times when you might consider adjusting your portfolio because of risks and opportunities. Now maybe one of those times. Here’s some background: In recent months, the Federal Reserve has raised short-term interest rates several times, and given its generally favorable outlook on the economy, it has indicated it may continue bumping up interest rates gradually over the next year or so. The Fed doesn’t control long-term interest rates, but these rates often follow the lead of short-term movements. However, longer-term rates haven’t yet risen as much as shorterterm ones, which means the difference between short- and long-term rates is relatively small, historically speaking. This doesn’t mean you should make drastic changes to your portfolio. You still need to stick with the asset allocation that’s suitable for your situation, which typically involves owning a certain percentage of growth-oriented vehicles, such as stocks, and a certain percentage of fixed-income securities, such as bonds. However, if you do have space in the fixed-income part of your portfolio, you may find the higher interest rates offered by short-term bonds and certificates of deposit (CDs) to be attractive. To take advantage of this opportunity, though, you will need to have the cash available to invest. Some people hold too much in cash, waiting for interest rates to rise, or as protection against the risk of a market decline. But holding excess cash involves its own risk – the risk of not investing. So, if you have your cash needs covered, you

may want to consider investing any excess cash. To determine if you are holding excess cash, you’ll need to review your entire cash situation. For example, do you have enough cash, or cash equivalents, to create an emergency fund of three to six months’ worth of living expenses? This fund can be vital in helping you pay for things like a major car repair or an unexpected medical bill without dipping in to your longterm investments. And, of course, you need enough liquidity to provide for your lifestyle, including your regular spending needs – your mortgage, utilities, groceries and so on. Also, you may want to set aside enough cash for a goal you want to reach in the next year or so, such as a vacation. But if you have taken care of all these needs and you still have excess cash, you may want to consider putting this cash to work, possibly by investing in short-term fixedincome vehicles now being issued at higher interest rates. And keep in mind that regardless of where interest rates are going, bonds and other fixed-income investments can offer some key benefits to investors. In addition to providing a source of regular income, these types of investments can help reduce the effects of volatility on your portfolio. While bonds can, and will, fluctuate in value, they typically can provide more stability to your portfolio and tend to behave differently than stocks over time. After years of historical lows, shorter term rates now have risen to levels that are more attractive to investors. Take the time to review your situation, perhaps with the help of a financial professional, to deter-mine if taking advantage of these rates may be appropriate for you.

Dohme brings home four awards from fair BY LINDA MOODY CORRESPONDENT lmoody@earlybirdpaper.com

ARCANUM – Taryn Dohme came home from the Ohio State Fair and two days of showing her horse, Annie, with four top awards, said to be a “first” for the state fair. “I won in my age group in western pleasure, in sportsmanship, in equitation and in western showmanship,” she said. “I got grand champion in western showmanship, third in western pleasure, fourth in equitation and fifth in western horsemanship.” The Dohmes were told that no one had ever won all four age group classes. “I was nervous,” Taryn said. “They calmed me by saying, ‘It’s just another show.’” Taryn, the daughter of Robert and Traci (Anderson) Dohme, is a senior at Arcanum High School and Miami Valley CTC, where she studies allied health nursing. She has been riding horses since the age of 6, and has been a member of the Buckeye Buckaroos 4-H Club for four years and the Boots and Saddles Club for five years prior to that. “I played basketball from fifth through eighth grade, and now I play on dirt floors not concrete floors” she said. Both she and her only sibling, Taylor, are competitive when it comes to the horses. Taylor showed for 11 years. “Nobody could beat her,” their mother Traci said. “Taylor was equine champion eight years and was in the showman of showmen competition five times. Taryn has also shown in showman of

showmen. They have competed against each other.” “As long as one of us is winning, I’m good,” Taryn said. “We’re competitive but nice about it. When we’re in the arena it’s game on.” According to Traci, Darke County cleaned up at the state fair. Thirteen went in competition. “They all did amazing,” she said. Taryn, who turned 17 on Aug. 10, enjoys helping the younger contestants. Many of them, it was noted, have asked her and Taylor to do lead line. Not only does Taryn do chores after school, she also works, volunteering at the Brethren Retirement Community and working at Drees’ Dairy Barn in Greenville. She is responsible for her own expenses, including vaccines and the grain for the horses and her show uniforms. Her father pays for the gas, and

Grandma Dawn Dohme is also a big help, cleaning her clothes and keeping them fitted and pressed. “It’s work, school and horses,” Taryn said. Her plan after graduation is to attend college and become an ultrasound technician. She rides most every day, even in wintertime, when they ride at a local arena. “As long as it’s above 20 degrees, we ride,” she said. Traci said it was the late Roberta “Bobbi” Hinker who got the girls involved in horses. “Bobbi died of cancer and had given the girls her horses before she passed away,” said Traci. “She told the girls to carry on her love for horses. They outgrew the horses and returned the old ones back to John (Hinker’s husband).” And, they’re doing just that.

My wife’s glance is my kryptonite

I’d like to think of myself as having above average in intelligence, but I’m sure I have co-workers that disagree. I’d like to think that I have a healthy dose of common sense, but my kids just think I’m full of it. I’d also like to think that I can leap tall buildings, have bullets bounce off of my skin and be powerful enough to stop a locomotive, but I’ll admit that I sometimes have trouble opening the lid on a jar of pickles. What’s my point? I don’t really have one. I just wanted to get it out there that I think I’m smart, wise and can take on Superman. If I’m like Superman

then I must have a version of kryptonite that can also weaken me. I do. It’s my wife. If I get a certain glance from her I go running like a scared little boy. Oh sure, I wear the pants in the family, but she is the belt that holds them up. A few weeks ago I was walking through the department store‌ Okay, I’m dating myself by calling it a department store. I also dream of having a nogahide davenport. Let me translate for the younger readers – it’s a plastic couch that will rip the epidermis clean off of you when it comes in contact with bare skin. As I was walking through the store a price tag caught my eye. It was a drone and it was on sale. My heart leapt for joy, but then my mind started going in circles. Should I get it? Oh, my wife will kill me if I buy it. I put it in the cart and then I took it out of the cart. I couldn’t get my wife’s glance out of my head. I hadn’t even told her I wanted it, but somehow, when I wasn’t looking, she implanted her kryptonite into my brain. She and my youngest daughter were with me the next day and although she didn’t say yes, I got the other look.

The one that means you can go ahead and get it but I don’t like it and I will never act as though I like it and I think it’s frivolous. I know that was a run-on sentence, but most of my wife’s glances are like run-on sentences – they just keep going and going and you keep hoping for the period so it will end, but it never comes. I was excited when I arrived at the aisle, but my joy vanished as quickly as a sexy model at a David CopperďŹ eld show. It was gone. A day or two later, we were at the store again. The drone of my dreams had returned. Without even looking at my wife – because her glance can change from day-to-day and I wanted to cash in on the previous glance - I put the drone in the cart and headed straight to the register. Her only words to me were, “You’re going to

crash it.â€? A few weeks went by and I didn’t crash it. Then came the day that put a huge smile on my wife’s face - I crashed the drone. There wasn’t any damage because it had a soft landing. I crashed it into my face. I was taking it through a narrow area and the wind caught it, the drone bounced off the top of a barn and headed straight toward my face. My ďŹ rst thought was how do I keep this quiet and then my youngest daughter said, “Dad, your face is bleeding.â€? Within seconds my wife knew and was standing there laughing with her phone out ready to post my deformed face on Snap Chat. My response to her was, “I’m glad you don’t know how to put that video on Facebook.â€? Guess what - she knows how to put a Snap Chat video on Facebook.

ACL injury doesn’t stop Greenville’s Di’Maurye Ewing GAYLEN BLOSSER

SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – Greenville senior running back Di’Maurye Ewing was suited-up and toting the football for the Green Wave in the team’s first scrimmage of the season against Celina after battling back from a 2017 ACL football injury requiring surgery. “He popped a nice run right through the same exact location where he tore his knee up last year – jumped right up and kept on playing unfazed,” GHS coach Arron Shaffer noted of Ewing’s 2018 scrimmage play. “He works hard. His desire is through the roof.” Di’Maurye is a gifted athlete,” said Jim Beyke, Director of Wayne HealthSports Rehab Services. “It is going to be really exciting to see him enter the season healthy and be out there running hard.” Through determination and the aid of a leg brace, Ewing was able to finish the 2017 season in uniform with his teammates. “Historically it’s been uncommon for an athlete with and ACL injury to continue playing but with the bracing, being careful and putting him in the right situations it can be

done,” noted Beyke. “Last year he obviously tore his ACL,” said GHS Athletic Trainer Alyse Grillot. “That means you normally won’t play but he was determined to keep playing so we got him set up with a brace. It was just a lot of monitoring pain, making sure his quads strength was still decent enough to play. He played with a brace with a torn ACL – that was a first for me.” Determined to play his senior season, Ewing’s dedication and hard work paid off following ACL surgery with the GHS running back following through with a painful regiment of therapy. “It was painful but there was never a time when I said it wasn’t worth it because of my love for the game – it’s just there,” Ewing said. “Not being able to play football would just be heartbreaking to me so I had to get it done – and I got it.” “Di’Maurye is an excellent patient,” Beyke said. “He did his homework, he was compliant with all of our instructions and he worked extremely hard because he was very goal oriented to be back on the field this fall to play football.” Ewing is appreciative

of the services offered by the local Wayne HealthCare outpatient rehab and Orthopedics Associates of Southwest Ohio that helped get him back on the field for Friday Night Lights. “It starts with our six athletic trainers that Wayne HealthCare employs in Darke County,” stated Beyke. “Having them at the schools allows them to make early contact with our orthopedic group, Orthopedic Associates of Southwest Ohio and we can get these athletes in very quickly to be evaluated and then treated. That is what has made a big difference and then our rehab department is there to get started as quickly as we can.” “Jim Beyke really helped me with the physical therapy aspect of getting it all back and getting the muscles so I can get back up in the weight room and start building that even more,” Ewing said. “Alyse really helped with getting me there before surgery so that when I did come back it was all good and well.” “They can handle it all,” Ewing said of Wayne HealthCare. “I’ve seen other ACL injuries around the school and they have all been handled really

well.” “We have been real pleased working with Orthopedic Associates of Southwest Ohio and our Medical Director Dr. Safet Hatic.” Beyke said. “They make the process of referral go real smoothly.” “I want to thank Coach Shaffer,” said Ewing. “He was understanding last year with me wanting to play on it even though he probably didn’t want me to play – but he understood that it was just what I wanted to do. I really couldn’t go without it.” “Coach (Eric) Hanes (Ewing’s guardian/father) definitely helped especially with being there for me and helping me take care of everything that I need to get done,” continued Ewing. “My mom (Ronda Hanes) played a big part. She helped me right after surgery while I was down. She definitely kept me honest and kept me doing what I needed to do.” “It has really been impressive to watch him if people don’t know his story with him playing on a torn ACL last year and then getting it fixed and going through rehab – to see the things he’s been able to do,” said Coach Shaffer. “Sometimes you kind of have to throttle him back a little bit knowing that we’re trying to make sure that we’re getting him ready for the season and not overworking him in the preseason, but he’s a kid that is going to come out and work hard and do everything he can to be the best player he can be.” Coach Shaffer believes Ewing’s passion for the game is contagious and will be an inspiration to the Green Wave team. “It’s crazy,” said Shaffer. “Last year his decision to come back was based 425 Memorial Dr. Greenville, OH 45331

on that he couldn’t handle not being on the field. He felt like he could play with a torn ACL and we went through all the appropriate channels and spoke to doctors and trainers and such. Mom and dad and Di’Maurye decided it was something they wanted to do so we threw a brace on him and off he went. We have a lot of kids that want it but his want it may be at another whole level. We have a lot of guys like that – they want it so bad that it drives everybody else.” “Senior season – last

Greenville boys soccer earns 1-0 win over Twin Valley South GAYLEN BLOSSER

SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – The Greenville boys soccer team defeated the visiting Twin Valley South Panthers 1-0 in a defensive battle in a non-conference scrimmage. “I’m happy with the win,” said Greenville coach Mark Coppess. “Overall defense – that was what we were kind of focused on.” The teams played a 40 minute scoreless first half with much of the contest played at the Panthers end of the field. “The first half was more defensive our offense was horrible the first half I was not happy with them at all we’ve been working on defense all week we’re learning a new formation and they did really well tonight they smother quick they kept their shape quick they covered quick and pressured and supported really well kept our balance on defense it was really good

After a half of solid defensive play, the Wave stepped up play on the offensive side of the field in the second half scoring the game’s only goal of the night when Greenville junior Alex Hutt found the back of the net with 9:26 on the game clock to give the Green Wave boys a 1-0 win. “We were working hard all game and it really felt good to put the team up,” said Hutt. “Looking for a

great season.” “Offensively we were horrible the first half and I pulled them out and some of our young guys got in there,” Coppess stated. “We had some better opportunities with our young players which is good – push that competitiveness. The second half was much-much more offensively, when they realized their jobs aren’t so safe.”

Lady Wave volleyball making positive strides BY GAYLEN BLOSSER SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

COVINGTON – The Lady Wave varsity and junior varsity squads competed in a Tuesday night quad volleyball scrimmage at the home of the Covington Lady Buccaneers. “Overall defensively the effort was great,” said first year varsity assistant coach Jim Hardesty. “Got a little tired there towards the end which we expected because of the late start we got with them.” “Defensively they did really good on the blocking part of it,” continued Hardesty. “We got our hands on a lot of balls. We work hard on that. Hitting wise we were a lot stronger. We got away from a lot of the tipping game they used last year.” The first year Lady

Wave husband and wife team of head coach Michelle Hardesty and husband Jim was well pleased with the team’s effort on the court. “Their effort was spectacular,” Hardesty noted. “We watched them play a couple times last year – not that they weren’t strong, their effort wasn’t there all the time and I would say tonight ninety-five percent of the time they did a great job.” “I would say on a scale of one to ten – I would rate that about eight-and-onehalf tonight on just what we wanted out of them,” added Hardesty. “They did a good job and actually we had a freshman out there setting for a little bit – and she did a great job,” concluded Coach Hardesty. “We have

Greenville football team scrimmages well vs. Celina BY GAYLEN BLOSSER SPORTS WRITER gblosser@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – The Green Wave entertained the Celina Bulldogs in a Tuesday morning football scrimmage at Harmon field and came away with GHS head football coach Aaron Shaffer pleased with the team’s play. “A lot of what we want to see early is enthusiasm, intensity, run around, getting excited,” said Shaffer. “I thought we played hard today. We made some plays – we missed a few. It was good to see our kids come out and get some things going early top to bottom, varsity down to JV – and then those freshmen were out there making plays so that is always good to see both offensively and defensively.” Coach Shaffer expressed satisfaction in the team’s positive progress on the young season. “The good stuff that we saw from Saturday to today – our offensive line it appeared we were better in our footwork, we were able to close some gaps down and work to the second level,” noted Shaffer. “Running backs and quarterbacks made some nice cuts and reads. Our receivers blocked better than

Saturday which those are all things you want to see.” Coach Shaffer was upbeat with the team’s play on the defensive side of the line as well. “Defensively took us a minute to get used to the little dive option that they were running,” Shaffer said. “I thought we tackled pretty well today – the secondary played fairly well. I don’t know that they had too many completed balls so when you are getting pressure on the quarterback and you’re covering them up, defense turns out pretty good on the pass side of it.” “They broke the one long run,” added Shaffer. “We have to figure out how to force the edge a little bit better which is all stuff that comes the more that you work. We have some young guys out there that are just learning it, but all

GREENVILLE – Wanting to find a way to spread a little hope and cheer, Ruthie Trobridge typed the word ‘kindness’ into a search on Facebook. What she found has turned into a hobby she’s going to be sharing every fourth Tuesday at the Greenville Library. Rock Hopes Greenville began as a Facebook page in May, Trobridge explained, after she found a fun hobby that’s quietly growing across the United States – painting rocks with encouraging and uplifting scenes and messages. After painting a rock, you hide it around walking paths, parks or other places people gather. Once a rock is found, you take a photo of it, upload it to the Hope Rocks Greenville Facebook page and hide it somewhere else for another person to find. Some people are mailing rocks they find to friends and relatives living in other areas of the U.S. for them to hide in their hometown. Trobridge said she’s

found a couple other rock painting groups in Ohio, as well as one in California. “They’re giving me tips,” she said on painting and sealing the rocks and oyster shells she’s been painting all summer. “There’s just so much negativity in the world,” Trobridge said of seeking a hobby to help her spread happiness. “None of us can change the world, but if I can just touch one person at a time, it’s worth it.” Trobridge, who is struggling with health issues, including her eyesight, believes God has led her to this new hobby, which she is eager to share. So far, her family members have been assisting by collecting rocks. “My husband and grandkids and I take walks searching for rocks. And after a rain I’ll go to vacant lots to see if any rocks have come up,” she explained. For the most part, inspiration for the messages or scenes she paints on rocks come from their individual shapes. For example, a round rock inspired a beach ball, another she painted to look like a car. Yet another is Winnie the Pooh. On some

rocks she will include little sayings of encouragement. “Or I’ll listen to music and something will come to mind,” Trobridge said. She also has painted rocks as gifts for friends who may be suffering with an illness or for a couple’s wedding. After running across the Hope Rocks Greenville page on Facebook, librarian Rachel Brock contacted Trobridge to see if she would be interested in bringing her hobby to the library. Willing to share her hobby – and spread kindness, hope and cheer – Trobridge agreed. Beginning Aug. 28 and every fourth Tuesday, from 4-6 p.m. those who are interested in participating in Hope Rocks Greenville, are invited to bring a washed rock or two, some acrylic paints and paint brushes over to the library and participate in a painting session. Participants will take the rocks home to seal using their own spray sealant, Trobridge said. After sealing their rocks, the next step will be to hide it at a place of their choosing. All ages are welcome to attend the painting sessions and door prizes will be part of the class. “We’ll have a theme each time,” Trobridge said, for participants to use for inspiration on how to paint their rocks, if they wish. Information on the classes will be posted on

Dogs move to south end for 2018 fair BY RYAN BERRY MANAGING EDITOR editor@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – When you are passing through the livestock barns on the north end of the fairgrounds this year you may feel like something is missing. It won’t be the livestock. They are where they normally are and some species have record numbers including the swine department and goats department. However, you won’t hear the yapping of little dogs or deep grumbling of the larger dogs. They have been moved to the south end of the fairgrounds. The dog department’s junior fair and open show can now be found north of Gate 5 and south of the junior fair horse barns. Gate 5 is the southern gate to the fairgrounds off of State Route 121. The dog committee is hoping to have a new building by this time next year and although the location has not yet been determined, they know it will be at the south end of the fairgrounds. The fairboard decided at its July meeting not to temporarily ďŹ x the roof on the current dog barn and erect a tent for this year’s fair. Andria Haworth, president of the dog committee, said she supported the

move for this year’s fair. She said, “The committee wants the community to see that we are taking our move seriously. We want to be able to test a location before we build.â€? She also noted the most important reason is the safety of the animals and the kids. When it rained, the barn would ood from water draining into the barn and prior to last year’s temporary ďŹ x, the roof would leak near electrical outlets. Haworth continued, “The tents, though not the ultimate goal, will provide cover

without leaks near electrical outlets.� The dog department is more than halfway to its goal of building a new dog barn. Haworth pointed out they still have some fundraising to do. Most recently, the department received support from Second National Bank. The bank pledged to support the new building by giving $5,000 over the next two years. Haworth added, “We greatly appreciate all of the support we have received.�

Band plays tribute to Brown and McCoy GREENVILLE – The Greenville Municipal Concert Band will once again take the stage on Sunday, Aug. 12 at the Marling Band Shell in the beautiful Greenville City Park. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public. This week, the Greenville Municipal Concert Band will present a tribute to two great Greenville Musicians, Dwight Brown and Ken McCoy. Brown held the baton for the Greenville Municipal Concert Band for over 40 years. Celebrated as Greenville’s “Mr. Music,” Brown touched the lives of countless musicians and non-musicians alike. A graduate of Miami University, he led a very eclectic life. An avid aviator, Brown loved to fly and did so for both recreational purposes and in the service of our country. He was an educator in the Greenville School District but is also credited with starting band programs in our area. He served our community in government as well, presiding over the Park Board for many years and many other civic organizations. In many

ways, Brown was as much “Mr. Greenville” as he was “Mr. Music.” Very notably, he is credited with the building of the original Marling Band Shell located in the city park. Musically, Brown was a great admirer of all things John Philip Sousa. The Greenville Municipal Concert Band will perform favorites of Brown including Sousa Marches, Procession of the Nobles, The Sound of Music and a compilation of music hits by George Gershwin, whom Brown also enjoyed. Greenville Native Ken McCoy is a giant among national composers and arrangers. He graduated from the highly regarded North Texas State University in music. Upon graduation, McCoy became a public school music educator in Greenville and Versailles. He left public school education to make a serious mark in the music world on a national level in 1977 when he became the Chief Staff Arranger for the United States Army Field Band in Washington D.C. and wrote many pieces of music for many years for

that highly esteemed organization. In 1995, McCoy began arranging music for The Ohio State University Marching Band. He has had his arrangements performed by groups throughout the United States and the world and his arrangements and compositions have been re-

corded by The United States Army Field Band, Ohio State University and other national artists like Les Elgart and Stan Kenton, whose music McCoy enjoyed greatly. The Greenville Municipal Concert Band will perform works arranged by Ken McCoy such as Amazing Grace, Beautiful

Ohio and With A Little Help from My Friends. Please plan to attend this Celebration of the lives and musical commitment of Dwight Brown and Ken McCoy concert at the brand new Marling Band Shell. Park bench seating is available and you can bring your

own chair or blanket to sit on and enjoy the show. The concert series is a great way to spend an evening listening to music, reading a book or just creating quality time with family and friends and enjoying the park. We hope to see you there.

Abbottsville Monuments hosts kiosk at the fair LINDA MOODY

CORRESPONDENT

ABBOTTSVILLE – Abbottsville Monuments has obtained additional space at the Great Darke County Fair this year and decided to use part of that space for a new kiosk they built. It is a four-sided display with two sides housing 55inch monitors. “While the primary purpose of the kiosk is to display Darke County Fair history it will also be showing tributes to people who loved the fair and are no longer with us,” said Greg Brown, owner. “This way they can ‘always be at the fair’.” He went on, “If you have a loved one who really enjoyed the fair, you can set up a free tribute by emailing a picture of your family member (preferably of them at the fair but all are accepted) along with their name, dates (if you choose),

and one or two sentences of what they liked most about the fair to fair@abbottsville.com. You can also send them a message on Facebook or bring your picture to their office.” Persons interested in having historical pictures, items, or stories of the Darke County Fair that they would like to share with fair attendees can use the above methods to get them included in the display. Credit will be given in the display to whoever owns the items. This year will be Abbottsville Monument’s 42nd year in the same location at The Great Darke County Fair. “The Brown family, who owns Abbottsville Monuments, has always enjoyed the fair,” he said. “Since they know they are not the only people fond of our county’s annual ‘reunion’ they sincerely hope that this year’s fair attendees enjoy the kiosk they have built for them.”

Partners in Care sponsors entertainment RYAN BERRY

MANAGING EDITOR editor@earlybirdpaper.com

GREENVILLE – Mornings at the Great Darke County Fair are a great time to visit, walk around and enjoy the sites without having to push through too many people. Did you know there is also entertainment at the Gazebo each morning thanks to the Partners in Care? According to Sandy Baker of Oakley Place, each one

of the Partners in Care will sponsor the entertainment from 10:30-11:30 a.m. beginning Aug. 17 and ending Aug. 25. She said they have been providing the entertainment for more than 15 years. Members of the Partnering for Care group on-hand for the announcement were State of the Heart Care, Rest Haven, Brookdale Greenville, Village Green, Brethren Retirement Community, JAG Health Care and Oakley Place.

GREENVILLE – An estimated 65 people attended the Victory Over Addiction event in Greenville City Park on Aug. 5. Dave Miller, pastor/ chaplain of Mercy Ministries and a crisis intervention advocate in dying, death, domestic violence, suicide and drug abuse, brought the event which focused on drugs and their usage. His wife, Darla, opened the program. “It was Dave’s idea for this event,” she said. “Everybody affected needs someone to lean on, especially the ones being touched by it. I’ve watched Dave suffer greatly the last three to six months. We can be there for each other. We’ll never be alone anymore. We’re not going to do it starting today.” Dave, who has two daughters on drugs and a son who has been in recovery for five years, gave the audience what he called “disturbing facts.” “We need rehabilitation centers built,” Dave said. “I’ve been to some. It’s a joke. I’m madder than hell at the devil. It’s time for America to wake up.” Several people affected by drug usage gave testimonials. One was Miller’s granddaughter, Madison, who talked about her own and her mother’s abuse. Then

Here are just a few of the people giving testimonies at the Victory Over Addiction event. The men are from Genesis rehabilitation in Hamilton. They are shown with Dave Miller, second from left kneeling, who brought the event to Greenville City Park. (Linda Moody photo)

she and Summer Brock, who also lost a sister to drug abuse, sang Rascal Flatts’ song “I Will Stand by You.” Others speaking were four mothers who lost their children to drugs in one way or another, not to mention 11 men who attended from Genesis, a faith-based rehabilitation center in Hamilton, most of whom gave testimonials. Another former addict, Ashley Smith, said she has been sober for four years. “I’ve struggled with self-esteem problems all my life,” she said “I won’t go back to the monster I used to be. I’ll never go back even on the days I’m not in love with myself. I know Jesus is real because I met the devil

himself.” Additional highlights of the event were Dan Foster, reading the poem, “The Devil’s Den,” and a balloon launch. “I am just overwhelmed after today’s event,” said Miller. “I’m just filled up. Lives were touched today – all those that came from Genesis rehab, all the testimonies, tears of joy, also tears of sadness, but God is our strength; He will see us all through.

Markle and Dan Foster for serving, and Lynette Trent for the memorial wall. God is good.” Markle had this to say, “I was skeptical to attend but so glad I did. So many stories, so many tears of heartache over addiction make you truly feel that we are not alone in this epidemic. So many testimonies from recovering addicts; so many mothers who have lost their child to this horrible drug. A lot of heartache today but I left today with my heart full of peace knowing that all these people in attendance are going through what I have and continue to go through.” Darla Miller said they are thinking about starting a support group for people affected by drug addiction.

everyone in attendance to enjoy. “We appreciate the support of the community and all of those who participated in making the event a success,” Chief Ater said. “We would especially like to thank the UCOFD members for their assistance helping out on the event.” The car show is held each year in front of the police and fire department on the 400 block of Elm St., in conjunction with Stateline Heritage Days. All proceeds go to ongoing training and other expenses associated with the K-9 Unit, which has been a key factor in helping the

combat of possessing and transporting of drugs in Union City. “Without the community the K-9 unit would not be able to continue to take drugs off of our streets,”

Chief Ater concluded. For more information about the Union City Ohio PD and its K-9 program log on to their official Facebook page at facebook. com/ucopd.

Giant puffball found on local farm CLINTON RANDALL

CORRESPONDENT crandall@earlybirdpaper.com

DARKE COUNTY – Whether you are a mushroom fan or not, finding a Giant Puffball Mushroom (Calvatia Gigantea), is enough to catch anyone’s eye. One of these overgrown white mushrooms was recently discovered at a family farm near Union City. The fungus was found by Ron Price, at the Kester Farm on Hillgrove Woodington Road and measured an impressive circumference of 43inches. He knew it was

way bigger than normal, so he called the grandkids, located a tape measure…and of course his camera. The current world record for the largest Puffball Mushroom was discovered in 2016 on the banks of the Kaministiquia River in Canada – measuring a circumference of 81 inches and a whopping 52.2 lbs. The mushroom is reportedly safe to eat until it matures and spores develop. Learn more about it, including cooking and medical uses, at https:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Calvatia_gigantea.

GREENVILLE – Whenever the wreath needs replaced at the Gold Star Mothers monument at the southeast edge of Greenville City Park, it gets done, and this week was no exception. “Woodsprite Garden Club maintains the monument and Greenville City Park employees take care of it,� said Marcella Sewell, garden club member. She decided to get the wreath ready and invited Kathy Hoblit Bowen to help her place the wreath on the monument this past Tuesday. Bowen, who lives in both Greenville and Alabama, is the daughter of Jean Hoblit, who was the main person who made this monument a reality. Hoblit died Nov. 10,

2007. It was Gertrude Hoblit, Bowen’s grandmother, who was one of the founders of the Gold Star Mothers organization in Greenville, which is no longer in existence. The monument, erected in 1957, was dedicated to the World War I, World War II and Korean Conict veterans of Darke County who served (on land, sea and air) the country and who sacriďŹ ced their lives so that freedom might live. At one time, a time capsule was placed in the area by Gertrude’s daughter, Florence Magoto, but when it was redone, it was not located. Sewell created the wreath that was hung this time, making it out of yellow roses and carnations. In addition to this project, the Woodsprites deco-

GREENVILLE – The upcoming installment of “Art at the Mill” on display from Aug. 31 through Sept. 23 will feature intriguing mobiles by Daytonarea architect Terry Welker along with the dynamic abstract paintings of his friend and art partner Ron Rollins. This exhibit in the Clark Gallery at historic Bear’s Mill opens on the Final Friday of August with a reception from 6-8 p.m., offering finger food and drinks as well as brief talks by the artists who will share information about their work, methods, and inspiration at 7 p.m. “Art at the Mill,” curated by Jan Roestamadji and Julie Clark, is free and open to the public. According to Ms. Clark, Mr. Welker’s fascinating mobiles, inspired by the natural world, will animate the Mill space with their form and motion. “His simple, yet elegant designs of all sizes use curves, arcs, and lines to draw three-dimensionally in space, delighting the eye and the spirit,” Ms. Clark stated. Ms. Roestamadji says that Ron Rollins’ highly colorful paintings

inspire happiness, evoking joy in the viewer. “Ron’s bold, strong, and freeing acrylic paintings have garnered a following among art enthusiasts of every genre. I am thrilled that the work of these exceptional artists who share a studio in Kettering will enliven our Clark Gallery, and hope that viewers will be inspired to consider enlarging their own collections with their outstanding work.” Striking mosaics crafted from slate and stone by Cincinnati area artist Peggy Schuning and rustic hewn stone pieces created by Harold Wiley remain on display at Bear’s Mill through Aug. 26. “Art At the Mill” is funded in part by a grant from Darke County Endowment for the Arts.

$2.55 for the six months ended 2017. Increased net interest income, steady fee income, benefits from credit recoveries, decreased loan loss provision, federal tax changes, and other factors all contributed to Park’s net income results in the second quarter. “We continue to focus on long-term plans to fuel and sustain loan growth and strong overall performance,” said Park Chief Executive Officer David L. Trautman. “We celebrated NewDominion Bank officially joining our organization on July 1st, and everyone is engaged in further fortifying that relationship and ensuring a smooth transition.” Park’s community-banking subsidiary, The Park National Bank, reported net income of $28.8 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $20.2 million for the second quarter of 2017 and $55.5 million for the six months ended 2018, compared to $41.6 million for the six months ended 2017. Headquartered in Newark, Ohio, Park National Corporation had $7.5 billion in total assets (as of June 30, 2018). With the addition of NewDominion Bank effective July 1, 2018, the Park organization now consists of 11 community bank divisions, a non-bank subsidiary and two specialty finance companies. Park’s banking operations are conducted through Park subsidiary The Park National Bank and its divisions, which include Fairfield National Bank Division, Richland Bank Division, Century National Bank Division, First-Knox National Bank Division, United Bank, N.A. Division, Second National Bank Division, Security National Bank Division, Unity National Bank Division, The Park National Bank of Southwest Ohio & Northern Kentucky Division, and NewDominion Bank Division.

Bob Robinson, of Empowering Darke Count Youth, accepts a donation from the Greenville Eagles.

Empowering gets Eagles donation GREENVILLE - The Greenville Fraternal Order of the Eagles recently gave donations to Empowering Darke County Youth and five other nonprofit organizations. The donations come from their Charitable Bingo Funds. The Empowering donation will be used to help provide snacks and professional tutors for the 2018-19 school year. “The board of directors and I would like to thank the Eagles for the incredible support the organization is giving us,” said Eric Fee, President of Empowering Darke County Youth. “We are making a huge impact in the community and the Eagles are playing a major role in that.” E m p o w e r ing Darke County Youth was formed in 2016. Since then it has provided over 7,300 contact hours to more than 300 local students. It provides support in the academic basics – reading and comprehension, writing and math – for grades kindergarten through eight, although there are a number of students in high school who have also benefitted from the program. “We’ve been privileged to help students at nearly all grade levels,” said Bob Robinson, Program Coordinator. “Every student who has consistently participated has shown improvement. Some of the improvement has been dramatic.” Robinson added that in addition to paid tutors, who are also supervisors, Edison State students work with the youngsters, most of whom prefer being helped by students closer to their own age. “Our Edison State students do a great job with these kids,” Robin-

son added. “They not only provide academic help, they are role models. It’s a win-win situation for our community.” The Empowering Mission: Empowering Darke County Youth is a United Way Partner Agency providing After School and Summer Tutoring programs to assist students in the areas of language arts and math with the goal of Strong Students for a Strong Community. The Greenville Eagles is a fraternal organization that supports its youth, seniors and community through donations and activities. Membership

is open to the public. Applications can be requested at the Eagles: FOE 2177, 113 E. Third Street. The Eagles also gave donations to the Annie Oakley Festival Committee, Friends of Bear’s Mill, Main Street Greenville, Boys and Girls Club of Greenville and Greenville Instrument Boosters.

Garst unveils Great Darke Co. Fair exhibit GREENVILLE – Many Darke County families have fond memories of the Darke County Fair. Because the fair is an integral part of the county’s culture, the Garst Museum has documented the history of the Great Darke County Fair in its newest exhibit. The exhibit is a photo collage of fair activities, entertainment, advertising, horseracing, and much more. The fair has been a place to visit friends, show animals, ride the rides, eat the food and enjoy the entertainment. As the county seat, Greenville was selected for geographic reasons. Over the years, the fair has grown into one of the premier county fairs in Ohio. Although much has changed over the years, the fair continues to be a summer highlight that brings people together from far
