Be careful on Darke Co. roads April 12 and 13 DARKE COUNTY – Darke County Sheriff Toby L. Spencer and the Darke County Solid Waste Management District Director Krista Fourman advises motorists to use caution while traveling Darke County roadways during the upcoming weekend.

On April 12 and 13, Darke County Solid Waste Management District will be holding its seventh annual Trash Bash. Over 1100 volunteers and organizations will be cleaning up 635 miles of Darke County and Township roads. These volunteers

will be walking along roadways and picking up trash. The volunteer’s vehicles will be parked along or near the roads where the trash pickup is occurring. Participants should be wearing bright green colored shirts to increase visibility. Trash pickup is

scheduled to occur from dawn to dusk on Saturday and Sunday. Motorists are advised to slow down and pay attention to volunteers working near the roadway. As always you should not engage in distracted driving while operating a

vehicle and keep your attention focused on driving your vehicle. Practice defensive driving techniques by looking ahead and being prepared for any problems that may occur. Darke County deputies will be patrolling Darke County roadways and en-

forcing traffic laws. Always wear your seat belt and take the time to look both ways at intersections. Let’s all work together to make Darke County roadways safe for volunteers and other motorists, pedestrians and cyclists.

Reid invests in Greenville with $10 million building project

BY RYAN BERRY MANAGING EDITOR GREENVILLE – A compliment to the services already being offered by Wayne HealthCare and Family Health is how Reid is billing its new facility on the corner of Meeker and Katzenbarger Roads in Greenville. A groundbreaking on the $10 million Reid Medical Office Building was held March 30 at the site. “We are working with our partners at Family Health and Wayne HealthCare to compliment the great care they provide,” said Craig Kinyon, president/CEO of Reid. He continued, “This is a new milestone in service to this community.” Reid and its physicians have long had a role in Darke County’s healthcare. Many of its specialty services, including cardiology and orthopedics, are already offered to area residents. “This new

location will provide expanded space and bring our physicians under one roof in a convenient location for our patients in the Greenville and the Darke County area. This is a natural progression for us and a physical sign of our commitment to Darke County,” Kinyon said. Greenville Mayor Mike Bowers was also excited by the commitment of Reid Hospital. “We have had good momentum in Greenville of late and this is just an addition to that. I’m proud to be a part of all of this.” Sharon Deschambeau, president of the Darke County Chamber of Commerce, added, “We welcome our friends from Reid to our community. Our area is a great place to live, work and do business. We appreciate Reid’s willingness to invest in our great community with this project.” The 34,000 square foot facility will house Bethel Cardiology/Dr. Chong

and other specialists from Reid’s Heart & Vascular Center, Reid Orthopedic Center specialists, Reid ENT, Reid psych services, Neurology and Rheumatology. Dr. Chong has been in the Greenville community for 18 years and is well respected in his chosen field. He is excited to introduce the area to his coworkers. “My coworkers at Reid are all about providing expert care with a personal and compassionate touch that is so often lost in larger cities,” he said. He believes Richmond, IN is the perfect choice for patients that don’t want the hassles of larger cities. Dr. David Jetmore, Reid ENT, is also excited about the facility. “I have always enjoyed working at Wayne HealthCare and treating patients in Darke County.” Construction is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2015.

Child abuse and neglect awareness gets proclamation, pinwheels BY BOB ROBINSON ASSOC. EDITOR GREENVILLE – Fifteen community and elected leaders gathered around the Darke County Commissioners to proclaim April as Child Abuse and Neglect Awareness Month. Five hours later four members of the Banner Bound 4H Club, along with a few helpers, placed 462 pinwheels on the lawn between the Darke County Courthouse and the Commissioners Building. The purpose, according to Darke County Job & Family Services (DCJFS) Social Services Administrator, Rebecca James, was to raise public awareness of the issue.

Council hears resident’s concern over blighted properties

BY RYAN BERRY MANAGING EDITOR GREENVILLE – Tim Hodges addressed the issue of a blighted property near his residence at the April 1 Greenville City Council meeting. The Greenville resident shared the property at 119 Harrison Street, behind his home, is run down with holes in the roof and foundation. His grandchildren play in the backyard and he is concerned with the safety issues regarding this property. Although the home is vacant, the police department recently made a

drug bust at that address. Hodges questioned city officials regarding the public nuisance laws governing this and other blighted properties in the city. According to Safety/ Service Director Curt Garrison the city does have ordinances dealing with nuisance properties. He shared the process for a Nuisance Abatement Order (NAO) begins with the fire department. Once a NAO has been issued for a property it will stand until the property is sold or repaired. Part of the issue is determining how much time to give

property owners to make the necessary repairs. Mayor Mike Bowers asked, “Do you give them six months, a year, two years.” Bowers doesn’t want the city to look like the “bad guy” by going in and tearing down a property after the homeowner made a pledge to fix the property. Bowers and Garrison agreed they are concerned with several properties and have met with the city’s newest legal advisor, Eric Brand, to determine how to move forward. Brand is looking at ways of dealing with

If a property owner has grass that is over 12-inches high they will receive a red tab and be given five days to mow. If no action is taken the city will mow the lawn and assess the cost to the property owner’s taxes. A red tag will only be issued once on the property.

Bolton gets community control for trafficking BY BOB ROBINSON ASSOC. EDITOR GREENVILLE – Noting Dayton resident Terrance Bolton, 55, had no prior record and the risk of recidivism was unlikely, Darke County Common Pleas Judge Jonathan Hein sentenced him to community control plus jail time served for two F4 counts of Trafficking in Heroin and one F5 count of Aggravated Possession of Drugs (Oxycodone). Darke County Prosecutor R. Kelly Ormsby

told the court Bolton has agreed to testify against Bobby House, hasn’t much of a prior record and seemed to normally be a law-abiding citizen. He said Bolton cooperated with police. “He was a driver for House,” Ormsby said, adding he was aware of House’s intentions. “He was being paid to provide transportation.” The state recommended community control plus local jail time (with time served). Bolton’s defense at-

torney David Rohrer agreed. “My client has no felony record,” he said. “He has a work-related disability, needed some money and made a bad choice.” Rohrer said Bolton would be a good candidate for community sanctions. Hein agreed with both attorneys. He order community control for up to 60 months, 63 days in jail (with credit for the 63 days served), 25 hours community service (which he can do in Dayton) and nine months in prison for each count (to be served concurrently) if he fails to comply with the terms of the sentence. Bolton and House were arrested on Dec. 11 buy/bust operation at 851 Martin St. in Greenville. House was arraigned on Jan. 7. There is a possibility of a trial as a suppression hearing on evidence has been set for next month.

Free Tdap vaccine for sixth graders given GREENVILLE – This is a reminder note from the Darke County Department of Health to all parents of current sixth graders. Before your son or daughter can enter the seventh grade this fall – they must have received the Tdap Immunization. This vaccine requirement for seventh graders went into effect five years ago in the state of Ohio and is necessary for all youngsters to have before starting their seventh grade year of school in the Ohio Public School System. The Tdap vaccine covers immunity for the tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (also known as Whooping Cough) diseases. This new immunization requirement came about after much research proved that the human body needs one more pertussis booster during its adolescent/young adult years. This decision was due to the fact that pertussis has shown to have made a comeback in the recent years – in some cases proving to be a very fatal disease - thus the need for a required booster shot. On April 12, the local health department will be offering the current sixth grade youngsters

of Darke County a FREE Tdap vaccine. This will be given at Spirit Medical Transport, 5484 South State Route 49, less than one mile south of the fairgrounds, as a drive-thru clinic between the hours of 8 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The vaccine will be free on this day only at this location. This is the only vaccine that will be available at the site. Youngsters must be accompanied by their parents or guardian or provide a written note from their parents of guardian that the adult in attendance with them is allowed to sign for their Tdap immunization. Take advantage of this easy and inexpensive way of receiving your Tdap immunization. If you procrastinate to a later date, you will likely face long lines, much waiting, and a greater cost. Registration Forms for this event were recently sent home via US Mail to each sixth grade household. Please present these completed forms at the clinic site to save time. For questions about this project, contact Dennis Wein, RN at the Darke County Department of Health, 548-4196 (ext. 202).

removed from their home in 2013. This is the highest number in eight years, James said in a press release. In most cases, alcohol and substance abuse were contributing factors impacting child safety. “Drug abuse is taking its toll on children and families in Darke County,” she added. It “affects child safety, community wellbeing, and your wallet… Who do you think pays for those (JFS) services?” James also noted Children Services had 45 children in custody, the lowest in 11 years. Another 45 were able to remain safely in their homes with courtordered protective supervision. Two adoptions for finalized and the department provided service in several other areas. Child Abuse and Neglect Awareness Month is a national campaign with pinwheels being placed all over the country. It was started over 10 years ago by Bonnie Finney, whose grandchild was a victim of abuse. “There are many communities in Ohio doing what we’re doing right now,” James added. This

is the fourth year the Banner Bound 4H Club has taken responsibility for the placement in Greenville. The pinwheels will likely be in place for two to three weeks. Participating in the proclamation by the Darke County Commissioners were officials representing Children Services, Juvenile Court, law enforcement, community services, health, education, the Prosecutor’s office and CASA.

The 4H members placing the pinwheels were Skyler Marker, Makayla Hanes, Riley Hunt and Riley Marker. Their advisors were Matthew Marker and Adam Sturgill. Their helpers were Cooper Hunt, Meredith Hunt and a little girl who evidently found something more interesting and left later with her parents. None of the 4H members knew who she was. “I think she was just hanging out,” James said.

The Dalmatian Duo ask “Did You Know” There are around 15,500 home dryer fires a year. The financial costs come to nearly $100 million. Dryer Lint (a highly combustible material) builds ups in venting tubes and inside the dryer. This reduces hot airflow. Lint Traps Do Not catch all the lint. Your Dryer May be Failing If: Clothes are taking too long to dry or come out hotter than usual. Do the following 3 at least twice a year;


1st Check to see if the vent flapper opens. 2nd Disconnect, clean and inspect the dryer vent. 3rd Clean and inspect the dryer’s front, back, and underside of all lint and dust. BE SAFE AND SMART: Never let your clothes dryer run while you are out of the house or even worse, when you are asleep. If all else fails, you can always use the clothesline. We have never heard of any clothes line fires! :o)

Disputing the safety of fracking

(Submitted by Anne Vehre, WOFAC) Will they be as successful as they were in the past? The Western Ohio Fracking Awareness Coalition (WOFAC) asks this question as it prepares to present the “Toxic Truth” on April 15, 7-9 p.m. at Memorial Hall on Fourth St. in Greenville. Featured will be three leading experts who have had first-hand experience with the dirty reality of fracking, its resulting waste-injection wells, and its unparalleled usage, contamination and disposal of water. Because of the serious nature of the program, the public is urged to attend, be informed, and take heed. After they had worked hard in 2009 to successfully stop a proposed carbon dioxide sequestration project in Greenville, little did the Citizens Against CO2 Sequestration know they would be wearing another hat in 2014. Now going by the name of WOFAC, they are up against a much more aggressive adversary – an adversary that has not only caused earthquakes and lowered property values but has polluted and depleted water, which is the earth’s most precious natural resource that sustains all life forms on this planet. According to WOFAC leaders Jan Teaford, Susan Spille and Rita McCans, this project is far more serious than the CO2 project because it has already gained a strong foothold. With 262 fracking sites now operating in eastern Ohio, and 2,000 more in the planning stage, they say that it won’t be too long before western Ohio will be involved as well. However, they say, it won’t begin or end here. Spreading from state to state and country to country, fracking and

its off-shoots are posing even more problems in states such as California and Texas that are already suffering from lack of rain and severe drought. In these states, fracking is competing with farming for a diminishing water supply. Even though the signs are clear that water must be preserved and protected at all costs, billions of gallons of waste water from fracking are transported each day by truck, train or barge to be injected deep below the earth’s surface where it will never again be naturally recycled to come back down to earth as rain. As the fracking wells grow in number so will the need for Class II disposal wells, where the polluted water will be injected. While officials at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) have stated that it is unlikely that this area will get a wasteinjection well, the word “UNLIKELY” does not mean the same as definitely. With the volatile and ever changing policies that are now raging within the State, the word “UNLIKELY” is not reassuring. In the meantime, public-relations representatives from the oil and gas industry have effectively utilized their marketing expertise to promote what they want the public to hear and know. they are not lying but are stating facts in a way that can be misleading or are omitting important negative points which are vitally important for the public to know. An example is the statement that fracking has been done safely for 60 years without ONE confirmed incident of water contamination. Highly sophisticated technology proves otherwise. Ignoring the fact

that spills, leaks and water contamination were not recorded 60 years ago, there is also the fact that while hydraulic and horizontal drilling methods were used back then, they were used separately and were not combined together. It wasn’t until recently that they were combined to become the new technology called horizontal hydraulic fracturing (fracking). Jim Zehringer, Director of ODNR, verified this fact in a recent statement he made that was reported in the local news. Nevertheless, the statement THERE HASN’T BEEN ONE confirmed incident of water contamination is true -THERE HASN’T BEEN JUST ONE. THERE HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN HUNDREDS, which again demonstrates how words can be stated to mislead and manipulate the public. Another promotion that is used purposely to mislead the public is the statement that natural gas is the clean and plentiful energy of the future. Would people have as readily accepted it, invested in it, and extolled its benefits IF they had known THAT NATURAL GAS IS METHANE? Produced from decaying organic matter and garbage, it is dirty and it stinks. Unlike wet gas from which we get butane, ethane, and propane, it is a dry gas. When released into the environment, it contributes 87 to 100 percent more to air pollution than carbon dioxide. Because it is a hydrocarbon, it also releases carbon dioxide and soot when it burns – making it a triple whammy. In the oil fields of North Dakota, it is burned off as a waste.

Readers Write

The American Worker Dear Editor, Lately I’ve noticed that some of us have bought into the media’s lip service that no one wants to work in the country anymore. Well, I’m going to let the good people of Darke County decide for themselves; here are some things I’ve seen lately. Last winter I witnessed thousands of people on the interstate at the hours of 5:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. in record snowstorms trying to get to and from work. Also, there have been some major employers nationwide holding job fairs where there are thousands showing up for just a few job openings as well as major universities and colleges with record enrollment. Wow! And the one that hits home with me is the fact that this winter in record snow and cold, myself and thousands of constructions workers that never stopped one day because of the elements, these are all people that work: period! I still believe in American and the American worker. I hope you do too! Ryan Rader Arcanum -----------------------Distinction Between Man and Animal Dear Editor,

“Legalize same sex marriage” is the present cry. The moral question is ignored. Proponents and exponents alike quote the Bible. Do the functions of the body have a relationship to our soul? It seems to me that the relationship of the actions of the material part of man to the immaterial part defines morals. That agrees, in my opinion, with modern Psychology. Webster’s American Dictionary of 1828 defines Psychology as “A discourse or treatise on the human soul or the doctrine of the nature and properties of the soul.” That is expanded in the 1993 American Heritage Dictionary. [Psychology is] 4. “The branch of metaphysics that studies the soul, the mind and the relationship of the soul to the functions of the body.” Secondary education, by law, employs a team of psychologists in testing various student actions. School psychologists do not counsel students but only test them. Trained educators counsel students. That makes perfect sense as psychology deals with the relationship of the soul to the functions and actions of the body. In the biology class students are

taught by implication to ignore the soul. To admit the existence of the soul smacks of religion and that is not politically correct. Even if we dare not say there is a breakdown in morals in our culture we all know there is a breakdown. There are no moral standards being depicted by society but we blame parents. On the other hand Hebrews 12:9 states, “Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?” That is telling us that while it is natural for children to be subject to parents it should also be natural for you to be subject to God. Contributing to our cultural decline is the insistence in how close we physically resemble animals when the real distinction lies in the radical difference in the soul of man and animals. America’s only hope is facing the fact that man is composed of body and soul. Yours praying and teaching the real distinction between man and animals. Charles J. Arnett, Union

I’ll take two Grumpy Side of 60

by Bob Robinson Associate Editor

NEWS FLASH!!! I just found out my granddaughter was accepted to American University in D.C. She got a $48,000 scholarship to boot! Congratulations, Monica!! Okay. Proud grampa done. Now… back to “I’ll take two.” “If you could get an A in this class without showing up, would you still come to class?” Less than half the class raised their hands. “How many of you would NOT show up?” Most of them. That’s the answer I get from every class. Nothing to learn, especially in a public speaking class. “You’re going to college to get a better job. Right?” All nod. “You already know what you need to know. Right?” Hesitation, partial nods. “Your boss looks at your resume… Hey, you got an A in Public Speaking. Maybe you’re management material. How about talking to the managers in the other departments about how you would…” At that point I saw a few faces go pale. Students had already had two assignments requiring them to stand in front of the class and speak. A few looked like they were going to pass out. One later told me she almost threw up she was so scared. Some stuttered.

Some forgot what they were going to say. It was a perfectly ordinary start for a perfectly ordinary class. And just like their predecessors, they got the message. I asked a third time. Nearly all students said they’d be back. It was one of the Edison Core Values… Respect for Learning. Human Diversity. Ask most of my students and they’ll be happy to tell you there is none in rural, homogenous Darke County. No ethnic or big city diversity. Sure, we have both genders, go (or have gone) to different schools, live in town or in the country, not to mention individual diversity… Other than that? Pretty much the same. Only one student got close to something they’d been dealing with for eight weeks… having to interact with someone a half century removed from them. Most of these kids could be my grandkids. He noted the problem… “The instructor has a larger vocabulary than his students, and he sometimes uses words the students do not understand.” I grinned, remembering a comment I made in class. A student raised her hand. “What does that mean?” I used a different word. “Okay?” She shook her head. “I don’t know what that means, either.” I finally managed to come up with a word she understood. They’re dealing with a major human diversity

factor; they just haven’t figured it out yet. I made a comment once to an educator that one of my jobs was to get my students to ‘think’ and ‘question’ before offering their thoughts or opinions. He grinned and said “good luck with that.” Our classes have had several exercises… I offer the scenario then ask what they would do. First time around? They were decisive… “I’d do this! Or I’d do that!” Until they realized they were missing information. In some cases even putting themselves or others at risk. Eight weeks later they aren’t so quick to make that judgment call. Critical Thinking. I often tell my students I expect to learn from them as I expect them to learn from me. I think some get it, but not all. I also hope what they learn in their classes stick. My own experience as a kid was otherwise… like a dummy most of what I learned was in the school of hard knocks. Two student comments stood out. One young lady remembers the respect for learning lesson and now equates it to all of her classes. The other comment came from a student I had to chastise, along with his buddy, for talking while I was talking. Recently he said: “I did that all the time at school,” he said. “Nobody ever called me on it before.” He doesn’t do it now. Teachers love to say “one student at a time.” I totally agree. In this case, however, I’ll take two.

Buchy announces passage of Tax Overpayment Bill COLUMBUS—State Representative Jim Buchy (R-Greenville) yesterday announced legislation requiring the Ohio Department of Taxation to notify Ohio businesses when they overpay their taxes and provide automatic refunds in the form of credits toward future taxes has passed the Ohio House. Ohio Tax Commissioner Joe Testa has demonstrated strong support for the bill during its process through the House. Am. H.B. 402 adds the requirement to the tax commissioner’s statutory duties and functions that taxpayers be notified of overpayments so they can claim a refund or allow the money to be credited toward their future taxes. Under current law, overpayments may be refunded, but only upon request and only during the first three or four years, within the statute of limitations. The bill updates the law to ensure that taxpayers are notified no later than 60 days before the end of that three- or four-year period. Rep. Buchy said, “Business owners in this state are the backbone of employment and they make our economy thrive. They operate on thin margins, and it is only appropriate that the state government should not knowingly take mon-

ey from these ‘salt of the earth’ people. I look forward to the Senate’s further consideration of this bill because it is good for Ohio’s continued economic growth.” The bill seeks to protect Ohio taxpayers, specifically guaranteeing that businesses that overpay

their taxes get that money back into their hands, rather than in the hands of the state. With more money invested in Ohio’s businesses and workers, the state economy can better flourish.” Am. H.B. 402 now awaits consideration by the Ohio Senate.

FFA participates in Public Speaking GREENVILLE – Thomas Shaw, Victoria Nadar, Jack Garland and Hannah Grisez represented Greenville FFA in the Public Speaking Contests that was held on Jan. 30. They each spoke at the District 5 Sub-district Public Speaking Contest held recently at Tri-Village High School. Garland and Grisez participated in the Creed Contest while Shaw participated in the Extemporaneous Speaking Contest and Nadar participated in the beginning prepared speaking contest. The Extemporaneous Speech Contest consists of researching and writing a 5 to 7 minute speech on an agricultural topic in 30 minutes. The contest is designed to stimulate the interest of the FFA member in agriculture and leadership by giving them an opportunity to speak before an audience. Shaw placed second in this sub district contest and went on to the district 5 finals where he placed first in the district. He then progressed to the state semifinals where participated in the final four where he placed third in the State of Ohio. The Creed Contest consists of a student memorizing the five paragraphs

of the FFA Creed and presenting it to a panel of judges. This contest is designed to develop leadership and the ability to appear before a group by freshmen students as they become members of the FFA. He then answers three minutes worth of questions over his presentation. They are evaluated on his presentation, memorization, and response to the questions. Jack Garland received a gold rating and was fourth in the sub district contest. Hannah Grisez placed first in the sub district and placed second in the district where she then went on to the state semifinals placing her eighth in her division. Beginning prepared speaking is a contest made for members to practice their memorization skills. Members write their speech on an agricultural topic and then present it to a panel of judges where they are quizzed and questioned over their knowledge of the topic. Victoria Nadar placed first in the sub district contest which moved her into the district contest where she then received third place. Congratulations to all members involved in the public speaking contest!

Med Tech seniors get experience

BY DANIELLE MARKER GREENVILLE – President Dani Marker expresses “Opportunities are endless in Medical Tech Prep!” Four weeks out of our senior year, every student has the chance to job shadow in almost every desired career. Our instructor, Emily Powers, has done her absolute best to have us experience four different areas whether they are in the medical field or not. One could find us exploring any career from the hospital setting, to the police station, to a veterinarian’s office. This helps us figure out which occupations we may want to pursue or maybe even a job that do not suit us as well as another could.

These rotations are very significant to us as individuals, especially when we all came into this program with little idea of what we wanted to do after graduation. Vice president, Shelby Cassity states, “Coming into Med Tech my junior year I was never one to like the blood

Jade Anthony is shown with her mentor, Col. Cassie Bowling

and guts, now that I have gone through rotations I have realized that being a critical care nurse is my calling.” Powers has created professional relationships with area healthcare workers to provide them with quality opportunities. Powers adds, “The purpose of the rotations is

for students to explore careers they are interested in, hopefully these experiences lead them to make a decision about their future.”Now, after our exposure, we are all leaving with more experience, confidence, and a plan to start the next chapter of our lives.

Tylor Bowman is suiting up to disarm a bomb with SSgt. Gardner

Greenville SCM students job shadow at WPAFB GREENVILLE – On March 28, nine students from Greenville Career Tech Center’s Supply Chain Management were selected to participate in Wright Patterson Air force Base’s Annual Job Shadowing day.  The students were nominated by their instructor, Dara Buchy to participate in nine different career areas at WPAFB. The experience allowed students to work side by side with enlisted military people and live a day in their job. Some positions were, Supply Chain Management, Base Commander, Bomb Disarmament, C-17 and Contracting-Acquisitions. All of the students enjoyed their experience at the base. Students were met by their mentor for the day and escorted to the

job site. Many students enjoyed a driving tour of the base seeing, the multiple golf courses, the flight line and hangers, some base housing, the churches and other recreational locations. Junior Tylor Bowman was placed with SSgt Rachel Stadsvold of the 88th Bomb Disarmament. Mr. Bowman learned about the daily activities of being a member of the Bomb disarmament unit including the maintenance of equipment, training on robotics and what active field experience is like.   While visiting the group Mr. Bowman maneuvered a pobit, donned a disarmament suit and witnessed the detonation of a bomb.   “I loved everything about the day,” explained Bowman. “It was a great experi-

ence,” said Tanika Ray, “Seeing first hand helps when making decisions about my future.” Ms. Ray was placed with Major Kandi Bowling in Acquisitions. The day included learning the enormity of purchasing huge quantities of goods for everyone in the military.   Not only buying the goods, but then getting the goods delivered to the right location and at the right time. “Major Bowling was an awesome mentor to shadow. She explained her process and was really excited about  her job,” said Ms. Ray. Other students participating were Keisha Warner with   Doug Fields, Analyst,   Brady Dowler with  SSgt. Jerry Proctor, Contracting and Sales, Sydney Alcaraz with the Meteorology

department, Natalie Esarey with Major Michael Sierra, Supply Chain Management, Michaela Colby with SSgt. Roy, C-17, Anai Gutierez with Sgt. Lewis of the Security Forces,   and Jade Anthony with Col. Cassie Barlow, the base Commander for WPAFB. The Supply Chain Management program at Greenville’s Career Tech Center is a business program that teaches students business processes and procedures while encouraging them to experience many different   types of work through job shadowing experiences.   If your business is willing to host a student for a job shadow experience please contact  Dara Buchy   via email dbuchy@

Wave Channel 5 brings broadcast to Greenville GREENVILLE – Soon you, your neighbor, or anyone in Greenville will have the opportunity to be on television thanks to Greenville High School’s “Interactive Media Television” and the gracious support of the Career Tech Center. Coming soon, Greenville Public Access TV will have a working television studio. “We have the channel, we have the talent, we have ability, but we didn’t have the studio. It is with the studio that we pump the blood into the lifeline of bringing the community together through the medium of television” said Kent Holmes, a GHS 2011 graduate who is helping complete this project. Kicking off last month, GHS’s Interactive Media Television has been taking on a task for the good of the community; building a full-service television studio. A studio that can be used by anyone in the community to create their own television programming to be aired on Greenville Public Access TV, Wave Channel 5. The goal of any public access TV station is to not just inform the public about community events, but to educate the public through local programs, debates, interviews, and government meetings. It allows you to be involved in the community with-

Quality at Its Best

out leaving your couch! GHS’s “Interactive Media Television”, an immersive multimedia classroom, has taken programming control of GPAT (Greenville Public Access Television) for over a year. Run mainly by students, GPAT has adopted the nickname “Wave Channel 5”, and has created local programming such as high school sporting events and city council meetings. “A green screen, studio wall, cameras, lights, production equipment, and an infinite amount of ideas. This studio is your canvas. We will teach you how to hold the brush, and you become the artist,” Holmes said. The studio is being built in Greenville High School and those wanting to have their own show will have to reserve a time. Students in the Interactive Media Television program will learn the “ins” and “outs” of the studio, creating local live news programming. “Nothing beats creating live television. The excitement, the jitters, and the fast-paced environment. It’s the deciding factor for which side of multimedia these kids want to purse in college,” Holmes added. Kent Holmes, a senior at Ball State University studying Telecommunications Sales and Promo-

Students are nearly ready to show the community the ropes to create their own television program.

tions, decided to use his senior capstone project to give back to his community. “In the honors college at Ball State, you have to complete an honors thesis project. This is anything you can imagine. Some write musicals, some make studies for a government agency, and some give back to their communities. The only requirement is that it must be tied in with your major. As I began to ponder, it came clear to me that helping IMTV was a perfect fit! Most Indiana high schools offer student run TV and radio stations. Students from Indiana wanting to study communications have an upper hand by having real experience at their high school. I was saddened that Ohio doesn’t push immersive

learning the same as Indiana. That’s when it hit me, I can help Greenville High School create a real immersive learning environment while giving back to the community that helped foster and grow my love of film and television.” Alongside the studio, GPAT Wave Chanel 5 is excited to offer opportunities for companies to sponsor programming, weather, and other elements of the station to brand themselves to the community. Prices are available upon request.

AHS Drama Dept. will present Harvey

ARCANUM – The Arcanum High School Drama Department is proud to present Harvey by Mary Chase with special permission of Dramatist Play Service, New York, NY. The play will take place on April 11 and 12, 7 p.m. in the school cafeteria. When Elwood P. Dowd starts to introduce his imaginary friend, Harvey, a sixand-a-half-foot rabbit, to guests at a society party, his sister, Veta, has seen as much of his eccentric behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her daughter, Myrtle Mae, and their family from future embarrassment. Problems arise, however, when Veta herself is mistakenly

assumed to be on the verge of lunacy when she explains to doctors that years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also! The doctors commit Veta instead of Elwood, but when the truth comes out, the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion. When he shows up at the sanitarium looking for his lost friend Harvey, it seems that the mild-mannered Elwood’s delusion has had a strange influence on more that one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all. Come support the AHS Drama Department in their production of Harvey. Maybe you’ll see Harvey too.

Bradford Ohio Railroad Museum will reopen for 2014 BRADFORD - The Bradford Ohio Railroad Museum will reopen for the 2014 season April 13 at 2 p.m. with a dedication and ribbon cutting for the Children’s Learning Center. The museum purchased the historic 1919 former bank building at the corner of Miami Avenue and Main Street in 2006. Since that time efforts have concentrated on transforming the interior into the exhibit and meeting space for the museum. The museum was formed in 2002. Marilyn Kosier approached the Bradford city council on Good Friday of 2002 regarding the desire to create a railroad museum to preserve the railroad heritage of the town. The idea for the museum was planted by her father Herbert Kosier at a Bradford Railroader’s basketball game that she and her dad attended while watching a game her neph-

ews and his grandsons were playing. A board of local residents was formed and the museum incorporated as a 501 c 3 nonprofit corporation. The first goal was to purchase and restore the only remaining railroad structure the BF Tower. This was accomplished in 2003. Representative Diana Fessler saw the potential of the museum as an economic stimulus to the revitalization of the downtown. She was on board with the mission of the museum and helped secure a capital appropriation to restore the tower. This was finished in 2008. Efforts turned once again to the main headquarters building. Representative Fessler again helped secure funding to restore the outside of the structure. This was accomplished and plans were made to renovate and restore the interior. Architect Candace Goodall came to the

bank building shortly after the exterior was completed and saw the potential. Her vision to open up the mezzanine level for additional exhibit and meeting space was completed in 2010 by the Swafford Construction Company of Troy. It soon became apparent that a separate children’s area devoted to K- 6 was needed. Once again the museum turned to Architect Goodall for guidance. She met with the Miami County building inspector and a plan to convert the basement into the children’s area was underway. The museum retained the Swafford Construction Company to complete the work. The museum will be dedicating and opening the children’s area April 13, at 2 p.m. The dedication will recognize the donors who have contributed to the interior restoration and renovation. The museum is working with Exhibit Concepts

of Vandalia on permanent exhibits that will tell the unique history of Bradford. Few today are aware of the vast railroad operation that once occupied the center of the Village. The museum has been working to build a model of the railroad yards to convey that part of the railroad history. Thanks to the hard work of Rick Miller and Mike Desch the model is nearing completion. The N- Scale model will be ready for display at the opening. The Salute to the Railroader’s will be held to honor the past, present and future railroaders at the opening. The Bradford Ohio Railroad Museum could not be as far along in development if it were not for the generous donation from its supporters and the countless hours of the members and volunteers. The dedication is a moment to pause and recognize and thank all those who contribute to his preservation effort.

Stewart/Slack earn promoter’s award ROSSBURG – Eldora Speedway owner Tony Stewart and general manager Roger Slack were named the 2013 Promoters of the Year by the North American 410 Sprint Car Poll. The voting panel of media members, promoters, sanctioning officials and manufacturers selected Stewart for the first time in the promoter catego-

ry. Slack was previously named Promoter of the Year in 2007 while at The Dirt Track @ Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway. The duo joins Eldora founder Earl Baltes, who received the award six times between 1986 and 2004, until selling the legendary half-mile high banked clay oval to Stewart in time for the 2005 season.

“This is a real honor to be recognized in the Promoter category. Owning a historic facility like Eldora is a huge responsibility and not something we take lightly as we plan for the future,” said Stewart, the three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion. “I am especially proud of Roger and everyone at Eldora.  They complement each other, work together

as a team and the gains we have made the past few years enhancing the fan experience demonstrates their commitment to excellence each time we open the gates.” This marks Stewart’s eighth honor by the North American Sprint Car Poll dating to 2001. His Tony Stewart Racing (TSR) teams have each been voted Team of the Year in the 410 and non-winged ranks on three different occasions. Stewart garnered the Outstanding Contribution to Sprint Car Racing award in 2003. This year’s voting tally ended in a tie with Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway, where Stewart has earned eight Knoxville Nationals titles as an owner.  TSR driver Donny Schatz has seven Nationals triumphs over the past eight years, five of which were for TSR. Schatz was also honored this week with the 410 Sprint Car Driver of the Year award.

LOCAL Support for Red Cross is a laughing matter

SUNDAY, april 6, 2014

BY RYAN BERRY MANAGING EDITOR GREENVILLE – While the University of Dayton Flyers were appearing in the Elite 8 NCAA Basketball Tournament for the first time in 30 years the Darke County Chapter of the American Red Cross was hosting one of the largest crowds ever for its 14th annual Comedy and Caring fundraising event. Hundreds of visitors enjoyed good food from Romer’s Catering, raffle and silent auction prizes from local busi-

nesses and individuals and a great night of comedy with Steve Iott. Prior to Iott taking the stage, Alex Mikos, local radio personality and funny man, took the stage to warm up the audience with his brand of comedy. Iott, a Michigan native, has appeared on A&E, Comedy Central and is a regular guest on the Bob & Tom radio show. A new feature to Comedy & Caring was the Third Act. According to Lynne Gump, executive

director of the Darke County Chapter of the American Red Cross, four local “Everyday Heroes” agreed to enter into the “most dangerous of battles.” Matt Aultman, Steve Baker, Mike Stegall and myself agreed to enter our names in the battle. The person who raised the most money would have the opportunity to appear on stage with Iott. Aultman, Baker and I proved to be the best campaigners and earned Stegall the opportunity to appear on

stage in an improvisational sketch. The chapter thanked supporters of the event, “We hope you have learned a little more about the programs and services of the American Red Cross and that you’ll continue to support the wonderful work of our dedicated volunteers. We will continue to proudly serve Darke County, our Country and the world with life-saving services, preparedness and disaster response.”

Waves of Pride showcases student talent

BY BOB ROBINSON ASSOC. EDITOR GREENVILLE – Approximately 2,000 students, family members and community supporters attended Greenville City Schools’ annual Waves of Pride and Art Expo March 27. They were entertained throughout the evening by student music groups as they viewed displays of art, completed projects by students at all grade levels and discussed the different programs with Greenville teachers. “This is a huge event,” said Greenville Supt. Doug Fries. “It’s probably our biggest annual event to get our community involved with what their local district is doing.” The teacher who started

it 32 years earlier, Jane Cleary, was honored by the students as she will be retiring at the end of the year. “It seems like yesterday,” she said of the inaugural event. “The first year we had 110 parents and kids. It kept growing… more and more popular. Other groups asked to join in. We’re one of the few schools that does anything like this.” After 35 years of teaching Cleary said it was time to retire and explore other pursuits. “This is such a wonderful showcase,” she said. “I just really would appreciate continuing to support the arts… all of them.” Fries welcomed parents and supporters as

they arrived. He also noted the upcoming renewal levy in May, making sure all knew it was simply a continuation of the currently ongoing levy. “There will be no new taxes,” he emphasized. “Everything stays the same.” Musical performances were provided by Jazz Scene I, Choir 7 Ensemble, Philharmonic Strings, Choir 8 Ensemble, Jazz Scene II and the Wavaires. A representative of the high school’s NJROTC was on hand and individual students had display booths to show their artwork. Throughout the high school gym various types of art, including a huge box of “tissues” were on display.

Students logged in all visitors to the event; one seemed to be caught off guard by the camera. (Bob Robinson photo)

BY BOB ROBINSON ASSOC. EDITOR GREENVILLE – “In the old system black and white photos were used. Ink fingerprints were often smeared… information sometimes hard to read,” said Ed Floyd, Greenville Moose Lodge volunteer. No longer. Technology now allows parents and caretakers to obtain a CD with a high quality color photo, a physical description (including distinguishing features), digital fingerprints and a list of scars, tattoos, artificial limbs, birth marks and so on. And the technology is coming to Greenville courtesy of Moose Lodge 329. On May 3 the Lodge will hold an “EZ ID” event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. A special laptop computer will be used to “register” children and seniors. Information is burned onto the CD which is then turned over to the parent or guardian. Nothing is retained on the laptop so the CD would have to be stored in a safe place. In addition, a DNA swab can be provided by the Darke County Sheriff’s Dept.,

one of several local agencies planning to be on hand for the event. Also expected are the Greenville Police, Greenville Fire, Greenville Township Emergency, Darke County Red Cross, Darke County EMA (Emergency Management) and Darke County Veterans Services. “Kids get to come in and meet Rage and Rocko,” Floyd said, “Sparkey the fire dog and the police department’s McGruff the Crisis Dog will be here.” He added Tommy the Moose is scheduled to be there, along with Care Flight between noon and 2 p.m. As always the Care Flight schedule could be altered if an emergency call occurs. “It will take about 10 minutes per individual,” Floyd said. “We’re serving a free lunch of hot dogs, chips, cookie and drink. Kids can eat while parents fill out the forms.” Floyd is hoping to create CD’s for 500 to 600 kids and seniors, noting if needed the Lodge will even extend the event another day. “I’m proud of the Greenville area,” he said.

“Whenever I’ve asked for help I’ve received it. All the Greenville schools are on board with this; I’m hoping the county districts will also want to be involved.” He called for volunteers from the community as they will need help with parking and hospitality. “Moose is about public service,” he continued. “Helping your brothers. Looking out for the kids. This is something we need to be doing.” The system was developed by Safe Surfin’ EZ Child/Elderly ID System. It is co-sponsored by Moose International. Floyd noted the two organizations are attempting to address the 1.3 million children who go missing, and the 125,000 elderly who wander away from home each year. “Moose is a Family Fraternity,” Floyd said. “Our goal is to serve Greenville and Darke County.” Schools and volunteers wanting to be involved should contact Floyd at or leave a message for him at the Greenville Moose, 548-2662.

Sheriff’s Patrol has good attendance for annual show BY RYAN BERRY MANAGING EDITOR GREENVILLE – Darke County Sheriff Toby Spencer, Commissioners Diane Delaplane, Mike Rhoades and Mike Stegall and State Representative Jim Buchy welcomed visitors to the 52nd annual Darke County Sheriff’s Patrol Home & Sport Show on March 28. The Sheriff’s Patrol is the volunteer arm of the Darke County Sheriff’s Department. Zero tax dollars are used to fund the unit, which relies on fundraisers, such as the Home & Sport Show, and providing security for events such as high school athletics, Eldora Speedway and the Darke County Fair. Patrol volunteers are required to patrol the roads of Darke County one weekend a month. Spencer praised the patrol, “This is a valuable unit to have under my control.” He continued, “Without them we could

not do some of the jobs we do.” Rep. Buchy continued the accolades by pointing out Darke County is a great place to live because of the service provided by the Patrol. Commissioner Rhoades called the Patrol, “an essential part of law enforcement.” According to Gaylen Blosser, co-organizer, this year’s event was the largest of the past few years. He noted all of the booths were full with plenty of displays and vendors. The highlight of the event was

entertainment from Higgins-Madewell, voted the Dayton area’s best rock band for three consecutive years. Joining Darke County Sheriff Patrol deputies as the other co-organizer was Jerry Bunch. With fairly decent weather, attendance seemed to be up. Blosser believes Friday night was the best attendance the show has seen in years and there was a steady stream of visitors on Saturday and Sunday.

Twisters All Stars earn first national championship BY RYAN BERRY MANAGING EDITOR ARCANUM – Since taking the floor as a competitive cheer squad in 2004, the Arcanum based Twisters All Stars have had a lot of success, but none as great as this year. On March 29, the squad traveled to Indianapolis, IN to compete in the US Finals. The result was a national championship in Prep Senior Level 2. Coached by Tonya Mikesell, of Tip Tap Toe School of Dance, the Twisters have earned bids nearly every year to compete in the championship, but were never able to go. She pointed out it is sometimes hard to work around the schedule of some of the

families. However, they were able to replace a couple of the members with substitutes to make this year one to remember for the cheerleaders. The Twisters range in age from 10-18 years old and attend area schools, including Arcanum, Franklin Monroe, TriVillage, Greenville and St. Mary’s. This year’s team had its ups and downs, but “They worked through some issues with injured athletes, substitute athletes, scheduling conflicts, and changing choreography,” Mikesell said. The team competed in seven competitions and came away with six first place wins and a second place finish. They earned

two bids to national competitions. In addition to the U.S. Finals they could have competed at THE ONE Cheer and Dance Championship. Although their season is over, the team could still finish as the Overall U.S. Champion. Beginning this year, the U.S. Finals is using its Real Time Rankings to determine teams in the Champions Challenge round of competition. The performance videos of the first place teams from the divisions are re-judged to determine the highest scoring team. That team will move on to the next round – The Champions Challenge. The top teams from all locations will be re-judged to determine

the Overall U.S. Champion. These teams will be rewarded with custom

rings. This year, each of the Twisters earned two

jackets and a t-shirt for their victories at various competitions.

The Arcanum Twisters All Stars came home from Indianapolis on March 29 with a national championship at the U.S. Finals.

There are many small creatures in the soil such as earthworms, wood lice, centipedes, etc. that contributes to a healthy ecosystem by converting dead material into useful material. One great way to improve your soil is cultivate 6 to 12 inches deep which is your richest layer of soil. This layer is where the plant’s roots

grow, and cultivating the soil deeply will allow air and water to penetrate the soil to the plants’ roots. A lot of home owners have great soil for their gardens, but some gardeners have sandy or too much clay in their soil. You can improve your sandy or clay soil with compost, manure, and peat. Plus, even good soil can always benefit from these amendments. Before gardening, make sure to remove all excess stones, any remaining clods, and weeds. These are just a few modifications for a healthy producing garden for this coming year!

Getting a tax refund? Let a financial planner help BY JOHN NORTH PRESIDENT/CEO BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU DAYTON – It’s tax time. Every year, millions say they’re going to save at least some of their tax refund. If you’re one of millions who don’t know what to do with your tax return, consider a financial planner if you don’t already have one. Your Better Business Bureau offers tips to help you find a reputable financial planner. According to, more than 83 million Americans file a tax return each year. Each year, the average tax refund is $3,000 per family. Last year, more than 25,000 inquiries were recorded locally about financial planners. The previous year, about 14,000 inquiries were made, an increase of 44 percent about this industry. Nationally, more than 5,200 complaints and 956,000 inquiries were recorded in the U.S. and Canada against financial planners with your BBB. When choosing a financial planner, you’ll want to choose one offering objective, reliable advice for you and your money. To help you find one that best fits your needs, your Better Business Bureau offers these tips: * Research the financial planner and set up an in-person interview. * Check with friends and family. A great way to find a trustworthy financial planner is by word of mouth. * Ask the financial

planner for references from satisfied customers. * Find out what kinds of services and products are offered. * Ask if the financial planner belongs to any professional organizations. * Check qualifications and if they’re current. A certified financial planner (CFP) has passed a rigorous exam and is required to pursue continuing education credits. Also, check if they’re registered with the Ohio Division of Securities (SEC) if a planner gives out investment advice. * Set up future meetings with your financial planner to make sure your plan still fits your goals. * Don’t give into high-pressure sales tactics. Any reputable investment company will let you take your time to make a wise decision. * Get everything in writing and don’t sign anything until you understand it. Remember, there’s several types of financial planners, some charge by the hour or a flat rate. Other financial planners earn money through commission on projects sold or a combination of fees and commissions. If you have any questions regarding this industry, get help from your BBB, such as a list of BBB Accredited financial planning services and reviews on ones you’re considering.
