County to take bids to sell old jail By MELINDA KRICK Progress Editor PAULDING – Last week, it appeared that days were numbered for the old Paulding County Jail. The 137-year-old building was scheduled for demolition soon, but developments on Monday have provided a stay of execution. Last Wednesday, workers from the county engineer’s office were removing records and other items being stored in the jail., which had been renting space on the radio tower at the jail,

has moved its equipment to another location. On Friday, a business that previously had expressed interest in buying the jail was contacted and the owner said he is still interested. A conference call with the county commissioners was set up for Monday. A TV crew from Channel 21 in Fort Wayne came to Paulding on Sunday to do a story on the jail status. About 12-15 citizens were present from Paulding, Antwerp and Woodburn. The reporter then toured the jail with Commissioners Tony

Zartman and Fred Pieper. The conference call meeting Monday morning was brief. Pieper, who is now chairman of the board of commissioners, took the phone call from Jeff Hollis, owner of All Trade Restorations. Hollis told the group attending the meeting that he is interested in putting in a bid. Hollis said he had worked as foreman on a crew that worked on the courthouse, library and a few other buildings on the square last fall. Hollis has started his own business. “We would love to restore the jail

to its original look,” Hollis said. They would like to restore it and make it their headquarters. The company has great interest in the building and feels it would be a perfect place for them. The commissioners cannot simply accept an offer; the property must be advertised for bids, said Prosecutor Joe Burkard. The legal ad must be published for four consecutive weeks. Its first appearance is in today’s Progress (see Page 13A). Bids are scheduled to be See OLD JAIL, page 2A

Grand jury indicts nine BALD EAGLES BUILDING A NEST – Roger Lilly of Antwerp shares this photo he took early last week. A pair of bald eagles is building a nest along the Maumee River in Paulding County. He doesn’t want to disclose the exact location due to concerns about people scaring off the birds. This may be the first bald eagle nest in the county. An Ohio Department of Natural Resources map of nesting bald eagles in Ohio for 2011 shows sites in surrounding counties, but none in Paulding County. The closest has been at Power Dam in Defiance County.

A Paulding County grand jury returned indictments against nine persons on Thursday. The individuals will be arraigned in Paulding County Common Pleas Court. Those indicted were: • Daric L. Fraley, 19, Cecil, one count aggravated burglary, first-degree felony. • Amber L. Vance, 23, Paulding County Jail, one

count aggravated burglary, first-degree felony. • Mark S. Seibert II, 31, Paulding County Jail, one count aggravated burglary, felony of the first degree. • Heather L.

Oakwood EMS coordinator announces resignation By BILL SHERRY Correspondent OAKWOOD – The Oakwood Village Council met on Jan. 14, with all members present. Midway through the meeting they went into executive session to discuss personnel. Following the executive meeting, it was announced that Oakwood EMS coordinator Susan Barron had advised council of her resignation to be effective Feb. 1. A discussion followed the lengthy executive session as coun-

cil, Police Chief Mark Figert, Fire Chief Kenny Thomas, former EMS coordinator Pam Erford and Mayor Bud Henke discussed the possibilities of a new EMS coordinator. There was some discussion regarding putting the Oakwood Fire and EMS together, but it was determined that this would not be a good time because things were not ready. Pam Erford, who currently completes the paperwork for the squad commented, “The Oakwood EMS is shorthanded now, so we must be

careful.” Henke agreed and asked to have a continuation of the meeting on Jan. 21, to give them some time to come to grips with what had just happened. Council agreed and voted to have a continuation of Monday’s meeting at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 21, to further discuss the needs of the EMS. In other business it was voted by paper ballot for council president for 2013. Todd Dangler won the election and will retain his position

as council president for another year. It was reported in the minutes there had been a special council meeting on Jan. 3, to hear committee member appointments and to pass resolution #13-R-01 providing for an Enterprise Zone. Thomas told council that things are pretty quiet at this time and that he would have 2012 numbers available for the next meeting. The final arrangements have been worked out for the replacement fire truck. The final cost of

the truck was $114,000. It will have a one year warranty agreement following delivery in June. The Central Collection Agency Tax Advisors will be in the area to assist with tax problems again this year. They will be available March 11 in Paulding and March 18 in Oakwood. The next meeting will be the continuation of the Jan. 14 meeting and will be at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 21, in the village council chamber. The next regular meeting will be at 6:30 p.m., Jan. 28.

Among the internship work he completed was organizing the storm-related paperwork following the June 29 derecho storm that left most of the Paulding-Putnam service territory without power. This work was extremely important for the cooperative in applying for reimbursement for storm-related work from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Carnahan is a senior at the University of Toledo. He will graduate with a major in accounting and minor in finance.

On Sunday, a Fort Wayne TV crew interviewed the commissioners and those hoping to save the jail from demolition.


Continued from Page 1A opened Feb. 13. Zartman thanked Hollis for his willingness to put in a bid. He also expressed the importance of the buyer maintaining the building. “We welcome anything you can do and look forward to working with you,” Zartman told Hollis. Pieper said everyone is thrilled with the interest in buying the property. “There’s no doubt in my mind they will do a good job,” he added. Kim Sutton, who is incoming president of the John Paulding Historical Society, offered the group’s assistance in any way possible. Since the public was made aware of the jail’s imminent destruction, she has compiled a list of people “willing to help sweep floors, wash windows, whatever is needed to save our jail.” She added that “the jail anchors our historic downtown” and residents need to value our heritage. The legal notice states that the commissioners will be accepting sealed bids for the former jail and two lots. The bid must contain a plan for intended use of the property. The commissioners reserve the right to reject any and all

bids. In a phone interview with the Progress, Hollis said the jail building is sound and it appears to be in good condition and had been maintained

up until the time it was closed. “It has great potential,” he said. “It’s a no-brainer why no one wouldn’t want to take it over.”

A historical photograph of the jail after it was completed in the late 1870s. This is an example of Second Empire architecture, which is extremely rare in our county. One potential buyer would like to restore it to this look.

The Amish Cook By: Lovina Eicher sledding in our hayfield except for Jacob, Joe, Emma, and I. We stayed in the warm house and played board games. Timothy had a sled tied behind his pony and gave some pretty fast rides around the hay field. It looked liked it was a challenge to stay on the sled when he took some fast curves. They also had fun sliding down the hill in the sled. The snow made some nice gliding downhill. When they were all tired from sledding they came back in to warm up. We set snacks out for everyone. Emma brought a lot of snacks too. I heated up the leftover chicken and wings from the evening before. The rest of the afternoon was spent playing games. Daughter Elizabeth went back to work at the factory on Wednesday. The children go back to school on Monday. Husband Joe will head back to work at the factory, also on Monday. Daughter Susan has two more ponies here to train. One is a little miniature pony and the other is a bigger sized pony like our pony Stormy. Her friend Moseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad gave Susan the pony to keep for her own. She is excited and eager to train her. Benjamin and Susan have

the pony, which is named Roxy, hitched to the pony cart now for the first time. It always makes me a little nervous until she has the ponies going good. Benjamin, 13, enjoys helping her train the ponies. Jacob, Emma and family went to Berne, Ind. to have Christmas with Jacobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family. While there they stopped in to say hi to brother Amos, Nancy and family. Amos sent along a roll of his homemade summer sausage he made. It was very good and disappeared quite fast around here. We appreciated it very much. Looking for an easy cupcake recipe? Try this!

Auction would remove liability

Dear Editor: I have a comment about the demolition of the Paulding County Jail. I believe that it would be in the best interest of the county to offer the jail and the “entire” property up for absolute auction. If the commissioners are concerned that the jail is a hazard to the public, why not sell it for whatever price can be realized. An auction and sale of the property would remove the liability from the county and realize at least some funds that can be put INTO the general fund. There are zoning laws and regulations that would cover the “public” safety and maybe, just maybe, someone will buy the property and do something with the jail and the quarter block that sits directly west of the jail. If the purchaser does nothing with the jail, then eventually the zoning laws kick in and the owner will have to tear the building down. The upside to the whole auction scenario is that the build-

ing would no longer be a liability to the county and that maybe the jail and the quarter block to the west would be developed for the betterment of the county. Anna M. Free Paulding

This building is one of the most historically significant buildings in Paulding County. Let’s give the Paulding County taxpayers a voice in this decision. We are Paulding County, not Washington D.C. I would gladly pledge $200 per year to go towards the future upkeep of this historical building.

In My Opinion

The Christmas decorations What is the tradition at your house? Do you start taking down and putting away the Christmas decorations the day after Christmas? Is Christmas Eve the last night you throw the switch to turn on the Christmas lights? Do you keep the festive lights lit until New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day? Do you unhook the power but wait for a warm springIn My like day to actually take the Opinion outside decorations down? Do you start undecorating the Christmas tree in the livBill ing room the day after Sherry Christmas? Maybe you are one of those families that leave the decorations up all year long. There are all manners of handling the putting up and taking down of our Christmas decorations. Remember back in late November or early December when our thoughts were entwined with visions of sugar plums, Christmas cookies, gifts, a snow covered landscape, the Christ Child in a manger, angels, Christmas carols being played on the car radio and all the colorful lights that wink and blink at us as we drive through the countryside? We are almost finished taking down and putting away our Christmas decorations and now it is time to take down and put away the mistletoe strategically placed so anyone who wanted could get a kiss from a loved one or maybe even a close friend or neighbor. As I take the mistletoe down, I recall that there wasn’t even one kiss this year for me, so into the box it goes until next year, or maybe I will just not get it out next year and save myself the heartache of not getting even one kiss. Do you suppose God feels the same way? How many times as you put the decorations away for the year did you stop and thank God for His gift to the world of His Son Jesus Christ? Do you think He was disappointed? That is why we have a Christmas holiday or has that been pushed aside so we can get the gift we want, have a good time or visit family and friends? Friends, just like the mistletoe was placed so maybe an older guy like me could get a kiss from someone special, there is a reason for the Christmas holiday and that is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ the Son of God, who would teach us about His Heavenly Father and then die for our salvation. I urge you as you put those decorations back in the box to await another year, another season, don’t put the reason for the season in one of the boxes and forget Him until next year. Let’s keep Jesus alive in our lives all year long. I realize that taking down the Christmas decorations has little to do with Sunday, but there is something here we need to spend time thinking about, I hope to see you in church this Sunday; we might have something in common.

Community Is the January thaw real? Antwerp veterans’ book Oh, we love our traditions, weather folklore, and old wives’ tales, don’t we? The woolly worms have predicted a cold winter (aren’t they all?) as long as you encountered the right kind of caterpillar. We’re heading into the down side of January and we just experienced the “January thaw.” Just what is that anyway? Is it real or just another one of those folklore things? Do things really thaw out? Yes, Virginia, there is a January thaw. And yes, some things do thaw out. Towards the end of January, the temperatures warm up enough to melt snow and the top layer of ground thaws sufficiently enough to make things a little slushy and muddy. You start thinking that maybe spring will be early this year, but then you remember how much of a tease Old Man Winter can be. I remember when we had our exchange student from Ecuador about 20 years ago. Karina thought when the calendar announced March 21 as the first day of spring, we wouldn’t have snow anymore. It would suddenly be warm and the flowers would bloom and we could put away our coats. Since she lives just 10 miles from the equator in the Andes Mountains, every day there is pretty much the same – like spring – perfect

In The Garden

By Kylee Baumle and glorious, so this change of seasons thing was new to her. I told her how the weather changes gradually and if the change is too abrupt, we run the risk of tornadoes. Before winter was really over, she had a better understanding of things. The January thaw is a recognized weather event called a “blip” or “singularity.” That means it happens more regularly than it would if by chance. It occurs mainly in the Great Lakes, New England, and Maritime Provinces of North America during the third week of January, on average. For several days, the temperatures reach levels that are at least 10 degrees above normal and at these latitudes, they’re above freezing, causing things to thaw somewhat. “The January thaw is special because it opens winter’s door a crack just when it seems that the ice has locked it tight.

Through that crack one can see the certainty of March and April somewhere up ahead. The worst one can say about the January thaw is that it never lasts. It lifts the heart, then drops it with a cold thud when the warm spell passes and the chill congeals the earth again. But when January does relent, even for a day or two, we can celebrate, cautiously.” – Hal Borland, in Sundial of the Seasons In some winters we don’t experience a January thaw, and while it’s not entirely known why it happens, its occurrence is real and recognized by meteorologists, just as is Indian summer, a similar event that happens on the other side of winter. Now we could have a blizzard next week, and next month we might have a day or two of what I call “teaser days,” when the temperatures warm again as we start our transition into spring. In any case, the days are getting longer now and soon we’ll see the brave little snowdrops pushing their way through the soil. Hang on – spring will be here before we know it. (Hurry, please.)

Flexible cash rent for your farm

A Penny For Your Thoughts....

By Jim Lopshire OSU Extension educator Fluctuating markets and uncertain yields make it difficult to arrive at a fair cash rental rate in advance of each crop year. To address this problem, some landowners and tenants use flexible lease agreements in which the final rental rate is not determined until after the crop is harvested. The final rental rate is based on actual prices and/or yields attained each year. A recent survey showed that flexible leases accounted for nearly 12 percent of all cash leases in Iowa. Flexible leases have the following advantages: 1. The actual rent paid adjusts automatically as yields or prices fluctuate; 2. Risks are shared between the owner and the tenant, as are profit opportunities; and 3. Landowners are paid in cash – they do not have to be involved in the decisions about crop inputs or grain marketing. The North Central Farm Management Extension Committee has recently updated three lease bulletins that have been widely used by

AM I AN ANTIQUE? Isn’t it funny when we look back at the past and say, “Those were the best times of my life.” Without telling my age, I will say when I go back to the late ’50s and early ’60s, I think of that era as the best times of my life and they are my “good old days.” Life seemed like it moved at a much slower pace or did it seem that way because I was younger? I remember playing with books which had cut-out paper dolls and clothes in them. I would cut out the clothes and fold the tabs around the neck and dress the paper doll. I made doll houses out of cardboard boxes and lived in a world of “pretend.” I remember sitting for hours reading “Little House on the Prairie,” “Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates and “Grimm’s Fairy Tales.” The long lazy days of summer would find me lying on the ground chewing on a clover blossom or picking a milk weed and blowing the silk from them. As a teenager, I loved the poodle skirts, rock and roll, the old 45s, and yes, even our

black and white TV. I recall my grandparents had a crank style telephone in the 1950s. In order to talk on it, I had to stand on a chair. To the younger people, these items are unheard of and are considered antiques. It is strange how many young people have never seen a telephone with a dial, let alone a crank. Most kids and even young adults would probably not know an 8-track tape player, a TV without a remote or a wringer-type washer. To the younger generation our mementoes from the ’50s are now their historical items and it looks like I must have lived in the dark ages. My own kids look back at the ’70s and ’60s calling them their “good old days.” Yikes. Although, I still liked the ’70s and ’80s, my best memories occurred during my “good old days.” My mama used to look back at the 1930s and ’40s and call them her “good old days,” while my grandparents looked at the 1920s and called them their “the good old days.” It just depends on our age and what things we had avail-

able to us which makes up all of our good old days. Today’s younger generation are very technical minded and are adept at playing with an iPad or a smart phone. They are experts at electronic games, computers and remote controlled toys. However, looking ahead to the future those iPads, iPods and smart phones may be setting in a store or on eBay and be classifed as an “antique.” Everything changes and as the commericial used to say, “we’ve come a long ways baby.” What do you determine to be an antique? What do you think of as the “good old days?” Let me know and I’ll give you a Penny for Your Thoughts.

Every gift counts By Lisa McClure Paulding County Area Foundation Remember the last time you thought to yourself, “Somebody ought to do something?” Maybe it was a major injustice, or some minor irritant, but it spurred a recognition that there was an opportunity to seize? Recall, too, your next step, which was to do nothing. These are the words of a friend of mine who recently published an article in Our Ohio magazine. He went on to say that one of the reasons we don’t engage is we don’t know enough about what it is we should be engaged in. Maybe we don’t see the personal relevance, we don’t know how to get started, or question the return on the investment. The Paulding County Area Foundation can be the tool to seize an opportunity and to engage oneself by giving back to the community simply by a donation. Funds that are administered through the foundation are redistributed

100 percent back into the county. The funds help students with scholarships, help to maintain parks and the county courthouse, assist young adults through the 4-H programs and provide funds to improve and maintain the fairgrounds. There are funds to help maintain branch libraries and an endowment fund that generates grant monies to help other 501c3 organizations within the county. Certainly, there are many reasons to become a donor to the Paulding County Area Foundation. The most important is the opportunity to improve lives and the community. The Paulding County Area Foundation’s purpose is to receive, grow and distribute gifts for the benefit of the people of Paulding County. Every gift counts. Consider making a contribution to one of the many established funds or creating a new fund. If you have questions about foundation funds, please 419-399-8296 or stop by the office at 101 E.

One of the main considerations should be the rates of appreciation we are seeing in many investments, particularly farm ground. Last week, a public auction saw farm ground fetch nearly $10,000 an acre in southern Van Wert County. In just a year’s time, farm ground has increased in value by roughly $2,000 an acre. This appreciate is certainly higher than the government’s definition of inflation. Further, many economists are stating that they do not foresee a slowdown or reversal in the price for farm ground. From a farmer’s perspective, now is the time to update the estate planning strategies, addressing how any additional farm ground should be titled. For instance, a father allowing a son to take title to farm ground can prevent further appreciation in value to the father’s estate. And a wellstructured intra-family loan can provide gifting opportunities that do not bite into the lifetime gifting maximum of five million dollars at all. In summary, Congress has allowed greater wiggle room for estate tax avoidance. However, it is up to you and your qualified attorney to navigate the evolving details and proceed prudently.

Ironically, this year, the church celebration of the Feast of Epiphany actually fell on a Sunday that represents the date, Jan. 6. For many around the world, the concept of “Epiphany” adds a depth to Christmas that many of us in the United States don’t fully experience. In many places, Christmas would have just ended on Jan. 6, following a 12-day celebration that actually began on Dec. 25, known as the, “first day of Christmas.” What we have come to know as, “Christmas Day,” has been celebrated in many places as the initiation of a 12-day celebration of Christmas, which culminates with the opening of gifts on Jan. 6. Over the years, Epiphany Day has been a traditional observance of the day that the three wise men visited Jesus, bringing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, which were to suggest that Jesus is our prophet, priest and king. Because they were Gentiles, it was also implied that this was the first introduction of Jesus to the Gentile world, the epiphany or full realization of the Christ child. Over the years, the word “epiphany” has also taken on a very special meaning that describes a unique and rare experience that many of us enjoy only on rare occasions


A Tax Cliff Postlude: The Dust Settles on Estate Tax Planning January 1, 2013 found estate planners on firmer ground than many thought possible. With the elimination of the Ohio Estate Tax on January 1, the only estate tax consideration is at the federal level. On December 31, Congress made the “Bush Estate Tax Cuts” permanent. This is great news for estate planning. As part of the “tax cliff” agreement, Congress made the estate tax exemptions permanent at the five million dollar mark, tying the five million dollars to inflation. Further, the amount one can gift during lifetime remains tied with the amount of property you leave at the time of death. This means that one can either gift up to five million dollars during lifetime or one can leave up to five million dollars at death without paying any estate tax. For instance, if you gift one million dollars of farm ground to your children at life, you can only leave four million dollars of at the time of death. Anything gifted or inherited at above a total of five million dollars will be taxed either at gift tax rates or at estate tax rates, and those rates are a steep 40%. The new laws take much of the guesswork out of planning for estate taxes. However, there are still many moving parts to consider in the estate planning realm.

We were living in Branch County, Mich., at the time where I had pastored a small rural church for 11 years. My father, originally from the Antwerp area, had just passed away and there was a growing need to get geographically closer to my mother because of various physical concerns in her life. In the process, a cousin from our hometown, Berne, Ind., was filling in as pastor of a small church in Payne. He called and suggested that I consider moving to the church and supplement myself with newspaper writing, which I had become involved with in Michigan. At first, I was hesitant for several reasons. To solve my quandary over the decision, I recall taking my mother for a ride and talking it over with her. Almost immediately, in her guiding advice, things started to gel in her mind and I began to realize that I was

possibly in the midst of a major life decision. Within several weeks and various meetings with church consistory members, family discussion and other inquiries, things fell together in unbelievable order. I moved back to within nine miles of my father’s childhood, the church graciously accepted our ministry and writing opportunities quickly presented themselves. To top things off, when we went to the local post office to confirm our mailbox, it was number 74. My father had passed at age 74. In a major way, there had been a life-changing epiphany that we continue to appreciate to this day. Since that time, I have come to realize new meaning to various ways at looking at special epiphanies and so have many of you; sometimes it has been delivered by cardinals, or butterflies, or violets, or various other means. And in the midst of it all, the realization of the original church epiphany – “For to us a child is born, for to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” – still stands out to many who realize the meaning of the special word, “epiphany.” In good times business people want to advertise. In bad times they have to. Learn how your community newspaper can help you – call the Progress today at 419-399-4015.

Junior fair board, 4-H extremely active By BILL SHERRY Correspondent PAULDING – The Paulding County Agricultural Society met Jan. 9 with fair board members and guests present for the meeting. Several members of the Paulding County Junior Fair Board and their advisor, Tony Miller, were among those present. It was noted that the junior fair board and county 4-H clubs are extremely active following a very successful Christmas light display in December. The junior fair board announced that they would be doing some fund-raising to help replenish their general fund. Among the fund-raisers will be the sale of laundry detergent, a sandwich sale, and sale/advertising promotion of benches that would be placed around the fairgrounds. Members of the junior fair board, Miller and several other adults attended the Ohio Fair Manager’s Convention (OFMC) in Columbus on Jan. 5 . There were numerous positive comments from the junior fair board members who attended. One report concerned a session called, “A Step Beyond Junior Fair Board to Senior Fair Board” in which the attendees were given a budget for a

fair project and asked to completely plan and schedule a fair. The comment was made that the things learned from this session gave the junior fair board attendees a good feel for what it was like to be making actual decisions like the senior fair board makes each year. Numerous reports were given by youth and adults concerning the OFMC sessions they had attended in Columbus including some how-to’s on better record keeping on projects, youth and the use of various equipment, trade show, grant writing, livestock sessions, harness racing, fair electrical, amusement and promotion. The different reports seemed to bring some new ideas to the Paulding County Fair but as some fair board members pointed out, “We have been doing some of this for years and could give others in the session new information.” Board Treasurer Jodi Poulson presented the board with a treasurer’s report and again reminded the board that they needed to get someone to replace her as board treasurer. Poulson also noted that the type of annual audit is still being discussed. The possibilities are a standard audit, one-half audit or an audit by the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

Varsity Games Raiders get big GMC win over Tigers; also win at DJ of the Week


By KEVIN WANNEMACHER Sportswriter Wayne Trace extended its winning streak to eight last week as the Raiders picked up wins at Holgate and at Delphos Jefferson to move to 9-1 on the season. In Green Meadows Conference action, the red, white and blue stayed tied with co-leader Edgerton at 2-0 in league play with a 39-29 victory over the Tigers. Grady Gudakunst led the Raiders with 15 points in the contest, including a crucial offensive rebound and bucket off of his own free throw miss late in the fourth quarter to put the Raiders on top 36-29. The Raider senior guard scored a dozen of his points in the second half. “That was a big play by Grady,” noted Raider head coach Jim Linder. “He stepped up and hit some big shots tonight.” Wayne Trace held the Tigers scoreless over the last 3:13 of the contest while finishing the game on a ninepoint run. “I am just so proud of these kids, especially these seniors,” Linder

added. “They have worked so hard and have really put the time in. This is a big win for us but we have to come back ready to go on Thursday against Ayersville.” The Raiders opened the fourth quarter scoring with a pair of Gudakunst free throws and a Nick McClain basket to take the lead for good at 29-26. Dalton Sinn added a basket and two foul shots in widening the lead to 34-29. “It was a total team win,” Linder concluded. “They all contributed and made plays at key times for us.” McClain added eight points for the Raiders with Sinn chipping in seven. Colby Speice and Corbin Linder recorded five and four markers, respectively, for Wayne Trace. Speice also picked up six boards for the Raiders. The Raiders then cruised in nonleague play at Jefferson on Saturday as Wayne Trace outscored the host Wildcats 29-2 in the third quarter for a 69-37 win over Delphos Jefferson. Gudakunst led the red, white and blue with a dozen markers while Linder and Ryan Kortokrax added 11 markers each. McClain and Speice

also hit twin digits with 10 points a piece for the Raiders. Sinn (nine), Devin Wenzlick (four) and Jake Arend (two) also scored for Wayne Trace. Wenzlick paced the Raiders on the boards with six and Arend grabbed four for the Raiders. Speice picked up five steals with Arend, Linder and Sinn adding three each. Speice and Arend dished out three assists a piece as well for the Raiders. The Raiders nipped the Wildcats on the boards 26-25 but forced Delphos Jefferson into 28 turnovers while Wayne Trace committed only 14. Trey Smith led Delphos Jefferson with 17 points and Nick Fitch added eight. Zach Ricker (four), Austin Jettinghoff (two), Ross Thompson (two), Tyler Mox (two) and Dalton Hicks (two) also scored for Delphos Jefferson, which falls to 3-8. “We played hard tonight,” noted Raider head coach Jim Linder. “I thought we came out with a little more intensity to start the second half and it allowed us to make some plays defensively that led to offense. This isn’t an easy place to play but we were able to take another step forward

tonight. The key is to just keep getting better and I thought we did that tonight.” Wayne Trace’s junior varsity split the two games this week as the Raiders fell to Holgate 22-20, but rolled past the Wildcats 50-24. Brock Worden scored 15 points and Gabe Wobler added 11 in the Raider win over Delphos Jefferson. T.J. Blackmore (six), Justin Speice (five), Hank Sinn (four), Nick Glass (four), David Sinn (three) and Cole Shepherd (two) completed the Raider scoring. Speice also had seven boards for the red, white and blue with Jake Gerber recording five assists and four steals. David Sinn posted five steals as well for Wayne Trace, which moves to 8-2 on the season. At Holgate, the Raiders never seemed to get into sync offensively in falling to the Tigers. Blackmore paced the local squad with five points with Worden and Wobler adding four each. The Raiders return to action tomorrow as they host Ayersville in Green Meadows Conference action. Wayne Trace then welcomes in Lima Shawnee for a non-league battle on Saturday.

Panthers preparing for Archers drop showdown with Crestview 65-53 decision at Tinora

By JIM LANGHAM Sportswriter A lot will be weighing in when the local Panther squad hosts Crestview this Friday night in Northwest Conference boys basketball action. Both squads have 2-1 records in conference play and both programs sport one of the best teams in the local area. Crestview’s only loss, a league loss, is to powerful Lima Central Catholic, while the local squad dropped its first league contest, 56-52, in overtime this past Friday night at Columbus Grove. However, Paulding bounced back to recapture momentum on Saturday night at home with a solid 68-40 win over Fairview. In that contest, the Panthers jumped out to a 14-6 advantage early and extended it to 3014 at the half. Paulding continued to dominate, ousting the Apaches by 28 points. “It was good to bounce back after the loss on Friday,” said Paulding head coach Shawn Brewer. “We had good energy; we played good team basketball. Everybody on the team got in quite a bit of playing time. “It’s tough to come back after a loss in a key game like last night,” said Brewer following Saturday’s game. “Now we move on to our next focus of taking on Crestview.” On Friday night at Columbus Grove, Columbus Grove nudged into a 13-12 advantage at the first stop but Paulding tied the con-

test 23-23 at the halfway mark. Grove pulled away again by four points, 35-35, at the end of three quarters but the Panthers fought back to tie the game, 48-48 at the end of regulation play. In the deciding four minute overtime, the Bulldogs outscored the Panthers, 8-4, to come away with the key conference win. In that contest, Lance Foor led Paulding with an impressive performance of 20 points and 10 rebounds while Julius Salinas added 12 points for the local squad. In scoring on Saturday, Foor led Paulding with 18 points and Logan Doster and Kyle Kauser finished the game with 11 and 10 points respectively. In junior varsity ball, Columbus Grove won 42-38 on Friday while the Panthers bounced back for a 63-25 win on Saturday. “It’s a shame we ended up losing, we played 29 minutes so well; it was one of our better full games of the year,” said Brewer concerning the loss at Columbus Grove. “We were a little demoralized, but we will learn to grow from it and get better.” Concerning Friday’s encounter with Crestview, Brewer said, “Crestview is so sound fundamentally offensively and defensively. We need to make them work for their points. We are going to really need to play four solid quarters of basketball. We are very capable of doing that.”

By JOE SHOUSE Sportswriter The Antwerp Archers were on the road last Thursday in a Green Meadows Conference battle with the Tinora Rams. In a competitive contest, the Rams outlasted head coach Scott McMichael’s club 65-53. “It was a hard fought conference game. They (Tinora) shot the ball very well and unfortunately we turned the ball over too much,” commented McMichael. The Archers found themselves down by just three after eight minutes of play 19-16 and Coach McMichael was very please with his team’s effort. “Both teams shot well from the perimeter and I thought our first half of play was the best half we have put together so far this year,” McMichael said. With the Archers trailing 35-30 at the half, the Archer head coach was still optimistic and felt his team was working hard and playing some of their best basketball. The play of the third quarter, however, was the downfall the coach was hoping would not take place. “The third (quarter) was the difference. We had three turnovers that Tinora converted into easy lay ups and that really hurt us,” said the coach. Tinora managed to extend their advantage holding the Archers to just nine third-quarter points while putting up 14 to take a 10-point lead into the fourth period. Antwerp found a spark in the fourth quarter with junior Kaden Brumett on radar from 3-point land. Brumett collected four field goals from behind the three point arc and led the team in scoring with 15 points. “We made a little run at them in the fourth quarter but it seemed like Tinora always had an answer. Brumett did a good job and I thought Trenton Copsey played his best half of the season.” Another area where Coach McMichael was pleased was how his troops got back defensively and taking the Rams out of their transition game. “We played a good defensive game but our turnovers killed us plus the free throw difference certainly didn’t help.” The Archers were just 6-of-15 from the line while the Rams connected on 15-of-20. From the field the Archers (6-5, 1-1) shot a respectable 53 percent while the Rams scorched the nets with 68 percent shooting. Leading scorers for Tinora was Sam Layman with 14 points followed by Robert Wuo 13, and Alex Frank chipping in 10. The Archers were playing shorthanded with 6-foot-2 junior Colton Stout on the sideline nursing a neck injury he sustained in the Stryker game. “Hopefully the doctors will clear him to play this week and we can have him for the Holgate game on Thursday,” said McMichael. Holgate is struggling at 1-1 in conference play and 6-7 overall but McMichael said Holgate will have everybody back after injury has sideline some of the team members.

Tall Tinora tops Lady Archers, 53-31 By JOE SHOUSE Sportswriter The Antwerp Archers were hosts to the Tinora Rams last Friday and after holding an opening lead at 2-0 the Archers would never be in front again. A huge third quarter for the Rams allowed the visitors to build a lead by as many as 27 points and eventually won the game by a 22 point margin 53-31. “The third quarter was big for them (Tinora). Every game we seem to have one quarter where we don’t play very well and it really hurts us,” said head coach Kevin Taylor. The Rams led 9-5 after the first

Tinora with the hot hand; outscoring the Archers 15-6 and leading 47-20 heading into the final eight minutes of play. The third quarter saw Tinora’s Ashley Mack take advantage of her height and scored nine points including four filed goals in the paint. Mack, a 5foot-11 sophomore nonstarter was the top scorer for the Rams with 14 points. Also dominating the inside was teammate Rebecca Olashuk, another nonstarter who stands 5-foot-9, chipping in seven points. While Mack and Olashuk were doing the damage on the inside, it was senior Breanna Hughes keeping the

quarter of play and continued to build their advantage to double digits in the second quarter. The halftime scored had the Rams in control 22-12. “At the end of the quarter we were only down four and then we took four bad shots in a row and before you knew it Tinora had the big lead,” Taylor said. Freshman Annie Miesle scored the first basket of the third period to pull the Lady Archers to within eight at 22-14, but a 10-0 run by the Rams put the game out of reach for Antwerp. Following a Lady Archer time out at the 4:45 mark it still

Antwerp defense honest with 11 points including two buckets from behind the arc. Tinora had balance scoring with nine different Rams scoring. “Tinora was bigger, stronger, and quicker than we were, but we could have done a better job boxing out and getting a few more rebounds. Tonight, we had a few turnovers but our rebounding was almost non existent,” said Coach Taylor. For the Archers, Alexis Jones came away with 15 points to lead all scorers. The 5-foot-7 senior had four goals and 7-of-8 from the foul line. Kalya Jemison had seven points for the Archers. Only five players scored

with only two points coming from nonstarters. Chay Jackson has a 2point goal in the second period. With the win, Tinora evens its conference mark at 1-1 while improving its overall record at 7-5.

Panthers pick Paulding County boys basketball leaders up pair of wins on mats By KEVIN WANNEMACHER Sportswriter Paulding picked up a pair of victories in non-league wrestling action last week as the Panthers defeated both Fairview and Tinora. The maroon and white posted a 55-24 win over the Apaches as Paulding recorded eight victories via pins. Kage Seals (106), Taylor Deatrick (126), Zack Wesley (132), Aaron Mock (138), Adam Deatrick (170), Dakota Valdez (182), Ryan Schindler (195) and Sonny Manz (285) all picked up victories via pin for the Panthers. Tyler Ash (220) won via a major decision for the local squad and Branson Minck (113) was victorious by decision. Paulding also defeated the Rams as the Panthers picked up a 48-27 win. Seals (106), Taylor Deatrick (126), Wesley (132), Mock (138), Adam Deatrick (170), Valdez (182) and Schindler (195) each were victorious via a pin for the maroon and white. Ash (220) won by decision as well for the Panthers and Manz (285) was victorious via a forfeit. “We wrestled very well,” stated Panther head coach Josh Neilson. “We wanted to come out and not just win but we wanted to start to distance ourselves from Fairview and Tinora and I think we did that. We wanted to put a lot of points on the board, wrestle hard and fix mistakes we have been making and I think overall we did all three. “There are always things to learn and mistakes to correct, but we are going to celebrate the win first,” Neilson continued. “We beat two very good teams and I am happy with our performance.”

By JOE SHOUSE Sportswriter The 2012-13 basketball season is near its halfway point with most teams playing at least ten games. Teams are now positioning themselves in conference play and will soon be focusing on the upcoming tournament. The three schools representing Paulding County on the boys side are playing very competitive basketball with Paulding and Wayne Trace supporting fancy won-loss records. The Archers from Antwerp are hanging around at the .500 mark. Below are the individual statistical leaders along with the conference standings for the three Paulding County Schools.

12A - Paulding County Progress Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Back to defense, says Schultz By JIM LANGHAM Sportswriter Following Paulding’s 54-34 loss to Columbus Grove last week, Paulding head girls’ basketball coach Lyndsi Schultz called a special practice this past Saturday for anyone who would like to do some extra practice on defense. Schultz was pleased that team members want to work hard on that area of their game. “We knew that Columbus Grove was a very physical team. They play in a tough league there,” said Schultz. “We came out and started strong but then it went downhill from there. We couldn’t get the rebounding done; they have very strong players.” Paulding opened up a 15-10 lead at the end of the first quarter but Grove broke back to outscore the Panthers, 17-7, in the second stanza to claim a 27-22 lead at the halfway mark. In the second half, the Bulldogs continued their charge to grab the 20-point victory in Northwest Conference action. Abbey Pease led the Panthers with 10 points while Jerika Bland added eight points for the Panther cause. “In the second half, we hit five out of 10 shots, but we only took 10 shots,” said Schultz. “We knew coming into this year that we were going to struggle with being able to score conJim Bowers/Paulding County Progress Jim Bowers/Paulding County Progress sistently.
