By Marlena Ballinger Managing Editor OTTAWA — By a one to three margin, Ottawa’s income tax levy on Tuesday’s ballot was rejected by the residents of Ottawa. This would have marked the first raise in Ottawa’s income tax level since 1959. With 382 voters approving the tax levy 922 rejected the income tax increase. Residents voted down the income tax increase proposed to raise approximately $700,000 in additional, annual funding for the village of Ottawa. It is

now up to village council to see which services can be cut to balance the village’s budget. Some of the services that are provided and paid for from the income tax fund include police protection, leaf pickup, snow removal and street repairs. These are only a few of the services council could look at reducing since the tax did not pass. Even if the tax increase would have passed, the village would have had to make cuts. Officials are now scratching their heads as to which cuts to

start with. “Everything is on the table,” said Dean Meyer, Mayor of Ottawa. “I am dumbfounded by how much this was voted down.” Meyer also said he would like to see the income tax levy put back on the ballot during the next election. “We can not cut ourselves into prosperity,” said Meyer. One area Meyer noted was street lights. He said lighting of village streets costs taxpayers approximately $60,000 per year. An expense that is taken

from the income tax fund. In January of this year, Ottawa village council discussed the possibility of removing the tax credit currently given to residents who work in Ottawa. This was rejected due to an outpouring from the community and did not make it past two readings before being tabled. According to a story written in the Dec. 15 edition of the Sentinel, if the tax credit is taken away the village stands to gain an additional $288,000 annually from its residents.

Benton to continue as Leipsic’s mayor LEIPSIC — Leipsic voters approved incumbent mayor Kevin Benton for another four years with 309 votes to challenger James Russell’s 243. Benton looks forward to carrying out in this next term projects begun in his previous term. Benton “Now that our funding is getting a little bit better in our village funds, we’re to the point now where we can start to expend some of those funds. Next year, we’re going to be able to start paying for some of our street repairs. We’re going to be able to start doing some of things we weren’t able to do before. Because we didn’t have the blessings from the state as it wasn’t in our budget.” When asked about the village economic development plan and how the reservoir plays into that he responded: “It’s like anything else, it’d be wonderful if we could go and get another tenant or two or three that wants to come to Leipsic and needs that water supply. Obviously that would be the ideal situation. We’re getting to the point now that it’s becoming a stand-alone utility for us. The thing about the reservoir is, and it gets caught up in ➤ See BENTON/A14

Former Putnam County Police chief wins appeal

By Marlena Ballinger Managing Editor OTTAWA — The Ohio Court of Appeals, Third Appellate District overturned a ruling on former Kalida police chief, Forrest Gordon, who was convicted in 2010 of two counts of theft in office. The court overturned a decision Gordon made by a jury during a trial held in Putnam County Common Pleas court in January 2010. According to documents from the Court of Appeals of Ohio, a panel of three judges overruled the jury’s decision by a two to one vote. In 2010, Gordon was indicted and convicted of theft in office charges during his time as Kalida Police Chief and while employed by the Ottawa Police Department. Gordon served as Kalida’s police chief from 2002 until July 2007 and then assistant police chief for Ottawa beginning in 2007. He was promoted to chief of police for less than a month before his termination. Gordon was accused of theft after allegedly using the police department computer to partici➤ See APPEAL/A14

to the rules of the village charter that was enacted in 1999. “I would like to take on the budget challenge as the mayor for this village,” said Meyer. In regards to the income tax levy failing, “Everything is on the table,” Meyer continued. The final person to fill the council seat will continue to be Gene Hovest who received 716 votes during Tuesday’s election. “I am pleased to be re-elected and feel we have a lot of work ahead of us,” said Hovest after the election.

It’s my job:

Putnam County Sentinel

Rev. Metzger was called to religion at an early age By Sandy Langhals Sentinel Correspondent OTTAWA – Since the young age of seven or eight, Rev. Marshall Metzger knew that God was calling him to be a minister, “I didn’t agree to it until I was in high school. I was always shy and backwards and didn’t think it was going to work out, still am shy and backwards, but with God’s help, I’ve tried to follow and do what He wants,” laughs Metzger. It wasn’t until the end of the first semester in his senior year of high school that he realized that he either needed to follow God’s plan or walk away. “I decided to obey. I went to the guidance counselor at the high school and I said, ‘Do you think I could make it if I go to college?’ and she looked at my records and said if I worked at it, I probably could.” He was accepted at Bethel College in Indiana and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Literature. “I had some struggles there, but I got through,” says Metzger. He has been a pastor for 40 years now. Metzger states that he went straight from college to Lakeview, “I’ve done all of my ministry in Ohio.” He was the pastor in Lakeview for four years and shares that his brother is the pastor at the same church he was and has been there for a while now. Small churches are where Metzger feels that God has called him to and he has never aspired to be the pastor of a large church. From Lakeview, he went to Swanton for four years until he was unexpectedly called by God to serve in Haiti. Metzger explained he had been married for seven years and they didn’t have any children and didn’t

know if they would have any children, so they applied to the mission board to go to Haiti. “We came home and found out that we were going to have our first son. So, our two oldest boys were born in Haiti,” he laughs. “It was a stressful time.” They spent four years in Haiti. He was the business manager and they were in charge of running the guest house, which included being house parents to missionary children that lived with them who came for schooling. “We had a lot of people that were in and out of the country.” He explained that when people first came into the country to do missionary work they would stay overnight with them. The next day they would travel four to six hours to do their mission work for a week or two. They would then return for the night and fly back home. “There was one time we had 30 some guests in our house,” informs Metzger. “That was the most we ever had. In fact, that time we had to find other places to house them because we didn’t have enough beds.” “It was an interesting experience; it was nothing that I ever aspired to, wanting to do any foreign work, but I just sensed that was what God had for us and we saw God’s hand leading us there,” he expresses. Noticing a difference in the culture, Metzger talked about how hard it was to accept the fact that he was treated differently. He explained that you are considered “elite” if you are white and when you walk into a store, everyone steps back and allows you to be waited on first. “That was a little different and a little awkward for me because I didn’t think that was the way it should be, but that’s

Rev. Marshall Metzger knew since his childhood he would be performing religious services. He has been a pastor for 40 years and is currently at Ottawa Missionary Church, Ottawa.

the way it was. It was easier to go with it than argue,” he chuckled. After they returned from Haiti, they did one year of deputation where they went around to other missionary churches and shared their experience in Haiti with others. It was after they finished this year of service that he began as the pastor of the Missionary Church in Ottawa. He has served as their pastor since 1984. On top of being the pastor of Ottawa Missionary Church, Metzger is also the Spiritual Care Coordinator for the Putnam County Hospice. “I’m just there if there is someone without clergy,” explains Metzger. “I’ve had a couple of cases

where they didn’t like their clergy and they called and wanted me to come in and meet with them.” In this position, he will visit patients if he is needed and attends a weekly meeting to receive information about patients. Metzger had an interesting story that explains how he first became associated with Hospice. The first Spiritual Care Coordinator, when Hospice began, was a deacon from the St. John Baptist Church in Glandorf. Sadly, he was diagnosed with cancer and could not fulfill his duties. Metzger was called and asked to fill in until the deacon was well enough to come back. “Well, he died

and I’m still filling in,” said Metzger. That was in 1998. As if he isn’t busy enough, Metzger has also worked for the Putnam County Sentinel since April of 1995. He picks up advertisement pages that are inserted inside the paper and also delivers the Sentinel to places on the west side of the county. He mentioned that he has seen many changes during his employment; especially his schedule. Just when you think he couldn’t possibly have time for anything else, Metzger shares that he did maintenance at the Hilty Memorial Home for two years and also served as their chaplain.

When asked what his favorite part of being a pastor was, he shared, “I think I’m doing what God wants me to do.” He also really enjoys visiting individuals in the nursing homes. “I’ve met people that I would not have met otherwise.” His least favorite part is dealing with problems. “Problems have to be dealt with and I tend to put them off, then it gets worse sometimes,” he laughs. Metzger lives in Ottawa with his wife Betty. They have three boys: Samuel, who is an associate pastor at the Ottawa Missionary Church, Matthew (Dana) and Peter (Catlin). They are the proud grandparents of Cora and Grant.

Ribbon cutting ceremony held for Leipsic’s CFAP addition parking lot is still in progress. The ceremony on Sunday also included a thank you from the Ohio School Facilities Commission on behalf of Amy Lloyd, project administrator. Lloyd spoke about the efficiency of the new addition since the district chose to adhere to LEEDs certification. By pursuing the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, the building was built with geothermal heating and utilized solar thermal technology. The building also used low-emitting materials that allowed it to be LEED certified. One example was the paint used in

the classrooms and carpeting. Ottawa and Glandorf Elementaries were recently built utilizing LEEDs certification. A guest speaker, Karel Oxley, superintendent for Lima City School, was also on hand to dedicate the new building. Oxley, also the president of the Buckeye Association for School Administrators, congratulated Leipsic on its new school and commented on the tremendous amount of school spirit throughout the village of Leipsic. The ceremony also included a flag presentation from Steve Ruskey, Commander of the American Legion Post #287, to the

Grove man stabbed, Lima man arrested COLUMBUS GROVE On Thursday, Nov. 3 at 9:48 p.m. the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a woman reporting a stabbing had just occurred on South Main Street in Columbus Grove. The investigation revealed that a 39-year-old Columbus Grove man had been stabbed in the abdomen. The victim is reported to have suffered non-life threatening injuries. The Columbus Grove Police Department named Joshua A. Morman, 40, from Lima as a person

of interest. On Friday, Nov. 4 at approximately 9:15 a.m., Morman was arrested by the Allen County Sheriff’s Office on an unrelated warrant in Putnam County. Morman is currently being held at the Putnam County Jail on that warrant. Felonious assault charges have been filed and his arraignment was on Monday, Nov. 7. The stabbing victim has been identified as Shawn Ward. Ward was taken to St. Rita’s Medical Center in Lima and was treated and

released. Mormon was allegedly visiting with friends on Nov. 3 in Columbus Grove, when Ward showed up at the residence. Morman became upset and the two began fighting ending in Ward being stabbed and Mormon taking off on foot. Columbus Grove EMS, Putnam County Medic 300, Putnam County Service 301, Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, Kalida Police Department and the Pandora Police Department all assisted at the scene.

he felt he had to do. It was noted that the Blabber did sometimes have problems with the ‘King’s English’ but the overall messages were what people wanted and needed to hear. The minor typos were vastly ignored. The Blabber is much like the modern newspapers. It reported on babies being born, marriages, deaths and basketball scores. The publication told of which plays the school children performed, who graduated, families that made Victory Gardens and how to cope with the food shortages. But, it also reported on which “boys” had their physical exams, who left for military service, who came home on furlough and where they went. Okuly also told of where the community’s local mostly men and some women were sent after basic training camp: whether it was North Africa, Italy, France, England or the Pacific. Unfortunately it was also reported when their heroes came home in a pine box. It was stated which priest preformed the burial, what the American Legion did for the burial and what was done or being done to help the family cope. Kern stated that locals were always reminded that they were at war. Whether it was trains full of troops traveling through the towns or going to work at the Lima

‘The Blabber’ big hit for servicemen in the 1940s By Cortney Mumaugh Sentinel Correspondent MILLER CITY — During times of war, communication has always been a battle. Communication, not in the sense on tactics and strategy, but in friendly ‘hellos’ and knowing that loved ones were safe and being cared for home and away. Francis Kern, longtime Miller City resident and proud veteran, shared information on a shortspanned publication called “The Home Front News: The Blabber.” According to Kern, the Blabber was started by Bill Okuly. Okuly wrote, edited, produced and distributed the Blabber, which was described as ‘a folksy, one-page monthly newsletter.’ At the time Okuly was a local railroad stationmaster and Western Union operator. He was also a World War I veteran. “(The Blabber’s) messages became an instant hit with local citizens, servicemen and women of World War II,” stated Kern. The Blabber’s first issue was sent out on April 17, 1942 and the last in June, 1945 – totaling 35 issues in all. Okuly also enlisted the help of Preethe Konst, who owned “Preethe’s Place”. Okuly, Konst and many volunteers got the Blabber off and running. The publication was mailed to all local servicemen and women in all parts of the world, including those on the front lines, according to Kern. Okuly reportedly said the newsletters were something

Editorials from around Ohio By The Associated Press Excerpts of recent editorials of statewide and national interest from Ohio newspapers: The Columbus Dispatch, Nov. 6 Among the most disturbing aspects of the recent Chillicothe classroom beating of one student by another, captured on another student's cell phone video, is that no one appeared to try to help the victim as he was repeatedly punched and thrown to the floor. High school has been known to be a tough place, but is a sense of moral duty, not to mention compassion, in such short supply that no one felt compelled to seek help? ... What makes bullying so insidious is that much of it is conducted under the radar of adults. There are a thousand ways for bullies to deliver a taunt or a threat that leaves no evidence. ... Ohio school districts are required to have policies banning bullying. At Unioto High School where this assault occurred, more effort is needed to impress upon students that they have a duty to tell a responsible adult when they see bullying, whether it's a physical attack, verbal intimidation or any of the myriad ways a troubled youth can torment a classmate. Just as bullying should not be tolerated, neither should a school culture in which students think it acceptable to stand by while one classmate is hurt by another. The Lima News, Nov. 6 The fight over Issue 2 — we can't call it a debate — has been overloaded with emotional pleas. Those opposed to the measure have gone to great lengths to try to keep voters scared enough not to think clearly on the issue. Here's what voters really should be worried about: being forced to pay higher taxes. ... Everyone in Ohio has had to make cuts: families, businesses and workers in all sectors. But the unions representing public sector workers believe they've sacrificed enough, period, no matter what the rest of us have to give up. They want us to dig deeper into our pockets so that many government workers can keep their unaffordable benefits: low health-care costs, retirement accounts largely funded by taxpayers and, in some cases, six-figure payouts on sick and vacation days. Ohio's budget cannot keep supporting these. Cuts need made, or taxes need raised. Your vote on Issue 2 says which one of the two you'd prefer. ... Ohio state and local governments have costs they should better control, and labor is at the top of the list. ... The people with these taxpayer-funded benefits aren't the greedy villains some pro-Issue 2 advertising has made them out to be. They are public servants: police officers, firefighters, teachers. But Ohio faces an ongoing budget battle, one solved only by higher taxes or deeper cuts. The (Youngstown) Vindicator, Nov. 6 It is impossible to argue that public employees in the state of Ohio can continue to expect to live in the style to which they have become accustomed, given that most taxpayers who are supporting that lifestyle have already made larger concessions to the economic realities of the day. But it is equally impossible to argue that the only — or even the best — response to that disparity is contained in Senate Bill 5. ... It would have been perfectly possible and far preferable for (Gov. John) Kasich to use a scalpel rather than a machete in carving up government. ... But a more focused bill would not have been in keeping with Kasich's interpretation of his mandate, and it would not have fit the governor's plan to balance the state budget. A large part of that plan was to reduce state disbursements to local schools and other entities, with the assurance that local governments would be able to balance their own budgets through the money they'd save by cutting their personnel costs. It was a master stroke that allowed Kasich ... to shift the heavy lifting to city and village councils and township and school boards. ... The proper response to the governor's overreaching is for the voters of Ohio to send him and the state's legislators back to the drawing board. And they can do that by voting no on state Issue 2. ... By so doing, they will send an emphatic message to the governor and to the Republican and Democratic delegations in the General Assembly that it is time for them to do the hard work that is necessary to eliminate abuses of the taxpayers and still treat with dignity the employees who police our streets, put out our fires and teach our children. The Times Reporter, Nov. 6 The news of America's growing obesity rate — caused by a combination of physical inactivity and poor nutrition — may not be particularly shocking to many citizens when they look at themselves and others, but its implications ought to be. Today's generation of children could be the first in modern history to experience a decline in life expectancy compared to that of their parents. If that's not a wake-up call for change, we don't know what is. ... Mark Fenton, keynote speaker at Healthy Tusc's health summit Thursday and leadership breakfast Friday, offered the comparison of childhood a generation ago when “free-range kids” spent most of their free time playing outdoors without any adult supervision. ... Fenton indicated that many parents today are “marinated in fear,” believing it's not safe for their children to spend time unsupervised in their neighborhood. ... During the summit, several school leaders shared stories of decisions they have made to reduce the amount of unhealthy food and beverages available on the school grounds — much to the dismay of some of their students and parents. Tough decisions indeed are still ahead, but the buy-in and resolve demonstrated by many school, community and business leaders last week give us hope that solutions could be within our grasp. “We're truly in the fight of our lives,” said Kimberly Nathan, director of employee health, wellness and occupational medicine at Union Hospital .... Winning that fight will take hard work and a willingness to make significant and often-uncomfortable change — quickly. Lives hang in the balance.

This weekend while driving, I witnessed a woman carrying a bag of fast food towards a large combine. I could not help but think that this was a farmer’s wife bringing her husband supper. This made me think of all the wives who are “widowed” by their husbands this time of year. I, however, am not a farmer’s wife but I was raised by one. I also have a brother who is a farmer and his wife refers to herself as a “farmer’s widow” during this time of year. My father, and currently my brother, spent hours in the fields during planting and harvest seasons. Actually, this is what prompted the very first microwave in our house. I remember mom telling dad, “If you think I am going

field or other location so the farmer can keep on farming. This weekend, I spoke to a nearby farmer who was the recipient of a local radio station’s contest called feed the farmer. The station took the burden of cooking off the family for one night by feeding the farmer with food from a Lima restaurant. This was not only a great promotion but a relief for the cook in that family. I’m sure this area has plenty of farmer’s wives who are relating to this column’s writing. Each year during planting and harvest, I see many vehicles parked along the road and wives jumping from the trucks to feed their loved ones. God bless the farmers and their wives as they finish this late harvest.

By Helen Kaverman Sentinel Columnist 5 November 1986 The biggest surprise of the 1986 Putnam County election was the upset victory of Rep. David W. Young of Vaughnsville, over the incumbent Dem. Martin Kuhlman. Christ United Methodist Church, Continental was organized in 1888 as a United Brethren Church. During the 19th Century the Brethren were known as “Dunkards”. The first meeting was held on Oak Street, where the elevator was standing in 1986. There were 24 members in the first group. In 1948 when the Evangelical Churches and the United Brethren merged, Continental’s Church became the Continental Evangelical United Brethren Church. When the EUBs merged with the Methodist Church, the Continental Church became Christ United Methodist Church. For more church history, consult the microfilm for Nov. 5.

Father vs. son in OHSAA foundation basketball game in Kalida, Nov. 25 KALIDA — On Friday, Nov. 25 (the Friday after Thanksgiving) Kalida High School will be hosting an Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) foundation basketball game between the Columbus Bishop Hartley Hawks and the Kalida High School Wildcats. This game will bring back former Kalida High School and University of Findlay basketball star Randy Kortokrax to coach against his father, Richard Kortokrax, the winningest coach in Ohio High School basketball history. The Hawks of Bishop Hartley were state semi-finalists last year in Division II and return almost the entire team that compiled a 25-2 record. The Kalida Wildcats are coming off of a 17-5 record last year, and are looking forward to a great 2011-12 season. An OSHAA foundation game is played like any other basketball game,

however, it is not considered part of the regular basketball season record. The idea of a foundation game is to raise money for a local cause. All proceeds from this game will be donated to the new Kalida Park (www.kalidaparks. com). The junior varsity game will start at 6 p.m., with the varsity contest to follow. Since this is an OHSAA foundation game, season tickets and/or passes are not valid at this game. Admission to the game is $6 for adults and $4 for students. As mentioned, 100 percent of the proceeds of this game will be donated to the new Kalida Park. Please come out on Nov. 25 as the Columbus Bishop Hartley Hawks, coached by Randy Kortokrax, take on the Kalida Wildcats under the direction of Richard Kortokrax. What a great way to kick off the 2011-12 basketball season!

Author to visit library OTTAWA — Author Mary Ellis will be at the Putnam County District Library Ottawa location on Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. Ellis grew up close to the eastern Ohio Amish community, Geauga County, where her parents often took her to farmer’s markets and woodworking fairs. She loved their peaceful, agrarian lifestyle, their respect for the land, and their strong sense of Christian community. She met her husband in college and they married six days after graduation. She, her husband, dog and cat now live close to the largest population of Amish in the country—a four-county area in central Ohio. They often take weekend trips to purchase produce, research for her best-selling books, and enjoy a simpler way of

Dedication of Habitat for Humanity home set for Nov. 15 OTTAWA — The public is invited to the dedication of the third Habitat for Humanity home in Putnam County on Tuesday, Nov. 15. There will be an open house with light refreshments at 6 p.m. and a dedication ceremony at 7 p.m. The home was built in partnership with the Brandy Theis family and is located at 639 South Oak Street in Ottawa. The Theis home was made possible in part by a partnership with Putnam County Habitat for Humanity and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. The home was built to Energy Star 3.0 specifications and

Enterprise Green Communities standards, making the home both energy efficient and a healthy place to live. “This is probably the healthiest home build in Putnam County,” said construction manager, Paul Recker. Enterprise Green Communities requires that homes be built with formaldehyde-free and low VOC materials. Habitat is not a giveaway program. In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest 350 hours of their own labor (sweat equity) into building their Habitat home and the houses of others. Habitat houses are

sold to partner families as no profit and financed with affordable loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses. Habitat’s ministry is based on the conviction that to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, people must love and care for one another. Their love must not be words only—it must be true love, which shows itself in action. Habitat provides an opportunity for people to put their faith and love into action. They bring diverse groups of people together to make affordable housing and better communities a reality for everyone.

Buyer Be Wise By Neil Winget, President Better Business Bureau serving West Central Ohio The promotions look very attractive and give you the impression that they are a “once in a lifetime” offer. We have all seen them on TV. Flashy, fast paced and insistent. They always remind me of the guys you used to see at the county fair, selling some kind of kitchen appliance that “slices, dices, chops and cleans itself.” Before you bite on one of these flashy TV offers, consider a few things: How much does it actually cost? One promotion that has been making the TV rounds lately suggests if you “buy one, you get one free.” The problem is,

after you pay the “shipping and handling” costs that are tacked on, you could have purchased three just like it at a local merchant’s store. How long does it take to get it? Shipping times can vary from six to eight weeks, sometimes longer, if you ever get it. Most of these companies wait until the TV promotions have run their course before shipping and in the meantime, they have your money. “You can only buy this on TV.” That ranks as one of the top three lies in the world. There are stores all over the place that either have displays of “things seen on TV” or go so far as to specialize in selling this kind of merchandise.

(It’s almost a guarantee that once you see the actual item, you will not be so excited about buying it!) Who are you buying it from? This is often hidden in the advertisement or in print at the bottom of the screen so small you can’t read it. The orders most generally have to be made via an 800 or toll free number. If you do not know the location or name of the company, it is difficult to get any problems resolved. Hidden costs, long shipping times, uncertainty of the name of the company, and especially, the big unknown factor, the product’s quality, all make for a good reason to not bite on this kind of “once in a lifetime” deal.

Putnam County Sentinel

Recycling collection event nets 200 pounds of medication By Cortney Mumaugh Sentinel Correspondent OTTAWA – The Putnam County Medication/Recycling Collection Event which was held on Saturday, Oct. 29 at the Putnam County Educational Service Center was a huge success. This event was sponsored and supported by the Putnam County Health Department, Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, Project S.A.F.E. - Safe Schools/ Healthy Students and the Putnam County Educational Service Center, ADAMHS Board, Pathways Counseling Center, Putnam County Coroner, Goodwill, Crime Victim Services, Putnam County Solid Waste

District, Putnam County Commissioners, village of Ottawa, Wal-Mart, Trinity United Methodist Church, OSU Extension/4-H and the Community Thrift Store. This three-hour event was a large undertaking that the community embraced. Putnam County Sheriff James Beutler said the event started as a medication recycling event. “This started back a year ago, on Sept. 25,” said Beutler. “It’s an idea I had and something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I know some other sheriff’s who have done it and it was very successful.” Beutler said once he announced his idea of a medicine take-back day, other

local agencies jumped on board to help out. With the other agencies came other ideas for recycling of larger items that are hard to dispose of like computers, cell phones, oil, electronics and batteries. He soon found out that he had to file an application with the Drug Enforcement Administration, DEA, and be approved before an event could be held. To his surprise, the DEA, once approved, would take care of transporting and disposing of the drugs, saving him a hefty bill should it have been contracted out. The events sponsored by the DEA have to be held on specific days which the DEA approved.

The first event, held last fall, was a good event, said Beutler. Many community partners were established. About 140 pounds of pills were collected last year, which was one of the largest in northwest Ohio for the DEA. The Kiwanis approached Beutler for another takeback in the spring during their annual health event. The DEA again approved the application. The medication take-back booth was in the building but Beutler believed that the public did not see them and know where the booth was. In return, they collected about 40 pounds. While a disappointment, it is still 40

pounds less on the streets. Beutler believes that the drive-thru benefit of this recycling event drew more people. There were stations set up throughout the parking lot of the ESC and people drove to the various drop-off points, recycling without having to leave their vehicles. Many volunteers were on hand to move the larger items like the scrap steel, computers and toys. This event was also highly advertised. Fliers were dropped off at local pharmacies to go in prescription bags. This time around, 200 pounds of pills were collected. “It’s phenomenal,” said Beutler. “It’s a huge number when you think of how much a pill weighs.” There were six people working at the drug take-back station during the three-hour event and the constant stream of people kept everyone busy. “It’s exactly what we are trying to do, get the unused, unwanted, expired prescription drugs out of the medicine cabinets and out of our homes,” stated Beutler. “We know that most of the abuse and (drugs) that are being taken/stolen and are sold out on the streets come from homes. There is more prescription drug abuse in the United States than there is all the other illegal drugs put together; whether it’s heroine, cocaine, crack. It’s available; it’s easy to get. It’s worth a lot of money. That’s been our focus. We’ve seen so many people just in the state of Ohio alone that have died because of prescription drug Staff photo/Cortney Mumaugh Residents from all over Putnam County came to dispose of a total of 200 pounds of unwanted medication overdoses.” Oxycodone, Oxycontin, on Saturday, Oct. 29 at the ESC. Vicodin and Percocet are

other drugs that Beutler warns about. “Every (pill) that we can take back and dispose of is one less that has a chance of getting on the street and being sold and abused,” stated Beutler. While this kind of abuse is not new, it is even harder to stop. It is common for people to “shop” for doctors, hospitals and pharmacies to get the drugs they want. Beutler said over the past few years they have been able to establish an Internet-based reporting system for doctors and pharmacies so that chronic abusers are tracked. He said the number of cases has gone down because of this system. In addition to the abuse risk, people who just want to get rid of the old medicines were just flushing them down the toilet, which the EPA discourages. Incineration is now the preferred method of disposing of medications. When takeback days, such as the three listed above take place with the DEAs approval, the DEA will destroy the drugs at no cost to the community. If you have medicines that need to be disposed of, Beutler offers some tips until the next community take-back day. “I would like to do two (take-backs) a year, as the DEA continues to do this. It’s a crime prevention. As long as the community supports it, we will continue. If you have (medicines) keep them secured and locked up. Look for advertisements in the spring and the fall for people who want to get rid of them. Then bring them to us, no questions asked and we will dispose of them properly.”

Leipsic Council discusses sewer fund to be in the black in 2017 LEIPSIC — Village council passed additional legislation as part of its continuing financial recovery plan with the aid of the state auditor’s office. Ord. 2688 and 2689 were passed unanimously Monday night that approved the recovery plan and its appropriations respectively. This follows on the heels of a Nov. 3 work session with Linda Miller and Esther Kelly from the State Auditor’s office who forecast that the village sewer fund

won’t be in the black until 2017 with an 11 percent annual increase in that fund. One of the steps cited that will help the overall financial picture is if village utilities are self-supporting. The council also convened the property review board to address two properties. Kurt Bell informed council that work on the brick west facade of Maag’s Hotel is underway and should be completed within the week. Council set a Dec.

1 deadline on those repairs. The owner of the West Main Street property has been contacted but has not responded. Council has agreed to allow 30 days for the owner to contact the village or the decision to repair or demolish will devolve to council. Luke Haselman, Kyle Stechschulte and Jason Whaley were approved as volunteer firefighters by Mayor Kevin Benton pending a physical. Fifty dollars in Leipsic bucks for village employees for the holidays was unanimously approved.

General Niswonger Performing Arts noted ODOT mechanics as a premier theatre in the midwest ready winter road

Putnam County Sentinel

Wednesday, November 9, 2011 

VAN WERT - The Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Van Wert has been entertaining crowds since it held its first concert on March 17, 2007. The 1,200-seat building took six years and $10 million to build and has quickly become one of the premier theaters in the Midwest, drawing season ticket holders from up to 100 miles away from its stage. In the past, the NPAC has played host to sell-out audiences for Broadway shows like “Annie” and the national tour of “Porgy & Bess” and “Fiddler on the Roof.” The fourth full season of entertainment at the NPAC has already begun but there is still plenty of entertainment left on the schedule for this season which does not end until May of 2012. Full-stage musical theater and guest speakers join popular musical and dance shows on the calendar, and five show dates between Thanksgiving and Christmas will make for a music-packed holiday season. On Nov. 6, a different type of performance will hit the NPAC stage. COACH - the untold story of college basketball legendary coach and sportscaster Al McGuire will appeal to basketball fans and non-fans alike. The show, written by sportscaster and friend Dick Enberg, will lead you into the inner secrets and private thoughts of this legendary coach. Also returning as a special event will be the Air Force Band of Flight on Sunday, Nov. 13. Led by Commander/Conductor Major R. Michael Mench, this show will be free admission but only with a ticket obtained from Times

Bulletin Media or NPAC Box Office. After Thanksgiving, the performances will come fast and furious as five holiday shows fill the schedule. Leading off on Nov. 27 is David Phelps, tenor singer with the legendary Gaither Vocal Band and a fine contemporary Christian artist in his own right will perform both holiday classics and brand new Christmas songs. Tschaikovsky’s timeless holiday classic, The Nutcracker, will be presented on Dec. 3 by the Ballet Theatre of Toledo. This presentation will feature a live pit orchestra and a variety of local dancers for two incredible shows. Three days later, Kenny G returns to the NPAC stage. The popular saxophonist who sold out two shows in Van Wert in 2010 is coming back to again tantalize the audience with Christmas music and his own variety of smooth jazz on Dec. 6 and 7. The music switches gears on Dec. 11 as another fan favorite in this area makes another trip to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center. As promised, Ricky Skaggs is returning along with his family, The Whites, and their children to make a local stop on the Skaggs Family Christmas Tour. Then to round out the holidays, musician, author, radio host, and previous Entertainment Tonight co-host John Tesh will make his first appearance in Van Wert, bringing his successful Big Band Christmas show to town for a Dec. 17 performance. When 2012 rolls in, the phenomenal shows at the NPAC will continue. On Jan. 6, 2010 Country

Music Association Vocal Duo of the Year nominee Steel Magnolia will bring a high-energy show to the stage. The duo of Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones were also the winners of the second season of the TV show, “Can You Duet?” Then on Jan. 24, Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush will offer a positive message on how lives can be changed when provided with compassion, community support and educational opportunities. This special lecture series event is sure to be inspiring and encouraging. This year’s Valentines Day show features legendary country/pop music group, Restless Heart. The band who made 25 years worth of hits like “Bluest Eyes in Texas,” “Why Does It Have To Be (Wrong or Right)” and “I’ll Still Be Loving You” will hit the NPAC stage for an early romantic date on Feb. 11. Then how about a blend of Irish fiddle, dance and song with a Celtic twist? On Feb. 25, The Women of Ireland travel to Van Wert for a show that is not a typical concert. “Tradition,” “If I Were a Rich Man,” The Tony Award-winning classic Broadway musical Fiddler of the Roof is coming to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center for two performances on March 3. The ways of old and the ways of the new collide, trapping milkman Tevye in a battle to keep his family observing tradition and remaining true to one another. The word about NPAC

audiences and the facility keeps bringing some artists back to town. That’s the case for crowd favorite Brian Culbertson who returns to Van Wert on March 17 for a smooth jazz show with his friend, Grammynominated contemporary jazz pianist, David Benoit. Childhood favorite Clifford the Big Red Dog will squeeze his way into the NPAC along with his friends Cleo, Emily Elizabeth and T-Bone on March 18. The pooch has a lesson to learn on his latest adventure - it only take a little to be big. It promises to be a great night for kids of all ages. The curtain falls on the fourth NPAC season on May 14, but not until one of the hottest Broadway musicals makes it’s Van Wert debut. In The Heights will bring a Latino energy in song and dance, showing in the end that it’s all about home, family and finding where you belong. All these performances are in addition to the already-released schedule for the Community Concert Series at the NPAC, featuring ROCKAPELLA, Capitol Steps (March 24), Livingston Taylor and the Voices of Unity Choir (Apr. 28), and Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show (May 11).

equipment COLUMBUS – Armed with power tools and wrenches, more than 20 local ODOT mechanics are “suiting up” to inspect, test and fine tune each piece of snow removal equipment to ensure it is ready for battle this winter season. “Snow and ice removal is one of our core services and is vital to keeping Ohioans safe and our economy running each winter,” said ODOT Director Jerry Wray. “Our county garages do a great job to make sure our equipment is fully operational and ready to plow the roads.” Beginning this week, ODOT District 1 will perform its annual inspection of snow plows, trucks and equipment used in snow and ice fighting. The inspections will take place in each of the eight counties within the district which are Allen, Defiance, Hancock, Hardin, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert and Wyandot. District mechanics will perform a 142-point inspection on approximately 120 snowplows, including brakes, lights, fluids and other important safety and mechanical items. “We’ve officially made the transition into winter mode when our equipment inspections are completed,” said Kirk Slusher, ODOT District 1 Deputy Director. “Winter brings out the best in our workforce because we enjoy serving the public by keeping local highways as clear of snow and ice as possible,” he

said. “Our mechanics implement a very strict inspection of each piece of equipment,” said Division of Operations Deputy Director, Sonja Simpson. “Winter readiness events are vital to our overall winter maintenance strategy to certify each snowplow, truck and spreader is winter ready.” Besides equipment, another critical element in ODOT’s snow-fighting arsenal is salt. Earlier this year ODOT was able to save nearly $2 million on its annual salt purchase – or roughly $2 per ton. The savings were realized thanks to a change in Ohio law which now gives ODOT flexibility to purchase salt from a variety of vendors, making the salt bids more competitive. This season, ODOT will have more than 3,000 trained drivers ready to clear snow and ice from nearly 40,000 lane miles of state roadways and bridges. State highways carry approximately two-thirds of the state’s daily traffic. The first snow storm usually seems to be the worst because many motorists don’t remember the winter driving skills they developed last year. Being a careful and informed driver is the best way motorists can travel safely, ODOT’s best advice: in Ice and Snow… Take it Slow.

“How I BEAT My Acid-Reflux Nightmare!” “Now, I can eat even the spiciest foods without worry!” Here’s My Story:

Let me explain… For the better part of my life; I purposely avoided of a lot of foods. Especially ones with even a tiny bit of seasoning. Because if I didn't, I’d experience a burning sensation through my esophagus— like somebody poured hot lead or battery acid down my throat. Add to that, those disgusting "minithrow ups" and I was in "indigestion hell".

"I was beside myself. What was I gonna do? Keep taking the pills, or suffer with problems that could ultimately be my demise”. Doctors put me on all sorts of antacid remedies. But nothing worked. Or if they did, it would only be for a brief period. And then boom! My nightmare would return. Sometimes, I felt like I was dying. The pain was unbearable and nothing could make it stop. But then my wife, who occasionally suffered with the same problem; gave me one of her prescription acid blockers. It was a miracle. I felt like I could live again. Because before that, I was just miserable. I wanted to kill myself. But thankfully, it worked, and worked well. I felt great, until about one year ago; when I read an FDA warning that scared the heck out of me. It went something like this… FDA WARNING! Using proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) on a long term basis, increases your risk of hip, bone and spinal fractures. That's a particular concern to me, since many acid blockers are PPI's. I've gone through two back surgeries and bilateral hip replacements. I had to ask myself, could PPI's have been responsible for my medical woes? After all…

“The Recommended treatment for Prilosec OTC®, Prevacid®24HR and all other PPI's is only 14-days— I TOOK THEM FOR 14-YEARS!” I was “between a rock and a hard place”. Stop using the PPIs and I'm a “dead man in the water”. It would be unbearable. I wouldn't be able to eat anything. I’d have to go on a water diet. But that FDA warning was scary. I knew I had to stop or else risk developing spinal stenosis. My mother had that. And I watched her die a horrible death. Her spine just fractured. It was the worst death. She didn't deserve that. And neither do I.

DUPONT — In an unbelievably tight race, challenger Theodore States ousted 36 year incumbent mayor Robert Heidenescher by one vote, 50 to 49 according to unofficial numbers. When asked about his initial reaction to the outcome, Heidenescher re-

plied: “I’m stunned. I can’t believe the people of Dupont wouldn’t vote for experience versus no experience.” The new mayor is adopting a wait-and-see attitude: “It’ll be what the people will want. We’re going to wait and see how the people come up with

ideas and go from there,” said States. However, because it is so close, there could be a recount. “I’m not sure what the rules and regulations say, but that’s within one percent so I would think there would be an automatic recount,” stated Heidenescher.

By Marlena Ballinger Managing Editor OTTAWA — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown pressed for a faster timeline on the Blanchard River Flood Mitigation Study during a meeting, held on Nov. 3, with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Buffalo District. Brown met with Deputy District Commander Martin Lewton, Deputy for Programs, Planning and Project Management Thomas Switala, Chief of Programs and Project Management

Ron Kozlowkski and Chief of Planning Major Martin Wargo. “Phase I of the Blanchard Study was delivered to the Army Corps’ Buffalo District in July. Given the Findlay community’s investment in this project— including hundreds of thousands of dollars committed toward seeing it to completion—I am urging the Corps to finish its review of the study quickly and begin work on the flood control project,” Brown said. “This important initia-

tive will help protect homes and businesses throughout Hancock and Putnam counties, which is why further steps must be completed in a timely and thorough manner.” In May, Brown announced $1.4 million in funds for the Blanchard River flood mitigation study. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Brown has worked to protect the funding for this and other critical watershed management and harbor dredging projects throughout Ohio.

“Every time I ate something that didn't agree with me… I’d get what I called ‘ROT GUT’ — like my stomach was rotting out!”

I had to quit. So I stopped taking PPI's for a day or so. But my indigestion was worse than ever. I would rather take the chance of a spinal fracture than to live like that again. I tried everything. Even started using home remedies like Apple cider vinegar. But it just felt like I was pouring even more acid down my throat. Then one day at dinner, a friend of mine said "why don't you try an aloe drink?" I said "aloe drink"? Jeez. That doesn't sound good at all!” The next day he brought me a case of something called AloeCure®. I was skeptical, but I was desperate! So instead of being an ingrate I decided to try it. I was shocked! AloeCure®. Tasted pretty good too. It has a pleasant grape flavor that I actually enjoy drinking. I decided to experiment. I stopped taking the PPI's altogether and replaced it with a daily diet of AloeCure®. Then something remarkable happened… NOTHING! Not even the slightest hint of indigestion. And here’s the best part. The next day we had Italian food — my worst enemy. But for the first time in 40-years I didn't get indigestion without relying on prescription or OTC pills and tablets. Finally, I just didn’t need them anymore! I was so thrilled; I wrote the AloeCure® company to tell them how amazing their product is. They thanked me, and asked me to tell my story... the story that changed my life. I said “Sure, but only if you send me a hefty supply of AloeCure®. I just can't live without it. But don't believe me. You have to try this stuff for yourself. I recommend AloeCure® to anyone who suffers with the same problem I did. It gives you immediate relief. You'll be grateful you did. I sure am. It's the best thing that's happened to me in a long, long time. TRY IT 100% RISK-FREE! The makers of AloeCure® have agreed to send you up to 6 FREE bottles PLUS 2 free bonus gifts with every order— they’re yours to keep no matter what.

Senator Brown discusses Blanchard River flood mitigation

By Ralph Burns; “Former” acid reflux sufferer

I've Suffered With Acid Reflux for Almost 40-Years Now. Unless you experience it; you can’t imagine how horrible it is. Every time I ate spicy food I would get what I called "ROT GUT". Like something was rotting in my stomach. But now I can eat anything… No matter how spicy. Even if I never could before.

General Collective bargaining law defeated in Ohio

Wednesday, November 9, 2011  A11

Putnam County Sentinel

By Julie Carr Smyth Associated Press COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio voters on Tuesday rejected a new law restricting the collective bargaining abilities of public employee unions in an unusually vigorous off-year election that drew attention across the nation. Voters also approved an amendment to the state constitution intended to keep government from requiring Ohioans to participate in any health care system. In local elections Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman and Akron's longest-serving mayor, Don Plusquellic, both Democrats, won their re-election bids. At a hotel ballroom in downtown Columbus, large screens showing the laborbacked opponent coalition's advertisements and clips of their rallies flanked the stage. With 56 percent of votes counted, the issue was being defeated by about 62 percent. Republican Gov. John Kasich said “the people have spoken” and that he would listen. Cincinnati firefighter Doug Stern said he hopes lawmakers would be willing to work with firefighters and other public workers should they try again to change collective bargaining. “We want the ability to sit down at the table,” said Stern, who has put in 15 years with the fire department. “We live in the communities we serve. We don't want them to do poorly.” In an interview after the polls closed, a spokesman for the law's defenders, Jason Mauk, said, “The reality is this discussion isn't over on Election Day.” An email from Democratic President Barack Obama's re-election campaign had reminded supporters that Tuesday's results affect national politics and urged them to oppose the law that

would have limited the bargaining abilities of 350,000 unionized public workers. On the health care issue, voters chose to let the state opt out of a provision of the 2009 federal health care overhaul, which mandates that most Americans purchase health care. The measure will have limited legal impact, as federal laws generally trump state laws, but backers hope it can send a message to Washington on opposition to the mandates. Opponents of the amendment said its broad wording could have unintended consequences on state health care laws. In another ballot effort, they rejected a move to allow judges to remain on the bench through age 75, keeping the age limit at 70 and potentially affecting 10 percent of sitting judges over the next six years. The fight over the collective bargaining law, Senate Bill 5, was expected to attract potentially record crowds of voters for an offyear election. In the county that includes Columbus, people lined up outside polling places before they opened, and voting remained steady to heavy, said Ben Piscitelli, spokesman for the Franklin County Board of Elections. “One precinct told me today that this looks more like a presidential election primary, in that it's heavier than the usual off-year election,” he said. The union law was the hot topic for 18-year-old Rachel Schultz and other students who waited five to 10 minutes to vote at Ohio State University's student union. Schultz, whose father is a police officer in Hamilton, said she voted to strike down the law. “He deserves the right to negotiate on his stuff,” she said. Others favored the limits on public employees.

“I think they should have to pay their fair share like the rest of us,” said Jane Boden, a non-union nurse and selfdescribed independent from Anderson Township in suburban Cincinnati. She said she felt safety forces used misleading advertising on the issue. “They pretend that if the issue passes, they won't be able to protect public safety,” said Boden, 64. “Those are fear tactics, and they are treating the public as though we are stupid.” The effort to turn back the bargaining law pitted unions representing police, firefighters, teachers, prison guards and other government employees against Republicans at the Statehouse seeking to limit labor's reach and reduce government costs. The measure, which appeared as Issue 2 on the ballot, would have allowed bargaining on wages, conditions and some equipment. It would have outlawed public worker strikes, scraps binding arbitration and prevents promotions based solely on seniority. We Are Ohio, the unionbacked coalition opposing the law, had significant leads in both fundraising and polls heading into Election Day, building off anger over the bill that prompted days of Statehouse protests earlier this year. The Ohio Secretary of State's office said no major voting problems were reported in the first half of the day, though several voter terminals at a suburban Columbus elementary school were briefly evacuated while firefighters checked a gas odor. Associated Press writers Ann Sanner, Andy Brownfield, Kantele Franko, JoAnne Viviano and Doug Whiteman in Columbus and Lisa Cornwell in Cincinnati contributed to this report.

Judges’ age limit stays at 70 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Voters in Ohio have decided against raising the age limit for judges from 70 to 75. They upheld a 1973 law that capped judicial age at 70, under the philosophy that age can affect judgment and therefore older judges

should be forced to retire. Defeat potentially affects 10 percent of sitting judges over the next six years. The issue went down despite the endorsement of Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor, who appeared in ads supporting a yes vote. She argued people are now living

and working longer, and older judges offer valuable experience. Opponents included an association of county prosecutors. The ballot measure would have amended Ohio's constitution to allow judges to serve longer.

Ohio voters choose to opt out of health mandate COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Voters in Ohio have approved a ballot measure intended to keep government from requiring Ohioans to participate in any health care system. The constitutional amendment passed is largely symbolic, coming in response to the 2009 federal health care overhaul, a provision of

which mandates that most Americans purchase health care. Supporters hope it will prompt a challenge of the overhaul before the U.S. Supreme Court. The tea party and Republican groups backing the amendment say the Affordable Care Act was an overreach by the Obama adminis-

tration and Congress. They hope approval of the ballot issue will bar Ohio from instituting a state-mandated health insurance program like that of Massachusetts. Opponents argued state law can't trump federal law and that the amendment's wording could unintentionally jeopardize state health programs.

Blabber ➤➤From A3 factories located in Lima, Findlay, Defiance and even Toledo. By June 1945, the war came to an end and our “boys” came home. There was no longer a need for the Blabber and the publication ceased production. The following are excerpts from the Blabber, giving people a peek at what life was like almost 70 years ago. April 1942: “We stand today, faced with the duty of serving our country in any way that our government suggests or requires. Today our boys are flung over this entire earth, some in Army, Navy and Air. We who are staying at home must do our part. One of the things we can do is purchase Defense Bonds and Stamps. The safety of our country and all that we hold dear is at stake.” January 1943: “This is not only a war of soldier in uniform, it is also a war of all the people and it must not only be fought on the battle field, but in the cities and villages, in the factories and on the farms, in the homes and in the hearts of every man, woman, and child who loves freedom. Buying war bonds will help.” February 1943: “Well, tobacco and cigarettes are going to be rationed at home. Already ground meats contain about 20 percent of soy bean meal, so we are getting down to rock bottom in this global war.” “Some big shot in Washington advises in order to help with the war effort and conserve, the farmer should take off shoes from his horses before he puts them in the barn at night. What next?” November 1943: “This is to men in draft age – There’s two things that can happen. You is drafted or you ain’t. If you ain’t you can forget it. If you is you still got two chances. You may be sent

to the front, and you may not. If you go to the front, you still got two chances, you may get shot, and you may not. If you get shot you still have two chances. You may die and you may not, and even if you die you still have two chances if you’ve been a good guy you have a chance of getting into Heaven; but Boy, Oh Boy if you haven’t been your jig is up, that’s the last chance so be careful.” October 1942: “My Dear Soldier: One of your first duties as a soldier is to take care of your health. The firmer that is, the better you will be able to do any service required of you. To preserve your health, you must try to lead as regular life as possible. Do not try to avoid your full share of labor, danger or exposure, where either is necessary or called for. Take every proper occasion for bathing your whole body and regard your personal cleanliness, no matter how much trouble it may give you. Take your food regularly as you can get it, and neither eat immoderately, nor go a long time without food, if you can avoid it. Especially be careful not to eat excess after long fasting. Try to preserve a cheerful and contented spirit, and encourage it in others. Bear hardships without grumbling, and always try to do more, rather than less, than your duty. You will have occasions to be patient more often than brave. The duty of a soldier is obedience, but beyond this you will cultivate a kind, respectful and considerate temper toward your officers. You are serving with a love for your country, and your cause, and with a determination to be faithful to every duty you have undertaken. You bear the name who to the end of his honored life never shrinks from duty, however painful, not

from danger to which duty calls. Be sure that you do not discredit it, neither by cowardice, by falsehood, by impurity nor selfishness. Remember always your home and your friends – those who will welcome your return with pride and joy if you shall come back in virtue and honor; who will cherish your memory if, faithful and true, you have given up your life; but to whom you disgrace would cause a pang sharper than death. Remember your obligations to duty and to God. And may these thoughts keep you from temptation and encourage and strengthen you in danger or sickness. And now soldiers, I commend you to God, and to the power of His grace. May God bless you and keep you. Think of your Heavenly Father in health and sickness, in joy and sorrow. Go to Him for strength and guidance. You are very dear to our hearts and your absence leaves a great place vacant in our community. If it be according to His will, may you come back to us in safety and honor, but whatever is before us, may His mercy and love be over with you, and His grace be sufficient for your and yours.” September 1944: “VDay will be celebrated in a solemn and thanksgiving manner here for the victory in Europe. Flags will be flying as soon as the good news is received. Let us not forget that our soldiers, where-ever they may be on V-Day the torture and want that they have endured so bravely. That their objective is homeward bound with an inspiration of unselfishness for justice, freedom and democracy. And pause in our duty in memory for those that have made the supreme sacrifice, a debt that cannot be paid in a material way.”

Definition of Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease caused by the inability of the pancreas to produce insulin or to use the insulin produced in the proper way. Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death among Americans; over 23 million Americans suffer from one form or another of this disease.

Causes and Risk Factors of Diabetes

The cause of Type I diabetes is genetically based, coupled with an abnormal immune response. The cause of Type II diabetes is unknown. Medical experts believe that Type II diabetes has a genetic component, but that other factors also put people at risk for the disease. These factors include: • sedentary lifestyle • obesity (weighing 20 percent above a healthy body weight) • advanced age • unhealthy diet • family history of diabetes • improper functioning of the pancreas • women having given birth to a baby weighing more than 9 lbs. • previously diagnosed gestational diabetes • previously diagnosed IGT

Description of Diabetes

After a meal, a portion of the food a person eats is broken down into sugar (glucose). The sugar then passes into the bloodstream and to the body’s cells via a hormone (called insulin) that is produced by the pancreas. Normally, the pancreas produces the right amount of insulin to accommodate the quantity of sugar. However, if the person has diabetes, either the pancreas produces little or no insulin or the cells do not respond normally to the insulin. Sugar builds up in the blood, overflows into the urine and then passes from the body unused.

There are two main types of diabetes, Type I and Type II:

Type I diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes (formerly called juvenile-onset diabetes, because it tends to affect persons before the age of 20) affects about 10 percent of people with diabetes. With this type of diabetes, the pancreas makes almost no insulin. Type II diabetes or non-insulin-dependent diabetes. This was previously called “adult-onset diabetes” because in the past it was usually discovered after age 40. However, with increasing levels of obesity and sedentary lifestyle, this disease is now being found more and more in adolescents - and sometimes even in children under 10 - and the term “adult onset” is no longer used. Type II diabetes comprises about 90 percent of all cases of diabetes. With this type of diabetes, either the pancreas produces a reduced amount of insulin, the cells do not respond to the insulin, or both. There are three less common types of diabetes called gestational diabetes, secondary diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT): Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy and causes a higher than normal glucose level reading. Secondary diabetes is caused by damage to the pancreas from chemicals, certain medications, diseases of the pancreas (such as cancer) or other glands. Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) is a condition in which the person’s glucose levels are higher than normal.

Prevention of Diabetes

There is no foolproof way to prevent diabetes, but steps can be taken to improve the chances of avoiding it: • Exercise. Exercise not only promotes weight loss but lowers blood sugar as well. • Lose weight. There is evidence that both men and women who gain weight in adulthood increase their risk of diabetes. Fact: 90 percent of diabetics are overweight. • Diet. The use of a diet low in calories and in saturated fat is an ideal strategy for preventing Type II diabetes. • Stop smoking. Smoking is especially dangerous for people with diabetes who are at risk for heart and blood vessel diseases. • Use alcohol in moderation. Moderation for men means no more than two drinks a day; for women, one drink is the limit. Choose drinks that are low in alcohol and sugar such as dry wines and light beers.

Diabetes can also damage blood vessels in the eyes, causing vision problems or blindness. Conditions may include: • Cataracts • Diabetic retinopathy • Glaucoma • Macular edema

If you have diabetes, your risk of a heart attack is the same as someone who has already had a heart attack. Both women and men with diabetes are at risk. You may not even have the typical signs of a heart attack. Other problem with the heart and blood vessels include:

When to Seek Medical Care Even if the patient is not experiencing any symptoms due to diabetes mellitus, the patient should have an annual eye examination. If the doctor notices any significant signs of diabetic eye disease or if the patient requires treatment, exams may need to be scheduled more frequently than annually. If the patient notes any significant changes in vision other than a mild temporary blurring, they should contact an Optometrist immediately.

• High cholesterol


People with diabetes are more likely to have foot problems because of nerve and blood vessel damage. Small sores or breaks in the skin may turn into deep skin ulcers if not treated properly. If these skin ulcers do not improve, or become larger or go deeper, amputation of the affected limb may be needed. To prevent problems with your feet, you should: • Check and care for your feet EVERY DAY, especially if you already have known nerve or blood vessel damage or current foot problems. Follow the instructions below. • Get a foot exam by your health care provider at least twice a year and learn whether you have nerve damage Improve control of your blood sugar • Make sure you are wearing the right kind of shoes • Stop smoking if you smoke


Diabetes can damage nerves, which means you may not feel an injury until a large sore or infection develops. Nerve damage causes pain and numbness in the feet, as well as a number of other problems with the stomach and intestines, heart, and other organs.

• High blood pressure (hypertension) • Stroke • Damage to blood vessels that supply the legs and feet (peripheral vascular disease)

Benton ➤➤From A1 a lot of people’s minds, that we went and just built this reservoir on a whim. The voters of Leipsic are the ones that said they wanted the reservoir project to go forward. They are the ones who voted for it. The reservoir was under construction when POET first decided they were coming to Leipsic. The reservoir was already started. Some of the site work hadn’t been done yet but the property had been procured and we

had done a lot of the topographical stuff a lot of the planning. We had purchased a home on the corner we had to buy; we had done a lot of those things before POET even knew we were interested in them coming to Leipsic.” He also doesn’t foresee services being drastically trimmed. “At this point in time, even with our fiscal problems, we didn’t have to cut any services to the community whatsoever: fire department is still at

the same level, police department still has the same staffing, we’re still on the same schedule with replacing the police cars, we still have our canine unit, still have our swimming pool. We still pick up the leaves. We’ve cut really deeply into the skin but we haven’t cut down to the bone and we hope we don’t have to go that route. But if we did, I’m sure there’s something out there. But at this point it would be pure speculation on what that would be.”

Appeal ➤➤From A1 pate in internet chat sessions and to look at pornography. The theft charge was asserted because he was accused of depriving the village of services while participating in this activity. He was also accused of not returning several items that belonged to the Kalida Police Department. Separately, he was accused of theft after selling several firearms, owned by the Ottawa Police Department, without permission and only giving a portion of the money from the sale of the guns back to the village. In January 2010, Gordon pleaded not-guilty to both allegations but was convicted by a jury in Putnam County. The appeals court overturned the convictions because of insufficient evidence in the case. The judges stated in their ruling that, “Gordon main-

tains that the jury clearly lost its way and that its decision was against the manifest weight of the evidence. Gordon charges that the State presented testimony that was ‘unreliable, contradictory, self servicing and lacking in substance’ and also persuade them with clear facts.” Regarding the gun sales, the Appellant Court found that the offense of theft in office can only occur if the convicted does so on behalf of the office he or she is holding. The court ultimately found that Gordon was asked to sell the guns for Ottawa Police because of his expertise with gun sales, not because he was a police officer. Regarding the pornography charge, the court found that “presuming Gordon was the person who participated in the Internet chat sessions,” there was not suf-

ficient evidence that showed he was unable to perform his job duties. The court said he could have been on a break or made up the time spent. Judge Stephen J. Shaw dissented in the appeal. He wrote, “I respectfully dissent from the majority opinion to reverse Gordon’s convictions for theft in office. Specifically, I find that the majority’s conclusions are, in many instances, based upon interpretations and speculation weighted heavily in favor of the defendant’s version of events, the credibility of which has been determined adversely by the jury.” In March 2010, Gordon was sentenced to serve a total of 21 months in prison and to pay almost $2,000 in restitution. He was released on his on recognizance pending this appeal.

The Origin of Veteran’s Day

In 1921, an unknown World War I American soldier was buried in Arlington National Cemetery. This site, on a hillside overlooking the Potomac River and the city of Washington, became the focal point of reverence for America’s veterans.




Similar ceremonies occurred earlier in England and France, where an unknown soldier was buried in each nation’s highest place of honor (in England, Westminster Abbey; in France, the Arc de Triumph). These memorial gestures all took place on November 11, giving universal recognition to the celebrated ending of World War I fighting at 11 a.m., November 11, 1918 (the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month). The day became known as “Armistice Day”. Armistice Day officially received its name in America in 1926 through a Congressional resolution. It became a national holiday 12 years later by similar Congressional action. If the idealistic hope had been realized that World War I was “the War to end all Wars,” November 11 might still be called Armistice Day. But only a few years after the holiday was proclaimed, war broke out in Europe. Sixteen and one-half million Americans took part. Four hundred seven thousand of them died in service, more than 292,000 in battle.

Armistice Day Changed To Honor All Veterans

Realizing that peace was equally preserved by veterans of WW II and Korea, Congress was requested to make this day an occasion to honor those who have served America in all wars. In 1954 President Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11 as Veterans Day. On Memorial Day 1958, two more unidentified American war dead were brought from overseas and interred in the plaza beside the unknown soldier of World War I. One was killed in World War II, the other in the Korean War. In 1973, a law passed providing interment of an unknown American from the Vietnam War, but none was found for several years. In 1984, an unknown serviceman from that conflict was placed alongside the others. To honor these men, symbolic of all Americans who gave their lives in all wars, an Army honor guard, The 3d U.S. Infantry (The Old Guard), keeps day and night vigil. A law passed in 1968 changed the national commemoration of Veterans Day to the fourth Monday in October. It soon became apparent, however, that November 11 was a date of historic significance to many Americans. Therefore, in 1978 Congress returned the observance to its traditional date.

National Ceremonies Held at Arlington

The focal point for official, national ceremonies for Veterans Day continues to be the memorial amphitheater built around the Tomb of the Unknowns. At 11 a.m. on November 11, a combined color guard representing all military services executes “Present Arms” at the tomb. The nation’s tribute to its war dead is symbolized by the laying of a presidential wreath. The bugler plays “taps.” The rest of the ceremony takes place in the amphitheater. Every year the President of the United States urges All Americans to honor the commitment of our Veterans through appropriate public ceremonies.

all the parents who have passed while their children were students at Glandorf Elementary. As sixth graders, Girl Scout Troop 422 had two classmates whose mothers had passed away. The troop wanted to do something special to honor their memory. The troop asked the students who wanted to participate to each donate $1 to go toward the purchase of a tree and plaque. The Glandorf Elementary

students generously donated $226. It was decided the tree would be planted at the new elementary school. The remaining money will be donated to Putnam County Hospice. The troop members who planned this special memorial are Kaitlin Brown, Claire Crumrine, Elissa Fought, Corrine Halker, Hannah Meyer, Madison Rieman and Erica Theisan and troop leaders Stephanie Crumrine and Sharon Brown.

Vikings defense dominates Redskins in playoff game

By Kirk Dougal Sentinel Correspondent LEIPSIC – The Leipsic defense smothered Arcadia in their first round match-up of the Division VI football playoffs last Saturday night, holding the Redskins to less than 100 yards of total offense on the way to a 51-0 Viking rout. The game did not start out like Leipsic was going to put up big numbers. After holding Arcadia to a threeand-out – something the Redskin fans would see seven times over the course of the evening – the Viking’s first offensive series ended Staff photo/Kirk Dougal with an interception. The Leipsic’s Cody Guerra (56) and Josh Turnwald (52) combine with another team- Redskins punted again after mate for a stop on Arcadia’s Tyler Bame (14) during their regional quarterfinal three plays and Leipsic was game Saturday night. The Vikings defense had a big game against the Redskins also forced to punt. Howevin their shutout win. er, the catch was muffed and

the chase for the football was on. After it bounced away with multiple players from both teams touching it, Leipsic’s Cody Guerra finally pounced on it on the Arcadia 31-yard line. Viking running back Trevor Schroeder took the ball on a sweep left for 11 yards and a late hit penalty took the ball down to the nine-yard line for a first and goal. Schroeder was lost to an ankle injury on the next play and the drive stalled at the five. Devin Mangus then came on to kick a 22yard field goal to give the Vikings a 3-0 lead. Taking advantage of that Arcadia mistake was all it took to get Leipsic rolling. “That’s kind of been our thing,” said Viking head

coach Joe Kirkendall. “We’re not going to give up a lot of big plays and eventually we’re going to get a stop or a turnover and the offense has done a real good job of taking advantage of those opportunities.” Leipsic’s defense continued to throttle Arcadia, holding them again to a threeand-out. After the ensuing punt, the Vikings took over at their own 49-yard line and went to work. Trevor Schroeder’s replacement at running back, Brady Schroeder, took the first hand off around the end for 14 yards. Quarterback Zach Kuhlman then hooked up with Nate Schey on a skinny post for a catch at the eight-yard line and a first and goal. Brady ➤➤See VIKINGS/B3

Eastwood’s team speed too much for Ottawa-Glandorf By Charlie Warnimont Sentinel Sports Editor PEMBERVILLE — Watching game film Ottawa-Glandorf could see the Eastwood football team had good speed. But seeing that speed on film and in person are two different things. Plus when you are able to use that speed in every aspect of the game it makes it difficult for an opponent to execute their game plan. Eastwood took advantage of their quickness Saturday night to break the big play on offense and on defense held the O-G offense in check as the Eagles rolled to a 31-0 win in their Division IV, Region 14 regional quar-

terfinal contest. The win sends the Eagles (11-0) to the regional semi-finals this week where they will face Columbus Bishop Hartley in Ashland. The Titans saw an excellent season end at 8-3. “Speed is hard to emulate in practice,” O-G coach Ken Schriner said. “That was the challenge, how do you handle things inside? You have to give them credit, they outplayed us in every facet of the game. They just execute everything. They were cutting inside and they made some nice plays.” Eastwood showed their speed three plays into the game when senior running back Zach Conkle took a

handoff and found an opening in the middle of the line before heading towards the left sideline. Once into the open area Conkle never slowed until he reached the endzone on a 65 yard scoring run just over a minute into the contest. The scoring run capped off a quick three play, 78 yard drive. “Third play of the game he takes it 65 yards and that was the number one thing we said going into the game we had to find a way to combat their speed, which obviously we didn’t do,” Schriner said. “And numStaff photo/Charlie Warnimont ber two we couldn’t give up Ottawa-Glandorf’s Caleb Siefker (10) looks for running room in the Titans rebig plays.

PANDORA – Leipsic had a very successful volleyball season winning a pair of league titles and going through the regular season undefeated.

Despite all of their efforts to knock a shot past Lexington sophomore goalie Kyle Dunlap, they were only able to manage one goal, that coming in the first half that tied the match. “It’s the way it goes sometimes,” O-G coach Mike Weihrauch said. “A couple of times we thought we had it and for whatever reason they called it back or whatever. Their goalkeeper you have to give him credit because he made a couple of incredible saves. It’s just one of those nights.” O-G’s first golden scoring chance came about 10 minutes into the match when junior TJ Metzger caught up with a pass and went at Dunlap one-on-one. Dunlap stood his ground and knocked away Metzger’s hard line drive towards the goal. Lexington’s Dillon Thomas gave the Minutemen a 1-0 lead with 19:15 left in the first half when he picked up a deflection and slipped a shot just inside the post to his left. Three minutes later O-G saw a chance to tie the match deflected away as Dunlap made a diving save to knock away another Metzger shot headed towards the corner of the goal. Staff photo/Charlie Warnimont That led to a corner kick for Ottawa-Glandorf’s Winston Fuetter (9) chases down a pass from a teammate as the Titans and a second shot Lexington defenders Mason Dray (14) and Brian Goodall (22) race back to stop attempt went wide. his run on the goal. The Titans lost this regional final game in a shootout. O-G tied the match at 1-1 with 14:30 left when Nate

Brickner knocked a shot attempt into the goal. Brickner took a pass and got behind the Lexington defense. Dunlap came out to cut down on Brickner’s angle but he was able to bounce his shot attempt past him and into the goal. The second half saw both teams have an apparent goal taken away by the officials. Lexington thought they had reclaimed the lead when they were able to get a shot by O-G goalie Nate Schmiedebusch. However, the Minutemen were called for offsides and the goal was waved off. Just before that, a Lexington player took a shot that was headed for the upper left hand corner of the goal. Schmiedebusch deflected the shot away which led to a corner kick for Lexington the defense was able to clear. With 14:17 left in the second half, O-G appeared to score after a wild scramble in front of the Lexington goal after a corner kick. The goal was waved off as O-G was called for goalie interference by the official. The Titans had five more shots on goal in the second half but could not convert any of them leading to overtime. The same was true in overtime as the offenses traded runs up and down the field only to come up empty leading to the shootout. In the shootout, O-G went first and were denied by Dunlap as Cory Imm’s hard shot to center of the goal

was knocked away. After Lexington’s Andru Switzer scored to give his team the lead, Metzger evened the score at 1-1 with a goal. Kevin Turner was next for Lexington and scored despite Schmiedebusch guessing correctly on which way he was shooting the ball. Schmiedebusch was able to get a hand on the attempt, but it was hit hard enough that it was able to deflect into the goal. Korey Niese took the Titans third PK and was denied by Dunlap with a diving stop to his right. Mason Willeke gave the Minutemen a 3-1 lead converting his PK before Matt Kaufman scored for the Titans making it 3-2. Lexinton’s Brian Goodall ended the match when he converted his shot. “We just tell our keeper to do the best he can, I’ll love him either way,” Weihrauch said when asked what kind of instructions he gave to his goalie. “You don’t want to put any added pressure on him because there’s enough pressure on him in the moment. You just make sure you are behind him either way. “I don’t think we ever got frustrated because the way they were coming you knew there was going to be another one. The way they were working hard, you just thought it was going to happen,” Weihrauch concluded.

Speed ➤➤From B1 plays. How many big plays did they have? That’s a credit to what they are doing. They are not fancy, but they execute very well. They have patience. They played very well.” Although the Eagles scored quickly the O-G defense stepped up and shut them down the remainder of the opening quarter. Although the O-G defense was able to hold the Eagle offense, O-G’s offense was unable to answer with a scoring drive of their own. It took until their third possession of the game to get a first down as the Titans moved from their own 34 to the Eastwood 36. The drive stalled there after a penalty and negative yardage play had them facing second and 18. After an O-G punt pinned Eastwood at their own 17, the Eagle offense was able to break another big play as Zach Conkle made it a 14-0 game with a 77 yard scoring run. After forcing another Titan punt, Eastwood’s offense put together their first sustained drive of the game as they marched from their own 20 to the O-G 40. On a second down play from the 40, Zach Conkle found another opening in the Titan defense and raced 40 yards to the endzone as the Eastwood lead went to 21-0 with 6:28 left in the first half. Ottawa-Glandorf’s offense responded with a drive that took them from their own 26 to the East-

wood nine yard line. A 31 yard run by Caleb Siefker had O-G looking to put points on the scoreboard, but the Eagle defense had other ideas. After a six yard run by Tristan Parker to the Eastwood three, the Eagle defense stiffened, forcing O-G into a fourth down play from the two yard line. On fourth down, Siefker was hit behind the line scrimmage, and fumbled the ball with the Eagles recovering at their own four. In the final three plus minutes of the half the Eagles were able to drive from their own four to the O-G 24. After an incomplete pass, junior running back Isaiah Conkle took a handoff and raced around the right end to the endzone to make the score 28-0 with 15 seconds left in the half. “That was probably the difference right there,” Eastwood coach Jerry Rutherford said. “When we stopped them down there on fourth down, then we came back and scored.” The second half was a defensive struggle as there were only three points scored, those coming on a 37 yard field goal by Derek Snowden with 3:43 left to play. Ottawa-Glandorf had two sustained drives to start the second half. The Titans took the second half kickoff and marched to the Eastwood 29. After a four yard run by Craig Rieman on first down, O-G threw two incomplete passes before Siefker took

off on fourth down and came up two yards short of a first down. On their next possession, the Titans drove to the Eagle 11. On third down from the 11 Siefker dropped back to pass and threw a pass into the left flat where it was picked off by junior safety Skylar Dierker. The Eagles then put together a 13 play drive that led to the field goal. All 13 plays were runs as Isaiah and Zach Conkle and Alex Keyes shared the runs. “They were very physical and part of it was the speed of their linebackers,” Schriner said. “They were physical up front and I felt we were going to be able to move them up front. They did a good job of plugging and they stayed low. They were tough and hard-nosed upfront. Their defensive scheme really gave us some problems. Once we get into a hole and tried to dig out it’s awful tough on our offense being a running team and you need to throw the ball and get out of it is difficult on us.” “We were concerned because they run so much with the option, they can throw and Parker runs hard. They can do just so much” Rutherford said. “We felt they were going to have to run right at us and that was possible with the fullback (Rieman) they have and the line they have. We don’t change much defensively each week we just play our package each week.”

quick stop after forcing Leipsic to punt. The Vikings took over on the Arcadia 49 following the Redskins’ second punt of the second period. Devin Mangus took a direct snap for 12 yards and then Kuhlman scrambled for six. Schey had a key rush with a 10-yard run on an inside handoff out of the Wing-T set but it was Brady Schroeder again who finished the drive, this time from two yards out, for a 17-0 Leipsic lead.

Arcadia finally found its only life of the first half when Lucas Recker caught a 14-yard pass from Casey Mock for the team’s initial first down of the game at the 5:14 mark of the second quarter. Two plays later, Recker took the ball around the end for nine yards and another Redskin first. But the drive stalled after that and Arcadia was forced to punt with only 1:35 left to play before intermission. That was plenty of time for the Vikings. After they

Ottawa-Glandorf’s Tristan Parker (24) and Craig Rieman (45) combine on a stop of Eastwood running back Zach Conkle during their Division IV regional quarterfinal playoff game Saturday. The Titans’ Brad Racer (42) is on the bottom of the pile.

Zach Conkle led the Eagles with 304 yards on 18 carries and Isaiah Conkle had 104 yards on 18 carries. Keyes added 49 yards on nine carries as Eastwood rushed for 460 yards in the game. “Zach had a great night,” Rutherford said. “That’s what we expect from him I guess. Any time one of the Conkles break through the line they can turn a five yard gain into a 60 yard gain. That’s pretty much how it has been.”

Parker led O-G with 50 yards on 12 carries and Siefker 47 yards on 12 carries. O-G finished with only 127 yards rushing, while Siefker was 11 of 21 passing for 123 yards and Parker was one for one for 17 yards. Jacob Leopold had four catches for 30 yards ad Parker caught three passes for 59 yards. ***

lost yardage on a rush and an incomplete pass, Kuhlman found Mangas for 13 yards and a first down with only 50 seconds left to go. Kuhlman went right back to Mangas on play action, faking into the line before hitting the receiver on a slant. Mangas split the defenders and he did not stop running until he crossed the goal line 69 yards later for a 24-0 halftime lead. Leipsic scored on the opening drive of the second half on a one-yard plunge by Schey and the Viking defense forced another three plays and a punt. After that, the only thing to be decided was the final margin. Leipsic’s other scores came on a 32-yard interception return for a touchdown by Derek Steffan when he jumped a dig route, Mangas caught a five-yard touchdown catch, and freshman Jordan Chamberlin got into the mix when he bounced a running play from the threehole to the outside and raced 57 yards for a score. After the game, Coach Kirkendall was very happy with the way the base defense played and how the offense picked themselves up when Trevor Schroeder went down. “We play a 4-3 and if we don’t have to change, Staff photo/Charlie Warnimont we don’t want to change Leipsic’s Brady Schroeder (2) follows the blocking of Caleb Barrera (14) during because our kids are very comfortable. Our linebacktheir playoff game Saturday night. ers were very disciplined

because with the wing-T and the motion, you’ve got to be able to handle different reads and different keys. We did a pretty good job of that for the most part,” he said. “(Brady Schroeder) is a senior and he missed the first five weeks of the season with a stress fracture of his hip. Last week for the first time he said, ‘I don’t hurt. Everything feels good.’ He played a tremendous game last week defensively and today he stepped in with limited reps and executed and ran tremendously hard with a good burst. I’m really happy with how he did.” Casey Mock was seven of 27 passing for 52 yards and one interception for Arcadia. He was also sacked five times for a negative 23 yards. Lane Mellott led the Redskin ground game with

Underwood talks to students about effects of drugs and alcohol By Charlie Warnimont Sentinel Sports Editor MILLER CITY — John Underwood has been involved with athletics most of his life. He started out as an athlete becoming an all-American and international level distance runner before turning to coaching athletes, several of which participated in the Olympics. Although he has moved away from the coaching ranks, he is still involved with athletes. Now his involvement with athletes is centered around traveling the country and talking with them on how to make proper choices to aid them in their training.

Last Wednesday, Underwood, founder and president of the American Athletic Institute, was in Putnam County talking with high school students from all nine school districts about the dangers alcohol and drugs have on the body and how they affect an athlete in getting the most from their body during training or competition. Underwood presented his program “Life of an Athlete” at OttawaGlandorf, Fort Jennings and Miller City during the day and to adults that evening at O-G. Although he spoke at just three of the schools students were bused in from the other school systems to

hear the message presented by Underwood. The program was sponsored by Project SAFE, a federally funded Safe Schools/Healthy Students Initiative written and managed by the Putnam County Educational Service Center. “I didn’t come here today to tell you guys how to live your lives, you have to figure that out for ourselves,” Underwood said early in the program at Miller City. “What I’m here to do is give you information to help you make better choices.” A lot of Underwood’s research was done on athletes while he was at the Olympic Training Facility at Lake

Placid in New York. And although he was looking to study various aspects of training and their effect on the heart or muscles he developed a second opinion to his research. “The most overlooked aspect of performance isn’t your heart or muscles, it’s your brain and central nervous system,” Underwood said. “Now we try to make people realize in all kinds of performances there are two kinds of performance, mental performance and physical performance factors.” Underwood said two of the biggest factors that can alter an athletes performance is drugs and alcohol. The use

of alcohol and drugs by an athlete during a training period or after a competition not only takes away what they have achieved but can hamper the body’s recovery time after physical exertion. A drink after physical activity can extend the recovery rate for the body or mind by an extra day. “The number one problem we have right now in the US, as far as lifestyle, is alcohol, no question,” Underwood says. “Social drinking in regards to physical performance and mental performance can shut down the brains activity and affect every system in the human body in a negative way. If your brain is impaired, there

is no way you can perform at an optimal level, mentally or physically. They think they are at their best, but they don’t even have a chance at being their best.” Underwood backed up his findings with a wide variety of slides shown throughout the program. The slides showed the affects drugs and alcohol have on the brain and how constant use of these items can shrink the brain over a period of time. Underwood’s message has been well received across the nation as he has spoken to athletes at 700 colleges and universities, as well as professional athletes and Navy Seals.

Joel Pollitz to preach at New Creation OTTAWA — OttawaGlandorf High School class of 2007 graduate and University of Toledo fifth year senior, Joel Pollitz, will be serving as the guest preacher for the New Creation Lutheran Church’s weekend services of worship, Saturday, Nov. 12 (5 p.m.) and Sunday, Nov. 13 (10 a.m.). Initially, back in 2007 when Pollitz began studies as a UT Rocket, he chose to pursue an undergraduate degree in business but then eventually made the decision to switch his major to social work. Scheduled to graduate in the spring of 2012, Pollitz will have a minor in business to accompany his social work degree. Pollitz has been heavily involved in the Campus Crusade for Christ Ministry at UT and during the 201011 year served as the Mas-

ter of Ceremonies for the weekly “CRU” gathering on the campus. In addition, Pollitz has been instrumental in the formation of a prayer network, where students come together to pray with and for one another at the center of the campus on Wednesday and Sunday evening. On the side, Pollitz is a big fan of Christian Rap Music and disc golf and often plays the Ottawa Memorial Park Disc Golf Course when he’s home. For the past two summers, Pollitz has worked on the staff at Miracle Camp located in southwestern Michigan. During spring break of 2011, Pollitz spent a week in southwest Asia experiencing Christian outreach from a more global perspective. In the summer of 2009, Pollitz participated in a summer mission outreach

with Campus Crusade that took him to Virginia Beach, Va. At this point in his life, Pollitz is prayerfully considering the direction for this future, perhaps securing employment in the social work field or some form of Christian Ministry, or both. Pollitz is the son of Pastor Ken and Linda Rae Pollitz, in Ottawa. New Creation seeks to live out the mission of being a “place to find God seeking you” and also a welcome place where “no perfect people are allowed!” New Creation Church is located on the eastern edge of Ottawa at 8127 E. Main Street. If people have more questions, they may call 419-523-6250 or check out the web site at

PUTNAM COUNTY — The Better Business Bureau has received reports that persons using Online banking services are being subjected to “pop-ups” while on the bank website asking for personal and financial information. The “pop-up” appears to be a form sent by the bank, including the bank’s logo, asking for such things as a social security number, bank account number, credit card number, etc. This is a particularly nasty scam because it looks so legitimate and comes while you are on the

bank’s official website. Banks and other financial institutions do not solicit information in this manner and any such “pop-up” should be deleted and reported to the bank. Another scam that is being perpetrated in the area concerns parents of high school students who may be preparing to take the ACT or SAT college entrance exams. This one comes in the form of a telephone call to parents of pre-college age students. The caller claims, due to a new requirement, the student must purchase

a kit containing CDs or DVDs, which supposedly prepares the student for the tests. Schools in the area report no such purchase requirement of any such product and have begun the process of notifying parents and students in the region. If anyone has been solicited in this manner, the BBB would like to hear from them with any information they can provide about the phone call such as name, address and telephone number.

wet weather has resulted in some wheat fields being planted as late as November and less overall wheat acreage being planted. The emerged wheat and the late planted wheat will both need very favorable weather this winter and next spring to make a good crop. Other farm practices impacted by the wet weather have been fall tillage, fall herbicide applications and fall fertilizer applications. Field work farmers are unable to complete this fall means more work that will need to be done next spring in advance of spring planting. Motorists need to continue to watch for harvest equipment on the roadways. Avoid the temptation to pass large equipment on rural roads until the farmer is aware of your presence and has time and space to pull over. Also, now that the corn crop is being harvested, deer will be moving across fields and roadways much more frequently. Be especially wary of deer crossing the road both early in the morning and late in the evening.
