Battelle, the world’s largest
independent research and
development organization, excels
at tackling big, complex problems.
So it’s a natural ft for it to assess
proposed restoration technologies
that would help mitigate the
harmful blooms of algae and toxic
cyanobacteria in Grand Lake St.
Marys.
For a third consecutive summer,
excessive blooms threaten to plague
the 12,700-acre lake in western
Ohio. The forced closure of the
lake to all recreational activities
last year resulted in the loss of an
appreciable portion of the $150
million in annual tourism revenue
for the area and could mean the
same this year. The problem is
exacerbated by the potential loss
of some of the 2,500 jobs the
lake supports. The algae blooms
generally have been linked to both
manmade and natural causes, so
mitigation proposals will aim at a
diverse range of options both in
the lake and upstream.
While Battelle promotes
environmental stewardship around
the world, it also is focused on the
challenges in its home state. The
organization is bringing the power
of science and technology to bear
in solving the problem for Ohio’s
largest inland lake-an historic
recreational gem. The work will
continue for the next six months.
Originally constructed in the mid
1800s to store water for the Miami-
Erie Canal, the shallow lake has
for the past few decades become
increasingly enriched with nutrients,
particularly phosphates that enter
the lake from various sources in
the watershed, including on-land
manure spreading practices.
Battelle’s contract with the
Western Ohio Education Foundation,
in cooperation with Wright State
University Lake Campus, is funded
by grants from the Grand Lake St.
Marys Restoration Commission
and the Ohio Department of Natural
Resources. Battelle will provide
experts for the performance of three
tasks:
• Screening evaluations for
vendor-proposed lake restoration
technologies
• Provide status/feedback to
state and local stakeholder groups
• Assess and recommended
aeration technologies for GLSM
sheltered areas
“This contract is vitally
important,” said Marty Toomajian,
President of Battelle’s Energy,
Environment, and Material
Sciences Global Business. “The
toxic algae at Grand Lake St.
Marys is a problem stemming from
many sources and it will take a
methodical, scientifc approach to
correct it. We’ll take a look at the
proposed solutions, screen them and
make recommendations on which
technologies hold the most potential
in the long and short term.”
As the world’s largest independent
research and development
organization, Battelle provides
innovative solutions to the world’s
most pressing needs through its
four global businesses: Laboratory
Management; National Security;
Health and Life Sciences; and
Energy, Environment and Material
Sciences. It advances scientifc
discovery and application by
conducting $6.5 billion in
global R&D annually through
contract research, laboratory
management and technology
commercialization. Headquartered
in Columbus, Ohio, Battelle oversees
22,000 employees in more than 130
locations worldwide, including
seven national laboratories which
Battelle manages or co-manages for
the U.S. Department of Energy and
the U.S. Department of Homeland
Security and a nuclear energy lab in
the United Kingdom.
Battelle also is one of the
nation’s leading charitable trusts
focusing on societal and economic
impact and actively supporting and
promoting science, technology,
engineering and mathematics
(STEM) education.

Fran Guilbault, formerly
a teacher and basketball
coach at St. Henry High
School, was the guest
speaker at the July 12
meeting of the Coldwater
Kiwanis Club. Fran, who
was born in the Upper
Peninsula of Michigan,
was a high school athlete
who won fourteen varsity
letters. Due to the lack
of job opportunities in
the area at the time, he
joined the Marines after
high school graduation.
When he completed his
Marine duties, he accepted
a football scholarship to
Western Reserve College
in Michigan. He played
football one season, but
completed his undergraduate
degree and then took a
teaching assistantship at
Ohio University where he
completed his master’s
degree. St. Henry schools
contacted him about a job
and he said Art Brophy
convinced him to take a
job there. Fran coached 38
years, compiling a record
of 625-217. His teams won
three state championships
and he was selected to the
Ohio Basketball Hall of
Fame. Fran expressed his
coaching philosophy with
these phrases – make the
game for the kids, keep a
low profle during games,
and the best defense is a
powerful offense.

If you eat Tyson products,
you can help Immaculate
Conception School earn
money! Principal Polly
Muhlenkamp has announced
that the school is taking part
in a national fund-raising
program sponsored by Tyson
Foods, Inc. The program is
called Tyson Project A+™
and according
to Principal
Muhlenkamp, it
works like this:
There’s a “Tyson
Project A+™
label, worth 24¢,
on various Tyson
products that feature
the Tyson Project A+™ logo
on the front of the
package. Schools earn
money from Tyson
by collecting and
redeeming the labels.”
Participating schools
can earn up to $12,000
per academic year, and
there are no restrictions
on how the funds are used.
“We can use the money for
anything we need — feld
trips, computer equipment,
sports gear, library books
— anything!” said Principal
Muhlenkamp. “Our Tyson
Project A+™ coordinator has
set up a collection site at I.C.
School where parents and
others in the community can
drop off their Tyson Project
A+™ redemption labels.”
Mrs. Muhlenkamp urges
everyone to participate in the
program. “If everyone out
in the community clips and
saves the Tyson Project A+™
redemption labels, we can
make this program a huge
success for our school.”

children grieve
differently from
adults which is why
camp BeArable
has a mix of fun,
games and serious
dialogue during the
agency’s annual
camp BeArable.
the camp which is
free and open to
all youth grieving
the loss of a loved
one will be held
July 22-24 at the
Spiritual center at
maria Stein.
“there is a
variety of ways
that provide a fun
experience and
at the same time,
help the children
deal with their
issues about loss,”
explained marlene
Black, State of the heart
Bereavement Specialist
and camp Director. this
year, emily Jasenski who
along with her husband
c.J., owns and operates
elementslife, 620 S.
Broadway in Greenville,
will provide a new aspect
for camp.
“We will be doing
some guided imagery
for the youth at camp,”
said Jasenski , a certified
instructor, who has done
guided imagery. She
explained that guided
imagery may be something
like asking the children
to pretend they are on
an underwater voyage,
accompanied by their
deceased loved one. “this
is playful and colorful and
helps the child remove
themselves from their
current situation in life.
later, when they return
home from the camp,
they can recall a positive
playful experience they
had, particularly on days
when they are feeling the
loss of their loved one.”
Black said the idea of
guided imagery is a good
one as it mixes fun with
a way to revisit a positive
experience. “if they are
having a day when they are
feeling sad, they can think
back to something positive
that they experienced at
camp, such as the guided
imagery.”
Jasenski said there are
other ideas to help the
youth. “We might try a
time travel game, either
going back in time, or
going forward. All ages
seem to like these kinds
of games which are very
helpful. these games and
ideas help them to tap into
their emotions and express
themselves.”
children who attend the
camp, which is being held
for the eleventh year, say
they enjoy the camp as
they find it to be a “safe
environment” where they
can talk openly with others
about their grief.
“they find out that they
are not alone in their grief,
and begin to express how
they feel,” Black said.
each child has a specially
trained adult “buddy” who
spends time with them.
camp is for children ages
six to 15 and there need be
no association with hospice
care. most who have
attended in the past have
no connection with State
of the heart hospice care.
the children experience
a welcome Friday night
with a campfire which is
repeated Saturday night.
on Sunday afternoon, they
participate in a balloon
launch, attaching messages
to loved ones and sending
the balloons into the air.
hospices nationwide
conduct similar camps.
Bereavement specialists
believe that early
intervention with grieving
children can prevent
problems later in life.
State of the heart cares
for families and patients
in eastern indiana and
western ohio who are
confronting a life limiting
illness.
it is necessary to register
for the camp which normally
hosts about 50 youth.
Applications are available
at the agency website,
www.stateoftheheartcare.
org. Acceptance is on
a first come, first served
basis. Applications are
also available by visiting
the agency’s offices in
Greenville, Portland,
indiana, and coldwater.
Volunteers are needed
for camp as well. to
register or find out about
volunteering, call Black at
1-800-417-7535.

Your 401(k) offers tax-deductible contributions, tax-deferred growth of
earnings potential and a variety of investment options — so it’s a great tool
for building retirement savings. Yet like all tools, your 401(k) must be used
properly to get the best results. That’s why you should review your 401(k) at
least annually and make whatever adjustments are needed.
Depending on where you work, you may get some 401(k) review help
from your plan provider. But if that assistance isn’t available, you might want to
consult with a financial professional to make sure you’re getting the maximum
benefit from your plan.
As you begin to review your 401(k), your first question should probably
be this:
“How much should I contribute?” At the very least, try to put in enough to
receive your employer’s matching contribution, if one is offered. If you don’t
earn this match, you are essentially walking away from “free money.” Beyond
this, though, the amount you put into your 401(k) might depend on what other
retirement savings vehicles you have available. For instance, if you’re eligible,
you may also want to contribute to a Roth IRA, which offers tax-free growth
potential, provided you’ve had your account for five years and don’t start
taking withdrawals until you’re 59½.
Of course, it’s not only how much you put into your 401(k) that determines
its success — it’s also how you choose to allocate your investment dollars.
(Keep in mind that asset allocation does not guarantee a profit or protect
against loss.) Your 401(k) may have a dozen or more investment choices,
such as stock funds, bond funds and money market funds. To choose the right
investment mix, you’ll need to consider a variety of factors, including these:
• Your age — Generally speaking, the younger you are, the more
aggressive you can afford to be with your 401(k) investments, because
you’ll have decades in which to potentially overcome the inevitable down
periods of the market. As you get older, you may wish to invest somewhat
more conservatively, but you’ll still need some growth potential in your 401(k)
portfolio.
• Your goals — Everyone has different goals for retirement. You might
want to retire early and travel the world, while your co-worker desires to
work as long as possible and then, upon retirement, stay close to home and
pursue hobbies. Because you each have different goals, with different income
needs, you also may need to follow different investment strategies within your
401(k).
• Your other retirement income sources — If you have a variety of
retirement income sources — a pension from another job, an IRA, a spouse
with generous retirement benefits — you may need to invest differently,
perhaps less aggressively, than if you had fewer options for retirement
income.
Apart from putting away as much as you can into your 401(k) and
choosing the right investment mix, what else can you do to get the most out
of your plan? Here’s a suggestion: If you have worked at various jobs and
acquired multiple 401(k)s, consider rolling them over into one account. You
might save money on fees and reduce paperwork, but more importantly,
you’ll be able to concentrate your resources and pursue a unified investment
approach, with your investment dollars working together toward your ultimate
retirement goals.
As you can see, a 401(k) review and rollover can reward you in many
ways — so do whatever it takes to maximize your 401(k)’s performance.

John M. Yoder, Financial Advisor
Like every other investor, you prefer not to see the value of your investments
drop. But at some point they will fall simply because of the ups and downs of the
market. And how you respond to short-term losses can help determine if you enjoy
long-term investment success.
Investors’ feelings about losses can be complex. In the field of economics, an
area of study is devoted to “loss aversion” — the concept that people dislike losing
money so much that, given a choice, they’d prefer to avoid losses rather than take
gains. For example, if you have a high degree of loss aversion, then you will find
greater dissatisfaction by losing $100 than you’d get satisfaction from taking a $100
profit.
Loss aversion can lead to various forms of negative investment behavior. Here
are two of the most common results:
• Seeking “risk-free” investments — When you think of investment losses, the
first thing that probably comes to mind is a drop in stock prices. If you’re really loss-
averse, you might seek to avoid this situation by simply avoiding stocks and placing
all your money in other investments. While some of these investments may seem
“risk free,” you must consider factors such as inflation risk — the possibility that
these investments may provide returns that don’t keep up with the rate of inflation.
• Holding “losers” too long — From time to time, you will own investments that,
for whatever reason, underperform. If you’re highly loss-averse, though, you may
have a tough time acknowledging the losing nature of these investments, so you
may be tempted to hold on to them until they “bounce back.” But if the investment’s
fundamentals change, or if the investment no longer aligns with your goals, it may
be time to sell it and look for other opportunities. Conversely, you may want to
hold on to quality investments whose price has dropped in the short term, because
these investments may well recover.
How can you avoid these types of behavior? For starters, you’ll need to
recognize the symptoms of loss aversion in yourself — and then resolve to
overcome them. Accept the fact that short-term losses are part of investing and that
every single investment carries some type of risk.
This doesn’t mean, of course, that you should do nothing to reduce your risk.
One effective risk-fighting measure you can take is to diversify your holdings by
investing in a variety of stocks, bonds, government securities, CDs and other
investment vehicles. If you had all your holdings in only stocks or bonds, a downturn
primarily affecting one of those assets could lead to a big hit for your portfolio. But
by spreading your dollars among a variety of investments, you’re also spreading
the risk. Keep in mind, though, that diversification by itself can’t guarantee a profit
or protect against loss.
Investment losses, even short-term ones, aren’t much fun. But by not
overreacting to these losses, and by diversifying your portfolio in a way that best
meets your individual needs, you can look past today’s losses toward tomorrow’s
possibilities.

From the Archives of the
Mercer County Chronicle
10 YEARS AGO (2001)
To commemorate Ohio’s
200th birthday, the Ohio
legislature adopted a new
offcial license plate that features
the Ohio bicentennial logo. The
red, white and blue embossed
plates were shipped to deputy
registrars beginning July 16.
Two area residents recently
received teaching degrees from
Wright State Lake Campus.
Kathy Schwieterman of
Coldwater received certifcation
in secondary education and
Tonya Carey of Celina received
her Bachelor of Science in
elementary education.
25 YEARS AGO (1986)
A standing room only crowd
assembled in the cafeteria of Fort
Recovery High School Tuesday
evening to discuss the traffc
deaths which have occurred on
Sharpsburg Road. There were
30 reported accidents and eight
deaths which have occurred
since 1982.
The Coldwater ACME
team defeated Wapak 5-1 to
win a berth in the State ACME
tournament at Celina. Mike
Klosterman and Scott Eyink
hit solo home runs and Chuck
Welsch was the winner going
the distance giving up the one
run on six hits.
50 YEARS AGO (1961)
Egypt is leading the Eastern
Division of the Tri-County
Softball League with an 8-1
record and Buck’s Corner
leads the Western Division
with an 8-2 mark. This Sunday
Fencebusters play at Cassella,
Egypt is at St. Anthony, Maria
Stein is at Bucks Corner, St.
Rosa is at St. Joe, Sharpsburg
at Chickasaw and Yorkshire at
Philothea.
Nineteen hogs were stolen
from the Melvin Brunswick
farm in rural Fort Recovery on
Sunday. Tire marks indicated
that the thieves were probably
headed west towards the Indiana
line.
Dependability is the design
keynote of Frigidaire’s high
styled automatic washers and
dryers for 1962. According to
Tom Buschar of R. A. Hoyng
Supply, engineers subjected the
products to the most grueling and
torturous tests ever conducted
for an appliance during design
and development.
Stop and think for a minute
and try to fgure out what you
could do for the poor people
of these United States if you
had access to 86 Million dollars
and also have a possibility
of having even more as time
goes on. Just how many homes
could you build? How many
underprivileged kids could you
help get a good start in college?
How many kids could you help
at some of the charity hospitals?
The list goes on and on of
possibility helping someone
whom really needs the money.
You must be wondering where
all this money is coming from?
Well my friends that amount
was raised for Mr. Obama to
help him get re-elected in 2012.
And the really sad part is
that he lives in Washington,
DC, the place with the highest
homeless rate of any city in
the US. You would think he
would want to at least clean up
Washington, DC.
I have written before on
this subject and was told by
a prominent person in Mercer
County that I didn’t know much
about politics. He was right and
you know what, I don’t really
care to know more. I am much
more comfortable in my own
little world. I have never fgured
out why anyone would want to
spend that much money to get
elected to a job that doesn’t
even come close to that amount
in a salary. I must be missing
something here. I think I am too
old to keep fghting the issues
that come from Washington.
One of these days I am going to
have to fnd someone younger
who can take over for me.
That’s My Opinion........
What’s Yours?
The New Idea Historic
Preservation Committee Members
of the Mercer County Historical
Society are making plans to exhibit
New Idea Farm Equipment,
accompanied by Antique Tractors,
at the Coldwater Community
Days, at the north side of the Park,
Saturday and Sunday, August 6-7.
Exhibits of New Idea Memorabilia
will also be on exhibit. New
exhibitors are welcome.
The New Idea Historic
Preservation Committee was
created by the Mercer County
Historical Society in 2000. Agco
closed the Coldwater New Idea
Facility on December 8, 1999,
just a century after the New Idea
Company began October 18, 1899
at Maria Stein, Ohio. When Agco
announced that they were closing
the New Idea Facility at Coldwater,
Joyce Alig, President of Mercer
County Historical Society, asked
Agco for its Records, as well as the
old New Idea Spreader, which had
been on exhibit at the former New
Idea building. (That spreader, in
its original condition, was the one
which had been painted gold, for
one of their previous anniversary
celebrations.)
In 2000, under the Mercer
County Historical Society,
President Joyce Alig established
the New Idea Historic Preservation
Committee, by inviting former New
Idea Employees, and/or people
interested in the preservation of
New Idea’s history to join this
Committee. This Committee has
met monthly, January through
October, for twelve years, for
making plans for preserving
New Idea Company’s history.
The Committee has recorded
interviews of former New Idea
employees, as well as farmers who
use New Idea equipment. The
Committee has hosted New Idea
Equipment Exhibits, every other
year, at the Coldwater Community
Picnic at the Community Park.
The Committee had extra copies of
New Idea Manuals and therefore,
has held Manual and Poster sales
at Coldwater. The Committee
has hosted New Idea Equipment
Exhibits at Greenville, at their
Power of the Past exhibit at the
Darke County Fairgrounds. Over
Fourth of July weekend, 2010,
this Committee hosted a New Idea
Equipment Exhibit at the Van Wert
Old Fashioned Farmers Days.
For anyone wanting to exhibit
New Idea Equipment at this 2011
Coldwater Picnic, please contact
Joyce Alig by phone or email.
Thank you to Members of the
New Idea Historic Preservation
Committee who have volunteered
to work as a part of the Mercer
County Historical Society in
preserving New Idea’s heritage
this past dozen years. Stop by
this August 6-7 Exhibit and
compliment these Committee
Members for the good work that
Volunteers do for the Mercer
County Historical Society do in
preserving Mercer County’s rich
heritage.
Without the original request
for the Mercer County Historical
Society in 2000, all of these
New Idea Records, Manuals,
Photographs, miniature New Idea
Toys, and original New Idea
Equipment drawings, and the old
New Idea Spreader in its original
condition (except for gold paint)
would have been lost to Mercer
Countians and to Mercer County’s
history. Without the New Idea
Historic Preservation Committee
Volunteers, these New Idea
Equipment programs and exhibits
would not have happened.

Society President Joyce Alig, may

The Butterfy’s Daughter
By: mary Alice monroe
The Amazing Monarch
By: Windle turley
the two books being reviewed have everything to
do with the infamous Monarch Butterfy. Labor Day
in memorial Park is the magical time to search for the
migrating monarchs on their way to their wintering grounds
in mexico. twice we have been blessed with their presence
in the hundreds. “the Amazing monarch” book describes
the whole cycle and has wonderful pages and pages of
pictures. it is a book for the whole family to enjoy. i
personally have checked it out from the library three times
with much enjoyment. it is a great read for understanding
the migration and life cycle of the Monarch butterfy.
“The Butterfy’s Daughter” begins each chapter with
the different stages of the Monarch butterfy’s life cycle.
it is very enlightening and i learned several unknown bits
and pieces of information. For instance, it stated that the
male Monarch knocks the female from fight to get her
amorous attentions. i highly recommend this book for
the Monarch infuence and the interesting storyline and
mexican history.
twenty-four year old luz is raised by her grandmother
believing her absent mother was dead. Just before her
beloved grandmother dies, she tells luz that they need to go
to mexico for important reasons. luz leaves her boyfriend,
Sully, and begins a lone trip to meet her family. Along the
way she meets up with one problem after another but fnds
that there are trusting and wonderful people who help her
as well as she is able to aid them in various ways also. the
book is a tribute to strangers and trust, if not maybe too
much in this day and age. nevertheless, the storyline makes
for good reading. the monarch kept my attention from
beginning to end. if you are a lover of nature and champion
of women, you will enjoy this book as much as i did. it was
recommended by a library patron who knows me well and
whom i look highly to.

Celina Couple Receives Albert Heckler
Award from Cheryl Ann Programs
Louis and Dorothy Hoyng never imagined that they’d be-
come involved with Cheryl Ann Programs.
They were raising three happy, healthy boys in their Celina
home. Louie operated his custom upholstery shop next door,
and Dorothy worked in the high school cafeteria. They were a
typical family.
Then a very atypical thing happened. Their middle son,
Brian, was struck by lightning in 1981 when he was 16. With
that bolt out of the blue, the Hoyngs’ lives changed forever.
The odds of being struck by lightning are one in 280,000,
but the Hoyngs couldn’t afford to spend much time thinking
about their terrible luck. They had a son who needed them
more than he ever had. The first years after Brian’s accident,
which left him with severe disabilities, were very difficult,
they said, as they searched for someone who could help them
help Brian.
Their school district helped as much as it could.Finally, then-
Superintendent Ralph Stelzer recommended a place the Hoyngs
knew about but had never visited as parents: Cheryl Ann.
“Cheryl Ann was the best thing that ever happened to us,”
Louie Hoyng said. “It gave Brian his life back.”
The people of Cheryl Ann helped Brian with his everyday
life. They gave him a place to go and jobs to do. He made new
friends, and enjoyed everything about his experiences there,
up to and including the bus ride out to Mud Pike.
“When he would see Sam Morden (his bus aide) he would
just smile, and the people in Adult Day Services really knew
how to make him laugh,” Dorothy Hoyng said.
It wasn’t long before the Hoyngs were finding ways to re-
pay Cheryl Ann for its help. They were regular volunteers.
Louie Hoyng completed upholstery jobs for the unique
equipment used at Cheryl Ann, and often, said Superintendent
Mike Overman, “Louie would forget to send us a bill.” He
also served a term on the county MRDD board and was the
board president.
For all that, and for their tireless advocacy on behalf of
their son, the Hoyngs received the Albert Heckler Award at
the staff appreciation banquet in March. The award is given
each year to a Cheryl Ann family that exemplifies service and
advocacy.
“The Hoyngs both served as good examples of first-rate
advocates for their son,” Overman said. “They rarely ever
missed a day spending time with him, and they always spoke
up to be sure his needs were being met. They were really spe-
cial parents for Brian, and really good supporters of our pro-
gram.”
Brian Hoyng died in February 2008 at the age of 43. In the
years after the lightning strike he taught his family a lot about
patience, hope, endurance and acceptance. He introduced the
Hoyngs to a world they had only seen from the outside—but it
was a world where they found welcome and acceptance.
“We met some wonderful people during our years at Cheryl
Ann,” Dorothy Hoyng said. “They worked their hearts out
helping us with Brian.”

Stateline Writers Meet
At the April meeting of the Stateline Writer’s Club, members read
profiles they had written about someone, living or dead or make-
believe, and member Eileen Whitsett’s special activity of having mem-
bers combine pictures of particular scenes with a person or people
assigned to them to put into that scene brought interesting results.
Sue Miller and Gretchen Bollenbacher’s proposal for a special
meeting designed to attract new members was described and approved.
Members will be hosted by the Coldwater Public Library in June for
a reading of their best work.
At the next meeting, which will be on Saturday, May 16, mem-
bers will rehearse for their special program in June.
Stateline club members meet the 3rd Saturday of each month at
10 a.m. at the Celina Mercer County Library. Anyone interested in
coming to a meeting or becoming a member is cordially invited to
attend.
Celina Rotary Dog Park Dedicated
BY: BETTY LOU DENNEY/HALL
Opening day at the Celina Rotary Dog Park received
rave revues from the dogs. As the gates opened for the first
time on Tuesday May 12, dogs of all sizes were seen mak-
ing their way to the park to get a chance to run in over 3
acres of wide open spaces of the chain-linked fenced in
area. Small dogs area is an acre and the large dogs have
over 2 acres. The new park, which is one of newest and
biggest things happening in the State Parks around the coun-
try, was made possible due to the efforts of Deborha Borns,
Rotary Club President. Her friend, Darlene Lynskey, is also
working on getting a State Dog Park in her home town of
St. Marys. The two dog lovers along with many volunteers
worked many hours with the help of the State and Craig
Morton, who is the regional manager of Grand Lake St.
Marys. Together they cleared away debris from the previ-
ously unused land. The Park is located at the end of West
Bank Road
Deb Borns saw her idea come to life with the help of the
Celina Rotary Club’s major donation and businesses as well
as individuals who helped with labor and monetary dona-
tions. The idea came to her after visiting another dog park.
At the dedication ceremony Deb thanked many of the
people who made the park possible. Jeff Larmore, Past
Rotary President and Celina City Council Member spoke
as his 150 pound Newfoundland, Bentley checked out the
park. Jeff is also a large contributor to the park in honor of
the recovery of Bentley after he had been lost for several
days. Craig Morton, Regional Manager of State Park Gand
Lake St. Marys and John Hunter, Assistant Chief of the
Division of Parks and Recreation also spoke at the dedica-
tion ceremony. Deb concluded her speech with some wise
lessons that she has learned from her own dogs. A few of
which were: Never leave home without your leach and
your ID. If you stare at someone long enough, you will get
what you want. Last, if it is not wet and sloppy it is not a
real kiss.
One of the many visitors enjoying running free on dedi-
cation day was a lab /poodle mix owned by Dave Hochstien,
professor at Wright State University. He has other dogs at
home but decided to only bring one at a time. He com-
mented that this was the first time his dog had this much
exercise since he got him a year ago.
There are a few small problems to work out with the
park, such as the water faucet would not shut off and there
was a small hole under the fence in the small dog side of
the park, which of course was found by one of the little
furry visitors on dedication day. These problems will be
easily fixed. Memberships ($10) to Fur Ever Friends are
being sold to help with the upkeep of the park. The use of
the park is free to the public. One of the additions they
would like to have is benches added to the park for the
comfort of the owners.
The green stations placed around the fence for the dog
wastes were given at a discount by Florida based company
named DogiPot. Gary Brown, Assistant Operations Man-
ger, heard about the plans for the park and wanted to help
by giving discounts on the pots. The company has all Oxi-
biodegradable bags inside the pots for your dog waste. Gary
flew in from Florida to be a part of the ribbon cutting and
opening of the park. More of their products can be found
by going to: www.propet.org.
If visiting the park remember to follow the rules that are
posted at the entrance. Common sense is your guide such
as:
Dogs should have their current shots
The park has little dog and big dog sections, keep
dogs in their own spaces.
Don’t leave dog unattended
Do not bring a dog that shows aggressive behavior
Keep small children under close supervision
Clean up after your own dog
Never bring a dog to the park that has an illness.
These are just a few precautions to remember. Check
the rules before entering the park and you and your dog
will have a great time The Park is open daylight to dark
everyday.

Brad Chuck Bev
Have you ever wondered
if you have something laying
around your home that could
be worth thousands or even
millions of dollars? When was
the last time you even looked
in your closet, basement or attic
to see what type of items are
collecting dust? Well, now is
the time to begin your hunt,
because the Premiere Estate
Buyers group is coming to
Celina in search of the most rare
antiques, collectibles and even
coins from around the world.
The PEB has recently
uncovered some rare estate
pieces that might have been
hiding in a closet or attic near
you. An 1894 Morgan silver
dollar sold for a whopping
$15,000! A frst edition Batman
and Robin comic book went for
over $14,000! A local couple
even brought in an old humidor
from their parents estate that
sold for almost $60,000.
What kind of collectibles
will be found during our trip?
You or your next-door neighbor
just might be the next one to
fnd a jackpot in the attic. Start
digging now and be ready to
have some fun and make some
money.
During this event at the
Romers Westlake Lodge, our
estate experts are hoping to see
items such as coins and paper
currency issued prior to 1965
and gold items including class
rings, mismatched earrings,
broken necklaces, gold coins
and bullion. Not to mention
all musical instruments are
extremely sought after right
now around the world. Antique
and coin enthusiasts are very
serious about their hobby—so
serious that they will pay a lot
of money for the items that
they are looking for. Nearly
all guitars, war memorabilia,
pocket watches, comic books,
paintings, and even paper
currency from the early 20th
century and later are sought
after by collectors. The PEB is
a place where anyone in your
community can connect with
collectors from around the
globe. Our experts make offers
on your items based on what
other collectors are willing to
pay. When you decide to sell,
you get paid on the spot and
the PEB sends the item to the
collector at their expense.
Keep an open mind when
going through your attics,
basements, garages and closets.
You could come across the next
big fnd. Whether you have an
old Gibson guitar, a toy Tonka
truck, pocket watch, or just a
class ring from high school,
bring it down to the show and
fnd out what it’s worth. You
could be paid right on the spot
for it. Don’t have a rare painting
or signed letter by George
Washington? No problem—
the PEB even purchases gold
items. If you have mismatched
earrings, a broken necklace, or
even costume jewelry, we have
the resources to buy them at
current market prices. Come
on down to one of the biggest
events you will attend this year!
Our show runs Tuesday thru
Friday, 9am-6pm and Saturday
9am-4pm, July 26 – July 30
Our event will be held at:

The 6th stop of the 2011
Colavita-Zipp time trial series
will take place the morning of
August 7 in Celina starting and
fnishing at Lakeshore Park and
will follow a course of 25 miles
around the lake.
The series is an amateur
bicycle race series where riders
start and race alone against the
clock and are awarded based
on fnish times in various
experience, age and bicycle type
classes. In the past 5 years the
series has grown into the largest
in the Midwest attracting riders
of all experience types. With
the addition of cash prizes and
medals at each event, in addition
to individual and team season
championships, the depth of the
competition has also increased.
The races are open to everyone
with a bicycle.
The addition of 200 bike
racers from all over the Midwest
will aid the Grand Lake region
as some racers will arrive as
early as Friday evening staying
in local hotels and taking in
local attractions.
The race was held last year
in June and was an huge hit. “A
time trial with a view” was one
riders reaction. The course is
unique in that most courses are
out and back in rural areas while
this one includes a complete
clockwise loop of Grand Lake.
The event is primarily
sponsored by Reese-Campbell
General Contractors/
Construction Managers of
Cinncinati and their president
Pete Chronis. Pete is an avid
cyclist and cycling supporter
in addition to a lake property
owner. Another supporter
of this event is Deb Borns of
Coldwell Banker Lakeshore
Real Estate in Celina , Deb is
a strong supporter of the Grand
Lake Region.

A traffc stop, coupled
with complaints and other
information from the
neighborhood led the Celina
Police Department to the
service of a search warrant at a
home located in the 300 block
of S. Brandon Ave. Offcers
arrived at the home at 18:16 hrs
Thursday evening and found
three subjects inside. Once the
suspects were secured offcers
began searching the home. A
substantial amount of heroin
was seized from the home,
along with nearly $10,000 in
cash that was found with the
drug.
The single family home,
located at 306 S. Brandon
Ave, had been the subject
of several complaints from
residents of the older middle
class neighborhood. Many
groups of neighbors gathered
and watched as Celina Police
offcers completed the 2 ½
hour search of the home. The
owner of the home, Benjamin
W. Cordier, was not at home
at the time the warrant was
served. One male subject taken
into custody lists his address
as the home in question, but
the other male and the female,
both of whom were found to
have drugs in their possession,
claimed they were visiting the
residence. All three suspects
from the home are being held
in the Mercer County Jail on a
bond of $250,000 each.
Two male suspects from the
traffc stop are also being held.
The driver of the vehicle faces
multiple suspension violations
and is being held on a $25,000
bond. The passenger, who
was found to be in possession
of heroin, is being held on
a $100,000 bond. Celina
Offcers were assisted at the
traffc stop by members of
the Mercer County Sheriff’s
Offce. Formal charges are
expected to be fled against all
suspects through the Mercer
County Prosecutor’s Offce.
The names of the suspects are
being withheld until that time.
The Celina Police
Department made the largest
heroin seizure in Mercer
County last January when a
suspect being arrested for the
Auglaize County Sheriff’s
Offce was found with 9.7
grams of heroin. The total
amount of heroin found under
the service of this warrant is
estimated at this time to equal or
exceed that amount. The exact
volume will be determined
through lab analysis.

larry Goins, Director
of Personal lines, is pleased
to announce that Danielle
Schmackers has joined the
celina insurance Group.
Danielle will begin working in
the Personal lines Department.
Danielle enters celina
insurance with a solid
professional background. She
started her career as a marketing
coordinator and most recently
was a licensed real estate agent.
Danielle is a graduate of Wright
State university, where she
earned a B.S. in marketing.
Goins comments, “Danielle’s
real estate background and
marketing experience are a
winning combination for her
success in this new role. She
has great potential, and i am
confdent Danielle will make a
signifcant contribution to the
organization.”
She currently resides in
chickasaw, with her husband,
Joe, and their son, Andrew.
Founded in 1914, celina
insurance Group is a collection
of mutual property and casualty
insurance companies. celina
underwrites auto, non-standard
auto, farm, home, commercial
autoand property insurance, as
well as umbrella and casualty

Celina Insurance welcomes
Danielle Schmackers
in 1984 the petitioned
improvement was approved
by the Board of mercer county
commissioners at a total cost of
$701,372.50. At that time oDnr
participated with up-front funds
as part of the re-construction
of the ditch (in the amount of
$462,906), however oDnr was
not put on maintenance. Since
that time oDnr has not paid any
maintenance costs through the
offcial assessment process. ODNR
to their credit has signifcantly
contributed to improvements to
the ditch of their own volition. in
order to equitably maintain Beaver
creek in the future, oDnr agreed
to be added to the maintenance
schedule as a beneftting party
for the state owned property that
they have in the Beaver creek
watershed.
this agreement will insure
that as part of the Beaver creek
watershed, the oDnr will in
perpetuity, pay ditch maintenance
as any other beneftting property
owners already do in the
watershed. Further, this agreement
insures an equitable distribution
of the maintenance costs to the
beneftting parties in the watershed
and will eliminate any future need
for the county engineer and / or
Board of county commissioners
to request maintenance funds for
Beaver creek, as oDnr will now
be part of the maintenance base of
assessment. “the ohio Department
of natural resources is pleased to
have worked with local offcials on
reaching a resolution that benefts
the people and environment of
mercer county,” said Glen cobb,
oDnr Deputy Director and
former Grand lake St. marys Park
manager.
this agreement would not
have been completed were it not
for the efforts and cooperation
of the mercer county engineer
Jim Wiechart, Amy ikerd with
the mercer county Prosecutor’s
Offce, the Mercer County Board
of Commissioners, Offcials at

David mustine and chief legal
counsel William r. Damschroder,
Administrator of ohio Department
of Agriculture Jim Zehringer and

roSSBurG, oh (July
16) -- Everything was
going Sammy Swindell’s
way on Saturday night in
the $50,000-to-win Kings
Royal at Eldora Speedway
... until the final corner.
Swindell had the World of
Outlaws Sprint Car Series
crown jewel event locked
up when suddenly his right
rear tire went down as he
exited Turn 4 en route to
the checkered flag. The
huge crowd was stunned
as it watched Tyler Walker
shoot past a helpless
Swindell to win. Earlier in
the night Randy Hannagan
got by early race leader
Caled Helms to take the
NRA (National Racing
Alliance) Sprint Invader
main event.
After winning his heat
to land on the pole for the
main event, then lead 39
of the 40 laps, Swindell
managed to salvage second
in the Big Game Treestands
Maxim with Paul McMahan
in third in the HR Cattle/
Roth Motorsports Maxim,
but it was little solace to
the three-time World of
Outlaws champion from
Germantown, Tenn.
A wild finish led to an
extremely wild post-race
celebration. Walker crossed
the scale to officially be
declared the winner and was
overcome with jubilance.
He eventually made his
way to victory lane where
he was crowned by Earl
Baltes, who built Eldora
Speedway in 1954 and
created the Kings Royal in
1984.
“I’ve lost so many in
the last turn,” said Walker,
of Los Angeles, Calif. “I
was giving it about half
throttle there at the end
because I knew the tires
were getting low. It just
feels really good to be on
the other side of that kind
of deal. I’ve lost a lot of
races like that so I know
how it feels to be sitting
there watching someone
else takes the checkers. This
is the biggest win of my
career by far and I couldn’t
have done it without the car
owners and team that I have
behind me.”
Sweetening the deal
for Walker was that the
race fell on his birthday.
The driver of the Keen-
owned Hunter Truck Sales/
Peterbilt Maxim started the
main event on the outside
of the front row and was
in command of second
throughout the night.
Walker was trying to
run down Swindell when
a scary multi-car crash in
Turns 1 and 2 on Lap 11
sent Ed Lynch Jr. in a flip
after making hard contact
with Joey Saldana’s Kasey
Kahne Racing machine.
Lynch walked away
unharmed but Saldana
was transported with what
appeared to be an injured
arm to a local hospital for
observation. (For updates
on Saldana when available,
go to worldofoutlaws.com)
When the race got back
under way, the intensity
level raised with each
passing lap. A late caution
bunched the field one final
time. Sensing tire wear
could be a factor, McMahan
did all he could to ensure
his tires would last through
to the end.
“I could see the tires
were wearing pretty good
so I tried to just ease off and
maintain as best I could,”
said McMahan, who made
it back-to-back third-place
finishes on the weekend.
“We’re happy with another
top-5 finish. Dennis and
Theresa Roth really make
this possible and I really
owe them a lot for keeping
me out here along with
Kasey Kahne.”
The last lap show stopper
capped off an exciting
evening of racing that saw
2010 World of Outlaws
champion Jason Meyers and
Walker stuns huge Kings Royal
crowd with last lap win
ROSSBURG, OH (July 15)
-- Tim Shaffer had a near-
ly unbeatable car for most of
the Knight Before the Kings
Royal Friday at famed Eldora
Speedway. In the fnal World of
Outlaws Sprint Car Series event
before the huge $50,000-to-win
Kings Royal, Shaffer started
from the pole, slid backwards
then dueled with Jason Meyers
until Shaffer fnally pulled
away down the stretch. In the
companion Jimmy Johnston
Memorial Classic for the NRA
(National Racing Alliance)
Sprint Invaders, David Gravel
ran down early race leader Jared
Hortsman to capture the title.
Shaffer, of Aliquippa, Pa.,
captured the dash and worked
around Meyers, the defend-
ing World of Outlaws cham-
pion, on Lap 15 of the 30-lap
A-main. The two drivers then
thrilled the packed grandstands
with a daring and breathtaking

NOT MUCH ABOUT
SPORTS
There does not seem to be
much these days that does not
have a political implication and
might offend someone. I took
advantage of the frst day the
conservation folks permitted
me to mow my crop of warm
weather grasses which this year
had its share of wild fowers and
even more weeds. I receive an
annual check from the govern-
ment to let whatever grows on
a couple acres and a slightly
larger check to nurture sev-
eral hundred young trees on a
couple other acres. These acres
were productive cropland for
well over a hundred years, and
now I am getting public dollars
for stopping that process. I
assume that aggravates some
folks but for a hundred-plus
years, my little patch and other
farm land in the area looked
a little different than it does
today. A few decades ago all
the farms were divided into
fenced in plots to manage the
livestock. The fences resulted
in several feet on each side
that could not be plowed or
cultivated. There existed thou-
sands of feet of fence rows of
wild grasses about six feet wide
all over our area. Livestock
is now housed indoors, not in
the felds. There is no need
for fences and thus no fence
rows. Fence rows sheltered
rabbits, birds, and other wild-
life. They may have been a fac-
tor in preventing wind erosion
and they might have helped
keep manure nutrients on the
land rather than the ditches.
I was told my woolly grass-
es and weeds are actually a
retro fence row. During this
annual mowing, I saw rabbits
old enough to avoid me and
the dog, bright yellow fnches,
red winged black birds, and
large violet fowers for The
Bride. She acted as happy
with these as with the store
bought roses I purchase, and
the big violet ones were free.
Perhaps some will say the gov-
ernment should not be subsidiz-
ing my trees, grasses, fowers
and weeds, but I am receiving
a great, great, great deal less
than the petroleum industry
moguls and apparently I pay
more tax than some of them.
I would suggest two val-
ues taught by participation in
sports are aggression and com-
promise. In basketball the guy
who gets there frst is the one
who usually gets the rebound.
If you hesitate for a fraction
of a section, you will not be
frst. If you are too polite to
elbow in for the frst position or
worry about stepping on toes,
you will not get the rebound.
Waiting to see what the other
guy does frst will not work.
Aggression is key in rebound-
ing, but compromise is more
important in team victories.
Every player wants to see the
box score with his name and
big numbers. There is only
one ball on the court and many
guys just hoping to get in the
game. Being a member of
a winning team means almost
everybody is willing to com-
promise personal goals for one
overriding team goal, victory.
I would suspect most of our
politicians, TV commentators,
and other social commentators
play some type of ball some-
time, but I guess very few were
on real winning teams. We
have a bunch of people suppos-
edly leading our country who
know how to be aggressive,
but never knew or forgot that
in government leadership, like
basketball and marriage, com-
promise is vital for success.

Fort Recovery State Museum News July 2011
Yeah for the Archaeology
Successes at Fort Recovery!
Making Informed Decisions!
Most of you know that the Ball
State University Archaeologists
and the students who participated
in the Ball State Archaeology
Field School made some exciting
discoveries. They are quite certain
they uncovered a good section of
the original fort wall running East-
West.
The intention of the Historical
Society is to mark that site in
some way that visitors can get a
good idea of what was found and
where! What a great event this
was for us. We appreciate the
excellent coverage by the local
newspapers: The Daily Standard,
The Commercial Review and the
Mercer County Chronicle, and
radio station – WPGW of Portland.
We had over 200 visitors who
responded to the invitation to see
the discoveries for themselves.
A special Thank You to
archaeologist, Chris Keller and
two Ball State University students,
Tyler Wolford and Dane Rowles,
who made themselves available
to the public long after the regular
work day was over! Also, realize
that none of this would have
happened had it not been for the
American Battlefeld Preservation
Grant. What a great “fnd” as a
result of that, and what better way
to demonstrate the importance of
informed decision-making when
it comes to use of the battlefeld
grounds. Thank goodness this
particular area had never been
made into a parking lot. And now
we know!
Pie Auction – A Success!
Thank YOU Bakers and Buyers!
And Judges!
Nineteen Pie-Bakers brought
their best (24 total pies) for the
Jubilee Pie Auction, with the result
that over $1000 was generated
from generous buyers! Thank
you to bakers - Hilda Alig, James
Carpenter, Pat Diller, Joan Kaiser,
Nancy Knapke, Helen LeFevre,
*Linda Lennartz, Sharon Link,
Karlie Niekamp, Judy Post, *Carol
Ranly, Lisa Roessner, Sharon Scott,
Ann Staugler, Irene Stone, Madison
Valentine, Denise Weitzel, Sharon
Zehringer, and Judge *Mary Pat
Zitter. *Winners!
AND to the Pie Buyers: Carl
Link, Neil Diller, Cy LeFevre,
Jim Zehringer, Glenn Florence,
Jan Lamm, Mary Niekamp, Jan
Hickerson, and Carl Koesters!
Thank YOU!
AND to the Pie Judges: Jim
Coons (WCSM), Virginia Cline
(Commercial Review), and Roger
Broerman (FR Mayor) Thank
YOU. A tough job but someone
has to do it!
Thank YOU Fort Recovery
Foundation
In its disbursements for 2011,
the Fort Recovery Foundation
has given the museum $1000 to
help offset the expense of the new
display cabinets in the museum
basement. These attractive cabinets
(made by Home Idea Center) house
the battle/fort artifacts found here!
Thank you to the FR Foundation
and all who support it!
October One-Of-A-Kind
Auction
The October Auction Committee
is busy planning for the fall event.
The theme is “Jungle Fever!” If
you have any items you would like
to contribute to the auction (new/
antique/gently used) please call the
museum (375-4649), or just drop
it off there. The auction booklet
is put together in advance, so the
auction / raffe items are welcome
asap. Also if you would like to help
with the auction, just call! You
would be so welcome!
2011 Patrons – The Museum
Couldn’t Survive Without YOU
Words can’t express the
appreciation the Museum Trustees,
the Historical Society and really
the whole community of Fort
Recovery have for those of you
who have become Patrons of the
museum. Because of you, we can
not only keep open the doors of the
museum, we can offer educational
speakers and family events, and
keep improving displays and
exhibits.
We are also proud that the
visitors who come here ask about
the restaurants, the shops and other
places to go here. We’re glad the
museum is good for Fort Recovery.
Therefore this is really a win-win-
win situation for all of us. But you
patrons are the catalyst that allows
this to happen.
The sheet of 2011 patrons is
attached. If your name should be
on it, and it is not, please let us
know asap. We are not perfect
(and we hate that), and we do
want to publicly acknowledge
ALL patrons so let me know if
we have overlooked anyone on the
2011 list!
And speaking of patrons, from
last year to this year, we have been
saddened by the loss of Bertha
Sanderell, George Bihn, Jim Bubp
and Richard Meiring. What good
people! Some of their spirit lives
on through their support to our
museum, and that is passed on each
day to those who visit here and
partake in the special events which
their contributions helped fund.
Burial/Monument Crypt/
Samuel McDowell
In 1851, boys playing along
the Wabash river bank found
some human bones and reported
their fndings. The people of Fort
Recovery started a search and
found many of the skeletons of
the people that died in the bloody
battle of 1791 and the Battle of
Fort Recovery in 1794. Many
of the bones were found to be
well preserved and showed where
tomahawks and scalping knives
had been used.
After meeting with people
from many neighboring states, a
memorial celebration was planned
for September 10, 1851. At that
time Fort Recovery was a very
small town of only 200 citizens. On
the day of the celebration, called
Bone Burying Day, an estimated
5,000 visitors attended! Thirteen
caskets were used to carry the
bones; one casket to represent each
state in the union at that time. An
additional large chest was needed
to hold the remaining skeletons.
The burial took place in one large
grave at Milligan Cemetery,(the
oldest cemetery in Mercer County
and now called Pioneer Cemetery).
The spot was marked by a low
circular mound of earth and stones.
Nearby was the grave of a 1791
and 1794 comrade (and local
hero), Samuel McDowell (whose
descendents still live in this area.)
The remains of these soldiers
stayed in Pioneer Cemetery until
1891 when, to commemorate the
centennial of the St. Clair Battle,
they were removed to Memorial
Park. They lay in state for three
days and were then buried on that
site. When the The Fort Recovery
Monument, a national memorial,
was erected in 1912, the remains
of the slain soldiers were, once and
for all time, laid to rest in a crypt in
the foundation of the monument.

toni Slusser and laura Bruns,
previous and current Deputy
Directors of mercer county
Board of elections, were the guest
speakers at the June 7 meeting.
Slusser said that in the even
years there are elections of county,
state, and federal offcials, and in
the odd years there are elections
of offcials at the local levels. The
year of a presidential election is
the smallest and easiest. this year
there will be elections for village
council members and mayors.
this is the largest election with
two trustees on the ballot for each
of the 14 townships in the county.
there are seven villages in the
county electing school board
members and also the mercer
county education center.
At the primary election we
nominate candidates and in
november we elect the leaders
in charge. Slusser said at the
primary there is the lowest turnout,
but it is the most important part
of the election process. She
explained the procedures required
to change party affliation at the
primary elections. At the general
elections, one can vote for any
party. to run for auditor or
treasurer, one has to be 18 years
of age with no college education
necessary. Bruns had maps of
the county showing political
subdivisions, school districts, etc.
they need and use lots of maps
at the board. mercer county is in
two congressional districts. With
the 2010 census, ohio will lose
two districts. Where one lives
(address) determines where he
votes. there are two of each party
on the Board of elections. hand-
outs consisting of various voting
information were available.
mandy Wendel and erica
Roehm from Briarwood Village
were the guest speakers at the June
14 meeting. Briarwood Village is
a nursing care home and assisted
living center located in coldwater.
they currently have 112 nursing
home beds for long term care
and for short term rehabilitation
services, and also have 48
independent and assisted living
rooms located in the village.
Briarwood employs 235
people and has approximately 100
volunteers. Some of the services
provided in the rehabilitation
area includes physical therapy,
occupational therapy, and speech
therapy. the average stay for
these rehabilitative services is 22
days. Briarwood Village has a
designated area for each type of
service. Briarwood provides 24
hour rn nursing care throughout
the facility. however, they are
not licensed to provide breathing
ventilator services. the facility
takes a home life approach on
nursing care vs. the institutionalized
model that was used in the past.
this approach makes the residents
feel more like they are at home
and not in an institution.
Dennis Wendel was the guest
speaker at the June 21 meeting.
he spoke about his experience
with the ronald mcDonald
house. Denny’s son tyler was
born last november 30. After
being brought home, he became
extremely ill by not being
able to keep food down. he
was brought to the area hospital
and immediately transferred to
children’s hospital in Dayton.
there he underwent surgery for
a twisted small intestine. he was
placed in the mic unit there.
the ronald mcDonald house is
across the street from children’s
hospital. While tyler was in
that hospital for 30 days, his
parents had a room at the ronald
mcDonald house. the rooms
there consisted of two single beds
and private bath. they were
offered three meals a day. Denny
said this was a remarkable place
to stay, and they also met families
in similar situations. everything
there was free of charge, however,
they do take donations. At the
end of each day they sign out
and if wanting to stay on, sign
up for the next day. Denny and
his wife melissa have three other
daughters. Different family
members did come to stay.
the ronald mcDonald house
does have some paid employees
including a director and a
security guard. they also have
some volunteers. everyone who
stays there is expected to keep
their room clean and maintain
supplies. he estimates there are
approximately 20/25 rooms at
this facility. Denny said tyler is
now six months old, growing and
doing great.

show for the fans.
“Jason and i raced each
other clean and that’s what
made it great,” said Shaffer,
who won a World of outlaws
race at eldora for the third
time in his career and the frst
time since 2000. “the top line
was the place to be and we
could get such a run going up
there. We were good both on
and off the cushion and we
could move around a lot so
that helps us tremendously.
tomorrow night is a different
race and we could be racing or
we could be sitting but we feel
like we have a strong car for
that big pay day.”
meyers was chasing
his second win of the 2011
campaign in the DDni/
Allstar Performance KPc
and appeared to be the only
sprinter capable of keeping
up with Shaffer, the winner of
the 50th Goodyear Knoxville
nationals. With a couple of
well timed slide jobs, meyers
was in the heat of it right to
the end.
“it’s been one of those
years,” said meyers, when ref-
erencing a pass he made for
the lead right as the yellow fag
few for an incident involving
the #7k of Kyle Sauder and
#49 of Brad Sweet. “right
as we get the lead the yellow
comes out, which put us back
to second. On the fip side,
that was probably the best car
i have had here at eldora in
three years. my guys put a
great car under me tonight. it
was fast and comfortable all
night. overall it was a good
points night for us. We’ve
got a good car to come back
here with tomorrow night and
hopefully avoid those yellow
fags.”
With his runner-up fnish,
meyers regained the series
points lead over four-time
champion Donny Schatz,
who fnished 10th in the
StP/Armor All/chevrolet.
Paul mcmahan continued his
string of top-5 fnishes with
a 3rd-place run as quick-
timer Joey Saldana and Steve
Kinser rounded out the top
Five. Craig Dollansky, a fve-
time winner this season from
elk river, minn., overcame a
wreck in the frst heat to fn-
ish eighth in the A-main and
win the KSe hard charger
Award.
A scary moment of the
evening came in the third heat
when the #5W of lucas Wolfe
caught fre in turn two as the
checkered fag waved. The
2008 Kevin Gobrecht rookie
of the year hustled out of the
fames with what appeared to
be only a minor burn on his
hand, but parked his car for
the evening.
“i’m alright,” said Wolfe,
of mechanicsburg, Pa. “Just
a scary ordeal, but it’s rac-
ing and those kinds of things
happen.”
hortsman appeared to the
be driver to beat in the nrA
fnale, as his smooth run net-
ted him a commanding lead of
the feld for much of the 25 lap
distance. lap by lap, young
David Gravel began cutting
into that lead and then with a
burst of speed, shot by to take
his frst-ever Eldora victory.
A disappointed hortman
came across the line in the
runner-up slot, while rany
hannagan, chad Kemenah
and Butch Schroeder com-
pleted the top fve.

third generation driver
caleb helms looked to be
the driver to beat in the nrA
portion of the Kings royal and
used a smooth run to take an
early and commanding lead.
hannagan broke free from
the pack to take runner-up
honors about midway into
the distance, but with a full
straightaway lead, the helms
challenge seemed impossible.
With a non-stop pace
ensuing, hannagan took full
advantage of lapped traffc
which affected helms’
pace. With a handful of laps
remaining, hannagan shot by
helms to take the lead and
eventual victory.
And understandably dejected
Helms fnished second, with
the previous night’s winner,
David Gravel, moving from
17th to take home third. chad
Kemenah and Dustin Daggett
completed the top fve.

organizers are expecting
over 100 participants in
the “Poker run” August 6
in rockford in memory of
Keith laFountain ii who died
in a work-related accident
last August. the run will
beneft State of the Heart
hospice’s camp BeArable
for grieving youth.
“Donations have come in
as well as sponsors and gift
certifcates,” said Yvonne
Patch who along with her
husband roger is in charge
of the event. Keith was their
son. Flyers have been placed
in area communities and
special t shirts have been
ordered.
the Poker run will start
at 1 p.m. at the American
legion in rockford.
registration begins at noon.
the run is for motorcycles
and automobiles, Patch
explained. “it is open to
anyone who wants to
participate,” she added.
cost to participate is $10.
Both roger and yvonne
attended a Growing through
Grief support meeting held
by State of the heart to help
them deal with the loss of
Keith. Grief support is an
important part of the care
provided by State of the
heart. they learned of
camp BeArable while in
the support group. “When
we heard about the camp,
we immediately thought that
it would be a great project
to help. We had wanted to
do something in memory of
Keith and felt State of the
heart and the camp would
be a great beneft event.”
She added, “When we
fnished the support group,
we realized how helpful it
had been and how important
it is to support hospice and
its causes,” Patch said. “the
meetings were so helpful.
i encourage others i know
who are dealing with grief to
attend them.”
camp BeArable will
be held July 22-24 at the
Spiritual center of maria
Stein. this is the eleventh
year for the camp which is
free and is for children ages
six to 15 who are grieving
the loss of someone they
loved. children need not
have any association with
hospice care. State of the
heart cares for families and
patients in eastern indiana
and western ohio who are
confronting a life limiting
illness.
in addition to the run,
there will be a 50/50 raffe
and a silent auction. At the
end of the ride, around 6
p.m., there will be a band
performing at the American
legion. Also, food will
be available all day at the
legion. She said they are
still seeking door prizes and
gift certifcates to give away
the day of the ride
“Putting together this
run has been a rewarding
experience,” Patch stated.
“it has been good for us
both and it is helping camp
BEARable.” Such benefts
enable State of the heart
to conduct the camp free
of charge. About 50 youth
attend each year. For more
information about the run,
contact yvonne Patch at
419-363-2541.
