NOW OPEN SUNDAYS
By Skeet Wolters
Larry Wolf introduced Jill
Bowers, of St. Marys, as the
guest speaker at the Coldwater
Kiwanis September 26 meeting.
Jill serves as a Volunteer Eagle
Spotter for the Ohio Department
of Natural Recourses. This
preceded a training session in
1996 to become eligible for
this position. Her first year as
volunteer, the nesting eagles
failed, meaning the young did
not hatch. In 1997, two eaglets
hatched. One fell from the nest
and was transferred to the Glen
Helen Raptor Center in Yellow
Springs for rehabilitation. It
recovered and was returned
to the nest and was accepted
by the adult eagles. Mercer
County has three eagle nest
sites including a new one
located north of Mercer.
Jill shared that eagles have
made a miraculous come back
with 62 of the 88 counties in
Ohio having at least one eagle
nest. Much of this is credited
to the many volunteers who
monitored the eagle nests
and obtained much valuable
information for the Ohio
Division of Wildlife. Jill is
passionate about all things
concerning eagles. Eagles
are monitored by volunteers
from January, when they begin
building their nests, until July
when the young fledge the
nest.
Mercer County eagles
lay 1-3 eggs near the end of
February or early March. The
eggs are incubated for 35 days
by the male and female adults
before they hatch. Eagles eat
fish, which they catch with
their talons, or dead fish and
animals. Because our waters
freeze, eagles migrate south in
the winter and return in January
to add to their nests, which can
become as large as 9 feet in
diameter. On June 28, 2007,
the Interior Department took
the American bald eagle off the
Endangered Species List. The
bald eagle is still protected by
the Migratory Bird Treaty act.
Kiwanis is a global
organization of volunteers
dedicated to changing the world
one child and one community
at a time. Coldwater has a
strong, well-organized group of
dedicated members that meet
once a week, which includes
lunch, a short meeting, and
a guest speaker. They are
accepting new members and
welcome all interested persons
to contact a member for more
information.

Joseph Grilliot, C.PP.S.,
was ordained to the
priesthood on September 24,
2011, in the Chapel of the
Assumption at St. Charles
Center, the motherhouse
of the Missionaries of the
Precious Blood (C.PP.S.) in
Carthagena, Ohio.
“Keep always before your
eyes the example of the Good
Shepherd, who came not to
be served but to serve, who
came to seek out those who
are lost,” said Bishop Joseph
Charron, C.PP.S., who
presided at the ordination, in
his homily. “My prayer for
you, Joe, on your ordination
day, is that all your wonderful
thoughts and desires (about
the consecrated life) will be
fulfilled.”
The chapel was filled to
its capacity with Fr. Grilliot’s
family, friends, Missionaries
of the Precious Blood and
their lay associates, sisters
and others in the Precious
Blood family.
Fr. Grilliot was ordained
a deacon in January, and has
spent the months since then in
ministry at St. Agnes Church
in Los Angeles, Calif. He
will now return to St. Agnes,
where he has been appointed
associate pastor.
A native of Versailles,
Ohio, he is the son of John
and Louise Grilliot. Fr.
Grilliot celebrated a Mass
of Thanksgiving at his home
parish, St. Denis in Versailles
on September 25.
He said he was profoundly
grateful for the support he
received from family, friends
and the Precious Blood
Community on his vocation
journey.
“I can only begin to express
how grateful I am. I have been
blessed beyond words,” he
said during an announcement
at the conclusion of the Mass
of ordination. “After such a
long journey, with so many
challenges, I am most grateful
to my family for their love for
me and to the Precious Blood
Community for the way
they’ve shaped me.”
A University of
Toledo graduate, he was
studying engineering as an
undergraduate when he one
day realized he was in the
wrong major. The next day,
he said, he changed his major
to religious studies. After his
graduation from UT in 2004
with a bachelor’s degree
in philosophy, he entered
initial formation with the
Missionaries of the Precious
Blood in 2005. During
special formation, he was
assigned to Sts. Peter and
Paul Church in Ottawa, Ohio.
He earned a master of divinity
degree earlier this year from
Catholic Theological Union
in Chicago.

Kerns GM Center
teams up with Coldwater
Youth Soccer to help raise
thousands of dollars for
youth soccer program
Celina, Sep. 12,
2011 – In the spirit of
teamwork taught by
youth sports, Kerns GM
Center is teaming up with
Coldwater Youth Soccer
to provide their players
and coaches with soccer
kits filled with equipment
bags, soccer balls, sport
cones, scrimmage vests
and t-shirts, a sponsorship
check and an opportunity
to help them raise funds.
Coldwater Youth
Soccer will have the
opportunity to raise as
much as $10,000 through
a fundraising opportunity
where one lucky recipient
will win his or her choice
of a 2011 Chevrolet
Equinox or Cruze. Another
lucky winner will receive
a Home Entertainment
Package.
Kerns GM Center
and other Dayton-area
Chevrolet dealerships are
donating these prizes to
participating leagues in
the area. One-hundred
percent of the proceeds
collected from the
fundraiser go directly to
the leagues. The funds
may be used in any way
the league chooses.
A one-time sponsorship
check will be presented
by Kerns GM Center
to Coldwater Youth
Soccer. The league also
will have an opportunity
to raise additional funds
for their use as part of
a Chevy Youth Soccer
Fundraiser. Sponsored
leagues across the country
will each receive 2,000
fundraiser entry tickets to
distribute for a suggested
donation, and the league
will keep 100% of the
proceeds raised. At the
end of the fundraiser,
there will be four winners
of a Chevy Equinox or
Chevy Cruze vehicle of
choice (up to $24,995
in value), and in each
participating market there
will be a secondary prize
of a home entertainment
center valued at $1,000.
Some leagues plan
to grant scholarships
to families who cannot
afford to enroll their
children in the league,
while others will use the
funds to improve fields
and equipment.
“We are proud to be
able to help the kids in our
community by donating
equipment and giving
them the opportunity to
raise much-needed funds
for their league. We are
excited to be part of
the effort this year, and
anticipate a fun-filled
season with Coldwater
Youth Soccer” said Andy
Kremer, Consultant for
Kerns GM Center.

Member Kitti Tolles’
program for the September
Stateline Writers Club
meeting began with members
playing art critics as they
were to examine the pictures
Tolles had on display and
write a short essay about
what they brought to mind,
using whatever slant or
perspective was most
comfortable for them. Tolles
brought in some of her own
original art work for this
exercise.
They were told to close
their eyes and breathe deeply,
then to open to their inner
selves and let the words flow
onto the paper. “And have
fun!” Tolles emphasized.
After everyone wrote and
read their pieces, she traded
their work for a picture of
hers of their choice. “What I
found fun,” Tolles said, “was
that one of our member’s
husbands who normally
doesn’t participate joined in
on this exercise.” Program
Director Eileen Whitsett
said that Tolles “presented
a creative and interesting
program, and it will for sure
go down in our memories as
unique.”
The special committee of
Tolles, Ron Aragon, Martha
Schoen and Whitsett set up
to discuss using some of the
extra money in the treasury
presented information on
both a $100 book scholarship
and a first, second and third
place Auglaize and Mercer
County high school writing
contest totaling $150. Both
projects will move forward
following approval of
members and input from high
school teachers. Whitsett
made a motion that $100 be
left in the treasury after these
two projects were funded,
and President Alain Rion
seconded. Margaret Goodwin
then made a donation toward
this, and Whitsett said she
would cover the rest. The
committee will finalize plans
and make a report at the next
Stateline meeting.
Everyone then read their
current assignment pieces
about how their perspectives
have changed in the last five
years, and Nancy Wreede
came up with the October
assignment to “write in
longhand letters to your
grandchildren, even the
unborn ones.” This idea was
amended to include writing
to a present or future child
as well and that the letter did
not have to be handwritten.
The Club next meets on
Saturday, October 15, at 10
a.m. at the Celina Mercer
County Library. Meetings
are held at the library on
the third Saturday at 10 a.m.
Interested persons are invited
and encouraged to attend. For
more information, contact
Gretchen Bollenbacher at
419-363-2692 or fgboll@

Special September program
has members breathing
deeply, having fun
The autumn is a most
wonderful season, whether
for harvesting crops,
canning the last of the
garden fruits and vegetables,
raking leaves, preparing for
Halloween, or taking a walk
in the cool weather. Hunting
is a highlight of this season
for sportsmen.
One Senior Citizen told
me that history is boring! I
knew he was a hunter so
I asked him if hunting
had changed since he was
young. He proceeded to
tell me about the abundance
of wildlife when he was a
young hunter. He bragged
me about the biggest buck
he had ever shot. He topped
his comments with the
statement, “Someone should
write these stories down;
no one can hunt like that
anymore!”
I could not resist it; I had
to tell him that he just told
me his family’s History of
Hunting! I suggested that
the History of Hunting is not
boring to him. He laughed
and said that I was right.
Every person has his own
likes and dislikes when it
comes to remembering what
was important to him in his
past history.
The History of Hunting
began in Mercer County, at
least nine thousand years
ago. The prehistoric Elk
bones which were found
on Cranberry Prairie on
the Stucke Farm by Ron
Schwieterman in 1981,
yielded a radiocarbon date
of over 9000 years. The
prehistoric Elk had a hole
punched through the left
scapula, which shows no
evidence of healing. The
Elk probably was wounded
by an Early Archaic Indian,
wandered into the Cranberry
Prairie site, and died. The
Elk bones & antlers are on
exhibit at the Mercer County
Historical Museum; you can
see them at the Open House,
Sunday, October 23, 1:00
-4:00.
A few thousand years
later, the Native Americans
continued to hunt for survival.
Wildlife was abundant here
in this area south of Lake
Erie. The European Fur
Traders began trading with
these Native Americans for
the animal skins, especially
the beaver skins. ( In spite of
the wars which were fought
over this hunting land, I will
not discuss war today; I am
speaking about hunting.)
Many of you readers
recall taking off school on
the “First Day of Hunting
Season.” Grandfathers,
Fathers, Sons, Uncles and
Cousins (including girls),
when hunting. Our Darke
County neighbor Annie
Oakley became famous for
her hunting and shooting
skills.
People also enjoyed the
sport of shooting stationary
and trap shoots and created
Gun Clubs. In the photograph
above, men went shooting
in Meinerding Grove, the
first farm west of St. Henry
on the south side of St. Rt.
119. They held their Club
Meetings in the Livery Barn
on Railroad Street in the
1890’s.
More recently, in October
1965 the first meeting of
the Saint Henry Gun Club
was held in accordance with
the laws of the Amateur
Trapshooting Association.
The first Members were
Thomas Osterholt, Alfred
Luttmer, Paul Janning, Paul
Osterholt, Jerome Osterholt,
Harold Thobe, Elmer
Quinter, Harold Gelhaus,
Bryce Brookhart, and
Gerald Bruns. Their Club
was located on the Walter
Reier property on Fleetfoot
Road. Eventually, the Club
closed due to so many legal
restrictions and insurance
requirements. Their history
can be found in the books
about Saint Henry’s History,
which I wrote years ago.
Today, Gun Clubs and
Sportsman Clubs are popular
with adults and youth, in
Mercer County. The History
of Hunting is continuing with
this next generation. In view
of the future of writing the
History of Hunting in Mercer
County, what will happen
if our Nation’s Government
Officials actually succeed
in taking away guns from
Hunters? Will that be the
end of hunting in Mercer
County and become the last
chapter of the book, “History
of Hunting?” Who wants to
write a history book like
that!

10 YEARS AGO (2001)
As of Monday, October 1,
2001, the Ohio Bureau of Motor
Vehicles began issuing Ohio’s
red, white and blue Bicentennial
license plate. The new plates
will replace all blue and white
license plates by 2003.
The Small business
Development Center of Wright
State University Lake Campus
has recognized V. J. Westerheide
and his wife Marilyn on behalf of
S & K Products as “2001 Client
of the Year.” S & K Products is
located at 4540 State Route 127,
south of Celina.
Mark Buschur and Brenda
Bergman were crowned St.
Henry Homecoming King and
Queen 2001 at this past week’s
football game against Lima
Central Catholic, which the
Redskins won 26-21.
25 YEARS AGO (1961)
Glenn Miller was installed
as president of the St. Henry
Kiwanis Club during the
September meeting. Also
installed were vice presidents
Frank Woeste and Al Homan,
treasurer Herman Hoying and
secretaty Paul Howell. The
immediate past president is
Mike Niekamp.
The Tri-County Atari Users’
Club will hold its third annual
Computer Faire on October 12,
1986 at Minster High School.
The club is an independent
computer users group organized
to provide assistance in helping
members and their families
make better use of the computers
they own.
50 YEARS AGO (1961)
The Reds lost the first game
of the 1961 World Series to
the Yankees in a well-played
game 2-0. Wally Post got one of
the two hits allowed by Whitey
Ford, who was just too much for
the National League champions
in this game.
The Coldwater Girl Scouts
and Brownies are having a
rummage sale in the Jack Kerns
building, next to the Post Office
on East Main Street Friday and
Saturday, October 13-14, 1961.
Having just spent the
last week-end in southern
Indiana around Brown
County trying to catch
some fish, with all the rain
I was just about to write the
whole week-end off. I was
eating breakfast on Sunday
morning at the Inn where
we stayed, and a father
came to the eating area with
his two small children. As
I looked at the two girls my
mind returned to the days
of our two daughters when
they were that age. And
I suddenly realized just
how fortunate I have been
through all these years. Our
two girls, along with their
brother, are all grown now
and on their own. All have
graduated from college and
all have good jobs. And as
I looked at those two little
girls I could see both of our
girls when they were just
like these two, running and
playing without a care in
the world. They are still my
little girls even though they
are both very much adults
and don’t really need their
Dad any more.
My point is I guess we
are very lucky to have
raised three very good
children who never caused
us a day’s worry. Both my
wife and I were very lucky
to have had such good
children. So the next time
you look at your kids take
a moment to really look at
them and think just how
lucky you are to have such
good kids. The Lord has
been good to both you and
your wife.
That’s My Opinion.............
What’s Yours????

Special September program
has members breathing
deeply, having fun.
Member Kitti Tolles’
program for the September
Stateline Writers Club
meeting began with members
playing art critics as they
were to examine the pictures
Tolles had on display and
write a short essay about what
they brought to mind, using
whatever slant or perspective
was most comfortable for
them. Tolles brought in some
of her own original art work
for this exercise.
They were told to close
their eyes and breathe deeply,
then to open to their inner
selves and let the words flow
onto the paper. “And have
fun!” Tolles emphasized.
After everyone wrote and
read their pieces, she traded
their work for a picture of
hers of their choice. “What I
found fun,” Tolles said, “was
that one of our member’s
husbands who normally
doesn’t participate joined in
on this exercise.” Program
Director Eileen Whitsett
said that Tolles “presented
a creative and interesting
program, and it will for sure
go down in our memories as
unique.”
The special committee of
Tolles, Ron Aragon, Martha
Schoen and Whitsett set up
to discuss using some of the
extra money in the treasury
presented information on
both a $100 book scholarship
and a first, second and third
place Auglaize and Mercer
County high school writing
contest totaling $150. Both
projects will move forward
following approval of
members and input from high
school teachers. Whitsett
made a motion that $100 be
left in the treasury after these
two projects were funded,
and President Alain Rion
seconded. Margaret Goodwin
then made a donation toward
this, and Whitsett said she
would cover the rest. The
committee will finalize plans
and make a report at the next
Stateline meeting.
Everyone then read their
current assignment pieces
about how their perspectives
have changed in the last five
years, and Nancy Wreede
came up with the October
assignment to “write in
longhand letters to your
grandchildren, even the
unborn ones.” This idea was
amended to include writing
to a present or future child as
well and that the letter did not
have to be handwritten.
The Club next meets on
Saturday, October 15, at 10
a.m. at the Celina Mercer
County Library. Meetings
are held at the library on the
third Saturday at 10 a.m.
Interested persons are invited
and encouraged to attend. For

70 Percent of Revenue
Supports Local Scouting
Autumn is around the
corner, bringing cooler
temperatures, falling
leaves and – BOY SCOUT
POPCORN. The Black
Swamp Area Council, Boy
Scouts of America Cub
Scouts and Boy Scouts from
all over our area are starting
to sell popcorn to fund their
Scouting activities. Many
packs and troops rely on this
annual sale to support their
scouting activities – like
summer camp, pinewood
derby and scout uniform
and supplies– throughout
the entire year. The sale also
allows individual Scouts to
earn prizes and scholarship
money for college. On
average, 70 percent of all
popcorn sales go directly to
support local Scouting.
Popcorn fans will
find Scouts selling all of
their favorites, including
microwave popcorn in
Butter Light, Kettle Corn
and Unbelievable Butter
flavors, as well as signature
snacks like Classic Caramel
Corn, Caramel Corn with
Nuts, Butter Toffee Caramel
Corn, Cheddar Cheese
Corn and White Cheddar
Cheese Corn. All flavors of
microwave popcorn are made
with heart-healthy canola
oil, making them lower in
calories, total fat, saturated
fat and sodium, while
also providing Omega-3,
Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty
acids. The entire product line
also contains 0g trans fats.
As the Cub Scouts and
Boy Scouts have offered
for the past several years,
customers also have the
option of sending popcorn
treats to U.S. Troops
stationed all over the world.
70% of every Military
Donation supports local
Scouting.
Black Swamp Area
Council, Boy Scouts of
America is a multi county
non-profit organization
serving Central and
Northwest Ohio. Founded
in 1910 the Boy Scouts have
served over 500,000 youth
in our area. Boy Scouts
provide several programs
including: Cub Scouts,
Boy Scouts, Venturing,
Explorers, Scout Reach, and
Learning for Life. Its current
youth membership is more
than 6800 with over 2500
adult leaders and volunteers.
Black Swamp Area Council
owns and operates two
youth camps, Camp Berry
in Findlay and Camp Lakota
in Defiance.
So to support local scouts
look for Scouts taking orders
in your neighborhood or in
local store parking lots.

specialist or attorney for professional advice about your situation.

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.

Afew years ago, the National Association of Professional Organizers designated the
first week of October as Get Organized Week. And while you may have misplaced your
notification of this event, it’s nonetheless a good time to see just how organized you are in
the important areas of your life — such as your finances.
You can organize your finances in two basic ways: by keeping track of where your
various accounts are located and by consolidating your assets. Let’s look at both these
areas.
To begin with, you might think it’s no big deal to keep track of your financial accounts.
After all, no one lets these accounts just slip away, does he? Actually, you might be surprised:
At least $32 billion, and possibly much more, of “lost” property (savings, investments,
retirement accounts and so on) are in the custody of state treasurers and other agencies,
according to the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators.
How do people misplace these funds? They might move from a town and forget to
close a bank account. Or they might leave a job and not realize they’ve left behind money
in a 401(k). However they do it, it happens — but you don’t want it to happen to you.
Fortunately, it’s not hard to keep tabs on your various accounts — you just need to
make a list. Where do you keep your checking and savings accounts? Where are your
investments held? Do you have a retirement plan, such as a 401(k) with your current
employer? How about any retirement plans with former employers? If you have Individual
Retirement Accounts (IRAs), do you keep them with multiple providers? By answering
these questions, you can develop a comprehensive list of what you own and where it’s
located. Of course, it’s a good idea to update this list periodically — at least once a year
— to reflect any changes in your ownership.
Knowing what you have will be helpful to you in evaluating your financial situation
today. But if you want to help yourself make progress toward your goals for tomorrow,
you’ll also want to consider another organizational technique: consolidating your assets.
Specifically, if you have some stocks here, a couple of certificates of deposits (CDs)
there and some IRAs at still another place, you might consider consolidating them with
one financial services provider. With all your investments in one place, you can possibly
reduce the fees and paperwork associated with maintaining your accounts. And when
you eventually start taking withdrawals from your IRAand 401(k), you may find it easier
to calculate these required distributions if they’re coming from just one provider, rather
than multiple sources.
But most importantly, when you consolidate your investments with one provider, you’ll
find it easier to follow a single, unified investment strategy. Aqualified financial advisor can
look at all your assets and determine if you’ve got redundancies in your holdings and if you
need to increase your diversification. (Keep in mind, though, that diversification, by itself,
can’t guarantee a profit or protect against loss.) Furthermore, once a financial advisor
knows your situation, he or she can recommend strategies that are appropriate for your
objectives, risk tolerance and time horizon.
Get Organized Week lasts only seven days. But by using this time to begin organizing
your finances, you could see benefits for years to come.

Annual Boy Scout popcorn sale kicks off
State of the Heart Hospice
recently gave a packet of
grief support books and
materials to school officials
from Mercer County. Nine
representatives of Mercer
schools attended a morning
reception to personally
receive their book packets.
Each school in Mercer
County will receive a
packet.
The gift of the books was
made possible by a $1,500
grant from the Mercer
County Civic Foundation.
This marks the third county
where State of the Heart has
provided books to school
officials. Thanks to grants
from other funding sources,
the books have been given to
schools in Randolph County,
Indiana, and in Darke
County.
“The books have been
very well received by school
officials,” stated Darlene
Pearson, a State of the Heart
social worker who assists in
bereavement support. Often,
she added, “school officials
don’t feel well prepared to
deal with the students when
there is a death in the school,
or a student loses a parent
or sibling.” The books and
other materials provide
needed support to school
officials.
State of the Heart Hospice
provides care to families and
patients in eastern Indiana
and western Ohio who are
confronting a life-limiting
illness. Bereavement support
is a major part of the care
provided by the non-profit
agency which has offices
in Greenville, Coldwater
and Portland. Bereavement
specialists work with children
on an individual basis and in
schools where they conduct
sessions for students.
Each summer, the agency
hosts Camp BEARable for
grieving children. The camp
will be held July 13-15 next
year at the Spiritual Center
of Maria Stein.
For more information

provided by State of the Heart,

Reviewed by
Skeet Wolters
Library Assistant

Carl Hiaasen is a
best-selling author and
columnist, and one of
the funniest men ever. I
mean laugh out loud funny
with lines that one might
commit to memory and
share with friends. Hiaasen
has been in the news
recently offering to pay
for drug tests for Florida
state representatives. The
same people who want
state welfare recipients to
be drug tested. All this
made me think of one of
my favorite books, Skinny
Dip, by Hiaasen. I have
recommended it numerous
times to library patrons
and it has been received
favorably.
The book is based in
Southern Florida, which
Hiaasen describes well
and with intrigue. I
enjoy learning about the
landscape, flora and fauna
of a book’s location.
The book starts out with
the characters, Joey and
Chaz Perrone, on a cruise
ship celebrating their
second anniversary. For
no apparent reason, Chaz
tackles his wife and throws
her over board into the
Atlantic Ocean. She is
totally taken by surprise,
but being an expert diver
and champion collegiate
swimmer, she survives the
fall with a dive into the
ocean and swims toward
Key West. She catches
onto a bail of Jamaican
marijuana that aids her
until she is rescued by
charming fisherman, Mick
Stranahan. Mick takes
her to his island home
where he nurses her back
to good health and gets
the gruesome details of her
ordeal.
Revenge is sweet, and
the two make a plan to
get even with Chaz that
does not involve the police
or admitting her survival.
They play games with
Chaz’s mind that have
the reader cheering them
on. Things that only a
writer with a strange sense
of humor could come up
with. I will not spoil the
story by giving away any
of them.
Other characters in the
book include Tools, the
rough, addicted bodyguard
turned humanitarian. Red
Hammernut, the rich
farmer who is polluting the
Everglades and a python
loving detective who finds
his lost snakes living in his
mattress.
Chaz is a biologist
working for an Everglades
farmer and covers up his
abuse of the water by
falsifying water samples
that are given to the
government. He thinks
his wife has caught him
at his deceit and thus the
need to eliminate her. The
plot thickens and fun and
romance continue for all
involved. A humorous
book and I think it would
make a wonderfully fun
movie. If you enjoy police
action, romance, Southern
Florida or marine life you
will enjoy this book. I
again recommend Skinny
Dip, which can be found
in the fiction area under
Hia. Remember to search
for books by the authors
first three letters of the last
name. Happy reading.

Through The Renal
Network, a not-for-profit
organization whose role is to
promote and support quality
dialysis care, the 5 diamond
safety program is an ongoing
program. Once achieving the
5 diamond level, facilities
maintain their status with
continued training each year.
The program is intended to
assist dialysis facilities with the
improvement of both staff and
patient awareness of patient
safety. The program consists
of educational models, which
include the tools and resources
necessary for implementation
of multiple patient safety
concepts. Participating
facilities use these resources
to teach their staff members
about patient safety.
As referenced in the
Institute of Medicine Report
(1999) “Each year between
44,000-98,000 individuals
die from medical errors
in hospitals. That is more
fatalities than motor vehicle
accidents, breast cancer and
AIDS combined. Medical
errors are the 5th leading
cause of death in the United
States”.
Dodi West, Administrator
of Kidney Services of West
Central Ohio says, “With
Kidney Services of West
Central Ohio’s 5 Diamond
Patient Safety Status, all of
our facilities have a proven
track record of placing patient
safety above all else. We are
dedicated to maintaining this
standard of excellence for you
and your loved ones year after
year. “
Kidney Services of West Central Ohio has successfully achieved 5
diamond patient safety statuses, the highest rating by The Renal Network

OFF THE WALL
Observations ... by John Bruns
MY UNSOLICITED
OPINION
I have very little to offer
about sports this week,
but I believe this column
is important. Following
the election of President
Obama, but before his
inauguration, I had a
discussion with a friend
about the recent election.
We differed on several
issues, but I asked if we
could agree that “his heart
is in the right place.” I
received a definitive, “No.”
She believed the man’s
intentions were purposely
not in the best interest of
our country. Some two-
and-a-half years after the
President was elected, I
read an article by a friend
who had written about his
thoughts on our elected
leaders. He wrote that he
thought the President at
times does not have the
best interests of the United
States in mind. He did
not see how anyone could
seriously think about
voting for the President
and accused Senators
who support him as being
immoral. I truly enjoy a
good challenging discussion
on a variety of issues. The
really good arguments deal
with facts: their validity,
their verification, and their
significance. When the
discussion resorts to name
calling and unsupported
claims, it is no longer fun
or productive. I like a
statement I once heard,
“Marriage is not a 50/50
deal; it is a 75/25 deal.”
In an effective marriage,
both parties have to be
contributing more than
their fair share to the
success. I would suggest
the government should
be doing more than many
people believe it should to
help its citizens. I also
believe individuals must
do more than many believe
they should in providing
for themselves and their
families. My principal
financial concern is my
health care. I can plan for the
other expenditures: housing,
food, transportation, etc.
Catastrophic health bills
or long term nursing care
are something I could not
accommodate. I believe
the government needs to
provide more medical
assistance to all Americans,
not less. Do we want to
get rid of Medicare? What
if we expand a version
of it to all Americans?
Would hiring increase if
businesses did not have to
pay their employees’ health
premiums? In science
class or in medical trials we
hear about the need for a
control specimen or group.
We cannot really evaluate
the effectiveness of a new
chemical, drug, or soybean
seed variety unless we have
a comparable control group
or bean field. Our economic
programs the last couple of
years did not have a control
by which to measure its
success or failure. We
do not know what would
have happened if we had
tried nothing or something
else. I heard on a Sunday
morning news story that
fifty million dollars is the
minimum amount necessary
to effectively start a
venture as a presidential
candidate. I also was told
that Governor Christie of
New Jersey could raise
that amount easily in about
three days. It is hard to
believe the government’s
rules concerning political
contributions truly promote
the principal of one man -
one vote. Rush Limbaugh
and his cohorts, Hannity,
O’Reilly, and Beck, are
gifted entertainers who have
a quick wit and exceptional
verbal skills. Limbaugh
developed his skills as a
former radio disk jockey.
They are fun to occasionally
listen to or watch, but their
ultimate goal is to entertain
and garner ratings, rather
than inform. We should be
careful not to confuse the
two. Their act is similar
to Doctor Phil and his
“private” therapy in front
of millions of TV viewers.

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.
Deb Borns prepares to cut the ribbon at the Dedication of the Celina Rotary Club Dog Park. Helping to hold the ribbon
is Darlene Lynskey and John Hunter, assistant chief of the Ohio’s Division of Parks and Recreation. On left is Craig
Morton, Regional Manager of Grand Lake St. Marys. Right: Jeff Larmore and Bentley. Photo by Roy Hall.

Boys Golf Preview
Two traditional Midwest

collide on Friday night in
Mercer County as Coldwater
hosts Delphos St. John’s in the
highlight game of the week in
the MAC.
The two squads come into the
contest tied atop the conference
standings along with Marion
Local at 4-0 in league play with
the winner taking a big step
towards a league title.
Although neither team is
undefeated overall, the teams
that have beaten these squads are
all undefeated on the season.
Coldwater is 5-1 overall on
the season with the lone loss
coming to Western Buckeye
League leader Kenton in week
one. Meanwhile, Delphos St.
John’s come in riding a four
game winning streak after losing
to Northwest Conference leader
Lima Central Catholic in week
one and undefeated Detroit
Catholic Central in week two.
While two of the three
league leaders go head-to-head,
the Flyers face a county rival
in Parkway as Marion Local
travels to Rockford. The Flyers
are 5-1 overall with their lone
loss to Lima Shawnee in week
one. Parkway is 2-4 on the
year as the Panthers defeated
Crestview and Fort Recovery so
far this season.
St. Henry (1-5, 1-3 MAC)
hosts Minster (4-2, 2-2) in a
conference battle while the
Indians (3-3, 1-3) welcome
in Anna (3-3, 1-3). The other
MAC contest on the night
has New Bremen (0-6, 0-4) at
Versailles (4-2, 2-2).
In the Western Buckeye
League, Kenton and
Wapakoneta continue on their
collision course as the two
squads continue to try and set
up a winner take all battle in
week ten.
However, the Wildcats and
Redskins each have home tilts
this weekend.
Kenton (6-0, 5-0) welcomes
in Lima Bath (4-2, 3-2) while
Wapakoneta (6-0, 5-0) hosts St.
Marys (3-3, 2-3).
Meanwhile, Celina (1-5, 1-4)
looks to make it a two-game
winning streak as the Bulldogs
visit Lima Shawnee (2-4, 1-4).
The other two league tilts have
Ottawa Glandorf (4-2, 3-2) at
Elida (4-2, 3-2) and Van Wert

Let’s work together to raise awareness of breast
cancer and the importance of early detection.
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women in the United States, and is the second
leading cause of cancer death in American women. Early detection saves lives, so make a monthly breast
self-exam part of your regular routine and see your doctor if you experience any breast changes. If you’re
a woman age 40 or older or have a history of breast cancer in your family, be sure to schedule an annual
mammogram and physical exam by your doctor.
In Loving Memory of the Women We’ve Lost to Breast Cancer
