MILLBURY - Laura Lohmann's Lake Elementary art classroom is peppered with painted paper.
There are the stacks resting in "the biggest drying rack in Wood County." Others are piled on tables ready for students to cut and layer and paste. Even more of the paper is in the artwork that covers the halls of the school.
"It just gives so much more color to the project," she said. "You always have it, and it gives you so much color."
When Lohmann's students aren't working on a project, she has them paint paper to prepare for the next craft. They blend colors from the same palette onto construction paper.
It's fitting that Lohmann's blog is called paintedpaperintheartroom. It showcases ideas she's used in her classroom and gives step-by-step instructions on how to recreate some of her projects.
One of those crafts, a "palm" tree, was picked up by Family Fun and is featured in the December-January magazine. The editors have also asked Lohmann to do an art column for the magazine.
Lake burial index to be digitized PDF Print E-mail

MILLBURY - Thousands of Lake Township Cemetery records buried on index cards will begin to be computerized this month.
At last week's meeting, the Lake Township Trustees voted to use its current Uniform Accounting Network software to start modernizing the record-keeping process.
Fiscal officer Vicki Schwamberger and an office worker have researched several software packages, ranging in cost from $1,000 to $11,000. Schwamberger recommended starting with the UAN software, which would be no cost, then possibly upgrading once the records are computerized.
The urgency is due to the impending retirement of Sexton Gary Schulte in March. He has been head of the cemetery for 25 years and has kept the records on index cards and in his head.
"We do need to get this project going," said Trustee Chairwoman Melanie Bowen.
Over the next few weeks, an office worker will enter all of the records into the computer. An Internet connection will also be established at the cemetery to help with future record-keeping.

With a laundry list challenges facing the health center in 2014 following its receipt of a federal grant, the Wood County Board of Health voted to otherwise clear the plate of the center's CEO.
Ben Batey, CEO of the Wood County Community Health and Wellness Center, is also director of nursing for the health district. The health center received a Health Resources and Services Administration grant last month that will award $787,500 next year, $650,000 in 2015 and has the potential to be a permanent source of funding.
But with the award comes some strings. As the health center is expected to increase both its services and client load, additional clinic space is needed, requiring a reorganization within the health district building, and eventually an expansion.
Batey said during the meeting he will meet with representatives of Poggemeyer Design Group on Monday to begin planning the expansion.
With Batey attending to such tasks, the board voted to release him from nursing director duties from Dec. 1 through March 31 and appointed Amy Jones to the interim position. Jones, who has previously served in the position, will earn $64,116.

Marijane Tripp is working hard for her future - and she's not letting her past stand in her way.
Tripp, 26, is now acting as an intern with the Wood County Prosecutor's Office. She had previously served two years in prison following an armed robbery.
"I have learned a lot of lessons since that time," she said during a recent interview. "I have learned a lot about myself, and I'm definitely a stronger person than I was."
Tripp spent a total of two years and three months in custody for her part in a November, 2007, robbery at Huntington Bank in Bowling Green.
