Carter named parade grand marshal

By JOE SHOUSE • Progress Staff Writer

PAULDING – Every small town enjoys a parade and Paulding is no exception. For a few minutes the towns folk come together on an early summer evening to enjoy the best Paulding has to offer as they march down the street. Using John Paulding Days as the backdrop, the towns folk find their favorite location along one of the tree-lined streets and with a sense of pride they watch and listen as various parts of their community ceremoniously march by.

With the parade theme of “Music Through the Ages” this year’s parade is scheduled to step off at 7 p.m. on Thursday evening. More than 100 units will meander their way through the parade route. Grand marshal for the annual parade is George Carter, chief executive officer of Paulding-Putnam Electric Cooperative. Carter, his wife Debra and their family moved to Paulding from West Virginia nearly 10 years ago.

Officers of the Bargain Bin met with Paulding County commissioners on Monday morning for the transfer of two lots of county property to the local entity for the construction of a new facility.

The two lots, located behind the old jail, will be the location of a new Bargain Bin. The possibility of a new building occurred earlier this spring when officers of the Bargain Bin received an anonymous gift of $80,000 designated toward the construction of a new facility.

The deal was topped off a few days later when it was learned that $5,000 had been donated through the Paulding County Area Foundation for the acquisition of the two lots located at the corner of Harrison and Cherry streets. That property belonged to the county at the time.

April 7, 2007 is a day that Kay Doster will never forget. It was the day that she began a cancer journey that was “horrifying” but eye-opening concerning the love and care of those surrounding her.

Doster found a lump on her breast during self-examination.

“I went to see Dr. Gray in Antwerp and he made all of the arrangements. I was able to have my surgery and all of the treatments at Paulding Hospital. They were very good to me. They still are very good to me,” said Doster.
