Investigation of the matter continues, while a second Payne man was arrested on Sunday on related drug charges. Further charges may be led in the future, according to Sheriff Jason Landers.

      PAYNE – On Monday afternoon, the Paulding County Sheriff’s Ofce announced an arrest in connection to the death investigation of a Payne man who died Aug. 15.   Andrew J. Martin, age 26, of Payne, was arrested Sunday, Aug. 16 on pre- liminary charges of illegal manufac- turing of drugs, a third-degree felony, and corrupting another with drugs, a second-degree felony.   His arrest came after a search war -

    rant was executed following the deathof Cary Parsons, 50, of 202 E. Town- line St., Payne, which occurred Satur -

    day.   “It is our belief that Mr. Martin pro- vided a controlled substance that he manufactured to Mr. Parsons, which we believe might have contributed to the death of Mr. Parsons,” said Sheriff Jason Landers. “As this investigation continues, I feel more criminal charges will be considered by the prosecuting attorney.”   The investigation of the suspicious death of the Payne man continues from many angles, according to the Sheriff in a Monday morning interview.

      “We are looking at this from 14different angles and examining every lead on it that we can,” said Landers.

      On Saturday morning at 10:29 a.m., the Paulding County Sheriff’s Ofce received a call from Parsons’ girlfriend who reported that Parsons was “not  breathing and cold.”   Landers said that when deputies rst arrived at the scene on Saturday morning, they saw that a male was dead. The unresponsive male was in the kitchen of a residence at 202 E. Townline St.   “Our initial assessment of this death has developed some concerns,” said Landers. “The Ohio Attorney

    General’s BCI crime scene investiga-tion unit has been called to assist us.”   Antwerp EMS and Payne EMS

    units both made transports from the scene.   It was noted that one local deputy was on the scene about three hours and another about 3.5 hours on Saturday.   A search warrant was executed on Sunday evening at 7:46 p.m. on Lau- ra Street in Payne. Martin resides on South Laura Street.   Landers said county Coroner Dr. Joseph Kuhn, the Payne Police De-  partment, the Ohio Attorney Gener- al’s Bureau of Criminal Investiga- tion’s crime scene investigation unit

    along with the sheriff’s ofce contin-ue to work together in the investiga- tion.

    ‘Extraordinary variance of

    crop production’ this year 

      Jim Langham/Paulding County Progress   In some areas of the county the corn crop is much better than other areas. Corn planted prior to the heavy rains developed a horizontal root system rather than a vertical root system. Sarah Noggle said that many of those roots are so shallow that the ground around them has all dried up.

      PAULDING – “Where corn is good it is good, and where corn is bad it is bad,” said Paulding County Extension Educator Agriculture and Nat- ural Resources Sarah Noggle on Monday.   “There are so many elds that look okay and others that

    don’t look so good. I think we all know this is not going to  be a record-breaking crop, but there are a few out there that are going to have pretty good yields,” continued Noggle.   “It sounds strange to say this but we are getting a little dry in some places,” said Nog- gle. “We’re getting hurt by a lack of nitrogen.”

      One problem with corn is those crops were planted just  prior to the heavy rains and developed a horizontal root system rather than vertical roots. Many of those roots, noted Noggle, are so shallow that the ground around them has all dried out now.   A typical varied rainstorm  passed through the county last

    Saturday evening, dropping  between 0.3 inch of rain in the northeast part of the county to nearly 3 inches in the Payne area to the southwest.   “Although I don’t see any record-breaking yields of corn, we are going to see a huge extreme on yields,” Nog-
