Last year, approximately 1,100 low to moderate income taxpayers
in Monroe County
claimed and received the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). As a
result, more than $2.2 million in EITC money - an average of
$2,098 per taxpayer - came back to county residents, to be saved
or spent as each recipient saw fit.
The Internal Revenue Service estimates that about 80 percent of
those who qualify for EITC apply for and receive it, but many
still miss out because they fail to claim their EITC. Beginning
with EITC Awareness Day on Jan. 28 and extending throughout the
month of February, the IRS is reaching out to potentially
qualifying taxpayers to educate them about the credit and
motivate them to file and claim it.
People who earned $48,362 or less from wages, self-employment or
farming in 2010 should check to see if they qualify. Workers who
may qualify for EITC include those who live in rural areas,
those who are self-employed, or have experienced other status
This year, the EITC benefit tops out at $5,555 for married
taxpayers who have three or more qualifying children and who
file a joint return, but parenthood is not required to qualify.
The EITC Assistant tool on www.irs.gov can help determine EITC
eligibility and filing status, as well as estimate the amount of
credit you may be due. Help can also be found at IRS Taxpayer
Assistant Centers and at Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)
sites. EITC - if you earned it, file, claim it and get it.

Don’t think about the cost of doing something; think about the
cost of doing nothing.
An ounce of don’t say it, is worth a pound of didn’t mean it.
Well, we’re still having weather. It is nice, however, when we
have a day with no snow and sunshine as it was yesterday.
(Thurs. of last week). Cold but no snow.
We seem to rely on animals to predict the weather and other
things. The groundhog has predicted that spring is just around
the corner. Only one problem, there is no indication where that
corner is located. In 117 times Mr. Groundhog is correct only 29
percent of the time. I’m not sure if this is predicting an early
spring or what. The story didn’t say. Even at that, I sometimes
think the groundhog is as accurate as some of the experts I see
I saw where an elephant was used to predict the outcome of the
Super Bowl. You know now if the old boy was correct. Two
watermelons were painted, one with the Packers logo and one with
the Steelers logo. The melons were put in place and the elephant
was turned loose. Mr. elephant walked out and stomped the
Steeler watermelon, meaning the Packers would win. You know now
if the elephant made a correct prediction. The little skit with
the elephant didn’t show if it went over and stomped the Packer
watermelon too. Come to think of it, I would not put any money
on either prediction if I were a betting man. I did read where
you could have purchased a ticket to the game for several
thousand dollars plus some change. I plan to sit in my newly
purchased recliner with a can of Mountain Dew, some potato chips
and maybe a hot dog and watch the game. I might even be tempted
to turn to another station if it gets boring. I can hardly wait
to watch the halftime show. Ha! Who am I kidding?
Got some excellent news the other day. After a number of trips
to Parkersburg, getting shots to the eye, a
cataract removed, the eye doctors tell me they don't want to see
me for several months now. One for five months and one for over
a year, unless I have a problem. This means my eyesight is
excellent. They even had a big smile when they told me. My smile
was bigger. Now if I could get my ears to working a bit better
I’d have it made. This is not all bad as the hearing aids work
OK and I can lay on my better ear at night and have everything
nice and quiet, for the most part.
It kind of looks as though several of our basketball teams have
done very well this year.
girls have made it to the OVAC playoff and it looks as though
all three boys’ teams will make it to the playoff. This means
they are one of the top four teams in their OVAC division. We
wish them luck.
Sudden thought: With all the technology floating around and
worked into our school curriculum we still rely on a groundhog
and elephant to tell us what’s going to happen.
Did you ever ride a stick horse when you were a kid? I think I
ran off a good number of Indians, rustlers and crooks with my
stick horse. Now some would think a kid’s elevator did not
quite reach the top floor now if they saw a kid riding a stick
horse around. We even tied a rope on the front of our horse for
a bridle. After all, we had to know if we were riding our horse
forward or backward.
Flash forward to the
State campus. You might
see up to 50 college students riding a broom, yes a broom. Talk
about your learning technology.
I guess it all started with Harry Potter. I’m not sure as I’ve
never read any of the books or seen any of the Harry Potter
movies so I’m not exactly sure about what I am writing about.
I think in one of the movies there were witches flying around on
brooms trying to catch someone who had stolen a golden
As you know, witches today cannot fly around on a broom so the
college students have developed a game, contest or whatever it
is, called Quidditch.
Each team has eight positions. Three chasers try to score goals
with the quaffle (a soccer ball), two beaters to knock the
opposing team members out of play by hitting them with a bludger
(kickball) and keeper guards the goal posts and a seeker to
catch the Golden Snitch that can run anywhere. They must ride
this broom at all times. If hit by a bludger then must run
around the goal posts. It must be rough as the OSU team broke
all their brooms during their first game. Oh yes, players are
called muggler, I guess that’s a witch that can’t fly. If you
want to learn more about it, look it up on the internet.
Nothing lasts longer than something you don’t like.

... What is it?
by Martha Ackerman
Custom growing. What is it? It’s a new concept in gardening that
is being introduced locally by Stan and Joan Roby of Malaga
Greenhouse. It’s a way for the gardener to find just what he or
she wants to grow and receive advice on the best plants to
accomplish that task and, best of all, the plants will be
available to the customers when they want them. “Custom growing
is not more expensive, it’s just more convenient,” said Stan.
What a great idea for the local community gardener!
“Custom growing is an opportunity for our customers to get the
products they want when they want them and how much they want,”
said Stan. If you are an early gardener, Malaga Greenhouse can
accommodate you with the plants you want to get that jump on
things. If you want to begin planting in May, when the majority
of people start their summer vegetable and flower gardening, the
plants could be ready for you then. What a concept!
Custom growing also allows you to choose the varieties of
vegetables and flowers you want without traipsing all over to
find those specific varieties. Customers have already shown
interest in the custom growing, noted Stan. Malaga Greenhouse
has several orders for spring plants as well as orders for
specific types of hanging floral baskets. Custom orders placed
before March 1 will receive a 10 percent discount off regular
retail pricing, said Stan, adding there are always discounts on
With the custom growing will be a change in the pricing
structure. Customers will still be able to purchase the more
inexpensive plants, but pricing will reflect the cost of seeds
and production. This gives customers a better sense of the
quality of the plants they are purchasing and the opportunity to
try different varieties.
This year, in addition to a variety of daylilies and hostas,
Malaga Greenhouse will be stocking 20 types of perennials, 75
different annuals, 35 different vegetable plants and 25
different herbs. They like to introduce new varieties each year.
For example, Joan is excited to be able to offer asparagus
plants this year. She said the plant takes two years of growth
until it produces, but then it can produce for 20 years. “We
will be trying all kinds of new things and will be researching
to find out what works best for our customers,” said Joan.
Joan also pointed out that now is the time to get your tree
order in. If it’s a type of fruit or flowering tree you want,
the Roby’s can probably find it and order it for you.
Stan is excited about the new addition to their business – a
geothermal heated greenhouse. Years ago the prior owners, Dan &
Sue Greenlee, installed geothermal capability for hydroponics
growing. This past fall, with expert advice from Roy Wilson and
help from many others, a new 72’x24’ greenhouse has been built
and the geothermal equipment reactivated by Rumer-Loudin
technicians. The Robys hope to save significantly on the heating
costs. “We can better control growing expenses with the
geothermal greenhouse and carry that savings on to our
customers,” said Stan.
Stan and Joan are also starting a garden center this year in a
large area behind the office and gift shop. Customers will be
able to browse the area and see plants in different stages as
well as a variety of container plants. The garden center will
also carry a variety of soils, mulches and gardening tools.
The main sales greenhouse, as in years past, will be a browsable
area full of flowers and vegetable plants. Spring flowers,
including bulb gardens, tulips, daffodils, hya-cinths and crocus
plants, will soon be ready, noted Joan. Bulbs were started last
fall and are available through Easter.
The Robys would like to see more young folks try gardening. A
lot of the younger generation may be overwhelmed by the thought
of planting a garden, said Stan, but he added there are so many
good sources available right here in Monroe
County. “Local farmers have a wealth
of information and most are willing to share the knowledge they
have from years of experience,” said Dan.
The community has been very supportive, noted Joan. She said
they have brought them vases to re-use which helps cut costs in
the family business. Seventy-five percent or more of the items
in the gift shop come from local crafters. The cala lilies used
in arrangements are grown on site.
Malaga Greenhouse is a full service business and can provide
floral arrangements for weddings, funerals and special
occasions. Joan also suggests you call her if you need floral
delivery any where in the country. She can save you time and
money by working directly with other florists. Local delivery is
always available at Malaga Greenhouse.
And if it is information you’re seeking, Stan and Joan have a
great command of the internet and if they don’t know how to deal
with a plant problem, they have the world to access to find the
solution. One customer called to ask what to do about the little
white bugs on the mums she held over from last season. Joan told
her to put a little Dawn dishwashing detergent in a spray bottle
full of water and spray it well. The soap acts as a pesticide.
“We’re not experts yet, but we are on the internet,” said Stan,
who has had years of experience with computers. He added that
OSU Extension is a wonderful resource, noting that any gardening
question you ask, they will either provide the answer or tell
you where to find the answer. “They are a wonderful group
locally and in Columbus. They’re top
notch,” added Stan.
Malaga Greenhouse, located on State Route 800, one mile south of
Malaga, is open Monday-Wednesday, 9-5; Thursday, 9-1; Friday and
Saturday, 9-5. For more information on their custom growing,

resident Lee Yoss, originally from Woodsfield, was a First
Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Air Corps; 10th Air Force; 5th Bomb
Group; 492nd Bomb Squadron.
U.S. Army Air Corps veteran Lee Yoss flew 62 missions as a B-24
bomber navigator in the China-Burma-India theater of war during
World War II.
Yoss had a year of college under his belt at The Ohio State
University when he enlisted in the air corps.
The engineering major entered the service as an air cadet and
later, because of his engineering background, was assigned as a
He trained at Ellington Field in San Marcos, Texas, and was assigned to a bomber crew at March Field in
“We were there for about four months training for combat
missions,” he said.
At Hamilton Field near Sacramento,
“We were as-signed a brand new B-24,” to fly overseas to India, Yoss said.
The crew took the long way to their assigned air base. The group
flew across the U.S. to Newfoundland,
then to the North African cities of
Marrakesh, Tripoli and Cairo,
among many other stops.
“We saw the Taj Mahal,” he said. “As long as we were going, I
made sure we went to all these places,” he said, laughing. “I
was the navigator.”
stayed there two days,” Yoss said. “We got to see the pyramids.”
The crew managed to buy time and extend their “vacation” by
blaming it on the aircraft.
“Our pilot always had something ‘wrong’ with the engine that had
to be ‘repaired,’” Yoss said, laughing.
The crew caught hell for its leisurely jaunt across the
“The commanding officer said, ‘It took you three weeks to get
here. From now on, you’re going to be flying in combat!’”
On the first few missions, the pilot and navigator flew with
experienced pilots and their crews to get an idea of what it was
like to be in battle.
Yoss’ first mission with his new crew was
Burma, and he
asked what kind of resistance they’d be facing over the target.
“The pilot said, ‘Look, it’s a piece of cake. It’s a milk run,’”
As they approached
Mandalay, things went sideways quickly.
“Holy Smokes! All of a sudden here comes the Zeroes, the
Japanese fighter planes, shooting at us. Ack ack (anti-aircraft
fire) was coming up at us. We could see the flak. We could hear
the flak hitting the plant and knocking holes in the plane.”
The aircraft managed to land safely, but all aboard were shaken
by the experience.
“The crew kissed the ground,” he said.
Yoss thought the pilot had downplayed the danger of the bomb
run–but, in fact, the pilot was just as surprised as Yoss.
“He said, ‘This is one of the toughest missions we’ve ever
had,’” Yoss said.
After a couple of missions, Yoss and his original crew were
reunited and were on their way, for the first time as a group,
“We started flying in formation,” Yoss said. “We had to fly as
tail-end Charlie–the last plane in the formation.”
On the ground it took a while for the Japanese to adjust their
anti-aircraft guns to the correct height to hit the incoming
The plane flying last in formation “was the one that got the
very bad ack ack,” he said. “Our plane flew tail-end Charlie for
about four missions. That was rough.”
After flying about 10 missions in regular formation, they were
assigned as the lead crew; Yoss was the lead navigator.
“We bombed airfields, munition dumps, fuel supply depots and
railroads,” he said. “I had 38 missions. We thought maybe they
would be sending us home, but we flew four more missions.”
“The scariest times were when the Japanese fighters were coming
up after us,” he said. “The fighters would dive through our
formation. Our guns were shooting at them. The Zeroes knocked
down a couple of our planes.”
After the crew tallied its 42nd mission, they were assigned to
assist the Air Transport Command–the group in charge of
delivering supplies to troops fighting in
The transport planes flew perilous missions over the Himalayan
Mountains– dubbed “The Hump”– and many were lost due to bad
weather conditions or engine troubles.
“They needed fuel transported,” Yoss said. “They converted some
of our B-24s into fuel tankers. They took three bomb bays out
and put big tanks in and loaded them up with fuel. We had to fly
over The Hump and deliver the fuel to China.”
Although the transport planes didn’t face enemy fighter pilots
or anti-aircraft fire,the rugged terrain and poor visibility
claimed many planes and their crews.
“We lost more planes flying The Hump,” he said. “They’d lose an
engine and with that heavy load of fuel ... so many planes
exploded on the mountain.”
Then the “B-29 dropped an A-bomb on
Hiroshima and Nagasaki and they allowed
our crew” to return to the States.
The crew’s original aircraft, nicknamed “The Old 97,” survived
all of its missions, including the flight home.
After the war, Yoss returned to The Ohio State University and
earned his engineering degree.
Yoss went into business for himself after spending a few years
in the workforce after graduation.
He owned Lee Foam Products Inc. for 50 years, operating three
plants in Southern California and two plants in
Yoss was born in Woodsfield Dec. 23, 1923. At age 86, he resides

Mark Yoss, all deceased; Denise Freitag of
