In a flash, Wapakoneta EMS personnel watch as a person being transported in a rescue squad jumps out the back door when the vehicle stops for a traffic light at the intersection of Wood and Bellefontaine streets. He flees the scene on foot.
While the Wapakoneta police K-9 tracks the suspect back to his home, the suspect cannot be found.
Traffic at the Neil Armstrong Airport, located outside of New Knoxville, has been picking up since spring.
âWeâ-ve been extremely busy during the last two months,â Neil Armstrong Airport Manager Sean Stroh said. âWeâve seen a huge increase in corporate and agriculture traffic.â
Stroh said while every spring the airport has some increased traffic from crop dusters, this year that number nearly doubled what it would be during an average year.
âMore farmers used aerial applications since they were unable to get in the wet fields,â Stroh said.
The health education director for the Auglaize County Health Department recently received recognition as a âDistinguished Toastmaster.â
Janet Bassitt, 58, of Wapakoneta, was presented with the award, including a plaque and medallion, during a recent district conference.
Having joined the local Toastmasters Group, Grand Lake Toastmasters, of St. Marys, to improve her communication skills, Bassitt said she never anticipated achieving the highest level of recognition members of the international organization can earn.
