We all love our Redskins. And every so often, a hometown favorite or a high school standout makes his way to the next level athletically. While he may not being wearing the Red and White of Wapakoneta, one collegiate football player has made his way onto the starting squad of a playoff team.
And he credits a lot of his success to his hometown in Auglaize county.
Some of you may remember him, but if not, meet Cale Tabler, now a sophomore at the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
A Forest city firm received the contract to clear log jams from the Auglaize River between now and April 1, 2014.
The Joint Board of Commissioners from Allen, Auglaize and Shelby Counties unanimously awarded the contract to Rahrig Tree Co. to clear logjams and trees along a 62-mile stretch of the Auglaize River from Westminster in Allen County through Auglaize County and back through Allen County and ending at the Putnam County line.
UNIOPOLIS — The attempt to unincorporate the village of Uniopolis was officially stopped by voters as Auglaize County Election Board members certified the election results on Tuesday.
Overall, the measure was defeated by a 60-57 vote, with three undervotes. The measure failed by one vote unofficially on Election Day before provisional ballots were counted. The vote was 56-55 on Nov. 6.
However, the issue does not seem to be over yet.
A local organization once again put together a compilation of historic photos together for their annual fundraiser.
The Downtown Wapakoneta Partnership (DWP) is currently selling their fourth annual calendars, and the 2013 Wapakoneta History Calendar is currently available.
“It’s a good gift for someone who has Wapak roots,” DWP President Dianne Knipp said. “It’s a small gift for people who enjoy history and for people who have ties to Wapak. It brings back a lot of memories.”
