RAWSON — When the hard ones won’t fall, you have to make the free ones.
Waynesfield-Goshen did just that, overcoming a tough shooting night to pull out a 63-53 win over the Cory-Rawson Hornets in a non-league varsity girls basketball game Thursday night at Cory-Rawson High School.
The Tigers shot a paltry 14-of-52 (27 percent) from the floor for the game. But they more than made up for that with a 29-of-39 (74 percent) performance from the free throw line.
The Wapakoneta Sertoma Club held their 37th annual chili supper Thursday and a large turnout resulted from their efforts.
By 1:30 p.m., club workers had already put in a busy day as more than 400 people had come through for lunch. They expected to reach a minimum of 1,000 to 1,200 people by closing time 7 p.m. and hoped to match their annual crowd of approximately 1,300.
“The cooks were in at 5 p.m. (Wednesday) and they cooked until 9 p.m. getting ready for today,” club member Tom Hunter said.
BOTKINS — How do different fertilizers affect plant growth?
How does popcorn pop?
Can lemons power a light bulb? (yes, by the way).
What do deer see?
How are fossils formed?
Why don’t ducks get wet?
If anyone’s asked these questions or questioned many of life’s other great mysteries, then the Botkins Middle School gymnasium was the place to be Thursday night as the school hosted its bi-annual science fair.
In an effort to reach out to sixth-graders, who will be required to get the Tdap vaccine before entering seventh grade, the Auglaize County Health Department is providing school-sponsored clinics throughout the county.
State-provided vaccinations are administered to students through the clinics, which are held at the convenience of students and parents at a variety of locations offsite in each community.
Through the clinics students can receive the Tdap vaccine, which is a combined formula for tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis, for $10.
