Five weeks ago, after a 61-47 loss to the Bath Wildcats, Wapakoneta Redskins varsity boys basketball coach Matt Bradley challenged his team to ramp up its defensive effort.
Since that time, a span of seven games, the Redskins have given up no more than 55 points in any game.
They went 2-5 over that stretch, one of the toughest on the schedule with quality opponents such as Defiance, Ottawa-Glandorf and Liberty-Benton.
And it wonâ€™t get any easier Friday when veteran coach Dave Froelich brings his Van Wert Cougars to town.
Two residents of Auglaize Acres — who have a passion for baking — were recently reunited after many years.
Two former school cooks, 103-year-old Myrtle Delong and 93-year-old Leola “Dolly” Meyers, worked together as cooks at Northridge Elementary School in the 1960s and 1970s and were recently reunited when Delong became a resident of the short-term stay unit at Auglaize Acres.
UNIOPOLIS — Uniopolis Village Council members plan to discuss financial concerns of the village next week which could result in placing a levy on the ballot or even dissolving the village at the crossroads of Ohio 65 and Ohio 67.
Councilors called a special meeting for 6 p.m. Monday to discuss solutions for their financial problems. They plan to discuss the possibility of putting a police levy on the ballot to help a budget that councilors feel the village cannot balance in light of state cuts to municipalities.
BOTKINS — Botkins Board of Education members voted to approve the final plan for a project agreement with the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission to build a new school. The board made the move at its regularly scheduled board meeting Wednesday.
“The project is still in the design phase and this doesn’t really change that,” Superintendent Connie Schneider said. “This just formalizes the agreement for both the school board and the OSFC. It allows funding to start flowing in for the project.”
