The Auglaize County Public District Library Board of Directors approved a motion Tuesday to reinstate hours to their former level prior to cuts in 2008.
The move pushes the total hours the district libraries will be open to 180 from 132, a 36 percent increase. The increases were 48 hours from 40 hours in Wapakoneta, 20 hours from 13 in Cridersville, 32 hours from 26 in Minster, 32 hours from 20 in New Bremen, 24 hours from 13 in New Knoxville, and 24 hours from 20 in Waynesfield.
A dog that attacked a Wapakoneta man Monday night is being quarantined for 10 days by orders of the Auglaize County dog warden.
Dog Warden Russ Bailey said the 3-year-old male boxer and lab mix is being kept in quarantine at the owner’s house on Murray Street.
The dog is owned by Mike Jackson, 30, according to a Wapakoneta police officer’s report.
An investigation is ongoing and charges are expected, Wapakoneta police clerk Denise Kohler said.
Life can take people in many directions. Wapakoneta resident Nancy Scott is a shining example.
Scott recently received the Award of Service medal from the Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth, for her service in the Women’s Land Army in England.
