Local referee to join hall of fame

July 26, 2012

Local fans probably have seen this Wapakoneta man on the basketball court a hundred times. But most have probably never noticed him. He’s the proverbial unsung hero of high school sports.

His tools? A whistle and a striped shirt.

He is the referee.

Meet Steve Trout. Today he is the newest member of the Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame and resident of Wapakoneta. Steve has been officiating basketball for more than 35 years.

Exploring options

July 26, 2012

The Auglaize County commissioners continue to explore their options for funding the construction of a new dog shelter.

“We are still trying to figure out where we are at financially with the building,” Commissioner Doug Spencer told Dog Warden Russ Bailey during a meeting this week. “We are looking at whether any advance is possible toward the Dog and Kennel Fund. There is still the potential that we may not be able to advance you but the need for a shelter has not lessened. Borrowing money for it may be the only viable option we have.”

Warden busy with new dog law

July 26, 2012

A new state law addressing dangerous and nuisance dogs is keeping the Auglaize County dog warden busy.

Dog Warden Russ Bailey said he has been “very, very busy” since the new law took effect May 22.

“We’ve made six notifications so far,” Bailey said during a regular monthly meeting this week with the Auglaize County commissioners. “One was for a nuisance dog, the others were for dangerous dogs.”

He said five bites came from pit bulls.

Senator works to help combat foreclosures

July 26, 2012

Federal assistance and money are available for Ohioans whose homes were foreclosed in 2009 and 2010, a U.S. legislator says in his personal push to notify 140,000 people in his home state who may qualify for a free review.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown revisited the issue after only 6,000 of the 140,000 eligible Ohioans initiated the free Independent Foreclosure Review (IFR) process and because Congress extended the review deadline for a final time to Sept. 30.
