UNIOPOLIS — A street issue involving a small 30-foot stretch of land is no longer a dead issue in Uniopolis.

Residents on the street said farmers should not be using the road as a short cut to get to Trupointe and that its use by farmers poses a safety risk to kids who play in the area.

With a few weeks left until the Auglaize County Fair, a local 4-H group held a roping clinic to get some practice before the big event.
The Horse and Pony Pioneers 4-H Club hosted a roping seminar at the fairgrounds on Sunday, and a certified roping judge and a county roping program organizer helped demonstrate the basics of roping for the participants in attendance.
“I try to teach them that a rope is their friend,” Auglaize County roping competition judge Tom Baldwin said, “and not their enemy.”
