September 21, 2012

 

It goes without saying that the Redskins wanted to win the WBL tournament.

Regular season champions, Van Wert, also took home first prize Thursday morning.

Most of you don’t know me.

I’m the new sports guy at the paper. I’m a graduate of The Ohio State University. I’m an avid sports fan who loves organized sports and Hawaiian Pizza. Most of you still don’t know me.

Let’s start with my journey to Wapakoneta.

An area businessman and radio personality recently visited a local school this week to talk about a book the students were reading.

Health Dept. to offer flu vaccine

September 21, 2012

This year, there will be some changes to how the Auglaize County Health Department personnel administers the flu vaccine — and those changes will affect people throughout the county.

No longer will they be taking it out into the individual communities in the county, Auglaize County Nursing Supervisor Cindy Jones said.

“We have done that in the past,” Jones said. “With so many other places now offering the vaccine, the need for us to be in the community isn’t there.”
