Robert Louis Bowsher, 98, died peacefully Dec. 29, 2012, at St. James Place.
He was born May 21, 1914 in Wapakoneta, the son of Louise (Fisher) and Francis Jacob Bowsher, who both preceded him in death. In 1940, he married his wife of 59 years, Gene Lois Troxel and she preceded him in death.
In a place “where dreams come true,” one family has been experiencing just this.
Amy and Matt Kentner’s children, Eli, 14, Olivia, 13, and Emma, 12, have not only had the chance to visit Disney World several times, but they were able to run in a 5K and a half-marathon with their mother and grandparents.
All three of the children will have accomplished a goal — which is running a half-marathon by the age of 12 — and not just any half-marathon, but one in Disney World.
With courthouse renovations complete, two Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs) are back in operation in Auglaize County.
Having two such facilities makes Auglaize County a rarity in the state, but local emergency officials say they feel it is necessary.
Rather than designating a primary and a secondary EOC, as previously discussed, Auglaize County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) Director Troy Anderson said they will be referred to by the designations east and west.
ST. MARYS — The New Year’s baby for Auglaize County is Atticus Logan Kinsey, born to Chelsie, 23, and Brandon, 30, Kinsey, of St. Marys at 7:33 a.m. Jan. 1. The newborn weighed in at 7 pounds, 10 ounces, and measured 20 inches long. Atticus Logan was born at Joint Township District Memorial Hospital.
Chelsie Kinsey said she was playing “Duck-Duck-Goose” with her two children, Cashis, 3, and Mikayla, 7, about five minutes after watching the ball drop in New York City when she went into labor.
