Second grader loves recess, goats and snacks

October 7, 2013

A Wapakoneta Elementary School second grader doesn’t hesitate a second when asked what her favorite part of school is — recess.
Typically 7-year-old Jaden Gerstner said she plays games of chase.
Lunch comes in a close second.
“Mmmmm,” Jaden says as she thinks about the school cafeteria’s pizza.
It doesn’t matter what kind, because they are both good, she said.
Living just outside of Wapakoneta, the daughter of Dawn and Chris Gerstner has “goats, cats, rabbits, kittens and a dog,” she said, “and enough room to play.” Jaden’s favorite thing to do outside is race her dog, LJ, to the barn.

Draped around the necks of approximately 50 people walking in the 9th annual CROP Walk in Wapakoneta was the picture of a person and on the back was the story of their life.
“It is the person who will benefit from my walking in the CROP Walk for the Church World Service,” the Rev. Adrian Sunday said as he walks along the newly reconstructed East Auglaize Street.
For more information about the CROP Walk, see the Monday, Oct. 7 edition of the Wapakoneta Daily News.

Deal reached

A recent contract offer for natural gas to the city is acceptable, but Mayor Rodney Metz says he would like to see a better price as the city of Wapakoneta continues to negotiate 6-month deals instead of annual contracts for its natural gas aggregation program.
“We have information regarding the rate, but it has changed a couple of times as we got closer to a deal for the next six months,” Metz told the Wapakoneta Daily News Sunday.
For more information about the gas rates and deal, see the Monday, Oct. 7 edition of the Wapakoneta Daily News.

LIMA  — Waynesfield-Goshen Tiger quarterback Lake Turner issued a declaration prior to their game against the Perry Commodores that the Tigers would get their first win of the year.

Turner and the rest of the team followed through on that promise.

As bad as the first half of the season went for the Tigers, the team’s reaction showed the fans the past was forgotten. While they were not electrifying, they were just efficient enough offensively and lights out defensively in a 14-6 win over Lima Perry.
