James Lewis Schumann, 77, of Wheelock Street, Keene, N.H. died at the Cheshire Medical Center-Dartmouth-Hitchcock in Keene on Friday, Dec. 13, 2013, after a period of failing health.
Jim was a former resident of Wapakoneta and was a graduate of Blume High School. He was a member at St. Markâ€™s Lutheran Church and was married in the church on July 27, 1958 to Wanda Lee Meyers and they have been married for fifty-five years.
A private memorial service and burial will be held at a later date in Keene, N.H.
Many local runners faced the snowy weather to participate in the first annual â€śHot Chocolate 5Kâ€ť on Saturday, and they were rewarded after they made it to the finish line.
â€śThe Y has done other versions of 5Ks and runs,â€ť Wapakoneta YMCA Director Josh Little said. â€śItâ€™s a unique event â€” itâ€™s exciting for Sertoma Club to partner with the Y.â€ť
The Wapakoneta Sertoma Club is dedicated to community service for hearing and vision.
Little said the two organizations came
together to think of a fun, unique way for locals to enjoy a run in the winter.
The inability to take action topped the action of Mondayâ€™s Wapakoneta City Council meeting.
Council faced two money ordinances tagged as emergencies â€“ a temporary appropriations ordinance to start fiscal year 2014, totaling more than $10 million through more than three dozen funds; and a supplemental appropriations ordinance totaling $177,000 to adjust seven different funds.
The 18th annual Miracle Meal took place at the Auglaize County Fairgrounds Monday night. Hundreds gathered in the Junior Fair Building at the Auglaize County Fairgrounds for a free Christmas dinner complete with gifts for children, music and fellowship.
Miracle Meal Board President Rollie Kent says the event started 18 years ago when a handful of Christians got together to give back to the community.
â€śWe decicded to do this and it started small,â€ť Kent said. â€śThen it grew each year into what it is now.â€ť
WAYNESFIELD — The Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers did what they should have Monday in handling a banged up Botkins Trojans team.
On paper, W-G was the favorite entering Monday’s contest, and the result on the scoreboard matched what showed on paper by the game’s end, as the Tigers managed a 65-37 victory in a non-league varsity girls basketball contest.
The Tigers are now 5-1 overall after Monday’s win.
The Trojans had only eight healthy players in the entire high school entering Monday’s game.
