A man found dead at his Fryburg home Friday, appears to have died of natural causes, although the investigation continues, Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon said this morning.
Solomon this morning released additional details surrounding the death of Michael L. McClintock, 60, of the home in the village southeast of Wapakoneta.
McClintock was found dead at the residence Friday morning by a relative. Deputies were dispatched to the scene at 8:30 a.m. and didn't leave until approximately 6 p.m.
A mist forms as the 917-pound steer’s hot breath hits the cool air in the Show Barn Saturday at the Auglaize County Fairgrounds.
The steer, with a sable black coat, walks the show ring as Wapakoneta High School student Kerrie Miller grips tightly on the reins. She works the steer into the best position for judging, taking advantage of past experience gained at past shows to sharpen her skills even further during the Moon City Preview, sponsored by the Wapakoneta Young Farmers and the Wapakoneta FFA Alumni.
WAYNESFIELD — Stepping into one room at Waynesfield-Goshen Local Schools included stepping back into time.
A group of Civil War re-enactors hosted an 1860s ladies tea to help visitors to the Waynesfield-Goshen Muchinippi WinterFest learn about the time period and a different pace in life.
“We were really teaching people about what the teas were all about and why the ladies held them,” Carol Baker, one of the re-enactors dressed in a hoop-skirted blue dress, said.
Twins Abbie and Allie McGaughy are glad they have each other, but both admit they are different.
“We don’t look the exact same,” Abbie said.
Abbie has long, blond hair and is the taller of the two. She describes herself as more of a tomboy, who likes to do karate and play basketball. She likes to wear jeans. She likes to read scary books and her favorite singer is Taylor Swift.
