Helping people has always been the mission of God’s Storehouse and for 30 years, the volunteers running the local food pantry have been able to do just that.
God’s Storehouse recently celebrated its 30th year of serving the community with the need continuing to grow. In 2012, God’s Storehouse distributed $57,000 in food, a steady increase from $26,821 in 2008, $44,145 in 2009, and $47,621 in 2010.
Plans were recently approved to replace two Auglaize County bridges this year.
The bridges span Six Mile Creek on Salem-Noble Road and the Miami and Erie Canal on Deep Cut Road.
Auglaize County Engineer Doug Reinhart said they plan to do as much work as they can with county crews to save on construction costs.
He said having bridge engineers in house to develop design plans and draft drawings saves the county money on these projects, as thousands could be spent just on consulting fees without them.
Wapakoneta residents are being advised to keep their vehicles locked.
Wapakoneta Police Chief Russ Hunlock said summer months are a prime time for thieves to strike and warned city residents to not make their vehicles easy targets.
“In the summer months, more people are out roaming around and more thefts from vehicles occur,” Hunlock said. “People who steal are looking for easy targets and unlocked vehicles.”
