Hanley E. Evans, 73, of 1025 Hendricks Ave. in St. Marys, died at 2:50 p.m. Monday, April 28, 2014, at his residence. He was born April 18, 1941, in Fonde, Ky., to Richard and Doshie (Snodgrass) Evans, Sr. On May 8, 1971, in Sidney, he married Elaine L. Lynch, who survives.
As a mother of two who is 15 years removed from college, Wapakoneta City Schools Treasurer and CFO Angie Sparks admitted she was a bit apprehensive about going back to school.
“I was very nervous because I knew I would have to learn how to balance a full-time job, school, two kids and still being involved in the community,” Sparks said.
In the fall, Sparks will once again set foot on the campus of her alma mater, Bluffton University, to begin a master’s program in business administration with a concentration in accounting.
The upcoming Bicycle Safety Day will mean an event filled with goodies, bicycles and fun for locals, but for one woman, it is a day filled with education she knows could save a life.
For six years, Marlene Froning has been organizing Bicycle Safety Day, which ensures that participating children receive proper bicycle equipment and education.
This year the event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 10 at the TSC garage building on Willipie Street, Wapakoneta.
Wapakoneta’s annual Drop and Swap is Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Public Works Department at 110 E. Harrison St.
This event is held in an attempt to reduce the amount of material going into the landfill by offering residents a place to drop off unwanted items and possibly exchange their items for someone else’s household goods.
However, you do not need to drop in order to swap, and you can drop without swapping as well.
