Redskins fall to Crestview

July 7, 2012

The Wapakoneta Redskins Junior ACME team fell to the Crestview Knights for the second time in four days.

After falling 11-8 Tuesday in an error-filled game behind the pitching of sophomore pitchers Jon Eaton and Keaton Metz — the error bug struck again  and in the same inning, the fifth.

Heat affecting animals

July 7, 2012

The hot, dry weather is taking its toll on planted corn as the extreme heat causes the corn to shut down, especially during this critical time of pollination.

However, the heat can cause another problem for unprepared farmers. Farm animals can be adversely impacted.

Experts advise people to take care with trees

July 6, 2012

Last Friday’s storm stirred memories of other devastating storms to hit the region — the Ice Storm of 2005, the Blizzard of 1978.

Chainsaws again could be heard throughout the county at many times during the day as people cleaned up trees that fell on their yards, homes, sheds and automobiles. However many trees, while the “wounds” may look fatal,  have an amazing ability to recover, experts say.
