Snow plow plan: Wapak council chair favors new approach to battle snow on streets

December 26, 2011

One city elected official says he believes the best scenario is never having to utilize the equipment purchased for an emergency or for inclement weather, but he also realizes that thought is unrealistic.
Wapakoneta City Council 4th Ward Councilor Dan Graf said while the saying is often used by fire chiefs regarding fire trucks, he believes the adage can be applied to the harsh road conditions battled by members of the Public Works Department and local motorists.
He also thinks a new plan developed this year should help in fighting the war against ice and snow.

Final note: Local retires from music lessons after 60 years

December 26, 2011

A local woman who has a passion for music has retired from giving music lessons, but will never retire from her love for music.

Last Tuesday marked Barlage’s last music lesson, after 60 years, and she said she felt it was time to retire.
“I have studied music all of my life,” Barlage said. “Music has always been easy to me. It’s a gift.”
