September 27, 2011

The Wapakoneta Redskins varsity girls volleyball team improved its record to 9-6 with a four-game win over the Indian Lake Lakers on Monday at Wapakoneta High School.
Wapak won handily in the first two games — 25-18 and 25-13 — before the Lakers bounced back to take the third game 25-19.

Village seeks alternative energy sources

September 27, 2011

Waynesfield Village Administrator Fred Rowe informed Waynesfield Village Council members Monday about the possibilities for wind-generated energy and natural gas being brought to the village in the future.

Budget bill could prove expensive

September 27, 2011

WAYNESFIELD — Waynesfield Village Solicitor Bob Fitzgerald advised Waynesfield Village Council members that wording in the new budget bill could prove to be expensive for Waynesfield and other small villages.
He said he believes wording in the new budget bill carries a requirement for all municipalities to advertise all ordinances in public media.
“I received a letter from the state (addressing the new requirement),” Fitzgerald said during Monday’s Waynesfield Village Council meeting. “This will cost a lot of small villages a lot of money.”

Variance, denial read into record

September 27, 2011

An approved variance and a variance denial became part of the official record Monday as Wapakoneta City Zoning Board of Appeals members read the changes into the record.
Residents receiving the variance still must wait at least four days before they can start with building a new porch in case a legal objection is filed by a neighbor.
Netty and Chad Poe, 1 W. Silver St., want to tear down an existing porch and to build a new porch that is 2 feet closer to the street. The porch would extend the full length of the house, which is 32 feet, 6 inches. The existing porch is shorter.

Great to be home

September 26, 2011

For one Wapakoneta native, she says it is good to be back playing on the dirt infields at Veterans Memorial Park, driving down Bellefontaine Street and being in her hometown to see family and friends.
For the past two falls, Erica Bryan, who graduated from Wapakoneta High School in 2010, has been a member of the Ohio Wesleyan Battling Bishops, the only team to play all 14 years in a college softball tournament organized by former Wapakoneta Redskin softball coach Bob Elsass at the end of September.

Attracting college talent

September 26, 2011

The former Wapakoneta High School varsity softball coach knew it would be difficult to take members of his team to a couple of college softball games each year, so in 1997 he did the next best thing — he brought them to Wapakoneta.
On Saturday, Bob Elsass, who organized the 14th Red And White College Softball tournament, watched the nine teams visiting Wapakoneta play their games throughout the day at Veterans Memorial Park.

Secrets of Fest’s success

September 26, 2011

The staff, who is working hard at the stand for Woody’s Restaurant, reveals a secret about the competition, but not much about a new secret sauce.
“We created one sauce just for Wing Fest,” said Cody Counts, an employee of Woody’s Restaurant and in charge of the stand at the 10th annual Wapakoneta Wing Fest. “We sell five at the restaurant and we developed a sixth flavor for the competition.”
Counts would not reveal the special secret ingredients, just that restaurant owner Dan Stinebaugh and his brother, Bruce Stinebaugh, developed the new flavor.

FOOTBALL: Wapak ends Defiance drought

September 24, 2011

DEFIANCE — Connor Pickens had another big night and the Wapakoneta defense rebounded from a sluggish start as the Redskins defeated the Defiance Bulldogs 21-7 at Fred J. Brown Stadium for the first time since 1989.
“We knew it was a tough environment to come into,” Wapak coach Doug Frye said. “We cleared a hurdle tonight. ... We’re making some progress. I’m just a hard guy to please.”
The win upped Wapak’s record to 5-0 on the season and got the Redskins within one win of their first back-to-back winning seasons since 1991.

FOOTBALL: Tigers trump Commodores

September 24, 2011

PERRY TOWNSHIP — The Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers spoiled the Perry Commodores’ homecoming game with a 20-7 victory Friday night.
It was the third straight win for W-G, which is now 3-2 overall and 2-0 in the Northwest Central Conference.
“The defense really stepped up tonight,” W-G coach Gary Spencer said. “We kept the Commodores to under 100 yards on offense.”
Both teams had trouble with traction thanks to wet conditions on the field. Perry struggled on its option ground attack while W-G struggled to run the ball and had to rely more on its passing game for the win.
