High request shows need

December 8, 2011

The Auglaize County engineer submitted a figure he did not expect to get when he requested more than $10.4 million for his 2012 budget.
His appeal stressed the county’s need.
The request is approximately $5 million more than the revenue in the Motor Vehicle and Gasoline Tax Fund for 2011.
“I know I’m not going to get it, but this is to reflect the need,” county Engineer Doug Reinhart told the Auglaize County Commissioners during his budget hearing on Wednesday. “I do this every year. It looks like I’m asking for the world, but we need it.”

BASKETBALL: Improved 'Skins to host Ada

December 8, 2011

At first glance, the opening weekend of the Wapakoneta Redskins varsity boys basketball season looks a lot like the opening weekend a year ago — a win over a not-so-good Piqua team on Friday followed by a loss to a very good Fort Recovery squad on Saturday.

At first glance.

To anyone who was actually paying attention, however, this is not the same Redskins team.

With as many as four sophomores starting at times and with Alex Greve sidelined by an injury, the 2010-2011 Wapak team went on to lose 11 of its next 12 games.

Old fashioned but delicious

December 7, 2011

Bazaars are the best kind of holiday gatherings. These sweet events are a showcase of taste-tempting, time-tested favorites.
As December kicks off, so do holiday bazaars. One of note is United Methodist Women's annual Christmas Bazaar in Merced, Calif. That this church tradition is in its 81st year is impressive. What's more remarkable is that the grand dame of this event will be 98 years old in January.

Extra primary expected to raise election board costs

December 7, 2011

Staffing, supplies and services needed for two required primaries in the spring led to the Auglaize County Election Board’s request for $100,000 more in its 2012 budget.
“Hopefully it won’t be that much,” Auglaize County Elections Board Director Carolyn Campbell said.
The increase to $360,973 is 38 percent more than the board’s budget this year.
“Cut it where you will and we’ll work around it,” Campbell said of the budget.

WRESTLING: 'Skins win WBL opener

December 7, 2011

The Wapakoneta Redskins bounced back from a disappointing start to the varsity wrestling season to post a 46-34 win over the Van Wert Cougars on Tuesday at Wapakoneta High School.

Wapak struggled in the Findlay Trojan Duals on Saturday. But the young Redskins squad showed resilience in the Western Buckeye League dual-meet opener.

“We improved a lot from Saturday,” Redskins varsity coach Jason Rostorfer said. “It was the first time a lot of these freshmen got to wrestle varsity, so they were a little nervous and apprehensive. ...
