Wapak teacher retires, continue career at WTLW

June 8, 2011

For one retiring Wapakoneta High School teacher, he enjoyed working with the students on their English skills.
“For the most part, the kids were very nice,” retiring Wapakoneta retiring teacher Mike Schepp said. “They were fun to work with and deal with.”
Those are two things that 32 years boiled down to for Schepp, one of five teachers recently honored upon their retirement from the Wapakoneta City Schools district.
Schepp, who is a Lima native and still lives there, said the small town atmosphere found in Wapakoneta is special.

The fallacy of the five-inning “mercy” rule is the use of the word “mercy.”
The merciful thing to do would have been to end this one a lot sooner than five innings.

June 7, 2011

TRACK: W-G relay wins state title

June 6, 2011

COLUMBUS — It was almost over before it had barely begun.
Now it is over.
And the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers girls 400-meter relay team is the fastest in the land.
The Tigers erased the memory of an almost disastrous district preliminary race that could have ended their tournament run with a dominant performance in the Division III state final Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus.
W-G’s foursome of senior Abbey Gray, junior Morgan Horn, senior Frankie James and junior Ivy Horn was virtually flawless.
“Our handoffs were probably the best they’ve ever been,” Gray said.
