City establishes incentives to attract new business

August 16, 2011

Wapakoneta councilors unanimously agreed Monday night to establish incentives to attract new businesses by designating a community reinvestment area.
The City of Wapakoneta Reinvestment Area was incorporated as the municipal corporation of the city in its entirety.

The investment area also is to allow for abatements for remodeling existing residential dwellings. However, councilor Tom Finkelmeier said the primary focus of the move was made to initiate jobs.

Support and success go hand-in-hand for owners

August 16, 2011

Jeff and Mary Monfort were operating McDonald’s restaurants out west for some time when a unique opportunity arose for them to open stores in Wapakoneta and Celina in 1995.
That chance has turned into opportunity for many others beyond the thriving business-owning pair that has since opened restaurants in Coldwater and St. Marys as well.
Perhaps the couple’s business motto has been what has led to their success.

Turkeys make first showing at county fair

August 15, 2011

Until this year, the Auglaize County Junior Fair had not hosted an event showing the Meleagris gallopavo. A local poultry club decided to give tradition up “cold turkey.”
While the junior fair had hosted an event for breeding turkeys in the past, market turkeys had never been shown at the fair. That is, until this year.
By the way, for those curious, Meleagris gallopavo is the scientific name for wild turkey, which domestic turkeys are descended.
Jim Nowicki, president of the Western Ohio Poultry Club (WOPC), said the event was overdue.
