Sound fiscal policy for the past decade and more paid off, a city elected official says, because city administrators have learned the city is in a stronger position to take advantage of state and federal funds for future street improvement projects.
State Sen. Keith Faber, R-Celina, and state Rep. Jim Buchy, R-Greenville, spoke in detail Wednesday on the need to approve Issue 2 during a public meeting sponsored by the Auglaize County Patriots at the Wapakoneta Eagles.
The issue, which was an attachment to the recently passed budget bill in Ohio, limits some of the negotiating powers for public workers such as policeman, fireman, and teachers. Both legislators immediately came out in support of the issue and dispelled what they called myths about the issue.
A new physician has come back to her home area to practice in a familiar place.
Botkins Local Schools graduate Jamie Szelagowski recently moved back to the area and now works at a local family practice â€” one in which she used to be a patient.
â€śI always knew I wanted to be a doctor,â€ť Szelagowski said, â€śand now I get to work with the doctors I grew up with.â€ť
Szelagowski is the newest physician at Auglaize Family Practice Center, in Wapakoneta, along with physicians she had growing up, Parmie Herman, and George Herman and Deron Horman.
