Wal-Mart honors Wapak teachers with grants

October 8, 2011

As part of a national program, 10 Wapakoneta Elementary School teachers each received $100 gift cards to use in their classrooms.
Throughout the country, Wal-Mart plans to award $4.5 million to 45,000 teachers with teacher reward certificates as part of the annual program.
Each year, Wal-Mart stores are to honor local teachers of kindergarten through eighth-grades with the gift cards. Last year, Cridersville teachers received the cards, which are treated as grants, while this year it was Wapakoneta’s turn, Wapakoneta Wal-Mart Community Involvement Coordinator Martha Steinbrugge said.

Wapa Theatre to enter digital age

October 8, 2011

The change is being made due to the industry completely switching over to digital from 35mm film. The transition is expected to be completely finished by October 2012.
“This will enable us to get more first-run movies,” theater manager Becky Jordan said. “However, we do have to raise the prices to be able to stay open. The equipment alone for the upgrades will cost $85,000.”
