WAYNESFIELD â Waynesfield Police Chief Nathan Motter proposed a village-wide ordinance to ban the use, possession and sale of synthetic drugs within village limits during Mondayâs Waynesfield Village Council meeting.
The goal of the legislation is to ban the substance which has become known as âbath salts,â a recreational hallucinative drug which has become a problem in the county since the beginning of the year.
An area theatre group has been practicing hard for the past five weeks and has been putting the final touches on their upcoming musical.
The Waynesfield-Goshen Muchinippi Theatre presents âSeussical,â this Friday and Saturday beginning at 7 p.m. in the Waynesfield-Goshen School Auditeria.
The company picked this musical because their idea was to involve as many children as possible.
âWe try to, in the summer, involve as many children as we can,â co-producer Pat Noykos said. âWe have something where the kids can participate.â
