WAYNESFIELD — Waynesfield-Goshen High School junior Mindy Brookhart is a self-motivator.
A look at her schedule makes it easy for people to believe her.
Brookhart, who has been a football cheerleader since the second grade, is a basketball cheerleader for the first time this year. The daughter of Heidi and Tom Brookhart has two older brothers, Troy, 18, and Paul, 21.
She keeps herself so busy, she spends her spare time just catching up on the necessities of life.
With only a couple hours left on this city worker’s last day, he is checking his notes and going over files.
On Friday, Wapakoneta Engineering Department technician Jim Harpest ignored cutting a cake in his honor and instead reviewed 10 pages of notes he made to help others in the office after he leaves.
An annual children’s holiday event drew hundreds of children and adults to Wapakoneta this weekend, as the event organizer says many factors contributed to the large turnout.
Children made holiday memories to last a lifetime Saturday as they filled downtown Wapakoneta streets during the sixth annual Children’s Hometown Holiday.
“There are huge crowds,” Children’s Hometown Holiday organizer Elaine Poppe said, “more than last year.”
Due to warm weather arriving in the area, Wapakoneta City Schools and St. Marys City Schools are operating on a 2-hour delay this morning. If any changes are announced, they will be posted. Have a safe morning and a good day.
