ST. MARYS — With tears and moments of reflection and song, a county agency recognized the county’s top senior citizen Tuesday during its annual celebration.

An area family has been spending months preparing for festivities that may become a fall family tradition.
Julie and Matthew Gossard, and their children, Mercedez, 13, and Caesar, 11, soon will be welcoming the community to their home during the grand opening of Furry Tail Farm Saturday.

Items have been reported stolen from two more vehicles left unlocked in Wapakoneta.
Wapakoneta Police Clerk Denise Kohler said more vehicles may have been entered, but people are not filing reports, especially if the thieves did not get away with anything and only ransacked the insides looking for items to steal.
“We are actively still working on this,” Kohler said. “We do have some people of interest.”
