WAYNESFIELD — After hearing a brief presentation from the village’s engineering consultant, Waynesfield Village Council members elected to proceed with assessments to bring natural gas to the village — but not without objection.

Several recent complaints from county residents about exploding targets prompted the Auglaize County sheriff to issue a statement today warning of the problems they pose.
The targets are designed to explode when shot with a certain caliber rifle. Also known by the name brand Tannerite, the targets are legally purchased at shooting supply stores.
“What we have discovered recently is target shooters are purchasing the mixture and mixing large amounts to make a huge explosion,” Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon said.

“On behalf of the YMCA, we are grateful of Dominion Gas for recognizing our child care program,” Wapakoneta Family YMCA CEO Joshua Little said.
