Many families tune into the Disney Christmas parade as a Christmas morning tradition, but this year, a few local dancers will â€śDance the Magic.â€ť
Three dancers â€” Madison Sams, Dylan Snyder and Olivia Tregoning â€” from The Dance CentrĂ©, of Wapakoneta, will be performing at Walt Disney World in Florida in the Dance the Magic Parade onÂ Dec. 5-8.Â After submitting their auditions of a Disney-choreographed dance routine, the girls were chosen to participate in two major events in Disney World.Â
Four years ago, one Wapakoneta woman had yet to precision cut her first piece of wood with a scroll saw.
On Saturday Vickie Schaub manned a booth selling her creations at the Wapakoneta Noon Optimist Craft Show held in the Wapakoneta High School cafeteria and gymnasium.
â€śThis is my first time having a booth anywhere,â€ť Schaub said, sitting at the end of a table in the middle of gymnasium. â€śI think I am doing OK.â€ť
Within a 30-minute walk of downtown Wapakoneta, an Ohio professor says someone within that radius is involved in or has been affected by human trafficking.
With an extensive highway system, a high number of truck stops, close proximity to Canada and a high poverty rate, Ohio is one of the most vulnerable states in the United States for human trafficking, University of Dayton political science professor Anthony Talbott said Sunday during an hour-long presentation on human trafficking at the St. Joseph Parish Life Center.
