A Wapakoneta man was among six Auglaize County residents as well as one Celina man arrested for trafficking in drugs, Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office officials announced this morning.
Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon said the arrests were the result of a recent investigation by the Auglaize-Mercer County Grand Lake Drug Task Force, in conjunction with the St. Marys, Wapakoneta and Minster police departments.
“We Ended In Disaster” indeed sounds like a cool name for a band that straddles pop, punk and metal sounds and fits in perfectly with a genre of music known for its other nefarious group names, such as Against All Authority, the Dead Milkmen, and Gorilla Biscuits. However, in contrast to some of those famous names, the name of the local band based out of Wapakoneta came from true happenings amongst its members.
“It has inspirational meaning to us,” said Ben Gardner, 20, the lead guitarist of the band.
A local seventh-grader has a passion for cars.
In his spare time, Wapakoneta Middle School student Jerry Wright can be driving his RC cars.
“I do competitions with them,” Wright said of the remote control cars. “Dad’s Toy Shop holds a ‘Fun Run’ and I go there every summer.”
Wright said at these competitions, the hobbyists drive their cars around and see whose car can jump the highest.
Wright, who has a total of five RC cars, races them outside.
