BUCKLAND — A back-up generator for the proposed wastewater treatment plant is likely to come to the village of Buckland free of charge, courtesy of the U.S. military.
Buckland Police Chief Randy Trayer informed Buckland Mayor Dan Lambert that he is permitted to use the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), a government agency used for the procurement of extra military equipment including guns and equipment. Military operations primarily use the agency, but state and local governments also are permitted to use the DLA for safety services.
WAYNESFIELD — Winning the school spelling bee once during an academic career would be quite an accomplishment.
Graham Knerr, 9, of Waynesfield-Goshen Local Schools, says he would like to go for a clean sweep.
Knerr, a fourth-grader, knocked out 19 other students to win the Waynesfield-Goshen School spelling bee and to qualify for the regional competition to be held in Lima March 23.
He won the competition by first spelling “humility,” and then following it up by spelling “eruption” to take home the title.
