Ruling favors city

May 6, 2013

A federal arbitrator ruled last week to uphold a decision by Wapakoneta city administrators to demote a Wapakoneta Fire Department captain after determining the firefighter lied about talking to city councilors regarding the purchase of a new fire truck.

Former Capt. Tom Stinebaugh and his union representative claim his 1st Amendment right of free speech was violated and Stinebaugh has retained an attorney to file a federal civil suit against the city.

Tourists in their own hometown

May 6, 2013

While one family lives in Wapakoneta, there were a few local historical sites the Hasting family had never visited.

The “Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown” event during the weekend encouraged them to do so.

“It sounded interesting and we get to see some local places we have never been to before,” said Susan Hasting, who visited seven of the 12 sites with her husband, Steve, and their children, Danielle, 11, and Trevor, 7.

The family made all their stops Saturday, although the sites could be visited Saturday or Sunday.
