March 4, 2014

An ordinance allowing the director of public service and safety to persue bids for the city’s refuse and recycling service didn’t even make it first reading Monday night as councilors voted to table the ordinance.

At-Large Councilman Randy Fisher was the most vocal opponent of the measure.

“I’m unhappy with this ordinance,” Fisher said. “We have a revenue problem and we shouldn’t heap it on the refuse department.”

Young readers sharpen skills on four-legged listeners

March 3, 2014

A new children’s program will establish itself on Monday, March 17, at the Auglaize County Public Library.

The idea behind the program is to give young readers an opportunity to read to someone who won’t judge, tease or laugh, just listen.

The perfect match to fit that criteria happens to have four legs and a wet nose.

Through Paws2Read, the library hopes to create a positive, nonthreatening, fun environment for children in grades K-2 who may be struggling or reluctant with reading.

Teaching is in her blood

March 3, 2014

For Waynesfield-Goshen Spanish teacher Kyley Richardson, teaching is in her blood.

Her mom is in her 24th year of teaching and is currently a fourth-grade teacher at Wapakoneta Elementary school. Her grandfather also taught for 35 years before retiring.

“I grew up with my mom teaching and she still loves her job and she was a good mentor to me,” Richardson said. “Experiencing her joys when she was teaching and all the stories she would come home and tell me showed me that that’s what I wanted to do.”

Bowling just 4 the health of it

March 3, 2014

Local youth expressed an interest in bowling and fitness during the Noon Optimist Club’s annual “Bowling 4 the Health of It” event on Sunday at Astro Lanes.

Community Service Youth Committee Chair Connie Krites said the bowling event is one of many health-focused programs the “friend of youth” provides to the community.

“It’s to give the kids a fun activity to do, something that’s healthy — especially working on childhood obesity,” Krites said. “That’s a big issue for our kids.”
