Natural disasters left approximately 42 million people homeless last year.
This past weekend, local high school seniors had the opportunity to face homelessness themselves, and now understand what it is like to live outside the comfort of their homes.

Auglaize County Common Pleas Judge Fred Pepple decided to deny a request to sentence Douglas Wine during a bond hearing on Monday, but he did open the door to consider interstate and international travel for employment purposes.

Attendance for the Wapakoneta Noon Optimist October Craft Show matched last year’s total with most of the crowd coming before 1 p.m., the organizer said.
The one-day show also matched the number of vendors who came in 2011.
Noon Optimist member Bonnie Wurst said the 9th annual craft show held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Wapakoneta High School attracted hundreds of shoppers and 75 vendors.
The big difference Wurst noticed was in the variety of vendors this year.
