ACME: Wapak 'walks' past Van Wert

June 24, 2011

It was a wild night Thursday at Wapakoneta High School.
Well, at least for the Van Wert pitching staff.
Wapakoneta took advantage of 10 walks, four wild pitches and three hit batsmen to cruise to a 15-5 five-inning run rule win in an ACME baseball game.
The win snapped a two-game losing streak for Wapak, which is now 10-2.
“After last night (a 7-2 loss to Celina) I wondered if we’d forgot how to play,” Wapak coach Willie Sammetinger said.
Wapak scored its 15 runs on just eight hits and even left eight men on base for the game.

Protocol dilemma

June 24, 2011

In a flash, Wapakoneta EMS personnel watch as a person being transported in a rescue squad jumps out the back door when the vehicle stops for a traffic light at the intersection of Wood and Bellefontaine streets. He flees the scene on foot.
While the Wapakoneta police K-9 tracks the suspect back to his home, the suspect cannot be found.

More traffic taking flight

June 24, 2011

Traffic at the Neil Armstrong Airport, located outside of New Knoxville, has been picking up since spring.
“We’-ve been extremely busy during the last two months,” Neil Armstrong Airport Manager Sean Stroh said. “We’ve seen a huge increase in corporate and agriculture traffic.”
Stroh said while every spring the airport has some increased traffic from crop dusters, this year that number nearly doubled what it would be during an average year.
“More farmers used aerial applications since they were unable to get in the wet fields,” Stroh said.

Drug Dilemma: Area law enforcement struggles to combat 'bath salts'

June 23, 2011

When reflecting on the past couple of months, Wapakoneta Police Chief Russ Hunlock offers this simple maxim about people intending to experiment with “bath salts” — “don’t do it, don’t do it, don’t do it.”
Bath salts, which are a product with no real practical use, are a synthetic hallucinative drug, which can be snorted, injected, ingested or smoked and are legal in Ohio — for now. An amendment to the state’s biennial operations budget bill would make them illegal with its passage.

Boyd to teach dance workshop

June 23, 2011

A local dancing celebrity will be returning home to host a dance workshop to raise funds for his alma mater.
A “Dance Worshop with Kent Boyd” is scheduled be held at 6 p.m. July 12 at Botkins High School with the proceeds to benefit the Botkins Music Boosters.
“It’s a good way to give back to the school,” Kent Boyd’s mother, Lori Boyd said. “Kent was very active in choir in high school.”
Boyd said her son recently held a dance workshop in Fort Wayne, ind., around Easter and she attended the event to help him sell t-shirts. She thought the workshop was a neat idea.
