ST. MARYS – It was total domination Friday evening for the St. Marys ACME baseball team against previously unbeaten Wapakoneta.
St. Marys got the runs going in the third inning and defeated Wapakoneta 10-0 in five innings at K.C. Geiger Park.
“This season we have been very successful in executing in situations,” St. Marys head coach Alan Huber said. “Sometimes it has been with a hit, sometimes by making the pitcher work or by getting a couple bunts down and forcing some errors.”
ST. MARYS — A local state senator says he hopes three provisions he fought to include in the biennial budget aimed at helping Grand Lake St. Marys make it to the governor’s desk.
State Sen. Keith Faber proposed shifting $4 million of Waterways Safety funds initially earmarked for a marina at Caesar Creek, in Waynesville, to Grand Lake St. Marys for algae mitigation. Faber told The Evening Leader funding from the marina would then come from a capital improvement fund.
WAPAKONETA — A local partnership between an educational center and a Wapakoneta business has lead to the ultimate accomplishment for a program designed for children with autism.

ST. MARYS — The St. Marys Community Youth Center was forced to temporarily close Wednesday because of the loss of its two government-funded positions.
The center previously had two workers from Experience Works, a government-based company, but because of budget cut-backs, when one the workers moved, the position was not filled and the second position was dropped.
“Right now we’re in a bind,” Director Donna Graham said. “We have no one to work here.”
