ST. MARYS — The city of St. Marys will have a familiar face serving as its interim safety-service director.
St. Marys Mayor Pat McGowan told The Evening Leader Eric Ostling is no longer the safety-service director for the city, effective immediately. St. Marys Police Chief Greg Foxhoven will serve as interim safety-service director. Ostling was hired in October to succeed Jason Little, who was hired in March but announced his resignation in August.
ST. MARYS — St. Marys resident Barb Lutz surpassed the 2,000 workout mark at the local Curves, where she has been going for the past 11 years.
“I started out of curiosity to begin with,” Lutz said. “I had a free pass to try it out for two weeks, and I asked my best friend and she and I came out, and we never quit.”
Lutz and her friend work out at Curves at 6:30 a.m. every weekday. The Curves program is not like a typical gym, where there are weight machines and members are on their own to pick and choose what to do.
