Rider Looks to Future

April 26, 2013

ST. MARYS — If senior Charlie Eberle, 18, had to describe his final year at Memorial High School in a phrase, “living it up” would hit the mark.

Eberle and his friends made a promise of sorts to each other to make the most of the end of their high school careers and do things they had never done before. They collectively decided to be a part of the high school’s winter musical. A football player, Eberle had never set foot near a stage before this year.

“We stepped out of our comfort zone a little bit,” he said.

Teachers Learn Connecting Techniques

NEW BREMEN — Colleen Zunk, who works with autistic young people, says the difference between average preschool age children and autism spectrum students is a lack of social and communication skills.

“Generally a child who has autism spectrum disorder...(is) disconnected from other people  and unable to interact with people and objects,” she said. “Instead of playing with a toy the way they normally would, the child uses the object in a way that stimulates the senses.”

A Wish Comes True

April 26, 2013

ST. MARYS — For St. Marys resident Courtney Roby, 17, this week was a little bit of sunshine in what has proven to be an impossibly difficult year.

In July 2012, doctors discovered Roby had a brain tumor. She had been having headaches five or six months earlier, her mother, Chasity Buchanan, said. She took Courtney to the chiropractor, who didn’t find anything serious. When they persisted, Buchanan scheduled Roby for a consultation at Dayton Children’s Medical Center. Roby never left the hospital that day.
