NEW BREMEN — The search for a new police chief in the village of New Bremen has been whittled down to a list of three candidates.
Councilors held a special session, during which they entered executive session, before the regularly scheduled council meeting Tuesday night. During the special session, officials interviewed two potential candidates for the police chief post. Councilors then interviewed a third following the regular meeting. New Bremen Mayor Jeff Pape said a decision will not be made until background checks can be completed.

MARYS — Dr. Zoheir Abdelbaki, “Dr. Baki,” chief of cardiology at St. Rita’s Medical Center, discussed risk factors for heart disease with contenders in the Grand Health Challenge Tuesday night in Memorial High School auditorium, covering how to help and heal the heart as well as which risk factors are changeable and which are fixed.

But Bertke overpowered the next three Roughrider hitters to maintain his shutout and steer the Cardinals to a 2-0 win over St. Marys on a blustery Monday night.
