Now the Wildcats are a win on Friday away from clinching at least a share of the Midwest Athletic Conference title.
ST. MARYS — The Republican primary race for St. Marys Council-at-Large proved to be close as five candidates sought three spots in the November General Election.
According to unofficial results, incumbent Bob Fitzgerald led all vote getters with 731 votes, followed by Todd Fleagle with 619 votes, Dan Uhlenhake with 586 votes, Russ Bailey with 580 votes and Jim Harris with 427 votes. The top three will move on to the November General Election, where they will be unopposed as no Democrats filed to take part in the primary.
ST. MARYS — The much-anticipated and heavily-discussed levy proposed by the St. Marys City School district failed at the polls Tuesday.
According to unofficial results, the operating levy, a 1 percent income tax coupled with a 5-mill property tax, failed by a vote of 2,316 to 1,522. This means that all budget cuts passed by the Board of Education that were contingent upon the levy’s failure will go into effect this fall.
St. Marys Superintendent Shawn Brown did not hide his disappointment as he discussed the future of the district.
Marjorie Borden, 94, of St. Marys, died on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, at Lima Memorial Health System. Arrangements are being completed with the Miller Funeral Homes in St. Marys.
Kenneth A. Henschen, 86, of New Bremen, died at 7:45 p.m. Monday, May 6, 2013, at the Heritage Manor Nursing Center, Minster.
He was born on Sept. 28, 1926, in New Knoxville.
He was the son of Adolph and Lydia (Stienecker) Henschen.
