The St. Marys girls tennis team closed out the home portion of their schedule with a 3-2 loss to Bluffton on Monday.
St. Marys has lost three straight home matches by that narrow 3-2 score, with a doubles match making the difference.
“It was a familiar script,” St. Marys head coach Brice Brenneman said. “That was a pretty solid first doubles team we were going up against and we had things going our way, but it slipped away from us.”
NEW BREMEN — The first six children gathered for Paws 2 Read Monday at New Bremen Public Library, with even more children on the waiting list for the chance to read to a registered therapy dog.
The idea is that for struggling readers in kindergarten through second grade, reading out loud in front of a class can be a stressful. Reading with a therapy dog, on the other hand, gives students a chance to practice without fear of making mistakes.
“The dogs listen, and don’t tease, laugh or judge,” Branch Supervisor Shelly Parker said.
Werner W. Stelzer, 93, of Celina, passed away on Monday, Sept. 23, 2013, at Heritage Manor Nursing Center in Minster.
Born on Feb. 5, 1920, in Carthagena, the son of John and Bernadina (Wuebker) Stelzer.
He married Rosella R. “Sally” Bergman on April 27, 1946, and she preceded him in death on Dec. 27, 1990.
Surviving are his daughter and son-in-law, Nancy and Russ Harting of Minster; a grandson; two great-grandson; a brother; two sisters.
Harold J. Baumann, 75, of Kenmore, N.Y., a retired Buffalo school teacher, died on Thursday, Sept. 20, 2013, in hospice, at the Beechwood residence.

CELINA — Both teams seemed on the cusp of breaking through on Saturday night. Instead, the St. Marys and Celina boys soccer teams played to a scoreless tie for the second straight season.
Shots rattled off the crossbar, goalkeepers soared through the air to make vital saves and both St. Marys and Celina — after waiting two extra days to renew their rivalry — ended up waiting all 80 minutes for a goal that never appeared.
