ST. MARYS — Coldwater’s sophomores have made quite an impression on head baseball coach Brian Harlamert early in the season. Friday night was no different.
Coldwater sophomore back-up catcher Blake Spangler had a key two-run pinch hit single that opened the floodgates for the Coldwater offense while sophomore pitcher Greg Gilliland tossed five one-hit, shutout innings to lead the Cavaliers to an 11-0 win over the Roughriders on Friday night at K.C. Geiger Park.

ST. MARYS — Angela Hamberg, with New Bremen Economic Development, discussed a shortage of skilled labor in the region at St. Marys Community Library’s Businessperson Breakfast Thursday morning.
The goal of economic development, she said, is to attract, retain and expand the number of people and businesses in the area.
In a village like New Bremen, manufacturing jobs are unfilled for two reasons — first because of a drug problem, but second, and more importantly, because of a lack of workers with the skills to fill the positions.
