NEW KNOXVILLE — New Knoxville’s new barber, Scott Limbert, set up his shop after moving to the area from North Carolina, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t local.
The Botkins native said he and his wife, who is from Maria Stein, moved back to the area after their daughter Makaylee was born to be near family, and now live in rural Minster.
“It’s nice moving back and being closer,” he said. “Distance plays a factor when you have a family.”
ST. MARYS — Senior Roughrider Austin Reynolds, 18, has a passion for music.
Reynolds participates in both the St. Marys All Brass Band and the Symphonic Band, for which he plays the tuba.
