NEW BREMEN — After serving 33 years as the Village of New Bremen police chief, Doug Harrod announced his retirement Tuesday night, effective March 31.
“After 33 years of working for the village, I’ve decided that it’s time to retire,” Harrod told councilors at their meeting Tuesday night. “I’ve given it a lot of thought and a lot of things have went into this decision, but I think it’s time that I move on and have another part of my life.”
ST. MARYS — Ghouls, goblins, princesses and even Pac-Man took over downtown St. Marys as part of an annual tradition.
The St. Marys Rotary Club Halloween Parade brought a variety of costumed children downtown. In addition to the annual parade, a costume contest allowed children to compete in categories ranging from prettiest and ugliest to most original and couples.
In year’s past, cold and blustery conditions greeted parade participants. However, this year, early morning showers gave way to a clear, warm night.
