CELINA — For the third time in four years, the Governor's Cup Regatta has been canceled.
Citing a lack of financial support from sponsors, organizers of the boat race on Grand Lake St. Marys pulled the plug on this year's event. The event was canceled in 2010 because of algae issues on the lake and in 2012 because of water depth concerns.
Despite the series of recent cancellations, organizers have said they hope the regatta will be brought back in the future.
WAPAKONETA — A 17-year-old Wapakoneta girl was killed in a crash Thursday afternoon along Ohio 501.
According to a report from the Wapakoneta Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Emily Ann Saam, 17, was driving a 2000 Dodge Durango south on Ohio 501, just north of Linzee Road. Saam's vehicle drifted off the eastside of the road and struck a tree. The impact with the tree caused severe damage to the Durango and sparked a small fire.
