Engraver Opens Shop

July 5, 2013

MINSTER — Connie Seger, of Fort Loramie, will open a laser engraving business on Main Street in Minster this month, a retirement business she hopes will keep her busy, and, if nothing else, support itself in the next few years.

Seger took up engraving after she learned woodworking seven years ago from her husband and father-in-law, who spent most of their free time in the activity.

“I thought, If I want to spend time with my husband, I have to do this,” she said, adding that she spent a lot of time cutting deers with a band saw.

NK BOE Takes First Levy Step

July 2, 2013

NEW KNOXVILLE — New Knoxville Board of Education members unanimously voted in a special meeting Monday night to move forward with the first steps to continue a 1 percent, five-year income tax levy passed in 2009.

While the levy wouldn’t change what the voters were currently paying, the revenue accounts for approximately $461,000 — an estimated 11 percent of the total school general fund. While the current income tax doesn’t run out until the end of 2014, board members thought it best to consider getting it on the ballot as soon as possible.

July 1, 2013

ST. MARYS — St. Marys schools will receive an additional $612,000 in 2014 and $646,000 in 2015 according to the state’s newly minted biennial budget, bringing the school out of deficit spending, said Superintendent Shawn Brown this morning.

“We’re going to take a look at it, the treasurer’s going to look at it, and see if it has strings attached,” Brown said. “It doesn’t make up for the number of reductions over the last few years.”

Rider Likes Challenges

June 28, 2013

ST. MARYS — Senior Garrett Hower, 17, likes to be different.

When his friends challenged him into getting a mohawk, he did it without hesitation. When he decided to join a winter sport, he chose wrestling. Surprisingly, even to him, wrestling became his life in eighth-grade.

Hower said he enjoys the fact that although he is a part of a team, people will remember his wins even if the team does not do well collectively.
