NEW KNOXVILLE — The New Knoxville Village Councilors met Tuesday for their monthly meeting to approve a contract with American Municipal Power (AMP) to purchase 300 kilowatts in the AFEC project and declared it an emergency.
Village Administrator Rex Katterheinrich said the 300 kilowatt purchase was on the conservative side because the recommendation from AMP was for 900 intermediate kilowatts.
“We felt the best way to go was to err on the conservative side because it’s intermediate power,” Katterheinrich said.

CELINA â€” Erica Gelhaus leads the six, small girls gathered at the Richardson Bretz Building, pulsing her arms in a beat, as the children breathe in, breathe out, then pant like a dog.
The breathing exercises are to warm up their vocal chords, Gelhaus tells the children. The former Miss Ohio and St. Henry native also explains to the children how their vocal chords vibrate â€” whether it be fast or slow â€” to create high and low notes. Itâ€™s all part of â€śSingers on Stage,â€ť a new Arts in the Parks program presented by Arts Place.
CELINA â€” Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey announced Tuesday the arrest of three more subjects on drug trafficking charges.
