W-G list down to three possibles

October 18, 2011

WAYNESFIELD — Waynesfield-Goshen Board of Education members interviewed three people during an executive session Monday to fill the seat of interim superintendent.
The position is being vacated because Superintendent Joanne Kerekes, who announced her intent to resign and take a position with the state’s Race to the Top program, plans to begin work with the state on Nov. 1.
The three chosen for interviews were from a list of eight candidates who submitted resumes for the position. J. Chris Pfister, Randy Earl, and Susan Miko were all given interviews during the executive session.

Wapakoneta Safety-Service Director Bill Rains informed Wapakoneta City Council members at their meeting Monday that Police Chief Russ Hunlock did not issue any permits for door-to-door salesmen to offer natural gas contracts.
“They tend to get real aggressive,” Rains said, “and we still offer our natural gas aggregation program which is very affordable.”

However, the junior varsity Redskins are showing that the arrival of varsity coach Doug Frye is not just a brief fling.
In relative obscurity, the junior varsity team is following up the varsity squad with some impressive wins of its own.
