West Bank will be made into a grassy, stump-free area
By William Kincaid
CELINA - Grand Lake St. Marys State Park Manager David Faler said some of his staff and Ohio Department of Transportation employees likely will begin next week to remove the remaining felled trees on the west bank.
However, it's going to take a long time before the once tree-lined west bank slope is converted into a graded, stump-free grassy area, Faler told Grand Lake Rotarians on Thursday morning during an update about efforts to protect Grand Lake's earthen dams. [More]

After state final loss, Russia's Puthoff brings game-winning hit ball to Minster senior
By Colin Foster
Minster's Jon Niemeyer was the reason Russia left the field heartbroken after the Division IV state baseball final.
From that moment came a heartwarming story.
On June 3, Niemeyer's single in the bottom of the seventh inning allowed Jared Huelsman to score the winning run in a 2-1 victory over the Raiders at Huntington Park in Columbus. The hit gave the Wildcats their third state title in the last seven years and also denied the Raiders their first title since 1971. [More]
