CELINA - Longtime Celina Municipal Court Bailiff LeRoy Felver is retiring for a second time on Dec. 31, closing the door on a nearly 50-year-career with the city.
Felver, 70, a graduate of Willshire High School and the State Highway Patrol Police Academy, began his career as a member of the Celina Police Department auxiliary before joining the force in 1965. He worked his way up the ranks and was named chief of police in the early '80s. [More]

COLDWATER - Tips from the public and a Facebook posting by the victim led to the arrest today of a Celina couple for allegedly breaking into a rural livestock business Sunday morning.
Charged with breaking and entering were Shannon K. Myers, 23, and Jordan M. Schaffer, 21, both of 310 Jill Ave, lot 209. The crime is a fifth-degree felony; each suspect could face up to a year of incarceration and a $2,500 fine. Other charges may follow, authorities said. [More]

Gelhaus reached the 1,000-point mark for his career in the first quarter, but the Tigers gave the Indians fits in the second quarter before Fort Recovery cranked up the intensity in the second half on the way to a 71-42 win on Tuesday night in Auglaize County. [More]
