Kasich - joined by Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, State Rep. Jim Buchy, R-Greenville, and State Sen. Keith Faber, R-Celina - spoke at Coldwater Machine Co. to local politicians and community leaders as part of a Get Out the Vote campaign. [More]

CELINA - Wapakoneta needed a win on Monday to claim the Western Buckeye League boys soccer title.
Celina was ready to play the role of spoiler.
The Bulldogs led 2-1 at the half before Wapak scored with 25 minutes left in the match to tie the match. The Celina defense held against a furious Redskins' attack in the final minutes to preserve a 2-2 tie at the soccer stadium. [More]
