AG Breakfast to be held March 21

To celebrate agriculture and honor local producers, local Ag Agencies and sponsors are celebrating National Agriculture Week by hosting an Agriculture Community Breakfast.  The 2014 Breakfast will be held on Friday, March 21, at 8 a.m. at St John Lutheran Church in Oak Harbor. The cost for the all-you-can-eat scrambled egg, pancake and ham breakfast is $5. The event is not just for the agricultural community, but is open to all individuals and businesses that eat meat, fruit, vegetables and bread, items grown by farmers. 

The featured speaker will be Bruce McPheron, Vice President of Agricultural Administration and Dean of The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Proceeds from the breakfast go back into the agricultural community through various scholarships.  These scholarships will be awarded on the 21 at the breakfast.  For more information about the scholarships, call Kathy Booher at 419-898-3631.  For tickets to the breakfast, contact the Ottawa Soil and Water Conservation District at 419-898-1595.

Oak Harbor girls fall in district finals in heartbreaking fashion

  • Published in Sports

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. Bucyrus Wynford found that out on Saturday. In a back-and-forth game that featured two ties and three lead changes in the closing minutes, Oak Harbor girls lost, 40-37, when Wynford’s Meghan Harrer’s desperation three-pointer at the buzzer gave the Royals the victory in the Division III District Finals last Saturday at Seneca East High School in Attica.

The Rockets, who finish the season at 20-5, fought valiantly, playing virtually the entire game without guard Emma Barney before rallying from a seven-point deficit to take the lead late in the fourth quarter. Entering the final quarter trailing, 25-22, Oak Harbor fell behind by six before rallying to take a 35-34 lead on two free throws by Andrea Cecil with 2:21 remaining. 

However, Cecil fouled out at the 1:55 mark on a questionable call when she was whistled for a foul on Wynford’s Brenna Quinn. Quinn connected on 1-of-2 free throws to tie the score at 35.
