ICS students honor winter with snowflakes

The first graders and preschoolers at Immaculate Conception School embraced winter by making wonderful snowflakes lasts week. The 3 and 4 year olds created flakes by spraying them with a liquid paint. The icy masterpieces now line the hallway of the school. Miss Mary Heshel and Miss Michelle Wojciechowski assisted with the project.  

The first graders of I.C.S. also honored winter at their monthly theme day yesterday. The group made wonderfully huge and intricate snowflakes by twisting paper, drank hot chocolate, created snowman note cards, and made seedy treats for their backyard birds. Mrs. Rita McNutt, first grade teacher, comes up with the activities to usher in the changing seasons and invites family members of the students to join in the day of interactive learning.

Oak Harbor’s Witt vs the heavyweights at KSU

Keith Witt won a Division II state wrestling title at 171 pounds for Oak Harbor in 2008.

When he arrived on the Kent State campus a few months later to wrestle for the Golden Flashes, high school suddenly felt like a distant memory. His weight ballooned to 220 pounds his freshman year and he ended up redshirting that season.

“I was really out of shape,” said Witt, now a fifth-year senior. “I was training with the team all year round. I wasn’t in my top form. It was my first year of college and my body wasn’t in the best form it could be. It wasn’t like I gained any good weight. I was dumpy and not in the best shape.”

Thank you to Magruder Hospital and staff

Unfortunately I ran into some physical problems recently, necessitating a  week’s stay in Magruder Hospital.  Fortunately, I can say that I had the absolute best of care.  Starting with the PC EMS, to the Emergency room personnel, on to the Radiology and Cardiology Departments everyone was competent and professional.  The Nursing staff,-especially nurse Robin,  those in Occupational and Physical Therapy explained what they were doing so there were no surprises.  My room was cleaned by a competent housekeeping staff daily.
