The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office will be staffing extra patrol during the next couple of weekends in conjunction with prom activities at area high schools.
Patrols will be aimed at reducing traffic crashes, preventing underage alcohol consumption and drug abuse, and other issues that may occur with teenagers celebrating their high school prom.
The goal of the sheriff’s office extra patrol on the road during these times is for teenagers to have a safe and fun experience on what tends to be a memorable night of their high school years, according to the sheriff’s office.
The following prom dates are scheduled at local area high schools: May 3 (Arcadia), May 10 (Liberty-Benton, Van Buren, Vanlue and Findlay) and May 17 (Cory-Rawson and Riverdale).
The sheriff’s office encourages all to be “Safe and Sober” this prom season by buckling up, slowing down and saying “no” to alcohol and drugs.

STAFF WRITER
More than 1,300 volunteers gathered Saturday for a mission trip.
But participants did not have to travel to another country, or even out of state. The annual Backyard Mission Trip started and ended in Findlay and Hancock County.
“We’ve sensed that if we as churches can go to faraway places, we ought to at least work in the shadow of the steeple,” said Backyard Mission Trip co-chairman Bill Reist, pastor of College First Church.
“This gives us a wonderful opportunity to serve both in the city and in the county,” Reist said. “We have (volunteers working) all over Hancock County, primarily in the city, but in the county as well as an opportunity to serve in the name and in the spirit of Christ.”
The annual effort to help others began at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast at the Cube, where the event’s co-chairmen, Reist and Municipal Judge Bob Fry, gathered the volunteers.
Participants then went to 214 project sites, Fry said, to assist “people in need who cannot financially, physically, emotionally keep up their properties. So we’re lending them a helping hand up so they can get some work done around their house, and we can help them out any way that we can.”
Gary Knox led a team of volunteers from East Mount Zion Church and Vanlue Christ Church who built a new wheelchair ramp with handrails for a Findlay home. For Knox, being involved isn’t optional.
“It’s just what the church is supposed to do, period,” he said. “In our prayer this morning, we said we can give money and we can give things and that’s easy. But when we give us, that’s getting involved. I love to get young people involved. I see Richard (the homeowner) and his family, and I bet he’d give anything he has to be down here doing it himself.”
The Backyard Mission Trip is a product of the Findlay Ministerial Association and therefore has substantial church participation.
“We’ve had 29 churches come on board and embrace it this year,” Fry said. “Every year keeps getting bigger and bigger. Last year we had 1,100 volunteers and we worked on 166 (projects). This year we have 1,300 volunteers and we’re working on 214 projects.”
But churches weren’t the only groups participating. Twelve University of Findlay football players, accompanied by head coach Rob Keys, also came out to work. The first project that team did was lift a shed onto cinder blocks so stone could be shoveled under the shed to level it.
When asked why he brought his players out to help, Keys was quick to say they had volunteered.
“I don’t bring them out, they choose,” he said. “I basically open it up to the team and say, ‘Hey, do you guys want to help the community?’ It’s a strictly volunteer basis. This is our fourth year and some of these guys are doing it for their fourth consecutive year.”
Keys said last year, the project the team was working on didn’t get completed in one day, so junior defensive back Harold Jones-Quartey returned to the job site the day after to continue working.
“It’s funny, somebody saw one of our players walking into the Cube today and said, ‘What are you doing here?’ and (the player) said, ‘I’m here to help my community,’” Keys said. “I don’t tell them to, they don’t have to do this. It’s great to give back.”
Keys’ thoughts were echoed by Morgan Greeno of Findlay, who was working on cleaning up debris around a house and garage as part of a city Neighborhood Enhancement and Abatement Team project.
“I believe it’s important to give back to the community if you can,” Greeno said. “There’s people who need help that can’t financially do it or can’t physically do it. I think it’s important for everyone to get involved in their community and give back if they can.”
Greeno’s partner at the project site, Ken Cobb of Findlay, agreed.
“It’s kind of nice to help when you can,” he said.
Greeno and Cobb were looking forward to meeting the homeowners later in the day to discuss what the plans are for the property, now that the debris is cleared.
At the end of the day, volunteers returned to the Cube for a meal.
“There’ll be a time of fellowship,” Fry said, involving both volunteers and homeowners who were helped.
The Backyard Mission Trip ended Saturday, but more community cleanup efforts are ahead.
The United Way of Hancock County will holds its 20th annual “Days of Caring” today through Friday.
Teams of volunteers from local companies and organizations will complete projects for nonprofit agencies in Hancock County that submitted a project request to the United Way.
Last year, 757 volunteers participated.

STAFF WRITER
More than 1,300 volunteers gathered Saturday for a mission trip.
But participants did not have to travel to another country, or even out of state. The annual Backyard Mission Trip started and ended in Findlay and Hancock County.
“We’ve sensed that if we as churches can go to far-away places, we ought to at least work in the shadow of the steeple,” said Backyard Mission Trip co-chairman Bill Reist, pastor of College First Church.
“This gives us a wonderful opportunity to serve both in the city and in the county,” Reist said. “We have (volunteers working) all over Hancock County, primarily in the city, but in the county as well as an opportunity to serve in the name and in the spirit of Christ.”
The annual effort to help others began at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast at the Cube, where the event’s co-chairmen, Reist and Municipal Judge Bob Fry, gathered the volunteers.
Participants then went to 214 project sites, Fry said, to assist “people in need who cannot financially, physically, emotionally keep up their properties. So we’re lending them a helping hand up so they can get some work done around their house, and we can help them out any way that we can.”
Gary Knox led a team of volunteers from East Mount Zion Church and Vanlue Christ Church who built a new wheelchair ramp with hand rails for a Findlay home. For Knox, being involved isn’t optional.
“It’s just what the church is supposed to do, period,” he said. “In our prayer this morning, we said we can give money and we can give things and that’s easy. But when we give us, that’s getting involved. I love to get young people involved. I see Richard (the homeowner) and his family and I bet he’d give anything he has to be down here doing it himself.”
The Backyard Mission Trip is a product of the Findlay Ministerial Association and therefore has substantial church participation.
“We’ve had 29 churches come on board and embrace it this year,” Fry said. “Every year keeps getting bigger and bigger. Last year we had 1,100 volunteers and we worked on 166 (projects). This year we have 1,300 volunteers and we’re working on 214 projects.”
But churches weren’t the only groups participating. Twelve University of Findlay football players, accompanied by head coach Rob Keys, also came out to work. The first project that team did was lift a shed onto cinder blocks so stone could be shoveled under the shed to level it.
When asked why he brought his players out to help, Keys was quick to say they had voluneered.
“I don’t bring them out, they choose,” he said. “I basically open it up to the team and say, ‘Hey, do you guys want to help the community?’ It’s a strictly volunteer basis. This is our fourth year and some of these guys are doing it for their fourth consecutive year.”
Keys said last year, the project the team was working on didn’t get completed in one day, so junior defensive back Harold Jones-Quartey returned to the job site the day after to continue working.
“It’s funny, somebody saw one of our players walking into the Cube today and said, ‘What are you doing here?’ and (the player) said, ‘I’m here to help my community,’” Keys said. “I don’t tell them to, they don’t have to do this. It’s great to give back.”
Keys’ thoughts were echoed by Morgan Greeno of Findlay, who was working on cleaning up debris around a house and garage as part of a city Neighborhood Enhancement and Abatement Team project.
“I believe it’s important to give back to the community if you can,” Greeno said. “There’s people who need help that can’t financially do it or can’t physically do it. I think it’s important for everyone to get involved in their community and give back if they can.”
Greeno’s partner at the project site, Ken Cobb of Findlay, agreed.
“It’s kind of nice to help when you can,” he said.
Greeno and Cobb were looking forward to meeting the homeowners later in the day to discuss what the plans are for the property, now that the debris is cleared.
At the end of the day, volunteers returned to the Cube for a meal.
“There’ll be a time of fellowship,” Fry said, involving both volunteers and homeowners who were helped.
The Backyard Mission Trip ended Saturday, but more community cleanup efforts are ahead.
The United Way of Hancock County will holds its 20th annual “Days of Caring” from Monday through Friday.
Teams of volunteers from local companies and organizations will complete projects for nonprofit agencies in Hancock County that have submitted a project request to the United Way.
Last year, 757 volunteers participated.

Fort Findlay Playhouse ends its season by presenting the classic musical “The Music Man.” The show written by Meredith Willson has many songs everyone will remember, like “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Shipoopi,” “Pick a Little, Talk a Little,” “The Wells Fargo Wagon” and many other tunes that will have you walking out of the theater humming.
It tells the story of Harold Hill, played by Tim Mattis, and Marian Paroo, played by Aeryn Williams, and all the people living the small-town life in River City, Iowa.
Conman Harold Hill comes to River City to find his old friend Marcellus Washburn, played by Patrick Davis, has “gone legit” and is living there. He meets Marian and her little brother Winthrop, played by Jeremy Gobrogge, and attempts to win her over while conning the townspeople out of money by promising to start a band for the boys in town to save them from the dangers of playing pool.
Traveling salesman Charlie Cowell, played by John Garner, tries to reach Mayor Shinn, played by Jim Toth, with evidence that Harold is a conman trying to take the parents’ money, but Marian manages to delay him. Charlie gets to the town ice cream social to denounce Harold as a fraud and what happens then? Well, it is an old-fashioned musical so chances are good there is a happy ending.
The show has a large cast of supporting players, including Bonnie Froelich, Casey Rebal, David Marquart, Dennis Clark, JR Smith, Kennedy Garmong, Laura Butler, Lily Rutledge, Madeline Krinebrink, Maggie Hardesty, Matt Croy, Megan Falter, Samantha Henry, Talyn Foust and Will Quanrud.
The adult Chorus members are Andrew Varney, Andy Rutledge, Carly Powell, Deanna Laney, George Rustemeyer, Hans Hansen, James Foust, Jerry Mathern, Pete Reynolds, Rachel Reynolds, Richele Reynolds and Tammy Stevenson.
The Children’s Chorus includes Dylan Gobrogge, Jenna Gobrogge, Grace Hansen, Josh Trimble, Nick Trimble, Kayla Bates, Maya Trautman, Oliver Bundy, Paul Hansen, Shea McMaster, Sonoma Enyon and Sydney Enyon.
Marty Williams is directing the technical crew and Sandra Agans Krueger is music director. Cathy Williams is the costumer, and Julie Lane is the choreographer, assisted by Vicki Garner.
The show will run May 1-4, 8-11 and 15-18, with performance at 8 p.m., and Sunday shows at 5 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be reserved at the Arts Partnership box office at 419-422-4624.
