She taught science at Washington Local Schools, her alma mater, and then moved to Erie-Mason where she became a curriculum and information technology director. During that time she started sharing weather duties with another meteorologist at FOX Toledo.
A pair of Toledo-area products saw time on the field in Saturday’s spring game. Chris Wormley, a Whitmer graduate, played on the defensive line after missing the fall because of surgery to repair a torn ACL. “Chris was a little tentative early in the spring, but I think he’s really had a good spring,” head coach Brady Hoke said. “His recovery, his confidence, and all those things are really good.”
Washington Local also went from a 25 percent funding increase to 6 percent in the competing plans, but Treasurer Jeff Fouke brushed off the changes. “I never expected to get that 25 percent increase,” he said. “This happens every two years. You get the proposal, everyone gets excited, and then it changes.” He too was more interested in getting a firm budget in place so he could plan for the future.
U.S. Rep. Bob Latta (R., Bowling Green) honored four students Saturday for their entries to his congressional district art competition. The winner was Dana Richards, a junior at Whitmer High School, for her pencil drawing, Hopes and Dreams, which will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol tunnel for a year.
When it came time to select a new boys basketball coach at Whitmer High School to replace Bruce Smith, athletic director Tom Snook said the school followed the formula it used last year for football. Whitmer stayed in house, choosing assistant coach Ryan Brown, who served the past three seasons with the varsity team under Smith.
Aaron Sage, athletic trainer for Whitmer High School in Toledo, believes concussions are under-reported and this new law is just what the doctor ordered. "I think this is doing a good job of making everyone aware of the long-term consequences and making sure, helping, to ensure the safety of our athletes," said Sage. Headache, confusion and nausea are just a few symptoms of a concussion. Sage says the new law is designed to help protect athletes from being forced to return to their sport too soon. "The longer I'm in the profession, the better the education is, the more information we have, and coaches make better decisions. And hopefully parents now, with this new law, can help us make great decisions to protect their kids," said Sage.
With that being the case, Colatruglio said he's looking forward to coaching the two quarterbacks on his roster, Kyle Kempt from Massillon, an Oregon State recruit, and Toledo Whitmer's Nick Holley. "Kempt is a prototypical pro-looking quarterback, 6-5, cannon for an arm," Colatruglio described. Holley is 6-foot tall, more of a runner and a tough kid. It makes it really fun to call plays."
Nick Holley hopes his future football career at Kent State University includes more meaningful games than the one he played Saturday. It's unlikely, however, that he'll ever play in a game more memorable. Less than 24 hours after learning his mother had passed away, Holley helped the North to a 33-27 win over the South in the Division I-III game at the 68th annual OHSFCA North-South Classic at Dayton's Welcome Stadium.
Toledo Whitmer quarterback Nick Holley (Kent State) rushed for 68 yards on 11 carries for the North Team. The North Defensive MVP was Cleveland Glenville linebacker Chris Worley (Ohio State), who had six tackles.
From January through March more than 15,000 speed and red light tickets have been issued. 406 drivers have run red lights at Secor and Alexis. The camera at Alexis and Whitmer caught nearly 3,000 drivers going faster than the posted 40 mph speed limit.
