They came from all walks of life a retired farmer, a telephone supervisor, two former nurses, a recent high school graduate, a construction volunteer, a former doctor, a teacher, a car mechanic, a McDonald's employee and two partner family members. They found themselves united in purpose and resolute to work together as a team. On that particular Saturday they installed dry wall in the new Firelands Habitat for Humanity house.

GREENWICH - The South Central Board of Education Monday night accepted a proposal for a high school parking lot in conjunction with the drainage problem. It will provide 107 parking spaces, including five handicap spots in front of the high school where there is now a large lawn. The plan will eliminate parking in the rear of the school and also eliminate 21 parking spaces on the north side of the high school drive, opening that area for the buses to drop students off at the front door of the high school. Board Member Jeff Oney of the building and grounds committee reported on the need for a half-time custodian. The position had been eliminated several years ago and at the February meeting custodian Herschel Honeycutt asked if it was possible to again fill that position.
