MONROEVILLE - When fans and players arrive at Monroeville High School today for the Firelands Conference volleyball showdown between the Lady Eagles and St. Paul Lady Flyers, they might think they've entered a new varsity gymnasium. That is because the 60-year-old gym has a newly repainted floor and walls. Topping off the refurbishments: The words "In Loving Memory of Mary Wilhelm" emblazoned onto a memorial plaque on the floor. The newly redone floor serves to memorialize Wilhelm, the late mother of three who either attended or currently attend Monroeville High School and participate in athletics.

If Dana Traczek can't think of anything to make for dinner, she simply consults the green piece of paper on her refrigerator. On it, she lists meals she knows she has the ingredients to fix. And if the 34-year-old Norwalk resident exhausts the list, she simply consults her cookbooks for more recipes. Such a system can come in handy with a husband and three children to feed. Traczek, a hair stylist at Christian Roberts Salon and Spa, makes dinner for her and her family four nights a week. She lives with her husband, Steve and sons Daniel, 3, Ben, 6, and Tommy, 9. Daniel attends Christian Day Nursery School, while Ben and Tommy attend Pleasant Elementary. Steve Traczek works for Glidden Paint Center in Huron.

He ended up shooting 88 for 18 holes.
