Towering leaders

Leaders-in-Action

Participants at the Leaders in Action Day Monday at the Bellefontaine First Church of God, 1000 E. Brown Ave., create balloon towers that nearly stretched to the ceiling of the gymnasium during team-building activities led by Jim Sextone from YMCA Camp Willson. High school students from Bellefontaine, Benjamin Logan, Indian Lake, Riverside, Calvary Christian and the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center attended the day-long annual event, where they divided into groups based on their results from a career questionnaire and also heard from local leaders. The Midwest Regional Educational Service Center coordinated the leadership program that began in 2001, and the Bellefontaine Rotary Club has sponsored the event for the past three years.

Fourteen-month-old Malcolm Long listens with fascination as Miss Marie Spinosa and other members of Professor Louie and the Crowmatix belt out a blues tune Thursday evening in the front dining room of 600 Downtown pizzeria. The restaurant donated 50 percent of the profits from its fourth anniversary event to the Holland Theatre, where the Grammy nominated Woodstock, N.Y., band was started by Aaron “Professor Louie” Hurwitz (on accordion) and performs a full set beginning at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Holland. Tickets are available at the door for $12 or $17 per seat. “Professor Louie” worked nearly two decades with The Band and its individual members. (EXAMINER PHOTO | REUBEN MEES)
