BUCYRUS, OH – Over the past several years, the Bucyrus City School District Food Services department and Children’s Hunger Alliance have worked together to help feed hungry children in Bucyrus and Crawford County. The partnership between the two organizations took another step forward when Children’s Hunger Alliance awarded a grant to the Bucyrus City School District.

Through a Walmart State Foundation Grant, Children’s Hunger Alliance is awarding the Bucyrus City School District with a breakfast vending machine at Bucyrus High School. The goal of the vending machine, which is valued at over $15,000, is to help increase school breakfast participation.

“In addition to the vending machine, we also purchased the school district a new smoothie machine,” Children’s Hunger Alliance representative Whitney Gherman said. “The goal of this machine is to improve the quality of meals served by allowing the students to enjoy a beverage blended with fresh fruit, yogurt, and/or dairy.”

Children’s Hunger Alliance is pleased to provide support to the Bucyrus City School District, and its staff, for their dedication to ensuring more students start their day with a nutritious meal. A good breakfast sets the stage in a positive way for all students to learn.

“Whitney and the entire Children’s Hunger Alliance staff are incredibly supportive of all our programs to help provide nutritious meals to our students,” Food Services Manager Lorie Pennington said. “As state and federal guidelines become more stringent, it’s a blessing to have an organization ready to help us accomplish our mission. Thank you Children’s Hunger Alliance!”

    A 40-year-old man was arrested in the shooting death of a 33-year- old woman at the Stony Creek Apartments in Ashland shortly early Monday morning. Ashland Police say officers were dispatched to apartment B at 230 Mathews Avenue at 1:49 a.m.. Police say residents were hearing gunshots coming from the inside of an adjacent apartment and the bullets were coming through the walls. As police officers and an Ashland County Sheriff's deputy entered the building, they heard gun hots coming from inside apartment A. The officers found the entry door barricaded so they provided cover as the occupants of apartment B evacuated, as well as the building's other residents. A cell phone dialogue was established with the 40-year-old man. At 3:49 a.m., he removed the barricade, exited the apartment unarmed, and was taken into custody. The body of the 33-year-old woman was located inside apartment A and a cause of death has not been determined, although she had a visible gunshot wound. The 40-year-old man is in custody at the Ashland County Jail but no charges have been filed as an investigation continues. Officers from the Ashland County Sheriff's Office and the Ohio State Highway Patrol provided perimeter security at the scene.
