GRAND RAPIDS - When it comes to athletics, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better pair on land or water than Jason and Kathleen Rupert.
The brother and sister from Wood County Special Olympics will be competing in the National Special Olympics USA Games in New Jersey, which begin this weekend.
Running June 14 through June 21, the games will include 3,500 athletes from across the country competing in 16 sports. Competition venues include Princeton University, the Prudential Center in Newark, and a number of other sites.
"Pumped," said Kathleen, 24, of how she feels about heading to the games. "It's just a great experience."

In a first-of-its-kind event, Gov. John Kasich signed a higher education bill into law in a ceremony at Buckeye Boys State Thursday.
"This is all about getting you on the right path and having a guiding star," Kasich said.
The bill - House Bill 484, the first higher education bill by State Rep. Tim Brown - authorizes community colleges to create a tuition guarantee program, through which schools can establish a tuition cost for incoming freshmen with the promise that the costs will not increase over the course of the student's time at the college.
It also establishes performance-based funding formulas for community colleges and technical centers, and creates a workgroup to examine financial aid options.

Wood County's top health official resigned Thursday night after it became evident she turned down more than $146,000 without asking the board of health.
Wood County Health Commissioner Pamela Butler unexpectedly offered her resignation to the board of health during a lengthy executive session.
Immediately after the meeting, Dr. Fleming Fallon, president of the board, offered little explanation and declined to comment on the specifics surrounding Butler's resignation, citing the confidentiality of executive session.
"It was her choice," Fallon said before pausing to consider further comments.
"Some information was made available in executive session. I'm not going to reveal that because of the sanctity of the executive session. She was given the opportunity to resign if she wanted to. In executive session, she tendered her resignation."

LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township trustees considered new money for the police department and the renewal of two fire levies at their department heads meeting Wednesday.
The board took no action but will likely do so next week as it mulls how to generate about $1 million for the police budget.
A new levy to generate that figure would likely be around 2.5 mills, though 3 mills is an option that would provide flexibility later in the term of the levy.
Last week, the board discussed a possible 2.6-mill levy, and their information suggested the owner of a $100,000 home would pay about $91 per year under that figure.
