Listening to Jeff Bauman on stage at Bowling Green State University, it's easy to imagine he'd talk to strangers.
That's what the 28-year-old was doing 11 months ago, waiting for his girlfriend at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The atmosphere on that bright spring day was festive, and everyone was chatting together.
Except the "weird" tall guy carrying a backpack who Bauman noticed standing next to him. "He was not having fun."
When Bauman turned again, the tall guy was gone, but his backpack was still there. Bauman sensed something was wrong. He turned to a friend to suggest they move.
There was a "flash," he said, "and three pops," and he was on the ground. Around him was total chaos. Then he realized how badly ripped apart his legs were. When he looked down at his legs, "there was nothing there ... I was really messed up." Then he heard the second blast. He didn't think he would make it, and he thought about calling his mother but his phone was gone.

Plans for the proposed placement of the new Costco store in Perrsyburg.
PERRYSBURG - Further discussions about Costco's future centered around conditions that could be applied to the project to protect interests of the city and residents near the proposed location at Ohio 25 and Eckel Junction Road.
John Kevern, Tim McCarthy and Tom Mackin, members of city council's Planning and Zoning Committee, discussed the matter Thursday in advance of a full city council vote on a special-approval use for the store, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. The trio did not make a recommendation on whether council should approve its portion of the project, but voted 3-0 to move it along for consideration by the full body on Tuesday.
McCarthy and Mackin both had detailed questions about the current standing of several aspects of the project, mostly involving traffic, that are yet unresolved.
After detailed talks on traffic counts and how they might change in the future, McCarthy suggested two outlots on Costco's plan should not be developed, even if it's not for several years, and the company should instead take ownership of the entire site.

In his 13 years as the parish administrator for St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Don Neifer has been able to get a lot of things done with the help of the parish community.
''I have always had a heart for helping other folks; somebody who hasn't had the opportunities I have had,'' Neifer said.
''There is so much need in the community and of course a lot of that would come into the church office,'' he added.
A humble man, Neifer plans to retire on March 30, but that doesn't mean he will be giving up all his volunteer and advocacy work.
He said the decision to retire shocked a lot of people, but it's time to step aside and to be able to say no for a while.
The 1966 Otsego High School graduate plans to continue to work with the church, the American Cancer Society, Bridge Hospice, Coalition of Care for Wood County, and Wood Lane Industries.

The fruits of a partnership between Bowling Green State University and North Star Aviation were on display Thursday in a hangar at the Bowling Green airport.
Three small planes stood at ready, sparkling with new paint jobs outside, and ready for flight with new digital displays inside.
These are half the planes in the program's fleet. The others will also be upgraded, as will the facility. A new complex, scheduled to be completed by fall, will feature a new 3,000-square-foot hangar and an over 3,000-square-foot terminal, including classroom space.
All this, BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey said, is made possible through the collaboration with North Star. The company will collect the special flight instruction fees. North Star will hire the flight instructors while BGSU faculty provide the classroom instruction.
