Householders hold reunion
The 66th L.A. Householder family reunion was held July 21 in the Masonic Stone Shelter at Bowling Green City Park.
The American flag was hung by Jason Householder of Findlay. Reunion president Mel Householder, Findlay, asked Larry DeVilviss, ex-Marine, to lead the Pledge of Allegiance.
David Lee, Jerry City, offered the prayer before the potluck dinner, with more than 60 people in attendance from Ohio and Michigan.
Memorabilia on view included a large photo display of Verna and Lawrence Householder and families.
There was no business meeting this year, due to a sudden illness. The president did, however, appoint secretary Ila Banbury, Bowling Green, to make a reservation for the 2014 reunion.
The 49th Men's Householder Golf Open was held in June and won by Patrick Householder, Kettering.
The 39th Ladies' Golf Championship was won by Tiffany Nelson, Findlay.
The 2014 Householder reunion will be held on July 13, which is a Sunday, at the same time and place.
Baby boy born on
subway platform in D.C.
WASHINGTON (AP) - A woman who gave birth to a baby boy on a Metro platform in downtown Washington is getting $100 in subway or bus fare.
Shavonnte Taylor received a handwritten note of congratulations Thursday afternoon from Metro general manager Richard Sarles. Included in the note was a $100 SmarTrip card.
Taylor gave birth Thursday morning on the platform of the busy L'Enfant Plaza station. Metro officials say she went into labor aboard a green line train bound for Greenbelt, Md. An off-duty emergency medical technician helped her off the train and delivered the baby.
Taylor and her son, Amir, were taken to a hospital in apparent good health.
Sarles wrote to Taylor that he's sure the delivery didn't go as she imagined.
Rare foul flower spreads stench at Calif. college
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) - The corpse flower has come alive.
The huge, rare and famously putrid Indonesian flower started blooming for one day Wednesday, spreading its stench across the University of California, Santa Barbara.
The university said in a statement that the flower "smells like a cross between rotting flesh and Limburger cheese," and the greenhouse where it's unfurling its blossom is open to members of the public who want to take a whiff.
The flower uses flies instead of bees to spread its sticky pollen. It produces two sulfurous chemicals within its leaves that the flies find attractive.
The plant at UCSB is 4 feet tall and growing fast.
