Several speakers accused school board member Cal Smith of not wanting Hall to continue in the position due to personal problems with the coach.
Parents expressed appreciation for how Hall runs his baseball program, and when prompted, an overwhelming majority of those present stood to indicate they were there to back him.

Green Chair takes center court during BGSU basketball game PDF Print E-mail

A local non-profit organization's life-saving mission will take over the Stroh Center Wednesday at 7 p.m. during the Bowling Green State University's women's basketball game.
Life Connection of Ohio, the organ procurement organization in Maumee, will have volunteers and staff on hand at Wednesday's game to give people an opportunity to register as organ and tissue donors at their informational table on the main concourse. Also making an appearance will be the Green Chair, the star of Life Connection of Ohio's latest awareness campaign. Every day, 18 chairs go empty because the need for organs far outweighs the supply. The tagline of the Green Chair Campaign is "Don't let another chair go empty" because encouraging more people to register as organ donors means there will be fewer empty chairs.
Sitting in the Green Chair at center court during halftime will be the Peterson family - Jean, Dave and Derrik - from Custar. Seventeen-year-old Brook Peterson, Jean and Dave's daughter and Derrik's sister, passed away in 2008 and gave the gift of life through organ donation. Because of Brook's generous gift, three lives were saved - and three chairs continue to be filled. Amazingly, two years after Brook's death, her grandfather received a life-saving kidney transplant, so the Petersons have experienced both sides of donation - giving and receiving.
