NB Police Report Phone Scammers Locally

North Baltimore Police have reported that several residents have received phone calls in which the caller is telling the recipient that they have serious charges pending and that the local police will be arresting them if they do not call back.

North Baltimore Police have reported that several residents have received phone calls in which the caller is telling the recipient that they have serious charges pending and that the local police will be arresting them if they do not call back.

This is a scam in which the caller is wanting personal information.

We also had a citizen report a call in which he allegedly won the Publishers Clearinghouse Award.

Please call the police department for advice before giving any personal information over the phone.


NB Softball Opens with Win

North Baltimore opened the softball season last night, in NB, defeating Ayersville 5-4, in 8 innings, in non-league action.

Lady Tigers Win Opener

The Lady Tigers won their season opener in dramatic fashion Monday afternoon at Tiger field.

The Tigers took the lead early as Katelyn Weinandy drove in Makenna Ray in the bottom of the first inning to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead.  But the lead was short lived as the Ayersville Lady Pilots scored in the second, third and sixth innings to put the Tigers in a 4-2 deficit.

It wasn’t until the bottom of the sixth that the Tigers could get back on track with a two run homer from Weinandy to tie the game up 4-4.  The Lady Pilots were able to threaten in their next two at bats but a gritty performance in the circle by Weinandy and a solid defensive effort by the Tigers kept the Pilots from plating that crucial run.

In the bottom of the eighth after a sac bunt by Hannah Lord to move Weinandy to third base the Lady Tigers were finally able to put the game in the win column as Jordan Baker drove in Weinandy for the game winning RBI.

Final Score: 5-4

WP – Katelyn Weinandy (1-0) 8K’s

Tiger Hitters:  Makenna Ray 1-2B; Katelyn Weinandy 2-2B, HR; Jordan Baker 1B

Record: 1-0 / 0-0 BVC

Powell Elementary Art Show Held


Collaboration was key in the 2018 Powell Elementary Art Show.  Students explored sculpture as one of the most popular categories this year.  Makayla Trout’s Bee Hive sculpture won  both First Place and Best in Show for the Kindergarten through 3rd Grade Group.  She was assisted in creating this sculpture by classmates Raelynn Smith, Ian Ramirez and Zander Grant.  5th Grader Addison Bryan captured the Best in Show Prize for the 4th through 6th Grade Group with her scenic drawing in the Nature/Animal category.
Collaborative sculpture groups also took many awards with Ariana Melendez, Rylee Keller and Attlee Rowlinson receiving 2nd and Jonah Hagemyer, Lucas Long, Michael Kochis-Dulaney and Jack Clark coming in 3rd. Colin Coykendall, Wyatt Baltz, Peyton Carlton and Gavin Soltis worked together to create a marble run that scored a second place ribbon.  1st graders Sienna Snyder and Ava Delancy worked together to create award winning mermaids.  Peyton Coykendall, Gabby Clayton and Adalynn Reynolds’ collaborative efforts also brought home a ribbon for the second graders. Not to be outdone, 6th graders Sara Casey and Patience Helberg submitted a 1st place sculpture depicting a pet turtle, Steav, and his habitat.
Over 500 pieces were entered in the show this year. Powell Elementary students are taught by NBHS alumni, Erika Miklovic. See the full list of winners:

Troop 315 Newsletter April 2018

North Baltimore Boy Scout Troop #315 has another Eagle Scout – Damon Dotson made Eagle rank on Thursday April 22, 2018. Congrats to Damon!

Troop 315 Newsletter April 2018
Damon Dotson just made Eagle rank on Thursday April 22, 2018.  Kathy Bomer, Jennifer Codding, Frank Boes and Larry Bateson sat on the board.  Damon’s project was to build the NBPD gun bunker for their practice shooting by the reservoir.  I’ve know Damon since he was 8 years old and we practiced karate together for many years,  He then opted to join boy scouts and stayed committed to the program his entire youth.  Camp Alaska’s, Summer Camps, District Camps, Damon was there.  It’s been great fun and a pleasure to be able to see him grow up .  His parents Tony and Vicki, have been very supportive of the troop over the years and many thanks goes out to them for their involvement and that occasional “Dad voice”.
Recap of Camp Alaska
So .. A very successful camp Alaska at Camp Berry was had on the weekend of March 3rd.  All the scouts who ventured out to the woods survived 24 hrs preparing their own meal over their own fires,  building shelters and dressing properly for the outdoor survival.  However…  Back at the cabin,  we were teaching younger scouts how to use an ax, mainly Skyler, who managed to hit his head not once , but twice causing with the back of the hatchet causing a more than interesting moment for all us volunteers. 
No meeting April 1st for Easter
Summer camp details and preparation
Camp Frontier Leaders Guide   https://www.psrweb.org/LeaderGuide
With about 1 month from the summer camp payment deadline for Early bird, please put this at the top of your list of “To Do’s”.  Make check payable to Troop 315 and let me know what camp, or both, you are going to.  
Deadline for early bird campers May 1st
Deadline for BSA physical  June 1st

Here’s a recap of my summer camp reminder from last newsletter.  Camp is just 2 months away.  and early bird payment is due by May 1st approx.35 days.  Don’t let these dates get away from you. I would recommend all first year campers to attend Camp Berry due to its great Baden Powell program for first year campers but you can attend either or both.

Scouts from our troop will have 3 ways to enjoy camp in 2018.  1:)  Pioneer Scout reservation from June 17 thru 23 in Pioneer Ohio   Cost 287.00    Option 2:)  Camp Berry in Findlay July 1st thru 7th.  Cost 295.00  Option 3:)   2 weeks of camp, going to both Berry and Pioneer   Cost – $582.00   Either way you choose,  We can also do a pre payment plan into your accounts to spread out paying for camp.  All prices are based on Early bird registration paying  before May 1st.  

Parents may attend camp but here are the requirements.  You need to be a registered adult leader with a BSA physical completed,  Cost is $107.00 for yourself.   National requires all adults to be registered, background checked and have taken Youth Protection training before attending resident camp.
BSA Physical requirement for all scouts and adults who attend resident camp and are required every year.  You have until June 1st to have this completed and it works best if there is a sports physical being done or annual check up you can include this on.  Here is the link to a PDF version you can fill out and take to your doctor.
