Mr. Locher who has recently written a 215-part historical series, “When Wayne County was a Whippersnapper“, which will be printed as an ongoing series in the Wooster Daily Record newspaper during 2012, will also talk about some of the more inventive methods of getting things done utilized by some of the pioneer residents of Wayne County.
