Individuals who are able bodied and those with disabilities will benefit from the information presented at an inaugural expo at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, to be held Oct. 23 at the USO Community Center, Bldg. 1222, Kittyhawk Center, Area A, from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The expo is being held in observance of October as the 72nd National Disability Employment Awareness Month. Reflecting the important role disability plays in workforce diversity, this year’s NDEAM theme is “Inclusion Drives Innovation.”
NDEAM celebrates the contributions of workers with disabilities and educates about the value of a diverse workforce inclusive of their skills and talents.
The expo will bring outside companies, organizations and subject matter experts to display and discuss how technology is advancing to help individuals with disabilities. Information may range from vehicle modification to service animals to prosthetic devices and more, said John Hixenbaugh, NDEAM committee member.
“We’re holding the expo so people can network and gain needed information,” he said. “Disabilities aren’t necessarily immediately apparent – they can be related to the brain, sight or hearing, for example.
“This should help all kinds of people – you don’t have to be a service member or a veteran to see someone who may have a special product or training you need,” Hixenbaugh added. “There has been tremendous interest and a lot of positive reaction for this.”
Health screenings also may be offered.

FORT MORGAN, Ala. — An Alabama conservation group has issued a graphic warning after an endangered sea turtle was reportedly found dead, tangled in an old beach chair.
“This makes me so mad,” the post read. “How many hundreds of times do we have to ask people to pick their stuff up? It should just be common decency. I think I am going to print this out and carry it with me next time I have to ask.”

By Sunday morning, the post had been shared more than 2,700 times, prompting hundreds of comments.
“Come on, people, if you want to ‘adult,’ then be one and pick up after yourselves,” one commenter wrote. “This is their habitat, be mindful and respect it.”
“Please, please. Only leave footprints,” added another. “How do we make visitors understand this?”

SHELBY COUNTY — A Sidney man who struck an Amish buggy from behind, killing a woman and injuring three other family members, has been found guilty of aggravated vehicular homicide.
The crash happened on State Route 47 at the Shelby-Logan County Line April 20.
On Friday in Shelby County Common Pleas Court, Steven Hunter, 43, entered a plea of no contest to the charge.
Killed in that crash was Sarah Schwartz, 23. Her husband, Henry, son, Elmer, and daughter Ester were critically injured but survived. All four were ejected from the buggy.
Shelby County Prosecutor Tim Sell said Hunter was drunk and high on marijuana when he drove his SUV into the buggy in April.
