HERE IS ST. JACOB TRIVIA ABOUT OUR PEOPLE

St. Jacob men and women have been very active with
their work and with other things in their lives.  Read
about some of their amazing activities over the years....

--You may not know the name Hobby Kinderdine but we
   believe he might be pretty well known very soon.  He sat
   in the last pew on the pulpit side with the rest of the
   Kinderdine family.  The NFL will celebrate their 100th
   anniversary very soon.  Hobby played in the first NFL
   game as a center and also as the kicker for the
   Dayton Triangles.  When his team scored a touchdown
   to go ahead 6-0, he kicked the extra point to make it
   7-0.  Little did anyone there know that this would be
   remembered as the first extra point in NFL history!!!
   Pastor Hout recently carried a picture of him when the
   Bengals visited Welcome Stadium in Dayton, but he was
   unable to get any of the kickers to autograph it.  He will
   keep trying, though.

--Shannon Quinn Thompson is well known for many things.
   We recently heard a story about her that will make her
   even more famous.  She was six months pregnant and
   she rode her unicycle at her school for the kids!!!  Yes,
   she is pretty amazing as she also led the nation in “digs
   per set” her senior year on the Capital University volleyball
   team.  She just had a baby boy, Jackson Norman and they
   were all out recently for the wedding of Megan Davis.
   Jackson was not playing volleyball or riding a unicycle. 
   Little Jackson was also recently seen at the noon service!

--Jason Bruns just finished on the podium at the
   recent “First Four” race at the University of Dayton.
   This was no ordinary race as he won tickets to the
   NCAA tournament games and $75!!!  Go Jason.
   In college he was the top runner on the Wright State
   Cross Country team and has run the Boston
   marathon.....even against the wind the whole time.
   His wife was a champion tennis player for Miamisburg
   and Wright State.  She even pole vaulted for Pastor
   Hout.  They also have a new baby - Hazel Evelyn.
   She looks so cute in her own little WSU stocking cap.

--Pastor Hout just returned from the Top Museum in
   Burlington, Wisconsin and a visit with the famous
   Judith Schultz.  She has been on a number of TV
   shows and even in an MGM movie.  The two
   shared stories and top ideas and promise to work
   together more in the future.  She is also a lover of
   history.  She likes the look and stories of St. Jacob.
   She is especially interested in our 200th birthday!!!

--Mable Braunschweiger is famous around here for her
   friendship and hospitality.  She is also famous for
   being named in the Bing Crosby/Bob Hope film
   “Road to Utopia”.  In that movie Bing is talking about
   a girl he went sleight riding with by the name of Mable
   Braunschweiger, the lady blacksmith!!!

--The Miamisburg Cross-Country team just made it to
   the state meet and placed 10th.  They are now the
   greatest team in Miamisburg history.  You can see
   their picture by our outdoor sign.  Our very own
   Jonathan Steingass was on the team that was
   previously the greatest at Burg HS.  He ran some
   great races including one of the top XC times in
   Miamisburg history.

--Darleen Payne is recovering at Sycamore High Rise
   but people around here remember her well and the
   fact that she has over 300 humorous t-shirts!!!

--We just found out that Alexis Izor (Kim Izor’s daughter
   in Seattle) is on the national traveling sports team
   “Rat City Roller Derby”.  She has also made the
   all-star squad.

--The Plaza Theatre recently had a sold out crowd for
   the movie musical “The Showman”.  Our very own
   Lawrence Benner was a clown for the Ringling
   Brothers/Barnum and Bailey Circus and traveled the
   equivalent of circling the globe seven times with the
   circus.  The shaker bells in our sanctuary come from
   his estate.

--Mayor Dick Church has led this city for seven terms.
   Can you believe that this is the most in Miamisburg
   history?  Every day he goes in the office he sets a new
   record for the longest serving mayor.

--Jim Bustillo recently was inducted into the Miamisburg
   hall of fame for gymnastics.  He joins fellow state
   champion Tom Schultz.  Pastor Hout is not in his high
   school hall of fame but he did make Capital
   University’s hall of fame in track and field.

--Did you know a number of people in our parish have
   patents?  Jim DeYoung has one! Steve Schultz has
   two!!  Kim Izor has plaques on the wall of his house
   from his four patents!!!!

--Four people from our parish worked on the "Manhattan
   project" (for the first nuclear bomb). Mary Alice Greb,
   Art Vollmer, Bob Greb and Bob Shiffer. Some have
   said Bob worked on the "switch" but others more
   accurately have called it "a proximity fuse".

--Matt Muncy holds the Miamisburg High School record
   for rushing yards in one game and for a career. He
   played four years as a linebacker at Ohio University
   where he was named on the All American team at the
   linebacker postion.  He also played in the pros for the
   Bengals and the Titans.

--After nearly five decades, Steve Schultz still holds the
   Miamisburg school record for interceptions in one
   game.

--Betty Daily once won the poetry prize in a local
   magazine for 14 months in a row.

--Dale Schram was in the Miamisburg High School band
   10 years.

--Sidney Wagner once played the pipe organ in worship
   for 25 years without missing a Sunday.

--Mary Ellen Wagner and Sidney Wagner had perfect
   attendance in Sunday School for over 40 years.

--Stephen Steingass holds the school record at
   Miamisburg for the 2,000 meter steeplechase.

--Randy Hardin won his town yo-yo competition in
   Iowa. He then went to three other towns and won
   those battles before barely losing a fifth competition.
