Laura Weisgarber gives her local picks

By her own description, 2015 was a “rough year” for Laura Weisgarber. Highlighted two years ago in The Canton Repository’s “Brave & Beautiful” section, the Jackson Township resident saw her job move out of town just days before she lost her mother to Alzheimer’s disease. A few weeks later, she was diagnosed with breast cancer—for the second time in the years since her battle against Hodgkins disease when she was a freshman at Ohio State University.

Wedding spotlight: Alisa and Peter Wassenaar

Alisa Wenger and Peter Wassenaar met at a Bible study nearly nine years ago while they were students at The Ohio State University, but they didn’t start dating until January 2010. They were married Sept. 5, 2012, at a civil wedding in Enschede, the Netherlands, and in a church wedding in Denekamp, The Netherlands (church weddings do not have any legal power there, which is the reason for two ceremonies).
