March-comes-in-like-a-lion

March comes in like a lion Happiness is a new kite, a strong March breeze, and plenty of running room. But sometimes the wind wins and the kite takes an unintended flight into a nearby tree. Pupils at Spencer-Sharples School were running the gamut of emotions as they matched their wits with the wind March 18, 1969. Blade photographer Lloyd Ransom happened to have a good view as Gregory McNair retrieved his fragile toy from an unplanned landing spot. Spencer-Sharples was an independent public school established in 1948 for students in Spencer and Harding Townships. The Ohio General Assembly approved a proposal by Toledo Public Schools to annex Spencer-Sharples in 1967. The school was closed in 1980.
