Nick and Whitney Lavinder to appear on "Wild Weddings" 5.06

Written by David Green.

Whitney (Waack) Lavinder of Fayette will get to relive a wedding blunder this Friday—on national television.

Whitney married Nick Lavinder Nov. 1 in Delta, Ohio, and they staged a “Dash for Cash” at their reception. During the run for the money, Whitney fell flat on her face. The move was caught on video—and then submitted to “Wild Weddings” on TLC.

The clip made the cut and Whitney’s embarrassing moment is scheduled to air at 9 p.m.

Whitney is the daughter of Jeff and Penny Waack of Wauseon and Nick is the son of Trent and Nancy Lavinder and Jeff and Dodie Cuff of Fayette.

Bridal party members also appearing in the clip are Chad Lavinder, Timo Salinas, Justin Rodriguez, Ben Sly, David Sallows, Kendra Batdorf, Hayley Tule, Lauren Bishop, Breena O’Neil and Aleasha Kelly.

TLC will compensate Whitney—and the rest of the bridal party—so the botched dash will still bring in some cash.

NOTE: The show was rescheduled to May 15.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
