Free bike program

A for­mer Gen­eral Motors team leader has taken up a free bicy­cle pro­gram, after his brother-in-law started the pro­gram. Larry Sparks repairs bikes and gives them away to needy fam­i­lies. Sparks gets many requests every day. He said he has about 100 bikes on hand now, and said he’s received requests from Defi­ance, Ful­ton, Henry, Williams and Wood coun­ties, plus more. Those inter­ested in donat­ing unused bicy­cles to the project can drop them off at Sims Metal Man­age­ment, 27063 Ohio 281, Defiance.
