Funeral arrangements are pending for an executive of the Marysville-based Scotts company who died Saturday while rock climbing in the Hocking State Forest. 49-year-old Timothy Watabe had taken a group of Boy Scouts to Edison Hollow to do some rappelling. Watabe was also a Boy Scouts troop leader and a Bishop at a Mormon church in Dublin.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
