        State Senator Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green) and State Representative Steve Arndt (R-Port Clinton), proposed a series of clean water and conservation initiatives they think will get Ohio on track to reduce nutrient loading into Lake Erie by 40 percent by 2025.

        The representatives proposed the plan at the Ottawa County Soil and Water Conservation District’s Lake Erie Forum at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds.

         Since the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency announced on March 22 that it planned to designate the open waters of Lake Erie’s Western Basin as impaired for recreation due to harmful algae and the presence of mycrocystin, reaction has been mostly positive from some environmental groups and public officials.

        Before they head to the polls on May 8, voters in the Woodmore Local School District will have the opportunity to ask questions of the administration about the district’s finances and a 3-mill, 5-year permanent improvement levy that will be up for renewal.

        Financial forums are scheduled for April 17 at the PreK-8 building and on April 26 at the high school library. Both forums will start at 6 p.m.

        Even though FirstEnergy Solutions filed a deactivation notice last week for three nuclear power plants, the company also called for state lawmakers to enact legislation that would make it feasible to continue operations.

        FES, a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp., on Wednesday notified PJM Interconnection, a regional transmission organization, that two nuclear power plants in Ohio, including the Davis-Besse plant, and one in Pennsylvania will be deactivated over the next three years.

 The Camp Perry National Guard Training Base, home of the National Trophy Pistol and Rifle Matches since 1907, is currently undergoing significant upgrades to some of the most celebrated areas of the grounds.

“There will be a different feel when people come onto post,” said MAJ Michael Yates, base operations manager of the Camp Perry facility since 2014.
