       The Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals has upheld the 2017 conviction of a man for the theft of jewelry and other merchandise from the Meijer store in Oregon.

        Rico L. Wright, who had agreed to plea guilty to one count of petty theft after being indicted for grand theft, challenged the trial court’s order to pay $29,549 in restitution to Meijer.

        Recent sampling in the Sandusky and Maumee rivers by various state agencies indicate grass carp populations are low, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

        Crews of fisheries biologists collected adult and juvenile carp June 12-14; 27 from the Sandusky River and three from the Maumee River.

        “Although present in the system, grass carp populations are considered to be low, and this week’s action reinforces this conclusion,” the ODNR said in a prepared statement.

        A bill that supporters claim will put Ohio on the path to a goal of reducing toxic algae in Lake Erie is heading to the governor’s desk.

        Senate Bill 299, also called the Clean Lake 2020 Plan, last week passed both chambers of the Ohio legislature and will provide about $36 million in additional funding for programs aimed at improving water quality in the lake.

        The School Resource Officer program in Oregon has gained the confidence of residents as well as city and school officials alike, Police Chief Mike Navarre said last week after city council agreed Monday to expand the program into the school district’s three elementary schools.

        “It’s a very good program. The resource officers are liaisons between the police department and school system,” he said. “For students they are a trusted confidante. Students will go to them before they go to an officer on the street.”

       The Woodmore school board has approved agreements with the police departments in the villages of Woodville and Elmore to establish a School Resource Officer program in the school system’s buildings.

        Under the agreements approved Wednesday, the officers will be on duty daily at the PreK-8 building in Woodville and the high school in Elmore.
