        Oregon Police arrested a man who allegedly slashed tires in three separate incidences in Oregon, and others possibly in Toledo.

        The arrest was made days after a motorist had reported that a man had gotten out of his vehicle while she was stopped at a traffic light last Saturday and had slashed her tire.

        “There was an incident in Oregon late last Saturday night that has been posted on our social media sites that are now blowing up about it, so we thought it best to give it to you from the horse’s mouth, so to speak,” Oregon Police assistant chief Paul Magdich recently posted on the Oregon Ohio Police Division Facebook page.

        At approximately 10:55 pm on Saturday, a woman traveling East through Oregon, on Navarre Avenue, stopped at the light at the intersection of Lallendorf, according to Magdich. While stopped, she heard a noise. At the same time, her tire indicators began to flash that she had low air in one of her tires.

        The Lake Township Police Department is planning to fill the vacancy in its K-9 unit next year, Mark Hummer, police chief, informed the township trustees last week.

        With a fundraiser donation of $6,250 from GetGo Trucking and funds from a civil forfeiture, the department will likely request the unit be reinstated in the 2019 budget proposal, Hummer said.

        Bruno, the department’s dog for about 10 years, died last year.

       An enterprise zone agreement with Pilkington NSG North America will bring a financial boost to the Eastwood School District but it’s not going to have a major impact on the district’s 5-year forecast, Brent Welker, district superintendent, said last week.

        The Eastwood school board Monday approved the agreement which will result in the company paying $343,000 annually to the school district for 15 years instead of paying property taxes on a planned facility on Pemberville Road, south of Garling Road.

One lucky customer will have 80 seconds to race through Gladieux Home Center, fill a cart full of home improvement products and walk away with it when the Gladieux family celebrates 80 years in business Saturday, Oct. 20.

According to Ron Gladieux Jr., the company was founded in 1938, near the end of the Great Depression. Herbert and Leo Gladieux formed a partnership – one had a dump truck, the other had $50. Together they started selling and delivering coal under the name Gladieux Coal Company.

        A .25-mill, five-year levy, known as Issue 17, will be on the November 6 ballot in Jerusalem Township.

        The levy is needed to fund development of new property the township purchased for Oakwood Cemetery, which is nearly full, according to trustees.

        “Ohio law mandates that each township provide a cemetery. So we’re doing what we have to do,” said Trustee David Bench.

        The cemetery, established in 1912, is on Brown Road, between Decant and Cousino roads.

        Last year, the township was able to purchase land from an adjacent property owner, according to Trustee Mark Sattler.

        “Now we have enough property to double the size of the cemetery so we can provide for burial space for decades to come,” he said.

        There are costs to develop the property, he added.
