        Last year, when E.J. Mansour left town, one of his friends in Elmore volunteered to take care of his two cats, Tommy and Timmy. As he was dropping off his cats, Tommy bolted out the door. Since then, he has been tirelessly looking for the eight-year-old feline.

        A recent study by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency showed that there has been no decrease in phosphorus and nutrients flowing from the Maumee River watershed into Lake Erie.

        Oregon City Council at a recent meeting approved a resolution accepting a petition requesting the installation of a sanitary sewer on South Norden Road.

        The petition specifically seeks the improvement of South Norden Road from the centerline of Seaman Road southerly for a distance of approximately 1,213 feet to Wolf Creek by the installation of the sanitary sewer.

        The owners of 63 percent of the frontage of the lots and lands to be assessed for the improvement petitioned council.

        An informational meeting to field questions about levies on the May ballot to help fund emergency medical service in Woodville Township is scheduled for May 2 at 7 p.m. at the fire station, 321 E. Main St., Woodville.

        Voters on May 8 will decide two millage issues: renewal of a 4-mill levy and additional 1.7-mills for the service. Both levies have five-year limits.

        Will the Nexus pipeline project be a revenue windfall for school districts and local governments along its 255-mile route?

        With a tax issue on the May 8 ballot, the Gibsonburg school administration is cautioning voters in the district to not look at the pipeline as a financial savior for the school system.

        Tim Murray, school superintendent, after a discussion with the Sandusky County auditor’s office, said he still has questions about how much the pipeline will generate in tax revenues and when they will be distributed.
