For those who grew up in the 1970’s, Sycamore Grove, in Luckey, was the place to be seen. “Ruby Jones at the Sycamore Grove,” was the siren song on local radio stations that helped bring in people by the hundreds into the bar.

Richard Krotzer, who purchased the Sycamore Grove on land contract in 1974, fondly remembers the “good old days.”

Parents asked to change their thinking

Cari Buehler is asking for about 45 minutes of time from residents of the Genoa School District – parents of students in particular.

Park district projects to be discussed

Oregon Councilwoman Sandy Bihn, who is also Western Lake Erie Waterkeeper, said winter activities on Maumee Bay once enjoyed by residents are now returning, thanks to cooler temperatures and less heated water being discharged from FirstEnergy’s power plant on Bay Shore Road.

“Most of the Oregon shoreline along Maumee Bay is freezing - at least for now.  What a treat,” said Bihn. “We may be able to once again skate, ice fish, etc.”
