Bus garage renovations on Eastwood agenda

The second phase of plans to renovate the Pemberville bus garage into two classrooms will be on the agenda of the Eastwood school board for its Nov. 28 meeting.

It was a covert operation, veiled in secrecy and subterfuge. For days, plans were made with secret phone calls, meetings and texts to keep Northwood Schools students Tayler and Haley Metcalf in the dark.

The conspiracy started with the girls’ mom Shannon, and her father Todd, a Technical Sergeant with the 180th Fighter Wing, Ohio Air National Guard.

Forty-three people who posted messages on The Press’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pressnewspapers/ expressed their disappointment by the news that The Andersons store in the Woodville Mall will close in February.

Some blamed city officials for not finding a way to keep the store open, while others criticized the public for not supporting local businesses. Many just expressed sadness to hear that the store, which has been located in the mall for 24 years, will close.

Erika Dunbar, of Northwood, 14, moved quickly, even though she was scared.

On Sept. 20, she was outside playing with her best friend, Makala Bowen, on Gardner Ave. when she noticed fire and thick smoke coming from an empty home a few yards down from her yard.

The Lake Township trustees are planning to approve a new health insurance package for township employees at their first meeting in December.

The trustees Tuesday received proposals for employee coverage for next year from Don Douglas, a contracted insurance broker, who recommended the township remain with Medical Mutual.
