The Ohio Elections Commission has determined there is probable cause of a violation of the state’s elections laws after reviewing a complaint filed by a candidate for a seat on the Ottawa County Board of Commissioners.

Incumbent Mark Stahl, a Republican, filed the complaint against the Ohio Democratic Party.

Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha was recognized for performing a miracle, canonized by Pope Benedict XVI last month, and the result is the Oregon-based parochial school system is now called St. Kateri Catholic Schools.

Father Eric Schild, president of St. Kateri Catholic Academy and Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School, was in The Vatican to witness the canonization of Kateri, a young Native American girl who converted to Catholicism.

After two days of listening to testimony, an Ottawa County Common Pleas Court jury deliberated for about an hour before deciding Michael Boyer was not guilty of arson and insurance fraud.

Boyer, formerly of 24774 W. State Route 51, was indicted in August, 2011 on two counts of aggravated arson and one count of insurance fraud – all felony charges.

Within a 20-minute span, two Oregon school buses were involved in road accidents Thursday morning.

Police said the first accident saw 44-year-old Christopher Peters, 3216 Wick, Oregon cross the center line in the 4800 block of Seaman near Wynn Road and run into bus No. 43 driven by Vicki Pauken just after 7:30 a.m.

If passed Tuesday, an additional 1-mill, 3-year property tax levy in Freedom Township would be used to cover operating expenses such as utilities and the maintenance of roads, buildings, and cemeteries.

Dave Gerwin, the township fiscal officer, said the levy would generate about $59,795 annually.
