The Great Lakes Historical Society and the City of Toledo on Monday broke ground for the new National Museum of the Great Lakes at a ceremony on Toledo’s eastern riverfront.

Toledo’s newest museum is currently slated to open during the summer of 2013.

A 900 kilowatt wind turbine at Clay High School that was shut down in May will be up and running next week.

FirstEnergy Toledo Edison shut down the turbine, which had been installed in the spring, because a Direct Transfer Trip Switch was never installed. The cost to install the safety measure was estimated at $200,000, which SUREEnergy, the general project contractor for the turbine, could not cover.

Genoa treasurer frustrated by finding

A state audit determined that Genoa Local School District improperly contributed a small amount of money toward the retirement funds of three of its board of education members and asked for the cash to be returned.

Oregon City Council at a meeting earlier this month established the city as an Energy Special Improvement District (ESID).

In June, 2010, the Ohio Legislature passed a bill that allows for the establishment of ESIDs. Property owners within the district can pay for energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements on their properties by way of special assessments. The process is voluntary. Property owners are not required to participate.

Those interested in adopting cats, kittens, dogs and puppies can do so at the reduced rate of $5 on Fridays and $10 on Tuesdays in September and October at the Toledo Area Humane Society.

The non-profit shelter has promoted the reduced rates at different periods this summer with great success.
