Saying the state’s position in a lawsuit over where lakefront property is public or private wasn’t substantially justified, the Ohio Lakefront Group is asking to be compensated for attorney fees and related expenses incurred in the seven-year legal battle that reached the Ohio Supreme Court.

The group, which represents about 7,000 residents owning property along Lake Erie, filed a motion in Lake County Common Pleas Court recently seeking $509,453 in attorney fees and $68,791 in expenses.

Since 2005, the City of Oregon had shown interest in purchasing the 15-acre Tschann property for a passive park.

Instead, George and Carrie Tschann are donating the land to Kateri Catholic Academy and Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School.

For generations it was the hub of a working farm.

In the future, its beams will frame a new structure in Vermont.

The dismantling of a 130-year-old barn on Lemoyne Road in Northwood was completed earlier this month, says Jim Intagliata, who purchased the property in June.

A recently completed agreement between the Benton-Carroll-Salem school board and the union representing the district’s teachers will save the district about $300,000, according to Rick Bast, board president.

The new contract includes a roll-back of 2.5 percent on the teachers’ base salary and increases the teachers’ insurance contribution to 15 percent.

Oregon City Council last Monday approved a three-year collective bargaining agreement with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 755.

The agreement states that there are no wage increases for the first year, and a reopener on wages in the second and third year.
