Elmore going green for energy summit
The summit is scheduled to coincide with Earth Day on April 15, Mayor Lowell Krumnow said.
The village is organizing the event in the hope it will draw local businesses that manufacture or offer green energy, bio-friendly, and energy-efficient products and services.
Floyd Hagedorn has been the unofficial historian of First St. John Lutheran Church for about half of his 81 years, and he’s been a member of First St. John his entire life.
He has painstakingly assembled a detailed account of the church’s history, beginning in 1861. Abraham Lincoln had just been elected to the presidency in 1860, and the church was organized with eight charter members just after the start of the Civil War.
Two Northwood firefighters resigned their positions recently after the fire chief recommended they be dismissed.
Stephen M. Romstadt and Phil J. Wojcinski recently submitted their resignations after they were found guilty by Perrysburg Municipal Court in separate incidents last year. Romstadt, who was district fire chief of Station 2, was charged with domestic violence and assault last April. The court dismissed the domestic violence case against Romstadt on Sept. 13 last year. The court found Romstadt, who is the brother of Fire Chief Tim Romstadt, guilty of assault after he pled no contest to the charge on September 13.
Spending hour after hour in the weight room has certainly paid off for three local high school boys.
Anthony Dodd, an Oregon resident and a senior at Toledo Christian High, competed in the Division 4-5-6 state power lifting championships on March 12 at Kenton High School and set new state records in the squat and dead lift.
Dodd, who competed in the 210-pound weight class, had a 700-pound squat and a 605-pound deadlift. He won his weight class with a combined total of 1,630 pounds, which included a 325-pound bench press.
Barb Runion can sum up the Village of Woodville’s financial situation in two words: “real tight.”
Runion, the village’s clerk-treasurer, like other officials in area municipalities and townships, is bracing for a cut in local government funds from the state, which will result in reductions to the general fund budgets of towns for services ranging from police protection to maintaining cemeteries.
In 2010, Woodville received about $108,254 in local government funds. A 25 percent cut – about $27,063 – would be a tough hit to sustain, she said, particularly when another 25 percent cut in the following fiscal year has been proposed.
