Home and car invasions consistently spike in the west end of Ottawa County as the holidays approach, said Genoa Police Chief Bob Bratton. The area’s proximity to Toledo as well as rural settings attract the criminal element, he said. The need for quick cash and drug habits drive the crime sprees.

To most people, red and green, symbolize the holiday season, however the Pemberville Hot Flashes will have audiences feeling “in the pink” at a holiday music extravaganza Dec. 18 at 3:30 p.m. at Riverview Banquet Center in Pemberville.

Residents and businesses in unincorporated areas in Lucas County, such as Jerusalem Township, will see a change on their property tax bills next month.

Under Lucas County’s new storm water utility district, residential property owners will be charged a flat rate of $4.06 per month or $24.36 per tax bill, while non-residential customers within the unincorporated portions of the county will be charged $4.06 per month or $24.36 per tax bill for every 5,500 square feet of hard surface area on their property.

Susan Perry found out at a very young age how to do without.

Up North where the pine is plentiful and the rivers run clear and cold, there are two types of music on the radio—country and oldies.

Our family vacation cabin is located, one–mile down a two-track through the Huron National Forest. The area is so remote searching for a cell phone or Wi-Fi signal can be an afternoon expedition. And, as it is seven miles to get to a newspaper box and we don’t have a television, the radio is our sole connection to a weather report and the outside world.
