Administrator Dennis Recker unveiled Mayor Mark Stoner’s proposed 24/7 Advanced Life Support (ALS) system for the city at a meeting this month that guarantees a paramedic will respond to an emergency medical call.

Recker presented the proposal, which will be implemented in two phases, at a July 7 council meeting.

Stoner did not attend the meeting.

State Representative Randy Gardner last week said a provision he sponsored in the state budget bill that gives member communities of the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority the means to end TARTA property taxes was a matter of voters rights.

“This is not about me, or TARTA, or Perrysburg,” Gardner said. “This is about voters’ rights and public accountability.”

Oregon and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) have entered into an agreement that allows the city to proceed with the first phase of the Navarre Avenue and I-280 Gateway Landscaping Project.

The first phase includes the construction of the mound, relocation of existing trees, and planting of material supplied by ODOT.

ODOT’s funding for plantings is about $7,000 while the city’s cost for the first phase is $20,000.

After a career as a county extension agent, working with farmers who own modern machinery that plows, plants, and harvests fields of hundreds of acres, Ron Overmyer is helping growers in Africa who labor as subsistence farmers but dream of more.

Overmyer, of Oak Harbor, recently returned from a two-week trip to the Kasese District in Uganda where he held training sessions for maize (corn) growers.

Ask yourself this: When you call your dog, does it come to you or just give you that “whatever” look? When on walks, are you the pack leader or are you being pulled, trying to keep up with your sprinting pooch?

If you and your dog are not seeing eye-to-eye, maybe it is time you decide to get your little one trained.

Toledo’s PET (Prevent, Educate, Training) Bull Project will be holding a dog training clinic July 30 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Navarre Park.
