        A restructuring support agreement between FirstEnergy Solutions, the generation subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp., and FES creditors won’t extend the life of the company beyond the planned de-activation dates of its power plants without legislative assistance and changes in the market, FES president Donald Schneider said last week.

        FES announced Wednesday it had reached the agreement with its creditors that likely will result with ending the company’s bankruptcy case filed last April in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

      A berm around the perimeter of two parcels along Woodville Road in Lake Township has become a point of contention between the owner of the parcels, township officials and residents living next to the parcels on Bailey Road.

        Jim Mlynek, owner of the parcels and the Woodville Road Nursery, is challenging the township’s directive that the berm should be 25 feet wide.

        With a new state law soon taking effect that amends how townships can reclaim unused cemetery lots, the sexton of the Lake Township Cemetery is calming residents about the changes the bill enacts and assuring them their lots aren’t about to be taken over by the township.

        Ron Hanely, in his most recent monthly report to the township trustees, said he’s received several calls about House Bill 454 that was signed last month by former Gov. John Kasich.

        Oregon City Council Monday approved an agreement with the Oregon Economic Development Foundation to enable the organization to acquire additional land for commercial or residential development of a downtown area.  

        The Foundation is the designated entity by the city to do economic development, according to City Administrator Mike Beazley.

        “The Foundation has more flexibility negotiating agreements with potential purchasers who are considering developments,” he said.

        Two Toledo men were charged in federal court after allegedly stealing dozens of guns from Towers Armory in Oregon last November 19.

        Emmanuel Riley, 27, and Sevario Whitaker, 36, were each charged with theft from a federal firearms licensee and possession of a stolen firearm.

        “These defendants are accused of breaking into a store in the middle of the night and stealing dozens of firearms,” U.S. Attorney Justin E. Herdman said.
