 The Woodmore school board will again be looking for a superintendent for the district.

 Jay LeFevre, who was hired in August on an interim basis, has announced he’ll be leaving for personal reasons.

 Is the financial condition of the Woodmore School District stable enough to reinstate some of the positions that were cut two years ago as part of an austerity move to offset a looming deficit?  

The agenda for the school board’s Feb. 21 meeting will include discussion of four positions, including a curriculum/testing director, groundskeeper, tech integration specialist/teacher, and an elementary school teacher.

Clean Energy Future, LLC President Bill Siderewicz says his company has formed a team consisting of four major players from around the world to advance the continued development of Oregon’s Energy Center Project. 

That includes financing for a second $900 million 960 megawatt gas-fired electricity-producing power plant. The first plant, an 800-megawatt facility, is already under construction.

The second project is expected to need approximately $900 million in financing, including $400 million in equity and $500 million debt.

Clean Energy Future-Oregon, LLC President Bill Siderewicz says once its second gas-fired electricity producing power plant is up and running, the two power plants will have a total “ripple” effect of $28 billion to the local economy.

Siderewicz says each power plant has a lifetime 40-year impact on Ohio, measured at $14 billion per plant.

As part of its Oregon Energy Center (OEC) Project, a new 955 megawatt gas-fired electricity production project will be constructed east of N. Lallendorf Rd., at the end of Parkway Rd., and immediately south of the existing railroad line.

Under current plans, the facility will be financed by January 2018, break ground in February 2018 and be fully operational by June 2020. Its wholesale electricity output will be adequate to meet the power needs of about 900,000 homes.

For decades, East Toledo residents have known their local post office to be on or near Second Street. 

That likely will not change, but the U.S. Postal Service wants to move Toledo’s Station A into another nearby building.

Currently at 618 Second Street, the plan is to move the post office to a now vacant space between a beauty salon and beauty supply store in the Toledo Food Center shopping plaza on Main Street. That property is adjacent and its entrance located just around the corner from the current location.

Toledo District 3 councilman Peter J. Ujvagi believes the post office has been at Second Street since the 1920s, but it is believed that it was originally located at what is now the closed VFW building across the street before moving to its current location about 70 years ago, but Station A’s history dates back much further.
