       A resident of the Village of Woodville who wants to honor local military personnel may see her wish in place along Main Street by next spring.

        When Beth Wolford, the mother of a 22-year-old son serving in the U.S. Navy, saw banners honoring service members gracing the streets of other towns she brought the idea to Mayor Richard Harman.

        Last week, Wolford and Harman and other residents met to discuss the idea and plan to meet again to shore up details.

        A walking and biking trail will be added to Northwood’s Brentwood Park this year.

        The city awarded a contract for $73,033 to Henry Bergman, Inc., of Genoa, to construct a new walking and biking trail around the perimeter of Brentwood Park, located on the west side of the city. Bids were opened on Aug. 22. City Administrator Bob Anderson signed the contract on Tuesday, Oct. 16.

        The crushed stone trail will be about one mile long and six feet wide, according to Anderson.

        It is expected to be completed by the end of next month.

        Oregon Police arrested a man who allegedly slashed tires in three separate incidences in Oregon, and others possibly in Toledo.

        The arrest was made days after a motorist had reported that a man had gotten out of his vehicle while she was stopped at a traffic light last Saturday and had slashed her tire.

        “There was an incident in Oregon late last Saturday night that has been posted on our social media sites that are now blowing up about it, so we thought it best to give it to you from the horse’s mouth, so to speak,” Oregon Police assistant chief Paul Magdich recently posted on the Oregon Ohio Police Division Facebook page.

        At approximately 10:55 pm on Saturday, a woman traveling East through Oregon, on Navarre Avenue, stopped at the light at the intersection of Lallendorf, according to Magdich. While stopped, she heard a noise. At the same time, her tire indicators began to flash that she had low air in one of her tires.

        The Lake Township Police Department is planning to fill the vacancy in its K-9 unit next year, Mark Hummer, police chief, informed the township trustees last week.

        With a fundraiser donation of $6,250 from GetGo Trucking and funds from a civil forfeiture, the department will likely request the unit be reinstated in the 2019 budget proposal, Hummer said.

        Bruno, the department’s dog for about 10 years, died last year.

       An enterprise zone agreement with Pilkington NSG North America will bring a financial boost to the Eastwood School District but it’s not going to have a major impact on the district’s 5-year forecast, Brent Welker, district superintendent, said last week.

        The Eastwood school board Monday approved the agreement which will result in the company paying $343,000 annually to the school district for 15 years instead of paying property taxes on a planned facility on Pemberville Road, south of Garling Road.
