 ( Editor's note: At the request of Jim Mlynek and his attorney, the hearing set for May 1 has been postponed. The trustees are expected to re-schedule the hearing during their regular meeting that evening)

  The Lake Township trustees have scheduled a hearing for May 1 to consider a request to change the zoning of two parcels along Woodville Road from R-2 residential to B-2 general commercial.

        Jim Mlynek, who owns Woodville Road Nursery, is seeking the change. He plans to use the parcels to temporarily store leaf piles before composting them at his nursery on the other side of Woodville Road.

        The Village of Walbridge has won another court victory in a contract dispute with a company it retained to install a new liner in the municipal swimming pool.

        The Sixth District Court of Appeals has upheld a lower court decision which ruled the village wasn’t in breach of contract when it partially paid Aquatic Renovations Systems, Inc., for the installation of a new pool liner.

        Tony Everhardt, of Lake Township, couldn’t believe what he was seeing running across his front yard on Sunday, April 15.

        Everhardt, a ham radio operator, said he just happened to glance at some movement on a security monitor in his home on Emch Road and saw what he initially thought was a cat. But upon closer examination, he realized it was river otter.

        “I was talking on my radio. I looked at the monitor and saw it running,” said Everhardt. “My first thought was that it was probably a cat because we have some cats running around here. Then I looked a little closer, and thought, `Wow. That’s no cat.’ You could tell by the pointed tail.”

        Strong winds and heavy waves from a powerful nor’easter pounded the Lake Erie shoreline during the April 14 weekend, leaving considerable debris in its wake.  

        In honor of Mother’s Day, Sunrise Park & Banquet Center, with registered yoga teacher Anne Boyle, will host a yoga class to benefit Hearteat of Toledo Saturday, April 28 at 9 a.m. at Sunrise, 1460 Woodville Rd., Millbury.
