        The Lake Township Police Department is following through on plans to form a Neighborhood Watch program in the Moline area.

        An organizational meeting was held June 15 and a second meeting is scheduled for July 11 at 7 p.m., said Ron Craig, Crime Prevention Officer/Community Policing Officer.

        Several bills that are pending in the Ohio legislature and are pertinent to his district will be discussed by State Representative Steve Arndt, R- Port Clinton, during a town hall forum June 25 at 6 p.m.in Elmore.

        Rep. Arndt said he will provide an update on House Bill 381 which would create the Zero-Emissions Nuclear Resource Program.

At the Navarre Park Shelter House Thursday, developers described an urban playground for all ages is coming to the property once known as the Marina District.

That property on the eastern bank of the Maumee River is where Metroparks Toledo promises to open its newest waterfront park in a matter of a few years.

        Oregon wants to remind residents that solicitors are required to get a permit issued by the city before they go door to door to sell products and services. The long held policy is to help protect residents from scam artists.

        At a recent council meeting, a resident said a salesman came to his door without a permit.

        Fred Gerke, of N. Eastmoreland, said he had asked the solicitor to show his permit.

        “He said I should call the police because he was on record at the department. I asked him again. He said he didn’t have it but had a card. I said `No. I want to see your photo.”’

        Gerke said few residents know that solicitors must have permits with photo IDs.

        Oregon City Council recently approved an agreement with the Lake Erie Foundation to fund up to one-third of the cost of the Lake Erie Economic Impact Analysis and Western Lake Erie Report Card.

        Lucas County, Toledo and Oregon will each provide one third of the funding for the project.

        The legislation is considered an important step in the ongoing efforts to find solutions to the long term algae challenge in the lake. The goal is to follow the successful model developed in Chesapeake Bay that dealt with similar environmental challenges, and has now turned a corner toward improvement.
