        The conviction of a man for trafficking and possession of marijuana after being stopped by Walbridge police on I-280 has been upheld by the Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals.

        Scott Donaldson, of Whitehouse, had appealed a decision by the Wood County Common Pleas Court to deny his motion to suppress evidence.

        Property tax collections that help fund the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District are down by about $2.13 million – or about 37 percent, according to B-C-S treasurer Cajon Keeton, who updated the school board on the district’s financial condition before a board vote to place two renewal levies and an earned income tax on the May ballot.

Jeremy Walston, M.D., a 1979 Eastwood High School graduate, is an internationally recognized Professor of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland.

Dr. Walston plays a leading role in setting national and international research and patient care agendas for older adults through his Professorship at Johns Hopkins and through his many leadership roles in the Gerontological Society of America, the National Institutes on Aging, and international organizations such as the World Health Organization. 

        Oregon received a $1.7 million grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation to improve the intersection of Coy Road and Navarre Avenue, the second phase of the Navarre Avenue Safety Improvement project.

       Plans call for new traffic signalization changes and dedicated turn lanes. It will also include widening of Coy.

        Oregon City Council recently approved a Special Use Exception designation at 506 S. Lallendorf Rd. for the reopening of a restaurant/tavern.

        The property was located in an R-2 district. Across from the site is a park district. The property had a Special Use Exception (SUE) on it. But that designation expired because the building was closed and the property was vacant for more than two years.

        The owner, B.J. Lawson, sought to have a new SUE that would allow a restaurant serving liquor on the premises.

        The Oregon Planning Commission last November recommended to council that the SUE be approved. Council held a public hearing earlier this month to discuss the matter.
