       About 1,500 bicyclists will pedal their way to Oregon in June as part of the Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure (GOBA) tour.

        “We are eagerly looking forward to coming to Oregon,” Jeff Perrion, the group’s director, told Oregon City Council on Monday. “We are eagerly looking forward to coming to Oregon June 20-22, which is Thursday through Saturday.

        Toledoans Emanuel Riley, 27, and Sevario Whitaker, 36, were charged with theft from a federal firearms licensee, possession of silencers not registered to them, possession of stolen firearms, and possession of firearms after being convicted of a felony, according to the Department of Justice, U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Ohio.

        A federal firearms licensee doing business as Towers Armory was burglarized on November 19. Approximately 46 firearms, six suppressors and four gun bags were missing from the store. Video surveillance from the store showed two men entered the store at approximately 3:24 a.m. after gaining access through the ventilation system on the roof and began removing firearms. They returned to the store several times in the early morning hours and continued removing firearms.

        The administration of Woodmore schools is dedicating a portion of its latest community newsletter to explain its response to a perceived online threat on Feb. 6.

        That morning the administration received an alert from Social Sentinel, a company that monitors social media. The alert cited a message from an anonymous Twitter account that said, “Elmore’s school hours are 8 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Remember this just in case you’re thinking of shooting it up. All shooters welcome!”

        Legislation that reauthorizes $6.5 million annually through 2024 for the protection of migratory birds has been passed in the U.S. Senate.

        Sen. Rob Portman, R- Ohio, a co-sponsor of the Migratory Birds of the Americas Conservation Act, said it gives the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service the means to promote long-term conservation, research, monitoring and habitat protection for more than 380 species of migratory birds.

        Despite having reached a tentative agreement with creditors that may stave off bankruptcy, the subsidiary of FirstEnergy Solutions Corp. that operates the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station has filed requests with federal regulators to amend operating licenses and continue preparations for permanently shutting down the power plant.

        FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Co. has recently requested amendments from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that would:

-Modify the licenses to reflect the facility’s condition when permanently defueled, which will require fewer systems and components.

- Modify the plant’s post shutdown emergency plan to adjust staffing needed when the plant ends operations.
