Just across Cedar Point Road from Maumee Bay State Park in Oregon, stands a hidden jewel – one that many locals may not even know is there.

Jim and Dee Davies have transformed their property into an oasis for travelers as well as those looking for an overnight getaway.

From the outside, the BayView Bed & Breakfast looks like many of the farmhouses that dot the northwest Ohio landscape.

Stepping inside, it’s clear the innkeepers designed the B&B with comfort in mind.


Northwest Ohio’s oldest and largest ethnic festival is only weeks away, and organizers are looking for some cherubic children to dress up, come to the festival and then stand absolutely, positively, still. At least for a minute.

The 43rd annual German-American Festival will be held Aug. 22-24 at Oak Shade Grove in Oregon. And, as has been the tradition for the past 17 years, on the final day of the festival, organizers are inviting local children to participate in an M.I. Hummel Look-Alike Contest.


Millions have heard and sung along with James Taylor’s 1970s hit song, “You’ve Got a Friend,” (penned and sung by his close friend Carole King).

And millions have seen and purchased DVDs of the television series “Friends.”

The Lake Township Friendship Committee isn’t expecting millions by any stretch of the imagination, but they are expecting the usual big turnout at their annual Friendship Day celebration Aug. 8 and 9 at Friendship Park. The park and its pond are located next to the township hall at 27975 Cummings Rd.
