A century is a long time to keep a business afloat, but Reddish Sporting Goods

has managed to do just that.

Reddish Sporting Goods moved to 400 Main St. six years ago, but the family-owned business has been an East Toledo fixture since 1909.

"We opened up our shop in 1991," said Gary Reddish, who owns the business with his wife, Debra. "Previous to that, my father (Maxwell) had the sporting goods store. When he died in 1990, we put together our own shop and opened in 1991.

 
Jerusalem Twp. seeks options to sheriff patrols

Jerusalem Township trustees are considering alternatives to spending over $300,000 to continue getting patrolled by Lucas County deputy sheriffs.
 
Recently, Lucas County Commissioners decided to cut the sheriff’s budget next year as a result of the recession. Since the Ohio Revised Code does not require the county to provide police protection to township residents, Lucas County deputies will no longer provide patrols to eight townships in Lucas County unless townships pay for the service. The county expects to save $5.1 million as a result. 
 
“The sheriff’s job is to keep the peace and run a jail,” Pete Gerken, president of the Lucas County Commissioners, said last week. “And in tight economic times, we certainly are going back to those core services that we can afford to deliver. Right now, we just can’t afford to pay for townships that don’t pay for their own police services. Everyone’s cutting their budgets, and this is just one of the unfortunate aspects of our budget.”

The Ohio Department of Transportation anticipates completing a speed zone study of the stretch of State Route 51 through Lake Township by Aug. 31.
 
Michael Stormer, ODOT’s District 2 Planning Engineer, informed the township trustees by letter the department has approved their request for the study.
 
The department will notify the trustees of its findings in writing when the study is complete, Mr. Stormer’s letter says.
 
The trustees last month approved a resolution asking for the study and for ODOT to lower the speed limit from 55 mph to 35 between Fostoria Road and State Route 579.
