 After plenty of debate and some contentious moments, Oak Harbor council, with the help of Mayor Joe Helle, has decided to lift its moratorium on medical marijuana.  The 3-3 council vote was broken by Mayor Helle, who voted in favor of the ordinance lifting the moratorium.

 A resolution to begin the process of placing a millage request on the November ballot to fund emergency medical service in Lake Township will be on the agenda of the township trustees’ July 5 meeting, Mark Hummer, township administrator, said last week.

 The township contracts with LifeStar for 24-hour service. The current contract will expire in April 2018.

 Members of the Woodmore school board intend to fill the position of superintendent before the start of the coming school year, Corinna Bench, board president, said last week.

 After a brief executive session, the school board Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution to accept the resignation of Robert Yenrick as superintendent.  He was scheduled to officially assume his duties on July 1.

The Toledo-Lucas County Metroparks’ first park with access to Lake Erie — Howard Farms in Jerusalem Township, is currently under construction.


Metroparks public relations director Scott Carpenter says Howard Farms is starting to look more like a park every day. He adds that it won’t be long and engineers will be allowing Lake Erie water to find its way into the newly constructed canals and waterways at Howard Farms.

The national matches will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entry into World War I, known then as “The Great War,” on Monday, June 26, as the Civilian Marksmanship Program hosts the 2017 First Shot Ceremony at one of the key training facilities during the era – Camp Perry, near Port Clinton. 


The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. with a short concert by Ohio’s 122nd Army Band at 9:30 a.m. on the base’s Rodriguez Range and is free and open to public members of all ages.

The ceremony serves as the official opening of the National Trophy Pistol and Rifle Matches, which have assembled talented marksmen and women at the Camp Perry National Guard Training Facility since 1907. The National Matches will first fire on June 26 with the CMP Cup 4-Man Team rifle match and will conclude on July 29 with the National Rimfire Sporter rifle event – with many competitions in between.
