        The Ottawa County Vietnam War Commemoration Committee is sponsoring a visit of the traveling Vietnam wall May 31 – June 3 at Camp Perry, near Port Clinton.

        An honor escort for the wall will assemble May 30 at 3:30 p.m. at Oak Harbor High School and depart at 4:30 p.m.

       A dedication ceremony was held May 22 for the latest barn to be included in the Sandusky County Historic Painted Barn Trail.

        The barn is located near the Village of Woodville at 770 E. Main St. and features an image of former Woodville Township resident Tom Henricks, a colonel in the U.S. Air Force and a four-time shuttle astronaut.

        After walking about six miles of the dike system in Jerusalem Township, David Bench has some concerns.

        “We walked from the Cooley Canal up to Route 2. We then walked along Route 2 to Ward Canal,” Bench, a township trustee, said.

        Engineers from the Buffalo District of the Army Corps of Engineers were conducting the inspection.

                   Petty Officer James Campbell of the United States Coast Guard will be the keynote speaker at the East Toledo Club’s 84th annual Raising of the Flag to be held Monday, 7:00 a.m. at the Christ Dunberger American Legion Post 537 in Oregon.

         The honor guard will raise the flag at 7:00 and a free breakfast for veterans will follow. All veterans are invited.

        A tax abatement agreement between Lake schools and First Solar, Inc., has temporarily eliminated the need for the Lake school board to seek additional property tax millage - possibly as early as this November, Tim Krugh, board president, said Monday.

        The school board approved an abatement incentive package that exempts the company from paying property taxes for 15 years on a planned manufacturing facility in Lake Township at the intersection of State Rt. 795 and Tracy Road.

        In lieu of the property taxes, First Solar is agreeing to pay the school district $898,000 annually for 15 years.
