An Aug. 14 barn fire on N. River Road, Pemberville, remains under investigation.
The Pemberville-Freedom Fire Department was alerted to the blaze shortly before 10 p.m. and assisted by crews from departments from Bradner, Wayne and Center, Troy and Woodville townships.
Crews were at the scene for approximately six hours.
It is the third barn fire in the Pemberville area in two months.

A columbarium will be installed in the Lake Township Cemetery next month, Ron Hanely, cemetery sexton, reported Tuesday to the township trustees.
 
Hanely said the site for the 48-niche columbarium has been prepared and Franklin Monument Co. will complete the installation “some time in September.”

Four residents of Bailey Road in Lake Township voiced concerns Tuesday to the township trustees about the impact of a growing pile of leaves and other lawn debris at a parcel along Woodville Road.
 
The residents said they feared the large pile wasn’t being worked properly for compost and were concerned the property owner doesn’t have a suitable drainage system in place.

 Where were you in 1979? 

If you were around back then, you might remember the “don’t look at the sun” warnings that surrounded the anticipated total eclipse of the sun. If you were not around at that time then, please, heed those warnings, and visit the Challenger Learning Center of Lake Erie West in Oregon to get a chance to view a wondrous and beautiful eclipse with your friends and neighbors. 

On Monday, Aug. 21, the U.S. will be treated to a total eclipse of the sun. The eclipse will be visible, weather permitting, across all of North America. The entire continent will experience a partial eclipse lasting two to three hours. Anyone within a 70-mile wide path that stretches through 14 states from Oregon to South Carolina will experience a total eclipse.
