        The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency will hold a public information meeting and hearing on Thursday, Jan. 18, at Waite High School regarding a draft air emissions permit for an iron briquette manufacturing facility in Toledo.

        The IronUnits plant plans to locate on the former Ironville Terminal Brownfield site at Front Street and Millard Avenue in East Toledo.

       The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has opted to take a different course in how the electrical  industry should address potential supply threats to the nation’s power grid, rejecting a proposal by the Department of Energy to set pricing rules that compensate coal and nuclear-powered generators for on-site storage of fuel.

        The DOE’s proposal stemmed from a department study that raised questions about the grid’s capacity when stressed by natural disasters. The problem is compounded by the retirement of nuclear and coal-powered plants.

        A bill he co-sponsored to clarify speed limit laws is needed to prevent over-reach by municipal  jurisdictions, State Representative Mike Sheehy, D – Oregon, said last week.

        HB 219 unanimously passed out of the House Transportation and Public Safety Committee in November and Sheehy, the ranking Democrat, and other committee members are awaiting word from House leadership for scheduling a floor vote.

        According to the members of the Oregon’s Dunberger American Legion Post 537 Color Guard, one poem says it all.

        Lawrence Vaincourt’s classic “Just a Common Soldier” is commonly referred to as “A Veteran Died Today” or “A Soldier Died Today.” It was first published in his 1987 Remembrance Day newspaper column, but for the purpose of Dunberger’s Color Guard, “A Veteran Died Today” best serves the purpose.

        Since 1991, award winning Roberts Auto Restoration has been a staple in East Toledo, restoring hot rods and classic cars for clients who like to show them off at showcases around the country. 

        It’s a hobby that turned into a business for Garey Roberts and his son, Kevin. They have restored and fixed automobiles while creating a presence that extends far beyond Northwest Ohio. You’ve seen these type of men go to work on cable television’s classic car shows, and here’s one in our own backyard.
