 Two area state legislators are throwing their support behind nuclear power.

 Senator Randy Gardner, R- Bowling Green, and Representative Steve Arndt, R- Port Clinton, say the Davis-Besse and Perry nuclear power plants in Ohio are vital to the state’s energy supply.

 “These plants provide clean and reliable power for northern Ohio. They are important to our diverse array of energy sources for residential customers and businesses,” Gardner and Arndt say in a joint statement. “Without these facilities Ohio may become an even more vulnerable importer of power from other states.”

 An increase in the number of reports of child abuse/neglect last year in Wood County can be attributed to problems families face with opiate addiction, according to Maricarol Torsok-Hrabovsky, special projects manager with Wood County Job and Family Services.

The development backs up to I-280 to the south, according to James Gilmore, commissioner of building and zoning. The site is adjacent to the Orchard Villa nursing home.
 
The zoning on the parcel is C-2 General Commercial to the west, and R-3 multifamily on two parcels to the east. The C-2 zoned portion requires a conditional use for multi-family use.

 Contaminated material removed from the former Brush Beryllium site near Luckey will be disposed of at the Waste Management Evergreen Landfill in Northwood and the U.S. Ecology Landfill in Wayne, Mich., the Army Corps of Engineers says in its March newsletter about the remedial project.
