        The Wood County auditor’s office is advising property owners enrolled in the Current Agricultural Use Value program of changes to how land used for conservation purposes is being appraised.

        Auditor Matthew Oestreich said the 2018 CAUV renewal forms have been mailed to property owners currently enrolled in the program. CAUV is a differential real estate tax assessment program that lets farmland owners have their parcels taxed according to its value in agriculture, rather than full market value

       The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has until Jan. 10 to decide what action to take on a proposed pricing rule for the generation of electrical power – a decision that could influence the future of the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station.

        Rick Perry, secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy, has agreed to a 30-day extension to his proposal that the FERC adopt rules requiring its markets to develop reforms to fully price generation resources to maintain the reliability of the nation’s electric grid.

       After receiving a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation,, officials in the Village of Elmore have moved a village-owned nativity scene from Ory Park, where for years it was displayed during the Christmas season, to the front yard of a resident on Rice Street. The letter advised the village that placing the display on a public park was unconstitutional.

        However, the scene could be back at Ory Park next Christmas, Mayor Matt Damschroder says.

During this time of year, amidst the Christmas shopping and all of the obligations that come with the Christmas season, it's easy to forget about those who are less fortunate and struggling to get by.

Fortunately, we have organizations like the Old Newsboys Goodfellow Assocation who seek donations by selling newspapers during the holiday season in an effort to help those who are less fortunate. Whether it's donations that range from as low as 25 cents to 50 dollars, they add up and make a difference. 

Christmas and the holidays in general are a time when family and friends get together to celebrate the bonds they have with each other.

The season is also a time when we bring out the best food possible to feed our souls.

For many, especially those with Hungarian roots, nothing says “Christmas” more than fresh kolbasz, hurka and head cheese. In fact, the lines of customers out the door at Takacs Grocery and Meats shows many are willing to make the pilgrimage to the old neighborhood in East Toledo to bring home and enjoy their culinary history.
