A California firm will take over billing for ambulance service in Lake Township.
The township trustees Tuesday approved a resolution to contract with Health Services Integration, Inc., Santa Rosa, California, for collecting fees from ambulance runs.

According to a permit application filed with the Ohio EPA, Rocky Ridge Development, owner of the quarry along State Route 590, is seeking to dispose 3.6 million cubic yards of spent lime into the quarry at a rate of 90,000 cubic yards per year.

Al Thompson is once again adjusting to the mundane life of a retired history teacher.
Still, he thinks there must be something more. Some mission. Some goal bigger than he is. Something to top the nine months he recently spent bicycling around the perimeter of the United States to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity and Save the Children.
Al has spent the last three months doing yard work, playing tennis and golf and riding his bike for short jaunts on Northwest Ohio’s many trails. He is also preparing a program about his latest adventure to be held this Wednesday, 6:30 p.m. at the Carranor Hunt and Polo Club in Perrysburg. (See below for details).
A Millbury woman is searching for her family’s elderly orange and white cat, which has been missing since July 22 from her home in the 2900 block of Millbury Road.
Keri Drain said the cat slipped out of her house when she opened the door to go to work that morning, which also happened to be her birthday.
The cat, named Sharky, has sneaked out on previous occasions, but always returned, she said.
“He would always stay to the left or right of us. He wouldn’t go further than one house away,” she said.
Lake Township police and the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office are asking anyone with information about a township man who’s been indicted on two counts of rape against victims under 10 years old to contact them.
The Ottawa County Grand Jury on Aug. 3 issued a secret indictment against Earl H. Weidner, II, 39, on the rape charges. Authorities sought the secret indictment because Weidner allegedly threatened victims and their families if the victims told.
He is being held on an $800,000 bond in the Ottawa County Jail.
No results found.
