        A public forum featuring a panel discussion about the opioid epidemic drew about 100 people to the auditorium at the Northwood Schools, Arts, Athletics and Administration Building on Lemoyne Road on Oct. 26 to hear about drug addiction that is destroying lives across the country.

        The panel included representatives from Bay Park Hospital, law enforcement, first responders, a recovering addict, and a couple who lost their son to an overdose.

        A common theme throughout the discussion was the significance of raising public awareness and removing the stigma associated with heroin addiction.

        Carroll Township in Ottawa County is assured of new faces on its board of trustees in 2018 with no incumbents on the ballot in Tuesday’s election.

        Richard Keiser, Jordan Moore, Sandy Shearon and Andrew Thompson are in the race for two seats on the three-member board.

       With few exceptions, local races in the Nov. 7 election for seats on village councils, school boards and township boards of trustees in Wood County are marked by a lack of competition.

        Incumbents dominate in Tuesday’s race for four seats on Helena Village Council but only one name will appear on the ballot.

        The name of incumbent Connie Carnicom is on the ballot but to fill the other three seats voters will have to write in the names of Paul Damschroder, Dean Hetrick and Leland Reimer, who are also incumbents.

        Voters in the Woodmore School District will put at least one new face on the board of education in Tuesday’s election as two incumbents have decided to not seek re-election.

        Corinna Bench and Joe Liszak will be stepping down from the board and their seats are being sought by Chad Bringman, Jan Busdeker and Andy Miller.
