County conducting disaster preparedness survey
How confident are you that you will be able to communicate with family or friends in the event of a natural disaster even if phone lines are down and email may not be available?

Will your decision to prepare for a natural disaster be influenced more by a government official, non-profit organization, a severe weather or news information source, or residents of your community?

Lake Township police are investigating a Nov. 21 aggravated burglary at a home at 1539 Woodville Road.

According to police, two men entered the home around 11 p.m. – one armed with a knife.

A male resident of the home was cut on his hand and face.

He described one intruder as white and the other as Latino. Both fled after being attacked by the resident’s dog, police said.

The two men fled north on Millbury Road in a white Pontiac Grand Am .

Owens Community College is expanding its reach to area law enforcement agencies by renovating its emergency services training program facilities with their input.

The restructuring will allow local agencies to train at the Oregon Road site in Perrysburg Township at significantly lower prices, making the program more accessible to more communities.

The Northwood Police Department is hoping residents will reorganize and restore the city’s blockwatch program, which has been dormant for the last several years.

“We had one years ago in 1998,” said Police Chief Tom Cairl. “It kind of fizzled out, mostly because people are so busy and don’t have time to participate. The blockwatch is run by residents. The police department helps facilitate the actual meetings.”

The Oregon school board will hold a special board meeting on Monday, December 3, at 7 pm. to formally lay out the final plans for the district’s proposed reconfiguration of Eisenhower and Fassett middle schools.

The board has been looking at the possible reconfiguration since June.
