A call to Lake Township police early Monday morning of suspicious vehicles along Lemoyne Road led to the arrest of five men and a juvenile who have been charged with breaking into homes, garages, recreational vehicles, and passenger vehicles as well as auto theft and other offenses.

Police Chief Mark Hummer said officers apprehended the six when they were running from a Lemoyne Road residence.

The head of the Millbury Fireman’s Association says a decrease in the association’s membership and a slow economy were behind their decision to not host the annual ox roast this year.

Jonathan Hart, president of the association, said the membership didn’t think it could deliver a “quality event” this year.

Volunteers sought to help couple hit with medical, financial woes

It has been a rough couple of years, to say the least, for Scott and Cali (Rotruck) Witt, of Gibsonburg.

On July 20, 2010, Scott and his daughter Jenna were in a serious vehicle accident at the corner of SR 51 and US 20 while on their way to the Ottawa County Fair.

Lake Township Police Chief Mark Hummer was misquoted in an article in the Sept. 10 issue of The Press regarding the township’s new contract for emergency phone notification service.

The CodeRED Mobile Alert is a free download for those who have iPhones or Androids.  Subscribers will always receive public safety notifications for free. A $4.99 fee is charged for the option to upgrade to the weather warning portion of the service, which provides the subscriber push notifications of weather warnings specific to their exact location, just moments after an alert is issued by The National Weather Service, according to Stephanie Meyers, marketing manager of Emergency Communications Network.

Poll workers at precinct 420 in Lake Township followed the rules as they were trained during the special election Aug. 7, according to the Wood County Board of Elections, which responded to questions raised by the Lake school board and administration.

In a statement released last week, the elections board emphasizes that no one was turned away from the polling site and that workers were following election rules properly until the board received an opinion from the Ohio Secretary of State office.
