One option in a contract extension proposal for refuse collection in Lake Township includes switching the recycling component to every other week and using wheeled carts instead of the smaller bins used now.

John Minear, of Waste Management, presented the contract proposal to township trustees Tuesday.

Saturday was a very special day for nearly 40 Lucas County developmentally-disabled adults from the Wiley Homes when their annual river cruise takes them up close to the ships in Toledo for Navy Week.

The river cruise and picnic, organized at the Harbor View Yacht Club for the Wiley Homes developmentally-disabled, was rekindled in 2007 by Marie Cousino. At the time, Cousino was entertainment director for the Harbor View Yacht Club Auxiliary. She is still an active HVYC member, and in 2010 served as the President of the International Satin Gavel.

The $11.2 million Wales Road overpass project, which began in May, is starting to take shape.

Residents are noticing mounds of dirt on Wales that will serve as the embankment of the overpasses or “bridges.”

“Three of the hills are already done. I think they’re probably at the final height. They got the dirt there,” said Northwood Mayor Mark Stoner.

It may have been a small thing, but to the members of Oregon City Council, Mayor Mike Seferian and Police Chief Mike Navarre, what young Elijah Meade, 11, did on Sept. 4 deserved recognition.

During its Sept. 10 meeting, council applauded the quick thinking of Elijah, a fifth-grade student at Starr Elementary School.
