Chamber guests respond to women’s sports issues
Nearly 100 Eastern Maumee Bay Chamber of Commerce guests got to enjoy a keynote speech from award winning USA Today sports columnist Christine Brennan at a luncheon last week.
Brennan’s column in USA Today makes her the most widely-read female sports columnist in the nation. Brennan, a Toledo native, spoke for nearly 45 minutes and every person at the historic downtown Toledo Club was listening.
Mayor Mark Stoner, who won a fourth term as mayor on Tuesday, said he was a little worried this year whether voters would re-elect him or vote for his challenger, Councilman Dave Gallaher.
After all, Stoner presided over a tough third term, which included deep cuts in personnel and programs as a result of a decrease in the city’s income tax revenue. Also, he and other officials were named in a lawsuit filed by the widow of a resident who had to wait 28 minutes for a rescue squad to help him. He later succumbed in a hospital.
After losing in the primary to electrician Shaun Enright, incumbent councilman Mike Craig held on to his seat in Tuesday’s night general election.
Unofficial results show Craig garnering 3,509 votes (55percent) and Enright getting 2,865 votes (45 percent). If certified, Craig will be entering his second full four-year term. He has already served five years in council.
A major sewer project is the focus of much of his work day, says Keith Kruse, who’s been the village administrator in Woodville for a little more than a year.
The village is implementing what is called a Combined Sewer System Long Term Control Plan required by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
Job and Family Services offices in Wood and Knox counties will embark next month on a collaborative effort to pool applications for food stamps, Medicaid, and other assistance programs.
Five other counties, Delaware, Hancock, Marion, Morrow, and Sandusky plan to join the project in January 2012 and Seneca County may join once it is up and running.
