Football players honored for suicide prevention walk

Former University of Toledo football coach Tom Amstutz once told the Eastern Maumee Chamber of Commerce that his student-athletes spend more time in the classroom than on the football field.

He was not referring to their studies — he meant their involvement in leadership activities and classes specific to football, such as seminars on how to deal with media.

There is one local high school football coach who also thinks out of the box when it comes to leadership skills for his student-athletes.

Eastwood gridiron coach Jerry Rutherford and his players were honored at a board meeting Monday night for their continued participation in Bowling Green’s Walk for Hope/Out of the Darkness Walk over the last couple years. The event was sponsored by the Wood County Suicide Prevention Coalition.

Oregon council last Monday passed a budget for next year that is among the smallest ever due to the lingering economic recession.

Administrator Mike Beazley said there were three hearings on the budget in the last few weeks.

“The greatest challenge that Oregon faces is that our revenue has declined,” said Beazley. “This will be the smallest budget passed by the City of Oregon in the last five years. I can’t find a time, going back through the records, that we passed a budget that was smaller than the previous five years.”

The budget also forecasts the smallest revenue that will be collected by the city in the last six years, he said.

“Our budget is smaller and our revenue has declined,” he said.

Following two deaths in Oregon in the past few weeks due to accidental fires, Oregon Fire Chief Ed Ellis is urging the public to exercise caution during the holidays to prevent further tragedies from occurring.

“Fire safety is something that the public needs to be reminded of constantly,” said Ellis.

Paul Mullen, assistant fire chief, said this season seems to be worse than in previous years.

“It runs in spurts. Unfortunately, we lost a child a few weeks ago because of a fire caused by a burning candle. It makes people a little more tense,” he said.

Among the threats at this time of year are decorative lighting, live Christmas trees, burning candles, and unattended children.

“Everything together is one big problem,” said Mullen.

Recommendations to avoid fire hazards include the following:
