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.

Robert Anderson, Northwood’s new administrator, is happy to be back home in northwest Ohio.

Anderson, who has held the position of administrator in Columbus, Georgia, Marion South Carolina and, most recently, East Jordan, Michigan, is from the area. He graduated from St. Francis de Sales high School and Ohio State University.

Oregon City Council on Monday approved an agreement with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for funding from the Federal Highway Administration (FHA) for the bid and construction of LUC-Stadium Road Bike Path – Phase 2.

It will mark the last section of bikeway between Pearson Metropark and Maumee Bay State Park, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman.

The results of the most recent testing of the Sandusky Bay and Sandusky River for the presence of silver carp environmental DNA indicate 20 of 150 samples are positive, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources has announced.

The ODNR, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers collected the samples from the bay and river on July 30 and 31 as part of an extensive effort earlier this summer to collect data on Asian carp in Sandusky and Maumee bays in western Lake Erie.

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.
