If all goes well, the closed Brunner Elementary School will be in its new owner’s hands by mid-January.

Curtice resident Gary Moritz told the Genoa Planning Committee about a month ago he wanted to buy the building and renovate it for multiple purposes, including a gym area, a rental hall, and a business hub.

More than four years after filing a racial discrimination complaint, a Wood County sheriff’s deputy will have his case heard in court.

The U.S. Sixth District Court of Appeals last week ruled the complaint filed by Sgt. James Kimble against Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn and the county commissioners contained sufficient circumstantial evidence to be heard in trial.

Representatives of police and fire departments studying the feasibility of a regional emergency dispatch center to service northern Wood County visited Crawford County last week to observe the sheriff’s department dispatching operations.

Lake Township’s dispatching center currently contracts with the Village of Walbridge and City of Rossford to handle their 9-1-1 calls.

Oregon is looking into providing geothermal power to local government, school, business and residential buildings as an alternative source of energy.

“We’re continuing to meet with the Port Authority to explore ways we can help create value for Oregon residents and businesses,” said Administrator Mike Beazley. “We’re looking at the Port Authority’s analysis. It’s especially applicable in those places where they’re not really served by natural gas. We started looking at parts of Oregon, really the northwest portions and some to the south and east that really don’t have natural gas options available. They’re served by propane or heating oil. So we’re looking at alternatives, and maybe even lower energy costs for residents and businesses.”
