Three Indiana men face charges of drug possession after Lake Township police arrested them at the Super 8 Motel, Latcha Road.

Sgt. Scott Sims said the men were found with 700 pounds of marijuana, which police have estimated the street value at approximately $850,000.

Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Director Scott Nally says after a rainfall, up to eight billion gallons of raw sewage enters Lake Erie. Nally said three billion gallons enters from Michigan alone.

Ohio state officials are appropriating $3 million dollars to create the Healthy Lake Erie Fund in an effort to establish regulatory control with the long term goal of reducing pollution entering the lake.

A new pirate ship playground is expected in Genoa around mid-July.

“It’s been ordered and should be here sometime in the middle of July,” said Village Administrator Kevin Gladden. “It’s a little later than I had hoped, but we’ll have it.”

Family’s vigil credited with saving life of man with brain injury

Danny Katschke is alive today because his life was saved once by a stranger and a second time by the watchful eyes of his family.

If the first six months of this year are any indication, voting by members of Walbridge Village Council in the next six will follow a pattern on one issue – Mayor Dan Wilczynski’s attendance at council meetings.

If the pattern holds, councilman Nathan Eikost – as he has eight times in the first half of the year  - will make a motion to excuse the mayor’s absence if the mayor is unable to attend a meeting, and the ensuing vote by the six members of council will end in a 3-3 tie, which isn’t enough to approve the motion.
