Bridge and culvert load rating surveys are under way across Ottawa County this summer.

“It’s part of a federal mandate to be expedited in the wake of the Minnesota tragedy,” Ottawa County Engineer Dave Brunkhorst said.

In August 2007, an eight-lane bridge clogged with evening rush-hour traffic buckled and sent vehicles plunging into the Mississippi River. Thirteen died and about 145 were injured.

The children of Ohio need our help and by participating in the modern-day abolition movement, each of us can do our part to end human trafficking. Generally, human traffickers prey on the most vulnerable in society, they exploit them, and they keep any profits from the forced sexual conduct or labor.  Human trafficking is today’s form of slavery, and globally more slaves exist today than during any other time in history. 

The Lake Township Police Department’s participation in a recent multi-agency enforcement blitz netted a large amount of suspected drug-related cash and a gun that had been reported stolen out of Toledo.

Police Chief Mark Hummer reported Tuesday during a meeting of the township trustees that the two-day blitz was a “successful operation.”

Lucas County Auditor Anita Lopez, her staff, and three appraisal firms have completed the physical inspection of 200,000 real estate properties.

“It’s been a very tedious job. It’s been a very stressful at times, and so now we have submitted that report to the state and that mailing will come this summer,” Lopez said.

Oak Harbor Lady Rockets rookie softball skipper Chris Rawski has felt blessed to work alongside some pretty inspirational people throughout his life, from young superstar athletes like Simone Eli, Shana Szypka, Olivia O’Reilly and Samantha Durivage to championship coaches such as the legendary Tom Kontak, Art Eli, Andy Szypka, and Jim Zoltowski.

Still, his greatest inspiration comes from his and wife Alisa’s No. 1 and No. 2 “draft picks,” Morgan and Wyatt Rawski.
