Oregon’s Zena Cole has her eyes on Olympic gold.
 
Zena qualified earlier this year for Team USA and will compete in the London 2012 Paralympic Games in August.
 
The games will be held two weeks following the Olympics. More than 4,200 athletes from 165 countries will compete in such sports as swimming, volleyball, rowing, fencing, rugby, shooting, cycling and track and field. There will be live television and on-line coverage.

District 3 Councilman Mike Craig is asking the Mayor Mike Bell administration to hold off on demolishing three swimming pools until more options can be explored.

Craig was reacting to a newspaper article last week in which a city deputy mayor was quoted saying that four pools, all in Craig’s district, were to be demolished.

A resolution to place a millage request on the November ballot to fund police department operations was approved Tuesday by the Lake Township trustees.

Rather than a renewal, the trustees agreed to place a 1.4-mill replacement levy before voters, meaning the levy, if approved, will be based on current property valuations in the unincorporated area of the township instead of the valuations when it was first passed in the early 1980s.

So what hasn't Waite graduate Holly Vargo-Brown accomplished during her long involvement with Ohio State synchronized swimming team?

“With a coffee mug in one hand and a bright smile on her face, she is a renaissance coach, just doing it all. Not only is she one of the most important pieces to the Buckeyes' success over the past 19 seasons, but she is constantly on call, doing all the little things that make any intercollegiate program run smoothly and successfully,” states an OSU athletics biography.

The Lake Township trustees have scheduled a hearing for July 17 to consider a zoning application from McIIvaine, Inc. to rezone about 7.2 acres on Lemoyne Road.

The company wants to change the zoning from R-2 residential to B-3 Highway for the property at 30555 Lemoyne Rd.

The hearing is scheduled to start at 6 p.m.
