Residents in several area towns are being offered incentives to purchase compact fluorescent lights through a program set up to help consumers save on their electric bills.

Coupons offering discounts on the CFLs are being mailed to residents in the villages of Elmore, Pemberville, Oak Harbor, Genoa, Woodville, Bradner, Haskins, and the City of Bowling Green.

Recker, who was the former administrator of Whitehouse, replaced former Northwood Administrator Pat Bacon, who retired last October.

Mike Godfrey just finished his 22nd year as a teacher in the Eastwood school district, including the last 13 with its Gifted and Talented program.

He's made a positive impact with hundreds of students, but perhaps none more so than Eric Rutherford, a 2008 Eastwood graduate.

“I had Mr. Godfrey six times while I was in school, between fourth grade and senior year,” Rutherford said. “I always enjoyed the way he taught and how he pushed the students.”

Four teachers, Jan Preston, Cindy Avers, Barb Travis, and Barb Smith, will have given a combined 128 years teaching when they retire from Woodmore Schools at the end of this school year.

Jan Preston, who will retire this year after being at Woodmore for 39 years, has been a teacher and a full-time counselor. She has had a great impact on Woodmore students and staff.
