Lake High equestrian team wins state championship
Written by Mark Griffin

Lake equestrian team coach Connie Workman knew just what to say to her eight-member squad last Sunday at the Ohio Interscholastic Horsemanship Association (OIHA) state meet at Vail Meadows.

“A couple of them were nervous,” she said. “I just said, 'do what you've been doing for the last three weeks.' This was the first time any of them made it that far and they were excited.”

Workman's brief pep talk worked, because Lake took first place in District II, Division II. Lake scored 98 points in its division to outscore Anthony Wayne (89 points) and Tinora.

“It was exciting because it was real close,” Workman said. “Our other meets weren't that close. They pulled together and they're all good showmen. They just continued what they did the last three weeks. They are very devoted and I have great parents, and they are really into it. They've done a good job and really earned their way.”

Workman's daughter, Jenna, is a senior at Lake and a member of the equestrian team. Other team members who attend Lake are junior Morgan Collins, sophomore Ashley Landers and freshmen Ellen Johns and Alissa Knieriem. Lake's squad also includes Riley Herman, a sophomore at Woodmore, Northwood senior Holly Slater and Gibsonburg junior Demitrius Ernsberger.

Lake clinched its first appearance in the state meet after taking first place at District II's final show event, on Sept. 26 at the Wood Country Fairgrounds in Bowling Green.

 
Groundbreaking Oct. 15 - Lake Twp. building to be done next May

A groundbreaking ceremony for a new Lake Township administration building is scheduled for Oct. 15 at 10 a.m.

The township trustees have approved contracts for hiring an architectural/engineering firm and a general contractor for the construction of a new facility to replace the building destroyed by the June 5 tornado.

The trustees last week agreed to retain Normand and Associates, Inc., Perrysburg, as the architect for the building at a cost of $105,000.  Rudolph Libbe, Inc., Walbridge, was retained as the general contractor for $1.7 million.

The building will be slightly larger than the former building, which housed the police department and dispatching center, trustees’ offices, emergency medical service personnel living quarters, and the offices of the zoning inspector and fiscal officer.

The new building will be constructed at the same location at 27975 Cummings Road but will be larger, covering 14,183 square feet plus a porch area of 720 square feet.

A completion date of May 15, 2011 is included in the resolution to hire Rudolph Libbe.

 
Some raise concerns over Oregon school levy

Proficiency scores, teachers’ salaries and absenteeism were among the issues raised by residents with the Oregon school board at a public information forum last week on the proposed 5.9-mill five year emergency operating levy that will be on the November 2 ballot.

The forum was held before a regularly scheduled school board meeting on September 30.

The district faces a $2 million deficit for the 2011-2012 school year. If passed, the levy is expected to bring in $3.4 million annually.

In the last three years, the district has cut $8 million from the budget.

If the levy does not pass, the district plans to cut 20 additional teaching and staff positions.

One resident asked why Oregon teachers rank eight, or “dead last” in attendance among area school districts in the 2009-2010 school year, yet they rank second in salary.

“It kind of looks like we’re rewarding bad behavior,” said the resident.
