It wasn’t a bird, nor a plane, but Superman that motorists saw traveling along Woodville Road last week. Allen Mullins, dressed in a Superman costume, is taking the plight of the nation’s veterans across “the roughest terrain in America” to all 50 state capitals in an effort to raise awareness and start a non-profit organization to help veterans returning from war. The 28-year-old Dalton, Ga., man started his walk Jan. 15 and will walk for 10 years or as long as it takes,  he said. He was on his way to Lansing, Mich., when he stopped at The Press.

 
Oregon seeks grant for sewer rehab, flood relief

Oregon will submit grant applications to the Ohio Public Works Commission to help fund Phase 2 of the city’s Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project, and the Flood Relief Erosion Control Project.

The sanitary sewer rehabilitation project consists of rehabilitating trunk and local sanitary sewers to reduce inflow/infiltration.

Phase I involved lining several sanitary sewers underneath creeks, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman.

“This second phase also includes lining the Wheeling Street trunk sewer between Navarre Avenue and Seaman Road,” Roman said at an Oregon council meeting last Monday.

Phase 2 calls for the replacement of sewers in Cresceus and Mambrino roads, and Dearborn Avenue, he said.

“Last year, we submitted this project, but did not receive funding. There was a lot of competition, mainly from Toledo city projects,” said Roman. “Hopefully, there will be less competition this year. But I certainly want to resubmit it and take a second try at getting it funded.”

 
Haupricht lawsuit

A lawsuit filed by Vietnam veterans advocate Nick Haupricht against U.S. Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur was dismissed on September 17.

Haupricht is seeking $3,458 in Toledo Municipal Court Small Claims Division for money he spent to organize, process applications, and to advertise a ceremony planned to commemorate a section of World War II monument granite being brought to Toledo. The May 16 ceremony was cancelled.

Haupricht claims he was “misguided” by Kaptur’s staff, believing he had authorization to spend the money.

The court cited the Federal Tort Claims Act in dismissing Haupricht’s claim. The FTCA concerns the federal government’s sovereign immunity when its employees are charged with being negligent within the scope of their employment.

On September 23, Haupricht filed a new motion against Kaptur in U.S. District Court asking for an “extension of time to move, plead, or answer.”.
