Woodmore High students say ‘Bonjour!’ to France
Written by Keely Siesky

When the 2010-11 school year comes to a close, so will Woodmore High School’s French Club.

This summer, teacher Cindy Avers will be taking her final French Club trip with a few of her past and present French students.

Those who choose to go on this trip will be flying to France for ten days (June 14-23). During those ten days, the students and chaperones will visit Paris, Normandy, Mont. St. Michel, Chartres, Nice and Monaco. They will see the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, visit a French music festival and go to many other historical places.

Avers said she enjoys taking students because they get to see and experience what they’ve been learning in French class while using the language they’ve learned.

“I’ve had many wonderful students that I’ve taught and taken to France,” Avers said.

Teacher Jennifer Haar went on the last trip in 2008 and said she learned a lot about the French culture and language.

Some of the experiences that made the trip memorable were the street artists, the castles and changing of the guard in Monaco.

Avers has been on multiple trips with the French Club and enjoys it most when her students see the Eiffel Tower for the first time and are amazed by the size of it.

Norplas Industries, Inc., plans to expand its facility on Caple Blvd. and add 300 jobs over a three year period.

The company, which manufactures injection molded and painted automotive exterior parts, will expand its existing 400,000 square-foot-building by an additional 30,000-square-feet to increase injection molding capacity.

The $6.5 million project, which is also expected to help retain the company’s 496 positions, consists of $2.5 million in building investment and $4 million in machinery and equipment.

Starting pay for the new jobs will be $13.30 per hour, then reach a maximum of $17.50 after three years, said Northwood City Administrator Pat Bacon.

The company will receive tax credits from the state and the city as part of the expansion project.

The Ohio Tax Credit Authority awarded the company a 55 percent Job Creation Tax Credit for a seven-year term. The value of the tax credit is estimated at $498,147 over the term, and the company would be required to maintain operations at the project site for 10 years.

Whether or not a non-profit organization will donate as much as $50,000 for the preservation of a 101-year-old former school building in the Village of Millbury or instead donate the money for a park may not be known for weeks.

Karen Prymicz, who chairs the 1909 Committee, said she’s scheduling a meeting of committee members to discuss a letter from the current owner of the Millbury School building, asking her to follow through on a “pledge” to donate the funds for the building’s preservation.

Prymicz last week confirmed she received the letter, written by Walbridge attorney Douglas Perras on behalf of Jerry O’Reilly, who purchased the building and property at a public auction in April, 2008.

She declined to comment on the matter, however, until after the committee had met, which she said would be in “the next several weeks.”

The Wood County Auditor’s website lists a sale price of $45,100.
