Lake High top vote getter in Kohl’s Cares contest
Written by Melissa Burden

Can a small high school, located in an equally small town actually win a national contest for $500,000? You betcha!

In what could only be described as a meteoric rise to the top, Lake High School went from 21st place to first during the final hours of the Kohl’s Cares Contest.

Once the final validations are in, Lake will be the recipient of the much-needed donation which will help with the school‘s rebuilding efforts. Announced in August, Kohl’s, in celebration of Kohl's Cares® 10th anniversary, is donating $500,000 to 20 schools, for a total of $10 million.

Kohl's Cares® is the company’s philanthropic program that supports children’s health and education.

Votes for schools from across the country were garnered through the company’s Facebook page. Each person was given 20 votes to cast for schools he or she supports. Each person was allowed to cast up to five votes per school. The contest, which brought in 10 million votes, ended at 11:59 p.m. (CDT) Friday, Sept. 3.

According to Elizabeth Urbanowski, a Lake graduate, entering her school into the contest was the easy part. Fighting to get the word out about Lake and its needs turned out to be a 12-hour-a-day job.

From her El Paso, Tex., home, Urbanowski set out on a media and public relations blitz using YouTube as well as various social networking sites.

 
State expects 300,000 bowhunters this deer season

Approximately 300,000 bowhunters, representing more than half of all Ohioans who hunt deer, are expected to participate in the statewide archery deer hunting season that opens Sept. 25, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife.

During last year's four-month archery season, bowhunters killed 91,546 deer, an increase of 7 percent from the previous year. Crossbow hunters took a record 49,065 of that number and longbow hunters took a record 42,481 deer. Overall, archers accounted for nearly 35 percent of 261,260 deer taken during Ohio's combined 2009-10 archery, muzzleloader and gun seasons.

Licking County led the state in both the vertical bow and crossbow harvest. Coshocton, Tuscarawas, Harrison and Guernsey rounded out the top five counties in crossbow harvest, while Coshocton, Tuscarawas, Knox and Holmes completed the list of top five counties in vertical bow harvest.

From all indications, Ohio’s statewide deer herd grew slightly in 2009, and a modest increase is likely in 2010. The Division of Wildlife remains committed to reducing populations where needed. Through a combination of both regulatory and programmatic changes, progress towards reducing locally abundant herds can be expected.

 
Lake Twp. - Trustees hire firm to design new building

Lake Township officials expect construction to start next month on a new administration building.

The township trustees have retained Normand Associates, Inc., Perrysburg, as the architectural firm for the new structure, which will replace the building on Cummings Road destroyed by the June 5 tornado.

Normand Associates was one of 14 firms to submit a statement of interest and one of five to be interviewed for the project.

Rudolph/Libbe, Inc. will be the general contractor.

Richard Welling, a trustee, said representatives of Normand and Rudolph/Libbe are confident the project can be completed for less than the insured amount on the old building of $1.7 million. The building housed offices for the trustees, zoning inspector, and fiscal officer, a multi-use meeting room with an adjoining kitchen, police station and dispatching offices, and an emergency medical service bay that included living quarters for paramedics.

Mark Hummer, township administrator, said he expects the new building to be up with a roof by December, allowing contractors to proceed with interior work before the weather gets too cold.
