Lake alumnus nominates school for Kohl’s $500,000 award

She may be living in El Paso, Texas but Lake High School alumnus, Elizabeth Urbanowski, is doing her best to help the tornado battered school.

Last month, Urbanowski, along with Troy Zam, another Lake alumnus, started a Facebook page nominating the school for ABC-TV’s hit show, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

“When I heard about the tornado I was in Texas,” Urbanowski said. “A friend called and I was shell-shocked. I got right on the computer and read about it and I checked on friends. I put up a video on YouTube and got 40,000 hits in a day.”

Because of the success of that video, Urbanowski and Zam decided to nominate the school for EMHE.

“I wanted to help, to do anything,” Urbanowski explained. “You feel so helpless when you are so far away.”

Keeping her eyes and ears open, Urbanowski heard about the Kohl’s contest and decided to submit the school for the national contest.

In celebration of Kohl's Cares®10th anniversary, the company is donating $500,000 to 20 schools, for a total of $10 million. Kohl's Cares® is a philanthropic program that supports children's health and education.

 
Oregon to hold public forum on Big Ditch project

City officials hope to answer residents’ concerns about the impact the Big Ditch project may have on the South Shore Veterans Park at a public forum on Tuesday, Aug. 10, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in city council chambers at the municipal complex, 5330 Seaman Road.

The Big Ditch project calls for improving the drainage ditch along the west side of Stadium Road from Seaman Road to Bayshore Road to increase safety by eliminating the eroding ditch banks along the roadside and to improve the overall drainage system.

Property owners will not be assessed for the project. It is funded by a $319,200 grant and a $478,000 low interest loan from the Ohio Public Works Commission.

The improvements will include the replacement of the ditch and undersized culverts with a large storm sewer, catch basins, and shallow grass-lined swales. At the downstream end of the project, near South Shore Veterans Park, and in areas along open farmland, the project will include enhancing the existing ditch by widening and relocating it further from the roadway to restore it to a more natural stream channel, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman.

Will the third time be the charm for the Woodmore School District?

School board members have voted to place a 2.99-mill, 5-year operating levy request on the November ballot.

Voters rejected an identical levy request last week and in May.

Last week’s unofficial results show the levy fell by 40 votes : Against – 759, For – 719.

Voters in the Ottawa County portion of the district approved the measure by 20 votes: For – 342, Against – 322. But in Sandusky County it fell by 60 votes: Against – 437, For – 377.

Voter turnout in Ottawa County last week was just under 30 percent while in Sandusky County it was just under 39 percent, according to the respective county boards of elections.

Woodmore treasurer Kevin Slates said the boards of elections have told him voting information broken down by precinct will be available for review by Aug. 17.
