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.

Scientific research shows that reading and hearing about success stories can

reduce stress, increase feelings of happiness, and is good for your mind-body-spirit health.   

Of course, famous people have success stories, especially if they have had to overcome much adversity.  Stories in the media of such stars and their families captivate many of us, but the chance of running into these celebrities in Toledo today is scant, unless Toledo born actress Katie Holmes happens to visit, or M*A*S*H star Jamie Farr, or famous feminist/ political activist Gloria Steinem. However, this weekend you’re more likely to run into Del Ackerman visiting his hometown to connect with his roots during the huge Ackerman-Hecklinger-Cook family annual reunion. Del’s wife, Nancy, also born and raised here in Toledo, will stay behind in Naples, Florida to run the family business.

 
Bacon retiring - Northwood begins search for new administrator

Northwood is advertising for a new city administrator to replace current administrator Pat Bacon, who is retiring in October.

Mayor Mark Stoner said the city has placed an ad in the Ohio Municipal League publication for the administrator position. “We already received six resumes,” he said.

Candidates have until Aug. 14 to submit resumes to the city, he added.

After the deadline, city council will narrow the field to seven candidates to be interviewed, said Stoner.

“What’s happened in the past is that council chooses the final three, then leaves it up to me to make the final choice,” he said.

Bacon is retiring after 30 years of public service.

She has held the administrator’s position for nearly 10 years. She was administrative coordinator for the previous administrator, Chuck Curtis, before she was picked for the position.

Council had passed a motion at a special meeting last month to authorize advertising for the position.
