 The Camp Perry National Guard Training Base, home of the National Trophy Pistol and Rifle Matches since 1907, is currently undergoing significant upgrades to some of the most celebrated areas of the grounds.

“There will be a different feel when people come onto post,” said MAJ Michael Yates, base operations manager of the Camp Perry facility since 2014.

Considered one of the most exciting projects on base, the Hough Theatre at Camp Perry has received upgrades to entranceways, restrooms, seating, lighting and the interior as a whole – totaling $1.3 million.

Some of the stage is being improved upon as well, including the orchestra pit, and existing offices and classrooms backstage will be updated, with the hopes of being utilized in the future.

        Two recent incidents involving motorists on I-280 in Lake Township illustrate why a state law that blocks many township police departments from patrolling on interstate highway systems needs to be amended, Mark Hummer, Lake Township Police Chief, said during Tuesday’s meeting of the township trustees.

        Chief Hummer told the trustees he’ll submit a resolution for their consideration at their next meeting to show support for the passage of House Bill 255 that is pending in the Ohio legislature.

        With the spring planting season near, George Jensen is asking area fruit and vegetable growers to think ahead and remember that the produce still in the fields and orchards after the harvest is food for those less fortunate.

        Jensen, also known as Tater, is a Hunger Relief Advocate of the Society of St. Andrew, who’s been organizing volunteer gleaners for about 20 years and is entertaining thoughts of retiring as he approaches his 80th birthday. But not yet.

        The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has announced it will designate the open waters of Lake Erie’s Western Basin as impaired for recreation due to harmful algae and drinking water due to the presence of mycrocystin, a toxin that caused Toledo to ban tap water for two days in 2014.

        The designation would cover the basin from the Michigan/Ohio state line to the Marblehead Lighthouse. Previously, only the shoreline area of the Western Basin and drinking water intakes have been designated as impaired.
