Northwood, Woodville lead in speed enforcement

Two communities in the Press distribution area have acquired a reputation for speed enforcement.

One, Woodville, is home to Speed Trap Diner, an eatery located at the village limits featuring a 1950 DeSoto black and white police car with a cherry on top, which is attached to the diner’s roof. The other, Northwood, has two red-light camera intersections that also nab speeders in addition to red light runners. At the Woodville Road-Lemoyne intersection, there are digital signs that flash motorists their speed, warning them to slow down before the camera shoots their picture.

As you can see, neither community hides their speed enforcement policy. In Woodville, Police Chief Roy Whitehead told a Press reporter he found the diner’s approach humorous and a positive influence on his department’s goal of reducing speed past two elementary schools located on U.S. 20. The four-lane highway has heavy truck and transient traffic.

 
Northwood - Flooding of new ball diamond caused by blue clay

A new, unused baseball diamond in Brentwood Park that has repeatedly been flooded with rainfall since it was constructed last fall was caused by the contractor’s use of a top layer of impervious blue clay.

At a June 3 committee of the whole meeting of Northwood City Council, Administrator Pat Bacon expressed frustration about the floods at the ball diamond.

“It’s pretty much been drained, the water has been pumped off. This saga has been going on too long. I’m at wits end,” she said.

“Currently, that diamond is unplayable,” she added. “We contacted Ohio Excavating, the contractor, numerous times. For one reason or another that they don’t come out is that it’s too wet, and if they bring their equipment out, they’re going to damage the field. So frustration kind of reached a climax this week. The city checked to see what the problem could be.”

Bacon showed council photos of the diamond, which showed a layer of blue clay as the culprit.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency slapped Envirosafe Services of Ohio, Inc., (ESOI) with a $180,000 penalty for multiple hazardous waste management violations at its landfill in Oregon.

The violations, according to Dina Pierce, northwest district media coordinator with the Ohio EPA, occurred between 2007 to 2009.

“Ohio EPA conducts compliance inspections twice a year at the facility,” explained Pierce. “Ohio EPA also has an on-site inspector based at the facility who conducts daily compliance inspections of Envirosafe’s operations. Some violations were found by the on-site inspector during daily inspections, others during the annual inspections and some were reported by ESOI.”

The $180,000 fine covers multiple inspection and record keeping violations involving the containment building, the water line dewatering trenches and the Cell M leachate collection system at Envirosfafe, said Pierce.

They violations include:
• failing to properly operate leachate collection sump pumps;
