OK, it may be a taboo subject for some, but many women have a secret they rarely tell anyone about.

For Teresa Sawyer, of Curtice, being diagnosed with Stress Urinary Incontinence was a huge hassle. SUI, according to the Mayo Clinic, is the unintentional loss of urine.

Area motorists will have a chance to test their driving skills while distracted Friday April 6 at the Oregon Municipal Complex.
The Ohio Department of Transportation’s Distracted Driver Simulator will be at the complex from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The simulator challenges participants to navigate streets and highways while talking on a cell phone, texting, and listening to passenger conversations.
The simulator is a component of the transportation department’s road safety campaign Every Move You Make, Keep It Safe, which is part of the state’s goal of reducing road fatalities by 5 percent over the next three years.
In 2010, Ohio law enforcement agencies reported 39 fatalities, 454 serious injuries, and 12,140 crashes that could be attributed to distracted driving.
Robert Momany, vice president of programs and services of the Safety Council of Northwest Ohio, said the council and SSOE are sponsoring the simulator to raise awareness of the danger of using cell phones and texting while driving.
He said appointments are not needed.

 

An investigation into the March 26 fire that heavily damaged a Hanley Road home in Lake Township hasn’t determined the cause of the blaze, said Mark Hummer, township police chief.

The chief said township personnel and the Ohio Fire Marshal’s office conducted the investigation of the home at 3890 Hanley Road.

Students from the University of Toledo, who did a study on how to improve safety at Navarre Avenue and Wynn Road, asked Oregon City council to support their request for a left turn signal at the intersection.

Council has previously discussed whether safety could be improved at that intersection after 16-year-old Clay High School student Cody Van Hersett was killed there in a crash in January. Van Hersett was driving his vehicle west on Navarre Avenue when he collided with a semi that was turning left onto northbound Wynn Road. The truck driver was cited in the crash.
