Ottawa County Common Pleas Court Judge Bruce Winters was incorrectly identified in a May 31 story as municipal court judge.

********
Clay senior pole vaulter Meghan Scharer was the runner-up, not champion, at the Division I district pole vault championship. Whitmer senior Christina Schultz won the event on jumps. They both cleared the same height but Scharer had an earlier miss which gave Schultz the title, even though Baum’s Page (baumspage.com) listed Scharer first. Scharer did win the City League championship this year with a jump of 9-6 and was the district champion last year. Scharer has committed to the University of Dayton for soccer, not volleyball. The Press regrets the errors.

 

 
Concerns raised over delay of overpass project

Northwood sought reassurances from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) that the Wales Road grade separation project will not be delayed beyond 2012 due to plans by the BP refinery to build an electric substation at the site.

In April, ODOT said that construction of the project would be delayed for one year so that the BP can build an electric substation that would replace overhead wires near the site.

FirstEnergy has major power lines at Wales Road that feed electricity to the BP refinery. To relocate the lines would require a shutdown of the plant that would cost ODOT $1.5 million. Instead, BP has a shutdown scheduled for major retooling next year and plans to build a separate substation so it can have an independent feed that will get them off the FirstEnergy line going down Wales Road.

The $14 million project was going to be bid in December, with construction slated next year. The city will now have to wait until 2012.

Administrator Pat Bacon told city council at a meeting May 27 that two local businessmen had discussed their frustration about the delay with State Rep. Randy Gardner at a breakfast meeting at the end of May. They suggested that ODOT do the project in two phases, with the first phase ending at the electric lines. The project would then be completed the following year.
