Lake Twp. - Trustees want 4-way stop at Walbridge/Pemberville
Written by Larry Limpf

A resolution asking for a traffic survey of the intersection of Pemberville and Walbridge roads has been approved by Lake Township trustees, who would like to see the intersection become a four-way stop marked by flashing stop signs.

The resolution asks the Wood County engineer’s office and Ohio Department of Transportation to conduct the survey.

“The intersection of Walbridge and Pemberville roads in Lake Township continues to experience numerous injury accidents and near miss accidents,” the resolution says. “The…trustees wish to request that flashing red-stop signs be added to the Pemberville Road section, making the intersection a four-way stop intersection.”

Currently, the intersection is a two-way stop on Walbridge Road, which is equipped with flashing red stop signs.

A recent accident at the intersection involved Mark Hummer, the township police chief.

The chief was traveling on Pemberville Road earlier this month when a truck on Walbridge Road pulled out in front of him.

 
Oregon - Bronze Star recipient to take part in memorial

At home in Oregon after serving a tour of duty in Iraq, Ralph Berry spends as much time as he can with his two sons.

“I’m a family man. I love the outdoors and like to take them out whenever I can,” says Berry, an Army sergeant who was awarded the Bronze Star with Valor while serving in Iraq.

The medal sits in a closet and Berry says he rarely thinks about it.

“I’d give it back in a minute if it meant some people would not be shot or injured. I don’t even look at it,” he said. “I was just doing my job. I was in the wrong place at the right time.”

The medal certificate praises Berry for his actions during a battle in which he faced “concentrated and high volume of enemy fire” to provide covering fire that prevented his position from being over run and allowed for the evacuation and treatment of his wounded battalion commander.

The medal was presented by then Major General Raymond T. Odierno, who assumed command of U.S. forces in Iraq in September, 2008, following his assignment as the commanding general of Army III Corps from May, 2006 to September, 2008.

Crystal Bowersox is not the only local young woman who needs your vote to make a dream come true.

Kelsey Perry, a 2006 graduate of Genoa High School, and her fiancé Justin Wehr are among 10 finalists for a dream wedding at St. Lucia Lighthouse in a contest being sponsored by Jasmine Bridal & Coconut Bay Resort & Spa.

Kelsey and Justin are the only couple from Ohio to make it into the top 10, beating out over 30,000 other couples nationwide. Winners receive a dream wedding and honeymoon. Jasmine Bridal will also dress the bride and her entire bridal party.

Perry, who learned about the contest while looking at wedding dresses online, submitted the following entry: “My fiancé and I are like a fairytale relationship, only without the happy ending. We have been dating now for about three years, but have been friends much longer. When we first met, I was dating a real jerk of a guy. He did everything that a man could possibly do to degrade a woman and I mean everything.
