Five major developers over the past 15 years have promised the East Side a bustling Marina District on the Maumee River. None have delivered.

“A lot of promises have been made on that property. None of them made by us,” Scott Carpenter, director of public relations for the Metroparks Toledo, recently told members of the East Toledo Club at its monthly luncheon. “We’ll follow through.”

 The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will hold what it is calling an “availability session” on March 28 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. for residents in the Luckey area to view plans for cleaning up the former Brush Berylium plant.  

The session will be held at the American Legion Post 240, 335 Park Dr.

Members of the administration and school board of the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District remain convinced there is a need for a new classroom building to meet the educational and security needs of today.

 However, after listening to residents following the defeat of a bond levy last year in August to finance a new building, a levy request planned for the May ballot is being scaled back.  The board has agreed to place a 4.35-mill bond issue on the May 2 ballot to fund the construction of a new K-7 building on a 13-acre parcel adjacent to Oak Harbor High School.

If you are a musician, singer, comedian, magician, story teller, dancer, baton twirler, or, you name it, here is your chance to put your talents in front of an audience — at least for one night.

If you would rather be in the audience, this is for you, too.

For the fourth year, Faith United Methodist Church is hosting an open microphone night and karaoke event on Saturday, February 4 at 6:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public. FUMC is located at 3441 Starr Avenue in Oregon.

U.S. Marine Corps pilot Lt. Col. Sarah Marie Deal Burrow is set to be inducted into the Eastwood Alumni Association’s Eagle Way Hall of Fame.


Burrow, who grew up in Luckey, will be inducted along with athlete Jodi (Juergens) Evans, community member Lloyd Dierker and teacher/coaches Terry McKibben and Jerry Rutherford (bios to come later). The banquet and induction ceremony will be held Saturday, Feb. 25 at Riverview Banquet Hall (American Legion Post 183 building) in Pemberville.

Lt. Col. Burrow, the first female pilot in the corps, is a Pemberville native and 1987 Eastwood High School graduate, lettering in three sports. She joined the Marines in 1992 during her summer break from Kent State University. After studying aerospace flight technology, she earned her commercial and private pilot’s license and is a certified flight instructor.
