Block Watch offers tips to keep belongings safe

For Holly Gusky, leader of Block Watch 420-C in East Toledo, the approaching summer weather may be looked at as a good and bad thing.

Although winter heating bills will soon disappear, the switch to warm weather also means a possible rise in crime.

“We have a lot of kids walking the streets in the summer,” Gusky said. “We have a lot of gangs, many not from this area, who start fights with each other. The Greenwood and Potter area seems to be neutral territory for them and we see the fighting in the summer.”

Gusky said that her block watch area, which encompasses Woodville Road, Oak Street, Starr Avenue up to Broadway, not only sees upswings in crime during the warmer months, but also during the holidays.

“Crime comes and goes around here,” Gusky said. “In one week, we have had three cars with the windows smashed. At Thanksgiving time, people broke in and stole TV’s. We had a big rash of crime during the holidays even though we are in a low income area.”

 
In Ottawa County - Electric aggregation on Tuesday’s ballot

Residents in 16 Ottawa County townships and municipalities will decide Tuesday if they want to form a governmental purchasing group to buy electrical power.

Proposals to authorize trustees in 12 townships, council members in three villages, and city council in Port Clinton to enter into electrical aggregation agreements will be on the May 4 ballot.

“What we’re trying to do is get a savings for our residents,” said Wayne Fondessy, a member of Clay Center Village Council.

He said the idea for placing the measures on the ballot came up during the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments winter meeting in Perrysburg.

Ohio law allows communities to form aggregated buying pools on behalf of their residents to purchase natural gas and electrical power.

The proposals in Ottawa County would, if passed, establish “opt-out” aggregation – a program that automatically enrolls local residents unless they individually opt-out of the program.

Townships with the aggregation issue on Tuesday’s ballot include Allen, Bay, Benton, Carroll, Catawba, Clay, Danbury, Erie, Harris, Portage, Put-in-Bay, and Salem; villages include Clay Center, Marblehead, and Rocky Ridge. The City of Port Clinton is also on the ballot

At the recent East Toledo Family Center Renaissance Ball, the East Toledo Neighborhood House Alumni Association recognized Bob Yenrick and William Cummings as Distinguished Citizens.

Born and raised in East Toledo, Bob Yenrick married Dianna Schultz, also a Waite graduate, in 1972. He is the father of four Waite graduates – Robert, Chad, Mathew and Christopher, and has five grandchildren, Rebekah, Skyler, Palmer, Olivia and Sydah.

Yenrick credits his mentors, Robert and Jane Yenrick, Bill Matile, Carl Yenrick and Warren Densmore for the person he is today.

He attended elementary school at the old East Side Central Elementary, Oakdale Elementary and then the New East Side Central Elementary. After graduating from Waite 1970, he attended a four-year apprentice program required by Toledo Edison. During this period, Yenrick played on the last basketball team that Warren Densmore coached at the Neighborhood House.

Yenrick has coached and volunteered in South Toledo, Rossford, at Boys and Girls Clubs, the Friendly Center, Waite, City of Toledo Recreation Program, CYO and the Family Center. He worked with the Family Center to create tee ball, soccer and basketball leagues at all levels. In addition, he coached for nearly 30 years.
