Governor Ted Strickland has appointed 10 persons to the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board – a panel created by the passage last year of an amendment to the state constitution.

The governor’s appointments include: Tony Forshey, a veterinarian with the Ohio Department of Agriculture; Leon Weaver, owner/operator of Bridgewater Dairy; Jeff Wuebker, a farm owner and president of the Ohio Soybean Association; Bobby Moser, dean of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at the Ohio State University; Jeffrey LeJeune, associate professor of Food and Animal Health Science at the agricultural research and development center at the Ohio State University; Harold Dates, president of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Cincinnati; Jerry Lahmers, a veterinarian and family farm owner; Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, executive director of the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks; Robert Cole, a former official with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Stacey Atherton, co-owner of a farm and member of Ohio Dairy Producers and Ohio Farm Bureau.

Robert Boggs, director of the Ohio Department of Agriculture, is to be chairman of the board.

The speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives and president of the Ohio Senate will also each appoint someone to the 13-member board.

 
It seems everyone knew Birmingham native Andy Rakay

Hungarian Club president Michael Csizek said the late Andrew J. Rakay was always the “life of the party” and “center of attention.”

“The guy was amazing,” Csizek said. “He didn’t realize he was 80 when he died. He thought he was 16, you know, the guy had so much energy. He had a story for everything. He knew everybody in town. If you lined his friends up from any group of person there is, any ethnic group, any person, Andy was friends with them.”

This past winter while Rakay was a patient in Toledo Hospital, he had a visitor — Mike Bell. One day later, Bell was sworn in as Toledo’s mayor. Bell once served under Captain Rakay when both were with the Toledo Fire Department.

After the 80-year-old Rakay passed away on January 14, at his funeral service were Councilmen Mike Craig and George Sarantos, former mayor Donna Owens, and “just about every politician in town,” said one friend.

The evening before his funeral service, the fire department conducted last alarm services at the funeral home.
