Gubernatorial candidates oppose ballot measure
Written by Larry Limpf

Candidates vying to be Ohio’s next governor have found an issue they can agree on.

Incumbent Democrat Ted Strickland and his Republican challenger John Kasich have both declared their opposition to a ballot measure planned by the Humane Society of the United States and other animal advocacy groups for the November election.

The candidates spoke last week to about 400 farmers, legislators, and guests at the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation Ag Day event in Columbus.

The Humane Society is backing a petition for a proposed amendment to the Ohio constitution that would establish certain rules for the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board.

An article in the March 1 Metro edition of The Press incorrectly stated that Dr. Leah Dorman, a former veterinarian with the Ohio Department of Agriculture, was an appointee to the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board.

She hasn’t been appointed to the board. She will discuss State Issue 2, which established the board, at the Ottawa County Agriculture Community Breakfast on March 26 in Oak Harbor.

 
River East corporation closes doors after 35 years

After 35 years and millions of investment, River East Economic Revitalization Corporation has closed its doors.

The East Toledo-based Community Development Corporation assisted and educated the local business community, created and maintained jobs, operated a business incubator, and redeveloped existing buildings and vacant land, in particular, brownfield sites.

A recent real estate assessment on the Lucas County website had 53 properties listed as being owned by River East Corporation, but former board members say those properties have been sold or have been negotiated for sale and are awaiting closing.

“Fifty-three properties is a lot — that basically has been whittled down to nothing,” said Neil MacKinnon, an east side businessman who served over 10 years on the board. “We didn’t file for bankruptcy and we worked out agreements with the creditors and everybody has been very creative working with us.”

River East is best known for The Docks in International Park, the renovation of the historic Weber Block at Main and Front, Starboardside Condominiums, and its role in nurturing the proposed Marina District.
