Oregon council backs Beazley as administrator

Oregon city council voted 6-0 at a special meeting Jan. 21 for Mayor Mike Seferian’s appointment of Michael Beazley as the new city administrator.

Council member Mike Sheehy was not present at the meeting.

Seferian said he had spoke earlier with Sheehy, who had expressed “his strong support” for the appointment.

Beazley, who is currently the administrator of Lucas County, will start his new job in March for a period of five years.

Seferian said Council member Sandy Bihn felt more comfortable if the city approved a term for Beazley’s contract.

“She was comfortable with five years. Mr. Beazley was comfortable with a five year term,” said Seferian.

Beazley, who did not submit a resume for the position, beat out 60 candidates who had submitted resumes to the city by the Dec. 15 deadline.

Seferian, an independent who beat incumbent Marge Brown for mayor last November, has said he had his eye on Beazley, a Democrat, since former City Administrator Ken Filipiak left soon after the election.

Second cousins Richard Kiss and Joe Kiss made a vow that a sick bald eagle they

rescued when fully recovered would be released back into Jerusalem Township.

Rescued near Cedar Point Road in late November, the male eagle successfully recovered at a non-profit wildlife rehabilitation center, Back to the Wild, in Castalia. Last Sunday, it was released in the township at Maumee Bay State Park.

“I was adamant about staying in touch with them so we didn’t miss the opportunity. I insisted they bring it here. Absolutely,” Joe Kiss, a township trustee and business owner, said.

There to see the eagle fly off into the sunset, so to speak, were the two cousins, Joe Kiss’s wife and children, Back to the Wild founders Bill and Mona Rutger, one of their staff members, and their families.

When the cousins rescued the bird, its health and behavior was so poor chances of survival were not clear. When it was released, those present said they hardly recognized the bird.

 
Credit card theft conviction upheld

The Sixth District Court of Appeals has upheld the conviction of a Perrysburg man who was charged with forgery, receiving stolen property, and misuse of a credit card in a case stemming from break-ins of vehicles parked at the Perrysburg YMCA in 2007 and 2008.

The appellate court upheld the conviction of Martin Gaines, who had been charged with trying to purchase merchandise at the Pilot Travel Center in Lake Township and a Kmart store in Perrysburg with stolen credit cards.

According to court transcripts, a YMCA member on Dec. 18, 2007 reported her purse stolen after someone had smashed a window of her parked vehicle. When she arrived home after the break-in, she discovered her credit card had already been used to purchase an item costing more than $500 at Kmart.

About two weeks later, another Y member reported a vehicle break-in and purse theft. A man later identified as Gaines attempted to use her credit card that day at the travel center to buy CB radio equipment. After the credit card was declined, the salesman noticed the card was issued in the name of a woman and took the card to his manager. When he returned to the counter, the man had left the store.
