In Lake Township - Traffic enforcement blitz continues

Lake Township police will continue a special traffic enforcement blitz through Jan. 3, according to chief Mark Hummer, who said the enhanced effort is aimed at speeders, drunk drivers, and motorists who fail to yield the right-of-way.

The township in October received a grant of $32,000 through the Ohio Traffic Safety Office to fund overtime pay for office for extra patrols.

The department is concentrating on stretches of state routes 51, 163, and 795 and U.S. 20, the chief said.

From Dec. 1 to Dec. 29, officers stopped 120 vehicles and issued citations to about 70, according to figures compiled by the department.

In November, the department used grant monies to fund 58 hours of special enforcement and stopped 170 vehicles, resulting in the issuance in 75 tickets.

During an 11-hour enforcement blitz over the Halloween weekend, officers stopped 36 vehicles and issued 10 citations.

 
Oregon plans to complete several projects in 2010

Oregon council unanimously passed the city’s operating budget at a meeting Dec. 21.

“I’m encouraged it’s a solid budget,” said Councilman Mike Sheehy.

“I think the process was good,” said Councilman Sandy Bihn. “I just wanted to alert everyone that what we’re doing is projecting our revenues for 2010. I think they’re less conservative perhaps than in the past,” she said of the $16,108,000 budget. “We’re projecting our revenues less than what we’re projecting our expenses without the capital improvement budget. So I’m just cautioning that the economy and what’s going on with the rising expenses may be hitting some kind of a balancing act with us as time goes on through 2010. Hopefully that won’t be the case, but it may be.”

Councilman Jerry Peach said the administration will be watching revenues “very closely.”

“I think that provides us with some reassurance,” said Peach.

Councilman James Seaman, who is chairman of the Finance Committee, said employee wages and contracts are set two years providing some stability to the budget.

When Apel, a Martin resident, put together a DVD entitled “The Journey Begins,” his intention wasn't to make anyone famous or garner any awards. His goal for the video "was our desire to come up with a resource that could help introduce young people to the outdoors and create an interest for them to start exploring it in their own way."

“The Journey Begins” was produced by Jeff and his wife, Esmeralda's, new production company, Straight Arrow Productions LLC. Jeff began filming the DVD in June 2006 and ended in January 2009. Editing and producing the 92-minute video concluded last June.
