guest of honor on her seventh birthday at the Woodville Township Fire House three days before Christmas.

Just hours earlier, Abbey’s life had been in impending danger after falling through ice into a pond.

Michael Edwards, a Bowling Green State University freshman computer science major, happened to be home with his guitar when the Edwards family Boxer, Tucker, began barking at the front door to be let into the house.

Usually, both Tucker and Abbey are waiting at the door, but this time only Tucker was there.

“When I went to put them back in I couldn’t find Abbey. I looked around for her, went up to my parents’ window and looked out the bay window and saw her in the pond. I went out there and she was trying to get out and she couldn’t get out on the ice from the water,” Michael said.

“I decided I’d go out and see if I could get her but I didn’t think the ice would hold me all the way. So I called my mom and asked her what to do,” Michael continued.

 
Rieter automotive may expand, add to workforce

As 2009 winds down to a close, Oregon is optimistic about the economy.

Rieter Automotive North America, which manufactures fiber padding materials and molded acoustical products for autos, plans to expand its Oregon production facility, according to Gary Thompson, executive director of the Oregon Economic Development Foundation.

“It’s something we’re very excited about,” said Thompson. “The company has been aggressively pursuing additional work. In the short-term, there may be a couple of contracts that would add somewhere between 20-50 jobs. Long-term, because the company has pretty prudent financial management, and a lot of their competitors are filing for bankruptcy, they’re sitting pretty well to increase their market share. We’re just hoping their market share increases so more and more of that work can come to Oregon.”

The company previously expanded about 18 months ago and added 100 employees, said Thompson.

“They’re still hiring, and have not filled all the positions,” he said.

 
Ohio factory farms - Discharge permits under ag department control

Despite the concerns of environmental organizations and local citizen groups, state lawmakers passed and Gov. Ted Strickland signed House Bill 363, which completes the transfer of oversight of large scale farm animal feeding operations to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

The state legislature has been authorizing the agriculture department to assume more responsibility for issuing permits for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) since 2000. The new bill will transfer the permitting authority for the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System for CAFOs to the agriculture department from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.

According to the bill:

• It specifies the director of the agriculture department has the authority to enforce terms of NPDES permits for discharging, transporting, or handling of pollutants, including manure, from CAFOS.
