Eastwood schools - CO2 levels called not a safety risk for students

Carbon dioxide levels in Luckey and Pemberville schools in the Eastwood district are well below the threshold that would pose a safety concern for students, according to the administration, which has retained consultants to plan a long-term solution to the problem.

“We have established baseline numbers in both buildings and know that without students, those buildings are fine,” superintendent Brent Welker, said in a newsletter to residents.

Thomas Lingenfelder, principal of Webster Elementary School, asked for assistance in evaluating the air quality at the school last month after some students passed out during a music program.

An investigation by the Wood County Health Department determined there were elevated levels of carbon dioxide in several of the classrooms. The health department later determined the source was the students and teachers in each classroom and that simply venting the rooms with fresh air from the windows lowered the carbon dioxide to levels considered acceptable.

Two local entrepreneurs have announced they are opening new businesses. Doug Samsen will host a grand opening of his Samsen Furniture Outlet the day after Christmas and Jennifer Roberts has launched a photography and design services company..

Samsen’s new store is located in Perrysburg across from Levis Commons. It will offer close-outs, discontinued styles, fabrics and overstocked merchandise. The store will also carry the clearance and scratch and dent furniture from Samsen’s flagship store located on Rt. 51 in Genoa and Fine Designs located in Sylvania.

Doug Samsen is a second-generation owner of the Genoa store opened by his father Bob Samsen in 1954. He said the 6,600 square-foot store will offer warehouse and factory close-outs of brands found at the Genoa store such as Flexsteel, Ashley and Thomasville as well as Craftmaster and Best Chair.

 
Oregon - Plans for concession stand, restrooms go forward

Oregon Council, by a vote of 6-1, approved a contract last Monday with the Buehrer Group Architecture & Engineering, Inc., for the design of a new concession stand and restroom facility to serve the recreation department’s new South Recreation Complex.

Councilman Sandy Bihn was opposed.

Last month, council was considering an $11,280 contract with Buehrer for the three-phased project.

Mike Seferian, who was mayor-elect at the time, was opposed, saying the city would be wasting money on a project that may not occur since there are no sanitary sewers at the site, just off Starr Extension. The matter was referred to a Dec. 7 recreation committee meeting for further discussion.

“Council wanted to get some direction with this proposal,” said Seferian, who has since been sworn in as mayor.

“There’s some discrepancy of where this possibly would go,” he added, due to the lack of sewers.
