Bald eagle owes life to park ranger, twp. trustee
Written by J. Patrick Eaken

Back to the Wild, a non-profit wildlife rehabilitation center, warns on its

pic-eagle2b

website that “sometimes a local animal rescue is a bit dramatic.”

The Castalia-based center’s founder, Mona Rutger, and her husband Bill Rutger, say an animal rescue can be dangerous, too.

“You kind of learn the hard way,” Mona said. “We’ve been injured quite a bit. It’s not the animal’s fault. They are just trying to survive.”

But it’s very possible that the end result can be satisfying, too. Two locally-based impromptu rescuers are hoping just that.

That was the case Tuesday afternoon between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. when Metroparks of the Toledo Area Ranger Richard Kiss and his second cousin, Jerusalem Township trustee Joe Kiss, encountered a sick male bald eagle near Cedar Point Road.

 
Port gets $2 million to clean up industrial park

The Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority received a $2 million grant from the state to clean up the former industrial park at Beazer, also known as the former Toledo Coke site, located at the Port of Toledo.

The Clean Ohio Revitalization Fund (CORF) grant will allow the Port to complete the remaining environmental remediation and demolition activities at the site, just off Front Street.

The Port believes that the site will create several construction jobs and draw hundreds of new manufacturing and seaport jobs when the cleanup is complete.

Possible business markets that might be drawn to the site include agricultural, alternative energy, automotive, plastics, glass, as well as other manufacturers.

Matthew Sapara, the Port’s director of economic development, said there are several companies involved in manufacturing and alternative energy “that are looking for a place to land.”

 
Brown, Filipiak say goodbye to city council

Oregon Mayor Marge Brown and City Administrator Ken Filipiak said goodbye to council at their last council meeting as city officials on Nov. 23.

Brown, who was defeated for a third term by Councilman Mike Seferian on Nov. 3, choked back tears during a brief speech at the end of the meeting.

“Since this is my last council meeting,” said Brown, “I wish to thank the staff for their great support. You guys have always been there for me. Eight years is a long time, but a short time, too. We’ve had a lot of good friendships. I wish you all well.”

Filipiak, who has been with the city for nearly 10 years, resigned after the election to take a job as city manager of Mentor, Ohio.

“This is my last council meeting,” said Filipiak, whose last day was Nov. 25.

He said he expected to provide Seferian and council with a proposed draft budget before he leaves.
