Three candidates for the mayor’s office in the Village of Walbridge found an issue to disagree on before a debate held Tuesday even began: how the debate was arranged.

Incumbent Dan Wilczynski was at the debate at VFW Post 9963 on Main Street but challengers Stewart Murphy and Ron Liwo didn’t attend, saying they had prior commitments and were not given adequate notice of the event or a chance to discuss how it would be formatted.

Pat Truby loves animals.

Known for helping to take care of stray cats at her Fourth Street home, Truby,70, thought the noise she heard in her garage might be another stray. To her surprise and eventual horror, the noise came from three dogs that have been seen roaming her neighborhood for the last several weeks.

It was Sunday evening after Thanksgiving break in 2009 the Escobar sisters, Abby and Gabby (born just 15 months apart) were at their East Toledo home relaxing before school started again when their mother discovered that an electric blanket had caught fire upstairs in her bedroom.

The flames moved quickly across the carpet and soon their entire home was engulfed in flames. Emotions were running high as they called the fire department. As they watched their house burning, tears flowed knowing that they were losing so much. In the end, no one was hurt or injured, but the Escobars lost everything and did not have insurance to cover the damages.

Negotiations for the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department union have entered the fact-finding stage.

“It (the contract proposal) went to the fact finder last Friday,” said Sheriff Steve Levorchick. “They should come back in 30 days with a ruling. It will either be settled or head to conciliation.”

Last May, veteran police sergeant Michael Powell gave a presentation to Woodmore’s High School students.

This year, Sgt. Powell came back to Woodmore to spread the message of being street smart to seventh grade students. Powell shared the presentation with parents and community members as well.
