Representatives of police and fire departments studying the feasibility of a regional emergency dispatch center to service northern Wood County visited Crawford County last week to observe the sheriff’s department dispatching operations.

Lake Township’s dispatching center currently contracts with the Village of Walbridge and City of Rossford to handle their 9-1-1 calls.

Oregon is looking into providing geothermal power to local government, school, business and residential buildings as an alternative source of energy.

“We’re continuing to meet with the Port Authority to explore ways we can help create value for Oregon residents and businesses,” said Administrator Mike Beazley. “We’re looking at the Port Authority’s analysis. It’s especially applicable in those places where they’re not really served by natural gas. We started looking at parts of Oregon, really the northwest portions and some to the south and east that really don’t have natural gas options available. They’re served by propane or heating oil. So we’re looking at alternatives, and maybe even lower energy costs for residents and businesses.”

Only a handful of schools recognize high school equestrian teams as club activities, but the Lake team is making a mark anyways.

It was when aspiring small business owners Rod and Donna McHaffie were seriously praying on opening a religious bookstore in Genoa this past summer that a symbolic miracle occurred.

It was in the guise of another Genoa businessman opening up his heart.

A portion of the prison sentence of a Toledo man for his role in the armed robbery and beating of an elderly couple in 2009 has been vacated by the Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals.

The court ruled charges of aggravated burglary and grand theft against Ronald Ruby, Jr. should have been merged during his sentencing hearing in the Sandusky County Court of Common Pleas.
