We all make mistakes.

Rich or poor, famous or not, everyone make mistakes. But there’s one common denominator: we’d all like to be forgiven.

Ohio State University President E. Gordon Gee was fortunate enough to be forgiven for one of his “sins” recently by a very well-respected religious organization: the Sacred Heart Home of the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Oregon will see its budget revenue drop by $2 million in the next couple of years as a result of the continuing economic recession and cuts in the state budget. But not to worry. Through attrition, the city is confident it will keep expenses in check.

“We have a good cooperative relationship with our employees,” said City Administrator Mike Beazley. “We have to find ways to make sure we deliver excellent services with a smaller government.

Three people will be vying for two seats on the Oregon Board of Education on November 8. Unfortunately, Incumbent Board Member Diane Karoly will not be one of them.

The seats of both Karoly and Board President Eric Heintschel, who has decided not to run, are both up for grabs. Karoly had filed her petitions with the Lucas County Board of Elections, but a simple mistake will keep her off of the ballot.

State seeks options for leveraging turnpike

Jerusalem Township officials have dreamed of having their own recreation complex for over a decade, if not longer. Now, they’ll have it.

Tuesday, a private/public partnership broke ground for two baseball diamonds and two soccer fields on a 10-acre property adjacent to Jerusalem Elementary School. Construction is expected to begin immediately and the fields will be available for use next spring.

“We all know this has been a long process trying to get this rolling prior to (trustee) David (Bench) and I,” trustee Ron Sheehan said. “We went through some trials and tribulations to get this where it’s at.”
