The German-American Festival (GAF), the Toledo area’s oldest, largest and greatest ethnic festival, returns to its familiar Oregon grounds Aug. 28 through 30.

As always, authentic German food, beverages and entertainment will be in full abundance, including continuous live music at three stages from local Germanic and ethnic bands, an old world-style Bier & Wein Garten, the Import Haus featuring steins, linens and other gift items, new amusement rides and the fest’s signature 56’ by 40’ wooden dance floor in the main Fest Zelt tent – a 100’ by 265’ clear span without poles.

According to Timothy Pecsenye, festival chair, this year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever.

The operator of a 7-Eleven store in Walbridge is enlisting the help of residents and local elected officials to reverse a decision by the corporation’s management to end the sale of gasoline at the store after the Labor Day holiday.

Gail Adler, the franchisee for the store at 200 N. Main Street, and her son-in-law, Mike Doyle, have started a petition drive to gather signatures to “save the pumps” at the store, hoping the petitions will give them some leverage in an appeal to management.

“I’m willing to travel to Illinois (7-Eleven division headquarters) to pitch our case,” Doyle said.

In a letter to the Wood County commissioners, Adler and Doyle say monthly gas sales at the store are usually around 40,000 gallons.

The museum, located at 411 N. Main St. in Gibsonburg, has an amazing array of military items on display from the Civil War, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War and the current war in Iraq.

“The organization (North Coast Veterans Memorial and Museum Society) has been in existence since 1999, and the museum used the cell block in the bottom floor of the old county jail,” Cooper said. “When they built a new jail, they left one cell block as it was and they allowed us to use that for about a year.
