Naming their new pet store, Pet Finatics LLC, didn't come overnight for David Grosjean II and his fiancee, Tracy Kamelesky.
"We were going round and round with names for like two months," Grosjean said. "We were trying to figure out a play on words of some sort, but we didn't want to be too out of the ordinary. This just popped in my head and we discussed it with a few people. We had two pages of names we went through."
Pet Finatics was almost Pets Unlimited, or, better yet, Tank Dogs.
"My friends sometimes call me Tank," Grosjean said, "because I used to do aquarium maintenance."
Make no mistake, this guy was destined to either work in a pet store or own one.
The Oregon school board, disappointed by voters’ rejection of a 5.95-mill emergency levy Aug. 4, has until Aug. 20 to place another levy on the November ballot. But first, they want to analyze last Tuesday’s election results before they make any decisions, according to School Board President Jeff Ziviski.
Northwood City Council will allow Waste Management of Ohio to use Michigan load trucks to haul fly ash down East Broadway for deposit into Waste Management’s Evergreen Recycling and Disposal solid waste landfill.
The permit allows an average of 15 trucks per day, weighing a total of 750 tons, to travel down a half mile segment of East Broadway to Evergreen, located at East Broadway and Wales roads, said Bacon.
The city wants to recoup any costs associated with the wear and tear of that segment of the road, which had just been repaved about four years ago, according to Administrator Pat Bacon.
At age 11, Walbridge resident Craig Burtch was diagnosed with multiple cavernous angiomas, a congenital abnormality that causes brain hemorrhaging due to a lesion in the brain.
"He had his first 'bleed' at 11 and he has had 10 bleeds since, with three brain surgeries," said Burtch's mother, Linda Hamilton. "Some of the bleeds were large enough to require three brain surgeries, and we traveled as far as Gainesville, Fla., and Phoenix for those surgeries."
In 2006, Burtch had two bleeds in the brain stem and had to be put on high doses of steroids to combat the swelling within the brain stem. Doctors now think that the high doses of steroids may be the cause of a bone disease called avascular necrosis, or AVN.
Northwood City Council is expected to vote on whether to cut the salary of the interim zoning inspector at a meeting this month as a result of the poor economy.
Kimberly Grames became the city’s interim zoning inspector after former zoning inspector Heather Sayler accepted a job with the City of Bowling Green last year.
Grames, who was paid an annual salary of $25,000 as Sayler’s assistant, currently makes $43,394 annually, the same salary Sayler made in the zoning inspector position.
The Finance and Economic Development committees weeks ago recommended to council that Grames become the permanent zoning inspector and be paid the same salary as Sayler.
