A bipartisan group of senators from states in the Great Lakes area is pressing for more action on preventing Asian carp from harming the ecosystem.

In a letter dated Nov. 6 to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the 16 senators asked the corps to quickly follow up on a study that is due to be soon completed with recommendations for addressing problems involving invasive species – notably the Asian carp.

The letter is signed by Ohio senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown and senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin from Michigan as well as those from Wisconsin, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Indiana.

Motorists who object to parking tickets issued in the Village of Oak Harbor will soon have a new appeals process.

Oak Harbor’s new parking ticket bureau should be operational in days. Police Chief Steve Weirich said he is only waiting on a printer to return the new tickets. He expects to have the tickets in hand within two weeks and the new program will be under way after their arrival.

Village council created the parking ticket bureau this summer as a direct result of  a dispute that landed the City of Port Clinton in hot water two years ago, Mayor Bill Eberle said.
