When Elmore native Loren Hall posed for a photo atop a locally-made bicycle in 1892, the youngster probably didn’t realize the Elmore Manufacturing Co. would reach a nationwide market with the “Elmore Roadster” that cost about $100.

The potential owner of the closed Brunner Elementary building plans to turn the site into a business hub and rental hall.

Northwood Mayor Mark Stoner, who is completing three terms as mayor, is running for re-election this fall. Stoner, 55, of Ross Street, was appointed to council in 1993, then was re-elected to another term before he ran for mayor.

Northwood Mayor Mark Stoner remains a staunch supporter of his plan to have 24/7 Advanced Life Support (ALS) coverage in the city, despite some misgivings on council at a July 7 meeting.
Stoner, who was not at the meeting, told The Press this week that providing round the clock ALS coverage to residents is a priority that the city will be able to afford.
