The economy will be a factor in a resolution tentatively scheduled for discussion at the next meeting of the Lake Township trustees as they confront a problem with overgrown yards at abandoned residences.

Melanie Bowen, who chairs the board of trustees, last week said she’s received several calls from residents complaining about properties in need of mowing because the owners have left.

“It seems to be more prevalent this year than in previous years,” she said at the trustees’ last meeting. “It could be the state of the economy. Properties are being abandoned or foreclosed.”

Tim Myers has been fascinated by farm tractors since he was a young boy.

Myers, 38, of Genoa, owns a truck driving business and he also owns a unique piece of farm equipment - a 1916 J.I. Case steam traction engine. Every year, Myers loads up the 15,000-pound engine, also known as a steam thresher, to put on display at the Five Point Steam Threshers Reunion.

This year's 49th annual event, hosted by the Five Point Steam Threshers Club, was held July 19 in Perrysburg Township.

Men claiming to be conducting a property survey for the City of Oregon were able to gain entry to a Holly Drive residence and steal cash from the eldery homeowner, police said.

One man said he needed to look at the homeowners’ back yard while others apparently went into the home while the 83-year-old owner was distracted.

The incident occurred July 8.

According to police, the homeowner was cleaning a lawn mower in his front yard when a large red Ford, possibly an SUV, pulled into his driveway.
