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.

Representatives of three environmental groups are asking Gov. Ted Strickland to veto a provision in the state operating budget bill they claim hamstrings the work of the Environmental Review Appeals Commission.

Jack Shaner, Deputy Director of Ohio Environmental Council, Jennifer Miller, Program Coordinator of the Ohio chapter of the Sierra Club, and Amy Gomberg, Program Director of Environment Ohio, say in a letter to the governor the budget amendment was added by the legislature’s conference committee with no opportunity for public review.

The commission hears appeals of decisions made by the director of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency regarding permits, licenses, or variances under the agency’s jurisdiction.
