Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. is hosting a community open house event this Thursday at Waite High School so residents can learn more about the company's planned Hot Briquetted Iron (HBI) plant to be built in East Toledo.

 Cliff's representatives will be present on September 14 from 6-8 p.m. to share information and answer questions about the project. The open house will be in the high school cafeteria. Guests should arrive at the Career Center entrance (Morrison Drive and Second Street).

        Solomon Lutheran Church in Woodville and St. John Lutheran Church in Stony Ridge will take part in the Reformation 500 Crawl on Saturday, October 21 and Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Pemberville will host Reformation Day on Sunday, October 29.

        The events celebrate 2017 as the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation initiated by Martin Luther in Germany in 1517.

        An open house to discuss plans for renovating the Harris-Elmore Public Library will be held Sept. 12 at 7 p.m.

        Amy Laity, library director, said the library’s board of trustees is considering several options after completing a strategic planning process the past two years.

        The open house will focus on input from the public and a presentation by an architect retained by the board, Laity said.

The Oregon Republican Club held the first-ever Oregon Municipal Judge Candidate Forum Sept. 7 at the Oregon Municipal Complex. 

Club President Diana Skaff and Vice President Lynn Gibbs were pleased with the turnout, which included community members, current court staff, and family and supporters of each of the candidates.

The club’s goal for the event was to help voters get informed and meet the four candidates for Oregon Municipal Judge ahead of the Nov. 7 election.

        The Lucas County Board of Elections certified two of three candidates seeking reelection to the Oregon school board.

        There were no challengers to the three seats currently held by School Board President Carol Ann Molnar, Michael Csehi, and Heather Miller, all of whom are seeking reelection. The Lucas County Board of Elections certified the petitions of Molnar and Csehi by the August deadline. It did not certify Miller’s because she did not follow the requirements and guidelines regarding the petitions, according to LaVera R. Scott, director of the board of elections.
