Throughout the school year, 145 Penta Career School students have been constructing a 2,600-square-foot house as part of their career training.

It will be open to the public Sunday, May 17 from 1 to 4 p.m. Parking will not be available on Hillside Drive. Visitors are asked to park at Eagle Point Elementary School, 203 Eagle Point Rd., where a shuttle bus will run every 15 minutes.

Wildlife area open
Located near Gibsonburg at SR 600 and CR 74, the 360-acre property has been managed as a private hunt club for more than 60-years. A grant from the Clean Ohio Conservation Fund and donations from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Sandusky County Sportsman’s Club have made it possible for the park district to acquire the Ringneck Ridge Hunt Club using no local tax monies.
Police buckling down on motorists who don’t buckle up
During 2007, more than 14,000 people in passenger vehicles died in crashes while unbelted.
About half of these lives could have been saved if they had wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
The Ohio Department of Transportation last week began the process of removing a towering mound of dirt it dumped at the Woodville Road/I-280 Interchange several years ago when preparing for the Veterans Glass City Skyway (VCGS), formerly known as the new I-280 Maumee River crossing.
The agency had planned to remove the mound upon completion of the VCGS, which was dedicated in June, 2007.
