Spending cuts totaling about $192,000 have been approved by the Woodmore school board as it prepares for placing an emergency operating levy on the August ballot.

Superintendent Jane Garling said the cuts will remain in place even if voters don’t approve the ballot issue.

Last week, the board approved not replacing a teacher retiring at the elementary school and eliminating two teaching positions at the school. The elementary guidance counselor position is being reduced from 185 days to 120.

Northern Lakes League commissioner Larry Morrison, spokesperson for the newly formed Northern Buckeye Conference, said a quote in last week’s issue of The Press  stating the NBC had “put a letter out for applicants (for commissioner)” is incorrect.

Morrison added that Suburban Lakes League member Elmwood, which has not been invited to join the NBC, held a meeting to discuss its options. However, he was unaware whether SLL member Gibsonburg, also not invited to join the NBC, was in attendance. The Press regrets the error.

The Woodville Planning Commission is recommending changes to the village zoning ordinance covering the definition of home offices and home-based businesses.

The commission’s recommended definition of a home office is: A secondary use of a residential dwelling for professional office activities. Typically the office use would be ancillary to business activity conducted elsewhere. Residences of accountants, architects, artists, authors, clergy, landscape architects, lawyers, professional engineers, professional land surveyors, real estate agents, teachers or similar professions are examples of such use where the office would not involve use of special equipment or vehicles. A zoning permit is not required for this property use.

Given the opportunity, who wouldn’t appreciate some “spa time” – a pampering shampoo and haircut, a relaxing facial and getting their nails done?

Our four-legged friends can benefit from some pampering too, but getting the family pooch to the groomer can be time-consuming and troublesome, especially for canines that get anxious or sick on car trips.

My Dad started his business, Grosjean Import Service, in 1982, after more than 30 years as a mechanic in automobile dealerships. His career as a mechanic began with Hudson in the 1940s, then Rambler and American Motors, then branched off into VW, BMW, Porsche, and Audi in the 1960s and 1970s. On the walls of his office also hang certificates from GM, Subaru, and the ASE.

Although originally an import repair shop, things changed over time. Dad got involved with Model T Fords, because that’s what he drove as a kid. He bought a couple of restored Model T’s in the early 1990s, and began to drive them for pleasure, in parades, and on weekend trips.
