        Officials in Ottawa County are anxiously waiting for word from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on a proposal by Energy Secretary Rick Perry for the commission to address threats to the resiliency of the nation’s electric grid.

        In September, Secretary Perry urged the FERC to adopt rules requiring its markets to develop reforms that would fully price generation resources to maintain the reliability of the grid.

        “A diverse mix of power generation resources, including those with on-site reserves, is essential to the reliable delivery of electricity – particularly in times of supply stress such as recent natural disasters,” he said.

        Eastwood Key Club students noticed the high school halls were lined by accomplishments of the district’s athletes.

        They also noticed there was no recognition of the district’s veterans, so this school service organization decided to change all that. 

        Today, because of the Key Club's efforts, a wall near the entrance of the high school adorns the names of approximately 860 Eastwood alums who served in the armed forces.

Saying they are tired of seeing dogs chained outside, in all kinds of weather, members of the Lucas County Pit Crew are holding a public meeting on Thursday, Dec. 14 from 6:30-8 p.m., at 855 N. McCord Road, in Toledo.

According to Jean Keating, executive director of the Lucas County Pit Crew, those who attend the meeting are invited to help come up with plans that concerned citizens can use to help a dog they see that is tethered for long periods of time.

        A groundbreaking ceremony for a state-licensed medical marijuana cultivation facility is scheduled for Dec. 16 in the Village of Gibsonburg.

        Standard Wellness Co., LLC, is one of the applicants to be awarded a Level 1 license last month for up to 25,000-square feet of growing space from the Ohio Department of Commerce.

        The company plans to construct a facility on 20 acres at Clearview Industrial Park.

        The Wood County Planning Commission has recommended rezoning half of two parcels along Woodville Road to B-2 general commercial and leave the other half R-2 residential.

        The parcels are being used by Jim Mlynek, owner of Woodville Road Nursery, as a transfer station for piles of leaves to be used for compost.

        The parcels in Lake Township have been the subject of discussion during several recent meetings of the township trustees after residents on Bailey Road raised concerns about odors from the site and drainage problems.
