Ottawa County Common Pleas Court Judge Bruce Winters is leading the effort to improve services for men with alcohol and drug addition problems.

A group of community and religious leaders, addiction experts and criminal justice professionals has been meeting to address problems the men face.

Judge Winters said the group hopes to include more social service agencies for support and assistance in launching the program, which will be funded by local churches, civic organizations and community members.

The Village of Oak Harbor is looking for a new administrator and plenty of people want the job.

Mayor Bill Eberle said 70 applications had been received as of the Feb. 28 application deadline for the position recently vacated by Robert Pauley. Pauley, who had held the position since 2009, left unexpectedly in mid- February.

Eberle said he will review resumes to weed out the first wave of candidates.

“A lot of them are health care people looking for work,” he told council during the mayor’s report portion of Monday night’s regular Oak Harbor Village Council meeting.

The Harris Township trustees plan to have sufficient personnel hired by early April to provide 24-hour emergency medical service in the township and Village of Elmore.

Carol Baker, a township trustee, said last week the board of trustees has hired more part-time emergency medical workers to ease the burden on a pool of volunteers whose ranks have been dropping.

Voters in the village and township last November approved a 4.5-mill, 5-year property tax levy to fund additional emergency medical service. Annually, the levy is expected to generate $289,500, according to figures compiled by the Ottawa County auditor’s office.

Nate Purk has a lot of patience.

Otherwise, how would the Oak Harbor High School student stand the repetitive motion of watching his self-built vehicle race along a makeshift track, measure the distance, calculate further distance and repeat again and again in quiet moments between classes and after school.

Purk, a senior heading for the University of Toledo to study biomedical engineering, is part of a 15-person team of nine seniors and six underclassmen readying for the 2014 Science Olympiad March 8 at Case Western University in Lorain.
