An improvement project to a stretch of East Broadway in Lake Township is scheduled to begin May 27 and will likely take two or three weeks to complete, according to Dan McLargin, the township road supervisor.

McLargin informed the township board of trustees Tuesday the project is being conducted by Wood County and will include milling about 2 inches of the road before resurfacing.

Oregon will schedule public meetings this summer to gage public input on the functions and location of a senior center.

Council President Dennis Walendzak said the city will schedule public meetings once the city has substantive proposals to discuss. Walendzak spoke in response to a letter submitted by residents who raised concerns about whether city officials were adequately addressing the needs of seniors.

Sam Ellithorpe kept a steady watch on the two-shelf metal cart at the Genoa Future Farmers of America plant auction.

The Genoa High School sophomore was waiting for the auctioneer to swing by the station to sell off the cart. But this wasn’t just any cart. This was his cart. He made it in class for the sale but really didn’t want to give it up.

“His grandpa had his eye on it too. I said, ‘You’re not really going to bid against your grandson are you?’” Sam’s mother Gwen Ellithorpe chuckled. Nope, Sam snatched up the cart for $55.

A civil lawsuit filed by a Lake Township man against the township police chief and Wood County prosecutor has been postponed by court order.

The Wood County Common Pleas Court issued the order May 8 to stop the case so another case involving the man, Dan Prewitt, Pemberville Road, can proceed.

Oregon School Board President P.J. Kapfhammer said he will not support placing an operations levy on the November ballot if the Oregon City Federation of Teachers seek a raise in teacher salaries.

The board is expected to enter negotiations this month to renew the teachers’ three year contract, which expires July 31.

The union, which represents 250 teachers in the district, is going to request a raise, according to Kapfhammer, which he said he will aggressively oppose.
