Seventy-one percent of the East Toledo electorate voted for Mayor D. Michael Collins when he defeated incumbent Michael Bell last November.
Mayor Collins says that helped get him elected, and promises “the ’05 is going to regain the respect that it has lost.” To East Toledo residents, “the ‘05” is a commonly used term for their community’s zip code, 43605.
“Thank you for your confidence in me and that confidence in me is not going to be misplaced,” Collins told about 50 East Toledo residents Monday night.
A federal Civil Rights Action was filed against Woodmore Local Schools and football coaches Britton Devier and Todd Bringman stemming from an alleged hazing incident in which a player suffered a traumatic brain injury.
The case involves a 16-year-old student represented by the Charles E. Boyk law firm of Toledo and is assigned to Judge Jeffrey J. Helmick in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio Western Division.
Plaintiffs Daniel Sprinski and Amy Sprinski are asking for $75,000 or more in compensatory damages for personal injuries, pain and suffering, disability, medical and hospital expenses, sanctions, exemplary damages, and other damages, along with reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, pre-judgment costs, and other relief the court deems just.
State officials continue to address complaints about the price and supply of propane fuel.
Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office said it is “actively monitoring” complaints about price-gouging and that it plans to work with attorneys general in other states on possible anti-competitive activity related to the sale of propane.
About six percent of the Ohio’s population uses propane to heat homes, according to Census data.
“We want to assure Ohioans that we will carefully monitor reports of potential price gouging or other unfair business practices related to the extreme cold,” DeWine said.
Jerusalem Township Trustee Joe Kiss has, in the last two years, led the effort to raise funds for a new entrance way to the historic Oakwood Cemetery.
It’s expected to be completed by spring.
When Kiss was first elected, he wanted to make improvements to the cemetery, he said.
“It was always one of my plans to try and get a new entrance gate. So just through efforts of my own and some other people throughout the township, we got it to the finishing stages. We got the pillars up and we got some marble coming in. It’s just been a project we’ve been working on and it’s finally coming to fruition,” he said.
