The Eastwood school board last week took the final step to place a bond issue on the November ballot to fund the construction of an elementary school on the main campus.

If passed, the bond would generate up to $11 million for an 80,000-square-foot building to house students in kindergarten through the fifth grades now attending Pemberville and Luckey schools.

Oregon City Council at a meeting on July 28 approved the withdrawal of a request for a Special Use permit for a dog kennel at 466 Georgetown Dr.

The property is zoned R-2 Medium Density Residential District.

George Pope applied for the Special Use permit to have six dogs in his home.

Cooler temperatures helped make the trek through the Farmers Market in downtown Oak Harbor a pleasant experience Saturday.

A light stream of customers checked out everything from the vegetable and baked good booths to quilts and bees wax products under clear, blue skies and 75-degree temps. Young families toured the tents, piling their purchases into the open pockets of their children’s strollers.

The Eastwood Theater has been many things during its 90 years-plus on East Broadway.

That includes 60-years plus providing movie entertainment to the community, which is more than any other theater in East Toledo. After it closed as a family friendly movie theater, it ran adult movies until 1985, and from 1993-2004 was used by South Toledo-based Cornerstone Church for services.

Dave Brunkhorst was a fresh-faced engineering department intern in the early days of the opening of the Ottawa County Highway Garage along Ohio 163 between Oak Harbor and Port Clinton.

Since then nearly half a century has passed. Brunkhorst worked for the county then broke out on his own to create an engineering consultant business in the 1980s. Years later, he sold the business and returned to public service when elected Ottawa County engineer in 2004.
