Industrial start-up, established jewelry store honored

Industrial Developers LTD was officially launched in June 2013, but it already has been recognized by the local community as a business award winner.

“Sarah Raymond, a senior at Northwood High School, is not a leader of tomorrow. She is a leader today at just 18-years-old,” states Anny Toney of Leadership Toledo.

Raymond was chosen the Young Person of the Year at the 21st Annual Prism Awards on March 27 at Sunrise Park and Banquet Center in Millbury. She was joined by First Federal Bank Vice President and Branch Manager David Hymore, the Person of the Year. Both received standing ovations after being introduced to 165 guests at the Prism Award ceremony.

Just last month, Woodmore sixth grader Phoebe Jackson accomplished an impressive feat by winning the Northwest Ohio Championship Spelling Bee.

Jackson won the event, which featured 52 competitors and took place at Owens Community College’s Fine & Performing Arts Center, after two hours of competition by correctly spelling the world “convulsion.”

The runner-up was Oak Harbor resident Katelyn Farmer, who received a spelling bee plaque for her efforts.

Lake Township fire and police department personnel Tuesday showed their support for fire chief Bruce Moritz - nearly filling all the seats in the meeting room of the township trustees and giving the chief a standing ovation after he responded to anonymous criticism of his management of the fire department.

During the trustees’ March 18 meeting, Randy Saint John, of East Freedom Drive, told the trustees eight firefighters conveyed their concerns to him via email. Saint John said he was speaking as a resident and taxpayer worried about his family’s safety. The firefighters, he said, feared repercussions if they took their concerns to command officers.
