Statewide farm tour promotional material states that the Magyar Garden in East Toledo’s Birmingham neighborhood is over 60-years-old.

Lucas County Administrator and longtime Birmingham resident Peter Ujvagi says the community garden’s roots can be traced back over a century.

The Magyar Garden is once again becoming a popular gathering place for gardening with 37 families putting down plots. Gardeners are arriving from as far away as Genoa and other East Toledo neighborhoods.

Utility shutoffs began this week for more than a dozen Genoa residents who have fallen behind on payments.

“This is never a good time for anybody - the residents, the girls in the billing office, me and the guys who have to go out there and shut utilities off. It’s the toughest part of our jobs,” said Village Administrator Kevin Gladden.

Village council was forewarned at its Monday meeting. Gladden cautioned them they might receive some telephone calls in the aftermath of shutoffs.

From June 10 through September, Wales Road, between Oram and East Broadway roads, will be closed for the Wales Road railroad overpass project.

Closure is due to new pavement tie-ins, where the old Wales Road meets a newly configured Wales Road.

“There were some utility relocations that we’re working on, but the last update I received this morning is that the road will still close on June 10,” Theresa Pollick, Ohio Department of Transportation District 2 public information officer, told The Press on Wednesday.

The Oregon school board, as of Monday, received six resumes for the position of superintendent of the Oregon City Schools district. The deadline to submit an application was Friday, June 7.

Board member Jeff Ziviski said he expects a total of about 12 resumes to be submitted by the deadline.

Parents, teachers and community members received a special gift from the students at Jerusalem Elementary School during the school’s annual Jet Jamboree held on Monday, June 3.

The special day of fun was made even more memorable thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Jerusalem Parents Group (JPG), teachers and the students themselves.
