The condition of the Lake Township Cemetery, including its finances, came up for discussion Tuesday after a resident told township trustees she saw grass left untrimmed around many headstones .

Marge Willman said she was dismayed during a recent visit to the cemetery on Walbridge Road to see some headstones obscured from view by tall grass.

Melanie Bowen, who chairs the board of trustees, said the board hasn’t hired seasonal help for the 40-acre cemetery as an austerity measure.

The medical office staff of Dr. Daniel Cadigan of Catawba Island confirmed Tuesday he is out of the office for six weeks for personal reasons. Cadigan’s deputy coroner, Dr. David Bodie of Port Clinton, is handling coroner’s calls in his absence, the staff member said.

Cadigan, whose private number is not listed in the telephone book, wasn’t available for further comment.

Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) has introduced a bill that tweaks the federal tax code and allows enrolled agents more discretion in using their credentials to distinguish themselves from unlicensed tax preparers.

Portman said he introduced the Enrolled Agents Credential Act to ensure that individuals and businesses are able to identify and have access to trained specialists when filing their federal taxes. He said some state statutes prevent enrolled agents from identifying themselves as credentialed by the treasury department.
