About 20 veterans Tuesday attended what was billed as a listening session for U.S. Representative Bob Latta, R- Bowling Green, to hear their concerns about receiving care through the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The congressman told those attending the meeting at American Legion Post 28 in Perrysburg that the House the prior week had passed a bill, the Department of Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act, which will make it easier for the secretary of the department to remove or demote senior employees.

Requests for zoning changes to properties in Lake and Freedom townships are on the agenda of the Wood County Planning Commission meeting scheduled for June 3.

In Lake Township, an application to rezone about 3 acres from an R-2 residential classification to a B-1 neighborhood business classification has been submitted on behalf of the East Suburban Animal Clinic, 5032 Walbridge Rd.

ProMedica Bay Park Hospital said last week it is notifying 594 patients of a breach of protected health information.

The hospital said it discovered on April 2 that between April 1, 2013 and April 1, 2014, an employee accessed the records of patients that the employee was not directly treating without a valid business reason.

The incomplete Washington Street project won’t interfere with plans to bring the Genoa Homecoming back to the local park.

Less than a week and half ago, the section of the main thoroughfare from Fourth to Sixth streets was stripped down to nothing but rocks and chunks of dirt, looking like a big crater in the center of town. By the time fest goers gather Friday, it will be incomplete but passable.

Lt. Commander Vidal Valentin, commanding officer of navy Operational Support Center Toledo, warned local veterans and members of the East Toledo Club to be careful not to “dote” too much on our returning soldiers from Afghanistan for fear of creating another “victim” class.

Valentin made his comments at the 81st annual flag raising and free breakfast provided by the club on Memorial Day to remember the sacrifice of our soldiers. This year’s event was held at the Christ Dunberger Post in Oregon.
