       The board of trustees of the Harris-Elmore Public Library may decide at its Oct. 9 meeting if it will proceed with plans for renovating the library building.

        A disposal facility in Michigan has been authorized to receive waste from the former Brush Berylium plant site near the Village of Luckey, but a decision on whether the Waste Management Evergreen facility in Northwood will be used for disposing material is pending.

        Residents of Benton Township find some relief in a recent decision by the Ohio Supreme Court regarding a local quarry, but there is still confusion about its impact, says an organizer of a group opposed to dumping at the site.

       Ottawa County Prosecutor James VanEerten said last week his office hadn’t decided whether to refile zoning violation charges against the quarry operated by Rocky Ridge Development.

        The Ottawa County Municipal Court in May agreed to his request to dismiss two zoning violations against Rocky Ridge. VanEerten sought the dismissals while appeals before the Ohio Supreme Court and Sixth District Court of Appeals were pending.

Dr. Justin Chaffin, research scientist for The Ohio State University's Stone Lab and Ohio Sea Grant, along with partners across Ohio and Michigan, has received funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to study what causes Lake Erie algal blooms to become toxic. The study, which will incorporate both computer modeling and hands-on laboratory experiments, is focused on providing more guidance to water utilities on when they should plan to treat drinking water for algal toxins.
