 A state law that amends jurisdictional rights of law enforcement agencies for patrolling highways is set to go in effect next month and that makes Mark Hummer, the police chief in Lake Township, more than a little nervous – and frustrated.

 When the new law becomes effective, it will eliminate provisions in the Ohio Revised Code that prohibit township police officers from making traffic arrests on highways and state roadways that are classified as part of the national highway system – with the exception of interstate highways; they remain out of the jurisdiction of officers in smaller townships.

According to a study by AAA, young people are becoming so dangerously obsessed with social media that lives are being lost.

So, Clay High School junior marketing students Sara Berg and Alyson Naugle are getting the message out that behaviors need to change.

  If the day is fast approaching, the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District is preparing for it.         For years, residents of Oak Harbor have assumed that Davis-Besse could be permanently shutdown.

 Uncertainty over the future of the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Plant and the economic impact from the plant being possibly idled or sold has led the Benton-Carroll-Salem school board to remove a bond issue from the May 2 ballot.

 Board members cited the possible devaluation, noting it would result in an increase in property taxes for homeowners and farmers if the bond issue had passed.

 Residents of Benton Township welcomed Wednesday's court ruling that partially blocks the dumping of spent lime at a local quarry but they don’t see a quick end to the legal dispute.

 Ottawa County Common Pleas Court Judge Bruce Winters has issued a preliminary injunction that prevents Rocky Ridge Development, LLC, from mixing spent lime from the City of Toledo’s water treatment plant with soil and burying it in cells at the quarry where the property is zoned for A-3 agricultural use.

 But he also ruled the quarry operator is in compliance with the township zoning regulations on its property that is zoned for industrial M-3 use.
