Learning to live within its means has been a tough task for the Village of Oak Harbor the past couple of years.

Mike and Sandi Bailey were miffed to see The Press reported their store, Olney Market, was Hot then and gone today in a Nostalgia Highway column written by John Szozda.

The husband and wife team report the market is open and serving customers at Bayshore and Stadium roads for the 58th year. Sandi said the couple hopes to sell before Mike retires in a few years. Meanwhile, the two continue to cut their own meats and make their own hamburger.

Hours are Monday thru Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m.  to 1 p.m. The phone number is 419-698-8195.

Mike’s mother, Hazel and her husband Lester ran the market for many years. Hazel passed away in 2010 at age 88.

Seventy-one percent of the East Toledo electorate voted for Mayor D. Michael Collins when he defeated incumbent Michael Bell last November.
Mayor Collins says that helped get him elected, and promises “the ’05 is going to regain the respect that it has lost.” To East Toledo residents, “the ‘05” is a commonly used term for their community’s zip code, 43605.
“Thank you for your confidence in me and that confidence in me is not going to be misplaced,” Collins told about 50 East Toledo residents Monday night.
