Toledo Zoo is doing its part to make autumn bright with the debut of Luminous Nights.

The fall festival of lights, featuring illuminated hand-crafted Chinese lanterns in the shapes of animals and botanicals, runs from Sept. 29-Oct. 29 on both sides of the number-one zoo in the nation.

Each lantern is hand-crafted by Chinese artisans and is made of a welded metal frame, painstakingly covered with pieces of silky cloth and illuminated with LED lights to create intricate flowers, birds, butterflies and more.

The Luckey Fall Festival will be held Sept. 22-24 at Basic Park, located between Krotzer Avenue (SR 582) and Gilbert Road on Adams Street in the village.

The popular annual festival is synonymous with old-fashioned fall fun. Highlights include craft displays, a flea market and gas engine and tractor displays all three days.

The schedule includes:

Now is a great time to plan a trip to the beach.

Grab your sandals, swimsuits, sunglasses and beach towels. Don’t forget the sunscreen, `cause you’re going to need it.
Logic says it can’t be so. Days are getting shorter, evenings are cooler; football season is upon us. Time to put on sweatshirts.
Yet in North Carolina, the weeks right after Labor Day can be a great time to hit the sand. They’re clones of summer.

“In early September, usually every day is a good beach day,” said Allan Libby, director of tourism development for the town of Surf City on Topsail Island.

“I expect clear skies and mid-80-degree temperatures. Everything’s the same as summer. Same water temperature, same air temperature, but the crowds are gone.”

CVS Pharmacy will acquire six of ProMedica’s outpatient pharmacy locations in Ohio.

CVS Pharmacy will take over operations of ProMedica Pharmacy Counter, located at 3316 Navarre Ave. in Oregon, and will convert it to CVS Pharmacy in early November.

The remaining five Toledo-area outpatient pharmacies acquired by CVS Pharmacy, located in Toledo and Sylvania, will be transferred to nearby CVS Pharmacy stores, beginning in mid-October.

Mercy Health officially broke ground Sept. 7 on a $56.3 million hospital, surgical center and medical building located on the Mercy Health Perrysburg health campus, located on Eckel Junction Road.

Once construction is complete on the 101,000-square foot facility in early 2019, the campus will become a one-stop location for patients in Perrysburg and surrounding communities to access all levels of care from emergency, to surgical, to inpatient services.

“As the care delivery model changes, Mercy Health is committed to leading what healthcare looks like for patients and their families,” said Bob Baxter, interim CEO of Mercy Health – Toledo. “Today, patients are demanding accessible healthcare where they live and work that’s convenient and offers comprehensive healthcare services…delivered in a way that’s efficient, flexible and designed around them.
