Only a handful of third-graders in Wood County did not pass this year's third-grade reading test.
The Ohio Department of Education released Tuesday the results of the testing of the reading portion of the Ohio Achievement Assessment. Youngsters had two tries this school year to score a 392 on the test.
This is the first year for Ohio's Third Grade Reading Guarantee, which could force students who score below the goal to be kept in third grade another year.
Except for those with special circumstances, students must meet the minimum score on the state reading test to move on to the fourth grade reading.

A woman facing vehicular homicide charges in the death of her two infant twins was found not guilty on all counts by reason of insanity at a hearing Wednesday.
Lori Massingill, 39, Ida, Michigan, appeared in the courtroom of Wood County Judge Alan Mayberry.
Information presented at the hearing painted a picture of a woman suffering from long-term mental illness who behaved in an erratic and confused manner.
Massingill was indicted last year on two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and one count of endangering children stemming from a Nov. 12, 2013, crash.

Perrysburg hikes property tax for police, fire PDF Print E-mail

PERRYSBURG — City Council approved a small property tax increase Tuesday by adjusting its inside millage to generate more money for police and fire pension contributions.
Boosting the combined millage of the two taxes from 1.6 to 1.7 mills will increase property taxes by $3.06 per year for each $100,000 in home valuation.
Law limits inside millage to 10 mills, after which voter approval must be sought for tax levies.
The increase of 0.1 mills will collect an additional $58,125 per year. That millage was reduced in previous years, said Councilman Tom Mackin.
The pension fund is currently in debt to the general fund for $150,000 after a loan last year, necessary because of timing issues when payments were shifted from quarterly to monthly.
