A cold, wet spring with frequent rainfall is causing an explosion of ticks in Wood County.
Four species in Ohio are medically important because they may carry disease: American dog tick, blacklegged tick (commonly called the deer tick), lone star tick, and brown dog tick. The brown dog tick, though uncommon, is the only tick that can become established indoors in homes with dogs and kennels. All of these ticks are active in Ohio from early spring until late autumn.
Tick diseases can affect both pets and humans. The most common human pathogens transmitted by ticks are Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease. 
Research has shown ticks are most often found in transition areas that have trees and brush adjacent to open grass areas. Ticks need certain environmental conditions to reproduce and survive, and they thrive in locations of high humidity and consistent temperatures.

PEMBERVILLE - It's likely that the Portage River Readers have read enough pages over the last 20 years to stretch the length of the river they're named for.
This year, the book club is marking two decades of broadening its literary and cultural horizons.
"It gets to be a compulsion," said member Lois Wozniak. "You have to be there. It's a big part of your life - to share, to be able to read a book and get stumped on something and to have these folks all read the same books."
Leading the group comes naturally to Mary Kuhlman, who directs the Portage River Readers. A 1951 graduate of Bowling Green State University, she taught for 25 years in Toledo and Eastwood, teaching classes as wide-ranging as algebra, English and even health.
"And I felt like a different person in a math class than I did in an English class," she said.

ROSSFORD - City council had its fill of public works projects - future, impending and in progress - at its Monday meeting.
In a session that lasted until midnight, council heard complaints from residents of Hillside Drive about the havoc visited upon their neighborhood by crews installing new water and sewer lines for the Northwest Water and Sewer District.
They complained of  sprinkler heads being damaged, the road being impassable, diesel spilled, debris everywhere and trash pickup delayed.
Also, once work is finished on the streets, residents are concerned with how the city will repair it.
Resident Don Hamilton said residents do not want the street widened with sidewalks.
They want it to remain 19-feet wide.
Councilman Robert Ruse said the city will work with residents.
Before that's done, Columbia Gas of Ohio will be installing new gas lines on Hillside and throughout the city.

PERRYSBURG - A book of local history due in time for the city's 2016 bicentennial got a boost this week with the announcement of a $10,000 donation to the project.
Way Public Library received the grant from the Daughters of the American Revolution to publish "Perrysburg Village Voices: Hometown Stories of the Past," the compilation of a series of interviews that began in 2002.
The library was supported in its grant application by DAR's Fort Industry Chapter in Toledo. Donations have also been received from the city, as well as local civic groups, said Richard Baranowski, local history librarian at Way, who worked on the project.
Baranowski, a fifth-generation resident, said he didn't start the front porch interview series thinking it would lead to a book, but he now sees it as the perfect way to spread the stories he gathered.
