Changes are coming to Wood Lane operations, but not the dire rumors that have been circulating.
Melanie Stretchbery, superintendent, held a meeting for parents Thursday to update them on the changes coming up.
What is not going to happen, she stated, is the cancellation of transportation or the closing of the school, both rumors she's heard in recent weeks.
There will be no elimination of services, she stated again and again during her 90-minute presentation.
She's been with Wood Lane for 32 years, and there has never been talk of closing the school, and she suspects there never will be.
Wood Lane School provides services for students with special needs from birth through age 22.
What is going to change is how the agency places consumers into a workplace, and the elimination of busing for adults.
But "families have a voice," she assured the group.

Bowling Green Planning Director Heather Sayler was beaming Monday evening as she watched residents make their way around an open house to share the city's work on an update to its future land use plan.
"I'm thrilled," Sayler said. "It has been really exciting to see a diverse crowd, with people of all ages and people I have not seen before."  
Eight stations with concept plans, maps and lists of ideas and data were staffed and explained by an 18-member steering committee and others who have been involved in the project for several months. Attendees were encouraged to ask questions and submit written comments as they visited the stations set up around the interior of the Melt Shoppe on North Main Street.
The future land use section of the city's master plan was last updated in the late 1980s.

Impact of global warming wide-ranging PDF Print E-mail

Global warming isn't just about more violent storms, said climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe at Bowling Green State University Monday night.
It's about violent conflicts caused by a lack of resources and people forced to migrate.
Climate change isn't just about polar bears, she said. It's about her son's future, about his not experiencing the same world she grew up in, and maybe being drafted to fight as global conflict spreads.
"One of the greatest threats to peace today is the issue of climate change," said Hayhoe, who directs the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University.
The military agrees, she noted. One admiral says it posed "an existential threat to civilization as we know it."
Hayhoe, who was recently included on a Time Magazine list of the 100 most influential people in the world, visited Bowling Green to deliver the annual Lamb Peace lecture.
In a systematic presentation, she explained the science behind global warming, noting it is not based solely on recent findings, but rather to papers written in the early 19th century.
"Over 97 percent of the papers ever published agree that humans are the primary cause of climate change," she said, "and over 97 percent of scientists agree humans are the primary cause of climate change."

A new structure to replace the Waterville Bridge will be built parallel to the existing bridge, lessening the impact on drivers crossing the Maumee River.
The Ohio Department of Transportation on Monday selected one of its three alternatives, with the preferred option involving building a new structure next to the existing bridge, which will minimize closure of the bridge to an estimated 30 to 45 days when it is built in 2017.
Constructed in 1904 and rehabilitated in 1948, the Waterville Bridge is one of only four truss bridges in the state and federal highway system in Ohio. It is considered obsolete and fracture critical by ODOT because of insufficient lane widths, a lack of safety redundancies and other problems.
