Wood County Hospital has petitioned to have its 37.2717-acre property at 950 W. Wooster St. rezoned from S-3, planned institutional, to I-1, institutional.
The petition comes before the Bowling Green Planning Commission Jan. 8, which will likely follow its long-standing policy of setting the issue for a public hearing at the following month's meeting, which would be Feb. 5.
The property stretches from Wooster Street to Conneaut Avenue. Parcels are owned by a combination of Wood County Hospital Inc. and Wood County Hospital Association.
On the petition, Vice President of Support Services William R. Kidd indicated the reason for the request was "quicker plan review process to allow hospital to implement changes to benefit community."
Zoning classifications with the "S" designation require the property owner to present a detailed site plan to show proposed changes.
The changes must meet city specifications before going before the commission. The commission almost always holds an optional hearing before passing such requests on to city council.

Only 20, Anthony De La Torre has already performed in many guises.
At 12 he was a child actor, giving voice to a character on "Go, Diego, Go," and appearing in TV commercials.
Later in high school, he had a religious awakening and considered becoming a priest. In the meantime he made Christian rap videos.
He even landed some gigs as a Justin Bieber imitator, appearing at birthday parties for easy-to-fool 5-year-old girls.
To go along with the act he even did a video cover of Bieber's "Boyfriend."
His uncle was impressed enough that he passed his videos along to people he knew in the entertainment business.

Al Smith dealership looks to build new facility PDF Print E-mail

Bowling Green's Planning Commission has scheduled a Jan. 8 public hearing on an annexation petition that would allow a long-time Bowling Green auto dealership to building a new facility.
David A. Knauss, on behalf of several family members, has petitioned the city to annex 2.409 acres at 17103 N. Dixie Hwy.
The property is at the northwest corner of Newton Road and North Main Street, immediately north of the BG welcome sign.
Documents filed with the BG Planning Commission indicate that Al Smith Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram plans to purchase the parcel after annexation for a new dealership.
The firm has been located about a mile south in the 900 block of North Main Street since the mid 1960s.
The land is zoned A-1, agricultural in Plain Township. The city's Master Plan shows the property as B-2, general commercial, which the commission can recommend when it forwards a recommendation on interim zoning to BG City Council for final action. The Wood County Commissioners earlier approved the annexation and sent the petition to the city.
The commission's meeting is scheduled at 6 p.m. because the normal first Wednesday meeting day coincides with the New Year's holiday. The city's Zoning Board of Appeals meeting remains scheduled for 7 p.m. on Jan. 8, its normal second Wednesday date and time.

PERRYSBURG - There's no room for the amateurs at the next Winterfest.
The event's organizers have learned that Perrysburg's festival will host the national championship event of the National Ice Carvers Association, so feel free to expect more out of the ice carvings to be featured there in February.
The yearly event centered around filling the downtown area with ice carvings and their artists will be a little different in 2014. Usually, the field is split between amateurs and NICA professionals. This year, however, the pros are expected to make up the full show.
"They are the best of the best. They will only be here because they scored enough (at other events) through the year," said Rick Thielen, executive director of Downtown Perrysburg Inc., which organizes Winterfest.
