Drivers on drunk driving list PDF Print E-mail

Sixteen Wood County residents are listed on an enhanced state registry of those with at least five drunk driving convictions.
The Ohio Department of Public Safety (ODPS) launched the listing this week.
The registry, which lists those convicted at least five times of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and meet certain other criteria established by law, was created by automating what have formerly been a paper-driven process.
The registry is available online at https://ext.dps.state.oh.us/omvi/. It may be searched through a variety of criteria, including name, county, and ZIP code.
Several recent media reports had identified gaps in the registry, which was created in 2008. The upgrades reportedly improve the system and the results.
Instead of relying on local court jurisdictions to submit forms to add a habitual offender to the registry, the new system compiles the information automatically from already existing electronic records.
The Associated Press reports that the list now contains more than 5,300 names, where it had included about 400 prior to the updated registry. Previously, courts from only about half of Ohio's counties were included on the list.

Hospital wants property rezoned PDF Print E-mail

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.

Way back when she was a Wood County 4-H member, Janice Frisch decided she wanted most of all to do a quilting project.
She was dismayed to discover 4-H had no such project. Sewing coats, prom dresses and pajamas, yes; food, animals, photography, first aid, furniture-making and a host of other projects, sure; but not quilting.
“So I did a create-your-own project on quilting - twice,” Frisch recalled. A decade and a half later, 4-H now offers a quilting project that anyone can take.
Frisch didn’t know it back then, when she was serving as president of the Bowling Green-Portage based Four Leaf Clover Kids, volunteering as a 4-H Camp counselor and on the Food, Fashion and Family Board, but those early 4-H experiences have formed the cornerstone of her emerging career.

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.
