The death of a former Bowling Green State University teacher and administrator has been determined to be a homicide.
Bowling Green Police Chief Brad Conner said this morning that a report released by the Wood County Coroner’s Office determined that Dawn Glanz, 66, died as a result of a homicide. The cause of death was a “sharp force injury to the scalp.”
The report was released Monday.
Conner said that, as yet, no charges are forthcoming and the matter is still under investigation. 
Glanz, 66, died May 9 at her residence in the 1000 block of Kensington Boulevard. Her death had previously been labeled as suspicious by police.
Lt. Tony Hetrick of the BGPD said this morning that “it’s something that we’ll be working on until we can conclude it. Nothing’s changed on our end.”

Areas through southern Wood County are experiencing flooding, and numerous roads were closed following unseasonably warm weather and significant rainfall this weekend.
“I would like to remind drivers that areas that normally didn’t flood did flood this time, and you have to be extremely cautious when driving across water,” because it is difficult to tell its depth or if any of the road has been washed away, said Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn this morning.
A Sheriff’s Office dispatcher indicated the following roads were closed by the agency:
• Jerry City Road between Potter and Wingston Roads.
• Roundhead Road Between Hammansburg and Dunn Roads.
• Dunn Road west of Roundhead Road.
• Holcomb Road at Ohio 199 and Kaskie Road.
• Grant Road south of Cygnet Road.
• The intersection of U.S.23 and Ohio 105.

Mothers and daughters share a lot during their lives. But one such duo shared something special Friday night: walking across the stage and earning master’s degrees from Bowling Green State University.
Ann Frake, Oakwood, and her daughter, Jacquelyn Frake Davis, accomplished this at commencement this past weekend.
Frake received her online master’s of arts in English, specializing in language arts teaching. Davis received her master’s in educational administration and supervision.
For Frake, it meant doing something she’d initially not really wanted to do: go back to school.
“I had an English degree,” she said. “I’d gotten an English degree about 30 years ago from Northern Illinois University, and didn’t have much interest in going for a master’s then.

Perrysburg credit score bumped up PDF Print E-mail

PERRYSBURG - Don't expect a sudden windfall or a tax reduction, but a bump in the city's credit rating announced last week has officials counting their financial blessings.
Perrysburg's long- and short-term credit ratings, established by Standard & Poor's as AA- in 2008, were boosted to AA+, a two-step increase Administrator Bridgette Kabat called "unbelievable" at last week's city council meeting.
"In 18 years (working) in the public, I have never been in an entity that's experienced a jump like that. It's usually a big struggle to upgrade," she later said in an interview.
The ratings agency's analysis indicates that in the past few years, the city has reduced its debt, built a reserve fund and maintained policies and practices that limit financial risks.
"The stable outlook reflects our view of the city's consistent financial performance and underlying economy benefiting from strong management," Standard & Poor's stated in a summary of the adjustment. 
"That's a real testament to the council and administration we've had in place here for a number of years," Kabat added. "They've held strong convictions on budgeting practices and putting away funds for a reserve fund."
