There was no reason to save the good news for last Thursday afternoon at Wood Lane because there was only good news.
A five-year compliance review covering hundreds of regulations had turned up no citations.
"Your staff made us welcome, was very open with their responses. With all of the information we looked at, there are no citations. That's very rare and pretty-much unheard of. Congratulations," Beth Chambers, compliance manager with the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, told a large gathering of staff.
Chambers said it was evident to the six-person review team that Wood Lane staff members do what they do every day and don't just gear up for a review. "It is not a short-term thing here." She said the DODD conducts reviews in all 88 counties and sees all types of operations.

Road conditions were improving throughout the county this morning following a winter storm that dumped 5 1/2 inches of blowing and drifting snow on the area over the weekend. MORE PHOTOS
"They're a lot better now that the wind has died down," said Gary Britten, superintendent of the Wood County Highway Garage, of the roadways. "They're pretty much all opened up and widened out where they need to be. But they are all very slippery. We're salting the country roads again this morning and" the conditions should improve with sun and a lack of wind.
He said that many of the township and side roads throughout the county are slippery as well "but they're all passable as long as everybody takes their time."
Bowling Green officials said streets were in decent shape this morning after a weekend of constant work by the public works crew.
Assistant Municipal Administrator Lori Tretter said police issued 46 tickets and tows, plus 29 citations for vehicles that remained on designated snow streets after 2 p.m. Saturday. The city instituted a snow emergency at noon Saturday, which orders vehicle owners to remove their vehicles from snow streets.

Perrysburg Township discussion on intersections comes to a crossroads PDF Print E-mail

LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township trustees heard an update Wednesday on two intersections as township and city officials continue discussing options to improve safety.
Trustee Gary Britten shared details from a meeting earlier in the week, the second multi-agency session to weigh changes to Scheider Road at Ohio 199 and the intersection of Roachton and Hull Prairie roads.
The latest session involved the city and township as well as school representatives and Ohio Department of Transportation officials. Britten said the results of a traffic study of Roachton and Hull Prairie, funded by the city, the township and the Wood County Engineer's Office for $5,700, showed no cause to install a four-way stop or traffic signal there. Britten said there is simply not enough traffic on Hull Prairie to suggest a change at that intersection, which has experienced increased traffic crashes, some of them fatal.
"The only thing that it does show that would be warranted in the near future would be a roundabout," he said.
