The fruits of a partnership between Bowling Green State University and North Star Aviation were on display Thursday in a hangar at the Bowling Green airport.
Three small planes stood at ready, sparkling with new paint jobs outside, and ready for flight with new digital displays inside.
These are half the planes in the program's fleet. The others will also be upgraded, as will the facility. A new complex, scheduled to be completed by fall, will feature a new 3,000-square-foot hangar and an over 3,000-square-foot terminal, including classroom space.
All this, BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey said, is made possible through the collaboration with North Star. The company will collect the special flight instruction fees. North Star will hire the flight instructors while BGSU faculty provide the classroom instruction.

Lake Twp. road fund decimated by winter PDF Print E-mail

MILLBURY - Lake Township is looking to the state to plug a hole in the road department budget that was decimated by this winter's wicked weather.
At Tuesday's meeting, the trustees approved a resolution asking the state to release money from its "rainy day fund" to help repair township infrastructure that "sustained substantial damage" this winter due to extreme weather conditions.
The resolution said the Ohio Budget Stabilization Fund, also known as the rainy-day fund, has a balance of $1.47 billion.
"We're not really asking for a handout. We're just asking for our money back," said Trustee Richard Welling, who wrote the resolution.
The resolution cites the township's Local Government Fund that has been cut by 30 percent. The reduction - which hit local governments all over Ohio - was implemented during the economic downturn a couple years ago.
"This money is Ohio residents' money and it should be returned to local jurisdictions," Welling said.
The resolution will be sent to Gov. John Kasich, and Ohio Sen. Randy Gardner and Rep. Tim Brown, both R-Bowling Green.
Trustee Chairwoman Melanie Bowen praised Welling for coming up with the resolution.
"It doesn't hurt to ask," she said.

A day after a federal judge upheld a ruling removing him from the ballot, Bowling Green's gubernatorial candidate met with a core of hometown supporters.
Speaking to a small group at Stimmel's Market on Thursday, Charlie Earl of rural BG explained the circumstances behind the decision, which first came from an elections official and was subsequently upheld by the secretary of state and a judge in the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Earl, a Libertarian who is a former Republican state representative, immediately appealed the most recent ruling, which is based on several signature-gatherers who did not properly disclose their employers.
Surrounding Earl's ballot status is conflict between the two dominant political parties. Republicans have accused Democrats of supporting Earl because of his potential to draw votes from incumbent Republican Gov. John Kasich, and Democrats have claimed Republicans are behind challenges to Earl's petitions because they fear the same effect.

PERRYSBURG — Emcee Jerry Anderson was quick with the quips, and Poggemeyer Design Group was named Corporate Citizen of the Year at Wednesday’s annual dinner meeting of the Wood County Economic Development Commission.
WCEDC Executive Director Wade Gottschalk said Poggemeyer has done much for local communities and has been an excellent corporate citizen long before it was chosen for the award this year. The company has also greatly expanded its reach, now with offices in 11 states and a western headquarters in Las Vegas.
Founded in 1968 by Lester Poggemeyer in downtown Bowling Green, the company has been a leader in not just designing construction and road projects, but pursuing grants and other funding for such projects. Lester Poggemeyer sold his company to four top employees in 1987 and the company named as its chairman Jack Jones, who accepted the Wood County award Wednesday.
