PERRYSBURG - The teachers union ratified a new contract Thursday night, which may be approved by the school board Monday.
Superintendent Tom Hosler said the deal includes a pay increase, but additional details won't be available until it's approved by both sides.
The roughly 300 employees of the Perrysburg Education Association have been working under an expired contract since August. The Ohio Association of Public School Employees, the union in the district that includes non-teaching staff, recently accepted a new contract with a first-year raise of 1.25 percent and 1 percent in each of the following two years. Pay increases are typically held consistent between the two groups.
Tom Przybylski, president elect of the union, said negotiations were difficult but ultimately worth it.

The Bostdorffs are doing their part to perpetuate the beauty and variety of the poinsettia plant, which over the years has become an iconic symbol and the unofficial plant of Christmas.
On Monday, growers and breeders and other horticulture experts participated in the Ohio State Poinsettia trials held at Bostdorff Greenhouse in Bowling Green. At the trials, 55 different varieties were examined and evaluated.
“We have the largest collection of poinsettias in one greenhouse in the entire United States,” boasts Dick Bostdorff.
The display at the North Dixie Highway business was coordinated by Claudio Pasian, associate professor in the department of horticulture and crop science at Ohio State University.
In the trials the visual impact is obviously important; however, those trained eyes on Monday were looking at many other aspects of the plant such as shape, height, attention required, hardiness, ease of growing and, as Bostdorff notes, how well will it sell.

BRADNER — Luckey Farmers Co-op and Sunrise Cooperative have entered discussions to explore a joint venture in developing a “state-of-the-art grain and agronomy hub” in Wood County. While still in the early stages of planning, it is expected the facility would be located near Bradner at the present site of the Luckey Farmers facility on U.S. 6, one mile west of U.S. 23.

The new facility would be located along the CSX rail lines and thus provide the members of both cooperatives greater marketing ability for their grain.
"We are in the beginning stages of organizing the structure of the LLC and gathering the necessary information required to build a facility of this nature," said Luckey Farmers President and CEO Andy Swerlein. "This venture will expand both cooperatives' presence into Wood County and grow both organizations with the goal of returning equity and value to our member owners."
Swerlein said, "We're always continuing to look for new markets and growth for our members."
He added he expects this to come to fruition and bring added value to both cooperatives as well as their members.
Today, all of Luckey Farmers grain handling facilities are in locations where grain must be trucked to other terminals. The new hub will allow farmers better access to other markets for selling their grain and for receiving better size, scope and product availability for incoming agronomy supplies such as fertilizer.

Celebrating its ninth anniversary, the Arts X is expanding its "Wonderland" of arts activities.
The annual celebration of the arts Friday at Bowling Green State University always finds a new twist to add to its staple offerings of student art sales, exhibits, demonstrations and performances.
This year students will have an especially large canvas to display their work on - the southern wall of the Wolfe Center for the Arts.
Students films and 3-D animations will be projected on the 250 feet expanse of the art center, turning it into the largest screen in Ohio.
And, for the first time, activities will spread to the College of Music. A Holiday Extravaganza concert with a cast of hundreds will be presented at 7 p.m. in Kobacker Hall. ArtsX activities will be 6 to 10 p.m. in the School of Art and the Wolfe Center.
