Matt and Angie Kutz loved the vicarious adventure offered by "House Hunters International."
But the Perrysburg couple's sense of adventure extends beyond watching the Home and Garden TV show.
Early this year the Kutz family, including sons Nathan, 12, and Jonathan, 10, spent six months in the central African nation, of Rwanda.
Matt Kutz, who teaches athletic training and is coordinator for clinical education at Bowling Green State University, received a Fulbright Fellowship to teach at the Health Institute in the Rwandan capital of Kigali.
Being "adventurous," the couple decided the whole family would accompany him. That necessitated finding living quarters.

Concerns voiced on nuclear waste storage PDF Print E-mail

PERRYSBURG - Wearing buttons, stickers and flashing lights, most speakers at a public meeting Monday about storage of spent nuclear fuel instead focused their criticism on the industry itself.
The meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn at Levis Commons, one of 12 across the country hosted by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, was meant to address the agency's determination that the hazardous remains at nuclear plants should stay there for now.
NRC's assertions that nuclear waste can be safely stored with no imminent environmental risk have been challenged in courts since the 1970s. The most recent update allowed waste to be stored in insulated casks on-site for up to 60 years past the licensed life of a nuclear reactor. That determination, successfully challenged in 2010, resulted in court orders to provide further support in the NRC's environmental analysis.
Millions have been spent researching the potential for a national repository in which waste could be stored in a central underground mine, but those plans have stalled.
The draft generic environmental impact statement under review during the meeting circuit provides for three time frames for storage at reactor sites: 60 years after a reactor's licensed life, by which time the NRC says a national repository should be available; long-term storage of 160 years past the licensed life; as well as an indefinite time frame, "although the NRC considers it highly unlikely."

Two Wood County families who lost their homes in last month’s tornadoes are continuing to pick up the pieces.
Carol Hopple never thought she'd have to say it - she's lost everything.
After the Nov. 17 tornado hit the Jerry City duplex she shared with her sister, husband and niece, Hopple is trying to figure out where to start rebuilding.
She can't start that process at her home. The high-speed winds damaged the Main Street duplex so badly that it's been demolished down to its foundation.
She had no idea an evening of Sunday football would turn into a night she'd never forget.
"Until we lifted our heads off the ground, we didn't know what we were lifting our heads up to," Hopple said. "Everything we have is gone."

Rossford at odds over seat on council PDF Print E-mail

ROSSFORD - The City Council's organizational meeting turned contentious over the issue of who will fill a vacancy caused by the sudden death of a newly re-elected councilman.
Chuck Duricek died Thursday while on a family trip to Chicago.
After his own re-election as council president, Larry Oberdorf recommended that council fill the vacancy by soliciting applications and then interviewing those candidates. This was done to fill the most recent vacancies. The other option was to appoint the next-highest candidate in the six-way race for four seats. That would be Robert Densic.
Oberdorf said there was no precedent for appointing the next-highest vote-getter to a vacancy. The most recent vacancies were filed by the application and review process.
If council does not act within 30 days, it would be up to Mayor Neil MacKinnon to appoint someone to fill the vacancy.
Two councilmen, Greg Marquette and Dan Wagner, one of the candidates who outpolled Densic, spoke in favor of appointing Densic, since he had campaigned for the job.
