ROSSFORD - In a decisive 5-2 vote, City Council decided Monday to remain a member of TARTA.
The vote marked a turnabout for the council where membership in the regional transportation authority has a been a sore topic for over a decade.
Councilmen have long complained about lack of ridership, lack of service and lack of responsiveness to the city's concerns, and along with Perrysburg, Rossford officials asked State Sen. Randy Gardner to push for legislation to allow communities an easier way to exit the system.
The council set up a committee to study the options and consider the alternatives. What they found, said Councilman Mike Scott, who was a member of the committee, was that providing any kind of service to the city's elderly and disabled who most rely on the system would be far more expensive than staying in.
The city residents now pay 2.25 mills to TARTA, Scott estimated that the city would have to raise that to 4 mills to provide its own, inferior service.

Bowling Green State University Trustees Friday afternoon approved a two percent raise and a $50,000 bonus for President Mary Ellen Mazey.
The action came following a brief executive session at the end of the meeting, long after a group of more than 100 faculty members protesting for a contract had left room.
Trustees also approved a new contract with the 20-member International Union of Police Associations. The contract is retroactive to July 1 and runs through June 30, 2015.

Black Student Union members at Bowling Green State University are trying to turn racially cruel remarks into a platform for positive change at the university.
On Thursday evening, members of a fraternity gathered for an organized social at Ziggy Zoomba’s, a bar on East Wooster Street in between campus and the downtown.
“We were having a good time. There were no problems,” said Tiffany Smith, president of the Black Student Union. There were no confrontations between the white and black patrons of the bar, she said. However, when Smith and others returned home and checked their social networking, they saw several racially charged comments posted on Twitter by white BGSU students.

When Dave Brubeck came to Bowling Green in 2005 it wasn't to play the music that made him famous, it was to hear the music that was his passion.
Brubeck, the jazz pianist and composer, died Wednesday just one day shy of his 92nd birthday.
He was best known for leading a jazz quartet whose sophisticated sound defied the norms of the jazz world at the same time it became one of its most popular acts.
Brubeck with his quartet featuring the lyrical yet mordant alto saxophone of Paul Desmond pioneered the college concert. Later his quartet now including master drummer Joe Morello helped pioneer playing in odd time signatures, even scoring a $1 million hit with Desmond's "Take Five." Brubeck's albums found their way into record collections where they were the only jazz.
That was all pretty much in the past when he came to BGSU at the invitation of William Skoog, then choral director.
