Joan Gordon demanded perfection from herself, and encouraged the same in others.
The Bowling Green civic leader was known for her keen eye for detail, sharp pencil for corrections, and her trademark brown bangs and bun. When she died on Monday, Gordon left her mark on many institutions in the city, and many people who she served with on volunteer boards.
“I honestly can’t think of anyone who has contributed more to Bowling Green over the last 35 years,” said Bill Culbertson, who served as president of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce in 1994 when Gordon was its executive director. “Bowling Green has lost a treasure.”

Rossford to stick by TARTA PDF Print E-mail

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.

Attorney William Stephenson made it clear to U.S. Rep  Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) Thursday the group of conservatives and libertarians in his office were "his constituents," not a Democrat or liberal among them.
Latta made it clear that "in this office," his field office on North Main Street in Bowling Green, partisan and ideological labels don't matter.
The issue that dominated the talks, the National Security Agency's monitoring of telecommunications, has brought together usual ideological foes.
Stephenson asked Latta to join senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, both staunch conservatives and Ron Wyden, a liberal Democrat, in calling for congressional investigations into the NSA and "the police state apparatus in this country."

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.
