Pink or blue?
None of the three McKenzie sisters could decide, so they ordered one of each.
Now the Weston-based family is seeing double, three times over.
Put another way, Julia and Tim McKenzie have gone from having three grandkids at the start of 2012 to having nine a little over two years later.
It all started with oldest sister Megan Brown, a 1995 Otsego High School graduate, who gave birth to boy-and-girl twins Mason and Molleigh on Jan. 24, 2012.
Middle sister Andrea Gebhart, Otsego class of 1999, became pregnant even before Brown delivered and amazingly, she followed suit, giving birth to boy-girl twins Reid and Reese on Sept. 5, 2012.
When youngest sister Courtney Steiner (Otsego 2001) announced her pregnancy several months ago, there was almost immediate speculation.

Perrysburg hears road complaints PDF Print E-mail

PERRYSBURG - A handful of Fort Meigs Road residents are upset that they weren't notified until recently that 2011 plans to widen the roadway are designed to require some of their property.
The group told city council members Tuesday that it would make more sense to widen the road to the west, which would most affect undeveloped farm land, rather than the east, which would call for property acquisition from as many as 24 homes in the area.
The widening and resurfacing between Five Point and Roachton roads is funded 80 percent by the Ohio Department of Transportation.
Jason McCulloch, a Fort Meigs Road resident who is also an arborist, said the project will devalue homes, affect leech fields, call for removal of trees that serve as windbreaks, and also result in the death of other trees.
McCulloch and other residents suggested a few alternatives with less impact and requested an extension for those options to be considered. They said they knew nothing of the project, which has been in the works since 2011, or the effect it would have on their property until several weeks ago, when they were invited to view a plan that had already been designed.

TONTOGANY - The Otsego School District hopes a new initiative will help ease the anxieties and issues freshmen feel as they transition from junior high into high school.
School board members on Monday heard about the upcoming Knight Link Crew program during their regular meeting. High school teachers Carrie Lockhart and Megan Pierce, as well as Emily Krynock of the Wood County Education Service Center, delivered the presentation.
The trio noted that freshmen coming into the high school from the junior high can feel overwhelmed. The Knight Link Crew program will involve pods of about eight students led by upperclassmen mentors who will be trained with the goal of helping the students become more involved in school and community activities. The program will be mandatory for freshmen.
More than one million students are involved in similar programs nationwide; locally, Anthony Wayne and Rossford are among the school districts with their own Link Crews.
"It'll be a big deal that we have that transition piece," said Kevin O'Shea, principal at the high school.
The number of applications from rising juniors and seniors to be mentors reportedly exceeded expectations.

Lake chief responds to criticism PDF Print E-mail

MILLBURY - Lake Township Fire Chief Bruce Moritz got his chance Tuesday to respond to criticisms leveled against him last month.
"If you can't put your name to it, it's a rumor," Moritz said, addressing an anonymous email read at the March 18 trustees meeting.
The email, reportedly submitted by a group of township firefighters, was read by township resident Randy Saint John at that meeting. Moritz was attending a state firefighters' meeting in Columbus at the time and was unable to be present.
The email accused Moritz of yelling at, micro-managing and being disrespectful to firefighters, among other issues. Saint John had said the firefighters feared retaliation if they went to the township trustees with their concerns.
Tuesday night, Moritz said he was simply "very passionate" during an episode in question involving firefighters. "I was getting my point across to my people."
He noted those statements were meant to stay amongst the firefighters but someone "took it outside the room."
"And then someone else, and I think it's a very loud minority, seems to like to stir the pot in this community. And they came here to put this department down, and put me down."
