WALBRIDGE - Council has a new president, but not without a little conflict.
At Wednesday's meeting, both Ken Gilsdorf and Ron Liwo were nominated, with the rest of council splitting two-two on the vote.
Sue Hart-Douglas and Fred Sloyer supported Liwo, and Lauren Laroe and Larry Boday voted for Gilsdorf.
Mayor Ed Kolanko said he tried to get council to settle the issue without a tie-breaking vote from him. Council voted two more times, with the same result.
Kolanko said he then offered to leave the room so council could have a discussion, then re-vote. Or, the mayor said, he could cast the tie-breaker.
Council asked him to vote, Kolanko said, and he decided on Gilsdorf.
"I believe that from looking at the more recent election, Ken Gilsdorf received the majority of the votes," the mayor said. "I tried to put myself in the mind of the voter."

Glenn Haught almost never takes a vacation.
He doesn’t want to.
“I don’t like sitting at home,” Haught said. “I don’t know what I’d do.”
Being the owner of Glenn’s Shoe Repair is a dream Haught didn’t start off with, but he’s sure glad he has it now.
After selling Western attire for several years, Haught took a special interest in boots, and ultimately shoe repair.
“I just like everything I do,” Haught said. “I enjoy taking old shoes and making them look good again.”
Haught has been getting down to the sole of the matter for 38 years in Bowling Green. He’s been at his current location at 117 Clay St. for six years.
For Haught, repairing shoes has a deeper meaning – especially in the hustle and bustle of 2014.

MILLBURY - The Lake School District rebuilt after a tornado flattened the high school, so what's a little flood in the middle school?
Lake administrators handled another disaster last week when a water-fire suppression line broke Tuesday night in the middle school.
Superintendent Jim Witt said water flooded 10 classrooms, damaged ceilings and a little drywall, and soaked floors. Administrators are also closely watching one corner of the gym that got water, to see if the floor buckles.
"It's one of those things," Witt said.
There would have been even more damage if an alarm hadn't been signaled with the Lake Township Fire Department when the water pressure dropped.
The break happened in the middle of a snow storm and record-breaking cold temperatures that closed Lake and other area schools all last week.

Police are investigating a late-night traffic crash that heavily damaged a 114-year-old home in the 800 block of West Wooster Street.
According to Maj. Tony Hetrick of BG Police, at 11:16 p.m. Eleesha Long, 21, Bowling Green, was westbound on West Wooster when she failed to negotiate the turn and drove over the curb and into the corner of the covered front porch of 804 W. Wooster. PHOTO BLOG
The impact caused a portion of the porch’s roof to collapse. Significant damage to wood and brick work was also evident, and deep ruts could be seen in the yard.
