WALBRIDGE - There's not enough money this year to pay for mosquito spraying, which can be ineffective, according to the mayor.
At Wednesday's meeting, council was questioned by a resident about why there would not be mosquito spraying control in the village this summer.
"Mosquitoes are getting pretty bad, you know. We can't have mosquito spray?" asked Jan Sawaya, a former councilwoman.
Mayor Ed Kolanko said revenues in the village are down $60,000 to $65,000 annually. He added that nearby Lake Township is not going to spray either.
"The effectiveness ... of the mosquito spray is minimal at most," Kolanko said. "If it doesn't touch the mosquito, it's not going to do any damage."

Former deputy faces new charges PDF Print E-mail

A former Wood County sheriff's deputy is facing three additional felony charges including rape.
The Wood County grand jury handed down a first-degree felony rape charge along with one count of sexual battery and one count of abduction against Dusty G. Garwood, 50, of Bradner.
These new charges are in addition to two counts of gross sexual imposition which was filed by a different grand jury last September.
All five counts involve the same victim.
A separate sexual battery count against Garwood for sexually assaulting the female inmate was dismissed following a court hearing June 23 by Judge Robert Pollex.
Garwood pleaded not guilty in December to the first three counts. All the charges stem from accusations of sexual contact, including intercourse, with the inmate, who was on electronic home monitoring at the time due to an ongoing criminal case.

For the first time in 36 years, Dr. Richard Barker is turning in his scalpel for a book that's not a medical journal.
Barker said he'll still work in the wound care center at Wood County Hospital, but he retired this week from Bowling Green Orthopaedics, the practice he built at home in BG, where there hadn't been one before.

He was arraigned in Perrysburg Municipal Court Thursday afternoon and had bond set at $80,000 with no 10 percent allowed. Whitson is represented by attorney Peter Halleck, according to court staff.
