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.

University faculty and administration faced off with dueling numbers at Tuesday's Faculty Senate meeting.
Pressed by faculty, Provost Rodney Rogers said Bowling Green State University is currently projecting a $6.9 million shortfall when the next academic year begins July 1.
That's on the upper end of what the administration has been projecting, he said. It comes even after 30 non-tenure track faculty were let go for that academic year.
Those 30 faculty who are losing their jobs taught 2,400 students, said Lawrence Coates, the representative from the Faculty Association. The university and students "will miss them."
Coates said that an Ernst & Young audit of university finances released in fall found that the university had a strong fiscal position in 2013, including a $3.2 million increase in its unrestricted fund balance.

Patrons at BG pizza shop pay it forward PDF Print E-mail

The concept of paying it forward has been around for a while, but lunch patrons at Campus Pollyeyes on Saturday took it to another level.
As a group of armed forces members enjoyed their meal, an anonymous couple wanted to show their appreciation for the soldiers' service. When they tried to pass along money to pay for the meal and were rebuffed - they were told the men couldn't accept the gift - the pair couldn't take no for an answer, said Dean Smith, manager of the restaurant.
"They just came up to the counter and went ahead and paid for it anyway," he said of the couple.
When they went to the register themselves and learned from their server what had happened, the service members picked up the tabs of the other four or five tables in the restaurant "without hesitation."
While the service members' total may have been about $60, Smith estimated they paid at least double that by treating the other customers.
"Everyone else was pretty excited about getting their bill paid for," Smith said. "It was a nice moment."
It was so moving - some customers cried in response to the gesture - so Smith shared the story via the restaurant's Twitter account, @Pollyeyes.

WESTON - From questions about bussing to suggestions for resurrecting after-school programming in the communities, Otsego Local Schools received a lot of feedback Tuesday.
A community forum was held at the Weston Public Library in an effort to build off of a recent survey distributed by the district and craft a strategic plan.
The event was one of four such forums held throughout the district Monday and Tuesday.
"We're not just going to listen and then ignore," said Superintendent Adam Koch, who was joined by elementary principal Betsey Murry and junior high principal Mike Wiley during the meeting.
"We want to be part of one community at Otsego."
While a crowd of 10 showed up to the Weston meeting - events in Haskins and Tontogany on Monday similarly attracted 25 attendees overall - there was not a lack of discussion. Less a formal presentation, the event fostered a conversational dialogue for issues on the minds of the audience.
One of the themes of the night was returning after-school and other programs to the communities that make up the district - something that audience members felt was lacking in the wake of closed community schools and the creation of a centralized campus in Tontogany in recent years.
