Ohio Magazine has gotten the new year off to a good start for two Bowling Green institutions.
In its January Best of Ohio edition, the magazine names the Black Swamp Arts Festival the best arts festival in the state, and Grounds for Thought, the best coffee shop. The honors are determined by a readers poll.
The designation is timely for the downtown shop. It celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2014.
“It was a great and pleasant surprise,” said Kelly Wicks, who operates the shop with his wife, Laura Wicks. He learned of the honor late last year.
He said the shop has already seen an uptick on its website and Twitter account.

N. Baltimore tries to cure EMS billing PDF Print E-mail

NORTH BALTIMORE - A three-year analysis of the village's EMS service has shown the department has been billing patients for less than one-fourth of its runs.
The discovery, shared with council members Thursday night by EMS Chief Eric Larson, could potentially mean thousands of dollars in unbilled revenue for the village.
Larson, who was first appointed as interim EMS chief last summer before being given the official title, has been working to reform the village's EMS billing and staffing structure.
Standing before council on Thursday, Larson said the department didn't bill for 82 percent of its runs in 2010, 88 percent in 2011 and 89 percent in 2012.
"It's something that needs to be addressed and fixed," Larson said.
The lack of billing, Larson said, is largely due to not having insurance information for patients.
However, several council members expressed dismay the department was not more aggressive in following up on obtaining a patient's insurance information in order for the EMS department to be paid for services provided.

Stretching more than 240 miles across the northern portion of the state, the Ohio Turnpike has a lot of neighbors.
Some of those in Wood County aren't happy with the relationship.
When Gary and Lori Franks moved to the Belmont Lake subdivision in Perrysburg Township in 1986, traffic noise in the area was minimal. The interchange between the turnpike and Interstate 75 was nearby, but they liked the wide-open space it provided for their children. The view of the lake in their backyard wasn't too bad, either.
But over the years, truck travel on the turnpike has escalated, and the noise along with it, Franks said. Their wide-open space seems to amplify the problem, and now that the state has announced plans to add lanes to I-75, he's worried the volume will be turned up even further.

PERRYSBURG – The victim of a Wednesday night shooting in the Perrysburg Heights area of Perrysburg Township is expected to recover from his injuries.
The victim, identified as Alec Castillo, 19, was reportedly taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, Toledo, following the incident, which was reported at approximately 8:15 p.m.
Perrysburg Township Deputy Police Chief Mike Gilmore confirmed this morning that, while no one has been arrested for the shooting, two people – identified as Richard Owens Jr., 47, and Damien Owens, 20, both of Perrysburg – had been taken into custody for obstructing official business while the incident was being investigated.
Castillo was reportedly found near Gloria and Broad streets and had been shot two times.
Gilmore also said that two vehicles, neither of which belonged to the victim, were towed as part of the investigation.
The incident is being termed a felonious assault and remains under investigation.
