STONY RIDGE - Tiger Ridge Exotics is one of a number of exotic animal facilities being affected by an Ohio law requiring permits to keep the animals.
The portion of the law governing permits went into effect Wednesday.
"I'm determined," said Kenny Hetrick, Stony Ridge, owner and operator of Tiger Ridge, in an interview Thursday. "I don't want them to come and take my animals. They surely can't go to a better place than what I have for them."
The measure, Senate Bill 310, was signed into law in June of 2012, and its contents have been gradually rolled out since then. Among other provisions, it requires that each such animal be microchipped, and a copy of a "plan of action" be submitted to the county sheriff, as well as the local police and fire departments. Further, depending on the number of animals held, a fee must be submitted with the permit application amounting to between $250 and $1,000. Insurance between $250,000 and $1 million must also be carried.

Wood County's first baby of the year was born amidst the swirling snowdrifts and frosty temperatures of the first big snowstorm of the winter.
Both debuted in the wee hours of Thursday, after nearly 12 hours of build-up, but unlike droves of area drivers trying to get to work or appointments, little Avery Pearl Jackson arrived warmly, smoothly and without harm.
Stacy and Bill Jackson of Deshler welcomed their daughter at 4:45 a.m. Jan. 2 at Wood County Hospital. Delivered by Dr. Ian Leggat, Avery weighed in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces.
Stacy says her due date was not until Jan. 7, but her doctor decided to induce her labor.
The couple initially had plans for New Year's Eve that involved going out to dinner with another couple who recently had a baby of their own "but we decided we'd better not." Instead, the mother-to-be opted to rest while she could.

NORTH BALTIMORE - Village council has passed its 2014 budget, again.
Council met for a special meeting on Thursday to approve the 2014 budget, despite having done so in December.
In December, council thought it properly passed the $5. 2 million budget with a 3-2 vote.
However, according to village administrator Kathy Healy, the budget required the majority vote among all council members. When the budget was first passed in December, Jeff Bretz was absent from the meeting, as was Mayor Mike Julien. Council needed, at minimum a 4-2 vote to capture the majority of all council members.
During the first vote in December, Aaron Patterson and Leslee Thompson voted against the budget's passage.
On Thursday, during the special meeting, the budget passed by a 5-0 vote, Healy said.
Aaron Patterson was absent from the meeting and two new council members, Rich Rose and Art Patterson III, casted their votes.

Bowling Green and Wood County welcomed 2014 with a blanket of white causing numerous accidents, though most were minor.
The snowstorm produced an estimated three inches of snow. Complicating matters this morning was blowing and drifting.
Both the Ohio Highway Patrol and the Wood County Sheriff’s office report numerous slide-offs and cars in ditches throughout the county.
Wood County went to a Level 1 snow emergency as of 7:59 a.m. this morning.
A dispatcher at the OHP this morning said she did not have time to elaborate, as she had at least 20 calls to make to arrange for vehicles to be towed out of ditches.
Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn reminds all drivers to “drive for conditions.” He says safe speeds should be maintained and people should be prepared for the snow drifts.
