Wintertime can still be a prime time for animal watching in Wood County - including some species one may not normally associate with the area.
Many animals can be seen right in our own backyard in Bowling Green.
Chris Gajewicz, natural resources coordinator for the Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Department, said "at (Wintergarden Woods and St. John's Nature Preserve) you're going to be able to see, the obvious one is deer. But occasionally you'll see a fox. One would be able to see great horned owls" which, he said are active right now, as well as screech owls.

TONTOGANY - Otsego Local Schools are distributing surveys throughout the community to gather input as they prepare for strategic planning.
"We want to involve them in then district and clearly talk about our vision and mission and really invite everyone to participate" about what is working and not working, said Superintendent Adam Koch in a recent interview.
The surveys are being distributed through a variety of means - via Koch's weekly email updates, through the Otsego Knights website and in hard-copy form at each of the district's village halls, as well as local churches, libraries, school offices and post offices.
The surveys come in two types: a parent survey, which consists of more than 50 questions, and a community survey, with more than 20 questions.
"And from the survey data, we're going to then put together a strategic plan and to involve all stakeholders."

Though the holiday season can see an uptick in crime as criminals look to filch some Christmas loot, the passing of the holidays doesn’t necessarily mean that things slow down for area law enforcement.
“It’s true, we do have thefts and the shoplifting, and that picks up during this season,” said Deputy Chief Mike Gilmore of the Perrysburg Township Police Department. “But, in all honesty, it keeps going. So we still have to be diligent on that. It doesn’t stop.”
He noted that programs in place to be more watchful over businesses will still be in effect, though possibly not on the same scale as before the holidays.
“But the everyday crimes that are going on, that’s still going on. And that will continue afterwards.”
“We always have to watch out for drug activity,” he said. “It’s not just in the township, but everywhere. And the people who use the drugs commit the crimes so they can do the drugs. It’s a vicious cycle.”

ROSSFORD - City Council Monday was in a mood to clean up.
The council considered to resolutions to ban clothing collection boxes from the city and to make sure that after snow storms sidewalks are cleared.
Councilman Jerry Staczek has been pushing for months to have the city act against the collection boxes that dot the city. He has complained that the boxes aren't emptied and the clothing spills out. Also, people put other items not intended.
While the boxes owned by Planet Aid seem to be a good-will effort to help people, they are actually scams, Staczek said. Last month he distributed a packet of material based on his own internet research, that documented national problems with the Denmark-based company Tvind.
The clothing collected, he said Monday, is bailed and shipped overseas where it is shredded and used for insulation.
He said there are at least seven boxes located through the city.
