ROSSFORD - The question about who would be City Council president was answered Monday night, and the process for deciding who will fill a vacant seat was outlined.
Larry Oberdorf rescinded his statement saying he intended to resign as council president made during a contentious council meeting last week.
Mayor Neil MacKinnon announced Oberdorf's intention to stay as council president. That wasn't enough for Councilman Greg Marquette who said he wanted further explanation from Oberdorf about why he said he would resign.
Oberdorf said he was "tied up in the emotions of the state of affairs."
Oberdorf proposed seeking applicants to fill the vacancy created by the death on Thanksgiving of Chuck Duricek, who had just been re-elected to serve a third term.
Newly-elected councilman Dan Wagner, with support from Marquette, had argued the vacancy should be filled by Robert Densic, who came in fifth in a six-candidate race for four seats.

Four groups that work in various ways to promote Bowling Green will use a grant from the Toledo Community Foundation to help determine the feasibility of setting up a one-stop-shop for their services.
The $15,000 grant will be administered by the Downtown BG Foundation and also involve the BG Chamber of Commerce, BG Convention and Visitor's Bureau and BG Community Development Foundation. Downtown BG and the CDF share office space on East Wooster Street, while the chamber is on North Main Street and the CVB on East Court Street.
"This will allow us to do our due diligence on things we're not experts on," Barb Ruland, director of Downtown BG, told chamber trustees Friday morning. "The Community Foundation is looking to us to provide a model for other agencies around the state," she said.
Chamber President Bruce Stevens said "Now it's time for us to roll up our sleeves and go to work."
Ruland learned of the grant possibility early in 2013 and shared the possibility with the other groups. The idea was also promoted in the 2012 visioning program between the city and Bowling Green State University.

BGSU to renovate South Hall PDF Print E-mail

A project to turn South Hall into a new home for media and communications studies at Bowling Green State University got the go-ahead Friday by the university's Board of Trustees.
The plan calls for gutting the building, which was built in 1959, and completely renovating it, said Sheri Stoll, the university's chief financial officer.
The total cost of the project is $24 million with $13 million of that spent on construction.
The programs require a "great deal of equipment" so $5 million of the remaining $11 million is expected to be spent equipping the new facility.
Those will include new studios for the TV station BG24 News and the radio stations WFAL and WBGU-FM. Those facilities are now located in West Hall.
Work has already started abating any potentially hazardous materials in the building. Stoll said that by the middle of January "the interior will pretty much be gone."

WESTON - Being kind can be a positive approach to suppressing bullying. The Otsego Local Schools are continuing to build on their quest to minimize if not eliminate bullying in their community. They are now taking the message out to the four villages within the district.
On Monday Cindy Johnson, a counselor with the elementary school, appeared before the Weston Village Council seeking and receiving their support. Johnson said it was the third of four meetings, having previously received support from both Tontogany and Haskins. Her next visit will be to Grand Rapids.
Johnson noted the district is using the Olweus bullying prevention program through grant money in cooperation with the Wood County Educational Service Center.
