With a laundry list challenges facing the health center in 2014 following its receipt of a federal grant, the Wood County Board of Health voted to otherwise clear the plate of the center's CEO.
Ben Batey, CEO of the Wood County Community Health and Wellness Center, is also director of nursing for the health district. The health center received a Health Resources and Services Administration grant last month that will award $787,500 next year, $650,000 in 2015 and has the potential to be a permanent source of funding.
But with the award comes some strings. As the health center is expected to increase both its services and client load, additional clinic space is needed, requiring a reorganization within the health district building, and eventually an expansion.
Batey said during the meeting he will meet with representatives of Poggemeyer Design Group on Monday to begin planning the expansion.
With Batey attending to such tasks, the board voted to release him from nursing director duties from Dec. 1 through March 31 and appointed Amy Jones to the interim position. Jones, who has previously served in the position, will earn $64,116.

Marijane Tripp is working hard for her future - and she's not letting her past stand in her way.
Tripp, 26, is now acting as an intern with the Wood County Prosecutor's Office. She had previously served two years in prison following an armed robbery.
"I have learned a lot of lessons since that time," she said during a recent interview. "I have learned a lot about myself, and I'm definitely a stronger person than I was."
Tripp spent a total of two years and three months in custody for her part in a November, 2007, robbery at Huntington Bank in Bowling Green.
Lake burial index to be digitized PDF Print E-mail

MILLBURY - Thousands of Lake Township Cemetery records buried on index cards will begin to be computerized this month.
At last week's meeting, the Lake Township Trustees voted to use its current Uniform Accounting Network software to start modernizing the record-keeping process.
Fiscal officer Vicki Schwamberger and an office worker have researched several software packages, ranging in cost from $1,000 to $11,000. Schwamberger recommended starting with the UAN software, which would be no cost, then possibly upgrading once the records are computerized.
The urgency is due to the impending retirement of Sexton Gary Schulte in March. He has been head of the cemetery for 25 years and has kept the records on index cards and in his head.
"We do need to get this project going," said Trustee Chairwoman Melanie Bowen.
Over the next few weeks, an office worker will enter all of the records into the computer. An Internet connection will also be established at the cemetery to help with future record-keeping.

All library directors in Wood County will be meeting with Ohio Sen. Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green) next Monday. The topic of discussion is expected to be how Ohio's 2014 budget is likely to affect public library funding from the state.
Wood County District Public Library Director Michael Penrod told the library's Board of Trustees about the planned meeting during Tuesday's monthly board meeting.
During his director's report to the board, Penrod also discussed the issue of inappropriate behavior by library visitors and how transgressions are dealt with.
He described an incident that occurred during the last month at the Walbridge Branch Library involving a man in his mid-40s who was directing "inappropriate comments and caresses" toward a minor inside the library. "It happened once, then again, so we reported (the individual) to the police."
The adult has a long string of unrelated offenses on his record, including theft and menacing.
