A Bowling Green man is in custody after an hours-long incident on Monday that included the armed robbery of a pharmacy, a high-speed pursuit, and a final apprehension near a rural Pemberville cornfield. SEE MORE PHOTOS
Matthew Stoughton, 26, Bowling Green, remained incarcerated this morning at the Wood County jail on a charge of aggravated robbery - deadly weapon on or about offender. He was being held on no bond in anticipation of a court appearance today.
Police say the incident began when Stoughton entered Jak's Pharmacy, located in the Wood County Hospital Medical Center, around 9:17 a.m. SEE VIDEO
He displayed a handgun and demanded morphine, which he was given. Stoughton was reportedly a patient of the pharmacy and was recognized by employees, who reported the incident.
Police established a perimeter around the hospital, which Stoughton was able to elude.
Bowling Green officers were then sent to Stoughton's address on North Prospect Street, where his Pontiac Grand Prix was located in a alleyway. Officers were not sure if Stoughton was at the address and began surveillance of the site some distance away from the residence while a search warrant was being prepared by the BGPD detective bureau. Stoughton quickly exited his residence, got into his vehicle and fled, leading officers on a pursuit east of the city before Wood County Sheriff's deputies and the Ohio State Highway Patrol joined the pursuit.

Don’t try to defy aging... embrace it instead PDF Print E-mail

PERRYSBURG - Something funny happened when Nancy Orel told a crowd of baby boomers the secrets to aging well.
They laughed.
Though her delivery was often akin to a stand-up comedian more so than a professor of gerontology, Orel blended sharp wit with hard truths that many don't want to hear.
Most people don't accept getting older as a real part of life, deep-down believing they're an exception to one of the few absolute facts of life, Orel explained during a chamber of commerce luncheon June 18.
Engrained in the thoughts of many is "institutionalized ageism," or the idea that growing old is a bad thing, supported by the idea that it's rude to ask a woman her age, Orel said.
Until that changes, "there won't be sufficient services and programs and a sense of feeling comfortable in one's own skin."
But aging, she said, is "better than the alternative" of not living at all later in life.
"We all want to be chronologically gifted," said Orel, associate dean of Bowling Green State University's College of Health and Human Services.

NORTHWOOD - Police have identified the body of a man found Friday at a hotel in the city, but the investigation into the incident continues.
A Northwood Police dispatcher said this morning that the man found in the room was Johnny Ray Willett, 47, with a last known address in Lima.
Willett's body was found Friday in a room in the America's Best Value Inn & Suites, located at 2426 Oregon Road.
A maid at the hotel reportedly entered the room and found Willett's body lying on a bed.
His body was subsequently taken to the Lucas County Coroner's Office. No details as to the cause of death were available this morning; a call placed with the coroner's office was not immediately returned.

A planned Greek housing village is about more than housing. The project that gets underway soon is part of Bowling Green State University's efforts to promote fraternities and sororities on campus.
The demolition of all the Greek housing on campus is scheduled to begin the week of July 9.
Steven Krakoff, vice president of career planning and campus operations, said that it will take awhile to disconnect all the utilities and prepare the buildings to come down, so the actual razing of the structures, some of which date back to the 1940s, won't begin until later in the month.
The plan is to tear down the existing fraternities off East Wooster as well as the sororities off Thurstin Street west of the Student Union.
