No light warranted at Haskins & Wooster PDF Print E-mail

Data from a traffic study conducted in February does not warrant a change of traffic control devices at the intersection of West Wooster Street and Haskins Road.
Data for the update was collected Feb. 13 as a result of citizen requests in 2013. The technical study was completed by DLZ, an architecture, engineering, planning, surveying and construction services firm based in Columbus. The same firm did a study of the Haskins Road area for the city in 2007.
City Engineer Troy Sonner said the scope of the traffic consultant's work was only to evaluate the intersection for a traffic signal or a change to an all-way stop based on current and projected traffic numbers and crash history.
DLZ points out that the Ohio Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices has nine signal warrants, and requires one or more to be met to justify a traffic signal. DLZ determined that four of the nine warrants could be applied to this intersection and were the only ones considered.

Listening to Jeff Bauman on stage at Bowling Green State University, it's easy to imagine he'd talk to strangers.
That's what the 28-year-old was doing 11 months ago, waiting for his girlfriend at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The atmosphere on that bright spring day was festive, and everyone was chatting together.
Except the "weird" tall guy carrying a backpack who Bauman noticed standing next to him. "He was not having fun."
When Bauman turned again, the tall guy was gone, but his backpack was still there. Bauman sensed something was wrong. He turned to a friend to suggest they move.
There was a "flash," he said, "and three pops," and he was on the ground. Around him was total chaos. Then he realized how badly ripped apart his legs were. When he looked down at his legs, "there was nothing there ... I was really messed up." Then he heard the second blast. He didn't think he would make it, and he thought about calling his mother but his phone was gone.

MILLBURY - Three organizations have pledged $300,000 toward the Lake School District's upkeep of the stadium field turf and the all-weather track.
At Wednesday's meeting, Lake Board of Education President Tim Krugh announced a collaboration to plan for the resurfacing of the turf and track.
Donating $100,000 each toward the approximate $400,000 costs are the Lake Athletic Boosters, Lake Athletic Department and Lake Turf and Track Fundraising Committee. The pledges are for $10,000 each, per year over 10 years.
The Lake BOE is also promising $100,000 from the permanent improvement fund, which is funded through a levy.
The collaboration "significantly takes a burden off taxpayers," Krugh said.

In his 13 years as the parish administrator for St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Don Neifer has been able to get a lot of things done with the help of the parish community.
''I have always had a heart for helping other folks; somebody who hasn't had the opportunities I have had,'' Neifer said.
''There is so much need in the community and of course a lot of that would come into the church office,'' he added.
A humble man, Neifer plans to retire on March 30, but that doesn't mean he will be giving up all his volunteer and advocacy work.
He said the decision to retire shocked a lot of people, but it's time to step aside and to be able to say no for a while.
The 1966 Otsego High School graduate plans to continue to work with the church, the American Cancer Society, Bridge Hospice, Coalition of Care for Wood County, and Wood Lane Industries.
