NORTH BALTIMORE  - The village is looking to upgrade its emergency warning system.
At Tuesday's council meeting, Village Administrator Kathy Healy presented a study completed by a firm on the coverage of North Baltimore's tornado sirens.
The study was completed after both residents and council members raised concerns on whether the sirens could be heard around the village, specifically at the Westhaven apartments, where many seniors live.
The village has three tornado sirens. They are located at the fire hall, sewer plant and water plant.
The study presented to council showed three circles signifying the coverage area of the tornado sirens.
"According to this, this is saying 99 percent of the residential area is covered. I don't buy it," said council member Bill Cameron.
Cameron said on an "optimal weather" day, without wind, perhaps the sirens would reach the intended area. But on stormy or windy days, he doubted their reach.
"If we were to be along the outside of the circles, at the edge of these circles... I am guessing, in the middle of the storm, you can't hear this," Cameron said.

St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans racked up a number of citations for revelers in the city Monday – but fewer than in past years.
Bowling Green Police issued 18 alcohol-related citations during the holiday.
It was “a lot slower,” said Maj. Tony Hetrick of the Police Division. “I think the weather had something to do with it, along with the fact that it was the first day back from Spring Break.”
Among the citations issued were four for sales of alcohol to underage persons. Hetrick noted that last week the BGPD conducted their liquor establishment training for businesses. “With that we tell them we’re going to go out with an informant and do compliance checks. Well, not everybody got that message apparently.”
Cited for sales to underage persons were:
• Jeannie Dedman, 36, Bowling Green, at Beckett’s, 146 N. Main St.
• Deena Halleck, 40, Bowling Green, at Motor Runnin’ Drive Thru, 1047 N. Main St.
• Tina King, 54, Wayne, at Mike’s Party Mart, 834 S. Main St.
• Nicole Wandtke, 22, Perrysburg, at Campus Market, 780 S. College.

Lake Twp. heats up over fire chief PDF Print E-mail

MILLBURY - A few Lake Township firefighters are flaming mad over what they say is poor treatment by the new chief.
But the way they voiced those apparent concerns infuriated the Lake Township Trustees.
At Tuesday's meeting, township resident Randy Saint John read an email he said he received from some firefighters who feared retaliation if they approached the trustees.
The email, Saint John said, accused Fire Chief Bruce Moritz, who was hired in August, of yelling at, micro-managing and not respecting them. They also said the trustees should have hired a chief from within the department and that Moritz will leave within two years when he can retire.
Saint John said the firefighters were worried about safety issues in the department and morale.
"You don't have to answer me," Saint John told the trustees. "They just asked me to read this because they are afraid of repercussions."
The trustees fired back, though, saying Saint John reading the email and the firefighters circumventing the chain of command was inappropriate.
"I find it very sad," said Trustee Chairwoman Melanie Bowen.

Eastwood campus proposal protested PDF Print E-mail

PEMBERVILLE - Eastwood Schools administrators are getting a push-back from community members who want to keep the district's elementaries in the villages.
Earlier this year, the district had announced plans to go on the ballot in November to consolidate elementary students in one building on the main campus on Sugar Ridge Road.
That decision was made after a survey of residents showed 51 percent favored the consolidation plan.
That would result in the closing of the Pemberville and Luckey elementaries.
But Jim Opelt, a Pemberville Village councilman, told the crowd of nearly 50 at Monday's school board meeting, that the survey was flawed.
He claimed that many district residents did not get the phone survey, some got called several times, and even some homeowners outside the district were called.
"We've got evidence that a couple people outside the district were called," said Superintendent Brent Welker this morning. "But the survey was better than any other efforts made to gauge how the community stands."
