PERRYSBURG - Students and graduates adrift in college loans would get some help under proposals explained at the high school Monday.
Two bills introduced by U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, would expand the information shared with borrowers and allow debt-holders to refinance private student loans, which come with higher interest rates than federal direct loan programs and are more prone to increases.
Brown spoke at Perrysburg High School Monday, where he was joined by a Toledo man who outlined his own confusing experience with student loans and how they continue to affect his family.
Kelly McVicker said he knew little to nothing of the process when he borrowed money to attend Owens Community College, leaving him in the dark about the details of the agreements.

NORTH BALTIMORE - North Baltimore may have chosen a new superintendent of schools.
Ryan Delaney will be recommended at Tuesday's board meeting, which starts at 6 p.m. in the middle school.
He beat out two other finalists in a second round of interviews.
There initially were seven candidates invited in for interviews. The district received 21 applications.
The other two finalists were Ted Haselman of Swanton and Michael Ferguson of Rootstown.
All three were interviewed a second time April 12 before meeting community members during an open forum.
Delaney, currently superintendent at Claymont City Schools in Dennison in Tuscarawas County, will take over for Marlene North, if hired.
North will be retiring as superintendent in June with 31 years in education, 22 in North Baltimore. She served 18 years as the Powell Elementary principal and the last five years as superintendent.

Waiting for walleye PDF Print E-mail

PERRYSBURG - It looks like nothing can keep a walleye fisherman down.
High water. Frigid temperatures. Late-season snow. They've all conspired to deter anglers from braving the Maumee River in hopes of hooking the fish.
It doesn't look like it's worked.
Fishermen could be seen in droves on the river late last week - on Thursday, they were in profusion on the western side of the Perrysburg/Maumee bridge, hip deep in the chilly water or casting their lines from the decks of outboard launches. A good number were also trying their luck east of the bridge at Orleans Park, said to have some of the best walleye fishing on the river.
For Anthony Sims, it wasn't all about the walleye. About to make his first foray of the day into the river Thursday morning, he said he likes "the serenity, the peacefulness, the harmony with the people." That's what brought him down from Ann Arbor to stay with family for the duration of the walleye run.

Bowling Green's Board of Public Utilities spent more than half of its nearly 2.5-hour meeting last week dealing with questions about electric rates and hearing a report on electric projects.
Several citizens asked questions regarding bills and expressed concerns about the Prairie State coal-fired plant in Illinois. One person presented a petition he said was signed by 7,500 Bowling Green State University students asking that the university convert to 100 percent clean energy. There were questions about a canceled coal plant in Meigs County, Ohio.
Late in 2013 the BPU approved a multi-year rate hike plan following a cost of service study. The first increases, averaging five percent for residential customers, were effective in March.
Four officials from American Municipal Power Inc., Columbus, answered questions and also presented a lengthy update on projects that will affect the city and its electric customers. Bowling Green is one 128 communities in seven states that purchase their electricity through AMP.
