Third time was not a charm for Elmwood's middle school elementary quiz bowl team.
For the third year in a row, Elmwood took runner-up in the league's quiz bowl tournament held Tuesday.
Eastwood won the tournament, 60-32.
"It made my final year awesome, said David Deniston of the Eastwood team. "It's pretty exciting."
"It's amazing," added teammate Elizabeth Arntson.
Elmwood entered the tournament ranked first of seven teams, and Eastwood ranked second.
Earlier in the season, Elmwood beat Eastwood, 102-74.
But beating them again didn't happen. Eastwood out-scored their opponent each of the three rounds.
"They just came in to play and have fun," said Diane Swartz, in her last year as Eastwood's coach. "These kids get so excited."
Swartz, who has led the team for 10 years, will retire from teaching next year.
Teams faced questions on authors, the solar system, Greek gods, mythology, math and more.
Many times, the math questions stymied both teams.

(Corrected) BG voices transportation plan concerns (3-12-14) PDF Print E-mail

Bowling Green officials Tuesday asked the Wood County Commissioners to remove a portion of the goals from a proposed coordinated transportation plan they are being asked to approve Thursday morning.
A delegation of Mayor Richard Edwards, Municipal Administrator John Fawcett and Grants Administrator Tina Bradley told the commissioners they support the idea of coordinated transportation but are concerned about the cost implications and the potential threat to funding that supports the city's existing public transit operations.
The trio is specifically concerned about a section that calls for completing a Transportation Development Plan for the county.
The 139-page plan is an update of a 2008 plan that is needed to allow groups like the Wood County Committee on Aging and Children's Resource Center to apply for grants to purchase or replace transportation vehicles. The plan needs to be in place with the Ohio Department of Transportation for agencies to file grant applications this month. It has been in development for more than a year.
"When I read parts of this document little bells start going off. I see cost implications," Mayor Richard Edwards said. "We have an efficient operation in Bowling Green, supported by grants and a high demand for the service. County wide I have heard no discussions of the issues, such as at meetings of the mayor's association or TMACOG. There are people around who see the need for the service and we have heard from United Way there is a need.

JERRY CITY - Elmwood Schools continues to move forward with its plans to upgrade technology and add a new band room.
Superintendent Tony Borton told the school board Monday that plans are going forward for three of the four projects he introduced in February.
At that time, he said he'd like the district to construct a new band room, update the infrastructure for technology, improve the energy efficiency of outside lights, and repair parking lots.
Borton is still working on his estimated costs of the projects and has not gone to bid for any of them, but he suspects the district will hold off on repairing the parking lots.
He estimated the addition of a new 4,200-square-foot band room at the end of the north wing will cost $900,000.
Updating the building's core technology capabilities will cost about $400,000.
Changing 120 outdoor light fixtures to LED lights with dimmers and motion sensors would cost about $100,000, but the district would recoup that cost in five to 10 years from the electricity savings.
The estimated cost of repaving and restriping the parking lots is $50,000.
He said work on the band room likely won't start until mid-summer with completion in September.

PERRYSBURG – Over 1,000 items were seized during a multi-agency raid at Glow Industries today.
The business was under investigation regarding alleged trademark counterfeiting on merchandise.
“We believed, and what we confiscated out of there, are so called ‘stash cans,’” said Jill Del Greco, spokesperson for the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. “This is a counterfeiting trademark investigation.”
The cans, which have false bottoms, use trade-marks and images such as those found on familiar products – such as, said Del Greco, cans of Coca-Cola. Glow Industries, she said, “according to what we believe, do not have permission to sell Coca-Cola products.” About 12 different trademarks were involved in a previous investigation, but it was not clear how many were found at the Perrysburg site.
