MILLBURY - Thousands of Lake Township Cemetery records buried on index cards will begin to be computerized this month.
At last week's meeting, the Lake Township Trustees voted to use its current Uniform Accounting Network software to start modernizing the record-keeping process.
Fiscal officer Vicki Schwamberger and an office worker have researched several software packages, ranging in cost from $1,000 to $11,000. Schwamberger recommended starting with the UAN software, which would be no cost, then possibly upgrading once the records are computerized.
The urgency is due to the impending retirement of Sexton Gary Schulte in March. He has been head of the cemetery for 25 years and has kept the records on index cards and in his head.
"We do need to get this project going," said Trustee Chairwoman Melanie Bowen.
Over the next few weeks, an office worker will enter all of the records into the computer. An Internet connection will also be established at the cemetery to help with future record-keeping.

All library directors in Wood County will be meeting with Ohio Sen. Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green) next Monday. The topic of discussion is expected to be how Ohio's 2014 budget is likely to affect public library funding from the state.
Wood County District Public Library Director Michael Penrod told the library's Board of Trustees about the planned meeting during Tuesday's monthly board meeting.
During his director's report to the board, Penrod also discussed the issue of inappropriate behavior by library visitors and how transgressions are dealt with.
He described an incident that occurred during the last month at the Walbridge Branch Library involving a man in his mid-40s who was directing "inappropriate comments and caresses" toward a minor inside the library. "It happened once, then again, so we reported (the individual) to the police."
The adult has a long string of unrelated offenses on his record, including theft and menacing.

Marijane Tripp is working hard for her future - and she's not letting her past stand in her way.
Tripp, 26, is now acting as an intern with the Wood County Prosecutor's Office. She had previously served two years in prison following an armed robbery.
"I have learned a lot of lessons since that time," she said during a recent interview. "I have learned a lot about myself, and I'm definitely a stronger person than I was."
Tripp spent a total of two years and three months in custody for her part in a November, 2007, robbery at Huntington Bank in Bowling Green.

The Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT) has a foundation of focusing on things local.
Many of their efforts were highlighted on Wednesday as Rebecca Singer, vice president and director of agricultural programs, led a meeting which was primarily for growers and processors at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation near Haskins.
In addition to the various speakers, those in attendance received a tour of the accompanying Northwest Ohio Cooperative Kitchen (NOCK). The tour included the observation of one of the newest additions, a machine which automatically peels, cores and slices apples. It is located in the room used for blanching and freezing food products.
CIFT staff were working to process and freeze two crates of apples for the Seagate Food Bank which services clients in 18 Northwest Ohio counties including Wood. Because of the volume of apples being processed, some employees were also manually readying the apples to be frozen.
