NORTHWOOD - School officials are seeking input from community members for what to do with aging facilities.
The district's combined bond issue and income tax to fund a new school building was defeated in November by two votes.
On election night the combined 0.25-percent earned income tax and a 4.9-mill property tax failed by five votes, 699 against the taxes and 694 in favor.
But the count of provisional ballots changed the total to 702 against and 700 in favor and the recount maintained those totals.
The taxes would have paid for a new 130,000-square-foot school that would have opened in 2016.
District Superintendent Greg Clark is asking community members to attend the board of education meeting Tuesday to discuss options.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. and Clark expects the facilities discussion to start at 7. The meeting will be held in the high school auditorium.

PERRYSBURG - Some city council members say they're on the fence about whether to budget for a school resource officer in 2014.
There was support for the program in October at a meeting of the Service-Safety Committee, but a first reading of the budget during Tuesday's council meeting prompted several others to express their reservations.
An existing officer would be assigned to the high school, and administrators have requested funds for a new officer in the budget to replace the SRO on patrol. The city would be reimbursed by the school district for 69 percent of the $75,617 cost of the officer's salary and benefits, or $52,175, leaving its share for an additional police officer at $23,442.
Police Chief Dan Paez and Superintendent Tom Hosler supported the effort in October, with Paez noting that it wouldn't just be an officer patrolling the schools, but someone there who could build relationships with students and learn about some problems before they escalated.

MILLBURY - Teamwork was once again a topic for the Lake Township Trustees.
At Tuesday's meeting, the trustees agreed to be part of a group looking at grants and other ways to improve Millbury's parks and link with a national bike trail.
Two representatives of Poggemeyer Design Group, Bowling Green, talked to the trustees about joining the village of Millbury in pursuing grants to be part of the North Coast Inland Trail. The trail, according to the ohiobikeways.net website, aspires to connect Indiana to Pennsylvania, requiring roughly a 270-mile west-to-east ribbon of trail through Ohio. A 170-mile portion of the route extends from the Indiana border, just west of the north fork of the Wabash Cannonball Trail, over to Lorain.

BGSU to partner for flight school PDF Print E-mail

A new partnership may be taking off between Bowling Green State University and a private company that would manage the flight school component of the aviation studies program.
The university would continue to handle classroom instruction, but flight lessons would be overseen by North Star Aviation, which operates a similar program with Minnesota State University Mankato.
Bill Davis, board president of the Wood County Regional Airport Authority, explained to Wood County commissioners Tuesday that some details are yet to be arranged, but he sees the partnership as a way for BGSU to reduce program expenses associated with owning and maintaining aircraft.
North Star requested discounted fuel from the airport as part of the deal, which doesn't seem to be an agreeable term.
"It looks like that may be very difficult to do," Davis said, noting that 80 percent of fuel sold at the airport is for flight instruction.
