NORTH BALTIMORE - The village has hired a full-time, interim EMS Chief.
Following a 30-minute executive session on Tuesday, village council approved hiring Eric Larson, current part-time EMS chief, as its interim, full-time chief.
His full-time contract begins May 1 and runs through Dec. 31. He will be paid a $35,000 salary, including benefits.
A total of six candidates applied for the position.

She has 29 years of public service, including the last 7 1/2 years in her capacity with North Baltimore. Prior to her work for the village, she worked for the City of Kenton and as a school teacher.
• approved a $5.25 monthly increase in the minimum sewer payment for utility customers. This increase, effective with the April billing cycle, is being assessed to pay for the second phase of the sewer separation project.

Racially-charged tweets a year ago planted the seeds for an anti-hate initiative that has garnered national attention.
Bowling Green's Not In Our Town held a celebration Tuesday in Olscamp Hall on the Bowling Green State University campus to mark its founding, and to break down a wall of hate made up of pieces of paper containing derogatory names and statements people have encountered.
Arpan Yagnik, a student of Indian descent, said he has been called a "wife beater" because some people believe that all Indian men assault their wives.
Luke Grabski, a transgender student, said hate can also come from within minority groups. His word was "trans-trender," a derogatory term for someone perceived by transgender people as posing as a transgender person.
These and dozens of other slurs were written on paper bricks and pasted on the wall that at the end of the event, participants, who represented the community and the university, ripped down.

GRAND RAPIDS - A local businessman's plan to create additional parking space for his funeral home hit a bump in the road Tuesday.
Brian Habegger, a village resident and owner of Wright-Habegger Funeral Home, requested that two lots near his business be rezoned from residential to commercial.
On Monday, village council unanimously voted down the request for re-zoning for both lots, which are located near the funeral home on Second Street.
Council members did not express specific concerns with Habegger wanting to expand his business, but rather for future use of the commercial property should it be sold.
"I am just concerned about the future and for our future residents," said council member Carolyn Erdody.
Council member Kevin Olman also cited concerns with the process Habegger followed.
Prior to council's vote on the rezoning request, Habegger had torn down the residences on the two lots.
Olman said he would have liked Habegger to go through the re-zoning process first, in addition to other necessary processes, before tearing down the house.

WESTON - Despite surface water surrounding the manure lagoon at the former Manders Dairy Farm on Range Line Road in Liberty Township, there is no eminent danger nor leakage from the lagoon.
Following complaints regarding what was perceived as an overflow or other breach of the pond, Jocelyn Henderson, a resource management specialist with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources' Division of Soil and Water, inspected the facility on Tuesday and found no current problems.
"We have been involved with this site since January," Henderson said by telephone following her inspection.
She indicated there have been weekly visits to inspect the facility, notably following a small overflow from a settling basin next to the barn.
The property is currently owned by Dairy Acquisition 1 LLC, a firm based in Mankato, Minn. The facility was used for some time for dairy heifers but has not been used as a dairy since 2011. The Ohio Department of Agriculture said it is no longer a permitted dairy operation.
