Ohio State University Extension Wood County is teaming up with Meijer Stores to offer a series of Dining with Diabetes classes starting next week.  
Dining with Diabetes is a program for people with diabetes and/or their caretakers, or for those who want to learn to eat healthier.  
The free series includes three classes, to be held Jan. 29, Feb. 5 and 12.
Classes will run from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Wood County Extension office at 639 S. Dunbridge Road, Bowling Green.  Participants must attend all three classes.
Class members will receive recipe booklets, information on cooking with low or no sugar, diabetic food preparations, a lecture from a registered dietician, and cooking demonstrations at each session.   
“Never before have we had such a demand for these classes across the state, as Ohio and our country face many challenges with the growing diabetic epidemic,” noted Susan Zies, Wood County Extension Educator for family and consumer sciences.

Father-centered, free, and available to all fathers, the Pathways to Fatherhood program at WSOS Community Action Commission aims to help men develop healthy, lasting relationships with their children and give them the tools to maintain those relationships.
There is no income eligibility for this program and all services are free to all participants residing in Wood, Sandusky, Ottawa and Seneca counties. It is made available through a federal grant to WSOS.
All information fathers share while in the program is confidential, according to George Dupey, the family advocate for the program. "What's said in the room stays in the room."
All fathers, regardless of economic status - custodial and non-custodial fathers, stepfathers, foster fathers, fathers-to-be, father figures, grandparents serving as fathers, disabled fathers and others - can participate. They are encouraged to apply to do so.

Eli McIntosh is enjoying life as a kindergartner at Kenwood Elementary in Bowling Green.
So is Aleks Ostrowski, a member of the kindergarten class at St. Aloysius School.
Like the other children in their classrooms, Aleks and Eli are learning to read simple words, add simple sums and "work and play well with others."
But 6-year-old Eli and Aleks have a special challenge to overcome. Each has a condition called Apraxia of Speech, described by medical professionals as a very challenging and complicated, but little-known, neurological speech disorder.
"The kids know what they want to say, but they can't make the mouth form the words," explained Eli's mom, Beth McIntosh, current president of an organization called Northwest Ohio Apraxia Support.
"I was one of the parents that started the organization two years ago."
