Wood Lane Residential Services Inc. has started planning its fourth annual Feet on the Street 5K Run/2k Walk for July 12.
WLRS is a non-profit agency that has been providing housing and other needed services to individuals with developmental disabilities in Wood County since 1979.
Feet on the Street is the primary source of fundraising for WLRS but is also a way to promote fitness and healthy lifestyles within the community. There were more than 200 participants in last year's Feet on the Street and the agency hopes that registration exceeds that number for this year. This race is open to all those interested in supporting WLRS and those looking to pursue a healthy lifestyle. Last year WLRS rose over $12,000 for the agency with the help of surrounding business and organizations. Numerous sponsors have helped get the ball rolling by already making donations towards this year's event.

Spaces are available for educators, leaders, or conservation clubs who have a sincere interest in taking kids fishing and want to become certified fishing instructors, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife.
A free workshop is scheduled April 9 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wildlife District Two Office, 952 Lima Ave., Findlay.
Passport to Fishing is a one-day instructor training program that qualifies individuals to become Division of Wildlife certified fishing instructors. All participants will need to pass a background check before being certified.
Passport to Fishing was developed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and adopted by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation. Workshops teach volunteers the basics of fishing and how to run a four-station fishing program with a fishing event. These instructors then go back to their communities, with a written curriculum and training aids, to teach youngsters and beginning anglers the basics of fishing.

Bowling Green teachers have a three-year contract due to the increasing health of the district’s budget.
The board of education on Wednesday unanimously approved the deal with the Bowling Green Education Association.
The agreement will run from July 1 to June 30, 2017.
The current one-year contract expires June 30. The deal was reached in one day.
“We’re happy that both sides reached an agreement pretty quick,” said board President Steve Cernkovich.
Superintendent Ann McVey called it “a focused collaborative discussion with the financial well being of the district in mind.”
The 198 teachers will receive a salary boost of 2.25 percent for each of the three years of the contract.
Longevity increases were not part of the deal, according to Treasurer Rhonda Melchi.
