BG modifies city income tax practices PDF Print E-mail

Beginning with 2013 tax returns, Bowling Green has modified its practice of mailing tax forms to every taxpayer. Instead, the city has mailed postcards to taxpayers with information about income taxes and is offering a number of options for retrieving tax forms.
Forms are available per the following:
• City website: www.bgohio.org. Form is available under "quick links."
• Income Tax office, 304 North Church Street (basement)
• Via mail, by request.
There are several reasons for the change in practice, according to Income Tax Commissioner Robert Wright. "In previous years," Wright said, "the majority of Bowling Green taxpayers either used the online tax form at our website or a generic tax form created by a tax preparer. This change will save tax dollars and significantly reduce the amount of unused paper."

BGSU set to commercialize art professor's 3D innovations PDF Print E-mail

Bowling Green State University is ready to cash in on a technological breakthrough developed in its School of Art.

Earlier today, the Board of Trustees gave the president’s office the authority to commercialize two patents related to a 3D printer developed by John Balistreri who teaches ceramics at BGSU.

The printer has been in the works since 2009. Its initial uses were to create ceramic pieces, especially intricate abstract constructions by Greg Pugh, then a student who has been hired to work on the project. But Balistreri already saw far wider possible applications for the printer.

Balistreri has been on research leave in Omaha and has continued to work on the printer there. In fall he told the Sentinel-Tribune he was working with researchers at the University of Nebraska to make replacement bone.
Using ash from cow bones, hydroxy apitite, the researchers will construct a material to replace thin bone structures such as those in the skull and face. Researchers envision a material that will take the place of bone and allow new bone to grow into the replacement.

Flight agreement taking off at BGSU PDF Print E-mail

Bowling Green State University trustees agreed to lease its airport facilities to a Minnesota firm that has already started providing flight training to students.

The partnership with North Star Aviation, operating as the Bowling Green Flight Center, took off this semester. The trustees’ action earlier today leases the land the airport sits on to the company.  That will allow the flight center to build a new hangar and classroom space along with providing flight instruction.

University faculty will continue to provide the classroom instruction for students working toward a bachelor’s of science in technology with a concentration in aviation.

“Our faculty will continue to oversee the program,” said David Kielmeyer, university spokesman. “No faculty positions have been eliminated as a result of this.”

The university hopes the new arrangement will give students “a better flight  experience,” said Venu Dasigi, interim dean of the College of Technology, Architecture and Applied Engineering.

High water closed Newton Road Friday between Brim Road and Haskins Road and consequently the BG Community Center is also closed.

The high water is not a problem at the center but the flooded road prevents safe access to the building.

City officials have not said when the center will reopen.
