A man was charged with criminal mischief this weekend after he was observed damaging an ice sculpture created for the city's Winterfest.
Bowling Green Police Chief Brad Conner said this morning that just after 11 p.m. on Saturday Chad Clements, 20, with a campus address, was seen kicking an ice sculpture in the 100 block of North Main Street. The sculpture was created for the Melt Shoppe Gastropub, 145 N. Main St.
Conner said part of the sculpture landed in the street, causing a road hazard.
Clements reportedly admitted to kicking the piece.
Conner said the sculpture was located in an area away from most of the other sculptures created for the event.
"We had extra officers out that were contracted with for Winterfest to actually watch the ice sculptures, but this was on the north end of town," and the officers were largely on the south end of Main Street, he said.
 
Green Chair takes center court during BGSU basketball game PDF Print E-mail

A local non-profit organization's life-saving mission will take over the Stroh Center Wednesday at 7 p.m. during the Bowling Green State University's women's basketball game.
Life Connection of Ohio, the organ procurement organization in Maumee, will have volunteers and staff on hand at Wednesday's game to give people an opportunity to register as organ and tissue donors at their informational table on the main concourse. Also making an appearance will be the Green Chair, the star of Life Connection of Ohio's latest awareness campaign. Every day, 18 chairs go empty because the need for organs far outweighs the supply. The tagline of the Green Chair Campaign is "Don't let another chair go empty" because encouraging more people to register as organ donors means there will be fewer empty chairs.
Sitting in the Green Chair at center court during halftime will be the Peterson family - Jean, Dave and Derrik - from Custar. Seventeen-year-old Brook Peterson, Jean and Dave's daughter and Derrik's sister, passed away in 2008 and gave the gift of life through organ donation. Because of Brook's generous gift, three lives were saved - and three chairs continue to be filled. Amazingly, two years after Brook's death, her grandfather received a life-saving kidney transplant, so the Petersons have experienced both sides of donation - giving and receiving.
