Treacherous roads continue to be a problem as arctic chill settles in PDF Print E-mail

Inches of blowing and drifting snow, combined with frigid temperatures, proved to be a treacherous combination for Wood County drivers, continuing the county on a Level 2 Snow Emergency this morning.
Multiple traffic accidents have been reported across the county, including one involving a woman in labor who became stuck in a snow drift.
Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn said he did not expect conditions to worsen throughout the day, and indicated that with decreasing wind, there was the hope that the county could be downgraded to a Level 1, or cancel a snow emergency all together.
"They're spotty," said Gray Britten, superintendent of the Wood County Highway Garage this morning of the roadways. "Early this morning, when the night crew was out, the wind was probably blowing so hard, it was basically blowing everything off the roads, but the visibility was lousy. They were having a hard time seeing. Now the wind has backed off a little, but now that means the drifts are wanting to stick to the road."

Ben and Jen Waddington, of Waddington Jewelers, 139 S. Main St., Bowling Green found a creative way to help families in need this past Christmas.
The firm sold 100 pairs of Black Ice Zirconia earrings for $5 each, and are donating the entire amount, not just the proceeds, to the local St Al's food pantry. "My family and I are very grateful to this community, which has allowed us to stay in business over  nine years," he said.  
"This was just a small way for us to be able to help local families during the holiday season. He said he was surprised at how quickly they went through the entire 100 pairs. "Some people bought because they needed an inexpensive gift. Others bought simply because of what we were doing with the $5."

Antiques are not always museum-type pieces and high-ticket items for the wealthy. The mother and son duo of Shelly and Ryan Zavaleta showcase that concept at Mainstreet Antiques. Their downtown storefront features a wide range of items which Shelly describes as "affordable antiques."
She said they always shop with their customers in mind.
"We focus on our clientele. We want to offer things you can afford and use," she said.
They both are always looking for one-of-a-kind type of items for their store. She has a focus on costume jewelry and books; while her son admits to looking for "off beat" items including furniture, decorative art, artifacts and industrial primitives.
A stroll through their store will take you on a journey through various countries, styles and ages. Ryan is a third-generation antique reseller. They shun the "dealer" term.
