North American Aerospace Defense Command will conduct exercise flights Thursday as they practice intercept and identification procedures.
The flights are scheduled to take place in northern Ohio in the area between Marion and Toledo from noon to 2 p.m. People in this area may hear and/or see NORAD-controlled fighter jets in close proximity to a military or military contracted aircraft, which will be taking on the role of aircraft of interest.
The flights could be delayed or cancelled due to weather concerns.
In order to test responses, systems and equipment, NORAD continuously conducts exercises with a variety of scenarios, including airspace restriction violations, hijackings and responding to unknown aircraft. All NORAD exercises are carefully planned and closely controlled.

BG business unhappy with wastewater fee increase PDF Print E-mail

A Bowling Green business owner said his firm has essentially stopped doing business with the city's wastewater treatment plant because of a 55-percent rate increase imposed Feb. 1
Tom Kurfis, of CWS Environmental in Bellard Business Park, told BG's Board of Public Utilities Monday the rate increase "impedes my business" by having to increase rates or hauling to another wastewater plant. "We now go to the city of Perrysburg. If you wanted to shut the door to us, why didn't you just say it. This is not practical for us," he said.
Kurfis said the firm moved to BG 12 years ago because of the Ohio EPA office in BG and the city's facilities.
Director of Utilities Brian O'Connell said a 4.2 cent per gallon charge for septage had been in place since 2008 and was upped to 6.5 cents per gallon. "The cost of treatment is about 10 cents per gallon," O'Connell said.
The increase was approved in late 2013 as part of the 2014 utility budget. O'Connell said the new rate was based on a city study that found the average rate at area plants was 6.5 cents per gallon. He said Perrysburg was charging 4.5 cents per gallon.

A late-season storm that dropped snow on the region apparently caused havoc for drivers on county roadways this morning.
A dispatcher with the Bowling Green Post of the Ohio Highway Patrol said that, as of 7:20 a.m., essentially "anything from the Michigan line all the way to (Ohio) 582 is backed up."
The dispatcher was unable to estimate the number of individual incidents they had been notified of this morning.
Major issues appeared to be southbound on the roadway. Four vehicles were in the median at southbound I-75 and U.S. 6, and another incident was reported at Poe Road and I-75.

The Wood County Committee on Aging Inc. (WCCOA) put out a public plea Monday urging the public, older adults, and families and friends of older adults to be on the lookout for a scam involving someone using the Wood County Committee on Aging name fraudulently.
WCCOA was informed of the scam by a WCCOA client living outside of Hoytville, in the southwestern corner of the county.
"The client informed us that a woman called him on Saturday, April 12, and began asking him personal questions and then moved towards insurance questions," according to a press release issued by the agency. The woman told the senior citizen she was representing the Wood County Committee on Aging.
"The client did the right thing and refused to answer any more questions and followed up with the Wood County Committee on Aging by calling us," the release said. The woman appeared to be an insurance agent misrepresenting herself.
