The presentation is free and open to the public. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Immigrants from Europe to North America were confronted by a vastly different landscape than they were used to in their homeland. The terrain in North America was widely diverse and could be harsh and unforgiving. English settlers brought with them the practice of using militia, or "trained bands" for the protection of their homes and families. These militia companies were trained in traditional European military tactics, but it was quickly realized that these types of tactics did not work well in the forests and swamps of North America.

There are a few hurdles Ohioans must clear before receiving pothole compensation.
Each year, the Court of Claims of Ohio processes hundreds of claims from Ohioans seeking compensation from the state for damage to their vehicles caused by potholes.
Daniel R. Borchert, interim clerk with the Court of Claims, said there are a few hurdles Ohioans must clear before receiving pothole compensation.
First, drivers must determine if the Ohio Department of Transportation has jurisdiction through its maintenance of the state highway. In some cases, ODOT has contracted with political subdivisions (cities or townships) to maintain interstates within their boundaries, for instance. Those claims should go to that jurisdiction if so.
Next, the driver must prove that ODOT received notice of the existence of a pothole and that ODOT's failure to repair the pothole in a timely fashion led to the vehicle's damage.

To capitalize on the region's strengths in cultivating a high-performing economy, the Regional Growth Partnership, in collaboration with Lucas County, is taking the next step to develop a comprehensive economic development strategy.
As part of this plan, the two entities have issued a request for proposals from economic development and strategic planning firms to assist in the development of a CEDS for the Greater Toledo and Southeast Michigan regions. The region includes Lucas, Wood, Ottawa counties in Ohio and Michigan's Monroe County.
Working in partnership with an array of governmental, business, and economic development partners, the RGP will select and retain a firm for the strategic planning phase of the regional CEDS. This project is being funded, in part, by a planning grant from the EDA. Additional funding partners include the Lucas County, the RGP, the City of Toledo, the Toledo Community Foundation, and the Lucas County Economic Development Corporation.
"This is truly a cooperative economic effort that will maximize our region's many strengths and assets," said Lucas County Commissioner Carol Contrada. "The CEDS will be a strategic public-private partnership-and is about making our region even more competitive in the future."
