Squirrel causes power outage
About 3,000 customers of Bowling Green's electric system were without power for more than hour Sunday morning after a squirrel got into the wrong place in the Gypsy Lane Road substation.
The outage was reported at 9:26 a.m. According to Bowling Green Police, a transformer at the substation was charred in the incident, and some nearby residents heard a loud "boom."
Assistant Electric Superintendent John Stewart said this morning there wasn't much left of the squirrel and those remains weren't found until after workers double-checked lines away from the substation for other possible trouble.
At that point the substation was placed into service and the outage ended at approximately 10:30.

WALBRIDGE - Salt was on the mind of village council Wednesday.
Council members voted at their regular meeting to approve a contract with the Ohio Department of Transportation to participate in a cooperative purchasing agreement for rock salt used on roadways.
The matter passed unanimously as an emergency measure - meaning it would go into effect immediately - because the contract needed to be submitted Thursday, said Village Administrator and Police Chief Kenneth Frost.
In other matters, council President Ken Gilsdorf indicated a report he'd received of a gas leak beneath the street across from the Lake Township Fire Department on North Main Street.
"It's been like that for some time," said Frost, noting that Columbia Gas "has been notified on several occasions."
"They don't seem to think it's an issue," he said. "They'll get to it when they get to it."

PEMBERVILLE - There's a fresh young face along historic Front Street in downtown Pemberville.
Catherine "Catie" Agan has opened Starlight Studios, a full service beauty, nail and tanning salon at 208 E. Front St.
The 2013 graduate of Otsego/Penta Career Center focused on cosmetology while in high school. She brings three years experience to her own business and has been very pleased with the initial response.
"It's been really good (for my first week.) It's been a lot better than expected," Agan said.
She says she offers a full line of salon services from hair cuts and styling to facials, tanning, manicures and a wide variety of other nail products and design. She says one of the specialties in the nail salon is "shellac," a gel polish which cures under ultraviolet light.
Agan said the product is a thicker nail polish and is ideal for people who work with their hands, noting, "It minimizes chipping."
Originally from Virginia, she said she moved to the area with her parents when she was in seventh grade. Her grandparents and other family continue to live in the area. She really likes the community and loves the folks in Pemberville.
