BG moves toward creating a 'town and gown' committee PDF Print E-mail

The Community Improvement Committee of Bowling Green City Council took the initial steps Monday night toward establishing a City-University Relations Committee.
A draft ordinance prepared by Committee Chairperson Daniel Gordon was extensively discussed and changed during an hour-long session. Gordon said the committee would hold another meeting and also share details of the proposal with Bowling Green State University officials.
Committee Member John Zanfardino said the idea is an outgrowth of a trip by about 20 BG officials and residents to Oxford, Ohio, home of a Miami University, in 2013. "After talking to people in Oxford it seems to me this could be a valuable commission," Zanfardino said. The Oxford commission was formed in the late 1980s.
"This has the potential to be helpful," Committee Member Robert McOmber said. "There is no silver bullet out there that will ever solve every issue. It is worth giving it a try."
Gordon said he views the effort as a long-term one aimed at improving town-gown relations.
The draft proposed a 17-member commission, which Mayor Richard Edwards said "seemed a little unwieldy to me."

Prism Propane has partnered with area retail stores to offer electric heaters at-cost for those affected by an ongoing propane crisis.
With several circumstances converging to create a supply shortage in much of the Midwest this winter, Prism asked its more than 13,000 customers to begin conserving and acquire electric heaters as a secondary source. Now, the company has partnered with Menards and The Andersons to offer heaters at a reduced cost.
Menards requested delivery of more than 1,500 heaters from its distribution center to Prism, and The Andersons quickly stepped up with another 200 from its Maumee stores, Prism stated in a news release.
"We want to make sure everyone who needs heat can keep warm, so we opened up sales of these electric heaters to our members as well," said Prism COO George Walton.
'Beat the Heat' cat spaying discount offered PDF Print E-mail

TOLEDO - Warmer weather may still be months away, but Humane Ohio wants pet parents to "Beat the Heat" by spaying their female cats in advance of their heat cycles and preventing unwanted litters from being born this spring. (Animal shelters commonly refer to spring time as "kitten season" because that is when they receive the largest numbers of unwanted litters that are difficult to adopt.)
To help reduce the number of homeless cats born this spring, Humane Ohio is offering a special "Beat the Heat" promotion sponsored by PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare efforts in North America. During the entire month of February, the non-profit organization will spay owned female cats for a special rate of $20.
Spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population. Spaying a female cat by four months before the first heat cycle is actually beneficial, rather than waiting until after one heat cycle has occurred. The procedure is known to improve the health of the pet, including a reduced risk of certain reproductive cancers and infections.
IHOP fraud case extended PDF Print E-mail

TOLEDO - A plea deadline in the federal case of an area businessman who owned seven regional IHOP franchises has been extended.
On Friday, U.S. Judge David Katz granted a motion to extend the deadline from Jan. 31 to Feb. 28 in the case of Tarek "Terry" Elkafrawi, Middleton Township.
The motion, filed by Elkafrawi's attorneys, said that "involvement of defendant's counsel in other matters has precluded proper preparation and analysis to enable the defendant to make an informed determination."
A court document filed last summer previously indicated that Elkafrawi "has not and does not plan to" offer a plea.
