Tonight's meeting to hear comments on how to develop the former Ridge Elementary property for a park has been postponed.
"I really want people to be able to come out and tell us what they think, so we will reschedule the meeting later," Dr. Michelle Grigore, director of Parks and Recreation said this morning.
She said a late February date is possible, "if we can get winter to let go of its grip."

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."

The Wood County Engineer has a duty to provide safe, passable county roads for the traveling public. Mailboxes not in compliance with the U.S. Postal regulations are a safety hazard and an obstruction to the safe use of county roads.  Ohio Revised Code §5547.03 provides for the removal of obstructions such as noncompliant mailboxes from the roads within Wood County.
Wood County will repair or replace mailboxes damaged by direct contact with a county vehicle or by a county snow plow, but not snow thrown from a plow, while the vehicle performs county road maintenance or snow removal operations.

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."
