BG's east side topic of meeting
The Community Improvement Committee of Bowling Green meets Monday at 6 p.m. in the City Administrative Services Building, 304 N. Church St., to discuss unspecified east-side issues.
State of county discussed
A state of the county address will be presented by Wood County Commissioners James Carter, Doris Herringshaw and Joel Kuhlman Tuesday at 8 a.m. in the courthouse atrium.
The annual address provides an opportunity for the public to hear the commissioners' perspectives on the important events that occurred in Wood County during 2012, as well as thoughts for 2013.
The event is sponsored by the Business Council of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce and the Wood County Economic Development Commission. Refreshments will be served at 7:30 a.m.
Extra patrols out this weekend
The Wood County Sheriff's Office will conduct increased patrols over the St. Patrick's Day weekend through Monday.
Deputies will pay particular attention for violations, such as driving under the influence, failure to yield, and speeding, all of which are leading factors in fatal crashes.
The blitz is funded by a grant from the Ohio Traffic Safety Office.
