Health board meets Tuesday
The Wood County Board of Health will have a special meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Health District Board Room.
Fracking talk Tuesday in BG
A discussion on fracking will take place Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Grounds for Thought in Bowling Green.
Dr. Deb Cowden will discuss the health effects from unconventional shale drilling.
She has been travelling throughout Ohio for over a year to educate audiences about the potential detrimental effects from air and water contamination caused by high-volume, horizontal, hydraulic fracturing (fracking). She will outline the mechanisms that affect human health through the release of toxic chemicals into the air, and the deliberate or accidental spills and possible migration of methane and toxins - including radioactive components - into the atmosphere and surface water and groundwater sources.
The event is open to the public.
One assault Friday in BG
One man was reportedly knocked unconscious during an altercation on North Main Street late Friday.
According to Bowling Green Police, at 11:23 p.m. the man was knocked out after being struck by another man in the 100 block of North Main.
The suspect was described as being a white male wearing an "Affliction" shirt and jeans.
Officers were unable to locate the subject upon arriving on-scene.
