The Wood County Committee on Aging Inc. (WCCOA) put out a public plea Monday urging the public, older adults, and families and friends of older adults to be on the lookout for a scam involving someone using the Wood County Committee on Aging name fraudulently.
WCCOA was informed of the scam by a WCCOA client living outside of Hoytville, in the southwestern corner of the county.
"The client informed us that a woman called him on Saturday, April 12, and began asking him personal questions and then moved towards insurance questions," according to a press release issued by the agency. The woman told the senior citizen she was representing the Wood County Committee on Aging.
"The client did the right thing and refused to answer any more questions and followed up with the Wood County Committee on Aging by calling us," the release said. The woman appeared to be an insurance agent misrepresenting herself.

ROSSFORD — The Wood County prosecutor’s office has ruled that Rossford voters should have the chance to vote on whether the city will remain a part of the Toledo Area Regional Transportation Authority.
The ruling, issued in Feb. 28, but just made public at Monday’s City Council meeting, would place the resolution on whether to withdraw from TARTA on the November ballot.
Last June City Council voted 5-2 to stay in the system, which has been a source of controversy in the city for decades. A group of residents under the banner Citizen’s Choice collected enough signatures to place the referendum to leave TARTA on last November’s ballot, but election officials ruled the paperwork was submitted to late, a decision confirmed by the prosecutor’s office.

Military Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) invites veterans looking for a new career to attend the Veterans Career Assistance Program (VCAP) on April 24.
Veterans interested in attending must preregister by April 21. To register, call career specialist Bob Driftmyer at 419-516-0411.
This career workshop will take place at MVRC's Findlay office, located at 423 Trenton Ave. It will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and lunch will be provided.
The VCAP is an interactive workshop that will improve veterans' job-search skills. MVRC career specialists will lead the workshop and will teach cover letter and resume writing. If veterans have resumes, they should bring them, as they will spend time revising their current resumes or writing new ones.
"By the time they leave, each vet will have a basic, functional resume," says Tim Taylor, director of operations.

Judge to Ohio: Recognize out-of-state gay marriage PDF Print E-mail

CINCINNATI (AP) — A federal judge on Monday ordered Ohio authorities to recognize the marriages of same-sex couples performed in other states, the latest court victory for gay rights supporters.

Judge Timothy Black ruled that refusing to recognize gay marriage is a violation of constitutional rights and "unenforceable in all circumstances."

"The record before this court ... is staggeringly devoid of any legitimate justification for the state's ongoing arbitrary discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation," Black wrote.

The order does not force Ohio to allow gay marriages to be performed in the state.

The state plans to appeal Black's ruling, arguing that Ohio has a sovereign right to ban gay marriage, which voters did overwhelmingly in 2004.

Firearms inside the residence were seized as well.
