Water, sewer rates to increase next year
Cities that don’t stay ahead of that end up with catastrophic problems and we don’t want that to be Oregon.
Oregon City Council on Monday voted unanimously to increase the water rates for the water treatment plant and water distribution system, and sewer rates for the wastewater treatment plant and sanitary sewer system. The new rates will be spread out over a three year period, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman. The water rate will increase by 15 percent next year, 10 percent in 2020, and 10 percent in 2021. The sewer rate will increase by 10 percent next year, 5 percent in 2020, and 5 percent in 2021, according to Roman. “At the end of three years – in 2021 – the minimum bill will go up by about $18 per quarter,” he said. “The average is dou-
ble that - $36 per quarter at the end of three years.” Forty percent of residents meet the minimum rate requirement. City Administrator Mike Beazley said at a committee of the whole meeting last

month that there were several reasons why the rates were being hiked, including: •Increased algae and microcystin in the lake; •Increased regulations dealing with corrosion prevention throughout the system; •Increased mandates from the EPA to upgrade the wastewater treatment plant; •Addressing the aging water pipe infrastructure system. “Cities that don’t stay ahead of that end up with catastrophic problems and we don’t want that to be Oregon,” said Beazley.”Most of the water lines will have 80-100 years of life. We have some that are getting that old now. On top of that, a lot of the ductile iron that was produced in the 50s and 60s has a short shelf life. Some of the neighborhoods and parks in the com-
Audit flags overpayments By Larry Limpf News Editor email@example.com A miscalculation by a former Carroll Township fiscal officer of the township’s annual budget resulted in overpayments in 2016 to the fiscal officer, two former trustees and a current trustee, according to a state audit report released last week. The four officials were overpaid a combined $3,571, the report says. Former trustees Rodney Biggert and Kenneth Gyde were each overpaid $913 and James Meek, a current trustee who took office in January 2016, was overpaid $959. Jessica Brough, the former fiscal officer, was overpaid $786. The township and Meek last month agreed to a repayment plan calling for him to pay $100 monthly starting in January 2019 until the amount is fully paid, the report says. State law lists the authorized pay rates for trustees and fiscal officers based on their township’s annual projected budget, which covers total revenues available for spending. “Former fiscal officer Jessica Brough based the township trustees’ compensation for the period of January 1, 2016 through March 2016 on an estimated budget in the $6 million to $10 million range,” the report says. “The calculation of township trustees’ compensation using the $6 million to $10 million range doesn’t appear reasonable given actual 2016 unencumbered balances plus actual receipts…” Moreover, Brough didn’t certify the total amount from all sources available for expenditures with the Ottawa County budget commission as required by state law. When Tina Gyde took office as fiscal officer in April 2016, she filed an amended certificate of estimated resources that put the township’s budget in the $3.5 million to $6 million range. Because Brough authorized the direct deposits that resulted in the overpayments to the trustees, she and her bonding company are liable for $2,785 to the extent not recovered from the three as well as her overpayment.

munity that are served by that ductile iron are having far too many water line breaks. We’re going to have to get our grip on that.” Lowest rates Many communities increase rates every year, said Beazley. “You could argue that it’s a responsible approach. We don’t like to do increases. We’ve gone a good long time without across the board increases in more than 10 years,” he said. “We do have the lowest water and sewer rates combined in the region, perhaps the lowest in Ohio,” he continued. “Even after these rate increases are done, we’ll still have the lowest rates. That doesn’t mean we have the lowest costs for service. Oregon, in some ways, is relatively more expensive to serve. We’re 28 square miles and we have fewer customers per mile of pipe for both water and sewer. It costs us more to serve that population spread over a broad area. But our independent water

We do have the lowest water and sewer rates combined in the region, perhaps the lowest in Ohio.
Two parcels in Lake Township are among those to be auctioned Dec. 5 in a forfeited land sale by the Wood County auditor’s office. The sale will begin at 10 a.m. in the hearing room on the fifth floor of the county office building in Bowling Green. Each property has been forfeited to the state after failing to sell at a sheriff’s sale. “It is my intent to sell all of the available properties so that they can return to productive use on Wood County’s tax rolls,” Matthew Oestreich, auditor, said. In all, 11 parcels and 13 manufactured homes are listed for sale. However, if the delinquent tax charges are paid prior to the sale they will be removed from the list. The Lake Township parcels are located at 29577 E. Broadway St. and on Latcha Road. Other properties are located in Henry Township, North Baltimore, Bradner, Perry Township, Perrysburg Township and Weston. A list of the properties is available online at: www.wood.co.oh.us/auditor/ or can be picked up at the auditor’s office. Registration for the sale will begin at 9 a.m. in the hearing room. Successful bidders will receive an auditor’s deed for each property for the purchase price plus $5.50 deed and transfer fee. There will be no delinquent real estate tax liability for the purchased properties but the sales won’t extinguish any federal tax liens that may have been imposed.
system…provides us with flexibility. All in all, it’s been an excellent value and really managed by our public service team in an excellent way.” High standards Mayor Mike Seferian noted the high standards of its water treatment plant. “We not only have kept up with the latest and greatest processes to produce wa-
ter, we’re ahead of the curve, and we like to stay there. We like to keep all of our infrastructure in good shape. So we will see [rate increases] from time to time. We can produce great water, great product, and get it to the people’s houses in a safe and reasonable manner,” he said. “Our rate payers are fairly fortunate,” said Councilman James Seaman. “Our bills are not that high for water and sewer compared to other communities. In many other communities, their bills are so high, they get billed every month. We bill every quarter because it’s a reasonable amount of money.” Notices of the rate increases will be mailed to customers in the first bill in 2019, said Roman. “We want to give a nice, simple explanation,” he said. The last time water rates went up was in 2006, and in 2009 for sewer rates, according to Roman. The operating expenses of the water treatment plant and wastewater treatment plant have doubled since that time, he said.

Northwood reviewing property maintenance By Kelly J. Kaczala News Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
it, have the Planning Commission look at it. It’s going to take a while for everyone to look at the whole thing.”
Northwood is seeking to establish a property maintenance code to address properties that have been abandoned and neglected. The proposed ordinance has been tabled since September. “We have been looking for ways to address run down residential and commercial properties,” City Administrator Bob Anderson told The Press last week. “We have commercial buildings that have been sitting vacant and neglected for a while. We have residential buildings that have been vacant and neglected, and are becoming nuisances.” Anderson had recommended that the proposed ordinance be tabled after its first reading in September, and asked that it be sent to the Planning Commission for its review and recommendation to city council. The city wants to adopt the Inter- national Property Maintenance Code of 2018, which is over 50 pages long. “This is a huge document,” Mayor Ed Schimmel said at the September 28 meeting. “Other communities that have adopted a maintenance code have taken this template. Some have adopted the whole thing, some have picked and chose what areas they wanted. It covers a lot of stuff. We just want council to look it over, consider
Prior attempts The city has tried to address the problem in the past, with little success, said Anderson. “We have a vacant building code where we charged commercial property owners for having vacant buildings for a certain period of time. We collected a fee for that. The point was to get them to sell the buildings.” Under the vacant property code, the property owner of a vacant commercial property is not charged for the first year that the property is listed with an authorized real estate agent,” said Anderson. “The owner has to fill out a piece of paper saying it’s listed for sale and they’re trying to sell it,” said Anderson. ”After the second year, there is a fee if it isn’t sold. The next year the fee doubles. The purpose of that is to get them to actively sell their buildings. With this code, we have not gone after residential properties.” The proposed property maintenance code covers residential, commercial and industrial properties, he said. “It covers all buildings in Northwood,” he said. The proposed property maintenance code would allow the city to address buildings that are becoming run down – dilapi-
dated buildings with roofing, siding, and windows in poor condition. “The current zoning code doesn’t have enough teeth to address some of these problems. It allows us to do more than just charge fees. If we adopt it, it allows us to go in and clean up the property, or whatever needs to be done to the property. We charge it back to the property owner on their property taxes. We don’t want to end up owning someone’s property,” he said. Trained professionals The city still has to set up qualified professionals to do the repairs, he said. “We have to find people who know what they’re doing. We have to have someone with experience in mechanical, HVAC, and carpentry. So we’re still a ways from doing this. This is on the table, but there’s a lot of questions about its structure and how we would implement it,” he said. “The Planning Commission has not yet addressed it,” he continued. “This is much more complicated than just saying, `OK, here’s the code and you have to follow it.’ If you’re going to have it, you have to have the ability to enforce it. And if you have the ability to enforce it, you need someone who is trained and knows what to look for. And those are questions we have not answered yet. It’s doable. A lot of cities have this. But we want to do this properly and make sure we have a code we can enforce.”
‘Back from the dead’ Cardinal Stritch graduate Mike Jameson, who graduated in the early 1980s and was a star on the basketball team, will be the first to tell you he has ‘returned from the dead.’ The 6-foot-5 Jameson led the Cardinals, then in the Toledo City League, to wins over then state-ranked Libbey and he had offers to play at Owens Community College. He, of course, is also a television and radio producer — owner of Toledo Sports Network and Creative Video Imagery and hosts Great Lakes Golf Today on 106.5 ESPN The Ticket every Saturday morning. At Stritch’s alumni basketball game last year, he nearly “died” on the basketball court — he was the oldest player participating. After he suffered a heart attack, he was revived by EMS personnel using a defibrillator, but it was a scary moment. He now has a pacemaker and has gotten control of his weight and health. At this year's alumni game (above), Stritch athletic personnel brought Jameson out to the court and let him shoot the winning basket — in street clothes, and the woman who saved his life brought him flowers.

Proponents testify on cemetery lot bill By Larry Limpf News Editor email@example.com Proponents of a bill that would amend state law covering how townships can reclaim unused cemetery lots testified last week before the Senate Local Government, Public Safety and Veterans Affairs Committee. Matthew DeTemple, executive director of the Ohio Township Association, told the committee Tuesday House Bill 454 would clarify language in the current law. He said the state’s biennium budget for Fiscal 2016-17 included language that granted townships the right of re-entry for burial lots which had a deed of sale prior to July 24, 1986. It required township trustees to notify the last known lot owner by mail or by advertisement in a newspaper. If the owner doesn’t respond within 90 days, the township can reclaim its interest in the lot. Unfortunately, the language in the budget bill “did not permit the township to repurchase an unused lot from an owner that does respond within 90 days,” DeTemple said, adding the Ohio Revised Code already contained authorizing language permitting a township to buy back unused lots purchased after July 24, 1986. Under HB 454, a township wanting to re-enter a lot sold before that date would be authorized to purchase the lot at 80 percent of the owner’s original purchase price, which mirrors the language in the Revised Code. Also, the bill increases the required

time for townships to reclaim unused lots purchased prior to July 24, 1986 to 180 days from 90 days. It also requires townships to post any notification of re-entry on the township’s website, if there is one, in addition to the mail and newspaper advertisement requirements. The committee also took testimony earlier last month from Rep. Steve Arndt, R – Port Clinton, and Rep. John Patterson, D – Jefferson, co-sponsors of the bill. Patterson said the issue came to his attention after a constituent attempted to buy an unused lot from a cemetery in his district. Although the cemetery could verify the lot was purchased in the early 1900s, no family member could be reached to determine if the lot would ever be used. “In essence, the lot had been vacated,” Patterson said. “While the township would like to sell the unused lot, because it was 6210 to make a reservation.

purchased prior to July 24, 1986, current law prohibits such a sale.” An analysis by the Legislative Service Commission notes that a 2009 opinion by the Ohio Attorney General’s office determined that a township could not reclaim its interest in sold but unused cemetery lots by arguing the burial easement was extinguished by non-use. Whether HB 454 would make it through a court challenge remains to be seen, according to the analysis. “Although the bill provides compensation to a pre-1986 lot owner who responds before the notice period ends, a court may find that applying the law to an owner who responds after the notice period ends constitutes an unlawful taking without compensation,” the analysis says. “This issue exists under current law and is not resolved by the bill. The option the bill provides to an owner to receive 80 percent of the original purchase price may not constitute due or adequate compensation in some cases. “For example, a lot purchased for $100 in 1920 may be worth $1,200 in 2018; $80 is significantly less than today’s fair market value and probably would not be considered due compensation. This is not an issue under continuing law for post-1986 lots because lot owners agree to be subject to the 80 percent term. In other words, the township is utilizing its contractual right to reclaim its interest in the lot and compensate the owner 80 percent of the purchase price as authorized by the statute.”

Last Week's Results Now that the mid-terms are over, do you expect the country to be less divided? 84% No, Congress is split. 16% Yes, each side will have to compromise to get things done.
Create more income instead of getting by with less Cutting back on how much money is spent is a typical strategy for dealing with challenging financial circumstances. Reducing spending to accommodate your current income, is more common than earning more to accommodate your dreams. Although it is appropriate to take steps to ensure you are not outspending your financial resources, it’s not the only strategy. There’s no reason you can’t also simultaneously endeavor to boost your income. Getting by with less is a short-term strategy, not a way of life. Taking steps to generate more income is a long-term strategy. A poverty mentality is when a person believes they will never have as much money as they would like. A poverty mentality inhibits creating more. There are various justifications given for this outlook. “I’m not smart enough,” “I don’t know how,” “I’m just not lucky,” “It takes money to make money,” “Nothing ever works for me,” “I don’t know the right people,” and “I’m too old to start now,” are just some of the frequently used excuses. People who don’t believe they can
Dare to Live
by Bryan Golden achieve more won’t achieve more. They have programmed their minds to limit their accomplishments. They have a poverty mindset. A person in this mode must change their outlook before they can change their results. One of the best ways of increasing your income is by increasing your service to others. You can get everything you want in your life by helping enough other people get what they want in theirs. In your quest to create more, you must be honest and ethical. Treating others with courtesy and respect is imperative. Taking any ethical shortcuts is a dead-end road which leads off of a cliff. Embarking on a negative path may provide the illusion of faster gains, but ultimately ends in disaster.
A desire to achieve more is a great start, which must be accompanied by a specific plan on how to do so. Your detailed plan should consist of workable steps which can be readily implemented. The question to ask yourself is, “How can I be of more value to others?” Your knowledge, skills, and abilities are aspects of yourself, which can always be improved. This translates into how much you know, what can you do, and how well can you do it. Regardless of where you are now, you can immediately take steps to enhance your knowledge, skills, and abilities. How much you earn is connected to how difficult it is to replace you. This is why entry level jobs usually have the lowest salaries. As you develop yourself to be able to do things most others can’t, your income will rise accordingly. Attitude is just as important as your knowledge, skills, and abilities. Being a person with a can-do attitude, combined with a determination to solve problems, makes you a valuable asset. These characteristics distinguish you from the others in
the workplace. Having a personal standard of excellence is an invaluable asset that boosts your ability to create more. A standard of excellence involves doing more than is expected. Demonstrating a standard of excellence is how people get promotions and raises. You create more because you are worth more Constantly looking for additional ways to be of service also enables you to create more. Take initiative. Deliver more than people expect. This is effective for both employees and business owners. Getting by with less is just a short-term survival strategy to use while you are working diligently to create more. There is a limit to how much you can cut back. There is no limit to how much you can create. NOW AVAILABLE: “Dare to Live Without Limits,” the book. Visit www.BryanGolden. com or your bookstore.

Latin America is ripping off U.S. manufacturers By Ryan Ong When people think of American manufacturing, they envision huge factories churning out vehicles and planes. But there’s more to manufacturing than heavy equipment. American workers make advanced medications that treat cancer, biodegradable plastics that reduce pollution, and microchips that give the Smartphone more computing power than NASA had when it put a man on the moon. This high-tech side of our manufacturing sector is under attack. Some of America’s trading partners in Latin America are disregarding legal protections for intellectual property -- and allowing firms to steal American innovators’ ideas. Such practices harm our economy and our workers. U.S. trade officials must urge their Latin American counterparts to stop this abuse. High-tech manufacturing supports millions of American jobs. More than 1 million workers help manufacture specialized computer and communications equipment. Nearly 300,000 produce medicines.
Guest Editorial About 400,000 create batteries and electrical device components. These jobs wouldn’t exist without intellectual property protections. If manufacturers were unable to patent their ideas, rivals could steal their proprietary technology and processes with impunity. Few companies would risk the years of effort and billions of dollars needed to create new products. Strong intellectual property protections also benefit consumers. Everyone who has used a 3D printer, worn a smart watch, or installed solar cells can thank intellectual property rights for creating incentives for innovators to bring those products to market. Unfortunately, many Latin American nations are abusing laws, which allow domestic manufacturers to infringe on foreign inven-
tors’ patents to create copycat products. Longstanding international agreements set clear guidelines to ensure that compulsory licenses are only employed in public health emergencies, like an outbreak. If a foreign manufacturer is unable or unwilling to sell the drug in quantities sufficient to bring the outbreak under control, then a government could permit a local drug manufacturer to produce a generic version for a limited period. But that’s not what’s happening. In Brazil, the government has discussed using compulsory licenses to “promote local production” of pharmaceuticals. The Dominican Republic has tried to issue a compulsory license for a blood thinner. Countries may see compulsory licensing as a shortcut to reduce health spending and make up for underinvestment in their healthcare infrastructures. But revoking intellectual property rights diminishes incentives to invest in the development of the cures of tomorrow. This goes beyond pharmaceuticals. Defending intellectual property, no matter the form, is important. The sale of pirated goods costs Colombia $750 million annu-
Support local businesses with your purchases By Jim Hightower “Cyber Monday” came and went — did you get out there and buy stuff? You don’t actually have to “get out there” anywhere, for this gimmicky shopshop-shop day lures us to consume without leaving home, or even getting out of bed. Concocted by Amazon, the online marketing monopolist, Cyber Monday is a knockoff of Black Friday — just another ploy by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to siphon sales from real stores. Seems innocent enough, but behind Amazon’s online convenience and discounted prices is a predatory business model based on exploitation of workers, bullying of suppliers, dodging of taxes, and
use of crude anti-competitive force against America’s Main Street businesses. A clue into Amazon’s ethics came when Bezos instructed his staff to get evercheaper prices from small-business suppliers by stalking them “the way a cheetah would pursue a sickly gazelle.” John Crandall, who owns Old Town Bike Shop in Colorado Springs, is one who’s under attack. He offers fair prices, provides good jobs, pays rent and taxes, and lives in and supports the community. But he’s noticed that more and more shoppers come in to try out bikes and get advice, yet not buy anything. Instead, their smartphones scan the barcode of the bike they want, then they go online to purchase it from Amazon — cheaper than Crandall’s
wholesale price. `You see, the cheetah is a multibilliondollar-a-year beast that can sell that bike at a loss, then make up the loss on sales of the thousands of other products it peddles. This amounts to corporate murder of small business. It’s illegal, but Amazon is doing it every day in practically every community. So, let’s pledge to buy from local businesses that support our communities. For information, go to American Independent Business Alliance: www.amiba.net.

ally. In Paraguay, counterfeiting fuels $17 billion in illegal trade each year. It also hurts our country. Counterfeiting, piracy, and intellectual property theft cost U.S. companies $600 billion annually. There are several steps that Latin American governments can take to better protect intellectual property. Countries could issue clearer guidelines for compulsory licensing that limit the practice to true public health emergencies. Governments could also crack down on companies that condone the counterfeiting of manufactured goods. The health of U.S. manufacturing depends on moves like these that would safeguard intellectual property.

Sauder Village begins work on phase two of ‘20s Main Street Sauder Village has begun work on Phase Two of the 1920s Main Street Community, with contractors working on site preparation, building relocation and new construction to continue the replication of a 1920s Main Street typical to Northwest Ohio. “Thanks to funding from the Ohio State Capital Appropriations and other generous supporters, steps to begin construction of Phase 2 of our 1920s Main Street Community are now possible,” shared Debbie Sauder David, President and CEO. “This phase will include moving of the District 16 School and Dr. McGuffin’s Office to their appropriate place along the timeline as well as constructing the foundations and exteriors of the east and west Main Street Buildings. A 1920s gas station and auto dealership is also being built.” While funding has been secured to begin construction, partners are still needed to complete the project. “From a soda fountain, candy shop, theater and grocery store to a fire station, bank, hardware store and more…we are excited about our plans for the continued development of our 1920s Main Street Community,” shared Andy Brodbeck, Director of Development. “When you think about how generous people have been, it is truly humbling, and we are so grateful for all the needed support that continues to come in to help make this project a reality.” The “Walk Through Time” at Sauder Village has been developed over the past 16 years with the help of staff, volunteers, contractors, donors and capital funding.

Clay grad Cody Achter proves dreams come true By Melissa Burden Press Contributing Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Growing up in Oregon, Cody Achter had no idea that he would end up working for one of his musical idols. He likely never would have guessed that one day, he would be able to pick up his idol’s album, and look at his own artwork on the cover. But that’s precisely what happened. A 2009 Clay High School graduate, Achter grew up with his late father Kenny, his mother Merry, and brothers Dustin, a 2002 Clay graduate and Todd, a 2006 Clay graduate. Achter was in the visual communication program in high school. Although he loved music, he decided to pursue a degree in graphic design. “I decided that graphic design probably would allow me to earn a living,” Achter said. “If you are into design, you want to do an album cover. I knew I would one day design a cover, but I did not know who I would do it for.” Achter went to the School of Advertising Art, now The Modern College of Design, in Kettering, Ohio. He graduated in 2011 with an associate of applied business degree. He moved to Texas to be near his mother, although he did not have a job at the time. “I was working at a Kroger at the time,” he said. “I volunteered for the Dallas Society of Visual Communication (DSVC). While doing that, I got a referral to apply at an advertising agency, The Marketing Arm, in Dallas. I was a junior art director there for two years.” Then Achter decided to move to Los Angeles with $500 in his savings account. “I just thought it was time to move to LA,” he said. “I always dreamed about living here. I started to job hunt and found a graphic design job, working from home. After about a year, I saw an ad for a job with a place called ‘I.am.bizzy.’ I had no idea what the company was. Achter said he walked up to the “Star Wars-like” building for his interview. He was told he would be interviewed by William. “They kept saying, ‘William this,’ and “William that,’” Achter said with a laugh. “I really had no idea. Then I was told I would interview with will.i.am.” For the uninitiated, will.i.am, along with apl.de.ap and Taboo, are the founding members of the musical group The Black Eyed Peas. “When I was in high school, they were one of the biggest groups out there,” Achter said. “I was shocked. I am a hip-hop connoisseur. I was familiar with will.i.am’s older and newer work. I was hired that day. I am just amped to be around somebody-

who loves music like me.” Achter said he is in his dream job and he loves working for will.i.am. “He is really cool,” Achter said. “He has been referred to as a ‘Calm Kanye,’ in that he is very busy doing a lot of things. Will.i.am is very generous and I admire his philanthropy and what he does for the

community, and people. He is a super cool human.” Achter has been a graphic designer for team will.i.am, since September 2014. He is responsible for designing album covers, packaging, websites, logos, and apparel for the company. Achter has also helped edit music videos. Achter redesigned the logo for the Peas in 2014. He, along with Eddie Axley and Pow Wang, also helped design the comic book art for the Black Eyed Peas book, ‘The Black Eyed Peas Present: Masters of the Sun – The Zombie Chronicles,” published by Marvel in August 2017. “I knew the group had an album in the works since I started working there in 2014,” he explained. “The art on the cover of the comic book is the same style as the art on the new album. It all ties together.” Achter is now able to see his dream of having his art on an album cover. The Black Eyed Peas released their seventh album, “Masters of the Sun,” on Oct. 26. “This has been a dream of mine forever,” he said. “Now it has come true. I guess it is now time for another dream to work towards.”
