BVHS: ‘Taking Care of You’ Presentation

Part of the ‘Living Through Loss’ Series at Blanchard Valley Hospital….

The February presentation of the “Living through Loss” series will be held on Monday, February 18 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and titled “Taking Care of You.” This presentation will take place in the Marathon Auditorium at Blanchard Valley Hospital located at 1900 South Main Street in Findlay.

“Taking Care of You” will offer the bereaved an opportunity to learn about and enjoy methods of self-care such as relaxing massage therapy, aromatherapy, mindfulness and music, humor and even “mood-lifting” desserts. During grief, many individuals find it difficult to prioritize their care, leading to burnout, exhaustion and even increased illness. This presentation will allow attendees to experience forms of self-care as well as become equipped with tools to perform self-care acts at home to avoid physical, mental or spiritual illness.

This presentation will be led by Ashley Jacobus, licensed professional counselor and registered yoga teacher. Ashley is a certified adult trauma professional and will discuss how grief impacts the physical, mental and emotional self. Ashley is also the executive director of Sunshine Institute where she teaches individuals of all ages how to balance the mind and body through physical activities and behavioral modifications.

“Living Through Loss” is a nine-month educational series that focuses on the issues surrounding the death of a loved one. Each monthly presentation is open to the public and registration is not required. Presentations provide information related to the grief process, offer opportunities for discussion and are held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Marathon Auditorium at Blanchard Valley Hospital. Although the thought of speaking up in a group can be intimidating, many attendees find the discussion helpful as they discover their questions and concerns are similar to others. A bereavement expert is available to speak with attendees in private following the presentation.

This series is sponsored by Bridge Home Health and Hospice. For questions, to learn upcoming dates or to have a full program brochure sent to you, please contact the Bridge bereavement coordinator at 419.423.5351 or email

Pot Holes Getting Bad on Many Roadways

Huge swing in temperatures provide prime conditions for potholes

ODOT crews will be out in force

COLUMBUS – We’ve gone from sub-zero temperatures to highs near 60 degrees in parts of Ohio within just a few days. Mix in some rain and snow and conditions are perfect for the formation of potholes.

Potholes are a common nuisance, particularly during the winter season when the freeze/thaw cycle weakens the pavement. This happens when water seeps into cracks in the pavement, then expands as it freezes. When temperatures warm up, and the ice melts, the pavement contracts, allowing even more moisture in to freeze and thaw. Add traffic on top and the pavement will eventually fail, creating a pothole. Roadways with a high volume of traffic are particularly prone to pothole formation.

Not only should drivers be extra alert for potholes over the next several days, but also our crews working to fill them.

“Our crews have been working around the clock to ensure our roads are as safe as possible,” said Ohio Department of Transportation Director Jack Marchbanks. “When they aren’t spending twelve-hours in a truck plowing snow, they’re working on the roadway patching potholes.”

Pothole Patching

Already this winter, ODOT has used 2,574 tons of asphalt to repair potholes. That’s up from 1,892 tons at the same time last year. Our crews have spent more than 39,000 hours – equivalent to 70 years – patching potholes this winter.

Potholes on ODOT-maintained roadways, which include state and U.S. routes outside of municipalities and all interstates, can be reported by clicking here. Potholes on local roadways should be reported to the agency responsible for their maintenance.
