SouthWood Traffic Update – Rudolph & Oil Center Project

The Shelly Company began work in Henry Township at the corner of Rudoph Rd and Oil Center Rd.

The Shelly Company began work in Henry Township at the corner of Rudolph Rd and Oil Center Rd.

The intersection is “closed”. However, according to Henry Twp. Chairman John Stewart, “due to this being the middle of the fall harvest, traffic will be maintained for farmers, buses and emergency vehicles.”

For the time being, other vehicles and personal vehicles WILL BE allowed to pass through the intersection, SLOWLY, proceeding with CAUTION, as the work of widening will continue, with intermittent closures.

The project is adding to the roadway 200 feet to the south and 240 feet to the north. The project has been delayed for about 6 weeks, according to Stewart.

Whistle Stop Inn Building Changes Hands

The former Whistle Stop Inn restaurant in Downtown North Baltimore Ohio has finally changed hands, having been on the market nearly 5 years.

The former Whistle Stop Inn restaurant in Downtown North Baltimore Ohio has finally changed hands, having been on the market for nearly 5 years.

CGBARR LLC . (address returns to Jac & Dos, Arlington Ohio) is the new owner of the property. According to Village Historian, Bonnie Knaggs, the folks that purchased the building are not sure of their plans for the name eatery or the menu/theme. They hope to open by the late spring of 2019.

A “pod” and dumpster have been placed at the rear of the building, in preparation for beginning the renovations.

This is yet another positive for North Baltimore, of late, with expansions at most of NB’s manufacturing plants, along with plans and money to improve the NB Downtown Business District and the plans developing for the Northpointe logistics park west of town adjacent to the CSX yard.

Much more to come on all of this…

Manufacturing: Not Necessarily a Dirty Job and Someone Will Be Paid Well to Do It 

Manufacturing jobs in Ohio are going unfilled, and experts say the problem is projected to get worse.

By: Steve Gratz

Manufacturing jobs in Ohio are going unfilled, and experts say the problem is projected to get worse.

According to the National Association of Manufacturers, seven out of 10 Americans consider manufacturing a cornerstone of the economy, but only three in 10 want their children to go into manufacturing. Additionally, the National Association of Manufacturers predicts that 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will be created in the next 10 years, but more than 2 million of those will go unfilled.
