State Rep. Haraz N. Ghanbari Files Petitions

Before joining the Ohio House, Representative Ghanbari worked in higher education and has served in the military for over 18 years….

BOWLING GREEN – State Representative Haraz N. Ghanbari announced his petitions have been filed and verified to run to retain the position of Ohio State Representative for the 3rd District.

“I strongly encourage the election of Representative Ghanbari,” Speaker of the House Larry Householder said. “I proudly endorse him to continue serving the people of the 3rd District.”

The 3rd House District encompasses all of Wood County. Representative Ghanbari is currently in his first term.

While in the legislature, Representative Ghanbari has been a champion for the people of Northwest Ohio. He voted in favor of saving our region’s Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Plant, which, alongside the Perry Plant, saves over 4,000 jobs and $500 million in Ohio’s gross domestic product.

Additionally, Representative Ghanbari voted in favor of funding critical infrastructure projects, investing $8.5 billion in roads, bridges, and highways. He sponsored legislation to fight for our region’s water protection and maintenance. Representative Ghanbari’s H2Ohio will establish a fund for Ohio’s water quality programs.

“Ensuring clean water for generations of Ohioans and protecting farmlands for those same generations to come is my focus,” Representative Ghanbari said.

Representative Ghanbari voted to support health and human service projects in Ohio, including doubling proposed foster care funding. He also voted to provide funding for kinship care programs, which help kinship caregivers locate support services available to them.

Speaker Householder named Representative Ghanbari to serve on the Energy & Natural Resources, Finance, Higher Education, Insurance, and Armed Services & Veterans Affairs committees. He also serves on the Energy & Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy Generation and Finance Subcommittee on Primary & Secondary Education.

Before joining the Ohio House, Representative Ghanbari worked in higher education and has served in the military for over 18 years. He is a Navy veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Operation Inherent Resolve, and an Army veteran of Operation Joint Forge in Bosnia. He currently serves a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy Reserve. He is a former staff photojournalist for the Associated Press, working as a member of the White House and Pentagon press corps.

Representative Ghanbari lives in Perrysburg with his wife and two children.

Social Security Expands Public Hours at Offices Nationwide

Wednesdays to Return to Full Public Service Hours; Agency to Hire 1,100 Direct Service Employees….

Starting on January 8, 2020, Social Security offices nationwide will be open to the public on Wednesday afternoons, Andrew Saul, Commissioner of Social Security, announced.   This change restores Wednesday public service hours that were last in place in late 2012.  “I don’t want someone to come to our office at 2:30 on a Wednesday only to find our doors closed,” Commissioner Saul said.

In another move to improve service to the public, Commissioner Saul announced in his Open Letter to the Public at www.ssa.gov/agency/coss-message.html that the agency is hiring 1,100 front line employees to provide service on the agency’s National 800 Number and in its processing centers.  The agency is currently bringing onboard 100 new processing center employees and approximately 500 new teleservice representatives for the 800 Number.  An additional 500 hires for the 800 Number will occur later in 2020.

“Improving service is my top priority.  Increasing full public service hours at our nationwide network of more than 1,200 field offices is the right thing to do and will  provide additional access,” Commissioner Saul said.  “The hiring of a thousand new employees to provide service through our National 800 Number and an additional 100 hires to process people’s Social Security benefits at our processing centers around the country are steps in the right direction in our mission to greatly improve the service we provide.”

Currently, a field office is generally open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to Noon on Wednesdays.  Beginning on January 8, 2020, offices will remain open until 4:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, with typical field office hours from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

While the agency continues to improve both the access to and the experience with its services, it is important to note that most Social Security services do not require the public to take time to visit an office.  People may create a my Social Security account, a personalized online service, at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.

 Through their personal my Social Security account, people can check personal information and conduct business with Social Security.  If they already receive Social Security benefits, they can start or change direct deposit online, and if they need proof of their benefits, they can print or download a current Benefit Verification Letter from their account.

People not yet receiving benefits can use their online account to get a personalized Social Security Statement, which provides earnings history information as well as estimates of future benefits.  Currently, residents in 40 states and the District of Columbia may request a replacement Social Security card online if they meet certain requirements.  The portal also includes a retirement calculator and links to information about other online services, such as applications for retirement, disability, and Medicare benefits.

Many Social Security services are also conveniently available by dialing toll-free, 1-800-772-1213.  People who are deaf or hard of hearing may call Social Security’s TTY number, 1-800-325-0778.

Village Council News from November 19th Meeting

Special meeting scheduled for November 26th to fill empty council seat….

The Village Council voted to hold a special meeting on November 26th at 5:30pm to fill the vacant seat on council that was created after the recent resignation of Councilman Art Patterson. They are required by law to have it filled by December 3rd.

NB Boy Scout Troop #315 member and Eagle Candidate Aaron Boes, explains his potential Eagle project to the Village Council at the November 19th meeting.

 

North Baltimore Boy Scout Troop #315 member Aaron Boes requested permission to build a Memory Tree park with a pergola and water fountain on the Water Treatment Plant property as an Eagle Scout project. He gave a presentation of his plans, complete with diagrams, maps, cost estimates and estimated timeline to the Council. He met with the Village Tree Commission to help form the plans.



Councilman Aaron Patterson made the motion to approve the project and plans and suggested the Village Tree Commission earmark $500 from their budget to contribute to the project. Council approved.  Aaron Boes is a student at Elmwood High School and a member of the North Baltimore Scout Troop.

Other conversation at the meeting included an update on the 100 block of Main Street project. Village Administrator Michael Brillhart shared that Geddis Paving is scheduled to return to the village for unfinished work on both the eat and west sides of Main Street. He also talked about the progress of the street lighting for that project. “There has to be a control box panel installed (and approved) near the fire station, before the lights can be installed,” he said. 

Brillhart also shared he continues to struggle with communicating with CSX concerning an on-going drainage issue in the village, as well as the need for improvements at various crossings within the village. He has made multiple attempts to contact CSX in Jacksonville, Florida, Columbus, Ohio, and Willard, Ohio with little to no response.

A discussion was held concerning the continuing standing water issue on State Route 18 in front of Reservoir 2. It is believed the issue involves the north side of Route 18 as well, directly across from the area on the south side. There are still  some old fashioned brick catch basins on the south side area involved. 

The Finance Officer Tony Swartz has completed the 2020 Appropriation ordinance for it’s first reading. 

 

Woessner Seeking Re-Election in 2020

Filed his formal petitions to seek re-election last Friday….

Wood County Probate and Juvenile Court Judge Dave Woessner has announced his intent to seek re-election in the year 2020.  Judge Woessner filed his formal petitions to seek re-election on November 22, 2019.

Regarding his decision to seek re-election, Judge Woessner noted:  “It has been an honor and privilege to serve as Wood County’s Probate and Juvenile Court Judge for nearly 21 years.  As I promised on the day I took office, I will continue to work hard to insure the courts and its facilities are operated fairly and efficiently.  The citizens of Wood County can be assured I will work tirelessly as their Probate and Juvenile Court Judge.”

Judge Woessner has been Wood County’s Probate and Juvenile Court Judge for nearly 21 years – taking office on December 28, 1998.  He is currently again serving as the Presiding Judge of the Wood County Common Pleas Court.  As part of his position, Judge Woessner administers the Wood County Juvenile Detention Center and the Juvenile Residential Center of Northwest Ohio.  A member of the Ohio Association of Probate Judges and the Ohio Association of Juvenile Court Judges, Judge Woessner has served for many years on the Ohio Juvenile Law and Procedure Committee.  Over the years, Judge Woessner has instructed Judges and Magistrates from throughout Ohio for the Ohio Judicial Conference and in every year since taking office, has presented a free continuing legal education program for local attorneys and staff on probate and juvenile law and procedures.

During his time in office, Judge Woessner has initiated or administered a wide variety of services, projects and programming benefitting the public and court users.  The Probate and Juvenile Court websites initiated by Judge Woessner early in his tenure now provide a wide variety of forms and information and each now contain an online docket.  Electronic filing was introduced for the public dockets of the Juvenile Court in 2019.  The Probate Court’s Volunteer Guardian Program operating since 2011 provides assistance to individuals and families in need throughout Wood County.  The Juvenile Court’s Court Appointed Special Advocate Program has achieved national accreditation and the Juvenile Detention Center and the Juvenile Residential Center have consistently received outstanding reviews. Juvenile Court programming such as an Intervention and Diversion Program (began in 2018); a Safe and Healthy Sexuality Program (began in 2018); county wide community service work; the court’s theft offender’s program; gun safety awareness classes; and a wide range of other programs or services have been made available for the public and families involved with the Juvenile Court.

Judge Woessner’s service in office has further been marked by conservative and efficient use of taxpayer resources.  The expansion of the Wood County Juvenile Court Center completed in 2002 was finished nearly $400,000.00 under budget.  In addition, consistently over the years, the Probate and Juvenile Courts have returned significant sums of appropriated monies to the general fund of Wood County.

Prior to taking office, Judge Woessner served as a Magistrate in the Wood County Court of Common Pleas, General Division.  Judge Woessner also served as both a Chief Assistant and Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in the Wood County Prosecutor’s Office handling cases ranging from capital murder to misdemeanor level offenses.  Judge Woessner was also a partner in the private law firm of Middleton, Roebke and Woessner and served as an acting judge in the Bowling Green Municipal Court.  He is a past president of the Wood County Bar Association and past chairman of the Wood County Bar Association Ethics, Grievance, and Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee.

Judge Woessner also has a long history of recognized community involvement.  He has been actively involved in a wide variety of organizations and activities.  His longtime support of countywide DARE programs earned him the 2009 Ohio Honorary DARE Officer Award.  Judge Woessner has also been recognized for his collaborative leadership and efforts by the Wood County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board, the Ohio Educational Service Association, and the Wood County Gang Task Force.

Judge Woessner and his wife Joan have been married for 33 years.  They have two adult children, both graduates of Bowling Green High School.

PUCO denies AEP Ohio request to charge customers out of market generation costs

Request to impose a nonbypassable charge on all of its customers for the purpose of underwriting its financial support for certain electric generating facilities.

COLUMBUS, OHIO (Nov. 21, 2019) – The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) today issued its opinion and order denying AEP Ohio’s request to impose a nonbypassable charge on all of its customers for the purpose of underwriting its financial support for certain electric generating facilities.

Ohio law requires that prior to authorizing any such charge, the PUCO must first determine the associated electric generation facilities are needed based upon resource planning projections.

In its order, the Commission found AEP Ohio did not demonstrate the need for the facilities, regardless of which of the competing definitions of need were used to evaluate the proposed charge. Having determined that the necessary demonstration of need was lacking, the Commission concluded that its authority to approve the proposed charge is also lacking.

In its application, AEP Ohio argued that the facilities were needed because its customers indicated they desired them, as well as to realize the purported economic benefits resulting from the facilities, and to correct alleged market failures. However, the Commission found these arguments to be without merit, citing numerous deficiencies in its analysis. The Commission also noted that Ohio’s current legal framework and options available in the retail electric marketplace provide ample opportunities for customers to act on their electric generation supply, price and technology preferences.

“Today’s decision is not about any particular generating technology. Rather, it is about what must be demonstrated by an electric distribution utility before Ohio law might allow the PUCO to approve the proposed charge,” stated PUCO Chairman Sam Randazzo. “Indeed, Ohio’s ‘customer choice’ framework provides AEP Ohio customers with the individual right to do directly what the proposal would have compelled all such customers to do regardless of their individual preferences.”

Finally, the Commission noted that nothing in its order precludes the project developers, AEP Ohio or its affiliates from pursuing development of the generating facilities. Further, the Commission noted that the recently enacted House Bill 6 makes the proposed electric generation facilities eligible to seek financial support from the Renewable Energy Fund.

Ohio law requires electric distribution utilities to annually file reports with the PUCO detailing, among other things, forecasts of energy supply and demand over a 10-year period. On Sept. 19, 2018, AEP Ohio filed an amendment to its long-term forecast report. On Sept. 27, 2018, AEP Ohio filed an application seeking approval of the inclusion of two solar energy resources totaling 400 MW in the company’s renewable generation rider.

A copy of today’s opinion and order is available on the PUCO’s Docketing Information System (DIS) by searching for case 18-501-EL-FOR.
