Flu shots being encouraged earlier this year

Vaccine takes two weeks to become effective…..

BOWLING GREEN — Health officials are encouraging people to get the flu shot earlier this year so that it can become effective before influenza viruses are widespread.

Most people can get a flu shot by scheduling an appointment with their health care provider or simply walking into their pharmacy. It takes about two weeks to develop antibodies that protect against flu, so make plans to get vaccinated before flu season begins. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that anyone 6 months of age or older get a flu vaccine by the end of October.

Every flu season is different, but millions of people get the flu each year, while hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized and thousands more die from flu-related causes. The flu vaccine does not cause influenza, which is a contagious respiratory illness that infects the nose, throat and lungs.

Wood County Community Health Center offers the flu vaccine to established patients. To become a patient or for more information, call 419-354-9049 or visit WCHealthCenter.org

Wood County Health Department provides flu immunization for children 18 or under whose health care providers do not offer vaccines. For more information, call 419-354-8402 ext. 3258.

Frequent handwashing is one of the best ways to avoid acquiring or transmitting many illnesses, including influenza. Also make sure to disinfect surfaces at home and at work, cough and sneeze into your sleeve, and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

The mission of Wood County Health Department is to prevent disease, promote healthy lifestyles and protect the health of everyone in Wood County. Our Community Health Center provides comprehensive medical services for men, women and children. We welcome all patients, including uninsured or underinsured clients, regardless of their ability to pay, and we accept most third-party insurance. For more information, visit WoodCountyHealth.org

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.

PIPELINE VALUES POSITIVELY IMPACT LOCAL TAX BASE

The 2017 reappraisal resulted in a countywide assessed valuation totaling $3.263 billion……

Wood County Auditor Matthew Oestreich is pleased to announce new construction and public utility values for tax year 2018 payable in 2019.

“New construction in Wood County has rebounded and we are witnessing the impact on the tax base,” Auditor Oestreich stated.  New construction value totaled $33.7 million in assessed value.  “Construction activity is visible throughout the county, which is a great indicator of a healthy economy,” shared Oestreich.

The prospect of increased values over the next several years projects as a continued positive; First Solar is building a 1.2 million square foot production facility in the county, and NSG in Rossford is exploring options for expansion.  Public utility values tallied significant gains for tax year 2018, adding $73.5 million in assessed value.  The largest of these values resulted from the Rover pipeline at $57.5 million. Overall new construction has added nearly 3.3% to the tax base of Wood County in one year’s time.

This week, the Board of Revision ruled on the final cases of tax year 2017.  The board consists of Auditor Oestreich, Treasurer Jane Spoerl, and Commissioner Doris Herringshaw and is charged with determining the market value on formal taxpayer valuation complaints.  The board heard 68 complaints: 51 filed by taxpayers seeking a value reduction, and 17 filed by school districts requesting a value increase.  The board is presented evidence in the form of comparable sales, cost of construction, or appraisals.  The evidence is evaluated and the board determines a final value and if either party disagrees with the decision, they reserve the right to appeal to the state board of tax appeals. Wood County has 15 such appeals.

This year, the Auditor’s Office also received and rectified values on 165 informal complaints.  Of the 165 complaints, 73 complaints resulted in a no value change while the remainder saw a combined reduction in assessed value totaling $800,000.  “The appeal process allows taxpayers a voice to help the Auditor determine the true market value of some parcels which may be statistical outliers.  For $16.75 per parcel my office determined the value of all 75,000 parcels,” shared Oestreich. The quality of the recent 2017 mass reappraisal was exceptional with a Perrysburg resident serving as the project supervisor, and two other Wood County residents working on the reappraisal.  “Having appraisers living in Wood County is a definite benefit to the process of determining real estate values, as they have a pulse on the local market,” shared Oestreich.

The 2017 reappraisal resulted in a countywide assessed valuation totaling $3.263 billion.  The next reappraisal will be completed for tax year 2023 with a “triennial update” scheduled for tax year 2020 under the direction of the Ohio Department of Taxation.

“Like a Roaring Lion”

An NBXpress Devotion by Pastor Ralph J. Mineo…….

One of my favorite Bible passages is 1 Peter 5:8 which has the words, “Like a roaring lion your adversary, the devil, prowls around looking for someone to devour.”

One of the most powerful images of the spiritual life is that of a spiritual battle. As Christians, we’re called to make a stand for Jesus Christ, and our daily lives are the battleground. An old hymn says: “Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before! Christ, the royal master, leads against the foe, forward into battle, see his banner go!”

The last place I would apply these hymn-words are in actual physical warfare with other children of God. Those words are intended to point to our spiritual battle against the evil one, seeking to devour us.

The words that come both before and after that Bible verse about the roaring lion are super-important. Before the roaring lion statement are the words “Discipline yourselves, keep alert.” Spiritual strictness helps us get closer to God and to what God wants us to be.

The words that come after the roaring lion verse are: “resist him, steadfast in your faith.” So yes, it’s spiritual! It’s about faith, the free and undeserved gift of God that keeps us safe. Faith keeps us on the right track. Faith keeps us from being spiritually devoured.

Some Bible scholars hold that the term “Roaring Lion” is a title: a designation of an older, retired lion who doesn’t function in the capacity he once did. His energy is sapped. He’s been retired. He’s the “Lion Emeritus,” if you will. He really doesn’t have any real power left. The only thing he really has left is his roar, and it’s certainly weaker than in days past.

If this Bible text refers to such a “Roaring Lion,” then we’re being told: just walk away when you hear the roar. Don’t get caught in a trap that is only sound. You’re strong enough to resist the lion’s power. The lion’s teeth have lost their sharpness. The lion has been declawed. We believe that the “Roaring Lion” lost its power by the cross and resurrection of Christ Jesus.

With our Christian faith, we can resist even being afraid of “Roaring Lion,” who has been defeated by the Cross and Resurrection of Jesus Christ!

We need to resist! We need to discipline ourselves! “Roaring Lion” is still out there! As Peter wrote, the roaring lion is an adversary and is still looking for someone to devour. But God’s word is calling us: do not be that person who gets devoured by an old defeated lion.

Discipline yourselves. Keep alert. Resist. Be steadfast in your faith, “with the cross of Jesus going on before!”

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…
