Exploring options

July 26, 2012

The Auglaize County commissioners continue to explore their options for funding the construction of a new dog shelter.

“We are still trying to figure out where we are at financially with the building,” Commissioner Doug Spencer told Dog Warden Russ Bailey during a meeting this week. “We are looking at whether any advance is possible toward the Dog and Kennel Fund. There is still the potential that we may not be able to advance you but the need for a shelter has not lessened. Borrowing money for it may be the only viable option we have.”

He said five bites came from pit bulls.

Federal assistance and money are available for Ohioans whose homes were foreclosed in 2009 and 2010, a U.S. legislator says in his personal push to notify 140,000 people in his home state who may qualify for a free review.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown revisited the issue after only 6,000 of the 140,000 eligible Ohioans initiated the free Independent Foreclosure Review (IFR) process and because Congress extended the review deadline for a final time to Sept. 30.

A former state official recently returned to the political limelight to support a new tax initiative proposed by the current governor.

Former state Agriculture Director Fred Dailey favors Gov.

The proposed tax on natural gas and oil production would only affect large producing wells.
