Beet goes on: Engineer tries beet juice to treat roads

December 15, 2011

The Auglaize County engineer is trying a new method to combat snow and ice on roads this winter — beet juice.
Starting with a truck equipped with one unit of a beet juice-salt brine mixture, which is to be applied to the limestone and salt mixture before it is laid on county roads, Auglaize County Engineer Doug Reinhart said they are in the process of adding three additional units.
“This time next year I’ll be able to tell you what we’re going to,” Reinhart said regarding whether more units for dispersing the beet juice would be added to county trucks.

December 15, 2011

Two area post offices scheduled for possible closure have been delayed — and now Congress holds the key to their fate.
Members of Congress and the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) officials agreed Tuesday to a five-month moratorium on a plan that would potentially close post office facilities.
Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown acclaimed the moratorium for the 120 post offices and 10 processing facilities in Ohio that have been targeted by the Postal Service as part of the proposed closure review.

Petitions certified, no changes expected

December 15, 2011

With petitions officially certified and accepted by the Auglaize County Elections Board, no changes are expected for the March primary.
“It’s a formality,” Auglaize County Elections Director Carolyn Campbell said.
Board members reviewed the petitions submitted for candidates in county races and then gave them their signatures of approval. All the petitions provided a sufficient number of valid signatures to be accepted.
With the March primary election field set, only one county official is expected to face competition this fall.
