Novel Idea to Pay Fines - Owens Community College

by Victoria Luhring Realty Blog

Owens Community College's Novel Idea for Paying Fines 

Owens Community College has a novel idea for helping needy families over the holiday season.  You can pay your parking violation √ by donating canned foods or toys of up to $100.00. 

Each Can will be worth $1.00 and Toys are worth $2.00 in fines for every $1.00 in their value.  Owens Community College participates in  Operation Breadbasket, Perrysburg Christian United, Salvation Army and Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program.  

 This year, food baskets, toys, and clothing will be available to be picked up by needy families at the township fire department, 26711 Lime City Rd., from 9 a.m. to noon on Dec. 15. Everyone is encouraged to make donations for the many families in need of assistance, this isn't limited to fine violation donations.  

 Chief Cope said this is OCC's fourth year participating in Operation Breadbasket. The college has forgiven thousands of dollars in fines in return for canned food and toy donations. "Our goal is to provide a little extra incentive for individuals to donate to Operation Breadbasket," she said.

 The OCC collection point is inside the entrance to the safety and security office, which is in Alumni Hall on the Oregon Road campus in Perrysburg Township. Donations are accepted around the clock. Donations also are accepted 24 hours daily at the township police and fire stations, located next to each other.

 Annie Herman, a Perrysburg Township dispatcher who coordinates Operation Breadbasket, said this is the program's 30th year.

 Outerwear such as coats, hats, jackets, gloves, scarves, and boots are particularly needed.  They will  take anything as long as it's in good shape. A set of dishes, for instance, would be very welcomed. We have a list of 100 families from the Salvation Army."

 The biggest single donor so far this season was the Perrysburg schools, providing almost 8,000 items.

 Terry Teopas, principal of Frank Elementary, the schools' coordinator for the effort, said Toth Elementary collected the most items among the schools: 2,000. "It's a fun exercise for the elementary school students," he said. "They count the items, and it's sort of a math lesson."

                        Who's in Toledo?
           Olympic Hero Mike Eruzione to Visit Toledo Dec. 12

The Toledo Walleye's are honored to have Olympic Hero and former Toledo Goaldigger, Mike Eruzione drop the ceremonial first puck of the game and brand the new Luca County Arena.  The appearance comes nearly 30 years after Eruzione helped Team USA win the gold medal at the Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, NY.

Mike will honor Toledo by signing autographs during the game (go to for further details on specific times of autographs).

What Mike Eruzione has to say:  “I’m excited to come and see the new rink and also to come back and see old friends and players still living in the area. Toledo has always been a great hockey town and the Goaldiggers fans were great.”

Toledo Walleye President/General Manager Joe Napoli said, “Mike’s visit will inspire many great memories for our fans of a time in our history when the U.S. and Russian relations were most tense and the Olympic Games were very meaningful…the underdog collegiate Americans proved that we hadn’t lost the American “can do” attitude” at a time when our Country had its’ doubts. I look forward to sharing the story with my children.”

House Hunting Tips- House Hunting Mistakes

    Big House Hunting Mistakes, House Hunting Tips

Falling In Love with a House that's above your Price Range
 It's best to know your price range by getting a pre-approval.
 And try starting out on the lower end of your price range,
 there may be no need to search in your higher range. 

Thinking you have Found a One of a Kind
  Even if you have a long wish list, chances are that there
  will be more than one home available that fits your list.
  Another home that is similar may be less expensive and
  be the dream home for less. Keep in mind that the builder
  of the home you love built more than one, with many
  similarities.  House Hunter Patients required.

Out Bid again and become Desperate
You've been search for a while now, and get out bid or
 even start giving up on your wish list.  Don't make a 
 purchase out of fear it's not going to happen.

Overlooking Major Problems in a Home
  Consider your finances when purchasing a home that
  has structual, appearance or location issues.  All three
  of these can become costly upon ownership or even
  at the time you wish to sell. House Hunters Beware 

Thinking You can Fix This or That - no problem
Too often buyers know they can fix it but do you really
  have the TIME and Budget to do it.  Evaluate all the
  expenses and time realistically.  How long can you live
  with it, how long will it  take you to do it. 

Market Condition Opportunity
  The market condition has allowed home buyers to
  purchase New or Almost New Homes for less than it
  actually cost to build.  Materials for repairing haven't
  declined at the same rate as home value has.
  House hunting Toledo areas, you'll see it.

Fitting into your lifestyle
 If it doesn't fit - don't commit

IF it Fits be ready to commit
  It is hard to balance out being too anxious and being 
  patient.  Sound decisions are based on knowing what
  will make you happy. House Hunter tips

Offering More than a House is Worth
  Getting yourself into a home that is selling for more
  than the banks appraisal value, could become a nightmare. 
  Unless your positive, for what ever reason, don't
  start out under water.
