Via Vision:Toledo on Facebook, Paula Burrows says: A big thank you to Kendall Richardson of Richardson Construction and his crew for the excellent work on this remodel. It is taking time to get completed and it will be great to see a business locate in the beautiful building. Exciting to see the new windows installed and the new siding. Next will be an official front entrance and some new doors. New remodel is happening at 102 Kellogg Way in downtown Toledo.
Toledo City Council met Tuesday night to thank Public Works Department, welcome new business and residents, and discuss 2017 budget.
Public Works Superintendent Steve Blahut called in staff Monday for an emergency water line break at Cole & Second Streets, spending over 9 hours to repair the rupture in sub-freezing weather while Police Chief John Brockmueller provided traffic control where SR 505 accumulated ice from the runoff.
City Clerk Michelle Whitten and Council members welcomed Matt Wheeler of Toledo’s Paws and Stay Bark & Breakfast on Salmon Creek Road. Matt & Kyle Wheeler, who reside on-site at their dog-boarding facility, arrived in Toledo September 2016.
Budget discussions centered on gains made in the past 5 years: city offices open full time, police force expanded and equipment upgraded plus contracted services with Winlock, capital projects loan retired.
Under new business: Liquor license application from Short Stop - approved; 2017 Amusement Device application from Gateway Pizza - approved.
Adjourned 6:26 p.m.
Toledo City Council meets 6 p.m. first and third Mondays (Tuesday in event of holiday closure) at City Hall. Public invited. Contact Toledo City Hall for special accommodations at (360)864-4564.
Lewis County Interlocal (Medic One) convened Tuesday evening to hear Lewis County Medic One Supervisor Report, sign a bargaining agreement, accept a property agreement to relocate the paramedics residence, and consider a sprint vehicle purchase.
One current part-time paramedic was approached to fill a full-time vacancy after January 25, and may step into the position. Applications for full and part-time paramedics available to download at Lewis County Medic One. District 2 reported they filled their recently advertised position.
Board members adjourned for a 10-minute executive session, returning to sign a 3-year bargaining agreement.
District 2, often short-staffed, asked why the paramedics shouldn’t respond to BLS* calls in the area, saying this issue arose 6 months ago and District 2 “needs the manpower” at times. Volunteers are urgently needed.
The Board outlined budget and priority restraints, but agreed to leave the decision to District Chiefs for a 90-day trial.
Relocating the paramedics base to Tucker road was discussed at length and ultimately passed.
The decision to acquire a new sprint vehicle was tabled for 3 months.

Gallery 505 Artists Co-op features:
On Health: Chris Kresser, a functional medicine practitioner featured on Dr. Oz and NPR, produced this podcast on Treating Viral Pneumonia and Other Infections.
Dr. Mercola posts a reversal on barring young children from peanuts, saying: Research actually suggests that exposing children to peanuts early on can help reduce their risk of developing an allergy, while strict avoidance actually heightens the risk.
Mark Sisson, a former elite endurance athlete turned lifestyle coach, offers this surprising conclusion after researching conventional science: The truth is, fat is the preferred fuel of human metabolism and has been for most of human evolution.
His article is titled A Metabolic Paradigm Shift, or Why Fat Is the Preferred Fuel for Human Metabolism. Think Jack LaLanne.
Jorge Cruise, who states “Fitness Begins In The Kitchen” agrees.
And finally, by reader request, Asthmastory.com provides the unconventional treatment that is restoring my own breath and life day by day. Note: this is not my first regimen; two previous trials halted early due to unknown virulence of one bacteria, and simple loss of income. As always, YMMV.
