Cars have changed. So have traffic rules, driving conditions and the roads you travel every day. Some drivers age 50-plus have never looked back since they got their first driver's license, but even the most experienced drivers can benefit from brushing up on their driving skills.
This AARP driver safety course, sponsored by the Wood County Committee on Aging, will teach you the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment. You will also learn how to manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time. Cost for the class is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members. Register for the course at Way Library or the Perrysburg Area Senior Center.

In this touching comedy/drama set in 1960s Buenos Aires, 8-year-old Valentin is raised by his poor grandmother and dreams of becoming an astronaut. Valentin, who is delightful and funny, has been completely abandoned by his mother and severely neglected by his father, who only uses him to attract new girlfriends. Longing for a real family, he takes matters into his own hands. Youthfully innocent one moment and wise beyond his years the next, Valentin continually captivates us as he sets out to make sense of his family life and the adults who have made such a mess of it.

Way Library, in cooperation with the League of Women Voters of the Perrysburg Area (LWVPA), welcomes Karl Gebhardt from the Ohio EPA, and Sandy Bihn, Executive Director of the Lake Erie Waterkeeper, who will offer perspectives on the Clean Water Act and the “impaired” designation which would require regulations on the Maumee River Basin.
It is believed that only two populations of lake sturgeon remain in Lake Erie. Through physical habitat assessments done by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and project partners it is believed that the Maumee River is a suitable river for lake sturgeon restoration. This presentation will share information and underwater video taken during those assessments. It will also discuss the historical status of lake sturgeon, reasons for their decline and the on-going restoration efforts.
