The Lorain County Sheriff’s Of?ce will be conducting high
visibility traf?c enforcement for the St. Patrick’s Day holiday.
This will be an OVI enforcement Blitz through Wednesday,
March 18. Additional deputies will be on the road in an effort
to reduce alcohol and speed related accidents in selected areas
throughout Lorain County.

Funds recently received from the federal government, in
conjunction with the State of Ohio through the Ohio Traf?c
Safety Of?ce, makes this high visibility enforecment possi-
ble. The Lorain County Sheriff’s Of?ce received $27,409.80
speci?cally for the series of enforcement blitzes that will be
conducted during the holidays and other select times in 2014
and 2015.

Areas targeted will include: State Routes 2, 18, 57, 58,
82, 83, 113, 301, 303, 254, 511 and US 20. These areas were
selected because of incidents of alcohol and accident related

The main goal of these blitzes are to reduce the number of
alcohol and speed related accidents, along with seat belt us-
age, in Lorain County. These types of accidents always have
devastating effects on innocent families.

Phil R. Stammitti, Lorain County Sheriff

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record
of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. --Corinthians 13:4-7

Open burning precautions
urged during wildfire season

Ohioans are advised to be aware of the state’s outdoor burn-
ing regulations and take necessary precautions if they are plan-
ning to burn debris this spring, according to the Ohio Depart-
ment of Natural Resources (ODNR).

“Most wild?res in Ohio are caused by people that are sim-
ply careless when burning trash and other debris,” said Robert
Boyles, state forester and chief of the ODNR Division of For-
estry. “While largely unintentional, these ?res place property
and lives at unnecessary risk.”

Ohio law states that outdoor debris burning is prohibited
from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. during March, April and May. Burning
is limited in the spring due to the abundance of dry fuel on the
ground before small, grassy fuels green up with moisture. Winds
can make a seemingly safe ?re burn more intensely and escape

If a ?re does escape control, immediately contact the local
?re department. An escaped wild?re, even one burning in grass
or weeds, is dangerous. Violators of Ohio’s burning regulations
are subject to citations and ?nes. Residents should also check
Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) regulations
