LOS ANGELES — Mickey Rooney’s approach to life was simple: “Let’s put on a show!” He spent nine decades doing it, on the big screen, on television, on stage and in his extravagant personal life.

A superstar in his youth, Rooney was Hollywood’s top box-office draw in the late 1930s to early 1940s. He epitomized the “show” part of show business, even if the business end sometimes failed him amid money troubles and a seesaw of career tailspins and revivals.

SPENCERVILLE — Mayor P. J. Johnson read Village Administrator Sean Chapman’s report which contained some very good news for the village when he announced that the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) has approved the new Water Treatment Plant (WTP) design on Monday night.

“Sean had a meeting with Richard Kirk of Kirk Bros. (KBC) and Todd Jenkins (Peterman Associates) recently to discuss updates on the status of the WTP project,” Johnson said.

The new WTP building has been constructed and KBC plans to be back on site and begin footer/foundation work on the 17 of April.

Johnson said a Purchase Order has been issued to Buschur Electric by KBC for all of the electrical components and all state permits have been submitted and approval is expected within two weeks. In addition, Industrial Fluid Management (IFM) will deliver treatment process equipment in May.
