SR 350 project extended

A culvert replacement project that is under way on State Route 350 will be extended as a result of this week’s inclement weather, ODOT announced Tuesday.

SR 350 is closed between SR 730 and Township Road 253 (Yankee Road) for crews to replace a culvert at the 4.87-mile marker, and the closure will remain in place through Wednesday, May 27, due to continuing weather-related impacts.

While the route remains closed, motorists will be detoured by way of US 68 and SR 730.

Blan officer adopts bunnies

The Blanchester Police Department reports that, over the past few days, they received numerous phone calls from people wanting to help care for, or to adopt, the orphan lop-eared rabbits found on Friday morning.

No one has come forward to say that the rabbits belong to them. That being the case, Ptl. Kristen Jeffers has decided to adopt the rabbits and has procured a hutch and other supplies for their care, said Police Chief Scott Reinbolt. They will reside with the Jeffers family.
