Angel Payne, director of the Logan County Solid Waste District, told the group that Tom Erwin, former operations manager with the district, has resigned his position to take a job with CSX Railroad in Marysville.

Ms. Payne said the solid waste district intends to, “re-evaluate the job description” as it looks to post a job opening.

A part-time customer service assistant will likely be hired by the end of the month, Ms. Payne said. Job duties will include clerical work and handling phone calls, she said.

Ms. Payne said opening solid waste district’s 16th recycling center at the Indian Lake State Park has been pushed back to April 22, to correspond with Earth Day.

The project has experienced several weather-related delays, according to Ms. Payne, adding the site on the north side of Indian Lake has frozen over and twice flooded.

Friday’s program was presented by Dr. Kate Benson, of Spinal Health and Wellness of Marysville, who discussed the impact of proper spinal alignment on an individual’s health.

“Americans today are taking more pills than ever and are more unhealthy than ever,” Ms. Benson said, adding that a first step to improving health and wellness is proper spinal alignment.

Dr. Benson was among a team of doctors to accompany and work with the U.S. Olympic wrestling and judo teams at the London Olympics.
