When a vehicle was stolen off the lot at the Wilhelm Chevrolet Buick GMC dealership in Jamestown on May 3, Rod Wilhelm and Tom Wilhelm said they thought it was just a one-time thing. After the fifth vehicle was stolen in six weeks, they know that is not the case. "We kept saying after the first or second one was taken 'they're done,'" Rod Wilhelm said. "But then they kept coming back. I haven't heard of any other dealers in town getting hit like this."
The city of Medina will receive a $3.5 million grant from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for water and sewer infrastructure improvements. The office of U.S. Sen.
