GRAFTON, Ohio - Pastor Tim Mayo said he will do all he can to help 21-year-old Jeremy Mohr and his family after an accident left Jeremy paralyzed from the neck down.
Mohr was severely injured and his girlfriend was killed after a tree fell on top of them while the young couple was attending an Indiana college.
Pastor Mayo said the family quickly established a website for Jeremy to pass along information and to accept donations for his recovery. Pastor Mayo followed-up on the effort by posting information on the Midview Baptist Church sign, posted along Royalton Road in Grafton.
Pastor Mayo contacted 5 On Your Side Troubleshooter Joe Pagonakis after the sign continued to be blocked from roadside view by sewer pipes sitting on church property. Mayo said he repeatedly contacted Lorain County officials about the problem, with no results.
Troubleshooter Joe Pagonakis took the case, contacted all parties involved with the sewer project and got the sewer pipes moved out of the way.
If you have problems with an on-going construction project, it's important that you contact the multiple agencies involved, and be persistent.
