Sea Cadets provides military training for students
If a parent knew there was an organization out there that could help young people develop valuable skills, teach them discipline and help them to develop confidence, they'd probably want to learn more about it.
The U.S. Navy Sea Cadet Corps is that organization, and it's had a profound influence on five Woodmore High School students that are currently participating.

Oak Harbor poised to open a sewer system regulator
Officials in Oak Harbor are taking a stride in the effort to fix a major problem with the sewer system and related flooding in residential areas.

Levy would avert deficit, treasurer says
Data compiled by the administration of the Genoa Area Local School District indicate the school system faces a deficit of about $100,000 by the end of the 2016 fiscal year on June 30, 2016 without additional spending cuts or revenues.
Bill Nye, district treasurer, said the school system’s five-year financial forecast shows a negative cash balance by then largely due to a drop in state revenues and stagnant property taxes even though the district has reduced expenditures. The projected deficit climbs to about $1.2 million by the end of the 2017 fiscal year.
With more than $1.4 billion sitting in the Ohio Budget Stabilization Fund – also called the state’s rainy day fund – is it time for the state legislature to restore the cuts to revenues used by local governments for a host of services?
The Lake Township trustees think so. The board of trustees Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution asking Gov. John Kasich and two state legislators to push for the restoration of local government funds that were cut in recent state budgets.
The resolution notes that the township budget for roads has been depleted due to overtime for snow removal and related repairs.
