        The Genoa school district is looking to increase funding for classroom technology with revenues from a 0.5-mill, 5-year levy on the Nov. 7 ballot.

        ‘Our hope is to beef up our Chromebook use and go one-to-one through the entire district,” said Michael Ferguson, district superintendent. “Right now we’re at two students to one Chromebook in the elementary and middle schools.”

        The Lake Township trustees Tuesday approved a fund transfer to help pay for the purchase of 6.7 acres that will be used to expand the township cemetery.

        The trustees approved an advance from the general fund of $40,000 to the cemetery fund. The advance will be repaid to the general fund in increments of $10,000 over the next four years.

        The second annual Northwood Fall Festival will be held in Central Park near Oram Drive on Saturday October 14.

        Over 50 vendors with food, beverages, and crafts will be on hand, as will as a DJ, exhibitors, a car show, a beekeeper, and a kids’ area.

        Beer and wine will also be available. Identification will be required.

        Oregon is looking at an amendment to the zoning code that gives police the authority to enforce a parking ban on unpaved portions of the front lawns of residentially zoned property.

        Currently, the zoning code prohibits parking of vehicles on unpaved areas of a front lawn.

        The code states that “No person shall park or stand, or leave unattended, or cause to leave parked or unattended, a vehicle, motorcycle, boat, recreational vehicle, or vehicle of any kind within a front yard except on paved or gravel surfaces on any residential property or vacant lot.”

        A 77-year-old man who allegedly discharged a firearm from his home on Saturday, Sept. 30,  in a standoff with police for over two hours was charged in Oregon Municipal Court last Monday.

        Robert Stinehart was charged with firing a firearm while intoxicated and discharging a firearm into an occupied habitat.

        Stinehart allegedly barricaded himself in his home on Bonnie Doone Dr.  when police arrived. A standoff with police lasted over two hours.
