The biggest supporter of Genoa football — the Comet band

Instead of Genoa’s possible run to the state football playoffs, this


tilt refers to senior drummer Chance Champion, senior trumpeter Rian Nissen, highly-decorated senior drum majors Nikki Habel and Jim Posey, veteran director Briann "Mr. Ed" Edwards, and the 65 musicians who make up the Fighting Genoa Comets' Marching Band.

Edwards and assistant director and drum line major-domo Doug Asher agree this is one of the most memorable groups in Genoa band history.

Because as the post-season's weeks roll along, one can visibly see these marching Comets get just as jacked up for these playoffs as their brothers-in-arms wearing the helmets with the venerable, old "Gs."

The demand for low-cost spay/neuter in our region is great, especially in these tough economic times. In order to meet the demand and help more animals and pet parents, Humane Ohio has moved its non-profit, low-cost spay/neuter clinic to a new, larger facility with enough room for a second veterinarian to work. The addition of a second vet will allow the organization to go from spaying/neutering 8,700 animals a year to at least 14,000 annually

“Our mission is to reduce pet overpopulation by offering access to high-quality, affordable spay/neuter and our larger facility and additional staff veterinarian play a major role in our ability to do that,” says Lisa Hochradel, Humane Ohio Clinic director. “By offering low-cost spay/neuter to any pet parent in need, and regularly offering free transports to and from our clinic from various locations throughout the city, we can help animals and people in need and make sure there’s less homeless animals on the streets and at our local shelters and rescue groups.”
