Kelly J. Kaczala, news editor at The Press Newspapers, and Melissa A. Burden, freelance reporter, last week won an Excellence in Journalism award from The Press Club of Toledo in the nondaily category for a story about a Northwood man who had stopped breathing on March 3 waiting 28 minutes for a rescue squad to arrive, despite three calls made by his wife to 9-1-1. He later died at a hospital after suffering brain damage from a lack of oxygen.

Judges called their reporting “the very essence of journalism.”

The award was presented at the 13th annual Touchstone Awards that honored community service and excellence in journalism on Oct. 6 at the Toledo Club.

Back in 2009 the Genoa football team decided that they wanted to show support for victims and survivors of breast cancer and draw attention to this disease during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

They did this by wearing pink gloves, armbands and athletic tape on their wrists and ankles. The team will continue this tradition Oct. 28 in their game against Eastwood at Comet Stadium.

Genoa village officials are working steadily to alleviate future flooding problems as the community enters the fourth phase of a six-phase sewer upgrade.

That’s the message village council recently offered two Buckeye Street residents who complained September rains caused some major problems.

With just weeks away from Election Day, a flier slinging mud at an Oregon School Board candidate is making the rounds.

The flier, distributed anonymously to the media and throughout the city, notes that P.J. Kapfhammer, one of three candidates vying for two board seats, has a criminal past.

Arraignment hearings are scheduled for Oct. 19 for two suspects in the robbery last week of the Millbury branch of Genoa Bank on State Route 51.

Steven Perales, 45, of Georgetown Drive, Oregon, and Heather Beasley, 24, who gave no address to authorities, have been charged in Ottawa County Municipal Court with aggravated robbery.
