P.J. Kapfhammer, president of the school board, said the OCTC has not yet been officially closed.

An escaped cow-vict jumped an electric hotline fence and escaped its pasture nearly two weeks ago and is still at large.

Joe and Anne Zielinski stated, in an email to The Press, that the all-black cow, which stands four-feet high and weighs about 400 pounds, was last seen Sunday evening, July 29 fleeing the pasture at the corner of Billman and Moline-Martin roads. The Zielinskis tried to corral the cow but she eluded them, seeking cover in a corn field, then jumping onto the railroad tracks and fleeing east towards Clay Center.

Donna Hayes got her due recognition from Genoa Village Council last week.

The family of the former longtime tax and billing clerk who died more than two years ago was presented with a plague in her honor at Monday’s council meeting.

After only a year on Genoa Village Council, Brian Best has resigned his seat.

Best informed his peers Monday at the first regular council meeting of the month that it would be his last meeting. His official last day was Aug. 13.

Members of the Lake school board haven’t decided whether to file a complaint about what they describe as “irregularities” at a precinct polling location during the special election Tuesday.

Board president Tim Krugh said Wednesday he believes there was an attempt to “discourage some pretty supportive voters” of the district but the board would address the matter later.
