Hundreds of students in Genoa schools will have at least one soldier in mind when they bring food and supplies to Friday night’s  (Sept.  28)  football game against Otsego.

Austin Dickinson, a Genoa High School graduate, is stationed in Qatar for a year’s tour as a member of the Military Police Unit in Toledo. He and his peers are miles away from home embroiled in a sea of unrest in an effort to preserve national security.

The Oregon Police Department may soon have its own K-9 unit to assist in the apprehension of criminals.

“About a year ago, the concept of having a police dog, which has come up probably many times over the last 20 years, was looked at very seriously,” Mayor Mike Seferian said at a Sept. 17 committee of the whole meeting.

The Great Lakes Historical Society and the City of Toledo on Monday broke ground for the new National Museum of the Great Lakes at a ceremony on Toledo’s eastern riverfront.

Toledo’s newest museum is currently slated to open during the summer of 2013.

A 900 kilowatt wind turbine at Clay High School that was shut down in May will be up and running next week.

FirstEnergy Toledo Edison shut down the turbine, which had been installed in the spring, because a Direct Transfer Trip Switch was never installed. The cost to install the safety measure was estimated at $200,000, which SUREEnergy, the general project contractor for the turbine, could not cover.

The Oregon school board on Tuesday approved an agreement with InfoSnap to provide online student registration to parents.

Currently, parents register at the schools.

“It’s hectic,” said Board President P.J. Kapfhammer. “It takes each school days to process and try and get it done. It’s a joke, really. We spend thousands of dollars on paper and postage and processing. It’s almost impossible to track costs because it’s so diversified. This will have a streamline effect and will save the district money.”
