Marketing firm doing big things in a small place
Written by Yaneek Smith

 If you drive down Main Street in Genoa, you will find the kinds of businesses you typically find in a small town: bars, restaurants, a doctor’s office, a law firm. But you will also find an establishment that seems out of place. Located across the street from The Bharmacy and adjacent to The Hour Glass Inn is a marketing firm known as Pearson & Pearson.

Places like Pearson & Pearson are not typically supposed to exist in Small Town, Ohio. A hip, refined marketing firm that markets alcoholic products, it’s run by young, savvy professionals. Normally, you’d think to find a place like this somewhere in a major city.

With just five employees, it’s a small company that’s big in stature and demeanor.

Pearson & Pearson, which has been in existence for just over a year, was founded by Brian Pearson. He’s a man with a vision, plain and simple. The 35-year old former Marine, who was born and raised in Genoa, is the embodiment of a true entrepreneur. His unconventional, “outside-the-box” style of thinking and way of doing things is what helps create a business environment where creative and interesting ideas are the norm. That, as well as the passion and hard work put forth by Pearson and his employees.

 
Wood County - Levy may not be collected

After reviewing the budget needs of the county’s departments, the Wood County Commissioners have decided to ask the county’s budget commission to forgo collecting millage for 2011 on a levy that funds the Child and Protective Services program.

Tim Brown, a county commissioner, said tax revenue projections indicate there are sufficient revenues to carry the Job and Family Services Department through 2011 without collecting the tax from property owners next year.

About $3.98 million would be generated next year by the levy.

“At a time when so many families have cut back at home, we feel that an actual tax cut will be helpful to many of our citizens,” he said. “We will make the formal request of the budget commission for their consideration within the next two weeks.”

Clay High School is closer to getting commercial wind turbines erected on campus now that the Oregon Planning Commission recommended granting the school district a special use permit to install two wind generators.

The Planning Commission on Oct. 19 voted 3-0 in favor of recommending the special use permit. The project now goes before Oregon City Council and the school board for approval.

City council will hold a public hearing on the matter on Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. The school board is expected to vote on the project at its Nov. 4 meeting.

The high school campus is located on the north side of Seaman Road, west of Stadium Road. One of the turbines will be located near the football stadium and one near the practice soccer field. Both will be over 250 feet in height.

The district plans to use wind generated energy to power the entire campus, including the high school, stadium, bus garage and administration building.
