Jeff Carpenter, treasurer of the Lake Local School District, describes a recent annual meeting of Ohio School Business Officials in Columbus as a “tale of woe.”

“Everything geared around the loss of funding,” he said last week.

The Lake school board has agreed to again seek more local revenues, voting April 18 to place a 6.75-mill, 3-year operating levy on the August ballot.

The water tower at the edge of the village of Genoa is in need of repairs that could cost up to $30,000.

“They found some rust spots, nothing major, but they need to be taken care of to prevent further rusting,” said Genoa Village Administrator Kevin Gladden.

Genoa organizing Block Watch program
Pleased with how an organizational meeting went for a Block Watch program, Genoa Police Chief Bob Bratton is scheduling another meeting for May 3.

The meeting is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at Fire Station 3 of the Allen-Clay Joint Fire District on Sixth Street in Genoa.

P.J. Kapfhammer, elected to the Oregon City Schools Board last November, denied making a threatening comment to school board member Diana Gadus at a policy meeting in the conference room of the administration building at approximately 4:30 p.m. on February 16.

Gadus filed an incident report with the school administration on Feb. 22 about the heated meeting.

After two days of screening and registering prospective kindergarten students for the 2012-13 school year, Dolores Swineford, principal of Walbridge Elementary School, said parents appear to have accepted the decision by the Lake school board to reduce the kindergarten program to all-day, every other day.

A few parents asked if a “full-time” program would be reinstated if a levy is approved this year but no one raised questions about the efficacy of an all-day, every other day program, Swineford said.
