 in the maritime industry.

“I would love nothing more than to just be out on the water for weeks at a time and just be out on a boat. It’s just calming for me to be out on the water,” said Paul.

Paul lives in Oregon with his parents Paul II and Julie Cox. Like his older brother and younger sister, Paul III was home-schooled — until last year.

After looking into parochial and public schools, Paul and his family began researching charter high schools. Paul decided he wanted to attend The Maritime Academy of Toledo, a grade 5-12 nautical themed public school located on Water Street adjacent to the Maumee River near downtown.

Paul enrolled into the academy’s eighth grade class one year ago, and like other students there, he is referred to as a “cadet.”

Students can graduate with a high school diploma and earn a two-year college degree at the same time. Now that he is a freshman at TMAT, Paul is also taking post-secondary classes at Lourdes College.

 
Genoa expects to begin streets project

Village council is expected to approve a contractor Monday for its 2010 streets repaving project.

Genoa Village Council will review the hiring ordinance once village staff, including Village Administrator Garth Reynolds, speaks to the contractor. They were expected to do so last Thursday.

Four bids were opened and one contractor was the low bidder, coming in around $102,000, Reynolds said. The engineer’s estimate was $109,500.

Reynolds, in a telephone interview Wednesday afternoon, would not name the contractor until his administrative team had a chance to talk to the principals of the company.

“They are relatively new to this,” Reynolds said of repaving work. “What they primarily were before was a sealing company. We just want to sit down and talk and make sure we are all on the same page regarding what needs to be done.”

The project involves six streets across the western Ottawa County village and an alley.

An Elmore man faces five counts of felony charges after being arrested last week for offenses stemming from involving a minor in sexually oriented material.

Shaun Harder, 24, 19089 W. State Route 51, was arrested by Ottawa County sheriff’s deputies Tuesday afternoon after being indicted by a county grand jury.

Law enforcement officials said the indictment comes after a nine-month investigation into allegations Harder engaged in “inappropriate overtures” to a minor by sending pornographic and explicit material to the alleged victim by computer and text messages.

Harder, who was fired in March from the Elmore Police Department, faces charges of:

• Two counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material or performance. A second degree felony.

• Two counts of disseminating matter harmful to a juvenile. A fifth degree felony.

• Tampering with evidence. A fifth degree felony.
