The Fair Housing Center (FHC) is promoting a relatively new state program that helps people who are struggling to pay their mortgages.

The FHA is a HUD certified counseling agency under the Ohio Housing Finance Agency.

Dr. Mike Zalar, superintendent of Oregon City Schools District, has applied for the position of superintendent for the Gahanna-Jefferson Schools District, in Gahanna, Ohio, near Columbus.

The Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools, according to the district’s website, “is seeking an experienced administrator who embraces the challenge of leading an already excellent district to the next level while working collaboratively with the board, the community, the staff and students.”

An unexpected trio of volunteers has stepped up to help organize the farmer’s market in Genoa.

Genoa High School agricultural teacher Dave Stacklin along with students Rachel Weber and Madison Sheahan have offered to run the farmer’s market on behalf of the village this year.

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.
