Preliminary construction on the new elementary school building in Genoa has begun and the school board has authorized the administration to proceed with seeking bids for the next phase of the project.

“We’re getting down to the finite details of construction,” Bill Nye, district treasurer said Thursday.

The board Tuesday heard reports from a representative of Buehrer Group Architecture & Engineering, the project architect, and the construction manager for the Ohio School Facilities Commission.

Nye said the board gave its approval to seeking bid packages for plumbing, heating and air conditioning, electrical, food service, and fire protection systems.

To kick off the most wonderful time of the year, the Genoa Merchants will sponsor their Holiday Open House the weekend after Thanksgiving, Nov. 27, 28 and 29.

The special holiday event will offer the perfect occasion for family members and friends to get together, get a jump on their holiday shopping and maybe enjoy a leisurely lunch – one that doesn’t include turkey leftovers.

Some of the merchants will be offering specials, drawings and a chance to get away for some great shopping for unique gifts for the holidays.

Among the shops participating in the Holiday Open House is Packer Creek Pottery, where shoppers can find unique and colorful majolica pottery created by artist Jan Pugh. Among those who have purchased her pieces are Bill and Hillary Clinton, the Bush family, and the Queen of Jordon. Pugh specializes in handcrafted items in a wide variety of patterns and designs, including festive holiday patterns.

 
State’s deer-gun season opens next week

Ohio's popular deer-gun season opens statewide on Nov. 30, offering hunters a full week to harvest a whitetail. The upcoming season will again include an extra weekend of gun hunting on Dec. 19-20, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.

Deer can be hunted with a legal muzzleloader, handgun or shotgun from one half-hour before sunrise to sunset through Dec. 6 and Dec. 19-20. With a pre-hunting season population estimate of 650,000 white-tailed deer, the ODNR Division of Wildlife anticipates 115,000 to 125,000 deer will be killed during the nine-day season. Approximately 420,000 hunters are expected to participate in this year's season, including many out-of-state hunters.

The white-tailed deer is the most popular game animal in Ohio, frequently pursued by generations of hunters. Ohio ranks 8th nationally in annual hunting-related sales and 10th in the number of jobs associated with the hunting-related industry. Each year, hunting has an $859 million economic impact in Ohio through the sale of equipment, fuel, food, lodging and more.
