Site plans for new school on agenda
Written by Press Staff Writer

The Genoa school board is scheduled to open bids this week for preliminary work on the site where a new elementary school will be constructed.

Board members plan to meet Oct. 9 at 1 p.m. to open the bids for what is called an “early site package” that covers grading, drainage, extending utilities to the site, and related issues, said Bill Nye, district treasurer.

The board and administration held a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new school on Sept. 16.

Voters in November approved a 1.9-mill, 28-year bond issue that will be used to fund the local share of construction costs for the new school as well as renovations to the high school building.

The bond issue is expected to generate about $5.2 million for the project while the Ohio School Facilities Commission will provide funding for the balance of the costs.

 
Oregon schools address concerns of swine flu

The Oregon City Schools District is urging parents and students to follow simple procedures in trying to prevent, and treat swine flu, just as they would any flu.

Two students at Fassett Middle School, a sixth grader and eighth grader, are the first confirmed cases of swine flu in the district.

Superintendent Dr. Mike Zalar said a parent of one of the students with the virus contacted the administration on Sept. 18 to disclose the illness.

He’s fielded “quite a few calls” from parents since then.

“The majority of the community is reasonable and understands,” he said. “We try to address those concerns and reassure them our buildings are clean and safe. If their kids are not sick, they should be sending them to school.”

 
Oregon’s little secret is quickly becoming not so secret

For many of us, it is a special, private thrill when we find that little out-of-the-way place to mingle and dine. You know the one – not real impressive from the outside but once inside, you know it is a real find.

For those in the know, BJ’s Hide-A-Way, located at 506 Lallendorf Rd., in Oregon, is just that kind of place. Non-descript on the outside, cozy and comfy on the inside.

And the food…

“We opened on Feb. 2 and I would say that we have about 100 people that I would call regulars here,” BJ Lawson, owner, said. “You know, regulars who come here once, twice a week. We have everyone here from John Mancy, owner of Mancy’s Steakhouse, to doctors, lawyers, office and factory workers and even Marge Brown and Mike Seferian. It has become a very popular restaurant here.”

The tiny restaurant holds a little over 50 diners and on many nights, Lawson said people have had to be turned away.
