During spring break, many high school students were stuck inside watching the rain, while Woodmore faculty member Erin Reynolds enjoyed herself in Australia.

Reynolds, who teaches students with special needs, went to Australia to visit her friend Jamie Bannear, who was a foreign exchange student from Australia that Reynolds met in high school.

A Pemberville Road man has filed a complaint in Wood County Common Pleas Court against Mark Hummer, the Lake Township police chief, and Paul Dobson, county prosecutor, alleging the chief illegally removed the man’s granddaughter from his home.

Dan Prewitt, who filed the complaint Monday, alleges the chief – at the direction of Dobson – violated his Fourth Amendment rights when he “unlawfully forced his way” into Prewitt’s residence on Jan. 13 and removed the girl.

Prewitt is asking for a jury trial and $300,000 in damages each from Dobson and Hummer.

Genoa school officials are working to convince voters of the need for a 4.99-mill emergency levy for operating expenses on the May 6 ballot.

The new levy is expected to generate about $800,000 a year. For the owner of a home valued at $100,000 that’s about another $175 annually to help cover the costs of salaries and benefits, daily expenses, classroom materials and transportation.

It’s been nearly a decade since Genoa schools have asked for an operating levy, Superintendent Dennis Mock said.

A group of Genoa parents is stepping up a year-end recognition program in hopes of shining a brighter light on academic prowess.

State environmental officials, swayed by Oak Harbor’s plea for help, agreed to temporary regulation changes to relieve sewer system flooding while a long-term solution is sought.
