The mystery of a young girl abducted and living on a Genoa farm
Written by Lou Hebert

Genoa is a quiet village. Not much noise and not much big news. So rarely does it ever make national or world news. It has happened, but not often. The deadly tornado in 1920 and the sensational bank robbery nearly a century ago when a druggist was shot to death, are two of the town’s biggest stories. But, perhaps the biggest story that sent ripples beyond its village borders is one that few people today have read. It was a story so gripping that if it were to occur today, Genoa would likely have to endure a crush of TV crews and cameras all crowding each other to get the scoop. But, there were no TV cameras back in the mid-1800s, just newspapers, and while they did report this story, its notoriety has faded along with the ink of the old news print. The roots of this curious tale began to unfold in 1867 in Sandusky with the kidnapping of a three-year old girl named Marie Lilly Bowers.

The Lake Board of Education has adopted a plan to fund the cost of maintaining the turf at the stadium and all-weather track at the campus on Lemoyne Road for the next 10 years.

The board Wednesday approved the formation of a “turf and track fund” with the goal of minimizing the use of tax dollars, said Tim Krugh, board president.

Under the plan, volunteer organizations and the board will combine efforts to raise money for the facilities over the next 10 years.

Despite accusations, fire chief has trustees’ support

The Lake Township trustees Tuesday re-affirmed their support for Bruce Moritz, township fire chief, after hearing a resident say some members of the fire department contacted him to voice their concerns about how the chief runs the department.

Randy Saint John, of E. Freedom Drive, told the trustees eight firefighters contacted him via email with their grievances, saying they feared repercussions if they took their complaints to command officers and the trustees.
