State regulations have forced the Village of Genoa to put off a badly needed upgrade to the Town Hall elevator for another year, the village administrator says.

Village leaders had planned to upgrade electronics, wiring and plumbing on the 1960s-era elevator this fall. It would have been the first major rehab on the decades-old system.

But state officials have weighed in the project, resulting in a markup of at least $35,000 in additional costs, said Administrator Kevin Gladden.

The Lake Township trustees Tuesday officially hired a new full-time fire chief, approving a resolution to pay Bruce Moritz $5,000 a month.

His contract, which went into effect Sept. 3, includes a one-year probationary period.

Mike Hornyak, who was the interim part-time chief, tendered his resignation to the trustees and was re-appointed deputy chief.

Church to dedicate memorial for young member lost at sea

After graduating from Clay High School in June 1943, 17-year-old Richard Dickey talked with his good friend Jack Heninger about how they might end up serving together in the regular Army, should they be drafted into service.

After turning 18, Richard, thought his chances might be better if he joined the U.S. Merchant Marine. Jack waited for a draft notice. On March 26, 1944 the 18-year-old Richard went to New York City and enlisted. He was assigned as a messman to the S.S. Pan Pennsylvania, a tanker owned by the U.S. Maritime Commission.

On April 15, with a cargo of 140,000 barrels of gasoline, the tanker left New York Harbor bound for the United Kingdom. The very next day, the Pan Pennsylvania was torpedoed by a German submarine U-550 in the North Atlantic, about 70 miles off the coast of Nantucket.
