Patrols by the Ottawa County K-9 unit and officers in unmarked cars will be used by Genoa police this summer to foil vandalism at Veterans Park.

Police Chief Bob Bratton outlined a list of new ideas for heightened security at Genoa’s main park during a recent village council meeting.

“We put a program together. The whole thing will be based on the element of surprise. We’re going to have officers in plain clothes at night, some in unmarked cars and we’ll be bringing in the county K-9 unit at times,” Bratton said in a telephone interview.

Maumee Indoor Theatre, Fremont Paramount, and Virginia Clark Theatre in North Baltimore will be among the first to offer viewings of “Gibsonburg,” a movie about the 2005 Division IV state championship baseball team.

The movie is based on the true story of the Gibsonburg High School baseball team that finished the regular season 6-17, and then went on to win eight straight tournament games and a state title to finish 14-17 under first-year coach Kyle Rase.

They were the first, and still the only, baseball team in Ohio history to win a state championship with a record under .500. The movie, starring Louis Bonafante and Lili Reinhart, has even more drama in it.

With a little luck, a section of a Harris Township road now closed because of river erosion will be open in July.

Motorists haven’t been able to travel the stretch of Portage River South Road, between Schultz-Portage Road and Linker-Portage Road, for a little more than a year now, Ottawa County Engineer Dave Brunkhorst said.

The 1,200 to 1,500-foot section must be moved south about 25 to 30 feet to remedy the situation.
