 The State Fire Marshal’s Fire and Explosion Investigation Bureau has determined a fire that damaged an historic building Thursday on Washington Street in the Village of Genoa was intentionally set.

 The fire occurred around 4:30 p.m. on June 8 and damaged a 125-year-old former trolley station that was part of the Interurban Railway System.

 A resolution opposing the disposal of waste from a former Brush Berylium site near Luckey into the Waste Management Evergreen landfill is being considered by Walbridge village council.

 Council on Wednesday heard the first reading of the resolution, which says the disposal will cause an environmental concern for village residents, and Mayor Ed Kolanko said he expects it to pass unanimously during council’s next meeting.

If the Rev. Henry Park has his way, a former school building at 200 E. Union St. in the Village of Walbridge will be a hub of activity this fall.

 A senior pastor with Antioch World Mission Council, Inc., Park’s plans for the property include a children’s day care center, a café, as well as programs featuring Christian music and art and other ecumenical activities.

 The Woodmore school board Tuesday approved the purchase of Chromebooks and iPads as part of the district’s 1:1 Technology Initiative to provide students greater access to Internet resources.  The board also approved a five-year contract with the Northern Ohio Educational Computer Association that will double the current bandwidth at the high school, said Mike Byrd, technology director.

 Pending approval from the state, Standard Wellness Co. will be able to start construction of a facility to grow medical marijuana in the Village of Gibsonburg.

 Mayor Steve Fought said village council has approved an ordinance authorizing the sale of property at Clearview Industrial Park to the company where the marijuana will be cultivated.  A public meeting to answer questions from residents was held Wednesday at Gibsonburg High School.
