Eagle to be taken off CASH building
Written by David Schaef

The large size Eagle recently put up on the front of the Conneaut Area Senior High School will be taken down soon as Conneaut school directors decided in a 6-3 vote last Wednesday evening at their meeting at Conneaut Lake Middle School.

Conneaut Schools Superintendent Jarrin Sperry said he had worked with athletic director John Acklin and had approved having the Eagle put up on the barren cement block portion fronting the building.

He thought the Eagle, provided by Roche Graphics, was an extension of the Eagle head adopted two years back as the official trademark and mascot for the school.

School lawyer George Joseph said it was not and thus needed approval.

That Eagle could also be trademarked/copyrighted which Roche Graphics, the Community News learned, was willing to grant free of charge for Conneaut use.

Linesville holding on Pachuk building issue
Written by David Schaef

No more action on a proposed tearing down of the Pachuk Building in downtown Linesville is anticipated until the yearly tax sale is done by the county on September 26, members of borough council noted when the council met in September session last Tuesday evening.

The pending tax sale is putting a hold on action as the council waits to see if a purchaser steps forward or not, if not the building remains in the Pachuk name. The sale, if the building is purchased, would have to cover various payment for taxes, etc.

Linesville businessman Brian Bair [Bair’s Corvettes] was in attendance at the meeting and raised questions about council’s intentions/plans for the building with council president Mike Heaney saying tearing down the building was one of the conversations council has had. Bair wanted to know about the cost of borrowing money for the tear down, the interest, and a sheriff’s sale.

Bair said he had heard the taxes might be raised 4.5 mills to cover the cost of tearing down the building and suggested that would be something those on fixed incomes could not afford. He said he did not want to see tax money used.
