Food Drive

The Genoa-Hugo High School Student Council is sponsoring a Food Drive to help with the Lincoln County Department of Human Service’s Holiday Basket Program, which will run through Nov. 25, 2014.

The program helps families in need around our community with food for the holidays. Any non-perishable food items would be greatly appreciated. There will be boxes in front of the office at Genoa-Hugo School through Nov. 25, 2014. Class competitions will also take place to see which classes can collect the most non-perishable food items, with awards for the winning classes in the Elementary, Middle School and High School.

Student Council members will also be at the Middle School basketball tournament/craft show on Nov. 15, 2014, collecting food items and holding a bake sale.

Donating two non-perishable items per person, the day of the basketball tournament, will get free admission to the games that day. If you have any questions contact Mrs. Markle at the school at 719-743-2428.

Commissioners approve Road Standards

By Will Bublitz

Lincoln County’s first-ever County Road Standards and Road Policy was approved by the county commissioners after a public meeting held last Thursday, Oct. 30.

In addition, the board approved an updated road map that shows the officially designated roads in Lincoln County. These roads include those that are designated as primary, secondary and minor secondary.

The new policy and updated map were developed by County Attorney Stan Kimble and Assessor Jeremiah Higgins in cooperation with the road foremen for the county’s three Road & Bridge Districts.
