Ice fishing season will be upon us just as soon as area lakes and farm ponds reach a safe ice thickness, and that means it'll be time to catch those first of the winter meals of bluegill and crappie fillets. Coming out of ice water they'll be unusually tasty. But after four or five trips for panfish, it can get a little dull. You know where they are and what they'll bite, and shortly you'll be looking around for something new and different. Rainbow trout are definitely new and different.

What is the function of the board of education? School board members are citizens whose decisions affect our children - what they learn, who will teach them, and what kinds of facilities are available in the district. A board of education is charged with the duty of managing the public schools within its jurisdiction. The Ohio Revised Code gives boards the authority to make rules and regulations as it deems necessary for the governance of the local schools. The board hires a superintendent and a treasurer. The superintendent is hired to administer the established rules and regulations. The board hires the treasurer to serve as the Chief Financial Officer, responsible for the prudent accountability of all money received and spent by the district. The board has the primary authority to exercise supervision and control for both academic and extracurricular activities. There are 723 school boards in the state of Ohio with more than 3,415 members.
