CITY OF GREEN

Green is taking the first step to rebuild its historic schoolhouse that was destroyed by arson last year.

The city council approved Akron-based architects Braun and Steidel to make a new design for the old schoolhouse, which was located in Boettler Park. The brick shell of the building will be the base of the new construction.

A local brewing company has created a commemorative beer to christen the tunnel boring machine being used on Akron's billion dollar sewer project.

The Thirsty Dog beer is called “Rosie Digs Akron", named after the machine.

Co-owner John Najeway says his company was chosen due to its prominence in the city.

Akron is giving residents a chance to own a piece of city history with the sale of bricks from the iconic B.F. Goodrich smokestacks. 350 bricks are available from a project earlier this year when the city lowered one of the smokestacks due to safety concerns.

City spokesperson Ellen Lander-Nischt says many residents asked the city if they could buy them.
