Dirt work and site preparation are moving along steadily at the new elementary school site off of Highway 65 near the high school. The next few weeks of the project will begin to show some of the building structure, visible to passersby. On March 28, contractors are scheduled to pour the slab at the building and by the end of April sections of the steel structure should be erected. Somewhere between April and May, work will begin on assembling the gymnasium. The work puts the school construction on schedule, according to the activities timeline determined last fall with the project expected to be completed by May 2018.

 A new airway beacon was erected at Chillicothe Municipal Airport, replacing one that dated back to 
1929-30. It is unknown at this time where the beacon originated, but it is known that it was in place atop this approximate 70-foot tower when the municipal airport was constructed in 1946. The new beacon is similar to the original one in that its illumination extends the same distance - approximately 50 miles on a clear night - and that it rotates with green and white lights, according to Airport Manager Bill Kieffer. The new beacon is more energy efficient and is about one-fourth the size of the first beacon.
