        Cardinal Stritch has created a new way for members of its family to stay connected.

        With a history extending back over 50 years and resulting in thousands of alumni, the high school has formed the Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School Alumni Association. All alumni who have received a diploma from Cardinal Stritch are members of the association.

          In the wake of a mass shooting at a high school in Florida last month, Oregon city officials stated at a council meeting last week that the city is prepared to deal with an active shooter should the need arise.

        “Obviously, with the events that happened in the Florida school shooting a few weeks ago, Oregon is very aware of those things,” City Administrator Mike Beazley told council at a meeting on Monday.

        “Everyone thinks it can’t happen here, and it won‘t. But being prepared is a good thing,” said Beazley. “In Oregon, we’ve done a lot of active shooter drills. We do take those things seriously, and do our part to be prepared.”

        A public forum on safety in the schools drew a packed crowd consisting of students, parents, school officials and police at Clay High School on Monday.

        The meeting was held to address security concerns in the Oregon City Schools District in the wake of a mass shooting at a high school in Florida last month. Similar meetings have been held across the country to answer questions from worried students and parents.

       The Wood County Planning Commission has scheduled a public forum for next month to hear project proposals eligible for funding from the Community Development Block Grant program.

        The forum will be held March 7 at 6 p.m. in the Wood County commissioners meeting room at One Courthouse Square in Bowling Green.

        More personnel for the Emergency Medical Services unit in Lake Township have been hired, bringing the township closer to meeting the goal of having the unit operating in the first quarter of the year.
