Joe Kane, of East Toledo, was crowned the Super Searcher” in Metroparks of the Toledo Area’s Great Park Search (GPS) contest.

Contest participants followed weekly clues – given in the form of GPS coordinates – to find 69 “hidden” locations throughout the park system.

Oregon City Council, after months of discussion, finally ordered sidewalks along a section of Navarre Avenue between Coy and Lallendorf roads to improve safety.
