Genoa organizing Block Watch program
Pleased with how an organizational meeting went for a Block Watch program, Genoa Police Chief Bob Bratton is scheduling another meeting for May 3.

The meeting is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at Fire Station 3 of the Allen-Clay Joint Fire District on Sixth Street in Genoa.

P.J. Kapfhammer, elected to the Oregon City Schools Board last November, denied making a threatening comment to school board member Diana Gadus at a policy meeting in the conference room of the administration building at approximately 4:30 p.m. on February 16.

Gadus filed an incident report with the school administration on Feb. 22 about the heated meeting.

After two days of screening and registering prospective kindergarten students for the 2012-13 school year, Dolores Swineford, principal of Walbridge Elementary School, said parents appear to have accepted the decision by the Lake school board to reduce the kindergarten program to all-day, every other day.

A few parents asked if a “full-time” program would be reinstated if a levy is approved this year but no one raised questions about the efficacy of an all-day, every other day program, Swineford said.

Shawn Cantos has come a long way to reach this point.

Contos, who currently serves as the Penn State University wrestling team’s strength and conditioning coach, competed this weekend at the Olympic Trials in Iowa City, Iowa. Contos will wrestle in the freestyle division at 121 pounds (55 kilograms).

 

Contos has not stopped wrestling. He was fourth in the 2011 Freestyle Olympic Trials Qualifier, which is what got him here. He was second in the 2003 New York AC International. During his youth, he was a junior nationals champion.

Not only was bullying existent in the halls of North Shore High School in the movie Mean Girls, it is also happening right here at Woodmore High School.

In a poll given to grades seven through 12, it was revealed that the strongest form of bullying is no longer name calling in the hallways. This day and age, kids are using texting and other forms of media to bully fellow students. Out of 336 Woodmore students surveyed, 177 said they have used texting to bully another person. That’s over 50 percent of the people surveyed.
