The Oregon School Board last Tuesday picked six of 16 candidates to interview for the superintendent’s position.

A nine member screening committee will conduct interviews later this month, according to School Board Member Jeff Ziviski, who is one of four school board members on the committee.

The board gave considerable weight to local applicants, a quality that was given a high priority at a public forum that was recently held, said Ziviski.

“We want someone that is known to Oregon – who is either currently in the district, or has worked in the district at some point in their career,” he said.

Humane Ohio, a non-profit organization on Secor Road in Toledo, is offering to spay and neuter cats owned by East Toledoans for just $25 on July 2 to stem the rising tide of unwanted litters of kittens and homeless cats.

East Toledo residents have until June 25 to register and reserve a spot on Humane Ohio’s transport van, which will pick up their cats on Wednesday, July 2 at 7:30 a.m. and return Thursday, July 3 at 7:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the East Toledo Family Center, 1020 Varland Ave. To register, contact Humane Ohio at 419-266-5607. Residents must show proof they live in East Toledo to receive the discounted rate.

While Governor Ted Strickland reviews a capital budget bill that arrived in his office last week, Brent Welker feels as if he’s sitting on pins and needles.

Whether or not the governor approves an amendment to the budget bill could decide how two area school districts proceed with major construction projects that qualify for funding from the Ohio School Facilities Commission.

Oregon City Council on Monday will consider selling one year notes totaling $4,975,000 to fund various capital improvement projects.

Council at a committee of the whole meeting last Monday agreed to consider voting on the matter at a meeting the following Monday.

“We would borrow the notes in anticipation of a future bond issuance for these various projects,” said Administrator Ken Filipiak.

The Lake Township trustees Tuesday approved personnel changes for the police and fire departments.

On the recommendation of Chief Mark Hummer, the trustees approved the promotion of Adam Lorenzen to full-time status on the police department.

His promotion goes into effect July 7.

Officer Lorenzen began with the department as an auxiliary officer before being promoted to part-time status.
