The Civilian Marksmanship Program’s Garand-Springfield-Military Master Instructor Courses will be held at Camp Perry on Jan. 27-29, 2017 and again on July 14, 2017 during the national matches.

Currently, there are 485 certified instructors across the nation, but more are always encouraged to join the effort of spreading marksmanship technique and safety.

The CMP Master Instructor certification program teaches individuals how to instruct new marksmen in range procedures, vintage military rifle operation, equipment use, firing techniques, shooting positions, safety and match procedures for the popular CMP Garand, Springfield and Military (vintage and modern) rifle courses of fire. These instructors will be trained to run Rimfire Sporter rifle clinics and matches as well.

With dates recently becoming available in the opening week of Camp Perry’s National Matches schedule, June 26-30, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) will lead off the competitions with CMP Service Rifle and CMP Match Rifle events, called the CMP Cup Matches. Match rifle competitors may participate in the new matches and compete straight up with their peers.

The CMP Cup series of individual and team service and match rifle events includes a 50-shot CMP Four-Man Team Match, three days of 80-shot CMP 800 Aggregate Matches, which may be fired singly or all three culminating in a 2,400-point aggregate and wrapping up with a 50-shot CMP Excellence-in-Competition (EIC) Service Rifle Match.

The Oregon Board of Education on Tuesday voted 3-0 for a three-year contract with the Oregon City Federation of Teachers (OCFT), which represents the district’s 260 teachers.

Board members Keith Kennedy, Heather Miller, and board president Carol Ann Molnar were in favor of the agreement. Board members Jeff Ziviski and Michael Csehi were not in attendance.

Members of the OCFT ratified the agreement on December 19. The district had been negotiating with the teachers’ union since March. Their previous contract had expired on July 31.

For the last 44 years, John Free II has owned and operated Freeway restaurant on Navarre Avenue, but the diner has been in his family for six decades.

They say nine of out of 10 restaurants will go out of business in their first year, or thereabouts, but Freeway has become virtually a landmark off, where else, the freeway — Interstate 280. It can easily be reached from Oregon’s State Route 2 exit — five minutes from downtown Toledo and 10 minutes from the Ohio Turnpike.

In the nearly 60 years that the restaurant has been open, Free will be the first to admit his restaurant has undergone considerable changes. 

U.S. Representatives Debbie Dingell (MI-12) and Marcy Kaptur (OH-09) sent a letter to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy urging EPA to list the open waters of Lake Erie's Western Basin as impaired under the terms of the Clean Water Act.

This was backed up last week when a coalition of fishing boat captains, Lake Erie businesses, environmental and conservation advocates, and sportsmen groups said they are threatening to sue the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency because of the agency’s “failure to abide by its obligations under the Clean Water Act.”
