        Beer and wine will also be available. Identification will be required.

        Oregon is looking at an amendment to the zoning code that gives police the authority to enforce a parking ban on unpaved portions of the front lawns of residentially zoned property.

        Currently, the zoning code prohibits parking of vehicles on unpaved areas of a front lawn.

        The code states that “No person shall park or stand, or leave unattended, or cause to leave parked or unattended, a vehicle, motorcycle, boat, recreational vehicle, or vehicle of any kind within a front yard except on paved or gravel surfaces on any residential property or vacant lot.”

        A 77-year-old man who allegedly discharged a firearm from his home on Saturday, Sept. 30,  in a standoff with police for over two hours was charged in Oregon Municipal Court last Monday.

        Robert Stinehart was charged with firing a firearm while intoxicated and discharging a firearm into an occupied habitat.

        Stinehart allegedly barricaded himself in his home on Bonnie Doone Dr.  when police arrived. A standoff with police lasted over two hours.    

        Oregon City Council will hold public hearings on two zoning applications on Oct. 23 at 8 p.m. in council chambers.

        The Oregon Republican Club is sponsoring a forum for candidates vying for seats on the Jerusalem Township Board of Trustees in the November election.
