Registration for the popular and historical 2016 National Trophy Pistol and Rifle Matches began April 1 – fired at Camp Perry, six miles west of Port Clinton, during the months of July and August.

The 2016 Match Schedule will be different from the 2014-2015 National Matches – returning to the original schedule of years past. Events featured will include the John C. Garand, President’s Rifle, Hearst Doubles, Vintage Sniper, as well as a multitude of prestigious pistol events. This year also marks the 20th Anniversary of the CMP, so come help us celebrate!

New this year, the CMP will introduce its Legacy Series: an extra week highlighting an assortment of competitions that feature both vintage and modern military rifles. Each event has been named to honor the memories of important figures in marksmanship history, as well as to commemorate the spirit of past and present National Matches.

Oregon City Council on Monday voted 5-2 against passing a curfew for minors following a lengthy discussion.

Members of the Oregon Block Watch Group met with city officials twice in the past to advocate the need for the curfew. Supporters wanted the measure to go before council for a vote. Many were at the meeting on Monday.

Councilwoman Sandy Bihn, who met with neighborhood groups while she campaigned for a seat on city council last year, has been in support of a curfew.

“A lot of big cities have them. The whole state of Michigan has a curfew,” she said. “So obviously, some governmental entities feel this is helpful. In the case here, people have been asking for this for a long time because there have been issues in their neighborhoods late at night.”

Just when officials in the Village of Woodville thought the town gained a little breathing room financially after voters approved additional millage for the general fund, another sizable expense looms not on the horizon but right on Main Street.

Representatives of the Ohio Department of Transportation were in town recently to discuss the condition of the street, part of State Route 20, with the village administration. What they saw wasn’t encouraging.

“It’s in bad shape,” Mayor Richard Harman said. “There are big holes, four or five inches deep. The state wants us to maintain that but there is no way we can do Main Street. We had a meeting with them and hopefully they’ll come back with some kind of assistance.”
