Oregon City Council earlier this month authorized the mayor and finance director to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority to create a building improvement project designed to save energy and improve the environmental performance of city owned buildings.

The matter was discussed at a Drainage, Roads, Buildings, and Lands Committee meeting just before the council meeting on March 14.

Administrator Mike Beazley said the agreement “is an essential step for the city to get a better handle on the energy costs and consumption issues with our own buildings.”

 
Council ok’s hike in Otter Creek Rd. speed limit

Oregon City Council at a meeting on March 14 voted to increase the speed limit on Otter Creek Road to 45 mph from 35 mph.

“Raising the speed limit also raises the level of safety,” said Councilman James Seaman. “That’s something different than what most people think because of the way the road is wide open and so well paved. People have a  tendency to go faster than the 35 mph speed limit. I think this will move towards a safer environment for our drivers in Oregon.”

The road was reconstructed with new asphalt last year as part of an upgrade to the existing deteriorating concrete pavement.

 
Serum Run fits Genoa native’s lifestyle in Alaska

While you were shoveling snow from your driveway and dreaming of Florida or the Caribbean Islands, Evie Wakulenko was mushing through the middle of Alaska through white-outs and sub-zero temperatures.

And she was enjoying herself.

Wakulenko, a graduate of Genoa High School and Bowling Green State University, completed the Serum Run, which commemorates the efforts of sled-dog teams in 1925 that relayed diphtheria serum to residents of Nome, Alaska.

This year’s start in Nenana, Alaska began Feb. 20 and Wakulenko arrived in Nome – a distance of about 800 miles – on March 14.

“We were late four days due to weather in the beginning and a snow machine that wouldn’t start at 35 below in Tanana. The mushers really depend on the snowmachiners to haul the heavy gear between villages so we need them all,” she said.
