Some on Oregon council Monday praised the city’s One Call Now system for alerting the public to flash floods following a heavy rain storm on Monday.

One Call Now, an emergency notification system that the city contracted with two years ago, had annoyed some residents last August with repeated automated phone calls, many of which were for weather watches rather than warnings.

 In an article that appeared in The Press last week on the election results of Oregon city council, it should have said Councilman Terry Reeves won re-election with a total of 3,916 votes. The Press regrets the error.

In the movie “Saving Private Ryan,” WWII American troops putting their lives on the line to seek Private James Francis Ryan sarcastically comment that he had better invent a better light bulb someday, or their effort is not worth it.

Well, somebody is.

New packing requirements in the U.S. will change the way people refer to light bulbs.

For the first time, the label on the front of the package will emphasize the bulb’s brightness as measured in lumens, rather than a measurement of watts. Instead of buying a “72 watt light bulb,” people will now purchase a “1,500 lumens light bulb” or a “2500 lumens light bulb.”

Oregon City Administrator Michael J. Beazley says Lucas County sales tax revenue is up seven percent and Oregon’s income tax revenue collections are up five percent from last year.

Beazley says that demonstrates that the local economy is showing signs of recovery, but still has a ways to go to meet levels from just a few years back.
