The Woodmore school board and administration plan to devote much of a forum Monday night to explaining the district’s financial status to residents and to listen to the concerns residents have about district operations, says John Fernbaugh, superintendent.
 
The forum will be held Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. in the gym of Woodmore Elementary School.
 
“We want to show our people the status of Woodmore schools, particularly the financials and what we’re facing and what’s driving our costs,” Fernbaugh said. “We want to clear up any misconceptions.”

Oregon Police Chief Richard Stager bid city officials goodbye at a council meeting on Jan. 24.
 
“I’m going to make the most out of retirement,” said Stager.
 
“Since I took the job, I probably have more passion for the Oregon Police Department than ever before. It’s kind of tough walking away. But I think I’ll manage somehow,” Stager joked. “I’m leaving Friday for Florida for my condo, and hopefully on Monday I’m playing in a softball game. I’ll be thinking about the officers and praying for their safety.”
 
Stager expressed concerns about the recent spate of violence against police officers across the country.
 
“If you’ve heard in the last 30 hours, seven police officers have been shot. It just seems like I’m hearing about it all the time. Even in communities about the same size as Oregon. I have a son who is a police officer in Sylvania, so I’ll be praying for him, too. I do have some concerns. Times have changed somewhat. There seems to be more violence toward police officers. Hopefully, that will stop in the immediate future when the economy gets better.”

 
Wrestling moms promote prostate cancer fundraiser

Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men.
 
The estimates for prostate cancer in the United States for 2010 is about 217,713 new cases will be diagnosed and about 32,050 men will die from prostate cancer. About one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Prostate cancer accounts for approximately 11 percent of cancer-related deaths in men.
 
Seeing those statistics, a group of Eastwood High School “wrestling moms” looked at their own sons and the coaching staff, and decided that because wrestling is a male-dominated sport, they saw the potential in holding a fundraiser to raise awareness for prostate cancer at the 10-team Claire Simpson Eastwood Duals on February 5.
 
The “Pin to Win Against Cancer” fundraiser will include the selling of t-shirts, a silent auction, a bake sale and possibly sticker sale, multiple 50/50 raffles throughout the day, and the sale of paper “pins” to put on the team’s memory wall. All proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society.

The “wrestling moms” saw fundraisers being done by basketball, volleyball, and soccer teams for cancer awareness, so they wanted to get in on the action.
