Two weeks ago, a plane flew over State College, Pennsylvania carrying a banner reading “Take down the statue or we will.”
 
Less than a week later, the statue, a likeness of the late former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, came down.
 
James Miller, president of Genoa-based Air America Aerial Ads LLC, would like to believe it was taken down because of the banner. In reality, it was the president of Penn State University that made the decision to remove the statue.

Dr. Mike Zalar, superintendent of the Oregon City Schools District, has returned the raise he received last year.

Zalar, at a special board meeting on Wednesday, presented a resolution that rescinded the $11,000 pay hike, which had touched off a firestorm of controversy in the community when the board had approved it last summer.

Joseph Kiss, Jr., chairman of the Jerusalem Township Board of Trustees, was arrested for domestic violence on Friday, July 13, by the Lucas County Sheriff’s Department.

An officer responded to a call of a domestic dispute at 9:39 p.m. at the Kiss home at 710 Yondota Rd., Curtice, according to the Lucas County Sheriff’s report obtained by The Press.
