The $11.2 million Wales Road overpass project, which began in May, is starting to take shape.

Residents are noticing mounds of dirt on Wales that will serve as the embankment of the overpasses or “bridges.”

“Three of the hills are already done. I think they’re probably at the final height. They got the dirt there,” said Northwood Mayor Mark Stoner.

It may have been a small thing, but to the members of Oregon City Council, Mayor Mike Seferian and Police Chief Mike Navarre, what young Elijah Meade, 11, did on Sept. 4 deserved recognition.

During its Sept. 10 meeting, council applauded the quick thinking of Elijah, a fifth-grade student at Starr Elementary School.

Robert Anderson, Northwood’s new administrator, is happy to be back home in northwest Ohio.

Anderson, who has held the position of administrator in Columbus, Georgia, Marion South Carolina and, most recently, East Jordan, Michigan, is from the area. He graduated from St. Francis de Sales high School and Ohio State University.

Last summer, Ron Overmyer ventured as a volunteer to the Kasese District in Uganda where he assisted maize growers on subsistence farms.

This year, he was back in Africa to work with the Agricultural College of the Catholic University of Mozambique where he helped prepare a feasibility study for developing 750 acres into a commercial farm operation.

Oregon City Council on Monday approved an agreement with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for funding from the Federal Highway Administration (FHA) for the bid and construction of LUC-Stadium Road Bike Path – Phase 2.

It will mark the last section of bikeway between Pearson Metropark and Maumee Bay State Park, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman.
