This year, Sgt. Powell came back to Woodmore to spread the message of being street smart to seventh grade students. Powell shared the presentation with parents and community members as well.

In its Oct. 17 and Oct. 24 editions, The Press published its Voters’ Guide for the November 8 General Election that included candidate profiles in Northwood and Oregon. In the Oct. 24 edition of The Press, Oregon city council and school board candidates answered a series of questions posed by The Press regarding issues facing the community. The Voters’ Guide published seven of eight Oregon city council candidates’ answers to the questions. The answers of Mike Sheehy, an incumbent councilman who is also president of council, were accidentally omitted. The Press regrets the error. Here are Sheehy’s answers to the questions:

Oregon City Council will hold a public hearing at 8 p.m. on Nov. 18 in council chambers on Seaman Road on a request for a Special Use Permit for outside storage of car dealership vehicles at 2200 Woodville Road.

Although a final decision has not yet been made, Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian is focusing on Mike Navarre as the city’s next police chief.

Navarre recently retired as police chief in Toledo.
