Since 2005, the City of Oregon had shown interest in purchasing the 15-acre Tschann property for a passive park.
Instead, George and Carrie Tschann are donating the land to Kateri Catholic Academy and Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School.
For generations it was the hub of a working farm.
In the future, its beams will frame a new structure in Vermont.
The dismantling of a 130-year-old barn on Lemoyne Road in Northwood was completed earlier this month, says Jim Intagliata, who purchased the property in June.
A recently completed agreement between the Benton-Carroll-Salem school board and the union representing the district’s teachers will save the district about $300,000, according to Rick Bast, board president.
The new contract includes a roll-back of 2.5 percent on the teachers’ base salary and increases the teachers’ insurance contribution to 15 percent.
Oregon City Council last Monday approved a three-year collective bargaining agreement with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 755.
The agreement states that there are no wage increases for the first year, and a reopener on wages in the second and third year.
New sheriff sets administrative staff
The sheriff said Hickman, who has more than 30 years of law enforcement experience, is an asset to the community and department and is able to work “with the public as well as the sheriff’s office staff.”
