A Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and money in a Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) will be used by Oregon to pay for sewer rehabilitation and drainage improvements.

Council approved the ordinance at a meeting on Monday.

The city has received $60,000 in CDBG funds for 2012.

The Oregon school board will consider expanding the number of bus or shuttle stops for Clay High School students for the 2012-2013 school year.

The shuttle, which currently makes 12 stops, will make another five if the board approves, according to Dean Sandwisch, director of business affairs for the district.

An on-going dispute over parking and access to a garage in a Lake Township neighborhood has resulted in the arrest of an 84-year-old township man.

Police on June 12 charged James A. Caswell, of Cramer Street, after he allegedly slapped the arm of a township police officer who’d been called to a Kearsley Street property where Caswell was involved in a dispute over vehicles parked in the driveway to a garage he uses.

There was a time when “lucky” would not have been the best word to describe Martin “Mike” Halka.

He never got a chance to know his mother, who died when he was 6 weeks old. The death of his father, Martin James Halka, in 1992 came as a hard blow.

When it was announced Waite High School would receive $17.2 million for renovation by the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission, alumni were concerned because Scott was getting closer to $37 million.

Waite’s number ended up being closer to $20 million, but even Principal David Yenrick, an alumnus, made it clear that he was not pleased that Waite was getting $17 million less for renovation than its architectural twin, Scott.
