Dr. Mike Zalar

Dr. Mike Zalar, superintendent of the Oregon City Schools District, recently received a $13,256 increase in salary for the 2011-12 fiscal year, according to figures released by the district.

Zalar’s annual salary jumped from $116,965 to $130,221 after the school board approved an increase in administrator salaries at a meeting in August.

Administrators who also got raises include:
• Jane Fruth, treasurer, $97,010 to $103,343;

Those attending a Meet the Candidates forum Oct. 17 in Elmore could witness an unusual political rivalry.

Lowell Krumnow, the long-time mayor of this Ottawa County village, is being challenged for the office by his older brother, James Krumnow.

James is mid-way through a term on village council.

Kelly J. Kaczala, news editor at The Press Newspapers, and Melissa A. Burden, freelance reporter, last week won an Excellence in Journalism award from The Press Club of Toledo in the nondaily category for a story about a Northwood man who had stopped breathing on March 3 waiting 28 minutes for a rescue squad to arrive, despite three calls made by his wife to 9-1-1. He later died at a hospital after suffering brain damage from a lack of oxygen.

Judges called their reporting “the very essence of journalism.”

The award was presented at the 13th annual Touchstone Awards that honored community service and excellence in journalism on Oct. 6 at the Toledo Club.

Back in 2009 the Genoa football team decided that they wanted to show support for victims and survivors of breast cancer and draw attention to this disease during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

They did this by wearing pink gloves, armbands and athletic tape on their wrists and ankles. The team will continue this tradition Oct. 28 in their game against Eastwood at Comet Stadium.

Genoa village officials are working steadily to alleviate future flooding problems as the community enters the fourth phase of a six-phase sewer upgrade.

That’s the message village council recently offered two Buckeye Street residents who complained September rains caused some major problems.
