There will be a farewell to Graytown Elementary School on May 6 from 2-4 p.m. with memorabilia posted and the school’s history displayed. Feel free to bring additional memorabilia. Benton-Carroll-Salem Schools is planning to close the building, constructed in 1938, at the end of this school year.

Next fall Lake High School classes will move into a brand new building, and students and faculty can’t wait.
 
“I know we are all really excited about it,” junior Ben Swartz said. “We’ll be happy to get out of ‘The Hangar,’ but we’re glad we have it.”

The Oregon police plan to change the colors of its cars from mostly white to black and white.
 
Last month, city council approved the purchase of three Chevrolet Caprice cruisers that will have the new colors.
 
Mayor Mike Seferian said at a recent meeting that road patrol officers took a vote to change the colors on the cruisers. He said that the city would go back to the traditional black cruisers with white decals, including some blue markings, as the fleet is updated in the future. Other police departments have also chosen to return to the black and white cruisers, he said.

Use of social media could be one of Ottawa County’s next moves in advancing its emergency preparedness.

“We are reviewing it. But it presents some challenges with the county policy,” said Fred Petersen, director of the Ottawa County Emergency Management Agency. “The county doesn’t want its employees on social media (during work hours).”

Starr Elementary School will have solar panels on its rooftop this fall.
 
It’s the most recent effort by the Oregon City Schools district to cut utility costs with environmentally friendly “green energy.”
 
The school was chosen to receive the panels because its roof was replaced last year in anticipation of the project, according to Dean Sandwisch, the district’s business manager.
