After two days of screening and registering prospective kindergarten students for the 2012-13 school year, Dolores Swineford, principal of Walbridge Elementary School, said parents appear to have accepted the decision by the Lake school board to reduce the kindergarten program to all-day, every other day.

A few parents asked if a “full-time” program would be reinstated if a levy is approved this year but no one raised questions about the efficacy of an all-day, every other day program, Swineford said.

Shawn Cantos has come a long way to reach this point.

Contos, who currently serves as the Penn State University wrestling team’s strength and conditioning coach, competed this weekend at the Olympic Trials in Iowa City, Iowa. Contos will wrestle in the freestyle division at 121 pounds (55 kilograms).

 

Contos has not stopped wrestling. He was fourth in the 2011 Freestyle Olympic Trials Qualifier, which is what got him here. He was second in the 2003 New York AC International. During his youth, he was a junior nationals champion.

Not only was bullying existent in the halls of North Shore High School in the movie Mean Girls, it is also happening right here at Woodmore High School.

In a poll given to grades seven through 12, it was revealed that the strongest form of bullying is no longer name calling in the hallways. This day and age, kids are using texting and other forms of media to bully fellow students. Out of 336 Woodmore students surveyed, 177 said they have used texting to bully another person. That’s over 50 percent of the people surveyed.

Oregon school board members P.J. Kapfhammer and Jeff Ziviski will not return to their committee assignments, from which they had resigned earlier this year.

Kapfhammer, in an e-mail to board president Dick Gabel on Feb. 27, said he would like to be removed from all committees to which he had been assigned. “I believe that anything I do or say at these committee meetings will and are being used against me,” he stated in the e-mail. “I will not attend any meetings at the administration building due to everyone fearing me there. I don’t want our employees to feel uncomfortable because of me.”

An autopsy on an infant found in a freezer in an East Toledo home, completed by the Lucas County Coroner’s Office, shows that the infant had been born alive.

Steve Kahle, coroner investigator, said the male infant, found at 116 Paine St., is being identified as “Baby Doe.”
