Facebook, Twitter added to Oregon PD site
Hoping to increase interaction with the public, the Oregon Police Department has been upgrading its website to include links to Facebook and Twitter.

“A lot of people follow Twitter on their cell phones so we wanted to try it out,” said Detective/Sgt. Tim Zale. “We can now correspond and interact with the public in real time.”

One post by the department last week on Facebook informed readers police had arrested a suspect in an attempted burglary in the Sylvandale area.

After a resident of Eastmoreland Drive near Sylvandale asked for more details, the police posted the suspect was from out of the area and appears to be mentally unstable.

“It seems to be an isolated incident and thanks to quick thinking from watchful neighbors, the person was taken into custody,” the police post says. “

Another post warns readers to not leave items in parked cars because the area has been hit by a rash of vehicle break-ins.

Former Cardinal Stritch and Genoa football coach Bill Hrabak always said that he

wanted to get into politics. Now, he’s getting his chance.

Hrabak is a candidate for Ohio House of Representatives District 81 in the November 2 general election. Representing the Constitution Party, he joins Democrat Benjamin E. Nutter and Republican Rex Arthur Damschroder on the ballot. The seat, now held by term-limited Jeff Wagner, R-Sycamore, covers parts of Seneca, Sandusky and Ottawa counties.

Politics is nothing new for Hrabak — he was a campaign volunteer for President Ronald Reagan and President George Bush’s election efforts. His original intention was to run in the Republican primary, but changed his decision after being interviewed by the Constitution Party.

“I am a pro-life advocated, Second Amendment supporter and Reagan conservative,” Hrabak wrote in campaign literature. “My decision to run for the Constitution Party is, in part, due to a lack of a true conservative direction by other parties.”

 
Turbines beneficial to students at research facility

Wind turbines that are providing energy to Oregon Schools also provides educational and curriculum advantages for the district’s students.

The “Wind for Schools” program allows students a more hands-on approach to alternative energy as students monitor and analyze the turbine’s performance in real time.

Dennis Slotnick, an environmental science and biology teacher at Clay High School, participated alongside representatives from SUREnergy and Chevron last week in a proposal to increase usage of wind turbines in the school district.

Slotnick’s presentation states that “any school can teach about wind energy with hands-on alternatives, and we do more than that at CHS.”

Output from a residential Skystream turbine already on campus helps Slotnick build a database curriculum for students. Slotnick’s classes have played a part in researching the benefits of wind turbines from the Skysteam 3.7 turbine operating at Clay’s Wind Research Facility.
