CDR John C. Hazlett, Commanding Officer, Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC), Toledo, said that local Navy personnel are working to help create a museum for the City of Oregon and the Harbor View neighborhood.

Commander Hazlett says that on Sunday afternoon approximately a dozen Navy Seabees volunteered to help restore a former church located at 2083 Autokee Street into a museum.  The museum will serve not only Harbor View, but the entire Oregon community.

The Harbor View Historical Society and Museum is the former Harbor View Missionary Baptist Church.

Amidst roughly 800 people, Cardinal Stritch High School celebrated an important milestone last Thursday, commemorating its 50th year in existence as an educational institution in addition to celebrating the first anniversary of Kateri Catholic Academy.

The 10 a.m. Mass was led by Bishop Leonard P. Blair at the school gymnasium to commemorate the event, and remarks were made by President Eric Schild who spoke about the school, its accomplishments and its vision for the future. Entertainment was also provided by Reverend Jeff McBeth and people were given a tour of the facilities when the event commenced, just before lunch was served.

Oregon City Council approved a three year contract with the Oregon Police Command Officers/Fraternal Order of Police, and the Ohio Labor Council at a meeting last week.

“This is the first in a step of labor agreements we will be dealing with this year,” City Administrator Mike Beazley said to council. “It is important to note that in a time when we are trying to hold the line on expenses, both sides did a good job in recognizing the fiscal challenges facing the region, and agreed to a labor agreement with no wage increases the first year and wage reopeners in years one, two and three.”

The Lake Township trustees, acting at the request of some Fostoria Road residents, have approved a resolution asking for a traffic speed study – the first step in the process for getting the speed limit lowered to 35 mph from 55.

The board of trustees Tuesday unanimously approved the resolution, which will be forwarded to the Wood County engineer’s office and then to the Ohio Department of Transportation, which would actually conduct the study.

Oregon City Council last week backed a resolution in support of the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel (OCC) and urged the Ohio Legislature to restoring funding to its budget.

The OCC has a current operating budget of approximately $8.5 million per year. However, under the proposed biennial budget, the OCC’s budget would be reduced to $4.1 million per year.
