Kateri schools announce new elementary location
Written by Press Staff Writer

When the schools and churches in the Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha Deanery of the Diocese of Toledo joined efforts to form the Kateri Catholic School System, the long-term vision was to have all of its students, preschool through high school, on one campus.

The school system’s board of directors recently voted to move the Kateri Catholic Academy Elementary School to existing space at the Oregon Campus beginning with the 2010-2011 academic year.

The preschool and kindergarten will be located in the former convent, which is a separate building on the campus that is being renovated to also include office space. The main building is being separated into three distinct areas for the elementary, middle and high schools.

Currently, the elementary school, which serves students in preschool through grade five, operates two campuses, one at St. Jerome in Walbridge and the other at St. Thomas Aquinas in Toledo. The Oregon Campus already houses Kateri Catholic Academy Middle School and Cardinal Stritch High School.

Woodmore High School sophomore Ryan Wicker is pretty handy with a rifle.

Wicker, 15, is an instructor-in-training with The Appleseed Project, a federally-licensed, all-volunteer grassroots organization. The Appleseed Project's administrative functions, such as weekend "Shoots," are under the direction of the Revolutionary War Veterans Association (RWVA), a 501c3 organization whose mission is to preserve and pass on traditional rifle marksmanship skills to Americans.

The RWVA helps preserve those marksmanship skills by conducting Appleseed Shoots - weekend rifle marksmanship clinics - with American heritage presentations interspersed throughout the event.

Appleseed Shoots are held at various sites around Ohio, including Gibsonburg, Miamisburg, Athens, Viena, West Jefferson, New Philadelphia, Lancaster, Salem, and Lima. This year's Gibsonburg events are April 24-25, May 29-30, July 24-25, Aug. 28-29 and Sept. 25.

During each event, participants are taught the role that riflemen and marksmanship played in American history. Appleseed Shoot participants learn what occurred on April 19, 1775 - the Revolutionary War battles at Lexington and Concord, Mass. - and "the shot heard round the world."

 
Northwood trims pay, ok’s furlough to cut costs

Northwood City Council last week voted 6-1 to cut non-union city employees’ pay by 3 percent, and voted 5-2 to force all non-union management city personnel to take eight unpaid furlough days, effective immediately.

Councilmen Jim Barton, Randy Kozina, Ed Schimmel, Dean Edwards, and Connie Hughes voted for both measures, while Dave Gallaher was opposed. Councilman Mike Myers voted for the pay cut, but against the furlough.

The city has struggled with reduced income tax collections and has cut expenses since last year.

At the last council meeting, Mayor Mark Stoner reported that income tax collections this year have dropped $102,261, or 15.9 percent, compared to the same period last year.

Last fall, the city cut over $600,000 in expenses, with few departments spared the budget ax.

The 3 percent cut affects the civil service secretary, baseball commissioner, Web site coordinator, administrative secretary in the police department, animal control officer, crossing guard, the clerk of council/city clerk and deputy clerk.

The furlough affects the city administrator, police chief, fire chief, director of public service, finance and revenue director, clerk of court, police captain, and law director/city prosecutor. The unpaid time may be taken in increments of one hour up to eight days in consecutive order.
