The Oregon Board of Education will continue to have police officers attend school board meetings because of threats that have been made to some board members.

Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian a few weeks ago had said the city would no longer allow police officers to be at school board meetings after he learned that the city was footing the bill.

The Oregon school board will continue to “tweak” the number of stops made by the new bus shuttle providing transportation to Clay High School students.

“The route itself was a beginning point,” P.J. Kapfhammer, who was elected to the school board last November, said on Wednesday. “We’re still tweaking it.”

In a story last week about a time capsule found at Wynn Elementary. Darla Bohland's son's name is Matthew, who attends eighth grade at Eisenhower Middle School. He is a boy scout with Troop 131 working on his Star Rank. Darla’s father name is Ivan L. McCoy, not Larry.

 

With the completion of several infrastructure projects in Oregon, the fire department will no longer be using its sirens, a relief for residents living near the city’s three fire stations.

The stations - at Bay Shore Road, Wynn and Seaman, and on Wheeling Street near I-280, have not used the sirens in years, said Mayor Mike Seferian.

For new Northwood Fire Chief Joel Whitmore, becoming a firefighter, much less a fire chief, has been a lifelong dream come true.

“It was always something I wanted to do, even as a kid,” Whitmore said. “I just always thought it would be cool to be a fireman. I joined the fire department when I graduated from Northwood High School in 1988.”
