With just weeks away from Election Day, a flier slinging mud at an Oregon School Board candidate is making the rounds.

The flier, distributed anonymously to the media and throughout the city, notes that P.J. Kapfhammer, one of three candidates vying for two board seats, has a criminal past.

The Sixth District Court of Appeals has upheld the prison sentence of a Woodville man for his role in the armed robbery and beating of an elderly rural Gibsonburg couple in 2009.

The appeals court affirmed the sentenced imposed on Jimmy Houston, who was convicted along with two other men by the Sandusky County Common Pleas Court for the July 2, 2009 break-in of the State Route 600 home of James and Mary Kohler.

If all goes well, the closed Brunner Elementary School will be in its new owner’s hands by mid-January.

Curtice resident Gary Moritz told the Genoa Planning Committee about a month ago he wanted to buy the building and renovate it for multiple purposes, including a gym area, a rental hall, and a business hub.

A candidate for the Oregon school board blasted the Oregon City Schools superintendent and school board members last Wednesday for increasing the salaries of administrators at a previous meeting.

P.J. Kapfhammer, who is running for a seat on the school board, asked Dr. Mike Zalar, superintendent of the district, about the increase at a board meeting last Wednesday.

Arraignment hearings are scheduled for Oct. 19 for two suspects in the robbery last week of the Millbury branch of Genoa Bank on State Route 51.

Steven Perales, 45, of Georgetown Drive, Oregon, and Heather Beasley, 24, who gave no address to authorities, have been charged in Ottawa County Municipal Court with aggravated robbery.
