Oregon Council voted 6-1 Monday for Councilman Mike Sheehy, a Democrat, to be president of council.

Sheehy, finishing his ninth term on council, has been president of council previously.

Mayor Mike Seferian had called a special council meeting last Monday before a scheduled committee of the whole meeting so council could pick a new president. Former council president Clint Wasserman had resigned from council at a meeting on Sept. 12 to take a job as an assistant prosecutor with the Lucas County Prosecutor’s Office .

For the staff at The Press, taking in a free roaming cat was a win-win situation, beneficial for the animal as well as staff members.

According Melinda Sandwisch, assistant office manager, Princess Peaches Pumpkin Pie, a.k.a. “Peaches,” came to The Press a few months ago and has made herself right at home.

Ellen Mix, the widow of Tim Mix, of Northwood, has filed a lawsuit in the Wood County Court of Common Pleas.
 
Mix, 67, waited 28 minutes for EMS personnel to arrive on the morning of March 3.
 
Ellen had called 9-1-1 to report that her husband was having breathing problems. She would call three times that morning, the last call relaying that her husband had stopped breathing.
 
By the time help arrived from Medic 804, an ambulance from Northwood Fire Station No. 1, manned by an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), and Medic 50, an Advanced Life Support (ALS) rescue squad from Lake Township, Mix had stopped breathing.

Rolling Stone is calling it a “pulse-racing thriller.”

For a group of local women, the review of the film “The Ides of March,” which opened in theaters Oct. 7, is a gross understatement.

Oregon Council member Sandy Bihn at a council meeting Monday said the algae in Lake Erie is getting worse.

“The situation in Lake Erie with the algae is becoming more and more grave,” she said to council. “There’s a lot of newspaper articles that are referring to Lake Erie as dying again. Obviously, that can impact the treatment cost for water intake, it can affect the economy of the lake and economy of the region.”
