The Oregon school board last week appointed Sheron Baumgartner to fill the unexpired term of long-time board member Betty Carstensen, who passed away unexpectedly a few weeks ago.

Baumgartner, who previously served on the board from 1982 to 1993, was chosen from among a number of other candidates based on her experience and knowledge of the district.

“We had numerous options available to use,” said school board President Jeff Ziviski. The board wanted to choose someone who, like Carstensen, is from Jerusalem Township.

“Sheron is unique in that she meets our established criteria and is available to serve the district in a time of need,” said Ziviski.

Baumgartner was chosen from a list of approximately 12 people, including previous board members as well as members of the community, who had expressed an interest in filling the vacancy, said Ziviski.

 
Stritch, Dan R’s unite against texting and driving

A mangled, dark green Ford Thunderbird LX sits in front of Cardinal Stritch High School, and it looks as if the driver could have been injured in it.

No worry, the driver is fine, although she received minor injuries in a recent accident. Now, her car is being used to send a message--Do not text while driving.

The 17-year-old girl who drove the car was texting while driving in a parking lot when she lost control and her car rolled over.

The driver’s side is virtually spared, fortunately for the driver, but there is glass throughout the automobile and the passenger side is destroyed with the top of the car virtually smashed in so that anyone sitting there would have suffered injuries.

The driver is a client of Dan R’s Automotive on Navarre Avenue in Oregon. When Cathy Reichow, an owner there, saw the damage, she had an idea.

Oregon Councilman Mike Seferian attributed his dominant win over incumbent Mayor Marge Brown in the mayoral primary on Tuesday to perseverance.

“I worked hard. I thought I would do well. But I was very pleased when the vote totals started coming in,” said Seferian. “I felt my supporters were getting out the message I was trying to give, and people were listening.”

Seferian, 51, will face Brown, 72, in the November election. Seferian, who has been on council for nine terms, won 54 percent of the vote, while Brown, who is seeking reelection to a third term, won 37 percent. Grocer Marvin Dabish finished last with less than 9 percent of the vote.
