Oregon school board to decide on another levy

The Oregon school board, disappointed by voters’ rejection of a 5.95-mill emergency levy Aug. 4, has until Aug. 20 to place another levy on the November ballot. But first, they want to analyze last Tuesday’s election results before they make any decisions, according to School Board President Jeff Ziviski.
 
“It’s disappointing the levy failed because we have a desperate need for additional revenue within the district, though we realize we are in some tough economic times no one has faced before,” said Ziviski.

Voters rejected the levy by 3,605 to 1,119, according to unofficial results released by the board of elections last week.

The board had hoped the levy would be easier to pass following millions in budget cuts it made in the last several months.

At age 11, Walbridge resident Craig Burtch was diagnosed with multiple cavernous angiomas, a congenital abnormality that causes brain hemorrhaging due to a lesion in the brain.

"He had his first 'bleed' at 11 and he has had 10 bleeds since, with three brain surgeries," said Burtch's mother, Linda Hamilton. "Some of the bleeds were large enough to require three brain surgeries, and we traveled as far as Gainesville, Fla., and Phoenix for those surgeries."

In 2006, Burtch had two bleeds in the brain stem and had to be put on high doses of steroids to combat the swelling within the brain stem. Doctors now think that the high doses of steroids may be the cause of a bone disease called avascular necrosis, or AVN.

 
Pet Finatics a dream come true for Oregon man

Naming their new pet store, Pet Finatics LLC, didn't come overnight for David Grosjean II and his fiancee, Tracy Kamelesky.

"We were going round and round with names for like two months," Grosjean said. "We were trying to figure out a play on words of some sort, but we didn't want to be too out of the ordinary. This just popped in my head and we discussed it with a few people. We had two pages of names we went through."

Pet Finatics was almost Pets Unlimited, or, better yet, Tank Dogs.

"My friends sometimes call me Tank," Grosjean said, "because I used to do aquarium maintenance."

Make no mistake, this guy was destined to either work in a pet store or own one.
