Sales brisk - `Clunkers’ program well received, dealers say

Car sales generated by the so-called Cash for Clunkers program have been so robust that some area dealers say the $1 billion allocated by the federal government will be exhausted well before the program is scheduled to end on Nov. 1.

John Becerra, sales manager at Mathews Ford in Oregon, said he was certain the initial funding would soon be gone.

“That will happen, absolutely,” he said Wednesday, adding buyers flocked to the Navarre Avenue dealership when the Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS) officially began July 24.

He estimated 40-50 vehicles were sold under the program at the dealership in just the first few days.

Like a lot of 12-year-olds are these days, Brandon Rodriguez is looking to raise

some cash.

However, Brandon doesn’t want the money to buy video games, a trip to the movies or some iTunes. Instead, the Oregon youth is planning a car wash fund-raiser to benefit the animals at the Toledo Area Humane Society.

Brandon, with the help of several friends and classmates, will be washing cars for donations Aug. 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Ralphie’s on Navarre Avenue in Oregon.

“I like animals, and it bothers me to hear that they could be harmed or not taken care of,” Brandon said. “The Humane Society does very good things for animals and they need all the help they can get so I thought I should be one of those to help them.

 
Oregon schools - Concessions by union restores 7 teaching jobs

An agreement reached last week by the Oregon City School District and teachers’ union will save the district about $375,000 and allow it to restore seven teaching positions that had been recently cut as part of an extensive austerity measure.

The Oregon City Federation of Teachers agreed to an increase in members’ contribution to their medical insurance plan. The increase goes into effect Aug. 1.

The school board last month had approved cutting seven teachers as the district prepares to go to the polls Aug. 4 and decide a 5.95-mill emergency operating levy.

Superintendent Michael Zalar said he was pleased the union agreed to voluntarily restructure its medical benefit plan.
