Nathan Lord didn't get flustered when people standing behind him mistook him for a girl because of his long hair.

"I just turned around and laughed," he said. "Sometimes I'd tell them I'm a boy and they would say, 'Oh, I'm so sorry.' "

Lord, 11, the son of Ed and Brandy Lord of Northwood, has two brothers ages 14 and 8 who have normal-length hair for a boy. Nathan, however, was growing his for a good cause.
The 4-foot-4, 76-pound fifth-grader, who played safety and backup running back for the Northwood Little Rangers football team last fall, donated his boyhood mane to the Locks of Love program as a Christmas gift to kids in need.

The Ottawa County board of commissioners at a recent meeting approved three agreements providing services for senior citizens in 2009.
The board approved an agreement with Grace Evangelical Church in Elmore for the church to continue as a senior nutrition meals program site at a cost of $63 per day of use.
The agreement will be in effect Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2009 and will be renewed for another year with the consent of both parties.

Oregon could tap undefined contingency funds this year to conduct a study for wind and solar energy.
Council discussed the matter last month during a debate over reducing undefined contingency funds earmarked for the 2009 budget.
Oregon City Councilman Jerry Peach had requested a reduction in the fund to $25,000 from $50,000.
Peach said the city appropriated and used far less in its undefined contingency fund in the past.
