The Oregon City Schools District will be replacing its current T1 Internet connections with a new fiber network that will connect all of the Oregon City Schools to Clay High School.

If the engineering, permitting and building processes go as planned, the fiber network will be in place for the 2009-2010 school year, according to Nathan Quigg, the district’s technology director.

The Oregon school board last Wednesday accepted the resignation of Loren Dirr, Clay High School principal.

Dirr, who spent 34 years in the district, is retiring. His resignation becomes effective Aug. 1.

Amy Heuring isn't the second coming of Steven Spielberg, but she has plenty of experience in the director's chair.

The Clay High School teacher, who last year retired as a drama teacher after 23 years, has directed such plays as "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Anything Goes," Agnes of God," and "Thoroughly Modern Millie."

The Ohio Environmental Council is calling for the federal government to enact strong ballast water legislation, citing a recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency report that identifies areas of the Great Lakes most vulnerable to the entry of aquatic nonindigenous species.

The report, Predicting Future Introductions of Nonindigenous Species to the Great Lakes, notes that the port of Toledo is one of several Lake Erie ports at great risk for future invasion by the species via transoceanic shipping.
