The Oregon City Schools District plans to install window air conditioners in the classrooms by next year.

“I’m very excited about this initiative,” said Superintendent Hal Gregory at a recent school board meeting. “I think it’s long overdue in coming. It’s something we all support and it’s really a low cost solution to a big, big problem.”

There will be a total of 200 units installed in the high school, intermediate and elementary schools once the project is completed, according to Dean Sandwich, director of business affairs in the district.

By last Wednesday, the day before school started, air conditioners were already installed at Clay.

How many of those athletes, however, competed in the men’s lightweight double sculls? How many were the class valedictorian at St. John’s Jesuit High School and graduated from Dartmouth College?

Better yet, how many Olympic athletes grew up in Millbury, Ohio?

Oregon City Council this month approved ordinances to remove and relocate overhead electric and cable wires to improve aesthetics as part of the Navarre Avenue Safety Improvement Project.

Council passed a purchase order and work agreements with Toledo Edison to relocate and remove lines for $195,751. Council also approved a purchase order and a work agreement with Buckeye Broadband to relocate aerial cable equipment and underground lines for $87,524.62.

The section of Navarre that will be affected is from I-280 to Isaac Streets Drive.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office is asking for tips on a suspect who robbed a convenience store on Aug. 18.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5-9 to 6 feet tall and weighing between 220 and 250 pounds.

He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with red stripes under the sleeves and gray sweatpants.

He was carrying a black and green backpack with draw strings.

Local, state and federal officials lauded the opening Monday of the Great Lakes Dredged Material Center for Innovation, saying the facility represents a milestone in the re-use of material that would otherwise be deposited in Lake Erie.

Paul Toth, president and chief executive officer of the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, said it was time to think differently about the nearly 1 million cubic yards of material dredged annually from the shipping channel at the Port of Toledo.

“The Center for Innovation will help us to better understand how to derive value from the material so it can be used to enhance the region in a sustainable manner,” he said.
