        Another thought to ponder — why was Christmas outlawed in New England and why and how was Christmas restored?

        Longtime state legislator Randy Gardner will tell you that another long time state legislator, Charles Kurfess is a mentor and role model in Gardner’s political career.

        Karina Hahn-Claydon nominated the late Dr. Thomas P. Bowlus for the Eastwood’s Alumni Association’s Hall of Fame because of “the fact that he was a man like no other.”

        “Dr. Bowlus was an Eastwood alumnus (Pemberville High School), a World War II veteran and has greatly impacted others then and for generations to come,” Hahn-Claydon said.

          A detention pond that will improve drainage in the Navarre Avenue and Pickle Road area is among the highlights in Oregon’s proposed 2018 budget.

        “We’ve been working on this for a couple of years now. It will finally get under construction,” City Administrator Mike Beazley told The Press last week. “It’s a significant investment for the city and it’s an opportunity to continue to improve our ability to fight heavy rains and control flooding in our neighborhoods. It will serve the Navarre Avenue and Pickle and Brown roads area. That’s the biggest project we have underway.”

        The detention pond will be large enough to hold a 10-year rain event, he said.
