Pearson Metropark in Oregon will host a Waterfowl Festival Sunday, September 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with hunting dog demonstrations, decoy carving and a variety of other outdoor activities for the whole family.

        Fourteen years ago, planning began for a new Northwood school building. Planning for the new school began in 2003 with then-Superintendent Ron Matter, now the superintendent at the Penta Career Center.

        On Tuesday, the new pre-kindergarten through grade 12 school building will open for business. Current Superintendent Greg Clark says this signals the end to a long, enduring and gradual process that has seen the fruits of numerous people's labors rewarded.

        The past is prologue.

        That was the theme at the unveiling of the new K-5 Eastwood Elementary School as speakers discussed the rich history of the school district in what was another milestone in a special relationship between the community and its school system.

        There are four candidates vying for the Oregon Municipal Court judge seat in the November 7 General Election. The candidates will appear at a public forum in the Community Room of the Oregon Municipal Complex, 5330 Seaman Road, on Thursday, Sept. 7 at 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.

        The candidates are Anne M. Brossia, Scott A. Winckowski, Lou Kovacs, and Clint Wassserman.

        One of them will replace Jeffrey B. Keller, the current municipal court judge, who is retiring.

        Oregon City Council last week agreed to make a $70,000 contribution to the Oregon on the Bay Regional Economic Development Foundation.

        The city annually contributes funds to the organization, described as a public-private partnership between the business community and the city. 

        Mayor Mike Seferian said at a council meeting August 28 that the city has made the same contribution to the Foundation for the last five years.

        The city used to match the amount that was raised by the Foundation, which gets its funding mostly from membership dues and fundraising, but now provides a set amount, said Seferian.
