Oregon School District

Board wants
fall referendum
Formal approval

All signs point to a

November referendum for
an Oregon School District teacher compensation
Each board member other than Dan
Krause, who was absent
expressed support for
the November timeline
Monday night during a
discussion of the proposed
referendum, which would
create a new system to
recruit and retain district staff.
Ive always hoped that
we could go in November, said Jeff Ramin.

Unless I hear (consultant) Joe Donovan and/or

administrators say thats
the worst idea ever, Im
hoping for November.
The November election,
with the presidential race
on the ballot, will likely
have a much higher turnout than the alternative, in
April 2017.

board was having a similar
discussion about the timing, and ultimately decided not to put the compensation referendum on the

approved by 63 percent of
the voters.

County, village reach agreement on highway reconstruction

Timeline still to be finalized

The Village of Oregon and Dane

County have taken another step
toward getting some local roads in
better shape soon.
The village and county released a
memorandum this week that outlines
plans to reconstruct County Hwys.

and costs for the roads going forward.
The $2.4 million reconstruction,
which will be split 50-50 between the
village and county, will begin with

2017. Phase 2 of the project will cover reconstruction of North Main Street
from Grove Street to the northern village limits, expected to be completed
in 2018. The final phase will reconstruct Janesville Street from Spring to
Wolfe streets.
Jerry Bollig, who sits on both
the county and village boards, said
the agreement is good for all those

involved especially drivers.

Residents that drive on these
roads, they pay their taxes, they dont
understand and probably dont care
why the roads are degrading to the
point where theyre getting bad, Bollig said of the years-long negotiations
with the county. They just want to be
able to drive on a good road thats not
going to cause damage to their auto.
Village administrator Mike Gracz
said individual agreements will still
have to be worked out before each
project begins, but the memorandum
provides the framework for that.
Gracz said village and county officials will meet soon to determine the
final timeline for work.

Oregon School District

Increased state aid no cure for schools

Levy limits prevent
districts from
spending more
Scott De Laruelle
Unified Newspaper Group

The Oregon School District is set to receive more

state aid next year, but district officials say the extra
funding will go to property tax relief rather than
In numbers released
last month by the Wisconsin Department of Public
Instruction, the district is
estimated to receive $19.9
million in state aid for the
2016-17 school year an
increase of $18,789 (6.4
percent) from the 2015-16
school year. OSD business
director Andy Weiland said
in an email to the Observer that while the estimate
is a bit higher than district officials expected, it
has no reflection on how
much we can spend.

Its property tax relief,

he said.
According to the nonpartisan Wisconsin Taxpayers
Alliance, while general
school aids are slated to
rise $108.1 million next
year, the increase doesnt
mean more money for
schools, because they are
subject to state-imposed
limits that cap the amount
districts can collect from
general aid and school
property taxes.
For the 2015-16 and
2016-17 school years, the
state is not allowing any
increase in these limits
unless voters approve one
via referendum. With the
revenue limit unchanged,
the increase in general
school aids is offset by a
reduction in school property taxes.
T h e W TA s a i d t h e
average district will see
a 0.8 percent increase in
non-federal revenues next
year, up from 0 percent
in 2015-16. In addition,
all public school districts
will have 1.4 percent of

their aid deducted (an estimated $63.9 million) to

pay for the 7,800 full-time
pupils enrolled in 22 independent charter schools in
the state.
Email Unified Newspaper
Group reporter
Scott De Laruelle at scott.

Whats next?
The July 1 aid estimates use unaudited school district data and will be recalculated on audited 2015-16
data and certified on Oct. 15. The departments July 1
aid estimate does not include per pupil categorical aid,
which is based on a three year average of third Friday
in September membership. That aid is $250 per pupil,
totaling $211.2 million, and will be paid in March 2017.

unanimously to grant Caper owners
Dan and Elizabeth Donoghue the
license theyd been seeking since
No one spoke against the couples
application, and Dan Donoghue said
he was surprised at how smoothly it
all went.
I was expecting more at the public hearing, but it went quickly and
was voted on unanimously, he said
Friday in a telephone interview.

The Donoghues approached the

Village Board in early March about
getting a liquor license in order to
sell wines with their chocolates.
A village code, however, did not
allow a business that is within 1,056
feet of another Class A license holder to acquire the same license. A
Class A license allows a business
to sell beer, wine or, in some cases,
hard cider for off-premise use.
A Kwik Trip store on North Main
Street is less than 300 feet from The
Chocolate Caper, and Donoghue
asked the board to amend the rules
to approve his application.
A few years ago, the board spent
almost a year revising the villages
liquor license ordinance and eventually adopted a rule requiring a
quarter-mile of separation between
businesses selling liquor for retail
take-out to prevent a concentration
of liquor stores in a small area.

We all bear responsibility

for tragedies like this

his past Friday morning,

a bicyclist was struck and
killed by a motorist on Lincoln Road southwest of Oregon. A
Village of Brooklyn man has been
arrested on suspicion of hit-andrun, causing death.
This is the second time in as
many months a motorist has
killed a bicyclist in Dane County,
and the 10th bicyclist fatality in
Wisconsin this year. Last year,
motorists killed
69 pedestrians
and bicyclists
in Wisconsin.
The total for the
United States
for 2014 (the
most recent
data): 5,610
pedestrians and
For some of
us, our knee-jerk response to such
tragedies might be to withdraw
ourselves and loved ones into the
protective armor of our own automobile.
Rather than taking the risks of
bicycling on public roads or
letting our kids walk to school, for
that matter well just stay in our
vehicles. If other people are foolish enough to travel about in our
community without a car, thats
their problem. Meanwhile, weve
done all we can to protect good
old Numero Uno.
We could say this collision was
the fault of this specific driver,
and that he is simply one among a
small number of bad apples.
We could say bicyclists dont
belong on roads built for cars
after all, bicyclists dont pay gas
We could say the roads themselves are dangerous, and therefore separate but equal bike
trails and walking paths should be
extended everywhere.
We could say this was an unfortunate accident it could have
happened to any one of us.
But none of these gets to the
heart of the matter, not even the
money part.
Gas taxes dont begin to pay for

maintaining and policing Wisconsins streets, roads and highways.

In fact, property taxes cover 75 to
88 percent of local road costs (of
which Lincoln Road is one). The
astronomical price tag to extend
bike trails and walking paths
everywhere makes that option a
pipe dream.
Truth be told, the roads themselves arent dangerous. Cars
themselves dont injure and kill.
And driving more wont make
driving safer.
It is time to confront the lies we
tell ourselves.
Getting behind the wheel of a
big, rigid box weighing thousands
of pounds is never an accident.
Nor is it ever an accident when we
accelerate our vehicle to speeds
that can easily kill and will
almost certainly injure unarmored people who fail to get out
of our way in time.
These are choices. Our choices
have consequences.
A collision between a motor
vehicle and a pedestrian or cyclist
is never a fair contest. The deck is
always heavily stacked in favor of
the guy who is wearing the armor.
Choosing to drive is choosing
to impose risks on others while
shielding ourselves from those
risks. It is a kind of asymmetrical
warfare, offense masquerading as
Trying to weasel our way out
of responsibility isnt an accident,
There are dots to connect
between these fatalities and our
love of automotive power, speed,
convenience and self-protection.
Dots to connect between these
fatalities and the sprawling distances we have chosen to build
into our communities and lives.
Dots between these fatalities and
the speeds we choose to drive at
Driving as fast as we do drives
down the practicality of not driving; it drives up the risks of not
driving; and it drives away people
who cant (or dont want to) drive.
You cant see any of this from
the inside of a windshield. You

cant avoid seeing it when you

get out of your car and experience what it is like to walk, roll
wheelchairs, push strollers and
ride bicycles. Not just as forms of
exercise, but in the course of doing
errands in daily life.
Needless to say, the externalities of all our driving couldnt be
more obvious to people who cant
drive, people who cant afford a
car, people who dont have family
or friends at their beck and call to
chauffeur them, and people who
just people who just plain dont
want to use a car for every errand
and trip.
We need to put our own skin
in their game. And we need to
challenge our elected leaders to
get off their duffs, too. It is no
coincidence that our driver-education courses are so inadequate,
our transportation policies so automobile-centric, our traffic laws so
lenient, our enforcement so lax.
We can make roads safer for
everyone by focusing first on our
own practices. Walk and bike so
you know what it is like. Drive
affectionately, as though it is your
loved ones on the other side of the
windshield. Join the Share and
Be Aware campaign at the bfw.
It is election season every seat
in the Wisconsin State Assembly
is up for grabs, as are half in the
Senate. Contact your candidates
and demand laws with greater
penalties for motorists who kill
people by driving too fast, failing
to pay attention and not yielding to
others. Demand reforms in driver
education and license renewal
people who think bicyclists dont
belong on the road dont belong
on the road, either!
And tell your local police and
district attorneys to enforce the
laws rather than blaming people
who walk and bike for simply
using our public thoroughfares in
the manner they prefer.
Feet first, anyone?
Hans Noeldner is a Village of
Oregon resident.

Hasty Judgements
It is almost always a mistake to jump to conclusions
about other peoples motives. We may think that someone is doing something for the worst of reasons, but we
really do not and cannot know with certainty why people
do the things they do. Scrutinizing our own motives and
judging ourselves can often be valuable for our own
spiritual progress, but judging others is almost always a
mistake because we simply cant know someone elses
motives. So why do we do it? Why are we so quick to
judge other people? Perhaps part of the reason is simply
that to get along with others it helps to be in tune with
what others are thinking and feeling. We cant be blind to
the fact that other people have feelings and motives for
doing what they do. But by judging others charitably, and
assuming the best of them rather than the worst, we
usually get along much better. In fact, sometimes the
charitable judgement becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
So if you are going to be hasty in making judgements
about others, at least be hasty in making charitable judgements. All it takes is a bit of kindness, empathy, and perhaps a smile to get others to act with kindness, empathy
and a smile of their own.
Christopher Simon, Metro News Service
Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the
same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with
the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
Matthew 7:1-2 NIV

Treats and meats at Ziggys

Eclectic new diner adds barbecue to side of sweets

Plenty of pickins

Scott De Laruelle
Unified Newspaper Group

For years, a candy company has famously promoted

the serendipitous combination of chocolate and peanut
putter as the ideal accidental
taste combination.
But what about ice cream
and barbecue?
They dont regularly serve
the two mixed together at
Ziggys, but they probably
would if someone asked.
With a name like Ziggys
BBQ Smoke House and Ice
Cream Parlor, customers
know exactly what theyre
getting into. A trip inside the
carefully landscaped, neatly
bricked building presents two
interesting, but otherwise
separate culinary worlds
the bright colorful shine of
a classic ice cream parlor in
the front and the plaid-tablecloth, wagon-wheeled, rustic
feel of a barbecue joint further back.
Horseshoes, farm equipment, and lots of wood
give the barbecue area a
rural atmosphere, while an
increasing number of candy
items gives the eye plenty
to explore just around the
corner. The ice cream/candy
side opened in May, while
the smoke house opened in
Its a work in progress but
a labor of love for restaurant owners Terry and Mike
Ziegelmeier, who never
imagined they would ever
run one eatery, much less
two. But not unlike cooking
a good brisket, the venture
just needed a little patience
and the right timing.

Family ties
The Edgerton couple has
been part of the 53-year-old
Ziegelmeier family business
for some time, catering food
treats to various celebrations
over the years like horse
shows and auctions.
Its been in his blood
since he was a baby, Terry
said of Mike.
When Mikes father, Ziggy (the establishments
namesake) passed away 13
years ago, the couple took
on a larger role in the business, picking up a large
increase in auction sales.
The couple bought a trailer,
which led to another. For
the past three years, theyve
relied on a small fleet of five
food trailers and a truck,
driving to serve food at auctions anywhere within an
hours drive.
It was last year at an auction for DeBrouxs Diner
they were working at when
they met Bonnie and Jerry
Thiel, who, after discovering
Mike did restoration work,
hired him for some building remodeling. Months later at a building site, Terry
said Jerry asked them out
of the blue if they would
be interested in operating a
barbecue restaurant and ice
cream shop in the building
the Thiels owned in Oregon
at 135 S. Main St.
He just floored me,
she said. I said we hadnt
thought of it, because we
didnt have the money, but
he brought us here and
showed us this location and
we thought about it and

Ziggys features a variety of barbecue, beef and

chicken, as well as appetizers like deep fried pickle spears. There also plenty of burger and sandwich
choices, from pulled pork to smoked salmon. Salads,
sides (like fresh Yukon Gold mashed potatoes) and a
kids menu are available.
The ice cream parlor features 32 flavors of ice
cream, with at least one new flavor rotating in each
month, and a variety of shakes, malts, banana splits,
slushies and candy. Terry Ziegelmeier said she plans
on adding even more candy in the future, with a goal
of selling it by the pound.
Ive got a start, but thats what I want to build
along this whole wall, she said. The kids go crazy
about this, because they dont see this kind of candy
in the store.
I want it to be the stuff you dont see every day.

Ziggys, which opened the barbecue side of its operations

earlier this summer, is owned by Terry and Mike Ziegelmeier,
who put their expertise from their family food business to
use after a surprise offer.

Ziggys BBQ Smoke House and

Ice Cream Parlor
135 S. Main St., Oregon
Hours: 11a.m. to 9p.m. daily

Cream Parlor on Facebook

Fixing it up
A lot of work went into
getting things to their current condition, though. Work
started in late fall, with old
doors, windows and walls
coming out from the former deli and office space,
and new wood flooring,
paint, fixtures, furniture and
more coming in. Silo boards
from a family friends old
farm were brought in for
the walls, along with roofing from a barn in Evansville, barn board from Beloit
family friend, and numerous
antique farm implements
gathered from endless trips
to auctions.
And the sweating didnt
happen without some tears
and blood, either, as Terry can attest to after taking
a nail gun to the top of her
foot while tearing a door
frame apart, leaving her
foot partially paralyzed.
Beyond the physical pain, it
was hard spending time and
effort working on the building instead of serving customers, Mike added.
Just to see the people
parking (nearby) on a daily basis and thinking, That
could be people coming in
here, he said.

Learning curve
At the same time, they
had to take a crash course of
sorts on becoming barbecue
experts, Terry said.
We have a small smoker
at home where you can put
two or three roasts on, but
nothing on this big of a caliber, she said.
Already familiar with
working with food, though,
they used their knowledge
and friends and family and

got to work the old-fashioned

way: trial and error. Putting
people to work as tasters,
they experimented with a
variety of flavors for rubs and
sauces to varying degrees
of success, early on.
We did a lot of inviting
over and asking, Do you
like this sauce with this? Do
you like this rub or that rub?
Terry said. Between all
those family and friends, this
is how we came up with the
rub and the sauces.
It quickly became routine.
We would work here all
day and go home at night and
think about what wed need
to do, and come weekend,
wed invite everybody over
and get everybodys opinion

- Do you like this sauce with

this, do you like this rub or
that rub, she said. You
could tell by their expression
OK, lets throw that one
down the drain.
They were very honest,
and thats what we expected.

Time to cook
Now comfortable working
on the big smoker at Ziggys, they cook a variety of
meats beef, chicken and
fish some of which have to
smoke for nearly a day.
Ribs, chicken and salmon, thats a four-hour process, pork is a 14-hour
smoked process, but then
youve got to have it soaking, Mike said, musing
over the options. Brisket
depending on tenderness
is an 18-20-hour smoking
process. Youve gotta get it
rubbed and you gotta get it
smoking, so its a very long
The process is more costly and time-consuming, but
makes for a more authentic
product, Terry said.
A lot of places said they
smoked this and smoked
that, but they dont smoke it,
they buy it and then they add
the liquid smoke, she said.
This is actually smoked.
People can smell it two
blocks down the street when
were smoking.
So far, the bigger seller
is pulled pork and ribs, but

a few specialty burgers are

beginning to take on the look
of fan favorites, Terry said,
mentioning both the smoked
salmon BLT and Little Piggy Burger.
Those two are just delicious, she said. And the
barbecue brisket loaded fries,
my gosh.
While the barbecue side
has been open for several weeks, the couple said
theyve waited to publicize
the new business until all
the new staff (five in the ice
cream parlor, 13 in the smoke
house) could be trained,
and all the kinks worked
out of the new venture. That
accomplished, they are ready
to serve a hungry public who
they hope will notice them
A lot of people are coming here who have no clue
were here, Mike said.
Were kind of off the beaten
Still, word-of-mouth is
spreading, a Facebook page
has more than 700 likes, and
with hard work and gettingoff-the-ground training out
of the way, things are looking
up on both sides of the platter.

An Italian restaurant
lasted less than one year
at the former Holstein
Restaurant location in the
Village of Brooklyn.
Angelos Italian Restaurant, which already had
locations in Monona and
McFarland, opened in
November 2015 on the
edge of the village on
County Hwy. MM.
Owner Patrick Augustine told the Observer
Tuesday the restaurant
closed at the end of July,
adding that he couldnt
provide the support they
needed to get that going.
Augustine said delivery
was key to making the
location viable, and after
circumstances changed
at the Monona location, he
could not help start that.
It really needed to be
a mom and pop running
it and putting in the sweat
equity, Augustine said.
Augustine said he was
disappointed at how the
situation worked out, but
appreciated the customers
who dined at the restaurant
in its nine months open.
The support we
received from the community was great, and we do
have some loyal customers, he said.
Augustine said he was
meeting with a person
interested in keeping the
restaurant open as a pizza
place, but not under the
Angelos name. He could
not provide more details
on what that restaurant
would be as of Tuesday.
We hope to not leave
the community foodless,
he said.

When the swimmers
flew off the blocks at the
start of the race, Dobrinsky stayed on the hip of
Stumpf for the first 700
yards, a strategy coach Jim
Lohmeier discussed with
Dobrinsky before the race.
Both swimmers were on
a personal best pace that
would eventually crush
their qualifying times.
Coming into the wall
after 700 yards behind
Stumpf, Dobrinsky accelerated out of her flip turn
and within 10 meters
pulled a half body length
ahead of Stumpf.
Dobrinsky turned on her

pulling away from Stumpf
and came home in 1:10.71,

By John Wells
Special to the Observer

John Beale won the Badgerland Challenge for the Late Models
while Jason Thoma (Sportsman),
Lyle Phillips (Bandits), Tyler Spiegel (6Shooters), and Trevor Chilson
(6Shooters) also took home checkered flags. The fans were also treated to the world famous Doug Rose
and his Green Mamba Jet Car that

incinerated a car.
Beale survived numerous late
race restarts and led wire to wire to
take home the checkered flag in the
30-lap Badgerland Challenge for the
NASCAR Club LaMark Late Models last week at Madison International Speedway.

Thoma cruises
Jason Thoma picked up his second win of the season in the Daves
White Rock Sportsman 20-lap main
Steve Anderson was the fastest
qualifier with a lap of 19.889 (90.502
mph). Robert Hansberry Jr. won the

RA Heating and Air Conditioning

Dash for the fifth time this season.
Heat races were won by Johnny
Robinson II and Ryan Goldade.

Phillips best of the Bandits

Lyle Phillips led wire to wire to
pick up the victory in the Pellitteri
Waste Systems Bandits 20-lap feature event.
Phillips maintained his lead on the
restart with Nick Schmidt up to second running on the outside of Steve
Dickson with Brandon DeLacy joining the mix.
On lap 8, Ronnie Coppernoll
moved past James Junget for the

fifth spot. Phillips continued to lead

at the half-way mark as Dickson
and Schmidt raced side by side for
second as the field started to catch
lapped traffic.
That same lapped traffic forced
Schmidt to slow allowing Dickson
to take second and close on Phillips.
Phillips was able to work his way
past the lapped cars to pick up his
second win of the season. Dickson,
Schmidt, DeLacy, and Coppernoll
rounded out the top five.

upkeep including snow plowing
and pavement work to the village, will allow village officials
to be more responsive to resident concerns on roads. In the
past, Bollig explained, if someone called the village about the
roads, that official would call
the county highway department,
which then had to find room in
its budget for any needed repairs.
This way we can react to
roads in our own capital plan,
he said. Going forward, all we
have to do is make sure we maintain the roads that we take over
now. We should never have to
deal with roads like this again.
County Executive Joe Parisi
and village officials praised the
cooperation between the two in a
news release.
This partnership is a needed
investment into our infrastructure that will make our roads safer, Parisi said. The agreement
is a common sense approach to
streamline and improve services.
I am happy to once again team
up with the Village of Oregon to
improve infrastructure.
Reconstruction of the roads
will include removing all existing pavement, two feet of excavation between the curb and gutter, installing a new base material and new paved asphalt surface.
The projects will also include
spot curb and gutter replacement, and could also serve as an
opportunity for water main work
by the village.
(The agreement) means that

of knowing that well be taking

be relatively maintenance free,
which is huge, Bollig said.

From left, Lily Frank (with her rescue pet), Lexi Tiedt, Joel Hermanson, Alec Head and Tyler Head didnt let the weather stop them from raising
money for the Dane County Human Society, working through rain and hot, humid weather on Aug. 2.

Sweet relief

Kids set up lemonade stand to raise money for humane society

Selling ice cold lemonade on some of the
hottest days of 2016? Thats just smart.
Giving all the money to the local humane
society? Thats just sweet.
A group of kids in the Rome Corners Intermediate School neighborhood hosted a lemonade stand from Aug. 2-3 at Bethel Greenacre Park to raise money for the Dane County
Humane Society.
Lily Frank, an incoming seventh-grader at
Oregon Middle School, said the group has

done lemonade stand sales the past two years,

benefiting UW Childrens Hospital and the
Oregon Area Food Pantry, and thought the
humane society would be a good charity to
give the money to this time.
We wanted to help, she said.
Not even a cloudburst or two could keep
them away from the stand on Tuesday afternoon, as cars regularly pulled up for refreshment. Lexi Tiedt, another OMS seventh-grader, said the group was prepared for wet

weather, setting up by the nearby park shelter.

When it rained, we just packed up and
went in, and went it stopped, we came right
back out, she said.
Tyler Head, who will be a fifth-grader at
RCI next month, said he hoped to raise a lot
of money for the cause.
It feels really good to put this on for everybody else who actually needs it, he said.

Fall: Board supports referendum in November, using fund balance to help cover initial cost
In that two years, the
district took more feedback and altered the plan.
As recently as July, board
members offered slight
changes to the proposal that
a committee of teachers and
administrators had created
earlier this year.
The likely proposal will
now ask voters to approve
$1.5 million in recurring
money added to the districts budget to fund the
plan. Under the proposal
supported by board members, the district would also
use $1.5 million from the
fund balance to fund the
other half of the $3 million
total cost. The board would
have to approve that use
of fund balance at its next
That plan was favored
heavily in recent focus
groups held for teachers to
give feedback on the altered
plans, according to a document prepared by Donovan
ahead of Mondays meeting.
Across all four focus
groups, no participants
indicated their support for
option #1, Donovan wrote
of the original option the
committee recommended.
While there was limited support for option #2,

In brief
Board members expressed support for Option 3
referendum proposal, which would be $1.5 million recurring
They also supported the idea of going to referendum
in November to maximize turnout
Formal vote is expected at the Aug. 22 meeting,
along with vote on using $1.5 million from districts fund
balance to cover $3 million initial cost
option #3 was by far the
most popular option. Several described option #3
as being the most fair for
beginning educators.
The three options differ
in how quickly teachers
would receive raises.
Options 1 and 2, while
offering a yearly $1,000
raise to teachers early in
their career, would actually pay them less over five
years than the Option 3,
which offers no raises but a
higher starting salary.
According to documents
from the July 11 board
meeting packet, Options 2
and 3 have a higher initial
cost, at $2.9 and $3 million,
respectively, compared to
the $1.7 million Option 1,
but about half of the annual
OSD human resources

director Jina Jonen, who

was part of the committee
that came up with the original recommendation, said
they recommended option 1
because they did not expect
to have district funds other
than the referendum money.
Option 2 and 3 is much
closer to where we wanted to be as a committee, Jonen said. We just
werent working under the
assumption that we had district funds to invest.
Donovan also reported that those in the focus
groups said something
needed to be done on teacher compensation, and that
the split between referendum and district funding
would show the community
was in the effort together.
A recurring referendum
would allow the district to

exceed its annual revenue

cap each year indefinitely,
unless a time period were
specified in the referendum
The board would have
to approve language to go
on the November ballot
by Aug. 29, so if there are
any lingering doubts Aug.
22, it could schedule a special meeting between those
dates to give final approval.
The plan supported by
board members during the
discussion would include
four tiers of teachers and
s a l a r y l eve l s b a s e d o n
their experience in the district. Teachers in years one
through five would be in
the green level; six to 10
the orange; 11 or more
blue; and those designated as lead educators
would be in the purple level.
Within each tier, teachers would make a different
base amount based on their
level of education, with a
masters or National Board
Certification increasing the
pay by $4,000.
One remaining point
of discussion will be the
length of the proposed probationary period for new
teachers. Its written into
the compensation plan as
five years, but the employee
handbook also discussed

at Monday nights meeting states it is two years.

Some board members
expressed their preference
for the two-year period.
(Five years of probation)
really deters them from
buying a house, having
kids, making a future in this
district, said Krista Flanagan.
Board member Gwen
Maitzen said she had been

very, very nervous earlier

this year about the chances
of getting the referendum
on the November ballot.
Im very pleased were
at a point where we can
actually go forward with
this, Maitzen said.

Fourth of July parade
Oregons Merri-Hill neighborhood held its 22nd
annual Fourth of July parade, in which residents set out
lawn chairs on the street and, this year, tossed candy to
kids participating in the parade instead of the other way
around. Some neighbors put out sprinklers into the street
for parade participants to cool off, and the Oregon police
and fire departments also made a cameo.
