The overnight event attracted some 150 walkers, run- ners, supporters and cancer survivors, who kicked off the fundraiser with a Survivor's Lap. An enthusiastic Ella Strehle, 6, and Kayley Kovar, 5, above, quickly turned the charity event into a footrace, while others, at left, took a more leisurely approach. "It's all about finishing the fight against cancer," said Jen Casson, 2014 event chairperson. It's official: Letter carriers will now deliver to Oakwood, Ohio The city of Oakwood has obtained approval from the U.S. Postal Service to begin using "Oakwood, Ohio" as the pre- ferred last line on the official mailing address. This changes a longstanding policy under which Oakwood residents and businesses were directed by the U.S. Postal Service to use "Dayton, Ohio" as the last line of the mailing address. Effective immediately, Oakwood residents and busi- nesses may begin using Oakwood, Ohio, followed by the appropriate zip code (45409 or 45419) on the last line for all incoming and outgoing postal mailings. While the U.S. Postal Service will now recognize "Oakwood, Ohio" as the pre- ferred last line, it will still deliv- er Oakwood mail if "Dayton, Ohio" is used. Over the years, residents occasionally asked if they could use "Oakwood, Ohio" on their address. "I think it's a mat- ter of community pride", said City Manager Norbert Klopsch. "We appreciate the U.S. Postal Service approving this change."

All three administrators will receive 11 paid holidays annually under the terms of their contracts. Board members also approved a slate of athletic and advisory supplemental contracts, includ See Board on page 3 u
