Each year, over 800 law enforcement volunteers (Guardians of the Flame) and Special Olympics Oregon athletes relay the Flame of Hope torch throughout Oregon to the Summer State Games in Newberg to raise awareness of and funds for Special Olympics Oregon. The revenue raised through LETR supports the athletes of Special Olympics Oregon in their training, uniforms, transportation, as well as supports the competitions in which they compete. Participating on behalf of the Lake Oswego Police Department were Detective Lee Ferguson, Officer Dawn Pecoraro, Assistant to the Police Chief Julia Warren, and Citizen Information Specialist Bonnie Hirshberger.

NEW CITY MANAGER Continued from page 1 BLOWERS, MOWERS AND OTHER NOISE There’s nothing quite as annoying as having your relaxing space invaded by the unwanted sounds of the neighbor’s leaf blowers, lawn mowers or any number of other loud, disturbing sounds. In the summer, the City receives many noise complaints - many of which result in Police response. Remember, it is your responsibility to take whatever steps are needed to mitigate the effects your actions have on others. A good way to think about the noise is to ask yourself “is the noise I’m creating causing someone else to be impacted?” Although your noise might be perfectly reasonable, the neighbors around you may be trying to sleep or trying to enjoy their own space. If you have questions, we may be able to assist you, please call the Citizen Information Center at 503-635-0257. Information about the City’s noise ordinance can be found in Chapter 34, Article 34.10, available online at www. codepublishing.com/or/lakeoswego.
