Oregon, OH changes name

5 Jan, 2015

Oregon, Ohio changes its name temporarily to “Oregon, Ohio Buckeyes on the Bay, City of Duck Hunters” following a petition on from Matt Squibb and Mark Rabbitt, who ask that the town show support for the Ohio State Buckeyes against the Oregon Ducks in the College Football Playoff National Championship. City proclamation:

Whereas, the City of Oregon officially adopted its name in 1838 as Oregon Township which happens to be 21 years before the State of Oregon received its statehood in 1859. And The City of Oregon has been petitioned by residents of the city to make it clear that we are not associated with Oregon University Ducks Football.
