Syd Dorn named Chamber president

DORNLongtime Lake Oswego auto broker Syd Dorn has been named president of the Lake Oswego Chamber of Commerce, two months earlier than expected.

Citing numerous business and family demands, Chamber President Blake Zoglman resigned his position last week. Per the Chamber's rules of succession, Dorn — who was the president-elect — took office immediately and will now serve an extended term.

Dorn and his wife, Sherry, have lived in Lake Oswego for nearly 35 years. He has served on the Chamber's Board of Directors for six years and is also active in the Lake Oswego Rotary Club. An Oregon native and graduate of the University of Oregon, Dorn served five years in the U.S. Air Force before starting his automotive career and, for the past 16 years, offering his customers “a Dorn good deal” through his auto brokerage.

Suspect tied to fraud at LO Verizon store

HERRERA-CEDANOTualatin Police responding to reports of possible identity fraud at a Verizon Wireless store last week arrested a man they now believe is responsible for a similar incident in Lake Oswego on the same day.

An employee at the Tualatin store on Hazel Fern Road told officers on May 5 that a man was trying to buy four iPhone 6 Plus phones using someone else's name and account information. When police arrived, the man initially gave them someone else's name and identification card, but police were eventually able to identify him as 37-year-old Estifany Herrera-Cedano of New York.

Herrera-Cedano was arrested and charged with first degree theft and identity theft.

During their investigation, police were also able to recover evidence that tied Herrera-Cedano to a similar incident at the Lake Oswego Verizon Wireless store on Monroe Parkway earlier the same day involving four additional iPhone 6 Plus phones. Herrera-Cedano was issued a citation for first degree theft and identity theft for the crimes at the Lake Oswego location; he was booked into the Washington County Jail on the charges stemming from the Tualatin incident.

Police believe Herrera-Cedano may have been involved in a similar crime in Utah and that there are possibly additional victims locally. Anyone with information about the crimes is asked to call Officer Jack Rose with the Tualatin Police Department at 503-691-4800.

High school soloists bring home state honors

Several local students placed during the annual state musical soloist championships. At the Oregon School Activities Association event on April 30, students from Lake Oswego and Lakeridge high schools placed in the top four in several categories.

At Lakeridge High School, winners included:

• Spencer Schaffer, first in trombone;

• Louis Bourque, second in bassoon;

• Owen Kaufmann, second in high saxophone;

• Caroline Haroldson, fourth in alto voice;

• Harrison Schaffer, fourth in bass violin; and

• Thomas Rodenkirch, fourth in tuba.

At Lake Oswego High School, winners included:

• Anna Louise Martin, first in soprano voice; and

• Talia Dugan, second in clarinet.

Martin says this was a great way to end her senior year and that participating in A Cappella and Windjammers helped her grow.

“I’m able to work well with other musicians and we’re able to collaborate to create something so amazing, and that’s what I loved about being in choir at Lake Oswego,” says Martin, who plans to student vocal performance at DePauw University in the fall.
