Some businesses shortchanged by parade


The Buckeye Lake Library’s Memorial Day parade Saturday in Buckeye Lake was a disgrace to some local businesses.

One more Letter: Put the blame where it belongs


How can Buckeye Lake Village Council and some residents put the blame for the levy defeat on The Beacon and “ilk.” They need to open their eyes and look in the mirror. Who decided to put the “no water bill” on us? Who wouldn’t let us vote on it? So we are now paying it on our taxes and have […]
