Lighten up: Trying to survive the annual back-to-school shopping

Every fall, here they come, with shining brown eyes and lists as long as Santa Claus’s. Visions of glossy backpacks, expensive shoes and 64-packs of Crayolas – built-in sharpener included – dance in their heads. These two kids need more school supplies and clothes for one year than I needed in my entire academic life. College included. My checkbook and […]

‘We must fix these problems and we must do it now’

Editor: Let me start by saying that I have never trashed a military recruitment center or blocked any shipments of military equipment. I have never approved of such behavior in anyone, including Democrats. In fact, it has been my practice to write a respectful letter to my elected officials when I have an opinion about an issue. I learned this […]

Writers credit programs for keeping them in their home

Editor: We are supporting Licking County Senior Citizens Levy. We could not be in our home without Passport and the (Licking County) Aging Program. We are both in wheelchairs and have cerebral palsy. My husband is going blind. The Aging Program comes to our house and does our laundry, dishes, dusts, mops, and gives baths to my husband. We cannot […]


The Ohio State School for the Blind is not officially associated with The Ohio State University as was inferred in last week’s cover story. Last week’s report on candidates for the Nov. 3 election left out Shawn M. Wharton as a candidate for Northern Local School Board and failed to identify Richard France as an incumbent on that school board.

Editor: Kirkersville Village Council most recently met on Sept. 2. Carolyn Woods gave the finance report stating that she was the finance chair since she took Erika Mudd’s place on council. Woods reported that the finance committee has given authority to the Village Clerk to pay the bills as long as they don’t go over an ‘unusual amount.’ The Flying […]

Thanks for Sweet Corn Festival help

Editor: The Millersport Athletic Boosters would like to THANK all of the parents, coaches, school administration, student athletes and volunteers who helped to make this a successful Sweet Corn Festival. We couldn’t do it without all of you. Also a special thanks to a few who happened to be there for most of the hours of operation, who really didn’t […]

Another Letter: ‘Facts, ideas and rational discussion are irrelevant…’

Editor: How audacious of Vickie Fogarty to compare Charles Prince to a dining room table (Letters to the Editor, August 29th) After all, he’s only parroting Rush Limbaugh whose diatribes on health care and environment read like a page from the Nazi playbook of the 30’s and 40’s. To paraphrase Hermann Goering: “People can be made to do the will […]

August 28 was a special night

Editor: There are times when everything seems right with the world and life is good. Friday, August 28, 2009, was one of those evenings. The new track at Millersport High School was dedicated and named after long time track coach Ken Keener. There are too many people to thank individually for making the event and the track possible, but I […]

Myer seeking township trustee post

Editor: As a candidate for Thorn Township trustees, it has been gratifying to have been told by friends, neighbors and acquaintances that I have their support. I don’t intend to let them down! Being a retired school principal, I have the time and experience to be an effective trustee. Having been the township’s fiscal officer, I have a good understanding […]
