Levy supporter up for debate

Editor: This is in response to Dave Kenmir’s letter last week. The Lancer Pride Committee is truly grateful for your input. We need to know why the public votes “NO” on the school levy. Without this information we are not able to dispel the myths and rumors that have infected the community. Mr. Kenmir protested about the cuts in pay […]

Students plead for levy approval

Editor: As students at Lakewood High School, this levy is very important to us. The fate of this levy is the fate of our future.

We […]

Sam returns to family

Editor: Several weeks ago I wrote concerning the killing of one of God’s most beautiful creatures, a Mute Swan, that chose to live on Buckeye Lake.

We’ll always support school levies

Editor: This is in response to Dave Kenmir’s letter last week. We are a couple in our mid 70’s living on a fixed income with no yearly increases yet we would never vote against a levy for an excellent, responsible school district. I assume Mr. Kenmir and his family were educated by a public school system as we were. He […]

Township lists tentative summer road projects

JACKSONTOWN – Speeds won’t be coming down on Licking Trails Road, Licking Township Trustee Dave Miller told Jon Lynch Monday night. Last month Lynch asked trustees to slow down traffic on the road.
