It’s a clear choice

Millions are being spent on political ads. So much in fact, that this election will be the most expensive mid-term election in history. It’s become painful to watch television with the almost constant bombardment of ads. Most of us don’t even bother to answer the telephone. Yet this year is probably the easiest to make your choice. Thanks to the […]

Tory says Dupler needs to honor his commitments on fire contract

Editor: Nearly 100 residents felt they had to attend Tuesday night’s Walnut Township Trustees meeting because of something Trustee President Sonny Dupler put on the agenda. The second item under Old Business read, “Amend motion of 4-year contract and binding arbitrator from 10/5 meeting.” For those of you who were not at the Oct. 5 meeting (never mind why we […]

Wells says the village prefers ‘to kill the messenger’

Editor: The Buckeye Lake Council President read a prepared statement at this week’s council meeting asking for support of commission members and scolding “naysayers” and the “negative press.” She said voters made a choice at the last election for “positive” leadership. It seems a history lesson is needed to remind her that our country was founded on a set of […]

Mother says team mom wears blinders

Editor: I would like to respond to Stephanie Little, the woman that lives with blinders on. I didn’t insinuate that the entire football team is responsible for what happened to my son. But there are a few of the boys on the team that are responsible. I don’t doubt some of the boys are good kids but not ALL of […]

Writer urges others to speak out against harassment at school

Editor: I am writing in response to the appalling letter by “Team Mother” Stephanie Little in response to the letter that Penny Arnett submitted several weeks ago. I am flabbergasted by this response. Mrs. Arnett is pointing out the disturbing fact that no official at Millersport High School seems to be interested in solving the bullying issues that have been […]

Mother wants her daughter’s title back

Editor: It’s a shame it has come down to this. My daughter was crowned Miss Baltimore in August only for it to be ripped away from her within a little over a month. She only did what Pageant Director Jacque Keller told her to do — represent the Baltimore Festival around Ohio at different festivals. My daughter traveled to nearly […]

Golden Grains

HEBRON – Golden grains of corn are quite a bit more golden this year. Corn prices are up about 70 percent from May. Cash prices Tuesday in Central Illinois were $5.4750 a bushel compared to $3.48 a bushel last year. Some analysts expect prices to continue to increase, perhaps even testing the record high of $7.65 per bushel in 2008. […]

Council can’t see the lot for the parking spaces

BUCKEYE LAKE – Buckeye Lake Village’s attorney doesn’t believe an alleged parking lot in a residential area along Anchors Way is a violation of the village’s zoning code, but not everyone’s convinced. Former Buckeye Lake Village Council member Peggy Wells alleged that Buckeye Lake Planning Commission Chair Karen Cookston created a parking lot on adjoining lots she owns on Anchors […]
