Seniors, watch out for asphalt scam

Guest Column:

I want to warn readers about an asphalt paving scam. The company is Asphalt Construction with a P.O. Box at Buckeye Lake. A Mr. B of this company approached my elderly parents on Monday, claiming to have some leftover asphalt from the Ohio 256 resurfacing project at a great price. Instead of the usual $30 per square yard, he would […]

Buckeye Lake EMS thanked



Editor: This letter is long overdue and I apologize for my negligence. However, with the looming Fire DepartmentlLevy, I feel compelled to share this information with our community. My mother came to stay at my home in June to recover from knee replacement surgery. On June 22, I awoke to find my mother unresponsive. I immediately called 911. Before I […]

Voting place changes are disturbing



Editor: The recent change of polling locations for Buckeye Lake is surprising, if not disturbing. It does not seem reasonable that the board of elections would make such a change without communicating with local officials let alone not take a survey of the voting public. I care not that I could vote at the church nearby, but it certainly puts […]

Hupp, VanBuren supported for trustee



Editor: My vote is precious. My vote is valuable. Some candidates, or supporters of candidates, want to tell us why we should NOT vote for another. We don’t need to hear this. We don’t need someone thinking for us. We need a candidate who will tell us why they DESERVE our vote. We need a candidate who will show us […]

More thanks for church donation



Editor, I really like our new church building in Millersport. It’s a nice building! It’s a lot bigger than when we were meeting at the school. We don’t have to tear stuff down and put it away anymore. It would be nice if Charlie could come and take some pictures if he has time. I’ve been going to Millersport Covenant […]

More support for Hupp, VanBuren



Editor: ‘Trustees at Work’ is the sign that I proudly display in my front yard for all to see on US 40 in Brownsville. Trustees Dan VanBuren and Ben Hupp are the two incumbents running for re-election for Bowling Green Township Trustee on Nov. 5. VanBuren and Hupp have proven to be valuable assets to our community. They do 99% […]

Trustee vote important for township’s future



Editor: I want to thank the Dogwood Lakes and Somerset Road area residents for their patience with the inconvenience created by our Bowling Green Township resurfacing project. By working hard to maximize evaluation points, we were finally awarded an Ohio Public Works Commission grant which made this project possible. Past grant applications failed due to a lack of study, cooperation […]
