Thank you to the Village and its employees

To the Village and it's employees -

I just wanted to say a big "Thank You" for the impressively quick work the workers employed by the Village did yesterday morning.  A handful of Geiger Street residents woke up without running water yesterday (Tuesday, Aug. 13), and the Village was already on the scene at 7 a.m. The broken water line was repaired and finished by 10 a.m. I couldn't be more impressed with the level of efficiency and service provided. 

Thank you,

Liz Gordon-Hancock, Geiger Street resident


Letter: It's an honor serving as a Bluffton school board member

It has truly been an honor serving as a Bluffton School board member for the past 11.5 years. 

I will finish my current term in December, I have enjoyed every minute of my three terms.  We have an amazing community that supports not only their own children, but all children in the district. 

We have custodians, cafeteria ladies, classroom helpers, bus drivers, secretaries and teachers that consider their positions at Bluffton far more than just a job, but a calling. 


Letter: More about the "Doug Smith" house

I just finished reading an article on Google featuring Dan and Lauren Newkirk.

Bluffton and "old Doug Smith house" caught my attention.

That would be to us the old Harry and Hilda Klay home. Doug married their
daughter, Rosemary, and later inherited the home. Harry was my mother's cousin.
We hold a Stepleton/Klay reunion every year at the Sportsman's Club in
