Peggy Ann Bowyer (Young) lived a long life and devoted herself to raising her children through various bumps, bruises, and more than a few broken limbs.

Letter from Mayor Johnson: It has been a very challenging and interesting year

2021 is right around the corner and the village is optimistic and hopeful that we will continue to make Bluffton successful and prosperous.

To each and every one of you in the Village of Bluffton:

Here we are almost in the end of 2020. It has been a very challenging and interesting year to say the least. No matter what each of us faced in our personal lives or professionals lives, basically covid-19 consumed our lives, for the majority of 2020. I believe I can speak for most, to say this was something never experienced in our lifetime, and never want to experience again.


Letter: Presidential transition needed to protect America

The election is over, and President Trump lost

Icon viewers:
President Trump is trying to steal the election.

He's making false claims of fraud and refusing to help the transition to President-Elect Biden. That transition process should include briefings for President-Elect Biden  on national security and on the federal response to the pandemic, among other issues. President Trump is blocking those briefings.

The losers here are the American people.
