Letters: Looking for photo of Richland Township Hall in Beaverdam

Icon viewers:

I would like to know if anyone has a copy of the old Richland Township Hall that was located in Beaverdam.  The only picture that I have does not have the bell tower.

I would appreciate any help that you or anyone else might be able to give me
on this.

Letter: What very few fans knew about the 1958 BHS football team - scouts

Fred
I enjoyed Ron Habegger's perspective on the 1958 BHS football team… he was right “we were making memories.”

What he didn’t say was that this team was considered (in 1958) one of the best BHS football teams ever. This was a time before there were state rankings or a playoff system. There were less then 30 members on the team which, required starters to go both ways, but there was a lot of depth in positions and everyone played.

Letter: What Bluffton pizza shop had "dots" on the side flaps?

Icon viewers:

A Facebook conversation about former Bluffton pizza places had me wondering: Can we come up with a list of names and locations from the past 20 or 30 years? 

Aside from Pisanello's, Domino's, and That 50's Place, a few others have been mentioned -- some of which I remember, others I am not so sure (KZ? Mr. B's?). 

In particular, I've been trying to come up with the name of a pizza place from the mid-1980s that had "dots" on the side flaps of the box, which you could collect to earn a free pizza.

With great interest I read in the Ebenezer Mennonite church bulletin (now called, Ebenezer Emissary) that the Ebenezer Church in its recent Missionary Conference surpassed the $250,000 goal for the 2014 Missionary Budget by $5,000.
