Letter: Bluffton has no "state law yield to pedestrian" signs

Icon viewers:

There are no "end of school zones" signs on Main Street. No "state law yield to pedestrian" signs placed in the middle of the road at a crosswalk. Lima Senior has them both.

Letter: A word from director of Ohio Humanities

Icon viewers:
    
By now, I'm sure you have heard from various sources that the White House plans to balance the federal budget by eliminating several agencies, including the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

As I write, Congress is finalizing a budget for 2017, which includes a significant increase for NEH. However, we do anticipate that the President's budget proposal for 2018 will include proposals to defund these three agencies, among others.

Letter: An open letter to the Village of Bluffton

From Jamie Mehaffie

An Open Letter to the Village of Bluffton:

For the past 13 years, I have had the esteemed pleasure to serve the residents and businesses of the Village of Bluffton in the role as Village Administrator.

In that time, I had the great fortune of working with some incredibly dedicated public servants that take great pride in the quality services that they provide to this community. They truly are wonderful people that care about this community and I will forever cherish the time that I had with them and the good that we accomplished for the community.

Letter: Writer urges council to support resolution for bike route

Icon viewers:

Imagine there was a way to encouraging tourists to travel directly through Bluffton, and having them go by our restaurants and services.  Tourists and travelers - whether they are daytrippers or coming from a long-distance - bring economic growth and vitality.  Who wouldn't encourage that kind of activity in the village we are so proud of, especially if it had the potential to benefit our community?

Letter: Writer concerned about Ohio "heartbeat bill"

Dear Governor Kasich:

I understand you are considering the “heartbeat bill” which would ban abortions in the State of Ohio after 6-8 weeks, or when an embryo’s heartbeat can be detected.

I have learned that an embryo’s heartbeat can be heard only with ultrasound equipment or a fetal Doppler, both available from an obstetrician. A pregnant woman can use a stethoscope, but only much later (18-20 weeks) in a pregnancy.
