Letter: Athletic Boosters say thanks to reverse raffle supporters

Icon viewers:

The Bluffton Athletic Boosters just concluded their annual Reverse Raffle and would like to take a moment to thank all that contributed to its success.  Many individuals and businesses made this year’s raffle another huge success. 

Whether you purchased a ticket, or donated a product, service, or your valuable time, we cannot thank you enough.  The Reverse Raffle couldn’t be effective without the help of all the volunteers. 

We look forward to seeing everyone at next year’s raffle.

Letters: Dog walkers mind your manners on Augsburger Bike Path

 Icon viewers:

Today I walked a partial stretch of the Augsburger Bike Path, picking up trash. In the walk I picked up a plastic bag having dog poop in it, tossed a ways into the woods. 

My message is: dog walkers we are glad they like the path, but please mind your manners when it comes to carrying your dog's "stuff" to the nearest trash can.  We live here!

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.
