Thank you Icon for allowing me to post a few days ago about my big missing tire, as ridiculous as it sounded (Who takes a big tire?) .
This morning I received a phone call from Lynda Best who saw the ad on your site. Her and her husband found the tire ditched in the weeds behind their house and were not sure what to do with it.

Jeanne's Kitchen shared this letter she received from three Bluffton University students earlier this spring.
We were so happy that we were finally able to have lunch at your kitchen. Thank you so much for giving us the blueberry cobbler for dessert! It summed up our entire college career and truely showed what Bluffton really about!

Thank you so much for allowing us to attend the Bluffton Arts and Craft Show. We had a very good time and made a tad bit of money as well! We wanted to let you know that we were very impressed with the town, the people, and the atmosphere! Bluffton was clean and beautiful, the people were very friendly and kind, and the atmosphere was festive and charming. This is not our normal experience at all craft shows, so we were very plesently surprised and wanted to let you know. Thank you again for the pleasent experience!

I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy the Icon. I left Bluffton for good back in 1976, after my last summer working at the Beaverdam Truck Stop.
In the years that followed, I kept track of goings on in my home town through my parents and my brother John, who still lived there. With the passing of all three of them, I lost track of what was happening other than snippets I learned when I was in contact with old friends. How wonderful to be able to log onto the Icon and catch up.

Why aren't there lights for the basketball courts at the Buckeye Park? It looks like it is set up to house lights since they have poles and the electrical work inside of the poles but someone took them out.
One way to keep kids out of trouble and healthy is to keep them occupied with activities such as basketball. In the summer and spring it becomes impossible to play basketball when the sun sets even though that is the best time to play.

Why is Harmon Field locked up? The gates should be locked open so people can use the field to walk or whatever. I think people don't know that it was given to the Village of Bluffton and the school took care of it. Seems to me the caretaker has locked out the owner!!!

The month of April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month in the United States. The goal of Sexual Assault Awareness Month is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence.
This April communities across the country are proclaiming "It's time ... to talk about it!" Let's be honest, "it" is not an easy subject to talk about.

Dear Mr. Mehaffie:

Village of Bluffton
Dear Mr. Mehaffie:
I have been to your office and I have talked to you on the phone. I am afraid that I have not communicated effectively. I often have difficulty in face to face conversations. I do not know if I am ill prepared or that it just takes too much time for me to consider the other's response.

In the Lima News lately Fred Steiner mentioned the "phony storefronts, trying to be a village" in towns other than Bluffton. I want to second the challenge to phoniness, by asking our friends right here for real honesty.
I went to our Community Market, whose manager and employees are both helpful and kind, to buy their advertised crab cakes, and hoped for information on a label about ingredients. Would crab be a minor part?
