The year was 1973

We know this much: PK lives in Hancock County. What we don't know is this: was PK born in 1973 or is PK a 1973 graduate of Cory-Rawson?

A Wyandot County Mason

RWB JZ

We found this plate in the parking lot of Community Market. Must be a Mason from Wyandot County.

Section: 

Could be a street address

445 WS

We've never seen this plate before. Looks like a street address and the resident of the house has the initials WS. That's our best guess.

Detour to where?

2 DETOUR

Sometimes you can figure out license plate meanings by initials, or numbers, but this one's curious. What does it mean? We're working on it but aren't getting anywhere.

Could this be a sentence?

GBPNCPL

Certainly this is one of the longest cryptic license plates that we've ever seen. Any viewer who knows its meaning, please share it with us.

Icon supporter of the year

Lucia Unrau Icon supporter of the year

Lucia Unrau was selected as the first-ever Bluffton Icon Supporter of the Year award. The selection committee had a difficult decision-making process. Several worthy supporters were also in the running, including Jodi Diller (first runner-up) and Bev Amstutz (second runner-up). Lucia will receive a free cup of coffee from the Common Groups and a 15-minutes with interview later in January.

North Carolina on Albert Street

NC plate on Albert Street

Among the many Christmas weekend guests to Bluffton was the driver of this vehicle parked in a driveway on Albert Street. The NC plate promotes the Blue Ridge Parkway, a major tourist feature on the western portion of the state.

Heidelberg connection

QUADS

QUADS showed up in Bluffton on Dec. 29. It was parked on Elm Street near the town hall. Perhaps its driver was taking in a dinner on Main Street. QUADS is a Hancock County plate with a Heidelberg College logo on the plate. Readers are invited to help us identify the driver.

The veteran

194XWW

All we can tell you about this plate is that it belongs to a World War II veteran who lives in Allen County.

Section: 

It must belong to Karim Awad

It belongs to Karim Award

We spied this plate in front of the Award residence on Dec. 26. Knowing that Karim lives in Connecticut, we naturally figured it's his. To get the full impact of this plate, read the "61 minutes with Ben Luginbuhl."
