Letter: Library trustees express support for reinstallation of traffic signal at Main and College

January 24, 2023 

To Whom It May Concern, 

In light of renewed community concerns about pedestrian safety at the intersection of College Avenue and Main Street, the members of the Bluffton Library Board would like to publicly express our support for a traffic signal at that intersection. We applaud the past efforts of Paula Scott and others who have diligently worked to improve the situation. However, we believe that the return of a traffic signal is the safest solution. On behalf of our patrons and other community members, we fully support any efforts to reinstall a traffic light at this intersection. 

Thank you, 

Members of the Bluffton Library Board 

Robert Beer, President 

Nancy Yeager, Vice President 

Carrie Phillips, Secretary 

Amy Mikesell 

Robert Scott

Letter: Bells ring again at Trinity, Jenera

We live in an era when many churches have elected to remove their bells due to the expense of maintaining them.  Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church's bells at 301 North Main Street, Jenera, have sadly been silent for almost a year because they, too, needed serious repair.  The church council chose to restore them and they rang on Sunday to announce the beginning of the church services as they have for 133 years. 


Letter: Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision

To the Editor:

Just because the Roe vs. Wade decision has been struck down by the Supreme Court does not mean that it will eliminate abortions. It only means that many abortions will be relegated to unhealthy self-attempts or back-alley butchers, which was the case prior to Roe.


Letter: U.S. Senate candidates

To the editor:

A few years back I read JD Vance’s book, Hillbilly Elegy, and found it very interesting.  But now as he is framing himself as an opponent of the “elites,” I believe that Mr. Vance has forgotten his working class roots.
