With a larger government there is too much “red tape” for it to be effective, and it becomes less efficient and more unreliable as it expands in size and scope. Many lives could have been spared if the poor of New Orleans had heeded the warning and left before the storm struck rather than sit and wait for their faulty government to save them. What we really need is more personal responsibility and far less government interference in our lives.
Big thanks goes out to volunteers with Vernon Township for responding
Words cannot begin to express our gratitude and appreciation for the wonderful volunteers of the Vernon Township rescue squad and fire department. Their immediate response to our emergency on Jan. 25 was instrumental in the speedy transport to Columbus, and it was the main contributing factor to our father's survival and recovery.
Clyde Greathouse has made remarkable progress, is well on his way to complete recovery and is eager to get back to work.
Thank you for the continued prayers and support expressed by our friends these past two weeks.
Landlords should shoulder costs of city Rental Licensing Program
Hats off to Mayor Jim Kalb regarding his endeavor to institute a Rental Licensing Program. The program should help to clean up the deplorable conditions that exist in our city. There should be no increase in our taxes. Costs would be charged to the landlords only. The program, as instituted by Mayor Kalb, would generate revenue to our city.
City Council should act on this as soon as possible.
Mary Webb, GRI Landlord
