Congratulations to State Senator David Long for having the courage and wisdom to withdraw Senate Bill 225 from consideration in this session of the General Assembly. His charter government bill (which would have mandated Allen County to study local government, propose a structure and conduct a referendum) needed more time for comments and revisions than was available during this year's short session.

The passage of S.B. 223, another bill sponsored by Senator Long, ensures that the structure...

Have you ever been tangled up with the problem of plastic bags stuck in trees? As I traveled around the Waynedale area I noticed the many plastic bags flapping by their handles from the branches of trees, waving in the breeze and out of reach. Noticing should lead to removing those bags and other debris, especially this time of the year. Spring cleanup is a dirty job — but someone's gotta do it.

An Irishwoman says that in Ireland bags in trees are known as "Witches' Knickers"or as we call it...

As great as first dates are, I don't think I'd want to relive one over and over again. There's the whole butterfly in the stomach thing, the shyness and awkwardness. Then there's the age-old question of whether or not it is appropriate to kiss on the first date. A first date is something to go through once and laugh about many times.

Arby's has the bestest fish sandwiches of...

Dear Miss Butcher,

Although I enjoy reading the various reviews that you have written in The Waynedale News, I was very impressed with your latest review of the "Passion of Christ".

Best of luck in your future education and I hope you find time to continue your writing. I look forward to reading more of your works as time goes...

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY YA'LL

 

As my dad would say, "I'm of Irish distraction." I'm one of those people who doesn't believe in calling myself anything but an American. I'm an American and proud of the fact. I'm not Irish American (I wasn't born in Ireland); I'm plain old American. Ok, So I was born in the mountains of West Virginia to a family with a proud Irish last name. Some people think of my home state as another country any way so I may be an American 'Hill Billy' but I'm a proud...
