GOP Congress needs to take next step away from climate denial

To the Editor:

There was a vote in the U.S. Senate last week regarding climate change and its causes. An overwhelming majority agreed climate change is not a hoax and poses a serious threat globally.

There’s some very good reasons to build a sidewalk on Rt. 682

To the Editor:

Due to recent and potential increases of pedestrian traffic, I would like to propose that a sidewalk be built on Ohio Rt. 682 between West Union and University Estates Boulevard (approximately 1,500 feet). This would allow for the safety of walkers and joggers on this short span of 682.
