Students don’t get enough credit when they do good works

To the Editor:

Athens can be and often is a community of year-round residents and Ohio University students working for the common good. Such was the case this past Sunday when hundreds of students and townsfolk worked side by side to add a touch of class and beauty to our fair town.

Rain clouds don’t overshadow Athens Beautification Day

To the Editor:

With everything that happened here in Athens, Ohio this past weekend I'd like to draw attention to one event that was overshadowed. The 2015 Athens Beautification Day was held on Sunday, April 19 from 11:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. You may have seen many students in maroon T-shirts working midday all across town.

Thank you for being the first exposure my son had to nudity (even in the world of Internet, Athens County beat out pornography!).

It’s time to replace Number Fest with a new type of local festival

To the Editor:

Due to the obviously uncontrollable nature of Number Fest, it is time a festival in Athens takes a completely contrarian turn. Enter: Square Fest. Finally a fest for all the squarest people in the area.
