Candidate for state AG wants programs to protect middle class

To the Editor:

I am writing in response to your article, "AG Candidate Lays Out Plan He Says Will Protect Middle Class" on the Athens NEWS website, which was published on March 2, 2014.

Yesterday, March 4, I left my home on Ohio Rt. 691. I have to travel Poston Station Road, Athens County Road 110, to get into The Plains to connect to any major highways. After the snowstorm on Sunday, a lot of roads were impassable until treated.

Vagina tree near Chauncey gets chopped down, to all of our loss

To the Editor:
