Local library system provides exemplary service at all levels

To the Editor:

"The Athens Voice" sometimes provides me a chuckle or two, but the mention in Monday's paper that one shouldn't support the Athens County Public Libraries levy due to their "looney cycles" made me want to offer some facts and even some opinions for consideration.

Hecht should answer for infamous ‘green envelopes’

To the Editor:

Kathy Hecht, Democrat, is running for the county auditor against Jill Thompson, a Republican. However, Ms. Hecht has taken a page out of the extreme conservative right-wing agenda as a city auditor.

I first met Yolan Dennis 40 years ago at Marietta Memorial Hospital. I was then the director of the hospital pharmacy, and she was starting out on her nursing career. Then four years later, her future husband, Lloyd Dennis, started at the hospital as an orderly.

Jill Thompson will be necessary check on one-party control

To the Editor:


In local elections, party affiliation should mean little (although see below): For example, we are more interested in having a coroner who can determine the time and cause of death rather than support our political party's position on tax reform or global warming.
