I read the newspaper article about Carol Smith with great dismay. I am writing in support of a veteran teacher who was instrumental in influencing my sons and granddaughters who have since graduated from Perkins High School.
I urge my friends and neighbors to vote for Bill Monaghan on May 4.
Bill has done an excellent job as our commissioner. He has kept services going without borrowing money or raising our taxes.
He has worked hard to bring jobs to Erie County.
He has reached out to Huron, Ottawa and Lorain counties to find better ways to work together.
I supported Bill Monaghan in his first term politically, financially and personally.
It is time to put a man with real integrity in the county commission. We need Sam Artino serving our needs. Please vote for Sam Artino in the Democratic primary and restore some integrity to our party.
Les Hall, Castalia
The Nov. 4 election asks you to deploy the best person for the task of stabilizing our county resources and capture momentum in developing NASA, the U.S. 250 corridor and the expansion of sewer lines as a springboard for jobs. We have all faced a challenging year, and we have each probably made some painful choices. Now is not the time to change leadership.
Detectives have solved Norwalk's fetus mystery.
A now-deceased doctor owned the fetus found last week in a junkyard van and likely used it for teaching purposes, which is fairly common among the medical community, said Huron County Sheriff's Capt. Ted Patrick.
The jury just came back and they found Thomas Ricks guilty of aggravated murder.
Ricks is one of two men suspected in the March 11, 2008, shooting death of Calvin Harper Jr.
He faces life in prison.
Erie County prosecutor Kevin Baxter described the murder as a set-up in a dangerous environment of drug dealings.
Sandusky police officers are expected to ask for the city to use its emergency piggy bank to call back laid-off officers at tonight's city commission meeting.
This and many other items on the agenda. Stay tuned to www.sanduskyregister.com to view the livestream video broadcast of the city commission meeting. It starts at 5 p.m.
Steam comes from the engine block of a semi truck as Perkins fire sprays water to a semi truck that was on fire at Ohio 4, just north of Strub Road today.
No one was injured, but traffic had to be rerouted as crews cleared the scene.
A few days ago when I got to work and checked my e-mail, I found a long press release from the Jennifer Brunner campaign, criticizing Lee Fisher, her opponent in the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate.
Primary elections. Yawn.
That's what most of us seem to think, anyway; Americans' dismayingly low voter turnouts are even lower for primary contests. Who wants to watch the prelims when the championship bout is on the way?
But this time, at least in Erie County, the real contest is in the primaries.
Just before 6 p.m. Thursday, Imelda Muniz called 911 to report she had just set her furniture on fire and needed someone to respond.
Muniz, 39, of Willard, gave her address, 524 Pleasant St., and a dispatcher told her to flee the home.
