Moving wall message: `This is the cost of war’

An estimated 6,500 people – some from as far away as New York and North Carolina – visited the Vietnam Moving Wall while it was in the Village of Elmore for five days, said Ron Distel, the man who was a key organizer behind the visit.

“It was three years of toil that was worth its weight in gold,” he said last week.

Pete Atherine stood in front of The Moving Wall visibly shaken, folder in his hand, his wife, Barb, by his side.

The names of five neighborhood friends killed in Vietnam were in the folder.

Twenty-five persons from three area counties have been indicted for their alleged involvement in a cocaine ring operating in Northwest Ohio.

The indictments stem from an investigation that has spanned several years by agents with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the sheriff departments in Ottawa and Sandusky counties, and Fremont City Police Department.

Four village residents, including the father of the outgoing Genoa Village Council member, want to take a seat at the council table.

Councilman Brian Best officially left his post Monday. He is moving out of the village and no longer fits the residency requirement, according to village officials. Best formally informed his fellow council members at their regular meeting Aug. 6.
