Thanksgiving is a special time of year in which family and loved ones come together and give thanks for the blessings they have received throughout the year. Yet, for thousands right here in our community, this is not the case. 

With the joy of Thanksgiving and the holidays also comes the harshness of the winter months.  Rising heating and transportation costs will affect us all this coming winter, however it will be especially burdensome for the approximately 80,000 people who live below the poverty line in Northwestern Ohio.

For Will Buchanan, if liberty is worth fighting for, it’s sure worth a long walk.

He’s rotating between his fourth, fifth, and sixth pairs of shoes on a cross-county trek that began April 14 in Cannon Beach, Oregon and will, if his daily schedule holds, conclude by late November or early December in New Hampshire – all in the name of liberty.

“What we’re doing is taking out a line that states services cannot be made to parked automobiles,” said Mayor Marge Brown at a council meeting last Monday.

There is no question that the recent disastrous events plaguing Wall Street and other segments of our economy are spilling over into broad areas of U.S. life.

Many people feel that the worst is yet to come. With continued job losses, manufacturers and dealerships closing, and retirement plans shaky or destroyed, it is easy to see that the list of citizens feeling the pain is endless. We have to ask, “Where was the oversight of these investment firms?” Countless questions remain unanswered as financial crooks get away with legal larceny.

A group of men from the United Methodist Church have a habit of making sure everyone in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan has food on their table.

The Maumee Watershed District United Methodist Men (members are from Fulton, Lucas, Henry, Wood, and portions of Ottawa, Sandusky, and Seneca counties) spend their weekends gleaning available crops from Northwest Ohio farm fields.

At the invitation of growers, gleaners work fields and orchards, harvesting the unpicked produce which is distributed to food banks, food pantries, soup kitchens, and other charities where there has been a growing need.
