Members of the Youth Fellowship Group at Lindsey Trinity United Methodist Church plan to sleep in Lindsey Park Nov. 2 as part of the Appalachian Service Project Box Village.

The group will meet at the park at 7 p.m.

Members are doing odd jobs to raise funds to purchase their housing of boxes, sleeping bags and pillows, food, and related necessities.

Funds raised will also be used to pay for an ASP mission trip next June.

While they were building the Ottawa County Visitor’s Center on State Route 53, U.S. Representative Marcy Kaptur remembers a grain farmer who told her that a tourist center would never work there.
 
A few years later, the same farmer, who now makes and sells bird houses, said he sold every one he made.

While speaking at Maumee Bay State Park, U.S. Representative Marcy Kaptur was asked what she thinks of the 2012 presidential campaign.
 
Kaptur turned the question around, asking the guests if they were satisfied with the way both Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney were running their campaigns.

With local government wages outpacing private sector income in Lucas County 2.5 percent to 1.1 percent between 2000 to 2009, and the median household income dropping 2.7 percent from 2008 to 2009, some are questioning the wisdom of local public bodies asking voters to dig deeper into their pockets and pass new levies on the Nov. 6 ballot.

The Press encourages responses to articles and opinions. In order to provide for fair comment, The Press will have the following policy covering election letters to the editor:

The last issue for letters regarding the Nov. 6 election will be the second issue (Oct. 29)  before the election. No letters will be published in the issue immediately prior (Nov. 5)  to the election except for letters limited to direct rebuttal of election-related issues appearing in the second to last issue

No new political information can be introduced in the issue immediately before the election. This is to prevent inaccuracies without a fair chance for correction.

Letters are limited to ballot  issues. The Press does not print letters about candidates’ races.

Letters should be no more than 300 words and include a phone number and address for verification purposes. No anonymous letters will be printed. The deadline is Wednesday, Noon. Send to The Editor, c/o The Press, Box 169, Millbury, OH 43447 or e-mail to news@presspublications.com.
