I hope whoever helped themselves to my flowers this weekend enjoyed them. It’s amazing. You took all my geraniums, hanging baskets and flats. I can’t imagine if it was kids why their parents weren’t concerned where the flowers came from.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t down there much this year. I tried to keep my expenses down so I didn’t hire anyone. My mornings and afternoons consisted of going to get flowers either to stock up or for orders. Then I left early some nights to go to my grandchildren’s ball games. Whoever took them this weekend had to know I was busy with my grandson’s open house.

My customers that I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with for the last 15 years know if I’m not there they can take what they want and come back later to take care of their purchases. I would like to thank all those who have had the courtesy to do so. Only in a small town like Morenci can business be done this way.

I do have a mailing address if those who took the flowers would like to take care of the situation.

Thanks again to all my past and present customers.

    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
