2012.08.22 Lori Glisson: Appreciates support in wind turbine vote

Written by David Green.

I would like to thank all of the Seneca Township voters who came out and voted to repeal the wind turbine ordinance.

It would not have been possible without the support and encouragement we received from everyone who was involved—those who signed the petition to get it placed on the ballot; those who placed a sign in your yard; all the people who informed others why the need for a more protective ordinance was necessary; the IICC for their help; and the people who were and still are the Seneca Concerned Citizens.

I would encourage more people to attend the regular township board meetings. They are held at 7:30 p.m. on the second Monday of the month at the Seneca Township Hall. You can also write a letter to our township officials and let them know that you would like to see a more protective ordinance similar to Riga or Fairfield’s  put into place.

I would also suggest attending the planning commission meetings. They are held once every three months. The next meeting is at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 5. It is also at the township hall.

    MORENCI pep rallies generally end with a tug of war. The senior class entry, shown above, did not advance to the finals. Griffin Grieder, Alaina Webster, Kyle Long and Jazmin Smith are shown at the front of the rope, giving it their best effort.
  • Accident
    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.
