    The residents of the Cambrian, all of whom are elderly or disabled, want to extend our sincere thanks to the churches, the businesses, and the individual families, who have been so kind in delivering evening meals during Governor’s DeWine’s Stay at Home Order.  And we want to especially thank one very special individual who has coordinated the delivery of all the meals, and delivered them door to door, to each of our apartments.

    At the request of these very kind Jackson County folks, they ask that we do not mention any of their names. They noted that that is not why they are doing it.

    Thanks to all of those involved!!

    Gary W. Keller

    Director, Jackson MHA

    Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America, put on the greatest show in the United States when he delivered the State of the Union address last night. The world was watching Tuesday evening, February 4th at 9 p.m. EST, Well, at least viewers in the United States and around the world that tuned into its broadcast,

  • Beaches…
    I was at my favorite beach yesterday, and was surprised to see 50-foot-long sections of pipe lined up in front of the dunes.  My first reaction was they must be putting in new storm sewers. To my right were old rusty metal pipe sections, and to my left were brand new plastic pipe sections.
  • Worldometer…
    As I am writing this column on February 3rd, 2020, I am looking at a website called Worldometer.  It is kind of disturbing, and somehow comforting at the same time.  It gives real-time counts on the world population, daily births, daily deaths, total population growth today, and up-to-date counts on this year’s births and deaths.

              Dear Jackson County Citizens,

    I have received a couple of phone calls asking why I wasn’t at the Commissioners’ meeting on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 during the discussion of the Sanctuary proclamation.
