My Dad was an Air Force fighter pilot, and he served in Korea and Vietnam. While others were buying luxuries with their combat pay, Dad was buying a farm in Crawford County, Ohio, with his pay. That farm has been in the family for nearly five generations, and it is his legacy to us. It was Dad’s greatest desire to be a good steward to the land, and he was recognized as such. Good land stewardship means ensuring that the . . . Complete story »

Commissioner candidates Bill Frankart, Adam Smith face off in LWV primary forum

On another controversial topic, the candidates found common ground. Both Frankart and Smith said they are against development of wind energy projects in Seneca County. “I think Reineke did a phenomenal job on SB 52, and that is, take it to the voters. Me personally, I wasn’t for wind turbines from day one. I think you take it to each property owner and let the voters make that decision, but no, I would not be in support of that,” Smith said. Frankart touted his experience as an Adams Township trustee, saying that his township was the first in the county to intervene against proposed wind farms. Complete story »
