A local group supporting Barack Obama is knocking on doors and dialing neighbors to get voters to cast support for him in Tuesday's primary. "The way his campaign is structured is much like a community campaign," organizer Patrick Saunders said. "It's very people-oriented. We feel its a lot better to have someone from the community knocking on the doors rather than using recorded phone calls." Saunders said about six people hit the streets on Sunday and covered most of the city's first ward. They are not stopping at every home, he said, but are concentrating on registered Democrats, new voters and independents.

WILLARD - Chances are, you won't find many teary-eyed cast members of this year's Willard High School production of "Seussical.' That's because almost all will be back next year to perform in at least one more high school production before heading out into the "real world.' Among the roughly 35 cast members, only two are seniors. Production director Cindy Light said she usually has anywhere from 10 to 12 seniors in a cast. But, Light said whatever this year's group might be lacking in experience, they're making up for in talent.

When Ralph Fegley decided not to seek re-election for county commissioner, I was sad and disappointed. When Chuck Furey made the commitment to take on the challenge, I was relieved and excited. Like Ralph Fegley, Chuck Furey is a gentleman, bright and experienced. Chuck has that special ability to listen to many points of view, think things through and then make tough decisions.

Silcox has been there before Experience counts. That's why I will be voting for Larry Silcox for Huron County Commissioner on March 4 and I urge all eligible voters to do the same. Larry has a background which makes him uniquely qualified for this position. As a former commissioner, he is ready to hit the bricks running. He knows county government, he knows government budgeting, he knows the art of teamwork. As former chief deputy sheriff, Larry knows Huron County. He knows every corner of the county and the people who live here. As a small-business owner, he is aware of the current economic situation. As a parent of two school-aged children, he is concerned about the quality of education, negative influences and the future.

It is truly a pleasure and honor for me to write this letter of endorsement for Charles Furey, who is running for the position of Huron County commissioner. Chuck is a Huron County native and in addition to being raised here he has spent his entire 38 year professional career based in Norwalk in the service of Huron County area residents for National City Bank. I have known and dealt with Chuck on several different levels, which are very pertinent and closely line up to the skill sets that are important in a role such as Huron County commissioner. Chuck was in the banking industry, which is a service business, which means taking care of the constituents, customers and Huron County residents. As a banker he has worked to assist businesses succeed, expand, put together various financial packages that allowed people to buy homes, do renovations and recruit new business jobs to our community.

I'm voting for a positive change, I'm voting for Sen. Barack Obama. Sen. Obama will bring intelligence back to the White House. He will end the mess of the Iraq war. We freed the people of Iraq from an evil dictator. They have a new government elected by the people. Now it is time they provide their own security. We can no longer baby-sit Iraq at the cost of American lives and taxpayer money.
