WILLARD The city has received a federal grant that will pay for 95 percent of the costs for a new pumper/tanker truck for the fire department. City Manager Brian Humphress said the city will have to provide a match of $8,750 toward the purchase. But, since the truck will be used outside the city, surrounding townships will need to contribute $2,975 of that amount. That will leave the city to pay $5,775 for the truck. "Fire chief Rich Myers is to be congratulated on his work to obtain this funding," Humphress told council Monday night.

I have just completed the reading of our local socialist professor, Pat Saunders, and his most recent diatribe that is so willingly published by the Reflector. Mr. Saunders chides Mayor Lesch for her honesty and, let's face it, despite Mr. Saunders' eloquent rewrite of history the fact remains that Kucinich was a failed mayor and is so extreme in his views that he is not even seriously considered by a majority of his own party. Why this letter was published as a "visiting viewpoint' and not a standard letter to the editor is beyond me. The letter is more than 300 words, so I guess that kicks it into the "visiting viewpoint' slot.
