Giant Eagle, along with the GetGo fuel and convenience store in front of the supermarket, will close Feb. 2, the Reflector learned today.

She said a team is looking at a site for a new fire station, but they are not close to making any recommendations to city council.

Crop disaster program sign-up continues Eligible farmers who suffered quantity losses to their crops in recent years can enroll in the Crop Disaster Program 2005-2007 (CDP) at the Huron and Erie County FSA Service Center. FSA will announce and conduct sign-up for quality losses under CDP as soon as possible. Certain crop producers suffered major financial losses as the result of a natural disaster during the last couple of years. Subject to final rules for the program, CDP provides benefits to farmers who suffered losses to the 2005 to 2007 crops from natural disasters and related conditions so long as the actual crop lost was planted or prevented from being planted before Feb. 28, 2007. Producers who incurred qualifying losses in 2005, 2006 or 2007 must choose only one year to receive benefits. Producers may apply for benefits for losses to multiple crops as long as the losses occurred in the same crop year.

Voters in the 5th Congressional District have an opportunity for change. We have been, for too long, represented by a congressman who voted 90 percent of the time to support President Bush and his wrong policies, sending our country spiraling toward recession and costing Americans jobs, homes and any kind of respect we used to enjoy in the world. This horrible war in Iraq is a totally unnecessary blunder that we will never live down, and our grandchildren will be paying off the debt. Our troops will require help in their lives for the next 65 years after they finally get back home, and the deaths in Iraq are a terrible waste of human life.

This is a question as to what is neo-conservative crap by Michael Holubar, in a Nov. 27 Letter to the Editor. What is he talking about? It can't be the Reflector, with its liberal syndicated columnists or editorial cartoons. He can't be referring to our big city papers, radio or TV that lean way to the left. Or to any stories with AP as its source. I would rather have news without spin. Let me decide what it says, not liberal or conservative leanings with agendas. Ron Winkle
