John Lendrum has been a member of the Norwalk City Schools Board of Education since 1996. Along with his fellow board members, he has given generously of his time, resources, and knowledge to ensure that the children of the district would have the best possible education. This was particularly evident during the passage of the bond issue to build the new high school and during the construction phase. He is a man of intelligence and good judgment who always puts the needs of the children first. While I have not worked with Mike Grose as a board member (I had retired before he was elected) I have consistently observed that he has done an excellent job in that position. I did work with him when he served the district as a teacher, coach, and athletic director and remember his dedication to the students with whom he worked.

Toast the state of Ohio for offering a helping hand, About 97 percent of senior citizens and others eligible for an expanded property tax cut met an Oct. 1 deadline to apply or already were enrolled, officials said. As a result, nearly 566,000 new applicants joined about 222,000 Ohioans in the expanded Homestead Exemption Program approved this summer as part of the state's two-year, $52 billion operating budget. The program allows people 65 and older or those deemed permanently or totally disabled to shield the first $25,000 of a home's value from property taxes. The program previously had income restrictions on eligibility. The change is expected to save the average eligible Ohioan about $400. Eligible homeowners who missed the deadline will get a second chance to apply, but they will have to wait until the normal enrollment period from Jan. 8 through June 2. Roast the person or persons involved with the bomb threat last week to the Bellevue City Schools. Just one day after local first responders held a student hostage/lockdown drill at Bellevue High School, somebody e-mailed the Sandusky Register's Web site and issued the bomb threat as a comment to the story. The threat will cost thousands of dollars and somebody will have to pay. Guess who? That's why whoever is involved should be prosecuted and held accountable for their actions.
