Senator John McCain being elected president of this great country of ours means no cuts for the wealthy Americans and in corporate taxes. John McCain assails Sen. Obama for tax increases and excessive spending. Obama's actions are a proven fact. The McCain plan is to control the spending in the Iraq war. He is greatly concerned over the security our Americans deserve and will leave Iraq only when he is certain this is achieved. Any war veteran would agree to this.

Toast everybody involved with this year's third annual Dam Festival in Monroeville. It takes a lot of hard work and effort to put on a festival, and we bet it won't be long before organizers start working on next year's event. The only glitch this year was the weather, but we all know there's nothing you can do about Mother Nature. Roast all of the people who continue to drop off junk on the weekends at the Clothing Bank in Norwalk. Many of the items left are good, but are ruined when it rains like it did this past weekend. Much of the stuff is just left over from garage sales. If you are not sure, call the Clothing Bank at (419) 668-6977 and ask for Jean Row. She'll let you know if they can use the items.
