On Oct. 9, 2000, my husband received the gift of life from a loving, caring person a liver transplant. I was married almost 42 years to a wonderfully successful, humble man who cared deeply, gave freely, gentle and kind. We had six years together after his transplant. He had leukemia and died Aug. 20, 2006. I am very thankful to his donor for the extra time we had together with our two terrific children and their delightful spouses and two wonderful, unique and gifted grandsons. April is Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Month. Please take a moment to think about what you can do, save a life be a donor.

Times have really changed the last decade. No longer can we get that hot news story and hold it until the next day's paper. By then it's too late. People want their news now. And they like to add their two cents.

Toast Willard Middle School Principal Dan Major, who is calling it a career after 14 years as principal and 35 years in education 34 in Willard. Those in the community have lauded Major for his willingness to go out of his way for his students and their parents. We applaud Major for the school's academic achievements and awards during his tenure and wish him well in retirement. Roast Franklin County Common Pleas Judge David E. Cain for ruling private clubs cannot allow smoking, despite language in the statewide ban that appeared to permit the exemption. Both the ban and the specific exemption (private clubs with no nonmembers present whose employees were all members) are good ideas.
