  • September 19, 1919: On last Saturday evening, about 8 o’clock, what might have been a very serious accident occurred a few miles north east of Ottawa, when an auto driven by Mr. John Boher, who resides a few miles northeast of this place, was upset in a ditch six feet deep, along the road near the home of John Diemer.
  • "Last week, Brian Siefker, Columbus Grove’s VFW Post Commander, felt compelled to write a Letter to the Editor to the Putnam County Sentinel, expressing his concerns in regards to the Leipsic football team and coaches, not being on the field for the playing of the National Anthem for its game on September 6. I felt an official response was needed to counteract some of his uninformed points."

  • "Personally speaking from first hand, I was with the guys right before waking into the track. We stopped, took our helmets off, paid our respects."
  • There’s some good sleeping weather going on. At night, the cottonwoods rustle steadily, rivaling the “White Noise” setting on the tower fan that we bought during the most recent power outage.
  • I would like to address a concern I have that arose during this past Friday night’s football game at Columbus Grove where the Columbus Grove Bulldogs faced the Leipsic Vikings.
  • The view beyond the windowpane is green grass, dotted with two-and one-story houses.

  • Songs are sung, poems are spun, and books are written about cloud formations — not the physical characteristics of clouds as they pertain to weather.
  • August 29, 1919: The Pioneer picnic on last Tuesday was attended by more then two thousand people. The committee on arrangements had provided a good program that was enjoyed by all.
  • A woman behind me in a checkout line was talking to her child; a daughter with the same name as my own.
  • August 22, 1919: What was looked upon as impracticable several years ago and highly hazardous prior to the war, has now become a reality. Flights in aeroplanes can be taken at a price of one dollar a minute.
  • “I’m buying this for my husband/ wife/aunt/uncle/giant millipede,” say a few farmers market customers on any given weekend; strong statements accompanied by pats to stomach and hips. “I don’t eat bread.”
  • August 15, 1919: Last week, Mr. E. S. Perry, living northeast of Leipsic, this county, met with an accident which caused his death.
