  • They are our country’s unsung heroes. More than 90 million Americans improve the quality of life for loved ones who have chronic conditions, disabilities, disease or the frailties of old age.
  • There’s something about a hot shower or soak in a tub that begs promotion. Before anyone jumps to sordid conclusions, have you ever picked up a bottle of shampoo and passed bath time pretending to be a brand spokesperson promoting said product to the bathroom mirror?
  • October 10, 1919: As Mr. Campbell was returning home to Lima, on last Wednesday night, in his auto, he was attacked as he crossed the railroads tracks at the base line.
  • “Aww, he’s so cute,” cooed a group of dozen flower-print and school-color garbed girls, all clustered around me last week at Ottawa’s Memorial Park. They could have cared less about me. They were talking about the reptile that poked his head out from my sweatshirt sleeve.
  • October 4, 1919: Paul Eugene, youngest son of Cloid L. and Eunice Schmidt was born near Continental, Ohio, Jan. 16th, 1918 and died near Morenei, Michigan.

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."
  • 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.
