On the 2014 London Rib and Jazz Fest:
Jan Stahl: Yes, we went. Completely and totally enjoyed ourselves. Enjoyed the food and the vendors and the car show, and very much enjoyed the Mojo Theory band. Thank you to all involved in putting it together. Great job.
Laura Johnson: Gumm’s Grill BBQ by far has the best pulled pork!
TR Mason: S&R were the best ribs we tried.
Ashley Beathard Winebrenner: Rudy’s ribs were amazing!
On the firing of OSU band director Johnathan Waters:
Jen Warner: He should have been given the chance to fix it.
Robert Mason: Blown out of proportion.
Rob Treynor: To allow a culture to flourish that not only tolerates this behavior but practically insists on it in order to participate would be a huge step backward for America. Tolerating and allowing this to occur in college then sets up an expectation for these students, later in life, to accept this kind of behavior in their workplaces. OSU choosing any other course of action would have been a disservice to any student paying attention to what occurred. This was teaching moment for these students that inaction toward hazing and harassment is not tolerated in our culture.
On the Plain City village council considering legislation banning trapping after learning a resident was using leg traps to capture squirrels:
James R Ford: His yard key word. First, the very most that that would happen is maybe a broken bone in the foot. I would like to think my child has more respect then to just run into someone’s else’s yard. And once again I do not agree with it but it is his yard! I would use a live trap instead and relocate the pest out in the country. But you want to force people to pay for a service to move them for you.
Brenda Girard Dale: Too much big brother for me. Can’t make rule for everything everyone does they think is stupid or not right. People have been doing it in there own in Plain City for almost 200 years. One guy comes along and going to make people spend money they don’t have and can do on their own as they have all along?
Jennifer Dengerd: How about requiring residents to use common sense when trapping animals? It is his yard, of course, but children have been known to run through other people’s yards from time to time. I encourage my children to stay out of other people’s yards, but sometimes kids get excited.
Jaime Brooks: He shouldn’t be using those in town near the school. Kids have to walk by there to go to school and if a child was to slip off the sidewalk an get caught in one there will be major problems at that point.
