The 2014 Relay For Life of Southern Wood County Committee would like to thank the community for their support for this year's event. Over its 20 years, Relay For Life of Southern Wood County has raised over $2 million for Cancer Research and Outreach Programs. So far this year, over 304 registered participants from 31 teams have raised over $88,000.00 in the fight against cancer.
During our event, May 16-17, this community showered us with support as we raised over $20,000 during the event alone. From businesses, and individuals, donating items for the live, silent and basket auctions, to our sponsors for the survivors and caregivers reception and meat raffle and the people who create and participate on our Relay Teams. Our event is considered one of the best because of you.
Every day people hear the words, "You have cancer." It is the American Cancer Society's mission to provide research grants and programs for those battling cancer, so that someday we may find a cure and finish the fight against cancer.

I have talked with Mr. Halleck and have found out he had nothing to do with the missing paintings. Also, I have talked with present renters and they feel safe and secure in their storage bins.

To the Editor: Gun owners often use firearms for protection
Written by Chad Baus, Archbold

In her June 25 editorial, "Middle ground for gun laws?", Jan Larson-McLaughlin writes that "as someone who reads Associated Press stories from across the nation every day, I must say that I can't remember the last story about a person successfully using a gun to legally protect themselves outside their home."
Either her memory is deeply flawed, or she is proving that using the AP as one's primary news source will leave them horribly uninformed.
BuckeyeFirearms.org, the official website of an organization which the writer shows a particular disdain, lists the many such incidents that have happened right here in Ohio - all taken from media reports. There are around 60 incidents listed - with all but a few happening outside the home.

To the Editor: Wood County library's annual benefit set at Schedel Gardens
Written by WCDPL Foundation Board, Melissa Krieger Board President

On July 17, the Wood County District Public Library (WCDPL) Foundation will be hosting its sixth annual Library Benefit at Schedel Gardens in Elmore. This signature event raises funds to purchase new books, audiobooks, large print books, and ebooks for the library. The importance of private fundraising for the library remains high, particularly as state funding for libraries continues to decline (2014 funding is at 1996 levels).
The Foundation continues to seek sponsors for the event. If you wish to help sponsor the event, contact Michael Penrod at 419-352-5104. Also, a limited number of tickets ($100 each, $75 of which is tax deductible) are still available at the library.  
The event is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., with garden tours starting at 4:30 p.m. (golf carts available). Come enjoy good company in an idyllic setting with delicious hors d'oeuvres and fine beverages. Live and silent auction items are available, including one-of-a-kind artwork, catered dinners, gift certificates from local businesses, and a week's vacation on the Mexican Riviera at Casa Arabia.
