The League of Women Voters would like to commend the Wood County Board of Elections (BOE) for their efficient and courteous attention to the needs of the voters in a strong bi-partisan manner.  
As one example, the position of Director of the BOE rotates between the two major political parties every 2 years and a high level of cooperation has been a long- standing tradition.
A major goal of the LWVBG is to provide non-partisan information to help inform the voter by way of the Voter Guide and Candidate Forums.
The assistance we receive from the BOE in this endeavor is generously and professionally provided.

To the Editor: Eastwood teachers unfairly criticized
Written by Mike Godfrey   
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 08:34
Silence in the face of undeserved criticism is often construed as agreement. Let it be known that the comments attributed to Crystal Crosby, as found in a May 6 Sentinel story, have been found to be unnecessary, unprovoked, and offensive by the Eastwood teachers.
To set the record straight, a group of Eastwood teachers made a presentation to the Eastwood Board of Education on April 21 outlining what new learning environments could mean for our students and our community. Twice before the Board meeting began, the teachers found all the borrowed equipment working properly. However, once it became time for the teachers to present, the Powerpoint wouldn't start because the computer, due to a safety feature, simply timed out. In less than a minute, the computer's owner (the only person who could do so) inputted his password and everything was up and running fine.

OK, people. Get out your checkbooks.
City officials, through Peabody Energy and the American Municipal Power [AMP] people, have locked Bowling Green into a 50 year commitment [for 50% of our electricity] to the failing AMP Prairie State, Illinois, coal company.
Bowling Green [and other AMP communities] are contracted to pay off any debts incurred by [1] the AMP coal plant and [2] six AMP hydroelectric plants which are presently running at double the original projected construction cost.
In order to pay off these debts, Bowling Green's Board of Public Utilities decided to increase residents' electric rates by 5% starting March 31 of this year, with an additional increase of 5% every year for 5 years.
Check out the "electric" portion [lower, left side] of your monthly utility bill.

To the Editor: Remember price of freedom

What is the price of freedom? It has been said freedom is not free. On this Memorial Day, look around any cemetery, look carefully at the ones which have flags waving. Those who are resting in our nation's cemeteries bought the freedoms we enjoy today, with their blood and their lives. That is the price of freedom!
In February, 1943, four men were standing together on the deck of a ship which had been hit by torpedoes. These men of different faiths had given their life jackets to four others so they might live to fight the war and help bring peace to the world. These men - known later as the Four Chaplains - were last seen standing together, praying, as their ship the Dorchester sank in the cold dark waters of the North Atlantic. That is the price of freedom!
