To the Editor: BGHS musical made memorable evening

On Thursday evening, I joined hundreds of others in the Bowling Green Performing Arts Center to watch the high school's production of Mary Poppins. What a memorable evening! I imagine that every audience member was impressed, and humbled, by the talent on stage. Abby Paskvan (Mary Poppins) and Andrew Crowe (Bert) could hold their own against Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke any day. They were supported by an outstanding group of actors, singers, dancers, and musicians. It was easy to forget that these were high school students and not professionals.
While these hard-working students deserve a great deal of credit, we should also appreciate the talented individuals who don't appear on stage. While BGHS teachers like Jo Beth Gonzalez (Director) and Adam Landry (Musical Director) may not have been in the spotlight, they were equally important in making this production possible. They and the other teachers and administrators in Bowling Green City Schools deserve their own standing ovation. This incredibly successful show was a credit to all of the students who spent countless hours rehearsing and preparing.

Editorial: Hunger pains at food pantry

Most of us have never known true hunger. But to some local families, it's an all too familiar feeling and a constant fear.
The shelves at the Bowling Green Christian Food Pantry have been stocked for decades by generous donors who have soup and Spaghettios to spare.
But hungry families need more than bread, pasta and milk. They need someone to step up and provide a place for the pantry - soon.
For the past 11 years, the food pantry has been housed in the bottom floor of the old county health department building on West Wooster Street. The price is right, with no rent charged. But the location is far from ideal, with no handicapped accessibility, steps leading down into the pantry, inadequate space for food storage and no room for an office. The pantry is cramped, with families having to wait outside as others pick up food.
The pantry feeds 85 families each month, helping to fill the stomachs of an average 225 people, according to Shirley Woessner, a food pantry board member and volunteer coordinator for the site. Those families are allowed to come back for more every three months.

To the Editor: Ohio investment like 'CoinGate'
Written by Barbara Baumgartner

The decision of the Ohio's Bureau of Workers' Compensation to invest $50 million of taxpayer money in a Wisconsin real estate fund is truly CoinGate Deja vu. Not only is the Board, which is appointed entirely by Governor Kasich, taking investment out of state, but they're also putting it in the hands of a prominent national Republican donor, Jon Hammes Kasich's Democratic challenger, Ed FitzGerald, rightly pointed out that tangled nature of that investment, saying "If someone told me when I was in the FBI that a government board, appointed by a Republican governor, made an investment in an out-of-state fund run by a major Republican donor and that the only other states who invested in that fund also have Republican governors, I'd have told them that's a clue."

To the Editor: Herringshaw serves county well
Written by Tim Brown

With Primary election day around the corner on May 6th, I encourage you to join me in supporting Doris Herringshaw for Wood County Commissioner.
Since becoming our Commissioner, Doris has been on the job full time, continuing a long tradition of dedicated, full time service to the citizens of Wood County. She has worked extensively to continue the County's reputation for sound fiscal management, balancing the budget, and not raising taxes. Additionally, she has continued to promote Wood County as a great place to live and work. Wood County continues to see job expansion and has experienced a 1.6% drop in the unemployment rate over the past year, from 7.4% in 2013, to 5.8% in 2014. This continues Wood County's reputation of having one of the lowest unemployment rates in the region.
