  • The United States Fuel Administration is urging every consumer in the country to buy their coal now.
  • Everyone has their own area of expertise. When I was a child, I would whine about wanting the cool pairs of jeans with patch prints screened on them.
  • May 3, 1918 — Under the auspices of the ladies of Ottawa, the local chapter of Red Cross will hold an Auction and Bazaar in Ottawa, Saturday, May 4th. The ladies have worked hard and the people have gladly and willingly responded to their appeal for articles for the sale.

  • Regardless of how you feel about raised voices of any sort, people are on the move physically, spiritually and digitally.
  • Now the rest of the story ... This is in reference to the article printed in the April 4 issue of the Sentinel. The following was missed.

  • Mrs. Briget Creighton, wife of the late Michael Creighton, died at the home of her daughter in Lima, early last Friday morning, at the age of 87 years.
  • The hillside north of our place is blooming with daffodils, yellow flames fanning today’s snow from thawing ground.

  • “Children should be seen and not heard” is a saying familiar to most of us. Just as many parents don’t cotton to the saying — certainly not in retail stores, where tired wails reverberate off high ceilings.

  • On last Tuesday, Shondel & Deck narrowly escaped losing one of their team of mules. AB & O train had been switching on the side track and had spotted a car of coal for the firm. The crew had advised the driver of the team...
  • “Of course, you will want an engagement ring.” said he. “Yes,” replied she. “With a big diamond in it?” “No a diamond is only carbon after all. Make it a small diamond and put the change into the shape of a few tons of coal.”

  • There was spring snow this morning, well-lit by Jupiter and the full moon in the southwest sky. The snow will melt after sunrise, according to weather band radio. For now, horned larks chime in the rolling white caps of the plowed field across the road.
  • Yesterday, Thursday, forty-nine more of the selective draft men assembled at Ottawa, at 1 o’clock p. m. and today Friday, at 9 a.m. Forty of them will entrain for Camp Sherman, Chillicothe. Of the forty-nine, nine are alternates, from which will be drawn enough to fill the quota of forty, in case the first forty enrolled do not all report.

  • Why have 11 dogs made their way to the Putnam County Dog Shelter in as many days? Are people giving up their dogs for Lent? Pardon my sorry attempt at humor. If I don’t laugh, I cry. Not long ago, our Fergus was kenneled there. Now his big brown eyes watch My Steven knead dough for Easter breakfast rolls.

  • A famous Northwest Ohio eatery, one that claims that their pickle-topped meat patties will send your heart into paroxysms (in a good way), declares March as the month for chocolate. This appears to be working for them since their billboards and TV spots have claimed so for as far back as I can remember. Lots of someone must not give up chocolate for Lent around these parts.
