Team to fight forced annexation

Fairfield residents Ed O'Neill and Mark Berend proudly display one of the petition books. Petition books have been left at four local businesses, thus far, and the men plan to have a booth at the April 21 Market Days event.

Two local men have joined together in a fight against the City of Fairfield to circumvent annexation of two subdivisions west of the city limits. Mark Berend, Ed O'Neill, and their team are circulating petitions at area businesses to stop forced annexation.

Letter to the editor

Dear editor,

Last Thursday night I was out of town and was not able to attend the called session of the City Council meeting.

I understand, from talking to people, that it was another nearly four hour pony show that the mayor put in place.

I understand that over three hours of this meeting was in executive session.

If the Mayor and City Administrator would look in the TML rule book I truly believe that the things going on behind closed doors are against the rules.

I really don’t feel like they ever look in the book.

I wished that the Mayor would take in consideration the people who are connected to our City.

I have noticed in the long meetings that it appears to me that the 88-year-old City Councilman is worn out.

I can see the fatigue on his face.

What I have to say to the Mayor is shame...shame..shame on you.

Remaining clerks to be trained for Nov. elections

Despite being short two employees, recently re-elected County Clerk Linda Jarvis is confident about the upcoming May runoff election. Jarvis said Chief Deputy Dianne Manning and Elections Clerk Crystal Rossiaky are no longer with her office, but the remaining employees will be trained – and cross trained – in the elections process and other office procedures. Previously, Jarvis handled the elections until turning it over to Rossiaky and Manning. Jarvis said all clerks in her office will learn the election process and one will be named elections clerk. Jarvis and that clerk will also attend Elections School this summer, a state-mandated course. Commissioner's recently approved an order of poll books for the November election and the entire staff will be trained in their usage. The runoff election is slated for May 22 for the following candidates:

Teen hosts "walk out" at FHS

Fairfield High School students participated in a "walk out" Tuesday morning to show their support of the victims of the Florida school shooting. Students prayed and had a moment of silence. Pictured above is Morgan Treece, the student responsible for planning the event. Treece urged her fellow classmates to take a few moments each day to be kind and make an effort to talk to someone they don't know. "It's simple to be kind," said Treece. Look for a follow up story on this event in a future edition.

Good fishing on Richland Chambers Lake

Fishing Friends,

We began our Spring Break week last Friday and Saturday with both boats out and some dads and sons on board. Normally we fish for the white bass and hybrid stripers during Spring Break but the large numbers of fish have not shown up yet as they are probably up the creeks finishing off their annual spawn. We've heard a couple of reports of fishermen catching a few white bass so it won't be long til everyone is! In the mean time, we continue to catch blue and channel catfish! We had a very good Friday with some nice cloud cover and south wind and then a little slower Saturday with the sunshine and calm breeze. The best bite is always associated with cloud cover and a nice south wind, but you can't have perfect conditions every outing! We still managed a nice ice chest of fish for all our customers!
