The year was 1855 and Franklin Pierce was President of the United States. In Medina County, Ohio, it was time to do something about the poor by opening the County Infirmary.”
Chippewa Lake author Eli R. Beachy ably sets the mood for the information he is about to impart to his readers. “The Medina County Home — Those Early Years 1855-1935,” What follows, then, is a detailed accounting of the history of the Medina establishment that opened in January of 1855 and “… remains an active, viable and vital element of the county in 2007.”
The author, who respects the facility and its operation, is donating all the profits to the Friends of the Medina County Home. The book can be purchased through the County Home office and the cost is $20. For more information, call Lynn Remington at 330-723-9951.

Local Wal-Marts test sites for new Bible action figures.
Jane Beachy, director of children's ministries at the Carlisle Brethren in Christ, thinks some good may come out of the action figures.
“I think anything that helps children understand that they were true, real people who actually did what it says in the Bible is a great thing and can be good if used well,” Beachy said. “The one concern I might have is that they would put them in the same category as superheroes,” Beachy said. “Superheroes aren't real and the amazing things they can do aren't real, but what those from the Bible do through God are real.” For complete story click here.

I am passionate about cars. I have spent many , many hours racing, repairing and detailing cars. One of my first jobs as a teenager was detailing BMWs and Mazdas for a staffing agency in Ventura, CA where they are imported for Western US. While there, and during my four years as a soldier in the US Army, I learned everything anybody needs to know about attention to detail. At the same time, I was applying these techniques toward the detailing of my own cars. Now, with Immaculate Details, I can share the joy of owning a detailed car.

Bonners Ferry Idaho June 29, 2007, William Peachey's farm. Winds like this are not supposed to happen in Northern Idaho, but they did. Willie not only lost the roof to his barn but several shade trees as well. The storm did damage in Northern Idaho and Southern B.C. Some injuries but no loss of life that we know of. Editor's note, "Willie is my fifth cousin and comes from PA."
