Police want to remind residents about City of Lima's laws regarding pit bulls

LIMA, OH (WLIO) - After a tragic event for a local family, the Lima Police Department is reminding residents of the city's laws regarding pit bulls. The city ordinance states that you must be 18 years of age to have a pit bull and you can only have one dog per residence. When outdoors, the animal must be muzzled and leashed if being walked and in a secure pen if outdoors on your property. You must carry 100 thousand dollars of liability insurance in case the dog attacks a person or domesticated animal. These are a few of the regulations to legally own a pit bull in the City of Lima and local law enforcement says they need to be followed to protect others.

Roses and Thorns

The roses found a way to sprout this week despite some muggy conditions and plenty of thorny issues.

That number was 43.8% in Putnam County in the race that selected Roy Klopfenstein for the November general election. Auglaize County had the improbable happen, with more than 100% of Republicans turning out, thanks to 400 additional voters registering with the GOP.

Stone: Local foods are worth celebrating

Whether you grow your own food, or embrace the opportunities to support local producers including farmers’ markets, farm stands, or community supported agriculture shares, there is something special about the taste and experience of local foods. While our growing season may be shorter than some, there is plenty of time to enjoy many fruits and vegetables. Local Foods Week, Aug. 6-13, was designed to increase awareness of those foods grown or produced locally and celebrate everyone who has raised those garden goodies. In addition to enjoying the harvest here and now, it is also the perfect time to consider planting a fall crop of cool season veggies such as radishes, peas, beets, lettuce, spinach, kale, broccoli, and carrots. This is a great way to enjoy the harvest into the fall and maybe even into the winter with some protection. Temperatures will soon migrate down and hopefully Mother Nature will pump up the moisture — just not too much at once — making ideal growing conditions for a fall garden.
