LOCAL GOP FILES PROTEST
The Licking County Republican Party
has filed a protest with the Licking County Board of Elections
claiming that Brad Feightner, independent candidate for Municipal
Court Clerk, still is a member of the GOP and is therefore not
eligible to run as an independent.
Feightner Independent Candidate for Municipal Court Clerk
Feightner said he received the
protest on Tuesday the same day as the board of elections.
BOE Director Sue Penick said the protest has been forwarded
to the Licking County Prosecutor’s office.
Ohio House of Representatives has passed Senate Bill 26, which
prevents referees, coaches and other volunteers from being
criminally prosecuted for not complying with requirements that help
identify youth sports injuries like concussions. With the passage of
SB 26, coaches, officials and other volunteers will not be
criminally penalized for failure to act in accordance with the
measures outlined in House Bill 143. The legislation will now move
back to the Senate for concurrence.
It’s that time of the year. The Licking County Health Department will begin its mosquito
tonight in the Village of Kirkersville, KOA Campground in Buckeye
Lake and Buckeye Lake Estates Mobile Home Park.
All spraying will be conducted after dusk and the schedule is
subject to change.

Illinois and California, according to a press release from the insurance
company. State farm paid
out an estimated $5 million on the Ohio claims and more than $108
