Mulally paid $22 million in final year as Ford CEO

DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — Former Ford CEO Alan Mulally's compensation fell 5 percent to $22 million in his final year at the company, reflecting lower profits as the company invested heavily in new vehicles and plants. Ford reported 2014 compensation Friday in its proxy filing with the federal government. The company also announced that its ann

Trucking group against 75 mph

In a recent editorial, The Lima News editorial board opposed the proposed increase in the speed limit and we couldn't agree more. Unfortunately, the editorial purported that the Ohio Trucking Association “touts the economic benefits of being able to transport goods more quickly throughout the state.” But that premise is simply false; th

Using religion to hawk bias Reflecting on the Religion Section of The Lima News on March 26; Clayton Logan owes every gay individual in Lima an apology. Appropriating religion and/or the message of God to hawk her personal brand of bias along with her new entertainment video is repulsive. I hope she “Finally” sees the light. —

The Berger-Nixon money machine

For three years, I have endeavored to get the Berger and Nixon administration to roll back the mayor's salary to $320,000 per term. If not, let the taxpayers vote on it. They refused. Are you aware Mayor Berger made $446,000 in his previous four years? At the end of this four-year period his income will surge to $503,000, escalating $57,000? The

Lima News delivers service

A week ago I went out to bring my Lima News in. I took it out of the plastic sleeve to discover I had The Wall Street Journal. I called the lady who delivers my paper and got voice mail. Then I called The Lima News and talked to Jim Krumel. He was very nice about it and said if I didn't mind waiting he would deliver it, as I just lived around the

No unions? Think about it

I am responding to the article posted Feb 27th titled, “Walker ready for terrorists.” Wisconsin Governor Scott walker dropped the ball with his slam of unions and his comparison to terrorists. Unions fight for the working men and women in the United States. Terrorists want to kill every man and woman in the United States. Governor Walk

Eighty-seven years old.
Did I read that correctly?
Yep, that's what the story in The Lima News said last week. It noted an 87-year-old woman is the oldest member of a group of senior citizens who play pickleball every Tuesday and Thursday morning.
But as it turns out, she's not quite 87.
“I won't be 87 until May,” said Donna Cassell

Not a day over 87 and as young as ever

Giant thorn to The Lima News

Grade cards? The Lima News editorializes, repeatedly, about the Lima City Schools annual state report cards. There is never any worthwhile analysis of factors involved, such as the level of poverty, or the home conditions of many of the LCS students. That, in itself, is a major problem. I have commented, many times, about the inadequacies of The L

When looking at the Ohio jobs report that came out this month, the numbers make you feel good:
The state's jobless rate of 5.1 percent is at its lowest level since October 2001. It also continues to be below the U.S. rate, which was 5.5 percent in February. You feel even better when you hear Ohio has regained all the private-sector jobs that it lo

Ohio economic recovery not a simple tale

Robert and Gladys Ward are not the type of people who like to call attention to themselves. But there are few, if any, married couples like them in Allen County.
On Tuesday, they'll celebrate their 71st wedding anniversary. That takes them through 13 U.S. presidents — from Roosevelt to Obama — a man on the moon, and a time period when

Thank goodness for Frank Lombardo, a 34-year-old native from Lima who has a doctorate degree in wind science and engineering from Texas Tech University.

Lima News, get on the pot

I want to know why, if The Lima News is a reporting agency, it hasn't published any news about the legalization of medical and recreational marijuana in Ohio and across the country. Why hasn't The Lima News published articles about how theU.S. government has committed frauds aginst the American people over this plant being governmentowne since the

A stranger in the big city founded Rotary

The original Rotary Club was started in Chicago on Feb. 23, 1905, by Paul Harris. At that time, Harris found himself a stranger in a large city and took it upon himself to found a club where members not only would become acquainted with each other, but also would provide helpfulness to others. He sought out men who were engaged in a different type
