Confidence is our most important product here in the community of Lima. All we have now is a better way to go.

I am a man of 90 who has lived in this town more than a half-century. What we first saw was how to get out fast. We came back in 1956. We received a care package from the chamber of commerce while we were in western Nebraska, where the economy depended on a quarter inch of rain for its wheat crop, whereas Lima has everything.

My second and last year there was a drought. We didnít go west. We came back to Ohio. We put down our feet in the rich soil of our farm district.

This giant market is exploding left and right. It may lead this state. That care package I didnít receive from no one. Personal experience, I got from the hardworking people of Lima.
