14 hours ago | | | Email

AMERICAN TOWNSHIP — Traffic got rather thick on Elida Road after two two-car accidents occurred on Wednesday morning.Sgt. Randy Mason, with the American Township Police Department, said his department got a call at 10:30 a.m. about the accidents. The police are currently handling the accidents as two separate accidents.A car was traveling westbound on Elida Road and was turning into the Humane Society of Allen County when a second car rear-ended the first. That caused the first car to hit a third car. While the second car was stopped in the road, a fourth car hit the second car.The driver of the first car was transported to St. Rita’s Medical Center with minor injuries. Names weren’t immediately available.

 

From here to eternity

In Deuteronomy 4:1-4, the Lord makes it clear there are certain qualifications we must meet before we will be able to walk in the promises of God.If we intend to enter into a place of purpose, destiny, blessings, a place where there is no lack and where the enemy has no impact, there are things we must do. I am talking about our own personal Caanan land experience, which references the land the Lord promised the Israelites.

I went to a Lima City Board of Education meeting about the stadium issue with basically two questions:•Why does the name “Lima” not appear on the new sign?•Did the school board realize the positive entrance way the stadium and park could make for people entering the city from the east side?
