Five Erie County natives killed overseas will be honored in 2016. The Erie County Heroes Bill, which renames roadways in honor of the U.S. Armed Forces members who died in combat was signed last week by Governor John Kasich. Four were graduates of Huron High School: Special Forces Sgt. James Fekete, Army Sgt. Terrance Mesenburg, U.S. Navy Fireman James Baumer, and Marine Corps Sgt. Michael Finke Jr. The other is Army Specialist Charles Odums II, a graduate of Sandusky High School. Appropriate ceremonies will be scheduled next year to place signs, and to pay tribute to the five men.
Ohio voters will have plenty of choices in 2016.
Republicans and Democrats will run for various local, statewide and federal offices next year. Members of the Green Party will run for certain offices as well. Missing from the ballot will be the Libertarian Party. That’s because the Party is not a recognized political party in the state of Ohio. To gain recognition, a minor party must collect at least three percent of the vote in the most recent race for president or governor in Ohio, or turn in petitions with signatures of at least 500 people who voted in the last major election.
