  • Family thanks Ghent Fire, dispatch for quick response

    Editor:

    On Sept. 16, a lawn-mower fire destroyed most of the interior of our attached garage and its contents. My wife made the discovery of the fire and, immediately, called 911 for assistance. Had it not been for the selfless, quick action of all those rendering aid, as well as the person on the other end of the 911 call, our home also would have been destroyed along with its contents. Personal injury and/or loss of life was more importantly avoided as well.

  • Ghent voters should take serious look at city’s candidates

    Voters who live in the city of Ghent have a serious task before them on Nov. 6.

    Nine candidates are vying for the four seats available on the city commission, for terms that will begin Jan. 1, 2013, and end Dec. 31, 2015. Only one incumbent is seeking re-election, which means there will be at least three new faces on the commission next year.
